A naturally kind hearted young man. He aids those in need and avoids unnecessary conflict, if possible...

⌈History⌋
Was born in a normal homestead, have a kind family, surrounded by kind neighbors, he never looked for a happier life than that, but that normal life started to bore him. He ventured to far into the forest and was met by a beast! He ran for his life, screaming for help. The beast chased him, pounced him and let him run again! It was playing a game out of him. It chased him far into the forest and his voice lost it strength. He got cornered! The beast raised its claws! and swung for the kill. Adrian closed his eyes out of fear and braced for the pain. He opened his eyes upon hearing the sound of metal clashing! and there his father was, with sword in his hands. The father tried to fight off the beast at the best of his abilities. He managed to drive it away, but not without sustaining a very deep wound. His father died thanking that his son was safe, on that day, he swore to protect others like how his father protected him.

⌈Bloodline⌋
Adrian's herculean strength was passed down from the bloodline known for their active participation in war and insane fighting style akin to a beast. They were spread out all over the land and even fought against their own kinds. Their power was known to be the cause of their insanity and their strength was directly proportional to it. After the great war, having lost their livelihood and enjoyment, they switched to farmworks as they found no battle as thrilling as war. Even now, the bloodline known as the the bloodline of the Mad Fiend, remained spread out all over the land.

⌈Trivia⌋

Standing infront of the sink was Adrian. He was washing the dishes after stuffing himself on his meal and was unable to pay. "Hey kid, here's the last batch so get it done!" The owner said with a bit cheery voice. Putting down three rows of towering dishes. "Hah..." He sighed as he continued washing the dishes. Just before he finished the last plate, he heard a loud scream from the bar and immediately went out.

In there, drunk customers was molestering the barmaid. "Haha, come on! I'm just copping a feel, hehehe." One said as he clench his hands in a grabbing motion. "Yeah, hehehe. We're paying customers, let us have our fun." Another one said. The owner was hiding behind the counter. "Oh, dear. They're from the notorious pirate group, Skull Raid. We should just wait for them to leave." He said, his voice shaking. Adrian paid his words no heed and walked forward as he removed his hairnet and threw it to the side.

"Dear customers? You are bothering the others, so could you please leave?" He asked them as politely as possible.
"Huh?! What's that you brat?! Could you say that again?! I couldn't hear it quite clear!" He said in an intidimating voice.
"Like I said, could you-" He was cut short.
"Huuuh?!! Speak in a louder voice you brat!" The man shouted at him louder.
"Like I-" He was cut of yet again, starting to lose his patience.
"Huuuuuuuh?!!!!! Piss off you brat!!!" He shouted at him even louder as he pokes his ear.

"......" Adrian remained silent for a moment. He already lost his patience and pulled back his fist, and opening it to palm. He striked the man under his jaw, sending him flying out of the window. His surprised companion immediately pulled out his pistol and pointed it at Adrian preparing to pull the trigger. Adrian simply striked it away off his hand, sending it rolling on the floor. The man clenched his hands and looked at him with a surprised expression. He ran out of the inn/bar and carried his downed companion away. "We'll get you for this, you brat!" He shouted at Adrian one last time.

The crowd cheered at him. Even the owner seemed happy. "Hahaha, thanks ma boy! For driving those guys away!" He happily shook Adrian's hands. "Hahaha, is it okay? I broke your window and they might take revenge on this place." Adrian asked worriedly. "Hahaha not a problem about that window, and those guys are very presistent about taking revenge on those who offended them so I'm sure they'll be coming just for you!" He laughed again. "I-I see... Ha-ha-ha." Adrian awkwardly laughed.

(Those pirates might become part of the plot.)

Delta poked the unconscious white haired man before following Snowe inside. Like a small child, Apollo gripped the back of her shirt. It had to be a tad bit amusing because he towered over her, but her was trying to hide behind her. She looked over at the boy in the middle of the crowd, her violet eyes meeting his black eyes for a split second. Looking away quickly, she wandered over to Snowe, who was saying something about vodka to the barmaid. Delta did the math in her head; if Snowe looked to be about 17, then in reality she must've been close to 904 years old? That was her guess anyways.

"Pirates and mercenaries," she mused to herself. It was possible they could be remnants of the White Clan. The man's hair had been white, which was Delta's original hair color. She shrugged, coming up to stand next to Snowe, "You know the names of those pirates?"

The barmaid's eyes flickered over to Delta, "Don't get in their way little girl, you'll only get hurt."

