"Most mages rely too much on their magic, I rely too much on my martial arts. I hope to find the balance between the two one day."

0 · 666 views · located in The Azure Knights Guild Hall

a character in “Fairy Tail: The Azure Knights”, as played by NerdyWhiteChick

Description

Name: Jien Wudao (Very loosely translates to Sword Dance)

Age: 19

Gender: Male

Appearance:
Image
Jien has long brown hair and matching eyes. He keeps his hair tied up in a neat pony tail. He usually wears the outfit in the picture above. He's is decently tall at about 5' 10" and weights about 140lbs. He has a good amount of muscle from years of martial arts and magic training, but otherwise has a deceptively thin build. He has a tattoo of a Chinese dragon on his lower back.

Image
Here's a closer look at his face.

Color/Location of Stamp: Jien's stamp is light green in color, matching his top, and is on the palm of his right hand.

Personality: Jien is naturally serious and hard working. He is respectful and polite, also honest to a fault. He is very disciplined. He isn't afraid to admit his faults or the faults of others, making him come off as rude. But he's really a nice and friendly person. He prefers silence to the loud chaos that guilds tend to be, but still enjoys the company. He is a very simple and practical person. Once he's got his mind set to something, nothing will stop him from completing it, no matter how long it takes. He's also very patient and focused.


Magic: Jien's magic is called Chi, it comes from a center in his body. He can channel it through his body as raw energy or power. It also gives him slightly high healing rate than a normal person. And by slightly I mean he heals a day or two faster.

Signature Abilities:
- Dragon's Flight, named so because of the importance of the dragon. Jien channels Chi through and out his legs letting him jump high into the air.
- Force Palm, Jien channels Chi through and out his palm, into the body of his opponent. Done correctly it can cause major damage. Done incorrectly and it hurts Jien.
- Sword Dance, the ancient technique that Jien was named after. It is the legendary skill of his family. With it one creates a sword of pure Chi, it a deadly weapon that none have survived against. Jien cannot yet use this techinique, but knows how to use it. Not only does it take massive amounts of Chi, but it is also very hard to control.


Equipment: His sword, a magical item that can turn into an amulet, when it is that form he uses the red strings on the end of the hilt to tie it around his neck. When on jobs he carries around a bag with his money, medical supplies, and a few other important items.

History: Jien was born in a small Asian town. He lived in a large Chinese style home with his family, including people like cousins the like. For eight years he trained at his families' dojo, learning the ways of martial arts, swords, and magic. Along with things like dance, reading, writing, and social skills. All while he dodged his father's drunken wrath. His mother died giving birth to him and his father blamed him for it.

When he was eight, about a week away from being nine, after a paticularly brutal beating from his father. His uncle, on his father's side, a much kinder man that his father. He was more like a father to Jien than his real one. Took him away from his father. The two escaped into the night and lived in a nearby forest for about eight years. Jien continued training with his uncle and learned how to survive off the land. Once Jien was sixteen, his uncle returned to the town and Jien himself travelled to Hibiscus. After hearing that the army wasn't very keen on Chinese teachings, Jien decided to join the Azure Knights instead.

Fun Facts:
Jien loves pandas.
Jien refuses to drink alcholic beverages, his father was an addict and he doesn't want to be the same.
Jien is an expert in martial arts and prefers them to magic, but joined a guild because it gives more freedom than the army.

So begins...

"Cao!" Jien swore in Chinese as his latest attempt at Sword Dance ended in failure. It was one of the those times where it exploded in his face, causing a razor sharp blast of Chi to put a decent cut on his arm. He, the one who was famous in the guild for being able to sit still longer than a rock, was beginning to lose his patience.

This was how all his mornings started off, early and training. He had already finished his warm up, a set of forms designed to get the blood flowing, but not be too tiring. With a frustrated sigh, Jien gave up for the moment and went back inside his small, but nice, home. After bandaging his latest injury he did a few more forms. These ones more complicated and tiring that the ones before, they included many leaps, flying kicks, and moves that required near perfect balance.

This was just a light training session of Jien, he was planning on doing a job today so he didn't want to wear himself out too badly.

