It's uphill for oddities

(This post was last modified: 08-09-2019, 11:25 AM by Valravn. Edited 3 times in total.)

The beast padded through the shadows cast by the tree trunks as they caught the moonlight. He was an enormous creature but moved quietly for a wolf of his size. The light of the moon caused the crystals deep in his eyes to glow a hellish orange and shined off of the white in his fur. The face the glowing orbs were placed in was darkened in places; reminiscent of a skull. A necklace of leather cord and bone hung around his neck with a raven's skull with three pairs of fangs -- one on each side-- the first from a tiger, the second from a bear, and the third of a wolf's -- each with a vertebra between them.

The skull-marked giant moved almost uncannily, his head was held low and he looked straight ahead. Most wolves his age would have been looking around, stopping to sniff at interesting items, or at least wagging their tail and not holding it like it was a limp creature. The beast did neither. He walked as though he had purpose yet he wandered aimlessly. He looked like a ghost.

The skeletal creature didn't seem all there at the moment. His eyes were elsewhere and probably his senses. He hadn't realized he entered lands that belonged to a pack.

Thora Dame-Fritjov

We're just simple like a six string
The way this world was meant to be




In the form of a wedge-tailed eagle (via shift), Frigga traced the perimeter of the borders. This form allowed her to hover for long lengths of time, so she was far from tired. An hour or so into her patrol, she noticed a wolf down below. As she swooped down to land, she saw Thora (her granddaughter) emerge, notice the stranger, and approach him. Satisfied that the stranger was being addressed, she landed in a tree nearby and watched.

Thora was eating a meal on the riverfront, enjoying the meat and the view, when she spotted a white splotch against the color of the Grove. She blinked, stood, and followed the young male. Her nose told her he didn't belong in these lands -- but he was a teenager. She'd never intercepted a teenage trespasser before. Deciding to be firm but not cruel, she barked out an order. "Halt! You're trespassing in the lands of the Kingdom of Gullborg!" That outta get his attention, yes?



OC: I powerplayed Frigga, as I play her.

RE: It's uphill for oddities

The black and white beast didn't react like how one would normally react when they were pulled back into reality by a sudden shout. He came to a stop and looked up but there was little response in his body though a muted confusion flashed across his eyes. His expression still stayed in what one would describe as a black, emotionless stare. There was no raising of hackles or anything other that a normal wolf would do. He just watched the owner of the voice with his uncanny jack-o-lantern stare.

The skull-faced giant was confronted with a wolf of creamy fur with splotches of black on her face. She was smaller than the beast, but most would be smaller than the creature who grew to the limit of wolf size. Her eyes were a forest green unlike his hellfire eyes. He didn't respond to her, one wouldn't find it hard to believe that he hadn't heard her but some would believe that the words hadn't registered. He hadn't been paying attention to crossing the borders so it wasn't a stretch to think he hadn't heard her or her words had just slid off of him.

But the massive monster had heard her but he didn't seem to respond at first. But then he slowly began to turn around.

Thora stood patiently, waiting for the teen to acknowledge her words. Most children, she thought, would have been embarrassed to be caught. They'd turn and apologize and try to make amends. This boy did neither. Had he heard her? Was he...was he mute? Wait, no. That wasn't the right word for it. Deaf. Yes. Was he deaf? Suddenly, the male began to turn.

Had he heard her? Had he scented her? She blinked, unsure what to do. "Are you...deaf?" she asked as she continued to approach him. There was no gentle way to ask such a question, but Thora wasn't known for her finesse with words.



OC: Keep in mind that, at 1.25 years old Valravn is only 153 lbs (85% of his adult weight). <3

The dark and bone wolf had little response to the female but turned to look at her. His hellfire eyes attempted to bore into her forest ones. It was unknown as to what he was trying to do or what he was thinking. Was he going to fight her? No, his hackles were not raised and his teeth were not bared. Was he afraid? No, his body language did not indicate that? The beast just looked at her with his ears held at their normal posture and his tail hanging limply behind him.

The skull-faced giant was faced with a question that his maw made no attempt to form words to answer. One would be surprised to even get an answer from the silent beast who made no attempt to answer or respond. However his response was a slow shake of his head. And then the beast turned to head back across the border he had crossed.

