Description

Image
Image
Name
Autolycus

Title/ Alias -
King of Thieves/ Otto Hermes (Gardenian Name)

Faction
Plenoran

Role
Bishop

Race
Demigod

Gender
Male

Appearance- Autolycus has deeply tanned skin and black hair. His eyes are a piercing sky blue that almost seem to glow. His body is very toned and he is very fit. His battle attire is a collection of trophies from some of his most successful heists. The cloth on his head were stolen from Nyx’s cloak and dyed so she could not find them. His boots were stolen from his father, Hermes. His gauntlet was stolen from Hades. His jerkin is made out of the skin of Nemean Lion, the pelt stolen from his pupil Heracles.

To blend in with Gardenia, Autolycus has dawned a black dress suit with a blue shirt and a Black tie. He keeps his hair slicked back in an slick executive style.

Personality - Autolycus is your typical dashing rogue. He has a smile that has melted the hearts of many fair maidens and will melt many more. He is wily and clever as they come, according to his auto-biography. Exceedingly self-confident and a world class smart-alec. His ego know no bounds but will not put other people down to inflate it. He loves to talk and he knows good things happen when he does. His is very charming and treats everyone he meets exactly the same.

Autolycus hates restrictions and rules and believes that everyone should be free and should enjoy their lives o the fullest. Though, he knows people will always follow rules to maintain their society from falling into chaos. That’s where he comes in. He likes to spread a little chaos wherever he goes. He believes everybody needs a little chaos now and then. Then there is of course, his obsession with thievery. His is of course fond of being rich and comfortable, but that is not the true reason he steals. He loves the thrill of it and he loves proving to the world that he can steal anything and that no one, not man or god, is safe from him.

He is truly doesn't care about the root of the conflict or why is here. "You don't look an unlocked door in the keyhole." as one of his many sayings go. He sees this entire situation at just another shot at glory. He sees the entire war as the perfect opportunity to show this new world just how great he is. And if he gets rich along the way, well, that's just how it goes. He feels that his faction of Plenoran is the same as the other. He would just as easily befriend members of his faction as the other. Even though he is on a team, he will always be out for #1, namely, himself. He would probably use the relationships he has forged to his own advantage. He really is the ultimate opportunist.

Even with all of his selfishness and cockiness, Autolycus really is a better person than he let's on. He really has a heart of gold, but he would never admit it.





Weapon(s) - He uses a sword and dagger combo:

Autolycus also uses a set of throwing daggers:

Fighting Style- Autolycus predominately relies on speed and surprise while fighting. He is not particularly strong but he is incredibly fast. He will never charge an opponent head on, but will flank them or try to get above or behind them. He will use anything to his advantage including his surroundings. Such as flowerpots or roof tiles or even clothes hanging out to dry. He will use anything to give himself an edge in combat.

He holds his blades backwards, using a slashing/cutting technique rather then stabbing. His is very proficient in hand to hand combat and much prefers close range combat. Though, he will retreat into shadows or some other hiding place after a few seconds of direct combat so he can score another surprise attack.


--Abilities--
Role 1: Sense pressence- Can feel the spiritual pressences of the other "pieces".
Role 2: Surpressed Spirit- Unable to be detected by others except the Queen.
Role 3: Far sight- To see with a good eye. Sometimes even the smallest details never escape them.

1)Mask of Night: Covering his face with his head garb allows him to be invisible in any form of darkness or moonlight. He can stand in a shadow and not be seen during the day and at night, he is invisible fully. That is until he makes physical contact with another person, then he is revealed and is much harder for him to disappear again. He can stay on this form the longest but it will eventually drain his soul energy.

2)Gauntlet of Souls: By activating his gauntlet, he is able to bring his body into the spirit state and phase through objects such as walls or blades. Though this is a very demanding process, leaving him scarred and weakened if in it too long. Usually only used in split second occasions. Can only be activated 5 times until next he sleeps.

3)Soul Split: Using his Gauntlets second ability, he can split his soul up into 13 pieces, each with their own body which is a remote copy of his own. They all have his skills and can move and think on their own yet also have a hive mind with each other. Last resort technique. He only uses this if he has no other option for it does horrible damage to himself, leaving him very weakened. Each hit his clones take is done on him when they merge back onto him, just not as bad. This depletes his soul energy and and can only use it once until he has recharged again, namely, slept.

