Salix

"Go on, I'm listening."

0 · 387 views · located in The Lithium Forest in Isiria

a character in “Blood and Brittle Bones”, as played by Marzipan

Description

Image
Name: Salix
Gender: Male
Age: Three
Rank: Scout

Appearance: Long ginger fur with splatters of color all over his pelt. Black on the nape of his neck and covering his snout, with a streak on his long furry tail. White and creams cover the rest of his face and cover his paws like socks. His eyes are a light pale green with flecks of gold. His stature is light and nimble with large ears he uses to listen to the silence. He is a midget compared to the stature of other wolves in the pack.
Personality: Attentive, Great Sense of Humor, Playful, Easily Impressed, Easily Startled

Mother: Passed on
Father: Passed on
Brothers: None
Sisters: 1, Passed on

Mate: None
Crush: None
Pups: None

Strength: He has large ears with enables him to hear the slightest of noises. They assume he is hollow-boned by how light he is and it gives him an advantage in sprinting. He can easily evade danger by his speed.
Weakness: He's very light and more of a fast paced wolf. He isn't built for fighting so if he was scouting and gotten ambushed, there is a possibility that he won't survive. Injuries take double the toll on his small body.

(PS- He isn't a main character so if he does pop up, he'd be included with Lifesimmer or Lichen. A good friend to all.)

"Lih-chen. That's how you say it.
Not Lie-ken. I am not a fungi."


Sitting by the entrance was a bulky male. His reddish brown trained on his surroundings, making sure the pack was safe from immediate dangers. It was his job to make sure nothing got past him. They had young to feed and wolves to protect. However, his gaze was not hard and penetrable. It was soft and sweet. How is it that this large strong wolf get ranked as a sentry? The skin beneath his short tinted pelt was gashed with scars unimaginable. He dealt with more than just the annoyance of deceptive foxes and cowardly coyotes. His skin was tough and hard. Perfect for battle since his injuries did nothing more than feel like a bloody scratch. He was not a fighter though, he refused. He was too much of a softy to hurt another wolf. Even if it was an enemy. Second best rank he could be fitted into was a sentry. Originally, Lichen wanted to be a caretaker, but his gifts cursed him. He was too rough for his own good and didn't acquire the gentleness and skill needed to be a caretaker. So there he sat, watching and waiting for something to ambush him. The ginger wolf didn't mind being a sentry, since in a way he was helping his fellow pack mates by keeping them safe on his own accord.

His eyes wandered as the chilled breeze buffeted his fur. He shuttered. The forest was unnaturally silent and that unsettled him. The crinkle of the leaves snapped him to attention. The short, stubby fur on his neck bristled and he slowly assumed the crouching position. Teeth automatically bared at the direction the sound came in. Pressure settled in his ears as blood started to pump faster from his beating heart. He could feel it thudding against his chest. Once he took in the scent, his haunches relaxed and he plopped back down on his hide. It was just the morning patrol. The throaty growl that threatened to come lose was swallowed and he wagged his long curled tail. He didn't bother asking the Beta what went on in the forest of Isiria. He would hear from the scouts soon enough, especially from Salix. Rumors traveled fast in this pack with Salix's informative gossip. Speaking of Salix, he trotted past him with a mischievous look on his face. Lichen snorted as Salix whacked him in the muzzle with his long fluffy tail and he growled at him. "Why so serious?" He asks as he slips through the entrance. "It's my job to be serious." He responds though Salix was already gone.

"Just call me Sim."


Amber eyes blinked beneath the shrubs where a she-wolf had nestled in. The mottled pelt shifted behind her shade and the wolf let out a long, shivering yawn. The she-wolf stretched her legs and dug into the ground with her nimble paws. Lifesimmer wanted to sleep more than anything, but she knew of the work she had to do. She nosed the leaves out of her vision as she slowly crept from her sleeping place. The shrub occupied the corner of a clearing which the pack claimed as the heart of their territory. The camp now had wolves seeping in from the entrance. The she-wolf pushed herself onto all fours and watched them with weary eyes. Giving her pelt a shake, she wondered if she had slept in. Assuming that the Beta was back with a mouthful of companions in her ranking, she had. The morning patrol took their places and started to socialize as Asher trotted over to the Alpha. It was the Beta's duty to report in to the Alpha, even if there was nothing that took place in the premises.

