OOC Updates
7/10/18 — Our summer [mini-update] is now live! We've made some more tweaks to our PVP system as well as some extra encouragement for our players to make use of the Coliseum when writing their fight posts. A related guide is also in the works, so keep an eye out for that to be finished soon! The WIP can be found at the top of the Coliseum forum.

6/2/2018 — Maintenance has been concluded! Hooray! We have new skins and some wall-o-text update for you guys to read. So please make sure you are reading through the summer update.

5/6/2018 — We have wrapped up the Blessings of Twilight event and will have the end results up soon once everyone's points are tallied. Elle has also provided us with a couple of new affiliate buttons to use, so big thank you to her for her help!

4/10/2018 — [Character Appreciation Auditions] are open for a few more days! Now's the time to bring in an already established character into a brand new world, even if they aren't originally a lion. The second [Blessings of Twilight] event is also underway, so be sure to track your characters' progress and earn those cool prizes!

4/01/2018 — Hmm... Something is just [not quite right] around this place and you guys are writing some really weird stuff.

3/21/2018 — Our long-awaited [Spring Update] has officially dropped! Along with a few clarifications and an overhaul of the task system, we have given the guidebook a complete overhaul as well for easier navigation and understanding. New and returning players are encouraged to give everything a read-over, and as always, staff is happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have!

2/4/2018 — Year 4 is underway, as well as Baraenor's First Anniversary! We have a very special Character Appreciation this time around that lasts all through the month of February, and we need some help compliling pivotal threads for our Year 3 Synopsis.

1/20/18 — It's Winter of Year 3, and that means that the IC year is coming to a close! Expect Hall of Fame nominations to open soon, and be sure to read up on all of the user polls we're using to help continue to fine-tune the task system. We are always looking for more imput and suggestions from our playerbase!

12/28/17 — Baraenor enters Autumn of Year 3, and the next phase of the White Stag Event has begun! Be sure to sign up for a belated Christmas Gift, as well as enroll in Scribble Wars for next month for a chance to win some gems!

12/1/17 — Summer of Year 3 has steam-rolled its way into existence. As always, contests are being held, links to which can be found riiiiight below these updates. Christmas is almost upon us in the real world (and by almost I mean almost a month from now) so be prepared because it is the season for gifting. Creatures have also been allowed onto the site for a price unless you bring them during Character Appreciation Week, so feel free to ask for details if you need more information.

11/4-17 — Another month gone and Baraenor enters into Spring of Year three! We have a lot of contests coming up so keep an eye out for those - and don't forget that Christmas is just around the corner! Who knows what suprises will be in store for the players of Baraenor! Also look to see the ending of the BWP for our resident Witch Doctor - he's going to be picking up steam.

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. Since nobody knew ahead of time, one OOC week will be given to find a home before December health deductions will be made by staff.

9/13/17 — The brand-new PvP system has been officially announced, and is now in effect across Baraenor. Please see this update for more information! With this, we've also created a new forum called The Coliseum so players can practice writing fight posts without putting their characters in jeopardy.

9/2/17 — The Sept/Oct 'Spooky' Board Wide Event has officially been released, opening up a new forum for posting! For full detailed information on what the event involves, check out both threads in this forum.

8/31/17 — Happy (very belated) six months to Baraenor! We've added a few neat things to both IC and OOC profiles, which can be found in this update. Sign-ups for Scribble Wars, our first-ever posting contest, are also open until September 3rd! Players may enter with as many characters as they want, so don't forget to register for the chance at some very nice rewards!

8/20/17 — An official site update has been posted here. Some new changes have been made in regards to The Giving Tree, Gem Shops and Tasks so be sure to look it over. We've also introduced Character Appreciation Week and Of the Month Nominations so be looking for those in the future!