4)Father’s Footsteps: Being the son of Hermes, Autolycus is incredibly fast, being able to run much faster than normal men and has beaten horses in races. Autolycus can also glide from place to place, not fly. His footsteps are completely silent and he can walk on any surface. These are the abilities he was born with along with the power given to him by his fathers boots.


History- Long ago in ancient Greece, Autolycus was a King. A king of thieves that is. It was a self-proclaimed title that was very appropriate for him. He did much in his life, he made many friends and enemies and stole from all of them. No where was too heavily guarded for him to get in. He was a master thief and skilled fighter. He taught Hercules how to wrestle and stole an artifact from every God and Daemon in the Greek pantheon and a few from the Norse and Egyptian. He lived a grand life and wished it would go on forever. Unfortunately, even being a Demigod, Autolycus was not immortal. He was eventually was caught in Persia by Hera’s enforcers and was decapitated in front of the Gods.

Oddly enough, the moment he felt the bite of the axe, he woke up in Gardenia. He thought he was in Elysium for a few moments, until he suddenly knew he wasn’t and that there was a battle to fought. He didn’t know how he knew this, he just did. Seeing this as a golden opportunity to continue on his legacy as the King of Thieves and a sort of pathway to immortality Autolycus is more than happy to be there.

Autolycus



"Oh come now, Ive never hurt anyone. Just....absconded their valuables, which is a debatable word. They were valuable to me, since I went through all that trouble to steal them. If they did find them valuable, they would have protected them better. What I'm trying to say is...." Two rather large fists were quickly sent into the gut of Autolycus. "Stop your squawking, half blood. You can't talk your way out of this one. Nemesis has been waiting to give you what you deserve." said one of the large glowing men wearing golden armor with a peacock adorned on it. Autolycus, now being dragged up steps made up of a heavenly stone, simply finished coughing up what the two enforcers had knocked out of him.*Cough* "Half blood? That's an odd insult coming from two dumb ugly brutes made of rock and peacock feathers." The two fists came flying again, but this time they did not reach their mark. Autolycus suddenly slipped out of the shackles he was in and jumped into a crouched handstand on the enforcers bulky arms. He then delivered 5 swift kicks to the faces of the enforcers, but to the eyes of a mortal, they would think he only delivered one each. The brutes were sent flying off the staircase into the clouded abyss below. He looked over the edge and had a very large smirk on his face. He cupped his hands and shouted into the clouds. "A little advice for next time, never let me talk!" With that, Autolycus leaped incredibly high into the air and landed atop one of the divine buildings of Olympus.

*Whistles*"Would you look at that view. I'd bet Odysseus would love this view!" Autolycus stated, thinking about his young grandson and his daughter Anticlea on their island home of Ithaca. He shook his head of such weighty thoughts, knowing that he could not see them again due to him being on the run from the gods. "Well, I'd best be off then." Autolycus took an odd diving position and jumped off the building into the clouds......he then immediately re-surfaced being carried by two giant eagles. "Of Course...."

The eagles then dropped him off in the center of the Chamber of the Gods. Their sat Zeus and the others, all looking down upon him. Autolycus got to his feet and looked around. "Well, the gangs all here! You could have just asked me to come to the family reunion. A chauffeur service was not necessary." Zeus quickly stood up. "SILENCE!" The entire room, if not the world, shook violently. He raised his hands and suddenly lightning leaped from the clouded floor and wrapped around Autolycus's ankles and wrists and forced him to a kneeling position. A golden block then appeared before him and the lightning forced him to place his head on it. Lightning then shot out of the block and wrapped around his throat, making sure he couldn't move. "All these precautions for little old me? I'm touched.""I said silence. For crimes against humanity and the Gods. and for your hubris in front of the Gods. You have been sentenced to death! NEMESIS!" An owl suddenly flew down into the room and transformed into a beautiful woman in golden armor. She approached him and bent down in front of his face. "Well, well. They finally caught you Autolycus.""Nemesis, good to see you again. I hope how we parted last didn't upset you too much. You were fantastic by the way." She simply punched him the face.

