❊|Name|❊
Ivanna "Ivy" Elliot

❊|Nickname(s)❊|
Ivy, Anna, Vann | These nicknames are used more often than not. She responds to them as she does to her real name. Deep down she prefers just being called Ivanna, though she's never cared enough to point it out.

❊|Age|❊
Eighteen

❊|Birth Date|❊
December 31st

❊|Gender|❊
Female

❊|Sexual Orientation|❊
Bisexual

❊|Titan/ess|❊
Tethys

❊|Side|❊
Undecided, though slowly leaning toward titans.

Image❊|Power|❊

Being the reincarnation of Tethys, Ivanna has been blessed with weather manipulation. Her powers are primarily based on her emotions, and because of this she's wary of them. She avoids big storms and steers clear of natural disasters. At least, as much as she can. Sometimes they're unavoidable, and as is the damage they cause to her body. The bigger the storm she creates the more of a physical toll it takes on her.

Storm Control || 'Storms' range from petty rainstorms to horrifying natural disasters. The intensity of the storm usually depends on how she's feeling and how strong that feeling is. She can control storms to meet her standards but it'll be much harder if her emotions are disagreeing with her actions. To cause a natural disaster is to unleash a beast, so naturally, doing so is enough to drain her energy to the point of fainting. Though the toll on her body usually sets in after the worst of the storm is over.

Temperature Manipulation || Weather does indeed include temperature, and so, it is one of the things she can control. Temperature control comes the easiest tp Anna, and it ranges from freezing to melting. The more extreme the temperature, the more concentration is required. Emotion-wise, temperature isn't affecting that much, despite very small changes in the temperature around her.

Enhanced || Creating storms is hard work, but being vulnerable to your own storm is even worse. But Vann doesn't have to worry about that, for her powers enhance the senses usually dull when in bad weather. For example, her sight is better than most, so she has a better time seeing in the midst of a storm. She's also more durable when it comes to temperature changes, and has an abnormally high resistance to colds and such.

Image❊|Personality|❊ Comforting, Distant, Adrenaline Addict, Vengeful, Tenacious

Dip your toes in with Ivanna, and you'll get what everyone else does. You'll get small smiles, a few words, and a calm aroma. Nothing more and nothing less. What you won't get is Ivy. You won't understand how the actual Anna works, and you'll never know until you dig deeper. No, she will not hold your hand nor will she push it away. It all depends on you. If you knock, she will open the door. That's how she works. She embraces curiosity. She appreciates those who are daring; those who aren't forsaken by their limits. Those who are not, she does not despise, but she does not appreciate. Ivanna would look to help them break out of their shell, to embrace their weaknesses. Surprising to some, she makes a great mentor. She understands people's emotions and knows how to comfort them. But even though she understands others, she feels as if others don't understand her. Her small smiles, her lack of words, and her uneventful aroma are not who she is. She is so much more than that, she loves the complete opposite of what people make her out to be. A strange sense of distance is what she feels between her and those around her, as no one has knocked on her door. She longs to fill this distance, but has never known how. She knows others so well, yet she doesn't quite know how to fix herself. It's as intriguing as it is frustrating.

A calm environment is a boring one. And if there's anything Ivanna hates, it's boredom. Boredom, in all of its forms, is agonizing. What is not agonizing, however, is a wonderful rush of adrenaline. Yes, Vann loves adrenaline. So much that she's become addicted to it. She cannot stand to go a day without her heart dancing in her chest. To do so would be... agonizing to say the least. Not to mention, without that wonderful fluid coursing throughout her veins, she's actually a bit less sharper. Not to say that she isn't sharp, of course. But when under pressure, when that wonderful feeling is fueling her, she goes from smart to ingenious. Ivy likes to claim that's why she loves adrenaline so much (though you'll rarely see her admitting to that at all,) though deep down she knows it's just to avoid the intense struggle that is being bored.

Her lust for adrenaline is not the only thing that hides behind her shell of tranquil. No, Anna is actually quite vengeful. While it isn't easy to anger her, it isn't hard, either. When you do anger her, it's hard to notice. By the time you do realize she's pissed off at you, she's probably already gotten you back. And know that she'll always get you back. It'll hit you, and it'll hit you hard. When Ivanna plots against people, she does so quietly. Coldly. She'll analyze you, pick out your weaknesses, fears, emotional attachments. Vann will pick the best "punishment" for you and execute when she feels it is right. She prefers hurting someone emotionally, not physically. As one can probably tell, she holds grudges and those grudges are not easily forgotten. Once you wrong her, there is no hope of redemption. Though she doesn't trust people in general, so that's not so much of a stretch from being a stranger. Only main difference is that you won't have a chance to earn her trust. Period.

Anna is a very open minded person. She likes to see things from all sides in order to create a complete picture. Though she is open minded, she certainly isn't easily swayed. Once Ivy's mind is set on something, you may dream on if you think you're going to change her opinion. She is quite a tenacious lass. And not only in the context of being stubborn. She's always been a tough girl. She is not unstable, she is not easily broken, and is certainly not sensitive. No, you can dig at her all you want, but be prepared to come out with nothing but skin. To say that she has 'thick skin' is an understatement. If you want to upset Ivanna, you'd better look for a different approach.

