5 Years ago...

"Can you beat me jindal? Can you kill a dragon who taught you everything just for your guild? For your so called friends?" The black dragon scoffed and laughed as he saw Jindal and Jamboree stand up. "I'll help you destroy this cocky lizard and we can go home." Jamboree said with a cough and a heavy breathe as he spit some blood on the ground. "Let's go Jamboree Unison raid!" Jindal formed a circle of shadows around the dragon as Jamboree threw all the swords he could summon into the ground around the dragon who dodged them all equally. "Ha! you two missed now I'll finish this with a..." Jindal laughed as Jamboree ex-quipped herculean armor. Jindal Used the shadows to hit the dragon with a roar from all sides. The force blew the swords at the dragon impaling him with all the swords. The dragon was growling from inside the sphere still clearly alive until a giant fist of shadow came down on the sphere causing a massive explosion of darkness. The two mages looked up to see their opponent still standing...

5 Years Later...

"Hey jindal's back that's him right the black dragon?" A few people asked as a dark mist flowed into the guild's main room and a figure shrouded in it walked in. He threw the paper at the nearest flat surface. "5 year quest complete. I've killed Nagiru the black dragon. Jamboree is busy getting our new friends and will be bringing any new members into the guild hall soon." Jindal announced before finding a nice dark spot to sit and fall alseep.

"Jindal! You can't sleep just yet we need to talk to you about the guild! We have grown while you where away, you are one of the few S ranked wizards here and you need to take responsibility!" Lyla walks up stairs. "Jindal! tell me when Jamboree arrives so we can talk in a more serious manner and DO NOT FORGET!" When I am upstairs waiting I can be seen writing down notes in the corner while keeping a distrustful eye on everyone.

When Lyla leaves Lily goes up to Jindal. "Are you needing anything?" I say softly as I sit next to him. "I know Lyla can be a bit overwhelming. Do you want a drink?" I run off and go get cherry flavored water. "If you like this you can have it." I hold the drink up to him only to twist to much and fall. "I'm sorry, I will clean this up and leave you alone."

Asa was busting a table at the restaurant she was getting this month's food money from. She was silent, looking down as she cleaned the tables, she wore a white apron over her usual black attire as she wiped down the table with a cloth and set the menus back up. She avoided the front door, the sun was always too bright to her, so she cleaned the tables with her back to the entrance.

A choir of commotion jutted Jin out of his slumber, one hand autonomously grasped the hilt of a blade while the other prepared to slip off the sheath. It wasn’t a healthy practice sleeping next to sharp objects, just something that grew on the adolescent swordsman. He decided to be one of the few guild members to sleep in the guild hall since it’s usually a very peaceful morning. But this awakening contradicted such a belief. Once his pupils dilated, he eased his guard around the katana and sat upright in his bed, wiping the sleep out of his eyes before letting out an unrestricted yawn. ”What is it so early in the morning…” His movements were groggy and sluggish, taking a few seconds with each turn until he finally got out of bed and dressed himself. Rather than going with the iconic military uniform, Jin decided to sport something a bit more casual; a brown sweater with a corresponding undershirt, a pair of black jeans with his sword buckled, and a scarf the same tint as his hair.

With a nod of affirmation the boy exited his room and lethargically proceeded down the halls, accidentally letting another yawn bypass his lips. When he had seen it himself, the commotion was most definitely warranted. It had been quite some time since he had seen that scruffy face. But looks were always deceiving, albeit Jindal appeared to be a slacker, and without a doubt acts like one, when the time called he managed to commit some impossible feat and save the day. The mystery shrouding him was almost as dark as the mist he had the tendency to pop out of, but Jin wasn’t one to pry an amnesiac. He actually liked spending his time effectively, rather than pointlessly wasting it. Not a moment had passed and the studious Lyla was already machine-gunning orders at the recent returnee. The teal-haired girl was so hellben- determined to exceed her family without assistance, a rather authoritative personality had came to fruition, one which sharply contrasted with the innocent Lily. Speaking of the blonde, she was already comforting Jindal as soon as Lyla stormed off. A slight smirk parted the corners of his lips at the sight. But that expression quickly changed to distraught when the clutz gracefully tripped and spilled the sweet beverage.

