0 · 268 views · located in Large facility in the middle of the desert

a character in “Facility X”, as played by laxnchill20

Description

Name: Magiere Dimir

Species: Dhampir (Born of a human mother who was impregnated by a vampire)

Age: 21

Sex: Female

Height: 5'8

Weight 120

Appearance:

Image

she is the woman, the wolf is Ayla. The man doesn't exist.

Magiere has a very pale complexion, her skin is almost white, but despite this her skin does not tan or burn in the sun. Her hair is as black as night but it glistens with blood red highlights in the sun. She wears a lot of black because it allows her to disappear in the night. Furthermore, she wears leather armor to provide some protection while hunting. Also she wears silver plate armor on her left shoulder and knee that provide increased protection during hand to hand combat with vampires.



Abilities:

Because of her heritage Magiere has increased strength and reflexes. She also can drink the blood of others to further supplement her abilities. Because of her hatred for vampires she refuses to forcibly drink the blood of another, she will only drink another's blood if it is gifted to her. This rule is of course ignored for vampires and when she kills a vampire she will generally drink from its vein immediately after killing it, or during combat if she bites it. If she drinks the blood of most creatures, her strength and reflexes are further increased, and she can run at unnatural speeds. If she drinks the blood of a vampire, the regular benefits of blood consumption are increased and further more she gains the ability to see perfectly in the dark. Magiere has an immense knowledg of her prey, she has studied vampires and learned of many ways to kill them, including beheading, cremation, and the classic stake to the heart. Also she has learned that Vampires share weakness to silver with weres, but silver merely burns and is difficult for them to heal, it is not lethally toxic.

Track: After years of hunting she has gained the ability to track even the most discreet tracks with ease. She can follow a trail without slowing from her normal movement speed.

Two weapon combat: Magiere is incredibly skilled at two weapon combat, she can fight at masterful levels with her falchion and saber.

Hunter's Bond: She has an insanely close bond to Ayla. The two know what the other is going to do before they do it in combat. Ayla has saved Magiere's life and vice versa so many times they've lost count

Stealth: Magiere's years of hunting have provided her with the ability to all but disappear in most natural environments. She can move quickly and silently, if she doesn't want to be found, she won't be.

Personality

She is VERY flirtatious, and around most people and "creatures" she is calm, collected, and a genuinely pleasant being to be around. It takes a bit to get her to open up about her past. But once you gain her trust you have a life long friend who will fight and die for you.



Likes:

~She has a sweet tooth
~Bladed weapons, such as knives, swords, and daggers
~Her wolf, Ayla

Dislikes:

~Vampires
~When someone is judged unfairly
~Long range weaponry, killing should be personal

Equipment

Leather Armor- her leather armor was left for her by her father, although she doesn't know why.
Plate Armor- the silver plate was also left by her father.
Silver Falchion- Her silver Falchion was left with the armor when her father ran out. She has vowed to use it to kill her father. She uses this sword in her dominant right hand in combat.
Saber- She also carries a saber, whose sheath hangs of her right hip. There is nothing significant about the saber other than she uses it successfully with her left hand in combat.

History

Magiere's mother died in childbirth, she was raised by her aunt. She was not aware of her heritage until she was 12. When she was young she was teased by other kids because of her fascination with bladed weaponry. On her twelfth birthday her aunt gave her a package that was left to her by her father. Her aunt had never given her any information about her father before, but today she learned the truth. Magiere opened the package, which contained the leather armor, the silver plate and the silver falchion. Her aunt explained that her father was a vampire, who courted Magiere's mother for two years before they married, but upon learning of Magiere's mother's pregnancy her father ran off, leaving only the package for his child to open on his/her 12th birthday. Although she was happy to finally know the truth, knew problems arose. The teasing at school turned to persecution, other people hated having a dhampir around. After 4 years of persecution and hate Magiere was fed up with it all, she left home at 16, vowing to kill every last vampire until she found her father and beheaded him for cursing her with this terrible existence. She spent the next 5 years hunting vampires, in that time she killed 7 vampires. With each kill she learned more and more about her prey, improving her technique until now she is one of the best vampire hunters around, although to be fair there aren't many vampire hunters in general. After those 5 years about 3 or 4 days before her 21st birthday the government officials had finally tracked her down, telling her that although the populace does like the lowered vampire population, she herself is not human and thus had to live at the facility, where she was informed that killing any resident vampires would not be allowed. She arrives at the facility on her 21st birthday.

