Winter, Year 1

Where is the snow? As autumn fades into winter, the temperatures are still unusually high, and excepting areas in high elevations and of normally frigid temperatures, snow refuses to fall. Even rain is hard to find these days, and as the crystal clear skies beat down upon the earth, not a cloud in sight, one can begin to wonder what is going on with the world. The golden grass is crisp and dry, and though the fires have slowed with the seasons, there is still a hint of smoke in the air, and every now and then a small one crops up. The rivers are beginning to dwindle to a trickle, and mud has dried into thick cracked clay.

A rush of air was not something unknown to her as she was pulled away from where she had been. The sudden traveling was not that unknown to her either, but the loss of control over the action was. Soon solid ground was under her, she tried to save the landing, but something immediately felt off, causing her to meet the ground with her face instead. For a moment she lay there, grumbling under her breath before standing and brushing herself off. Looking around, she knew right away that she wasn't in a land she knew, the trees were far larger, and the feeling in the air was almost unnatural to her. Frowning she reached for her sword and only found air.

Red eyes went wide and she tried again, despite knowing it was not there. Cursing she also realized she felt lighter, an indication that her armor was also gone. Now with an increased heart rate, she looked around in a panic and then went to a stream she spotted. Her reflection confirmed her fears that her weapon and armor were gone. It seemed she still looked the same, even down to still having sharp teeth. Catching movement behind she spotted a tail and turning her head found that it was attached to her body, that was new. "Where are my things?" she mused to herself, then realized if those were gone then... Eyes wide again she checked her reflection again and sighed in relief as she spotted the gold like gleam of her earring. Good, that was still here.

Standing she growled lightly, feeling that her senses had changed from what she was used to. They were still here but seemed muted somehow. Shaking her head she moved, trying to figure out where she might be from her surroundings. There were many lands she had not yet been to after all, but she knew by instinct that she was no longer in Nogard...let alone Htrea.

Padding along through the forest, the girl skulked. This whole situation was unfair to her. If it had not been for those blasted soldier, she would be home in Ellennora milking the fruits of her father's success. She was the rightful heir to the throne. It was her place, and she was princess, but now she was here, and things were not going in her favor. "Do this," they said, "do that," they said. There was a lot of stuff to do, and she had no desire to get her nails dirty or put in a little elbow grease. She was a princess, not some little peon servant like Ava, who, by the way was completely worthless with her broken leg. Why did she have to pick up the slack of others when even the lowlife servants were being lazy. I was unfair.

Huffing to herself, she didn't notice the much larger woman traveling through the woods until she had practically stumbled up on her. Tripping a bit, but regaining her footing before completely falling to her delicate face, she mumbled a rude "Excuse you.." before turning to look at the other creature. She could tell that she was female by her scent, but taking a look at her, dread started creeping in on her.

The woman standing in front of her was large, much more athletic than Alouetta could even claim in her human form. She was an elf, built light and lithe, for speed, and not necessarily strength. She was as elegant as she was dainty. This woman looked like she could kick some ass. Behind her was a long black wolf tail, so apparently they shared some traits, and she could see sharpened teeth poking from beneath her lips. That wasn't what startled her though. It was the glowing red eyes. Something about them frightened the wolf, and while she had met others with red eyes before, she had not had good experience with them, plus they were glowing.

Tucking her tail between her legs, the girl took several steps back from the towering human. She felt so small and pathetic, but something about her wolf form made her feel safer. She could shift into an elf, but she lacked the weapons necessary to defend herself if she had really truly angered this other person. At least in this form, she had claws and teeth to defend herself if need be. "Oh... Ummm..." she muttered while backing away, eyes down to the ground. She wouldn't apologize for the stranger's mistake, because it wasn't her fault that the other had been in her way, but she had nothing else to throw at her so she just mumbled. "ummm"

Epoh turned and found herself looking to a wolf, not only that but she was sure it had talked. Now, many animals could talk in her homeland, but a wolf? They were thought to be wild and fierce animals. Seeing as she now had a wolf tail, she supposed she would fit that role under certain circumstances. In any case, this creature was acting as if it was afraid of her, a mere human. Frowning she moved, going to one knee and more on eye level with the strange animal. 

"My apologies, I was not paying attention to my surroundings" it had been a foolish thing, and she made a mental note to be more careful since she didn't have a weapon to her name. Well, unless she used her fists and maybe her teeth. That thought aside, perhaps she could talk with this wolf and see if she could get information. "I find myself lost, would you be willing to tell me where I am?" she may as well ask politely. Even if she wasn't a stranger in a new land, she would be polite, it was how she had been trained and raised. Watching the wolf carefully, she hoped she would gain an answer.

