10/4/17 — Baraenor has officially entered its third IC year! Welcoming the new year with a harsh winter that will hopefully bring promise of a better spring. In other news, the third stage of the board wide plot has been temporarily suspended until such time we have a few people that have completed stage two. This is to give people time to catch up as well as keep all surprises of each stage given via in character interactions. We will let you know when the next stage is released. =)

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one. Rogue's will receive -5% heath per IC Winter Month this go around instead of the normal -3% so it's recommended they find homes soon.

Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded. Due to smaller numbers at the current time, we have opted to close two of the prides in order to try and fill the remaining ones a bit better. Kyvar will remain open and ready for reclaiming as it was one of the original prides on the forum.

7/31/17 — Cootie will be gone from August 3rd-18th, on a trip to Japan! Please direct any concerns to Jolee during this time, as she'll be back from her absence then to keep things up and running.

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway!

5/25/17 — Lots of updates and changes are coming to Baraenor! With the removal of the pride limit - how many lions will be searching to stake their claims on their own lands?

Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

02/26/17 — Things have been said, and heard! A new update comes on the horizon and with it comes a fighting system that we hope will keep the 'hands off' approach, while remaining fair to everyone involved. You can find it Here!

02/20/17 — To all our lovely members, we provide a brief update to let everyone know that we now have a special forum under Art Corner where we are housing all the wonderful editable line arts that we have been able to get with your gracious donations. These are available for member use only and password protected so if you are wishing to use them please PM Tabs or Jolee in order to get the password. Currently there is only an infant cub line art available, but more will be added as Ale-Tie completes them. =)

02/13/17 — It's been a week since our opening, and we've put out an Update!. In this update, we welcome a new staffer, and two new prides! Don't forget the current contests we have going on! Some will end coming up here soon.

If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates

04/01/19 Summer is in full swing and things are getting very hot! Water and prey are scarce and because of that, everyone is having to travel further and further to find food- food that could possibly be diseased. Because of the stress and strain of supporting a pride with meager amounts of food and water, all the prides have disbanded- some choosing to stay near and work together while others scatter from the places they called home. When will this never ending heatwave end? Who will rise up in the aftermath to rebuild the vast amount of prides that have fallen? Thats an answer even Noemi and Neomi don't have!

3/03/19 With the coming of Spring there is change in the air. Anima, Vilmos Lev and Harcos have all fallen...perhaps because of a harsh winter or maybe it was because of the hotter than usual spring? All of Baraenor seems to be warmer than usual and with each passing month stranger things seem to occur. Diseased animals are now being noticed (after they are killed), but thus far none have been brave enough to try the meat to see what would happen! What is going on in Baraenor? Only time will tell!

1/28/19 Ishta Kaola has merged with Anima, bringing the pride to be the largest upon Baraenor. While Sana disbands, Harcos forms in the making after Virag leaves from Vilmos Lev. Sandor has claimed a land for himself, and Eros Vihar slowly begins to thrive in the Aurora Mountains. Despite the chilling season, Winter welcomes new lives... but will the cold claim them away as well?

12/30/18: One of the largest established prides in Baraenor - Grimwood - disbands. Their leader Beetle has disappeared without a trace. New prides form with the fall of old prides, as Athens, too disbanded from the disappearance of their empress Bloom. Ishta Kalo is born from Zayn's claim on land in the Ethereal Forest and Byrn takes up root in Fessinger Grove with Shy'ath Grove. Among the chaos another pride rises in Hitad Springs - Paradox Rim claimed by Rei. What will this mean for the future relations of Paradox Rim and Iqniq?

11/05/18: — Noemi wins dominance over her sister Neomi! Evil-aligned characters may find their luck has drastically improved, and Baraenor may begin to see some very unusual offspring in the coming months - results of the spiritual unrest throughout the land. Speaking of spirits, the ghosts may begin to feel the pull of the Fields again as their time of freedom draws to a close. Sant Hem and Anima have dissolved, but three more have risen in their place, with Lochlan retaking Anima's old territory and both Stirling and Gabriel staking their own seperate claims in Naru Jungle.

