Introduction

'They say there's no such place... as Paradise. Even if you search to the ends of the Earth, there's nothing there. No matter how far you walk, it's always the same road. It just goes on and on. But, in spite of that... Why am I so driven to find it? A voice calls to me... It says, "Search for Paradise"..'


STORYLINE

It's the 2650 and the world is slowly dying. The weather has turned colder on most places and people live in poverty, united in a few larger cites that are spread across the lands. Villages are rare and when they are found, they turned into small ghosttowns.
According to an old legend, when the end of the world comes, Paradise will appear; however, only wolves will know how to find it. Although wolves are believed to have been hunted to extinction nearly two hundred years ago, they still exist, surviving by taking human form. Over the years, wolves learned themself how to shapeshift into human forms. They always keep slight wolf-like features, but are human enough for other people to trick... Because there are not much wolves left, these animals do not live in packs anymore. Some live in human community, some live alone outside cities... in the wilderness.... and some live in there wolf form, as pet-dogs to humans. Anyway, it's a rough life.
Our story start at a city called Freeze City. Freeze City is a northern human city where the majority of people live in poverty and hardship. A group of wolves are lurked into the city by there own instincts, some have been living here for years already, waiting for others to come. They know there is a reason to be in this city, and they know it will be the first step into finding "Paradise" (whatever paradise could be, they have no idea either). All they know is that they have to find eachother, to create the first pack in years... they must leave the city when they have done so and search for trails of paradise... will they ever reach this special place?

1. Neil Mac Tire (Male)
A Tundra Wolf (or Arctic Wolf) who is dedicated solely to finding the Paradise. He primarily acts on his instincts, which sometimes lead him to behave rashly, and the others to call him idealistic. Full of pride for his wolf heritage, he initially expresses disgust at wolves who use human disguises, but eventually realizes that it is necessary to survive. He is a natural leader and lived his life alone outside Freeze City.

a Grey Wolf with a big scar across his chest, not counting many others. Rough and self-reliant, he is a strong fighter who keeps his true feelings to himself.

3. Kodi (Male)
a Red Wolf and the youngest of the group. He is considered the pup or the runt by the others, but is a strong fighter. He was raised by an old woman who found him outside Freeze city. Due to his upbringing, he is friendly and protective towards most humans.
4. Blue Yaiden (Female)
a black Wolfdog. At first, she travels along with a hunter, hunting wolves. But she finds out that she is actually half-wolf, and unwilling to hunt her own kind, she leaves her "Owner" to join the pack. Being looked down on first, but turning out to be a strong fighter.
5*Name here* (Female)
A black wolf. Lived her life inside the city trying to steal food from humans using her powers as wolf and human. Very small and agile, Not easily impressed and independent.

I let out a slight growl as the wind started to blow harder, snowflakes torturing my face and eyes as i made my way back to the city. We, my human and I, had been out, searching for wolf trails in the snow.... and like most of the time, we hadn't found anything.
'Come 'n Blue, we are almost there' Quent, my human, spoke with his harsh voice as we reached the city wall, going trough the gate into the streets. There, the wind was much less and i shook my fur wildly to get rid of the snowflakes that cooled me down.
I looked up at Quent as he put his hunting gun back where it should be, on his back. My human had a rough face and cold eyes, showing that he had seen much in life... to much to be honest. I knew he would never think back about the horror that had happened a few years ago..... the main reason why we had left home.
Those terrible wolves! They were only the servents of death!
I felt a slight tug at my spiked collar as Quent started to walk again, and i followed him obediently. His footsteps were loud and clear, mine were barely hearable. When we came across a building, i could see my reflection in on of the windows. Like always, i was surprised about the fact how fast i had become an adult...
I had long legs and had a slim body figure. My whole fur was black as the darkest night, and i had two shiny blue eyes which i was named after. A grey, metal spiked collar was around my neck, a leash leading to Quents left hand. My reflection showed a beautiful female dog... however i had sometimes wondered about that. My teeth were larger then normal dogs... my tail was bushy and my paws large. I shook my head slightly as like i wanted to shake the thoughts away, following Quent towards a café. He kneeled down and put my leash around a small tree, patting my head and telling me to stay before he went in.... like always, he would turn towards whisky to drink away the failures of this hunt.......

It was cold, once again, as I travelled down a small road. My nose picked up every sent, and I could picture it in my mind, what or who it was. I travelled alone through Freeze City, unaware of other dogs, or wolves. I had no idea there were other wolves too, I always thought I was alone in this cold and harsh world.
I stopped as something interesting came into sight. A trashcan! I hurried down the road, almost slipping and bumping into a wall. I managed to correct myself and pushed the trashcan down. I searched for food, something I could eat, and found a burger. I smiled and took it with me.
I reached a small bench and laid down underneath it. I started eating the burger and smiled, enjoying it.
I yawned after I was finished. I closed my eyes, thinking of my past life. How it had been, and the warmth of a house, I missed it deeply. I sighed softly and looked up at the sky, wondering what more would happen.
A human passed by and stopped. The young lady bend down and looked at me. I pinned my ears and sniffed her out. She smiled and petted my head, and gave me her sandwhich. I took it and licked her hand, and she smiled and left. I ate the sandwhich and content closed my eyes again.
I couldn't sleep though. The cold was keeping me awake. My thoughts kept me awake. I had no idea what to do. Reluctantly I got up and started walking around. I came to a bar and saw a black dog and wagged my tail. I lowered my front paws playfully, watching her clodely, feeling playful. Maybe the black dog wanted to play with me. I had no idea the dog belonged to a Hunter that hunted wolves. I just stood there, tail wagging, playful.

I was about to lay my head down on my paws. I was about to close my eyes and drift into a sleep trough the cold, harsh weather... when i saw a creature standing not to far. It was a creature of avarage hight... wagging it's tail playfully... it was a wolf.
My eyes snapped open widely and I let out a bark, my long fangs showing off as i stood ready to leap forwards... to kill the animal with a strong bite... but my leash kept me in place as i growled lowly at the animal...
How could i let quent know something was wrong?! Music was comming from the café... he wouldn't hear me! I looked back at the young wolf and lowered myself, angry and stubborn... My spiked collar and leash keeping me away from the kill...

I was curious about the female dog that was before me, but she didn't seem as curious as I was. No, she was aggressive and angry it seemed. Had I done something wrong? I slowly approached the dog but made sure to stay out of her reach so I wouldn't get hurt. I lowered myself and laid down before her, looking at her closely. And now she seemed a bit... agitated perhaps? I wondered why.
I whined softly and looked at the café, then at the dog. Who would let his or her dog outside in this bare cold. That was surely not fair. But I couldn't get her loose could I... Well, maybe I could! Sure, I guess she would bite me, but than she was free and maybe she wanted to come along with me. Than I had a friend and companion. And she would not have to serve the human. She could be free, together with me!