Some say that Vann doesn't have a sense of humor. Though it may seem so, this is not true. No, in fact, she loves a good joke. The only problem is she doesn't know any good jokes. So she always sits back and lets other people bring the funny. Though some don't bother to around her, for they feel she doesn't find them funny. However, that's completely untrue. It's just that when subjected to any kind of joke she doesn't laugh. No, she merely smiles.

Likes ||
Blue | Something about the color is oddly comforting.
Natural Disasters | The chaos wrought by them is simply astounding. Nothing brings the adrenaline, the pressure, like natural disasters.
Constellations and Star Gazing | Ivanna has always thought it incredible how the human mind took one gaze at the stars, and sorted out pictures, stories, all out of small specks in the sky.
Adrenaline | It's safe to say that Ivy is secretly addicted to all forms of adrenaline.
Knowledge | Besides adrenaline rushes, knowledge is the only that drags Vann out of the sorry pit that is boredom.
Books | Adventures wrapped in colorful covers and painted by words printed on sheets of paper. Short or long, if written well, offer a package of excitement to be consumed with vigor.
Silence | The sweet lack of sound that is silence has always been appealing to Ivanna. There's an eerie, abyssal feeling to it that she's always loved.
Painting | A wonderful activity that helps capture all types of artistic genius.
Snow | Like silence, something about snow is oddly comforting to her. It beckons an air of tranquility.
Roller Coasters | They're exhilarating! They really get the adrenaline pumping.
Pressure | Once again, another way to get the adrenaline pumping.

Dislikes ||
Being Bored | Above all else, Ivy hates being bored. It's unbearable. Painful, even.
Poorly Written Books | They're a disgrace to the amazing ideas that good books have cooked up. Like a stain on a beautiful shirt.
Small Spaces | She's claustrophobic, so it only makes sense that she doesn't like small spaces.
Being Wrong | Not only is being wrong humiliating, but unsatisfactory. Being wrong is something Ivanna will never allow.
Sleeping | What a waste of time. Why sleep when you could be doing so many other things? Like star-gazing, or painting?
Being Tickled | Do not, under any circumstances, tickle Anna. All you will be rewarded with is a black eye and the sour taste of regret in your mouth.
Being Touched | Vann has a strong aversion to touch. If you touch her without her consent, whether it be her clothes or skin, she will be disturbed to the point that she'll take some kind of action, ranging from twitching to punching.

Fears ||
Claustrophobic | Small spaces are not Ivy's forte. If kept in one for too long, she'll start to panic.
Insanity | The aspect of insanity has always frightened Ivanna. The aspect of losing your mind, never recovering it, losing all that is sensible and being sucked into the train wreck that is... madness.
Humanity's Annihilation | Humans are what make life interesting. Are they pitiful? ...Yes. Are they bothersome? ...Sometimes. But that does not mean their annihilation. They are what give life spice, what thrive in the darkness, they are the ones who light the match when no one else can. Without humans, knowledge would disintegrate, progress would dissipate, and worst of all, things would get awfully... boring.

Strengths ||
Nimble | Vann has always had a quick mind. Resourceful, intelligent, and good under pressure, strategy and mind games have never been a problem for her.
Lithe | Supple and slender, in battles she weaves in between her opponents and strikes when the time is up. They saw when she fights, she paralyzes her foes by awing them with her graceful yet effective fighting style.
Pressure | Not only is Ivy good under pressure; she's better under pressure. When her adrenaline is coursing and her mental gears start turning, she goes from smart to ingenious.
High Self-Esteem | Anna is not, nor has she ever been burdened with petty insecurities. Her thick skin may as well be referred to as a solid sheet of metal.
Open-minded | Ivanna does not hesitate to hear other's ideas. In fact, she embraces different perspectives and yearns to know things from all angles.

Weaknesses ||
Stubborn | Open-minded as she may be, that does not mean she's willing to change her position. She'll listen to your side, but she will not join it. Don't try changing Ivy's opinion on something. Because in her eyes, her opinion is equivalent to fact.
Distant | Though she longs to connect with others and truly understand their plights, she finds that she simply cannot. However hard she tries, she always feels as though she's still... distant.
Boredom and Adrenaline | Boredom is... agonizing. Anna hates being bored. She'll do anything to avoid boredom... Anything. Her main salvation is adrenaline. She's addicted to the rush of adrenaline, and will do anything to activate it. That includes... extremes.

Image ❊|History|❊
Ivanna has seen it all, and can speak it all. From the Eiffel Tower, to the Great Pyramid of Giza, to the Colosseum, to the Statue of Liberty, and the Great Wall of China, she has seen it all. And she can indeed speak it all; as a matter of fact Ivy speaks more languages than she can count. That's all thanks to her parents and their hobby of traveling the world. Her Dad, a famous architect, and her Mother, a budding artist both shared the dream of world travel. Realizing that together they both had the money for it, they pursued their dream. But that wasn't their only dream. No, they dreamed of having a child. And so, they settled in Breatange, France for a little while and welcomed little Ivanna Elliot into the world. They welcomed her into this world with much love and attention. During the day they comforted her with hugs, kisses, and proper affection while at night they rocked her to sleep with stories of their amazing adventures all over the world. As Ivy grew she became more and more curious as to these wonderful places they spoke of, and her parent's longing to start traveling again grew as well. And so it was decided that they would begin traveling again. It was also decided that Vann should start learning other languages, as she couldn't go about the world knowing just French. And so, Anna, with the help of her parents, learned many, many languages including Korean, English, Spanish, Italian, Irish, Japanese, Dutch, Chinese, Latin, and more. Though she understood all, she found she was most fluent in Latin, English, and Korean. And of course, French, but that's to be expected as it is her first language. You can tell it's her first language because of her slight French accent.

