~ Introduction ~ Edit
The high winds buffeted your fur, brushing back. The flowers were withered and seemingly buried under the thick layers of the white substance. You followed the lithe embodiments of the Snow Leopards up ahead. Their luxurious coats glistening in the moonlight. They came to a sudden discontinuation, the superior Leopard, a magnificent tall female, twitched her tail back. The silent and mysterious creatures moved on, trudging through the snow, though it was supposed to slow them down, it seemed as if it were an advantage. As they walked further ahead, the snow seemed to glow, glistening magnificently, bits of white crystal shards were appearing in the snow. "We're getting closer." One of them spoke, his manner seemed sinister. Though you didn't know what lay ahead, you imagined it was pure and good, like the nursery tales that the elderly have been passing down for ages about this holy place.
Too lost in thought, you didn't notice the cavern, about to loom over you, you lost sight of the felines in front of you, and suddenly you were engulfed in blackness. You reached your paw out, fear beginning to writhe within yourself, your adrenaline discontinuing abruptly. There was nothing on front of you, just darkness that seemed to go on for miles, but it was a comfortable darkness, the inky blackness was mysterious.
Suddenly you felt the cavern widen, you saw specks of shimmering light up ahead. You rushed towards it, your white thick fur brushing up against a towering rock. It seemed as if it were a dream. It was breathtaking, glorious massive crystals, shining lustrously, lighting up the cavern walls. You gasped, the brilliant shining lit up the luxurious coats of your companions, their faces were solemn, their eyes were content on a monumental, illuminate crystal. You wanted to speak, no words came out, you seemed rattle, the luminous crystal towering over you, it was truly a masterpiece. Casting it's brilliant rays of light within the cavern. You just couldn't help yourself, you had to explore this extravagant paradise. You slinked away from the others, their gaze was so fixated on the crystal they didn't even notice you. Behind a crystal, you looked around contemplating the premises.
"A passage." You breathed, your breath visible in the icy cavern. You compacted yourself, attempting to squeeze yourself in the small tunnel, their seemed to be echoing voices inside, something was calling to you. As you managed yourself into the passage, it seemed to widen as you wriggled through, it seemed as if you were underground, engulfed by dirt, instead of the chilling stone. Finally as it widened you found room to stand up, while sauntering amongst the icy sedimentary ground, it came to an abrupt stop, you plummeted down, descending into the thick layered snow, relieved that in broke your fall.
You got up. You seemed as if you couldn't breath, before you was an exquisite, azure river. Though there was no moon in the cavern, it seemed to light up. The current descended downwards, flowing rhythmically over and around rocks. Flecks of crystal shards also appeared in this river. You whipped your head around, excited, but instead of the brilliancy that you hoped for, there was a massive dull rock. Scarlet fluid was marked on it, it was a spine tingling sight. It seemed evil. You looked back at the flowing, underground, translucent river. Did it ever stop? You wondered.
Suddenly a shadow was cast on a crystal, it's shape made out a Snow leopard, tall and fair. You flinched, turning around to come face to face with one of your comrades. "I'm so sorry..." you whimpered. "It will never happen again." You bowed to the authorizing tom. He curled his black cracked lips, looking at you expressionlessly. "You better be. If this happens again, you'll be the sacrifice, you're lucky the moon chose the light side of the crystal, otherwise you would've gotten a displeasing, yet undeserving death of your own." He snarled. You winced, you heard of the rituals that your companions had preformed, many sacrifices were made in this Tribe, it was all apart of our philosophy, one day you might become one of the sacrifices yourself, it's a dangerous, beautiful, uplifting Tribe. You were lucky to be apart of the Transparency of the Prehistoric Tranquility.
