Constantly talking to His daemon when he has the chance. Generally sits next to open windows. Has a younger sister who is now attending school with him. (she will be a surprise to him) The two of them are still very good friends and get along very well on all matters excluding the Mage's Council.(Annie)

Main Power Area: Wind

Basic Power: Wind Blades - close to medium range blades of wind.

Major Power: Tornado Blades- Surrounds self in a whirlwind of wind blades chopping and slicing anything within 10 circular feet. Can stop and slice bullets and repel the shrapnel.

Dimensional Distortion: Creates a dimensional pocket for storage and movement pocket is attached to the castor. Currently holds the weapon gifted by Aella.

Bladed Hands- Can form blades of wind around his hands creating dual daggers but over the entire hand.

Tornado Fist- Creates a whirlwind around Bryce's hands. If struck the target will be blown back in a clockwise rotating pattern.

Tornado Kick- Works the same as Tornado Fist but the rotation is reversed.

Wind Messenger- Bryce can use spirits of the wind to mutely converse with people.

Wind Tunnel- Bryce can focus his power forward creating a wind tunnel blowing at speeds up to 250 mph.

Fire Bryce:

Flame Absorption- By catching a fire-based attack in his right hand (chained hand) hi will absorb the fire into his arm giving himself increased fighting power.

Flame Aura- After catching enough fire into his arm Bryce gains an aura in addition to his normal wind aura. ex. If he has a protective whirlwind around himself it will be combined with a fire whirlwind. A wind blade will have a flame tail behind it burning through the cut. etc.

Flame Possession- As Bryce takes in and absorbs Fire Magics the chain on his arm will change from black to red beginning at his shoulder working to his palm. (physical changes- Hair will turn red. Chain will be red. Eyes red. Aura of flame.) If the red chain reaches his palm he will become the "Fire Bryce" his eyes will turn red and personality will change completely. If "Fire Bryce comes into control he will remain until the Fire Magics has completely worked its way out of Bryce's body. (The chain will completely return to the black color.) Idle it takes 30 min for the energy to expend itself. Active it will take 10 min to 30 min depending on the absorption of Fire Magics. Can not use his own fire to fuel the Fire Magic chain. He looses the ability to use Wind Magic in this form but gains a mastery of Fire Magic in its place.

Bryce Zephyr


' YAWN' "What a drag... New school... New club thing... New room... New roommate... This is going to be wonderful. What do you think Ikari?" Bryce said as he was moving hi bags up into his new room. Subconsciously he flicks the temperature dial down to 50 degrees.

"The rooms are too small, not enough open space. Lots of people, and this room is to hot."

"I know, I know, I know and I'm working on it." Bryce throws the window open then closes his eyes focusing on the moving winds. Through the room the air begins to circulate. After a moment the winds stop and the room is pleasantly chilled. He stretches out, "There how's that?"

"Much better but your not supposed to use your powers like that what if someone saw?"

"Then I guess I'm in trouble." He sits and relaxes as Ikari jumps into his lap. He begins petting her enjoying the nice cool air flowing through the room. 'Really hope my roommate likes it cold.'

Kira actually smile genuinely at the Keeper and his demon. “Sure. I guess you have earned it. Just don’t die on your way to your dorm. Get plenty of sleep because we have a regular class at … 4:45. I would rather your demon not miss my class today either. I think it is a rather special one.” Kira laid back down in the shade and did a roll over, a natural cat thing. “Don’t be late,” she mumbled.

"Yes ma'am, Thank you Ms. Kira." Zac said with a smile. Zac nodded at her politely, then at Alan, who seemed to have garnered Ms. Kira's attention. Zac wasn't sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing, but he was too tired to care. Zac jogged away, nearly crashing into a tree. "Oops," he chuckled, rubbing the back of his head and hoping no one saw. After regaining his bearings, and his balance, Zac made his way across the campus back to his dorm. He fell over once again whilst tripping over nothing in front of several of his classmates, much to his embarrassment. Finally winding his way through the long hallways and numerous staircases, Zac opened the door to their room and nearly fell over when he walked in. The room was freezing cold. Pitt shivered in his hair. Not wanting to sleep in the cold, Zac turned the Thermostat up to about 80 degrees and jumped into bed, pulling all his covers over his body and ignoring the boy and his demon sleeping on their couch. Zac pulled Pitt out of his hair and snuggled her close to him to keep her warm. She was so small, and she needed to be even warmer than Zac. Still too cold for him to fall asleep, Zac made sure to set his alarm to 4:30, giving him a few solid hours to power nap. Finally, after what seemed like forever, the room started to warm up. Just as it hit about 75 degrees, Zac felt himself become incredibly drowsy. He and Pitt had had a long day and they deserved a good nap in a nice cozy bed. Zac smiled when Pitt snuggled closer to him. "I love you Pitt." Zac whispered. She rolled over and smiled in her sleep. Finally, Zac felt himself drift off to sleep.

