Will is a slim trimmed, almost effeminate looking man. He does have some muscle but it's very lean. For clothing attire he tends to dress outlandishly, wearing loose fabric with bright colors almost like he is trying extensively to to grab the viewers attention.

MENTALITY:

Skills: Will a decent chief, wandering down to the kitchen every once in a while to make some experimental dish or another that he'll then start begging who ever happens to pass by to try out. He's also talented with a sewing kit. All the frilly and showy outfits he wears are of his own making.

Power : The Fool is numbered 0, the origin point that is neither positive or negative and thus the number of unlimited potential, and does not actually have a specific place in the sequence of the Tarot cards. The Fool is shown with the sun rising up behind him, representing the beginning of his journey and the unbound possibilities for his future, and a cliff in front of him representing the potential unseen dangers awaiting him. What that means for William and how his powers work is a mystery, as he has yet to manifest his abilities.

Oddities: William is a very 'touchy-feely' sort of person and often has trouble understanding someones desire for 'personal space'.
Likes: Reading, drinking, partying, trying new things, hugs
Dislikes: Boredom, choirs, being bossed around.
Hobbies: Going for walks, pestering people, listening to music, cooking.
Phobia(s): complete sensory deprivation, enclosed tight spaces

Personality: William is a very flighty and 'in the moment' sort of person. Always in the pursuit of new experiences and sensations he prefers not to dwell on the past or worry about the future. This can have it's consequences, as a lack of forethought on his part has gotten him into trouble numerous times in the past. For how he act around others though, words to describe him would be whimsical, flirty, mischievous, fickle, and even childish.

Whenever Will starts off on his latest venture he often tries to bring someone else along. Seeking to amuse, and be amused by, William can play both the joker and the trickster throwing either himself or his companion into a bit of trouble just so that they can have something to laugh about later. Natuarally this means he ends up relying on somebody to get him back out of trouble. This behavior is enhanced by a idealistic, if naive, ideal that everything will work out in the end if you let it. His nativity, though, means that he sometimes is to trusting of others and might be easily tricked. Also, like a child he might try to run from a problem if it gets to much for him to handle, signifying why he often has to rely on his friends for help.

HISTORY:

Born the eldest son to a wealthy shipping family, William had always been a very spacey individual, even as a child. Little Willy had difficulty paying attention in school, and rarely seemed to listen when someone tried to instruct him on something. Instead he became something of a trouble maker, sneaking out, playing when he was supposed to be working, and pulling pranks on his parents, siblings, and servants. He never really grew out of this childish behavior even as he grew into a full adult, which came to his determent when his parent's decided to pass him for inheritance of the company. He was to reckless, they told him. Too fickle and irresponsible with his money and actions to be trusted with running a corporation, and so control was given to his younger siblings.

Though he felt a bit cheated and dejected at this decision, he would later find that he didn't walk away with nothing. On that same day he was informed that his long deceased uncle had left in his will to William the deed to a manor out in the country side. But, the deed came with odd conditions to its ownership.


William,

Upon you I bequeath the country side home known as Platinum Manor, and with it a specific set of duties I entrust with you as it's new owner. You will not be the only one inhabiting the mansion. Once you relocate to your new home others will begin to arrive shortly; individuals, like you, with unusual talents whom you will recognize once you meet them. They will be your new tenets, and to continue to hold this deed you are hereby required to allow them entance and shelter within the house walls. I understand if you have some confusion but believe me when I say that these people are of a similar character as your own and you will understand the importance of this task I have assigned you in time.


Though put off by the strange requirements placed upon him, his uncle had been called eccentric, William none the less accepted ownership of Platinum Manor and the apparent 'duties' that came with it. Sure enough though within the first month of moving into his new home Will quickly realized exactly what his uncle had meant when first of the Card Holders appeared on the door step demonstrating strange powers, both surprising William and fascinating him. Years have gone by now and Will has come to not just accept but enjoy the strangeness brought on by living at the manor. Eagerly he awaits each new Card Holder hopping to be the first to great them and see what strange talents they posses, while at the same time impatiently awaiting for his own powers to appear.





So begins...

Will was an erratic sleeper and as such was not a morning person. Whenever the day began William was probably the last one out of the house occupants to to rise from bed. In fact he would probably sleep till well into the afternoon if no one came to wake him, which was probably why he never locked his door in the evening. A shame really as Will liked being able to cook breakfast for everyone else, and usually ended up bemoaning it whenever someone had beaten him to the punch.

But going back to the matter of sleep, one could easily understand why when Apsel started knocking on the door the most emote William made was to grumble slightly and turn over on his side.

