{H E I G H T} 2’4”

{W E I G H T} 15-20lbs

{E Y E C O L O R} Brown

{H A I R C O L O R} Feathers are mostly brown with some white on his belly and the tops of his wings

{A P P E A R A N C E}
He appears to be the average hawk, only a very LARGE version of said beast. There is a small anklet around his ankle made of beads and a small bit of metal with his name carved into it.

{O D D I T I E S} There are scars on his belly and a scar over his eye.

{H I S T O R Y}
Aura was traveling through her homeland two years prior when she found a very large wounded hawk near her village. It was in bad shape but she healed it and kept it safe until it was well enough to fly off. Though at first it refused food and was distrustful of her, eventually it began to trust her and even slept nearby her at night.

When finally a month had passed and he was well again, she expected him to fly off as she continued her journey, and instead he followed her. Since then they have been good friends, and travel together often. He does fly off to hunt, and when she sends him on an errand of sort.

So begins...

Rylen glared at Aura as she lectured him about how they both need to go, his fist clinching in tightly, bottling up his anger, and annoyance. His mark began acting up before he calmed down. "Fine, but you will do what I say, when I say it. Or else I will gag you, and carry you over my shoulders like luggage." Rylen stated, and he'd do it to, as he has proven. "And do not order me around. I know these lands better than anyone, all Vanguards do." He stated. Indeed, he has traveled all over this country, as have others of his rank.

Rylen followed behind Aura as she lead him out of the library, and out to the courtyard. The monks were no longer there training outside. A pity, Rylen wanted to observe their training techniques more closely. He stopped for a moment, and scanned the area. He has developed, like most Silver Guards, a sort of six sense for trouble. They learn to trust, and rely on their instincts. He noticed on the ground a shadow of something coming towards him. Rylen quickly side stepped out of the way before he could be dive-bombed by a rather large hawk.

Rylen began to reach for his blade before remembering he swore not to draw his blade. Though he was brought at ease when he learned the hawk, this Xerxes was a campanion of Aura's. Rylen, and Xerxes stared into each others eyes quite fiercely, almost completely ignoring what Aura was saying. Rylen held out his arm, and gave a extremely bird-like whistle, one would probably think it was from a bird if they didn't see him do it. Xerxes raised it's wings, and leaped over to Rylen's arm. Rylen rubbed him affectionately on his chin, with a noticable smile on his face.

"A handsome, and noble specimen indeed." Rylen stated as he continued to show him affection. "The Silver Guard use hawks as messangers, when I am at the fort my unit is assigned to I often spend time in the rookery. That, and the kenel for the war hounds. Though our messangers aren't as large as you. They are meant for speed, and not strength. Though I'm sure you are fast as well." Rylen stated to Xerxes, almost completely forgetting about Aura. "I bet we could hunt several rabbits for a nice stew. Would you like that? Some fresh rabbit meat? It'd probably taste better than rats, and mice. Too bad I don't have Rosco with me, he's my favorite war hound. We'd hunt deer, and rabbits, and such. We once fought a bear."

Aura knew her pet- no, Xerxes would never be a pet, he was in fact her best friend. Aura didn't keep many friends in this life, and what few she did she kept close. This bird was such a creature, and it had kept her company through many a stressful journey. And now he was sitting on some one else's arm. Not only that but someone who just hours ago was attempting to kill her.

She knew she had no right to be jealous of the two of them. Bonding would be important in the future between the two of them, and all she could do was stand there and watch them carefully...

"He's a beast, but he's the most gentlest of all," she approached carefully, reaching up to stroking his neck affectionately. The large bird nipped her finger, and he chirped, puffing he chest up proudly at the compliments he was receiving. Soon enough he stretched his wings and flew away, stretching and soaring through the air. "He's as fast as I've ever seen, especialy when he's ready to fight. Those talons can do some damage."

There was a soft smile on her face. "Come, let us eat... He's probably off to patrol by the air," she told him and sighed starting to head back in the direction they were going before the interruption.
