Brief History: In spite of both his parents being human in appearance, Akina was born with a mutation from tainted food his parents had consumed when he was conceived. He looks like a tiger/human hybrid and has all the instincts and physical advantages of a tiger, but also the same level of social skills. Because of his mutation, the “purists” of the settlement forced him and his parents into exile at the farthest ends of the settlement with the other mutants. However, they have recently allowed him to join the humans in hunting as his animal traits make him very skilled in this area. But he is still only 13 and as a kid, when others make fun of him for his looks, it can hurt his feelings.

So begins...

Now there were three more her-but-nots. Nissan was very confused and frightened. They looked not-nice. "Ni-ni-nicesan…" she mumbled, edging back into the forest.

"Th' hell!?" Anselm yelled as Akina nearly crashed into him. His trance broken, he spun around to look at the kid. "Dammit, kid, ya know at times like this, th' weird stuff creeps out and..." he paused, turning to look at some kind of mossy zombie... thing? He then looked over at Akina and Ein quickly and back at the creature, holding out his hands. "Okay, what the hell is that? The hell is it babbling?"

He then heard heavy footfalls, casting a side glance at Dahlia, smirking a bit. "Well, hell, th' gang's all 'ere, it looks," he mutters, letting out a short laugh. His scars still ached for some reason, more than the typical, and it clearly wasn't from this... poison ivy monster. Something else was approaching, humming a melancholy lullaby of some sort, something... nostalgic to the chief. He now readied himself, something etched deep into his very being now quivered. "Kid... ya stir sumthin' big this time... like a house."

"Oh, good, you came to get the lil'un," a voice spoke, Anselm's body seized up, his hair on ends. Bellatroix stands just feet from the party, her eyes scanning the gathered hunters, a smile on her face. She then spots Anselm, glaring directly at her and her smile fades. "Oh," she uttered, holding out her arms to him, causing him to back away without a word. "My, how you've grown, my chile," she said.

"You," Anselm says under his breath, his breathing becoming shallow, his inhuman pupil constricting. Finally drawing his knife, he points it at the woman, his face wrinkled with rage. "Vapor of fevers and nightmares, ya dun' exist!" he yells, his speech growing somewhat incoherent, his eye twitching. But to his shock she somehow broke the distance, now only inches from him. His eyes widen, he never felt her get this close.

"Easy, honeychile," she says, smiling, taking the knife from his hand and with the other touchis his cheek. "Ya remember the cruel fate ya were dealt, the father that hated you, the mother who looked away..? When no love was left, they cast you to the wilds... to me." Without warning, Bellatroix gently reached out and hugged Anselm against her, his body going limp for a moment, his face blanking. "When ya ran, I worried, thought the bit inside ya would eat ya away..." Realization came to him, however, and he pushed the woman away, or more like himself away from her, as she barely budged.

"The... what inside me!? You did this t'me!?" Anselm yells.

"Well, t'be fair, ya did it to yerself, but you were barely awake then," she responds, holding up her arm and forming a shape like a bite mark on it. "Was a scary thing you did... and look at your hair, and that eye... must ahve been awful painful. I'm truly sorry, mon chile..."

"Sorry?! Y-" Anselm began, but something in the distance caught his attention. The sounds from earlier that Bella heard have gotten slowly closer, and they sounded like motors to machinery. He didn't remember any of the city dwellers going off into the wilds, let alone with functioning machinery. Bella herself was distracted by it. He then looked up into a tree, and felt another odd presence nearby, as his senses were no longer fixated on the witch. "Damn, th' hell is with this day..?" he mutters. "As much as I hate it... we... gotta pull back."

Lying in wait in the overgrown bushes nearby was a rather large being or predominately dark coloration. This was Magnus, an ancient mutant from since the near beginning of the cataclysm. The sounds of his breathing were apparent if one were to come close him. His rather large horns were a stark black and white stripes and curved inwards.

As the group of people conversed nearby, their talking began to disturb his slumber and he began to stir. He rose from his grassy patch and revealed his true size and despite the humanoid appearance he was quite large. He let out what could be best described as a throaty grunt as he yawned, revealing razor sharp teeth.

