Summer has fallen on Anikira! The days are hot in most places and getting warm in others. The desert is growing more and more dry as the days stretch forward, and new parents are welcoming the future into their families!
The current season is summer in Anikira. The weather is getting hot and though the typically colder climates are warming, the deserts can be deadly this time of year! Pups are coming into the world and tensions are rising as some packs dissolve and others bulk up to protect their newest generations.
The product of a violent volcanic eruption, Igneir represents the fusion of two worlds. The ground has since cooled and has begun to heal. The resulting land bound Tas'alea to mainland Anikira while also eating away at some surrounding territories.
The southern edge of the Lleingas Woods opens out into a small, grassy belt, separating it from the ashy soil and fledgling sprouts of the An'ris Woods. Lleingas Edge is a favorite grazing area for smaller game animals ranging from dik dik to bushbucks, and the canopy is alive with birdsong and the chattering of small, arboreal rodents. The grassy belt beyond the trees starts off lush and green; however, as one draws nearer to the edge of An'ris, the soil becomes looser and more ashen, and the forest grass dwindles as a hardier breed begins to take its place.
West of the An'ris Woods lie the Tears of Leyina, a vast geothermal runoff area marked by seething waters, thick steam, and barren soil. Nothing grows here, and few animals pass through this place except to cross to a more hospitable territory. The water here is rich in minerals, though many find it too hot to drink, even in the coldest months. Here and there, the remains of animals that have died in this place can be found, the bones washed clean by the heat and steam. The air is thick with the stench of these remains and the natural odor of the hot springs dotting the area.
Where there had once been ocean, now there is earth. The waters have brushed against the air-filled ground, carving out a ground-level volcanic cavern into the ground. Though not far from the border of Vor'asa, this cave provides a stop for loners to rest their weary bones. It is impossible to enter the cavern during high tide, and wolves inside at this will find themselves trapped.
Time has brought healing to Igneir, and along with the cooled ground, life has finally begun to develop. Along the southern border of Acerbus, the woods have spread in earnest, the tiny sproutlings covering the ground for many miles. A light dusting of grass covers the still partially barren earth, but it is a sign that one day, the trees will grow tall and strong on this land.

Xerxes is known to Kairos as the Centurion. Accompanied by his hulking size and ragged looks, Xerxes is not a wolf to be trifled with. His love for Kairos and it's members is as strong as he, maybe even stronger. There is no denying the males loyalty to Kairos and Hyperion, having once been the young Emperor's mentor. Recently a father, Xerxes is determined to do right by his offspring and raise them in the name of Kairos. Though he has a hit and miss relationship with the mother of his children, Tallyn, it is not his defining relationship. Xerxes is a wonder to see on the forum, his posts always managing to grip the reader and Grimm, the player, writes him in a way that makes him as compelling as he is. Grimm adopted Xerxes and brought a whole new spin to him, whilst staying true to his core. We're all wondering how the rocky relationship with Tallyn will play into his relationship with his offspring.
