0 · 251 views · located in Earth, 2011

a character in “Guardian Corp.”, as played by Kuroh

Description

Name: Sapphire Realus Blaike (Saph)

Age: 21

Gender: Female

Nationality: Romanian/European, but born in the U.S.

Appearance:

Image
Sapphire stands at about 5' 10". She is very tall for her small build, but don't let that facade fool you. Years of martial arts practice and other activities have given her very lean muscle. She has a condition called albinism which causes her to have pale skin, white hair, and pale eyes.

Personality: Sapphire is a very quiet and antisocial girl at first glance. She doesn't like to talk to people, unless they've earned her trust and have become her friends. Underneath her quiet exterior, she is very stubborn and temperamental.

History: Sapphire comes from a very wealthy Romanian family, but she was born in Barrow, Alaska. Being one of the coldest places in the U.S., Sapphire became accustomed to the tempered thunderstorms and constant blizzards. She found peace and happiness in these frequent blizzards. About two years ago, her father came to her with a gift from work. He gave her many books filled with ancient text that were restricted for use only by elite members of the government. She accepted them gratefully and immediately began studying them. That same day, while she was studying the books, her parents had summoned a helicopter. They boarded the metal monstrosity, and Sapphire never saw them again. She devoted years of her life to studying the books, and found that they were full of lessons about magic. She learned later that her father had stolen the books, and had given them to her so that if the government ever asked, she was the one that committed the crime. Soon, she was able to master the magic described in the text.

A few months ago, Sapphire took a trip to California. She decided that she might as well leave the place that held so many bad memories for her. She stayed there for a few weeks before the messages started arriving. Death threats and horrible remarks from Romania were sent to her doorstep. One day, she had had enough. She walked to a park near her apartment. It was around one o'clock in the morning, and the place was deserted. She heard a woman's scream and rushed in the direction of the cry. A dead body lay on the ground, and a snickering man stood above it, stinking of evil magic. Her power suddenly flooded her, and she froze the man where he stood. She didn't kill him.

Unbeknownst to her, a man was standing in the shadows, watching her. He walked toward her, seemingly harmless. He told her that the murderer was a test, and that she had passed and was invited to join the Guardian Corps.

Skills: Sapphire has studied and practiced different kinds of martial arts, especially Taekwondo and Karate.

Magic: Sapphire has two magical abilites: the ability to control and create weather, and the ability to freeze things.

Weaknesses: Sapphire's magic is largely controlled by her emotions. She draws power from strong emotions. If she isn't feeling any strong emotion, her powers will be weakened. Also, her weather magic is opposed by Earth magic, and her ice magic is opposed by Fire magic. Because of her light build, she can be overcome by physically strong opponents.

Items/Weapons: Sapphire's weapons consist of one magi-tech longsword and one small magi-tech pistol. The longsword is her preferred weapon, however.

The black van slowly rolled to a stop. Sapphire, temporarily unable to process where she was, still stared out the window. The driver walked around the car to open her door, but she was faster than him and opened it herself. He grunted as the door hit him in the stomach.

Closing the door behind her, Sapphire let her gaze move to the building for a few minutes before heading in. Apparently, she was the last to arrive. The wind tussled her hair as she stepped out of the car, and she let it flow in front of her face. It seemed like it would rain soon. Ah, the rain. What a peaceful thing.

After she'd had her fill of the building, Sapphire stretched her muscles. Sitting in the car for a few hours made her entire body feel like jelly. It also gave her a few moments to think. She would have to face all of those people the moment she stepped into the room. What fun, she thought. Sighing, Sapphire quickly climbed the steps and walked through the doors.

The room around her was impressive in size and decor. It was connected to various other rooms by corridors that seemed to branch in all directions. A television sat at the back of the room, although it took her a moment to recognize what it was. She hadn't really used one before. She remembered seeing one in the master bedroom of her home in Alaska, but that's as far as her knowledge of them went. The only technological items she had ever used were magi-tech weapons and the occasional cell phone. Books were her primary source of information and entertainment.

As Sapphire walked in, she felt her entire demeanor change. She became the quiet, antisocial girl that she always around people. She decided to walk to the empty seat at the back of the room, avoiding the others as best she could. Her eyes glanced at the Guardians each time she passed them. She didn't know what to say. Socializing wasn't one of her strong points. Deciding that there wasn't much to be done, she quietly sat down and looked at everyone around her.