Aika blinked and said "Yes, I am in fact a dream. Shio created me when she was younger. That's her power... I know I shouldn't have given it away but knowing Shio, she would've told you anyway."
Shio was still nuzzling a cherry red Adira as she turned her eyes to Aika.
"Ai, you're no fun..."
Aika looked back at Shio.
"Well, someone has to be grounding you in reality and I don't trust anyone here so far. No offense..."
Aika raised up her hands in surrender upon saying that she meant no offense to anyone. Shio on the other hand grinned.
"Ai's right, I created her. You name it, I can create anything out of my mind... but there's a catch to my power-"
Aika glared at Shio. She didn't want her to talk about her heart problems so casually. Shio caught the glare and stopped.
". . . Maybe I'll tell you when I get to know you all better~"
Shio finally let go of Adira and then walked over to the center of the kitchen.
"In any case, I better introduce myself properly. My name is Shio Naona. You can call me Shi, Nao-Nao or anything you want though~ I don't bite too badly and hey, everyone needs a little Sunshine in their life~"
Shio laughed at her pun while Aika groaned.
"As I mentioned earlier, Shio is flighty. She tends to make bad puns like that and be spacy... be nice."
Aika sent a warning glare in everyone's direction. Though she liked the look of everyone, especially glasses boy, she didn't trust them because she didn't know them all that well. She then stood by Shio's side, waiting for Shio to bring her back into her mind.

(Elsewhere)

Apsel noticed that William was still trying to go to sleep. He could hear a loud noise coming from downstairs and sighed softly. 'It must be another new resident...' Apsel then shook William.
"Will? You have to wake up. There are new guests here and they require an official welcome from the manor's owner."

"Will? You have to wake up."

William however was not particularly eager to agree, and pulled the blankets over his head to try and drown out Apsel's voice. "There are new guests here and they require an official welcome from the manor's owner." Now if he had been up and about that would have had the eccentric owner of the house rushing down stairs to meet the new arrival, as Will sometime insisted on being the first to meet a 'new friend'. As it stood however 'sleeping Will' (as he commonly refereed to his semi-conscious self to different from his more energetic awake persona) was determined to stay right where he was for the time being.

"Five more minutes" he whined.

Suddenly there was another girl, or... Two? Liliana didn't know. Apperently one of them was like a dream, or a projection of the other girl's mind. What she did know, was that the new guy was very polite, and he looked rather confused, the new girl was very excited and she had a pounding headache. Someone should probably go and get William, she supposed.

“I have to go upstairs guys, my deadline is next week and I haven't even started yet," she stood from the table and smiled, then walked to the kitchen and placed her half eaten breakfast in the trash and put the plate in the dishwasher. “I'll get Will while I'm at it." She began the long trek back upstairs to her room and nearly passed William's door. It was open and she could hear Apsel trying to wake the fool up.

She leaned on the door frame and crossed her arms, just after taking her hair out of her bun. She didn't want to surprise Apsel too much so she knocked lightly on the open door.

“Throw some water in him," she smirked. “Show no mercy." She stepped into the room and took William's water bottle off of a table in his room and handed it to Apsel.

K E Y - E S D O R A // Justice


No, it was definitely not intentional for Key to fall asleep in the library. It was just... unfortunate, yeah, pretty much unfortunate. She longed to see Vito the last night, but she restrained herself, knowing well she had to learn for her studies, or she wouldn't make it this year. Repeating however wasn't an option. Key just wanted to hurry up and graduate, use it for getting a proper job in the criminal division then work as an investigator eventually, like she always wanted. That dream however, seemed still so far away. Studying was obviously not her piece of cake.

She rubbed her eyes, trying to uphold her head, clearing her vision -- Just to slump her head back on her arms upon the table and close her eyes, again. Her arms and legs were stiff, and she couldn't feel anything with her butt for that had to endure the hard chair through the night. She just couldn't find any motivation to stand up, but eventually she did, listlessly, walking out of the library right into her room, slumping down on her comfortable bed. She stared into the direction of her table and rested her eyes on the little picture wherein she and Vito are seen together. Not of the best quality, but enough to make Key's spirit awaken and motivated enough to go to the kitchen downstairs, urging to eventually pass by Vito.

While she stepped down the stairs which seemed to be countless therefore she started to get hungry, she heard the noises coming from the kitchen and couldn't seem to recognize three of whose voices she heard. It's weird, although Key knew nothing along the lines of music and tones; she can still recognize the differences between one another, despite that to be a quite corrupted way to interpret it. Anyhow, Key entered the kitchen with alert and saw two individuals she never seen before... in addition to the one strangely popping out of the other. How interesting, she merely thought and smiled politely to the both of them.

