Kamiki Naruno's Story

The young girl known as Kamiki wandered through the town, grinning broadly as she went, holding in one hand a flyer for recruitment for a nearby, rather new, mage guild, and just the kind of place she was looking for, a place that might have the kind of resources she needed to find the certain person she was looking for. As she finally found the building that housed the guild she sought to join, she could tell from the noise it was pretty lively, which made it all the better, more people was always better. Kamiki waltzed right into the front door, despite all the noise, she managed to stick out like a sore thumb, why? because she was munching away on a large chunk of tree bark as if it were candy.

She looked around for someone who looked important, trying to pick out the guild master, but when this failed, she merely went to the only person she saw who seemed to alone for the time being, an older woman, and one who didn't seem to be in a very good mood, though Kamiki failed to notice the latter part. She went right up to her, "Hi there! I'm Kamiki, i wanna join the guild, do you know where the guild master person is? i'm super strong and-" she began cheerfully before cutting herself off, pausing for a moment, sniffing the air a bit, "wow lady you stink like booze, have you been drinking? are you drunk? i thought you weren't supposed to drink this early? or did someone splash you with something? you look like you don't feel good? you're not sick are you?..." she rambled on as she had a tendency to do, completely oblivious to how annoying she might be

Oliver Laece
{Storm Shield Guild Hall}


Oliver was carefully handpicking a job from the board when her silent pondering got rudely interrupted by none other than the guild master herself.

A good morning to her, too.

Although from the looks of it Valerie didn't seem to be in a particularly savory mood, as noted by the sincere grump in her walk. “Poor bastard who'd dare tumble with that.” Not Oliver at least.

How delightful it was to have their beloved guild master on the scene, and how happy Oliver was to have someone around who could quelch the obnoxious, rampant bravado of less civilized mages that, quite frankly, was making her head throb. Obviously, this wasn't supposed to be normalcy with guilds, but Oliver knew better than that because she's seen plenty of times (mages were rambunctious by default, apparently) the collective nature of a bunch of twats flinging twinkly stars at problems for a job.

Then again, she was one of those twats, only less chatty about her pretend-badassery of her previous job and simply moving on to the next big thing. Not that Oliver's pickings were exactly worthy of becoming a windbag. Helping an old lady water her herb garden wasn't exactly B-class worthy, right? So... no bragging warranted.

No no no. That was left for an unlucky green one who thought rambling about her greatness against Miss Krone was a, quote on quote, good idea. It wasn't difficult for Oliver to notice that this special snowflake wasn't quite familiar with the guild or its mistress.

“Iron fist in three, two, one...” Oliver recited from memory like receiving a mouthful from Valerie was the highlight of her day. And in fact, it was so long as some other poor sod was one the receiving end. As such, she felt no rush to interfere with the kid meeting the guild master at her worst and resumed her musing on what job she'd pick next.

A difficult choice indeed...

Tatsuo busted the door to the guild hall wide open with a strong kick rather then just open it like a normal person. He walked in like he owned the place, not paying mind to the people already there. Tatsuo took a empty seat at a full table. He leaned back in the chair, and propped his feet up on the table, barely even noticing the four men that were already there. The men looked at each other in confusion, a little surprised by the small dragon slayer's disregard for them. Soon a fifth man came to the table holding several drinks.

"Hey punk! That's my seat!" The man said as he slammed the drinks down on the table. "My heart bleeds for you. Go bother someone else." Tatsuo replied, not even looking at the man. "What chu say?! Look at me when I'm talking to you Shrimp!" The man demanded as he shoved Tatsuo's feet off the table. Tatsuo jumped up out of the chair, and the two engaged in an intense stare down. "What did you call me asshole?" Tatsuo asked, his golden eyes not straying from his eyes. "Shrimp. What are you gonna do about it?" The man said and he poked him on his forehead.

"Thought so." Tatsuo smirked. He then gave the man a bone shattering kick to his right knee. This brought the man down to his knees, and below Tatsuo's eye level. "Who's short now bitch?!" Tatsuo asked before he punched the guy in his face, sending him flying across the room. The four other men jumped up from their chairs, and stared Tatsuo down. "Ass kicking's for everyone!" He smirked as he gripped on his red cloak's left sleeve. The man closest to him on his left charged forward at him. And all Tatsuo could do is laugh.

Tatsuo quickly took his cloak off, and threw it at the man, covering his head. While he was getting it off Tatsuo leaped forward, and kicked him in the chest, sending him flying off. One of the men gave Tatsuo a bear hug from behind as another one came forwards towards him. Tatsuo kicked the man coming towards him in the knee, and slammed his head into the nose of the man holding him. The man let go of him, and Tatsuo grabbed his right arm, and tossed him into the other man in a judo-like fashion.

Tatsuo looked over at the last man who had a terrified expression on his face at this point. "All yours pal!" He said, and then ran off. "Smart man." Tatsuo said as he picked up his cloak, and dusted it off before putting it back on. He took his seat back, and leaned back in it, and put his feet up like before, acting almost like nothing happened. He then noticed the guild master coming down after all the commotion that Tatsuo caused died down.

Then a girl came into the guild, while normally he wouldn't even notice unless she was drop dead gorgeous, but this one was chewing on tree bark. She went over to the guild master, who it seems she didn't know was the guild master. She peaked his curiosity, so he nonchalantly moved back some of his hair behind his ear so he could better listen in on them. Sometimes having dragon-like senses was a blessing.

