✫ Personality ✫

- Raised by modest parents within a loving wholesome hardworking family made Imi quite hardworking and modest herself.

- Adventurous to a fault Imi's the type to begin on some epic journey or quest that might get her into trouble or put herself in danger, all for the sake of a great adventure! She'd never ask anyone else to risk getting in trouble with her though, and would insist to not to be followed if she thought others would get hurt. It's one thing to put her own life on the line, but she hates being responsible for other peoples welfare.

- Very opinionated it's hard to shake her personal beliefs unless the proof is overwhelming, and while she'll definitely stand up for herself she's not aggressive or pushy about it. Instead Imi states her opinions in a rather passive way, which sometimes comes off like she's taking a situation lightly when in fact she's just good at keeping a level head.

- She's a deep thinker and the personification of an introspective, forever evaluating her emotional state, flaws, and personality. Being her hardest critic pushes her to not just learn something, but practice it until it's perfect - which is often impossible. I guess one could call her a perfectionist.

- Free spirited Imi is the first to volunteer for a mission, first to try something new, and first to do something completely out of left field. She's a fun girl to be around as long as you're ready to think big!

- Imi is a background observer as much as she is up front and personable, forever trying to understand people from a far as well as up close so she can learn what's underneath the surface of one's personality.

- Though she might appear silly and a bit too free-spirited at times Imi is very wise, an is so well studied in everything magic, history, and linguistics related that she'd be more than qualified to teach the history of them at any University.

✫ Weaknesses ✫


+ Her Family being in harms way. +

+ If one of her clones is injured her main body will have a brief, but very real, empathic reaction. For minor injuries/punches/scraps it's nothing she can't handle thanks to training, but for more serious injuries it can be momentarily debilitating. +

+ Screw diamonds or flowers....food is the key to her heart. +

+ Insects on Earth +

+ Has a high tolerance for Alcohol but because extremely mouthy after drinking and can say some out there, personal, or random things that she'll regret later. She doesn't dish on secret plans or anything, just personal/inappropriate things about herself. +




✫ Powers/Skills ✫


+ Can speak a large percentage of the languages on Earth +

+ Can replicate herself into her own little army. She can change the appearance of her clones as their made in an instant, from simple things like hair and clothing to more complex things like facial structure and skin tone, though she enjoys cloning herself as-is to mess with people more than anything. Also her clones can be formed up to several miles away. +

+ Can replicate any object that she has touched or that is in her direct view. The cloned object will have all the physical attributes as the original, however Imi can make it disappear in a cloud of dust at any time, as well as choosing to leave the clone objects where they lay. However after 24 hours any inanimate object that is cloned will dissipate if she's no longer within several miles of it. The only clones she can maintain for an indefinite amount of time are human clones/replications or replications that are within several miles of her. +

+ Decent at hand-to-hand combat and dual-swordplay, but is an expert at throwing daggers as well as using her Meteor Hammer, which is enchanted with a spell that allows her to shrink it to just a few feet in length when not in use but allow it to grow to it's normal size when only Imi is ready to use it....for everyone else it would simply stay in it's shrunken state. Since she can fight with two swords at once she carries two swords, as wall as daggers hidden on her person, however the weapon she uses much more than any is her hands or Meteor Hammer +



✫ Short History ✫


Born to a respectable loving family with more brothers and sisters than she has fingers(33 for now) Imi grew up well loved, working hard, studying harder, and adventuring hardest on her families acres an acres of land. Her family is incredibly important to her and she will always put them before herself or anyone else.

So begins...

Raine sighed as she made her way through the busy, morning streets of the Kingdom. Reluctantly she and the other member's of the Zodiac had promised to meet at a popular coffee shop, Spirited Away (how original lol), for breakfast. It was their way of 'getting to know each other better' but to Raine it was just a huge waste of time. Sure they haven't had any demon sightings on Earth for the past few days but that doesn't mean they should relax, if anything they should prepare for something big.

"Look mommy its Capricorn!" Raine heard a voice of a child, turning her head slightly to see a little red haired girl with big blue eyes full of wonder. She had a big smile plastered on her face as she tugged on her mother's skirt, whom in response turned her head in a bored like manner. She most likely didn't believe the child. But once her blue eyes landed on Raine they widened in shock and wonder as Raine placed. What was the big deal? Yes the Zodiac were some of the most powerful spirits and Raine herself ranked pretty high on that scale but still she was in all do respect, still just a spirit like them. Raine gave them a small smile and a wave before rounding a corner but out of the corner of her eye she saw them both with huge smiles on their faces.

Well maybe this day won't be so bad after all.

She reached the steps of the large cafe and entered, unsurprised to see some many people in the area. Raine walked up to the person that would show her to her table, to which she was sure Chastity had reserved. Raine had to keep reminding herself to not change into animal form with that blonde ball of energy around.

"Hello I'm here for a table for 12, I'm Raine Knight" Raine said polity. The woman looked annoyed as she glanced down at the reservation book but Raine saw her eyes widened once she saw whom her name was under. The woman's head instantly snapped up, Raine was surprised she didn't get whip-lash.

"Of course Miss.Knight, you are the first to arrive let me show you to your table" the woman said calmly, though Raine could hear the under toned nervousness.

"Lead the way" Raine said kindly and the woman nodded before stepping out from behind the desk and leading the way. She walked Raine through the lower level of the cafe and onto the second floor, having to walk up a spiral staircase of brass before reaching the bright red room. The tables up here were bigger and more spread out, everything looked much fancier then down stairs.

"I will send someone up to take your drink order in a moment Miss.Knight" the woman said polity.
"No its ok I can wait until the rest of my companions arrive thank you" Raine said kindly and the woman nodded before rushing back downstairs and Raine took a seat that the table with a silver name plate that said Zodiac.

The view outside of her room was beautiful, with lush trees, bustling wildlife, and a beautiful body of water not that far away from her window on the families property, so as much as Imi would of preferred to stay home this morning she pulled herself out of a relaxed state and began to get ready.



After she dressed herself in a short fitted purple top an a pair of purple shorts with hanging suspender straps and matching boots she'd quickly make her way down the stairs to be greeted by her mother and three of her elder brothers.
The five would commence in casual friendly conversation until Imi went into the hall closet and pulled out her swords - attaching them to the right side of her hip, followed by her Meteor Hammer* - which she attached to the left side of her hip before closing the closet door. Her daggers on the other hand were already hidden on herself from back when she was getting dressed, as well as her key - which was snug under her bust.

"Off to start a war dear?" her Mother joked, to which they all laughed for a moment before Imi made mentioned of the breakfast meeting with the rest of the Zodiac.

"Well we love you, be well."
"I love you too Mother, an I always am."


After a quick wave and nod towards everyone in the room Imi would head out the door and make her way into the city.









Between her bright colorful hair - which was pulled up into a long ponytail at the moment - and her height, which almost always increased by a few inches thanks to her boots, Imi easily stood out amongst the crowd, but due to her well known personality instead of fleeing from her a lot of people, mostly children, usually felt comfortable to approach or walk beside her, not just stand back and stare in awe, though much to her irritation she couldn't shake the intense fear and admiration some people seemed to have for her.

"Imi! Imi!!! Over here!" a small young boy called out as he ran towards her with a purple pumpkin.
"A purple pumpkin??" she'd whisper to herself in confusion before the boy plopped down on his rear end a few feet from her out of exhaustion - a sight that caused her to laugh under her breath.
"Look look what I have for you, It matches your clothes! And your hair! Well not exactly but enough, see!!?"

The child-like speech was enough to cause a smile to appear on her face, but the fact that the boy was holding up the Pumpkin towards her made the Zodiac smile even wider.

"Thank you, um...what's your name again?" she'd ask as she took the Pumpkin, which was slightly smaller than a basketball. Imi had told so many children that they could call her by her first name that she sometimes forgets who's who.
Before the boy could clue her in on his identity though a man came yelling towards them - scolding the child like only a father would for taking the pumpkin without asking. However when the man noticed the purple fruit in Imi's hand he instantly began to apologize for yelling. She'd attempt to hand the crop back but the man was too afraid to accept it, so instead Imi pulled out a small handful of money that amounted to more than enough to buy three or four pumpkins and dropped it in the mans apron pocket before rubbing the top of the boys head.
"There, your son found you a customer then."
Imi smirked before continuing through the market and heading towards the Coffee shop.










Once inside Spirited Away Imi walked towards the hostess who seem a bit scared as she started up at her.
"G-Gemini? the woman stuttered while nervously tapping her foot on the ground.
"What's wrong?" Imi asked a bit baffled, but the girl in front of her began to apologize profusely for her behavior, claiming nothing was wrong before telling Imi to follow her.

