  1. BGM: Yggdrasil's Embrace The sun began to crest over the eastern horizon, its golden rays showering down upon the lands, each alerting those sleeping on the surface below that it was finally time to awaken; the darkness and mystery of night no longer plagued the lands. Creatures of various different shapes and sizes did as commanded, and rose from their slumber, beginning to go out and seek out the first meal of the day: breakfast. The golden rays bathed the plants with the energy they would need to create their own food, their coloration intensifying in the sunlight. The light reflecting off of the various oceans of the world gave the skies above a blue hue, and the lack of clouds around mixed with the cool temperatures and slow breeze made this new day almost perfect. In a forest covering a rocky hill with a cave entrance upon its southern facade, some of the land's creatures were going about their normal day until an anomaly occurred. BGM: Danger! A large portal opened up in the middle of the forest, a roar not of this world being heard as it quickly expanded, the creatures around fleeing the scene as fast as they could. The portal seemed like it would swallow everything around indiscriminately with the rate it was expanding at, several small rocks and some loose vegetation being pulled into it as well. As it was pulling in all of the small objects it could, however, it also threw something out of itself: a person. They tumbled upon the ground due to the momentum at which they were thrown with, their blue, over-sized coat throwing all kinds of dirt and decaying vegetation into the air, a sort of trail being formed by their path. Eventually, they came to a halt upon a rock, letting out a low groan as they hit it. After throwing out what could be considered its "previous meal", the portal closed as fast as it opened, the groaning of the person being the only thing able to be heard. BGM: Mother Earth of Dishonesty ~ PART 1 A few coughs escaped the person's throat through their mouth as they laid within the sediment upon the forest floor, seeming to be quite exhausted from something. After about ten minutes of laying down, they slowly moved their arms underneath their body to push themselves up somewhat, revealing a long, brown hair with a green ribbon tied to a hank of hair at the top, though it was ruined by various leaves, rocks, and twigs trapped within her locks. She pushed herself up enough so that her face could be seen, revealing her emerald eyes and dirt-spotted face. She winced as the pain from before still hadn't receded, but still took the time to look around the area, a pained growl escaping her mouth. ???: Urgh...dammit, Daniel! I told you that wouldn't go...so...well... Her voice trailed off as she saw that nobody was around, including the creature she was fighting, thankfully. ???: ...Guys? Are you all hiding? Come on, this isn't funny! Urgh! She gripped her right side as a sharp pain coursed through her body from it. She removed her right arm from the coat sleeve it was in and put her hand upon the spot for a moment, then removed it, checking the palm. No blood, thankfully, so she wasn't going to have to bandage anything. Hopefully. Maybe they were trying their best to hide from her. ???: Guys, come on! It got me really good and I might be bleeding! Elizabeth! Elizabeeeeeeth! She let her cry echo through the forest for a while, hoping that the kindhearted girl she knew would come to her aid after hearing that a fellow party member was badly injured, let alone the leader of the party. She let out a sigh and lowered her head to the forest floor. ???: I swear, if I get up and I find you all hiding somewhere, I'm going to make sure it's the last time you do anything in your miserabl- Agh! The pain shot through her body again. It felt like something was hitting it every so often, causing the pain to flare up once it did. She looked down at where the pain was coming from again, and, of course, her- ???: W-wh-what the hell?! Where are my things?! Except for what she first left home with, everything that she once had was now all gone. She dug through her coat frantically, hoping to find all of the treasure and weapons she had stashed up misplaced within the coat or in a sleeve, maybe even a pocket, but there was nothing. However, she did find what was causing the occasional pain in a pocket: a strange orb that shook occasionally. It was something she had never seen in her life. ???: ...where'd this come from? I don't remember getting anything like this on any hunt... She examined the object closely, but gazing at it started to hurt her eyes, so she threw it aside. After doing so, however, it felt like her energy started to come back to her. Finding it rather odd, but having no good reason to question why it was happening, she finally stood up and dusted herself off entirely, making sure to remove the sediment within her hair carefully, so as not to ruin it. As she did this, she took another glance around herself. Still no sign of the others. ???: You guys must be really determined. I saw you all get pulled into that portal, and I wouldn't have followed you in if you hadn't gone in, now come out here! And give me my things back, too! I promise I won't kill any of you if you do...I'll just make sure you regret ever doing it! She walked around the area as she spoke, looking for any signs of the presence of another person. (Chance make.) (Let this also mark the beginning!)