Ikari awoke pawing at Bryce's face, "It's to hot in here fix it." Bryce opens his eyes and looks up at her.

"Good morning to you as well Ikari. Gods it is hot in here." Looking at the thermostat. "85?! What the hell? This thing was at 50." He turns down the thermostat and looks around. He notices a patch of blonde hair sticking out of the covers of the other bed. "What a drag... Ikari what do you think?"

"He needs to know that this room is going to be cold, but don't use your powers this human isn't supposed to know."

"All right fine." He pokes the sleeping boy awake as the air conditioner turns on blowing cold air into the room. "Ummm hey. I feel like i should tell you... This room needs to stay cold." Ikari stood next to Bryce's leg scowling at the still sleeping boy.

After what seemed like a very short while, Zac woke up. He'd been poked awake by what he assumed was his new roommate. He remembered getting some literature about it earlier that week. The boy prodded him again, saying, "Ummm hey. I feel like i should tell you... This room needs to stay cold."

"Sorry man," Zac said sleepily, "That little fox thing must be your demon. Does he...she... whatever gender it is, need it to be cold? We personally like it warm, but I'm sure we could find a happy middle." Zac asked hazily, almost not recognizing the significance of what he'd said. "Wait... demon? You're a keeper?" Zac said, snapping awake. "Oi, Pitt, wake up. Our new roomie is a Keeper too!" "Man, why do we have to wake up... I'm so tired!" Pitt said, whining loudly. She sat up and rubbed her eyes. "Can't we go back to sleep Zac. I don't like that kid, he smells funny and his demon looks dumb." "Pitt!! Behave yourself, I don't care how sleepy you are. I'm so sorry. Pitt's not very nice when she's tired. As for us being in a room together, Rob must have arranged it. Sure as hell makes explaining Pitt a load easier." Zac pondered. "I don't believe I've introduced myself. I'm Zac, the little, rude one sleeping here, like I've mentioned before, is Pitt." Zac said, introducing themselves. "We're obviously Keeper's too. It's nice to meet you." Zac said with a smile, he extended his hand to shake. "I really am sorry about her behavior. We've had a long day, what with physical training and fighting with an F class mage, poor little Pitt is all tuckered out." Zac sighed. "She always get's cranky when she's tired."

"She. Ikari is a she, and yes I'm a keeper."

"Man, why do we have to wake up... I'm so tired!" Pitt said, whining loudly. She sat up and rubbed her eyes. "Can't we go back to sleep Zac. I don't like that kid, he smells funny and his demon looks dumb."

He eyes Pitt. "I will ask that you refrain from insulting Ikari again. I don't care if you insult me, but don't insult her."

"Pitt!! Behave yourself, I don't care how sleepy you are. I'm so sorry. Pitt's not very nice when she's tired. As for us being in a room together, Rob must have arranged it. Sure as hell makes explaining Pitt a load easier." Looking at Zac's hand 'At least he apologized...' "Yeah... I'm Bryce and my dæmon is Ikari. Pardon me if I don't shake your hand... we have trust issues, and I'm sorry about your training... must be a drag."

Ikari hugs closer to Bryce's leg and whispers, "I don't like the small one it looks like food. Doesn't seam like it'd be useful in a fight." "Ikari please be nice I don't want to start a fight... It'd be a drag. Anyway we're new here and... yeah."

Bryce only looked at Zac's hand. Zac, getting the message, puts it away for fear of an awkward situation developing. "Yeah... I'm Bryce and my dæmon is Ikari. Pardon me if I don't shake your hand... we have trust issues, and I'm sorry about your training... must be a drag.." He said. Ikari suddenly hugged closer to Bryce's leg and whispers something. It must have been rude because Bryce quickly speaks up, "Ikari please be nice I don't want to start a fight... It'd be a drag. Anyway we're new here and... yeah." He said nonchalantly.