Ignoring the comments and stares from around the first floor as they approached the staircase Imi again questioned the girl about what was wrong and why she was apologizing.
"I'm sorry, I don't want to bother you, I apologize if I'm bothering you." she'd again say before leading Imi into the room where there other Zodiacs were already sitting.
"W-would you like anything as you wait?" she'd ask Imi with her head hung low.
"Well yes, I'd like you to stop looking at the ground for one, and two, stop apologizing to me for you haven't done anything wrong, okay? You've actually be very helpful."

The girl was taken aback by her comments and smiled only slightly as she looked up an nodded, then quick like a rabbit she'd scurry out the door without another word.


"What a frazzled girl." Imi mentioned before taking a seat across the table from the other three who had arrived first - placing the pumpkin down on floor beside her. She smiled and nodded her head slightly in Tadashi's direction, fully expecting nothing in response from him, and then smiled with a small wave towards Raine and Chasity before taking a look around the room, where she'd eventually spot a television. Not wanting boredom to set in she'd create an exact replication of herself in a millisecond in front of the TV and then have the replication turn it on and randomly surf through the channels until she hit a news station.
"Meh, I guess that's fine." Imi muttered, before turning her chair sideways so that she could see the TV yet remain partially facing the room door and table.
As she began to watch the breaking news report her replication across the room would vanish in the same cloud of sky-blue dust it appeared in.

Kira closed her eyes, smoothing out the creases of her eyelids, as she submerged herself underwater. Everything was completely different underwater. The only sound you could hear was the light dance of rushing water and the only feeling you felt was that of being weightless. She slowly opened her eyes under water and looked up at the blurry mixture of the sky and the water. If she had it her way Kira would live her life in water.

She stayed under water for a few more moments then she slowly brought herself up to the surface, a shiver running down her spine from the cool awakening of air brushing against her skin. She stood there for the next minute in silence, the ends of her white dress floating to the surface of the water.

"Kira... you have to get out now.." She told herself, walking towards the area where the green grass and blue depth of water met. ''

The weight of her dress seemed to be significantly more as she hoisted herself onto land. Every single piece of clothing she owned she had swam in at least once. When she wanted to swim she didn't wait to prepare herself suitable clothing to wear into the water. She didn't want to waste time thinking about petty things like that, so she usually swam in whatever she was wearing at that moment.

Kira sat on a small corroded log, wringing her fingers around her long, black hair and watching as the water droplets fell from her hair and landed on the grass. She then ran over to a small cottage and slipped on a white dress that fell just past her knees. She walked over to the mirror and stared at herself, putting on a blue choker that matched the color of her eyes. Sure, she didn't look like the type to wear dresses but she actually really liked wearing dresses. They gave a lot more room to fight and she loved the way they floated in water. She walked over to her bed and slipped on a pair of worn, black converse then headed back to the mirror.

She gave one more look at herself and then headed towards the decided location she was supposed to meet everyone at. After wondering around for thirty moments she finally found Spirited Away. She pushed a strand of black hair behind her ear and walked in.

"Kira Reindl, table for twelve." She stated.

As the waitress checked the list and began talking, Kira caught a glimpse of the table.

"I'll go myself." Kira said, interrupting the waitress. She walked to the table where a few people sat already. Her eyes looked around for a moment, studying each of them, and then she plopped down in a seat near the end of the table.

Leo opened his eyes and drudged over to the alarm clock going off across the room. He growled and slapped the top of it, tapping it off and resetting it to wake him up tomorrow. Arching his back, he stretched out. Going downstairs, Leo went to start on his breakfast. He soon remembered he was eating with the others. "I'll still be hungry..." He took tomatoes off the table and would eat them on the way.

Going back to his room, he got dressed. He took off his pajamas, and replaced them with jeans. He covered his bare chest with a white t-shirt. Yanking up socks, he laced up his scuffed, worn boots. Leo reached his arm into a olive drab button up shirt. He left the top two buttons undone though. He was almost ready to go out.

Returning to the table, he took two things off his chair. His dark blue hat and his jacket. He also snatched a plastic soda bottle with clear liquid at the bottom of it, and a strip of white powder rolled up in plastic wrap. Once outside, he unscrewed the cap of the bottle and put the roll into it. Quickly tightening the cap, he shook it, watching the bottle expand slightly as the contents fizzed inside. Leo smiled and threw it. He watched it's path until it finally hit the ground and exploded. The bottle went flying after the loud pop. He loved explosions. They were one of the purest forms of energy he could find.

After the shenanigans, Leo started off towards Spirited Away. Taking a tomato out, he started eating one. "Shit, forgot salt." He shrugged it off and kept walking. Some where frightened when he passed them, surprising them by suddenly coming up next to him. He didn't get why, he wasn't trying to be quiet, and it was kind of hard with his big boots on the asphalt. He stepped over a puddle easily, his long legs going across it. Another women wasn't having such a good time. He looked back and saw her. He went to the other side and held out a hand, smiling. She took his hand as he helped her over. "Thank you!" Leo smiled. "No problem.." He kept on his way to the cafe, not taking too long to reach it.

Opening the door, he put his forearm against it and walked into it. He always opened doors this way. As he entered he reached up and took off his hat. "Leo, table for twelve?" The waitress looked up from what she was doing, only to look to Leo's chest. Her eyes widened as she kept looking up. "Right upstairs, but, you're already there." She giggled and Leo went upstairs. He heard her talking to the others, and something about falling from a beanstock.

Seeing the other five, he was happy, knowing at least they were here so far. He had started another tomato when he saw Chastity simply standing there. Her back was to him as she just stood in front of them. He smiled and came behind her. He reached down and poked her shoulders. "Ah!" He laughed and moved to the side to get a seat. There was Raine, and this time Leo was determined to try and get something out of her. In one smooth motion he put his hat on her and turned it backward, grinning.

Ryu grunted as he felt something probing him in the ribs. "Come on get up, you have to go." He heard a female voice say. To be honest Ryu wasn't quite sure who the voice belonged to. "Yes, yes, I'm going." He muttered, his words silenced by the pillow. Turning over onto his back, he repeated what he said In case Yuki, he was fairly sure that was her name, didn't hear him the first time. He got up from the bed and stretched, his spine crackling slightly. "Your things are on the chair." The woman yelled from the bathroom. His kimono and the rest of his things were indeed messily draped over the chair.

Ryu flet around his kimono until he found a little pocked, he took out a golden key and smiled to himself. Yuki was still in the bathroom when he got dressed. He closed his eyes and thought of a street in the Kingdom's centre, gripping the golden key with his right hand he pushed it into the air and turned. A bright portal appeared in the middled of the bedroom. He peaked his thread through just to make sure it was indeed the street he imagined and stepped into it only a moment later. After he passed through the door close and dissappeared.

"Are you done? I'm going to be late for wo..." The woman asked stepping out of the bathroom but was answered with silence. Ryu was gone, the only trace of him ever being here were the still messy sheets and the cigarette stub on in the ashtray on the night stand.

It was still early and Ryu decided to go home and change before meeting with the other Zodiacs. He entered the large but empty house and headed straight towards the shower. Water was dripping from his damp hair, rolling down his chest and back before it reached the towel wrapped loosely around Ryu's waist. He stood in front of his closet picking out an outfit. Should he wear something special? I has been a long time since he last saw the other Zodiacs. He ended up choosing his usual outfit, he always did. I was often that he spent at least an hour judging his clothes but picked one of his red kimonos in the end. When he finally looked at the time it was later than he thought it would be so he quickly put in his hair piece, grabbed his sword and headed towards Spirited Away.

In the morning while the streets were still empty he moved around the city at a quick pace but that was definitely not the case now. A group of girls approached him, he is very popular with the ladies, and tried to convince him to go on a date with him. He smiled his winning smile and as gently as possible turned down their offers. Ryu does like the attention his looks bring him but not when it's about to make him late. Being fashionably late is fine but he hated the thought of arriving last. A dozen of broken hearts and a half an hour later he got to the Café.

He entered the coffee shop and smiled at the receptionist. She blushed as he took her hand and kissed it. "It's alwasy a pleasure." At the corner of his eye he saw the group. "I'll show myself to the table." He sat down on the empty chair next to Imi. He greeted everyone with a simple nod and took out a cigarette. He lit it by snapping his fingers which crated a small flame.

"So..." He stated exhaling the smoke and raising his eyebrows a bit. "Miss me much?"

The vision of the target reflected dimly in the pool of his eyes, wavering back and forth as he focused on the single object in front of him. Nearly twenty strides away, the striped target sat, the neon colours standing out brightly against the pale landscape of long grass and dim blue sky. He took in a deep breath, tasting the cool, earthy air, feeling the edge of the feather on his cheek, listening to the sound of the wind brushing against the grass. Short locks of his nearly navy blue hair fell in front of his vision, though he did not move. He was completely focused on this one act, this stream of events that would send the arrow flying towards the centre of the target. Still holding his breath, he stared so intently that the rest of the background blurred out around him.

