The lobtster hybrid seemed to ignore my words and skidded to a stop infront of me, sweeping his tail and trying to take out my legs. I jumped and hooked my claws into his armored back, I was now riding his back and I had no idea on how to take him out.

ispiration came when I noticed a dart sticking out from his armored hide. I pulled the dart out and searched for a less armored place, hanging onto his mobile back with all my strength. I figured the side of his neck would be soft enough so I jabbed the dart into the area and lept off of the lobster hybrid's back, watching him when I landed to see if the dart worked. "Let's hope what I told you sinks in, these people you work for destroy people and families with the motive of wanting war machines.

The Soldier

I watched from a tree as the fighting broke out, I did  not get into the fight just yet for I was on a capture and assasinate mission, ki,ll the leader and all falls apart he thought as he watched, silent and unnoticed.

His opponent dodged the tail sweep and grabbed hold of his back, taking James off guard. He bucked and spun trying to shake the hybrid off, knowing he couldn't reach that far with his arms. A small needle-like pain erupted in the back of his neck, and he knew exactly what it was. He cursed under his breath as he tried to pluck the dart out, unsuccessfully. "Well, I'm a big guy and've taken alotta tranq darts over the years.. let's see how long I last.." James thought with a growl turning on the now what looked to be dragon hybrid. He seemed to be more chatty than necessary. James lunged to grab the hybrid's arm, throwing most of his own weight at his opponent. At the same time he tried to curl around the hybrid in an attempt to keep him from escaping.

The fishy hybrid, I think his name was James, lunged at me in such a way that I could not escape and he got a hold of my left arm in one of his claws. I grunted in slight pain from his grip. In slight desperation to escape his grip I cocked back my arm and delivered one, then two, and finally three sout blows to James's face.

Just after the blows I remembered how he had been underground so long and began to try channling my fire. From James's point of view it -if he even noticed after the blows I delt him- would look like I was coughing wierdly.

§ James §

James let out a "Hah!" of victory as he grabbed the hybrid's arm, only for that brief moment of victory to result in extreme pain erupting across his snout as the hybrid punched him smack in the face. He was overwhelmed with signals as well as pain from his sensitive snout, but honed his willpower in keeping a firm grip on the dragon hybrid. His opponent started to make a weird coughing noise, and at first James had no idea what was wrong with him. Then it clicked: Dragon hybrid. James seized his arm and twisted it around the hybrid's back, hoping to pin him and effectively evade his fire breath. James considered the consequences of just ripping up this hybrid, as he was starting to get a bit irritating. "Nice try, wyrm." He muttered, while at the same time thinking "In the name of all that is holy, don't tell me this guy's part owl or something."

James spun me around and pinned my arm painfully behind my back. I felt the fire coming and I needed to get it to get to hit this fish faced hybrid, I remembered the times I had found owl like feathers in my white mane that went down my back and took a "leap" of faith. "Not a Wyrm just a dragon" I repleid as I turn my head around, it was not a full 180, more like a 160 but it would work so I let a torrent of fire errupt from my mouth. I could barely tell if the fire hit James but from the heat I knew it would be painfull and blinding even if the fire did not hit him.

§ James §

Of course, with his luck, the hybrid was part owl. A feather flapped against James' face and before he could register it enough to react, his nose burned and his face felt hot with flame. He roared in pain and shoved the hybrid away from him, shaking his head and clutching his face. James was starting to wear down. He was tired, hurt, hungry (the smell of burning fish in the air didn't help anything) and also in pain. He kept his eyes closed, blinded by the sudden light. The tranq dart was starting to affect things, and he felt a little numb. He turned in the general direction of the hybrid, growling, but stood his ground. He honestly just wanted to sit down and eat something, but he didn't feel confident that the team would appreciate that much. He kept wary tabs on his opponent, although he was unsure of his exact location. His snout throbbed and felt burnt, and his eyes had still not recovered. Still, he wouldn't back down until he was killed, or passed out. James kept light on his feet, guard raised in anticipation of attackers.

James roared in pain and shoved me away; I rolled my shoulder to ease the pain and I watched James as he clutched his face and shook his head. I could tell I was wearing James down good, I don't want to hurt him any more. I watched as he braced for more attacks though I could tell I had messed his senses up with the blows and fire.

I straightened up and looked at him, "think about what I said, who trapped you underground? What good have they done for you beside let you live and guard their assets, you're in a poor shape, think" I urged him. Several more darts found their way to my scaled hide and and once again pulled them out but this time I pocketed them for future use.

Lucy and ???~

((Ahhh new posts. Lemme edit this really quick))

 

Lucy~

 

I saw Faolan battling a sort of Lobster hybrid, riding him like one would ride a wild hippocampus. I tucked in my wing and spiraled down, using the wind to speed up my decent. Suddenly, I frowned. 

 

'Hippocampus? As in the magical swimming horses?' I wondered to myself, trying to jumpstart the memory that had flitted through my mind. 

 

I was torn from my thoughts, however, by Faolan's words. I realized I was much closer to the ground than I originally thought, and snapped my wings open, digging my scaly reptilian feet into the ground to stop myself from skidding any further. The air was filled with the noise of chaos and destruction- a true battle if there ever was one. Darts still sang through the air, their noise only adding to the tension of the enviroment. It smelled of dirt and sweat, and a coppery smell that I realized was blood. Everything seemed blurry from kicked up dust and fast-moving individuals battling for their freedom- and for some, their lives. 

 

It was invigorating, and depressing. I had to help them. 

 

I dashed towards the lobster hyrbid currently looking burned and tired. A few hits and I could finish him off for Faolan. My claws found hold in his exoskeleton armor, and my wings flapped furiously as I managed to get the two of us several feet of the ground before I stopped, and let us drop. We slammed into the ground, and I felt winded from more energy spent. My reflective wings cast bits of light everywhere, like a shower of sparkles in the grim environment. Without bidding, my electric sword was in my hand again, ready to electrocute another victim. 

 

((Reminder that the sword doesn't cut, just shocks))

 

 

???~ 

 

The buzzing was finally lifting a bit, and I could think independently once more. I licked my cracked lips, tasting blood and discovering insect-like pincers protruding from the sides of my face. I briefly wondered what I looked like- it had been so long since I had access to a mirror. 

 

Mirror... Like the surface water, of the sea, rippling and glittering in the moonlight. I soon found myself deep within another memory. 

 

-Memory- 

((Optional to read, since it's not really important and was just fun to write. I did no research on Hippocampi and took plenty of liberties with the ocean and my char's ability to hold their breath))

 

The scaly green horse legs remained anchored in the sand as I stepped closer to the beast, afraid to look it directly in the eye. 

 

"Malachite! You came!" Shouted my winged friend, who rushed forward and instantly clung to the horse's wet neck and fin-like mane. 

 

I heard a rumbling sound as the fishy mammal(?) nuzzled the hybrid closer. 

 

"It's alright, she's the leader of the pod! I'm sure another will come soon." My best friend explained. It did nothing to sooth my nerves. 

 

"What did I say about meeting magical creatures in the dead of night?" I complained to the hybrid, finally closing the distance between us and laying my hand on the wet, green scales that covered the hippocampus' nose. 

 

And the dead of night it was. The moon shone around the area of one-thirty, lighting up a black sky along with dozens of twinkling stars. The waves crashed against the cliff nearby, and the more gentler tide lapped at our feet. It was peaceful and soothing, the best time for adventures like this. 

 

That, and mom was always asleep by now. 

 

"Awe, it's fun. You always have fun." My friend brushed off the comment lightly, scratching Malachite behind a translucent, fin-like ear. 

 

Suddenly, a second head reared out of the water with a mighty splash. Chatter filled the air- something crossed between a dolphin and a horse, which made sense. I froze, watching as the silhouette swam closer and anchored itself alongside Malachite. This Hippocampi was a ghostly grey, with mild seashell pink markings and fins. The newbie eagerly butted against my hand, and I willingly began to stroke her neck. 

 

"That's Rosie, She lets us ride her sometimes." My friend told me, nodding their head at the aquatic animal's back. 

 

We lapsed into silence, letting the crashing waves replace any awkwardness that could result from it. I grew more comfortable with Rosie, scratching behind her ears and tenderly rubbing her nose. I was happy with how things were, content to just get to know these creatures with my friend. However, that changed when Rosie suddenly whinnied and threw back her head. Startled, I backed away a step and froze, watching as the hippocampus hoisted herself onto shore and bit the fabric of my shirt, dragging me into the ocean with her. 

 

I screeched, freezing cold and clutching to Rosie for dear life as the hybrid on shore shouted at me to stay calm, that they were on their way. I knew it was at least a half lie- they couldn't fly very well and couldn't perform magic. Unless they managed to swim out to me, they would have to get help. Rosie performed an odd set of motions in the water that left me on her back, with my fingers clutching her fin-like mane. Before I knew it, we were underwater, speeding along like a bullet in a sudden current. Rosie's fish tail powerfully propelled us forward in strong strokes, and her front legs steered us out of harm's way. 

 

When I was in danger of running out of air, Rosie jetted upward, and suddenly we were in the air again, greeting by the silver moon and endless water as Rosie glided on... Wing? Fins? I didn't remember hippocampi having fins to glide above the water's surface with. We left ripples in out wake, and as I caught my breath, I suddenly realized how far away the beach was... And how free I felt. 

 

I started laughing uncontrollably, realizing how insane it was that I was riding a mythical water horse, almost two hours past midnight, with school in the morning. It was crazy, and funny in an insane sort of way. And amazing. Can't forget amazing. I whooped with joy, and noticed we were nearing the surface of the waves again. I took a deep breath as we went down under, this time admiring the sights as we bolted forward. 

 

Schools of colorful fish darted by, followed by an even larger fish attempting to catch a snack. Up ahead, a great white shark swam peacefully, and Rosie realized the potential danger and swerved around him. There was seaweed, coral, and a variety of creatures I couldn't even begin to name. About two minutes later, we resurfaced, and I took large gasps of air to sooth my burning lungs. 

 

Out of the blue (literally, out of the blue ocean), Malachite suddenly burst forth, spraying us with more salty water and giving me a scare. However, when I saw the soaked form of my best friend grinning at me, I gave another small hysteric laugh. 

 

"I was kidnapped by a mermaid horse!" I shouted pathetically, at which they laughed. 

 

"And I'm here to rescue you from the clutches of the beast!" They replied, leaning to the side with an outstretched hand. 

 

I patted Rosie and took the slippery hand, jumping from one Hippocampus to another and clinging onto my friend's shivering wings. Rosie whinnied unhappily and dove under again before resurfacing to jump over us. My friend sighed. 

 

"She'll understand what's going on while we swim back. Malachite, take us to the shore, please." And with that, we were on our way home, clinging to each other for warmth and admiring the stars during the trip back.

 

-Memory End-

 

I wished I could go back in time, when things were easier. When we were all together. 

 

My willpower diminished, I was pulled back into the static of buzzing that controlled me, longing to see moonlight and the sky again.

((Wow, this thread just blow up O.o Sheesh.. I'm gone for the whole day and I return with ten new posts))

((Ok, than warning this post is long. It took me all day to do so you'll probably need a snack or more importantly an energy drink. Also, you guys can tell me what you thought of this post of Harry Trail. He's my first character thats actually a ba.d guy so I want to make sure he stays that way without showing anything good about him.. so feedback is welcomed))

 

 
Before traveling four hours to that isolated government facility, I'd stopped at a Raceway gas station to full up the gas tank.. currently my car only had a half tank of gas which wasn't going to be enough to even get me half way. 
 
I had begun filling the tank with fuel when my phone rings; I took my phone out from my pocket and looked at the caller ID.. it was my inside man, John. Without any delay I picked up the phone..
 
Harry: "John, did you get the last name of that doctor?"
 
John: "Yes I did. It was hard to dig up the information though.. most of the employee's info's has been erased. Its like there was never a Dome in the first place but nevertheless I have it. The doctor's name is Elizabeth Trial"
 
Harry: "Uh, I was expecting someone else" 
 
John: "Who were you expecting it to be?
 
Harry: *Small Laugh* "My ex-wife"
 
John: *Laughs* "Your ex-wife?! Harry, I doubt your ex-wife has the capability to actually find out where you had taken your daughter"
 
Harry: "Hmm, well than you clearly don't know my wife. If she put's her mind into it.. she could find anything out even when it involves our daughter"
 
I started to think for a moment.. Elizabeth Trial.. hmm.. the last name doesn't match up. I knew that my ex-wife is a doctor and she's pretty good at what she does but lets say she actually found out where I had taken Lily.. if she wanted to get into the facility she had to apply for a job there but since they knew Lily's first and last name, Elizabeth would need to change her last name so that they wouldn't connect her to Lily as being her daughter... oh my god
 
Harry: "John, the doctor is my ex-wife! I've just figured it out.. my ex-wife changed her last name to Trial rather than Trail. She lied on her job application. If you have the letter I and the letter A switch places, what do you get?"
 
There was a brief silence, right now he's using his head
 
John: "Oh my god, it spells Trail. So, your ex-wife is out there with your daughter!"
 
Harry: "Yes, she is *Small Laugh* Elizabeth is smart.. I'll give her that. But now that she's here.. it makes thing even harder for me.. and I thought having other hybrids with Lily was going to be tough, but now with my ex-wife included.. its going to be chaotic"
 
John: "Well, now that you mentioned the other hybrids.. I got some news. The Hunters have located the group of hybrids, surprising them with an Ambush. Luckily, for you the Hunters just saved you a four hour drive.. they'll have those hybrids captured in no time"
 
Suddenly, the pump that is attached to my car clicked; meaning that my car's gas tank is full. I excused myself from John before I detached the pump from my car and placed it back in its slot than closed the cover that conceals the pipe that leads to the gas tank. 
 
Harry: *Signs* "Ok, but that doesn't change anything I'm still going over there"
 
John: "Why are you still going? The Hunters have it under control-"
 
Harry: *Cuts John Off* "Really?! Are the hybrids coming peacefully?
 
John: "No, last thing I heard is that they are putting up a fight"
 
Harry: "Exactly, so I'm still going nevertheless. Knowing my daughter, she'll fight till the end and one thing she's stubborn at is not giving up so easily.. *Signs* Elizabeth rised a fighter apparently"
 
John: "..Uh, I don't think Elizabeth was the one that rised a fighter. I think Lily just learn how to relay on herself and no one else.. even with what she went through-"
 
Harry: "Excuse me?!"
 
John: "Nothing"
 
Harry: "I thought so. Alright, keep in touch.. if anything changes or if there's news from anyone that has high authority, give me a ring.. I'll want to know everything" 
 
John: "Ok, boss man. Currently, the person that was boss over everyone here hasn't said a word yet.. seems to me she's ((Cora)) fleed to who knows where" 
 
Harry: "Hmm, interesting.. you know what. Why don't you try to reach her? Dig up a phone number or something"
John: "Why would you want to contact her?"
 
Harry: "I think she'll be interested in making a deal. If those Hunters fail to capture the hybrids.. I may prove to be useful in a sense of lending my help.. of course I'll need something in return"
 
John: "And that's why your the boss. I'll try to dig that information up for you, safe travel"
 
With our conversation over; I hanged up the phone and I placed it back in my pocket. I walked into the gas station to buy some snacks for the trip and soon enough I got into my car and I was on the road again this time heading towards the government facility where I'll start my search for Lily.. it only a matter of time.
 
