Description

Image




Name: Ebba Seydel

Age: appears 19

Gender: Female

Race: Appears Human, real race unknown.

Height: 5'8"

Weight: 132lbs.

Appearance: Ebba wears a suit of blue and black colored armor, its origin and make are currently unknown. She wears a chest plate which exposed part of her midsection. The lower half of her body is covered by an armored skirt, it usually has a long cloth draped over it to cover a bit more of her body. On her arms, her left arm is covered by a metal gaunglet while her right arm has a sort of scabbard on top of it. On her forehead is a sort of headband with a horn on top of it. It shimmers with a brilliant blue aura.


Specialty

Equipment: She has three peices of gear, her armor, her forehead guard, and her sword. However all three items are possessed and are forever attached to her soul. The three go as followed:

The Armor- Celeste, the black and blue armor

The Sword- Supinity, A blood red greatsword.

The Headband- Lazarus, the horned headband.

Strengths: Despite her rather timid appearance and shy personality. She is highly proficient to in both physical and magical prowess. Her strength is surprising and she also uses a variety of ice magic. However, she is like a untrained warrior wearing expertly crafted gear. She is strong but does not know how to use it well.

Abilities: Although not an ability she can usually control herself, her own body can be possessed by one of three spirits. This usually happens if the host is in danger or if the host shows weakness and one can easily take over. The spirits can also affect her personality when not controlling her. The 'influencing' spirit has different effects.

Celeste- If 'Celeste' takes over her body, her armor changes out into a full bodied scarlet uniform and her sword becomes wider and sharper. Her influence of Ebba's personality turns her into a more calmer, more disciplined person. Her posture and stance becomes well improved as a result, specializing in more defensive strikes

Supinity- If 'Supinity' takes over her body, she loses parts of her armor and it grows scarlet. Her sword also becomes a spear. Her influence of Ebba's personality turns her more straightforward, more brave, more outward but ultimately more irritable and slightly more aggressive. Her skills with a sword become more violent and aggressive, usually keeping close to an enemy to continue to strike.

Lazarus- If 'Lazarus' takes control of her body, her armor changes into a more graceful armor. Her weapon also turns into a small but beautiful sword. Her influence of Ebba's personality makes her more friendly, more composed and more helping. Her magical abilities also grow more specialized as well.


Personality

At the heart of all the influencing spirits, and possessions lay a timid, shy, quiet and a bit cowardly of a young woman. She dislikes social situations, gets embarrassed easily, gets depressed easily, and can't control her emotions very well. If she is happy she really shows it, if she is sad she will cry uncontrollably. In truth she relays a tiny bit on her other personalities to shape her, as they rely on her to manifest into the real world.



Bio

◤◥
The girl known as Ebba was not born from love, nor out of hatred. She was born from three pieces of equipment that long wished for anyone to claim them. The girl was at first lonely, she could not even hear the voices of the weapons over the blistering cold of her home planet.

Soon her own spirit and soul connected to the equipment she wore, the only comfort from her loneliness. As much as she disliked them, she also liked them. Their bickering through the frozen wastes assured her that she had something near her, but at nights she disliked being persuaded to lending her own body. Even so, the equipment and the spirits inside them relied on her as much as she relied on the, to guide her.
◣◢



Additional Information

The three possessed equipment each have their own varied personalities and skills. However they do not get along very well since their personalities and interest in possessing their hosts body conflict with each other. As such when one does posses the body, usually it's either a fight when their host in a weak state, or if she truly decides to call on one of them.

Also every time she falls asleep, she will always arrive in a sort of dreamscape with the three spirits. It's usually not threatening, however they may try to convince her to let them take over for the next thing, or are training her themselves until she eventually wakes up.




Image

The Armor- Celeste

Skills- Celeste embodying the spirit of an armor, she is both tough and strong. Although slow she is a defensive fighter, only ensuring her host's safety above beating the enemy. She has no means of magic but has defense against them.

Personality: Diciplined and calm, very rarely changing her expression during combat. She is the most protective of Ebba being her armor and thus her saving lifeline. Usually always the one to appear if Ebba is in danger. She is however always trying to train Ebba herself to defend herself during her dreamscape.



