Rayburn Flynn

"Mom! I burned Dad again!"

0 · 277 views · located in Carnes High

a character in “Carnes High: Revival”, as played by ShadtheWerepire

Description

Rayburn Flynn


Image
(Blue eyes not gold)


Race: Phoenix

Classification: Protective older brother

Age: 10-11 he was adopted so exact age is unknown

Position: Middle School?

Relationships: Adopted son of Arabella and Jaimie Flynn and biological brother of Ashton

Characteristics and Traits:
Although he’s adopted his dark red hair makes him look like Jaimie and he is clearly related to Ashton by their cool blue eyes. You would only be able to argue that he’s not related to Arabella but his sister’s blond hair makes the connection more likely.

Powers:
As a phoenix he has a natural affinity with fire and generally has a burning aura surrounding him. Water is his weakness while fire adds to his strength, and surprisingly cold does not weaken him but it calms him and helps him stay relaxed. For his age he’s very skilled at bending fire to his will and generating it from his body. Flight comes easy to him as well, however he’s not very comfortable in his bird form though because of how much time he has spent as a human. Instead he can summon fire wings that work just as well as his bird wings.
As a Phoenix Rayburn and Ashton both are “immortal” whenever they die they are born again from the ashes in the form of eggs that hatch only when the time is right. They can stay in these eggs for centuries and tend to have little to no memory of their past lives when they hatch and regain them over time or at an old age. In Rayburn’s case his egg was damaged while he was reviving and when he woke up his past lives synchronized with him sooner than they should. His undeveloped mind could not understand them so it locked them back up deep in his memories but do to the strange make up of a mind leaks occur causing “episodes” where Rayburn experiences memories from his past or sometimes past lives will even come to the surface. The memories always seal themselves back into the recesses of his mind but when active things can get dangerous for both him and the people around him. The main demonstration of this is in his occasional night terrors that tend to involve sleep walking.

Personality:
He’s an over protective older brother with a big heart and a great appreciation for his adoptive parents, he knows he was adopted because he was old enough to remember them saving him and his sister. He also feels in dept to them so he behaves as well as he can.
However Rayburn is not a social bird (haha get it bird? Sorry it’s late at night X_X) He’s a bit of a shy guy if no one is talking to him. He’s talkative with his family but big social events like the reunion stress him out and make him feel uncomfortable or caged.

So begins...

Jaimie let Rayburn pull in front of him as they made it to Arabella and Ashton. Rayburn was ecstatic, sending a few stray sparks from his slightly fiery hair. The phoenix looped around Jaimie with his arms spread wide and a few cheers of victory before getting his hair ruffled and extinguished by his father. Rayburn gave his father a big toothy grin before stopping his victory lap.

"Guess you beat me! But keep the heat down buddy, we're not on school grounds yet." Jaimie chuckled and shook off the burning sensation off his hand from his son's flaming hair. He was used to getting burns and by now he knew how long he could put his hand in fire before injuring himself. "They used to be pretty strict about keeping human forms here but I'm sure you can let off some steam once we get inside. Just be careful okay?" Jaimie advised as Rayburn curiously looked over the crowd apparently not paying attention to his father. Jaimie sighed and turned to Arabella giving her a smirk and a shrug as if to say they'd just have to hope for the best.

He then turned to find his son looking over the crowd very intently. "Who did you find?" Jaimie crouched and followed Rayburn's trail of sight to see who the boy was looking at with a hint of recognition.

"Desmond and Kalen!" Jaimie smiled and waved back, "They even brought Arthur." He then turned his head a bit farther to the right to look around some more.

"Is that? No way! Aiden and Amber!" Jaimie felt like a high schooler again he waved to them just as eagerly as he waved to the Rulers. "And if I'm right they brought the pups too." he joked, "They're about Ash's age right?" he turned to Arabella.

Rayburn looked at his Dad unsure, he was saying a lot of names and he was having trouble putting a few of them to faces. His temperature fell as he started to grow more passive.

