[url=XXX]Your Character's Theme Song[/url]



Image
Title – Dragon Exorcist
Faction - Seramel
Role - ♘Knight♞

Race –half draconian
Gender - Female



Appearance

Ryuu wears black pants that have slash marks all over them and a red tube top. Her hair and eyes are what always give her away as they are colored an extremely bright red. She usually keeps them in two braids but is sometimes seen with her hair down. Ryuu is rather tall for a woman (6'2) of her age with a heavily scarred body and hourglass body. She has a Dragon tattoo that curls around her left arm. There have been times where people swore they saw her tattoo move but are too afraid to ask her if it does. An X-shaped scar sits below her right eye , as well as a claw mark starting just below the shoulder and ending at her abdomen from a fight in her younger years.
Gardenian Appearance( Anime Only!)
Image Ryuu when not acting as a knight tends to wear extravagant kimonos. That is custom made for her to accommodate her hourglass figure as well as to showcase her figure. If Ryuu doesn’t wear a kimono she will most likely be wearing baggy pants and a tight red shirt with an unknown logo on the front. Even when not in combat Ryuu always carries some kind of weapon with her, for when she acts as a Gardenian, Ryuu carries a single katana strapped to her side.

Personality - It’s very hard for her to open up to people or too trust someone she just met. She has a rather short temper but manages to keep it under control, sometimes. Ryuu tends to keep to herself mainly due to the fact she hates asking for help. It’s very rare for her to smile and is most often seen with a sad or blank expression.

In the rare instance she does get upset its best not to be the cause of her anger. Ryuu is like a demon when angered but it is rare for her to lose control, only those she considers good friends will ever open up this side of her personality. Ryuu like some knights loves to fight, she lives for it but hates a weak opponent and will often challenge strong opponents whether they are of her own people or not to either have fun or show she is indeed a very strong individual. Ryuu is indeed a very clever and flexible woman; known for her spot on observations of the enemy and keeping her cool in many situations.

Ryuu die to her past life even though she has no recollection of it despises royalty or noble blood as she calls them, and in this case the king and queen that she follows. She doesn’t mind showing this hate towards them especially if she knows they failed in something. Ryuu has a strong sense of honor as a swordsman, she hates t when she must retreat or is forced to show any kind of weakness especially if the cause of this is an order from the king or queen.


Weapon(s) – a sword that is long as she is tall, with a pure black blade that houses a dim light within its black confines. The words “Burn down the heavens and shroud the land in darkness” are inscribed along the blade in white letters.along with three other swords strapped to her side that she usually uses in battle. Chomesku on the other hand is hidden within a seal on her palm that acts as a storage dimension to hold Chomesku when not in use but when she is it tends to be in the most dire of situation.
Fighting Style - Ryuu possesses great mastery in swordsmanship and is very skilled in it. Her offensive capabilities mainly come from her swordplay, which enables her to effectively utilize most if not any weapon handed to her, though her preferred choice being the sword. She also has great skill in utilizing the reverse-grip of swordsmanship as well as the normal grip. And is even capable of employing her swords effectively using her feet, by wielding their hilts between her hallux and second toe. Her preferred style is the three-sword-style that most swordsmen don’t practice as some think it difficult to use three swords at the same time. Holding two swords in her hand and one in her mouth, it is rather difficult to speak considering the hilt is in her mouth.

The difficulty of this ability is that it requires her to use smaller swords, and they tend to break soon after using them. Nor can they take much weight like Chomesku. Her swords are simple katanas with an unadorned hilt, but with a sharp blade that can cut through most substances but the human body or steel. If she does try to cut something that normally can’t be cut by a sword, her katanas will break soon after often forcing her to use Chomesku. Ryuu tends to go straight when handling three swords due to the fact that she can’t move the third sword and is restricted in movement for the other two in her hands.