"Good morning everyone. New residents, I suppose? Greetings to both of you, my name's Key." She introduced herself calm like always, attempted to offer them her hand and further observe them as then she noticed Vito over there ... shirtless. "Waah- VITO! A- aren't yo- you cold?" For every other person, other men, she would have a rather distant and cold attitude even uncaring most definitely, but seeing Vito without shirt... how nice and se-- "C-come! I-it isn't good for you to w-walk around l-like that... even worse when greeting others!" She said flustered, grabbing his hand and rushed out the kitchen. Her complexion shifted into a deep red, she dragged him away from every others view as she then confronted him wanting to scold--- but then kept staring and staring... Wonderful... it's really bothering me why I am irritated that he lets everyone else see him like this. Am I a pervert?, she asked herself, feeling slightly awkward to say anything. "Y- you work out?" She eventually said, trying to concentrate looking at his face.


J U D E - M A Y S T R O // The Magician


With every step he made, the newspaper beneath his feet will announce its attendance, slightly annoying Jude while concentrating. Concentrating for what, you ask? In front of him, there's a big canvas. Still white. Untouched. Jude wanted to do something extravagant, something spectacular, something no one ever did before. For that very purpose, he stayed awake all through the night, staring at that white thing in front of him, not coming to any useful - or at least, meaningful - idea. He lacked of inspiration, he conclude, after going in circles dozens of time on the newspaper floor in his room, thinking and thinking. Well, where do artisans like him find inspirations anyway? Of course, there are women. Everywhere in this manor there are women. Problem is, they're not going around naked, and nudity is the very art he sought.... This was a problem, obviously. Not only for him, but also for those he asked. Well yeah, he asked them, isn't that common sense? Not like he is a perv-- let's leave it with the last sentence.

Sighing, he tied up his hair to a ponytail, slumped listlessly on his bed whereupon he did not put the newspaper. It wasn't required as it was far away from the canvas and additionally already stained with several of colour spots. It didn't really matter if the paint would hit the bed sheets, at least, for Jude. For awhile, he had still observed the white fabric up front with a frown, he also played with the thought of going back to sleep. No one's going to hinder him, at least, no person. It was his stomach who raised objection and therefore, after airing the room by opening both of his windows to get rid of the strong smell of paint, he walked out of his room, accompanied by the crackling sound of the newspapers below.

Honestly, one could never guess how proud Jude was, to be able to get the room in the corner with the two windows! Then additionally its strategic location made it easy to reach the kitchen in no time, very significant point. There are times, Jude liked this place, but he can't blame himself for sometimes disliking it. The Platinum Manor made him realise, everyday, that he had to conceal. Conceal, so nothing bad leaked out, scaring those who are afraid of his powers and make those who're curious hunt them down. Probably a rather dark thought to have, but he couldn't help to think of such matters with that artisan mind of his, wanting to understand every point of view while still claiming individuality. Yes, that's probably a good idea for his next work-- Wanting to continue his thought; he heard the noise coming from downstairs. Not like that was anything new, but somehow it was louder than usual, getting Jude slightly interested. After making a nice sandwich for himself in the small kitchen and bit in with relish, he took it along with him, planning to go downstairs, wanting to satisfy his curiosity.

However, he just had to peek inside the room of William (it was open, so there's nothing he can be accused of) and saw Apsel vainly tried to get the manor's owner to wake up, for whatsoever occasion. Or probably for private stuff? Jude noticed Apsel's overly admiration towards the owner, but he wouldn't call it gross or anything, rather, it interested him quite a bit. As anything goes though, he'd like to have some information to what happens below so he interrupted the scene (which he thought was still kind of allowed to interrupt in). And there's Lili anyways, so I guess he couldn't do anything wrong. "Morning Will, Apsel, Lil, can you let me in on what happens downstairs? It's really loud for a Thursday morning." Then he peeked into William's direction, biting into his sandwich and concluded those five minutes might mean lots more than that. "Will, youw lawzy thingw, doun't leawe Apwsel hangwingw!", he said part joking part serious while chewing, watching with amusement how Liliana handed over the water, curious, at what Apsel will do.

"Argh" Came a groan from under the sheets and the pillow short disappeared under the blanket, now being used to smother Will's ears and drown out the noise. "You guys are too noisy!" Will was definitely closer to 'awake' by this point, but still being stubborn for stubbornness sake. The invasion of privacy was irksome but routine at this point. And because of that 'Sleeping Will' had gotten used to having to put up more of a fight when it came to large masses of people barging into his room in the mourning to try and drag him out of bed. "Go away!" He growled irritably, clutching the blanket tighter for when they inevitably try to pull it off him.

