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.

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one.

Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded.

Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

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?

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.

IC Updates
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.

Now that the kids were six months old, you would’ve though they’d be less trouble. But as Eric took a walk away from Sant Hem and the chaos of being a family man...all he could think about how they were big enough to get stuck in places. Before, they were tiny, they could crawl everywhere. Crawl on everything, and everyone. Mostly him. But now, their butts wouldn’t fit through a log. And what happened if Juni got stuck, and Cory got stuck too at the same time. And. And-

STOP IT. Turn of the parent brain. Turn it off. Good.

Now just think of blood, chicks, and being cool.

Eric bites into his lip, a deep breath leaving his chest as the iron taste invades his mouth. Really. Come on. How many irrational ways for your kids to die are there? Plenty, I guess. Yeah, plenty. He bows his head, blowing up his cheeks. And so he continues walking, simply for the chance to clear his mind. Eric was a king, a father, a friend...kinda. But most of the time, he was just himself. A very, very special snowflake. You know, being a king isn’t chicks falling over you to be your queen. Being a father doesn’t mean you’re the kid’s role model, the one they most admire. And being a friend means you’re mostly third wheeling.

But being yourself, at least when it comes to Eric, it means you can do whatever the hell you want, make it look good, get a little slapped, but in the end you know they just can’t handle you. They’re Eric intolerant.   Sass sass sass.

The small lioness wound through the grasslands without any set destination in mind, cold air stinging her eyes and lungs, a certain amount of concentration darkening the already dark features of her face. Beetle was sort of hoping to find some small creatures worth hunting by her lonesome, but so far nothing was about in the clearing and she was just about to veer back for home - to the jungle, where at least among the trees she might have better luck.

That is, until she realized that she wasn't quite alone.

The male's fur did him a lot of favors out in the tall grasses, but his size negated that a little - especially since he didn't seem to be trying to blend in, marching along like his thoughts were elsewhere, and Beetle rarely came across a stranger.

"Hey, are you lost?" She piped up a few lengths to Eric's left, leaning into her haunches some so she could stretch her neck and see over the fronds and get a better look at him, ears standing high on top of her head.

The viking blinks and stops. Drawn out of his thoughts by a voice. He snorts, blowing out a piece of golden hair from his face and flashing her an I’m too cool to care grin. “No. Not lost. Just out on the town.” So...teeny. Really teeny. Was she really an adult?

Even so, the question of her size took a back seat at the question of her SCENT. Blond brows furrowed as he neared the woman. This was a scent he’d known before. It knotted his stomach, sent bile up his throat. It was bringing back some not too fond memory. Hmm. Eric smacked his lips together, narrowing his eyes at her.

Oh well. He got it.

“Now why would someone escaping the patriarchy have time to help out a good looking stranger?” Eric cocked a brow. “How’s Disa by the way? I’m sure virgin boy’s charms have won her over subtly enough.”

Sure. She probably wouldn’t get it. But hell, if she did. She deserved a fricken cookie. Sass sass sass.

Okay, so he wasn't actually lost, but he sure suddenly had some choice - and vague - words for her. Beetle was a bit taken aback by the male's sudden attitude, "Patriarchy? What're you talking about?" She took to staring at him like he had sprouted an extra head, her own subtly angled so she could have him centered within her right side's field of vision.

Whoever this was, he also knew Disa, and the more she listened the more she was able to gather that he'd probably crossed paths with Zayn or Solomon, and she straightened her posture, squinting her gaze and pursing her lips slightly as she put the stranger under harsher scrutiny.

"... Did something happen with you and one of my brothers?" Obviously, but she wanted to more information than just that.

“Well. Look at little Miss Smart.” Eric smirked, looking at the girl with honest to Odin amusement. “You should’ve been the head of the family.” A large paw rises to rub at his neck, as he looks away for a little. Where shall we start with this tale. Long or short? Thick or thin? Fairytale or goddamn news report. His tongue brushes over his lips, as his gaze finds its way back to her.

“I’m not sure if he’s your brother, but a certain king has been stealing women against their will. They did to Disa and they tried with Jorunn. Though I don’t know if Jorunn has an ass made out of gold or something cause she got a goddamn proposal anyway.” Eric cleared his throat. “Either way. If he wants a damn date, tell him to get some flowers, act nice. Try complimenting.” The blond shakes his head, chuckling. “Trust me. I’m sure some chicks dig the whole, I’m a bad boy with problems cause my parents left me vibe.” Well. Eric. I think they’re parents really DID leave, so you just hit a soft spot on a lady.