Despite favoring the use of her various weapons, Ryuu has proven herself to be a skilled hand-to-hand combatant. She is also able to mix hand to hand combat with her swordsmanship while in the midst of battle along with her extremely sharp reflexes, and a high degree agility and speed this makes her a very difficult opponent if underestimated. She mainly focuses in the area of judo; if she can’t take her opponent down with her blade then she will just have to take him out by other means. Ryuu has shown in her old life to have been able to bring down men three times her size though it is not certain this strength carried on to her life as a knight in SoulChess.

--Abilities--
(Role Abilities)
Sense presence - Can feel the spiritual presences of the other "pieces".
Knight's Crest - Like all knights Ryuu is able to summon a beast to ride and scout for enemies. Her beast is that of a large black dragon that is indeed the tattoo on her left arm known as NightFire. With his large serpentine body NightFire does not have wings but prefers to travel on foot and is incredibly fast despite his huge body, but this doesn’t mean he can’t fly; he can fly but is not as fast as he would be if he was to run. NightFire can go to speeds of about sixty miles per hour to forty miles per hour is he hasn’t already depleted his energy before going for a run or flying.
Natural Abilities
1) Dragon Fire
Description: This ability as it says involves dragon fire of the hottest kind; black fire being the kind that is nearly impossible. It sprouts from Chomesku as a wave of flame from a simple swing of her sword. But when it is contained within Chomesku’s blade she tends to burn those who are not her master and because of the heat that radiates from Chomesku it allows her to cut through even steel. Once the dragon fire leaves Chomesku the fires intensity is half of what it used to be, meaning it will undoubtedly burn a person leaving two or three-degree burns. Ryuu can only let loose this fire a certain amount of times as it is in a way the very essence of Chomesku and takes a long time to rekindle which takes more energy than is used just to release it which is at her current strength about 10% of her engery.
2) Dragon Armor
Description: as the name states this is an armor that Ryuu is able to summon. When in use it increases her strength and durability five times than what it was before. The drawback of using this is that hinders her speed and movement. Even if she isn’t wearing it in the traditional way it takes a lot of energy and concentration to constantly change and move it to fit her needs, and can only change three to four times in succession after being summoned. The more times she changes its form the shorter the time she is able to use it lessening the hour by 15 minutes with each change. Ryuu changes the shape to fit her needs, most people think this armor is just something she wears but that’s not the case, as it can sometimes take the shape of long black ribbon that acts as a shield constantly moving to protect Ryuu's vital spots. The second drawback to this armor is how much energy is needed to maintain even one form, which is why Ryuu has yet to fully master this armor to its best and is only able to use it for a maximum of twenty minutes for the time being until she gets stronger where the maximum time is an hour.





History- Ryuu was born to a servant house to a noble family, her own lineage often acted as personal guards for the noble family that they have been serving for the past 800 years or so. Her mother being the head of the family at the time married a man whom no one really knew much about other than the fact that he wasn’t from around here. It was later revealed to Ryuu that her father was a draconian and that she carried his blood in her veins. But not long after her birth her father was killed while protecting the head of the noble family from a bandit attack, her mother was devastated but managed to move on and remarry. Unfortunately Ryuu’s mother also died, she did not fall by the swift blade of her opponent but by the blade of sickness that took not only her mother but also the heads wife. And so Ryuu’s step-father took place as head of the servant house, he was a rather cruel man making sure all the power went to him and not to his step daughter. At the age of ten Ryuu was a budding swordswoman, who even served the eldest daughter of the family. But this trust and excellence was soon lost during an accident while guarding the eldest daughter.

While on a stroll Ryuu was met by a group of demons, protecting the lady was her first priority and so she did her best to do so. Except the demons kept regenerating which is highly unusual for the small fry to be capable of. Eventually Ryuu lost to fatigue and a large slash across her shoulder that left her immobilized and vulnerable, Ryuu should have died that day but she did not for her lady had sacrificed herself to protect the guard that had served her for so many years. Ryuu lost consciousness for a week from her wounds, and when she woke her whole family shunned her, her ladies family despised her. And with the help of her step father Ryuu was exiled from the family denied her heritage forced to leave Ryuu wondered the land of her home country in japan.

