a character in “The Wargs”, as played by Jynxii

Description

Image
"Faith can move mountains."
- Now You See Me



Image



Full Name
Kathryn Zenta.

Age|
Seventeen years young.

Region|
The Badlands.

Physical Description|
Kitty has always been fragile, even when she was a baby. She was too thin, too sickly. In the Badlands it's hard to get food and fresh water, so growing up there was no walk in the park. Luckily, Kitty's older sister, Ralie was there to protect her and take care of her. Ralie made sure Kitty got enough to eat, and drink. The doctors said Kitty would never live past the age of five... but she did. She grew into a scrawny teenager, with bony limbs and a pale complexion. Kitty took after her father more than her sister did, and grew into a long dark chocolate mane of hair. Her eyes take after their grandmother, a soft hazel green. Like her older sister, Kitty has a triangular face, and soft jaw line with a sharp chin. Kitty doesn't weigh more than 115 pounds as a side effect of her early health problems. When she was younger she was prone to catching colds quickly, but now that she is older her immune system is fairly strong. [For more, see the Photo Gallery.]







Personality
Kitty is a lighthearted girl, despite growing up in darkness and fear. She is incredibly curious about everything, which earned her the nickname Kitty when she was younger. You could say she is the sun where her sister is the moon. Kitty is a people person and loves making new friends and meeting new people. This makes her either naive or stupid, given the world she's growing up in. Her sister is very protective over her, but that only makes Kitty want to branch out more. She yearns to try new things and see new places. Because she has never known a life that was not running, she doesn't seem a problem with the way she and her sister live, but she does wish they could find a place of their own to settle down and stop running... a place where she could make some true, lasting friendships. Above everything else, Kitty is kind. Her kindness has gotten them into worlds of trouble before, because Kitty wears her heart on her sleeve and trusts too easily. The number one person in Kitty's life is her sister, and she strives to make her proud.

Quirks|
~ She plays with her hair when she is nervous, or thinking.
~ Bites her lip when embarrassed (like her sister)
~ Cracks her knuckles when she's bored or frustrated



Likes Dislikes
Her sister Letting her sister down
Writing Being lied to
Learning new things Being treated like a child
Climbing Having to run all the time
Her companion Not knowing who to trust


Relationship with Companion|
Kitty grew up with Ralie taking care of her. For as long as she could remember, they'd been running. The Badlands were rough, but having to leave was worse, because it meant they would never again have somewhere to lay down and call theirs at night. Kitty remembers watching Ralie take off for the fights when she was 12, but Kitty has always been too sick to fight. When Kitty turned thirteen, Ralie told her that it was time she learned to defend herself. The lessons started as writing, mathematics and reading, and melted into fighting and archery. Kitty blames herself for being what she is, and feels bad that her sister has taken it upon herself to dedicate her life to protecting her. "Blood is thicker than water," they say.

Talents|
1. Kitty has learned archery from her sister, though to be honest she is not even half as good at it. She's no good with a sword either, due to her weak arms.

2. She has also developed the gift of Psychometry. Also known as "object reading". It enables her to pick up on psychic impressions (vibrations) left on an object by someone connected with it. She could use an unfamiliar object to reveal secrets about its owner. Kitty is young, though, so she does not yet have control over her developing talent. Sometimes when she is trying to use it; nothing happens. Other times, she could brush against something with her finger tips and get a jolt of information.

3. Due to spending the majority of her life sickly, Kitty has developed a large amount of health knowledge and can bandage, heal, and cure most ailments. (She learned by either personal expierence, or by reading the medical journals she finds on their journeys)

4. Obviously, she is a Warg, and she can see through the eyes of her companion, essentially becoming the animal. Able to control it's movements as if they were her own. While in this state of being, she is unable to move, hear, or see anything happening around her own body.

5. Kitty has taught herself to speak French, and is teaching her sister so that they can talk to one another without other people understanding them. (All thanks to a French dictionary that she found along the road one day, and a week camping with an elderly woman who spoke fluent French.)

6. Newly acquired Healing Touch ability.

The sun rose slowly coloring the sky with an array of pink, orange, and red shades. The air has the clean and brisk scent of a chilly spring morning. The grass is in dew, except in the savanna where the air and ground gets more dry the closer one get’s to the river, and of course in the Desert area, where the sun beats down mercilessly, and it doesn’t cool down until you reach the tundra. In the tropical section of the Forest lands, the air is alive with the sound of exotic birds and insects, in the deciduous part, it’s quieter, but songbirds still chirp with the chattering of squirrels and chipmunks occasionally interrupting their song. In the Badlands, everything is eerily quiet, and in the Mountains nothing is heard save for the sounds of whipping winds that get louder the higher one climbs.

For years Wargs have been on the run, trying to escape the hands of prosecution. Lately, there has been some talk. The people are talking of a safe place. One where Hunter’s cannot harm a Warg. It rests in the middle of the continent. It sounds like the best bet to those on the run, those in the Desert will travel north, those in Mountains; east, if placed in the Forests or Prairies; west, and those in the Badlands; south.

Wargs are not the only one’s aware of this place though. Hunters from around the region know of its location and the race begins. Survival being the ultimate goal.

"Mom...no.. mom...p..mama..." Kitty tossed restlessly in her sleep, mumbling under her breath as Blue whimpered quietly, kicking in his sleep. The forest was alive already, but the whispers of wildlife went unnoticed by the young Warg as she slept with her companion. Suddenly she jerked awake, breathing heavily. Her sister had stomped out their fire before night had fallen. Kitty knew it was for the best. It was too easy for hunters to find you if you were a beacon in the darkness. Blue rolled over, letting out a sneeze as he came to as well. "Same dream again," she sighed, reaching over and rubbing the pup on the head. "Did you see where Ralie went? Sleeping, too, huh? Well... let's go get cleaned up."

With a small sigh, Kitty stood and made her way to the wide stream her sister had them camp beside the night before. After a quick glance around, for safety reasons, Kitty stripped out of her clothes and dipped herself into the water, sinking in. The water was extremely brisk, and goosebumps rushed up her arms. A fish went slipping past her leg, causing her to squeal and flail about in the water. Blue sat idly on the land, cocking his head to the side. Her squeals bubbled into laughter as she splashed at the pup. "Oh, hush you! She was still giggling to herself when she caught sight of Ralie walking back to their camp, since the stream was so close by. "Blue, go get Ralie," she asked, quieting down from her giggles. She loved the water.

Blue stood and jogged over to her sister who had brought a delicious smelling breakfast back from her hunt. A round of happy hips, tail chases, and flicking his head in the direction of the stream later, Blue was content to sit by the fire Ralie had built again once the sun was up. She's in the water again, Blue would have said as he flopped down onto his paws, enjoying the warmth of the fire. The shadows of the trees this early in the morning allowed for a cool breeze, and after a night of sleeping without a fire, Blue was happy to be next to something warmer than Kitty's tiny frame.

Meanwhile, Kitty was nose-deep in the stream, enjoying the slippery feel of the rocks underneath her. She was having a great time, until the sound of a twig snapping caught her attention. It wasn't coming from the camp, so it couldn't have been her sister. Fear froze her to the spot, and she sunk as deep as she could in the murky water, only her hazel hues and dark hair above the froth of the nearby rapids. A flash of color came and went, and Kitty could feel her body trembling in the water. Should she call out? Should she make a run for it? Was she over-reacting? Was it a hunter? An animal? Not knowing twisted an ugly feeling in her gut. Blue... She was suddenly regretting sending her companion away. She felt vulnerable and caught. She had forgotten her sister's number one rule: to not trust anything. Even a welcoming stream.

