“Phoenix... Just go help Griff. I’m ok..” She instructed her, hoping she would listen. Griffon was hurt badly and needed to get out as soon as he could. “He’s hurt.. Bad..”

-=-=-=- 

Fjora slithered out and hissed viciously. She dashed over next to Blayze and dissolved a net with her acid that was flying at him in mid-air. “Hello, s-s-sweetheart! Doing good.” She tells him and slithers over to Ayaka to watch her back. She puffed up her chest and her eyes locked onto Nala. “I’m going to kill that creature..” She snarls angrily and lunges at the creature, ready to end her life.

-=-=-=-

Nipper gasps in the fresh air and peers out. “Thank you.” He squeaks out again.

-=-=-=-

Nala soaked up the damage and panted tiredly. “M- Merc...”

Ayaka sighed in relief when she saw the little compy poke his head out of her backpack. She yelped in surprise when the giant serpent approached her. She wished she hadn't sent Crusher to help with the others. 

"Uh...hello." She greeted, gripping her spear so hard that her knuckles turned white. "What the heck...are you some sort of giant Boa or something? Ayaka asked, trying to remember what she knew about snakes. She had studied them for safety reasons for field work. She could tell by the head shape that this was a constrictor, not a venomous snake. Venomous snakes had angular heads shaped like triangles. This one had a blunt head. That would make sense for a massive snake. 

(is Fjora a constrictor or a poison snake? You never said I don't think)

sorry it took so long doing three other uberactive rps today XD

Phoenix nodded and flapped back over to Griffon. The chains around him were much tighter than the ones on Nova. However, she tried her best to get a few off.

=-=-=-=-=

Griff felt molten metal spray from where Blayze's phoenix had shot the cage. He winced as the blobs stuck in his feathers and started to burn, "GET ME OUT OF HERE!" he thought, thrashing around again to try and get the metal off. He still couldn't move at all, or else he would've ran through the hole in the cage. He saw Fia working to melt the lock. He was so tired now. It was difficult to keep his eyes open. His breathing was now shallow and uneven. Pain coursed through every vessel in his body. He just kept his eyes forward, hoping that this would be over soon.

=-=-=-=-=

Elu bounded off her sister and headed towards the others to help them free Griffon. She dashed up to Nova and started tugging the ropes away, "Don't worry, dear. You'll be out soon." she said softly. She looked worridly at Griffon, "Hang in there. Just a little longer." she thought. She realized now that he would be too weak to walk. She would have to carry him on her back once he was free.

=-=-=-=-=

The general noticed Fjora rushing towards Nala and decided to go after her instead. He brandished his sword at her and ran straight at the snake.

Ayaka Hamasaki

Ayaka snapped out of her shock at seeing the giant snake just in time to see her in danger. She twirled her spear and urged Veritas forward, the raptor snarling and roaring in challenge as he used his tail to smack the man upside the heda to get his attention. 

"If that snake's on our side, you better watch it pal!" Ayaka warned, Veritas snarling as he got between the snake and the soldier. She readied her spear, willing to use the blade to k.ill if she had to. But she would only end someone's life if she absolutely had to. This was the first time she got a good look at the man's face. She saw then that he wasn't quite human. Not elven per say, but that's what he looked like to her at least. She wondered if this was a world like one of the Nine Realms of Norse mythology or something. She made a mental note to ask Elu later.

(Bolt, by the way, Nova is chained up. :) )

Nova inhales shallowly. “Just go help Griffon. He needs it more then I do!” She wheezes.

-=-=-=-

Fjora glances at the skeletal UtahRaptor and dashes around towards the General. She blows out her frill in anger and wraps her snake-like self around him. mind set it kill, she squeezes tightly, constricting tighter. “Prepare to die..” She hisses.

-=-=-=-

Nala helplessly lays on the ground, blood flowing from her stomach area and onto the ground. She wasn’t done yet. She picks up a rock with her telekinesis and launches it at Ayaka from behind.

(Yeah, I did. At like.. Page Six.. hemkã” (hee - Mee -keAh) She’s an oversized snake with vibrant blue colors. She can blow up a frill and shoot blue acid.)

(excuse the weird font. XD)

Ayaka nodded to the massive bright blue serpent. She pulled back on the reins and Veritas barked, his skeletal head turning to look at her with those big glowing eyes. You could see his nonexistant brain working to figure out what she wanted. 

"Hey! Any chance we can feed him to Crusher?" She called up to the serpent, seeing her ready to crush the General and glanced back at Nala

Fjora smirks and constricted him tighter. "Ahh, he's-s-s all skin and bones-s-s, darling. He needs-s-s a ton more work before consuming this thing. A skele-ton more. How would he eat it? He has-s-s no stomach.." She replies.