Image
The Sword- Supinity

Skills- Supinity embodying the spirit of the sword is both fast and deadly. Despite having much less defense she more than makes up for it with brutal offense and even rage and adrenaline spells.

Personality: Pushy, aggressive, and a little bit of a sadist. Supinity is the most her when in battle. A smile on her face to enjoy being the one to cut her enemies. Though due to her personality she puts Ebba in the most danger, however in another way she keeps her the most safe by eliminating everyone who poses a remote threat to Ebba. In the dreamscape she is very persistent to be 'let out' once in awhile or even spars with Ebba.





Image
Lazarus- The Headband

Skills- Lazuras, embodying the powers of a magical item is more tricky and smart. Not having the offensive powers of the sword or the defensive powers of the armor she makes up for this by being able to use advanced magic and take flight.

Personality: Friendly, Helpful, Kind. Lazuras is the most kind of the equipment. In battle she keeps her distance using spells, and avoiding contact with the enemy at all costs. She also cares for Ebba's safety. However her good nature ends up pushing Ebba to help people out, especially if they are in danger. She usually appears only if Ebba cannot help save another's life and will take over to save them herself. In the dreamscape, she is usually more reserved but will train Ebba in the use of magic, but like the others she would like to be free.

So begins...

"So much ash...so dirty...and so noisy..." A young woman whispered under her breath, almost afraid to attract the attention of the flies around the area. The ground was caked in ash and debree, in the distance there were large vehicles moving about cleaning and fixing the city. The noise they made the entire atmosphere which seemed quiet and peaceful into an industrial zone. The sounds of wheels running across the ground, the sound of metal ramming into buildings causing them to crash...the faint yelling of people...it was noisy...

The garden seemed empty, at least from what the woman could see. She was tired, many buildings seemed to be out of order. She did not mind, it was peaceful outside where there weren't many people. Tucking herself into a nearby bush that seemed mostly clear of ash, she curled into a small ball and tried to drift to sleep...'try' being the keyword due to all the noise the machines were making, and the voices now entering her ears.

"Ebba, this does not seem to be the best spot to sleep. Exposed to the elements, and you cant tell if someone is sneaking up on you." A feminine voice sounded in her ears, what sounded like a well trained soldier, stern but kind at the same time. No one else would hear this voice, only the young girl resting in a bush.

"But...all the ho...hootl...hotelis...hotels are not standing...and...all the big explosions...kept me awake..." Ebba spoke to the voice despite no one around her.

"But at least we should---" "Try something else. Its morning, daytime! Plenty of time to train! Why sleep? If someone sneaks on you...Your gone! At this rate we can ensure no one sneaks on you and we can make sure your more fit!" A second voice proudly interrupted. The voice was energetic, exited, but again no one else could hear the voice.


"Train?...M-Maybe later...what if someone came around?...A-And I am also tired..." Ebba again pleaded with the voices.

"Let poor Ebba sleep for now. We can easily watch over her while she does, if she is tired let her sleep, we can just train in the dreamscape." A third voice spoke, a calm and friendly voice. But as the other two...no one could hear it...

"Lazarus, you know full well that we cant baby her like this. Ebba needs to learn how to do some things herself."

"But do keep in mind that we are part of her ourselves, so in a sense she is taking care of herself using what she has at her disposal."

"But...Never mind, you have me beat there."

"Yeah! We can just train while she sleeps. She gets rested and we still have fun!"

"Only you are having fun, I am making sure she gains the skills instead of being your practice dummy."

"What did you say? You want a piece of me again!?"

"You know full well that I will gladly challenge you..."

"Enough you two...Ebba is sleeping now. Continue your bickering in the dreamscape so you don't wake her up. You are free to argue when you do."

Eventually the three voices seemed to fade away, leaving the girl alone in a bush. Sleeping peacefully.

Walking through the gardens, Elliot Alderson came across a bench, sitting down on it. He looked around, pondering the meaning of Life itself. With Wing City getting attacked almost every day, he'd thought about making plans to go off-world, maybe find a place to settle down, get a new job and such.

Just then, Elliot's phone buzzed. He answered it.

Hello? Who's this?
Elliot asked.