He heard her start to say something about being really strong before she seemed to lose her train of thought, and began talking about Valerie's smell. Well it was a rather strong one, even he could smell it from here. But back to the point, her starting to say something about being strong, and her eating tree bark pretty made a light blub go off in his mind. 'Is she a dragon slayer?'

Fadil just returned to the guild hall. He had been gone for a couple of weeks on a rather challenging S-Class mission. He entered the hall with a air of intimidation, and respect to him. He scanned the room until he found the guild master with a unfamiliar girl. He walked over to them, with his eyes trailing around the guild, studying everyone there.

He came up to the table Valerie was sitting at, and plopped down a rather large bag of jewel. This was onver half of the reward he got for completing his mission. He usually gives a rather large cut of his profits to the guild master to help keep the guild hall afloat. He gave Valerie a nod that said 'That everything went well'.

He stared at the unfamiliar girl, towering over her. He studied her face, and her entire body with a look like he was staring into her very being. All without saying a word. It was more then a little unsettling.

Yui Kuroshio

Yui was sitting at a dark table near a corner of the guild hall, watching all the goings on around the guild. In her hands was a small shadow she was playing with absentmindedly. Yui watched the new girl as she spoke to the guild master, chewing on what Yui thought was some sort of candy. Then suddenly Tatsuo barged in the guild hall, that stubborn ass, and proceeded to beat up a bunch of people just because he's insecure. 'I swear, Tatsuo is gonna kill someone eventually' Yui thought to herself.

Yui's attention shifted back to the girl talking to the guild master, something about her seemed strange and Yui's curiosity got the better of her. No one noticed as Yui melded into the shadow on the wall behind her, and slowly moved across the room towards the guild master and the new girl. Of course Yui could have just walked up to them both to see what was going on, but that would involve speaking to someone Yui didn't know, and that wouldn't go as well. Finally she had made it close enough to hear, but hopefully far enough to not be noticed, considering she was just a shadow on the floor at that point.

Stepping out of her bedroom into the living room, Rin spotted the bag on the table that contained The jewel from her most recent job, and winced. She had gotten back into town the day before but had decided to go straight home, having wanted to finish her most recent piece of work. Of course, that wasn't the only reason she had avoided the guild hall the night before. In large part it had to do with the certain guild member she liked to avoid, though she had been trying to hide the fact from Kiku.

"Maya why haven't you turned the guild's cut into Val yet?" Wincing, Rin turned to see a middle-aged woman with a tail and a bright smile with which Rin returned with a sheepish smile of her own. After a moment Rin raised her hands to reveal her paint covered hands to Kiku. Sighing, Kiku grabbed a rag from the coffee table and tossed it at Rin but smiled all the same. "I know you spend all night on that so at least let me see it." Rin giggled, nodded, and caught the rag before turning and leading Kiku out of the living room and through her bedroom. She had chosen her apartment specifically because of the studio room, especially since it was hidden in the back of the apartment. Opening the door to the room a strong smell of paint filled the air and Rin walked forward, waving her hand towards her easle which held still drawing painting of a desert landscape at sunset. The picture's sky was filled with masterfully blended hues of orange, red, and purple, all fading into black at the top which greatly contrasted the whitish-yellow sand. Kiku gasped in delight and grasped Rin's arm tightly. "It looks just like it did when we were in the Forgotten Desert!" Rin rolled her eyes and turned to walk away only to get smacked on the back of the head by Kiku's tail.

"Ow! Kiku!" "Well? Don't you sass me!" "I have to go turn in my cut..." Rin mutters, closing and locking her studio door after Kiku exited the room. "I'll talk to you when I get back after I pick a job." "Aw but Rin we just got back! Why can't we stay for a few days? I mean, you've been in Storm Shield for almost 6 months and you haven't talk to any of your guild mates for more than five minutes." Rin turned to Kiku angrily. "And that's how it'll stay! You promised you wouldn't do this!" Kiku stared at her defiantly. "if that's what you really wanted than why have you spent so much time learning about them? Admit it. You've grown fond of them." Rin turned halfway through Kiku's response and stormed through her room, grabbing the bag of jewel off of her the table as she went past the kitchen on the way towards the door. "This conversation is over." "Maya..." "hello! I'll be back later." For a moment Rinhesitated at the door, too harsh, but as Kiku reached out for her she stepped away and slam the door behind her.

Ten minutes later, Rin arrived at guild hall with the guild's cut and stepped up to the open door with her eyes narrowed, her face otherwise expressionless. I see you stepped through the doorway Rin's attention was immediately drawn to the man that went flying across the room by Tatsuo's hand. Shaking her head Rin looked away from Tatsuo's fighting only to catch a group of people completely stop talking at the sight of her. Instinctively, Rin's I narrowed further up the group before she restriction and turn completely away from them. Spotting the guild master standing with an unfamiliar girl and Fadil Rin immediately noticed Valerie's annoyed and tense demeanor. "Can't be helped..." She muttered, shooting a pointed glare at another group who was staring at her before walking across the guild hall towards Valerie and her entourage. Not wanting to interrupt the guild master Rin stopped a few paces behind Fadil to wait, knowing that handing over the bag of jewel would only take a moment and then she could pick a new job and leave, allowing no chance to accidentally run into... him. Shaking her head Rin focused her thoughts on what she was doing and shot a sharp glance over at Tatsuo hoping he wouldn't start any more trouble while she was in the hall.