8/7/17 — An update has been posted here. If everyone could take the time to read over and input any ideas or opinions it would be greatly appreciated! 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. Cootie will still try to pop in on Discord and the cbox to check on everyone, but otherwise expect kind of a lull while everyone's out traveling before school starts back for a lot of players. Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

7/24/17 — We are still accepting entires for our Flora and Fauna contest! This is a neat opportunity to contribute directly to the world of Baraenor, and earn something for your efforts! We've seen several new faces around lately, so thank you to everyone that's been posting our advertisments. Keep it up so we can bring even more new players into our community!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal. Congratulations to everyone who won in the OOC or IC contest. =) In other news, Tabs has opted to take a break from Adminship for a little while and relax so if you have any questions feel free to inquire with Jolee or any of the other staff members as well as posting inquiries in the Soundboard forum for questions and suggestions. We will be attempting to go through the site soon and seeing if anything could be improved upon so input is always appreciated.

6/27/17 — The Starfall Contest is quickly drawing to a close, but there's still time to participate and nifty prizes to be won! The guidebook has been updated with all of the newest changes, as well as a few tweaks for clarity after feedback from the playerbase and other observations. You can read more about those here!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway! We're still working out some kinks and making new gameplay additions, the latest of which can be read about in this update. Staff auditions have also opened up, and interested parties can have a look here at the open positions and how to apply!

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? With the addition of Woman Empowerment ladies of Baraenor have just a little more umph.. But they still have to work for it! Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

04/24/17 — There have been several updates made recently, highlighting tweaks in the fighting system, a task overhaul, gridlines on the map and much more! Check them out here and here for more information. We also have a shiny new Game Development board, where we'll be discussing anything new and exciting with everyone!

03/19/17 — As we move into our third month of being open, we see some accounts going inactive. Make sure that you guys are posting at least once a month to keep characters from falling inactive! And remember, if a character under 1 year goes inactive they will be considered deceased. Keep up the posts, guys!

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.

02/07/17 — We have a couple of contests going on right now, Advertising contest which has a few of our breed only (And non purchaseable) pelt colors as prizes. Skinning contest with Gems as prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for a Valentines day Scavenger hunt as well! In the meantime, we'd like to give a HUGE thank you to both Pessy and Vix for donating towards making Baraenor! And to the players who have joined up in the last few days. Without the players, there would be no site. They have our love!

02/05/17 — Baraenor is now officially open! Players may begin to start creating OOC and IC accounts. Thank you to everyone that has helped us get to this point in time.

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

Water levels are slowly starting to recede as the days grow hotter, and the humidity means that the chance of thunderstorms happening is on the rise. Roaming around in the middle of the day will be uncomfortable for most animals, but it isn't a health risk just yet.

and the life you were promised never came, and your dreams are just as they seem

It was as daunting as it was frightening. Erevu had expressed his desire to come along with her, but Adélaide had willed the man to stay behind. She did not want to come with an entourage, and feared that by bringing a King from another pride with her, she would be sending a message she did not want to (and another part of her, perhaps deep down, did not want Solomon to see her with another man, what a silly thought). Thus, the young Queen ventured through the familiar Jungle alone, and was careful not to keep herself hidden, but likewise not draw attention to herself. It was much harder walking here now that she carried the scent of saltwater, but still yet within the traces of her pelt lingered the smell of Diello, despite the fact she had always clung to the outskirts, and spent most of her time outside of the pride. She owed it them, she considered, she owed it to him. Her appearances and demeanor had been cryptic and mysterious at best. No more secrets.

Jendayi was alive. Perhaps that's why she was here.

She reached the borders before she knew it, and as soon as the sharp scent of male unfurled in her nose she stopped, one paw halfway over the carefully-marked territory. Steeled gaze lingered for a moment, half-debating turning around (she could not imagine any disappointment or anger she may get, and it frightened her); and yet, Adélaide was not often easily frightened away. She had already fought with the urge to remain secret the few nights she had spent on the coastline, and had long resolved that this was the right thing to do. Most of all, she knew, she could not lose him. He had become far too precious to her to anger him, to disappoint him as she had done her father, her brothers, her aunt. Eventually, after long drawn-out moments of tense silence, Adélaide let out a soft and beckoning chuff; she was nondiscriminate, and while she called for Solomon she likewise called for anyone who could talk, who could relay a message if the King was unavailable. Part of her desperately wanted to see the starglow king make his way through the thickets and trees, but another part of her dreaded it.

