Summer has finally arrived! The sun has melted the snows in the north and the southern territories are beginning to grow uncomfortably hot and dry. Pups are being born and life seems to finally be getting back to normal after the cure for the disease was found. But how long will it last?
The cure has been found! Wolves on Anikira are recovering from the disease and life is moving forward with the promise of pups in many packs. And yet darkness looms on the horizon, daring the creatures of Anikira to relax and allow themselves to get comfortable once more.
Darkness once again gripped the new territory of Pax, and with it, a thin layer of snow had blanketed the land. Winter was a favorite season for the albino babe, it was when her coat did its best work. Her pale skin was an advantage, and the fact that she hunted at night meant she got to catch a hare or two off guard. While her preferences may have been a bit different, she would not rely on anyone to fetch meals for her. Small game was a non-issue, and Jaidah knew she could handle the animals on her own. Since meeting the devilish duo in the tunnels, the porcelain monster was ready to prove herself capable. Her life depended on it, she could sense it as surely as if their jaws clamped her throat now. Still, she slipped out on silent ghostly paws and made her way to fresh air. Limited by the sun, it was only at night that the little demon could make her ventures outside, there would be none to stop her. There would not be any restriction on her adventures with the moon, as her shackles existed by nature.
Powdery pink gaze sweeps the open meadow, a frozen pond lay stretched out in the distance. The young monster's goal wasn't the pond, it was the hills of snow and drifts she could get lost in that she wanted to enjoy. Disappearing was as simple as laying still as a snowdrift and wait. Even her brothers and sisters hadn't been able to locate her when she concealed herself this way though there were occasions when scent betrayed her. The childlike deity found a perfect rock formation, covered with snow and easy to camouflage into. Quickly, she hid in the snow, blending her form into the base of a larger stone in the scattering of rock. It wouldn't be long until something or someone would go walking by, and Jaidah waited with a patience that was beyond her young months. Would she find more monsters in the night? Or was a more friendly encounter on the way? Would she get to eat?

[attr="class","pltxt"]Leaving Rhett behind her had been the hardest thing that she could have done, considering that the fact he found her at all had knocked her completely off guard. All of the fear that she had worked so hard to face and conquer all came back to the forefront of her memory. Even now as she put distance between them she could feel her anxiety peeking. Looking over her shoulder every few meters just to make sure that no one was watching her. The overwhelming feeling that she was being followed kept her on edge. In fact she was so frantic that she didn't even notice the presence of the other wolf. Perhaps because her pelt mixed so well with the snow where she lay hidden. Still Katriona trekked on barely noticing the different smell of the strange wolf. After all this tiny little territory seemed to be a frequent path for all kind of lone wolves as they explored the north.
Kitty had enjoyed the snow, making a right mess of it, though it was back to it's pristine state now. Her stomach growling reached her ears, but hunger was not enough to stop her now. She had to put more distance in between her and the brute from her past before she would ever be comfortable enough to eat. Still it didn't help that she was not the best hunter and had been hungry awhile. Being without a part was very hard for her when she had learned no survival skills during her time as a slave. Serving and abuse where they only things that she learned in her natal pack. Now she was useless to herself and she knew that if Rhett really had a mind to drag her back to her homeland she would have very little defense. Tears started to prick at her eyes as her fear permeated her mind. Her chest began to constrict and her breathing became shallow. Panting heavily she tried to blink away the tears that blinded her. Everything crushed down on her at once and a sob broke from her throat.
Fear was like a brick in her chest dragging her down further and further until she could see no way to escape it.
The sound of paws approaching made the girl halt breathing to conceal her place in the snow, watching as the frantic motions of the other drove her onward. Rose eyes opened, watching for a beat as the other continued, hating the fact that she was too small to take down a pelt like this. The scared wolf was beautifully colored, in a way that made Jaidah want to possess the cloak for herself. It would be a fine bed, one that Jaidah would be more than happy with as a blanket of sorts. Hunger gnawed once more at the porcelain babe's gut, though she knew better than to pick fights. She was still too young for such things, plus she had no backup if the predictable happened. A circumstance happened to give her an already panicky wolf, and the young demon might as well have a little fun, right?
Devilish intent filled a roseate gaze, and the snowy lass was off. Moving a few paces at a time, watching the other intensely as she followed, making sure to duck off every time the woman looked to see if she was truly being pursued. It became a game, though as with all games, Jaidah grew bored with it. Instead, one of the times that the girl looked over her shoulder, the pallid demoness would be standing behind her, a few paces off. To others, she may look like a ghost, as she intended, but she hoped her sudden appearance would at least startle the other.
There had been very little fun in the young devil's life, she had learned to take her entertainment needs in her own jaws. Whether it was at the expense of another or simply to give out free heart attacks. Jaidah had to get her kicks somehow. Perhaps a good laugh would come for her, or maybe she would end up in trouble, either way promised entertainment.

Jaidah is one of the albinos on the site, a brand new character brought to life by a brand new player. It is interesting to see how such a pure looking being could be wrapped up in the angsty claws that is Irkalla! We will definitely be staying in-tune with this character to see just what heights Bird is able to take her!