Apsel heard a light knocking on the door. He turned and there stood Liliana. "Good morning to you." Apsel spoke politely to her. He always treated each resident with the utmost respect even if some of them didn't deserve it. He was often a source where people would go to for help. He then heard newspapers crinkling and without even turning around, he said "Good morning, Jude. I trust the next painting is going well?" Jude yawned and said "Morning Will, Apsel, Lil. Can you let me in on what happens downstairs? It's really loud for a Thursday morning." Apsel laughed to himself. "That would be because we have new guests. And by the sound of it, on of them gets excited easily." He saw Jude peek in to see the situation for himself. Jude, biting his sandwich, muttered "Will, youw lawzy thingw, doun't leawe Apwsel hangwingw." Apsel could feel his face grow warm. "J-Jude! It's nothing like that!" It usually doesn't work when you try to get Apsel flustered but mentioning his crush on Will is one thing that works guaranteed. Liliana smirked and said "Throw some water in him. Show no mercy." Before Apsel could object, Will spoke from underneath his covers "Argh! You guys are too noisy! Go away!" Now Apsel knew Will was just being stubborn. Well, two can play at that. He felt a rather mischevious smile creep up as he said "Jude, open up the curtains. It's much too dark in here. Liliana, be a dear and remove the blankets so I have a clear shot. I believed you said I should show no mercy, correct~?" As he waited for the two to complete their tasks, he took the water bottle, drinking a bit of the contents due to thirst.

Shio watched as Key and Vitali walked out of the kitchen. She grinned and said "So how long have the happy couple been together?" Aika sighed.
"Shio, you don't know if they even are a couple." That had stopped Shio a bit before saying
"Well, if they aren't, I will root for them to be a couple until my dying days!" Aika turned a little pale when Shio mentioned death but otherwise kept a straight face.

There are quite a few people here now... Adira glanced around the numerous faces in the room, there were too many of them in one place. She introduced herself to the two new strangers, Adira supposed that she would try and get to know them at some point, but for now she wanted to leave the kitchen. She didn't quite know what to say as everyone else talked around her, what was there to say to everyone? She was still trying to adjust to the two new members being present yet alone all this action going on in one place.

Have breakfast later, when it quietens down. It seemed like a good plan and she would be able to prepare something she wanted. Adira thought for a brief moment, she supposed that she could go into the library for a short while before waiting for everyone to disperse, that way she could properly introduce herself to the others on her own accord. She smiled to herself, good idea. Although part of her wanted to get the introductions over and done with already, she was curious to know more about the powers of the new arrivals, it made her feel good when she thought about the fact that there were people like her. However, she got slightly uncomfortable when the new girl began nuzzling her cheek? Adira went bright red and felt really awkward all of a sudden, as soon as she stopped Adira was more than ready to get out of the room for a moment.

Leaving the room, Adira started towards the staircase, climbing the stairs quickly before hurrying towards the library. She often resorted to visiting the library when she wanted peace and quiet, or as an alternative to her room. Staying her room all day was something she did quite often, a change of scenery was much appreciated. However, there were days when Adira would go out into the garden and spend her day lying on the grass and staring at the sky. Adira sat down in the library, she considered reading something but it would take her too long to find anything worth reading, she was far too picky about books. Well, at least it is pretty quiet up here. Adira reassured herself. She planned to go back downstairs after half an hour or so, that way she could get something to eat and probably go outside for a little bit.

Since there were two new arrivals, Adira wondered if there would be any more. I thought there were enough people in this house as it is.

When Valeria woke up the Sun was already shining through her beige curtains. It was her third week here at Platinum manor and she still wasn't used to this place. The huge Victorian mansion was quite different from the last place she stayed.
After putting on a white blouse and pair flower pattern shorts she ventured through the house, her goal of course being the library. To get to the library she had to get past William's room which seemed to be a focal point of the second floor. Both Apsel and Liliana were trying to wake up William. It seemed most of their efforts went to vain and they had to resort to pouring water onto him. She didn't want to anywhere near room 231. A while ago Vitali and her had put ice cubes down his shirt in order to wake him and even though he always says prefers not to dwell on the past she could feel he still resented her just a tiny bit.
Grabbing a book from the library she went downstairs to get some breakfast. When she entered the kitchen three unknown faces were staring at her. "I'm Valeria." She greeted with a shot wave and continued to grab a bowl and a pack of cereal. As she poured it into her bowl she answered Mattrim's question, "Are there a lot of people with powers like yours?" even though it wasn't directed at her. "Liliana, the black haired girl, can control lighting and pretty much everyone has something." She said and had a spoon of her milk-free cereal. "Well except for William who should come greet you as soon as he's awake, and dry."

