The forest was quiet as the moonwashed maiden padded down a well-traveled path. The female was on one of her normal herb gathering trips to the Herbalist's Avalon. Her brother had decided not to argue with her about going alone as his sister was very independent and wouldn't tolerate being treated like a cripple. The darkling had opted to go check his traps and Avinalora knew that he would check back on her soon because he worried about her safety. The Pollux often snorted at this. She would hear anyone coming towards her and she would be able to find her way back since she had made this journey before. If she was confronted by a hostile creature, which Avinalora doubted would happen, after all they were on an island and there was a slim chance something like a bear or cougar would not be detected. Still, the healer kept her ears pricked.

The silver vixen's pace was slow due to having short strides and her handicapped leg. She briefly considered shifting into Lupus so that she could get there faster as the she-jackal would be able to run quickly on her four, well three legs. She decided against the shifting since she would have a hard time carrying her clothes and satchel in such a small shape. The ivory jackal didn't really consider the option of Secui as the female had never really taken the Halfling form. She didn't know how it would look and preferred she speed over strength.

The ravenette kept on walking in her bipedal form. This was the reason she had set out in the morning so that she didn't have to rush. The silver-furred Luperci had always been an early riser so going out at this hour was no problem. She then started to hum one of the songs that floated around in her head. She didn't want to wake anyone up at such an early hour. Avinalora could tell that she was almost to the Avalon as the wind started to blow towards her, bringing the pungent scent of herbs. A grin pulled at the edges of the mist-hued girl's maw as she got closer.

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong
Optime | Herbalist’s Avalon

This looked lonely, hope you don’t mind me (and my giant post)! Skana’s a medic too, so I figured it’d be good if they met! :)

It had been a while since the mother had been able to do something without one or both of her children wanting to tag along. They were to spend time with their father that day though, learning some more Dutch or perhaps being familiarized with fighting with their uncle—her brother’s—help. This meant that the Cygnus was free to do as she pleased for the day. No birds, no children, no boys to fret and fuss over. She could go and do whatever she wanted.


She’d set off early towards the Avalon, a treasure trove for any and all that had an interest in the medical field. Despite her being largely free of her usual responsibilities, her mind never really left “work.” It would have been a waste to not visit the site that was packed with herbs of all types, particularly when the air was still relatively cool and the sun had yet to dry up the morning dew. As well, perusing through the various plants would be less tedious now when the sun wasn’t constantly beaming down onto one’s coat. Though the medic had visited the site a few weeks prior, there were bound to be more herbs that were ready and mature enough for collecting this time around as there had been during the previous venture with her daughter and Merlin. Timing was everything, and the stores would need to be stocked come winter time.


Skana leisurely picked her way through the forest. She wasn’t in any true rush to get to the location, knowing full well that it wouldn’t be going anywhere. A distinctly foreign scent reached her nostrils as she drew closer and closer to the Avalon though, and the she-wolf found her pace altering to intersect their path. She’d heard that there were a few newcomers to the Shores. Perhaps this was one of them.


It wasn’t long before she found the source of the new smell. A mixture of light, monochrome hues, the Luperci stood out against the colorful world around her. There was also the matter that she was rather tiny when compared to the silver she-wolf. Her dimensions reminded Skana of that of a fox; slender face, longer ears, small and lithe bone structure. Even covered with clothing, it was obvious that the stranger was not built like the coyotes, dogs, or other wolves Skana was used to seeing.


“Headed to the Avalon?” The Cygnus hailed over the distance in a friendly tone. She drew closer to the limping female, taking care to make sure she gave the appearance of an approaching ally as to not spook the stranger. Even though her scent was new to Skana, she could already smell hints of the pack already becoming woven into it. The one before her was likely one of the new Polluxes to join the ranks. Skana adjusted her own satchel, slowing her longer strides as she came within a good conversational length between them.


“I’m Skana Creo, Cygnus,” she introduced after a beat with a polite dip of her head.

Avinalora
"Can we create something beautiful and destroy it?
Nobody knows I dream about it, this is my imagination. - Disasterology"
Optime | Morning, Early August | Kingsweald
Sorry I took so long to reply! *Desperately try's to make post longer and not use the same word over and over*
WORD COUNT

The moon-washed maiden's ears pricked as she heard someone approaching her. Her nostrils flared as she carefully picked up the scent. She could detect the scent of a Luperci, earthy smells, pine, and herbs. She could also smell about four different scents on the wolf and birds. Avinalora had very keen senses due to her lack of vision and even as a yearling, she was able to warn her mother of incoming patients as they neared the den.

She turned around and stopped walking as she heard a voice call out a question. Was she going to the Avalon? A brief wave of anxiety passed over the heterochromia-eyed girl. She often didn't initiated conversations with others unless Jarix was around because he was her eyes. She couldn't really make out expressions because of her horrible vison and the vixen didn't want to come off as weak though her appearance often screamed it. She took a deep breath to calm her racing thoughts. "I'll be fine. I'll be fine." She recited to herself and then decided to answer the question.

"Yes." The silver-hued female replied in a quiet and polite tone. Unlike most instances, she didn't use the sarcastic voice that was normal for her meeting strangers but she could guess that the approaching wolf was a healer, and in Avinalora's book, healers already earned her respect for all the things they do.

As the female got closer, the ivory medic could see more details. The woman was tall with grey fur of different hues and brown markings. She also had blue eyes that Avinalora thought was quite pretty. The female also seemed to have wrappings on her hand which the healer was intrigued by. Had she been injured? Did she wear it for some reason?

The raven-haired girl was pulled out of her thoughts by an introduction. The woman stated her name as Skana Creo, a Cygnus. She noticed that many around here had last names that Jarix and she didn't have but she put that thought at the back of her mind since it wasn't needed at the moment. Skana Creo seemed like a nice name and it rolled of the tongue. The off-white female pondered what a "Cygnus" was. She had already learned of her rank, a Pollux which basically a newcomer. Was a Cygnus higher up than a Pollux? Since Skana smelled much like Midnight Shores, she could guess that the Cygnus had been a member for a long time. Then, the girl remembered to answer the Creo woman's question.