Jin ran a hand down the back of his neck and paced his way over to the side of the room, ”If you sleep like that, your back’s gonna go out when you’re older. Long time no see, Kiddo.” Even though he was only two years Jindal’s senior, Jin’s mature personality far exceeded his age. ”Hey, I didn’t see you bearing a bag of any sort. I hope Jamboree has the souvenirs with him, or my heart may shatter into a million pieces.” The swordsman grabbed a towel from a nearby table and motioned to Lily that he would clean up the spill, ”This stuff’s expensive, be careful with it next time.” He gave the girl a kind smile and discarded the towel in a receptacle, ”Sleep on one of the couches and get a few minutes of shuteye, unless you want Lyla to give you another earful. Even though it’s been five years, I’m still a coffee addict. Gonna head out to my usual joint, you know where to find me.” Jin began to make his way towards the exit, but suddenly paused and glanced back, ”Glad to have you back. Can’t wait to meet the new members.” He waved at the two before taking his leave.




The aforementioned joint happened to be a restaurant he fancied. Customer flow at this hour was practically nonexistent, so he found it the best time to grab his morning refreshment, chock full of caffeine and invigorating goodness. The shop’s bell rang as he opened the door, Jin peered inside to see who was present. Nobody as of yet, excluding a lone waitress setting up the menus. The white apron heavily contrasted with her black attire, almost to the point where he wanted to verbally note it. Although, the pair of opposite colored wings did manage to catch his eye. Humanoids were considered a commodity, but usually one’s facial features were matched their inherent animalistic characteristics. He shrugged and sat himself at the restaurant’s bar, and waved at the girl, ”Erm, could I get a cup of coffee please?”

(lol, I didn't mean for her to have wings, that was just the best pic I could find, but I can work off it.)

Asa looked up then looked down again silently, returning to her work as the shadows on his table started to shift to form dark lettering in front of him. I am not a waitress, I'm only here to clean.She then turned and went to bring the dishes to the sink in the kitchen then came back out with a broom, ringing the bell as she went and a real waitress came out and took his order.

"I... I... Layla I am not in the mood for your yelling right now. I knew the target very well and it was the only thing I remembered and I had to eliminate it! So just back off for a bit!" Jindal yelled still covered in the dark shadows that cloaked his every detail like mist before letting them drop. He was bruised and heavily cut in various places. He groaned a little from the pain before standing up and holding out his new swords both made of dragon fangs and the sheathes were made of black scales. "I killed the dragon that taught me my magic for this guild. I then carried Jamboree on my back while bleeding for two days without any sleep. I then spent the next four days fending off the urge to sleep so I could help him recover so I think I earned some rest!" He said before coughing a bit and being forced to bend over. "I need to get a little rest and I need a meal. I refuse to eat stale bread or muddy water again. I'm bringing more jewels next time and I sure as hell don't care for this part of the reward." He muttered tossing a silver key onto the table in front of him he then gave a cocky grin before turning to the request board.

"You guys weren't interested in joining our guild from the start were you?" Jamboree said staring at two now knocked out people with the guild symbol for a dark guild called Death Head Caucus. "We came to get a guild member back from you guys His mission is done our master said. He didn't return yet and we've tracked him down you idiot. I know who you are you're from..."

Image

5 Hours Later...

Jamboree entered the coffee shop looking beaten and tired but carrying a bag of goodies. "Hey Jin seems our new members were actually fakes. Death Head Caucus was trying to get some spies in. Good thing I felt something wrong or it might have worked." Jamboree said before opening the bag that contained a dragon head and some claws but it also contained a few roses. "Look what I got! We're gonna put it on the wall in the guild's main hall. It was Jindal's idea he said it would respect his old mentor." Jamboree set the bag down having cleaned the head before putting it in the bag.

Asa sighed as she heard more people enter the restaurant. She'd been told that people didn't come in at this hour. She slowly made the corner she was cleaning darker in shadow, as to try to hide and be not as noticeable with this stupid bright white apron on.