Nemesis grabbed a golden axe and took her place near Autolycus. Autolycus then spoke. "I have never killed a man and I have never attacked a God that has not attacked me. I have stolen worldly possessions and artifacts of the Gods. Yes, I have pride. But the only creatures that have any true hubris are you. You believe you are perfect and can not be wrong, so when someone insults you, you kill them. Many of my kind have insulted you and done far worse things to you than I ever could. But, since you fear them, you come after me. Know this! I go to Elysium! I meet my peace there! And as for all of you, you are all.." Nemesis quickly swung the axe down and then...

Rain. He felt rain falling down upon him. He saw darkness with with twinkling lights around him. He looked about and was in a place he did not recognize nor comprehend. "....pathetic." He whispered out, finishing his sentence. "Is this......no. No this is not Elysium. I am here....for a purpose." Autolycus grabbed his head as he suddenly understood things. He then saw a marking on his hand. "I'm a.....Bishop. I have to fight." He then stood up and really looked around. He was on top of a building. A very very very tall building, the tallest in this entire city. "I'm........ALIVE!!!!!!!!" A clap of thunder sounded as he screamed his victory. "Take that, Zeus! Take that Hera! I am Autolycus, King of Thieves! And I yet live!" He took a few more moments to take in his victory, then noticed something out of the corner of his eye. It was a black castle. It felt...familiar, like he had been their a hundred times and to be safe and warm, all he had to do was go inside. He then shook his head. "Later, right now...." Autolycus suddenly burst into a run and jumped off the building in a swan dive fashion. "There's an entire city to plunder!" He fell at a much slower pace than he should, and he then pulled up on his body and began gliding towards another rooftop. He landed and began jumping from rooftop to rooftop with great speed. The mortals around him wouldn't even be able to see him. "THE KING OF THIEVES IS BACK!"

"Man I love this city! People make their eating utensils out of silver! This whole town must be more loaded than King Midas!" Autolycus said to himself as he sat upon a rooftop, counting his spoils. He had been at it for quite awhile now, and he had collected many valuable items. "I wonder where I could fence this stuff off to and make some Dinars!" He thought aloud as he looked at his loot. "Until I find one, I better stow this stuff away......some place nobody would look." Autolycus looked around and then noticed that odd Black Castle on the outskirts of the city. As soon as he saw it, he felt the same odd feeling as before. As if he had lived there all of his life. "Well, no one would suspect it." Autolycus said to himself. He gathered up all of the absconded valuables in one of his special sacks and leaped off the roof.

He flew over rooftops and and the heads of people caught out in the rain. It felt good to the feel the rain on his face again. Persia isn't exactly the wettest of countries, and it made him feel like he was in Greece again. It had been years since he had seen his ancestral home. Now, he may never see it again. Though he was calm on the outside, inside Autolycus was swimming with a plethora of mixed emotions. He had no idea what was happening or why he was truly here. He just decided to do what he normally does, go with the flow.

He reached the outskirts if the city in a matter of minutes. He could sense....presences of the....others that were involved in.....whatever this was. He walked through the forest road up to the tall looming ebony castle. It cast no shadow since the moon was hidden by clouds, but he imagined it would be just as dark if it did. As he drew closer, he noticed a girl standing in front of it. He quickly jumped into one of the trees silently and threw his cowl on and became invisible. He hoped to each tree like there was little gravity. He looked down at her, he seemed to be sensing her. She was one of the people who was involved in whatever was going on. He then looked closer and noticed a mark on her hand. It was similar to his, yet different. They were both at the black castle, they must be on the same team. Besides.....she was rather beautiful. He his loot in the tree and jumped onto the ground with no noise. He then spoke, while still invisible. "Why, hello there." Autolycus then stepped towards her and removed his cowl, turning him visible again. He then made a very exaggerated bow. "I am Autolycus, King of Thieves. What would a beautiful maiden such as yourself be doing in the presence of such a dark and foreboding castle." He said this oozing with suave and slowly walking around her like a shark circling it's prey. "But..."He stopped just in front of her, taking her hand. He then bent down, his mouth just above her hand. "Does this beautiful maiden have a name?" he then lightly placed his lips on her hand.