So begins...

Magiere arrived at the facility in a car full of government officials, at their request her weapons were locked up in a case in the trunk of the vehicle. While driving through the desert she was horrified as everything around her was dead, she loved the outdoors and hated to think of what it would be like to live here. Her fears were dispelled when the car pulled through the gates of the facility revealing a veritable paradise. "Enter the lobby and ask for Timber, she will be able to help you find your room and get settled." one of the guards told her. "thank you" she replied flatly. She walked into the lobby, a little surprised to see chairs all over the place, tables flipped and the like, it looked as if a hurricane had just passed through it. She saw what looked like an information desk and walked up to it, "excuse me could I please speak with Timber, the official who brought me here said she would help me to find my room." Magiere asked the clerk. "Just a moment, she is with someone else, have a seat and she'll be with you when she returns, that man over there" she gestures to Stelian, "is also waiting for Timber, I'm sure she can help you both when she get's back." The clerk explained happily. "thanks" Magiere said flatly yet again. She walks to a table that hasn't been flipped, picks up a chair and sits down to wait for Timber.

Sierra pulls away and looks down again. 'Sorry' she manages to mutter before she bursts into tears and runs off down the corridor. She rushes the ought the lobby, she looks around then rushes out the door. She runs to the Aviary and sheds her human form. She snaps open her wings and flys around for a bit. She feels a bit better when she soars around.



Timber looks up to see Sierra go wizzing past her. Timber sees the tears on her face and goes to shout after her but Sierra was already gone. Instead she walks into the lobby where a new woman is waiting. She walks over. 'Hey dhampir I'm Timber do you need me to show you to your room?'

A woman walks up to Magiere "Hey dhampir I'm Timber do you need me to show you to your room?" she asks.
"Hello, I am Magiere Dimir, and yes please show me to my room". Magiere replies politely. As she stands and the two begin to walk to the dorms. "I noticed a bar in the lobby, is there anything else to do here? Is there anywhere I can train with these?" as she asks the second question she gestures to her swords. As she says this they see a man walking towards them.
"Hey Timber!" he says before turning to Magiere, "I'm Firvin, I've been here for a few years, who might you be?" he asks her.
"I am Magiere, Timber was taking the time out of her busy day to show me around, what is that around your neck?" she replied.
Firvin chuckled slightly, "This is Revion, he looks like a regular vine but as you can see he is alive, but don't worry he wouldn't hurt anyone" as he said this Revion lifts his 'head' towards Magiere and then back to its rest position. "Timber, I know there is a lot to take care of in the lobby, why don't you go take care of that and I'll show our new friend around." He said offering her his hand to shake.

A girl walks in the door. "Hi, my name is Kalin, what's your name? Are you new? I'm new too. I'm a demon. What are you?Wait, sorry, sorry, too many questions. OK, first your name. Then I am guessing you're new because I have never seen you. Then, what are you? Kalin blushes.

Ouka got slowly to her paws. When she uses a large amount of magic her body automatically shifts to this state. She whined and moved toward Timber. She tilted her head as if asking a question. "Is there an open area I can stay at?" She barked hoping Timber could understand her. "I don't like being in a small space in this form."

After his brief introduction Stelian decided he would find a room himself everyone else was quite preoccupied. Before he was able to exit the room completely the door opened and therein stood another new arrival. She was taller for a woman but around her was and air of danger that Stelian believed only he was able to see as she received a rather warm welcome. 'I think it would do me well to avoid that one. She doesn't seem a very safe companion.' He turned on his heel and left heading off to find an empty room he could make his own reading his paperwork as he went thinking he could find a room number in the papers. He lucked out and found on on the final page and began searching.

As Firvin, Magiere and Timber were talking, a green haired man walks into the hallway then abruptly leaves only to come back a moment later holding his paper work. Firvin was first to acknowledge him "Hello, you new here as well? I was just about to show Magiere here around if you would like to join us I'm sure we could find both of your rooms as well get a bite, I don't know about you two but I'm starving". Magiere speaks to them both and afterwards Firvin gestures toward another hallway "Out this way is the mall, it has a food court for a quick bite, or a restaurant if we want something more substantial".

