Ouka Frostfang's Story

Ouka was brought into the facility in a cage. She was in her wolf form with a muzzle on while dirt covered her white fur. They had taken her from her home in the forest to a place like this. She did put up a fight and that's why the muzzle. They opened her cage and quickly left the facility. Ouka looked around in dismay, it looked like paradise but it could never compare to her grand forest. She growled as the guards left without taking off the stupid muzzle.

Sierra saw the Wolf being dragged in and forgot about her group. rushing over she takes off the muzzle. 'You must be Ouka' Sierra says waiting for her to shift to human form. 'Now those guards are really gonna pay.' she says fuming with anger. she walks to the door the guards dissapeared through. Her body was shaking ferociously and counting to ten wasnt helping. shedding her human form she partialy opens her wings. she draws her sword ready to get revenge for the poor wolf. No-one should be treated like that. she also needed the paper work. turning back to the matter at hand Sierra could feel the heat radiating off her body. she continued to pound on the door to the break room. she got ready to kick it down.

Timber could feel something wrong, she made her excuses to Daine and Asher and ran back to the lobby full speed. When she got there she knew she was just in time. Sierra's usuals; Silas and Firvin where there. there was also a new person and a wolf on the floor. she turned to Sierra who was ready to break the door down. even though Timber had seen Sierra in this form many times the beauty shocked her. Taking control of the situation she ran to Sierra and grabbed a wing pulling her back far enough For Timber to stand in front o the door. someone standing in front of Sierra was usualy enough to stop her but today she wasnt detered. 'Someone detain her!' Timber called as Sierra swung her sword at Timber.

Firvin witnessed the caged wolf enter, and was a little thankful, because now he doesn't have to lie about Revion's whereabouts. But when Sierra started to get really upset Firvin got nervous, He covered Silas so he didn't have to witness this happen. "And to think she was worried about you..." Firvin muttered.

Without the muzzle on, Ouka shifted into her human form. She watched as the woman who took the muzzle off, flew into a rampage. Literally. She watched in amazement as she had wings. "I'm alright." Ouka said hoping to ease the tension.

Sierra calmed down a little and put away her sword but she still had anger to burn, she ran outside and snapped open her wings lifting off the ground she felt a bit better. She flew to the Aviary and pulled out her pass. She landed and put her pass in the card slot, it beeped and the door opened. she walked in and sat on the bench, she may not look it but she was only 13 she had alot to deal with.

Timber sighed and turned to Firvin, 'Thanks, that helped a lot.' she said and she meant it. Then she turned to Ouka, 'Are you ok?' she wondered quickly scanning the girl for injuries. when she finds none she stands up and offer's her a hand. 'Now lets find a room from you.' she say happily, trying to draw attention away from the now nonexistant Sierra. Timber kind of felt sorry for Sierra, she died young and now she's in this place, Timber wasnt much older and even she found this place daunting. The only thing she could do was clutch the charm Riley, her witch friend gave her and hoped it would bring her courage.

"Of course it's him, Bane doesn't draw like that. What ya working on over there buddy? Also you haven't ordered anything yet, what do you want, it's on me." Firvin says while putting an arm around Silas in a quick hug, trying to cheer the boy up. The overall effect on Silas, though the Firvin's intentions were kind, was uncomfortable. He shied away from Firvin, ever so slightly, almost not even noticeably. Before Silas could respond that he'd like a soda, Firvin whispers something to Revion, and Revion slithers off his shoulders and out of site.

"I know just checking, Bane could be playing a trick on us. remember the last time?" Sierra said and shivered at the thought. Silas, hung his head a little, he remembered last time vaguely. The only thing he remembered about last time was that a whole wing of the facility had to be remade. "No the drinks are on me. I don't have to pay." She reminds them. Silas smiled, Sierra was nice.