(Please excuse my bad jokes. :) )

Ayaka Hamasaki

Ayaka couldn't help giggling at the blue snake's jokes. She was starting to like her new scaly friend. What had they called her? She remembered the guards shouting what she was when she broke out....hemakã! That's what she was! She made a mental note to ask Elu what her fox like species was after the battle was over and they had their friends back.

"Touché. But you'd be surprised what you can do with a little alchemy. Crusher's bones are lined with iron and other metals to give him a little extra omph. Same with Veritas here." She agreed, giving her skeletal raptor mount a pat. To her, it was like riding a Stalhorse from the Legend of Zelda games. She made a mental note to get some horse bones if she could in order to make one. She was just glad that the snake was a constrictor. 

"Name's Ayaka by the way. This big guy here is Veritas. Crusher's the T-Rex. I had Asia out earlier, my Velociraptor, but Nala made her go dormant by pulling out a femur with that telepathy ability of hers." She told the hemakã, figuring she might as well introduce herself. Veritas barked as Crusher clomped over, tail lashing smugly in the air and the T-Rex nodded in respect to the big serpent. She made a mental note to not get on the frilled snake's bad side if she could help it. She also made a mental note to ask for a tooth the next time she lost one sometime soon for her alchemy experiments. Snake teeth showed up as being used in alchemy in all different cultures after all. A hemakã's would be a good substitute if she couldn't get a snake.

Rachel was rushing around the whole fight scene, confusing whoever she could. It also allowed her a nice glance at the entire fight scene. Elu’s sister that they had been fighting looked completely worn down, bleeding from all angles. Ayaka and her dinosaurs were prepared to end her. The fight to free Griff and Nova wasn’t going as well as Rachel would’ve hoped. She saw Elu attempting to free Nova of ropes, and Pheonix and Fia helping Griff. Griff was definitely in a worse state than Nova. 

Rachel decided to help Nova and Griff out of their chains, they had to get out of here as soon as possible. How pitiful their situation was right now! Everyone seemed to be crowding around Griff now, so Rachel went over to Nova’s cage so that she wouldn’t get in their way right now. She grabbed the chains around Nova and started pulling with all her strength - hopefully her new powers would amplify the strength she had. She would have to show this of to her brother later when they would be arm wrestling.

Fia

The lock finally melted completely and Fia opened the door to Griffon's cage. She could see Rachel trying to pull Nova out of her cage. Kneeling beside Griffon, she tried not to look at his injuries. They were definitely worse than Nova's but there wasn't anything she could do about that. She had no healing items or powers. Fia started to melt Griffon's chains and glanced at Phoenix, hoping the bird would come help her. They wanted to get out as fast as possible.

SO MUCH FUUUUUNNNNNNNZZZZZ XD

Griff felt his limbs becoming mobile again. He felt the soothing warmth cutting through the chains. He jerked his leg forward, "So close." he mumbled to himself.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix hopped onto Fia's shoulder to help melt the chains away, "Don't worry, Griff. You'll be outta there soon." she chirped.

=-=-=-=-=

Elu was able to use the holes Blayze's phoenix to fling the cages open. The burnt half flipping like a manhole cover.

=-=-=-=-=

The general was having the air sucked out of his lungs, "You overgrown worm. Let me go." he hissed.

 

((Please rid me of him.....he's a pain in my behind))

Ayaka Hamasaki

Crusher had just finished with his current bunch of guards, leaving most of them either fainted on the ground or running for the hills. He had orders not to eat anyone. That was fine with him. He didn't mind just being a big ol' scary skeletal monster on the battlefield. He sensed his creator needed him and clomped over to where she was with the hemakã. The snake was easily as tall as he was when she stood up. He liked that. She'd be a good protector for his human. The T-Rex may not have had a physical brain, but he could still think. He lowered his muzzle, nuzzling his human on the skeletal Utahraptor to make sure she wasn't hurt. Ayaka giggled in response at the big lug's concern. 

"Hey Crusher, think you can help our new friend Fjora here deal with the General? She thinks he'd make a good snack for ya." Ayaka asked, gesturing to the man still trapped in the coils of the serpent. Crusher snorted, hot, sulfurous breath washing over the girl as he eyed the big man in the metal armor. He gave Ayaka a look that clearly said "You seriously want me to eat this guy? His armor will give me indigestion." despite the fact he couldn't talk. Ayaka had to laugh at that. 

