Description

Suzuki Rhodes

Image

Name: Suzuki Rhodes

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Appearance: Suzuki is 5 ft. 3 in. tall and 120 lbs. She wears an all white rain coat where ever she goes and carries an umbrella. Underneath she wears her school's uniform. Along with the shoes that go with it. Her eyes black and her hair dark brown. Despite her past she always wears a smile even if she isn't happy. She is of Asian American ethnicity.

Role: White Magician

Partner: Satosha Quinton

Ability/Magic Specialty: Automancy

Automancy- The ability to control motorized vehicles.

Special Attacks: "Assault Car", "Car Control"

Suzuki's family car has secretly been souped up by her magical abilities to include the essential gear such for any war against black magicians. Its arsenal includes a snow plow, smoke bombs, rocket boosters, rocket launchers, a durable steel frame, and an auto pilot function. When she is in need of assistance she can use her magic to call her car from a nearby location.

Car Control: Using her powers she can take control of someone's car other than her own and drive it around by point in the direct she'd like the car to go.

Personality: On the outside Suzuki looks like a friendly person, but she's really not, at least not as much as she used to be. Thanks to her father's death she's become more reclusive and does not regularly let people come to her home. Although she works hard and pretends that nothing ever happened to her last year she is frequently seen clinging to her coat. She's someone who's also become extremely interested in reading when she was not before. This is because she is looking for what her father meant by the words "black mage" she has come to figure out that its a wizard of some sort, but then why would he utter that as his final parting words she wondered. Wizards don't exist, or maybe they do, she isn't sure what to think about this but is more likely to believe maybe they're some kind of group of assassins or something sent to kill her father and maybe her. Thanks to these thoughts she is deeply driven towards finding the truth. Her mother has been worried about her strange elusiveness and has tried to get her counseling, but she refuses to go insisting that she is fine.

Bio: Suzuki used to live a normal life up until the last year before the start of many changes. She was moving to a new home and school and was looking forward to it. However, she ended up in a tragic situation when her father and her crashed in a car accident one night, rainy night. They were going out to meet some of the locals of the neighborhood at a block party. She managed to survive but he didn't. Upon investigating it the police assumed it was a normal accident because the roads were slick and were not as well lit as they were supposed to. Her mother, the remaining member of her immediate family took her in and continued with her father's wishes of attending school in the new local that they were in (the area of Nerris City).

She felt very distant though from all that happened around and refused to believe that the accident was normal. Her father had never had trouble trouble driving on rainy nights and as he lay dying he kept muttering crazy things like, "There's a black mage, so stay out of sight." She did not know what he meant, but she hid behind a battered car door and let her father bleed out since she couldn't do a thing for him. The only thing that comforted her was the fact that she was wearing a coat he had given her as a present for her birthday. To this day she keeps her distance from people and hopes to find out what he meant by black mage. She has yet to activate her powers, but is willing to find out what he meant by his final words.

So begins...

OOC Notes

Suzuki Rhodes stood outside the front door of the school watching Satosha defeat the bullies that had come to their school she thought that he was a blessing to the school because for some reason delinquents were drawn to this school. She wasn't sure if it was because of him or something else, but she knew that without him they were sure to run rampant, even with the teach supervision. She cupped her hands to her mouth and wanted to call out to him, "Hey, do you want demerits! You'd better hurry or else you may be late!" But she wasn't that type of girl.

She didn't know Satosha on a personal level, but felt he a similar vibe from him that matched her own, a vibe that expressed some form of loneliness. For that reason she watched him from afar and made sure he kept out of trouble. She turned and grabbed the handle to the front door, hearing the bell ring above her head she opened it and walked inside to quickly find her class room.

Wandering the halls she pulled out a map in her back pack circled in red ink which had an arrow pointing to a room on the map with the words, "Home Room" above it. Suzuki figured she needed to go there. As she passed by some students she got a few odd glances for wearing a rain coat on a sunny day. She ignored them though and continued to look for her home room without putting her stuff away in her locker. It was probably too late to do that and make it to home room on time.

Suzuki peeked into Vlad and Klaus's classroom before seeing that the teacher had her eyes on her. "You're late... Ms. Rhodes go and sit down at your seat." the teacher growled.

It was clear she had not had her morning coffee and was not happy with her students. That's what Suzuki thought as she stepped into the class room and headed for her seat at the back of the room. A lot of people were in the classroom already as she looked around, including Klaus and some new looking, odd guy.

Once she got there she sat down and began to pull out her books for the class she was now in. She did not look at Klaus or Vlad, who apparently had stood out before, but focused her attention to the front of the board. Her teacher was turned around, and writing on the board when a note passed under Suzuki's desk. She quickly grabbed it and unfolded it, "Stay away from the new kid," it read. She took a pencil from her bag and scribbled onto it. "Don't send me any more notes..." before passing it back in the direction it had come from. Suzuki looked back to the board and was glad to see the teacher had not noticed the note being passed around.