During her exile Ryuu began exercising the demons that ruined her life, she also grew to despise the very people who raised her and taught her humility, both her family and the nobility she served. One day however Ryuu met those very same demons from before, she managed to kill them after nearly a full day of fighting but it came at a cost. Lying in the crimson stained snow, Ryuu still clutching her swords died in that same defiant stance as what had been taught to her by her mother, a grin on her face; glad she was finally able to avenge her ladies death.

So begins...

Ryuu Shosuke

Gardenia


The rain trickled over her body, steam wafted through the air carried by the cold droplets of rain. a bright vibrant figure sat alone in the middle of a courtyard, still as a statue almost like she was meditating.

Vibrant red hair that fell to the floor plastered delicately against the features of her body and face, obscuring her eyes from view. The steam came from a black sword she held in her arms, it radiated heat of such extreme temperatures one could see it radiate from it’s darker than black blade. Yet it did not burn the beautiful woman, rather it kept her warm though it did not help dry the clear liquid that drenched her clothing.

The sound of bells ringing in the distance accompanied by a voice mentioning something of a war that she would partake in as a second chance at life. But she did not want a second chance she was happy with how she died though she couldn’t remember why. This upset her greatly, the thought that she couldn’t remember her own death unsettled her, but these thoughts gave way to logic. If she did indeed die then there was no reason to remember her past life as it would only get in the way of her second chance.

Suddenly her eyes snapped open to reveal fiery orbs that were her eyes; they glowed in the gloomy light a stark contrast to her gray surroundings. In a single movement the woman stood, baring her blade to whoever dared to bother her. But the courtyard was empty, “sorry Chomesku looks like you won’t taste the flesh of life for now” her voice held a sad note to it, it complimented the hollowed look on her face as if she were thinking of something terribly sad. This woman was Ryuu, who looked at down at her arm at the slight burning sensation on her arm. In a simply ripple a white crest appeared on her arm, a knight . “Then I must serve my king and queen, what disgusting individuals with their useless sayings of love for their subjects . . .”

Ryuu sheathed Chomesku placing her at her back and it was quite noticeable how Chomesku was as long as the woman was tall, but she handled her with ease. Ryuu looked around hoping to find her bearings, hoping she would find what she was looking for. “ah there you are” her red eyes settled on a white castle that glowed in the distance across from it stood an equally elaborate castle but this one was pure black. “Interesting so you are my opponent, hope you don’t disappoint me” her voice light and playful.

And with that saying Ryuu headed in the direction of the white castle whistling a mournful tune, accompanied by a sad expression on her face. Chomesku was held over her shoulder but the heat she emitted from her black body was little sensing the sadness her master held in her, and for the first time in a while Chomesku stayed silent. Ryuu was glad for this as she did not wish to hear the berating whispers of her sword whenever she missed a potential meal.

Ryuu jumped from rooftop to rooftop a huge grin on her face that felt out of place despite the sadness that welled in her chest, but for now she let herself feel the exhilaration that came with running at such speeds and being so high from the ground. With the rooftops being slicked with water it made the possibility of her slipping even more probable. Ryuu thankfully didn’t fall, not that she would but she did stop abruptly when she felt a sudden presence(Mathius Cruven Dominus) and then a second (Lotton Cromwell)

She stood still as a statue and Chomesku suddenly flared in heat at the possible thought of tasting and burning flesh. “Hush Chomesku I know you’re hungry but they are on our side” Ryuu snapped at her sword who quieted down some but not really. (Rooftop of Gardenian Hospital) Ryuu stood there for a moment, seeing a man (Lotton Cromwell) appear outside the hospital. This made her lose interest in the fact that the man would soon deal with the presence inside and with that Ryuu continued on her way to the white castle that glowed in the distance but was much closer than before (on way to Seramel Castle).

