The product of a healer-induced conception (he is the son of Rain the healer) and named for his weapon preference for spears. Lifemated to Go-Backs Skot and Krim, although Skot was killed during the war with Grohmul Djun. With Krim he later raised a son, Sust, who likely was sired by Skot immediately before his death in battle. Howlkeeper and dreamberry lover. He carries with him a pouch of dreamberry seeds so that no matter where he ends up there can be a harvest. Pike was also responsible for helping reveal the message in the wrapstuff dreams during "Dreamtime."
Son of Rain the Healer; brother of Rainsong; lifemate of Skot and Krim (three-mating); possible father of the infant Cheipar; student of Longbranch
Pike is the Wolfrider's resident storyteller - getting his name from his preferred weapon. He is the most ordinary and happy-go-lucky of the Wolfriders. Pike has no grand ideals or desires for quests - he is a follower rather than a leader and he rarely questions his chief's orders. He is fully engrossed in the Now of Wolf Thought and clings through it all to his two greatest loves: dreamberries and taking the easy path. Pike's complete devotion to dreamberries is unrivaled among the Wolfriders.
After the Elf-Troll War, Pike formed a three-mating with Krim and Skot, two Go-Backs who followed the Wolfriders back to the Forbidden Grove Holt. Considering themselves lifemated, they were often seen clowning around, with much good-natured ribbing and punching. Still, the love among them was unmistakable. Although Pike's nature is usually jovial, death and danger have dealt him his share of heartache. The death of Vaya (Kahvi's daughter), Cheipar (Krim's infant son) left him speechless with grief. Yet nowhere have we seen Pike's heart more wounded than by Skot's death. Time and the Now of wolf thought have healed Pike of his heartaches. He and Krim joined Ember at Howling Rock Holt where they are raising their son, Sust.
