0 · 430 views · located in Nigerius

a character in “Elemental Battles: Rage Ch. II: Fire”, as played by luft



Name: Zrani Dukhn “Duke”

Pack: Avira pack + Aven pack (half-breed)

Gender: male

[list]73cm or 28.7inches
147cm or 57.8 inches
57kg or 127 pounds

Description: Zrani has large wings that are both sturdy and strong and allow him to fly and gain momentum really fast, when they are folded they give the illusion that tree branches are growing from his sides do to their color and designs.
Duke is very fast while flying and very nimble although not too much on the ground he maintains his speed and strength. His body is very light thanks to his mixed blood but at the same time he is not very resilient and much to his own displeasure he lacks the natural endurance of his Avira heritage. Zrani´s teeth and jaw are strong enough to hold pry while flying even if his fangs and claws are below average. His fur is golden brown with patches of burgundy, yellow and vivid green located on his paws, tail and neck. The feathers of his large wings go from white to yellow with red endings on the inside and completely brown on the outside. Duke´s eyes are a silvery white color matching the flowing markings on his fur. There are several plantlike formations protruding from his body. Forming leaves on the outside arc of his wings, climbing plants or lianas intertwining with his long tail and a white flower on the end of his braided beard


Personality: He is a social wolf giving of an air of stoicism with a personality that is defined by a strong need to prove himself, a imperative curiosity and a deep anger with specific triggers. He appeases all this by trying to emulate the intellectual and calm demeanor of the clan he grew up in.
He is an artist like his father and has a natural appreciation for life in all its forms, which sometimes translates in a pacifist mindset that he hates, forcing himself to be active and participate in solving conflicts. Zrani has a great sense of empathy and cares for the health of those around him

Abilities: His Avira connection to the sky is not as strong as a full blood would be but thanks to his intense practice and the strength in his wings he still is able to produce wind blasts that impact with enough force to knock some wolves around. This more so with the momentum he can achieve when flying, using this impulse, especially when he reaches his maximum velocity, enhances his Air skills. Duke is an avid healer with a self taught grasp on the healing properties of plants, this combined with his ability to mildly control the lianas entwined on his tail denotes a more developed Aven pack set of skills.
Concentrating on a clear mind and using great amounts of energy he can use his own breath to heal non fatal wounds with a varied success.

Equipment: He carries a pouch usually with herbs and medicinal plants, books, something to draw or paint and also his Okinawan kusarigama, a gift from Rovy, which he uses spar with him.


the chain is actually 40 inches long but this one was cool

likes: finding new and interesting places to explore, challenging himself, pretending to be wise, helping others especially with their health and drawing painting

Dislikes: Has a fear of storms especially while flying, unnecessary death, feeling weak or useless, people who doesn´t take action when they can, drinking

History: Throughout his early life Duke and those around him had always made him , unintentionally or not, feel conflicted, inadequate and worse weak, his rare breed half Avira half Aven made him stand out in the Avira pack but according to Zrani, for all the wrong reasons, although his big sturdy wings developed early enough, no matter all the training and practice he put himself through, his connection to the sky and its wind currents was lackluster. Even living in the floating mountains, sometimes he didn´t feel as free as the other members of the pack, the raging winds and powerful cyclones always scared and intimidated him. In stark contrast to this his connection to nature, his healing abilities and even his appearance showed his Aven blood, a part of himself, that triggered a great anger inside of him since it brought thoughts of his mother, a powerful healer that apparently without a reason abandoned him and his twin brother to the care of their father, an Avira sentinel who struggled to raise the twins but ultimately, was unable to protect them during a conflict between the Borak pack and his, leaving Zrani seriously wounded and both his father and brother dead.
His coming to adulthood saw him growing more and more curious about the state of Nigerius and what may lay below the endless sky of Era. His temperament slowly changed developing a façade emulating the passive intellectual attitude of his pack but inside he blamed for not been able to save his family. Turning this guilt into a determination to prove himself and giving him a short fuse in regards to independency and weakness but this determination also landed him on a more social route adopting his father job in the pack and becoming a sentinel himself. Was working on this job that he spotted, during a rogue mercenary attack, a young Strigoi female observing the fight with a river of blood circling around her.
In the middle of this mercenary attack Zrani save the life of a Hemlock male named Kroviye and after this one returning the favor in a similar fashion they started forming a friendship. Almost half a year later would place them traveling through the vast and hostile Nigerius. Doing odd job, mercenary work and helping when their help was accepted.

