The King of Aravale

He smiled at her as she called him father. "No darling I do not need anything from the market. Be safe. Maybe you should take a few members of the guard with you." He shook his head "Nevermind I trust you to your be safe." He turned out of the room and closed the door behind him heading to his office to begin the work for the day. He smiled after he realized that she was wearing a nice dress and riding boots. He laughed to himself "She will never change."

Patience

Patience was sitting in a room by himself waiting for Lucius to call upon him. He sensed the light and smiled "Lucien Will be very interested in this." He disappeared and began searching for Lucius. He had no idea where he was. Finally he picked up his trail and began walking on the path about thirty feet behind him. He ran to catch up to him and realized that another was standing there with him. "Master who is this?" His mind went back to subject at hand. "I feel the great light again my lord."

I only smiled as the Pixie said it didn't know it had a place. "Everyone has a place. All it takes is someone to realize their potential. For example. You say you lack any power. Your visage itself inspires fear in those who would witness it, otherwise you would not have been driven to my realm, and I know most pixies have a certain... Hypnotic ability... I see a position for you as either diplomat, assassin, or-" I was rudely interrupted from my soliloquy as an already-employed assassin(Patience, good kid, great with his trade and his blades, gets my name right once every three times.) landed about thirty feet away and ran over. I sighed, and cradled my head in one hand.

"We've been over this, Patience, it's the information first, THEN any questions. Directive then inquisitive. You sound like you never went to school otherwise." I then made a quick motion with my other hand, "Kabal, this is Patience, one of my assassins, Patience, Kabal, the Pixie I was planning on hiring on as a Dragon." Seeing the confusion on their faces, I continued, "A second-in-command, someone I give tasks I want done, the guy who gets said stuff done? But I'm getting distracted, you said a light, can you be more specific? The job can't be considered if I lack understanding of it." Elise drifted into my hand, and I began twirling her around, the spinning staff directed as much by her magic as by me. I had a bad feeling about this "light", mainly because anyone who's read a single fantasy novel knows what "the light" does to the bad guy.

Kabal Fear


Kabal's eyes narrowed slightly as Lucius spoke to him. A place? Even for him? That was a strange thing to say... But if someone with as much confidence as the self-proclaimed leader of Liridale said it, it had to be true. So Kabal quietly accepted that he had a place. As Lucius continued, however, Kabal found himself becoming somewhat more interested. Had Lucius been watching him as well?

Kabal couldn't shake the question in his mind. Where had Lucius gotten all of his information? Kabal didn't usually go around tell his story to random passers by, so the only way Lucius could've gotten a hold of such old information was by happening upon it through some oddity. Kabal smiled slightly, closing his eyes as Lucius continued to speak. He was praising him? How very strange.

A small sound caught the pixie off guard, causing his eyes to snap open as a slight growl came from his throat. There was someone else here. As this new being approached, Kabal began to look him over. He sighed a little. He had seen this assassin around Liridale before. Truly a strange creature at best. Kabal had no words for describing the assassin aside from "odd" or "strange". Truthfully, he held a slight interest in the assassin, mostly because he was mysterious. Kabal smirked darkly as the assassin spoke.

"Master who is this?"


Kabal's eyes narrowed in amusement. Perhaps he was stealthier than he knew. Most of the citizens of Liridale didn't seem to know of his habitual stalking of their daily habits. That or they just didn't care. Perhaps they knew that Kabal wasn't worth the time it took to tell the pixie to stop staring... A small laugh came from Kabal's throat without him thinking. It was then something else caught his interest.

"I feel the great light again my lord."

The great light? Kabal's eyes widened slightly. This rang a bell, if only so slightly. Lucius voice interuptted his thoughts with a slight reminder of what exactly he should be thinking about.

"We've been over this, Patience, it's the information first, THEN any questions. Directive then inquisitive. You sound like you never went to school otherwise."


Kabal filed this thought away for later. He may need this information... Then again, he'd probably forget before too long. What was that splashing sound...? Running water...?

"Kabal, this is Patience, one of my assassins, Patience, Kabal, the Pixie I was planning on hiring on as a Dragon."

Kabal smirked and reached out a bloody hand. He didn't truly expect the assassin to shake, but it was considered polite to attempt. He opened his mouth to say something, but no sound came out. Odd. He would just have to accept that this wasn't something he was good at either. He took his hand away without really giving Patience the time to shake it. It was then Kabal realized he hand just been referred to as a dragon. He put one hand to his horns and rubbed them slightly. He was almost positive Lucius had called him a pixie earlier... Was he a dragon...? That might be somewhat more fitting... But could he turn into a dragon...? And that sound... What was it?

