"Agony is my friend and suffering is my name...do dare to challenge me,to then crumble pathetically bragging mercy"

0 · 480 views · located in Outside

a character in “God of Elements, To Save Daughtris”, as played by TRUE-ASSASSIN

Description

Name: Arkantos ThendgraysImage

Age: 27

Gender: Male

-=-=-=-=-=APPEARENCE=-=-=-=-

Height: 1.80 meters

Weight: 70 kilos

Hair: Black

Eyes: Blue

Physical description: Arkantos appears to be tall enough to look down at an impressive height any dwarf.Thanks to this height he appears more slim,way more slim.
His face is always shrouded by either a mask,helmet or bandages: it is known about his black hairs and icy blue eyes.
His body has few scars and a tattoo representing a snake running through his chest.
If not seen with his armor,Arkantos dresses in an easy way: trousers and shirts are his common clothes.

Cloths and armor: Arkanto's armors variates from mission to mission,preferably changing them often: the first is a plate armor,adept at deviating steel and arrows.Such armor covers his chest,his back.While wearing steel greaves and metal gauntlets.The gauntlets are way more resilient than his armor: it is plated,so that it could deviate swords like a shield.While the armor is able to deviate only if moving on the right time.
On his left gauntlet it is also attached his blade.The armor is silver white,with red lines and blue features.
Lastly,his face is covered by a ghostly helmet.

The second armor is not armored and it unlocks Arkantos,true mastery with the Ki: thanks to an hidden leather jacket and trousers free from steel,making them very comfortable,Arkantos is able to move faster,way much more than with his standard armor.
Always,he has his blade and the plating on his right arm.

Sexual Orientation: Bisexual

Likes:
-The night,in particular the moon.
-The water
-Richness
-Blood

Dislikes:
-The fire in the pure uncontrolled state
-Being underestimated
-Failing the job,thereafter no payment
-Failing any backstabs due to some companions.

Special skills and magic abilities:
Arkantos benefits mainly from the Ki mastery: he likes mastering the key in the way to obtain speed,agility and a little less strength.
Arkantos however also relies himself over little trinkets and special weapons such as:

-Scission blades: Upon contact,two additional smaller daggers flies out from the main,hitting enemies back from the main victim.

-Wind core blades: Daggers enchanted with a small stone,that projects an energy able to maintain the blade hovering for few seconds,before falling.
Such blades are also able to return back,sacrificing their seconds of levitating.

-Poisoned weapons: Occasionally,Arkantos enhances his weapons with toxins,that can slowly eliminate the victim.

A less famous talent of Arkantos is the ability to utilize winds-mana to grant him additional speed for himself or projectiles.
However,it is important to mention that Arkanto's power comes from manipulating his weapons,rendering him not effective if lacking of them.

Faction: Avory,for now

Personality
Image
Cold: there's no better word to describe Arkantos's personality: he never speaks,if not about prices and objectives.He works alone and does everything alone: somebody says he is asocial,that may be true.
A justification for such personality is unknown,perhaps something from his history.
One thing he is renewed for: he is one thing with the job,alias murder,assassin and killer: he does the dirty jobs for the nobles all around Daughtris,from eliminating economic rivals or sabotage them.
In his free time,Arkantos does nothing but reading and training his Ki to the best form possible.
Unlike his fellow assassins he doesn't drink like an insane: he is way more moderate and never showed any interest in girls or any love relationship.
Arkantos learns by himself the best way to manipulate the wild Ki and the mysterious mana,making variations of unknown quantity.

History: What Arkantos remembered about his childhood was nothing but Ash and fire: he saw his house burn with his relatives,caused by some raiding,common enough in the nearby lands.
He traveled,around desolated lands alone,often without resources to then be found by a farmer: he was nearby the Clearwoods.
When he explained to the farmer about his short life.The farmer adopted him,teaching him the ways to cultivate and take care of plants.
Arkantos passed his days,working in the farm,that then gave him the strength adapt to survive in the wilds.
The farmer,whose name is Ciceon,loved Arkantos like a son,aswell as his wife, that always wished for one.
Arkantos grew and eventually started to learn how to write and read,even if he was a farmer,thanks to a friend of Ciceon.
The boy grew fast and at the age of eighteen he left the village,to wander in the lands to test his skills and abilities.
Reaching Avory, Arkantos wasted no time to adapt in the harsh life of the roads.
Eventually he met an assassin.The last one seemed to wish nothing more than blood or at least a good fight and he had it: throwing away his arsenal or dodging it,Arkantos managed to combat his foe,that would become his best friend.
He joined the Guild and started to work the fastest as he could: he begun to work mainly for Pruwas companies: Arkantos's training allowed him to easily slit the neck or disable elements dangerous for the company he's working for.His perfection at killing was enough to be defined an art by his guild member and a neat work from the Factory owner.
Arkantos continued this lifestyle: not often his adopted parents were searching for him.Himself he dared only to stare them from afar...thought he kept sending letters about affections and other themed letters.
Continuosly Arkantos started to want something...more from himself: he started to practice the secret ways of Mana,after exiting the guild.
Arkantos discovered his talent at arms,knowing that returning to his parents would do nothing but waste his talent.
Secretly,he was aiming to destroy thus who burnt down his house and his life,training whenever he was free.
He seemed to have an affinity with the Winds,useful for his job.Such researches also led him to improve his armament,creating from the forges a new armor,daggers and swords.
During the invasion of Verash's offspring,Arkantos's fame was already impressive: with the Artistic name of "Crimson Phantom".
Avory called upon the soldier-for-hire to defend it's walls.
However,Arkantos had to do a little skip to the villages of the outer Clearwood to help his family,that now reached a pretty old age,slaying with his hulking blade the monsters that dared to threaten the village.
When they Reached Avory,Arkantos joined the City's defense.

So begins...

The shadow of a man,walking in the frozen streets of the Morning Avory: this man was dressed,enough to be noticeable to the people around him.
The few that saw him either moved to one of the sides to let the man one pass.His way to move were slow,confident and who had a careful eye can deduct that he already walked over the cobblestone road.
He had a goal: everybody does,but the man's absence of haste suscitated suspicion.
He moved apart who blocked his path with his hand.His face was hidden by an helmet,as he walked toward directed to the Castle of the King of Avory.
He reached the peak,seeing his party: thought he never worked with someone,it was good assembling some élite for the task: Convincing a god is already an impossible task for one mortal,and if he was going to fail he preferred to fall with someone.There was something that man wished: be remembered,as a protector of homes,as an hero and murderer in the same time.

He reached the castle,recognizing his fellow companions: most of them were hooded.He recognized the princess of Avory,thanks to her clothing and her coming out from the castle.
Arkantos slowly reached the group,his body hidden by a dark red cloak. He stopped few inches and kneeled,with all the hood.
During all the procession,there could be heard metal clinking and a voice coming out from the helmet.
"Lord of Avory" Arkantos said rising."I shall respect the deal and as I will respect it you will safeguard the people of Clearwood.Until the people is safe,my blades are yours to command" The man said,and a second later he looked at the group: apart the princess he saw a man,probably her personal guardian,then he passed his eyes over a blue clock and a somewhat fusion between a man and a cat.
"For thus who doesn't know it,am the Crimson phantom.At your services" He said,emotionless.
He had to give a little speech to himself and remind the deal with the Lords of Avory.