Jin tilted his head as the girl continued with her cleaning duties. Something out of the corner of his peripheral vision caught his attention, he shifted uneasily in his seat as he watched the shadow of his table slowly creep its way to the top and proceeded to form lettering on the cloth cover. ”I’m not a waitress, I’m only here to clean… Oh, I see. My apologies.” This place was better off than he had expected. They had enough income to higher employees with specific roles, rather than jacks-of-all-trades. He knew that at least everybody who walked through the streets had an ability of their own, no matter how versatile or effective, everyone had a tince of something. But this girl’s ability was something strikingly familiar, ”...It’s just like his. Maybe we should have Jindal patent umbrakinesis…” A fraction of a smile formed on his face at the thought, but she definitely had a noteworthy ability. The waitress she called was a familiar face and instantly recognized him as a regular, greeting the coffee-seeking boy with an endearing smile which could charm any passerby. ”So, what would it be today, Mr. Akri? The usual?” Jin returned the expression and nodded, ”Yes, please.” The waitress disappeared into the kitchen to prepare a brew, leaving the two alone yet again. He was tempted to help her out with cleaning, but that sense of accomplishment after completing a task was probably her sole form of motivation to get through the day. It was rare to see people work normal jobs so religiously.

A majority of the populace were members of a guild, and depending on the conglomerate’s fame or notoriety, could bring in a lot of income and a few renowned titles. Jin unconsciously began to twirl the end of his scarf around a finger while he waited for his coffee, with the meticulously working girl as his only way to kill the time. That was the case, until another individual skulked into the restaurant and sat down next to him. A bewildered Jin slowly turned to his right and glanced up at the titan of a man. His hand began sneaking its way towards the hilt of his blade, just in case. Most people were easygoing, but once in a while there are those loose cannons who waltzed around with enough pompour to drown somebody. He could recount the times he was involved in bar fights, which he always came out on top, but drunks were surprisingly more persistent than normally sober individuals. If this guy suddenly started magically chugging beer through his helmet, Jin would already be able to tell that he would be in for a bad time.

The waitress finally returned with his coffee on a circular platter and placed it in front of him. ”Thank you.” The boy gently blew at its surface to cool it off. A third person suddenly made an appearance, just to spice things up, and thankfully he was bearing gifts. It was Jamboree, and as per the usual, roughed up as if he was just in a tussle. His comrade ebulliently showed off the contents of the bag, and also informed him of an attempted internal attack. He gave the guild members a surprised look before leaning back in his seat, ”Well, at least you caught onto them before they rooted themselves in the guild. Would’ve been a real hassle hunting them down for any stolen information. Man… I was really looking forward to the new members.”

Jin tipped the cup and gulped down a portion of the bitter beverage, ”Speaking of Jindal… Go easy on the guy. He came back today looking like he was beaten up by a neighborhood bully, and nearly fell asleep on the spot. Lyla gave him one helluva earful for it.” The swordsman propped his chin against the palm of his hand and stared at his friend, ”I’m sure there’s a lot running through his head right now. It would be best to give him a few days off, considering the quest he just finished...Now as for the new members…” Jin glanced at the ginormous man sitting a few seats down, then back at the girl who was now attempting to seclude herself in a corner. He placed an arm around Janboree’s neck and pulled him closer, then dropped his voice to a whisper, ”We have two new candidates right here. Anybody’s acceptable. They don’t need to be deities, just have to be able to take our place in case we fall victim to some godawful fate.” A playful smirk abruptly painted itself on his face, ”Also, that girl over there can control shadows, and might have a few more cards up her sleeve. It’ll be interesting seeing to umbrakinesis users in the same guild. As for the other guy…” The task of recruiting him seemed impossible, merely striking up a conversation with him was daunting enough.

Jin released his friend and gave him a pat on the back, ”Well, g’luck~ Use that Sword God magic you always use to woo those fangirls. Who knows, maybe he likes roses?” The boy backed away from the table, simultaneously picking up his coffee cup and walking over to the girl sweeping to her heart’s content. He set the platter down on the nearest table and paced his way over to the girl, then tapped her on the shoulder. ”Hey, you can take a seat. I’ll sweep for you. Also, the name’s Jin Akri.” He pulled out a chair for the girl and then offered an open palm, ready to accept the broomstick. ”Would you care to join a guild…?” He suddenly perked up when he realized how sudden the question may have sounded, ”Sorry, um, don’t feel obliged to answer right away. There’s a trial run and everything for it, but most people tend to take a liking to Cait Shelter.”