Ivanna could not contain her excitement as she went on her first plane ride. Their first destination was Rome, Italy. Ivy was ten years old then. Everything was going smoothly until she had to go to the bathroom. She did not expect the bathroom to be so tiny, but that was no matter, as long as she did her business quickly. The true extent of her claustrophobia only set in after a few minutes in being in small spaces... So she thought she was fine. That is, until the door's lock broke. When she realized the lock broke was when she realized she didn't have any way of getting out. That's when the panic started to set in, along with the suffocating feeling that was introduced by none other than her good friend claustrophobia. At this time she didn't know that she hosted Tethys, so she didn't realize that panicking would make things even worse. Not until the plane was nearly shot down by a stray bolt of lightning. A chaotic thunder storm was starting to stir, and Vann was the root of it. That's when she first heard Tethys. Tethys's calming words and guidance slowly reigned Anna's panic in. The storm passed and Ivanna yelled for a flight attendant to help her out of the small space. The catastrophe ended, and Ivy was now aware of Tethys's presence.

Through the years Vann came to know the voice inside of her head. Tethys slowly revealed the past of the titans, along with the capabilities of Anna's powers, only revealing bits and pieces of information so that Ivanna could work with Tethys in order to complete the picture. The idea of titans and powers and the others enthralled her. However, what did not enthrall her was the goal the titans were working toward. The annihilation of the human race seemed a bit extreme, though the titan inside her thought otherwise. Though the two disagreed on the topic they still got along, conversing frequently and growing closer in spirit. To this day Ivy has still contemplated which side she'll choose. Both sides were appealing and appalling in their own ways, and she wasn't sure which outweighs the other. Though the more she talks with Tethys, the more landscapes she paints and admires, and the more the distance between her and humans grows, she's seriously wondering if she should just join Tethys and stop pulling her hair over the matter.

* Over her time traveling, Ivanna began painting along with her mother. She usually paints nature and landscapes, as she finds that area of scenery the best.
* When Ivy turned eighteen she left her parents to their traveling and settled in Seoul. She bought her own apartment and is currently attending her senior year and only year of high school. She thinks it to be an interesting experience, as she's only ever been home-schooled.

Ice blue pigtails bounced as Ivanna, soul holder of Tethys, walked upon the bank of the Han River. In her hands she held age old painting materials: a folded wooden easel, a brown paper bag filled with assortments of paints and various size paintbrushes along with one lead pencil and a pad of paper, and a folded wooden stool. Blue eyes stared out at the river before her; the view in all honesty was a bit uninspiring compared to other things she'd seen. In fact, it could easily be labeled as boring in her eyes. But for some odd reason, she'd decided to paint it. Maybe it was because she secretly liked the way the water shined in the sunlight. Or perhaps because her mother once fantasized about seeing it. But it was probably because Tethys was being all too insistent about it. She'd been talking about the place for months. In fact, Tethys was the reason Vann decided to settle in Seoul of all places. The titan also mentioned Louisiana, but Seoul was more to Ivy's liking.

"Are you going to tell me why I'm here now?" The girl asked, hiking the paper bag further up her arm. "Mmmm, you'll see soon enough, my dear." What an annoyingly empty answer. Anna would've frowned if it weren't for the sudden onset of excitement, which she could only assume came from Tethys. Ivanna had little to no reason to be excited, and she was sure Tethys did not... Which only brought on the question; what could be waiting for her along the bank of this mundane river? As she scanned her brain for any possible explanations, she ended her search with few answers. And the only one that seemed remotely plausible was that there were titans somewhere along this path. Vann did not know what to think of this, as she was never very keen on looking for the others. Though it's not to say that she was planning to avoid them. No, it'd be interesting to meet them. People who understood her plight would provide a... curious conversation, and not to mention, outlook. Her lips pursed as she contemplated what they thought of this whole titan v.s the humans ordeal... Conflicting visions could end up very badly. But then again, it would definitely provoke a nice rush of adrenaline, being amidst all the fighting. Would it all end in fighting? She'd have to keep walking to find out. And keep walking she did.

It wasn't until Ivy's legs grew tired that she stopped. Instead of scouting for possible titan vessels (much to Tethys's displeasure) she set down her supplies and arranged them accordingly. After she unfolded her easel and stool, and set the pad of paper on the easel's stand, she took out her lead pencil. She sat on the stool and stared at the horizon for a few moments, before looking back at the paper and beginning to draw. Something told her that the others were very close, so she'd wait for them to come to her. Ivanna decided she'd start her painting while she waited, or at least start the sketch. She was at a nice spot, anyway. Why not?

As her mind and her eyes became more and more immersed in her drawing, the more the world around her became faded away. It wasn't until she heard the word titan that she was knocked out of her trance. "Oh my, you really are a titan!"

