about us This is Komorrah, a city full of corruption, poverty, and crime. While there's good and bad in every city, this one has dogs. A lot of stray dogs.
Set in a modern-day, fictionalized version of New York City, Komorrah has much to offer our gang dogs. Strays on the street feed from human negligence and thrive on the loopholes they can fit their snouts in. It's every dog for themselves
out there, though living with and having the support of a gang is helpful.
Tensions rise, enemies are made, but perhaps alliances are arranged. Only the strong survive this harsh hand the strays have been dealt. What will be your choice in Infidelis?
featured adoptable CANAILLE • APP Canaille loves to play tricks; he’s always been a trickster at heart. Canaille has a pension for getting himself in sticky situations, though. He’s got a smart mouth and while clever, it’s not always enough to get him out of trouble. He likes to play pranks on those around him, often at their expense. He cares little for how his jokes are received, and even less for the consequences they sometimes cause.
Nestled in the heart of Komorrah itself is the city. Honking horns, a constant flow of people, and an ebbing murmur of sounds gives the city both its appeal and chaos. The city expansive and wild; it's crowded and perfect for someone who just wants to blend in. It's here, in the gullet of Kessir, where the Dodgers call their home; you'll find their dens in the Labyrinth.

Anger twitched in her veins as she came across the scent she been tracking; a dog, and the smell of food fresh on them...Within the Dodger territory. Frankly, Juno had been tired of it. Tired of the arrogance, tired of the belief that she and her gang were a bunch of pushovers. Between the Yardies and their lost dogs, it was nonstop drama and angst, one after the other. She was tired of grieving. Tired of anger. No, it was time for revenge. She prowled forward, icy blue eyes belonging to that of the devil himself as she did so; there wasn't a speck of remorse within them. It promised violence to whomever she came across - to whomever decided to make the fatal error of stealing from their lands today.
Maybe she was getting cocky in her habit of stealing from the Dodgers, but it was Reisha's way of showing them who the real gang dogs were. She wasn't a strong fighter unless she had to be. However, she found a strong suit in being sly and cunning. Reisha always got what she wanted. This time, what she wanted was a fresh meal straight from the Dodger's territory; a plump squirrel plucked right from under her rival's noses.
As the Yardie trotted back to her home turf, she caught the scent of another dog. By the stench of the city, the dog was clearly a Dodger. Reisha quickly darted into an alley with the squirrel still locked between her jaws. Her ears flicked in every direction trying to locate the source of the danger. The muscles in her body tensed as the scent grew closer. Soft, triangular ears finally picked up the sound of the other gang dog. Their low growl drifted its way into her brain clearly stating that this dog was very, very infuriated. Reisha ducked her head low and kept quiet. Maybe, just maybe, she could get out of this unscathed.
There was no mistaking it. The stench of Yardies was engraved in her nose, as much as she wanted to forget it. It angered her; it filled her with the strength of a bear. But, most importantly, it blinded her. Her desire for revenge on something tangible was immense. The tangle of alleyways were ones she knew well, but, even still, they provided thieves ample cover. Nose twitching and large ears twitching about, her teeth were clenched as the low snarl vibrated heavily in her chest.
"I know you're here," the growl tinged with violence rumbled from her throat, "I'll give you once chance to surrender, and I'll escort you to the border. Otherwise..." She let the tinge linger in the air. Usually, the 'softhearted' Dodgers didn't offer an 'otherwise'. Violence had always been their last resort. But, not today. Not any longer. Juno was tired of peace.
Reisha's eyes narrowed as the scent of the other dog grew closer. She was caught between whether she should make a run for it or stand and fight. Instead, she was frozen. Not so much in fear, but rather in being indecisive about her fight or flight instincts. The thought of the fresh blood of the squirrel drawing the stranger closer frustrated Reisha. Part of her wished she could just throw it to the side and dart off towards home. The other part of her would rather stand her ground and die making a name for herself; making a stand against the Dodgers.
The Dodger's voice echoed in the alleyways and into Reisha's ears. By the sound of it, the other dog was a female too. Her promise of letting Reisha go if she surrendered would have made the Yardie roll her eyes if she wasn't so tense. Reisha didn't believe the Dodger's words for a second. Her fluffy tail slowly rose up in an aggressive posture. She also took a few steps backward to give her more room to fight in case of a surprise attack. A growl rose up to her throat but she suppressed it, not wanting to give away her position if she hadn't already. Nervous paws shuffling backward, Reisha was unaware of any noise she was making herself. Her ears were too focused on the growling words of the other dog. The gears still turned in Reisha's mind as it tried to decide what to do. Should she surrender? 'No, I will stay and stand my ground. Even if it's the last thing I do.' She thought. Her mouth released the squirrel and it dropped to the ground before her paws. Reisha held her head and tail high as she waited for the Dodger to find her.
