Factions, Families, Clans, and Empires
Summanus is a black wolf with a bluish-grey under belly, and black stripes on both of his front legs. He also has glowing yellow spikes on the sides of his face that help conduct electricity. He also has two tails and at the ends they glow yellow, which also helps him with electricity. Summanus has a brown band, with a yellow glowing lightning pendant, around his neck that his parents had given him. His fur around his neck is usually creates static, and sparks of electricity almost always darts off of his fur.
Summanus is typically quiet and keeps to himself. Though if you actually got him to talk to you it would usually be about himself. Summanus is a protector and if you were to befriend him (Which is a challenge) then loyalty and protection are his best traits. Summanus is also a wanderer and when no one is around him he usually takes quick walks around the forest.
Recently he has been bearing a large amount of guilt. It's been eating away at him. First realizing one of the Kitas wasn't place in a detention camp, made him regret helping Shimmer Doom. He has been wanting to say something to her, but he feared that would only cause more problems. He doesn't want her to suffer the information that her family is being held prisoner at this moment. Then the guilt continued to pile up as he attacked BattleDemon and realized his error. Now all he could do is hold the pain in.
Summanus has a long serrated sword on his side that can channel lightning and anyone who touches it will get electrocuted.
Summanus' Blade: Summanus' Pendant:
When Summanus was a pup both of his parents died. First his father who had died in the war and next his mother which died from heartbreak. They left Summanus with no siblings or other family members. So Summanus was considered a stray and he left his pack's orphanage because nobody wanted him.
For much of his life, Summanus had no direction. Aimlessly wandering and being hired for odd jobs during this war. He was mainly a mercenary, a wolf for hire. No job was denied by the stray Borak and no loyalties were made. He found ties to others a rather serious disadvantage. His latest job was to help the rather affluent Borak, Shimmer Doom. Doom and her Boraks invaded the Sakura Ruins and have occupied the Kitas.
Summanus helped in this war effort and Shimmer Doom's conquest was assured. After the disposal of a few Kamarians, Doom relieved Summanus of his duty. Gave him his pay and sent him off. He was to never speak of this at all, and if he did, she would find him and kill him. Leaving, he would continue to wander until an interesting sight caught his attention. A group of wolves from different packs, fighting together against an ambush.
Going against his better judgement, Summanus intervened and helped fight off the ambush. Who would have known this would lead to bigger problems. Later remaining with those wolves at the time, was to be captured and place in a prison. Now he only wishes to escape and once he does, he is leaving.
The two Kamarian wolves were surprised when an F2 tornado struck in front of them. Before they could move or even make any whimpering noises they were thrown into the air and tossed two or three miles from the current spot they had been at or so it appeared. They managed though to land safely in a huge pile of hay next to an empty barn and come out bruised, but still alive. Talk about luck!
Anyway, the leader of the two Kamarians stood up and looked at his remaining partner sprawled out in the bundle of hay. "Let's not every go chasing after wolves again. Let's just pull out of this war for a bit and let both sides tear each other apart. If we go back to Kaveh now we're dead, and frankly that prospect is not good sounding for us."
The second wolf nodded vigorously as he covered his ears with his paws and curled into a ball, "I don't know what happened to Chubby Hugo, but that Nova guy probably killed him. I don't want to end up on the same platter as Chubby."
"Eh, it's probably for the best that he's dead. Our clan has gotten creepy in some regards. Kaveh is a powerful leader, but really doesn't give a care about the infighting and things the other wolves do." the leader of the two stated as he looked down on his partner.
"I suppose then we'll be leaving Mydnyte alone since he's near that Nova guy?"
"Yes, I don't want anything else to do with them." the first wolf stated.
The second stood up and then looked around. "Where are we? I don't see anyone else around-"
Suddenly a bolt of lightening rained down from the sky. "Welcome to the Sakura Ruins, the sanctuary of wolves, light and hope. I Summanus, a traveling wolf of the Borak clan, will be taking you prisoner now."
The two Kamarians sighed and whispered in unison, "Let's promise never to go near the weather creating freaks of this wolf world of ours again."
Summanus circled around them and slowly began to goad them away from where they were standing by emitting sparks of electricity from his fur.
The two wolves that had attacked Mydnyte and the others were led on through a beautiful garden floating in the clouds. Behind them, Summanus goaded them on with more sparks of electricity.
"What do you think we should do Orin?" the subordinate of the small Kamarian contingent asked his leader as he carefully tread over a clump of daffodils.
"I wouldn't know Borro, but we've obviously been captured so our fate's probably not too good." the stronger Kamarian whispered back to him. Suddenly they stepped into a clearing and Summanus pushed his way to the front of them saying, "Move aside for your own good." he stepped forward and quickly bowed using his forelegs before an empty white throne and growled at the two wolves to do the same.
From behind the throne a wolf with auburn fur and a lightning bolt pend walked carrying a Kita pup by the rough of their collar. She set the pup in front of her and said, "I see you have brought new prisoners Summanus, my excellent mercenary, Kamarians, how odd. Do you know how they got up here?"
Summanus rose on his feet and answered, "I saw them drop from the sky. They probably were scouting out the Mountains of Era. What should we do with them Lady Shimmer Doom?"
Shimmer's Doom's eyes glowed yellow and suddenly Orin and Borro knew who they had been captured by. They panicked and hid behind Summanus. Shimmer Doom showed her teeth and said, "Drop them from the cliff like the rest of the people we sometimes find wandering around up here. We can't have anyone knowing that the Borak pack has captured the Sakura Ruins after all. We have such a lovely hostage in the form of this Kita pup after all, the next alpha of this nasty place. I'm sure his parents would miss him just like how I miss my father. He was killed you know by one of the other traitorous packs. No doubt it'd probably be a pack like this that just "pretends" to be peaceful. I'm just glad that this place wasn't hard to capture."
Summanus nodded and played his role well. He drew a long serrated blade and pointed it at Orin's head, "March," he commanded before Orin and Borro before they turned around sharply and were led towards the edge of a steep cliff. Orin and Borro looked down and gulped before Summanus suddenly shoved them off the edge.
(I'm going to be starting up a little trouble with Shimmer Doom. If it's okay it'll involve the Kita pack maybe and Shimmer Doom taking their territory for the purposes of war so that she can use it to draw out whoever may have killed her father.)
"I don't know who those were, but they were rather interesting." Shimmer Doom told Summanus as she trotted towards him and showed him her teeth. "I wonder if Kaveh sent them? They were Kamarians I think after all."
She looked back at the Kita pup sitting at her throne and said, "We should go visit him and take the brat along with us. With him in hand we've acquired such a nice place. I just hope we can use this as a base of operations, well to get back for what all the wolves who've killed my father."
Summanus gazed at her and thought, "She's had me do some things that are quite horrible. I should tell her what I think."