 
((Now, I need to think about Tigerlilys next post. I got to see what I'll come up with but right now I'm pooped :p))

James the goblin shark lobster man

§ James §

The hybrid picked up on his last few sentences, and this time James gave him a tired stare (a bit misdirected as he still couldn't see much of anything.) He took a step forward, but didn't get to reply before talons sunk into his back plates. A few seconds later he felt immense pain in his back as the attacker lifted him off the ground by nothing but his back. In a panic, he tried to twist up his head and bite the attacker's ankle, but by then he was already being dropped.

THUD was something along the lines of the sound that occured when he landed. Pain smacked him upside the head and pretty much everywhere else, and he let out a groan. His attacker landed by him, holding a blade that seemed to be made of pure electricity. James simply lay there for a moment, defeated and very much in pain. He then pushed himself slowly off the ground, regretting the action afterward but looking into the face of the dragon hybrid regardless. Nervousness built in his throat as he glanced around the battlefield, but he felt a point had to be made. Also he hoped Chit-Chat might call off his magic stained-glass hybrid if he got an answer.

"Do you really think, in this line of work, that I can simply walk away?" He said quietly, propping himself up and desperately holding on to consciousness, or at least control of his legs. "We will never be free, not from them. Accept that before any more blood has to be shed." Darts whizzed by them, a few sticking right into the dragon hybrid. He merely plucked them and pocketed them. "Something to keep in mind.." James thought, casting a sideways glare at the hybrid who had dropped him. He had to close his eyes and look away, the lightning sword a bit too much for him at the moment. He didn't dare move, hoping more for her to get hit by darts rather than attempting a half conscious run for it.

I noticed out of the corner of my that Lucy had nearly crashed into the ground. I next watched her take off towards James. Speaking of the fishy hybrid, he gave me a tired stare and took a step towards me. He could not get out a reply before Lucy grabbed onto his back. I watched James try to bite Lucy's legs but by then he was already falling, they both landed with a "thud" and a electric blade appeared in Lucy's hand, she looked winded and worn out.

I heard a groan come from James and watched as he pushed himself up and look up at my face. I listened to what he said and though on his words before I answered, "some already have" I stated first, I could tell by the way he propped himself up that he was on the edge of collapsing, "their is a problem with that logic" I told him, my voice like it would be if I was calmly talking with a friend, "freedom can only be achieved if we fight for it, if we were to give up to stop the bloodshed we would all still di,e, not physically but who we are inside; when they no longer need us for their tests we would become mindless soldiers, no more than mechanical pawns in their petty human wars" I told him, "that is why we fight, if we fight we will have a chance at freedom, if we give in we will suffer a fate worse than death" I finished, hoping he understood.

“AMBUSH!” Faolan’s voice rang through the camp.
I jolted upright from my perch, my eyes immediately darting around instinctively. I spotted several darts flying my way. Out of reflex, thanks to the testing I’ve been through in the Dome, I dodged all of them and took to the air to scan the area for an idea of the situation the group was in.
But, before I could get a thorough look of the camp-turned-battle field, I was assaulted by another wave of tranq darts. I dodged the first, lifting my arm up to deflect the second with my scales, and nullified the third with a burst of flame. I looked in the direction of my assaulters, seeing there were three avian hunters surrounding me.
Not too bad, I wiped my forehead with the back of my hand and ran my fingers down my hair into the wind, summoning a flaming sword in my hand and held it out before me in a neutral stance, determining whether or not to fight or defend.
Of course, I have to take the offensive, The thought pierced me. There’s no way if I’m getting the heck out only by defending myself. There’s others who may need saving as well!
But it was too late to decide. The three charged ahead. I noted that one was a fox-swan hybrid from appearance, the one that looked most nervous flying. The other two were more deft in the air, a black and yellow bee or wasp hybrid and a large roc hybrid of some sort.
Quickly formulating a plan, I narrowed my eyes and launched towards the roc hybrid in hopes to catch the largest of them off balance before eliminating the fox-swan.
I swiftly dove down beneath the roc hybrid and brought my sword up the set the hybrid on fire. If anything, it would send the hybrid retreating to put out the flames. Slipping out from beneath, I turned around to kick the roc-hybrid to the side, launching upwards to gain altitude before engaging again. To my dismay, the insect hybrid was faster than I expected, already reaching me just as I had launched off the roc hybrid. The hunter grabbed a hold of my tail, attempting to yank me down. Out of self defense, I set that part of my body on fire, hoping to get the hunter off me.
Apparently being set on fire meant nothing to that hybrid. He pulled me down and hurled me into the trees. I was beaten and whacked by the branches as I fell, tumbling to the ground. The impact sent me into a daze for a moment.
Gritting my teeth, I refocused, spotting the wasp and fox hybrid regrouping whereas the roc hybrid was thankfully nowhere to be seen, probably at the river putting out the flames. But what also caught my attention was the canopy above me, colored in bright orange.
Did I…I thought. Yeah, of course I accidentally set the trees on fire. Great.
I frowned at the sight. I’ve got to stop it from spreading and defeat these hunters at the same time? Totally going to work. It’s not like I have the ability to retract flames- actually, I might.
Being a phoenix hybrid, I could wield fire. But I never tested my limits. After all, all I’ve done was burn others. Why can’t I save others instead? I didn’t want to be a killing machine.
Fueled by my resolve, I shot upward towards the canopy again, weaving between branches until I reached the burning site. The sound of darts shot past my ears. Through the corner of my eye, I saw the hybrids chase after me, dart guns in hand. Turning around, I was almost tempted to send a few blasts of fire down.
Instead, I merely dodged the next wave of darts and focused on stopping the flames.
Retract! I thought as I attempted to return to flame to my body.
Nothing happened.
Shoot. I felt a dart bounce of my back near the base of my right wing. I twirled around to face the two hunters still on my tail. I summoned my sword again, burning another two darts with blocks from the sword. I evaded another which came from the fox hybrid. Dodging to the right, I climbed up into the sky and attempted to retract the flames again, only succeeding in catching my tails on fire.
The two hunters joined me in the sky. I formed a platform of flames to shield myself from the darts. Taking that chance, I made a Uturn and dove down at the wasp hybrid, tackling him into the trees. He attempted to fire a dart which I narrowly evaded. A surprised shout from behind and some widened eyes from the wasp hybrid told me that he had hit his fellow teammate. Smiling darkly, I let go, landing a kick on the wasp hybrid to send him down the ground. Looking up, I saw the fox-swan hybrid picking out a dart from his chest. If anything, the hunter was ought to feel the tranq within ten-fifteen minutes or less depending on how strong he was against it.
I considered letting him be, but the hunter showed no signs of giving up. The hybrid reloaded his dart gun and fired another round. I ducked behind a tree and hid from the darts before coming out from hiding and flying towards the other airborne hybrid with a flame in hand.
I deflected another dart with a shield of fire and morphed the sword into a sword to cut the next dart in half just as I reached him. I sliced at the hybrid’s wing and aimed a punch to his gut. “Get lost.”
The hybrid landed against a tree from the recoil of my blow and slumped down. I sighed in relief when the hybrid showed no sign of fighting. Quickly landing by him, I checked for any sign of life. To my relief, shallow breathing told me that he was just knocked out. I guess the tranq dart did help with that.
I looked down at the ground, seeing the wasp hybrid was gone from his spot, hopefully retreating. I returned my attention to the blaze above my head. It had spread more than I hoped. I flew up, realizing I had retracted my sword. Frowning, I tried to figure out the situation. How can I take back my sword, but not those flames.
After pondering for a moment, I determined the difference was the the sword was touching my body whereas the burning trees were not.
Landing on a tree top, I tried retracting again. Flames from that tree seeped upwards from the bark and leaves into my body. I sighed in relief at the disappearance, but felt weariness take place. My body was aching from the fight against three. Distant shouts and whizzing sound of darts reminded me of the rest of the siege.
Taking out the flames will take too long, I gritted my teeth. But the others...we need to get out of here. Maybe the flames would be a good distraction.
I dove down the the battlefield on the ground and spotted Faolan speaking with an unfamiliar lobster hybrid.
“Faolan, are you ok?” I called over to the dragon hybrid, concern written all over my face. “We need to get everyone out as fast as possible. I accidentally caused a blaze... but it’ll take too long to put out, so we need to have everyone out before the entire place is burned down.”
 
Hawk
“Ambush!” Faolan’s cry rang throughout the camp.
Immediately getting up, I saw hybrid rush into the camp, darts flying all over.
“Frickin scientists can’t even leave them alone,” I growled, taking out my bow and taking cover in the undergrowth.
From my hiding position, I was well camouflaged with the dirt. I used my bow and remaining tranq arrows to snipe out hunters from my spot. After taking out a few, I switched places to snipe more hybrids, repeating the process from minutes straight.
(Sorry, the sniper role isn’t much to write about. I'll write more in next post)
 
Ryu
The sudden cry of “Ambush!” rang in my ears. Getting up, I briefly spotted James in the midst of the invading hybrids.
Wait, what? What’s going on?
The word Ambush replayed in my head. Oh no, an ambush it is!
I took cover behind a few trees. Baske! I need to find her.
I levitated into the air, searching for the usually bright hybrid, my only friend in the group.
“Baske!” I shouted.
In the midst of my search, a hand caught my mouth.
“Shh, Ryu,” a voice behind me whispered. “I’m going to bring you home.”
I looked back to see who it was. An unfamiliar girl stood behind me, black hair and chestnut brown eyes, wearing black clothes.
She led me away from the fighting. “Emberlyn misses you, you know? It was wrong of you to leave her like that. But if you go back to her now, she’ll forgive that act of yours. After all, you’re like her own child to her.”
I widened my eyes, but failed to talk. Emberlyn? I get to see her?
The whole entire situation was confusing. There was some sort of ambush on the escapees, this girl was bringing me to Emberlyn, what was the entire siege for?
Soon enough, I spotted a truck parked by a tree.
“Stay in there,” the girl instructed. “We’re going in a moment.”
Her cam demeanor kept me dazed as I followed her instructions, my thoughts remaining in Emberlyn. To see her, am I really going to get? How I feel about being with those escapees, can I explain? They're nice and all. I think I can get her to understand, right?
Oh, here I wish Baske was. Help me think this through thoroughly, she would.
 
((I'll get my posts for other chars up later.))

This forest turned into a battlefield every hybrid was under attack by some type of hunter either Domestic hybrid hunter to armed human hunters. With waves of darts coming in every minute, it was hard to fight back.. wait.. that's it! We need to take out those sharp shooters without them and their dumb darts they don't have the upper hand on us. I'm going to take out those sharp shooter's but I'll use the element of surprise, I'll use the trees and bushs to hid me from their sight.. they're not going to see me coming.
 
I surveyed my surrounds; focusing on where the darts first come from and soon I caught sight of movement in the bushs just across from where I'm at. Using the cover of the trees and bushs, I took off running keeping close to the edge of the clearing, making my way around.
 
And soon enough the first sharp shooter came onto sight seemly preparing to fire another wave of darts, I picked up speed and once I got close I slammed into him causing him to fall to the ground hard.. it left him winded. I quickly took away his gun and strapped the gun over my shoulder than suddenly I heard a twig snap behind.. the moment I turn my head something scaly curls around my neck and lifts me off the ground than it turned me and I came face to face with an Snake/Dog hybrid, I realized then that he was grabbing me by his snake-like tail.
 
"Well, look what we have here. A little wolfy kitty cat, all alone causing trouble. I almost feel sorry for you" He chuckled before I felt his tail begin to slowly tighten around my neck, I started to struggle against him.. kicking furiously but I couldn't lay one good kick on him. "Oh! we got fighter" He laughed.. before I knew it, I started to cough.. I'm running out of air; in my desperate state.. I ejected my claws and stabbed them into the Snake/Dog hybrids tail, hopeing that the pain will cause him to let go of my neck. 
 
But it only made it worst for me. His grip on my neck grew tighter and tighter.. I continued to kick furiously trying to break free from his coil, but it wasn't enough.. soon I felt my strength depleting and I stopped struggling, I began wheezing and my sight was going into a blur... I'm so close to passes out from lack of oxygen.

With my daughter's sudden disappearance behind trees and bushs; I was left behind the tree she told me to get behind. In my years of living I have never seen such a battle unfold before my eyes, blood was on the forest ground, screams and shouts can be heard through out this once peaceful landscape.. I couldn't bear watching innocent hybrids get attack by these heartless hunters, this is not right at all! 
 
I dropped my med bag onto the ground and I started searching through my bag for one thing.. a weapon that I could use against these ruthless hunters; soon my hands came into contact with that very thing I was desperately looking for.. my pistol-size tranquilizer gun and only thirteen darts.. well, I'll have to make them count. 
 
I pulled out the tranquilizer gun than loaded it with five darts. Once I was locked and loaded, I peeked out from the side of the tree and I watched and waited for hunters, luckily it didn't take long.

§ James §

The dragon hybrid gave an interesting speech in response, one that James listened to and considered carefully. After a bit he let out a chuckle, followed by a cough that was a bit bloody due to his burnt nose. He spat out the blood and forced himself up, pausing a moment and casting the grey, electricity wielding hybrid a wary glance before forcing himself to his feet. It took every little bit of willpower to stay upright, and he stumbled back a bit once he managed. After a moment, he stared down at the ground. "I guess that's what separates the two of us. My spirit's already been broken. But you-" He paused, catching the scent of fire again and a trickle of suspicion building in his chest, but he pressed on. "You've got a group to lead. You've got people to take care of. How long until one of them d.ies?"

A hybrid landed behind him, causing him to twist his head to the side and raise his guard. She- apparently -had set the forest on fire. James sighed, having enough of fire today. "How long until you start turning against eachother.. Under your watch." James looked up, seeing a few trees had indeed caught fire and were spreading the blaze quite quickly. He turned loosely towards where they had come from, and stumbled toward the bushes and foliage for hopeful cover. He kept his senses as alert as possible, halfly expecting Chit-chat to try and kidnap him and maybe try to have a few more therapy sessions, so he kept his guard up as he half-consciously stumbled towards the vans.

James seemed to listen to what I said and it looked like he thought about what I said. He chuckled a little, the action causing him to cough, he spat out some blood after he coughed, he cast Lucy a wary glance before he forced himself up into an unsteady stance, I nodded at what he said "I guess so" I agreed with him I nodded to the rest of his statement "we've already lost a few" I said quietly to myself, answering his question. The loss of Fae and Magnus haunted me.

I watched Aki land and listened to her report "I am fine" I told her. I heard James's final words and watched him hobble off, we've lost too much to turn on each other I Thought to myself as I watched him go, I could not bring to mind the thought of one of the escapee's turning on one another, I was to hopeful in the thought that I could keep them all together and in peace. "Let him be, he has suffered enough" I said to the electricity wielding Lucy and concerned Aki. I turned to Aki and thought about what she said about the fire, "find the ones we know best and have them help you round up the rest of the hybrids, make sure to pay attention to how they smell, we don't want to accidentally bring a hunter along" I told Aki, I next turned to Lucy, glancing at her lightning sword, "help Aki out please" I glanced at around the battlefield after I had given my orders, looking for hybrids that looked familiar.

