Tales Of The Freedom Fighters: Lupe and the Wolf Pack "Shadows In The Dark - Part One"
In Mobotropolis, Sally Acorn approaches Lupe Wolf in the latter's tent, having heard that Lupe and her Wolf Pack
are leaving the city. Sally asks whether or not they can be convinced to stay, but Lupe asserts that she wishes to return to her family. Noting the recent arrival of Leeta and Lyco, she explains that other Wolves must be lost as well and is eager to reunite with them. She apologetically explains that they joined up with the Knothole Freedom Fighters to fight Dr. Robotnik and nothing more.
At Reynard's behest, the group leaves to search for the other wolves while Sally and Bunnie make plans for Sonic's surprise birthday party. On the road, Diablo voices his surprise that anyone would choose to live in a polluted dump like Mobotropolis. Lupe explains that the citizens' memories of happy times, much like her memories of Lobo and their cubs, makes it their home. Lupe reminisces on how she led a portion of he pack into battle in the Great War while Lobo and others sought shelter for the pack's cubs. She then thinks back to how they met the Freedom Fighters and formed their alliance. Lupe puts her memories aside and refocuses herself on searching for home with moral support from Canus spurring her along.
The group's journey brings them to the Great River, which they don't remember crossing on their previous trek from the Great Canyon. Inflating a raft that they brought along, the group begins its crossing, only for a storm to erupt. Pondering the strange weather that has recently afflicted Mobius, they make their best effort to reach the other side of the river, where an ominous looking city awaits them.
J. F. Gabrie is told that Sonic is coming in to see him and the former asks for him to be sent in. Gabrie then wonders what Sonic thought of the crossover he had with Image. A more buff looking Sonic then walks in, much to what Gabrie feared but expected.
