Though Stormrift has prides itself on it's professionalism in all affairs, the pack is short on patience when it comes to lingering trespassers. They are nobles and strive for civility when deal with strangers at their borders, but they are fiercely protective of what they deem theirs. They are distrusting and skeptical of strangers by default, giving them limited options when they stay too long; leaving willingly, or you won't leave at all. In a pack where loyalty is valued greatly, warriors who serve well are rewarded well. With few neighbors, they receive few visitors they welcome.
Blanketed by a protective shield Stormrift has laid claim to Cloudrest, a frosted valley in the region of Wezen. These peaks and vast forests are home to the Stormguardians, residing beneath the stars. Safeguarded by ice-capped ledges, the Northerners live a life of secrecy, their seclusion from the other packs keeps them from the misfortunes of rivalry and war. Their home is no different. Their seclusion from the other packs in both territory and communication has turned Stormguard into a fortress.
Guided by the stars, Stormrift's faith follows the ideation of Paradise, better known as Valhalla, and the dead's part in their lives. Reuniting with their loved ones from the night sky, they appear as stars, embodying silver specks in the midnight blue, the watch from the heavens. Whispering to all they hold dear, the fallen beckon them forth to whisper their guidance and exchange soft pleasantries, providing a feeling of hope long lost. From the highest points, their whispers and smiles can be seen and heard.

Dating back from eleven generations, House Brehn are fiery individuals, born from ice. Known for their adaptation to the north and passionate natures, members of House Brehn are strong nationalists, hence their long standing reign. They are the pillars supporting Stormrift's foundation, an ancient bloodline. Regarded as sacred throughout the kingdom's history, they are true nationalists with strong ties to their culture and home.
Creators of the notion "the stars will guide", House Brehn are not only the founders of their kingdom but their religion as well. Believing in various deities, it wasn't irregular to see several days at a time devoted to ceremonies or cultural rites to celebrate their gods and their beloved winter. Their faith is unquestionable, devising a doctrine now deemed national, native to them. You won't find another soul more entranced by the stars than them.
Only wolves born into the house are eligible to inherit the throne. Unlike some packs, however, Stormguard does not limit it's heir based on gender; it is the first-born's duty to claim their place as sovereign. If something obstructs their abilities to Stormguard, another heir from House Brehn will be chosen in their place.
