Lady Luck never smiles

So lend your love to me, awhile

Do with me what you will

Break the spell take your fill

How long had it been since he had left home? It seemed to Drew that he had been gone for a very long time, probably longer than he actually had been. At least he had Lucille for company, the sweet-natured mare not the best conversationalist but considering their disparate speech levels, that was not surprising. ”Come on, girl.” He had decided to let her walk on a lead for the last day or so and she seemed to appreciate not having to haul him and his stuff around. She gave him a nuzzle as they walked towards the land that would hopefully be their new home.


He had spent most of his time in the previous human city of Chicago learning what he could about Souls and the various packs, when he wasn’t starting to learn to read and write. He shook his head, rueful that he only had the basics down. Hopefully he could find someone to teach him more. He had one book in his possession: a book about horses, especially their care and health. He was struggling to get through it but it was starting to give him a better sense of how to best care for and understand his horse.


But as for packs? The one that seemed to speak to him the most was called Mistfell Vale, though he wasn’t entirely sure why. Maybe it was the sense of home that everyone told him about or even their apparent value of loyalty, both of which he felt strongly about and that they were important. So here he was just outside their borders, sniffing simply to get a general sense of them. After a few moments of that, he sent out a howl to let the leaders know they had someone at their borders looking to join. Lucille snorted shortly in surprise at his not often used howl and he softly murmured to her, ”Easy, girl.” She calmed and the pair waited patiently for a leader or even a member of the pack to come, his posture relaxed and slightly submissive.

Welcome back Becca and welcome to the Vale.


Things were smoothing out, save for the one thing that was a constant strain of distance in Zuri's life. Callisto would likely stay that way for a long time, as neither side seemed willing to come together with the other in order to try and make an understanding. The albino woman should have probably been the one with enough reason to approach her growing adoptive daughter to explain to her why she had been so distant, but found it much better to just find other things to do when the girl was not around.

The pale woman had grown accustomed to finding herself along the borders. There were not many that seemed to take up the task of patrolling and making sure the borders were kept to standard. Precautions were set in motion since the kingdom had fell victim to an attack in the winter, but so far there had been no other cause for alarm. She had been smart enough to bring some kind of weapon along with her now, usually hidden underneath the curls of her dress. It was a bit harder for access, but stayed hidden enough.

Upright ear turned to the sound of the howl. It hadn't been too long ago that she had heard something like this come from another. The woman Kane had called for someone at the borders in order to see about joining the Vale, and this tone of summoning seemed to be something akin to that. Being the first to hear it, as far as she knew, she began to make her way towards the sound.

Zuri came upon someone on the back of a horse. It looked to be a male this time around. Brushing a few locks to the side of her head, the pale woman stepped forward, though keeping the shade of trees so she wouldn't have to deal with the spring sun, "These are the borders of Mistfell Vale. Who are you?"

OOC: Thanks! And sorry about the short reply.

There wasn’t too much of a wait before he heard and smelled the approach of someone from within the pack’s borders. Drew kept himself submissive and yet relaxed with Lucille deciding his shoulder was a good place to put her head. He gave a snort of amusement and gently shrugged her away, or tried to. She was generally malleable but when it came to her affections, she could be downright stubborn. He gave a mock huff of frustration but rubbed underneath her chin as the pair of them waited for the pack member to arrive, or rather he waited and she used him as a pillow.

He glanced up briefly when he could tell the canine had stopped before him, on their side of the border, and quickly sized her up before turning his attention back to ground, as was appropriate for a potential joiner hoping to join. She said that these were Mistfell Vale’s borders and asked him who he was. There was a briskness to her tone and yet he wasn’t insulted since he tended to be the same way. ”My name is Andrew Bancroft and I was hoping to join your pack.” Even as he finished speaking, Lucille gave a huff at not being introduced and he gave his horse a side glance. ”And this oddly pushy mare is Lucille.”

It's all good.


Zuri's gaze was quick to fall onto the male as he came more into her view. He had lowered himself into a somewhat submissive position, as most tended to do when they came seeking to join this kingdom. It was the natural order of things, and something that had her tail turning slightly upward to show her own dominance. She only broke her gaze aware from him for a brief moment to the horse, but it was then quick to come back to him.

The man had introduced himself as well as the horse, though it had been only after the mare had made a small noise at her lack of inclusion. Some animals were certainly smarter than one gave them credit for, though she could not imagine Tirion doing the same with her. She considered him, not appearing that he would be some kind of threat to the Vale. It seemed rare that the kingdom got anyone that seemed to be of that nature, though they were no stranger to those that would want to do them harm.

Brushing out a few ruffles in her dress, she addressed Andrew, "I am the Vale's Risegard, Zuri. I serve as a council member to our leader."