"I think Crusher here thinks that the General will give him indigestion. Despite not having a physical stomach" She told the Hemakã. Crusher rumbled his agreement, eyeing the man and lashed his skeletal tail in the air to scare off a few more guards. They'd seen what the big Rex did to their comrades before scampering off on their horses. They knew better than to mess with him by now. 

(hey what species is the General anyways? I don't think we ever said what he was. I think he should either be an elf or an orc or something, but definitately not human)

((Honestly....I have no clue....IZZA MYSTERY!!! XD))

Something crept into the general's brain, fear. He feared the creatures. Now, he was going to be eaten somehow by the skeleton. This was not how he hoped his death to be.

(let's just say he's an Orc then, how does that sound? Crusher would have no qualms about that! also, @Blue, what kind of creature did you call Nala and Elu again? I'm honestly too lazy to go back and double check)

Crusher leaned over the hemakã's scaly coils, sniffing at the man. He smelled like blood and sweat and fear. He was taking his time about it too. He glanced at the Hemakã, tilting his head a little as if to ask "What do you think? Should I eat him or let you crush him?" and glanced at Ayaka with the same look for her opinion. He wasn't the type of T-Rex that would kill for fun. Sure, he was hungry, but he would like to avoid eating two legged creatures unless absolutely necessary, thank you very much. He had standards and his creator/human friend for her opinion on what she wanted him to do. 

"Hey buddy, it's up to you if you wanna eat the man. Just make it quick and clean, ok? We don't need a Jurassic Park scenario here." Ayaka replied, throwing up her hands in response. Crusher simply shrugged and looked at the Hermakã with a look that said "OK fine! I'm getting peckish anyways, let 'im go and I'll deal with him. But I am NOT eating that armor." Ayaka had to translate for that. 

"He says he'll eat the General, but he won't eat the armor. It'll give him indigestion. Think you can do something about that Fjora?" She asked the big frilled snake. She had a feeling the two of them would get along just fine. Her largest dinosaur seemed to respect her as a fellow predator and so did Veritas for that matter from the way he was giving her a good amount of space to keep his rider safe

One of the chains finally melted, freeing part of Griffon. Fia immediately started on the next chain, glancing around to make sure there were no more guards coming to attack them.

Fjora smiles. “Of cours-s-s-se darling.” She latches onto his foot and unweaves around him. 

-=-=-=-

Nove feels the strain of the chains leave her arms and she pulled them to her front. She pulls her knees up to her chin and pulls them off. “Oh my gosh! Thank you...” She replies shakily.

-=-=-=-

Nightshade starts pulling off the chains on Griffon. ‘Hrrr..’

-=-=-=-

Nala has given up at this point.

Ayaka grinned, letting the hemskã do her thing as Crusher watched. She did mental comparisons between the two predators. The girl wondered if they ever had any prehistoric animals like the hemskã on Earth. They probably did, but she focused more on the dinosaurs than other reptiles. 

"Make sure you get the chainmail. That will make Crusher puke. I don't want to find out if that can even happen with a skeleton dinosaur. Especially not one as big as a T-Rex." She advised the big snake as she hung back with the dinosaurs to watch the show. She was hoping she could consider the big snake a friend after this battle was over.

Sorry for taking so long guys... I don't know where others are:\

The general was on the verge of passing out when Fjora started uncoiling. He couldn't speak and gasped desperatly for air.

=-=-=-=-=

Griffon felt the last of the chains fall off of his body. The coller was still in place though. From sheer exhaustion, he collapsed to the ground, opening his mouth as far as it would go once the muzzle was off. He coughed up a few globs of sticky blood, and his breathing was labored and uneven.

=-=-=-=-=

Taking action as soon as he was out, Elu maneuvered Griff onto her back, "Let's get out of here!" she yelled to the others.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix landed on her friend's neck and nuzzled him gently, "It's ok, Griff. We'll fix you." she cried softly, trying to be as comforting as possible.

Do I have permission for this? Yeah, I do.

So the gang traveled home after the whole scenario, Fjora joining them as they walk back, looking around at her newfound freedom while staying silent.

They arrived at the cave and Nova stayed dead silent, holding her limp, motionless,  arm in her hand and Nightshade by her side as she sinks down at the side of the cave. She gazes at the bloody, mangled up Griffon, silently praying he would be ok. She runs her fingers through her hair and works her jaw as Fjora curls up beside her, tounge flicking. “Is everyone OK?” Fjora asks softly.

Yes, you da host...you have the authority 8D

Elu slowly put Griffon down on the floor near the outside of the cave. She sighed worridly as she looked over his extensive wounds, "I'm going to need some help with him. It doesn't look good." she whispered, examining his torn up face. She moved his feathers aside and gasped at the bleeding gash on his side, "We need to flush this out and somehow close the wound before infection sets in." she said, turning to the others.