"Morning Will, Apsel, Lil. Can you let me in on what happens downstairs? It's really loud for a Thursday morning."

Apsel laughed to himself. "That would be because we have new guests. And by the sound of it, on of them gets excited easily."


"Ugh, I know, I'm tired of being so friendly, I was going to just come upstairs and do some work, but they said that they needed Will, so, here we are," Liliana said as she rolled her eyes. she cracked her knuckles and watched as William seemed to be trying to deny his will to get out of bed.

"Jude, open up the curtains. It's much too dark in here. Liliana, be a dear and remove the blankets so I have a clear shot. I believed you said I should show no mercy, correct~?" Apsel said after Jude entered to bother the sleepy William with them. She supposed that the fool really would be of help downstairs, since she didn't feel like explaining anything. Being friendly made her tired, and there was work to finish, though she had exaggerated its amount a bit.

She saluted sarcastically. "Yessir," with a hop she reached the side of William's bed and she threw off his blankets in a flourish. She then stepped back a bit so that Apsel wouldn't hit her with the water, that he was now taking a sip of.

Apsel made sure both Jude and Liliana were far enough away so that he could properly get William up. Apsel then poured the near freezing contents all over William, soaking him from head to toe. When Will rose up and glared at Apsel, he merely shrugged and said
"You need to be awake for the guests. Come on, I'll help you get changed."
Apsel then turned over to Liliana and Jude.
"You can go ahead and get going on your work now, Liliana. If you need my assistance, contact me. Same with you, Jude."
As the two left, Apsel looked over at Will.
"Now, do I have to watch to make sure you'll get changed or are you completely awake?"

Shio stared at Valeria.
"That... is... AWESOME!!!!"
And with that squeal of delight, Shio proceeds to glomp Valeria. Aika sighed and turned to Matt.
"Yes, she's like this with everyone she meets, not just you. Heh, I remember when I was created the first thing she did was hug me."
Aika let out a melodious laugh at the memory. Meanwhile, Shio was showering Valeria with all of her attention.
"So, what's your powers?! Tell me, tell me, tell me~"
Shio's behavior was not unlike a child who was being told an important secret by her best friend. She then turned over and noticed a lacy handkerchief on the floor. She picked it up and nodded to herself.
"Yup! This is my second memory here at Platinum Manor."
She then stuffed the handkerchief in the same pocket holding the dirty pink ribbon. Aika sighed.
"I hate to rely on you, Mattrim, but did Shio pick up another thing from the floor?"
Upon getting confirmation, Aika sighed softly to herself.
"I knew it. That's one of Shio's many quirks. She'll tend to see random items, pick them up and call them her memories. I'm not entirely sure what brought it up in all honesty."
Aika turned to try and find Mattrim again. She really did wish she had eyesight at times so she could see Matt's face...
I bet it looks nice... What is wrong with me?! Aika tried to shake off her blush and continued to try and find Matt.

When he felt Liliana grab hold of the bed sheets William clenched them tighter. But inevitability was something that was all to common in this routine and Will found himself dragged off the mattress when Liliana showed surprising strength for a girl her size. Will barley had time to mutter an "oof" when he made contact with the floor before the splash of lukewarm water was emptied upon him. Sputtering and coughing, he flailed his way back into a sitting position and fixed his irked gaze upon the room's invaders with a pouting expression.

"Okay, that was just mean." He gripped. Yes Will tended too sleep in, but the lengths some of the other tenets would go to inorder to wake him could get down right ridiculous at times. "Now, do I have to watch to make sure you'll get changed or are you completely awake?" Will just threw the toppled pillow at Apsel's head for that. "Oh just get out!"

"Oh just get out!"
With those words, William threw a pillow at Apsel's head. Apsel merely laughed and dodged the attack.
"Very well. Meet me in the kitchen when you are done."
Apsel then made his way into the kitchen. Lucas and Valeria were already standing there. Apsel smiled and greeted the two.
"Hello, Lucas. I trust you slept well. And a good morning to you as well, Valeria. I hope your cousin didn't cause any trouble."
Apsel then noticed three new faces. One of them was an orange haired girl who held a strange and rotten apple. There was another girl with white hair holding onto the final person's arm. He had glasses and an odd collar around his neck. Apsel gently smiled at the three.
"Don't worry. I'm not going to harm you. My best friend is on his way to give a proper welcome. But for now, I'll introduce myself. My name is Apsel Lehrer. It's nice to meet you."
Shio felt a smile grow on her face and hugged Apsel tightly.
"Hiya Apsel! I'm Shio Naona!!"
Aika merely tried to focus on the man.
"I'm Shio's dream, Aika."
Apsel was briefly confused, but he decided to save his questions for later. They needed to get used to the manor first.

