appearance
        mòlì was known as her father's crown jewel in both her beauty and grace. she had been a small child and for a long time it didn't seem she would ever grow. it was the summer of her sixteenth birthday that she suffered through a rather agonizing growth spurt. mòlì went from a pint sized, slim, and very doe eyed girl to a tall young woman with purpose set in her lapis lazuli eyes. as she grew into her new height she also was surprised to find that her body was changing from the thin and parallel lines to soft curves and wide hips. it was a strange change but it was not unnoticed. mòlì has always kept her mahogny hair long and preferred to let it splay wildly behind her whenever she takes flight to the skies upon báixīng. she has a creamy complexion free of any blemishes due to her lifestyle. her state of living is reflected in both her clothing and hands. her hands are soft and supple with long and thin aristocratic fingers.

personality
mòlì is best known for her stubborn and unyielding tendencies. she struggles to see others opinions as she often believes she is the only one who can be right. because of the way she was raised she is used to a life of shelter and luxury. sometimes she can appear indifferent or snobbish but it is only because she has known no other way of life. she has quite the temper on her when she feels she has been wronged. she can get flustered easily when faced with unknown territory. she does have a kind heart beneath her naive and unrealistic ideas and expectations. she has always believed her father and kingdom to be as unwavering as a stonewall. she can't picture any other life. she has always struggled to make friends because of the differences in social classes even among the other noble families belonging in her father's court. she only feels a real connection to báixīng and he's been the only one she has ever felt she could truly confide in.

XXXIt had all happened so fast...
The queen sat firmly on his back as Báixīng glided through the air, away from the burning kingdom. He could almost sense her dread, as if her feelings were seeping into his skin as she rode him. Blood was seeping out of several wounds he had endured in an attempt to protect the royal family. His wings had been stabbed with arrows, while his chest suffered a gash from a sword. His muscles were starting to weaken as his body had endured too much. His bright green eyes searched for a safe place to land to take refuge for the time being. He was sure he wouldn't be able to fly much longer.

Gruesome images were burned into his mind. Innocent bystanders being beaten and killed. He couldn't really call the royal family innocent, but he didn't believe that they deserved to die in such a horrible manner. Even after all they had put him through, he still felt sadness for the loss that the queen just withstood. He was too young to remember any scenes from his village being decimated, but he could imagine that it would have left him with the same feeling the queen was experiencing.

A loud groan escaped the dragons mouth, the pain becoming too much to bear. Thankfully, a flat perch lay carved into a mountain bordering the kingdom, a place where the two could safely rest. With urgency, he flew to this cave, landing quite sloppy compared to his usual flights. Though it couldn't be helped. With the queen still stationed on his back, he collapsed into a heap. His head slamming into the cool rock of the mountain. Another whine escaped his muzzle as he lay there limp.

The large white eyelids of the dragon began closing, as consciousness began to slip from it's mind. Without having a say in the matter, exhaustion overtook him. Not once had he ever been in such poor shape, at least in front of the queen. As if he was shrinking, his dragon body began retracting. His large claws transforming into what looked like human hands. The large white wings disappearing as if by some magic, until all that remained of his previous form was his green mane. The now human boy remained unconscious, his body not concealed by any garments. Large lashes littered his back, while blood began to seep from under his chest, staining the mountain.

Mòlì shivered as the cold air rushed over her skin. Her hands were shaking and she buried them into the silky green fur that crowned him and went down the length of his neck. She could still smell the iron that had been in the air from all the blood that had been spilled. Her eyes were glassed over as the images assaulted her mind. She would push one image away only to be replaced quickly by another. Mòlì didn't understand what had happened. The attack had been sudden and no one had anticipated it. She could still hear the gurgling scream of her father as he told her to run.

