The Silver Crown is a legendary relic of the Silver Fangs tribe, gifted to them by their totem, Falcon. Whoever can wear the crown has the right of kingship over all Garou, and the power to force others to obey their commands. If someone unworthy of such power attempts to wear the crown, it will burn through their skull and kill them.
The crown was lost for centuries until Jonas Albrecht and his pack went on a quest to find it, in order to assert Jonas' leadership of the North Country Protectorate over Arkady Iceclaw. The crown was uncovered in a hidden caern in New York City, and Albrecht was able to wear it, with the blessing of Falcon.