Asa, who hadn't been paying a lick of a attention to anyone else in the room since that would require some form of interest in them, jumped and gasped in surprise when she felt a sudden tap on her shoulder, causing her defensive to instantly turn on. She jutted forward and crouched into a ball on the ground, a shielding ball of darkness appearing around her as tendrils of darkness arose from the ball and began thrashing around, knocking anything and everything around her away. Seems it wasn't so much that she disliked people... but that she was terrified of them.

She was sitting in a pool of blood, It was a guild war, with more emphasis on war. The dark guild, Overlord, has successfully decimated another guild, with Equtas herself being the killer of the guild leader. The crimson painted the walls, bodies decorated the battlefield. The guild leader of Overlord was sitting on a throne of corpses, her "heroes" behind her. A motto that has become the saying that keeps the other guild members sane. The ones with power should be the ones who uses it, if you aren't using your gift, it's a waste.






Equtas' eyes shot open, she was holding her mouth, as the dream has sickened her, damaging her mind and her throat, they were her old memories, the old her, the sadistic monster who would maim someone in a heartbeat, the person who would incapacitate someone beyond repair, she doesn't have all her old memories, but appearing in the safety of sleep, wasn't helping all too much either.

Equtas didn't have a home, and not even a sleeping place. Of course, her shy nature refused to let her sleep with "others", in the vicinity, so she slept closely outside, she didn't have much things in her pocket, except the clothes on her back, of course she does missions, her power at the moment being a bit lower then an S-Level, but she doesn't do it as much, just the thought of missions gives her memories she rather forget. The clothes she was currently wearing is plates of armor on a purple striped dress, attire that was similar to her previous style, even if it triggers unwanted thoughts, it felt more comfortable wearing something she was used too.

Equtas slowly got up. The ground wasn't merciful to her choice, remaining as cold and rigid as it should. The white haired girl briefly held her head, and did her daily rountine, luckily, no one would dare to look in a dark, ominous alleyway such as the one she was residing within, so she got a hint of privacy in a densely populated town known as Fiore. Swiftly, She made her way towards the restaurant.

A big, burly man seemed to be occupying the doorway, only because of Equtas' is rather small stature, she barely squeezed through, stepping over the less then important bodies on the ground, and sitting on an unoccupied seat. She was quiet as always, she is appeared enough times, with the same order, that she didn't need to call over a waitress, the ruckus seemed to be decelerating the process, but it gave Equtas enough time, to non-creepily observe the other members.

The main culprit of the racket seemed to be Jamboree, who made quick work of two unidentified individuals, Death Head Caucus, was it? Equtas didn't pay much attention, she was putting the existence of dark guilds behind her, Jamboree, Jindal, and Jin, seemed to make a group, 3 Js. The group has earned the nickname of the three stooges by Equtas, they were all strong, and all nice, in their own right. However, Equtas doesn't like "nice" people, or simply doesn't think they exist in a dog-eat-dog world such as this one.

As for Equtas, she herself isn't as flashy, nor is the other females of Cait Shelter, aside from the black haired female, performing magic in the presence of everyone, the big man himself speaking to her after, the brotherly bond between the three males outshines anything else, but when it comes to Equtas, she is probably not even known in her own guild, she was seen, but never conversed with, no one even notices a rather high-level job being taken from the board. Her goal for joining the guild isn't to make acquaintances, it's to make up for her wrongdoings.

The cup of tea arrived on the platter, the white haired girl nonchalant about the motion. In her moment of pondering, she has forgotten about it's presence, the tea was lukewarm, which in Equtas' eyes is the perfect time to drink it, she couldn't relax with so much people around her, so she quickly got up and left, leaving the minuscule amount that is it's cost on the table, she also took a random job from the board, spending minimal time examining it, walking out the door to her hiding place in broad daylight which was a few feet from the left of the door, as she reads over the mission, she wants to be close to the restaurant, if she ever wanted a refill, of course.

Collaboration Pt. 2


As Asa hid inside the ball of shadow she listened nervously to all the conversation going on around her, she swallowed nervously as she heard him offer her a haven at Cait Shelter, forcing herself to drown any hope she almost felt. A bright white light started to paint itself on the shadows, writing letters like the shadows hand done earlier.
I can't have a haven in the day... However, the tendrils did disappear, sinking back into the shadow that surrounded her.