The her-but-nots turned away from Nissan, prompting her to step a little bit closer, still muttering. A very large her-but-not made a noise, and she replicated the noise in her warbly speech.

More and more mutated beasts of the wild began to encroach, along with the city's last Hunter, Ms. Eis, if Ein wasn't mistaken Then something large came crawling out of the woodwork, a creature of nightmares. It was starting to look like a fight was inevitable, this is why she hated the Wilds, this is why humanity was confined like rats in a sinking ship.

"Oh, good, you came to get the lil'un," Ein shot a sidelong glance at Akina, of course he was the reason this... thing was harassing them. Just what was the thing anyways..? It looked like the unholy abomination of all the nearby wildlife. Whatever it was, it spoke like the traders from many towns over.

Anselm began to lose his cool, the creature knew him. Apparently had known him for most of his life, a thought which made Ms. Crowley only slightly suspicious of the strange man who appeared on the outskirts of town and quickly rose to chief Hunter. Anselm always seemed to cause property damage whilst running about, and the thing thought of him like a child. Could he be a spy?

Contemplation were best to be had later, machinery that definitely didn't come from Crow's Wallow could be heard in the distance. Is the city under attack now? It's always the quiet days! As the Chief called to retreat, Ein used her bloody saber to fell a nearby tree. It fell between the group and Bellatroix, creating an impromptu wall.

"Good call Chief, time to go." Turning to run, Ein kept an eye on the newest recruit, ensuring she didn't fall behind.


Astrid needed to get home, but the demon-looking woman had piqued her interest. What is she checking on... She began to follow the lady, sprinting in the direction she'd flown away in. Voices could be heard in the distance, someone screaming.

"The... what inside me!? You did this t'me!?"

The voice sounded familiar, like a hunter from Crow's Wallow, a thought which served to speed up Astrid's stride. Skidding to a halt, she barely avoided running into a zombie. It warbled at her, confused and lost; it almost seemed like a baby. A patch of grass then began to move and tremble, something large with horns and razor sharp teeth began to surface. Astrid grit her teeth and dropped her bag, it would only weigh her down if it came to a fight.

"Hi, I didn't mean to upset. Following friends..." She wanted to say something more, but the words escaped her. She rarely had this many people to talk to in a single day. In the distance, was the sound of motors. The sound wasn't coming from Crow's Wallow, Astrid needed to find somewhere to hide soon, but for now it was best to pay her respects to the other mutants she'd ran into. Perhaps they'd even help her out further down the road.

Nissan cocked her head at the her-but-not who had run into her. She was alright, and when she looked at her feet they'd grown tendrils of some sort, locking her to the ground. "Following... friends...?" Nissan asked, a bit less warbled this time.
Suddenly, a bunch of strange monstrosities popped out of the woods. A large something fell, and most of the her-but-nots retreated away. Nissan turned to the new her-but-not and said, "Friends... wan-dur-off... we wan-dur-off?" she asked. She was beginning to get the hang of this whole speech thingy. She only knew the words from the body language of those who had said it. It was almost like actual speech. Almost.

Akina looked around. More creatures were coming out of the wood work it would seem.

"I was only trying to help, I didn't realize so many creatures would come following. I didn't know that Anselm knew Bell." Akina tried to explain.

Akina had no idea there were others out there like him, or at the very least similar. The nice cat man, and a girl that looked like she was part fox, it was making him feel more and more like he belonged out here in the wilds. The only thing holding him to the colony was his parents really. He had hunting skills, he could defend himself against the creatures of the wilds, but should he do it?

No. Not yet at least. He should help his fellow hunters get back to the safety of the colony without the plant thing or the others following them.

Dahlia had decided that this day was just one of those days now, Anslem tearing a path of destruction after skitters, Akina jumping the wall for some reason, going after Akina and finding that plant thing.... Wait where did that thing go anyhow? She listened for a moment but couldn't hear it's strange breathing noise anywhere nearby but as she was listening it was revealed that the patchwork monster there with them somehow knew the chief. And so the weirdness continues. She thought to herself. What next? A.... Did that big monster count as her jinxing it?