=-=-=-=-=

Griff's breathing was shallow by the time they arrived at the cave. He was still quiet, since the collar was still around his neck. All he did was half-open his still functioning eye and look weakly at the others. He flinched when Elu started poking around. He wanted to talk again, even if his friends didn't understand him, he wanted to break this terrifying silence.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix stayed next to Griff's head through the whole trip, "It's ok, Griff. You're gonna be fine. We'll fix this. We'll make you better." she cried, small bird tears dripping down her feathers.

Ayaka pulled up on Veritas shortly after Fjora did. The Hemskã seemed perfectly at home with the group and Crusher seemed perfectly satisfied with his meal of Orc General. The T-Rex snorted, nodding his head in respect to the giant snake as the alchemy holding him together wore off. He turned back into a banana shaped/sized tooth and landed in Ayaka's open palm, along with a few shards of iron ore, diamonds and whatever else had been used to make him. 

"Looks like the big guy needs to go dormant for awhile. I'll let him rest and call him when we need him." She mused as she got off her giant raptor, letting him do the same and turning back into a talon with a couple shards of iron that she had laced into his form when she originally transmuted him using natural ingredients she drew from the area around the cave. As she put them in her backpack, she pulled out her medical kit and went over to where Elu and Griffon were laying nearby. 

"Mom made me learn basic first aid. Including CPR. For when I'm out in the field collecting samples for my personal gemstone collection or for whatever jewelry project I'm working on. Mom's former military and she believes in being prepared for anything. Even made me join Girl Scouts when I was a kid. I don't regret it either. They teach you a lot of things that are useful in the real world when it comes to survival." Ayaka told Elu, opening the kit to reveal bandages, iodine, hydrocortizone, simple pain killers, fresh water, and hot/cold packs and patches for internal injuries. 

"If you can hold his wing out of the way, I can flush out the gash. Then I'll try to deal with his face. I'm not sure how much I can do, but I can tell you right now, he'll need a professional healer or whatever you call doctors here in this world. And you never did tell us what this place was called." She explained, glancing at her friend's torn up face and winced in sympathy. She had a strong stomach at least. Otherwise she would've lost her lunch at the first sight of the wounds. She'd been bitten by snakes, scratched up by foxes, attacked by crows, and all sorts of critters. 

(btw, the world is called Valienth if you recall what we discussed on the RP PM)

I'm a sleepy puddle now...

Elu nodded and held Griffon's wing up and out of the way, "This world is called Valienth." she sighed, looking at the deep wound on his side.

=-=-=-=-=

Griffon felt his wing getting moved. He was irritated beyond belief, "Take this thing off me first!" he thought, glaring at the others. he clacked his beak in pain and annoyance. If he was able, he'd be squawking angrily right now.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix felt Griffon's anger radiating off him. She saw the source as the collar clamped on his neck, "Don't worry, Griff. I'll work on it." she cooed soothingly, before grabbing hold of the device and trying to tear it off but with little success.

Ayaka sensed Griff's discomfort, glancing up at the big griffin he had turned into. She rolled her eyes, knowing how iritated her friend was. She had to take care of the wound before she could remove anything. Good thing her Mom taught her how to do basic stitches. She could tell right away that the wound would probably need them once she cleaned it out. 

"Oh hush you! I can't work with you squirming around like that. Now this might sting a little, but that's just because it's iodine. The stuff stings like heck, but it'll clear out any infections you might get from this cut before I sew it up. It definitely needs stitches." She scolded the griffon, giving her friend a glare that would've sent even an Indominous Rex running for the hills. She could be scary when she wanted to be. She turned her attention back to Elu. 

"So, Valienth huh? And what exactly are you anyways, Elu? I remember hearing the guards call Fjora there a Hemskã back at the fortress. She and Crusher seem to get along and he seems to respect her skills as a fellow predator. I'm guessing you're not like the foxes we have back on Earth?" Ayaka asked the fox out of curiosity, nodding to the giant snaek as she poured some iodine on a fresh wash cloth, using fresh water she'd gathered using a stone bowl made with her alchemy so she'd have it on hand and not have to go back for another water bottle. She cleaned up the wound and dabbed at it with the iodine soaked cloth. She'd have to get more in case of emergency. And she'd probably have to teach at least one if not all of her companions how to do this in case she wasn't around to help. That way if she got captured (or worse), they could take care of each other without worrying about a single healer being in the group. She made a mental note to ask Elu what crystals were found here and what could be used in Alkahestry - the Xingese form of Alchemy from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. SHe also made another mental note to ask Fjora if her venom a/or scales had any healing properties or even if she knew of any healing plants or materials native to this world. She could learn a lot from the giant blue snake

If Spiderman were to have a dragon, what species would it be? XD

Phoenix stopped chewing on it and started melting it with fire. She carefully avoided his feathers and successfully got the silencing collar off, "There, buddy. All better." she chirped, nuzzling his beak.