Ralie



Ralie woke up first, and then cursed herself for falling asleep. She would've woken up Kitty... okay, maybe not, but she should have at least woken Blue, if she had found the sense to do so. Taking a peek at the fire she sighed in relief as she remembered that she had stomped it out the night before, the minute Kitty had fallen asleep. She knew that Kitty wasn't afraid of the dark or anything, or at least wouldn't admit to it if asked, but Ralie's sister fell asleep easier with the warmth of the fire, so she let it burn as long as it took for her sister to drift off. With a sigh, Ralie strung her bow and checked how many arrows she had left. It took her only a second to count, Fuck, only five. She would have to make more, but first breakfast. She tossed a glance over her shoulder at her sister's sleeping form and came to the conclusion that Blue would wake up. The wolf had an incredible knack at sensing danger, and were any to arise his high pitched yips would alert her.

She swam across the river and entered the dense forest, breathing in the air around her, and looking to the canopy and ground for something she could track. Birds made their calls and other creatures stirred in the foliage. She smiled to herself, remembering what used to be her home before her family's banishment. Kitty would have no memory of it, being one of the few children born of the Badlands, but she reveled in the sounds and smells, that filled her with familiarity. Finally, her dark brown eyes found what they had been searching for, tracks. The cloven hooves of elk. She sank fluidly into a crouching position, moving slowly, following the tracks and occasional droppings. There were four of them, two full grown, one adolescent, and one baby. After tracking for a few more feet she found them, munching happily on grass.

She surveyed the situation. The three older elk stood closely together, but the young one was off wandering, making it an easy kill. She pulled the bow's string taut, aiming for the little elk, but stopped herself. Kitty would kill me if I fed her a baby animal. She turned her arrow onto one of the larger ones, the male. Aiming for it's temple, she loosed the arrow. It found it's mark in a second, the elk collapsed onto it's knees dead before hitting the ground. The other three lept swiftly into the trees.

Using a bit of rope she carried, she hung the elk and began to gut and clean it. Doing the dirty work after she killed it ensured that she wouldn't be exposing her sister to the disgusting sight and foul odor. She knew Kitty wouldn't care, but Ralie preferred to keep it away from her. She cut off as much meat as she could carry, cutting smaller strips of the flesh for Blue. She was greeted by the little wolf as soon as she made it back to the camp, his tail wagging excitedly and yipping expectantly. She tossed him some of the strips and looked for her sister. She could understand why her sister loved it so much, it was so different than anything she had experienced before. She wanted to call her back in but decided against it, letting her sister be happy, even if it was only for a brief moment. She started another fire and began to cook the meat.

Ralie looked up to check on her sister again, only to see that she had sunk low into the water. Her stomach dropped and she regarded the opposite bank warily. She reached automatically for her bow and pulled the string taut, waiting for whatever scared her sister, to show itself so she could kill it.

Kane sat beneath the thinning cover of the tree line that bordered the wide expanse of the prairies. He had enjoyed watching the sun rise, a minor pleasure and not one he indulged in by choice. Via was particularly irritable in the morning, rising early with an unquenchable desire to interrupt Tyron's shallow slumber. Having brushed her of and sent the energetic eagle away to fetch her morning meal he didn't bother to do much except watch the sky and the horizon. He hadn't heard Rhys wake before he had left, although that was not much of a sign. Despite the clarity in which he viewed the world Tyron had become accustomed to his friend, much in the same way one would get used to the sights and sound of a town. His fellow Warg was the only one that could take Kane by surprise. Which was acceptable by the young man, he would trust his friend with his life and knew that the feeling would be returned.

With a drowsy sigh and a stretch Tyron stood. Welcoming the morning and yet another day before turning to stride back beneath the shade of the trees. Today was going to be a warm day, thankfully the forest offered protection from the sun as well as prying eyes. It was somewhat sad that the prairies were so empty, they were the epitome of freedom. Proud expanses of grass as far as the eye could see, even his well developed vision. Of course there were a few villages and towns out there but it wasn't so different to a desert in Tyron's mind. A few oases where life is suitable. After all, grass on it own has little to offer. Certainly for people like him who need to hide it isn't particularly inviting. Not that he didn't mind the forest, it was beautiful in its own way, specially for those who could hear the layers upon layers of life. He crouched next to a quaint stream, not a small one since it rose to his shins and was probably deeper further up. Dipping his hands in the cool water and splashing it across his face, moments of calm like this could never be fully enjoyed. The slick tickling sensation as the liquid dripped from his sun tanned features. He took a sip, it was even remarkably clean for a stream running through the forest. Yet he did notice a peculiar taste among the other unpleasantries, one that flowed down the running water. It was usual to have the tastes and scents of animals in forest water, but this one stood out and concerned him slightly.

Refreshed but not relaxed he continued his trek back to the campsite he shared with Rhys. Having settled a safe distance from the stream they were pretty much cloaked by the trees should anyone visit the water source. Via would be back soon and if the other two were awake they could eat whatever bounties the spring brought them and continue. Usually they didn't travel this far from their 'territory' and it was with caution. The rumors of a safe heaven for their kind was a little suspicious and perhaps too good to be true. Still, if it was true the possibility of a peaceful life was far too enticing. Regardless, that wasn't their immediate concern. As far as Tyron could tell there was no settlements nearby, yet without a doubt he had tasted human in the water. As disturbing as it sounds, he deals with it. Having such attuned senses can be a curse in more ways then one. It wasn't just a trace either, the stream was probably deeper before it reached his campsite. Deep enough for someone to bathe in it seemed, but who would was the more intriguing detail.

Kitty heard her sister come up, the familiar sound of her drawn bow a comfort. Terror caused her lip to tremble as she remained frozen in the stream. Just then, a flock of birds took off from a near by bush, causing her to sigh in relief. It was just some birds. She slowly let out a the breath she had been holding and turned to look at her sister sheepishly. "False alarm," she said weakly, offering a shy smile. Blue trotted up behind Ralie, looking at his companion. Kitty slowly swam over to the shore, casting a glare over her shoulder at the flock that had taken to the skies. That's when she smelled it; her sister was cooking. "Oh, man, Ralie.. that smells so good.." Kitty dried herself off by laying out in the growing sunlight as Ralie finished cooking.

Blue sat at Ralie's feet, tail thrashing back and forth. He watched her expectantly, licking his chomps every now and again. After she was dry enough to put her clothes back on, Kitty joined her sister by sitting cross legged by the fire. "So... do you think it's true, Ralie? Do you... I mean... Could there seriously be a place where we don't have to run anymore? A safe place?" Kitty gently toyed with her hair, braiding it and unbraiding it over and over again as she pondered over her own question. "A city of Wargs would be pretty cool," she mused, mostly talking to herself. Blue looked over to her, cocking his head to the side. Kitty looked to him, smiling at his cuteness. "That is where we're going, right?"

Kane lent his elbows on his knees and rested his chin on his hands. Taking up the typical thinking 'man pose'. The possibility that the stranger was hunter had crossed his mind first. After all that was the most probable, they had the best reasons to be out here. The pair of them had experience from some previous run ins and were right to be cautious. Between his kind and the Hunters it's kill or be killed, hunt or be hunted. A vicious circle. As much as he hated to admit it, Rhys's idea was almost necessary. He smiled as he looked up to Jester's giggling. What a perfect world it would be if his friends could live in peace.

"I think we should." Tyron announced. "We need to know. Specially if this person is following us."

He left off the unspoken agreement. If the Hunter was following them they would have to deal with him. Or her. Although a female was rarer they couldn't assume a woman wouldn't have some private vendetta against Wargs either. If it existed the certainly couldn't lead a Hunter to this supposed haven.

"There is always the chance that they're no one special. Just some hermit or villager out on a hike. And tt may be a long shot but it could be someone like us, travelling to the same place. That would be something wouldn't it? After six years we find another one like us. Of course if that were so its natural you'll want to kill him. Must be habit."

