Fälondreth reached the top of the tree in after a few seconds of climbing, his bow strapped to his back, quiver rattling as it bumped his bow. The tree was the tallest in the area, about 30 feet high. He could feel the life flowing through the ancient, gnarled branches. This tree had seen much, and lived through more. He patted the old tree.
"Thanks for the lift, old one."
He perched on a branch split in the shape of a Y. He could see for miles in any direction. To the North, the Jerall Mountains separating Cyrodiil and Skyrim towered into the sky, parting clouds like grey ships in a white ocean. That was his destination. The hunting in that area was good. He could find some food for his travels, and maybe a few skins to sell for gold. Then he could buy whatever other supplies he needed. He gave a slight smile, though who would see he could not tell. No one was around.
He slid down the tree with easy, his lithe body moving from branch to branch with ease.
He alighted on the forest floor with ease. He looked to the north, where the mountains towered over the trees. He started to run towards them. It would not take him long to reach the foot of the mountains. Perhaps he would meet some fellow hunters on the way.
Night was falling though. It would soon be to dark to hunt, even for his elf eyes. He decided he would make camp when he got to the foothills of the mountains. He ran on, silence filling the night as day settled into dark.
Then, barely audible to his elf ears, he heard a howl. No wolf uttered the cry that reached him. It was deeper, full of a dark malice. He felt his skin grow colder, and a slight fear entered him. Then he shook it off. Surely the tales of werewolves in the mountains were all just stories....
Right?.....


Behind him, high in the sky, the moon glowed bright, in it's full radiance.

A nord stepped out from behind a huge tree. "Do those pointy ears deceive you now, or are you ready to believe what I've told you?" It was Mathius, Fälondreth's long time friend and one of the few nords who would even speak to him much less help him hunt. "All these years I've been telling you they exist. All these years I've been saying what's stopping them from crossing he mountains into Cyrodiil? Even traveling here from Whiterun I could swear by Akatosh I came across a werewolf kill not a day and a half old in the mountain pass. I have a feeling whatever made that noise will not be slain by a single arrow. We must be ready."

He wears the mask of the hunted
Arts of light for him have been granted
He lives in the fragments of time
waiting for his time to die

"Feral, I assume." Said a distinct Khajiit. "Greetings." He said to them, appearing out of the shadows. "And yes... werewolves exist." ((Also, where is this set? Like, what place. Elsweyr, Summerset, etc?))

(the Jerall Mountains are the border between Skyrim and Cyrodiil, so being south of them puts us in Cyrodiil)

"Welcome, friends. It is good to see you, Mathius. I still hope you were wrong about the werewolves, though I seem to be wrong.
He turned to the Khajiit.
"Greetings, sir. I don't believe we know each other." He gave a little bow. "I am Fälondreth, hunter, nomad, wanderer."

"I am Dar'Rak. Werelion, actually." He said normally. "Not all werebeasts are feral and savage. Some have control over their power."

"My name is Mathius Windrider." he said as he sharpened his short blade. "Most simply know me as Windrider. My enemies call the THE Windrider. I am in good dealings and business agreements with the trading caravans your kind have in skyrim. Do you have any kin there?" He asked.

"No, most of my family live and work in Elsweyr." Dar'Rak said, looking around.

"I see. I assume you are hunting the beast as well? I picked up its trail coming through the mountains from skyrim but did not pursue unsure what I would face."

"Mmm... I had no interest until now. Not many werewolves dare make themselves this visible..."

"True. I have hunted them in skyrim before but have never actually seen one much less found a trail to follow."

Fälondreth looked to Dar'Rak.
"I have hunted with some of your kin before, near the border of Elsweyr. They are good hunters, nearly as good as some of the masters I have hunted with in Valenwood. I would be glad to have you along, both of you, to hunt this beast. I had not planned to, but a feral werewolf running wild is not a good omen."
His brow furrowed.
"I worry though. Do not werewolves often travel in packs? Even the feral ones often travel with others. I believe a tome I once read said as much."

"No, most werewolves and other werecreatures do not travel in packs. The non-feral ones, such as myself, have been seen near non-lycanthropes."