Ryuu Shosuke

Near castle


Ryuu had been running across rooftops for some time now. Chomesku kept growling at her in anger, mainly due to the fact that she was hungry but Ryuu ignored the complaints coming from her sword. Even when she could feel the heat emanating from her black blade, Ryuu simply held her silence.
The rain had now soaked her completely, but thanks to Chomesku, Ryuu stayed relatively warm though she would shiver every now and then. Nearing the white castle Ryuu paused for a moment, shifting Chomesku on her shoulder, so she wouldn’t slip and eat at whatever she could get at without her wielder.

Ryuu thought of what she might meet once she entered the castle but finally made the decision to just go inside. And with that Ryuu walked the last few feet to the entryway of the estate of the castle. As she walked closer Ryuu could smell roses, in the watery wind and calmed down. Even Chomesku had lessened her heat, and because of that Ryuu was glad this would be her new home. But then a thought entered her mind what will they be like, those I have sworn to protect and follow orders and those who I lead in their stead. She frowned, her gripped tightened on the strap that held Chomesku, who sensing her master’s unease suddenly flared with renewed fire.

Ryuu sighed, angry at herself for having such thoughts while in the presence of her sword and she finally calmed down too shaking her head, Ryuu walked the rest of the way to the door. Heasistating just for a moment on whether or not she should continue but with the heat at her back, and opened the door.

She was met with emptiness and such extravagant surroundings Ryuu felt out of place, walking around a look of awe on her face. Her hands trailed the walls, leaving watery footprints in her wake. Then stopping she concentrated and felt a presence (Nienna Elanesse), but chose to ignore it and continued to explore the castle. (inside Seramel Castle exploring)

LOTTON CROMWELL

Gardenian Hospital


Another piece passed overhead, and left quickly (Ryou Shosuke). Lotton had a passing sense of it, but it left, quickly. Lotton did not perceive it as a threat, and then waited for the piece inside (Mathias Cruven Dominus) to make a move. He waited for a short while.

...

Lotton stood there, hand behind his back. His House of Cards allowed him to bring objects he, "carried," with him to be brought out of seemingly-nowhere, as long as no one could see where he brought the items out from. If they could acutely sense, that would qualify as well, but, even then, there were ways. Like portals. He stood like that as his senses began to kick in. He was a human, and one might think that he was a stranger to combat, but he was not. Lotton was usually on very high-alert. His senses would become sharper, his mind clearer. He was not a bloody knight who fought without a reason but to fight, but fighting was calming, in a way. He reacted to fighting as a scientific problem, peeling back layers of defense until he was ready to destroy the vital organ underneath those layers. His technical knowledge returned to him, but a side of it that was different. He could see himself leading and operating in teams that fought and hunted some experiments that ran loose. Often, the more dangerous ones killed more people. But through it all, Lotton survived. He always killed what he was aiming for, because that was what he always had tried to do. To kill. He was skilled enough that he could always make another specimen. The instincts of fighting did not occur to Lotton, though. they never did. He did not know why, but he seemed to treat the problems he would fight as problems on a study-desk: To be solved. Without strong emotion. When fighting seriously, he would calm down and deal with it like a math problem. Another piece, he sensed above the hospital (Nienna Elanesse), and looked up. Unlike the other piece, the one that flew above him earlier, this one was more visible. He could not make out much, but he could tell that it had wings.

The piece he felt inside (Mathias Cruven Dominus), he was curious about. If need be, he could use his portals to escape. If not, then he had a wide variety of combat options, to say the least. And then, the suitcase he carried with him could probably help as well. Before entering, he reached behind his back and drew the handgun from his hammer-space. It was loaded. He did not need to check for that. He moved the portal, to a higher floor, but below where he sensed the piece in the hospital. The winged figure had wings, but he had instantaneous movement through space. And really good shoes. If she was stronger than a human, he should be able to compete, at least. He hoped this was the case as he launched himself through the portal entrance, and launched out of the exit, through the glass, and into the building. He landed safely, and took off running. He could sense them both, close, but the other was faint. Lotton just noticed how faint it was. He could barely sense it, not matter how focused he was. The winged piece was ahead of him, slightly, but that distance was growing more and more. By the time he got there, the crowd seemed to block his view for the instant it took him to see at least the wing, turned away from him. He heard gunshots, and a crash of glass, but at different times. It must have leaped out of a window. Whatever the case, Lotton couldn't imagine it not using it's wings to escape, as he could no longer feel the presence of either piece in the hospital, anymore. The only reasons he could think that it would escape without it's wings was to throw Lotton's calculations off, or because it had a more expedient method. Like he did. Lotton ran to the roof to check if it was flying anywhere, and to gain a better vantage point.

