With great power came great responsibility, or something along those lines. Now that Towhee was feeling better—physically and mentally—she came up with a checklist of objectives she wanted to accomplish in her first few weeks as Alpha. It should surprise no one that she wanted to deep-clean the ranks. She wasn't out to oust anyone, though there were a few wolves she didn't know well or at all. This seemed rather absurd, given her new station, so Towhee took some time away from her patrols to do a little hunting. Her prey: @Allure and @Andalusia primarily, though she also wanted to catch up with @Sebastian and @Whip, who seemed a little scarce. If she couldn't locate them, she would consider them expatriated.

As she did her best to track down any or all of these four members, X winged along overhead, his shadow leading the way across the glittering snow. In the distance, Towhee saw @Orca and @Raven chasing one of the pups—no, make that @Lagan. The yearling squinted at their distant silhouettes, a small smile playing across her stoic features and the tip of her tail wiggling. She then trained her attention back upon the endeavor at hand, nose skimming along the crust of fine white powder that draped the caldera.

@Andalusia Let me know if my post is okay. Tried to keep it vague. I don't think Seb would leave Anda, so let me know if you want to PP her being with him.

Most of what happened during the fight Sebastian had mentally blocked. The flash of Andalusia jumping before him to save his life was not mentally blocked. Or how she had been bleeding on the ground. He could not remember much but his adrenaline at the time kept him on his legs. He had tried to get Andalusia to safety. He couldn't even remember if they had won the fight. Perhaps they had? He had been too focussed on Andalusia. She should have stayed with the children.

What he could feel now what only pain. He had made it back to the Caldera but he was in a bad shape. He had a huge gash on his shoulder, exposing the muscle underneath it. It was not a pretty sight. His chest missed patches of fur, showing the shallower cuts. He had several bite marks around his throat. But the worst was his lack of tail. He looked like his father. A little stump was left of the lush tail he had before. Sebastian was glad that he couldn't see himself but he could feel it when he moves. You could say he could still feel his tail. Like a ghost tail.

His shoulder gave him the most concern. It was very prone to infections and he did not have enough energy to find herbs. Maybe Andalusia still had a cache somewhere but he had been too tired to ask her. He was in too much pain when he moved to even ask her. The male made it back to the territory but there wasn't much of him left. His body still exhausted, trying to make an effort to recover if he would ever recover. He hadn't seen much of the others. Sometimes he wondered if they even knew he was here, that he returned. That Andalusia and he both had returned. Though, for now, he rather did not want to move.

Others are welcome to pop in anytime. :)

Towhee was just starting to feel frustrated—an emotion exacerbated by the thought that Phox should have been around to help her with tracking these members—when she finally struck a trail. Immediately unsettled by the underlying thread of malady in the scent, Towhee followed it until it led her to a gray figure slumped on the ground. The young Alpha dug her feet into the snow and came to a standstill several feet away, blinking in surprise at Sebastian's prostrate form.

From here, she could see the poorly-healing gash on his shoulder, as well as his stump of a tail. When she drew in breath, she could detect what she thought was the odor of infection. She didn't even bother saying hello or asking how he was doing. After her momentary assessment, Towhee lifted her muzzle into the air and howled for Raven, her voice ululating off key across the caldera.

"Sebastian," Towhee finally spoke in her clunky cadence, taking a step closer, "it's been a month since we fought." It was perhaps a useless statement, especially with her lack of tone. But the concern and surprise were written all over her face. How was it that he was still in such bad shape so long after the battle? Where had he been all this time? Why wasn't Raven already all over his case?

Talked with Jaclyn, and Seb and her fled the scene and tried to stumble back to the territory, so that might have taken a few weeks. You can assume they crossed the border a few days ago!

Sebastian raised his head when he heard someone approach. He hoped it was Elwood but it seemed it was Towhee. Sebastian realized she carried herself different, he could tell enough from that. Now he wondered how Finley and Elwood were doing. He wanted to greet her with the same respect but couldn't. He placed his head down again. There wasn't much fight left in the male. The female spoke, it had been awhile. Had it? It felt so recent

Sebastian let out a soft groan. What did she meant to say with that? That he should have healed? That he should get back to work because that is the last he felt like doing. The male tipped his head to the side so one eye could look up at the female standing before him. "Andalusia... Tried to get back here. Together. But.. I had black outs," he muttered. "Just arrived. Travel made healing go slower," he tried to explain to the female.

Towhee blinked. "The fuck?" she muttered under her breath when he reported returning just days prior. It made no sense to her, though she didn't bother pressing for details. Sebastian was a soldier who'd fought on behalf of this pack and he clearly needed medical help. Hopefully Raven would get here soon to tend to him.

In the meantime, the yearling stepped closer and inspected his wounds. "You should've called for help," she said, though she left it at that. "Is she in bad shape too? Where is she?" Towhee's orange eyes cast around for any sign of the she-wolf she hardly knew before dropping back to Sebastian to catch his reply.

Sebastian groaned. He didn't intend to take so long to travel back either but he couldn't help that he wasn't moving so quickly. He hated it, along with his tail that was chopped off. His ears flattened mostly because he was ashamed when hearing her curse. He disliked to displease a leader but it wasn't really his fault in his opinion. Sebastian rolled more onto his side in a submissive demeanor.

"Not sure if I had the strength for it. Howling at this moment doesn't seem appealing," he admitted. Sebastian nodded. "She is. She was with me. Should be with me. Might be getting herbs," he spoke, though he sounded worried and tried to scramble to his feet. He kind of wanted her to be there with him. What if she died of her injuries? He didn't want to lose her again. He didn't get far though. He couldn't even get to his feet. His shoulder hurt intensely and the pain made his energy levels be drained further.
