Description

Captain Elcid Barrett
Image

Name: Elcid Barrett

Nickname: Cid, Captain

Age: 24

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 200lbs.

Skills: Elcid is a veteran sailor. He has advanced skills in cartography, astronomy, meteorology, not to mention everything that comes along with running a ship such as rigging, navigating and sailing. Elcid is also an accomplished leader and is able to get even the rowdiest men to fall in line. He doesn't demand order, but he does demand respect and that his men be dependable. He inspires loyalty far more often than he demands it. He is a natural Alpha, in a way.

Elcid is also an experienced adventurer and hunter. He knows how to track and fight all kinds of beasts and monsters most have only dreamed of. He has a wide aray of knowledge about the world as he has been traveling it since he was a small boy.

It is an extremely well kept secret but the Captain was bitten by a once thought long dead mythical creature while he was exploring mysterious vanishing island chains. Due to this, Elcid is now a True Werewolf. This gives him a multitude of abilities even in his Human form. It also gives him an odd commanding presence and a gaze that turns lesser men into whimpering dogs.

-Superhuman Senses: His senses of sight, smell, and hearing are far beyond that of a normal humans and more akin to than of an actual wolf. It helps while sailing being able to sense drops in barometric pressure for storms and the like.

-Superhuman Strength: He is strong enough to bend steel bars and shatter limbs with a single kick. He is strong enough to lift several tons and able to beat large monsters with nothing but his bare hands.

-Superhuman Speed: He can move far faster than the finest human athlete or a wolf.

-Superhuman Reflexes: His reflexes are similarly enhanced and are much faster than those of the most physically fit human. Able to catch arrows or other things straight out of the air.

-Superhuman agility, dexterity, coordination and balance: His agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.

-Superhuman Durability: His body takes a much more extreme beating than a normal human body. He can take one hell of a beating, his bones only breaking under the most extreme of pressure and punishment.

-Superhuman Stamina: The Captain's musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human, granting him superhuman levels of stamina. He can exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue begins to impair him.

-Regenerative Healing Factor: The Captain has some regenerative ability, even able to regrow limbs with enough time. Save for the upper left side of his face, most of his superficial injuries heal completely.

-Shapeshifting: The Captain can turn, at will, into a half-man, half-wolf creature and a monstrous huge wolf.

Unfortunately, this also gives him several drawbacks. He now has an extreme aversion to silver. The smell of it int he room can make him seem uncomfortable and on edge. It burns him even with light skin contact and can pierce his durable skin with ease. He also cannot heal silver sustained wounds quickly, having ot rely on basic medicine and surgery practices to stitch the wounds close, not even healing magics can aid him.

Compounded on that, is he is at mercy to the turnings of the moon. Every night for one week a month, Elcid loses his mind when the moon rises and does not regain it until the sun takes its place. He must always lock himself up in a very secure room, usually with silver scattered everywhere. He even commissioned a massive sealed chamber to place himself in during the voyage when his sickness comes up.

Occupation: Sea Captain, Explorer, Adventurer, Trader, Smuggler.

Current Captain of the The Fallen Angel

Likes: Strong drink, The open sea, Freedom, adventure, hearty food, good company, singing, vast open sky, Sailing, a good laugh, the sun

Dislikes: Being landlocked, cells, silver, the moon, problem sailors, uncoordinated crew men, people who hate singing, pirates

Personality: Elcid is a man who can always be found smiling. He loves this world and everything it has to offer. He believes the greatest things in existence have yet to be discovered, which is why he believes it might as well be him who discovers them. He can often be found cracking a joke, even at his own expense. He'll never say no to a drink and prefers ot get along with all he meets. Its not hard to anger him, but it is rarely seen. He has an intersting accent as he was raised around sailors. (It basically sounds like Irish slang).

He as an interesting test that he gives to anyone who wants to join his crew he asks them one question. "How good is your singing?"


Character Summary: Elcid is the picture of the classic explorer hero from the old days. He is akin to this worlds Francis Drake. Before his "accident", he had flowing blond hair, two blue eyes and sun-kissed skin. Since then he now has one blue eye, white hair and pale white skin. He always wears a purple bandana that covers the missing part of his face. He wears a large purple colored captains jacket over his shoulders, never really putting it on. While on a ship he wears nothing beneath the jacket saved for some white pair of trousers with a lavender sash and black boots. He carries no obvious weapon with him save for a pair of flintlock pistols.

