β—¬ F U L L N A M E β—¬
Aella Adrastos

β—¬ A G E β—¬
18

β—¬ S E X U A L I T Yβ—¬
Heterosexual

β—¬ L I K E Sβ—¬
She is quite fond of tea, As it is very soothing to the mind and body, She is also quite fond of foreign objects, especially Japanese ones.

β—¬ D I S L I K E Sβ—¬
Idiots, They act without thinking.

β—¬ P E R S O N A L I T Yβ—¬
Soft Spoken and Elegant, are a few of the many words used to describe Aella. When you first meet her, She will greet you with a smile, She is somewhat of a people person, but only acquaints people she finds interesting and trustworthy, which is a small quantity. Aella is somewhat distant as well, She is seen day dreaming often, pondering life as it goes on. She is in love with Japanese culture, Immersing herself in it. She has a very polite way of speaking, Never using "slang" or cursing. She is slow to anger, however people don't seem to indulge all their time into doing so. Aella personality has opened up a large amount of people in the Blue Empire, She is also shown a playful side, Usually teasing her small group of actual friends that she has.

She is also quite fond of money, being quite eager to accept any job, No matter the difficulty or payment. Her love for money is not necessarily classified as greed, As she still has limits on what she will do to obtain it, but more so to collect, A hobby that baffles even herself, But she likes to conserve money, Not spending any of it at the drop of a hat.

Mysterious is another way to describe her, Not classified as a loner, but more so, Someone that has high standards, When she makes allies she wants someone to trust, not someone who would just abandon her when it is convenient. Social, but Strict, If you want to have any kind of relation with her, You better start working.

β—¬C H A R A C T E R A P P E A R A N C E β—¬
In contrast with her prestigious personality, She has somewhat of a small stature. She is quite small, earning her the nickname of "ShortStop" from her friends. She seems to hold no discomfort for her size, As she feels that being short is not as bad as most people think, Stating that being Short can make her more agile in dodging attacks from the opposition. As for clothes, Her usual attire consist of a modified yukata. This specific yukata is not as tight, As the entire shoulder area remains uncovered, Designed to give Aella more freedom to move around, Her eyes are the color of ruddy and her hair is pitch black. The guild branding that she despised receiving, Is located on her left thigh.


β—¬W E A P O N \ S T Y L E β—¬
Again, On contrast with how she acts, How she fights is a different story, Using specialized rings that limit her magic power usage, She is able to punch people all she wants, Her speed is quite impressive too, Being one of the physically strongest wizards in the guild.

β—¬ A B I L I T I E S β—¬
Aella's ability is Super Strength. Her power by itself is not easily controlled, As it increases in strength with the proportion of the user's anger, Which in contrast is not something that Aella is fond of. However with years of practice, It can contentiously increase in the amount that is able to be used and can be unleashed without killing anyone, Including herself. With her body at full strength, She is able to bring down large buildings with one punch, And kill a human instantly in one hit.


β—¬L I M I T A T I O N Sβ—¬
Although she has the strength of a god, She doesn't have the body of one, If she uses too much force in one limb, Such as the arm of leg, She has a high chance of shattering her own body on impact, or maybe even worse. Also, To be honest, Everyone here is able to fling various objects at each other, Since Aella is a physical fighter, Being far away from her target doesn't help much.

β—¬ H I S T O R Y β—¬
Aella was taken in by a prestigious family, This family was well known and well off, As Arthur Adrastos, Aella's father is the 4th richest person in america. Arthur owns a large variety of companies, Ranging to Fast-Food to Cell Service, He effectively runs every one. However, Arthur was greedy and only cared about fame and fortunate. Aella's real family died in Asia, Because of insufficient funds, Both of her parents got sick, protecting their beloved child. As Arthur was looking for ways to boost his popularity, He decided on hosting a child from a foreign country, To show how "kind" he was. However, She was shunned as an outsider, Only for show. Of course, She was given a bed and food, but she wasn't more then just another maid, Tasked in doing tedious jobs, Sure, it was better then living on the street, But sometimes, Someone who cares for you, Is priceless.


