Serenity

|Personality|
{ | Protective | Peaceful | Calm | Amicable | Noble | Carefree | Charming |
}
Yeijiro is the definition of the element air: calm and welcoming. Even in the face of danger, Yeiji always keeps on a serene yet emotionless expression. He’s friendly and inviting, and becomes close to people very easily. He does, however, become attached to people, and will grow over-protective of his friends. He is almost never angry, but if someone were to attack his friends, he may grow enraged and lose control of his powers.
Yeiji is humble and selfless, but also has a lot of pride. If someone were to offer help, he would refuse it. But if someone were to ask for help, he would do everything in his power in an attempt to assist that person. He enjoys the thought of being a hero and strives to be similar to the ones in the stories he was told when he was a child. He can be rather clingy and doesn’t seem to know the definition of personal space.

|Likes|
| Making Friends | Sparring | Cuddling | Eating | Singing | Tempest | Writing | Flying Around Aimlessly | Battling |

|Dislikes|
| Harsh Weather | Extremely Warm Temperatures | Unneeded Violence | Death | Having To Use His Special Power |

|Talents|
Seduction || Yeiji would be lying if he said he had never used his looks to get something he wants. Even though he isn’t the vain type, he does like getting what he wants, and if he can get it himself, he will. His sexuality makes it easy to find attraction in all genders, and he doesn’t feel “awkward” about seducing someone of the same sex.
Martial Arts || Yeiji grew up learning the fighting style, and has long since mastered it both with and without aid of his powers.
Amazingly Light On His Feet || Is this one really surprising? Being a controller of wind, he is natrually quick and light on his feet, but that doesn’t mean he can’t take a hit.
Cooking || Yeiji learned how to cook from his mother, who was a fantastic chef. He’s picked up on the talent easily and tends to cook for leisure.
Multilingual || Yeiji, over the course of years of being introverted and having very few friends, learned many things. He practiced and perfected a multitude of languages, including many European ones along with Japanese and English.

|Flaws|
Pride || Yeiji has an insane amount of pride. So much so that he practically never accepts anyone’s help.
Too Open || Some say Yeiji is too open about certain things. This makes it very easy for people to grow close then betray him.
Overworking || Yeiji does his best to go above and beyond, and sometimes this can tire him out. He overworks himself constantly because of his people-pleaser personality.

|Weaknesses|
Children || If a child is in danger, Yeiji will make that his priority.
Animals || Yeiji loves every type of animal and will do his best to protect them.
Easily Distracted || Yeiji becomes pretty easily distracted, so if a lot of things are happening at once, he can become very confused.
Someone Who Needs Help || Yeiji will put the lives of others before his own. One day, its going to get him killed.

|Hobbies|
Cooking || Yeiji loves to cook and is rather good at it. He loves to cook for other people, especially Tempest, who appears to have the biggest appetite of all living beings.
Sparring || Yeiji enjoys sparring with anybody, but he generally practices with Tempest because her powers are similar to his.
Writing || As simple as that. Yeiji writes stories and poems, although he’s rather shy about showing others his writings.
Singing || Yeiji sings a lot, and his voice is actually rather nice.
Flying || Yeiji likes to just fly around randomly and take in the scenery.

|Powers|
Wind Manipulation || Yeiji has general control over all of the air around him. Since air cannot be seen by conventional methods, neither can the attacks and derivatives formed by/from it, making it an invisible and versatile weapon that is very difficult to block and dodge.
Flight || By manipulating the air around his body, Yeiji can physically fly as well as carry someone similar to his weight with him. He can fly for a good amount of time, but he must eventually rest, especially if he’s carrying someone with him.
Air Solidification || Yeiji can manipulate pressure in the air molecules to solidify the air, with the level of solidity going from loose jello to metal-like hardness or beyond. He can create weapons to hold, but that takes quite a bit of concentration depending on the weapon. He generally just creates staffs because they take a literal second to create, and he has mastered them. He can also make arrow shaped projectiles to wound or kill his opponent.
Suffocation || Yeiji can pull the air out of someone’s lungs and then prevent said person from inhaling any more air.
Enhanced Hearing/Motion Detection || Yeiji can sense movement in the air, making his hearing extremely acute. However, if a loud sound is uttered, it doesn’t bother him any more than the usual person because he is just sensing the vibrations and not physically hearing it.
Greatly Enhancing Physical Ability || Yeiji’s physical capabilities are much higher than any normal human or Keeper for that matter. He increases his speed greatly by reducing air resistance and using the air behind him to push him forward. Yeiji can also make every physical blow he deals much stronger than his physical strength limitation.
Breathing Underwater || He can create a large air bubble around his head to help him breathe underwater.
Other Element Suppression || Yeiji can put out fires by simply narrowing his eyes. He can also almost instantaneously cause metal objects to grow rusty. Yeiji can also manipulate sounds by increasing the vibrations of air molecules.
Implosions/Explosions || Yeiji can pull all of the air molecules out of a building and the outer force of molecules would cause it to implode in on itself. He can also take all of the air molecules away from a person, and because their internal pressure is higher than the pressure outside of them, their blood would begin to boil and they would explode. He can also pressurize handfuls of air into small bombs that he can throw and then blow up. He can increase the size of the bomb massively and cause explosions stronger than ones from TNT.

|Special Power|
Inner Tornado || Yeiji launches himself into the middle of the battle field and creates a tornado around him. The winds can reach up to 300 mph, and will leave nothing standing around him, including people and buildings. He can hold this up for a few minutes before passing out.

|Secondary Area|
Fire

|Skill Set|
Staff || If Yeiji is even using a weapon, he will use a staff, whether it be one made of metal or of air.
Martial Arts || A major part of Yeiji’s combat style is martial arts. He is very talented in this type of fighting.
Music || Yeiji likes to have headphones on and listen to music when fighting. This gives rhythm to his fighting style and makes all of his moves timed perfectly and precise.

|Typical Attire|
If at the place he calls home, it would not be uncommon to see Yeiji walking around in only a pair of shorts. He prefers to have on as little clothes as he can because he loves to be able to feel the wind around his body. However, if he must go out, he wears comfortable clothing, such as cargo shorts and a button up or t-shirt. If he is actually wearing shoes, he’s wearing sneakers.

|Keepsakes|
Yeiji has a silver necklace with a worn-looking metal bat on it. Tempest “found” it when the two were very young, and Yeiji has worn it practically every day of his life since then.

|History|
Yeiji’s history seems to be rather uneventful compared to other keeper’s. His parents were regular humans, and when Yeiji discovered his powers at the very young age of five, his parents were more than thrilled. This only reassured the fact that their son was even more special than they believed. Yeiji’s mother had tried for years to have a child, and failed many, many times, but once Yeiji was born, they treated him like a gift from God himself.

Yeiji’s parents may have cherished him, which was rather expected since he was an only child, but he was far from spoiled. He had to work for the things that he wanted, and his parents made sure to raise him right. He did his best to suppress his powers when he was in school or public, but if something did slip, his parents did not reprimand him. As he grew older, his powers grew stronger, but Yeiji practiced. He practiced by himself, with the aid of his father who ran a local dojo. Yeiji was taught to have peace within when challenging chaos. He would meditate and make sure to remain relaxed so that his powers would not grow out of hand.

