Hello there reader, and welcome to Ilvesia's petpage, a stunning female royal-boy draik! I hope you enjoy reading her petpage, and urge you to forge on, to read all about the character and story I have created for her!

You
Ilvesia

My family have been telling me stories for a long time. They tell me of the great gods and goddesses, that protect our people, that punish them when they deserve it, and reward those that have earned it. They tell me of every deity we have ever known, from the Mother to the Hunter.
Our deities are the Dracoria Felis, cat-like dragons whose powers can be as little or as big as the role they fill. One of my favourite stories is the Lynx Goddess whose eyes illuminate dark places; whose sight sees through all lies and secrets; and whose mind is sharp and psychic.
I have always been told these stories by the Lynx that guard our home also.
Perhaps it is time to pass the tale on to you!




A beast of a snarl breaks through the eerie silence of the forest, one that chills you to the bone. Your head snaps back and you look around, but see nothing of immediate concern. All light is devoured, so that not even the moon shines; instead it casts a dank, dingy light upon the beast infested grass. Something moves! You glance at your feet. You are quick enough to see a dark shape vanish into the grass.

As you walk further into the nightmarish forest, twisted tree roots seem to rise out of the ground. Eventually, they are trying to snare you, to devour you, like the clouds are devouring the moon, taking away its face, till a deformed grin is all that lingers in the never-ending night.

You realise by now, that the directions you had been given to the inn were obviously wrong and if you carry on wandering around, you will likely fall prey to a vicious wild beast that certainly would not care for a plea of mercy. You suppose, that if you lived in such a tormenting place, you might hunger for the first thing that lumbered across your path.

A sudden manifested chill cuts through your clothing and makes the hairs rise on the back of your neck and forces a shiver from you. A howl slices through the silence, and you flinch in fear. A single breeze slashes your cheek, freezing your blood flow.

I will die here. You whisper. You whisper your words because you are terrified that the smallest sound will disturb a monster. Yet you cannot just sit and let the forest take you. You carry on, ducking under curled, gnarling roots.

The walk stretches on, and you grow weary, the forest grows ever quiet. You wonder if that is the worst thing you'll see all day, are you approaching the open jaws of an even deadlier creature?

You hear the softest of sounds, like a... A purr. However, you cannot see where it is coming from with the tormented moon hindering your vision. You step forward and glance up, but the darkness has drifted from the surface of a silver face.

The forest lights up and before you sits a dragon. From the looks of her, she is certainly one of the Six Households of the Realm. Her fur is shining, bright and beautiful, in sky blue, with brown spots covering her fur, and decorative horns on her head. With her jewelry, it was no mistake she is of the High Families. You cannot work out which, never had you thought a high family would be out here in the deadly depths of a forest...

Being from the mainland and the cities, you know that you are encircled by four great kingdoms, but two of the greater ones are out in the darkness. Ilves and Kass. Which is this one from?

The purr that sounds out again, alerts you and you glance down at the smaller creature at her feet. A beautiful lynx is looking at you with what seems to be a knowing look on its face. The creature's eyes are stunningly bright and as the dragon looks at you, her own eyes are too bright. They bore through your soul and yet you can't be scared, for she smiles, and the darkness flees from her gaze.

My, are you lost? Please, come over and join me. I'm sure I can get you on the right path again. Or my friend can!

You slowly approach her, careful not to fall over any roots. Though you look down and they are no longer snaring your feet. You're from Ilves Castle? You ask, though you know the answer.

Yes, I am the middle daughter, Saffron. Everyone calls me Ilvesia though.




Name: Saffron Ilves

Original Name: Aquamarine Ilves

Nickname: Ilvesia, a feminine derivative that was taken from her last name.

Pronounced: Eel-verr-si

Gender: Female

Species: Female Royalboy Draik. She believes herself to be of the Dragon's Household of the Ilves, or the Secret Keepers of the Dragon Realms. Truly though, she is of the Dieties of the Draconic realm, specifically the Luminious Eyed Deity, the Lynx-Dragon.

Age: Her age in this cycle is twenty-so years old, athough she is reborn every few hundred years, so her true age is unknown. Each cycle she loses more and more of her memories.

