Kaya sniffed at the remnants of a very stale cache, satisfied it had been some time since any pack maintained it. She was spending a few days on the mainland, recruiting for any brand of talent the Faction might appreciate. She was convinced there had to be more worthwhile wolves out there, first with Pepper than now, Yael. If she remained dedicated, kept searching - she would triumph.

She was hoping Crixus would wish for her to travel south soon enough. She enjoyed staying fit and active while the summer weather was kind to her, and she was so eager to see if she could get a glimpse of his children and see if they had potential.

Just imagine Larisa’s expression if she could sway one of the spawn to visit the Pearl. Kaya snickered to herself just thinking of it. She strode through the former pack lands, regal and almost smug as she envisioned what the future might hold.

When she had come in from the north, there was nowhere else to go. She scurried through the forests here and there until she found herself in a strange place indeed. A forest of gnarled trees and paths that wove through and under some of them. What a marvellous place! Annie set herself to exploring a bit, sniffing around the traces of an old pack with a bit of gusto to her steps.

It was as he came across a newer scent that she paused, stopping to process it. Some female had come through here. Her head came up and she scanned for a body, but saw only trees. Well, no matter. It wasn’t a territory anymore. The borders were long dead, she could tell that clearly.

This wasn’t a lingering scent, either, but one of a passersby like herself.

“Helloooo!” she called out. Her voice didn’t echo. In fact, it seemed to fall dead among the trees. How odd.

The sound of scurrying pawsteps was what Kaya heard first. Mmm. Lighter than she was. One of the former residents?

The peace was shattered by a common-sounding call of an elongated hello, altogether too jaunty for Kaya’s tastes. For heaven’s sake, didn’t anybody teach their offspring how to actually behave before they were thoughtlessly foisted out into the world?

Her own puppies would never be so crass. Kaya’s gaze fell upon a red-ringed grey wolf.

“Gracious child, approach your elders with a little more dignity, wouldn’t you?” She chided, though her tone was one of more exasperation than true anger.

Annie was excited to explore this strange place. To throw herself into it and really rutt around. What sort of animals could be hunted here? Were there squealing tree frogs? Dumb squirrels or birds? The woman that appeared put a stop to her thoughts though and Annie stared back at her as if she’d been struck.

“Pardon? Hard to know you’re an elder before I even see ya,” she retorted. Probably not… Damn it, Annie. Yet she delivered the truth. How was she to know without having set eyes on the pale woman before her? “Not a child no more either. Name’s Annie.”

She was… not a child. Though she was definitely youthful. She was old enough to be experienced and avoid altercation and yet she was dumb enough to… well.. yeah. Be an insensitive fuck and grate on the nerves of others sometimes.

Kaya’s blue-green eyes narrowed dangerously. “Your are pardoned.” She informed the girl somewhat loftily, irritation creeping into her voice. She winced when the girl spoke up with butchered grammar, Not a child no more.

“You certainly speak as one, Annie.” She replied sharply.  Urgh, and two different coloured eyes, she could already picture Crixus flinching in disgust from the young female. How common a creature she was. “If you are incapable of stringing words together correctly, you ought not speak at all.”

Kneph Rottie
 

Kneph was far, far from where he was comfortable - that place being close to Draven. But, with the beginning of night, he found himself unable to sleep and the call of adventure made his paws itch. He just had to go somewhere! On his way through the increasingly dense and gnarled forest, he marked a few times, so if Draven came looking for him, there was a fresh scent to follow!

Like little red riding hood, the male wove himself into the labyrinth with little caution, and eventually realized he was following a scent while daydreaming. Curious about the company, he padded at a moderate pace until voices bounced off the trees. There was a conversation going somewhere just ahead of him. It sounded like someone scolding a child, no, not a child. Annie.

The ginger man wiggled past a cluster of upturned roots and peeked his head past a skinny trunk. There they were!