Her amber hues studied the grounds, and her sights caught young Thorn resting by her lonesome. The she-wolf decided to gather up the courage to approach the fighter, padding over with her ears pricked. Lifesimmer stopped a tail length away and let out a muffled woof to get her attention. "Pardon," She breathes light and quick. "Have I missed the morning patrol?" What an obvious question she spurted out! The absurdity of her question made her nervous. The little stub, where her tail should be, stiffened. She wasn't used to talking to many of her peers, mainly because she was branded as an outcast because of her father. For some odd reason, the Alpha decided that Lifesimmer would be great use to her pack and took her in. Still, not every wolf agreed with her decision. She was pleasantly surprised when she was ranked as a scout instead of a lowly omega. Lifesimmer was determined to prove to them all that she was worthy to be here. So far, first impressions weren't exactly her department. The she-wolf listened attentively as Thorn prepared to speak, shivering with anticipation. If she had indeed missed morning patrol, she would take it as her duty to monitor the area anyway. Who knows what could be lurking out there with fewer wolves on the scene. The only wolf she could trust to be with her on this mission was Lichen, the sentry. Unless someone else wanted to come with them. She doubted it though, the majority of the pack recently came back from the forest and were probably hesitant of going back out there.

The Alpha female turned her head and smiled at Asher, her fluffed tail neatly beside her and her head held high as she sat. "I miss all of you when you leave." she noted truthfully, he pale red eyes sparkled. "I worry too much, but I guess I should have known this role in life would come with a price. There are some advantages to it I suppose."
The white wolf stood, holding her gaze on the male Beta, searching for the question she was originally going to ask him, but had forgotten. "Ah," she remembered, "was anything sighted during your patrol at all?"



OOC: I made an itty bitty post ha ha.

"Just call me Sim."


"Yes." Thorn's name fit the tone she set towards her. The gray she-wolf avoided Simmer's gaze with a hard glance towards the lumbering trees. Her quieted, throaty growl set her off and she wanted to dart beneath the undergrowth and hibernate for the rest of her life. However, she did not show it. Her mind surged with unsettlement and the stub of a tail slumped. It was the only part of her body she could show her feelings through gestures and no one would notice. Who would want to stare at her rump the whole time? Yet something about her hues revealed a hidden emotion. Simmer couldn't help but watch her silently, studying the signs waiting to be interpreted. For a split second, Thorn caught her gaze. Embarrassed, Lifesimmer darted her amber hues toward the bounding pup that was approaching them.

When she returned her eyes upon Thorn, her tail thudded the ground revealing an inward smile. Her inquiry left her fur standing on end with sheepishness. "O-oh, no way. I just slept in, I swear." She stammered, words falling from her muzzle in jumbled text. The question was absurd. Males always went for the females with the fluffiest tails. She was out of the question. Orion bustled into the conversation just as her fur became hot and bashful. "I..." She yapped awkwardly. Her tongue twisted and she found herself lost in her words. She ducked her head and avoided their piercing eyes. Her ears facing backwards. Thorn could answer this for her. She didn't want to admit to the young pup that she slept in. In fact, she wanted to keep it to herself but talking to another wolf pressured her to giving them reason for her absence.

Lacy
“Running, you should know, is a kind of stillness.” ― Tiphanie Yanique
Image

The bright fire was slowly fading behind her, as was the victory cries of the humans and last whimpers of her family. Soon the only sound that filled the dark forest was the thumps of her paws onto the ground and the soft exhales and inhales of breath. Cold gusts of wind fought against Lacy, threatening her to slow down, but she ignored it, she ignored the burning of her lungs as she pushed the freezing air in and out, and the numbness of her paws as she pushed herself to get further and further away, as she tired to escape her appending doom. It would be so easy to stop now, to give up and let death come and collect her, but she had always been a fighter, she had never been one to give in. The she-wolf would never understand why it was her who had lived and not one of her siblings, after all, she was the smallest of her family, she would have been the easiest to pick off, the only thing she had going for her was her speed, and even that was less when it came down to a battle. Then again, it was her speed that had saved her.

The night wore on, and as she traveled up, over the mountain, the air cold colder and the winds whispered louder, soft snow was falling slowly, unlike in the valley below. The tall, dead trees cracked and twigs snapped beneath her, and yet, she only stopped once. She stopped at the peak of the mountain so she could turn around and look down at the valley that used to be her home. She could see the fire that was engulfing the dead trees, it was slowly spreading, through it would stop soon, it was clear it had been man made. Other animals were running away, fleeing from death. She lifted her head, and let out a heart broken howl. It priced through the air and echoed off the the mountain and down to the burning valley, and the darker, untouched valley. Lacy turned then, and started to run again. She didn't stop again after that, not with the picture of her home burning branded into her mind.

