Character in Play: Tadashi

((For Yiska))

Tadashi was mulling about. It was completely out of his character, but the smell of this place had drawn his attention. While he was around Wolf Mountain proper, it had drawn in his nose. It was vaguely similar to home, that being the ashen scent that lingered with everything. While he enjoyed Fire, he did not expect to remain there once he was fully grown.

Tadashi was but a teen, though quite large in size. It was clear that his 3/4 of his lineage was Siberian Tiger, though what else of tigers was a bit more uncertain. On top of his bulk, he was quite a rarity. His coat was maltese, which was comparable to certain shades that were found in some domestic cat breeds. Among tigers, he was a rarity. His was the result of two uniquely color tigers, as were his siblings. Genetics was an interesting thing that Tadashi found interesting. Perhaps it was because his mind was always thinking, always calculating, always moving ahead. While he was not beneath the random attacks, blood drawing, or pain causing like his siblings, he guaged when it would seem profitable or at least entertaining. Otherwise, he wouldn't.

Tadashi's paws moved silently as he green eyes scanned the wastelands. The temperature was higher here, but he didn't seem to notice the increased heat compared to that in the face of the mountain. There were some perks to being acclimated to higher temperatures. His steps were well place as he noted some fissue lines where steam and smoke still rolled up from the earth. He wondered about the story behind this place. It wasn't one his mother had told them, so of course it was a place of interest. The question was, would he ever encounter anyone with the knowledge.

The death of this place was a complete opposite of the lively green feline. Taniku rarely ventured here, but every now and again she had to embrace the darkness that was the feline way. Still her vibrant shine of green was a direct offset to the dreary smudge of the land.

Her eyes traveled across and while Taniku held a higher light within she was not afraid of iffy about the land before her. Traveling was the best way to clear the mind, it was the best way to cure boredom and in most cases is was the easiest way to make friends or foes.

Taniku was a rather oddly built feline but she hunted and ran more often than many, she walked more than others and was not happy just laying in a den, it was strange she could keep a paw in a single place unless it was around a fire with some friends laughing.

It wasn't long before another game into the sight of the traveling tigress, and again another smell of Fire, that pack was sure out a lot, of course she knew Bandido would know why and she would of course read stars if they so felt like telling a tale. As with any creature, neutral until proven either, was Taniku's matto. Her green wings folded neatly to her side, "Hello there."

Tadashi continued to make his way around, looking at things, smelling things, trying to better understand this place. He truly was a brilliant young mind, though he made a note he'd have to become a solitary cat rather than staying in Fire once he was grown simply because the confines of pack life didn't fully suit him. His tail flicked back and forth absently as he paused near a smoke vent. It smelled strongly of brimstone, like a volcano. He'd heard mention of those from his mother, but never in much detail. Is that what was here once? A volcanic pit?

His green eyes were full of thought as a voice suddenly broke through. His ears swiveled momentarily before he turned to see the green tigress before him. She smelled very earthy... It made him think of Earth pack as he'd passed by once or twice in his life. He was not surprised by her unique coloration, seeing as he was a rarity among tigers along with his siblings and mother.

He did not offer a smile, it wasn't exactly something that he was taught in terms of social graces. Instead, it was a simple nod of his head and a return greeting. "Hello to you as well," he said simply. His mind had weighed the options of what to do, deeming that the best course of action. And just as suddenly, Tadashi found himself asking about this place, "What happened here? I didn't think there were faults or fissures in this region."

Taniku found the young cub curious about a lot. He seemed to lack the basic ability to greet outside of where he was from, maybe there very few smiled. But as she believed a path could always be changed. She was always more lenient to her own species, they had the added difficulty of being thought of as first a beast then majestic.

"The story here is a good one, a collie, by the name of Lestat, was so taken over and possed by a blessing called "Vampire Heart". I'm sure your parents have explained that there are some blessings that may harm the user, "Gift Giver" is another. Death cures Vampire Heart, and Gift Giver will continue to eat away at the user until it's done and then it starts over again. But back to the story.

Lestat's heart wanted power, and it was greedy for it, according the stories he'd lost all he loved and even attempted to kill his brother. He gathered followers and started to dig into our homes namesake. The mountain was known to be a dormant volcano and Lestat wanted to engrave his name in our history. Which he has done, the story rings fresh in a lot of creatures minds, those who fought against or for him still remember the battle as if it was yesterday. Wise creatures are telling young ones the tale always. I didn't fight, my dragons were sent to douse the fire and cool the lava, at that time I had nothing to give by way of battle.

Anywho Lestat kept the volcano at bay until the last minute with a sheet of cooled rock, you see Lestat is blessed with quite a few blessings himself. His last stand was to send a gift into the cave, and it triggered the eruption that took out half of the mountain and created this wasteland. A few died there, Lestat being one, there is word that he's returned, but that is only what the stars whisper from time to time."

