    Private A Cultural Exchange 1x1 with Drago Ryder

    @Illiad Easle (Sorry for the delay. The holdiays were a bit much this year for me.) Maia tilted her head slightly in curiosity, though she didn’t say anything else about the topic of Siren’s birth. It was odd, but also understandable that differnt cultures would practice such an event differently. It wasn’t until the topic of her old home that she was brought out of her thoughts. “They were rather nice, but I suppose you could say that I was a but curious about the world. I visit a few times due to family and friends, so it’s not like I hated it there.”

    Maia nodded in understaning, only able to imagine the daily life Siren might lead. In all honesty, she doubted that she could keep up with such a thing. When she was asked about her place of birth, however, she couldn’t help but let a light giggle escape her lips. “No, though it certainly has come to feel like home. I actually moved here from Griffonstone a few years back, though that was more out of curiosity than anything else.” She might have already asked this, but it would do well to get some additional information. “Were you born in Deltrot?” (Sorry for the delay. Just got done with exams.)

    @rolle @Skylord Nexus @silvermoon15000 @Acnologia @dragon4111 If one were to ask Draco what he had expected to see during this rather forced outing, he might have listed off a few species of grimm, the night sky, and the denizens of the villiage of a village that Ghalan had apparently grown up in. No where on that list was something that looked like it had jumped a few million years in time. Even if it wasn’t a grimm, it took all of his self control to not draw on his semblance. Still, there was some amazement mixed in with the whirlpool of emotions swirling within his mind. “Ghalan, I think there might have been something in the water, because there is no way that what I am seeing is real.” Rei was honestly having the same mental crisis, though she was more curious as to how something like... Rexy came to be so friendly with one of the members of Draco’s team. Honestly, did these people even know the meaning of a slow day.

    @Illiad Easle Maia nodded in understanding and couldn’t help but smile as well. “I know what you mean. Stage fright is the bane of any performer.” Of course, that waa assuming that her behavior stemmed from such a thing. If that were the case, it was relatively easy to mitigate with enough practice. Either way, now was not the time for such things, as the singer’s visit was of a different nature. While she was a bit caught off guard by the change in Siren’s voice, the gryphon quickly recovered. ”It’s good to meet you as well.Thankfully, the wait was more than worth it.” In all honesty, Maia would probably do anything for a friend, within reason of course. “ Either way, I figured it would be best for you to get settled first before we do anything too outlandish, Was there anything specific you wanted to do here?” Vanhoover was a rather large coty, and there was bound to be things that she missed when she tried to come up with activities for them to do. At this point, she was just winging everything, pun not intended.

    @Illiad Easle Maia gave a light nod as she noticed the attention being aimed at them. “That would be for the best.” She was honestly glad that she was able to find the pony she would be spending time with during her stay in the cultual exhange program. The gryphon then began to move towards the door, being careful to not stir the forming mob any more than it already was.

    @Illiad Easle (Sorry for the delay. Life is being a pain right now.) Maia sighed as she traversed the rather crowded train station. She had only gotten there minutes prior thanks to her alarm not working, though sleepig in had certainly helped to relieve some stress. Thankfully, it seemed that her guest had yet to arrive, so that was something to be thankful for. After a bit of looking, however, she noticed a unicorn that seemed to match the description Siren Song gave her. Slowly approaching, she figured ti would be best to at least ask. “Hello. You wouldn’t happen to be Siren Song, would you?” A gentle smile then played across her beak, ignoring the crowd around them.

    @Buck Testa I’ll try to see if I can get a friend of mine in on this, though it seems like the hurricane legion is devoid of any OCs thus far. Still, Rainbow Dash, Gilda, and every other pegesus and gryphon aside from Fluttershy are probably there there, so that’s one heck of a military.

    ”I used to go camping when I was younger, so I guess I’m sort of used to the wilderness.” It wasn’t exactly the best lie, but Rei was hoping that the others would believe it, After all, it wasn’t like the White Fang operated in any of the major cities within the world of Remnant, at least not when she was a member. “So, Ghalan, any more secrets you mind sharing with us?” Draco simply shrugged as he turned his attention towards the sky. The sun was already starting to set, but that didn’t really intimidate him. “Is it bad that I find solace within the darkness.” The dragon faunus then shook his head, clearing his thoughts. Things had gotten rather complicated recently, and he was just hoping that they would be able to relax soon.

    @Illiad Easle Maia felt a small smile spread across her beak, pleased that things were going as well as they were. “Now that I think about it, I should probably take her to some of the lesser known locations to avoid tourists. The last thing I want is for her to get mobbed.” With that thought in mind, the gryphon remembered that it had been some time since she had cleaned her home, and immediately set about to do so. Knowing her, she would probably get to the train station an hour prior to her new friend’s arrival, so that wasn’t exactly something that she needed to worry about.

    @Buck Testa Ok. It had to make a few assumptions, but Gale should be more or less done by this point. Feel free to inform me of any corrections that need to be made.

    Planning Equus

    @Buck Testa Just to ensure that I am not downplaying the difficulty in such an act, how easy would it be for someone to escape Midnight's faction? I figured that it'd be the hardest out of the three due to the overall lack of freedom, but I'm kind of torn between having Gale being born in a technologically advanced civilization and in the wild. Now that I think about it, where do the dragons live? I assume that they'd have the same territories as in canon, correct?