While Klaus told his story Suzuki put her pencil down and quickly answered Klaus with, "That's a terrible story, Klaus, I feel really bad for you." Then she pointed to Vlad and said to him, "...yet for some reason I thought you were the new person in class, Vlad. I am almost sure I have seen Klaus before here in this classroom." she joked, "And Vlad's strange style of clothing always seems new to me, but you know how I like to wear the same thing every day by now. I'm sure you'll both find strong friendships here though at the school."

Suzuki grabbed the hood of her jacket and pulled it over her head, "I'm done talking now, so I suppose that's that." She always felt it best to "help" incorporate the students in the classroom and push them towards getting to know other. This would keep them from interacting with her if they were more focused on being other people's friends. She didn't want people getting too close to her after what had occurred in her life. It was quite risky and the "Black Mage" group she felt could still me out there somewhere ready to kill her or anyone else she associated with.

Suzuki sat in the classroom minding her own business as her teacher continued to search for the files that she needed. She hardly knew of the destruction that was to come before it suddenly ripped through the building.

Suzuki Rhodes

Suzuki woke up with a splitting head ache and pain shooting through her left rib cage. She grabbed it with her right arm and could feel that they were broken. She removed her hand and blood dripped down the bottom of her rain coat and onto her pants. She remembered she was on the second floor of her homeroom and looked around. There was dust and dirt everywhere. The entire room had suddenly "exploded" and yet she appeared to be the only one alive, if not conscious. She dragged herself to her the back walk of the room was past her old desk which has now a mangled heap of metal and shouted into the open sky.

"Hey is anyone done there? I'm stuck up here and can't get down. I'm injured too and I don't know-" she stopped and looked back at the room that lay behind her. How was she going to help anyone here at all? She had barely moved herself to the wall once and now felt like she had no energy left in her.

"Whoever did this..." she told herself, "Whether it be the Black Mages or not. They won't get away with this."

Nicholas Edwards

Nicholas, who had been watching his master work his black magic, answered, "Must we meet up with these so-called other Black Mages? I find it far more interesting to work with you on the city streets than a bunch of strangers sir." Nicholas curled his lips frowned. He had not liked the idea of going to work for other wizards, so he felt it was best to voice his opinion right now on the matter.

"I suppose that working with them is fine though as long as it ultimately helps you." He quickly added before walking over to the edge of the ledge the girl jumped off. He was used to watching his master kill people on whim and barely made out a crumpled body on the sidewalk twenty feet below. Nicholas glanced at his master and unsheathed his twin daos, "Should I make the girl's death look like the usual type of incident?" he asked coldly.

Nicholas was famous, thanks to his spell link powers, for having helped create an untraceable phantom killer who mutilated bodies and then left them frozen on the sidewalk for the police to find. He was able to make this legend a success no thanks to Master Hal who brainwashed his victims before death. It was something neither would ever have to confess to because their killing methods were beholden to magic.

Suzuki Rhodes

Suzuki was surprised to find herself escaping a collapsing building with such a strange looking man one minute she was in the worst condition in her life and the next she had some hope she would live thanks to his mere presence. When he asked "Are you okay mage girl?" all she had felt she knew about her life collapsed.

Tears began to stream down her and she said, "Why did this happen, I've just been trying to live my life a easily as possibly and now- now something I can't even understand and have never understood is ruining my life. I'm not a mage girl, so whatever makes you think I am just go away. Go away!"

Suzuki snapped and banged her fists against Satosha's chest. "I don't want you around. You ruined my life father!" Her fury towards Satosha and this haunting specter she realized that Satosha was somehow connected to the Black Mages.

Suzuki breathed in heavily and exhaled. "I don't know who did this... I'm seriously an innocent bystander here. I don't know how you can sense magic or whatever it is you think you can do, but I can tell you that I'm not exactly involved in this."

Suzuki quickly looked down at the ground and added, "I'm not a mage and I'll deny it with my dying breath because I believe an assassin's guild by the name "Black Mage" or a single individual killed someone I know."

She looked up at Satosha with a defiant glare and said, "You may have been in the same school as me, but it doesn't mean I have to tell you anymore than this since I barely know you." Suddenly she felt more pain throb through her rib cage and grabbed it with her hand in an attempt to stop the blood flow again, "Your accusations have really ticked me off, but at least I know you're a life saver, so if you would be kind enough to help me out here I'd be very grateful."

"Satosha, what's wrong..." Suzuki whispered as she limped behind him on their way to the hospital.

She could see that Satosha was staring at a group to across the street. "That's two people from my class I think," she voiced to him as she put her hand on his shoulder and continued running when Satosha picked up speed by using Satosha as one would use an arm rest. "I walked into the classroom when they were talking and making arguments against people at school. They're not very nice, so I think we should-"

Before she could say a word. Nicholas turned around and faced her and Satosha, having sensed her energy as well as his. He voiced, "I hate to break this to you all you wonderful plotting Black Mage friends of mine, but those two might overhear us and want to stop us." He pointed to where Satosha and Suzuki were and clearly saw they were running away.

"We better chase them down," he warned.

