Glissia 'Glis' Laine

A short, blue-haired woman who cannot seem to sit still.

0 · 376 views · located in A sparkling world...

a character in “Spring Rain and Havoc”, as played by Marionette

Description

Glissia "Glis" Laine is a nineteen-year-old woman with cream-colored skin and long, pale blue hair. Her eyes are lavender, her lips are thin, and her nose is strong and upturned. She possesses a curvy figure and is about a head shorter than most girls her age.

Abilities: Glis excels in offensive magic, mostly flame and water. She can also levitate small objects. Otherwise, she is not so skilled in magic that doesn’t break things.

Trinket: Glis's trinket is a choker. Her flat, circular glass gem is light blue and hangs from a thin, silver wire.

Personality

Loud and outgoing, Glis is not the type to leave her thoughts unsaid. She has a short attention span and an equally short temper. Although she is lazy, she always gets work done at the last minute.

History

Glis grew up in Mara’s Ridge and has had an uneventful life thus far. For the past four years, she has studied magic under a local mage. Given Glis’s personality, they can bristle at one another, but through perseverance Glis earned her teacher’s respect. In fact, her trinket was a birthday gift from her teacher. Though discouraged by her parents, Glis has always considered joining the Selian military as a soldier mage.

So begins...

The beast swooped down in a flurry of wings. Though it resembled a kangaroo rat, it was bigger than a bulldog, and teal fur bordered a scale-covered stomach. It whipped its tail at Glis. She yelped, leaping and clutching her skirts, and her lavender eyes narrowed. Raising her hand, she launched a fireball toward the rat. The fireball connected, and the rat screeched and thrashed.

But more rats descended, and they weren’t just after Glis. Squealing and slashing, they picked their targets. The market square surged with the clatter of feet – parents snatched their children, merchants gathered their wares, and those who could scattered.

“Leave – me – alone!” yelled Glis. Each time she thrust her hands, blue fire streaked the air. It leapt onto the rats, and the air filled with the scent of singed fur. Her eyes shifted – did anybody else stand a chance? She could see the "flock" crowding around others. She couldn't keep her eyes off her enemy for long, though. Its powerful tail ripped into her dress. Glis screamed and lobbed another fireball. She was too busy to notice, but the gem around her neck began to glow.

Glis spotted the cat-eared stranger just as she disappeared. It now appeared that a pack of rodents gnashed and slashed at empty air, but the glowing gem revealed its wearer's presence. Glancing down at herself, Glis gasped. Her own necklace gleamed just as brightly. Her lapse in attention was rewarded with another tail blow, and she cried out as it knocked her backwards.

Growling, Glis jumped forward and kicked the beast with all her strength. She threw up a wall of rushing water in front of herself. It caught a rat midair, forcing it to the ground. In seconds, the wall dissolved into a puddle, and two rats dove after her, but it gave Glis enough time to dash toward the "floating" purple gem. "Hey!" Glis said, waving, "Whoever you are! Strength in numbers!"

Two town guards brandished swords at any rat they could catch. Several merchants too brave (or perhaps too stubborn) to abandon their carts stood ready with dagger, whip, or even frying pan. Luckily, the rats ignored the latter. Not even the scents of fresh spice cakes or old, strong cheeses lured the rodents from their task.

Otherwise, the crowd in the marketplace thinned out, and Glis had a wide view of the battlefield. As each target fought, rodent corpses began to litter the ground. A few of the living rats cowered, trembling too much with pain or fear to rise from the cobblestone. Still, some continued to fight, and these struck twice as hard, twice as fast.

"Hey!" Glis yelled again, louder this time. Now she hailed anyone that might hear her. "If you have a weird, glowing gem... over here!" A guard tugging his sword from a twitching rodent looked over, and Glis waved. "They want us!" she said.

Glis turned back toward the sparkle of gleaming gems, but a rodent threw itself at her, and she tumbled to the ground with it. Winded again, she grappled with it as the guard charged over. Glis growled like a dog as she threw the rat off. It bounced toward the guard who speared it on his sword. Glis flashed the old man a feral grin before brushing off her dirt-strewn dress and dashing off.

