Description

Oralee Breslau

❝There's a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in.❞

❝The Basics❞



Image
| Full name |
Oralee Ilene Mahina Breslau

| Gender |
Female

| Age |
17

| Mage Type |
Light

| Rank |
U




Image



❝Deeper Description❞




| Eye Color |
Ocean Blue

| Hair Color |
Lily Pink

| Height |
5' 8"

| Weight |
112 lbs.

| Skin Tone |
Light Peach

| Distinct Markings |
Has a tattoo of two ''chibi'' wings on her back, centered in the middle, though up by her neck.

| Physical Description |
She is very tiny, almost fragile, carrying a crystalline look while she uses her powers. Naturally, she tries to avoid the stereotyping that she has at home, about being very dainty; she has given up, though, and carries on as if it doesn't exist. Though, she is still pale - her skin usually fades closer to marble, even when she is not channeling, and finds herself looking in the mirror to see a ghost.
Her hair is taken care of with volcanic ash, mostly something that she brushes off Akiari when her phoenix is re-born. (It's a horrid crime, but it keeps her hair nice). The pink is soft for at least two days after a thin coat of the ash.
Her eyes are usually watery, due to her over-reactions to everything and her raging emotions.
Mostly, she wears the same outfit because she's usually too lazy to wash anything more than the same thing (so has several pairs of the same outfit!), though she finds it is very comfortable to live in. The choker can get annoying easily, though, and sometimes ends up taking it off.



❝Interests❞

| Powers |
-Main Power Area:
Light of the Rising Dawn - Can summon a large blast of light, in a circular area, giving blinding effects for a period of time. Also is known to cause the occasional fire, due to scorching heat.

Light of the Blessed Spirits - Can summon either one, or multiple, Spirits of Light - to be offensive, defensive, healing, etc.

Lightning Storm - Can summon a storm of light. This is often misinterpreted, as it tends to lean towards a lightning bolt with the ferocity and heat, but nonetheless is a storm of jagged bolts trying to kill people, it's all the same to her.

- Special Move:

Light of the Phoenix - Can summon hailing showers of light. It lasts for a decent amount of time, unless ended by herself or her demon, and carries the same scorching heat of the sun.

-Secondary Area: Water

Moonlight - This is actually a healing move of hers. It summons tiny sparks of light, like snowflakes, which circle around a person. It's a slow heal, but has saved many lives by using it, and requires little-to-no energy.


| Weapons |
✔ Amazing with a bow and arrow
✔ Proficient with daggers
✔ Mildly poor with swords, though retains better than the average person.


| Likes |
♥ Music - playing, discussing, listening, etc.
♥ Fighting to practice, or for real
♥ Being alone
♥ Pretending her troubles don't exist
♥ Summoning light spirits for fun; and hearing their excellent tales!


| Dislikes |
✖ Being in a crowded space for too long
✖ Being put on the defensive side, when it's not for healing
✖ Being put out of fighting entirely
✖ Someone damaging an instrument
✖ Someone who sings like a banshee



❝Welcome to my Life❞



Image
| Personality |
She is a loner, as she prefers. After being raised on the streets, she sees more of life for what it is; somehow retained her light powers through the whole mess, believing whole-heartedly that they would convert to shadow. However, she can socialize for small periods of time, being cheerful and happy when she is needed to be.
More often than not, she is seen alone reading a book, or doing something music-related. When she is not, she is either socializing with the bare minimum of people that she must, or practicing her fighting with Akiari.

| Theme Song |
I Sang Of Leaves - Tolkien Ensemble



❝Who I Am❞




| History |
She was abandoned when she was young. Not at an age that she could really fend for herself; fortunately, she knew that her demon, Akiari, existed. (Often times Akiari would hide from Oralee). Her parents had found that she was ''different''; often times, while eating her favorite food - (those cute little soldier cookies, with that chocolate on top!) - she would summon Light Spirits, thinking it entirely normal. And she saw them as her companion friends, at that age; why not, to summon friends? They left her on the side of the street, Akiari circling her with her fiery tail.
Akiari ended up becoming a large role model to her, and taking care of her for a while - stealing what she could (money, food, etc.) and moving Oralee from building to building, trying to keep safe. Akiari forgot about herself in the time, but she kept a good friendship with Oralee. The two both enjoy music, and Oralee finds that her demon's company is much more pleasant than others, preferring to keep ''to herself''. When they moved to the school, Akiari found a chance to find herself again, and has become the old whining pleasantry she started as.



MY DEMON



Akiari Mizore

❝Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars...❞

❝The Basics❞

| Full Name |
Akiari Laini Mizore

| Gender |
Female

| Age |
22

| Mage Type |
Fire



Image



❝Deeper Description❞




| Eye Color |
Blue/Purple

| Hair Color |
Violet

| Height |
Human - 6' 0"
Phoenix - 3' 0" (Prefers her phoenix shift)


| Weight |
Human - 138
Phoenix - 26


| Skin Tone |
Milky-rose

| Distinct Markings |
Wears a ''cat collar'' for Oralee. It helps her know where she is, hearing the light bell tingling; after all, when she's a phoenix (which she usually is), her flight is soft as a snow owl.

| Physical Description |
As a human, she is larger than most. She embraces this, being perfectly fine; since she rarely uses the body, she gorges on ice cream and sweets, hardly exercising. Which suits her fine; she hates lumbering around in the skin of a human, preferring the feel of fiery feathers to her skin. She knows that as a human, her dress is weird; she was inspired by cats when she was younger, and usually dresses in striped leggings due to this, wearing shorts and overly-large shirts. It's only to keep comfortable, Akiari says, but Oralee fears that one day she'll end up rolling everywhere, and will have to intervene with her demon.
When she is a phoenix, the collar is very annoying; she wears it only when they must, for adventuring outside, she prefers to be the hunter she always was - minus the burning of a building, every so often. Her feathers are usually not burning, but when she gets cold (which is very fast), they ignite to help her keep warm.



❝Interests❞




| Weapons |
✔ Cute, little, powerful fire crackers.
✔ Daggers, hidden up all of her sleeves.
✔ Ancient swords, carrying runes of cities.


| Likes |
♥ Music - A phoenix's voice is said to carry healing powers.
♥ Being alone. Especially alone. Not-with-Oralee alone.
♥ Caring for her "child".
♥ Flying as a phoenix.
♥ Staying warm.
♥ Eating. Especially eating.


| Dislikes |
✖ Being in crowded areas.
✖ Being a human for too long.
✖ Having to exercise her human self.
✖ Seeing her food be taken away.
✖ Going through the process of Phoenix re-birth.



❝Welcome to my Life❞




| Personality |
She is very reserved. She stopped voicing a lot of her complaints some time ago, after being forced to turn into a motherly being; she learned that her life is very little, really. She sees open areas as a perfect space to fly in, and enjoys it, breezing her wings out - but prefers to ditch the bell. She loves her freedom more than food; she hates the cat bell dinging at her neck, but still wears it obeyingly.
Akiari lost her true personality after becoming a mother. Before, she was a reckless person, taking pride in the dangers of life and not looking to see what tomorrow held in store; she knows her ways, now, and does what is best.

| Theme Song |
The Eagles (feat Renée Fleming) - Howard Shore





|Thoughts on Other Characters|
She doesn't socialise enough, and has yet to form her own opinions.

|Anything Else|
Would trade nearly anything for a day of music.


So begins...

Oralee was sleeping on her desk when the bell rang. She lifted her head up, and looked around herself, hair tossing softly in confusion.

”Come on, Oralee! It’s time to go home now, you can get some real sleep there!” Her friend, Rosae, gently shook her shoulder as she walked by. A light gust of wind pushed her blonde hair over her shoulder, and she continued walking. ”You know, if you stay after for another day, I think I might have to officially call your mother and tell her you’ve gone insane.”

Oralee returned the smile, standing up slowly. Still don’t have any reason to tell anyone… I guess it’s okay. They can think I live alone, that’s fine. She picked up her books, and gently tossed one of them back to Rosae. ”You left that, earlier. You might want it for tonight.”

Rosae smiled, and waved goodbye, hurriedly following her boyfriend out the door. Oralee watched them with a sad smile, collapsing back into a desk. She was going to wait until everyone had left, as was her custom, for when she had to venture anywhere besides a different class. Hell, she’d go everywhere alone, except for Akiari.

”Ora, you staying behind again?”