“Erm, hello ladies,” his voice came out, unsure and rasped. While his fur was certainly on the rise, it was still patchy, still obvious he was in recovery. Without the presence of blood and scabs though, Kneph felt confident and made himself fully known. Both were bigger than him and the older one was grumpy, but this simply didn’t occur to him as a possibly dangerous situation.

Kneph had gone astray from his side and Draven couldn’t help but feel cold. The boy had become like a son to him, Draven’s guiding paws steering him in the right direction and neutralising whatever threat appeared along the way.

His eyes scanned the markers but his nose predominantly guided him through the weaving roots and large columns, his feet setting themselves quietly upon the dusty earth as he moved with a sense of stealth to him. His tail lay risen ever so slightly and his head remained level with his back as he strode on through the labyrinth of dirt and roots.

Muffled voices cuffed his ears to the distance, his pace remaining the same as he made his way on over. Kneph’s scent seemed to follow their direction but he couldn’t quite tell between the tones what was what and who was who - whoever was there creating the conversation.


(Will arrive in one round!)

Truth be told, Annie didn’t like how this woman spoke to her. She was a free wolf and was not going to change her own nature just because some old lady thought her manners weren’t up to her standards. Yet she felt a flash of relief as a male appeared and greeted them. She shot him a smile and then scrutinized the woman again. “If yer not offerin’ kindness, maybe you shouldn’t speak at all,” she shot back. Had she known Kaya’s type she might not have copped the attitude. But she hadn’t been met with manners at all, and all she had done was call hello into a forest. She was somehow meant to know the woman’s age and expectations before she even properly met her.

((SORRY GUYS just kick me if I take this long!))

A rather ragged looking wolf arrived, but at least this one knew how to approach another wolf. Kaya turned to nod a gracious mention to him, ignoring the girl’s childish comment altogether.

As if the world offered kindness for nothing. She would be chewed up and spat out, at least, so Kaya hoped.

“Ah, somebody with some manners.” Even if Kaya wasn’t about to get within tail’s length of the mangy looking creature. “Good evening, sir. Kaya Silvano, Gladia of the Imperial Faction.”

They both acknowledged him - a nice smile from the younger woman, and a formal greeting from the older one. Manners? He barely held in an audible laugh. Nobody had ever told him he had manners before, so it was an odd feeling.

“Er, manners? Yeah, sure!” He didn’t know what the string of words after her name meant, but he could only assume it was a pack thing. They were always so picky about their titles. “Nice t’meet ya’! I’m Kneph, and who’s this?” He asked, referring to Annie. Behind him, he could vaguely hear the approaching of another wolf. It was Draven! His tail started wagging as he looked behind him, waiting for the man to come into view. While he waited, he took a seat and looked back at the women. “So, uh…what’s going on here?”

Draven Vaès Calico
 

Draven could recognise Kneph’s awkward voice anywhere. Not quite - if at all - like Draven’s richer, resonant timbre. The bloke was unique, most definitely and Draven admired him for that. He didn’t fit in with the crowd and that made him the likeable guy he was.

He couldn’t quite make out what they were saying but Draven could tell by the tone of Kneph, he wasn’t quite the bouncy castle he normally was. He seemed almost awkward. It made his pace quicken just slightly to approach the group of three. It was three right?

The brute emerged from amongst the tree roots with his head lowered in order to not knock the lights out of him. By this point, he’d slowed to a quiet pad, calculated and precise in his placement of the large paws he owned. Coming up alongside Kneph, he lifted his head and stood with a well-presented silence, stoicism plastered across his features like a lord commander.

His blue eyes travelled across the group. A woman, older, sporting a textured pelt of silvery white. He gave her a respectful nod of acknowledgement first, almost like a salute as he portrayed his straightened posture. “Ma’am” he said in correlation to the nod.