Then, he let go. His breath huffed out, the arrow jerked forward with such sudden force and speed that the feather left a small red line against his cheek. The arrow twisted briefly around the front of the bow, flexibly bending around its shape, then twisting through the air before landing right in it's spot...a mere centimetre away from the red circle, the very edge of the tip of the arrow just a sliver to the side. His lips parted slightly in shock, he lowered his weapon with defeat, his shoulders shrugging. The quiver of arrows on his back lurched downwards, the arrows knocking against eachother. The sound of failure. How had this happened? He never missed, especially when he was standing still. There was no challenge to the shot, besides the distance. No movement, nothing stressing him, how had he done this? Kai narrowed his eyes, grabbing his quiver off of his shoulder, holding it in the same hand as the bow. He must have been bothered by something, there was a thought at the back of his mind, never fully surfacing.

And then he remembered it. That meeting with the rest of the Zodiacs, the one that probably started a few minutes ago. Kai glanced down at his wrist instinctively, searching for a watch, then realized he wasn't wearing one. Muttering a curse under his breath, he dropped his bow and quiver to the soft grass, and turned around, rushing towards his home behind with a sense of urgency. He was never late for anything, and this would certainly not be his first time! How could he have forgotten about this? While Kai was pondering all of his mistakes, and still feeling pretty bitter about missing his target, he readied himself for the visit, running a hand through his hair, throwing on a burgundy long sleeved shirt with a loose neckline, and a long white jacket overtop of that. Frantically searching for his key, and a watch, took a minute or two, and though he knew they probably wouldn't mind much, he definitely would have it on his mind all day that he was late.

He usually would have walked to the destination, or at least gone somewhere close and walked from there, but he obviously didn't have the time for that. Kai threw his arm up into the air, the key tight in his grip, and twisted it mid-air. He didn't even glance once at the swirling portal in front of him before stepping in. In the blink of an eye, he was in front of the quaint cafe, staring ahead at the tall doors. He slipped the key inside a pocket of his coat. The sun was much brighter here rather than on the plains where he was, and the buzz of conversation was a shock to his system. He didn't go out all that often. The Zodiac glanced around briefly before pulling open the door, and stepping inside. The smell of coffee and baked goods washed over him, the sound of conversation even louder than outside. Kai made his way forwards towards the woman standing at the front, hunched over a small table, obviously the hostess.

"Hello," he greeted briefly, raising her attention, before continuing on. "Kai Loncarski, for a table of....twelve." It was then that he glanced at a clock on the wall. He was only a few minutes late, but he felt nearly devastated. This never happened...usually he was early, often there before the host, but not today apparently. He let out a quiet sigh, and glanced over to the woman again, who's eyes were running over the paper in front of her. They suddenly lit up, and she raised her head, smiling at him politely.

"Right this way." she spoke, starting towards the back of the restaurant. Kai had to watch to make sure was avoiding the people sitting at their tables, though muttered a quiet 'sorry' whenever he bumped into someone. Eventually she got to a tall metallic staircase. Kai raised a hand to stop her in her steps, casting her a weak smile.

"I can make my way from here, thanks." and with that, he stepped away, starting up the staircase. Each step creaked underneath his weight, causing his way up to be a rather noisy one. The spiral staircase itself made him a bit nervous, he could just imagine his foot slipping through between the stairs and his leg just snapping. Kai dismissed the thought with a slight shake of his head, getting finally to the top of the second floor. The room nearest him was the one he heard slight conversation coming from. He peered inside the red room, noticing the familiar faces of the other Zodiacs. Without a word, he stepped in and the first thing he did was glance up at the clock. The one in the room was a few minutes behind...in fact, according to that clock, he was right on time. Kai looked at his watch though anyways as a force of habit, raising his eyes only to glance at each person. Breathing in, he could taste and smell the scent of cigarette smoke in the air, and he glared slightly.

Like the blunt person Sagittarius naturally was, he spoke up right away.

"I know I didn't miss your little smoking habit." he said bitterly, raising an eyebrow, hoping that Ryu would get the hint. Hopefully he wasn't too dense to understand that.

Chastity still stood there while even as Imi and Kira entered. Ugh, what am I doing? It's not like I've never met them before or anything... Chastity sighed. It has actually been quite a while since they've been in contact, she's only kept really close contact with Eva. By the time Chastity realized that Imi had waved at her, she had already turned towards the television and Chastity mentally hit herself for missing that. Chastity always had her head up in the clouds, it was almost a bad habit, but she enjoyed her own little world at the same time. Just as she was about to finally walk towards the seat, she felt a tap on her shoulder and her heart skipped a beat.

Chastity spun her head behind her and seen someone's... chest? She tiled her head slightly before looking then seeing a certain laughing Zodiac. Chastity still had her hand on her chest from getting so freaked out and she blushed then pouted her lip out.
N-Not funny.
She looked away, still embarrassed. Chastity also went to sit down and moments later, Ryu came in. Chastity rolled her eyes when he asked if anyone missed him. But she laughed when Kai came in and made a comment on his smoking habit. She covered her mouth to prevent them from hearing her laugh. When she was calmer, she rested her face on her palm and looked out the window.

One time- no, multiple times, she has been walking down the street and had seen women completely crowded around Ryu. This bothered Chastity because she didn't believe in shamelessly flirting with everyone, but to just find that one person that you'll spend the rest of your life with, but she also knew that probably would also not be possible. I mean, really. Would you want to be around the same person for millenniums? It's not like Chastity didn't know why they did that though. I mean, yeah, he was incredibly handsome and- Chastity smacked her hands against her cheeks and blushed. NO. Bad thoughts! Chastity sighed and kept her head down, not wanting anyone to see her red face, although it was probably too late for that. When Chastity heard a familiar voice, she lifted her head up and smiled at who was sitting beside her.


Eva! I thought you were going to be even later than this...
Chastity finally spoke more than two words with her soft, feminine voice. She wrapped her arms around Eva's shoulders, hugging her from the side and pressing her cheek against Eva's scarred cheek. However, something was bothering her... Something staticy? Chastity pulled away and Eva's mop of static was sticking to Chastity's dress and even her hair. Chastity covered her hand over her mouth and chuckled softly. She always knew that Eva had troubles with her difficult hair, even if it was so thin. She'd always brush it too much or put the wrong thing in her hair. Chastity laughed at her every time this happened.

Imi noticed every arrival and would nod casually to acknowledge the Zodiac who entered before going back to the news - which dished out a mixture of funny, depressing, and just plain weird stories via the anchors. However when one of the Zodiacs sat beside her, or in Imi's case in front of her since her chair was turned sideways, she'd look towards them and quickly notice it was Ryu - lighting up a cigarette.


"So...miss me much?" he'd ask, but before anyone at the table could respond Kai - who was walking through the door - spoke up first, quick to criticize Ryu's smoking habit.

Imi couldn't help but laugh under her breath at the interaction between the two.
"This is starting to look and sound a lot like those family reunions filled with people who rather not be attending." she'd say to no one in particular before shifting in her seat some to switch which leg crossed over the other.

It was after her comment that she'd notice Chastity turning completely red and hanging her head low in embarrassment. Though unsure Imi assumed it had something to do with Ryu since blushing women around him seemed to be an oddly common occurrence, which caused her to look at him questioningly for a second before staring back over towards the flush woman.
"I don't get it...." she'd think to herself. After living for such a long time working with a man who was incredibly attractive was no different than working with a man who resembled a toad for her.


Eva's arrival would snap Imi out of her thoughts and prompt her to look towards the doorway for a moment, but when the two girls began to converse she'd look forward at Ryu again.

"What exactly is it? Do you carry an infatuation spell or something to cause girls to go absolutely soft around you?" she joked quietly.

Raine huffed as she felt something plop down on her and twist back. Her eyes shot over to the big figure beside her. Leo. Raine only gave him a small smile and took off the hat, placing it on his lap.
"Wearing hats at a table is bad manner's" she said stoically. Though she didn't want him to think she was upset or anything so she just smiled at him before turning towards the rest of the table. They were only missing a few more but the other's tardiness was irritating to her.

"Imi, Ryu's ability to obtain woman is that of the same as a male peacock, he is brightly colored and puffy giving his body form more appealing to females, though it would have to be females with simple tastes because I to don't see the big whoop of his appearance and a major off-put is his attitude, cocky and ill mannered" Raine said dryly, no emotion shown nor felt as she stated an obvious fact of the Aries Zodiac. The sharp scent of cigarette smoke wafted into Raine's sensitive animal like nose and she gave out a soft, choking noise and covered her nose with her hand.

