An Unsung Past (Open to All)

Post by Wake on Fri Mar 10, 2017 8:24 am

Wake laid in his cave, resting after getting a good catch of fish and a deer. As a lone Rouge, the wyvern didn't get many chances to rest, though the hyperactive dragon didn't really enjoy resting. Wake began to shut his eyes for a nap. He may have feared humans, but he knew they couldn't get to him here. His den was in a sea cliff that was only feet from high tide, and with no beach below it. No way a human could a human could get into the den. Only a dragon could ever get to the opening, though none taller then 60'. And with that thought, Wake finally began to sleep. However, unknown to the wyvern, someone from his past looked from above.

The man, apparently an archer of some kind, looked down the cliff side. He began to rethink this. Is this really a good idea. The wyvern was barely out of being a hatchling when it happened. He probably has more fear then the older dragons would, but I need help. And the only dragon nearby that would have any trust of me...if he even remembers me. The human then looked to the sky. If other dragons showed up, talking his way out of the situation wouldn't be easy. The human quickly planted a stake in ground, and began to climb down, praying that if a dragon showed up they would be willing to listen.

Servius Eirene Koinonia was on the hunt. There was a delectable little two-legged morsel heading toward the cliff overlooking the sea. The Manticore had been stalking it for a couple hours now--a long time for a meal, but well worth it to this predator. The human appeared to be looking for something, blissfully unaware of the great beast behind it. Eventually the biped came to the cliff and stopped to look at the sky.

Servius lay at the edge of the forest, blended with the shadows cast by the canopy above him. A deep throaty chuckle erupted from his slightly opened maw. It is not the sky you should be worried about, The Manticore thought. The greatest danger comes from behind. The winged lion's scorpion tail lashed lazily at the warm air created by the sea. His keen eyes watched as the soon-to-be-snack drove a stick into the ground then started to climb down the side of the cliff.

As soon as his plaything's eyes disappeared beneath the rock, Servius stood and walked out of the woods. Leathery wings extended and beat to lift the great beast into the air. The Manticore flew past the cliff, circled back around towards it, and plucked the tiny human from the rock.

The human looked up in shock as the Manticore came in. His only thought was I thought I was out of his territory? As soon as he was gripped by the creature, he yelled "Come on!" with an Irish draw. He then looked up at the Manticore, this time speak in the language of the dragons.
"Manticore! You may hate my kind, but there is worse then me coming! I'm trying to stop them!"

Meanwhile, Wake's eyes shot open as he heard something outside. The wyvern shot out of the cave like an arrow from a bow as he looked and quickly eyed the Manticore. That Manticore, after all he said, think he can just hunt in my territory? Wake's horns frilled out as he darted next to the larger creature, letting out a screeching roar as he approached. He then spoke with an angry voice. "After what you told me, Manticore, you have some nerve hunting in my territory! If I weren't a nicer drake I'd have already sliced your wings...." It was then that Wake noticed the human in Servius' claws, and fear quickly came to both his face and tongue. "Whe...where did this human come from?" The human then looked at the small wyvern with some excitement. "Wyvern, you know me. Please tell me you remember me." Wake just looked at Servius with a confused look on his face.

The right forepaw of The Manticore became a cage. The sharp claws prevented Servius' new plaything from escaping, threatened harm if it tried, promised death if it no longer amused him. The winged lion landed on solid ground and sat, dangling his prize over the edge of the cliff. Bipeds were most amusing when in peril, faced with certain death should The Manticore decide to grant their wish and "put them down".

This biped did not beg for mercy as it should have. Instead, it tried to reason with the mightiest of predators and dared to do so in the tongue of the lizards. Servius' eyes locked onto the maw of the human, read the words it formed. ..You may hate my kind, but there is worse than me coming!.. Did the feeble human really think The Manitcore saw his kind as something to be concerned about? Never would the hunter worry about his prey but if they started to die out.

The winged feline with a scorpion's tail laughed. The paw that decided the biped's fate moved closer to Servius' face. "Worse?" asked the apex predator in a deep, rumbling voice. "You are no threat to me. You are my plaything, my prey. You serve no purpose but to fill my stomach and keep those stinking lizards busy with your meaningless war."