A sudden and strong wave of excitement washed over Vann as she laid eyes on three figures. "Gods, it's about time you saw them!" Tethys boomed. "You didn't even see the rocks hover! That was Rhea, don't you realize?" The titan's voice was loud enough to give Anna a headache. And because of that, she knew the excitement that had just punched her in the guts was definitely foreign. Or in other words, godly.

"I apologize if I am interrupting," Ivanna lied, sitting up from her stool and strolling over to the three titan vessels. "But did I hear someone say 'titan'?"

Seoul, South Korea | Han River





Though Kiyota is almost convinced now that the girl in front of him right now is also a vessel for another Titan, due to the fact that his Titaness is literally screaming inside him that she was indeed one whose name is Mnemosyne. Though he doesn't overly trust Rhea, he couldn't find out a reason why she would be lying to him about this either. Besides, she was a Titaness and Kiyota is only a human who was chosen to be her vessel, it is obvious that she could tell things that he couldn't.

But listening to what the girl replied to him, there's a possibility that the Titan part inside of her hasn't awoken yet. If that really was the case, then perhaps it is better that Kiyota shouldn't dwell too much into the subject right now. Even though he can rest assure for now that he wasn't the only Titan whose accommodation is in Korea. He scratches the back of his head before replying to her other question with a rather unconvincing smile, "Nothing, actually. I was just looking for some special people who had some sort of... connection with me, even though I've never met them before. It sounds really weird, right? But sorry for troubling you. I hope that you'll be successful with your project. Have a nice day."

With that said, Kiyota was on the verge on turning his back and walk away already, but then again, Rhea stirred up once more and saying that besides from the girl, there are also other two Titans here. This surprised Kiyota to no end as he just stood completely stiff at where he was standing. And before he even know it, a girl with long, flowing blonde hair who was seemingly around his age suddenly spoke up, claiming that they were also Titans in a rather exciting manner as she approached both Kiyota and the girl. By the look of it, she's definitely a Titan - whose name stated by Rhea to be Hyperion.

But before Kiyota could even reacted by any means, another young girl with green hair also strolling up to where the trio was standing and asking if someone's just said the word 'titan', once again startled and surprised him. W-W-Wait, this is just too much to take in at once. Kiyota thought to himself with a surprise expression still ever present on his face. He was speechless and he couldn't say anything as he hasn't prepared himself mentally for this situation yet. And he believes that none of the girl does.

Staying silent for a short while, Kiyota finally mustered all of his courage and exhaled a deep breath before speaking up to the girls. "Okay, I know that this day will come, but this is just a bit too much." He said calmly, but on the inside, he was far from being calm, "So if I was thinking correctly, the three of you are also vessels of the Titans, right? Since everyone was being straightforward about it, I suppose there's no reason to hide anymore. I'm sure your inner voices have already told you what you need to know, anyway."

He then straightened himself up before introducing properly, "I am the vessel of Rhea, one of the Titans. But my human name is Kiyota Mikazuki. It's a pleasure to meet you all." He said before bowing respectfully to the girls.

"So it seems my gut feeling was correct. There are others here." A gentle voice would come from the water as the three Titans spoke. Those who turned around would see a Japanese woman, clearly a foreigner speaking in a language that they would all inheritly understand. That of the Titans. An ancient dialect, long lost, but it would ring in their souls, their subconscious, something understood with ease. "How... nostalgic this feeling is." Though the circumstances were entirely different, each one seemed to be like the woman's siblings. She smiled as softly as she spoke, approaching them with a certain grace to her pose. The Japanese had a term for the way she seemed to be carrying herself. Yamato Nadeshiko, the "ideal" Japanese woman. She had been eavesdropping on the conversation these sort-of-strangers were having, how they spoke so openly of their past existence. It was charming, how human they all really were, though.

Unlike these folks, the dominant personality within them was that of the Titan, Oceanus. Perhaps it was how early she had awoken and quickly became in-tune with her past life. Perhaps it was the human's passiveness that was allowing the Titan to explore the world through her eyes. Needless to say, her position was clearly different than the others. But the human in her couldn't help but be amused by the whole situation.


"Now that we're in Korea, where are we going to go next, Mister Oceanus?" The soft voice of the human girl spoke to her Titan from within their shared mind. How strange Oceanus found it that a human would willingly share her body in this way. It was as if she was in the passenger seat of her own body.
"Hmm... I do believe I want to visit the Han River." Crisp ocean air filled the Titan's lungs as they got off of their boat, providing a somehow nostalgic and completely new feeling to her. "It has been quite a while since I had been able to check upon the spirits of my children in the world... and the Han River has always been important to the humans of this area. I wish to revisit. For old time's sake."



It was as simple a decision as that. To think that it would lead to a reunion with some of the others. She approached the three teens, all seeming to be the same age as her, more or less. Looking all of them over, it was hard to tell just by looking which Titan dwelled within their vessels... though the same could be said for herself. Waving a hand over her very light purple shirt and black shorts, the water that once coated her body seemed to glide off with ease and leave her once-translucent clothing now fresh and dry. If they truly were Titans, there was no need to hide her gift. And if they weren't, well... who would believe them if they tried talking about that little trick? "Forgive me just intruding on your conversation, brothers and sisters, but I was actually looking forward to seeing you all once more." With a slight bow, she rose and waved slightly. "How the hell've you all been, anyway?" Her dialect suddenly took a shift with that greeting as her smile widened. They all didn't seem to have their Titan be the dominant personality like Suijin did... but it was all well and good.