09/25/18 — The goddesses continue to clash, and currently it is Noemi of the abyss with the most control - wielding her strength to influence the more unsavory characters of Baraenor. The upset of energies have unleashed the dearly departed freely into the land, and as the ghosts roam untethered, trouble brews between Imperio Sangre and Grimwood over the untimely demise of the young white tiger, Catherine. Just across the river, Empress Icefang of Luminosa sucessfully incapacitates Tyr, holding the former Sant Hem king in her territory while she decides his fate.

09/15/18 — As the land cools off, a new pride arises in the vale; Noctis led by King Agrippa. The scorned Andromède also takes Duskhollow from her former mate, renaming it to Athens. Baraenor's deities continue to plague the population with dreams and summons, and many have already gone to their respective strongholds with offerings to prove their loyalties. As the sisters grow stronger, what lies ahead when winter comes creeping in?

08/07/18 — Baraenor is in the middle of its usual summer heat wave, but that hasn't stopped the residents from trying to maintain their strongholds as resources begin to dwindle. Former Imperio empress (and heiress) Icefang has stepped out of her family's land to establish Luminosa across the river, while elsewhere Rothadt Erdő's king disappears and the pride dissolves. Otherwise it's business as usual, even if there's some strange goings-on down in the darkest recesses of the Phantom Bayou.

06/20/18 — Spring is here! The residents of Baraenor are a little worse for wear, but new legacies begin as Irkbaan Veistul establishes Rothadt Erdő along the eastern coast and Solomon Kivasante follows in his father's footsteps to revive Anima within the ethereal forest. But the land is never without its pockets of violence - Sant Hem's Tyr Rankeshson attempts to make Sundew pay for her insubordination while his heir Roanoke X'uekai is engaged in a death match against Grave Delekr.

05/06/18 — The skies begin to settle but down below the fights rage on, as new king Tyr Rankeshson of Sant Hem challenges Agnar's king Fenris Káruson to a death match. A few hopefuls have made their bids for leadership as well in the wake of Diello Lake's recent flooding and disbandment - the lioness Magdalene founds Izalith along the shores of Avaar Lagoon, the recently displaced Disa Kivasante vies for the throne of Imperio Sangre's Nikiri X'uekai and Kalios Grengar calls upon Duskhollow king Baldur Blackheart to defend his position.

04/10/18 — All hell breaks loose in Fessinger Grove as Diello king Zayn Kivasante leads a raid into Aerodeck's territory, with the recently-established Agnar's Empress Gunnr caught in the crossfire as the violence rapidly escalates. In the thick of the battle, Archduchess Sylvanas - one of Skol's own - turns on her king and challenges him for his crown. It seems the chaos has heralded the converging of the twin moons once again, as they draw ever closer to each other and cause all manner of astrological phenomena!

03/21/18 — With the increased availablity of resources, power begins to shift again, especially in Fessinger Grove - where Parvana re-takes Mirah Shores when Camilla disappears and Beetle Halfsbane departs from Diello Lake to stake her claim of Grimwood along the swamp's eastern edge. Another Diello lioness, Adélaide, also establishes Wintertide along the coast of Perisod Moor, and the rogue Nikiri X'uekai takes a portion of Norren Savanna after the scent markers of Caranox Plains are nowhere to be found.

03/07/18 — Spring is in the air, lifting some of the strains off of Baraenor's population. Food is becoming plentiful again, and with it the promise of a bit more peace among the prides. At least, in theory. Diello's resident tiger Luka attacks High King Skol of Aerodeck after some shady dealings involving one of her pridemates, Hillevi, who in turn makes an arrangement with Solomon in an effort to swear her loyalty. Within the territory of the Nomads itself, Morana issues a challenge against the now former heiress Buttermilk for her title - only for the cheetah to have disappeared, and for newcomer Sylvanas to answer in her place, while Heiress Absinthe of Itthon Nyers comes across Grave of Atral Fen in the bayou, and he ultimately kills her when she attacks him out of bloodlust.

02/18/18 — As the winter season rages on, Reshmi steps up to take over Adhina Cascade in the wake of Lennox's disappearance, renaming it Ashok Basin, while the young Skol Rankeshson makes a deal with the tiger Shrine in order to obtain control of the Aerodeck Nomads. Rostam Delekr takes Paradise, now Itthon Nyers, from Damien - and Nahlot Viitaas makes a bid for Mirah Shores, her challenge answered by current Empress Camilla Delekr.

