Nestled at the foothills of low-reach mountains, a rocky outcropping cradles a tranquil lake. Crystalline waters do not waver; the glassy surface reflects a perfect mirror image of the sparse trees that have rooted here. The water is unusually azure, almost tropical in appearance despite the mountainous climate. The stillness and serenity truly offer a respite to weary travelers who have found this haven in their wanderings. The noise of a distant waterfall sounds somewhere nearby, and despite the calm that lingers here ... there are many secrets to be discovered if one looks closely enough.

UNGRATEFUL MOOSE ─
Sequestered away in a mountain oasis, it is a symbol of new life, of new beginnings. Elysium was created for the holy, the humble, and even the sinful wishing for respite; all of those who wish to worship the gods or simply live out their time in joy and freedom. All lost and vagrant souls are welcome in the fold of this deep-knit family, bound together by goodwill as much as they are by love for one another, and those who enter their ranks are treated with fairness and respect.
While still believing there are other ways to resolve conflict outside of violence, they do understand that some bloodshed may be necessary for the continuation of a paradise dedicated to sheltering the lost, or simply those who may be fleeing unfavorable circumstances.
To stand up for those who cannot stand - that is their holy mission.
It is expected of all members to contribute by nourishing and uplifting one another in both body and spirit, providing comfort for the lonely, and working together to create a home for those who seek light in a world of darkness.
Small prey and precious trinkets notwithstanding, it is expected that all members pool their kills and resources so that everyone may reap the benefits of a bountiful life.
Respect your neighbors, even if they disagree
While Elysium was created primarily to worship the Five in peace, wolves of all faiths are welcome within its stone walls, and their right to individual freedom is to be acknowledged and not overstepped. Unless the god in question has horrible wolven sacrifices or cannibalistic rituals ... then probably not.
Rank through deeds
Whether it be pack events or through extraordinary feats (or even the small ones that add up), moving up through the pack hierarchy is something that is earned with time and grace; events are also held at the end of every season at a minimum, giving the winner of the games a chance to move up for proving their skill in a particular area.
No soul turned away
If any wolf seeks sanctuary, it is by a divine obligation that they are taken in; no matter how abhorrent, even the lowly and the sinful will be welcomed if they ask it. However, exceptions will be made where if they should seek destruction, they will be cast out.
Only one wolf from each job class may earn the title of Divine (class), and those five make up the Council. They are the mouths of the gods, and give counsel to the High Priestess and help keep the pack running smoothly.
Example: Acolyte → (base job class title) → Blessed (job class title) → Divine (job class title)
