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.

Dazen Phyrex looked at the flint the younger boy held in his hand as he nursed his wound, the cold water from the river doing wonders to stifle the burn on the cut. "Y-yeah. Just...give it here." Dazen gulped between breaths. He was pretty new to this kind of pain and that was obvious, as it seemed to have taken a lot out of him. He looked over his shoulder, the men trying to wipe the sticky, flammable jelly red from their clothes to little avail, a few leaping into the river to try and wash it off. "Actually...you got a bow right? Think you can hit a rock near one of them or something? With the flint?"

Inaoro Shadows used his spectrum to materialize his bow into his hands and took the flint. "Just point to the rock." he said taking the flint and attaching it to the tip of one of his arrows as he got the bow set. "Anytime you're ready." he said, keeping both his eyes open as he took aim.

Sufferance Tural nodded at Stella and smiled. "Very pretty name. It suits you well," she stated, being friendly again after the man had left. She just had to work herself back into her perky a bit. She sighed slightly and gave a short laugh. "You did, did you? Well, it's true. That man rubbed me the wrong way. Hope that kid keeps away from him and out of trouble, honestly. So...need anything else? Your animals need anything?" she questioned kindly, smiling widely again.

Dazen Phyrex looked over his shoulder once more, pointing to a rock smack in the middle of one of the larger clusters. "There! Right there, just strike there if you can." He quickly re-ducked to avoid another passing arrow, wincing as it barely missed him. Some of the attackers weren't coated in the red sludge. "Hurry!"

Inaoro Shadows pulled the bow's string tight and then he let loose. The arrow with the flint head hit directly to the rock Dazen pointed at. He quickly ducked down as soon as he saw the sparks start. He pulled Dazen down as well and placed his arms/hands over his head to protect him from flying debris. "Well....if that didn't get rid of most of them then I don't know what will." he said out loud, not really speaking to anybody

Sufferance Tural smiled again. "It's no problem, darling." She nodded slightly and gave a smile to each animal. "They take good care of you, as well as you caring for them, right?" she questioned, noting their reactions so far. They looked like a good trio...She smiled a bit softer. "And yes...If he's smart, he'll get out of town as soon as he realizes he's being followed...But, I hope I don't get dragged into any of that. My life's had enough drama already, right?" She moved slowly back to the counter, whistling slightly.

This brought back memories, smells, sounds and touches that reminded her of her old family... the one that died, the one that she lost...

Dazen Phyrex let out a yelp when he felt the heat on his back, the concussive force almost knocking him over. He wiggled away from the boy's grip and gave a look out, gasping. Men were screaming, running around cloaked in flames. They thought to run into the water but the stick goo just reacted to the oxygen and continued to burn, maybe not as intense, but still aflame. He kept his eyes peeled to the scene, unable to look away. He was entranced, never seeing so much violence, his mind not knowing how to react.

Inaoro Shadows didn't pay any attention to the carnage and grabbed Dazen's arm and pulled him away from the scene. He ran with the boy until they landed back by the store that he followed Dazen from in the first place. "Trouble just seems to follow you doesn't it?" he almost screamed at the boy. "We have to get out of town and fast if you want to have any hope of surviving. Who knows how many of them followed us." he said pulling them into a dark ally. He stood at the opening keeping a look-out for the men that had tried to kill his charge.

Sufferance Tural blinked at the windows at the front of her store...No. She hadn't seen that. Just look away, Suffy, you didn't see anything. Nope, nothing resembling those two mages from earlier...Not a...Glimmer. Crap. "That's always nice. I miss my family sometimes, but nothing I can't get over, right?" she stated, pushing the slight nervous tone from her voice. She wouldn't let Stella know about them, no way. "How long you been together?" Now she may've just been taking to get her own mind off it...

Dazen Phyrex couldn't help but be pulled along by the boy, gasping after all the running. He was in shape but not exactly fit. "I-I...I know that! I just thought I could relax! One day!" He nearly growled. Having used all that red, he had lost a bit of his logic and was giving into his emotions, mostly fear and anger at being yelled at. He tore his arm out of Inaoro's grasp, giving a growl, the crimson halo's of his eyes shining. "I didn't ask you to watch or follow me!" He was definitely losing it...