She jerked her head up to see Kosik, who was leaning on her desk. ”Yeah, I have my club… I don’t know what they would do if I didn’t show up!” She smiled nervously.

”It’s so stupid. Come on, you can’t take one day off?” He leaned closer.

”…N-nope! Not gonna happen, sorry, I’m sure they’d all die in a tragic fire without me!” She laughed, leaning back into the seat as she smelled the alcohol on his breath.

”I swear, I’ll cut that kid.” Akiari was growling from somewhere above her, but Oralee continued to ignore her.

”I… Uh… I should be going. To the bathroom. Because I have to…go there. Because that’s where I’m needed.” She hurriedly grabbed her books, almost falling out of the desk as she slid out, and rushed out of the classroom.

”Better get moving, Oralee… Not a lot of time left.”

Oralee could hear the footsteps behind her, but took no notice, trying to run fast enough to be on time. She felt another burst of wind, and smiled to see the phoenix flying besides her. Oralee reached out to pet her demon, as was her usual, feeling the burn of the fire. She had become so used to it, that it was nothing more than as if a warm blanket had been dropped on her hand, though the smell of burning flesh was as unpleasant as ever.

In a moment, small snowflakes were dancing around her. More centered on her hand, realizing it was hurt, but a few still stuck to her chest – right above her heart. ”Thanks, guys… But that’s never going to heal.” She gave a small smile, and brushed them away. ”Try all you want, but we know I dance alone.”

”A dance with death / Let the shadows sing / The light shines down / For when the bells ring…”

She found the room for the club with a slight look of horror. Oralee looked around, unsure if she was actually supposed to go in, and shuddered as Akiari shifted. "Just go in!" she whispered, leaning towards Oralee to grab a container of ice cream from the freezer she always carried.

"Well, someone seems very talkative today," she hissed, opening the door.

"Someone seems very bitchy today, but I'm not saying anything." She grabbed a spoon, and quickly began eating, savoring the strawberry taste with a smile.

Oralee wandered in and sat down silently, hoping nobody would speak to her besides the teachers.

♠Lilly Zephyr♠




The trip back to the class room was quicker than expected.

Right before Lilly took the turn that would lead to their new class of Mages, she paused with a realization she didn’t like. She shifted uncomfortably and itched her left shoulder. “I hate kids,” she muttered to her husband before entering. Then the clock hit 2:50.

Lilly walked into the room, tall and glaring. “Everyone in your seats, now. Before that clock even thinks about moving to this time you should already be in your seats. We are not a daycare; we won’t wipe your asses for you.” OZ followed behind Lilly until they arrived to the front of the room, that was when he took his position in the right corner of the room, watching the kids.

“Bryce,” Lilly stated clearly. “Take it away.”





Iyana Liadon




Iyana had migrated into the classroom, greeting and making small talk with her fellow mages. Many of them seemed fairly nice and seemed to be excited to work together. Then a familiar voice came through the door, calling to her.

“Iyana! What’s up?” Iyana turned to see her changed brother standing by her, smiling away. Iyana herself let out a squeal and jumped on her brother.

“I knew you could do it, Ciel! I just knew it! I’m so happy you are here, I don’t have to start this journey without you!” Iyana held her brother at arms length. “Why are you just now getting here?”

“Hi, I’m Yako! My partner is Melody, she’s over there pretending to sleep.” She said as she pointed her beak towards her friend. “What’s your names? OOOH! Can we be friends? I wanna be friends.” She said excitedly.

Iyana smiled at the bird demon, then looked over to her handler, Melody. “Miss Yako, I would love to be friends!” Iyana pulled her brother over to a desk next to the desk she decided would be hers, right next to Melody. “Hi Melody. I’m Iyana Liadon and I hope we have an amazing year together!”

“Everyone in your seats, now. Before that clock even thinks about moving to this time you should already be in your seats. We are not a daycare; we won’t wipe your asses for you.” Iyana turned quickly to the front, her face to determined. She didn’t want to be scolded on the first day. It would be unacceptable. The woman in the front of the classroom didn’t look at all old enough to be the Shadow Mage she had heard so much about from her family and grandfather. Lilly and Bryce Zephyr were among some of the most powerful Mages ever. Why they were teaching high school Mages? Who knew.

Iyana tried to keep her excitement contained. What would she learn today, how would her abilities grow? The possibilities were endless! Despite the terrifying Mrs. Zephyr and her soul devouring demon, he looked the title, Iyana was happy to have them here. Giving her their knowledge? Best part of being allowed to attend this mysterious club.

Bryce Zephyr


Bryce and Lilly were outside of the classroom just before 2:50 when she turned to Bryce. "I hate kids." Bryce stifled his laugh as they walked into the room as Lilly started yelling at the students. “Everyone in your seats, now. Before that clock even thinks about moving to this time you should already be in your seats. We are not a daycare; we won’t wipe your asses for you. Bryce. Take it away.”

Bryce smiled as Ikari jumped onto his shoulder. "Good afternoon students. First off, Lilly's right. We are not here to take care of you. While we will not flat out set you up for failure you will be challenged." Second. You will pay attention while you are in this classroom. What we teach will keep you alive, and if we judge you not worthy to go on the class "Field Trips" then you will stay here. Third. I understand that not all of you are what you would consider people persons. I encourage you to make friends. They can become the fuel that drives you to become as strong as you can be." Bryce smiled remembering back to him and Zach's fights.

He was distracted by his memories for a few seconds before Ikari pawed at his head snapping him back to reality. "Right, sorry. Ok so this semester I will be your Magic Spells and Creatures teacher while Lilly will be your combat instructor. Today being our first class I figured we could start out with something fun..." Bryce's smile changed to more of a smirk. "I know how all of you must feel. Coming to class and paying attention is a real drag. So! I'mma give you a chance to get out of class. If you so choose you can challenge me to a duel. If you manage to hit me you don't have to show up tomorrow." He smile looking around at the class's reactions. "And if that isn't good enough for you then you can challenge Lilly here to a duel. If you can hit her you can have the whole rest of the week off." He smiled and opened his arms. "Any takers?" He continued smiling as he scanned through the class putting names to faces, but there was one student he couldn't remember seeing in the papers listing off his students. His eyes flashed as he locked his gaze with him. 'Who are you that thinks he can sneak into my class unnoticed?'

Ceil Liadon


Ceil smiled as Iyana jumped all over him happy that she was happy. "I know I've got a lot of explaining to do, but can we do it later?" He smirked slightly as a bright little bird flapped over to him and his sister twittering about being friends. Ceil's smile fell quickly. 'Friends? Why would anyone want to be friends with me?There's no chance anyone would want a failure like me to be a friend. I'm just gonna stick with Iyana. As long as I have her and Briar I wont need anyone else.' Iyana was able to reply, but before Ceil could form a coherent thought long enough to reply the teachers came into the room.

“Everyone in your seats, now. Before that clock even thinks about moving to this time you should already be in your seats. We are not a daycare; we won’t wipe your asses for you. Bryce Take it away.”

'This is one of my teachers? Who comes into class like this cussing out the students?! I have a strange feeling about being here... I really hope they don't notice I don't belong...'

Shortly after the other teacher spoke up introducing himself. "I know how all of you must feel. Coming to class and paying attention is a real drag. So! I'mma give you a chance to get out of class. If you so choose you can challenge me to a duel. If you manage to hit me you don't have to show up tomorrow. And if that isn't good enough for you then you can challenge Lilly here to a duel. If you can hit her you can have the whole rest of the week off. Any takers?"

'Challenging your students to a fight?! What kind of crazies are these people?' As Ceil was having his internal panic attack he felt like someone was watching him. Bryce had locked his gaze directly onto him. 'So much for going unnoticed... Only way I'm going to get out of this is to prove I belong here. Gods I really wanted to avoid having to do something like this.' Ceil stood slowly lifting one of his hands to the white half helm he wears on his head hiding most of his face from the other students. "I-I'd like to challenge Mrs.Zephyr."

Bryce


Bryce's smile flashed as he kept his gaze locked on the boy. 'So that's your game then? Fight to prove you belong here. I'd likely be angry if he didn't remind me so much of myself, and besides Lilly most likely won't realize he isn't actually one of our students yet so she won't kill him... For now... I'll let him sneak along, but sooner or later he's going to have to do something.'

Oralee's eyes wandered about the room. She sat when she was instructed, watching the teacher walk in, and looked immediately at the ground.