Lotton reached the roof, and the rain resumed it's falling. The city and it's lights looked even more beautiful from up here. Like when he was falling. He couldn't notice it before, because he was sleepy, but he was relatively awake, now. He could feel the winged piece flying nearby, and felt the fainter presence of the piece that was in the hospital. He looked in the direction he felt, and saw that the winged piece was indeed carrying someone. Lotton needed to chase them. The portals from before had dissipated earlier, but he brought new ones. They were very small: Both were the size of Lotton's eye, and one was following them, keeping pace while the other floated in front of his eye, giving him sight. His sight moved closer, until he could clearly see that they were what appeared to be a winged female, and a man wearing clothes that did not seem fitting for him. she landed on a rooftop, and remained there. She seemed to be waiting for something. Maybe she sensed him. Whatever the case, he was tired of not knowing another piece. And then, he moved the portal around to look for their seals. He searched until he found them, and then he saw what he needed to see. These were Lotton's king and queen. Lotton moved the entrance to the floor in front of him, and expanded it, after placing the exit on the floor of the roof two buildings away, that had the winged woman and the naked man on it, and expanded that too. Using the relative-constant of gravity, and making a slight adjustment to his starting position, Lotton allowed himself to fall through the portal, face-first, holding his hat. He fell through the portal, and the force of himself entering the portal while falling face-first to the floor was about equal to the force it took to launch him to a standing position out of the exit on the other roof. He stood, and placed his hands into his pockets and looked at the two, smiling, walking towards them. The female was beautiful, her hair was beautiful, her body was attractive, and all. But to Lotton, he could not help but want to see her internal muscle structure, and her magical capabilities. Rather than the beautiful face, he saw meat and bones. Cells and magic. Atoms and quarks, and even smaller. Lotton always had a weird sense of beauty. Lotton saw the man, as well. His king seemed to mostly human, but, through the clothes, Lotton could tell he was muscular. Even as a regular human, he would be a force to be reckoned with, in the right context. Seeing what he has seen, he did not really think the man was human. But, he may be. Whichever, whatever. The point was they were his current government. He would follow them until they couldn't benefit him any longer.

"Pleased to meet you, and sleepy, who you're holding. I think I'm your rook."

Lotton moved closer and stepped foot in the winged humanoid's aura. He felt a calm and peace enter him, and what hit him was like a brick. He felt too peaceful, and his thoughts were beginning to come into an order. He stepped back, safely out of the ranged, and looked away for a moment. He felt...better, stepping closer to the winged humanoid. He was calmer. It was a shock at first. Things that probed in his mind usually were broken. Many people who had a video feed of what his thoughts were like had killed themselves. In fact, the majority had. It felt good, but not too good. He would rather live without it. He felt that he could lose himself if he exposed himself to it for too long.

"... I think we should go back to the castle."

Lotton Cromwell
A rooftop near the hospital.

Lotton saw the woman's snickering, and he immediately became annoyed. Lotton just didn't like to feel nice. Not like that. It was an intrusion into his mind. Most intruders who entered Lotton's mind typically were reduced to sobbing messes, though. They usually went insane. Whatever this intrusion was , it must not have probed into his mind manually. It probably was a non-specific mental affector. Well, whatever . Lotton was not particularly too find of feeling right now. Besides, he and the queen were on the same side. They probably had similar interests. It didn't matter. Now, they had to group up with everyone else.

