You step through the door into a glass-encased aviary where you can hear yelps and chirps of all kinds coming from trees and vines that climb the all of the enclosure. You wait for awhile...five minutes...ten minutes...then finally you see something. A hanryo male steps out, ears pricked up and expression wary. He sniffs the air, then raises his head in a mournful howl. The howl sends chills up your spine and the overall appearance of the male is rather unsettling. His body is covered in extensive tattoos that criss-cross his body and his wing tag bears the name "Song of the Damned."
The male howls once more, then slips away from sight.
You stand in silent contemplation, the image of the male still in your mind. However, you are not alone for very long because another male hops by. The wing tag reads "Midnight Blue" and you have to agree his name fits him well.
Soon the two tire of your presence so they disappear back into the trees.
There is more movement to your left.