She started talking quickly, leaving Oralee to her thoughts, which she liked. She knew that she would pay no attention, after all; how could she have possibly gotten into the academy in the first place? Oralee must have been invited to be the kid who is always laughed at, or just someone to watch fail. She could imagine no one, who in their right mind, would invite her to an academy. And for mages, too.

"Ora!"

"Aki."

"Shut up." Akiari frowned, and bit on the plastic spoon. "Are you paying attention? You should be. This is very important, and I know you'll want to go on those field trips! You can find pretty places to go play harp, and you can find me a new flute, too." She grinned.

The old flute had an interesting ending, so she thought. The poor thing had been ran over by a car several times in its life, leaving it to a...rather horrid end. It had sailed on the Titanic, survived by being carried off by a passenger in need - Isaac Woods, if she remembered rightly - had traveled all over Europe, being played by Akiari, had been fixed by the best Chinese flute player she ever met... It had such a fantastic life, and it was melted away by a volcano. To her own fault, she had let Akiari play on the side of the flames, and scared her bad enough she dropped it; it was her fault, and she may as well replace the flute. (Because, if she was to be honest with herself, Isaac was a very cute man whom she would have loved to meet and must please his spirit by replacing the poor thing).

"...I know how all of you must feel. Coming to class and paying attention is a real drag. So! I'mma give you a chance to get out of class. If you so choose you can challenge me to a duel. If you manage to hit me you don't have to show up tomorrow. And if that isn't good enough for you then you can challenge Lilly here to a duel. If you can hit her you can have the whole rest of the week off. Any takers?"

"Never, by the grace of the Gods..."

"Good choice."

"Nobody asked you." Oralee snatched away the ice cream, and shoved it into the cooler. Akiari sighed, and shifted into the phoenix, curling her tail feathers around Oralee's arm.

"If you say so, but I might end u-" Levi was interrupted by the suddence enterance of Lilly. Levi internally seethed at what she said, but showed no sign of anger on his exterior. He instead of doing something stupid, walked over to a desk and sat down near a girl that appeared to have, to Levi's surprise, Pink hair. Levi, after a few seconds of being surprised, waved lazily at the girl. He sincerely hoped she wouldn't see at something other than a friendly gesture, he didn't want to have any sort of awkwardness with his classmates.

Levi hadn't been told if there was a specific place he had been supposed to sit at, so he had simply choosen an empty seat. After a few seconds of contemplating whether or not to ask his teachers, he darted his eyes back to Lilly and finished hearing the last of her words. Levi focused his attention on who he assumed was Bryce. Levi silently sighed in relief as he noticed that Bryce was much more polite than Lilly. He probably couldn't have handled two... blunt and aggressive teachers, he probably would have exploded by now.

Levi wasn't particularly surprised that the MSC , Magic Spells and creatures, class was to be taught by Bryce and even less surpised that Lilly was to be a combat instructor. Levi did however, notice the slight change in Bryce's smile and focused his mind.

Hell no.

No way.


Levi had spent a few minutes listing reasons why he would not fight Lilly or Bryce. The most important reasons he found that he wouldn't fight Bryce were Levi's inexperience and the fact that Bryce was rumored to have done quite a bit. As for Lilly, that was a given, Lilly seemed to be more proficient in fighting than Bryce, was a shadow mage, and Lilly was a stronger mage than Levi. It would be a waste of Levi's time for him to fight either, and a hit on his pride. He didn't want to end up vomiting in the bathroom because he had been beaten easily.

Then he saw the kid with a strange mask volunteer and searched his memory for a list of students. He didn't see any matches for the child and was sure that the kid was an intruder. Levi, even with his memory, didn't remember seeing the kid anywhere, and had looked at a roster for the children. Then again, there was also the chance that the kid was an exchange student, so Levi didn't speak up. Levi did however, intend on confronting the kid later on, without intimidation of course. He just planned on asking a few questions that would seem harmless but hold a lot of power. Levi then changed his attention to the fact that the kid had actually volunteered and smiled. He would have a chance to gauge Lilly's power and the kid's simultaneously. This was too good of a chance to pass up studying both.

Levi internally facepalmed when he saw Robin volunteer but didn't say anything. He had faith that Robin wouldn't get killed, but he wasn't sure how powerful Bryce was. Levi really wished he had taken the time to learn telepathy spells. At least he could have helped Robin that way. Then he remembered his demon and inconspicuously threw a wad of paper at his demon. Baal had never fallen asleep but had instead simply rested and quickly changed size when he was hit with the paper. Changing between a normal and small size wasn't particularly hard for Baal, seeing as he was versed in Earth Magic and the spell was simple enough. Baal had, this time, made himself as small as a bird and manuevered himself onto Levi's desk. "Lat-" Levi was about to begin mocking Baal before he remembered that he was in a classroom. Levi didn't want to miss out on any 'field trips' that might be planned by the Medieval club.

Min straightened herself up when she heard Lilly and Bryce come into the room, then went to a seat when she heard Lilly's statement. She felt slightly embarrassed that she had been reprimanded on the first day of class but didn't show so other than the almost unnoticeable blush on her cheeks. Azathoth, having not wanted to take up too much space, shrunk to the size of a bird and sat on Min's shoulder.

Min would have snickered at the 'make friends' comment, but decided not to. She wasn't the social type and wouldn't be in the right place to laugh at Bryce's comment, so she instead decided to simply follow the advice if she could.

She decided that she would attempt to take on Bryce. She knew that she most likely couldn't beat him in a battle, but she hoped that she could at least hit him. She was after all, able to increase her speed and could most likely land a hit if their battle didn't take too long. "I'll make an attempt to fight you Mr. Zephyr, but I wont promise I'll be able to." Min paused for a second, "I'd also not like to spar in an enclosed space, if that's a problem, then I retract my acceptance." Min was not stupid, she wasn't going to fight in a territory where she would most likely lose. Azathoth simply shook her head at Min's acceptance, but couldn't do anything about it.

Iyana Liadon




"Good afternoon students. First off, Lilly's right. We are not here to take care of you. While we will not flat out set you up for failure you will be challenged. Second. You will pay attention while you are in this classroom. What we teach will keep you alive, and if we judge you not worthy to go on the class "Field Trips" then you will stay here. Third. I understand that not all of you are what you would consider people persons. I encourage you to make friends. They can become the fuel that drives you to become as strong as you can be."

Iyana bit her lip out of excitement, a habit of hers. The energy the two of them gave of was scary, but awe inspiring. Any mage that cared could see that they were highly respected.

"...I know how all of you must feel. Coming to class and paying attention is a real drag. So! I'mma give you a chance to get out of class. If you so choose you can challenge me to a duel. If you manage to hit me you don't have to show up tomorrow. And if that isn't good enough for you then you can challenge Lilly here to a duel. If you can hit her you can have the whole rest of the week off. Any takers?"

Even Iyana thought that if someone took that offer, they were nuts.

"I-I'd like to challenge Mrs. Zephyr." Ciel said as he slowly stood. Izac and Iyana’s jaws dropped, Ciel, who had always been the misfit in the powerful Water Mage family known as the Liadon’s, was about to challenge one of the strongest Shadow Mages of her generation. What exactly happened when she left?

She hadn’t noticed the two people behind her that had raised their hands. All she heard was people continuing to volunteer.

“If I may, I wish to duel you, Mr. Zephyr.” A boy with white hair said.

"I'll make an attempt to fight you Mr. Zephyr, but I won’t promise I'll be able to." a taller girl said with a pause, "I'd also not like to spar in an enclosed space, if that's a problem, then I retract my acceptance."

“All these people are crazy,” Izac whispered to Iyana, curling up in her lap.

“Or they really want the day off…” Iyana was internally debating on whether or not she should attempt at a match with one of the two. But her inner voice scolded her, saying she wasn’t ready for such a thing. “Yeah, I’m not going to try.” Iyana giggled with her demon as she poked his belly.

Everyone else talking.

Scarlett Oliva Sinclair


“Today kids, there will be slightly chance of rain but no worries! We’ll have plenty of sunlight the next following days!!” Her alarm clock droned on and on about the weather.

“You know its actually gonna be sunny the whole day including today.” Avery corrected, "Stupid radio people. They don’t know anything.”

“Shut up…” Scarlett mumbled into my pillow, “Sleep. More time. Shut. Up.” There was a period of silence before laughter erupted. “What?!”