Tl;dr: Zrani is an emphatic, calm halfbreed wolf with some anger issues, who lost his family and now is traveling with a friend to see the world and maybe help...

So begins...

After again falling into another muddy pool of marsh water Kroviye´s mood was completely spoiled and since it was Duke´s fault they were in a marsh without any sort of clue as to where the next village was, he decided to cheer himself up by picking on his friend´s uncanny ability to get them lost "Have I tell you today how enjoyable it is for me to follow you into this shortcuts only to end up drench from paw to tail or even better covered in leeches" as if on cue he felt a small prick on his left hind paw, "sorry buddy I´m the only one drinking blood today" ripping the leech with his fang and swallowing it whole, allowing some warm into his body through the small creature´s blood "Hey maybe this isn’t´t so bad, after all you didn´t guide us into a highway wolves infested cave like last time" sensing the slight change in the other wolf demeanor Kroviye let out a thundering laugh "Oh Duke, Dukerion, little Dunkey ahahahaha don´t be mad it wasn´t so bad remember, as for bandits go they were weirdly welcoming and if it wasn´t for the whole tying us and taking all our food the whole event would have been lovely, besides we got to try your new Kusarigama and I got a new scar to add to the collection so fun for everyone".

It was like a change in the air whenever his friend´s mood changed you could feel it in the plants growing from his body and in the air flowing through his wings, Duke was getting angry and to Kroviye this was the best as it meant that soon their blades would be clashing and Duke´s methodical and calculated fighting style would disappear and Kroviye would enjoy something resembling a challenge, nothing better to lift his spirits; He just needed to make one more little push...

Zrani "Duke"

Zrani felt really good this mourning they were having great luck with the road and it wouldn´t be long until they stumbled upon some village, taking into account that the Arlyne weren´t aggressive towards other wolves, "especially if you come into their villages with a mind to aid or at least without your weapons drawn and screaming to them to deliver all their liqueur" he though while giving a sideways glance to his traveling companion and just by chance he got the distinct smell of a marsh, probably filled with many different plants and maybe even some weird fruits and since they were running low on supplies he decided it, spread his wings and with a little groan he lifted himself from the ground and flew upwards to try and get a better view. It was an awesome looking wetland filled with small patches of woods, grottos and in the distance he could see something similar to a village "Yeah it´s decided we are going there, ROVY... look to the west there is a village there through the marshes is not far my friend I´m going to go check the marshes for a while let´s meet under that big Willow tree okay" He said while circling above his buddy.

After meeting up and going deeper into the marshes without any sign of a village in the proximity the mood of the two wolves was completely opposite...

It was official Rovy was bored and probably a little angry with Zrani but then again Rovy was always bored it baffled Zrani with how much easy his friend ignored the awesome places they explored, there was no way to make him see the beauty of the marsh the colors the life so vibrant it soothed Zrani and made him want to take out his material and draw it was so "...Hey maybe this isn´t so bad, after all you didn´t guide us into a highway wolves infested cave like last time". The half-breed Aven-Avira tried to ignore his friend but that last excursion into what he thought was a nice warm cave in the outskirts of the Arlyne territory had turned out to be just one more opportunity to show that he wasn´t as good as fighting as his friend and another time in which his life had being saved by Rovy "He had to bring that again didn´t he, this time wasn´t so bad they probably weren´t that far from a village, probably" he though this while his friend laughed and then that annoying mutt continued to mock Zrani even making him relieve his failed combat against the Dimitrios highway wolves, all this while wearing a full fanged grin on his blood stain snout. Zrani cared a lot for Kroviye but in moments like this his anger and pride made him want to throttle the half-breed and even more when he started poking him with the bristles on his tail making him feel fussy "Kroviye stop it, there must be some village nearby and I´m sure we will find something to entertain you there" he said it while growling and clenching his teeth and them the annoying wolf decided to poke him in one of his wings "KROVIYE!" He barked at him only to be dodged with practiced ease and that was how the surrounding peaceful, filled with vibrant life marshes became a sparring ground for the two half-breeds, again.