Silas looked up. Someone new had come into the facility. A werewolf from the look of it, all chained and muzzled. It was horrible. The poor thing must be terrified, all locked up like that. That's when all hell broke loose. Sierra went on a rampage, attempting to kill the guards who brought in the wolf. Firvin left the bar, flying after her as fast as he could, telling Silas to, "Just keep calm and focus on drawing." before going off to help Miss Timber detain Sierra who looked like she was about to slice something to ribbons. Firvin was right, Sierra thought HE was the one who was going to be all worked up. Still, Silas got up. He hated to see Sierra so upset. He jogged over to where she was, trying to get a hold on her to calm her down, but she was struggling too fiercely. In the struggle, Firvin accidentally smacked him right in the nose and knocked Silas to the ground, giving him a nose bleed and setting his eyes watering. Eventually, Sierra took to the Aviary, attempting to blow off steam, and the new werewolf was standing in her human form, de-muzzled. However, Silas hadn't noticed any of that. He was still sitting on his butt, trying not to cry. He knew Firvin didn't mean to hit him, he knew Firvin would never, but still. He hit him right on the nose. That had really hurt.

"Oh dear gods. Really?" The world froze. Bane materialized in front of him, like a wisp of smoke suddenly growing corporeal from nothing. "A bonk on the nose. That's gonna make you cry? Puh-lease... Alrighty, it's been a while, but hand us over, it's time to play." "No..." Silas said, barely even a whisper. "No, I won't let you." Silas said, still extremely quietly. "Well, I asked nicely, I'm taking it now!" Bane roared, diving at Silas, his body turning to smoke before it hit him. At that moment, the world shuddered around him. It was him. It was Bane. He was taking over. A thick, bloody red and black aura slowly enveloped Silas. The aura twisted and writhed, as if it had a mind of it's own. Silas felt his eyes roll back into his head. The world faded from him and he fell the rest of the way to the floor. After only a brief moment, Bane's eyes snapped open, golden and not the slightest bit comforting. The world slowly sped up and everyone else turned to look at him. Standing up and brushing himself off, Bane smiled his twisted evil smirk, his slightly longer canines showing. "Well hello there." Bane said, his voice slightly deeper than Silas's, he also sounded more cultured, but there was a rasp to his speech. "So nice to see you all again." Bane said, still smirking evilly. "It's been a while, hasn't it? Timber, Firvin, I'm so sorry, but little Silas won't be coming back for a little while. He wants to let you know that he's very sorry for letting you down, but apparently I'm too strong. Poor baby... Well, I'm off, I have dreams to smash, people to fight, and then, when I'm all done I have to bask in my own glory. I've got a long and busy schedule, so if you don't mind, ta ta!" Bane said, twirling and sauntering off, still grinning evilly.

Ouka took this persons hand. "Thanks." She tried not to look sad. It was hard on her coming to a place that was not so open. She never hurt anybody in her forest. Well except brats who defiled it by chopping down trees and littering. She'd give them a scare but that was the extent of her doings. Sort of. She didn't want to remember that day.

She smiled until, all of a sudden, all of the hair on the back of her neck stood on end. Where is this evil feeling coming from? Ouka turned and saw a child. It couldn't be from him? She showed her fangs and poised to attack. She then saw him dive, at an incredible height, for the woman who was helping her. Ouka did the only thing she could do, she created an ice wall and pulled Timber out of the way. "I don't think that'll stop him.." She stated "My magic is not too strong."

Timber nods. 'Yes but we need to protect Sierra, she is the youngest here.' Timber smiles at the look of shock on Sierra's face. 'but i agree she is going to be the key. we need to sort ourselves out in here, Sierra can you manifest food?' Sierra nods and to show she can she manifests a plate of bacon. Timber's mouth begins to water.

