Kuro was a natural born glider, he could stay aloft for days. His large wings weren't designed for flapping, but for long distances of gliding. Today he was on his way to the Cornucopia, to keep order and do what wardens did. However, he would have to resist the urge to eat the humans and small dinosaurs he saw there, and was already preparing his mind to deal with this. In his training, Kuro managed to overcome his primal urge to kill small things, and learned to eat fish more often than meat. Although he could now fly in a populated area without killing everything in sight, he still had to mentally prepare himself, millions of years of instincts were hard to suppress. His friend Tom flew with him, holding on tight. Tom could stay on Kuro's back without fear of falling thanks to the type of flight Kuro preformed. Because Kuro was a slow glider, the winds were less extreme, and therefore easier for a human to hold onto. Also Kuro's size helped, 50 feet from wing tip to wing tip, made it hard to fall off. So slowly but surely, Tom and Kuro made their way to the Cornucopia.
Tom was having fun, his view was beautiful, and he loved flying with Kuro. He and Kuro went whey back, all the way before he started as a warden. Tom had been essential in breaking Kuro from his carnivorous habits, even if it took several large of fish every 5 hours to keep his friend happy. Tom passed the warden program thanks to his strong sense of right and wrong, and his jolly attitude also helped. Tom couldn't help but shout with joy, this was his first mission, and he was exited to be a part of it. Although he did realise it's urgency, and quickly suppressed his euphoria.
