“Beware o’ too-confident kitten, I am LaChat Sauvage, Queen of my forest, where there are many who are sentient, and my companion is Akecheta-Apenimon, CanineKnight of the Realm the sentient instructor of WolvenKing LeToil duNord [Star], WolvenKing of this forest.”
Taken aback, Guépard quickly concluded these were not ordinary creatures, and he had heard of this “wolvenking,” and his lieutenant, Renegade, “This small canine has quite a title, she is a warrior?”

WolvenKing LeToil DuNord [Star], at PepperCooper’s urging, assumed command of the very first known alliance between sentient canines and wolves while they waited for the return of LaChat and Daisy. He ordered his “troops” to silently spread out along the west side, and Flutters was assigned aerial reconnaissance.