02/04/18 — Nine prides - and one clan of creatures - have officially established themselves across Baraenor, making competition inevitable for land and resources. With well over twenty members a piece, Diello Lake and Ko'mox Fields have grown to megapride status and could certainly start putting strains on their neighbors. Things are already heating up in Fessinger Grove as new Empress Parvana of Mirah Shores sets her sights on driving the Aerodeck Nomads out of the swamp by raiding their territory!

01/28/18 — Four prides have dissolved under the pressure of the winter snows, paving the way for an ambitious few to build new empires in their wake. Deep in Naru Jungle, however, a battle rages as Solomon, the High King of Diello Lake, challenges Jorunn, Archduchess of Paradise to a death match!

01/20/18 — Eilif, King of Brogan Criostail, is challenged by one Priscilla Delekr for his crown after a disagreement over a young girl named Sakura! Elsewhere, the Empress and Emperor of Ko'mox Fields relocates their pride to the forest, and tensions rise in Starfall Crater over the fate of a trio of newborn cubs after their mother passes away from complications. In the wake of all this, the winter season makes itself known across Baraenor - promising to be one of the harshest yet.

01/04/18— With October comes changes! Damien defeats Varion as ruler of Elysian Summit and has some nefarious plans brewing. Zayn, King of Diello Lake, has managed to cling on to life after a grueling five day healing session by Disa. What does he do upon waking, however? Challenge Sant Hem for Jorunn! Winter is closing in on Baraenor, and with hardships on the way and prides growing more and more unsteady, where will the new season take us?

12/1/17 — As always, new prides appear while, sometimes simultaneously, existing prides vanish. Relations between these prides all lean toward alliances, which leads to a baby boom that is a mix of inter-pride passion and the Witch Doctor's influence. Meanwhile, strange occurrences begin to circulate through the rumor mill. Whispers of a white stag are abound, and folks are also beginning to speak of other creatures speaking lion-tongue. A leopard, a crocodile.. what else might Baraenor become a home for in the future?

11/4/17 — Much has happened in the last few months! The Witch Doctor continues his conquest to finish his goals.. Beware those of you who are of the dearly departed! In the meantime - multiple prides have fallen over the harsh winter months, leaving Baraenor down to six! With fewer prides, it means that there are alot of creatures looking to stake their own claims on the land. A few challenges are liable to crop up!

9/9/17 — The ocean recedes, forging a path to the mysterious island northeast of the mainland. However, it's an eerie locale, veiled by fog and ghostly voices that beckon the living to come and explore. Surely there's some correlation between it and the wandering souls that have been released from their bonds to the Memoire Fields, drifting across Baraenor as they did in life, searching for the reason behind their newfound freedom.

8/31/2017Anima Falls King Nevermore discovers the gruesome scene of his son's death and wife's capture, forcing him to abandon his territory and leave Baraenor in search of the culprit. Takira "Taske" Neron becomes the Empress of the forest in his stead, the shift in power quiet and undisturbed. On the opposite side of the map, Maranon Basin is founded in Mystall Ridge by Empress Devana and her mate, Helios, and becomes Baraenor's northernmost pride.

8/20/2017 — The unrelenting heat takes a toll on its inhabitants, but time marches on and not even the season can halt the rise and fall of monarchs across the land. When Kyvar Morass is left vacant once again, it is reclaimed by Livanna Varg, such that the jungle sees its first Empress in the wake of a harshly patriarchal past. Azil Hollow, having outlived its usefulness as a sanctuary in the mountains, is also abandoned and vanishes from the map - at least for now.

7/24/2017 — Baraenor is on the cusp of a heated summer, and with it the promise that the turmoil will ebb away a little - if only for now. Hard-pressed former queen Isadora takes over the abandoned Azil Hollow as its Empress and a young and amibitious Kaiden lays claim to the jungle of Kyvar Morass, while Mordred ascends the throne of Murkwood Grotto not long after his brother vanished. The survivors of the clash between the Delekr family and their outcasts are seeking vengeance, claiming the wives left behind as their own or holding them prisoner as punishment.

