History: Born and raised in Italy, Rosa learned at a young age of her powers. Not only did she learn of them, but so did many others. She was greatly feared and was hunted for many years, until a knight from France declared he had slain her, showing a pelt of colored scales, the same color as hers. Truly he had found a true dragon and had slain it and she had taken it's place in it's cave for many many years. Now she has learned from the other animals she shared the cave with, that other Accursed Bloods had been discovered. Leaving the cave in the middle of the night, she has flown in her full-form to New York, where the largest number of Accursed Bloods are said to have been discovered.
Other: Her powers become useless on nights of new moons, leaving her at her most vulnerable. In her 'normal'/human form, she can be faster than normal humans and stronger, but only for short periods of time.
Birds sang loud and clear as the sun rose slowly over the hills and valleys that lay far below the entrance to the cave. The sky painted yellow and orange grew ever lighter and the bird song ever clearer and more jubilant. It was Spring, and a long awaited one at that. It had been a hard long Winter and it was time for the world to awake and renew itself. Warm rays peeked through the branches, glinting off something blue within the cave.
Feeling the warm rays of sun upon her back, Rosa stirred, lifting her head to look out towards the entrance of the cave. It was still the beginning Spring and though the snow had long melted, the nights were still nicely chilled. Standing, her scales gleaming in the fiery light of the dawn, she shook herself and stretched her wings. She moved gracefully to the entrance of the cave, allowing the light of morning to engulf her and begin to warm her.
As she stood on the ledge, a fox in it's transitional coat trotted quickly up the slope towards her, a smile upon its face. She turned her head slowly to look at it and smiled.
"Hello Derna. It is good to see you again. How was the winter hunting?" Rosa asked, the fox meeting her on the ledge.
"Sparse, but livable. As usual." Derna said, sitting and curling her tail around her. "I bring news for you. I heard it from a little friend."
Rosa chuckled, closing her eyes, a deep rumbling laugh. "And by little friend, I can assume you mean a bird you ate or intended to eat."
"I can never get one past you can I?" The fox asked, chuckling as well a high barking he he he. "She said there has been events across the sea. Many people dying of unknown causes." She said, narrowing her eyes, a sly grin across her light red face.
Rosa frowned and considered Derna's words for a moment before responding. "And this is important?"
"Oh very much so. You see, there are birds who have seen the deaths." Again the fox paused, waiting for a reaction from the great blue dragon.
Getting a little impatient, Rosa glared at her. "If you have something to say, say it. Enough with the games." She half growled, her wings twitching in agitation.
Her smirk widening at the impatient reaction from Rosa, and waited for a few more moments before continuing. "They say it was a beast. Not human, not animal." Derna half whispered to Rosa, her sharp white teeth showing in her devious grin.
At that, Rosa's ears perked forward and she straightened up. Beast. Like me. There are others....like me?! She thought. "Where?" She blirted quickly and rather loudly, startling the fox into standing.
"In a city called New York. A place of high buildings and horrid smells." She said, wrinkling her nose. "At least that's what my breakf--I mean 'friend' told me."
Stepping closer to the edge of the cave, Rosa turned back and smiled at the fox. "Thank you Derna! Thank you!" She said, stepping to the edge of the cliff and preparing to leap.
"WAIT!" Derna yelled, running right up next to the dragon. "There is more. The killings are not random."
Rosa stopped and looked at the fox, puzzled. "What do you mean?"
"They were beasts as well. Or ones who knew of beasts." This time, the she-fox was frowning in concern. "If you go, please do be careful. I don't like it."
"Thank you Derna. I will be cautious. You have been so good to me over the years and I will ask you but one more thing, please take care of my cave until I return." Though she knew her request would be difficult for just the fox to handle, Derna knew many others who would be willing to come to her aid should she need it.
"I will go to this New York and I will warn the others like me of what you have said. Thank you." And with that, she spread her wings and leaped from the ledge, the wind catching her and propelling her forwards.
I must find the others like me! I will. I have always been alone, felt alone. It's time to find out what else is out there.