K E Y - E S D O R A // Justice


Key had a very, very hard time to not peer at his body. And she just couldn't rest her eyes on his face... wherein the familiar naughty expression lay. Something not very good for her heart when looking at it for a long time, no, really not. That's why she glanced all over the place and therefore needed time to realise how close Vito's face suddenly was, his breath tickling her ears and made her pale face completely turn into a tomato. She was so flustered that he failed to realise the faint scent of cigarettes still lingering within Vito's breath... fortunately.

"Are you jealous of me flaunting myself in front of everybody?"


Her eyes wide open, staring into his orbs as if obsessed... she quickly averted her glance to the ground, embarrassed. Key was an honest person, she couldn't lie by saying against it... it's the truth after all. I am jealous..., she pouted in her thought still having a blush on her cheeks. "As a matter of fact I do.", he then answered to her question. Key watched him putting on his white shirt with a bit of relief. Slowly, her mind cleared up, and her complexion recovered, but not completely. Why is he so cunning? Button it up... please!, she said still slightly flustered.

"Running away from mobsters is my favourite activity."

"M-MOBSTERS?! GANSTERS? Where?" She shouted with disbelief, for a part afraid of Vito and another determined to get them into prison. With no hesitation she approached him on the spur of the moment, grabbed his hand and squeezed it tightly. "I am always here for you, you can call me anytime you want! I will help you. Definitely." She uttered seriously. I don't want you to be hurt. But then she put a little distance again, smiling awkwardly when she realised that she had again, touched his hand without thinking. "I-I'll do anything." She said, averting her eyes elsewhere, oblivious that 'anything' is a rather unspecific (and dangerous) way to tell her preparedness to help. In that way, it is rather suitable to call her innocent.

"Besides I'm getting a new tattoo on my chest next week and I won't be able to wear any clothes over it so I'll be shirtless weather you want me to be ot not."

I am not against you to be shirtless, was Key's first thought, but she quickly dismissed it. She was troubled with how others will stare at him, eager to get near him, closer and closer... how unpleasant. Key frowned and bit her lip when she again, glanced to Vito and approached him, now beginning to button his shirt. "Why... why do you want to have another tattoo?" She asked, obviously placed her concern on the other matter than the tattoo.

J U D E - M A Y S T R O // The Magician


Honestly, Jude rather liked this moody Will more than the fool Will. Probably because the fool would think of nothing when interfering with his personal stuff, even not really getting that he interrupted. Perhaps it's fortunate to have such an easygoing person as the owner, not some strict madame with glasses who orders people around but to be frank: Jude enjoyed the situation, with a rather creepy delight.

"That would be because we have new guests. And by the sound of it, on of them gets excited easily." Bingo. Jude guessed right. "Ugh, I know, I'm tired of being so friendly, I was going to just come upstairs and do some work, but they said that they needed Will, so, here we are," Jude laughed. "Well, they can have him. In such a lousy mood, he'd only be useful playing dead.", he commented taking another bite on his sandwich which seemed to decrease rather fast. He needed to make another one, because his hunger is still far from being appeased.

"Jude, open up the curtains. It's much too dark in here. Liliana, be a dear and remove the blankets so I have a clear shot. I believed you said I should show no mercy, correct~?"

"That'd bew mwy pleawsure," He said while chewing and did, what he was told to.

"You can go ahead and get going on your work now, Liliana. If you need my assistance, contact me. Same with you, Jude." Jude assumed that it was privacy time and so slightly smirked. "No need to get rid of me, take it easy." He commented with a rather naughty tone as he turned to leave. "Oh and Apsel, about your offer... can you model for me? Naked?" ... He left his question lingering in the air unanswered for good.

Outside, he turned to Liliana. "Lil, want me to make you some sandwich? You gotta work right? I wanna make my second after this anyway, or do you prefer pancakes? Unlike you, I won't let it end up in a disaster." Jude said while laughing freely without any bad intention. Liliana was probably already infamous for her terrific cooking skills, wherein Jude was known to be a rather decent cook. Sometimes he made some dishes for the entire manor, more often though for himself. Depends on his motivation... which lacked lately the past months.