With Yeiji teaching himself, he was not restricted to the ways of his elder Keepers of the Air. He learned many different techniques that other air controllers could not even dream about using. His powers grew the more he practiced, so Yeiji was never bored. Despite the fact that he was a rather kind, charming boy, he tended to keep to himself. His schoolmates did eventually find out about his powers, and did their best to stay away, but Yeiji wasn’t alone. He met Tempest when he learned of his powers, and the two have been inseparable since.

When Yeiji was invited to join a guild, his parents were almost more excited than he was. He immediately accepted. The only thing that nagged at the back of his mind was the fact that he would be leaving his defenseless parents behind. They are his secret weakness; he never got close to anyone else. He just hopes that no one evil finds out and exploits this.

Image
Image
|Dominant Emotion|
Carefree

|Personality|
Tempest is named that for a reason. She’s like a little wind storm, constantly moving around and wrecking havoc carelessly wherever she goes. Despite the fact that she’s clumsy and tends to break everything she touches, Tempest is actually rather sweet. She does her best to be gentle and kind, but her rambunctious nature can only be suppressed for so long. Tempest is constantly ogling at both girls and boys, and has no self restraint when she wants to touch someone or something. Tempest is believed to have the biggest appetite of all living things. She’s always eating something, and if she’s not eating, she’s napping in a warm path of sun.
Even though Tempest has quite the childlike attitude, do not underestimate her. Her specialty is controlling sound, which is only a variation of air manipulation. She can deafen people without a second thought, but Yeiji is usually around to lower the volume of Tempest’s screeches. Tempest can also fly at incredible speeds in her bat form. Shifting from form to form only takes a few seconds.

|Likes|
| Creating Noise | Eating | Flying Around | Being With Yeiji | Napping in the Sun | Sparring | Yeiji’s Cooking |

|Dislikes|
| Hearing Loud Noises She is not the Creator Of | The Smell of Blood | Thunderstorms | Earth Controllers | Getting Hurt |

|Talents|
Flying || Tempest can fly, but the thing that makes it a talent is how well she flies. She flies extremely fast and has amazing maneuverability in the air.
Speaking Different Languages || For some reason, the only education-oriented subject Tempest ever picked up on was learning languages. She speaks more than a dozen now.
Getting Out of Trouble || When Tempest gets in trouble, she always seems to get out of it scotch-free. Whether it be she broke something and someone is chasing her or she’s in a sticky situation, she’s great at making quick escapes.
Singing || Tempest is a talented singer even though she is generally too shy to sing. Sometimes, if she’s alone with Yeiji she will sing with him.
Getting What She Wants || Tempest is good at getting what she wants. Whether she uses an absolutely adorable pout or her charm and wit, she will do everything she can to get what she wants.

|Flaws|
Vanity || Tempest believes she is this amazing creature that everyone should adore, so that if someone were to say they do not like her, should would be mentally wounded.
Childish || Tempest is like a twelve year old in a 21 year old’s body. Her emotions are very fragile, so if someone were to insult her or yell at her she may tear up and cry.
Hunger || Tempest’s immense hunger will distract her even if she is in the craziest of situations.

|Weaknesses|
Food || If you were to offer Tempest food, she would do almost anything you told her to.
Thunderstorms || For some reason, ironically, Tempest has always been deathly afraid of thunderstorms. Mainly because of the loud sounds along with the fact that she is completely grounded.
Her Senses || Tempest’s senses are heightened sharply, so extremely loud sounds and smells can weaken or cripple her.
Her Wings || Tempest’s wings are rather fragile, and if they were to be injured, broken, or dislocated, it could take months to heal and she would have to remain grounded.

|Hobbies|
Eating || Tempest is always eating in an attempt to feed her massive appetite. Yeiji isn’t sure whether she’s just always hungry or if her metabolism is through the roof.
Napping || If its a calm, warm day, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and she isn’t hungry, the odds are Tempest is napping. She loves to curl up in warm patches of sunlight.
Hunting || When in her bat form, Tempest instinctively hunts small animals and will sometimes bring them back as a gift to Yeiji, similar to what a cat would do. Yeiji usually scolds her for taking the life of an innocent animal, but she still does it.
Sparring || Sparring is among the few things that Tempest actually enjoys doing. She generally only spars with Yeiji though for many reasons.
Cuddling || The odds are, if Yeiji is sitting or lying down somewhere, Tempest is cuddling up against him and napping.

Location ~ Olny, Latvia -
Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Forgiveness
Dialogue ~ #510D5C



The placement of the sun whose light shone warmly across the mountain ranges indicated it to be around four in the afternoon. The shadows of countless trees were beginning to stretch across the ground, enveloping the smaller plants and shrubs that crowded themselves amongst the forest floor. Kain stood high up on a large rock mass covered in moss with light orange flowers growing from the earth around it. From his point of view, he could only see the roof of the old church that had long been abandoned, much the the rest of the town that was located about a mile away. He'd taken a stroll through the old town on his way here, finding the old style of the houses that had plants overtaking the walls and insides to be interesting, but there were also remnants left behind of the battle that had taken place there many years ago that had forced hundreds of people to take what they could and leave their home to escape the monsters that had wiped out half the town.

Kain moved his eyes to the sky, a third time now as he checked the time using the sun and the shadows. He had a cell, but the outdated flip phone's battery had been dead for nearly two days now and Kain had no intention of recharging it any time soon. The thing was a nuisance anyway and it wasn't as if he had any real need for it since the only time he ever received a call was if it was from the Council. The most recent one was three days ago when the Council alerted him of the new mission that he had been personally recommended for from none other than the man whom he'd only ever seen pictures of.

There was a sudden weight on him and he moved his eyes from the sky to the icy blue dragon that had perched himself on Kain's left shoulder. He gave his demon a small smirk before looking back down at the church. "What do you think, Orion? We kept them waiting long enough?"

The dragon said nothing, only stared at the church with eager, but calm eyes. It had been almost a half hour since the last member of the guild known as Lone Sin, the very guild that he would now be the master of, had entered the church. That should be plenty of time for them to relax and probably start questioning why they were there. It was about time Kain explained to them their situation, but first he wanted to get to know them a little. "Alright", he said to his demon, though he kept his eyes on the church. "Just don't kill anybody. That'll look bad on my part."

Orion glanced at his master, narrowing his eyes slightly to show his distaste of Kain's joke, before turning and leaping from Kain's shoulder and taking flight. As it made it's way over the roof o the church, it was no longer the size of a cat, but rather an elephant, his wings casting a long shadow over the church for just a second before he dove and crashed through the stone roof and landing in the middle of the large room. With a roar that could echo on for miles, he spread his wings and stood threateningly, sending a blast of cold air all around him. No doubt this would trigger a reacting from the guild mates who had gathered there. Now that the rood had been torn apart by Orion, Kain had the perfect view to observe the people he would soon be leading.

He watched on for only a few minutes, his eyes moving from one guild mate to the other as they each went about handling the situation in their own way. Orion no longer attacked, as that was not his purpose. He shielded himself carefully from any attacks thrown at him, and continued to growl and whip his tail around in a hostile manner. 'Right, that'll do.'

Jumping down from the rock mass, he made a path of ice for himself and quickly reached the forest floor and made his way to the front entrance of the church, waiting only a second before pushing the right door open. He clapped his hands together once, a cold force shooting out and spreading over the area of the room before it quickly disappeared. "That's enough. Let's not wreck the building anymore than it already is."