The lack of a response gave the mottled scout all of an answer she needed. Icy blue eyes narrowing and tongue drawing over her snout at the thought of getting to punish a trespasser fueled her forth. After checking down a few other alley ways, Juno had pinpointed exactly where the intruder should've been. But, she didn't immediately go dashing forth to meet her foe. No, she went around the long way, doing a large circle around to get to the other side of the alley way after making a lot of noise towards its entrance. She knew the area better than the other dog - and she hoped to use it to her advantage.
Hoping to get the jump on the intruder in approaching from the rear of the alley way, the moment she saw a fluffy furred, dark pelt and the fresh smell of Yardie, Juno lunged. The experienced scout hadn't let out a word as she aimed to get a surprise attack. Her fangs aimed for the back of the Yardies neck - her scruff.
Despite her hatred for them, she wasn't a Saint. She wouldn't immediately go to kill any and all trespassers. But, she would subdue and make the female regret crossing and stealing from her gang though.
There was an eerie silence as Reisha waited for her opponent to approach her. Even though she was outside with noise all around her, she could probably still hear a pin drop if one happened to fall to the ground. Her muscles were still tense. The squirrel she had dropped to her paws had formed a small puddle of dark blood on the cement surface of the ground. Reisha didn't dare move, hardly even breathing in order to try to hide from the approaching Dodger.
In the midst of her intense focus, Reisha was oblivious to the dog tracking her from behind. It took just an instant for the Yardie to be attacked by surprise. She had just barely heard the attacker before its teeth grabbed hold of her pelt. A fierce snarl escaped Reisha's throat as she twisted to get away from the sharp intrusion to her skin. Her own teeth lashed out at the assailant, trying to find purchase on the other's flesh. She opened her mouth wide to reach for one of the Dodger's legs. Reisha was too focused on the warm blood trickling from her own fur that she wasn't even sure if she had grappled a leg or not. Either way, Reisha had accepted that she couldn't escape the Dodger's jaws clamped around her scruff. She turned to her next best method of defense. Her words. "What do you want, you mutt? Don't you know that we Yardies are dangerous?"
The sensation of teeth clamping around fur and flesh gave Juno a feeling of...bliss. It disgusted her, honestly. Why did she enjoy the feeling of blood trickling onto her tongue, staining her teeth? Was it her accursed Yardie side, rearing its head, revealing in this momentary violence? The anger of such a thing only made her grip tighten, ignoring the flash of pain of jaws tearing into the muscled flesh of her foreleg. She merely bore down on the thicker furred Yardie harder, in attempt to make her topple and to pin her into submission.
The other dog's words only added fuel to the fire that raged in her mind and heart, and a surprisingly dark chuckle poured from Juno's throat at the threat. "That's fine. You can deliver the message back to your so called 'dangerous' gang and tell them there's something far more worse to fear."
Reisha let out a groan of pain as the Dodger pierced her skin even further. She would have yelped but she held it back, not wanting to give the other dog the satisfaction of hurting her. The taste of blood trickled into her own mouth signaling that she indeed had the Dodger's leg in her mouth. Her jaws clamped down tighter in both pain and the frustration of being unable to move.
Although the soft triangles of her ears were pinned flat against her head, Reisha still listened to her opponent's words with immense focus. Her goal was to find a way to twist the Dodger's words in an attempt to get what she wanted. Like she always did. Or so she thought anyway. Reisha was begging to feel her legs give out from the pressure of the other dog's weight but she held strong. "Yeah? And what would that be? What's the worst thing you can do? Go on, tell me." Her feminine, monotone voice changed into a low growl as she spoke. The Yardie wasn't necessarily threatening or intimidating, but her energy was typically very unsettling in itself. She just hoped it was enough to scare the Dodger off for good.
The Yardie's testing words nearly caused a shudder down Juno's spine. They were chilling. Nerve wracking, as though welcoming violence, and promising something worse would befall any who took her challenge. The fact that she was a Yardie, a gang full of bloodthirsty savages, made it worse. Perhaps any other Dodger would withdrawal and reconsider - what could they do? But Juno?
It made her feel even more disgust as words she never thought she uttered came from her mouth like a cold, flowing river. "I can kill you." They were said with a gentle calmness. An assured promise. She had offered to take the life of another without blinking an eye, and internally, she quivered at it. She wasn't...a killer. She wasn't like a Yardie. She wasn't like her mother.
Yet, words kept pouring from her throat, slurred only by her jaws pressing down firmly into the dog's nape. "I can kill you, slowly, little by little. An ear here, a leg there. You think, if your gang saw your remains marking our border, they'd stop trespassing? I think I want to find out." The sensation to throw up felt immense, but, she could only bear her agony in a tangible form, as she pressed further against the other female to topple her into submission.
"What do you think?"
Reisha; really enjoying this thread btw! it's fun for me to explore this side of Juno!