Klaus tensed up as he sensed the presence as well. He turned around, along with Vlad. "Oh. Look. Apparently Satosha and Suzuki are magic users then, considering you sensed them, right?" He asked. "Correct." Klaus replied. "Oh well. You know what to do, right?" Vlad sighed with a chuckle. "Right." Klaus said to him as he transformed into weapon mode and Vlad grabbed him.

"You know, you never did show me your ability, Klaus." he said slyly. "Right. Swing. I know how to stop them." Klaus replied, as he began to glow an aura that was the same color as the one he uses during his transformation. Black with sparks and wisps of orange, yellow, red and purple. Vlad swung him, and as he did, a giant crescent moon shaped projectile of energy crashed into the building next to Satosha and Suzuki, causing a couple big explosions, the ruble blocking their escape route. "Nice!" Vlad laughed. "What was that?" "I call it Negierung Puls, or Negation Pulse, in English." Klaus replied. "That's not all it can do."

Vlad jumped towards them, laughing and teleporting every couple seconds. He looked into an ally, and he thought he saw two girls, one with purple hair and one a brunette. He grinned at them and saluted with two fingers as he looked forward again, pursuing Satosha and Suzuki. He appeared in front of them via puff of smoke made out of dark energy, because of the teleportation. "Well, this is a surprise. It's a shame we're kinda enemies now." He chuckled. Klaus transformed. "Yes. My apologies." He said.

"I honestly wasn't surprised that you were a magic user, Satosha. But Suzuki? That's interesting. Oh, by the way, I meant to thank you for what you said about us. Even if we are outcasts. But que serah, serah, right?" Vlad chuckled.

OOC Notes

Aurelie had bitten back a retort at Miraze's words. Miraze might not like draining her magic, but Aurelie sure as hell didn't like seeing Miraze coughing up blood. There was no time to argue, though, not as the shadows lengthened and then pulled around the pair. They were shielded from gaze, but talk would draw attention to themselves and make keeping the shadows together more difficult.

Instead, she'd scanned the four up ahead, weighing them up. A handsome, even debonair young man with perhaps just a hint of arrogance in his smile. Next to him, a man who was obviously his Spell-link. Now he flagged up in her mind as a serious threat, with a pair of daos clearly visible and an attitude suggesting a serious bodyguard. Next to them, a duo that she instantly termed 'the punk and his psychopath'. Not subtle... his albino look contrasted with his Spell-link's Edward Scissorhands style. What with the pallor and the stitching, he looked... well, he had beaten eyes, but there was definitely crazy in them.

The punk had used his powers to disintegrate the corpse. That meant that it was presumably the other Mage who was the mind-mage. He looked it too, practically oozing charm. It grated on her, especially knowing what he was capable of.

A lie.

Well, she'd keep observing them for now. She retrieved her smartphone, intending to look like she was some harmless kid idling to a casual observer. Of course, a casual observer would have to be capable of penetrating the veils around them, but it never hurt to be careful. She lifted her eyes to see them accosting a couple of people. She narrowed her eyes, trying to make them out as clearly as possible. A pretty Asian girl, and a dark-haired guy that she mentally labelled as another punk. Maybe a decent guy, though, seeing that she looked hurt and he seemed to be looking after her. Or were they Mage and Spell-link?

Even as she had that thought, the punk asked his Spell-link if he'd sensed them. Settled, then. Moments later she nearly jumped out of her skin as the crazy guy transformed into a scythe - now that was unusual in itself - and then the massive explosion erupted. She watched carefully as the albino punk started popping in and out of existence, reappearing all over the place. Now that would be hard to factor into a fight. She considered several potential moves against him in her head. It was at that moment that he seemed to notice them, offering a sardonic salute before haring off after the other two. She guessed that he hadn't fully penetrated the illusion and that he'd just seen them as a couple of shocked-looking girls.

Then she realised that the rubble he'd brought down had taken down their escape route. She felt anxiety building. On the one hand, these guys had identified themselves as Black Mages, so technically she was on their side. On the other hand, those guys looked less card-carrying-Evil crazy. They were also in big trouble. Her more calculating mind, developed through her months of working with Miraze, told her to stay put and watch. If the girl had any sense she would use whatever power she had to escape, and then they'd have information on them both. On the other hand, this was a fight that threatened to be four against two with no easy escape route. At least it looked like this guy intended to toy with them for a bit first.

She looked to Miraze for confirmation.

Satosha stopped immediately as the rubble collapsed before him. He grunted as he knew they had been found out. Looking at the boy in front of him, he recognized him as Vladmir Scythis, a student in his class. As for the others, he couldn't recognize them. However, it didn't take a genius to see they weren't here to be friendly.

"Magic user? I'm afraid you lost me. I'm just a normal guy, forced to witness as you bastards try to end the world. I don't know if your after Suzuki here or what, but I need you to get the hell out of my way!" He eyed up Vladmir. From what he saw, he had magic powers, as well as a scythe as a weapon, a bad combination for a regular guy like himself. Satosha sighed to himself. "Well, if you are after her, I suppose I could just leave her here for you...Its not like I have any reason to interfere with you damn mages." He paused for a moment, then grinned as he threw off his ripped, tattered shirt. "But, she is just a girl, and that wouldn't be very gentlemanly." He looked over his shoulder to her. "Hey you, get the hell out of here. I highly doubt I can hold them off for long, but if you're lucky perhaps you can get to safety." He held is fists up, readying a combat stance. 'Damn, looks like this is it for me. What a crappy day. Oh well, I should have known something like this would happen sooner or later.' Satosha put on a calm smile.

