    A white lioness cub

    *A small white lioness cub drags herself into the clearing. She has a huge gash down her flank and one of her rainbow tipped white wings is bent the wrong way. Her cyan blue eyes plead for help, before she blacks out with pain.*

    Darmora to all urgent!

    (( I must leave this roleplay for personal reasons. I will miss you all, Siro, Quinzen, Narkii, Lobo, Kiara and the dead Kovu the most. Siro, you are now alpha female. Whoever you choose as your mate will be alpha male. Goodbye everyone. May the lion gods be with you. )) Darmora streched her 30 foot wingspand and launched herself into the air, flying off for the last time. "Take care of Lobo and Kiara for me!" She called to Siro, then vanished, aloft in the blue sky. ~Darmora
