| Powers |
-Main Power Area: Plants
† Entrap: Causing growth in the natural foliage the target's feet are entwined.

† Vine whip: Ceil grows vines around his sword increasing it's attack range but removing it's bladed strike capabilities.

† Seed Bullet- From his sleeve Ceil launches high velocity plant seeds at his target. These seeds can be manipulated once planted. Currently only 2 of one plant type can be grown while not in Overgrow.

- Special Move:

† Overgrow: Charges all of Ceil's abilities and allows the seeds spread from seed bullet. The seeds can grow to any of 3 plant types.
1. Fly trap: The seeds grow to large Venus fly traps that capture and suffocate those captured while dealing acid damage.
2. Leachers: The roots of the plant grow upward searching for a target to latch onto. Once latched the plants begin drawing the targets magic energy out and restores some of Ceil's energy.
3: Spore Puffs: The puffs are harmless unless disturbed. Once prodded the puff releases a cloud of paralytic particles. The particles sink through any clothing excluding metal as it's not porous. Once on the skin the particles cause severe irritation limiting the movement of the targeted person. If excessively inhaled the particles will restrict the movement of the targets lungs causing them to suffocate.

Ceil is Immune to all of his plant based attacks and able to remove the affects caused by them almost instantly.

-Secondary Area: Light

† Sunburst: Raising his hands to the sky Ceil calls down rays of light that burn and blind his enemy and empowering his plants momentarily.

❝Welcome to my Life❞




| Personality |
Ceil doesn't talk much nor does he tend to trust people. After being practically disowned by his family he decided to learn magic for himself. If someone is looking to find Ceil he'd normally be found in the school's garden. When he arrived it was over run with weeds and he took it upon himself to fix it. Almost all of his free time is spent pruning and caring for the garden. Either that or training. He is determined to prove to his family that they were wrong. His goal is to someday defeat his father and prove that he shouldn't have been left behind.

❝Who I Am❞



Image
| History |Ceil was born to a family of famous, literally famous both in the magic world and human world, water mages. He and his sister were both in training to become water mages. It was quickly found that Ceil didn't have the aptitude to preform water magics. Iyana on the other hand was perfectly gifted she even got to go train with their grandfather while Ceil had to stay at the house, the shame of the family. He was basically left to himself while tormented at the same time. He spent his time as a child wandering through the gardens. He saw the differences that the plants had. The small ones being shaded by the taller ones grew even slower than normal. He began taking care of the smaller ones, parting the buds to let the light shine on the smaller plants. He felt so proud of himself as the small flowers started to grow. The longer he watched them the more quickly the seemed to grow. After 10 minutes of watching the flowers grow they were almost 5 feet tall. He saw something move behind the steams of the flowers. "Hey what's going on? Is someone there?"

He heard a soft chuckling from behind the steams. "No nothings happening here. I'm more interested in what your doing? Aren't you a water mage? How are you making the flowers grow?"

Ceil scowled. "No I'm not a water mage. Wouldn't even want to be one. And the flowers... I don't know I just really wanted to see the little ones grow... I guess something was listening to me and let them grow bigger."

The thing hiding behind the flowers chuckled again. "It wasn't something it was you. You made the flowers grow. That's why I'm here. I'm your demon."

Ceil jumped up and ran around the flowers. There stood a small boy with green hair and goat's horns. "Demon? You mean like a mages demon? I'm a mage?!? But I didn't think there was such a thing as plant mages?"

The boy chuckled again. "There have only ever been a few but you've been recognized by your care for these flowers."

Ceil jumped over and hugged the boy. "I can't wait to tell my family. This is going to change everything!" He scooped the boy up and ran to his father's study. "Dad, DAD! I have a demon!"

"A demon? You've finally learned water magic?!" He spun to look at his son feeling proud.

"No, I'm a Plant Mage! I learned it in the garden! I made the flowers grow and then he showed up!"

The boy jumped down out Ceil's arms and bowed to his father. "I'm Briar nice to meet you"

"A plant mage? And here I thought you were going to finally make me proud."

"But. I'm a mage, I can do stuff now... Why? Why can't you be happy for me?"

"Because you're a disgrace. You can't use Water magic. It's what our family is known for. You will receive no more help from us. Your going to leave and go to the Academy where you can no longer disgrace me."

Tears crept into the corners of Ceil's eyes. "Fine if you don't want me here then I'm leaving but I'm not going to go to your stupid Academy. I'm going to follow Iyana to the School." The tears fell down his face leaving a glowing green trail down his cheeks. "Let's go Briar there's nothing here for me any more." That afternoon the pair left and headed for the school where they would hopefully find Iyana.

1:00 A.M. Bryce's Apartment

Bryce woke with a start his face covered in a cold sweat. "Bryce what's wrong?!" Ikari jumped off of Bryce's chest shuffling up closer to his head looking over him with concern. Sitting up slowly Bryce began wiping the sweat from his forehead. "N-nothing Ikari it was just that dream again." Ikari's look of concern only grew hearing this news. "This isn't good this has been getting worse ever since you agreed to become the teacher. Are you sure you're going to be alright?" Shaking his head Bryce extracted himself from his bed walking to his bathroom. "I'm going to be fine Ikari. I have to be. Someone has to teach these kids about... About what can happen. What's happening."

