Introduction

Country name:

Isiriffa


Land:

Mostly dominated by city and urban suburbs accept for a patch a forest about 100 miles around located on the east coast and bordered by the ocean,


Political layout:

Isiriffa is a country of about 10,000,000,000 people split between it’s four main cities and surrounding suburbs. The country is relatively peaceful living in constant worship of the God Carssas who preaches obedience, regularity, and discipline. The ruler, Odis Diangelis, keeps his people firmly under his control, as his father before him did. A strict man, Odis makes sure any trouble makers are swiftly squashed. Supporting the leader of Isiriffa is Daren Sholette, the high priest of the church of Carassas.
The four Cities; Fernhot, Bowtrip, Kouv, and the capital Cealli are policed by constables; Jillian Reusser, Nick Cabrero, Jeff Klohr, an Lenita Sholette and their underlings simply known as enforcers.


The Forest:

The Taisser forest is densely grown woodland walled off from the rest of the country with only one access point connecting it to the Cealli, the capitol. This access point is constantly well guarded by enforcers. Within the forest is a compound, this is the Groveelm compound and houses the unnatural of Isiriffa that have free rein of the forest.


The Compound:

Groveelm can house around 200 residence at a time and up kept by it’s inhabitance at the orders of Joel Diangelis, the son of Odis. The compound was made to house the unnatural born. The unnatural are fed a simple meal of bread and small bits of meat twice a day and it is all they get unless they find their own food in the forest.


Social layout:

The general population of the country don’t have any defining traits accept for the regularity their religion teaches them. As an individual member of society you are encouraged to blend in with society and the mold set by Odis and Daren. Parents teach their children at a young age that individuality is unneeded and disgusting.
As teens the young of Isiriffa are warned that if they displease Carssas they will punished with an abhorrent child, an unnatural. This isn't entirely untrue, on occasion a child is born bearing a difference of some kind. These differences can range from being more animal than human to simple powers, such as telepathy. The unnatural children are collected upon birth if possible and taken from the parents. Some are told the truth while others are told their child died or some other lie. Sometimes a child will not immediately show that they are unnatural, as soon as it is discovered the children are taken. A few unnaturals have escaped this by hiding their abilities or slight deformities until death.
The unnaturals are brought to Groveelm where they grow up among other unnaturals. The young are taught early on that the people outside the wall of the forest are mean and dangerous. They are told that Odis has them sectioned them off to protect and that they owe him complete loyalty. Groveelm is not the nicest place, sometimes the enforcers get angry and take it out on the residence, the compound itself isn't the cleanest or best accommodated, but the unnaturals are free and encouraged to explore their differences and abilities.
There is darkness here however, on their 25th birthdays the unnaturals are hauled away from the compound, most never return, and if they do it’s as vicious enforcers. No one knows what happens to them outside the Compound…

Beth leaned into her hand and sighed, "Winter you don't get it, I have nothing to do with what the enforcers do. I'm a normal unnatural, a prisoner here just like her." Beth motioned to the unconscious Admeta, "Tiberius is-was a tracker, That's his thing, he could sense anyone within a mile of him, I tried to get away from your home so he wouldn't fuck you over." She looked at Winter hopefully but the mans eyes still shone with hate, "Winter really I-"
The door swung open and cut her off as the three enforcers that had beaten Beth earlier stepped in, "I thought I told you to stay down." said the main aggressor.
Beth felt the blood drain from her face, "I'm sorry." her voice was a whisper as they approached.
"Then you'll listen this time." The three started forward.
Beth was fully healed because of Admeta, there was a chance she could flee. Beth sread her wings and tempted to fly away, this time she pushed as hard as she could and through a few punches hoping the enforcers would dodge out of her way and clear a path to the window or door, but she had no such luck, "No!" she cried as the enforcers gripper her arms and pulled her down. The force of their pulling caused Beth to hit the floor hard. Her jaw had been the first to collide with the wood and now a small trickle of blood escaped her mouth. Beth opened her eyes and met Winter's, the enforcer's had Beth pinned now by both her legs and one arm.
"I'll tell you what," Tiberius's friend smile sickly as he drew his gun, "I'll only make the beating last ten minutes this time, you make it through that and I'll release your pathetic soul to Carssas." Beth yelped as the butt of the gun was brought down between her wings. Why were these enforcers so good with senseless violence, "Struggle and I'll do worse, and make you live with it...' There was an edge to his voice that made Beth sick to the point of puking on the spot, Oh god, not that..
"What about that one?" One of the others asked.
Tiberius's friend stopped hitting Beth and looked at Admenta, "I'll just kill her, tomorrow is her 25th, she's dead anyways."
Beth took the opportunity she had and reached forward mouthing 'help' to Winter as she unlatched his cage.