There was a small girl with strawberry-colored hair and glasses that stood near a table piled with books. On the seat near her sat a young man with dark hair and reddish eyes. And, finally, there was a slender girl with dark hair and hazel eyes that was the first one of them to speak.

"Did no one want to do this?" the girl asked, gesturing at the room.

Sapphire, too awkward to answer, looked at everyone else. Her eyes glanced sharply at all of the Guardians. What kind of question was that? Didn't they all want to be here? Sapphire came here by choice, but had all of them done the same?

The girl was surprised when they both walked in. She jolted her glasses flying out of her hands, and landing near the couch. She stuttered as she turned to her work, made it neat then fumbled around, trying to find her glasses. She went to her knees, trying to find the red glasses she normally wear, almost blind as she fumbled around on the ground, feeling for the glasses. God, Jules. You can't do anything right if you tried. She thought, as the others watched her fumble around for her glasses.

Sapphire's eyes narrowed when the girl jolted. She eyed her for a moment. Her body twitched a little when the girl started moving closer to her. Saph, she thought, it's a pair of glasses. Nothing to worry about. Glancing around, Sapphire saw the glasses seated right next to her feet. The sight of the girl fumbling around on the ground was enough to force Sapphire to pick up the glasses. Awkwardly, Sapphire handed them to the girl, being sure to push them into her hand slightly to tell her that they were there.

Inwardly sighing, Sapphire sat back in the chair, realising that her posture had been tense and straight. She had no idea how she was going to survive this. Back at home, she rarely ever had to interact with anyone. Her parents usually did the talking, and that was to send her up to her room when they had guests. Her eyes narrowed. Parents, she thought. The horrible, disgusting creatures that abandoned her and left her to deal with a crime that they had committed. No. Not here, she thought, shaking her head slightly. This wasn't the ideal place to vent about her psychological issues.

Sapphire glanced at the rest of the Guardians. They all seemed quite at home. Was she the only one that felt out of place? Maybe the people around her were putting up a facade as well. She knew her questions wouldn't be answered, but she still craved the information.

She shifted on the couch slightly, just enough so that her legs were crossed and her arms leaned on her knees. She knew that she looked quite angry, because that's what she always looked like: condescending, superior, and angry. It was a gift and a curse, but mostly a curse. Nobody liked to talk to her because of her seemingly menacing appearance.

As she leaned on her knee, she decided to look around the room.

The other Guardians slowly entered the room as Cyrus stayed seat. First was a young looking girl with light pink coloured hair. She was carrying papers with her, suggesting that she was somewhat knowledgeable but Cyrus couldn't see her as a fighter. She seemed clumsy, there were no clear signs of any weapons and she certainly didn't look strong enough to do martial arts. Cyrus couldn't help but wonder if she was some kind of assistant due to the first impression he had gained of her.

Second to the enter the room was a woman who couldn't of been much further from the girl. She seemed more rugged then her and looked far more combat ready. Along with her was a small red cat that was laying on her shoulder like a parrot. The cat interested Cyrus. He wasn't expecting any animals to be around but he was fond of the idea of having a pet around while they were not busy. Cyrus was about to stand up when she spoke. "And that guy." He was shocked at the blunt opinion but in a way it also assured him. He thought about it a little and realised that this attitude meant she was most likely a very to the point person so she was less likely to hide something from the other Guardians. This is something that Cyrus hoped would be a common theme within the group.

Lastly, a more mysterious, younger lady. Her white appearance and slim body also made her look less like a fighter. She sat down on a seat by herself, only adding to the strange presence she had. Even when handing the girl her glasses she didn't speak, this only made Cyrus more awkward in the situation to the point that he just had to shatter the silence in the room.

Cyrus stood up from the couch and began to speak. "Hey, I'm Cyrus. It's good to finally meet the people behind the names." Cyrus looked around at the others as he spoke with a friendly smile. "I guess we should start by getting to know each other?"

