Bid for number 5, the Dark Dapple Grey I kept singing accidentally inlove because I was actually going to bid on 8 or 6 and just happened to start coloring this guy to see how he looked on the line and I was completely in love with him! I didn't shade him too much since he's dappled and I didn't want to lose his dapples, not to mention he is black, you can't get much darker than black lol

Personality: Alcide looks intimidating and can be if the need arises but for the most part is a kind and gentle stag. He is brave, along with his training and large statue, making him one of Glenwood's best fighters.. He take honor in competing in sparring matches to receive his doe. He can be a bit of a ladies man but is secretly searching for that special doe to be with for life.

History: Alcide was born the sixth fawn of a Silverthorne doe. Knowning her fawn and possible her own life would be in danger due to their 5 fawn limit she left the kingdom, heading toward the rich bountiful forest of Glenmore. She traveled for days and came into labor in Blackwood territory. After several hours, she gave birth to a large beautiful black stag fawn, she was weak after the birth and was bleeding out but was determined to get her fawn to the safety of the Glenwoods. She made it to the other side of the Ridgeback River when she could go no farther, it was there that she passed. Alcide curled up with the still body of his mother for 2 sunsets until he hear rusling in the leaves.

A stag from the Glenmore guard approached, he saw the deceased doe and he shook his head and began to walk away. Although Alcide was weak from not having anything to eat, the black fawn let out a bleat with everything he had left in him. The stag stopped and looked back, seeing the weak yet large black fawn. He cautiously approached as the fawn came to his long unstable legs. The guard wasn't sure of what to do with him but he knew he could not let him die. He told Alcide to follow him. Slowly, the pair made it through the Glenwoods.

The young guard soon found a doe to care for the young stag but the guard always considered Alcide his son and treated him as such. He grow up not knowing of his true mother or of his tragic birth. His father taught him how to fight and spar. He was always bigger than the other stags and when it came time for the king to make his selections for guard, Alcide was one of his top picks, too much delight of his father.

Soon after he came of age to get his first set of antlers, the young stag learned that he was very much different from his fellow herd members. One day while learning some new fighting skills, Alcide was pend down by his father. He lurched out in anger and set fire to the dead leaves around his feet. It confused him. Other fawnlings set grass from their feet and he set fire. He felt there had to be something evil in him. His father decided it was time, he explained to Alcide how he found him by the side of his dead mother. He explained that he thought his mother was a Glenmore doe and must have really been from Silverthorne. That would explain his special magic. He went on to tell him that, although he shouldn't be ashamed of what he is and there isn't anything wrong with him, he should never let the other member of the herd know what he can do.

Alcide is currently a member of the royal guard, still keeping his magic hidden from the rest of the herd. Only his father and himself, know who and what he is.