Soon the mountain started to tilt downward and she knew she was coming closer and closer to the other Tribe of wolves. Her mother had heard mere rumors about the other wolves, since not many of her own tribe had liked to travel over the mountain, she knew now, by the scents that burned her nose, the rumors had been true. This tribe, The Tribe of the Fallen, was one of the biggest tribes in this area. If she could, she would warn the Alpha of this tribe, explain what had happened, how ruthless the humans had been, and how they might be next, and then she would move on to warn others. Lacy no longer had a family of her own, the least she could do was help protect other family's from the same loss.

She pushed down the swelling emotions, the pain, and pushed her legs to move faster. She strained her ears and nose, trying to hear if any of the wolves were near by, trying to figure out how old these scents were. As far as she could tell, they were at least seventy-four hours old, most likely, they had belonged to a hunting party, they were most likely trying to pack as much food up for the rest of the pack before winter hit them as hard as it had hit the mountains. The snow was still caught up in her fur from when she had been higher in the mountains, and most likely it wouldn't melt out completely until the sun rose. Lacy kept going through, ignoring the new cold as she traveled blindly through the forest. She didn't start to slow down until she came across newer scents. The she-wolf soon slowed down to a light jog, and let out a softer howl than before, through she still winced at how horrible it sounded, like she was a dying animal calling for help. She was certain that the tribe would hear the unfamiliar howl and come to investigate.

Ghost could tell Asher had slightly been stung by her lack of interest, but she reminded herself it had been that way for a long time, she could also tell that he had been slowly giving up on her. Although it ached her heart, she knew it was better this way. Besides, he was still someone she could trust and rely on, and an important asset to the pack. It's not that I don't want to have a mate to rule beside me, but I must put the whole pack first before anything. Their sake and wellbeing is my responsibility. She sighed, watching her pack through wary eyes. A light breeze made the snowy hair along her spine stand slightly and she lifted herself, showing dominance, as she embraced the thin wind. Her head and tail held high, she walked through their home, greeting everyone with a smile. She would have to call everyone together eventually to discuss the seasons changes, especially with winter just a few moons away. During the brittle season of winter, the small prey would tuck themselves warmly into their burrows, and the much larger prey would travel outside of the forest, beyond the mountains. She had been thinking that soon it would be time to face some changes to accommodate with this time of year, especially since last winter season nearly half the pack had been wiped out.
Looking up at the sky, she saw the sun was pale and a cloud had crossed over it, signaling the beginning of Autumn. The air will be colder, and the leaves will start to fall, telling the prey to start heading away. We must discuss soon... I will call a gathering before next moon. She had been thinking of ideas that they could use to survive the harsh times, but had only come up with one, and it was too soon to be worrying the pack with such drastic measures just yet.

"Lih-chen. That's how you say it.
Not Lie-ken. I am not a fungi."


Lichen cursed at himself as the she-wolf darted. The very last thing that he wanted to happen. Her long legs aided her as she disappeared into the forest. He knew better than to slump his head and drag himself home, so he bounded after her. He realized that the howl not only got rid of her but also stirred up a strong fear scent for him to follow. This gave him a sense of relief that she wasn't lost from him forever, just temporarily. Eventually, the she wolf would get tired and find a place to rest. At this very thought, Lichen paced himself. However, he kept up the fast stride.

Something pricked him with a odd feeling as he ran. He had passed many familiar shrubs, trees, and marks as he followed her fear scent. Only as his reddish-brown eyes laid upon the entrance to his camp had he realized that she was running in the right direction in the first place. He didn't even need to run. He squeezed into the small entrance, his large paws digging into the dirt to hull his huge body in. He was greeted with the Alpha's ringing howl.

At first, he was disoriented, however he recollected himself. He glanced around the clearing with pricked up, alert ears and his long tail stiff. Salix trotted up to him but Lichen didn't pay him any attention. "Hey, What's the matter?" He barked, his fluffy tail swishing behind him. Lichen let out a faint whine. "I'll tell you later." Salix lowered his tail and he sniffed Lichen. "You smell different. I can't tell why..." Before the ginger wolf could respond, Asher and three other wolves trotted into camp. Lichen's eyes rested on the wolf in the middle of LifeSimmer and Thorn. There was a new she-wolf, her unfamiliar scent tinted with soot. The Alpha merely glanced at the new wolf as Asher took a moment to hobble over to her and explain what was going on. Her news was obviously the first burden she wanted to rid herself of.

