Appearance and Mechanics Edit
The Wolf Talisman is a golden medallion with a large wolf head in the center of it. The wolf on the Talisman is wearing a royal crown. The Talisman also has additional decorations and gems arranged around the wolf's head.
The Wolf Talisman is capable of opening a portal to the Fabled Land. However, it will only do so once it has properly bonded to an individual. It can also amplify the dark emotions of the person who possesses it, and it gives the bearer command over the Mist Wolves.
Half a year before the events of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, the Boy's father found the Wolf Talisman in an ancient archive. He found that it had dangerous magical powers, so he hid it from the Greedy King. However, the King learned of its existence and sought it out. Eventually, he found out who had it and paid the Boy's father a visit.
The Boy managed to spirit the Talisman out of the house and tried to help his father, but the King caught them and tried to take the Talisman back from the Boy. However, the Talisman had already bonded to the Boy and chosen him for its one and only Master. It would not let the Greedy King even touch it.
Determined to open the portal to the Fabled Land, the King forced the Boy to do his dirty work for him. He threatened to kill the Boy's father if the Boy didn't cooperate and open the portal. With no other choice, the Boy did so. Once the portal was opened, Mist Wolves sprang out and the kingdom was engulfed by dark mist.
When the Red Riding Hood Sister Eldra entered the Fabled Land through the Mist Kingdom and killed the Wolf King, she obtained the Wolf Talisman. Sensing that Eldra was going to destroy it, the Talisman amplified Eldra's darkness and ambitious desires. Doing so ultimately led to Eldra trying to rule the world by bringing on an eternal night. Her plans failed, causing the collapse of the Fabled Land and the end of the Wolf Queen.
It is unknown what became of the Wolf Talisman. It may have been on Eldra when she perished in the Fabled Land, but it also could be hiding somewhere in the newly restored Mist Kingdom.
