Inside the Mind


Image

Personality:
Kenneth is an interesting young man. He is always trying to stay happy, or cheer up those around him. He is rather innocent to the world, not exploring much of it can do that to you. He doesn't have a lot of faith in himself in combat, but he never gives up. He never wants to let his guild members to get injured, making him a rather caring individual. Even so, his lack of confidence means he relies more on his allies in battle than his own power, making him a bit of a chore to handle, kind of like babysitting a 23 year old man.

He tries to make friends whenever he can, but without making many friends in the past, he is rather socially awkward. Sometimes he might say something out of place or offensive, but usually he just doesn't understand. He is not very bright, and might do some stupid things when either fighting or just doing simple tasks. He has a good ability to be clumsy. This can be dangerous in battle, making him even more of a chore.

Sexual Preference:
Heterosexual

Likes:
Making friends, hanging around said friends, the color red (Except blood for some reason), farming, knives, jogging, fried rice

Dislikes:
His own blood, the color blue, seeing friends die or get seriously harmed, going too fast, any other type of rice

Fears:
His main two fears are seeing his own blood and disappointing his guild. As a good tactic to knock him out of a fight, just spill his blood, doesn't even need to be a lot. Seeing his own blood come out of his body can paralyze him in fear or possibly even make him faint. The weird thing is, its only his blood he is afraid of, he doesn't mind seeing the blood of others.

His fear of disappointing his guild is also up there. He is always afraid his guild mates will look down upon him and kick him out. This scares him the most as the guild was his first group of friends he could call so.


The Past


Image


Exact Reason for Joining the Guild:
He was always sought as useless or annoying, always being told he couldn't be good at anything. The guild gave him the chance to prove all of those people wrong. He joined to not only protect the remnant but to also prove himself to everyone.
Story (History):
He grew up on a small farm, away from most civilization. He never knew about the world outside his farm, and that didn't matter to him. He loved farming and loved making his parents happy. He did go to school, where he was picked on for his stupidity and bland job. It never really got to him, but with rumors, he never made many friends in his childhood.

One faithful day, a group of bandits had raided his home, wounding his father to the point where he was paralyzed to the waist down. Kenneth had tried to save him and led to the bandit to stab Kenneth in the chest. This is were Kenneth had discovered the powers inside him. Using both his Brick wall ability, and his true Friends ability, he had chased the bandits away.

With his father crippled, Kenneth had to do a majority of the chores and work to help himself and his parents. One day a man had come across the farm, asking for directions. Kenneth had guided the man, and learned he was in a guild. Kenneth had asked a lot of questions about "guilds" along the journey, and soon enough, he was hooked. At the age of 22, he set off to find a guild to call his home. Originally he went to join a guild for money and adventure, to help support his family. But after several bad jobs along the way, he promised himself he would prove himself that he wasn't useless, as so many had told him.

After getting lost on a trail, Kenneth found himself on a cliff side, staring up at a glorious castle he never dreamed of seeing before. This castle was home to the Remnant's Guild, and this is where his true adventure began. After being invited inside, he told Cadis of his plan and previous endeavors. Cadis told Kenneth about the guild and offered him to be one of the members. Of course to Kenneth's delight, he accepted without delay.

Anything Else to Know?:
(Sorry if character seems too much positive, I apologize for that)



Abilities


Main Ability:

Beginners luck: He can learn the basics of a weapon or technique a lot faster then most people. Further training, although, will require him to train. This is handy when you are short on a weapon and pick something at random to fight.

Secondary Ability:

A True Friend: When his friends are in danger, a power deep inside him reveals itself, giving him skills he himself should not know. This does not last forever although. It will wear off after the threat is gone, or 30 minutes has past, then he will be too tired to fight afterwards.


Unique Ability:


Brick wall: When Kenneth is in deep trouble, an "Automatic defense system" activates inside his body. It releases a limish green liquid into his blood stream, seeping into his body. This adrenaline gives him a durability type of magic, which can rival the fighter's durability. While this is active, he is stronger, his senses are increased, and he has a slight regenerative ability for wounds. While this magic is active, his eyes shift from a dark brown to a lime green, Signaling those that it is currently active.

