<Character name>: What the—?
Rytlock Brimstone: Don't care what you heard. It wasn't me.
Crecia Stoneglow: I'm right though, aren't I? You don't care about the Legions. The charr. You just want to get him back.
Rytlock Brimstone: YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I— ...I want a lot of things back.
Crecia Stoneglow: Then you never should've left.
<Character name>: Rytlock?
Rytlock Brimstone: Commander, hey. We, ah, found Bangar's trail heading deeper into the mountains. We're behind, but not by much.
<Character name>: You two all right? Need backup?
Crecia Stoneglow: No, we're fine.

Braham: Commander! It's Garm. He ran out of the village—just...bolted out across the lake.
<Character name>: I think Garm can take care of himself—
Braham: Maybe. I'm going after him.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Braham, do not go out onto the lake! That's an order!
Braham: I'll let you know what I find.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Damn it!

Braham: Hey, Jhavi? Commander?
<Character name>: You find Garm?
Braham: Garm and...something else. We might have a way to stop Drakkar.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: We're listening.
Unknown: (growling)
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Braham? Who is that?
Braham: You should just come to me. Northwest corner of the lake. Old shrine. Can't miss it.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: That's right near Drakkar.
<Character name>: Yeah.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: We should bring backup. Just in case.
<Character name>: No. If Braham is... We can't risk more people. Just you and me, Jhavi. I'll meet you there. Be ready.

At Sifhalla Ruins

Jhavi Jorasdottir: That's twice you've disappeared on us. What's going on?
Braham Eirsson: I, uh... I'm sorry. I just... I've been hearing—
Garm: (bark)
Braham Eirsson: He just needs to explain...
<Character name>: Braham, listen to me. Whatever's been talking to you, it's not what you think—
Jhavi Jorasdottir: By the—! Wolf Spirit!
Braham Eirsson: I brought them, Great Wolf.
If norn and follower of Bear:
Wolf Spirit: Sister Bear has told us many stories of your deeds. Your strength is legendary among norn.
Wolf Spirit: You have brought much honor to Bear. To all of us.
<Character name>: You honor me with your words, Wolf Spirit.
If norn and follower of Wolf:
Wolf Spirit: My cub. It has been a long time since you've run with our pack.
<Character name>: Great Wolf. I lead my own pack now. But I haven't forgotten you.
Wolf Spirit: No. You've brought my spirit with you across this realm. Proven yourself a leader among wolves.
<Character name>: You honor me with your words, Wolf Spirit.
If norn and follower of Raven:
Wolf Spirit: Brother Raven may be loathe to share his secrets with us, but he cannot help but praise your deeds.
Wolf Spirit: You have brought much honor to Raven. To all of us.
<Character name>: You honor me with your words, Wolf Spirit.
If norn and follower of Snow Leopard:
Wolf Spirit: Snow Leopard speaks highly of your deeds. You hunt creatures that proved to be beyond even our abilities.
Wolf Spirit: You have brought much honor to Snow Leopard. To all of us.
<Character name>: You honor me with your words, Wolf Spirit.
Otherwise:
Wolf Spirit: You do not know me, but I know you. Though you are not norn, your deeds are worthy of their greatest legends.
<Character name>: I'm honored. Thank you.[verification requested]
Wolf Spirit: Now. You are all wondering why I've called for you.
Braham Eirsson: He has a plan to stop Drakkar using the lost Spirits of the Wild.
Braham Eirsson: Sorry, you probably wanted to say that.
<Character name>: But Cloudseeker was certain—
Wolf Spirit: The kodan ignore our voices. They cannot speak to Ox, Eagle, or Wolverine. But Braham can.
Braham Eirsson: Why me?
Wolf Spirit: You cracked the Fang of the Serpent. Fate now decrees you will either slay Jormag or fall to Jormag.
Wolf Spirit: All Spirits know this. Even when taken and corrupted. You must go to their shrines. Demand their power.
Braham Eirsson: Demand? Will they even listen to me?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: No. You'll have to make them.
Wolf Spirit: You are a norn of prophecy, but you are not yet true norn. Any can wear the wolf, but only true norn can become the wolf.
Braham Eirsson: You're saying if I do this, I'll be able to...become the wolf?
Wolf Spirit: Take the lost Spirits' power. Use it against Drakkar. Only then will you find a place for my spirit within your own.
Braham Eirsson: Wait—! Damn it.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Wolf trusts you. He believes you can do this. And so do I.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah. Okay. Commander, I'll meet you at those shrines. And I'll be ready.
<Character name>: I know you will. Jhavi, can you and the kodan put the pressure on Drakkar? Keep its eyes off us?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: It would be my pleasure.

My story[edit]

Bjora Marches loading screen.jpg

I offered to help the kodan of Still Waters Speaking and found plenty in need throughout the valley. Then Braham got in touch. Turns out the Wolf Spirit has a plan of his own: find the three lost Spirits of the Wild and use their power to destroy Drakkar. I'm on my way to meet Braham at the first shrine now.