I noticed a odd looking heat signature by a tree and began walking towards it, not realizing it was Tigerlily in the coils of a hunter. When I came up to scene I switched out of my heat and saw the limp form of Tigerlily in the coils of a dog snake hybrid. I didn't say anything and just launched into an attack on the hunter hybrid.

I pulled the darts out of my pocket and jammed them into the hybrids chest as I ran into him. The collision winded him and sent me sprawling, I stood quickly up and was about to go to Tigerlily's aid when a white scaled arm came around my neck, "HELP AKI, GET everyone to safety" was all I managed to say before the white scaled hybrid began dragging me into the forest.

Soldier/Faolan general point of view

The Soldier had Faolan in a powerful choke hold but was not ready for the fight that the black dragon hybrid would put up. Two back fists collided with the Soldier's face and caused him to lose his choke hold on Faolan who took the advantage and got out of the Soldiers hold and turned to face his attacker. Faolan froze where he was when he saw the entirety of the white dragon hybrid, "Father?" he managed to say before the Soldier silently began to attack Faolan. Massive and even blows were exchanged between the two dragons as the forest began to burn around them. A few human and hybrid hunters who were retreating back to the van stopped to watch the scene but dared not stay and help when fire began spewing from the mouths of the two dragons.

Lon'qu

((I'm not sure if there are any random escapees but I'll include them here anyway.))

 

Lon'qu took his stance as soon as he saw Lilith, if he wasn't mistaken, electrocuted and plummeted into the trees. He was about to rush over as soon as an Escapee approached the young hunter only to be intercepted by other Escapees. The blonde hybrid pulled out his gun and shot the two at their apparent weak spots. It was enough to left them hopeless yet too weak to k.ill them off. Soon, he found himself surrounded by a number of Escapees.

I'll make this quick, he thought to himself, twirling his gun. The first Escapee launched at him, barring its fang. Lon'qu swiftly ducked and swung his legs across the ground, knocking the hybrid off of its footing before injecting a syringe filled with anesthesia. As soon as he was done, he turned to the remaining two, took out a second gun, and shot them at their apparent weak spots, just like what he did to the two Escapees earlier, leaving them helpless as they suffered from their injuries.

I was hoping they'd put more effort, Lon'qu thought as more and more Escapees approached him. This time, he decided to put away his weapons. As substitute, he jabbed their pressure points rapidly, paralyzing the lot of them in seconds. When he neared the tree Lilith fell into, a sudden blaze emerged. He immediately climbed up, picked up the girl and ran towards the van. He felt his muscle stiffened the longer he held Lilith but at the very least, she barely looked human to him and she was still young. Upon arriving near the van, he handed Lilith to a fellow human hunter.

"Lon'qu, make sure the fire doesn't reach the van but don't let it dissipate. This fire might just burn those hybrids alive," the man ordered, "And use this." The man handed Lon'qu a stone, a jagged one which looked similar to aquamarine before running off into the van. The fire started creeping its way towards the vehicle, spreading faster by means of the trees. Lon'qu closed his eyes, focusing his energy on the stone. The grey blue stone began to glow softly, emitting traces of light that seeped into the blonde hybrid. He felt the fire starting to burn his shoes. Immediately, his eyes flew open and he slammed his palms on the ground, creating a trail of ice which evolved into a wall of ice, separating the area around the van with the burning woods.

 

((Basically, the aquamarine stone amplifies Lon'qu's ice powers as he currently lacks proper Ice Phoenix DNA to manipulate ice on his own.))

My body began shutting down.. my vision grew even darker.. my claws that where once stabbed into the hunters tail, now hanging from my side.. my only thought was stay awake; but that thought wasn't enough.. my eyes began to close.. everything around me was slipped away. 
 
I was at the edge until something happened. Something collided against the hunter.. I felt it through the hunters tail, it was more like vibrations channeled from the collision. Once it happened, the hunters grip on my neck subsided and he let go.. causing me to fall down onto the ground.. I instantly gasp for air; the pure, rich oxygen swept into my lungs.. I started breathing again.
 
Soon, my senses slowly began to come back to me "HELP AKI, GET everyone to safety" It sounded like Faolan; with great effort.. I tryed to get up but I only ended up collaping onto the ground again, I turn my head towards where I heard him shout and all I saw where two blurry figures, one black and the other white going into the forest. 
 
*Groans* ".... Faolan...." I called faintly, that hunter choked me so bad that my voice is nearly completely gone. When the figures disappeared into the forest, I noticed that the snake dog hybrid that was choking me earlier was knocked out on the ground with darts sticking out from his chest "..ah.. serves you right" I muttered, I was going to lay there for a bit until I regain some of my strength back.. but than something caught my attention.. something smelled like burning wood. 
 
I glanced towards where this smell is coming from and I caught sight of a bright orange, redish light in the forest trees; I wasn't expecting to see a fire forest drawing near.
 
*Groans* Once again, I try to get back on my feet.. I nearly collaped again but I refused to fall back down, I soon managed to stand. As I'm about to get moving, I heard something through the burning sounds of trees cracking under the flames.. sounds of a struggle; it was coming from the direction I managed to see those two blurry figures disappear into the forest.. something's going on.
 
Smoke started flowing in, I was unsure what to do either go back to the clearing and regroup with everyone or find Faolan; as much as it pains me.. I can't go alone to find Faolan through these flames. With my decision made, I began to make my way back to where I last saw everyone "..guys.." I called out faintly, hopeing someone hears my call.

“I am fine,” Faolan assured me.
“Let him be, he has suffered enough,” Faolan said. I glanced in the direction of Lucy to see the lobster hybrid hobble off before returning my attention to the leader.
“Find the ones we know best and have them help you round up the rest of the hybrids, make sure to pay attention to how they smell, we don't want to accidentally bring a hunter along,” he said.
“On it,” I replied and flew off in search for the rebellion group of hybrids which had gathered first to make the escape possible. After all, those were the ones I knew best.
Spotting Mynah in a fight with a hunter, I swooped down and grabbed the hybrid and flew up to fling her away.
“Mynah, we’ve got to gather all the others and get out!” She called over to the wyvern hybrid. “Try and find the others we know well to help.”
I paused, remembering Faolan’s advice. Landing by my friend, I repeated the dragon hybrid’s words, glancing back towards the hunter I had thrown off. “And pay attention to scent since we don’t want to bring along any hunter. Have them head down the river for the time being.”
I then flew off to gather the escapees, ushering them towards the river, telling them to head down the running water’s path when I spotted Faolan wrestling with an older white scaled dragon hybrid.
“Faolan!” I flew at the assaulting hybrid, adrenaline pulsing through me.
With my wings, I blocked the flames both dragon hybrids spewed. Slipping beneath the line of fire, I punched at the white dragon hybrid.
“Why can't you guys leave us alone?” I cried out, tackling the hybrid away from Faolan.
Subconsciously, I had set my wings on fire to fuel my energy. I could hear flames roaring in the background as the woods burned. I unlocked from combat and hopped back over to Faolan’s side. “I sent them over to follow the river for now. We should make a break for it soon.”

I spotted Tigerlily badly injured, limping through the battle field. Dashing over, I quickly supported her like a crutch.
“Darn,” I cursed. “What happened?”

After much great effort, I had managed to return to the clearing; battles were still raging against the hunters.. I had to careful. But luckily, Hawk came to my aid.. he dashed over to me and quickly supported me like a crutch “Darn,” He cursed. “What happened?”
 
I cleared my throat before I replied ".. well, let's just say I thought that if I took out those hunters that are shooting those darts at us, we might have a fighting chance. And.. well, I managed to surprise one and I slammed into him, which left him winded so than I took his gun" I gestured to the dart gun strapped on my back than continued "After that, I was in the process of continuing but I got surprised by a snake dog hybrid and.. um.. he coiled his snake-like tail around my neck than he lifted me off the ground and he started choking me to the point that I nearly passed out. But than Faolan saved me from the hunter.. which I am graceful but than someone took hold of Faolan and took him into the forest and I wanted to go find him but than I saw the fire and I decided that I couldn't go alone to find him through the raging flames.. and well, here I am" I finished explaining to Hawk what had happened to me in a rapid manner.

Mynah recovered from the dart

Mynah recovered from the dart to see the tunnel hybrid- James? - run off and the forest on fire.

For the love of the sky? Why is everything on fire?

Getting up and looking around, she saw Tigerlilly nearly collapsed on the ground.

Is she alright?

Great! So while everyone else was defending us and getting hurt, I was paralyzed on the ground!

But then a vicious Alligator/dog hybrid tackled her and they rolled around in the dust.  They both go good hits on eachother.  Then the weight was lifted off of her and Mynah looked up to see Aki flinging the hybrid away.

She called over her shoulder to Myna, “Mynah, we’ve got to gather all the others and get out!  Try and find the others we know well to help.”  Then she paused and landed to tell her some wise advise. "And pay attention to scent since we don’t want to bring along any hunter. Have them head down the river for the time being."

Mynah nodded and ran off, sniffing hybrids or shoving them away, trying to get them together and fleeing from the hunters.

 

((Sorry for not writing for a little bit and for this horrible post.  Im not really sure what to write, my mind is blank.))

Hawk

After clearing her throat, Tigerlily explained quickly. “.. well, let's just say I thought that if I took out those hunters that are shooting those darts at us, we might have a fighting chance. And..”
I spotted a hunter approach, armed with a dart gun. I reflexively used my free hand to throw an arrow at the hybrid’s knee, where his guard was down before returning my attention to Tigerlily.
“...surprise one and I slammed into him, which left him winded so then I took his gun.” She gestured to the dart gun strapped on my back than continued. “After that, I was in the process of continuing but I got surprised by a snake dog hybrid and.. um.. he coiled his snake-like tail around my neck than he lifted me off the ground and he started choking me to the point that I nearly passed out. But than Faolan saved me from the hunter.. which I am graceful but then someone took hold of Faolan and took him into the forest and I wanted to go find him but then I saw the fire and I decided that I couldn't go alone to find him through the raging flames.. and well, here I am.”
I gritted my teeth. With the forest burning down, there was no way I can go in and search without injury. And, I had to admit, Tigerlily mattered more to me at the moment. Deep in my mind, I had a feeling that our leader would be fine whereas the tiger hybrid before me was nearly at the point of passing out and had to be taken out to safety.
“...He’ll be fine. Faolan’s a tough guy to break,” I concluded. “We need to get you to safety.”
Looking around, I saw most of the escapees were fleeing towards the river. It seemed logical, considering the fact that the fire would likely not touch it. But the easiness of tracking the group through the fire thanks to the river worried me.
“Looks like most of them are heading that way,” I grunted, helping Tigerlily towards the fleeing group.
 
Ryu
The temperature got colder somehow. I tried to look out the window, but found it covered up completely. Sighing, I wondered over my decision. Maybe I should've told someone first. I guess go along and try to settle things peacefully, I’ll just have to. To cause extra trouble along the way, there's no need to.
 
Serephina
I was lying down under a tree. It was the fifth day after the escape the hybrids pulled off and we were finally settling down for a moment. I sighed, glad I can finally get some rest for my entire body, which was aching from the constant run. Although I am a long distance runner, a run for five days straight was getting to me.
Aside from the appearance of a flame, marking a contract being made between a magical hybrid named Lucy and the escapee leader Faolan, the day was fine. That was, until-
“Ambush!” The leader’s voice boomed across the camp.
I leaped to my feet, spinning around. What’s going on?
Darts whizzed by, one or two nearly hitting me. That instant, I was immediately on the run, using my powerful legs to carry me to safety among the woods.

general view

The blows that were exchange between father and son were powerful and if it were not for the sounds of fire the sounds of the fight would be easy to hear.

Faolan

The white dragon hybrid wore my father's scales but who he was inside was not the person I knew all those years ago, he didn't even recognize his own son. I had just landed a blow to my fathers chest when Aki came out of the flames and assaulted the nearly seven foot dragon hybrid, punching and tacklig him away from me. Her wings were a blaze and she quite a stunning sight.

I stood straighter, I was sore and charred slightly but I felt stonger knowing that Aki was there. "Thank you, good, the water should keep them safe as we escape the fire..." I replied, barely noticing my father's movements in time. The white hybrid had launched himself at Aki, "Aki" I cried as I shoved her out of the way and put myself in her place. My father flattened me and tried to leap from me and onto Aki, I would not let this happen so I grabbed his tail while he was mid jump, he would probably ki,ll her if he caught her. "Aki, RUN, don't worry about me" I told her as my father turned towards me, growled, and lunged once more at Aki, "RUN, I will find you after this" I yelled, I did not want her to feel the blows my father could deal.

§ James §

James managed into the shrubbery, not hearing any signs of pursuit. "Good," he thought to himself "Just what I would need now is yet another whomping." Everything was starting to go numb, his vision already very blurry and blotched. He headed back to where the vans were, and he hauled himself into one. After letting out a sigh, he sat down on the metal bench that clung to the side of the van's wall. He panted heavily, closing his eyes and leaning his head against a wall. His guard shot back up when he heard someone enter the van with him. He twisted his head and bared his teeth in a weak growl.

"Easy, easy. I'm the medic." The woman said, holding up her hands defensively. James ceased growling and relaxed again, a bit too tired to worry if this was a trick or not. The woman approached him and started wrapping his wounds and attending to his burns. James uttered a weak "Thanks..." before he slipped into unconsciousness.

Aki (Hikaru) Yonaka ~ Escapee
Aki
“Thank you, good, the water should keep them safe as we escape the fire…” Faolan said.
I took my eyes off of the opposing hybrid to see how the black scaled hybrid was doing, but that was all that was needed to catch me off guard.
“Aki!” Faolan suddenly cried, shoving me away.
I watched wide eyed in terror as he took my place as the white scaled hybrid leaped over.
Scrambling up, I flamed and raised up my arms in defense, ready to counter a blow. But Faolan was quick, grabbing a hold of the dragon hybrid’s tail as I recovered balance.
“Aki, RUN, don't worry about me,” he yelled over the surrounding commotion, “RUN, I will find you after this.”
I gritted my teeth, looking indecisively between Faolan, his assaulter, and the fleeing escapees for a moment. I locked eyes with the black dragon hybrid, flames dissipating from my wings. I twitched a tail feather nervously, debating whether or not to defy the dragon hybrid and stay by his side.
After evading the white scaled hybrid’s lung, I dipped my head, turning to fly after the others. “Don't do anything stupid!”
I hoped I made the right decision, having the others to help.

Elizabeth And Tigerlily
It wasn't hard for me to guess which hybrid was hunter and which one was not. I'd carefully aimed at these hunters and one by one I shot them with my tranquilizer darts.. I couldn't believe how good I was at using this thing, I'm a doctor 24/7 but I'm also one great shooter when the time calls for it. But as I'm shooting some of these hunters.. I couldn't help but notice a raging fire spreading across the forest and drawing quite near to us, escapees. 
 
Soon everyone was being gathered and being ushered towards the river thats nearby, I realized that it was my daughters friends, uh Aki and um Mynah gathering them. Though, I started to worry.. my daughter hasn't returned from the forest, I don't know where she is or even if she's safe.. but something told me that she could be with the gathering hybrids who are running down the river water's path. So, I throw my dart gun inside my med bag than I picked it up from the ground and I started running after the gathered hybrids. 
 
Soon enough, I managed to catch up with the group. 
 