Magiere was talking with Timber and Firvin when an incredibly handsome man who appeared about twenty walked into the hallway only to leave again right away. That's odd she thought to herself. She was taken aback and when he returned and Firvin began talking to him she barely heard him speak, too focused on this new tall and handsome man. She looks at the new man, as he approached she got a strange feeling, the kind of feeling she only felt when she was hunting, That's impossible, I know there are vampires here, but he doesn't look like a typical vampire and the sun still shining. she thought to herself as she ran her tongue across her pronounced canines, hating that particular gift from her father the most. "Firvin a bite to eat sounds wonderful, although I would love to get to my room and change first, it would be nice to take off this armor for a while, and see my wolf". she said gesturing to the silver plates on her shoulder and knee. "Seeing as we're both new I wouldn't be surprised if our rooms are nearby, maybe you'd like to meet Ayla, despite her species she's quite friendly with most people" she said to the tall man with a wink. "By the way I didn't catch your name, mines Magiere" she said cutely.

While wandering the halls Stelian runs into a small group. An apparent elf addresses him. "Hello, you knew here as well? I was just about to show Magiere here around if you would like to join us I'm sure we could find both of your rooms as well get a bite, I don't know about you two but I'm starving. Out this way is the mall, it has a food court for a quick bite, or a restaurant if we want something more substantial". "Yes food does sound good. I'm rather fond of restaurants myself I've yet to get a good rare steak from a fast-food restaurant."

The woman wearing armor speaks up before they head off. "Firvin a bite to eat sounds wonderful, although I would love to get to my room and change first, it would be nice to take off this armor for a while, and see my wolf". she said gesturing to the silver plates on her shoulder and knee. "Seeing as we're both knew I wouldn't be surprised if our rooms are nearby, maybe you'd like to meet Ayla, despite her species she's quite friendly with most people" she said to the tall man with a wink. "By the way I didn't catch your name, mines Magiere" she said cutely.

Stelian smiles at the woman. "That would be because I didn't offer my name though if you wish to know I'm called Stelian. As to your 'Alya' I've never had a problem with pets though I prefer those of Canine decent." 'Odd she has some features of a vampire though she is quite obviously not a vampire. She is out in daylight after all I'm the only day-walker. I'd best not press the issue she will tell me when she is ready.' He chuckles to himself lightly and turns to the elf. "So sorry, Yes I am new here I attempted to introduce myself earlier but there was a bit of a ruckus in the main hall so I figured it best to leave you all be. I went off to search for my room but with little success."

Firvin takes Stelian's paperwork without a word and glances at it finding the room number. "Both your rooms are down this way." He said heading off down the hall.

"That would be because I didn't offer my name though if you wish to know I'm called Stelian. As to your Ayla I've never had a problem with pets though I prefer those of Canine decent." Stelian said to Magiere with a slight chuckle. "So sorry, yes I am new here I attempted to introduce myself earlier but there was a bit of a ruckus in the main hall so I figured it best to leave you all be. I went off to search for my room but with little success."

"Oh you like canines? My Ayla despite her lineage acts just like a husky around people you'll love her, you simply must come meet her when we find our rooms." she exclaimed with a smile. She wipes her brow dramatically, "these swords are getting heavy, you wouldn't mind carrying them for me until we get to my room would you?" she gestured to the falchion and saber on her hips. It was clear she carries them regularly and should not actually need help carrying them, He is rather cute, I hope he takes the bait, it'll be nice to be in one place for a while so I can actually get to know someone, and he seems nice enough she thought to herself. She smiled at him as they followed Firvin down the hall.

"These swords are getting heavy, you wouldn't mind carrying them for me until we get to my room would you?" Stelian smiles at the request. 'She's obviously not tired one could assume that she carries those on a daily basis. Though making an ally of this person could prove to be quite useful.' After a moment he looks at her. "Sure I'd love to carry your blades for you." He holds out his hand to accept them. 'Before I let her get to close I should find out exactly what she is and weather or not she means me harm.' "So before the government asked you to come reside here what did you do? And if you don't mind my asking what manner of creature are you as none of us are completely human here." They continue down the hall following Firvin to their respective rooms.

