Introduction

The world of Patriaelux is a unified land. The entire world marches under one banner and Anitia smiles on her children, the human race. She has gifted them with the ability to use light itself for good deeds. There are seven regions in this global nation, each one ruled by a master of one of the colors. They are known as the Spectrum. Then there is the White, both blind and unable to use light at all and yet favored by Anitia for reasons that none dare ask. Finally, there is the Prism. The ruler of all. The defacto emperor, even if it is unofficial. The only man to be able to craft all colors of the spectrum. His will is always carried out, his back is always a target, and the world watches him with a mix of fear, respect, and love. And even as the world's science continues to evolve and grow, now reaching an age of industry, the Light still guides the path. But not all is well. Hidden behind the veil of peace and tranquility, secret wars are wages, alliances are made, assassinations are attempted and some even go through. Corruption is rampant if well hidden. And the Prism. A man who is supposed to have sworn off all earthly sins has a bastard son. More importantly, he has a weakness. A weakness he needs to keep hidden and safe. He has sent his son towards the backwater town of Rekton, to keep him safe. But eyes have watched...and are on his trail.

The Light is divided into seven colors. No one choses which color they use, or how gifted they are. That is left to fate. However, once they begin to use magic, whichever color is their primary attribute, a ringed halo slowly forms in the center of their irises, matching their gifted color.

Sub-red, invisible to all and unable to be made solid or even into a liquid. Sub-red is the color of heat, and aside from superviolet, it is the rarest color to be used by mages. It has no other use than to be a source of heat. Its functionality in combat is incredibly flexible. It has many uses but none of the really practical, save if you want to attack someone. Has no smell.

Red, which is fire and explosives, can be made into a liquid or a jelly. It is highly flammable. And if condensed, it is explosive. It is incredibly stick, so it can be used as an effective foundation laying tool. Smells like coal.

Orange is semi-unstable, and kind of flammable, but not nearly as powerful as red. Orange is mainly used to defensive type magic, shields, armor coating, and is the main substitute for metal, at least in the sense of weaponry. Smells like citrus.

Yellow is very unstable and is only a liquid. When exposed to white light, it tends to re-enter the spectrum with a blinding flash. If combined with other colors...it can be very effective. Smells like morning dew.

Green is the universal construction magic. You can use it to build just about anything really. Its the most stable. Its hard to impliment into combat but its do-able. Green is wild, unpredictable, and tends to affect the mind of whoever uses it. Makes them feel chaotic. Smells like pine.

Blue is the most solid of them all. It has its uses in all fields, like a jack of all trades. It is also the main component for armor, usually combined with green. Smells like chalk.

Superviolet is invisible but solid, unlike sub-red which is the only color not able to be crafted into luxin. Being invisible, it can be used in a lot of ways. Smells like rain.

All colors, aside from sub-red, can be crafted into an either solid, liquid, or jelly like state called luxin. Depending on the color, it can be either really soft, or incredibly hard or anywhere in between. This applies to longevity, stability, and texture as well.

There are differentiating stages of power with all the colors. Most mages, or luxiants, are monochromes, meaning they can only use one color. Then their are bichromes, uncommon but not unseen. They can use two colors. Then, finally, there are polychromes. They can use three, and in cases of extreme rarity, four colors. If anyone chooses to be a polychrome, you must tell me before hand. You have to be able to see the colors you can cast, so most mages where spectacles with colored lenses. They don't work as well as the real color, but its better than nothing.

Then, there are the color wights. When light is abused and used to such an extreme, Anitia sometimes chooses to curse her ungrateful children. She shatters the halo of color in their eyes and makes it so that they can only see the color they are most skilled with. This grants them with an extreme amount of power. But at a price. Their sanity, and their bodies slowly decay, and the speed of this deterioration increases overtime. They are mistrusted, hated, sometimes hunted, and viewed as less than human.

Stella Minro??a blinked. She reached out, Meredella chirping to guide her, and grabbed the jug and the cup, "Thank you." Carefully, she started putting water inside the cup. The water overflowed, but she did not noticed until it started dripping on her thighs. She was startled, and her jump made her drop the jug on the table, spilling the water. She blushed madly, "I-I'm sorry! I didn't mean to!" Greylan nuzzled her knee to tell her to not be concerned.