The call was something he heard as he was returning to the territory, and the saber growled softly to announce his presence. Amethyst gaze looked at the woman before he grunted, drawing ahead of her - jaws parting to scent her as he moved past and then to stand across the borders - looking at the lady. He remained silent for a short moment - Taera screeching as she flew in, flaring her wings and alighting upon the sabers broad shoulders. "Is there something I can help you with?"

He supposed she'd been calling for his Brother or Luka... but the saber figured he could help her at least until the others arrived. Ears tipped forward, and he waited, watching the female to decide if his question was worth answering. Of course - he wasn't aware of her connection with his younger brother.

He remembered her as the woman unconscious on the outskirts, but she was calling all the same for the Lake's leadership - Brutus veered off to respond in kind, moving to Zayn's side as the larger male spoke. "Solomon will be here shortly," The heir spoke evenly as he regarded the lioness, taking note of the saltwater scent that seemed to linger on her pelt. There was an undertone of familiar jungle... but clearly, she had arrived here from elsewhere and had been gone for at least an extended period of time.

So, then, what was this about?

He’d been mentally preparing himself to attempt going to another pride in search of Jendayi when he heard the call ring out. Steps had paused as behemoth frame fell still among the jungle foliage. Iwaya had to turn around from her current path and come to land upon Solomon’s shoulder as they shared in their confusion. Adelaide was calling out for him and he was quick to shift directions and respond. What he wasn’t prepared for is finding her at the borders refusing to step in to the boundaries as though she no longer belonged.

Solomon was not the first to arrive as Zayn and Brutus beat him on to the scene. Iwaya shifted restlessly upon Solomon’s back before taking flight to the nearest tree to get a better view of the situation. Wings unfurled as she stretched before lying them flat upon her back; golden eyes ever watchful as head swiveled upon her neck. Icy gaze flicked to Brutus and then to Zayn before turning full attention to Adelaide, confusion evident upon his normally stoic façade.

"What is it?" Ever the obvious inquiry to come forth on baritone chords before following up with, "Did you find her?" But even if she had, she would have come to him within Diello to tell him of her whereabouts. Right? The only reason to be at the and not come in…no. Surely not? She said she wasn’t going anywhere before. Perhaps he was jumping to conclusions. So he would wait for her to speak before going down a path that was a misunderstanding.

and the life you were promised never came, and your dreams are just as they seem

Solomon was not the first to arrive, and for that she was almost thankful. Instead, a man who looked just like him approached through the underbrush, but it was soon clearly evident he was different. Large fangs poked out from between his blackened lips, and his size was monstrous, just like Solomon's. Her paws shifted a bit, but Adélaide showed no other signs of her growing nervousness. Is there something I can help you with? he asked, and right as Adélaide opened her mouth to speak, Brutus suddenly appeared. Once more, out of the corner of her eyes, the young maiden had almost mistaken him for Solomon. It was the brisk lightness in his mane, however, that quick quelled the churning in her stomach. Solomon will be here shortly, he said, and she could not help but feel the mixture of dread and excitement that dwelled within her fast-beating heart. She yearned for him, but she was likewise fearful of what he might do, or say.

But she had long come to her decision. She had given him her word.

