View attachment 9555 ~~It's the year 1215, humanity has been slowly degrading and new experiments have begun to arise. Scientists have recently been doing research to combine human genetics along with animals in hopes to upgrade their military. These experiments have been kept from the general population in order to keep the idea from their enemies. As months pass, their test subjects have begun to finally accept the transferred DNA and began taking on traits and characteristics of the DNA they've been infused with, just as the original plan had wanted. But after months of further testing, cruel punishments, and horrible training, the subjects have had enough. A band of 4 had devised a plan to escape the facility they've been trapped in, using their new 'gifts' to help them. They escaped...but their happiness was soon distupted. Now that the experiments have escaped, the government needs to get them back. The subjects were placed on the news everywhere, being called monsters who would kill anyone that got in their way. The reports would tell civilians to contact the police or other government facilities if they should ever find or see one of the four that escaped. So now the hybrids have to run for their lives, or risk being captured. ~~ Ferith's dark eyes studied her surroundings, the darkness engulfing their make-shift shelter in the forest. She shivered slightly, the cool night air brushing her dark skin. It was her turn to stand guard and it was quite late in the night, but she could never be too sure. Humans could be anywhere, and she was not about to take any chances letting them get to her or the ones she was protecting. Her long fox ears shifted to the sounds of the night, keeping close track to where they came from and if there were any significant changes. One of the good things about being one of them was that they could blend in with the wild animals for they weren't afraid of them like they were of humans. Ferith guessed that it was because they could sense that they weren't fully human. Her long silver hair swayed in the wind, the woman taking in a deep breathe, enjoying the peace while it lasted and she knew it wouldn't last long. They were on the run, which meant they could never truly find peace, not until this was all over, and she didn't know if it was ever going to end. Her dark eyes dulled slightly as memories flooded her mind, memories of the experiments and tests they had been put through by the horrid creatures known as humans. Sure she was partially one of them, but she would much rather call herself a fox than be included in human society. Not after she found out what exactly they are capable of doing to each other. A noise caught her attention, her ears perking up towards the sounds as her eyes brightened, using the gift she had gained to see in the depths of the darkness. After a few minutes of watching, she calmed herself. Everything was fine for now. She looked over to the other 3, watching them rest for a while before looking to the youngest. She felt bad for Noel, being so young and having these experiments done to her. Noel was even younger than herself when they first started, Ferith had been 17 when they started their very first experiments which had caused scars to overcome her body which she hides from others. She looked back out into the wilderness, waiting for the sun to come back up so they could keep moving. If only they could get far enough away from the society that was looking for them.