The king seemed annoyed or aggravated by the existence of the police cars down below, and seemed to wish for a precious gem, that he seemed to say could help him destroy the enemy "wizard." judging by his manner, and his words, he seemed to perhaps come from a somewhat-primitive culture. Whatever the case, he seemed to really want that jewel. The queen seemed to ready her staff as well. Lotton decided not to question it.

"Sleepy, you should know that those are probably police officers. Peacekeepers. They probably arrived because someone here was causing a ruckus. In fact, they're probably just people doing their jobs and roles in society. Without them to keep the peace, this city would descend into chaos a little."

Lotton drew a white handkerchief from his sleeve, so deftly and skillfully it would look like it came from the air itself. Another swish of Lotton's hand, and the handkerchief covered just enough of his hand for his House of Cards to activate. He brought out a sapphire the size of a golf-ball, holding it between his index finger and thumb, the handkerchief pinched between his index and middle fingers, hanging, before Lotton's began polishing the sapphire with it, and then tossing it to the king. The queen spoke about flying everyone to the castle once everyone's business was concluded. Ruh roh.

"Knowing all that, have a blast," Lotton said, with a crooked smile, before turning to the queen. They were on the same side, but there was one thing he had to make sure of. He hope it wouldn't offend her. He opened his slightly, the amber in them glowing faintly as it reflected the little light it could reflect in this rainy night. "Also, lady, if you would, do not approach me with that mood-altering capability of yours. It doesn't make me feel good. It does, but I don't want it...I'll see you both at the castle."

Lotton moved the portal he had placed to appear on this roof. One headed toward the castle through the night air, the other remained on the floor at Lotton's feet. He let himself fall through, and he emerged from the floor at the white castle's entrance. He hoped that the others would appear soon. He pushed open the door, and entered. He was dripping wet, but a little heat from his gloves solved the problem. The castle was extravagant. He began to walk around the large castle. Really, he thought the furnishings welter not all necessary, but at least it looked nice. He ran into another presence (Ryuu Shosuke). It was a girl a little taller than Lotton, and with red hair. She was on his side, he knew that much. Lotton took his hat on and off, in a gesture of greeting.

"How do you do?"

Ryuu Shosuke

Seramel Castle


She had been more or less wondering awed by the furnishing of the castle. “What a strange place I wonder how one manages to go about this place?” a slender finger gently touched her chin as she thought more. Reaching a door Ryuu tried to open it by sliding it to the left but it would not budge in the least. There was a nob on the side and she grabbed it thinking that was how one would hold the door to slide it open.
That too did not work and Ryuu was beginning to show signs of frustration. “Ugh! What kind of doors are these!?” she scowled and kicked at the door; hard this caused it to break and it swung open and it dawned on her that if it swung open then that must have been how to open it.

Ears burning with ager and embarrassment, Ryuu entered the room. It was well furnished with nice furnishing that confused her a bit. Not used to such things Ryuu explored the room a bit more making her way to the large bed. Ryuu stood to the side then jumped onto the bed, landing in plump pillows and fluffy comforters. “Well at least the bed I understand- oh hush Chomesku no asked you. No you can’t eat it it’s not even living. All you would do is burn a perfectly good bed.

Ryuu left the room, somewhat guilty that she broke the door and tried to swing the other doors too. Finally she got the hang of it but then she wondered where the bathhouse was. Walking back towards where she started a figure(Lotton Cromwell) appeared out of nowhere. Within seconds Chomesku was out, held at the ready, heat emitting from her black blade ready to tear and burn at this newcomers flesh.
However Ryuu soon figured that he was on her side guessing from the presence he gave off, albeit a bit strange presence but it really meant her no harm. Lowering Chomesku, who growled at this retreating action Ryuu raised one red brow at what he did next. Raising his hat on and off his head, Ryuu wasn’t sure what that meant but figured it must have been a way of greeting by his next words.
"How do you do?"