  2. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn Idealis opened her eyes slowly as the sunlight crept in from the window, bathing the entire bedroom in its golden light. Idealis slowly opened her eyes as the rays of light flashed upon her eyelids, and groaned, speaking to herself in a low voice. Idealis: Ugh, sunlight...I don't like it... Forced by the impatience of the sun to bring an abrupt end to her lovely dream, she proceeded to sit up in bed, still quite groggy from being woken up before she was ready. With no reason to stay in bed any longer, she got out of bed and began getting dressed as quietly as possible, so as not to awaken the sleeping demon in the bed adjacent to hers. As she was preparing for the torturing day that lay ahead of them, she would find her nostrils being raided by a rogue scent of deliciousness, one which caused her stomach to growl. Loudly. Both nervous and embarrassed by this, she, after finally putting on her coat over everything, proceeded to make her way out of the room, once again, as quietly as possible. Who knew what would happen if she accidentally awoke a demon, especially one that seemed to be as unstable as the one she decided to share a room with.
  3. Idealis: That's...a very ambitious goal. I think he was just saying it out of kindness, y'know, like everyone else usually does. Anyway... Idealis made her way back to her bed and sat down, letting out a sigh of relief. Idealis: ...what an exhausting day...and to think it's just going to get worse from here. She slid her coat and socks off, and proceeded to pull the blanket over herself, beginning to get comfortable. Idealis: I guess we're gonna be stuck here for the long run, aren't we? There's no hope in getting home early; with how many problems are cropping up, I know we're going to be in this far beyond the end of this so-called "threat"...it just shows all of the signs of being a never-ending loop. She yawned quietly. Idealis: But, I guess we should sleep on it for now and hope for the best tomorrow. Good night, Lizzy... And with that, she shut her eyes, beginning to doze off into a dreamland of optimism for the future.
  4. For TERA players: 


  5. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums Muireann nods, and proceeds to begin following them to the point wordlessly. As of now, there were no more signs that she was on the verge of "breaking".
  6. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums By now, the inflection in her voice had vanished. She approached the knight. Muireann: Understood. Awaiting movement. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn Idealis scratched her head. Avoiding a potential threat wasn't something she did unless she knew she wasn't capable of taking it on, but by the sounds of it, with all of them together, they could easily take him on and deal with him before his antics became a problem. Idealis: This is how I feel about it: if there's a weed that's starting to grow, you have to pull it out of the ground. So what exactly is he capable of that would make him someone to wait on? Isn't he going to get stronger over time? On top of that, there's a lot of us, and what sounds like one of him, and everyone here's capable of something, so I doubt it'd be that much of an issue for us.
  7. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums The creature was hit by the powerful blast, being unable to move out of the way. It could be heard making a sound that almost sounded like a low yell. What was left behind was nothing more than a puddle of purple goo. The arm that was sliced had also turned into the same goo. Muireann, meanwhile, stared at the puddle for a moment, waiting to see if it something else was going to happen. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn Idealis: No, I've got it. Just keep an eye outside. She proceeded to open the door all the way. Upon hearing and seeing Seraph, she waved at him. Idealis: Heya, Seraph! Glad to see you made it out of that fight in one piece! Idealis let out a sigh. Idealis: Does the bad news ever stop coming? Why can't we just get one thing done and get a break afterwards? Ugh... She flipped some hair from out of the front of her face. Idealis: Let me guess...we have to find this guy and kill him off before he causes something else that we'll have to fix, right?
  8. This was definitely a cause for concern. Idealis: Umm...sure, I guess? She got up from her hiding spot and, still keeping an ear out for any strange noises from the window, proceeded to walk over to the door and open it slightly, just enough to allow her to peer out at him. Idealis: Soooo...how did you know where we were and why do you want to talk?
  9. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums Muireann examined the situation, the arm beginning to hover back towards what looked to be the creature's torso. Her visor slid back out. Muireann: Altruism of 15K is...appreciated... She turned her attention to the torso and arm that was lleft of the creature; it appeared that its legs were blown off in the explosion, yet it still refused to die. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn Idealis turned hear head towards the door as the sound of knuckles being rapped upon it echoed through the room, the suspicious girl raising an eyebrow. Idealis: Eh? Who's there?