With a slight increase in pace the Rulers moved forward, Arthur still scanning the others who were approaching and waving to them; a group of four total adults and the same number of kids, at least one of which appeared his age, all seemingly pleasant. Course Arthur knew the Flynns, and their son Rayburn, fairly well. They were always coming over for dinner and such. Mom liked having Arabella drop by or going to the city and shopping together, and Dad was always interested in what Jamie had to say about the latest stories in the Human world… specifically things that were being seen as regular events but were really monsters behaving badly. But seeing the other group he had to think back a little ways to when they had last stopped by. According to Dad they kept a ‘low profile’ which was pretty common in the monster world. But as he looked at the various people from his dad’s stories of the old days a thought occurred to him, “Dad?”

“Hmm?”

“These guys were the people from all your stories about those fights in high school right?”

“That’s right.”

“So who’s the strongest?”

Desmond nearly tripped at that question, “Well, uh, son, that’s a difficult question to place. I mean it wasn’t really a competition we were in.” a diplomatic answer as Kalen chuckled to herself about the sudden outburst her boy had made. It was just like Arthur, always assessing, always curious, always decisive, and Desmond really shouldn’t have been caught off guard there.

“But aren’t you the strongest there is?” he asked again as he looked to the rather large man to the left of them (Aiden) and his wife with a slightly cocked head.

Before Desmond could tell his son a flat nope his loving wife intervened, “Why don’t you judge for yourself?”

Taking her at her word Arthur nodded and moved to the head of the trio as he reached into his collar and withdrew the necklace that hid beneath his shirt. The pendant was warm to the touch despite its steely construction, pulsing with a light beat in harmony with that of his own heart. A brilliantly intricate piece of jewelry. He grasp the pendant and closed his eyes for a moment, his Parents stopping behind him.

“Don’t overdo it now, Arthur.” His pops advised as he stood slightly back with Kalen, watching.

“I won’t.” he assured as he drew form the pendant a small droplet of power. His feet felt lighter as a small circle of air escaped from him, his sports coat blown back slightly as his bangs rose in the air a fraction of an inch. The wind however was minimal and died down after a single burst as his full weight returned to his feet. Opening his eyes he looked about again. A sparkle now rested within those deep green orbs, and with that small drop of power he viewed the world anew.

Looking about he saw each figure as little more than a silhouette, however the surrounding air that was typically boring in the normal spectrum, was on fire in every color of the rainbow. Glancing about he was astounded by what he saw, the kids had some huge aura’s of their own but those two monsters, Arabella and Aiden… they were a whole different thing all together. Heck, the two humans were extraordinary in their own right, each with an Aura as four times larger than any human he knew. By contrast when he looked over his shoulder his mom, Kalen, had no aura what so ever save a slight glowing trail emanating form where her eyes would be. And Desmond’s aura was barely larger than a human’s right now. Guess he’s keeping a low profile too…

He closed his eyes again as he stowed the pendant back in his shirt and began moving again with his parents. “So, what do you think? Have an answer yet?” his mom asked.

“No…” he commented back, “give me a hint?”

“No way, Sport, I’m having too much fun with this.” Desmond chuckled.

Kalen elbowed him lightly, though her strength almost pushed him over as they walked forward, at last meeting at the gate with the other couples. Having come from three directions the three families met simultaneously at the entrance to the school.

“Hello there strangers, I don’t suppose you’re here for the reunion party too?” Desmond said jovially as he and Kalen moved forward for the greetings. Desmond shaking Jamie’s and Aiden’s hands and Kalen pulling Amber and Arabella into a hug, whether or not they wanted it. Arthur, meanwhile, walked straight up to Rayburn.

“Sup, Blaze, how you been?” he asked as he presented his fist calmly in a more youthful greeting. Desmond always said name your children whatever you like, and their friends will call them whatever they want. Rayburn and Arthur knew one another well enough, but didn’t go to the same school. Perhaps a good thing since the young phoenix might torch the place on a whim. Lord knows Arthur had to fight that urge without magical powers. “School out for you too?”