Dahlia's ears flattened back against her head under her helmet. Could the world and this day in general just chill out for a moment? Whrrr ...... " Sigh. Just one thing after another today" She commented softly. Definitely one of those days. Looked like the chief was ordering a retreat....Had the tree been necessary? That creature with the shape-shifty thing was weird but it hadn't shown any hostility so far. Dahlia shook her head of all the contemplative thoughts, they could wait until she was back on the other side of the wall. Dahlia lurched off to a slow and gradual start but soon enough she was thundering along in pace with the rest of them once she got through the inertia her weight brought on.

"You!?" Anselm cried out, catching a sight of Astrid. He was prepared to run, uncharacteristic of him, but this whole thing had him rattled. Matters only acclimated as a scarecrow of a man arose from the thickets, only getting a confused expression from the chief hunter. "Who the hell are you!? Bah! Screw this!" With a hasty retreat, he ran the other direction. It may not have been the most socially... privy reaction, but he wasn't ready to leave matters to risk, as garbage as he may be as a person, he still had to consider his duty to his colony.

"Oh... did I perhaps lay on too heavy? Chil'ren can be so... contrary," Bellatroix said with a shrug and smile. She then looked at the mutants now gathered around, including the newer arrival, the tall man with razor teeth. Her composure had not changed from the first moment she emerged from the swamp, calm and collected as usual, she utters a small chuckle. "My, to feel this lucky, never has an emergence of mine been met with such company. A dryad, a plant, and two with a familiarly voracious aura... a pleasure to meet you all, I am Beau Geste Bellatroix... and," she turned around to the recently awoken Magnus, grinning more widely, her expression becoming more wild. "You all are?"

The sound that had been in the distant became clearer than ever, and distant voices could be heard... laughing. Gunshots could be heard, revving engines. Somebody was having a fun time. Not too much further away a hunting party of men and women, faces decorated in war paint, dressed in makeshift armoring made of sheet metal and vehicle parts were making their approach on patchwork vehicles ranging from trucks to four-wheelers and bikes. They were armed with weapons ranging from duct taped guns and flails made of bike chains, metal folded into crude blades, anything that could be made from scrap at their disposal. They had nets and trained beasts as well, performing their own wild hunt, killing and catching whatever they came across, hooting and hollering all the way.

Savage and hateful, these beasts were human by blood alone, formed years ago by the kind of men that are too mean to die, surviving off savagery against man and beast alike. These were the raiders from Dooperville, the dark side of the new era of humanity.

Dahlia was by no means quiet as she plowed right through most obstacles rather then trying to go around them. Demolishing a rather large boulder that found itself in her path as she reached it. Going through a young tree like it wasn't there. She wasn't very good at turning when going this fast but she did do her best to avoid hitting things when possible though she didn't go out of her way to do so as she wouldn't be able to keep pace if she did. Her steps rumbled and made the ground reverberate in rhythm with her heavy footfalls. sounding for all the world like a charging rhino. She idly took note of the chiefs distress as they went.

At the same time she kept her hearing zeroed in on the sounds of machinery, she had never heard anything quite like these engines before and it sounded like they were moving awfully fast. She began to hear voices that sounded like people. Dahlia slowed down to a stop when it sounded like they were getting really close. Hiding behind the trunk of a large tree that while not completely hiding her made her harder to see with it's shade and such.

The being known as Magnus looked at the group in front of him, a little annoyed that they have awoken him from his rest. He also looked to the one most similar to him, Bellatroix he heard her call herself. "Some have come to know me as Magnus, or at least the humans have come to call me as such." He growled in his speech, barely any optimism in his voice to speak of.

He however eyed the plant-like creature known as Nissan. This creature annoyed him so just by looking at it, he was tempted to just eat them.

Nissan looked at the speaking creature as the other her-but-nots fled from these new her-but-nots. It seemed mean. So did the new her-but-nots too.
Nissan looked back and forth between her her-but-nots, the new ones, and the mean one. She chose the obvious answer; going with the ones that were already friendly(ish) towards her.
She trudged quickly after her, parroting any words they would say in any sort of weird sentence-mesh.