He voiced to her as he put sheathed his blade. "Ma'am I think that is a good idea, but I can't come with you. My contract has expired. I've been only assigned to help you take this place so you can use it to help take revenge for your father by taking their pups, I'm just going to go now since I'm not longer needed."
"That's fine..." she said as her eyes glowed yellow and she growled at him, "Just use one of the Kita to fly you off of this floating rock and don't tell anyone of my plans. I'll let you go easily because I'm an easy going person, but if you do tell someone of my plans you'll find me coming for you."
Summanus nodded and found a Kita waiting nearby the throne now, having walked over during the events that occurred. It stood next to the pup and looked down on it with pity in its eyes. It knew the situation it was in, but as Summanus walked over to this wolf there seemed to be something not so totally bad about him.
"I need a ride, get me off this rock with my money and then go home." he ordered the Kita. It nodded its head and spread its wings.
Shimmer Doom turned around to look at Summanus and said, "I almost forgot your payment!" she announced tossing a small sack towards him, "For helping kill a few people here as they've come and gone. I've paid you in some nice juicy bones."
Summanus caught the sack in his teeth and the Kita activated powerful light energy. "We're going to move through light speed methods. Be prepared." Its eyes glowed and Summanus found himself suddenly on a grassy plain in Nigerius. Within a moment the Kita clan member disappeared leaving him with his money.
(I'm not sure if I can do this sort of thing or not, but the powers in this game have seemed somewhat open ended. I'm not a frequent poster I know, but I'll try to get in some more after summer time hits.)
Durandel noticed the situation becoming much worse. Not only are his lava defenses being counteracted, but they were attacked from afar. The lightning was coming quick barely leaving any room for Durandel to dodge. Mainly thanks to the time manipulating, Dumasani in front of him. He was clever to try and slow time down so the Boracks could easily hit Durandel. Durandel's only saving grace was making the lava splash; blocking their view. Though that grace was about to be finished thanks to the Arlyne's water abilities. Durandel was running out of options. Suddenly he was knocked down to the ground again by Duma, as he broke his concentration on the lava. He knew the Boracks now had a clean shot and it will only take an instance for lightning to strike.
Then lightning struck the trees next to the Boracks as they collapsed in front of them obstructing their view. A battle howl was heard as black wolf with a bluish-grey underbelly shot lightning a two Delta's in front of him. The wolf then jumped into the fray as he shot lightning from his mouth and electrocuted the Arlyne's cooling down the lava. The survivors backed away as they were forced to turn their attention towards their new foe. "I have no idea what is happening...but...I don't appreciate cowards who rely on ambushes to finish the job." Spoke Summanus as he noticed a puddle of water near the survivors. "You've just signed your death warrant." Summanus spoke as he blasted another bolt as it hit the water. The electricity surged about the Arlynes as they were electrocuted by their own power. The mysterious Borack then stood between the lava and the fallen trees. "Come on, I'm waiting." He spoke as he unsheathed a sword that was hanging from his side. Firmly grasping it in his mouth the trees exploded from electrical blasts as the Borack Deltas attacked the wolf. He dodged their bolts as he charged at them. The Deltas charged in retaliation as the wolf performed some quick sword play as he slashed them, tearing the Deltas open with his serrated-blade. As he finished them off more appeared as Arlynes and Boracks alike shot water and lightning at him. He dodged what he could being hit by a couple of bolts. Thankfully he used the bolts to charge himself up as his fur appeared to be static as it surged about his body. Summanus then chopped down any Delta that was close but they were keeping their distance.
Durandel was surprised by the outsider's help but before he could do anything else Duma was on the attack again. Thanks to the new wolf's distraction he too was distracted as Durandel was knocked into his very lava. He then sank disappearing from view. Duma was no fool as he kept his distance from the lava making sure he doesn't pop out and attack him. Dumasani watched the Lava around him as he looked for every possible move that could be made. Then cracks were beginning to surface towards the middle, unaware Duma did not think to look underneath him. Soon lava erupted from behind Duma as Durandel shoved his head out and clamped on Duma's hind leg. Duma was surprised and tried to kick him off. The lava however burned his leg as Durandel pulled him into the lava pit he made. The pit oozed as lava began to burn him as the pit widened. Duma howled and growled in all sort of ways as he was being dragged under. He slowed down time making his decent slower but no less painful as Durandel refused to let go. Duma then sped up time hoping to use his speed to force his way out, but before he could the lava reached his front legs burning them. Duma howled in agony as he began to catch on fire and broke his concentration over time. Soon Duma was lit torch as he was half-submerged in the lava. Then finally both he and Durandel were gone from sight as they were completely submerged into the lava.
Without thinking Fox the Aven shouted out as her ally was killed. "DUMA!!!!" She shouted but was hushed by Anakin. What was this feeling inside her...emotion? No...She was a slave to Rashid. There was no emotion... The emotion though stayed with her even as Rashid took control of her body. "Wh-What are we going to do?" She asked Anakin. "Don't talk like that! You sound like one of the lower species..." Anakin says referring to the ones who weren't controlled by Rashid. "Hmm...Our team is getting pretty weak... All due to that Borack over there...I think we should take him down. If we need any help we will just howl. The battlefield though looks pretty dangerous for a Deon and Aven. If I go out there with my fur transformed into metal like swords, I'll be a walking lightning rod And you would be burnt to a crisp by all that fire and lava..." A small whimper could be heard from Fox as she remembered Dumasani's body being drug into the lava but Anakin ignored it. "Hmm...I got it! An earth wolf could survive many hits from a strike of lightning. I've seen it in battle." Anakin turns his head over to the others a calls three Dimitrios wolf over. All were equipped with a rock like armor. "You all have to take down the enemy Borack.' the three nod together and jump out onto the battlefield causing a slight tremor before their white glowing eyes were gleaming towards Summanus. They charged immediately. Each paw step made another more stronger tremor but they kept it light to keep the mysterious tunnel open.
Fox looked at the battling around her. She whimpered once more at the sight of the Arlynes being shocked by lightning. Her once brigfht white eyes appeared a bit more faint than usual, and Anakin was taking notice.
Above the sky, Anti was keeping a close watch on everything, making sure he was out of view from the Borack and Tenneth but high enough to see the entire battle fold out beneath him. "Ah, a strange tunnel guarded by a Tenneth and Canicus. Nothing unusual there but a Borack... What a strange partnership..." Antigonus said with dismay. Rashid might be right...
((I'm going to control Fox for now.))
Fox suddenly jumped up. Her heart was pounding as a mysterious voice spoke above her. "Is this really what you want?" she repeated. Anakin looked over at her with a pained expression. "Is this really what you want?" she repeats again. Her eyes then started to glow violently. The other side of her regaining it's authority over her body. At times her eyes would stop flashing white exposing her true blue eyes that had been kept hidden for so long.