    Planning Equus

    Ok. This is what I have at the moment. Feel free to notify me of any changes that need to be made. Granted, most of what I have is taken directly from the source material in terms of her abilities, but you never know with these sorts of things. Also, why am I getting a very strong Man in the High Castle feel from this? Name: Gale Gender: Female Race: Dragon Age:20 National Affiliation: Undecided Personality: Observant, Intelligent, Caring, Introverted, Stubborn at times, Not shy to fighting when it's needed, Independent, Curious about the world around her Flaws and quirks: Instead of consuming gemstone like most other dragons, Gale's diet mostly consists of whatever meat that she can find. She does prefer the flavor and texture of certain fish, though. As a result of her lack of communication with any of the sentient species of Equus, she is also all but mute, communicating in animalistic noises most associated with her kind and a few others. There is also a major tell for when she is about to attack from the skies and/or with the full, explosive power of her fire. When you hear a high pitched screech that sounds like that of a banshee's wail, one would do good to hit the ground. Specialties/talents: In short, Gale is rather versatile when it comes to her abilities. Her top recorded flight speed is breaks at an even seventy meters per second in a dive, and her main use of fire takes the form of a shaped charge fueled by a combination of oxygen and acetylene. She can manipulate its strength to some degree, though both allow her to perform what some might refer to as 'boom and zoom' tactics, using her superior speed to enter and exit combat in an instant while her explosive fire deals considerable damage to whatever it hits. Even for a dragoness of her size, Gale is also capable of fighting on the ground with some considerable strength and stamina, though she won't last long if her opponent is more experienced than her. Due to the coloration of her scales, she is a naturally born master of stealth, being able to blend into the darkness of the night, among other things. Her senses of hearing and smell are also enhanced, allowing her to use a form of echolocation and track a scent from a moderate distance. Bio: Gale's story is one that could be easily summarized as her answering to the call of the wild that so many of her kind have ignored for the civilization that Midnight and their dragon lord have offered them. To be fair, though, this was not always the case. For you see, while she has no current affiliation to one of the three factions vying for control of Equus or her resources, the dragoness was not born in the untamed wilderness. No, her egg hatched when it was within the borders of Midnight's empire, specifically with a relatively well off family of dragons that had only taken a few oaths in the past in order to live a life of relative luxury. After all, her father had once served in the military while her mother was a trained medic. Thankfully, none of them pertained to what might become of their children, should they have any, or Gale's life might have been drastically different. Now, you might be thinking why someone from such a background might leave the safety of their home, and the answer is quite simple. While many had come to accept the role oaths play in the empire Midnight had set up, the fact that what was essentially a Faustian bargain even existed scared her. Sure, it wasn't exactly required unless you wanted a good life, but what if someone were to trick another into taking an oath that gave the second party the short end of the stick? After all, that was how Midnight rose to power, albeit a bit more fairer than most might have been, but it could still be done. Along with this, Gale was naturally curious about the world outside of her technologically advanced home, and would often fly as high as her wings could carry her in the darkness of night and would often admire the beauty of the natural world that laid beyond. It was during one of these flights that she had made up her mind. Gale would leave her home in order to protect her freedom after her family had been offered a marriage contract from another that was somewhat better off. Accepting the deal would have stripped her of anything that had made her who she was once it was approved, but there was no way that she could outright decline without bringing shame to her parents. In all honesty, it was the best choice that she had at the time, and while her parents might worry, they would more than likely be fine. That decision had been made when Gale was around the age of twelve, and the next eight years of her life would be the hardest. Cut off from the gemstones that the dragons of her home would eat, the dragoness adapted by hunting for fish and whatever prey was smaller than her. Whatever shelter she finds comfort in normally consists of uninhabited caves or hidden coves, though she doesn't exactly stick to one place for more than a day or two, only taking flight in the dead of night. As for what she does during the day, that is spent either practicing her control over her volatile flame, hunting, or sleeping. The only reason that she has yet to join the Everfree Republic is the mere fact that she does not want to get involved in their potential conflict with the other two factions. Physical description/image: In all honesty, Gale isn't the largest dragon in terms of size. She is around seven and a half meters in length with a wingspan of fourteen meters. Along with this, she weighs eight hundred kilograms, even if most of it is muscle.

    @Buck Testa I’ll try to get my character up by tonight. I was origionally going to have her be a traveller that was trying to just simply get by in the world, possibly joining the Everfree Republic for safety, but that comment about the dragon lord and bloodstone scepter sort of threw that plan out the window.

    After Maia looked over the letter, she immediately knew what her response would be. After all, her schedule was free as far as she was aware, so it was obvious what would be best for the both of them. That, and it would take time to prepare herself to deal with the heat of the desert. After reading what might very well be the last letter she would use at this point in time, she quickly mailed it off. Evening Siren Considering the size of the city, I am not surprised that you have visited it in the past. With that in mind, it would probably be more convenient for the both of us if you were to come here first. I’ll be sure to have a room ready for your timely arrival, and I do not believe that there is much else that you will need in order to prepare. I look forward to seeing you soon. - Maia

    Gale would probably fit in this for any of the three factions. I don’t typically go for canon characters, though.