"Please try not to forget the fact that one of your Zodiac companions has a very sensitive nose to that of an animals, my heightened sense of smell can not tolerate such pungent odors like that cancer stick you are sucking on" Raine growled, narrowing her eyes at the man as they shifted to a golden color, showing her irritation. Call her a stick in the mud, Raine didn't care. There was one thing she couldn't stand and that was pungent odor's.

Her head rested against the wall of the shower, water running down her body as she let out a sigh. Every fiber of Grace's being was aching and sore. Grace had been training for the past few days, doing everything she possibly could of to keep herself occupied. Groaning as she got out of the shower, drying off her body and then her hair, getting ready to meet everyone at Spirited Away.

Pulling out her outfit for today, an elegant white dress with a white jacket with of course an under layer of shorts, Grace finished brushing her hair rather quickly and was out the door with her weapon strapped onto her back and her key in her jacket's pocket. Setting foot onto the busy street, Grace's movements were quick and careful to not to trip on her way there. She certainly didn't want to be the last one showing up at the café.

The sounds and sights were always the same no matter how much she was in a crowded locations. It wasn't as if she hated them, she was simply paranoid by how easy it would be for people to sneak up on her. It was irritating, to say the least. Taking a short cut every now and again, Grace would wave to the children that seemed to notice her, even stop for a brief second to say hello.

Eventually, Grace had made it to the Spirited Away café. Walking up quietly to the lady in front of her, Grace's words were brief as she looked the women dead in the eyes. "Grace Amara, table for twelve." Her tone of voice was rather blank, and so was her expression as the women seemed to quickly inform her of where to go. "Thank you, I'll be fine going myself." With that, Grace turned and slowed her pace to the group, eventually she forced the corners of her mouth into a slight smile as she came into sight.

"Good morning everyone, I hope I'm not to late, am I?" It didn't take long for her to notice the clear irritation at Ryu's smoking from a few of her fellow Spirits. "Jeez, isn't it way to early for this?" Grace sighed, her face now flat of all emotions. Trying to draw her attention to anything else as she took the empty seat next to the smoker, she questioned her own sanity for doing so. "It's nice to see everyone again... Even you, Ryu." Grace slowly turned her head to glace at the man, getting a strong whiff of the smoke as her body broke into a shiver of disgust.

"Ryu, if you need a smoke, why don't you go outside to do it? I'll even stand out there with you, just so Raine doesn't have to smell that any longer. Besides, the smell will take awhile to leave the room at this rate." Grace offered, looking over to the man as she tucked her rather bruised hands into her jacket pocket. "It'd be easier this way." It was a waste if he simply put out the cigarette anyway, after all it looked like he just now lit it. Not to mention she didn't exactly like sitting still to begin with.

Ichiro heard a light whooshing sound, then a thunk. Moments again, another whoosh, then a thunk. His eyes began to open slowly, and his curiosity grew. In an apartment where only he resided, he wondered who had made their presence known, without him even letting them in. And then it hit him. Well, almost. The kunai missed his face by mere centimeters, as the laugh of his sister (the elder of the two, and master of teasing Ichiro) echoed out in his bedroom. His eyes opened slowly, and focused immediately on her. Why was she upside down?

She wasn't.

As the sun had risen mere moments ago, his sister had let herself in and arranged his bedroom so that she could hang him upside down from his wardrobe, just to be able to savour the moment when he woke up and finally realised that she'd been teasing him once again. It kind of helped that she was here though, or Ichiro may have never bothered getting out of bed in the first place. Not that he had a choice in the matter right now, since his soft, warm bed was all the way over on the other side of the room. "Please get me down from here."

Ichiro, still parading around the room in his underwear, handed his sister her kunai back, after having to pull several from his wardrobe doors. She laughed lightly, patting his shoulder as she pocketed the kunai. "There may still be hope for you yet. Now don't you have somewhere to be?" were her words she spoke as he got dressed in his usual outfit. His sister had already disappeared before he could awkwardly thank her for his wake-up call, and so he went downstairs instead, grabbed his kusarigama and his 'Scorpion's Stinger', along with a golden key and a pair of sunglasses, then headed out into the street.

Gently, Ichiro pushed his sunglasses further up his nose as he entered a rather quiet street, eyeing as a young lady's attention sparked, merely by his presence around her. His casual stroll began building up into a slight jog. He didn't need any attention right now. He had places to be... And people to meet. His weapons clanged and shook as his walking got quicker and quicker, which didn't bother Ichiro that much, since he could manipulate his weapons, and they felt lighter than air to him, but could pack a punch for anyone else.

Time passed, and Ichiro let out a light sigh as he turned a corner into a busy street. Was this the street? He couldn't remember. He'd stopped to ask directions to this so called 'Spirited Away' place, but the man he had stopped simply ignored him and moved along like he hadn't even existed in the first place. It infuriated him. It was people such as that which didn't make him want to ever be around the kingdom at this time ever again. He didn't even feel like he wanted to meet up with anyone at the coffee shop, nor anywhere else for that matter. Every little thing about today had already scratched away slowly at his patience. What could any activity possibly do to salvage it, and spark his intrigue? Underneath the tinted glass, Ichiro's eyes burned a bright, fiery amber, which was an indication that his patience was wearing very thin. He marched along, sticking out like a sore thumb against the rest of the crowds, with all his weapons and odd-looking clothing. He didn't care that much. He was already late. The best he could hope for would be that he saw friendly faces when he finally arrived. Or at least an angry Eva. He could deal with that. He found it sweet that she cared. Not many people genuinely did.

As he entered the café, the waitress sank back a little, watching such a tall and slender man arrive with such huge weapons about his person. He smiled ever so slightly, as his eyes turned back to a soft red. "Table for twelve. Ichiro Nakamura." He slid his sunglasses down a little, which immediately sparked the waitress' attention and made her forget about how intimidated she felt when he had first entered. He laughed a little, the smirk remaining on his face as he pushed the tinted glass back over his eyes and directed himself to the table.

As he approached his fellow zodiacs, he slung his weapons down behind an empty seat, which shook the floor a little, surprisingly without breaking it. His eyes scanned each of the zodiacs that had already arrived, and he smiled a little. "It's been a long time. Apologies for my lateness." He kept his sunglasses on as he sat at the table. He didn't want to give a bad impression of himself by bringing unwanted attention to their table.

Leo laughed at Chastity's reaction, and was glad that Raine put his hat in his lap, instead of throwing it or letting it just drop to the ground. He just shook his head and at Ryu's cockiness. He could see the tension between him and Kai, and took note of it. Soon everyone was starting to go back and forth. Eva soon came to Raine, concerned and whispered to her. Leo got ready for yet another potential skirmish. She seen went away and he wasn't as worried, but he still had to pay attention to all the others. It seemed to him that there wasn't any real meeting, just a group bickering with one another.

He rolled his eyes and growled slightly, looking around. Holding his hand up, he tapped his finger, counting off who was there. He mumbled to himself the number. "Yea.. k, we're good." He turned to Raine again and put his hat in her lap. "Hold this please?" He stood up and looked over the others. "Aight, we're all heyah. Now, y'all complainin' 'bout da smoke, but really, tink of it dis way. At least it's covahin' his normal smell." Leo smiled and chuckled. "Okay, aight, I'm gon go get downstayahs and get da drinks." He started his way back downstairs and found a waitress. "Oh uh.. we're ready ma'am." He went back upstairs, looking to see that she was coming up too. "Don't worry, dey don't bite, I made shuwa dey ate befowah dey came." He smiled to her as they came to the table. She laughed and asked what they wanted.

Ryu was sitting on the chair thinking this little reunion might have been a good idea after all, it was nice seeing the other Zodiacs after such a long time. Well he was thinking it until Kai showed up. "I know I didn't miss your little smoking habit." The way Kai spoke tempted Ryu to give him the finger. But it might be a bit too early for that so he just made eye contact with the other while he took a long drag from his cigarette and blew out the smoke right into Kai's face.

His smoking crated obvious tension but he honestly couldn't care less. Ryu's attention drifted from the programme Imi was watching to her breasts. He couldn't help himself the girl had an amazing set of tits. When she turned her attention back to him he quickly diverted his glance towards where Eva and Chastity were sitting. Getting caught at staring at Imi's boobs might earn him a hit on the head with the Meteor Hammer and he most certainly didn't want that.

"What exactly is it? Do you carry an infatuation spell or something to cause girls to go absolutely soft around you?" Ryu took a drag from his cigarette and cleared his throat. He opened his mouth with a smile but before any sounds could come out Raine started answering for him. "Imi, Ryu's ability to obtain woman is that of the same as a male peacock, he is brightly coloured and puffy giving his body form more appealing to females, though it would have to be females with simple tastes because I to don't see the big whoop of his appearance and a major off-put is his attitude, cocky and ill mannered."