Winter burst through the cage door landing the the enforcer who had Beth pinned. The enforced hand landed square on his back with Winter directly on top of him and with a single motion Winter ripped the enforcers throat out. He looked up to see Beth, free now, and pinning the enforcer who had been beating her. The final enforcer, the one who had been such a tough shit, and offered to so generously put Admeta out of her misery now fled on foot. There was nothing he could now, the commotion was sure to bring others and he needed answers. So he returned to his two legged form and picked up the dagger had had cast off the previous night. "alright listen up! every minute you don't answer my questions, I cut off a finger!" he points a dagger at the mans crotch "all eleven of them! Where are they taking unusuals!" the man sputtered in terror "I don't know! and I wouldn't tell you if I did!" Winter sighed "not this bull shit." It had cost the man six fingers before he was convinced that the enforcer really didn't know. Beth gaged the entire time, but held him down none the less. They were out of time anyway and with a final stroke Winter put him out of his misery. He then slung Admeda over his shoulder. "This place isn't safe for us anymore....or you...the enforcers will be after us. Come with me or don't I don't care." And with that he fled out the front door, making a mad dash to get out of the compound.

Beth was overcome with relief as Winter sprung at the enforcers and not her. She soon found herself free but covered in blood. Beth helped Winter as he questioned one of the enforcers, she knew it was useless, but held her tongue as she felt Winter needed to at least try. He took off a few minutes later. Beth knew she would die if she stayed here but there was something she felt the need to do first, "I'll catch up!" She called to the retreating dog. Quick as a flash Beth ran up to Matty and Roth's room, neither of them were there and she was glad, they didn't need to see her covered in blood. Beth reached back and plucked a feather from each wing and left them on her friend's beds. They would get the message 'I'm alive, but goodbye.'
Beth through open their window then and shot into the sky as fast as possible, Vi was beside her within the second. Beth flew low so the enforcers couldn't see her over the trees. It seemed like ages before she finally caught up to Winter. Beth slowed down a bit and ducked into the trees dodging them as she went, if it wasn't for the danger she was in this might even be fun.

Admeta was conscious and pacing beside Winter by the time Beth caught up. "So you made it? good." He of course was familiar with the area they were in, he was close to being home. "We're going home. my home. I need supplies and there are way worse things in this forest at night than me. tomorrow we leave this forest. Admeta turns 25 tomorrow and I need answers." All three of them were quiet now as they climbed back into his home. He gathered supplies, and opened his weapon cabinet. He pulled his favorites and turned to the others. "pick what ya like! I got swords, guns, I think I even have a few maces in there. We're gunna need em" after they made their decision he offer his room to Admeta. He wasn't sure where Beth and Vi got to but he was sure they were near by. Finally he turned into a dog and curled up on the rug and slept. They had a long journey ahead of them and he needed all the rest he could get.

Beth and Vi sat among the branches farther up the tree Winter's home was in. From up there the pair could keep watch for any enforcers approaching.Beth yawned, "Vi can you wake me if someone's coming?" The raven bobbed her head and Beth leand against the tree, passing out almost immediately.
Beth woke at dawn.

Winter had a large pack over his shoulder, Admeta a very small one and together they gathered small bobbles they felt they needed for their journey. Beth and Vi flew down from their perch, just as Winter was about to leave. "Ah there you are. figured you'd gone and run off again." He sighed "we're going to Bowtrip City. If anyone knows my unusuals disappear at 25 its their people working at the hospitals. Maybe while we're there....we can stop it from happening to Admeta." He looked at Beth's weapon of choice and glared her down. "be prepared to use that thing. if we get caught trying to escape the forest the enforcers won't be as gentle as the last time we saw them....there will be a lot of of them. We move now." He set the pace at a quick trot, moving towards the entrance of the forest. He knew after the mess at the compound the enforcers would be out searching for them so they had to move quickly. As he neared the entrance of the forest he stopped. "stop. Send Vi out to scout for us. its too quiet here."

