How they feel about
: trusts them and doesn't understand how other tribes can be so much trouble to elves, why not worship us!
Elves -- herders: very clever, leaving those animals all in one place for the hawks and hunters...
Elves -- magic users: >_> thought we all were, what's up with that?
Elves -- bond-riders: this is life the way it should be, shared with a creature of the world to remind us where we are
Trolls, etc: never met one, are they terrible and smelly and mean?
Bond Animal Info if any: had been bonded to a giant Hawk named Cheercall, but he died when the mountain fell (he was not fledged fully); she rides with a very high ability.


Apogee welcomed this newcomer to Bald Mountain with care. She was not a High One, like several other near that age. No, instead this was a member of a long-isolated group, one which the bone shaper - Bones - would relate to instantly when he arrived some twenty years later. They hadn't been remarkably close in Blue Mountain, but Uktui and Hathal now could chat and reminisce.

Of course, Hathal also had to tell her bone-shaping companion that Blue Mountain had fallen, a huge disaster that caused the Human tribe that worshipped them to move onwards, she found only death under and around the hillside and rubble, when she was well enough to climb again.

But this was a bonder, a bird-rider like Apogee had been, like Uktui was on occasion in the past. The best kind of rider... of dragons.

Thus when the gossipy dragons came back to the Holt with thoughts of another clutch about to hatch at Ayazah Yazai, Hathal was urged to go. She'd find something there, something she needed more than just a chatty bone-shaper.

And indeed. She did.

Her name was Hicath. A purple colored dragoness whose heritage would become obvious as she matured. Her long horns were gracefully carried; her crested neck held with a beautiful curve.

I am sorry about what happened to your bird friend, she bespoke. This mind was clear, not like the animal brain of a bird. Not at all what Hathal had expected, but certainly welcome. Oh so welcome.

"That's all right, Hicath, I have you now."

The elegant elfess knelt and wept for her losses and her treasures.

I have a beautiful harness - one of the stone shapers will help fix it up for you! It will be beautiful against your skin!

Name: Hicath
Gender: Female
Color: Stormwing Purple
Size: 9' at shoulder
Abilities: Teleportation, flight, fire-breath (non-assisted), telepathy (with bond and other dragons)
Parentage: Karenenth (mountain's note gold) and Arekith (red firestorm ryslen [stormy blue f Linneth/blue Kith])


Hathal and Uktui traveled with their dragons Hicath and Iceso across the plains, and over the vast land toward the sea. While Uktui was far from fearless, he preferred to remain in the air than to scrounge around on the ground as they traveled. This journey came some years after Bones had joined up with his dragon, and Bald Mountain was growing.

But these two, the gliders of Blue Mountain, Hathal needed to show her old companion the rubble, he had to see it with his own eyes. They arrived, and he could hardly believe what he did see: the mountain was gone, in its place was a mound, scattered far and wide. And bones - human, elfin, bird. No sign of the human habitation, it was long gone by now.

They stood, the two dragons having their own private moment, and watched the sun set over what had been their home for hundreds of years.

Hathal gazed past her friend, but then something caught her eye. Or perhaps, her mind.

Their eyes met, his violet-blue and her cyan, and they knew. A meeting like theirs hadn't happened while Blue Mountain lived - not since Hathal's birth or perhaps once or twice more. The Gliders were gone. But their legacy lived on, pure, as they joined in soul and body.


It took the slender elfess' body two years to produce their child, as all elves developed slowly in the womb. But they knew her name already, and they knew that she was as destined for flight as either of them had been. Chelden had the sparkling hair and eyes of both parents, and was welcomed by everyone including the other younger children.

"Never thought you'd see this, eh?" Hathal smiled proudly, "all these children. And near high-ones, half-blooded, and humans, all around in the same den." It was true, the aerie was packed with dancing and singing elves. How could they resist, after all, any excuse for a party was a good one!