"I am the Titan Oceanus, reborn in the body of a Japanese girl named Suijin Aoimura. I go by her name now. Good to meet you all. Or see you all again. Whichever you all prefer." She laughs into her hand and lets out a soft sigh. "I wonder why some of you haven't awoken yet, though, while I have... Perhaps because the Olympians left me be and did not imprison me? Hm.." She shrugged in thought as she tried to match up Titan names to faces, but no real avail. At least Rhea introduced herself. And one other eluded to Mnemosyne... If only one would reveal themselves as Tethys. That would be the most pleasant reunion... but alas, all things in time. She seemed pretty amused by it all, but rather... uncomfortable at the same time. "Y'know. I really don't know whether to be addressing your human selves or your Titans. Your situations all seem... different from ours at the very least."

Mnemosyne || Mind/Memory Reading || #38ACEC ||


      "Ah of course," she nodded, "everyone wants to know about Greek mythos these days."

      He was really a sort of candid guy wasn't he? You can't blame a vessel for being wary, someone chuckled, not everyone has had an easy road as you have.

      Oh you're here again. Care to chime in?

      “Oh my, you really are a titan!”

      "I apologize if I am interrupting, but did I hear someone say 'titan'?"

      "So it seems my gut feeling was correct. There are others here."

      In reality everyone was ridiculously candid. At the very sound of the word "titan", three Titans gathered with their vessels humans in tow. These people were serious. So serious in fact that they couldn't leave the two to their own conversation.

      Hyun supposed that it had to be the case since she could hear all of their mental mumbling. Hyun had gotten skilled at exercising Mnemosyne's ability without having her butt her head in so she managed to tag everyone's thought styles within seconds of their speech and only managed a sigh. Rhea rumbled inside of the photographer, constantly prodding him like a nagging mother while Hyperion leaked excitement (like a dog the voice would laugh). In truth, the titaness very rarely contacted her and if she did, it was just for some warnings or to give her ideas so Hyun honestly regarded her as less of a person and more of a dying entity. That was basically what was happening wasn't it? She didn't even give the Korean girl a name so much as a feeling. Still, she could draw conclusions, she was a smart girl. Rhea was screaming "Mnemosyne" after all.

      "Okay well I didn't know about any of this so news to me," she said flatly after Kiyoto and Oceanus finished their introductions, "Hyun Ji Park and...Mnemosyne I guess."

Kumiko was more than surprised when even more vessels started appearing one after another. The next to arrive after her had shocking blue hair what Kumiko absolutely adored. Her expression mirrored that of awe when the blue haired girl first spoke. Inside of her Hyperion was giddy with the actuality of their reunion. If Kumiko were to be honest she had never had a lot of hope of even finding one of the other vessels, she travelled around the world now, sure, but the world was incredibly vast. Billions upon billions of people inhabited the world and with only twelve of those billion people being titan holders the blonde girl had been reserved about finding even one.

When the last to arrive, Suijin, was the strangest of the small group. She had seemingly emerged from the water, and when she started speaking it visibly startled the girl. She was aware that the language being spoken was not one of the three she already knew, but despite that she still knew what the woman was saying. Hyperion was in her head, mumbling about the old language. It didn’t sound like anything humans used to communicate; it was a lot more primal, maybe even celestial, yet Kumiko found she understood what Suijin was saying. It was kind of exciting.

When everyone started introducing themselves Kumiko felt slightly overwhelmed. The boy had started the introductions, his name was something very Japanese, he looked Japanese too so that made sense. Mikazuki something, it started with a K sound. Kitoya maybe? He had just said it and she didn’t want to be rude by asking, it would be embarrassing to say she couldn’t remember his name after him just saying it. What she did get was that he housed Rhea, which meant nothing to Kumiko, she relied on Hyperion for all her titan based information. “Rhea is the titaness of order and flow. She also birthed many of the Olympian gods.” Ko hummed to herself and eyed up the scarf clad boy. He looked just as overwhelmed by the sudden gathering of titans as she did.

The woman that appeared from the water introduced herself next, and she was nearly frightening. She seemed on a whole new level of closeness with her titan, and it was unnerving because she looked like a real god with the way she carried herself. Her powers seemed strong, probably from being so close to her titan half, and it was more than unnerving to Kumiko. Suijin had an air of superiority to her that Kumiko found she didn’t want to oppose and she didn’t really like it. The blonde girl was more then happy when the only person that actually looked Korean started speaking, taking the attention away from the woman.

Her name was Hyun Ji Park and although Kumiko tried her best to me bubbly and happy interacting with so many other people at once was still hard. At least Mnemosyne’s vessel seemed easy to talk to. She looked towards the shorthaired girl and gave her a bright smile, she wasn’t exactly sure who Mnemosyne was though, her name was ridiculous. Kumiko, try not to be closed-minded, my siblings are millenniums in age. And Mnemosyne is the Titaness of memory.