The expression on Ryu's face changed instantly, he looked ready to slit Capricorn's throat. Could he get away with burning her alive? Probably not. As he turned towards Raine his face took on a completely new look. He was now wearing a fake tight-lipped smile. He started in a overly-dramatic voice. "Oh, my deepest apologies, how could I have possibly forgotten that you have the nose of a critter." As he spoke his voice filled with more and more venom. "Also I don't think someone who looks like they crawled out of a grave this morning is entitled to criticize my appearance.

He took no notice of Grace's and Ichiro's arrival and kept his eyes locked on Raine's. Everyone was looking at him now, he liked attention but not this kind so he shook his head and sighed. After Leo decided to go get the waitress Ryu took one final breath of the smoke and stubbed the fag on the inside of his forearm.

Leaning against the back of his chair Ryu sighed for what must have been the tenth time. He crossed his legs and started fiddling with his fingers, he was not pouting, maybe a bit. He finally acknowledged the newly arrived Zodiac's presence with a nod to Ichiro and a wink to Grace.

Once Leo came back with the waitress the usual seductive smirk. He was a frequent visitor of Spirited Away so he remembered the waitress, unfortunately he didn't remember her name. He was troubled with the we hooked up but I can't remember your name curse. After a quick glance at her name tag while she was distracted with taking the others orders he spoke. "Thank you Fei, I'll have the usual. The girl blushed at the sound of her name and Ryu's smile widened, flirting always made him feel better.

Image Chastity Pure

Chastity instantly knew that a few people witnessed her blush, because then Imi and Raine started talking about it. Chastity frowned slightly. Of course they had to go and say that. She shook her head. Chastity always hated her dirty mind. She believed in romance, sure, but the things her sick mind came up with sometimes made her want to claw her own brain right out of her head. I'm getting old, I've seen too much... Chastity sighed. Chastity was snapped out of her thoughts when her intimidating friend slammed her hand on the table, clearly angry or upset towards something that Raine said. Chastity laughed a bit when her friend slumped back down into her seat. She honestly didn't know what had happened, she completely blanked out after Raine made that comment about a peacock.

Chastity was just about to go back into daydream mode when she heard her name. She looked over at Eva, who wore a very serious expression on her face. Chastity never was and never has been scared of the look on her face, although she knew how intimidating it seemed. She actually admired this, almost envying the respect her friend must've gotten, not that she knew. Eva was being way over-dramatic and that's another thing she loved about Eva. It amused Chastity. She laughed at Eva,
Oh come on, Eva. I don't think anybody would steal or anyone even would dare to steal from a Zodiac... unless it was me.
Chastity scratched the back of her head and laughed nervously at the last part of her sentence. She slumped down in her seat and sighed. Chastity did have a point. If there was any least intimidating Zodiac, it would definitely be Chastity. She didn't know how to fight and everyone in the Spirit World knew it.

When Grace entered, she also made a comment on Ryu. Chastity exhaled. It comes as no surprise to me that everyone is paying attention to him, especially the girls. Although it's not exactly positive... Even if Grace and Ryu were probably about to go have some alone time with the "cancer stick", Chastity still smiled and waved at Grace. Chastity turned back to Eva and pat her on the shoulder.
It's alright, Eva. I can go and get it back for you.
Chastity seen Ichiro sit down and she thought that this was the perfect opportunity to escape. Honestly, she couldn't stand being around the smoke or the bad attitude anymore, both were making her feel sick. She knew that Ichiro and Eva got along well, but Chastity didn't know Ichiro too well. Sure, she would probably rather be around him than some people in the Zodiac group, but she still wasn't too familiar with him. As Chastity was about to stand up, she heard something that added on to how sick she felt.


Also I don't think someone who looks like they crawled out of a grave this morning is entitled to criticize my appearance.


Okay, at that point, it was official in Chastity's mind. She was not going to get along with this guy. Chastity knew how intimidating she wasn't, but she glared at him, even while the waitress was getting her order.
I'm fine, excuse me.
Chastity slammed her hands against the table as she stood up, then made her way angrily towards the girls' washroom. She just did not understand! How would any girl want to be with him? Chastity whipped her key out of the chest area in her dress and opened a portal. Chastity hopped inside and she was inside Eva's house. Being alone would probably let Chastity cool down a bit. Chastity searched around the house for a few minutes before she realized some obvious places she could've checked... Like sitting up against the wall right beside the entrance. Chastity sweat dropped at her own stupid mistake. She grabbed the sniper... with much effort. Actually, she could hardly hold it up firmly in her arms, so she let her arms hang slightly. She set it down on the ground for a moment so she could open a portal, leading her back into the girls' washroom.


As soon as Chastity hopped out of her portal, she was startled by a very loud scream. There was a woman standing in front of her, trying to peacefully wash her hands but then a certain Zodiac came jumping out of a portal and into a public bathroom. That's basically what it looked like and Chastity knew that. She sweat dropped and apologized, before putting her key back into her bra. She stopped. Wait, why am I keeping it in there? She blushed to herself before sliding it in her heel. She'd find a better place for that after. And so then, a weak little blonde Zodiac walked through the cafe holding a sniper rifle in her arms.
Hey, Eva! I got your-
And as if on cue, Chastity tripped and landed on her hands and knees, the gun falling on the ground. Chastity pulled the back of her dress down, not wanting to show more than she needed, but instantly realized she had better things to be worrying about. She just dropped Eva's baby.

Raine's eyes slightly widened. Had she offended them? She hadn't meant to but it seems that she had. Raine stood up from her chair.
"Ryu, rather your quip at my appearance is valid or not I am sorry for my unappealing self, and also I didn't mean to offend you I was just simply stated what I thought to be a fact, I am sorry, it seems I was mistaken, and I am also sorry for my tone when I mentioned your smoking once again I didn't mean to offend you its just that it is burning my senses and from what I can tell a few other's, I thank you for putting it out but if of next time could you please open a window before you start" Raine said stoically, she had thought these people would know by now that she never means to offend or upset, Raine just stated facts. Raine was about to apologize to Eva when her attention was swiftly brought to a falling Chastity. In moments she was by the girls side, concern etched in her green orbs as she gently took the girls arm and helped her up. Her eyes quickly scanned over the girl to make sure she wasn't injured and when she found she wasn't she yet her soft hold on Chastity go and gracefully bent down to pick up the gun. She gave Chastity a warm smile before turning to Eva and handing her the gun.

"It seems kind Chastity had gotten this for you and Eva, I hope you know I didn't mean to offend you neither, I would never want to upset anyone and it seems I have and I apologize from now on I will call it a cigarette, it was my verbal mistake and I hope you can forgive me" Raine said polity.

Leo saw Ryu quickly jump in as he returned. He didn't seem to notice him exit, which disappointed him slightly. He paid attention to the ladies too, but he at least noticed when a large mass gets up and walks through the room. Leo snarled as Ryu took an attack on Raine. Although in his own ideologies there were two different groups of spirits, he still took an attack on one of them as an attack on him. He tried to stay neutral though.

It was when Chastity stormed out that he couldn't take it anymore. He knew Ryu was looking for a fight with everyone. He turned to try and stop Chastity before she left but when she went to the ladies room it was too late. Leo turned back around and snarled again, growling slightly. He went to Ryu, but was distracted as Chastity fell. Raine quickly took over and helped her. He still went to her, taking out his handkercheif, so she could clean her face. He offered it to her and looked over. He dapped her cheek with it, then lightly tapped it with his fingers. "You okay bub?"

Once finished, he went back to Ryu. Leo was glad that he got distracted, he calmed down a bit. "What's your problem here? You come here, make the room smell, then go insulting people? Is that what you do? You come in here, pick on my friends," Leo spoke with his hands a lot, and motioned over the whole room, "Just to impress some girl?" motioning the waitress. He knew he was speaking with his accent, but he didn't really care what people thought about it. He just knew that Ryu was being aggressive with everyone, and he had to play peacekeeper.

ImageChastity patted Eva on the shoulder. "It's okay, I'll get it for you," She said, sounding a little eager.

Eva turned to her, her arm still raised. She didn't quite know how to react to that. Eva was thankful Chastity wanted to get her gun for her, but Eva still didn't want to be alone. Sure, there were other people there, but considering all that had happened in the short amount of time she was there, Eva still wasn't quite sure she wanted to talk to them. She wasn't really in the mood to be arguing today.

Eva sighed. Well, I can't be anti social forever, She thought. She smiled at Chastity, tears sparkling in her eyes. "Thanks, Chastity. You're a good friend!" Was the response she went with, along with another awkward hug.

"It's been a long time. Apologies for my lateness." Eva let go of Chastity and turned around. She could recognize that voice from anywhere. Eva's usual odd grin flashed as Ichiro walked up to their table. She waved at him. "Hey, Ichiro!" She said, happy to see him. "What's up with the tardiness?" She added sarcastically, purposely smirking now. Of course, she was just kidding around. She didn't mind him being late, as long as he was here. Both he and Chastity were basically the light of the party to her.