"I'm Avinalora, a Pollux." She replied and made a respectful nod of her head. She was unsure of how much acknowledgment of one's rank she would have to do but without even thinking, the foxlike Luperci started to submit. Her large ears lowered an inch or two, and her bottlebrush tail tucked a little between her legs.

If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong
Sorry for the wait!

The answer she received was simple and to the point, though, there was an obviously polite edge to it. Still, it was spoken softly when there was no reason—that Skana could see—for it. Had she scared the smaller female, or had her inquiry been cause for shy admission? Skana couldn’t be certain. She’d never met the Pollux before, and couldn’t attest to the reason behind any of it. At the very least, it seemed the long-eared hybrid had some manners to her, which boded well for a first impression.


Skana’s introduction was followed by a short pause as it seemed the other was considering something. It made the Creo wonder if, perhaps, the hybrid hadn’t been fully indoctrinated just yet. It was the only reason Skana could come up with, other than maybe the smaller woman was just processing the information that had been offered to her. There hadn’t been a look of recognition on her face, so that had ruled out the Pollux from having heard of Skana from somewhere.


After a beat, the female offered her name, and Skana nodded acceptingly, “A pleasure to meet you, Avinalora.” The Creo didn’t feel the need to point out that she had already had a strong assumption of what Avinalora’s rank would have been. It was neither here nor there.


When the raven-haired female began to show submission, Skana’s hands rose and she shook her head, gesturing that the actions weren’t necessary. “No, no! You don’t need to do that. Just relax and be yourself.” Within reason, but, she was sure that went without saying.


“How do you like the pack so far?” She inquired, wanting to allow for Avinalora to be comfortable with her presence. The Cygnus gestured for the two of them to move along, directing their path so that it continued towards the Avalon. “You’re a healer as well, I assume?” She added after a moment. There were few that would have cared to go to such a hidden Eden, and fewer still that would have picked up on its value so quickly. To any other, the location would have just been a smelly opening in the middle of the forest. To a medic, it was a godsend.

Avinalora
"Let the leaves fall off in the summer and let December glow in flames"
Word Count: 388

OOC: Optime | Morning, Early August | Kingsweald

Hover over what Tyler says to see what it means

The vixen's ears started to rise and her bushy tail started to sway slightly behind her. Why did I even do that? She asked herself. The only time she acted submissively was towards Esmeralda when she had joined, but since then she hadn't had much interaction with other people. The former loner had never been a pack member prior to joining Midnight Shores so how did those submission rituals come easily towards her?

Then, Skana inquired of how she was liking the pack so far. Avinalora took a moment to reflect on the question. She felt more secure knowing that she was on an island with a pack. The Pollux also liked having a purpose now. She was a healer and she could use her wares for something else other than trading. "I feel more secure here and I now have a purpose." The ravenette responded. Then she saw the Cygnus starting to walk and she followed, trying to keep pace with the taller female.

The foxlike female's head turned towards the Creo woman as she asked if she was a healer. She nodded quickly. And then a loud and familiar cry made her look up. "Excuse me." She said to the medic before rummaging through her satchel and yanking out a piece of leather. Securing it around her forearm with the buckles she raised her arm expectantly. A large barn owl descended from the trees and alighted down on her arm. The owl hooted a greeting before he continued in very accented high-speech.

Jaw-yeex sawnt mi tuu cheek awn yuu Tyler reported. Most would find it hard to understand him but the silver she-jackal had no trouble understanding the message.

"Not to be rude, but what is Onyx up to now?" The moon-washed maiden asked. Normally, her crepuscular companion would send the corvus to check on her because the owl would be hunting.

"Roy-vin heyl-peeng Jaw-yeex. Jaw-yeex sawnt mi The tyto replied and then noticed the female. He squinted at her before her spoke. "Hoo aw yuu?"

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong

WORD COUNT
649

Skana offered a nod to the Pollux’s feelings about the pack thus far. “I’m happy to hear that.” It had been how she’d felt when she’d returned to a pack environment. Of course, she’d had the benefit of being on the larger side of most canines, as well as the added protection of three large wolf-dominate males with her. Not many would consider harassing such a group. Avinalora though, she was small and appeared to have a bad leg. Skana hadn’t seen any of the companions that were rumored to have arrived with her, but, from what little she did know, the Pollux’s male Luperci companion wasn’t said to be very large either. “It helps to have something to do other than constantly worrying about when your next meal is or having to watch your back all the time,” she continued as they strode along.


She tried to keep her pace slow, but, only marginally so. She knew that her longer strides would be hard to keep up with, but, by going at an aching slow pace, she risked insulting the younger Midnighter’s pride. Their relationship thus far was fairly new, and Skana didn’t want to cause tension so soon after officially meeting the Pollux.


They hadn’t gotten far when a bird-like screech suddenly sounded in the air. Skana’s onyx ears flickered, and her head turned sharply. She knew the sound to be an owl, as she had one of her own, but, she also knew it to not be her Thanos. Though similar, it had its differences. Avinalora distracted her from searching the skies for the nocturnal raptor. The raven-haired female pulled on something that reminded her of a bracer, and, not moments after the leather piece was applied, an owl came down to perch on it.


It was a pretty thing, its face a beautiful ivory hue. Its facial disk reminded the Cygnus of the moon, pristine and so well defined against the rest of its plumage. The High Speech that poured from the owl’s vocal chords was understandable, though only just barely. The words were stretched and butchered, and took a few seconds before they could be processed and deciphered. Thanos’ speech and the two shrikes’ were cut and formed in similar ways that their vocal chords could allow. So, it wasn’t a large stretch for Skana, but, it was by no means clear-as-day for her ears either.