However, if this adrenaline is in his body for too long, or he repeatably uses it in a short period of time, his body will crash on him, and his body will reject the magical liquid, making him gravely ill. Interestingly enough, consuming his blood or putting it in a potion while the blood has this liquid inside it, you can have a nice little potion to increase ones durability or senses. If you are gross, when his body rejects the liquid, he will vomit the liquid out, giving you a more pure liquid.

So begins...

"It is time to assemble the guild... Get them acquainted."





It was just a little before noon as the leader of this small group made his way out of his room. Today he had asked all members, new and old, to join him in the Entrance Hall of Remnant Castle for a small social gathering. The guild was still young and fresh, many of the members green around the ears and unacquainted with one another. The leader of this guild, Cadis Oraya, believed strongly in cooperation and teamwork. That was the very reason he made a guild to complete his task. But if members were not on good terms with each other and did not know each other's strengths and weaknesses, full cooperation would likely be unattainable. With no known leads at the moment there felt no better time to gather everyone up and encourage some socialization.

The main staircase in the Entrance hall elevated up half a level before splitting off into separate staircases, one to the left and one to the right. Cadis descended from the right and stopped at the top of the split. It had seemed that everyone had gathered here before him, save for the Marksman who appeared to be missing. Cadis paid it no mind at the moment looking to keep calm and organized. He was the leader, and he had an image to upkeep. Looking down at his fellow guildmates, the light coming through a stained glass window behind him illuminated the room and staining the pale walls with color. It was a nice effect that he really seemed to enjoy. Letting his lips curl up into a smile, he raises his right arm in greeting.

"Hello, Remnant Guild. And good morning." His voice was definitely still young, but it had an air of confidence, preparation. "We have all met me, but for presentation's sake, I will introduce myself formally to you all. My name is Cadis. Cadis Oraya. I am the founder of our group and the one who brought you all together this morning." He paused a moment to look everyone over again, matching face to name in his mind before continuing. "I will briefly introduce everyone by role. After I do so, I would like all of you to find someone and talk to one another. Discuss whatever you feel will help you cooperate and get along. I know you are all different, from different walks of life with different skills and different races. But let us make that an advantage, rather than a disadvantage... I am sure you're all tired of hearing my talk now, though. So on with introductions."

As he would speak, he would hold out his hand in gesture to each person to indicate that is who he was talking about. "The Co-leader and Scholar, Obadiah Knox. The Inventor, Rose Minami. The Newbie, Kenneth Maldrough. The Magician, Kurila Vershken. The Scout, Elyssa Massey. The Healer, Twillabelle Eerin, The Fighter known as Kairo the Crashing Storm. And my long-time friend and the Bodyguard, Raziel Rakshdos. I have given your names. All I ask for is a little mingling, conversation and cooperation. We are all here for our own reasons, but we are united under one goal. I have traveled the world and found some of you. Some of you found me. You are here because I trust all of you to be this world's protectors." He paused to give a final smile as he begins descending the staircase. "We are a team. We are Remnant... Welcome, one and all."

As he descended, from a set of doors to the right of the room, many of the castle's workers and staff came out with tables. Each one was leaned up against one of the pillars of the Entrance Hall, filled corner to corner with foods and drinks of all sorts. There was sure to be something for everyone.

This small social event would be the first stepping stone on the path to Remnant's success.

Rose opened one of her eyes and stared at the ceiling before she realized that she had a meeting with Cadis in a little bit. She opened her other eye and sat up in her bed. She looked around her room at the cluttered mess of books and spare parts that were scattered across the floor. She sighed. I'll clean it up tomorrow. I need to hurry and get to that meeting. She slipped on her usual dress. She looked around for her scythe but she couldn't seem to find it. She heard a clank and looked up at the ceiling and saw that her scythe was lodged in the ceiling. She easily pulled it out and put it in it's holder. It folded up to about the size of a ten by sixteen inch box. She wasn't of anything else but that weapon. It was her pride and joy. She was the only one really able to wield it since it had such an unorthodox combination of weapons. She walked over to her table where she had currently been working on a gun that worked with both bullets and crossbow bolts. It was interesting coming up with something like this. It took her a lot of time, but she thought that she would have it finished by today. If the meeting with Cadis didn't run long then she would finish it and present it to him for another weapon to put in his armory. She made quite a few weapons because she had been here so long. She had made a kind of flash paper that instead of burning into thin air, it only only activated when exposed to air, but it didn't just burn... it exploded. She smiled at the thought of her many failed attempts, a part of her room actually exploded at some point. She simply laughed. She grabbed a few of her autonomy books and walked over to the door and opened it.