"Ahh, must be something wrong with my hand, huh? No one seems to want to shake it. Oh well. Sorry about the temp. If you like you can lower it to about 60. That's plenty warm enough for us, hopefully cold enough for you? Regardless, we've got class at 4:45, so about two hours from now, you should come. There's a class for demons too, so Ikari should go to that. I don't mean to tell you what to do, just a suggestion, but if you miss class, you can't go on missions. That's what the real fun is. As for my training, it was fun, not a drag at all, especially the fighting. I loved every second of it, hell, I might just ask Rob to spar with me again tomorrow. It's great practice, you don't often have the opportunity to fight with someone so much better than you with no repercussions. The faster I can get even stronger, the better. You see, I'm gonna be the strongest someday. Even stronger than that monster Rob. Just you watch, I'll be the strongest Earth Mage in the whole world." Zac said, a fierce determination burning in his eyes. "I guess you're not the type to feel the same, but I can respect that. As for my Pitt, sure she's not the strongest, but she's my demon. We're family. You put up with your family's weaknesses, don't you? That's why I have to be the strongest, so I can protect my precious little demon. You're the only family I've got you know." Zac jibes. "Hey! I'm getting better at moving sand. Just the other day I filled a whole bucket all on my own. So there!" Pitt pouted, bragging about her strength. "Wow! Look at you!" Zac teases lovingly. "I can do that too! With the single scoop of a shovel!" Zac laughed happily causing Pitt to pout again, slapping the his side with her tiny arms. "That's not fair, you're a bajillion times bigger than me! That's perfectly impressive for someone my size." "Of course it is Pitt, I'm just teasing you." Zac chuckles. "You big meanie!" Pitt said, still pouting but the corners of her mouth turned up into a reluctant smile.

Pitt said, still pouting but the corners of her mouth turned up into a reluctant smile. ' I'm glad we don't fight like that Ikari's claws hurt' Bryce smiles and chuckles at the fighting pair in front of him.

'Maybe we could be friends... We wouldn't have to be alone anymore. I'm going to have to ask Ikari what she thinks...' "60 sounds alright to me and I don't think Ikari would mind. I guess I should start going to class since I'm here... What a drag..." Ikari looks at Pitt "60 would be fine" looking up at Bryce "You will go to class and I will go to this dæmon class." "As for power I guess I'm a decent Wind Mage I can fly and stuff." "Bryce you really need to stop underestimating yourself. Your a great Wind Mage especially for someone who's never had formal training." She says more softly but angrily "What with your father disowning you and what not..." "Let's not talk about that right now alright Ikari?" He leans over and picks her up and strokes her fur softly. She smiles slightly and cuddles into his chest. "So I guess we'll be attending class today then..."

"60 sounds alright to me and I don't think Ikari would mind. I guess I should start going to class since I'm here... What a drag..." Ikari looks at Pitt who stops slapping Zac just long enough to notice Ikari's attention. "60 would be fine". Pitt smiles politely at Ikari, then returns to slapping Zac. Looking up at Bryce, Ikari says, "You will go to class and I will go to this dæmon class."

"As for power I guess I'm a decent Wind Mage I can fly and stuff." Bryce says half-heartedly.

"Bryce you really need to stop underestimating yourself. Your a great Wind Mage especially for someone who's never had formal training." Ikari brags, then she said something else but much more quietly, too quietly for Zac to hear. It must have upset Bryce because he frowned then dodged the subject.

"Let's not talk about that right now, alright Ikari?" He leans over and picks her up and stroking her fur softly. She smiles slightly and cuddles into his chest. "So I guess we'll be attending class today then..."

"Yup, then if you don't mind, you guys can hit the thermostat and Pitt and I will resume our nap. See you in a few hours, it was nice to meet ya." Zac says, yawning. He turned over, facing away from Bryce and Ikari. Zac snuggled with Pitt and instantly fell back asleep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Waking up quickly with his alarm, Zac shuts it off, climbs out of bed and quickly dresses himself. Pulling Pitt out from under the covers and dropping her ever so gently into his hair, Zac grabbed his bag with all his supplies and headed out the door. Before he leaves, he quickly sticks his head back in the door and motions to Bryce. "Hey dude, it's time for class. See you there, Pitt and I will be heading over on the early side. Later." Zac says with a smile and a quick wave. Popping his head back in the door once more, "Unless you'd like to join me?" Zac asks.

Bryce turns the thermostat to 60 then stretches and sits down on the couch. "Well Ikari what do you think of our new roommates?"

She curls up in his lap. "I don't believe that either of them mean to bring harm to us."

"Will we be able to trust them do you think? Will we finally have friends?"

"It is possible... though the small one can be quite annoying."

"I like them Zac seems like someone who will do whatever it takes to succeed and Pitt... well... Pitt seems... fun."

"Either way we need to decide how much we will tell them and soon."

"I agree for now I'd prefer not tell them about my family.... It'd be a drag... Besides your my family now and that's all I need friends or no friends." He strokes her fur softly.

"We are family and as long as we have each other nothing will hurt us. Now we should rest up... I have a feeling that these 'classes' will not be the easiest."

"What a drag." He yawns and falls asleep.

"Hey dude, it's time for class. See you there, Pitt and I will be heading over on the early side. Later." Zac says with a smile and a quick wave. Popping his head back in the door once more, "Unless you'd like to join me?" Zac asks.