Hyperion scolded her gently, with the same tone parents took to their toddlers and Kumiko had to suppress the urge to roll her eyes. Her heart had finally calmed down from the initial meeting and Hyperion seemed to have wrapped in his own excitement in so it didn’t leak into her own demeanor, and as she looked around it seemed the rest of the group was starting to calm down from the initial meeting. Clearing her throat the blond girl attempted to draw attention to herself.

“Um, My name is Kumiko Takazawa, Hyperion has been with me since I was young, and I am a professional violinist! I usually live in Japan, but I’m on a world tour!”
She held up her fingers in a peace sign and gave everyone a big smile. Friendliness was key to making a good first impression on others.

Ivanna examined the titans around her in silence as she fiddled with the lead pencil in hand. At that moment in time there were three others, each different from the last. The blonde one was the first to catch her attention, perhaps due to her lighter color scheme or the look of awe painted across her features. Ivy couldn't quite figure out why she was awe-stricken, but she returned the look with a small smile. The next person who caught her attention was a skinny girl with short, brown hair. Just as Ivanna turned to examine the one male, another voice caught her attention. Another titan, by the sounds of it.

Vann's ice blue eyes landed on yet another girl with white eyes and jet black hair. The woman introduced herself as the mind of Oceanus, inside a girl named Suijin Aoimura. At the mention of Oceanus Anna felt Tethys begin to stir. That same excitement began taking over again, and Ivanna couldn't help but let out a short giggle, much to her displeasure. Stop it, the girl thought, shifting uncomfortably. She absolutely hated it when Tethys took over like that. Whether it be through emotions or actions, it was always disturbing to know that her body wasn't completely... hers.

The subject quickly dissipated as the only male of the group introduced himself as Kiyota, soul holder of Rhea (who must have been behind the hovering rocks.) Next was Hyun Ji Park, the taller female along with Mys... Mnys.. Mnemosyne? Ivanna blinked a few times as she tried to recall the titan's power. Something with the mind, yes? No, no, that was Themis. Mnemosyne was... something to do with mind and memory, yes? Yes. Ivy would leave it at that for now.

A clearing of a throat brought the blue haired girl's attention to expert violinist Kumiko Takazawa. The mention of her name rang a small bell in Ivanna's mind; she vaguely remembered listening to one of her pieces. They were unique, brash even, yet intriguing at the same time. She'd have to remember to give the girl a compliment once all the introductions were over. Speaking of introductions... It was about time these titans knew her name. And, of course, her titan.

"I am with the titan Tethys. My name is Ivanna Elliot, but most call me Ivy. It is..." She paused for a moment, cherry picking her words. "An interesting occurrence to meet you all. Especially this suddenly." The last part was more abrupt than she'd meant it to be. But she supposed the sentence fragment held too much truth to be suppressed. To meet four other titans at the same time, at the same place was definitely an interesting occurrence. And not to mention, an overwhelming one. She had not expected this, and while surprises were always appreciated in her book, some surprises were better than others. This surprise was not one of the better ones, no, but one that was laced with apprehension and was, in fact, an extremely fragile canvas. Pick the wrong paint and find your picture stained forever, harder to fix, and possibly cast into the abyss that is defeat; ugliness. Yes, this situation had to be approached with delicacy. There was no telling what the others thought of this war the titans were looking to wage upon the humans.

"Human annihilation." Tethys mumbled. "It's a touchy subject, isn't it? Approach it with care, Ivanna. I know that you don't know where you stand... So don't make any rash decisions. Not without your own consent, at least." Vann's eyes locked on the ground. The fighting that was bound to happen was sure to get the best of her; the adrenaline was sure to take hold... and Ivanna knew she'd do anything to keep it flowing... and if she was desperate... it might be against reason.

"...Of course not." After clearing her throat, she looked to the others with the slightest of smiles. "Well then. Now that matters of courtesy are behind us, I suppose we should get the point. I assume we all know of the... matter at hand, and I must ask where everyone stands. I will start." Ivanna took a deep breath. "I'm not sure which side I'm on. However, if I'm to be frank I will say that I am leaning toward... toward the titan side, but I do not hold this position with much confidence."

Seoul, South Korea | Han River





After his little introduction, Kiyota straightened himself up while waiting for the other girls to properly introduce themselves, too. He couldn't help but wondering why was he the only male vessel around here. It's not like that he minded that much but it makes him a little... stand-off, to say. Despite that, Kiyota couldn't help but having a nagged feelings that he was a rather normal individual, in comparison to the ladies in front of him right then. Though as much as he wanted to see this as a special and intimating reunion, the feeling is nothing different from when he first came across with a Titan years ago - which almost costs him his life. Am I going to put my life on a jeopardy line this time too? Shaking his head at the thought, he shouldn't say that out loud.

Rhea is still squeaking in an exciting way in his mind, though of course, she still retained a certain amount of calmness while acting all motherly-like - as she said. Apparently she was really thrilled to have met her siblings again after such a long time that Kiyota couldn't possibly think of because it is way beyond human comprehension.