She walked down the halls of the castle. She was always amazed at the sheer size of the castle. She also admired the artwork and the type of decorum that was strewn throughout the hall. The doors to the entrance hall were before her before she knew it and she opened them. It appeared that she was the earliest to arrive. She just took a seat in a shady spot in the room where no one would notice her. She waited for the rest of the people to show up and soon enough she heard Cadis start one of his speeches. She stood up and made her way toward the bulk of the group. As soon as Cadis had listed her name, she widened her eyes a little bit. She didn't want unnecessary attention. As she looked around she noticed that someone in the crowd stood out to her more than anyone else. Is that... a machination? She stared at him. She felt the urge to study him. She had wanted to make a machination since forever. She smiled a wider smile than she had ever smiled. As soon as the speech was over and all the food came out, she ran over to the dessert table and grabbed some sweets, trying to balance them with the rest of the things she was holding. She then walked over to the place she was sitting earlier but accidentally tripped and spilled the desserts on the floor. She blushed, embarrassed. Why does this have to happen to me? Her head hung low as she sat in her little dark spot in the entrance hall. She sat there in utter embarrassment. She wanted to cry because she was so embarrassed. She hugged her books tightly as she stuck her head in-between her legs. I'll just embarrass myself if I talk to anyone. I guess I shouldn't...

It was pitch black as the Azurelle opened her eyes. It was the start of a new day. She knew very well that she would have to stay in her room as most of the others were still sleeping. It was strange how long other races spent in that vulnerable state. They always miss the beauty of the sun when it rose above the horizon. Or they missed the moon glowing over the water below the castle. Truly, it was time wasted. They would not see it that way, however. Kurila sighed, and waited for dawn to break. It would be soon.

As the hour passed, the sun slowly came up. In her true form, the light passed right through her and expelled vibrant colours. She was like a prism. The walls of her room displayed these colours beautifully, and it was a shame that Kurila was the only one who could see it. The others were now starting to stir, and she figured it was time for the Guild meeting. Switching to her ugly and heavy human form, she walked to the main room. She was the first one there, it seemed. As always. Only Cadis was there, but that was to be expected. She didn't speak to him, and simply waited for the meeting to start.

After everyone was gathered, Cadis introduced everyone by role and name. He then told them to interact and get to know each other. However, Kurila didn't know where to start. She never had contact with any of these races before. She didn't know the proper way of speech, and her voice probably would have scared them off anyway. Kurila couldn't just leave, either. It would be better to wait for the other members to come to her, instead of fumbling over her inexperience of the world.

Kenneth was probably one of the last people to arrive, as he was usually late. He had surprisingly woke up pretty early, but that costed him the needed sleep to get through the planned meeting. About half an hour before the meeting, Kenneth decided to take a nap under a tree, which leaded to him being the last person to arrive.

It wasn't that he didn't care for the gathering, he was actually extremely excited for it. This is where he would finally get to see his new team-mates. He had been offered to join only a few days ago. In these days, he was looking around the castle and settling down. He didn't have enough time to speak or even see any of his guild mates, and in turn, they have yet to see him. Cadis has been the only one Kenneth has spoken to, and Kenneth barely even knows much about his mysterious new leader. Even though, he was still excited nonetheless.

He was making a fast dash towards the main hall's doors, as that is where he last remembered the meeting taking place. right as he pushed the large doors open, he spoke out.

"Hey! Sorry guy's I wa-"

He was soon cut short as he tripped over his own legs from not paying any attention.He made a small yelp as he fell; He ended up falling face first onto the hard floor. Other then crying out or complaining like he usually would, he decided to man up for his new companions, as he has already embarrassed himself enough in the first few seconds of contact with them. He quickly stood back up, brushing off what just happened with only slight coloration of his cheeks, then moved to the snack bar, not paying much attention to others, and going straight for the food.

Elyssa found the group to be quite entertaining, though not nearly as social as she had imagined they would be. In fact, she noticed that quite a few of them had been doing their best to stay unnoticed, not unlike she had before revealing herself and coming to the snack table. They had quite a collection of races, though, Elyssa had to admit. They even had an Azurelle, a race that she had only heard about from whispers and rumors and most definitely did not expect to find at Remnant Castle.