Mew's high pitched squealing pierced the air as she weakly batted at the rodents, feeling them overwhelming her. A large gash on her upper arm bled rapidly and she felt bruises forming on her side. More wounds would come as her strength to fend the animals off withered and her will to keep up her invisibility spell dwindled in kind. Not that it had been much use, the creatures had been alert to her presence the entire time, chasing her glowing gem. Why was it glowing like that?

A part of her wanted to simply take off the gem and throw it away so she could hide from the creatures, but if it was so damned important it had attracted these strange rodents in such a frenzied force, she wasn't going to part with it. It must be valuable...or powerful... probably both. At least she assumed the animals were after the gem. Of all the people the rats could be targeting, it was her and a scant few others. Did they carry gems like that? All this for a stupid gem she'd found lying unwanted in the woods, huh?

It was then that she heard a voice calling out, presumably to her, about safety in numbers. Shortly after that, the same voice yelled out about the rats being after those with the gems. So Mew was correct in her assumptions. She began searching frantically among the commotion for the owner of the voice, darting between diving rodents all the while.

"Mew, mew, mew!" she wailed in panic, her eyes wide with terror. Finally, her eyes locked on a woman with blue hair, a glowing gem at her neck, fighting off the rodents as hard as Mew was. The catling began racing over towards the other woman, resulting in one of the creatures clawing at her back viciously. Mew squealed in pain as blood poured from the open wound.

"What the hell do these guys want? Why are they after the gems?" Mew asked the stranger as she approached her. Mew swiped down another of the rodents after she had finished her sentence, her claws dripping blood. She would need to escape this place promptly and attend to her injuries, especially the one on her back. She wished her brother had taught her some healing spells, that would sure have come in handy right about now.

The other three women approached, and each wore a gem like Glis's. She breathed a sigh but inhaled just as sharply when she spotted the blood streaming from Mew's injuries. "They really don't like you!" she said. By now, Glis too was bleeding through several rips in her dress. It was still in one piece, but it was strewn with dirt, as was the rest of her.

"Okay, okay." Glis ran her hands through her disheveled hair. Now that the four stood in one tight group, the remaining rats rushed them from the corners of the market. The guards cut down a few, but eight remained: three sprinted on the ground, and the rest whizzed through the air. "I, uh, didn't think this far," she said. "Make this count, ladies!"

Drawing on the rest of her strength, Glis flung an arc of blue fire at the ground. It burned in place, extending several feet into the air. Two of the charging rats skidded to a stop just beyond it, but one was unfortunate enough to tumble right into the spray. It flew backward, shrieking and lashing is tail. Sparks from the tail jumped onto one of the rats beside it, causing it to yowl and roll.

The third hissed at the wall of fire and tried to shoot upward, but one wing hung broken. Instead, it sought a way around the arc. Meanwhile, the five airborne rodents never stopped. The flames could not reach them.

OOC: ((HadoukenLSD, apologies if Mew's invisibility spell hadn't worn off yet. I wasn't sure if you meant "fading" as in "becoming visible over time" or "fading" as in "still invisible but won't be much longer." If she is still invisible, just lemme know and ignore the part about Glis seeing her. I'll edit it out in that case. :,D))

Mew nodded her head in answer to the blue-haired woman. "I know! I don't know why these guys wanna hurt me!" she squealed, watching as the woman's fire took out a couple more of the rats, leaving a scant few of the nasty animals to deal with. Well, she was sure that the blue-haired woman, herself and the brunette that had approached could deal with these last few easily.

She turned hurriedly to the other voice that had spoken, the one who knew her real name. Great. Just great. Of all the people in the world to be right here among the chaos, to be carrying a gem as well it had to be Raven. She graced the other thief's question with nothing more then a scoff, turning her attention back to the rats. She would deal with that later.