Bryce finally reached the bathroom turning on the sink throwing water in his face to clear his head. "About that Bryce how are we going to prepare them for what might happen when the Council has forbid you from telling them about it?" Shaking his head Bryce sat down on the toilet lifting Ikari onto his lap. "That is just another thing that I'm not sure about here Ikari. I thought this was all going to be over after that night. At least until I was to old to do anything but watch. Less than 15 years after they woke up and we put them back to sleep it was thousands of years last time Ikari what can I say to any of them. 'Oh don't worry if we do it this time we'll never have to worry about it again!' 'You may have to kill one of your closest friends, but don't worry everything's going to be better afterwards' Ikari they're asking me to throw these kids into hell and cross my fingers. We both know I can't face them again or what happened to Ro- may happen to me." Bryce folded his hands holding his head over his lap. "Ikari why did this have to happen again it was supposed to all be over after what we did. Why can't the council work out a way to stop it without putting these kids on the line." Taking a few deep breaths Bryce was able to collect himself again. "I wish I'd followed Lilly when the council asked. We could have run off and left this off to someone else." "Bryce! You know we couldn't have done that! Lilly would never go with something the council asked we can only hope that she will come back soon I know her being here would calm you down." "But that's not the case Ikari. I don't know where Lilly went, but she isn't here and I don't know if she's going to come back. As long as the Council has its nose here she probably won't." Ikari nuzzled Bryce's hands lightly. "I'm sorry Bryce, but let's go back to bed tomorrow's the first day of the Club we need to be well rested."

Nodding Bryce stood lifting Ikari to his shoulder as he began walking back to his bed. As the pair laid down for a chance at a last few hours of sleep Bryce began talking. "I don't know what to do Ikari I just wish she was here." His voice fell lower as he returned to his restless sleep.


4:00 P.M. The Medieval Club Room

Bryce began pacing the space in front of his desk Ikari resting lazily on his desk. "What should I do Ikari? These kids how can I train them?" Ikari's ear lifted at this question as she remembered something. "Well it was his position Bryce... why not follow his example?" Stopping mid step so suddenly he almost drove himself to the floor. "Ikari! Why didn't you say that sooner I've been freaking out about this all day!." Ikari gave her quiet all knowing chuckle that she could do so well. "That's exactily why Bryce I may love you, but that doesn't mean I don't like watching you panic some times." Bryce flung the pencil he'd been twirling at Ikari. "That's mean Ikari." Bryce pouted a little bit before chuckling to himself. "I'm glad I have you Ikari. No matter how crazed and stressed I get you're always right there for me. Honestly the best thing that ever happened to me." More softly, so much so that Ikari could barley hear it her self. "I love you too Ikari."

"You'd damn well better after what you put me through now look sharp I think some of the kids are coming." Ikari snapped at him gruffly. Cringing at her sudden venom Bryce looked to the door to see his first true student. "Welcome to the Medieval Club! I'm glad you were able to join us." This greeting while hopefully making Bryce seem to be the cheerfully friendly teacher he wanted to be also acted as a test of sorts. A student that wasn't supposed to be here would be confused by the us given that a normal student couldn't see Ikari. Of course the test would only work on the first student through the door. After that he needed to be observent to make sure all of the students had demons or the Council may very much have his head.

Ceil Liadon


It'd been an eventful morning for Ceil he'd gotten up at 6 and run off to the garden he'd started the ear before to check on how it'd fared in his absence. To his mutual pleasure and disappointment the garden was overrun with weeds and all together in rough shape. "Well Briar it looks like we're going to have a lot of work to get this garden looking presentable" He smiled at his little demon who was struggling to pull a particularly deep rooted weed. "You're going to hurt yourself Briar.: His comment fell on deaf ears as slowly the weed began to give before loosing all strength causing Briar to fall over backwards. "I got it!" He cheered happily righting himself proudly holding the monstrosity out to Ceil grinning. "Good job." He was cut short by a loud buzzing coming fro his wrist looking he saw that it was already 7:30. "Crap we need to get to class Briar can't be late this year!" Briar nodded running to catch up to the already leaving Ceil. "W-wait up Ceil your so much bigger than me it's not fair!"

Classes passed slowly as they always do on the first day, but these weren't the classes Ceil was excited for he was waiting for the first meeting of the Medieval Club. Ceil took his time getting there not wanting to let show his growing excitement. Briar complained from his leg. "Ceil if we don't hurry we're going to be the last ones there I don't wanna be late." Ceil reached down picking up the little demon giving into his excitement. "Alright here we go!" Ceil took off down the hallway as fast as he could quickly arriving at the classroom where there was already 4 people waiting. Walking through the door he fell instantly back to his more quiet reserved self moving quickly past everyone and taking a seat near the front window. Briar quickly jumped down from the desk wandering over to the group. "Hi Hi everyone! It's nice to meet you all I'm Briar and that mopey one over there is my Keeper Ceil he's not good with people but he needs friends so please don't ignore him!" At this Ceil let his head fall to the desk resulting in a loud thunk. "Alright I think most everyone's here why don't we get started while the stragglers show up!" The teacher spoke up signaling the beginning of their first meeting.