Taniku finished her story for the little cub, "even the most horrible of disasters can make a land beautiful" She said taking a paw and using her fire blessing to pull some of the fire from one of the fissures, "Death has a different beauty from Life"

Tadashi listened to her, clearly interested. Perhaps it was because she was another tiger. The maltese colored teen wasn't exactly sure. Then again, the only other creatures he willing listened to were his mother and Aethelinda. Though the Brotherhood master did have some sway in his mind. However, he didn't vocalize any of this. He listened, nodding. This wasn't a story his mother had told him. Tadashi surmised that it was likely his mother was venturing somewhere else at the time and therefore missed the event. His tail lashed back and forth absently as she finished her tail.

He nodded in regards to her words on blessings. He knew of them quite well, possessing some of his own as well, though none quite so powerful as Death. At her comment of disasters making the land beautiful, Tadashi found himself smiling. "And it leaves way for the next great adventure," he said. His green eyes watched her manipulate the flames from beneath the earth with fascination.

He personally could manipulate the heat from the steam vents in Fire with his own fire blessing, coaxing them to erupt into flames, but never did he actually draw it from the source within the Earth. Again, he agreed. Even in Death there was some beauty. "If death didn't have any sort of beauty, it wouldn't be called the next great adventure after life," he commented, still watching Taniku and the flames.

Taniku wasn't sure that the cub was paying attention, if he was he had his own curious way of soaking up information. She remembered briefly her own sponge like mind, Travesty and Yiska now adults with their own adventures and lessons to learn. "My name is Taniku young one, What is yours?" She asked.

Taniku usually wasn't so forward as to ask names or to put hers out so soon, but in this case there was an exchange before an introduction, so this was the least she could do. Taniku laid near a fissure, the heat feeling good to her belly, Taniku rarely did sit, choosing to lay or stand in stead...it was just something about her long legs and sitting that did not sit well with her. "I sure hope your parents have explained to you that you cannot fully understand or appreciate the beauty of death before you understand it's opposite force." She turned looking up at the cub.

"The same thing that causes life, feeds it, makes it stronger, can, and often do cause death." She mentioned. Her own paw still playing with the fire, invoking earth to also play with the lava. now causing little bubbles, since using both blessings at one time caused for a bit more energy than one, she only made bubbles nothing fancy and no major molding. "Blessing usage is a unique thing, it is directly connected to you. You can do so much with so little with the proper training." She said to him.

Taniku was the inventor of many creative ways to use her blessings. Taniku wasn't the type to hide her abilities but she was not a show boater either...

Tadashi's tail lashed as he took a couple steps forward and sat near the same fissure but at a respectable distance from Taniku as to not be invading her personal space. The warmth was indeed nice, though he wasn't quite to the point of having run across his chest and belly. "Tadashi," he answered in return of the introduction, "It's a pleasure, I'm sure Taniku."

Her name was not familiar to him. But then again, he didn't focus on the names of creatures of importance on the mountain. Tadashi didn't take things at face value, after all a name was just that, a name. It took getting face to face and learning what made them tick. Taniku was definitely an interesting one in his mind.

"My mother speaks of it often and hopes I might see its wonders with my own eyes someday," Tadashi said with a smile. Yes, one day he would learn it first hand. It was one thing to learn it in tales and lessons and training, but to do it yourself and see it yourself was truly the best way to know. When the subject turned to blessings, the maltese tiger laughed. "My brother rather enjoys experimenting with his blessings. I'm told even with the right combination of certain simple ones you can make a storm. I'd like to see the creature that can control the weather like that," he said, clearly interested in certain techniques even if he wasn't quite capable of all of them himself.

Taniku smiled at his curiosity, she enjoyed it, so refreshing, "I've died, and been brought back to life." She stretched out her wings, "The life blessing is different from one creature to another, my dragon used life on me. This here, is a mark from the blessing, " As she showed him a string of white feathers down the middle.

Taniku lowered her wings. Well if he wanted a show, "I didn't used to know how to do that, but a fox taught me how." She said taking a look at a near by cloud and evoking the cloud blessing to pull it near, and others around it near, causing it to get bigger and bigger. The sky turned black as she filled it with rain with the use of rain, the sky opened up as it fell from the sky there was lightning crashing about and what is lighting without it's thunder counterpart...a storm had brewed, and Taniku had barely moved a paw. She Stopped her feed and let the weather move away, She sun slowly returned and the smell of sulfur slowly filled the air once again. "Well how was that?" She asked.

Tadashi nodded at her mention of the Life blessing having different effects on creatures. "I've heard of that. Though I believe the example I was given was of a wolf who had grown larger than any normal one because of it and it's seen in his offspring and descendants born after the time," he said, nodding a bit at the thought. Yes, different effects on different creatures whether it was based on the user or the creature returning.

The maltese teen tilted his head slightly. She could manipulate the weather?! He watched, clearly in awe. Of the blessings she used to create the storm, Tadashi only possessed Lightning, but he had every intention to gain the others to do what he was watching Taniku do. "Incredible. How many do you think can do that, besides you and the fox?" He asked, clearly interested even as she made the storm dissipate and the smell of sulfur returned. The smell of moisture in the air was something he liked more than warm places. His tail lashed back and forth. "Are there other weather based blessings?"

Indeed he was very curious. Different blessings that controlled different things would help him in the long run. Being able to control it would definitely throw a monkey wrench into the actions of others. That's just how Tadashi tended to be, one step ahead. But he had to learn it and know it in order to get there.

