His Name was Kon-du. He was a seventh generation Musk-Amazon. from the Musk his genes were a mix of Bull, Snake, Tiger, and Weasel.

His "Mother" had trained him in what skills she could before she died in a battle with the Imperal Chinese Army. Thanks to her, the Impire never found the Valley, but she died from her wounds.

The rest of his skills he learned from watching the Villages of both peoples, fighting warrriors from both villages, and running from them all. He was hunted by both groups, the musk for spying on the Males, the Amazons for breeding stock...

Then there were the bird people. The Phoenix. They were after his Hide for just for sport, because he was not of either of the "Human" tribes, there for he was an Outsider, and there for a target for all who could kill him.

Today he was being hunted by the Godling-Prince and his Escort of four males. They had found his Cave that morning and were chasing him all over the Mountain range. His skills were holding out well, He was down to just the Prince and one Guard.

As he was Running toward a minor cliff, he palmed two of his last Stones he used for hunting birds, he charged them with Ki...

The Prince was charging his Fist as well...

The Prince dropped into a dive, his Escort right off to his left...

Kon-du was ten strides from the edge...

The Prince pulled out of his dive and fired his blast just ahead of his prey...

Kon-du hopped, spun, and released the stones...

...the prince was struck in the chest...thrown back and his heart was damaged...his escort took the stone to the temple, dropped dead at the edge on the cliff... Kondu landed on the edge, his toes digging in, his blance pulling back from the edge...the Ki blast from the Prince hit two inches from his toes...the rock ledge crumles...Kon-du turms his fall into a dive...

The Spring of Drowned Male caught his Eye. *Weird, not Spring of Boy but Male...Wonder If I should send a sample to Japan, for Honored Sir who fell in Sring of Girl?*

The Chaos of the Valley was working yet again...
