Origins of the Lycans
Every lycan knows their species were born because Zeus cursed Lyka. It’s his offspring who became these wolf-like creatures.
Hera caught the eye of Lyka. He desired to have Hera in his bed, so he befriended Zeus under false pretenses in order to get close enough to seduce Hera.
When Zeus discovered Lyka’s true intentions he cursed Lyka. Since he wanted to come to Zeus as a wolf in disguise, he will forever wear his wolf on the outside. becoming more beast than man Lyka acted purely on instincts.
When he saw Anthropia the Goddess of humanity she quickly became an obsession for him. Her love, light, and goodness made her a beacon that called to the darkness in his heart. He ached for what was lost.
Darkness overcame the light, swallowed it whole. He took her prisoner and forced her to birth his children. seventy children she bore for him, fifty sons and twenty daughters known as lycans. They shifted from beast to human.
The union of beast and humanity never redeemed Lyka. He was lost to the darkness of his beast. It did give way to his children having the best of both worlds.
Anthropia eventually escaped Lyka’s bonds and killed the beast responsible for years of her torment. He would him never force her again.
She loved her children despite their father’s evil. She couldn’t bring herself to harm her own offspring. She taught them to live by a code and honor it. Maintain their balance of beast and man and if one side must be dominant choose humanity. This was how lycans can live among mankind undetected.
All except another breed of lycan.
How the Three Breeds of Lycans Came to be...
Nyctimus the first born of Lyka and Anthropia was born in the night and favored most by Lyka. Nyctimus being the first spent a lot of time with his father. It was easy for him since born in darkness instead of light.
Nyctimus beast side was more dominant which in return made him more aggressive and powerful than his other siblings. He was the first of the night breeds. He shifted between beast and human but acted mostly on instincts like his father. He was beautiful on the outside but inside everything dark and scary of the night.
He was the embodiment of nightmares. He was the reason people feared the dark. He was the monster in the dark they feared.
By the time Anthropia was free from his father Nyctimus was already set in his dark ways and too loyal to his father’s way of life to suppress his beast. He continued to live with his wolf nature close to the surface.
Nyctimus became Alpha of his father’s empire after his death. He took care of his mother and younger siblings until they form packs of their own expanding their territory.
He wanted to become a powerful species in the lore. To increase the lycans numbers Nyctimus arranged for his siblings to marry other strong and immortal beings like, demigods. The children born of those unions were arranged to marry each other.
He did this over centuries creating a strong and plentiful lycan race while keeping the bloodline as close to pure as possible.
When Nycalla, Nyctimus’s sister who like him was born in the night, became of age she was as beautiful as the night sky. the embodiment of everything beautiful about the night. The stars and moon, peace and calm. The quiet and relaxation.
Nyctimus loved her and wanted to take her has his wife. Other suitors courted her but Nyctimus would have no competition for Nycalla’s heart. He would kill anyone who tried to get in his way.
during their loving union she conceived a son named Kieran. The joining of the only two lycan children of the night gave birth to a third breed of lycan shifters. He was the start of the dark breeds. Fierce merciless warriors ruled by their beast. Rike West’s bloodline.
When the children of the night seed blooms...
Chapter One: Let’s Make A Deal
Rike paced the meeting room of his mansion awaiting the arrival of a female claiming to be the answer to all his problems. A lycan female.
The meeting room for a lycan Alpha was equivalent to a throne room for a king. Rike’s spacious Châteauesque estate was dressed in French inspired gothic decor, groin vault ceilings, and an elegant combination of wood and marble flooring. His wide-open meeting room was just as elegant. Even his chair had a gothic plush high-back design and looked as if it was made for … well, an Alpha.
When the Alpha of a lycan pack was in his meeting room, it signaled he was available to answer questions or settle other matters before him from the pack members. having a territory large enough to cover most of the Midwest and some parts of the southwest United States, Rike practically lived in his meeting room when not flying to different areas of the empire.
Except today was different, Rike's more important matter was to obtain his deceased father’s empire. And having to put off pack matters to meet with some unknown lycan claiming to be the answer to his problems had him on edge. Caring for his pack was his number one priority and putting off their needs and concerns never sat right with him. He may be their Alpha but it’s he who served them. For that reason, her life depends on just how satisfied I am with her news.
