Default Ties of Fate [RP]

The flow of time brings with it many things. Revolution and innovation, bliss and despair, life and death. So many elements connected by a central point few care to notice in a world full of seeming inconsistencies. But all things are related, in ways most do not or will not understand.

A continent of the West makes this apparent. On this landmass, several different species, connected deeply yet separated by large bounds from each other. Few records exist of the time before Humans became dominant on this continent of the world; oral traditions aren't shared, and most have ascended to mere myth save for those written by the Humans. Under the banner of a family by the name of Harribel, whose leading man and woman were practitioners of the magic of light and darkness, an empire was forged from a settlement in what is now a grand castle. Those that did not join with them were forced into hiding or killed off entirely, and only three small groups remained neutral during this time. Over the course of ten years, what had been a land ruled by lawlessness had been subjected to a brutal takeover, creating order amongst the Human factions for the first time.

Revolutions of that magnitude happen only once in a century, but progress does not stand still for such to happen. Between the one hundred and twelve years that have passed since that time, much has changed. The Human empire has entered the age of industry, and the introduction of guns to their militia has added to their strength, being mixed with training in archery, fencing and other military strengths. The steam engine allows ships to travel against the winds, the new heavy steel of the hull prevents them from being tossed about in the terrible winds created by Cyclos, and the canons mounted on them make them formidable even to the monsters dwelling in the deep. But revolution always occurs when things seem to be going perfectly for those in charge, but terribly for those beneath them.

Angered by the poor treatment of their fellow citizens, a group of knights within the royal guard have broken away from their duties and formed an alliance of dissidents and criminals willing to overthrow the current government. Following an ill-handled epidemic determined to be caused by someone with experience in medicine, a resurgence of species previously thought extinct, and increasingly troubling rumors surrounding the royal family itself, the rebellion has come at one of the worst possible times. Unknown to the revolutionaries, the reasons for these actions is merely because the alternatives would be far, far worse; their attempts to reconcile with the races they previously pushed into hiding is met by violent riot from the people of the cities; the quarantine of a small town for an outbreak of a deadly disease with no name, offering no assistance to the infected of the town for fear of it spreading through the rest of the kingdom, and the apparent death of the king's son go unexplained to the outside world, the truth known only by a select few, forbidden to breathe a word of it.

As revolution boils, however, more distressing rumors continue circulating through the Western continent; the activities of thieves, murderers and rapists have been emboldened; the advancing technology and magic has been turned to malicious use; the world as most know it is teetering on the brink of collapse. Forgotten by most are the old gods of the world, and though most are not concerned with the lack of remembrance, several have turned their hatred against Humanity, Chaos stirring violence in all, Misery filling the hearts of the otherwise satisfied, vengeance being wrought upon those who have done nothing. However, those absorbed in their anger don't see a much larger threat brooding on the horizon; a terrible legion beyond the reach of the steam ships of the Harribel family, planning to conquer the land lying across the seas, against whom the royal army is preparing to hold off. This story is concerned less of them and more of the heroes who will be forged in this time; those who will save the world they know from certain destruction, or those who will lead it to ruin. Only time will tell what strands of fate will be intertwined, time which waits for none to respond to its call...


The world:
Please consult this map for general locales. Many more cities exist in the known world than this; feel free to place and name them as you please. Keep in mind that the world has just entered the industrial age; the most advanced weapons are canons and guns with more than one shot. The most advanced technology would be the steam ships and other steam-powered devices being built. Railways have not yet been invented, either. Magic is also powerful in this world, though most are unable to learn how to use it from lack of interest of being cut off from the knowledge to do so.

Noteworthy Races:

Humans: The dominant force, Humans are usually considered by other races to be favored by the gods. Their physical and magical capabilities can range from average to amazing, and their ingenuity allows them to work with situations most other races would have no idea how to quell. Their main strength is in their ability to make items and adapt to most any environment. They use a combination of swords, guns, and other such conventional weapons. Humans are not limited to one field of magic, and therefore have much more potential for picking up multiple disciplines.

Lycans: One of the races that was almost entirely wiped out in the Harribel's takeover of the continent, Lycans are Humanoid creatures with the ability to morph into a single animal, chosen when the being reaches a certain age. Lycans generally have a few features from the animal they transform in to, though this varies immensely between individuals. They exhibit traits similar to their animal forms, ranging from increased strength and dexterity to better sight and speed. They have formed a tentative alliance with the royal family in recent years, and were hit worst by the epidemic from two years ago. They use a variety of weapons, and have a wide range of fighting styles.

Succubi and Incubi: Two different yet similar races living on the islands beyond the mainland. Succubi are Humanoids with bat wings and other generally demonic features, varying from each person but generally consisting of a spade tail and horns in addition to their wings. Incubi generally exhibit more birdlike traits, ranging from merely having bird wings on their backs to having actual talons and tail feathers, though this too varies by individual. Both races are neutral towards the Humans, and are not a part of the Harribel's empire. Both races have a high aptitude for magic use and ranged combat, but suffer from somewhat lower endurance than Humans. They are limited to four disciplines of magic.

Elves: Rumored to have descended from the Angels themselves, Elves are generally classified as beautiful Humans with generally blond or raven hair and sharp blue or green eyes. They live in the forests, though their numbers have dwindled in the years since the Human's assertion of power. They tend to use more elegant weapons and magic than Humans, and their agility and eyesight is superior, while their physical strength is generally lower than average Humans. Elves use bows, katana and magic associated with the forest, but can learn no more than two disciplines of magic.

Fairies: Small, Human-shaped creatures with dragonfly or butterfly wings on their back. They are a peaceful race that lives only in the deepest of forests, and as such many have been disappearing from the known world. They stand, at most, five inches tall and generally emit a light that occasionally reflects strong mood shifts. As they are a peaceful race, they don't use weapons, but have a wide knowledge of the world and the creatures inhabiting it, making them good for information when one can be found. They are also very skilled at magic, being able to learn all disciplines save for Time magic.

Dwarves: Not seen since before Humans attempted to form a government, Dwarves live in an underground city named Abyss hidden in the mountains. The diminutive Humanoids are fairly distrustful of strangers, and have a strong sense of honor. The majority of their society revolves around mining, and though they have few warriors, those who have fought a Dwarf know that just one is a force to be feared. Dwarves are limited to learning Earth magic, and are physically superior to Humans in the way of physical might and endurance, well making up for their limited magic.

Gods & deities: A race of beings that existed in the world before its creation ages ago, the gods are embodiments and controllers of whatever it is they are the personification of. In their own alternate plane of existence, they are unstoppable, but upon traveling to the Human world, their powers are drastically cut, making them weak enough to be taken down by exceptionally powerful Humans and other species, though they remain unkillable. If defeated in the Human world, their bodies turn to dust and they reappear in their alternate plane. Various gods, such as Noir, the god of shadows, and Cyclos, goddess of the wind, prefer to reside in the world of Humans. Compared to all other creatures, the gods in the Human world still have an immense store of power from which to draw on, but they are forbidden from attacking mortals unless in self-defense. Usually, there is only one deity for any particular element or other thing in which they embody, but in rare occasions, there will be more than one (Example; Noir and Nox are both the god/goddess of shadows) for a particular thing. Most of the gods and goddesses are related in some way.