Then, just moments after that, another Titan's vessel appeared, startled Kiyota once again. Turning his back to face the Titan known as Oceanus, Kiyota couldn't help but raised an eyebrow on how... special this person was. The Titan's vessel is just a normal girl like the other three girls around him right here, but what intrigued him was how eager she was to use her powers openly in the middle of the public like this. While it's true that his own power did get a little haywire earlier, there's nothing to worried as it's only a few rock. But luckily that at that moment, there weren't many people rather than them.

The girl then went on introducing herself, but the way she talked is quite informal, despite them meeting for the first time ever - as vessels, apparently. Looks like she's also a Japanese whose name was Suijin Aoimura, though it is correct that she's indeed the one who harbored Oceanus. And more than that, maybe she was acknowledging them as the Titans, rather than by their humans' identities. Kiyota could felt a strong presence of the Titan within the girl, which is completely different from him. It almost feels as if he was facing with the Titan himself but not the girl. Kind of a mind blow, isn't it?

After the arrival of Suijin and her introduction, the other girls also began to introduce themselves. The first one to do so was the girl whom he first encountered known as Hyun Ji Park and the vessel of Mnemosyne, as Rhea told Kiyota so. He doesn't really know how to feel about her. She doesn't seem to stand out and it looks like she's as normal as himself. Hyun looked quite a studious girl herself. That's all he could really figure out at the moment.

The next girl acknowledged herself as Kumiko Takazawa, whose name made Kiyota raises an eyebrow at. Her name and her accent proved that she's also a Japanese, like him and Suijin, and her Titan is Hyperion. Now taking a better look at Kumiko, Kiyota finally saw that she is somewhat familiar. Maybe he's seen her on some posters or something. And from the way she talked to them, apparently she's quite a friendly girl who can get along with just about anyone, despite being someone who can be considered as... famous? Nonetheless, it seems Kumiko was quite interesting than she looked. Though whether Kiyota is able to build up enough interests to get to know her more or not is beyond him.

And then, it comes to the last person, who introduced herself as Ivanna Elliot, though her nickname is Ivy with the fact that she's the vessel of the Titan of Tethys. Different from Kumiko and Suijin, it seems that this girl was quite picky and careful with her words, as if she's fearing that something will go wrong if her words didn't go as the way she intended. A little bit too cautious for everyone's sakes, isn't she?

But Kiyota couldn't care less. The way she reacted is understandable upon meeting the people whom you have never met before, but in reality, they did have strong connections with you, whether if you like it or not. Kiyota has learnt to live with it now and it's not like that he's complaining about anything.

When the introductions are done, they all fell silent for a brief moment. Apparently everyone is still questioning on how to react and what to say now that some of the ones whom they're supposed to look for are standing in front of them. Kiyota was intending to speak something in his mind, but before he could, Ivanna spoke up again and stated about what is known as the 'matter at hands' as everyone knows it, and asked which sides did they all stand for while stating her own point of view.

This is one thing that Kiyota never even wanted just to think of, not to mention discussing about it. But now that he's met some of his fellow vessels again, he knows he couldn't elude it again even if he didn't want to. Luckily that after his effort to hold the Titan down, Rhea has stayed quiet for now.

"Since Suijin-san here did show us what she's capable of, I think I should explain about my capabilities too." After looking around to check if there was anyone else watching, Kiyota raised his hand as some of the rocks around him began to float as if they are weightless, "I have power to manipulate gravity. Similar to telekinesis, I can move objects to my liking, ranges from something as light as these rocks to those that heavier such as a large metal bar. It really did save my life once. Though sometimes it did go out of control a bit like what has happened earlier."

Then, Kiyota flipped as they all fell down and lay on the ground again. Taking a deep breath, he fixed his scarf a bit before started to speak up, "I know that sooner or later, I will have to take this matter into consideration. No matter what my so-called Titaness always nagged me about, I have my own will and I never allowed her to manipulate me to do as her liking. While it is true that I'm also a vessel like you all, the decisions that I've made are solely mine. Unlike some of you, I don't often communicate with my Titaness. Which is why, I can say with certainty that destruction is something that doesn't exist in my dictionary."

Setting his gaze somewhere else, he continued, "I wouldn't say that I have the happiest of a past, living as a person. I couldn't defend humanity for what they've done for this planet either. But in my opinion, I don't agree that total annihilation is a wise solution for everything. The weight of a life is way heavier than that and it shouldn't be treated like some sort of trash to be dispose of. Like you, I didn't have a clear decision of which sides to stand just yet, but I most certainly will never kill a single living human as long as I live. That is my ideal."

Looking at his watch, Kiyota then spoke up, "As much as I want to keep the conversation going with you ladies, and enjoy this 'happy reunion' between the Titans, I still had a college to attend. So I have to take my leave for now. If what is known as 'fate' has decided, we will come across again."

Turning his back, Kiyota then walked away from the other girls and heading off to the bus station. While sitting on a bus that took him back to his university, he couldn't help but wonder if he will meet them again soon.

Mnemosyne || Mind/Memory Reading || #38ACEC ||


      There were so many thoughts swimming around in people's heads...mostly about her titan's name. Mnemosyne. Mnemosyne. Men-o-syne. M-nemo-sin. Ne-mo-syne. Apparently it was quite the tongue twister even if the names of the other titans were just as ridiculous (looking at you Hyperion and your battery-brand sounding ass). In Korean it would be phonetically translated as "므 네모 시네" and that was essentially how she read it in her head whenever her titan felt the need to converse. She didn't very much like speaking in Greek as transferring from one written system to another was tough work. Plus Mnemosyne chose to live in her so she had to learn the language. It was like the rule of immigration or something.