She didn't like his tone and it showed, her brows furrowing and her tail lashing in the air and against the tall grasses just behind her. Maybe for all intents and purposes, she was the head of the family, being the oldest sibling, but she wasn't interested in playing semantics - especially not when he was about to delve into what she really wanted to know.

"That... sounds like Zayn," She said mostly to herself, though he wasn't so far away that he wouldn't be able to hear her. Beetle had seen how quick the saber was to lay down claims and threats alike, so completely discrediting what this lion was saying wouldn't be doing her any favors. 

Yet she bristled at his assumptions all the same, because they didn't even scratch the surface.

"But he's just a child," Which didn't make it any more okay, but the small lioness was already acting in defense of her family, "Whose parents have been gone a long time. He doesn't know any better," She tilted her head expectantly, letting a pause hang in the air, "You're talking like you lost to him or something."

Shots fired.

Zayn, huh? Well the devil now has a name. We may now proceed to call large acts of douchebaggery as pulling a Zayn. Or getting friend-zoned can be shortened to getting Zayned.

If guys have small dicks, they have a Zayn dick.

Eric watches her. Perhaps far more interested in her reaction than the man who’s the supposed star. There’s so many walls around her, you have to wonder if she event has a door. Zayn took what he wanted. She repressed it.

Siblings, am I right?

“He’s big enough to know what’s right and what’s wrong. He just ACTS like a child.” And then she came around to giving explanations. Eric swallowed, shaking his head as his brows creased on his face. “We’re all fucked up in one way or another. We don’t get to go around with a crown on our heads and do what we want just because of that. Tell him to get the fuck over it.”

Oh. Oh. Going after him? Low blow baby, low blow. “Maybe I did. But that’s not what matters. What matters is that he’s taking women against their will, and I don’t give a fuck if they develop Stockholm syndrome, but you shouldn’t reward that crap.”

Duck and cover baby, duck and cover. Sass sass sass.

"I actually don't think he does," And why should he, when he never saw anything different? Nevermore made the mistake of telling them to do whatever they wanted. Yet she couldn't blame him either, a shell of himself in the wake of Shiba's death. If their mother had been here it would have been different. The small frown on her face upturned into an almost bitter smile.

"Do you think that'd go over well? You've met him, haven't you?" Sure she may be his sister, but that didn't change the fact that she hardly reached his elbow and right now he only understood physical altercations as a form of reasoning. But she really didn't have any objections to the blonde male's words - and her shoulders drooped with a small sigh, "What pride are you from?"

To be honest. It would’ve been easier if she were upset. Angry. That would make her from the same mold of her brother. Two demons happily dancing in a cage. While the vampire breathes airs of greatness. Eric swallowed at the damn thought.

Zayn hadn’t drank from innocent people. Zayn wasn’t...different. Except for the fucking teeth.

But she doesn’t put up a fight. Doesn’t tell him that HE is the child. That HE’s the one who’s wrong. And perhaps that would’ve been the truth. Inside him, there was always this deep crimson whole, sparking. Sparking ever so slightly. Digging deeper into his flesh. You can only smile through it for so long. Stop pretending that you’re not a duct-tapped man. “You’re his sister. Family. The only thing he can trust in the world right?” Eric cocked a brow. “Cause he so...messed up.” Single teal eye rolled in its socket. At least he had time to change, right? She should make an effort.

But then she goes with a question...a question that has nothing to do with anything! “Eric Björklund? King of Sant Hem? Baraenor’s hottest Bachelor?” A smirk is drawn on his face. “Doesn’t ring a bell?

Family - of course, but she didn't have the pull on Zayn that Solomon had as his equal... and Solomon was dealing with his own brand of demons. Sometimes it was all a little overwhelming for Beetle, but she continued to forge ahead - she had to, with four boys to protect.

"We'll get there," She assured the male with her chin raised again and her head angled off towards her left, the line of her lips thinning out a little at his comment about what she assumed to be the saber's psychological situation. "Doesn't make him messed up." Careful.

At least she'd get some kind of satisfaction from jabbing at his notoriety, or lack thereof, "Nope, never heard of you," Her tail waved in the air behind her and she rolled her small shoulders in a shrug, still keeping her gaze trained on him especially since he just revealed himself to be a king. "Are you on your way to wage war on Diello or something?" He wasn't exactly toting an entourage but that didn't mean he couldn't cause some trouble if that's what he intended.

“We’re all messed up.” He swallows, but says nothing more of it. For his demons were far more accessible than Zayn’s. They were right there...on the surface, lurking. Just waiting to be picked at. Eric wore his heart pinned on his chest with a goddamn sign that said BREAK ME. Pretty much. Vampire emotions and all that crap. Caring too much, doing too little. It all leads to losing everyone you ever cared about. Doesn’t it?