Sierra picks up a peice of bacon and chews it slowly, she turns back to her human form and stands up. she walks to the edge of the circle. 'Silas i know you are there please come out, you're stronger then him maybe nod in strength but in character, whatever powers he has you have the same, i know you're there just show yourself. Except you can't, I know why you're in there its because you are afraid, afraid of being alone, afraid to be something other then that, a cold hard machine. but you can be, you can survive this.' Sierra catches his eye and it holds he doesnt break away.

Ouka growled at Bane. She heard the elf named Firvin say that attacks are not effective. Her magic defense are not to well but they can slow him down. "Better think of something quick." She made another ice shield and moved closer to the rest of the group.

Bane, the Outside World.


As Bane walked calmly and coldly over to Sierra, he was tackled by a fifteen foot tall dragon. Bane yelled in fury, "Get off!" Bane moved his own arms as if to intercept the attack, and the giant skeleton followed suit, grabbing the dragon and throwing him off of him. The dragon clawed at him, slapped him with his tail, and attempted to burn him to a crisp. Bane's skeleton couldn't dodge the tail and it knocked him slightly off balance, but not enough to knock him over. Bane steadied himself and intercepted the claw, applying pressure and leaning into him so as to get back up. He dug the skeletal claws into the dragon's soft paw as he did so. When he finally stood, the dragon attempted to roast him alive. The fire didn't even phase him, the skeleton absorbed it, and used the energy to create more aura, and covered his skeletal giant's body in muscles made of aura. The skeleton roared and thrashed about some more, wrecking everything around him. When the dragon finally backed off, Bane roared in triumph, and turned back towards Sierra who had put up a shield to protect them. Bane strode over to the group, who were hiding behind the shield. There were others behind him, challenging him with raised swords, however, they weren't his target. They could wait, Sierra was first.

Bane raised his right arm and swung it forward as hard as he could, the giant on top of him mimicking his movements. The giant raged at the invisible wall in front of him, pounding it repeatedly with all four arms. Just as he was about to break through, he caught Sierra's gaze.

"Silas i know you are there please come out, you're stronger than him. Maybe not in raw strength but in character, whatever powers he has you have too. I know you're in there so just show yourself... except you can't. I know why you're in there. It's because you are afraid, afraid of being alone, afraid to be something other than that cold hard machine. But you can be more, you can survive this." She said stoically, not breaking her gaze with Bane, looking straight into his cruel golden eyes without flinching. Bane just smirked coldly at her and flung his fist ito the air, the barrier was crumbling, once more was all it would take. He was just about to retort with a snappy rebuttal, about how Silas was a cowering weakling and would never beat the mighty Bane when he began to swing his hand down one final time. Suddenly he stopped, Bane dropped to his knees and screamed an unholy scream, as if he was in the most pain anyone had ever endured. Silas was... fighting him? No! It couldn't be! He was... winning?

Silas, within Their Soul.


When Silas opened his eyes, he was surrounded by darkness, sitting on the cold, hard floor. He immediately drew in his knees and closed his eyes, not daring to get up. He knew where he was. This was inside his soul, where Bane usually was. He sat for what seemed an eternity, listening to Bane as he rampaged through the facility. He was hurting so many of Silas's friends. He was the single worst thing that had ever happened to Silas and they both knew it. He tried to fight Bane, like he'd done before, however, Bane was too strong. He was intent on razing the Facility to the ground, he wanted to make Silas pay for being weak and innocent. Silas did the only thing he could do. He attempted to cut off Bane's access to the core of their soul. That was where they got their strength from. He managed to blockade it for a while, but when he heard Miss Timber jump on top of him and taunt Bane, he knew he couldn't keep the barrier up for long. Bane smashed through his walls and easily gained access to their power. Then, just as Silas was sitting down and preparing for Bane to wear himself out, Bane materialized in front of him. "Hello Cry-las." Bane smirked. "I take it you can hear whats going on? I will murder them Silas. I will crush their bodies into dust and burn whatever remains. I will destroy them Silas. There's nothing you can do about it."