Waking up Bryce yawns and shakes Ikari awake. "We'll come with you. Not really sure where the room is anyway. Kinda a drag being in a new school and all." "Oh stop it Bryce you should be excited to go to class with new friends." Bryce lifts Ikari to his shoulder and follows Zac through the halls. 'Yeah new friends. Much less of a drag.'

"I guess you are done for the day, class at 4:45. Go rest up before then." That was a relief, he couldn't imagine what else their was to do. One class of normal highschool PE was enough, he didn't want to have to take another, but if it was necessary then he would do it. He started walking towards the school, soreness starting to catch up with him. So he half limped into his room and flopped down into his bed, Laius took his place on the nightstand. While Al lay there, fast asleep, his bird was thinking and reflecting. Eventually, he to succumbed to sleep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The pair woke up, as if on que, at 4:30. "Ah man, what time is it?" Alan yawned and stretched looking over at his clock; he felt reasurred that he had a 15 minute buffer which allowed him a quick snack. He grabbed his binder and an extra pen and pencil and burst out the room. He caught Zac and another keeper and his demon. "Hey guys!" He waved over to them. Their dorm was a bit further down the hall from his. Laius rustled is feathers a little at the sight of another demon. How many keepers were in this school?!

"We'll come with you. Not really sure where the room is anyway. Kinda a drag being in a new school and all." Bryce said. "Oh stop it Bryce you should be excited to go to class with new friends." Bryce lifts Ikari to his shoulder and follows Zac through the halls. "Alrighty then, right this way guys." Zac replies to Bryce as they begin walking down the hallway to class.

After a few brief moments of walking, Zac hears footsteps behind them. Turning around, Zac sees Alan and Laius. "Hey guys!" He waved over to them. Zac waves with a smile. "Hey Alan. How're you? I napped so good after that work out. Man was that great. You get some rest in?" He said.

Noticing that Alan and Bryce don't know each other, Zac introduces them. "Ahh, Alan, this is my new roomie Bryce. Bryce, this is a classmate of ours, Alan. Say, Alan, did you stick around to see how Lilly and Luke's fight turned out?" Zac asked his classmate. He was genuinely worried about how Lilly was doing.

"Hey Alan. How're you? I napped so good after that work out. Man was that great. You get some rest in?" he said.

"Yes, and did it feel good! I'm still a little sore, though, I haven't worked that hard in a while." He replied. To demonstrate this, he pumped his arms up and down in order to help loosen up.

"Ahh, Alan, this is my new roomie Bryce. Bryce, this is a classmate of ours, Alan. Say, Alan, did you stick around to see how Lilly and Luke's fight turned out?"

"I didn't see, I went down just a little after you, by the way, thickened air is a lot safer than sand to land in. However, I think the bird here did see the fight." Alan said. "Pleasure to meet you Bryce. Alan Lapchinski."

"Light bested shadow." Laius cryptically replied to Zac's question. The group eventually arrived at the classroom, and Alan held the door open for Bryce and Zac. He could hear Mr.Beckenfield say what he was going over, it was standard up until he heard they were hunting Jersey Devils. At this, he lit up, his parents settled down in New Jersey after they had moved from Poland. He knew the Leeds myth off the top of his head. However, he took a seat towards the front of the class. Patiently waiting for class to begin, Laius hovering off to the side.

"Ahh, Alan, this is my new roomie Bryce. Bryce, this is a classmate of ours, Alan. Say, Alan, did you stick around to see how Lilly and Luke's fight turned out?"

"Hey... Nice to meet you and stuff this is Ikari." He gestures to Ikari who is sitting in the crook of his neck. Ikari whispers into Zac's ear "Be nice we're trying to make friends remember?" Looking at Alan, "Greetings Alan it is nice to meet a friend of Zac's. Pardon Bryce... He isn't always friendly towards new people, but he's getting better... Right Bryce?" He nods. "Yeah... It's a drag."

Bryce zones out as the group continues toward the classroom and Alan and Zac start talking about the fights. 'Just got here and I already have to go to classes.. What a drag... At least I'll be early so I can sit by the window...'

“You want to know what we will be hunting, Miss Bedford? We are going to be hunting Jersey Devils.”

' What the hell? Jersey Devils? What are those? Why are we fighting them "Ikari do you know what Jersey Devils are?" "No Bryce that's why we have to attend classes were learning remember?" "Yeah, Yeah fine." Bryce crosses the room and opens one of the windows in the front corner of the room taking the desk next to it and begins staring out the window petting Ikari who has moved onto his desk. "I have a feeling this hunting will be a drag..."

