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 pulled Sufferance with her... then she heard a whistle and felt pulled herself, "Hey! Let us go!" She didn't have a choice to follow though... She let herself get pulled and ended up in a cooler place, probably in a shaded alleyway. Meredella and Greylan hadn't growled or chirped in warning, so she assumed that whoever had pulled her and Sufferance here were to be trusted... She was still holding her new friend's hand, so she was slightly relieved.

Dazen Phyrex let out a sharp growl. "I was trying to help them! Stop trying to boss you around you asshole!" He was really losing his temper, but using green had calmed him down a little bit. "And for your information..." He regarded the girl from earlier, glad the light of the fire hid his blush. "T-the town is under attack. They want someone...I think its me. They are killing everyone who runs out of town. I saw..." He gulped. "A family ran out the north gate...all of them shot down with arrows..." He looked back to the boy and narrowed his eyes. "The river...we take the river out. Get to the Golden Waste. Father told me about a safe house there...."

Inaoro Shadows nodded and set up the ranks. Inaoro himself was infront of the group. He put Stella at his left flank, Sufferance at his right, and Dazen directly behind him. "Then we head to the river. And if you want to keep that head of yours on your shoulders, you might want to listen to me. I was raised by mercenaries, maybe it will connect in your brain that I know what I'm talking about." he said moving through the crowds slowly, blending them all into the shadows. "Now, while we are traveling, you all are going to have to be quiet and listen to me. These guys are obviously dangerous and they will kill you. Especially you Dazen, since you are their target." he said in a low whisper still blending in with the shadows.

Sufferance Tural couldn't help but glare as Inaoro as her grip on Stella was broken due to his positioning. Yeah, he better know what he's doing...Otherwise, she'd have to knock sense into him...Crap! Her bag...She'd left it in the shop. Well, there went any hope of defense from her end. She berated herself quietly before moving in imitation of Inaoro. "They are, darling. I got to see a nice sketch of you. There's a bichrome mage after you. Yellow and blue, if I remember correctly. Just so you two know what you're against," she mumbled. She winced slightly, thinking of any of the families that could've been struck down. One she knew...? She shook her head and prepared herself. She'd get through this. And they would, too, if she had any say in the matter.

Stella Minro??a stayed silent the whole way... She didn't feel as safe now that she wasn't holding her friend's hand anymore, but she still had Greylan and Meredella. She heard them talk about colours, as she felt the temperature rise and lower as they moved from shadow to shadow... She could still smell the smoke and feel the heat and roar of the fire, but she couldn't stop thinking about those colours... How she wished she could see them, even if they were dangerous... She let a silent tear fall down her cheek and followed ahead...

Dazen Phyrex had to obey this time around. He knew, as he calmed down, that this kid was more suited to this kinda thing then he was. He hadn't seen anyone near the river before, hopefully it was still pretty desolate. Hopefully. He turned to the shop girl and tried to give a smile. It turned into a nervous, half-smile. "I...Thanks...I'm so sorry....I didn't want to come here. Go anywhere...I knew I'd get people hurt. Wrapped up in this." He hated himself now more than ever....

Inaoro Shadows sighed. They were almost there, hopefully they would remain unseen.... "Kid, people will like you better if you don't constantly apologize. I'm going to teach you how to grow a backbone if it kills you kid." yes, Inaoro knew he was younger than Dazen, but what did he care, he definitely acted like the adult of the group. He tapped Stella's shoulder. "Hey, don't cry. Hold on to my shoulder. I promise nothing is going to happen to any of you." he said softly, trying to ease the girls fear. Last thing he needed was a mental breakdown in the group, that would surely get them killed.

Sufferance Tural raised a brow pointedly at Inaoro's scolding. He...certainly seemed determined? Not the most likable of the group...But not the worst, either. She smiled back kindly at the other boy. "Don't apologize to me, darling. You can't help it, I don't think. We'll just have to find you somewhere else to hide, yes? And I'd like to hear the story behind this 'hunt' if you don't mind..." she stated quietly. "Don't worry, Stella. Everything'll be alright," she added, giving another smile, though it would do nothing except maybe leak into her voice.

Stella Minro??a nodded quickly, grabbing Greylan's scruff... She prefered the wolf over the boy she didn't really know... She knew they were trying to comfort her, but it wasn't really helping. She sighed as she continued to follow.

Dazen Phyrex finally stumbled ahead of the brat, tripping over something...large and black. Charred. He shoved it out of his mind as he saw the river...And a man leaning on the blacksmith's lounge, drawing a massive blade out of the spine of the smithmaster. He was blond, cloaked much like the town's attackers, his eyes...wait...His eyes! They weren't halo'd! They were broken. "A-...A wight..."