There was a rumble beneath her. She looked down at her most trusted friend and protector. Mòlì had been fortunate in the attack. She had reached Báixīng quickly and he had fulfilled his purpose in protecting her from the onslaught as well as launching out of the courtyard to get her free of the enemy. All she had sustained was a nasty gash in her shoulder that had been leaking blood slowly. She felt her eyes blur over as her blood stained the green of Báixīng's fur.

She swiped the tears away. Her mind was still struggling to process what had happened and it wouldn't be long before she was in a state of shock. She could feel the tension in Báixīng as he was struggling to keep them air born. She realized quickly where he was heading and braced herself knowing that the landing would be difficult. He was dropping quickly out of the sky and her body tensed. He managed to land in a way that protected her and prevented her from flying from his back. She quickly slid down his bad and assessed the damage as he let out a soft whine.

"Jade," she whispered and moved to where his head rested against some rocks. He looked exhausted and fear clutched at Mòlì's heart. Was he dying?

She reached out only to leap away from him as his body began to shift and shrink. She retreated and pressed her back up against the stone behind her. She felt the cold press into her flesh as her dragon morphed into a young man. She closed her eyes and opened them several times. He couldn't have been more than a year or two younger than her. His body was bleeding and she could still see where her own blood had stained his fur--hair.

Mòlì felt the panic rise in her chest. It was clawing its way through her. She bent over quickly as she began to heave. She could see the dark spots in the corners of her vision as she realized she was having a panic attack. Her body began to shake violently from the adrenaline and shock. How was this even possible? What had happened to her Jade?

There was a small groan and she forced herself to breathe slowly. She removed the small dagger from her boots and began to slice strips of cloth from the hem of her shirt. She approached Báixīng cautiously. She poked him a few times before deciding he was still asleep. She unwrapped the long length of cloth from her waist before rolling him over. She quickly draped it over him before turning to his injuries. He didn't look good.

She stared down at his face feeling mesmerized. Was this man the same as her protector?

She was struggling to wrap her mind around all of the events. She knew she had to focus on his injuries right then or he would die. She would have time to panic later.

XXXooc notes; sorry it took me so long to reply. i was at class and then had work and dinner and whatnot. also as an fyi, báixīng's thoughts are XXXXXXXXXXXXexpressed through the lighter brown while his dialogue is expressed through the darker brown color.

Báixīng watched with pain in his heart as large warriors surrounded Mòlì with various weaponry. They were surely going to kill her. I have to save her, move damn feet, move! He tried moving towards the girl with all his might, but only failed. The warriors began raising their weapons, moving in on her more and more. All he could do was watch in horror as his one and only companion was going to be murdered. However, before the weapons touched Mòlì's precious skin, everything went black.

Some time had passed from when he had fell unconscious. His eyelids gently fluttered open revealing the queens face, a whole lot closer than it had ever been. It was unusual. She definitely wasn't the size of a dragon, so how could it be that she looked a lot bigger than usual. He adjusted his body, pain shooting through his chest. He hissed and groaned until the majority of the pain subsided. Managing to lift himself up with his elbows, he was able to see the rest of his body, which was human.

Oh god, did I transform? This wasn't supposed to happen. She wasn't supposed to kn--

His eyes darted to meet the queens. His mouth agape, shocked. He had no idea what to say, or if he should say anything. He was unsure to how the queen would react. He looked back to his body seeing that she was treating his wounds, using pieces of her own clothing. One of the pieces of which was covering his lower half.Shit, what did she see.

He thought of what he could say, the sentences forming in his head being far from elegant. After all, it had been so long since he had used his own voice. He wasn't allowed to speak to the queen, and the only time he was allowed to speak other then that was when he was told to by the prison guards, or by the king. All he could muster was, "I-I can explain..."

Mòlì's fingers finished their ministrations as Báixīng's eyes fluttered open. They looked foggy and uncertain as he stared at her. He seemed to be trying to puzzle through something. She shivered and shook and quickly backed away from him. Having him look at her through a human face and human eyes was unsettling her. She pinched her eyes closed. Her mind was reeling from everything that had happened that day. She pressed herself tightly against the cold stone. She groaned as the pressure pushed against the gash in her shoulder. It had stopped bleeding some time ago and it was throbbing dully.