Katsuya


Roy still hadn't caught up to her yet. 'Humans are so slow.'[i] She thought, standing there waiting for him. Then someone(Autolycus) greeted her and said he was the 'King of Thieves.' He persisted by asking her why she was here and what her name was. Except she didn't like the way the man worded it. It made him seem old, or from a different era. "[i]Kinuln nael, qiole huyoe tiquk roxazey fiore os wyarde." She mumbled before taking her hand away from him. She didn't sense anything from him, but she could barely make out a mark of his hand. "I am Katsuya Hirano. I am supposed to be a knight." She said turning to face the entrance that she came through to be on the grounds. "I should ask you, what are you doing here human?" She asked, acting snobby and a little annoyed. She hated it when people snuck up on her, only Prince Lyme was allowed to do that. She wasn't in her normal forms, so no one could tell what race she was. They had just assumed she was human, but now she had assumed the man in front of her was a human. He didn't smell like a human, so she did the same for him.

"What is your name?" She asked, continuing to speak English. She doubted anybody understood elfish, which was good if she wanted to say something without them knowing, but she couldn't share if she had ideas and didn't want some other people besides the person she was talking to to know. "Wah." She stretched again, thinking of how she had gotten from Kanavan to this city. It puzzled her, frustrated her. She had been relaxing in her meadow and then she woke up here. She was still getting soaked with rain as it fell. Her hair was sticking to her clothes, which were sticking to her body.

Roy's eyes widened. "Princess?" She's royalty? Alone, and dressed like that? But he had no reason to suspect she was lying, or that she was telling the truth, and so it changed little. He turned to look towards the castle. "Yes, that's the place. Care to travel with... Um..." He was suddenly aware that she'd vanished, run off so quickly he couldn't even see her already, and leaving him along under his barrier umbrella.

... Well, fine, if you want to get soaked, he thought, annoyed at her and himself.

Roy headed for the castle, manifesting and removing barriers overhead to keep himself from getting soaked further. Fortunately, the streets had mostly cleared, so no one was around to hear him mutter to himself like a madman. As he continued through the streets, he noted a few things further. Empty stands declaring newspapers for sale, boxes that lit up with the occasional burst of sound and light, but mostly just flickered... Some of the buildings didn't seem especially real either. It was starting to unnerve him. That, combined with the complete ignorance of him by the populace, made him wonder if perhaps he'd become a ghost.

But no. That was stupid. Ghosts weren't real, any more than... Than...

Any more than magic is, right? said a treacherous part of his brain. He sullenly told it to shut up or he'd turn the barriers off.

Either way, he was certain he wasn't a ghost. But that didn't explain what he actually was though. Presumably, the same thing as that girl- She didn't die, which ruled out ghosts. Unless she didn't know she died. Shut up, brain.

Soon, although not so soon that he hadn't nearly exhausted himself with his 'umbrella', he found himself walking down a dark forest path instead of a rainy street. The transition had been sudden, just as the disappearance of any life besides his own had. Before, he'd simply been alone metaphysically, an ignored outsider. Now the only people here were himself and... And...

Outside of a massive gate of black marble, he could see Katsuya and another talking. He felt the same sort of odd remembrance for the other man, an inexplicable comradeship that almost completely vanished when Roy saw him kiss her hand. That cheeky bastard! Smooth, though.

He waved a hand in their direction and whispered "itzuli." A barrier appeared over the heads of the two, hopefully keeping the rain off them. They might notice it as branches overhead were pushed aside and the rain began to slide off to fall off the path. "Hallo!" he called, hurrying up and getting rained on again as he outran his barriers. When he reached the safety of this one, he smiled. "Hello again, miss Hirano. And good evening, sir...?"

Calliope had exchanged her her dirty dress for a black skirt and tank top which were connected to eachother with a hauberk. Unlike she had expected it was quite comfortable and somehow even complimented her figure. The high heels she had been wearing were switched with black boots. The only things she was still wearing were a bracelet and her beloved ribbon. "Now let's try to find some other "Chess pieces",shall we?"

She had been only walking for a minute of two when she saw the gates of a black castle. There were three other persons. One female and two males. The Female quite the beauty,the males weren't bad-looking either. She walked up closer wondering if she would interupt the dicussion they seemed to have. "Well even if don't bother them I'll will be disturbing them anyway since the place I'm trying to go to is the castle and they are standing right in front of the gates." When she had finally closed up the gap between them she had decided to just listen to their discussion for now. She sat down only a meter away from where they were standing watching them like they were the lead actors in an interesting play.

