Description

Image

Name: Ixa Snowfall Rixy

Age: Nine, probably. Is not sure, is a clone raised inside a lab. He can be more mature then his age though.

Appearance: (See image)

He often wears comfortable clothing, never tight. Sometimes, he might wear a sweatshirt without a shirt, and sometimes can forget small things like backpacks or wallets at wherever he calls home, or other things as well. But usually, he is decent (though sometimes he is just wearing a large, blue sweater it seems (in reference to the image used), it covers everything and usually there are shorts, just cannot be seen because the sweatshirt is over sized). The issue is, he only knows about life in the lab up until recently. So, he lacks normal people common sense. He likes the colors blue and white though.

Nicknames: Ix (Why? Do I really need a nickname when my name is already short?!), Frost, Subject 12 (Eleventh Clone)

History: Ixa was actually taken from an orphanage as a baby and utilized as a test subject to develop weapons using people with superpowers or other supernatural abilities as those weapons. And it was not just the painful bad kind, but the dark ones too. The experiments involved Ixa being opened up again and again, as one of the "Core Subjects" in their attempts to implant more powers and abilities into him. This hurt him extremely, but over time he got more powerful.

Originally, the scientists had taken Ixa because of his unique ability known as "Adaptability", which made him genetically able to accept and utilize all foreign tissue. However, he was not the only subject it turned out. One day, Subject XIII, the one who came after him, caused large scale destruction. This new power caused a huge amount of damage that let him escape, and caused the release of many other test subjects as well. What was surprising is that they all shared white hair and red eyes, and even their facial features were similar if not the same. Additionally, all had bar codes planted on them, mostly in the same place, under the left eye. Add then, they soon learned. Ixian, the youngest of them all and the one who released them all, was actually a clone using implanted memories from the first subject, and he was subject thirteen. The youngest of the clones. Ixa himself was the next youngest, Subject XII, and was under the same circumstances.

Outraged, the subjects wiped out the scientists, and then escaped into the world. They sort of keep in touch, but they often also lose track of each other. Supposedly, there is one brother however that is tracking all of them, because he was given a supernatural ability to do so.

Supernatural Abilities:

Lord of the Frost: Ixa can create ice, and freeze things willingly. He is completely immune to cold, but does not suffer from heat issues either. However, hot weather can bother him quite a bit. He can also manipulate and control all ice and snow around him, even if it is magically created by another. His ice however tends to be stronger then normal, and can be used for a variety of things. If he pours all his power into it, it could even stop attacks from orbit.

Enhanced Physical Abilities: Though not the best among the siblings, Ixa has advanced physical abilities.

Enhanced Senses: Ixa is capable of sensing things beyond the normal human ability.

Adaptability: Ixa's body is capable of utilizing and absorbing all foreign tissue without issue, regardless of the source. It may also hold other effects, but this was the main one utilized.

Spirit Guardian: Snowflake: Appears as a large, white wolf, his Spirit Guardian is not one to mess around with. It has a variety of abilities based on the snow and ice, and can also turn invisible quite easily. Is very strong, very tough, and very fast.

Danger Sense: Ixa can sense all danger heading his way, and a vague understanding of what it is.

Interface: Is able to remotely interface with all technology. It has better range then Ixian's Full Control which requires touch, and is not limited by a timer, however it is not an instant success and can be blocked or shut out.

IC Update: Blessing

After some events that took place in the southern region of the Sevrianna Continent, Ixa ended up reciecing a blessing from a power known as the Miracle Seed. As it continues to grow and be implimented by his adaptation, new powers will emerge. What has emerged so far is:

Snow/Ice Form: Ixa can freely transform his entire body into solid ice or solid snow. The ice is extremely thick and durable, and if shattered he can reform it back into his body. The snow is flexible and shifting, letting him change his size and shape while in it, but when he reforms returns to his original size and shape.

Deep Chill: Anything that touches Ixa's ice or snow will find themselves having their strength and energy drained and sapped as they develop intense frostbite.

Black Ice: Ixa can make his ice turn invisible.

Wolf Forms: Ixa can turn his body into a full wolf, or just partly/enhanced with Wolf (ears and tail are only things that appear physically, though he can also deploy claws).