“yeah, school’s out so things have been more fun.” Rayburn smirked at Arthur’s nickname for him and gave him a bro fist in return. He felt a tugging on his shirt from behind him as Ashton held onto him with her steel grip. “huh?” he slowly turned to her and began to peel off her fingers

“Ashton, it’s Arthur, remember? The human prince?” He chuckled remembering one of the imaginary games the three of them tried to play. The phoenix’s powers made the games more interesting as save the princess from the fireballs turns into save the prince because the princess doesn’t burn.

"Come on, we're not kids anymore..." Arthur griped quietly as he kicked a bit of dust. Looking for a perfect opening however as he feigned attitude he smirked and sprung, his right hand flying up as he flicked the phoenix on the tip of his nose with a devious grin. "Well, Maybe not too grown up, eh, Hot-head?"

“Not fair!” Rayburn laughed as he rubbed his nose. “I’ll show you hot-head!” he smiled and flames licked his hair again as he dove at the human to tackle him to the ground, all in good fun of course.

Tackled to the ground by the flaming headed boy Arthur grunted as he hit the floor but never let his smile fade, "Oh yeah! Take this!" and with that pushed up with his knee to try and roll them over, hopping to get himself on top and in control of the wrestling match.

Desmond chuckled as he looked on at the two young boys being... well... boys. Kalen however was shaking her head and rubbing the bridge of her nose, "They'll get their clothes all dirty... or worse burned off!"

Arthur easily over powered Rayburn as he was older and bigger making it tough for the phoenix to win the upper hand. He had the air knocked out of him as Arthur pinned him. “Not fair! You’re bigger!” Rayburn whined he didn’t dare use fire to fight back because he knew he wasn’t supposed to and his parents were right there.

Just a few feet from the entrance to Carnes-High, an explosion of thick, black smoke disturbed the mountain air. Once it partly cleared, four figures were revealed, a man and woman and a boy and a girl who shared a chilling similarity. One of the man's hands instantly drifted towards the woman protectively as they began to walk.

Lin swept Freezer's hand away like a cobweb. "Stop! I'm fine, honestly" she snapped irritably at him before giving her high-school sweetheart a softer approach. "It's not like I'm inexperienced" she murmured gesturing towards the two children in front of them.

Freezer observed his wife with a small smile, she was wearing a deep blue Maxi-dress, with her miles of thick wavy hair left tumbling down her back. It made her look like a Greek deity. Freezer sighed and held his hands up in defeat. It wasn't her delicate looking body that made him fuss so much, it was the bulging pregnancy bump that expanded out from beneath the dress that concerned him.

Their two children huffed and sighed as the couple realised they'd stopped the group from walking any further. "Come on, at this rate we'll miss the reunion" Lin added giving the children and Freezer a push forwards. Freezer gave a scowl and linked an arm around her waist. "Didn't even want to come. Not when you're like this." he muttered under his breath. 'there are people here who would see to you having a stillborn' He thought the last part, but didn't say it, knowing it would only leave him getting beaten by a heavily pregnant woman.

Elle, one of their children, marched ahead confidently whilst giving her surroundings wide, curious eyes. She had heard stories about this place, about the people in it and now she was here it was difficult to believe her parents actually went to school. That the people in the stories were real.
"Elle not too far ahead!" Lin moaned, knowing the angelic 'looking' little girl would cause nothing but devilish trouble when out of sight.

Falcon on the other hand, their son and Elle's twin, clung to her hand like leech. She smiled down at his gorgeous face as Freezer scowled down at him. "Falcon don't cling to your mother like that, you'll trip her up!"

"I'm helping her walk" Falcon retorted.

Closing in on the school gates, Lin and Freezer actually paid attention to their surroundings and found that they needn't look far for the people they once knew at school. Pretty much all the them stood in a small group just inside the school gates, with children too!!
Lin gave the group a wicked smile and glanced up at Freezer, who couldn't help but give a charming smile, knowing full well he'd missed the sight of the people they used to mess around with. The only problem they faced was how everyone would remember them...

