|{Face}|
Tals is pale and has a slim face with a defined jawline and cheekbones. Her eyes are a deep navy blue, she has a rather small nose and lips that seemingly fit her pixie-like face. Though she looks small her expressions give the appearance of an older soul, with her ever-smiling eyes .

|{Hair}|
Talia's hair is midnight black and cut short so that it isn't in the way. It is still long enough for her to wear up when she is working or training, and falls just around her shoulders with bangs.

|{Scars | Markings}|
Tals has a "beauty mark" just under her lip and scars on her knees and hands from years of training, work, and general clumsiness.

|{Built}|
Small and lithe, Tals is naturally slim and does have muscles from being in the military and the training. She has larger feet for her size, and a bigger chest, but none of this hinders her too much from being quick and small.

|{Physical Description}|
Talia is fit, to say the least. She is small, and is often misjudged for being weak, as she also is pale and thin, but she is very strong and muscular, and has defined muscles. Her hair has always been cut short so that it isn't a hassle and she keeps it down to frame her face. She is usually calm and collected, with a loose stance and easygoing facial expression to hide any discomfort or anger.

|{Personality}|
Talia appears very quiet, so many people assume that she is either shy or antisocial, which is not the case at all. In fact, Tals quite enjoys being around smaller groups of people, especially her friends or people that she can argue with. She is not afraid to state her opinion, even if it will get her in trouble and, like a lioness, she is stubborn when things don't go her way. She fights for her case and for things that she is passionate about, especially when they have to do with equality. Tals is outspoken when she must be and courageous, but she fears the Other Worlders because of her past with a rouge, though she is one of many who do so.

Though she does enjoy the company of others, Talia also enjoys and cherishes spending time in solitude. When she is alone she likes to play the violin, and think about life and the world. She is often found with a dreamy, far-off look on her face, as if she isn't entirely there, but that is only when she is thinking hard about things she could be doing or cures that could be found. Tals often loses track of time when she is doing things like working, and has learned to set alarms for herself or wear a watch at all times when she knows she has something to do.

Other than her emotions of anger or confidence, Talia rarely shows any expression unless she is with very close friends. She comes off as cold and strong because of this, both of which are true to a point, but she is primarily a kind person. As a human she is not very intimidating, especially as a healer and caregiver. Always ready for a fight, Tals is not someone you would want to cross if she was angry because of her training.

Selfless and driven, Talia wants to change the world one day. This shows in her work as a healer and charismatic personal personality. If you've gotten past the cold and shy front, you are lucky and precious to her. She protects her loved ones and most others at all costs, often hurting herself in the process, but never giving up.

|{Place of Origin}|
Nagoya, Japan

|{History}|
Talia grew up in an old, traditional-style house in Nagoya, where her parents first fell in love and married. She was born a very sickly child, and her mother, a skilled doctor, saved her life by performing an operation only days after she was born. It was her mother who nurtures Talia's love for helping and healing others, and her father's military background allowed for her to enlist as a medic in the forces.

Talia's little brother was born when she was two, and the pair have always been close, protecting each other and getting along surprisingly well for siblings. They took music lessons together as children, and Eiji was on his way to becoming a marine biologist when the incident occurred. When she was twenty, Talia met a man a year ahead of her who was also becoming a doctor for the military. He was smart, like her, and the two became great friends and soon lovers, Hideki proposed to her a year later, the night before they entered the force. Talia happily agreed and wore her ring proudly. When the two returned to her former home six-months later, they were greeted by her ecstatic parents and brother, who went to university nearby.

They were celebrating her mother's birthday and their wedding plans when it happened, a rouge Other Worlder, identified as an Orc, entered their home with fury, killing her parents and fiance out of pure rage and madness. Talia and her brother were injured, but not fatally, and Tals still remember's holding Hideki's hand as the light faded out of his eyes. she regrets not being able to save him and leaving him in his last moments to go and find her brother, who turned out to be screaming stark mad. Talia never found the motivation for the cold-blooded murder of her loved ones, and still assumes that there was no reason other than entertainment. She visits her brother in the mental hospital when she can, and always wears her engagement ring around her neck. In the three years since, her loss has become easier to deal with and push out of her mind, and she often immerses herself entirely in her work so that others won't suffer the same fate.

Her past seems bloody and horrifying, but Talia has always found some motivation to push through, and she plans on helping others and doing much more in the future to make those she once loved proud.

On the day when the two parties met, it was warm. The air sat, too heavy for April, and the cherry blossoms fell everywhere, like beautiful tears. The day seemed normal to most, like any regular day would be. Waking up, going to work, coming home to families and happy homes. But to those who knew what the night would bring, that this night could change the very world, well, those people had a very different kind of day.

A the House of Winds, preparation had begun the night before, just after nightfall and all through the night. But today they had more work to do, more rooms to clean and prepare, and more food to cook. They couldn't tell excitement from apprehension, but both seemed to be a change from the normal atmosphere, with bustling and working all for that night. This certainly was an abnormal day, for those residents of the House usually slept at this time, and as they finished in the early afternoon, that is just what they did, for they would need rest before the visitors arrived, though that sleep was restless for most.

The League of New Hope, too, had been hustling about all day, and they too had gotten less sleep that usual. There had been packing and polishing, informing and uniforming. This group had newly met each other, nearly a month ago, now, but they seemed to all get along for the most part, though each had their own separate views about this task. As the day drew on, each member reflected upon their own pasts and their mutual futures. The nighttime attacks by rogue Other Worlders had been rising, and it would soon be time to take a stand. But first, they would need to meet their comrades in arms.

Night was falling. Ordinary people returned home while extraordinary beings prepared for a change of their fates.

Talia huffed as she set her large suitcase down at the edge of the forest where the team was supposed to meet. She had another bag on her back, that was an army bag, filled with all of her medical supplies that she could fit into the thing without breaking anything. She was slightly sweaty, because the air had been hot and sticky under the sunlight that day, which was finally setting.

She had packed in the morning and then taken a two-hour nap, which she hoped could help her through the night as she would soon have to switch over to the Other Worlder’s nocturnal schedule. Tals took off her blue sweater, leaving her in her tucked in shirt and plaid skirt.

She stretched like a cat, trying to get ready for the hike ahead of the crew to the House of Winds. She had only found out about the place a couple of months ago when they recruited her for the job, and it interested and frightened her. She didn’t know if she would be afraid when she got there, what if the said something offensive? What if they didn’t like her? It was hard to set her worries aside.

Her hand automatically reached up the hold the ring that hung on a chain around her neck, as it always did when she was thinking about something. She hoped that she was ready for this, she certainly knew that she was ready to save other people from sharing the same past that she had.

The Sun had just begun to set and Tals looked down at her watch. It was nearly six o’clock, when they were all supposed to meet in this location. Her nervousness had plateaued at this point, leaving her anxious but curious. She wondered what these Other Worlders were like, if they were cold-hearted killers or seemingly normal people. She began to run through her packing checklist in her mind one last time just in case she was missing anything. Pajamas? Check. Working tools? Check. Violin? Check. Undergarments and enough clothing? Check. It should have been pretty impossible to forget anything since she knew that there wasn’t much that she was leaving behind.

