Jack listened to Maka's speech then Kolven's "Ark was the bravest of us all, never straying from what he thought would be best for everyone." Kolven sighs and then continues."His wisdom will be sorely missed, but not nearly as much as having him beside us." The feeling was far more mutual on that part. Ark was an electric buddy and a great friend with his wisdom. However there is noone in this world that can replace Ark nor can they claim to be smarter than him. It was as if Jack wished Ark to be returned to life and given a second chance to walk amongst them again. Fate though was cruel and merciless. It shows nobody any love if their fate was sealed from the beginning. That's how life worked. Jack's ears perked up as he heard Finn talking with someone or threatening someone. The Pikachu went to see what was going on.

Finn spotted a human and a talonflame. Who the hell was this and what was they planning. "Hey there," He looked up seeing the Talonflame perched in front of the gate. "What happened here?" One part of Finn wanted to tell the Talonflame to fly off but the other part said something else as in be friendly and not provoke Jack's anger. "Don't be alarmed. We don't want any trouble." She sounds more sympathetic to him, maybe it was luck that she came. "Do you.. need help.. moving your friend?" Finn just flapped his mouth without words coming out, the Talonflame was more intimidating to him than any other fire type. Inside his mind though was more going into overdrive. Say something you drongo! She's wanting an answer not an awkward silence from you. 

Jack came up to the gate and answered for Finn. "If you could please." He was going to power up the gate for the human to come in. The Pikachu knew that Rae left in search of Ark's killer to terminate it, maybe this human can help out while they could. But when he seen the Talonflame, his thoughts then turned to Finn seeing the Braixen just being awkwardly silent. "Don't mind him, If he tried to scare you off, sorry about that, he's supposed to be watching for undead. Also to let you know, we do have an undead meowth with us, she hasn't done anything to us so far and from what I can tell, they're looking for a lost sibling. As for what happened here. Something grabbed a friend of ours, a Luxray named Ark and killed him. I couldn't see what it was for sure but it was a grass type."

Clover 102 || Kolven 82


With Kolven's head hanging low he struggled to think of anything appropriate to say. Truthfully, he barely knew the big cat, but felt a kinship with him that would be sorely missed. Time was so short, so fleeting, and there were so many things he did not get to ask. Such as, where had he come from, how did he end up here, if he had any dreams. He hadn't asked any of his new acquaintances such aside from Drake's probing. He had to make time, he told himself, as there was never enough in the world.

Then he heard it. The flapping of wings, the sqwuak of a voice he did not recognize, and as he looked up from the frozen ground he was shocked to see not only a new Pokemon but another human that he did not recognize. How long had it been since he last saw one of there kind before coming to this mountain..? Legends have mercy. Was this where they were all hiding? Finn stood at the fence, their first line of defense as he stared, wide eyed and mouth agape at the sudden human literally descended from the sky. He was understandably spooked, and while Kolven wanted to assist him he realized they were staring off toward his sister. It was enough to send a wash of panic through his nerves, but their voices were calm and nonthreatening even within her presence.  

"Don't be alarmed. We don't want any trouble."

"Hey there. What happened here?"

"Do you.. need help.. moving your friend?"

Information.. gentle words seeking information rather than lambasting his choices. "If you could please." Jack's voice came up from behind, with an explanation quick to follow. The Pikachu's quick trust in the newcomers was enough to relax the cat's nerves, and he followed with his own little addition. "It was.. very sudden." Kolven said honestly with a heavy sigh. "Whatever it was came out of nowhere."

Having requested their aid Kolven meowed to his sister, the molly staring deep into their makeshift grave. Was she judging its size, its depth? Her good ear flicked, acknowledging his call, and after a few more seconds her paws turned to head his way. Coming to his side the tom was quick to lead her away, offering space to their newcomer who was somehow going to move a stiff Luxray. "I'm Kolven," he offered an introduction, having realized the awkward situation she was traipsing overrode the need for such formalities. "And this is Clover." The molly set her good eye on lock, watching the human with a firm yet curious gaze. "You have my word Clover will not bother you." He meowed, and while he did not believe the words were needed he didn't want to spook the human into doing something stupid.

This was a bad choice. God, what the hell was she thinking? By some miracle she was not outright attacked, the group seeming more spooked than anything, but the looks were not initially welcoming. The Braxian that stood closest to her, its heat almost palpable, stared with an emotion she could not decipher, and mouthed something indecipherable at her before another Pokemon quickly nudged past it. Is he mute? If it was playing defense, keeping watch as she presumed, that would make for a real shitty guard.

