The nathbakkæ

The nathbakkæ live in the mountains. Are traditionalists within their own people. They stay in the mountains and those that trespass might get killed. They work with syndicate, when they have to.

The nathbakkæ are warriors and only, truly, accept those that completely abandon their previous life to be turned and join, .despite race, sex, etc. There are a set of trails one must complete before being truly accepted. They are designed to push a person to their limit. The test for a human and Vampire are different. It is almost impossible for an individual to get out without experiencing the feeling of death or something very close to it. They keep to a population of a few hundred not much more they know each other well and are a close knitted family.

It was snowing pretty heavily and had been for the last few hours, despite that Ray knew exactly where to go. It took a while to get there, they reach the bottom of a mountain at this point the weather had become even harsher. They ended a little cave which was almost pitch black. One hand free and his other holding Nova's hand, he found the entrance which involved him moving a few large rocks. The opening was pretty large, could easily fit the biggest of people. None the less it lead down into further darkness, a few minutes of walking and the harsh wind and snow couldn't be heard at all just the light whistling of a draft. After the walk another stone wall blocks the path but opens shortly after Ray knocks. He gives a nod to the guard once they step in, the guard nods back and closes the door. He wears the crest of the bear on the clothes he has, mainly leathers.



Ray leads Nova down the path on the left-side, which is lit up by a large lantern made out of metal 50ft above them. None the less Ray kept walking. "Almost there." He seemed completely relaxed not overly excited but not lacking any confidence either.



They walked through the actual entrance leading into the actual temple, stone statues littered the way of each side of the wide path. "If you fall... You'll have time to regret not being cautious and possibly all your bad life choices before you hit the ground. Or so they say." Another guard let them in at this check-point. It was Brenna. "Put on guard duty again? You've been misbehaving again haven't you?~" Brenna just spat to the side and opened the door. "Get in dirt-boy. And put some muscle on your princesses' bones she looks like she'd snap in a harsh breeze." Ray just smiled back. "Hope you are enjoying the view, all by yourself." Ray headed inside before she got really upset. Then the door closes behind them. It was another few minutes of walking before they reached the training room. Olafr stood outside with somewhat of a sturn expression. The massive 8ft door of stone behind him was opened enough for a human to slip through.


(imagine those archways as doors, The hallway being wider.)

The light from the room escaped into the hallway Ray and Nova were in, there was also the sound of some chatter and also training, wood on wood, metal on mtal, grunts, male and female, etc. "You are late, boy." Ray just nodded feeling a bit guilty. "But look how wonderful my wife looks." Olafr turned to her with a polite smile. "Nice to see you. We'll have you change into something more fitting for the class. Ray can show you where to get a change of clothes and where to change." He turned back to Ray, sturn again. "You have ten minutes to be back here with our new student and no funny business in the changing rooms. You will be on watch with Brenna if you aren't!"

Since the journey took so long her excitement had certainly dulled. She mainly just wanted to see how he improved and try to be a bit social but this seemed to be more of an ordeal then she originally intended. The place was..impressive to say the least. So huge and grandiose but able to be hidden from others. Granted the rocks in front of the place were heavy enough a human may not have been able to move them even if they found the place. The rest of the walk arund the place I was fairly captivated just looking at the beauty of it. Even if it was only a one time visit I was glad I got to see this place at the very least. "I can imagine, dosent look like a pleasant drop." She mused glancing at the gigantic pits from the sides of the path. Lo and behld at the door gaurding it was her favorite vampire - Brenna. They got on soo wonderfully.. Nova didnt even grace her with a response totally ignoring her. Then they finally met up with Olafr who scolded Ray for being late and calling Nova a 'new student'. So much for only being allowed to just observe, which was what she wanted. Still, this wasn't her place, best to respect their customs and be a proper house guest so to speak. Nova tended to enjoy separating herself from others, from groups especially, hence why she never seemed driven towards joining a clan like this. As stiff and proper as she could be Nova quite enjoyed freedom that rules could infringe upon. So her own moral compass was more of her own rules and guidelines rather then others. Still this was likely a one time visit, her goal was to see how Ray had improved. "No chance on just sitting on the sidelines huh? " She lightly joked. "Alright then." She didnt fuss to having to change at least. Now Ray had to lead the way though since she had no idea where t specifically go.