Looks: Quad - Ilvesia's quad form is a furred dragon, with a feline-like stance and a body shaped a little like a tiger or lion, with a lot of muscle. Her fur is light blue, which is where she originally obtained her name, 'Aquamarine', from the stunning blue of her coat, so bizarre to her kind. She has two pairs of horns. Both of these are denim blue. The first pair are small, on the top of her head, located between her ears, curving backwards. The second pair are much bigger, on the back of her head, and curl upwards. They also have decorative black metal chains, with rubies embedded within. Ilvesia has a pink mane, one that is long, starts at the top of her head, falling around her face and running all the way down her back, to her tail. She also has fur of the same colour, at her elbows and ankles, as well as light blue long fur along her chin. Her eyes are furry and rather long, arching upwards, light blue with light pink insides. She has dark purple eyes and around her eyes a dark brown mask-like marking. Running down her back, from her head, and the tops of her legs, are brown spots, like those of a lynx. She has a pawprint marking on her back, left foot, that is light brown, on her front legs, she wears winged anklets. Finally she has gold chains around her tail and a gold necklace, with a ruby embedded into it.

Anthro - Ilvesia is fairly tall in her human form, and she is quite tan, because of how much time she spends out doors with her Lynx. She has an elegant, exotic look to her and her ears a little pointed, eyes a bit slanted, and her pupils are more stilted than a humans' eyes but less so than a cats. She has purple eyes and is very feminine in the way she dresses and presents herself, though it's only due to careful attention that she isn't left muddy at the end of the day with her cats. Her clothes normally consist of gowns and dress and small sandals, with netted tights, in blues, pinks and purples, sometimes browns if it is a special occasion. She often wears more natural colours if she puts on make-up, though prefers only to wear it in company, for it smudges and ruins when she's just enjoying herself. Finally, her hair is wild, wavy and pink, a brighter pink than in her dragon form, and is often pushed back by a jeweled headband. On her left foot, she has the same paw tattoo as in her quad form, and wears a necklace of gold, with a ruby embedded.

Family: Ilvesia believes herself to have younger and older sisters, as well as an older brother. As well as a fifty year old father when he takes his human form, and a forty year old mother. However her real mother was the Queen of the Felis but her father is only rumoured and gossiped about.

Powers: She can't really access her powers. Though she is reborn every few years, so that her 'vision' is cleared. It's a way to cleanse her, making her innocent and allow her to see through secrets, lies, but also see through solid objects, and even become Clairvoyant. However, because she has trouble accessing this, it is watered down to become incredibly good instincts but also the ability to talk to any species of cat, though specifically the Lynx.

Personality: Ilvesia is quite shy, and much prefers the company of her thoughts and the lynx and any other cats that wander into the household. Though kind, her gaze, intelligence and the way she seems to see through a person is unnerving to most. Some refuse to be around her because of it. Otherwise, her tomboyish-ness, and love for fun makes her a good person to be around.

Likes


1. Sweets, preferably cakes, or specifically the icing on cakes.
2. Reading, she loves reading more than most anything in the world, it helps her learn new things.
3. Tyron, her companion, who loves to tease those around the household.
4. The Forest, the one surrounding her home, she loves the darkness.

Dislikes


1. Squid, she hates the taste of squid, and when her family's cook serves it, she throws it to Tyron under the table.
2. Cages, Her darkest fears include cages, she hates them.
3. The Kass Household, they are predominantly arrogant and angry at the world. She dislikes the way they treat the other households.
4. Wolves, they always try to bit Tyron's tail, and often act sarcastic around Ilvesia.


Ilvesia moves over and runs her paws over the grass, showing a patch of green. You sit down on it, glad for the break. I've never met an Ilves before. You say softly.

We aren't that interesting.

But you are the... the leading household. She seems amused that you are this stunned.

Well then, let me tell you a story!





((Soon))


The lynx looks at you and purrs loudly. You jump a bit, but the cat seems to just laugh at you and curls up by Ilvesia. You find yourself starring at the creature. Ilvesia sees you staring and speaks softly, Tyron won't hurt you. He's rather docile. The cat gives a 'mrawr' noise and rolls over.




About Tyron: He is one of the Palace Lynx, though more wild than the ones that guard several rooms. He acts as a guide to the forests surrounding the House of Ilves.

Name: Tyron Ilves, Tie-ron Eel-verse

Gender: Male

Species: Lynx

Family: His family is unknown, and Ilvesia has never heard about them from the Lynx, so she doesn't know what happened to them, if the Lynx had any in the first place.

Personality: Tyron is fairly sarcastic and enjoys teasing people. When he gets grief from the wolves of the forest, he gives as good as he gets. Generally docile, he is not at all violent but he can give a nasty growl and if worst comes to the worst, he will bite and hard! Though he is as clever as Ilvesia, maybe more so, and his age is unknown.

