The Winter Council is the meeting, decreed that when the Talons were old enough, they would be bound into packs for the express purpose of reinstating the Impergium in places where it was most needed.
Before the Great Storm in the East but after the First War began again, the elders of our tribe met, secretly, in a small sept called the Weeping Daughter. There, they decided that the other tribes would be too slow to appreciate the progress we had made with the new Impergium. They debated and fought, and finally decided that over the coming years, the fiercest Red Talon cubs would be taken to the best-hidden caerns and taught the ways of the tribe, without ever seeing a human being or even a human-born Garou. The first of the packs was formed recently, bound together by Griffin and sent to the human-hive called Montreal. We have not yet heard of their doings, but surely such pure Garou are destined for great things. The other tribes do not know of these Winter Packs, and they cannot know, for they would surely oppose us. But as time goes on, and the tribes see how easily the humans shrink back to their hovels when the true predators come for them, they too will lend us their cubs for these packs.