β—¬D I S C O V E R Y β—¬
Aella knew her power from the beginning, She relatively kept her power hidden, In Asia, One of the main factors in her survival is that she was able to fight on her own, Surprising and Scaring the rug rats that tried to prey on her, However, She was well aware of Arthur's opinion on magic. Her father thought that magic was for the people who couldn't work, Stating that "real power, Must be earned". Aella was careful not to expose the slightest trace, As her stepfather despises her enough, She doesn't want to be on the streets again.

However, All good things must end at some point, Arthur was on the hit-list of almost every business owner in america, Arthur effectively seized control of every industry, And became the king of every one. Of course, Multiple Assassins were sent to end his reign, and Of course, Some of them failed, As Arthur's intelligence was able to save his own life multiple times. However, As Arthur was sitting at his desk, A man pulled a gun, Aiming right for his head, Arthur laughed at the man, Stating that his body guards would surely save him, However, The building was almost empty, As this was all staged and Arthur's death was the final act. The truth was that, His subordinates have planned this all along, Leaving the building and Making sure no one came back inside, The people that were left, consisted of a few maids and Aella, After hearing a scream from the upper level, She rushed inside, witnessing the event, Arthur has a deep bullet wound in his chest, And was on the ground, The man was slowly inching forward, Taking his sweet time, So Arthur could suffer. Aella couldn't stand to see such a sight, Of course, Arthur wasn't someone she wanted to save, But this death was too gruesome for anyone to experience. Aella used all he force she could, And punched the man. The man went flying into the nearest wall, A loud crash being heard, Before he fell to the ground.

Run...She thought, Aella rushed out of the building, If she stayed any longer, She would have been framed for Arthur's Death. And be put to death herself. After sprinting for some time, She stopped at an abandoned house, Filled with life, And filled with death. Many mages took refuge in this small, rundown, building, and Aella was no exception. She was given specialized rings that would reduce her magic input, making it more safe to go all-out. Although, Joining at the age of 15, She is a proud member of Blue Legion, And for the next 3 years, Her title remained unchanged.

"6th One"

Aella muttered as a large punching bag soared across the building, It found it's home in someone's noggin, Leaving a nasty bruise on the person's head, However, The person was either too scared or too tired to care, Business was a bit slow, And on top of that, people were too exhausted to even get up from the seat they were residing on, Even the person that just got injured, rose from the ground and shuffled to his seat, Like the flying punching bag incident never transpired.

Aella, on the other hand was quite excited. Of course she looked at the board right when she entered, Especially at the request to slay the Nandi Bear. The reward was quite immense, And she wasn't going to pass up the opportunity. She also glanced at the other jobs, But they didn't really peak her interest, Killing an over-sized snake and soul-sucking wolf sounded like a good way to pass time, But their rewards were less then appealing, With a small team, She would be more then happy to take them both on, But, The Nandi Bear's reward was more then the two bounties combined, So that shifted to her top priority, Of course she needed a team, But Blue empire had a few members that would suffice. She almost always forgot about the tax, 10% off every reward is used for maintaining the guild, But this time she didn't really mind, The reward was so large that 2000 dollars seemed like a small price, if she at least got some funds out of it, bragging about partaking in the hunt of this beast didn't seem half-bad either.

As Aella thought about the things she would purchase with the money, A intimating man sat on the podium and spoke, Ajax is a man that is well respected by his enemies and his allies, And Aella was no exception, As always, Aella listened to every word he said and clung to them. After his speech, Aella got right to work, She hung up the 7th punching bag and started rapidly hitting it.

She forgot about getting permission, Of course she got accepted to participate in one other 5-star, but she didn't do much, She wasn't really able to get that close to the target, Making her get a minimal share of the reward, But this time she would get the crushing blow.

It's kind of funny, Aella doesn't train to get stronger, She trains to gain more control over her magic, The last time she went all out, She was in a wheel chair, She broke her left arm and wrist, And both her legs refused to function, It was quite devastating. Aella, at least she got a large share of the reward, but she wasn't able to participate in missions for 4 weeks, Surviving on cup noodles and cheap cans of soda.

