The Prompt: What’s your character’s preferred means of travel?
Toriah actually has a soft spot for the regal, beautiful equines that humans have conditioned for riding. She personally cannot stand having to ride a hawkstrider, even though the animals are also elegant and gorgeous. Hawkstriders, however, feel far too delicate. Being mounted up means Toriah’s traveling a long distance and, therefore, needs a hardy, sturdy creature to rely upon.
If she really had a choice, though, Toriah will never forget the exhilaration and freedom of flying on the back of a netherdrake while in Outland and would definitely prefer traveling by drake. The onyx netherdrake she befriended— and would later become her personal mount that brought low the orcs of Shadowmoon Valley— followed her back to Azeroth. He rather enjoys the wide, clear skies and new… um… cuisine choices in the abundant wildlife. Due to logistical issues, however, it’s not often that Tori gets to fly with her drake.
For starters, most folks aren’t used to seeing dragons flying about, let alone a netherdrake. It’d start a panic in a heartbeat.