Hello sir. We're from the National Bank of Terra and we're having some problems with you account. Could yo-
The caller said in a Robotic voice. Elliot knew it was another of these cold callers that tried to get your Bank details and steal your money. He ended the call, blocked the number from his phone and stretched out on the bench.

Just then, he noticed some rustling from a bush. He got up, walked to the bush and pulled the leaves away. Inside it was a young woman. Elliot looked around. There wasn't a single person in the garden except him and the young woman.

Ma'am, are you alright? If you're hurt, I can call an ambulance.
Elliot asked the young woman, hoping she was alive.

The woman stirred as the mans words reached her. She mumbled a bit in her sleep but evidently this shown the man that she was indeed alive. "I...hear another voice...I'll...be back..." She mumbled in her sleep. She was probaly having a dream.

However the mans voice seemed to stir her from her slumber and slowly sat up, rubbing her eyes rather meekly. "Am...bur...ance? What's an Amburance?..." Ebba asked almost whispering the words. However once her eyes opened, those dark red eyes looked at the man directly. And once those eyes made contact her sleepiness turned more into a small bit of cowardice and nerviousness.

In response to the mans presence, Ebba scooted away from him, using the bush in the vain hope it would turn to concrete and hide her form. Unfortanantly for her, the bush remained its usual leafy self and she hid only parts of her figure but did not hide herself very well. Almost like a child thinking she was invisible behind a leaf, it was clear she was not used to interacting with people. Even more so her face was flushed red. "Person...C-Can I...help?..." She slowly uttered the words, her normal whisper like voice was on the border of growing more quiet and more loud.

However the mans voice was not the only thing she was hearing. The one voice always quick to react.

"Remain calm, I shall assist in a minute." The stern but calm voice spoke only to her. She was actually nervious about this. "Ok...Just assist...no intervine...Thank...Celeste..." She muttered the last part under her breath. However it made it look like she was venting out her nerviousness by talking to the ground. In a sense she was.

Elliot watched as the woman slowly sat up, then asking what an "Amburance" was.

Great.... another off-worlder. Just what Wing City need.
Elliot thought as he watched the woman scoot away from him, trying to use the bush as a hiding spot.

As she asked if Elliot could help, Elliot knew that this person wasn't normal. Hell, Wing City was full of different races, species and genders, but some people were more different. Elliot noticed that the woman was talking to the ground. Thinking she was confused, Elliot walked up to her and held out his hand in a "Let me help you up" gesture.

I think we've gotten off on an awful start. I'm Elliot. Elliot Alderson. And you are?
Elliot asked, hoping that this lady would be friendly and such.

Ebba flushed even more red as Elliot held out his hand for her. Not wanting to be mean, she apprehensively reached out, hesitated for a bit but eventually took his hand and slowly got back up.

He exchanged his name, Elliot...That was this persons name. She seemed to calm down, albeit very slightly. "Ebba...Ebba Seydel... she gave out her name. Her posture was a little slouched, hands still hiding her cheeks. She was getting used to interacting with a new person, but he seemed nice...the people in the uniforms intimidated her so much...and they were all over the street and they carried strange things on their shoulders. He was a little less scary, he had no big scary thing that looked dangerious.

Of course, little by little she seemed to stand a bit straighter, and her rather meek appearance was slowly fading away. Her hands soon stopped covering part of her face and she seemed to calm down a bit. She was still very nervious, but it seemed that something was influencing her. Perhaps she warmed up to the man enough to let go of her concerns for now.

Elliot listened as he learnt the woman's name. Ebba Seydel? Seems like a odd choice of birthname. But then again, people had different names.

So Ebba, if you don't mind me asking, where are you from? I've not seen anyone like you before.
Elliot asked Ebba, wondering if Ebba was from another world. But since many people lived in different places, that didn't matter.

However, life for Elliot was to take another odd turn...

A portal opened up into the Garden and out of it, stepped a man with 3 eyes, a ukelele and a Uzi 9mm. He fired into the portal, as if he was directly attempting to kill something. Suddenly, a giant tentacle emerged from the portal and lunged for Alto Clef. Clef jumped back as the tentacle landed near him.