He chuckled at the ridiculousness of the idea and the memories dredged up. Never once did he hold that attack against his friend. Often enough he brought it up for a good laugh together. Yet he was letting his hope get away with him, those chances were minuscule. His laugh had none of the hyena's spice, and it dissipated after a while. Its difficult to try and keep things lively when Jester and Via seemed so much better at it all. He left his input to the discussion at that and stood to go pack up what few belonging he had and to pick up the wooden staff that served as his weapon.





A flash of golden-brown plumage dropped through the sky like a missile. At the last moment Via spread her wings and sweep upon her prey. Talons latched into the unfortunate wood pigeon as the others scattered in terror. Having just been disturbed from their hiding into the path of a ruthless predator. The next few flaps by the eagle struggled a little, trying to climb with the extra weight. She didn't go much higher, instead aiming for a branch near her catch just under the canopy. Settling on the tree overlooking the stream she began to ravage the corpse. She had chosen this position deliberately, not having missed the pair that provided her with breakfast. Her yellow eyes watching them even as he ate. The down grey and brown feathers escaping and drifting down into the water and flowing away.

Ralie


When the birds burst from the trees, she sighed in relief and relaxed her bow arm. Kitty turned to apologize with a sheepish smile and Ralie smiled back with a shrug. It was a non-issue, Ralie was equally as skittish as her sister. She left Kitty alone to dry off, returning to the meat. Blue sat at her feet following her hands as she handled their breakfast.
"Be patient," she scolded the little wolf, and after a few more moments she finally relented tossing him a piece.

She took a few bites, but was unable to keep going, her stomach rolled uncomfortably. The rustle had just been birds... but she couldn't shake the feeling that they were being watched, and her instincts weren't usually wrong. Something was observing them. What it was she had no clue.

"So... do you think it's true, Ralie? Do you... I mean... Could there seriously be a place where we don't have to run anymore? A safe place?" Ralie turned to her sister and opened her mouth to respond, and shut it just as quickly. She had heard the rumors and had written them off just as quickly. It could be lies, tricks told by hunters a place to rally them up.
"A city of Wargs would be pretty cool," Kitty mused more to herself and Blue, and Ralie grimaced. She could see how amazing that would seem to Kitty. How much of an amazing opportunity that would be, but was it worth the risk? "That is where we're going, right?" Fuck. Ralie turned her face up to smile at her sister, making the decision before she could talk herself out of it. "Yeah, Kitty, that's where we're going."

There wasn't all that much to pack up. Some basic supplies and utensils and it didn't take the pair of them much longer than a few minutes. Living on the move caused one to become rather efficient in these details. Jester was no help, what could a hyena do. Via wouldn't be able to anything either even if she was there. Kane didn't mind her absence, it would be impossible for them to cover so much ground that she couldn't find them. He was just curious as to why she was taking longer then he would expect.

"You ready Rhys?"






Having cleaned up most of her meal and leaving her beak darkened by the blood. Picking the last strands of flesh from the corpse. She left the corpse on the branch, there wasn't much left to catch the attention of any scavengers. Although not many scavengers would wander near the figure of a golden eagle. Via wasn't the biggest of her species around but she she still out scaled pretty much any other bird out there. A matter of pride on her part.

After cleaning a few feathers off her golden plumage she prepared herself to greet her new friends. Via was an assertive and perceptive bird. People would find that at to their own cost although except she didn't really interact with any humans other than Kane and Rhys. If they could be called humans, regardless that number was about to go up. Spreading her wings she leapt from the branch, causing a flutter in the leaves. She landed heavily at the edge of the pairs campsite. Tucking her wings into her sides and just watching, ready to flee.

Her golden eyes wandered over the three there. Blue certainly caught her attention, the same way Jester did when she met him six years ago. From the eyes of an animal, a companion stood out from the wild beasts. Where there was a companion there must be their partner. That wasn't much of Via's concern. She simply waited for their response, waiting for her new friends.






The gentle burbling of the stream was nearby, nothing particular about that. Almost seeming a peaceful day with two young men
strolling in the calm weather in the shade of the trees. Appearances could be deceiving of course. You wouldn't think that Rhys and Kane were hated men. You also wouldn't expect the hyena following them either. Tyron picked his path wisely, heading for harder ground with less chance of leaving tracks. It was near on impossible to actually prevent any signs of their passing ultimately but at least he tried.

Kitty nodded as her sister confirmed her thoughts, still toying with her hair. She was only distracted from her task by Blue's sudden whine. She looked up, her hues going directly to her companion. What was with him? He was staring intently across the trees to the river. Just then, the trees rustled around, grabbing Kitty's attention. A large bird- no, an eagle, had landed on the branch a few feet above them. Kitty watched the animal quietly for a moment, as the golden bird of prey stared back. "Ralie," Kitty said quietly and carefully, "do you see that?"

She didn't want to stand up and scare the bird away, so instead she just continued to stare. Blue, on the other hand, had slowly belly crawled closer to the animal, tail wagging as he attempted to stalk the bird. "Blue," Kitty hissed, jerking her head towards her companion, "No." Kitty narrowed her eyes at the pup, causing him to stop and sit on his haunches. Blue whimpered a little, glancing between the majestic animal and his companion. Kitty glared at him, silently shaking her head, begging him mentally to not try it. Blue glared back at her, upset at Kitty for ruining his fun and unknown to him; probably saving his life. With a huff, he flopped on the ground in defeat. "It's an eagle... Gosh, it's so pretty... What do you think it's doing out here? You don't think it could.. I mean, could it really be a...?" Companion. She couldn't bring herself to say the word aloud, for fear of someone, or anyone for that matter, overhearing and instantly knowing what she was.

She glanced between the beautiful eagle and her sister, hope filling in her chest. She wouldn't be alone anymore. Not that she didn't love having her sister and Blue, but... it would be so wonderful to meet another person like her. Someone who understood the pain she went through having to move all the time, and being the reason her loved one had to move too. Or would they hate her? What if, like the hunters, the other Wargs (if there were any left) would resent her for being what she is, because they might resent themselves? A pang of worried settled in her stomach, a trait developed over the years of following after her cautious and paranoid sister. Then, because she was still her outgoing and fun loving self deep down, the feeling was gone. Instantly, she was once again excited and hopeful that the bird of prey who looked so out of place was not out of place at all; but exactly where his (or.. was it a her?) companion wanted it to be.

Kitty smiled warmly up at the animal and looked to Ralie. "Toss it a piece of meat, Ralie, see if it's hungry?" Kitty was too entranced by the golden pelt of the predator to notice that faint traces of blood on the beak. It's so beautiful...

Ralie


Ralie followed her sister's eyes to the large golden bird. It was perched regally on a branch, it's sharp eyes observing them carefully.
"Toss it a piece of meat, Ralie, see if it's hungry?" Ralie nodded, grabbing one of the scraps she had saved for Blue. She stood up and walked slowly towards the bird, calculating it's threat level, while admiring it's beauty. Talons and beak are the sharpest most deadliest areas... and damn, those are some big ass talons. She shivered at the thought of those babies tearing into her flesh, but she held the meat up higher, showing the bird that she wasn't throwing a weapon. It cocked it's head, observing the meat and then Ralie tossed it in the birds direction. It caught it easily with a tilt of it's head and swallowed it whole.
"Damn..." she whispered with a smile on her face. She'd always considered the idea of getting a pet while she and Kitty traveled about, but Blue was enough for both of them to handle. Another pet would just get in the way. Then she realized something.
"Kitty... if you see this bird leave at any time, tell me. As soon as it leaves, we need to get out of here. If that bird belongs to a hunter, it will lead its master to our location." She turned to her sister, making her swear it before meeting the gaze of the bird again. "If I see you flap away, I will shoot you down before you reach your destination." she whispered, glaring at it before rejoining her sister around the fire.