Liliana chuckled as William's annoyance with the three other tenets showed. He threw the three of them out of his room. After William had finally felt the urge to get up, Liliana felt that her job there was finished. She began walking out of his door to go to her room when Jude called after her. She turned to face him.

"Lil, want me to make you some sandwich? You gotta work right? I wanna make my second after this anyway, or do you prefer pancakes? Unlike you, I won't let it end up in a disaster." Jude said while laughing freely without any bad intention.

She chuckled along with him. "What are you saying that I can't cook?" She smiled. "I'd love a sandwich, if that's alright with you, I couldn't stand being so friendly down there with a bunch of newbies." She began to walk downstairs and waited for Jude to follow after her. She could still hear the sounds of craziness downstairs and wondered what was happening. "It's weird knowing that they just could show up here, ya know?"

As she asked this question, the lights in the corridor flickered and turned off. She sighed and looked over at the wall to where a sconce had gone dark. "Looks like the power is out again, I think its the squirrels, will you come with me to start it back up, the circuit board is near the kitchen anyways." She began to feel her way down the stairs and shouted down to let everyone know what had happened. "Power's out, I'll fix it!"

The cheerful looking girl whose name appeared to be Shio pounced on her and squealed as soon as she mentioned Liliana's lightning."That... is... AWESOME!!!!" She glanced towards glasses boy and whoever or whatever the other figure was. Usually she would know a persons name by just looking at them but this person's aura was a bit different. Well she seemed nice enough when when she explained Shio's actions. "Yes, she's like this with everyone she meets, not just you. Heh, I remember when I was created the first thing she did was hug me." Wait a minute did she just say she was created? She now looked at all the people in the room with a perplexed expression but she decided not to question anything. She never got to answer Shio's question about her power since the girl's attention was whisked away by a handkerchief? If that was Vito's and it should be since he's the only one that carries handkerchiefs she wouldn't touch it, god knows where that has been.
Opening the book she brought with her she focused on reading. She smelt cigars she absent mindedly waved in the direction of Lucas and continued reading. "So... are these new residents, or have we been degraded to hosting a breakfast club?" The question made her smile a bit but she shook her head and squinted at Lucas to hint him to at least pretend to be polite. "A breakfast club would have more food." She pointed at at table which was empty, except for her cereal.
Shio's display of her power left Valeria a bit stunned, to create something out of nothing seemed like such a good power, it's just a shame it didn't work properly. Well even it you couldn't create exactly what you imagined it was far better that getting random visions of peoples futures, and not even the interesting parts of their future.
Apsel's appearance meant that the mission to wake William up was a success. Although waking the manor's owner didn't mean he'll be down soon since he still needed to dress himself and sometimes that could take a very long tome.
Valeria's vision blurred for a moment and she saw the lights flicker, her foresight always showed her the most unnecessary things. The power itself had potential but it seemed that power shortages were more important that lottery numbers. Well it looks like we'll have another power shortage in about 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. now. The lights went out and a distant "Power's out, I'll fix it!" could be heard.
Valeria wasn't afraid of the dark but she preferred the sunlight much more. And this grand mansion barely had any windows on the ground floor so some rooms seemed shadowy and dark even during the day. "Wouldn't it be nice if our newcomer Sun had the power of glowing in the dark? We could certainly use it with the bad wiring of this place." She crossed her arms and looked around the dim room, there were no conditions for reading and she felt rather uncomfortable around groups of more than four people. "If you will exuce me I'll go check if our charming host managed to dress himself or did the power shortage make him believe it's night and go to sleep again."

"If you will exuce me I'll go check if our charming host managed to dress himself or did the power shortage make him believe it's night and go to sleep again."
When Valeria said that, Apsel felt a weird pain go through him. It wasn't anything that badly hurt him, it just... felt strange. He shook off the strange feeling and smiled at Valeria.
"I would feel safer if you did that. My attempts to wake Will had resulted in a near execution via pillow. I'd be careful if he's still cranky."
With those words, a loud bump was heard.
"Ah, Achak must have returned with dinner."
Shio looked at Apsel confused.
"Achak? Ooh! I'll go help him!! But first... Let there be Sunlight!"
And with those words, Shio created... torches. Shio felt herself sigh.
"I wanted candles but these work too. Where is this Achak located?"
Apsel wondered a bit.
"Well... knowing him, he's probably near the entrance. But don't move. Will wants to greet you and besides, you don't know the manor that well. I'll get him."
And with that, Apsel walked over to the front of the manor, leaving Shio alone with Lucas and Mattrim. Shio shivered a bit in the darkness.
"This is almost like the time the hospital's lights went out. At least I can stand instead of being in a bed most of my life..."
This was said aloud. It may have made no sense to anyone but the thought comforted young Shio.