Morning routine finished, Jien tied his sword amulet around his neck, and grabbed his shoes and pack. He headed out on his way to the guild.

A little while later he made it to the guild, just in time to see Ryden face plant. No doubt Azura had been the cause. Jien had been in the guild for two years, he was no stranger to her wrath. Another guild member, Veronica was also there and was now talking to Ryden. Jien decided he would join them. He briefly thought about hiding his latest injury, only a few people knew about the Sword Dance technique so they just assumed that he trained as hard Ryden did. Which wasn't a lie. But he dimissed the thought, they'd find out sooner or later anyway. "Good morning you two." he said as he aproached them.

It never got old. Popping in one people when they least expected it, her high speed. Lily cackled deviously, tapping her fingers together like a classic villain as she thought of how to screw with Briar today. The night before, she interrupted him while he was changing into clothes to sleep in- God, his reaction was priceless! But how would she do it this time? It was a pretty tough question, since she had already done so much that she worried he'd get used to just expecting her to appear. She absently kicked a pebble as she paced around outside. It was morning, and well, everyone was probably meeting each other now to eat, right? At least, that's what she figured. Lily didn't really want to do that yet though.

She tossed her dagger into the air, tapping the hilt with her index finger as it went back down. She focused on an area high above her as she tapped it, and the dagger was sent at blinding speeds to it. Immediately afterwards, with her tongue primed on her lip, she tapped her shoulder and sent herself up to meet with the dagger, and caught it handily midair. A wave of satisfaction hit her as she sent herself just above the ground again, and landed feet first with elegant yet childish flair.

Man, it always feels so awesome to do that.

Lily figured it looked impressive, at least, and put the small dagger back into it's sheath at her waist, and wondered exactly how Briar was doing. But more than that, she was pretty damn hungry and wanted to eat something before her stomach started to growl and mewl for food. She bulleted herself into the air to get a better vantage point, before sending herself back into her room through the window, landing almost silently on the bed, where she absently changed into a skirt, threw shorts on underneath, and put on a sailor top, dumping her raggy nightgown onto Briar's head, covering his face.

Wait 'til he wakes up and sees it on him.

She hopped down the stairs a few at a time, smiling widely at everyone already there- the powerful slayer Ryden, the too serious sword guy Jien, and of course, ink girl Veronica. And why, why did Jien only say good morning to the other two? Lily was there too, even though she had only just arrived, of course.

"Jieeeen!" Lily whined lightly as she sent herself above a chair, landing neatly on it in a sitting position. "You didn't say good morning to me!" She puffed up the air in her cheeks, pushing out her bottom lip in a bit of a pout, and stuck her tongue out at the sword user. "C'mon, c'mon, say good morning to me!"

"Jien hates me, Ryden." She mumbled to the dragon slayer, overly exaggerating a shrug. "I'm all sad now."

While others spent their morning training, talking or trying in vain to stop from feeling like a truck ran them over, Lilliana had seated herself quite comfortably in the corner in the main hall of the grand construct that served as the Azure Knights' building of operations and friendly chatter.

Her mind wallowed in the fantasy that was carefully scribed in her latest literature. The girl only peeked out from her moment of peace and quiet to witness Ryden had once again received unwilling flying lessons from the guild master, and then came crashing to the boarded floor with such an impact that it nearly sent Lilliana flying herself.

Oh my...

Luckily the assurance that everything was fine, and that Ryden was not in need of her help, had settled the girl's racing heart.

“Calm down, Lilly.” She muttered, her eyes glancing over the scene for a second time, only calmly turning back to the pages littered with words once she was fully convinced the situation was in control. See? Ryden is just fine. Lilliana added mentally, a final sigh calming the poor girl's nerves.

“Now I'm lost!” Lilliana suddenly exclaimed out loud, slamming shut the book out of frustration and leaping down from the seat with her hands carefully pressing the book against her chest.

Funny how these kinds of situations were the norm, and how Lilliana still hadn't grown accustomed to let it sink in and call it another day at the guild.

A year and a bit had it been now, and everything she had heard or read about mage guilds was completely false. At least, the Azure Knights did not follow the usual format of a guild. They took on requests, sure. They were a group, yes. But it wasn't...

How does one put it...