“You do know you’re over thirty minutes late for class.” Avery replied smirking.

“YOU IDIOT!!!” She screeched while flying off the bed in a hurry making everything on the bed slip off. “Move you idiot. Why didn’t you wake me up earlier.”

“Remember the first time I tried waking you up?” He replied crossing his arms and sat down on the only chair in her room.

In her closet, she browsed her eyes around her closet for a while before settling on her lazy clothes. Scarlett switched out of my pajamas’ into a madras, white band tee underneath, and ripped jeans with combat boots in the closest. By the time she came out Avery shook his head showing his disapproval in her choice of clothing for the day.

“Oh yea. Whatever. Works for me bro.” She smirked then grabbed her backpack and headphones. “Leggoooooo.”

“Legos? I wanna play with legos! Legos! Legos!” Avery cheered as he jumped in the air making her even late then she already was. Annoyed, she raised a hand then slapped him hard on the shoulder making him stop. “Ouch Scarlett! Was that necessary?” Raising an eyebrow, she dragged him out the door making him mutter a string of cuss words.

“Come on slug.” She muttered, glancing down at her palm for the classroom number. It was the first day of Magical Arts Club and she was already late. Waking up late was a daily thing for her on the break but absolutely not on school days.

Whilst searching the hallways for the classroom, Avery took a step back observing her curiously. “You’re nervous aren’t you?” He grinned teasingly, “There’s nothing to be afraid of darlin’.”

She patted her thigh discreetly wiping off sweat from her hands. “What? Nervous? Calm kid is my middle name.” He moved his arm around her shoulders in a comforting way and shook slightly.

“You’re gonna be alright kid.” He muttered just as they approached the classroom.

Scarlett quickly shrugged off his arm and replied, “Please behave Ave. Just for today.” He raised his hands up in alarm and nodded his head slightly. She placed a hand on the doorknob and twisted it slowly opening the door. Choosing a seat quickly with Avery following behind, Scarlett thought to herself. One thing I hate is being in the front row and being one of those eager beavers. I may make good grades but I am not that thirsty.

The tall guy in the front, who seemed to be the teacher, was talking when I sat down, "...I know how all of you must feel. Coming to class and paying attention is a real drag. So! I'mma give you a chance to get out of class. If you so choose you can challenge me to a duel. If you manage to hit me you don't have to show up tomorrow. And if that isn't good enough for you then you can challenge Lilly here to a duel. If you can hit her you can have the whole rest of the week off. Any takers?" Scarlett tried her hardest not to scoff at his little challenge. There was no way anyone in the classroom could take on the teachers. They were probably extremely trained and had a ton of experience.

Looking up at the teachers she took a moment to observe them. The girl teacher seemed tough, strong, and easily able to take down any student in the class. The guy teacher seemed the same way, but there was something about him that Scarlett felt that it would be easier to fight against. Avery glanced over from her right and smirked noticing she was deciding whom to fight. He bent down to whisper in her ear, “Pick the guy. You’re gonna go down either way.” She swatted her hand shooing Avery away from her ear. Scarlett had already begun to make her mind on not fighting anyone instead.

Several students had already begun to volunteer. She shook her after every challenger spoke up. She glanced down at her hands wryly and thought to herself, “Oh man, I better not have to fight because I came really late.”

Bryce Zephyr


Bryce looked over the class as they debated weather or not to accept his challenge. The first to accept was the boy who wasn't supposed to be there who'd challenged Lilly. 'I hope the kids good Lilly very well may end up hurting one of the students during this little game.' The next one to volunteer was Robin, the ice mage. 'This will be fun. My first fight as a training mage was against an ice mage. I wonder what kind of a fight he'll be able to be put up.' Robin's challenge was quickly followed by Minerva the earth mage who's only request was to fight in an open space. 'I knew we'd have at least one volunteer but I never expected so many of my students to have this kind of fire.'

The next challenge came as quite a surprise. Martin, the very sickly looking boy raised his hand seemingly looking at Lilly. Bryce only nodded to the boy as he continued scanning over the class not wanting to miss any of the volunteers. Bryce's devilish smile widened as the next hand shot up. 'Leo, it's been a while since I tried to teach you how to fight the first time. I can't wait to see how you've grown.' Not close to finished the class continued to offer up volunteers. Kai volunteered shortly after Leo challenging Lilly.

Bryce smiled looking over the class. "Alright now unless there are any other volunteers I believe we have a proper set up. Miss.Scarlett I'm going to have to request that you participate in sparing with one of us. This will be the only warning. Showing up late or inexcusably missing this class will drastically harm your chances of attending our Field Trips." Bryce smiled running through the challenge list in his mind again trying to decide where they'd be going. "Now I believe there are three challengers for each Lilly and I. Robin, Minerva, and Leo. You will be with me on the roof of the west wing of the school for our match. Kai, Martin, and Mr. Liadon. You will be with Lilly in the forest for your matches." Bryce had to smirk at the black haired boy's response to his figuring out his last name. 'I saw what happened when the two of you met. I can put that much together. "Scarlett you are free to chose either of us to be your opponent." Bryce looked back over the class. "Alright, those of you who chose not to challenge us you will need to choose one of us to watch. While you may not fight directly I expect you to pay attention to the battles. Learn while you watch. Demon will not be allowed to participate in the sparing matches. I don't want any of them getting hurt. OZ and Ikari will act as the judges during the matches. If anyone is wounded they will ensure that they are quickly delivered to the medical wing. So! If there are no questions I believe we should get the show on the road! Those wishing to watch me as well as Robin, Minerva, and Leo let's make our way to the top of the roof. Everyone else follow Lilly into the forest." With that Bryce walked out the door to the classroom his students following him closely.

Upon reaching the roof of the school Bryce turned and smiled. "Welcome everyone. This part of the roof is specially protected for sparing matches. We are completely hidden from view here. We will begin in order of challenge received. Unless someone really wants to go first and the others find it agreeable." Ikari stood next to Bryce and grew to her full size standing level with Bryce's waist.

Ceil Liadon


Ceil's original calm began to fade as more and more students volunteered to challenge the teachers. 'Well this is what I have to do to prove I belong here.' After a few minutes of explanation he found that he would be fighting Lilly in the forest. 'Perfect. I'll be able to use the abundance of plants for an advantage.' He remained quiet but turned offering Iyana a small smile before following Lilly out to the edge of the forest.

Oralee followed the other students to the forest, and grinned. She knew exactly where she would be practicing; and it was not fighting. She could never care more if she forgot all her channeling in the next day, all she wanted was this clearing to herself for a few hours.

Akiari seemed to know what she was thinking about, and curled her tail tighter, the fire settling in her skin. She swatted the fire out, hoping nobody else noticed, and stared ahead.

"I can't imagine why anyone would challenge them. It's suicidal... Well, maybe I should have." She blushed slightly, shifting from foot to foot.

Everyone seemed to be talking to someone else.

All she had was Akiari, chirping at her shoulder.

Oralee brushed away a small tear, straightening. You're alone, but you can't let it get to you. Don't let it get to you. Don't forget...

"It's okay, Oralee. You're only human." She had not seen Akiari shift, and her seemingly older-sister patted her head. She leaned closer, hugging her demon, and put her head on her shoulder.

"I just want this to be over with fast. I haven't played harp in a while... And then we can get you a flute... Maybe Mozart's Concerto, I know I've been waiting a while to play that."

"Focus, please. You need to learn what you're doing."

Oralee nodded softly.

Martin stood there waiting to see what the teacher had to throw at them. He was mostly standing still because his stomach would hurt more if he moved around too much. As the spectators gathered surrounding chatter started to overcome the ambiance of the forest. He felt it was almost a shame that the others were forced to stick around and watch the fights. The forest might of been a lot more calming if it weren't for the diminutive crowd observing them. Between all the walking he had done to get here and the stress of having this many people watching him he started to develop a cold sweat. He wiped what little moisture had gathered atop his brow with the side of his hand when he noticed someone who stood out more or less
from the others.

Instead of chatting with each other like the participants and remaining students who chose to watch these fights she was simply standing by herself with her fiery bird demon. She didn't look all too cheery either, she had even wiped away a tear to further cement that notion. Her bird shifted into a taller less than thin looking human form and started to comfort her magus companion. Something had seemed to be troubling his fellow classmate which piqued his curiosity. Martin was no real conversationalist but other peoples problems definitely grabbed his attention more than his own problems did at times.