Ages of Experience: Ixa had tons of combat experience downloaded into his brain, and can now fight even more effectively.

So begins...

Ixa Snowfall Rixy's Story

Ixa took a step into a new location, looking around as the sun shined down. A bustling marketplace, that had all sorts of businesses from entertainment, to food, to other things most would find boring but were new and interesting to Ixa. He had come to this city originally to hide, or to try and start fitting in with normal people, but was being completely engulfed by the new sights he had seen. After all, he had only known the secret, underground laboratory where he was raised and had brutal and inhumane science experiments performed on him. His heart was not actually his original heart, but a slightly altered heart of a three year old who had displayed strength that exceeded a normal adult.

Of course, Ixa himself now possessed that ability thanks to his one original power, "Adaptability", but instead of being depressed about all the lives lost to make him as powerful as he was, he and his fellow brothers had promised to move forward and live happy lives for them. Granted, they had also annihilated that lab and the scientists there from existence as revenge, but they felt that was justified.

"I wonder how the others are doing..."

Because of their unique traits, and the abilities they possessed that would make them stand out, they decided to split up for now. They would meet up every so often, but right now Ixa did not feel lonely anyways. Instead, he was enjoying the new sights he was encountering and the new things he was seeing.

At the same time however, he had managed to pick the pockets of five people. He actually did it twice, but the second time was to return their wallets after taking a portion of their money. As Ixa was actually a clone, an orphan, and was raised in a lab, if he did not do this he would die from starvation.

Speaking of which, he started looking for a place to eat.

William had sat on a bench towards the edge of the market square, having done some quick shopping, the plastic bag hung from his wrist, slouched over his elbows resting on his legs, he was clad in his everyday clothes: thick hoodie jumper, t-shirt, jeans, boots. what any nineteen years old would usually wear.

His headphones planted firmly over his ears as they blurted out music, the two ghosts that tended to follow him about, one a small child of indeterminate gender, who took the form of a sheet covered person with two little eye holes in the sheet, who sat next to William, their legs waving back and forth as they watched the bustling market. the other an elder gentleman in shirt and smart trousers with suspenders, dress shoes and yeah... you guessed it the man is a ghostly detective. even goes out his way to look the part.

"Mr Knox..." cut off before he could continue William spoke up "remember what I said..." the ghost sighed and turned to face William "Seer, do you see the odd child over there?"

William sat up drinking the energy drink can he was finishing off, he had to look around for the child but he spotted the residual aura of spiritual energies radiating from the nine years old and looked to the two ghosts. The child shrugged as it always did, but the detective crossed his arms expecting William 'Seer' Knox to be a good Samaritan.

"Fine...I'll investigate jeez" Will stood up pushing his hands off his knees in the process and wandered into the crowd.

Ixa was wandering through the crowd meanwhile, looking for a place to eat. Someplace outside, preferably. It was nice out today, and eating outside meant having a variety of escape options. So, he finally came across a place that looked like it would be nice to eat at. There was even a table open still. This made Ixa delighted. So, he moved in to take his seat...

"Get out of the way, brat! This seat is mine!"

Suddenly, he was shoved aside by a large muscular man. Ixa looked at the man with disdain and confusion, disdain because Ixa was trying to have a happy day and this guy was ruining it, as well as stealing his table, and confusion because even though he was tortured by scientists, brutally experimented on, and did not possess all of his original organs, he could not understand why people would be so rude, especially for a table. Furthermore, for some reason he was still intimidating Ixa with his stare, probably meaning he did not want Ixa to raise a fuss or make him run off. Actually, with his appearance, a normal child might pee themselves with the aura he gave off.

Of course, any normal person looking at this would only see Ixa, who was wearing a light blue sweatshirt, white shorts, and blue and white sneakers, looking at a large muscular man who was clearly at least three times bigger then him, and thought that Ixa would just comply. However...

"What the....hhiiiii!"

Suddenly, a large white wolf had appeared and was glaring at the man who had done this, and at the same time his shoes were frozen to the ground he was standing on, with a spike of ice having shot out and just stopped at the threshold of his neck. Ixa calmly got up, and looked at him.