OOC:
Oh okay!

Narcissa Malfoy


Diamond Thrones and Royal Beds.


‘Cissa’s intentions for Vipera’s success was absolute, of course, and she’d see it rise with expectation and glory –– like Morsmordre once envisioned, their right to rule would never be dishonoured or question again. It will never be removed, nor challenged against. That, for one, was a promise the porcelain vowed to keep; she didn’t usually waltz from the affairs of siren cove, however duties weren’t always daily. Why, she’d continue to vow the throne of Malfoy’s either way, politically and indefinitely. An ear would flick, hearing commotion from the borders of the grove -- the queen was simply passing through, not concerned with what was going on. The petals of the blossom trees wore in the air, dotted in sparse vegetation. Coming forward, featherfoot activated to keep up a delicate appearance, ice point sheeting the very claws she bore, inclusive to every tooth. They were cold, solidified by ice. Magic was how they fortified their power in name, but that did not mean it was consistently necessary -- she did not need it to prove herself worthy as royal ruler -- Narcissa Malfoy was never not one. And yes, while the blueblood hereditary prided themselves on the elements, the porcelain was more than capable of ruling a province without its powerful art. She was a master at manipulation, devious and elegant. Agile fused in concentration, thermometer turning a puddle of water into a hotpot of bubbling boils. That singular, oceanic-blue narrowed upon the earth in simple intricacy, somewhat intrigued by the lack of communication from this boned wolf –– well, from where she stood, there didn’t seem to be much of it at all. A purr befell, slathered in honey and sweetened tea like it’d always done. Barrier began to manifest a wall from the energies that circulated ‘Cissa’s existence, hailed by a golden-translucency as it was used to cut-off any confrontation from the others.

As such, subzero never failed to icen her skin in a chilling sensation, one she cared little for and knew nothing about.

They were but children, no?

Xewk Lanġas

Tell me somethin', girl,
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?



Xewk had been doing border patrol, when movement in front of him caught his eyes. Investigator let him know a few things, it was a rogue within the borders, it also let him know from the knowledge of his mate’s frequent shifts to bird, that it was most likely Frigga who was watching from afar in a tree. Infact, he would bet on it. Eidetic memory helped him recall that Thora was listed as baroness by Rai from that one time when Helu tried to take on that feline. He walked up behind the tree that Frigga was sitting on, her scent confirming her identity. Xewk sat down next to the trunk of the tree and decided to take a page out of Frigga’s book by letting Thora handle things.

He watched as Thora called out to the young teen, and how he didn’t reply. Thora then asked the young man if he was deaf. Xewk held back a wince from visibly forming. The girl was trying, but he knew that asking that so bluntly could land yourself with a disability yourself, at least where he was from originally. Thankfully here, things were a bit different, perhaps he should get Helu and some of the people for border patrol together so they can explain what’s appropriate questions to ask a disabled person since there didn’t seem to be much of them, and no one seemed to know how to handle them, at least… no one here could handle Noam… that he knew for a fact.

He watched the teen shake his head no at the question as his answer before his green eyes caught movement out of the corner of them. He looked over to see a female tiger in the distance. Eidetic memory reminding him that he saw her before back at the same time as Thora back when. Xewk wondered what her deal was, though didn’t sit on the thought for long.

Instead he turned his attention to Frigga for a moment, being sure to speak softly, just loud enough for his mate to hear. He didn't want to have Thora or the teen overhear, Frigga and him would step in if things got bad, plus Xewk wasn’t about to let a kid fend for his own. "Those feathers look lovely on you as always my dear." He enjoyed complimenting his mate, in whatever form she was. He gave a smile and then looked forwards towards the teen and Thora."Perhaps the kid is non-verbal, or just has issues communicating. He is kind of acting like Siekta on one of his bad ‘I don’t want to communicate’ days. Patience I think is needed. That or he is just very shy, and Thora is very scary.” The part about Thora was said in a joking tone of voice as the kid had not shown signs of fear or really much emotion at all. The part about Siekta’s bad days though, was that Siekta was a mute, and not many people could read lips, leaving him somewhat isolated. Though, Xewk didn’t know this kid’s story, nor why he wasn’t speaking.

