With the rippling muscles gained from almost three years of beatings and challenges, the exhausted male began to make the ascent up the firm wall of rock before him. Despite his warrior build and mindset, Takoda was weakened from the recent skirmish and tiring swim, each breath like claws raking down his chest and sides, each step like a savage attack to his legs. He remembered when he could see, although poorly; this thing before him was a cliff, built with rocks and stone. Some of it could have been a sandy colour or some could have been a blue-grey hue. The different rock types probably had different scents but his little time with sufficient vision meant that the chocolate brown wolf never had time to learn. He would have loved to have his vision back, if only to memorise how things looked, from the gentle sway of trees to the smell of different rocks.
No. I don't want to be stuck in the past. Focusing on the task at hand, Takoda felt around for pawholds before heaving himself up, bit by bit. His parents would hate him for doing such an act, he knew, but could they possibly hate him even more than they already did? Besides, it was not as if Takoda cared now that they were gone. He was moving on now, to a new life. A new life upon this new land.
On the verge of collapsing, a front paw gripped onto the top of the cliff and, with his final remaining strength, Takoda hauled himself up to the top. His body convulsed on the ground as he coughed up water, emptying his lungs of liquid after what felt like an eternity of being surrounded by water on every side. Deep breaths were taken before blind hazel eyes lifted along with a head to rest upon Takoda's paws. After a while of calming down and collecting himself, the large Mackenzie Valley male noticed a collection of scents, all smelling rather similar. It reminded him of... Of a pack. But it was not all rubbed in and overly marked like Exousía's; no, it was not intimidating to him. It reminded Takoda of... Of peace and happiness.
Obviously, he was on claimed territory and would have to leave it soon so he would have to alert the Alpha to assure them that he had no intent of harming the pack. Finally strong enough to stand, Takoda got to his feet and howled to summon a pack wolf to grant him passage through these lands so that he could catch a meal on loner lands. His song was short and brief, although it was loud and certain enough for the Alpha to hear and to know that he or she had been summoned.
Notes: I would totally have made some graphics for him but I would have messed up his markings so bad haha. Sorry for the wait! <3