"A second-in-command, someone I give tasks I want done, the guy who gets said stuff done? But I'm getting distracted, you said a light, can you be more specific? The job can't be considered if I lack understanding of it."

"Second-in-command?" Kabal's voice came out very low. Was he really...? He scratched his arm and looked to the ground. Lucius knew better than he did... Perhaps he could succeed in finishing tasks if Lucius told him to. His eyes suddenly flashed up at the mention of the light again. This time, he remembered.

"The light? I have some recollection of a certain 'light' that may be linked to a certain time and place... Event..." An unnerving grin came to his face as he began to recall more details. "A certain... Person." He looked to Patience with a somewhat less lazy stare. This might be a good chance.

"I would be more than happy to investigate. I remember a good deal about this light. Beside, I fear for your safety being that neither of you are particularly... Light yourselves." With this comment, Kabal created a small flash of light in his hand, just for the emphasis. It was one of the few things he could do, so he felt that he might as well show them what he meant. Pixies, while pranksters, where not usually considered 'evil'. Despite his unnerving look, he might be able to figure out more about what this light had in store without getting caught.

Of course, he could care less about the job itself. He more just wanted the chance to observe. This light was interesting. Something new, or at least something that didn't happen often. Kabal's eyes went to Lucius. There was still that sound. Water..? He swore something in the nature felt out of place... Perhaps it was just the fairy in him hating Liridale. Now he had to know... He let out a breath of laughing gas. If there was an unexpected laughing, at least it would explain the sound.

"I apologize for this." His voice was rough. He still hadn't gotten used to speaking. He created quite a bit more laughing gas; starting to snicker a bit himself.

The pretty mermaid girl still hid herself behind the rock. She had a slight fear of the trolls said to be lurking in the Kingdom of Liridale who are said to feed mercilessly on the flesh of her people. Though, at the current moment, she wasn't sure of just who her people were. She had, after all, been born in this world. She lived in it's icy cold waters for several years of her life, but it was such a blurr to her. The only things she could remember was how everything underneath the water was dead, including the coral, and there were always ice patches glittering on the surface of the water in uneven chunks. Some places had it, some did not. Nerine had often wondered if her memories of this place died with age, or by force. His Magesty of Atlantia tried many a time to wipe any desire from his nearly adopted daughter to visit this evil place again, clearly to no avail. She was not sure if he had put some kind of spell on her mind to remove any good memories of this world she had been born into.

In any case, Nerine could still hear talking above her in the darkness. Even with her dark-vision, she still could not make the figures out. She saw horns and wings on one, flowing fabric on another, and a lecherous voice on the third. In that moment, she was not sure if these people, if one could call them that, were the very trolls she had heard the tales of. Curiosity would get the best of her, as usual. The mermaid decided she was too far from their spot. She surveyed the area silently and saw another, slightly smaller rock than the one she currently hid behind, several leagues away from her. She dipped under the water, a soft "plunk" noise was made when she submerged herself, and she swam in the cold, dark water over to the rock, closer to the voices above still cloaked in darkness.

Maedwen looked up at her elven blood-brother and held her hand up in protest. It was shaking with fear, but she did not wish for bloodshed in a field such as this. She did not wish to remember her first time so far beyond the walls of Elvae to be stained with crimson.
"Van ndu, Badhorn. Ta naa nelin su sina edan anta tanya eller naa neh irm nae cron amin." (Stand down, Badhorn. It is clear from this man's face that there is no desire to harm me.)T
The princess stands and looks upon the young man who walks away with a sadness, nay, rejection about his aura. Her peculiar blue eyes are fixated upon him.
"Human Mage." Maedwen calls, "We seem to have similarities in our pasts. Most of the kingdoms look upon us with distaste and hatred as well." She pauses and a very slight smile lit her face, "I do not wish you to retreat me." Maedwen walks over to Felix, then pauses, turning back to Badhorn.
"Cael atara ent atar tanar llie nae teshuel amin n'alaquel?" (Have mother and father send you to take me back?)

Con'ken

Con'ken smiled and glad the night covered his blushing skin. He bowed as Nieve transformed and took off into the wind. Con'ken smiled and stared up into the light. "Come what may I will not allow anyone to threaten that other world." He took his shirt off and tied it to a tree near the clearing. He started stretching and then attempted to hide waiting for ill or good.