Bryce Zypher


Students quickly began arriving after Kyouko taking care of the introductions before he could even mention it. With the arrival of Ceil and his little demon they had a majority. "Alright I think most everyone's here why don't we get started while the stragglers show up!" Ikari nodded from atop his desk jumping down beside him growing quickly until she stood even with his waist. "I'm glad all of you took care of your introductions now it's my turn. My name is Bryce Zypher you all can call me Bryce or Mr.Zypher I don't really mind either way. I will be your new Midievil Club instructor. This is my demon Ikari she's going to be in charge of teaching your demons a little bit more about their duties to you as Keepers." He looked around the room memorizing everyone's face. "We have a good mix of mages and I'm excited to be able to teach all of you!"

Remembering Kyouko's hurried search he felt he should make mention of the weapons rules. "Miss Kyouko I believe you were searching for this." Reaching into the air next to him with his left hand he retrieved the Naginta that had been given to him for safe keeping and handed it to her. "Regarding weapons I will hold onto them while we are not in class or on a "field trip"" He pulled out a bright green Katana next handing it to Ceil. "And I believe this one is yours. Now I'm only holding onto these until you learn a way to store them with yourself that won't bring attention from the regular students. You can either develop your own method or I can teach you mine once I'm sure you can hide it well enough I will return the weapon to you permanently."

Ikari stepped forward taking over the lecture. "Now as long as you are in this club you will follow its rules. If you are caught breaking them there will be punishment. For those of you who do not know the rules are: 1. No magic outside of the classroom unless supervised. 2.You can not tell the other students what we truly do in this class. 3.We are your instructors and you will do what we say. That being said we won't be unfair we wish only to see you grow as mages yourselves. I will be teaching your demons in a separate classroom while Bryce is teaching the Keepers practical magic and monster information. We meet Monday Wednesday and Fridays though Bryce and I will be available every day of the week for those that would like more specialized training." She stepped back giving Bryce control over the room again. "Alright so before we split onto our separate classrooms does anyone have any questions?"

As introductions went underway, another student barged in, a male this time. Well, at least they weren't going to be over-saturated with girls, Asami thought. Their instructor, apparently named Bryce Zephyr made his introduction and pulled out Kyouko's naginata and handed it over.

"Reasonable arrangement, I guess..." Asami remarked though Kyouko's attention was more on inspecting her weapon for any abnormalities than actually listening to her. "Hey, are you paying attention?" She asked and Kyouko only nodded. The newly arrived student also introduced himself...well, at least his demon did.

"Another oddity I have no familiarity with. I really agree with what he was saying about having a good mix now."

"Cute..." Kyouko muttered as she looked at the little green demon.

"Now as long as you are in this club you will follow its rules. If you are caught breaking them there will be punishment. For those of you who do not know the rules are:

1. No magic outside of the classroom unless supervised.

2.You can not tell the other students what we truly do in this class.

3.We are your instructors and you will do what we say. That being said we won't be unfair we wish only to see you grow as mages yourselves. I will be teaching your demons in a separate classroom while Bryce is teaching the Keepers practical magic and monster information.

We meet Monday Wednesday and Fridays though Bryce and I will be available every day of the week for those that would like more specialized training."


The other demon Ikari spoke up this time, revealing that demons and Keepers will hold their classes separately. "Well this might be a little of a problem..." Asami thought since she's always acted as Kyouko's mouthpiece when interacting with others. But then again, now that she's glancing over the others in the room...will they even talk to her? The first person who walked in after Kyouko did ignore them after all. Besides, whatever was on Kyouko's head is still a bit of a mystery, even to her so she's not exactly sure how well of a mouthpiece she makes. "But now that I'm thinking about it, it's not really that big of a problem after all..." She suddenly redacted, turning to Kyouko.

"I'll--be fine..." Kyouko replied, somewhat. "But--my magic...my task..."

"Hmm? Ah, yes. Excuse me?" Asami called out to Bryce and Ikari when they asked if anyone had other questions. "The first rule...does that mean she's also banned from tending to her regular obligations outside of this club?" Asami asked, pointing at Kyouko.

"She's an Onmyōji and per her tradition, she has to do all these rituals most of the time. Is she allowed to continue? Or must she abstain from it? Personally, I think she's fine since normal people are already exposed to it and they do not make much of it, seeing it more as a cultural norm. A magical invocation in the guise of a traditional ritual. She even conducts exorcisms." Asami presents their case.

"If I have to stop--then I will..." Kyouko voiced out though she looked a little dejected as she said it.

