    Dag and co.

    Dag, alpha male. A dark brown wolf with hazel eyes that have gold flecks. He is calm and collected but ready to defend his pack. Maybe a crush maybe not. Deswrath, pack member. Male wolf. He is a lean white wolf with pure green eyes. Very quiet and maybe a bit overeactish. No crush. Dailia, female hunter. A carmel color coat with green eyes. She is a quick thinker and fast learner. Maybe a crush. Takea, female guard. A small grey wolf with white face marks amber eyes. She is strong despite her size. No crush