He turned a bit from the teacher, keeping a portion of his focus on what she was doing but also focusing on the other student who he was attempting to talk with. "Hey." He directed his brief greeting to the pink haired girl. It was not very loud because he did not want to interrupt anyone or draw too much attention, he only could hope she heard him over the general dialogue of the surrounding conversations. "Sorry if I seem like I'm prying but I was just wondering, is there something the matter?" He asked her in a pleasant yet inquisitive tone, his volume still a bit low. He hoped she would not be repulsed by him
simply talking to her, the sick, off looking person he was daring to address her. It had happened often enough before
to be of some concern to him.

♠Lilly Zephyr♠



"Alright, I'm Ceil Liadon, Plant mage." He smiled hearing the murmurs from the surrounding students as he lifted his left hand pointing at Lilly. "Seed Bullet." Hundred of small super fast seeds shot out of his sleeve towards his teacher most of them fell scattering across the ground and quickly dug their way down into the soil.

Lilly jumped lightly out of the way, smirking at the young man. Oh, a Plant Mage. I'm terrified. It may have seemed harsh, but she had always seen any other Mage Types as weak. Or at least she thought of Shadow Mages as more superior. Bryce and Zach were the only exceptions to her philosophy. Lilly had discovered last year that if she stayed silent during a battle, it usually gave her more of an edge, and with a simple smile on her face, it was hard to know her next move. But something deep inside her always told her never to underestimate anyone. To keep on her toes. Even the simplest things would trip her up long ago. When he old teacher was still alive, Robert, that was one of the many things he had taught her. And then there was Jessie, the man she had spent endless months with to learn and become even stronger. Lilly hadn't heard from him in the longest time, just as she hadn't seen anything of Liam, her father.

The bigger the head, the harder the fall, she had heard many times. Some of the students from the previous year that were watching obviously didn't seem interested in anything that was going on. They were going to die young in Lilly's eyes. Only those who watched every chance they had would live long enough to put their powers to use. Boy it had been a long day. Lilly just couldn't wait to go back to the darkness.


ON THE ROOF



Lilly kicked her feet back and forth as she watched her husband spar with the young Ice Mage. Many of the students were looking at her oddly and one finally had the guts to ask. "Mrs. Zephyr ... aren't you supposed to be in the forest?"

"Yes I am, but if you kids cannot learn the difference between a Shadow Clone and the real thing, your dead meat. Besides. It's a tracking lesson. I lost all the kids that were going to the forest in the hallway so I could switch out with the Clone. In all aspects, the Clone and I are exactly the same. There is no way of telling I'm over here and the Lilly in the forest is a fake. Until she gets hit that is. Then she'll dissipate and I'll be there in a second flat." Lilly fluttered her pitch black wings behind her and smiled devilishly at the young student. "I think the only one who would know about my Shadow Clones is little Leo."

Lilly stared intently at the young Ice Mage, letting her mind wander. He reminded her a lot of Robert. And, in a strange way, it made her miss him. Despite all the awful words they had exchanged, they had an amazing bond. Lilly, yes the all powerful Shadow Lord, still had nightmares about what the three young Mages had to do in order to save the world.

Something about the young man reminded her of Robert, and it wasn't the Mage Type. What was it?

Scarlett Oliva Sinclair

Scarlett's face fell when her thoughts came true. In the background she could hear Avery's soft snickering obliviously directly toward her.

"Alright now unless there are any other volunteers I believe we have a proper set up. Miss Scarlett I'm going to have to request that you participate in sparing with one of us. This will be the only warning. Showing up late or inexcusably missing this class will drastically harm your chances of attending our Field Trips. Now I believe there are three challengers for each Lilly and I. Robin, Minerva, and Leo. You will be with me on the roof of the west wing of the school for our match. Kai, Martin, and Mr. Liadon. You will be with Lilly in the forest for your matches. Scarlett you are free to chose either of us to be your opponent. Alright, those of you who chose not to challenge us you will need to choose one of us to watch. While you may not fight directly I expect you to pay attention to the battles. Learn while you watch. Demon will not be allowed to participate in the sparing matches. I don't want any of them getting hurt. OZ and Ikari will act as the judges during the matches. If anyone is wounded they will ensure that they are quickly delivered to the medical wing. So! If there are no questions I believe we should get the show on the road! Those wishing to watch me as well as Robin, Minerva, and Leo let's make our way to the top of the roof. Everyone else follow Lilly into the forest." Mr. Z explained.

Feeling like one of those cliche head banging on desk when something goes bad moments in movies, Scarlett scowled instead at Avery.

"Aww poor whittle Scarlett is gonna get beaten up on the first day! Who are you gonna choose?!"Avery chuckled behind her as she followed the rest of the class out. Ignoring Avery, she kept a steady pace behind the group.

"Ok. If I fight Mrs. Z then it's a girl vs girl fight. Meaning she can do what ever she wants. Including the fact she can hit harder then a guy would. Or maybe Mr. Z would just be as painful. Or I could stand way behind everyone and he'll forget. Yes. Yes. Yes." Scarlett thought to herself pulling a thinking face. Just as the class split off into different directions, Scarlett trailed behind Mrs. Z's group.

Avery, being the nut head he usually is, took off last minute clutching Scarlett's wrist toward Mr. Z's group.

"What are you doing?!"Scarlett half yelled half whispered.

"Oh please, I know your little plan. Just follow my suggestion an you'll be fine. You'll probably be equally beaten up either way." Avery smirked. He could read Scarlett like an open book unlike most people. In response, Scarlett pinched Avery's shoulder and marched off ahead of him. Leaving him slowly drag behind muttering a string of curse words. By then they were lagging fairly far behind the group.

After a couple minutes, they had finally arrived at rooftop. Mr. Z began speaking, "Welcome everyone. This part of the roof is specially protected for sparing matches. We are completely hidden from view here. We will begin in order of challenge received. Unless someone really wants to go first and the others find it agreeable."

"Ok, I'll go last. Unless they forget or run out of time." Scarlett thought to herself as she took a few steps back from the group. She was still able to see the match from where she stood but was barely noticeable in her opinion.

The ice mage was the first one up and was already summoning his power. He spoke proudly though she could tell he was nervous somewhat, “The first move goes to the one who was challenged, correct?”

"Sorry if I seem like I'm prying but I was just wondering, is there something the matter?"

Oralee jumped, startling Akiari. She had been focusing, she remembered...nothing, and dipped her head sheepishly. "Oh, nothing's wrong..."

"You little liar." Akiari sniffed, and looked at Martin, curtsying slightly. "Forgive the two of us. She is...not as social as she should be, for reasons that are another conversation, should you wish for it." She realised that she was rambling, and smiled softly. "I fear neither of us like starting a conversation, mostly because we're both bad at it... She's having a hard morning."

Bad life, you mean?

Her demon looked down at Oralee, and shook her head, slightly poking the child to encourage her.

"...She's right." She nodded, trying to smile to Martin. "Thank you for speaking to me. My name's Oralee Breslau, Light Mage, and this is my demon, Akiari." Oralee paused for a moment. "Who do I have the pleasure of speaking to?" she chimed, hoping her voice was high and cheery.

This is so different. I can be friends with normal people, I can do that... But I swear, as soon as I walk into the Mage community, I put my tail between my legs and turn hide. Her history was enough to do that, to anyone really, and what did she think she can do? The boy she was speaking to, she knew she could make friends...if he would let her.

"Oh, nothing's wrong..." The girl seemed to look uncomfortable talking with him. He was about to recede from this encounter himself when her demon stepped up and spoke on her behalf. "Forgive the two of us. She is...not as social as she should be, for reasons that are another conversation, should you wish for it." Her demon politely interjected, quite the surprise for him. "I fear neither of us like starting a conversation, mostly because we're both bad at it... She's having a hard morning." The friendly demon explained her and her companions reasons. Martin was still quite surprised that they got along quite as well as they did. It was as though the term Demon only applied in title alone for her.

"Thank you for speaking to me. My name's Oralee Breslau, Light Mage, and this is my demon, Akiari." Martin smiled back to them, happy that Oralee as she introduced herself responded positively enough. His smile held a few subtle elements of surprise, a smile of serendipity per say. He had never met another light mage in his life. Before just a short while ago he didn't even know there were other mages besides himself. Since then it's been a whirlwind of discoveries for him, so many new realizations hitting him that he had yet to catch up. He didn't even know the names of his fellow classmates whereas some of the others seemed to know each other and even the teachers. He was in every way the new kid here.

