Description

Lilina Vanruth




Image



Age:
"Well, it's not as if I look very old..."
13

Gender:
"Gee, I know I don't have curves, but that was just mean!"
Female

Appearance:
"Idiot, can't you tell by lookin' at me?
With a pretty tiny figure, even for her age, Lily stands at about 4'7" and somewhere on the border of 95 lbs. Her hair is pretty short, only reaching the top of the neck in back, and it's poofy, giving her a bit more of a childish look, to her ire. Her hair itself, strangely enough, is a light blue color. Her body lacks the curves she wishes she had, not even considering that she's just barely hit puberty and has many years to grow, hopefully. She also tends to have fangs for teeth when she talks and smiles, most likely due to the fact that she hasn't lost all her baby teeth yet.

Color/Location of Stamp:
"Right here, above my belly button! It's the same color as my hair, too!

Personality:
"Guess I'll try to sum myself up with words, huh?"
Lilina is your typical energetic, playful girl. She loves to have fun and show off her strengths to anyone that can praise her, making her pretty manipulative and vain at the same time. She's pretty impulsive, and honestly lacks some common sense, but it's easy for her to brighten someone's day if she thinks she can gain something from it, of course. Lily's fun and easy to talk to, and is one of the best actors around. She also loves to fight, seeing it as one of the only times she doesn't have to act in order to get the things she wants- in a fight, it's all about who's stronger. And surprising for her size and age, Lily's a pretty tough competitor.

On a more negative note, Lily's very insecure when it comes to things about herself. She doesn't know how to not lie a lot of the times, even when she doesn't want to at all. She also has a lot of trouble when it comes to trust, always wondering if they might be lying to her about something. Because of this, while it's easy to get to befriend, actually gaining her genuine love and trust is a more difficult task. She secretly wants someone to be able to get that intimate with her, but Lily doesn't know how to just let them in without testing them and manipulating them the whole time.

Magic:
"If I had a name for it, uh, the 'Movement Mage?'"
Lilina's magic is to be able to move any object she's touching, including herself, at almost instant movement to any area within her line of sight. It's not the same as teleportation, since the objects still have to travel the distance, making her generally weak to barriers and other defensive skills. Since it doesn't take much energy, Lilina can use this many times without tiring herself out. The innate nature of this magic, however, is pretty dangerous, as if she uses it too close to other types of magic, it can create a reaction, usually resulting in a massive explosion. Can be weaponized once she's stronger, for combo attacks.

Signature Abilities:
Lilina Bullet!
Lilina can use her magic on herself, sending her at intense speeds to a location within her sight. It's especially effective when she's holding her dagger, for an almost uncounterable attack.

Team Attack!
When teamed up with other mages, Lilina can speed up their magic, if it's something that needs to be charged, or have it shot at the enemy faster than it normally would go. The power of this, obviously, is dependent on whoever she's teamed up with at the time.

Chaotic Moon!
An incredibly dangerous move, since until she's even faster, she'll probably die when using it. If she uses Lilina Bullet too close to other types of volatile magic, it'll cause a widespread explosion for massive damage. She prefers to pretend she can't do this, honestly.

Equipment:
-Lilina has a small dagger she uses to fight with.
-A deerskin pouch full of random snacks to eat during the day.

History:
Lilina was born to a servant girl, working under a generally womanizing Lord. It was common knowledge that the servant girl was one of the Lord's concubines, but no one would publicly acknowledge it. When she was born, well, she and her servant mother were forced out of the palace by some of the Lord's relatives, saying that her existence would harm the status of her half-sibling as the Heir to the palace. Still, they adapted, with the mother trying to make a life as a gardener, and Lily picking up begging from some of the local kids her age, who also had trouble just having enough to eat day by day. It was competitive, though, and Lily found herself needing to resort to more lies and more acting each time in order to gain the sympathy needed for food.