Elcid was born at sea. On his fathers ship called the "Bonny Diamond". His father raised him on that ship. Though they eventually dropped his mother off, Elcid wanted to stay on the ship. From then on, all Elcid wanted to be was a Sailor. His father was named Nelson Barrett, and he was a First Class Privateer. He and his crew were hired by the Briellan Royal Navy to hunt pirates and keep the waters safe for travelers and merchants. Elcid saw first hand the cruelty of men when he witnessed the pirates acts and was proud of his father from sending them back down where they belonged. He learned many skills from his father, how to sail, how to navigate, how to watch the stars and weather. His favorite lesson from his father was how to sing. It turned out singing was one of the most important part of being a sailor. He also learned how to drink. His crew used to say the only thing he loved more than drink was his son.

When Elcid was 12 years old, he decided to part ways with his father and set out on his own. He joined a whaling ship in service to the kingdom of Briella named the "Gay Lady". It was there he did a three year run and learned how to harpoon and bait and ho to think the creatures of the deep. You had to go deep into different oceans to hunt for whales and Elcid saw sights he never dreamed of. Creatures with rainbow colored scales flying in and out of the sea. Islands that defy the laws of physics and skies so alien, that you think you died and went to heaven.

When he was 15 he signed on for a merchant vessel called the "Seas Worth". It was there that he traveled all over the world meeting hundreds of new people with strange customs and foods. The ship also doubled as Smugglers sometimes for far off communities with strange fruits and spices to trade for blankets and grain. He learned several new languages, being taught by the natives themselves. He learned acceptance and tolerance of people from all creeds and species. He even might a tribe of two-headed giants called the Ettins, learning even they could be befriended. Its all when he sailed the Demons Horn, one of the most dangerous areas to sail, highest casualties out of nay other area recorded by civilize folk. He faced storms that looked like the Faces of the Gods were trying to pierce the veil.

From the Ages of 18-19 he stayed on shore to take care of his Mother who was ill. He also made the arrangements for his fathers funeral. He was killed in action. So famous was his father that many people, even the Admiral of the Royal Navy was in attendance of the funeral. Because so many people were there, they spread the word of the strange last request of his father. He said that he wanted to be sealed in a coffin filled with Rum and set out to sea, so he could be surrounded by his two greatest loves, Drink and the Ocean. From then on, every sailor referred to grog(alcohol) as Nelsons Blood.

When his Mother was well again, Elcid formed his own crew, bought a ship with savings and set out on the open ocean. It was a Brig, two masts and fully fledged for naval warfare. He named her "The High Wind". Twas this ship where Elcid won his reputation. He became an explorer and discovered all kinds of new lands, creatures and foods. He fought giant monsters that could fly and breathe fire, witches who lived deep within the ocean who lulled men to their deaths, cannibalistic tribes of creatures who worshiped Death. His adventures became legendary, as did he.

One adventure when he came back, he was missing the upper left side of his face and his hair and skin had gone white. For once to the shock of all, Elcid had no story to tell. To this day he has not explained what happened to him, nor his crew.

Soon, he was contacted by the Princess of Briella herself, Evankka Evelyn Evans. She was putting together a massive crew for an expedition to the most fabled lands in the world, and she wanted him to Captain the "Fallen Angel", the pride of the Royal Fleet. He agreed on one condition, he could bring his crew with him, she agreed.

Why do you want to join our adventure?: Well any adventure would wet the whistle of this daredevil of a man. Besides he was hired to Captain the adventure, don't need much more of an incentive.
(Though, there may be a secret reason he wants to go, but and his crew won't say anything about it.)

So begins...

Elcid


"You'll take o' her, won't ya Jack?" Elcid asked his old friend and Dockmaster Jack Puller. He was leaving the High Wind in his capable hands while he and his crew set off for adventure. Elcid wasn't sure when, or if, he would be back. So he made sure his pride and joy was taken care of.

