The cure has been found! Wolves on Anikira are recovering from the disease and life is moving forward with the promise of pups in many packs. And yet darkness looms on the horizon, daring the creatures of Anikira to relax and allow themselves to get comfortable once more.
[attr="class","post"]The trek had been long and difficult, particularly in the company of the small pup. Leviathan had not trusted anyone around her; she would not be left alone for even the briefest of moments. It was because of this that within hours of leaving the cavern, Leviathan turned back. The now tattered body of his dear brother rested beneath the water's surface in South Igneir, mingling with the bodies of the animals that had not escaped the volcano's wrath. He would rise again one day, of that Leviathan was sure. Raum was mere steps below Leviathan himself, and it seemed from the womb of his mother his equal had been born. Their family was an entirely intertwined network of power and omniscience. Vi was simply the gift he had patiently been awaiting. Harlot had not succumbed to his needs and desires in the end, simply because she had been indoctrinated outside of his rule. But Vi... she was different. She was perfect and marked with the kisses of the angels themselves. She was sent to him to mold into the perfect mother of new gods and goddesses. Whereas his first litter had been born of a deviant, his future spawn would be birthed from a mother worthy to bear such deities.
It was a shame that he had wasted his brother's namesake on the pathetic excuse of a son from that whore.
But nonetheless, he would do whatever it took to ensure Vi's protection. She was his main priority until she was old enough to protect herself. And so the pair trekked further and further east, headed as far away from his deranged mother and the ones who might have sought to harm them. The brute alternated between carrying the small pup and allowing her to walk alongside him when their pace did not need to be as swift. There was lots of terrain to cover, and yet Leviathan never let the little white pup leave his sight. He was mesmerized by her, and as the days passed, the more the obsession grew. He hunted for her. Groomed her. Watched over her every move in a way that he had not even done with his own pups. She was special, and in time she would grow to see that.
"You are different. You were born of the Gods, and I will protect you," he would whisper to her every night as his hulking body curled around her tiny one. And at day break each day, the pair would rise and continue onward. Leviathan was not certain of their destination. He simply knew that he would allow no harm to come to her, and the western lands were wrought with relatives and threats. Further east, he knew little of those who shared his blood. Those were the most dangerous of all; they weaseled their way into his life and went for the throat at the last moment. He would not allow it.
After what seemed like several weeks of travel, the pair found themselves faced with an entirely new land, tucked away to the south of the massive mountains that surrounded the Oriens. As Leviathan peered into the dense, almost void-esque bamboo forest, something about it felt like home. This was where their journey ended.
"Little one, it seems we have found a place to call home," he stated calmly.

Jaidah is one of the albinos on the site, a brand new character brought to life by a brand new player. It is interesting to see how such a pure looking being could be wrapped up in the angsty claws that is Irkalla! We will definitely be staying in-tune with this character to see just what heights Bird is able to take her!
