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.

The time has come, with winter at its peak and the storms only getting stronger did Baan decide it was time to venture forth. The rise of chaos swirling in the colossal beasts mind. It was too much to ignore any longer. With the whispers of War along the breeze Irkbaan had felt it would do well to nestle another location within the mountains, ready another legion while the talk twisted on the breeze. He would not see to his brothers fall, it was Delker way. It was his way. A low rumble trailed thickly through his chest, large paws traveling the remainder of the distance east of the Fields where he was issued a kill order, Bring me his head. yellowed teeth shown through his crocodile grin, ink lips pulled into a tight sneer as his nub twitched along his rump. Nearing the coast his hellfire gaze would trail the thick wood, large knotted pines nestled within the depths of the ancient oaks. The faint scent of brine lingering on the chilled air, to either side, South and North were massive peaks, encased with a vibrant white cap. The pass was rough and long a thin shapely river lead straight to its entrance before tapering of into a choppy creek.

This place offered protection at least from the south and Respectably from the west as well as one would have to travel through the heart of the holy land to make their way easily into their soon to be pride-lands. From the South the Nyer's would butt up with their boarders. The only thing that lay open was the coastline to the North. Again his hellfire gaze would trail the wood, a large path lay before him and colossal paws would tread forward, jowls parting tasting the air for any tangible signs of threat before his gaze would fall unto a large flat boulder. This place would do well enough. Closing the distance between he and the boulder the beast would propel himself forward, powerful hind-limbs bunching and pushing him upward as he landed heavily upon the large flat stone. The wood would supply plenty shelter from the winter as well as the underlying caves within the mountains a suitable place to den. Iron-like claws would tease the snow laden snow beneath his massive paws as he lifted his jowls to the darkening skies, a deep guttural roar ripping through the storm laden skies, Welcome to Rothadt Erdő.

Sage rode quietly on her lioness back as they escaped into the night after the pride disbanded.

Since her arrival within the Hadur Nyers pride alongside her husband, she could clearly see the unrest within the beast. She had done her best to console him, but according to Sage there was much that Irkbaan had yet to speak of. On this day, she followed him. Closely. Sage soaring above watching around them for any threats. When they arrived, Rinexias ears perked as she exited the brush to join her male. She looked up at him with interest, casting him a coy little smirk as he claimed the region. She would venture forward aiming to move front paws onto his perch. A purr escaped her as she nipped at his legs. Her tail flicking pridefully behind her. A simple statement that she would follow him. Faithfully, Loyally. It was her duty to follow her husband, without hesitation. It was the only reason she paid no negative will toward his OTHER wives.

Like a spider drawn down delicate and flimsy strings of her web- she is drawn. Her steps light with her small frame. She was low in the manner of a predator on the prowl. Ebony locks managed to cast themselves in front of her ink masked eyes. She does well to follow her nose- a trace of him here and there. She had crossed the path of fields and from their had gone through the mountain. The trail was hazardous and hard to keep track of, but she was always able to find him. As if she had been his other half from the start. Thought of former husband rarely crossed her busy mind. Irkbaan had done well to wash away him memory with those of new. Even if she did not always agree with the thief who had stolen the femme- she loved him dearly. And fiercely.

She does not find the other lioness with ease. It unsettled the woman to have the other so near her husband. Though this would not be outright said. Head lifted as posture straightened and she aimed to stand rather than crouch for the prey. She aimed eyes away from the ivory wench and instead burned them in to that of her red lover. She would settle where she had come. Just out of the shadow of a tree off to the left. A yard or so to part her from the duo. Silence followed the wicked as if it was her wrecking ball. Though she would no go to him with her at his side. If she was to deal with this, 'intruder', she would rather ignore her completely.

After all first impressions weighed heavily and Rinexia had done everything to assure she did not leave a good one with the judgmental prize.

He could not help it as he followed the trail of his brother. The curiosity of why he did not go to hunt the brute- or home, lingered heavily in his mind as he moved. Of course the other male had some time before Rostam had started his stalking of him. Though it was no surprise as to find his red painted brother perched on top a fine flat boulder. The claim hung heavy in the air, but the king did not believe any would dare to contest it.

He nudged around a large tree trunk and made the trek to close the distance that remained. Enough to bring him near the base of the boulder just to the left of his elder brother. A smile laid out graciously to his kin on his ebony painted lips. "Good job." Attention would now seek to flash to other two faces. Both wore his own prides scent yet were first to arrive to Irkbaan. Was that... Bavmorda? He had thought she would of used Irkbaan's leave as a chance to flee. A smirk past to his brother. He must of done something right to keep her after he stole her. "Free for you take." His claim no longer held to these two women.

"Allies?" Of course he could assume it- but he rather hear it out loud to seal the deal that would be forged through more than just blood relations.

