Keep up, Scum! [Open/Ki'sha]

Post by Scortia on Fri Jul 28, 2017 6:40 pm

The guard was even more tense than ever.

Scortia's condition seemed to be worsening, her paranoia becoming more intense with every passing day. But she remained cooped up in her palace, and wouldn't dare to allow anyone to see her in her current mental state. And thus, to blind her citizens and make them think she was still the goddess they claimed she to be, she buffed up the patrols, increasing the traffic at the borders even more. Of course, some questioned this, but the large majority seemed more or less fine.

After all, the Ki'sha were bred to be warriors. To fight. It was in their very culture. Their culture seemed to center around survival of the fittest, after all. There was no room for weaklings, or sympathizers. Only the strongest survived, and only the strongest of the strongest would be allowed to rule. And this was what made the Ki'sha so feared.

Recently, there had been rumors of dragons approaching near the southern border. What separated this from normal rogues was that they seemed to be gathered in small groups, clans almost. This was worrying, and made little sense. The only other tribe on Verula were the Stormcallers, and they were "peaceloving mudlickers", as the Ki'sha liked to call them.

And so today, several tribesmen had been gathered together, in preparation for an organized scouting of the tribe, with extra soldiers than usual. Scortia would sit at her post, waiting for her citizens to arrive. The soldiers would be preparing at the courtyard.

The increase in traffic and patrols were a bit annoying, but it wasn't his place to question it, so Ayato would just go along with whatever the Kuz'a wanted to do; he was sure that she had her own reasons - which he soon found out, when the rumours reached his ears, whisperings of clans of dragons gathering near the borders on the Southern side, followed by an announcement: There would be a scouting that day, something he was used to.

Ayato came a few minutes early, reporting to the courtyard and waiting for his orders there. It was filled with dragons of different heights, most of them taller than he was (something he hated; he was often teased about it, not outright, but hinted); their faces were unfamiliar, but all set in a similar stony expression, one that even he wore. Expressions of either jealousy or annoyance flashed across their faces whenever Ayato made eye contact, and he made sure to give them a taunting smirk, quickly replaced by his usual stoicness. It would do him no good to seem too playful in front of the Kuz'a.

Speaking of which, where was she?

The call to action was rather peculiar. Adder had been loyally serving his role as Ugaan with the utmost skill and persistence he could acquire, and yet these stranger rogues were starting to come into the territory and terrorize civilians. They were stupid to think they could get away with such a thing, coming into Ki'shan land and acting like they owned the place. It made Adder sick.

But Adder was also confused about something. He was confused about how, exactly, the rogues presence was detected, but yet dealt with. Normally, when Ki'sha border guards picked up intruders, they were dealt with, even killed, immediately, not reported back to the Kuz'a. Perhaps a fei had relayed the message? Whatever the reason, it made Adder's blood boil, his claws dig into the ground, ready to defend his tribe.

He arrived at the courtyard, glancing around. It didn't appear as if Scortia was there yet. Adder glanced around, and spotted Ayato, a superior officer of his. It wasn't surprising to see him here. He would, no doubt, be leading the attack. Adder only knew of Ayato because he was an Aliugaan, but other than that the two had never actually met formally.

Once he found a nice place to sit, Adder then waited for Scortia, preparing for her orders.

The crowd that appeared before Scortia was roughly ten warriors, including her Aliugaan Ayato and the warrior Adder. Dragons bustled about, some of them whispering among themselves, but almost all conversation halted when Scortia walked into the courtyard, her head held high. Her eyes would seem to scan each and every soldier there, like daggers prepared to strike out and kill. Despite her size, most knew to fear her prowess. Not many had seen it in action, but being told that your leader was a gift from the gods, especially when told at a young age, was usually enough.

After looking over everyone, she turned her attention towards the general group, and would make her way over to the front, so that she may give the orders. She spoke in Ki'shin, the language that all the Ki'shan knew, and was much more common than any Ki'shan knowing universal. "Attention warriors! As you know, reports from the outer river village of Nuat'uk have told us that a group of rogue dragons have made it through our grasp and have started attacking our Luiaans. As to what border patrol is responsible for this breath, we haven't a clue yet, but they will be punished appropriately. Your job is to go out there and exterminate the rogues at all costs. Do I make myself clear?" she said, her voice full of authority.