She had tried to leave behind her fear, but that hadn’t worked, even with all of the breathing exercise she had legitimately tried. She took a deep breath anyway and continued waiting for the others to arrive. She hated being late, so had purposefully arrived fifteen minutes early just in case there was a change of plans or she had forgotten something and had to go back. But she hadn’t, and deep down she knew that these plans were final.

The caw of a crow caught her attention and she looked up at it. Was it a warning or a good luck charm? She didn’t know. She didn’t want to know. Talia was as ready as she could be, that much, she knew as she stood, looking more relaxed that she felt out on the edge of the forest, ready for an adventure.

"....." Hot. It was really hot. Luckily the scent of Dietrich's decomposition was masked by a light coating of cologne, as if he could even smell it. He had been slaving away at the stove hours before, being one of the few who could cook a decent, human edible meal. Now, being the new face of the House of Winds, he felt the need to be the first ready to greet the humans that came to reside with them.
His eyes fell onto the setting sun, a large crow soaring just above the blinding light as he was sitting out on the front steps. It reminded him of an old German tale about Odin's watchful ravens. It seems that Odin might be watching this transaction, marking it as an important event.
He appreciated the light breeze that blew through the front steps of the large compound, running a hand through his colorless hair. He was going to welcome humans into his life again after four years. He was full of uncertainty and worry. He had yet to have a blackout attack like when he first woke up as a creature of the night, but he didn't ever want to test that out.
He placed his thumb into his other hand, closing his right eye as he stared out into the forest. He knew that those in the house knew what to do if he lost it, he made it extremely clear as to how to tame him to those of the House of Winds and his brother. Though not wanting to scare off the League of Hope, he neglected to inform them. He trusted his people and his brother to keep him in check.
He let out a long breath that he hadn't realized he was holding, he pulled himself up to his feet, dusting off his jeans. He steeled himself, telling himself it'll be fine.

Image
"Caw!"
Erik's eyes looked up into the darkening trees, the hot, sticky wind not doing much to cool him. A cigarette was hanging from his lips, a lightly backed bag was draped across his shoulder with his hands resting inside his jean pockets. The collar of his light blue dress shirt was blown by the breeze, drawing possible attention to the bandage about his neck. He took a deep inhale of his cigarette before tying up his long hair into a ponytail.
From this day on, he'd be living at the House of Winds along side his younger brother. He had been working hard for the past four years to get into the position that he had. He leapt at the idea the moment it left the higher up's mouth. It didn't take him long to organize this whole ordeal, after all, he was the brother of the current head of house. He used that as leverage to be let on this whole project.
As he walked down the path, his eyes fell onto a young woman fiddling with something about her neck. It was their medic, Talia. He recalled that in the short month he had known her that she was very prompt and timely. He could tell from a mile away the the woman's nerves were rising despite her calm appearance. He couldn't deny he was feeling the same. He wanted the best for his brother, and this project would work towards that goal.
He dimmed out the light of his cigarette, crushing it and tossing it into an empty pocket of his bag. He approached the woman with a gentle smile.
"Guten abend, Miss Iwamoto. Early as usual it seems." He spoke in a calm manner, eluding to a sense of calm despite his excitement. His German accent was thick on every word. "Today is a very important day. Let us hope it all goes well, ja?"

Stupid freakin' heat.

Yoi's complaints about the hot evening went unnoticed by the lack of anyone else. It was unbearably warm, at least in his opinion, and even more so when your body automatically generates more heat than the average day-to-day person. What wonderful weather to welcome our new human colleagues... Yoi stopped his incessant sarcastic monologue as he neared the meet-up location. Despite the heat, he was rather eager to meet the people who were meant to be his new friends and companions.

The first thing he noticed was the scent of cologne, which he'd smelled as soon as he got within half a mile of the place. Yoi didn't dislike the guy, nor did he like him, simply because he didn't know him well enough for either opinion. Yoi had been living at the House of the Winds for almost six years and he had yet to make any close friends, or even many acquaintances. He just wasn't a very social person. Most of his time was spent with Akari these days, and sometimes her friends as well.

As he got closer to the area, he realized that the cologne scent was coming from Deitrich. Probably to mask his smell or something similar. It was understandable, no one wants to smell like death and decay all the time, right? Yoi didn't judge the guy for that fact and didn't really mind the fact that he was a Vampire (and a German one at that) like some others did. He didn't understand how some people could be uncomfortable around a Nachzehrer when there were way worse Other Worlders around.

Yoi picked up the pace a little bit and made his way over to where Deitrich was standing, his hands tucked into the pockets of his jeans. He'd started to regret the choice to wear black jeans and a black t-shirt considering the color attracted heat, even if it was getting dark out. He'd also neglected to tie his hair up or bring a hairtie, so now his neck was sweating more than usual. However, the sun was setting, so hopefully the temperature would be lowering sometime soon.

"Hey. Anyone else here yet?"

He couldn't see, hear or smell anyone else nearby, but Yoi figured he might as well make an attempt at friendly conversation while he had the opportunity. After all, his mother was always telling him that he needed to spend time with people other than his sister. She kept reminding him that Akari wouldn't be a kid forever, and that at some point he'd have to interact with people his age, whether voluntarily or not. So for now he tried to find a conversation starter.

A stupid question was apparently all he could think of.

"If they get lost in the forest, do you think we have permission to laugh at them?"

"Both bosses inquire to my progress on gathering medical data concerning the human brain. Have not acquired any data as of yet due to a lack of willing volunteers. Currently testing on fully matured pigs. Not satisfactory or remotely helpful in reaching the goal in question. Must remember to confront Dr. Himura about the subject."

Haruka wiped the drops of blood off her worktable and tossed her unfinished notes in the wastebasket. She'd been deprived of any willing subjects for such a long while that she'd eventually gotten tired of waiting and resorted to practicing medical incisions on her own body. Her experiments proved completely useless, since any injury to her skin disappeared in seconds, and she found herself unable to get any data of any kind. Haru was slowly getting more restless and at the moment was listening to one of the recordings she'd made in her days as a crazy, insane, mad scientist at her old laboratory.

Finally noticing the time on the clock, Haru realized she'd have to leave soon if she didn't want to be the last person to make it to the meet up. There was always that one person who was late to everything, and she definitely did not want to be that person. Haru stood quickly and hung up her white lab coat before locking up her makeshift laboratory and heading out. In reality, her little "Laboratory" was just a small shed she'd been allowed to take over. It was pathetic.

Haru reached the meet-up location not long after and realized she was actually one of the first to arrive. So far, the only other people there were Yoruichi and Deitrich, two of her younger neighbors. She'd always despised the fact that both boys were at almost a meter taller than her despite being several years younger. However, today was not a day to be cruel and show her dislikes of others. Today way the day she'd told herself to be mellow, and in no way scare off anyone, especially not the new humans she was to meet. She'd been specifically told not to scare them of by a significant amount of people.

"Good evening, boys. I take it no one else has arrived yet, since there isn't anyone else around."

