Description

Name: Kennet

Nickname: Ken

Gender: Male

Age: 36

God: Vulcan

Appearance:Image
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 185 lbs
Hair: Long and wavy with a slight silver hue
Build: Wide, stocky and muscular especially chest and arms
Voice: Deep, booming voice
Distinct features: Long beard and mustache, Right handed, dark brown eyes,

Personality: Kennet is hard working, industrious man, taking pride in his work ( Almost to the degree of arrogance). At times he can be quite loud and straight forward in voicing his views, but normally means no harm with such words. His temper however can sometimes make him dangerous.

Abilities: As the eye of Vulcan, he can manipulate fire at will, and can forge to a masterful degree, his knowledge of metal work is extensive. The gods dwarven affinity also means he is very resistant to harsh environments and strong for his size

Clothing: Normally a baggy light shirt, with a set of sturdy trousers and boots both leather, When forging he loses the shirt and adorns a leather apron and gloves

Armour : A chain mail shirt forged to his size, with armour plated sections to fit over the top.

Weapon of choice: A maul, again forged to his exact size, since it was forged by himself.

Background: Kennet was born in a small, but rather self reliant town. when he was a boy Kennet went to find a small job to earn some pocket money, and to help his family, they were not poor, but rather his parents encouraged this behaviour to get him used to working, as they did with his siblings. Finding a small job delivery coal from the local supplier to the blacksmith, Kennet grew an interest into forging, and so when he became old enough he became the apprentice to the smith. It was during one of his work pieces that he became the Eye of Vulcan, but the effect was obvious as the quality of his forging increased dramatically, the only problem was he seemed to stop growing, but none the less Kennet went a head to take over the local forge, and started to carve his name as a master smith, with Vulcan guiding each hammer strike, though the god had yet to speak to the one who was his eye.

So begins...

Kennet had been travelling for most of the day now, but that was probably due to the luggage he had with him. Aside from his own personal effects, he also had a cart filled with his finer wares, and his own gear for display. The town he normally lived in did not have a large market so selling in that town was difficult, so often Kennet traveled between towns to sell his stuff. The hard part of all this was picking what to take with him to sell, he could of paid to get some help transporting it, but he did not want to waste the money.
Having heard, felt and seen the signs of disturbances off in the distances during that morning, Kennet grew impatient, wanting to get to town swiftly and sell his wares so he could be done with it. Now as the afternoon was growing, he finally managed to get into town, only see that there was panic throughout it. Scanning through the crowds of people he spotted some of the local guards and made his way across to them, his deep booming voice carrying across the wave of noise produced by the crowds. " You there..... Yes you guard....what Has caused all this ruckus" he questioned roughly as he stopped in front of the man.
" Creatures have assaulted.... And..And disturbances have been sighted in the next town" the guard answered, his voice wavering slightly due to all that has happened and the rough questioning. Kennet surprisingly gave a chuckle as he lifted the cover off his cart to show the display of weapons.
" Oh I am lucky today.... I came here wanting to sell these.... But instead I get a chance to see my work tested" he said gesturing the guards over to look inside the cart " Take a look.... Aye there is not enough for everyone.... But enough to replace at least a score, maybe two of the guards lesser weapons" Kennet said, smiling at the look of amazement on the guards face, especially since the captain had come over and heard what he said " Though captain.... No one gets the maul and the armour set that's in there... Those are mine". The captain nodded swiftly towards the one who had just gifted him some fine weapons, and by the looks of things an extra hand for the defence.
" Would I be too bold in requesting you also to repair and sharpen some of the other weapons?". Giving the captain a slap on the back Kennet chuckled.
" Bold Aye, but you asked the right man.... Just give me the weapons and a grind stone.... And leave me to it". Taking his own stuff from the cart, Kennet followed the guard captain as he lead towards the local smithy. With Some of the weapons already there Kennet set himself to work making sure the weapons were all sharp, to his standard, and with the amount he had in front of him it should take him to the evening. As he worked into the evening, the guards came and went collecting the weapons, or coming to get one looked at, Normally they were sent away with Kennet yelling at them to polish the blade better.
You should start preparing as well. Came a rough voice distracting Kennet from his work, only to glance around and find no one around him, causing the question of where the voice came from to spring into his head.
Your mind... You fool that's where the voice is coming from, though I don't like to be referred to as the voice.
Well you have yet to give me a name.... So until then your are the damned voice inside my head. Kennet retorted
There was a pause at this point, the only sound was that of deep, certainly male voice creating a hmmm sound.
You have a point, so lets get that out the way... I'm Vulcan
The god? Kennet questioned with the slight tone of hesitation
No your long lost uncle... Of course the god who else talks inside your mind? Vulcan replied with ample sarcasm
Well no one until you turned up.
Good point..... But just hurry up a get ready.. I can explain later.
Why is a god talking. Kennet managed to speak before getting interrupted
Did I not just say I will explain later? Vulcan questioned, rather quickly onto the point. The god was as straightforward in his speech as Kennet was
Well aye you did say that... But at least tell me what I am preparing for?
An attack of course. Came the rough voice of the god, which provoked Kennet to grab his maul and seek at the guard captain to see if there were any plans in place for a defence, and to see where he could join the defence lines.Not knowing how close the attack actually was.