The king looked at Rixator "do not let the looks of these people fool you, Rixator. They are experts in what they do" The king said

Bella was a little surprised when Theda greeted Bella.

"oh" Bella startled "the honor is mine"

Bella then pulled Gabe and hid behind him, shy. Gabe looked at Bella behind him and saw her blushing. He then turned to look at Theda.

"I'm Gabe, Bella's personal protector" Gabe said, smiling, as he put his right hand forward for Theda to shake

The king looked at Arkantos "yes I still remember our deal, Arkantos" Some of my stronger men are in Clearwood now, holding off any attacker. If we succeed in finding the Gods and convince them to aid us, peace will be upon Daughtris once again.

"Well it seems that everyone who are supposed to be here, have arrived" He said as he looked around "Shall we go to the airship?"

----------

A long roofless hovering vehicle drove up beside them, picking them up, and dropped them off beside a larger size airship in the parking area next to the take-off area.

Image

----------

The king started brief them about the airship "This is the airship you that is going to carry you on your quest. I assume, if anyone falls off, they would have their own ways to save their own lives. This airship have all the necessary things needed and an A.I for autopilot. Everyone shall have their own bedroom with built in toilet and bathroom" the king looked at everyone saying nothing for a moment then continued "The more time we spend here talking, more of Daughtris is being conquered and maybe destroyed by the battles. Board the ship when you are ready. There is still some people needed to be picked up near Clearwood. It will take a few hours to reach there"

Arkantos looked at Gabe,introducing himself."My pleasure..." Arkantos said,soul less.
Then,as the king announced about a vehicle,a hulking flying fortress shadowed the area below.
Arkantos looked above: his movements were slow,expressing nothing.He was surprised: he never believed that technology could arrive till this point.
They were going to land in the Clearwoods,to grab few allies during the road.
Arkantos said nothing but:"Shall we,gentlemen and Ladies?" Arkantos said,while the winds produced by the engines moved his crimson mantle,showing his body covered in a metal armor.
Arkantos looked at a stair,falling from the skies and arriving down at their feet.
"It's the time...it can be a one way ticket...for my parents and Clearwood my life is nothing" Arkantos never considerated death as an option,if he was going to,he won't be the only one: Coinvincing the gods is the only way to stop the ruthless sons of Venash and save Clearwood and his family.
Arkantos grabbed the stars and climbed on the Colossal flying object.
Duty is duty: aslong as the king safeguards Clearwood,he shall fight for their cause.
Arrived at the top,Arkantos didn't turned to watch below: it could cause some problems: he focused on the interior and started to walk around the ship.
The King mentioned about private cabins with bathrooms.

Rixator paused as he looked to the king and queen, then gazed down as he opened his palm. It was now or never, and he had to ask. "If I may make a request...Once everything is said and done with, I would like access to Avory's archives...I want to know all that I can about my people, and possibly there fate...An entire civilization doesn't just disappear and leave behind empty ruins over a quarter of a country..." The dark Afukiran sighed softly, nodding once to them. He put his hand on top of his hood to keep it from flying off as the massive yet grand airship appeared. It was excellent, and at least he knew they'd be travelling comfortably.

((Sorry about the short post, but I've tried to make a post and been cut off by other posts going up...Three times...I'm tired and I've had a kind of a bad day, so I just said screw it and went with this...))

"If I may make a request...Once everything is said and done with, I would like access to Avory's archives...I want to know all that I can about my people, and possibly there fate...An entire civilization doesn't just disappear and leave behind empty ruins over a quarter of a country..." Rixator asked the king

"Avory's archive? why have you not asked sooner?" The king asked Rixator, curious "but the disappearance of your clan is a mystery even to Avory. You can access and search for information in the archives but I doubt you'll find anything. You best ask the gods when you find them. Maybe they'll know more"

While the king was talking to Rixator, Bella was saying goodbye to the queen. Bella hugged the queen tightly, burying her face in the queens shoulder.

"Please be safe, mother" Bella sobbed and continue "I will find the other gods"

"you be safe too, Bella" The queen said, eyes starting to tear up.

Bella released the queen and wiped her eyes, still sobbing. The queen turned to Gabe and placed her hand on his shoulder

"you are like a son to me, Gabe. Take care of Bella and yourself" She said to Gabe, smiling but the tears in her eyes showed sadness.

"Yes, my queen" Gabe tried to kneel but was stopped by the queen. Instead, Gabe held the queen's hand gently and kissed it. "thank you for your kindness, my queen"

Bella nodded at her mother and walked to the king's side. The king did not notice Bella because he was talking to Rixator.

"father" she called him

the king turned his head to look at Bella.

"I'll miss you, father" Bella said while hugging the king tightly and started to cry again

"there there, my Bella" he continued "you can call me using the phone anytime"

The king nodded at Rixator signaling him it was time to go.

The queen walk beside them as the king held Bella's hand and escorted her to the stairs that would take them up on the airship. She started to climb. Little by little, her hand slipped from the king's. Gabe was beside Bella.

"I love you, father, mother" Bella said to the king and queen

They climbed the stairs to the airship.

Once everyone had got on the ship, the ship started to move and started their journey to Clearwood.

CHAPTER 2


Up on the airship, Gabe accompanied Bella as she leaned againts the railway of the ship, outside. The ship were up in the sky and it flew gracefully.

"are you okey, princess?" Gabe asked Bella

"there is no need to call me princess here, Gabe" Bella said casually to Gabe. "I'm scared, Gabe"

"don't be" Gabe walked beside her while looking to the far away ground "this airship is safe"

"not the airship, Gabe" she explained "the quest" she paused for a moment and continued "finding the gods and convincing them to help us. Not all of the gods are good and kind as Hikari"

"yeah" Gabe said while enjoying the refreshing air blowing in his face "I heard that Ifrit is a badass but we have Hikari. She will persuade Ifrit". Gabe looked up to the sky "after we pick up Garen in Amara near Clearwood, we shall search both the gods of ice and water to help us to access Brunoma's depth to find Ifrit"

"what about Sylph?" Bella questioned "even Hikari don't know where the god of wind is"

"don't worry" Gabe convince Bella "we'll find him" Gabe pushed himself from the railing and turned around "are you ready to talk to the team?"

"yeah... I guess I'm ready"

"I'll summon the team"

Gabe walked to a device on the airship's wall. He pressed the device's screen then a tone played. Gabe pressed another button and announced "Attention, everyone kindly regroup topside. I repeat, kindly regroup topside"

The team arrived on the balcony. Obana was standing silently, looking like he was daydreaming, gazing to the sky. Theda was looking quite nervous or scarred. She had been that way ever since they got up on the ship. They all waited for Gabe or Bella to start saying something.

"you may start, princess" Gabe winked at Bella

Bella looked at Gabe and nodded, starting to get nervous.