=-=-=-=-=

The second the collar was melted off, Griff let out a loud, raspy hiss, "Don't touch." he growled, snapping at Ayaka and whipping his tail towards Elu. He shifted uncomfortably on the stone. He felt squished. Confined. Trapped. Again. He lashed out and lunged towards the opening of the cave, smashing into the door Ayaka had put there earlier, "LET ME OUT!" he shrieked, crashing against it to try to get out. No. Not get out. Escape. He wanted to be out, in a tree. Somewhere without others. His solitary, protective griffon brain told him to run. To fly. Get away from all...this. He let out bellowing roars that shook the entrance. His cries only became louder as his hopelessly broken leg swung in different direction, the protruding bones sometimes catching and tearing on loose rocks.

=-=-=-=-=

Elu was about to answer Ayaka's questions when Griffon went beserk, "GRIFFON! NO!" she shouted, trying to grab him and get him back on the ground. However, her attemps were in vain, as all she got was a thrashing tail the slashedat her legs. She growled and stepped back, looking at her slightly bleeding legs.

Probably a Rocket Ripper.. What dragon for Alan Walker?

Nova watches Griffon freaks OUT and takes off. "Griffon! No!" Elu shrieks. Nova didn't blame him for not wanting to be confined in any way, but, all she needed was comfort, to vent a little bit and some medical attention. She wasn't much help with a broken arm though. "Griffin, calm down.." She whispers softly to herself, hoping he would calm down in any sort of way.

Fjora, who knew how to handle her venom perfectly to a science slithers over to the aggressive Griffin and injects a small amount of the fluid that would calm him down, and make him relax. She proceed to explain what she did. "My venom is not just a poison, it can also be used for medical uses. Putting people into light sleep or creatures into a sleep for surgery, etc.. Very useful."

don't really know him...hmm...Changewing perhaps or Thunderdrum?

Now they've done it. Someone bit him. They were trying to put him asleep. Just like the others. He heard a small whisper, "Griffon, calm down..." he turned his growled head to look behind him. Nova. His best friend. In a chaotic spin, he finally smashed through the door with his tail, grabbed Nova with his hand, and pushed off the wall. His wings extended the second he was clear of the cave walls, flying and nearly crashing into the tree where he had been before the incident. He dropped his friend on a large, sturdy branch before clawing to grab hold. He was panting heavily and shivering. Griff let his wings droop but stay extended over the branch. Slowly and painfully lying down, he curled his tail around the branch for extra support. He turned towards Nova and then the cave. Everything hurt so much now, and the others weren't helping whatsoever in his mind. Trying to sedate him, trap him in a little cave, and mess with his wounds. He growled softly and put his head on the branch, unsure of himself right now.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix squawked with surprise when Griffon started raging through the cave. She was even more surprised when he managed to brek down the door and fly out. She watched as he flew to the tree. Shaking her head, she flew after him, "That flight looked really labored and painful for him." she chirped to herself. When she got to the tree, she landed softly between Nova and Griff. She looked worridly at Nova and waddled over to her, looking somewhere for comfort in all this.

Ayaka yelped in surprise as Griff's wing caught her in the jaw, making her fall on her but as she fumbled the expensive iodine and managed to get a cap on it. Thankfully, she managed to save most of it as Griff smashed through her door that she made of quartz. Thankfully it wasn't anything stronger or he would've hurt himself worse. 

"Whoa, talk about PTSD. Sheesh. Fjora, maybe next time we don't mention that your venom acts as a sedative in front of a patient that was just tortured by the enemy, ok?" Ayaka suggested, getting up and checking her jaw by cracking it slightly. It was fine, just bruised, thank the gods. She wished now that she used something less painful than iodine to help her friend. She went outside and saw him up a tree. Where a griffin should be - with Phoenix at his side. 

"Griff, I'm sorry dude. I warned you about the iodine. I was trying to clean your wound so I could sew it up. It needs stitches. If it keeps bleeding, you'll fall off that branch from exhaustion. Or worse. I know what I'm doing buddy. I've fixed you up before after biking accidents. Remember when you tried to jump the river back home and you scraped yourself up so bad I had to do a field dressing on your arm while Nova called the hospital? Your Mom nearly tore our heads off for letting you do something so stupid." Ayaka reminded her friend, standing under his tree and looking up at him, letting him take the high ground. Both proverbialy and literally. That had been the day she first met Griff. They were 12 at the time and they'd become fast friends over Phoenix. She turned to the bird. 