Her odd way of starting conversations was something she actually liked, since people's reactions to it told her whom she would be able to get along with and whom she would not. Commonly it was those who kept their interest in the abnormal woman that she ended up befriending, although she hadn't found anyone like that at the House of the Winds as of yet. Then again, she hadn't really been looking, so perhaps there were a lot of people like that whom she simply hadn't met yet.

It was around the time she stopped walking that she finally noticed the heat. It wasn't as dramatic for her as it would have been for others, somehow she just had this innate ability to withstand nearly any amount of heat. She absolutely hated any kind of cold and due to that this level of heat was perfectly fine in her eyes. Not that it mattered much.

I get the feeling this is going to be a rather awkward conversation.

"Perfect...."

The rubber wheels of the bike screeched as the motorcycle slid across the pavement, Riding a motorcycle was a practice that Xander only was just beginning to grasp as a concept, Though he wouldn't be damned if it wasn't fun, Of course he thought that cars were the superior mode of transportation, But cycling was badass, It was quick, But it wasn't painless, His face married the pavement more times then one. Though, sometimes a little change in someones life could might as well save it.

SCREECH!, once more, The motorcycle lets out a ear-bursting sound as rubber meets road, A flock of birds perched on a nearby tree flee as a decibel filled blast scares them away. A single thought almost stops Xander in his tracks, Did I remember to pack everything?, Not a single thought crossed his mind on what was in his backpack.

Xander slammed the brakes of his motorcycle, He couldn't forget something now, As un-eager he was to converse with "them", If he forgot something he would fail to maintain his prestigious and refined figure. Xander tore through his back, Going through, A million red coats, Paper runes, comb, and toothbrush before stopping at a small paperweight sized book, Xander then letting out a sigh of relief, Before organizing his things and getting back on the road.

Xander pondered what living with monsters would be like, But it wasn't thoughts of happiness, Of course, Somewhere in the bottom of his heart he wants this change, But his cold-blooded mind and hot-blooded soul doubted that thought to the fullest extent. Thoughts of trustworthiness and regret clouded his mind. Xander attempted to wash away the ideals, by shaking his head repeatedly, However that didn't really help, at least when he was driving, A large oak tree came into sight in the front view.

Xander jerked the handle bars left, narrowly avoiding an all-expenses-not-paid trip to the hospital, a sigh of relief escaped Xander's lips, However, his victory was short-lived, As his life flashed before his eyes, Before his face met bark of another un-conveniently placed oak.

"Xander, Xander....Edward!". Gear was repeatedly shaking him, Xander getting dizzier by the minute, "Alright Alright, Stop shaking me" Xander shakily responded. "Oh, Heh, Sorry, You kind of spaced out, You okay?" Gear asked, Patting Xander on the head, Gear's ecstatic mood was quite obvious, He was skipping like a school girl and smiling like a goddamn kid at Disneyland. "Yeah, Don't worry about it, I'm fine", But in truth, He was anything but, He flunked, He messed up, His grades would make any parent dishonor him and cut his branch from the family tree. That was what he was feeling, Regret, Living everyday like it is your last will eventually make it that, But this was his brother's big day, When he was finally accepted into a prestigious collage. It was his.

Stopped cold, The Horogium brothers stopped in front of a scrawny looking boy, His neck could be snapped like a toothpick, And his body could be crushed with his pinkie, but why was Xander scared? He felt something, Murderous intent. The boy opened his mouth to speak. "Congrats, I applaud you, You took my spot, All my life I was praised, I was the best, And soon, I'll retain my title", Xander shielded Gear as the boy's arm turned into a black claw, Slashing Xander on the back and leaving him on the ground, Xander was forced to watch as his own brother was crushed, His last words being muted out by the sounds of pain. When the demon was finished, He walked over to the injured Xander and spoke his last words.


"Heh, This memory, It's painful, Isn't it?

Xander's eyes jerked open, As he felt his head to see if he was still alive, He glanced at his watch, And slowly got up, brushing himself off. He wasn't late, But he rather get there at least a bit early, He climbed onto his motorcycle and rode off, Taking off a nearby ramp, His motorcycle barely landing away from the group, His eyes shifted to blonde man and black haired woman.

"Hello there, When do we go up? I'm kind of craving some well-earned sleep"

Николаи ΠŸΡƒΡ†Ρ‡Π΅Π½ΠΊΠΎ


Nikolai had packed and checked his gear the day before as he always did before a mission. This allowed him to rest that morning in preparation for his new night life. Having scouted the meeting place over the past few weeks, ever since he was told were it was, he made his way quickly and quietly to his snipers perch around noon and setup. His perch was a tree about 350 meters away with a narrow but clear line of sight to the meeting area. He spent the rest of the day in his perch thinking about what lead him to this mission as he watched the area through his scope.

He could remember joining the Spatnaz and meeting his new team. He had been with the arm but this new team, and the Spatnaz blow all that away. He recalled every mission, every kill, the first time he fought an other worlder. They had been tasked to take a group of rogue other worlders near Moscow. After taking out of few real quick and easy the rest made a run for it. They were ordered to follow and find out were they were hidden. This brought them to Volgograd, were they found a large group waiting to attack the city. In such a target rich envierment the team had no problem having fun, till Nikolai shot a guy straight through the heart. He went down but when he rescanned the area there was no body, no sign it had been dragged off and the team wasn't picking anything up. Just then movement, the guy had gotten up and moved to a ledge above the team. Without wasting a second Nikolai switched to his 12.7Γ—108mm rounds and reacquired. This time when he shot the round found its mark, just as he was jumping, right between the eyes. The head exploded, showering the ledge with blood and dropping a headless body in front of the team.

This brought him to the last mission with his team... the reason he is so cold and the reason he hated all other worlders. The mission was to take place in a location even the Spatnaz don't go, an isolated location in Northern Russia. The whole mission felt wrong even before they left, "Under the cover of day." he whispered as he recalled the briefing. It didn't take long for the mission to go wrong, first the transports got bogged down far from the objective, which delayed them and made it so most of the mission was done in the middle of one of the worst blizzards he ever saw. Then there was the town, the mindless patrols, the bodies, the sealed up base, the sole survivor, Tash... His thought interrupted by a fimiler face in his scope giving him the all clear, it was Tash. Nikolai grabbed his gear, climbed down and packed up his ghillie suit before walking over to her. "Prizet tovarishch Tasha. Ready?" He said as he grabbed his dog tags with his free hand. Placing his rifle bag on the ground he salutes her.

Having been tought by experiance Natasha was always pack, that and she never stayed in one place that long. So when she got word that Nikolai wanted help on a job she jump for it. After all it was time to move again and he was the one who found her and saved her. Not a day goes by were she doesnt think back to that day, the day she almosted killed the guy who would later save her. She wasnt to happy when she heard what the job was but she was also glad to come along just incase things got "fun".