A single finger tapped her chin. Formal. She concluded. That sounded about right, didn't it?

Her little musing had Lilliana chuckle for a moment. She didn't regret joining for a moment, as it was a nice contrast to the environment she grew up in for most of her life. Realising she had unintentionally approached the growing group of people centring Ryden, Lilliana shook her current thoughts away and greeted the others with a graceful bow.

“Good morning, Ryden. I hope Azura didn't punish you too harshly.” She looked at the towering dragon slayer, with a bit of a worry on her face, gasping briefly at the difference in height before smiling at him.

“Veronica. Jien. Good morning to you, too.” They, too, were greeted with a smile.

“And Lily.” Lilliana took the effort to greet her friend, or who she thought of as a good friend, with a graceful wave accompanied by an ever bigger smile than the others had received.

Veronica's comment had caught Ryden completely off guard. He started to mumble something that he was sure would probably make him sound like and idiot, but luckily, the arrival of the others saved him the embarrassment. He wasn't really sure why he thought that would be more embarrassing than the fact that he had just faceplanted from three stories up.

"Good morning everyone." He finally said, smiling at the group as he calmly finished wiping the dust from his face. "As you can see, our beloved Guild Master is in rare form today. I'd advise avoiding her until after noon. "


Noticing that Jien was injured, he placed a friendly hand on his shoulder. "I suppose It would be hypocritical of me to tell you to take it easy during your training sessions, but you should probably have Saphira take a look at that. I was hoping you'd like to join me on an A Rank job today. But I wouldn't feel comfortable knowing you were hurt. In any case, I'm going to see if I can find Briar. Meet me in the tavern in a couple of hours if you're interested."

With that, he nodded his head at each of his guild mates and started back towards the guild hall he had just gotten knocked off of.

A look of confusion was on Jien's face as Lilly came over and complained about him not saying hi. He did the only thing he knew how to do. He dipped his head and replied, "My apologies Lilina, I was unaware that you were here. Good morning."

He was overwhelmed by the sudden amount of people around him, but adjusted quickly. He silently listened to the others tease and greet each other, until he felt Ryden's hand on his shoulder. Whom he gave a nod to after the dragon slayer was finished speaking. Of course he was interested in an A rank job, he was always looking to further himself and that was the perfect way to see how far he had come in the past two years. He had never attempted one before, but believed that he was ready.

Though he was reluctant to ask Saphira about healing his injury. Because of the position the dragon held in Chinese culture, Jien didn't think it was right to ask one of them for help. He had high amounts of respect for them, even for than the guild master, almost seeing them as the gods they were in his culture. He constantly had to remind himself that they were not in fact dragons, but people just like himself. People who had the honor of being trained by a dragon, but people all the same.

With a small sigh, he toyed with the amulet around his neck, rubbing his finger along the still sharp edges of the sword. Something he always did when he was thinking. He decided that he would ask Saphira, but later, he thought it would best to say where he was. And spare the women who were with him having to be with Akio alone. Or more like, save Akio from the women.

Another sigh. As much as loved his guild, sometimes the more energetic members were exhausting.

The sword user looked baffled, almost a little afraid when responding to her complaint. Lily thought it was awesome; he was so frickin' easy to predict, it's ridiculous! "My apologies, Lilina." He said, dipping his head respectfully, letting Lily bask in the warm feeling she got from being respected by someone that much older than her, and she smirked cheekily at him. "I was unaware that you were here. Good morning."

"Heh." Lily patted him handily on the back. "Thank you for noticing me!" She said in a sweet-as-sugar voice, before feeling her hand grasped by none other than the other Lily, the freaking Princess. She was fun too, and the Vanruth loved screwing around with her, and using her to screw with others. Anyways, the Princess Lily gave an enthusiastic wave of the hand, and smiled brighter than she did for the others present, making Lilina feel the need to do something drastic. So she flipped her skirt in Princess Lily's face and hugged her tight, squealing "You're so cuddly, Lily! I wanna snuggle you all day long!"

Wonder how she'll react to that?"

After the spontaneous embrace, Lily laughed. "Fooled ya! I got shorts underneath!"

