About Willow Ridge

Elettra Archer's natural drive for leadership and desire for greatness (to put her royal name to the test) would not go unsettled for long. After suffering much heartache within the Grizzly Hollow pack, the long standing Second was left distrusting of a handful of it's members due to the perceived betrayal their abandonment incited. Feeling she could no longer live happily while continuously having to watch her own back, Elettra broke away. Unlike other packs to have formed before her own, Elettra began alone. There were no siblings, no friends, and no mate, at her side. Once more, she started from the bottom up, determined to not allow anything, or anyone, keep her from her goal.

On her wanderings as a rogue, it was Remy, Koda, Kyrie, Reed, and Narime who aided in the forming of Willow Ridge as founding members. As the first male to join the group and without a love to call her own, it was Koda whom Elettra trusted to stand at her side as her leading partner.

It was within the heart of Drooping Willows that she sought refuge; discovering a rock formation fitting enough to call home. Elettra called her promised members and staked her claim, birthing Willow Ridge in the summer of 2012.

Here you will be handed nothing and earn everything through blood and sweat. The wild demands the weak to satisfy it's unending hunger, and the Wolves of the Ridge will give up no one in it's family to this craving. You need an iron will and a everlasting desire to succeed to make it within Willow Ridge. A sense of loyalty and respect will bring us together, and lead us to triumph.

Pack pride colors for Willow Ridge are "Willow Bark Brown (#762900)" and "Dried Herb (#E8AB70)".

Pack Information

Information on what is required of your wolf  as a Willow Ridge member and the life they may lead there.

Willow Ridge is not shy on the concept of law and judgement. You will be tested as a new member of the pack for your right to be here and you will be consistantly pushed to do your best. Wolves with a high drive for work and success are best fitting in this pack, as laziness will make for an easy ticket out. Their pack motto is "All which is Just", meaning that there are no set few values such as loyalty, family or love to focus upon within the pack, but that the pack craves "All which is Just" from their members: Will, Strength, Loyalty, Honor and without a doubt, Respect and Unity. Willow Ridge is open to any alignment of wolf, though more Lawful personalities will be an 'easier fit'. If your wolf if specifically breaking away from their birth home in order to find love and have a family then Willow Ridge is not for you, as breeding rights is specific to the leaders as tradition. Please take in much consideration that your wolf is to obey the laws of the pack in order to live there successfully without punishment and/or banishment. Remember, being a member of Willow Ridge is a privilege, not a right.

Pack Policies

Number of Leaders (+ Gender)
  • 1 or 2 Leaders — 2 being of opposite gender
Inactivity Rules (+ Promotions for Leaders)
  • In the event a leader fails their activity checks the pack will default to 1 leader until the inactive leader can reclaim their position if it has not been claimed. The inactive leader becomes I. Subordinate.
  • Should a II ranked wolf want to challenge an inactive leader, they must have a spar with the active leader. If they win, they become II. Leader. They will need to challenge the inactive leader separately to gain the I. rank.
  • Should the pack fall to 1 leader due to the other leader going completely inactive, dying, dropping down willingly, or leaving the pack, etc... Anyone wishing to take place in leadership must ether challege the current single leader, be offered the rank by the 1 leader or be accepted by the rest of the pack in general.