Fuck! This thing is impossible to kill! And I thought Jack would've ended up with this fucking giant monster.
Clef said as he fired his last round of 9mm ammo into the tentacle, with no or damage seeming to occur to the tentacle.

Noticing Ebba and Elliot in the background, Clef called out to them.
Hey! You two! Can you lend me a hand with killing this monster before it gets through this portal?
Clef shouted, hoping that the two would lend a hand with killing Cthulhu.

The sound of gunfire brought the attention of a group of small hip-sized bugs each over intervening walls from surrounding areas of the gardens. They blended in quote well with their skin full of active camouflage. However when they saw a portal sprouting tentacles there was a short RF blast as Smudgie and his brothers alerted a threat. The others remained watching on high walls as Smudgie moved in closer being the best at employing their skin densely packed with chromatophores under fast motion. Smudgie's rapt attention ignited small fires around him as he darted to and fro nearby staring intently at the portal.

After a moment Smudgie's high strung and sometimes screamy voice emerged from a RF transceiver on a harness anchored around one shoulder, "A THreat! WE ARE hERe fixing thE GARDens! Who ArE YOU?"

As Smudgie tip-tapped closer he saw the False Matriarch lying there on the ground close to a threat. Eyes dilate wide as a subconscious directive fires in his brain to protect the Matriarchy. Antenna go pin straight as another RF transmission goes out encrypted in their quietus' language organic one-time-pad. ((Protect a False Matriarch! [Image of Ebba] [Location]))

From all directions sounds emerge of large insect-like bodies moving and heavy weapons being loaded. Momentary presences of brownish-red bodies crawling over intervening walls are seen as they surmount them to organize their forces. The sounds of boulders being dropped or tossed aside becomes frequent then stops.

"Where I am from...Actually, I called it Very Cold Place...It had no name, and I was the only one on it...It was kinda quiet, and very windy and cold..." Ebba replied idly tapping her fingers together.

However her day went scary for her as a portal opened up and a man with three eyes jumped out, using a strange thing in his hands and shot at a tenctacle. She did not run the opposit direction thanks to the influence on her personality, but she was nervous.

Ebba placed her hand over her right arm, the armor soon began to open up revealing a red glow. Soon she pulled out a red great sword."Supinity...please help me out..." She whispered to herself as she got in a surprisingly well maintained stance. Front foot forward, back straight, she did not leave much openings in her stance. "Don't worry sir...I can...help...I think..." She did her best to call out, but it might have well been someone normally speaking.

Of course the mass of sounds all around her seemed to unnerve her more...so noisy and scary...

"Pssst! Hey! Hey! Coast is clear sunshine. There is no giant creature around you so quit cowering with your eyes closed!" A voice tinged with a bit of irritation spoke to a timid looking woman who was curled into a ball with her hands over her head. Wearing a black and blue armor with strips of fur around her shoulders and hip. She remained shaking in her ball until she eventually gained the courage to look around. "Told you sunshine. No beast around... although I would have loved to fight it if you did not chicken out at the end... The voice muttered the last part so she did not hear.

Looking around, the woman noticed a beautiful garden. It was...peaceful. No signs of those tall people wearing those strange clothes and having strange things on their shoulders and big moving metal boxes. No ash on the ground either, just a garden...a peaceful looking garden..."It really is a beautiful place...I think you should be safe here Ebba. Even so, we have your back." A more gentle voice spoke to the woman who was busy eying all the small pretty flowers.

Looking at a small red flower, she eyed it with curiosity. "Is this...an Amburance?..." The woman questioned herself. The poor girl mistook the word Ambulance for Amburance, and now she thought it was the flower before her. "That...could be an Amburance. We never seen much besides the snow so this is like our own personal treasure hunt." The gentle voice seemed to agree with the woman who gave a small smile at her 'discovery'

However once she looked around again, she noticed that she was not alone. She noticed the movement of other people in the distance but more catching was a young woman looking at something and drinking some sort of liquid. Her meekness soon made itself apparent as she hid herself in a nearby bush and was hoping no one would notice her. She even thought she became one with the bush. "Ebba...why are we hiding in a bush? I don't exactly see any danger around..." A third voice made itself known. With a calm and disciplined tone.

