Valon leaped from rock to rock, his claws scrapping on their hard surface, until he had managed to climb to the top of the tallest stone. He sat and took a moment to adjust the bright red scarf around his neck before he slowly lifted his head to the sky. "Nothing's changed here. Fishing Stones are still the same." the serval sighed, "I wish I could say the same for our Empire."
Valon paused, admiring the fluffiness of the clouds as they rushed by above, before he whispered to himself again, "Things have more than changed since you left, Azra. Air Empire is nothing like is was. A lot of the old members are gone now, but we've gained a lot of new gladiators and apprentices too...all of the Empires are getting back on their paws actually."
"I'm still keeping your promise. As long as we're all together under one sky, we'll keep fighting against the Bounty Hunters." Valon closed his eyes to let a brief gust of wind blow his scarf before he glanced back at the sky and smiled.
"You'd be pretty proud."
Valon spending his time at Fishing Stones during a patrol reminiscing about the past. When Valon first joined Air Empire, the first place he was asked to venture to was Fishing Stones. It'd only make sense that he'd get a little caught up with himself, especially since everything's changed so much over the past few seasons.
It's also been a pretty common theme around EBC all of a sudden to draw your character with their Empire's elements. Valon's from Air so...clouds! BD
Dapple, I swear I was going to include Avita here but she just didn't fit the way I had the composition going. I'll have to draw a cute pic of her and Valon together to make up for it, I guess! <3+14EP!
Azra was Air Empire's original leader btw!
