Well, their last battle had ended in another victory. Kadin was pleasantly surprised about that. The opponent in question had seemed well trained and all that, but in the end Chiara had managed to get a hit in first and it was just too devastating for the other hen to withstand. It was a good thing that that hen hadn't had fire resistance or immunity, otherwise the results likely would have been much different.
Now was a new day and they were back again for the next round of the tournament. He was feeling confident about this one, too. They'd managed to win all of their battles so far, so it probably wasn't cocky to assume they'd likely win this one, too. Kadin wasn't the only one who seemed excited, either. Chiara paced by his side, heading into the sands without and prompting at all, clearly more than ready for it all to begin. With a laugh, Kadin made up way to the stands to wait for their opponent.
Name of Owner: Jack Name of Pet: Yasmin Species and Breed of Pet: Offspring Brown Sarane Level: 36 Loyalty to Owner: 31 Stats: Stamina: 6 Strength: 5 Resistance: 4 Dexterity: 4+1 = 5 Mentality: 2 Any natural boost to stats: +1 Dexterity from bracelet Special Abilities: Forest Dweller, Glide, Danger Sense (10), Intimidation (7) Moves Taught: Pounce (5), Rend (3) Abilities Used on Command: N/A Tricks Taught: N/A Creature Carries Ribbon?

The last one was a win, but she could bet the next couple would be losses. It was hard to tell though, she figured as she walked Yasmin to the arena and then let her in before heading up the stairs to the stands. Sometimes the more trained one would lose, depending on if they missed their attack, it had been known to happen, but she doubted it would happen now. Giving a little smile, the woman waved to the opponent (was that Kadin?) and settled into her seat as Yasmin rumbled deep in her throat and glowered at the red Hen. It would seem that she wasn't the only person going for purebreds, she figured with a little smile, and she wondered if she should say something to him to tease him a little. It wouldn't do though, she figured, and she shrugged and tried to think of what they were going to do this time.
Oh! Was that Jack across the way? Kadin looked over in surprise when his opponent waved at him, not really thinking about it when he waved back. Yeah, that walk was pretty distinctive. It looked like it was Jack. Didn't she say something about having a lot of a sarane, too? Huh. Even though she'd told him that, he still hadn't quite expected to meet with her here. Stupid, it made sense.
The growls and rumbles from below in the bit broke him out of his internal musings. He looked down, watching the hens stand off, a bit amused at how grumpy they both looked at each other. He wondered how well this brown was trained when compared to Chiara. He wondered what they might have to worry about in this battle. With a shrug, he called down to Chiara,
"Roar!" The red hen sprung forward at the command, enraged that she was going to have to fight a brown HEN of all things! She'd taken on opponents MUCH more powerful than this. She opened her jaws and roared at the hen, challenging her and declaring her own superiority.
Giving a little chuckle, the woman shook her head a little and looked down at the arena as she heard Kadin shout. Well, the Red was going to be faster it looked like, even with the bangle on Yasmin's leg. Oh well, that was fine she knew, and she leaned forward on the railing. Things would be alright, they would lose and she wouldn't get the points she wanted, but... whatever. Smiling, she waved down at Yasmin as the Brown glanced up at her with a snarl when the roar sounded.
Hmmph, not special, Reds weren't special. All injections and flash, there wasn't anything that stood out about her, they had the same wings, but she was better, she was glorious, and she had given the woman the offspring she had been going for. She was sure Zsa would have been in the tournament had she been trained, but oh well, it was her, and she braced herself against the roar.
Chiara's roar eventually had to stop, leaving Kadin's ears ringing in the aftermath. It looked like he wasn't the only one partially effected by it. The brown seemed frozen in place, for the moment anyway, only able to stand there after Chiara's roar finished echoing throughout the stands. Kadin let himself smile, pleased by her showing so far. She'd managed to score the first hit, so to speak, and that set her up in a good spot for this next attack.
"Breathe fire, Chiara." He called out, directing her to end this in the next turn. He doubted that the brown was as fire resistant as his red was. He watched as Chiara raced towards the brown, taking in a deep breath, and letting out a spout of flame to cover the other hen. They may have the same size wings, they may be matched in strength alone, but there was no way Chiara was going to lose to a brown of all things.
Twirling a finger in her ear for a moment to try and get the ringing out, the woman smiled a little and shouted out to her Brown, "Rend!" They could at least try to get an attack out, and she knew the Red must be able to sense danger, so there was no reason to go all out for now was it? Jack leaned forward a little further on the railing and wondered what was going to happen in the fight. Would the Red's fire hit? She saw her starting, and she chewed her lip a little. She didn't want to win the tournament, that wasn't fair, Yasmin wasn't that well trained, but she figured it wouldn't be right to not give things a fighting chance.
As she heard the command, the Brown snarled and shot into action, tearing toward the Red with claws extended and ready to slice into her, hoping she could hit.
Chiara had been through this before with the drakes she had fought. The thought that a hen would be able to land a hit on her like this was laughable, at best, especially since she didn't seem to have a stun of her own to fall back on. She easily dodged away from the slicing claws after she was done spewing her fire, but what she hadn't expected was for her fire to miss.
Damn it all.
Somehow the brown had managed to dodge her attack, whether by a mistake on her part or luck from the brown, it didn't matter. Chiara hissed in frustration, not taking her eyes off the brown, but tempted to glare up at the human as if it were all his fault this happened.
"Try again, Chiara! Breathe fire." Kadin encouraged, watching as she darted forward again to make a second attack. This time, hopefully she wouldn't miss.

Silver: I'm so glad! I really want people to feel like they can 'do stuff' with their sentient pets, and Draconics especially! I'm excited to see what you guys come up with. :3

Morgan: I like the update overall.

Morgan: I'm legit so happy now that draconics will basically be able to communicate in draconic instead of being completely unable to communicate from birth unless classically trained or 7+ intelligence. It was so weird to try to do story breedings like that.

Jack: So for those of you not on the Discord, I would like to say I'm still around, just not as much. Had to quit my job to watch the kids, opened an Etsy shop, and I'm trying to just keep things rolling through my current bad depression.