Apollo sighed and restrained Delta as she started yelling about how she wasn't a little girl and blah, blah, blah... The woman back up a bit until Apollo had calmed Delta down. When he finally let go of her, she scowled at the woman, I'll have you know I am seventeen years old and very capable of handling myself."

"I'm sorry," the woman muttered. "Don't know much about the pirates, but I do know that their captain calls 'imself the "Silver Eye"."

Adrian looked at the three new customers through the crowd. The little girl of the group looked at him in the eyes for a moment and looked away. With his superior strength, he managed to get out of the crowd and it finally died down.

The owner walked up to him and motioned him to open his palm. "Here boy! You can have a room for a night! its my way of thanks!" He said as he placed a room key on his palm. Adrian happily shook the owner's hands. "Thank you very much! I was just looking for a place to stay! and without money I would have slept on the road!" He said almost in the verge of tears. He was startled by the loud shouting of the little girl he saw a while ago. He was surprised to hear that she was of the same age as him!

He walked over to the group. "Hello! I'm sorry for the trouble a bit while ago, I hope it didn't bothered any of you." He apologized as he cheerfully smiled at them.

"I regret to say that you and your sister have come at a rather bad time, as is probably apparent by the recent shenanigans," Snowe emitted, smiling grimly. She tilted her head inquisitively. "By the lack of resemblance, I assume your sworn siblings, and not blood relatives. Ahh, but that isn't really my business, now is it?"

The conversation was interrupted by a human boy, no older than seventeen years of age. He apologized for the earlier trouble, smiling cheerfully. Snowe wasn't quite sure why, but such cheerfulness grated on her nerves at the moment. "I'm not too bothered by it," she sighed, "unfortunately, I'm accustomed to far worse discord than that." She seemed to catch herself at something and shook her head. "It really isn't your fault, anyway, boy. These people are from Bekta, and have absolutely no regard for rules."

"Oh, and speaking of discord..." she started looking over at the lavender haired girl, "Delta, could I see the book I gave to you earlier? It's important, but not secret... at least, it shouldn't be."

"To read it, of course, my dear," replied Snowe matter of factly as she stroked the book's cover, "this here is a one-of-kind volume written by Lady Memory herself. Gather round, children, and I shall teach you of things long since erased in your histories."

Snowe opened the book, flipping slowly through the pages as she explained its contents aloud. The handwritten text was faded and torn in many places.

"        Father Time (Chronos): The first of the Ten and of the dragons, Chronos, is the Keeper of Time. Though he has the power to manipulate time, his duty is to keep it flowing at a steady pace and prevent paradoxes. He has very little direct role in the worlds.

·        Mother Space (Maria): Maria is the second-born of the Ten and is the Keeper of the Universe as well as the first vilgenus. Her duty is to create and destroy worlds throughout space and help control the Balance of the Scales.

·        Discord (Loki): First of the tricksters and Keeper of Chaos, Loki presides over the Negatives of the Universe. He is known for creating mischief and instigating trouble in the worlds. Despite this, he is not evil.

·        Solace (Onari): Onari presides over the Positives of the Universe and is the first of the sil. Rather than take matters into her own hands, she often inspires goodness and bravery throughout the worlds. She and Loki have been rivals from the beginning of time, but harbor no hatred for each other.

·        Brother Darkness (Ta'kal): Keeper of the Night, Ta'kal is the first of the makora. He aids Father Time by bringing night to the Worlds, and Mother Space by extinguishing dying stars.

·        Sister Light (Akari): She is the Keeper of the Day and the first of the elves. She assists father time by bringing day to the Worlds, and Mother Space by giving light to the stars.

·        Reaper (Orbis): The first of the Angels and the Keeper of the Veil. Though Life and Death are often viewed as separate entities, they are one in the same. He is often seen in the form of one-winged twin angels- one in black and the other in white.

·        Emotion (Raimei): Raimei is the first human and taught all races of happiness, sorrow, and anger. She tends to play a higher direct role in the Worlds than many of the other Ten.

·        Lady Fate (Helena): Helena is the Keeper of Red Strings and the first fayde. She weaves the threads of fate into a web that spans throughout the universe and is easily angered when they are tampered with. Because of this, she is often at odds with Emotion and Lady Memory.

...But the pages regarding Lady Memory are mysteriously absent. All that is left is a note scrawled on the back cover. It is written in Reith, the tongue of my people. It simply says... 'We never claimed to be gods...."