"I was here first. No cutting in line. And don't be rude, jerk".

With that line, Ixa walked past him calmly and sat at the empty table. Of course, there were multiple chairs there so they could have shared, but Ixa would not share with someone who acted like that, especially to him.

After a few seconds, the ice dissipated and the wolf disappeared. Meanwhile, the waitress who had seen far weirder began to approach the table the boy had taken a seat in.

As they had no intention of harming him, and due to the size of the crowd, neither Ixa's ability to sense danger nor his enhanced senses had taken notice of William yet. However, it was possible for William to have sensed the spike in spiritual energy, and for him to recognize that the white wolf had been a form of spirit tied to the boy.

Easily traversing the crowd, as an orphan and a Shadow runner he got good at it or else he'd have been caught years back and or killed, depending on who he pissed off, the two ghosts had faded away, leaving Will to do what he could without their unneeded opinions.

William stood to watch the scene unfold, staying clear out the way "and that is why you don't pick on strangers, dumbass..." Will mumbled to himself before waiting a half minute before approaching, he comes towards the table and stops placing a hand onto the chair opposite "may I take a seat and join you?" seeing how the child reacted to the burly stranger it was best to be polite, that and the spirit wolf could appear anywhere nearby.

At the same time that the man came over, so had the waitress. Ixa looked at the man, but before he could reply, out of his sweatshirt's head hole where Ixa's own head was coming out of, the head of a white wolf pup also popped out. It looked very adorable. Looking at the pup, and then the man, Ixa just smiled. "Sure, there is enough room for everyone".

He then looked down at the white wolf as the waitress approached like everything was normal. "Snowflake, what are you doing appearing there for...ah! Umm, lets see...I will have the scrambled eggs with sprinkled parm cheese, some English muffins with butter, and an order of bacon and sausage. Ah, double those actually. Snowflake, you are probably hungry too. And...I don't know what that guy wants".

Actually, as Snowflake was his Spirit Guardian, he did not need to eat...but if Snowflake ate, he would not use spiritual energy from Ixa when he used his abilities, so it would be favorable to do so.

"Just the usual sweetheart" he smiled politely and nodded to the waitress, the usual being a double bacon cheeseburger fries and a drink. Will took the seat and glanced about, hanging his plastic bag of supplies off the backrest of his chair "that was quite the show you put on, with the ice, that and your spiritual aura is easily visible from a distance.

in the corner of his eye, the young child ghost reappeared covered as always by the sheet and mutely observing the situation at hand, the child had appeared in one of the chairs at the table. "thought you didn't get far" he spoke out loud again just a shrug from the sheet covered ghost, William shook his head and glanced back to the spirit wolf and child.

"why are you alone? are you an orphan?" he waited for some response, hoping to have the child tell his story.

"Show?" Ixa asked him questioningly, a bit confused. He didn't think what he did was extreme. However, his common sense was curtailed from being raised in a science lab where they wanted to make him into a weapon to sell. Compared to what he had been trained to do, what he did just there was extremely minor, to the point it could be called a whim. Therefore, he did not understand why it was treated as a show, like it was something spectacular. If he wanted to, Ixa could freeze the whole city block...but, he would probably get chased after by police and killed, so he didn't want to do that anyways. Also, using that much power at once would probably be too much for him, so he would probably be taken out easily if he did.

Ixa noticed the ghosts, as his own spiritual power was exceedingly high since he possessed a Spirit Guardian, a Spirit tied to his soul that would defend him from harm and follow his orders, while also having a free will of its own.

"You seem popular" Ixa commented, as now that Will was right in front of him, he could vaguely sense another spirit around.

"Ah, me? Let's see..." Ixa mentioned. He tried to remember the cover story, however...

"My name is Ixa Rixy! The second youngest of the Rixy brothers! I have a lot of brothers! Anyways, I am..."

Ixa tried to remember, however there was a seriously fatal flaw with any excuse he made that was not the truth. There was a barcode under his left eye, in plain view of Will. However, Will looked trustworthy enough that he did not think to worry.

"I am new to the city! And yeah, I am an orphan, but its okay because I have been managing pretty well!"

