HKS sidestory, how Slayer met Grimm
Slayer had just been tasked a solo mission by Hunter and Killer to test her skills. They deemed her ready and found an appropriate mission to test her specific skills. She was walking through a dimly, moonlit forest, and heard the helpless whimper of a pup. She could also make out the snort of a bear. But the one thing missing was the fierce, protective mother of the pup...and its littermates. She heard a change in pitch, and it seemed the pup was growling for the very first time. She needed to find somewhere to rest soon, but the noise sounded close, and she needed to ensure her safety before sleeping.
I snuck around, blending in almost seamlessly with my surroundings. I could hear the crunch of leaves under the bear’s massive weight, and it snorted at the wolf pup. I climbed a tree quietly as I stalked the bear, in an attempt to help save the lonesome pup. My eyes widened at the massive size of this bear. And the pup, it was definitely a pup, was the size of a fully grown domesticated dog. I wasn’t going to try fight in this scenario, sizing up the beast-like bear to me. I would grab the pup and run, then try reasoning with the bear if it came time. I could make out the lifeless silhouettes of the pup’s mother and littermates. I perked up as I heard an incoming message. Someone knew I was there and could sense my abilities, or something of the sorts.
I saw a bear-sized figure resembling a canine. It stared at me, then jerked it’s head towards the pup and there was a vicious growl as the bear stumbled a little. The huge, bear-sized canine figure attacked it, and I heard the bear’s flesh rip. Knowing this would last only a short time, I sent a quick message to the pup, saying
“Hey, I’m here to save you. We’re going to get out of here, someplace safe.” And dropped out of the tree, rolling off the fall to be quieter. I grabbed the wolf with my arms, and ran. At first he was resilient, but his father must’ve said something because he jumped outta my arms and darted through the forest. We bounded through the trees, hearing the bear trampling behind us.
“Waterfall. We’ll be fine.” I said to the pup, hearing the crash of water. As we approached the edge, I jumped off the probably forty foot fall into water, where there were no rocks. The pup followed and nearly drowned, but I dragged him to shore. It was our only possible escape, and as the pup jumped, I heard the bear’s jaws snap, too close of a call.
I woke up alone, and immediately searched around for the pup. I searched frantically, but found nothing. But when I remembered Hunter training me in tracking, I found a lead. The wolf was but a pup, so he wasn’t yet wise enough to cover his tracks. Next to the shore were a set of prints that I followed silently into a meadow, and after a while lost the trail. I looked harder, and saw some trampled grass that lead to an old badger den. Above the den is where I found him, sitting vigil in mourning of his family. I kneeled down and allowed him to sniff and examine me. He seemed to approve, and sat back down, so I did the same. I could tell he was devastated by some of his body language, but couldn’t fully understand his mood because I was new in the field of animal communication, how they communicate with their body and certain signals they use to convey a variety of moods.
The two sat until sunrise, then heading back home, for Slayer. The wolf approved of the name Grimm, and seemed a mature pup for his age. It reminded Slayer of herself, growing up quickly in the mental field due to not-so-controllable aspects of her life.. When they returned, Hunter and Killer congratulated Slayer on completing her mission. As it turns out, they only claimed to have an official mission, and sent her out to find her own, knowing she would. Grimm joined the team and would soon start training in anything from hunting to communicating.
