Blessed Be the Merciful [Aurelius]

Long before she entered the arena, Frigga used mislead. Her true form became invisible, and she was granted a simulacrum to direct. The Arena was dry today, a rare occurrence but one she was thankful for. Mud would put extra stress on her aching back legs, old injuries that often flared up. Eventually, she came to a halt, leaving her clone in the open. She stood perpendicular to the left side of its neck (standing back about seven feet).

Stance wide upon the dry and grassless dirt, she prepared herself mentally and physically. Tail hung loosely behind her, ears erect (to listen) and eyes un-narrowed (to keep an eye out for her grandson). Her head was not lowered, maw unwrinkled and closed -- all because she did not anticipate Aurelius knowing her simulacrum was fake. Likewise, her hackles were flat.

Ready, she aimed a few calls at the ground -- summoning her grandson. She knew her son would likely disapprove of this. To be honest, she preferred to keep Kingdom business out of the Arena, but this was a special circumstance.

They had much to discuss.

This was not discipline; this was not a struggle for power. This was a former Queen making her displeasure known regarding the direction her realm was taking. Duchess of the Algiz she might be, but she had founded the Verja for her family. Though she'd been busy raising her last litter and living happily with Beau during Rangvald's reign, she had nothing but politics to distract her now. Fraya and Idun, of course, took much of her time, but she was lonely. To keep that loneliness at bay, she threw herself into politics. To be dismissed by her grandson -- to be called by her formal title ("Duchess Frigga"), rather than by her familial association -- to imply she had overrode him in the past, had disrespected him.

If he thought rank determined the amount of respect one received, Frigga would take the position at his side and force him to see reason.

You are a vain and cruel boy, Aurelius. It's time you learned.

RE: Blessed Be the Merciful [Aurelius]


Stark had been walking toward the northern lands. There was no reason other than his family was there. He had only made the choice to return back from the southern lands only hours before. It was with that reason why he was still only in the Divine lands. Which was probably a good thing.

Because as he was passing the arena, he heard the summons of his sister.

No matter the amount of time that he had spent away, Stark would be very much aware of what his sister's voice sounded like. His ears flicked as he wondered what had happened to cause Frigga to call for a rank challenge. On top of which, between the two of them, he almost believed that she wouldn't have stepped back into the limelight of leadership. Stark wasn't even sure if he would do it. Since spending time away from family, the russet wolf had regained some of his former self. However, he was still nowhere near being whole. As he traveled, his companion was sitting upon his shoulder.

He was focused on heading toward where Frigga's voice had come from that he hadn't realized that wings had suddenly come to being. They flared out, giving Stark added weight as he paused. Eyes furrowed as he glanced toward his sides to see brown feathers tipped with russet - much like the feathers that adjourned his neck. Freydis looked on as she stared at the new appendages that came from the russet wolf's back. "I'm assuming that's new." Her voice was light as she spoke to him as Stark slowly shook his head. "Yep," agreed the russet wolf. First it was the feathers and then it was the horns. He was only surprised that it had taken so long for something else to show itself toward him. Though, Stark could recall that of a coyote with wings.

Nashad was able to make the wings come and go and that meant that they weren't a mutation. They were merely magic and yet, Stark wasn't sure if he should be glad or not. Lifting his wings up to fold them against his sides, he continued onward. Finally getting to where Frigga was at, Stark reclined upon his haunches to observe.






Stark has a companion named Freydis. She is a blue wyrmling dragon with cobalt blue scales. No one else can hear Freydis speak; only Stark can.

Jahi found himself heading in the direction of south. He had no true goal in mind. Actually, throughout his life, he had no true goal. He had no ambition to rise to the tops like the rest of his family. Jahi merely wanted to live his life the way that he felt was correct.