Inaoro Shadows scoffed. "Relax? Do you even remember who your father is? How could you possibly relax when you are wanted as a dead man? Are you just that stupid?" he hissed at Dazen. "Do you think I choose this job? No. I was assigned to you. It is my job to make sure you reach your father alive and with all parts accounted for. But at this rate, you'll be dumber than a rock by the time we reach there. Or, you'll do something completely idiotic and get yourself killed. And then who will be to blame? Me. You're not the only one affected by this arrangement. Just think about that before you go running your mouth." Inaoro spat before taking his look-out post.

Sufferance Tural nodded and kept her large smile. "Ah, right, of course. Well, you all seem very content together," she stated, still keeping that voice. But...Even she could hear faint yelling coming from the side of the building...Crap, crap...No words reached her, but the tones spoke volumes. She should tell them to leave. Immediately. She didn't want to get involved, but...She didn't want something bad to happen that she could've prevented, either. "Fancy a quick walk, Stella?" she questioned. She didn't want to leave this woman alone, either...Ah, difficult decisions.

Dazen Phyrex glared red hot daggers into the blue's back, wishing he could lash out, his red temper begging him to do so. Why didn't he just attack him and get it over with? Why not strike and run far. Far far away from all these people. Just go, live alone. These people didn't really care for him. He had no friends here...But...the girl, the store girl...she'd been kind. And the smith master...rough but he showed him support. And, for a brief hour, a home...He looked around, seeing more men taking places, pulling odd, coiled vials from their pockets. Tubes full of red liquid. "Oh no..."

Then, archers outside of tower launched their first volley of flaming arrows, finding their marks...soon, fire was engulfing half of the town...

Sufferance Tural smiled and carefully took Stella's hand. "Of course. My plan all along," she stated, giving a last look over the store. The owner might not be happy she was leaving it, even if just for a little while. "I can always explain that I was helping a good customer," she mumbled aloud to herself before leading Stella to the door quickly. There was a sense of urgency to her movement. Was she letting herself panic? No, no, she had to stay level-headed. She stepped out, still trying to lead Stella. Fire. The town was on fire. "Dammit!"

Dazen Phyrex let out a gasp, just as the corner of the alleyway ahead burst into flames. He turned to look at his 'guard' and let out a growl. "Then it sucks to be you!" He raised a wall of green between them and took off out the alley, seeing the screaming villagers, those trying to flee cut down. He saw the girl from earlier, along with...a dog and a bird? And another girl. He shook his head and ran to them. "No!" He doubt he could hear them over the flames and yells of terror. They were headed for the edge of town, he had to try and stop them.

Inaoro Shadows coughed as he ran through the green smoke trying to find his charge. "You stupid asshole! Get your ass back here!" he said trying to reach him. He quickly caught up to Dazen and saw what he was trying to do. He increased his speed and grabbed Dazen's shoulder. "You dumbass! Don't go putting yourself out in the open. It's you they want." he growled as he raced inbetween the burning flames to reach the girls and animals. He let out a sharp whistle that made the dog look at him. He quickly grabbed the two girls, making the dog run at his side and had the bird following over head. He quickly got them back into the allyway where they were once hidden. "Ok, now that we are all together on this little charade, anybody got any bright ideas to get us out of here? How about we ask you Mr. I-am-trying-to-get-myself-killed.? Any 'bright' suggestions?" he asked sarcastically.

Sufferance Tural nodded and began to follow Stella's lead...Her eyes had been scanning the landscape and began to water. She quickly used her free hand to pull up her shirt slightly to cover her mouth. Suddenly, then were heading a very different direction...And suddenly, by some strange will of fate. There they were. Those two mages from earlier. And the younger seemed quite...ticked. "Covering your mouths and explaining what the hell is going on calmly might help," she stated giving a slight nod in greeting to both of them, hand still holding Stella's firmly.