"Stop your nagging Cid, she'll be fine. I'll treat her nice and proper, like a real lady. Now you and that barrell of pullseys you call a crew get out of here. Some of us have work to do." JAck reassured Elcid, poking a barb at him. "Fine, Jack. We'll go. See ya around and don't get dead." Elcid turned from his friend to his ship one last time. He breathed her in and then set off towards his crew. "Alright boys! Let's get 'ar arsses to The Fallen Angel 'for the tide swallows us up!" The men cheered in unison and the group of 25 or so men carrying several kinds of chests and napsacks began to walk down the docks towards the massive ship, Elcid in the lead.

As they walked, Elcid felt a pick up in his mood and felt that he needed to mark the occasion with something. All of the grog was on the ship, so he would have to mark it with the next best thing. "Right lads! Lets mark the occasion with a classic!"

Elcid:When I was a little lad or so my mammy told me,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Elcid:That if I didn't kiss the girls, me lips would all grow moldy,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Crew:Way! haul away, we'll haul for better weather
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Way! haul away, we'll haul away together
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Elcid:King Charlie was the king of Draun before the revolution,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Elcid:And then he got his head cut off, it spoiled his constitution,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Crew:Way, haul away, we'll haul for better weather
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Way haul away, we'll haul away together
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Elcid:For once I had a Tyrish girl but she got fat and lazy,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Elcid:then I had a Briellan girl, but she could drive me crazy,
Crew:Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Crew:Way, haul away, we'll haul for better weather
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Way haul away, we'll haul away together
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Elcid:A hey cant you see the black clouds arising
Crew:Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Elcid:A hey cant you see the storm clouds are gathering
Crew:Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Crew:Way, haul away, we'll haul for better weather
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Way haul away, we'll haul away together
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!


The lads had finished up the song by the time they began to board the Fallen Angel. She was a sight for sure. While Elcid vastly preferred smaller vessels, he could see the majesty and appreciate the power of one such as this one. He turned and began to call at his crew as they began to fan out on the deck.

"Alright men! Find yer posts! Get bunk'd down and then haul yer arse to posts and scuppers and make double all the riggins'! If there's a family a mice feck'in on board, I wanna know about it!!! Every nook and cranny logged! Mr. Murdoch!"Elcid said, turning to his first mate. Gerard turned to him with a very serious and sober look. "Yes, Captain?"

"I want a log of all the mens findings in my quarters before we set to the waves. Also, make sure all of the special arrangements are taken care of for my bouts of sickness, will ya?" Elcid said, clasping him on the shoulder. "Consider it done, Captain. Alright you lot, you heard the Captain! Get moving!"

As Elcid knew everything would be fine in Gerards hands, he began to look about the ship. He immediately spotted a sight that confused him. It looked to be the Princess. She was here this early? The man she was speaking with looked like a retainer of sorts. Strange.

"Your Majesty! What are ya doin' here this early in the morn? Didn't expect ya till we wayed anchor. Whts that ya got there?" Elcid leaned over looking at her clipboard. "Taking inventory are ya? Looks like we'll make a sailor of you yet!" Elcid said with a laugh. It was then that he turned his attention to her compatriot. He put his hand out to grasp the other mans. "Names Elcid Barrett. Captain of this here little 'venture. Who might you be?"

Kaleb Seklar

Kaleb felt his body tensen a little as the Princess and her party made their way through the docks towards the Fallen Angel. He could smell the fresh sea air, a welcome change from the musty perfumed air in the castle, and every now and then he glanced out at the horizon, thinking that in an hour or two, they would be setting sail for lands unknown. It had been a long morning of preparations for this voyage, including organizing the roster of guards who would be present on board the ship, however he had not been allowed to pick through the crew detail or passenger lists at the behest of her Highness, much to his frustration.

She does not take her safety seriously... and she does not wish to hide from danger any more. I deeply admire her for her determination, but I can only pray she will come to terms with what manner of evil haunts this world... before we all pay the price for it... Wait... where in the hells is Zane? That boy will be the death of me.

Progressing through the docks, with others in deep conversation with the Princess or waving to the citizens gathering around the departing ship, Kaleb found himself trying to weed out familiar faces amongst the crowd, looking for anyone who might see an opportunity to strike at Eevie. Distantly he heard voices singing sea shanties, and as they drew closer to the ship, his eyes caught sight of a man who could pass for a noble approaching the Princess.