Where the heck was Briar? He still hadn't come down, and it irked her. More than anything, Lily wanted to know how he reacted to waking up with her gown draped neatly over his face. Embarrassed? Shocked? These sort of things are amazing to watch, especially in person. He was her favorite here, after all, having known each other a bit before he asked her to join. And hell yeah, she'd join. Free food, lots of exciting people to have fun with, and all she has to do is show off her magical skill to rack in the cash. An easy and ultimately enjoyable life, she figured. It made for a great deal.

"Veronica, why are you always so mean to me?" Lily overheard a separate conversation between the inky freak Veronica, and the annoying playboy, Akio. Once again, he was up to his old tricks, and Lily's ears perked as she thought of how to get in the womanizer's way. She hated men that preyed on woman like that, it was annoying and baseless. And in the end, the girls mena nothing to him, so why trust anything they say? A rare scowl crossed her face as she regarded the bow user. "I am nothing but a gentleman to everyone." The blonde man slicked his hair back, as if it made him look cooler.

Things escalated pretty quickly though, as the ink girl counterattacked Akio's flirting, and started with her rage mode again. Lily had to act fast now; a death in the guild, even if it was Akio, isn't fun at all.

An idea popped into Lily's head. Veronica obviously wasn't enjoying the attention, right? And Lily wanted to try and make the inky freak open up. So maybe one way to do that would be to get her away from the blonde pervert! Lily, a little smile on her face, rushed at Veronica in something between a tackle and a hug.

"Ronnie!" Lily exclaimed, happily. "Let's go somewhere else!"

She quickly sent herself, alongside Veronica, to the other side of the training field, away from the preying eyes of Akio, and regarded the older girl with a giggle, stretching her arms casually. "Saved ya." She made a peace sign and flashed a grin. "God, that Akio doesn't know when to quit!"

■ Armin Chariot Wells ■



The early mornings in Hisbiscus seemed to be Armin's favorite part of the day. It was calm, relaxing, with the townspeople just beginning to bustle around going about with their everyday routines. The blond boy let out a yawn from where he sat on the stairs in front of the large building where he'd rented an apartment six months ago. Sometimes he found it hard to believe that he'd been a member of the Azure Knights guild for that long. Most of the mages there had been there for much longer, but for Armin it was a great accomplishment for himself. He's even finished a bundle of C rank missions! Of course he had to pay rent some how, but that wasn't the point. To be able to go and see so many different places and to be helpful to people was more than enough reward for him.

"Right!" He said aloud to himself with a smile as he stood up. It was about time for him to get going. Chances were by now the other members of the guild were meeting up already.

He stretched his arms above his head as he began to walk, the sleeves of his long-sleeved blue shirt falling to his elbows for a brief moment before he brought his arms back to his sides. He'd have to pay rent again this month, better find a mission today.

■ ■ ■

It took the blond a little while before he neared the guild entrance. On the way there he found himself a little side-tracked when he came across a stand selling freshly baked sweet potatoes and he just couldn't resist buying a batch of them to share. With the brown bag gently held against his chest with his arms around the sack, he stopped when he noticed some of the members out front. Let's see...Veronica, Akio, Jien, and then Lilina and Lilly. Surprisingly enough it didn't look like there were any arguments going on, or at least not at the moment. That was a bit of a relief. "Good morning everyone!" He said with a cheery smile before holding the sack of warm potatoes out in front of him. "Is anybody hungry?"

As the snake wrapped around Akio neck he thought to him self " uh oh this isn't good". as he felt the air being squeezed out of him as she place the gun to his head Akio would do his best to smile "a...aawwww V..Ver..Veronica i thought we where mak....making some head way in.... our relationship".

He would laugh a little, he was sure this was only making it worst. He would never try and attack her to free him self so his only option was dumb luck and it couldn't come soon enough. as Lilina she would tackle Veronica Akio could feel the snake grip loosen as he fell to the ground gasping and nervous laughing knowing he very well could have died.