~ About Us ~ Edit
Transparency of the Prehistoric Tranquility is a Tribe that consists of all Snow Leopards, we perform many special religious rituals Twilight. Which is what we believe in. We live up in the mountains, where even in the summer it's relentlessly chilly. We're majestic, mysterious, swift, and alluring. We are the Lords of the cold, we use it to our advantage. We have different ranks and we seem isolated from others until we go to war. We hope you'll join us.
~ General Information ~ Edit
Orientation- We strive to peaceful and still, though when the moon disappears it corrupts us into evil, all we want is peace, which is why do rituals to Twilight. I wouldn't call us Dark or Light, but we're not Middle either.
Themesongs- Hall Of Fame
Territory- Will be discussed
~ Beliefs And Rituals ~ Edit
I put this at the top for a reason, our beliefs and rituals is about the most important thing about us, we believe that living is a short paradise where we make our own choices, free decisions, and it's only a short period of time before we live our eternity in Twilight. We do many rituals and here is the list of them.
Ethereal Endure- Every full moon we travel through the Snowy Pass, to the Illuminate Cavern. We circle around the Holy Crystal. We bow, and we wait. Similar to the Moonstone, there is a crack in the roof of the cavern. The moon will shine directly above, casting shadows on the crystal. If the moon shines on the right of the Crystal, it will cast glorious rays of light, that will signify that all is well, and we continue how we do the Tribe. But if the moon shines on the left of the Crystal, it means we'll have to do anEnsanguined Eundure.
Ensanguined Endure. If the moon shines on the left side of the Crystal, during the Ethereal Endure, it will cast a grave shadow. This means we will choose a sacrifice, and a tribute to kill that sacrifice. If the sacrifice attempts to fight back, it won't go to Twilight. The death must be torturous, and the victim's blood must be stained on the dullest rock in the Illuminate Cavern. We must hope that this pleases the Gods of Twilight.
The 5 Dreaded Plagues. If the Ensanguined Endure happens two times in a row, 5 plagues will happen. ( Credit to the makers of the 5th wave for this idea. )
1. A horrific blizzard, cascading over the mountains, it will be strong enough to blow old Trainees away, and no thick pelt can keep it out.
2. Abnormally scarce hunting, you'll only be able to find one piece of prey a day if lucky.
3. The dens will crumble, and the glorious ice that we make our home in will begin to melt.
4. An outbreak of Blackcough will spread.
5. All this will happen, with an additional torturous death and the cubs will suffer before their mothers eyes, the ice will completely melt and the Illuminate Cavern will begin to crumble.
There is one way to stop the 5 Dreaded Plagues before they happen. You'll have to sacrifice one of the Shamans in a Cleansing Decease.
Cleansing Decease. This is how you want to die, to honor your ancestors in Twilight, when you're starting to die you will be taken to the Illuminate Cavern. Your body will be agonizingly dismembered, breaking your shoulder frame, ect, to honor your ancestors and the hardship they went through. After that you'll be placed in the Crystalline River with crystal shards in your fur, you'll be swiftly taken down the current, it is said that that is the way to travel to Twilight, and that your ancestors collect you after your journey.
~ Ranks ~ Edit
Shamans- Shamans are the highest respected and most supreme in the Tribe. They are born to this position and do their best in keeping the gods of Twilight pleased. They also lead their Tribe into battle when necessary, and work as Healers as well. ( Closed )
Commandants- Commandants are the second in charge of the Tribe. They assure everyone is doing the right thing, and they are very hostile towards outsiders. They must be advanced fighters and always know what's right. ( 1/3 )
Stargazers- The Stargazers choose the life of peace over war, they ARE allowed to make omens, such as plagues happening, or sacrifices. They are the closest to Twilight and visit the Illuminate Cave at Half-moon. ( Closed )
Elites- We are still a Tribe, not a cult. Our Elites are our higher Combatants, they don't have much more respect than Combatants, but they are usually stronger. ( Open )
Combatants- These are the Fighters, Protectors, and Hunters of the Pride. They are respected by the young and will do their best to assure protection and freedom for us. ( Open )
