Wings of Steel - Chapter 2: From the mistBefore the waning gibbous moon began to creep over the horizon silhouetted with coniferous trees the warm light lingered in the early morning sky creating a soft blue glow rising from the obscure forest, pushing the stars back towards the centre of the sky. As the creatures of the day went to sleep the owls awoke into the eerie darkness that surrounded them.Wings of Steel - Chapter 2: From the mist2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A serene atmosphere could be felt inside the silent hollow. Eve, partly awake, disturbed and unsettled could hear the heart beats and steady breathing of her family. She could tell each heart beat apart, Eve sighed with grief as she slowly counted the heart beats over again, she could feel the grief creep in into her hollow bones as a fresh memory that seemed distant yet it had only happened a few hours ago looped in her mind.

"Something is brewing out there, I can feel it in my gizzard," thought Ignite to himself, shifting his gaze to Jax sitting ghostlike in the darkness with all his white feathers. This oddly reminded Ignite of the two barns owls that killed Avia who were also very light in colour.
Recapping through his memory Ignite began to wonder about the origins of the owls he watched last day, remembering them both in detail he recalled them addressing each other as Commander Arxcis and Lieutenant Tytoden.

Wings of Steel - Chapter 1 - Inception of dawnIn the beginning, during a cold mid-spring in the southern-most region of the Forest Kingdom of Tyto, a full moon shone over the silent, majestic coniferous forest. The light from the full moon lit the vast canopy of fir trees creating angled pillars of light that cut through the dank fog and flooded the dense undergrowth. Various small insects could be heard buzzing in the darkness, dancing freely amongst the dew covered ferns, the edges of their hairy emerald green leaves glowing like the silver lining of a cloud.