7/10/17 — In the wake of the strange astral phenomena, cubs are born with fur like the night sky in Anima Falls, and the tensions between Azil Hollow and Kyvar Morass finally erupt into a bloody battle on the grasslands. Four are killed - including Azil's king and one of his children - leaving the desolate Hollow in the paws of its young heir. Not long afterwards, Kyvar Morass and Murkwood Grotto both lose their kings. Will others take up their mantles, or are they destined to fade into obscurity?

6/27/17 — The moons grow closer and closer, one threatening to eclipse the other, the zenith of this strange phenomenon fast approaching as tensions run high across Baraenor. Skellryn Vale sees a new king not long after the death of its empress, when her heir Lilith is captured by Kyvar Morass and a lion named Artaxias claims the abandoned prideland. Another Delekr has taken over Murkwood Grotto in the wake of the prior king's disappearance, though the site of his claim is anything but peaceful, as the newly crowned Lennox immediately challenges for Rakel, a lioness of Mirah Shores, after a few heated words. Elsewhere, a strange pool charged with moonlight has revealed itself in Ethereal Forest - where did it come from, and what could it mean?

6/10/17 — A massive power shift consumes the land when Korrin is run from his territory and stripped of his name by his father Rhask and eldest brother Haru upon their arrival. Korrin and his loyalists flee to the mountains and establish Azil Hollow, while Haru himself takes the Kyvar Morass throne. Two other prides pop up elsewhere - Skellryn Vale and Navtiv Valley - while young Delekr Havok lays claim to the again abandoned Steppes, renaming it Murkwood Grotto and moving it to Ragefire Peaks. The heavens seem to be mimicking the chaos down below as the twin moons move ever closer together; stars are raining across the sky and a particularly large meteor has made landfall in Perisod Moor.

5/22/17 — When the King of Aellexus Steppes unexpectedly dies, the chance to claim the title emerges. Within minutes of the occurrence, a lion named Nevermore attempts to claim Ethereal Forest for his own. No more than 4 hours after, a lion named Vyper attempts to secure the savanna. Will these males go unchallenged, or will they be forced to fight for the title? Read more here and here.

5/12/17 — After the unexpected disbandment of Kyvar Morass, Korrin seeks to reclaim his title. Will he go unchallenged, or will blood be shed once more by the lions of the jungle? Read more here.

5/9/17 — True to what we've grown to expect, there is always something big going on in Mirah Shores. This time, it is a battle for the title of Queen. Hannibal, a fairly new addition to the pride, has her sights set on something big. After regaining her title so recently, Isadora loses it quicker than most of us expected. Newly crowned and ready to flaunt it, Hannibal goes so far as to invite the King's brother Barbas to her den for the night. Are more cubs on the horizon for this eclectic pride?

5/9/17 — Kirena of Mirah Shores, who just lost her only remaining cub (Sabryn) to a crocodile and has been outranked by a slave despite being the King's wife, is losing her mind. Not only does she find her assumed deceased son (Exodus) alive and well; she does not believe that he is actually her son. Sure that she would not be allowed to keep the boy due to feeling neglected, Kirena intends to alert Ezekael and leave it at that, though when Ezekael arrives, he solidifies Kirena's thoughts by calling for Isadora to care for the cub. Kirena, now feeling even further betrayed and unhinged, calls Isadora to a death match! Isadora, contrary to what we've seen of her battling in the past, goes for the kill without a second thought. Ezekael attempts to calm the situation, but it escalates regardless, one wife intent on killing another. Coincidentally enough, Graham from Iron Mountains has been loitering around the territory, even going so far as to having a private conversation with Kirena in an attempt to figure out what her turmoil is all about. The King of the Mountains leaps to the defense of Kirena, intent on turning the tables of the Death Match onto Isadora instead. Somehow Isadora manages to dodge Graham entirely, and the Death Match halts abruptly. Barbas slides in to seek compromise and diplomacy, but Graham has had enough with being nice to this pride that seems to be in shambles due to outside forces. He demands that Kirena be released to his care, and Ezekael gives her up like he'd never married her at all. Kirena flees in one direction, Chani the cub flees in another, and Graham leaves with the few members of his pride that have shown up.