Robert sat up and smiled as more students came in. “Ah! Welcome back Zachary! You feeling rested and ready to learn?” Once again, there was a new face. “Hello there stranger,” he said with a chuckle. “I’m Robert Bekenfield, or Mr. Bekenfield, the teacher. If it’s not to much to ask, I’m actually going to have you and Alan introduce yourselves in front of the class once we get started.”

“I’m his demon, in charge of teaching the demons in a separate classroom as well.” Robert pat Kira on head as she hopped onto his desk and spoke. Good thing he move the papers he had all organized.

“Anyone feeling the burn?” Robert laughed and got up to occupy himself until the other students arrived. “Did you see Zachary and I’s spar, Miss Bedford? I actually almost broke a sweat,” he said in a joking tone as he wrote ’Jersey Devil’ in his normal cursive script on the black board. “It’s to bad you couldn’t watch. You could have learned a thing or two about strategy.” He had sent her a look that was bound to send her over the edge in anger. He loved doing that to people that made it easy, like his older sister or some of his old teammates. “Say, did you learn anything Alan?”

“I don’t think it’s right to battle with them Robert. There is a reason you match them against other students during detention.” Kira curled up on the desk and let out a long sigh. “But I’m not going to bring it up again since we already spoke about this.”

“Your such a sour old pussy cat, Kira. I maybe a teacher, but I like to have fun too.”

“Yeah, that’s why you get in trouble with the Council so much.”

"Yes, and did it feel good! I'm still a little sore, though, I haven't worked that hard in a while." Alan replied to Zac's question. To demonstrate this, he pumped his arms up and down in order to help loosen up. "Yeah, feels good, huh?" Zac said.

"I didn't see, I went down just a little after you, by the way, thickened air is a lot safer than sand to land in. However, I think the bird here did see the fight." Alan said. "Pleasure to meet you Bryce. Alan Lapchinski." Alan said, introducing himself to Bryce.

"Light bested shadow." Laius cryptically replied to Zac's question. "Ahh... so Luke did win. I'll bet Lilly's bummed out." Zac sighed.

"Hey... Nice to meet you and stuff this is Ikari." Bryce said, introducing himself. He gestures to Ikari who is sitting in the crook of his neck. Looking at Alan, Ikari greets him, "Greetings Alan it is nice to meet a friend of Zac's. Pardon Bryce... He isn't always friendly towards new people, but he's getting better... Right Bryce?" He nods. "Yeah... It's a drag."

"Ahh, come on, don't knock sand diving till you try it." Zac jokes with Alan, patting him on the shoulder Laius wasn't perched on. "Sure, I coulda flew over to the courtyard or turned myself into a rock for the impact, but sand diving is one of my favorite activities. The only downside is getting the stuff out of your ears" Zac joked.

Finally, the group makes it to the classroom. Walking in to the classroom and sitting down, they make it just in time to hear Robert say, "Oh, I’m just going to had out some permission slips and talk about the creatures we will be encountering on the trip.” Robert leaned back in his chair and sighed. “Ah the wonders of having unlimited funding for these trips.” Robert then leaned forward and rested his chin on his hands. “You want to know what we will be hunting, Miss Bedford? We are going to be hunting Jersey Devils.

"Devils, eh Rob?" Zac asked. "Awesome, can't wait!" Zac exclaimed, "Hear that Pitt? We're hunting Jersey Devils." Zac gently prodded her awake. "Hmm, yeah, devils, hope they taste yummy." She says sleepily before konking back out.

Chuckling slightly, "Well Rob? Do Jersey Devils taste yummy?" Zac asked before sitting down at a seat next to Lilly's. He dropped his backpack on the floor and pulled out his notebook and his last remaining pencil.

If Lilly was deaf, she still would have been able tell, without looking, that people had entered the room. Robert had perked up, OZ’s face quickly went to his normal apathetic look, and she could smell them … yes, smell them. Two new faces were with one old face … Zac’s face. Lilly slumped further down in her chair and pulled her knee’s up to her chest, staring angrily at the wall next to her.

"Devils, eh Rob?" Zac asked. "Awesome, can't wait!" Zac exclaimed, "Hear that Pitt? We're hunting Jersey Devils." Zac gently prodded her awake. "Hmm, yeah, devils, hope they taste yummy."

Chuckling slightly, "Well Rob? Do Jersey Devils taste yummy?" Zac asked before sitting down at a seat next to Lilly's. He dropped his backpack with a slight thud.

“They really don’t,” OZ spoke up. “Master and I have had it before.”

“You see! I already know how to hunt them, Bekensnot! I should have to go on that field trip with all those weak excuses you call mages. Besides, it’s a waste of good meat to kill them all then burn the remains. I could eat for weeks on that stuff and not have to pay an extra dime!”