Eventually, though, her mother would get killed during an attack, and she'd end up entirely on her own. When escaping from slavers who saw the lone girl as an opportunity, this is when Lilina discovered her magic- at twelve years old, and successfully got away with her freedom intact. She took the chance to escape from the town, wanting to get away from the place full of memories of her loving mother; and on the road, her measly attempt at banditry managed to impress a travelling man, Briar Cousland, who took pity on her and trusted her pretty quickly from the start. She saw him as primarily a friend, but also as someone she could live off of for some time, and together they ended up joining the Azure Knights Guild.

So begins...

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.

A faint cheshire grin appeared on Veronica's face as she watched Ryden attempt to figure out a decent reply without offending the aging female population with an unwise comment. ~For one so powerful a mage, he is not exactly the smoothest speaker..especially with women~ she thought with amusement as Ryden changed the subject to Jien's injury. Those two were always getting hurt from pushing their bodies too far. A faint sigh escaped her as she heard the antics of the over-dramatic Lily began her morning pouting session, well at least there was some consistency. Nodding her head towards Lilianna as her form of greeting, before visibly cringing as her name was shouted across the hall

"Veronica!"


Nearly joining the facepalming session with Ryden as she glanced out of the corner of her eye seeing a familiar blonde bounce through the door. Already feeling her blood pressure rise as the angelic boy began nearing her area. With a low hiss in her voice she snapped "You should know it would be wise to keep that mouth of yours shut. Unless you are being well-mannered and polite today, then keep your distance." Her ink fluxed around her arms before resembling that of a large venomous snake on both sides of her forearms..ready to strike at any given moment.

With a look of desperation on her face she mumbled quietly "Please save me from the blonde menace...". Her cold red eyes stared directly at Ryden as if she hoped that he would cause a distraction long enough for her to find a suitable hiding place.

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?"

"Hm?" Briar's eyes slowly opened and his eyebrows began to rise as he realized he still couldn't see anything. At first, he thought it was still night, but knew that wasn't the case when a tendril of light broke through as whatever was on his face shifted. Plucking the cloth off in a tired motion, he stared at it as it drifted slowly to the floor. "A nightgown?"

'Lili...'

There was no doubt in his mind who the article of clothing belonged to. The young girl was no doubt hiding in one of the many shadows still draping the room, waiting for him to freak out. 'Sorry Lili, not today...' It had been a long night, and any sort of extravagant reaction was beyond Briar's physical capabilities this particular morning. Instead, he grumbled a curse at the light streaming in through the window before swinging his feet down to the cold floor. "Yaaarrrgghh!" The yawn seemed to echo around the room as he stretched before rising to his feet. If he could stay in bed all day, he would. But there were things to punch, and food to eat out there. And right now, the later of the two was his primary concern as his stomach so admirably reminded him.

Throwing on his boots and tucking his pants into them, he tossed on his black, coat-like shroud over his bare shoulders and headed out the door, casting one last glance behind him in an attempt to locate the thirteen year old trouble maker. When he failed to do so, he descended the stairs of the guild and headed toward the main hall. The sounds reached him before the actual sight of the other members in the guild, and for a moment, his hunger was put on hold.

"Who turned on the sun?" Briar said walking up and leaning against the door frame to the guildhall as he shaded his eyes in the bright morning sun.

“Eh,”

Lilliana had a mini heart-attack when she felt the sudden, inappropriate, embrace from her almost name-twin. Her composure struggled to assume a decent position, while Lilina fully enjoyed the reactions to her sudden indecent course of action.

Cheeks flushed a deep shade of red, and Lilliana couldn't wish for a better moment that the ground would open up beneath her and swallow her whole to save herself the embarrassment of this very moment.

“Fooled ya! I got shorts underneath!”

Once again her brown beads caught sight of Lily the second, still happily enjoying the reaction on Lilliana's face.

“Ah...” The girl stammered, her hands gripping tightly around the book she carried. “Y-you can't just...” But Lilina had already left the scene to assist Veronica in a desperate escape from the terrifying Akio and his horrid flirty one-liners.