Dazen Phyrex worked himself to a sweat, wishing he wasn't wearing his fine clothes from the Prism's Tower under his robes. It made his arms itch like crazy now that he was really sweating. But he wouldn't stop. He had to prove he was good enough for something so simple. He pulled the stakes out from the fire and smashed them rapidly until they were as flat as the Master had shown and then cooled them. After placing them back in the fire, he began to clean his station, waiting for the smith to tell him when to take them out again. He was soaked, sore, and tired after only ten minutes but he knew that he needed this...

Sufferance Tural made sure Stella had grip on the jar and cup before letting go...And then she realized maybe she should've asked if the woman needed her to pour it...She quickly righted the jar and set it to the side, moving quickly to get a towel from the back. "It's alright, miss!" she called back, grabbing two and running back quickly. She laid one of the woman's lap before sopping up what had spilled on the table and floor. "I know you didn't. Don't worry, I'll clean it up. Just dry yourself off and enjoy the water, alright?" She smiled and placed the wet towel on the counter. At least this work wasn't boring...

Stella Minro??a blushed again as the towel was placed upon her lap. She managed to grab it and started drying herself off, "I'm sorry..." she whispered. She felt talons gently land on her shoulder and feathers rub against her face. She stroked Meredella, and cleared her throat, "I-I will pay for it..." She sipped her water and pulled her head down, her blind eyes staring at her lap as she unconsciously dried it... "I have the money for more than one glass, and it seems as it is..."

Dazen Phyrex continued to work, his arms deadened now. That actually made it easier, in an odd way. He was on his second set of planks now, and he noticed the smith raising a brow at him. Maybe he was impressed. Then a bucket slammed into his chest again. Then another. All the buckets from all the other apprentices and the master himself. "More water. Now. Go. Hurry back." There was a growl to his voice that sent the timid young man bolting.

Sufferance Tural laughed quietly and shook her head. "It's alright, no worries," she stated, taking the jug to put it behind the counter. This woman didn't mean to...She sighed softly and pulled out a few of her own coins and placed them with the jar before she forgot. "Don't worry about it, miss. You just pay for that much and we'll be even, alright?" She moved back to the woman, still smiling, as useless as the action might be.

Dazen Phyrex dunked his head in the water as soon as he got there, coming back up very short of breath but feeling a million times better. Soon, he was absent mindly filling the buckets, not aware that he was being watched...He thought he heard a click but thought nothing of it...However, on the other side of the river, someone was loading up a crossbow, the orange coating of luxin hiding all but the glint of the crossbow bolt...

Moreshin stormed into the store. The broad shouldered man was easily close to seven feet tall, and his eyes had the halos of a yellow luxiant. However, more surprsing, was the massive blade strapped across his back. He was attired in blood red leather boots and what looked to be shimmering armor made entirely of orange and blue luxin. His hair was cute in a crew, but it was obvious that he was a blond, and his face and bare arms were riddled with scars....He seemed to just exude danger. He eyed the customers and staff, as if waiting for service.

Inaoro Shadows 's eyes narrowed as he shifted his spectrum into his bow and arrow and took aim at the mysterious guy. He let the arrow fly and hit his target. "Dazen! Get over here now!" he said, running up to the boy and pushing him down on the ground. "Are you an idiot? Leaving yourself in the open like that? You of all people should know who is after you!" He groaned as he drug Dazen to an area covered with leafy green bushes. "Why oh why, out of all people, did I get stuck watching over you!?" he nearly screamed, but kept his voice low as he surveyed the area, checking for other threats. "They were bound to have back up." he said to himself. Not seeing anybody else he turned to Dazen. "Not hurt are you?" he asked coldly.

Sufferance Tural carefully slipped the wet towel off of the young woman's lap now that she was done with it and placed it with the other...But then the door opened and she definitely didn't feel right. She turned slowly, folding her hands in front of her and pasting that perky smile on her face quickly. "Hello, sir..." She faltered for a moment...Yellow halos...Another mage?! With just a second, she was back to her store-tending, perky self. "How may I help you today?" she asked with a slight bow, now hiding her eyes. She didn't like the feel of this person...

