To wolf, family is everything.
Wolf is a hunter, and Wolf hunts not for sport or trophies, but for survival, and without knowing it, plays a very important part in the great Creative Order of things by taking out the old ones, the weak ones, keeping the herds strong, and swiftly ending the suffering of those whose time has come to an end.
Wolf is absolutely at home in nature, and wolf is strong, intelligent, caring.
Sometimes wolf extends its caring to those not born of wolf's own race; wolf has the capacity to do that, and invite others into their family, let them take part in wolf's path and the adventures of life.
Wolf hears and sees everything; wolf scents the air and knows the seasons; and wolf raises the voice to fill the night and let everyone know that they are here.
Wolf is loyal to the end, and beyond the end, will walk the spirit path with you, to protect you, to warn you of those things that your eyes can't see, your ears cannot hear.
Wolf may guide you and briefly lead you, but in the end, wolf will follow you on your trails, which are by nature, other than wolf's own.
Wolf is the spirit and totem of leaders, of those who take responsibility for the well being of the younger and weaker ones, who look out for them, protect them, provide for them and fight for them.