Rhys



Rhys kept his at least two feet between him and Kane as the traveled through the forest. He tried to follow his steps as closely as he could, the less foot prints the less obvious they would be to a tracker... at least an amateur one. Jester worked a circle around them. He liked the fact Jester was a scavenger, it meant he would kill less animals when they traveled. This meant less evidence that they were around. He found that was what survival seemed to be about. Less. Talking less, making less noise, and killing less, meant more time. With a sigh he found himself thinking back to what life had been like before he had to leave. Silence hadn't really been his forte. He was cocky and loud, bordering on obnoxious. When he had first learned of his Warg powers he didn't keep them a secret. He shared it with his friends to get their fear and admiration, he shared it with girls to get them in his bed. It all took a turn for the worse about a month in. He had started to develop more psychic powers than simply melding his mind with Jester's. His brain was suddenly filling with information, it had made it hard to think of anything else than the things he was learning. This made it almost impossible for him to speak, unless he was blurting out something he was learning. He slowly became the town outcast. People chased and beat him just for shits and giggles. They threw stones at him and Jester. They taunted him with their normalcy. When word reached his village about the outlawing of Wargs, everyone was more than happy to oblige. They chased him and Jester out with fire and weapons.

He had been nervous about the idea of opening his mind to such a wide range before, but as they were getting closer, so he decided to give it a shot. He stopped and quickly pulled off his foot coverings allowing his bare feet to absorb the informations from his surroundings and feed them to his brain. After a moment of searching he finally found what he had been looking for. The girl Kane had tasted, but she wasn't alone. There was another girl. Sisters. And an animal... the one's pet... a wolf pup. His head began to ache so he closed the information off once more. He hadn't learned too much, but he knew how many they were facing. Tapping Kane on the shoulder he whispered his new-found information, "Two girls and a wolf pup, we've got another forty-five minutes until contact." He smiled, assuring himself that Kane and him were more than capable to handle the situation at hand.

Kane nodded, confirming Rhys's information. Picking up traces of scent from the atmosphere. They might even be in view if it wasn't for the forest in the way. Not that he was complaining about the cover. It was loose enough that someone might spot them from the sky but down here you would have to be pretty close to actually see someone. His eyesight didn't really help all that much. In this situation the pair of them complimented each other's capabilities perfectly.

"I can smell the wood smoke from here. Seems like they were cooking recently, with the wind direct..."

He broke off suddenly, into silence. Although it wasn't actually silence for him, through the wind and ambiance of wild life he could pick up what sounded like the screech of an eagle. He wasn't mistaken either, having grown up with Via he could recognize the call of an eagle anywhere. He sighed, guess she wanted his attention. Surely she couldn't have lost them. He didn't harbor any ill will against her, essentially family.

"Damn bird. You probably didn't hear it but Via is up ahead being noisy. No idea what she is up to. Maybe she spotted the two girls."

With that he set his staff into the ground and took a moment to close his eyes. Stretching his mind out towards his friend and companion. When he opened them again his vision was as clear as it would be if he focused. The images that he received weren't his own though. Although when he spoke it was for Rhys. Via's beak that was unsuited for human sounds anyway even if he could take command of it. Surely the bird was being a pain deliberately.

"Oh shit Via. Really?"






Even after having a meal Via had no problem snaffling up the tidbit tossed to her. She liked her friends already. Although they didn't like her. She was very disappointed after the younger human stoped the pup from coming closer. That would've been proof she was trustworthy and Blue was going to be her friend. Then again the little wolf pup was a little small to play with, not without accidentally hurting him. She would wait for Kane, he would find her eventually and they would all have new friends. Of course for an adult bird she was remarkably naive in some ways. Completely unaware or ignoring how Rhys and Tyron would respond to another encounter with humans.

Yet she still didn't take threats kindly, while the buttering up had got her feeling rather pleasant. She was a beautiful bird, and it was nice of them to notice. Of course she had no intent on leaving. Instead she hopped to the side, watching Taralie slightly aggressively and cautiously. Half screeching, half hissing at her. Via wasn't afraid of a human, at least she would't be if she let her pride get a hold but arrows were scary things to a flying creature. The screech wasn't all that loud. It wouldn't carry particularly far, but it was far enough for Kane's ears to catch unknown to her.






"Two girls and a wolf cub. They look really similar, probably sisters since the eldest isn't old enough to be the mother."

Tyron confirmed when his senses fully withdrew to his body. He sighed, even he had no clue what went through Via's bird brain. She may be more intelligent then the usual animal but the pranks she pulled bordered on stupid. At least to his mind, he was always one to be sure of what he was doing. He even took a small guilty pleasure in knowing more then others and operating fine while others were confused. Via was a sort of anchor, a touch of realism to dampen any sense of superiority. That was a good thing he had to admit to himself, otherwise he would feel like taking responsibility for the world, to exaggerate slightly.

"I have no idea why she is there but Via is right in front of them. So far it doesn't look like anything is happening. They're focused on her and from what I figure we're coming in from the back. The oldest looks tough and I spotted a pair of bows with them. She may be the hunter. Although why her sister is tagging along I can't imagine. The girl looks like she couldn't handle a fight."

With further reconnaissance completed Kane started off again. Slightly less cautious about tracks, instead he was listening to what Rhys had to say, if anything. Now they had a good grip on where the targets were he agreed with Rhys. A pair of young men, a hyena and a eagle were more then a match. Again it lit the doubts about whether the eldest girl was a hunter or not.

Rhys



Rhys nodded in understanding to the situation. It was simple. They already had the advantage, they had eyes on them, they were coming from the back, and Via, while observing was also distracting them. He couldn't have asked for a better situation. They finally reached the pair, still invisible behind the foliage. He pointed at the older girl and waited for Kane's nod in approval. He melded his mind through Jester. Through the hyena's eyes he looked at the little wolf pup. Jester growled in understanding, he pulled out of the hyena, nodded at Kane once more, and in one fluid motion he pulled out his knife, lept out of the tree's and wrapped his arm around the girl's neck, pressing the point of the blade into her throat.
"Kitty! Run!" she screamed out and the other girl bolted, and the girl he held hostage elbowed him in the stomach, surprised he released her.
She whipped a knife off her belt, there was a spot of blood running down her throat. She snarled him and launched. He defended himself from each of her blows, but finally she caught him, slicing him in the ribs.
"Fuck! You bitch!" he growled.
She launched at him again, and he grabbed her arm, twisting it behind her back. She screamed and it distracted him from the constant task of keeping his mind closed. It opened and information began searing through his brain.
Taralie Zenta, age 20, sister, Kitty Zenta, Blue. Fear.

He finally shut his mind and he pinned her to the ground. The adrenaline was wearing off, his side was killing him and he could feel the blood dripping down his side, soaking through his tattered shirt and pants. He looked around, Jester had the little wolf pup cornered, but wasn't in a fighting crouch. Instead he sat head cocked, staring intently at the pup, who was yipping and whining. It was like Jester was listening to him. Kane and the younger girl were nowhere to be found.
"Kane! What's your status?" he called out.
The girl struggled against him, and he pulled her arm tighter behind her back. She cried out again. He wanted to stop hurting her, in fact, he should probably kill her, but he couldn't bring himself to do it. Instead flipped her over and hit her Highest Spring, Spirit Tower Gate, Winnower Gate, and Sea of Blood pressure points, temporarily paralyzing her. She glared at him, and she began yelling at him, but he didn't pay attention. He didn't know if she knew where to hit him, but she got him good in his subclavian vein, it attached to the jugular vein and he was loosing a fair amount of blood. Kane had his medical supplies. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Pulling off his shirt he tore a strip off, wadded the rest against the wound and tied it in place. He slowed his breathing, but his vision was starting to redden.
"Kane!" he yelled out, but it wasn't as loud as he needed it to be, he turned to Jester, who had abandoned cornering the wolf, and stared at his human companion with concern. "Jester. Get Kane. Now."