As he spoke, Orion shifted back into his small size and flew over to Kain, once again perching on his left shoulder. "You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?"

Von had been one of the earlier arrivals, meaning he was also one of the people who had waited the longest. He stood as far away from the rest of the people there, not wanting to be any closer than he had to. In the shadow of a dilapidated pillar, Von had been using his Darkness' Cloak ability to conceal his presence as much as he could. He knew that the guild members he would soon be working alongside were high enough ranks that his cloaking would be noticed by at least a few of them, but hopefully they would get the message and leave him alone. He already had one annoying pest to deal with.

Speaking of the devil, Von felt a sudden weight on his shoulders as his demon, Rune, jumped on his back and wrapped her arms around his neck, hanging on like a kindergartner at a fair. "Hey, Von. Why don't you go talk to the others?" She asked, giving him a slightly disappointed tone, "You're being all gloomy in the corner again." With a sigh, Von grabbed both of her hands and removed them from his neck, putting her back on the ground. "That's going to be a solid negative, Rune." He said flatly, flicking her forehead as he did so, "I don't know them well, they don't know me well. Going to them now would just be dangerous." Rune pouted as she rubbed her forehead with her hands.

Before either of them could say something else, there was a loud crash as the roof of the abandoned church came crashing down along with a giant blue dragon. ""Contact! Middle of the church, single enemy!" The moment he saw the blue as it crashed into the building, Von had grabbed Rune by her scarf and combat rolled into the shadow of a pew, using it as a Shadow Doorway to a shadowed corner on the far side. "What is that?!" Rune asked Von, a tone of alarm in her voice. Without an answer, Von drew his gun, took cover behind a pew. and immediately started taking shots at the giant beast. It basically translated into one thing, I don't know what, I don't care what, I'm shooting anyways. Feeling a sweatdrop form, Rune sighed and drew her own blade and lunged at the demon. It looked like he and Rune were quick on the draw here as it seemed that most of the others were either just starting an attack or not doing anything at all.

Before much attacks could have connected, another person walked through the door. He clapped out his hands, sending a wave of cold through the church; Von shivered a little. "That's enough. Let's not wreck the building anymore than it already is." At this time, the blue demon in the middle shrunk down to size and flew over to the new arrival, landing on his shoulder. "You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?" Von let out a sigh as he ejected the magazine from his gun and inspected it, empty. He sighed as he replaced the empty clip with a full one, as he walked over to the front of the church, away from the new arrival. In the shadow of the wall, he once again used Shadows' Cloak and listened from afar.

Image"Those who become close are the ones you should watch the most."


It was a rather nice day, only a slight breeze coming from the North. Alice sat in the space that used to hold a whole and beautiful stain glass window, no doubt depicting a momentous biblical event. All that was left was shards sticking out of the wood that held what used to be in place.

As per usual, Alice was adorned with what exposed her best. A cropped gray tee, a micro-mini skirt and a snug pair of brown combat boots. She hadn't felt like doing much with her hair so it was down, reaching past her bottom and ending strictly at her knees. She was currently sitting on her hair actually. But since she had full mobility of her head, she didn't care to be honest. All her mind was occupied with was why she was sitting in a church with her guild mates. She wasn't the first to arrive, but she certainly wasn't the last. The only occupant was the other Shadow Keeper, Von. Then the others began to trickle in one by one.

The sun was shining in through the window, warming Alice's back with the breeze right there to cool her. It was almost too nice of a day. "You are looking as wonderful as usual," Gabriel said, materializing next to his Keeper. Gabriel was Alice's demon, a handsome man himself. Well, when he was in his human for anyways. Other than that, Gabriel was a Shadow without any definite shape. Alice was currently watching her guild mates from above, flipping her favorite box cutter in her left hand and propping herself up with her right.

"Oh, I know. I wanted to be prepared in case something happened."

"In case you needed to entice someone with your alluring figure?"

"No, in case I need to move. Less clothing I wear, less restriction."

"So why don't you fight naked?"

Alice gave Gabriel a look. He knew exactly why she couldn't. One, she had asked and the Guild Master had shot her down so quickly it wasn't really fair. Two, Alice believed that with the teasing way she dressed, it would distract more than if she was fully naked. With that, the two fell silent, continuing their perched observation, Alice's eyes dull and dead, Gabriel's a brilliant blue-green that shined with excitement. In the middle of a long yawn, a giant blue dragon covered in fur and feathers broke through the roof. The girl simply covered herself with her Shadow Fire, anything that flew at her would simply pass through and become paralyzed. Besides, there was one monster and six of the Guild members ready to fight.

Something strange happened however. All the creature did was deflect their attacks, not creating any of it's own. That was when Alice allowed her Shadow Fire to disperse, knowing that this was an obvious distraction made by friendly fire. Otherwise the creature would be attacking them. "Tsk," the sound escaped her pursed lips.

A burst of cold air sent a shiver up Alice's spine and the familiar feel of the old door feet below her opening didn't really surprise Alice at all. "That's enough. Let's not wreck the building anymore than it already is." The dragon creature shrunk in size and flew into the doorway where a man awaited. "You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?" Alice remained quiet.

I don't see why I should care. Doesn't effect me whatsoever. It'll be the same old shit. We all get missions, Ill be the only one to do it efficiently and right.

{ Test Drive || John Powell }

"Conflict is drama, and how people deal with conflict shows you the kind of people they are.”


“Yeiji…”

“Hmm…”

“Yeiiijiiii…”

“Hmmmm…”

“Yeiijiii!”

“Yes, Tempest?” Yeiji gingerly moved half of his head phone off of his ear so he could listen to his whiney demon more closely.

“This is boring… I don’t feel like waiting anymore…”

Yeiji sighed, turning his head to look at the inside of the church. It was ancient and practically falling apart. He had been one of the early ones to arrive, so he had been stuck here for more than an hour now. At some point, he simply let himself fall back. Yeiji was now laying on his back, hovering two feet off of the ground, his hands behind his head and his feet crossed at his ankles. He figured the ground would be very uncomfortable, so floating seemed like a much better option. Tempest, who was in her bat form and only a few inches in size, had curled up on Yeiji’s belly and was snoozing happily until recently. Now she was awake, grumpy, and most likely hungry.

“He’s an hour late…” Yeiji muttered.

Almost as if on cue, Yeiji’s entire body went rigid. He sensed a massive object moving towards and church. Before he could even prepare himself, a loud crashing sound was heard as a giant blue creature smashed the roof of the church. Yeiji, now no longer focusing on keeping his body in the air, dropped those two feet right onto his back, earning a throaty gasp. He forced the air back into his lungs and scrambled to his feet. Tempest, who was probably the most startled being in the room, immediately grew immensely in size. Yeiji dove out of the way of Tempest’s thick, lashing tail. The female demon let out a screech of disdain, the building shaking. Just when she was about to attack, a man came marching through the front doors.

"That's enough. Let's not wreck the building anymore than it already is."

The dragon who practically caved the roof in shrunk, leaving a very confused Tempest. She changed into her human form, her golden gaze following the small dragon as it landed on the man’s shoulder. Yeiji took a step towards Tempest, not threateningly, but more protectively.