"If you could, please." The Pikachu asked, and while it could have been her imagination Green swore he sounded a bit desperate. She nodded as her offer was accepted, talking his word and the lack of protest from the others as approval. Checking with Flamey the large bird seemed to agree this was no trap, unfortunate timing sure, but safe enough to intervene as they so rudely had. Clutching onto him the powerful Pokemon easily brought her over the fence and into the heart of the fire. If they wanted to attack her these Pokemon had all the means now, but instead she received a hurried, pained explanation.

"Don't mind him, If he tried to scare you off, sorry about that, he's supposed to be watching for undead. Also to let you know, we do have an undead Meowth with us, she hasn't done anything to us so far and from what I can tell, they're looking for a lost sibling. As for what happened here. Something grabbed a friend of ours, a Luxray named Ark, and killed him. I couldn't see what it was for sure but it was a grass type."

Grabbed? Looking beneath the sheet of white upon the body Green could not see any wounds, but even a layer of snow could not hide the hideously broken neck and jarring angle of his head. A quick death. And one that should prevent him from reanimating. Whatever had been here had been more merciful than these Pokemon realized. "I'm sorry for your loss." She said with a heavy breathe. Those words seemed so hollow, so over used, so meaningless these days, and thus they felt so on her tongue. With a weary glance at the undead Green confirmed its.. lack of bloodthirsty motions toward her or any of the other Pokemon before reaching for her Pokeballs. "I'm Kolven," the other Meowth said to her, perhaps catching her gaze. "And this is Clover." While his words were gentle she could feel the unease from him. Was it the death, the situation, or fear for the lost cat? "Green," she replied dryly, nudging her head toward the bird on the fence, "and this is Flamey." Fluffing his feathers her Talonflame gave his own silent acknowledgements, his focus gratefully on watching these unknown Pokemon.

"You have my word Clover will not bother you." The male followed up, his priorities clear. Clutching her fingers around her Pokeball Green did not turn her head as she spoke. "See to it." She said firmly but without judgement. A normal person would not believe such a thing, but she had seen it before and did not wish to cause more grief to this group. With a flick of her wrist she called to another of her Pokemon, and in a flash Blasty appeared before her. "M'lady," he spoke with his usual greeting, caution already reflecting in his eyes as took in all the Pokemon around him. "We need your strength," she whispered gently, her eyes downcast and arcing in a path between the body and grave.

"Ah," her Pokemon breathed, and while the caution did not dissipate from his gaze he required no further explanation. Under the assumption his trainer would not lead him astray the Blastoise did not hesitate as he scooped his arms beneath the frozen blood. Whether it was rigor mortis setting in or the body freezing over, it had gained a stiffness that was disconcerting at the least, but her stalwart Pokemon did not cringe away as he pulled the beast from the snow. Never a Pokemon of many words silence followed the starter as he gracefully placed the fallen within the makeshift grave, and whether he was needed or not he assisted in shuffling the dirt back into the grave.

'Thank you Blasty." With another flick of her Pokeball she recalled her partner, his job both complete and his disdain for the frozen weather acknowledged as he returned to the safety of his ball. Throughout the process Green had kept her distance, both as a safety precaution and to offer these Pokemon space from the stranger.

The human had agreed to help and Jack was grateful. 'Thank you Blasty." Ark's body was in the grave and with that, Drake would proceed to bury him. Jack lowers his head and silently tells Ark goodbye. Now to ask who this stranger is. She looked like she was from Kanto and like the rest of them, fighting to survive this horrible nightmare. A pikachu without a trainer now is basically a wild pokemon since more than likely his pokeball was destroyed. Regardless, he was still willing to keep going and saving his home once that comes to pass.

Finn looked silently before looking back out towards the streets. Nothing was coming at all. It was just to cold for them to find their scent. "Nothing. They would have found us by now. Something's up. Guess I better tell Jack." With that, Finn walked away from his post and went to the others once again seeing that Talonflame. How was he so intimidated by such an avian like that? They're both fire types but he was still intimidated. Finally he said something about it. "I feel so intimidated by that Talonflame. I couldn't even say a word to that girl." That was far from the truth, Talonflames are scary but he never had ran into an undead one.