Beth nodded warily, "I'm not afraid to kill." She looked at her choices, she had two gun with silencers and ammo as well as a sword, Beth had also strapped a dagger to her thigh for sneak assassinating, "I'm well aware we will have to use them, the guards will be expecting us."
*3 days later*
Beth looked to the sky where Vi circled, "Go ahead and stay out of sight, they know you're the only raven out here."
She looked back at the pair standing with her, "I suggest we raid the belongings of the guards after we kill them. We will need different clothes and perhaps we should stop at the next water source and bathe. If we travel through the cities looking like we do now the guards will know for sure who we are. Take nothing to personal from them though, basic clothes and ammo, anything to carry supplies in that wont stick out, and Winter, once we're among people you'll need to stay in dog form." Beth closed her eyes and thought back to the vague years of childhood trying to make sure she would fit int society during their travels.

He nods, and moves forward. "shouldn't be to tough. Kill the guards steal the clothes. I'll snipe then off but I need a distraction to draw them out into the open...like a giant pair of wings.....Admeta. You stay here. A battle is no place for a healer. especially someone like you." He found a decent vantage point and waited for Beth to move forward and act as bait. The plan worked Beth shot the first guard who had tried to grab her by the neck and Winter took out a sniper sitting in a small Guard tower. The two final guards turned and fled. Winter shot on in the head and the other escaped on foot. "DON'T LET HIM GET AWAY!" Winter turned into his dog form and chased after the escaped guard, but returned empty handed.

It had been over an hour now and they had gather up as many supplies as they could before returning to the place they left Admeta and Vi. But they weren't there. Frantic they began searching for the two before finding Vi under a bush. Her wing had been broken, but and she was cawing weakly. They had been attacked Winter howled furiously and ran off to search for their attacker. Beth found him an hour later alone holding a small pack filled with healing herbs. "this was hers" he said. " I WILL KILL THEM FOR THIS!" Beth put her arm around Winter and pulled him away. They had lost to much time and if there were going to find out what happened to her they had to move. They patched Vi up with Admeda's herbs who began to flutter weakly. It would take some time before she was back at full strength. They left the forest, Beth disguised in the guards clothes, Winter as a dog, and Vi tucked comfortably in Beth's Pack. They were headed to Bowtrip City.

Beth flew over the wall of the compound and look around shocked, she was free. The tree line thinned almost immediately and she could see the the capitol city looming over the trees only a few miles away. Winter stood beside her silently, though probably more from inner turmoil then the feeling of freedom. Beth strode forward a little ways away from the wall, she was aware of Winter following her and was glad he seemed to be letting her have her moment. She kept walking for what seemed like an hour without paying attention to wear. Looking up Beth saw that she was much closer the the city now and stopped.
She shook her head and looked at Winter, "I'm going to try to find a stream or something so we can get cleaned up." she glanced at the ground as her euphoria was swept away, "We'll find Admeta." Beth turned awkwardly and strode into the wood a direction she hadn't been yet, within twenty minutes she found small brook. The water was cold against Beth's skin, but it felt nice. She couldn't remember a time she felt clean, but now they had soap. The raiding of the guards had proven a good decision.
Beth marveled at herself after she had dressed once more. The unnaturals didn't get soap in Groveelm, so while they took showers, they were never really clean, so Beth had never imagined she could feel this way. Her skin seemed even paler than before, but it seemed to glow with health as well. Her short hair had been cleaned as well with conditioner and shampoo, Beth had never felt so pretty. She wondered if any of the enforcers would recognize her like this, new clothes and clean. Beth smiled at the thought of the enforcers not knowing who she was.
Beth headed back to the place she had left Winter and found him still sitting there, "There's a brook a little ways away, you can go clean up now."

He had been chewing his fur and licking it clean, attempting to groom himself his own way when Beth returned. She had pointed out a brook, but it had taken some debate. wishful thinking. and finally force before he entered the water. He returned some time later reeking of wet dog smell, walked next to Beth and shook himself dry. Their rest was short lived as they had to start moving. surely the surviving guard would have gotten help by now. And they would be hunted down soon.