"Stop it!" Silas cried out, he tried to make himself seem loud and threatening, but his voice seemed so small within the cavernous space he and Bane were currently in. "Please! Stop... Don't hurt anyone..." Silas said, tears beginning to form in his eyes.

"Awww... poor baby." Bane taunted. "You gonna cry? Do something about it then. Hmm? If you don't, I will kill them, starting with her." Just then, a double of Sierra was brought into existence, swirling into being from the smoke all around them. "You and I are one in the same. I know what you think of her just the same as you do. Her barrier is almost down. It won't be long now." Bane said. Just then. Silas heard her.

"Silas i know you are there, please come out. You're stronger than him... maybe not in raw strength but in character. Whatever powers he has you have too, I know you're in there so just show yourself... Except you can't. I know why you're in there. It's because you are afraid, afraid of being alone, afraid to be something other than that cold hard machine. But you can be more, you can survive this."

Silas looked up, finally opening his eyes since Bane had taken over. "Go away..." Silas said. He had only whispered, but his voice was strong.

"What's that? Go away? Why you insolent little pup. What would you be without me? How would you have survived if it wasn't for me?" Bane shouted, almost accusingly.

"I said, 'Go Away.' I'm not going to let you hurt them." Silas said, now standing, his courage growing with every passing second. "I'm not going to let this continue any longer. Get out of here!" Silas yelled at Bane. "I won't let you do this anymore!" Silas said, getting stronger and stronger. In the darkness of their world, Silas was shining. He whole body seemed to light up as he stood his ground against Bane.

"Pathetic," Bane said, shaken but standing firm against the growing might of Silas's confidence. "This is it?" He chuckled nervously, "This is nothing! You're nothing! I am the stronger of the two of us!" Bane said, trying to believe it. "you will always be too weak for the power you hold. I'm the only one who can truly utilize it, you'll never be as strong as me!"

"There are different kinds of stregnth," Silas said. "However, reckless strength like yours, that has no purpose, is utterly worthless!" Silas finished, yelling as he said it. "Be gone!" He roared at Bane, jutting his hand out towards him as if to blast him away. At that, the light on his body finally broke free, running rampant through the darkness like it did whenever he managed to drive back Bane. Bane's shadowy form dissipated and Silas felt himself rocket upward, he looked up but had to sheild his eyes from the growing light until...

The Outside World


Silas's eyes snapped open. He was kneeling on the ground underneath Bane's summoned colossus. The white wolf from earlier appeared to be casting a spell that created a wall of ice. Silas stood, his brown eyes blazing, he raised his hand into the air and suddenly, the massive evil aura was swept up into his palm as if it were caught in a whirlpool, spinning and shrinking until it was gone from the world. Silas fell to his knees once again, drained from the effort and panting with exhaustion.

"I did it..." he whispered. Looking over to the others, who were hiding behind one of Sierra's shielding spells, "I really did it! I beat him!" Silas exclaimed, pure joy radiating from his face. His happiness wouldn't last. Silas looked around, he'd smelled... fire? The lobby was completely trashed, walls were broken, things were on fire, and worst of all, his friends were hurt. His expression immediately darkened. "Oh no..." he whispered, trailing off while he surveyed the damage. "Did he do this?" Silas asked, horrified at what Bane had done. "I'm sorry." He said, tears beginning to form in his eyes. "I'm so sorry everyone." Silas cupped his face in his hands and cried, his body shaking with the force of his sobs. "I'mb so sowwy..." he said. His words distorted from the tears streaming down his face and his running nose.

"I beat him!" Ouka melted away the ice shield and looked at the child named Silas. Such power from such a small child. She sighed and watched as the child began to cry. She felt bad that it was because of her this all happened. Ouka was weak from using such high powered magic and her earlier ordeal. However, there were fires in the building that need to be put out. Ouka did one last spell, she froze the whole room for a quick minute and put out the flames. "Well hope I did something right." She smiled. Finally she collapsed and her form reverted to that of a wolf.