"Also I don't think someone who looks like they crawled out of a grave this morning is entitled to criticize my appearance."

Ryu's words sliced through the air like a knife. Chastity slammed her fists on the table, giving Ryu the nastiest look she could muster. "I'm fine, thank you." She said in an equal tone to the waitress, clearly not caring for her order, and with that got up and left their table.

Eva took a moment to process what happened. She didn't even know how to react. She completely blocked out the waitress as she repeatedly asked for her order, then moved on to the next person, slightly frustrated. All of these different emotions were flying at her she didn't know which one to express or which one was even stronger. Eva was sure there was a name that was perfect for what she was feeling, but she couldn't quite put her finger on it. She could feel the rage's hot, burning flames licking along her stomach, she could feel the awkwardness clogging her brain, she could feel the disappointment crashing down on her like thunder, she could feel the discomfort like a pillow slowly growing inside her chest, all coming at her from different directions in an odd pattern. Anger, discomfort, anger, awkward, disappointment, discomfort, and awkwardness back again. Eva leaned her elbow on the table, clutching her head as she made a pained expression. Yeah, that's it. She felt pained.

It was because Eva was so lost in thought that she missed Raine apologizing to everyone.

Eva's thoughts, however, were interrupted by a crash. Her eyes were greeted by the most unwelcoming sight anyone could ask for once she turned her head to see what had happened.

There was Chastity, lying on the floor, Eva's gun lying in front of her.

Eva paused for a moment, shoved her chair aside and rushed over to get her gun. "My baby!" She exclaimed. Although she was running, Raine had somehow gotten there before her and picked it up for her. "It seems kind Chastity had gotten this for you," The Capricorn said, handing the gun to Eva. "And Eva, I hope you know I didn't mean to offend you neither," Raine said politely. "I would never want to upset anyone and it seems I have and I apologize from now on I will call it a cigarette. it was my verbal mistake and I hope you can forgive me." At first Eva had no idea what she was talking about, but once she said "cigarette" it was clear she was apologizing for calling it a "cancer stick". Eva's eyes widened for a second, then she scratched the back of her head and nodded. "Yeah, that's alright. It happens every once in a while," She said with a small "Eva" smile. "Thanks for picking up my gun."

As soon as Raine had finished, Eva began examining her gun all over. If there was even a scratch on it, Eva was sure Chastity knew that even she would get a few words thrown at her. To Eva's relief and most likely to Chastity's as well (although for very different reasons) there wasn't any harm done to the gun. Eva sighed, clutching it to her chest, a smile on her face. "She's okay..." She whispered to herself. She strung the gun over her shoulder, feeling much better knowing her gun was with her.

It was then Eva remembered that Chastity had tripped. Eva smacked her forehead, then turned to go help Chastity. It turns out that someone was already helping her, but regardless, Eva held out her hand to Chastity to help her up. "I'm sorry, I should've came rushing right to you," She said, guilt building up in her stomach like there was no tomorrow. "I'm such a horrible friend, I don't deserve to live another day!" Before Chastity could take her hand, Eva was off doing her dramatic hand gestures again, along with her dramatic speech. She paused for a moment, then automatically turned back to Chastity and added "Oh, and thanks for getting my gun!" She smiled gratefully, then held out her hand again.

Just five more....just five more minutes....

The knocking at Jin's front door increased greatly after a few minutes, than dispersed once Jin left it alone for a few more. Sleepily Jin glanced over at the clock, which flashed the time marking his lateness, "I'm late...I just won't go."

Jin wasn't one for meetings or waking up early for that matter. He would rather sleep all day or even play outside then to attend this meeting, though this may sound rude it was the truth. This had nothing to do with any of the other members, as Jin liked them each very much. It was just the fact that he, himself, hates the fact he is a Zodiac. But it isn't his choice...he can't take it away.

Jin laid on his bed facing upward toward the ceiling of his fully furnished room. Taking a quick glance at the temperature, it flashed 50 degrees, the perfect temperature to sleep. As Jin soothed back to sleep the sun shone fiercely blinding Jin, which only caused him to farther his resolve of not going. With sluggish movements, Jin closed the curtains. Twisting back around he flopped down on his bed and closed his eyes. Once again drifting back to sleep.

"...Brother...Up...Wake..." Jin groaned at the sound of voices. He wished to ignore them, but he knew that wasn't a wise decision. Reluctantly Jin opened his unfocused eyes. To his surprise and slight amusement two young children were standing in front of Jin, staring down at him.

"Jasmine? Tristan? Why are you guys here? I thought I told everyone I couldn't play today?" In one swift movement Jin covered himself with the sheets. Though they were unbearably warm, he had no choice if he wanted to continue his sweet, or rather cold dream. It was wonderful to Jin, as he was standing in the middle of nowhere surrounded by snow, nothing but snow. "...What paradise..."

Jin was awaken by the shocking warmth of water soaking through his sheets. Without a seconds hesitation Jin throw the wet covers off of him, and smiled toward the two culprits. Both looked at Jin with merciless eyes, warning him that he had done something bad. He laughed at them kindly,"What did I do?"

Jasmine puffed out her cheeks,"I knew it Big Brother! I knew you were going to be late!"

Tristan nodded his head in agreement,"She's right! You were supposed to be at a meeting today."

Jasmine crossed her arms as she stared at Jin,"We knew you wouldn't be up, so we came to check on you! Do you know how late you are Big Brother?"

Jin looked at the clock, than back at the two...angels...who weren't backing down. After a minute of staring Jin surrendered. Stretching his left arm behind his head, Jin let out a large yawn, while peeking at the children with one of his emerald green eye. "Fine. I surrender. You guys win, I'll go to the meeting." Jin mumbled in a sleepy voice; true to his word Jin slipped out of bed and into his bathroom.

Walking out after five minutes, Jin was ready to go. Every accessory and article of clothing was in place. Jin thought he would wear something a little more...different than usual. Instead of wearing his regular white clothing, Jin wear his colored clothing. Once dressed Jin gripped his sword, which he placed by his side, and his tritant, that was in its smaller version so he could stuff it in his pocket. Unlike most of Jin's other items, his Zodiac key was always around his neck, which he fashioned as a necklace to make it easier to keep track of it.

Waving goodbye to the two children, who were still yelling at him, Jin escaped to the bright outside world.Walking down the streets toward the meeting place, people began to whisper and glance at his direction, wishing to sneak a peek of Jin. Though Jin was famous, he wasn't as famous as the others when it came to adults, as it was mostly the children who noticed him, which he enjoyed.

Approaching the Cafe, Jin was stopped short by the sound of his name being called. Turning around Jin spotted a tiny little girl glancing down at the ground. Bending down, so that he would be at her level, Jin smiled at the girl, "You need something?"

The girl froze for a second, than in a swift movement passed Jin a small box,"This is for you!"

Before Jin could say anything she had ran away. Jin laughed a little at the girl's reaction, though something felt...strange. Jin had never seen that girl before, he knows every child here, and he would have heard of a new child moving in...so who was she? Jin glanced down at the box in his hand, and opened it reliving a shining ring. "Wow its great."

Slipping it on his right hand, he smiled at the gift. Turning his attention back too the matter at hand, he walked inside the cafe. When inside he saw many people crowding the door, who seemed to be drowning in delight. That is when he knew where the others were. Without a word he maneuvered through the crowd and reached the others. "Sorry for my lateness." Jin sat down at the last empty set and glanced at everyone with a smile.

Raine's comment caused a small grin to appear on Imi's face as she sat back in her chair, and Ryu's comment only made the smile grow wider as she shook her head in disbelief. She didn't care about how blunt Ryu was being simply because she knew Raine could handle herself, but the reactions that followed from everyone else would bring an awkward feeling around the table - completed by Chasity falling.

Imi would unconsciously play with a long strand of loose hair as she sighed, she was starting to no longer see the point in this meeting since it wasn't going anywhere - quickly, but never one to give up on something new she'd continue to sit there, desperate for something interesting or useful to come from this gathering.


After telling the waitress a cup of tea was all she'd need Imi would again go back to watching the television, and within a few minutes the reporters would begin to talk about stories on Earth. One in particular, in the Province of Attica, caught her attention:

"Reports from the cable networks on Earth are reporting a series of unexplainable events in the country of Greece.

In the small, usually peaceful, Province of Attica there having been odd occurrences that have the community baffled. From flattened trees, to flatten crops, craters, missing children, and vibrations that feel like mini Earthquakes have been reported, an residents are now worried their area's most prized architecture - the ancient temple of Poseidon - could fall victim to these mysterious events."



"What a shame, a temple built for a greedy philanderer might fall." Imi would sarcastically say under her breath while thinking what the news reporters were now casually alluding to - that the natural disasters as well as the missing children sound like possible activity from multiple demon spirits.

