It was a sight he wasn't prepared to see, though before he'd entered the throne room he could smell death beyond the door; waiting for some unsuspecting being to walk through. That unsuspecting one was him, and his eyes had grown wide with horror at the sight. He had come seeking the king, to speak with the man of something; he couldn't even remember what exactly that was going to be. Hell, who could even remember what they were going to do when faced with a body? That last time he'd seen one... Kavrier shook his head, dispelling the image from his mind. There was only one thing that needed to be done now, he needed to find Kenjin.

He was as quick as he could, moving from the castle and into the open air. Much faster a traveling distance when in flight, walking at this point in his life was more difficult than it had been many, many years before. Where did he hear of Kenjin being? The mountains perhaps? The dragon could only hope so, as they were coming close into sight the further he traveled in the skies.

Once he was at the mountains, he lowered himself down until he could land safely upon them; eyes scanning the immediate area. "KENJIN!" he called out into the open air, waiting for a call in return, "I have something of great importance you need to know!"

Up in the great mountains laid a carved out cavern big enough to fit even the largest of dragons. In the side of the snowy hill just a few miles away from where the mountains began, rested a dragon having just finished a meal. He looked out to the opening of his cave, watching as the sunlight made the world around him nearly blinding to the eye. The small saving grace where the few clouds that foretold a different story for the future events. Little did the male know what his omen would mean.

The world was quiet. Little to disturb the beast as he enjoyed his little sunning. Slowly, but surely his eyes started to close as he began to dose. How could he not when the sun made him feel so cozy? It wasn't long before loud shrieks jolted his eyes open with alarm. Birds fluttered in various directions as the sound continued. Was that his name being called out? How the hell did anyone know where he was to begin with? With a groan, the dragon opened out his wings on either side as his body lifted up from the ground. He took himself out before folding his wings back to his side and taking some steps towards the direction the sound had been coming from. It didn't take long for him to see the form of another dragon and one he had known all too well.

"Kavrier, long time old friend," Kenjin replied as his wings opened up. With a quick movement, he took off into the air to descend down to meet the other dragon. He landed a few feet away from him, folding his wings back into place. "What brings you around these parts? You said something I need to know?" More importantly, how did he find him?

It wasn't as if he knew he was specifically in that location, but he knew it was in the mountains somewhere; gods know where to be exact, yet he had come seemingly make the best guess a dragon could. The right guess at that, as soon enough the one he'd been searching for emerged from a cave upon the mountain; above his own head it seemed. It wasn't too far off away, but he'd have to meet him down below for them to properly speak to one another. "It has been quite some time indeed, old friend, but there are plenty of other times for catching up," he spoke to the other, his feet bringing him a step or two closer to the other male, "it is dire news I must say, the image still is lingering in my own mind. I am to assume I am the first to have come upon it in the time it happened..."

Kavrier took a moment to collect his thoughts, mind racing about how he was going to exactly say what he needed to; but it would have to come out in some manner. "I was on my way to speak to the king of something, though for now the reason I can't be bothered to remember.." the dark dragon cleared his throat, "there was no answer when I knocked upon the doors of the throne room, so curiously I had entered.. and there, laying upon his own throne was the kill, dead.."

Kenjin listed quietly as he let his old friend start to speak. He wasn't his usual self. Something definitely had spooked him but enough to drive the other dragon to find him this far up north? Not many would willingly stay up here if there had the luxury of being around the castle, but then again, to each their own.

Once the news was delivered though, it all became clear. "A dead king..." Kenjin replied quietly, unsure of what to make of the news. Sure, he had heard about how terribly his kin had been ruling the kingdom, but that was his choice. The male had no intentions of interfering unless it was truly terrible. Looks like someone decided to beat him to the punch line. The kingdom now not only had a king, but had a murder on the loose. Was it one murder or multiple? Were they just in killing the monarch for all the terror he had caused or should they go free? So many questions were now left to answer, but those were the least of his problems now. There was one thing that made little sense to the male as he looked to his friend.

"If the king's dead... Then why have to come to inform me rather than another of the royals?" A few were still left, minus his line as Ren was still too young and Andromeda held no claim to the throne. "Surely, there is someone to step in during this trying time..."

The male watched close, allowing the other to take in the information given to him; though he knew well himself it was always a possibility that could happen. Even so, it was still all in a surprise, perhaps to himself more than the other before him. He was a royal, and there certainly were others who he could have gone to about this; so why Kenjin? Perhaps it was because he'd known the dragon for quite some time; he could even call him a close friend if he wanted.

Kavrier lowered his head slightly, though his eyes stayed set upon the royal's own; wings flicking slightly as a nervous habit. "To be quite honest, Kenjin, you were the first to have come to my mind with this..." he spoke up, head slowly raising once again, "out of all the royals that I could have possibly seen about it, it is you of all I trust the most. I know you probably do not care for such a trivial thing as this, he was not very well liked... this I know quite well."