"Who do I have the pleasure of speaking to?"

"I'm Martin Siec. It's a pleasure to meet you both as well." He politely introduced in as formal a way as he knew how. His voice was rough due to the cough building in his chest but his tone was cheerful and pleasant enough. "I can understand having a hard morning." He empathized with the sentiment as he had woken up on cold hard streets more times in his life than a guy his age rightfully should. He didn't know anything at all about her background though so her definition of hard morning and his would need to be hammered out later. He wasn't exactly looking to have a -Who's life is harder than who's- competition though. He didn't see it that way at all.

He was about to talk some more but before he could start out he broke into a loud, hacking cough again, his hand covering his mouth. After about half a minute or so the coughing fit died out, allowing him to breath once again. He looked down at the palm of his hand and saw a couple extremely miniscule crimson dots telling a tale he was most concerned about. He clenched his hand, hiding the specks before stuffing that hand in his pocket while he talked once more.

"I've never met another light mage before truth be told. I'm a light mage as well you see." He informed her about his magic. When she said light mage he assumed she had similar powers to his, which is to say not very impressive ones.
"I see you and your demon get along quite well. Truth be told I'm quite impressed." His expression turned to a more quizzical one. "I mean, how does that even happen? If you don't mind me asking but is there like some sort of selection process when you become a mage? Or a ritual for trading your demon in for better ones? I've just never seen one quite as nice as Akiari."

Kai Atropos



"Would it sate your curiosity if I said that I was simply a student eager to learn?" The boy had a sheepish grin on his face when Lee asked him a question. "Just kidding," Levi's grin faded, "The reason I want this knowledge is simple," Levi paused, "Ipsa scientia potestas est." Kai nodded.

Knowledge is power, she thought.

"To be more precise, I need a backup plan in case something goes wrong and our lovely-little teacher here loses control in the future. I also plan on speaking to those who have fought Bryce, but that's for a later time." Levi laughed when he heard the demon talking about his motives, "I'll let you choose the location, that way you don't have to worry about oh-so-terrifying me." Levi said with a hint of sarcasm.

Kai's attention whipped to the field as the battle begun. Mrs. Zephyr had jumped to her right. Maybe she favored her right? She wouldn't be able to tell from just that. "This is an epic battle that everyone is scared of? You better give all so I have something to watch," Lee grumbled at Kai. The pink haired girl looked down at her demon for a split second, but anyone could tell there was unspoken discipline in her stare. "We passed an old fountain on the way here. I think that will be good," Lee decided. "How about it, Kid?" Lee wasn't to worried about Kai, she could handle herself, but there was that five percent of his body that wanted Kai to keep to herself to remain stable. That was when he remembered something.

"What mage type are you anyways..."

"I'm Martin Siec. It's a pleasure to meet you both as well." Martin. I'll have to remember that name... He seems like a nice kid. Maybe he'll even tell me that I'm not alone, I was meant to be here. Oralee always had her doubts. She could not imagine why she would not - if something was to go wrong, then she would have seen it coming, would she not? And then the pain would not be as hard. But it always is.

She was about to speak, when he broke off coughing. "Oh, my Gods, are you alright?!" She was at the brink of summoning the snowflakes, but being unsure of what the effect would be, she could not summon the will to do so. They only work when they want to... And I haven't seen them aid a cough... Light help me, I'm lost!

Oralee stood shaking, her knees almost collapsing. She felt absolutely horrid that she was unable to help. She reached forward, and then pulled back, not knowing what to do. Akiari had turned away entirely, watching the fight for herself, to see if she could learn anything when her Mage would not.

As soon as he stopped coughing, she breathed a heavy sigh of relief. I hope he's alright... Light, let him be... He seemed to be, as he introduced himself, and Oralee forced herself to stop worrying.

"I'm unfortunately an offensive..." She scratched at her head nervously. "I've honestly never really met other mages. It's nice to know I'm not alone."

"I see you and your demon get along quite well. Truth be told I'm quite impressed." Akiari coughed rudely, looking at Oralee from the corner of her eye. She seemed to shoot the glare that screamed 'At least someone appreciates me', but Oralee ignored her. "I mean, how does that even happen? If you don't mind me asking but is there like some sort of selection process when you become a mage? Or a ritual for trading your demon in for better ones? I've just never seen one quite as nice as Akiari."

She laughed at his last few questions, grinning. "I wish! If I could trade Akiari... Gods know I would." She stuck her tongue out to the back of her near-sister. "I don't really know how we get along so well. It might be how we started out, together... She just kind of appeared, and after I...left home, we got really close." Oralee shrugged. "I guess you don't get along with your demon, huh? Mind if I ask what's wrong?" She offered a nervous smile, holding her right wrist with her left hand.

It was a stance she had learned through one of her favorite books; when a soldier is ready to fight, she grasps the right with the left, and she prepares to dance the spears.

Iyana Liadon



"Y-yeah. Nice to meet you too," He quickly shook his head and closed his eyes for a second before opening them again. "My name is Nexon Vermillion. This is my demon, Noel." He introduced himself, taking half a step back to reveal Noel hiding beside him.

Nex realized this. He place his hand on her head and gave a faint smile. "You don't have to be so tensed. Just say hello," Her head went down a little. The ears she tried to hide showed itself and lowered a bit, and her tail did the same, just like a dog. She took her time, but brought her head again. She faced the other way and spoke shyly. "H-Hello."

"S-She's a little bit awkward around Mages, so please don't mind her."

"I know I might look scary, Noel. But I would never hurt anyone." Iyana giggled. There was no way she could intimidate anyone. "Here," she picked up Izac and held him high. "This is Izac! He's got ears and a tail too! It's kind of funny, I'm a Water Mage and he's a Fire Demon." Iyana scratched the top of Izac's head then poked his nose. "He actually bites. But he's tiny, it doesn't hurt bad."

Iyana cocked her head to the side ever so slightly, curious as to why the demon might not be comfortable around other Mages. All the demons in her family were very sociable, maybe a little competitive, but very sociable. "If you ever need a girl to talk to, I'm all ears," Iyana said to Noel with a smile.

"Oh, my Gods, are you alright?!" Oralee looked quite upset that he was coughing at the time. It was impossible to tell what her thoughts were. Martin figured he could draw a general conclusion but anything too specific would almost inevitably prove false. "It's alright. This is just normal." He reassured her, hoping that would help calm her before the conversation moved forward.

"I'm unfortunately an offensive..." She had added after he commented on her being a light mage, which he had not seen before. "I've honestly never really met other mages. It's nice to know I'm not alone." He nodded in agreement to their mutual feeling on the matter.

She seemed to be quite amused by the idea's he had conjured about trading in demons and such.
"I wish! If I could trade Akiari... Gods know I would." They had quite the interesting relationship. They were almost like siblings in a sense. It illuminated the contrast between him and his demon's relationship like a lighthouse cutting through the darkness for all incoming ships to see. "I don't really know how we get along so well. It might be how we started out, together... She just kind of appeared, and after I...left home, we got really close." Oralee had quite a bit in common with him, he could see that now. The major defining difference was still the matter of Akiari and his own demon.

"I guess you don't get along with your demon, huh? Mind if I ask what's wrong?" Martin simply shrugged. He didn't really mind talking about his demon, not like it could hear him anyways with it being trapped in his reflection after all, or so he thought. "I don't mind. It's nothing really all too complex. He's just... Mean." He could find very few other ways to describe Advocate better. "He showed up not long before I left home myself. Ever since we met he's been nothing but mean to me.
He's cruel, his opinions about everyone else is horrid and no matter what I do he's always looked down at everything I do. Even if I've done something exactly the way he'd wanted it done he'll say something completely the opposite of what he believed before and make fun of me for it. It's like i've upset him somehow before but I can't figure out what so he's
taking it out on me." Martin didn't mean to talk at such length about his gripes about Advocate.
The frustrations his demon had caused him in the past have kind of made that particular topic somewhat sensitive for him.

"I apologize for rambling on like that. It's just been rough and he's not made it any easier. I think it's simplest to just say he and I do not get along." Martin summarized his relationship with Advocate. "I've talked quite a lot about myself though.
I'd like to hear more about you." He started to think about a topic to kick off his inquiry, an idea coming to mind relatively fast. "What are your thoughts on the school so far?" He asked, curious to hear what she thought about the school. He was interested in hearing what she had to say and contrasting it with his own experience, giving him a broader viewpoint to look at the whole club and mage counsel situation with.