She recently recovered, And she finally got back into the swing of things, And was more then eager to partake in another mission, Money, Respect, Strength, She wanted all of it. And she wasn't going to back down on that 5 star mission.

"7th one"

A punching bag soared through the air, Flying into the direction of an arbitrary guild member, Hopfully they didn't care, Because Aella sure didn't.

Tiny lights and sounds emitted from the electrical device being played in a man’s hands as he laid on the bench, facing upwards towards the ceiling. His eyes showcased a surprising amount of concentration despite the fact that his body was completely relaxed and at ease. Kayle had been trying to beat the level on his game, β€œWorld of Warriors”, for some time now. Each time he got to the boss he managed to screw it up, and sure enough just as he was getting that little bit farther than he had ever gotten, the electronic equivalent of β€˜Wah wah wah’ sounded. Kayle sighed, letting the game fall to his chest as his arms fell over the side of the bench and touched the floor.

Nope...not touching you for at least another ten minutes. Kayle thought as he stared up at the ceiling, looking over just in time to see a punching bag smack another member of the guild into the floor. His eyes peered over for a second, recognizing Aella and giving a slight smirk. Not the safest way to pass one’s time when in the presence of others, but he would be damned if that wasn’t funny. It wasn’t long after that moment that their illustrious leader came down from his high tower to present them with the latest info on new targets. Kayle pulled out his phone as the man demanded that they be done by the end of the week. He pressed a few buttons, got into his online banking, and a grimace appeared on his face. That low already? What the hell have I been buy-....right, games. Kayle thought to himself as he slipped his phone into his pocket once more and sat up from the bench.

With his funds in question, it wasn’t whether he wanted to do a bounty at the current moment, but which one. He slowly stood up, stretching his arms slightly as he made to walk over to the board. There was a brief moment, out of the corner of his eye that he saw something flying his way, and took a casual step back as yet another punching bag came flying through the air. It missed him by inches, his bangs actually fluttering from the force as he watched it sail into a wall. It was funny when it was happening to other people, not so much him. β€œNot that I don’t appreciate someone keeping me on my toes, but maybe your energy would be better spent doing something productive...like punching bouncers...or wrestling an alligator.” Kayle remarked dryly at the small woman before continuing his trek towards the board.

There weren’t too many people around it, the general atmosphere at the guild seeming to be at a low level today. Maybe a few stories of victory would cheer everyone up by the end of the week, if they were lucky. He ended up standing next to...some woman that he couldn’t place the name of. He hadn’t seen her around much, and he liked to think that he was fairly observant of everything around him. Maybe she was new, or maybe she stayed to herself. Now the name thing was going to bug him for awhile, but he had another problem on his mind.

β€œBitch, bird, wolf, snake or...does that seriously say β€˜Nandi Bear’?” Kayle asked out loud to no one in particular. β€œSomeone apparently lost the game of life when they named that thing.” Kayle stated once more, again his voice relatively low as he more or less talked to himself. As much as he liked the idea of a 230 grand payout on the Nandi bear, which would forever remain in his head as the Big Bad Teddy Bear, he didn’t know enough people to warrant teaming up for it. Most of his jobs up to this point had been solo operations, and many of them within city limits where he could truly utilize his abilities. From what he was going to gather here, there wasn’t really a chance for that with these bounties.

His hand rested on the Amarok creature finally, ripping it from the board and holding it in front of him slightly. β€œIf there’s no arguments, there’s a bank account that needs to be rescued by yours truly.” Kayle folded the parchment and shoved it into an inside pocket on his trench coat before giving a slight nod to the others in front of the bounty board and turning to walk away.

"Like ants to a picnic." Geraldine sighed, watching as the bounty board was immediately surrounded by young enthusiastic faces. Dark blue eyes flickered at the sight of a sudden movement, un-phased as Aella's punching bag soared through the room like a poorly executed rocket.

"Hey!" He barked, pointing a manicured finger in her direction. "Do that outside, you heathen!"