Though that wasn't what had caught her attention, and Lilliana doubted that anything could do that as well as... he could.

Her eyes beamed with joy at the arrival of the blond boy brandishing a smile that melted her weak little heart.

Armin...

Oh how she was glad to see him in all his fluffy and adorable glor- Wait, he hadn't seen that little display just now, had he? Oh no, the horror! What wouldn't he think of her! This day can't get any worse now!

Swallowing the fictional lump that was stuck in her throat and kept her from breathing properly, Lilliana briefly retorted with, “N-No, I g-got to go.” and scurried out of the room with her reddened face hidden carefully behind a book.

She only stopped running when she was just about out of breath, her feet touching the soft and grassy touch of... grass. Lilliana let out a flux of air as she slowly walked further and further out onto the backyard, the gentle breeze swaying her long, brown dress around her legs. The scarf draped around her neck dancing alongside it in perfect rhythm.

“Oh no!” Lilliana pressed her hands against her face, dropping her luggage onto the ground as her face expressed pure shock. Pure, horrific shock. I completely waved him off like he was some insignificant delivery boy! Stupid, stupid, stupid! As her nerve-endings began scolding the little princess one after one, she herself began twirling around in the hopes someone would tell her this was just a dream and she'd wake up in her bed without a single worry.

“Oh dear, what do I do?!” She exclaimed, reaching down for her book and slowly walking around the guild's backyard, slash training field, slash whatever. Not really noticing anyone, since her mind was far too busy with trying to avert a crisis of unimaginable proportions that needed immediate fixing.

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

Within a span of ten seconds away from getting rid of the blonde menace with single shot to the head. Her chance was taken away as the room suddenly changed and she felt her body suddenly be clung onto.. by Liliana.Her eyes glanced down wearily only to have her eardrums ruptured by a shrill voice. Slowly detaching the clingy girl from her body with her hands before muttering "Yes, he can be a handful. Umm thank you for rescuing me?". Her voice was unsure as she stood to her feet, eager to not become the kid's personal slingshot again. With a snap of her fingers the waiting snake around Aniko's laughing body faded. Shaking her head in annoyance she scowled "You were lucky this time you ass."


Carefully making her way over to the quieter guild door were a sleepily looking Briar and eager Armin with food in his arms. Her foul mood brightened slightly at the sight of the boy's ever present smile before she said "Trying to fatten us up again Armin? I swear you always are concerned for the welfare of others. That's a rare sight these days." Her warm tone went several degrees colder as she jabbed her finger at Briar before pointing in the direction of the ever hyper Liliana "Oh by the way you must of accidentally let your puppy out...try to make sure it doesn't happen again.". What she should of said was while you were off your hangover..your little roommate used me for her amusement, why don't you have any type of control over her!

That would be rude though..a faint smirk appeared on her face as she asked "So who drank you under the table last night, or were you up trying keep your charge out trouble. You look exhausted still". Her ink seemed to be concentrating around her Guild stamp forming almost a net like material over her chest. It was a easy way to make the dark violet dress seem to be a bit fancier, who would of thought that such a simple change would make something better.

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."

'Puppy...?' Briar thought at the remark from Veronica as she approached and pointed an accusing finger at him and over to Lilina in turn. 'That girl is anything but a puppy, 'demon' would be more accurate.' He chuckled as the thought forced its way into his mind and he involuntarily scratched his head, ruffling the fiery crop of hair.

Pinching the bridge of his nose, he focused his eyes once more as he found himself staring at the odd swirls of ink on her dress than at her face. It was far too early in the morning for these kind of illusions and he was having a bit of trouble actually hearing what she was saying, mostly due to the distraction of her dress. "Hey," he said, spreading his arms in a defensive gesture, "Lily's old enough to do stuff without me holding her hand at every turn. Besides..." His tone changed suddenly to a slightly playful one, "if I'm really going to be the babysitter and upstanding individual in this guild, I think we're all screwed!"

