common enough upbringing; small family pack with his father at the helm. dispersed before one year due to boredom. travelled alone until meeting marigold, on whom he fathered three children. a fever swept through the pack when the pups were eight months old, killing his wife and their daughter. full of grief and cowardice, mahler abandoned his sons and the rest of their small pack.
for what he had done, mahler condemned himself to wander alone, only the brief pleasure of several flings distracting him from his self-work of making himself nigh unto impenetrable. during his solitary travels, mahler discovered the soothing loveliness of natural music; the sound of a waterfall, of birdsong, of night-creatures, of the sea's deafening roar.
he arrives at the teekons a jaded and sardonic creature, unraveled to the limit of his intellect, aware he has few equals, his muzzle and chest bearing the old scars of where many sought to humble him. whether or not they were successful is not something mahler cares about.

ich bin gestorben dem weltgetümmel,

        if mahler spoke often, his thick accent would be hard to decipher; as it is, the aloof thing does the bare minimum when it comes to speaking, preferring few words, one or two if possible.

mahler also has a fatherly inclination toward stag sandraudiga, son of his kill-brother.

following the disappearance of agana from sagtannet, wylla offered to nurse the motherless astraeus, and mahler has come to accept the boy as his own.


*it can be assumed mahler has other children, the existence of which he prefers to remain unaware



GRIMNISMAL is formed the cold winter that mahler meets WYLLA, small fierce ruler of the coastal pack. she is mocking, challenging, savage; he likes her immediately for these qualities when very few would dare to cross mahler. their paths arc only briefly, as the group is sundered first by wylla's departure, and then by their fall after they are scattered by a bear. mahler then joins SWIFTCURRENT CREEK, where he is roundly rejected by the deposed former alpha of grimnismal. he takes a fatherly role to her daughter, but in the summer of that year, wylla disappears from the teekon with tiercel.

mahler abandons the creek then, as much because of wylla as the incompatible values he holds. he wanders, keeping himself from feminine company until he and TAKIYOK find one another friendly company. almost a year from his time at grimnismal, DIASPORA is founded, and he finds himself alongside takiyok often enough for a subtle affection to be created.

the same month, RUENNA becomes part of diaspora. he is smitten by her quiet intellect, pleased for her company. she is not made for the mountain pack, however; she departs their borders to seek her own life elsewhere. mahler, aware that ruenna was the first woman to comfort his torn heart, retreats.

in late spring, ANDRASTE enters diaspora with her mate and advanced pregancy. he thinks little of her at the time. mahler goes on to whelp takiyok's children by stigmata, and in summerfall, she admits the depth of her feelings for him. afraid to hurt her, aware that they are reciprocated but not in a complete manner, mahler must demur, and their relationship grows tense.

having also whelped andraste, mahler is father to all when stigmata is away, and the pair grow close. the father of her brood seems to abandon them, straining the relationship, and it is to the gargoyle that she turns for support. it is not until andraste challenges stigmata for the leadership and is thrown bodily from the pack that mahler is compelled to follow her out of affection, to see where she ends.

he comes to attend her injured son in KAISTLEOKI, and visits andraste later in MOONSPEAR where she convalesces after being struck by lightning. it is there that they consummate the pallor of their affection for one another, though mahler doubts its true nature as love. it is also there that mahler meets HYDRA, for whom he harbors a secret desire.

during the time of takiyok and andraste, KETZIA plays a large role as being another of stigmata's chosen mothers. she is aloff until mahler proves himself worthy of figurehead fatherhood to her own children. the pups of stigmata lose their father to a tragedy in late summer, after which mahler assumes the role of general and makes takiyok his second over ketzia.

andraste and mahler continue the whirlwind of their obsessive romance until COURTFALL is formed. upon the borders of that fledgling pack, mahler asks her to enter into an accord upon their own children, though it is rife with selfish stipulations predicated upon the fact that andraste no longer sees herself as mother to her first brood. it is his first true experience of selfishness.

through winterbite their relationship bitters and turns to ash, and in the yuletide, andraste withdraws fully from their contract, and from mahler. stricken by frustration and relief, he turns his attentions to finalizing plans for his own future.

NYX, with whom he once shared the shores of grimnismal, is not a first recognized by mahler. and yet when that revelation comes to pass in late autumn, they cleave in some desperate awakening of grief for what once was.

and in the unfairest culmination of all love and all tragedy, WYLLA herself shows upon diaspora's shattered doorstep, that same winter, in pursuit of tiercel. mahler has no idea how to regard her; he admits his longtime love, and it is not well-received, sending them both into a stilted attitude around one another as they navigate this strange new dynamic.
