It was a sunny day, clear skies an azure blue. Sunlight fell on a slightly shaded forest road, wagon ruts deep and fresh, showing it was well used. However a wagon was not what occupied the path now.
A small creature, smaller than a fox, but of the same form padded along the path. A hood covered the small canine's head, robe falling over it's back split near it's hind to allow sandy colored bottle brush shaped tail to stick out freely. A leather belt secured the robe, a few small bags of various materials hanging from the sides. Bracers were tied to the canine's front legs, and the backs of it's hind legs.
All in all, the canine was a strange sight. Plodding along, head perked as figures loomed ahead on the road. Quickly, it jumped into the brush along the side of the road. After a bit, two human soldiers passed by, casually chatting. They wore teal armor, shields upon their backs carrying the symbol of a boars head, tusks long and sharp. They passed by the small canine's hiding place