Ryuu watched him with a steely expression on her face, and then bowed but not all the way since she could tell she was a higher rank then he. “I am faring quite well and you . . .?” her voice trailed off a little giving the subtle hint that meant she was asking for his name.

Mathius
Seramel Castle
Throne Room


The king raised his hand to catch the golf ball-sized sapphire against his palm. His fingers curled about it, clutching it as he lowered it before his eyes. He then closed them, frowning as he appraised the power within the stone. Nothing seemed to be happening between him and the rock, but really the power it exuded had been so slight and controllable that nothing would have happened unless he wanted it to. Opening his eyes, he pocketed the stone and said somewhat pleased, "This will do...for now."

At the angel's suggestion, the Rook disappeared from the roof, leaping into a hole that appeared in the floor. The king's brows knitted curiously as he approached the hole to gaze into it to see the Rook walk through the double doors of a magnificent structure: his castle. Without a word of warning to the queen, Mathius jumped into the portal before it could seal to rocket upright on the other side. He spread his feet over the hole to keep from falling through it and gazed up at the coral-white building before him.

This...is mine, he thought. With this castle and its pieces, I will claim this realm.

No one would taser him ever again. Just as Lotton did, Mathius approached the doors, but unlike the treatment Lotton faced, they opened on their own. The king stood there speechlessly and surprised that even the castle acknowledged him.

"Your king is home," Mathius muttered.

Soaked and wet, his silver hair matted upon his head and hoody as full as a sponge, he crossed the rest of the distance, taking a step across the threshold when his clothes shifted, morphing as he crossed the borders between the inside and out. A foot within and he was dry and draped in white and gold robes. A hood was drawn over his head and a mask as pristine as porcelain was situated on his face. Mathius held his arms out before him, gazing upon his new garb. Behind the mask, he was grinning, growing drunk with the power that was erected before him. As he walked the long foyer, pawns materialized to his left and right, appearing in files that led all the way to the spacious and circular parlor. Reaching a hand into his pocket, the king removed the sapphire and clutched it. His figure then winked out of existence to appear at the end of the hall, cutting the length he'd have to travel not even in half. Standing before the parlor, he gazed upon the massive staircase and then further up to the numerous floors that circled above.

I desire only to see my throne, the king thought.

On the highest floor, two pawns appeared and the king craned his head to gaze upon the plain, stone-like figures. He once again winked out of existence before he reappeared on that floor. The smooth, dark, wooden doors opened to a grand hall where a black carpet, split a path across the white-marble floor, leading up a small staircase to a throne of ivory. Behind the chair's head was a half-sun of blade hilts, creating a seemingly crown. It was beautiful.

As soon as the sorcerer stepped onto the carpet, more pawns appeared, rising from the marble floor, appearing to have been sculpted from the marble itself. As he passed between their files, they drew their swords, the hiss of steel, resonating through the chamber as they held their blades aloft above their king's head. He walked to the end of the carpet, up the steps, and turned to face his servants. As soon as he took his seat upon the cold throne, the pawns simultaneously sheathed their swords and became as still as statues.

"Excellent," the king praised. He was already impressed and eager to get the battle preparations underway. "Summon all who serve me."

The pieces of Seramel would then feel their brands tingle and glow, and would know of the king's order. They were to gather in the throne room.

LOTTON CROMWELL
Seramel Castle Interior

"I am faring quite well, and you?"

"Just peachy," Lotton replied.