Avinalora engaged in conversation with the owl, throwing in a name that Skana could only assume was one of the Pollux’s other companions. The owl continued to repeat one word, “Jaw-yeex,” and the Creo woman couldn’t help but to wonder if it was the name of the Luperci that had accompanied Avinalora, or one of her other friends.


When the conversation turned to Skana, the Cygnus introduced herself a second time, her words short and to the point, “Skana Creo.” The narrowed eyes weren’t something new to her. Thanos had a bad habit of being protective of her, and, thus, often came off as rude or hostile to individuals he did not know. This owl was likely the same; loyal to Avinalora. The silver she-wolf made mental note to warn Thanos of this new owl’s presence on the island when she returned home. The last thing she needed was for her great horned owl to attack the poor thing.


Her eyes turned to Avinalora and gestured with a jut of her chin out to the part of the island away from the Avalon. “If you’re needed elsewhere, Avinalora, you can go. I’ll be fine going to the Avalon by myself,” she offered, not sure if this business with this “Jaw-yeex” individual was something that needed the Pollux’s immediate attention.

Avinalora
"Touch your feathers to the breeze
And leave the ground".

Avinalora nodded in response to what Skana had said earlier. Even though the group had come during the summer months in 'Souls and finding a meal wasn't that hard as the moon-washed maiden had some of her diet supplemented by greens but wondered what would happen in the winter when plants and prey were hard to find. She agreed with not having to always watch her back as the small Luperci would make an easy prey for any predator.

The vixen was grateful when the Creo woman had slowed her pace slightly as her long strides made it hard for the petite and slightly disabled female. She hoped that the female had slowed her pace because of the jackal's short stature and hoped that she didn't notice that she didn't even try to speed walk so that she could keep up.

The healer was surprised when the Cygnus seemed to slightly recognize Tyler's call. Did she have an owl, too? She did recall a scenting something similar to the barn owl on her. She would remind herself to tell the Tyto about another owl on the Shores. The she-jackal glanced at the woman during the conversation to see if she understood Tyler's heavily accented speech. Skana wasn't unsettled by the raptor squinting at her and asking her who she was and answered the question calmly. Was she a ird handler? A falconer?

Hearing the medic's offer, the foxlike female shook her head and answered, "Jarix, my brother is just checking on me like he always does when I'm herb gathering." The darkling was often worried about his sister which the Pollux often waved off. They were on an island with many others living there. He probably thinks I'll somehow wander off a cliff she thought before raising the arm that her owl friend perched on. "Tell him that I haven't wandered off a cliff yet." She instructed before letting the bird take flight.

It seemed that Avinalora picked up on Skana’s confusion on who this “Jaw-yeex” individual was. The small woman offered a translation of what the mysterious word was. It seemed the owl had been intending to say Jarix, who apparently was the girl’s sibling. “Mmm,” Skana hummed in newfound understanding. The tidbit of information reminded the Creo much of her own relationship with her brother during their early years. Of course, back then, she hadn’t been as involved in the medicinal field as she was now.


She watched as the Pollux dismissed her companion, and the owl silently took the skies once more. “What does your brother do?” She inquired curiously. She hadn’t been there when the two of them had been accepted into the pack; she had only heard from word of mouth afterwards that there were new members within the pack ranks, and to be aware so as to not accidentally mistake them for intruders and try to chase them out or attack them.


The Cygnus gestured for them to continue their journey to the Avalon with a tilt of her head. Skana set their pace once more, slow and steady. The little Eden wasn’t going anywhere, and it was unlikely that anyone else would beat them to it when it was still so early in the morning. Not that it would have mattered if someone did though. The herbs and other flora that grew there were free for all of the pack to use.


As the duo drew ever closer to the clearing, Skana couldn’t help but to ask another question as she tried to get to know her new packmate. “How long have you been a healer?” The earlier inquiry had been lost with the arrival of the owl, so, the Creo saw no harm in rephrasing and repeating it. It had been a little less than a year since Skana had been in the same pack as another that shared her interests in the art. It felt nice to think that, once more, she might have someone else to bounce medical ideas off of rather than relying on her books and trial-and-errors alone.


When they finally arrived at the edge of the abundant clearing, Skana halted and looked down to the Pollux. “Here we are,” she announced. The whole area was full of a variety of plants, colors, and smells. The Cygnus had ventured there a few times prior to collect as the season went by, so, she had a general idea of where everything was. Skana began to unfasten the buckles on her satchel with the intent to retrieve some of the pouches she had brought along with her for foraging.


“Are you looking for anything in particular, Avinalora?” Most of Skana’s stock ended up in the pack’s storage—only ending up in hers if the item was dangerous or the pack’s stock was full—but, if the raven-haired girl had a certain plant in mind, the medic didn’t mind helping.

Avinalora
"Stay for the night, I can show you what my dreams are made of"



Avinalora was brought out of staring at the sky by Skana's question. What does her brother, Jarix do? She took a moment to think about what else her brother did other than trapping. She remembered the pair of tomahawks he had as family heirlooms. The vixen didn't know if he ever used them as the darkling only handled them during maintenance and sometimes when they were traveling but she didn't know if he practiced with them.

"Jarix usually does most of the hunting with his traps but I know that he has brought down deer before in a feral form." The moon-washed maiden responded and then added, "He also protects us, he can fight." She decided to add that tidbit of information so that the Cygnus knew about the Caelum's other skill. She had seen him fight before, both in four-legged and two-legged forms. One was against a coyote thief, the warrior had fought the male with some good hand-to-hand techniques that he had learned. And then there was another Luperci who had threatened the pair before.

As the Creo woman quickened her pace, the healer could smell the scent of herbs getting stronger. She knew that they were nearing the Avalon and she was excited to se this treasure trove of herbs. Without realizing it, she had already gotten out her mother's journal out. The medic often had a hard time reading, but luckily her mother was a gifted artist and her journal was neatly organized with detailed information on the herb as well as a beautifully drawn representation.