Ralie



Ralie and her sister were sitting by the fire. They should probably move. The bird was freaking her out a bit, but they had been here for at least a week and had been without any hunting incident that long. They should leave, but for once Ralie was comfortable. She missed the feeling and selfishly wanted to maintain the feeling as long as she could. The bird whistled and she heard a growl. She assumed it was Blue, but then she heard leaves rustle and an arm wrapped around her neck, pressing a knife into her throat. It stung as it cut into her skin. It took her only seconds to react.
"Kitty! Run!" she screamed at her sister. She didn't wait any longer and elbowed her attacker in the stomach.
He released her and she pulled out her own blade, attacking before he could. He was bigger and probably stronger than her, but her small stature meant she was faster, but each time she threw fist or blade at him, he deflected it. Finally, she landed an attack, slicing his upper rib, blood spurted across her hand, but she ignored it's sickeningly warm presence on her skin.
"Fuck you, bitch!" he snarled at her.
Grinning, she went at him again, but he caught her arm and painfully twisted it behind her back. Forgetting all precaution, she screamed in pain, tears pricking at the corner of her eyes. For a moment it was like he just froze up and after a few minutes he pushed her to the ground.
"Kane! What's your status?" he shouted. Wait... there were two of them. Shit... Kitty.
She had to get to her sister, and tried to escape, struggling against his grip, but he only pulled her arm further across her back and she cried out in pain again. Then he flipped her around and abruptly hit a few spots on her arms, torso, and legs. She felt as though water was spreading through her body, filling them with an impossible weight, and keeping her pinned to the ground.
"What the fuck have you done to me? Who are you? Why are you attacking us? So help me god, as soon as I can move again I'm going to kill you! I swear to God!"
She waited for him to respond, but she saw out of the corner of her eye that he was trying desperately to treat the wound she had inflicted. His side was pretty much covered in blood. "Kane!" he called out the name again. A hyena ran to his side and he commanded it to find his friend before promptly falling to the ground.

It almost went off without a fault. Kane was in a position to grab and hold the younger girl while Rhys had his knife ready to stop the older one doing anything. Unfortunately for the attack pair Via chose to ruin things for Kane. Had Tyron grabbed Kathryn and threatened Ralie things could have been figured out without a full on fight. Although that was naive to think. In the first place they had come here with the intent to kill. He never even managed to grab the girl though. He got a face full of feathers, Via buffering him with her broad wings. Causing him to falter even as Ralie screamed and Kitty ran. He even got an accidental talon slice lightly across his cheek, the last straw.

"What the hell Via!"

He shouted in frustration, shoving her away. He had no time for whatever she was up to. He would apologies later, he wasn't even angry about the scratch. Oh it stung like hell, it felt like the side of his face was burning away. He'd experienced worse, unfortunately his sense of touch also applied to pain. Usually he could suppress it but he didn't have the time to focus on that. His adrenaline had started pumping anyway as he rushed after Kitty. The world didn't blur as he moved, it refined itself. He could see the a tiny dew drop on a leaf as he rushed past it. Every rise and fall of the forest floor and root protruding out. It was not struggle for him to simply dance over the objects. His feet picking their way exactly to give him firm footing. Like a cat chasing its prey.

He could hear the crashing as Kitty tried to run from him. He didn't make as much noise, dodging anything that intruded on his pursuit. From behind he could hear the snarls of Jester and the sounds and agitated shouts of the two combatants. Above, through the rustling of the leaves he could hear the air beneath his companion's wings. Right now he didn't concern himself with what Via was up though. His doubts had grown after all that had happened and now he hoped, of only a little. Rounding a tree he reached out and grabbed on Kitty's clothing. Shoving his stuff in the ground as leverage he yanked her back, halting her motion and sending her stumbling backwards to the ground. He proceeded to press the one and a half meter length of wood on her chest. Pinning her down.

"Kane!"

He heard through the treeline, back in the direction of their camp. Rhys sounded in pain for sure and weaker. Partly angry, mostly scared now for his friend Kane pressed his attention to his captive.

"Girl."

He snapped, shifting the staff off her. He pulled off threatening well since he was slightly agitated. Although his heart wasn't in the threat he certainly sounded and looked like he was. Normally he be larger then most people. From the ground that was probably emphasized.

"Get up now. We're going back. Don't try to run because I'll just catch you again and then when I drag you back I'll make your sister suffer. If she is still alive."

Before Kitty could fully comprehend what was happening, she was running. The shrill desperation in her sister’s voice prompted her to take off like a bat out of hell without questioning. Hunters! A large man, with strange straw like hair in bizarre coils was bulleting after her, but to her surprise the golden angel of an eagle swooped off the branch across from them and blocked his path. She mentally praised the animal as she took off through the woods like an agile rabbit. She was fast for her build, but sloppy. Her foot would catch soft patches in the ground, slowing her down, and the leaves were slippery underfoot. Her heart thundered in her chest, making it difficult to breathe. She jerked behind a tree, sure that she would be able to duck away and hide, but just as soon as she thought she would be free; something grabbed the back of her shirt. The sheer force of her own velocity suddenly being stopped knocked her backwards, causing her to land with a hard thud into the earth.

The wind was knocked from her chest, and the stranger’s face was blurry in her vision. Her mind instantly went to her sister, causing her eyes to glaze over as she shifted her vision into Blue’s scared hues. The wolf pup was staring down the muzzle of a hyena. The animal didn’t appear to be aggressive, only sitting there staring at Blue, as Blue barked madly at the creature as if trying to explain something. Her sister was hurt. She was on the ground. No! Kitty jerked her vision back to herself, finding herself pinned to the ground with a staff. The weight was painful, crushing her delicate ribcage. Bruises would bloom within the hour for sure. She reached up to try and shove the staff away, but the second her skin made contact her mind was jolted with flashes of information.

Kane|| Father. Grandparents. Run! Run! || It’s all my fault. Won’t cause you pain. || Pain. Loss. Fight. Friendship. Via.

“If she is still alive,” the man, Kane, was saying. Tears swelled in Kitty’s eyes, his old emotions still rushing over her, mixed with her own regarding her current situation. The staff had been removed from her chest, so he must have been ordering her to go back to the camp. It was just then that Blue joined her size, snarling darkly at Kane despite the man’s obvious size over the pup. The hyena must have let him go. Before Kane could hurt her friend, Kitty swooped down and scooped Blue up into her arms, crying out, “Don’t hurt him!” “It’s okay , Blue, it’s okay,” she whispered to the animal, glaring darkly at Kane. “You’ve got me, now let my sister go, hunter,” she spat, glaring up at him. “She isn’t a Warg, so call off your dog and just get it over with!”

Her words sounded firm, despite her shaking knees and arms. Blue continued to growl darkly from her arms, but Kitty held him close for fear of the hunter striking out at him with the staff. Maybe Blue would be able to out run him, if she couldn’t. Kitty’s eyes never left his, but she tried her best to use her peripherals to spot a soft place to toss the pup so that he could get away if Kane lunged at her. She didn’t make a move to do as he said, which would probably anger him, but she didn’t care. He was hurting her sister, even if it wasn’t directly by his hand. Obviously he was the head hunter, since it was the other one that was calling for him and not the other way around. Kitty took a slight step back, debating on her choices, though she knew that they were slim. Kane was bigger, and just as fast, with steadier footing than her. She’d never make it to the stream in time.

