There's nothing FAIR about War---x
You are listening to Avatar-Bioluminescence of the Night . . .
The steady crunch of leaves underfoot could be heard throughout the whole forest, echoing against the trees. The pace was slow to those who listened, and painful... Hazed shafts of light fell down through the spaces left in the canopy of the trees, gently falling over a dark, demonic-looking figure.
His eyes were the first once to be noticed, as strikingly blue as a night filled with the bright stars of the heavens. Yet, looking deeper, one could uncover the hollowness of their beauty. It was the hollowness that was felt when a creature was near death, but yet thie figure stood trodding with a steady gait.
As he approached, the figure turned out to be one of the canine breed, with an anatomy relatively close to that of the ancient species known as direwolf.
Dark, looming clouds swirled with threatening speed high in the night sky, their movement causing distant rumbles and groans; there was no moon that night, yet there was a steady grey light that fell upon the wolfish creature…
I see you've come across my stronghold, human. As you probably know, and SHOULD know I'd assume—my name is Ichale. It's the name of someone who's amazing and good-looking, you see?" The demon struck a wry pose. "There aren't many visitors, so yeah... stay awhile. That is, If you don't mind this country being in a state of war. But hold up-! We're in peace at the moment, so there's no need to goggle at me like that!
Ichale blinked deep, sapphire eyes. "Hey, you may as well follow me around." The wolf shrugged carelessly. "I can show you things that none of you humans has ever encountered before...
A B O U T I c h a l e------x
One thing all beings must know about Ichale is that he is two-faced. Or to be more specific, he normally shows the face of a chill and determined direwolf.
Once in awhile, when Ichale is caught in humane situations such as murder, the hidden soul of a warlord will arise within him- causing the unearthly, two-sided dispute in his own personal mind that so many creatures have seen. . .
The normal direwolf is taken over by a murdering, heartless machine when war rages. Yet, the soul still thinks for itself. His normal identity drifts back to the surface to take control during peaceful years. The ongoing switch of these two minds causes frustration deep within his fading heart.
Ichale is legend in the northern mountains from sophisticated direwolf packs, to the barbaric, warfare-hordes of the dragons. From ancient tension, fierce war continues among his race as Ichale continues to lead the vast race of the direwolves, and there will be no stopping it. . .

The . Territory ---x
Here are the abyssal lands
. Where I live, aaand pretty much the only place I know. Some places are-- you know-- pretty cool landscape. *grunts* Others, like the dragon territory: not so much. As warlord of my kind in this continent (something like a warlord? Man, who knows.), I know theses miles like the back of my paw.
There is no place like home... Usually, at least. There is no war or anything goin' on right now, so everything's chill and good. Here, there's plenty of kau and gnorbu to hunt, water to drink. . . the best life a direwolf could wish for, yeah? Unfortunately, good times don't last for long.
Lake of Purity
I get it, guys. The name is cliché. Even more cliche than YOU. *laughs* Hm.. ignore that. Don't want you running away right now. Anyway... I'm not the one who named the place. Purity has been here for centuries upon centuries, when the old wolf bags that are wrinkly like raisins were only little pups. Ancient like heck, and somehow the normal natural disasters don't change it at all.
When you first see this place, it just looks like any normal lake, yeah?
But it's also a place of healing. We come here to bathe when we're troubled; For when we need to heal the weak, wounded, or dying- mentally or physically. This lake is another reason why the dragons care to fight us. Because Purity does not only have powers of healing, but of magic, as well. I don't even understand completely how the magic works here . . . But it can be awakened to be used in dark ways when discovered by the wrong paws.
Enemy lands. Only strong, bold, and amazing wolves enter these lands in his life. (Heheh.. like me, yeah? You know it.) Well I mean, obviously. . . We can't have pups and mothers dying for our race, now can we?
The Dragons are able to build a civilization similar to humans. They seem to worship human beings, seeming to think that construction and similarity to that intelligent race will make them kings. (And only because they have thumbs to build)
But I know that they are only weak-minded. They have abandoned ancient teachings and thrown away their once prideful heritage, in exchange for becoming slaves and followers of another race. It's absurd and barbaric.
Plus the simple fact that their attempt at becoming the humans that exist today is still far from successful.
This is the border between dragon and direwolf lands. The border hasn't changed for the past few decades. Most of our small fighting ends up occurring here. It's the attack and flight maneuver for us, while the dragons just charge and attack with their hardiness and physical strength.
No one has ventured under the cliffs for the past few years in our time of peace. Though everyone knows what's down there. And it is that, that nobody wants to see. Only the carcasses and remains of ... brave and foolish warriors, and the ragged skeletons of the dragons. Those bold warriors, once loving fathers and loyal friends. Now just leftovers of battle. Heh. So this border is like a recycling bin for corpses. Great. That's the sad fact of the life we lead.
Favors . Disfavors---x
I'm not too sure myself what or who I like or dislike. Most other strongholds of other lupes introduce themselves in this way though... Sooo I'll just make my little list anyway. *smirks* Would you believe me? Maybe this whole list isn't even true.
Likes: peace, sunlight, quiet, chess, thought-games, families, true friendship, wise minds, sleeping
Dislikes: war, atrocity and tragedy, disloyalty, followers of bribes, weak-mindedness, any conflict, humans, stupid things
Hmm.. what else is there to mention? *lies down* You may as well sit down for a bit. It's rainy and all, and I've come to one of those moments where... I randomly feel like teaching you some aspects of livin'... well, life. I've written it all down in a journal, so we can all follow these rules and remember how to live properly... you know, I mean, just in case we forget about what living is about? ... Why are the looking at me like that?
*struts around* Hm. I'm trying to think…… what else is there to say. o_o I suppose there is that little strange guy that follows behind my pack.. .
This creeper has no name, I guess. Or, if he does, he's never told me or anyone else. I've never actually heard him squawk, for that matter. Let's see... the guy's been around for many, many years. Apparently he's an eater of carcasses, similar to the behavior of vultures and the rest of that filthy lot. Since the direwolves have always been in a state of war, he chose to eat our leftovers personally. *shivers* Serious creeper, right there. But we don't bother him, and he doesn't bother us. If he wants a ton of dead wolves to eat, then whatever.... It's not like a dead body is any use to us. Even if the body was once a family or friend, the original soul is long gone ...
Yeah, it's depressing, I guess.

This girl has passed through my territory a couple times. She's very wise. And can almost seem to do some kind of magic. Some of my kind would call her a seer, but she says a definite no to that one. And eh. . . her age is unknown to me, but with her kind of wisdom . . . I would think she's immortal or something. Only God knows whatever the girl is up to.
Anyway, nice to hang around when you're under stress, she doesn't really have a care in the world. Yup.
I've only met this fellow once in my life. That was almost my last life, too. I almost died in one of the battles with the dragons. Extremely near death, probably . . . hm. As a matter of fact, maybe I DID die. . . I couldn't tell. I can't remember. But I ended up returning to this world, with the courtesy of this male. Yep. A male. I thought he was a freakin' female when I first saw him, for crying out loud. xD Aside from that quirk, he saved my life.
Or should I say, he spared my life.
She hangs around the border of my pack sometimes. She's strange . . . and kinda a creeper, if you ask me. It's not her fault at all though, that she's turned out like this. Her history is too long and painful to mention to you at the moment, though. But you can always travel to the exteriors of my terriotory~ especially at night, you will be able to spot her easily.
*smirks* Some of the pups think she's a ghost or monster, since they never got the chance to take a good look at her. Though, I hope she doesn't take offence that I mentioned her in that way . . .