      Reading for words and literal content of the other vessels proved much harder as many of them were Japanese (or "Jap dogs" as her grandfather called them) and she had little interest in learning Japanese. She could only glean bits and pieces from the titans and pieced together that everyone was as wary as they were relieved to find others of their kind. The time that felt like mere moments to them was actually around a minute or two of internal conversation that Hyun let herself soak in as Mnemosyne reminded her that she should probably be saying something.

      Aren't your siblings more worried that you aren't speaking up?

      It's not my problem. I'll barely have an impact on this upcoming war, I've already seen it coming.

      You are the titan of memory not future seeing.

      The future merely consists of the consequences of the past and present. I'm only here to give you insight on both.

      That's not very helpful or even decisive.

      Neither of us are strong in that department. I had nine children after all. I just couldn't decide on one.

      Nothing further came of the conversation as Mnemosyne dissipated into silence and Hyun stared at Ivanna who asked about choosing sides between the humans and the titans. The question caught her off guard as her titan felt completely content to leave her in the dark regarding important matters such as human-titan war, the destruction of the environment, and anything missing from the history book. She was content to let Hyun swim in uncertainty now that she met four others of her own kind, one of whom made it clear that she was likely heading toward the titan side and the other completely devoid of human personality. Hyun didn't really have an answer per se because she had very few attachments in the first place. She could live with her friends or she could find new ones.

      On the other hand she couldn't exactly find new friends if they were all dead right? And she was human. Would she be dumped once the titans got their way? If that were true it was really, really screwed up. The idea didn't so much horrify her as piss her off because the titans could very well be that cold. They believed they were above humanity and it was humanity's fault that the Earth was slowly degrading (never mind the lack of divine intervention) and that didn't agree much with her.

      Still...her apathy knew no bounds.

      "I just want to bike and play video games," she shrugged.

It was the blue haired girl, Ivanna was her name, that brought to their attention why the titans were inside them in the first place. It was a hard reality for Kumiko, and often with Hyperion’s kind demeanor she forgot that the god inside her sought for the end all of humanity as a species. But because she had doubted ever encountering the other vessels whenever Hyperion had brought up his mission she had always tried to brush it off and give halfhearted commitment. She could feel Hyperion stirring inside of her, his euphoria over the fact his siblings had gathered, that they were already speaking of human annihilation. It was an excitement she could not say she shared.

It was only once Ivy announced that she was still undecided did the knot in her gut loosen ever so slightly, at least she wasn’t the only one on the fence over the titan mission. There wasn’t much hope, considering she said she was leaning towards the titan side, but hesitance was all Kumiko needed as confirmation that she was not abnormal for being unsure of her stance. “I cannot believe that girl even has any hesitance towards the cause.” Hyperion quipped in the back of her mind, and it made her nervous about admitting her own reluctance.

The Japanese boy was the next to voice his opinion after Ivy, and unfortunately he did not restate his name. He did, however; give them a small demonstration of his power. It was cool, and he seemed much more powerful than Kumiko. His ability to change the gravity around him was quite simply astounding, the rocks that hovered around him probably had no gravity acting on them at all, and that was amazing. She couldn’t keep the amazed smile off her face as he showed them his power. It could really be used to deal damage in large quantities, and possibly genocidal.

She was caught off guard when the boy then completely rejected the goal of the titans, and Kumiko could physically feel Hyperion inside her recoil at the statement, and even as the boy went away she couldn’t find it in herself to move. Hyperion was constricting himself around her mind in his anger at the boy, it actually hurt to do anything other then stand still, but he quickly regained himself. The experience did nothing more than frighten her into revealing her reluctance to join the titan cause, and Hyperion only encouraged her to voice that she was for the titan cause, as if it might influence the others to stay true to the titan cause. She cleared her throat, changing the topic instead to what they boy had mentioned earlier.

“Um, Hyperion is the titan of light, but his abilities deal more with fire… I can’t really do anything with actual fire though, and I tend to just run a high temperature, but I can do this!”
The blonde girl took a deep breath, enjoying the feeling on her expanding lungs before she exhaled through her nose. As she did, plumes of smoke exited her nose, falling around her in lazy clumps and coating the ground around them in something that resembled fog. When the girl finished she bent down and ran her fingers through the thick smoke, it broke apart at the disturbance and reformed to create a few smokey rabbits. The little creatures seemed to come to life, darting around the small group with actions that appeared they had their own consciousness. The defied logic though, and were able to hop into the air and around them without need for solid ground, hovering and floating. The blonde girl smiled, pleased that her practice had paid off before she dissipated the little creatures. “That’s all I can do though… I also am unsure about my allegiance.”

She could feel Hyperion’s shock rock her body, and it quickly turned to anger, and then betrayal. She felt guilty, of course, the titan had be crucial to her survival since birth, but she could not just give up on humanity because of that. The titan inside of her was angry now, but surely after some time they could talk through it, Hyperion had always been reasonable and understanding, she was confident in that.