King of Aravale

Theodred listened to the explanation and found comfort in his wife's presence. He stood there quiet listening trying to process the whole situation. He didn't understand why was this happening and why so close to his kingdom. As the conversation progressed he realized he was being awkward and oddly quiet. He turned around looking around thinking about how many rooms they had open in the castle. "Yes I agree my dear. Demetri keep the girl with you but the moment she wakes even it been when moon is highest you bring her here." He turned towards his wife. "Charlotte seems to have gone to market. She was wearing her new dress with her leather riding boots."

Badhron Halerider

He lowered his weapon by her orders "Sai eithel seldi(Very well princess)" He pulled the arrow from the string and placed it back in his quiver. He looked to the human "I apologize but you see she is our princess. I meant no offense." He turned to his princess "Neh Amin nae soor i' edan eshaal i' ravan. Amin cael n' wanwa nae i' benerel deshu tella quanta teu.( No I was track the man through the forest. I have not gone to the city after last full moon.)" He shrugged at her.

Patience

He let his thoughts cloud his mouth once more. He stood before the two of them. He bowed as he was introduced to Kabal. Kabal then began to speak about the light and ending by summoning a small orb of light in his hand. Patience noticed the skills though he figured Kabal might be in the wrong place. he waited for Kabal to finish and then spoke his peace. "The light seems akin to the one the boy used many years ago." He new that this might be interesting to his master and if it wasn't then at least he now knew. He giggled a bit which was a unknown feeling to him. "What is this?" He perked his ears a bit and smiled under his cloak as he felt someone else hearing a change. It could have been a frog or another stupid troll but he felt it was not. He choose to not mention it as it seemed insignificant.

Emeror Dredenthin

Emeror sat outside the palace of Morinae. He knew that Nieve had left as he walked up to give his report of his patrol. He sighed "She does this all the time. She is a very busy woman." He laughed to himself and read over his report one more time. He sat on the stairs summoning blades and then banishing them. It was quite a wonderful day so he had no problem waiting for her.

I nodded as Kabal told me what he knew of the "light", which Patience supplemented. I also couldn't help but smile when Kabal joked about us not exactly being "light". I take pride when people call me dark, it's my JOB.
"Of course, the boy. Funny how he should show up now. Alright, Kabal!" I said, turning to him and straightening up. "Your first job, call it a test, is to learn more about this boy. I have a good network of spies, but none of them can induce hypnosis. Utilize your rather unique skillset to find him, but do not let him know I'm planning things." I then turned to Patience, my tone the commanding kind you would find leading an army, "Patience, you run crowd control. Go outside Liridale, see if there are any resistances building up against me in the boy's name, besides the ones I have in the town squares to keep people jaded, of course. And then, if you would kindly, snuff them out." Finally, I stretched, tapped my staff to the ground, and opened a shadow portal between the mermaid nearby and myself, yanked her through the water by the arm, closed the portal, then had the blade part of my staff spring out and come to rest a quarter-inch from her carotid artery, calling forth my "demon" voice, really just a simple echo spell and a voice deepening one.

"AND I WILL QUESTION THE MERMAID AS TO WHY SHE IS TRESPASSING ON A PRIVATE CONVERSATION."

HORNED ONE'S BALLS, I'd forgotten how much my throat hurts after I talk in Thriller font! I already knew she was probably just curious about Liridale and as harmless as a fly to me, but hey, once people hear you've gone soft, people begin to disobey you, and then it's nothing but work, work, work all the ti- I'd seen that blond haired mermaid before...

"Nerine?"

Theodred, The King of Aravale

He turned around after Demetri had left and looked at his wife. He went to say I love you when she spoke at him about the freedom of Charlotte. "I did not believe it necessary to send guard with the girl. She always expressed that she was only going out for a bit so I thought it unneeded to set a curfew. Also look at this way no one in our kingdom wants her to come to harm I'm sure." He moved in close to his wife and pulls her hand into his own. He then presses her hand to his lips and kisses them softly. "Smile dear. You frown to much."

Con'ken

Con'ken had been waiting hiding in woods for either something to come through the portal or someone attempt to breach the portal from their side. He waited for a bit wondering about what to expect. Then a light flashed a bit away from where he was. "Shit I thought they would come from this portal."