  10. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn ???: I don't know how they feel about it, but as long as you're with them, it's fine! Just try not to wake up any other customers, okay? Meanwhile, outside of the inn, a figure stood close to the door, looking into the building. They were ignoring the fighting going on close by. ???: (A group of people not from this world...it seems that they actually managed to bring in the cavalry they wanted after all, then. I guess the time is right, anyhow...now, for me to gather my own cavalry.) The mysterious figure proceeded to walk off, whistling quietly as the snow crunched beneath them. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums Muireann would find herself being pushed to the ground by 15K, the woman taking a rather heavy fall as the arm narrowly missed her. She grunted as she hit the ground. Muireann: Explaination for 15K's action required.
  11. The visor on her head slid back into the headband, signalling that she was close to resting, or possibly something else. Muireann: ... Suddenly, the arms of the creature came flying out from the smoke left behind by the explosion, trails of smoke coming from behind them. One was headed right for Shadow Wolf's back, whilst the other was flying right at Muireann's back, both with the bladed part at the front, making them almost like spears flying through the air.
  12. Muireann: Under...stood...will await...escort... Muireann: I...shall seek repairs...when I...return... The explosion was quite sizable and caused a small shockwave to travel through the area, one far more powerful than it should have been. The explosion itself also caused several windows on buildings and cars around to shatter.
  13. Idealis let out a sigh, though it was hard to tell if it was one of relief, exhaustion, or annoyance. Idealis: So, let me get this straight...your brother came to kill the both of you, but you both managed to fight him off, causing him to leave this..."army" and "Heaven" out of apparent humiliation. And you're obviously not worried about him hunting you both down when you're both unaware and avenging his honor, so I guess that's of no concern for any of us, right? Idealis: And then it turns out that Seraph, the guy that's one of the coldest in "Heaven" and the least open, is actually really clingy to Agni for some unknown reason. Are you sure that loneliness is the problem here? I imagine he could've easily found someone else more...mmm...fitting, for lack of a better term, to be a sort of brother to him. And don't get me started on how everyone else around him is...pretty much the same way, just on a hopefully somewhat lesser scale. She stopped for a moment and sent a judging glance at Elizabeth before continuing. Idealis: It just doesn't make sense to me no matter how I try to piece it together. Even factoring in how long they've been together, it's still hard for me to believe that they just had a normal friendship that expanded into a brotherly bond. This guy sounds like he would slay an entire army just to get to Agni if they stood in his way. Frustrated, she groaned and fell upon her bed, gazing up at the ceiling. Idealis: (They call themselves angels, but are they really deserving of that title? It sounds more like the place is run by a bunch of gifted people with personal problems...someone needs to have a talk with the gods in charge up there. And then the possibility of a manipulator among us being a future problem...Iago would be so useful right now...) Suddenly, three bright flashes occurred outside of the window, accompanied by shattering sounds for each one, causing Idealis to shoot up and look outside of the window. Idealis: These witches are taking their fights way too- She quickly slid off of the bed and hid behind it as a person dressed in thick clothing slammed against the window back-first and fell down, the window somehow remaining undamaged, but a loud sound coming from the impact. Outside, a group of people surrounding the fight in an arc could be seen and heard cheering, someone else standing in front of the arc proudly, possibly waiting for the person that was just thrown away to get up.
  14. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums The creature swiped at Muireann once again, though she was able to hop back and away from the attack, causing it to be hit by the bullet and for its body to quickly become petrified, its movements halting, though the arms were still floating in place despite the fact that they were stone. Muireann glanced at 15K. Muireann: Threat neutralized. She then proceeded to contact Hakumen. Muireann: Threat has been neutralized by Shadow Wolf. Awaiting further orders... Her voice could be heard gaining inflection for a moment. MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn The girl at the front counter smiled at the big man despite his rather menacing appearance. ???: There sure was! You wouldn't happen to be with them, would you?
  15. Muireann saw what the android was doing, and the arms were definitely a cause for concern. Muireann: 15K must keep its distance at this point in time; the arms of the creature seem to share the same traits as the weapons of the royal guards. And the creature's right arm was coming right down at 15K's head and upper body, threatening to cleave into it and turn it into slag. Wanting to prevent this from happening, Muireann proceeded to charge right at the creature with her shield, the shield slamming into its torso and knocking it back, though the left arm managed to cut into her shield, leaving behind a slag-layered hole and narrowly missing her torso.
  16. The knives bounce off of the creature's body, leaving small marks behind where they struck it. The arms were now attached to the body once again, causing the creature to let out another gasping sound. The fireball behind them hit the ground and exploded, most likely blowing 15K away, but only pushing Muireann towards the creature slightly. Muireann: Understood. Taking note of the creature's arms, Muireann kept her shield up, but also kept her distance. If she was to create an opening, it would require both her and 15K to ensure it at this point. Meanwhile, the creature began its approach towards Muireann, marching beyond two cars that had been flipped onto their sides from a previous fireball exploding.