As Silas just sat there, crying his eyes out, the world was moving around him. It almost appeared to be in slow motion. The wolf lady put out all the fires and Firvin took off. Silas managed to stop crying just long enough to nod at him before he left. Timber went over to the two men with swords to chat with them, but Silas couldn't hear what they were saying. There was a newcomer. A pale man named Stelian, who introduced himself to the group. Silas didn't pay much attention to him. There would be time for a meet and greet later, but now, all Silas felt like doing was crying. Helping out with the restoration could wait. Silas hardly even noticed Shard asking him if he was ok. Silas nodded and quietly said, "I'm Silas, I've been here my whole life. This place is my home, but Bane keeps wrecking it. I'm sorry, but could you please just let me be for a little bit. I don't feel like talking to anyone. right now." He didn't want to be rude, but he felt like if he continued to talk, not just to Shard, but to anyone, he'd just start crying again, and he'd finally stopped just then.

Then suddenly, time sped up around him again when he noticed Sierra staring at him. She broke the barrier around her and rushed over to Silas. "You did it!!" she exclaimed. She she leaned in and quickly kissed him on the cheek. "I knew you could." she whispered before standing up and walking over to the wolf. She went over and spoke to the wolf lady before yawning then going back over to the bar. The world slowed down again. Silas was in shock. He didn't even realized the implications of what had happened until a good minute after they did. She'd kissed him. Silas blushed bright red, his whole face lighting up.

Silas quickly stood, shrugging off his embarrassment. Obviously she'd meant nothing by it. It was a congratulatory gesture, nothing more. No matter how much Silas wanted it to be. Silas regained his composure before, standing up and walking off back to the quiet room where witches practiced magic. There was something he needed to do. However, once he got there, he realized what he'd forgotten. Silas's bag was still back at the bar. Tibbers, his spell book, and his notepad were all there. Back where Sierra was. What was he going to do? How could he face her immediately after what had just happened. Silas knew he had to go back though. He needed the book.

Silas walked back to the bar. There was his bag, right next to Sierra. Silas swallowed hard, blushing just a little bit before walking over to Sierra and his bag. He quietly grabbed the bag and turned right back around. He quickly mumbled, "Sorry, forgot my bag. I'll be off now," before turning right back around to head off to the Witch's practice room. Hopefully Sierra was too preoccupied and wouldn't try to talk to him. He didn't know if he could take it.

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."

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.

Finally, after much coaxing, kisses, hugs, and reassurances that Sierra would be ok, Silas managed to get her to come with him out into the lobby. WHen they finally got there, Silas was shocked at what he saw. Firvin had, apparently, just arrived in the main lobby. Further, he was... HOLDING HANDS WITH RILEY? 'Whoa...' Silas thought. 'Is everyone pairing up?' He was shocked. He thought the pair of them liked each other, he never expected it to have happened so suddenly. There were a few new faces, but Magiere was there, Stelian too, Ouka the white wolf, Timber, Shard, and Kalin were all there as well. SIlas looked around, slightly confused. The mood in the air was strange, like everyone was on edge. Then Firvin spoke, still holding hands with Riley. He was so confident, so poised, so ready to do what needed to be done. Silas was shocked. To see the normally jokester Firvin take on such a dramatic personality change, what could have sparked it? Glancing between him and Riley, Silas put two and two together. Riley was going because she owed the government and Firvin would go to protect her.

Silas was terrified, literally shaking in his boots. War? With real people? It was so different from the practice dummies in the Witch's spell room. Silas didn't know what to do. On one hand, how could he stand by and let others fight to defend him with their lives on the line and do nothing. He couldn't, he'd have to fight. But then again, how could he snuff out another person's life? How could he possibly kill someone? Silas was so distraught, he felt like he was being pulled apart. He felt the need to protect his friends, but could he end another's life to do so? He sidled closer to Sierra. "I don't like this." He said quietly, squeezing her hand. Finally, after a few more encouraging and empowering words, Firvin finished his speech. Silas was impressed. Despite his own reservations, he couldn't help but respect Firvin's confidence and preparedness. Silas was enamored with him, the way he stood tall, the way he called for action. It was breathtaking to scared little Silas. Was Firvin such a presence this whole time?