Once the dragons were prepared, Scortia's attention turned to Ayato, and she beckoned him forward, "Ayato, you will be in charge of this squadron. Understood? I expect you to bring back my soldiers in one piece." she asked, eyeing him with only the tiniest whiff of respect.

Movement at the edges of his vision caught his attention, and he slid his eyes towards the source, dark blue eyes narrowing in recognition when he noticed that a male had arrived - an Ugaan whose name Ayato hadn't really bothered to remember, and his attention refocused on the courtyard, not showing any signs of acknowledgement, acting as if Adder wasn't there at all. Such was his nature. Underlings he ignored unless he took a particular liking to them, and even then he usually spared them nothing but a brief glance; superiors he greeted but made sure to keep his distance.

Ayato watched as more and more dragons (mostly Ugaans) appeared, and his gaze briefly turned to them, counting their numbers, returning their expressionless stares - bordering on rude - with a slight lift of his eye ridge, but did not really comment, though a warning flashed in his eyes. Then he returned to his waiting, wings clasped tight to his sides and basking in the warmth of the orb of blinding light that hung in the sky. It made him feel slightly drowsy, but nothing on his face or stance indicated so. There was no room for weaknesses. Show one, and they'd be noticed and taken down for future use by the rest.

And there she was. The Kuz'a made her way over to the assembled group, her hazel stare commanding and confident, and she had a presence that was hard to notice, despite her smaller size. He bowed his head, meeting her gaze briefly (not too long, lest it seem impertinent) before dropping it to the ground. Stepping forward when Scortia beckoned, he said, "Yes, Your Majesty,"; and to his squadron he commanded them to ready themselves for flight to the Nuat'uk village. "We will be leaving now, Your Majesty. They will come back in one piece, of course." With that, he would spread his wings and launch himself into flight, his 'squadron' following him in eerie silence. Even their wingbeats were just rustles.

He wondered what awaited them.

((From this point onward I will be posting on Adder only, until Scortia is needed again. That means Ayato will post after I post o3o))

Adder listened to the Kuz'a with respect and admiration. She was a strong, powerful presence. If it weren't for the strict caste system that was laid down on on the Ki'sha hierarchy. Sure, there was the Safyz'a, which was probably the highest rank you could receive without having noble blood. However, even that usually required someone to at least be distantly related to the Kuz'a. If you didn't have a noble past tied in with the rulers, most notably the Linfae family, then you likely wouldn't be receiving a high rank in your life time, with the highest any normal dragon could achieve being Aliugaan.

"Yes, my Kuz'a!" he shouted in unison with the others, bowing deeply in respect towards her, before raising once again. Truly a terrifying power to rule under. Their tribe was blessed with the might of a god to protect them.

And thus, after Scortia's speech, she would talk to the Aliugaan leading. After that, he would watch as his supposed commander took off into the air. Quickly after him the other dragons followed, all various types of draconiform, all various shades of grey, brown, gold, yellow, and green. Adder joined the flight, his eyes every so often wandering around him, scanning his surroundings. Keeping himself alert.

They would fly for several miles. After a long trek of flying, they would begin to spot the river village in the distance.

Ayato could hear the faith and pride ringing in the voices that called out around him, that barked a response to the Kuz'a's orders. He did not shout along with the others; his eyes, which had turned to observe his squadroon, met Scortia's formidable gaze again, and he once more gave her a dip of his head before unfurling his blue wings and throwing himself into the air with a sort of reckless grace, his assigned squadron fanning out behind him, lifting into the air row after row, most of them trained personally by him. The sky was filled with soft hums of beating wings, stirring the air as they locked into flight and began speeding towards their destination, bright blue at their head, leading them.

They adopted the arrow-like formation that birds in migration, cutting swiftly through the sky. The hot air streamed past his face, under his wings, lifting the soft membranes up; he could feel a slight ticklish sensation, and recalled with annoyance how sensitive his wings were. The sun was blazing bright, a white orb in the sky, an eye watching over them all. The eye of a god, a religious Ki'Shan would say. They flew for a while - after all, the village was located near the borders. At long last they spotted the outer river village of Nuat'uk, undicated by the little huts that sprang up, and the river that gushed by, spitting up water into the air in its rough tumble over the rocks that lay beneath it.

Exterminate at all costs.

They were hovering in the air when they spotted the band of rogues laughing and toeing the borders.