"People here...less scary than strange looking people with metal boxes...but...I'm nervous..."The young woman timidly spoke as she kept to her hiding spot.

Lucy mumbles to herself:
Why am I still drinking this? There's too much spice in my drink. Am I becoming addicted or am I just tired...
The warrior sighs now rubbing her wounded head.
More plebs are gaining access over armour and weapons people like me would WISH to have! I swear if that mage becomes one of them...
Lucy became attached to her book once again. Lucy heard some rustling of bushes nearby so she looked around for a bit only to not notice anything so she went back to reading.

Ebba would look at the strange thing the girl seemed to be looking at. What was that she had in her hands? She was curious yet too shy to walk over and ask. Maybe...maybe she could sneak a glance if she walked very quietly and peered behind her?

Trying to be brave, Ebba carefully left the bushes and began to carefully walk over without making too much noise. "This is actually kinda funny and cool in a way. She is actually brave enough to sneak behind someone to find out what they have!" The voice laughed in her head.

"Hush now! This might actually be good practice. To get around without being noticed!" The other voice replied.

"Who needs to sneak around? Let's just march right up and see what she has! Ain't no harm in actually walking up. And in a fight sneaking is not going to help stab people!"

"At least she is learning a skill to avoid having to get in situation where something is trying to kill her! So I suggest you hush now. You only know so much because of how tiny your brain is."

"And at least I ain't have a stick jammed up in my body! How about I jam another stick in you! One with a pointy end!"

"Quiet both of you!..." Ebba raised her voice as she softly held her hands to her head before using them to cover her mouth. In an instant she grabbed a handful of leaves on the ground, crouched down and tried in vain to look like a pile of leaves.

Besides those people don't even know how to handle weaponry like that so they are just going to recklessly wave it around like a play toy and yet they get an easy win just for having better equipment.
Lucy then stops to take a sip of her drink after groaning to herself only to carry on.
Perhaps I should step up my game and show them that having good equipment isn't everything. Strategy matters too as well as knowing what to do. Once I travel through this ash and snow back to my kingdom I should head to training and-


Lucy was then shaken by a nearby voice. There was several people in the garden already though most are by themselves having tea, Lucy included, thus you could almost hear the environment more than anything else so even a mildly loud voice can be heard by some of the people here. The warrior turned around to see the source only to see a crouching, somewhat shaky women with a pile of leaves around her. The women to Lucy's surprise was wearing armour very similar to those of her opposite kingdom (black and blue is common for that kingdom), though still having a terrible taste from her previous war; She tried not to discriminate against the woman.
Oi! I know the weather is terrible for both of us but I don't want any trouble from the Dark Kingdom, okay?
Lucy said rather sternly but somewhat polite, well, as politely as she can.

Ebba shrieked in surprise as the voice that called out was directed in her direction. Which resulted in her tossing the leaves in the air and using her hands to hide her face."D-Dark...Kingcone...I-I-I Don't know that..." She panicked as her voice faltered and she instinctively hid her face behind her hands.

She was terrified, she did not know this Dark Kingcone. All she wanted was to peer at the strange thing in her hands. And now someone besides the voice was sternly speaking to her. "P-P-Please!...Don't hurt me...I-I don't wanna be hurt...So scared... The poor girl began to shake as her voice continued to shrink and she herself looked like she was getting smaller. But in reality she was just curling into a shaking ball to make herself seem smaller.

"Hey! You aren't just going to sit there and take that! Do something!" The furious voice spoke to her in her head which only resulted in her becoming even more scared.

"You muscle for brains! Now she is much more scared! Maybe think before you act!...Oh wait you never think you idiot!" The other voice called out in her head.

"That tears it! I'm going to beat you up right here and now!"

"Silence both of you! For once just keep your mouths closed while I fix this situation." The gentle like voice spoke and began to help the girl. "There...there...Just take easy deep breaths...meeting new people is scary, but you can do it Ebba. Just ignore the two rowdy people in your head and you can do it by yourself. We will help you, but for now you can do it."