Ixa was also very optimistic.

William pointed to his cheek, where the barcode would be if he had one from the same group "and the barcode? unless the social workers started barcoding us orphans" he lowered his hand, resting it on the table. it really didn't take much for William to know the kid was withholding the truth, heck, he was doing the same.


he sat back and reached into his bag for a can of fizzy drink, opening it up and taking a swig, before setting the can down on the table, he got comfy leaning back and hooking an arm over the back of his chair, he glanced past Ixa and noticed to suited gentleman shades and the whole men in black getup.

with a unnoticeable sigh, Will kept an eye on the two of them, he had his pistols at his hips but, he was hoping that they stayed there. he didn't need another trip to the police station nor a secret organisation going after him.

he looked up to see the meals being brought through from inside the cafe/restaurant "ah food, finally"

"Its a birthmark! I have had it since I was clo...born!" Ixa proclaimed in his very, very poor defense. He had totally forgotten about that thing. Weren't they supposed to find a way to hide it? The issue is when they did that, it actually seemed to glow. Probably some defense mechanism against that maybe?

In truth, if someone scanned that barcode with an advanced enough device, they would get a total readout on Ixa and his abilities. Not only that, they would get his age, subject number, noted traits, and various photos of him in action. There were also a few embarrassing photos of him during medical examinations by the scientists, and even a bit more. That barcode was meant to be used to confirm it was the real thing, and not another clone, and to help people catalog his abilities.

Though truthfully, there were a number of smartphones that if they focused on the barcode, would also end up pulling this information after taking a picture of it.

"Oh good, the food!" Ixa said, as the food was put in front of him. He then began to dig in, ultimately trying to shift the conversation.

when the meals arrived, all questions stopped and William began to eat, chowing down on his burger and fries, he wasn't a graceful eater, that's for certain, but he liked his food. he stopped about halfway through his burger when he noticed the two suits had left and gone on with their day, glancing about, he shrugged and went back to eating looking back at the child in front of him. "you got a place to call your own? a home? if not, I know a good place that'll take care of you. Roughing it on the streets isn't the best idea"

the detective made himself present and looked between Will and Ixa, the ghost pondering quietly "can he see us as well?" Will sat back and looked at the ghost a fry handing from his mouth, pulling the chip in and eating it before speaking "no but he can sense you guys"

Ixa was...not the cleanest of eaters. That said, nothing actually got on him because Snowflake had taken the defensive "napkin" position, not only eating her own food but anything that spilled out from his. It seemed like he didn't have any reaction to immediately slurping down the milkshake in a fashion where one would normally get brainfreeze, but also was able to eat the hot foods as well. However, he did seem to notice the burgers were exceptionally hot, or at least his was. It wasn't actually that exceptionally, but Ixa's cold resistance made him a bit more sensitive to heat. It couldn't be called a weakness, more a discomfort. Hot food was okay, provided it was not too hot, but as for the weather...well, hot weather bothered Ixa greatly.

"I kind of have a home! A home is a place with a bed, bathroom, and you can get food!"

Snowflake looked at him and interjected. "To be exact, its a hotel room".

"Yeah! And thanks to Snowflake remembering to tell me to pay for it by..."

"By asking his brother's for help sometimes".

Ixa was about to say something, but Snowflake interrupted again. "Yeah! It's a bit lonely on my own, but I have Snowflake right?"

No matter what, there was one thing about Ixa painfully obvious to borderline be dangerous. He had to be the most overly optimistic person in the universe, his smile saying it all given he was in a hotel room that cost money, with no "stable" income, and would rely on support from his brothers for help. Brothers who were not anywhere near him presently.

Ixa was an idiot, after all.

Along the woods of the twisting path, the weather warped and whispered as a bit of a frost came into play. But this was no natural frost, but rather frost created by one person in specific.

"Ixa, you should try to stay on the path this time. Otherwise, you will get lost".

"Relax, relax! Its fine! Its not like we are going to anyplace in specific".

"My bad...we are already lost".