"A demon spirit that lures children? Hmm...like a pied piper...now that would make an interesting adventure!" she thought as she stood up.

"I apologize but I'm going to have to excuse myself early, it's been um - very interesting."
Imi would smile towards everyone at table before quickly walking towards the door - so anxious to begin a new journey that she complete forgot about the small Purple Pumpkin underneath her seat.

As she reached the doorway in walked Jin, and she'd greet the smiling zodiac with a smile of her own before making her way out the room door and down the hallway until it was relatively empty and she could pull her key out from her bust undistributed - which was on a simple silver chain around her neck.


"The Temple of Poseidon" she'd continue to repeat to herself as she tried to conjure up a vivid image of the temple. It had been a very long time since she had visited this location in Greece and the only vivid images she could remember from her own experiences were of the completed temple, not the ruins it now stands as. However it was enough of an image that she knew she could open a portal and land in the Province of Attica successfully, so without further ado she'd twist her key to the right in mid air and watch as her own unique portal grew before her. She didn't bother to look and see if anyone was following her - figuring they wouldn't - and slowly but surely made her way inside of the vortex.
The portal would stay open for several seconds in Spiritus Terras before closing an opening at the bottom of Cape Sounion.

The base of the beautiful mountain was empty minus a few stragglers, an Imi would take the brief seclusion as a moment to remove her two identical swords from her hip and carry them in front of her body by the handle instead of having them hang from her side, which she knew would bring more attention to herself.


Wandering to the top of the mountain she could see a large group of people standing around the Temple of Poseidon - which looked like a shell of its former self.

"Pretty amazing what time will do to something that once stood so strongly...." she'd whisper before continuing past the crowd - who were all anxiously discussing the odd events of the last few days.
Only a few noticed her towering presence, an even though a group of children began calling out "Amazon" their parents paid no mind, giving Imi the chance to continue on unnoticed as she walked down towards the road that likely led into town - which she planned to follow but under cover of the trees which lined either side of the road.

Sunset was approaching an Imi was anxious to begin her search, however her rumbling stomach caused her mind to be diverted temporary to food. Sure, there were likely a few different demon spirits in this town seeing as how the damage reported varied, but she had a personal interest in the one luring children away and knew from ancient tales that the spirits humans called Pied Pipers typical steal their victims away at night, so there was no harm in wasting a bit of time on food or sight seeing as she waited for nighttime to fall.

A slight scowl had made his way on his face, as he noticed the others arriving. Sadly, he knew he couldn't leave despite telling himself he was allowed too. Another scowl, as the rest of the zodiac arrived, and it was way over the number of people he could tolerate.

The blonde watched, slight amusement going through his mind as he listened to the comment of Ryu's attire from the Capricorn before said man rebutted back with his own insult. Then the Virgo storming off with the Leo following after her. This was turning out to be a great idea so far.

Yes, That was sarcasm.

All this happened, and so far there was not even a single ordered placed for their supposed...gathering farce. What a joke and a waste of his time. He heard teh TV announce something about Greece? And the girl, her name was...Imi or something excused herself. Most likely to go and fight.

That would be more interesting then staying here to see how long it takes for a full fight to go on. It seemed so close, so why even bother sticking around hoping that everything would go well. He stood up from his seat, quietly mind you, to avoid the others from noticing his silent retreat.

He walked out of the cafe easily, and stuck his hand into his pocket.

The golden key sat in his gloved hands, and he held it in the air. He could feel magic running through the key as he muttered out the single command.

"Province of Attica, Temple of Poseidon."

The key built up the energy, and he turned the key in the air to open the gateway to the human world.

Image
He easily stepped through, and soon found himself in the ruins. Since it was not dark yet, he knew that the spirits would most likely not attack yet. His Taurus sword hung limply by his side, as he walked along the ruins, taking in the sight of what humans had once built so long ago. Since it was mainly rocks, and basically earth he felt comfortable here rather then in town.

The earth warrior found a place behind one of the larger ruins to shield himself from any humans that may see him. Easily morphing a chunk of rock from the ground, he sat down on it, as he watched the sun begin to set, painting the sky into an orange colored hue.

Raine watched as both Imi and Tadashi left the meeting. Raine just sighed quietly but was interuptted by the ringing of her cell phone. Pulling out the sleek touch screen Raine answered.
"Oh thank goodness Miss.Knight you answered I was afraid you wouldn't we have two problem's, there is a hydra demon sighting in Dallas, Texas and its causing some major damage, me and my crew are getting the people away but its to strong, that and I got word from one of my worker's in the Spirit World it seems there is a hexed demon sighting in the far mountain's right by the Dark Reflection Gate" the man, Tyler, sounded panicked. Raine had hired him to be her eyes and ear's when she was busy and him and his crew had been working with her for 100 years now. The fact that there was a demon spirit in Spiritus Terras slightly surprised Raine. Everyone knew that demon spirits were unable to get into the light realm without being summoned, and only demon's had the power to summon other demon's. Raine instantly knew who had summoned the hexed demon into Spiritus Terras. It was her brother, Jasper, with him being half demon and zodiac spirit he was the only possibility. Raine's eyes narrowed at the thought of her brother. No one else knew of Raine's true heritage nor did they know she had a brother and she planned on keeping that little fact to herself, she didn't want to trouble the other Zodiac. With a quick thanks Raine hung up and stood from her chair, an aura of authority and confidence now surrounded her.

"There are two siting of demon's at the moment, Jin, Kira, Ichiro, Grace and Eva I need you to go and deal with a hydra demon in Dallas, Texas, Grace you are head of that mission so take you team and lead at once, Leo, Kai, Chasity and Ryu you are coming with me, there's a hexed demon sighting in the White Mountain's in Spiritus Terras near the Dark Reflection Gate, we need to move now before it gets close to the mountain towns" Raine ordered.

"I will meet you all in the east field in 2 minutes" Raine said then left the cafe and headed towards the east field. Once she was there she dialed both Imi and Tadashi leaving them a voice message that said if they weren't dealing with anything at the moment for Tadashi to meet her in the moutain's and for Imi to go to Dallas. She then hung up and waited.

Within an hour she had managed to trade a few gold coins for multiple plates of Stuffed Grape Leaves, Spanakopita, and Baklava, as well as learn about all the odd happenings around the province. Most elders were turned off by her appearance but the youth in the area had no problem answering her list of questions - as long as she answered theirs as well, which ranged from "Who did you hair" to "What's that thing dangling for your hip?"



By the time she began to make her way towards a local church the sun had dropped out of the sky - leaving just a faint trace of itself via orange streaks.
"I know another portal opened as I reached town, I wonder who followed me....." she'd think to herself, before making her way inside the building and then up to the top of it's bell tower.

Sitting atop the towers circular roof wasn't possible, however she found it quite easy to swing her legs over the side of the window-like openings, and from her current vantage point she'd be able to see the entire town easily as well as the wooded area that led to the Temple and beyond.




"A pied piper.....I wonder what kind of tune such a spirit plays.....maybe it's slow an entrancing, or perhaps it's energetic and joyful!"

Imi's excited thoughts would begin to settle down as an hour, then two, passed. She had noticed a group of trees moving far off in the distance within the first hour and figured it was the other demon spirit in the area, but she was determined to wait for the one luring children.

"Perhaps the demon left this small town..." she muttered as she fiddled with her hair, however no sooner did she begin to complain did a light melody begin to play. It was so soft at first that she thought maybe she was just hearing music from someones house, however as the flute continued to play Imi would spot a young girl, no older than eight, skipping down the road - soon to be followed by a handful of others.

"Well look at that...." the Zodiac whispered, before jumping down to the roof of the chapel and then to the road.
Imi followed the trail of children, albeit at a distance, until they suddenly detoured off the road and headed into the woods.
"Oh great." she complained. Thankfully though there was enough moonlight that she could see where was going, the children however seemed to be using the music as direction instead of their eyes.




After several minutes of dodging through trees Imi would finally make her way out into a clearing a couple hundred yards from the Temple of Poseidon. The Children were dancing hand in hand in a circle, all but one, who was aimlessly walking towards the edge of the cliff.
"No!" Imi would call out, but she was too late - the young boy would walk off the edge.

Within seconds she'd be there herself, peering down expecting to see a small body laying on rocks. However instead she'd see a young lanky boy staring up at her.
"What the...." was all she'd be able to get out before the boy disappeared.


"Now you're not a kid, are you?" a child-like voice said behind her, causing Imi to turn around sharply, where she'd come face-to-face with the same boy who had just been staring up at her.
"You...."
It was obvious for more than one reason that this was the demon she was looking for, but the most obvious in the moment was the golden pan flute he was holding.
"Me? What about me....I'm just a boy."
The smile on the demons childish face was growing annoying, but instead of getting angry Imi would begin to smile herself.

