History

Caern Totem: Kolanu

Kolanu.jpg

Ban: Followers of Kolanu must seek to protect and nurture the unique diversity and history of the city of Houston. They must protect historical sites and ethnic neighborhoods that give Houston its uniqueness.

Goals: Kolanu is the embodiment of Houston's spiritual essence. He has changed as Houston has changed. He certainly absorbed many of the rugged, individualist ideals of the city's namesake, but as Houston has grown more diverse, so too has the Spirit. His goals are to nurture and protect the "Houstoness" of Houston. That means, dynamic change with a strong connection to the past as well as to the bayous and coastal plains that give the city life.

Notes: Kolanu often appears as an image of General Sam Houston, as he was in life, but he also manifests as his namesake raven, though he is not of Raven's brood. He has kinship with the Uktena tribe because of Sam Houston's kinship with Native kinfolk during his life. Kolanu is NOT an ancestor spirit nor a memory spirit. He does not possess more than a basic knowledge of the life events of General Sam Houston. He does, however, have many of his more publicly lauded personality traits: fairness, stubbornness, and a strong egalitarian streak.

Sept Description

The Houston Sept had been in existence a very long time. The Sept of the Lady’s Blessing had been established by the Uktena, along with some Fianna among the white settlers of Texas, and some Spanish Shadowlords as early as 1886. The site that was chosen for the Cairn was far from the city, being a spring that fed two of Houston’s waterways, Buffalo Bayou and Langham Creek. After the destruction of the Great Cairn by the Dark Brigade, so many of Houston’s Garou died that only a handful of local packs were left. Once the Shard Seeds were discovered, the alliance of packs that had been holding the city together was able to retrieve one from the Sept of Forgotten Waters and forge a new Sept in the process.

Sept Timeline

  • 1886 - The Sept of the Lady’s Blessing was founded.
  • 2009 - In a series of coordinated attacks in early September, a regiment of the Dark Brigade, led by two packs of Black Spiral Dancers, overwhelms the Cairn’s defenses and destroys the Cairn Heart. Losses among the Sept are nearly 80%.
  • 2010 - In January, The Mokole Wallow of Brazos de Memoria, Southwest of Houston, falls to the Gnostic Plague despite aid assistance from the Garou and a Gurahl Theurge.
  • 2014 - An Alliance of two packs retrieves its new Caern Seed in March from the Sept of Forgotten Waters. The seed is planted on March 2nd, Texas Independence Day, under the Full Moon. The Alliance leads to the formation of a new sept, the Sept of the Bayou's Rage.
  • 2017 - Chronicle Start
  • 2018 - An attack from the local BSD hive precipitated a bold move to uproot the seed shard and move it to the original site of the Sept of the Lady's Blessing. While this weakened the seed, it also ensured its survival. The sept was renamed Sept of the Bayou's Blessing.
  • 2019 - A call to the greater Garou Nation was answered and the local BSD Pit was destroyed.
