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.

He was growing tired of the constant cold. Even in the temporary den he called his own there was no real 'warmth', only a wind break and some measure of warmth 'retention' from what his body produced. Spring could not come swiftly enough. Toes curling beneath the snow Copilas slipped forward from shadow to shadow, nose wrinkled ever so slightly against the chill - alert to signs of food ... or anything useful really.

Keela had still been stalking back and forth from the Bogs to the Forest.. She didn't want her true scent to be known. Not for a while yet. She was planning on raiding her own catches in the caches. And no one would stop her while it was abandoned.

A new scent in the air. Or perhaps not 'new' just newly reaching the edges of his senses. Flame coated limbs draw to a slow halt, the bright color then partly buried in snow. Hellfire eyes scan for the scent source, falling after a few moments on the pale lioness. Mmmm. To announce himself or not? Engage in conversation which may prove welcome or otherwise? Jaws part slightly, tongue pressing lightly against the roof of his mouth in contemplation.

Keela, the pallid lioness looking around for more of the caches that she had dug up for her own catches that she worked hard for to fill. The many fishing trips and catching warthogs to provide food for winters food. Her blue gaze glanced around for the small disturbances. As normal, Kohana was hopping beside his Bonded, helping her look.

She was searching for something, or so it appeared. Food most likely. However...what was this? There was....a snow hare right next to the lioness, did she not notice it? And where was the little nugget's self preservation instinct. How peculiar. Inhaling smoothly Copilas chooses to break his silence, black silken tones slipping into the icy air. "There is...a rabbit...next to you." so if you are looking for a meal... but then again, it was good practice not to eat an animal that was acting odd.

Hearing the sound of a voice, she looked over at the lion. One she had not actually met before by name. Raising a brow, she then laughed. "He's my Totem, uh my Companion, not a meal." Kohana moved closer to the woman as she moved herself closer to the Hare.

Totem. Companion. Like a pet then? He knew a few lions back in his birth land had kept birds as companions of sort. Well then, it looks like there would be no 'easy' meal in that form for either of them. "I will consider it off limits then. My name is Copilas. Copilas Shakti. What brings you to this lovely area?" and he meant it. The glow in this forest was spectacular and he had to wonder if it was her home, or if a need had drawn her to the location they presently shared.

Given a name by the lion, she returned with her own. “Keela ceruleo. I used to rule a pride here in this forest. But a lion stole it from my son and then the lion mysteriously left, abandoning it. I’m emptying the caches for the food that I hunted myself to take back to my new home.” Rolling her shoulders, she would never reclaim the forest.

Her name was committed swiftly and efficiently to memory, knowledge was valuable and he kept much close to his chest metaphorically speaking. "A pleasure to meet you Ms. Ceruleo. It is a beautiful forest. My condolences regarding your losses. It is good you have found a new home, winter is no time for roaming...even for those of matching coloration." a slight smile, it is hard to know how genuine the smile might be placed on slick onyx features but there is no falsehood in his voice or choice of words. The news she was removing the buried food was nothing to celebrate. One less survival resource. He would have to search farther afield.

Keela meshed well with the snow and the lights against the shadows of the fireflies. But the forest now held darkness for her mind and heart. “It’s a home I was guided to. It’s a fresh feeling of being in a new home. There is always room for those who seek safety and peace.” Rolling her shoulders, she moved to start getting closer to another hidden caches she dug.

One ear flicks subtly as he listens to her speak, orange eyes appearing to glow dimly with the forest's reflected luminescence. One forepaw (buried in the snow presently) drums conflagerent toes silently against the earth in contemplation. Logic argues with instinct behind his outwardly calm and relaxed gaze, his desire to remain apart from any command structure and distaste for being given instruction at odds with the simple necessities of survival and benefits of a secure location. "I could very much use a secure home, and if the offer stands accept with appreciation. Thank you Ms. Ceruleo. Where is home, and what is it called?"

He paused and she did not blame him. Flicking her ears, Kohana tucked himself more comfortably under his Bonded. “My home is at the Lagoon, called Izalith. The rulers are fair and give freedom. I am ranked as High Heiress, so welcome to Izalith.” Rolling her shoulders, she added, “and do just call me Keela.” Pausing for another moment as she looked around, “there are some who joined the former pride I ruled here, Komox , who go against me due to the ruler who took over . I’m not one who go raid at a war over personal vendettas.”