Trying to make the best out of his dwindling day, Tiberius idled away his time trying to make a snare trap. He knew that Blossom didn't like it when he trapped prey, but it wasn't like she had to watch when he ate it! Last time she practically guilt tripped him for a week for eating a rabbit, or "cute little bunny wunny" as she liked to call it. Well, she could survive off eating berries and nuts, but he needed something meaty once in a while. Fish would be preferable, but there wasn't any in this marsh they were in. Besides, going in the water made his fur smell, and that was something he could live without.

Strolling around their camp in a wider and wider radius, Tiberius tried to find the perfect branch for his trigger. It was always a tricky find. The branch had to be spry enough to bend without breaking, and yet strong enough to return to its original shape quickly once the trap went off. Finding what had to be the perfect limb, he triumphantly picked up a young blown over sapling in his mouth. Suddenly, his ears twitched. Something was near. Clanging and growls. Wolves who were yelling. A battle? Here? The whole reason they were in this marsh is because they thought no one else would want to be here! He had to tell Blossom.

Running through the undergrowth, Tiberius watched as the branch he was carrying connected with trees on either side of him at the same time, and he felt himself fly backwards. Stupid branch. Should have known that gap was too small to carry his prize through. A little dazed, Tiberius didn't think things quite through before he yelled to Blossom "Feathers! We gotta go! An army is comin'!" Realizing his error and hoping the battling wolves were to distracted to hear him, he ran back to camp to find his friend.

Blossom had giggled at the sight of Tiberius's bed fur and instead of replying to his words about his head hurting and other stuff, she just soaked it in. It was, after all, better to listen to Tiberius then set him up and put more words in his mouth. Talking wasn't a bad quality to have in a friend, Blossom guessed, but sometimes it did get a bit boring. It's just the usual morning Tiberius.

It was just a slightly late morning for her now, and it didn't bother her like it did Tiberius. In fact, she was actually somewhat happy that she was able to be one waking him up rather than him waking her up. So, in her usual dumb-happy way, she walked out of the cave-den-thing and tried to ignore Tiberius since he had a hungry look on his face. He's probably gonna try and trap some poor innocent bunny again. It was a sad thought that made her give him a wide berth since out of their entire lives, it always seemed to her that Tiberius was the one who had the hardest time with everything.

Blossom, of course felt the pain of being discarded by her parents but she never really felt the need to go back to her roots like Tiberius did. In fact, it was his searching for his pack that led the two of them this far. He also needed to eat meat, which was nearly impossible for two youngsters like them to catch. Life was hard, maybe more so for him then her.... Or wait, wasn't it.... She could no longer think since she couldn't tell whose life was hardest up until this point. It was confusing also.

And so, it was when she was eating the bulbs of some flowers when she heard Tiberius shout out. "Feathers! We gotta go! An army is comin'!" Her first thought was: I wish he would stop calling me that, and her brain finally processed what he said. Panic struck her. What was she supposed to do?! Run, of course!!!!! But Tiberius!!!!

She looked back to where she last saw her bumbling companion. I want to run, but.... but I can't leave him either!!!! Thankfully, she was saved from having to choose between saving herself and saving her friend when she saw Tiberius come running back to camp. "Thank the gods your back! Lets go already!" She turned to start running only to have her wing hit the side of a boulder, spinning her around to fall and hit another boulder. Stupid wing!