Misc.: Other races exist, and will be allowed within the boundaries of reason. Please give a brief explanation of the race in your SU if you make one up.


Factions:

The Royal Guard: A fighting force of Humans working for the Harribel family. They are well-equipped fighters, but it has been noticed they are stretched fairly thin after the mass desertion. They have access to most of the ships and weapons available, but most do not know how to use magic.

The Rebels: A group of former Royal Guards who learned of the hidden incidents and decided it was time for a change in management. Many criminals have allied with them, as the group was in charge of the penitentiary when they decided to desert. Their fighting force is strong enough to challenge the Royal Guard, and is widely varied.

Neutral: Those with no part in either group. They can be part of a neutral group if you so please; if you do, please give a bit of detail about the group you are making.


Magic

Elemental: Consisting of Fire, Ice, Wind, Water, Earth, and a few unclassified spells, Elemental magic is the easiest to learn and the most widely used. Each begins with one general-purpose spell which can branch out to many others the more you know about the particular discipline. Each one has their own nature much like the deity they are personified by, and as such magic is known to misfire if you fall out of favor of that god. (NOTE: Each element is a discipline in and of itself)

Light & Shadow: The two most powerful sects of magic, Light and Shadow are used for defense and offense, respectively. Alone, they are rather useless, but when combined by a tactical mind, it is by far one of the most versatile and powerful of them all. Light and Shadow magic generally consists of manifesting various things, such as swords and shields. However, they both have an attack spell that takes a random combination branch, which can be devastating to opponents. Mastering these two branches of magic takes years, but its few users have been nearly unstoppable in combat when used correctly. Unfortunately, attacks with Light and Shadow can be separated and deflected easily with the correct observations, effectively rendering it fairly useless against highly perceptive opponents.

Unsorted: There are a few instances where a magic user does not fit in with a category, or has completely unique abilities previously unheard of. Abilities not fitting in an above category should be explained.

Time: INACCESSIBLE Time magic is the manipulation of time in order to influence events. Only the Goddess of Time has access to this magic, and for good reason.


Rules

1) No godmodding
2) No bunnying
3) Romance and violence is allowed, but keep your clothes on or be introduced to Death himself.
4) Making up species and magic abilities that don't fit are perfectly acceptable, but nothing too outrageous.
5) Feel free to name and describe some cities if you like (Be sure to give us about where it is on the map)
6) You may sign up as a deity, but a warning; if I deem you are g-modding, you're getting curbstomped so bad the curb will go with you.
7) YOU MAY NOT, AND I REPEAT, MAY NOT sign up as the goddess of time.
8) Have fun... or I'll eat your left kidney >:U

Luna and Cloud
Port Belle(small port town just down the coast from Fort Ford)
Neutral


The whispers followed them as they walked, Luna was acutely aware of it--the fox ears sitting atop the lycan's head weren't just for show, the yworked quite well. No one greeted her, just whispered to those near them.

"Does that girl have...? I'm not seeing things?"

"What does one of their kind want here?"

"That wolf...it's a bit...large, isn't it?"

Luna sighed and looked down to the thunderhead gray wolf at her side, who was already looking up at her. "It appears to be the same here, Cloud." the wolf snorted, as if to say "Well, what did you expect?" in return. Luna shrugged and smiled at her companion. "I don't know what I expected, maybe a town that wouldn't whisper behind our backs like we're criminals?" The last part was spoken more loudly than the rest, making most of the whispers stop. Then there was a sound like a child crying triumphantly and the loud call of "Puppy!" as a young girl broke free of her mother's grasp and ran up to them. Luna laughed at the obvious mother's horrified expression as the girl approached her.

"May I pet your puppy?" The girl asked, stopping before Luna and looking at Cloud, the lycan laughed softly and looked to Cloud, the massive wolf's head bobbed in a nod.

"Sure, he's friendly." She told the girl who immediately let out a cheerful "Yay!" and darted forward to rub Cloud head, which was almost to the child's shouder. "He like it when you rub behind his ears." She suggested, and the girl listened, producing a rumbling sound similar to a purr. when the girl laughed and patted Cloud on the head, Luna laughed as well.

"Silly puppy." The girl comented before turning and smiling at Luna. "Thank you, miss!" She chirped before darting back into the crowd.

"So...she got to pet him, anyone else want to pet the puppy?" Luna asked with a sly grin, bringing more children from the crowd--it seemed maybe not all the town would hate them, anyway, as it usually was.

Midnight
En route to the nearest city
Neutral


Her shoulder throbbed again, in unison with her head, and Midnight gritted her teeth. "Will you please shut it, Sigfreid so everyone else in there will stop yelling? I already have an arrow in my shoulder that hurts enough--I really don't need a headache to boot!" She snapped irritably, hoping that it would finally bring silence to her head. Most of the time, she idn't mind the eight other voice, but this was bordering on ridiculous. Ever since she'd managed to get herself shot by a stupid archer in the last town she'd stopped in, the most obnoxious of her spirits, Sigfreid, he called himself, had been complaining, sparking an arguement with the seven other spirits in her head, and they'd been at it the whole way there.

It worked to an extent, most of the yelling died down as she approached a man going the opposite direction, and Midnight pulled her newly acquired cloak around her to hide what she hadn't snapped off of the arrow. "Excuse me, sir? Would you know where I could find a place to buy medical supplies?" She asked, the man stopped and frowned for a moment. "I'm travelling on my own, and I'm prone to hurting myself on accident." she added, the man nodded and ointed just off to the side of the city.

"S'posed to be some miracle worker in a tent just outside the city, prob'ly you can buy stuff there." The man grunted, and smiled and nodded, pulling free a few coins she still had and handing them to the man before going in the direction he'd pointed. Once she was a ways away, Midnight sighed and let go of the cloak.

"Hey, someone distract me with a story? Please?" She requested, and one of the spirits, she was pretty sure it was the one who called herself Emille, started relating a fairytale about a princess until she managed to find the tent the man had spoken of. She stopped before the opening and frowned, how did she announce herself?

"Umn, excuse me, is anyone in there? I kind of need of help..." She cringed at the way she spoke, but it would get the point across...she hoped.

Nox
Church of Shadows
Neutral


Nox dashed between a pew, laughing as Hannibal tore behind her in his human form, both trying to escape the current one "it", a young-looking winged girl by the name of Sin. Tag was one of the favorite sports of the childish goddess, and it was common for her to be able to get most of her and her brother's followers living in the church to join in, as there wasn't much else to do these days. She grabbed a pillar next to the row of pews as she made it out, and swung herself into the next rows, hair flying behind her as much as the chin-lentgh mess could, and picking up the skirt of her dress, she hurled herself to the floor to avoid Sin--unsuccessfully. The gentle, cold hand pressed her back and the girl giggled as she called "You're it, Nox!"