Eventually, the King himself showed up, and it was a struggle for Adélaide to not move out and attempt to embrace him. All the information that now weighed on her shoulders was heavy, and she wanted nothing more than, even if so very briefly, to not have to carry it. What is it? he asked, did you find her? “She is alive,” she said, knowing there was no yes or no to his question, given her current situation. She knew Brutus would know of the situation (for he had been one of the first to find her, weeping and wailing on the mountainside about her daughter), but she didn't anticipate the third brother knowing, unless Solomon had told him. Nevertheless, Adélaide felt too overwhelmed to explain. “I felt like…I felt like I saw her, for real this time. She lead me to the coast, where I saw another King, Erevu. It must have been the Gods' will. He had seen my daughter that day on the mountainside, but he said another man and his wife had taken her. I don't know if he's a rogue, or if he's the King of a pride. I just know she's alive, and that she's out there.” The news had been both an exciting and haunting revelation. There was the knowledge that Jendayi was still alive that quelled any doubts and wistless hopes, but now Adélaide had to think yet still for her daughter's safety in these stranger's paws.

“I…” she began again, and nervous bloomed, “in my hysterics I claimed the beach. I thought that, if this man who took her were powerful or a friend or an ally, I did not want to pull you into this. I would use my own name, my own resources, and so nobody could trace Diello's name back to this. I don't know if that was the right decision of me to make, I'm not...I've never lived in a pride before this.”Solomon had already made it abundantly clear that he did not mind her using Diello's resources, but Adélaide knew when it came to pride relations and the protection of their pride members, it was a different story. Her gaze focused then on Brutus and Zayn, hoping even their influence may see reason in her own logic. They did not care for her like Solomon did, she thought, and wondered perhaps their reaction may be more raw, more adverse. “I told you I wasn't leaving, Solomon,” she returned her soft, blue-gray gaze back to him, and inhaled, “so I want it to be your decision. I can continue my efforts to look for Jendayi without you risking Diello to do it, and I can return home once she is located…or I can dissolve this silly makeshift pride and return to you immediately. But now that I know she's out there, I need to find her.” It was a conclusion she had reached, and perhaps wouldn't have if she weren't so fond of him. She had told him she wasn't leaving, however, but likewise hadn't anticipated this sort of day to come. It seemed the best option to let him decide, so that both of them were happy.

Solomon arrived, and is his arrival opened the flood gates, the pale woman poured her words upon the ground before the brothers. His gaze turned between Solomon and the pale woman when she mentioned that she wasn't leaving - and he grunted, a smirk touching the sides of his lips. "Have you crouched on her yet?" The saber questioned - his tones light, but surely, his brother would know the meaning of those words. He after all, had been stunted for some time by a dog.

The flash of anger he felt at that memory faded however, when he shifted, turning his attention to the female in question. She had.. taken a pride? A brow arched over his expressive features before the male grunted, his expression turning slightly sour. They'd already lost Beetle to her own pride - and Skol to his. What was it about Diello that had them fleeing in droves to claim their own places on Baraenor? However... He said nothing - the eagle perched upon his shoulder grinding her beak together as she echoed his sentiment. If she was a leader - she was one of two leaders. An ally, or an Enemy. And with Diello on the cusp of revolution, enemy was no place she would wish to be.

He would glance to his brother - as she had ties to the male .. And let Solomon take charge of this little.. meeting and lead them onward. His decisions would seal the fate of the pale woman, and for that Zayn waited almost impatiently.

The cub was still alive…another king by the name of Erevu told her she was taken in by a lion and lioness of that he didn’t know their names. That would make things difficult, but not impossible if she was still within Baraenor. This Erevu he wasn’t familiar with, however, and whether or not he’d be honest or play on a mother’s emotions to offer hope when there was none. She’d not seen Jendayi with her own eyes, only had another’s words to go off of. She found him on the coast somewhere though. Perhaps a visit to this king would be in order so he could judge for himself.

What he doesn’t expect was her next comment…she’d claimed a territory of her own. She claimed to have done it in a moment of hysterics, but doubt began to creep up in the back of his mind as always. It never truly went away no matter how much faith he tried to put in to another. Her rational was that she didn’t want to involve Diello if she had to go after someone. But she should know that he already promised to help her find Jendayi. A promise from Solomon was unbreakable. He’d follow through until the very end no matter the cost. He’d done so time and time again, but it seemed others still doubted him and he continued to prove them wrong. Jorunn had been promised death and she would have received it if not for the mercy of Zayn. How the tides had turned in that situation. But for some reason she’d been given another chance. Now promises were being made to Komox and to Skol as trouble kept coming from both angles. It seemed that now he just had a third to figure out how to deal with.