"Come on, you mage bastards."

Miraze frowned, regarding the four figures before them contemplatively.
It was already confirmed that they were all Black Mages, and it was at times like these that Miraze regretted being one. Alliances were really not her type.

Cursing herself for ever coming back to Nerris ( who knew it would have changed this much? ) and the White Mages for being so adamant on revealing magic to the world ( Wouldn't that go down well? Especially looking at how everyone different, whether beneficial or not, was labelled as an abomination and hunted down in this world. Miraze thought sarcastically ), she focused on the people.

The two pairs of Black Mages seemed to be completely opposite of one another. The dark-haired Mage with the white-haired Spell-Link looked suaver, smoother and more experienced. He was probably also the one with the mind magic, seeing as how the other Mage ( who was white-haired and had a dark-haired Spell-Link, she noted with some amusement - unwarrented, given the situation. ) was the one who had arrived later on and had annihilated the corpse.

Her eyes widened a little bit as the dark-haired Spell Link transformed into a Scythe. How unusual and interesting at the same time. This was her first encounter with Mages this powerful. Suddenly she found herself not wishing she was against these guys anymore.

It would have been nice if she could have just stayed outside this stupid war, though.

The 'Oh - God - He - Can - Transform - Into - A - Scythe' Guy suddenly looked their way and threw them a salute.
She could already tell he hadn't seen through the whole illusion, which was problematic in itself since these people didn't seem to be the ones to simply erase the memories of any random bystanders and be done with it. They would probably kill them in the goriest, most demeaning way possible. Case in point : the random girl who was made to commit suicide. Mond control was one of the only forms of magic Miraze would never, ever use, even though she had something rather similar to it.

Even though they could always throw off the illusion, Miraze really, really didn't want to be dragged into anything with such 'psychopaths'.

Wasn't there a saying that went something like "With friends like this, who needs enemies?"
Miraze found it strangely fitting, even though they weren't her friends. Not even allies, even though they fought for the same aim. They didn't exactly look reliable enough.

Sighing, she considered dropping the illusion of rendering them invisible and only keeping that of cloaking their energies, but it would be even more suspicious if the others suddenly looked at a previously blank s[ot and found two supposedly human girls had popped up there. Not to mention the risk of the whole 'Hey look somebody saw us lets gut them as well for the heck of it' they would be running.

And it doesn't seem like we can escape ... she thought, eyeing the rubble blocking their escape route.

"Come on, you mage bastards."
She glanced at the boy challenging the scythe duo, mentally applauding his courage and the fact he was ready to take on Mages even though he clearly knew what they were capable of in his state, before kicking herself.

You're sympathizing with somebody who is probably better off eliminated. the voice she had labelled as 'Observer' noted distantly, leading Miraze to thin her mouth, annoyed at still feeling useless things for others. Even if she didn't actually have a strict sense of Right or Wrong, this just looked unfair.

Miraze noticed Aurelie's questioning look and sighed, her way of saying "Do what you want to."

"I'm not about to get the hell out of her Satosha! They're going to chop you up and then me next!" Suzuki stated as she watched Vlad teleport in front of them with Klaus's scythe like form in hand. She felt a crescent wave of energy rush past and Satosha and destroy a nearby building.

"I don't suppose there's a way we can talk this out is there?" she spoke concernedly to Vlad and Klaus. ""If only I could help out somehow..."" she thought to herself.

Nearby Nicholas waited for his masters orders before deciding to do anything with the two intruders, actually four. Klaus and Vlad had noted someone else and he looked in the direction they had and noticed oddly placed shadows across the street. There was another group of mages here.

"Lord Zador this really has turned into a street brawl between the two magic groups, or maybe just one group and some bystanders. I'd like to see what the people in the shadows over there are doing here." He pointed towards Miraze and Aurelie clearly pinpointing where they were.

Aurelie sighed inwardly. The bodyguard was sharp, she had to give him that. Maybe next time Miraze would use her power to make sure they were cloaked thoroughly.

Well, she had no interest in sticking around. The Black Mages sure as hell didn't need them to even the odds, and she deplored the idea of an allegiance with them, at least not yet. The White Mages... well, either they would survive, or they would die. If they survived, they wouldn't identify her and Miraze with the Black Mages. So a win-win situation, really.

Still, she certainly could try to even the odds. It would be tricky though...

*


In the moment of distraction, as everyone's attention went towards the alley for an instant, Satosha found himself feeling oddly light-headed. Suddenly it seemed to him like he had his back against the rubble, and the guy with the scythe was looking furious as he teleported around and around, trying to get behind Satosha. Then scythe-guy aimed his scythe at Satosha, a pulse beginning to form that would blast him. Satosha realised, and lunging forward inside the reach of the scythe he went to grab -


*


There. Breaking through even for an instant against a man with innate resistance was ridiculously hard, but it might help him. The momentary disorientation he would have from the dream-sending was worth it. Of course, now her head was spinning.