OZ looked down at Lilly, who’s eyes were trained on the wall. “Master … you got sick for three days after eating only a little bit,” he whispered. “Besides, it would be fun.”

Anyone feeling the burn?” Robert laughed and got up to occupy himself until the other students arrived. “Did you see Zachary and I’s spar, Miss Bedford? I actually almost broke a sweat,” he said in a joking tone as he wrote ’Jersey Devil’ in his normal cursive script on the black board. "Ahh come on Rob!" Zac jibed, "I at least did better than that, gimme some credit!" Zac laughed. “It’s too bad you couldn’t watch. You could have learned a thing or two about strategy.” He said, looking at her pointedly. “Say, did you learn anything Alan?” Robert asked Alan.

I don’t think it’s right to battle with them Robert. There is a reason you match them against other students during detention.” Kira curled up on the desk and let out a long sigh. She appeared to be upset about their battle. “But I’m not going to bring it up again since we already spoke about this.

Your such a sour old pussy cat, Kira. I maybe a teacher, but I like to have fun too.” Robert said, joking with his demon.

Yeah, that’s why you get in trouble with the Council so much.” Kira said pointedly. This conversation apparently happened often.

They really don’t,” OZ spoke up. He must have been talking about how Jersey Devils taste. “Master and I have had it before.

"Ahh, see that Pitt, they don't taste nice at all." Zac prodded Pitt who finally woke up and floated down in front of Zac, sitting on his desk.

You see! I already know how to hunt them, Bekensnot! I shouldn't have to go on that field trip with all those weak excuses you call mages. Besides, it’s a waste of good meat to kill them all then burn the remains. I could eat for weeks on that stuff and not have to pay an extra dime!” Lilly exploded, obviously feeling particularly vehement today due to her loss at the hands of Luke.

OZ looked down at Lilly, who’s eyes were trained on the wall. “Master … you got sick for three days after eating only a little bit,” he whispered. “Besides, it would be fun.” At that moment, a brilliant idea struck Zac. He open his notebook and started jotting down what he knew about Jersey Devils. Once he was finished, he ripped a corner off of his page and wrote a note on it.

It read, "A little bird told me you lost against Luke. I know how bad that feeling sucks, I lost to Rob today and it's eating me alive. That doesn't get us anywhere. Instead, I've got a proposition for you. Practice sparring with me. I'll teach you what I know about battle magic in return for you sparring 100% with me and not holding anything back. As you get stronger, I'll be able to fight harder and we both get better from it. What do you say?"

Zac folded the note up and palmed it. He let his hand drop and quietly cast a timed animation spell on the note before dropping it. The note turned into a little spider as it hit the floor. It scurried over to Lilly and climbed up the desk as inconspicuously as it could before laying flat in front of her on the desk. "Read me. Keep this a secret. ~Zac" The little folded square displayed, its greeting written on the front.

'What a drag... I can't even day dream with all this noise. Bryce looks around and finds the source of the disturbance. 'Who is that? She's kinda cute... Whoa what? I just start talking to people and suddenly I find a cute girl in my first class... What a drag...' He leans to Ikari and whispers "Umm... Ikari? I think I like that girl making all of the noise..." "Bryce really? You have no idea who she is, or what she's done. Plus, she seems dangerous." "Yeah, so what? She just seams like she's been alone for a long time like us." "Bryce I hope you know what your doing and please don't be stupid with this..." "You know me Ikari. I don't just rush into things. I'll be careful I don't want her to think I'm weird after all." "OK fine Bryce..."under her breath "This is gonna be such a drag..."

Bryce looks up and tries to catch Robert's attention. "Ummm Sir. Will I be allowed to attend this trip? And how does one go about hunting Jersey Devils?"

Robert had finished writing some more on the board when a voice broke through his thoughts. "Ummm Sir. Will I be allowed to attend this trip? And how does one go about hunting Jersey Devils?"

“Don’t worry. You will be aloud on this trip if we think you are ready, but everything else will be discussed in class.” Kids began to trickle in, one by one, moaning and groaning about how sore they were. It didn’t take long before everyone was there. “Wow! I’m glad you all showed! I know I wouldn’t have,” Robert said in a smooth tone, earning a glare from his feline companion. “Anyways, demon’s, if you wouldn’t mind following Kira into the next room?”

As the demon’s left, Robert began handing out papers. Mainly guidelines for the trip and permission slips they had to have signed by all their regular teachers. “We are going to New Jersey folks. Flying first class all the way there, staying for a day or two, and flying back. You see, on one of the papers I have given you, it describes the Jersey Devil and the myth that goes along with it. By now, you probably have figured out that we will be hunting them. Lately, there have been an outrageous number of attacks, which is very uncommon. They have asked me to bring you all down there and show you how to take care of the problem.”

