History

Once upon a time, Helyn possessed all the power in the world. She had on her person The Crystal Canary, and none could stop her. In fact, the one who tried got himself turned into a rodent! A ground hog no less!

Over the years her powers grew, and she also amassed Minions. On of them was a gargoyle by the name of Dyrmuc, another a loyal troll named Irahel. Together, the triad were going to take over Terra! They had already obliterated their main opposition years prior: Prince Gareth's Kingdom as well as he.

Unfortunately for Helyn, a certain groundhog named Gareth came back. This time, he had a woman on his arm, and all the love in the world on his side. Not even kidnapping the girl and separating the two would prove a fatal blow. She never expected what came next.

Gareth exploded into her lair on a tidal wave of hostile rodents, freeing his true love and saving the day. The canary she never laid eyes on ever, for it was destroyed, however she did make one last curse and one last vow. The lovers, upon pulling back from their kiss of triumph, would stare into each others eyes and not know who they were standing next to. If this wasn't enough, Helyn vowed to kill the two. Now she lays dormant in Verinotte Hollow, waiting for news of either to surface.





So begins...

Tell me, sweet Hoo, what do you see?
What is there lurking below thee?


The rhyme would be heard by none, lest they were an owl named Holutu. She sat, invisibly, perched on a rock, while he soared above the treetops.

She sends wind through, and grabs at the air streams, jerking them back.

Irehal grabbed at the branch, but it really didn't matter. She was pulled through the air, along with some other matter. The current was too fast for her to catch balance, despite her being a troll with special talents. Before long caught glimpse of a wicked smile, as she zoomed towards it she felt her blood rile. Would her death be in the hands of this evil?

Helyn was pleased to see the spell still worked, it had been a minute since she had last air-jerked. Smiling down on the troll in her midst, she narrowed her eyes and curled up a fist.

I see you know better than to cause your own end,
Who are you, She Beast, and why do you offend?


Holutu continued to careen through the air, although the breeze stopped, he was sent towards a tree, and through the branches was flopped.

Picking herself up from the ground, Irehal huffed a bit. Who did this woman think she was? She obviously had some sort of power. Looking the woman in the eye as she spoke, Irahel realized who exactly she was dealing with. A witch! Well, she placed her hands on her hips, I don't care who this lady is. Nobody speaks to me like that!

Offend? I was simply walking through the wood.
Ask the same of you, "She Beast", I should.



Helyn's smile grew wider, her eyes more wild.

I can see I am dealing with only a child.
My name is Helyn,
And I deal with Magic.
You'd best hold your tongue,
Or this talk will turn tragic.
Take that as a threat,
But take this as advice:
It would do to pay attention
To the opportunity before your eyes.



Holutu was ruffled and disgruntled, but hopped to his Mistress. Once perched on her shoulder, towards the Troll did he hiss.

Opportunity is what I've yet to see,
You've done nothing but insult me!
On top of that, you offend my race,
As a Witch, you are a disgrace!
Now leave me be, to continue my way.
You're screwing up my of agi day!


Irahel snarled as she spoke, and stamped a foot, maintaining her posture and shooting the owl a look.

Helyn began to laugh.

You show spirit!


and stamped her staff.

Accept my gift, and become a minion,
Or choose death!


Irehal says
You've yet to mention the prize?



Helyn grinned widely, her eyes turning green.

It's a surprise!


She began to laugh, her hands started to glow,
The sky turned darker, it was quite the show.

Troll, do you wish to fight by my side?
Choose this fate or meet your demise.
I have more to offer than just a long life!
I can end your largest strife.


Holutu took off from her shoulder, off into the trees, he was not about to be here for this scene!

A tinge hit Irahel's gut, the woman spoke truth.
She hated to admit it, but she loved her youth.
If she could forever be strong, what a prize!
And if... to her hands she turned her eyes.
If this Witch could give her five fingers, hands,
She saw no reason to stray from Helyn's plans.

Now or never! Decide, pick!
A simple 'yes' will do the trick.
Helyn cries


Hands!