"um... hi... I'm Bella" she paused for a moment "as you all know... I am the princess of Avory... reside in me is... some part of the god of light" she gulped, trying not to panic "um... our first destination is a small town... near Clearwake... called Amara... We are going to pick up Garen... a special creature... that has been... appointed by the Hikari herself". Bella wiped sweat that had form on her forehead and continued "I hope we all work together in this quest" she paused, panicking "thank you" she ran behind Gabe.

Gabe continued Bella's speech "After we pick up Garen, we shall head to Lightwake region to search for Sheva, high up in the frozen mountains" He paused to think and continued "That will be all for now. Please make yourselves comfortable in this airship. If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you"

An hour and sixteen minute later, Clearwood region could be seen, They town of Amara was a small dot if looked from the airship.

Gabe was leaning against the rail "we are almost at out destination, Bella" Gabe grinned

Bella ran to the rail and looked "so this is Clearwake" she turned to Gabe and smiled

Suddenly a giant black griffin with purplish black flame covering its body, swooped past, Gabe and Bella. Shocking them both. Bella fell on her bum.

"what was that?!" Bella asked Gabe, surprised

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-HV2IZz9gRxo/T ... riffin.jpg

"it was a griffin" he said while helping Bella up, his heart pounded as a terrible premonition gripped him "let us try and reach Amara fast. I feel like something terrible is about to happen"

in the small hospital in Amara, the Black Griffin rammed into the hospital, emergency room's walls, the walls came down, revealing itself to Garen and Mitei. Rocks flew everywhere, injuring nurses, doctors, and patients. It roared while it's purplish flame burned the ground. It eyed Mitei but couldn't get in the small hospital because of it's giant size. People were screaming and panicking. Everyone ran out of the emergency room screaming "Demon Griffin!"

Some of the guardsman quickly ran to griffin and tried to capture or kill it if they have to.

Up on the airship, Bella and Gabe looked down on the town, Amara. They a few hundred meters from the ground.

"There! the Griffin is on a rampage!" Gabe shouted, informing the team

Bella felt something strange inside her. She could feel where Garen is. The spirit of Hikari guided her "Garen is near where the griffin is" she said to Gabe, scared.

Gabe turned to look at the team "Ready for battle, team! We might need to save the town and Garen!"

The ship flew near the hospital and hovered. There were not enough space to land the airship on the ground. The team would have to jump down, quickly.

"I want to help!" Bella told Gabe

"I shall protect you with my life, Bella"

Both Bella and Gabe jumped down at the same time. Bella levitated herself before landing while Gabe focused his Ki on his legs so that he would not get injured. Gabe landed on the ground with a thud. They dashed to the hospital

(anyone post late, I'll auto... DO NOT AUTO THE GRIFFIN, I SHALL ROLE PLAY AS IT... I SHALL ROLL A DICE AND DETERMINE IF ANYONE GETS HIT)

Rixator nodded once to the king before boarding. It wasn't so much he just wanted to find out exactly what happened, but he hoped to use the information to piece together a viable theory since no one seemed to honestly know. He gave a salute before walking onto the ship with the others, keeping his hood down as it took off. The feeling was exhilirating; he'd never been on an airship, only either land vehicles or on foot. So, he was a bit shaky and somewhat nervous, but he got used to it quickly.

--Later...--

Rixator was in a completely empty room. A white, empty, metal room. He stood in the center, his hands and fingers moving in complex yet fluid motions, a plethora of dark, blackened sand following suit as it formed various waves and designs. It was very beautiful to watch when he used his Mana for recreation, but he only did it in a solitary environment. He enjoyed being around the sand, being in and amongst it. It reminded him of home. The home he once had...A people he never knew...With a solemn sigh, he brought his hands together with overlapping fingers in a sort of clapping manner, the sand bursting as it folded down on itself. After a pause to let the silence set in, the sand slowly drifted back to him, into the folds of his clothes and armor.

He stepped out after a moment. Rixator had his moment of his own medidation, just in time to hear the speaker next to the door. It was that Gabe fellow. "Attention, everyone kindly regroup topside. I repeat, kindly regroup topside" The Afukiran paused before giving a shrug, adjusting his weapons and armor to get comfortable before moving up the stairs and to the outdoor area. Time was a luxury when they had it, but it was of the essence either way. Once the speech was done and over with, he went back to the empty room, now training with his Ki. He'd have to be careful to not wreck the room with his power.

--Later...--

Rixator had done the Ki workout for about an hour, and it was slowly getting boring, he got up and headed back up onto deck, deciding to check out the area. So this was Amara of Clearwake. It was so different. The scenery was different from his dark desert home, but he enjoyed being able to travel. And then that beast swooped in. It was some sort of sickly looking griffin, and it rammed itself into a below hospital. Finally, some excitement! He ran forward, leaping off the railing as he summoned up a thick cloud of sand, riding it down to the hospital at a high speed, drawing the unique blade from his hip and turning it over in his right hand. Now, things were getting interesting.

When Arkantos decided to go up,to take some fresh air,a voice spoke from nowhere: "Attention, everyone kindly regroup topside. I repeat, kindly regroup topside"
So Arkantos did: he moved up with his armor to the Balcony.First mission approaches.
The Princess of Avory started a speech:

"Um... hi... I'm Bella,as you all know... I am the princess of Avory... reside in me is... some part of the god of light.Um... our first destination is a small town... near Clearwake... called Amara... We are going to pick up Garen... a special creature... that has been... appointed by the Hikari herself.I hope we all work together in this quest,thank you"

The Princess spoke with a soft voice: Arkantos could also recognize some shy in the speech,but it was fair enough acceptable.
He smiled:"Whenever you want,Princess of Avory" Arkantos said,looking at everybody like searching for a confirm.
At the end of the speech Arkantos moved to one of the angles of the Airship and leaned against it,with his helmet on his hand.
He took few breaths,then a Griphon came and he had to grab the metal bars to don't fall.He saw the Princess fall,while Gabe helping her up
Arkantos ran to help them,trying to demand also what happened.
"A Gryphon" Arkantos was thinking while putting on his helmet,hiding his hairs.
He saw the princess look down.Arkantos did the same and saw the creature rampage over the small town.
"I'm on it,Guardian of the Princess..." Arkantos said while walking down the stairs as fast as he could to the entry.
Then an idea flashed: He was various thousands of feet above the ground.
He took a breath: time for testing devilish machineries.
He opened the door,as the crew remained shocked.Arkantos looked below,noticing that the Ship was decreasing the height.
"Ah,well who cares... Arkantos checked that his equipment was ready.When he attached everything he dropped himself from the ship.
He felt stupid: couldn't he wait the Airship to land!? Anyway,what's done is done: Arkantos was testing a "gift" from Harley,the friend of the Assassin's guild.
To his descriptions,the device when triggered would let him fly like a bird.
When Arkantos triggered the mechanism,a series of wooden skeletons started to move,forming a Deltaplane,slowing the fall and possibly plan strategic lands.
So he did,he aimed at a building not far from the Gryphon and he landed.
A second trigger,and the False wings patched back in his armor. He smiled,as humanity made another step to domination.
He ran over the roofs,reaching the Gryphon.
He looked at the creature: Jumping on the shed and then harassing it with daggers? He found the strategy reasonable,so he did: thanks to a mage and the Gabe and a Dragon?
Arkantos looked at the Creature with a little stunned tone,but then returned to himself.
"Nothing here,but I'd investigate under the debris."Arkantos said,returning to his normal stance.
-=-=-=-=-
Sylverana was sitting on her throne,with her guitar.She was practicing over a new composition of her.
After a few sounds,she smiled and wrote down on a paper.The Demons that were attempting at invading Lightwake's villages were falling like empty bottles,thanks to Avalon's magical turrets,demons-like under Sylverana's control and her feared Legion of the Maiden of Shadows.
Sylverana was reading an Opera of one of the few artists of Lightwake,when Drakthorn,king of Aces entered in the Throne room.
He knelt and Sylverana told him to rise.
"The Forces of Demotia are under attack by the Almighty Eclipse,Maiden of Shadows." Drakthorn said,with an enigmatic voice,that would throw men in an insane fear.
"Ah,thanks for the Information Drakthorn,son of Isildun: You and the Legion will go before,and summon the floating domain Avalon.
Drakthorn knelt once again and left the room,in a spectral silence.
An hour later,a spirit entered in the Throne room.
"Lady of Shadows,the Legion is ready to move" The little imp said,while looking at the white floor.
"Hmmm...so be it" Sylverana closed her book and moved out of the room.
In the Courtyard of Avalon the sixteen elites of Sylverana were standing on a gigantic blue rune. When Sylverana entered,they dropped down to the knees.
With a simple move of her hand the elites rose and stood immobile.
Sylverana started to sing mystical words,while the rune below the Legionaires started to glow bright.A cold gust was filling the air,as slowly the body of the Elites started to disappear in the winds.
Their face were made of stone,expressing nothing but will to obey: they disappeared with the wind
...in the nearby woods of Demotia,a strange gust was running through it's leafs: the animals ran from it,as the wind's touch turned rock in ice and ground in snow.
When the Legion of the Maiden of Shadows landed,the demons looked at them gazed in a known terror: the sixteen moved and slaughtered the demons around the walls of Demotia.
The Brightshadow Swordsmen and the Nightarrow Marksmen were harassing the infantry: eight of them simply razed down the triple of their numbers,while the Pillars of Plague were waging potent poisons and infernal chemists to eliminate troopers.
The Leviathan queen was,in the meanwhile,devouring and restoring the morale of the Legion with screams,war cries and blood.
The Legion worked to clear an entire area: enough space to summon the Flying fortress Avalon.Only one Marksman died and that was going to be replaced as soon as the maiden arrives.
The presence of Eclipse's legion was clear: even if they eliminated the area Eclipse's troopers were overwhelming the islands.
The Legion placed the four Obelisks.These objects seemed to be inactive.Drakthorn muttered something.Again,the Obelisk didn't move.
But in Lightwake,the citizen of the town under Sylverana's protection started to emit weird sounds: a Black shear of winds started to devour the building,as it turned into an hurricane: a giant being of winds,started to move North.
The Legion moved aside,while the Flying castle materialized and crushed the Obelisks.
the Legion was tired: eliminating hordes of demons are an effort: the only quirk of the Legion is that ,except few, can't stay far from Avalon: it's because they are spirits and they require a flux of mana to survive.Sylverana dotated the King of Aces and the footmen with mana batteries,to avoid consumption. The Castle was visible to Demotia in somewhat ten minutes.
Sylverana came down with her black dress and looked at the gates.The Guardsmen attempted to pierce her with arrows,but they failed as the arrows were deviated by forces around her.
"Am here for peace,aid you against the Demons of Eclipse!" Sylverana screamed,hoping that the men would understand.

CHAPTER 3


The sheriff of the town just arrived after word of griffin and dragon reached him a few minute ago.

Image

"what happened here?!" He shouted so that everyone would hear him.

Almost half of the small hospital is destroyed and a torn carcass of a griffin was in the middle of the square.

One of the guardsman quickly inform the sheriff "it was a strange griffin sir. A black griffin with black flames coming out of it's body" he pointed to the group "These group killed it with amazing skills sir"

The sheriff examined the group quickly

"is that the princess of Avory?" his eyes larges. He turned to his men "scout for any injured civilians"

The sheriff walked up to Bella which was healing some injured guardsman "what brings the princess to the small town of Amora in this time of chaos?" he said loudly so that Bella would hear him. The voice made Bella turned around and look at the sheriff. Gabe was beside her.

"we were just passing by to pick up a person" Gabe said to the sheriff

The sheriff turned to look at Gabe and examined him from top to bottom "you are her protector, am I correct?"

"yes" Gabe said confidently

"I was told that you helped kill that beast. I, representing for Amora, thank you for that" the bowed slightly and continued "I heard that there was a dragon. Did it flew away?"

"No it did not. The dragon was an ally. He changed shape and is sitting there, with his legs crossed" Gabe pointed to Garen and noticed that he is talking to a person with a creature as a hand.

"So the threat is no more?" the sheriff asked

Gabe shook his head

The sheriff nodded to Gabe "if there is anything you need, please don't hesitate to ask". He then turned to the princess and bowed "it was great meeting you, princess". The sheriff then joined his men searching for injured civillians.

"let's examine the griffin" Bella said to Gabe

The silent Arkantos moved down from the roofs.He looked at the party and the dragon turning in an humanoid being...
..Because that being was something way more than human.
He walked over the dead creature and looked at it,to then remove the knives and daggers wasted to harm the creature,if it really did.
After he gathered all the twenty,he moved apart and sat on a barrel,with a piece of cloth,intending to clear his dagger from the blood to avoid damage and bad looks.
Then a man came and wondered about the situation.
Passively,Arkantos was looking at the scene: he saw Gabe and the man discuss about what happened,and when Gabe pointed at the group he was sharpening the edge of his blades.
"So...we have a dragon,a shard of the Goddess of Light,an insane assassin,a cat-man,a Guardian and a poetic warrior...Hmmm I like this team"
Arkantos looked ahead,seeing a man falling on the knees,praying for something: he wanted to join the quest to convince the gods to fight the Children of Venash.

"Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaassssssssseeeee take me with you Tony just led me in circles i don't think he wants to kill evil, you're the best lead i have to destroy evil, i promise to make sure Tony is good, if he isn't you can leave me to rot, just give me a chance pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaassssssssseeeee, I'll do anything".

He saw the princess tempted to let the Stranger in the team,but here comes the guardian that blocks.In the tone of Gabe Arkantos recognized a little of irritation: he never saw Gabe getting angry,and it seems to get bad if he gets angry.
Arkantos stood up walking forward without saying anything.Rixator,wanted to burn the beast: even if Arkantos was a backstabbing traitor,the sense of honor comes before everything.
He wanted to further see the Gryphon.In truth tales of Clearwood told about such winged lions flying around: thus who had the luck to see a Gryphon,would enjoy a life of joy and happiness.
He heard a lady,saying that a man named Gen turned this winged beast in a wicked.
But this Gryphon was way different: he may turned the life of many in a desperate run for life.Arkantos gazed the beasts and muttered something,before returning to the main quest:
The probably future companion of adventure.
He made out two ideas: The man is insane and is seeking death...he doesn't even know what he is going to face!
Arkantos joined the group,only for the safety of Clearwood and for that he will fight.

Bella placed a hand on Gabe's back. Gabe turned to see Bella shook her head, signaling him that she was alright. Gabe replied with a nod. Bella then turned her head to face Garen.

"The god of light told me to seek an ally here. I assume it is you... is it?"

"While I'm sure you all might not agree with my methods, do not think any less of me. Where I am from, the sands aren't fit for burial, so we use catacombs. And those that aren't suitable for the catacombs...Too mangled body or the corpse is tainted...We send them off in a funeral pyre and spread their ashes to the wind and sand." Rixator explained blatantly, folding his arms and looking to the group. He had grown up knowing and working with animals just as much as people, though all native to the badlands and deserts. Such noble creatures as the griffon were unknown to him for the most part since he rarely saw them, even in his travels. "All I'm doing is suggesting the latter as an honorable send off. And no, no one is eating this griffon." He eyed the one now at the princess' feet. "Study the beast as you wish to any of you who wish to do so. But once you are done, we decide how to get rid of the body, if we choose to do so. I stand by my choice." He gave a nod before yanking the hood back into position and concealing his face once again.

"how about we let..." Gabe paused and looked at the person with binded hand, just realizing he did not know the person's name and that they all had not introduced themselves.

"My name is Gabe, a royal protector of Avory and beside me is the one and only princess of Avory" he waved his hand at the group and continued "we are on a quest to try and gain peace back in Daughtris" he turned to look at the party "while we are here discussing about what to do with the dead griffin, the children of Venash are colonizing Daugtris and killing people in the process".

Gabe turned to Bella and signaled her with his head to follow him. Bella understood and followed gabe a little further from the group.

"so should we let the guy join?" Gabe whispered while looking around, careful not to let anyone hear.

Bella looked a the person with binded hand for a second and turned to look at Gabe "I don't know..." Bella said looking worried "it's up to you, Gabe" she whispered

"okay" Gabe whispered

They both walked back to the group.

"ehem" Gabe cleared his throat "shall everyone introduce themselves?" .

-after everyone introduce themselves

"Okey, Ringo, our quest may involve fighting with monsters, if you cannot fight, you will only be dragging us down... If that happens, we shall leave you" Gabe then turned his head to the dead griffin "as for the griffin, if you can, you may feed on only it's dark energy and leave the body as it is and the guardsman of Amara will take the job of burying it. If you cannot feed on the dark energy without taking the body, then leave it. The guardsman shall see to the dead creature" Gabe paused for a moment and continued "now do what you must, Ringo"

Gabe turned to look at Mitei and Reiko "you have incredible magic, Mitei" he smiled and continued "We would appreciate if you and your twin would help us on our quest"

Gabe turned to Garen "will you help us too, Garen?"

Lastly, Gabe turned to look at Bella. Bella smiled, and nodded at Gabe, impressed.

Gabe announced over introducing the team to the future team mate,Arkantos rises from the barrels and stood up not far from Gabe.
Arkantos cared not: instead he seemed to dislike the new joiner,he was a little strange however what was separating him from fantasy right now? Gods,Invasions...this is nonsense!
A flash of wondering appeared in Arkantos's mind.
He walked toward Gabe and touched his shoulder.
"Gabe,where are Obana and Theda?" Arkantos said,while removing his grip from his shoulder.
Then,Arkantos moved ahead slowly."If you search me,am in the Air ship" He muttered,turning his head toward Ringo,as he walked.
In truth he didn't know where the Air ship was: He is going to discover it,thought.

Before Arkantos could reach the city gates he heard a somewhat roar of suffering.
He tumbled,instinctively and turned,seeing an hulking opal-scaled dragon: "This day simply doesn't end... Arkantos said,while looking around searching for a strategical place to climb and move around,attacking the dragon.
He saw the citizens running desperately: first the citizen,then the dragon.
He looked at the crowd: the best way was probably to bring them outside the walls.Arkantos moved on the roofs.
"Hey! Move! Outside quickly!" Arkantos said,jumping from a balcony and leading the people outside: it was a desperate act,sometimes the difference from reality and fantasy is so thin...
...the citizens were now outside,and Arkantos was thinking for a way to attack the dragon:"The weapon"
Legends says that the dragon scales are impenetrable: maybe it's true,but there was no time to test.The scales should be as hard as iron,perhaps finding a weak uncovered spot between the scales and pierce it would deal some damage.
But in this way it is going to take ages to kill one,if he was lucky.if Unlucky he'd be squished like a bug.
After all there was only one dragon: that "Ally of the Hikari",a Draconian creature.Perhaps calming it is a way.
Arkantos equipped his main blade,not to use it but there was a secret within the tempered steel of the weapon: it had some "holes",able to release daggers,"teeth" like his friend named it,aswell as two thin blades,made to mainly destroy circuits of Pruwas's advanced security.
It is of same use,anyway: pierce the dragon's advanced security.
Arkantos took out the long and pointy metal blade from his main blade and looked at it for one second: the beauty of the steel wasn't comparable to nothing,but perfection itself.
He placed the main blade on his back,and took out a little pot,containing a white liquid.
He opened a slot in the handle and poured the liquid.The sword is going to work like a syringe: once he will pierce through the flesh and pressed the bottom,the extract will cool the anger of the dragon: if the god of light wanted it dead,then a swing of Axe over the neck of the Dragon is going to be enough.
He jumped on the roof and looked at the beast,focusing (charging)
(Theorically now I have to drop two dices? *Ruins the house* Two dices! *Rolls them* 8)
-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Sylverana was sitting on her throne made out of stone,with her guitar between her hands.
She waited out of Demotia's walls,for over ten minutes receiving nothing but few arrows and gunfire: she decided to move in,and plan various strategies,ways to beat down Eclipse.
Voices of Dark Gryphons reached her ears,and interested she started to read about those winged lions.
Discovering their nature,a deep sense of wondering filled Sylverana: who released a Gryphon in Daughtris?
Anyway,on such matters she'd be back soon: she was starting to forget about her brother Gen: the scientist that roamed in the towers of Pruwas.
"Drakthorn!" The bodiless spirit entered in the room and knelt before Sylverana.After he rose,Sylverana started to speak.
"We both know that this war doesn't comprehend two generals,but an infinity number: One of the most "important" however seemed to shut down...travel to Pruwas,take whatever you need and investigate upon the missing of Gen,the Scientist.
The spirit nodded,as the floor started to move and turned in an armor: the spirit possessed it and walked away.
The floor the repaired itself,thanks to some magic founts.