Stella Minro??a heard the door crash open, very loud and clear. She whimpered, and heard Greylan growl, Meredella chirping nervously once in a while... She tried to make herself as small as possible, pulling her knees towards her chest and reaching for the hidden dagger inside her shoe...

Moreshin glared at Sufferance and began to probe the inner pockets of his cloak. "I require water. And possibly a whet stone. I need the both, now." Suddenly his eyes shifted, and the inner ring was a dark blue. Was he possibly an equally balanced bichrome. "I did not stutter, fetch me what I ask for girl!" He hated being in this shit hole of a town, but he and his men had his orders. That shifty Wight messenger had delivered quite a sum of money for this job. He found his sketching. It was of the young man from earlier, the one with the timid eyes. "I must also find this...boy." The tone of his voice and the way he carried himself suggested that when Moreshin was looking for someone, it wasn't a good sign.

Sufferance Tural had hesitated for a moment, not straightening from her bow...But that voice demanded compliance, she could tell. She moved quickly and grabbed a jar of water from the shelves and placed it on the counter. Another few steps and she had moved a small whet stone to the counter as well. His eyes...had changed...Wait...She looked up at the sketch and blinked a few times. He...had been the first of the new mages in town. Was he why they were suddenly congregating? He had seemed shy and weak...Damnit, she hated decisions. "I've seen him. I have no clue where he is now, though," she stated quietly. She almost didn't want to ask for the payment...

Stella Minro??a only listened. The man seemed dangerous, she could tell by the tone of his voice. Greylan and Meredella still wouldn't stop growling or nervously chirping. Stella trusted them, and she would always listen to them. She whimpered slightly, tightening her grip on the dagger.

Dazen Phyrex couldn't tell what was going on. One minute, he had been at peace, in the silent stillness of the wasteland border, cooling himself when suddenly chaos erupted around him. He saw the arrow hit what he had thought to be a small dune. As soon as it had though, he felt himself being pulled back, and knew he was being yelled at, but he couldn't much hear what his savior was saying, with dozens of crossbow bolts whizzing around them. As soon as he was 'safe' he stuttered when he saw it was the young boy from before! He couldn't answer a single question but began to draw on as much red as he could...

Moreshin began to sharpen his blade right there in the store, leaning against the wall. "Well you best remember. I don't have much time and I need to find him fast. Which way did he go? Was anyone with him?" There was a deadly steel in his voice as he glared at the silent, scrunched up girl in the corner. "Shut 'em beast up before I make myself some lunch."

"Get a hold of yourself! And you call yourself his son." he said shooting more arrows around them. "Shit, where are all these coming from?" he whispered to himself trying to look for the assailants.

Sufferance Tural flinched slightly at the action and stepped back a bit. This person was definitely not good news...She wanted him to leave...but she didn't want to be the one to blame for conflict happening between these mages...It wouldn't hurt either of them if she gave inaccurate directions. "He seemed to be alone. He went back towards the houses," she lied without twitching. She moved to cover the young customer from this man's view, almost protectively. "And please don't threaten the customer's or their animals, please and thank you." She was still smiling, still perky. She was good at hiding things.

Moreshin gave her a look over before standing straight and re-clipping his sword to his back. "Wily wench...Its a shame we didn't find either of you in the waste. Ya'd catch a nice sum..." He looked back at them one last time before opening the door, slamming it with such force that it came off one of its hinged. He gave a look back in the window as one of his men ran up to him. "If we can't find him...burn the town. Kill them all for hiding him."

Inaoro Shadows quickly layed Dazen down. "Shit." He tore off some of his shirt and quickly ran to the river and got the fabric wet before running back to the cover of the shurbs and pulled out the arrow. "This might sting, but don't worry, it's just a small flesh wound." he said wrapping the fabric around the wound. He then searched his pockets and found a small piece of flint that he used to make a small camp fire a few nights before. "Will this work?" he asked, hoping the wimp wouldn't pass out from a small flesh wound.

She didn't think the woman would mind. She couldn't see anyways, right..."The nerve..." she mumbled quietly. "I think I'm already rooting for the other one..." she decided to herself before moving to the woman. "Sorry about him, miss. Look...If anyone gives you any trouble, my name is Sufferance. I move around this town, but I can help you if you need it while you're here," she offered.
