Nyxmel

Rogue wolf with wisdom of the world and wanderlust, yet he longs for a place to call home.

0 · 107 views · located in Wolf Tribe Territory

a character in “Wolf Tribe”, originally authored by The(Doctor)Horrible, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Nyxmel is smaller than average, and moves with a sort of grace about him. When in shadows, his coat is inky black, but in moonlight the silver strands reflect the moonlight, giving him a very ghostly, ethereal aura. His eyes gleam silver and always have the twinkle of curiosity in them. He holds his head high and tail up, the posture of an alpha.

Personality

Nyxmel is very gentle and wise for his years. He prefers to use his wit to avoid conflict, but when forced to fight he analyzes his opponent, preferring speed over brute strength. He has always revered the Moon. He is very paternal, and always has a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face. Travel leads to adventure in his eyes, and he has never been one to stay still for more than a day. Though he always seems happy, inside he is achingly lonely and wishes nothing more than to have a home to go back to.

History

Nyxmel was born in the alpha ranks of a pack which was destroyed by a flood when he was a kit. Only a few others survived besides him, and when forced under responsibility to lead at a young age, he couldn't handle it. A band of betas overthrew him and he was forced into exile. Since then he has travelled under the Moon. She has been his one true companion, and he considers Her sky to be his dwelling. He has travelled for two years, and ever pack he has come to has forced him out due to his odd nature. He travels on, having no hope of a home, but wishing the best for each pack he visits.

So begins...

Nyxmel trotted ahead of Ace, every sense on alert for potential prey. His fur gleamed silver in patches of moonlight and sunk to pitch black in shadow. The only constant was his eyes, constantly silver and searching. Ace slunk a bit behind his true friend with bow nocked and drawn, ready for the alert. The pair moved silently along the forest floor near a stream, stomachs ready for food and eyes alight with adventure.

(We aren't pack members... yet...)
Nyxmel caught the scent of something. He froze and began to sniff at the air, tail out straight to alert Ace. The young man stood still and readied his bow. He followed the space before Nyxmel's sweeping nose with the head of the nocked arrow. His jerkin glid across his chest as he pivoted, boots planted firmly on the ground...

Nyxmel's ears shot up and Ace loosed the arrow into the bush his friend had marked. A squeak and shudder later, the fletching stood still. Ace puffed out a steamy breath in victory and rushed over to their quarry. He parted the prickly leaves with Nyxmel at his side to pull out the large rabbit they had won over. The thing was warm and unblemished, and the scent of blood filled the air. They didn't care, it was dinner and they were hungry.

Nyxmel had felt the vibrations of something coming closer. More food perhaps? He sniffed the air... No... Wolf! He stood and went on alert, ears up and eyes alert. When the she-wolf pounced towards the oblivious Ace, Nyxmel intercepted her mid pounce and tackled her. He barked a warning as they landed back on the ground. "Stay away from him!" he yapped in a light tenor, but didn't move to hurt her.

Nyxmel looked calmly at her. "He is a lone human. We have lived here together for years without any influences of the humans' world. He knows me and the forest, I know him and the forest, and we coexist in harmony. He wishes no harm on any being, same as myself. Leave him be..." Ace had turned and had an arrow nocked should the scarred she-wolf attempt to attack either of them. He hated to be forced to take the precaution, but it was necessary.

"I am Nyxmel," stated the black wolf, obviously relieved, but still on guard. "He is Fletcher Lightsong, but goes by Ace. And yourself?" He held back his surprise at the fact that there was a pack around. The last time they had come across any other wolves or humans was nearly six months ago. He watched her with caution and shot Ace a comforting glance and a cursory tail wag.

Nyxmel's demeanor remained calm. The she-wolf was obviously a few cubs short of a litter. "Greetings, Death. Now if you will, we have food. I'd invite you to share, but it's barely enough for us. Perhaps some other time." He nodded respectfully out of habit, flicked an ear at Ace to let him know all was well, and walked to the stream. The young man followed with a respectful nod to the wolf that mirrored Nyxmel's. In no way was one above the other, but he wasn't fluent enough in wolf to talk to anyone but Nyx, so Ace let his friend deal with all canine encounters.

Nyxmel turned to look at the receding form of the she-wolf and the fat rabbit she had left. "Our gratitudes, madam," he called before circling back to retrieve the cold prey. Food was food, and after Ace cooked anything he was happy. The fur tickled Nyx's tongue, absorbing the drool that accumulated with the prospect of a good meal.