The goddess sighed and picked herself off the floor as the other fled from her, scanning the room and trying to calm down her own giggling. "Not for long, Sin!" She called, looking at what the others(and herself up until now) seemed to forget, it was early, and light streamed through the church's windows, casting shadows on the floor. She smirked, and then she was gone for a moment before reappearing behind a pale young man with small horns poking out from under his hair and tapping him on the shoulder. "Now you're it." She declared before slipping through the shadows again, returning to where she'd ben sranding just before.

CR-12B
Medical tent outside Amberground post
Neutral


CR-12B rubbed his temples in frustration. Another day closer to getting caught, a day less to find out what he wanted to know. He wasn't really surprised; he was working on almost pure speculation on his part. He'd managed to pinpoint the quarantined town, but... no one he asked would assist him in getting there. Without guards to defend the road, it had become dangerous, and no warrior wanted to travel to a place that had been destroyed in such a manner as that particular town. He was amazed no one was even suspicious of him, but he had heard the rumors about it; 'someone had been responsible for it', and whoever the information had spread through apparently said he had gotten the death penalty and been executed. The thin doctor jumped a bit when a voice announced itself from outside the fairly spacious tent. He shouldn't have been surprised; travelers tended to stop by for either supplies or quick healing whenever they drifted by.

"Uh... Y-yes, I'm in here," He answered quickly, hoping he was successful in wiping the concern off his face before whoever it was came in. It sounded like a woman, if he had to guess... "C-come inside and I'll do my best to treat whatever wounds you have... O-or if you need medical supplies, I believe I can supply those, as well..."


Noir, god of shadows
Church of shadows
Neutral


Noir had never been one for games, either. He mused that was why he wasn't quite the best sibling for his little sister, but that was what her other friends were for. Other deities would have been enraged at children running amok in their temples, but Noir had never minded. It wasn't like anyone ever came here; users of shadow magic were almost entirely limited to the royal family, and they had their own altar devoted to shadow and light within the castle. If they ever needed to ask favors of him or his sister, it was always done there save for the rare adventurer who happened upon the dilapidated-looking church. Besides, if his sister was having fun, that was fine by him. So long as they didn't hurt themselves, he didn't have any problems.

He wasn't quite focused on them, though. Or anything, really. He was perched on one of the beams in the rafters, staring off into space. Something was off, and he knew most of what it was, but something else was wrong too. He just couldn't place it. It was troublesome. Moreso than the things mortals usually did, mind you. It was probably something bad, but maybe it was something beneficial for once. Noir shrugged it off and peered down at the group of children below playing with his sister. Tag, it sounded like. "Be careful down there..." He called down, smirking a little. Kids would be kids...

Midnight
Medical tent outside Amberground
Neutral


Midnight frowned at the voice, the guy sounded jumpy, and that wouldn't settle well with her is he pulled the arrow in her shoulder the wrong way, but it was the best Midnight had right now. She entered the tent slowly, wary of what she's find in there and praying the doctor wasn't going to stab her with a scalpel or something as soon as he got a good look at her face. What she found was a lone man among sitting among medical supplies. "Think you can help with this?" She asked, pushing the side of her cloak back to reveal the arrow sticking out of her shoulder, part of the shaft was snapped off, but only as much as she'd needed to take off to hide her injury yet enough it wouldn't leave the head tuck there by itself. "I sort of spooked the wrong guy and got shot." She glanced down as though she was embarassed and waited for whatever would come.

Nox
Church of Shadows
Neutral


Nox held up her hand and called "Time!" sharply, looking up to where her brother was sitting and sighed. "Big brother, really? You think we can hurt each other that easily?" She asked, brushing the mess of blonde hair out her face. Hannibal laughed and looked up as well.

"He's your brother, he's gonna be worried about you." He told her, Nox frowned, putting her hands on her hips.

"I'm not a little girl anymore, though." She muttered before turning to the assembled group of nonhumans standing in various spots around the room. "Okay, guys, game over for today." She called, there was a soft muttering that started up as they left off to return to their various places of origin, making sure they were all gone with the exception of Hannibal, the goddess looked back up to her brother. "Something's bugging you, isn't it?" She asked softly, Hannibal walked over to her and sat down on one of the nearby pews.

Character name Kyu Rakshi
Location Chongsu Peak, mountaintop in the Fujin Mountains
Faction Neutral

"That's not it," a frustrated Kyu shouted, "it can't be this hard." The cool air gave a reassuring lift to him. "What am I doing wrong?" Clearly, his studies of ice magic were simply compared to the actual task. In one final effort, Kyu swept his hand back and focused on that single hand. The maneuver, however, cost Kyu his balance as he tumbled face-first into the awaiting, snowed ground.

Kyu gazed up into the bleak sky. All he had wanted to do was to create a thin aura around himself with the element of ice. It was indeed possible, as he had created one once before, with the aid of the late Uesho. The officer was the master of ice and lightning element in his elven clan. "Magic isn't just a weapon, it's a way of life." he would always say. Immediately after, Uesho would lead into a lecture of how magic is tied to the body. Usage of the elements requires one to call upon the capabilities within the body itself. At about this time, Kyo would often let his mind wander, checking in periodically to keep up the facade of listening to his comrade.

While getting back up, Kyu brushed the snow off of himself and placed his feet shoulder-length apart. In front of him, he clasped his thumbs and index fingers together to create a triangle with his hands. He half closed his eyes and exhaled through his nose continually. His focus was geared for that single shape straight ahead. A cool blue fog began to form around his position and felt a slight tingling from his appendages. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a flash of movement. The transition was broken as he turned around to face the source.

Cinder and Caron
Road outside Harribel Castle
Neutral

Even though Caron had already done so about a hundred times already, he couldn't help but sneak another curious glance at their newest companion, adding the tally mark up to a hundred and one. Even though she wasn't ugly, she probably didn't warrant so many looks. After all, she was dressed rather plainly, with her black shirt, black skirt, and violet gloves. She would have blended in nicely with the crowds, although her hair might have stood out, but she had a vibe that said she did not like to be stared at, so no one really stared at her. And yet there was a mystery about her that nagged at the warrior's brain, and he couldn't figure out what.

Cinder, on the other hand, was not as obvious with his observations. He walked only a pace or two behind the woman, a little to her right. He was reading a spellbook in one hand and holding his staff in the other, and so far he had glanced up only a few times. He was not as concerned with who the girl was, he knew that she was vastly powerful in magic and seemed to not want to cause any trouble. That was fine by him. He already had a few ideas as to who she was, but they were all secret to him.