The burst of laughter that followed at his own joke was a combination of early morning giddiness and a slight influence of his hangover. Truth be told, he really didn't remember what he had done last night that was making him so tired this morning. And that usually equated to a large sum of alcohol in almost every case. "In any case," he started as his eyes locked on the bag of potatoes Armin was carrying, "who cares what I did last night? I'm more concerned for what I'm going to eat today!"

Without warning, Briar was wide awake and launched himself at the young, golden-haired boy. In one smooth motion, he scooped up the youth and hefted Armin over his should with incredible ease. "C'mon, I'm starving!" He said in a rush of words as he snatched Veronica's hand and drug her along with them as he sped off. Armin slung over his shoulder, and Veronica being drug behind, Briar bounded through the guild passing the others huddled around the mission boards as he did so.

Subtlety wasn't always his strong suit...

■ Armin Chariot Wells ■



Ah...there goes Lilliana. Armin watched her run off rather quickly without saying much and he blinked in confusion. With his arrival were there just too many people around for her? Maybe she just didn't like sweet potatoes.

"Trying to fatten us up again Armin? I swear you always are concerned for the welfare of others. That's a rare sight these days." Veronica had said to him and he let himself focus on that rather than the reason why Lilly disappeared.

"I couldn't pass up sweet potatoes!" He said with his usual little smile, bringing the brown bag back against his chest. Veronica had begun to lecture Briar, who'd come down not long after Armin showed up, now about something that must've happened while Armin wasn't around since he couldn't really figure out what she was talking about, but he stood there quietly listening anyway, giggling a little when Veronica called Lilina a 'puppy'. Now that he thought about it the small girl did sort of act like one, especially with Briar. A pair of ears and a tail would probably fit her, to be honest.

As Veronica and Briar talked Armin let his eyes move across the guild hall. It didn't look like everyone was here, but quite a few of them had already showed up, including Saphira who, before even finishing whatever she was going to ask them, went off to stand by Jien and the other two guys. As he was about to turn back to Veronica he stopped when he spotted Tatou. That's right, he'd passed them by not too long ago and was now eating...rather vigorously by himself.

"In any case, who cares what I did last night? I'm more concerned for what I'm going to eat today!"

Armin moved his eyes back in Briar's direction, tensing up a little once he noticed how intently the man was staring at the sack of potatoes in his arms. "O-oh, well I-" He began with a sheepish smile, only to have his sentence cut off when he found himself being picked up without warning. He let out a small yelp in surprise, quickly holding the bag up so the potatoes wouldn't get mushed as he was slung over Briar's shoulder.

"C'mon, I'm starving!"

"B-Briar-san! I'd rather you not carry me like a child!" He said in a sort of helpless tone. It wouldn't be much longer until Armin turned 17, yet he could still be picked up and thrown over someone's shoulder so easily. Something about that made the blond boy feel kind of small... Of course he was small, but still...

Armin let his arms relax as he held tight to the bag in his fingers and let out a sigh.

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.

Does she like her, that stunningly beautiful inky freak? Lilina guessed a probably no, but then again, the inky freak didn't really get along with anyone. What was she expecting though, a sudden life story flashback, explaining why ink freak was so antisocial and 'Holier than Thou' to everyone? Probably not, in hindsight, and all she really received was a simple thanks. Considering Tatsou, Princess Lilly, Rayne, Ink Freak... this guild is filled to the brim with the shy types that preferred not to talk to anyone else, putting the onus of 'space filling' to the more extroverted members. And Akio's version of filling the silence was almost universally viewed at with annoyance, at the very least, and blatant hatred, if you're an Ink Freak. In any case, the hyper Lily wasn't surprised at the lack of response, and the Inky Freak went to a quiet, calmer area. Briar was there, awake, and none the worse for wear, considering what he had on his face, and when Inky Freak pointed towards her, seemingly in exasperation, Lily waved at him and lifted her skirt, before winking, setting it down, and zooming away to a different place.

Why can't everyone be more like Princess Lilly? Her face when I shoved my shorts in her face... hilarious!

