But, there is a luxury here! I have never heard of two Chiefs at the same time, not counting the time(s) the tribe split up in anger!!! This was a decision to keep part of the tribe save, to be sure that after the war, wolfriders would still live on. Later Ember wanted to be sure all Winnowill's creatures were hunted down and she left with who wanted to follow her. I always thought it was never Cutters' intention to break up the tribe, but respected Embers' decision and knew she would be a good Chief. She was just as young as Cutter when he became Chief and knew how hard it was in the beginning. I do believe he will offer his daughters' tribe a safe haven for now and see what will happen, but he also knows : "Once a Chief, always a Chief!"