{Valerie Krone}
Location: Storm Shield


Valerie stomped down the stairs like the cranky old cow she was and glared around the guild looking for the culprits that woke her from her much needed beauty sleep. She saw many familiar faces looking joyous until they laid eyes on her expression, she also saw a group of boys just ending a brawl, too dumb to see the Guild Master skulking towards them with an unholy glint to her eyes. She stepped on top of a guy already sprawled on the floor and purposely grounded his face into the floor a little with her boot.

Within a silent second she was looming over the first unlucky culprit still standing within her reach. "WHO WOKE ME UP" she hissed venomously. A noticeable shiver racked its way down the bodies of the guilty. Valerie pulled back a fist and launched it into the side of her first victims face. "TAKE THIS YOU ROWDY BRAT!" He shot sideways and disappeared straight out of the window.

Everyone shrunk away as her eyes turned to them. Valerie growled at them all before storming over to her table positioned near the bar. A helpful member rushed to grab her some coffee and headache remedy. Pulling out a smoke she lit it up and took a long pull on it.

"Hi there! I'm Kamiki, i wanna join the guild, do you know where the guild master person is? i'm super strong and-"

Valerie glanced up at the unwelcome spew of words to see a young girl who hadn't been around before. She looked cheerful, disgustingly cheerful. Kamiki paused and seemed to sniff around her before she innocently said "wow lady you stink like booze, have you been drinking? are you drunk? i thought you weren't supposed to drink this early? or did someone splash you with something? you look like you don't feel good? you're not sick are you?..."

Valerie stared down at the table, her face shadowed by her hair and her muscles growing tenser with every word the girl spoke. Her teeth began to clench into a snarl. A large bag dropped onto the table and Valerie glanced up to see a queue had formed to see her already. She was surrounded. Fadil stood at the very front giving her a look that told her his job had gone well.

She looked up at him with pleading eyes. 'Help me.' her eyes screamed. 'Before I smash this entire, pitiful guild into the ground like the butt of a cigarette."

Kamiki Naruno


Kamiki stopped her seemingly infinite series of questions for a moment as Valerie looked up at Fadil, she followed the older woman's line of sight, looking up at the much taller man who was in turn staring at her. Completely unfazed by his otherwise intimidating glare, she smiled up at him cheerfully as she proceeded to introduce herself to him, "hi there! I'm Kamiki Naruno, are you in this guild? do you know the guild master? I want to join too! I'm really tough you know, I've got dragon slayer magic" she says, quite proudly as well, but pauses for a moment, "Oh, but i didn't actually slay a dragon, it's just the name, which is weird... i'm not even close to strong enough to hurt Botanurus, and i'd never want too..." she adds, trailing off into her own thoughts for a moment, she took a few more large bites from the chunk of bark in her hand before she finished it altogether, grinning once more as she managed to put herself back on track, "I can show you too, watch this!" she says taking a step back.

Kamiki held out her arms, baring her fingers like claws as wood sprouted from her fingertips and spread up her arms, creating thick armor over her forearms with large clawed hands, "My wood dragon claws! i can smash rocks pretty easy with these" she says proudly, she then bends over slightly, a large wooden tail sprouting out of her tail bone, "and a tail too! i can also make wings but i can't really fly with them, i can do lots of other stuff too but i don't wanna smash your guild up" she said innocently, her wooden tail curling into a ring on the floor to support her weight as she crossed her legs and sat up on the artificial limb, armored hands clasped on her ankles as she awaited an answer.

Fadil sighed as he looked at his guildmaster, and then to the other mages around them. Why must he always be the adult? 'Wood Dragon-Slayer? Another Dragon-Slayer?' He thought as he watched the new girl, this Kamiki Naruno demonstrate her abilities. "Valerie is our guildmaster." Fadil said in his deep, monotone voice as he pointed out Valerie before them. He glanced over at Tatsuo who was listening in on them. While he was thinking about informing her about Tatsuo, he figured that telling her about him isn't his place. He looked behind him to see Rin waiting to give her cut to Val.

Fadil took the bag of jewel from her, and grabbed his bag. He turned towards the stairs, and started to take the bags upstairs for Val to deal with later. But he was stopped by Oliver who was shoving a bunch of papers in his face. Fadil groaned, and rolled his eyes. He looked over her request of a job. He then looked at her and back at the request. "Alone?" He asked. "Very well. But I suggest taking someone else along. There's Rin, Isis, Syfer, and.....Tatsuo here." Fadil stated.

"And Yui who's hiding in the shadows." He knew his guildmates well enough to know their mannerisms, that and he saw her when he came in, and now she isn't there anymore. He walked on by her, and went upstairs to drop off the bags of jewel. Once he tossed them in Val's room. He returned downstairs, and took his place behind Valerie.

He leaned down beside her, and softly whispered into ear as not to bother her hangover. "It'd probably be a good idea to allow her to join. Given how rare Dragon Slayers are, and since we already have one. Hopefully this one is more.....tamed."

Tatsuo glared over at Fadil, he could faintly hear them him talking to Valerie about him. He stared over at the wood dragon slayer, trying to figure her out. He was wondering if she was a dragon slayer in the same vain as him, or did she actually learn it. He was tempted to go over and confront her about it, but it'd probably be a bad idea. Maybe just avoid her? Doubtful, but it never hurts try.

Well, he can't sit there, and do nothing all day. He could, but that would be boring. Tatsuo took his feet off the table, and got up. He went over to the job board to find something to do. He scratched his chin as he looked over the jobs. He was looking for the toughest, and most dangerous job on the board. His eyes kept glancing over at Kamiki, he tried his best not to, but he was just too curious about her.

Isis Arcidia


The flurry that was Isis' pen as she began taking notes of her prized map of sorts came to a screeching halt as the grouchy guild master took her moodiness out by sending some unfortunate soul through a window. An excited, giddy voiced broke her determination to continue writing as some bizarre mage somehow managed to change her body with wood-like properties..the faint word dragon slayer reached her ears as Isis put the quill down with a sigh. If the guild were to get another dragon slayer mage as reckless as Tatsuo..the guild would fall into disarray faster than a shooting star in the sky..unless this mage wasn't as rash as the blonde. Speaking of the blonde as her luminous eyes glanced over at earth shifting hothead who seemed to attempting to starve off any urges to start a brawl by staring blankly at the job board.


Easily rolling up the fragile piece of paper with a delicate touch and safety stowing it away in a small satchel as Isis found herself standing next to Tatsuo who was attempting to be inconspicuous with his glances of the chatty visiting mage. Her eyes searched the board as a few jobs popped out to her..escorting a surveying team through a mountain pass known for bandits, find the latest lost pet, and to her surprise a simple waitressing job. Why would someone need a mage to waitress for a simple mission. A faint blush rose on her face as she read the description of the required uniform..something gloriously frilly and elegant..perhaps one could keep it if they did well enough. Exhaling loudly as she quickly put the mission paper back from where it was located as she glanced over at the curious Tatsu before stating "You know, most people are able to introduce themselves to strangers with a polite hello..or I suppose in your case given your usual entrances as fist to the face. Although I think our new guest could easily take you on if given the chance..". Her tone was relatively blunt as it was painfully clear her fellow guild mate was having a dilemma..to punch or to not punch that is the question...

Reaching for the escorting mission as she returned to her original seat at the bar and began her own dilemma of if to go on the mission alone or seek out a partner..it would be either a hinderance or blessing to have back-up on a unknown mission such as this one..

Tatsuo's eyes widened as Isis talked to him about this new dragon slayer. 'Is she saying I'm weak or something?!' was the only thought in his head. He repeated her words over, and over. And to his insecure mind she was basically saying that she's the better dragon slayer then him. The more he thought about it, the more looked too much into her words. 'She's a damn Celestial Mage! What does she know about fighting! I can eat rocks like they're biscuits!' He thought to reassure himself. He then turned to her to respond, but she was gone.

Tatsuo marched over to the woman, pissed beyond reason. "Hey Keychain! You trying to say she's better then me?! I'm the goddamn Komodo, the best damn wizard in this joint!" Tatsuo asserted, not caring who heard. "You don't know a thing about fighting! You're just a Celestial Mage! You send your ghost thingamajigs to fight your battles." Tatsuo stated to get a rise out of her. "You want me to say something?! I'll say something so hard that it'll rip the goddamn walls off!" Tatsuo growled, as if he was challenged.

He turned around to face the other dragon slayer, with unreasonable anger swelling up. He marched over to the table, and slammed his hand loudly on the table. "What the hell you old harpy?! You trying to replace me or somethin'?" Tatsuo asked Valerie. "One incredibly badass Dragon Slayer ain't enough for you? You've got to have a useless one for what, kicks? She uses wood for god's sake! How useful can that be?!"

Fadil stepped forward, towering over the Earth Dragon Slayer. He gave him a combo of a glare, and snarl, one that said 'Back off'. Tatsuo returned the favor with a snarl of his own. "Whatever! I'm need something to punch!" Tatsuo growled before he turned away. Then the soft voice saying 'Dragon' reached across his ears. He turned to see several mages gathered at a table.

He strolled over there, and glanced over to see a job request that said 'Dragon'. A sly grin crept across his face. 'Perfect.' Tatsuo yanked the flier away from them without warning. "Huh....probably just a Wyvern or some crap. Might as well go beat the tar out of it." Tatsuo proclaimed. "Thanks, I got this! It's better to leave this to the GOOD wizards. Well, that'd just be me huh?" Tatsuo boasted. This'll show them who's the best Dragon Slayer!'

At the words "dragon slayer" Kamiki instantly forgot about both Fadil and Valerie and turned towards the one yelling so much, it wasn't hard to spot Tatsuo from the crowd with how loud he was. Kamiki hopped down from her wooden tail, her tail and claws she'd grown fading back into her as she rushed over to the short blonde who'd so easily caught her attention. She grabbed onto his arm and excitedly hopped up and down, "no way you're a dragon slayer too?! that's so great! What stuff do you use? I'm a wood dragon slayer, i'm really good with my magic too, except this one technique i still haven't mastered yet but otherwise I'm really good!" she began, once more rambling on just as she did at first with Valerie, however this time she caught herself earlier, without someone else catching her attention first.

"Oh wait wait important stuff first. Where's your dragon? is he still alive? or was yours a girl dragon? what's a girl dragon look like? oh wait no can't be distracted, see Botanurus, that's the name of the dragon i was with, he even raised me and stuff, and then he just disappeared one day and i couldn't find him..." she says, trailing off, looking downcast suddenly, letting go of his arm as she looked down toward the floor, "i... i just wanted to find him... but no matter where i looked there was no sign of him, i hoped... joining a guild might help me..."

Isis Arcidia


The bored expression of Isis's face did not even twitch as the hot-headed mage let out a stream of hissy words and let in a few choice insults towards her own magical ability. Yet like a gust of wind as soon as the blonde mage appeared, he soon turned towards his next target. Unconsciously, her hand had drifted toward her keys kept secured by a metal ring around her waist attached to her belt..interesting. It was true that she wasn't as experienced in close-combat as her accuser, but she wasn't the type to let her emotions dictate her actions which could lead to many poor actions in a fight and result in unnecessary injuries not just for the emotional idiot but to others.