He couldn't really blame anyone if they wanted to stare. The woman shows up giving only her first name (Solaris, was it?) and saying that she just needed to get away from Harribel Castle. Of course Caron was all for it, being the kind-hearted person that he was, and Cinder didnt seem to care either way. The Magus idly turned a page in his book, his eyes skimming over the text in thought. "Solaris," he said at last, his voice soft as falling leaves. The name rolled off his tongue smoothly, and he found it rather unique, if uncommon. "I know you don't seem to have a place to go, but do have a general destination in mind? You can't wander the countryside forever."

((Gods, my brain just died reading that last bit.))

Solaris Harribel
Countryside; Castle area
Neutral


"U-uh..." Solaris stammered in her soft, kind voice. She hadn't really expected either of them to ask her for a destination. After all, she'd come to them requesting they help her travel away from the castle. She'd given them her first name and said she was a maid at the castle when she did, and the fact that she'd had to lie about it was troubling her. But if she told them she was the princess, who knew what they would do? Probably take her right back to the castle, or even ransom her back to her family... or worse things. She was thankful enough that they had allowed her to travel with them; choosing a destination wasn't something she expected to happen. "...I'm just a servant girl, sir... I-I don't know anything about traveling. I don't care where we go; the decision is up to you two, Mr. Cinder and Mr. Caron."

She hadn't spoken to them much beyond asking their names as well, and she was surprised they hadn't pressed the issue more. They had both been taking glances at her, the more muscular giving her more looks than the one in the red cloak. It made her a little nervous; she didn't consider herself attractive enough to draw that many looks from anyone, but she supposed it was better they look at her curiously moreso than them questioning her. Of course Solaris had established a backstory that would stand up to inspection from anyone who wasn't part of the castle guard or her family; She was a maid who had worked for the royal family, but she had been verbally mistreated by the guards, and after taking all she could handle decided to leave. That would stand up to most people's questions; only the guards at the castle and her own family would see through her story. "I... I heard about you two once, while I was at the castle... The Magi and the Warrior. I bet you have a lot of interesting stories to tell..."


Asagi Hokkaido
Port Belle
Neutral


Asagi's hunger for adventure in Amberground hadn't quite been stopped by not having any traveling mates. She'd gone ahead and followed the coast West, then South, all the way down here. Only took a day or two by boat, but she wanted to hoof it back up there if she could. Now HERE, she could find some people who wanted to adventure for real! And who did she see but that wolf chick she'd met that one time back at the port? "Heeeeeey, Luuuuuuna! Luuuuuunaaaaaaariaaaaaa!" Asagi called out, waving her hand over her head like her voice and presence wasn't enough to announce her arrival. Some people had compared her being in the general vicinity of someone was like shouting at the top of their lungs... Whatever that meant; she wasn't THAT bad. Okay, maybe to some people, but it couldn't be to all people.

Regardless, she slipped through the crowd of mostly-horrified parents and ecstatic children to stand next to her friend. At least, she considered the fox-girl a friend; whether or not that was mutual was up to Luna. She'd known the other girl, like, two days when she blew through port that one time. "Hey there, Luna! Long time no see; never expected to run into you here. You remember me, don'tcha ? Asagi, from Amberground!" Asagi re-introduced herself, displaying a wide, friendly grin. From Asagi's end, it might have been possible to think they'd grown up together. That, or she'd gone off the deep end and mistaken her for someone else. But who cared what the bystanders thought? They'd find something to gossip about anyhow. "Hey, boy, how's it goin'?" She said, addressing Cloud and giving him a quick scratch behind the ears. Yeah, yeah, he was a Lycan too, but so what? He turned into a wolf, right? Getting scratched behind the ears probably felt good, like how other pets liked that kind of treatment. Couldn't have been anything bad, eh? "C'mon, don't tell me you forgot all about me, huh?" Asagi asked, springing back up, still beaming.

Noir nodded in reply to Nox. She probably hadn't been focusing much, or at least not enough to feel the slight increase in the disturbances in the mortal world. Understandable; it wasn't a big increase, and his sister had been having fun. She hadn't been focusing on it, so she wouldn't have noticed, even if it were a normal situation. He was worried, though; the feel of the distortion had a bit of Trenia's feel to it. The goddess of time would never directly influence events, especially to the point they added to the distortion. He was worried something might have happened to her. But... No. She was the goddess of time, after all; if anything befell her, she would know about it before it happened.

"I think... we should check on Trenia later," He said, aiming the comment at Nox. "You can keep playing with your friends if you want," He finished. Trenia never liked to be intruded upon; rushing back to their realm and barging in on her would likely end up annoying her more than actually being beneficial. She was very touchy about that, and if she WAS manipulating events... then she had her reasons. She'd done it before, a long time ago, and her reasons had been justified. He would just have to hope for the best, he supposed. "... Why don't you play with Cyclos? We haven't seen her in a long time; she might be getting lonely."



Prisoner CR-12B

He was a bit curious as to what the woman who was in front of him right now was in terms of species... But that didn't really matter. She was pretty, but that was an off-hand observation; that sort of thing never really got much farther than noticing it. Judging by her musculature, she could handle herself in a fight. Maybe this was a solution to his problem... "Ah... All right, let me take a look at the injury," CR-12B said, pulling on a pair of disinfected gloves. Medicine had advanced a lot more than other technologies; they had invented a sort of liquid that sterilized gloves like these in just a few seconds, and also had the effect of bleaching them white. He pushed up his sleeves as he pulled on the gloves, showing his brand for a brief second before it was covered. He hoped she hadn't seen that. He strode over to her and peered at the arrow. It was a steel head, barbed, and it had been broken off about a fourth of a meter above the head. She had started to heal over a bit at the fringes of the wound, but the head wasn't in that area. Hm...

"...I see. This won't take long to treat, but it may hurt a bit, so try not to move while I'm removing the arrow, all right ma'am? ... So... what's your name, ma'am?" He asked, retrieving a scalpel from a clean tray of tools. He put his free hand against her injured shoulder. He slowed the blood flow to the area of the wound; that would make it numb, but it would also make less of a mess while he was working. He made a careful incision around the bottom corner of the arrowhead to start with; if he cut it out then removed it, it wouldn't be nearly as painful as if he simply ripped it out. "This might be a bit sudden... But are you traveling, by any chance? You look like you can handle yourself in a fight..."

Midnight

Midnight gave the man a shy smile, if he hadn't been asking questions, she would have retreated to the back of her mind with the spirits until the pain passed. "I was recently given the name Midnight. And yes, I guess you could call my wandering travelling. Maybe more like running...I don't know. And I can fight, but I try to avoid it. More of what you're treating now happens if I don't run, and then they yell and give me a headache." She sighed, not realizing how much about her situation she'd let slip. She was more or less wondering about the mark she'd spotted on his arm, but Emille suggested she didn't ask, so she didn't. Her flickering red eyes stared resolutely forward as the man was working, not wanting to have to see the whole thing.


Nox

Nox let Noir's suggestion rest in her mind for a moment, then shook her head. Nah, you're bugged, I can't play with you being bugged about something. Mebbe we can go see Kuuhaku, I hear she's back to running the post office under a mostly human disguise--supposedly she still floats around her employees. Or just wander around--that's always fun." She said, shrugging. "Besides Cyclos has Helios to play with, and like I said, I can't play when something's bothering you." She insisted.

