Cour des Miracles

Formed on June 3rd, 2009, as 'Souls's newest pack, Cour des Miracles has only had half a year to make history, but it’s certainly been an eventful year for us! The six original members were Jacquez Trouillefou, Ruri Aceline, Svara Thames, Firefly Sadira, Leroy, and Haven Aatte. Jacquez and Ruri knew one another for what seems like forever, while Svara and Firefly had both been kicked out of their original pack, Dahlia de Mai, for different reasons. Leroy left his pack to be with Svara, and they had a brief period as mates before breaking up. Haven finally joined the group when Ruri told Jacquez of her friend in the city, who was in very bad shape, and the King took him in. Jacquez and Svara were the original leaders, but through various events, Svara and Firefly both left and rejoined the pack at roughly the same point in time. Both returned, and while Firefly still remains, Svara killed herself very shortly after returning. There was another change in leadership in November, when Jacquez decided to finally place members in the empty leadership ranks. Ruri Aceline stepped up as the Dauphine and second-in-command, while Vigilante Haskel was placed in the Constable rank.

One big event was the horse race with AniWaya. Six riders and their horses raced, while many others from both packs watched from the stands of the track. Despite his troubles at the time, Haven Aatte was the first place winner with his horse, Drogon. The pack’s first litter was born to Ayita Catori and Leroy, not a mated pair, resulting in one boy and one girl, Kable and Amaranth. Various other puppies made an appearance in the pack, including: the unknown daughter of Jacquez, Jontae; the surprise daughter of Svara for a very brief period of time, Night; and Ruri’s young sister, Sylvie. A young mother also joined with her son, adding Caillen to the puppy ranks of the pack while his mother, Alaine, took on the role of healer for the pack. Love bloomed between Ruri and one of the longest standing members, Heath, although there was quite a bit of trouble when Jacquez found out. Along with this, Vigilante and Ayita grew much closer, despite her tryst with Leroy, who later had a drunken encounter with another male pack member, Strelein, who has been in and out of the pack for quite some time.

2009 was not completely positive, however, as tensions ran high with Dahlia de Mai due to Svara’s running drama with their Lilium, Haku Soul, who later returned to question Ruri, which only angered Jacquez more. After Svara’s sudden death, however, things seemed to cool down quite a bit, and we see much less tension now than we did in the early stages of the pack. All in all, the first half a year of the pack has been prosperous; the pack numbers have grown and dwindled, but generally, they remained at a healthy level. Not only did puppies join, but we also had our first litter, and we expect that 2010 will be an even better year for us as the pack of strays and mutts continues to grow!
