Description

Image
Name:
Syfer Reigns
Age:
23
Gender:
Male
Class:
S
Aspirations:
Nothing more. Not much of a leader. Might shot for one of the Wizard Saints one day.
Magic:
Arc of Embodiment is a form of Lost Magic that allows the caster to materialize, and subsequently use to their every whim, anything they can imagine. Any of their creations give them great versatility both in and out of combat. They can range anywhere from everyday objects and weapons to more complex creations, even living ones. These creations are also given special properties that goes accordingly to what they are. The magic does of course have its limitations and Syfer himself has stated that the magic makes it easy for one to trick themselves into believing themselves invincible, but that hubris will be their downfall. Due to its status as Lost Magic, it is rare to find those who employ it.
Strengths:
Experience- Syfer is incredibly adapt at wielding his magic and due to its versatility he has developed and honed skills across multiple ranges and styles of fighting.
Combat- Syfer takes a very cerebral and tactical approach to fighting. He will pick apart an enemy and never wastes any motion doing so. Due to this approach, he is able to formulate plans and strategies on the fly, making him dangerous even if removed from the action. During battle he relies on speed and deceptive strength.

Weaknesses:
Ego- Syfer has been known to let his confidence get the better of him, causing openings and moments for enemies to gain the upper hand.

Fire Type Magic- Due to an event in his past, regardless of how strong he is, Syfer has a near paralyzing fear of fire.

Appearance: Image
Syfer has several tattoos and piercings covering his body. He stands just north of 6'0" with a slim build. He normally dresses very casually, more like someone going to grab a bite to eat than defeat a band of raiders. He wears a black sweater over top a sleeveless white shirt and black pants with normal, black shoes. His most noticeable feature is his black eyes with red iris'. He often jokes that he got them when he challenged a God to a creation contest and lost.

Personality:
Despite his appearance, Syfer speaks in a friendly manner to most people and can often be found teasing other members of the guild. He rarely shows any seriousness. He can be serious when the situation calls for it, but he still maintains a laid-back demeanor during such situations and is never with out a witty taunt or comeback. Syfer can seem at times to be uncaring or even callous, but actually has a very strong sense of justice and prefers to fight fairly. He can be counted on to do the right thing, even if he makes cynical quips about it the entire time. Syfer also enjoys fighting shown when he sometimes does not fight at his full potential so he can toy with his opponent or make a fight last longer. It is known that Syfer gets bored with fighting weak opponents and only finds entertainment in fighting strong opponents who will give him a challenge.

Despite verbally complaining about being in debt, Syfer seems quite willing to perform missions solely for the good of them, and rarely enforces payment from poor clients. In fact, he will typically refuse any job he dislikes, regardless of how much it pays, but will immediately take any that involve the harming of innocents. Many of his clients take advantage of this good nature of his, and leave bills for property damage caused during the mission instead of paying for his services. Syfer has a fondness for pizza, and while he complains about olives, he always ends up with them on his pizza. He is also shown to favor strawberry sundaes as well as pizza with it being pointed out on several occasions that those two foods are all he eats. He has a habit of getting roaring drunk, once mentioning getting so drunk that he proposed to a mop.

ImageHistory:
Syfer was originally the son of the Guild Master of a dark guild, Dread Wolf. He grew up in the guild, being taught how to wield and control magic of defeating any who stood in the way of his father and his guild. Syfer did not know that there was even another option, believing it was simply a rule of the world to crush anyone who stood in your way. When he became a teenager, he took the S-Class test for the guild, passing with flying colors and even defeating older guild members in the process. However, Syfer found his time within the guild to be short lived. Not long after the test, Syfer received a mission from his father. Syfer was to infiltrate a strong and old guild in a town far from their own guild. He was to be a parasite, a devourer who ate away at the guild from the inside. He entered the guild as a wanderer whose guild had disbanded and was looking for a new place to call home. It was there that the plan began to unfold.