Jin tilted his head at the lettering, on his face was an unbalanced mixture of perplexion and surprise. "So she also uses photokinesis...? Interesting. Maybe she isn't so much like Jindal." In all honesty, he wasn't sure if he could handle to people whose sole ability was popping out of shadows to give people a shock. He eased his guard as the tendrils retracted themselves back into the orb, making his job quite a lot easier. On top of that, the light she wielded was of a notable purity, immortally untainted by anything negative in this world. "You know, they say light of such an intensity is a gift from angels, which briefly descended from the heavens. Of course that's a whole lot of religious hosh posh, but others simply believe it's a gift from the moon." He wasn't sure whether the girl was tied with the sphere which always shined brightly in the night sky, but he could at least attempt to coax her out. "I personally don't care what others think of me, and because of that, I can roam the streets at my leisure. Maybe you might want to try that policy with us?"


As was silent a moment, well, her lettering was silent, before she simply wrote,
The moon gave me life... with the moonlight on the shadow that surrounded her before the shadow slowly sand back onto the floor, revealing her, crouched down with her arms around her legs and her light grey eyes watching him, as if she'd been able to see him through the shadows the entire time. She slowly stood up and looked around at the mess she'd caused, beginning to pick up.

Jin waved his hand and set a chair upright, putting the crisis to an end. "Well, the sun accompanies the moon. They're both forever linked to each other. So... will that be a yes?" He asked, thankfully, most of the tables and chairs were unharmed.

Asa nodded softly as she put the tables back upright and waited for Jin to lead the way.


Jin smiled and gave a quick thumbs up to the other two, who had just beared witness to the whole charade. "Crisis averted!" He stated with certainty, as if the whole thing abided by a plan. "JIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!" Just like that, a giant hand clamped itself around his scalp. The boy slowly turned around to face his demise; the shop's owner. She was the embodiment of the term amazoness, slightly taller than Mr. Helmet, yet probably ten times stronger. She lifted the swordsman into the air, with his flailing arms as his only way of survival. "Mind explaining what happened?" Jin managed to free himself from the grasp and dropped to his feet, taking a moment to catch his breath, "I would go into detail, but I'm just going to skip over all of it and promise Cait Shelter will cover all repair fees. Don't worry Jam, I calculated this month's net income, we're in the clear. Also..." He twiddled his thumbs while looking at the ground, "Yes, Jin?"

"Can I have another cup of coffee to go, please?" The shop owner held herself back from turning the boy into that afternoon's main course, and stormed off back into the kitchen. "Well, we managed to survive that. Jam, want to lead the way to our guild hall? Pretty sure the others will be hyped to see our new members." Jin suddenly paused, as if his train of thought had derailed. After a few moments of silence he facepalmed and glanced back and forth between the two newer individuals, "...I can't believe I forgot to ask... What are you names? I'm Jin Akri, and the pretty boy is Jamboree Maksim.'

Asa watched the store owner almost turn Jin into minc meat, litterally, then looked over at him when she was asked her name and she looked down, shadows moving over her head that read. Asa Sachi She still didn't want to speak to anyone yet if she could avoid it.

The setting changes from fiore to Cait Shelter Guild hall

Where My Demons Hide - Imagine Dragons


Jindal saw the notice after sitting at the table and staring at the wall for a few minutes. He then stood and decided he'd do his best not to get voted as guild master. Large crowds and transportation were his only weaknesses and they would be more common as a guild master. "I am not suitable to be a Guild Master due to my past!" Jindal shouted hiding his relief that this would work before a few members he didn't know spoke out. "But you don't even remember your past! Yeah you're fine I think you'd Do great! AYE!" Jindal started to get nervous and realized they wouldn't let him off the hook that easily either. "Shit. Exactly why I shouldn't lead You guys would do better with Equtas." He said trying to divert their attention since he'd been the first to make any comments about mastering the guild. He now had a few people crowded around him. "I gotta go I have a job" Jindal said slightly panicking before vanishing in a cloud of shadows along with a job off the s rank board. He then proceeded to walk outside looking at the random paper he'd snagged.