"W-Woah!" Adrian was gotten by surprise by the sudden appearance and disappearance of the maid-ish person, but it immediately changed to a look of awe, acting like a country bumpkin he is. Technology is still quite uncommon for him. "So cool! How did you do that little girl?! Is it that bracelet?! Is she inside there? Are there other things you have in there? Where did you got that? can I touch it?" Adrian asked her in succession as he points his finger on the bracelet and is urged to push a button. Already forgetting the fact that she doesn't like being called little or short, and she being of the same age as him. He was not quite as interested in the book as much as he is interested on the bracelet.

Snowe shrugged and handed the book back to Delta. "Aren't you curious about the implications of the note?" she asked, placing her knuckle on her lips, "I propose we travel to each of the temples. I believe there's something that every other Seeker missed... There is a passage within the tome that speaks of fragments of a 'key'. It suggests that each temple has one."

Snowe put her hands behind her head and leaned back a bit in her chair. "Of course, each of you may do what you will with this information. However, I cannot promise we won't end up on opposite ends of each other's blades, should we choose to part ways," Snowe paused and looked to Asha and Ayara, "Ah, forgive me, I am merely assuming you are Seekers. If not, you need not worry yourselves."

"Eeek! Sorry!" Adrian immediately pulled his hand back after her comment. Then he pondered for a moment. "Eh? Nano? Particle? Micro? Eh? What?" He thought, looking quite puzzled. Not having the slightest idea, he just shrugged it away with a content sigh. Relieved that he stopped thinking about it. After remembering the fact that he made the girl angry he started a silly attempt to explain himself. "O-oh yeah. You know, it's not all that bad being short. It is kinda cute and all, you know? And that's what make you unique! Your height suits you! Being tall isn't all that better actually, if you're as tall as your friend there, you might hit a door frame and all..." He explained, starting to have a bit of cold sweats, his face turned stiff.

There were too many dimwits around for Asha's comfort. The human hadn't spoken a whole lot, and as per usual it was her sister who made the attempt to start a conversation with one of the less... obnoxious patrons, to which Asha only nodded briefly when her name was mentioned before resuming her silent drinking.

The surgeon only looked up from her glass and took actual interest in the conversation when a peculiar looking tome was handed to the Rengeku. It looked old, very old. The kind of old that you wouldn't even find in the darkest corners of a library. Shifting a little to face the Rengeku, Asha pitched in to listen as some of the pages were read aloud.

Likewise, Ayara listened carefully to the passage being read from the tome. Much of it she and Asha had already been taught, but the missing pages regarding Lady Memory were quite... intriguing, to say the least. We never claimed to be gods? It sounded so ominous.

Sadly, many of the others present didn't have the sense to pay attention, and would rather disregard the importance of such an old tome. One of them was gooing over a shiny technological bauble, and another did not seem to fully comprehend what the note could mean.

"You would be better off not taking the gods so lightly." Ayara warned the lavender-haired girl. "Many's the mortal that has done just that, only for it to result in their undoing."

"What my sister means is that some of us are actually interested in this sort of thing." Asha growled. "So if you brats could bugger off and practice your idiocy elsewhere, that'd be great. Otherwise, shut your gums and listen. You might learn a thing or two." She shot the three young ones an angry glare, before turning back to the conversation at hand.

The Nilarian nodded in wholehearted agreement before directing her attention back to the Rengeku. "Seekers, you say? Well, we aren't, but you certainly have our interest. I assume it would make sense to begin our investigations at Lady Memory's temple, yes? We can begin travel at first light tomorrow morning."

Apollo listened to the conversations carefully. He couldn't help but chuckle when one of the girls claimed their "idiocy". He knew for a fact that Delta could walk circles around these two. Sure, one of them was a scholar, but Delta was the first human to accomplish Mana Storage. He looked over at Snowe, "The book is quite right. Delta told me the stories about the 'gods'; in fact, Lady Memory is her patron. However, they never did state they were gods. Right, Delta?"

Delta looked up from the book she had been examining with close detail as she took out a pair of special glasses she had created for closely examining things. "Well, yes. I have read over two thousand volumes, tomes, publications, and essays about the gods. They never truly claimed to be gods. Yes, they are immensely powerful- more so than any creature in the universe-but when something doesn't make sense, it is easiest to call it divine or to call it evil."

