Welcome to Yellowknife, aka 'The Knife'. Capital city of the Northwest Territories, home of previous gold and diamond booms, it's a thriving industrial and tourism city.
It's also the home of Wolfhound Co., also known As Wolfhound Air & Tourism, an air transport and tourism adventure company. Run
by Jack O'Callahan, it's thrived since he took over, and transformed it from a simple company with several WWII era planes flying, to a
fully thriving tourism company with scenic tours, guided hikes, snowmobile tours & several other exciting adventures, just waiting for tourists,
all year round.
Yellowknife and the surrounding Mackenzie River Valley is home to a collection of curious creatures. Shifters, both natural born and infected. The largest collection is the wolf pack in Yellowknife, run by Jack O'Callahan. His presence in the city led to an influx. There is a fox skulk in Hay River, and several other native shifters in the villages up the Mackenzie Valley that rely on the planes of Wolfhound Co. for their survival.
In the cold, frozen North, you never know what each day will bring - gale force frozen winds, brilliant sunshine, or piercing cold. Join the unique shifters in the perpetual twilight of the Northwest Territories ..

The following is a brief introduction to the various shifters that live in the Great Slave Lake and Mackenzie Valley regions:
The wolf pack is situated in Yellowknife, run by Jack O’Callahan. The Craig Ellachie farm is Jack’s home, and the unofficial pack house. There are, of course, several other shifters, but with Jack’s good nature and easy charm, the shifters of Yellowknife rarely have any disagreements.
The fox skulk is in Hay River, the secondary hub for Wolfhound Air. They usually keep to themselves, and are a hard working sort. Unfortunately, a small group of rogue bears have set up camp in Hay River, and seem to be intent on causing trouble. Jack brought in Donovan McConnell, a fellow Irishman and a strong bear, to hopefully curb the issues.
The band of coyotes can be found in Norman Wells. A reasonably small group, they’re a rambunctious bunch that never seem be out of mischief. Most of the coyotes work at the small airport at Norman Wells, as well as the local hotels. Even if wolves and coyotes are natural enemies in the wild, they have a close knit relationship in the North.
The town of Deline is home to the bear sleuth. Strangely, the group is made up of a motley crew of polar, grizzly and brown bears, all living in reasonable harmony. No relation to the rogue bears causing trouble in Hay River, the bears are protective of their town and their friends. They have a tight relationship with the wolves, coyotes and foxes.
The lynx chain live in the small village of Fort Good Hope. Usually solitary creatures, the lynxes are extremely territorial, and protective of their town. Nothing happens without their knowledge. The majority of the lynxes are First Nations, and have a deep mistrust of outsiders. They have a rocky relationship with the majority of the other shifters.
The dog shifters are the curious exceptions in the frozen North. Unable to be passed on by infection, the dogs are the natural born shifters. While the majority of them live in Tulita, they have begun to spread out, and can be found in the surrounding areas. Their shifts are seamless and simple, unlike the rest of the shifters.

Wolfhound Co. started out as Wolfhound Air, a small company, flying WWII era planes to help those
small villages whose only access is by air. Jack’s younger brother had immigrated, and grown old while
Jack had stayed reasonably young, as shifters do. As his brother ailed in his old age, Jack travelled
over to Yellowknife to help, and ended up staying.
The city of Yellowknife is on the north shore of Great Slave Lake, the capital of the Northwest Territories, approximately
400 km (250 mi) south of the Arctic Circle. Just under a 2 hour plane trip south to Edmonton, Yellowknife has long been the center
of gold and diamond booms in the area. Wolfhound Co. is situated at Yellowknife Airport, along with a secondary terminal at the Hay
River airport, a 40 min plane ride south. The main office in Yellowknife is situated at this address:
