Verminous (V2)

Ssh. This is a library.

0 · 402 views · located in Taiyomashi Temple

a character in “Fusion Fantasy Neo”, as played by Alexander von Koopa

Description

Theme – Master Librarian

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Age: 2000+

Gender: Male

Race: Skeleton, Unknown (Before death)

Alignment: True Neutral

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Physical Description: Verminous is a skeleton in a rotting cloak, the color long since having left it. Interestingly enough, though, even with several features rotted away or having fallen off, it doesn’t look like Verminous could have be the skeleton of a human…

Personality: Verminous prides himself on being an excellent librarian even after years of death. Mellow and generally very quiet, Verminous prefers quiet study and a good read to contact with people; which is strange because usually he enjoys reading books of their life as they get written (see Equipment). Incredibly secretive yet curious to know other secrets, Verminous is a nice enough guy and, though he may not share many details, he’s never outright mean to people even if they’re mean to him.

History: Verminous has never divulged his own history, preferring to read about the history of others. However, from bits of information gleaned from conversations, many have been able to figure out that once he was an adventurer or magician of some kind, but something happened that robbed him of his interest to go out and explore the world or fight baddies. Now he prefers to work at Taiyomashi’s library as the night manager, and hide out in the back with the more ancient and forgotten/forbidden tomes…

Equipment: Verminous uses spellbooks to focus his magic, and has been around for long enough to create grimoires of all shapes and sizes for his own personal use. He also creates books enchanted to write about a person’s life, while they’re still alive – words appear on the page as they go through life and do every single action.

Abilities: Verminous originally got his name from some of his first conjured spells, all having to deal with nature and the control of rats and insects. He has no objections with the name even though he can cast several different kinds of spells, as he prefers those from the nature domain anyway.

Other: To imitate the creaky echo behind Verminous’ voice, his text is purple. Also, while very interested in the lives of other beings and the gathering of information, he often can’t do much to interfere with them – or won’t.

Verminous rolls his eyes. Kids these days can never remember to stay quiet in a library, but at least they were gone. He then went back to reading.

After the long pursuit of Sonic.exe came to a close, Kokonotsu made his return to the Taiyomashi Temple. However, it wasn't long after entering that he saw the skeletal remains of one of the Haven officers that came earlier.

"(!) ...Verminious?" he said while shifting his leer toward the undead figure. "Mind explaining? Did you use your locusts AGAIN?"

"They had no right to be here, and I sincerely doubt they were genuine Haven officers," said Verminous, not looking up from his book. "But I suppose the remains are distracting."

Verminous waved a hand as more locusts flew in, consuming the bones and leaving no trace behind, before vanishing into the ether.

It was getting more and more impossible to talk Verminious out of using such extreme measures.

"...O-Okay, fine, but WHY did he come here? Any idea?" Kokonotsu asked.

"Something about arresting me and two younglings for association with the White Platoon," said Verminous.

"What - ?!" Now Kokonotsu is concerned. If they barged in like this just to arrest some kids just for associating with any one White Platoon member...!

"...Alright. I better have a word with the man in charge over there."

Kokonotsu went upstairs to a chamber reserved for the royals of Yuyake. There, he tapped into a crystal ball, sending a call to Senator Uldritch's phone (think of it as the Yokai version of a phone call).

-----

Meanwhile, the boat from Solum has arrived. On it are Soldier, Demoman, Pyro, Koseki, Hana, Haeru, Claire, and Khorshid. They have the Degroot Dreamer with them as well.

There is no response, indicating rather strongly that Uldritch is uninterested in picking up. Or away from his phone.

"Taiyomashi Temple, one of the mystical places in Yuyake. Now we just need to look for that library and use the pillow." Demoman spoke.

"..." Kokonotsu found this quite rude.

Khorshid was amazed by how much more sea was around the temple.

"This is sooooo cool!" Khorshid squealed. "It's so cool and wet around here! We barely got any of this back in the desert!"

"Get a move-on, everyone! Hup-hup-hup!" Soldier called to the others.

"Okay, we're going out! Don't rush us." Koseki answered Soldier's call. He, his sister, and Haeru walk out of the boat with the Demoman and Pyro following. Finally, the Pyro is happy, and he won't have to deal with water for awhile.

Khorshid happily dashes in alongside Soldier and co. Claire is about to go inside...when she notices something floating in the water.

"Hm - ?"

Upon closer inspection, this seemed to be a young man with shaggy tea-green hair, an eyepatch-band, and body armor. He also seemed to be half-dead.

"!!"

-----

Shortly after, Claire follows the others inside, carrying the half-dead youth in with her.

"(?) I don't recall that man following us aboard," Soldier pointed out. "Is that a spy?"

"That's the thing..." Claire started. "I...found him out in the ocean."

In the library proper, Verminous has still not looked up from his book about library security policy. He's had enough people come up to him yelling about it that he figured brushing up couldn't hurt.

"Hey, is there something wrong?" Koseki asked Korshid, and by the looks of her staring at a floating body, he also took notice, "AHH!!"

"Quit playin' around and-- OH, MY KILTS!!" Demoman screamed, "Why is there a bloody dead body floating in the water?!"

"I don't know, but I really don't want to find out!" Koseki gulped.

"I don't know what he was doing out in the water!" Claire retorted. "Anyway...let's see if we can't find this boy a place with some beds. We may as well use that place for the pillow, as well."

"Affirmative!" Soldier saluted, heading off to yell at meet the medical staff of the temple, forcing getting permission to bring the half-dead Tsan to a bed for treatment. It took a bit more earsplitting talking from Soldier, but the staff relented agreed to let the group use another bed for the Degroot Dreamer.

"But... I really d-d-don't know if w-we should let him use the p-pillow.." Haeru had an idea about it, but it will end badly.

"Bah! He's sleepin' like a wee angel!" Demoman retorted, "He ain't wakin' up yet. If he's in a deep sleep or coma, the dream portal will open up anyway."

"He won't wake up... right?" Hana asked.

"If he did wake up, let Haeru use it." Koseki suggested.

Soldier tucked the Degroot Dreamer under Tsan's head. After a bit, a dream portal shook to life above his head!

"C'est magnifique!" Claire reacted.

"Whoooaaa! It's so...pretty...!" Khorshid said, leaning closer to the portal...and soon getting sucked into it. "(!) Waaaaah - !!"

"(!) Khorshid!!" Claire rushed in after her.

"Don't leave me behiiiiind!!" Soldier shouted as he jumped into the portal.

"Here goes nothing!" Koseki jumps in the dream portal with Hana following in. The Demoman and Pyro did the same. Haeru needs to stay behind and keep an eye on Tsan. Hope he won't wake up; other wise she'll use it instead.

Tsan doesn't look like he's waking any time soon.

Kokonotsu tried once more to contact Uldritch's phone through the crystal ball...
