0 · 203 views · located in Elenia

a character in “Elenia: Dark Age”, as played by Magix

Description

Appearance:

Image

^ For More Formal Occasions, or just in a mood to get dressed up

Image

^ More her basic kind of clothing. Easy to move in is a necessity, as it's what she wears into battle as well.

Name:

Scarlet Zaion

Age:

18

Gender:

Female

Race:

Pyrian

Power:

The ability to wield Fire Magic of the highest caliber
Her abilities with it are limited to her imagination and what her body can handle

Skills:

Always has been somewhat skilled with Fire Magic, but mastering the Gem's power is still a tall order.

Weapon:

She employs a dual claw technique. Designed to maximize damage done with armor piercing blades at a lighter weight then many other weapons, allow for quicker reaction speed, but at the cost of any ranged fighting.

Image

She also carries twin daggers hidden on her person. These usually are just used when she isn't carrying her claws, or needs a quick weapon. Where these are hidden usually differ.

Image

Personality:

She's very happy and outgoing, despite the times they live in. She much prefers to joke around as opposed to being so serious all the time, although it's not like she can't be serious when needed. She's attracted towards other women much more then men, and will often try to make a playful, yet serious pass at someone she likes, unless she just wants to make someone uncomfortable. Her joking around around and her making a serious play at someone are pretty obvious differences however.

Bio:

Always raised in a wealthy but strict household, she grew up resenting it. She would steal for the adrenaline rush, and broke every rule that she could almost any time possible. Her parents always getting her off of course. At 16 she got fed up with it all and tried to run away. However after just a few days she was apprehended and brought back. Every now and then she'll try it again and again, but to no avail. Maybe one of these days she'll actually get out.

The Zaion clan. One of the youngest clans across the entire continent of Elenia. Of course, that's in the history books alone. Outside of Pyranous, the Pyrian Kingdom, the clans is hardly know, just as most other clans are unknown to the other parts of the world. They are a noble clan known for it's strict practices, and upbringing. However, even with the most strict structure, there will always be those born into the family that can't stand it.

Scarlet Zaion, the daughter of the heads of the Clan and the sole heir to the leadership position, was one of those people. Multiple attempts to run away over the past few years had landed her in trouble but it was still better then if she had been anyone else. Any other member of the clan would've been beaten for their insolence, but her parents covered it up as if nothing had happened. Not the best way for them to teach proper behavior, but it was if they acted like it never happened, it never did.

After a few years, this had become an occurrence every few months. Scarlet would run away, be gone from 2-9 days and then be found and dragged back. Going without so much as a scolding. However, it wasn't that she was just randomly running away. She had suffered a cruel incident that upsets her quite often when she's home. She just wants to run away and finally be rid of it all.

It was that time again for Scarlet. She was running away once more, hoping this time she'd be able to stay away from her family. Although, little did she know she'd bite off more then she could chew by doing so. She'd left in the dead of night, something she didn't usually do. This bought her quite a few hours before they'd find her. That was 5 days ago.

Scarlet had ventured further out then she ever had before, finding a small cave to take residence in for the night. She had started a fire as always, and cooked up a small animal that found it's way into her camp earlier that day. After all that was taken care of she wandered out of the cave to find the nearest water source. She already had found it, so it wasn't exactly hard to find again.

After collect what water she needed to get her through the next two days, she bathed herself. After all, just because she was living in the woods for now, didn't mean she had to be dirty. This was just until she could get far away enough to visit some towns anyway. She brought a small fortune with her just for the occasion.

This night however, may have started off normal, but it wasn't going to end that easy. A bear, attracted to the lingering smells of the food she had eaten just a few hours ago shad attracted it. Without the small animal though, the only other option on the menu was Scarlet.

Once back at her camp she started to pack everything up for a quick getaway the following morning. That's when she spotted the hungry creature, just ready to dive into his next meal. She nearly screamed, but her voice suddenly went missing. Instead she just grasped the bag she had in her hand, and raced further into the cave. Tossing a few fireballs behind her (pretty much the only Fire spell she knew) to try and throw off the Bear, she kept running. No idea where this cave led to. She'd find out after a few more minutes of running though.