5/9/17 — Just when you think things are settling down, two lionesses are killed in freak accidents caused by Mother Nature! Civali of Kyvar Morass is crushed beneath a fallen tree, leaving her husband Mordred and her son Dogo to grieve. Sabryn, a cub of Kirena's, of Mirah Shores is eaten alive by a massive crocodile who seems now to be a permanent fixture of Avaar Lagoon. Heartbreakingly enough, Kirena takes this loss extremely hard, having lost her son shortly after the litter was born. Shortly thereafter, Voluspa, current Queen, after giving birth and claiming Isadora's cubs as her own, travels to Iron Mountains in search of the King. Graham is quick to answer, and asks her what she might need. Suddenly we see Voluspa as never before, looking over her shoulder as though followed, crying out for help from the heterochromatic King of the Mountains. She tells him that Ezekael raped Isadora! Seeking justice, questioning his alliance to the Shores, Graham hustles his way to Fessinger Grove to find answers. Once there, with Ezekael and most of his pride (only one child is curious enough to check out the commotion) present, Graham explains his presence and calmly asks for the truth. Ezekael denounces Voluspa as Queen, stating it was always Isadora, but Voluspa, newly made slave, proves him wrong by using her Witch Doctor ability to summon an ancestral leader who will answer two questions truthfully. Graham breaks the alliance between Iron Mountains and Mirah Shores, leaving in disgust.

5/9/17 — Meanwhile, the new King of Iron Mountains has received the perfect initiation.. a challenge for his crown! Vyper, new to Baraenor but ambitious enough to rival all inhabitants, eventually succumbs to Graham, leaving the Mountain stronghold exactly as it was. On the northern side of the realm, more misfortune has befallen Mirah Shores, their Archduchess Tishala in particular. After happening upon a rogue lioness in Rysen Grasslands, the females are approached by Kyvar Morass' infamous grouch, Mordred. In his usual fashion, the red-maned male lays claim to the rogue immediately, and even Gersemi the Queen arrives to welcome their newest addition. At first it seems all will be well, for Tishala attempts to leave without a fight, but Mordred does the unthinkable and tries to claim her, despite her already belonging to Mirah Shores! Quick to the rescue is the King himself, charging in to protect his pride member. Absolute chaos erupts when Ezekael's brother Barbas, Heir to the throne, follows along and attempts to even the score by claiming Gersemi, who is unknowingly pregnant at this time. Korrin, her husband, descends on Barbas to protect Gersemi, calling for war between their prides in the process. One by one the crowd piles in to witness the majesty of Ezekael vs Mordred for Mirah Shores and Korrin vs Barbas for Gersemi. During this intense instance, Korrin is defeated by Barbas, making Gersemi a member of Mirah Shores, and while Korrin is down, his brother Gideon swoops in to claim the crown for Kyvar Morass'. Ezekael defeats Mordred in the end, leaving the prides to disperse to care for their wounded and process the state of hostility with their closest neighbor.

5/9/17 — Continuing on the same train of thought from our last update, we have surprising news from Mirah Shores. No sooner than Voluspa charging in for the kill did Isadora attempt to escape, only to be thwarted by her own brother-in-law, Barbas, and Voluspa herself. Ezekael is not present in this moment, when Voluspa strikes Isadora down to the rank of slave (a first in Baraenor's young life), for attempting to abort her litter. Gideon, who at this time was still Kyvar's sub-King, pays witness to all of the madness which unfolds here, giving him an intimate look into the workings of this oceanic pride.

04/5/17 — Much has happened since our last update! Voluspa has challenged Isadora to a death match after finding her attempting to abort her cubs, while also pregnant herself! Aellexus Steppe has a new King, Evander, and has started accepting members at a growing rate. It seems that testosterone has run rampant through the lands of Baraenor, especially Kyvar Morass. Korrin has a new Queen, who's filled to the brim with his young; he's also chased his brother, Gideon, from the land for choosing a woman over family! Both brothers have maimed one another, each party sporting a marred eye worthy of a patch. Iron Mountains has also had its fair share of drama, Graham meeting an old lover unexpectedly, and becoming the acting King of the mountains while Pallas journeys to find inner peace after delivering the morbid news of the death of Daphne Varg and encountering a cub in a similar situation. That is not all! Mother Nature has also run amok, dispersing singing creatures of all sorts to all the prides; what cooky things does the Mother have planned for us? Stay tuned and you just might find out.