One of the papers read:
“The most accepted origin of the story as far as New Jerseyians are concerned started with Mother Leeds and is as follows: It was said that Mother Leeds had 12 children and after giving birth to her 12th child she stated that if she had another it would be the Devil. In 1735, Mother Leeds was in labor on a stormy night. Gathered around her were her friends. Mother Leeds was supposedly a witch and the child's father was the Devil himself. The child was born normal, but then changed form. It changed from a normal baby to a creature with hooves, a horse's head, bat wings and a forked tail. It growled and screamed, then killed the midwife before flying up the chimney. It circled the villages and headed toward the pines. In 1740, a clergy exorcised the demon for 100 years and it wasn't seen again until 1890. Reportedly in 1778, Commodore Stephen Decatur visited the Hanover Iron Works in the Barrens to test cannonballs at a firing range, where he allegedly witnessed a strange, pale white creature winging overhead. Using cannon fire, Decatur purportedly punctured the wing membrane of the creature, which continued flying – apparently unfazed – to the amazement of onlookers. The Jersey Devil is considered a neutral creature.”

“Jersey Devils would be about X Rank creature. Easy enough. But you still must be completely prepared for anything that might happen. This is an official mission and I will not hesitate to either A. send you back here or B. feed you to the Jersey Devils.” Robert smiled and looked at every student. “And I’m not kidding. I suppose that you should know, spells should not be needed on this mission, other than what you already know. This will be more of a physical combat mission, since the Devil’s themselves are extremely easy to beat.”

'I'd better start training if I want to go on this mission. I wonder if Zac would be interested in sparing with me. Maybe I could spar with that girl... No, that'd be stupid you can't tell someone you like them by fighting them Ikari told me to be smart about this.' "Sir, I know you spared with Zac today,..."Bryce reaches back and scratches his head," "If you're not to tired would you be willing to spar with me after class? I want to see how my abilities are compared to the others, and this would be the quickest way to find out."

He smiles lightly 'I think Ikari would be proud of my choice. Much less of a drag than having to fight the entire class. He looks over at Zac to see how he would react to his idea of fighting Robert. Catching Bryce's eye Zac gives a thumbs up. 'Now if Robert just agrees this will work out perfectly and if I'm lucky she'll watch and I won't make a fool of myself.'

At his seat, Alan began to open up his binder and turned to a blank page. Before, he had scribbled down some ideas for spells from armor to golems, he intended to cast each and every one eventually, but they remained stuck on paper for the time being. He observed the class, sympathizing with the kids who groaned and moaned about soreness. Laius flew through the hole in the wall were the other demons went, a quick wave as his only sign of goodbye.

“Anyone feeling the burn?” Zac asked. How could anyone enjoy the feeling of crippling soreness. It's like masochism! He snapped out of his by Mr.Beckenfield, If it’s not to much to ask, I’m actually going to have you and Alan introduce yourselves in the front of the class once we get started."

"Ok" Alan simply replied. It wasn't the first time he had to introduce himself and he was already prepared to do so. He turned around and caught a hushed conversation between Lilly and Zac, Zac using a cool spell. It was a transformative one and he'd have to ask for it after class

"Say, did you learn anything Alan?" the teacher asked.

"Yes, I learned that mobility is key to a battle and deception and trickery is just as important as brute strength. Also, I learned a bit more about the limitations of elemental abilities." He replied while taking his paper. The myth on the paper was pretty standard, the Leeds myth was there and the Commodore's experience.

“Jersey Devils would be about X Rank creature. Easy enough. But you still must be completely prepared for anything that might happen. This is an official mission and I will not hesitate to either A. send you back here or B. feed you to the Jersey Devils.” Robert smiled and looked at every student. “And I’m not kidding. I suppose that you should know, spells should not be needed on this mission, other than what you already know. This will be more of a physical combat mission, since the Devil’s themselves are extremely easy to beat.” No spells, well, I guess armor would be considered a spell. He frowned, he figured a mission would be a good time to polish up his air armor spell(s). But no matter, he would make do with just physical combat if that was what was required.

Lilly opened a the notebook she had taken from OZ as he made his way through the wall. She had somewhat of a photographic memory, so she only had to write down key things to help her remember. Then another note flew it’s way over to her. She opened it carefully and read over the handwriting.

The note read: "Really? That how that went? I managed to observe your fight, aka watch you get your butt kicked, and still do decent against a teacher, who happens to be a council member. So alright then. You're on. We'll see just how far your spunk carries you Vatalini. My guess is that it's not very far. We'll start right after class then. I'll give you a few pointers and then we'll go a quick round. Sound good? Even better, after that, let's have a little wager. I bet I kill twice as many Devils as you on the trip, even after I've taught you my tricks. Interested?"