Pain is all Fox could feel. Pure pain. As if someone had pulled out a knife and slashed her stomach open from the inside. Anakin got ready. It was every slaves job to make sure somebody doesn't cross over. Fox stumbled over in pain muttering a single word. "Help..." Before Anakins fur grew out as swords and razors.
Cerise looked around at the surroundings and other wolves. Her eyes then set on SkyDancer. Cerise paused and her usual happy demeanor took a more serious approach. Cerise has been kind to all wolves. ironically though, her own kind is some that she doesn't feel comfortable with. Cerise's eyes dart toward the ground and she nods a thank you along with Nova before Schemeko pulled up a question. Yes, how long were they staying?
Mydnyte paced around the forest. His glowing red eyes weren't all that luminous in the light. what was he doing in the light anyway. The Kamarian huffed deeply until he heard explosions behind him. Mydnyte pointed his muzzle in the direction of the sound and sure enough more explosive like sounds could be heard. Mydnyte growled. Is Kaveh on his trail? He thought but shook it away. The explosions sounded much more electric...
Mydnyte growled once more before running off in that direction. Jumping over a nearby log, he raced toward the sounds. They were a good distance away so they must be fairly large... Mydnyte breathed deeply before his body became a surge of shadows as he flew through the shadows of just about anything. In a blink of an eye he was on the battle ground of what seemed to be the strangest skirmish between wolves he had ever seen.
Mydnyte snarled at the Borack Sipho as he was charging at Summanus. The Kamarian used his power to create a huge wolf mouth charging at the Borack. The mouth clamped onto the back of Sipho immediately starting to clamp shut as shadows seeped out of the mouth and over Sipho. Sipho howled out and charged up his fur just enough to direct lightning to Mydnyte. The Kamarian used a force field of shadows to protect him but even that couldn't help him just enough for him to feel and electrical shock course through his body causing the shadow wolf to spasm a bit. In that Mydnyte lost focus and the shadow mouth had disappeared into thin air dropping the Alpha Borack onto the ground.
Mydnyte saw a flash of light behind him in the corner of his eyes. He turned his head and saw a Kita tending to the enemy. "Pfft. Kita's." He mutters beforesending a beam of darkness toward the Deon wolf Anakin. It didn't look like it did much when he jumped out and started charging him. Mydnyte growled and kept his place before creating a pool of shadows. The Deon was unable to stop and he toppled over into the dark water. The black water then started to drain into the earth. Mydnyte smiled in victory until the Deon slowly started to withstand the current and make it out of the water in just enough time that the water had drained into nothingness.
Mydnyte stepped back a bit before a blast of electricity hit him dead on. The Kamarian staggered onto the ground and groaned in pain. Anakin then targeted the Kita wolf tending to Fox. Mydnyte was barely able to get up but he managed and sent another shadow mouth towards the Deon wolf. Before the Alpha could reach the two he was grabbed a pulled back into the air.
The shadow teeth clenched around the wolf but was unable to break through his metal fur. Anakin snarled and a metal shard ripped through the earth slicing Mydnytes eye. The wolf was now vulnerable from the left side. He covered his stinging eye up but didn't have enough time to recover before the Borack Sipho had charged up enough energy to blast the Kamarian with another bolt. It hit him once again. Barley hanging on now, Mydnyte turned toward the rest of the wolves. "A little help here!" he shouted angrily before weakly getting up and sending beams of darkness at some of the Delta's.
Rising from the lava Durandel noticed more wolves have entered the fray. Are they allies or foes? Durandel wasn't entirely sure until he heard steam from behind him. Some Arlynes from behind the battle field cool down the lava as three wolves lept for Durandel's body. With some quick thinking Durandel shook his fur dry as if he was covered in water and the specks of lava hit the wolves like a rainstorm. Two for them where Boracks, One was an Arlyne. Lava hit the Arlyne's eyes and the water wolf fell into the same lava pit. The Boracks fell to both sides. Durandel, not hesitating made, the lava swirl as he soon made a small wave and it crashed upon the wolf on the right side. Durandel turned his attention to the next wolf as he prepared to do the same, but the Borack caught on as he dodged the wave. Although the speck of lava was still burning him the Borack quickly shot a bolt at the Canicus. Unfortunately Durandel couldn't have dodged the lightning, even though he really wanted to. There was no way he could dodge such an attack at point black range as Durandel fell backwards. His body trembled uncontrollably as the shock wasn't enough to kill him, but he was immobilized by the hit. The Borack though should be in pain was made to ignore it thanks to Rashid's mind control. The Delta etched closer to Durandel knowing his prey is helpless to stop him as he goes in for the kill.
Summanus fended off the Deltas until these Dimitrios fellows arrived. Dimitrios were clad in stone and stone unfortunately wasn't very conductible. Summanus though had his sword and he could possibly slice open that armor. Still the armor may prove to thick for such a job and he may have to back out. Summanus noticed that a Kamarian arrived. Now that is strange in Summanus' book. Still he appreciated the help as he fought off the higher amp Borack and a Deon. Now for the Dimitrios, with quick thinking he planted his sword in the ground chraged up his shot and blew a lightning bolt at the water the Arlynes shot at him. The lightning surged about shocking the charging Dimitrios, although it slowed them down it didn't seem to kill them like with the Arlynes. Summanus was about to be exhausting his options, he could shoot numerous bolts and eventually chip away at the armor but that is too time consuming. The only thing that could kill these wolves quicker would be the lava. One of these wolves behind him is a Canicus perhaps he could help weaken their armor. When he turned around he noticed one of them was in dire straits. Summanus felt that he couldn't let him die, after all he felt that these wolves need protection. Summanus had little options, either take his chances with these Dimitrios and face death or jump over this lava and have a slim chance of life. Summanus chose the later. Summanus took his sword and charged for the lava. Summoning his strength he made a great leap and landed on the other side. The Dimitrios slowed to a halt as they came face to face with the lava. They could build some sort of bridge but they would have to be carefully as not to disturb the tunnel. Summanus then looked over to the Canicus about to be killed. Even though Summanus jumped over the moat he wouldn;t be able to make the jump over that pit. The moat was more longer than wider and the pit was the opposite. He could have moved around it but there was lava on both sides and he didn't have the time to take the long way around. Summanus was frustrated as he tried to think off something. Then Summanus in a gambit charged his sword and tossed it at the Borack Delta. With luck Summanus' blade impaled the Delta and it dropped to the ground saving Durandel for the time being.