And then Servius noticed the Wyvern. He had smelled it before but paid it no mind; The Manticore held no fear of the overgrown reptiles. Now he saw it hovering over him. But this lizard was no stranger to him; he had seen it a month ago is his territory, with a Hatchling and a half-EarthWing. When at last The Manticore had looked up at him, the Wyvern started to speak. He could read the drake's displeasure at his coming and hunting in its territory. Another rumbling laugh. Hunting? This was sport.

"I stalked this biped from my lands, lizard. And unlike you, I am equipped to hunt in another's territory and drive them from it if I desire to hunt there again. I also do not need wings to best a weak little lizard." The Wyvern's last remark about being a nice drake amused The Manticore. Had he been a human, Servius might have let him live a little longer for saying something so funny. And then the Wyvern turned his attention to Servius' snack. The great beast frowned at the biped.

Wake growled at the Manticore, actually thinking up how he go at winning a fight with him. "I may be physically weaker then you, I believe I heard it was Servius, but that doesn't make me a weak fighter."

Wake then turned his attention, all be it hesitantly, to the human. "And I don't know you human." The man just shook his head, and responded. "Yes you do. And Manticore, I am not threat to you, but I am not on the side of my own kind either. I freed this wyvern and his hydra friend. I can prove it." The human then pulled out a knife and tossed it to the ground. Wake just looked at the blade. He began to remember the blade, down to the pair of grooves that ran down the side. It was the blade that had cut him loose, but something still didn't seem right. "Anyone can take a blade." The human just frowned. He really didn't want to say what he was about to, but the wyvern was right. "I've met again Lewana over the years. She told me your name was Wake." Wake just looked at the human with confusion. How could he know that. The only way he could know is if he was telling the truth. Wake the turned to the Manticore, again speaking with a hesitant voice. "Put him down."

The two-legged lizard dared to growl at The Manticore--not that Servius was aware of this--and offered a subtle challenge. But Servius would ignore that, just this once. He had a more pressing manner to attend to. The predator's meal had been allowed too much room within its cage to move around; the biped was able to retrieve a blade. Servius waited until the puny weapon was on the ground before he transferred his prisoner to a new cell: the coils of his scorpion tail.

The toxic stinger swayed like a snake as it eyed the human. It might have possessed a mind of its own, the way it moved and seemed to study The Manticore's prey. It moved to the human's legs as the winged lion's toes moved one by one to make way, and slithered up them like the snake it seemed to think it was. Soon the biped was gripped tightly in the coils of Servius' tail up to his shoulders. The many spikes covering the tail pressed into the human's flesh, just enough to let him know they were there. They would certainly make him nervous with every breath, fear that breathing too deeply would cause one of those spikes to become a literal thorn in his side. If Servius tightened his grip they would impale him, not enough or in quite the right place to kill him, maybe, but he would certainly wish for it. The spikes would make the perfect guard if The Manticore decided to release his grip enough to move around.

Servius was much too preoccupied with deciding how to use his prey's new confines to toy with him to notice that the lizard was looking at him again.

The human finally got nerves as Servius' tail tightened, and had some relief as hit loosened, though still a bit scared by the odd way the stinger behaved. Wake looked at the Manticore and spoke, this time being more firm and confident. "Servius!
Put him down!"
The human just looked at the large creature, having an idea about getting out of this mess, and getting some added help. "What if I told you I could lead ya to about fifty humans that dragons, Manticores, thunderbirds, and the like would love to see gone?" Wake just looked at the human, trying to decipher what the man meant.

Quite literally, the Wyvern's words would fall on deaf ears. Servius still had not turned his attention to the winged lizard when it suddenly gained some confidence. The Manticore was paying great attention to his prey, however, and was able to read what it said. The hunter only laughed at the human's offer. Did he think the winged lion to be a simple beast, easily fooled? Yes, Servius loved a nice biped buffet, but he would never feast from one offered by a biped. One such could only be a trap: no human would ever sacrifice a small village of his own kind to The Manticore just to save his own hide. Besides, the beast would eat him, too, if only because of his betrayal.