Eric smirked. “I guess you’re not exactly my demographic. Trust me. I’m a hit with older ladies. They just love the Swedish accent.” The man clicked his tongue, his mouth stretched into a grin as his chin tips up slightly. And then she asks another questions. Eric blinks at her. Lips parted as his brows furrow.

“I’m not your brother...Diello’s more than just a bad boy with an attitude. There’s women, cubs, people who don’t deserve to be put into the same category as him.” The viking king swallows. “I also have loved ones I need to protect, and none of them are ready for battle. So you tell Zayn if he has a bone to pick, to pick it with me and ME alone.”

Sass sass sass.

"That's a very negative outlook," Maybe he had some sort of hidden depths, fighting his own personal battles or whatnot, but being cynical didn't make you cool and he certainly wasn't about to get a free pass for completely lacking an eye - especially not from Beetle herself.

Her face fell a little, a tinge of exasperation in the way her eyebrows slightly pushed together in the center of her head, "Do you immediately accuse them of being prisoners in their own pride?" Because if he was going for good first impressions, that probably wasn't the way to go, regardless of how attractive he may be.

"Stop making Zayn out to be some kind of monster," Her hackles rose again, body tensing and gaze hardening on the only eye that Eric still had, "I don't know where Sant Hem is, but you're close enough to my home for me to assume, and you'd rather someone else deliver your message than you," And someone half his size, at that!

Eric snorted, rolling his eye, looking away to blow out a string of air. “Well, sorry I’m not miss suzy sunshine. Maybe if I was you’d like me more...” The viking stuck his tongue in his cheek, a gentle breeze blowing past his mane as he looked elsewhere. His chest heaving slightly. And then she speaks again. Angry, it seems. Protective. He meets her eyes, ears twitching. But he doesn’t speak for a minute. Just looks at her with his brows furrowed on his face.

She wasn’t the enemy. She was just prideful. Like everybody else. Scared to lose what was hers. Be it a brother or something else...

A sigh leaves his lips. “Maybe not all of them are. Hell, maybe Zayn is even nice to them on occasion. How could I know?” He looked at her face. Silent for a second.

Stop making Zayn out to be some kind of monster.

“Do you think what your brother is doing is right? If I were to take you, right here, right now, you wouldn’t like it. You'd call me a monster without any regrets. Wouldn’t you?”

Eric tilts his head, eye searching her face while a bitter smile crosses his lips. Making his eyes crinkle. “Guess I’m just lacking the bad boy charm.” And so he turns, having better things to do that just be stuck in a morality battle between him and a woman who’s name he didn’t even know. But of course, she had to speak again. Making him stop in his steps. Only to glance over his shoulder. “Why? Do you want to take me to your place and get to know me better?”

What in the world was a suzy sunshine? Other than be frustrating to talk to, Beetle was also fairly sure most of this guy's metaphors were sailing way over her head. "Maybe I would," There was a glint of challenge in her eyes, but she still hadn't let up on her posturing and her tail still waved behind her, curling to the left and right sides of her flank in a wide and fluid arch.

She didn't have anything to say about Zayn being nice because yeah, he was, in his own way - and that likely wouldn't be good enough for Sant Hem's king and she had enough bones to pick with him as it was.

"I never said that," Of course what Zayn was doing wasn't right in the fairest sense but Beetle had also learned to accept that sometimes, it was simply the way of things here. Her brother might be forcing women to stay in their pride but at least they weren't being mistreated. She hoped. Little victories. She certainly didn't appreciate his example though, lip pursed and the glare returning, "Are you threatening me?"

Bad boy charm. Right. She was about to call it good riddance when he turned away, fully intent on staying right where she was until she was sure he was going off in the direction away from the Lake, she met his backwards glance with the tips of her teeth in a mischievous grin to see him off.

"It sounds like you wouldn't have it in you. I'm Beetle, by the way. Beetle Halfsbane," And he'd best remember that!

“Damn it.” He chuckled, flashing her a grin. “Now I have to actually be nice to you.” Eric bit his lip, rolling his eye. Being nice to people wasn’t his forte. Hell, he thought he was being nice, but he was apparently just being creepy. Maybe it was the eye? People don’t like staring into a wonderful...open socket.

Even if he lost that eye for love?