ImageOne minute there were just the six of them in the room but when Mizu turned back around there seemed to be others arriving.
The first girl to introduce herself was called Keira. Mizu quickly took a likening to her, she seems cheerful and her demon looked like a snowman, though it did seem a little... Flat...
Then the girl who had already been here, her demon introduced herself as Asami then her Keeper as Hanabusa Kyouko.
"Yuki-onna... On-myō-ji..." Mizu said slowly and awkwardly, trying to get the pronunciation right. The words did seem familiar to them, a Yuki-onna was a type of demon but they weren't entirely sure what an Onmyōji was. They would have to remember to ask about that later, yet the Onmyōji didn't seem very talkative, perhaps she was shy. Mizu just had to be extra friendly then!
Soon after two boys walked in, one of them obviously a demon though this was kind of easy to realise as the demon was quite small. Yet again the demon introduced himself and his Keeper.
Everyone seems to be shy, Mizu thought, I'll be sure to help them be more friendly.
"Hello! I'm Mizu," they cheered happily,"This is Pavati, he's my demon."
"Way to state the obvious," he muttered and began looking around the class, doing his best to ignore everyone else in the room.

"Now as long as you are in this club you will follow its rules. If you are caught breaking them there will be punishment. For those of you who do not know the rules are:
1. No magic outside of the classroom unless supervised.
2.You can not tell the other students what we truly do in this class.
3.We are your instructors and you will do what we say. That being said we won't be unfair we wish only to see you grow as mages yourselves. I will be teaching your demons in a separate classroom while Bryce is teaching the Keepers practical magic and monster information.
We meet Monday Wednesday and Fridays though Bryce and I will be available every day of the week for those that would like more specialized training." The first males demon spoke.
"Oooohhhh!" Mizu exclaimed,"he's our instructor!"
"No shit Sherlock," Pavati hissed in their ear, returning to sort of hovering by their Keeper's shoulder.
"Language," they muttered,"You're the one being rude now." Mizu pouted slightly.
Bryce... Hmm... Mizu was sure they had heard of this person before. He did seem quite familiar, perhaps from a book or something. Maybe he was a famous writer. No, Mizu should have remembered that.
She finally chose a seat, almost in the exact middle of the class room, though instead of sitting on the chair they jumped out onto the desk, sort of crouching. They were leaning on their toes, quite unbalanced and Pavati was tempted to give them a slight push off.
"Alright so before we split onto our separate classrooms does anyone have any questions?"
"OH! ME!" Mizu's hand shot into the air and they waved it around a bit but Asami, Hanabusa Kyouko's demon, got there first.
"The first rule...does that mean she's also banned from tending to her regular obligations outside of this club?" Asami asked, "She's an Onmyōji and per her tradition, she has to do all these rituals most of the time. Is she allowed to continue? Or must she abstain from it? Personally, I think she's fine since normal people are already exposed to it and they do not make much of it, seeing it more as a cultural norm. A magical invocation in the guise of a traditional ritual. She even conducts exorcisms." She continued.
Mizu continued waving their hand in their air a bit before jumping to their feet, pushing the table back slightly,"Who are you?"
"What they mean is it possible they know you from anywhere?" Pavati said for them, sort of like a translator, knowing that they might not get the answer they wanted with the previous question.

Cathal Elmslie


Cathal leaned against a rock as his smaller demon leaped around the open field. He hadn't attended his morning classes so he could train for what was bound to come. Even if this man refused to fight, Cathal wouldn't hold back. Bella ceased for a moment to approach her Keeper with worried look on her face. What she heard from the Demon's she would come across is that this Bryce guy was a tough guy. He was a B rank after all. "Cathal! I'm hungry! Let's just go home and forget this guy exists!" Bella hovered above Cathal, playing with his already messy hair.

"You know I can't to the Bells. If this guy is so all powerful, he could have saved Robert and we wouldn't be here." Cathal reached up and grabbed Bella's waist as she turned into a small, light pink cat. It was getting time to go to the club room. "It's probably already started." Cathal strapped his bag onto his back and put Bella on his head. It was time to make this teacher pay.

"Can I have a snack? Watching you train made me hungry." Cathal sighed and pulled out a bag of snacks and handed them to Bella. At this point, she turned back into her human for to grab them, forgetting that she was sitting safely on Cathal's head. It wasn't a problem for Cathal to carry her, but Bella was having a hard time staying on with her sudden size adjustment.



The pair stood in front of the door that lead to the classroom. There was chatter going on inside, making Cathal's stomach twist. Maybe he should have gotten their early to challenge Bryce before there was anyone. It was to late for that now. A little voice inside his head spoke up. It was saying over and over that this is what Cathal had been waiting for. Revenge was just a few feet in front of him and he was too scared to reach out and take it. But his mother's words echoed through out too. He was sent there to learn. Not fight.

"No ... No turning back."

Cathal grabbed the doorknob, freezing it. Something that often happened when his emotions weren't in check. The door pushed open and the air became colder. He stepped into the classroom, a deep glare set on his face and Bella trailing behind him with a nervous grin. The man standing before him looked arrogant to Cathal, full of pride and all-knowing in his abilities. Exactly what a murderer would look like. Cathal's frown twisted into a wicked grin as he approached the man before him, grabbing his collar and twisting it around his fists.