Catching a full glimpse of his face, he recognized him as the half-vampire who was sentenced to exile from Briella, having seen him in a hearing in front of the Royal Family. Instincts told Kaleb that he should be on guard, but surely this half-vampire would be wiser than to attack the Princess in the middle of a crowd of mercenaries and loyal sailors. He made no actions as he started a conversation, deciding that Eevie would be able to handle it.

No doubt Eevie had arranged for him to be taken on this sailing. A kindness that others never showed him.

They continued on their way towards the Fallen Angel, past the fisher's wives and well wishers who were clamoring for a glimpse of the Princess, until they encountered a dashing gentleman with a composure of importance beyond royalty that only the Captain of a ship could have.

Behold Captain Barrett - one of the greatest nautical adventurers of our time. We could easily have sourced a reliable Captain from our own naval fleets, but it was not our decision to make. I don't trust these merchant traders turned pirate-hunters; they reek of hypocrisy, and claim the pirated goods for themselves - does it make them any better than the pirates?

He allowed the Princess and the Captain to speak a while, before stepping forward to have a quick word with the good Captain away from Eevie.

"I trust you and your crew are all set for this adventure, Captain Barrett? Your ship will be perfectly safe here in the port - after all, there are few finer shipwrights on this continent, if the archives are to be believed."

When Captain Elcid offered his hand to Carmillus the dhampir took it and shook hands. "The name is Carmillus Agincourt. I am under your employ as the ships wizard. I have read about several of your voyages and must admit I am rather impressed with your escapades." As his hand made contact with the Captian's his dhampir nature could sense that something about him wasn't natural. Carmillus casually dismissed this feeling. He himself was far from natural and if the captain did have something unnatural about him than there was nothing wrong about it.

When Kaleb arrived Carmillus also greeted him with a casual nod. "I assume you are one of the guards here to keep our Priness safe. It's good to know that your kind is here to ensure that our little adventure doesn't get out of hand."

"Everything's ready, are we ready?" Ashton asked, talking mostly to himself as the physical copies of Shadow pranced around his room to pack everything up. A couple of "Yep!"'s later and Ashton's ear twitched. Was that snoring? Not just snoring...but...rumbling.

Zane, no doubt.

Rolling his predatory eyes he walked, suitcase in hand, to Zane's quarters to find him sprawled out on his back, dead to the world in a deep sleep. He put his suitcase down and walked over to the bodyguard, nudging him a few times before rolling his eyes again. Using the darkness of the room, Ashton created six copies of himself, one for each corner of the bed, and one for the middle of each side so that he could carry the bed, Zane and all, to the boat. After some more trickery, he managed to get the bed out to the courtyard, knocking loudly on June's door to signify that it was time to leave.

As he walked he smelt alcohol in the air, not from Zane, but nearby nonetheless, and smiled. This reminded him of a song! Clearing his throat, him and his six copies all harmonized, the words flowing beautifully, but cheerfully from all of them, each of them taking a turn with the verses.

This loud, cheerful singing wouldn't be enough to wake up Zane, but would be enough to announce his presence upon the docks, carrying the bed up the gangplank of the ship and onto the main deck. Where, with a clap of his scaled, slightly claw-like hands, Ashton made his copies vanish, the bed crashing to the deck.

Amaco


Waiting for this day to come seemed like a lifetime to Amaco. Everyday it was continual nagging from her leaders about going over the plan, and how she needed to channel her "nice girl" side. The other Mongrels would tease her, "Be a nice kitty cat, Mac, and you'll get a big fish from papa." Of course, this only provoked her and they either got a mean jab to the ribs or a rude remark, demoralizing them. They would just laugh and walk off, leaving Amaco to stew in her annoyance. She didn't quite think of herself as hotheaded. She could control her anger if she needed, she just never had the need to before. She seemed to always be surrounded by rough "people", if you could even call them people.