Still, Miraze's illusion hadn't actually broken. She would have liked to have stuck around, but it would have gotten them nothing they wanted. Instead she stepped forward slightly and spoke, her mouth like the smile of the Cheshire Cat in the gloom that still obscured them both. "Oh, don't worry about us. Us girls always enjoy... checking out the talent, you know? Now unless I'm much mistaken... it looks like you've got this one covered."

Now to make like a tree and leave. The alley behind wasn't a complete dead end - there was a wooden fence but nothing insurmountable. Dragging Miraze back into the deeper shadows of the alleyway, Aurelie helped boost her over it and then scrambled over herself. They would certainly run into those guys again...but better prepared, and this time Miraze might have made up her mind about what she wanted from them. Aurelie held out a hand, much more meaningfully this time. The only way to reinforce the weakened illusion and make a getaway would be if Miraze used Aurelie's power.

Hal yawned, honestly bored with the whole thing. The group was beginning to act like a bunch of children now and truth to be told? it was draining his patience pretty quick. He turned his head when he sensed Nicolas' annoyance and raised an eyebrow, listening to the man's words with mild interest.

"Lord Zador this really has turned into a street brawl between the two magic groups, or maybe just one group and some bystanders. I'd like to see what the people in the shadows over there are doing here."

Hal inclined his head and said softly, trying not to drawl to much attention to himself "...suit yourself, Nico...I still want to observe their powers a little more...after all, people did say power-playing was the most interesting thing..." He gave a small chuckle and smirked as the group seemed to ignore him. That was good. Excellent even. The more they fought with each other, the more information he could truly learn about them. How they fought. Their strengths. Their weaknesses. Their personalities...and many, many things more. After he had gained enough information about them, from the black mages to the white ones, the rest of his plan would come out quite easily and nicely. Hal's mouth twitched again liked he was trying to suppress a laugh from the ironic of how things were turning out. Oh, he had to admit. Those mages weren't the all-bark-but-no-bite kinds and they had the strengths to pack up their words if the magics he was sensing in the air were correct, of course. He just needed to be a little more patient. After the fights had ended, he would be the one who took the most advantages.

Vlad laughed at Suzuki's question. "Why are you worried? I have no reason to kill you yet. So, you're safe for now. I may be a black mage, but I'm not a one without some sort of moral code. I'll kill someone if I feel the need to. Just be sure to stay outta my way for now. In case I miss." he chuckled.
"There, Satosha. Now you don't have to worry about being all chivalrous and shit. I admire that though." He said. He lifted the scythe again, charging it. " Now, let's see what you're made o-" He began to say, but saw that Satosha collapsed. "...What?" He asked dryly, eyes widened. He looked over in the alleyway and saw silhouettes of two people. "Aha!" he exclaimed with a laugh. " Magic users..." Klaus stated. "One minute." Vlad told Satosha, who was still dazed, as he teleported into the dark alley. "Afternoon, ladies! Thanks for the help. It's always nice for a show to get participation from the audience, you know?" he chuckled with a very sly, almost snake-like grin. "Hope I didn't blow your cover and all. Enjoy." he chuckled again, walking away with his right hand up in the air, teleporting afterwards.


He teleported in front of Satosha again, who regained his senses. "Sorry, I'm back. It's always good to be a gentleman." He said, charging his scythe up again, as Satosha leaped towards it, grabbing on to it. Vladimir simply cackled. " Oh my god. You're more of an idiot than you seem!" he shouted, as the aura traveled over to him, causing another explosion.

Vlad did a backflip. He threw Klaus up in the air, who spun in circles, as Vlad bowed. "Hope you're all enjoying this." He said dryly as Klaus hit the ground, transforming back into his human form. "Oh, what a wonderful crowd we have today. A tough guy who just got dizzy for the hell of it, and two beautiful girls in the back pretending to be ninjas and such." He laughed, clapping sarcastically. Then he turned to Hal and Nicholas, surprisingly. "And of course, my two favorite people. Old Man Spell Link, who's all, back in my day, black magic was practiced by the most elite of asshol- I mean, assassins. You are all inferior when compared to my hypocritical coat of arrogance!" He taunted, looking Nicholas in the eye. "And the ever so charming Halbert Zador." he continued, looking at Hal.
"Oh well. It's been fun, but I'm bored now. I'm gonna be a loud mouthed, sarcastic, rebellious teenage bastard elsewhere. Plus, I was looking for the person who destroyed the school, anyway. Thank you for the fight, Satosha. Keep on training. Girls? Thanks for helping. Give yourselves a round of applause for me, will 'ya? Stay frosty." He chuckled, as he walked away and teleported with Klaus, who said "Auf Wiedersehen" before he left with his partner.

Renjou just stood there with a dumbstruck face glued to his face. He had witnessed some dunce head guy making a fool out of himself before but this was outrageous, unbelievable, out of question! Mages and their Spell-links had just using their magic in a public place. For God sake, public place where normal people and civilian walking around! Then as if suddenly snapped, he ran toward them while took off one of his hair pin. Reconstruction magic.

