Well they hadn't found the bear in the cave but that didn't mean it wasn't still around somewhere in the rest of the area. That meant the rest of the territory would need to be searched, especially so they could make sure and survivors that were found, wouldn't be in danger from it..or healers either. She was willing to go by herself but the fact that she would eventually be leaving here had been bothering her more and more. She knew how to manage and deal with things but if she wasn't going to be around forever then someone who would be staying around needed to know as well. She needed to try and teach as much as she could to those who would need to know how to manage, how to cope, how to survive. Her target for these lessons? The one Puffin had made a Ranger. Hudson. That would be the one she was going to drag around from dawn to dusk..even though it wasn't anywhere near dawn right now. Still she was going to get Hudson used to working long hours, working all day long and then working all night, however long it took to get the job done. She would teach Hudson to eat, drink, and sleep on the move and even then only when it was absolutely necessary.

She was going to push Hudson to her breaking point and then she was going to push her even further. She was going to push the dog as hard as she knew it sometimes took to just simply survive. When she was done Hudson would be the best defense Ayris could have, except herself, which should ensure the dog pack would last for a good long time. She wound the rest of her way to where Hudson was at, laying down and resting after the search for the bear. It wasn't surprising given the energy and enthusiasm the dog had had earlier before the search had begun but she was about to learn that there was no laying down on the job, at least not like this, and the job was still not done.

"Lets go Hudson, you're a Ranger now. The entire safety of this pack is depending on you and what you know to avoid disaster or to know how to deal with a disaster if one comes regardless. I can teach you things that will help but as I will be leaving here and returning to Nardir I don't have an endless amount of time to teach you so we need to start now". While she was supposed to be a guest here her tone was firm. She was not making this a request to the newly appointed Ranger but a command. Hudson would either do as she was told and get up willingly or diplomacy be darned she would drag Hudson up and out to work in whatever way it took to get the job done. She was not about to take no for an answer when so many lives hung in the balance and Hudson would find that out the hard way if need be.

Rest.

After the few days the small party spent roaming through the mountains and endless miles of rugged terrain it was certainly the best thing the lot of them could do for the time being. Yet, in this present moment sleep was not something that she would be rewarded with. Not with idea of the imminent dangers lurking about them in the very depths of the cave. She knew all too well that Puffin had seen something during their travels along with her and perhaps a select few; however, the idea of it having been so close was unsettling. While they may have been five strong: a bear was not wise to mess with. Especially when the lot of them needed to recuperate and their wounds of the days passing.

The wolfdog broke away from the small party to find a spot alone against the far cave wall to settle down and rest, stomping down the ground some before laying down in a ball. She inhaled a deep breath of the cool air before exhaling out her nose, tail wrapping tightly around her burly frame. She pressed her nose into her tail before long and her ears flickered atop of her head; however, her golden gaze was trained down toward the far end of the cave alert and waiting just in case. Well, that was until approaching steps started over to where she rest did her gaze shift to meet one of the wolves among the lot of them. Hudson lifted her head after a few moments to look at the brown wolf raising a brow in silent question.

"Lets go Hudson, you're a Ranger now. The entire safety of this pack is depending on you and what you know to avoid disaster or to know how to deal with a disaster if one comes regardless. I can teach you things that will help but as I will be leaving here and returning to Nardir I don't have an endless amount of time to teach you so we need to start now"

The firm, definitive tone certainly did not come across unnoticed and she would be a full to try and argue. Despite how exhausted Hudson felt from their travel she instead willed herself to push herself up off the ground. She exhaled a deep sigh after a few moments before looking back towards the others, "If it means protecting them teach me everything you know." She said before long and meeting Ayliyra's gaze. She stretched out after a few moments and then started over toward her side, "Something about this cave doesn't smell right and if you're willing to begin with training now. Then there's no time to waste." She looked toward the wolf beside her and smiled fondly and a tone of determination, "I won't let you down so how about you show me the ropes."