"But really... did he forget were he found me? Did he forget what happend there? Now I have to stay with those things?" she quietly asked herself as the reality of the mission set in. "Does he want me to attack them so he can kill them and clam he did so to protect me...? Well..." She checked her pistols before holtering them. Grabing her two packs she left the abandon apartment she had been staying in and made her way towards the meeting spot. Since she technicly didnt exest she didnt mind being a squater. It was a good day for a walk since she slept the morning away and the heat felt good being so accustomed to the cold weather of the north. Tring not to think about the past to much knowing her mind would go back to her "hometown", to the day she meet and almost kill Nikolai, to the day she watched a Spatnaz squad get torn apart, she tried to foucus on today. "Just get through today. Just get passed the meet and get you can do it." Just the see saw a caw of crow fly over head, "Great not a good sign. Got to hurry before he does anything stupid." She ran the rest of the way to the meeting. When she got close she could tell he wasnt there yet, which probibly meant he was scoping out the place. So she smiled and gave the all clear sign hopping he would see it. Sortly there after Nikolai showwed up, "Prizet tovarishch Tasha. Ready?" She was already tired and wanted today to be over but couldnt let him know, "Privet, i konechno ya pochemu?" At that moment she relized they weren't alone. "ello you two. Hov are you? Ready for this?"

The German smiled as the three approached one after another, his team filling up and pretty much ready to take on the short hike to the House of Winds. Erik knew that he was probably the only one looking forward to this, though it did not make him feel all that isolated. It was perfectly normal to distrust something you've never had compassion for. He may very well have ended up like most of them if it were not his brother.
He placed a finger to the frame of his glasses, pushing them up as he gave a faint smile. He was proud of this newly found team and their bravery and willingness to at least somewhat push their resentment aside for the sake of the mission. He placed a hand on the middle part of Xander's handle bars, leaning on his arm.
"It seem like we are all here, ja? I think it's no problem if we head up there soon." His eyes trailed up into the darkened sky, tapping his fingers on the bike in thought. He then pushed himself off the bike walking over to the pair of trees with overlapping branches. He rapped a knuckle against the bark.
"It's about a twenty minute walk, mien cohort und some others should be at the front to greet us. There's a hot meal und warm bed waiting for each of us. I expect you all to get some good rest." He was aware that they probably would not be comfortable with sleeping around creatures. He, however, had a longer night waiting for him. He was more determined to meet the new sleeping schedule, and beside he had more work to take care of and handle. It was mostly busy work that he could probably easily push onto someone else, but his men, and women, needed rest and he felt rather restless. Almost excited even.
He motioned for the illustrious League of Hope to follow as he climbed uphill a rather winding path way. Naturally he didn't get lost despite his brother's poor instructions. After fifteen some odd minutes, the tip of a rooftop of a traditional Japanese compound could be spotted between the trees.

Talia saw Erik approach from afar, she hadn't spoken to him much, she hadn't really spoken to anyone much, it wasn't her thing, but he seemed exceptionally nice. He greeted her in his native German and she could smell the left over cigarette smoke on his breath. It wasn't an unpleasant smell for Tals, her father had smoked sometimes.

"Kon'nichiwa," she replied, smiling up at the man. "Aye, I feel uncomfortable being late, it makes me nervous." She had practiced speaking English for many years and had an accent only on some words.

"Today is a very important day. Let us hope it all goes well, ja?" He said in his gentle voice. Was he excited? She couldn't quite tell. She nodded her head vigorously though.

"I suppose I am nervous, but I'm sure all will go well." She shrugged and rubbed her hands together. "It's been so long though, there are bound to be some differences between us." Just then, the white haired man rode up on his motorcycle and Talia nodded a greeting at him.

"We'll go when everyone's here so no one gets lost," she studied Xander, who seemed rather tense about something. She hoped he was going to be okay, it would be a long mission if he wasn't. When the two others appeared, Talia felt a stirring in her gut. They were all here now, it wouldn't be long until she had to face her fears and regrets. She would push through, she was sure that everything would work out.

"Ello you two. Hov are you? Ready for this?" Natasha said in greeting. Talia nodded at her and Nikolai, who seemed always serious, but Tals trusted him. She turned towards Erik for his instructions, as he was the leader, after all. They were off then, looking forward to warm beds and meals. Talia knew she wouldn't sleep for a while, she would have to get adjusted to the new times she'd be awake for. With a huff she threw her backpack over her shoulders and picked up her other bag. This would be a long walk with so many things to carry.

Surprisingly though, it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be, though she was rather sweaty. The House was in the distance now, she could see it, and she checked behind her to weigh everyone's emotions. Were they as nervous as she was? She supposed they had to be, to some degree. She adjusted her bag in her hand and looked back again, smiling this time.

"Well, it's begun, now, hasn't it?"

Athena tilted her head to the side, wondering what could have brought this on. Perhaps they could read her more easily than she thought? Or maybe she wasn't as good as putting on airs as she believed? "I'm fine," Athena replied although whether she was trying to convince herself or them was the real question. "What's with you guys?" Athena mumbled and reached for the food, full well knowing it wasn't for her and stealing a bite. "You should be more concerned with yourself Dietrich, isn't it your brother who's leading the group of humans?" Athena wasn't trying to be rude, she just didn't want to draw attention to herself or her past. Very few people knew where Athena really came from and she hoped to keep it that way.

The crunch of underbrush drew her attention to the open doors, the heat hardly bugging Athena as she had dressed appropriately for tonight's weather. "It seems our new housemates are here," she said, rising to greet them. Not that Athena was excited, she wasn't, in fact she was rather dreading the place she had come to think of has her home having to open up to human's. To Athena, humans were nothing more than bugs, buzzing around and attempting to invade everything good that had ever come into her life. She was not about to let them ruin the House of Wind, even if it meant taking on each human herself. The people that resided in this home were precious to her and Athena would hate to see them hurt.

With that in mind she went to the door, spotting the first of the humans emerging from the forest. It was a girl, her short black hair cropped close to her face with eyes that seemed to carry an unspoken burden. For a moment Athena thought she might be wrong, that this girl couldn't possibly be human but behind her more of them followed and she swallowed, fidgeting with the key that was on a chain around her neck. Should she speak? Wait for them to? Athena straightened her back, trying to appear more confident than she felt and went down the steps to greet them. Perhaps Dietrich should have been doing this, after all, he was the leader, but it was too late to turn back now. "Welcome," Athena said as they all came into view. She would wait for the others in the house before saying or doing anything else. She meant well, but Athena could never tell what tricks the humans had up their sleeves.

Dietrich watched the young girl exit the house, a small sigh leaving his lips. That little girl was braver than he was.
"Nein, Amamiya. Gut mornin'." He nodded towards the very elegant woman, usually quite the crowd pleaser with her gentle visage. Each member here today had a reason to be here. Dietrich of course had no choice, being the head of house. Yoi was there simply because he was one of the few thinking positively about this. Aika, since she doesn't appear to be threatening in the least. Haruka being among the more mature ones would help out Dietrich with her presence. And Athena since he thought it might be a good experience for her.
After a moment, attempting to calm himself down, he stepped outside himself. He walked casually, appearing to be calm despite his racked nerves. His lips subconsciously found their way to his sleeve, nibbling at cloth as he stood behind Athena. Compared to the young woman's brave efforts, he felt like a child in hiding. He was so self absorbed into his worry of losing control, he didn't even realize that the night air had begun to cool.
"Welcome." This one word drew the attention of Dietrich, causing him to look up. A small group of five stood before them. In front was a young woman who hardly looked any older than him. In fact, most of them looking pretty young, except the giant Russian guy. He pulled his sleeve from his mouth as he addressed the group. Seems like he wasn't the only one letting a woman take take the lead. Not that there was anything wrong with that.
"Welcome to the House of Winds. I'm Dietrich Kahn, head of house." He then indicated to the young woman that stood before him. "This is Athena Usagi. We're part of the welcoming crew." He side stepped from behind the young woman, nodding to her as he walked past her towards the group, showing her that she did well. He stopped a few feet from the humans, pleased that he didn't feel any odd urges. He looked to his brother.
Image
Erik had clasped his hands together, his eyes sparkling in pride. His little brother was putting on such a brave face and didn't reek of decay. He stepped forward as did Dietrich. They formally shook hands before hugging each other with their other arm. Once they pulled away, he cleared his throat, mostly speaking to the girl beside Dietrich and those who'd be following behind.
"Ich bin Erik Kahn." He introduced himself in his usually thick accent. "I am head of the unit League of Hope." He gave a gent;e and caring smile as he looked over all the other worlders. He felt no malice towards them, nor did he care if they hated him. He had to accept each one as they are in order for this to work. No matter what, this absolutely had to work. Erik would place his life on the line for this mission, which is probably why he was allowed to take the lead on it.
Once paired together, the brothers whom seem to look nothing alike have actually quite a few similarities. The kind of clothing they adorned were very similar in style, probably due to the seclude tastes they had growing up. They both had bandages about their necks and, though a bit different in placement and number, they each had pierced ears. Other than that, they looked like polar opposites with Dietrich's short hair and red eyes compared to Erik's long hair and blue eyes. Their hair and eye color was the same at on point however.
Erik gesture towards the four people behind him. "We are the humans who will be accompanying you this day on, ja? Let us all get along." He and Dietrich stood a bit off to the side so the others could greet one another.

Aika gave a small yet gentle smile to Deitrich as the Leader of the House greeted her in return. On the other hand, Athena emphasized that she was fine and if that was so, she has nothing against nor is she going to revoke it. In response, she gave a small nod implying her understanding. Then, Athena stated that the League of New Hope composed of humans had finally arrived. Hearing that, Aika turned to look at her companions who had been selected to participate in this treaty. She was not opposed as long as no one from her family is harmed. There would be no reactions coming from here. Instead, she will do her best to ensure everyone's safety and health as her way to help.

"I believe it is time, let us welcome them." She softly said as she felt a bit more better. It seemed that the evening winds was bringing a colder drift which was a good thing. Athena went on ahead and soon, Deitrich followed. She followed behind the two with her graceful movements that one would be reminded that of illustrious noble ladies with a tinge of delicacy found in a rhythmic movement of a dance.

Athena was the first one to offer her welcome as her ombre-colored eyes gazed at the humans whom they would be working together for the sake of peace. Her eyes did not hold any kind of resentment or fear. She was calmly looking at them without any hint of strong emotion, just a normal one.

They are a group of 5, just like them. They have 3 males and 2 females. They all seemed young much how they are or some of them appear as. Well, except for the male who presented himself with such thickness that cannot be ignored. It was clear he is of military stock and one very obstinate about it. Her observations was disturbed when Deitrich finally spoke.

She had been told that the leader of the human group was Deitrich's brother. That is a wonderful thing to be reunited with family. She knew the comfort of what that familial bond could bring. She had siblings too, once upon a time. Looking at the two brothers, they were contrasting yet complimentary in many ways. She could only say that they were a pair. The exchange between the two was pleasing and warm. She could not help but express a kind smile at the scene. After that hug, the one known as Erik introduced himself to them and wished that they all get along. She was happy that their leader felt the same way.

"Yes, we also wish for such bonds to exist between us. It is a pleasure to meet you Erik-san. My name is Amamiya Aika." Her voice resonated with such soothing tone, something not forced but normal for her. She gave them a polite bow of the head and then gave them gentle smile. "I am the Healer here at the House of Winds. If there is anything that you require or would like assistance to, please do not hesitate to ask me." This might be seen as a simple courteous greeting, but in Aika's case, this was sincere and without any pretenses. "I will aid you as much as possible." Then, she left it at that for now. She gazed at the others to introduce themselves.

When they were done, she gazed at Deitrich. "Our Leader has prepared for your accommodations and also a meal has been arranged." There was a soft yet proud look flashing across her multi-colored eyes which was probably the main identifier that she is not as human as she appears to be. "Please, do come in and make yourselves at home." After saying that, she stepped aside to allow Deitrich and the human group to enter first.

She truly hopes that everything about this alliance would go well and would open many doors for all of them. This is an opportunity for both of them to understand each other. Something that they lack at the moment.

Slowly, the other members of the House started to come into meeting. Haru was first. She extended her greeting to Yoi and Dietrich, her odd method of starting conversation seeming normal under the circumstances, and making Yoi a bit jealous of her ability to effortlessly withstand the weather. Athena was next, excited about food and exchanging a bright and happy hello. And, last but not least, Aika wandered in with her water bottle and simplistic charm. They were all ready, ready to wait.

Let's just hope they get here soon. It'd suck if they got lost in the woods, then they'd have to listen to me laugh at them for hours~

Yoi smirked and almost laughed. He sort of felt bad about wanting to laugh at their new human colleagues, but for all he cared they'd laugh with him, or at least think it was somewhat funny. He remembered humans being pretty humorous, and he didn't think that would change anytime soon. He hoped so. Yoi had thought of humor as one of the things he enjoyed most living in the city, it was always interesting even if it didn't make any sense. Most Other Worlders were too caught up in their own lives or problems to care much about being funny or interesting.

"Kita, your sister is in good hands and has good friends. You don't need to worry about them hurting her."

It seemed that Dietrich had started his speech to the group members. Addressing Haru first, then Yoi, and then Athena, so he was apparently going by order of age. It was soon after that Aika decided to wander in and join them, greeting the group in a cheerful but calm manner with Yoi rather liked. Aika offered some of her water to Yoi, who declined as politely as he could. "Thank you Aika, but I should be fine." His voice was calmer than would be expected in such a situation. He didn't want to be overbearing to his friends, nor the new human visitors.

Sure enough, the five humans soon arrived, coming into sight before Yoi could catch their scents. The wind must've been going to opposite direction. Surprisingly enough it was Athena who was the first to acknowledge the newcomers, extending a warm but somewhat strained welcome as they fully came into view. Dietrich said his hello next. Yoi remembered their leader explaining that the leader of the human group was actually his brother, odd as it seemed. Yoi thought it rather interesting.

