Perhaps changed most of all out of all of the packs is this place. It was stripped out of its forested home and now instead lays at the edge of an ocean. The vast sparkling eternity of the water lays to the south of the land, while the rest of the land is made of rocky outjuttings. Gone are the trees, and all that remains for greenery are the short shrubs that dot the paths in the rock, and the moss that grows thanks to the spray of the waves. Further toward the shore, barnacles are a plenty, and look to cut the pads of those who slip on the wet surface. These extend out into the water itself, and the tough land has multiple caverns scraped into it, providing ample dens for the wolves that live there. Depending on the tide, however, the lower caverns may flood, and the vicious swirling water may prove to be dangerous as there is a strong undertide ready to pull unsuspecting swimmers to their doom. Even the tide itself is powerful enough to push intruders against one cliff or another. The ocean does provide, however, plenty of food for those who brave the waters - there are many breeds of seals and sea lions, though the males that protect each of these are vicious and territorial. There are also turtles that come ashore to breed and to lay their eggs - both the adults and the eggs themselves can provide sustenance to the wolves. But they must take care - the water is deep enough to allow sharks to come to shore from the depths below. Those unwilling to venture the waves or wet their paws with the moist sand of the shore can find snakes and hares in the rocky outcroppings, but they must beware the Komodo dragon and other monitor lizards that perch upon the shore - they are swift and move in groups, not to mention they carry venom in their bite that causes immense pain, paralysis, and prevents blood clotting. This is not the land for the weak of heart or the weak at all really. This is Uyaraut - ‘The Diamond in the Rough’.


Don't Try to Hold Me Back

And I plan to be...

Summer offered to teach her how to swim and how to fish, but instead the pup strayed from the water's edge, not wanting anything to do with it other than to drink from it. Nzingha was a varg first and foremost, and her pads were meant to stay on the ground, and not to leave it. Wolves did not have wings - they were not meant to fly in the air. Just the same, they did not have fins and were not meant to be within the water. They were the rulers of the middle ground and not anything above or below the earth. I promise I'll keep you safe in the water, but if you'd rather not come in that's quite alright too, Nzingha. For a brief moment, a flash of anger crossed her visage, a comical sight indeed upon the pup's facade. "It isn't like I'm scared of the water or anything!" Her gaze averted and she inhaled sharply. Though she was still just a pup, she was prideful and hated to show any weaknesses aside from the ones that were obvious due to her size and age. With embarrassment and a show of apology, she slipped forward a single paw, letting it just touch the water's surface before withdrawing it back beneath her. Her gaze was drawn the to picturesque ripples that flowed on the glass from where she had touched it. They were so smooth, and perfect... and yet the motion had started from nothing. It was so unknown that it did indeed frighten her - the unknown was terrifying. "I just... don't think it is right. We are not of that world just as fish do not belong on land except when caught for a meal."

The eboness tried to hide her disgust at the thought of the flesh of fish. Shae had tried to feed it to her once and she had proceeded to retch, her stomach emptying itself upon the ground in front of them. It had been slimy, slippery... and the smell had lingered upon her flesh for days. It was one of the many things that she would not each - if it did not have four legs and a tail, she would not touch it - the pup was rather picky when it came to her meals.

After making it very clear that she had no interesting in entering the water, the pair left and Summer began to lead her deeper into the territory. Well this pack is mostly filled with thick trees and dense forest, but there are a few areas that aren’t like that. One of the clearings is where I hold pack meetings, I’ll show it you next. He paused briefly, and she caught his gaze turned upon her our of her periphery. So does this pack look similar to Moondown Shadows? Or is it a lot different? Nzingha shrugged - she had not really considered it. She was still rather young, and Shae had kept them in the cave to keep them safe and out of the pack's view. "There are trees, ground, and sky. It seems much the same to me." Within a view moments, they entered a clearing that looked very similar to the one that she had seen only a single time in Moondown Shadows. "Thank you for showing me this place. I shall remember it for future... meetings?" Nzingha had no notion of the word, as she had never attended a pack meeting. She knew what it meant, but could not understand what it was for. "So who else is here? Your family? Do I have a new mother too?"

OOC- Sorry this took so long :( :(