“You got yourself a deal! Don’t cry when you lose though,” Lilly said, smiling because she ‘knew’ she was going to win and a little because he used the name she wanted everyone to use. “It’s a deal,” she said holding out her hand.

Then a voice sounded through the classroom, that wasn’t Bekensnot’s. "If you're not to tired would you be willing to spar with me after class? I want to see how my abilities are compared to the others, and this would be the quickest way to find out." He was talking to Robert. She stopped, standing up, crumbled up the piece of paper and threw it as hard as she could at the boy’s head.

“What is up with all of you hot-head’s wanting to spar with him!” Lilly sat down and pulled her knee’s back up to her chest. “You all must be stupid!”

“What is up with all of you hot-head’s wanting to spar with him!” Lilly sat down and pulled her knee’s back up to her chest. “You all must be stupid!”

Bryce turns and looks at the source of the insult. Seeing who it was a slight blush rushes to his face. "I'm not stupid! I just think that sparing with the instructor will be a much faster way to determine my strength. Much less of a drag than having to fight all the other students." He raises his hand to the back of his head in his normal unsure stance. ' Well I rightly messed this up I don't even know her name and she thinks I'm stupid... But she is cute when she curls up like that... The blush deepens on his face and he quickly turns around facing the front again. "Well what do you say Sir.? It's your call."

---------------------------------------------------------------------

In the other room Ikari takes a spot near the front of the room by a window. 'I really hope Bryce isn't doing somthing stupid in there... He always gets himself in trouble when I'm not around.' She takes note of each demon as it enters the room. Kira lead the group into the room followed by the blue bird who's name she hadn't caught. The humanoid shadow 'Oz' came in after the bird followed by herself and lastly the lazily floating Pitt entered. 'Well hopefully this gets started soon I need to learn more so I can keep Bryce out of trouble.

Robert smiled at the boy who had asked to spar with him. “I find it wonderful that a student finds interest in battling me to see where they stand. I’ll think about it and let you know after class.” He let out a sigh as Lilly launched a paper wad at the boy’s head. “Miss Bedford, please refrain from the childish behavior today. Thank you. That reminds me. Class, we have two new additions to this class. If you,” he said, pointing at the boy, “and Alan would please stand, state your names, your area of magic and your demon’s names.” Robert finished passing out the papers and sat back down at his desk.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kira sat in the front, facing all the demons and smiled at the small class. “Alright. Today we will be learning more in depth things about the relationships between us and our Keeper’s. For instance, does anyone know what happens when a demon dies?” Kira didn’t call on anyone, just watched the hands, paws, wings, flippers, or whatever they raised go up. “Nothing happens. Of course your Keeper’s would feel horribly sad with the loss of their partner, but they would be assigned a new partner within a day. But if a Keeper dies, so does their demon. It’s sad, but that is the way it works.”

A small bear looking demon with wings and horns raised it’s paw up shyly and didn’t speak until Kira nodded at him. “This might sound bad, Ms. Kira, but what happens if a demon kills their Keeper?” The entire class seemed to look at the small demon like it was planning something. Kira knew it wasn’t, it was just a question.

“Yes, that is a wonderful question that I’m sure a lot of you had. You don’t actually die,” she said calmly. “But you are sent to a place where you will never die and be tortured for all eternity. It’s something no demon should have to go through, but it’s the law.”

Lilly just glared at the man and continued to scribble in her, well Oz’s, notebook. She stuffed the papers in the back of the notebook. OZ would see them and remind her to get them all signed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OZ had already taken out his spare notebook and was writing down everything Kira had been saying. “Nothing happens. Of course your Keeper’s would feel horribly sad with the loss of their partner, but they would be assigned a new partner within a day. But if a Keeper dies, so does their demon. It’s sad, but that is the way it works.”

A small bear looking demon with wings and horns raised it’s paw up shyly and didn’t speak until Kira nodded at him. “This might sound bad, Ms. Kira, but what happens if a demon kills their Keeper?” The entire class seemed to look at the small demon like it was planning something. Kira knew it wasn’t, it was just a question.

“Yes, that is a wonderful question that I’m sure a lot of you had. You don’t actually die,” she said calmly. “But you are sent to a place where you will never die and be tortured for all eternity. It’s something no demon should have to go through, but it’s the law.”

OZ nodded as he wrote. He had already known all that. Shadow’s were the guards and hosts of the place Keeper-murdering demons were sent. And since shadows were insanely unstable creatures, they could murder Keeper’s, humans, demons, anything and just get the death penalty. No eternal torture for them. That is, if they were caught. Most shadows were criminals but never got caught because, well, they were shadows. That’s why they hid. Most mages assume that any shadow is a criminal and destroy it on the spot.
