IC: The little creature hadn't lasted long, being kicked from the nesting site at six months, out into the cold cruel world. Any attempts at heading back was thwarted as his family repeatedly chased him out for being different.
Instead of the drab boring colors that they were, he was plain white with red eyes.
The events from months ago led him to think that he was now nothing special at all, living in a perpetual gloom and fear of being forced out of any territoryhe ever found himself in.
He was barely scraping by on insects, and any small prey he could catch, but it didn't seem to be helping much. He still seemed too thin.