The silver fox was pulled out of another train of thoughts when her packmate inquired of how long she had been a healer. She didn't really know how long she had actually been one since from the moment she had opened her eyes she was taught about the names of herbs and once she had shifted, her training had accelerated. She wasn't fully educated on all aspects of healing, mostly due to her handicaps. She couldn't sew up a wound or set bones and fix dislocated bones. Most of her skill was in herbs, finding them and using them but her ability to recognized illnesses was limited to book and oral knowledge.

"As soon as I opened my eyes, I was learning about medicine. Most of my knowledge is on herbs. I can't really sew wounds or set broken bones or fix dislocated limbs, and my ability recognizing illnesses is limited to things that I've read or heard." She felt that it was important to tell her fellow healer about her weaknesses in healing so that her limits were known. She hoped that she could perhaps learn from the she-wolf, and while she doubted it, the woman could learn from her.

Finally, the pair arrived at a clearing that was dotted with all sorts of flora. The ivory jackal immediatly had her mother's book in her hand and started flipping through it while taking in the scents of the clearing. Her sense of smell was the best tool to use when she was looking for herbs. The she-jackal turned to the medic and asked, "Mind if I excuse myself for a moment?" She wanted to shift into her Lupus form so that herb gathering would be much easier. Also, she didn't want to look stupid or blind if she stepped on an herb right in front of her.

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong

WORD COUNT
663

Skana’s brows rose at the information Avinalora provided about her sibling. “Really? He must be quite skilled.” Perhaps this Jarix individual was larger than she’d thought, either that, or there were factors that the Creo was not privy to. To take down a deer in one of their four-legged forms? The last she’d heard, the two newcomers were on the small side. The feat would have been impossible if not for the help of an outside factor, such as illness, injury, or, the use of a trap, which this male seemed to be skilled in.


Avinalora mentioned her brother being the protector of the group, and Skana smiled fondly as she was reminded of her own sibling once more. “That’s what brothers are for,” she commented with a nod of approval. Vepar had always been the protector of her own little group. He could fight with the best of them, and he knew it. It was why he had wordlessly taken up the mantle of being the group’s “protector.”


As they neared the Avalon’s location, the small woman suddenly pulled out a journal of some sort. The Cygnus’ onyx ears flickered forward with interest, curious as to what importance the book might have. Was it like her own field guide book taken from Anathema’s libraries so many moons ago? Or was it a personal one? Perhaps, later, she would find a good time to answer her curiosity.


To her question about the Pollux’s experience, Skana was pleased to learn that Avinalora seemed to be as fluent in the field as she was. She nodded sagely, impressed that the younger woman was confident enough to reveal her shortcomings. It showed a mind that was willing to learn as well as a personality that wouldn’t let her ego get in the way of a job. “I’ve only ever known of one individual that could set bones,” Skana revealed, wanting the Pollux to understand that the skillset was not something easily obtained or mastered. She paused for a moment before she offered the smaller female a friendly smile, “I have a friend that knows how to fix dislocated limbs, and, I could teach you how to close wounds, if you wanted? With your small hands, I’m sure you’ll be able to master the art with ease.”


Skana let her eyes move back to the path before them. “As for the rest, perhaps we could compare notes sometime? I’ve scavenged a few books over the years, and have been taught many things from other healers. I’m sure we could learn a lot from our shared knowledge.” It was the only way a healer could get better in their profession as far as she was concerned. Practice and sharing techniques and information. Bridget, Lyserg, Veri, and Ciellen had been of great help in expanding the Creo’s own expertise in the medical field.


It amused the Cygnus to see the monochrome Pollux look so eager and excited to be at the Avalon. The only other individual that had shared her appreciation for the medicinal wonderland had been her own daughter.


Once more, her question seemed to have been lost on the younger woman, perhaps out of Avinalora’s excitement or perhaps out of an easily distracted mind, Skana wasn’t sure. “Sure, go ahead,” Skana replied when Avinalora asked to excuse herself. The Pollux shifted down, and the Cygnus strode forward toward the now even smaller Luperci.


“Do you want me to hold onto your book for you?” Skana asked politely. It would be hard to use the item without running the risk of destroying it with only a snout and paws to flip pages. “Are you looking for anything in particular?” The Creo repeated, hoping to gain an answer this time. If not, the Cygnus would simply go about collecting the herbs she knew the pack or herself needed for their stores.




Tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?

Avinalora
"Kerosene hearts carry the name that my father gave me
And take the face of the wolf
"
Optime | Morning, Early August | Kingsweald
Small question, when do I start referring Avinalora as a Spica?
Also, I like your new icon!

Long post, much muse
WORD COUNT
806

Avinalora's large ears twitched as she heard Skana's comment about Jarix. He was quite fast and she remembered her brother telling her that he had managed to sneak up on it at night or something. He was in secui form and was quite large for a jackal. "Well, Jarix is about the size of a coyote and I think he's a bit shorter than you when he's on two legs." She said and then added, "He also brought down the deer in his Secui form." Most assumed that jackals were small creatures but her brother could easily pass for a coyote in any form. He was quite large in his Halfling form, easily three times her height when she was in Lupus.

The vixen nodded with a slight shrug. She guessed that the Cygnus had a brother and probably knew what it was like. The coal-coated male seemed overbearing at times and slightly paranoid. He that she had lasted for a month alone before finding him caught in a trap and it was common knowledge that she could forage, scavenge for food, and was very fast in her Lupus form but he seemed to forget that she could fend for herself.

The silver fox looked back at the medic as she told her that not many could set bones. She remembered that her mother could set bones but didn't teach her to. Her attention was piqued when she was told that Skana had a friend who could fix dislocated limbs. A slight frown pulled at the she-jackal's lips when the Creo offered to teach her how to sew wounds. She remembered that her mother told her to make sure that any healer she worked with knew all of her strengths and weaknesses, and then meant her vision.