Luna and Cloud

Luna cringed as Usagi yelled her name, ears flattening against her head for a moment and allowing the hyper girl to do all of her introductions. Cloud made his rumbling purr again as Usagi scratched his ears and then shifted to help out Luna. "Nice to see you again, Usagi." Luna said, cloud nodded.

"Nice to see anyone who greets us like normal people that isn't a kid." He said, glancing to see the kids that had been around him staring up at the barefoot, brown-haired young man with ears and a tail that had replaced their 'puppy'. Luna followed his gaze and giggled.

"Yes, my puppy is just like me--we can both change." She addressed them, shifting and then shifting back quickly, bringing "oohs" and "ahs" from the crowd. "Now can I please talk to my friend?" She asked, and the kids scampered off nearly as fast as they'd come after the first little girl. Most of the crowd dispersed then, and she turned her full attention back on Usagi. "so how's it going?" she asked.

"There ya go calling me Usagi again. It's Asagi, but nach, not the worst mispronunciation I've gotten, so no worries," Asagi replied, shrugging it off like she hadn't been referred to by the wrong name. Eh, whatever, worse things happened. "Aw, like you even have to ask! I'm the same island gal you met back in Amberground, just with a new haircut. Sitting around waiting for someone to take me up on the offer of goin' on an adventure got so boring the other day, so I hopped on a boat down here to see where I could get. Never expected to run into you guys down here!"

Of course, that was all the better for Asagi Hokkaido. That just meant she could travel with people she knew, and that made things all the more fun. The sheer volume of happiness gushing from her made it surprising the girl hadn't simply barreled through the crowd and tackled the other girl to the ground. But that would have been really weird, even by her standards. "Soooo whaddaya say, want to have another travelin' buddy? It'd be a lot more fun than me just wandering around by my lonesome. Plus, I wouldn't get to show off what I've learned while I've been practicing since we met way back at the end of last year. Can I tag along with ya? Pleeeeeease? I won't be any trouble, promise ~♥"

She waited a bit for a response, then got distracted by something else she remembered hearing about. "Oh! Did you two hear about that new transport... thing the engineers at the castle are making? Those rails they've been putting between the port and the castle are supposed to be what it runs on; I hear it'll cut down on a lot of dangers traveling between the castle and the port. You heard about it yet?"


Prisoner CR-12B
Medical tent; Amberground area

"Midnight, hm? I haven't heard that one before..." He said, a bit distracted by both her confirming she was a traveler, and that she could handle herself in a fight, as well as the arrow in her shoulder. A few quick, precise movements and the arrow was out, quick enough that it was most likely painless. "There, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Let's see... No traces of poison, and it looks like no infection. All right, just a few more moments and we're finished here," He said, taking a small hook and lacing the hole in her shoulder shut with a thin, sturdy thread. He kept his hand on her shoulder a few moments after bandaging her shoulder to speed the healing process up a bit for her, but not enough where it would be much more uncomfortable than a dull itch every now and again.

"It's a nice name, though. I can't even remember what mine was.... Ah, sorry, that was unprofessional of me. Your arm will heal up just fine; you can remove the stitches at sundown this evening, but any earlier and the wound could reopen. If you want to be safe, just wait until after dark to remove them. All you have to do is pull the string on the right side of the wound-- Your right, I mean," He said, quickly withdrawing after letting slip that he didn't even have a name. Would he always be Prisoner CR-12B? ... Probably so. She didn't seem like the type to take on random strangers... or anyone, really... as traveling companions, much less an amnesiac medic who could hardly defend himself in a fight. And yet... He felt like if he didn't at least ask, he would never get out of here; he'd be discovered and sent back to that cold, dark cell for the rest of his existence.

"And that's all. Other than that, you seem to be a perfectly healthy young woman," He said, finishing the last bit of his job. He never charged for small things like this; only bigger things, such as disemboweled patients. "I hope you'll forgive me for asking, Midnight, but... I'd like to come with you on your travels. There's something I need to see for myself further north. You see, I'm amnesiac; before three years ago, I can't remember anything. Not even my name. The only designation I had was CR-12B. I get the feeling that if I travel with you, I might be able to recover my memories. Of course, it's likely that I'll never get them back, but... I'd like to at least try. And who knows, maybe having an innocent medic following you around will help to avert people's arrows in directions other than yours? I understand if you don't want to, though; I'm a complete stranger who doesn't even know his name to give you. I'll understand if you would rather not travel with me at all. If that's it, then I've done all I can for your injury, and you can move on whenever you like."


Noir, god of shadows
Church of shadows
Neutral



Noir counted down on his fingers as soon as he felt a new presence join them, and sure enough, none other than Chaos charged through the door. And almost knocked over a lectern as well. Always one for flashy entrances, that one. He was fairly plain in appearance though; he was a lanky Human with sharp eyes and white hair that was billowing like smoke. His skin was pale like Noir and his sister's skin, but he looked healthier than the god of shadows did. A pair of metallic wings hung off his back at odd angles, another monstrosity of machinery holding them up. His attire brought to mind one of the new professions humans had made, for driving a new type of transportation vehicle in the works. To say Chaos looked angry was an understatement; judging from the way his arm looked, it was starting to turn into some kind of metallic abomination too.

"YOU SAID YOU'D HELP ME WITH THIS, NOIR!" He shouted, obviously not amused by his changing into some kind of abomination completely different than usual. At one point, he'd been more demonic, but as people's notions of chaotic changed, so did Chaos's appearance. "You got any idea how much this friggin' hurts?! Look at me, I'm turnin' into some kind of damned machine or something! DID YOU THINK I WAS JOKIN' WHEN I SENT YA THAT NOTE OR WHAT?!"

"... The way you described it, I did," Noir admitted, dropping to the ground and landing with little more than a gust of air. He'd been a friend of Chaos since his beginning when mortals gained such concepts. He had never been evil, but it was his sole purpose of existing to meddle in the affairs of mortals, a concept the younger god had been enraged to learn of. Noir could see why his condition was painful; it looked like the metallic parts of his body were leaking some sort of acid onto the organic parts, slowly burning away parts of him. "Did you talk to the others?"

"Yeah, did I talk to the others? What do you think?! They ever listen to me before? They're probably cracking up right now; 'Ha ha, look at the evil freak, gettin' what he deserves'. HAHAH, YEAH, REAL DAMN FUNNY!" Chaos shouted, obviously intending his comments for someone else. Normally, Chaos wasn't this rude to Noir, given that the god of shadows had been something of a father figure to him, but Noir understood that it was coming out of pain and anger and not disrespect. "Goddess of time won't change me back, goddess of healing won't heal me, and damn if I'm not getting payback from everyone for bein' 'The evil god that meddles with mortals and breaks the rules'-- Yeah, real great, hate me for existing, nice way for thanking me, bunch'a uptight bastards," Just by the way he was standing, you could tell he was in a lot of pain; the metal that had replaced what had once been a pair of elegant wings must have weighed as much as a full suit of armor on each side, and apparently the changes were more numerous than were visible.