If it wasn't for the Lycan council denying his claim to his father’s, Viktor, throne, he wouldn’t have to resort to plan B of married a purebred lycan female to produce an heir. Except plan B has not worked out so well either. Down to plan G at this point.
His name struck terror in the hearts of his enemies, but it didn't land him a bride. A Queen! Time was running out. This mess had the fearless Rike West opened to deals and made him look weak and exposed. She’s here to exploit my desperation for a purebred female.
Lycans have been around for millennia. Over the years, some kept to the olden ways of their ancestors, marrying only other lycans. Most others married whomever they wished, lycan or not. The drawback of the latter, millions of halflings and a shortage of purebred lycans. Rike was a traditionalist.
No matter how annoyed at being exploited, Rike couldn’t bring himself to ignore an opportunity to gain more power. She claimed to be a purebred female, so their offspring would be born more powerful than the rest of lycankind. I am a purebred, my parents were purebreds, my ancestors were purebreds, and I will have nothing less for my offspring.
All his life Rike has been raised to seek more and more power.
His father’s words, “Son without power you are nothing. Just another poor wolf being dragged through life by the will of another. And being immortal, life has the potential of forever. that’s a special kind of hell.”
His father’s way of saying never become another’s bitch.
His mother’s words, “My precious darkling, do you know why I named you Rike? You are destined to be a mighty Alpha of your own empire. You are a god among men and they all should fear you. Fear is respect and respect is power.”
Viktor and Lorayle West were a force to be reckoned with and they would never raise their only son to be anything less. Power is everything!
For this very reason Rike agreed to meet with Claire and discuss her offer to help him gain more power. That and all the purebred families have declined to give a willing bride to him. This news was a surprise to him.
Rike was the most ruthless and powerful lycan in the world as being the only purebred dark lycan left... and they denied him. Him! He would make a powerful ally. And still here he waited for some promised deal from an unknown lycan.
So, what he has a short temper, amoral, and a tab bit trigger happy. Okay, okay … a lot bit trigger happy.
All they would have to do was not piss him off and boom, it’s smooth sailing… for the most part.
Aloysius, Rike’s beta, a tall solid built male lycan with short cropped blonde hair and piercing blue eyes entered the room with a redhead, pale skin, busty, lycan green eyed goddess trailing behind him. Claire was more beautiful than Rike expected and he would be lying if he denied she caused his cock to swell.
Aloysius tilts his head with respect to Rike before he presented the lycan female in his Scottish accent, “Claire ó Duinn, MiLord.”
Lord was the customary greeting to a lycan Alpha with a pack large enough to be considered an empire. Once an Alpha has reached Alpha Lordship status they expect to be acknowledged as Lord as it was a badge of honor.
Claire bowed low allowing Rike to get a better view of her full cleavage. She wore a shimmering blush gown with an off-the-shoulders sweetheart neckline that framed her pushed up breasts. Every bit of a Lycan Queen.
When she noticed Rike's eyes on her breast she smirked at him. something in her eyes told Rike she was power hungry, and he was her ticket to having it. That familiar hunger for more power burns in her just as it does for him. Much respect female.
He didn’t need a union of love, so a mate that has the same ambition as him, was like hitting the lottery. Her beauty makes it easy to knock her up with however many pups she can handle.
She may have had his respect, but his wolf instincts were suspicious of her motives. She is too good to be true.
Dark breeds were considered the psychopaths of the lycan species. For that very reason a lot of the purebreds of dark breeds have been hunted down and killed. What are the chances a purebred nubile lycan was eager to wed and bed the most “evil” male of their species? Let’s find out.
Rike rose to his full seven-foot height, violet eyes met hers. He growled, “What the fuck do you want from me, female?”
Claire placed her hand on her chest in shock. She raised her other hand, “Excuse you my Lord! I do not think that is the proper way to address your future Queen!”
Rike sneered, “What makes you think you have an ounce of hope?”