Ace looked down affectionately at the salivating wolf and smiled. He traded the warm rabbit for the colder one and sat down. The pack on his back was retrieved and firewood and firestarter was drawn from it. Within minutes, a controlled flame was steadily cooking Ace's meal while Nyxmel chowed down hungrily on his. The warmth and light was a relief to the young man, but he was always cautious so as to not let anything get caugh in the ravenous flames.

As the she-wolf approached, Nyxmel's ears swiveled to her arrival. She strode within the warming range of the fire as the pair finished up their dinners. Bellies full and faces warmed, the news of 'allowing them to live' took Nyxmel by surprise. He stood slowly, silver eyes glinting with danger and determination. If she made any move toward either of them Nyx would be prepared. "You will not 'allow' us to do anything, madam. I encountered no scent markers for this territory to have it claimed by you. We only pass through, we don't stop. Travellers. And by old rules of hospitality, if we do nothing aggressive on unmarked lands we are allowed to pass freely." His ears swiveled back to face Ace. "I intend to protect that right for the both of us, and the man behind me is a pretty good shot." He scuffed his hind paw twice, a signal the pair had developed to say Ace should draw his bow. Nyxmel had no intention to attack, only to be prepared if she did. "We never have any intention to stop nor to cause trouble."

Nyxmel trotted through the woods in search of more food or a better place to lodge. He didn't much trust the she-wolf and didn't want her to know of his location. A gust of wind pushed at his nose, causing him to instinctively sniff at it. No prey... but a cub! He sniffed again, eyes wide, but there were no adults anywhere near it. He raced off, following the scent. It was female, too young to be on it's own, but past that he only knew he had to make sure it was okay. Finally, he centered on the source of the scent and ran up in front of her. "Wait," he panted, tail wagging so he didn't seem a threat. "Where are your parents? Pack? Anyone?"

Death's nose caught hold of another smell, and she let out a deep and angry growl. No way was Nyxmel taking away her pup! No way! She stormed from the bush and pinned Nyxmel down, teeth bared. ''You stay off her! Don't even look at her! Don't even think about her! I'll rip your throat out if you do!'' She picked up Jessica and trotted back into the bush to Shadow.

Nyxmel yelped at the sudden attack and struggled against her, but didn't make any move to bite or kick. No violence. When the cub was carried away, he snapped in protest. This wolf wasn't to be trusted and the pup obviously didn't want to go with her... He made the quick decision to follow them.

Ace was sleeping in the early morning hours by the dying fire, too far to hear the commotion.

''Nyxmel yes. I met him earlier.'' Death picked up Jessica by her scruff and mumbled ''Lets go.'' She then headed back to her den.

Shadow followed. Nyxmel. An interesting name. He was interested to find out just who this wolf was. He would query Death and spy on him tomorrow.

Death walked slow, on purpose. She knew Nyxmel was following them, after all he thought she was a threat, and she was! He was totally right in that! But Death, she thought more of herself. She was going to rule the pack, kill it, and punish every single human being for being born and living. And no one was going to stop her. So Death just smiled a creepy smile and kept on holding Jessica by her scruff to make sure she wouldn't escape.

Death dipped his head to her as Death came back out of the den, "So, who is this Nyxmel?" he asked.

Star Light heard Jessica scream out again, closer now. Drooling on her? It must be Shadow or Death. Who else would have her. Star Light broke into a run. Not caring if she was heard.

Shadow considered what Jessica was saying. It was true Death could be a little cruel, but so could he. Maybe I shouldn't have been so hard on her before. She was just trying to be friendly. It must have been comforting to her to see my familiar face, and Death just seemed to want to keep her safe from humans. Perhaps she hadn't even been friends with my sister, she had run away after all. Who else would do that, but a cub being held there against her will. Yes, I will try my hardest to make things right with Jessica again. He moved away from the cave entrance. He didn't want Death to know he had been listening in on the conversation in case it was private to her.

Star Light got tired of waiting for Ace to notice her. Her gaze wandered to another wolf sitting near him. A Wolf Master and his Wolf perhaps? She padded over and dipped her head to the strange wolf. "Greetings. I am Star Light," she said. It did sound a bit formal, but she didn't wish this wolf to think she wasn't worth paying attention to. "I mean you and your Wolf Master no harm, but I do need your help."
