Title: Sam and Mercy Pack
Post by: Reu on January 16, 2008, 12:41:27 am
in Iron Kissed Samuel considers Mercy his pack.  My question is, does this mean that he is not a lone wolf anymore?

He is still a "Lone Wolf".  However werewolves need other wolves.  The wolf is very unhappy on his own, and with a werewolf that means unstable.  Samuel needs Mercy for company and for all the other things he would get from a pack. 
Patty

But Mercy isn't a wolf, so technically, he is a lone wolf.

I would say that he and Mercy are more like family, just as wolves can have humans that are friends and family, that's what Mercy and Sam are like. Just like I call those people I would drop anything for and go help them my family, even though we aren't blood related. He could be calling her his pack as a way of saying she's his family.

I thing Reu hit the nail on the head.   Patty and I have quite a number of blood relatives, and we've been blessed with many good friends.  Some of those friends we consider family, even though there's no blood relation.  In fact, I'd probably risk more to help some of our 'adopted' family that I would many of my actual relatives.

Also Mercy grew up in the Marroc's pack, which was the same pack Samuel belonged to.   I would expect pack mates (especially those who were close) to still consider themselves pack even if one or both changes pack affiliations.

Just my $0.02, and I don't have any insider knowledge on this one!