Lin decided to select the most closest individual to her kind. "Well, well if it isn't Arabella..."

Jaimie squeezed Arabella's hand as Lin greeted her, he recognized the two witches instantly and had to stop himself from staring daggers at them. He looked at Freezer briefly with hate, he still didn't take the resort trip they all took in school lightly, the warlock had gone crazy and Jaimie considered him one of the more dangerous monsters in the area. Forgetting that people still may have grudges against him, Jaimie didn't dig out his old enchanted dagger and bow for the occasion and began to feel unsafe without them.

Arabella handled Lin well, but he would just have to hope the pregnant Lin wouldn't take it the wrong way. She seemed to have the situation under control so he let his hand slip out of hers as he turned his attention to the fighting boys. Regardless of the walking burn kit that was his wife, Kalen was right, the boys' game could heat up at any time.

"Boys, can you play tag with the others or something, well, safer?" Jaimie suggested lightly with a smile.

"Why?" Rayburn whined. "We're having fun! No one is going to get hurt! He can't hurt me and I'm not going to burn him." Rayburn argued while shoving some more to try to get Arthur off of him.

Lin grinned at Arabella whilst placing a soft hand on top of her son's head. She eyed all the children present and tried to figure out which ones belonged to the white witch if any but none of the children struck her immediately.

Aiden was next to speak to her, he obviously bore bad memories between them as he stiffened up at the sight of her and her family. Lin lifted her chin up in a defensive manner and brought her children closer, Elle was standing far too close to him. She remembered how unpredictable the werewolf had been at school, she'd seen him at the coven and she wouldn't entrust him with her worst enemy let alone her family.
She smiled at him all the same, the polite smile she used for the husbands of important women, the same husbands that stared at her for longer then they should.
"Haven't you noticed I'm pregnant Aiden, even I need time off eventually. Besides I wanted to revisit the school, we wish to send our children here when they come of age" she replied giving her twins a quick glance.

Freezer on the other hand had acknowledged Aiden's nod and had nodded back to be polite, but he didn't like the vibe he was getting off of some members of the group. He moved forwards slightly, ready to fend off anyone who felt like taking a stab at Lin, especially Aiden who had noticeably reached for a knife.

"We were hesitant to come, after all Lin is so fragile right now, we didn't want to run into any trouble, but mothers will be mothers. They never know when to rest." Freezer exclaimed with a warm smile his eyes on anyone who looked unhappy about their arrival. He wanted to make it clear that Lin was just a heavily pregnant mum, not the devil coming to snatch up their children for supper.





Elle shrugged away from her mothers hold and eyed the children and adults present. They were a weird looking bunch, especially the kids with wings. She almost glared at them all with her sharp, golden eyes before deciding she would play with some of the girls. "May I go and play?" she asked silkily, a playful smile preying upon her lips.

Falcon clutched his mother's maxi dress in the balls of his hands when Elle asked to go play. There were a lot of strangers and some of the children looked weird.





Freezer glanced between the kids, the other parents and Lin. He wasn't sure that was a good idea. "I don't know if that's a good idea baby" he murmured to Elle. Lin frowned at him, she seemed indecisive. She looked at the others.

"Are your children strong?"
she asked hesitantly, checking whether they'd be able to withstand an accidental slap or poke from her children without breaking in half.

"Fine! Uncle uncle!" Rayburn finally choked out as Arthur trapped him in a head lock, he guessed the game was over as his only chance of getting out of the headlock was well timed fire which, honestly, he was too lazy to deal with because of the repercussions. He was released suddenly and rubbed his neck. But he laughed it off and didn't seem disheartened by the surrender at all.