She had wondered if the other might try to argue with her, she wondered even more when the other rose and sighed in such a fashion. But then the other glanced in the direction of the other resting forms around them before turning back to her and stating that if it meant protecting them she wanted to learn everything she could teach. That would likely be quite a lot for the Ranger to learn given that she had been accumulating her knowledge of survival tactics since she was a small pup living under the rule of tyrannical father and had never stopped adding to that knowledge which meant she had years worth of lessons to try and teach in just a few days. It was bound to make things interesting she decided as she watched the Ranger stretch, a good practice but one that there wouldn't always be time for. She didn't say anything right then about it though and simply waited as the other finished and then came up to stand alongside her. She listened as the other then stated something about the cave not smelling right and that if she was willing to begin training now, which she thought should have been obvious seeing as how she'd woken the dog up saying as much, there was no time to waste. And when the other looked her way with a smile saying that she wouldn't let her down and to show her the ropes she nodded and began moving away from the others so as not to disturb them.

Not that she didn't think they could all do with some training but Hudson was going to be her focus. It might be considered arrogance of some sort perhaps but when Puffin had described the Ranger rank she couldn't help but think of how much that description fit what she did, ranging to and fro, the rank description reminded her..of herself. And that was the rank that Hudson now held which meant she was going to hold the First Ranger to the same high standards she held herself to so hopefully the dog was ready for some nice brutally long hours she mused as she headed out of the cave.

Once she determined they were far enough away to not disturb the others it was time for the lessons to begin. "First off you won't always have time to stretch and warm up before heading out like you did just now. Not sleeping deeply and shifting positions while you sleep can help with that,but you'll also need to work on maneuverability while you're awake. That will also help you to not pull something at an inconvenient time but if you do pull something you'll need to be able to compensate for it. You can do that by acting it out, imagine you've pulled something and need to keep weight off for a bit and then try and do different things like that, patrolling, sparring, anything you can think of that you might need to do in the course of your duties and figure out how you could do them if you were injured. Another good thing to help with that is healer training. You need to know your own limits yes, but you also need to be able gauge what anothers limits might be and you need to be able to do so as accurately as possible. If you have healer training you can combine that knowledge with your own experiences and it will give you a pretty good assessment for what you might be up against". She spoke as she walked keeping her gaze on her student more than the trail they were walking down.

It might seem reckless to not watch where she was going given the unevenness of the path and how sharply it dipped down in spots but that was yet another lesson. There were times when one could not rely on sight for navigation but would need to use scent, sound and touch instead. It was something else Hudson would have to learn and fast but she had noticed a scent herself which needed to be investigated which meant it was time for another, different sort of lesson for Hudson. She leaped forward down the trail heading for the scent moving over boulders and fallen trees, and using them as stepping stones to be able to take the trail in a straight shot rather than taking the time to carefully wind her way down. She kept an ear out for Hudson though just in case the dog had chosen to try and follow the same route. After all what she was doing wasn't easy, even for other wolves, and in fact she could name more than a handful who couldn't take a trail like this at all and even of those who could most weren't willing to. Taking a trail in this manner was more akin to what a cat would do and it was likely thanks to her growing up in the mountains and all the different kinds of terrain she'd experienced, as well as all her feline mentors, that allowed her to do this as easily as she did.

A loud thud followed by a sharp huff told her that Hudson did not find this as easy. She slowed just enough to glance back and make sure that Hudson wasn't seriously injured and once she determined that the Ranger wasn't she continued. It would be another lesson for the dog, being sore and bruised and cut up and scraped up didn't warrant medical attention. She had kept her nose alert all the way down considering what she had scented but it wasn't here and she cleared the last of the incline trail in a bound and with hardly missing a beat transitioned into a swift loping run, though still listening out for Hudson just in case, as she made her way over to the strong, smelling pine. She would wait for Hudson to catch up if need be before gesturing to the tree to see what Hudson noticed about it. Pine trees tended to smell rather strongly regardless but this one smelled even stronger for a reason..bits of the bark had been pulled away leaving gouges in the trunk.

The culprit wasn't here anymore but the marks on the trunk were a way of claiming it..which meant that might have more than just a bear to deal with..they might now have to add needing to deal with wild boar. She would wait for Hudson to make her own assessment before she said anything though, after all once she was gone Hudson would need to be able figure things out on her own.