Stelian smiles and then looks at Magiere, "Sure I'd love to carry your blades for you." He extends his hands to retrieve them from her. "So before the government asked you to come reside here what did you do? And if you don't mind my asking what manner of creature are you as none of us are completely human here." He asks her.
Before she could responds Timber stepped forward cutting her off, 'Yes Dhampir what did you do? I'm Curious' Just then Timbers phone beeps and she steps aside to answer it, coming back with a huge smile.

Magiere hands the swords to Stelian with a smile, "Thank you, and if you must know, as Timber here has said, I am Dhampir, we're a rare breed. My mother fell in love with a vampire and they married but when he discovered she was pregnant he left. As for my profession, I didn't really have one. I was looking for my father, I want to have a 'discussion' with him." The word discussion is filled with malice and hate but immediately following she returns to her normal happy self. "And you Stelian, what are you and what was it you do? If you don't mind my asking." she turns the question around on him with a flirtatious grin.

b]'He is a vampire.'[/b] Timber informs the group. He doesn't seem evil like all the other ones, I won't kill him yet, maybe he can help she thinks to herself unsurely. 'I need to go find Sierra meet me in the lobby in an hour. Don't be late' Timber informed them.

Firvin upon hearing Timber dismiss herself responds "Alright see ya later Timber, tell Sierra I say Hi! Oh and I found your rooms, Magiere yours is right here" he gestures to a door on the right side of the hallway, "and Stelian yours is across the hall, unfortunately we'll have to cancel that bite to eat, but I'll see you in the lobby in an hour, Timber seemed serious so make sure you're there." He said to them and left.

Magiere thankful to finally be at her room, opens her door and finds that all of her belongings are already there,. "Thank you Stelian, for carrying my blades, please come in and set them down anywhere." She says as she enters the room. "OH AYLA YOU'RE HERE!!" She exclaims as she drops down on her knees to pet her wolf. Ayla is ecstatic to see her, barking and yipping like a dog. She stands "Ayla this is Stelian, Stelian this is Ayla." She introduces them.

"Alright see ya later Timber, tell Sierra I say Hi! Oh and I found your rooms, Magiere yours is right here and Stelian yours is across the hall, unfortunately we'll have to cancel that bite to eat, but I'll see you in the lobby in an hour, Timber seemed serious so make sure you're there." "Alright see you in an hour. Thank you for the help."

"Thank you Stelian, for carrying my blades, please come in and set them down anywhere. OH AYLA YOU'RE HERE!! Ayla this is Stelian, Stelian this is Ayla." "I assure you it was no problem. I'm not one to tire easily." Stelian chuckles as Magiere pets her wolf introducing them. "It is nice to meet you Ayla." He reaches down and pets the wolf as he continues slowly and a bit reluctantly. 'Hopefully she'll believe me... "Timber was only half correct in her statement. I'm not only a vampire I'm a Day-walker. I was an experiment by the Vampire Council I was supposed to bring a new age of vampires ones who didn't fear the light. I never wanted to be a vampire and I don't take kindly to being used as an experiment. The Council and I are currently on disagreeable terms." Stelian sets the blades down on Magiere bed. "Well that's my story if you need me I'll be in my room getting settled in. Feel free to stop by whenever if you wish." With that he turns on his heel and exits the room closing Magiere's door behind him.

"Timber was only half correct in her statement. I'm not only a vampire I'm a Day-walker. I was an experiment by the Vampire Council I was supposed to bring a new age of vampires ones who didn't fear the light. I never wanted to be a vampire and I don't take kindly to being used as an experiment. The Council and I are currently on disagreeable terms. Well that's my story if you need me I'll be in my room getting settled in. Feel free to stop by whenever if you wish." Stelian explained to Magiere as he placed her blades on her bed. I might just trust this vampire She thought to herself as he left the room.

After spending a few minutes getting her room settled she looked at Ayla "What do you think of him, anything weird about him?" she asked the wolf, who responded with nothing but an agreeable yip. "You like him too then." she confirms. After her conversation with her dog she removes the leather and plate armor to take a shower. After her shower she puts on a black pair of jeans and a black long-sleeved shirt. She looks at herself in the mirror Simple, yet functional she thinks. She looks at the clock realizing it has been almost an hour and begins getting ready to go to the lobby.

