A to Z Challenge - Day 6

Fin - Centaur Prince

And adolescent Centaur, Fin is the offspring and rightful prince that Euclid and Cloe produced. He is the nephew of Balkin, Euclid's brother. Fin is going through different changes within his species, from a foul to a bucking, full-fledged Centaur. He might be slender, but he will be a mighty leader. Within the Going off Dreams realm, he was the representative for his realm for Nyx and her posse. We haven't seen the last of Fin and his Centaur family.

Going off Dreams Excerpt

"He was maybe half their size; he had dark eyes, and dark eyebrows. Light hair, a darker mane, and dark hooves. He pranced over to us, and bowed.
Zhou spoke up, “We’ve just finished eating, we’re getting tired, and we don’t know if we should rest here or if you will provide us lodging?”
The young foul nodded in response and said that they would be happy to provide us with a place to rest. So we all got to our feet, some of us stretched, and we prepared for departure.
“I’m Fin, I’m Euclid’s youngest son.” The young centaur drew his chest out with pride.
“Your father is very brave,” I told him, and he nodded.
“The elders have been in conferences since they’ve returned.” He looked serious and worried.
“Don’t worry, Fin, everything will be fine.” Aella swarm around him in the air, and touched his face. He instantly reared back, and she stopped in shock.
Fin’s voice broke as he said, “I’m sorry, you took me off guard.” He continued down the path, but he looked a little embarrassed. Aella actually for once looked a little deflated.
We came to a clearing, and before us were walls; massive walls made with beautiful solid seashells. It looked textured, like it had been built out of all the shells in the ocean, but smooth like ice. The walls were very high, and when the sun beat off of them it gave an illusion of water dancing all around the trees. The gigantic doors started opening and it was a slow process. Euclid came trotting out to meet us.
He clapped his son on the shoulders and stood before us. “Glad to see everyone is well, please come in.” They turned and made their way for the gates." Going off Dreams excerpt from Chapter 12 Bionic Brothers

Fenghuang - Fire Bird Clan

The Fenghuang are shape shifting fiery beasts of the feathery specimens. In Mythology Fenghang are birds of East Asia that reign over all other birds. The males are called Feng and the females Huag. In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blended for a single entity, hence Fenghuang. Within this clan is Zhou (phoenix), Plamen (dragon), Nina (orange crane), and Vesta (peacock). They are warrior that not only shape shift, but have other attributes as well. You definitely want them on your side.