"I can't learn how to sew wounds." The healer said with a shake of her head. It would be nearly impossible for her to hold her head close enough to a wound to sew it correctly. And then she decided to tell her secret. "I can't see out of my left eye," She gestured to the curtain of hair over her left eye. "And the vision from my right eye is very blurry except for things right in front of me. I also struggle doing things such as reading and sewing because I have to hold my face close and it gives me headaches when I focus on something for too long." She deadpanned. And then she gave an answer to the last question in the form of a nod.

Once the silver-furred woman gave her the go-ahead, the foxlike Luperci walked behind a tree and then took off the items she had on her as well as yanked of the hair tie. Then, she started to shift. Her body became smaller, limbs shortened, her hair disappeared, and so did her hands. Soon she was in her tiny lupus form. The moon-washed maiden made a mental note to come back her items later and grabbed her journal out of the satchel. Her mother often carried the book around, even in her feral forms and had attached a convenient leather strap for carrying the book and the pages were easy to turn without hands.

The silver fox padded out from behind the tree at a quick trot with the book's handle in her jaws. Her Lupus form could have been easily mistaken for a miniature, weird-colored fox because of her large bottlebrush tail, foxlike snout and build, and her small size. The only part that set her apart from the vulpine creatures was the darker grizzled saddle that stretched across her neck and back as well as over her tail and ended with a white tip. The jackal mutt was still a bit shorter than most of her species and she noticed that her shoulders barely passed Skana's ankles. The Midnighter held her left hind leg off the ground an walked on three legs. This wasn't much of a problem for her because without the lame leg she could run quite fast though her eyesight became a problem while darting through forests. She could see the trunks, but skinnier trees were lost in the forest blurs as well as anything she could trip over such as roots and stones. But after having run into more trees than she could count and falling head over tail multiple times, she learned to leap quickly back to her feet and keep on going.

She shook her head when the Cygnus offered to carry the book. She carefully set the journal down before answering. "My mother used to carry this around when she was in a four-legged form and made it easy to use without hands."

Hearing the question, the argent female shook her head. "I'm just seeing what kinds of herbs are here."

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong
Sorry for this horribly late reply >___< I’m trying to catch up on all of my characters! Wasn’t sure where you wanted to go with this/if you wanted to continue this?

When Avinalora elaborated about her sibling’s size and the circumstances around the event, Skana had to mentally backtrack what she had said. Had her words come off as condescending? Had there been a slip in her facial expression that might have made Avinalora think she didn’t believe her? She worried she might have offended the Pollux somehow without even realizing it. It would have been poor of her to make the jackal think she thought so little of the new arrivals.


In the end, she settled with an amused hum and continuing from her previous comment, “Perhaps he’d like to go on a hunt with my brother and my husband one of these days. He sounds like he’s a fine hunter.”


When the young woman denied Skana teaching her to sew, the Cygnus gave her a concerned look. She can’t or she won’t, was the question that spurred from the Pollux’s comment. Anyone could do anything that they put their mind to, and Skana was about to offer a few words to encourage this. Her words died on her tongue though as Avinalora continued, revealing exactly as to why she was incapable of learning such a task; she had bad vision. It was news to the Creo’s ears, and, a surprising admission for them being so unfamiliar with one another.


Deciding to not breech the subject—for, the lack of the girl’s tone in explaining it made it sound like it was a hard fact to deal with—Skana offered a quiet but acknowledging, “Ah.” Avinalora hadn’t shown to be the type to thrive on pity, so, the Cygnus offered none. The subject being what it was, the medic decided against dwelling on it for much longer either. “We all have our shortcomings, but, where we lack in some places, we excel in others. I’m sure your other senses have made up for what has been lost.” It was a common idea that those that lost one sense, gained exponentially in their other ones.


The healer noted with some interest how the monochrome jackal moved about by only using her three good legs. Idly, she considered Avinalora lucky to have joined Midnight Shores. In the wilds and alone, she would have been a target of many predators that would have seen her bad leg as a severe handicap. Skana was drawn from her thoughts when the young woman shook her head, refusing to part with the journal in her jaws. It appeared the item had some sort of sentimental value to it, and Skana smiled. “Alright, but, if you need any help, I’m here.”


She offered a nod in understanding when Avinalora revealed that she just wanted to browse at the available plants. The jackal must have only recently found the Avalon, or, had yet to discover what all it had to offer. “If you need hands, just say something,” she offered kindly before turning to let the Pollux peruse the flora. She didn’t want to get in Avinalora’s way. Skana moved towards a patch of left over Black Cohosh and began combing through it for choice plants.

Avinalora
"Now there's nothing to do, but scream at the drunken moon"

Avinalora didn't know how to respond to Skana's offer for Jarix. She didn't want to speak for her brother as she knew that he was as introverted as her, nor did she want to say no. She did think that perhaps the male wouldn't mind hunting with the Cygnus's brother and mate, although she didn't know the men that Jarix would be hunting with. So, the silver vixen decided to keep her response vague so that her brother wouldn't feel obligated to hunt with them and satisfy the glacier-eyed woman. "I'll talk to him about it." She responded with a shrug.

The monochrome jackal nodded as she heard what Skana said in response to her disability. She had simply offered the knowledge to make sure she knew what the Pollux was capable of. She probably surprised her but the woman didn't seem to take pity on her which she was thankful for and the fox nodded to the Creo's conjecture of her other senses strengthening. It was true, as the moon-washed maiden's hearing was incredibly keen as well as her sense of smell. She could tell if someone was a Luperci, their gender, their pack, and things that they had interacted with as well as detect them faster than her brother.

The she-jackal nodded towards the she-wolf before starting to browse through the herbs in the Avalon. She found managed to track down several familiar herbs in this garden and could already scent some that she had no name for. She discovered clubmoss, a plant that had many uses other than to stop bleeding. She also found comfrey which was used to treat injuries and marigold which she also used to treat wounds. She The healer also managed to find a patch of yarrow, one of the golden herbs with a wealth of uses. She took a moment to locate the pack's medic who was browsing through some plants that her mother had called "Black Snakeroot" .

Would this count for a medic co-rank?

Also, sorry for the late reply!