"What say you if I decided to eat you now for even suggesting it, plaything?" The Manticore asked in his deep, gravelly voice. "Did you really think I would fall for such a trap? I made the mistake once, only once, but never again. If you are so eager to continue your pathetic existence, biped, you'll have to come up with a better trade..." The feline's tail coiled slightly tighter around its prisoner. The stinger eyed the human, growing more tempted to pierce his skin, to give him a taste of its toxic with every passing second. But alas, Servius wanted to toy with his prey a little longer.

The human eyed the Manticore, getting more nervous, but not showing much fear. "How about the fact that I knew this wyvern's true name, not Sea Spirit like the local humans call him, and his friends name? The fact that he of all dragons shouldn't care if you eat me or not, and has been yelling at you to release me? Me being able to speak with a dragon's tongue, or trying to meet even this small dragon alone? Or maybe the fact that these humans I'm talking about are known to take on 100 ft Earthwings with no problem? Manticore, I'm trying to help you! Can't you see that?"

Wake couldn't believe just what he was hearing. This human was definitely the one he remembered, but why was he here? Wake finally let out a loud, screeching roar. "Servius! This is my territory, so listen! Put. Him. Down."

Fear was not only visible, but it could be smelled. It gave off a distinct scent, a scent only prey or the weak had. The Manticore's nostrils flared, taking in the scent of fear that wafted from his soon-to-be meal. Servius enjoyed almost nothing more than the moment his favorite snack began to fear for their life. It was a glorious moment, indeed.

Servius' eyes carefully watched the biped's mouth as it replied to him, all the while looking forward to rewarding his belly for being so patient. As he read the biped's words it became clear to The Manticore that this little morsel had never had to began for it's life before. "Why would I care about these things? You speak the vile tongue of the lizards. So what? You bipeds hold them captive. You have to know their tongue to get them to do your bidding. You are stupid enough to approach a beast bigger than yourself. You obviously seek an early death. You happen to know this lizard's name. Good for you, plaything. I too know it, if only because he crossed into my territory. Your kind can manage to fell an EarthWing... you truly are the envy of us all. I am no Dragon, I am a Manticore. I can handle a pawful of bipeds. As for this lizard wishing your release..."

Servius turned his gaze to Wake, his eyes piercing. He had been unaware til now of the Wyvern's yelling at him, but this time he had turned in time to see the Dragon's maw moving. "...The affairs of a predator and his prey are no concern of yours. If you wish this biped's release, you should have caught him. By law of nature, he is mine, my plaything, to do with what I wish. If you want him, you will have to best me."

Wake gave Servius an angry glance, thinking through his opinions. If he didn't fight, the human's chances of survival seemed slim. If he did fight, at least he had an edge. Wake knew the coastal area like the back of his wing, so he could out smart the Manticore. The wyvern gave Servius a nod, his horns still frilled out. "If that's what it takes, then lets go!"

The human just shook his head as he heard everything. There wasn't time for this. He soon spoke up trying to stop the part. "We don't have time for this. Why am I even trying?"

The Manticore had only half expected the Wyvern to accept his challenge. After all, who would dare go against the might of a Manticore? "Let us see if you are brave or simply stupid, lizard." As a hunter does, Servius moved without warning, raising a large paw, armed with sharp claws, to swipe at the overgrown reptile's right side. If his paw collided with Wake, it would surely unbalance him. But Wake would have to be mindful of the fact that cats usually hit twice with one attack, for even if he managed to brace himself against the first hit, the second would come almost instantly after and surely send him off the cliff.

Wake reacted quickly, using both his wings and legs to jump back and up, and hovered there. At the same moment, the wyvern took two footfulls of earth with him. The dragon then whipped his body around, throwing the dirt at the Manticore.

Wake had been taught to fight with everything he could, meaning he often played dirty. In his mind, being as small as he was, it simply leveled the playing field and gave his a chance.