The two witches approached and Rayburn looked a bit like a deer in the headlights. The flames that tickled his dark red hair vanished as his nerves kicked in. He wasn't the most out-going of people, with Arthur it was different, because Arthur was, well Arthur, he didn't know who these kids were. There was a hint of distrust too, Rayburn wasn't stupid, he saw through some of the holes in his parents stories, he knew his father was a human and there would have been monsters that threatened him. Since he hadn't met these kids before it was only safe to assume they might not be as human friendly as himself.

As the boy, Falcon, spoke Rayburn relaxed, the stutter made him seem less threatening. With the initial fight or flight symptoms gone Rayburn smiled at the pair.

"I'm Rayburn, and Yeah I've heard a few stories about this place, my Mom and Dad met here and hopefully I'll go here one day." He responded with some enthusiasm. There was no danger in talking to these two.

Freezer laughed openly at Desmond when he saddled up beside him. "I can't say the journey was smooth, what with Lin's morning sickness and the children squabbling, as for letting them drive the teleportation...well I can't say we'd get very far with one wanting to go forwards and the other wanting to go back. That's twins for you."

On the other hand Lin was talking to Kalen and her eyes widened slightly when the human gave her a mixed handshake and light hug. She smiled anyway, her pregnancy bump getting in the way. "Yes I imagine we will be coming this winter as long as nothing at the council occurs. The improvements you've made only make it more inviting." She looked over at her children's to check they were playing nice. Her lips thinned at Falcon's stutter.




Falcon thought for a moment that the others weren't going to talk to him, they seemed panicked and one walked away but the flame haired boy seemed to relax after a minute. His parents met a the school too and he'd be going to Carnes too.
Falcon grinned impishly. "Y-yeah? Me and Elle too!" He exclaimed. "D-dad said wer-were gonna rock the s-school just like him and mum did. I-I bet our p-parent were friends."

Elle rolled her eyes at her brother. She couldn't imagine any of these old foegies being friends with her parents, without any display of their power she felt like all the excitement and build up had been for nothing.




Desmond gestured to his boy and said they should judge his sons strength for themselves. Freezer stopped and observed as Desmond shot a rather large amount of raw power at his own son. At first freezer gripped his hands together anxiously. Desmond's power wasn't anything to laugh about if you were too weak to defend yourself or understand it. He worried for the young boy, but it seemed the lad had a few tricks up his own sleeve and defended himself marvellously.

Freezer clapped Arthur gladly. "Well I think that was quite a show. I'm ashamed I didn't think of you training him up sooner Desmond." He gave the hircule a slap on the back and nodded at Kalen. "I wouldn't mind a sword like that myself. Where on earth did you get that." Freezer said that more to himself.

Desmond asked for them to pass their judgement. Freezer shrugged with a charming smile. "What can I say, the boy can hold his own. You must be proud, and quite out of pocket!"

Lin on the other hand smiled less sincerely. With a hand rubbing her bump she eyed the young human thoughtfully as he approached her son and daughter with confidence. "Well at least he'll be able to defend against magical attacks. How's his stamina? He can take more than one hit right?" Lin added to her husbands enthused reply.

Freezer hurried to Kalen and Lin's side where he placed a hand on her shoulder. "Well he's a young boy. I'm sure if he sparred with the children he'd get better, I'm sure Desmond has trained him to handle more than one hit, and that was a decent hit we just saw. I'm sure we can relax. We're all monsters here...mostly."




Elle and Falcon watched the display. It left Elle with her eyes as wide as saucers. Her cat eyes grew large and fascinated. That man could of been a friend of her parents. Her eyes turned to his son who had managed the attack. She immediately saw a good opponent that would be worth fighting. Falcon saw the twinkle in his sisters eyes and eyed the boy who walked back towards them. Great. Now she was interested.

Elle thrusted her hand towards the human like her father did to worthy individuals. "Elle Mackrell. I'd sure like to fight you..." She paused waiting for his name.