The girl had followed after her father, refusing to be held captive within the prides borders. She was 6 months old and had almost no connections with her father, siblings, or any other member within the pride. They had all abandoned her. Left her to herself. Thus, it was within her to do whatever the he'll she pleased. Entering the scene it was to see her uncle, father and 2 unknown females. She would look between all of them before coming forth and hoping up onto the rock, passing through her uncle's large paws she came to sit. Bicolored eyes stared at both females with a clear warning for them to keep their distance. She even gave a glare to the white and black female as she pressed a possessive paw utop her uncle's paw. This was HER uncle. And No one else could have him.

Nagybátyámat követem, Atyám. Bácsi megtanít harcolni, miközben gondoskodik Palan nénivel, testvérrel és rokonokkal. Naida stated, her eyes never leaving the two females. In her eyes they were unworthy of uncle. He deserved a true queen. Neither of these females was showing much of that.

•I follow uncle, Father. Uncle teach me fight while you take care of Aunt Palan, brother and cousins.I want stay here.

The beast would settle atop the stone, black iron like claws teasing its surface with a rhythmic tapping. His hellfire gaze trailing the surrounding wood line for any possible objection to his claim, though the only thing that seemed to seep from its very depths was that of Rinexia. A pleased grin would crease the mad kings jowls as she prowled forward, her own fore-paws seeking position upon the stone. It would be when she follows through with her intended plan, the subtle purr that escaped her lips and the playful nip at his own right leg would he give way for her to perch herself beside him. A slight snarl encasing his lips as the tips of yellowed teeth peered through. It wasn't of violence that the snarl protested but of a playful nature that only his wives would know. Her silence was welcomed as she took her perch along side him. Still the beast was aware of his surroundings, rounded ears on the swivel as yet another peeled from the shadows, this time it would be his tiny queen. Another pleased grin would crease his jowls, his hellfire gaze roving over his woman as she stuck toward the outskirts of the wood, claiming a spot to the left of them, her gilded gaze illuminating in their overcast like molten pools of gold. His hellfire gaze would return his wife's, a subtle chuff in greeting to her, again both of the women's silence was welcomed. Again the beast was waiting, the silence only setting in the confirmation of his claim upon the wood. His frame would adjust, relaxing only momentarily as yet another presence was heard. Quickly the brutes body would tense, his colossal head snapping in the direction in which his brother had trailed in. His morbid jowls would spread into a rather welcoming grin, one of familial ties and beamed of a happiness that his brother was here.

His approval was well appreciated as he had hoped that it would go over well with him, for if it didn't he'd hate to have made an enemy out of family, but he would if it was necessary. His grin would broaden as his brother released his claim upon his wives bidding them over to him freely, "Thank you Brother." he would state his tones were light and bid to his mood, almost a bit too gleeful for the brute, though the husky undertones were still present. His gaze would part from him briefly as yet another was to join him, this time they were of smaller stature and smelled strongly of Rostam. He wasn't yet familiar with this one, but knew her to be one of Rostam's cubs. He had only remembered her from their first meeting, when her mother had brought them out a bit too early and Ros had demanded them back to the den, but other then that Baan was slim when it came to know exactly who she was. He would allow the girl to settle at his paws as she pressed between legs, a paw settling on his as she spoke to her father. "Can stay if wish." his words were directed at Rostam, his hellfire gaze trailing to his brother before it would filter between his wives. He knew it would be a hard decision for Ros to make if he were to allow it. "Of course Brother, Allies till end." he'd rumble yellowed teeth peering through their inky veil as a broad grin creased the beasts jowls. "Blood Thicker then water." he'd add as he'd carefully step around the juvenile, stepping down from his perch he'd aim to press his forehead against his brothers, a sign of promise. He'd move round his brothers flank taking to his left side before he'd settle before him, falling to his haunches his gaze would attempt to meet his own. "This another stronghold. Room for family flee if goes ill." He'd state referring to what Palancia had discussed in the Fields. "Protected, dense, good hiding." he'd add before looking toward his wives and to his niece that sat with his newly acquired woman. "Any want protected welcome, brother." he'd state, his tones sincere as he looked upon his younger brother. "Welcome home, Bavmorda, Rinexia. Fight tooth and claw with brother. Will aide." he'd rumble toward his women, this was a demand one that he'd see to it that was kept.

Baan was quite the creature. And perhaps Palancia had him dead wrong, saw through rose colored glasses when it came to certain lions, but as strange as he may be she did love him. He was reliable if nothing else, and amidst him she was reminded how you are supposed to feel around family- secure. You do not walk on eggshells around your siblings- they jump to your defense before jumping on you for your own slights against them. With Irkbaan Palancia felt she had the brother she never did growing up. And for that reason her emotions were complex- a mixing couldron of two elements that did not want to harmonize. Happy that he might rise to this challenge and thrive outside of Rostam's shadow. Furthering the might of the family itself. But saddened by the distance, however slight it was.

