Today we’re looking at the hunter end of Pack of Dawn and Destiny with a study of Radcliff and Scarlett Fletchings!
Scarlett and Radcliff Fletching are a sister/brother duo from the Fletching Hunter family who (during the trilogy) live in the apartment of the Timber Ridge Welcome Center. They specialize in tracking magic, but they are certified hunters and very skilled in working together.
Radcliff and Scarlett Fletching begin their story as uneasy enemies in that they don’t dislike Pip and the wolves like their uncle does, and they end their arc by becoming Sabre/Ward hunters and belonging to the Northern Lakes Pack. Emotionally speaking, they have one of the biggest arcs in the trilogy, and yet their transition is the smoothest because of who they are.
The pair’s inner strength is easy to overlook because they’re so accepting of everything they encounter. They agree to work as baristas and wear their hunter gear at Greyson’s request. They agree to help the Pack track Aspen, and later use their magic to track Greyson. They naturally look to Pip as a leader, and want to learn everything they can from her about living and working together with wolves, all while respecting the werewolves that other hunters scoffed at.
Radcliff and Scarlett are a study in respect, and making an effort to really get to know others and understand them–that’s why their arc is so fun and not traumatic. That’s also why they can support Teresa–because their initial reaction is always to observe and be gentle.
That’s all for today–it’s a shorter post, but I wanted the Fletchings to have their own moment! Thanks for reading, Champions, and have a wonderful day!
Fun fact: All hunter families are named after a weapon/a part of a weapon! Fletchings are the feathers on the end of an arrow, Sabre is a type of sword, Quillon is the cross guard of a sword, and Ward refers to magic wards.
