Ashtver awoke to the sun streaming into his eyes, the rock beneath his back somewhat comfortable. He slowly and lazily sat himself up and stretched, yawning his drowsiness away. He kept himself propped up with his hands and looked out into the sky above the tree he took his nap under. Jeez, another day? How long has it been since I left Meggan's house? A day? Three? A whole week?. Ashtver just couldn't keep up with dates now, as he adjusted to the mountains just outside the main city in the Kou Empire. He fished through the pack at his left and whipped out a small scroll before unrolling it, displaying a map. His next plan was to make his way somewhat far away from his old home and towards Magnostadt. He could probably find some people to tease, stalls to rob, other things you would find a delinquent like himself doing. He packed the map back up and stood, his cloak flapping a little. He dusted himself off and strode over towards a medium-sized gap between two sides of a mountain and felt for his wire. In a few seconds, he felt his index finger tugged on the steel thread and he pulled it harder, causing the wire to spring together, possibly binding a limb if someone had have been there. He attached the the wire to the spool to his right and reeled it in, leaving a small amount for him to grab. He made his way through the gap and out into the open - well, as open as you can get in a mountainous region.
He continued to walk on, until he heard a rustling in a nearby tree. He started and reached for his wires as he turned to face what he felt was danger. All it was was a bird, medium in stature, covered in thin feathers. At this moment, Ashtver's stomach began to growl.
"Right... I haven't eaten since yesterday afternoon..." he told himself bitterly. He silently reeled out one wire, then slinging it out, dart-like, at the bird.

The aftermath was smoke rising into the air and the smell of cooking meat.

Ashtver licked the cooked bird grease off of his fingers as he proceeded to walk between the mountains. He had never come out here with Meggan, come to think of it. They'd sat at the hut many mornings and afternoons, watching the sunlight over the mountains as the sun rose in one direction and fell in the other. Now he was under that orange sky in the mountains. It was definitely prettier there than from afar. Magnostadt wouldn't have these kinds of sights, Ashtver was sure of that.

The sky was finally azure now, barely any clouds in sight. Not unusual for Kou. What WAS unusal, though, was the absurd amount of people travelling to Kou. It wasn't usual that you see more than twenty people on the tracks at a time, but now there were ten small groups of people, almost five abreast in each. It was unusual, but something that Ashtver didn't pay much attention to. It's probably just a whole new trading thing or something like that, he told himself, oblivious to the enormous event that was unfolding under his nose.

The sun had began to beat down on him, and he took his pitch black coat off and shoved it in his back, revealing equally black clothing underneath, no clothing on his somewhat muscled arms, one of which was holding a red book, Ashtver's blue eyes scanning through it.

"This book's about as interesting as my life right now," he complained, still reading the book.

"Oh, damn..." Ashtver cursed as he watched his red book fall into a small crevasse. As he was reading and walking, he ended up bumping into a thin tree, startling him and causing him to drop the book. Come on, it was just getting interesting! he complained. He really didn't have much else to do, so he chucked his cloak back on and stepped into the crevasse, looking for the best way down. Really; the only way was to jump.

And jump he did. He brought his neckerchief up to his mouth and bent forwards. His feet swiftly left the rocky platform and he plummeted through the air, his black coat flapping vigorously in the updraft. The fall wasn't so large he'd break his legs, but it was definitely going to sting for the rest of the day...

If a furry body didn't collide with him, knocking him out of the air and across the rough, rocky floor. He winced in pain as he felt a set of sharp teeth pierce his left arm, letting blood flow out. He kicked out and knocked the furry body off of him and picked himself up, cradling his bloody arm, his neckerchief covering his gritted teeth. This day is not in my favour, he continued to complain. He could see his book over behind the wolf, as the attacker turned out to be.

He pressed his lips together and formed a pained grin,
"That's my book you're guarding there, buddy," he taunted the wolf. It was obviously a male, somewhat less dangerous than a mother wolf. The beast howled, its black lips pressed together as if whistling. Yeah, that's right, come at me! Ashtver taunted in his mind. But to his surprise it wasn't just the now enraged daddy wolf that was going to come at him - it was his pups too. Ashtver's eyes went wide.

Two of the wolf pups dashed at him. He didn't really want to attack the little ones, so instead swiftly jumped out the way onto a boulder - where another pup bit his hand. He yelped and pulled back, flipping away from the group.

"Damn, you guys are rough," he complimented, although he knew that they couldn't understand him. He reeled out both wires into his hands and prepared for battle, "Well? Come and get some!"