"You remember that day, don't you Phoenix? You tried to steal my peanut butter and jelly sandwich when I wasn't looking while we had lunch at the park." She asked the bird, grinning smugly at the parrot turned to her namesake bird as she spoke.

What if Tony Stark had a dragon?? 8D

Griffon looked down at his friend and whimpered softly. He remembered everything, but his griffin instincts told him otherwise. He did return the still shocked Nova to the ground but still stayed in the tree. He felt the stinging burn the iodine left in his side. He felt it going deeper. This was no simple fleshwound. It went so deep, almost slicing through a few organs in the process. He stayed in a branch above his friends' heads and just chirped quietly to himself. His griffin side said to flee as fast as he could, but his human side told him to stay. This conflict of interests caused him to constantly be looking at the sky then back at his friends. He let out some nervous trills as he fought his instincts to run.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix flapped down and landed on Ayaka's shoulder, "They're just trying to help, Griff! You need to cooperate some." she squawked. She could tell something bigger was going on when he just hesitantly sat in the tree a little bit above them, but she couldn't put her talon on it.

Umm... Thunderpede.. Or slitherwing.. Cap?

Nova yelps quietly as Griffon swept her up onto the tree and then set her on the ground, making her limp arm throb. She glances up at her best friend with sad eyes. He wasn't right. She glances at the Phoenix and back at Ayaka. "Aya? Is there anything we can do to help him that wouldn't hurt? I can probably grab anything you needed..." She asks her quietly. Nightshade trots over to Blayze and huffs softly. Fjora curling up next to Ayaka.

hmmm....bonenapper??....how bout Ant-man? XD

Griff kept trilling softly and eventually curled his tail around the branch. He flipped over to hang upside-down in front of his friends. He folded his wings tightly against his sides and tucked his head up and underneath them. He kept his eyes open to look at his friends. Well, only with his one eye anyway. The left one was still oozing slightly, and the gash across the middle almost cut that side of his face in half.

=-=-=-=-=

Elu padded out of the cave and started making her way over to the small group at the tree.

Fjora counts in her head and looks at the girl. "He should relax in a few seconds..."

or night terrors maybe....mmmm....what about Hawkeye?

((Can we switch Elu, buddy? I have no clue what to do with her right now... D:))

Griffon growled at Fjora. He felt the venom seeping through his bloodstream, but he fought against it. His pupils narrowed to slits, and he flipped back onto the branch. He wouldn't fall asleep. Not now. Not in the presence of any others. He needed a place where he could rest in peace, without being prodded and probed, no matter how bad his wounds were. A nest perhaps. He hissed in warning and started to claw his way up the trunk. He finally settled near the top. Now, he wanted to be alone, far away from any social contact. His griffin side roared up again as he turned his head slightly to gaze at everyone on the ground.

=-=-=-=-=

Elu put her front paws on the tree trunk, "Griffon, dear. Please come down. We're not trying to scare you." she pleaded. She sighed as she realized what was happening to him. The encounter with Nala must have jumpstarted his primal side. That could prove problematic in the future.

Ayaka nodded, glancing over at Fjora. She knew the Hemskã might have some ideas. She turned to Fjora to ask. 

"Iodine is the strongest medication I have available. Other things I have either sting or burns out the infections. Do you know of any plants that might be better suited for this sort of thing? Something that can clean out infection but won't sting? All I'll need to do is grind them up to make a paste. Then I can use that instead of the iodine. I learned how to use natural cures when I was in the girl scouts. They also taught us about regular plants that were edible or not." She asked the giant snake. She was starting to feel more comfortable arund the hemskã and figued if Elu didn't know, the snake would.

... I dunno.

(Hemkã. No E. :) )

Elu sighs and looks up at the Griffin. “Dearie, please come down. Ayaka just wants to help and you will feel better.” Knowing she could get him down anyhow, she wanted him to come down without her forcing him.

 

Nova sighs, picks up Phoenix with her good arm and puts her on her shoulder. She knew how to climb trees easily one armed so she started making her way up the tree. “He’ll be ok, Phoenix.” She whispers to the flamey creature. She looks down at Ayaka quickly. “Anything I can draw when I come back?”

 

Fjora’s eyes flicker around the room. Freedom felt nice, and so did having friends.

Ayaka sighed, glancing between the Hemkã and her other injured friend. 