She watched as a few people made their way to the docks. First the princess, and oh she looked delicious, then someone she assumed was royalty. He had servants following him. Amaco couldn't tell, and she didn't particularly care. But you need to... she internally chided herself. Someone like him could be important. And now he was talking to the princess. Even more interesting. She scanned the docks again, looking for more of the future crew. She saw a body guard, or at least what she assumed was a body guard. She couldn't be quite sure, but she made a mental note to either avoid him, or get on his good side. Either way, she knew she would need to act the sweetest around him were he to talk to her. A man with white hair and an eye patch was walking and singing with a group of men following behind him. No doubt he was the captain. She sniffed the air and was displeased with the aroma. She twitched her nose and let out a low snarl. What is that? She sighed and stood from her perch on the roof of the hotel she stayed in the night before. Amaco knew that she needed to be on that ship as soon as possible. Being the navigator, she would need to meet the captain and at least a few of the crew members. It wasn't necessary to meet the princess, but she was hoping to talk to her today.

As she made her way through the street toward the Fallen Angel, she saw Rooke, a renown blacksmith, pushing his cart up onto the ship. The corners of her mouth twitched. She had no idea he was coming on this trip. Oh the boys won't be too happy about this, she thought and a smirk found it's way onto her lips. He made some of the best weapons she'd ever seen. Some of the best anyone had ever seen, for that matter. Of course, with her low profile status in the Mongrels, he wouldn't recognize her. Amaco had never purchased her own weapons. She remembered her handcrafted weapons hidden safely in her bags and the thought struck her that he would recognize his own handiwork. She decided to ditch them the first chance she got. She realized he might remember who he had sold them too, and put together her affiliation with the Mongrels. She'd just have to buy new.

The closer she got, the stronger that strange smell got, and soon enough she realized what it was. Werewolf. The thought seeped like poison as she fought a scowl. It was strong, and there was something different, but she credited it to all the other creatures that must have been boarding, or soon to be boarding the ship. Mac shook her head slightly, and lowered her hood as she boarded the ship. The feeling of leaving the land had little effect on her. She had lived in many places, and so home was honestly where she lay her head at night. Growing accustomed to ship life wouldn't take the girl too long. As she neared the princess she smiled, and pulled her hair over her shoulders, hoping to look softer. She wasn't wearing her normal attire. Today she was sporting tan pants and a loose white top, complete with her black cloak and black boots. She didn't want to seem too menacing on her first day. She was over thinking things a little. A lot of people wore all black, and sometimes even face masks. She saw the captain and the one who smelled like a Vampire.. No. Dhampir. She scrunched her nose at the captain but decided to bury her hatred for wolves, for the princess's sake.

"Hello," she said curtly. She bowed at her waist to the princess, then nodded her head to the dhampir. She wasn't sure exactly who he was, but she wasn't going to risk any disrespect this soon. Just as Amaco was going to address the captain, the one who she had assumed was a body guard pulled him aside to speak. She was relieved she wouldn't have to talk to the filthy creature, but soon realized she was alone with the princess with nothing to say. "My name is Amaco and I am the navigator," Mac said, faking a bashful smile as she pulled a map from her side bag. She unrolled it slightly before it snapped back into place and she replaced it in the bag. Not wanting to take up too much of the princess's time, she excused herself politely and began wandering the deck, slowly making her way to the ship's head. Mac decided to wait for the captain, Elcid was his name, she remembered.

Amaco was temporarily amused when she saw the draconian and the red haired boy. The bed crashed on the deck, and she flinched slightly, wondering if it would have caused any damage to the deck. She put it out of her mind when the red haired boy began yelling at the other boy. She smiled, hoping it would turn into a fight. Much to her disappointment, the red haired boy backed off, and was soon cheerful, wondering where in the world he was. She turned her attention to the monkey-like man and wondered whether there was such a thing as weremonkeys. Although she had never seen one, or heard of one, she assumed everything was possible. He seemed to be very powerful, considering his jump and climb onto the ship. He explained to the red head where they were, and she once again put her focus on the captain, who was still talking to the guard.

The Princess smiled with delight at the greeting from the mage. "It is an absolute pleasure to meet you." The sun was now shining brightly across the sky, Evankka winced at the intense rays, not accustomed to being outside for long periods of time, she honestly wasn't a fan of the sunlight.
That didn't matter though, she would endure it for the sake of this trip.

