Magi gather together and trek into the Black Forest looking for a location at which to found a covenant. They locate an ideal site with a strong magic aura at the source of the southern most river which feeds into The Source of the Danube. The dark faeries of the Forest make their displeasure with the new intruders known. Brun, in his Heartbeast form of a brown bear, uses sheer ferocity to claim territory for the covenant. It is thus that Lucretius christens the new covenant Ursa Irratus.
