So, Morag has crossed the MacDermott border. Daring!
The Malcadh is Born
The Pup's Tummfraw
Shibaan, the obea of the Mac Duncan clan, tracks down Morag, a pregnant she-wolf who has gone by-lang due to the fear of birthing a malcadh.
Morag gives birth to three pups. Two tawny and one silvery grey. She notices that the silvery grey one has a slight splay in his front left paw, but she figures it will disappear in a few days.
The Pup's name
Faolan, I shall name you Faolan. You are my gift from the river.
Shibaan finds Morag and due to the clan's laws, malcadhs must be taken to a spot where they have a high chance of dying. This spot is called a tummfraw. Shibaan takes the pup and puts him on an icy riverbank where the freezing water will surely kill him.
A mother grizzly bear is greiving on the riverbank because of her only cub killed by a cougar when something sudenly latches onto her paw. She lifts up her paw to find a little wolf attached to it.
The bear decides to take care of the wolf pup as her own. She names the pup Faolan. Fao meant both "river" and "wolf" and lan was the word for "gift". Faolan was her "gift from the river".
