The Northern Water Tribe
Standing amongst the White Lotus members was a girl bathed in weapons and poisons, her hair a pale brown. Green eyes flickered to her left and right as she looked over her newfound companions warily. Her hands drop to the hollow of her throat, fumbling with a gold chain.
Koizora led her large eel hound into the city, feeling uncomfortable as she and the other members of the Order strode in. Kuro, the large, lizard-like creature, tensed up, probably from the cold, and Koizora rubbed his neck affectionately. The animal wasn't really hers, but, rather, her fiancee's.
As Kuro padded lightly onto the snow-littered ground, a faint jingling sound could be heard, from all of the extra weapons he was carrying. Koizora had tried to not pack much, but paranoia had gotten to her.
Zora felt fairly comfortable with everyone in her group, with the exception of the Firebender girl, and Zora was sure that it would take her a while to trust the other girl. But she set aside the thoughts for another time; for there was something of priority to be done.
Zora shifted her weight from foot to foot, watching a quick skirmish between a young girl and her master. The girl, barefoot but beautiful, was clearly beating the man, and Koizora quickly realized that she was probably the Avatar.
"Ha! Avatar got some moves, doesn't she?"
Zora's eyes settled on the Earthbender boy, who seemed excited for the upcoming adventures. It wasn't as though Zora wasn't excited or enthused; she was just too tired from the journey to jump up and down, cheering the Avatar on as she sparred. It wasn't that hard to tell, either. The weeks of preparations, the days of travel; all worn into her face. There was a ghostly pallor to her face, but her cheeks had flushed a faint magenta color form the cold. Zora subtly felt for the leather whip at her waist, trying to ignore the bitter chills that nipped at her bare shoulders.
Kuro whined into the nape of Zora's shoulder. He was getting really cold. As a girl from the Earth Kingdom, Zora wasn't used to the ice under her feet, and she almost pitied the Earthbender, Li. Almost.
When he took off running towards the home of the Avatar, Zora just shook her head, a bit baffled by his immaturity. She bit the bottom of her lip as she hopped onto Kuro's back, fitting perfectly against his saddle. Zora applied pressure on the sides of his body using her legs, and the creature sped up, his pace quickening. There was almost no time to waste.
Upon arriving near the home of the Avatar, Zora leaped off of the Eel Hound's back, landing evenly on her feet. She didn't have to tell Kuro to stay and wait while they were acquainted with the Avatar. Quickly but surely, Zora threw her backpack into the air, and Kuro caught it in his mouth. She exhaled deeply, and it appeared as though smoke had escaped her lips.
Zora padded up to the porch of the rather humble home, her arms crossed over her torso in an almost protective manner.
