Other Notes: Millicent was orphaned when her parents from the Grey Flock were killed by the Red Flock. A couple from the Red Flock found her and brought her up as a warrior.

When she was eighteen she spoke out against the Grey Flock refusing to hurt those in the Red Flock or spy on them. She was beaten and cast out. Now she wanders alone in the forest trying to survive in the hope of reuniting the flocks.
Team: (Prophecy or Austere? Austeres must be in Gray Flock) Prophecy
Other Notes: Has been trying to bring peace between the two flocks for a few years, failing each time, he wasn't ready to give up. His parents wanted him to be brutal, but would ignore them. He would go out in search of another Griffin of the opposite flock, then he found one. He was flying about until he saw a grayish black female, name unknown. But this was a spark of hope. Perhaps he could get her on his side. Meeting her everyday at the same spot but never speaking a word. Then one day she attempted chasing him off but he did not budge...

Other Notes: I am new to BYC and the roleplays I have read before joining looked interesting, and as this is a new roleplay, I thought it might be a nice place to start since most roleplays have dozens of characters and hundreds of posts i would have to read.

Personality: flighty,friendly,skittish,adventurous,cautious,quick,not the smartest but tries to make the best decisions
Other Notes: receiving her name a week after her hatch, she was named Darkness, for how brutal she was too her siblings and other fledglings around her. She killed her siblings for the food her mother would bring them, her being the only fledgling to feed made parenting easier, and the stress of catching enough food for her mother's brood lessened as Darkness ended their life one by one. The flick saw this and found her to be a great warrior when she got older but, the plan for her becoming a warrior is still being planned. Now in her teen age, she continues to fight for food, now getting her own food and often hunting alone. Until one day she had met a Red flock member, she had heard of them but have never met one. His name was Unknown to her but, she was often thrown off track as every time she headed out he was there. When she found that their flock was the cause of the famine she, tried scaring him away...
Personality: Compared to the other Austeres, Lenore can seem rather innocent and naïve. She is a poor fighter and a little squeamish when it comes to bloodshed. However, she is under immense pressure from her parents to succeed, and, as a result of their constant pushing, is on her way to becoming a proficient warrior. She has a good head on her shoulders; she just doesn't know how to use it. She feels the need to prove herself, and will go to dangerous extremes to prove her loyalty to the Austeres.
Appearance: Her coat is all white, but has become ragged and stained from the tough conditions the griffins live in. Her eyes are dark, chocolate brown. One of her wings is twisted slightly from an accident during her childhood, making it harder for her to fly.
Other Notes: Born into one of the higher-ranking families in the Gray Flock, she was forced to participate in the Austere's training and taught their extreme philosophies at a very young age. Lenore quickly became a huge disappointment, failing at most of the battle training. She was able to impress Terner and gain some respect after saving him in one battle, but she is still considered to be one of the worst fighters.
Personality: Tough and quiet. His life as a loner shaped him into a bitter, hard-edged kind of griffin. His fights well on his own, but he has trouble working with a team. He values his alone time. He will often act rough and mean, if only to hide his own fears and doubts about himself.
Appearance: His coat is a light cream color, streaked with gold and brown. Various scars from past fights cover him. Most prominent is one going down the right side of his neck, given to him by the leader of the Red Flock. His eyes are mismatched. One is dark, sapphire blue. The other is hazel.
Other Notes: Solace's parents were part of the Red Flock, but they were killed in battle by Gray soldiers before he was even a year old. Lost in his grief and anger, he ran away from his flock. A bitter lone griffin named Dirge took him in, taught him how to survive, and left him to fend for himself when she disappeared one day. Solace eventually stumbled upon Terner and the rest of the Austere. He lied and said that his parents were of the Gray Flock, and the Austere accepted him into their ranks. He never really cared about winning the war, but he joined because Terner promised him an easier life after the war. Due to his experience in fighting, he quickly became a valued member of the Austere.