Apsel eventually found the front of the manor. He frowned a bit.
"It really is impossible to see in the darkness."
But the darkness proved to be helpful. Apsel felt the calmest when he was in darkness. With nothing to see, everything is perfectly balanced and he could feel human. He then heard drips and followed the sound to greet a Native American man.
"Ah, hello, Achak! Was the hunt successful?"

Willialm was starting to believe that today was going to be one of those days. After drying himself off from the wake up call, he had entered his closet to pick out the days attire. His Room was much different from everyone else's in that it was filled with a variety of bright and contrasting colors, looking like a big collage had been made out of it. Will was a bit of a whimsical person and his fashion sense reflected that from his room to his attire. In the process of choosing his wardrobe, however, another disaster struck.

The power went out. Again.

Will could only sigh in a tired fashion as he stood there half naked in the dark. So many things wrong with this creaky old place, he was really going to have to put some actual thought into renovating it... once he figured out how he was going to get the funds for it.

Making her was through the dim house Valeria tried to adjust her eyes to the dark. Needless to say it didn't work quite as she imagined it and a moment later she walked right into a coffee table and nearly fell. She continued towards the staircase. As she was passing by the front door loud steps, it was hard to see anything in the dark but she saw contours of a rather large person. No, no there's nothing there, just my eyes playing a trick on me. She convinced herself but still ran upstairs as fast as she could.
"Will?" She called out to the darkness in front of her. Thankfully Valeria managed to reach his room without bumping into or knocking down anything. A moment or so after she entered the room the lights flickered back and Valeria was met with a half dressed William. A small blush crept onto her cheeks and she lowered her head. "Um.. I don't mean to rush you..." Kept her gaze low not meeting William's face, or any other part. "... but you are really needed downstairs. I remember when I arrived you were the first to greet me and explain everything but I think one of the newcomers doesn't even know he's a holder so they could use some explaining."

William had been forced to wait it out until the lights came back on. "Will?" came another voice outside the room, and half a second later he heard the door open again.'Can't anyone bother to knock anymore? He grumbled to himself. He turned towards where he heard the voice from, trying to make out who it was when the lights came back on. The flash blinded Will for a few seconds and he had to rub the blurriness out of his still tired eyes.

"Um.. I don't mean to rush you..." She said as Will's vision started to return. "... but you are really needed downstairs. I remember when I arrived you were the first to greet me and explain everything but I think one of the newcomers doesn't even know he's a holder so they could use some explaining."

"New arrivals?" Will asked. Then his eye's lit up and his earlier annoyances were forgotten. "Oh that's wonderful news!" And without thinking he rushed over and gave her a hug in his excitement. "Quick, tell me" he started as he released her, "Who are they, how many are there, what are they're names, what do they look like!?" Then he paused, and recollected himself. "Oh, it's still morning. They're probably hungry from their trip. I suppose I should try to help fix breakfast and explain everything over a morning meal." Then he looked down at himself again. "But maybe not before I get some proper clothes on."

"New arrivals?" William's voice sounded excited and a bit surprised. Have Liliana and Apsel not explained why it was so important for the manor's owner to be up. "Who are they, how many are there, what are they're names, what do they look like!?" Valeria could barely keep up with Will's questions especially with Will hugging her very tightly."I'm not sur... two... Shio and Mat... short..." It was impossible to answer the inquires so fast. "Just go downstairs and see for yourself." She sighed, how can someone go from the laziest to the most hyperactive person on Earth in a matter of minutes. "Oh, it's still morning. They're probably hungry from their trip. I suppose I should try to help fix breakfast and explain everything over a morning meal." Valeria eyed the man and awkwardly pointed at his still half naked form. "But maybe not before I get some proper clothes on." She just nodded at Will and suddenly feeling like an intruder decided to slowly exit the room leaving William to dress himself in peace.
This was all a bit much Valeria, she didn't like being around new people. There were always little fragments of their lives floating around her head and giving her visions and they were rarely pretty. Approaching the stairs she swore she could smell blood? No, not again. She hurried downstairs, yes once again there was a trail of thick dark blood leading from the main entrance to the kitchen. It wasn't the first time Achak brought a carcase to the house but it was disturbing nevertheless. What if the new residents see him? Oh lord, they'll think we're all a bunch of lunatics.