Akio would make it back to his feet he was tempted to ask if that was a no to Veronica ,but he had pushed his luck enough today. he would look around the main hall and see a few of the other he knew but they where either to young for him to hit on, or a guy. Akio let out a depressed sigh "o well i guess the other guild beauties are not here". He would look around and see Ryden and Jien he over heard them talk about a job he would shrug his shoulders "i wanted to team with one of the guild beauties, but i'm almost out of money so i can't really be picky in teammates."

he would walk over throw his arm over Ryden shoulder "yo guys!!! i couldn't help but over hear that you two are thinking about going on a job. so was i!!!! and i thought it would be even better if i joined up with you guys" akio would thrust his fist into the air "just think about it, we would make an awesome team.

Ryden you are the strong angry looking mysterious type" Akio would point to him as he says this and he would quick move over to Jien "and you are the level headed clam respectful one" and Akio would then point to him self "and i am the fun loving charismatic one" he would thrust out his fist yet again. "with out magical combination no enemy will be able to beat us. well this happens on one condition course" Akio would point to himself with his thumb " i get all the pretty girls" Akio would then laugh

"Oh wonderful," Saphira grumbled out loud as she peered under her bed.
This was the second time this week she had lost her favorite, and admittedly only, pair of boots. She had barley been at the Azure Guild for more than six months, and she had already misplaced her boots more times than she could count. Admittedly, it might help, if she didn't take them off so often. But Saphira couldn't help it. She hated the way that the boots constricted her feet, in the mountains, it was safer to walk without shoes than with. The rocky terrain around Vyaweck, her loving foster mother, had been rocky and steep, walking bare foot allowed you to get a better hold on the numerous rocks and boulders that jutted out from the earth, unless you liked plummeting fifty feet to your death on either side.
"Maybe I can ask the others!" she thought as a feeling of excitement and nerves bundled up in her stomach.
Normally, she would not do this, being alone in the mountains with her only company as a dragon, made Saphira uncomfortable in group situations, especially if it involved numerous people, and seeing as the guild members tended to appear in clusters, it was almost unavoidable. But she was getting desperate, she was hoping to take on a mission soon, instead of just healing duty.
A sudden burst of energy over took Saphira at the thought of spending more of her time healing others who had gotten back on missions of their own injured. As much as she loved helping others, she yearned for the knowledge and experience that went along with such tasks, after all, isn't that why she left her peaceful cave and came to this foreign society.
Taking a deep breath, she opened her window, and swung her legs over, looking down at the at least four story drop from her position. Without a moments hesitation, she pushed off from the ledge, and, with the help of a small tornado she had created beneath her, gently floated down to the ground below.
The second she felt her feet touch the ground, she took off into a full sprint. Her hair streamed behind her like a pale, auburn blaze. It didn't take her long before she had group in her sights. Slowing to a walk, she approached them, calming slightly at the sight of Ryden. She wasn't quite sure why, but the she felt a certain kind of kinsman-ship with the fellow dragon slayer, as if they had been friends since childhood, when in reality, she had only met him a few months ago.
"Hey guys, have you seen my bo..." Saphira stopped mid sentence as the smell of semi-fresh blood hit her nose.
Almost immediately, her eyes whipped towards Ryden, one who had always been known for practicing harder than he should have, and then not coming for treatment. But, she saw no blood nor his usual attempts in fixing his wounds.
"Then that means..." her eyes focused on the dark red stain he sported on his elbow.
At that moment, any type of shyness she had left her immediately as she marched directly up to Jien.
"Why didn't you tell me you were injured Jien?" her brow furrowed into one of concern and worry for her fellow guild member.

Tatsou stretched as he woke. He looked around his one room house making sure everything was where he'd left it. Yawning he stood slowly and started getting ready for the day. 'Gah I need to get a job today I'm running out of money and rent's gonna be due soon plus I'm really hungry. He mentally berated himself for putting off work for so long. Once he got himself dressed he swung his sword over his back. It wasn't a normal sword. It had been given to him by Adalinda. The blade was made out of a rare steel that she'd heated and forged herself. The sword was without a doubt his most treasured possession.

He moaned and groaned as he walked his way out of his house quickly picking up the pace as he went. "I need to get there before all the interesting jobs are taken." He continued running until he was able to see the guild hall. He slowed his pace as he noticed the crowd of people gathered in the main yard. "Their all there... Should this be when I go and try to fit in..." He took a deep breath and started walking towards the group eventually ending up just on the outside of the group. He didn't speak up having already done better than he'd expected. 'I'm here if they don't notice me they don't notice me I'm at least here with the group.'