Some of the members had not done much since Cadis opened the floor to socializing, but Elyssa took a mental inventory of those who had. There was a small human girl who had made a beeline for the dessert table only to trip and drop the desserts she had collected all over the floor. Elyssa sneered, this was their inventor? she thought. The girl's name was Rose if she remembered correctly and unless the look of pure embarrassment on Rose's face and the way she curled up in shame was just an act, Elyssa doubted she was threat to her. Soon after, a Vishkanyan that she had noticed stalking about the shadows near Cadis emerged with a sneer aimed at Rose and knelt in front of her. Elyssa couldn't hear what he was saying, but working as a scout required the ability to read lips and she could make out the gist of it. The Vishkanyan must be Raziel, the only one of that race other than Cadis within the guild that the rogue knew of. Next, the owl that Elyssa had noticed enter through the window swooped over and landed on Rose's head. Suddenly, the owl was gone and instead there was a woman sitting beside rose. Beastfolk. Elyssa had amost forgotten that there was one of that kind in the guild, from that knowledge, the rogue could conclude that the owl was Twillabelle, the healer. Elyssa turned her attention to the Azurelle for a moment, it seemed that she hadn't moved and was waiting for someone else to approach. Though Elyssa was curious about her race, it was that same lack of knowledge that kept her from engaging with her.

Instead, she turned her attention back towards the snack table to see that the machination had arrived. He simply nodded a hello to her while keeping a bit of a distance between them. Elyssa almost laughed, "I'm not going to bite, you know." She shrugged and nibbled at her cheese, looking back towards the small group gathered around Rose. "If you didn't catch it already, my name is Elyssa Massey." She added, her pale green eyes flickering back towards the machination.

However, a nearby yelp brought her attention to who Elyssa recognized to be the newest member of the guild. He seemed to have tripped as he entered and landed face first on the ground. This time, the rogue did laugh. She watched as he picked himself up and went straight for the snack table, not too far from where her and the machination were standing.

"What profound grace." Elyssa bantered towards the newbie, "you must be our resident ballerina."

He looked up from eyeing the food when he was spoken to. He looked up to see a older women speaking to him about his fall. He chuckled slightly as he himself felt like laughing afterwards.

"At one point before I came here, I thought I would become a ballerina, I'm glad to see some one saw the potential in me, I'm Kenneth Maldrough, who might you be?" He asked politely.

While he was conversing with her, he looked around the room finally at everyone else there. There were mainly people in dark corners, shunning the world as it seemed, while there was one group of three in one of these corners, that Kenneth had notticed. One man looked similar to Cadis, and remembered Cadis telling him that there was another of Cadis's kind in the guild. With deduction, he figured that man was him. Next to him was two girls, one with her arm around the other. He couldn't figure out who was who so he moved on to the next person. Another girl was in a seperate corner, watching everything, seeming like she was waiting for something or someone. Finally he turned to the interesting man next to him. He was quiet, execpt he was making strange noises that seemed to have been coming from inside his body. Kenneth stared at him for a while beofre turning his attention back to the girl, who reminded Kenneth of a thief who robbed him of his gold a week back.

She heard a few words being spoken and then she felt a tap on the head and returned to reality. Someone... was talking to her? What did she do wrong? Oh gosh... It must be about the cupcake. She looked up at the man before realizing how good looking he was. She stared at the floor again because she was embarrassed. She blushed and she was being scolded. What is going on? Why am I-

She felt a set of claws land on her head and she froze. What the heck was this? She slowly reached up to grab the thing on her head, but she didn't touch anything. "Oh wow, that's good. You have great taste sweetheart. Here, try it." She suddenly realized that someone was sitting right next to her. She backed away a little. "Wh-When did you get here?!" She stared at all the people standing around her. Am I really drawing that much of a crowd? She tried her best not to draw any more attention.

She suddenly saw a woman coming over toward them. "If you didn't catch it already, my name is Elyssa Massey." She looked at her and then looked at all the others around her. She really was drawing a crowd! She needed some way to escape... She wasn't a very good socializer. She needed some way to distract them for only a se-.

