The cool morning wind greeted Nightsfire as he stepped from the Ranger training barracks and peered up at the cloudless blue sky. Today was a day for new beginnings and a lopsided smile crossed his face as he squinted against the bright sun. Anton had left the stedding and Nightsfire had been asked to take over the training of his student Raithgar. From what he had been told the young man was well on his way to being very well versed in the art of combat but that was not all there was to learn. After all he himself had believed that weapons were all that needed to be mastered to be an elite Ranger. Chuckling as he walked from the training compound he thought back to just how wrong he had been. Deciding to begin Raithgar’s training with the mastering of his newly enhanced senses and combining a bit of herb lore he made his way toward the lake where he had sent word for the young man to meet him. The houses and buildings of the stedding village left behind him Nightsfire made his way up a well worn path that led to the lake. Pushing through some foliage he emerged in a clearing overlooking the large lake and sat down next to a tree to wait. Quickening’s thoughts entered his own and he saw images through the big she wolves eyes of deer and felt the thrill of the hunt as she prowled with her brothers and sisters. A moment later a rustling in the trees announced the arrival of his charge and a young man emerged with dark hair worn in a Shienarian style top knot. Rising to his feet Nightsfire smiled and held out his hand. “I am John Dunbar it is a pleasure to meet you. As you may have been told I will be taking over your training from Anton.” The lad had the look of confidence in his eyes which was good and he stepped forward to take his new mentors hand in his own. “We will be working on senses and herb training today. But before we begin please ask any questions you may have of me.” OOC: John is about 5'11 medium build mousy brown hair and a medium build. His wolf name is Nightsfire and his wolf companion is Quickening.
((Bleh, hate to submit this, but I've been a long time coming with Raith's intro.)) A moment of shock caused him to inhale sharply. A smile spreading over his lips, and he looked to the rugged man who had took him thus far. He smiled, and spoke in that deep Shienarian accent of his, "Peace, you going to stand there all day grinning like a pup at his first kill?" Raithgar shook his head, the man's normal gruffness wasn't in it today. They continued tracking through the forest, the heavy foliage and heat not faring well with the native Shienarian boy. Still, the most disturbing thing was knowing that he was being watched, worse yet was that he could feel the watchers. "Don't worry, they are just patrolling." He nodded, and tried very hard to ignore them. To his surprise, it worked. Wish I'd known that sooner... It was nice to have his head to himself again. A bit further in, he noted a building, and looked to the tracker, "The sages will explain everything you need to know. Just keep up, we're almost there." Raithgar again nodded, and his smile only grew. Finally, he'd get all the answers he needed. The tracker led him to another cropping of buildings, specifically to the largest one, and took him inside. Once inside, he was told to wait, and both men did. Raithgar perhaps, a bit more impatiently..
