Wolverine

Corrupted Wolverine Spirit is one of the lesser Spirits of the Wild, and the natural embodiment of all wolverines,[1] who stayed behind to fight the Elder Dragon Jormag during the norn exodus.

Biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

As the natural embodiment of all wolverines,[1] Wolverine was revered as one of the Spirits of the Wild among the norn.

Following the Elder Dragon Jormag's awakening in 1165 AE, the norn tried to defend their lands in the Far Shiverpeaks from its corruption and destruction, but they were no match for the Ice Dragon. Wolverine was one of the Spirits of the Wild—alongside Ox and Eagle—who stayed behind after Owl's apparent demise and fought the Elder Dragon to give the norn the time to prepare for their exodus to the south.[2] The norn did not know what had happened to Wolverine since the exodus, and the Spirit was revered with great sorrow, along with the other Spirits who had stayed behind, at the dedicated shrines of Lost Spirits' Hallow in Hoelbrak.[3]

No norn had been blessed to serve as havroun to Wolverine in generations although it was unknown if this was because of Wolverine's demise or because it was common for weaker Spirits, or those not close to the physical realm of Tyria, to be without a havroun.[4]

The Icebrood Saga[edit]

During the Vigil's exploration of Bjora Marches in 1332 AE, several Aberrant creatures with a green aura—ranging from Vigil members to local wildlife—were found roaming around various magically potent locations such as the Aberrant Forest and the Ravenfrost Caverns. In the latter area, Sons of Svanir necromancers were conducting macabre rituals on victims with Ritual Anchors and turning the summoned spirits into hostile Aberrant.

After learning that the Aberrant were minions of Jormag, Researcher Yarixx found a way to manipulate their spirit essence of Valor to turn them strong and weak against other minions of Jormag—Fallen and the Sons of Svanir—who had been infused with the essences of Resilience and Vigilance related to other lost Spirits of the Wild. Beyond the existence of the Aberrant and their ties to Jormag, there was no other clue about the ultimate fate of Wolverine.

As the years passed, the fleeing kodan of Still Waters Speaking who were stranded in Bjora Marches discovered the Lost Spirits' actual fate, however. Ox, Eagle and Wolverine had failed to defeat Jormag, and had been taken and corrupted via the Ice Dragon's tempting whispers which had offered them power. Drakkar, Jormag's champion, gained the corrupted Spirits' protection while it fed on their infinite well of magic.[5][6]

In 1333 AE, Wolf summoned Braham Eirsson, who had fulfilled the first part of a norn prophecy via cracking Jormag's impervious fang, to Sifhalla Ruins in Bjora Marches. There, the Great Spirit instructed Braham and his companions to travel to the corrupted Spirits' shrines and demand their power in order to use their magic against Drakkar and stop the far-reaching whispers, which were plaguing the Far Shiverpeaks, so Braham could become a true norn.

Braham fulfilled Wolf's quest by visiting the shrines. With the help of the Pact Commander, norn shamans and other adventurers who were dedicated to the Spirits, he was able to summon each of the Spirits so he could ask for their aid. Once the party had cleansed the corrupted Wolverine shrine, the Spirit initially dismissed Braham as a coward without valor, figthing only for himself, only to impress and to prove out of fear. Braham assuredly admitted that he wants indeed to prove himself and earn his legend, and added that doubt is not a weakness, but makes him want to be stronger, knowing he can be better. Wolverine was convinced enough to give Braham his valor for the battle ahead.

After Braham had gained all the three Spirits' blessings and the Commander had smashed the idols of Jormag whose magic had been rejuvenating the dragon champion, the party tracked Drakkar into its lair where the whispers tried to turn the party members against one another. Crecia Stoneglow and Rytlock Brimstone fell to the whispers and attacked their companions, but the Pact Commander successfully tricked them to direct their attacks on the icy walls of the lair instead to force Drakkar into the open. As the dragon champion emerged from the ice, Braham channeled the powers of Ox, Eagle, and Wolverine who manifested in the lair. Stripped of its magical protection, Drakkar was defeated in a blinding flash, and the Lost Spirits vanished as the dragon champion drew its last breath.

Despite their victory over Drakkar, the corrupted Spirits were unable to wrestle free from Jormag's influence. Wolverine's Aberrant minions continued fighting alongside the icebrood and the corrupted charr of the Frost Legion who had emerged in the Drizzlewood Coast.