Even as he thought she spoke further saying she wasn’t leaving. But she did. The demon on his shoulder spoke, though she continued onward by saying she would leave it all and come back to Diello if she wanted him to. Selfishness crept forth, wanting to demand that she come home now, but another part remembered how Hillevi spoke of feeling chained without freedom. To be forced to be somewhere or told what to do. Anger blossomed in the back of his mind, yet he remained stoic on the exterior as frustrations mounted as a battle played out between logic and desires. He knew what he wanted, but was it the right thing?

And then even as the tension in the moment mounted, Zayn was quick to break that situation and force his thoughts to shift as he asked about if he’d crouched on Adelaide yet. A glance was given to his sibling in confusion and frustration that stemmed from embarrassment. He rumbled a low growl to Zayn before his attention shifted back to Adelaide. Now that particular embarrassment was out on the table…he tried his best to ignore it and deal with the real situation at paw. He stares at her a moment long as the battle continued in his mind. Tell her to come home. The darkness spoke. Or rip her apart. For saying one thing and doing another. But how could he truly know what drove her to leave. He couldn’t relate…he wasn’t a parent.

"You do what you think is best." He rumbled in distant tones. "If I tell you to come home, then I lied to you that you can come and go as you wish. But I promised to help you find Jendayi and I will do so no matter where you are. I don't break my promises." After that…they’d have to see where they went from there or how she reacted to his response to the matter. He couldn’t be selfish as much as the darkness wished him to be…and if he let the darkness win and he lashed out then he could be murdering someone’s mother just like the brute that had murdered theirs…He was caught between a rock and a hard place for what he wanted to do and what he knew he had to do. Whatever she chose, he'd have to live with her decision and the ones he'd made himself. All or nothing.

and the life you were promised never came, and your dreams are just as they seem

Have you crouched on her yet? A curious and bewildered glance was given in Zayn's direction. The man had appeared gruff untalkative, but she had not anticipated that sort of response. Adélaide wasn't entirely sure what to make of it, and decided instead perhaps it were something playful, rather than its intended meaning. Either way, it seemed inappropriate, but where Solomon seemed flustered Adélaide struggle to stifle a small laugh, and instead allowed it to exhale as a smooth drawl. There was a seriousness behind Zayn's tone that told her had hadn't intended it as a mood-lightening joke at all. Even then, the new Queen was unsure anything could shake the foundation of this tension. After her breathy explanation, a haunting silence fell on the group.

She studies desperately Solomon's reactions, each twist of emotion on his face that dare might leak out through his practiced stoicism. Adélaide would have cursed him for being so reclusive if she wasn't the same way herself. Instead, Adélaide gave the rare opposite, allowing worry to flutter across her crinkled brows, her quivering lip; her claws grasped at the ground, sheathing and unsheathing again and again until the ground tore up underneath her paws. Time seemed to drag on endlessly, until eventually he spoke. You do what you think is best, he said, and Adélaide could not quell the fur that raised around her neck. Her ears flicked back until they pinned against her head, and her tail gave one large lash to the side, churning the dead leaves and gnarled roots underpaw. She opened her mouth to interject, but her voice was not powerful enough to stop him.

“This isn't about what I want anymore, Solomon,” she said, and her tone was surprisingly firm. She sounded more like a mother lecturing her child, and yet, there was a lingering tenderness in her voice, as if her words were nothing more than stubborn love. "This is about Jendayi and you,” she began again, before the silence settled too long, “about what you want. I want you, Solomon, and I want whatever makes this easier on you.” She did not know about their troubles with K'omox or Aerodeck, she did not know the turmoil stirring within Diello, but she would be a fool to not see the tension and tiredness riddled on all their faces. All she had wanted was to not contribute to their growing mess (and admittedly, make up for the desperation of a mother who's gotten a lead).