Drakthorn entered in the Below-ground levels of Avalon: he looked at a myriad of creatures dwelling down there: he was carrying two cylindric container,to capture and utilize Slimes,parasites that devours their hosts beginning from the brain.After laying the eggs,they usual get out and search again for creatures to waste.
Drakthorn opened the Brass cylinders,as they started to draw the slimes inside the recipients.
Then,utilizing the same spell that brought him to Demotia,Drakthorn entered in Pruwas: the clocked figure walked around,asking to the inhabitants if they ever heard of a certain "Gen".
Gained the information,Drakthorn reached the binder tower and broke the cylinders,releasing the slimes to enter in the tower.

It seems that Garen has lost control of himself. He did not defend or evade any attacks thrown at him but attacks blindly at everyone. Ringo is clinging on to Garen by Tony's bite trying to absorb the dark energy that has overwhelm him. Mitei's firebolt arrow hits Garen's body but the hard dragon scale manage to absorb most of the damage. Theda's blinding light had temporarily blinded Garen. The blinded Garen breathes fire on everything. Bella's protection shield had taken lots of damage and is starting to break. Suddenly Garen stops and electricity overwhelms his body, getting ready to do a stronger attack to everyone.

Rixator saw what was happening as the attacks landed, and now he took action. With a simple step, he was off, a dark blur that could only be registered for a split second to the untrained eye. Without the weights, his Ki assisted speed and agility were at an inhuman level, and he knew just how to utilize this. Speeding forward and around, he began his movements while summoning up sands in great amounts, forming length-wise before turning to a chain sort of material, the sands compacted and hardened just as before with the sand drill. Moving along different lines around the others and the rampaging Garen, he worked the sand chains in a complex manner, seeming to go in random lines and such. However, upon a bird's-eye view of it, he was forming a pattern; a crest to be presice. After a moment he soon stood in front of Garen, hands together with the end of the chain clutched between them. "Ancestral desert winds and great sands of the noir, grant me the strength to bring down this foe!" He muttered before shouting. "Everyone, braces yourselves!!" With that warning, Rixator finished his mark by staking down the end of the chain. "Dark Art of the Sands! Devouring Enboundment!" The chains began to rattle and soon erupted upward. If successful, they would not only bind down Garen, but also possibly cancel out the lightning since this particular trapping technique had the ability of consuming energies.

...

--2 Hours Earlier--

As a warm breeze blew and the sun's rays finally seeped in through the shattered stained-glass windows, a pair of ivory eyes opened in the shadows at the farthest corner of the ruined cathedral. A massive figure shifted and soon stood on four legs, stepping out toward the southward facing hole from which the beast entered and exited its home. Its scales could be seen through as the colors of the lights seemed to dance. Moving into the sunlight, Bahamut stood on his hind legs and stretched out a bit. The immense dragon turned and moved amongst the ruins of what was once a magnificent city, his eyes glancing to the castle ruins in the distance. Today was the day he'd begin his destruction of Daughtris, whether those infernal gods liked it or not.

After finding the run he had used for getting a running start on fast paced, long distance travel, he stood at the end and faced the cliff. The point from which Bahamut would leap and become airborne was a cliff side at the coastal line. It was not a slant or steep side; it was a sheer rock wall that ran perpendicular to the crashing waters below. With a bellowing roar that shook what one could assume was once farmland, the mighty dragon sprinted forward, at the edge in no time and soon in the skies. His first destination was the major cities and such of the country/region called Clearwood. A forest land. Perfect to start off strong with his path of destruction.

...

--Present time--

By now, Bahamut was well into Clearwood territory, and was already burning down portions of the mighty forests with his Dragon Fire. Internally, he was laughing at the misfortune he was causing many people and creatures, but he was too focused to give any thought to how hilariously futile the struggles of these people were. The dragon had sources and had even scouted some of these lands himself, and he knew now he was fast approaching Amara, a major town in Clearwood. In the distance, a little ways away from the town was some sort of massive, metal abomination. Airships they were called. Petty creatures desiring to rule the skies as dragons, harpies, griffons, and other flying creatures do. With another bellowing roar that traveled and echoed for miles, Bahamut heralded his own approach with his unmistakable call. The beast that was supposedly just a myth was here. Very real. Very large. And very, very dangerous

CHAPTER 5



Bella turned her head back upon hearing a roar from the faraway skies

"What was that?" Bella's heart jumped "Did you hear that?!" she asked Gabe, shouting, so that he could hear her.

Gabe's wounds are still in the process of healing. He was holding his shield forward, still blocking Garen's attack from harming Bella "hear what?" Suddenly Garen's fire became stronger. Gritting his teeth, Gabe started to push harder so that the fire won't pass through.

Then the nightmare appeared, Bahamut, the legendary dragon. It's gigantic wings blocking the sun light from shining down on them, drawing people to look up by curiosity. Gabe was stunned at the sight. His mouth fell open but no words came out. He only heard stories and seen drawing of the being from story books when he was a small child... but now... he is seeing it with his own eyes. Gabe wasted no time and cast the most powerful magic barrier that he can conjure.

"I summon the Valkyries, Shield-wielding Sisters of Battle! Protect us from harm!" Gabe shouted and 6 Valkyries spirits appeared, aligning themselves, creating a Hexagon sigil barrier.

Gabe grabbed Bella's arm and shouted "Lets run!"

Bella was shocked. Gabe pulled her and they both ran to the woods, trying to get out of the Bahamut's sight.

"how many monsters attack will there be today?!" The sheriff questioned loudly "run people or Amara! Save your family!" He knew that Amara couldn't be saved. People ran as fast to the woods as fast as they can, leaving all their tree houses to be destroyed by the Bahamut. The sheriff saw one of his men getting ready for a charge at the legendary nightmare. "Stop! We have no chance of winning!" The guardsman heard the sheriff yelled and stopped. He nodded and ran away following all the other townsman.

Gabe pulled Bella, running away to save their lives. Bella turned back while still running, her hands in Gabe's.

"Gabe!" Bella shouted at Gabe to get his attention "what was that?"

Gabe turned to Bella "I'm not sure" he paused to take his breath and continued "but I think it's the monster from the storybooks we use to read when we were kids"

"but that's just a story to scare little children, Gabe... A fairytale" Bella let go of Gabe's hand and stopped, taking her breath.

Gabe stopped and saw the others following. "we need get to the airship, Bella"

"and why am I running?" Bella panted while taking her staff out of her magical satchel. ”Fly! Float! Staff, take flight!” The staff hovered and Bella sat on it sideways "lets go!"

Bella flew quickly using her staff while Gabe dashed by casting wind magic to his legs. When they reached the airship, Bella flew up while Gabe climb the dropped anchor by running up on it, fast.