Jack sighs knowing Finn came back but if he came back that meant no undead around. "Thank you Green. We wasn't expecting this to happen in the first thing but guess things couldn't be seen so simply as this. Anyways, I'm Jack and you already met Finn." The Pikachu took off his goggles and cleaned the lens on the right side. It had dirt from falling. "Say, by chance, are you from Kanto?"

Ark's body was placed into the makeshift grave. Drake couldn't hold back his tears as he watched Ark's body lie there motionless. Who placed it was none other than a blastoise and he didn't recognize the stranger until the flash of a pokemon getting recalled back into their ball. The Charmeleon looked seeing another human. Wait, where's Rae? Did she go chasing after Ark's killer? He prayed for her safety. Drake never seen this human before. The way she's dressed though could only mean she's from another region but did Jack say Kanto? That's interested him a bit more that it would make him ask more about Kanto. However the feeling of mourning had quickly flushed back in. Finally he broke. The Charmeleon cried as he looked right back at Ark's cold lifeless body. Eventually he calmed down enough to start burying him in the dirt before it got frozen solid.

Maka looked at the human and wondered where she came from? The Talonflame though was something he's scene several times. Not this one but the bird itself since talonflames are no stranger to his kind. His eyes turned back to Green. The Mightyena then introduced himself to her. "My name is Maka, an honor to meet you"

Drake was placing the dirt as fast as he could before the the mound become solid but as he got Ark just covered enough to barely see his body in the dirt, the mound had became to hard to pull any more. Guess the snow would have to cover it for now. He then turned his attention to the human. "Thank you, I'm Drake and well, as odd as it sounds, this is where I live. We was about to go for a supply run and we could use some help if your able to." The Charmeleon said as he was still sobbing a bit. Hopefully the day would go by peacefully for them. No more death, no more suffering. Just a day where they could just relax.

OoC)) Feel free to give Drake a confused look Green if she is trying to figure out why she heard him without the communicator.

Clover 103 || Kolven 83


"Green, and this is Flamey." The human introduced herself, the words short but not harsh. With a nod Kolven called to Clover once more, making sure he had her attention as the pair moved to give the girl some space. Calling upon her Pokemon the Meowth was surprised to see another Kanto native. Clover turned to attention, her eye wide and staring at the Pokemon that suddenly appeared, but thankfully she made no noise or other signs of disturbance. "Recognize him?" Kolven purred though he expected no answer. As a few moments Clover's good eye fell to a normal range, and with a small huff she lost interest in staring. And, with that, the Pokemon set to work doing what they could not.

It was... strange. There was no better way to put it. Something about having a stranger tend to their dead due to their inability (to keep it ceremonious) seemed so wrong and barbaric, yet Kolven never thought to stop the act. They needed her help, and for the human to so willingly offer it to them in their moment of need, despite knowing nothing about the group, spoke greatly of her character. This is a caring soul. Trusting Clover with an unknown entity so soon was a bit of a stretch, but the tom cat was confident the human would not go back on her word unprovoked. Her Pokemon seemed so gentle as well, respecting Ark's body though he never knew the Pokemon, and was almost tender in all his movements.

As the Blastoise pushed most of the dirt back into the hole and backed away Kolven took his moment to approach. With a last look at the strands of black and blue fur he gave a farewell to the heavens and pushed in his own pawfuls of dirt. Stay safe, friend. His eyes burned, a stinging reminder of the tears he wished not to shed as she walked away from the grave for the first and final time. With that, there was no more they could do for him. Safe from undead, from scavengers, and the horrors of rebirth, the big cat was now out of their paws. With their last kindness complete they were free to venture out once more, though Kolven had to admit scavenging was the last thing on this mind. Sending Green on her way after such a ride of an introduction seemed more wrong than requesting her help, and Drake must have agreed as he invited her join them. "Thank you, I'm Drake and well, as odd as it sounds, this is where I live. We was about to go for a supply run and we could use some help if your able to."

Jack was quick to follow suit, though his train of thought was markably different. "Say, by chance, are you from Kanto?" With a small cock of his head Kolven wondered where he was going with such a question. Just curious? Such a question served little interest these days, his conversation with Drake was testament of that, but perhaps he was only trying to break the ice.

With her partner safely recalled and the task complete Green immediately felt unease. She had nothing to offer, no excuse or reason to be here, and knew to be on her way before being told. Hell, the Braxian seemed to share her feelings, grumbling and shuffling in a concerning, unhinged manor. Flamey flapped, and landed neat on her shoulders, ready for a quick get away, but before she could slip out the Pokemon continued to seek her attention. "Say, by chance, are you from Kanto?"

