Aurelie Kest

"I wonder if these pre-conceptions are set in stone."

0 · 193 views · located in The City of Nerris

a character in “Spellwar: Creation and Destruction”, as played by sparkleshine

Description

Name:Aurelie Kest
Age: 15
Gender: Female
Appearance: Image only without the heels
Role:Spell-link
Partner: Miraze X
Ability Specialty: Dream Veil – if Aurelie concentrates on someone without any magical resistance, she can send them temporarily into a dream-awake state. Whilst they are in this state she can control what they are dreaming, which means that she can make them dream of the information she needs to know or make them dream that they have to attack something or run away. Whilst in this state they move slowly, like a sleepwalker – anyone can tell that they are dreaming, and anyone awake can easily fight them. She can only do this to one person at a time at present and has to be concentrating completely on it, doing nothing else. She can however do it from a distance with someone she has had contact with before. (Also, she can shrug off mental domination with ease herself.)
Weapon Name/Appearance: A short length of chain (Manrikigusari).
Personality: Tough and smart, Aurelie is a caring and sensitive person by nature but she has had to harden to survive. Like her mage, she hungers to understand the world around her and hates lies and deceit. Of course, she’s learned to accept it in this world but, peculiarly, Miraze is the only person she can truly trust. She’s also paranoid, suspicious and wary, though she tries to hide the extent from outsiders.
Bio: Aurelie came into the unfortunate position of being fought over as a spell-link. She came from a troubled home in which her abusive, alcoholic mother would alternate between lavishing attention on her, and screaming at her for no reason at all. In the world outside, she continually grew more frustrated by the disparity between most people’s claims and what they actually were. She became a rather odd wild child, rebellious and yet determined to study and get out. Then, when she was fourteen, her power began to show. Not to her of course, but to the mages that passed her by she burned inside with magic. She herself began to be aware of her sight, perceiving the supernatural instinctively where others did not.
She began having strange, vivid dreams. One day she woke up to see shadows crawling down the walls, and with a distinct, almost warning sense in her mind that she should run. She got her sister – who she loved dearly - out of the house through the back window and they ran blindly into the night. After a little while they ventured back, everything seemed normal but Aurelie knew that something was very wrong. She started to realise that some of her friends were being possessed, one after another. Then she went home to find out her entire family had disappeared – they had been taken away.
She ran out again, only to have her friends attack her, trying to capture her for what reasons she did not know. Miraze found her. She told her about the Black Mages, that she had been fighting another Black Mage for her because she was a Spell-link. She told her that her family were being held captive but that they would be kept safe until she released them. What finally swayed Aurelie, however, were the simple words that Miraze told her.
‘I will not lie to you.’
Aurelie made the pact. She doesn’t truly agree with the Black Mage ideology, but she does understand it. She believes people should be free to make their own choices, even though she admits to herself that sometimes she, too, secretly feels that most people are stupid and need control. She thinks that magic should be kept secret because if it’s discovered the masses will freak out and religious zealots will try to lynch them...but she also believes that people should know the truth. She respects that Miraze has limits and hopes she can be there to convince Miraze to act differently if there’s a better way of doing things.

Vlad's eyes widened. Then he chuckled, then laughed, and cackled, while clapping. "Oh god. Well done, girly. I admit, I see why you would say that. Thing is though, dear, that I never considered myself a knight. I'm more of a heroic sociopath. Hell, unless you have a strange fantasy, I won't seem like your prince charming, either. Now, tell me. If I was bullshitting you, why did I keep Satosha alive? Yeah. But, in a way, I suppose you're right. The whole 'I'm better than you' thing, is how all guys act. Especially in this day and age, in this town, where you have to go all abracadabra on someone to stay alive. The point is, I may be a decent guy, but why I was taunting Zador is because that's how I was raised. If you think I'm a creepy mage, just wait until you meet my brother.

And second, I don't go flaunting my dark and brooding past to get girls. Believe me, if I did, I would also not be as forward as I am, now. Truth is, I haven't dated someone in like, two years. I didn't come over here to get some ass. I came over here to say hello. While, yes, granted, you two are pretty, I'm not gonna stoop done to the level that sparkly, pale prick in that crappy romance novel is on. If I wanted to impress you, I would've done something much more flashy." He chuckled.