"Well, while we wait for Griffin to come down, why don't I take a look at your arm?" She suggested, pulling out a cast making kit and a few other materials including a sling. "I figure it might as well keep me busy. That way Fjora's venom has time to do it's thing on Griff. And you never answered my question about those plants." Ayaka told the Hemkã, glancing over at the snake and then at Elu. 

"And you never answered my question about what you were." She told the Fox as she s took inventory of what she had in terms of medical supplies

I’m to tired to put a subject..

Elu turns her head towards the girl, still staying by the tree for the griffin’s general safety. “A nyrka my dear. The same with that fool sister of mine.” She replies softly. 

 

Nova sighs and gets down from the tree, hitting a short branch in the process. Her arm throbbed in pain when even moving it, but Ayaka was going to fix it for her. She made sure Phoenix didn’t get hurt on anything on the way down and she walks back to the cave and plants herself down by her. She looks at all the stuff in her bag, and back up at her best friend. 

 

Fjora gives a confused look. “What plants-s-s? I miss-s-sed your question, Darling.”

Ayaka glanced back up at the snake as she examined her friend's arm. Thankfully, it wasn't a bad break. It was just a small fracture. All it needed was a cast and a chance to heal. That was good at least. She could easily fix that. And she made a mental note of what Elu was, a nyrka. Cool name. She wondered if that loosely translated as "fox" in whatever they called English around Valienth.

"I was talking about medicinal plants. Something that could help Griff without hurting his wound or making it worse. Something I can grind up and use in place of the iodine I keep in my medical kit. Preferably something that works on both animals and humans, or at least humanoids. I figure someone with venom would probably know about medicinal plants since you don't want to accidentally use the wrong venom and hurt someone you care about. Or others of your species for that matter." Ayaka clarified, gesturing up to Griff as she cleaned the small cuts on Nova's arm and face before pulling out the materials she needed for a splint, setting the arm and putting it in a sling with well trained hands. She made a mental note to thank her old Girl Scout troop leader for making them practice medical care. If she had still been a Scout, this would definiately earn her a medical treatment badge of some sort.

Raptors assemble!

((Awhile back, you do realize her arm was bending the wrong way right? Just asking. I don’t know fractures well.))

Fjora flickers her tongue while in deep thought. “Well, it’s-s-s almost never going to happen... We know how to handle our venom, but the plants, yes. We have a few for cleansing and cleaning wounds-s-s but some of them still hurt.” She replies slowly.

(first rule of field medicine: deal with the critical wounds first. A broken arm? That can wait. An open wound that needs stitches and a slashed eye? That's a bit more serious. I think Ayaka was a bit busy worrying about Griff than looking at Nova's arm) 

Ayaka nodded, tying the sling around Nova's arm and neck to give it support. She turned her attention back to the serpent. 

"I just need something that will disinfect a wound and not sting. Something mild but effective. Back home, I'd use something like aloe vera or something similar with medicinal properties. Do you think you can find me something like that and take Nova with you. She can help you carry the plants even with a censored arm. That's something she can do easy without hurting her arm even more. She can use the sling to carry them if she wants." She told the Hemkã as she got her stuff put away

Echo is eating my door..

Fjora nods. “Ah, I gotta you. I know somthing that will work.” She replies, slithering off.

 

Nova nods, she could help out. She glances at her arm and follows after Fjora silently.

 

Nipper peeks up at the top of the bag. “‘Ello?” He sqeaks.

Ayaka yelped in surprise, turning to see the head of the little Compy sticking out of her backpack. 

"Nipper! I forgot you were in there! Again! Sorry pal, hang on, I got you covered." She told the Compy, taking her pack off and unzipping it completely to let him out. 

"There ya go, you can come out now. I let Asia and the others go dormant in their fossil forms for now." The girl assured him, rubbing his little head as she spoke to let him know he was safe

maybe give Echo some meat to chew on...

It's not that he didn't acknowledge their pleads for him to go back down to earth, It's that he just didn't hear them. Griff had his eyes glued to the horizon and beak turned into the breeze that whistled through his feathers. He shuffled out a little farther on the top branch, causing the whole top of the tree to bend under his weight. He inhaled and exhaled softly, trying to turn the harsh, ragged breaths back to normal ones. He slowly and almost involuntarily extended his starry wings out to let the evening sun bathe his feathers in the last rays of warmth. Everything else just melted away, leaving Griffon alone in the sky. After a few moments of silence, he closed his eyes and tilted his head towards the gradually appearing stars, letting loose a wild call. It was a long, loud song that echoed across the canopy of the forest. He sang on for a good two minutes before letting the call come to a ghostly, echoing end. If one didn't know better, they would think a wraith was haunting the forest from the mysterious, wild song.