Apollo nodded in agreement with the lavender-haired girl. She put the glasses on, bringing the book closer to her face. The redhead turned to the boy, "Don't mind Delta. She has a bit of a temper."

There were a few moments of silence before Delta finally looked up from the book, "The page was torn out. Well, cut out, actually. If I had to guess, it was with a silver tipped blade, about half a millimeter thick and not made by anything on the next twenty planets over. Snowe, I do think we should visit all of the temples, but it might be best to check a bit more on the outer ones?"

Apollo simply smiled.

“Since we’re on Verelden already, I think we should stop by the Temple of Emotions first. It would be more efficient that way.,” Snowe began, “But each temple deserves an equal amount of attention. We won’t be able to just waltz out with the key fragments, there will be some sort of test for each of them.”

Snowe looked around at the group, gazing into each pair of eyes as if searching them for something. “Now, I must warn each of you that this journey is not for the faint of heart. Some of the places we will have to go to are VERY dangerous. I urge you to think it over tonight.”

A black-haired human man interrupted before Snowe could say anything else, “Are you going to be going to all of these temples? If so I would like to accompany you if permitted. I have...something around that area which I would like to take care of.”

Snowe’s eyes went wide as the man approached and rose colored heat bloomed on her cheeks. She cleared her throat in a poor attempt to regain her composure. “Y-yes. We will be going to all of the temples,” she replied shakily.

The man nodded his head and then began “That’s just what I was hoping to hear, my name is Zyperious. I mainly work as an engineer of sorts, and I have some things around a few of the temples I would like to take care of. Seeing how you are already heading that way I figure no better way to get there than help others along the way.”

Snowe folded her arms, “Well, then, Zyperious... I’m sure that as long as you can make yourself useful while you are with us that the others would not mind having you around.” She looked to Delta and Apollo, then at the Nilarian and her sister, as if for approval.

The two sisters watched as the lavender-haired girl blathered on about how many books she'd read about the gods. Anyone could tell she was being little more than a childish windbag, and by the time she was going on about a knife being only half a millimeter thick, they knew something was up. Didn't she know anything about measurements? Any material that thin would either fold like paper or snap like a dry leaf, especially silver. Odds are she was merely trying to sound intelligent, and failing at it.

At this point Asha was fed up with these kids more than anyone. With nothing more than a discontented sigh, the woman seized the opportunity to snatch the book from incompetent hands lest they continue their ridiculous theorizations that, quite frankly, made her head throb. "Here." Asha handed the book to her sister, knowing that she wouldn't make these illogical assumptions.

Ayara quickly thanked Asha, although she couldn't help but wince at the book's rough treatment, especially given the condition it was in. Time hadn't been kind to the tome, that much was certain. Carefully leafing through the pages, the Nilarian eventually found where the pages regarding Lady Memory had been removed. She frowned. Something was not quite right here...

"And?" Asha asked, leaning in to take a look at the pages, or lack thereof, herself.

"I'm trying to concentrate." Ayara blocked out any distractions and focused her attention on the pages. They had not been torn out by hand, nor had they been cut out by a knife or any sort of implement. She could sense something that still lingered where the pages had been removed. It was very faint, but it was still there...

"Magic," she said, after a time. "These pages have been removed by magical means. How or why, I don't know, but whoever did it failed to completely cover their tracks."

"Ahh, but perhaps those tracks were not meant to covered completely," Snowe said musingly, "but I suppose that is a question for another day. We should all be getting to bed." It had been dark for a while and it was getting late. If the party was going to start their journey first thing in the morning, they would need their rest.

After bidding everyone good night, the group had parted ways and headed into their respective rooms. Snowe lay curled up in her bed, holding her dragon companion close to her side. As usual, sleep did not come easily for Snowe, but, tonight, Noramir seemed to find that it eluded her as well.

"Snowe?" Noramir spoke to her in telepathy.

"Yes?" She replied.

"What happened when the dark-haired man spoke to you.. was something wrong?"

"It's… Complicated… He's not even supposed to be here…"

"Snowe…."

She sighed softly. "Noramir, do you know what a soulmate is?"

"I am.. familiar with the concept."

"Well, he and I met a very… very long time ago."

******************************************************


The next morning, Snowe stood at the front of the inn, waiting for the others. She gazed into the still dimly lit sky and she could already tell that it was going to be a long, hard day. There was a heaviness to the air. She felt as if she had lost something. Something very important. "I think our trial has already begun," she whispered, "this is going to be a lot harder than I thought..."