Eventually she came up to it. The dead end of the cave. No way out except the way she just came, and that was guarded by a hungry bear, that's now also pissed off because of the fireworks display. As the beast moved closer, teeth showing and snarling at her, it was ready to strike at any moment. Scarlet's back was up against the wall. The Fireballs barely did a thing to it. She reached down and removed one of the two daggers she had strapped to her inner thighs today. She wasn't going to die without a fight, although part if her hoped that if she kept pushing on the wall behind her, it would somehow find a way to move. As the bear roared, Scarlet almost jumped out of her skin, and just as it rushed at her, she had disappeared.

Scarlet woke up on the floor of some new cave. It was much darker then the last, and she was alone. Completely alone, just her and her bag. A lone voice rung out in her head, one she'd never heard before in her life.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. In all races, and from every kingdom. You will be put through a trial, and only by passing said trial can you hope to save yourself and this world. Complete your task, but beware. Things may not always be what they seem. Pass and you will join your future comrades, fail and the cave will claim you as it's own forever.

After the voice rang out Scarlet was blinded by a wicked light. As it cleared Scarlet found herself somewhere new. The atmosphere was dense with a magical force. It was a fact that would be clear to any creature, ones who know magic or not. She stood on a beach. Endless sand in one direction, the ocean in the other. The question was where was she exactly? What had she gotten herself into now? That was something she just didn't know, and by the looks of things, she may not want to know.

Silence filled the area. Not only was it eerie already, but how could a beach surrounded by the rushing waves, produce no sound at all? What was this place? Where was she? Scarlet just didn't know, and had no means of figuring it out. She started walking down the beach but the view never changed. This beach, and the ocean seemed endless. Maybe if she swam out far enough she could find an exit? No she'd rather just die on the beach. The water scared her terribly. She didn't know how to get out of here sure, but swimming definitely wasn't an option. She wasn't a strong swimmer anyway, so logically it just made sense.

She began walking for God knows how long it really was. It felt like hours on end, just walking the beach to no avail. There wasn't even a scenery change. That's when finally she heard it. A small crying voice began to echo out throughout the area. At this point any sound was a welcomed sound, although Scarlet had wondered where the voice was coming from.

After a few moments of looking around with the voice getting louder, she spotted the culprit. Out in the water there was a small object, resembling the top of a bassinet. Inside of it was a crying baby. She both wondered how the baby had gotten there and why, but the sound of the water cutting apart ended those thoughts rather quickly. She hadn't heard a sound from the water yet, but now all of a sudden she could somewhat. It wasn't the regular water flowing sounds though, this was more like something traveling through it. Sure enough, there was a boat not too far off. The problem was, it was on a collision course with the baby.

The thought of trying to save herself by getting the boat's attention never even crossed her mind. Instinctively she dove into the water, letting her fears take a back seat to everything. She swam her heart out to get to the baby before the boat did, and after a few moments she was narrowly successful. If she hesitated for one more moment, the baby would have been crushed, likely along with her as well. She carefully swam with the baby back to shore with her heart beating so fast she could have sworn all of Elenia heard it.

Back on shore now, she removed the baby from the bassinet and held him in her arms. Swimming with him wasn't an option, walking seemed to be the only way. She stared walking down the shore again with the baby in her arms, hoping to see another boat. Sure it wasn't the best plan, but it was better then sitting there ready to die. They walked and walked, all the while the baby stayed silent just staring at her and smiling every so often. Scar would smile back trying to be comforting, but she was getting nervous. She didn't want to die in a place like this and she didn't want to let this baby just die too.

Sounds of water rushing filled the area. Scar's head instantly turned to the ocean just to see the water receding. Was it a Godsend? Would the two of them be saved? A moment later she'd see it was pretty much the opposite. Sure the water began to recede but it was only because of the tidal wave off in the distance. The Tidal wave moving in fast. Scarlet turned around, ready to run up the beach in hopes of escaping, but as she did was met with utter horror.