"Chaos, calm down, please," Noir urged, gesturing to his sister. Chaos noticed her then, and he looked like he regretted his outburst from his expression.

"Argh, the kid... Sorry, kind of hard to think when you've got a FRICKIN' FURNACE FORMING IN YOUR STOMACH," Chaos apologized, rapping on his stomach and electing a metallic sound from inside. Noir didn't even want to think what that must feel like. "Gah... You two're the smart ones, right? Lookin' like a frickin' devil was bad enough, you two know some way to fix this, don't you? You can talk to the others and get 'em to help me; they all think I'm evil, like I deserve this crap. I'm gonna end up diein' at this rate!" Chaos begged, stumbling a bit but managing to seat himself on one of the Victorian-looking pews rather than fall. That was a bit more disturbing than the god of discord's newest look; Chaos was renowned for having a huge amount of resilience, hence why he hadn't been killed in the course of doing his job. That something could affect a god to that level was unheard of. That disturbance he felt earlier might not have been Trenia at all.

"Nox, see if you can get the goddess of healing and Kuuhaku here. I'll stay with Chaos and make sure he doesn't get worse," Noir instructed, trusting she wouldn't decide to be rebellious. He rarely told her to do things directly in this manner, but this situation was a bit different. Chaos needed help, and no one else liked him enough to help him with much of anything; most of them refused to so much as look in his direction because they disapproved of his direct interference with mortals. They would listen to Nox and Noir out of respect, though, so the god of discord always came to them for help. He thought it odd that Chaos had actually tried to seek out help for himself this time, but he was glad. That meant he was at least trying to make contact with the others. But the nature of this affliction was strange; Chaos had never before mentioned a shift in looks being painful. What was going on...?

Midnight nearly laughed at him, the man didn't realize how similar their situations sounded. Rather than laugh, though, she simply grinned and nodded. "You have no idea how similar our situations sound. I can't remember anything before a year ago, waking up with a huge hole in the stomach of my clothes, a ton of blood around it, and eight other voices in my head aside from mine. They told me a was in some huge battle and was left for dead with some nasty injury afterwards and pleaded for help, so they came and healed me in exchange for a sanctuary in my body--the spirits didn't know it was gonna erase my memory and give me red eyes, but that's what happened. Technically the full name they gave me is Midnight of the Red Moon since I can't remember my own. And CR...that's a moouthful...can we call you Doc if we're gonna travel with you?" she asked, feeling like a giant weight had lifted from her shoulders, finding someone like her.


Nox

Nox blinked as there was a wild interruption from chaos that greatly unsettled both Hannibal and herself, the Hellhound darting quickly to her side and grabbing the young Goddess's arm, ready to rip her out of harm's way if the need arose. It didn't, the fellow god just ranted loudly about the others before Noir ordered her to get Kuuhaku and the healing Goddess, and she set about it without question, greatly unsettled by the other God's situation. She grabbed Hannibal's arm and dragged him into the nearest dark shadow and disappeared.

When the two darted out of the shadows in a totally different building. The inside smelled like paper, if paper could have a smell, mixed with hard work. The greatroom of the postal service's main office in Amberground was mostly white-walled and covered with posters advertising the service and promoting the workers to work hard. The room was dominated by an area that loked like the front of a bank, blue-uniformed employees standing behind a single long desk and two great staircases leading up both side of the circular room. Nox shook her head and ran to the nearest employee, not noticing the large black cat by the boy's side as she ran up to him. "Kuuhaku, where is Kuuhaku?" She demanded, the guy looked like he was in his late teens, maybe early twenties, wearing the classic postal service uniform, and wore a surprised expression. "It's an emergency, okay? I need to know where she is!" She demanded, the guy nodded.

"Her office, she's in her office, Nox." He said, Nox nodded and darted up the staircase, ran down the hall on the left and took it to the rigt side door at the end. She didn't bother to knock, just threw open the door.

"Kuuhaku, Noir needs you at the church, NOW. I don't care what you're doing--GO!" She growled before running further into the room to the nearest shadows, Hannibal's arm still in her hand, and shadow jumped again.

OOC: Gotta go right now, I'll post for Luna laters.

"No...damn...idea..."

How the Necro-dragon wished she had her infamously annoying best friend here with her. Every step of her boots made a slight clinking sound, like ones the cowboys made with their spurs in western movies when it was the noon showdown. Ryu rubbed her thick, gauntlet like gloves up and down, knowing just one tug of a tab on the inside of her glove would make blades come out along where her bone was respectively. In her head, she hadn't any idea where she was, or what happened to cause her to come here. The worst part was that she was alone, not even her best friend was here. At least someone couldn't comment on her vampire slayer appearance.

Ryu tipped her had down in front of her face, hiding what of her identity she could. She wanted to get out of the place she was in, and as soon as possible. She didn't want to make trouble for herself, though that was very much unavoidable with her ongoing reputation. She could still attempt to avoid bringing out a certain trouble to others here.

"Find some food and water...surely I can stomach any food this place has. Just remember Ryu...make sure no one finds out what your blood can do...make sure that they don't come here..."

Ryu kept walking, and if anyone had passed her, it would have been a wonder how she could see where she was going, that is if you knew Ryu was a she. Incidentally, it was odd that a lone traveller was on foot, and for an unknown distance without some sort of steed. Ryu, truly being a dragon, was against riding horses. It was awkward for her to ride another creature. Still, for the sake of keeping an invisible profile, or as low of one that was possible, she might wanted to have acquired one. Maybe horses didn't exist here, maybe some other beastly thing that was more to her appeal would present itself in some angry fashion for invading it's territory, thus making Ryu have to negotiate with it.

"I;d love to ride you Aldvir, but you'd be way too much of an attention magnet...not to mention, you'd level this forest by just slithering in it."

Yes, Ryu spoke to her blade that was non-materialized, for the demon serpent that possessed it was very much alive. Ryu could just feel the serpent's response, knowing it agreed with her, but it was very eager to keep unwanted strangers away when the time arose.

Ryu kept walking for an unknown amount of time through the forest. It was quiet, which was good for her, as her sense of hearing was rather acute. She kept on, hoping her boots weren't cheap and would fall apart. She wondered what her friends back home were doing, knowing her one adopted brother would be a pain in the ass as usual to hide his concern. Luckily she could still feel them trough empathy, so she knew she wasn't too far away from home.

She kept thinking, not really thinking of where she was going, but it's not like she had anywhere to go. On and on she meandered, until her thoughts were stopped. Her eyes snapped into focus, and her body froze on the spot. There was a familiar, foreboding feeling that she knew all too well, one she had hoped to high hell and lower heaven wasn't here.

Ryu looked around and around for the presence. "Where are you...you ugly wannabe bastard..."