Wearing a blue and white sweatshirt that had a tail on the back, and wearing white shorts which really don't make sense to wear a long sleeve upper body with if you wear shorts, as well as white and blue sneakers was Ixa Snowfall Rixy. His red eyes bright with joy as his snow white hair swirled around his head as he spun around.

He also had no idea where he was, and neither did his Spirit Guardian Snowflake. Snowflake was not visible however, and remained inside Ixa hidden for the moment.

As Ixa spun around just for the fun of it, small snow particles could be seen showing the area due to his power, Lord of the Frost, which gave him a large amount of ice and snow related powers.

"Isn't this just a great day?"

"You say that every day..."

”Is this even part of the city”?

The Shinigami Komachi was flying through the outskirts of the city, or at least Komachi hoped so. By word, she decided to look for a sort of inn or location to stay, though the only inns she saw were the homes for the animals. Even if it wasn’t her priority, she still took some time to admire the various life in the area, ironic in a way. No flowers though, but she didn’t mind that much, Komachi still had a little distaste for them after the flower incident.

While she was looking at the trees, she felt a slight aura of decay around her. The flower’s didn’t wither or anything; perhaps it had to do with feeling a little out of place. Speaking of out of place, she was. Komachi was bitter at Yukari after the revelation she had. Not something she wanted to think about now.

There were various types of trees, caked in the now risen sun. Last time she had went inside, the moon was out. Now, the sun was up. So she felt a little more alien, due to this being the first time she’s seen this worlds sun. It seemed she couldn’t stop thinking about the subject, despite trying to take her mind off it. So Komachi tried focusing more on the green. ”Just green, green, white, whi- Wait..?” She thought in her head.

She looked to the source of the frosted grass, turning to see a hooded figure.
”Oh.” She said. It wasn’t that surprising, as practically everyone had an ability back home, and magic isn’t a foreign concept here.

”Must be native here.” She thought. Perhaps she could ask for directions.

Ixa was spinning around as he walked along the path, or at least what he was sure was the path, as snow particles danced around to his whim.

"Ixa..."

"Relax relax, I won't change the weather...too much, anyways!"

"Ixa!"

As Snowflake continued to shout Ixa's name, Ixa himself was just enjoying himself. It couldn't really be helped, we was hopelessly optimistic. Sure, he had no idea where he was. Sure, he had no idea where he would sleep tonight. He had no home, no job, the only money he could get was what he took from others. If he didn't do that, he would starve. If he entered the system, the bad people chasing them would find them and capture them. If he made too much of a public display, they would track him down and capture him. Pickpocket or suffer, or die or get experimented on. Those were essentially the options open to most of them at least.

But despite all this, Ixa was free. Free in the world to do what he wished and what he pleased. To be what he wanted, to go where he wished, interact with what he pleased. His entire life he had only known the torture, the experiments, the pain, the commands. The clothes he had on were actually the ones he had worn for the first time in his life, though he was sure to try and stay clean. But now, he was free of that. Most would still be locked in pessimism and despair, or paranoia. But Ixa was just purely optimistic and happy, to a point that if people knew his past they would question how he was even sane right now.

It was Snowflake and the Spirit Guardians for the other Rixys that helped teach them about the world, but there was a difference between hearing about it while in a cell, and experiencing it yourself.

"IXA!"

"What!?"

Suddenly, Snowflake's internal shouting inside Ixa's mind caused him to stumble and fall over. But instead of being upset or annoyed, Ixa just laughed it off. While laughing, he got around to asking Snowflake.

"Hey. What was the shout for Snowflake?"

"There is another person here watching you!"

"Haha...really?"

Ixa, even though he had enhanced senses beyond a normal human, had been enjoying himself so much he had not noticed the person approach.

"Hi there! Nice to meet you! Nice day for a walk, right?"

”Ehh, it ain’t exactly a nice day if you’re making it snow y’know...”

Komachi was still slightly stunned from the trip that Ixa had suddenly had.
But if she or he was fine, Komachi didn’t have to help her. Not her problem.
Speaking of which, she couldn’t tell if Ixa happened to be a boy or a girl. She had thought girl initially but she remembered that it wasn’t Gensokyo. See floated down to try to get a better look, but it wasn’t any more helpful.

