Here is my roleplay sample:
The sun edged just over the horizon, the glowing ball of warmth and light once more returning to the blue sky. Kharon stretched, wings splayed out behind him, as the swathes of light caressed his hide.
He had spent the night on the stone ledge of a canyon, the rock had held the sun’s heat from the previous day, and the canyon walls had been the home to several big horn sheep. The walls had also blocked the wind which had cropped up from the east and pushed him off his intended route a bit harder than he had wanted. But it seemed the wind had died down, the day would be warm and beautiful and he would be able to make up the lost time. All in all it was a satisfactory morning.
As he stretched in the morning sun, his claws came out gauging deeply into the rocky ledge ruining the once rain evened surface. The sharp scrap of claws on stone was music to him and he smiled to hear it. The bleat of a terrified sheep caught his attention and he found the remains of the decimated herd slowly descending to the canyon floor in an attempt to escape from him. His eyes narrowed as he watched them pick out a safe path, his brain attempting to decide if he needed to eat. Finally he shook off the dust of his landing, his stomach demanded nothing of him at the moment and he needed to be on his way.
He turned towards the cliff face and decided to climb upwards instead of flying. While he had slept warm through the night, he was not as warm as he preferred to be for flight. With a weary sigh, he began to scuttle up the canyon’s cliff face much like an overgrown lizard. When he reached the top, the sigh which escaped him was full of bliss. It had taken the sun a few hours to reach his ledge, but this plateau had been warming for a few hours now. Gusts of warm air teased his hide, beckoning him upwards. With a quiet hiss of satisfaction he opened his wings and leapt into the air, quickly catching a thermal and rising upwards into the sky. He gave a quick barrel roll, stretching in the warm air like a contented feline. After a few moments he seemed to shake himself in the air, before positioning himself towards the south and beginning to speed along his way.