It came as little surprise to see Ajax already disappear from sight. He had probably stormed back up to his room the moment Geraldine had turned his attention away. Eagerly searching the area for sight of his co-officer, he let out a dissatisfied grumble. There were 3 people in charge here, and two of them were off avoiding responsibilities. That left Geraldine alone to sort out the mayhem.

"You!" He snapped at Kayle, watching as the boy carelessly ripped a bounty from the board. "If you try at that bounty alone, you're dead! And if the hunt doesn't kill you, I will!"

Honestly. He grumbled to himself, crossing his thin arms under his make-shift bosom. It's not as if Castor would have actually been of any use, but he was at least intimidating. His glare could cut like a knife, and it sure as hell made Geraldine's life easier. After all, the self-expressive drag queen wasn't one to be taken seriously.

Sighing in defeat, he slumped back into the gentle arms of a nearby leather couch. He'd cross one leg over the other best he could in his restrictively tight pencil skirt, and watch as money-greedy hands snatched at the fresh bounties.

Ants are far more organized.

A Collaborative Post Between Eileen(Senpai) and Maria(MaccoTango)





While Maria couldn't complain about the dinner she just had, she definitely wanted to whine about the lack of sweets in the Guild Hall. Scouring the premises was a futile search, only disappointing and making her crave sugar even more. She'd been living there for a month and the blonde felt like she spent more time trying to re-stock the kitchen than going after bounties. It felt harder to do, considering the way some people went through food. Yeah, Blue Empire provided most basic necessities, but other things they were on their own. No way was Ajax going to provide for all the sweettooths in the guild. She wouldn't do it if she were him.

With a sigh, she shut the door to the fridge, finally accepting that there was no form of dessert anywhere.

She made her way to the common area, where others milled and idled around doing their own thing. "Would anyone else like to come with me to the pastry shop? I'm craving sweets." Already Maria had her purse, ready to move out the moment she got a response or none at all. Maria wasn't going to wait around. She wanted that cake.

A rather loud yawn made its way around the common area from a face that most members of Blue Empire knew very well. Though dinner was already done and over with, all members having had their fill, she lay down taking up an entire sofa with a turkey leg in one hand. The life of the food was rather short-lived as the almost-completely carnivorous woman ate it away until not a scrap of meat was on the bone. Lazily tossing the bone to the side, falling just short of a waste bin, she pat her stomach a few times with the most content grin upon her face that one could have. "Ahn... Tameleuic. Almost like slow-roasted lizard belly." The jungle-origined woman nostalgically sighed out, though she did feel a certain emptiness in her stomach still. The woman who could devour a king's feast and still have room for dessert would not be so easily filled... "Dessert! Of course, that is what is the missing!" Her thick accent shown through in her exclamation as she sat upright.

As if answering a call, one of the cute newer girls, whose name Eileen could just not remember, came to the common area and asked for someone to accompany with her to get sweets. Before she had quite realized she had moved, Eileen was already up and behind the shorter woman, draping her arms over her shoulders and wrapping around like a scarf. "I will be the accompany! I have not had cake since last birthday, and Sycdan does not give out the sweet sugars. I will let you get for me the pastor... pasteria...." She struggled to find the word, giving up with a shrug that still kept a hold on the smaller woman. "You may get for me the sugar snack food, please." Though it may have sounded a tad demanding or condescending, her translation work led her to believe that she was being absolutely polite to the other girl. "Let us make with the go. So cdusylr lyhhud luhdyeh edc aqledasahd!" Her excitement led her to subconsciously swap to her native tongue as she finally relinquished her hold on the girl's shoulders and make her way to the door. "Lusa, lusa, mad ic ku!"

"Oh, um, sure!" Her name was... Eileen? Castor had given her a basic rundown of who was who in Blue Empire during her stay, and this woman did fit the description. The way she spoke was off-putting. Maria could feel herself get mildly insulted, but the blond male did mention something about English not being her first language. It was apparent anyway, with the way she struggled with the words "pastry shop". Patience was a virtue, and one she prided herself on having in abundance. She lightly shrugged off Eileen's arms, who complied and headed for the door. Maria followed suit. This was going to be... an interesting excursion, for lack of a better word.