“Brethren-in-arms withdrawing for the distance of 8 sun and standing still; blue bolt, white bolt, black bolt, red bolt; sinking into the ocean together seeking redemption-”

He bit his hair pin and snapping it in two, legs still ran toward the mages direction while still spelling incantation.

“Twenty eight mansion, four symbols; dragon tail, tiger fang, turtle shell, phoenix wings-”

He stopped. One of the broken hair pin was dropped to the ground while the other part was thrown to the sky.

“Shiji no Kekkai.” (The barrier of four beasts)

Both part of the broken pin disintegrated. Its particle spread wide and made a giant transparent dome. At least inside barrier the Mages and Spell-links would not hurt any normal people. Ren looked around, damn there’s still left some people with little magic potential. They were still remained inside even though their magic was so tiny to the point almost non-existent. If only he had a Spell-link, but he was too cowardice to ask Sirsi. He was afraid she would get hurt.

“Oh well.”

He scratched his head and approached the Mages. He hoped he could stop their non sense fight with ‘talk’ even though he didn’t have Spell-link and dare he say ‘absolutely weak’.

Suzuki, unsure of what to do, continued to watch the fighting until a guy with red hair ran over to the fight and pulled out of his hair what looked like a hair pin. She saw him begin to chant and then a strange, transparent dome surrounded the area where she had been. She found herself somehow on the outside of the barrier, no thanks to what Vlad had done to move her away from the center of the fighting. Curious as to why Renjou had done this or what he had done she walked over to him hesitantly and said, "Hey, um, I hate to ask, but can you explain what's going on? A lot of civilians have been hurt over at the school I know. I was headed over to the hospital with someone from the school until we got ambushed. I don't know why, but that guy Satosha says this seems to be a fight between magicians. He also says I'm a magician too."

She waited for Renjou's answer hoping that he would give her a proper answer since he was not occupied with fighting. He looked kind of like a student from her school, so she assumed from the fact that he was around her age and no older looking than this. If he didn't have the answers she would have no idea what to do since she obviously couldn't throw herself into the fighting, and hadn't wanted to in the first place. She was glad Vlad, Klaus and the others that were trying to hurt Satosha hadn't killed either of them quite yet, but she wasn't sure how long he could hold out if magic allowed someone to chop through parts of buildings with relative ease. She went to Renjou for the simple fact that if he was a mage she'd be in better hands with him in terms of receiving protection and learning a concept she knew little about within a few minutes.

Nicholas felt Renjou's transparent barrier come up around them and thought, "On second thought, I'm not going to chase the people that I was going to. I can't chase them now with this barrier up." Nicholas looked across the battlefield trying to figure out who erected it and saw Renjou on the outside of it. He could clearly feel from where he was standing that Renjou was weak, but extremely smart. Generally, Nicholas liked to work in the shadows, but because of how Vlad and Klaus seemed to approach their work it that this would be impossible now.

"Hey kid!" he cried out in Renjou's direction, "Thanks for keeping us contained I don't know what those two youngsters would do if they got bored with our current target. Oh wait, maybe they have..." Nicholas looked back to where the fighting had taken place and saw that Satosha seemed to be still standing where he was, but that Vlad and Klaus had left.

“Hey, um, I hate to ask, but can you explain what's going on? A lot of civilians have been hurt over at the school I know. I was headed over to the hospital with someone from the school until we got ambushed. I don't know why, but that guy Satosha says this seems to be a fight between magicians. He also says I'm a magician too.”

He blinked in surprised and then scratched his head.

“Uh, you’re a Mage?”

He eyed her from head to toe. Well, she seemed to have high magic so maybe she was Mage. He sighed.

“I explain latter for now…” He moved his gaze toward the barrier.

“Hey kid!” One of the Spell-link called him. “Thanks for keeping us contained I don’t know what those two youngsters would do if they got bored with our current target. Oh wait, maybe they have...”

A frown grazed Ren's expression for a moment before it back to its playful manner.

“You’re welcome, Ossan! But don’t worries the barrier will break after the bystander’s memory get altered which will happen in…” A loud shattered noise and the transparent barrier disappear. “A second.” He finished lamely. Damn, he was much weaker than he thought.

Still eyeing the Spell-linker he talked to the girl beside him.

“Well, I dunno what’s going on either. The reason why you got ambush… maybe because you’re a potential-Mage and her potential-Spell-link. You know-” He angled his head to general direction. “Mages have this ‘better-than-thou’ tendency and usually this cause a fight between them.” A fool one at that he mussed. “And for the last question, no, you’re not a Mage unless you perform least one spell. So, worry not, you still can get your normal live back.” Or not, he inspected the mess around them.

“Uh oh, it looks like your potential-Spell-link passed out. Wanna help him?” He mentioned toward the guy who just passed out. Without waiting for her reply he took off another hair pin and threw it to the passed out guy direction. Reconstruction magic

“Under the name of shirogane sōzokujin. I command the mask of all creation, the holder of truth and temperance, the reverser underworlds, bid under my demand, eight immortal, seven prosperity, fifty six rules.”