She averted her attention back to the wizard. "Oh, I simply couldn't wait any longer, I just had to come see the ship with my own eyes." and with that she was approached by a man she recognized immediately. Though she hadn't got out much, she has heard many tales of the captain of The Fallen Angel and admired him greatly.
She glanced down at her clipboard and giggled, tossing it overboard. "That? It's nothing. A silly habit really, this is your ship and I should have faith in both you and your crew." She gave a heartwarming smile before realizing she hadn't properly introduced herself. "Captain Elcid it is truly an honor to meet you and have access to your ship for my adventure. You have my sincere thanks." She gave a small bow.

She couldn't help but to be the slightest bit distracted by all the commotion in the background, several new faces were showing up, and many of them were quite loud. There was already such a variety of members aboard. She had already met a wizard and the famous Captain Elcid, she couldn't wait to see who else she would encounter.
As her mind wondered, she suddenly realized she felt a bit strange without her bodyguards watching her every move, usually she could barely get a moment to herself. She kind of liked the freedom of not being watched and followed, but of course that wouldn't last.
Her freedom was short lived as she saw her more serious bodyguard approach and take the captain to the side.

Just as the captain was being pulled off to the side, she was approached by someone else, this time, a woman. "Hello, I'm thrilled to have you aboard." She gave a bow in return, showing her respect and appreciation to the woman.

Terror Casron


A cloaked figure walked down the docks silently, carrying a book in one hand kept close to her body and a medium sized bag in the other. She was very aware of people around her and walked cautiously, avoiding those that looked like they may attack her of they discovered what she was. Others that caught her eye she gave a friendly smile which was often returned with a fearful look. Terror didn't let this faze her, however, as she got closer to the ship.

She came to a halt before heading up the ship because a man with clones of himself was carrying a bed with another man sleeping on it up onto the ship. She immediately recognized the clones as a sort of magic and almost got overly excited at the fact that their was someone else on the ship that would be using magic as well.

She watched the scene unfold in front of her as she made her way up onto the deck of the ship. She pulled her hood off now revealing her horns and strange color skin. She giggled as the bed came crashing down and the red haired man angrily got up. She was just approaching as the monkey made his way around the bed, overhearing everything he said. "It was magic he used, he released the spell." She giggled as she explained to the monkey as best she could from what she had seen.

"I'm glad to know someone else on this ship will also be using magic." She said to the guy who had used the magic while giving him a smile. She glanced over at the captain, but he appeared to be busy talking with someone. She decided she'd have to introduce herself later when he wasn't busy. She watched the red haired man take off running and watched him for a brief second before turning back to look at the other man and the monkey. "Oh I'm Terror by the way. I'm the ships doctor so if you somehow get any injuries or even if you get sea sick feel free to seek me out and I can help with that." She introduced herself, friendly smile still on her features. She hoped none of them would be frightened of her at all and hoped her friendliness would deter any of those feelings.

I remained leaning against the wall as the morning drove on, watching as people began to move aboard the ship. It seemed this trip had drawn in all kinds of people and beings, I suppose something of this magnitude is not something passed on easily. I pushed myself off the wall and stood up straight, getting a better view of the ships deck. I noted that people seemed to be gathering around the women who I saw earlier taking down notes, I rubbed Zeds head and mumbled to myself. "Must the princess." I was about to step forward but had to stop and stare as several identical figures seemed to be carrying a bed onto the ship then letting it drop once they were on deck. I raised an eyebrow and looked around seeing several more strange sights, a man moving like a monkey jump down from the rooftops and climb up the side of the ship, another figure landing a small distance from me, a women who also moved onto the ship. I looked down at Zed and sighed. "Guess this will not be the quiet trip we were hoping for. Lets go."

I walked along the dockside and turned to head up the gangplank but clearly Zed was too excited by the new surroundings as he jumped ahead of me and bounded up onto the ships deck, letting out a loud roar of excitement and stretching out his limbs. I rolled my eyes hoping that our boarding would go largely unnoticed before walking up on deck and pulling back the hood of my cloak. It seemed pointless to try and hide my presence with Zed here, even more so considering I stood at least a head taller than any other on board. I thought it best to at least formalize my presence to the princess, best not be thought as a stowaway.