"You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?"

“First of all, how dare you!” Tempest shouted with outrage, stomping forward towards Kain.

“Tempest, don’t-” Yeiji was cut off as Tempest continued, her hands balled into fists.

“You’re lucky I didn’t blow your eardrums out and blast you into last week!”

“Tempest!” Yeiji’s tone was not angry, it was simply stern. His bright eyes turned cold, hard, and sharper than the cold blast that had spread throughout the room when their new guild master entered.

“No!” The tension in the room increased by tenfold as Tempest’s entire body tensed up, preparing to strike. Yeiji clenched his jaw. He flicked his arm outwards and before Tempest could even move something invisible coiled around her waist. “Wh-wha-” Yeiji yanked his arm back, and with a yelp, his demon was sent flying backwards towards him. She bounced off of his chest, and before she could even stand, Yeiji took a hold of her little bat ear. “Ow…! Yeiji, stop it!”

Tempest swatted at him, but Yeiji only tugged a little harder, silencing her. He returned his now calm, soft gaze towards their new guild master and hoped he wouldn’t notice his embarrassment. “I’m very sorry about that. She can get out of hand sometimes…” He glared at her momentarily and she flinched. Yeiji gingerly released her ear, which she grabbed and massaged between her fingers. “My name is Yeiji Kenmotsu. So much for making a good first impression… Tempest. Say you’re sorry.” He crossed his arms, glancing at her once more.

“I… I’m sorry…”

“Good.” Yeiji praised and reached out with one hand, resting it on top of her head. He rubbed her ear soothingly, as if an apology for tugging on it earlier. Tempest practically purred, a smile widening on her face.

Location: Olny, Latvia





"Nuisance! Demon! Idiot! Stay away from my kids!" His hands balled into fists, blue flames bursting from between his fingers. He wanted the insults to stop, he wanted to be just like everyone else! Things became blurry, he moved faster then humanly possible and when Kyou's vision finally came back into focus, blood covered his hands. Of course this never really happened, it was simply a nightmare, nothing more or less; however the insults were very much authentic. Kyou awoke the way one might fall asleep; lazily, slowly, then all at once when Rem jumped on top of him. His breath left his body and the Keeper sat up, groaning, clutching his stomach and rolling over on the wooden floor. He had been camping out in a monastery right outside of Olny, only a half an hour away from Our Lady of Perpetual Forgiveness. Kyou's methods weren't exactly legal and even though he had enough funds to stay at a real hotel, old habits died hard.

Kyou packed up his blanket, zipped his sweatshirt up, pulled on his gloves, and tied his shoes, Rem curiously glancing over the roof, her kimono sleeves touching the shingled tiles despite the fact that she had rolled them all the way up. It was time to go; Kyou landed in the middle of the garden and made his way out of the fenced area, dropping a dollar into the donation box on his way out. "One more mountain and we're done," He promised his demon who was oddly contemplative on this fine morning. The sky was a thick murky gray, clouds swimming in the ugly broth that covered the air above them. "What if he's like the last one?" The demon finally spoke as their boots crunched across broken glass and rubble. They were close, walking through a strip of abandoned houses whose facades included some of the ugliest architecture that the two had ever laid eyes on. Kyou stopped short and she turned to look at him, their last Guild Master had been a nasty man who lashed out at his pupils when they did something wrong. "Don't worry," He stepped forward and ruffled Rem's purple hair, a smile adorning his lips once more. "We're not part of that group anymore, not for a while now." Rem huffed, it wasn't a real answer, but it was the best one she was going to get.

They stopped right outside. Kyou adjusted the sword bag on his shoulders and pushed the heavy wooden doors open, instantly sensing the presence of a few others. Quietly he entered, Rem staying silent behind him; her ears twitching at every little sound from the breathing of other Shadow Keepers' to the swaying of the building in the wind. Kyou's posture was relaxed, although his expression was guarded, he took a seat in one of the empty rows, the decaying wooden bench creaking under his weight. Since the age of fifteen Kyou had worked under Lone Sin, however this was the first time he would see a new Guild Master. It seems that the boy was right on time because as soon as the doors closed they opened again and a blue demon that took the form of a dragon entered along with his master.

He stood proudly, marching straight to the front of the room and announcing that he was in fact, the new head of the Guild and that if anyone had any questions they should speak now. For once the boy remained quiet, although Rem fidgeted quite a bit; clearly she was curious about the dragon.

Ila kept her hand firmly tangled with the thick fur of her demon's shoulder as she sidestepped around a pile of broken glass on the church's floor. Her feet were calloused and strong, but broken glass was never a good thing to step on with bare feet. 'I'm not sure it's a good sign when the new Guild Master is late to his own meeting,' Mato telepathically told Ila. The Earth Keeper gave a loud guffaw at her demon's humor before remembering how their telepathic conversations looked on the outside, and remembering that she had to hold her laugh inside lest the guild members think she was more strange than they already thought she was. 'Maybe he forgot?' she sent back to the bear demon with as much sarcasm as a thought could possibly hold.

The old church they had gathered in was beautiful in its own strange way with patches of sunlight filtering through where once-gorgeous stained glass windows had been broken. As Ila stepped into one of these patches of sunlight, she glanced around at the other guild members around the room. Some of them she could see clearly, some of them she could not see due to their tendency to blend in with the shadows; however, each one of them had their own unique vibrations and Ila could feel every single one of them through her entire being. That was one of the benefits of working with the same people: it became easy to tell their vibrations apart from one another and apart from everyone else, even in a crowd.

While Ila had thought that she was late for the meet-up, she had been waiting for over a half an hour and she was becoming antsy -what with her complete lack of patience and all. She could not imagine sitting around here for longer than she had already sat around for, and furthermore, she could not believe that this new guild master was late for his own introduction.

Ila was about to inform the others of her irritation when she felt a slight disruption in the church's foundation. Next to her, Mato's body also went rigid just seconds before a loud crash came from directly above her. Immediately, instinct took over and she stopped the large pieces of ceiling that were about to fall on top of her and Mato. She threw them away from herself and was greeted by the tail-end of the icy blue dragon that had crashed into the church. The creature opened its mouth and gave a screech before shooting what appeared to be an ice blast around itself. Without second thought, Ila forced her bo-staff into the ground and immediately a section of the church's foundation came up to create a wall in front of her and Mato. As a wave of icy air rushed over the wall, Ila kicked the concrete wall and sent it slamming into the dragon's body.

The surprise and all of the action set Ila's vibration sensing on high alert and she could feel every single move of every creature in the room; however, what was more of a concern for her was the shaking of the church's foundation around them. Although she would have rather continue fighting alongside her guild mates, Ila knew that if the building collapsed on them, there would be no guild, so she sent a quick mental message to Mato telling him to protect her for the moment. With that, Ila planted her feet and bo-staff firmly on the group and calmed her mind, focusing on the vibrations of the building around her. With her mind focused, Ila sent her own powers out to stop the church from shaking any more and to stabilize the foundation that had begun to wear down after years of no repair or maintenance. Just as she had finished setting the stones that made the foundation of the church, Ila felt a rush of cold air hit her back. It took her a moment to process that someone had opened the door behind her and she belated turned toward the cold wind just as a black-haired man stepped through the door.