The woman took her hand away from his lips. He found that quite rude for her to treat him in such away when he had been nothing but a gentleman. She then told him her name. "You have two names? You must be a Roman or some easterner. Ive always found it a little too...........extravagant to have more than one name. Then again, your beauty is extravagant so, it fits." He said with a suave smile, his teeth seemed to gleam, even though there was very little light. "What do you mean, supposed to be? Are you a knight or aren't you? If you are, I'd say your a knight of Aphrodite. For only a woman of ethereal quality could have eyes like yours." He said, ever inching closer to her. He slowly walked around to where she had just recently faced. Her next comment was one of the rudest things he had ever heard. He stopped in front of her and looked her up and down. He then sniffed the air around her. "Yep, you must be royalty. Only a royal can think so highly of themselves as to believe any other person they come in contact with is beneath them. For your information, sweetheart, I ain't no human. I'm the son of a god. That isn't a figure of speech, I'm Autolycus! Son of Hermes, God of speed, sportsmanship, travel and thieves. So no matter how blue your blood is, you can't outrank a Demigod." He turned away from her and walked a few feet away from her with his hands on his hips. "Then again." He turned back to her. "I'm sounding exactly like you now. I guess we both need to work on that. I'm not going to though. I pride myself by having the biggest ego in the known world. How could I not when your as skilled as I am. After all, I am....." He did a quadruple back flip from where he was standing all the way to the gate of the castle and landed on one of the small spikes sticking out of the black gate. Both feet seemed to be balancing perfectly on the single spike. His scarf blew in the wind and he looked directly at her. "....The King of Thieves." He then jumped off the fence and glided all the way to her.

When he landed next to her, he turned to her. "As to what I'm doing here......well that's none of your business, little girl." He then suddenly appeared incredibly close to her, holding her hands. "Unless.....you'd like it to be your business" He said with a grin, eyebrows dancing up and down. He was about to continue when an awkward looking man(Roy) waved at them and greeted them. He immediately backed off, not knowing what could happen. He also noticed that no rain was hitting him any more, but it was still raining. He found it very odd. He greeted the lady as if he was her servant. He seemed very nice though. He turned to him. He smiled and grabbed his forearm in a warm grip. "Name's Autolycus, King of Thieves. Well met. You a friend of...uh.......which name do you use as your casual name. I can never figure it out." He said, scratching his chin. "Ah well, it doesn't matter. Since we all seem to have some sort of mark, I believe we are all here for the same purpose. I am a Bishop. Katsuya, you said your a knight. That means.......whatsyourame over here is a...." He turned the mans arm and looked at the mark. "A pawn. I have no idea what any of that means, except that were comrades. Fighting for the glory of.....Black, I believe." he said, still thinking about it.

He was going to say more, when he saw a redheaded woman(Calliope) standing a bit away from them, watching them. He immediately went to her. "Well, fortune spreads her legs for me this day. An other beauty has come into my.......wait a minute." Autolycus slowly made his way toward her, looking very intently at her face. "I know your face........" He examined her even closer, his eyes then lit up. "Calliope! Apollo's girl! It's been awhile. Last time I saw you, you were pining after that one mortal. What was his name? Adndrocles? Ajax? Atraxis? Anyways, I hope there's no hard feelings about Pyrois. It was only one of your dads horses....and he got them back." he said in a friendly manner. He then stopped and looked at her. "Calliope....what are you doing here? And.....what are you wearing?"

Calliope showed him a bright smile.
"Long time no see,Dear. And didn't you know? My mortal was called Andreas and well,I kind of made him immortal but then dumped him by making a deal with Hades. He cheated on me and you know that I hate it when people betray me. Maybe I'm a little too hard with that but I cant' change my personality even if i would want to. But I guess I don't need to explain to you. You know how easily I'm prickled on that area. What I'm more suprised about is that you didn't know. Since it's the talk of the century between the gods I figured you would know but...seems not. And of course I habor no hard feelings about Pyrois,It's my dad's horse,not mine. So,in a way it had nohing to do with me. And if you ask me he should have cared more for the thing. Then now moving on to the clothing,Next time ask one thing at a time okay? Now I have the feeling that I just keep rambling on and on....." She stopped for a moment to sigh and took a deep breath which she didn't need to take."To be honest with you I'm not a fan of the clothing either,you know I like my clothing to be more ....daring. But the gown I was wearing became dirty and an old man was willing to trade with these clothes ..... "

