Liberty Park
Acting as quickly as possible, John pulled his phone out, dialing 911 and talking with the dispatcher. "Yeah, we got a fire in Liberty Park, at house 125. A car on the street got into an accident and caught fire." He nodded a few times, staying on the line with the dispatcher until they could hear sirens.

Jade was understandably freaked out. They just moved in, and already there was a fire in their front yard. What a day. "Dad, I wanna move" She said. She knew they couldn't, but so far, she didn't like it there.

Liberty Park
Looking out the upstairs window from his bedroom, John let out a surprised sound. "What just happened?" He asked, running down the stairs. Jade was already outside, gawking at the accident that just occured. A large SUV was sitting upside down on their lawn, as well as half of a lamp post.
"Dad?" She asked. John just stood on the porch for a second or two before rushing to the car to make sure nobody was hurt.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Ramona sighed, dismounting after Rock. She didn't particularly want to start wanton killing, but it was her job. She was getting paid to clean out these towns as best she could, and protect the manarock. Besides, through the scope of her sniper rifle, things were much less personal. Though, she made a promise to herself. She wouldn't shoot anything that wasn't putting someone in harm's way. That should be easy to spot, right?

Liberty Park
A new family arrived in a large moving truck. "Moe's Movers" was pasted on the side of the trailer, and two men exited from the cab. They opened the back doors and started to move stuff in. A couch, desks, tables, chairs, some small statuettes of dinosaurs, and dinosaur bone replicas.

Before long, a small 4 door sedan pulled up into the driveway. After a few seconds, out stepped a middle aged man and his teenage daughter. The father, a grey furred lynx, had a backpack and laptop bag, and was dressed in a nice black collared shirt, whereas his daughter, a golden-brown furred lynx, was dressed in a tank top and shorts, carrying just a laptop bag.
"So this is the place?" She asked him, unenthused.
"Yep, it's a nice neighborhood. I'm sure you'll meet some new friends here."
"What was wrong with our old home, again?" The girl asked.
"Jade, I'm sorry, but you knew as well as I did that we would have to move sooner or later, this place is much closer to where my job put me. I'm sorry, but please, can you just try to make the best of it?"
She let out a soft sigh, "Alright, Dad." She answered. Being the daughter of an archaeologist was a tough gig, constantly moving around. She had left all her friends six hours away, across county lines.

As they headed into the house, the movers were just finishing. The adult lynx paid them as they left, and they settled into their new life. At least until his office job was done.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Turning her head to the horse next to her, Ramona looked to Sage, smiling through her opened visor. "I'm Ramona" She said, holding up two fingers with her palm facing the fox. A gesture Humans would recognize as the peace symbol, or "V for victory."

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"What did he run from?" Ramona asked from the back of the horse, "When I got back, the town was razed, and nobody was conscious."

Liberty Park
I am definitely interested, I'm just going to post my next set of characters, and I'll use them when I get them down.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Ramona looked at Sage. She hoped the fennec would join, which was expressed by her standing by Aetsia and clasping her hands together. "You could really help us out"

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"That's what I'm here for, so I'm in" Ramona said with a dutiful nod. She looked to Sage, next, to see what she had to say.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"Thanks," Ramona said as she climbed up on the horse. "It's kind of hard to run as fast as a large four legged load bearing creature" She commented, slightly peeved that they just left her there. At least she wasn't forgotten about.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"Wait! How do you expect me to follow!" Ramona cried as she tried to keep up. Unfortunately, her efforts were futile, she couldn't keep up with a horse. Dropping her arms to her sides, she lowered her head and sighed, walking forlornly in the direction the three left in.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Ramona gave a light wave, also wondering what they were going to do. They wouldn't just leave her there...
Right?

"We're going back to the village, right?" She asked.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"I don't know how it happened, but all of a sudden that traveler who was with us turned into a dragon and started burning the town!" Ramona recalled. Her memory was a bit foggy from what just happened, especially with how fast. "I had to get out of there though, we could have been toast!"

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Ramona was astonished that such a feat took place. Nonetheless, she decided to let the dragon fight this battle, the big bad bear was occupied with it, and she was heading in the same direction as the fox. "Stick with me, we'll be better off if we're together" She called to Sage who was at the moment just a few yards ahead of her. She didn't want to get lost on the unfamiliar terrain.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Ramona didn't really know a lot about these villages, but if she was being paid to protect them, they couldn't be as lowly as the bear made them seem. "If they're so filthy and insignificant, why are you harassing these people?" She asked. It was the fact that her face was hidden behind a visor that gave her confidence. She felt like she could stand up to someone twice her size in it, and technically, she pretty much just did.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Without much time, Ramona, who had already been outside at this point, shook her head and stepped back, "I should get my stuff" She said, heading back into the tavern. Before long, she returned, wearing her black armor. Her rifle was folded and attached to her back next to her sword. The bear was still there, as were two of the patrons. "Do you think he wants to attack the town? Wouldn't he have came in yet?" She asked the wolf, hoping he would give a little more time to prepare.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
"You're not going to see anything through the window. Not the way it's been pouring lately." Ramona started from the door, looking to the fennec. "Best look you're gonna get is out the door" She continued as she opened the door and began to step out.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
Hearing a faint noise, Ramona stood up, looking first to the door, then to the patrons that had congregated in the middle of the tavern, then to the others. She wore a surprised look on her face as she headed to the window to get a better look.

As soon as the banshee started her giddy tune, she looked in confusion before heading to the door, pulling her hood up.

The Tragic Tale of Tyrius
This place sure was different than back home. Ramona, a human girl, sat at a booth along the wall adjacent to the stairs. She wore a black hoodie with the insignia N7 stitched above the right breast, and a white/red/white stripe going down the right arm. The girl watched silently as the ordeal took place. She felt a little bad for the fennec girl, but couldn't bring herself to say anything to her. Instead, she looked down at the table, pretending not to notice.