After a while the group disbursed and started looking for jobs. 'Hmm I guess everyone's running short on money. I hope there's still a good job by the time I get up there.' While he waited for the board to clear he want over to the kitchen and grabbed a rather large plate of food and headed over to an empty table.. "At least I'll be able to eat before I leave for my mission." He took a small bite enjoying the taste before it got to be to much. After just a moment he started shoveling the food into his mouth as quickly as he could without choking himself. As he hate his thoughts continued running back to his guild mates. He sighed softly pausing his feeding frenzy. "I wonder why I have such a hard time with people. It'd be so much easier if someone came to sit with me."

Sometimes the chaos at the guild overwhelmed Jien, this was one of those times. Many things were happening at one time. Both Lilly's were being... Well themselves. Veronica was trying to kill Akio. Granted it was all normal, he just didn't like it when it all happened at once. He was relieved when Saphira walked up to him. "Why didn't you tell me you were injured Jien?"

"You weren't here." Was Jien's blunt and honest reply, then after a moment of thought added, "Would you mind healing it? I'll be going on a job with Ryden in a few hours."

He didn't think that it would slow himself down, he had fought through much worse. Even as a child. He wondered what the other guild members would think if they knew that the injuries he showed up with were, technically, self inflicted. Not just normal training injuries, but ones that he had given himself, with his own magic.

So far the only ones who knew about the legendary skill of his family was Saphira, as she was the one who always patched him up, Ryden and Veronica, since they were his partners, and Azura. But he planned on tell the others at some point. Once he mastered the technique that is.

Unless they asked where he was getting his injuries from, Jien was a terrible liar.

Rayne squirmed in her bed as sunlight filtered in through her window. Her eyes fluttered open and were greeted with the bright orange glow that filled the room. Sliding out of bed, she walked over to the bathroom and took a shower. She let the hot water run down her body, relaxing her muscles. Hot showers always made her sleepy, though that was far from what she needed in the morning. There was steam curling around the room and the mirrors were fogged by the time she turned off the water and stepped out. She quickly got dressed, and ran a quick brush through her long hair.

She descended the stairs, and her eyes met the usual chaotic sight of the guild members. Even so early in the morning, the guild was never quiet. Though the hectic atmosphere that was permanently at the guild was annoying at times, it was probably the best part. No matter how many arguments people got in, or how bad things got, everyone was always together in the end. People were milling around and conversing, and a hefty crowd was gathered around the missions board. 'Hmm, I should look at that later, haven't done a mission in a few days.' She sauntered over to a relatively empty table and sat down. Tatsou was seated across from her, occupied by the food on his plate. "Hey," she greeted quietly with a smile. Tatsou was quite similar to her, they both didn't speak to people very often.

She tucked a few strands of her dark hair behind her ear and rubbed her eyes. She was still sleepy and quite drowsy; she needed to do something to wake herself up. Her stomach rumbled lightly, and she clutched it in embarrassment. She looked towards the kitchen, and saw Briar with Armin on his shoulder, dragging Veronica with him. "Looks like my stomach is talking to me, I should go get something to eat," she said, and excused herself. She quickly headed to the kitchen as hunger gnawed at her.

She heard the a laugh ring out near her, and she turned to see it belonged to Akio. He was with Ryden and Jien, who seemed to be helped by Sapphire. As she passed them, she sent them a friendly smile and wave.

Veronica merely watched the scene between Briar and Ryden with mild interest. Her eyes widening slightly as Ryden put Briar into a headlock ~I don't understand these men at all. How does violence equal friendship~ she thought with amusement as the redhaired man was brutally lectured by Ryden on the qualities of training. Shaking her head slightly, a faint smile on her face at the antics of them.

She glanced at the two Lilys' wondering how they would react now that their muscle on the team was dragged away from them. Although knowing Lillian, she would cause antics to piss off Ryden and then use Princess as a peace agreement. Or at least thats what Veronica would have done if she was in their place. Still the puppy was a troublemaker and it wasn't even near noon. Deciding it would be best to stay out of the way planning she walked over to the quieter location where Saphira and Jian were sitting. From the looks of their expressions Saphira was motherhenning Jian on his training techniques. The kid did push himself a bit too far sometimes, but on the other hand Saphira needed to lighten up a little bit on the mothering.