The hair pin was glowing and the light enveloped the passed out guy. Then its light was waning slowly and the hair pin disappeared. That should help him in a minimum degree. But, hey, it was better than nothing.

“Come on.” He told the girl and approach the passed out guy

"I suppose I should help him out," Suzuki stated as she walked slowly over to where Renjou limping all the way due to her injured rib cage. She took in everything he said as she watched him put up a barrier around Satosha. When that was done she knelt beside Satosha and turned her head towards Nicholas. He stood silently now in a spot where active magic was nowhere in sight.

"Is it safe to have that guy near us?" she whispered to Renjou taking in the glare from Nicholas's fierce eyes. Her injury began to bleed again and she knew if Nicholas did attack them she would not be able to move away from him.

Nicholas voiced, "I don't know what you're talking of because I can't hear you from here, but do know that I can easily take you down. The only thing that's stopping me is that I've been given no orders yet. You better hope my master doesn't give me any or you'll die where you stand. I don't want to sound too threatening, but when you have a boss that can do what Halbert Zador can it's not wise to disobey him. I don't think Master Zador has any plans to kill you yet, but I'll be standing here on stand by just in case."

Suzuki ignored Nicholas's warning not caring anything for it at the moment. If he attacked she was sure this new person who'd stepped in for her and Satosha could stop him. On a second glance of the red haired boy she could tell that he was certainly around her age and therefore not probably lying about being from her school. She decided to ask two questions to him and said, "If Satosha is like this how is that other person you were trying to help? If Satosha is like this is that other person you helped much worse, what about the school is it okay?"

The girl and the Spell-link were talking to him. He frowned in annoyance but quickly shook his head and instead put a grin on his face.

“Well, Ossan!” He shouted at the Spell-link. “Never knew you’re a chatter box. But I don’t give a shit whether you want to stand there all day or not. And you.” He pointed at the girl. “Stop with all of the Q&A session. Didn’t you realize among all of the Spell-links and Mages around he’s the most critical one? He has internal bleeding because of his broken rib. A little late and this Satosha guy can say goodbye to the living world.”

He took out his cell-phone and dialing the ambulance. “Beside, my magic has limit. I can’t heal everyone in sight.” He mumbled quietly.

Indeed, the amount of magic he could perform was limited because of his half–contract state with Sirsi. If only he was a little braver and asked Sirsi to be his full fledge Spell-link. He shook his head, no time for grieving that now. To cope up with it he always carried a high compressed magic in the form of his hair pins but he never wore more than four of it. Carried it too much would damage the flow of magic inside human body.

The phone was connected and he talked to them, explaining the condition plus the state of the school, yelled at them for hurrying up and brought the damn ambulances. Several time expletive words came out from his mouth before he closed the phone. He sighed and observed the wrecked state. Fool Mages and their stupid battle, and he thought the evolution supposed to clean any stupid genes. Guess they missed out a few.

"Do you mean he's the most critical one to me?" Suzuki shot back at Renjou. She did not like how he had stood her to stop with all the Q&A she and Satosha could have died, Satosha could still die and it would be her fault because she still felt she didn't have a clue what was going on. "I'll stay quiet about this since you're the magic expert but I don't like what you've just said to me." Suzuki added letting him see her nose twitch and eyes squint. She wanted him to see her anger. She put on a frown for added effect in that regard.

Then she looked down at Satosha and said, "It'll be okay, hopefully I have healing magic... You'll be healed right here and now before the hospital's ambulance's arrive and then you can tell me how to get out of this mess permanently. I don't care now about who killed my father if it's going to lead me into situations where I would possibly die." she directed this at Satosha but she was close enough to Renjou that he could still hear him.

NIcholas just stoopd there and watched. Renjou and the girl could definitely not kill him with their current abilities, at least he felt so, and they were not a threat to him or his master it seemed. Nicholas turned and looked around for his master Halbert. "Sir, I wonder if we should leave here or wait and see what this girl does." he thought to himself. The police would be coming soon with medical personal, so he needed to leave soon. A guy with swords in the middle of an alley was definitely not a good looking prospect. He could, for the heck of it, wreck the coming ambulances once they arrived and then cause Satosha to die from a lack of medical care, but that would be dishonorable and would not work in Halbert's favor. Even if managed to erase all the memories of every normal person present at this scene the hospital that sent the ambulances would wonder what happened to them and there was the fact that the girl and this white magician would defend themselves, if they could.

(Hey, when did Sirsi arrive on the scene? I don't remember here being here at the scene.)

“I’ll stay quiet about this since you're the magic expert but I don't like what you’ve just said to me.”

Ren’s grin got wider along with her frown. It was good she wasn’t a cry-baby-and-pathetic girl. She was angry. He could tell by the obvious spark of her magic and the more obvious expression she put.

“Heh. You’re interesting.” He chuckled lowly. She talked more but his attention was elsewhere.