The grave news sunk in after she closed her mouth. There was enough silence to hear the uneasy wolves whisper briskly to their neighbors. Salix nosed Lichen, worry flowing off his small body. Lichen nodded. This was indeed something he didn't want to hear. Especially since he was already stressed with finding his fugitive.

Thorn



"Everyone, I know it has only begun to be Autumn, but it is with great thought that I bring up an important decision."
Ghost waited until what she opened with caught on to everyone's attention.
"As we all know, the winter season is not far off, just some moons from now. The prey will travel outside of our border lines, and into the mountains, and travel past until the spring seasons arrive and they return with their young. Last winter we lost a large number of our pack members to the bitter old and starvation from the lack of prey left within the woods, especially the larger ones.
"I know that this may be difficult for you to digest for now, but I have felt the best thing was for me to bring this to your attention. Our best bet for survival... is to go beyond the mountains, into the unknown."
Thorn growled, feeling uneasy. Beyond the mountains, and not exactly close to her birth-den but near enough to her former territory to make her nervous. The gray she-wolf paced, her mind going crazy with the information. Instincts to do as her Alpha commanded, and the independent side of her telling her to run and leave their pack to survive on their own.

Thorn mentally snarled at herself for thinking so selfishly. She trotted over to where Asher was lying, her gaze on Lacy and the deer leg. Her face showing nothing as she sat, watching the stranger. Thorn was observing, and had no doubt that Lacy knew she was being categorized in Thorn's mind. Without showing anything, the gray wolf loped away again, finding herself sitting next to Lichen and Salix.

Thorn's gaxe flitted from Lichen's face to Salix, her gaze calm but respectful by not staring directly into their face which would mean she was issuing a challenge or that she was higher in rank. She was not higher in rank, nor was she trying to fight them, so she woofed at them, her ears pricked as she listened in on the conversations going on around her. Of course the news brought some unease in the pack. Most of them had been born in this valley and had never ventured beyond the mountains, nor were there many wolves that came from beyond the mountains and joined the Fallen pack. Thorn glanced at their Drappa, or Alpha female, Ghost, and couldn't help but wonder why she, herself, had never really tried to befriend Ghost or associate herself as a close pack-mate of the white she-wolf. Thorn then remembered that she preferred to not be noticed a lot by her superiors or her inferiors. She liked to just be an easy face to forget or a vague face among the pack.

|| Beta | Male ||
Golden eyes narrowed on Thorn as she approached the dusky male, coming to sit and watch the stranger. Before Asher could growl a warning for her to give the she-wolf space the gray wolf was already up and trotting away. It was after this that he felt red eyes on his pelt, a voice speaking to him directly. With shaky legs he stood as Ghost spoke. "Is there any input you would like to add to this?" The beta nodded slowly, trotting to the center of the pack, coming to stand beside his alpha.

"The pack is dying," Asher started darkly. "We have lost many brave warriors, excellent hunters, and many other treasured pack members to the harsh winter. The elk are smarter than we think, each season they leave to warmer lands. When they leave we suffer, if we are to survive this winter, we must follow them." Asher's eyes moved from one pack mate to the next, reading their reactions."The only problem we face are the shadows in the mountains. Our enemies lie in wait for us. But its not just them we must worry about anymore, humans have supposedly destroyed one of our neighbors packs. They won't stop there and will soon invade our homes. If we are to fight them out of our territory we must be strong. Which means food during winter. I see only one choice and its to follow the elk."

"Just call me Sim."


Asher dismissed Simmer from her post with a simple gesture. She had the perfect chance to talk to him about her strategy but something held her back. Her absurd paranoiac senses told her that the beta would lash at her for conjuring up such a incongruous scheme. Instead, she watched the beta trot around about his business with an anxious gaze. Her body rippling with need to confront him or the Alpha herself. However, the alpha's title shied her away from the very thought. What would her packmates say if she were to speak to the alpha? 'The little snob. She thinks she's part of the hierarchy, she does.' Simmer's claws unsheathed into the earth. 'The outcast doesn't belong here. She doesn't deserve to be here. The bitch.' Simmer's nubby tail would have tucked under her rump if it could.

"Are there any who object?" The Alpha scanned the area with her intimidating red eyes. Simmer lowered her amber gaze. She did not object to the idea, however she stuck to the proposal she was determined to reveal. Agitation gnawed at her chest and she bared her soft neck just as Asher did to talk to the Alpha before. "I do not object. I agree with your plan." A lump settled in her throat as her scratchy voice continued to bark, "But how will we know if we are not being ambushed? It isn't safe to simply sneak through the woods and into the mountains... If you don't mind me suggesting... What if the scouts could scour the premises. To prove that what information we have received is valid and not an attack?"