Mydnyte growled at the Dimitrios Deltas and started running towards them. The Dimitrios, carefully planning out a bridge, had little time to react when the Kamarian bit down on the Dimitrios. Instantly, shadows seeped over the wolf before it became nothing. The other two charged at Mydnyte slamming into the poor Kamarian only to hit the Kita's light shield. Mydnyte chuckled before a pool of darkness engulfed the two wolves from where they stand. When the pool was gone, there were no remnants of any other wolves. The dark wolf noticed then that the alpha Borack hadn't thrown a lot of hits lately. He turned his head and noticed that Fox was out of her trance and was fighting off Sipho.
Sipho unfortunately broke free and howled into the air. With that, the wolf's body burst into a yellowlike creature. His fur was standing on end as bolts of electricity shot everywhere. The shield was getting weak but Mydnyte noticed that the ally Borack, Canicus, and Tenneth didn't have anything. Mydnyte jumped over the stream of lava and ran to the side of the Borack and Canicus. He then charged up his energy and created a force field of darkness around the two. It will hold without him concentrating for a good while, he hoped. He then ran off and out of the field where he shot another beam of darkness at the ally Tenneth. Instead of blasting him though, it did the same as the other two. Mydnyte panted a bit and summoned monstrous claws out of his body to start grabbing and killing at the enemy.
Fox meanwhile, summoned vines from beneath the earth to grab wolves around the neck and snap their spines. The Aven wolf looked over at Anakin to see what he was going to do and was shocked to see the wolf continue to attack them instead of doing what she had done. Was it because she was female? Or was he just that far off into the trance? She looked around and saw some of the Delta's hesitating slightly before attacking.
When Sipho saw none of his powers were working, he snarled angrily in frustration and decided to try close combat attacks. That though over, he made his way over to Summanus.
Anti watched everything from above until a Kita brought back Fox from her trance. Anti's ears folded back and he growled before flying off towards Rashid's prison. Once he arrived he ran into Rashid's chambers. "Rashid Sir!" Rashid who was asleep woke up and dazedly looked over at Antigonus. "Sir! A Kita wolf has been seen breaking the trance between the Aven Alpha Fox." Rashid perked up instantly. "What! Grr... Call them back! we can't risk losing any of them and then having a revolt!" He looked over at Anti who was just starting to leave. "HURRY!" Rashid snarled. Anti yelped and scurried out of his chambers and stumbled out of the prison before taking off.
Once he had caught sight of the wolves, Fox had killed a few of the wolves already. "Grr...Traitor." He growled before howling twice. All wolves turned their attention towards the sky and taking off. "Pull back! Pull back!" Sipho howls as the wolves retreat from the others making their way through the woods and towards Rashids prison. Suddenly vines sprouted out of the ground and wrapped around Anakins legs and dragging him towards the others. Anakin growls before getting up and charging at Alina only for his legs to be once again tied by the vines resulting in him to trip and his mouth being tied shut.
Young Tiberius had to bite firmly down on his paw to keep from letting out a squeal of fright. Having been as curious as ever, the young Arlyne had taken to the trees after his dinner to search for a spring, and where better to start looking than where he had seen those wolves earlier? He had viewed those Tenneths in the valley fighting the fire from his vantage point higher in the forest, so where better to go than to where civilization was? Tenneth's had to drink to, right? Or maybe that was just a myth. Anyway, the pup had taken to the trees before any bit of rationalism could stop him, and he soon regretted it.
A fight had seemed to erupted in front of him. It was like that earlier fight he had witnessed with his companion, but this one was infinitely more diverse. Flames and magma seemed to combat lightning and steam, all hurling together into one fabulous light show. Tiberius tried to shield his eyes, but the roar of battle continued on. Growls, taunts, mocking, cries of agony, the cracking and tearing of flesh all forced their way into his ears. There was nothing romantic about this war. Tears in his eyes, Tiberius released his paw from his maw and ran, ran as fast as he could as far as he could. Even as the sights and sounds died down, one sense still remained, perhaps the most grisly of the three. Carried by the wind and enhanced by the bitter chill, the awful smell of the battle reached his nose. It made him gag. The smell of severed flesh, of adrenaline, of rusty metal armor, of blood, of sweat, of tears. Why was battle always looked at with honor, the pup wondered. It was wretched.
Tiberius managed to reach the heights where he had been with that Aven once again, a look of horror on his face. Taking one last look back, he saw the rustling of trees and heard the pounding of paws as one side headed for the hills. Never would he be part of any battle. Never would he harm another.
Seeing the collection of wolves retreat Summanus eased himself. Who ever the Kamarian was his shields and abilities helped us in the end. The shield soon fell and Summanus walked around the lava pit and went pass the Canicus. "Don't worry." He spoke mildly. "The numbness will pass on, your body just needs readjustment." Summanus explained as he walked over to the felled Borack. Summanus placed his maw over the handle and removed it from it's body. Summanus then took it over to one of the puddles of water made by those Arlynes and laid the blade upon it. Although it wasn't the best cleaning it did wash off the blood and that was most important, as he took his paw and wiped of the mud. Summanus then took his blade by the lava and held it tightly in his mouth as he let the heat dry it. Once it reached an adequate time he then sheathed his blade and returned to the others. He noticed the Kita was injured as she tried to hide it by trying to get up. "You shouldn't force yourself to move." Summanus spoke towards Alina. "You need to have someone check your injuries." Summanus recommended. "Preferably someone who is good with medicine." Summanus looked around at the destruction. It was quite a battle but he wondered why it even happened. This could have been a part of any war effort. There where far too many different wolves fighting at once. Something strange was at work here but Summanus couldn't place it.
Durandel slowly started to rise, but the numbness from the shock was still persistent. Durandel fell down again as his legs felt like jelly. He tried to speak as well but his tongue was feeling the similar affects as the rest of his body. Durandel decided to lay down and allow the numbness to pass, hopefully it will not take so long a time. Durandel decided to watch the others. He notived the Kita that arrived was badly injured, if he might have helped if it wasn't for the electricity that surged about him. In his current state he can't exactly help anyone even himself. He would like to thank the Borack for saving his life but he couldn't exactly formulate words that are coherent. Instead he watched everyone and everything carefully, you can never be too sure during a war.
Fox looked at the fallen Kita. Vines wrapped around her body and head before they lifted her up and onto her feet. Fox quickly walked to the Kita's side before one of the vines grew around her front body as well. "Borack. Assist on the other side please." Fox said in a bit of a struggle as she snapped the vine from the ground. All the Kita's weight(Which wasn't a lot really considering she needed to lift off the ground to fly) seemed to almost drag her down, thankfully Fox was strong enough to hold her up.
Mydnyte staggered over to the others. Panting was no option. His sides heaved a bit as his muzzle collected much needed air. He looked over at Durandel. "H-hey what happened back there." He said in a somewhat stern voice almost commanding for an answer. He had no idea what was going on. All he aw were wolves with white eyes and a large whole in the earth which looked like some sort of tunnel. Mydnyte could never be sure though.
