Greymane is hammering in another thick board in the goat shed, nails sticking from the corner of his mouth so he can easily grab the next one without stopping. Almost done, he hears a commotion outside between the house and the shed. He hears Xylo. He drops his hammer and drops the nails in a nearby wooden box as he rushes out into the rain again. The change starts to come over him as he sees the outline of that demon standing there, mocking his newest charge. This new one for him to protect, to guide. He feels the bloodlust rise within him, more violent than the house incident. His frame grows. His claws lengthen, his face twists and contorts. He grows a muzzle loaded with sharp wolf's teeth. He rams himself between Elle and Xylo, growling menacingly, his voice cracking low and harsh.
" I thought I told you to leave, demon, and yet here you are again, threatening MY pack. Again. I will not ask you to leave any more. I will make you leave! I'm an alpha, and as an alpha, I do what's best for the pack. And that would be you, dead or gone, even if it cost my life." Greymane continues growing larger, his menacing grey fur covering his body as his eyes glow with rage. He advances on Xylo, raising his enormous paws to cleave out a chunk of Xylo's face, when there was a blood curdling scream from inside the house.
His ears swiveling, his expression changes, and he rushes into the house, to Lilith's room.