Klaus stepped between them. "Stop. Both of you." He growled. "...Wha?" Vlad asked, surprised. "Vladimir, she has a valid point. I believe that you are insecure. And, even if you did do something dangerous, it would not be the best idea to make it as public, unless asked to." He said, and then he turned to Aurelie. "You, fraulein, are acting equally as childish. Someone, it doesn't matter if they are male or female, black mage, white mage, or mage at all took some time out of their day to greet you. And, to thank them, you ask them many different questions, as if you assumed that they would kill you on the spot. Like you have heard the other ones do. Excuse me, but that is as bad as quickly changing your act to impress different people. If you didn't go by the stereotype all the time, perhaps you wouldn't be so ridiculously skeptic. When someone offers their help, you should consider it, not put them down and act like you are better then them, the exact same thing you accused Vladimir of doing, when you, yourself, are guilty of it as well. Quite frankly, I find the most mature one here, to be your friend, fraulein. Your partner." Klaus continued, arms crossed.

"Well then." Vlad said after a short silence. "I suppose he's right."

Vlad raised an eyebrow. "I let Satosha live because I admire the damn guy. It would be a waste to kill him. And the most important reason. Standards. My standards. Because he did not do anything wrong. I didn't kill him." Vlad retorted. He looked over to his partner, who had his arms crossed, staring Aurelie down.

"You have a valid point about our reputation, though. And this, is in fact, coming from the serial killer. And, granted, you are also correct about some of the things my partner said. However, you should know that he has a dark sense of humor, and has, in fact, stayed true to his moral code." Klaus said.

"Klaus, I appreciate your effort to back me up. But, obviously, they don't trust us." Vlad said, turning. "So, we best be on our way. Thanks for listening, Miraze and Girl Who Forgot to Introduce Herself." He teased Aurelie. "Oh, and one more thing." He said, taking a pen and paper out of his pocket, writing on it, and giving it to Aurelie, with a sly grin. "This is where I live. Klaus'll probably hang out here, too. When you get a chance, stop by and keep me company." He chuckled. "Auf weidersehen." Klaus said, as they both disappeared in a black cloud of magical smoke.

Miraze stared at Aurelie before starting to laugh. "Really, Aurelie? You thought I didn't notice the subtle 'Divide and Rule' that went in there? I wasn't actually saying your reaction was immature, but merely the way you phrased it was hilarious. Besides, why would I think high school kids are immature? I'm one myself, right?" she grinned. "And I have never thought of you as immature either, or even myself as more mature. But I do believe them, you know why? Its because of one of the reasons you dislike them. They - or at least Vlad - has a big ego. Those with big egos tend to live up to their promises, because they are afraid to fail to deliver, they need to keep playing up to their 'code' or 'standards'. If he promised us he won't attack us, chances are that with his convoluted sense of 'honour', he won't resort to it unless the situation is drastic. That's also the exact reason I gave him my name, to show him I trust them. They probably won't betray someone's 'trust', it would be 'beneath' them to do so."

She stretched, still smiling. "But anyway, my job was done by the time you started, and it was pretty funny to hear you bash them to dust. Call me sadistic, but it was nice to see someone saying the things I couldn't say outright. At least, not yet, in this state. Also, if you had challenged him to a sparring match, even with no disintegration allowed, we would still suffer more damage than we can afford, even if we managed to win, which, at our current state, would require a more than a little effort. Its better to hold off for a more opportune time, and its not like they could find us out, anyway, I entered us under a different name after that encounter, and took care of Mr. Davis." she finished - the man who rented them their apartment had been surprisingly susceptible to the illusion, weak-willed and unresisting, which was why Miraze hadn't needed Aurelie's help for that.

"Now how do we explain this?" she asked, pouting a little as she looked down at the car. "Looks like I'll need to break into my hair dye money again." She had actually liked the colour purple when she first dyed it this colour years ago on a whim, partly because she was curious and partly so people were sufficiently freaked out at her strange hair colour and left her alone in peace, and even though now she almost always wore some kind of a hood or cap that almost - if not fully - covered it, it had grown natural to her, and she saved off a little money for the next time she would need to dye it every time she went out on a 'job'. "... maybe we should take jobs or something." she muttered, the idea not appealing to her in the least. With her education, the only job she could get would be a waitress, or something equally horrendous, where she would be expected to be in public constantly. And while Miraze could manage that, the thought alone made her want to gag.