"Bryce Zypher," Cathal paused, the air becoming colder and the floor beneath him beginning to freeze over. "I am Cathal ... son of Robert. And today, you die." Bella stayed in the back of the classroom, no more of a nervous grin but a scared look. She had never seen Cathal like this before. "I challenge you to a dual! To the death!" Cathal dropped his hands and turned back towards the door. "Meet me in the field where you've battled before. I'll be waiting." Cathal walked back out the door without hesitation. Though it was as if he went though a force field, the cold ceased and his grim attitude vanished.

"That was scary, Cathal!" Bella said, no longer scared and happily munching away. The Ice Mage could feel his heart about to beat out of his chest.

"Tell me about it." He made his way back through the school and into the forest.

Bryce was quite pleased with how his first class was going so far he couldn't help but chuckle as Ikari began telling the students the rules she sounded so much like Kira during their first class all that time ago. He'd finished up by asking his students if they had any questions. Before he could look around Asami spoke up on Kyouko's behalf. "Hmm? Ah, yes. Excuse me? The first rule...does that mean she's also banned from tending to her regular obligations outside of this club? She's an Onmyōji and per her tradition, she has to do all these rituals most of the time. Is she allowed to continue? Or must she abstain from it? Personally, I think she's fine since normal people are already exposed to it and they do not make much of it, seeing it more as a cultural norm. A magical invocation in the guise of a traditional ritual. She even conducts exorcisms."

Bryce thought for a moment before replying. "I think the rituals will be fine, but I'd prefer if at all possible no exorcisms. I don't want her being tired for her classes and as I understand they can be quite draining." Looking around again he noticed another student with a question. This time it was Mizu.

She must have been really excited about the question as she jumped off of the top of the desk she'd been sitting atop. "Who are you?" Before Bryce could dodge the question saying "I'm your teacher I just told you." her demon spoke up clarifying the question so he couldn't get out of it. "What they mean is it possible they know you from anywhere?"

Bryce thought carefully before beginning to reply. Just as he was about to someone burst into the room bringing quite literally a chill over the room. The boy didn't stop in the doorway he walked right up to Bryce taking his shirt in a chilled fist. "Bryce Zypher, I am Cathal... son of Robert. And today you die. I challenge you to a dual! To the death!" He dropped his hold on Bryce returning to the door saying, Meet me in the field where you've battled before. I'll be waiting." With that he left the room taking the unnatural chill with him.

Bryce looked to Ikari who nodded stiffly. "Well students it seems I have something to which I need to attend if you'd all follow me then." He began leading the students out to the forest. "This isn't going to be a sparring match so once we get there you all need to stand to the back edge of the clearing I don't want any of you getting hurt." He ignored the questions as he continued leading the students and their demons to the clearing. "Ikari you stay back too he challenged me I'm not going to hold back on him."

After a few minutes the group arrived at the clearing. "Alright students stay here and observe. This is why you should always think before issuing a challenge." Bryce stepped forward to the center of the clearing where Cathal was waiting. "Hello Cathal. I'm guessing there is nothing I could say to make you rescind this challenge is there?" Cathal offered him no response instead moving into a fighting stance. Bryce nodded his acceptance reaching into the air next to him pulling out his Scythe then taking a stance himself.

"You issued the challenge so I'll give you the first move. Better make it count though, it's the only one you're going to get." Bryce's voice stayed level almost sounding sad at the prospect of having to fight this kid. The sky began to grow dark clouding over as silence grew in the clearing. Cathal took his chance creating his ice blades charging at Bryce slashing with one arm at his stomach the other at his throat. Bryce simply lifted his scythe both blades strongly impacting the handle of the scythe. Bryce lifted his free hand to the sky. The air grew still Bryce's and Cathal's hair began standing as if statically charged. An instant later a lightning bold crashed down from the sky impacting Bryce's Scythe rushing through Cathal's blades throwing him back dissolving them instantly. Cathal rolled to a stop 30 feet back. Before he had a chance to recover and counter he was impacted from the side by a wall of air throwing him to the ground. Bryce walked up to him raising his Scythe as he went. Cathal wasn't quite finished yet freezing the ground in front of him he pushed off sliding out of range of the strike quickly jumping to his feet. "You asked for this Cathal." Bryce swung his scythe opening a wind tunnel to Cathal the sonic charge of the wind stunned Cathal. Jumping into it Bryce flew at him faster than most eyes could follow. Bryce raised his scythe preparing to finish Cathal as soon as he reached him.

Lily Bedford

Three Days Earlier
Lilly had woken up with a jolt, like always, dressed in odd clothes covered in blood. By now, she didn't even question it. Her demon Oz appeared next to her bed, holding spare clothes and a towel. The only question Lily ever had was why couldn't she ever remember where she had been and why she woke up covered in blood every time. Even Oz said that he wouldn't be able to find her. That is until the moment she would regain consciousness. Lily had rid herself of Liam long ago, so thee was no way it was him. The Shadow Mage always thought she was running from the Council, but what if she was really doing their bidding? The only people strong enough to pull off what was happening to her was a Council Member.

"Three months, Master." Oz stated lightly. "It's time to go back."

