Pronunciation: (rhymes with STRONG ranch)
Longbranch was the tribe’s longtime storyteller, giving dreamberries to his listeners to enhance their memories, though he did not need them himself. It was from Longbranch that Pike received his howlkeeper (in essence, the tribe’s oral tradition “memory”) training. Longbranch was originally called Longreach, but whatever prompted his name-change is unknown. His hair and beard were black, and he wore a rust-colored hood. Long-lived for a Wolfrider, his days in the tribe stretched through five chiefs–from Freefoot to Bearclaw–before he was killed by Madcoil.
