Wrapstuffed Tribemates - Background

How five elves ended up in wrapstuff, awaiting the time when the tribe would have a new healer.


After the death of Owl in 2097, the tribe was without a healer for many centuries. Five times during that period, a tribemate was mortally sick or injured, and was put into wrapstuff by Preservers to await the time when a new healer would be born someday. These stories show how that happened for the five elves involved -- Newt, Brightwood, Fletcher, Fadestar, and Honey -- and sometimes how that impacted their families and friends and the tribe as a whole.

Follow-ups to these stories may be found in:

* Willow Discovers and Develops her Healing Powers

* Wrapstuffed Tribemates are Healed and Rejoin the Tribe
