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.

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!

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.

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

While she aimed to keep pace with some of the Ishta Kalos folks, she made somewhat of a hurried rush home while those in Ishta gathered their things. This would be something of a surprise to her own pride mates and she didn't wish for it to come as a hard surprise. Nothing would change and she would make sure that everyone was looked after but they deserved a few minutes heads up. So without wasting much time she crossed into the borders of home and called for whatever pride mates were nearby. She didn't think anyone would openly refuse to participate or ask to leave, but she had to be prepared for some animosity.

Breath in, Breath out. Just because Zulema was calling the pride didn't mean it was anything bad Moses. You'd get to see her again, really see her be an Empress just like you want her to be. But he was nervous. He couldn't help it. The forest was not yet the most familiar world to him- the shadows were strange and the birdsong phased him. He took notice to every cricket chirp on his walk over- he entered like a kitten, a little lower to the ground than he could be. Legs moving quickly and quietly to carry himself near to Zulema. "Hey." He greeted, quick and quiet- letting his eyes wander away from her to see who else might be coming around.

Archduke

#3
The spotted Archduke had be resting with his family when the meeting was called. Dipping to scoop a cub onto his back for a fun ride, he was satisfied to allow the others to ride clinging to his legs while the family ventured to heed their Empress's call. Winchester would surely be at his side, never straying too far from the babes. They were the center of both parents' world, and Loch for one could never imagine them not existing.

He was glad for meeting their mother and coming here, to Anima. It made him all the more loyal to the people and land to have planted roots here. One thing was for certain, the blue merle didn't plan on going anywhere for the foreseeable future. So he'd settle comfortably not far off from the crimson woman, careful to nudge any stray cubs out of the way so they wouldn't be crushed beneath his weight. Loch would stoop low then to allow the child on his back to slide off safely.

"Hello, Empress Zulema." he'd rumble pleasantly, noticing also the presence of a male he didn't know. The fellow seemed nervous, so the saber offered him a gentle smile and nod as well. "Hello, sir. I'm Lochlan Delekr." rank didn't appear strictly necessary in this instance, it may only make the boy more nervous to be under the attention of the Archduke. Not to mention, he wasn't the sort to flaunt his rank, unless it needed to be done. As King, he'd been more up front, but that was out of formality.

Settling comfortably in for the meeting, the brute would wait patiently for the rest of the Pride to gather, and for the meeting to start. Golden eyes would trace carefully the movements of his young as well, to be sure to keep them out of the way of others and prevent them from being a hindrance to the proceedings.

thackery was already counting his blessings for not having been picked up by his father. being placed on his back seemed dangerous and watching his sibling getting a free ride like that made his stomach feel like it was full of butterflies. not to mention, hanging onto his legs? the starry child was much more content to use his limbs which were slowly becoming better to use and be tired over it.

hanging around his mother's feet the whole trip, when they got to the meeting place, thackery was content to flop down against his father's flank with a huff.

was he allowed to sleep during meetings? ignoring the other lions coming around them, thackery dug himself a cozy spot in his father's odd hide and stared around with large, perked ears.

He was ever quick to answer the call of his leader, particularly when it was Zulema. He had watched her grow up, albeit from a distance, and he was proud of her ability to now stand before them as the ruler of this pride. He hoped that her reign would be a long and prosperous one, and would do everything in his power to make it so.

Arriving on scene, he offered Zulema a deep, respectful nod of his head before taking a seat a short distance from the larger part of the gathering. He never had been the most sociable of creatures. Maybe he should be working on that instead of just wandering around the border... but it worked for him thus far.

Winnie followed more slowly after her lumbering husband. he was entertaining their children, so it gave her time to rest. the birth had been hard on her. three cubs and one of them quite large indeed. it made the small woman take a breather. Thackery was nearby, causing her to bend down once to give him a swift lick on the head before they joined the others. some others were here already, with Zulema at the front. she already knew from Lochlan's words that the heiress would be rising as empress.

gathering herself as quickly as possible, Winnie curled near to Lochlan as he settled. between them were the cubs, making sure they wouldn't cause a ruckus during Zulema's very first meeting. a nod was given to Seraphiel as she noticed him farther away. still, she acknowledged him. forever grateful for his assistance long ago. “remember to sit still and listen” she said quietly to their children, her orange gaze drifting back to the newly crowned Empress. Winnie would blink encouragingly at the girl.

He moved slowly - the injuries to his left leg having tightened and inflamed the muscles around the years-old site. Perhaps while he had been striving to find them a home, he had simply walked too much. Done too much and forced his limb into overdrive. Zayn had not missed the looks of disappointment some of the Ishta Members had given, and he hoped that in time, they would come to understand the sabers reasoning behind what he had done. After all - Family is really what mattered most to him, and doing what he could to keep his family together was tantamount to any pride he had.