She heard a large "boom" that resounded throughout the room. This was her chance! Now that everyone was pre-occupied looking at that, she could finally escape into her own little private area. She stood up and started to run before she suddenly realized that she was running pointlessly. She would have to meet all of them at some point. She looked back at another girl a corner of the room. She looked... interesting. Despite all the attention that was given to her, she ignored it. She walked over to a girl sitting alone by herself who had blue-ish skin.

She silently stood next to her before she looked her in the eye. "U-Um... Hello... I... Guess I should introduce myself. I-I'm Rose... Rose Minami." She pulled off a slight smile which really only made the situation a little more awkward. She laughed awkwardly. So awkward...

The woman he had chosen to stand beside seemed friendly, though her wording confused him. She wasn't going to bite him? Was that something humans did? Why... would she even consider biting him? It didn't take long for the girl to introduce herself, though another replied in his stead, so he allowed the matter to drop. His attention was taken to a different place entirely, as he watched a fellow comrade face-plant midsentence. Falling seemed to be a very habitual thing around here. His embarrassment was etched upon his face, though he certainly attempted to reel it back in as he approached the snack table.

Elyssa Massey turned to the male who had tripped. "What profound grace. You must be our resident ballerina." The statement confused the machination. He had not been graceful in the slightest. Why was she telling him so? And, Obadiah was certain that no ballerina had been enlisted into the guild. And he went as far to agree with her, thanking her for recognizing his potential. Humans... so strange and illogical.

The man introduced himself as Kenneth Maldrough, his name going into Obadiah's mental storage compartment, along with Elyssa's. He asked her for her name, Obadiah staying out of it, despite being in the conversation as well. He merely stood there, seeing as he had not been directly asked a question. He did not need to answer.

His tense stance would have been profoundly awkward if any human had tried to mimic it, but he held it well. He was at a seemingly permanent attention position, though it came across as somewhat casual. He noticed Kenneth look at him, possibly because of the loud, whirring sounds emitting from his machinery. However, he did not hold a stare long, his green eyes flickering back to Elyssa.

Obadiah attempted to add to the conversation, though he should have kept his mouth shut. "How long have you been a ballerina, Kenneth? You may need to keep practicing..." he asked, with a deadpan delivery. Though he was serious, his words could have been easily mistaken as a joke, for whom in their right mind would have taken their earlier conversation literally? Answer: Obadiah, who now eagerly awaited the intriguing story of how a male ballerina joined the guild.

The boy turned his attention from the food table to Elyssa and chuckled at her comment. "At one point before I came here, I thought I would become a ballerina, I'm glad to see some one saw the potential in me, I'm Kenneth Maldrough, who might you be?"

Elyssa chuckled at the smooth response, props to Kenneth for being able to joke after such an embarrassment. "Your form could use some work but other than that I'd say you're a real prodigy, Kenneth Maldrough. The name's Elyssa Massey, scout and thief extraordinaire." She flashed him a wicked grin and stuck her dagger between her teeth to free up her hand to offer it for him to shake.

Looking at the boy's face, Elyssa couldn't help but feel as though she recognized him from somewhere. She tried to figure out where when Obadiah's voice brought her attention to him, "How long have you been a ballerina, Kenneth? You may need to keep practicing..." Elyssa's smile faltered as she studied the machination's face which bore no trace of sarcasm. At the discovery that Obadiah had taken her conversation with the newbie seriously Elyssa couldn't help but bust up laughing.

"We were being sarcastic, Obadiah. Geez, you must be fun at parties." Realizing that the last statement could also be taken seriously, Elyssa quickly added: "That was also sarcasm."

She looked back over at Kenneth and the realization hit her. She snapped her fingers and pointed at the newbie, "you're the guy I cornered and got some gold off of a week ago, aren't you? Huh, small world. You won't be wanting that back, will you?" The question was rhetorical, of course, and the thief slid her hand onto the hilt of her dagger to make sure Kenneth got the message as well.

He chuckled at Obadiah's comment and Elyssa's response, He already found her to be rather funny. He was going to shake her hand when she mentioned the gold she stolen from him not too long ago. He squinted at her for little while before also noticing the similarities in the thief that stole from him. Being completely oblivious to her grabbing the hilt of her knife, as he is mainly oblivious to a lot of signs, he sighed and responded, taking the question seriously.

"Yes, I would really like my money back, if you so please.."

Reading his face you could easily tell that he wasn't joking, and could even be thought of a determined "ready to fight" kind of look, even though he just has a stern face on.