The task of finding the best plants amongst the bunch had been relatively easy for the Cygnus. It hadn’t been too long ago that she’d visited the area with her daughter and Merlin, and it had actually been the young Knight that had discovered the patch that Skana picking through at that moment. None of the flowers were in bloom anymore, and the plant was well on its way to being dormant once again with the approaching fall season. Still, there were plenty of good roots that could be used to make into medicinal drinks and mixes. It was the last good haul Skana would probably get from the patch until next spring.


She tucked the last of what she could glean into a now fat pouch. As she tied off the top, she let herself take a curious glance over to her smaller companion. She found the jackal amidst a fruitful area filled with a variety of healthy and vibrant herbs. The soft purples and bold yellow and oranges from the flowering plants nearby were as beautiful as they were tantalizing to collect for a medic. “Looks like you found one of the better parts of the Avalon,” Skana commented with a mirthful smile.


Skana rose to her feet and paced over to where the other medic was to get a closer look at what all Avinalora had found. Yarrow, comfrey, marigold, and even clubmoss—she realized, now that she could pick out the plant out amongst the regular, green vegetation that surrounded it. “You must have quite a nose,” she mused, genuinely impressed with what the Pollux had found. For someone being poor at sight, she sure had found quite a valuable spot.


Of the lot though, one grouping had caught her interest in particular. The Cygnus moved and crouched down next to the marigolds. “This is a rare find out here, and I’m surprised that there are so many healthy individuals here,” she mused as she reached out to gently stroke the brightly colored petals of the flowers. The pack—she had been told—had carried the plant back when they lived on the mainland, the move and the fall of the Red Star had significantly lessened their number of good plants.


“They’re older too, so, we can actually use them.” Skana procured another pouch from her satchel so that she could collect the flowers and their seeds. Her glacier gaze fell upon Avinalora with an appreciative gleam to them. “You did a good job finding these.” She meant every word of it.

Avinalora
"Everybody wants to change the world but no one wants to die"

Avinalora heard Skana's approach as she sniffed among the herbs. The Cygnus remarked on the find, saying that the Pollux had found the better parts of the Avalon. It wasn't hard for the vixen to find such herbs, as she had a powerful sense of smell, prefect for locating herbs. Some of the herbs she found were easy to scent, as the flowers had a beautiful aroma and the fox had simply followed the marigold.

If the healer could blush, she would have as she heard what the medic said about her nose and congratulated her on the find. The Luperci wouldn't have thought that finding such a plethora of plants would have been hard in this place but it was affected by the upcoming winter which meant that soon they would have to race autumn for her crop. The jackal cracked a small smile and said a soft "Thanks."

Then, the monochrome fox decided to show a bit of her herbalism knowledge to prove that she knew what she was doing. "The yarrow has a myriad of uses such as wound-dressing, fevers, infections, and much more." She said before moving on to the next plant. "Marigold is good for headaches, tooth swelling, and wounds." The she-jackal said as she flicked her tail towards the plant before she spoke about comferey. "Comfrey is used to treat stomach problems, inflammation of the joints, fractures, and wounds." She said before going on about how clubmoss was good for dressing wounds.

Then, a certain plant caught the moon-washed maiden's attention. It was a shrub with white and broad green leaves that were familiar to the female. "And that wide-leafed shrub over there is horse sorrel which is used to purify blood."

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong
Don’t worry about it<333 You waited plenty of times on me!


I made a list of some ideas for other plants to find to fill up the next few posts for you! If you just find one at a time, it should be enough to be spread across the posts and you’ll be done with this easy-peasy! :D


Dill, Chicory, Coneflower, Wild Mint

The younger woman looked almost modest as she offered a small word of gratitude for the Cygnus’ comment. It made Skana feel happy. Encouragement and support for one’s hard work and abilities would help them grow and continue their pursuits and studies. Ignoring or constantly finding faults would only break one down, and, likely, lose interest in what they were good at. Avinalora, the Creo was sure, had a lot of potential, especially if she could sniff out herbs as well as she had today.


Confidence seemed to suddenly swell from within the small, jackal-woman, as she suddenly began listing off the properties and uses for each of her finds. Skana’s smile widened into a grin as her glacier gaze drifted from one plant to another as Avinalora explained them. It seemed the young Pollux was very knowledgeable of just how valuable her find had been. Multiple medical uses from just a small group of herbs, it was a gold mine.


“Yarrow is also poisonous if ingested, and should only ever be used as a topical for that reason,” Skana added, much of her knowledge in the poison field having been garnered from her friend back in Anathema. “And Marigold also helps with inflammation as well, and can be used to help stomach aches. But, new shoots and leaves should be avoided, as they’re useless to us unless to make someone sick.” It was nice to have someone to talk to again about the medicinal herbs and their properties. Her daughter was too young to offer much to a conversation other than questions that would help her learn.


Something caught Avinalora’s attention, and the Cygnus’s gaze followed to the plant that she had indicated. Her brows rose with surprised interest. “Really?” The word fluctuated on her tongue, indicating that the plant and its usage was new to her. Her attention moved back to the Pollux. “It’s good we have you here,” she commented with a smile.


She made mental note to ask for more details about the plant later after the collection process was finished. Likely, the juices in the leaves had something in them that would help with such a unique and valuable property. “It sounds like that plant would be good to have in case someone was poisoned.” Already, dark thoughts had formed in the Cygnus’ mind on testing the plant and its effectiveness, and she knew just a place to find a rattlesnake and a good handful of rats…


Skana nodded for Avinalora to move on. “Think you could find some more good stuff? I’ll collect the ones here.” And the medic went to work, filling up multiple pouches with the various plants Avinalora had found, and took great care in taking as much of the horse sorrel as possible for testing purposes.

Avinalora nodded as Skana mentioned yarrow's other use as a topical. But then she remembered what her mother did once for someone who had ingested something poisonous. She had given him yarrow which made him throw up the nightshade. Did the Cygnus ever use yarrow for that purpose? The woman seemed to have knowledge on poisons which would explain why she knew the plant was dangerous. "My mother used yarrow to help someone if they ingested poison. It made them throw up the toxin." The silver vixen said.