"I mean yeah." He began once they'd already started walking to the changing rooms. "But... I told Olafr that You'd come to try the place out. Where would the run be in just sitting around doing nothing eh?"

"Raaaaaaayyy." She sighed fussing a little bit though she couldn't help but to crack a smile. "You could have at least told me earlier. How many times have you volunteered me for something without asking beforehand. I mean I suppose I should expect it by now still." Thankfully she seemed in a fairly good mood not to upset by it.

Once getting changed in the same room just with a dividing in the middle of the room, as most do, they had to run back before Ray got his asz handed too him. luckily they were only a minute late, but Olafr left them in none the less.

(ALSO I WAS MEANT TO ASK, CAN VAMPIRES GAIN OR LOSE MUSCLE MASS?)

(imagine but with no rain or sunlight.)

Ray and Nova both had to take places in the back of the class. The class had about sixty people, more males than females, but not by a too steep amount. They were going through movements/stances. Olafr simply walked around watching. Arms behind his back watching the class as a whole. Once he was happy he went over to help Nova. "Your spouse told me you worked in the military during the firsf world war? How did you train then?" He whispered politely not to descract anyone else. The uniforms were actually pretty modern. Just a black shirt with black jogging bottoms, the shirt had the bear clan's crest on it.

(CR has deleted this too many times!!! Post dang it!! *sighs* No I dont think they could really gain or lose muscle mass. I could see them being able to tone what muscle mass they had but thats about it. Since when they are turned their bodies stay as they are only healing like recent injuries prior to turning. Hair/nails still grow but they grow even after death.So no worries abut atrophy but only able to mildly improve 'muscle mass' so to speak. Only minimal change. but vampires are all pretty strong anyway. It makes sense the nathbakkæ are muscular though. ^^ And I did a lot of research but military training in the UK for WW1 is hard to find. T.T Made it accurate as I could but it was always vague.)

As to not get Ray in trouble she didnt dilly dally in changing trying to hurry up. She sure as hell wouldn't have wanted to be stuck outside with Brenna...The outfit was a mild surprise though since it seemed far more modern then she expected. Easy to move in which was the point, still nice though. Kind of didnt hide that she was a fairly tall woman though shorts, like hell she'd complain though. From how many were training it seemed they often did this she could guess. Once Olafr addressed her she replied back in a quiet voice as to not disrupt the others seemingly in deep concentration. She nodded before speaking softly. "Yes, I worked in the police force but I had military training as well. I mostly dealt with learning weaponry. Swords had somewhat gone out of style so to speak but I had training with a short sword that I carried while working due to my rank. Along with training with guns, bayonets, and the like. Physical training was mostly hand to hand combat with rudimentary physical exercises. Sit ups , squats, running, things such as just done to excess. " Being a vampire already the simple excersies seemed somewhat pointless t her. As lazy as she enjoyed being she could handle a schedule and routine. Still this whole only working occasionally, sleeping in, getting doted on by her husband was pretty pleasant.

(Ctrl A, Ctrl C, Open a new tab or notepad and then Ctrl V. Now ur post is saved for when it bugs out. Koolkool. u didnt need to do all the research xD)

Olafr nodded slowly. "Mhmm. I assume you do not know how to properly fight as a vampire? Well the aim of these stances are to get the mind thinking, attack, offense, defense. Todays a pretty lay-back day though so no need to stress out if picking up certain things don't come to you immediately."

(Side note. most of the people there are pretty tall, only a few small/young vampires. Most people are white, blonde, brunette, etc. Ray stands out when people actually look down and see him.)