The entire time Advocate had listened in to their little conversation of theirs, noting everything Martin had said about him. He did not judge him for what he said about him, that would be reserved for their next conversation. He chuckled, his voice like a phantasmal whisper barely audible above the sounds of the faint winds rustling across the tree tops. He was quiet enough and positioned right so that only Oralee and her demon could hear his almost nonexistent laughter. As he floated invisibly on past the three of them he made his hand just tangible enough to lightly brush across a few chairs on the back of Ikiari's neck before resuming it's evanescent existence, becoming as physical as the air surrounding them, his visage imperceptible to all as he drifted away with the wind, still remaining within earshot of them though. He so loved unnerving the witless fools that surrounded him and Martin. The Advocate was advocate to only one but that did not mean he couldn't have fun, especially if it was at Martin's expense.

"I don't mind. It's nothing really all too complex. He's just... Mean."

Akiari raised her eyebrows in surprise. She could not imagine the thought of a demon being horrid; but if the name was any hint...

"Even if I've done something exactly the way he'd wanted it done he'll say something completely the opposite of what he believed before and make fun of me for it. It's like I've upset him somehow before but I can't figure out what so he's
taking it out on me."


Oralee tried her best at a disbelieving stare. She never could pull it off, but if any time warranted a curious look, this was it. "I... Dear me, I can't believe it. My sorrows are with you." She ducked her eyes, embarrassed. You're not back home, you can't just do that, Ora.

"I've talked quite a lot about myself though. I'd like to hear more about you."

She looked at him, curious. Wanting to know about me. Perhaps he got knocked in the head? "Well... To be honest, it's all weird." She laughed. "I feel as if I really shouldn't be here. As if I'm the one who they invited, just to watch and see if I can hold up... I don't know, really, it just doesn't feel right. I believe I should be at home, where I belong, but here I stand." Oralee realized that she had already began to lose her focus, and blinked, looking up at Martin.

"And what do you think of it? Our teachers seem to enjoy it, our classmates seem to have their fun... At least I know I certainly don't." She scrunched her nose up in disgust.

Akiari shifted quickly into her phoenix form as a cold whisper brushed over her. The ice cream dropped to the ground - Oralee had not realized her demon had managed to get into the cooler, let alone know were it was - as the phoenix's feathers took their fiery glow. She chirped quietly, and took to the air, finding a need to stretch her wings if she could not find what startled her. I doubt that was only a gust of wind.

"I... Dear me, I can't believe it. My sorrows are with you."

her sympathy was quite welcome. Her words were few but surprisingly effective. Not because of the words themselves but the situation in which they were called for. Martin had no one to share his problems with, no one to talk to about the burdens he is plagued by. Sharing his woes about his demon to someone else was of great relief, even if he didn't really know it. The fact she listened and honestly cared warmed his heart.


She gave him a weird look when he had asked to learn more about her. Was there something unusual about what I asked?
He wondered. "Well... To be honest, it's all weird." She laughed, sounding a little unnatural considering there was little humor in what she said, unless perhaps what she was about to say would tie it all up and make sense of it. "I feel as if
I really shouldn't be here. As if I'm the one who they invited, just to watch and see if I can hold up... I don't know, really, it just doesn't feel right. I believe I should be at home, where I belong, but here I stand."


That was somewhat funny to Martin, though the laughter on Oralee's part still seemed a bit off. That was almost exactly how he felt about being here. Seeing the capabilities of even the other students around him made his already glaring overall weakness all the more clear. These people were training to become warriors of magic, Martin couldn't even heal someone without potentially incurring severe damage. His real ability was to help others by healing people who need their health more than he does. What could I possibly offer to these people which they do not already have? He often asked himself from time to time during his enrollment into the Magical Arts Club.

"I know how you feel. Let me let you know though, if I have any chance at all of succeeding here, you'll hold up very well."
He reassured her, wondering if she could even hear him as she seemed to be trailing off into her own mind.

"And what do you think of it? Our teachers seem to enjoy it, our classmates seem to have their fun... At least I know I certainly don't." She asked, looking straight up at him as though snapping back into reality.

"To be honest? I'm not looking forward to it. I've got the effective jogging pace of a koala and I've never thrown a punch in my life. I've been punched before plenty but I've never even thought about hurting anyone before. I'm not sure I could." His voice was exceptionally low as he leaned in close, making sure the rest of what he had to say was privy to Oralee and himself alone. He really didn't want the other students or worse, the teacher, to hear.

"I actually didn't want to challenge the teacher in the first place. I just happened to have my hand up at the wrong time
as usual." With that said he leaned back, his volume returning to it's normal semi-quiet self. "It's just as you said now though.
But here I stand." He quoted Oralee's earlier statement, reusing the phrase to convey a nearly identical meaning, only applied to his circumstance instead of hers.

It just so happened the position he was standing in relative to his facing towards Oralee gave him a distant view of the edge of the schools roof top. He could just barely make out a figure above the foliage. Is that guy flying over the roof? He wondered, squinting as he tried to distinguish the faint details better. At this point it looked clearer that the figure was falling, not flying. "Hey, that guy over there just fell off the roof." Martin mentioned out loud. His thoughts sometimes came out of his mouth whenever he didn't pay enough attention to himself. I wonder if that guys gonna be okay? He wondered, continuing to watch the figure descend into the forest which they were currently all in.

"To be honest? I'm not looking forward to it. I've got the effective jogging pace of a koala and I've never thrown a punch in my life. I've been punched before plenty but I've never even thought about hurting anyone before. I'm not sure I could."

Oralee could not help herself, and giggled, covering her mouth with her hand. She had heard about koalas, but never seen one; Martin using the comparison seemed weird for her, and cheerful in a greater sense. She had to agree, though; she had taken more than her fair share of hits, and given out only a few. I guess that still means I have more experience than him..

"I actually didn't want to challenge the teacher in the first place. I just happened to have my hand up at the wrong time
as usual."


She frowned. He had challenged the teacher? "Wha-"

"Hey, that guy over there just fell off the roof."

Oralee spun on the the ball of her foot, to be facing the rooftop of the school. Indeed, there was someone falling; Akiari chirped quietly. Unconsciously, the snowflakes started to glimmer around Oralee. "Gods... Is there anything we can do? We have to try, we have to do something!" She looked to Martin, frowning. "Maybe the teacher won't notice, if we go over there... I don't know about you, but I'm at least going to try."

"Oralee, you are certain to find yourself at home when a...'field trip' comes around."

"Akiari, shut up!" she hissed. "It's one of my few chances to do something right. I want to try, please..."

"Gods... Is there anything we can do? We have to try, we have to do something!"

We, yes, we. Martin knew exactly what this entailed. He was directly involved now whether he liked it or not. Not that he didn't want to help. He knew if he was going to be of any help to anyone today, this would be it. He was worried about leaving to go check it out though. With the teacher's black butler watching over them while she and the plant mage dueled they might cause a disturbance which would be rectified by the mysterious looking demon.

He was not looking forward to being beaten up, either physically or verbally. If he went with Oralee then the teachers would most likely scold him and punish him in some way too. If he stayed however he was looking at being the callous teacher's punching bag for some time. Either which way he looked at it, it didn't make a difference. He figured he might as well help the falling mage out, then at least someone will have had a better day than him.

His day wasn't all too bad though. He learned quite a bit about the supernatural world and met Oralee, a nice light mage like himself. He almost wondered if this kind of background she and he shared was common to most light mages or if this coincidence was exactly that, a coincidence.


"Maybe the teacher won't notice, if we go over there... I don't know about you, but I'm at least going to try."

Martin looked back at the duel. Considering how much setup the plant mage was requiring to effectively establish his spell list's synergies the duel could last a while. He estimated that the fight would probably not reach a conclusion before they returned if all went accordingly.

"Oralee, you are certain to find yourself at home when a...'field trip' comes around."

"Akiari, shut up!" She and her demon quarreled.
"It's one of my few chances to do something right. I want to try, please..."


By this point motes of light were drifting about her. Martin stepped forward, easing his weight onto his crutch while moving directly in front of Oralee. He reached past the wisps of light and, rightful permission or not, lightly placed a hand on her shoulder. "It's alright. Let's go see if he or she needs our help." His deep dark blue eyes met her ocean blue eyes. His tone was reassuring and his mouth was a friendly yet determined smile. Removing his hand from her shoulder he turned to the direction the mage was falling and proceeded to slowly limp his way towards the mage's landing site.

He figured if there were any consequences for what they were doing, he alone would accept the blame. After all, he was the one who was meant to be standing in line to duel the teacher, she was simply a spectator. Worse comes to worse he would make sure Oralee would come to no punishment, even at his own expense.

All the while his demon watched, never missing a moment of this. Every decision made by Martin would form the basis for his argument later, this instance was no exception.

♠Lilly Zephyr♠



Lilly had noticed that Leo's power had been increasing, so she eyed him, curious as to what little Leo was doing. Then the worst possible things happened. Leo actually landed a punch on Bryce! But Bryce was quick to respond with a counter, sending their nephew far off into the forest, near where her battle's were taking place.

"Bryce you idiot," she said more to herself than anything as she flew off, following the scent of Leo. It didn't take long for her to find him, along with a blonde haired male sitting on Bryce's boulder. Leo looked fine, thank the Gods, but how? With the force of that hit, it was almost like Bryce was hitting ... Zac. Lilly dropped in front of Leo who was storming away from the man on the rock. "Are you alright Leo?" Her wings dissipated and for once, Lilly looked concerned. Bryce could have killed Leo, their family.

Wait till Annie hears about this... Lilly shuddered at the thought of angry Annie.

"I'll kick your uncles ass for this later, alright? Do you want to stay with my group for now or do you want to go to the infirmary?" Lilly sighed, letting her head hang as she kneeled down. "That was to close ... Bryce is going to die."

No matter how much Lilly wanted to confront the man on the rock, she couldn't. From far away, she wasn't sure if it was Zac. They had nearly identical scents, their aura was the same but stronger ... but it had been so long. Last time she remembered seeing Zac was 13 years ago. She didn't even remember if she had run into him since then.

All she knew was that her nephew was upset, so he was priority.



THE BATTLE IN THE CLEARING



Lilly, or the one that was battling anyways, smirked at the boy. What he was planning? She had no idea and didn't care enough to try and figure it out. The seeds weren't much of a distraction, but the vine swinging right at her was. It was aiming for her midsection, a harder place to dodge. If it made contact, it would go right through her, so she should make it look like it went through on purpose.

With that thought, she covered her body in the paralyzing Shadow Fire that could kill anything it touched if not controlled right. The vine passed right through her, no problem. Then she felt the real Lilly's presence enter the forest, a ping of worry hit her. Not that it was her fault if it was discovered she was a Shadow Clone, but it would ruin the surprise. The Clone looked over at the demon OZ, who shrugged his shoulder lightly and signaled for her to continue on.

The Clone 'popped a squat' on the ground creating the illusion of entering her Shadow State by turning her eyes completely black and chanting odd poems in Latin. Shadows emerged from everywhere, joining together in front of her to create an 8 foot tall mass of shadows, writhing about as they waited for a command from the higher ranked Shadow Clone sitting behind them.

"It's alright. Let's go see if he or she needs our help."

Oralee gave a faint smile. "Let us hope that we don't get in trouble..."

If we do, I won't let him take anything. It's kind of my fault, I guess - I don't know if he would actually have done anything on his own, but I want to. Besides, I wouldn't let anyone take shit anyways, if I'm there... Even if it was their fault. I just... can't.

She started following Martin, watching Akiari jump into the sky and fly ahead. A few of the phoenix's feathers started to fall to the ground, scattering to ash before they hit the dirt. Oralee sighed sadly. She's dying. Great. Well, I guess I did need more ash for my hair...

Her focus slipped back to where she was walking, and she finally noticed that Martin was suffering from a limp. She gave an odd look, but took no more notice of it. If anything, she was barely bothered by it; who was she to judge? She had been cast out of her family for...various reasons, but that was only how she was born. Everyone's different, and I feel we forget that all too much.

"I wonder if we'll get there, before a teacher does." She did not mean to speak out loud, but once she did, she simply looked the other way. "I mean, I guess I don't want to get in trouble, that's all-"

Auntie Lilly dropped in front of Leo who was in the process of storming away from the man on the rock. "Are you alright Leo? I'll kick your uncles ass for this later, alright? Do you want to stay with my group for now or do you want to go to the infirmary? That was too close ... Bryce is going to die." As she spoke, Leo's aunt kneeled down so as to look up into his face. She was so... sad. She seemed terrified of the thought of losing him. Anger momentarily forgotten, Leo held out his hand. "Stand up Auntie Lilly, there's no reason to be so upset. I'm alive, and we're heading back to your part of the forest. Walking all the way to the infirmary seems like a hassle, and I'm ok. So why don't we just go over to where, I'm assuming a shadow clone, is having your duels." Leo smiled as he spoke, trying to cheer up his Auntie. When she stood up, Leo stepped in and hugged her for a moment. "Thanks for coming to get me Auntie Lilly." Leo said simply, looking up to smile at her. At that he turned to leave.

However, it appeared the man on the rock had other plans for Leo. He dug around in, what appeared to be a backpack of some sorts, and pulled out a package, bound in leather. Taking aim, he hurled this package at Leo, who, after a moment, caught it with the back of his head. Furious, Leo stood up, and turned towards his father, storming back towards him. "What the hell!" Leo exclaimed, grabbing his father by the collar of his shirt. "You don't just throw heavy shit like that at people! Someone could get hurt, you dumbass!" Leo shouted in his father's face. Zac could only sit, wordless, and listen. The fiery temper, the blazing red hair, all of it was just like Leo's mother. Zac smiled. "Easy now son, that's a gift for you. They're from your mom. After watching your fight with Bryce, I thought now would be the time to give them to you. After all, your hand strikes were pretty pathetic so maybe these will help you lack a punch, huh?" Zac laughed at his own bad joke, Leo only groaned. Zac continued. "I figured you'd be able to sense it coming, but maybe I was wrong. Regardless, you better watch that temper of yours, it'll get you into a real pickle someday. Anyhow, I gotta get out of here, I don't wanna be here when Lilly or Bryce sends word to Annie that I was here, or worse yet that Bryce actually hit you. She might actually kill us both..." Zac shuddered at the thought. There weren't a lot of things that scared the A Class Mage, but an ill-tempered Annie was certainly one of them. "Toodles son, maybe I'll see ya around." At that, Zac's aura began to surge. So powerful was the magic around him, that it threw Leo away from Zac, landing on his butt some three feet away from his father. "Now wait a minute! You can't just leave!" Leo shouted above the roar of Zac's powerful aura taking shape. "Who was my mother? Why won't anyone tell me?" Leo shouted. If Zac heard him, he didn't show it, only smirking at his son, before vanishing in a flash of white light. When the light faded, Zac was gone. "No... No, NO!" Leo shouted, running up to the rock his father had sat on. "Come back here! I still don't know anything! You can't just leave!"

Furious, and beyond consoling, Leo's own power began to surge, however, unlike his father before him, Leo's power wasn't concentrated on anything, it was just building for no reason other than that Leo was furious. So great was Leo's anger, that gravity began to distort around him. So powerful were these fluctuations, that the earth began to crack, large sections of rock were torn from the ground, and hurled in random directions. Bryce's boulder was hefted from the ground, and hurled some sixty feet away into a tree. Even the sunlight near Leo wasn't above his rage. The powerful fluctuations in gravity distorted the light, shattering the waves and separating them into different colors. The power continued to build until Leo could contain it no more. All at once, with a roar of rage, Leo released the power. When the energy dispersed, it did the only thing Leo knew how to do, mess with gravity. So, within a thirty foot radius of himself, gravity became massively increased, just for a second. Within that moment, as if a massive fist had struck the ground where Leo was standing, a massive crater came into being, some thirty feet deep affecting everything but Leo. Spent, Leo collapsed in the center of the crater, exhausted. As he lay there, the package that Zac had thrown at him, which lay just outside the radius of his fury, fell off the ledge and rolled down to where Leo was. As it fell, the leather that bound it became undone, and two shiny steel gauntlets came to rest at Leo's side. They were crimson and silver. Inside the left gauntlet was a little paper note, which read, "For you, my darling son. Hopefully these will protect you from a world which is far more dangerous than I hope you will ever have to know. Be safe, my precious boy, and know that you are loved. ~Mom"