The beach, the very ground itself was falling away. It left her on nothing but the endless strip of land she was walking. A giant tidal wave coming from one side, a seemingly bottomless pit on the other. She didn't know what to do so she would just have to stand up for herself and take this head on. "Don't worry, I'll get us through this." She said facing the tidal wave and digging her feet into the sand. She looked down at the baby once more with one last smile. "You know, your the nicest guy I ever met."

As the wave neared the baby began to glow a white light. Once it disappeared she was still in the same situation, only the baby had turned into the bag she was carrying. "What the...." That was all she said before the wave crashed over her and knocked her back into the hole. Falling.... Almost endlessly falling... That's what it seemed like as the darkness covered her.

Once all hope seemed to be lost she found herself falling to the ground in some new cavern. She fell back first slamming into the cave floor, her bag landing next to her. She slowly opened her eyes, as she heard voices. Other people? Did she somehow make it out of these Godforsaken caves? No, she didn't. Although now she seemed trapped somewhere new with some other people. She reached over and picked up her bag, noticing she wasn't wet from the water at all. It was quite odd, but she didn't have time to wonder about it. She needed to know if the baby was still around. She didn't want to accept it as an illusion, not that the thought it could be even crossed her mind.

She struggled to her feet, her back now hurting from the landing. She walked towards the others, not caring who they were. The seemed to be in the same situation and that's all that mattered. "Did any of you see a baby around here? He was with me not too long ago... At least I don't think it was too long ago.... I must've dropped him..." She said solemnly, realize if the baby dies, it's her fault. She would have failed him, even though in reality he never existed.

Scarlet sighed a bit as the Sorian came over. It was a bit of relief that someone seemed willing to help, but it was a bit of disappointment in his question as well. What happened before the baby went missing? Well that was just it. How could she possibly explain what had happened, without seeming completely insane? In the end, she just figured just fuck it, she probably already sounded insane anyway. "Okay, well.... There was this beach... and this wave... The Wave got big, then as it came in the beach disappeared... The wave pushed me in and then I ended up here without the baby. I know it sounds crazy, but that's what happened. If the baby is dead, it's my fault. He wanted me to save him, and he was my responsibility, ya know?... Have you seen him anywhere?" Deep down she knew he probably wasnt’t real. She wasn’t so naive to not see through an illusion, but it wasn’t in her to just give it up so easily.

----------

Zet stood still trying to eavesdrop and gather what little info he could. It seemed that the group wasn’t exactly the most talkative bunch. Some chick looking for a baby, that probably wan’t even hers. In fact that was quite obvious for anyone that really noticed her reaction. A mother, especially a young one, would be completely panicked if their child was missing. This girl, seemed concerned, but not worried as a Mother would be. There was an Aquarian girl that seemed to be the weakest in the room, the girl looking for the baby coming in a close second to her. There were quite a few that looked to be more suited for battle, but bringing them together with weaker people didn’t seem to make much sense. Why were they all here? Well unless someone tried to figure this out, they’d possibly never actually make it out.

Zet had too many things he wanted to do with his life then suffer a pathetic death here. He walked forward, and sent Ruby to search the rest of the cave with just a glance and head movement. Turning around he could see the whole group at once. He decided if no one else would actually break the silence to figure out why they were here, he would. They all had to be wondering it, no? He cleared his throat before speaking. “I am Zetisuke, or Zet for short. I have no idea yet why we’re here, but I intend to figure it out. I will not die here. Does anyone else wish to introduce themselves before we move on?” There probably wasn’t any time to waste with beating around the bush. Best to just be straightforward before the magic air disappeared.

----------

Jet sat down against a nearby wall with his sword in his lap, and didn’t move until things started to pick up again. Even then, it was only what seemed for him to be stretching his neck. After Zet spoke he just laughed a bit. “Oi, ye don’t be fuckin’ puillin’ any punches when ye wanna know something, do ya boyo? I like that about ye, so don’t be gettin’ offended.”