"Lets go people! Get on, fast!" Gabe called the others from up the airship

"It's the time" Arkantos skipped from roof to roof,reaching a considerable high place: he looked at the target: the crazed Garen that was rampaging.
He looked for any spots,unarmored to intoxicate the dragon with the powerful sleeper.
Arkantos was preaparing to lead the final leap to reach the scales,before a shadow covered the town.
A cloud? No,it was moving too fast: Arkantos moved his eyes up and saw another Dragon-kind above the town: Black scaled terrorizing.
Luckly he brought out the citizens! Arkantos moved the priority target to the new Dragon,seeing that Garen was taking conscience.
He ran down to his allies,trying to regroup.
Bella and gave was running and successively flying to the Airship: Arkantos looked at the beast lands,provoking a shockwave that trembled the building: Arkantos nearly fell down but in a matter of seconds he regained balance: he looked at the creature,big: he never saw something more bigger and fearful.
A ring of fire surrounded the dragons: the blue fire's heat stunned Arkantos for a while.
Paralyzed,Arkantos looked at the two creatures for few seconds before running back,attempting to plan a strategy: mathematically it was impossible to Garen to win the new creature.
Neither him: impossible,since he is an human.Plus the ring of fire was blocking him from reaching Garen: the best thing to do was to reach the Airship and plan an attack.

Arkantos ran toward the Airship,guided by nothing but casualty: Arkantos entered inside the massive fortress,hasting to reach the Princess.
He saw Bella not far from the entrance,followed by the brave Gabe.
"Garen....is trapped....with that behemoth!" Arkantos said,taking breath from the run: was it three or four hours of intense actions?
Hoping that the princess would plan a way to free the dragon Arkantos adjusted his swords and took some moments to recover peace in mind.
The Dragon was an important ally: losing it probably means losing the chance to convince the Gods.
Plus,who was the Dragon that trapped Garen!?
It could speak Arkanto's language fluently,in an advanced way also: the presence of the Behemoth simply breaks the standard rules of nature.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Drakthorn looked at the smiled filter inside the bricks of the tower: few seconds after,a woman approached to Drkathorn.

"Hello sir,can I help you?"

The woman said,smiling at Drakthorn: the spirit had an illumination: his right hand,under the clock,was open and holding something invisible like some nets to manipulate puppets.
"In truth...there is one thing I'd like to ask...."The voice of Drakthorn was trying to imitate the human's: it was somewhat some fail,some success.
"...Lord Gen son of Venash is inside the building?" Drakthorn said,while the gray slimes could be seen slipping out from the bricks.
Utilizing the lady as tool of espionage was Drakthorn's plan: the Slimes could easily enter in her body and consume her life-force and gather direct control.
After that,stealing the plans would be a child's game.
The slimes produced a reptilian sound,while jumping on the Receptionist (Dice roll: 10(Hit?)).

Meanwhile,Sylverana was reorganizing the Legion of the Maiden of Shadows: if she'd keep sending the same units the enemy could easily find the weak spots: thinking about improving her legion by making some variants was the only possibility to avoid this nasty situation.
She was walking up and down the throne room: after consuming another prisoner sent from Lightwake,Sylverana's mind was navigating in the fantasy to discover possible variants:
An undead dragon? No: killing a dragon was excessive....
Plus,she was thinking about expunging Demotia: first with the Ambassadors.
The Maiden ordered to two Brightshadow Strikers to accompany a Spirit adept at dealing with peace.
She looked atop the Pinnacle of her flying fortress,hoping to conquer Demotia and the help of the Demons-like.

"We have to do something!" Bella shouted. The bahamut had flew away. In town, most of the people got away but some were dying. Some were trapped in flames and some were covered in acid, screaming in pain as their skin and flesh melts. The fear had pushed back Bella's shyness, she was speaking clear and loud but her tears were falling from her eyes. With shaky arms, Bella raised her staff. "I summon the holy spirit! The mother of all the light! The hope that shines through all darkness! Hikari! Lend thy kiss!"

Suddenly a bright light appeared in the middle of the sky. The light then turned into a large woman. It was the goddess of Light, in person, golden armor glistening under the sun.

Hikari raised her hand up to the sky. A light then a gigantic shining spear made of light appeared. She hurled the spear straight down to the center of the town. The impact of the spear made the wind move around furiously, then it burst into a blinding a giant light that covered everything. After the light was gone, so did the fire and acid. people wounds healed in a blink of an eye but the dead remained as they are. high up in the sky, Hikari closed her eyes and looked away. Pain filled her heart. She then turned to look at the Bahamut which was far away. Only a small black dot can be seen from where she currently is. She gritted her teeth.Your time shall come, Bahamut

On the airship's deck, Bella was not moving. Her eyes started to roll back and she collapsed. "Princess!" Gabe quickly ran to her just in time to catch her.

Hikari hovered down to the airship and landed beside Hikari. She looked at Gabe then at Bella. Hikari knelled down so she could stroke Bella's hair gently. She then got up and looked up to the rest of the group.

"The Goddess of Light herself...how can I serve you" Arkantos muttered leaning against a wall.
Garen returned on the Air ship,just when Arkantos finished the sentence.
He looked down: few seconds ago it was burning,an agony that struck Arkantos's heart.Where he grew was burning in acid and fire: the spear of the Goddess rejuvenated the lands and healed the wounded in a matter of seconds: Arkantos felt grateful toward the Goddess: but the Dragon's rampage must stop,else the King's trooper would have a bad time at stopping the Dragon from turning to ashes the Outher Clearwood,home of Arkantos's adoptive parents.
Arkantos's eyes were looking at the creature preparing to fly toward Avory.
"We have to stop it...." Arkantos said,looking down where once the creature was standing.
"Ideas?" Arkantos asked slowly turning his head toward Hikari,Bella,and Gabe.
He'd do everything to save Clearwood way more than the rest of Daughtris.
Arkantos was full of doubts: perhaps they could utilize Garen as foe against the Dragon and then harass the behemoth with all the firepower they had.
Arkantos had an headache,in thinking how to defeat the foe: he did his job,now it's the turn of the Goddess of Light to find a way to defeat the Dragon.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-
"How...unpleasent" Drakthorn said,looking at the slime that failed to attack the receptionist.His right hand slowly formed a fist and the slime melt down,releasing an evident black orb.
After a few seconds the Orb dissipated,and Drakthorn looked at the Lady."Perhaps It would be a good idea to don't judge persons from the aspect...." Drakthorn said,rising his head toward the Receptionist: two spheres came out when the woman's wing sprouted and they were releasing a soft blue light.
"Madame,the attempt failed...." Drakthorn said to Sylverana that was sitting on her throne: thanks to a mirror attached inside Drakthorn's helm,Sylverana could see and speak with Drakthorn with Telekinetic.
"Hmpf....not your fault,but the slimes....was hoping to put hands on Gen's plans...do whatever you think right: kill her or run to Demotia" Sylverana said at the mirror in front of her.
Time was short: plus in a matter of seconds he'd be overwhelmed by Spheres and other attacking units.
"I don't have time for games..." Drakthorn said,while his hands gathering mana: after few seconds few winds were running through the desolated ways of Pruwas,reaching and running around Drakthorn.The winds were endarkened by unknown forces: Drakthorn released the grip and the winds blowed a shockwave all around Drakthorn: the gathering of energy was obvious,aswell as the focusing of it (Charging).
"Faster Drakthorn...." Sylverana said,noticing the attack Drakthorn was attempting.
"I said the plans,not blow away Pruwas..." Sylverana said,while looking surprised by Drakthorn's destructive forces.
Drakthorn's wind were released flying away (Charge canceled),to then return and cover him."So be it" The winds returned and attacked Drakthorn,while his body was dissolving in the thin air,returning to the Fortress.
(Well,i utilize a website for diceroll ;D.(Now,when Drakthorn pushed and recalled the winds,he did pushed in and out something: I'm going to roll for the intensity >7: Deals average damage and stops charging <7: Doesn't deal damage and stops only one charge)*5th Symphony*DICE ROLL:.....Next episode Nawr joking.DICE ROLL: 8))

Hikari's and Bella's spirit are one. Hikari eccessed Bella's thought to gain information on the group. She now knows the names of everyone that Bella knows.