A guild full of Princes Lillies? Wouldn't that just be awesome? Full of people to play with, and to confuse others with. Especially with name switch game- that'd be a frickin' awesome blast then. Since everyone would be Lily or Lilly, and it would just be incredibly convoluted. Just how Lilina liked it, and she let out a little sigh before zooming up into the air; into a window; down a hall; to the Job Board, and looked at some of the missions.

What'd be good for the team? Maybe a Rank A job?

She shook her head, thoughtfully. Princess Lilly needed more training, and there's a chance that she'd get overwhelmed by the Rank A job, being too much for both Briar and Lily to cover her safely. Sure, the speedster loved taking on difficult jobs, and the glory of completing them. But, well, getting a teammate severely injured or killed really isn't on the menu. Especially not someone like Princess Lilly, who was more of a mascot than anything... there's no way she'd let her get hurt. Don't get her wrong, Lily still prioritized herself, it's just that, she'd protect the princess until she felt it was too dangerous for even herself, in which case she'd easily make an escape with everyone in hand. Simple, right?

Guess I gotta ask Her Majesty what she thinks she can handle.

Lily did a chain of bullets until reaching the training/courtyard once again, where most members were still conglomerated. Briar, Armin, and that ink freak were gone now, though. Probably to eat? Not like it really mattered, really, but once both Lillies had chosen a few potential jobs, it'd be good to ask Briar which one he thought was best. Because, why not? Lilina felt the itching she usually did when she really needed to go and beat the crap out of some enemies, so along with helping pay rend, a job really seemed awesome right then.

She spotted the Princess- alone near the back, for some strange reason. Lilina shrugged as she zoomed herself right next to Lilliana- it just made things a little more convenient, that's all.

"Hey, hey." She said, grinning, and grabbing the Princess by the shoulder. "Help me pick out some jobs to show Briar, ne?"

And, well, just in case the Princess was put off by the last joke, she crossed her fingers in front of her and winked, saying, "And I'm sorry for the hug! I'll never hug you again, you cuddly thing!"

"I- uh..." Liliana tried to say, but the hyperactive Lily put her finger on her lips, almost shushing her with a sneaky glint of the eye.

With that, the two Lillies were almost instantly transported to the job board, where hopefully the Princess wasn't too disoriented by the sudden speed and stops. Lilina herself eyed the requests, seriously trying to think of something that'd work for the three of them. Hard enough for Briar and Lilina, without being too much for the Princess, here. One Rank B job particularly caught Lily's eye, and she looked at it.

"Daughter kidnapped by bandits..." Lily murmured. "Interesting. Whaddya think?"

Lilliana wasn't given much of a choice, was she? Not that she ever had one when her exact counterpart was the one giving these arbitrary options that were all false, except for the one that she had sneakily left out to play as the 'Yeah that's cool, but we're doing it my way anyway!' card.

And that was classic Lilina. Forcibly rushed, and unable to take no for an answer to any question ever. Feeling the other Lily's hand taking hold of her tensed shoulder, Lilliana felt herself being pulled by some, for a lack of a better word, magical force that zigzagged her all the way to the mission board that stood silently in it's never-changing spot in the guild's general meeting area, awaiting for anxious mages to take the intriguing merchandise it had to offer.

That... dreaded board Lilliana was always too afraid to approach. She had only seen it twice or so up close, and even now it seemed much bigger than it had been those other times. Parchments were hastily pinned to the wooden board, a sort of 'half-assed' job that forced everyone took move a paper or two if they wanted to read a request that had been obscured by three or four other requests.

Blinking, Lilliana revoked her usual, calm non-stressful composure – Of course after holding her head to lift the spinning feeling from Lilina's magic. I'll never get used to that. She thought momentarily before bringing her attention back to her friend's abrupt comment on a certain request.

“I-” Lilliana tapped her cheek with a single, pale finger. “How about-” A much simpler request caught the princess' attention. Missing puppy, it read. That sounded reasonable, and far less dangerous than what Lilina had, subtly, hinted at.