This was no short term task and before he knew it, two years had past. He had spent so much time there, he was on the verge of becoming an S-class mage at this place he was meant to bring down. In the beginning, he was carrying out his job like he was supposed to. But, as time past, he had grown attached to the people in his new home, even becoming involved in a relationship with a mage by the name of Elana. The two became close, and Syfer found himself forgetting about the shadow that loomed over him in the dark. While returning from a job with his team, his "evil" eyes widened to see the guild in flames. Members of Dread Wolf awaited the heir outside the destroyed guilds doors. In an instant, Syfer's team members were run through, falling to the ground beside the young man they called a friend. Out of the flames of the fallen guild, Syfer's father emerged, carrying Elana by the collar. The defeated girl looked up, relieved to see Syfer unhurt. In that moment, Syfer's father revealed the true nature of his arrival at the guild and who the man she loved truly was. Even then, Elana struggled in order to distract the Guild Master so Syfer could escape. Syfer's father threw her back into the guild as it collapsed behind him, staring his son directly in the eyes as he did so. Syfer became unhinged and attacked his father, decimating every member of his old guild who got in the way until he reached the man. After a short battle, Syfer was on the ground, bleeding and unable to stand. His father left him there, leaving the scene with those Syfer didn't manage to get his hands on.

He traveled for a few years, fighting dark guilds and evil where he could find it. Before long he developed something of a reputation. No one knew of his origins, but the man they saw was one who did good deeds where he could, so few cared. When he came upon Storm Shield six months ago, he saw potential in the guild to become like the one he forsook his own father for. So he stayed.

So begins...

Syfer awoke to find himself slumped over a trash can in an alley not far from the guild hall. He looked up at the sun, his dark eyes wincing from the brightness. He tenderly stood up and yawned heavily, the hangover from the night before ringing. "This sucks..." he whispered under his breath to no one in particular. Taking a heavy sigh he began walking toward the guild hall, realizing that this was likely only the beginning to a long day. It had been a crazy night, from what Syfer could recall. First he was challenged to a drinking contest at a local tavern, and then things escalated from there to the point he now found himself in possession of more money than he had when he was last sober. This means competitions were won and that was good enough for Syfer. "Let's see. I got back into town after a job. Met up with some people at the tavern and then... Things?" Syfer simply shrugged and came to the conclusion that it was better he didn't know.

Syfer arrived at the guild hall, quietly slipping in the best he could. He was supposed to have reported in yesterday, but that didn't exactly happen as planned. He was already on Valerie's bad side after the damage he did to that village trying to stop the members of a dark guild. He moved as inconspicuously as possible to the bar counter, sitting down on a stool and lowering his head. He did not make eye contact with anyone, nor pay much attention to the goings on around him for fear attention might be drawn his way. He motioned the barkeep for a water and kept his arms high and his head low, his chin resting on the counter. "If I can make it through today, everything should be fine. Just drop the guilds cut on her desk and vanish into the city." Syfer grabbed the glass that had been placed in front of him and took small sips, his eyes darting around in paranoia.

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.

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.

Oliver Laece
{Storm Shield Guild Hall}


Regret. She felt an immediate storm of regret overwhelm what little expectation she had as soon as the colossal man opened his big fat gob, and for a moment Oliver wished she'd have taken her chances with the exasperated guild master instead. Although in hindsight, miss Krone would've given a similar advice.

Guilds had a tendency to take the nature of teamwork to an almost religious devotion, like it was the greatest discovery the world has ever acknowledged to enhance relations. Funnily enough the opposite was true with anxious individuals the likes of Oliver, who deliberately rejected such philosophies. Add her usual lacklustre and brash retorts to that and you can see why this kid never made any friends in high school.

“I'll think about it, sir.” The lie slipped through her teeth so hard it could've broken the grimace that quietly chastised Fadil for his fruitless attempt to persuade. And with the same callous air, Oliver left the scene; a single, unmasked groan emphasizing her discontent at the man's well to-do disposition.