For too long he had spent cooped up in the castle trying to get things settled within the kingdom and Katie had grown bored. Going about the daily grind was many things, mind numbing being one of them. His siblings where off doing things, his cousin even seemed to have more of a social life then himself. He was the Emperor he should be out meeting people. Not just his people, but people in general. He wasn’t going to get that far in life sitting in the castle hiding behind paperwork. Nor was he going to find an Empress that way, but that wasn’t something he was activity searching for at the moment anyways for he was still mourning the lost of his beloved Evergreen. Letting out a sigh the man stalked the halls of Everstone Castle trying to think of his next move when he saw his dear cousin slip out. His brows raised as he wondered what trouble she was off to find and so he silently followed her. He kept a good space between them so that he wouldn’t be noticed and wearing a navy blue cloak over his clothes he made sure to keep the hood up and hide his face. As he followed her a guard did notice, but he quickly motioned for him to hush by lifting a finger to his lips and the guard just bowed softly and moved along.

Once at the edge of the city where he couldn’t just blend into the crowd Tiarsus shifted into his wolf form. As he shifted he allowed for much more space between them as he wasn’t relying on sight anymore, but rather scent. So he stayed still until he could no longer see her, after all she should have her freedom to roam, she is a big girl. Still young, still just a child in his eyes, but he had to learn to let his family go into the world and allow them to grow up in their own way and own time.With all that had happen though it was hard to not collect them all and lock them in a tower to keep them safe, but what type of king would he be then? What type of brother would he be? Not a very nice one that is for sure.

Following his nose was pretty easy. At first everything had been hard, but now he had gotten pretty used to it. Shifting from elf to wolf, wolf to elf came easy now. The ice magic on the other hand? That was a tricky little devil he was still having loads of issues with. As he ran he stepped in a puddle and felt how cold it was. Jumping forward he thought it was going to turn into ice, but no it was just a cold puddle. Shaking his head Katie sighed. Breathing in deeply and letting it out slowly and paused mid step as he found another scent mixed with his cousins. This made the hairs on the back of his neck raise and his heart beat rage in his chest as he ran as fast as he could. Moving around a tree he came into view just as the two bumped? Looking at the two he was pretty sure that Allouetta had just tripped over herself and blamed the other women, but he didn’t have a very good angle. Staying back he stood in the shadows of a tree as he watched and listened to the two with narrowed eyes. Annoyance sat upon his muzzle, but not at the stranger. It was just general annoyance. “Aspasia. You are in Aspasia. More to the point in an area open and free. Not governed by any single kingdom.” He spoke in a smooth tone as he came into view. Walking forward he moved to stand next his cousin. Looking between the two for a moment before he shifted out of his wolf form and into his elf. “It is a pleasure to meet you miss welcome to Aspasia. I am Tiarsus Marsus of the Vasta Kingdom to the north.” He said giving a small bow of his head. “And you are?” He asked in a curious manner.

OOC: I got a bit carried away no need to mirror.

Seeing the woman kneel in front of her, Allouetta was halfway expecting for the other to try to reach out and pet her. Though she looked like a wolf, the thought disgusted her. She was not a pet, and did not want to be petted... unless she was moving in to attack. However, upon hearing the woman apologize, Allouetta allowed herself to relax slightly. At least if she was ignorant, she was polite... and had not made a move to humiliate her. Practically rolling her sky blue eyes, she still huffed inwardly at the other's clumsiness. She could not see how it was her fault. The other should have been paying attention. She still looked frightening however, and the red eyes threw her off. In Alouetta's mind appearance was nearly everything. The rest had to do with everyone's abilities to give her what she wanted. She was rightful queen after all, a princess at that. She wasn't there to serve, but to be served.

"Yeah, yeah, it's fine." She grumbled, averting her gaze to the side and backing up a few more steps, practically stumbling on a twig in the process.

Feeling that familiar hint of irritation. She shoved the thought of the oh-so-righteous Tiarsus out of her mind. He thought he had the right to the throne, but he didn't did he. He ran away like a coward... though she supposed she had too. Ugh. Why was life so complicated? Her uncle had done the right thing, had secured the throne for him, and eventually for her, but he had failed to keep the soldiers from the opposing army in check. She had to leave or else risk losing her life... or possibly worse.

Scowling deeply, her brow knitted in irritation, she hadn't caught a word in before she caught a familiar scent, and heard the "righteous king's" ever so beautiful voice. Rolling her eyes, visibly this time, she groaned as she let him finish his spiel. Oh Tarsus Marsus. So rightfully holy. King of Vasta. Blah blah blah. It was pathetic. But he was so good at it. Acting the rightful emperor. Except for his humility. She could see the polite bow of his head, the dignity in which he talked, and it made her a bit ill. It was as if he was meant for the position, which he obviously was not, but he acted it. He acted as if it was his simple duty, no more, no less, and she criticized it. If she was queen she would let everyone know. She would glower down on them in regal coldness. Demand that they serve her. Make the kingdom great and powerful. But at this point, it was an empty dream. An "if only." Maybe one day she would rise, and she would laugh at him. Laugh at all of them. But... who knew...

Epoh moved her red gaze to another wolf who came, also speaking. She watched as the beast turned into an elf and understood a bit more about this place called... "Aspasia?" it was not familiar to her ears, and she frowned deeply at the fact. Even if she had not traveled to all the lands of Htrea, she had been taught them. Great, so she wasn't even in her own world. "I am Epoh" she bowed her head "Of the Kingdom Nogard, which I don't believe is...here..." it saddened her to know that, but she supposed if she was stuck here she would have to make the most of it. Now that she thought of it, that meant she had no home...no rank, and no reason to fight. 