"Oh but of course, so-" she'd pause and take a few steps closer to the boy as she unhooked her meteor hammer from her hip - keeping it at it's shrunken size for the time being. "-you'd have no problem with holding an enchanted object then - would you not?"
As she held out the weapon the grin on the boys face would quickly vanishing, and the smirk on her own would grow.


"What's the matter? Oh, could it be that you're afraid?"
"Pfft, afraid? Of that small thing, not in the least woman."
"Cute, but we both know you couldn't touch this without showing your true form......but if you wish to play dumb by all means, play dumb, it really doesn't matter."

Without another word Imi would flick the Meteor Hammer down towards the ground, causing it to steadily grow until it reached it's full size. The boy would jump back several yards but he was well within range of her weapon, an he'd be unable to escape it as Imi slung the Hammer towards him - wrapping the chain around his waist.



Much like expected the enchanted weapon caused a reaction that forced the demon to transform into it's true form.

As the boy grew into a warped humanoid figure with greyish green skin, standing nearly three stories tall, Imi would uncoil her weapon from around the demons waist as the children suddenly stopped dancing - their trance being broken as the pan flute - now enlarged in proportion with the spirit - hit the ground.


"Celestial wench!" the demon bellowed as he struck at the ground with a clenched fist.
Imi easily dodged the attack and created three clones of herself in a circle around the creature.

"Now what did you do with that boy, the one who went off the cliff side, is he-"
A deep chuckle would escape the malevolent spirits mouth, causing a scowl to form on Imi's face.
"The boy? Well I ate his heart of course, how do you think I kept my youthful appearance girl!?"

"Well then..."
Imi an each of her clones would in unison spin their Meteor Hammers up in the air, much like a cowboy would a lasso, for a brief moment before one by one wrapping the chain around the demons neck. Once secure they'd twist their chain so that the circular hammers would each release a blade - pinning the creates neck in place.

"Y-you....filthy we-"
"-not that word again for crying out loud!" she interrupted, before pulling the target towards the ground.

A loud scream, one mixed with frustration and pain, would escape the demons mouth as his back hit the the ground hard - causing the blades to rip at his neck.


"You eat the hearts of children, yes?" Imi's fifth replication would taunt after appearing on the chest of the pied piper. "Well...I fillet the hearts of beasts."
In a blink of an eye Imi's 5th replication would unsheathed both swords and plunge them into the heart of the demon. For good measure she'd twist the blades in a complete circle to cement the deed.



After the demon disintegrated into a black powder Imi's replications would disappear in a poof of white dust, leaving only her true self standing with a fully extended Meteor Hammer.

The sound of whimpering children would snap her back into reality and cause her to shrink the chained weapon.
"Einai entaxei...."* she'd say as she hooked the shrunken Meteor Hammer back to her hip, trying to reassure them everything would be okay in their native tongue, but as she approached them they simply cowered more. However when the ground began to shake the children would suddenly all run behind her.

"Don't worry, it's far enough away - we're fine. Let me walk you home."
She'd repeat her statement in Geek as she squatted down to their level, all in a bid to earn their trust.
The children were uneasy at first, but when the ground shook again they were more than willing to use Imi as their escort.









"Kali nichta!"* she'd say to the children before they ran back towards their houses. The ground had vibrated a few more times during their walk an Imi could sense it was the other demon spirit.


"Why couldn't there just be one?" she'd complain with a sigh, before backtracking to the edge of the woods.
After taking a second to estimate what direction the spirit was Imi would slowly but sure begin to head towards it.





* Einai entaxei = "It's okay" in Greek.
Kali nichta = "Goodnight" in Greek.

Tadashi opened his eyes as the waves demons let off got stronger, signalling it was almost time for it to show itself. The Taurus zodiac blinked again, before getting up. The blonde made his way into the forest, following the demon's trail, as well as the small steps of the human children that were enraptured by the sound of the flute.

Though he paused, as he heard another voice. A woman's voice, which was no doubt the other zodiac that had beat him to the demon it seemed. He watched from behind a tree, as the zodiac kill the demon, after conversing with him. A frown pulled at his lips, as the woman killed it easily.

Tadashi had a general idea of how the other fought, but not enough in his opinion. He knew the general powers they possessed abut not enough to satisfy him in how they would fight a real full out battle. Tadashi would need to observe more of the other Zodiacs before deeming who was weak, and who was strong.

As the zodiac led the young humans back toward the town, he stepped out and closed his eyes. There was still one more. Typical. Cowardly spirits like that always traveled in packs. The earth warrior turned, before walking in the direction.

He as pulled to the east end of the forest, and soon was greeted by a pale, brunette figure. In her hands were a silver pan flute, similar to the one the other had played. His blue eyes narrowed, and he drew the Taurus blade that hung around his waist. Teh demon turned, before offering a small smile toward the man.

"It seems I attracted the wro-" Though the sentence was stopped, as he charged and sliced out the blade in a Vertical curved slash, making a crescent moon that formed as that moon reflected off. His blue eyes hardened into icicles as he scowled at the demon, as it landed behind, flustered.

"How rude! Most Zodiacs talk you know!" came an outraged female voice that rang in his ears. He scoffed before shaking his wrist out and holding the blade in front of him.

"...I don't talk to herbivores..." He muttered, before charging again.

The demon jumped back, but a second to late as his blade made contact with the demon's flesh. Black blood spurted out, and he flicked it off his blade. He didn't need it rusting from such a weak prey.

There was always more prey to be found.

The demon shrieked, as it turned to its true form. It was the exact replica of the other demon the zodiac had taken care of, except it was a darker shade of green. Perhaps it would create more entertainment.

The demon tried to punch, but it looked so slow in his eyes. The earth manipulated into a dome around him, and the second it contacted with the earth, the rock moved again, around the fist and trapping it. After that was done, he stabbed the ground, and soon floating segments of rock, morphed like sharp daggers shot at its eyes. It hit easily, and the demon shreiked, filling the night air with the stench of blood.

Tadashi smirked inwardly, before drawing his blade out again, and soon it slashed its hand off, with the reinforced earth. The demon shouted again, and soon fell over with a loud boom that easily shook the forest ground easily. When teh demon fell, Tadashi was right by it's neck. And soon the blade came down, and spikes of earth shot up, shooting through various parts of the demons body, including the neck, heart, legs, arms torso and of course head. The crack of the skull being broken was something he could hear.

It was indeed over kill, but he never held back in a fight.

As he sheathed his sword, the demon vanished, leaving black ash behind. With a wave of his hand, the earth missles, and various boulders receded back into the earth, and in no time it was back to the original scenery. With that done, yawned to himself before taking off the black gloves, sticking them in his pocket. He fixed his coat, making it neat before deciding to wait if more prey would come out.

Imi would stop in her tracks as another pan pipe melody began to play - this one seemingly higher in pitch.
"Dammit!" she'd mutter.
By the vibrations the demon she was tracking set off it was likely the one flattening trees and crop fields - a true menace, but having a soft spot for children she couldn't help but turn back and head towards where she heard the music coming from at top speed, hoping to reach demon before it attracted the children too far from their homes. However several seconds into her mad dash the music would suddenly stop, causing Imi to come to a stop as well.

"It stopped playing? But why would..."
The Zodiac's thought would be cut short at the sound of a voice yelling up ahead in the distance, which caused her to take off in the direction she was going before.


By the time she arrived on scene Imi would glimpse the true form of a demon that was nearly identical to the one she had just killed, and underneath it stood Tadashi - the Earth Warrior.
"So it was Taurus who followed me." Imi whispered to herself with a smirk, before leaning against a nearby tree to observe a battle she knew was over before it began.





After the demon turned to ash and the Earth in front of her was resettled Imi would push herself off the tree trunk and begin to walk out of the woods.

"Very nice, but a bit overkill don't ya think?" she'd joke.
"I was wondering who followed me but I'm surprised it's you, I know how much you just love get togethers with the others - you must be itching to get back."
Imi would come to a stop a few feet back from the other Zodiac and shove her hands in her shorts back pockets. She knew Tadashi was easily the least sociable of the Zodiacs, but she still couldn't resist a couple jokes.

Before she could think of something else witty to say the ground would shake once more. It wasn't nearly as violent as the last time though, suggesting that the larger demon is even further away than it was before - which caused her to sigh.

"There's a big one lingering outside of town, probably in the farmland by now. We wouldn't be very good at our jobs if we let it be, no?"

Pulling her shrunken Meteor Hammer off her hip Imi would begin to twirl the weapon at her side as she headed towards the deserted roadway.
"Come on, I don't bite!"

She was anxious to wrap things up as soon as possible and spend the rest of the night taking in the scenery, even if it was with someone who probably wanted to glue her mouth shut. Anything was better than sitting around a table at what felt like Spiritus Terras's most awkward family reunion.