Jamboree watched everything at the coffee shop unfold before sighing and deciding to pay the shop owner for all the damages and stuff himself before leading the way aback to the guild where he explained what happened to the fake recruits. "I'll happily throw myself into the fray for Guild Master! I've got the experience but if it's not me it should be Jin or Layla maybe Jindal." Jamboree explained.

Jin opened the door and motioned for the three to enter before him. The guild’s main reception room was surprisingly unadorned, with the only spice being the sporadic arrangement of trophies and awards hung up on the walls. No cloth to brighten up the dull colored couches, a barely maintained bar with a few used glasses on the countertop, he wouldn’t be surprised if they were overwhelmed with disbelief that this was the hall of the renowned Cait Shelter. The group had already received the notification of the soon to be held polls from a dispatched guild member, and as expected, many were assembled in the room due to that, in addition to greeting the new guild members.

If anything, Asa and Hunter seemed even more dubious than the two original recruits who had furnished backgrounds. Murmurs seeped through the conglomerate of members at the sight. It was blatantly obvious that more had their eyes locked on the giant in the room, rather than the basically ordinary looking girl. Jin glanced at the expressions the masses were making. Nobody didn’t seem sound in rising up to a position of such omnipotence, or moreso, they had already decided on a few candidates. The person to make this verbally clear was none other than one of the runners, Jamboree. He sacrificed himself for the good of the community, but also mentioned Lyla, Jin, and Jindal. Jin himself didn’t seem to resonate with the last option, as seen by his furrowed brow, Jindal seemed to be a candidate because of his power, but that was it.

As for Lyla and Jin, it didn’t take a genius to state why. They were both longtime veterans of the guild, Lyla was a dominating mastermind with years of adult-like wisdom to back her up, meanwhile Jin had a borderline military pedigree and had a high tier combat style. They had enough jurisdiction to make onerous decisions, but were not considered official leaders of any sort. With that being said, he took the bag containing the souvenirs and raised his free hand, ”I agree, it is time we appoint ourselves a leader, a person to make detrimental decisions during rough times. We may be a guild known for our expertise in combat, but it’s not the strong leader who wins, but the one strength and an equivalent amount of virtue is the one to rise to the challenge. I just want to make this clear, regardless of who we appoint as our leader, this will still be the same Cait Shelter which welcomed you in the day you joined our ranks. I say this with the upmost certainty, because it is not our goals which connect us, but our ideologies resounding in harmony that keeps our ties intact.” He looked over at a group of five members and handed them the bag, ”Find a mantle for this and place it wherever you like. Have Lily help you if need be. I think Jamboree drained all of the blood, but just be careful.” Jam wasn’t exactly known for his tediousness, but hopefully he had the foresight to act accordingly with a trophy from a beheaded dragon. There wasn’t exactly a guidebook for such a thing.

”That being said, I’d rather not run for guildmaster. I’m too much of a goofball to ascend to such a status. On another note, as Jamboree mentioned earlier, we were nearly breached by a dark guild who seem to have a vendetta with us. We would like to ask that guild members travel in teams of two or more, just for safety reasons.” Having issues wasn’t something Cait Shelter hadn’t experienced in the past, a guild with such fame would most definitely anticipate signs of animosity. But going through the hassle of living under a false pretense and fashioning the reputation to bolster it was surprising, even almost plausible. Chances are, this was only a prelude to the symphony of strife soon to ensue.

As the selected members went upstairs to rummage through the hall’s storage, Jin walked over to Hunter and Asa and pointed a thumb over his shoulder in the same direction, ”The second floor is where the sleeping quarters are located. Just find an empty room and claim it as your own. Unsealing the mattress should be enough of a sign to others that your room is occupied. If you have any questions, should be pretty easy to find me. Just remember to knock, don’t want to walk in on any maidens changing~” He chirped the last part while satirically wagging his finger at Hunter, he then turned around to face the whole embodiment of the guild population. By this time, the group had returned with a wooden mantle and was already in the process of setting up the display. Jin showed them all an assemblage of ebullient white teeth, ”Alright, enough with the serious talk! Let’s welcome our new guild members, Hunter Briggs and Asa Sachi!” A chorus of cheers echoed throughout the room, a grand greeting for the two additions. Jin stepped back towards Asa and dropped his voice to a whisper, ”In case you’re not feeling up to the occasion, feel free to make a beeline for a room. Should probably get some rest after working at that cafe.” The boy still took her timidness into account, and would rather not have a repeat of event a few minutes prior during a celebratory event. "So, you two, how does it feel to be one of us?"