Amethyst gaze swept over those that were present before he shifted, easing himself down to the loam of the forest floor, giving his niece a nod of respect. He would do as he had told her - he would help guide and teach her the ins and outs of leadership - things he had often learned through fire and blood if he was to be perfectly honest about it. Zayn hoped that his children would come - he would need to have some one on one discussions with his older offspring - namely Dante who had given him a look that had left him feeling oddly hollow.

When Zulema calls, she is there. Persephone simply figures that it is an opportune time for Anima to gather and the lavender tabby is eager to see if the rest of her family might show their faces. She arrives to a crowd, the woman offering small smiles to those strangers before settling herself in a free space towards the sides. Here, she can observe the crowd and note each of them by sight and smell. What she does note about the Empress is that there is some urgency in the way she sits and to the auburn figurine, Persephone offers a warm smile, hoping that all was well.

JUNIPER FAYE MOON


Juniper was a very intelligent little cub, she was able to grasp things that perhaps a child her age should not be understanding. Highly intuitive she had quickly picked up on the vibes that she was getting from the other individuals, there was some important meeting being held and when she heard the call she found herself moving out of her den and heading towards it. She felt brazen enough to travel on her own without the supervision of her mother or father, after all she was four months old now which was a pretty big deal. Moving forward the uniquely striped female made her way towards the smells of her fellow pride members and thankfully they were not far away from her. When she arrived there was a few individuals already gathered and even some younger cubs as well. She had not been aware of other cubs in the pride and that intrigued her. For now she sat alone, waiting for her siblings and parents to arrive as she had been early herself.

Altair had been lazying about the family den, gnawing away at a stick. His eyes lifted to his smallest sister, grunting around the stick in his mouth but his words muffled. It didn't seem like she heard him anyway. So he spat out his toy, stretched and then proceeded to lumber after Juniper.

Brows slightly drew together as they came upon a growing crowd. He looked at his sister with confusion. Why had she come here? Shouldn't they have waited until mom or dad had brought them? And speaking of their parents, blues locked onto a young female and his irises began to flash pink before staying blue. He thought the female to be their mother at first, but with further inspection..
He shouldered Juniper gently to get her attention. "She looks like mother." He whispered, gaze still on Persephone.

Despite how often she recognized Anima as family and that they were her everything. The only thing, aside from her sister, that had ever meant anything to her - she still felt the lingering sense of doubt and pain. The feeling that they might not accept her as empress and they might not accept the fact that Anima was about to introduce its inner sanctum to a lot of fresh faces. Zulema definitely wanted this to work out with the least amount of personal casualties. She wanted everyone to be happy and excited for these changes but it was easy to tell herself that not everyone would see this as a great opportunity.

Moses, unsurprisingly, was first and she greeted him with a big smile. One that was reserved for very few individuals but it was comforting to know, to remember, that he was here to support her. He had left his own previous life (wherever that was) just so he could be there for her. Oh! He had left all that behind because she didn't have family with her here... and now, they would be. Would Moses be upset? Would he feel replaced? Hey, she said quietly to her pale friend and hoped that she could talk to him after the meeting. More than anything, she didn't want this to jeopardize their friendship or for him to even begin to think that he wasn't important. Because, to be fair, he was Lochlan was kind enough to say hello to her as well to her pale friend by her side. Casually leaning against Moses to secure that he was very, very welcome here. Next came Seraphiel who had been here for a while now and had seen many things, even been around when Zu had gone through a hard time with Nkosi's death. She didn't see him much but was glad to see he was still here despite all the changes. Next came Winchester and her happiness continued. Seeing faces so friendly that it made her feel all the more at home within the forest.

Uncle Zayn must've been quicker than Zu had thought he'd be for he took his place but her gaze quickly swept to Persephone, eager to share her experiences with the tabby lavender girl. Just like Moses, she felt a kinship with the girl and hoped that she wasn't being too aggressive in believing that Persephone could be her pseudo-sister. The two next were cubs, Max's no doubt, for their striped bodies gave away almost instantly their lineage.

With a few folks now settled in, Zulema looked to each face and hoped that her good vibes would be their good vibes. Welcome. Um, I know it's only been a quick-second since I became Empress. But I'm really excited to be able to see Anima as a whole now, to see each part connect to another. Real glad that you've made it here, because something big is coming. She hoped that they would all thing good and not bad kind of big but mostly she just wanted them to know that she was super thankful for them. Anything, and everything, they had to offer. Whether that be their presence, a smile or a pat on the back - she loved them. Being the only Kivasante in Anima, my Uncle Zayn will be merging his pride, Ishta Kalos, with Anima to help guide me as a leader. My father left a while back and my sister not long after, so my training was at a standstill. His son, my cousin Finnian, will be my heir for now as he has been in training too. This merge means that we have more protection than before, more opportunities to grow and learn... I won't be changing ranks for those already here. Lochlan and Winchester are still my Archduke and Archduchess. Furor and Reshmi still Count and Countess. She paused, a little sour sad that neither had shown up but she had to remind herself that this wasn't mandatory and she didn't wish to throw the hammer down for just a small meeting to inform her members. My Uncle has been appointed Baron for the time being. I request that if anyone want a rank to help out, to see me privately. We have many members who have different skills so don't be afraid to ask for help! Was that it? Merging, ranks, opportunity... family. She wanted to make sure everyone felt comfortable but she was sure that it would be an adjustment. While it was a small gesture, she shuffled her feet so that there was a slight lean in towards her pale friend by her side. Please accept me and this merge.