She had promised all of herself to Solomon, and it was a choice she had made. The King could choose to be selfish or not; Adélaide was already fettered to her feelings. “If you want me to come home, I'll come home—because I want to. I am yours, remember?” And it was my choice to be. His brothers had not out-cried their opposition to her plight, and Adélaide had long accepted to give into their help if her burdens were something they were willing to bare. She had realized, perhaps, that if their positions were switched, she would have done the exact same thing for Solomon. She spared a glance briefly toward his brothers, before reaching a paw outwards, attempting to lay it softly on top of his own.

The tension was palpable, and the small heir stood silent in the massive shadows of his siblings, listening as Adélaide explained herself - her daughter was alive, and she had claimed a pride on a whim as a means of bettering her chances of finding her. Clearly, she and Solomon had some sort of connection outside of that. I am yours, remember? Brutus's whiskers twitched, his ears angled first back towards the king and then forward towards the petite lioness before them, seeking forgiveness, permission, or something else entirely. Nevermind what Zayn had said, because Brutus had no idea what the saber was talking about anyway.

"She's a mother looking for her child. That's not betrayal."

He mused, his voice low in his throat, and he let the words fade before he looked over his shoulder at Solomon, his tail coiling warily against one of his ankles. "If this is what she must do, we can stand behind her, can we not?" Tearing the woman from her newly found throne simply because she presented the option seemed... unfair, somehow. He didn't want to involve himself directly in his brother's relationships, but something within him wanted to speak, and he let it.

Zayn remained silent as Adelaide continued, her posture shifting and tail lashing. Ears had pinned which caused his own to flatten in to his mane. The darkness threatened, but he was able to quell the wrinkle of nose to bare fangs before it could occur. It was an instinctive reaction when it seemed others may bear aggression towards him as she had almost done; the tone in her voice not helping as he felt almost lectured. She said it wasn’t about what she wanted, but it always had been. It had always been about making her happy and finding her daughter; to bring back together a broken family where he couldn’t do the same with his own. At least she had a chance. His mother was dead and never come back.

"Then why did you leave." He finally blurted out as his tone shifted with mild anger, stoicism faltering as icy gaze fixated on the lioness after she spoke of not wanting to leave him and that she wanted to come home for him. Sure she said she had claimed land without thinking, but there had to have been motivation behind it. To claim another land…to leave Diello. To leave him. After all he had done…after all he had felt. It felt like the first time all over again. The first to rip out his heart and stomp on it. But he wasn’t sure if this was worse since it just felt like she was playing with his feelings. To leave. To come back. To leave again? He didn’t know.

Her emotions had always given him whiplash to the point he wasn’t sure which end was up. And maybe that was what love was like, but he didn’t know or understand the word fully. She spoke of their promise. I am yours and you are mine. Yet she still chose to claim a new home which was where his frustrations and confusion lie in the matter. Solomon had always been straight forward. Games confused him. Emotions confused him even more and at times he wish he didn’t have them. Even now they were rampant as blood boiled; hurt, pain, confusion and desire. He wanted her to come home, but he had also promised to let her fly if needed.

Brutus interjection caused him to break free from the growing darkness as the whispers spoke to him upon his shoulder. Icy gaze shifted as ear swiveled to listen to his sibling. She hadn’t betrayed them. No. Not betrayal. Only heartache. "I told her before I would help her find Jendayi." He rumbled in deep baritone chords, tail lashing behind him idly. "And I will help her in the task regardless of where she lives." After that, however, that would be a different matter depending on how this encounter ended. He wouldn’t force her to come home and he tell her to keep her pride. That was her decision to make.