 
---Tigerlily---
 
 
“...He’ll be fine. Faolan’s a tough guy to break,” Hawk concluded, hmm.. well, Hawk's right.. Faolan is one tough hybrid, he.ll.. I fought him once and it wasn't easy for me to keep him at bay.. but come on, he saved me and I'm pretty sure Hawk knows that I don't like leaving anyone behind "We need to get you to safety.” Hawk then said to me, wait.. what?! 
 
A part of me told me to fight against Hawk and refuse to retreat to safety.. I'm fine its not as ba.d as it looks but the other half of me told me to suck it up and admit defeat.. inside you might say your fine but physically speaking, your in no condition to go back and continue to fight those hunters. 
 
So, all I did was sign.. "Alright" I muttered, just looking down at the ground.. I got beaten by a snake dog hybrid, this is just embarrassing. I noticed Hawk start looking around though I didn't bother to look along with him "Looks like most of them are heading that way,” Hawk grunted, I just lifted my head slighty to find hybrids running down towards the river, Hawk began helping me towards the fleeing group.
 
But something troubled me as we're trying to caught up with the group.. I felt like I was missing something actually missing someone.. oh my god, my mother! 
 
"Hawk, my mother.. where's my mother?!" I asked Hawk starting to panic; oh my god if anything happened to my mother.. I don't know how I'll live with myself.

I struggled to keep a hold of my father, I saw Aki look between him, the other escapees and me. I met her eyes and watched as lessened her firery wings, I could tell she was debating on whether to do what I asked or defy me. "Don't do anything stupid!" I heard her yell at me as she flew after the escapees, I sighed I'll try not to.

~General view~

Once Aki was no longer in danger the fight between black and white began again. A few scales left their hosts and fell to the ground, scattered about like a bunch of broken yin yangs. Both sides had drawn blood but that was where the once equal blows of the fight began to shift to one side. The older and more experienced Soldier began to pulled out a lead and used it.

Faolan suffered another blow from his father and staggered backwards, his father used this break in defense to lunge and sink his fangs into a open wound on Faolan's shoulder, Faolan grunted in pain and dug another blood filled line in the Soldier's back with the claw on his wing. Both sides were immune to each others potent venom but that didn't mean it had no effect on them. The venom made Faolan dizzy and unable to fight any more.

The Soldier put a zip tie cuff around Faolan's mouth to prevent him from breathing fire and around his wrists to keep him from doing to much, The Soldier looped his tail under Faolan's armpits and began to drag the black dragon towards the vans, Faolan struggled as much as he could thanks to the zip ties and venom he could do little more than keep his wings against his back.

The Soldier walked a little while like this before he finally came upon the vans that his gps had led him to. It was next to one of these that the Soldier waited, he would let Harkness decided what to do with the rebel leader. While he waited some of the retreating hunters gathered to both marvel at the first Hybrid Soldier they had heard about and jeer at the captured Faolan.

Captain Jack Harkness

((since you seem to be waiting on harkness I'll just control him))

Captain Jack Harkness

The Captain had been leading his men in the ambush of the hybrids, armed himself with a heavy-duty sniper rifle modified a bit for tranq darts and other special ammunitions. He had set up a ways behind the front soldiers, sniping unsuspecting hybrids who figured they'd literally "dodged a bullet". The scene erupted into a battlefield quickly. Blood spattered the ground where hybrids had ripped eachother to bits, some hybrids were unconscious, some men were unconscious, and a whole 'lotta screaming and mayhem. Harkness loved the battle, small as it was, but even he couldn't stay behind once word spread the forest was going up in flames. He hissed a curse, directing for them to gather everyone up and get back to the vans to get ready to follow them.

Harkness himself trudged back up to the vans, his rifle slung over his shoulder and his face slightly dirty after the battle. As he approached the vans he spot a white figure and a black figure, the latter tied up and wire cuffed. A smile broke onto Harkness' face as he trotted up to the defeated dragon hybrid. "Well, well, well look what the cat dragged in. Good job, boys!" He barked to the surrounding soldiers. Some sneered at the dragon hybrid while others simply dispersed. Harkness turned to the Soldier and leaned close to him. "Follow me" He said quietly, then lead the Soldier a ways off back towards the shrubbery.

"Look," He said, once they arrived at a good area. "This is the leader of the rebellion, yeah?" He asked, prodding the black dragon hybrid with a finger. He then reached to his side and pulled a handgun from its holster. "I want you to kill him, and leave his body here for the rest of those freaks to find it." He cocked the gun and handed it to the Soldier. "In the head. We need to show them a nice, clear message." Harkness' voice was sharp, and he smiled slightly as he commanded the beast to do his bidding. He crossed his arms and narrowed his eyes at the black dragon hybrid, who was slumped and slightly resisting the Soldier's grasp. He chuckled to himself.

((You can control Harkness btw Mech. ;D))

Faolan

The Soldier

He watched Harkness as the grimy man approached the slight crowd of hunters both human and hybrid, he was silent as always. No emotion registered on his face as Harkness smiled and dispersed the hunters. The Soldier nodded and dragged Faolan after Harkness. Harkness lead the Soldier off towards the bushes and away from the vans.

"Look, This is the leader of the rebellion, yeah?" Harkness said and The Soldier nodded, that was the reason why the Soldier had targeted the Black dragon. The Soldier watched as Harkness pulled a hand gun from its holster on his side, "I want you to kill him, and leave his body here for the rest of those freaks to find it. In the head. We need to show them a nice, clear message." Harkness said as he gave the Soldier a gun, no one had dared trust the Soldier with a real gun when they were training him but they had trained him with prop guns.

The Soldier forced the black dragon into a kneeling position and placed the gun on the forehand of the hybrid.

Faolan

I growled when the human prodded me with a finger, smoke rolled out of my nose. I winced when my "father" forced me into a kneeling position, I ached all over. I was slowly gaining my strength but once the white dragon placed a gun to my head and I knew I would not be able to take them both on in my state and with my mouth/hands bound. I will become a martyr, they will stay strong and together... I hope I thought to myself, my last thoughts. I pressed my scaled head into the gun and stared deep into the white dragon's eyes, it was a soul piercing glare of hatred, I glanced over at the human but he just laughed, I closed my eyes when I saw my father start to pull the trigger.

 

Something unseen flickered inside of The Soldier.

 

A shot rang out through the forest -the sound of the rapport from the weapon was audible over the flames- and a body fell to the ground.

Amelia and Lucy~

((I'll probably edit this post with their various POVs. Idk when it'll be finished- hopefully before I go to bed, so about 3 hours? Also, if I get any of the facts wrong, just lemme know and I'll correct it))

 

Amelia~

 

I was still watching the twitching hybrid when another Hunter suddenly appeared from the trees and snatched her up, dashing out of sight with her motionless body. I watched them go, figuring the hybrid would be tended to and this way I wouldn't reveal myself to the enemy. 

 

I spread my wings, ready to take off, when I smelled smoke. I looked around me before freezing up, terrified, as hungry flames devouring the tree tops, spreading lower and igniting the forest floor ablaze around me. I yelped with fear and scrambled upwards, curling my very-much-flammable tail underneath the rest of my body. 

 

I was trapped. 

 

"Help!" I screamed, hoping anyone at all would hear, even if that 'anyone' was a hunter. Being dragged away in captivity was better than becoming a pile of ash, at any rate. 

 

"Someone, please, help me!" I wailed, observing the area around me to make sure there was no other way out alive. The dangling ivy looked like a bomb fuse, flames curling upwards and turning the plants to ash. The dry brush and twigs provided excellent fuel for several feet in all directions. The top of my tree had caught fire, as well. 

 

Yeah, I was pretty much hybrid barbecue. 

 

A stray ember flew onto my tail, causing a small flame that charred some of my thick, white, tail fur. I patted it out, hissing as the heat made contact with my padded hands. Smoke was beginning to fill the air around me, and I started to cough- mildly, at first, but it soon turned into choking gasps as the dark grey substance forced it's way into my lungs. 

 

"Help!" I yelled one more time, barely able to get the word out between hacking coughs. The flames were spreading both lower and higher, from the ground up and from the tree top down. I was cornered by the destructive element, about to become hybrid-toast, when the tree shook and I felt scaly arms pluck me from my perch. The flaming roots of the tree shuddered once more, but just as I felt the foundation falter, we were soaring through the air again- cold, clean air. 

 

I took deep breaths, trying to replace the smoke in my lungs with the crisp wind that blew against my flushed cheeks. I could hardly make out our surroundings when we landed, my eyes tearing up from my time spent in the blaze. I saw the outline of a hybrid, staring at me. I was about to attempt to say 'thank you' when I felt the less-welcomed cold of metal cuffs, which were quickly used to secure my six limbs. In a panic, I tried to use my drugged spray, but my tail was already secured, rendering that attack useless. My wings were next- tied by a rough rope that scratched at them painfully. I coughed harder, trying to muster up a scream from my weak lungs. 

 

"Cora wanted to end you herself, or I would've left you there to die." The hybrid hissed, bending foward and revealing shark-like teeth and eyes. 

 

"Traitor." 

 

I was roughly forced up from my sitting position, and dragged several feet forward. The air was downright artic now, I shivered as it bit through my orange sweater. 

 

"We got Amelia!" The stranger cried, his voice rough and raspy. A few cheers erupted from the enemy's sort-of camp. Well, it seemed like it was just a white van containing supplies and weapons, rather than an actual 'camp', per say. As I was being dragged towards a scowling doctor to be examined for anything fatal, a gunshot suddenly rang out, and the unmistakeable 'thud' of a body followed. 

 

My captor froze, I froze, and all noise from the Hunters ceased, as if time itself, too, had frozen. 

 

 

Lucy~

((Rereading this, it's rather OP. I more wrote it to have fun, not show off Lucy's powers, I promise. She's not normally this powerful, at all.))

 

I followed Faolan's orders, herding whole groups of hybrids to the safety of the river, where the fire couldn't reach them and they could overpower any enemies with their numbers. 

 

With most of the camp taken care of, and fire spreading all over the place to cause even more mayhem then there already had been, I decided it was time to take care of some of the Hunters. I swooped over the burning trees like a hawk, scanning the terrane for unfriendly foes wielding dart guns. The humans I found were finished quickly, and I brought any salvaged weapons from my short battles to the grouped Escapees, with the exception of a single, odd sort of sword known as a rapier. I had a faint memory of training with someone, long ago. Perhaps it was that Cro-something, and that's why the name sounded so familiar. 

 

'Too much remembering today.' I thought to myself, strapping my new weapon to my side. I'd experiment with it later. 

 

I kept the sword because my magic wasn't always reliable. If I ever got into a scrape and my magic didn't pull through, I was as good as dead unless I could talk my way out. 

 

'Talk... That's it! A trap! Lucy, you're so slow, how did I not think of it sooner?' I chided myself before soaring a few feet more and landing in a clearing. Showtime. 

 

Blue magic zipped about me, creating a fancy stage with velvet curtains of a dark red, shiny wood floors, and other various things. My normal clothing was exchanged for a suit, bow-tie, and tophat, along with a fancy show-cane. Why was I dressed like this instead of in a fancy dress or something more girly? Because reasons, now shut up. 

 

(Random warns Lucy not to break the fourth wall) 

 

I tapped my cane againts the stage at a steady rhythm, almost instinctively. Then again, most of my magic was instinctive anyways. However, this time I knew what I was doing- a mild hypnosis spell to draw in nearby Hunters. 

 

"Come one, come all, to the Fantastic Lucy's performance!" My voice boomed through the trees, the crackling flames my only response so far. 

 

"Today, we'll be witnessing Lucy, myself, perform, with an original choreographed dance number accompanied by song!" A few hybrids were emerging, some carrying dart guns while others looked downright rabid and ready to end my life with their own two hands. 

 

"I see we have a tough crowd out here this afternoon, but don'tcha folks worry. It'll be worth it." I winked, seeing a few more Hunters straggle through the trees to see what idiot would make themselves such a huge target. 

 

Then all censored broke loose. 

 

Thunder crackled above me, repeating the tempo of an old song I had heard only a few times in my life, played by the guards that watched my tank back in captivity as a joke. Now, the joke was on them. 

 

With the first lightning strike setting the mood, I started walking on air over the small group- about eight total, for now. 

 

"Hey there, I know you can hear me. Hey there, I know you can see." 

 

Another strike of lightning, soundless- the thunder muffled by my magic. 

 

"Hey there, things are 'bout to get crazy so you sit right there and you listen to me." 

 

My wings snapped open, reflecting the next strike oddly like shards of glass. My electric sword was summoned, and I smiled at the wary hybrids. 

 

"Don't let go of this opportunity, since there's no guarantee it'll last." 

 

I floated soundlessly to the ground again, watching as the hybrids started to lower their weapons in confusion. 

 

"What do you say little pals, have we got a deal? Haven't got all day, so you'd best think fast!" 

 

One had started to charge forward with a war cry. One strike of lightning brought him down to an unconcious, twitching shadow, and the rest were starting to shuffle around nervously. A few more curious onlookers were coming forth from the trees, hypnotized by the music.

 

"Side with me, guys, I'll have your back. Count me in when confidence is all you lack!" 

 

I was teasing the hybrids now, flying above their heads and using blue magic to temporarily alter their appearances to match the words of the song. 

 

"Price is simple, rather sparing. Time is slipping- life is choices, let's start living!" 

 

I pranced above them, soaring higher and higher as more lightning flashed dangerously, and my blue magic went to work, showing each hybrid what they wanted to see in the reflection of a mirror placed before them. The mirror relied on each individual mind's preference, so I had no clue what they saw. 

 

"You know they'll try to deceive you. Your hunches were right from the start. You don't have to fight and play soldier, take a stand and tear, their world all apart." 

 

All the mirrors shattered, and a gold glint entered each hybrid's eye. 

 

"Time draws short so you gotta make up your mind, I don't offer these things every day. Oh my, how powerful you could be, if you just say the word and let me stay." 

 

I teleported back to the stage, surveying the considering group. 

 

"Side with me, guys, I'll have your back. Count me in when confidence is all you lack!" 

 

I extended my hand towards the nearest hybrid. In a daze, he stepped forward. 

 

"Price is simple, rather sparing. Time is slipping- life is choices, let's start living!" 

 

Slowly, in a calm line, all the hybrids that had been watching shook my hand and agreed to my terms. I now had an army of mildly hypnotized enemy troops ready to command. I couldn't keep this up for long- my energy was already depleted and anything longer than ten minutes could make me pass out, become unstable, or... Die. 

 

"The deal is sealed." I proclaimed, fire flashing and gong sounding soon after. The zombie-like hybrids hardly reacted. 

 

"Army, storm your camp! Do not fight, simply take anything of value and return it here. When you're finished, head back the way you came and do not return." I ordered. 

 

They all started to follow- until the gunshot rang out. Startled, my magic faltered and three fouths of the hybrids snapped awake instantly. I already knew I was in trouble. 

 

'If they hurt anyone on my side, they break the deal.' I thought to myself, preparing for the rage to settle upon me as the first one rushed forward and clawed at my cheek. 

 

Three thin scratches dripped red, and another gong sounded- this one much louder and threatening. The ones still hypnotized remained still- trapped by other magic I had used to keep them in line. The rest charged, following the first's example... Until I roared. 