And with that, the girls shaking grew less and less. But she did not remove her hands from her face. She was still terrified but those words did give her some encouragement. As for the other two voices they seemed to fade along with the third voice.

Cast from realms beyond Terra came a being of molten flair and resolute direction. They descended rapidly into the gardens, slowing only when they neared the ground to stand. They appeared as some sort of burning angel though the fires of their wings bore no heat and their helmet-clad head cast no judgement on the scene before them. They paid no mind to those who already existed, instead taking but a few steps away and settling down onto the floor on their knees with their head tilted downwards and hands clasped together.

And then they spoke in a voice that boomed and echoed though not so loudly as to harm and not externally either, but in the minds of any who were open to its voice;
"Powers above have tasked me with serving as Adjudicator, to ensure within this city that a fair and even electoral event occurs. As within my rights and power to do so, I will seek within the city those who have the will, want and ability to lead this city as its mayor, and once found they shall enter as candidates."

And then he fell silent, energy gravitating inwards and outwards from the being, spreading far from the gardens and over its many districts as he sought to find those who would wish to be Wing City Mayor.

"Oh...This place seems quiet enough I guess...We met a few people already and they were all strange...they talked for a bit then they just go away...so weird...are people in big places like this always strange?..." A young woman spoke to herself as she sat down inside a bush. She was admiring a red flower to which she thought was an Amberlamps, of course the man that said this meant Ambulance, but she mistook it as a flower she saw when she was trying to rest.

"Eh...People are always strange. So far at least no one is harming you...Even though I wanna get into a few scraps once in a while..." a voice whispered the last part so the others did not hear. Of course only this woman would hear the voice.

"Well as far as I'm concerned, this place seems safe enough for training. And to rest. As long as no one attacks us, and all we get are just strange people talking to her. Then its fine." Another voice spoke up.

The bush was quiet, it did not quite hide her very well of course but as far as the woman was concerned. It hid her well enough, and the spot was quiet. She just sat there, in her own little bubble for now.

Teddy had walked a good ways in the path of the park. His mind drifting here-and-there, but mostly about his past enemies: From a prehensile-haired enchantress who wrenched his heart out a few times in a very unpleasant emotional control that he had to want to break free from, to an incarnation of the latent rage in his mind that was the sole reason he had lost his dark powers, to a man who used a suit of battle armor. He continued thinking of his past battles, but then returning to his greatest battle yet, the struggles of living without his beloved ones.

He walks further on his way, it was only out of the corner of his eye that he had noticed the strange woman clad in even stranger clothing hiding behind the bush. He stops and turns his eyes toward her, trying to maintain subtlety. It seems as though the lass hadn't noticed him. He attempts to sink out of visibility within the surrounding plants, circling around the woman. He silently skulks and lurks, getting closer to the woman without making a noise. He slips up next to her and taps a finger upon her shoulder.

"Excuse me, madam," he begins in a voice out to gather information, "But why are you hiding? Isn't the point of cosplaying to show off your costume?"

"I wonder why people call this flower an Amburance?...Its strange...I think people called strange metal boxes Amburance's as well...Maybe the flower grows into those metal boxes..." The woman spoke to herself as she suddenly felt something tap her shoulder.

Letting out a quiet yelp of surprise, the woman quickly turned around and used both hers hands to cover parts of her face like some sort of barrier to protect herself. "Cross...playing?...I don't know what Crossplay is...And...this...is...my...Outfit I...always wear..." The woman spoke as her voice slowly got quieter and quieter. Her body shaking a little bit. Another strange person, its like he appeared from the leaves itself.

"Aren't you supposed to be paying attention to her surroundings! A voice spoke angrily in her head.


"Excuse me, but I don't recall only me watching over her all the time." Another voice replied firmly back.


"Bah! For a spirit of armor you sure suck at keeping the person 'safe'"


"Then perhaps I should beat some sense into that empty head of yours!"

With the argument in her head and the strange man, the woman began to shrink into a ball. But she still looked at the unknown guy that got her attention.

"Cosplaying," Teddy corrected, "When people dress as fictional characters."