"Just call me Sim."


Relief. The stress that had pinned down on her throat vanished and she could breath. At first, she felt the leader's eyes scathe her for speaking out, however her words did not follow up on her expression. Ghost raised her muzzle in the air in form of authority, continuing her announcement. The sense of relief she had felt was short-lived as Simmer's amber hues wandered around the pack. Each one of them revealed fear, resentment. All, but a few that is. She wasn't the only one staring at the other wolves. Once her eyes fell upon Beta Asher, he caught her; returning a hard, intense gaze as if he was studying her perturbed visage. Simmer, once sitting, lifted herself and quietly maneuvered through the thicket of wolves to assume the space next to Lichen and Salix. Salix greeted her with a wag of his long tail while Lichen remained silently unsettled.

"What's that smell coming off you? It reeks." Simmer jokes quietly, nudging Lichen with her wet nose. Lichen doesn't respond, instead he lets out a stifled sigh. Salix intently shakes his head and lowers. Simmer is quick to understand, leaving Lichen in his bubble. He had something on his mind and it strained him. It was best to leave him to himself. He liked it to be quiet while thinking. Simmer spaced out for a moment, her thoughts rambling over nonsense before a strange scent tickles her nose. Salix's ears perk up to the scent as well and Simmer follows his gaze to the entrance. There was another stranger nearby. Where? Simmer didn't know, all the wolves cloaked the stranger from her view. She warned Salix with a simple gesture to not alarm the camp while the Alpha was speaking. It would only arouse the camp's anxiety and alert the stranger to evade.

Image The beta male stared at Simmer intently, taking her words into consideration. He couldn't deny that her words held some truth, though a red flag had been raised when she had spoke up. Asher hadn't know she had so much back bone, it was impressive of a wolf of her rank. The beta male dipped his head slightly as she went to stand with Lichen and Salix, eyes following her across the camp, even as she spoke to Lichen.

Asher's ears flicked forward, eyes flicking to Ghost. He had said what was needed and wouldn't be required in her decision making process unless the alpha specifically asked. Before he knew what was happening his paws were moving across the ground in an easy trod over to Simmer, lowering his tail and pinning his ears back as he approached the three, his behavior unusual for the usually solitary ash colored male. Asher nosed Simmer's side as he came to circle and sit down between her and Salix. "Thank you for speaking at Ghost's meeting." Asher said softly to her. "I was wondering though if you would want to come hunting with Orion and I at dusk?"

"Just call me Sim."


Simmer's bond to her concentration was strong. When Asher nudged her, she almost nipped him in shock. "Thank you for speaking at Ghost's meeting." Asher speaks, "I was wondering though if you would want to come hunting with Orion and I at dusk?" The skin above her eyes raised in question as her ears shifted back in submission. "I was only doing my duty as a scout." She responds slowly, her amber hues catching sight of Thorn trotting over to them. Salix kept his alert position. His tiny body stiff as stone. Simmer huffed a breath at Salix and he stood up. By the scent he gave off, he was going to investigate.

"You should go with him, but I think I might have to pull Orion out of your hunt, Asher. I promised to teach her something important later. Would that be okay, Beta?" Thorn adds to Asher's offer as she assumed position on the other side of Simmer. Lichen, whom had been resting beside Simmer, got up and lumbered away. Simmer felt sorry for Lichen, perhaps she would catch him something to appease the cross wolf. Brought back to reality, Simmer lowers her head and woofs, "Why not?"

Image "Pull Orion from the hunt?" The Beta asked in mild confusion, his eyes searching the clearing, settling on the young she-wolf he had sired. Orion was blissfully laying in the sun with her grandmother, obliviously to the conversation the adult wolves were having. Asher's golden eyes flicked back to Thorn, finding the she-wolf staring at the ground. "I see no harm in that, as long as she is returned to camp before the moon rises." The wary father said with a small sigh. His large black ears flicked to the side as he awaited Simmer's answer.

Image

"Why not?" The pretty wolf woofed at Asher, causing his tail to wag as he stood, ignoring the pain in his leg as he waggled his hindquarters playfully. Bowing to the she-wolf he yapped softly, bouncing away, banner waving as he bounded a few feet away before making his way back around, nipping at her shoulder.