She couldn’t really tell the person’s gender, but she can tell something else.

”Also, I’m guessing you’re half-phantom?” Komachi said.
She had the ability to manipulate any sort of ghosts or spirits and consequently, could sense them. Such an ability is probably expected for her. The so called “phantom” Komachi was referring to happened to be Snowflake.

"Ehhh? Why is that? Snow is light, fluffy, loads of fun. You can make snowmen, snowballs, snowforts, snow slides, snow monsters, snow friends, snow everything! It can even make things sparkle with wonder!"

Ixa's clearly excessive positivity radiated from him in a way that if one stood too close, they would get the impression they were standing next to a sun and the positivity was sun.

As the person did float down and approach, Ixa who was still unaware of her confusion simply smiled at her.

"What do you mean half phantom? I like you by the way, your pretty. Especially...oof!"

Suddenly, a giant white wolf appeared and knocked her paw into Ixa. Snowflake normally was incapable of harming her master, but an exception seemed to exist if her master was doing something unbelievably stupid.

"I think she means me, Ixa. I apologize for the lack of brain power from my master. I try to teach him about the normal world as best as I can but, he was raised in quite an...unreasonable setting. And the child is so overly optimistic its to the point that I am not sure if negativity exists in his dictionary".

Komachi took one step back, reflexively putting her right hand on the scythe sashed on her back; only to loosen the grip after. She took a moment to eye the wolf, though she might have thought she was looking at a lion due to his size. Snowflake looked intimidating and earnest, which she couldn’t say the same for Ix. Her appearance said the opposite. Komachi wasn’t going to take any compliments about her looks from someone who looked like that. Aside from looks and personality, there’s also background.

”Hmm... Oh, an asylum kid?” Komachi guessed. She could just tell from her personality, but Snowflake did help with the description. She had to ferry a few mental hospital patients back at Higan, and they were annoying to deal with. Komachi guessed they had tragically died either directly or indirectly because of their illness, though Ixa didn’t seem to be that extreme. It would be an exaggeration to just call her ill, more like... Childish or playful.

Ixa simply smiled as Komachi looked at him. He was clearly someone who was not only positive, but relatively carefree. No one would expect he might just be one of the greatest pickpockets of this generation, especially since he was not acting but truly and genuinely this positive and happy.

"Azlium?"

"Asylum, Ixa. It is a place for crazy people".

"But...I am not crazy..."

"...sometimes, I think it would be better if you were..."

Ixa then made a pouting face.

"So mean!"

Ixa did not seem overly serious when he said that though, so one could guess he was just having fun with it...or maybe, he just was not someone who got hurt by words much?

Well, he was opened up, operated on, and repeatedly tortured even while conscious, so it was not a big leap to say that he had resistances to getting hurt.

Komachi looked at the short back and forth between him and Snowflake, turning her head left and right. She felt the area slightly grow colder, sending chills down her arms and legs. She obviously wasn’t dressed for the winter, she lives in what’s probably it’s polar opposite.

Komachi unsheathed her scythe from her back, giving it a few spins before implanting it on her side, her right hand gripped on the handle, the blade cutting the snow. She loosened her hand and leaned on the stick, relaxing.

Komachi was already used to the sound of arguments, sorta. She got into those with Eiki all the time, though they were pretty much one sided.

”Well anyways, where are ya heading?” Komachi asked.

"Hmmm...I don't really remember! But that makes it more fun! Its like an adventure! If we don't know where we are going, we can discover new things, new places, new people!"

Ixa went on and on about the fun of adventuring and travel.

"And then, also..."

But before he could continue a loud growl could be heard, that could be mistaken for a monster. But Ixa just smiled and shrugged.

"Well, I guess we are headed to lunch now! Do you know the closest foody type place that serves food?"

Ixa asked that, which might indicate he had no idea where he was at the moment.

"Don't ask me. I'm the one wandering aimlessly." Komachi said shrugging.

She took a look at the distance, eyeing the city she was in.
"But I do have some lunch here." She said, pulling out a sashed plastic bag.

It was food from the Gambit's bar that she decided to take with her. The bag made small crinkling sounds from swinging around in her hand due to slight breezes in the wind. It reminded her that she was speaking to someone who has a cloud above their head.