Magiere was just about to leave her room, but she felt strange I hate being unarmed, but I don't want to walk around my knew home with swords, it might be uncomfortable for others she thinks eyeing her room. She makes eye contact with Ayla She's killed vampires to save my life, and she's playful enough with others that she wouldn't scare anyone she thinks to herself "Ayla, come on we're going for a walk" she says with a sly smile. She exits her and locks her room, with Ayla walking in step, Ayla is not on a leash, as she never was and Magiere saw no need to restrain her, she was well trained. "Ayla don't snarl at anyone, not even the vampire, we're gonna trust him, and we don't want to have to lock you in the room" she said to her wolf as they made their way to the lobby. Upon reaching the lobby she spotted Firvin and Timber standing by two kids who appeared in their early teens. "Hiya Firvin, Hey Timber" she greeted the adults with a smile. "I'm Magiere and this is my wolf Ayla, don't worry she's as friendly as any dog you've met." She said introducing herself to the kids.

Sierra continued to smile, "Riley's coming back" she squeals. Slias's face lit up. Riley was coming home?! Silas grew up with Riley as a sort of older sister/mom. She' was the one who taught him how to commune with nature, how to use magic. She was a huge part of his life, and the lives of all the residents of the Facility. She was its heart, its soul, its very center. Everything revolved around Riley. She was the perfect leader, kind and compassionate, but she would defend the Facility and its residents with fierce loyalty if it ever came down to it. Silas smiled. "Well what are we waiting for? Let's go!" Silas said happily, placing his gloves in his pocket and taking Sierra's hand.

Sierra removed her wings from around them and led Silas out the practice room. They walked down to the lobby hand-in-hand. Silas grinning like an idiot the whole time. He looked around. Everyone was there. Firvin was smiling at him and flashed him the thumbs-up. Silas sheepishly rubbed his empty hand on his neck. Timber was there, but when Silas tried to meet her gaze, she looked away. Was she... blushing? It couldn't be, not Timber, she must have just been excited to see Riley, just like Silas was. He disregarded her blushing. There was a woman, who Silas hadn't met, that walked in with a wolf padding along silently next to her. She said hello to FIrvin and Timber, so she couldn't be all bad. Still, Silas was never good with meeting new people. She spoke up, "I'm Magiere and this is my wolf Ayla, don't worry she's as friendly as any dog you've met." She said introducing herself to Silas and Sierra. "Umm... hi." Silas said quietly. He cleared his throat and spoke up, he wasn't sure if she'd heard him, but it was still so hard to be himself around people he hadn't met. "Hi, I'm Silas, I'm a warlock." he said, louder this time, but still just a little shy.

However, by looking around, Silas saw the damage he'd done. It wasn't that long ago that he'd destroyed half the lobby. To be fair, it was Bane who'd done it, but Silas was still saddened by destruction. It wasn't something he wanted Riley to come home to. Still, he couldn't stay sad. Silas was holding hands with Sierra. He had even kissed the girl, that beautiful, wonderful girl, three times in a single day. Just thinking about it gave him goosebumps and made him smile wider. He was so happy.

Further, Silas had begun the process of befriending Bane. If he could do so, he could finally unlock the secrets in his mind. He noticed that there were parts of his soul that were locked off to others, places only Bane could go. They needed to be broken open. Silas had to know. That however, could wait. Silas could hear the sound of a helicopter's blades thumping against the air. He broke into an even wider grin. Riley was home!

After Silas introduced himself, he looked down towards the floor, smiling sheepishly. There was just something about meeting new people that unnerved him. He didn't know why. Sierra rubbed his hand, "It's ok," she whispered to him, getting Silas to smile. "I'm Sierra, I'm Lucifer's angel." she says smiling. "This is Silas, my boyfriend." As if to prove her point she stretched up and gently kissed him. Silas blushed, kissing was great in private, but in front of everybody it was a little too much for him. He didn't mind her kissing him whenever she pleased, in fact, he liked her boundless confidence. It was his favorite trait of hers, however, it still didn't change the fact that it was being done in front of everybody. Maybe they could talk about it later. "You may have to be careful with her around Cole he is very dominant." She says gesturing to Alya, at which point, SIlas nodded in approval. Cole was territorial and strong. Though he'd be friendly once he got to know her, there would definitely be some conflict over dominance in the future. At that point, Firvin came up to them. "Hey everyone, what's up?" he said, greeting them. 'Not much.' Sierra says with a giggle. Silas blushed and studied his shoes. He knew Firvin would say something embarrassing about his dating Sierra, he just wasn't sure what. Silas, however, didn't have time to prepare a rebuttal, the sounds of helicopter blades were becoming even stronger. It was here!