There weren't many that he looked down upon. It mattered little to him what someone else decided to do with their life. However, since the disappearance of his mother and the fact that his father hadn't returned home, Jahi wasn't sure what he was supposed to do with himself. Never once before had he believed that he was one that always needed to be attached to his parents' sides. Except he hadn't really thought about the fact that he had been the only child that had remained. Again, Jahi wondered if that even mattered.

Sure, Kari had returned. Without Sirius or Astrid, but she had come back. So at least in that regard, he wasn't completely alone.

Jahi heard the call from his aunt and he blinked his gaze. As he approached, wondering how much of family politics had he actually missed out on, Jahi found his father sitting. At least he looked good. He couldn't tell if the man was fully healed or not. Though, if he was, wouldn't he have returned home by now? Coming toward him, he noticed that there were a few changes that had happened to his father. One was the wings that were currently furled around his back and the second thing was the dragon like creature sitting upon his shoulder.

Okay... That's new.

"Are you starting up a way to change your body, Pops? How many more new tricks did you learn? And, what, exactly, is that on your shoulder?" It was nothing that he had ever seen before. Jahi wasn't sure if it was supposed to resemble a lizard or not.

People leaves, friends leaves, money leaves, and fame leaves. But...your knowledge remins with you forever and always.


A young Lioness padded with no special care of her surroundings or whatever she was heading to. As a mere loner she could do as he pleased and she loved her freedom. A freedom she didn't have back in Julianna, always confined into a land unable to explore beyond the walls that surrounded the Morass. But now there weren't walls that could stop her.

And as black limps carried her to a new place, pink eyes opened wide as she never saw such a place. Was this place always here? What kind of secrets or treasures could be find here? Those question flooded the female's childish mind.

As she entered the arena, her eyes widely oppened as she saw some guys on there. 'Oh yes new friends!' She thought as happiness took over her body, and wasting no time trots toward the two wolves aiming to stop in front of them. "Hello!!!" She greeted with her normal friendly way to greet. And she cared little about they being complete strangers. Any chance to meet new people was everything for her. "Wanna be friends?!" Asked them smiling widely. But quickly her eyes landed on the horned wolf's wings. "What are those? Can I have a pair too?" Asked very curious. She didn't notice the AWD just because all her focus was with the weird looking wolf(Stark).

RE: Blessed Be the Merciful [Aurelius]

Rai wasn't sure what had happened that caused her daughter to come to the arena. What she did know was that it must have been serious enough to make her challenge. It wasn't like Rai believed that her daughter would go out of her way to shame her own grandson. So, what had that grandson done?

As far as Rai was aware, there had been no problems.

Though, she had been less than active when it came to actual family matters. Maybe she wasn't cut to be a leader of the family anymore. Except, wasn't that the reason why she had given such a task to Stark? But her eldest son wasn't exactly up to the task either. So, in default, it had fallen back to the shoulders of the russet wolf. She sighed, her eyes closing shut before she forced them open. She walked to the arena and as she arrived, she could see that Frigga was ready for battle. It was strange, honestly. Not being disrespectful to her daughter, but Rai had always believed Frigga to be more about the mind. She had tricks that she had learned from Loki while Stark had taken more after her own way around the problems.

Speaking of which, Rai glanced away from Frigga's prepared form to see that of her wayward son. From where she stood, she could already see that Stark had started to gain more of himself back. How much longer would his healing take did not matter to her. As long as he came back whole, that was the only thing that any of them should be concerned about. Rai could see beside her son was her grandson. And it appeared that he had taken to heckling him as the first thing that he was going to do. Ah, she supposed that he wouldn't be part of her line without that. Rai could also see that there was another that was lingering near them. As she got a better look at Stark, she noticed two things: there was a lizard thing on his shoulder and was that wings?

Holding herself back for a second, she turned her attention back to Frigga. Figuring that Stark needed time to be with his son, she hadn't noticed the lioness approach them.

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance


She lead Soini outside of the realm. Her son was easily able to keep up with her now that he was almost a year and a half. With that age now, Kari wasn't afraid to take him out of the lands on a little one on one bonding trip. The other two were certainly fine in the realm without getting into too much trouble.

