    Eein Dresden

    Eein had been taught to hunt at a very early age, it'd just been a part of his life, almost all the meat him and his parents ate they'd hunted themselves. So finding that the island had a forest that acted as a hunting preserve for certain creatures, like dragons, had been a pleasant surprise.

    So he'd found himself hunting soon after his arrival, always alone, that is until more recent events. Joining a clan, being part of a dragon community, that was all quite new. That said, it wasn't bad, quite the contrary, he hadn't met many of the other Alpine dragons, but the few he had were nice enough.

    Eros fir example seemed kind and he was good company, even if he did look like a video game boss he'd killed in a game before. So today they hunted together, Eein having brought his bow and quiver with him, he preferred hunting in dragon form but he knew how to use a now well.

    "Was hunting common in the community common?" he'd ask, a little curious about what it was like, his father had never spoken about his former home.

    Aros was happy to be in the woods again. The last time he had come out here had offered him a clarity he had been lacking in the city. Not only was he at peace once more he also had company. New kin at that. The young man was a recent adopt into the clan and Aros felt it necessary to put his best foot forward. Joining into something bigger than yourself had to be overwhelming for a young mind.....or maybe not Eien hadn't been fond of the clans original home or its history. If anything the boy probably felt more estranged by the whole situation then he would have if he understood the breadth of it all.

    "Yes, while we do farm it is the tradition of hunting that many pride themselves on. In my family, we bleed the child earlier in lofe so that they become aware of the danger presented in hunting those stronger than themselves. "

    He remembered his first hunt with his father and uncle. He and a cousin spent hours listening to the lecture on what to and what not to do. It was torture but Aros was grateful for it now.

    "Of course, we don't let them get fatally hurt but there is a respect that must be had for the act that we try to instill in our young. "

    Aros listened out to the surrounding sounds as he spoke, waiting for anything of interest. The magical creatures here were of resounding sport for him and he had taken pleasure in felling the giant deer prior. This time he hoped to get another and take a picture. He was still trying to understand all the options on his phone. When he told his kids about it they refused to believe him so he needed proof.

    He'd hum a little in thought, listening as Aros told him of the hunting tradition, of how he'd been introduced to it. "My father did something similar," he remembered being taught how to taught, the things to do, the things one should not do. "We got most of our meet from hunting."

    The young dragon sniffed the air, taking in the scents of the woods, the animals that were near, the ones that had recently passed in the area. "Deer that way," he'd motion to the west, "a bear passed an hour or so ago, going that way," he'd motion ahead.

    Crouching, he'd sniff the air again and look over the ground for tracks and signs. "I've been bringing venison home for me and Huilu," his nose would twitch a little, "we should have our uh...families get together for dinner."