Cerise followed the group. Her eyes were trained on the Seti. Excitement seemed to build up inside of her and fatigue no longer became an issue. Almost everyone had never seen a Seti, and here was one. Standing about five feet away from her! She had so many questions, but she decided that all that has happened to the poor guy had already been quite enough. The next thing he needs is to be bombarded with questions from a very excited Avira like herself. Cerise sighed deeply. Her eyes were wondering around the room that they had just entered until they rested on a plate of food in front of her. She licked her chops and took notice that Nova had already started to chow down on his food. Eagerly to. She smiled and dove into her food as well. Her ears picked up the sound of Warrior about to discuss a plan to them. Plan! they had just got here. Ugh, it seems that they would have to be on the move once more.
Once Cerise was done with her delicious meat, she looked over at Warrior to see what sort of plan they needed to discuss.
"Yes of course." Summanus answered as he helped the Kita on the left side. He helped give her support. "Since your an Aven do you have any medicine to help with such a cut?" Summanus asked Fox as he looked towards the Kita's injury. Summanus noticed the Kamarian speak in a demanding sort of way. Then he noticed him speaking towards the red wolf. "I'm sorry he won't be able to speak properly for a few minutes since he's numb from the shock." "You see a Borack hit him dead on, thankfully he didn't generate enough amps to kill him but he did incapacitate him." "I wouldn't worry though he will be back on his feet in a little bit." Summanus explained to Mydnyte.
He followed the others and found the rooms and plates of food for each of them. It will be strange to eat something other than toads and snakes but it won't be terrible for him. Schemeko ate the food as he heard that plans will be made. Something about rebellions and gods. None of the stuff that really interests Schemeko. Really? Gods and Goddesses? They are all tales or if they were real they most certainly forgotten about them. Of course this was just his own opinion but he didn't voice them. Obviously it would make these wolves upset. Anyway Schemeko could do with some rest it has been awhile. Schemeko decided to rest at least there are worse places to rest. Before he could slip away he heard Nova and the strange wolf speak up. Hmph, this wolf certainly pick the most "ill-opportune" time to ask for help. Schemeko thought to himself as he gave a slight chuckle. Then Nova obviously didn't like the sound of underground wolves rebelling. Which makes sense if these wolves are the same as WarriorDemon then where all screwed. Schemeko laughed a little bit to himself, it was funny to think that a bunch of tunnel wolves were going to kill them all. Life certainly has a sick sense of humor. It was odd for Schemeko not say anything but he felt he could contribute very little to any of these wolves problems. He had no desire to quell rebellions and to assist in helping empresses, these were all jobs for some sort of government. Schemeko was definitely not a public servant. In fact Schemeko tried his best to stay out of the war, he had no desire to fight in it besides why would he? All of the chaos was humorous to witness but he knew that wars don't last forever so being uninvolved just ensured it will last at least a little longer. It's not like he longed for war he isn't a warmonger, but he merely appreciated the strife that came with it. The despair and destruction was certainly an art form. Of course there are better ways to see this than just by war, it's just that war is the easiest to start. Schemeko decided not to voice his opinion he was already dragged in enough of this more than he wished to be. In the meantime he is going to rest he can't exactly think well while tired. Schemeko then closed his eyes and tried to receive as much rest as he possibly could.
Fox turned her head toward the Borack wolf. "Hmm...Medicine? I'm sorry but I was trained as a warrior not a doctor..." Fox says in a somewhat monotone voice. She then starts to walk in the direction of the tunnel. "Do you know what lies in the tunnel?" She asks Summanus.
Mydnyte noticed the wolf not speaking as Summanus began to speak up. "Oh.." He mutters before flicking his tail a bit before following Fox.
((Yay short posts))
As Cerise began to sink deeper into her doze, flashes of some sort of...battle appeared before her. They were little snip its but she could make out the entire thing... A dark wolf and a light wolf preparing to fight...The dark wolf appearing out of the shadows...The dark wolf chained up...The last snip it was of that same wolf snarling out as all the wolves in front of him seemed to fade away into nothingness...Taking away each layer, first skin, muscle, then bones. Eventually the bones fell to the ground until they were nothing but dust as well. Everything was silent after that. It took Cerise a moment before she realized there was nothing...
Cerise's eyes flashed open and her tail lifted off her eyes. Now wide awake, not caring about how much sleep she got, she stood and made her way over to another side of the room before sitting down. She yawned and looked around her before remembering past events, she sighed. "U-uhh, I can watch over them for now Warrior. You go ahead and find who ever can help us..." she says, remembering the last thing she heard from Warrior before she dozed off. Cerise looked away from WarriorDemons eyes knowing well enough of her mind reading capabilities.
"Hm?" Summanus mumbled as he looked over to the tunnel then back to Fox. "I'm sorry I have no idea, you may want to ask one of the fire wolves." Summanus said point his nose at Rokunam and then at Durandel. "After all I only arrived after these two where attacked, not before." "If anyone would know anything it would be one of them." Summanus replied. He never heard of Aven warriors but he suppose every pack needs some since a war is raging. He had no interest in the war, mainly because he has no allegiances. He may be a Borack but he is not affiliated with the pack and merely has performed odd jobs for anyone hiring. Pretty much Summanus has sat out of this war, sure he has seen the destruction during his wandering and had to defend himself from time to time. Overall however, Summanus has not partaken in any of the many battles that has occurred over the island, and the only time he did help his pack was when he was hired by Shimmer Doom. Yet he could hardly call that a battle when her Boracks invaded the Sakura Ruins. The Kitas peacefully surrendered it was rather surprising and Summanus did respect them for their peaceful ways. Holding up this Kita here is making him regret helping Shimmer Doom, sure she said it was for the Cause but what was the Cause? Summanus at least was grateful he didn't have to kill any of the Kitas. Still he felt bad for the one here before him. Does she even know her people have been taken prisoner? Does she know that the Ruins she called home is being occupied by the Boracks? Summanus hoped she was unaware of their situation, he would hate to have her know about such saddening news. Even if she did he would have to deny his knowledge of it, he did promise Shimmer after all. The Borack with the title of "Doom". In the Borack pack they give titles to their most distinguishing warriors, yet there are seven prestigious titles. Out of these seven titles it is said that "Doom" is the most prestigious next to "Bane", another title.
Once again Durandel tried to pull himself up once again only to feel numb. He wobbled around as he tried to gain his footing but it was difficult. It was as if walking on water or lava. The ground felt like it was unstable and made of soft material as it threatened to knock him down again. Durandel persisted but only managed to make baby step as his body trembled. He could still feel his tongue was numb as he tried to produce words but failed to make any kind of coherent sound. Durandel merely stood still as he tried to shake out of it but it proved fruitless as he fell down again. Durandel picked himself up again and continued to make more baby steps as he slowly began to regain his footing.