He took off into the woods heading to the area the light came from. He witnessed the girl speak to the ferret and then the creature take off towards Morinae. Con'ken walked into the clearing and approached the girl. He sniffed at her and thought to himself yes that's a outlander. He made sure he didn't come in to fast but not approaching silently. He waited till he was sure she could see him 'Greetings Traveler. My name is Con'Ken I am a guard of The Lady of the Forest. You ferret friend is running toward our kingdom. Do you need help?" He realized he was treating his movement more like how you would approach a scared animal but he had no idea what to expect.

Emeror Dredenthin

Emeror looked up a Nieve "Always the fantastical entrance mi'lady" He laughed a bit and stood up stretching his back from sitting there. He followed her in looking over the walls and over the stone floor. "Yes sadly the only thing I had to report was the light which I figured you had already investigated. Everything else seems fine though. It also seems the people of Atlantia have been busy crossing over to Liridale at least three." He looked over the castle and the looked at her "So where's Con'ken?"

Patience

Patience bowed and began walking toward the outside perimeter of Liridale. He kept his eyes down and released the light from his thoughts. After walking for a little bit he came to the edge and began moving his hands in pattern. His eyes turned white and the words coming from his mouth seemed not his own. After a few minutes a dozen minor shadow demons stood before him. "Spread out and report to me if you see anything." Each of them went in a different direction. Patience sat down on a fallen tree and waited.

Kabal Fear


Kabal's eyes widened slightly as he heard Lucius agree to send him off on a "test". He grinned slightly; feeling the first real excitement he had in years. He would get to investigate the light? Alone? He laughed darkly under his breath. This was going to be quite interesting.

Kabal nodded his head slowly, dropping the grin. No reason to smile for too long. He glanced Lucius over and slowly spoke. "You can help me get there, right? Walking would take quite some time... It's not something I would like to do if possible." About that time, the sound of the water became somewhat more clear. Kabal's fingers twitched as he glanced around. This was far too unnerving for his tastes. Soon Patience had left to carry out the orders he was given by Lucius. This left Kabal in an even stranger state. Should he leave? Should he wait?

Of course, when Lucius pulled a blonde mermaid out of portal of shadow with quite the loud exclamation of anger, Kabal's interest in the present was renewed. Had this mermaid been the source of the sounds? He had never seen a mermaid before... He had heard plenty of stories, but even in his long life, Kabal had never gotten to see one of the strange creatures. He smiled only slightly before he heard his new master speak up again.

"Nerine?"

So Lucius knew this mermaid? If that were the case, Kabal would probably need to attempt to be polite... He reached a hand up and pulled it through his hair. He hoped Lucius didn't want him to look more presentable... It was difficult to look anything but scrawny and weak for the bloody pixie.

"Greetings to you, Nerine... I'm assuming that's what you are called at least..." Kabal spoke in his still rough voice, "Were you the one making that sound earlier...? I had begun to question my sanity." This time Kabal smiled only to be polite. His interest was lost quickly, now back to the idea of leaving. He wondered if he could convince Lucius to use one of those Shadow Portals to send him to Morinae... Though, that may be the wrong area if he needed to search for the boy.

Casper Lazurus

Everything was going good. He hadn't ran into a guard there seemed to be no traps and everything was just perfect. Until he touched the staff and he felt it call out to its master. Unlike most humans Casper saw magic as a tool but sadly he had none of his own. As he turned around getting ready to make a hasty escape a women appeared before him in the door. "Oh by the gods."

"One more move, vermin, and I will have you dead!" She shouted as she moved into a stance showing that she was ready to cast. He put his hands in the air droping the staff at his side. "I apologize my lady it seems I have lost my way and saw this staff and it called to me." A lie but it would gauge who this was. "Do you know who this house belongs to? I wish to issue an apology as it seems my wandering has got me into trouble again." She was beautiful who ever she was.

"There is no reason to cast miss I will come peacefully." He put his hands on the back of his head.

Theodred, King of Aravale

Theodred smiled at his wife and nodded. "My dear it can be very troublesome and with portal open again trouble is sure to follow, but if nothing else we have each other. We have our loyal people and we have our allies. As the problems will arise we shall handle them like a royals should." He pulled her onto his lap and laid his head against her chest. "I'm glad we hired that new gardener the last one was not very good at his job."

Con'Ken & Emeror Dredenthin

Con'Ken lead the unicorn keeper and the young female to the lady and stood behind them as they spoke to Nieve. He smiled at her and then went to take his leave but bumped into Emeror on the way out. "Evening Emeror how is the patrolling going?"
Emeror responded "Quiet in fact it seemed as though everything is still because the portal." Con'Ken shook his head and headed out of the castle and down the steps. On his way out he meet a citizen of this land a young dark fae.