Reisha wasn't fierce. She wasn't strong. She wasn't menacing. It ate at her mind. On the worst days, she questioned her worth. But on the best days, she would live and die for her gang. And this was a good day.
Reisha felt her legs grow weaker and weaker with the weight of the other dog bearing down on her back. It was getting harder to stand straight. She felt her grip loosen on the Dodger's leg as a frustrated snarl settled in her chest. "Why don't you hurry up and do it then, hmm?" The denmother's usually sweet voice escaped from her mouth as a taunting hiss. Reisha felt that there was something off about the other dog as if with every drop of blood that entered her mouth, the less bloodthirsty she got. Even so, the Dodger's jaws held fast on her flesh.
"You think they'll care if I never show up again? I'm nothing but a fragile denmother to them. Killing me is useless." Although she knew she most likely wouldn't win a physical fight, she knew she was a convincing liar. Whether or not the female Dodger fell for the bait was just another variable for the equation of Reisha's life. "Or," she continued, "maybe I'm wrong and I'm actually a valuable asset to them. If you kill me, you can see how far you can run before they hunt you down and tear your throat out." Reisha, although being a member of the Yardies, was surprised by her own words. Even with the events unfolding before her, she still couldn't shake a thought from her mind. 'Is this really who I've become?'
OOC: aww that's great to hear! this is definitely a good character-building thread for Reisha too Tags: JunoSilvy
For a moment, Juno was silent, the dog's words ringing in her ears in a convincing manner. It was less of how she felt...and more of how it would effect the gang. If she did....if she did kill this dog, would her gang have to suffer? They couldn't afford to lose an able body - not when war potentially brewed on the horizon. But...revenge stirred in her blood. She wanted to do more than just 'hurt' this dog and send her on her way with some stern words. She welcomed the idea of those pathetic bags of fur and fleas trying to kill her. She hadn't killed a dog before, no.
But...for some odd reason, she wasn't against it. For some odd reason, it filled her with a sense of disgustingly intense euphoria. "Maybe that's a risk I wouldn't mind taking."
Icy blue eyes narrowed as her grip on the dog released...only to be replaced with a surprisingly strong bite that would try to sink a firm hold onto her throat.
Reisha ; glad it's the same for you too! and dw, i don't plan on trying to kill reisha or anything if the bites successful!
Time seemed to stand still as tension filled the air. Reisha was still having a hard time reading the other dog's motives. One moment, she seemed to want to kill Reisha, and the next moment she seemed disgusted with the idea. A huff of air was released from Reisha's lungs; a breath that she didn't even notice that she was holding.
Reisha felt a sudden burst of anger creep into her veins as she listened to the dog speak once again. Not but a second passed before she felt the jaws around her neck release her from their grasp. The Yardie's ears were pinned flat against her head as she swiveled around to meet her attacker's teeth with her own. It would have been a lethal strike that may have led to her death. Instead, the Dodger's teeth scraped across Reisha's own. Blood began to pool from Reisha's mouth, her tongue slashed from assault.
Backing up, head low to the ground and tail high in a threatening stance, Reisha growled towards the other dog. "Death will not take me today, mutt, nor will it ever by your teeth." Reisha continued to back away from the dog, waiting for a chance to make a run for it. "And I suggest turning around now. This may not be the last time we meet but I can assure you that this is the last time we'll both walk away." Blood dripped from Reisha's mouth as she spoke. Her teeth had been painted red. "If you follow me, I will kill you. That is a risk I wouldn't mind taking." She said, mocking the Dodger's words.
Reisha snapped her teeth at the other female before turning to run. She didn't look back to see if the other was chasing her. She only kept running and running, chanting to herself in her head. 'I'm alive. I'm alive. I'm alive.'
OOC: hehe alrighty. Juno can chase Reisha or let her go, whatever you prefer : ) Tags:JunoSilvy
In a whirl of white and pink, teeth clashed against one another in a painful clang, Juno felt her gums quickly become raw as a fang slashed through them, causing blood to idly drip from her mouth. However, it felt obsolete in the anger that bubbled within her at the yardies ignorance. Arrogant, even as they fled with their tail tucked...it was like they didn't have any dignity even when retreating. Disgust and hatred welled in her throat...and she found herself almost wishing she'd actually gone through with it. That she'd actually killed the dog.
Quickly though, she felt even more disgust, if not shock, at the thought. She was no murderer, no brute. That was not in her nature. She was no Yardie.
Perhaps, she would've felt guilt for thinking in such a manner...had it not been a literal rat of the city she'd been dealing with. Fur ruffled and breath heavy, she watched the Yardie escape, teeth snapping at thin air where the retreating dog's tail tip once was.
Taking the discarded squirrel, Juno would stalk around the area and nearby borders, if just to ensure the intruder had left completely.
Reisha ; I think we're good to end it on my post! Thank you for this thread! <3
