Aarush

F, Healer, nickname Rush, sister of Isole.

0 · 185 views · located in The Forest Asylum

a character in “Forest Asylum”, as played by IvyCoppersky

Description

Name: Aarush Invierno, meaning 'First Rays of the Winter Sun', but everyone calls her Rush.

Age: 15

Gender: F

Personality: Aarush is a quick-thinker who tries to keep a positive outlook and keep those around her happy. She loves all seasons, and is usually almost naive-seming in her cheerful attitude... but reveals her true colors when its time for a fight. She loves to battle, and is a bit of a sadist for blood, showing no hesitancy to kill her enemies, but seeing someone she cares about in pain brings her to tears. She has clear and strong values, seeing the world for what it is, easily seeing through the grey straight to the little black-and-white bits. She is fiercely loyal and uses the naive act as a cover for dark thoughts and desires. Only her brother knows the true extent of that darkness, and exact where the white starts as well.

Appearance: Aarush has short coppery brown hair she wears in a headband, except for one tiny long bit in the front, beaded as is custom for her family line. She has light green eyes, and is slender and toned from training. She is a bit on the short and slight side of normal, about 5", 115 lb, and prefers clothing that is easy to move around in.

Weapon: Sword, but is also trained in staffs, sais, daggers, kamas, and can fully utilize her surroundings as a weapon.

History: Her mother died at birth, leaving her to be raised by her father, a Grandmaster (someone with over 9 black-belts, whom has as least 15 years black-belt experience, and has created his own discipline. Highest possible rank that any black-belt could achieve). Her father adopted Isole when she was only two, so she can't remember life without him as her brother. After hearing from him what exactly happened to Isole, she began helping him kill, though he would not let her until she was nine, and even then it was reluctantly out of concern for her safety.

Accusation: Serial murder.

Class: Healer.

(Yay! Hopefully everyone else will come bcd and actually POST something, too!)

(Warning: Blood. Tried not to make it TOO gory, though. But it's still pretty gory. ^.^)

Isole

I fall into step near the back of the group, carefully focusing on my senses, hearing and seeing things moving out in the first. A giant growl, the far-away screech of a hunted animal, the faint scent of blood in a low dug-out grass cave we passed, no doubt the former den of some creature. The shuffling and movements of the other humans.

Time passed. The sky grew no lighter. We continued to follow the faint drifting creatures. To where, none of us knew.

A faint, familiar scream rang through the trees from the distance, and I stopped, suddenly on high-alert."Cynthia.. did you hear that?" I called to her, where she was talking to the two others quietly. Or not so quietly at some points, but girls will be girls.

Again, I heard the scream, off to the left. I unsheathed my sword, holding it carefully away from my side, darting away into the woods, stepping carefully and soundlessly over sticks and dips in the ground filled with fallen leaves. Though being careful slowed me down to jogging pace as I slipped in a half-crouched running form through the trees, I had to be careful with my approach.

After five minutes, I caught a glimpse of something between the trees. A familiar form, clashing with some kind of twisted, ugly boar/kangaroo cross. It was horrifying to look at. Poor wretched creature...

The person fighting was a girl, her hair short except for a small braid in the front. Her face was painted in a snarl, but she was smiling as she bared her teeth at the thing, a growl rumbling in her throat. she was crouched, observing her opponent warily but with eyes gleaming with excitement. Her hand were posed in a practiced front stance form, except for her fingers being curled, bearing nails as weapons that were already covered in red, the same red that dribbled from her mouth, which she had obviously used to bite the thing. And judging by the chunk missing from the creature's throat, succeeded in using.

I leapt forward, a flash of the sword cutting a tear in it's side as it jumped away too slowly. I saw the girl bear her teeth again out of the corner of my eye, growling like a crazed animal as she back away, cradling her wrist. I rushed the creature, angry now, but was too far away to land a blow. I swung my sword anyway... and watched, a bit surprised, as as a crescent of ice folioed its path, extending out from the edge of the blade and reading far enough to cut the creature's whole front open, a sight that might make anyone else sick as the guts... (censored). Turning away, I walked to the girl. "You ok Rush?"

She nodded, calm now, a smile on her face.

"I'm fine, thanks." She said sweetly.

{OOC: Oh. Oh my...}

Cynthia shut her mouth as soon as the scream sounded. I heard Isole saying something, but my brain was too busy being scared to register the words. She followed, watching a girl fighting some odd kangaroo cross... boar, maybe. The creature seemed to be losing, and Cynthia turned away as the blade of ice cut through it. Isole walked towards the girl, like he hadn't just seen the crazed female take a chunk out of the thing's throat. Cynthia shrugged and walked towards the two. "You... You know each other, I assume?" Cynthia asked, hoping she wasn't the next target.