You had to be kidding him. Tears. As if he didn't feel like a monster already, she looked absolutely pitiful. Hopes rose slightly as he heard what he assumed to be Blue's light body approaching behind him with Jesters heavier paw prints a little further back. Chasing the pup maybe but how did it get away in the first place. Already the rush had died down and Kane's senses were back to 'normal' for him. He didn't bother himself with juvenile canine, instead he moved to intercept Jester who arrived soon afterwards. He was aware that Kitty had scooped up her friend, companion or pet. The exact details weren't know, except obviously Blue was precious to her. He concerns were ultimately for his friend. If Rhys got badly wounded and these people didn't turn out to be threats then that would be stupid beyond belief and Kane would have failed.

Quickly Kane slipped the satchel from his back, he probably shouldn't have gone off after the younger one. She expected Rhys to be able to handle himself. Then again he didn't expect Via to deliberately try and stop him. He looped the bag containing what few resources they had around Jester's neck, securing it so it wouldn't fall off. It was obvious enough to Tyron what had happened, since he was aware of the how the situation developing as he was chasing his target. He crouched and lent in close to Jester, whispering.

"Get this back to Rhys. I'll be there as soon as I can."

He then gave Jester a light push back, encouraging the hyena on its way. He couldn't quite trust Via right now and by extension, Jester. They were acting up and he had a good suspicion as to way, specially with the way Kathryn cherished the wolf pup. With Jester loping off, back to Rhys with a little concerned whine, Kane stood from his crouch and turned his attention to the girl. She was on her feet now, unsteady, with the pup nestled safely in here arms. She was trying to act tough, although she probably knew the act wasn't fooling anyone. To her credit she sounded like she could back up her words with pure spite. What she said was somewhat surprising. It didn't surprise him that the girl would sell herself out to save her sister, he would do the same. What stunned him for a moment It was the admission that she was just like him and this time he was the uncaring predator.

He'd had his suspicions but he still didn't expect them to be realized. Kitty didn't seem to properly realize his pause, perhaps thinking of something else of not seeing a human reaction in this hunter. his shoulders slumped slightly but he managed a smirk at the irony of it all. Tyron dropped the aggressive image. Relaxing, if only a bit.

"So you're admitting that you are one? That probably wouldn't protect your sister. Take it from me, some Hunters don't see the difference between Wargs and those that shelter them."

The grin broke into a short laugh. So he was right. After six years they run into their own kind and just get into a fight. Maybe he ha jinxed that whole thing or maybe he was Rhys just had bad luck in those sorts of things.

"Firstly, Jester isn't a dog. He's a hyena and he isn't mine. Secondly, I don't need to call him off anything. He probably realized before we did. I'm sorry I didn't notice sooner. You're safe now, I would never knowingly hurt my own kind. Can we talk more on the way back?"

Ralie



Ralie was still paralyzed, although, she wasn't exactly sure how much time had passed. The guy who had attacked her was laying beside her, his face pale and a hand glued to his injured side. She didn't think that she had actually injured him all that badly, but his facial expression when he had been treating the wound proved otherwise. He had his eyes closed and was taking deep breaths. Okay, so she hadn't punctured his lungs... although she would have known if she had. In her experience hunting, as soon as a lung was punctured the animal would cough up foamy blood, this guy wasn't coughing up anything, it was just a flesh wound that was bleeding... a lot.
But why did she feel bad? He had attacked her, not the other way around. He was the Hunter... but... if had been a Hunter, she would be dead. He had the upper hand, he could have killed her in an instant, but instead, he made it so she couldn't move. This made absolutely no sense. Unless... unless this feeling of being paralyzed was permanent... It couldn't be... how was she supposed to protect Kitty and Blue. What kind of asshole only paralyzed his victims instead of killing them?
"Hey... you!" she waited until he turned his head and he opened one of his eyes lazily, he didn't say anything, just stared, waiting for her to say more. "Is... Is what you did permanent?" she asked him, and he stared, as if trying to understand what she had asked, and then he smiled, rolled his eyes and hit himself in the forehead with his free hand. He opened his mouth to say something, but then his hyena ran to his side, a bag around it's neck. The guy turned his attention to the animal, and smiled in relief, but he struggled to sit up. She's not sure he would have been able too, if the hyena hadn't gently wrapped his mouth around the guy's shoulder and helped pull him up. She had expected bite marks, but none were there.
What kind of person had that strong of a bond with an animal... then the answer hit her like a ton of incredibly obvious bricks. The hyena, that bird, they were companions to these two... and the people who had attacked her and her sister... "You're Wargs."

Rhys


Rhys concentrated on breathing. In, out, in, out, the longer he could keep himself breathing and awake, was the longer he could keep pressure on the wound, therefore, the more he concentrated, the longer he would stay alive. He hadn't been this seriously wounded since he was fourteen, and had been stoned by his community back in the savanna lands of the Prairies. His concentration was broken by something, "Hey... you!" Ugh, this Taralie girl was a talker, and he didn't want to acknowledge her, assuming she was going to yell more obscenities. Yet, he responded, slowly turning his head and opening one eye. In his weakened state, he was less able to close his mind, and a few bits of information leaked through before he shut the tap off all the way.

Lost, scared, sister, Kitty, Blue. Protect them. Failed. Paralyzed.

For a possible Hunter, this girl was very devoted to her sister and dog. What the hell was she protecting them from... well, other than Kane and himself. Her voice pulled him out of his head again, "Is... Is what you did permanent?". Finally he picked up on what his power hadn't told him. He rolled his eyes and smacked himself in the forehead. This girl was no Hunter. Hunter's knew the human body, they would know they weren't permanently paralyzed. They wouldn't even talk to him, they would wait until they could function again and kill him. Shit... and her sister and the wolf pup. He prayed Kane hadn't seriously injured the girl, because that meant... well that would mean they killed one of their own.
He was going to respond to Taralie, but he before he could, he heard the familiar sound of Jester running. As soon as the hyena ran to his side, he saw the bag around his neck and smiled in relief. Jester had to help him sit up, but he got the bag and started rummaging through it, pulling out all the supplies that he needed. Then the Taralie girl whispered, "You're Wargs."
Rhys turned his smile onto Taralie, "Very observant. Although, your sister is one... so we're both in the wrong on this one. Also, you should regain feeling very soon."
He turned his attention back to his wound. He started by sterilizing it with a bottle of booze that he had picked up a while ago. He wasn't a drinker, but the alcohol did wonder's for cleaning out flesh wounds. He then went through the incredibly difficult and painful process of trying to tie the vein together. Blood was coming out to fast, and veins were a lot smaller than arteries. He heard something shift in the grass, and the Ralie girl had crawled over to his side, and started dabbing at the blood.
"Forget the blood, can you see what I'm trying to tie together?" she looked up at him and nodded, "I need you to tie it, you're at a better angle and have smaller fingers." she looked uneasily at the daunting task but nodded and within a few seconds she had successfully tied the vein back together and Rhys finished by sewing the wound shut. Taralie pulled gauze out from the bag, and Rhys nodded. She quickly tied it around his chest, protecting the would from outside ailments.
"Thank you. You handled that pretty well."
She shrugged, "My sister's the healer of our pair, I just learn from watching her."
He nodded and they both returned to silence as they waited for Kane and Kitty and Taralie waited for full feeling to return to her legs.

Kitty glanced up as a hyena arrived from the direction Blue had come from. She watched curiously as the man, Kane, interacted with the animal, even going so far as to take his bag off and give it to the creature. All of this happened within a matter of seconds, or Kitty would have taken her chance the second he had looked away and bolted for the stream. Alas, there was no time for escape, and so she was left to wait in silence as the hunter situated the bag and muttered to the animal. She had heard of hunters having pets, to try and fool Wargs into believing that they were one too, but she had never heard of one treating the pet so humanly. Kitty eyed him suspiciously, wondering what he was up to as he whispered something to the hyena that she couldn't hear.