A Lagoon. The ocean. Was it only coincidence? Bittersweet the memories lap at the edges of his mind, a brief if piercing reminder of his purpose in these lands. "Thank you, Keela." Other bits of vital information, pride name, policy regarding freedom, her rank. And then bits of information regarding relations revolving around the former pride (such as she one ruled it) and potential ... complications. "I have seen bad blood due to being too violent and rushing to war, but not from withholding violence due to personal pollacy. Thats...an interesting thing to take offence over. Do you believe they will cause you grief in the future?"

As he pondered, so did she. Keela's sapphire eyes stayed locked on him for a moment before looking back down at the frozen ground. "The one who took over my pride was a Titan, a giant who towered near two feet above me. His mate had been raped by a lion and the Titan wanted to declare war and raid against the pride. He has since disappeared and the pride disbanded. That is why I'm taking /my/ catches out of the caches back to my new home." Rolling her shoulders lightly, she never understood the whole fiasco with it. "I'm often under-estimated. But, eh, I just go with the flow and manage issues when they arrive. I do not condone fighting for a revenge that can be dealt with on it's own." Not knowing if they made any sense, she would explain better. K'omox was her home with her Husband until the very end. Now that Indigo was gone, she had no drive to remake K'omox.

Brows arched as she elaborated on the circumstances of her pride loss. Near two feet taller? A monster indeed. Even he would be dwarfed in stature. There is a 'ah-ha' moment as the reason for heated emotions was reviled. The assault of a loved one. That would certainly do it. He would be out for someone's head. Could such a grudge be handled personally? Perhaps. At times it took an army to counter an army.

However, not all are revenge minded - and that she would not want to go to war for the man who had taken her pride was more than understandable. "Revenge always causes emotions to run hot, but war is not something to rush a pride into." Especially if a pride held cubs, elderly, non combatants, or lacked tactical strength and allies compared to their target. "I also lead a pride before my homeland fell to natures wrath. Going with the flow can be a figurative and literal life saver." He had been given no insight into future problems, but that could be dealt with later. "Is there anything you wish for my help caring back? If not I believe I will go head and travel to my new home, see if I can get settled in." and get a look around... a feel for the place.

“His emotions led him to go for my pride for a woman. And that woman is not his current mate. But he wanted war against a mans pride for a rape. And raid their territory.” Thinking for a moment, she added, “my cubs are now just adventuring out of the den. And I was called coward for not wanting to travel across these lands to fight.” Tail swishing behind her, she felt Kohana tap her leg in comfort with his tiny hand. “There are strange lions in these lands."

Lids fall a fraction over hellfire orbs as he listens patiently, attentively, to her unfolding explanation. While it was unlikely he would require this much detail it was welcome information regardless. Knowledge was valuable, precious, and collected even if its future use was uncertain. To be honest he did not see the problem with the lion wanting to go to war over rape (he would go for the death penalty), nor an issue with the lion having gone through more than one relationship.

The flaw he could sight was perhaps moving to draw a pride to war rashly, or expecting all members to participate on pain of being labeled cowards. But his thoughts on the matter were not the highlight here - hers were and it was her point of view he was collecting. His silken tone lifts once she finishes speaking "It is not reasonable to expect all to embrace war for any reason. Let alone new mothers and the expectant. With a new home and young cubs hopefully that unpleasantness can be left behind you." eyes drift to the hare noting its little comforting gesture before lifting to her face once more a dryly amused dark little smile lifting his lips almost playfully.

"Unfortunately I have learned there are strange souls in every land. Hence why we both go with the flow correct?" that was a trait they shared after all. "If trouble arises from your old pridemates in the future, please let me know, I would like to keep aware of it. Perhaps we can discuss this further in the future. In the meantime I will head to the lagoon for now and look at my new home. Thank you once again Keela, I am certain I will see you shortly." with a ghost of a smile Copilas dips his crown slightly in acknowledgment, in thanks, and in parting - and assuming she does not indicate a desire to stop him would take his exit.

As the lion listened to her, the black tipped ears swiveled as he spoke too. “Thank you. Hopefully you find the lagoon a great place to be.” When he dipped his head and moved along, she went back to searching for her own caches she dug. The ground was frozen so she was hopeful of the meat being preserved.