 

I didn't remember much of those three minutes and forty-two seconds of pure rage, but when I came back to myself, the deal-breakers were gone, I was breathing heavily, and I held a broken blue dragon's spine in my hand. I discarded the spike and turned to the remainder. 

 

"Follow your previous orders." I instructed. The three remaining hybrids marched away, leaving me alone, surrounded by fire, and completely drained. 

 

I simply collapsed on the ground, too tired to do anything more.

 

 

((I feel like the quality of this post went down the drain. Sorry. It's 5 AM and I need to sleep.))

((Fyi, if you're curious about the song, it's called DeCIPHER by Madame Macabre. It's a little... Interesting. I like it, though))

Aki

((Sorry, I’ll be pushing things along to get things going a bit faster))
I saw out of the corner of my eye Faolan resuming battle with the white scaled hybrid. To my relief, the fire both dragon hybrids let out was scary enough to prevent them from interfering with the battle. For now, I had to cross my heart and hope with all my might that Faolan would come out victorious and make it back safe and sound.
At least I gave directions of where to head, I comforted myself. He’ll make it and come down and meet up with us soon.
Seeing the group heading downstream, I flew in front and vocalized a plan. “Everyone! Keep calm and head this way!”
I lifted my arm to point towards further downstream. “Try not to stray from the river! The fire’s spreading quickly and we need to stick together. I’ll do a headcount. In the meanwhile, just keep heading down. If there’s anyone missing, please report to me.”
I dared not to mention hunters, in order to keep the group calm. The last thing we needed was a loss of trust in one another.
Flying over to Mynah, I gave instructions. “Can you lead the group for now? We need to get out of the aflamed part of the forest. I’ll do a headcount.”
I then flew overhead once again and did as I said I would. Counting the number of hybrids, I regretted not taking the time to know them all better. We’re missing some of them for sure. I thought, dismayed as I heard some mentions of missing escapees.
I spotted Hawk and Tigerlily just at the tail end of the group. I descended to them and saw Tigerlily, concerned.
“What's wrong?” I asked.
 
Soraka
Nothing more than darkness shrouded me.
Only a twinge of a distant feeling entertained my thoughts.
But what was that feeling? Remorse? Guilt? Whatever it was, it only made the darkness emptier and more bitter.
My body was frozen cold like the icy heart I had gained. I hadn't felt warmth in forever. No, it had been six years since I felt warm. Six years since I could spread my wings free. Six years ago was when I was last free and happy. Now, I felt nothing more than the impending terror as word had leaked out- word of a new terror the humans were to bring upon the hybrids.
But what did the human’s activities matter to me if I was left nothing but a captive to them? I was nothing in the life of the earth. Nothing more than a mere insect was to me. So, the clock kept ticking on, the arms still rotating endlessly between day and night. No one cared for me. If they did, why was I still stuck under the scientists’ thumbs? Why was I still being played like a puppet; just lying there for the scientists to control my strings. I couldn’t wait to escape this cage. But how could I ever when the scientists kept such a tight hold on me? Maybe just one friend could’ve saved me. So I could see her again.
No, I did have a friend. Yes, I did suffer, but I now have hope. Triton did escape after all. He sacrificed himself to help me anyways. And he was on his way to inform the others…
I smiled, or at least I felt myself smile. Hope, that’s what we’re all built on, aren’t we?
I imagined the boy once again along with a blonde girl. He had sleek silver hair, ruffled from the adventure. They weren’t older than eleven or so. They were accompanying me through the woods. The three of us playing under the cover of the trees. I felt the smile return to my face for a fleeting last moment before pain stabbed at my body, the darkness blazing up.
I felt myself scream, I think. Maybe my lungs were just strained, dealing with the sudden pain, just like the rest of my body.
What is this? I shouted silently. The void of darkness sucked in my voice. I felt as if I was shocked all over. Excruciating pain ripped at my skin in multiple places. I fought the darkness, trying to freeze it with my ice. The chill returned, all traces of happy memories eradicated as I tried to figure out the situation I was in. I felt as if I was unconscious, yet my mind was working.
I tried to open my eyes, but they remained enclosed in the darkness, unwilling to open. I tried to summon more ice to prove my wake, but no feeling of cold surface beneath me or sound of ice sizzling upon contact with anything. Perhaps it was just my unconsciousness after all.
Suddenly my vision jolted on.
System start. Testing complete. A voice spoke in my ear.
What the-
I felt a shock around my neck. Reflexively, I brought my hands to my neck to check what caused the shock and suppress it. My hands touched cold metal and another shock ran through my body, dispersing my thoughts. I laid in confusion as strange buzzing and complex mixes of sounds covered my hearing. I struggled to sit up. My back tingled with static electricity, making my feelings all distorted. It took all my concentration and effort to finally sit up. But when I did, I sucked in a ragged breath. All around me, ice covered any surface it reached.
The bed, walls, floor, and ceiling were all covered. Almost ten or so bodies were either stuck frozen to the ground or lying unconscious.
What happened here? ...I did this, didn't I? I thought and examined my body. I wore new clothes: a black jacket with white underclothes, the long white sleeves rolled up to show IVs and other wires clipped to my body, snaking and disappearing beneath my clothes. I also wore black pants and shoes to match my top. I was surprised I even had new clothes. But, rather than paying attention to that, I turned my attention to the more dire situation. Where am I?
I took note of my surroundings. The room looked like a surgical operation room of some sort considering the technology equipped all around.
I was in an operation? I thought.
I tried to remember ever being dragged in for such a possibility, but nothing came to mind. The last thing I remembered was Triton escaping. What happened after that? I wasn't sure.
I slowly slipped off the frozen bed to the icy ground. My shoes made a crisp clinking sound as I made contact with the ground. The IVs and other attached monitors fell off as I stood up, giving not much of a fight to stay on my body. In the background, the heart monitor go monotone from the disconnection. Other monitors had gone flat across different screens. I looked over at the surgeon desk of medical tools and saw it too was covered with ice, making the paperwork on it illegible.
But the ice provided a semi-distorted mirror of myself. My skin was pale, the black jacket contrasting off of it like keys of a piano. My silver hair was messy and tangled, a pain I planned to deal with later. My wings were clipped, probably from the operation or whatever that was, which reminded me of why I was looking at the desk in the first place. I needed knowledge.
How do I find out what’s going on? I bit my lips.
I looked around the white walled room, spotting a surveillance camera staring right at me from its spot tucked in the corner of the room above the frozen shut door.
I considered trying to get footage of what happened while I was unconscious when a bang sounded on the door.
Muffled shouts from the other side snapped me into focus.
“This is the room!”
“C’mon, have the guns ready. We need to get her under control.”
“Lock and load, blast it!”
I brought my arms into a cross to weakly shield myself as the door blew down. I staggered back against the wall and unleashed ice in instinct. Icicles rose from the already frozen ground, impaling some of the men charging in.
Unfortunately it looked like the men were armored with clothes resistant to my ice, not freezing or actually feeling pain.
Next came the darts. There were too many as the men just sprayed their dart guns at me while surrounding me. I felt them find target from tail tip to ear tip.
There was no way I could fight them all. How could I? Yet, all the same I summoned more ice as a barrier to their attacks. But, to my dismay, another man charged in with some other gun and shattered my fragile boundary between safety and demise. Sensing the narrowing possibility of survival, I prepared another wall, making the run for the door just as my first barrier broke. When I heard the complete shattering of the wall, I summoned another wall, this time only halfway around so I could slip out through the hole in the wall.
As I made a break for the outside, I saw a man in a white lab coat walk into the room. A scientist.
He appeared surprised as he reflexively grabbed a firm hold of my arm and twisted it to cause me to fall. As I hit the ground, I heard the scientist say. “Well, well, Soraka. You pass.”
He let go and planted a foot on my back. “Pass me the tranq. I’m disappointed in you all.”
I merely closed my eyes and accepted my fate. Next, I felt the sharp point of cold metal plunge into the back of my neck. My senses fuzzed and dulled. The blur of words in the background faded into nothing.
 
Hawk
“Alright” She muttered, looking down at the ground.
I listened to Aki announce further directions to the group up ahead.
Just as we caught up, Tigerlily exclaimed, “Hawk, my mother.. where's my mother?!”
I felt my heart jump. Crap, she's missing?
“She's probably with the others,” I suggested. “But…”
I saw Aki descend to us.
“What's wrong?” The blonde hybrid asked.
“Do you know if Elizabeth is up ahead?” I immediately asked.
Aki bit her lips, looking uncertain. “I think I saw her in the midst of the group, but I’ll take a better look. Try checking from the back to the middle of the group. I’ll check from front to mid and meet up with you.”
With that, she flew off, her white wings contrasting off the blazing woods all around.
“C’mon, let’s find your mother,” I led Tigerlily through the group, looking right and left for the older woman.
 
Aki
As I was searching for Tigerlily’s mother, a gunshot sounded over the flames. I paused to look back. Blue lightning ripped the sky apart in the distance.
Worry clouded my eyes. Faolan, you didn't go down, did you?
I saw the group beneath begin to stir at the commotion of the battlefield.
“Everyone, keep going!” I shouted for them to keep moving forward. “We were given this chance to escape, so use it!”
I glance back at the distancing fire. Make it back soon.

Faolan

~general view~

Faolan opened his eyes after the gun had gone off, wait, he opened his eyes, he was not dead!? Faolan heard the sound of a body hitting the ground and watched as the Soldier lowered the gun from where it had been pointing at Harkness's head. The man lay dead on the ground with a small hole in his head, the blood that came out soaked into the ground. Faolan looked up at the Soldier and the Soldier looked back at Faolan, black and white on opposite sides as always. The Soldier knelt down next to Faolan and pulled a knife from his belt and cut Faolan's ties. The Soldier replaced the knife on his belt, it held up the tight fitting cargo pants the scientists had made just for him out of fire proof material, and stood up. He looked over Harkness and thought.

Faolan exercised his jaw and rubbed his wrists, "Father?" he called to the Soldier. The Soldier stooped down, picked up Harkness's rifle and took the holster for the pistol and stood back up, he looked into Faolan's eyes. Something shimmered in the Soldier's eyes, the father came back momentarily, "go, don't let me see you again" the Soldier told Faolan before he turned to return to the vans.

-Faolan-

I watched my father leave not knowing what had just happened. One second I was staring down the barrel of a pistol and the next I watched the human fall to the ground, dead. I lamely stood up, I ached all over and I had several cuts, my father's venom had almost worn off. I saw that there was a decent hole above the vans and thankfully my wings were the only part of me that was not injured -I had not attacked my father's wings so he had not attacked mine, natural dragon honor- so I got ready to fly. I clutched my aching side with the opposite arm, got a barely minimum run up, and took off into the sky above the hunters heads and went looking for my fellow escapees. My flight was labored and jerky, one though kept me going though, I promised Aki I would find her again, and with that I flew on, using my heat vision off and on to try and spot the hybrids.

-The Soldier-

He walked back into the group of hunters, not really knowing how they would react to the death of Harkness but he knew few would dare attack him in revenge. He walked through the now silent hunter without an air of worry or any emotion for that matter, he was The Soldier again. He secured the gun in between his wings and noticed a hybrid that had been captured, one of the escapee's and a traitor to the domestics, Amelia, she was one of the high risk problems that his mission statement had given him. The Soldier walked over to the hunters who were with her and just looked her over, face blank and emotionless, she was completely restrained, no doubt to be transported back and terminated by the high lady herself, Cora.

The Soldier was curious how Amelia would react to seeing the goal of the Dome project before her. It was also a slight distraction for him as he waited for the hunters to realize what had happened.

I heard a commotion outside the van. The sound of jeers and cheers told me the ambush probably ended, but I felt something terrible had happened. Then a gunshot came.
I immediately tried to get up and open the van door and see what had happened, but immediately felt restraints keeping my arms bound behind my back by some cuffs. I staggered back against the van wall or of loss of balance and then back into my seat. Looking down, I saw that my ankles apparently were bound as well by chains.
When did this happen? I thought.
I flashed back to when I was led to the van. Darn, on while I was getting on, that girl must’ve placed those chains. So subtle, it was. Notice until now, I didn't even.
A sudden shot rang and all went still and silent. I didn't dare wonder what happened, only hoping to escape the warfare soon.
 
Serephina
((Waiting on Sele, I believe))
I left the war zone behind and slowed to a trot. Above, I noticed a strange wave of orange. That's strange, none of the trees had leaves that color.
Then the smoke came. I returned my gaze to the canopy, taking a better look.
Wait, those aren't leaves. Those are burning leaves! The woods are on fire!
I held in a gasp. Need to get out of here and find the others.
I scanned the area with my echolocation, sending a high pitched click to sense for the rest of the escapees.
But what I picked up wasn't a group. I sucked in a breath at my sight.
 
Unknown
The boy’s lungs burned, his gills ached. His body in general churned against the current as he aimed for his destination on the coast which was coming to view.
I’m almost there. Just a little further, the boy encouraged himself to keep going.
His vision was blurry, but it didn't matter. He felt lightheaded. But wasn't that normal from such a long swim? He would have time to rest after he delivered the message. Time to be with her.
The boy kicked harder against the water as he swam for shore. The coral reef was just a blur of many colors. He watched the land round upward. The surface was coming closer. When his hand finally touched the rough grains of sand, he let out a gasp, emerging from the water. His silver, iridescent hair glinted a rainbow of colors off the rays of sunlight shining down.
Panting heavily, the boy struggled to get up from the water. His arms shook as he heaved himself up. A little further…
A blur of orange above the green of the forest before him just beyond the beach and the faint smell of smoke reached him just as the world went dark around him.

I'm back!!!

(( Since I haven't really been reading any of the posts on Hunted (I've just been skimming) im going to vaguely speed through what's happened until my characters get to where everyone is right now. If I get anything wrong correct me in Pm. Once I'm done with my catch-up posts I'm going to read everything (well almost everything) that you guys have posted so far so I can get a better grip on what's happening and what has happened ))

 

~Sea Fern the Octopus-Cuttlefish-Seagull hybrid~

((This is kind of a summary of what happened to Sea Fern after she left the other hybrids/while the other hybrids were running away from the Dome)) 
Sea Fern was swimming in a stream that she had found a few minutes after leaving the Dome. She was heading down stream to (she hoped) the ocean. Suddenly the dark water around her seemed to get even darker,she surfaced and saw that she was in the entrance to a cave which the stream ran into. Rats! The stream continued under ground. She couldn't see in the dark,how was she supposed to see where she was going? There wouldn't be any moonlight to gide her in the cave,she could get stuck or worse! 'But I've got to get back to the ocean' Sea Fern thought. She could breathe under water,she'd be fine,she tried to convince herself. She dived back under the water and slowly swam into the cave. She followed the current for a minute or two,until she bumped into a wall 'huh?' she thought,'why did the current stop?' But then Sea Fern realized that the current hadn't stopped,the water must be going through a hole that she was to small to fit through. She felt around for a bit until she discovered a hole. She stuck her arm in to the hole and felt her arm feathers being pulled by a current,it was definitely the right way to go,but how was she going to get through the hole? Sea Fern pushed her head into the hole,followed by her shoulders and torso,but she couldn't quite fit,she struggled a bit until,finally she got all of herself through the hole 'Thank you octopus and cuttlefish DNA!' She thought. Luckily the hole widened up and it was easier to swim. A little while of swimming later she swam out into a moonlit above ground river and she could see the ocean in the distance "Yes!" Sea Fern cried out in happiness "I'm almost home!" She swam the rest of the way to the ocean and then she started looking for familiar land (or sea in this case) marks... She didn't find any "well ill just have to find some then" she said to herself. Sea Fern started swimming away from land and she swam until a couple days later she started seeing familiar sea marks. Then she saw something that filled her with joy,the reef that she lived in! "That means...!" She looked around until she spotted what she was looking for "Seagill!" She shouted. The blue,purple and gold seahorse swam over to her,bubbles coming out of his snout happily "I'm happy to see you too Seagill!" Sea Fern said chuckling. Seagill swam up and settled in the tentacles on Sea Fern's he.ad. Then Sea Fern start swimming back the way she had came 'I'm going to find those other hybrids' she thought,she didn't really know why she wanted to find the other hybrids,it's not like she was their friend or anything,but she was going to find them none the less. A few days later they arrived back where the stream met the ocean. 'I sure hope the other hybrids didn't go too far inland' she thought. I'll wait here for a few days and if they don't show up along the coast l guess I'll have to go look for them... maybe. 
 