At that, a line formed, most everybody was agreeing to help. Silas shrunk back. He couldn't, how could he? The only one who had ever hurt anyone was Bane. Silas wouldn't hurt a fly. Bane was always the one pushing Silas, he was even doing it now, raging against Silas's barriers, trying to make him fight. Silas swallowed hard, sweat was beginning to form on his face. Bane was raging against him, fighting for dominance with every fiber of his being. Silas held him back with sheer force of will alone. 'Go away Bane. I won't let you hurt people.' Silas yelled at Bane, scolding him in their mind. 'Come on you wuss, those people are evil, they're attacking your home Silas, your HOME. Doesn't that mean anything to you?' Silas couldn't think of anything to say. Bane was right, but a life was still a life. Who was he to decide who should live and who should die? That was when he heard Sierra speak up.

"I will fight to protect my brothers and sisters, I will speak to my lord and ask him for help. The humans have got themselves into a mess... again. I suppose they should learn who really are the more powerful race." Silas felt his heart shatter. How could he stay home while his Sierra, his darling, sweet Sierra went off to war. What would he do, stay home? Watch the Facility till they got back? How could he possibly be content staying home while everyone he loved fought to protect each other. Silas felt his hand squeeze around his wand, whose tip shimmered for a moment in response to Silas's fighting spirit. Silas walked up to Firvin, his hand clecnhed tight around the handle of his wand. "I-I'll go too. I have to protect you. Besides, if Bane gives us that much trouble, imagine how much he'll give to our enemies." Silas said, fumbling at first, then slowly gaining confidence as he spoke.

As the members of the Facility stood and confirmed their agreement to join in the fight Riely looked up at Firvin and nodded. "Very well then. If everyone will take a seat at the main table I will begin the briefing." Once everyone had sat down Riely took her position at the head of the table. Taking a deep breath she steadied herself for what she was about to say. "We have been given three different missions each one playing into different strengths of our members." After another breath and an encouraging look from Firvin she continued. "The first mission focuses on stealth in Tokyo, Japan. This task would be best suited to our spell casters. The mission is to capture a High Value Target hiding somewhere within the city. No other information is given other than the target's name and this photo. I will be going with this group. Any who wish to follow with me wait here at the end of the meeting." She looked around trying to gauge the reaction of everyone.

"The second mission is best suited for our weres. It is an ambush in the deep forest of Brazil. It give a location and a description of the targets. After the ambush you are to search the area and destroy any remaining forces. Those interested in this mission will be meeting in the dining hall after the meeting. Timber I hope you can take the charge of this one." Again looking to gauge the reactions she took another deep breath and continued.

"The third mission is best suited for the Vampires or other night based creatures. It is a search and destroy/capture mission in an elaborate tunnel system under Central China. The mission is to clear the tunnel of any enemy forces and to destroy or capture any technology or weaponry. Those interested in this mission meet in the basement conference room." Having given out all of the missions Riely let out a sigh of relief. 'That was easier than I thought it would be. "I can't thank you all enough for agreeing to help with this war. If we do our part we will be rewarded. Watch each other's backs I want to see everyone returning in one piece. Now everyone go to the meeting area of your wanted mission. Decide on a leader and prepare to move. We leave tomorrow morning. Good luck everyone." With that Riely sat, more of collapsed, into her chair watching as everyone went to their meeting areas.

(OOC: You do not have to go on the suggested mission if you would rather do a different one show up to that meeting. However try to keep the teams even.)
