Ardyn Cadeyrn Aodhán Phoenix Adravendi

With the pack informed and changes instated, the young King set out long before the sun rose a few days post-meeting. A soft dusting of snow sprinkled down from a heavy sky as he pressed north, long tail hair floating in a fiery black banner on the early winter breeze.

It wouldn’t stick, he knew that, but he made note of the weather, just in case it did change abruptly. Eventually the ground pitched upward and he started climbing, higher and higher, until the summit of Waterfall Peak opened ahead oh him and he padded to the riverside, drinking his fill before turning his eyes to gaze out over the land far below.

He sat and watched the world for a good long time, letting his lungs regain their even steady rhythm as he pondered over the season and what it might bring Valhalla. He just hoped that for once they’d have a soft winter.

Walk ---- "Speak" ---- "Labhair an Sean-Teanga." ---- "Hear" ---- Think

Ardyn's family (Red, Aurielle, Siblings, Valhalla) are allowed to crash threads, regardless of private tags.

Ardyn at first glance is as black as can be imagined with a raven sheen.

Closer inspection proves that he shimmers in fire tones in every hair on his hide right down to his lashes.

More obviously, he glows like a bed of coals and flames with every movement and brush of fur. His tail is usually wagging, so blazes like a torch.

His adult teeth are in and his saber canines have grown to their full length (see profile). His mane and tail hair have grown to full length, as well as being lightweight and easily buffeted by breezes.

A look at his front paws will give the impression of hands, with his dew claw dropped low and lengthened into a functioning thumb, and his toes elongated into fingers. He has retractable, solid black cat-like claws on every paw.

Ardyn has developed a glowing mast of intricate markings in fire and ice colors over his face, symmetrical over the last seasons of Year 17 (see profile for details). During hunts or raids/sieges, he will smudge them out with black soot to cover the glow, otherwise, they are bright enough to note at first direct glance at his face. Not all his artwork currently portrays the mask markings.

He is also often bedecked in beads, small bells, feathers in blues, ribbons and braids thanks to the Ooze Event of Halloween 2021, and the Coathanger item that he got. The accessories generally are seen most in his mane and tail hair. He removes the brighter items and bells for hunts or battle.