Juliana stumbled back up then slid her glasses on her face. She smiled at the girl who helped her then looked over to the now speaking male. "Oh! Um, okay!" She said, acting as if she was part of the group. She looked around as she waited for someone to start, and when no one did she interrupted again. "I'm Juliana Adeline Cava. You can call me Jules since we'll be working together." She said looking at the others and then went red. "I'm sorry! Did I strike a nerve?" She inquired as she walked over towards her work. She wondered what she had done. She grasped the necklace around her neck, a small amber crystal hanging from her silver chain. What did I do wrong Papa?

The silence was suffocating, even when the guy, Cyrus, decided to speak. No one seemed to be comfortable enough to engage in conversation, and no one had bothered answering her question. This small group of four was drowning in tension. And It was making Shayne restless.The girl with glasses, Jules, was the next one to introduce herself, and she managed to make the air seem lighter. On her shoulder, Boho peered at the magic users, with keen eyes, and after sending each of them a measuring glare the cat spoke. "I here I thought no one knew how to speak....Besides me, and Cyrus." The crimson furred feline jumped off of Shayne's shoulder landing on the edge of the couch with nimble paws. Climbing closer to the newest arrival, the slender one, with snow white hair, Boho's lean feline form gracefully slid down the cushions till he was sitting right next to her leg." You have a scary expression. Can you speak?" Boho's voice was scratchy, with a hint of a purr as he rubbed his head against the girl's hand.

"Boho." Shayne's couldn't keep the horror out of her voice as her familiar took all of the liberties a normal cat would. Purring, and demanding attention, like he was the only thing that mattered in the room. Sending his Master an innocent look, the red feline curled up in a slender ball next to his chosen victim, and smiled a very smug feline smile as Shayne began to simmer. "Oh for the love of..." She threw her hands up in exasperation. Around new people who had never seen a familiar before, he always acted like a brat. It was better to just go with it. Twitching a bit, she massaged her forehead to stem the oncoming headache, and she grudgingly began to introduce herself,"My names Shayne Duvall. And that is Boho." She pointed to the overly friendly cat. "...He's my familiar." She said familiar in the same way one would say testicular cancer.

What a sorry introduction.

"I know this might be a weird suggestion, but if we're going to get to know each other, why don't we start by seeing what we can do? We could all spar, and see how good we are with our Magi-tech?...I don't know about you guys, but I feel more comfortable talking to someone after I've beaten them at something." She glanced around the room with a pleading expression. Shayne's competitive side was rearing it's ugly head, and even though she knew she was at a disadvantage, she still wanted to see what her companions were like.

How strong they were.

How strong she was in comparison.

In this humongous building there was a gym somewhere right?

Juliana looked around at the others as they were okay Shayne's new idea to spar. She gripped her necklace then grabbed her paperwork setting it down in one of the drawers in the desk. She wasn't going to be much of a fight. Really, all Juliana was there for was to fix Magi-Tech and analyze the members to make Magi-Tech specialized for them. They all made their way to the gym that was in the facility. "So, who goes first?" Juliana asked, still holding her crystal. She never really learned magic and she could really only use a Magi-Tech gun which she kept in her boot at all times. She would only use it for self defense though.

Sapphire's eyes widened when the cat pounced on the couch. Unsure of what to do, Sapphire just sat there, transfixed by the small animal. When the thing talked, her eyes sharpened, and she looked back and forth from the girl to the cat. She hadn't been around very many cats, but she was pretty sure that they weren't supposed to talk.

"Yes." she answered, her accent making the word sound sharp.

Sapphire calmed down a bit when the animal curled up beside her. Boho, she corrected herself. She enjoyed the silent conversation between the two. The smug little cat had frustrated it's Master. She felt her mouth twitch upward, but quickly stopped the oncoming smile.

Her ears perked up at the suggestion of a duel. Sapphire's body felt unused and eager to fight after the many hours of sitting in a car. It would be a good way to get to know each other, as well. Sapphire's icy eyes grinned at the sound of competition. This girl will be fun, she thought.

"I agree. A sparring session sounds.....interesting." she said, her light eyes playfully challenging those around her, "Is there a gymnasium in this facility?"

The smaller girl, Juliana, seemed to know where one was because she immediately started in the direction of what seemed to be the gym. Sapphire looked around, wondering whether or not to follow.