Fox sighed and looked down at the ground. "Look, paw prints..." She says. Yes there were paw prints that had been made not to long ago, and the faint smell of wolf too only this smell was unfamiliar to Fox. "You fire wolf." She says to Rokunam. "Is it safe to venture into these tunnels?" She asks. "Surely there has to be someone that could help..." She speaks blandly.
Summanus still holding the Kita wolf up saw two wolves suddenly appear deep from within a nearby cave. He had no idea wolves where inside the cave but if they were why didn't they help sooner? Summanus was confused but he watched them he wasn't entirely sure if they were hostile or friendly.
Durandel stood up once more and began to walk slowly but surely he could move without tumbling over. Durandel made indistinguishable sounds with his mouth trying to speak coherent words. All though his speech sounded slurred, he could make out some words. "It looksh l-like I can shtand again." Durandel spoke as he heard something from behind. He slowly turned around to see two large wolves come from deep within the nearby cave. Durandel noticed one of them speaking towards Rokunam, Do they know each other? Durandel thought. He then spoke towards Rokunam, "Are thesh f-friends of yoursh?" Durandel asked trying to speak as clearly as possible but it was difficult as he felt numbness all over his tongue.
Schemeko actually made himself comfortable and accidentally dozed off. Schemeko didn't believe at first he could sleep but then again he really hasn't slept in days. Thanks to sleep deprivation Schemeko was more injured than he thought himself to believe. Although there were no physical wounds his body was greatly weak from the lack of sleep and now it has begun to heal. Schemeko could hear Cerise and Nova's voice in the room but he was so drowsy he could not distinguish the words and therefor continued to slumber. There was a nagging feeling in the back of his mind however, he is too tired to care at the moment. So in his moment of vulnerability he silently hoped that these wolves he has found himself with will watch over him for the time being. Sure he isn't used to relying on others considering his behavior towards others. Still the wolves have miraculously tolerated him, even though he caused or was about to cause some trouble. Still that was in the past and for the time being he will have resist the urge to do some mischief.
Schemeko watched Nova trying to support himself upon his shoudler but ended up failing. "Becareful now we don't want you making things worse for yourself." Schemeko said melodically as he looked over to "WarriorDemon." Nova asked more about Blue Team until the copy wolf spoke up. Ever since meeting this wolf he sounds more crazier than Schemeko. Always talking as if there were other people in the room. Then he split into four different wolves. "I guess I spoke too soon." Schemeko thought to himself as he gave a chuckle. The Seti Wolf spoke towards WarriorDemon but yet referred to her as Keta. He asked why we weren't running or hiding. This situation became rather strange for Schemeko. Here he had Mishaa yapping that this wasn't "Demy" and then the Sedi called her Keta. What's going on here? As Schemeko thought to himself. There seemed to be this evidence piling up suggesting that the wolf right here isn't WarriorDemon but this wolf looks and acts exactly like her. Intriguing. Was all Schemeko could think of.
---Durandel & Summanus---
Durandel nodded as Rokunam spoke relatively light-heatedly with these wolves. The she-wolf however seemed rather unpleasant as she ordered them to follow her. Durandel wasn't sure if he would folllow strange wolves into a cave even if they are Rokunam's friends. Then Durandel saw Fox and Mydnyte beginning to follow them Durandel then turned to Rokunam. "Well ifsh your following themsh I shallsh come." Durandel numbly spoke stating he has his back if he needs it.
Summanus wasn't exactly comfortable with so readily entering a cave with strangers. Not to mention he doesn't like being inside for too long. Electricity doesn't like to be grounded and neither does he. Still he saw a couple of the other wolves following them and heard the lava wolf would go if the Tenneth did. Then he saw Fox lead the wounded wolf and she was having trouble standing on her own. Summanus really didn't want to enter the cave he had a bad feeling in his gut if he did. Still watching the injured wolf being dragged made Summanus feel guilty, although he had absolutely nothing to do with them and him leaving wouldn't make them feel any different about him. He can do it he has done it before, after all he was used as a mercenary from time to time. A soldier of fortune, no true allegiances. He looked towards the wilderness then back at the others. His guilt however was rooted in what he has done to the Kita's people. He couldn't rectify the mistakes he's made but he could at least help her to the cave. Summanus pondered this before acting.
Summanus walked up to Alina as he slightly nudged her. "Come on now." "Please don't die on us." Summanus called out to her hoping she will live. Summanus could hear the sounds of other wolves as he watched Alina walked down into the cave. He wasn't sure what was going on but it didn't sound good. "Come on we should head back to the others, it's much safer back above ground." Summanus spoke trying to reason with the injured Kita wolf. So far it seemed to be a hopeless cause, Summanus may as well be talking to a wall. He wasn't quite sure what to do. He could heal her, he was no Aven. The best he could do is shock her to restart he heart if she goes under but that won't stop the bleeding. Not to mention if it was internal as well. Summanus then heard a voice from the other side. "Hey!" "Is everything alright down there?!" The voice belonged to the lava wolf Durandel whose voice was no longer slurred from the electrical shock. "No!" "Things don't look good from here!" "We need that Aven back down here!" Summanus called back. "Alright." Durandel called as he left.
"Hey Fox." Durandel called towards the Aven. "The Borak says the Kita wolf isn't doing so well." "I heard you weren't much for healing but it sounds really bad." "Can't you do something?" Durandel asked. So far Durandel has had nothing but bad luck since leaving the mountains in search for food. He should have stayed and done the patrol he believed to be boring at times. He has no idea how those wolves on the front lines deal with this everyday.
Schemeko listened to Nova as he gave the layout of things before the sudden dust storm appeared all around them. Schemeko tried to see what Nova spoke about but the dust was too prevalent and surely it would harm his eyes if he opened them up to wide. Before he could respond to Nova he caught a glimpse of Mishaa about to fall. With out thinking Schemeko rushed towards where he last saw her and grasped he scruff with his mouth before she dropped out of his reach. Schemeko lifted her up and went back to Nova and placed her on the ground next to him. "Sorry about that!" Schemeko yelled. "I saw the pup about to meet her maker." "I had to save her, no one else could with the toxins on her fur." Schemeko spoke as he looked over to BattleDemon. "I don't know if I'm noticing this right but Warrior or BattleDemon isn't doing too good." "She looks conflicted while...unconscious." Schemeko spoke as he tried to find Cerise. "I can't see Cerise any where with out opening my eyes to wide!" "Do you think she got away?" Schemeko asked Nova.
Fox took a minute to ponder what was happening. They had followed the others into the dark gloomy cave and had mistakenly fallen into some kind of trap. The Alva they were following seemed to have left, and beyond the stone walls sounded like a real commotion. Fox's ears flicked toward Durandel as he suddenly spoke.