Hurling her body upward, her talons caught in the flesh of one of the remaining rats which flew overhead, bringing it to the ground shrieking. She tore it's throat out with her teeth, the thought occurring to her that she had killed more creatures today than she would in the average week. Aside from the occasional hunt, Mew was a fairly peaceful catling and rarely found herself in situations where violence was necessary. In her thieving, she was always the type to favor sneaking above direct combat, like most thieves. The blood which soaked her form disturbed her slightly, but she didn't have time for feeling unnerved, not in the heat of all of this.

Withdrawing her dagger, she impaled another of the rodents as it swooped at her, blood pouring from it's body as it twitched and died. Mew checked out the amount of damage she had done, only to meow hysterically as several more of the creatures remained, furious as ever with the four unfortunate women who held these bizarre gems.

Raven smirked when Mew scoffed at her answer, somethings never change. Before Raven could reply the rats attacked the group again well she’ll have to wait then. Twilling her blades in invitation Raven sliced deep into the Rats chest. Not the smartest bunch, are they?

Ripping the blade free Raven prepared for the next attack which came in quick succession with two other rats falling. Raven's wound felt like it was on fire, her muscles aching, she was unused to this type of fighting she was a theif not a warrior after all.

One of the rats let out a shriek turning raven saw Mew ripping her talons out of one of the rats. Raven’s back ached with an old pain, she too had felt those talons and she had the scares to prove it. She almost pitied the rat, almost.

Well at least we got even Raven smirked flourishing her blades.

Raven cursed when she saw the reinforcement, they couldn’t take on that many. Knowing she would regret this later but what choice did she have? “All of you with a gem follow me, I know somewhere we can hide”

Raven turned and ran east into one of the cities backstreets not checking if anyone followed her assuming they would. She could hear the shrieks of the monsters taking another left Raven reached a dead end.

Not pausing raven rushed to the back wall searching frantically ah here we are. Raven slid out one of the bricks in the wall pulling the lever inside, the wall shook slightly then half of it opened. Not pausing for breath Raven ran inside.

They'd better be grateful…

With just a split second to consider their odds, Glis balled her fists at her sides and ran after the stranger. She looked over her shoulder; the rats where busy enough with the flames and the guards that they might have a few minutes. Better yet, the guards might finish them off – she saw them dashing after the rodents even now.

At the opening of the passageway, Glis skidded to a stop. She looked around, biting her lip. There was no telling where this thing led. A squeal in the distance reminded her of one thing: it would probably lead somewhere monster-free. With that, she took a deep breath and charged in after Raven.

"So," Glis said, panting between words, "what is this place?" Her eyes moved from the bloody rips in her clothing to the same in Raven's. "More importantly, any first aid? Maybe we should go to my teacher's place..." As soon as those words left her lips, she cringed. "Oh- oh, great. She's gonna kill me."

Raven rolled her eyes. “Well if you want to run back to her be my guest but good luck getting past those monsters.” Sighing, Raven walked further into the room, it was rather small and musky but it would do.

Rave carefully lit the four small lamps around the room filling the small space with a warm glow. Home. It was a single room; an old bed covered with blankets lay in the far corner shoved against the wall. A rickety shelf lay to the right of the room filled with various (stolen) trinkets tossed carelessly on to it. Raven looked around again eyes flickering nervously to the newcomers. Too late to change my mind now.

Ignoring the women Raven walked over to an old oak chest at the foot of the bed pulling out various garments throwing them at the women. “These should fit, better you were these than them” Raven nodded towards the torn clothes they currently wore “and…if any of you are injured sit on the bed, I can heal the minor wounds or ease any major ones but I’m not a miracle worker”.

Waiting for a response Raven pulled her own bloody clothes of, hissing. She sat carefully on the bed fully aware of the mistrusting looks sent her way. Pulling a deep breath Raven held her right hand over the cuts in her forearm whispering softly. A warm blue glow spread from her hand trickling down her arms healing the smaller cuts and lessening the deeper ones.
A wave of nausea swept over Raven then but she pushed it down looking up at the women she said.

"You should also bare in mind that the amount of magic it will take to heal all of you will cause me to lose consciousness for at least 2 hours. So I must ask why should I heal you and leave myself vulnerable”

I’d really like that drink now.