Zayn looked silently at his younger sibling, watching Solomon for the telltale signs of anger. When he saw the well known markers- the saber grunted and moved up to nudge his shoulder against his brothers with a low growl. "Then.. We help find the kid." And deal with things after that.. But he didn't understand why the woman was speaking in her contradictions. He turned his gaze to the woman, amethyst eyes hardening for what she was doing to his brother. "If you're 'his' and you don't live here, then you aren't 'his'." It was truth, right? His stuff lived with him - Luka, Hestia.. They lived in Diello and they were his. Along with many of the lionesses in the pride. This pale female was claiming to belong to Solomon, yet refused to live here... Which made her not Solomons.

and the life you were promised never came, and your dreams are just as they seem

At first, and with bated breath, Adélaide saw Brutus speak and it filled her fluttering heart with some semblance of hope. What fickle emotions lingered about her and Solomon reached a more communicable sense with the other brother; he could find a detached and unbiased conclusion where her own feelings may muddle with those of Solomon’s. But even so, it did nothing else to quell the fear and concern that swirled within the young Queen, and the feeling of a throne in of itself felt unjustified and strangely empty. She felt as if she had spoken the world and more; her throat was dry, she had nothing left to say. Her eyes fell desperately upon Solomon, and perhaps it was something stirring deep within her that almost compelled tears to prick the corners of her eyes. Damnit, she thought bitterly, it’s always like this. Everything felt heavy, everything felt weak. It was a sort of dejection to herself. When he spoke of her, and not at her, Adélaide could feel her own heart shatter in her chest. Her lips curved into a trembling frown, and she finally broke her glance to stare down at her paws. Zayn’s words, likewise, were yet another whiplash and heartache.

“B-Bakacho…,” she breathed silently, letting the silence between them linger longer than she may have wanted. What little bout of Queenliness suddenly fell away, and once more was the young maiden draped in her sadness and regret. She was stripped, raw; she felt fettered, as if hands were wrapped around her throat and were squeezing, preventing her from talking, from breathing. Like a worn and weathered cloth, she abandoned her Empress’ dress, and stepped silently passed the Diello borders. There was something about her, defeated, and yet in a sense of guilt, rather than disappointment. It had been a mistake. It had all been a mistake.

If Solomon would allow, she would have headed straight for him; pressed her head into the thick of his mane, and begged for his forgiveness. Grief ruined me. I almost let it ruin us.

I want to come home.


Eeep so with some personal lifestyle changes happening I figured it was only fair I allow more active peeps to take up a pride slot. This way I can focus more on Addy's personal development without having to worry about a pride. ♥

Solomon must have been on the edge of a dark place, but at least he was jostled from it enough to respond. So, he had already had intentions of helping Adélaide find her daughter... regardless of her physical living situation. Zayn shifted and Brutus watched him nudge Solomon, but Brutus's own gaze narrowed slightly in disdain at the saber's words.

Sometimes his black-and-white way of thinking put the smallest brother on edge.

Ultimately, however, it seemed the striped lioness had made her choice, stepping over the border and towards the king. The features of his face softened with a light huff, the beginnings of a smile on his jawline, "... That solves it, then."

Adélaide and Jendayi would be reunited - Diello would ensure it.

Anger released in to some sense of relaxation when he felt his sibling brush against his shoulder bringing him back down from the building rage. Nostrils flared and ears swiveled as his brother agreed they find the child. A nod was given before Zayn commented on the notion that if she didn’t live with them then she wasn’t truly his. But was that how it worked? There seemed to be so much he didn’t know; always learning on a daily basis. What was right and wrong and how the world worked. All of it still felt foreign the older he grew. Yet there were things that he thought ‘felt’ right and he went based on that in most cases. Brutus lived in a world of mostly grey. Zayn lived in a world of black and white. Solomon was somewhere in between, believing in black and white yet still held some room for grey where he tried to make sense of things and live with some sense of a moral compass.

