ADDENDUM: While testing fur samples, I was shocked to find that there was in fact an influence of Corruption upon this specimen, an unholy and malevolent magick as great as anything that ever rose from the pits of Erebus. Indeed, as witnessed by it's stunted growth, it was ireedeemably twisted towards the path of Destruction. The fact that these were holy blades that slew the beast only confirms it. This creature was not a part of the greater species of Lycans as we know them. I no longer expect any repercussions from their kind. If anything, they may wish to thank us.
P.S. My sincerest apologies to Lady Diamanda for doubting the importance of your hunt. We all have our own Demons to conquer.
I am sorry I was not able to take you along to see the body of the fallen Lycan, but Lady Diamanda had very little time available with her military maneuvers. I did examine the body, this one met a vicious end. I removed several silver bullets from his hide and noted several stab wounds from what must have been silver or enchanted blades. I begged her not to defile the corpse by taking it to a taxidermist, but she is hell-bent on mounting the wolf's head on her wall. She claims to know special circumstances that permit this, but she would not elaborate. Perhaps you can convince her..I pray so.
What would Neualtenberg have done if the Kaiserine's head had been mounted proudly over the Guvnah's office? It would have been total war, no quarter asked nor given.
That is what I see occurring. A foe attacking not with skyships and calvalry but with inhuman strength and speed armed bearing claw and fang.
Caledon is a proud nation, Sheriff, and rightfully so..but when that pride manifests as hubris and cultural imperialism, they are always surprised by the backlash. As always, the Foundation will take the high road and steer clear of warmongering. Our doors will be open to any who seek our aid, whether with open hand or paw.
