[Andaris Farms] A New Animal To Hunt

Rebirth Cycle, Ashan 25, 716

The surrounding lands were cultivated for farming and produce, it was much better than the stone and tight walls of the city, but it didn't really feel like it was one with the land, instead of shaping the land, it looked more like it was being crushed and rebuilt into what the city needs. As much as Aster didn't like it, he knew that this was needed for the city to live.

He pulled up near one the farm houses, a bit of commotion had stirred the community. Aster decided to investigate, though he was cautious because he was in a new place. He stepped forward, pushing pass the crowd that had gathered. He noticed a farmer near a body of a dead cow, mauled and mutilated, with bits of flesh missing.

"That's been the third one this season." The farmer sighed and looked at the crowd. "Nothing to see here folks, just another dead cow, keep your livestock in the barns at night and lock the doors. Danged beasts keep finding ways in." With that the crowd had dispersed and returned to their homes and jobs.

"Excuse me, seems like you have a problem?" Aster said and walked over towards the farmer. The farmer was a thin man, with rugged field clothing, he seemed like farming wasn't the right choice for the man, but despite the thin body, there was power in the man's arms. "Is there any way I could help?"

He looks at Aster with suspicion. "No need, young man. I don't need any help, besides we don't have any money to pay you for services." The farmer said and went off to get the corpse and maybe salvage some meats.

Aster stepped ahead of the man and looked over the cow. The claws and bite marks were deep and heavy, he whistled loudly through the wind and waited for a few trills and a golden brown owl swoops down and lands on Aster's shoulder. "Seems like a bear's grown a taste for beef. I require no payment, just the pelt and hide of the bear once it's hunted."

With that he pays no mind to the farmer and rubs Heath's head. "Look for tracks." With that the owl flies up high, circling the area for a few trills and bolting off to the forest.

Aster climbed on his horse, calling out to the farmer. "Mind if I leave my cart here?" Before the farmer could say anything Aster bolted towards the forest, following Heath through the brambles.

The sun shone incandescently, and with absolute brilliance however The Watcher carried on his day as per usual. He spent his time on the ground currently, and searched desperately for scraps of food. Skyard came across what appeared to have been a patch of berries with a ruby coloration; when he was suddenly alerted with a loud sound. He heard what sounded like a series of footsteps coming from behind him, and immediately ordered Aomaru to investigate. Skyard separated from his comrade briefly, and cautiously hid behind a series of bushes. He listened as the stranger wandered into his territory, and grew incredibly offended. What was this fool thinking by intruding on grounds that he should not have been?

Aomaru looked to Skyard, and waited for a signal to attack. The mandrill scooped up a somewhat sizable rock, and took aim. Skyard immediately grasped hold of his wooden bow which appeared to have been crafted by an amateur. It consisted of local wood, and string from the hair of a once living horse. Without a doubt it still had quite a large amount of draw weight, and Skyard did not hesitate to load an arrow to the bow-string. The notch impacted the string and he clasped the end of the arrow with his index finger, middle finger and thumb as he uplifted his cranium slowly at the target.

Warning was always said to come before disaster, and in this case the warning would be the advance of the large Mandrill toward the man. Skyard gave Aomaru a brief nod, and Aomaru advanced in a much more bipedal fashion than he typically would. The Mandrill took a deep breath and expanded his chest for a moment, and opened his mouth. Only to show quite a large display of teeth, and aggression toward the man who chose to travel in the Forest. Within the monkeys right hand was the large rock, and he began to beat his chest with his left hand.

Skyard waited to see what the strange man would do, and wanted him to be distracted by Aomaru. The Monkey was simply a distraction being used to strike fear in the target. However, if the target continued to advance complications would ensue. Low growls seemed to exit the Trees on both sides of the track upon which the traveler moved. They were loud, and incredibly feral one would easily mistake the sounds for something far larger than a Sev'ryn. Skyard absolutely despised intruders, and prepared to hunt the man if he so much as took a single step forward.

He began to slowly, but steadily draw the string back on the bow in preparation to shoot. Skyard took aim from the cover of darkness; despite the fact that he was not the most stealthy individual. He knew that he had just the right amount of coverage to remain unseen temporarily. He took aim, and fixed both his eyes on the mans left foot. Skyard watched as Aomaru made a fool of himself as he leapt up and down whilst slamming the rock against the soft dirt below him.

[Andaris Farms] A New Animal To Hunt

Aster had left his horse after a few bits of riding through the forest, following Heath as the owl flew high. The hunter looked at the ground, following a set of tracks, the tracks were strange, there were bear tracks here, but also some other set of tracks following along the bear's.

Soon enough, the bear's tracks split off from the strange tracks and headed off into a deep thicket of bushes and brambles. As the hunter was about to track his prey through the thickets, a loud thumping and hollering made him turn and instinctively duck behind a tree, pulling out his bow and hastily though sloppily nocking an arrow on his bow.

He peeked around the tree and saw a large Mandrill aggressively slamming a large rock in the dirt and thumping his chest. Aster held back by the tree watching the primate show his annoyance and dominance, Aster wasn't here to randomly kill whatever he encountered, he was here for a bear.

He held his bow at the raging monkey and slowly stepped away from him, following the track the bear had left.

Through the loud hollering and yelling of the monkey, Aster didn't hear the low feral growing near him. Heath hooted in panic and swooped down to Aster and furiously tugged on his collar, Aster followed Heath, knowing that the owl wouldn't pull him away unless he was in danger.

Just as Aster was pulled away, a large claw raked through the air where Aster's head was a few trills before. The hunter fired an arrow at the bear, hitting it on the forearm, making the bear roar in anger, and rushed forward with his claws, swinging wildly, trying to find purchase on the hunter's body.

Aster rolled away, though not before getting a painful gash on his left arm. Aster grunted and pulled out his kukri and got into position, completely forgetting the mandrill that was raging to the side, he was focused on his mark, not some territorial monkey.