Before Jet had the chance to even say anymore his ears were met with a low growling noise. Shifting in the cave structure? No that wasn't even close to this sound. This was an animal like sound almost. Either they weren't the only ones in that cave, or someone was quite hungry. Jet was inclined to believe the former first. His eyes slowly looked around the cave until they spotted a strange glowing shine from one of the shadows. When the light (that was unexplained on how it was even there in the first place, having no seeming oxygen flow to keep the flames lit or any of them breathing for that matter) hit something just right it gave off this glow. To be more precise, it was 2 small somethings. When he looked at them, they seemed to move a bit, disappearing and reappearing with the movements in and out of the light. Finally they started to move closer. Jet readied himself to face the oncoming creature for whatever it may be, without making movement to alarm the whole cave.

As the creature started to become noticeable, Jet had dropped his guard against it and instead started to laugh a bit. He should have recognized those eyes anywhere. "Oi Shadowmere, I see they brought you 'ere too." Said Jet as the panther came from the darkness and rubbed up against Jet's leg as if it were a common house cat. Jet pet it on it's head, clearly the two knew each other, and it sat down next to him.

Jet then turned his attention back to the ballsy Zet. He wore the colors of a well known Noble Lethlian clan. The Krovi clan was famous, or perhaps infamous was the better term. He wasn’t sure if the other races even knew about them though. “Sorry ‘bout that. Me name is Jet. If we be dyin’ ‘ere so be it.” That being said he took a flask out of his pocket, opening it and taking a swig from it. “I just hope we die while I’m locked.”

Scarlet listened to what the Sorian was saying, but it wasn’t anything she didn’t already expect. Still, she had to at least confirm it, right? What if by the off chance the baby was the only real thing? She couldn’t abandon it. Not without a thorough search at least. “I... I know that already. I figured he isn’t real, but there’s still a chance he could have been. I just can’t abandon a defenseless baby without searching, ya know?” As he seemed to snap and extend his hand though, she cringed in a defensive stance for a moment, thinking he was going to strike her for some reason. Embarrassed when she realized he was just introducing himself to her she just smiled a little and shook his hand. “Scarlet Zaion, umm... normal girl. It’s nice to meet you, and I thank you for your help.”


----------

Jet took another swig from the flask as the young aquarian girl came over to him. She couldn’t be more then 15 or 16 years old by the way her face looked and her general demeanor. Of course she was a pretty little thing especially for her age, but Jet could still tell she was rather young. In fact, she looked to be the youngest there among the group. As she began rambling off her questions Jet looked at her for a moment, thinking on how he should answer. He could be funny, and mess with her, though if they were to die in here that would just be terribly mean. In the end he just decided to go straight forward and answer her questions.

“Oi, Shadowmere here is a Black Panther. It be a species only found in Yarevon if memory serves me well enough. Even here though, it’s a rare breed, even rarer to be findin’ any as tamed as Shadowmere. Wouldn’t wanna be pet’in’ one out in the wild. As far as her bitin’, well you’re safe as long as ye don’t piss ‘er off or make ‘er feel threatened. O’course she be pretty protective of me as well. Anythin’ else ye be wantin’ to know Lass?”

Zet stood in the ruins of an old temple. After looking the place over for just a few moments, he knew exactly where they were. He hadn’t come out this far often, but there was one instance in which he had come out this far, and he recollected the area well. This wasn’t one area anyone forgot about easily. Zet walked over to a piece of higher ground, where he could oversee everyone there. That meant they could hear him just as well. They may have pretty much ignored him earlier, but he chalked the rudeness up to the confusing situation there. Now that they knew what was going on.... well, kinda knew.... he expected they’d listen. Well most of them. Well, at least half of them half listening.

Zet cracked his back a bit and stood tall. At least as tall as he could. "Listen up everyone." He said with a loud almost commanding voice. He actually didn’t know if anyone would have a problem with him, but other then maybe the Light host, seeing as he wasn’t sure the extent of the light host’s knowledge of the area, he knew the most about where they were. It was his responsibility as a guardian to protect them all now, and he intended to do as much at the cost of his life if the need arose. "We can't afford to be wandering around at night in these woods. There's a town we can make in a few hours. If we move now, we can get there before nightfall. You don't wanna be caught moving in any of these woods at night if it's unavoidable. Any Lethlian worth their salt knows that."

Zet stepped down from the high ground, as Ruby landed on his shoulder. Well now all that was left to see how they replied. Hopefully, things would go smoothly, though with this ragtag bunch, who knew really.