The hyena left with a little whine, after a gentle push from the hunter who stood from his crouch and turned his attention back to her. Finally addressing her, the male turned to face her with... a smirk? Was something funny to him? Anger bubbled inside her and she wished fervently that she had her sister's bow. She would have sank an arrow right into that smug smile of his! At least, she liked to think she would. Kitty had never actually killed anyone before, or even gotten into a real fight. Ralie was always there to protect her, so she had never had reason become violent with anyone. Still, the smile on his face made her want to lash out, but she knew better. He was bigger, and stronger than she was and Blue wasn't big enough yet to really do anything but get himself hurt. Kitty eyed his body language, trying to get a read on his next move. His shoulders were slouched now, probably because he was relaxing because he knew he had her and she wasn't going to be able to escape.

Her eyes glanced beside her, noticing a fairly sharp rock. She'd have to drop Blue and grab it,then throw it, all before he would have time to react. She was just mentally debating her strategy when he began to speak again. "So you're admitting that you are one? That probably wouldn't protect your sister. Take it from me, some Hunters don't see the difference between Wargs and those that shelter them." Kitty eyed him for a moment, trying to gauge if he was being earnest of playing with her. Then he began to grin, and even let out a laugh, his entire posture shifting into one of a comfortable informal meeting between two strangers. It was as if he had ran into her on the street and accidentally spilled his coffee onto her new blouse. Kitty stood awkwardly while he giggled to himself, gaze still shifting between him and the way to the stream. Could it really be...?

"Firstly, Jester isn't a dog. He's a hyena and he isn't mine. Secondly, I don't need to call him off anything. He probably realized before we did. I'm sorry I didn't notice sooner. You're safe now, I would never knowingly hurt my own kind. Can we talk more on the way back?" What do you think, Blue? Is he telling the truth? Kitty looked to the pup in her hands who had stopped growling and was enjoying the comfort of being cradled in her arms. Still unsure if she could trust him, after he was moments before killing her, Kitty eyed him. "I wasn't talking about the hyena," she muttered, accepting that he wasn't a hunter and that she was in no real danger only when she caught sight of the golden bird landing on a branch near them. The creature looked to her with a 'whatcha doin?' cock of it's head, causing her to smile a little. This must be Via. His companion. The one that saved her from his initial attack. She liked Via. Him? Not so much.

"Do you always try to kill everyone you meet, or just when they're two females alone in the woods?" Her question slipped from her mouth, indicating her bitterness towards him for scaring her and chasing her through the forest. Still, she couldn't help but smile a little despite her anger towards him. Another Warg! It was exciting, to say the least. Then her thoughts drifted to Ralie. She would not be happy about this... Nope. Not happy, at all. "I hope she didn't kill your friend," she managed to say, trying to bridge the awkward gap that comes when two people try to kill each other. She headed back towards the camp, which she had made it a fair distance from. Kitty was a little impressed with herself. Maybe she could have taken him on, after all. At least, she liked to think so for pride reasons. She didn't like the idea of being truly helpless if a real hunter ever caught her.

"My name is Kathryn, and the other girl is my sister. Taralie... but if you call me Kathryn, I won't hold back on you like I did back there," she glanced over to him as they walked back towards her camp, offering a shy smile. They both knew he could have killed her, and she wouldn't have had any way to really fight him. "Everyone calls me Kitty.. and this," she indicated the pup still in her arms, "is Blue." She grinned a little, looking to the golden bird of prey that followed them. "And that is Via, and you, are Tryon; but you like to be called Kane. So that's what I'll call you, because I hate my name too. I'm sorry about your family." She stopped walking, placing Blue on the ground and glancing up to the taller not-such-a-stranger-anymore male. "I've never met another Warg before," she confessed, " I'm just a little excited... and I seem to talk a lot when I'm excited.." She waved off the notion, noticing a cut on her hand as she did so. She must have scratched it on some thorns while she was scrambling away from him. She made a mental note to bandage it up when she got back to the camp. No doubt her knees were bleeding, too, from the fall she took earlier. If they weren't, there would surely be bruises.

Kitty started walking again, not knowing what else to say that wouldn't be annoying. A waterfall of questions about him was held back by a thin mental dam. She would have time to ask him later, she hoped, and for now she should be more concerned with her sister's well-being. She didn't want to run back and alarm Kane, but she did fear for her sister. The last time she saw her, she was holding her own, so she could only hope for the best.

Kane eyes narrowed when he heard her muttered comment. He let it slide though. She had every reason to believe what she wanted about him. As of this moment he had probably given a terrible impression. She probably didn't even know he heard that. Kane sent a look up at Via as she settled on a branch. He sigh as she fooled around as if nothing had happened. Damn bird, If she hadn't got in the way they could have figured things out with them rushing through the woods and splitting up. Tyron gently felt the scratch she inflicted on his rough cheek. It was deeper than he first though and a rivulet of dried blood had actually run down to his neck. It wasn't bleeding anymore but Kane would probably give a little scolding. Not to mention she seemed just a little smug.

"We didn't know you were two woman at first. We we're intending to deal with a potential threat. There was nothing to prove you weren't hunters even after we saw you."

Kane did spot her smile and gave a small one back. He could guess that it had something to do with the fact her life was no longer threatened and she found out she wasn't alone in the world. He felt same, he and Rhys had been wandering so long without encountering another of their kind. He was also glad he didn't have to threaten or kill anyone. It didn't sit comfortably with him, he only saw it as necessary to defend himself, Via and Rhys. He didn't know if she had been telling the truth about her sister though. He hadn't seen the older one's companion but that doesn't mean that she wasn't a Warg either. As far as he knew it was passed through genetics.

"Jester wouldn't have come for my help if Rhys was in any danger at the time. You think Blue would willingly abandon you? I would be more concerned about your sister. You do know she has a really foul mouth? I don't think they're fighting right now as far as I can tell and I wouldn't say she is dead either."

Kitty did bring out a smile from him again. Trying to force things into a more comfortable state, he guessed she wanted to be more capable than she was. That was admirable and endearing. He was somewhat surprised at how perceptive she was. It seemed like she knew more about him then the situation actually provided her with. That raised suspicions but not concerns. Perhaps she had capabilities like Rhys. He would figure that out more later. Now was not the time to probe. Instead he set his pace faster, he could smell blood on the air and wanted to get back to his friend as soon as possible.

"You're right there. Kane is my middle name. I prefer it since Tyron is kind of boring. I wouldn't say the same about Kathryn but if that's what you want. My friend is Rhys and the Hyena is Jester. Just don't let size fool you, he is the older one. I'm glad you're excited but It has been seven years and I still half regret it, so please do not bring up my family."

He fell into silence at that, neither of them had any more to talk about. He had become a little more sullen with the last topic. Ancient memories that he really didn't want to bring back. He lived a different life now, he was no longer a child so the weight of the what-if's were even heavier. Instead he picked up his pace, concerned about Rhys and even Kitty's sister Taralie. Although he made sure he didn't outdistance his new acquaintance. He was the one who emerged first into the campsite, heaving with relief to see Rhys's wound dressed and bound. Noting that he and Taralie weren't heading for each other's throats as well. He managed to crack a grin before turning around to wait for Kathyrn to arrive behind him. He joked a little but the concern and relief was clear in his voice.

"One chance in a million and you go and get stabbed but someone who wouldn't even try to kill you in the first place. In six years time when this happens again, try not to get yourself killed right Rhys."

Rhys



Jester had his head in Rhys's lap and he pet his hyena slowly. The silence between him and Taralie wasn't particularly awkward, Rhys just had issues with silence. Unless of course there was a reason, like when he and Kane had been sneaking up on the pair. She was so talkative earlier, why wasn't yapping know? He started chewing on the nails and cuticles of his other hand, he wanted to smoke something, but moving more would jolt his wound and he just didn't feel like dealing with the pain.