"That's enough. Let's not wreck the building anymore than it already is." Ila furrowed her brow at the man with both anger and confusion, not yet fully understanding the purpose of what he had just done. It only took her another moment to come back to herself and realize that he must be their new Guild Master and that this dragon must have been a test of some sort. Not coming to the same conclusion as his master, Mato growled deeply at the man until Ila settled a hand on his shoulder, informing him telepathically that he was not an enemy. The blue dragon that they had "fought" -now shrunken down to the size of a house cat- flew up to perch on the man's shoulder as he spoke again, "You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?"

Overcome with a feeling of anger at this guy's stupid test, Ila furrowed her brow and took a step toward the new Guild Master. Although nearly a foot shorter than him, Ila stood as tall as she could in front of him, letting him know that she was serious. "Yeah, just one actually. What the hell was that? This whole building was about to collapse. Ya know that? Could've killed us all." Beside her, Mato nudged Ila, silently informing her that her anger was getting a bit out of hand. However, she was not the only one who was clearly angered by these events. Yeiji's demon clearly shared Ila's sentiment and she voiced it much more adamantly. As Yeiji scolded his demon and forced her to apologize to the Guild Master, Ila crossed her arms defensively over her chest. Of course, this sort of testing was not too unusual and she shouldn't have been surprised; however, she would not apologize. Had she waited only a few seconds longer, there was a possibility that the church could have caved in on the entire guild.

Still feeling angry and knowing that she needed to cool down before she spoke to anyone, Ila took a deep breath and stepped down from her angry stance in front of the new Guild Master. 'Well, this oughta be fun,' she thought sarcastically to herself as she resolved to kept herself uncharacteristically quiet lest she make a fool of herself in front of a man that would be the master of their guild until further notice.

“Ame! Hey, Ame!”Amaterasu leant back against one of the walls in the church, giving a small sigh as she replied “What is it this time, Setsuna?”, asking the question smoothly without once looking up from the book as held in her hands, flipping the pages quickly as she scanned the information in it. It was yet another scientific book about wind and its uses, and currently she was learning how to use her powers better. She could control the weather and make tempests or hurricanes anytime she wishes to by simply controlling the direction of the wind, but that wasn’t quite enough. The things she could do with this power… “Ame! Pay attention!” Raising her eyes momentarily, she glanced up slightly to see her demon, her hands on her hips while she towered over her. “Fine. What is it?” She asked, giving in as she snapped the book shut. “I drew one of the murals, isn’t the design nice~” Setsuna asked, happily showing her a piece of paper on which she had drawn the whole design of the painting with a pencil. It was a simple sketch, but impossibly detailed, at least, to the human eye. “If only you could use the energy you have in making those into fighting, that would be useful.” Amaterasu said, her gaze once again on the open book, as Setsuna slid into a sitting position next to her.

Their supposed guild master was supposed to arrive about exactly an hour and forty five minutes ago, and Amaterasu had been getting exceedingly annoyed over the time being. Her annoyance and impatience has seemingly been rubbing off on Setsuna, or so she had observed, as the hyperactive demon was avidly scribbling down the murals and drawings in the church. The other guild members all seemed to prefer to keep to themselves, not that she minded the slightest. In fact, the peace and quiet was what she had been looking forward to for quite a long time, without any distractions of monsters suddenly barging in or one of her teammates speaking. There was only one looming cloud over this, and that was the punctuality of their guild master. If he thought that it was going to help them bond or talk with each other, well, he was wrong. The shadow keepers, as secretive as they always were, either hiding with their cloak, or in Alice’s case, sitting at the hole where the window used to be. The church had not seemed very appealing, but at least, there were things to keep Setsuna interested.

“Contact! Middle of church, single enemy!” Von’s voice shouted as a blue and white dragon came crashing from the roof as it roared and used its ice powers. Obviously not a very smart dragon, to attract attention to itself in that way. What was more, it was dodging and not attacking, only making itself seem dangerous. Although Amaterasu had her wind swirling around her, and Setsuna had gotten up, ready for battle, she was still reluctant to make a move. The beast might not have any intention of hurting them from its actions so far, and since it was no doubt a pretty big threat if it really attacked, she preferred not to provoke it even more. No need for more trouble than its worth. There was another loud screech causing her to wince slightly, as Yeiji’s demon let out a huge screech of possible disdain. “Tone it down.” She muttered to herself, a single phrase as a man strode in before the guild’s attacks could connect with the dragon, giving off an icy blast like the dragon had. “Thats enough. Lets not wreck the building anymore than it already is.””You can call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I’m your new Guild Master. Got any questions?” The dragon had by now reverted into a smaller shape of a house cat, flying up to the man’s shoulder and making its perch there.

So thats their new guild master… Well, his sense of responsibility does seem promising. Their future under him would probably filled with joy and rainbows huh. Setsuna frowned slightly, showing the amount of exasperation her master was feeling, but the glow in her eyes showed all of her curiosity and the will to find out more about the person and the demon. “Setsuna.” She said, keeping her demon back, but another has already approached the guild master. Tempest. She shouted the the man, seemingly angry at what he did. Well who won’t be? She was about to say something, to stop her. After all, the man was their guild master, and attacking him might not be their best decision, but Yeiji beat her to it, pulling his demon back and punishing it, forcing it to apologise.

However, Tempest wasn’t the only one mad at the man. Ila, the most expressive of the female members in the guild, was mad at him too, confronting him directly and saying that he could have murdered them. Thankfully, she drew back unlike Tempest, staying unusually quiet for her nature. It would seem like everyone has held a certain amount of respect for the guild master. “Calm down, everyone. It would seem like nobody is severely injured over that over-dramatised show our guild master had put up for us, and though we faced risks, well, nothing came out too serious. Though I’d have to say that it was highly unnecessary, and a primitive way to test our reactions.” Amaterasu spoke, with her calm and reasonable voice like always, in hopes of calming down the others before they too, starting confronting or threatening the guild master. There was a few in their guild with fiery tempers, and she did not like to imagine the circumstances that were possible to occur. Although she didn’t express her opinions too explicitly, she made it clear that she was not impressed with his actions, topping off her little speech by shooting an icy glare at him with her bright yellow eyes, devoid of emotions as usual.

Smoking arose from around Mikhail as he began burning parts of the hollowed out tree he was sitting against. The small orange ember danced from his hand to the tree itself. Burning parts of the old thing before being extinguished He searched the old church watching each of his guildmates wait for their new guildmaster. Mikhail, unlike the rest of the guild, wasn't really looking forward to meeting the new guildmaster. It meant that he would accept the fact that the old man had left Lone Sin. The spot he was sitting had a pretty good vantage point, giving access to the whole area below him but just enough space for him to rush in and help if trouble was to happen. While most of the guild had just begun arriving to the church, Mikhail had gotten there way earlier than any of them. He had taken the liberty of securing the area and making sure there were no dangers around.

Crash! He looked down as a large blue dragon seemed to have landed at the church. "So..... I did miss something." "HEY FUCKER!!! LET ME MAKE A SHISH KEBAB OUT OF YOU!!" Mikhail roared as he ran from his spot, his hads burned with the same old orange flame that came on them each time he'd fight. With all the waiting that he'd done it was a big relief to have something to fight. He could hear the joint reactions of each member of his guild but tuned them out, he wasn't in the mood to do some coopertative attack.