Deliberately she let a blush came on her face before continuing her talk. She really loved how she was able to completely control her face. It was ony of those skills which came naturally with being a muse. You had to be a perfect artist on every area,acting included. She took a deep breath opened her mounth but then immediatly closed it again. She did the same progress several times to make it seem like she hesitated to tell him. "....Ah.....,it's kind of embrassing but the reason I am here is...Well after my problems with my mortal,I realized just how much of a gentlemen you were and I know that this is going to sound cheesy but I can't put it in anyother way." For a moment she was quit to give the words she was going to say next more impact. She really loved acting."I..I...I am afraid that I have fallen for your overflowing charms and while searching for you to confess my love I ended up here.....Hahaha,Don't worry that was just a joke. Even though I would love to have a romance with you that isn't the reason why I'm here." She showed the crest on the palm on her hand,the crest of a queen. "I have also been chosen,Who are your friends ?" she said with a look at them "Mortals? My name is Calliope by the way." Those words had been directed at the other two who were with Autolycus

Roy looked between the two, the newcomer and the cloaked man, confused. Their names were very familiar to one educated in the classical style, but... "Er, excuse me," he asked, certain he'd heard wrong. "Did you just say Autolycus? King of thieves, stole entire herds of animals, taught Herakles how to throw down?" He forced his tone to be light. "And... Calliope? Homer's Muse? Surely, this is some kind of a jest?" He looked between them, as they talked of things that were surely just mythical. Or, so he would have thought. "Aha, you're... You're not joking. Aha." Well, there goes all reason and sanity. Myths and legends walk among us. Of course, Roy himself was dead, so he supposed he shouldn't be too surprised.

He cleared his throat, aware that his face was probably reddening. That's right, Roy, make a fool of yourself in front of two young ladies... Such a gentleman you are. I just need some time to figure this new situation out, that's all. "Ah, my apologies... I am Roy Ametz, of London. Er, I suppose you'd never have heard of it, considering your time period..." He racked his brain. The Romans had conquered Britain, but had the Greeks even known of it? Years on the streets had reduced his knowledge, but he was pretty sure the answer was 'no'.

Calliope looked at the one who had introduced himself as Roy Ametz. "Yes,I'm Homer's Muse,But Sweetheart of course I know where Brittain lays, how would I otherwise have been able to inspire Shakespeare and go annoy him everyday. Well I annoyed him in the beginning but in the end he treated me like his sister and he offered me a romance.....I should have made him immortal instead of Andreas,At least he was a gentlemen,had talent and actually loved me. That's not something you can say about Andreas."

'Greek legends?' She thought, sitting down in mid-air and thinking to herself before she asked out loud, "What are these... Greeks you speak of? Are they a type of dessert?" She crossed her legs and looked at each one of them before going back to think about what Autolycus said.

'A Demigod? What the hell was a Demigod?' Katsuya sighed, giving up the matter. Humans were confusing to her, but Elfish might be confusing to the humans, so all was fair. She pushed the air around her to turn to face the girl with red hair and odd clothing(Calliope) and Autolycus. "To let you know, Katsuya is my first name," she said blankly before continuing. "Also, I'm don't know of 'Westerners' or any of the like." She switched to laying on her stomach, again still floating in the air. "I am the proud Elven Princess of Kanavan." She giggled, finally noticing the rain was no longer falling on her again.

Then what everyone was calling the girl finally made through her thick skull. "What is a 'Homer's Muse?'" Katsuya asked impatiently, hating being left out. Again, humans were getting on her nerves, along with the... Demigod and Muse. She sat there silently, her blue eyes illuminating in a bolt of lightning that flashed suddenly. The weather seemed to be calming down, but ferocious still, dragging it out.

