Tomas felt the heaviness that was still burning upon his body in a way that would not be met to a confrontation. It was an unwise thought to measure himself across the ground too far, knowing that distance would only begin to reaffirm that mindset which had settled across the vengeful youth of the mountain. Their home was indeed upon collapse, and yet in the rash instinct to drive those who could be associated with the pain - they brought upon a destruction. They shattered the barriers which had sheltered them in part.

The male had been left finding his way back to th caves, soon enough, although he was unsure of who he would be met with. It had been a fair assessment that the adults in the mountain wolves’ lives had been someone of a disappointment. But he had tried. He had seen the flash on Igbo’s face, and he had heard the sharpness of words that had not been for him.

But Tomas was not the sort to be like a mosquito, basking in the blood source when it was better to take a break and try again. Time to breathe, time to question things of a bolder brim was his route. It was why he found himself questioning who it would be that would need a speech, who would need to be told of the woe that would come to pass.

Tail slashed the air, his eyes glancing toward the depth of the cave that he had once upon a time wary to enter within the gates of.

But it was hardly even a Hellish gate, anymore. It was a dank cave full of broken expectations.

He was not an imaginative child, or an enterprising one.  Ideas came to him slowly and took their time to coalesce.

He had been snarling at all the adults in his life for weeks now without knowing what it meant.  He had chased Tomas out of the cave, had intimidated Igbo, had backed up Kopec and all her posturing, but he couldn’t see where any of that was going.  Not quite.

The facts plodded slowly into sight.  They were flimsy.  They had no skills.  They must be taught to fight, and guard their border, as they had (sort of) been taught to hunt.

He would get the things he needed.  The mountain belonged to the Daniels children, alive or dead.

Tomas was sniffing at the Hellmouth as he approached from behind.  Tych advanced stiffly until the older wolf realized he was there.

“Teach me to fight.”

The boy that finally drew to him, as Tomas allowed his thoughts to stray was accompanied with a faint shock. While the boy was spiking in height, eventually he would fully surpass. He would be something of a beast by the time he tapped out, and his chest dropped.

The ever silent Tychus had found his words, and the demand that was thrown onto the air was accompanied with Tomas’ seafoam eyes to turn and land on the boy. Fighting. It was a dangerous thing to begin teaching those who could have been hell-bent on revenge.

And yet.

His head inclined, and he shifted to face the boy, gesturing his muzzle out toward th lake. “Open ground, for us, then.” His comfortable words were the answer, a faint smile pained across his features.

You know how to kill a mouse, or perhaps something bigger? A rabbit?” While he had been scolding himself for not being present for hunting lessons, there had been little time. With Nima gone, the will to tach hunting had… been utterly manipulated into needing to fill the stomachs of those who should have been learning.

The only response he provided at first was to step back, implying that Tomas lead the way.  His face was impassive, guarded, the dead mask he had been wearing for weeks now.  Watching this fine-featured adult, he nodded.  Yes.  He hunted rabbits, groundhogs.  Mice.

The boy lapsed into silence, as was the signature to what he knew most of about Tychus. It was not a bad thing, those who held their mouth tied shut often heard all the secrets of the world.

For a moment, he felt a reason to want to grow a kinship with the boy, to be useful. it was why he nodded his head as well, his eyes flicking.

When it comes to the act of fighting a wolf, the idea is much the same. Blind them, they can’t see you. Bite them, they bleed. You find the soft parts - they bleed harder, you hit bone, and often your bite is lousy.” The words were comfortable, running his mind through what was the most important things that the male himself knew.

The key to defeating a wolf, Tychus, is maintaining your calm. You are large boy, powerful; but if you think like an angry, drooling wolf - then even the smallest could take you down.

Sometimes Tychus was a rock, but he was also a sponge.  Tomas’s words bled into the porous parts of his thinking and began to color his world.  To bleed and blind, to rip the soft parts, this was a way to keep himself safe.  A way to thresh the intruders who came to his mountain and threatened his sisters.

He thought about soft parts.  Unshielded bellies.  Tender throats and cheeks and grippable haunches.  Sometimes, unexpectedly, a bite that would bleed and bleed.  His unstructured knowledge of harm and bodies whirled through his brain, but he realized he was missing the second topic.