The hunter's keen eyes saw the dirt the Wyvern carried as it lifted itself above the earth. So the lizard was going to play dirty. The Manticore lifted a leathery wing to shield his face as Wake flung dirt at him. Servius Eirene Koinonia bared his yellow-tipped teeth in disgust. He was going to have to clean his pelt after this. He lowered his wing and looked disapprovingly at the Wyvern. "Ah, you use foul tricks, like prey! I have no interest in fighting one who lacks confidence in his power. You are no predator and I have no taste for Dragon." The Manticore turned his attention back to his captive. "The lizard failed to properly bargain for your life, plaything. But you may yet be able to do so. Win my pardon, biped, lest I quell the ever-growing pangs in my stomach with your hide."

Wake just stared at the massive cat with more than a hint of anger in his ghostly eyes. Servius was really starting to rub the wyvern the wrong way. He asked for a fight and then gives up, telling Wake he wouldn't face someone with confidence in his abilities. Wake was very confident in his ability to fight the Manticore. It just so happened that one of those abilities was some tactical sense.

And then the overgrown house cat said he's not a predator? The wyvern had watched whales create walls of bubbles to tightly pack schools of fish for an easy catch. He had seen predators on land and sea use the "trickery" of near perfect camouflage to hunt. Then Wake pulls out a trick and all-of-a-sudden he isn't a predator?

The human had the same idea. This was stupid! And when the Manticore said he must be the challenger, well he had a sarcastic response. "Why should I fight. The moment I use an arrow tipped with Nightwing toxin you will complain that it's 'A foul trick that shows a lack of one's power.' I think even the use of my bow alone would cause this! You have the personality of a two year old, whining because he didn't get his way. If I must fight you I while, but answer this: Do you truly think that a Rogue can survive here and not be predator, or are you simply scared that his brain may beat your brawn?"

The human then looked up to see the grey wyvern coming. "And I believe Wake has so would like to speak to you as well."

((Forgot what account I was on and didn't feel like switching and starting all over.))

The great cat laughed at the human's words. It thought Servius wished to fight it? Did the biped forget it was trapped? Or that it was merely a human? "Fight you, plaything? It would be no more interesting than a fight with the lizard. You would barely tickle my hide. I told you to win my pardon, not reach for an impossible dream. And you are unwise to assume my actions based on previous ones. An arrow, a bow, these are your only weapons, your only means of fighting. It is no trick. That wretched lizard has so much more at its disposal: teeth, claws, flight, breath, even its tail. Throwing dirt at ones eyes is naught but an attempt to flee. A desperate move to get the upperpaw, desperation before it is even needed. A predator does not fight another in such a way, especially over food. They stand and fight with all they have, they do not run away. So the lizard can survive at the edge of the sea on fish. That does not make him a predator, but a survivor."

It greatly irked The Manticore, Wake's chosen move to start the fight. Manticores were taught as cubs to stand their ground and rely only on what abilities they were given. Any creature with half a brain could fling dirt. It was fine if you wanted to escape, but it would not win a battle. For a Manitcore, their claws and teeth and tails were their greatest weapon, aside from their brute strength. Servius also possessed quills he could throw. It would be no act of cowardice, no cheap trick, but simply use of his unique ability. The biped and the lizard could say all they wanted; there was a difference between doing what anyone could do, and doing what only you can.

Wake finally came up to the Manticore's face. He had noticed Servius wouldn't respond unless he was looking at you. The wyvern didn't know why, but he had an idea of how to get the cat's attention. Thankfully the human spoke up before he could in act his plan. "We are talking about a wyvern a quarter of your size who has had to keep other Rogues out of his territory, and you setting the rules after the match began, but if you need a reason to spare me, the only defense I have is why I'm here. The humans I told you about. They're trappers that I have been harassing for years. I know both Wake and his friend from my first run against them. You may ask why I'd fight my own kind. To put it bluntly, I have more in common with your lot then humans, and they never treated me well. But these trappers, I would say ask Wake, but I don't want to make him relive it. I came for help to keep them from setting up here. They will trap any being like you and the dragons. And if they ever caught you and I couldn't get you out, you'd be lucky to be a laborer with a roomy cage."

The moment Wake heard "trappers" he almost froze. His thoughts began to race. Why were they here? What did the human want? Why him? Wake just shook his head as he came close to the human. "Why did you come for me? You know Lewana. She never took it as hard as I did. Why not get her?" The human didn't respond, he gave a sad look, but wouldn't answer.