He was talking to her. Báixīng was talking to her. Her eyes opened and she gaped at him. All their years together she must've talked his ear off. They had reached an understanding and had been able to communicate, but he had never spoke to her. His voice was rough and deep and resonated with his dragon side. She shook her head.

"What is going on?" her eyes began to water. Her family was dead, she was the furthest she had ever been from home, and the one companion she thought she could trust she didn't know at all. "What are you?" she flinched away from him. She didn't understand what he was. She couldn't sort through her emotions as each one had attached to her like a leech and was draining her energy slowly. The day had been long and too much had happened.

Mòlì began to cry. She buried her face in her bloodied hands and cried. She didn't know what else to do.

XXXHis heart wrenched out of his chest as he watched tears stream down Mòlì's face. It was all too much for her, and expectantly so. All of her family was dead, and now she found out that the only person she has left was lying to her her whole life. He groaned as he sat up, the bandages would work temporarily, but he would need time to heal. Keeping hold of the fabric covering his body, he stood up, looking at the queen he had never been able to talk to.

XXX"Please, don't cry, be careful with your arm." He only knew how to speak Chinese from what he read and heard, his grammar and conversational spacing being a little off because of it. A few of the guards that kept him locked up during the night helped him learn to speak as well. "I am dragon. I am Báixīng." He wanted to reach out and touch the girl with his own hands, but kept his distance as not to alarm her. She was clearly scared, and pushing the situation further would only worsen things. His eyes were glazed over. Seeing the girl in such dismay made him feel uneasy. He had seen it before, but he wasn't able to say anything, or do anything about it. Not counting nuzzling his face into the girl, which did not seem appropriate in this circumstance.

XXX"I was not able to tell you. They told me to keep quiet. I have always been human. I can transform. I am Draaki." The Draaki were his people, those who could shift into dragons. The green haired boy bowed to show respect, as if to suggest that he was still her loyal protector and she was still his queen.

XXX"This is hard, but we have to keep moving. We will starve here." He found his wounds with his hands, they were going to have to suffer through more flight. Draaki healing was considerably better than that of the humans, but nevertheless the wounds needed to heal on a resting body.

Nothing made sense anymore. His concern for her had a hard time penetrating through the wall of fear and anguish that currently surrounded her emotional state. Mòlì sniffed and peeked through her fingers as he told her he was still her dragon, he was still Báixīng. She could see the similarities and she didn't doubt he was her Báixīng. It was the sting of betrayal she felt for having spent nearly her whole life with him at her side to only just now discover the truth. As he spoke it was made clear that the truth was revealed because of the attack and it was likely she would still be in the dark about it if things were different.

"How is that possible? My father said your people went extinct years ago." She managed to speak through her hiccups. Of course she didn't know the reason that they had been killed was her father. He had conveniently left that detail out when she had asked him about what had happened to the Draaki.

He was right. They couldn't stay there. It was getting dark. They had an hour, maybe two, before they'd be plunged into black. She struggled to her feet feeling weak. She pushed off of the stone wall but did not approach him. She felt like she could trust him. He had lied to her. She pursed her lips and looked around. She hadn't ventured much or far from the palace. She had no survival skills for the wilds of Najir. She shivered at the thought. Perhaps she would die after all. Perhaps her kingdom would fall.

XXXooc notes; I have added several places to the 'places' tab in our RP, and will continue to add more as they become relevant. Check them out XXXXXXXXXXXXand feel free to suggest places if you would like. Also, I am going to be posting quests for our characters to complete! It's not XXXXXXXXXXXXgoing to actually be a quest from someone, rather their own personal goals at the moment. So look forward to that on my next XXXXXXXXXXXXpost.

