Strix has been neglectful in forging a meaningful relationship with all of his siblings and today is trying to remedy that. The small boy had sought out his older sister and invited her along on a ‘patrol’ of Cedar Falls. Are the yearlings supposed to be out patrolling the newly added land? Maybe not but he had spied some predators that needed driving out the land the last time he had gone exploring with his brother, Morendo. Luckily, his willowy sister agrees to go on an adventure and the pair had struck out across the ferry.

Now, as they slowly walk through the land, Strix fills his sister in on the plan, “Okay. Last time Ren and I were here, I found signs of a pack of wild dogs. What do you say we teach them a lesson? Maybe kill a couple and chase the rest off?” He flashes her an eager grin before lifting his head to scent the air, paws move to adjust their course and intercept their targets. They stay downwind, moving until the pack comes into view. Mismatched eyes glance at his sister and he flashes her a smile before moving to attack.

Strix runs around the right side of the pack, giving them a wide berth until he is on their flank. They are lazily lounging in a patch of sun, drying their fur from the recent rain fall. He changes direction, charging the dog closest to him and swiftly darts in to deliver a bite to the unsuspecting dog’s face. Growls and snarls fill the air as he races away, the mangy mutts slowly stirring into action as the attacked dog whimpers in pain.

Ruse went out to the falls that were so newly added to their pack's territory, this time accompanied by one of her younger brothers. Strix and his littermates were just a season younger than her, but it felt like there had been a bigger gap in their ages than there really was. She chalked it up to just being mature for her age and the fact that rowdy boys weren't exactly her cup of tea so she hadn't spent much time with them up until recently. Now that they were a little older and not quite so insufferable she felt like they could hang out and do things together. That worked out really well for her since they were all yearlings now and could leave the island and she could have someone else with her so her father wouldn't worry so much.

She padded along with Strix and glanced his way with a lifted, inquisitive, dark brow as he mentioned how when he and Morendo had come out here they had found signs of a pack of wild dogs. For a second she wasn't sure why he was bringing it up, but then he asked if she wanted to go teach them a lesson. She smirked at his idea and the eager grin he wore at the idea and she gave a shrug before she replied, "Sure, why not." Even though she was learning how to fight and certainly didn't mind it she couldn't say it was her favorite thing to do. Still, she did look forward to going back home and getting to tell their father how they had chased off this pack of dogs! She knew it made him proud to see her learning how to protect herself so that would be a fun thing to come back and brag about.

Strix altered their course and she followed his lead, keeping an eye out for the dogs he spoke of as they went. It didn't take them long to find them and after exchanging and glance with Strix they move to get into a better position to launch their attack. Keeping down wind and to the shadows, they eventually made their way around to a good launching off point and right after Strix rushed in she did the same. She went for the dog a little more around to the left of the pack than the one he dove for initially, grabbing its hind leg just as it hopped up to react to the sounds of growls, snarls, and whimpers coming from Strix and the dog he had bitten. With a growl of her own, she bit down hard on the limb and pulled back with a firm yank, pulling the wild dog off of its feet and tearing through some of the tendons in its leg. She jumped back to avoid its retaliation as it twisted around on the ground to snap at her nose and when it tried to get up it limped and struggled to do so.

His older, taller sister pads along beside Strix and he is glad that she agreed to come along. Sometimes, his brothers can be… too much and it is nice to have a girl in his life. Plus, she doesn’t mind fighting things! Coolest. Girl. Ever. They find the pack of wild dogs and move to flank the group before actually rushing in to attack. The dog, who is his desired target, receives a bite to its face and, as he thrashes his head, he feels the telltale pop of the eye. Ocular fluid seeps into his mouth and he release the dog, rushing away while spitting out the foul tasting stuff.

Rusalka attacks another of the pack and the boy is proud when he hears the snarls and snaps coming from her direction. This is fun! Strix releases his own, loud snarl and lunges at another mutt that has decided to join the fight. The dog who lost its eye is whimpering and slinking away, blood covering the fur under the now empty socket. He lunges forward, smacking into the side of the new challenger and growling as he bites at its ear. Unfortunately, the dog shakes him off and the small Klein boy sets himself for one more attack.

As her first target ran off to avoid any further attacks, she pivoted to look toward Strix just to make sure her brother had his own fight handled. It seemed like he did, but she still liked to make sure. As she was looking his way and watching as he went after a second dog with a bite to its ear, she spotted one of the other dogs rushing toward Strix—seemingly to come to the aid of its pack mate. She snarled and lunged in, grabbing its scruff before it had a chance to reach her half-brother and pulling it back away from him. It flailed and snarled and did end up ripping itself out of its grasp, but not without tearing up its own scruff with her teeth in the process. There was a big gash across the back of its neck by the time it was skittering away from her and apparently that was enough to convince it not to mess with them any more. So much for saving its comrade, she supposed! She turned then, looking to see if there were any other dogs that were brave enough to stick around besides the one that Strix was currently engaged with or if they had gotten their point across that this was no longer free territory for this pack to hang out in.

Strix fights the mutt that decided to attack, jaws aiming to close around its ear. A flash of black and white catches his attention, throwing his attack off and allowing the dog to shake him off. Mismatched eyes turn to find Rusalka dragging away a dog that had tried ambush him. Heat flares in his cheeks and the small boy turns his attention back to his own opponent, teeth flashing as he viciously latches onto its ear. With a loud snarl, he tears the ear off the mutt’s head. Blood drips from the area where the dog’s ear was and it yelps and retreats.

Strix stands his ground, tail stand up and curling over his back in a show of dominance as he clutches the gruesome prize in his teeth. Lips pull back, a deep growl rumbling within his chest. The mutts hesitate, looking between their group as they silently weigh their options. If Rusalka joins him, the small boy is certain that the dog’s will lose their nerve and leave. He stands tall, being as intimidating as he can be with such a short stature.

When she noticed the pack of dogs hesitate and linger on the fringes around them she stepped a bit closer to Strix, her own lips pulling back into a snarl as she followed suit and went to intimidate them as best as the smaller boy and the soft, feminine girl could manage. Their growls and the proof they had already given that they could handle themselves seemed to finally send a message and the remaining bloodied, beaten wild dogs finally took off, disappearing into the woods. She figured they were probably unlikely to come back after an attack like that, but if they did they'd be ready for them! As soon as the coast was clear she turned to Strix with a wide grin, saying, "We did it!" Giggling, she swiped her tongue over her muzzle to clean away some of the blood that had gotten caught there before tipping her head down to swipe a lick over his cheek to do the same for him. "Lets head back! We gotta tell dad! .... Maybe don't tell our moms though." She grinned and gave him a wink before trotting back toward the island, eager and happy about how their day had gone.
