No man or woman is born into the Wolfbane’s Winter Den. Instead citizens of Imperial, alienated from their clan, may choose to partake in the initiation rites of the Wolfbane fellowship and continue their devoted service to the betterment of Imperial, the Serenity and the Brotherhood all in equal measure. However, these initiation rites are by no means simple; they are complex and life threatening tasks which regardless of the participant’s age or physical capabilities will not change. They are inscribed upon the rune pillars of the Wolfbanes at the Paladine Palace on Victoria, where they have stood since the Venusian Crusade. Inscribed upon the key stones, it is stated that the participant must portray a sense of strength, both inner and outer. This strength cannot be mustered by unnatural means or magick. Before any trials begin, tests are made for drugs, bewitchments or cybernetic enhancement. After the trials, newly initiated Wolfbairns are sworn to secrecy and any failures are executed to preserve any further loss of honour; the mystical rites of the Winter Den may only be known by the Wolfbanes and the Serenity herself. After months, or sometimes years, of desperate trials and abuse from their chieftains, the successful initiates are allocated to the vocation that suits them best, which more often than not, results in joining the illustrious Special Forces squad, the Wolfbane Commandos. A life in the commandos, like any Wolfbane regiment, is a harsh one; a life in near-constant battle and preparation for it. Wolfbanes are considered by many as the best non-specialised warriors in the Solar System. They are an utterly unstoppable force of aggression and stealth in equal measure, the mere mention of their presence can turn inexperienced enemy soldiers into trembling messes. A notable pack of the Wolfbane Commandos is the Berserkers, claimed by the most superstitious to be protected by rites performed by the secretive Rune-sayers. These rituals are conducted on the eve of battle, and drive the Berserkers into a maniacal bloodlust where even the most grievous of wounds are ignored until the battle has finished and the magick has faded. The Berserkers have no regard for danger and proudly proclaim their presence by howling terrifying war-cries, so negating and shunning the usual infiltration tactics employed by the more discreet Wolfbane Commandos. The Berserkers are the only sect of the Winter Den to employ colours on the battlefield. Their banner is carried into battle, reminiscent of soldiers of old, rallying the broken and spurring any who look upon its carved-totemic shaft and awe-inspiring flag. The Wolfbane Commandos are by no means a lesser warrior than the Berserkers, as they too are spoken about in fables and folklore. Like mythic warriors of old, they are so adept in the art of infiltration that children are told that the Wolfbanes are the spirits of soldiers lost, resurrected as ghosts in the service of the Brotherhood that will wipe the solar system of the Dark Symmetry. In reality, the Wolfbane Commandos are more than capable of engaging foes twice their size or forces that double their numbers and still emerge victorious. Wolfbane Commando packs can be found on every planet occupied by humans and will join forces with the other megacorporations, with the exception of Cybertronic, so long as the price and stakes are right. Though they are mercenaries, they will never act to reduce the power of Imperial, for truly, they are servants of Her Imperial Serenity.