Claire laughed as she looked around. “I see no long line of purebred females clambering for your hand in marriage.”
Rike raised a brow. Touché female.
He folded his arms studying her bold and cocky behavior. “speaking of purebred. I have not heard of the ó Duinn family, so what proof do you have of your lineage?”
She opened a small handbag the same color as her dress and produced some folded papers. “My family is new to the States, but we are well known in Ireland,'' She handed the papers over to Rike. He studied them for a long moment before handing them to his beta to inspect.
Rike returned to his seat settled in before looking her straight in the face, “No. I deny your proposal. Leave at once!”
Claire growled at being dismissed, “No!”
Rike was taken aback by her defiance. His eyes turned an electric violet, evidence of his anger rising.
She stiffened giving off a small scent of fear before she squared her shoulders. She met he gaze with a seductive smile, “My Lord do you find me plain?”
He answered honestly “No. You are very beautiful and... bold. Two things I admit I would desire in a mate.”
Claire retorted, “Then why do you turn your fertile mate away?”
Rike pondered her words. She offered something he needed but this was too easy. Eyes locked on him, she reached behind herself to unzip her gown. Her smile turned naughty as it falls to the ground, allowing Rike to look over every curve of her amazing body. My Gods, female.
His cock swelled, forcing Rike to adjust himself.
Aloysius cleared his throat, “If yer pardon me, MiLord ah think I’ll get lost.”
Rike turned his attention to Aloysius, “What? You don’t think she will make a good Queen Al?”
Aloysius stopped in his tracks and turned around to admire Claire from behind. He nodded with a smirk “She’ll make a fine Queen MiLord.”
The scent of her arousal reached Rike’s nose. He took a moment to sniff the air enjoyed her feminine musk. Aloysius must have scented her as well because he adjusted himself. Rike’s intense eyes fell on hers as she started to prowl closer to him.
“My Lord have me in your bed tonight so that you can see how great of a wife I can be for you,” Claire purred.
Rike was definitely intrigued and smirked, “You court dark desires in me. but I must warn you to reconsider as I am not a gentle lover.”
Claire smiled “Do I look like a girl that desires gentle? How sure are you that you can handle me Mr. West?”
Rike chuckled as he rose to undo his belt. “In that case you will service my beta as well” She looked back at Aloysius, who has removed his shirt already, intense blue eyes burned into her as he unzipped his jeans.
The two men closed in on her their hands caressing her sensitive nipples and moist sweet spot. Rike tasted her juices from his fingers, “Ms. ó Duinn?”
She pulled Rike in for a deep kiss, swirling her tongue over his.
“Call me Mrs. West.”
Chapter Two: Betrayal
“Why is she not pregnant?”
Rike paced his private office furious that he was still without his father’s empire and worse, he was no closer today than six months ago. I have my mate, why don’t I have my heir?
His fist slammed on the desk. “I take her every night! Sometimes multiple times a night, and yet she remains without my heir in her belly!”
Aloysius attempted to cool Rike’s rage, “Toretto will have answers for you, miLord. Whatever’s kept the Queen from conceived it’ll be eliminated, you have me word.”
Rike frustrated, “We have been wed for six months and it only takes five months to birth a lycan! My son should be born now!” a happy healthy baby boy suckling at his mother’s teat.
“These wolves better have answers for me or by the Gods I will strike them down for being incompetent fuckwits!” Rike growled. His tone promised bloodshed.
Aloysius with the patience of a saint, allowed Rike to vent. “Yes, MiLord.” He knows Rike anger isn't directed towards him personally. Al attempted to calm Rike again, “Donnae worry MiLord you’ll have yer answered...” He shrugged “or I’ll gut them myself and force their entrails down their own throats.”
Aloysius was a night breed lycan with a nature just dark and dangerous as his Alpha. Rike’s centuries long friendship with Aloysius was arguably the longest relationship he has ever had. I am only a little over six hundred years old. I have my whole life ahead of me.
The two males became friends after a rivalry for the same female. Victoria Moore was a beauty to behold. The round bottom, thick thighs, plump breasts ebony goddess had a sway in her hips to make any man cum in his pants. Rike wanted between her legs but he wasn't the only wolf in town looking to make a deposit in the bank of Victoria.