A jumble of excited gibberish fell out of her companion's lips, which brought forth a question of her own. "What did you just say?" It was definitely not a language she was familiar with. "I don't think I've heard the way you speak before. Where did you come from?" A genuine query; Maria liked knowing who she was dealing with. It usually provided a point of interest for conversation at least.

From just outside the the Guild Hall, the blonde could already spot the bakery. "You see that sign over there?" She used her free hand to point in its general direction. "That's the pastry shop."

The shorter girl did not retaliate with violence or loud words. That was good enough to earn more favor from Eileen. Some people did not take too kindly to being touched for some reason... "I am the very excited for pastrami." She stopped in her tracks with a snicker.
I mean the pastra. Pastrami is the meat thing."
She still didn't quite get it right, but it was close enough for her not to notice. An excitement put a light spring in her step in the anticipation. Not expecting the questions that came from the sweets girl, she smiled. Few ever asked about her culture, apart from Daylran Morgan. "I apologize for the confuse. I say in my native tongue sometimes when excited. Or drunk. Especially while drunk." She let out a laugh for some reason or another before continuing. "I said to you that my stomach is excited. Then I said to follow me." Nodding, she slowed her pace to match the other girl's, since a conversation had started.

"As for where I am from, it is beautiful place. Jungle forest, not touched by metal or city. The man say that I am from America South?" She couldn't quite remember specifically which country, or even the continent's proper name, but it didn't mean enough to her to remember. "First white-skinned man come to my village and hunt with me. I ask him to bring me here, and here I stay. City is like jungle that never sleep. Always something new to find and eat. Is very exciting. Much like sugar sweet foods!" In her head, it all just came full circle. At the end of her explanation, the pastry shop was pointed out to her. With a nod, she studied the sign a moment. "Oh, pastry. That is word I look for. Pastry is sugar sweet things." Better late than never. "What is it that we will be eating? The doughnut? Or maybe it will be a pee?" A giggle escaped her quickly. "I mean pie, my mistake. I apologize." With a soft come-down sigh, she opened the door for Maria. Like a gentleman, Morgan always said when he did it for her. So that was what it felt like to be a gentleman? Alright, not bad. "So what is our snack treat? I am excited to eat it all!"


Eileen's word choices brought a small chuckle out of Maria. It was nice that she actively made the effort to correct herself. However, her answers only served to bring more questions to the blonde's mind. "South America? That's quite a ways from here. But I'm glad you're enjoying San Clemente. It's home for me, and always has been. I grew up here." It was a short walk and before long they stood in front of the entrance to the shop.

"And yes, the word is pastry. Pastrami's delicious, but not what I want for tonight." A look of surprise, quickly followed by a short burst of laughter was her reaction at Eileen's mistake with the word pie. "Thank you for holding open the door." The bell chimed as they entered, and there was a cheerful greeting from a male brunette who worked behind the register. She gave him a nod of recognition, before turning towards the displays near the counter. Considering they were at the tail-end of the workday, there wasn't much stock left.

A small smiled appeared as she recognized most of her favorites were still available. "Hmm, what about we have both and then some?" Maria felt like being a bit greedy tonight. "We can get some doughnuts for ourselves, then get a whole pie and cake to bring back to the hall." It's not like that was going to last past two hours given the number of people and appetites in Blue Empire. "You want to eat here, or get the doughnuts to-go?"

Both. More. A certain fire lit up in Eileen's eyes as she felt her stomach suddenly empty... despite just having a large dinner. "Do you speak with the truth? More than just pie? Oh, happy day! Drec haf vneaht ec fuhtanvim!" Hopefully Maria would not choose to regret those words, as Eileen did not carry money on her ever. She truthfully left it with Morgan since he could manage her finances well... and simply forgot about it all and let other people take care of buying her things. "It is very convenient that there are places to obtain food things. It takes from thrill of hunt, but very good for lazy days!" Something she seemed to have plenty of lately, going down to the store was certainly much easier... "Let us do the eating now, then. I feel as if I may fall over from hunger now. Sweet sugar rings with the frost tops and the bread pies with fruit and chocolates in center..." She barely caught her saliva before it overflew in her mouth, gulping it down hungrily. "I will take one of the everything!"