At least, that was what Kari hoped.

If they were anything like her, though, she might actually need to have cause for concern. Because while Kari had abide by the rules, it did not mean that she had been all sweet and innocence. There was a major reason why she had a tongue as sharp as her grandmother and father. She smirked to herself as she continued to walk by the side of her son. Soini was silent in the trip, though Kari was certain that he had questions. She was also certain that he would start his protest the longer that they walked.

She had planned on heading in the direction of the south. She had gotten the scent of her father and he had the scent of a realm. She had heard that realm by his own lips. Kamar-Taj. Of course, the Queen didn't know if he still resided there. But at the current moment, it was the only thing that she had to go on. So, imagine her surprise when she heard the sound of her aunt's barks. And who was it that she was calling for?

Aurelius.

What had the young leader done to cause Aunt Frigga to make a challenge?

Kari sighed because, as one of the three leaders of the Kingdom, she felt obligated to show. She was also certain that the slight detour would do nothing to help Soini not become impatient. Eh, well, politics certainly called. Making the detour without giving notice to Soini, the female wolf lead the male lion onward. Kari had been focused on finding out the reason for her aunt's challenge that she hadn't considered the possibility of running into her father here. Her eyes slowly blinked as she took in the sight of Stark Dame next to Jahi and a lion teenager.

Deciding that the lion teenager was none of her concern, Kari made her way toward her brother and father with Soini on her heels. She took in her father's new appearance of the wings and the little lizard thing upon his shoulder. Right, she didn't have the time or care to brush up on that. And it had nothing to do with the fact that Jahi already had. Kari gazed upon her father with a huff. "You aren't an easy man to keep tabs on, you know." She flicked her gaze upon her son. "So, yeah, cutting to the chase, congratulations, you're a grandpa!" As she said the words, she indicated to Soini to move forward to introduce himself.

Soini Dame

Hold on for a second
If words can be weapons
Then what I say can affect it

Soini followed dutifully after his mother. He wasn't sure where she was leading him or why it was merely just him. Perhaps it was something that he had done wrong. Which is shocking, because he was just a mere angel. And that was the story he was going to stick with until the day he died. Maybe a little gruesome for a barely year and a season old kid but this was the life that he was going to lead, dang it!

He wasn't sure how long they had started to walk. Or how far they were going to go. What he did know was that the farther that they went away from the house, the more likely that the other two weren't going to be able to catch up.

Maybe that was the goal of his mother? Soini wasn't exactly sure. He kept his tongue still for as long as he could hold it. When she started to lead him toward a different land, Soini couldn't hold back his sigh any longer. "How much further?" The complaint barely left his mouth before he found himself being lead in a direction toward a gathering. His ears perked forward, his head tilting to the side as he could spy that of his family. He hadn't realized that they were heading in the direction of his great-aunt.

Honestly, he hadn't even been aware of the fact that he had heard her call. But somehow, his mother had. Instead of doing something to his great-aunt, however, Soini was being lead to a cluster of wolves. He could see from where he was standing beside his mother that there were two wolves and a lioness. The lioness was probably his age, except he wasn't good at actually seeing how old another creature was or not. He kept quiet as his mother started to speak, her tone directed toward that of the horned wolf. Horned wolf with wings. Shocking, really, Soini thought. When his mother uttered that the man before him was his grandfather, his eyes were ready to pop out of his skull.

Uh, what she say now?

He had a grandfather? Soini turned his gaze upon his mother in disbelief. "Uh, hi," Soini said when he noticed his mother giving him direction to speak. "I'm Soini." Internally, the boy winced because that seemed childish. Was that childish? Had to be childish.

"Talk here."

RE: Blessed Be the Merciful [Aurelius]

There’s some cursing ahead! Marking this post [M] as a precaution.