Soon the clash turned into a competition between two Alpha males more wrapped up in beating each other than having the woman herself. The last straw was during a fencing duel between Rike and Aloysius where they proceeded to shit talk each other to the point of throwing their swords on the ground and so they could tear into each other with their bare hands.
Not the least bit impressed with their childish antics, Victoria suggested they go fuck each other as she kicked them both in the balls. Ouch.
With ice packs on their bollocks, they had a common enemy. It was the start of a lasting friendship. Together the two lycan males built the Dark Moon Empire into the force it was today. There was nobody else in all the realms Rike whether have watching his six than Al. His brother from another mother
Amused by Aloysius ferocity, Rike’s temper cools as he sat back in his chair. He let out a deep breath before confiding in him.
“I doubt she bleeds even though she denies me some nights.” He leaned in closer to Al who frowned at his words. Rike continued, “Other females I can scent it but her -” Rike interrupted by Toretto, his Gamma, stormed into his office.
“My Lord… you are not going to like this.” he puffed catching his breath.
Like most Alphas, Rike had a beta who played the part of his right-hand man, but only Alpha Lords also had Gammas, third in command, and Deltas, fourth in command, to ensure the entire empire was protected and well cared for.
Aloysius and Rike both stand at attention. “What happened Toretto?” Aloysius asked.
“The Queen is a mutant!” Toretto said.
Another drawback to halflings: mutations. Breeding with other humanoid immortals have given way to their offspring coming out … wrong.
Rike stepped from behind the desk, “Impossible!”
Toretto shook his head “No my Lord, it’s true! We caught Dominic sneaking out of the Queen’s room in the wee hours of the night.”
Rike fist balled as his eyes glowed electric violet.
Toretto continued “We chained him in the dungeon and after some torturing, he finally started talking!”
Toretto explained the Queen lays eggs, probably from a bird shifter in her family tree, and Dominic helped her steal Rike’s seed to fertilize her eggs. Dominic was the pack enforcer charged with protecting the Queen Alpha.
Rike disgusted, “How many eggs has she succeeded in fertilizing?”
Toretto replied, “Out of the six eggs she has in her nest, only one is yours my Lord.”
Rike frowned “and the other five?”
Toretto cleared his throat hesitant to answer but Al pinned him with a dark and dangerous glare. “Dominic’s. They are Dominic’s my Lord.” Rike eyes widen as Toretto continued “They were planning a surprise birth to happen while you were away visiting the Southern territories and business partners on your extended trip” This bitch dares to deceive me!
Rike unholstered his twin custom chrome desert eagle forty-four mags that he sported with every custom-tailored suit. They all die today.
Al stepped forward with his usual cool calm and collected presence “MiLord before we kill the Qu--” he clears his throat “Claire, donnae forget we’ve dinner planned for her purebred female friend. A lass which’s due to arrive en jus’ a few short days.”
Rike scoffed as he cocked his guns, “the bitch lies! Call off dinner.”
Following where Al was going, Toretto spoke up. “We could hire an enchantress white lyter to test the friend.”
Lyters are a type of fae but born with powers that resembles light. Those fueled by white light were called white lyters and are generally good, helping others. Those fueled by black light were dark lyters and amoral.
This white lyter specialized in enchantments, objects designed to fulfill the desires of one’s heart.
Rike turned his face up offended by the suggestion. “Why would I lower myself to do business with a fucking witch?” Rike growled.
Toretto shrugged “Consider it a guarantee of sorts”
Al agreed “This could be an easy opportunity to snag a full-blooded lass to fatten up with yer seed, fast trackin’ you to yer father’s empire.”
Rike couldn’t deny the sound argument Toretto and Aloysius presented. Damn!
He sighed, “We will tell Claire that Dominic is away on pack business. Since it’s Toretto’s bright idea, I expect you to set this meeting with the witch up today!”
Toretto nodded “I will prepare the jet for New Orleans.”

Q: Have you ever been in love?
A: I am in love with power and that’s everything I will ever need.