Then she spoke an apology in the sky language. It was one of the first words Iwaya taught him given how often he had to use it with her…especially when he got hurt and she felt it. Ears flattened against his head as he watched her cross the invisible boundary and press her head into his chest. And it seemed to be all it took to melt the anger away and a flood of different emotions came forth. Happiness, comfort and regret all filled him. Happy that she was there, comforted by her warmth. Yet regret lingered all at the same time. Was she giving up her chance to rule because of how they reacted to her? It wasn’t his intent, only to find the truth and to try and understand how the whole thing worked. Perhaps it would be something for another time, not in front of his brothers.

Instinctively left forepaw came up from the ground and tried to lay upon her shoulders in a semi embrace as she pressed in to his chest. "I promise we will find her." No matter what it took, he would learn the truth of Jendayi’s fate whether she was alive or dead and he hoped his brothers would help them in their journey. "Right?" He commented dryly as he turned to Zayn and Brutus, yet there was a hint of something else lingering on the tip of his tongue; determination that would not be swayed…

and the life you were promised never came, and your dreams are just as they seem

It was odd how easily their tension fell away. Although the air was still thick enough to suffocate on it, no longer did Adélaide’s heart pound so hard she could feel it in her ears. Their returning scents comforted her. She felt Solomon’s paw wrap around her, and all at once did her tentativeness fall away. She aimed to press further into his chest, and even so much as emit a soft, lulling purr. I promise we will find her, he said, and Adélaide’s wordless reply was nothing more than a breathless nod. The moment seemed to drag on with uncertainty, and soon the pale woman realized she could not leave them without more information. She had told them about Erevu, had told them Jendayi was most certainly alive. She was somewhere, she just wasn’t sure where.

“We’ve searched most of the northern territories…if she’s in Baraenor still, she’ll be south of here,” she finally stammered, but her tone was weak, as if still trying to recover from the long drawl of speech she’d said mere moments before. She did not realize how much nervousness and grief could tire her. “I can start there soon, can ask around…at least this time, we have leads. We will find her.” It was much less hopeless. They could spend less time combing the entire country and more time asking others; hopefully Jendayi was safe, and hopefully she was somewhere closeby, just under their noses. It was as hopeful as it was daunting.

She pulled back for just a moment, so she could peer into Solomon’s eyes. “I’d like to talk with you alone, if possible. It doesn’t have to be now…but eventually.” It felt odd, but Adélaide had many things to say. She had no idea yet what all the trio of brothers had planned for their pride, and what was to come in the coming days. She would wait patiently; it was the least she could do. For now, at the very least, she was tired, and wanted nothing more than to return home and settle in a den that had certainly long grown cold, but may not have lost her scent just yet.

He felt her press in to him and it seemed all the anger had fled. Perhaps all he needed was reassurance, a hug, anything. That had helped Zayn after all. They were generally at limbs length from everyone around them, but the moment they made contact it was as though everything else just melted away. He’d listen silently as she spoke of Jen being somewhere to the south as they’d already looked through the north. They had something to go off of this time which would hopefully speed up the process of their search. At least to the south there was only so far they could go. The ocean enveloped all sides beyond the land.

But before he could say much more on the topic she was requesting to talk alone. Gaze shifted from her to glancing at both his brothers, before looking back to her. "Now is fine."

He was pleased with Adelaides agreement to come back to them. It was, after all - for Solomons sake. The pale woman asked to have time to speak with his brother alone, and Zayn thought about telling him to just crouch on the woman - but he refrained. The saber watched as solomon left, looking down at Brutus with a grin before he also turned, heading back towards the pridelands and the dens. after all - it was Solomon who's female was so.. unable to make decisions. Not his own. at least Hestia knew what she wanted.. Kind of... and didn't run off to her own pride.

-Exit-

Solomon departed with Adélaide, leaving himself and Zayn before the saber looked down at him - Brutus returned the grin on the much larger male's features, sagging his shoulders slightly as he departed, leaving Brutus to his own devices. He lingered long enough to scan the rest of what he could see of the borders, and upon finding nothing of immediate interest, turned to backtrack towards his own den.