Her eyes widened as Tatsuo flung another choice set of words toward two mages that could easily skin him alive within seconds..the Guildmaster and her relatively quiet unofficial second in command. A smirk came to Isis's face as the blonde backed off quickly after dropping his word vomit on them and ripped an unfortunate flyer off the mission board with ferocity..and it seemed catch the other dragon slayer's eye who naively or was eating a tad too much wood for her brain cells to keep up.

Running a hand through her hair, Isis carefully moved her way towards the Guildmaster and Fadil and asked softly "So..please tell me this wood dragon slayer is able to control herself without flying off the hand like our Tatsuo. Then again she should be able to help replace the furniture unlike that rock munching moron..". A bit of concern slipped into her voice as her eyes darted from the violate Tatsuo to the rambling mage "Should we tell her that Tatsou is the type that doesn't play well with others...".

A single finger traced the grey surfaces of her three keys on her belt as if to sooth them at Tatsuo's earlier words. With Anguilla being the most ticked given the small shocks that came from the key at each passing stroke. While Ramus and Aranea being more so annoyed at being called 'ghosthingies.." there was a distinct difference between Spirits and ghosts thank you very much.

Oliver Laece
{Storm Shield Guild Hall}


In the incompetence to not let anger get the better of rational judgement, maybe it wasn't the best decision to trample over several people who'd break your arm with one hand if given reason. Now, this kid had a trying day already; Gaining near centre of attention only second to the blockhead proclaiming 'King of the Hill'-status.

Adding theft of her group's property to the growing list of negatives hadn't exactly done favours for the afternoon, but on a one to ten scale this was perhaps paling by comparison to everything else. Or Oliver's disinterest combined with all the little annoyances had made this day come full circle – Like, maybe this got blown out of proportions it's difficult not to laugh at the hardships that followed when she was ultimately the butt-end of someone else's insecurities (and not even kindly thanked for the help, the upstart cunt)'Fuck it. Might as well make the most of this.', apparently. Somehow the realisation had amused her, when she offhandedly decided to stick around for hilarity's sake. It certainly beats flicking cashew nuts at people, because Oliver was rather desperate if nothing else at present and mindless acts seemed to become increasingly enticing.

Right, right. Job to do, and it probably didn't come over too well that Oliver was dawdling in her walk, which led to creeper boy (freak more like) beating her to the punch and tossing out some half-hearted threat. 'Harr bloody harr...' There was a dragged out sarcasm ringing in the back of her head, like Monster Inc. was in the position to be pre-judging. Although Oliver had to stifle a laugh when she was asked to be the pack leader almost immediately after fairly grounded accusations.

“Says the one with an S on his forehead.” Well, metaphorical 'S' for stupid. “Besides, the angry midget's got our flyer now.” Her eyes callously went to the half-pint having a warm reunion with his magic-twin, and for a moment Oliver's thoughts drifted off into several unpleasant scenarios.

Deciding that she could as well add to the pile of extraneous side-kicks (you can never have enough meatshields, amirite?), Oliver placed a foot between the two dragon slayers and deftly yanked the flyer out of minuscule hands. A cold stare glanced at the much shorter boy before promptly offering; “Hey, shorty,” Adding fuel, are we? “Is your girlfriend joining us, or do you need a moment to say goodbye?”

Tatsuo was caught off guard by the new dragon slayer as she grabbed his arm, and started jumping up, and down. 'What the hell? Is she a dragon slayer, or a rabbit slayer?' Tatsuo thought to himself, noting her hyperactive nature. "Get off me you weirdo!" Tatsuo ordered. When she finally stopped she began talking about her dragon, which she seemed sad about. 'Well, she is the real deal.' He started to become nervous, he wasn't sure if she was going to start crying or what. He's not quite sure that he could deal with that.

'Crap, what was the dragon's name? It started with a R didn't it?' Tatsuo pondered within his mind about the name he gave his fake dragon daddy. "Um...I'm a Earth Dragon Slayer.....uh.....my dragon's name was Rocirus." Tatsuo stated as he ran his fingers through his hair. What was he going to do if she got into the guild? He can't keep up this lie forever, and with her being a true dragon slayer he doubts that she'll let him be. "He....uh....disappeared a couple years ago." Tatsuo said, obviously uncomfortable with this subject. "Look, just drop it ok? I don't know a thing about this Botanurus." Tatsuo growled, trying to be as un-Tatsuo as he could. He had no clue why he's trying to be nice to her, maybe because she's a dragon slayer as well? Who knows.

They were then interrupted by Oliver. Tatsuo's face turned red when she called Kamiki his girlfriend, but soon it boiled over with rage when he realized she called him Shorty. "Watch your goddamn mouth! I've slapped a bitch for less!" He snarled with a special amount of anger. He was already unhappy about this new dragon slayer, and with her calling him short was just icing on the insecure cake.

"She's not my girlfriend!" Tatsuo made sure to point out as he retook the flyer. He had to make sure they wouldn't leave him behind. "I gotta make sure you guys aren't dumb enough to leave behind the best wizard here, rookie. And she's NOT coming! She's not a member of the guild!" He added as he gave Oliver an angry shoulder bump as he walked past her, and making sure she remembered that he was a class ahead of her. "Let's go Butch." He ordered, obviously referencing the fact she goes by a boy's name.