But I can't force Lily and Mister Briar to do such trivial requests...

“No, no... That won't do.” The girl whispered to herself under a feigned sigh, her eyes darting back hesitantly to the paper that requested a child to be rescued from bandits. “I can do that, can't I?” Lilliana didn't believe her own words, but if that's what they wanted...

With a long pause ensuing between the two Lillies, Lilliana finally broke from her musing and twirled around to face her friend and team-mate. Her dress gracefully whirling around her before she began speaking, hands still clinging onto the piece of literature.

“I-I think,” She began, hiding her nerves as best as she could with a forced smile. “That's a-a fine pick, Lily.” Her feet inched – or rather, shook closer towards to board as eyes pretended to read the B rank mission.

“L-Let's go tell Mister Briar!” Lilliana finished rather hastily, flashing another smile at her friend.

Well, that was kind of a surprise. Princess Lilly was actually going along with it? As Lily scrutinized her somewhat shaking, nervous friend, she figured that maybe the Princess just felt like stepping up a bit. Maybe to challenge herself. Still, Lily figured the Princess to be more for missions like "Do a dramatic reading for a play for the school children!", or perhaps "Teach religious values into my husband!". And yes, she scoffed when seeing requests like that. Seriously, the only cool jobs are the combat ones; those are the ones will all th glory and the danger. None of the others matter. Another question is why turn to a guild for the religious values request. Why not just ask some religious institute? Wouldn't that make more sense? Honestly, some people. Ridiculous, Lily thought.

Lily smirked at her friend; her name-twin, and with a little knowing smile, tapped the Princess on the head, before sending the pair speeding through the halls again until they almost crashed into Armin, hooked by the arm to Briar, with Veronica behind him. It would have been awesome if it wasn't so awkward- and there was a tense silence as Lily picked herself up off of the floor, rubbing her head irritably.

Right, right. Cute face, go!

"Ah, sorry!" She said in a honeyed voice. "I made a little oopsie, haha!"

Okay, what the hell's going on between Wells and Lilly, anyways?

Only an idiot could have missed somehow that the once close Armin and Lilly were more distant now, mostly on the Princess' fault. And, well, since Lilina definitely wasn't an idiot, of course she'd have noticed it. So like any good, doting friend, Lily used her magic to send the Princess knocking into the moral center of the guild, the plant boy, struggling not to laugh.

"Heh, whoops!" Lily exclaimed, and then turned specifically to Briar. "Yo, anyways, Briar. We got a job- save the kidnapped daughter of blah blah town." She laughed nonchalantly, and continued. "It's Rank B, so the two of us should be able to handle it while Princess here," Jutting a thumb at the girl, "can get some worthwhile practice."

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.

"Are you okay? I don't think people mind when you bring in those delicious potatoes, but I doubt you like being carried around like a sack of one.~"

"Oh, no. I'm fine!" He said, giving Veronica a reassuring smile before letting out a small sigh, relieved to have his feet back on the floor of the guild hall once again. It's not as if he was too bothered by it, in fact Armin really enjoyed the liveliness of the guild in the mornings. It wasn't just Briar, but Lilina and Ryden and the others who seemed to fill the guild with such energy. It could become troublesome sometimes, like if Akio became to flirty with someone and got himself punched in the face or worse, but Armin had gotten used to the roughhousing of the other guild members. His aunt and uncle did tell him that he'd always have a place to come home to, but he couldn't imagine being anywhere but here.

Suddenly his thoughts were interrupted when out of nowhere the body of another person, Lilliana to be precise, bumped into him quite roughly. If he hadn't of been holding onto the top of the sack of potatoes so tightly it probably would've fallen onto the floor.

"Ah, sorry!" He heard Lilina say. He'd barely had the time to notice that she'd fallen rump first onto the floor and was now picking herself up from where she'd landed. "I made a little oopsie, haha!"

