This is usually reserved for trainees who speak rudely to their elders or disobey a direct, serious order from their trainer. The trainee is ordered to go around camp and look over every nook, cranny and pelt for ticks and fleas - an annoying job requiring a lot of crouching and squinting, not to mention some of the crankier wolves not wanting an trainee mussing their fur. This punishment lasts throughout the day, or until the trainee finds nine or more fleas and ticks. They are not allowed to leave camp until their punishment is over.
Reserved for Midclass ranks, particularly the young and cocky wolves who sneak around without permission near The Pack of Darkened Waters, start fights, or sneak a meal before returning to camp with their prey (in the plentiful seasons). The midclass wolf is moved into the trainee's den for one to four days, depending on their crime, and work alongside the trainee to take care of the retirees, bring in bedding, and feed the mothers (that latter of which never goes well). While these duties aren’t exactly shameful, it is embarrassing for the Midclass to go back so far,, who will refer to them with the Little- in front of their name until their punishment is over. They will also be escorted around the territory by a senior midclass wolf, who is likely quite irritated with being taken off of important work and unafraid to let the younger wolf know.
Usually dealt to wolves who keep eating before feeding the elders and queens, shirk their duties or break one of the Border Laws. The midclass will go without one or two meals, only skipping an entire night when they really pushed the code. They will stay in camp or be followed by another wolves to ensure that they don’t eat for the duration of their punishment. This is a pretty heavy penalty for wolf who are a breath away from starvation day in and day out.
Those who start relationships with a neighboring Pack Wolf, are discovered hanging out with loners, or eat from caged bowls during the plentiful seasons are restricted to staying in camp for nine days. The wolf will usually be ignored or glared at by their packmates, as they have broken the trust and loyalty that their Pack gives to and expects of them. They will be monitored by another wolf and forced to go without a meal if caught trying to sneak out.
In the event that a wolf does one of the actions mentioned above and causes grief instead of anger (someone dies or gets severely hurt, for example), the wolf will be avoided and chased away from their friends and family for the same amount of time (nine days). They cannot enter camp and must find a nest outside for themselves. They will be watched, of course, to make sure that they don’t cross the border, but on the whole, they are alone. This is considered even worse than being openly glared at, because at least then you’re getting some attention. The Pack wolves are very social, and to be forcibly alienated from those they love is torture.
Name Erasure and Exile
This is the worst possible punishment for a living wolf, reserved for traitors and criminals whose plans could have killed someone (or were intending to). The alpha will forcibly erase the wolf's name and declare them dead to the Clan before a patrol chases the wolf out of the territory, with the order to kill them should they try to return. The wolf will never be discussed or mentioned by name again, and if brought up by The Pack of Darkened Waters, will be referred to as “the loner” in past tense. It works just fine - since we are suited only to living in groups, the wolf might as well be dead anyway. Without their rank being honored by their family, they are refused from entry into our moon.
This is a punishment rarely seen within the pack, simply because it requires rage and brutality brought on only by the most severe crimes. Murderers and attempted murderers are executed without a second thought by being led out of camp and torn apart by their former friends after the Alpha removes their name like in exiling. The mangled body is then unceremoniously dragged away and dumped outside of the territories for foxes and buzzards to take care of.
This is a brutal punishment, retribution of the highest degree, and it means that your spirit will be chased away from our moon into bright, blinding places that no wolf dares to think about. Your afterlife will be a literal hell on earth.