He walked past the other two, and towards the exit. "Let's go lackeys!" Tatsuo demanded. To add a bit more flare he punched a hole in the wall next to the door. "NOW!"

Kamiki Naruno


Kamiki rather reluctantly allowed the other dragon slayer to leave her behind, "hm.... he's busy now... oh well, i can wait till he gets back" she thought, cheering herself up a little, "And if his dragon disappeared a couple years ago then that's a lot later than Botanurus did... maybe there'll be more of a trail to follow... hm..." she thought, briefly attempting to come up with a plan before dismissing the idea, after all dragons don't exactly have to walk along roads to get where they want and a couple of years is more than enough time for a trail to go cold. So instead she turned back towards the interior of the guild again only to stop, her face taking a puzzled expression, "wait... what was i doing again?" she thought out loud, "i was... talking to someone.... oh right!" she exclaimed as she recalled. "I was talking to the drunk lady and the big guy" she thinks aloud as she swiftly returns to the table Valerie and Fadil were at.

"Sorry sorry i got distracted, you know that guy's name right? i wanna make sure to remember him for when he comes back" she said hurriedly, "oh and i still wanna join the guild! I don't even need a lot of money, i already made my own little house a little ways outside town and i'm really good at foraging and hunting, Botanurus taught me lots of good survival things" she says proudly with a broad grin, "especially since you know, i can eat wood, i wish you could do the same thing, tree bark is really tasty you know, it's like um... kinda like beef jerky but really crunchy" she says, beginning to trail off yet again

Amaya "Rin" Miyuzaki
After Fadil took her cut Rin went to head over to the request board but stopped a moment to watch the new girl display her magic to Valerie and Fadil. Narrowing her eyes, Rin lifted hit chin, turning up her nose at the outrageous and uncalled for display of magic. Remembering the girl's face and name Rin finally turned and headed towards the request board, walking across the Guildhall and tuned out the events going on around her. As she reach the board she heard Fadil say her name and almost turn to work but just assumed he was talking to Valerie and ignored it.
Looking over the requests Rin saw a few asking to complete every day tasks and rolled her eyes, looking pass them without a second glance. When she spotted the maid request Rin almost growled, disdain showing plainly in her eyes. 'What a disgrace. Any wizard who takes that request doesn't deserve to be called a wizard at all...' she thought as she turned away from that side of the board. Before she could look over the requests again Rin heard Tatsuo shout, "Hey Keychain!" causing her to look over her shoulder quickly, her glare ice cold but as he continued she realized he was talking to Isis and rolled her eyes both at him and at herself.
Just wanting to pick a job and we really started to turn back to the board but stopped as her eyes fell on Syfer. Quickly glancing away from him she looked her over who was walking next to him, hurting her eyes red stared intently the board as she listen to the slowly growing party of people going on the dragon job. Hearing Tatsuo and Oliver exchanging 'pleasantries' Rin smirked a bit.
Suddenly noticing a request on the board about a group of dark wizards acting like bandits she grabbed The paper off the board. After casting a quick side glance at Syfer, turned on her heels I'm headed over to the table where Valerie, Fadil, and now the annoying wood dragon slayer all were. As she approached the table Rin kept a slight distance, not wanting to interrupt Fadil and the guild master's conversation with Kamiki.

{Valerie Krone}
Location: Storm Shield


Valerie practically had flames coming out her nostrils when Tatsuo slammed a fist down on her table. Calling her an Old Harpy was the tip of the iceberg.

"I'd replace you in a heartbeat you gobby little brat!" she growled. The young dragon slayer wasn't listening apparently though as he turned his back on her and stalked off. Valerie lent heavily over the table and opened her mouth to spew an array of obscenities after him for turning his back on her but Isis had already hoped into his grave. Valerie slowly sat back in her seat, took a deep breath and smoothed back her hair.

She turned her eyes on Isis after another guild member brought her a coffee as a peace offering. Valerie wasn't ignorant to how sticky and poisonous Isis could be. "Perhaps if you stopped spinning your malevolent webs around him he wouldn't be half as bad love" she replied in her softest passive-aggressive tone. She even put a sticky sweet smile at the end. "Now run along and make some money."

The mention of money caused Valerie to remind herself of something that instantly sent her blood pressure through the roof. Her sharp eyes darted past Isis to the other members buzzing around the guild.

"Syfer!" she called out. "I know you're in here!"

She quickly sort out the individual she was looking for as he tried to hide pathetically. It made her blood boil even more. Was he sneaking out again? She stood from her seat and moved around her desk. "I've got a bone to pick with you!"

Guild members were quickly parting way for her as the raging Guild Master stomped towards the group Syfer was hiding among. He was saved by the crash however when Tatsuo decided to use the wall right next to the door as an exit. Her mouth gaped open as she laid eyes on the damage. The coffee cup in her hand shattered from an angry squeeze. "TATSUO!!!!"

Almost as if something otherworldly was pushing her to the very edge, the Wood Dragon Slayer popped up in front of her once again rambling on about the taste of tree bark. Valerie pushed a palm again her pulsing temple and closed her eyes. "Yes! You can join the guild. Just. Stop. Talking."



{Maris Monroe}
Location: Approaching Storm Shield.



Through the haze of late morning activities in the town market walked another member of Storm Shield. Slowly, members of the Guild had been filling up the town to the point where the locals actually began to notice. Some whispered of Storm Shields recent epic fails as the particular member walked by. A few others townsfolk pleasantly waved and the odd few swooned.

