A large badger gritted is teeth as he stood staring into the eyes of a boy, the boy was thick, with muscles forming already at his young age. His chestplate was black steel, with gold around the shoulders. His greaves were black as were his bracers. His helmet, covered his cheeks and on the top was the hair of his own horse, Casma, making seem as though he had a mohawk. (Achilles in Troy is what he bascially looks like) His spear, which was called dawn, was shining brightly in the morning sun. Aias charged at the badger, leaping to one side and driving his spear down at the badgers neck, the blow was barely deflected as the badger raised his shield, the blow was powerful and almost knocked the massive badger on the ground. Aias circled him, going into another attack, the badger deflecting his blows but barely. Aias cast his spear, the badger put his sheild up, as he did Aias charged pulling a sword from his shield as holding at the badgers unprotected neck. "Got me again, young master the old badger laughed. "You are letting me, my old friend." Aias smiled. As they picked up their weapons and headed in side the fortress, they began to talk. "Tomorrow is your 16 birthday?" The badger asked. "Yes it is, I leave for He Fang castle tomorrow also." Aias replied as the enter the main hall where badgers and wolverines were dining. As the two friends looked over at the table of lords, Guan Yi could be seen talking to Ironclaw. Aias his badgerfriend went to the barracks to put their weapons away.
"I beleive the boy is the master of the Spear." Guan Yi said. "I can beleieve it, The only time he has lost in sparring was against me and my son, and my son can not longer defeat him. It is very easy to look upon him and say he is the master of the Spear. Why do you ask?" Ironclaw asked. "I think this war is coming for our lands, Tao Lu, told me that the only way I can win is with the master of the Spear by myside." Guan Yi said sipping some wine. "He is ready I believe to start his days of battle." Ironclaw as Aias walked back into the main hall holding the hand of his mother. "Well, my young friend, Today is the day where you will leave us, and go to finish your training at He Fang castle." Ironclaw said proudly, but sadly also. Aias smiled, "Guan Yi, tell me, has war come to your lands?" Aias asked curiously. "I am afraid so...." the warrior replied sadly. Aias smiled, "very well, I shall pack my horse and we will leave as soon as night falls." Aias said, goingback to his chamber.