As he got close to the beast he noticed a few things about it. One the monster wasn't actually attacking but defending. Two all the attacks it reflected weren't leathal at all. And third of all it wasn't releasing any killing intent. Something was going on, he had enough combat experience to know that. "He's not dangerous Mikhail," said a voice behind him. Turning around Mikhail saw his demon, in her fox form, standing behind him. "Dae, still stay behind me incase something does happens." Still something was off and he knew that if he got to the beast it just might tell him. He turned back to the dragon and sprinted off but as soon as he came within striking distance the thing grew smaller and flew off to someone Mikhail had never seen before.

"You can all call me Kain and the dragon here is my demon, Orion. I'm your new Guild Master. Got any questions?"

"See, I told you," his demon said in a condescending manor, "Now put out those flames before you hurt someone."[/color] A mad smile lite his face as he watched the guildmaster “Calm down, everyone. It would seem like nobody is severely injured over that over-dramatised show our guild master had put up for us, and though we faced risks, well, nothing came out too serious. Though I’d have to say that it was highly unnecessary, and a primitive way to test our reactions.” He looked over to Amaterasu as she said that. It was true nobody got hurt but still he was going to give the man a piece of his mind. Mikhail stomped over to Kain, Ignoring Ila completely, and got up right into the guys face. "HEY!!! I GET THAT YOU WANTED SOME FANCY CINDERELLA SHIT BUT FUCKEN THAT WAS STUPID. YOUR LUCKY THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REGARDED YOUR DEMON AS AN ACTUALL THREAT. THE HELL WOULD YOU DO IF THAT FURBALL GOT HURT?HUH!? Behind him Mikhail heard a whine from Dae before she said,"sorry."

Location ~ Olny, Latvia -
Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Forgiveness
Dialogue ~ #510D5C



"First of all, how dare you!"

"Here we go..", Kain said quietly to himself, letting out a sigh as one of the demons began to approach him looking quite upset. This was the demon that belonged to Yeijiro Kenmotsu, from what he recalled from the documents the Council had given him when they first offered him the position. She was a bat, but could also take on the form of a human like many demons could. She continued to walk towards him, but he stood relaxed with a rather bored expression on his face. He didn't really see her as a threat and Orion had already leaped from his shoulder and landed on the ground in front of him, taking on a defensive pose with his fur bristling and teeth ready.

"Calm down." Kain nudged his demons hind leg with his boot as the little bat was pulled back. Orion raised his head slightly, keeping his place in front of Kain but now showing a somewhat calmer demeanor.

"I’m very sorry about that. She can get out of hand sometimes… My name is Yeiji Kenmotsu. So much for making a good first impression… Tempest. Say you’re sorry."

"I already know who everyone is, so introductions aren't necessary." He only glanced at the bat for a second as she apologized, barely giving her any acknowledgment. No that he had time to since someone else had decided to express their annoyance. This time is was the earth user Ila Avani, who hurried towards him and placed herself in front of him despite the now growling Orion who remained at his feet.

"What the hell was that? This whole building was about to collapse. Ya know that? Could've killed us all."

Kain stared down at her blankly and somewhat annoyed, but said nothing. Either she would continue with her ranting or she would back down and as he suspected, after standing there angrily for a few moments, she stepped away. He once again nudged Orion with his boot, only this time with a little more force, and the dragon silenced his growling. The demon really was too protective of him.

"Calm down, everyone. It would seem like nobody is severely injured over that over-dramatised show our guild master had put up for us, and though we faced risks, well, nothing came out too serious. Though I’d have to say that it was highly unnecessary, and a primitive way to test our reactions."

His eyes moved to Amaterasu Himura, the female wind user of Lone Sin, the first one who didn't sound like they wanted to chew his head off aside from Yeiji. Or at least she didn't express it in her voice, but her words clearly showed her distaste.

Before he could respond, Mikhail stormed up to him barely a split second after Ila had moved aside. Kain could feel the heat coming off of the younger male just from him being angry. Although younger, he was a little taller than him, which admittedly was a bit annoying since Kain now had to move his head back just slightly to meet eyes with him. He'd noticed that all of the men here were at least an inch taller than him, save for the gunman, Von Myrkur, who'd retreated to the shadows a soon as Kain had introduced himself.

"HEY!!! I GET THAT YOU WANTED SOME FANCY CINDERELLA SHIT BUT FUCKEN THAT WAS STUPID. YOUR LUCKY THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REGARDED YOUR DEMON AS AN ACTUALL THREAT. THE HELL WOULD YOU DO IF THAT FURBALL GOT HURT?HUH!?"

He narrowed his eyes at the fire user as Orion leaped up onto Kain's shoulder, clearly displeased with Mikhail's raised voice, but he was also unhappy that he was just called a 'furball', not that anyone but Kain would notice that, though.

"Quite your damn shouting." This time Kain let the annoyance in his voice slip out. "Think I'd just throw him in here without being prepared to intervene? Idiot."

If there were anymore shouting from the strawberry blond, Kain paid no attention to it. He took a step to the side and walked around the angry Mikhail, making his way to the center of the room before letting out another sigh and patting his demon on the head to calm him down. The negative emotions that the others were feeling were making the dragon uneasy, but with Kain's touch he let his fur finally lay flat. "Are you all done complaining? Geeze, you sound like a bunch of children, and to think I'm only a year or two older than some of you.." He mumbled the last part as he turned around to face his new guild, ready to give his reply to everyone's actions.

"Since Yeiji's the only one who hasn't annoyed me, excluding the anti-social members in the building who have yet to open their mouths, I'll start with Ila." His voice was suddenly stern as his icy blue eyes rested on the earth user. "Your main concern was the building collapsing, so you used your power to keep it as steady as you could. That was good support that you gave, but don't be so full of yourself. It would be pretty embarrassing for a guild as famous as Lone Sin to lose their lives because a building collapsed on them. Just because you're the only earth user in here, don't think that you're the only one who could protect everyone from some falling rubble."

With that he moved his gaze to the little wind user, not interested in anything Iva might have to say about his comment. "As for you, Beansprout, My test wasn't just to see how you'd react when sudden threat appears, but how you'd react to learning that it was nothing more than a silly test. If having to deal with a simple little test irks you so much then you might as well give up being a Keeper. Moving on."

It was Mikhail's turn, the one who seemed most upset about Orion's 'attack'. Or maybe it was the fact that he didn't actually have the chance to fight that pissed him off the most. "Your demon's got a hell of a lot more self-control than you, and not to mention sense. I did see that you took the time to scout the surrounding area around the church since you arrived early, so I give you props for that, but I'd recommend keeping your mouthing off to yourself from now on. Whether you like it or not, I'm now the Master of this guild and underestimating me wouldn't end well for you. Actually, that goes for all of you." Breaking eye contact with Mikhail and turning to once again face the whole guild, he continued. "The previous Master of this guild has been given an A rank and is now a Hunter for the Council, just to inform you all since I imagine those of you who actually care were probably curious as to why he's no longer here."

Another sigh escaped him and he took in a deep breath. Now that all that was out of the way he could at last get to the point. "There's been reports of Ruinosus terrorizing the forest eight miles from Olny. A hunting cabin has been attacked, the whereabouts of the couple who live there is unknown, and a train that runs through the area hasn't returned to the station for four days. Finding out what happened to the missing train and couple, as well as exterminating the Ruinosus threat from the area, is our mission. We're leaving as soon as the sun sets. I'll be outside until then. Oh, and we'll be walking the eight miles."

