Valon's assignment for June/July! The Air Empire leader gathered up several apprentices accompanied by a couple gladiators and went out for a quick training session. Valon's obviously showing off his fighting techniques during a sparring match between him and Jace, hoping the young cats will learn something in the process.
What a lot of felines don't know is that Valon was the master of defeating opponents a lot larger than him back during his days in the Coliseum. He was trained to be a self reliant, ruthless killer and earned his owner a lot of gold by being so. He's certainly not as blood thirsty now, especially since he's Air Empire leader and all, though it's been extremely hard for him to abandon all the habits he learned by being a prized fighter.
After a long while of being kept in check, these traits are just now starting to resurface during the current rps, making several cats really suspicious of Valon and his motives.
Ugh, this was one of those pictures where the more I worked on it, the more and more I didn't like it. D| I'm not sure why! alkdjkf but Valon's assignment it done and I can move onto more commissions now. c:
