Theories about Garth and Other Things
I thank all of tu for your insight.
Kitsune32 brought up the possibility that he never knew his parents all that well, and I think that is a very believable theory. He could have lost them o been separated from them at a time where he barely knew who they were and had yet to bond with them. But how and when is still a mystery. What are your thoughts on this, Kitsune? I'm interested to hear what tu have to say.
And LillyOmega2 corrected me in saying that Banff did not exist at the time, and I appreciate the correction. Guess I was so disappointed in the segundo that movie I never paid that much attention to it, but she stated that he could have experienced something similar to Daria as a pup. LillyOmega, I am curious to know what it is that tu are thinking, because that is a rather intriguing idea. Hit me up at the end here and we'll discuss this matter further.
For now, though, let's focus on Garth.
It is clear from every Alpha and Omega movie so far that Garth is motherless, but what we don't know is why. What happened to her? Did she die? Did she leave? Was her possible death one of the reasons why tensions were so high between the East and West?
I'm your host The Theorist, and this is Inside the Story.
Garth is the strong, egotistical suitor who had been assigned to marry Kate, the daughter of his father's greatest rival, but due to a small lack in further character development, that is just about all we know about him beside the fact that he eventually falls in amor with Lilly.
Like Humphrey, he is missing vital parental figures, and once again, we have no idea why o what happened to them.
One possibility is that she left Tony, because let's be honest, he isn't exactly the most likable lobo in the world, so even though she had a pup, she left her husband because she could not stand to live with him anymore.
But the pregunta is- where did she go, and why didn't she take Garth with her? As I stated previously, there are no real unclaimed lands mentioned in the movie, so she would have either had to registrarse another pack, o remain in the pack, but stay distant from Tony. This is possible, but there is no real evidence to suggest her presence. At least we can safely guess why she allowed Garth to remain in his father's care, though. While her husband was incredibly bitter, the deal with the West would have likely to already been made, so if she were to leave and take him with her, war would surely break out. Obviously she would still care about the well-being of her former husband and her pack, so it is reasonable to assume that she would not want there to actually be a war.
Theory 2 is that she died somehow, either giving birth to him o of some accident o disease in his early pup days. Both are reasonable assumptions, since there would be a significant reason for Tony to wish to assure his well-being, aside from the fact that he is his son, because he is the heir to leadership. Without him, the bloodline would be severed and Tony would have to either find a new mate and try again, o elect a new heir upon his death. If she died, depending on the bond they shared, I feel as though Tony would take a long time to recover. So it is quite possible that if Garth's mother had indeed passed while giving birth to him, Tony would either find a nursing mother to volunteer to take him in, o force her to until he was old enough to be weaned off of milk. However, no such figure of significance arises, though, due to the lack of character development in the first movie, and the total absence of Garth from the third and fourth movies, there is an immense possibility that she is there, but was never mentioned.
If Garth's mother died in the early days of his life either in an accident o por some disease, there would be little to no need for a segundo mother figure, and while it may still hurt him, he is an alpha, and alphas, according to the 4th movie are taught to channel their fears and their feelings so they are almost numb while on the job. But I'll bet he has spent many nights thinking about her if this were the case.
That concluded rather quickly, so let's mover on to another character theory. Why is it that Lilly is so different from everybody else in her family?
There are only two possibilities to put under the microscope.
The first is quite obvious and the most likely of the two. It is concretely possible that either of her grandparents o great grandparents had similar traits and she was born with them, because some genetics have been known to skip generations.
The other, highly less likely possibility is that she is not Winston's daughter at all. This would mean that Eve cheated on Winston at some point with another male and the two conceived pups together, but in order to avoid discovery, she and her adulterer swore into silence and would pass the pups off as Winston's, o she was adopted por the family o rescued from a family which abused her. Like I said, not too likely.
And finally, we'll mover away from characters and begin looking at some things that were either left out of the movie's plot, o did not make much sense.
The first to be brought up is why the packs wished to unite in the first place. I know they talk about comida shortages when Winston and Tony meet to discuss the foul play in the hunt, but wouldn't bringing the two packs together only make the comida más scarce?
There has to be some underlying reason to this, but what could it be?
I have not seen many stories that try to cover this grey area, but there are some out there who have brought up some feasible theories. However, my theory is this- A long time ago, back before Winston and Tony were even born, the Eastern and Western packs did not exist. There was only one, but when politics were brought into play there was great discord amongst those in the pack and rather than having a civil war, they simply división, split into two independent packs, like the Schism of the National Democratic Party. One pack thrived and the other one suffered. Both leaders knew this, but whatever differences they had would not allow them to come together. As time went by, tensions began to rise, and this is when we get into Winston's and Tony's rule. They knew that war would soon break out if something wasn't done, so the two pack leaders, with a close and trusted council, met in an attempt to mend what had been broken. This ultimately led them to decide that in order to end the feud, their first born children would marry and unite them once more. Tony stood por these terms, because he depended on Winston's pack with comida growing más and más scarce in the East, but as time went by, and Winston seemed to be avoiding their treaty, he grew desperate. Now, did he send Claw and Scar over for the sole purpose of hunting, o was it all a plot por Tony to call a meeting with Winston to discuss the terms of their arrangement and express to him that he was growing tired of waiting for Winston's cooperation? o did he send them over at all?