Orion lifted off from Kain's shoulder and hovered a foot above him as he made his way from the middle of the room to the front entrance. He found himself a place in the grass along the front all and sat down. Orion rested beside him, hastily working the dust and dirt from his wing feathers. It would only be an hour now before the sun would disappear behind the mountains and he would lead his first mission. Though he preferred doing things on his own, he had worked in teams before. Hopefully the members of this group wouldn't meet their ends so quickly.

Image"Your greatest weakness can become your greatest strength."


Alice laughed as each of the guild members, all but her and Von, confronted the so-called Guild Master. Amaterasu didn't say anything to bad, just that it was a test. One thing that made Alice twitch was Ila's complaint that the whole building could have caved in and killed them all. While Alice was busy twitching while Kain addressed every guild member that had crossed him.

"There's been reports of Ruinosus terrorizing the forest eight miles from Olny. A hunting cabin has been attacked, the whereabouts of the couple who live there is unknown, and a train that runs through the area hasn't returned to the station for four days. Finding out what happened to the missing train and couple, as well as exterminating the Ruinosus threat from the area, is our mission. We're leaving as soon as the sun sets. I'll be outside until then. Oh, and we'll be walking the eight miles."

Alice hadn't even processed what all he had said before breaking into a fit of mad laughter. "You're all so weak," Alice cackled, standing and pointing at them all. "If you honestly believe a falling building would kill us you don't deserve to be a part of this guild! We've defeated countless monsters over the years, but you were always the weakest! Why don't you all leave while you can so better Keepers can replace you hopeless causes!" Alice turned to face the outdoors, preparing to take off. "I'll take this on myself and show you all! Dark Wing!" The shadows around the room began to shake, making their way to their Master. Within seconds, large black wings, at least thirteen foot across, formed on her back. "See you never." Her manic laughter continued as she shot out the window. Gabriel himself winked as a good-bye, disappearing along with his Keeper.

"You sure are in a good mood," Gabriel laughed, buzzing along next to Alice in his shadow form. Her laughter continued on, seemingly endless.

"Those idiots stand no chance! I feel bad for the self-centered idiot for taking on our guild! Thinking he can give me orders when I've known him barely a moment. Pathetic!"

"You know he's a B rank, right? I don't think disobeying a direct order will color his fancy."

"If he doesn't like my style he can rid the guild of me! I don't need them and any guild would be more than happy to have me!"

Alice stopped in mid air as her wings disappeared. Anyone on looking might have assumed it was her spell timing out, but she had truly snapped out of her fit. She skillfully landed on her toes and stood quickly.

"I knew you'd snap out of it." Gabriel morphed to his beloved human form, landing next to Alice. She had remembered that around a year ago, she had promised the man that had taken her in that no matter what, she would obey all orders given. "A promise is a promise, aye?"

"I suppose ..." Alice balled up her fists and grunted. "Why did the old fart have to stop! Why would he give up us for being a Hunter? Dammit!" The Keeper punched a near by tree out of anger. Having the problem she did, the old Guild Master had become somewhat of a replacement of her father, and now he was gone too. "This ... this right here is why I don't bother with people. They all leave you in the end no matter what and leave you with a giant pile of rubble."

"I'll never leave you Master. I'll stay by your side no matter what," Gabriel cheered enthusiastically, leaping on Alice in a hug. Alice couldn't help but smile at her demon, laughing normally now. He was her best friend and she knew she could trust him. The Keeper hugged Gabriel tightly, her inner child shining. At that point, Alice decided to wait in the tree she had earlier hit. Once she saw her comrades, she would join in the journey to their next mission.

{ Forbidden Friendship || John Powell }

“I guess we’ve got some time to kill.”


Yeiji watched with amusement as Kain reprimanded the others for their angry or sarcastic outcries. He was glad the guildmaster was, or seemed to be, taking a bit of a liking to him. He was, however, still a bit embarrassed by Tempest’s tiny temper tantrum. At least it was small in comparison to Mikhail’s.

Once Kain had dismissed them, Yeiji looked up at the sky and noticed the setting sun. Perfect.

The first thing he did was turn and walk over to Ila. “Is everything ok? You didn’t get hurt or anything, right?” Yeiji asked, trying to hide the slight worry in his tone. He resisted the urge to put a hand on her shoulder. “That dramatic entrance was a bit unnecessary, but I’m sure there was some sort of method to his madness.”

Yeiji did his best to ignore Alice’s crazy, angry shenanigans going on the background. She honestly thinks that she’s so much better than Mikhail.

“We’ve got an hour or so until sundown. Want to help me with something?” Yeiji flashed his prize winning smile.

Tempest suddenly slammed into him from behind, and if not for his fast reflexes, he would has fallen on top of Ila. He pushed himself back with a puff of air, though he did momentarily tower over her. “Yeiji! You’re supposed to practice with me!” Her voice was loud and whine-y as she leaned against his back.

“Perhaps if you hadn’t been so disruptive and childish earlier, I would consider training with you. But you’re being rather immature today. I think you need a break.”

Tempest pouted, her eyes wide and begging for forgiveness. “Its not going to work this time.” He sighed, reaching out and stroking her previously abused ear. “I’m not angry. I just think you need to cool down for a bit. Good eat something and take a nap, alright?” His tone was soft and extremely soothing. Reluctantly, Tempest nodded, turning and trudging off.

Yeiji turned back towards Ila. “Ever wanted to know what its like to fly?” His grin was more playful this time.

"Von? Hey, Von!

The voice calling to him had registered, but he was too busy watching the others to formulate a response. That is, until the source of the voice begun to shake him.

"Hey! I know you're listening!"

"What is it, Rune?" He replied flatly, turning his focus over to his demon.

"So, are we gonna just ditch now as well or are we gonna wait with everyone else?" She replied, putting her hands on her hip in an obviously exasperated expression.

He once again turned his gaze towards the rest of the group, well, what remained of it at least. The Guild Master, Kain, had exited the building and was doing something just outside the church and Alice had flown off with her wings. From the people that still remained in the building, it appeared as though most were either conversing amongst themselves or just milling about. Basically his choices were to either head out now just as Alice had or wait alongside the rest of the guild members. Both choices seemed distasteful to him.

"What do you want to do, Rune? Would you rather stay here or move out now?" Von asked, throwing the decision onto her.

"Hmm... Well, I kinda wanna do both. Well, let's ask Kain for the location of the Ruinosus and if he tells us then we'll head out. If he doesn't then we stay."

With a small nod, Von made his way from one end of the church to the other, being sure to avoid others as best he could. With Rune in tail, he peeked out through a crack in the door and saw the Guild Master sitting down in the grass. Well, he still had his doubts about whether or not this person was a reliable leader. Now would be the perfect time to test it. He looked over at Rune and gave her a quick series of hand signals. Although she was surprised at the sudden turn of events, she did as told and blended into the shadows.