----------


Scarlet was completely offended by the ass hole of a gem host that she had as her guide. Although she had little time to voice her complaints, she had plenty of them. She wasn’t a weak little girl. She had a good mind to kick that ghost’s ass.... if one could kick a Ghost’s ass..... Who was she kidding, he was probably right. She didn’t have extensive training like some of the others clearly did. Soon enough though, they were move once more. God did she hope that they’d stop teleporting them all randomly. It was annoying and making her feel sick.

After standing for a moment, she realized something. This wasn’t just the teleporting that was making her feel sick. She really did feel like shit all of a sudden. Her body became sort of heavy, she was terribly dizzy, and she tried her best to keep from losing all she had eaten.... ever. What kind of magic was this? To be fine one minute, and the next feel like you’re on death’s door and have been for a while. How could she possibly save anyone like this?

In actuality, Scarlet was just spiking a fever that was rapidly increasing to near borderline death for most, and the other symptoms were just as a result of it. Hard to think about any of that when you can barely stand though. She stood still, trying to take in everything that happened, that was going on, and all that, but it was tough. Maybe she was dreaming? Maybe she was dead. Maybe she just lost her damn mind. Yeah, the latter was probably the most likely thing. She was just nuts, and would probably die alone, because she was so bonkers. Could be worse though. How she didn’t know, but damn it could be worse.

Sitting down, thanks to gravity, she closed her eyes. if she really focused and tried to tell herself she was okay, it could dull the symptoms enough for her to at least concentrate on her fucked up world insider her now insane mind. if she was gonna die, well at least she’d wanna know how, and why.


----------


Jet didn’t say much the whole time. Of course he accepted the gem and the responsibility. Although to be fair, he was partially drunk and not even sure if that was real. Once outside they all kind of began to regain their sense of what was going on, though Jet was kind of at a disadvantage for that. When he looked around he didn’t see with his typical sight. Bright spots were like staring into the sun while wearing night vision goggles. Dark spots were a darker black then he had known to exist. In the moderately lit areas he could kind of make out shapes, but with depth perception completely off. He ended up slamming his eyes shut.

Shadowmere rubbed against his leg, so he leaned on her and pet her head. “Oi Shadowmere, bring me to tha nearest person ye find.” Maybe someone there could help shed some light on his problem. At this point the only vision he had that wasn’t painful, was complete darkness.


----------


Monroe sat on the ground, meditating through most of that entire ordeal. Yes he accepted his fate, and yes he would fight to his full extent. However, there wasn’t a need to give up his beliefs either. He would fight, he would win, and he would keep his inner peace, while hopefully bringing peace to the outer world as well. When he was through meditating, he went to stand up. That’s when he realized it, his feet and arms felt like they had 2 tons of weigh strapped to each of them. Maybe 2 tons is a bit of an exaggeration, but even for the brute that he was, he had trouble lifting them and moving. After a short time, he was finally able to get to his feet, but it was quite the task. He saw the shadelian host nearest to him. He noticed her limping before, so decided to go over to her.

Eventually making it near her, he flopped onto the ground, leaning against a tree. Of course, 450 lbs doesn’t fall to the ground without a sound, so he may have even woken the sleeping girl up by just sitting down. “Excuse me.” he cleared his throat before going on. “Miss, excuse me. I saw you limping before, and there seems to be some blood on your armor. It’s dried, but not old enough to have been from a past wound. Maybe you should get it checked out by one of the others. I saw the Sorian guardian help the Pyrian guardian earlier. I actually saw the Pyrian guardian going through her sack, which looked like medical supplies as well. I could be wrong, but I would think that at least one of them could help you. I doubt the old hosts wouldn’t have retrieved a medic to go along with us.”

Shadowmere waited for Jet to grab ahold, before leading him to the nearest person. Well maybe he wasn’t the nearest, but Shadowmere did love things with wings. She often chased Birds around, hopefully she would treat Ven differently. Jet couldn’t really make out what people were saying around him, which was more due to the fact of he was panicking a bit on the inside then anything else. As Shadowmere stopped, Jet spoke out. “Oi, someone there? Seems my eyes don’t wanna be workin’ ‘ight now so I could be usin’ a hand.”