Brows furrowed slightly as the woman didn’t take too kindly to his words. Eric shook his head. “Maybe you want it...you know?” He stepped forward, cocking his head. “The danger...the thrill.” The viking king waggled his brows as he took another step closer to her, and closer and closer unless she’d move away. “Sorry. I’m not that guy. I’m just good old safe and boring.” Except for the part that right now I want to suck your blood out so bad and you don't even know it. A chuckle leaves his smirk, as he bows his head slightly to look at his feet. A strand of blond hair getting in his eyes.

Then he looks at her again, once her quick tongue is lashing once more. A snort leaves him. “Well now, look who’s taunting. It’s almost like you want it. Isn’t that right, BEETLE.”

He acted like being nice was on the list of worst things that could happen, which was surprising for someone so insistent that he was a lion of way better morals than Zayn. Which he might still be, but that wasn't the point here. 

Rather than continue on his way, though, he turned back around, smoothly closing the distance between them to the point where Beetle almost took a small step back. Almost. Something in her insisted that she really didn't want to give him the satisfaction of encroaching so easily on her personal space. Instead she tried to subtly shift so she was head-on with him, her own half-blind gaze trained on his nearly-matching one.

"You sure like to assume things," Her expression darkened a little and her voice lowered, and maybe that'd be more dangerous if she wasn't so small, but Beetle never let something like that stop her before so why should she start now? Her limbs tensed as he lowered his head, weight leaning gradually back into her haunches, and when he lifted his eyes to her again and snorted, putting more words in her mouth, she decided he wouldn't need a whole lot of warning after all.

On the last beat of her name from his lips she'd decided she'd had enough, jaws dropping open instinctively to defend her throat as a snarl escaped and she attempted to lurch her upper half forward, both forelimbs reaching out simultaneously as she pushed off enough with her hind legs to add length and momentum with her tail rigid behind her as a counterweight. 

The toes of each forepaw fanned out to cover the most surface area, claws unsheathed as the right one tried to swipe at the left side of Eric's face towards her own left at a slight downward angle, attempting to lacerate the skin just above his eyebrow and down across the bridge of his nose. Her left front paw came upward with the pad turned towards her own right, inadvertently trying to hook a few claws into his lower right cheek - she couldn't exactly see what she was doing on that side of her body but she could feel and if she was going to be braced on her hind limbs she wanted a way of knowing (somewhat) how he was moving.

Her ears laid flat, neck and shoulders scrunched and squared for protection, one eye with a wild light and her whiskers flared to aid in her perception. Her hind legs were kept bent and equidistant, toes splayed and claws digging into the earth for extra traction and stability - definitely needed given her current stance.

Maybe he'd learn it wasn't just Zayn he needed to watch for!

“I’m not assuming anything, sweetheart. I’m just...” Eric trailed off. Chuckling. “Reading your body language.” Oh God, it was too funny. That’s a good line guys, someone write down. Write it down. Guys? You wrote it. Good! Onward to the ass kicking.

And body language she had, enough to give him some sort of look into her pretty little head. Kitty was MAD. Write this down Eric. Don’t insult people’s siblings. Just don’t. It’s bad.

As Beetle upper half move forward, Eric instinctively pulled back, weight falling on his haunches as his head jerked back. Chin pulling up at a small 20º angle as his skull turned to the right at a 30º angle. The woman’s right claws hit just beside the inner corner of his left eye socket, raking down the bridge of his nose, on its left face. Only to end at left corner of the flesh part of his nose. The moderate lacerations left behind extended from beside the left eye inner corner to the end of his nose on the left side.

Next up to the beat down. Little old miss LEFT PAW. Ah, this is great. I’m so amused. His right front paw lifts, attempting to counter and cup and grasp Beetle’s left paw beneath her wrist, trying to sink his claws into her flesh and push it away. Yet her fabulous salon claws still managed to make four slight punctures a couple inches above the right side of his jawbone, yet closer to his chin as his head was turned rightwards.

Shit Beetle. That the pretty side of his face!

His first reaction was to lean backwards - and that was what she wanted - but she wouldn’t have resorted to using her claws if some extra space was all she was after. At least she’d gotten hold of his face in some capacity; she could feel the claws of her right forepaw drag through the flesh along the left side, but the force of his right forepaw pushing her left forelimb away pulled her upper half towards her own left - and she went with it, receiving moderate lacerations at an angle along the underside of her left foreleg, beginning at the wrist and following the curvature to about the middle of the lower limb, where they lessened slightly in depth from the way she rotated it to put it back on the ground, to reinstate her balance and shift her hips just enough towards her own right to put herself at a slight angle with him (such that the center of the right side of her chest would line up with the center of the left side of his chest).