The doors blew open from the wind made by the helicopter blades and Riley stepped in. She looked around, blackened furniture lay strewn across the floor and there were marks on all the walls. She looked back at the large group who had gathered to meet her. "What the Hell happened here?" she exclaims a smile breaking across her face. Timber ran forward and hugged her in a friendly way. Cole whined at Riley's feet so Timber lent down and scratched his over sized head. Silas saw Timber say something, and Riley nodded. She must have told him it was Bane's... his fault. Silas's eyes were boring holes in the carpet. He was so ashamed of what he'd done.

Just as Silas was about to stop contemplating the carpet patterns, he heard footsteps. Riley walked up to him, and handed Silas a rectangular, thin box. She took a step over and produced a large wrapped box with holes in it. She handed it to Sierra gently. "Be careful with her." She said before walking over to the rest of the group, she handed out other gifts to the new-comers, Magiere, Daine, Asher, Ouka, and Stelian. The final gift she has, she hands to Timber.

Silas waited until everyone had gotten their presents, then he carefully opened the small, wrapped box. Inside was a wand. It was a dark, strong wood with runes carved into it, and a blue stone placed in a socket on the end of the handle. It was no ordinary, toy wand. Silas could feel the power flowing from it. It was a powerful tool for channeling energy and creating magic. Silas gasped when he picked it up. It was perfectly sized for his hand. Riley always brought him back something nice, but this was too much. Silas ran over to her and threw his arms around her. "Thank you so much!" Silas exclaimed, though his voice was muffled, as he'd buried his face in her midriff. Letting go slightly, his arms still wrapped around her waist, Silas looked up at Riley, "It's perfect!" He said, his eyes lighting up and a huge smile breaking across his face. "Well, no better time to test it out than right now. Let's see..." He trailed off, rummaging around until he found his book of spells. Riley had helped him write it.

Leafing through the pages, his eyes scanning for a particular spell, Silas stopped suddenly, he'd found it. Silas put the book down on the floor, and raised his wand and off hand like a conductor preparing for his concert. He closed his eyes, and began chanting in a low voice in words only understandable by witches. His hair flung upwards, as if a wind were blowing it and a small magic circle made of light appeared around his ankles, hovering a few inches off the ground. After a good half a minute of chanting, Silas raised his other hand then flicked the wand once, twice, as if tapping a music stand, and made a grand sweeping motion with his wand. Silas finished the gesture with a skyward, spiral flourish before slowly bringing down both his hands. Like water pouring over the lobby, all of the burn marks made by Bane washed away, leaving the place as if it'd been completely refurbished. After a second or so, the light faded, Silas's hair fell back to its usual style, and his eyes opened. Silas sat down, "Whew... that was hard." Silas said. "Still, I'm glad I could fix something, I... I hate how Bane wrecked our home like that." Silas paused for a moment, clearly upset at what Bane had done. He shook it off and spoke up again, "This wand is very strong Riley, are you sure you want me to have it?" he asked.

(OOC: Sorry, double posted on accident.)

After a while of sitting and watching it becomes apparent that this meeting is a reunion of old friends. Stelian begins to feel slightly out of place around all of the reminiscing and greetings. He decides to go off to the Vampire haven and practice some of his attack patterns. 'I doubt they'll miss me and I'd rather not interrupt their reunion.' He wanders through the halls until he finds a door marked Vampires. He opens it and walks in. Inside are practice dummies and the room is almost completely dark shutoff from all natural light lamps illuminate the edges of the room. "So this is the practice area for vampires..." He finds a group of practice dummies and takes his stance with a rope dart in hand. After a moment he launches the dart at one of the dummies flicking the string as he did so causing the rope to wrap around the dummy's neck as the bolt impacted. After pulling the rope tight the dummy vanishes in a puff of dust. A smile comes to Stelian's face. 'This is going to be fun.' He continues practicing using each of his weapons in turn finishing off with practicing some hand to hand combat against a group of moving dummies.