He paused a bit, looking upon the woman a bit. He felt something off about her, but he could not tell what or why. What he did know, however, was that this woman seemed to look as though she come from a warrior culture of some sort, or so he thought. She had armor and was armed. He really couldn't settle his curiosity by putting it aside. "You seem to be a sheltered individual," he points out, "That, or you must be from a culture alien to us."

He looks and inspects her person, if she was from a warrior culture like he thought, then they don't seem to pick their soldiers very well. The woman was very, very timid.

"Well...I grew up on a really cold place...And there was no buildings...And..no other person...Just me...and...I don't think...I'm Cosplaying..." The woman replied as she continued to hide her face. The arguments did not help her one bit though.

"Screw you Celeste! I'll flatten you with my spear!" The more angry voice shouted in her head.

"You can try Supine..." The other voice replied with a scoff.

"Enough again! Can't you see Ebba is terrified right now? Quit your arguing." A third voice spoke up. It was more calm, and more friendly compared to the two.

The voices in her mind ceased for the moment and simply began to fade away for the time being. As the argument stopped, her shaking became less apparent, but she was still shaking in the end. "S-So...What's Picktual?...And...I never heard of an alien before..." She replied with a shaky and quiet voice. Thankfully her voice was not randomly getting quieter as she spoke.

"Whoa..." Teddy replied, with a hint of odd amazement in his voice, "If that is the case, you have a lot of learning to do."

He looks at her for a while, she seemed to be warming up a bit. He knew he couldn't just leave her based on what she had told him, she looked inconspicuous, albeit outlandishly dressed, but what if she gained the power to level whole cities somehow? He witnessed this way too many times to not know the consequences. Her safety and the welfare of society depended on who taught her what society was like... as far as he knew.

"Do you at least have parents?" He asked, despite the woman telling him she was alone, his eyes slightly widening and trying to push the coldness out of his voice, "Or a name for that matter?"

"W-Well...I don't have any parents if its a mom or dad...but I do have...family in a....sense...But M-My name is Ebba Seydel..." Ebba spoke as she just slightly moved her hands from her face. She was warming up to the man as a nice person, but ultimately he was still a stranger.

Now that her hands were slightly away from her face, he could see her eyes now. Although that was about all he could see right now.

"My name is Theodore Ursa," said to introduce himself, "My former friends and enemies, simply call me, 'Teddy.' I can't say what it is like to be in your position, but I am probably in a bad fix right now."

He looked away a bit, bracing himself for telling the tale he was about to give, "You see, I messed up. I had done an act of arrogance, and I had created a bigger mess than I had tried to clean up. I had been banished from my home, separated from my friends, and my mother had even disowned me..."

He looked away further, but then turns back to her, that coldness returning to his eyes which had softened a tad when he looked away. "You are lucky," he begins, "You have a family, in whatever form it may appear in, but I lost everything. But... I must say, I really do not think that I need anyone else."

He smiles slightly, but he had faked it, as he had only lied to himself.

"O-Oh...I see...W-Well..For um..." She began to counter her fingers. She soon countered her fingers nineteen times, of course she did it while hiding most of her face behind them. "U-Um...They said its that many years...I never seen any other person...or structure...just plenty of snow...and it was very cold...and they could not comfort me without anything other than words...Then...I found something strange and came here...in this strange place with all the strange people...so noisy..." Ebba spoke.

She did not know what most of what the man in front of her said, but it seemed like it may have been bad..."M-My family argue lots of times...it scares me when they do...Their voices get very loud...A-And they begin to fight with...weapons at certain points...they yell mean things and...the third of my f-family...has to break it up...B-But I like them at other t-times...They comfort me...and make me f-feel not a-alone even though I a-am alone...b-but...I-I think you are b-brave even though you lo-lost everything..." Ebba spoke timidly.

Were these imaginary friends she was talking about? Teddy was somewhat confused by this. He probably wouldn't be able to talk to her family if they were just voices in his head. He was getting ready to ask a question, but when she called him brave, his cold expression turns to one teeter-tottering between hardening and softening, like he was conflicted.

"I am not brave," he returned while finally trying to evade eye contact again, it was hard to make out if he was offended, hurt, or both. He turned his eyes back to her, trying to dignify himself, but then seems to somewhat melt, "I am not brave," he repeated, "I was rash."