"Where's Bryce now?"

"I've been tracking him and it appears that he has taken up Robert's old position. I'm sure he'll be very happy to see you again." Lily nodded, letting out a sigh. It had been three months since the last time she saw Bryce. He had to have been getting tired of her constant disappearing.

Lily quickly showered and dressed, ready to leave the hotel.


Present Day
Lily and Oz weren't much further away from the school when a sudden burst of magical energy made Lily falter mid-air. She would know such an aura from miles away, but why was he going all out? It was then that the Shadow Mage felt a much smaller energy. She looked to Oz with a worried look in her eyes, there was no way he was using this much energy on a student. Lily flew top speed towards the opening in the forest, to see what was going on. It was exactly what she had thought. She was lucky to have made it when she did, Bryce was about to murder the poor kid.

Lily tucked in her wings, dropping in between the two, bracing to take all the impact. With a swift round house, Lily sent Bryce in the opposite direction.

"You idiot! What kind of teacher are you!" Lily rushed to the boy behind her, checking to see if he was okay. "Kid, are you alright? Here, I'll take you to the nurse." Lily helped the boy stand, putting his arm around her shoulders for support. "The rest of you head back to the classroom! That's an order!" Oz slowly moved to Bryce, his usual blank expression on his face.

"We're home sir. Nice to see you again."

"What were you thinking? You must have picked a fight with him. He's -B Rank, you don't mess with him," Lily said, making her way to the infirmary.

ImageWithout warning the door was flung open and the temperature dropped. By the time Mizu looked up the male who had just entered had grabbed the instructor by the collar. If they tried hard enough they could see their breath come out looking like clouds of smoke.
"Bryce Zypher. I am Cathal ... son of Robert. And today, you die," he said, "I challenge you to a dual! To the death! Meet me in the field where you've battled before. I'll be waiting."
No sooner had he entered he left, leaving a blanket of ice covering the ground near him.
"It sounds very fun!" Mizu chirped walking up to where Cathal the son of Robert stood, looking down at the icy ground.
They did wonder who this Robert was but as of now Mizu was more intrigued by the ice. They stepped onto it, sliding a bit before falling down into a sitting position.
"Well students it seems I have something to which I need to attend if you'd all follow me then."
Mizu looked up happily, they had never seen two Mages fight before and the mere thought made them giggle slightly as they got up, using Pavati as a sort of rope much to his distaste.
"This isn't going to be a sparring match so once we get there you all need to stand to the back edge of the clearing I don't want any of you getting hurt."
They half skated from the class room, close on Bryce's trail. Soon enough they neared a forest heading in, then coming to a clearing.
"Alright students stay here and observe. This is why you should always think before issuing a challenge."
"Okie dokie!" Mizu smiled, glancing over to Cathal.
They watched the two spar, intrigued by the whole thing. Pavati wasn't too interested, not until Cathal was seconds away from his end.
To his disappointment and Mizu's a female appeared practically from thin air, dropping down and kicking the new instructor away.
"Oh well... That was... Disappointing," Pavati muttered, annoyance slipping into his tone.
Mizu sighed,"Isn't that cheating?"
The woman seemed pretty angry with Bryce for some reason as she began yelling at him before helping Cathal up and turning to the others watching.
"The rest of you head back to the classroom! That's an order!"
"Aww but you can't te-"
"Mizu. Let's. Go," Pavati snapped, knowing this woman wasn't to be messed with,"There's nothing else to do anyway."
Mizu pouted slightly, turning away from the clearing, not happy with the way things turned out.

"I think the rituals will be fine, but I'd prefer if at all possible no exorcisms. I don't want her being tired for her classes and as I understand they can be quite draining."

Their instructor finally told them his verdict on Asami's question. Ritual rites were still allowed for them but they were forbidden from exorcisms. "Okay..." Kyouko managed as their session went underway. As their first lecture was about to begin, Asami felt a sudden change in their atmosphere. Sniffing the air around, she glanced just in time to see another boy enter the room; harbinger of the cold aura.

"Bryce Zypher. I am Cathal ... son of Robert. And today, you die. I challenge you to a dual! To the death! Meet me in the field where you've battled before. I'll be waiting."

He seemed to have a beef with their instructor though what he said was a rather intriguing one. "Ara? A duel to the death? This should be interesting. First time I'll see how measly humans handle my territory." Asami remarked, referring to her own element. They were instructed to follow, to witness their battle. "No problem. Kyouko, this should be an eye-opener for you." When Asami looked at her though, she seemed a little uneasy. "Can't forget the past eh?"

A clearing outside the premises. It's nothing if not exposed and Asami thought if their instructors are allowed to violate their own rules. They soon started, with their instructor wielding a scythe of all things. His young opponent opted for blades instead.

"Wind and Ice...The thing about wind is that he won't find any area where he's at a disadvantage, I guess." Asami glanced down at Kyouko who was intently watching the battle. Noticing the dark sky, a lightning bolt struck down the Ice mage. "Ah! That could have been fatal--" Asami was about to yell out when Kyouko stopped her.

"They did say a duel to the death..."