History: Ilvesia found Tyron in the forest one day, she got lost and was not sure where to go. Though she was not scared, and Tyron approached her, and spoke, though to the cat's surprise, he was understood and she replied. Ilvesia took her back to the house and gave Tyron the name 'Ilves' to thank him for helping her get home. They have been together, ever since.


So, where are your family?

Back at the House, they do not like running through forests in the middle of the night.




REDOING



You sit back and tilt your head, Do the rest of your Household look like you?

Ilvesia smiles a bit, almost weakly, Actually... my family don't take a draconic form... I'm just... different.




I have no idea why I chose to make her design this way. Some aspects I understand; I chose the colours because they suited a female royal-boy draik, and the various decorative jewellery on her suggests wealth, suiting a royal. The majority of the rest of it, however, comes from her character, and I tried to make her design more feline, to fit the Lynx aspect. The fur and manes, were meant to make her more feline; I did the fur along her chin and lower jaw like the shaggy fur of a lynx, and her ears more furry; echoing how a lynx's are shaped. I also decided to make her spots brown as a more natural colour, as I thought it might suit the cat theme more.


I don't have much to say about this design, other than it just seemed to fit her image perfectly in my head. I don't really know why, but... hey, she looks kind of like her quad in this form, there are definite ties!


This time Ilvesia looks at you, leaning forward, she sniffs you a couple of times, Tell me, what did you plan to achieve by wandering through this forest?

You laugh weakly, Well, I am trying to find an inn!

Her loud laugh rings through the forest, You are very far out, the nearest inn will take you three days to reach.

What are things like in your household? Ilvesia asks, moving forward so that she is right before you, curiosity shining in her bright eyes.

Similar to yours would be I suppose! Why, what is yours like?




Surnames of the families;
Ilves - Lynx
Leão - Lion
Nixon - Leopard
Kaplan - Tiger
Panter - Panther
Kass - Domestic Cat

The families run on the strengths of the cats that they take their name from. The Ilves family are probably the most well rounded out the families, allowing them to be very smart, cunning, fast, strong, but also a tad bit confident, not enough to have the Kass arrogance, but enough to be convinced of their convictions. They lead the houses due to this well balanced character and the fact that the most important Goddess of the Dracoria Felis is very like a Draconic-Lynx and her daughter, the Luminous Eyed Goddess, also a Draconic-Lynx.

The Leão family, while less arrogant and not quite as rich as the Kass family, are still very full of themselves, with the second biggest House of the Realm (Kass being the first). However, much like the lion the family represent, the women do the hunting and cooking, while the men are trained to fight. This House is the strongest of the kingdom, though also the laziest, but when they are called to battle, they are brave, loyal and strong, willing to die for those they are sworn to protect and their families.

Nixon House is filled with scholars and librarians. They are the smartest of the Houses, though they also are the strangest, most outcast of them. It is said, a strain of madness and wildness runs through the Royal Nixon blood and every male that it awakens in, will be the fiercest warrior on the battleground. Despite this, they are nice, if strange people and often have good advice, or discover new things for others to enjoy.

House of Kaplan, are a set of people who are loyal to the bone, they deal with any and all messes assigned to them. Primarily engineers, they also can be hired as assassins, to remove traitors or those who have done something horribly wrong. Though they are not often needed for this job, they do it very well, and are incredibly sneaky and powerful. They are the most humble of the houses, and their House is the smallest also. Like tigers, their numbers wane, though not as much as the Ilves family.

The House of Panter are the most influential of the Houses. They keep the Realm in order, deal with many of the things that the Ilves family cannot manage. In fact, the two families are the closest and often celebrate things together. Their Lords are close as brothers and their Ladies as close as sisters. Panter was the House that discovered most of the things that shaped the life in the realm, while the rest was Ilves discovery. The one strange thing about the Panter, is that they are chained to death and as such, select few from the House can see when a person will die and the whole House will take weeks to mourn a lost one, before being able to face the world.

Finally, the Kass. The most arrogant, well off, pompous, pampered of the houses. None of the other houses like the House of Kass, for they have a habit of treating everyone else like dirt and thinking themselves in charge, despite it being clear that everyone chooses the Ilves for their kindness and balance. Kass keep in charge of luxuries, such as extravagant clothing, house decor and whatnot. They have built the biggest house of all the houses and quite honestly despise all the other houses. Not a pleasant bunch at all.


You look down to see Tyron playing with something between his paws and jaws. Ilvesia looks down also and seems shocked, Ty, don't play with that! It was a gift!