The jackal didn't know that new shoots and leaves had that effect, but if "making them sick" means making them vomit, than it was as useful as yarrow. She would note that down in case someone was poisoned and the closest plant was marigold. The medic seemed to have a vast knowledge of harmful poisons seeing as she knew about marigold and yarrow's effects. The woman did seem like a warrior so it did make sense that she knew about toxicology since toxins could be used both offensively and defensively.

The glacier-eyed wolf seemed to be surprised about horse sorrel's use as a blood purifier which made the monochrome she-jackal happy to share her knowledge an if she could have blushed, she would have. Horse sorrel was a valuable plant to have because it would be good for if anyone needed their blood purified but the healer didn't understand what "blood purifying" meant. "I have used horse sorrel to remove rust from a wound but I've found that snakeroot and tormentil are good for extracting poison." The moon-washed maiden said with a slight shrug.

The ivory female nodded and began sniffing the air, trying to detect any herbs she could smell. Her sensitive nose detected a familiar scent and began following the aroma to it's source. She walked with her head low to the ground and soon her small shape disappeared in the tall plants.

SKANA CREO

Ah! That’s some pretty helpful stuff! :O
WORD COUNT

Skana offered an interested hum as Avinalora explained how her mother had used the poisonous plant once before. “I’ve never thought to use it that way,” she admitted honestly. There were a few other herbs of that she knew of that could induce vomiting without running the risk of actually poisoning the individual that had ingested it. In a pinch though, she could see where such knowledge could come in handy, and was sure to store the piece of information away anyway. It was yet another thing she would have to test to ensure not to overdose a potential patient and accidentally kill them.


The jackal female offered a few more bits of her knowledge to the Creo. Again, Skana found herself learning something new. Black cohosh, or, snakeroot, as Avinalora kept referring to it as, was something the Cygnus was familiar with, but, once again, not for the added properties that the Pollux claimed. It was good information to know, as it helped widened Skana’s knowledge of the pool of viable plants that could be used for a similar end mean. Having herbs with comparable properties allowed for a medic to make use of what was available and plentiful rather than constantly exhausting the same resource. As well, if a patient happened to have an allergic reaction, it helped to have other possibilities.


Tormentil, the last of the three plants Avinalora mentioned, was not one Skana had heard before. The Creo let it pass without inquiry though, and marked it off as something that had either been plentiful where the jackal had grown up, or, was simply a different name for a plant than Skana was used to. Her book at home had a variety of plants listed in it, so, it might be easier to look up the mysterious herb there than it would be to ask Avinalora to clarify and describe it.


When the Pollux nodded and went off to find more plants, Skana turned her attention to gathering the goods that had been pointed out. The bags she’d brought with her were getting full rather quickly, but, she wasn’t about to complain. Fat, plump bags meant better and fuller stocks, and, the pack could use all they could get before winter hit. Besides, if she ran out today, she could always return tomorrow or the next.


Once she had finished collecting enough materials, Skana stood up and searched for where the smaller female might have wandered off to. “Found anything?” She called.

"Nothing revives the past so completely as a smell that was once associated with it."



It didn't take Avinalora long to find another herb. Her sense of smell was one of the tools she used to find herbs since her eyesight was basically useless. If she had scented the plant before, she would remember it very well because of her sharp memory. The vixen's memory was also one of her valuable assets since it was hard for her to read without headaches so she had to read quickly and memorize it. Each of the beautiful drawings on the pages of her mother's journal were imprinted in her mind along with the uses and scent. The she-jackal was an herbalist in the truest sense, she had knowledge of would and illness treatment but she knew herbs best. She was also good at finding them and she sometimes experimented with new herbal mixtures to see what would work best. The healer was lucky that test subjects weren't hard to come across since a box trap worked quite nicely.

The moon-washed maiden soon found what she had smelled. A few tall plants with yellow flowers with large downy leaves. Still, she knew that she had to test it to see if she got the right one. To her, just because it smelled and looked like the herb she wanted, didn't mean it was the plant she wanted. The medic placed her paw on one of the soft leaves and pushed down, bruising the leaf. And then the strong scent of pine-sage filled her nostrils and then the identity of the plant was confirmed. The herb she had found was Arnica.

"Found something!" The moon-washed maiden called to Skana as she sat back on her haunches. Arnica was a useful herb to keep around because of the large amount of uses it had. But, all medical herbs had some sort of drawback to them. A lot of herbs should never be administered to pregnant women which was common knowledge for most healers. The fox briefly wondered if her mother had taken any sort of herb that had caused her to birth early. Being premature was a possible cause for her deformities. And then there was the long list of things females shouldn't take if they're carrying that would cause birth defects that her mother could have done. But then the jackal hybrid quickly abandoned the thought to explain the properties of the plant she had found.

"Arnica is used as an ointment to treat sore muscles, sprains and bruises because of it's anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and analgesic properties but it shouldn't be taken internally or used for long-term treatment." The monochrome fox explained to her colleague. The explaining part was something she had to do when herb gathering with her mother and the explanations had come back to her while gathering alongside another healer.

SKANA CREO
If I showed you my flaws, if I couldn't be strong
We can find one more plant and discuss its properties (split between two of your posts to make it easier?), and then this can count as a co-rank thread! :) You’ve already met the WC, so, the size of the post doesn’t really matter!

Small as Avinalora was, Skana swore it was like trying to keep track of her children when they had been pups. Her eyes moved towards the sound of Avinalora’s voice when she piped up, finding the small jackal near a group of yellow-flowered plants on the far side of the clearing. Skana picked her way over to the Pollux’s location, careful to not take a path that went through any of the remaining herbs in the Avalon. It wouldn’t do to have them carelessly crushed, particularly, if the pack wanted to continue using the little treasure trove for seasons to come.