Roy shook himself out of his shock. She taught the Bard himself! This more than makes up for my death. Imagine what I could learn from this woman- What the world could...! He shook himself out of that, too. No, no, slow down, Roy. You're dead. No doubt this isn't the same world you're used to. He recalled some degree of his instruction under the venerable Mario Apicello, the one who'd taught him how to use his magic; Something about how there were many worlds, of which his had been just one. While he had dismissed it as preposterous then, who knew, now? But no, more likely this was some different time or place than he had lived in. They might as well have been the same thing. His education, frivolous and obsessed with tradition as it was, would no doubt be next to useless here. It was his street skills that would protect him. Nevertheless, curiosity prompted him to speak. "I'm impressed by that- Tell me, does that mean that the 'Dark Lady' from his sonnets might be-?" He was interrupted, however, by Katsuya.

"What are these... Greeks you speak of? Are they a type of dessert? What is a 'Homer's Muse?'"

Roy turned, surprised. She looked foreign, though. I shouldn't be surprised to learn she is. "The Greeks are... A people, I suppose. In Europe, and obviously in Greece. Once upon a time they controlled much of the known world." He wrinkled his nose. "Mind, the 'known world' generally consisted of a few hundred miles of coasts, back then. And Homer was an author of epic poems, apparently inspired by this lady, the Muse Calliope." He hesitated. "You speak English, though. Where are you from, if you've never heard of the Greeks despite that? They're fairly well known."

He thought he heard, faintly, the sound of crashing movement, but felt certain he was wrong. After all, nobody else was near, right?

Calliope listened to Roy, fairly amused. He talked like controlling those miles of coast was nothing.
She was getting more and more curious about this boy. Something about him was different then normal humans.
Then again,she stongly doubted that if you were a normal person you would be chosen for this game. 'Well,Roy,Autolycus and .....' Before she could even finish her sentence she flinched suprised by a sudden noise......Calliope looked around her at the people who were standing with her. Roy seemed to have noticed it to. 'Was I the only one who heard that or what? And if I wasn't I suggest we go investigate what it was. 'So,let's go inside,Shall we?'

Roy's eyes widened. One person hearing things was a coincidence, but two meant there was a wolf behind you. Er, so to speak. "Yeah. There must be somebody else in the castle." He turned towards the castle, where the gates stood open and inviting.

Here we go, storming our own castle. Great start, guys. "I dunno about you all, but getting out of the rain sounds great too." He grinned. "Besides. This place is ours, I think. We probably should check it out, no?"

He hurried inside, coming into a large entrance chamber. (Sorry, GM, but I want to move this along.) A large open space with chairs along the walls and, at the back, a large, doubled staircase to the next floor. Doors were located along all walls, to who knows where- None had any markings to discern their purpose. Black was, of course, the dominant color, but it was by no means the only one. The warm browns, reds, and whites of oak and mahogany decorated the stairs and banisters, while golden tapestries depicting...

Roy found his eyes dancing over the embroidery, unable to focus on it. Whatever it showed, he could not for the life of him see it. Perhaps that was a good thing.

"Hello?" he called out, unusually brave for once. "Is anyone there?" The sound of movement was still audible from nearby...

Katsuya


Katsuya hesitated a moment before following Roy into the castle, though she was distracted by so many things. "Hm." She grunted, resting her head in her hand. "I do wonder about these things sometimes." She proceeded, laughing to herself as she went through the giant doors. "Roy?" She asked around, losing him, occasionally seeing outlines of things as her eyes slowly adjusted to the darkness. It was one one of the things she hated more than her fear of drowning, or dying.

The darkness seemed to close in on her, practically suffocating her in it's grasp. "N-No." She charged forward, smacking her head into a pillar. Her forehead had a bump on it and she feel backwards on top of that. "It hurts!" She cried out like a small child who had just scraped their knee. "ROY!" She screamed this time, wanting someone to be there to comfort her and tell her it would all be alright.

After a few moments of silence, she pulled her knees to her chest and started crying. "I want to go home. Back to Kanavan." She hiccuped in between a few words, but she knew that wasn't going to happen. It pained her to think that she would never she her family again. None of the friendly neighbors. None of the Palace Personnel. "My heart truly hearts." She sobbed a bit more, letting her face face on her knees. "I don't know anyone here! I probably won't make any friends!" She screamed angrily, her legs making it quiet so it wouldn't echo. Her body could be seen shaking up and down, and she continued to wail quietly.