"But this isn't a duel Kyouko. More of a one-sided killing if nothing else."

As their instructor was about to deliver the finishing blow, a woman interfered, bringing her demon in tow. She got in the way of Bryce and his challenger, immediately ending their battle. She yelled at them to return to their classrooms, with the serpentine demon Pavati complaining about the outcome.

"So what have you picked up from all this?" Asami asked as they made their way back. Kyouko shrugged.

"Western magic is...rather straightforward." She replied, Asami knowing full well what she meant.

Ceil Liadon


Ceil was quite in shock the standard introduction to the class as interrupted not by questions the teacher had asked for those but by a tall boy who walked up taking the teachers shirt by the collar. Then challenged him to a duel not only a duel but to the death. Ceil was expecting the teacher to refuse as the boy was storming out, but he accepted telling all the students to follow. Ceil followed behind the rest of the students Briar sitting atop his head as they walked out at a brisk pace. Upon reaching the clearing Bryce told the students to stay at the edge and watch so Ceil jumped up into a tree to get a better view.

The fight if you could call it that didn't last long. Cathal charged with ice blades hitting Bryce's scythe. Suddenly a lightning bolt crashed down knocking Cathal back Bryce charged but Cathal slid away with a quick burst of magic the Bryce ripped open a whirlwind disappearing for what would be the killing blow. Before he could land it something crashed down throwing Bryce into a tree across the clearing yelling at him before telling the students go go back to their classroom. Not wanting to anger the woman who just face kicked their teacher into a tree he jumped down with Briar quickly walking his way back to the classroom waiting for the teacher or anyone else who would tell them it's ok to leave.

Bryce Zypher


Closing in to end this duel Bryce was readying his scythe for the final blow when something appeared in front of him for all he could tell kicking him out of the whirlwind through a tree. Bryce we stunned there was no way Cathal could have gotten a kick like that off from the position he was in. As he unburried himself from the tree a voice spoke to him. "We're home sir. Nice to see you again." Pushing the trunk of the tree off of his chest he managed to cough a reply. "Oh OZ nice to hear you too I take it Lilly was the one who sent me through the tree then." Taking a deep breath Bryce flooded his lungs so he could breath regularly again. "Nice to have you home any chance you know anything about where she was this time?" Looking around Bryce saw the students were already gone headed back to the classroom if he'd heard Lilly right through the sound of a tree falling on him.

Bryce started to walk doubling over in pain at the first step. "Ribs, I think my right arm, and definitely my nose. Well Lilly's certainly not lost out on any of her abilities. He groaned deciding to head to the nurse to let her patch him up. Her healing magic was finally stronger than his. "Ikari will you go to the classroom and tell the kids we're done for the day if they have any questions tell them to find me tomorrow I'll be in our office." "I'd rather stay with you Bryce it's been a long time since you've been beat up like this." Bryce nodded. "I know but I've lived through worse. Please go take care of the students." She nodded gruffly running off to the classroom.

Bryce began limping to the school casting an illusion spell so he appeared to be walking normally without the growing amount of blood. 'I'm going to have to talk to Lilly about this no doubt she plans on killing me next time she sees me.' It took 30 minutes or so for him to gimp his way up to the nurse. She saw through his illusion instantly. "What the hell happened to you!? I haven't seen you like this since your 3rd mission. I told Robert you weren't ready for Chimara." Her voice dropped as she realized what she's said. "I-I'm sorry I know what you went through that night Bryce." "No, no it's fine not talking about him isn't going to change what happened. The least we can do is remember who he was and what he did for all of us." The nurse nodded guiding him to an empty bed that happened to be right across from Cathal's where Lilly was also sitting. Choosing to let it lay Bryce ignored them for the moment. "So do you think you can patch me up? I could have tried but you're a lot better at this healing stuff than I am.

The Classroom

Ikari walked into the classroom seeing that all the students had made it back up. "I'm glad you're all here." She stepped in front of the head desk. "Class is finished for the day if any of you have questions." Seeing a few hands shoot up. "I will NOT be answering them today. Bryce and I will be here tomorrow for anyone who has questions. So that will be it for today you are all dismissed." With Ikari walked out of the room heading as quickly as she could to the infirmary.

Once she got there she saw Lilly sitting with Cathal and Bryce being frantically looked over by the nurse. "Broken ribs, your right arm is almost shattered, your nose, and your left leg has a fracture. What exactly happened to you Bryce?!" Ikari looked over at Lilly before walking to Bryce's side. "Well he was challenged to a duel by that young man over there. As Bryce was about to... end it Lilly jumped in and sent Bryce through a tree." Ikari shrunk down quickly jumping onto the bed curling up in the crook of Bryce's neck licking his cheek softly. "He's going to be alright though isn't he?"

"I will NOT be answering them today. Bryce and I will be here tomorrow for anyone who has questions. So that will be it for today you are all dismissed."