"The first hello and every last goodbye."

Asa looked around uncertainly as everyone clapped and greeted them, nodding at Jin's suggestion she headed towards the stairs, though she would pick out a room to store her stuff she was still planning on sleeping outside.

It seemed that the majority of the guild was flooding out of the restaurant, Equtas only noticing after the spectacle occurred, as she was more interested in the tea she was drinking, she did enjoy a cup of green tea. She quickly got up, packed up her belongings and set out for the guild hall, the road there becoming desolate as the wave of members has already passed.

Equtas wasn't rushing because of the anxiety to see the new members, she was making haste because of the job she has acquired, the job was a simple bodyguard mission, but the reward was less then appealing, a measly 1000 jewel, which made Equtas second guess the importance of the individual, after taking a stop to return the mission, (which was obviously a joke), she hurried up the hill, to make up for her loss of time.

As she was running to the guild hall, accidentally bumping into a dark hair boy on his way to a mission, the thump was light, but with enough impact to be noticeable. "Excuse me" Her voice was soft, soothing and mesmerizing at the same time, but she didn't wait for a response, as she hurried inside.

It seems they were doing some kind of orientation, Hunter Briggs and Asa Sachi, people she had seen before at the restaurant, but not at all before that, it didn't shift to first priority, so Equtas didn't pay much attention, her only goal was to collect a job, and leave. The guild hall was relatively small, but the max occupancy has been lapped already. Equtas barely made her way between the various members. When she got to the board, she actually spent time choosing a fitting mission, instead of random selection. She settled with a simple hunting mission, monster terrorizing town. She choose it because for the reward mostly, as the whole town seem to have collaborated to make a fitting bounty. She then swiftly left the guild hall, leaving no trace.

A few hours later, once the festivities had died down and the sun was starting to set Asa left the shelter of her dark room and went down the stairs, heading for the door to get herself something to eat.

5 weeks later...

Jindal stepped into the guild hall closed in shadows as normal when it happened. He got a odd chill in his spine before the guild door was violently thrown open. He put both his hands up out of instinct and wondered where that idea had come from. He then looked at the door and saw a group of council enforcers standing there holding a paper. "Jindal the black dragon you're hereby under arrest for crimes against the council and the destruction of a building in this very town. The other charges are as follows:

48 counts of assassination.
77 counts of hiding evidence.
223 counts of using forbidden magic.
3 counts of murdering a council member.
1 count of joining a dark guild.
99 counts of theft.
221 counts of defacing public property.
800 counts of assault and battery.
3 counts of arson
And finally 2 counts of using the secret magic of death head cactus. Death head law a thousand executions."

Jindal stood up shocked and a large amount of gasps could be heard. He looked at them shocked then at everybody else before taking a deep breathe and sighing. "I don't remember any of that but I trust the council's judgement. I may or may not be guilty but I certainly won't add to the list of crimes." He said before turning to walk to them without putting up resistance. He was arrested quickly.

Jamboree looked stunned and almost tried to fight for Jindal but decided against it. "You guys are making a mistake! He's innocent." He stated before turning to go to his room on the second floor of the building.

Over the past few weeks Asa has opened up to the guild members bit by bit, she still rarely used her real voice. She had also come to rely upon Jindal. She'd grown very close to him and when the guards came in saying he had done all of this stuff, she knew they had to be wrong. She reached out and grabbed Jindal's sleeve as they were trying to take him away, looking up at him pleadingly.

"You get away from him girl. He's not someone we can let run around free." Asa looked at the man, hate in her eyes as she used her powers to write in shadows. "You let me run free..." The man's eyes widened and before he could say anything Asa dashed out the door, running down the streets. "I recognize those powers... GUARDS AFTER HER!"

For Hunter Briggs the past Five Weeks, since starting, have been relatively busy. Not taking much time to settling in, the first week he was amiss, away on a mission he took upon himself from the bulletin board. These were quite simple missions that didn't require a group of mages to undertake. The only reason it took Hunter a week to complete was because of traveling. This first mission he underwent was quite far from Cait Shelter on some distant part of Fiore. The first few days were arriving to a small village that seems to have had an minor nuisance of diminutive monsters causing mischief for the villagers. Hunter took care of the issue by scaring them away. He then returned with some Jewel.

