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.
A product of the first volcanic eruption of Pievunt-An, Ina'mos is a large island nestled north of Tas'alea, but still on the western side of Anikira. Animals and smaller plants coat the island. The plant life has exploded in the past years, and wildlife inhabits virtually every inch of the island. However, chunks of volcanic rock still litter the ground as a reminder of its origin.
This beautiful waterfall provides the primary source of drinking water for Ina'mos, feeding life into the swamps and allowing the Veldt to prosper. Few outsiders know to look beyond it, but to those who reside on the island, Liandry Falls is also their primary den site. Just behind the water lies a small cave opening that gives access to several dry tunnels and outcroppings that allow semi-private nooks for each nesting wolf, complete with the soothing ambient noise of rushing water and constant access to fresh water.
This unique coral ring rests just below the surface of the water to the west of the island. Beneath the surface rests a dormant volcano, and the coral is accessible by a short swim. It is home to a multitude of large food fish and aquatic creatures. The coral is so close to the surface that it can be walked upon.
The damp soils of the southern half of Ina'mos are home to a variety of large creatures, such as crocodiles, and a plethora of colorful birds. The land is difficult to navigate safely due to the dangerous animals that inhabit it, but it makes for great hunting grounds for the brave soul.
Bel Veldt, named for the beast that once conquered the island, is a beacon of tranquility and a prime hunting ground. Covered in fuzzy crocus blooms that stretch as far as the eye can see, the Veldt makes an excellent home for prairie dogs, though it also boasts a welcoming ecosystem for ungulate prey. It is a true foil to the dangerous swamp to the south, and though it is nourished by the same river, this prairie is the kind of iconic homeland many wolves dream of.

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.