She was sporting her usual get up and most went a little gaga over a spot of bare flesh. Of course her entire midriff was on show along with miles of leg. Drool and disapproving looks were something she was accustom to thanks to her preferred style. Not many could do what she does in a floor length frock.

Maris waved and nodded at everyone all the same as she swaggered through town like she owned it. The attention grabbing hammer that had received its fair share of gossip rested heavily upon one of the blond's petite shoulders.
Another job complete through sheer clobbering, Maris hadn't intended to crush her opponents but sometimes she was heavy handed. At least she had taken the time to visit the gang of small time mages and ex-thieves in hospital with some flowers in hand. Part of her said not to bother, after all it was their fault they were in such a predicament, pretending to be a mystical monster of the village lore in order to rob and steal. Despicable.

She paused to buy an apple before continuing down the lane that led to the beat up old guild she belonged to. It was embarrassing returning to the shabby shack of a building, she would have hoped one of the ten wizard saints would have better taste in architecture and maybe a bit of money to spare but that was before she actually met Valerie. Stingy tight wad of a woman with a love of booze and gambling.

As she approached the guild Maris pulled her hood off just to double check there really were two doorways now. Yes and no, someone had bashed a hole in the wall and she didn't need three guesses to know who as Tatsuo and an odd match up of mages exited the guild hall.

"What have you done now you idiot? Maris mused as she swung her hammer round once. Her bright blue eyes took in the other faces lagging behind the dragon slayer and wondered what kind of job had brought them all together. Not one she wanted to be involved in that was for sure. What could be worse? A suspiciously reserved celestial mage, a loud mouth and a cynical laze who would sooner sell her own mother then think about another before herself. Oh and then there was Syfer.

Maris tucked a piece of her blond hair behind her ear and smirked. "Well this is a match-up from hell. It wouldn't surprise me at all if the lot of you came back in a match box" she teased whilst sauntering past into the guild using the contemporary door.

Standing in the rubble of the pre-existing wall Maris swung her hammer down onto the floor and held her hands up into the air dramatically. "Baby I'm home!" she called out.

-Kamiki Naruno-


"YAY!!!" Kamiki cheered happily at being a member of the guild, she without the slightest hesitation grabbed Valerie in a tight hug, even lifting the rather obviously angry woman off the ground briefly before releasing her. "Thanks guild master lady! I promise i'll do awesome!" She declared, opening her mouth to say more before managing to stop herself, "Oh right she said stop talking..." she thought, wanting to do her best for her new guild mates now, despite being utterly oblivious to how much she'd managed to annoy Valerie. Without another thought, Kamiki immediately rushed off toward the board she'd seen with all the job postings.

She stopped well before that however, seeing another girl seeming to be waiting for Valerie and Fadil. Kamiki saw she was holding one of the job posters, and eagerly went over to her. "Hi there! I just joined the guild" she said proudly, smiling warmly, her upbeat attitude seeming in rather stark contrast to the others so far, especially her fellow dragon slayer and the guildmaster herself. She glanced down at the paper Rin held, though only to confirm it was in fact a job poster. Truthfully speaking, Kamiki couldn't read very well, something she chalked up to either her amnesia or having been raised in a forest by a dragon. Either way, it was something she typically didn't bother with unless really needed.

"Are you going to do a job? Can i come? I wanna see what a real guild job is like, and i want lots of friends!" she said happily, "oh wait friends know names hehe, I'm Kamiki, nice to meet you" she said with light giggle. She was already a tad too excited to be part of the guild, even she knew that, but that wasn't going to stop her.

A sly grin crossed Tatsuo's face when he heard Valerie angrily scream his name. He'd be lying if he said he didn't enjoy making her angry. And then came another smart ass bitch to yell at him today. This time in the form of Maris. "Bite me Gobby." Tatsuo growled at her. "No ones going to die! So long as they don't get in my way." Tatsuo stated as he folded his arms behind his head. And then came a rookie of the guild, he didn't quite know who she was, nor did he particularly care. He looked at her when she started talking about it not being her day, and how he pissed off Valerie.

Tatsuo just rolled his eyes. "Earth Dragon Wall!" Tatsuo shouted, and then he stomped on the ground, and summoned a large wall of earth. He jumped up, and gave a powerful round house kick that sent it towards the gapping hole in the guild. The wall hit Maris lightly, just enough to knock her down, no more then a push. The wall covered up the makeshift door(though it did break some of the edges of the hole so it could fit). "There you old bat! It's fixed!" Tatsuo shouted into the guild. "Your welcome!" He added.

"There you go Rook! Don't thank me all at once." He smirked towards the green haired girl, and ruffled her hair. Tatsuo turned back to his patch job, and dug his fist into it, and took a chunk of rock out of it. "Alright lackeys let's go! Ass isn't going to kick itself!" He ordered as he took a huge bite out of the rock, and slowly began chewing it as he led the way forward.

Fadil just sighed at all the commotion that was happening, and mentally face palmed. 'Why am I the only adult here?' He wondered. He looked behind him to see Rin, and the latest recruit. He saw that Rin was holding a piece of paper, obviously a job request. He yanked the paper out of Rin's hands, and took a look at it. He then looked at the two girls, and back to the paper. "Very well. Show Kamiki around as well." He ordered. While he known that Rin preferred to be alone, she was the first guildmember in sight, and he had to make sure Valerie doesn't kill anyone. So he has to pawn the girl off on her.