XXXHe looked at the girl with sorrowful eyes, for all he knew, his species was indeed extinct. "I am last Draaki..." Despite wanting to educate her more on the situation, he left it at that. There was no reason he should be sullying the dead so shortly after they passed, especially not to someone related to the dead.

XXXThoughts flew through his mind of where they could go to get shelter and sustenance. Suddenly, it hit him. "I once flew King Zhang to Tumeki. Small kingdom in mountains. They are a friendly people." They weren't too fond of him, but they would have to be since he was the queen's protector. He had forgotten the name of the queen of Tumeki, but he remembered that she was the only one who treated him other than like a monster.

XXX"I think I can fly for short time, we will make it. Please, don't be scared... I am to transform again." With his final comment, he took a few steps back away from the princess, so he wouldn't hit her accidentally in the transformation process. The boy channeled much of his strength as he shut his eyes and placed his two palms together, as if he was praying. This hand gesture was unnecessary, but he had noticed that it helped him focus.

XXXHis body began to morph again. His body became enlarged, fingers turning into claws, hair growing longer, and wings emerging from his back. The pieces of fabric that had stopped his bleeding fell to the ground, the wounds already healing faster than that of a normal human. He put down his wing for Mòlì to climb up, ready to take flight.

There was a bit of sympathy that stirred within Mòlì as he spoke. It was largely overshadowed by her anxiety and fear. She shivered as the cold was starting to seep into her skin since the day was waning. He was suggesting they keep going. She vaguely remembered hearing about Tumeki but couldn't remember any specifics. It was a kingdom too small to be of much notice to her father.

Before she could say anything in response he was already transforming. She felt sick as she watched it happen. She pressed her eyes closed waiting until he had finished. The thought of riding on his back seemed so wrong now. Her lip began to quiver as she stared at him. She bit it to make it stop.

Already his wounds didn't seem quite so severe. The bleeding had stopped. He extended his wing down for her to climb. She had done this thousands of times but now she was terrified. She didn't know him. She didn't feel like he was safe anymore. He was waiting for her. She glanced around at the stone plateau. This wasn't a place for her.

Mòlì swiped the tears from her eyes to clear her blurry vision. She clenched her teeth before she carefully climbed up to sit on his back. She shivered again and goosebumps popped over her skin. "Go." She ordered in a harsher voice than she meant. She wished that she could close her eyes and open them to reveal this to be nothing more than a bad dream.

    The queen of Tumeki had made an effort to become allies with the most prosperous kingdom of Najir. Her small village provided food and other resources to maintain a healthy relationship with the king. She has not yet been informed of his death and will surely be devastated to hear such a thing. Despite being a peaceful kingdom, they still train troops and guards fit for war. Though convincing the queen to provide assistance for bloodshed will not be an easy feat.

XXXooc notes; I put up an NPC thread. You may add anyone you think deserves a character sheet. As of now, Queen Shufen is the only one in XXXXXXXXXXXXthere. It has a little more background on her, as well as a visual. We can add more people as we go. Also, the first mission is up! XXXXXXXXXXXXSo basically our characters will work through the goal, they can fail or succeed it is really up to us. There will be a mission, or XXXXXXXXXXXXseveral, per kingdom/village our characters visit. I will keep adjusting the status bar as they get closer to the goal.

XXXMòlì's command was rather cold this time around, but Báixīng obeyed nonetheless. The take off was rather rough as he fought through the pain searing through his chest. He had never flown in such poor conditions before, which worried him. Even if they crashed, Mòlì would be safely protected by his wings and body, but he would most likely die. His will to live to stay by the princess' side always kept him going. It was a natural feeling by now. He trained day and night for any possible situation that could occur, and this was his own choice, not something forced upon him.