"Saphira, I think you don't really understand Jien's training methods. His determination seems to be his driving force. I don't he minds a few nicks and bruises every time he makes a mistake. I think that is a wonderful way of learning. Am I right Jien?" She asked quietly, trying to be neutral in the event that it could turn into an argument. Although Saphria was a Dragon Slayer. she seemed to have none of legendary temper bestowed on the magic users.

Saphira smiled at Veronica, sensing Veronica's slight annoyance at Saphira's over motherly ways, "I have nothing against getting a little scraped up when one trains, it's a part of the process and in the end will make you stronger, it's the fact that no one ever comes to me for healing after the fact."
She lowered her head, the sense of uselessness swept over her like an unwelcomed storm. She hated that feeling. It was the same feeling she had felt everyday as she watched her friends come and go from missions, fulfilling their sense of purpose that seemed to always surround them, while Saphira sat in the infirmary wing, continuing just to be a burden to the guild. She had longed to go out on missions, but was far to shy to ask any of these still somewhat unfamiliar faces if she could team up with them. Her saddened blue eyes turned back to Veronica, "I hate seeing all of you walk around injured. It breaks my heart to know that my fellow guild members are in pain and think so little of me that they do not even bother to stop by and ask the burden of the guild if she could heal their wounds," Saphira paused, she had revealed more of her feelings than she wished to, or had ever done with anyone else.
With a shake of her head, she turned her attention back to Jien, Saphira stepped closer to Jien, her bare feet barley making any noise against the ground beneath her. This wasn't the first time she would have to heal one of his training injury's and she did not expect it to be the last. She just wished that he wouldn't be so hesitant to seek her out whenever he was injured, instead of her having to see the blood soaked skin around the injury. A shiver went down her spine at the thought of Jien walking around, or magic forbid, go on a mission with an his injured arm.
Closing her eyes, Saphira tapping into the magic, just as Vyaweck had taught her how so many years ago. A warm, tingling sensation pulsed with every beat that her heart took, as the magic formed in her body. Breathing deeply, she focused the sensation into her hands. Opening her eyes once more, Saphira carefully leaned in closer, allowing for a better look at the cut. While it wasn't anything life threatening, it was a pretty decent cut. Saphira's heart dropped at the sight of the wound, silently wishing herself that the young man had come to her sooner. Placing her now glowing blue hands gently on the wound, she pushed some of the magic from her hands and into Jien's cut. Saphira smiled slightly as she felt the skin knit back together quickly, happy that her magic was helping a person who she cared for. When the cut had healed, Saphira expertly severed the magic link to her hands, and dropped them to her side.
"All done," she smiled at Jien, the way she did to all of her patients after a healing session. "have fun on your mission with Ryden....which reminds me, I need to go see if there are any missions still available. Goodbye guys, and Jien, please don't hesitate to come and see me if you are injured again."
Pivoting on her heel, she began to walk off to the guild to check to see any current missions. She was barley a few inches away from Akio and Rayne, when she heard "we will be the Azure Knights greatest team,"
screamed into her ear.
Saphira felt her heart jump at the sound and volume of Akio's voice. She whipped her head towards the loud boy, when, suddenly she felt her foot slip out from under her. Saphira was on the ground in a second, her palms tingling, though whether from the fact that she just used healing or the fact that she had used them so that she didn't do a face plant, was a mystery even to Saphira.
"Not again," Saphira sighed as she once again found herself face to face with the floor.

As Saphira wandered away..and ended up nearly face planting on the floor due the shock from Akio's loud voice. Shaking her head wearily she glanced at Jien newly healed shoulder and asked "So what exactly where you doing when you injured yourself? Don't you think it would be wiser to have one of the more experienced members observe you before you end loosing a limb doing some fancy swordsmanship? I am sure Briar or Ryden would be willing to..". Her voice sounded neutral at first, but bits of worry crept into it as she began to imagine much worse scenarios happening."