Taniku smiled at his curiosity, it would be refreshing to see this young one gifted with such power, but only if he proved he deserved it. Otherwise Taniku was fine adding him to the star's list, now that she's seen him the stars could show her his face. "Weather based, there are a few more, here I used, Cloud, Rain and Lighting, the basic that can alter the state of the weather. There is Fog, Sunlight and Snow Stars, they call on the weather." She answered, but this was Taniku she of course had to elaborate, "There is more to the elements than just the weather. I've got all elements co existing in my form. That's true harmony, and controlling them is as easy as controlling your temper."

Without a word Taniku, still laying rose only yards above the cub, with the use of earth, "But such power is for those with understanding" She said, allowing her column to retreat into the ground. As she returned to eye level, Flames sprouted all around the two felines, "Fire is a powerful agent, rage is channeled for it's control, you've got fire did you know, it's natural for all creatures, but channeling it through the body is different, takes more concentration and thus more energy." She said calling the flames back in. "Then there is the wind, who lacks any good ones but we can fly, that's a control over the wind many never experience." There was no need for Taniku to fly "Then you have water, who's combined with Ice," Taniku used her water blessing to propel herself upwards looking down and froze the water underneath her, "This all tires one out, so I'll melt this now" with enough heat she was able to gradually melt it and make it to the ground. "Even those who use it regularly like Bandido get's tired after such a show, and I almost never use my blessings so you can imagine the ravage it is having on my body" She said.

While the tigress was tired, most of it was mentally doing all of that takes an enormous amount of concentration, it was one of the reasons Taniku loved fish...keeping her mind sharp was another key to her blessing training. Her body didn't look tired and it was due to a constantly used blessing that kept her young. "Being able to control yourself is key to controlling your blessings." The feline thought to herself, boy fishing sounded good right now.

Tadashi had never seen such things from his mother. But then again, she preferred not to use blessings unless it was necessary or it gave her the advantage. The maltese teen listened to everything she said, taking the information to heart. These were all things he wanted to know and learn. Tadashi knew there were great powers and powerful creatures. But Taniku was making things look like child's play in his mind. If there were others more powerful than her, Tadashi would have to meet them.

This made him think of the Brotherhood master, Cortana. She was likely similar to Taniku in blessing skill from what he gathered. Tadashi did not say so though. The tiger nodded when she spoke of control. Of those that he had, the teen had control, unlike is brother who used them more carelessly when he did. But then again, Takeshi preferred tooth and claw anyway.

His tail lashed as he tilted his head. "Which is your favorite?" Tadashi asked. Surely with such a bounty of blessings, Taniku had a favorite she liked to use, coveted, or wanted to have.

Taniku lay still, thinking about fish. She did make it look like childsplay, but the feline had never had to use her's in a fight, for life or death. For Taniku Blessings were convenient. She appreciated their many uses to protect herself, make catching food easier or all things that she just find completely a waste of time. "Hmms," she said thinking and twitching her tail...I like Lava. It's fairly new and probably unfairly made my favorite." she chucked.

"If there wasn't Lava, I would have to say Green Paw." Probably not the blessing the cub would want to hear and it was a complete 180 from Lava. How amazing she could destroy land and then rejuvenate it.

Tadashi tilted his head curiously. Lava and then greenpaw? That was quite a 180 turn from what he had heard about the greenpaw blessing and then lava just sounded like it had to do with quite a bit of fire. His rounded ears twitched as he thought on it before he nodded in understanding. Perhaps lava wouldn't be her favorite if so many possessed it or she had time to work with it. His tail lashed back and forth as he gave a soft hrm...

"I think I prefer lightning among those that I possess, though I would quite enjoy having the ability to work the weather," he said going back to an earlier part of their conversation. Yes, weather based blessings used correctly and timed correctly could sway the point of a battle if the user knew what they were doing. Tadashi rather like that idea being the young tactical mind that he was.

Taniku smilled at the young cub, something so tiny could make a huge impact. He did choose a good group to focus on, those that you are more interested in are easier to gain. "What would you use those blessings for?" she asked. Taniku looked over the young feline with smiling eyes. his thirst was what kept her here long enough to find him intriguing.

"You remind me of my own children, one in particular." she said easily, "You should meet her sometime maybe you'll cross paths in your travel." She added taking a paw over her face to wipe the soot off of it.

Tadashi thought on her question. What would he do with them? That was a tough question. His tail lashed back and forth, his green eyes drifting skyward as he considered. "Honestly, I think it would be highly situationally dependent. There would be no haphazard usage, if that's what you're asking," he said. The maltese colored teen gave the best possible answer he could. At this point in his life, Tadashi couldn't exactly tell what he would do with it. He certainly wouldn't do like his brother and use them on a whim. No, it would be calculated out and determined if it was the best maneuver for a particular situation.

His tail continued to lash as his green eyes returned to Taniku. Reminded her of one of her own? That too was intruiging. He had never met another feline like himself, but them again he hadn't met very many other felines. "What is their name?" Tadashi asked, wanting to make a note just in case he came across a child of Taniku.