03/19/17 — Pallas has become the new King of Iron Mountains! Meanwhile, Ezekael has found himself quite verulent and has started the process of siring multiple litters! The Varg are making themselves known as the family continues to grow, and with Daphne being returned to them - what dangers await the rest of the valley? More and more lions have stepped into the valley, and things are heating up across the board.

03/03/17 — Things are heating up as more and more lions filter into the lands of Baraenor! Hrungnir and Samuel clash once again over rulership of Aellexus Steppe, with the younger of the two once more emerging victorious. Tensions have run high between Mirah Shores and Kyvar Morass as their kings nearly come to blows over members. Whales have washed up on the beaches, drawing many lions from the edges to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, Apollyon has moved the pride once known as Qirin Glade to the Emerald Vale, giving rise to a new pride The Iron Mountains.

Lioness
#1
Life was a beautiful and destructive mystery. It makes you believe that despite most of your developing had stayed the same, nothing was strong enough to take your world and throw it off its axis. You felt as if you were bulletproof, on top of everything. However, you soon realize that all it takes is something as small as a pebble to throw it all off balance and shatter life as you know it. One moment she was the warrior princess, the fierce heiress to the clan alongside her brother, and the next she was at the footsteps of foreign lands, running from her life, separated from all her family. She didn't even know if her father and uncle had survived the battle they charged into.


For most, the realization that one was alone, that their clan had been torn to pieces by vengeful prides and their people slaughtered, that the slim chance of seeing their family again, would most likely have lost to despair and mourn over the loss of their past life. However, this was not the case for this young lioness, who strolled into Baraenor with a pip in her step. Having already been introduced to many horrors in her life, not that any that afflicted her personally but horrors that she saw as an inactive bystander, due to having been presented with it at an early age. The death of dozens of lions, even if they were her own people, didn't phase her. And the thought of her father being slaughtered in battle did not cause a single tear to be shed from her eyes, for in her people's eyes, he died a martyr, a leader who died trying to save his own. Besides, how could she weep with despair when the opportunity of new experiences made her heart flutter in excitement?


From where she came from, all she heard when most described her, was an incarnation of a heavenly deity due to her unusual appearance, her mother was the one of the first who spread the rumor. If someone saw the lioness from afar, it wouldn't be farfetched to think the woman wasn't covered head to tail in some other poor fool's blood. However, when they got closer, perhaps those who were more squeamish towards gore would feel relieved to find the crimson markings that stained her head, legs and tail were merely markings. But upon closer inspection, they would notice the more prominent oddity on the woman's person; instead of rounded ears that usually rested on a lion's head, hers were instead pointed and had crimson tufts like a lynx. She had another surprise on her body, but she tended to only show it off during twilight hours. And her eyes, those eyes they were brighter color red than her markings that coated her body. They were striking and held a different meaning to those who dared to gaze into them. For some, they treated it as a clear omen to be wary of the lioness. For others, they regarded them as an alluring invitation that bid the beholder come closer.


Still possessing a poised gait she maintained despite losing her status as a princess the moment she fled from home, she was still a royal at heart and big on appearances, she stopped at the peak of the mountainous range and sniffed up at the slushy tops of the mountains. She looked down at the valley below her as the chilled winds blew behind her and huffed in dissatisfaction. This site wasn't really one to marvel, it was just a simple backdrop with short vegetation everywhere. The range was open and naked, giving any stealthy characters not as many options to cover themselves up. Despite not at all being impressed by the mountain range, she continued down to the river below, a source of water that allows her to rest and properly clean herself. It wasn't much, the water wasn't too plentiful, but she still used it anyway. She crouched down and lapped up the water before shoveling water into her paws and washing over her dust covered before climbing onto a nearby rock to sunbathe in order to dry herself and hopefully catch the attention of a lion she would hope to consider the first of many who will much needed entertained. So then, who the first jester to make it up on the stage?