Lilina messed up? That wasn't something that happened often. Either way it was an accident so he gave her a nod before she began to talk to Briar about going on a mission and he turned to face Lilliana.

"You're going on a B rank mission, Lilly? That's a first! I bet you're going to do really good!" He said to her with an excited smile before bringing the index finger of his left hand up and lightly scratching his cheek "Speaking of which I was hoping to try one myself today, but I haven't got anyone to partner up with. Oh, that's right!" His eyes widened for a second in realization and he looked up a as if to ponder through his head. "If you'll excuse me, Lilly-chan." He said, looking back at her and bowing his head a little before turning around.

Tatsou was still sitting by himself, his food nearly gone now though. He really must've put a lot on his plate. Armin had thought about approaching him earlier to warn him that if he ate that much he might get a stomach ache, but with him getting thrown over Brair's shoulder an all...he got a little side-tracked and completely forgot that he was sitting by himself.

"Good morning, Tatsou!" He said cheerfully, sitting himself down next to him after setting the bag of potatoes on the table top behind them. He could probably just leave it there for now and let others help themselves. He couldn't go carrying it around with him after all, and he wasn't very hungry himself. Armin never really ate that much, which was probably why he wasn't very tall nor muscular. Maybe he should eat more...

"I heard earlier that Ryden is going on an A rank mission. Cool right? Are you planning on going on any missions today?" The blond asked curiously, resting his arms crossed over each other on the table and leaning forward slightly.

Uh-oh. She had done it now! Of all the people around her, why did she have to crash-land into her dear Armin?!

With a muffled 'thump!', Lilliana let out an 'Oompf!' as the air in her lungs was literally squeezed out. Her eyes fell on Lilina, who was quick to recover from her fall, before darting to the person she herself had bumped into.

The blank stare on her face was coloured a deep red soon enough, and the princess quickly buried her head in the collar of her clothes as far as she could. Slim fingers fidgeted around with the cover of the book they were holding, pressing one side heavily into the girl's chest.

“S-S-sorry...” Came a muffled response from Lilliana, her eyes sneaking a blurry peek from underneath some fringes of brown hair to witness the boy's reaction to her clumsy action.

Her stupidity couldn't have caught her in a more uncomfortable situation, and all the while, Lilliana kept hoping something else would drag her away from this forced confrontation.

Oh dear, oh dear! He wasn't going to be angry at her, right? Find her weird, or annoying?

“You're going on a B rank mission, Lilly? That's a first! I bet you're going to do really good!”

The girl blinked. He isn't mad? He isn't mad! Her little heart raced with joy, her lips forming a genuine smile, though she was far too nervous to actually dare and lift her head. “Y-yeah...” She answered rather hastily, the low whisper even more muffled with Lilliana's head hung low.

She was going al right, but she wasn't going to do any real physical work. Upon the reminder that she had actually chosen to go, Lilliana couldn't help but feel a little discouraged by Armin's words. What am I thinking?! There was no way she'd be helpful. At all! She'd be luggage with legs, and Briar and Lilina would be pulling off two jobs at once! Why am I such a klutz today!

Her inner stress was subdued by Armin excusing himself, and bowing his head before leaving to join Tatsuo at his table. “B-Bye.” Lilliana followed her little prince with her eyes, suppressing the urge to leap and embrace him for being so kind to her. Again.

Looking at Tatsuo, the girl greeted the quiet dragon slayer with a graceful bow and flashed Armin an almost unnoticeable wave – Her fingers barely leaving the surface of the book.

Her smile widened as she murmured, “We talked...”, before twirling around and join up with her team. Her head still as red as a freshly plucked tomato.

I feel so fuzzy! A hand lifted to her face, gently pressing itself on her cheek. Something that was so simple had really sapped her morning energy, and her usual worries about the mission rose once more. “Ehm... I- Ah...” She sighed, facing the tall man with the fiery hair. “Mister Briar, eh... sir,” Lilliana adjust her pose, finally allowing her tightened arms to loosen up a bit. “At what time do you wish to leave?”