Examining her surroundings, Ryu saw nothing for a long time, but the feeling wasn't fleeting. Soon enough, she saw a dark blur out of the corner of her eye, and immediately, the shapeshifter pursued. She knew what that being could do, and what it would do, Ryu had an obligation to get to it before it went to kill anything.



OOC: Whoever feels up to having a random monster jump in and ruin their current happenings...feel free to bunny said monster. Oh, and you can make up what it looks like too. FYI.

Cinder and Caron
Road/country thingymabob outside of Castle :D
Neutral

The twins shared looks at Solaris' words. A girl who didn't know where she was going? Well, it was easier, in some ways, yet that made everything more confusing. Cinder knew she was changing the subject with her last sentence, but he really didn't mind. She didn't seem to be any threat, except for that curious magical feel about her. He would ask about that later, after all, she probably had her reasons for keeping secrets.

Caron however, was always one to brighten at the attention they received. "Gosh, tales of us all the way in the Castle...that's pretty big." He said, almost to himself. He thought for a moment, then said, "That was when we still had to be mercenaries, or just after. Ever since Cinder joined the Magi we had to quit the mercenary business. Although we do tasks for the Magi now, although most of them are really weird."

"That's magic for you," Cinder replied quietly. Idily the drew his finger along his staff, and the bright blue crystal on the top flickered in response.

The warrior shrugged in response. "We've traveled most of the continent, seen lots of weird things too. One of the oddest was when we were at the base of the Fujin Mountains, and we came across this giant serpent --"

Cinder let his brother talk. Although Cinder was a masterful storyteller, it was his brother who was more willing to talk and ramble. The Magi just stared at his staff, and anyone would have sworn if that he was talking to it. He was hardly paying attention to what Caron was saying, but he did see other things. For example, there was something that flickered at the edge of his vision, something moving fast. He snapped his head up so fast that it looked like he would get whiplash.

Caron noticed the movement and saw the expression on his brother's face. "Cinder, what is it?" He asked, his hand instantly going for his sword.

He did not get an answer. Instead the mage hefted up his staff and watched the place where he had last seen the thing. Unfortunately, it had been a little to his left so he didn;t see it coming until Caron shouted, and he swung without thinking. The crystal on his staff connected with the thing with a loud thunk, and the crystal lit up with a bright flash. A blast of wind escaped the staff, sending the creature hurling.

As it hit the ground, Cinder managed to get a good look at it. It was a cat, about as big as a tiger, but pitch black with six legs and yellow eyes. He had certainly seen weirder, but this was random even by his standards. He saw a flash of steel and one of Caron's daggers flew throught eh air and buried itself in the creature'sside, causing it to snarl in pain. While it was distracted, the mage raised his hand and shouted a cword in command; blood red flames crackled from his fingertips and flew at the ebast, causing a wailing inferno that caused it to r=back p to avoid being burned.

((Sooo, I made Ryu's thingy into a....something. I just typed what came to my mind first :P))

OOC: Because you didn't specify a goddess of healing, I'll insert my own into the situation.

Kuuhaku, goddess of space(NPC)
Amberground, Postal Service Main Office
Neutral


Kuuhaku blinked, staring at the place where her sister by adoption had disappeared. Why on earth...? She shook her head and sighed, making her silvery hair float wildly behind her while her golden eyes glowed in curious concern. "Guess I'll have to find out myself..." The space goddess muttered, turning her head to a large fox made entirely of golden flames laying on the carpet of her office just beside the door. "Yamada, it appears we'll need to be taking a trip to the Church. I'm going to write a note to stick to my door, go tell Lloyd he's in charge until we get back." She told him, the fox lurched to his feet, flashed as his appearance switched over into that of a young man with a long golden blond ponytail behind him and slipped out of the room. The goddess snatched a sheet of clean paper from the corner of her desk and a pen and scrawled quickly :
Family emergency, will be gone for who-knows-how-long, Lloyd is in charge if it's that important. No parties, don't take a day off without permission, love you all!
-Kuuhaku(a.k.a your BOSS)

Then smiled at her handiwork, and stood to pin it to the door as Yamada came back in.

"Lloyd's not happy about your sudden ditching, but his reply was 'Deities and stuff I don't get--go and come back soon.' so we can go without worries he'll let the carriers party the whole time we're gone." The Yoko told her, Kuuhaku nodded and pinned her note to the door before turning and grabbing Yamada's arm like Nox had done with Hannibal, grinned, and then they disappeared.

The two appeared next to Noir in the Chruch a moment later, Kuuhaku floating, Yamada standing. "Nox said you wanted me to... What the heck?" She asked, golden eyes flickering to Chaos and stopping her thoughts completely. This was definately a reason for Nox to yell at her. She pulled at the cuff of her blue postal service uniform and then tugged nervousl at her skirt, slightly unsettled at what she saw.

Nox
???
Neutral


Nox sighed as she jumped out into the middle of what looked to be a very boring garden almost totally devoid of animals and lacking many flowers. The healing godess's herb garden was an expansive yet unimpressive thing to all but those with an expansive knowledge of healing herbs, who would have marveled at all there was there. The goddess herself stood by a large bush and was methodically pulling the leaves off it for who-knew-what. She appeared a plain woman, short and lean with long black hair pulled into a neat braid along her back that had various vines and flowers intertwined in it and forming almost a circlet around the top of her head. Her slanted green eyes were seen from behind small wire-rimmed glasses that perched on nearly the edge of her nose, and her skin was a healthy bronze so that she could have passed for a woman of Asian heritage. She wore a simple green shirt and a black skirt under a long white coat that hung open as she dropped the pulled off leaves into a basket at her feet, a stickler for the old methods, Shika was an older goddess, and a but more stuck in her ways than the younger deities. "I'm sorry for the intrusion, Shika, but Noir has resquested for your prescence in the Church of Shadows." Nox said politely, she couldn't just order the goddess around like she could Kuuhaku, who trusted her judgement a great deal more. She knew Shika would take more time to deal with.

"I knew he'd run to Noir." The goddess said softly, not a hint of anger in her tone. "I won't help a rule-breaker. I won't smile upon those who enjoy taking part in futile activities." She told Nox, the younger goddess shook her head.

"He's Chaos, Shika, it's not like he can help it, it's in his nature. Why do you like plants, why do you dislike rule-breakers? It's in your nature as the goddess of your aspect. That's what his is, and now because of it, he's in pain. Like it or not, it's your duty to at least ease it some." Nox told her, the goddess slowly lifted herself from the bent position she'd assumed by the bush to stare a the girl.

"Child, don't you tell me what my duty entails." She growled, and Hannibal responded with a loud snarl of his own. Nox held the goddess's gaze without flinching.

