Mossy Moors
Click image to view full. A marshland, the Moors are a large and spacious collection of swamps. Small land banks sit on the surface of the water, just strong enough to hold the weight of one or two wolves per bank at a time. The land is mostly sparse of flora, the treeline only growing thick as it gets closer to the Taiga. No one knows what creatures lurk beneath the surface of the Moors, although sea-life such as catfish and frogs can be found here.

It must have been weeks since they broke away from the fragments of their Kingdom still clinging pathetically together. It was the first time Mercury had ever really been on his own as he led his Knight on a steadfast quest to locate the fairest territory to settle their Kingdom again. After all, his siblings had done the same before him and, noticing the trend, the Prince vowed that he would not be outdone and set out to find the most scenic of habitats to appease the grieving Queen. Those first few days were simple enough; he was healthy and self sufficient, he could hunt, even if the most he could catch (with or without his Knight's help) was a rabbit. He was determined. But he couldn't chase the bite of loneliness that set in, even with his Knight's companionship.

Mercury was a social beast, and without the constant feeling of community sheltering him from the doldrums of isolation, he'd begin to dilapidate with distaste for the realities of the world. Companionship distracted him from all the worries that tugged at his mind. The unblinking eye of his many royal peers gave him an excuse to play a front. With no one around but Sao, who already knew his flawed, fragile core intimately, Mercury's facade crumbled as he lost the reason to hide himself and let himself grow tender. He became restless. Annoyed. And worst of all-needy.

He hated placing so much dependence on Sao, but it sustained him all the same.

The tarnished Prince rarely left his Knight's side, exceeding his pace by a couple steps to shed the illusion that he was still leading, even though at this point Mercury was more inclined to trust his Knight's every suggestion over his own instinct. The search was waning into a hopeless wander. He began to doubt if it was even worth it having picked his way through the mountains, following his siblings' scents with the hope that something wondrous would lie beyond them. What if there was nothing? What if there was only monsters? He'd come back a fool; if he came back at all. But he couldn't go back on his quest, he couldn't go back to the Kingdom until he had something to show for his journey.

Today, the autumn sun was shining bright and warm; the morning was laden with frost, but now he felt himself beginning to swelter again under his fur. His jaws cracked open as he let his tongue roll from his jaws. They moved through the trees to where no trees grew anymore, where the canopies opened up to bright blue sky; and suddenly a marsh lay before them, humming with late season frogs and beetles. Mercury stiffened next to Sao, his lips turning into a taut, grim line.

"We can't walk through this," Mercury pouted, immediately turning his shoulder to the expanse. He'd walk along the treeline if he had to, if only to avoid the muck of the swamp.