Irahel said, and it was done.
Her fate was now set in stone.

Helyn teleported both her and Irahel away.

Irahel now has hands

"You could surely do without that dunce.
But, if you prefer company with fools,
Perhaps I should take back those tools."

Helyn simply blinked at her minion,
who had done her no good.
"No," she stated definitively
Wondering if she should...
No, Helyn decided,
Now was not the time for that.
"Pursue him diligently, please,
We need to catch that rat."

Helyn flicked a hand towards the bottle,
and it swiftly uncapped itself,
She waved her fingers delicately up,
Pouring glasses for Irahel and herself.

"Holutu is busy scouting the woods,
A mundane task, troll, for you.
Besides, do you not wish to learn,
The methods of how to poison brew?"

Helyn didn't touch her drink,
Instead eyeballed the troll.
"Although it does seem it,
The task isn't droll.
I'm sure on the road,
While you're on the way,
You'll cross paths with monsters,
Who will be fit to slay."

Tyli perked, watching the pair that walked in with a curious expression on her face. Mm, worth a shot, she supposed. Leaning her chin onto her hand, she idly stared at the ceiling, huffing a sigh through her nose.

"Man, I wish it was easier to find a witch who could help me with this...cosmetic issue." she mumbled, just loud enough for Helyn to hear.

Her hands were crossed on the table before her, and she was paying very close attention to the atmosphere. Her ears were finely tuned in the direction of the girl at the bar, the only other patron. She could just hear her words under the sound of Irahel's stomps.

Well, most of them, the last thing she heard was "witch." Two identical beast-beings entered the bar, weapons ready. The distraction caused Helyn to lose concentration, and she nearly damned the things! Her eyes flashed but once, but she held them shut.
Oh really? She thought to herself, regardless of frustration growing a smirk.

Tyli Novalee kept to herself, rolling her jaw and emitting a dramatic yawn. Helyn was looking her way, though the girl had no way of knowing whether or not this woman in particular was the Helyn she was looking for.

"I mean," she held out her hand, glancing down at them in mock disgust. "Who needs to turn into a flying squirrel? I sure don't."

Come over and talk to me, she thought. Because there's no way I'm going over to you..."

"I mean, I heard talk of that Helyn. They said she was as powerful as she was beautiful, and pointed me in this direction! Surely if anyone could help me, it would be her." Tyli adopted a disappointed look, even tearing up a little bit.

"Gargoyle," Helyn said in almost a whisper, "You're good with children. Care to check out that one by the bar?" She pointed a bony finger at Tyli.

Helyn listened carefully to the conversation at the counter, as a waitress approached. The woman asked for her order, to which her response was, "Water, please."
Glancing over to the bar, the presence of the two brothers worry-some. She wondered why they were here, but her thought process was interrupted completely.
The girl had spoken her name.
She shot a look at Irahel.

Helyn watched as the child approached, with Dyrmuc on her heels. Good, good. Lacing her fingers and straightening her posture, Helyn rested her palms on the table.

Hi!
The girl's voice was high as she spoke, stating her name to be Tyli.
"Helyn," she responded, sliding in a space and patting the spot besides her. "Do sit."

Helyn slammed open the door to the bar, scowling. She did this not with her hands, but with a small wooshing spell. There she stood, in the doorway, beautiful but menacing. Her eyes swept the bar, observing. She wasn't looking for anyone, for she could already see them. Who couldn't see the damned troll?

She glided across the bar, approaching the two silently. Not a moment passed before she barked out one word;
What.

Helyn leaned to the side ever so slightly as the owl landed, folding an arm up to stroke the armored bird. Without a word, she descended to the stool, nodding curtly once she was seated. Her eyes closed for a moment, she was receiving a thought from the owl, but upon their opening they focused on the screen. Helyn frowned slightly at the object, oh how she despised technology, but nevertheless her hands hovered over it. After a few quick taps, she had ordered a bowl of water and three freshly dead rattus norvegicus.