(( Sea Fern is currently lounging in the ocean near a river (there's also a beach by where the river meets the ocean) wondering if the other hybrids will show up ))

The Doubles: One day I logged on to SD and most of my dragons had glitched out of their stables. I then got three of the notices that you get when you earn/train a dragon in one of the expansions,one said I had gotten a Groncicle,one said I had gotten a Deathsong and the last one said I had gotten a Armorwing. I thought they were my original Deathsong,Groncicle and Armorwing that I had been re-given and so I named them the same names as my originals. I was upset because the original three dragons had disappeared and the new ones were not the same. My original Armorwing,Deathsong and Groncicle were still displayed in my dragon list,but I could not make them active. I eventually figured out how to make the original three active through stable quests and then I placed each of them in a stable and everything was back to normal... Well except for the three extra dragons that I had gotten. 

 

Doubles: 

Iceberg the Groncicle adult male 

Sheld the Armorwing adult male 

Laluby the Deathsong adult female(I call her Limelight)

Scytha,Baske.

~Scytha~

 
Scytha watched the other hybrids as they gathered food,watched out for attackers or just chatted. Scytha thought back to the past several days. She remembered when the hybrid know as Sea Fern had found her and said that she had a way out of the Dome, Sea Fern had not seemed like a Domestic and Sea Fern had had other hybrids with her,so Scytha had simply nodded her he.ad and followed Sea Fern. When the hybrids Amelia Rose and Jake had rushed out of the tunnels Scytha had followed them and she had watched unfazed as Jake was killed,his death was sad,but ironically,death was a part of life. When they had left the Dome she had also watched silently from the trees as Fae was killed and then saw the hybrid Magnus discover Fae and then walk away father into the Dome,most likely to his death or capture. Scytha had then looked at the the trees on the other side of the Dome barrier,she was almost... disappointed to be leaving this place. When she was in the Dome,the Domestics had hunted her so they could bring her in for testing,but she was also hunting them,silently watching them,it was a wonderful game of cat and mouse. Sometimes she would go willingly to be tested,the testing made her stronger and was rather easy once you got used to it,the only part that Scytha really hated were the testing rooms that had water based obstacles since she could not swim. Oh well,better to be free out in the wild then captive in the Dome,she had then turned around and slowly walked away after the others. 
Scytha had spent the few days between escaping the Dome and now,hunting for food and giving it to the other hybrids,a few of which had shot her creeped out looks,most likely creeped out by her appearance and silence. She was currently standing in the trees watching the other hybrids. She turned and walked a little ways from the group until she spotted something red in the trees,moving closer Scytha saw that it was a wild apple tree. She reached up with her praying mantis claws/arms and stabbed a bunch of apples on the sharp edge of her claw/arm,she then did the same with her other claw/arm and headed back to the group with the apples.The omnivorous and herbivorous hybrids would most likely be glad to eat some fruit. A lizard like hybrid came up to her and started asking questions "Oooh! Hi you look cool! Your all buggy! Those apples for everybody?! Your claw things are sooo cool looking,what sort of hybrid are you?!" The lizard hybrid said. Scytha said nothing and just held out an apple laden claw towards the hybrid,who she believed was the energetic lizard hybrid Baske that she had heard a few hybrids talking about. Baske grabbed an apple and continued asking her questions. Baske reminded her of the little lizards she use to catch and eat... Scytha shook her he.ad to clear it,dumped the apples in a pile and then walked back into the trees.  
 
~Baske~
Baske watched as the buggy hybrid walked away after dumping the apples at her feet. Baske shrugged and walked over to a large hybrid with thick looking skin and a horn on his forehead ((The rino hybrid that Sea Fern found)) and started asking him questions. In the past few days Baske had mostly been asking lots and lots of questions to the many hybrids. Baske saw a more interesting hybrid and ran toward them and,of course started asking questions.

Rita Ritz,Mr. Ritz(Rita's uncle),Baske,Scytha.

(( Your probably wondering why I'm posting a bunch of separate posts instead of just one big one. The reason: It's easier on me to do separate posts :) ))

 

~Rita Ritz~ 

The last few days had been hard,some of the weaker hybrids had to be carried some of the way,on the forth day they had stopped to rest for the night in an area next to a river. It was now morning. Rita was walking towards a small pile of meat that some other hybrids had collected,she had woken up about an hour before and was now going about getting some breakfast. She had just started eating when she heard a commotion near the river,a hybrid with curly horns and shiny wings was talking to Faolan,Rita didn't remember seeing the hybrid before. Whatever was going on,Hawk,Aki and Faolan seemed to be handling it so Rita went back to eating. A few minutes later a golden flame appeared on her hand,she tried to snuff it out,but she couldn't,she heard a sound like a gong. Rita looked around and she saw that the hybrid that had been by the river was most likely causing the flame,she started to walk over to them when her uncle walked up to her "Why did my hand just light on fire? And why was it gold?" Her uncle asked. "That hybrid over there I believe" Rita answered. Suddenly the mysterious hybrid produced a blue cane and top hat made out of fire as well as the name 'Lucy' appearing over her head in the same colour fire. 

 

~Scytha~ 

Scytha started as one of her claw lit up in a small gold blaze. She had been watching the others from the trees and saw everyone else had a similar flame. It didn't take long to find the source of the uniquely coloured fire,a hybrid who,in blue flames,announced herself as Lucy. 'A hybrid with potent magic,how interesting' Scytha thought. 

 

~Baske~ 

A gold flame suddenly lit up on her hand,at first she had tried to put the fire out,but after discovering that the fire didn't hurt she had just looked at it until it went out. "Huh, wonder what that was" she said,but forgot about it as she saw a hybrid she hadn't talked to yet and went to talk to them.

 

 

Then the shooting started. 

 

Tranq darts zoomed through the air and Baske hid behind a tree.

The fishy hybrid from the tunnels appeared and started to fight Faolan. 

 

~Rita Ritz~ 

"AMBUSH!!!" Someone called as tranquilizer darts started flying through the air. Rita saw Faolan fighting the lobster-shark hybrid from the tunnels in the Dome,she would of gone to help him,but she was facing her own dilemma at that moment... She couldn't find her uncle! She looked around frantically for him,dodging darts. She saw Baske hiding behind a tree,at least the frilled-necked lizard hybrid had enough sense to take cover. Rita couldn't find her uncle anywhere. 

 

Then Aki lit the area around them on fire. Most likely on accident,but that didn't make it any less deadly. Rita finally spotted her uncle and ran over to him. As a white dragon hybrid battled Faolan,Aki told everyone to run by the river away from the fire and hunters. Rita and her uncle ran after the other hybrids.

 

~Scytha~

She was watching the fight from the shelter of the trees,trying to decide whether to join in or not. Then she saw the Phoenix hybrid Aki accidentally set fire to a tree while fighting a group of enemy hybrids,the rest of the surrounding foliage soon went up in flames as well. She went along with the rest of the hybrids,running from the fire near the river.

 

~Rita Ritz and her uncle~

As they were running Rita looked back in case any hybrids were lagging behind,but she couldn't see anything through the smoke.

Then they heard a gunshot.

Rita looked at her uncle and he looked at her,there was nothing they could do,neither of them was fire proof,they continued along the river. She hoped none of the hybrids on their side had been badly harmed.

 

~Baske~ 

Everyone was running as the trees and bushes burned,Baske ran away from the flames. She ran into the trees. She heard a commotion up ahead "Hey!" She shouted,running into a small clearing. Baske stopped when she saw that she was surrounded by vans and humans as well as some hybrids. She failed to notice that most of the humans were carrying tranq guns. "Hi! Who are you guys?!" She asked,tilting her head in question. One of the humans raised their gun and shot a dart at Baske. Baske looked down at the dart that was now protruding from her shoulder,she looked back up at the human who had shot her. She stumbled backwards,she was already starting to feel woozy. She tried to run away,but was hit with another dart. She fell over forwards and everything went black. (Baske is then loaded into a random van).

Xenophon ~ Mostly Ghost Mantis with an hint of Budwing mantis

♪ Xenophon ♪

After his nightmarish episode Xenophon had moved back up into the tree, nestling up amongst the higher, spindly branches. Even though his camouflage resembled a giant dead leaf more than anything, his dark brown coloring had proven itself useful amongst the branches. He recalled his thorough training with a shiver, the events preparing him more for being the prey rather than the hunter..

He realized he'd let his mind wander and decided not to do that. Swaying gently to mimic the swaying of the tree branches, he held his scythes out as if they were part of the tree, awaiting patiently for an ignorant bird to settle down right within his grasp. A wave of his antenna caused him to glance over his shoulder, though, as he caught an odd signal that he hadn't sensed in such a broad scale before.

"Smoke?" Xenophon thought, waving his antenna back and forth regularly. He could see just in the distance bright orange forks flicking up around the foliage. He'd seen human travelers create such colors over pieces of wood and hold branches over them with various forms of food on the ends, but never had he seen it on such large scale. He leaned up against the trunk of the tree, placing one of his front feet against it and waving his antenna. The lights intimidated him, and he knew they meant trouble, but still he sensed something else very close by them. He swiveled his head and noticed with a start a river running by a ways away. Their signals were stronger over there. Xenophon buzzed his wings, feeling troubled by all of this.

"Newcomers.. bring the smoke, it seems..." He thought. He'd had enough of this. Xenophon prepared his wings and glided down from tree to tree, staying just ahead of the lights as they appeared to grow nearer, all the while the strange group of signals growing stronger as well.

((Overall hunter POV))

They'd had a pretty good mission so far. Caught special hybrid escapee to satisfy the deranged Cora, shots were fired, escapee leader captured, most blokes made it out just fine, until a gunshot rang throughout the forest. Mostly everyone paused, as this was a search and capture mission, not a red one. A few minutes after the Soldier strode out through the clearing, a familiar gun strapped to his back. Nobody responded, partly to fear of being shot, partly to receive confirmation.

Then a private, new kid just transferred over, came rushing in very flustered like. "Capt's dead! He was shot!" The air crackled with tension. Some knew who'd done it immediately, but didn't take action. It was a few minutes of silence before a man walked out. "Fall back, Harkness was in charge! Plus, we have prisoners to turn in.." Everyone glanced at him, then a few shrugged shoulders later and most were packing up. A few noticed a hybrid come in but didn't do much. What could they do? Anything after mission's called off is above their paygrade, after all. Vans were loaded and a few were still loading in and after that, it was back to HQ. Eventually someone stepped up to the plate and tranqued her, loading her up in the vans with the rest of the gear and prisoners.

((There, fixed. Also it's fine you got yourself captured, nameless hunters are for anyone to use.))

Amelia and ???~

((I think I'm starting to get writer's block. Also, please let Amelia be captured. I have a plan for her that involves bringing in this stranger being mind-controlled))

 

Amelia~

 

Shortly after the shot rang out, a dragon hybrid I had only seen data on walked forward to examine me. I kept still, staring back into his wizened eyes, currently unclouded from the memory block I knew had been placed on his mind. The gun slung onto his broad back made me nervous, as I had already seen the other hybrid's reactions towards me. 

 

'He also might have shot someone already. Who's to say I'm not next?' I pondered, waiting for something to happen. 

 

Then, something did happen. A clear voice cut through the heavy silence, informing the enemy hybrids that their captain was dead- shot in the head, it seemed. Moments later another voice commanded to fall back, and turn in what few prisoners they had. With this, I was yanked forward once more, past the doctor and strait into a van. A few hybrids piled in, including the injured bird-girl from the woods earlier, before the doors were shut and our van was off. 

 

'Well, if there was any chance of escape, it's gone now.' I depanned to myself, looking around the van to see if I could find anything to break the restraints- or at least get this horrid rope away from my brilliant orange wings. 

 

I was heavily guarded on all sides and angles, and the only thing I saw that could be useful in the van was a small bit of broken mirror. I sighed, giving up. All I could do was wait and hope for a miracle. 

 

 

???~

 

The information on the Hunting party was massive. A few microchipped hybrids dead, many injured, and several human soldiers missing. 

 

My misshapen hands clicked away at the keys, logging everything into the blindingly bright screen of the computer. I couldn't think, as always, until something unusual happened: the power cut out. 

 

The buzzing ceased, the computer went dark, and I was left- free. But I couldn't do anything. My mouth still whispered words and codes that weren't there, my hands still typing the most common sequences I knew about, my eyes still twitching across a black screen, my mind blank. 

 

Then everything flooded in. 

 

All my independent thoughts came crashing through my brain, overwhelming me with information about my own life. Escape plans I had perfected, once drown out by the white noise, now came flooding back along with urges to run. I finally knew my own name, my family, my best friend. It was too much, and distantly I heard myself screaming as clips of memories flitted in and out of my consciousness. 

 

My name was Cromex. I was once human. I lived on the shores of a beach, near a huge city. My father died, my mother once engaged to another before they knew of my sister. My sister wasn't supposed to happen, and he left us alone. My sister's name was Perlac. She was supposed to be sold and sent away. I couldn't let that happen. We hid- four of us. Two others with us. They found us, and we were all taken. My mother died fighting to save me, but not my sister. We were mutated and trained but I fought. I was given a headset to control me. It broke and I went comatose. I was given a new one, sent here to stay. My sister was broken by THEM. And I was stuck. The rest of us were stuck. Trapped. Sentenced to death if we rebelled. 

 

My throat was raw from screaming, and my lungs ached for air, but I had no control over my body. I never did, never could, can't anymore without help. They ruined me, they ruined everybody. 

 

Ripped from these clippets of memory, the power suddenly came back on. Instantly I was sent away to work, remembering how to breath, how to function. The buzzing drowned out my clarity, but one memory remained. One that hadn't been snatched away just yet. I let it take over, the greys and blacks melting into color as I relived another time, long ago, with my best friend. 

 

~Memory~

 

Tiny feet pattered along the shore, following the twin trails of larger footsteps that were gradually being washed away by the tide. Small giggles errupted from the smiling mouth of a girl, who looked to be no older than three, at the most. 

 

"C'mon Perlac! You can do it!" I called to the toddler, arms stretched forward to catch her when she reached us. 