As the rest of the group members extended their little greetings and welcomes and speeches, Yoi made a small wave and an attempt to smile without being awkward. "Well, since just about everyone else at our House has made your acquaintance, I guess its my turn. I'm Yoruichi Kita. Nice to meet you all, I guess." Yoi hoped he didn't sound uncomfortable. If he did, maybe no one would notice. He didn't exactly want anyone to think he was avoiding them or didn't want to know them, for he truly did, to say the least. All of this was rather exciting, wasn't it?

"Himura, I know you won't do anything too crazy, just keep in mind that they are not here to be tested on."

"Yeah, yeah, I get it..."

Haru wasn't too thrilled about having to hold back her urges when all these perfect specimens would be just within her grasp for who-knows-how-long. She would be working extra hard to get in some data on behavior and personality traits while they were around. Hopefully they wouldn't mind the staring if she assured them it as for the sake of science. If they did mind, well, she'd just have to do it from a distance then. Haru wasn't the type of person who had a sense of "personal space" and tended to bypass the fact that people migh be uncomfortable with her. Maybe that's why she trusts so easily...

Her thoughts were whipped from herself to the group of bodies climbing up over the hill. Haru leaned against the doorway, completely ignoring Aika's arrival, her eyes glued to the humans. Pure beauty, all of them. Her eyes twinkled with a sense of excitement, and not in the normal sense, for in her mind she was envisioning the results she could get from five completely different body types. The skinny underaverage female, the average male, the muscular female, and the very very muscular male. All of them could provide the very data she wanted oh so badly.

Isn't this exciting Haru? Now you just might be able to get those volunteers you need...

Haru shook the thought from her mind and forced herself to remember what Dietrich had said about the humans not being test subjects. Oh, but if only they were. Dietrich hadn't said she couldn't test on them, he'd simply said that wasn't what they;d come to he House of the Winds for. And she knew that. But her respectful leader had left quite a lot of holes in his words to the woman, and Haru was most certainly going to use every single one of those holes to her advantage if she could. Surely they couldn't evict her from her home if they volunteered for the job, right?

Nonetheless, Haru was determined to befriend these humans to some extent. Friendships and acquaintances make people easier to convince and manipulate into doing something than complete strangers. Haru stepped down the steps onto the grass and took a formal Japanese bow.

"Good evening, and welcome. My name is Dr. Himura and I am here to answer all your science questions, whatever they may be~"

Her voice was rather sinister, to say the least, but she doubted anyone but the other House members would have noticed it. She'd found humans to be quite daft in the past and hadn't really expected them to change much since then. But you never know, perhaps these humans were more intelligent than the ones she'd tested on before, after all, they had been chosen out of many others...

Talia stood a few steps behind Erik when he moved forward as the Other Worlders introduced themselves. Some of them seemed eager and others more cautious. She observed them all one by one, wondering how they each got to the House. The girl Athena stepped up first eagerly, and then the leader spoke to them. He definitely looked like Erik, so this was why the brother had been so interested in leading this crew to the House.

Behind her she felt tensions rise, and she turned slightly to see Natasha and Nikolai tense, hands reaching for their weapons, but looking confused when Erik spoke. "We are the humans who will be accompanying you this day on, ja? Let us all get along." Talia smiled internally at his warm statement, he certainly wanted them all to become comrades. Perhaps even comrades in arms.

She hoped they would understand that there would hopefully be no means for trouble. The brothers stepped aside now, waiting for the two groups to introduce themselves to each other. A young woman then stepped forward and introduced herself as the healer of the group, Amamiya Aika. At this point, Tals set her bags down quietly, one on top of the other and also stepped forward and to bow politely, as it was custom as Aika had just done.

β€œThank you for welcoming us so graciously. I am Talia Iwamoto, the medic of our group, I hope we may get along, I look forward to getting to know you all.” Her voice was quiet, as it normally was, but it did not waver or relay her nervousness. After rising from her bow she smiled and two others introduced themselves. The first, Yoruichi, was quieter than the second, Dr. Himura. They both seemed to be curious, though Yoruichi seemed less inclined to show his curiosity.

Tals smiled at them and nodded as well then looked expectantly at the three other members of their human party, waiting for them to step forward and introduce themselves, though they seemed more tense than Erik and she. She felt scared, yes, but these Other Worlders seemed like normal people when introducing themselves. It was as if a rush of excitement had stripped her of her initial fear. She just hoped that this rush of outgoingness would last, otherwise it would be a very long night.

"Tch...."

Xander was not one to introduce himself, At least to "them", but dominance must be proven, After all, They needed something to say after Master, or King, or....

Xander was lost in his own thoughts, This "experience" would prove to either suck, or suck more, So Xander wanted to get the most of it, Even if he had to squeeze it out personally. He is the self-proclaimed "guard" of the human party, Stating that if anything went wrong, he had to spill some blood, Whether it is the out-worlders, or something else entirely. Xander lightly parked his motorcycle, slamming the kickstand and propping the motorcycle.

"We are the humans who will be accompanying you this day on, ja? Let us all get along." Erik announced, much to Xander dismay, Of course, Xander still wanted some kind of agreement of peace, But more on a distant level, Humans of course, Must be at the end of the food chain, or something like that, Xander was happy for the king, because of his reunion with his long-lost white haired brother, But his thoughts were still a bit conflicted, I mean, It's easy to get along with your brother, even if he has..."changed", however it wouldn't be a walk in the park for the rest, even Xander knew that. This change was well-unwanted, and well.....difficult.

The tension decided to come out, as the man of the army himself expressed his thoughts of discomfort, Not the wisest decison, Considering the humans are on their ground, but the only thing Xander had for Nikolai Puchenko was respect, a truly intimating and trustworthy man indeed, Xander himself could tell that in a tight situation, This man has his back, Same goes for his partner in crime. It was all reassuring.

Then there is Talia Iwamoto, Xander sympathized with her because of them both losing someone important to a beast trying to get some kicks, Though it was a relief for Xander that she at least knows where everyone stands, Humans on the top, Unlike someone, Cough Cough, Erik Cough. However, Xander has never seen her in any kind of combat whatsoever, She has to know how to bear arms if she is here, Right? but that aside, Xander's view on Talia was more on a acquaintance level, Not distant, but not necessarily close either, Lukewarm, was the best way to describe it.

Xander also examined the house itself, A japanese style house, More rural then anything, He himself wasn't with he times, But this was a little much. Anything japanese proved little importance in Xander's perspective, The food was good, But that's all he had to say about it.

It's was about time Xander expressed his dominance, Now or never as they say. Xander took a step forward

"Hello Otherworlders, You have the privilege of calling me, Master Xander, King Xander and So forth" His voice was deafening, Like if he wanted to build tensions, Oh wait...

They were contrite, all meekly following behind the white haired man called Erik, the only act of bravery on the human's side announcing their names. Then another came, he had the sort of boyish swagger about him that reminded Athena of her brother. His face quirked up in a half smirk and he introduced himself as Xander. Another stab, a name so close to her now dead twin. Dead before twenty because humans decided he shouldn't live. Because according to them his life was worth less than nothing. An ant has no quarrel with a boot, was their reasoning, but that didn't mean they could not crush it.

She attempted to stifle her laughter, he was so odd, this human, announcing himself in such a manner and suggesting they refer to him with a title. You must think very highly of yourself if you expect us to call you that, Athena thought, watching the others and wondering what their reaction to this strange human would be. She would not vocalize her thoughts as surely that would lead to trouble they didn't want nor need. The other humans, as far as her observations went, did not seem so bad. Erik, Dietrich's brother presented himself as a tender morsel that was clearly only here for one reason, to attempt to make peace with his brother. The two Russian's Athena could not get a read on as they were stoic, although her keen senses picked up the scent of cigarettes and it took most of her will power not to wrinkle her nose in disgust.

Cigars and nicotine were things that the Banshee did not understand. Death sticks, is what they were and yet humans insisted on consuming them like bees did pollen. Natasha and Nikoli, were they siblings? Athena wondered, but rather than asking she gave a light shake of her head. Her thoughts were everywhere today and although the sun was just setting Athena could tell this was going to be a long night. She was not looking forward to sharing with humans, the species that had torn apart her life and stomped on whatever stable ground remained. She wanted to retreat to her room and fall apart in silence, but stood strong if not in defiance to the species -who ruined her life than to convince herself that she was alright.

Stop feeling so sorry for yourself. There are others who had it worse, Athena reminded herself and turned to go inside as the others did. They were going to eat the meal Dietrich prepared and although the vampire could not consume human food, Athena had no doubts that he would sit at the head of the table as always and converse politely with the humans. After all, Dietrich was once human himself, he could relate to them better than any of the others in the House of Wind.

Then there was Talia. Something about the slight female irked her although Athena couldn't quite put her finger on it. The only one who seemed excited by the opposite species presence was Haru, although no doubt it was nothing more than a morbid fascination at their mortality that piqued Haru's interest. Aika's gentle presence was a pleasant reminder that everything would be alright and Yoi... Well Athena wasn't sure about him, but then again she never was.

It was mostly peaceful that is what Aika would like to believe. The humans were understandable in their noted and subtle apprehension towards them. This also applies to their group, but it was a good start that everyone was able to politely stand together without fires being switched. She was very thankful for that especially when she doesn't like conflict in any form or from anyone.

They finally entered the manor where they led their human companions to the dining hall where their food had been served. It would be obvious that the Leader of the House of Winds would be sitting at the head. She could smell the wonderful meals prepared by Deitrich. "Please take your seat and enjoy the meal prepared by our leader." Her smile was warm as she waited for the others to take their seat, but she had already made sure that the second seat was for her.

The only thing she didn't expect was the introduction of the human with a rather dark complexion and white hair. "It is nice to meet you." Aika started as she noticed to the side in which Athena's eyes seemed to take humor in what had been said. Well, the human male had quite a grand assessment of himself or he believes that them the otherworlders are smaller compared to him. She does not find fault at that if that is what he rightly believes than it is so.

"If there is anything else, please just ask." Aika smiled at him kindly, but she avoided calling him by name as she was uncertain whether he was simply joking or serious. She could not tell and did not want to offend anyone especially on how he had stated it. His loud, booming voice filled with a confidence like none other. She was rather in awe of it as he is able to exude such thing. It was rather easier for people to be shy and to cower than to be brave and courageous.

"Then..." She looked around for the others and the humans. Aika wasn't taking the duties of their leader by commanding the table for most part. It was just she wanted everyone to be comfortable and to help her fellow otherworlders as much as possible. That was the least she could do for now. "Please eat to your hearts content." She smiled warmly at them, hoping to be courteous and friendly to enhance a better relationship for all of them.

It didn't take much effort to realize that the male Russian had his eyes one him. He mentally gave a dry laugh at the idea. He'd be perfectly okay with the other killing him, but he may not exactly know the trick. He'd have to remember to tell the humans at some point, though as far as he could tell in that moment, he was going to be fine.
The female Russian's reactions weren't all that different than her buddy, though she was a bit more... Obvious one could say. The look of surprise at Erik's words said it all.
The medic by far looked like one of the calmest and eager of this group, aside from Erik of course. She didn't seem scared, which worried him. When dealing with non humans, it's natural to be a bit frightened. He grew to wonder what her story was if she could remain calmer than her two Russian companions.
Master Xander. King Xander. Oh the balls this guy had. Dietrich couldn't help but give an unconscious smirk at him. He couldn't really take the man serious, finding him amusing in a non mocking way.
Aika taking charge of the situation didn't bother him, in fact he was proud of the girl. She was remaining calm and kind. He was a bit proud of them all, seeing that on their end, things went smoothly. He couldn't help but breath a sigh of relief as he and Erik where the last ones to enter the dining hall. The humans were all very interesting in their own way, if not a bit worrying in some case.
"Sorry if the food sucks." He casually spoke, unbefitting of a leader. He was never one to take charge in social gatherings as he was more of a solitary guy in the end. He took his seat at the end of the table while his brother took to the other side.

Image
He Erik found himself wondering what each of these creatures of the night were, knowing only what his brother was having been there when it happened.
One of the first to introduce them self on the other worlder's side was a very gentle blonde whom claimed to be a healer of sorts. She was very kind in her reply to his statement and he returned her bow. He wondered if she had a scary side to her.
The next was a young boy whom looked to be Dietrich's deceased age, a quiet and some what awkward boy who threw out a rather nonchalant air about him. He seemed calm and rational, traits that Erik likes in a fighter.
The next person was slightly unsettling. She did not look at the humans as equals, he could tell that much. The mention of science gave him thought as to what she thought of humans, test subjects. He put a hand to his chin, noting that he may want to keep and eye on her.
The last one was a fairly young girl, the first one who introduced herself in fact. He has heard of this one, as Dietrich seems fond of her as he was of their own sister. She was a banshee, a being cursed to see death. He too had a soft spot for the small girl, though was not all that familiar with her.
He followed behind his younger brother at the back of the crowd, taking his seat at the other end of the table.
"Mien Gott, Dietrich." He mused, smiling a bit. "It smells great, don't be so strict on yourself, ja?" He spoke as if he wasn't strict to others himself. He was a fairly relaxed guy but had very strict standards as those who work for him can attest to.

Haruka swirled at the sight of Talia's smile, already seeing the woman as a perfect candidate for testing. Such beauty, such curves! Perfect complexion, lovely hair, good stature, everything I could ever ask for! Oh, if only she was mine... Haru ignored Dietrich's voice, which was echoing in her head, reminding her: They are not here to be tested on... She honestly hated him right now. How could he deny her the right of learning more about these beautiful human beings? It was cruel, to say the least.

She was more or less concentrated on Talia when the albino guy spoke up, and she barely caught what he said at all. Master Xander? Unlike the others, who were practically ignoring the statement, Haruka laughed, loud and full. Ah, how odd for you to think that any of us would actually refer to you with such a name! Do you really believe yourself to be superior just because you were on this planet first? You've got some nerve, saying something like that. Haruka recovered from her laughing and stood up straight, crossing her arms across her chest and giving 'Master Xander' a glaring smile.

Don't forget who the ones born from darkness are, young man.