I patted my leg and Zed quickly moved to my side as I walked towards the group of people gathered near the princess. As we got near Zed stopped I lowered himself, growling quietly at the man with white hair and baring his fangs. I snapped my fingers at him, instantly making him stop the growl and move back to my side. I stopped a couple of meters away and pulled my bag off my shoulder, letting it rest on the floor. Only then did I realize how diverse our company truly would be, most of the beings here seemed to share at least some blood with an elder race. That or have over indulged in the use of magic. I waited patiently until my presence was noticed by the princess, giving a small nod of my head and speaking in my usual deep and gravely voice. "Highness."

Hallie was slowly dragging herself with her head bent forwards. It had been years ever sinse she saw a sunrise or anything close to it, but she didn't bother to look at it. Instead, her attention was taken by the enormous ship. Her hair covered most of her face, yet a smile was visible.
"This is it..." Halinor thought and sped up towards the docks.

Soon her steps started getting slower and slower, as she was noticing barely enough of her surroundings, until she stopped near the princess. Hallie pulled her long black hair backwards, uncovering her dark blue eyes, which could be mistaken for purple due to the redness and capillaries. Her pale skin complimented the existance of her eye bags and shadows. She cleared her throat quickly and quietly.
"Good morning. I'm here for the Angelic Fall journey..." she spoke in a low, hoarse voice and yawned. "I mean... Fallen Angel. Yep, it's the Fallen Angel. That's right. Nice to meet you, my name is..."
Hallie immediately went silent, as her head quickly bent forwards. Slight snoring could be heard.
"Halinor Weiss. Call me Hallie." she snapped out of her quick slumber and went inside the ship.

Amaco

Amaco smiled at Jonathan. He seemed equally pleased and intrigued by her payment. He appeared to be thinking before he finally looked up at her. He agreed to her deal and she hoped he would have it done soon. She couldn’t wait to know how it would feel in her hands. “Thank you, Rooke. And if I am pleased with your work, which no doubt I will be, you will be seeing more of me.” She smiled again at him and glanced around the ship. A much more pressing thought crossed her mind. Eventually there would be a full moon and she would be forced to find somewhere to change safely. Normally it wasn’t a problem. Sometimes the Mongrels would put her in the cellar, but other times they let her run around the forest, hunting all night. This was preferable, but without a pack for her to run with, she sometimes got lost and it would take a day or two to find her way back home. She knew the forest well, but her human form traveled a lot slower compared to the panther-human hybrid form.

She replaced her hood and began pacing the edge of the ship. This craft was ginormous and it would take a few days to explore the whole thing. Catching sight of the captain once more, Amaco stopped and watched him for a minute, before deciding to approach him. She still had a little more than a week before the full moon, and she figured there would be plenty of room below. She’d have to find chains too. And the supply of meat. I’m sure there will be plenty of fish, she thought and her stomach growled, reminding her she hadn’t eaten breakfast.

When she thought of the panther, her stomach churned slightly. She had changed so many times, she could almost feel the pain just thinking about it. But when she was the panther, she felt alive. She almost preferred it. That was only when she chose to change of course. During the full moon she couldn’t control herself. Amaco didn’t mind much though, she wasn’t afraid to rip anyone apart. In fact, she loved it. The panther loves it.. she thought, wondering where the desire to kill really came from. However, hunting wasn’t an option on this ship. No one could know her secret, and she definitely couldn’t eat anyone. She’d be overboard within the hour. Unless no one found out… she smirked.

Soon enough she was standing near Elcid and the smell of wolf was overwhelming. Now that she was so close to him she realized the different, almost stronger smell was coming from him. The aroma wasn’t necessarily bad, but both of her packs raised her to hate wolves. Before she was a werecat she remembered having a dog, but he died a few years before she turned. Her lip sneered unintentionally as she looked at him. “Captain Elcid,” she began and swallowed. Amaco started removing the maps from her bag to show him. “My name is Amaco Hana; I am the navigator for this trip,” she bit her lip to avoid letting a growl escape her throat. Mac adjusted her hood and stared at him, wondering how he would react if she just asked him what he was. With that thought she realized if she knew what he was so easily, of course he knew was she was. Suddenly fear sank in. If there was something different about him, he could be stronger than her. She stepped back slightly, and angled herself so he couldn’t see her face. “When are we leaving?” she asked, all of a sudden feeling very anxious to leave the shore.