Fadil went over to Valerie, and placed his hand on her shoulder to hopefully comfort her. "He is gone, no use to take your anger out on the others." He whispered in her ear. He took his hand off her shoulder, and gave her a light pat on the back as he walked over to the bar, and grabbed himself a plain glass of water to drink.

-Kamiki Naruno-


Once more, Kamiki found herself distracted from her own attempt at conversation with someone, and by the same person as before, Tatsuo. She noted his display of "fixing" the hole he'd made in the wall and frowned at it. "That's all ugly and out of place..." Kamiki mutters aloud at the sight. Though this time, she at least managed to not run off immediately, turning toward Rin and giving a light bow, "Sorry be right back" she says apologetically. Walking over to the hastily made wall, she examines it for a few moments, before smiling broadly, "I'll fix it great! I'm good at this type of thing" she announces aloud. She cocked her arm back, making a fist, thick wood rapidly sprouted over her forearm, creating a large wooden spike, "Wood Dragon Spear!" she cried over the noise in the room, slamming her arm clean through the center of the wall, "Take root!" she called, suddenly the entire stone wall began to crack and split, soon crumbling down to a pile of rubble, leaving her wooden spear surrounded by a huge web of branching roots.

The roots retract into the spear, which itself soon fades away leaving her arm back to normal as she flexes her fingers a little. Kamiki steps over to the edge of the hole, still grinning, "Easy peasy." She says as she places her palm on the side of the wall near the jagged edge of the hole. A soft green glow emanated from her hand as she poured her energy into the wall, the broken edges of the boards of the wall began to stretch out, growing and repairing themselves as the hole was closed in a matter of a couple of seconds, the only visible sign of any damage that remained was the lack of paint over where Kamiki had repaired the wall. "There we are, all better!" she announced, hurrying over back to Rin, "Ok where were we?" she asks, blinking when she remembers, "oh wait you didn't say anything yet" she says with a playful laugh.

Amaya "Rin" Miyuzaki

"Seems we all want to go out on missions..." Rin slowly turned her head to look at the blonde beside her and after a moment realized she was talking to her. "Although it seems Tatsuo only wants to dig himself an early grave given his horrible attitude towards everyone..." Rin, still surprised someone was talking to her despite her strong vibe of 'Leave me the fuck alone', raised an eyebrow as the blonde, whose name she now remembered to be Isis, snapped her fingers. "Rin...what would you say if I were to propose that we teach Tatsuo a lesson in the power of celestial magic...just so he won't forget that we are mages too..." Suddenly Isis' smile faded and Rin smirked, knowing that she had come to the realization most did after starting conversations with her without thinking about it. "It's just an idea... We would go about our separate ways after teaching him a lesson. I just want him to see that our Spirits aren't weak and we are strong because they CHOSE us to contract with..." the girl spoke in a quieter, uncertain voice now and Rin almost sneered but stopped herself as Valerie started screaming in the direction of Tatsuo and then Syfer.

A moment later Maris stepped through the big hole in the wall and Rin couldn't help but smile at the other woman's glee. "Baby I'm home!" she shouted, causing Rin to chuckle and shake her head. Just as she was about to answer Isis' question, not wanting to be rude by ignoring her completely, she was cut off by the new dragon slayer. "Hi there! I just joined the guild" Rin looked over at the girl slightly surprised but, knowing she was new, just gave her a glare and raised an eyebrow, hoping that her silence would be enough to drive the girl away. "Are you going to do a job? Can i come?... Rin let the girl drone on, letting her own gaze drift to watch Katsumi enter the guild hall until Kamiki stopped talking. "...nice to meet you." As the girl giggled Rin returned to the bubbly brunette and made her glare as cold as possibly. Before she could continue she heard Tatsuo shouting again and watched as he moved a wall of stone into the hole in the wooden wall. Without hesitation Rin face palmed, completely forgetting about Kamiki, and shook her head at Tatsuo's "repair" job.

As the talkative one ran off to fix the wall Rin felt someone yank the job request poster out of her hands and looked up to find Fadil standing in front of her. "Very Well. Show Kamiki around as well." Before Rin could protest Fadil walked off and suddenly Kamiki ran back over. Okay where were we? Oh wait, you didn't say anything yet." Rin, her patience having disappeared by then, turned and pointed a finger at the girl. Looking directly at Kamiki she let her eyes blaze with barely contained anger which had been simmering just under the surface sine she had left her apartment. "Stop talking and listen closely. We aren't friends and we will never be friends. I am going to show you where the girl's dorm is, unless you will be getting your own place, and I will show you where you can and can't go in the guildhall but then I am leaving. If you talk once other than to ask an important question or to answer when I speak to you then I will leave. Once I do leave you will not bug me again and if you do I have no problem ending a fight. Do I make myself clear?

Rin narrowed her gaze to make sure the girl understands how serious she is before turning to Isis, not waiting for an answer and marginally more calm. "If Tatsuo makes a commotion next time we're both here I'd love to help you teach the pup a lesson. I'm sick of his rowdiness. Also, after I leave please make sure Kamiki gets informed who she should and shouldn't bug." With that Rin gave Isis a, very rare and surprisingly friendly, smile before turning her gaze back to Kamiki in the form of cold, narrowed eyes, daring the girl to speak. After a moment of silence Rin spoke in her usual, emotionless tone, all vistages of anger gone or hidden. "Come on, the kitchen is this way." Rin turned and started walking across the guildhall, only once looking back to make sure Kamiki was following.