He’d needed to see for himself, his vision stretched from all the way past Ironpaw crossing all the way to the sea at the opposite end of Baraenor. A disease, panic and lastly a potential sanctuary to be free of it? Still, he wouldn’t ask anyone to make that journey across the sea without proof, without good reason. It was a long swim, cubs would not likely make it on their own. Was he to abandon Valencia and Firenze? Firenze was weak, she wouldn’t make it to the first land bridge before drowning and he couldn’t carry her, not while swimming.

The King continued walking through the Crossing, ears forward and eyes idly searching for signs of diseased animals. Signs that the vision was true. Movement would halt the King in his tracks, alertness returning to his façade as he focused on the figure that moved off to his left. A lioness. Eyes watched with interest as the feline moved with a bounce to her step, seeming happy and eager to be free of whatever it was she left behind. The woman was elegant, graceful on her paws with the essence of freedom written in every ripple of her muscle, every step and breath she took. Sandor would chuff to the woman, intrigued. Perhaps she left behind a diseased world? Perhaps she hoped for more here?

Sandor moved forward, adjusting his path so that he would come closer, the black faced lion would nod to the woman, a generous dip of the head for a King before it would lift proudly above his shoulders, head tipped both to regard the woman as well as to protect his throat. “You seem quite eager to enter Baraenor…” He would comment with amusement dancing in his tones. Mismathed gaze would calmly regard the countenance of the lioness, holding her gaze if she were bold enough to do the same. “I’m Sandor, King of Eros Vihar. May I ask your name?” Head would tilt, a confidence in his voice that he typically did not have. There was no pressure here in the Crossing, she would join him or be on her way. It was much different when he had rogues at his border, a fine line between inviting in and protecting his family made things incredibly awkward for him.

Lioness

After a while of drying herself up, she got up and began her further descent into the unknown, still keeping up her happy and fresh persona. She mostly kept to her head, her mind replaying back to the scenes before. She remembers the sky, it was as red as drying blood as the lions, vengeance, and heartbreak clear in their eyes, rampaged through the clan. Didn’t matter if they were a cub. Didn’t matter if they were a weak elder. It didn’t matter if it was an expecting mother. They slaughtered indiscriminately because they had done the same to them.


She was broken out of her thoughts, however, to sound of a masculine chuff off to her side. Her lynx shaped ears twitched and turned towards its source. She hadn’t faced him, keeping up her nonchalant gait, not yet stopping to the presence beside her. She didn't fear strangers nor did she typically act wary around them either. She kept her relaxed mannerisms up, however, if he were to turn hostile, she wasn't squeamish over spilling blood in defense of herself.


She finally addresses him as he speaks first, commenting on her jovial attitude intermixed with her decorous gait, a habit that was cultivated during her days as a princess and has clung tightly to her since. She purrs serenely in response to his words, "Baraenor?" she parrots, "Is that what they call it?" she finally looks him over, her blood-red eyes locking in place as she gazed into his heterochromatic ones. Though his irises held in a calm ocean, hers was a wild sea swirling with playfully impish and curious intent.


She continued to watch him intently with carmine tinted eyes, she allowed him to make introductions. "King you say?" she says, her ears perked up with interest as she finally gave more than half her consideration. She finally changed her pace and direction, this time moving in a way that it circled around the male. Though her crimson eyes glowed with interest, she did not circle him in a malicious way as she still kept the same casual trot she had initially, as well as her ears still in a relaxed state, and her claws still sheathed in her paws. No, she only circled him merely to observe the male more closely. Though his method wasn't as thorough and personal as hers, he had perceived in the same way, right? So there would be no need to be fussy over simply inspecting physical appearances. And physical wise, he wasn't half bad, she internally admitted. She tended to make it a habit of judging other's forms and it seemed this one had impressed her enough to maintain her interest. After she was done evaluating the male, she finally stopped moving around and sat upright in front of the male, her neck having to crane up to look up at him. When he asked for her name in return, she chuffed mischievously before replying with a coy flick of her tail, "You may ask, but I typically only give out my name to lions I like. And I haven't decided if I like you yet." Of course, Hemera didn't say this to sound ill-disposed or turbulent, in fact, she was acting pretty friendly as she sat down to throw a small joke at the young male as she lightheartedly teased him with her unknown identity. Throughout the whole encounter, her eyes have been on him. She inquired internally. Would he play along?
