Usually her patrols were uneventful. The Vale kept themselves to themselves and seldom did anyone venture near enough to the borders to peak Saga's interest. But the monotony of her daily routine was always bound to be broken up eventually and from afar a scent drifted over the misty plains. The Starkhelm diverted her course, skirting closer to the absolute edge that she usually would. She ran at speed and with ease, covering the ground with a hare-like pace that took her almost within sight of the great river that cleaved the Vale in two.
Soon, the sight of another, a loner, crept into view upon the horizon. Humanized and accompanied by a mare and foal, Saga came to a halt some distance away, reluctant to get too close to unfamiliar horses. A doggish bark filled the air as Saga greeted them, her tail flagging high, commanding respect. 'You're at the borders of Mistfell Vale. State your business.' It occurred to her that this was, more than likely, someone looking to be welcomed into the fold, but she treated the encounter as she would any other, with a level of command that instantly did away with folly.

Saga was glad to see this stranger gladly followed the right protocol for greeting her. It seemed to Saga (though she could have been entirely wrong) that while both Calia and Felix wielded the power that entitled them to see those lower than them bend at the knee, they seldom exercised it. The Starkhelm, however, young and proud, was prone to displays of seniority, though never without reason or in extreme. The D'Angelo inclined her head in response, happy enough to proceed now she was certain that Sedona would not prove herself to be a difficult member from the off.
She was glad too that her abruptness didn't seem off-putting to the horsewoman, for, on the off chance that this cheery thing was placed in her house, it was something she would have to grow accustomed to. In any case, Saga was about to start this process, as her reply to Sedona's words were simply, 'What skills?'
Abrupt, yes. But there was no sense in prolonging the circumstance of joining if someone was well suited.

He heard Saga's gentle call from near Winterwynd, and smiled inwardly. He set down his things, ushering out the door to heed her call; she was growing so rapidly, so much, and he had initially grappled with the idea that she should not take the title of Starkhelm in the first place. Was it too heavy for someone her age? But Saga seemed like the person who would find something heavy to bear regardless of who others saw her as - who was always carrying something, who always would be.
Her promotion gave her more joy than it did burden, he thought as he jogged towards the call.
He arrived quickly to find the young Starkhelm with another female - she was obviously mixed in her heritage, with wolf, coyote, and dog mixed evenly to form a brightly colored individual. She had with her a horse (they didn't have too many of those in the Vale right now). Two, rather - a young foal stood close to the two, and he wondered briefly if they were related in some way. He gazed curiously upon the stranger for a little too long before switching his gaze to Saga.
"Hello, Saga," he said brightly. "And stranger," he said, cocking his head to the other. "Saga, who could this be?" He guessed from her howl that she had spoken to the stranger, gauged her abilities, and in the coming minutes Felix found he was right.
He nodded as Saga gave a brief description of who the stranger claimed to be, nodding and interjecting 'ah's when appropriate. His gaze switched from the loner - Sedona - to the hawk in the tree, which he had glanced over at first. He gave an appreciative hum.
"I see," he said, clasping his hands together. "Thank you, Saga!" he chirped. He gave the animals another look - they seemed healthy, well-taken-care of. The horses were calm, simply watching the predators with little signs of nerves; signs of good training, he thought. "Yes, I think this will be good," he said, almost to himself.
"Sedona," he said, "Sedona, Sedona Whitesage! I am Felix, the Ravenking - I think your skills could be very useful here," he said, thinking of Calia's skills. Would she be glad to have another farmhand around? "Welcome to the Vale."