Simultaneously with the way she leaned, she attempted to follow the path of Eric’s suspended right foreleg with her open jaws, relying primarily on her whiskers to pinpoint as she turned her head slightly towards her own left and tilted the top of her skull a little in the same direction, trying to catch enough of her teeth at an angle somewhere along his lower right forelimb - nearer to the wrist - to puncture and grip the flesh for some measure of control. Meanwhile, her right forepaw also continued its trajectory towards her left, and she tried to stick the claws into the inside of his right foreleg around the elbow joint with toes splayed for maximum purchase and rake towards herself in an effort to slice through the softer flesh.

She could feel the sting of her wounds and the way the blood began to well hot against her fur and skin, but for now it sparked something within her - and she still instinctively tried to protect herself, eyes narrowed and ears flat against her skull, the flesh of her neck bunched mainly along her left side and right shoulder rolled forward with her reach to help guard the other. She kept her balance strewn mainly across the left portion of her body, three limbs slightly bent and equidistant, toes splayed and claws unsheathed to dig into the earth for added traction. Her tail was held low to continue acting as a counterbalance, rigid in her wake.

Right front paw catches, making contact. But Eric has little time to stop and smell the flowers before Beetle puts her foot down, literally. The man doesn’t hold on as she places her left forepaw back on the ground, instead he hopes to land on his right front paw as well. But fate is not such a sweet mistress, is it? For Beetle’s open jaws come to wrap around his right limb, and in the momentum of putting it down he is unable to stop its journey. A grimace paints his lips as her teeth grasp his flesh at an angle, a couple inches above where the paw meets the leg. Eric receives three moderate puncture wounds with a slight diagonal tear due to the moment of trying to put his paw down. 

Now with his paw in her mouth, the poor guy’s a little busy. But that’s not the end of it. Oh no sit. She wants to keep going. Trust me. She’s really into it. Her pesky little right claws find their way to a little bit above the elbow joint of his right foreleg. That poor foreleg can’t catch a  break. Eric swallows at the smell of blood, be it his or hers, he couldn’t tell. What a shitty vampire, huh? Those pretty right claws of hers left moderate lacerations extending from a bit above the elbow joint to halfway down the lower half of his foreleg. Since Eric couldn’t exactly move it away because a) he loves pain and b) because she had his damn foot in her mouth and that would just cause more tearing. So what do you do? You have to make them let go. It’s like, going through a break up.

Since Beetle was in protection mode, it wasn’t going to be easy to find some soft sensitive spot. But finding girl’s spots was Eric’s specialty. The viking presses his weight on his left leg to keep from toppling over as he moves his weight from his back legs towards the front, in an attempt to bow his head and snap his jaws at her face while she is busy holding onto his arm. Due to their angled positioning, he couldn’t aim at a frontal angle, instead his head turns at a small 20º to the left, his jaws aim to close on the left side of the top of her nose bridge, between the eyes.

Now let go!

Sass sass sass.

The way her teeth sank into Eric’s wrist was satisfying, but the flickering kind of satisfaction that you don’t really have time to think about - not when a set of jaws much larger than yours is trying to close around your face.

Luckily she could see him on that side, and his breath was damp on her whiskers, the suddenness of the proximity more than enough to spark a reaction. He wanted her to let go and she did, jaws dropping open further to release her hold on his limb as she attempted to reel both her head back and her weight back into her haunches simultaneously, but she wasn’t that quick; Eric’s top-left canine punctured enough into the skin of the top of her left cheek bone to leave a deep laceration as she moved, and his lower set of teeth nicked the flesh in the center of her right cheek as his jaws were closing, causing a moderate cut. 

A growl rose rough from her chest as she was withdrawing - the blood running down her face leaving a darker sheen to her black fur. She already had her right forepaw suspended (and was forced to dislodge the claws from Eric’s right foreleg when she jerked back) so she attempted to bring it up a bit more and shove it directly into Eric’s lower left cheek in an effort to both pierce the claws through the flesh and put as much distance as possible between herself and his fangs. 

Beetle was getting tired, but had a point to prove and really didn’t want to lax her defenses; her weight was back to being primarily across her bent hind limbs, left front paw having been pulled back towards herself and barely touching the ground with the toes, primed to either move for balance or be lifted in offense. 

Her tail stayed rigid, laying partly against the earth, hind paws splaying their toes and keeping the claws out for traction. She kept her jaws slackened over her throat, chin tucked, ears flat and unmoving from the slope of her head. The reach of her right forepaw kept the corresponding shoulder squared against the side of her neck and her left shoulder rolled forward a little too, due primarily to the instinct to protect herself.