"I knew it! You really did have no idea where we were going!"

"Okay oka...." Ixa started to plead when he noticed that she indicated she brought lunch with her. Almost immediately, Ixa approached her until he was really close up, his eyes similar to that of a pleading, adorable, wantful puppy and his mouth wavering.

"Ixa. Ask nicely".

"Oh...right! May I please have some?"

Notably, as if on queue, the weather anomalies seemed to subside at the thought of food...it seemed that somewhere, it was unconsciously shut off because he really wanted to eat something. And as for the reason why he didn't realize he had to nicely ask before, that was because he was raised in a lab that never bothered to teach him manners.

Of course, she was not someone who went unnoticed. In the normally empty forest of snow and trees, that appeared to expand across as far as the eye can see, there was another figure there. However, the figure was not that of a man, but a boy.

"Hmmm mmm hmm hm hm. Hmmm mmmm hm hm hmmm".

Someone who was humming something that was totally at random, it was Ixa Snowfall Rixy. He was wearing a blue hoodie that had cat ears on top, with a cat tail attached to the back, a pair of shorts, and the shoes that he normally wore were stuffed into the pockets of his hoodie. As for why they were stuffed in there with his socks instead of on his feet, that was because he thought it would be uncomfortable if snow slid into them while he was wearing them and become all slushy slushy.

So instead, he was walking barefoot with nowhere near enough clothing in the snow.

However, this was not really an issue for him as it was impossible for him to get frostbite or be bothered by extreme colds. As one with the ability "Lord of the Frost", Ixa was totally unaffected by cold temperatures. Of course, inversely, temperatures considered "hot" made him want to strip completely naked because he would find it uncomfortable, unless he used his ability to keep himself cool.

And that was when he stumbled across the person.

"Oh!"

"See, I told you some sort of spacial distortion happened here".

Appearing at his side was his Spirit Guardian, a large white wolf he named Snowflake. Or, did Snowflake name herself? Or maybe it was a name another gave her? Ixa forgot the specifics.

Ixa decided to nudge her face with her feet, to see if she would wake up. Unfortunately, he was not really the brightest of the Rixys.

Another sensation assaulted Elysia, awaking her from her cold-induced slumber. Something was... touching??? her face. At first she attributed it to the unrelenting snowfall, as the object was rather cold, but rather than stay still, the object was nudging her. Had she not just started the process of escaping a several-centuries-long catatonic state, she would have swatted at it, but alas, she had yet to regain enough self-awareness for that.

She opened her eyes though, only to see the bare foot of a boy hovering over her face. Fortunately for her, it didn't smell due to the circumstances (the boy having walked barefooted through the snow for a while). 'Dream?', she decided after staring at it for a bit, before closing her eyes again.

After all, despite having been in the catatonic state for centuries, she hadn't seen a living being for millennia.

The fact that she was in a place where snow and cold existed -where /anything/ existed- as opposed to the Void, so living beings could possibly exist, not quite clicking yet.

Ixa kept nudging her face a bit, seeing if she would react in any such ways, wondering if he was being ignored. He might just get a tad bit sad, or perhaps very sad, if he was being ignored. Even though the entire reason he came through the Southern Region in the first place was to go unnoticed, if a person that he was trying to interact with ignored him coldly, Ixa would probably take considerable mental damage.

Ixa's skin was actually pretty much perfect, due to his Adaptability power that did a lot of miscelanous and usually rather mundane things. Of course, it made him a universal receiver of blood, organs, and such, but given that it caused him to also be an experimental test subject for nearly a decade, in fact for almost all his life up until recently, it was not something he would brag about. But Ixa was well known among the RIxys for his overly positive attitude. He was probably, at least a bit, too positive.

"Wakey wakey! You might get a cold there!"

And when he heard her mention him as a dream, he pouted a bit.

"I am not a dream! Thats it, time for the secret technique! Ultimate Ixa Stomach Jump!"

And so he jumped on her aiming for the stomach region in a playful and silly manner, in a way that would do almost no damage...but would certainly be something that could be felt.
