"The next part, I pose a question to you all gathered here: What do you know about our Rage? What does it mean to you? What part does it have in your life?"

While Lies-in-Wait waits for someone to volunteer an answer, she pulls out a collapsed wooden easel and extra large pad of paper from an inner pocket of her trench coat. (and yes, this is more like a cartoon character pulling out something too large for the space reached into.)

She begins sketching a rough picture of a crinos garou on the corner of the pad, about the height of a human palm.

Lee waits a little bit to answer, then looks to Lies in Wait.

"I see it as a blessing and a curse.  Something we have that can protect those around us or destroy everything."

"I can understand the perspective of such an answer."

She begins to use the majority of the paper's blank space to sketch a creature of mythic size and shape. Something akin to a prehistoric rhino ancestor, with six legs that the crinos garou beside it hardly meets past one of its ankles.

"I would say, however, that our Rage is not a curse. Is a burden that we are personally responsible for? Yes."

"As I have been taught, many humans today do not feel such a strong emotion as we Garou do. It is unnerving to suddenly have a powerful connection to instinct. To feel that one needs to respond, to act, when they percieve corruption, injustice."

"We as Ahroun begin our lives as Garou with a great and instant connection to Rage. Other auspices typically have much less violent introductions. They can adjust over time."

"We are not afforded such because of what is required of us. We learn to understand Rage and adapt. This aids the hesitant to grow past their fears. This helps the strong want to lead their allies to victory. This allows the calm to know with certainty when and how it is time to act. This and more---you can feel what this means for you, and you do not need me to decide for you."

She points to the sketch on her paper.

"I do not claim perfect recollection, but this is my example of what I saw when I ran with Gaia's Incarna of Rage."

She gives them some time to think before continuing.

"It is strong, fast, and as we feel from our connection, full of righteous fury. It chants a Litany to guide its Rage, and since that meeting, I had to decide for myself what it meant to channel that much power."

"However, we are a balance, and other feelings awaken our Rage. This is why we grow to master ourselves. Fear, stress, even other instincts can stir our Rage to encourage action. This is not the goal of Rage---it is a pure unthinking instinct."

"We are the mind to percieve and choose how our instincts affect us. It is the decision of the individual should they seperate how they think of themselves as one body with dozens of thinking emotions in eternal conflict---cursed with hardship and unhappiness"

"---or, if they are of one strong mind, seeking peace but understanding that their emotions are tools of their spirit---ways to percieve the world around them and have the power to choose how to then participate within it."

"The truth can be one in the same; however, one's mindset and perception greatly alters an individual and their life choices."

Dargo waits until LiW finishes speaking.
"I think its also a powerful weapon in some cases. Our rage if triggered at an opportune time can turn the tides of battle."

Lies walks over towards Dargo. "We are the weapon, not our Rage. If you want to keep this analogy, think of it as our fuel,  or one type of ammunition."

"More often, the tide of battle is more easily won if you can force your foes to frenzy from their own Rage."

She lightly touches a finger to Dargo's forehead and he feels his Rage flare (gain one Rage, but because of Spirit deals in place, there is no frenzy unless Dargo chooses to.)

She removes her hand once she sees that Dargo realizes what just happened, or at least goes through the emotions he felt wash over him. Then she steps back towards her drawing pad.

"But yes, in rare circumstances, sometimes the enemy just needs to die as quickly as possible. Use Wisdom, and remember your mission."

She seems to wait for further questions.

He looks at her inquisitively. And angrily clenching his fists.
"What the hell did you just do to me?"

"The simplistic explanation would be to say that I allowed my Rage to touch your own. It is a gift of our auspice that has many uses---even outside of combat. It is proof of what we are capable of when we master ourselves."

"Willful resistance is a natural response to overwhelming emotion---but one that is likewise exhausting physically and mentally." Lies-in-Wait comments as she sees Dargo's clenched fists and after hearing his choice of words. "Do you have another tactic to employ if I were to continue to grant you more Rage? Or would such an exercise be more of a test of your willpower starining against your emotions?"