The demon Ikari was the one who faced the class and relayed their dismissal, seeing that their instructor was probably in no shape to meet with them. As Kyouko packed up, she realized that she still had her weapon, the instructor apparently forgetting about it. So she decided to just bring it back home. She wrapped it up in the cloth cover it came in, taking care to completely conceal the blade before placing it into its sleeve. Fortunately, the pole wasn't very long. However, she suddenly realized that it might spark some issue if she was seen walking around with it the next day.

"Rather dull for a first day, if you were to ask me." Asami yawned as she drifted by Kyouko's side, watching her retainer pack up yet not even bothering to offer a hand. "You going? Don't want to hang out with any of your mates here?"

Kyouko glanced around the other students. Were they the same as the other people in her normal class? Or do they prefer doing things at their own pace, generally being by themselves. In other words, someone like her.

"I-I need to--hide this." Kyouko muttered before walking out of the room, taking the crudely concealed weapon with her.

"Just leave it here in the room." Asami called out, looking around the room for a suitable place to stow it. She found one, a little above the towering bookshelves. With the chore done, they wondered what they should do next. Should they just go home and turn in for the day?

"Asami...want to go?" Kyouko nudged her spirit, who was still busy checking her reflection on the polished wooden board.

"Wait just a minute--I'm still doing my hair."

Vergil was the second to last person to enter the classroom, he entered as silently as he could to avoid disrupting whatever was going on, no sense in branding himself a troublemaker this early, it would ruin too much opportunity for fun. He walked in headphones on as the teacher was answering a few questions from his class mates. Melody poked her head out of Vergil's guitar case and yawned as a rather stern and serious looking girls demon was asking questions, Vergil didn't pay much attention and began surverying his classmates, so far the class room was filled with some rather attractive ladies, is eyes drawn back to the stern looking girl, she was rather quiet. [This might be a challenge but there is something about her I think I can get behind] he thought to himself as he playfully flicked Melody's head to see if she really was awake. Melody stuck her tongue out at Vergil and made a shush motion to him and pointed at speaking girl, she was asking their teacher who he was, Vergil found the question silly, their teacher was Bryce, and that is all they needed to know.

Before Bryce could answer the door flew open and some idiot kid challenged him to a duel saying he killed his father, Bryce instructed that they all follow to which Vergil shrugged and signed [Well at least this might be interesting.] to Melody before they left and followed him to the field Vergil payed half attention as they were instructed to hang back, he just shrugged. He watched the fight, if it could be called that, closely, in all reality Bryce was just beating on the kid but before he could kill him some chick came flying in and kicked him off into the distance. The woman's demon yelled at them to get back to the class room Vergil laughed quietly as he made his way back with the other students. After being told that their teacher was to finish the introduction and questioning the next day Vergil decided he would try to chat with some of his new classmates.

Most of his new classmates seemed outgoing and chipper, Vergil then concluded he had to talk with one of the quiet ones. The stern looking girl from before spoke quietly with her demon before exiting quickly. Vergil took Melody from the guitar case and plopped her on his shoulder before following swiftly behind, exiting the room in time to hear something interesting "I-I need to--hide this." the girl said presumably to her demon. The girl carefully wrapped up an object Vergil couldn't see and quickly hid it on top of a bookshelf before asking her demon if they were ready to go. Vergil chose this moment to jump out and "say something". [Hi! I'm Vergil, hell of a class today huh? Seriously challenging the teach to a death match. Choice move on that kids part, the fight didn't even last long enough to learn anything from.] Vergil signed, "Hi! I'm Vergil, hell of a class today huh? Seriously challenging the teach to a death match. Choice move on that kids part, the fight didn't even last long enough to learn anything from." Melody said speaking for Vergil so that the young lady standing before them could understand. "Oh! And I'm Melody, Vergil is my bestest buddy, even if he is a bit of a dummy head sometimes. Anywho even though he didn't ask I'm sure he's dying to know, so I'll ask for him, what are ya hiding up there?" In reaction to her question Vergil picked Melody up by the scruff of her neck, pulling her up to his face and gave her a stern look. As he put her back on his shoulder he started signing again, [Melody you know better than to ask that, we hardly know her and although I am curious she is allowed her secrets and we mustn't pressure her, you know I just wanted to get more acquainted with this pretty girl, you didn't need to bug her like that, wait why are you translating this, this lecture is just for you ya know.] He then turned back to the girl, [Sorry about that she can be handful, say didn't I see you around school last year? You seem familiar, I wasn't in club though, didn't wanna, but I don't know might be fun so I decided to give it a shot this year. Oh goodness where are my manors, and what might your name be?] Just like before Melody spoke for Vergil allowing all around, well everyone who was aware of her existence, to hear Vergil's words. "Melody you know better than to ask that, we hardly know her and although I am curious she is allowed her secrets and we mustn't pressure her, you know I just wanted to get more aquainted with this pretty girl, you didn't need to bug her like that, wait why are you translating this, this lecture is just for you ya know. Sorry about that she can be handful, say didn't I see you around school last year? You seem familiar, I wasn't in club though, didn't wanna, but I don't know might be fun so I decided to give it a shot this year. Oh goodness where are my manors, and what might your name be?" Vergil punctuated his final sentence with his famous smile, bringing his lengthy introduction to a close.