Her eyes slowly drifted on the ground before reaching Alinas body. Fox sighed as she continued to stare at the Kita's almost lifeless body lying in her own pool of blood. "Well...I guess I could try something..." She says before sitting down on the soft clay to think. After a few minutes she had an idea that has helped countless of Aven soldier during battle.
She stood up. "I do know one solution that has helped my people when they were facing death...But it will be a bit difficult to grow in such a narrow cave as such...That, and I've heard that such a strong medicine as this has took its toll on those who are willing to grow such a tree..." Fox pondered a bit longer. "I could try..." She says finally before stepping back a bit from the group.
If the cave did end up collapsing, they had a powerful Dimitrios to move the rubble aside if that were to happen. And as for Fox? Well, she was strong. Or so she hoped. These wolves could endure without her if she were to pass out and she could find her own way through the cave or out of the cave. As much as she hated to admit to herself, she would miss this very unlikely group of wolves if they ever were to part...
Fox snapped out of her thoughts and began to concentrate on the earth in front of her. She looked around her neck where a vine of some sort wrapped around. In its pods it held various seeds used for medicine, energy, or battle-like uses. She studied each pod until she came upon a golden brown pod that hung from the vine in the center of her neck. She cleared her throat. "I would advise that everyone step back..." Fox says with the usual emotionless expression. Carefully, she takes the pod in her maw and cracks it open. Immediately, a seed falls onto the ground.
The unimpressive thing had a dark brown cover and was the size of an adult wolfs nose. The Aven begins to concentrate a bit more carefully, infusing her powers into the seed and throughout the earth. Soon enough, roots tour from the brown cover, embedding themselves in the earth. Some reaching the other wolfs feet. This surprised the Aven making her loose her focus only for a second before regaining it back again. Quicker than what she had in mind, the seed had already sprouted and was already fanning out limbs. Its trunk reached to the top of the cave and stopped when it could grow no more. Its branches slowly began to dip toward the earth as leaves suddenly flourished among the branches. No sooner had the leaves appeared the fruit had too. One of the fruits already ripened and fell to the ground. Its hard shell cracked splitting the oval produce in two. Its redish-purple juices flooded the ground.
Fox just stood there. Everything was a bit fuzzy...Did she make it through it? "Uh...Er...I may not be an expert at what all of these things do..." She says referring to the pods on her neck. "But I do know that this...is a very...very sacred...fruit...Used to cure internal and...and...external...wounds." Immediately after she said this everything went black.
Durandel sniffed at the wondrous fruit, mind filled with curiosity and doubt. Durandel has heard of the Aven's way of healing those who are injured but he assumed they used herbs and not fruit. Sure fruit may cure hunger but not certainly drastic wounds. Well maybe not hunger either as all Durandel can think about at the moment is meat. "Well I'll get this piece of fruit over to the Kita." Durandel spoke as he picked up half of the fruit with his teeth. He quickly reached Alina and Summanus and placed the fruit near Alina's maw. "Here the Aven said you should eat this fruit." "She said it is scared or something and can heal your wounds." Durandel instructed as he moved back towards the cave entrance. "Oh." Durandel blurted as he turned around. "Also tell us if she needs more, that's only half of the fruit." Durandel called at Summanus. Then Durandel moved away from Summanus' sight.
Summanus and Schemeko
Summanus looked at the fruit as reddish-purple juices came out of the fruit's flesh. Summanus had never seen such a fruit but then again it's probably only found amongst the Avens. Summanus looked with concern for the Kita wolf as he hoped she will eat. "Please you must eat...what sense is their in dying so soon?" Summanus stoically spoke as he heard footsteps coming from the opposite direction. "Hm?" "What is it now?" Summanus grumbled as he turned his attention back down the tunnel. The footsteps grew louder as someone was going about an abrupt pace. Summanus sniffed the air down below and recognized as another wolf. "Now who could be down here?" "Is it that rather large she-wolf?" "No this air smells foul." Summanus spoke as he took a defensive stance. Summanus began to growl to warn any potential enemies that he is ready to fight whoever is coming.
Schemeko heard voices coming from before him. None of the voices he recognizes but one thing is for sure one of them is growling. Of all the luck! Schemeko cursed in his head. Of course there had to be guards up here too.
Schemeko groaned at the thought. He contemplated running the other way but that would defeat the purpose. Perhaps there could be away around them but so far this tunnel has ran pretty straight. So chance of finding another tunnel seemed slim. Running out of options would seem Schemeko would have to fight his way out of here. Formulating plan he decided to use the darkness of the Tunnel to his advantage. If he could conceal himself enough in the shadows then the enemy wouldn't be able to tell right away that he is a Hemlock. By the time they do however it would be too late and Schemeko would be too close. He was sure if he could give, even these wolves, a full dosage of his toxin they would go down like any other wolf. Well you got a plan Schemeko I suggest we use the element of surprise. Schemeko thought to himself as he slowed down. I'm going to have to leave the pup here if this to work. Schemeko said as he was bout to drop the pup but then he caught another familiar scent. Wait...do I smell....blood? Yes it is blood! Somebody's injured. Schemeko then had another flurry of thoughts swirling in his head. Who could it be? It wouldn't be the bear and I am certain that none of the others made it before me otherwise I would have ran into them by now. Schemeko came to another conclusion, Maybe these are different wolves? Maybe there were others attacked by SkyDancer as well? Schemeko decided to make a gamble and dropped Mishaa gently and called out. "Hello!?" "Are you friendly?!"
Summanus heard a voice call out to him and was surprised by it's words. Why would anyone reveal themselves and ask if I was friendly? Summanus thought as he tried to figure out the mystery wolf's agenda. "I don't know that depends if your friendly!" Summanus called back.
Schemeko heard a response, he gambled and won. Schemeko smirked as he called back, "Yes I am." "I'm not lying either, and I have a pup with me to prove it." Schemeko responded knowing that the wolf would take interest in this.
Summanus listened. "A pup you say?" "That seems a little too out of the ordinary if you ask me." "Why would you have a pup with you?" Summanus asked.
"Because I do." "I'll be more than happy to prove it if you allow me to come near you." Schemeko called.
Summanus looked back at Alina and then down there. Summanus sighed. He didn't want to risk Alina but if the wolf speaks the truth he doesn't want to abandon a potential pup. "Fine but I'll be watching you and trust me if you do anything funny...you'll be dead before you could blink." "That I can prove to you as well." Summanus warned without hesitation in his voice.