Grinding her teeth lightly she formed a fist with one hand and brought it to her chest. "Please sir, tell me more about these lands...are there maps? Are there weapons...is there magic?" she figured there was magic from how he had changed from wolf to elf, however that could just be a trait of his race more than a spell used. She prayed to the five dragons that there was at least magic, and hopefully a place where she could buy gear to replace what had been lost... Thinking of that made her realize she likely didn't even have any money anymore either. She would have to check later, for now, she awaited an answer to her questions.

Katie hadn’t been trying to be some righteous knight, or some high and mighty king. No the young man had merely been polite. He tried his best to treat everyone with respect and as if they were important as a kingdom can’t run without everyone working together. Therefore everyone was important in some way or another. Tiarsus had been busy trying to get into the swing of things as an Emperor and trying to get the Vasta Kingdom in working order. He hadn’t came in and demanded all to bow down and kiss his feet though. No instead he worked with all. Saw what they needed and did his best to help. Though he didn’t roll over and show his belly like a submissive pup to every little whim of the people. Some things simply didn’t make sense and some requests simply disgusted him. A few had expected interest in forcing Wilders to conform to the wills of the kingdom just because said Wilder’s were wolves and the young Emperor wasn’t about to force anyone to be loyal to him. That wasn’t his style. As long as they followed the laws of the land while within the boundaries of Vasta he had no problem with them using the life of a Wilder. He knew he wasn’t born of this land so who was he to come and demand anything of them. He hadn’t been born a wolf, but rather an elf. Telling someone they have to swear allegiance to the kingdom of Vasta because they are a wolf-shifters was just stupid sounding when the ruler of the kingdom just happened to turn into a wolf when entering the land of Aspasia by random.

The very idea was pushed out of his head after having thought about it while following his cousin as he listened to the stranger. Listening to her he studied her words as he listened. “Pleasure to met you Lady Epoh.” He said with a gentle smile as he gave his cousin a curious look. One that says are you going to be polite and introduce yourself? If worse came to worse he could always do it for her, but preferred to give her the chance. After all was it really his place to force her to give her name to a stranger. Looking away from Allouetta and back at Epoh he nodded his head. “I apologize I do not have a map on my person.” He said lifting his arms slightly out and away from his body while still having them down showing that he had no maps. He did have his sword with him and pulled it out of the sleeve. “Of course there are weapons though. Many different types of swords, daggers, and bows. You know the normal things. This one is from my homeland of Ellannora. A land like your home in the way of it being not here.” Sighing talking about Ellennora not being here he put the sword back in it’s sleeve. Thinking about the magic he nodded his head softly thinking about that. “Magic? Yes there is magic here. Many different types. Though it doesn’t seem to come from potions or anything but each person, which is rather interesting when you think about it.” Explaining Katie thought about it. It was odd for he hadn’t been born with magic, but ever since they had arrived here he found he could do some strange stuff with ice. He hadn’t practiced it, but if he did he could probably do some amazing things.

Groaning inwardly at her cousin, the girl rolled her eyes as she caught his look. Now being the only one in her wolf form, she felt a bit left out, and regretted the fact that he had shown his elven form. She still felt safer as a wolf, but her cousin, as proud and pompous as he was had enough honor in him to protect her if need be.

Changing into her human form, her long auburn hair braided and adorned with jewelry, she rolled her eyes and grumbled. She acquiesced and introduced herself briefly. "I'm Alouetta, rightful heir of Ellenora, which you are right is not here, and likely the same with Nogard" she said rudely, spitting out the name of the other's homeland like it was a sour taste in her mouth, yet also unfamiliar to her.

Shutting her mouth again, hoping that he wouldn't retaliate to her words in front of this strange wolf tailed lady, she thought about how kindly he sounded. Of course, she saw it all as a front. Tiarsus, trying to save the day, but whoops, he didn't have a map. Too bad of him. With her luck he would invite this stranger into their home to look at a map. Gods knew he always tried to be "helpful" enough. She was still waiting for him to bring up all the good he did, and make it so others would need to serve him because they were indebted to him. No one was ever the way they seemed even nice people. Even her well-intentioned father who would let the soldiers from her homeland rape her in exchange for their help.

As Tiarsus finally moved to her questions about magic and weapons, the girl felt a bolt of envy crash through her. He claimed he had magic, but again that was one way he was "better" than her. So far she had nothing no glimpses of magic and it made her feel jealous and weak. She was the rightful heir of Ellenora. She should have been imbued magic upon arrival to this land, but no, that's not how things worked apparently. At this point it was as if life thought her a jester in a circus. She was a joke and a big one at that.

"He means you only get magic if you're lucky. Somehow they decided to skip me." She said rudely. Turning away from the glare she expected to receive. Hopefully he wouldn't slap her or something. Even for her, she was being quite rude.