----------

Zet smiled at Kassidy a bit. There was that mystery about her now, so obviously he just had to ask. “Well I won’t force you into anything, but I would like to know, Miss Anasiti. After all, being a guardian I’d like to know what exactly I’m in for.” He said in a more teasing manner, trying to maybe get her to open up about it. Zet knew they had to leave soon in order to make it to town by dark, but why sit there alone, when he could get to know her a bit more, right?

Monroe sat still in his meditation. In fact he was so still, if not for the small movements of his chest from breathing, it wouldn't have been out of the question to wonder if he had died right there. As Arienna began to apologize however, he broke his meditation and just looked up at her. "Do not think another thing of it. It is frustrating times that have fallen upon us, these gems not helping the situation either. I never was one that knew when advice was unwarranted. In the future I will try to hold it back, unless you come looking for it. I cannot say I won't offer it again by mistake, but I will try."

Monroe didn't want to piss any of them off, yet his advice did have that effect more often then he'd like to admit. He did notice the way some were moving through the area. It seemed like they should get moving soon. That meant time to try and get up. Monroe closed his eyes, focusing on lifting his limbs, one at a time. After a while he got one arm up and leaned it on the nearest tree. He'd use that to get the rest of his body up and moving.

----------

Scarlet followed Arienna, though she was still having difficulty standing, let alone walking after her without zigzagging everywhere. She smiled when Ari apologized, although she still knew that it wasn't exactly genuine. Baby steps though. She didn't expect Ari to change because of a ten minute conversation after all. When Ari finally looked at her, Scarlet gave a reassuring smile and a small nod. She apologized, so they didn't have to stay there anymore. "We'll leave you alone now." Scarlet said, peeking out from behind Ari, and grabbing onto her arm. She made it seem like she was starting to pull her away, or at least tried to make it seem like that. In reality she was using Ari to balance herself and stay standing. This walk was going to be more difficult then she thought.

----------

Zet did want to know what she meant, but he wouldn't push the issue. After all, that's what he got upset about more or less. As she started walking off, to only realize she had no idea where she was going, he just laughed a bit and sighed to himself. She did seem like she was going to be trouble, but a trouble he didn't mind at all. "Why don't you hold your horses and let me lead once everyone is ready? After all we wouldn't want to be split into groups and get attacked by Bandits, Bears, or any other animals in the woods, would we?" he walked over to Kass pulling her away from the forest a bit, and rubbing his hand on her arm, trying to warm her up a bit, though he doubted it helped. "We'll get there soon enough, okay?"

----------

Jet nodded as Ven made sure he was the light host. His next question was an odd one, but Jet didn't mind if the young girl rode on Shadowmere. "I'm sure Shadowmere won't mind, will ye girl?" Shadowmere purred a bit, which meant she didn't. Jet then nodded to Ven (even though he was facing the woods), although in reality he didn't know who the hell he was even talking too. "Umm... Don't think me rude or nothin' but who are ye? I don't be knowing voices yet, and lack of vision really dampens me ability to tell one from another. Oh and I can be fightin' without me eyes just fine.... At least if I was alone. Blind doesn't 'xactly let me tell friend from foe though."

You wouldn’t be able to believe how relieved Scarlet was as Ari put her arm around her to balance her. She tried not to show it much though. As soon as they were away from the others and Ari asked if the Gem was still plaguing her Scarlet just smiled putting on a brave face. “The what? Oh that silly old thing? No way, I got over that ages ago. I feel fit as a fiddle now. Like I could take on Rune’s army by myself!” Of course as she finished her statement she immediately pulled away from Arienna to go throw up in a nearby bush. After she was finished, she stumbled back over and leaned on Ari once more. “Okay... maybe a little....”

----------

Zet could only shake his head at Kass’ story about the bears. It was a little amusing to be perfectly honest. When he hard her start sniffling though, he turned around to look at her. She was crying... instantly he felt guilty about it. “Don’t cry Kass, I don’t mean any offense to you by pulling you away from the woods. I just don’t want you to get hurt... Not that I couldn’t protect you from everything in there, because I can. Or maybe I hurt you pulling you away too hard... I’m sorry, please don’t cry...”

