Image: A huge, hulking red dire wolf with piercing green eyes. In homid he is a looming Irish-American with a shock of red hair, a thick red beard and equally sharp green eyes, in h is late 40s.
The Fianna of New York are ruled by Riordan Cliffgrazer, a chieftain of enormous appetites and great passions. He is a bounteously mirthful Garou who writes the most mournful songs. He is a gifted musician and a very violent combatant. He will turn on any who disobeys him, or who menaces the tribe or those the tribe protects. He shows little mercy to his foes until he is sure the threat they pose is nullified, whereupon he treats them with the kindness and forgiveness usually reserved for a wayward child who has come home. He has even forgiven his tribesmen who served as pawns for the Wyrm, but only after they repented and begged forgiveness.
His policies have been to take a hard line with the Uktena when they try to grasp more control of the Caern of the White Water, and to forgive and forget their grasping as soon as they back off. This decisive nature characterizes all his doings.
His connections with Kinfolk in various New York police departments have painted a picture that disturbs him. Besides standard corruption and graft, he has seen a new stain of corruption emerge from several city governments at once. There seems to be a greater willingness to overlook the most virulent of child abuse crimes, and to release well-connected people accused of violent molestations. The government officials in question all seem to have connection to specific political pundits. He does not know about the Seventh Generation, but has unwittingly come to be hot on its trail.