"Hope's Demise." Von whispered, channeling explosive shadow energy into one of his bullets. This would be his test to the leader. This world is a world where the strong kill the weak, that's what Von believed. If you die, it means you simply weren't strong enough. As such, if this plan got Kain killed then he was just weak. Despite that, Von limited the amount of energy he put into his bullet. He nodded in the general direction of where Rune should have positioned herself and took aim from the small opening in the doorway.

Rune had stayed silent up until now and remained silent even as she attacked. The cloaked Rune shadow traveled onto a branch of a tree nearby and from there commenced her part of the attack. Swiftly leaping off the branch, Rune unsheathed her blade and slashed at the other demon, Orion. Simultaneously, Von fired his bullet aiming for Kain.

Ila made sure to keep her cool and unusual silence as Amaterasu spoke followed shortly by the hotheaded, ever-annoying Mikhail. She blocked it out for a moment and took in a breath, focusing solely on the steady breathing of Mato at her side. As usual, Mato felt her pull and he slowed his breathing even more so that she could follow. Finally sure that she would not snap at anyone, Ila let herself come back to reality just as the new Guild Master graced her with his ever-so-kind words.

"...I'll start with Ila," she heard and snapped her head to attention. "Your main concern was the building collapsing, so you used your power to keep it as steady as you could. That was good support that you gave, but don't be so full of yourself. It would be pretty embarrassing for a guild as famous as Lone Sin to lose their lives because a building collapsed on them. Just because you're the only earth user in here, don't think that you're the only one who could protect everyone from some falling rubble."

Ila's breath began to quicken once more. Who did this guy think he was? Of course she knew they could take care of themselves. She wasn't an idiot. However, she also knew that it was not impossible for even a guild member as strong as those in Lone Sin to be hurt or worse if an entire building collapsed on them. Especially if they had other threats like dragons. Even as an Earth keeper, Ila knew that she could have been injured. 'Falling rubble' was not the same as 'an entire building that was already coming apart at the seams'.

"Well, it's good to know that our new Guild Master is great at making quick assumptions about people that are not necessarily true," Ila mumbled under her breath, and then added a bit louder so that he could hear, "And by the way, I might not love everyone in this guild, but I have never once implied that any of us were unable to protect ourselves."

With that, Ila focused once more on the breathing of the bear demon at her side in order to calm her own breath. As the new Guild Master explained their mission, Ila thought about the guild that she was part of. They were a strong guild, but there was some times that their differences got in the way of what they had to accomplish. Overall, they always finished their mission, but as she thought on the matter, Ila realized that maybe they did need to grow up. Of course, pride would not allow her to say this at the time, but Ila had never been unable to recognize her faults, and one of those faults was that she sometimes let emotion get in the way of her judgement which was, in theory, childish.

Ila was snapped out of her musing on the subject as Yeji appeared in front of her, “Is everything ok? You didn’t get hurt or anything, right? That dramatic entrance was a bit unnecessary, but I’m sure there was some sort of method to his madness.” Ila only had time to nod back in agreement as she was forced to focus on Alice's crazed shouts. Unable to stop herself, Ila shouted back as the Shadow Keeper took off, "If you're so great on your own, then leave. By all means, make things easier on us all." Mato gave a low growl beside her and Ila was not surprised to turn and find that he was growling at her. 'Why do you even bother anymore?' He asked her telepathically with enough anger to make Ila feel inferior. The Earth Keeper gave a silent sigh, knowing that he was right. Alice was not her problem unless she became her problem. 'Yeah, yeah, I know,' Ila shot back at her demon with defeat in her voice. This whole ordeal had put her on edge.

Just as Ila was about to send another telepathic message to Mato, Yeji began to speak again with a grin on his face. “We’ve got an hour or so until sundown. Want to help me with something?” Ila nodded at him with a smile as she gave another silent sigh, but this one was out of relief rather than exasperation. Yeji's cool and calm vibrations were a welcome relief from the high-strung vibrations of some of the other guild members that she had been focusing on moments ago. He was almost like Mato with his calming energy and Ila couldn't help but want to spend some time with that calming nature before they left on what would probably be a very tense trip.

The following interaction between Yeji and his demon made Ila cringe, but she knew that they had their own way of dealing with these things in the way that she and Mato did. As Yeji's demon sulked off in the other direction, Yeji turned his attention to her once more and asked, in a playful tone, “Ever wanted to know what its like to fly?”

Ila furrowed her brow and smiled, giving him a 'what-is-that-supposed-to-mean' look. "I mean I've never had my feet not be on something that was connected to Earth for more than ten seconds," she replied, letting a hint of nervousness into her voice, but not much. She thought for only a moment before adding, "But that doesn't mean that I don't wonder... I mean when you guys are flying around..." Ila let her voice trail off, hoping that he understood. It wasn't the height that Ila was afraid of. She loved climbing mountains and perching atop the tallest trees; however, in those cases she was always somehow connected to the Earth. What she disliked about the idea of flying was that she would be disconnected from the ground for a prolonged period of time, and not in all of her twenty years had that ever happened.

{ Air Balloon || Lily Allen }

“It’ll be fun, I promise.”


"I mean I've never had my feet not be on something that was connected to Earth for more than ten seconds."

“That’s understandable.” Yeiji was slightly surprised by Ila’s answer. He expected her to say something about not wanting to be disconnected from her element, but he was shocked that she didn’t outright deny his question. Though he did now just realize that way he asked it did sound a little odd…

"But that doesn't mean that I don't wonder... I mean when you guys are flying around..."

Yeiji could practically sense the nervousness coming off of her in waves. It was indeed an understandable reason. “Well, I guess I have to explain some things, first…” Yeiji cleared his throat and slipped his backpack off of his shoulders. He opened it up and looked around inside of it as he continued to speak. “As you may know, I can fly, but its not something… hrm, physical, I should say. Its all the wind. The wind simply supports my weight, therefore if I want to carry someone along with me, I need to be physically strong enough to hold onto them, but I do not need to be physically strong enough to actually carry them. Do you follow?” He spoke gently, making sure that he was explaining himself well. He pulled out a pair of flying goggles.

“If you do agree to help me, you should use these. It’ll keep that pretty long hair of yours out of your eyes.” That comment would’ve sounded very sleazy coming anyone else. But Yeiji kept a warm-hearted smile on his face, showing that his words were genuine. “Its all in concentration, really. I’ve been practicing flying with Tempest, y’know, in my arms and stuff. But I’ve also practiced simply having her “fly” with me. As in, she remains in her human form, and I levitate her either underneath me or next to me as I am flying as well.”

Yeiji crossed his arms, tilted his head to the side and tried to figure how to say the next part. “The thing about Tempest is that she can change forms within a second, so she has a sort of parachute if you will. Every flight we’ve had has been successful, but they’re all too… leisurely. There’s no tension or point to them if Tempest can fly for herself. I want to learn how to fly with other people because flying is so much more convenient than walking.” He let out a sigh, hoping that he wasn’t sounding like a complete idiot.

“Here’s my proposition. We fly around for a little bit, let you get used to it and stuff… And if you don’t mind it, then you let me fly with you to the mission site. At least part of the way, if that would be alright with you.”

Yeiji let out a quiet chuckle. “I hope this isn’t sounding too crazy.” He shook his head, still letting out quiet laughter. “It is a lot of fun though. I guess its just something you’re going to have to experience for yourself and tell me what you think.” He beamed down at her, his smile displaying nothing but happiness. “So, what do you say?”
