But, in the end, the war is lost. It is apparent to the werewolves that they have been manipulated, used for a false cause. They try to abandon their new masters, but to no avail. It is too late, they are trapped in the lands of Morytania, imprisoned by the River Salve. The few who remained in the west when the holy barrier was erected are killed by humans, their weaknesses exploited. And those in the east, their masters find new uses for them. They see them as dogs, and dogs can be domesticated.
The strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