Calm.

His head tilted in response, a guarded question.  You were not powerful when you were calm.

The glint in the intelligent eyes of Tychus Daniels told Tomas, the ever faith servant, that the boy was indeed listening. The intelligence that seemed to pour out of him was a critical mass, and he found himself stopping - swinging himself around to face the boy head on.

If I keep calm, I can see what you’re doing,” He elaborated, “If you are wild, you do not see me. You may see my teeth coming for you,” He slid a paw forward, visually putting it between the ever-growing boy’s legs. “But then I’m tripping you because you’re not thinking about what else I am doing.” Tail lifting, Tomas could feel the old energy brewing. Yes; he’d take the boy on. Yes, he would work with the boy, make him into a killer.

The thought was depressing - but even Tomas, with his smile and sweet word, knew the value of being able to take a male down.

If you’re angry, you lose your purpose. You want to inflict harm, down your opponent; if you are smarter, then you will. If you play by emotion, you will be on your back - or worse.” His eyes flashed, and he fought to avoid tacking on the words.

Your mother knew that well.

And yet, look what she had done. Picking emotion over intelligence.

Thinking, thinking hard, Tychus’s mouth slowly shaped a silent word.  It was true, that unleashing a rage meant going blank, meant only seeing glimpses of things and not the details.  But he was not sure he believed that calm could win you a fight, if calm meant holding still and watching.  His head lowered as Tomas’s posture lifted, something between submission and defense.

He could hear his breath dusting the earth an inch below his nose.  Tomas’s calloused paw was placed ahead and to the left of it.

Experimentally, spontaneously, he snapped his head out to grip the leg and pull it backwards.

__
Attack: grabbing at Tomas’s leg and trying to pull him off balance
Defense: none

It was just as easy as that in which things shifted, and he was no longer permitted to give countless explanations. Passion was indeed not as coherent with calm, although there was a subtly that Tomas did not feel best at articulating.

The boy studied, the boy absorbed - and then the boy moved. The boy ducked, going for his leg that Tomas had all but presented in his demonstration, and he followed with his eyes as his body shifted, twisting his rear to go with the moment. Ears flattened, and his eyes narrowed as he leaned forward to crowd the boy’s moving head.

Remember your back feet,” He volunteered with a helpful finesse, then he went for the prince’s scruff - jaws cracking open as his muzzle turned right. as he felt teeth connect with his leg, letting his leg be lifted, sidestepping to try and prevent the bigger boy from knocking him over. Teeth went to pinch, to perhaps even break the skin - the boy needed to feel his own blood, get the marker out of the way.



Attack: going for the right side of Tychus’ scruff, minimal pressure but pinchy crab-pincher teeth
Defense: ears back, stance squared off to the side to keep momentum
Injury/Positioning Extra: Left leg freely in Tychus’ mouth, loose and fully manipulatable

First they swayed together, Tomas meeting Tych’s move with a gentle dance.  Oily words dripped into his ears, and then a warning bite snared itself into his neck, sharp enough to make him flinch.

His jaws pressed down against the pain, and experimenting again, he threw his weight to the left, again trying to topple Tomas by turning his legs against him.  He veered sideways, threatening to roll and feeling the thick skin tear at the back of his neck.

__
Attack: biting hard enough to break skin but not attempting to do damage; basically trying again to pull his left leg over to the right but putting a lot more gusto into it and being bouncier
Defense: nah, just low center of gravity
Injury: good hold on his scruff; damage depends on how hard Tomas holds while he struggles

Tychus was, really, quite differently built to the way that Tomas was. The fact was more than noticeable as he gauged the size of the muzzle around his paw, and watched as the boy thrashed against his hold. The moment the faintest scent of blood hit the air, Tomas released, leaning back with the momentum.

When teeth hit, he knew the damage had been done; a light flesh wound that would result in the pressure that the boy had applied. While it was dangerous, his body leaned back - showing off the bendability, and Tomas sank low. The moment had him twisting, forcing himself to sink low to the ground - his poised position being dislodged enough to being forced to take a few steps, trying to slow down the twist that would perhaps down him if things had been more desperate.

