There was one last hurdle to leap before Revui would take his rightful place beside Hydra as the Beta of the pack, and that was @Charon. After all the fuss and talk about his father and Speedy, the issues Hydra raised, the problem that was Yami, the tension between the rulers of Moonspear - he wasn't sure if it was the right time to seek the man out for comment. He would be able to hold back on questions or any voiced opposition easily enough; but would his father be able to read the boys nervous energy? 

He decided to get it over with, and began to patrol sections of the mountain while hunting his father down. Revui crossed paths with Amakaze's scent a few times, then Hydra's, even trailed Dirge for a bit - and finally found an inkling of where his father may roam. The boy sought out that path eagerly enough, and tried to think of what to say if he found Charon anywhere.

There was a lot on his mind and so Charon had more or less forgotten about the challenges he had set for Revui. Honestly, he'd remembered it but it had taken its place somewhere at the back of his mind with all the other "stuff that isn't immediately life-threatening". When Revui found his father's trail Charon was midway up the mountain, where the wind grew colder. A light drizzle had just stopped, leaving Charon's pelt damp, but the hike up the mountain had made him feel alive and more energetic than when he was crowded by displeased family. Honestly, at this point Arcturus seemed the most reasonable of them all to him, though he had yet to speak to some of them -- his other sons included.

Charon's ears perked forward when he saw Revui as he headed down a path close to where he had gone up, looking lost in thought. The father chuffed to grab his son's attention, not expecting any subject bar Speedy or the things Charon had said that day when the season of not one, but two females had filled his nostrils.

The scent of his father had waned across the mountain and in its place rose the aroma of Hydra, of Dirge, of the strengthened scent of his mother Amekaze, as they had been busy patrolling the many paths and protecting the claim while the patriarch had abandoned them. When Revui sought his father now, the scent of him seemed out-of-place for its strength; he thought he'd find traces of Speedy with him for some reason, but was glad when the wind gusted something pure his way. Revui tracked that scent and soon found his father's trail - then was waylayed as the sound of a chuff hit his ears. He had no desire to surprise his father but it took the boy my surprise instead, knowing that his father had sensed his arrival and was waiting for him.

Had someone already spoken of his failure? Had news gotten back to the mountain before Revui could speak of it...? He thought of all the wolves that could have spurned him in this way; those that were present when Yami was found were the obvious choices, but Revui could not make the assumption that Arcturus had spoken of the event in any detail - so he thought of Dirge, and fought back a grimace. If his sister's mate had spoiled the boy's ascension, he would be in for a world of hurt from the angry leviathan.

The silver boy approached, having assumed a prideful air despite how poorly he felt about the entire situation. He got right down to business, and stated: Arcturus and I are brothers again. Speedy has taught me of healing — and Yami, here he paused, finding that his anger at his wayward sister had transmuted in to some kind of sorrow tinged with dread, drawing the false pride from him and casting it away. Yami ran from me. She is not worthy of the mountain, however, but I am. I am your Beta. 

It was not a question; he had fulfilled the bargain, proven himself thoroughly, and saw this as the only possible result.