As Silas fills his head with worrying, Sierra picks up on it and says, "Don't worry." Sierra had whispered the words, just loud enough for Silas to hear, and draw confidence from, all the while stroking his hand softly. Silas smiled at her, "Thanks," he said, his voice just loud enough for her to hear. "I just can't help it. He's been a part of me for as long as I can remember. He's been around every corner, every closed door, and inside every dark room. He's everywhere, and he's nowhere all at once. How can I beat that? How can I be strong enough to face him, to protect you, and all my family here, from him?"

Riley must have heard Silas worrying about the wand and about Bane, because she said, "Don't worry about the wand and Bane. It was made especially for you. No-one else can use it not even him." she says with a happy sigh. "It is all yours." She adds. Silas's face instantly brightened, "Really?" He asked, his voice full of joy, "it's just for me? That's a huge relief. I was just thinking how horrible it would be for him to get a hold of it. Whew, well, it's been fun, but... ummm..." Silas said, trailing off and looking at Sierra pointedly, hoping she'd take the hint that he wanted to go somewhere else, to be with just her. It had been a long day, Silas wanted to spend his time with Sierra, relaxing and just being with her. She made him feel calm, and simultaneously confident.

Magiere stood calmly as Cole lunged toward Ayla intimidatingly, "Stand your ground, he's bigger than you but your faster." She said to her wolf, knowing full well she can handle herself. Ayla had saved Magiere's life on many an occasion, even killing Vampires, Magiere was sure she could handle Cole. "OK go" Magiere said to Ayla, who leaped to the left and around to Cole's side before diving towards his neck with her fangs barred. Magiere smiled at Riley.

Firvin stood back as everyone greeted Riley and had their reunion, He was happy to see her again, but he just stood back letting everyone else rush her, he would spend time with her later, he thought to himself. He watched as Cole and the Dhampir woman's wolf began to fight This one might actually put up a fight, I wonder how Cole will handle it he thinks to himself. He walks over to Riley to watch the fight from a better angle. "This one shows promise, what do ya think?" he said to her jokingly.

Ayla spent the first half of the fight testing her opponent. He allowed her to dodge her first move. She danced with him allowing him to get close, shoving her to the floor. She allowed him to take a bite or two at her, it wouldn't hurt much, she had dealt with worse. He pushes her to the floor again ready to bite her neck if she doesn't submit, she snarled a little. Rolling out from under him, she stands with a quick howl. Cole is visibly upset, he thought he had a kill. Ayla who is much swifter than Cole now runs at him at her real speed, dodging to the side and jumping over him slashing down at his face placing a cut across his eye. She lands as he turns around to face her. He lunges at her with brute force, attempting to use his size to his advantage, Ayla dodges around his attack and kicks him to the ground. He recovers quickly ready to lunge at her again.

Magiere watches the first half of the fight unconcerned, when Cole had pinned Ayla Magiere called to her "Quit toying with him already!" She watched as Ayla quickly turned the fight around but before she had a chance to force Cole to submit Magiere called out to her once more "Come Ayla, a draw is fair enough, you don't need to harm anyone today. I think I saw a practice room you can expend your adrenaline in." Ayla and Magiere walk away completely ignoring their recent opponent.

The tiger morphs back into Timber " Yes I'm Timber, the second in command at this place. Just a word of advice, stay on Riley's good side she could make your life a living hell. Do you want to get a drink?" she says to Magiere. Magiere thought for a minute, looking at the ground. She looks back at Timber, "I could use one after that. And I didn't mean to offend her, Ayla is very loyal to me, we have been fighting together for years. She would ever submit to anyone, she's too stubborn and cares for me too much. Anyway let's go get that drink" she says.

Revion watched as Riley and Shard conversed, there was a break in the conversation so he slithered out of his nearby potted plant and over to Riley, He climbs up onto the table and looks toward her, waiting for an acknowledgement.



Timber smiled at Magiere, Yes I can take you there after our drinks, if you would like." she replies to Magiere's question. "That would be lovely" she replied "I'm going to have to stop by my room and get my swords, but if you just show me where it is I can find my way back there after getting my things." she replies. Magiere takes a sip of her drink, it was steaming and hot, just how she liked her coffee. It was a dark roast with a deep and strong flavor, she preferred her coffee this way, lighter flavors just seem tasteless on her semi-vampiric tongue. She takes a big drink of her coffee, "Don't like coffee?" she joked with a smile?