She was late, but it didn't stop her from coming. Her children were here, at least some of them. Asclepius was missing once more, Megara was as well. And Coralie. While she worried for her other children, her mind focused on Coralie due to her age. It made her chest tighten, but she would go searching for her after the meeting was over. There was likely a reasonable explanation. She was probably sleeping in the den or exploring the surrounding area. Ears dart forward as Zulema begins to speak. So Anima was merging? She hums softly, hoping that the young Empress would not get overwhelmed with the amount of numbers. Admittedly, her involvement in the pride had been limited due to focusing on her family. Perhaps she was to be condemned for that, but if that were the case, she would continue to just keep to herself. She was one of Anima's longest standing members, and, she liked to think - it's most loyal. Moving over to Persephone first, Maximelia offers her daughter a gentle nuzzle along her cheek before the tabby woman situated herself over to the younger of her brood. A low chuff is made to usher them closer. Turning to the Empress, Maximelia speaks up, "I will be coming to speak with you soon, Zulema." She comments quietly, respectfully. It would be interesting to see how things went from here on out.

━━━━━━━━━━━━
there was little else to say and do, for Zulema had thought of everything. while Winnie would be honored to continue to serve as Anima's archduchess, she realized some people may gun for her position eventually. especially if she didn't contribute more. the pride was larger and some held ambition. people she barely knew and people she barely saw. outside of her family, she was in seclusion lately. but she had no idea there had been another pride so close by, and run by the saber man she saw attending the meeting. their new empress had been busy.

and seeing as no one else was congratulating her... the russet woman rose to her paws, smiling at the young woman. “c-congratulations, Empress Zulema” she could not hope to speak for everyone; just her family. Zulema had stepped up when Lochlan stepped down to be with them. she was grateful to the former heiress. "I'd be honored to continue as archduchess, and I-I hope to contribute more when my c-cubs don't need me as much. if I can help you out in any way, please seek me out." though she faltered to know how much help she really would be to the girl.

she spoke no objection of the pride's new size. for now, she would lower herself back to the ground. ideas briefly swarmed in her mind but she pushed them aside in favor of listening to Zulema speak.

Gentle time will heal our sorrows
His heart gently fluttered with Zulema's voice- his lips curled and smiled as he got a few brief moments with her alone. Fortunately it only took one more to arrive before he realized he was watching her like an idiot and love sick puppy and he quickly snapped his pale eyes away from her to watch others arrive. He cleared his throat, feeling his cheek flush up bright red and stomach twist. Hopefully a few stranger's faces would ease his embarrassment back into his natural nervousness. It took one strange. One long toothed stranger. Moses had been forewarned of the Saber but was hardly ready for it at all. He gulped and a single shiver ran down his spine- there was something feral about the air as Lochlan arrived, kind and calm as he was- with doting family abound, the first impression hit him hard.

Gods help him when Zayn arrived. "Another?" He whispered, perhaps loud enough for Zulema to hear above his astonished gasp and trembling breathing. His eyes locked on Zayn's feet- he tried to wander them up to Zulema Uncle's face but failed at his teeth, vicious off white canines hanging past the fringes of his jaw. Zulema was speaking he realized- her voice ringing like a far away bell in his ear. He barely registered what she was saying but tried to let her familiar voice ground him, and bring him back. Despite the news that the prides were merging he still felt that she needed him- he would not waver in his promise however much he wanted to run away right now among the sea of strangers. Things began to wrap up- his breathing was slowing and he quickly let his eyes shift over to the fiery woman beside him. "Good job." He silently mouthed the reassuring praise to her. For now the pale guardian beside her did not seem ready to leave..

Zulema explains that two prides are to merge and Persephone shoots the Empress an encouraging nod, not seeing an issue with the concept. It would be interesting to see what would come of it, if at all. Perhaps sh would simply have more strangers to interact with.

More enter and aqua gaze pinpoints another child that bears the same tabby patterns as she. Regardless, Persephone does not need to wait much longer to discover that as she had first thought, they are related. Maximelia sweeps in and greets her warmly, something that the lavender tabby responds with unbridled eagerness, attentive to her maman. It is when her mother moves off to be with her new brood that Persephone grows uncertain, doing her best to keep her attention away from the prospect of her half-siblings.