A brow rose above his eyes when he heard his grandmother’s call. What the absolute fuck? He could only imagine this was due to the way he treated the rogues they had met. Frigga and her blind generosity. Being a pain in the ass was one thing, but this? This was surely different. Aurelius had never thought of the woman in such insulting way, but there was no way he’d manage to think lightly of this. It was the first time he had been exposed to this kind of doing. If his father’s words were true, it’d be the first time of any leader of the Verja. This was straight out bullshit.

On ascension granted wings, he would take off. It was time he made himself present in the arena.

-time skip to the arena-

He had not missed the animals already present as he flew above the the earth. In a dive, the man would try to land 6 feet away from his grandmother (right in front of her). He did not know, however, that it was not actually her. Taking a deep breath, he would prepare himself for what was to come.

"And what is this about, amma?" He questioned, even though an idea had already come to mind. They could be in the arena, but Aurelius would not physically challenge her. He sought a conversation only. No fighting included.

Whilst no defenses would not bother to be set, he would await his grandmother’s reply. This whole thing already felt like an insult, so why bother if she’d say rude things? Not that he expected her to. This was Frigga he stood before. Having her be “mean” would surely be a surprise.

RE: Blessed Be the Merciful [Aurelius]

Her sonarsonr arrived on wing, and she took a breath when he spoke, attempting to keep her emotions calm. It was hard not to be passionate when she knew he must be hurting; his father had been gone, his brother had died... Yes, he had suffered; life made him hard, but she would do what she could to help lift the burden he found himself with.

She let her defenses slip away, weighted upon by sadness for her beloved grandson. Besides, she was still carefully concealed by her magic; he was facing her clone (because mislead was still active) so defenses were not needed just yet. Paws firmly planted on the dry and grassless earth, she organized her thoughts.

When she replied, she made the simulacrum speak for her so she didn't give away her position. However, whisper would attempt to bring all of her words to his ears alone. "This is an intervention, and do not fear -- only you should be able to hear my words. You have a right to defend our Kingdom -- and I believe you have the best interests of our people at heart for you are a good man -- but you are too quick to violence. You revel in it. I will not witness you following this dark path and do nothing. I've seen it all before, sonarsonr; I won't lose you as I lost my brother." I won't lose you to the darkness that took your father or your great-uncle. Of course, she had no idea Stark was nearby; she was too focused on her grandson. "There must be balance -- a gentle voice to temper the rage. Yin and yan. I will do this for you until you find another." Until you find a King or Queen. Aurelius needed a kind soul to act as his conscious, just as Castiel did for Rangvald; would he find one? "I will be your council, in private or -- if asked -- in public."

Another day had him out and about. He didn't really have a direction, until he heard an arena summons. Well, that should be interesting. He arrived to see the others gathered and a face off between Frigga and that same male from before. He thought through his many years of memories and realized that this was probably one of the many pups he had taught things to over the years. That explained the lack of recognition at first. Finding adults from images of babies was often difficult. Since his old perch was taken by way of being in the arena, he veered towards another old friend. He aimed to sit Stark's antlers, right where he had previously made a perch for himself among the other fang members. If it was no longer there, he would just sit close. He noticed Frigga speak, but heard no sound. A few ideas of which magics that could be played through his mind...but since it looked like an actual conversation was trying to be had, likely one that spoke to the target alone. He could do that, at least in one way, so he assumed it to be the same for now.

He turned to look at the dragon welp on Stark's shoulder while talking to the wolf. "Old friend, have you grown weary of life without a constant avian interference? I could arrange for an escort should you desire."






Has a single leather necklace with a gemstone pendant much like this bracketed by these.
Wears 3 leg bands around both legs similar to the picture. Two on the left, one on the right. Except the studs are these and Amethysts for the left leg, and these on the right. They are solid bands with no fasteners on them. He has additional bands around his legs with other gemstones. Ten total leg bands.
On his head rests a light blue woven leather circlet.
He has the image of an icosahedron on his chest as a result of his blessing.