 

Perlac's wavy golden hair streamed behind her as she dashed, hopped, and leaped into my arms. I abruptly stood and swung her around, earning a squeal of joy from my baby sister. I joined her in her laughter before placing her back on the golden sand, warm from the bright rays of sunshine. Suddenly, a spray of water droplets suprised us both, and a deeper chuckle sounded from behind us. We both turned, I smiling and Perlac hiding behind me- she hadn't quite grown used to Lu just yet. My purple-haired friend smiled, black wings folded neatly behind them as they summoned another bubble of water, which burst shortly after and showered the three of us. Perlac squealed and I laughed, shielding myself with my arms, which were tanned from years spent on the beach. 

 

"Glad to see you're enjoying your true element." I commented. 

 

Lu smiled, mild fangs showing as they pulled out a smaller bubble- this one with a tiny golden fish inside -and presented it to Perlac. My baby sister quickly overcame her shyness of the hybrid, curiosity about the fish replacing it. 

 

"Fish." She exclaimed, poking at the bubble with one tiny finger. Despite her age, where other young ones loved to explore new words, my sister preferred to keep things short and simple, instead speaking with her facial expressions. It worried me slightly, but so far it didn't seem like a problem. 

 

The aquatic creature swam about the bubble in a panic before settling down, watching my sister with big eyes, fins keeping it still. Perlac giggled again, backing away as Lu replaced the fish in the ocean. 

 

"I still can't do much with it, so maybe it isn't my true element after all." They explained. I nodded sympathetically. 

 

"Maybe it has something to do with..." I trailed off, staring at another figure up on a hill, watching us with curiosity and fascination. 

 

Lu sighed, a bit frustrated. 

 

"We both know I'm a bit jealous, but it couldn't possibly be-" 

 

~Memory end~

 

It ended sharply, like the end had been sliced away with a knife and stolen from my mind. My lungs felt better, and I was tired. I let the commands roll over me, knowing full obedience was the closest thing to rest and sleep I would get.

Elizabeth And Tigerlily
Currently, I was in the middle of the fleeing group of hybrids which I think was a ba.d idea. I could hardly see over the shoulders of some of these hybrids that were in front me.. I felt a bit out of place in the mist of these hybrids, I'm like the only human here.. well.. no there's Rita's uncle.. so I can't say I'm the only one. 
 
As I'm in the mist of the hybrids keeping a good pace, I hear someone start announcing directions  "Everyone! Keep calm and head this way! Try not to stray from the river! The fire’s spreading quickly and we need to stick together. I’ll do a headcount. In the meanwhile, just keep heading down. If there’s anyone missing, please report to me.” I kept moving forward.. following the directions of whoever said it, I just hope my daughter's here in this group but exactly where is the question that I'm still pondering on.
 
---Tigerlily---
 
In my desperate state, I wanted to scream my mothers name.. but no.. I need to stay calm. With my mind focused on staying calm, Hawk spoke “She's probably with the others,” He suggested. “But…” Hawk didn't finish his thought when Aki descended to us "What's wrong?” She asked, I didn't even have to say anything.. Hawk spoke up fairly quickly.
 
“Do you know if Elizabeth is up ahead?” He immediately asked her. She bit her lip, looking uncertain "I think I saw her in the midst of the group, but I’ll take a better look. Try checking from the back to the middle of the group. I’ll check from front to mid and meet up with you.” At that, she flew off.. "Thanks Aki" I give her my gratitude for helping us search for my mother. 
 
“C’mon, let’s find your mother,” Hawk led me through the group of hybrids, we both looked right and left for my mother. 
 
---Elizabeth Trail---
 
As I'm calmly walking along side many hybrids, a gunshot sounded over the burning flames.. once that gunshot was heard, every hybrid began to stir/panic at the commotion of the battlefield. I was being pushed to the right getting close to the river's edge, I failed to realize how close I was getting to the river and by the time I realized that I was a inch away from falling in, it was too late.. a tall hybrid bumps into me in the commotion and I fell into the river *Splash!* 
 
The water rushed over my body; I quickly swim up to the surface with bag in hand and I just couldn't help myself but start to laugh at what just happened to me.  
 
((@Feather if you want you could have Hawk or Aki spot Elizabeth in the water))

The Hunter/Soldier

He calmly looked over my shoulder when a newer looking hunter announced that Harkness was dead, The Soldier was back fully, the father dragon was forced back into the darkness of the subconcious, there only to keep The Soldier from going feral. He looked back at Amelia, he could tell she was nervous with him there, unerving people kept them from doing rash things, fear was a good controler if you did not have memory eradiaction tech.

The Soldier shufled his wings and left Amelia to be loaded up at the words of another human who called for a retreat. The Soldier was to big to fit in the van and knew things might not end well if he rode inside so he hopped on the back of the van that happened to be transporting Amelia and held on for the ride back, he normally would fly back but he stayed with the convoy just incase and he was not in a decent shape to fly long distances, the rebel leader had put up one heck of a fight, like father, like son his subconcious quietly said.

 

~?~

What do you call double agent who is one for both sides? A triple agent? A well tongued spy? A man out for himself? I would prefer to be called a well tongued spy. Through me the UN learned about the hybrid project but also through me the scientists knew that the UN greatly dissaproved of the project but would not dare to intefere with the, essetially, "super soldier" project for fear of the soldiers that would come out of the place and destroy the UN. I worked for the UN as a scientific referance and a scietist for the hybrid project; both sides knew I was a double agent but both thought I worked for them alone but unfortunately for both sides I worked more for myself.

I had been storing info on both sides hybrid testings on an experimental organic chip for my own purposes, blackmail for safety in the case of a war. In being the "double agent" I was the UN did not know of the escaped hybrids and the Hybrid project people did not know of the few hybrids that the UN were training.

I breathed deeply in my new lab, given to me after the failure of The Dome, and pushed the plunger on the rather large needle in my leg. It contained an expieremental concoction that would prevent the memory erase that the scientists here had created to control many of their hybrids now and it would be the main part of the Soldier program when it went full scale, the sad thing was that the ingrideiants were hard to procure and it would ki,ll anyone already under the control of the m.e.

I bit my lip, the injection site hurt but it would keep me being myself, in theory. I tossed the used needle into my personal incinirator, no evidence. One thing I had apart of me that the hybrid scientists had "given" me was a micro pump that ran along my spine. It used to be filled with a poison that would be a fail safe in case of treatchery on my part, now it was filled with a concentrated form of python and water mocison DNA thanks to the people of the UN -the dna replacement was my idea-.

I was happy with my alteration and with my now shielded mind I walked out of my room and down the halway to continue the work I was "hired" to do with the other scientists.

((this guy might come back, Idk though, just a board blank character))

Introducing,for the first time ever... Mystery!

When the sirens had gone off in the Dome,announcing the failure and shutdown of the facility,Mystery had simply pressed her ears back against her head to block out the horribly irritating sirens (She still ended up with a headache though) and followed the scientists. They had soon set her to the task of hunting down the escaped hybrids,Mystery had nodded silently and flew off in the direction that the scientists had said the escaped hybrids had gone.

Mystery was now sitting in a tree watching the other hunters fighting the escapees. She thought maybe she should fire off a couple of arrows to add to the chaos,but opted to just watch instead. Then the Phoenix hybrid set the trees on fire. The blaze quickly spread to more and more trees. 'Idiots! They could burn the whole forest down!' she thought. She could see that the majority of the escapees were running away along the river. Mystery looked up at the sky,it was starting to cloud over a bit... maybe it would start raining. Mystery flew out of her tree top hiding place and swooped up into the clouds,out of sight.

Hawk

Upon the sound of a gunshot, the group was thrown into panic for a moment. I could hear Aki making a desperate attempt to keep the group calm and collected. It took a while for the escapees to get their act together and continue going along.
As I progressed through, I heard some laughter similar to Elizabeth’s voice.
Following the sound of laughter, I arrived at the river bank to see Tigerlily’s mother floating above the water’s current.
I raised an eyebrow, but quickly covered my surprise.
Looking to Tigerlily, I smiled softly. “Looks like we found your mother.”
Bending down, I offered a hand to Elizabeth. “I think you may wanna get it before you’re swept away or catch pneumonia.”

Lucy~

((Last post has been edited and finished, and the memory bit holds a few clues))

 

I started awake, the images of others playing on the beach fading as reality replaced it. I stood, stretching out my sore muscles and limbs before looking around. The fire had spread more, and I heard the distinct sound of cars driving away in the distance. I could feel my magic had released the three hybrids from my hold, probably to be sent away with the others. A small pile of medical supplies, three pocket-sized dart guns, ammo for said guns, and pocket knives sat next to me. 

 

'Well, at least that whole show wasn't a complete waste.' I thought to myself as I picked up the supplies.

 

'Now, where is everyone?' I wondered, eyeing the abandoned campsight.

 

I couldn't fly while carrying everything, since it would throw me off balance and I would probably drop half of it while searching. Instead, I started walking in the direction of the river, hoping they were still there or hadn't gotten too far away without me. A few minutes later, I was next to the stream's shore, a trail of many footprints leading away from where everyone had been. I started walking, using my tail to smudge out the trail and buy us more time in case others came looking for us. I couldn't do much about the scent, unless I splashed the entire area with water, which I had no energy left to do. 

 

And so I proceeded, humming a little tune as I brushed away the evidence of the group's travel until I came across the group itself. Inumerable hybrids traveling in a messy line, some paniced while others looked shell-shocked from the whole ordeal with the hunters. I saw Hawk help a women who had fallen into the river, pulling her out from the brisk water. 

 

"Hawk!" I called out, dashing forward. 

 

"I have supplies from the Hunter's camp." I said, nodding to the various things I held. 

 

"What should I do with them?" I asked.

Amelia and Lillith~

((More development stuffs))

 

 

Lilith~

 

A hybrid had found me in the woods and carried me back to the vans. I was examined and my burns treated- very luckily, nothing worse than burns and the occasional muscle spasm remained after the electric attack. I could move again, although more stifly, and I should be completely fine soon enough. 

 

I was put in the same van as a hybrid who's scent I reconized- they had been spying on me when I was down. She seemed to be staring again now, and I clicked my beak before commenting. 

 

"It's rude to stare." I squawked at the red-head, glaring at her through my goggles. 

 

 

Amelia~ 

 

I started when I realized I had been staring at the bird hybrid. She eyed me, her eyes covered by her goggles and hiding her emotion. I had a guess at what it was from her tone, however.

 

"Sorry, I just... I'm thinking about what will happen to me." I told her, honest. If I was about to hideshortly, what was the point in lying about simple things like this?

 

 

General POV~ 

 

Lilith scoffed, tapping her claws on the metal floor as she responded. 

 

"What will happen is pointless. You live, you die, nothing new under the sun. If you served the purpose you were meant to serve, it doesn't matter." She exclaimed, voice emotionless and monotone as if stating and obvious fact. 

 

Amelia frowned, and the pair lapsed into uneasy silence. 

 

"I disagree." The butterfly hybrid finally spoke up, boldly voicing her thoughts. 

 

"A life isn't just about the purpose is serves- it's more about the choices the individual makes. Who they choose to be, to do, to become." 

 

Lilith spoke mere seconds later, already having thought of a refute to the other's argument. 

 

"What if a person chooses to be evil, to do wrong, to become an enemy to others?" She harshly inquired, fully turning to face Amelia now. 

 

Amelia's face hardened with resolve. 

 

"Well, at least they still had a choice. And who's to tell what good and evil really are? It's all perspective, isn't it? To a mouse, a cat is evil for hunting it down and taking it's life, when all it wants to do is live. To a cat, the mouse is simply the food it needs to survive, and there is no evil in killing it. Good and evil are boundaries set up by our mindset, social norms, and standards forced upon us. Wouldn't you at least like a choice to do what you want, instead of what you're told?" 

 

Lilith stood, furious. 

 

"If society's rules are what define good and evil, and are what gives true purpose to life- a real goal, instead of silly fantasies -than we should obey it. We shouldn't break it on the first whim, or base our logic off of the impossible dreams of delusional people. When we have a true goal, a reality to strive for, why should we abandon it for an illusion set up by hope? The 'choice' would be foolish." 

 

Amelia glared, growling slightly under her breath before shouting. 

 

"Dreams are better than serving a cruel oppressive reality that kills anything trying to stop it. Something that makes rules only to break them. Dreams and hopes are what allow change to happen, and let something better take control of one's life instead of following twisted rules and standards." 

 

The other hybrids in the van were becoming riled up, but didn't dare get in the way for fear of being attacked. 

 

"Well at least our cause doesn't switch sides and betray others, suddenly fighting a battle that's already lost!" 

 

"When I served Cora I betrayed dozens, just to keep them under control. I've killed, and watched others die, because of their influence!" 

 

"It's basic survival. The weak fail and the strong prosper." 

 

The pair were practically at each other's throats, Lilith hissing and Amelia growling before finally speaking again. 

 

"Have you ever had anyone you cared for, in your cold heart? Have you ever watched that person die? Seen the light leave their eyes and their breath falter for the very last time?" Amelia's tone was low and dangerous, her glare like a bullet, shot to kill. 

 

Lilith was about to reply when she faltered, a sudden memory struggling forth from the haze before she had become a hybrid. When she was... Human. A boy, someone she loved, falling to the ground in anguish. They took him away, and she fought. As soon at it had appeared, it was gone, leaving a bad taste in the hybrid's mouth. She backed away and sat, unnaturally still as Amelia waited for an answer, refusing to accept stony silence for victory. 

 

"I don't remember." The bird hybrid finally said, her usually blank and rough tone filled with emotion. For the first time in a long time, she actually sounded her age. 

 

Suprised, Amelia's anger melted away, leaving one thought in the front of her mind as the van continued on it's journey. 

 

'Maybe I can help her with that.'

The group continued to go on the run. I had to keep an eye on the back for anyone lagging behind while Mynah continued to lead from the front as I wished for. The stronger hybrids took turns carrying stragglers or weaker ones as they continued down along the stream.
Soon, they outpaced the fire, leaving the blaze behind. But the scent of smoke still reminded the escapees the hunters may still be onto them.
A while into the run, I began to worry about the ones who I hadn't seen since the flight from camp. Amelia, Baske, Ryu...and Faolan. I was reluctant to recount the names of those I knew who were missing. There were a couple others I didn't recognize by name who weren't seen. Guilt wrenched my heart as I soared higher into the sky, my white feathered wings feeling scattered droplets of water. Looking up, I saw the sky was clouded and turning gray- completely opposite of the morning’s optimistic air. Rain began to come down in a slight drizzle. The fresh scent of water masking the smoke made me relax a bit. At least the flames would be put off on their own by the heaven’s rain. At the same time, the rain would wash off their scent trail, preventing hunters from tracking them by smell. But I still had an foreboding sense that the hunters may still be on their trail.
A pang of longing for Faolan to be with me suddenly struck me. I glanced backwards, hoping to catch sight of black scales heading their way. But of course from my position, there was too much being blocked by trees to actually have a chance to spot the dragon hybrid.
I sighed and clutched a hand right above my heart. I began to consider heading back in search for Faolan and the other missing hybrids. I just feel so responsible for their safety. Why can't I be a better protector?
The rain began to fall harder, pulling me out of my thoughts. I let out a puff of flame which was quickly extinguished by rainwater. I suppose we need to find shelter in case the rain gets worse.
I looked ahead and saw the treeline coming up. Beyond that...was the beach. Looks like we’ve gone as far as we could for now. After all, I did promise Faolan that we’d be following the river.
I descended to the group and announced that we were going to rest. “Everyone, we’re stopping now! Make camp and settle down before the rain gets any worse.”