Well, fuck. At least there wasn't much stock to begin with, so the total cost wouldn't be as bad as expected. Maria was enough of a regular that she knew the place accepted card at least. That was a relief. She'd severely underestimated her company's appetite; Eileen was probably one of the main reasons why Blue Empire's pantries were always empty.

But first, let's see if she could attempt some damage control. She looked to the slighty bewildered (and highly amused) employee working the counter, who was ready to punch in their order. Think fast, Maria. "Eileen, aren't the new bounties coming in tonight? We should probably get back soon. We'll eat here another time." Hopefully she wouldn't be too upset by the idea. "Buying and bringing everything is a bit impractical, so instead... we'll get a dozen doughnuts, apple pie and strawberry shortcake. Got that, Mark?" Hopefully that would be enough to sate her, at least temporarily.

The brunette cheerfully nodded, punching in her order and efficiently scanning her card right away. "Yup, I'll get it ready within five minutes. I can separate two rings so you can eat it on your way out, if you like?" Maria nodded, pleased with the service.

She took a seat near the counter, placing back her wallet into her purse. The troubles of carrying around so many things. "Alright, once our goods arrive we carry them back to the hall, okay Eileen?" Maria was personally looking forward to that shortcake. "I don't think I'll be able to carry them all by myself."

"Oh, you know my name? Excellent. No need to share, then." Eileen couldn't recall introducing herself to this new girl. But she had a very valid point; the bounties were coming in tonight! It seemed the excitement would never end. "Is about time! I have waited for too long, sitting on couch and storing foodstuffs. I will take big challenge this time. Too much wait." Without any confusion, the "big challenge" would refer to the five-star bounty. Her head ran wild with thoughts on what the target could be. Perhaps this time it would be a full dragon! Or a unicorn, it had been a long time since she'd caught a glimpse of that thing. When Maria sat down, Eileen just paced around the counter in thought, her energy leaving her unable to stay in one place. "You are new to Blue Empire, no? What is your name? What do you do? Many people in guild, very incredible magicks! I love to do meet new people." She dropped her arms onto the counter and rested her head upon them, looking at the new girl, as she awaited an answer. "Also, I will do share and carry sweet treats to guild. Is no problem. Just give donut to mouth and I will be the help."


A chuckle escaped. "I'm a bit new around here, so I haven't set my sights that high yet. It sounds exciting though. And yes; Castor, my roommate, gave me a quick rundown of who was who in the guild." Blue eyes watched Eileen, as if that would help contain the energy the woman possessed as she paced the floor. The sudden barrage of questions caught her offguard; Maria wasn't used to people being curious about her. She simply blinked in surprise, slightly overwhelmed by Eileen's intensity, then swiftly recovered.

"My name is Maria, I've only been a member for a month." A small smile formed on her lips. There was a hint of pride in her voice as she spoke about her powers. "I can replicate other people's magic with a touch. I'll show you next time, we might wind up in the same group after all."

"And here's your order, ladies. From top to bottom it's the cake, pie, and then donuts." Mark came out of the kitchen, three boxes stacked on top of each other. He placed their purchases on the counter where Maria sat, and disappeared back into the kitchen to bring out the donuts they'd eat on their way out. "Enjoy your food!"

Without hesitating, she picked up one of the sugary rings and brought it to Eileen's lips. "I'll carry the cake and you can handle the doughnuts and pie?" Seemed like a fair enough division of work; after all, the blonde did pay for the meal.