XXXLess than an hour of silence passed, it was now dark and ominous. Thankfully the moon was full and bright for the princess, as Báixīng could already see with his nocturnal vision. It would be a lot more difficult for them to speak to the queen at this time of night, so Báixīng was now relying on the kindness from the villagers to take them in. As he passed through two mountains, a pocket of lights appeared. The dragon began making his descent to the ground, trying his best to stay balanced and steady.

XXXBáixīng landed in front of the kingdom gates, not wanting to land within the village and scare away everyone. He also made the decision to stay within his dragon form, as that was how the queen and many of the guards knew him. Upon landing, blood began dripping out of his mouth. He had pushed himself too hard. The two guards stood there in shock. As they raised a torch to get a better look, it was clear they were shaking. "I-I thought they were all dead, how in the world is there a dragon before us. What do we do?!" In unison, they raised their weapons.

XXXThe other one chimed in, "Ring the bell, we must warn the others." Báixīng stomped the ground furiously in retaliation, the guard stopping in his tracks. He moved closer to the two guards and lowered his head and wings so Mòlì could slide off of him. If she stated her name, they would more likely than not know who she was.

Mòlì's body was shivering and shaking as he took to the sky again. She was starting to feel a dense numbness enter her bones. She had just survived her family's massacre only to discover the truth of her dragon guardian. She twisted her hands tightly through his emerald mane as he continued to lunge forward in the sky. She wasn't sure how much longer it would take as night had now fallen. The air was cold and bit into her skin but she no longer paid any heed to it.

Soon enough Báixīng landed, rather hard, in front of two large gates. They had arrived at Tumeki and she heard the fear in the guards voices as they realized a dragon had seemingly fallen out of legend in front of them. Báixīng was not taking their reaction well. Even though she felt bitter and betrayed over the truth, she couldn't bear the thought of her only protector being struck down now after having come to where they hoped was a safe haven.

Báixīng finally shifted into a position that would allow her to gain access to the ground. Her shoulder was throbbing in a dull ache and she hissed as her feet landed heavily on the ground. Her body absorbed the shock as she took a clumsy step forward.

"Stop!" she maneuvered herself quickly in front of her dragon. She raised her good hand hoping they would realize they came in peace. "We are not here to cause trouble, we need sanctuary." Even though she felt numb there was a stirring of desperation. If they turned them away now--no, she wouldn't think of it.

"My name is Mòlì, I am the crown princess of the kingdom of Najir." She glanced over at Báixīng. "This is my guardian and protector, he will not harm you." She sighed. "Please, you must help us, let me speak with your queen to plead our case," she frowned, "we have nowhere else to go."

XXXThe dragon adjusted his posture to a more threatening stance after Mòlì left his back. If the guards wouldn't listen to her, he could always disarm them and protect her. Thankfully, that wasn't necessary as the guards instead bowed their heads to the princess. They surely had heard of her name and would now listen without making any rash decisions. One of the guards spoke up, still looking nervously at the dragon, "We must go find the Queen, she will be able to confirm the rest of our suspicions. Please wait here."

XXXThe two guards then disappeared into a door hidden within the kingdoms wall. Báixīng lowered his center of gravity and rested his head on the floor. Exhaustion devouring the rest of the adrenaline he had within him. After what seemed to be many minutes, a large group of guards emerged from the gates. Within the center of the crowd was the queen.

XXXThe crowd then dispersed into a more militant line, "Ah, Mòlì." Meili, the queen, approached the princess and kissed both her cheeks. "I don't know if you remember me, but we used to play together as young girls." The queens eyes then visibly noticed the large gash in Mòlì's arm. "W-What has happened to you two?" She then peered over to the dragon, noticing that his eyes were struggling to stay open. She looked to her guards, "Alert doctor Keung immediately that he has two important patients."

XXXMeili snaked her arm around Mòlì's shoulders and then escorted her into the kingdom walls. Báixīng slowly followed behind, his footsteps heavy. The village homes were small, but very quaint. The real beauty of the kingdom wasn't it's architecture, rather the nature that surrounded the area. It was lush and green, and several waterfalls poured into rivers bordering the villages within the kingdom. "So tell me everything my princess, why have you come here searching refuge?"

