Pet Name: Thrydian
My Camouflage Kougra, Thrydian, is very special to me. When he first came to be my pet, I had no idea what I wanted to eventually paint him. Together we looked through all the different colors a Kougra could be, but none of them seemed to fit either of our likes. Then we came across the Camouflage color. We exchanged a glance, and it was decided: Thrydian would become a Camouflage Kougra. Thrydian was so excited when I painted him Camouflage. He really enjoys the way his fur is now; he feels more elegant, he's told me, and it also accents his love for autumn, which is both our favorite season.
Thrydian lives in Shenkuu, and he loves the autumns there more than anywhere else. He really enjoys them because it's very easy for him to hide in piles of leaves or in the woods--his fur matches the tree leaves almost perfectly--and scare the pants off anyone who happens by him. Thrydian is a big jokester.
Thrydian's petpage has a short story I've written, and it's about autumn and Thrydian's home, Shenkuu. Here's a bit of it...
"...Further and further in you go, the auburns and golds enchanting you and drawing you deeper into the woods. The trees are spread apart just enough to let beams of sunlight pour through, only brightening the colors that lay spread across the ground. It is a lovely, peaceful place, this forest.
Suddenly, you hear a sound, and you pause in your delightful exploration. It sounds again, a quiet rustling, yet no matter how hard you look, you see nothing. Birds are your excuse, playing in the leaves and then darting away before they can be seen. But there it is again, nearer this time. The hushed rustling sounds behind you, and you wheel about, captivated by what meets your eyes.
A spear of rock juts up from the ground, rising a few good feet before stopping at a pointed angle. It is not the rock that fascinates you, but what is perched there. Atop the formation of boulder stands a proud feline, his features and posture held elegantly. His coat, you notice, is of the same hues that surround you, randomly patched by shades of brown and red, hints of gold touching here and there. He looks upon you with his mahogany eyes, and you wonder briefly if he might attack. Yet as you look back, you meet his eyes, where intellect and curiosity greet you. He is no threat to you. A moment passes where the two of you simply stare at one another, both enthralled by the other's presence. Your hands fumble upward for your camera, still hanging limply about your neck, and you lift it slowly, for fear of frightening the intriguing creature away. Quickly you snap a photo...."
There's more, but if you want to read it all, you can go to Thrydian's petpage.