"Castor is your roommate?" There was a touch of jealousy in her voice that didn't bother hiding itself. "You are lucky girl. It is very hard to get in his... ah well. I suppose that you are both lucky, hm?" She laughed lightly before clamming herself up with the doughnut and offering Maria a wink. Taking the pastries and pie, as well as the cake, she easily strode outside the door and back to the sidewalk. Half a donut rested on the top box as Maria caught up with her. "I do want to look to your power. We could do a fun many thing, Seselg." And thus, Maria's nickname was bestowed upon her. "Let us go. I have an itch for the hunt."

"Lucky?" There was a look of disbelief on Maria's face before she realized what exactly Eileen was referring to. A look of distaste followed by a hollow bark of laughter made thoughts clear. "No, nothing like that. If he ever made a move like that to me, I'd probably use his own powers against him." Unfortunately for Castor, Maria was dead serious. Memories of her mother and her "assistant" were still something that came to mind whenever relationships were brought up, and made her hesitant of them. So what if she was twenty years old and never been in one; worse things could happen. The blonde wouldn't mind remaining single forever.

The name Eileen gave her was strange, but one she decided she liked well enough to respond to. "Say-seul... I can't pronounce it. What does that mean?" Definitely harder than French, one of the languages she grew up with.

She caught up to the taller woman's stride, looking at the three boxes Eileen had chosen to carry. "Wait I was going to carry the cake... never mind." The excitement Eileen had over the bounties was infectious; Maria could feel herself quicken her own pace. The walk back to the Guild Hall proved shorter than their walk towards the pastry shop.

Upon entering the lobby area, the strange pair was greeted by quite a party, Castor having another stranger in tow. The place was abuzz with excitement with the new bounties.

"Hi everyone, we brought back some sweets." She called it to no one in particular, gesturing for Eileen to put down the boxes on the nearest table. People would go to it at their own pace. Biting down on her donut, she turned towards her new friend. "Eileen, do you want to see if we can work together on any of the bounties? I'm up for anything... probably"

Eileen did as gestured and dropped the boxes with care that seemed out of character for her. Food truly was no joke to the huntress. "Seselg, dear, we need not ask for the permissions. We sign up as group. Though I do not know if Sycdan will allow newfriend on five stars..." With a shrug, she finished her donut and wiped the crumbs off the top box and onto her hand, which then all popped in her mouth. Once her food was down, she gave Maria a wink and moved towards the bounty board. Stomping a foot on the nearest table, she let her voice boom through the hall. "Eileenoch da Siever will be taking the five star hunt!" She called out with no hesitation in her voice, letting it carry its way through the hall that would either silence in her presence... or go on ignoring it. "Any hunter brave enough to fight alongside me and take home big prize and meat, step forward! Cabanyda vun ic dra sela yht dra sah!" She passed a gaze over Maria, letting her know that this was her last chance to ditch. When it came to hunting, there was no fun in it for Eileen unless there was a challenge.

"Perfect....."

After a long excruciating hour of hitting the bag, She didn't really know what was going on, Of course, She got to her 30th bag, The punching bad projectiles doing more harm then good, Before a brave guild member decided to tell her off, But she still was clueless to what was occurring, Random people were just entering and exiting in a terrifying frenzy.

As for Aella, She of course wanted to kill the bear thing , But...She didn't know where to go, Sadly...She was really confused, "Ah....What to do?.." Aella mumbled, She, of course, Could tag along with a party, But she was a bit sore, Any large-scale mission would take quite the toll on her, So, Sadly, The Nandi bear dropped in priority, Defeated, Aella shuffled towards the board, And took a dejected glance.

The snake didn't seem half bad, If she could do it with a small party, She could collect more money then fighting the bear with 500 people, The wolf thing didn't seem out of her league either either, And the reward was okay at best, She could do it with one other person and snag 20,000 for herself.

As Aella was thinking to herself, Castor himself, and a girl entered the hall, Aella seemed to be a bit curious, Aella walked over to Castor and said"Hello Castor, Who is this?", Glancing at the silver haired girl, before shifting her attention back on Castor.