You know, because mister Layth clearly tried his best.

Though the intend didn't hit Oliver before she finally took the chance to skim through the random paper clutched in her hands. And then... a sense of vertigo had her stumble a couple inches back like the mage couldn't believe she had willingly chosen to do this. 'Fuh-uuuuuck...!' Oliver felt nauseous even comprehending the feats required to complete this contract.

Dragon Problem! It read in a blazing, red font. Apparently a farmer family was having trouble with a reptilian pest messing up their crops and cattle, which they clearly dubbed a dragon (yeah, right) even though those bastards would've burned the entire thing to a crisp before any request could be made. Enticing, but unlikely. However intrigued by the challenge, Oliver wasn't keen on the fact that the dubious nature of this task forced her to team up on the off-chance.

She could either jump through another hoop and swap 'round the cards 'too awkward and risky with hatchling numero uno swamping the board', or follow that dreaded suggestion Fadil gave as a bonus.

Fun times, fun times...

A tiresome gaze took notice of the arguably few potential individuals that could help her catch this white rabbit, before finally falling on two passable mages: Syfer and Isis respectably. People that Oliver knew to be at least somewhat capable (from a preference standpoint) and tolerable. Deciding whom to bother, however, was a totally different matter entirely, both seemingly preoccupied with personal affairs; Syfer quietly sobering up from another sterling night out, and Isis fumbling about with something that Oliver couldn't quite make out.

At this point, she kind of figured that, you know, give or take. If neither wanted to help, then obviously this wasn't a good idea and she'd go off on her own. 'Nothing to go on about.' And Oliver was just about to debate the pros and cons of having to be invested in something (for the nth time) when she walked up to the only other S-mage.

“Don't go into cardiac arrest or anything, but... I might need help cracking this nut.” Oh, you clever girl you.

Oliver quietly flung the paper at the recipient; Hands shoved in pockets and a sorta-ish, but not really expectant look beaming at the poor sod buried in his own misery and armpits.

Syfer looked at the glass refill itself in front of him, taking a heavy sigh at how simple such concoctions were to create. He called it "Insta-cure!" a remedy designed to get rid of whatever ails you. In his case it was a hangover. He took a drink and instantly started feeling his headache going away. Syfer would sell it, but for whatever reason when other people drink it they just taste regular water. This phenomenon perplexed his wallet to no end. It would also help with the debt he found himself in on a nearly constant basis. Damn townspeople, can't they just be happy that he slayed the monster? So what if the prized statue of the towns founder was destroyed? Syfer pondered this only a while longer before a figure approached him, dropping a paper in front of him.

Syfer looked up at Oliver, his eyebrow raised. Syfer picked up the paper and looked over the job, clicking his tongue when he finished reading. "Dragon problem. Seriously? These jobs tend to be a waste of time You'd be better of-" Before he could finish his eyes darted across the room to see Valerie, causing him to use the paper to shield his face. "You know what? I'll take the job. Let's just be out of here as soon as possible, shall we?" Syfer continued to use the paper to shield his face, though with how he dressed and his tattoos he didn't exactly blend in. Though he wouldn't admit it, he was never one to refuse a contract when people may get hurt by whatever the job is targeting. "I don't exactly want the boss to know I'm here so if we could move it along that would be great. Unless you want to take anyone else along, I don't really care let's just go as soon as we can." Syfer's eyes shot around the room as he ducked down. Valerie seemed to be in an even fouler mood than usual so he knew to stay away.

Yui Kuroshio


Yui, upon being noticed by Fadil, emerged from her shadow and walked away, no more information useful to her could be gained from sticking around. Another dragon slayer... Huh. Yui thought to herself. As she walked back to her previous seat she couldn't help but overhear Syfer and Oliver talking about the dragon problem job. Yui hadn't taken a job for a while, so she was a bit low on funds. A job would be the most necessary course of action, Yui was hesitant to take one on alone due to her speach problem.