Looking to next girl, Kneph’s age, Draven couldn’t deny she was pretty but she appeared to be spitting feathers at the older woman. The brute didn’t linger on her long after he’d repeated his nod, turning his eyes to Kneph to see if he was okay. He simply looked at the boy with slight worry in his eyes, not a word passing from his lips. He allowed himself sufficient time to receive a response or equal gaze from the boy until he looked back to the pair.

“Draven Vaès, a friend of Kneph’s. What is the occasion I have stumbled upon?” he hummed, his tones rumbling in his throat.

| for real. Just picture Thorin when he speaks. holy heck

((Skipping Annie for now to keep this going, Dapper dear jump in when you can!))

The younger boy didn’t quite form all his words properly, but thank goodness the older one knew better. Somebody has actually taught him to enunciate. Kaya would take what small relief she could.

Kenph asked about the rude girl and Kaya laid her ears back a fraction, a lofty look on her face. “Nobody I know.” She responded coolly. And nobody she cared to.

Her gaze went to Draven as he introduced himself. She noted he carried a surname, whereas his scruffy little friend did not. “Simply scouting the area, as my pack resides nearby. And yourselves, gentleman?”

Nobody I know. Well, now, that was just rude, he thought to himself. Kaya was getting her fur in a ruffle over Annie being “rude” but she was just going to say stuff like that? It didn’t sit right with Kneph so he decided he wasn’t too fond of the older woman. Even worse, her pack was nearby, and if they all acted like she did, Kneph didn’t really want to meet them.

She asked what they were doing, and he wished he could say something better than just “walking around” and “exploring the area”. He and Draven had big plans just starting, but was that something he was supposed to tell her?

Kneph leaned into Draven almost instinctively for some semblance of comfort and decided to let him do the talking. Meanwhile, Kneph was eyeing Annie, and if he caught her eyes, he’d soundlessly mouth: ‘Are you okay?’

The woman, though old, did not show signs of a skilled stoic disposition. Draven noted this as her ears flickered back when Kneph mentioned the feathery girl. The pair obviously weren’t partial to each other’s company.

That didn’t phase Draven however, the male knew when to seek his own battles and this wasn’t one of them. He simply took whatever the white woman said and gave a acknowledging nod, keeping his expression checked.

Turning his gaze back to Kneph as the boy meant in, Draven looked him over once before turning his eyes back to the woman. Kneph was a sensitive soul, for sure. Didn’t know when to pick his battles. “Scouting, like yourself. I have hopes of setting up shop in the evergreens to the east.” Enough information, but nothing solid. Draven hadn’t found the place of his dreams yet.

As much as draven wished to cuff Kneph over the ear for his actions, the dark male remained placid. “Sorry, I didn’t catch your name?” He asked with a ponderous hum.

Kaya was not impressed by the scruffy male not only saying nothing, but mouthing something - she only saw it from the corner of her eye so she had no idea what - at the rude young girl. He was as worthless in manners as the child and her eyes narrowed at his rudeness. It was perhaps, only Draven that held any worth, not stupid enough to take sides. And so, he was setting himself up to be a pack leader? My my my…

“Well, that will interest my co-leader, Crixus - we are to be neighbors, it seems.” She revealed, thoughtfully looking over the dark male. “Silvano, is my name. Kaya Silvano, Gladia of the Imperial Faction. Perhaps you should visit our territory soon, and I can make introductions.”

However if he allowed spineless scruffballs like the one hanging off him like a parasite, Kaya doubted Crixus would be impressed.

Meeting Draven’s eyes, Kneph felt a bit disappointed in himself - he knew he was being rude after the fact, but it just never occurred to him before the fact. Shamefully, he looked down and away, practically able to feel both of their eyes boring into him.

Great. Now he’s the asshole. If he were any more obtuse, he’d pout, but now was definitely not the time.

“Am I invited?” He suddenly asked, mostly out of curiosity to see if Kaya would straight up tell him no. In truth, he didn’t want to go in the first place.