At least she wasn't a barbarian. Lotton had the impression she would be. He didn't know why. If she was a barbarian, she was a well-mannered one. With a friendly smile, Lotton looked around his current location. The castle was very lavish. He wondered at the practicality of having a medieval castle as a base of operations. In a city, it mus stick out like a sore thumb. Whatever the case, maybe there were precautions of a magical nature here. He didn't know. He hadn't even been paying attention to the castle's furniture. He might not even be able to name half of them. Whatever. A castle was a castle. Turning back to the woman, Lotton made eye contact for a few seconds. Lotton only ever made eye contact when he first met someone, or under special conditions. He never saw the need to make eye contact. Despite all the things one can learn from someone by making eye contact, it was a skill Lotton had neglected to learn. Working in a laboratory, the personality deductions made with eye contact were of little consequence to Lotton. Science and logic and reason were all the charisma he needed to convey. whoever tried to argue with him tended to lose, by simple recounting of facts. Well, now he wasn't in a lab, but a castle where he was fighting a war against things he did not know. He didn't even know anything about his own team-mates. Relatively little about his team-mates, rather. What he got from her eyes were relatively little, in terms of personality. She seemed professional, maybe. Or maybe not. Lotton was not very good at reading people. They never made sense to him. He'd rather stick to sciences he was good at, that interested him. Harder sciences. All he could father from her was how bright and red her eyes were. They were beautiful eyes, but he had the feeling that most if the people here had beautiful eyes. Even Lotton was told that he had beautiful eyes once. Too bad he would not be seeing everyone's eyes very much during his tenure in this weird place.

The mark on Lotton's hand began to glow. Lotton could feel it. He didn't even need to take his gloves off to tell. He could feel remark on his skin while it seemed to react to whatever stimulus was causing it to behave this way. The answer reached Lotton's head. At this point, he was getting more tolerant of the mental intrusions. This must have been the communication method both sides had with their soldiers. The message reached Lotton and he paid it heed. Lotton ceased his interactions with the red woman, smiling in farewell, for whatever short amount of time he would not be with his other team members, and made his way to the throne room. The trip did not take very long, and Lotton entered the throne room. Lotton reached in his sleeve and threw a white handkerchief to the side of the throne room, still within view of the king. The handkerchief stretched and enlarged in mid-air, so that, when it reached it's destination, it seemed to land on something solid, the size of a chair. Lotton walked towards it, flicked the handkerchief off the chair, which now appeared, fully corporeal, and then let the handkerchief vanish back into his sleeve, as it shrunk down to normal size again. The House of Cards was a great thing for magic shows, definitely. Lotton sat down, leaning forward against the back of the chair, after turning it to face the king. The king seemed to be dressed differently, to look more regal in appearance, and, otherwise, more serious. This war might be getting started soon. Lotton waited for the others to arrive soon.

Ryuu Shosuke

Seramel Castle


“Just peachy” was his only reply, short and blunt but it would do. peachy, just peachy, what a strange response raising a brow at his(Lotton) response Ryuu left it alone for the time being. Bright red eyes came into contact with equally bright eyes but then they fled elsewhere as if regretting making contact. what a strange man. Most men I’ve met often keep eye contact to show superiority and dominance but this man only made the briefest of contact.

Red eyes narrowed again in curiosity and she folded her arms across her chest in thought of what to do now. However that soon changed at the sudden heat emitting from her arm of the tattoo she was known for in the past. It was an uncomfortable heat as it wasn’t like Chomesku whom she could bear and calm down some. But this heat; it would not go away until she followed the order given to her by her king. ugh what a disgrace. A woman such as me taking orders from a man, the bastard better be worthy of my servitude. she glared at the wall before her figured that the man she had met also had the same feeling.

All she glimpsed a smile from him which she thought was strange. But then who was she to say what was strange or not in this world especially with this man she barely knew and had only just met. Shaking her head Ryuu cared not for returning the smile but instead went to her desired destination at her own pace. Not wanting to seem like she was following him. She opened the doors shortly after they were closed holding Chomesku in her arms for warmth and familiarity. Before her stood a rather handsome man in lavish clothing that brought about the thought of a doll. my how silly he looks all high and mighty with his clothing. I’ve never seen that type of clothing, I wonder where he’s from these thoughts flashed through her mind but chose not to resurface until later ado. All the while Ryuu made herself comfortable leaning against the wall hugging Chomesku close to her chest and watched the man on the throne before thinking of a reply. “You called us here my lord but what of your queen, where would she be at such a time of calling?” her lips formed into a cat-like smile but it was not a genuine smile but just one to show a false pretense of kindness and other such notions.