Walking up behind Oliver, Yui tapped her on the shoulder "Uhhh... Hello, I um, couldn't help but hear about... That dragon job... And I um.. Was wondering if, um, I could... Maybe, um.... Come with you?" Yui said, attempting to muster up all the nerve she had to speak. Of course, if Oliver didn't let Yui come with along, than Yui would have to go on a job solo, and that might not be the best option for her. So this dragon job might be the best (and only) option for Yui's future.

No, it's quite alright. You don't have to play along, 'S-class asshole'. Though Oliver was streetwise enough to not voice that particular quip, it wasn't like he knew anyone was going to ask for a boon. Favour for a favour, I suppose. Oh, right... She should probably discuss the share ratios when out of Valerie's blast-radius, an act which Syfer coincidentally had in common with Oliver. A rare treat.

'Scared of the she-Hulk, ha.' She snickered, face and body language morphing from the hesitant maybe scram it while the opportunity is there into less like the suggestion was a terrible idea. Still not comfortable enough to feel like she could let her guard down, that would prove unwise given the chance.

An eyebrow involuntarily arched up. 'What's with S-class and teamwork anyway?' Some kind of prerequisite to ask one on a date? She hoped not... Oliver was astonished that she asked someone at all, let alone take the soapbox and invite the whole Burger King kids club over for dinner at mommy's house.

Then it dawned on a pesky little mouse to interrupt the awkward chatter, in which case Oliver pretended the younger girl had accidentally brushed against the older woman's shoulder – easier to avoid entertaining the small-fries – which conveys the typical 'fuck off' pretty well. Then the mouse began to peep, prompting apathy incarnate to shift its focus; Head turned to catch the child in peripheral vision and a hand nonchalantly brushing strands of platinum from a listening ear (real clever shy-girl).

In the end, well. Oliver wasn't exactly looking forward to bro-ing it up with two people, 'twos company, threes crowd' A third wheel on the wagon would only complicate matters. The deliberating, thought? Well down to dirt she didn't really care, but began to itch to bark shit for no justifiable reason. Being offered company always made her a bit antsy to be around that person, not that anything was out of the ordinary. Heck, little mouse looked even less at ease. She just liked the extra insurance of appearances (less people willing to mess, or even look at, a girl with a tendency to bite).

Ah, if she already gunned for a less threatening impression she may as well keep that up for the span of one conversation, right? Oliver settled on an eerie silence instead, in which she hastily recalled the mouse's name to be Yui. Clearly breaking the boundaries of complexity.

Right, she should probably answer the question from the shy girl (and probably start taking her seriously, yes)-- “Looking for a ticket out, eh? I've got no reason to stop you, figure someone like you might come in handy for this little magic trio.” She paused, thought for a second. “And, you know. People.” Probably won't hurt the group, much. Oliver wasn't planning to play babysitter however, so this one had to save their own hide unless the punk-rock reject was willing to be mother bear.

With matters handled to an awkward extend, Oliver settled for fidgeting with some non-existent dust in her pockets. A silent groan as she navigated to the nearest exit and hoped they'd follow suit. Or not. A tempting wish still.

Syfer rolled his eyes as Tatsuo grabbed the paper away, preferring not to engage the dragon slayer. After all, he had just gotten over one headache, so why get another? He turned his eyes to the girl called Yui, his blacked out eyes with red iris' looking the girl over. "Don't worry, quiet one. This should be no problem. Now, I suggest we leave before the needlessly serious one grows impatient." Syfer walked toward the exit, using various objects he found along the way to hide out of Valerie's view. He made it to the exit and took a heavy sigh of relief. He looked at Oliver with a smirk on his face. "You know, the tough girl, 'I don't care what you think' mentality will only get you so far. A little empathy here and there can do wonders." Syfer shrugged as he walked past her and out of the guild. "Or maybe you prefer the distance. Of course, all that gets you in the long run is a lonely fight."