With that, she turned and walked into the house, taking her usual seat. At this point, she didn't really care what the humans thought of her, even though she'd originally been worried about their opinion. It didn't matter in the end. If they didn't trust her enough to volunteer for her experiments, there was always bribery, blackmail, and outright threats.

As the others flooded into the room, Haruka kept her smile and started to play with her hair quietly. She figured Dietrich would be giving her a lecture after the others were out of earshot. Not that she minded, what was he gonna do about it, turn back time? The worst he could do was restrict her food supply, and she doubted he had the authority to do something as drastic as that.

Haruka couldn't eat any of the food that had been prepared. Therefore, her seat didn't have any table settings, they weren't needed. She was supposed to eat at specific times on specific dates in a specific place, so most days she didn't even attend the community dinners. Haru found it to be a waste of time and effort, especially since most members of the house didn't really like her all that much. But today was special, and she was determined to make the best of it in spite of her first impression.

Yoi took his seat next to her and she chatted with him quietly, others around the table making their way in and starting to eat. Yoi was one of the few people Haru could stand to be around. Mostly because he was so quiet, partly because he was so understanding as well. He accepted who she was, unlike most of the other creatures in the House of Winds. Aika was also rather kind to her, so she was alright.

Haru didn't like Dietrich, that was evident, and Athena was at a completely neutral place in her set of opinions. As for the humans...well, the only one she didn't like was Xander. He was arrogant and obviously had some sort of God-complex, so unfortunately, he was not a very ideal subject.

The medic of the other group returned Aika's greeting as formally as she'd received it, introducing herself to be Talia Iwamoto. She seemed about as happy as Erik, and her smile didn't give the feel that it was fake, so Yoi determined her to be an alright person. The two Russians in the background both gave Yoi a sense of discomfort, they were intimidating, even to an Okami like him.

To his surprise, neither of them said anything or gave any emotion towards the subject. They both stayed quiet and kept to themselves. Instead, it was the white-haired male - the one who Yoi had noticed observing the other humans - who addressed himself.

"Hello Otherworlders, You have the privilege of calling me, Master Xander, King Xander and So forth."

Yoi had been looking forward to this day for a long while, and this man, Xander, made him want to go back to his room and never come out again. The ignorance in his voice was enough to make him puke if he actually had any food in his stomach. What the hell is his problem? Yoi made a face of slight disgust and hoped the guy noticed it. He didn't want to cause trouble, so he didn't say anything, but the thoughts raging through his head were not of the nice variety.

He jumped slightly when Himura burst out laughing next to him. He'd never heard her laugh before, it was creepy, and not just because it was new. Yoi continued to watch her captivate the attention of both groups as she blatantly insulted Xander, speaking her mind in a contradicting way that made her seem as if she felt superior to him, which would be the same as he felt towards the entire group.

Soon enough, Himura was finished with her little speech and disappeared inside. Yoi didn't speak and simply followed her. He didn't want to make the situation any worse, he could already feel the mood changing between the two groups. Yoi took his normal seat next to Himura, him being the only person she wasn't outwardly cruel to, and waited for everyone else to come in and sit down. It didn't take long. He wondered if anyone was going to say anything about it, perhaps Xander himself would retort. Yoi didn't really care. The guy was ignorant and wouldn't last long if he didn't change his attitude.

Dinner started. "I won't be eating anything, I'm supposed to have dinner with my family later. I'll stick around though." It was true that he commonly ate with his parents and sister, it but is wasn't complete truth, in reality he was just uncomfortable eating around these humans. Most of them seemed genuinely angry at Yoi's group and he didn't feel as if they would hesitate to poison his food or something like that. He doubted that they would under the circumstances, but his confidence wasn't full.

Yoi sat patiently as the others ate, making small talk with Himura as the night commenced. Neither of the two were eating that night so it was somewhat boring for them, but neither complained, and Yoi simply watched and observed the other people.

"Xander!" Talia began to reprimand his behavior before the woman who introduced herself as Dr. Himura stepped in. Tals admired her fierce nature at this point, she didn't fell as scared as she though she would after the woman's initial introduction. These beings were all just acting like normal humans. The doctor walked off and Aika called the group over to share a meal around a table.

Talia sat next to Erik, she didn't want to separate humans from non-humans, but she felt as if she knew Erik the most out of anyone here, which was strange because she didn't even know that much about him. The brothers had a polite interaction and Talia watched the two of them, noting their similarities.

"Thank you all for this, it looks wonderful," She smiled around the table. she took a small anount of food on her plate, finding herself not to be too entirely hungry, and sat quietly as the others conversed. she wasn't a normally conversational person, and preffered to listen, which is just what she did.

She supposed that after dinner they may have some sort of meeting, since everyone had to stay up to adjust to the new, night-time schedules. they would of course need to discuss living arrangements and the general ruled of the House, and what everyone would be doing to help out around the place. Talia also figured that someone would have to bring up the recent attacks of Other Worlders on humans. The attacks had been becoming more and more frequent, and Tals remembered her own attack very well, but she couldn't imagine that any of these people would have taken part in any of them. At least she hoped not.

It had been the idea of the League in the beginning to stop these attacks, and the military enlisted the help of those who lived in the House long before they even recruited any of the League itself. What an odd conglomeration of people this would be, they all had such different backgrounds and yet she hoped that they all shared a common goal. She just wanted people to be safe. They would have to do something about the attacks, she wondered what the plan was, either way, she would only fight if she had too, but she would be there to help.

Athena sat beside Aika, unconscious to the divide in humans and other worlder's. The display outside was entertaining, that was for sure. She would not call what Haru did brave, no, Athena saw it as taking an unnecessary risk. The scientist was odd though, that Athena knew for certain. She often heard noises from the room considered Haru's lab and would not want to end up as one of the unlucky souls under Haru's microscope. These poor humans had no idea what they were in for if they agreed to be one of Haru's subjects; not that she thought it likely. Unless Haru had something to offer in return for their blood and particles.

Athena's stomach growled. She had to stand on tip toe in order to reach the platter on the table, a disadvantage of being short, but one she was all too used to. The purple haired girl seated herself once more, nibbling on the food Dietrich had prepared and finding that it was nothing short of delicious, as normal. She had tried cooking once and not only had Athena made a mess of the kitchen, but she had nearly set her home on fire. Her mother had never allowed her to step foot in the kitchen after that, not even to serve food to guests, not that she would let her five year old carry glassware to the table anyways.

Athena listened to those around her speak. Erik had an accent that was much stronger than Dietrich's and he told his brother not to be so hard on himself. She felt a stab of envy and looked down at her plate, taking a breath before putting on the smile that she wore for show. "Everything is delicious Dietrich," Athena had eaten nearly everything on her plate, which was a stark difference from the last few weeks. She was surprised she was hungry, but was glad that she was beginning to feel a bit more normal. Maybe staying in the House of Wind really was helping?

"You're name's Talia right?" Athena turned to look at the black haired female and placed her fork down. "So where do you hail from?" Small talk was not her best subject, but Athena had decided to give it a shot.