Watch,” The demand was sharp, before with snarled lips he parted his jaws wide and reached to try and slide his jaws over the boy’s face, refusing to apply pressure, but in a twist - he knew he could angle the lower jaw toward the boy’s eye.

It wasn’t too powerful, but the instinct to save one’s vision was always critical. It put the boy at a disadvantage going low to be in fuller reach of Tomas. Tomas’ teeth clicked as they snapped closed.

Attack: Wide open jaws positioned around upper face by right eye, closing jaws faintly in a mock snap
Defense: Lowering body toward the ground, leaning back to try and gain ground
Positioning/Injury: Minor broken skin on leg, unbalanced briefly - ~70% restabilized.

Foiled!

The grip on his nape disappeared, leaving a bouncing Tych unsettled.  The rules were different than those of wrestling with his sisters, and he did not know how to adapt. 

Watch, Tomas said, and then there was a canine pointed into his eye, and he flinched convulsively down and released the leg.  He heard the warning snap of teeth and shuffled backwards, gathering his legs up under him again.

If given the opportunity, he had no other idea than to stare quizzically at his new mentor, his heart thumping.

Tomas found himself bemused, although impressed. It was about releasing and going back in, a quicker method for the wolf who was slighter. But as the boy cringed back, Tomas advanced, he pushed himself up against the boy with a breathy growl, feeling th thrumming sharp with conviction.

You are big,” He grumbled, his mouth opening as he showed his canines, giving the boy a chance to breathe. The lack of impulse was a good one, the boy didn’t press. “Stay in my space.” Tomas pushed his weight, looking to lean into the boy. “Get a smaller wolf down and they’re at a severe disadvantage.

I back up, and I’m suddenly faster than you - I can run circles around you, tire you out. You are a mountain, I am a mouse.” His tongue flicked across his lips.

But a mouse can bring a mountain down with moving a single stone, as long as it does not get squished while doing so.

Tomas came after him, and the first thing that filled Tychus up was uncertainty; for a moment he was cowed, a cautious young pup out of his depth.  He watched Tomas’s snarling mouth and pushed out a determined breath, collecting himself to begin again.

Get a smaller wolf down.  He was the smaller wolf today and must not be trapped.  He must back up, and dodge around, but also crowd in and hold and release and hold.  Tomas’s words kept making guarantees and promises, he couldn’t picture, though surely if he could do all those things at once he would be an impossible target.  Sometimes the mountain, sometimes the mouse.

His gaze fixed just above Tomas’s head, and he twisted and pounced, oversized head snapping at the meat of Tomas’s left ear.  He fell, all elbows, in a new attempt to bite and smush the older wolf into submission.

| not actually totally sure on the size difference with these two…Tych might be taller already, but he hasn’t filled out at all yet.  :P Works either way though, so no worries!

The young male was learning, he was thinking. While the cringe back was not unexpected, it was something that the male was going to have to learn to work through. Arrogance, if anything, was what wolves of the valley breathed. Igbo could not teach them arrogance, for his own cam through his knowledge - Tomas understood, in part, the fair side of the physical as well.

When his eyes drifted, Tomas watched the boy’s head. He found himself leaning with the momentum as Tychus’ body went upwards, feeling his muzzle slide down along Tychus’ shoulder at the boy went up.

Tomas went with the motion, turning his head down as jaws snapped onto his ear - and Tomas pulled, judging the boy to have not tightened his jaws enough more than to receive superficial wounds.

Tomas?

He went low, looking to slide beneath the lifted posture, outstretching his jaws as if he might curl his teeth around the fleshy, upper rear side of Tychus’ right front leg.

| My thoughts would have been on the height difference, or, y’know… Tomas just foreshadowing the inevitable. ;)

Tomas’s sleek head slipped free of his grasp, and Tych’s frustration reached a zenith at again having his plans for domination overturned.  Snarling after the ear, he kicked the sought-after leg up, sliding with ungainly fervor over Tomas’s back to bite again at the male, and this time hold.  He twisted around to bite again at Tomas’s face, conscious of the danger to his fluffy undercarriage.