(Mwahahahaha! I noticed a few typos re-reading it today, though, sorry about those. I don't have spell check. :P)

(Ah, gore. Its so much fun to use it to mess with people's minds...)

Isole

Rush carefully touched her left wrist, which was swelling. She glanced at me, her calm demeanor reassuring me it was just a sprain, before she turned her head away to spit out some of the creature's blood. "Grooooooss." I hear her grumble.

"You... you know each other, I assume?" Cynthia said hesitantly, seeming a bit afraid.

"Ah - that is correct. Cynthia, this is my sister, Aarush." I said, gesturing from her to Rush, sword in hand. Then I take a soft rag out of my pocket and carefully wipe down the sword, sheathe it to free my hand, and take the tiny bottle of oil I had found in my pocket upon waking out. I put a tiny dab on the cloth and put the bottle away, unsheathing my sword to spread the oil thinly across the edge of the blade, where the tip had raked through the thing.

During this, Rush introduced herself. "Hello." She said, bowing at the waist with her eyes up. "I'm Aarush, but please call me Rush."

At my glance, she turned to me and bowed with her eyes down, striking a casual pose once she stood. "Thanks for the help, Sunbae. But where did you find your Katana? I woke up, and mine... was not there..." She said nervously, hand unconsciously moving to her waist to grasp at the air where her sword usually hung.

"It was lying on the ground near me." I explained. "I panicked a bit at first, too, but it was there, simply hidden. The others we have met here have weapons too, ones that were on their person when they woke that they have never seen before."

"Do you think they hid ours because they were ours before... this place?"

"Possibly."

Rush glanced at Cynthia. "What do you think? I woke up when that creature attacked me, but looking around I don't see my Katana. You've been awake longer than me, so whats your thoughts on that?" She asked, curious about an outside opinion.

#, as written by Zalgo
"Great, now we're all besties, can we get going? Staying in one place and making lots of noise is probably a bad idea, you know."

Some guy who decided to make his big reveal showed up.
"Yeah, sure, pretend you didn't basically just rephrase what I just said." Walter rolled his eyes at the wannabe ninja. His words falling on deaf ears they idly started in a direction, the lot of them walking on to their destination. He wasn't much too worried about the new guy but if this stranger was too much an issue he'd just split paths with the group and do his own thing. After all, none of them were all too attached to just say bye and forget each other even existed. At least, that's how he saw it. He worked best on his own skills and he wasn't gonna let the brooding edgy kid cramp his style.

As they were about to get anywhere there was mortal combat going down not too far ahead. Clearing out from the foliage he could see some random girl fighting a screwed up looking kangaroo thing. Before he could put his two cents in on the subject the only other guy in the group rushed to her aid. A shame really. He analyzed the situation at a lightning fast pace. I wish we'd of shown up a bit later so it'd already of finished her off before that putz finished off whatever the heck that dumb looking wrinkly thing is. Two birds, one stone and I wouldn't of even had to have lifted a finger. Oh well, guess not all wishes come true. He saw an opportunity to cut down on competition slip past. Yeah, this guy was probably gonna cramp his style. In any case he did away with the pitiful creature fast enough. Oh look, ice powers, guy thinks he's a ninja, whatever. Basically summed up his recollection of the fight.


As the creatures intestines spilt to the floor, the animal itself collapsing over the pile of it's own guts gurgling a wounded cry in it's own defeat, he just strolled up to the sad soon to be dead thing. He wasn't even phased by the brutal gore caused by the animal's wound. Meh. I'm a modern gamer, I've seen worse and rendered nearly as well as this. Can't say I'm not already desensitized to this stuff. He wasn't going to let a little bloodshed break his stride anytime soon.

"You... You know each other, I assume?" Cynthia asked the most redundant question ever considering the guy knew the girls name. He just rolled his eyes, starting on this thing's tusk since they looked much too useful to waste.

He started by cutting away the excess which was between him and the piece of it's face he actually wanted. Nothing of his was getting bloody since any time blood came in contact with his stuff it turned to water. That made dirty work far more tolerable. Eventually he found the base of the tusk itself. After a bit of chipping he eventually pried the ivory prize from it's mouth. With some time and effort he now had a little something to help out. Now to check one important detail.

Yup, it's hollow... mostly. He was happy to see this beast's tusk was the hollow type but it still had some unpleasant stuff like nerves and stuff which he could honestly do without. He scooped up some of the beasts own blood from it's torso which ran free with the stuff with it's own horn. Once in the horn the blood quickly became a potent drain cleaner AKA sulfuric acid which he gently swirled around inside. The inside of the horn burned and hissed like someone was cooking steaks inside it. After a short while when the loud sound of acid eating flesh became a bit quieter he figured he'd turn this stuff into something else before it started to eat through the tusk as well. Quickly any and all acid within the horn turned into harmless water.


