On the very edges of the Autumn Court where jungle gave way to the mountainous region most creatures called The Spine, a lone figure stood. Bathed in the silver moonlight cast by the twin moons that took pride of place in the velvet night sky the figure looked to be made almost entirely of shadow. A stark black outline against the snow crust rockface that seemed to glow with its own magical essence that could only truly be appreciated at night. Some might have even mistaken the figure for one of the ancient stone carvings that marked the different passage ways that would lead travellers from the Wilds to the more tame lands of the Allirian Reach. Either that or those who saw him did not really care to dwell too much on the thought of what a creature with dragon-like wings was doing staring out over the town below.

Like the stars above the houses glittered with firefly light that twinkled in and out of view as wind buffeted the flames. It was nestled in a horseshoe curve of cliffs that were sheer to climb and would eliminate most risks that might have sought to ambush the town from behind. On its other front was the wide lake which was the start of one of the rivers that would eventually flow into the web of water canals that made up the odd floating lands of Iuk-'u Delta. Outside of Laigin it was the largest city that belonged to the famous Autumn Court and dedicated almost entirely to the training of its elite warriors.

Raphael shifted his wings uneasily; not because of the chill in the air or the memories the city below stirred within his minds.

They were late.

The darkness around him slowly writhed with his growing worry, swirling about his feet and crawling over his wings like a sickly lovers caress. There was a reason the Erlking had sent the three of them to this place of Nightmares and memories and he doubted it was just to inspect how the training of the new recruits was going.

A dark, shape moved through the skies, blotting out the stars in swift bursts. As general over some of the Erlking’s most prestigious armies many knew who he was. He’d been working on a special assignment away from here but that was neither here nor there. Tonight he would see his brothers again and it had been at least a few weeks once they last spoke.

He was eager to see them even if he didnt trust why the Erlking put them together on something official.

“Raph,” his voice boomed with his wings as he landed easily next to his brother. Sid’s body looked carved from the surrounding wind and mountains. Shoulder-length hair shifted as he tucked his wings in tight. He could scent Ralph’s uneasiness.

What had the Erlking made him do since their last meeting? His jaw clenched. Muscles flexed. But an easy-going grin spread on his mouth. One that made many a high fae and lesser faeries flock to his bed.

“Where’s Lorcy-boy? Gods I’m starving. Hope he remembers it’s his turn to bring food.” Large arms crossed over his chest.

Lórcan had been rather unceremoniously dragged from his bed, from the soft sheets and warm bodies of two females whose names he didn't think he'd even asked, though he planned on getting to know them a little better for a few more hours. Instead they'd been instructed to leave and his protests were shut down, and he was given his orders for the night.

By the time he dressed and flew to the meeting spot, he found both males already waiting for him. He chucked the sack of food from above toward Sid before landing to perch on a boulder nearby. His dark feathered wings spread wide in a stretch before tucking in, feathers trailing along the ground as he moved toward them. "Evening boys." he sparked a grin, running his hands back through his dishevelled hair before reaching to grab each of them in turn to drag them in for a brotherly embrace. It'd been some time since he'd seen them both, he only wished they'd had something a little more fun planned.

His smile faded and he let out a quiet huff as he looked down over the city below..

"You're always hu--" Raphael's gruff retort was cut short by the sack nearly hitting Sid in the side of his head. The childish, simple moment cut through his agitation and the oily darkness that seemed to cling to him vanished as he laughed. Lórcan's grin was met with his own smile and his hug was just a little tighter. Whilst the interrogator was used to being alone he didn't necessarily like it. He could feel himself detach more and more from the world every time he was in those cells, it was only because of the two men in front of him that kept him from falling over the edge of sanity.

He was going to need them more today than ever.

"Did we disturb you your highness?" His raised a sleek brow and folded his arms over his chest as he pointedly didn't look at the city that sprawled beneath them.

Sidereal caught the bag of food an inch before it could hit him in the side of the face. A large grin was on his face as he sniffed at the contents inside then embraced the prince back. Each already knowing to be careful of their sensitive wings. There was a meat and cheese sandwich.

"Ah hell, the good stuff. I've been living off camp rations for weeks." He took a large bite, dark brows on tan skin raising, a smirk winding its way on his mouth as he took another sniff around Lorcy.

"Smells like we disturbed him and a few others." The smirk remained on his face but a flash of concern shone in his hazel-golden eyes. He remembered when he brother hadn't been like that. Like him. Without fully turning away from the prince, he offered Raphael some food.