She paused for a moment. Sometimes it was easy to spot what some skills might be from items one carried or had wore along their bodies, though this one seemed different. Arms crossed gently, "Before I accept you, there are some things I need to know. What can you offer to the Vale if we let you stay, and where did you hear of us?" The second was not too much of a necessity, but one that the pale woman found interesting enough to ask. It was keen to know where word about them was spreading, and in what sort of light.

OOC: I realized I had him say his name was Alexander >.> Oops...But it is fixed now. WC: 301

IC: His greeter called herself Zuri and gave her rank, which meant little to him at the moment but she then explained that she was a council member to the pack’s leader. He inclined his head slightly in greeting.”It is good to meet you, Zuri.” He was polite, perhaps not the warmest but he was by no means cold in his greeting. He was mostly just a little reserved with those he did not know well.

Zuri then asked him about his skills he could offer to the betterment of the pack, a question which he knew was standard and he was prepared for. ”I grew up around horses, my father is a horse-breeder and so I know not only how to ride and care for horses, but training them as well. I am also skilled at leather-working and can speak and understand Low Speech, or at least the equine version of it.” He paused briefly as he considered if he should say more. ”My mother was an herbalist so I learned the basics of that, but I would consider myself a beginner in that. I also am learning to read and write.” He figured at least some of that would be useful to a pack, especially the skill with horses.

She had also asked him where he had learned about Souls and the pack, which was a little bit surprising. ”Before I headed here, I would bring horses to sell and trade for my father to a city humans called ‘Chicago’ and learned first of Souls. And there was also talk about this pack and it appealed to me more than any of the other packs I learned about.” Now he would wait to see if she approved of his answers and if so, wait for a leader to accept him.

Welcome again! I will have Vida get the offical joined post up for this thread and get you into the Vale.


Zuri had kept here eyes on the man, watching the way that he continued to hold him and any changes he might have made in his posture. He kept a level of respect with her, though that was probably just due to knowing who he was dealing with. He seemed to keep a relative neutral tone, nothing really worthy of causing too much attention, but something that she made a silent note of none the less.

The pale woman kept herself silent, letting the man answer her question. He seemed to carry a few similar skills as some of the others in the Vale. That wasn't to say that he wouldn't be useless here, but it gave her a way to see where he would fall into place. Horses and low speech made her think of Ezra, the two of them getting a chance to work together. His leather working and use of herbs would not only help with her trading, but would be something to serve as aiding others in this kingdom. Giving a nod, "I see. All of that will be welcome here in the Vale. I could even point you in the direction of those that share your skills."

Feeding her own curiosity, he had expanded upon how he had come to learn of the Vale. It was more interesting to her to know word about their kingdom had traveled so far. When she had first come here, she too had come on the basis of word of mouth, leading her to the Ravenking. She gave a nod of acknowledgement, "I see. Thank you for your information."

Zuri gave a small pause before moving her hand to motion for him to follow, "I see nothing wrong with allowing you to stay with us in the Vale. I'd be more than happy to show you were many of us have settled and I will inform our leader about you joining. Welcome to Mistfell Vale."

His eyes kept flicking up to watch her study him and Andrew had to wonder what exactly she thought of him. He didn’t think there was any reason for him to not be admitted into the pack considering he had done nothing improper, not that he was the type to do so anyways. His mother had taught him to at the very least be polite to others, even if he tended to take that to the extreme.

After he gave the rundown on what his skills were, even those that he was by no means terribly good at, the woman nodded at him. She seemed to somewhat approve of his skills, though he would be very surprised if his skills were unique. His guess about others having similar skills to him was proven correct when Zuri mentioned that not only were his skills useful to the pack but there were others that had the same skills. He nodded himself. ”It will be good to share tips and such with someone who knows some of the things I know, or to teach those that want to learn.” That was said with a slight smile curving his lips.

There was little to be added to his letting her know how he had learned both of Souls and Mistfell Vale. So he said nothing else about it. She simply thanked him for letting her know how far word about her home had gone and he inclined his head in silent recognition of her thanks. He was nothing if not polite, especially towards women and those above him in power.

He waited with slightly baited breath when he saw her pause, tensing just a little as he waited for her judgment of him and his usefulness to the pack. He relaxed when she gestured for him to follow and he gave a soft click to Lucille to follow, which she responded with another nudge, apparently glad to be moving again, even if it was for just a short distance. Her words of acceptance earned her a true, open smile from Drew, a rarity from him. ”I appreciate that, Zuri.” He was referring to both being accepted and the offer to show him a place to settle. ”Might there be a place close to the stables with room for my leatherwork?” Honestly, he really only needed a room for his personal stuff and a room for his leather-making. Or one large room for both could work too. He wasn’t all that picky.