He dumped the fluid out over the now dead creatures face, the water and what little was left of the inside contents of the horn spilling into it's ugly dark brown fur. Now he had exactly what he wanted: a practical cup for holding fluids. Now, time to get myself a proper drink to celebrate my own ingenuity. He was fairly certain he missed most if not all of what the others were talking about but he didn't exactly care either. Extra luggage was extra luggage, no putting a good spin on that inconvenient truth. He figured the sooner they figure out what the heck was going on the sooner he can get out and back to what he did best: Make loads of money off suckers.

(Taw Kwon Do, what my character practices, is Korean, not Japanese, Zalgo. Nothing to do with ninjas. XD)

(Oh, and to answer a question about my last post, Sunbae is basically a term you use for the most experienced student, who stands at the front when the class in in formation. Sunbae is the less formal term for it, at used only for people you are good friends with, otherwise its Sunbanim.)

Third Person P.O.V.

While she spoke, Aarush began looking around carefully, scanning the bushes and leaves for the gleam of polished wood, which made up the sheathe for her sword.Finding nothing, she frowned anxiously, once again circling the clearing, not noticing Walter's efforts with the horn as she passed by. She prodded at leaves, parted bushes, walked out a few years into the forest... nothing. Still nothing. In a strange place, a dangerous one, she was unarmed. A shiver unconsciously found its way down her back.

Reaching into her pocket, she found the same things Soul had - a tiny bottle of weapon oil and a soft cloth. It has to be here somewhere! Please! She pled in her mind. But after yet another circuit of fruitless searching, her anxiety was through the roof. She was almost about to cry... she hadn't cried in two full years...

"Rush." Soul's faintly, unnoticeably to others, amused voice intoned. She looked to him. He pointed upwards. She looked up at the tree branches, and could faintly make out... the gleam off her dark blue sheathe, caught on the first two branches of the tree, right above her head.

"...Oh." She blinked, then darted forward and launched herself up, catching one of the branches in one hand and tugging it down, falling along with a few leaves as it came loose. She quickly regained her footing, dusting herself off, flushing with embarrassment, and held her sword gently to her chest before strapping it to her waist with a sigh of relief.

Cynthia smiled as the siblings talked. They seemed close, very close. Turning, she saw the huge bear ambling out of the trees, sniffing at the dead creature on the leaf floor. It sniffed the air as well and growled a little. Padding over to Walter, she smiled again. It felt like she was bubbling, even though this was supposed to be an asylum. She wondered what Walter was using the tusk for and looked at him quizzically. "Uh, Walter? What are you doing with the tusk?"

She looked at the new girl. Rush, wasn't it? Rush was clutching a sword sheath, a dark blue covering for some sort of sword. Cynthia wondered how many people here had killed. She shuddered a little, hoping that she wasn't a new target. Cynthia's bubbling joy returned quickly, though and she bounced on her feet to stay awake. The muggy air was slowly lulling her to sleep, but the girl didn't want to sleep until she knew that her throat wouldn't be slit while she slept.

(shortie, lol.)

Rush

A rustling in the brush to my left caught me off guard, and I leapt away and turned to face it, then blinked in astonishment. "... A... polar... bear?" I asked in utter confusion. A polar bear. In the middle of the jungle-type forest around us.

"Ah, I saw it earlier. It's Cynthia's." Soul provided, gesturing to the female that had entered the clearing with him. I quickly nodded in understanding, then cautiously approached the bear.

"Uh... good teddy-weddy... I'm, uh... your friend... please don't eat me..." I said soothingly, holding out a cautious hand to it.

Cynthia smiled as the bear sniffed Rush, the girl who was apparently close to Soul in some way. She stepped over to the massive silver beast and stroked its soft fur as it began to lick Rush, like a dog.

The bear stood on its haunches suddenly, sniffing the air and growling a bit. It ambled into the brush again and came back just as quickly, an elephant-sized deer being dragged behind. The bear dropped the dead animal and huffed. It pushed it in the group's direction, like the bear had just caught them dinner. Cynthia laughed.

The silver animal pulled the carcass towards Rush. It seemed like there was some sort of peace offering being given. Cynthia wondered if this was normal magical beast behavior. She wondered if they should build a fire, to cook the meat. However, Cynthia had nothing to light a fire with. "Who's hungry?" she asked, smiling to herself. These people could definitely be good friends, given time.