Lee looks a little surprised, and slightly worried.

"Well, anything that normally calms and focus' you would be a good way to relieve the rage.  Also, physical exertion, just not around humans."

Lies-in-Wait responds to Lee, "Calm and focus are exercises in connecting with your spiritual self, your Gnosis and what it connects you to---it is the opposition of Rage. It does not relieve it, it combats it."

To everyone present, "Rage is the instinct to act, to move, to right the wrongs that stir its ire. Taking steps to aid that goal release Rage from within ourselves."

"Continued willful resistance as it wells up inside you is a common cause of frenzy when a mind loses combat against one's instincts. Choose how you will react before your instincts choose for you."

She points to the sketch of Gaia's incarnation of Rage. "For Ahroun, proper tactics can have an almost limitless wellspring of Rage."

"and with higher rank, our connection can teach us mastery of our control: when to have enough Rage that we can empower others to fight on, or to bolster our Will to resist acting by instinct alone."

"However, for now, relief is as easy as forcing yourself to shift more quickly. It is a physical strain, and you will feel it's ache for a time---bit there may be a time that employing this manuever can save lives."

" This spiritual resistance against frenzy here helps expedite this process for learning---by imitation of an iron will while overexposed to Rage."

"Learn how this borderline of control feels. If you have gifts that use Rage, such would work as well. Whichever is used, the intent of the lesson is to learn more about yourself, and how your body reacts as a Garou."

"Take your time to learn from this lesson." She looks to Zack briefly before turning back to the cubs. She also touches Lee to give him Rage just past his cap to learn from the lesson.

A breif nod passed when she looked to him for the permission to increase Lee's Rage.

"If you have any more questions now would really be the time for them you two," Zack says.

Those astue enough will notice a hilt sticking out from the left side of his back, concealed very well by the normal coat he wears. He has also gained a fluid way of walking, such as that he is almost stalking at most times.

Lies-in-Wait walks away from the cubs to stand by Zack. She waits with the Beta Den parent, and her gaze is patient and attentive to how the cubs choose to proceed.

"Perhaps that will be enough for the moment then," Zack says after a brief pause.

"As you say." Lies-in-Wait nods as if submitting to an unspoken request.

With meeting of her eyes, first to Dargo then to Lee, each of them feel some of their Rage drain away. It takes a few seconds, but they end up feeling calmer than how they had started. (Strength of the dominator gift, lose one Rage a round for three rounds.)

During the drain of Rage, Lies-in-Wait snap shifts to Crinos and over time activates a few gifts to expend her own Rage. Aside from the change of forms, Razor claws was the only noticeable difference, at least it was until she shifts back to her homid form where the gift's effects are negated.

After, she looks toward Zack, "Will there be anything else?"

Zack shakes his head, "Not at the moment, Lies-in-Wait-Rhya, thank you for coming so far to help with the lessons.  Before you go, however, I would speak with you."

Turning back to the cubs, Zack addresses them, "Good questions today, next up: Run the island for an hour, twenty minutes per form.  I don't care how far you go, but run for an hour."

Lies-in-Wait seems to understand, then a look of curiosity crosses her face. "Which two forms are they excluding to equal an hour of twenty minute intervals?"

Zack smiles, "That's part of the lesson; it's their choice."

[AKA, Jack always seems to forget about the hybrid forms.  Meant to be wolf, crinos and homid.]

"Understood." As Zack smiles, Lies-in-Wait turns her head away from him and walks to her sketch pad. She folds it to slip into her trench coat, and against logic, it disappears into an inner pocket the same way it had appeared.

Turning back towards Zack, "I will be outside to speak once you are ready."

Looking one last time towards Lee and Dargo before she leaves. "If requested, I would attempt to make time for another visit. Learn what you can."

Then she exits without waiting.