The next following weeks was filled with more jobs, another on his own which again took a week to complete, most of it based on travel. Yet one job was completed with the help of two other mages from the guild. He was approached one day by Mimi Tronoux, she asked if he would join her and her normal partner, Xiros Farfetcher, on a particularly difficult job. It would have been difficult for Hunter to agree to such a team up. The reason he was taking jobs alone was to in fact protect himself. He could cut loose and use his Chaos Magic without fear of the repercussions if certain mages caught sight of his taboo technique. Yet, he has done the whole, lone wolf routine before and with mixed results. More time than naught, he was still caught and expelled. He supposes being alone all the time was too suspicious for most. So he at times, teamed up with guildmates in order to redirect suspicions off himself. Yet that too has met with mixed results.

Depending on the jobs and other, unforseen, consequences, Hunter has been forced to use his full power in order to survive. Despite accomplishing the Guild's goals, he revealed himself before members of the Guild. And of course expulsion has followed. He has traveled very far and across many lands in order to find a place where he has yet to be recognized. Fiore was a nice place, far out west, and here no one knows of him and his many expulsions. Still if he is to have success he must be smart and find pleasant balances between being alone and keeping up appearances. So, refusing Mimi would be too alarming he fears. Hunter agreed, despite him knowing that he would have the fight at half power. He used only his Holy Magic during the quest and therefor it took longer than it would have if he could use his darker powers. He could have used Darkness Magic instead, but, many Mages fear that dark art and think it purely evil. Holy Magic is seen much more favorably.

After he returned, it seemed Mimi and Xiros, who were quite uncertain of him at first, returned with praise for his help and skills. This in turned helped to place Hunter in a brighter light for the new recruit. Making his fellow Guildmates to feel not so uneasy about him. Except now, if he were to be asked to go on a mission he will have to confine himself to only Holy Magic. Its what they all will expect of him now. Frustrating indeed, but a necessary risk. After he returned from the previous mission he took the time to actually get some rest. Something he hasn't truly done for quite awhile now. It was on the day when madness seemed to have broken out in the guild that he was prepared to leave on a new job.

He was in the Guild Hall when the Enforcers entered the scene. "What!? How did they find me so quickly!? I never revealed my true power to anyone here!" Hunter thought to himself. "No! I can't leave, not now, I just arrived!" He began to panic. That was until the Enforcers asked for Jindal. "Jindal?" Hunter thought as he looked towards the boy in black. Despite his being there, he hadn't met with all of the Guild members, nor talked to them for any long period of time. The most interactions hes had with are with Mimi, Xiros, Jamboree, and Jin. The others were either too afraid to speak with him, or he simply avoided most interactions. He didn't know much about this Jindal, he was quite the mystery to him. Yet, everyone he did speak with, thought highly of the boy. Their picture of him surely did not match the one the Council was painting. Hunter couldn't help but think it hard to believe that Jindal was that dangerous.

He worried for Jamboree, he seemed brash enough to attack the Enforcers, but luckily he didn't. It would seem Jindal would go quietly, furthering everyone else's point and even rousing Hunter to feel outraged. It was then that Asa interfered with the situation making that much more worse. She revealed her abilities and they turned to chase after her. "NO! That foolish girl! Why would she reveal herself in such a way!? It was pointless!" He thought angrily to himself. He was wondering what should he do? If he were to interfere he would most surely reveal his powers too, and then he would be hauled off to the council as well! Curses! He felt so incapable, so helpless, as his guildmates were being arrested for no good reason! It was an outrage, but if he is to help them, then he must not get involved. He will do them no good if he was detained as well. He just hoped Asa would escape them. As for Jindal...well, he was beginning to wish they had a Guild Master for times like these.

Asa dashed down the streets, dodging pedestrians as the guards charged after her. She wrote in the air in big letters so they'd see. You think you can catch me now? She disappeared into a dark alleyway and when the guards entered it, though there was no escape route from the dark alley, she was gone. "Dammit!" The head guard proclaimed.