"I'll tell you what you don't see clearly, and that's one of the things. He needs help, and the only place he knows to get it from is Noir and me. We're the only ones who grant him any freaking compassion, and only because we're often misunderstood ourselves! Dang it, Shika, I'm not asking you to heal a devil, I--no, we are asking you to help one of the less fortunate of our kind, and if I have to drag you there at this point, I will, because honestly, this change he's going though is scaring the crap out of me!" She shouted. The older goddess's eyes widened in surprise while Nox's narrowed in determination. "Now are you going to come nicely or am I going to have to drag you?" She asked softly, Shika shook her head.

"It seems you, dear child of the shadows, have grown quite bold. I'll go, but I will not promise you I'll heal him." Shika responded, leaning down to pick up her massive wicker herb basket and nodded to her. "Take me there." Nox smirked in triumph and that was it--she was back again, this time with company.

Luna and Cloud

Luna cringed "Agh, sorry, you remind me of a bunny and the word's only one letter difference, and we've been everywhere, so many names and faces begin to blend together--slip of the tongue, I'll try not to let it happen again." She said before glancing to Cloud to address the next question. As if readong his companion's mind, he nodded.

"Sure, you can tag along as long as you don't mind the occaisional exterminator work we do to make money now and then--as well as the periodic trips to our home village." He paused to let that sink in before remembering the other information he'd heard. "And that's what they're for? Luna and I have seen them, but never thought much about them. We travel by foot everywhere anyway because it's easier for us." He admitted.

Noir, god of shadows
Church of shadows
Neutral



Noir would have greeted Kuuhaku, except for the fact that almost exactly when she appeared Chaos's energy suddenly skyrocketed. This was accompanied by a cry of intense pain from the god of discord. The metal prongs that made up his wings had liquefied, and were forming more pieces of machinery with which to move them. The sound was terrible; like metal grinding against stone. Both wings rose up and came back down, the sharpened tips of his wings shearing through the floor and rooting him to the spot. Outside, the sky turned red from the sudden burst of energy, and Chaos swore under his breath. "Ngh... It got out... dammit, I hope those 'heroes' you keep talking about can deal with that; I don't think Harmony is going to help me with this at all."

"It's all right, I'll do what I can to help," Noir replied, noticing that it hadn't just been Chaos's wings to change shape. The left side of his ribcage was exposed now, parts of the bone looking more metallic than bone, and a black cylinder was where his stomach should have been. Noir was more shocked that Chaos was still ALIVE, much less with enough power left to let out explosions of it in pain. This was not good, not good at all.


Prisoner CR-12B
Amberground area
neutral



"I don't see a problem with that name. Thank you for allowing me to travel with you. It's convenient I already had some supplies packed; we can get going as soon as you're ready," CR-12B replied, retrieving a fairly large doctor's bag. The top was filled with medical supplies, but he had other supplies inside as well. From outside, there was a terrible roar, coming from down the road. "What was that...?" He asked, though more rhetorically than actually asking. Regardless, he was out of the tent and investigating quickly. The sky had turned a blood red color, and the clouds were black, though they quickly returned to normal color. However, the monster did not disappear; it was twice the size of either of them, vaguely Human in shape and wielding a club that looked more like a middle-aged birch pulled out of the ground. Worse, it was heading in the direction of the port.

"This isn't good. I don't have any offensive magic, and I don't think either of us is in any condition to fight that thing. Still... If it reaches the town, it looks like its' skin is more than enough to stop shots from the guards' guns. I can keep the two of us healed while I try and spot a weakness you can exploit, but we should hurry!" He urged, resolving to stay close to Midnight to deliver any medical assistance she would need. This was bad; very, very bad.


Asagi Hokkaido
Port Belle
Neutral


"Neh, no harm done; we're cool," Asagi said, beaming and engulfing the two Lycans in an all-out bear hug, though she quickly let go. "Thanks so much! I've been hunting for traveling partners for so long, I thought I'd never find someone to wander the countryside with! .... Uh-oh, red sky is never good," She broke off, looking up at the sky before a shadow swooped down from above and slashed sharp talons at the hyper-energetic young woman. If she'd been a second slower, she would've needed a new leg; that came close to hitting her. But giant bird or not, she wasn't going to let it terrorize the towns people. "Yay for something exciting to do, but why;d it have to be HERE? We need to take that thing down before it really hurts someone! Namely, us or one of the towns people!"



Solaris Harribel
Castle area
Neutral


Solaris was glad that Mr. Caron had taken the shift in conversation. The less she had to decide, the better. She didn't trust her skills in that area any more; she'd made too many bad choices at the castle. It would be better if she left the decision making to others. Besides, she had left the castle to avoid having to make any more poor choices and put more strain on her family. It was better she leave... "I heard some of the men in the town talking about you two while we were leaving, honestly. I haven't heard much about things going on outside the castle that hasn't been about the revolution," She answered, offering a shy smile. She was surprised when Mr. Cinder reacted weirdly to something, and quickly withdrew to behind them. She could feel a bit of Cinder's magic, so she knew he was competent, even if she possessed more raw power. He had a lot more experience; she'd end up hurting herself or them if she tried to fight with them, so it would be better if she kept out of the way. It was a good thing she withdrew when she did; not three seconds after, the monster that Mr. Cinder had seen attacked from the direction she'd been standing. Solaris stiffled a screech of fright; that was unbecoming of her. "D...Do you want me to help, sirs? I-I'm not very good with using my magic..." Solaris offered, feeling a bit embarrassed and useless at not being able to help. Maybe it would be better if she just hid behind the nearest inanimate object and let Mr. Cinder and Mr. Caron handle it.

Ata
Amberground Area
Neutral


Ata pouted to herself as she walked barefoot down the dirt path. She couldn't run to town in her much faster Tigress form, since by doing so she'd easily leave her newly found Dwarf ally behind. Unlike most everyday people she came across, this Dwarf was at least likable and was quite the gentleman.

She'd never actually seen a Dwarf before, in person at least. All she'd ever heard of them were their excellent mining and Earth magic skills. They had all moved out of the land into The Abyss once the humans made a government. Perhaps they were avoiding the corruption of power?

Ata was torn from her thoughts when the Dwarf, Ghalm was his name, finally spoke up.

Ghalm Anvilhand
Amberground Area
Neutral


"Uhh, so...where are ye from?" He asked, gaining the courage to strike a conversation. When she replied, she had the smallest hint of sadness in her voice. "From a small Lycan village. It's...gone now."

Ghalm didn't really know what to say at this point, so he said the first thing that came to his mind. "I-I'm sorry the hear that." He said back awkwardly. "We-"

The Dwarf was cut off mid-sentence by a terrible noise and and even more terrifying sight. It was a roar unlike anything he'd ever heard before, savage and deep. The sky was suddenly blood red in color but quickly returned to their normal state. However, that wasn't the end of their troubles.

A monster, massive and humanoid. It was wielding a tree, no doubt as a weapon! It wasn't heading their way, but towards the port.

The two finally shook out of their speechless state. "What should we do, Ata?" Ghalm asked his companion. "I..honestly don't know. Should we attempt to attack it?" "I wouldn't take the chance at the moment. Who knows what this thing can do..?"
