                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Pup Debut
                                                  Between March and June when the pups are being born into the pack, Azure Valley wolves are in a heightened sense of joy and excitement with the coming of new members. Parents hold great pride in their new little ones and the higher ranking members welcome fresh young little ones that lift the spirits of the pack. In approximately a month, when the newborns are old enough to walk and move independently, the Alphaess holds a ceremony for the young pups that were just born. With parents and pack members watching, it is their debut before the Alpha pair, introducing themselves and being welcomed by the highest ranking members of the pack.

                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Iota Evaluation
                                                  The Iota Evaluation is an event lead by the Beta Male. Participation generally only involves Iota yearlings, however, it is not unusual for Tau to be requested if the Alpha wishes for more insight into an outsider. The Beta asks each division of Zeta, Delta and Sigma, to volunteer 2 members in helping him evaluate the young wolves, especially so if there is a boom in pup births. It is a three day period of evaluation, at it's ending, the Beta will often speak to each Iota, to discuss their potential in future ranks. They will also take not of aspirations and wishes so that they may better assess where a yearling will go when they reach Epsilon rank.

                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Honor Ceremony
                                                  Every year when the Iota are turning two and heading into their ranks as Epsilon, the Honor Ceremony is held to commemorate all those who have proven themselves fit to be promoted in rank. The Alpha are head of this ceremony as it is their decision to promote wolves within the pack to a higher rank. They spend much of the year taking notice of not only skills, but also listening to what others have to say about individuals. The ceremony begins with the celebration of Iota into the various Epsilon ranks, followed by other wolves promoted in rank and finally, if there are any, welcoming Tau officially into the pack. There is often a great hunt the morning of and the pack feasts and socialize with each other, congratulating wolves and just celebrating the achievements.

                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Advancements
                                                  Within the three divisions, Zeta, Delta and Sigma, there is something like a sub-hierarchy among the wolves at time. Though the Beta is in charge of all three divisions and keeping things clear and organized, some wolves stand out more than others. Advancements are training events or sessions that occur at unscheduled times by the Beta. It is a way of sharpening skills and determining dominance within the divisions. Advancements may be requested by wolves of the division, but it up to the Beta to decide a time and place. Cohesion and bonding are key elements to Advancement events.

                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Light of the Evening Sky
                                                  Every month, the Azure Valley Pack celebrates their way of life and gives thanks to the Moon Goddess who shines kindly down upon them. The Alphaess and Upsilon organize this grand event every month, involving a great hunt during the day so that the pack may feast on the prey in the evening, singing songs to the moon and just paying their respects to the Goddess they worship.

                                                  ◦ ◦ ◦ Tribunals
                                                  Tribunals are essentially pack meetings that involve a wolf or wolves who have committed a wrong doing against the pack. Actions such as betraying the pack, killing a pack member or being the cause of death of a pack member, breeding without permission and deserting, all call for a Tribunal to settle the matter and deal out punishment. The Alpha will call the pack together in its entirety, the wolf or wolves must stand at the center before the Alpha and he will lay out the crime the wolf has committed towards the pack. He will take suggestions of punishment from the pack and in closing, will decide which course of punishment he will deal out.