Jet held Shadowmere showing her that it was okay as Ven loaded Nadanna onto her back. It was by far from the heaviest load she’d ever held before. “Oi, inventer ye say? Well that be soundin’ like somethin’ I don’t know ‘bout. Shadowmere ‘ere normally could be of help in guiding me, but she’s kind of preoccupied now.” He reached out and grabbed onto Ven’s wing, glad he remembered names well enough with the brief experience they had earlier. “I hope ye don’t mind if I just hold onto yer wing to follow ye.”

Scarlet tried to smile coyly, but Ari was correct. Still, she didn’t like worrying anyone. “I’m sorry... I just... I don’t want people to think I’m weak... Especially after the shit that ass hole said back in the cave. Insulting me... The gem picked me, so obviously it has better taste then him...” She leaned on Arienna, and crossed her arms in a childish manner. As Ari held out the water, Scar took it, and reluctantly drank a bit. After throwing up so much, she was weary and not wanting anything in her anymore, but Ari was right, so she trusted her judgment. Handing the water back to Ari, she smiled a little. “Thank you for the water... I’m alright, I think. I just may need to lean on you for a while... if that’s okay?”

Zet froze as she started talking. He honestly wasn’t ready for that at all. What should he say?.... What could he say?.... Guess he’d just have to wing it. “Things happen Kass... Don’t blame yourself. You said it was a hunter that killed it, well what exactly do you think that hunter was out there for? What exactly do you think the bears do for food? It’s basic instinct to kill. To survive... it’s almost a necessity. Kill or be killed. Kill to eat. Kill to protect your loved ones. Kill to protect your people. People... Animals... No matter what race or species, we all kill something. Weather it’s plants, or other creatures, we all kill for our own purposes. Parents lose their children, children lose their parents or their siblings, it’s life. Wipe your tears.” Zet walked over to her, and removed her hands from her eyes, wiping her eyes with his own two hands. “We’re at war Kassidy. We have to kill, or we’ll all die ourselves. If we die, so does the rest of Elenia. It’s the lesser of two evils... Survival of the fittest. You’re a kind and gentle spirit, however you can’t go on and feel bad for everyone we have to kill. If we do our jobs right, then we’ll have to kill many. Otherwise the people that can’t fight for themselves will suffer. Eleina will burn at the hands of Rune’s army. People, animals, all united in one giant massacre. No body wins then, and everyone loses people they love. So dry your tears, for we all need to be tough. For the sake of Elenia.”

Zet looked up at the sky and then back at Kass, before she even could respond. “Hang on a minute, we can continue this as we walk.” Zet stood up, on the elevated hill nearby, and called out to the group. “Everyone we can afford no more time for rest. I can make it to the town in 4 hours by myself, however with the current situation we’re in, we’d be lucky to make it in 7-8. Sundown is in 6 hours. We have to move now, so everyone please follow me. I’ll only walk at a pace that everyone can keep up with.”

Jet felt a little bad as Ven seemed to have such a negative reaction to him touching his wing. How would he have possibly known though? After all, the other race’s reaction to things weren’t exactly a common thing studied. They had their own lands for a reason. “Me apologies boyo. Yer shoulder will be fine. I suppose we will be a unit like a family. I don’t be havin’ a family meself, so it may be nice. Sounds like we all be needing to get movin’ though, so lead the way. Shadowmere will follow close, and I’ll be holdin’ on to ye.”


-------------------------

About 3 hours later they all continued on. They had made it almost half way. They’d make it to the town a little after dark at this rate, providing they kept the same pace. Something that seemed more difficult for some then others. Scarlet was still on her own two feet, but without Arienna to lean on, wouldn’t be moving at all. Monroe, though he didn’t show it, was having great difficulty moving forwards. There wasn’t much he couldn’t lift usually, and having his own limbs now being one of them, was quite the difficult task. Jet was moving along fine, holding onto Ven’s shoulder the whole time. Zet, still leading the group, hated moving so slow. Of course at least making sure Kass was okay, made it more tolerable.