Finally, another voice, a familiar one cut through the silence, "One chance in a million and you go and get stabbed but someone who wouldn't even try to kill you in the first place. In six years time when this happens again, try not to get yourself killed right Rhys."

Rhys grinned back at his friend and laughed, "I'll keep that in mind." He stood, slowly, and watched Taralie do the same, except she stumbled a bit before she righted herself without swaying. He approached his friend, Jester close to his side, in case he lost balance. As he got closer he saw a cut in Kane's cheek and he let his power do it's job, not just getting the report on his friend's cut but an all around status report on both Kane and Kitty. After assuring himself that his friend wasn't hurt to badly he tossed the medicine bag to his friend, "It's not too bad, but you'll need stitches if you don't want it to scar badly. Although... I'd say wait for the scar, it'll make you more terrifying to strangers than you already are," he teased his friend with a smirk on his face.

"Now, I'll officially introduce myself. I am Rhys Morreyn, and this is Jester." He bowed a bit, and then almost immediately regretted that decision. He winced as a pain shot up his side, and he slowly lifted is upper body up, shaking his head to mentally dissipate the pain. He returned a smile to his face and looked around at everyone.

"So... what now?"

A part of him just wanted to say goodbye to the girls and then him and Kane return on their merry way, but a bigger part of him wanted to team up. There was power in numbers and that Taralie girl had skills, not everyone could land a blow on him. Although he knew she didn't mean to place it as perfectly as she did. And another Warg, this was amazing, and exciting. He looked around the group and waited for everyone's thoughts. He could've found out with his ability, but he wasn't too fond of using his ability on people, unless, of course, it was used catalogue and take care of injuries.

Ralie


Ralie slowly massaged feeling back into her legs, a smile coming to her face as soon as she could ben her knee and ankle. She would have stood to look for Kitty, but she wasn't exactly sure how well that would go. Paralyzing pressure points... that was pretty awesome, not to mention useful. She tried to remember exactly where he had hit her to cause it, but she couldn't. She was about to open her mouth ask, and then shut it promptly. They weren't friends. She didn't want to be his friend. She wanted him and his friend to leave her and Kitty alone. He was fidgeting, chewing on his nails. She fondly thought back to when she had the same problem, her mom slapping her hand and scolding her. His fidgeting was making her nervous though and she prayed that Kitty was alright and would be back soon.

Finally, Kitty and the other guy came through the trees. The two guys exchanged words, but she didn't care. Rhys got up and was moving towards them, and as soon as Ralie got her footing she ran to her sister, practically tackling her, and by connection Blue, in a hug. Then she was checking every visible piece of skin, making sure that her sister wasn't damaged in any way.

"He didn't hurt you did he? If he hurt you I'll kill him... okay, maybe not kill him but I will beat him up," she muttered to her sister. Her check up on Kitty was interrupted by the guy who had attacked her.

"Now, I'll officially introduce myself. I am Rhys Morreyn, and this is Jester." he bowed, which Ralie thought was strange, but she felt a weird stabbing of guilt as he winced. She wasn't sure why, she had killed people with her bare hands in the Fights, and never even shed a tear, but stabbing a Warg made her feel like the worst person alive. It was probably because of Kitty... and the fact that these two men were in the exact same boat they were. Survival.

"I'm Taralie, call me Ralie." Rhys awknowledged her with a nod.

Rhys looked around at all four of them before finally saying what she assumed everyone was probably thinking... at least it was what she was thinking.

"So... what now?"

Ralie turned her gaze to Kitty. Ralie preferred to just stay with her sister, but she understood the benefits of having these two on their side. Besides, these guys were Wargs, they were probably heading to the same place that they were anyway. It was up to Kitty, as far as Ralie was concerned.

"So... what now?" It was the question of the hour. Kitty glanced to Ralie, was was already looking to her for her opinion. Ralie and Rhys had done quite the number on each other, Kitty noted, but now that they were both on the same side... maybe they could stand a chance against a real hunter. Kitty's run in with Kane had given her quite the scare. What if he had been a real hunter? Would she have honestly been able to do anything to stop him? She turned her eyes to the athletic male, then to Via, Rhys, Jester, and finally landing back on her sister. Ralie never trusted anyone. So,Kane had said that he didn't want to kill her anymore but... what if this whole thing was just a trap? After all, just because they were Wargs didn't mean they bid the sisters no ill will. I would never hurt anyone of my own kind... Kane's words echoed in her mind. Should they risk it?

Better to risk trusting her own kind, than risk getting caught by hunters with no way to defend herself. Ralie was right; she wouldn't always be there to protect her... and when left to herself, Kitty was almost helpless. The feeling made her stomach hurt. "I would like for you to stay," she said finally, to Kane, and then she turned to Rhys, "both of you." She turned her hues to Blue who sat at her heels, and then Ralie. "Safety in numbers, right?"

And so their duo became a group. Three Wargs and a human willing to give her life for her. Kitty felt her heart go to her sister, who put up with so much to look after her. Maybe having the guys around would make life easier on Ralie. She wouldn't have to do all the hunting by herself anymore, and who knew? Maybe the other Wargs had talents like she did and could be of even more use. It's true there were safety in numbers, but a part of her was worried that traveling with so many Wargs might draw attention to her. Either way, it was a double edged sword. Even still, she would rather them stay. She wasn't alone in the world anymore, and she didn't want to lose that. Of course she would always love her sister more than anything; but Ralie would never understand her pain, or struggles. Not truly. Not like Rhys and Kane could. She felt such a deep connection to them, even though she barely knew them. Strangers brought together by a common enemy. "If that's okay with you, Ralie," she added shyly, as an after thought. She didn't want anyone thinking she was in charge, because that role had always been Ralie's.

"I would like to keep the scars to minimum thank you very much."

He gracefully caught the bag and smirked back. He already had a couple of scars on his person, he wasn't in a rush to add to them. He rooted around the bag and found what he needed and frowned at how little they had left. He didn't know when they would be able to restock. In a show of gross negligence he licked his fingers and smeared the blood from his cheek before using merely a dab of the minuscule amount of non-medicinal alcohol to sterilize the wound. He grit his teeth, tensing as he cleaned it out. Thankful being used to intense feeling a pain had helped him become pretty much immune to what would send a normal person out of commission. Then again, it took less to deal that much punishment. He expected that Taralie if made true on her threat he would be in a lot more pain, so he dealt with it.

With that out of the way he took what else he needed from the back and rejoined the conversation.

"Introductions first then? I'm Tyron Kane Zergat. I prefer Kane. The golden eagle that has caused so much trouble is my companion, Via. You'll get used to her, she usually won't pester you unless you're me."

He indicated the bird perching in the branches overhead with a chuckle. Via continued ruffling and cleaning her feathers as if ignorant of the slander. He sighed at her antics. Packing the bag of medical equipment back up except for the few items he was going to use. He was certainly glad the hear that Kitty at least shared his sentiment. He'd never wanted to part ways if they had run into another of their kind. Kathyrn was right, there was strength in numbers. There were not enough of his kind to afford being picked off one at a time by xenophobic fanatics. He knew that he was giving himself airs but he felt responsible for the continuation of his species. His father had lived long enough to have a son, could Kane not hope to perhaps have a family in his life and children. Rhys was essentially an older brother, even after they had tried to kill each other so perhaps there was hope.

"I don't think Rhys is in a condition to head off anywhere in a hurry. No offense Kitty but you can't have one of us without the other. As regrettable as it might seem."

He tried to keep the tone light. They had recently been trying to kill each other after all, or at least there was the certain threat of being killed for both sides. He moved and handed the bag to Kathryn, noting that she had gotten things a bit bad.

"Here. It's the least I can do. I agree though, it would be safer with the four of us. Besides we I think we need to make it up to you somehow. You were heading west right?"