They moved for almost day before the forest began to clear and it became to difficult for Winter to move upright. Should he get spotted he would give them away immediately, so he was forced into dog form. He carried what he could, but in this form he was only able to carry a small pack on his back. He still carried Admeta's pack in his mouth, and Beth was forced to carry the bulk of the provisions and weapons.

It was getting late when they stumbled upon a small cottage, which looked as if it could be a small farm. Outside a father played with his son, while the mother contently watched. Both of them remained low, a good distance away so as not to be spotted by the family. "looks like a nice place to stop and rest for the night." Winter said. He then turned to Beth and with a cold voice said "give me my bow."

"No." Beth said with a stern tone, "They haven't done anything." Beth glared at Winter, "That is a child, he's not even been in school two years I bet."
Beth looked at the boy who was now staring in their direction, "Mommy, Daddy there's people in the woods."
The parent's looked at each other then at their son, "What type of people honey?" The mother asked warily.
"An angel and a werewolf, they need a place to stay." Suddenly the boy's face lit up, "They're the ones that I i heard people thinking about today! The escaped the forest! Mommy, Daddy, they're like me!"
The parents exchanged a long look, "Well Trevor, go say hi and bring them over."
Beth shot a sidelong glance at Winter the message was clear, Do not lay a hand on this child unless we have to.
"It's ok Mommy and Daddy are ok with us, we live out here cause they don't want me stolen away." Trevor walked staight at the hiding pair, "We won't hurt you." Trevor smiled at the pair when he was in front of them, Another telepathic... Beth thought to herself, "Yep!" was all Trevor replied.

Trevor and Beth seemed to get along very quickly, as Trevor led them to his parents house. Trevor at first seemed o fear Winter, but eventually gave him a warm smile. Winter remained quiet throughout, but Trevor continued to give him smiles and stared at him. This sent shiver down Winter's spine and he continued following Beth's lead. When they made it to the cottage they were offered warm meal and a place to stay. As Beth spoke with the two parents, Trevor thought it would be funny to jump on Winter's back and pretend he was riding a horse. It was not.

Finally it was lights out, Beth was offered a couch and Winter decided to lie on the floor directly under where Beth was sleeping. He used Admeta's pack as a pillow and quickly found a position he where he was comfortable. There were times during the night where he wasn't sure if Beth was petting him of if her hand just fell off the side of the couch. He didn't mind either way it made him feel comfortable. It was a safe place to stay, and for once, curled up under Beth, Winter was able to sleep soundly.

Beth woke with a start, she looked about the room she was in, not quite able to remember why she was there. After a minute or so passed she remembered, she and Winter had escaped. Standing and going into a seperate room, a kitchen, Beth found Trevor's parents leaning against the counter and watching the sun rise.
The mother noticed and and gave her a warm smile, "Good morning Beth. Would you like some coffee?" She motioned to the beverage in her hand."
"What does it taste like?" Beth asked, the mother gave her a strange look so she added, "I've never had it."
"Here try a sip of mine." The mother handed Beth the pleasantly warm mug.
Beth smiled as she tasted the coffee, she couldn't describe the flavor of it with any word but perfection, "This is Delicious! I would love some." The mother laughed and got another mug out, She poured a dark brown liquid in first, followed by a white liquid, then something Beth recognized as sugar. She sat quietly with the parents and drank two cups before she heard Winter walking into the kitchen.

He woke up to find everyone in the kitchen save for Trevor who was still sleeping. curious he walked into the kitchen to find them drinking a brown mud like substance. Beth offered him some of hers...the taste made him shudder. Instead he paced around the room anxious to get moving. He didn't like being in an unfamiliar setting for long. He prodded at Beth enthusiastically, but she refused to move until she finished. When she finally did, they packed up and got ready to leave. It was still early so Trevor was still asleep. and right before he left he poked his head into Trevor's room, licked his face, and went on his way. Seconds before he walked out the door he managed to stuff a few biscuits in his mouth.

They moved onward, Admeta's pack was now on Winter's back and he Trotted beside Beth happily. Vi was now strong enough to fly again, and with a little over a days walk they would be at Bowtrip City. Of course assuming they didn't run into any more difficulties. They path they followed was long and boring. Not much to see save for hilly plains, and their destination over the horizon. It was about Mid-day before Winter stopped the party. "we're being followed."