Mòlì felt Báixīng shift his weight behind her. She knew how intimidating he could appear if he wanted. She felt her stomach twist as they were ordered to wait there. Mòlì wasn't sure if she could stand to wait any longer. She was exhausted and drained where she stood. She was astonished she hadn't fallen over yet. She was sure she couldn't last much longer when the doors opened once more and out came a large guard. She wanted to cry with relief when she saw Meili standing there. It took all her self control to not fall on her knees and weep as a little child would upon the hem of her mother.

"A nightmare has come into my land." She murmured and swayed on her feet. Her shoulder was throbbing once again in her consciousness. Mòlì leaned heavily upon Meili as the young queen wrapped her arm around her shoulders. The ground shook with each step from the dragon and it brought curious eyes forward. Dragons were thought to have been extinct so it was no wonder that they were met with awestruck faces.

Mòlì felt the weight of the attack fall heavily once more now that she knew she was safe for the night. She felt the panic rise within her and she had to shake herself to stave off the panic attack. "My family is dead Meili." She whispered. "I don't know who they were, but they came swift and hit us hard. I watched them slice into my father. They wore black and their eyes were full of hunger and hate." She shivered. "They swept into my kingdom like a locust. They devoured everything in their path. I would be laying in a pool of my own blood if Báixīng hadn't been their to lift me out of the courtyard."

She closed her eyes and pinched the bridge of her nose. "Please, I can't say any more. We are injured and exhausted. May we rest here? Are we safe?" her eyes lurched open and she grasped Meili with her good hand. "Please." She couldn't even imagine what they would do if Meili turned them away.

XXXooc notes; Apologies for the delay. Been extremely busy with the new year. Hopefully you are doing well!

XXXMeili cradled the young princess in her arms, her own eyes beginning to water. She had been close with the Zhang family in more ways than one. The queen and king were like her second parents. Nonetheless, she pushed past her emotions and refocused her attention to the grieving daughter before her. "You are always welcome here my dear. We shall clear a stable for Jade, and you may stay in the guest room within the castle. First let me take you two to the doctor." The desperation in Mòlì's eyes was enough to make her melt.

XXXWithin a few hours, Meili managed to patch up the two survivors as well as bring them to their sleeping chambers. Before leaving the princess to sleep she let out a sigh. "I am so sorry for your loss. Please take a few days to rest and enjoy the village. I must take this time to consult my advisers about this news, afterwards I will check up on you two. If you need anything while I am busy, feel free to address the housemaids." She left the room hastily as the emotions within her finally took over. Anger, fear, sadness, it was all too much.

XXXBáixīng rested on the hay beneath him, transformed into his human appearance. Last time he stayed the night, the stable was guarded in order to tame the alarm among the villagers. This time was no different. Despite the discomfort, he fell asleep immediately, his body beaten and exhausted.

▬▬ Two Days Later ▬▬


XXXA frightening dream shook him awake in a sweat causing the guards outside the stable to spark a conversation.
XXX"You hear that? I think it's finally awake..."
XXX"Crazy, that things been asleep for two days straight. Should we check on him?"
XXX"Probably, we don't want him to slam the door on us."
The wooden barn doors creaked open to reveal the human Báixīng with a look of shock on his face. There was no time for him to transform before being spotted. In an instant, spears were pointed towards his face. "Please, I am Báixīng. I can explain." This situation felt all too similar.

XXXHe was quickly taken before the queen, not allowed to give any explanation without the presence of authority. Though it was evident that Meili was one step ahead of everyone. She stood in front of the Draaki and caressed his face, "I knew. Does Mòlì?" He nodded, leading Meili to call for the princess through one of the housemaids. "I need to talk to the both of you regarding this recent declaration of war."