"you alone will not serve much, Arkantos... you all need to stand as a team" she said while looking at Arkantos, replying his question earlier, then continued "Currently, I alone don't have the power to stop Bahamut. The ancient dragon is almost as strong as two of the Gods combined" She paused and looked at everyone "with only this one airship, we can't hope to do anything for now" She walked to the edge of the airship's deck and gripped the railing and stood there for a moment, staring where Avory is, before continueing to talk "We can only hope that Avory's forces can hold until one of my sibling is found..." Hikari walked to Garen with a frown "You need to have better control of yourself, Garen. Don't waste the powers of the artefact that I led you to"

Some parts of Clearwood is still burning from the Bahamut's flame. far away, the main city of Clearwood, its castle stood and was fortunate enough to be untouched. Suddenly, a familiar energy wave could be felt by Hikari. Water can be seen rising high, reaching the skies, multiple times from different parts of Clearwood, putting out the flames.

Hikari turned around quickly to the group, looking surprised and spoke "I can sense Undine nearby" She looked down from the airship and scanned the area with her eyes "there!" she pointed to a great waterfall. "you all must go there, quickly". The god of light then bursted into many tiny lights and floated back into the unconscious Bella.

"Atleast advice the King of Avory about the incoming danger" Arkantos said,before climbing down the stairs to his room.
Tiring day: it wasn't over yet Arkantos knew it,so it was wise to waste the few moments of tranquillity before dropping on the battlefields and drain blood.
He lied down on his bed,the metal pieces not far from him: See,it is going to be a matter of minutes till another mission call.
His breath was slowing down: first time the day,first time lying on the bed of the Hulking Airship.Yes,the airship how does it fly?
Arkantos's mind is a flurry of ideas: what they were going to face,his role in the team and the components of it: A dragon....a legend that comes true? Or is it way more the opposite?
He was relaxing: his muscles were like granite after all the moving and the dragon coming down.
He smirked: it isn't a job for mortals,stopping the children of a god on a rampage to gain the lands.This is why they are here: invoke the gods for help.
Where were they going to start? From the frozen winds,Sylph? Arkantos had a bare ideas,thought he loves stories way more than others.

He stood up after somewhat ten minutes: he guessed out that the day was too moved to sleep: too dangerous also.
He walked around the room and washed his face and then dressed up to go seeing the metal world (Alias the Airship for those who haven't got a poetic interpreter).
He walked slowly in the decorated corridors of the Airship: if such buildings could fly thanks to some Energy,humanity would have no limits.
Thinking and walking in the desolated streets (corridor) of the Airship.
The sound of the engine was accompanying him around: he was still cooling down from the recent battle,the horror of Amanda being pulverized by an ancient being.
After somewhat a quarter of hour,he returned on himself and looked around: he cursed the Airship for being way too big.
He walked back to the rooms,thought standing outside,like waiting for someone or something.

Drakthorn entered in the throne room and was thinking alongside with Sylverana a way to down Gen: the infiltration failed,till that Sylverana thought two things: either she personally cover the issues or Crush down Pruwas.
Both eliminated the idea: there wouldn't be nothing to reign,so Sylverana was preparing to land on Pruwas and somehow enter in Gen's Laboratories.She doesn't remember since they saw each others,at least she doesn't: if he doesn't the cover is going to be easier.After uncovering the secrets of Gen,Sylverana was going to utilize them somehow.
Few rumors runned in the chamber: the ghosts populating it were whispering about the Ancient Bahamut unsealed;the dragon of eternal wrath was unleashed on Daughtris and was rampaging over the Clearwoods.
Sylverana had a brilliant illumination: Demotia was after all shut down by unknown causes,moving to Clearwood,would make the things more exciting.
But,first the job and then the games.Sylverana moved over the runes.
"Move Avalon to Clearwood,meanwhile: around....tea time I expect this fortress over Pruwas and at Dusk at Clearwood" Sylverana said,dressed in a magnificent black dress,with many black roses on it and a way bigger hat over her head.
Her face was hidden under a beautiful black veil,representing floral motives.
Sylverana smiled,as her body turned in winds.Drakthorn knelt after her order and entered in the fortress,commanding the spirits inside it to move: they were going to be a lot above Pruwas,to maintain safe there presence.

Sylverana appeared not far from the tower and she entered in the building made out of stone blocks.
"Excuse me,Lord Gen is available? Am Madame Luxian,owner of a metal-working industry around Lightwake: I'd like to talk about business about obviously magnificent....ehrrr....trinkets...and....workers?" Sylverana said,keeping a fake smile: she never knew something about Science: she hated science way more than ignorance.And Gen was the reincarnation of science.

Sylverana proceeded into the waiting lobby.She took out a book and started to read it,to kill time.
However,she was vigilant,noticing that a new entered looked at her.She smiled,a smile that was able to incite fear.
When she reached chapter twenty-five,an holographic image appeared in front of her,showing the face of Gen.
"Syl~!what are you doing here pretending to be a businesswoman~?".With a flash movement,she closed her book and put it in her back.
"Hmmmm? Syl?" She looked around,seeing no one."Perhaps you are Gen,pleased to meet you...you prefer to talk here?" Sylverana questioned,with a devil smile.
"Yes,it's me Devil in a circuit: and I need to talk to you" Sylverana said,taking her hat down.
In that moment,she released an invisible force to surround her: she was in the enemy's territory.Plus without cover.
"You know,you didn't changed that much....what was the last time you had a decent dinner!? You're pale like a ghost" Sylverana said,getting up from her chair and moving slowly to the Hall.

Arkantos moved inside and took various pairs of blade: deciding that wasting the day in futile ways was....futile,he decided to train.
After somewhat fifteen minutes of walking he reached the training room, and examined it: it was complete,weapons and targets included.
He took a breath and looked around: seven men,unaware of death: he took out four daggers and blamed himself from taking such pitiful number of ammunitions.
He concentrated Ki and muttered something before running at an impressive speed.
He threw a dagger,and precisely it struck the right lung.one
He jumped and reached the left wall.In a matter of seconds another dagger flew,and struck the heart of the second,while a gale came out and pushed another man down.
He landed on the human and precisely removed it's neck.
Then he jumped high,and threw the last dagger upon another.
Three more: Arkantos simulated a surrender,while his daggers flew back to him and he finished them.
Arkantos looked again,feeling a little tired: the utilization of Ki was common to Arkantos,till that he could execute that easy exercises many times a day.
He looked around,seeing the fake men lying down.He recovered his daggers and took a sit.
