The Tapestry of Terror
The Towers Clan were once Viking explorers, and Werewolves, they have been werewolves since the All-Father snatched up their ancestors Geri and Freki, the Sons of Varg. In those ancient days the clan followed Fenris, and were Blood Talons to the last. But one thousand years ago the spirits went silent to the Blood Talons that came to Greenland. They made the camp, settled and took territory, but the local Spirit courts would not bow. The fighting was vicious and bloody and only a handful of the Clan of Varg survived, and those left to sail down the coast. The explorers made it into Hudson Bay, and mistakenly went down the river into the Great Lakes region. The settled in what would become Wisconsin, and eventually travelled as far upriver as Black River Falls.
The Towers Clan has always had a tradition of having its sons prove who is the Strongest. The Strongest then upholds the Towers name, the others all choose new names upon marriage or the birth of their first child. The Strongest of the current Towers men is John Towers, and his family is a melding of John Towers’ and Alice Irons’ bloodlines. They have seven children and many secrets. Their firstborn son came into this world two months early, in April of 1990. Then on June 5th, Sarah Jane was born. In early September of 1992, Alice gave birth to their twin girls. For six years there was nothing, then Alice came up pregnant again, with twins in 1998, delivering a boy and girl in early November of that year. Then a ways after Y2K came and went, Alice was dealing with what the doctors decided had to be her last pregnancy, also twins. But a complication arose, and only one child survived, Jacob Oriah Towers was born on January 1st, 2001.