He looked back, his red iris visible out of his peripheral, his normally indifferent expression bearing something far more cold and callous. "We've never worked together so I might just be making assumptions. But, if this is above your heads and you abandon anyone out there, don't bother coming back here. There's enough guilds out there with those just looking out for themselves." Syfer smiled and his expression changed. "Well, let's be off. Since you out this merry band together I believe that dictates you will be the leader. Yui?! Let's go, we might need your slaying." Syfer chose to ignore Tatsuo, slightly hoping the loud one would divert his attention to another job.

Yui Kuroshio


Yui glared angrily at Tatsuo for a moment, appaled at his extreme overreaction to the whole 'new dragon slayer' buisiness. As much as she didn't want to admit it, it would prove difficult to replace that loudmouth, as much as Yui sometimes wish they would. Still, most of his claims were just him spewing out nonsense like verbal diahrea, and worse, most of what he said was egotistical and just plain ignorant. 'Sure you're the best wizard, it's not like anyone here could beat the crap out of the great Tatsuo' Yui thought sarcastically. She didn't know what it was, but he just pissed her off.

Yui's attention shifted to Syfer as he called her name. Her anger left as Tatsuo shifted to the back of her mind, and it fully dawned on her that she was actually going on a job, with other people! She rushed over to Syfer and smiled, sure, maybe Oliver was a bit on the apathetic side, but Syfer seemed nice enough. Yui just hoped that Tatsuo wasn't serious about coming along 'I don't think I could take it if that idiot came along' Yui thought as she caught up with Oliver and Syfer.

{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!"

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.

Oliver Laece
{Storm Shield Guild Hall}


“Eh, whatevs...” Oliver wasn't proud to admit that she had heard worse from anger management issues, and it was shrugged off just as easily back then – Sticks and stones might break her bones, but words never hurt her (as much) after the umpteenth sneer. Little known fact that Oliver was a quick learner and reckoned throwing a fit wasn't worth time nor effort, besides she hadn't thought to drop her apathy mask in ages. 'So why start now?' Right, better get back to glooming again lest anyone notices she's had feelings and all that.

And not long after Tatsuo's redesign of the guild entrance, everything went to the complete point of utter disaster that Oliver had hoped to avoid. Valerie, in all her hungover glory, made quick work of some unresolved conflicts, and it wouldn't be long before her blazing eyes settled indirectly on Oliver and her not-so merry band of tag-alongs. 'Just when I was about to cheat my way out.', thanks angry smurf!

Fortunately for the emo reject, who was apparently the guild master's next target (obviously hiding worked out so well for him), the raging bull was halted by Storm Shield's latest disappointment and left the group with an opening to make with the winds. “Don't take this the wrong way or anything... but you might wanna, y'know, get the fuck out?” She said suggestively, how helpful.

Oliver herself took her own brilliant advice to heart and took the second exit in pursuit of their oh-so willing leader. 'Eh, at least it's not me.'

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.

Yui Kuroshio


Yui could stand Tatsuo being an asshole to everyone, and she could stand some of his smart-ass comments. But what she couldn't stand was the fact that she was being called a lackey. I'm no one's lackey, I don't take orders from him! Just who does he think he is! Yui clenched her fists as her anger sparked up. If anything, he should be taking orders himself! Not giving them! He was the one who just barged in on this job! Yui kept on getting more and more angry towards Tatsuo, though she didn't outright punch him, even though she really wanted to. This should've been a regular job with people who weren't blatant asshats and actually kind of nice. But Tatsuo had ruined any chance of that happening.

Yui couldn't just stand there and think about it, if she wanted anything to change she had to do something. So, mustering up all of her willpower, she walked up behind Tatsuo, tapped him on the shoulder and said "Um.. Tatsuo... you're umm... an... asshole..." There! She had said something, even if it did come off as super pathetic because she could barely speak loud enough to hear. It was a step in the right direction at least. Yui could only hope that Tatsuo had actually heard her.

"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.