"Yes of course." Schemeko cooed. He picked up Mishaa and brought her and himself into Summanus' sight. Summanus could see the puppy and then looked at Schemeko. "It seems your were telling the truth." Summanus spoke as he looked at the pup. "Is she alright?" He asked concerned. Schemeko brought Mishaa before Summanus and laid her down. "See for yourself, she's fine just worn out." Schemeko said reassuringly. "It doesn't seem she's alright though." Schemeko motioning towards Alina. Summanus looked over at Alina. "No she isn't but that fruit by her mouth should heal her." Summanus said not taking his eyes off her. Schemeko noticing the tension casually commented, "Well I don't think eating is going to help." Schemeko joked. "No the fruit is special it has curative properties or something." Summanus said trying to comfort himself more than anything else. "Well whatever you say but she's going to need more than a bite to eat." Schemeko casually mentioned. "Is there way out of this tunnel?" Schemeko asked. "Uh...yeah it's just right behind me." Summanus motioned behind him. "Ah excellent, I've been trying to get out of here all day!" Schemeko said with glee. "Yeah well you should know there are others too, so uh tell them I said it was okay." Summanus mentioned before Schemeko took off. "Oh and I should tell you that there are others too besides me." "There just straggling though because of injuries." "So just to warn you look for an sandy-pelted Asui, an white Avira by the name of Cerise, or an large Alva she-wolf."
Summanus' ears perked up at the last description. "An Alva she-wolf?" "Do you mean the one that was looking for Rokunam?" Summanus asked. "Uh, probably, she went by WarriorDemon but now it's BattleDemon I think." Schemeko tilted his head in confusion. "So you met her already?" Schemeko asked. "Well if you and I are still thinking about a large, mean, and aggressive she-wolf then yes." Summanus summed up. "Yep, that would be the same." Schemeko nodded as he walked by Mishaa. "So before I leave what's your name?" "So I can tell your friends?" Schemeko asked. "Summanus." He said. "Summanus." "Alright, thank you very much." Schemeko said as he picked up Mishaa. Schemeko walked by Alina and looked at her. Poor girl. Schemeko thought. "Wait." Summanus called. "What's you name?" "For your friends?" Summanus asked. "Schemeko." Schemeko spoke his voice a bit muffled. "Alright I'll send them up if I see them." Summanus said as Schemeko went on his way.
Schemeko moved up the tunnel as he smelt the air become fresher. I hope the others made it out. Schemeko thought.
As comforting as was the prospect of finally being above ground again, the steady incline was hard on Nova's weary body. It was troublesome how he couldn't remember a time of not being injured. It all started with that cuff on the maw that he had asked Nero to give him, and things seem to go downhill from there almost systematically. How was Nero getting along anyway, anything before that great fire seemed a distant memory. He seemed to be a whole different wolf altogether back then too. A nationalistic young scout with a strong case of wanderlust. Now, having had his literal and figurative baptism by fire, his former self seemed nothing more than a naive, arrogant fool. How could he had been so blind to all that was going on around him? Who knew there was an entire underground civilization of wolves? Was his pack even worth fighting this horrible war for? He had seen his "enemies" face to face, and they weren't bloodthirsty.
Had his head been held up, he would have noticed the wolf standing in the corridor long before he eventually did, and by the time he had looked up he was not more than a meter away from what appeared to be another bruiser. Of course there would be a guard up here. Luck has never been in his favor, why would it decide to change now? Noticeably dejected, Nova looked past the wolf in the hope of seeing some inkling of sunlight, as the air had seemed to have been becoming fresher. All he saw was an injured figure on the ground. BattleDemon perhaps? His sandy night vision couldn't really distinguish features in the dim light of the tunnel. All Nova knew was that he would soon be joining her there.
"Well go on then. Throw me in the arena. Take me to her ladyship. Beat me. Just make it quick." Nova recited his statement neutrally to this wolf standing in front of him, with an attitude almost as disconnected as someone reciting a recipe for a meat pie.
Summanus notice that the new wolf coming from up the tunnel was lost in his own thoughts, otherwise he would have made some notion of aggression before coming so close to Summanus. Naturally he would be aggressive towards a newcomer as he had been with the green wolf before him. Yet, Summanus did keep an open mind about other wolves possibly passing him by and he intently looked for Schemeko's descriptions. While he tried to analyze this wolf, he already spoke.
"Well go on then. Throw me in the arena. Take me to her ladyship. Beat me. Just make it quick."
"Well I don't know what your talking about but I'll be happy to oblige unless you answer me this," Summanus paused, "Do you happen to be an Asui?" Summanus asked in a no-nonsense tone. He noticed the sandy-pelt and hopefully wished he would answer yes to his question, otherwise being this close to Alina he would have to use his sword to cut down his enemy.
Schemeko and Durandel
Schemeko noticed the small whimper from Mishaa was she was coming too. "It's alright." He mumbled as he continued to walk on. He hoped she would remain cooperative a little while longer as he knew he was about to reach the surface. Schemeko walked further up nearly reaching the exit as he saw the light at the end of the tunnel being blocked by a couple bodies. "Please don't shoot or whatever you can do." Schemeko jovially called as he placed Mishaa between his front paws to protect her.
Durandel turned around to notice a different wolf appear from the likes of the Kita or Borak. "Hm?" "Who are you!?" Durandel barked as he protective instincts kicked in.
"Oh I'm just a simple wolf who is of no consequence." Schemeko whimsically spoke.
"Then I guess no one will miss you!" Durandel aggressively replied.
"Wait Summanus said it was fine, let me come into the light." Schemeko quickly responded as he picked up Mishaa and to his surprise he would see a couple of familiar faces. Schemeko saw three wolves and two of them he recognized, the shadow wolf and the lava wolf. Placing Mishaa down before him he spoke, "Why your the Kamarian and Tenn- I mean Canicus from earlier." Schemeko spoke in a very relaxed tone. "You I don't remember." Schemeko commented as he looked towards Fox. "If I didn't know better I would say your were a fox." Schemeko playfully spoke.
"Oh I do remember you, your that rather odd Hemlock from before." Durandel spoke as he eased his pose. "Don't worry everybody this isn't an enemy." Durandel said relaying the message to the others.
"Ah I can see the exit, you won't believe the day I've had." Schemeko spoke lacking seriousness.
Taken aback that the Borak's immediate response was not physical but verbal, Nova looked over the other wolf quizzically before he formulated a response. "Indeed I am. I would give you a demonstration if I had any energy left besides what it takes to breath and limp. If this is an interrogation I suppose you would want my name too. Nova, son of Denali. Why am I trying to escape? I don't want to be fed to a bear. Anything else?" Nova asked, noting that he probably had not dropped enough hints that he was being sarcastic. Hopefully this Borak was not too dense.
Other than his own voice, he heard another speak up as well. It was that wolf behind the Borak that he had assumed to be BattleDemon, but he now realized that he had been mistaken. Her features were rather striking even through her injuries, and she spoke with a calming melody of a hidden power. And of course, she had wings, so there was no way she could be an Alva. What had she been saying? She had been ambushed by wolves? Nova hoped that she wasn't telling the Borak that he had ambushed her, her pronouns were ambiguous.