Faolan

I could barely keep my heat vision going for more than a few seconds at a time and it made my already shaky flight even more unstable. The distance I had flown was not a great one and if I was not in the shape I was in, it would be rather easy. I could tell a rib or two was cracked for I could not breath deaply without pain in my lower left rib cage, I also knew I was bruised and cut in several places but both were hard to locate besides feeling them.

Rain had begun to fall and it was making it really hard to fly and several times I had faltered dropping several feet before catching myself and forcing myself onward.

After my fight with my father my heart yearned for something it had not fealt for a long time, it yearned for some one, Aki. The image of her and keeping the other escapees safe kept me going no matter how dray my viosion got.

The sky seemed to open up and beat my wings down with a fury, almost like it did not want to share the sky with me any longer. I flicker my heat vision again, I did not expect to see anything for the past few hours I had seen nothing but the cold lines of the river; I saw a vast signiture that could only be a great body of water and that stopped my heart, did I miss them? fly right past them and did not see them? did the hunters find them again? These thoughts pounded in my head until I spied a heat signiture, then another and another, I've found them.

I let the rain pummel me out of the sky, I was done fighting it. My decent was ragged and choppy, I could barely keep myself form just falling out of the sky. I hit one tree branch, then another as I made a b-line for the hybrids. I was coming in a little to fast an my wings were failing, I was so tired.

My foot hit the ground in an attempt to do a run in landing but as soon as it did I just dropped like a stone to the ground, sliding a ways before coming to a dazed stop. I let out a groan and passed out.

Tigerlily And Elizabeth
Searching through the group of hybrids, a gunshot was heard through the burning flames. Once that sound was heard everything got a bit chaotic, hybrids paniced; it got a bit too chaotic for me.. I heard Aki making a desperate attempt to keep the group calm, it took a while until everyone calmed down and continued going along but at least her attempt worked out. 
 
Me and Hawk progressed through, I was still looking around but all I saw was hybrids, hybrids, hybrids.. this is like finding a needle in a hay stack, finding a doctor in the mist of so many hybrids is harder than it looks. I thought to myself that maybe I could sniff her out.. this part shouldn't be hard because my mother always smells like medication, so I began to sniff the air; the smells that I got were Dome hybrids, Domestic hybrids and one scientist, which I figured was Rita's uncle but I couldn't catch the smell of my mother.. uh weird. 
 
I had failed to noticed that Hawk started moved away from the middle of the group; Where is he going? I than focused my attention away from sniffing to hearing and I heard laughter? With Hawk as my crutch, I was just trailing along side him and soon we arrived at the river bank and guess who was floating on the surface of the water? It was my mother, laughing her a.ss off; I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.. ah.. my mother is ok and safe. 
 
"Looks like we found your mother.” I looked at Hawk, he had a soft smile on his face and he was looking at me. I smiled back "Thank goodness we did" I commented than looked back at my mother, I notice Hawk bend down and offer a hand to my mother "I think you may wanna get it before you’re swept away or catch pneumonia.”
 
---Elizabeth Trail---
 
Ah, I couldn't stop laughing. What just happened to me was so funny to me that all I could do was laugh and laugh but it wasn't until I caught sight of Hawk and my daughter on the river bank that I began to try to compose myself. Hawk bend down and helded out his hand to me "I think you may wanna get it before you’re swept away or catch pneumonia.” I immediately took hold of his hand "Yeah, I wouldn't want that now" I laughed because what he said at the end of his comment was a joke that I caught on to. 
 
As a doctor I knew what he meant by Pneumonia; Pneumonia is a lung inflammation caused by bacterial or viral infection, in which the air sacs fill with pus and may become solid. Inflammation may affect both lungs, one lung, or only certain lobes and since I was laughing like a crazy nut, he joked that if I keep laughing I just might catch Pneumonia. 
 
Well, the young lad pulling me out from the river and onto land. I was about to thank him for helping me out of the water but than someone called to him "Hawk!" I looked to see who it was and it was Lucy carrying a whole bunch of things dashing over to us "I have supplies from the Hunter's camp." She said, nodding to the various things she held "What should I do with them?" She asked, I placed my med bag on the ground than took off my lab coat and I started to squeeze the access water.
 
---Tigerlily---
 
My mother took hold of Hawk's hand "Yeah, I wouldn't want that now" She laughed than Hawk pulled my mother out from the river and onto dry land. I know I've been with my mother for sometime but I really didn't know what he might by Pneumonia but I just let it go.
 
Once my mother was out, someone called to Hawk and when I look it was Lucy "Hawk!" She called out, dashing forward "I have supplies from the Hunter's camp." She said, nodding to the various things she held on to "What should I do with them?" She asked him, I looked at my mother who placed her bag on the ground than took off her lab coat and started squeeze the access water she had gotten in the river. 
 
Then I felt water droplets hit my fur, I look up to find clouds overhead beginning to turn gray.. I bend my ears back because I heard something being announced "Everyone, we’re stopping now! Make camp and settle down before the rain gets any worse.” Upon hearing this I turned to my mother "Why don't you find a tree to shelter under before the rain gets worst. I'll be right there in a minute" I told my mother at which she nodded "Ok" She replied as she picked up her bag from the ground and lefted us in search of a tree for shelter from the rain. 
 
Once my mother lefted I returned my attention on Lucy and Hawk. It was quite surprising for me to see how much stuff Lucy managed to get from the Hunters camp because all I managed to get is one dart gun but these supplies that she got will do well in helping us fight off the Hunter's attacks.
 
But a sudden snapping sound of what sounded like tree branchs snapping grabbed my attention, when I look I saw a black figure falling then crashing onto the ground, sliding a bit before coming to a complete stop. My eyes widened as I realized who it was, Faolan "Oh My God" I placed my left hand over my mouth in shock.
 
"What the he.ll happened to him?" I thought as I stood frozen.

Rita Ritz & her uncle

As they were running from the fire and the hunters it started raining "Good" Rita said "That will put out the fire and hopefully deter the hunters" her uncle nodded. She looked up as she heard Aki calling for them to stop. 'Hmmm we are still rather close to where our confrontation with the hunters was,but hopefully the rain will stop them and cover our tracks' Rita said to herself. Suddenly she heard a crack and turned around to see a black hybrid falling through the trees. It didn't take long for her to realize it was Faolan and she raced over to where he was lying on the damp ground. It was obvious that he was pretty beat up,Rita saw lots of scratches and bruises,but at least he was alive. "Elizabeth" Rita said,standing up from where she had crouched next to Faolan "He's in pretty bad shape,can you help him?" Rita asked.

Xenophon ~ Ghost Mantis with a pinch of Budwing Mantis

((Rain, something I hadn't even thought of with Xenophon's phobia of water. This should be interesting.))

♪ Xenophon♪

The mantis hybrid buzzed from tree to tree, keeping a good distance away from the bright, smoky lights and somewhat coinciding with the group by the river. He was still a long distance away from them, but he could sense them from here. It was a great mass of large animals, seemingly fleeing the smoke with him. "Deer.. maybe running? Could be a good thing.. The smoke.. the hot lights.." Something was off about their scent and signature, though. He just couldn't tell what, though, not from where he was currently. Suddenly something struck one of his antenna, sending an unnerving blip of a signal.

Xenophon snapped his head up, denying what he was thinking. It couldn't possibly happen AGAIN could it? Another fleck struck him, this time against his leg. It registered as a small bit of pressure but he tried to deny it just the same. But, then it came down harder. Xenophon covered his head with his scythes, grumbling as he recoiled from the droplets.

"Noo.. not again.. water from the SKY w-what why.. this happen!?" Xenophon groaned, quickly shuffling down the tree to be protected by its canopy from the horrid phenomenon happening above. He sat there, huddled against the trunk for a solid ten minutes before he mustered up the courage to let go of it. "I.. don't see.. why water? Why ever?" Thought the mantis hybrid desperately as he unsteadily moved across the forest floor, pausing every gap in the foliage where the rain would get through. It had been nice and dry for so long, there was a real track record he had going. Nonetheless he moved on, albeit very slowly. At one point he stopped and focused on where the group of things were, the rainwater clearing their scent which made it harder for him to track them. However, he picked up other traces of their signals and managed to follow it.

Xenophon had slightly wandered from his curiosity of the group by the time he got near there, however the chittering sounds brought his attention and curiosity back on them. As he neared he shook gently, climbing slightly into the trees and waving with the branches. If this WAS prey, camouflage was key. If it WASN'T, then camouflage would help anyways. As he silently got situated in a bare spot amongst the branches he got a good look at the things he'd been following.

It was... surprising, to say the least. A huge group of human-like animal creatures were following the riverbanks, all talking and moving and odd. Xenophon thought back and recalled creatures like this. "Hybrids-", he'd heard they were called, "Human-like animals. Animal-like humans. Am I that?" He thought as he kept his eyes locked on them all. He figured he was. They were all so interesting.. and scary. "Why are they by the river? River is dangerous.. River is like the water from the sky.." Xenophon thought. Such a large group of them seemed unsettling. Were they taking over this place? He didn't know. He decided to recede into the shrubbery before one saw him.

After he pulled himself back away from the crowd, Xenophon chewed on one of his scythes and ran it over his head, hoping to keep the water off of him if he groomed enough. However, he caught signal of a deer, and his hunter instincts kicked in. He swayed back and forth, swivelling his head to see where the prey was. A ways away, deeper in the last bit of forest before it ended. Locking on target, the mantis hybrid slowly approached his prey, flying under its radar. He gradually emerged from the bushes and shrubs behind it, then..

SNAP! The deer struggled in his sharp clutches. He chewed thoughtfully on its neck, sharp incisors digging easily into its hide. After a bit of thoughtless eating, his human side pointed out the animal was still alive. Xenophon paused, a wave of shame coming over him. He did not like this feeling, nor did his practical side know why he felt it. However he felt compelled to swiftly end the animal's life before continuing. He just couldn't ignore these thoughts, even if these very thoughts are what got him so deeply in stress in the first place..

He sat, amongst the bushes and shrubs, shaking back and forth as he ate the limp deer clutched in his scythes, all the while thinking about why he let these things affect him so.

((Xenophon is open for the stumbling, which doesn't have to be immediate. Seeing how mantises eat, he'll probably be there a long while.))

✧ Aki ✧ Hawk ✧

Aki

As the group began to settle down in shelter from the rain and rest, I had asked for a few to keep watch in shifts. I then checked in on how some of the escapees were doing when suddenly there was a commotion.

Perking my ears in alarm, I looked towards the source of the noise to see a slumped black figure on the ground. Immediately, I knew who it was.

“Faolan!” I gasped.

Lucky I had finished my most recent conversation and wasn’t randomly leaving one, I ran over to his body which seemed to have crashed from the sky. I gently pushed past the group gathered around to kneel by his side. I hoisted him up into sitting position and skimmed the group for Tigerlily’s mother as I heard Rita ask for the medic to help.

In a hoarse voice, I asked as well. “Elizabeth, Faolan needs help now. Please do something...”

I was on the verge of tears. Seeing the dragon hybrid all wrecked and injured was almost too much for me.

 

Hawk

I helped Elizabeth out of the water just as I heard Lucy’s voice call out my name.

“Hawk!” The demon hybrid dashed over to me.

“I have supplies from the Hunter's camp.” She nodded to the various things in her arms. “What should I do with them?”

“I hope I don’t become the walking artillery,” I joked. “But, you look like you’re gonna eventually get toppled by all of that. Let’s share the load until we can find a better place or way to store them.”

Just then, the snap of some twigs caught my attention. A spy? I thought preposterously.

But when I looked up, I saw a black figure fall, unconscious to the ground with a thud. No, it’s Faolan!

Rita and Aki were almost immediately by his side. I watched from my spot as they called over for Elizabeth, who had just headed off to find suitable shelter from the rain. I silently picked up some load from Lucy with my right arm. With my hands full, I couldn’t exactly help. Not to mention, I had no experience in the medical department so I stayed put.

Elizabeth Trail
It wasn't hard finding shelter; I managed to find a unoccupied tree to shelter under from the rain. I had placed my med bag on the ground and as I was about to settle in, I heard some sounds of tree branchs snapping but honestly I thought that it was the burned down trees collapsing from the damage they endured from the flames.. so I really didn't pay much attention to it. 
 
But it wasn't until someone called my name that I turned around "Elizabeth" once I turned around I caught sight of a black hybrid on the ground, it was the leader.. Faolan. "He's in pretty bad shape,can you help him?" I heard Rita ask me in the distance, soon hybrids started to gather around Faolan which then I lost sight of him.. I didn't answer back, I just reacted quickly. 
 
I swiftly grabbed my med bag and I dashed over to the crowd. I carefully navigated through the group of hybrids in a rushed manner; again I heard another call for help  "Elizabeth, Faolan needs help now. Please do something...” forget it, I'm going to push my way through.. I began to excuse myself as I started pushing hybrids out of my way "I'm coming!" I anounced to those that were calling for help and soon enough I managed to get through the crowd and arrive at Faolan's side. 
 
Rita was standing nearby and Aki had Faolan in a sitting position, Faolan was bruised and cut in several different places. I dropped my med bag onto the ground than bend down next to Faolan; immediately I checked Faolan's pulse, I placed my middle finger and index finger on the side of his neck and I instantly felt a heart beat.
 
Once I checked his pulse, I reached into my bag and scrambled to find a little light and I managed to find it in one of the pockets my med bag had and once I had the light I opened one of Faolan's eyelids with my left hand and I flashed the light in his eye "Faolan, do you hear me?" I asked, I continued to flash the light in his eye but his pupils aren't reacting to the light.. he's completely passed out. 
 
At that I placed the light in my pocket than I placed my right ear close to his mouth so that I could hear his breathing.. ok he's breathing which is a good sign but.. something's off, his breathing sounds abnormal. With his breathing sounding abnormal, I started to feel Faolan's chest area mostly his rib cage; my gut tells me that maybe what's causing him to have abnormal breathing is because he could have a broken rib.. but yet again it could be something else but it was worth a try. 
 
I started at the top of his right rib cage and than made my way down. As I felt each rib I didn't find anything broken on his right side and at that point I was thinking that it couldn't be a broken rib but nevertheless, I moved to his left rib cage and I felt each rib and as I got lower I felt something.. something that felt cracked as I kept feeling his lower rib cage, I noticed that it wasn't just one cracked rib but two cracked ribs.. oh boy.. no wonder his breathing is abnormal. 
 
The rain began falling heavier now. Ok, I know what I need to do; I took hold of my med bag and stood up "Faolan's heart beat is steady but his breathing is abnormal. The reason that his breathing is abnormal is because he has two broken ribs in his lower left rib cage" I announced to everyone that are gathered around Faolan than I faced Aki "Aki, he'll be ok sweety. But we need to get him out of this rain so I could help him" I told her this calmly, keeping myself composed.
 
((Elizabeth got her work cut out for her today - I wonder if there's a way to fix a broken rib without cutting someone open.. uh.. I gotta google it))
