    Ciara looks from Solomon to Bear, then to the others, and hesitantly asks, "Is Pequad the ship spirit you were talking about? Has anyone even been in to check on it in the last few days?" Then she looks back to Bear and anxiously asks, "Would that mean removing the protection ruins we have up here? It would make us all very vulnerable."

    E frowns at this and says, "So what? I like the idea, take them out on our territory! Set up traps and hit them when they aren't expecting it."

    There is a great rustling sound punctuated by the snapping of incinerated tree trunks as the spirit steps forward. "I am Immovable Hunter," the spirit declares as its massive form finally comes into view. The thing is about fifteen feet tall, and in the form of an upright bear, it's massive lumbering arms tipped with curled aqualine claws. It's fur is a wild, almost luminescent ghost white, it's muzzle bristling with oversized sharp teeth. "You have come upon my den Uratha called Bear," the Unamatha Azim says, though its red eyes have gone from a furious warning to placid curiosity.

    Bear frowns, visions of Ciara getting attacked in some motel room dancing in his head, "Even after Obliterates is dealt with, the hordes will remain, at least for a time. If we are vulnerable, having sacrificed our shelter, the rats would have a much easier time dealing us the same fate as our predecessors, and then go right back to what they were up to, if without their king."

    "How quickly could we get wards of this sort up on a new place for us to use as our shelter?"

    The massive bear spirit tilts its head to the side comically, as if confused, or considering an odd thought. Then its head rights, its massive ears twitch, and its lips turn up in a toothy grin. "You wish to learn from me Uratha," it asks with a chuckle, "What is it that you wish to learn?"

    The massive bear spirit's head bobs up and down in a lackadaisical nod. "I see," Immovable Hunter says, its red eyes narrowing as if deep in contemplation, "you mean the Beshilu, do you not? They are undoubtedly a blight on these lands that have been allowed to spread too far. These lands have grown barren due to their growing rot, and the hunt has become harder and harder. What do you propose then, Uratha Bear; that we form some sort of alliance?" This is said with a child like curiosity, underscored only by the spirits maw filled with overgrown fangs that could possibly sever a Gauru's arm from the shoulder.

    ”True…” Kara said, mulling over the issue of trying to stop it from fleeing. ”I mean…if we hit it with the sprinklers early enough it might weaken it to the point where even if it runs…like...we could down it before it gets too far? Maybe...some bear traps. Or...like...fishing harpoons? Somehow...tie it down, y'know?"

    Bear shrugs, "Think we could use a couple harpoon guns? Its a fishing town, there are bound to be plenty. Use those to chain it down a bit, go ahead and smear the harpoon tips with some of the bane while we're at it. We'll probably need a lot more than is practical to truly tie that thing down, but they might be enough to slow the thing."

    Bear nods to the spirit, "There is the Beshilu, and then there is the threat that drove the Beshilu inland. We must face both eventually, but we are closer to dealing with the rats. As to an alliance, would you be willing to contemplate such a thing?"

    As if summoned by magic, the Reveler's voice echoes at the volume of a whisper in the warehouse, "I have many tricks my dear, but I am afraid that I may not be strong enough to contain such a powerful spirit. I witnessed the strength of He Who Obliterates Breathing with you in the tunnels. It must truly be one of the oldest spirit in these lands. However, when I am called upon, I shall do what I can to assist the Anchor Wolves in their battle with this plague monster."

    The spirit's eyes seem to widen in confusion at Bear's remark about another threat. But disregarding this Immovable Hunter says, "Your offer intrigues me Uratha. I shall ponder such an alliance, and shall take into consideration any offers you may have to sweeten the deal." With this the bear spirit grins again, its long pink tongue lapping hungrily against its massive pointed teeth.

    "Trapping this thing out here is going to be tough because it'll be able to run to the spirit world, but it's going to be more powerful on the Hisil," Blaze said, "maybe what we can do is lure it into a fight here, near a locus, and have a trap set up on the other side so when it runs through it's already injured. The bane will injure it if we can land it on the spirit, or coat weapons with it, but I'm thinking on top of that, we should be soaking our claws and jaws in the stuff. Maybe we spread it around on the ground in the Hisil when it tries to run."

    "We're going to have to make sure it's dead, too, probably by dumping a few buckets of bane on its form after it's down for the count," Blaze added.

    Solo smiled quietly, it was good, the day before the hunt, preparation and coordination. The thrill of killing Hosts had gotten stale several hundred rats ago and he lacked Kara's ability to push past all the distraction and focus on the music. He relished these quiet moments of companionship before the resumption of chaos. Then again, what he really missed was the quiet of nature. He would never again feel comfortable living among people. He thought of his old territory and one memory caught his attention; Mountain forest, early winter, cold crisp air. Belly full, humanity forgotten many moons ago. A predator chases a rabbit through a field of lavender. An old memory stirred an even older one, something learnt from a book several lives ago 'They used lavender in those old plague masks, put it in the beak, thought it would stop the plague getting in through their nostrils.
    'Blaze, if we bring that thing into the Flesh, do you think a field of lavender would... count as it's Bane?'