  17. The body proceeded to lob a large fireball into the air, it beginning to quickly come down in an arc from the air. Muireann's shield slamed into the body, causing the same whooo sound to be heard again and for the body to reel back. The two arms could be seen flying to it rather quickly, both approaching from left and right, respectively.
  18. CANDOR CITY: Northwestern Slums The two arms began to fly back to the body after having successfully snuffed out their life flames. Muireann approached the creature, causing it to unleash a lightning bolt at her, though it would be deflected into a random direction by her armor. The creature backed away again, a fiery aura forming around it. Muireann: I shall corral the threat into a secluded alleyway as it attempts to use magic and both I and 15K shall trap it within the alleyway, leaving it no way to escape. It will continue to use magic upon me and will only focus upon me, so 15K is safe when following through with this plan. She steeled herself in preparation for the next attack. Muireann: 15K may attack freely, given the current circumstances. She then charged directly at the creature with her shield in front of her. CANDOR CITY: Warriors' Hangout Penelope: Wooow, that's awesome! She then caught the "master" remark. Penelope: Erm..."master"? Are you into that servant thing people like to do? Do you make him food and stuff when he asks for it? The commander interrupted her. ???: Allow me to stop you right there. By "master", I believe she is referring to a mentor highly skilled in a specific art she wishes to learn, not something to do with a fetish, Penelope. Penelope: Oh, right! Heh heh...silly me... The commander sighed. ???: Well, since we are on the topic right now, would you mind if I were to ask which art he is...or was, I suppose...teaching you, Lucina? I am quite interested in learning more myself. Penelope: Annnnnd, we'll gladly help to find him! MAGICAL KINGDOM OF VERVE: Elysia Inn Idealis looked completely horrified for a moment, then her horror turned into anger. She ignored Elizabeth's current downward spiral and glared sharply at Magnum. Idealis: He...supported you...in killing your own brother? She was an only child, but the mere thought of killing her own sibling, if she even had one, was enough to cause her to clench a fist, it beginning to shake. She sent it down at the bed. Idealis: I'm sorry, but I have nothing more to say on the matter. Anything else has to be directed towards Agni at this point, and I would prefer if it were done in private. Let's just move onto something else... She took a deep breath, calming herself down, then faced Magnum again. Idealis: I guess I should ask about your relationship to Seraph as well. He seems like a complete opposite to you, so...I'm really curious about that as well.
  19. The arms quickly follow up their attacks after having lost the frost aura from the attack landing and proceeded to swing horizontally at the now slowed guards, attempting to, once again, end them in an instant. Meanwhile, Muireann arrived at the location, and slid into a proper defensive stance with both her shield and swordspear(lance) raised. Muireann: Threat displays massive power. Employing defensive measures. 15K, I was told to cooperate with you to detain this threat. Neutralization is key; only eliminate if necessary. The body proceeded to send a spray of icicles at Muireann, now once again ignoring 15K, though she held her ground, the icicles breaking upon contact with her armor. The body backed away by a step, now gaining an electric aura.
  20. The body gained a cold aura. The electric bolt's path curved downwards slightly to follow his movements, but narrowly missed him, slamming into the ground just inches away from his left foot. The clanking of heavy metal upon the ground could be heard approaching quickly, the body immediately turning in the direction of the sound.
  21. The creature was struck by the object, causing a strange whooo sound to come from it and for it to reel back, though the object itself fell to the ground. The body immediately retaliated by sending an electric bolt directly at the android.
  22. Muireann: Understood. Will employ non-lethal force against threat. The knight picked up her pace. The creature, meanwhile, let out another strange gasping sound before releasing the arms once more, the arms beginning to pursue the guards in flight, though they seemed to have gained the frosty aura the body once had. The body proceeded to turn towards 15K, an electric aura forming around it. Instead of approaching him, however, it remained still, as though it were gauging him.
  23. Muireann: Understood. Approaching location. The knight began her approach to the location in question. Meanwhile, the two arms flew back to the body, both now gaining an electric aura with the body. Despite the smokescreen, it seemed like it was able to see the guards trying to use it as cover. The arms pointed at one guard each and fired off fast-moving lightning bolts, one at each, which also happened to drain the aura, though it was soon replaced by a frost one. The pebble struck the creature, though it uselessly bounced off of it. The creature did not turn its attention to the android, however; it seemed more focused upon the guards attempting to flee the scene.