"Evening Kal'xio. You seem well." COn'Ken leaned against a nearby pillar.

Emeror had been standing with the Lady when Con'ken had lead the two people to her. The male was a unicorn keeper and had brought a unicorn with him it seems. The other was human but she seemed to be able to speak to the animals around her. She seemed young in her actions which made him curious. He walked up to her and put out his hand introducing him self. "I am called Emeror, Miss traveler and might I say you have quite a special gift." He swirls his hand around and makes a small rose from shadow and handed it to her "As do all of us. You are among friends."

Patience

Patience grew bored of his current mission as he waited for his demons to come back and report to him. He smiled and drew a blade from his cloak. He cut a small mark into his wrist and using the dark greenish poison, he created a summoning circle made from his blood. "Oh granter of desires, keeper of lust and demon of excess, I call to thy Shaiyla." He didn't know if it would work but hey if it did he wouldn't be bored anymore. He laughed to himself and waited.

Con'Ken

Con'ken had waited a bit for the young women to speak by she seemed occupied. He sighed and looked out over the forest and saw the smoke rising from the treeline. "What in the hells?" He looked to the women "I'm sorry I must go." He stripped his shirt from him as he went war form and used its speed to carry him into the woods quicker. He had many things running through his mind. Why was the forest on fire? Did it come from the portal? Was it an attack from Liridale or maybe even the humans? He decided that dwelling on his thoughts would get him in trouble. He refocused on following the scent of the fire. He smelled something with it. It seemed familiar almost like he had smelt it before. He came closer to the line of burning trees and then realized he had no ability to stop the fire. He sighed again and looked around and saw a horned creature. He sniffed in deeply and began to climb a nearby tree that was not on fire. "Who are you?" His voice low and deep like that of a snarling wolf.
Aaran Sonwerd

Aaran happened to be going on his daily walk outside the city walls when a man on a horse ran past him with a young women being carried by a man. He thought nothing of it. As he approached the woods he felt the prescence of something evil and unholy. He drew his broad sword and moved toward his feeling. In the clearing was a small shadow demon snacking on a rabbit it had killed. Aaran mumbled a quick prayer and waited to see if this was the only one around. The demon snacked upon his kill oblivious to the surroundings. No more seemed to be in the area as far as Aaran knew. He charged the demon and if not a twig he stepped on would have sliced the thing in two. The creature swung its hand around slamming Aaran in his armored arm and sent him skidding back a few steps. The demon saw better pray. The priest readied himself for the creatures assault. The demon foolishly jumped at Aaran leaving him self off balance. Aaran capitalized and swung the sword in a low arc knocking the demon on its back. The Aaran with his holy blade held high slammed his sword into the demons chest. The demon wiggled for a few seconds but feel still after a few moments. Aaran picked up the demon and began running back to the capital to inform the king.
Patience

Patience felt the connection to one of his demons fade. He then looked back to the circle waiting for something to happen. "I wonder if anything is going to go right today." He focused for a second on his other demons. They seemed fine. "Stupid creature went to far."

Nerine watched as the horned, winged man disappeared. Her blue eyes seemed to lock on to him as he moved. There was something about him. She wished to learn more about him in the future. For now, she knew she was caught. But it was not the kind of "caught" that the fables of Atlantia had told; no. This was...different. There was, peace, kindness even, or what seemed like it. They did not harm her, did not even yell save for the initial moment where she was found out. Why did they tell all these horrible stories of goblins who ate merpeople? Why did they speak of evil and horrible anger and death if there was no such thing here? Was it to deter merfolk from traveling out of the lands of Atlantia? Nerine wished to know more.

"I need to speak with the gillgirl alone. Start your search in Morinae... Or don't. You've yet to even truly accept my offer of a job. I'd place you in Morinae itself, but the very spell I helped put in place keeping anyone of law or goodness out also keeps my small spells in, so you'll have to walk or fly for a bit." Lucius spoke. Nerine crinkled her nose, eyebrows, and mouth as she heard him address her to the peculiar man. Gillgirl? Was that an endearing term? She had gotten "Fishhag" and "Seasnake" before, but never gillgirl...she wasn't sure whether to take it as a compliment or an insult. The man turned to her and she began to feel a chill up her spine when he spoke again.
"Nerine... How many years has it been since I last saw those eyes so like your mothers?"
"H-How do you know my name?" One could hear the slight tremble in her voice as she spoke, "Who are you?"