I did EARLIER! Like half an hour ago.. I literally gave her cow.

Elu walks back into the cave and sits down by to Fia. "He's not coming down for a little while, best to let him stay. He's pretty calm right now."
Nipper bounds outside and looks up in the tree, his little tiny, high energy and bouncy self squeaks up at Griffon. "Griff? You OK?"
Fjora slithers over to some strange looking leaves. She pulls a few off the tree and hands them to the girl. "You've been quiet, S-s-sweetheart. Are you okay?" Nova nods, taking the leaves into her hands. "Yeah, I'm fine.. Just a little scared for Griffon and a bit shook up." Fjora understands this, being stuck in therefore years. "What are these?"
"Mercas. They clean wounds without hurting when you mash them up." The leaves were thick as Aloe leaves and have the same constancy of them, yet the color of a natural silver with flaws of black.

Ayaka sighed, looking up at Griff when he gave his morunful wraith like cry. She knew that type of sound from creatures in video games like Dungeons and Dragons Online or even Star Wars, the Old Republic. She never thought she'd hear it in real life. She felt a chill go down her spine, like someone stepped on her grave. She glanced over to where she could see the hemkã and Nova were gathering some sort of silvery white leaves. She couldn't see them very well from here, but they were pretty. She made a mental note to figure out what they were. She'd ask Fjora when they came back. 

"I know Griff. He won't come down until he's tired. Or hungry. Which will probably happen first if I know him. In the mean time, I better feed Phoenix." She told Elu, crossing her arms over her chest as she turned to the phoenix in question. 

"Hey Phoenix, you want some dried fruit or nut trail mix?" She asked the bird, offering her arm as a perch for the former parrot, making sure she had her leather arm band in place to protect her skin from those sharp talons of hers. They were more like hawk talons now than parrot talons, still just as sharp,

Maybe she wants a toy...

Griffon glanced at the others far below on the ground. He trilled quietly to himself and looked down. The mud puddle from earlier looked suspiciously comfy right about now. Slowly getting up and crouching on the branch, he dropped off and spiraled over the clearing. Gliding in helixing circles downward, he swirled around several times above the others, letting out excited chirps. He eventually came to a skidding land right in the deep puddle. He waded out a little farther and went to a spot where the wonderful mud came right to his chin. He cooed softly and closed his eyes, "Mud....wonderful mud...mud is good....muddy feathers..." he chirped, settling into the puddle like a hippo in a mud wallow.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix hopped onto Ayaka's arm and bobbed up and down, "Snack!" she squawked so the girl would understand. She was about to open her beak to wait when there were some excited chirps before a loud squelching noise. After whipping her head around to the source of the disturbance, her beak dropped open from disbelief, "GRIFFON SHADEROCK! GET OUT OF THAT PUDDLE IMMEDIATELY!" she shrieked, flapping over to scold him further.

Ayaka was about to give Phoenix her tropical fruit mix when she glanced over and burst out laughing. Griffon was back to his old self and wallowing in the mud like a feathery hippo. She rolled her eyes as Phoenix flew over and started scolding him. She got up and walked over to join the legendary bird. 

"You do know I still need to treat your injuries right? Sure, mud's good for the skin, but I'm going to have to clean you off before I can even think about treeating them." She scolded the griffin, smiling as she did it. She was glad to see that Griff was getting back to his old self, even if it was just tempoary

Playing in mud...lots of mud...wonderful mud... 8D

Griffon rolled his eyes at all the scolding, "Do not disturb...I'm going into a mud coma. Leave me alone." he growled softly, lowering himself in the mud. The only part that stuck out was the very tip of his beak where his nostrils were so he could breathe, and one of his feathery ears stuck out like a little rock in a pond. Just staying suspended in the mud took all the pressure off his mangled leg, which wasn't hurting as much since he was there.

=-=-=-=-=

Phoenix started worrying more than being mad now, "No. Griffon, no. No mud comas. Get out so Ayaka can fix you." she squawked, becoming more distressed now.

I’m resisting the urge to tear someone’s face off...

After gathering enough of the leaves, Fjora and Nova walk back to the cave. Nova sets them down and Fjora does the same. Fjora grabs a small slab of broken quartz from the ground and instructs Ayaka to remove the outer layer and grind the inner, black fluid on the inside into a globby paste. “I add my acid after, and it breaks it down into a painless, nonstinging solution.” Nova trots over to Griffon and plops down next to him in the mud. “You ok?” She asks him softly, sticking her usable arm in the mud. 

 

Nipper steps lighty over to Phoenix and looks over at the larger creature.
