Zecarayus walked in the forest with the reanimated remains of a wolf that followed him, his hood on making his face hard to see in the dark forest. He had decided that to take simon's advice and explore the new land instead of being in the guild all the time. He decided here was a nice place, since as he was told a lot of people died in these woods between a war of his guild and savage skull in the past, well nice for an necromancer. He figured the reputation of the dangerous beasts were true since he had a giant wolf lunge at him. But here...it's different. There are so many spirits that have stayed in this forest because of the death here is enormous! Not only that, but these spirits are submissive, meaning zecarayus can harness their energies much easier for his spells, which saved him by summoning the corpse of a nearby wolf and killed the attacking one in time. But it was curious to him, why were these spirits so submissive? He actually asked one, a man who died of having his limbs ripped off by a pack of wolves and laid on the ground where his bones rested. He only responded though, Lichborne. A name of someone maybe? he thought to himself, although it sounds like this lichborne could have been a necromancer due to the very word of lich being included in the name and with the spirits speaking so much about him. This was the same response he got from several other spirits he spoke to. Realizing he was only going to get the name, he decided just to keep the name in the back of his head.
Still though, these woods were excellent for zecarayus, not only could he see the particular bad spots by the larger concentrations of spirits, but also he can cast his spells easier here. I could actually come here more often and practice without hurting anyone, that would be great! he thought to himself happily. While he walked though, he realized their was a pattern in the spirits concentrations. While some paths in this forest obviously lead to dead, both figurative and literal dead ends, while other turns left to no or barely spirits haunting the grounds, leaving it to be safe to travel down. Unknowingly though, he was going deeper into the forest and by avoiding the literal "dead ends", he followed the path toward savage skull. He knew that dark guild members could be in these woods, so he wore gloves to cover his guild mark and planned to say that he was an explorer and not a guild member, although he did not how bad the relations between savage skull and fairy tail actually were, otherwise he would have never entered these woods in the first place.