Skana came to crouch down beside Avinalora, and she looked over the jackal’s find. The plants before them stood tall on their hairy, healthy, green stalks. Yellow flowers topped them, and their petals were long, thin, and jagged at their edges. The particular petals, the flower’s center, and the smell that wafted from them made their identification easy. It was Arnica, and yet another herb that the Cygnus would be collecting from the Avalon.


Avinalora spoke of her knowledge of the plant as she had before, and Skana was, once more, impressed by the young female’s knowledge. The back and forth they had reminded her of a mentor and an apprentice-like relationship. She smiled, quietly content that Midnight Shores had allowed the jackal amongst their ranks. Avinalora had proven herself quite a valuable asset with her expertise of herbs. Even if she couldn’t really provide much else in terms of labor or otherwise because of her condition, what was held away in that brain of hers easily made up for what she lacked.


“Very good,” Skana complimented with a nod. “With what you found earlier, we have the perfect antidote for if someone ingests this by accident.” It had worked out perfectly, this little Avalon and the nose of the jackal. The pair of medics had collected a good variety of herbs, and even some that could counteract the toxicity another might have if used improperly. It was exciting as it was comforting to know that the pack’s stores would be full and bountiful because of Avinalora’s help.


The Cygnus drew out another pouch to collect the Arnica. Her glacier gaze shifted to the jackal beside her. “I’ve about run out of bags for today. Think you can find one more plant for us with that nose of yours?” She asked, nodding to the rest of the clearing behind them.

Avinalora
"You're the antidote to everything except for me"
Lupus | Herbalist's Avalon | Day
WORD COUNT
236

Avinalora nodded at Skana's remark. Arnica was poisonous when ingested, but yarrow was something that could counteract it. Snakeroot and Tormentil were also good for poison and marigold, clubmoss, and comfery were used to treat physical injuries. They had found a mixture of herbs, all good for injuries, but they didn't find anything to treat illnesses. The treating of illness was an important part of a healer's job. They should find something for an illness and seeing as the medic had said that they were running out of space in her bag, she should try to find a medicine to treat sickness.

"Okay, Skana" The petite Luperci responded before sniffing the air. Her powerful nose could track down the smells that the plants emitted and she was good at tracking them down. The stronger the smell, the closer the target. It was quite simple to find what she needed since she knew the smell very well. The hybrid's sense memory was quite strong in the aroma department and it was hard for her to forget smell, especially those that she scented often.

The monochrome jackal tracked the aroma of the herb to a plant. It was another tall plants with a cluster of white flowers with leaves that clasped the stems. Boneset was the type of herb she had been looking for; an herb that treated illness and the plant in question treated fever and colds.

SKANA CREO

The little jackal was off and on the hunt again before she could even blink. Skana smiled, chuckling quietly to herself at the Pollux’s willingness and eagerness to work. Most young adults fancied a life full of fun, and usually had to be reminded—or forced—to work. Avinalora was the opposite. If only there were more Luperci that had a drive like hers. It would make things so much easier for pack life.


With Avinalora off sniffing for their next find, Skana busied herself with gathering the Arnica. Using a knife, she clipped the plant of the valuable pieces, taking care to gently store them in the leather pouch that had been allotted for them. It wouldn’t do to return to town with their collection crushed! What remained of the plant would eventually wither and die with its flower gone, but, at the very least, it would fertilize the soil and provide for the next growing season.


When she was finished, Skana set her satchel aside and went about sorting the collection of herbs she’d gathered thus far. She needed to arrange everything to fit inside the bag in a way that wouldn’t crush any of them on the journey home. With all that the pair had collected for the morning, the poor satchel was nearly at its limit in carrying capacity! After a bit of shuffling and shifting how the gathered plants were situated in their pouches, Skana managed to ensure that there was enough room for one more bag without worry of destroying her and Avianlora’s hard work.


By the time she was finished, it appeared that Avinalora had found their last find for the day. The silver she-wolf stood and made her way over to where the jackal was. “Astute of you,” Skana hummed, impressed, as she saw what the younger female had found. Of all the plants they had gathered, each one had had a different purpose, and, with this find, they had a good variety for the day’s haul; some for injuries, some for the stomach, others for toxins and anti-toxins, and, now, something for illnesses. “We’ll be in need of this come the colder months.”


She stooped down and began working on collecting the last of the herbs for their visit. When she was finished, she smiled proudly and appreciatively at Avinalora. “You did well today, Avinalora,” Skana complimented earnestly, “The next time I need to do some collecting, I’ll be sure to see if you’re around. You make the whole process a lot easier with that nose of yours.”


After making sure her appreciation for the jackal’s help was known, the Cygnus rose to her feet once more. She softly patted her full satched. “Well, it’s best I take these back before they start to wilt. You can come along if you’d like and I can show you where we keep them all?” The Creo offered, smiling at her helper.

Avinalora could see that Skana's satchel was quite full. They had collected so many herbs that would make quite the contribution to the herb stores of Midnight Shores. Fall was almost here, and after that was winter. A lot of things could happen in the winter months and they would need to be prepared for the upcoming months when herbs were scarce. The Pollux didn't know how many Midnighters there were but there would be some members would need more medical treatment than others.

The she-jackal smiled as the Cygnus praised her. She had helped a lot with her sense of smell and both healers had learned from each other. She knew that the she-wolf would teach her a lot, as well since the woman was older than her and probably knew more about the other aspects of the healing arts that the jackal medic wasn't familiar with. Injury treatment, poisons, and illness diagnosis were areas of medicine that she had not spent much time on and perhaps her colleague could shed some light on those subjects.

And then a familliar howl echoed through the Kingsweald. The moon-washed maiden's brother was calling her. She knew that it was time for her to go home. She gave a respectful nod towards the glacier-eyed wolf and said "I wish I could, but I have to go." The fox said and then added, "Maybe we can do it another time?"

And then once the female gave her reply, the monochrome fox loped away, happy with what she had accomplished. She had helped a fellow medic, met a new pack mate, and learned and taught a lot.