Rayburn smiled as his sister took interest in showing off too after his friend's display of power. However, he was too relaxed to react fast enough when the fire shot out of her hands. His fear quickly subsided as their Mom cleared things up before they had a forest fire on their hands. Ash didn't take it too well though, she buried her face in his shirt and he began to stoke her hair for comfort.

"It's okay Ash, you didn't do anything wrong." Rayburn tried to say when one of the other moms came over. Rayburn looked at her with wide eyes before she too pulled fire out and tried to teach Ash. He crinkled his nose at her weird fire.

"She can't burn her eyebrows off she's a phoenix." Rayburn corrected like a smart ass and then generated his own fire sword with the twist of his wrist. "Phoenix fire is pure and has one size, you can't make it bigger or smaller, fire can only be lost or gained. Ash just has too much of it that's all, she's still too little to contain it." Rayburn's fire sword molded into a coating of fire on his arm and then vanished as it sunk back into his skin. He wasn't trying to be rude, a long time ago he had to explain this to his Mom and Dad too.

Desmond couldn’t help but overhear Freezers comment on the sword as he watched the young boy return to his group of friends and he huffed a bit, “You and me both, but that blade is one of a kind, and unfortunately I doubt it would let either of us so much as hold it now… it’s found its owner.” He commented much as Freezer had – that is to say more to himself than anyone else. Aiden's comment, however, brought bout a more direct response, "Last thing that kid needs is more artifacts for him to cause trouble with..."

“Ahem, anyway,” Kalen coughed and returned her attentions to Lin, “You are practically glowing! When’s the newest addition due to make an appearance?” she began the pleasantries again when a nearby tree burst into flames, not that she was very surprised, “Woah! Light show.” She commented before returning to the pregnant witch.

Desmond also drew his eyes away from those with whom he was conversing and noting the tree bursting into flames, “Hello! That’s the good ol’ days.” Looking to Shad however he shrugged, “Well, we never really burned the place, just smashed up a courtyard… or three… and we certainly never destroyed an entire spa.” He added the last bit to Freezer but with a more playful note, not really pointing blame but more just reminiscing.

Arthur, meanwhile had returned to the group of children and Ashton torched a nearby tree trying to impress him. He laughed lightly and knelt as she buried her face with embarrassment in Rayburn’s shirt. Reaching out he patted her head, “Wow, Ash, you really got some fire in ya’ eh?” the tween chuckled as he smiled to the young and impressionable girl before standing and stepping back, letting Mrs. Knight talk to the young Phoenixes, and turning to Falcon whom he’d brushed aside, “Sorry about that, that was really rude of me… I’m Arthur Ruler!” he said with a smile presenting his hand to the young boy. The kids were getting along fine it seemed, at least all over the place, the two were children had met the vampire kitsune kids and lived to tell about it and Rayburn had lost to Arthur… again… so it was all going rather well, or seemed to be. The Gargoyle that watched on from afar, it’s head just barely tilted out of place form the perch it had occupied for decades upon the room turned it’s gaze away from the gateway, returning it forward to its original position.

But Desmond had not gone without noticing such creatures and as he caught the slight movement from the corner of his eye he looked back to the two before him with a more business like face. He’d taken notice of Aiden and Amber’s children earlier with a smile on his face but it was one held in spite of truth, the truth that they were much like his son in that they were some of the top priority targets of the Isolationist movement. And it was for them and others that this extra security was being activated. Freezer, Shad, and Desmond were all in a small grouping of their own, the others having gone about other conversations or actions just slightly away and so he spoke more candidly, “So much for a quiet reunion, eh? Here stand some of the most powerful monsters in the entire world… and still I wouldn’t be surprised if at any second the Isolationists came storming this place, trying to catch us off guard.”

As if on cue, such a commotion burst into life at that moment, though admittedly with a great deal less evil intentions that what Desmond had suggested, “Greeting, Alumni!” a familiar voice boomed form the school side of the courtyard as a good looking man, with blonde hair, and a name plate stating he was the Assistant Principal stepped out toward the groups, “It’s been too long!” Jacob called with his arms outstretched in welcome.