Do they tell you stories in your Household? Ilvesia asks, still curious about you, My mother sings me songs and tells me stories of our Ancestor and the Felis.




A Goddess Curse



They speak of a legend,
Where the eyes that light up the night,
Are purged in fire,
To scrape away the old,
Bringing forth the new,

A cat's eyes,
Bright and luminescent,
Sees through all lies and secrets,
Reveals truths in every corner,
Breaks apart the foundations of turmoil and greed,

A saviour of her people,
A god among gods,
A diamond in the rough,
The Luminous Eyed Goddess.

By Toni (Dracotamer46)

A Girl's Song



I can sit among these dusty shelves,
Watch the spiders spin their webs,
Glance at padlocked books and scrolls,
Wonder where to go.

There's a secret to find,
I know its somewhere,
There's a key to hunt,
I know its here,
I refuse to keep on waiting,
Refuse to stand debating,
I shall see.

Time carries on racing,
While my chances keep abating,
If I sit here any longer,
Gods only know I won't get stronger.

There's a secret to find,
I know its somewhere,
There's a key to hunt,
I know its here,
I refuse to keep on waiting,
Refuse to stand debating,
I shall see.

I hear it calling,
Is it here?
Is it there?
I wonder if my father knows I'm falling,
Fast!

There's a secret to find,
I know its somewhere,
There's a key to hunt,
I know its here,
I refuse to keep on waiting,
Refuse to stand debating,
I shall see.

There's a secret to find,
I know its somewhere,
There's a key to hunt,
I know its here,
I refuse to keep on waiting,
Refuse to stand debating,
I shall see,
I shall find,
One day these secrets... Ah...
One day these secrets will be mine,
And at last my heart can shine!

At last my soul shall be fine...

By Toni (Dracotamer46)


So what do you do out here all alone in the forest?

Ilvesia smiles and indicates Tyron. He wanders off for a bit, though it isn't a long time till he is back with a metal ring in his mouth, with keys on it, I forge my own keys to the rooms in our household. My mother and father don't trust me with theirs. She giggles and Tyron gives a snort before sitting down again, pushing the keys to the side.




The adoptable section will be updating as soon as I get onto a computer with my tablet. I want this set to be keys with paw prints, or patterns that can be edited to suit any design.


Tyron still seems to want to eat the thing between his paws, and Ilvesia gives an annoyed sound and reaches down to pluck it from him, You can't eat that! It was a gift!

She hands it to you and you see that it is a stone slab, Have a look! You take it, to see that a likeliness of Ilvesia is carved into it.





Toybox




You look up, surprised to see the silver face of the moon, is fading to show a sky painted in pinks, reds and oranges. A sunrisen sky. Beautifully bright and greeting. Ilvesia gives a laugh beside you, and she motions you to stand as she does, We were out all night. Come, I need to get back, but I'll show you the path that will lead you straight to where you want to go. As the young Ilves stands, her form shimmers, until standing in the dragon's place, is a fairly tall, but stunning young lady. In a beautiful blue gown, somehow not muddy or torn. Slipping on blue shoes, she motions to both you and Tyron.

This walk takes such a small amount of time, you wonder if it was just your imagination that made the walk into the forest so long and horrifying. You emerge from the forest to find yours standing at a crossroads, one road leads to the most stunning house, almost a castle, that you have ever seen and the others lead into the distance.

Ilvesia takes your hand and pulls you to the one road, Follow this road and you should reach your destination. Good luck and try not to get lost next time!

You smile at her and give a small bow, that she soon returns, Thank you very much Saffron Ilves, I wish you a good day! With a grin, she pats her leg and Tyron runs over, before they both turn and race off. Ilvesia giggling and Tyron giving a competitive growl.

You turn off down your road and begin walking, a feeling in your gut saying you are going the right way.

A day passes, after a couple of breaks, you still feel exhausted, sleep hasn't been possible after all. Yet the lights of your House brighten ever so slightly and there it is. Before you, home, sweet home. When you get in, you excuse the maids to go straight up to your quarters. Exhaustion making your conversation little but one word, 'Sleep'. It is the only thing that concerns you. You drift away into the blackness of dreams.

The next morning, you wake, feeling refreshed and less prepared to collapse into a mess of weary nerves and bones. It is only once you have cleaned yourself up and dress, that you see a curled up envelope on your bed. Sitting down, you unfold and open it. Inside is a letter and as you pull it out, a small sheet of paper falls out. It is an invite to the 'Ilves Family Ball' and on the letter, it simply says, 'See you soon, friend~'.

You find yourself smiling, See you soon, Ilvesia.