Castor sighed as he became immediately overwhelmed, which honestly wasn't a surprise to him. Sure, he had been eager to get back home to the guild, but he had only been back for ten minutes or so and he already wanted to leave again. Objects were flying around, people were being loud, Gerald(ine) was being a whiny and jealous tool, as per usual, and now he was being approached by another member and prodded with questions. He had had enough. He shook his head slowly at Aella as he shrugged and stared at her with a blank expression.

"She didn't tell me her name yet. Why don't you ask her yourself, I have to... do something. Anything. Away from here. Right now."

With that, he locked eyes with Josephine for a moment, trying his best to silently urge her to escape as he was about to, and then turned away to venture to his room. There he changed clothes, slipping into something that allowed him to more comfortably move around in at various speeds, and grabbing a small, collapsible buckler. As it was now, the buckler was a simple wooden rectangle, but it could be folded out with a quick flick of the wrist into an 18 in. diameter shield. His rapier was still hung at his waist.

His next stop was outside, or more specifically, Kayle's vehicle. Castor had been an Officer of the Blue Empire guild essentially as long as the guild had existed, and so he knew when members were just seeing dollar signs after looking at any specific bounty. Five star bounties shouldn't be taken lightly, they're dangerous, often incredibly so, and they're difficult. Even with groups of people. Hell, sometimes they were difficult even with Castor on board.

Seeing as he was the second to arrive at the vehicle after Kayle's little announcement, Castor approached the man himself and held out his hand in front of him, palm cupped and facing skyward, as if he was waiting for something to be handed to him. Something like a set of keys. Because he was the only one who actually knew where they needed to go, because like always, the members had gotten all worked up and decided to set out before getting any of the necessary information from either of their Officers.

"C'mon. Hand 'em over. You don't even know where you're going, or what a Nandi Bear is. Whoever else shows up won't know, either."

Castor would have to fill them in either as he drove or before they left.

Josephine eyed the girl, who's stature seemed to mimic her own. Maybe for once she had found a human being who was shorter than herself. She seemed nice enough, but friendliness was a trait that made Jo feel a tad bit uneasy. Maybe it was the fact that, she herself, was incapable of the gregarious attribute. She preferred blatancy over this polite crap, but seeing as this guild would soon be considered her new 'home', she worked up a humble smirk.

"Josephine Gwen." She reached out a hand, hoping to greet her company with a handshake, but faltered with she noticed the caked on dirt that covered her palm. It must have been from retrieving her bag. Now that she thought about it, a warm shower sounded decedent. It was late, and she hadn't even filled out her guild registration yet, so bounties were most definitely off limits anyways.

Considering he/she had been poking around orders upon their arrival, Josephine assumed that this lanky flamboyant.. person was someone of authority. She rotated her shoulders to look at them with pale blue lenses. "Where will I be staying?"

Geraldine scoffed as Castor so rudely sauntered away, without so much as a greeting. Then again, what was he to expect?

With a hefty sigh, Geraldine scratched at the nape of his neck, and took in the young innocent features of the new girl. He couldn't control the exasperation as he rolled his eyes. It seemed Castor had a newly developed 'thing' for picking up little girls.

Still, he was taken back by her seemingly demanding personality.

"Hold on, sweetheart." He crossed his arms, leaning in to meet the sassy young one at eye-level. "You aren't even an official guild member yet. Who's to say you're even qualified?"

Then again, Castor had yet to bring home one that wasn't.

"If you're so eager for a place to stay, then you'll be rooming with Aella here."

He mentally scoffed to himself. When exactly had this become a boarding house for midgets?

His jealous concerns were quickly scraped from his mind when he realized just how bare the bounty board had gotten. He needed his vices too, after all and his funds were draining like sand through an hourglass. Knowing Ajax, he'd require Geraldine to cater to the scrubs if he had nothing better to do.

Without another word, he left the two munchkins to converse among themselves and crept behind Emery with all the craftiness of a snake. From behind the chair, he tossed his frail arms around Emery's neck and nestled into his chestnut hair.

"Emery, take me with you." He whimpered, though he hadn't the slightest clue of which bounty Emery had reserved. He just didn't want to be left alone to tend to Ajax's dirty work. With the two of them, it should have been enough to take on any 3-star or lower.