In truth, she did worry when Jien got flashy with his swordplay..even more dangerous when he mixed his own style of magic into it. Cocking her head to the side with a slight smile on her face she asked softly "Speaking of training..I haven't had the chance to spar with you yet have I? Would mind training with me today? At least before your job today..". Her tone was hesitant as if she was worried about getting rejected..even by one of her teammates. She was interested in seeing his magic, maybe getting to know him a bit better. ~Although hopefully Brian and Ryden haven not destroyed the training area yet..~

Rayne was suddenly bombarded by Akio, who started following her around like a puppy. Hello Rayne! Even sooooo early in the morning you still look stunning as always". At that she smiled, replying with a kind, "Good morning, Akio." she made sure not to get wrapped up in his compliments, which he doled out to all the girls daily. "You know what I have thought about? We have never really spend any time with each other, and I was thinking we should go on a job together. Just think about it with my light magic and your shadow magic we will be an unstoppable team!!!!" she paused to think about that for a moment. Their magic powers combined would be a very interesting combination. She was about to reply, when Sapphira somehow face planted right next to them.

Akio reached down before she could react, and helped her up. He had already forgotten about his quest to team up with Rayne for a job, and was now asking Sapphira. He was slathering compliments on her as well, and it seemed to be working. Oh well, at least Akio seemed to be a good person at heart. With an amused smile, she left the two to their conversation, and went to go get food. She piled her plate high and returned to the hall. As she passed by the mission board, her eyes quickly scanned over the available jobs. They were mostly C-class jobs, a few B-class, A-class, and S-class. Her gaze caught the flyer of two SS-class jobs, and she grinned. One day, she would get stronger and complete SS-class missions.

As she went over to a table, she caught sight of Veronica and Jien, wondering what the two were up to. Her thoughts were interrupted as she sat down once more with Tatsou, and saw that Armin was there was well. "Ah, good morning Armin," she greeted with a smile. She began eating, enjoying the food on her plate. "So, what are you two up to this morning?

Golem


A young child walked slowly, boots hitting the floor with a scuffing the cobblestoned road. No one noticed the child go about her business seeing as she made sure not to bring attention to herself. The sounds of wheels clacking every time it went over one of the many stones that made up the road made a steady rhythm to walk by.

She had been walking for over an hour now and surprisingly enough not many people wondered why she was traveling along and without her parents. Not that she had any and the closest person se could call family had passed away a few weeks ago. She wasn’t really sad about it nor could she really express it with words. It wasn’t a physical thing that she could see so she didn’t believe one could actually feel sad or even feel the emotion if it didn’t exist.

Blinking once or twice, her bright orange eyes disappeared with each blink. Taking in everything that she saw, Golem wasn’t used to all this hustle and bustle. When she was with Nana they usually didn’t venture past the white fence Nana had built a long time ago. So she really didn’t know much about the world beyond that white little fence. Golem did however know of the Azure Knights, ever since she was little she had dreamed of being part of Ebels greatest guild and become the best mage she could be.

With Nana’s approval of course otherwise she would still be living in the small cottage. Though it was lonely without her; not having someone to interact with. The steady rhythm of the wheels on her suitcase made her quite sleepy but she was determined to get to the guild before she let herself go to sleep.

Unfortunately that resolve didn’t last very long as in a couple more steps Golem’s eyes were closed. Thankfully she had been walking in the right direction of the guild so when she got to the doors she walked right inside. All one would hear were the sounds of boots hitting the floor in an almost shuffling manner. Golem continued to walk until she finally hit the bar counter. With a thud she fell on her bum, her eyes snapped open glancing around.

With a sleepy look Golem rubbed her head pouting a bit at having walked right into the counter. She got up rubbing her bottom as she picked up the handle of her suitcase. With her jacket being large and all most people thought her a boy at first sight and these fellows were no exception to this unless they were sharp enough to realize that she was indeed a girl.

Golem looked around her pouted turned into a yawn and she walked over to the nearest seat and plopped herself right on down. Not caring if the table was occupied or not. Her face rested flat on the table, her arms dangling at her sides as she went right back to sleep. A small snot bubble formed at the end of her nose which grew bigger then smaller with each intake of air and release of air from her lungs.
