Arbiter of Malice
Michael Olsen, Arbiter of Malice, is a recently promoted Elder Philodox of the Get of Fenris. His home Sept is the Sept of the Oak Vale where he has been its leader since mid January 2018. A member of the Oak Vale Sept for a relatively short period Arbiter of Malice has served the Sept as its Warder, briefly as its Truthcatcher and now as its Sept Leader. Arriving at the Sept in February 2017 intent on providing aid and development of the Sept, Michael lost his Packmate and the Sept's Leader Valhalla's Mercy to an assassination by Western Concordiat allies. Having overseen the trial of involved parties from the Sept of the Oak Vale Michael went on to challenge and unseat the Ananasi who had claimed Sept Leader in response to another Athro of the Oak Vale's belligerence. Under his leadership, the Sept of the Oak Vale planted a caern seed in August 2018.
Arbiter of Malice is also known for having banned specific members of the Kinfolk population from attending his Sept in January 2018. As a result the Kinfolk bandied together to protest the ban by withdrawing intimacy from their partners. The ban came to an end in April with 'Spector announcing that an amicable and fair resolution had been achieved.
Michael is a person who makes decisions based on reason rather than emotion. Descended from a proud line of Get of Fenris heroes, Michael enjoyed a life of privilege, raised on stories of the deeds of his famous ancestors. Get of Fenris are known for their intolerances; due to involvement in child protection litigation Michael has developed an intolerance for those who physically harm children.