Had she not just showed a Kanto starter it would have been an odd question, though she could not understand why it would be asked. "At one point in time." She commented dryly, knowing just how meaningless such details were these days. Every place she visited was in the same state, her such bringing her regions and regions from home to no avail.. But with a sharp inhale Green pushed those thoughts away; they were neither here or now, and she would not be distracted by them in the presence of unknown Pokemon.

While these creatures had shown no signs of outburst or aggression, she knew the harsh reality of this world, and there was never as thing as being too safe. She had taken a risk already in being near these unknown Pokemon, let alone helping them, and letting her mind wander was not an option. Moving her hand to give Flamey a signal, she nearly said 'well, we'll be going then,' when another Pokemon spoke to her.

"Thank you, I'm Drake and well, as odd as it sounds, this is where I live. We were about to go for a supply run and we could use some help if your able to."

It was enough to stop Green in her tracks, hand hanging limply in the air before falling to her side. "Did you just, talk?" She asked dumbfounded, the sound of English words practically foreign to her after hearing nothing but the electrical hum of her translator for so long. Had she not seen the Charmeleon speaking the jarring language she would have believed another human had been hiding nearby, and for a second her hopes fluttered, but the shock was enough to smother them. As her wits returned to her, the moment forced to pass, she answered the question with the disbelief still clear in her voice, "I think we could spare some time, might find something useful for us as well."

With Ark's body now buried and the human had introduced herself as Green and she has agreed to help them. It was a sign that they would have a greater adventure. How will the others accept her? Jack was quick to accept her and it seems the others was as well but what about Finn? The Pikachu knew Finn was always a pain to convince but if he is serious about changing his life then he will do just that by accepting her. If not then Jack will show Finn just how serious he was about punching him. Ark, if you can hear us, guide us to our supplies and back with safety. Jack had thought silently as he looked to the sky.

Finn looked at Green and with a look that shown he didn't exactly know about her yet. The others was accepting so easily. That's what got Ark killed so easily. If Finn could tell Jack that without angering him then it would be that easy but he rather have this human prove herself. "Sorry mates but only way I'll accept her is if she proves herself as a friend. Trusting so easily got Ark killed and I won't be a drongo and do the same." Not to offend her but its how it is with him since there was to much death on this land already. "No offense miss, but I would rather make sure to trust someone through proof." If Jack didn't like it then maybe he would need to change as well.

Jack looked at Finn with anger. Did he seriously think Ark was a what? Oh, he's really gonna get it now. However they would need to foscus on the task at hand. Getting supplies from the farm before reaching Dendemille itself. "We're about to head to a farmland to get some supplies there and some seeds for berries." Putting his goggles back on, Jack nods to Green showing he trusts her since she's a brave trainer.

Drake watched as Green’s face went dumbfounded as she asked him. "Did you just, talk?” The Charmeleon nods as he walks closer to Green and the others. He was actually surprised that she would react like that. Mostly, when Rae was around, she wasn’t the type to question it, though shaking her communicator made him wonder if he said something wrong. Regardless, they had help now and that was good enough to get supplies from where they need to go. Dendemille would be the main goal to reach but beyond that was unknown to Drake. Maybe Green could tell them if Lumiouse’s condition was to dangerous to get near or if there as no way in.

Maka sniffed around the place, even sniffing Clover on a scent he picked up. It wasn’t rot he smelled or something burning. It smelled like more moisture. He knew what this means. There was more snow and likely a big whopping blizzard. ”If we are to go, we must do it now. The air grows colder and moist which means it’ll make hunting and gathering for a pack impossible. No bird would fly in it either.” From what Maka can tell, they had maybe enough time to reach the farm, get the stuff and get back before it gets to the point where they couldn’t see in front of them. If living on the mountain near the frost cavern had taught him anything, its always very dangerous to travel in a blizzard. The clock was now against them.

Drake could even tell Maka was not kidding. The mountains was barely visible and it was getting less visible more they stood there. ”He’s right, we should hurry. Hopefully we can get the stuff with no trouble. Blizzards are not fun to walk in.” The Charmeleon remembered that one year that he and his master walked from Dendemille back to the mansion in a blizzard. The cold made his tail flame get smaller but not enough to be of major concern. Hopefully they could avoid that again and he wouldn’t have a repeat of last time.