"Perhaps… he injured his chords. Eating certain things can do that, among other less than pleasant things.” Having his own throat damaged and his own chords permanently injured caused him to think of maybe not the most obvious of reasons. Xewk was trying to give the kid the benefit of the doubt in anyway he could. He had a big heart and was showing his softer side at the moment. Though, his words were only spoken loud enough for Frigga to hear, he preferred it that way. He looked up at Frigga and gave her a warm smile.


"Talk here."
MTSOfan



oc note: Xewk is just chatting with Frigga and observing, can be skipped until/if he steps in. (will note if he does)





Xewk has a brand of a ♅ on his right hind leg. He has a large claw scratch scar on the length of his neck. His vocal chords are permanently messed up due to it. While he still maintains a Maltese accent his voice is gravely and rough. He is also missing the tip of his tail.

The pup turned and stared at her rather blankly.

Thora stared back. Not aggressively. Just because he was staring. Is this a staring contest?

Then, suddenly, he shook his head. And turned to...leave? Well, she had pointed out he was trespassing. Perhaps he was returning to his parents? Before she could ask more, she turned and found a cougar approaching. The one ruling beside Frigga, yes? Oh, helheim. Why couldn't she remember his name? Had she ever learned it? Wait. Who was he speaking to? She followed his gaze and found what must have been Frigga perched in a tree above.

She grinned at finding her amma spying on her. It had been a while since she'd really spent time with her grandmother. Maybe since Aurelius' death... "Greetings, Amma!" she called before focusing on the cougar. "Ah. Yes. Of course," she said as if she'd simply overlooked his suggestion. In reality, she'd never heard of such a thing.

She turned to watch the child continue to walk away. "So what do we...do?"

Overhead, Frigga chuckled at being found so easily by her mate and abandoned stealth mode. Hello, love, she greeted Xewk via link before flying down to the ground. Answering Thora, she said, "We ensure he's alright. If he is, then we let him return to his family." That said, she flew over and aimed to land in front of the white teenager. Staring up at her in the form of a large eagle (a wedge-tailed), Frigga smiled. "Hello, my dear. Are you lost? Or are your parents nearby?"

Well is it dark enough?
Can you see me?
Do you want me?
Can you reach me?

The skull-faced beast seemed to be deaf to the voices of the other creatures. The stranger was talking to someone. The male didn't turn his head to look or any other cue that would have indicated that he was aware. He continued on his way, turning around to leave.

One would have been surprised by the sudden landing of an eagle. One that spoke! The bone and dark giant's responded, which was new, but in a muted manner. He stopped, his eyes for a flash, widening, and for the smallest of moments, surprise. And then he looked at the eagle, his hellfire eyes staring at her with an unreadable expression.

But the flash of surprise sparked a reaction as Daemon activated and the hellhound's shadow's hackles raised and the nose became bumpy like it's teeth were bared. Was he surprised? Or was it annoyance at his attempt to leave being thwarted? It was unclear. The beast's shadow returned to normal after a few moments.

The bird asked the monochrome monster if he was lost or if his parents were nearby. The beast simply shook his head. Was he answering the first question, second, or both? Though his pelt carried only his scent and not of any other creatures, save for maybe ravens and blood.

The raven wolf then made an attempt to move around the raptor and continue on his way.

Thora frowned at the boy as he shook his head, walked around Frigga, and continued on. Was he...deficient? Did he not know how to act?

Frigga was beginning to think the boy hadn't been taught manners, or he was just very shy. Neither was not her place to rectify. He'd shaken his head at her questions. So, he wasn't lost and his parents weren't nearby is what she'd gathered. Then, he'd walked around her (which was why she was thinking he had a lack of manners).

She flew over to land in front of him once more, settling her wings at her side. There was one last question she had to ask. "Halt for a moment please. I have one more thing to ask, if you don't mind." Without giving him time to refuse, she said, "Do you require help?" Which was really her only concern. A teenager, alone, would suffer and possibly starve. However, if he wasn't alone, then he would be fine.