She came to stand near Rostam, leaning her small weight against his bulk without thinking about doing so. Natural behavior was long ago second nature- he was around, she and he were touching. Silence left on her lips but eyes speaking the volumes she felt forming inside. She was happy, and she'd feel every step of space between them.

Without hesitation, the raptor would smoothly descend from above, coming to perch upon the newly crowned Kings shoulders. Now that her lioness and he were mated the Raptor claimed the male under her wing sending a quick hiss of warning to all in case they held any I'll intent toward her lion. She would aim to move further up gracing the king with her presence as she calmly began grooming his sparse mane, beady yellow eyes taking in all around them.

He would rumble at her as she joined. And when he descended leaving the glaring child with her she would merely lower her hunches and smile at her husband. A quick nod affirmed her mates choice. He addressed the other woman before stating her own name and a casual look was offered to the other wife of her husband. Regardless who SHE was, Rinexia allowed him whatever he liked. After all, he had been HERS long before the Bavmorda woman had become HIS. SHE would claim as many husband's as Saruman allowed her. But this Bavmorda woman would meet a quick and brutal lashing if she tried to place Rinexia below her. That was one thing Rinexia would be clear on.

Your chilling is welcome among us, Rosta. She has quite the potential for an excellent Soldier it appears. Rinexia would state calmly addressing Rostam directly. She didn't really know him, but that didn't stop her from speaking up, unlike the pale queen who stood at his side. Rinexia would offer a quick and curious look toward the woman, curious as to why she didn't speak but she was otherwise kind and cordial with a calm smile and nod of her head in greeting to her.

Monsters in the shadows;

The glance from her husband before he addressed them was not missed. She straightened under his sights and returned it with a glare of her own. The other woman's name was dully noted and stored away for future reference. Though she doubted it would ever be put to use from her own lips. Bavmorda had no reason to speak with this new wife Irkbaan had found who knows where in this damnable land of Baraenor. Bavmorda need not place Rinexia beneath her, because in her mind- Rin was already there.

Attention casually slipped to Rostam as he made scene. A brother to her husband that she vaguely met in the homeland. Gaze moved next to the golden woman at his side. The dark child all but ignored by the feral woman as she tossed away a strand of ebony hair from her vision. It mattered not as the wench wife made note of her regardless. However it is only silence that Bavmorda remained tucked away into. Observant and eager to learn information instead of share it.

His brother began to speak and Rostam found himself listening with great care to store away all that he said. He offered the pride as a safe place in case the war happened to find their home. A fact that he hoped would not come, but would assure they did not fall if it did. Naida joined them lately and presented herself at Irkbaan's side with a glare to his woman. A brow raise in confusion but he did not speak. Not even as her request left her mouth and Irkbaan found it alright to grant her the permission she was after to stay. His lips tightened together in to a thin line.

"You give up right to heiress." He would strip the girl. If she wanted to be here, she would hold no more rights to her home pride. "Keep her alive." Safe wasn't his word of choice. But as long as she was alive, he would not place any blame on his brother for her life. He felt Palancia as she leaned in to his side. Head turned to look at his golden queen. Their own daughter would have to assume the role to take over after Palancia. A shame as he had high hopes for his first daughter to lead in her stead. His wife is silent and it left him to turn his attention back to Irkbaan and the others.

"None will take coast." A promise and a vow. With the brothers both along the east coast, he had no fear that someone would be able to conquer it. He would see to it that neither shall fall.

Baan's hellfire gaze would fall unto the golden queen as she made her way into the gathering, her silence welcomed as a small smile would be offered in her direction. She was a sweet woman, one that reminded him of his mothers odd nature, or a side he cared to only remember. Rounded ears would twitch as Rinexia spoke up, welcoming the child warmly, just as he hoped she would have. Bavmorda's silence was also expected, after all she wasn't much of a talker, never has been. His gaze would fall to her once again, a need that burned deep lingered in their depths as his gaze met his. There was a bond there, that none could fill. One that had connected on a very different level. There was a presence that lingered heavily within the trenches of his mind, one feral and lashing out on a weathered chain, there was something that the small woman created within him that fueled the beast something that would ensure their survivle. Though it would be Rotsam's words that would catch his attention, pulling his gaze from his wife and upon him before they would fall to the child. There was reasoning behind the stripping of her rank and the tone that trailed forth from his brother. And in some mild way did Baan regret agreeing with such a thing at first from the underlying pain that could be sensed within his brothers tone. "Will do," he'd state breifly before turning his attention to the child. "Welcome to new home, child." his tone would trail on a hoarse note. He would ensure the safety of his neice, for Rotsam's sake. The last words to trail from his brothers lips seemed to take the previous emotion and throw it out the door. The east coast would belong to the brothers, that they would be sure of. He would give a hefty nod in his direction, a toothy grin creasing his inky lips. "We prepare. Gather much food, herb, medicine." he'd state, there was a war underpaw.