The faint sounds of the ambulances were heard. They were still pretty far from the school but he could hear them alright. He wondered why they let a bunch of sluggo worked in the hospital. Even though normal human couldn’t hear the sound for such a distance his Psycho Kinesis power managed to enhance his senses a little. And with that he also heard the all too familiar foot steps which only belonged to the person he least expected to meet right now. Shit! Kami-sama do you hate me that much? He wailed inside his head before the foot step sound stopped right behind him.

“I assume this ‘absurd situation’ isn’t your doing, Shirogane Renjou?”

He turned really slowly and met face to face with a man around his mid sixty, looking at him in disdain under his spectacle. Renjou scratched his head and grinned stupidly. His constant way of tapping foot made Ren’s discomfort more noticeable.

“Uh…heh hehe. Fancy meeting you here, Sensei. But I swear this time I’m completely innocent.”

The man Ren addressed as ‘Sensei’ clicked his tongue and talked again with his icy cold if not biting voice.

“And the poorly done memory alteration isn’t your doing too, Shirogane? But, although destroyed, I faintly feel a familiar weak barrier had been put here.”

Ren could felt it. He was in big trouble, heck scratch that he was in giant megaloom humungous trouble. His shoulder slumped a little. A loud sigh escaped his mouth. Any excuse he put now would only make his punishment got worse. The old bat always made him do excessive training whether he was guilty or not. May as well take responsibility. Less hurt that way. He took a deep breath and bowed to the man.

“That….barrier….was my doing and the poorly-” Ren cringed a little. “-memory alteration too, Sensei. My apologize. The main branch will take care of the damage and investigate the ‘rogue people’.”

There! His money went away, fly away, good bye his precious bank account.

“Good.” His sensei nodded and averted his gaze to Suzuki girl and the fainted guy. “I’m sorry young lady I hope my apprentice didn’t cause you too much trouble.”

The man bowed a little and straightened out along with Renjou, never intending to say anymore words. He left the place with Ren following behind. But before Renjou got too far he half turned toward the girl and smirked at her.

“You know. Someday, IF you become a ‘real mage’ and we meet again maybe I’ll explain things properly to you.” But he doubted she would need that. After all, once you become a real mage, any ‘explanation’ from other mages usually only lead to traps and deception.

“Ja-ne~ Suzuki Rhodes” He waved and caught up to his sensei’s stride, hands inside his pockets.

“She’s a rare one. White mages, isn’t she? And her Spell-link too.” His sensei talked quietly to him.

“Yeah-…”

They walked away from the school ground. The gentle breeze was pursuing them and the leaves were dancing at the back. It blew Renjou’s red bangs. He took off the last two hair pins and dropped it to the ground.

“…-they are.”

They disappeared as fast as the wind.

The ending of a beginning, final line of a starting point.

Suzuki was baffled slightly as she turned her head and found Renjou talking with another magician. They didn't stay long though because Renjou quickly got scolded and was forced to walk off with this magician. Suzuki sighed as he left glad that this magician wasn't here to attack her or Renjou. She was just too focused at the moment with reviving Satosha and too shocked by the sudden Renjou's master to really think of much else to have said or done while the two magicians had still been there.

She turned back to Satosha and put her hands on his chest and pushed it, "Come on Satosha..." she stated. He didn't seem to be moving at all for the moment, but the sounds of sirens going off in the background alerted her to the coming police. "Finally someone with authority decides to show up." Suzuki looked out towards the entrance towards the alley and saw the red lights of police cars begin to light up the dim, dark space she was in.

Nicholas was still standing around when he heard the sirens leave after seeing Renjou leave with his boss and said, "Got to go. Evil waits you know!" The older man dashed into the shadows of the back alley and climbed over the fence that Aurelie and Miraze had climbed earlier, although he didn't know they had, when he landed on the other side he found Halbert waiting for him.

"You're late..." Halbert stated, "You were supposed to help me keep from being seen by people, but I had to go and do that all myself. I'd rather not have to do that again."

"I'm sorry sir, but I know that girl, and the guy, keeping them safe for the moment were quite important considering we don't know what they can do yet or where they lay in this-"

"I don't care about them. I care about Vlad Gemetzel and Vladmir Scythus. They got us into a heap of trouble just now, and they're supposed to be black mages!" Halbert let his anger show for a moment on his face as he gritted his teeth at the thought of those reckless black magicians. "Keeping out of the public eye is usually rule number one in this ongoing war we have against the white magicians and within our own ranks, but I'd never thought I'd have to meet two boys among the black magicians that openly showed off."

Nicholas crossed his arms and said, "I suppose you're right. We shouldn't care about that girl and the boy and rather should focus on those two reckless black magicians."

"No, we shouldn't focus on them either. They caused us trouble, but fighting them would cause even more trouble since we only know a little about them too. I say we just go back to the way we've been doing things and ignore the happenings of things thus far." Halbert turned around and began to walk deeper into the back alley and Nicholas followed him until they came out onto an open street and merged with the crowds. Revenge would be coming for them one day soon. They'd just have to wait and see when that day was. Being too hasty could lead to their downfall, but for now entertaining themselves on what they regularly did, which was attacking people of non-magical importance was something they needed to uphold. The regular populace was still a testing grounds for Halbert's powers after all.