Lucien was rallying his troops when the god’s voice rang through his head, he turned to look at the other eyes and heard the god say something about seeing other frequencies, suddenly everything changed and where he had saw the kid and the two love birds (they still hadn’t refuted that point) he saw a blue haired boy, an man barely covered in seaweed, and a woman in a green dress. His head hurt after that, but what happened next was a little worse Agatheon spoke up next “You really think seeing these forms are useful well I’ll bestow something I’ve already bestowed on my own Eye, the humans you lead will get something like a boost in fighting ability, at least that will give you a little more power tonight.”
He saw the peddler come into town, and after the peddler stopped talking with the captain, Lucien walked over to him and told him he could protect the rear because with his cart he could block the inn we had placed any noncombatants till the morning, also asking how much money he would need after this fight if they survived.

"Your watch?" Ezall approached the auburn haired girl, who was immediately absorbed into her work as the green haired boy stood over her shoulder.

Ezall finished appointing duties to his company, and was free to survey the town square as he strode towards the two of them. The townspeople were mostly unarmed, and they could use some armaments to at least put up a struggle with the later assault from the demons. He divided them into three separate groups to keep watch on the only entrances into the town square, they would alternate with another company, perhaps one belonging to Lucien, or the other Eyes. He knew it was pointless though, seeing as how these demons came from the sky. It would be pointless to erect barricades on the roads, they had to find better ground.

As he pondered this, he saw a stout being. He was dwarfish in his appearance. He was very muscular, and bearded. Long golden locks hung from underneath a metal helmet that he was wearing. He was towing a large wagon with an assortment of goods, most of which appeared to be weapons and shields. The man, approached the Captain of the guard, and they conversed for a time. They exchanged a few gestures, but Ezall wasn't able to discern what they were talking about. After a few minutes of conversing, the large man towed his cart to a nearby group of guards. He set to work grinding and carving something.

Toting the sharpened stick on his shoulder, Ezall looked towards the girl, Christine.

"Anyone, know who he is?" Ezall pointed with the stick at the dwarf.

As he was speaking with the captain he noticed the masked man, come up and tell him he was part of the rearguard so to speak and that his cart would be used to block the Inn and provide add safety to the noncombatants.As he started to pull the cart again he heard the question of money and smiled shouting back to the masked man " Money for half of my wares will be enough... but we can speak of that later". With his booming voice now silent, he moved his cart just into position outside the Inn, one good shove and it would be definitely defending the Inn, but for now it was good.Taking the moment to glance around, he noticed the guards seemed reasonably equipped but there were quite a few who seemed rather ill equipped but then again it was a rather sudden attack. Coming out of his thoughts, went back to honing the edges of the weapons that were in the cart. The edges on these blades which were his own and he would offer out, were incredibly fine, more of an edge then the metal should hold normally.
Fine work... but even with that level of sharpness it may only help against the weaker Kyuun. Vulcans voice interrupted once again
Care to explain what you mean by Kyuun.?
Tough creatures.... if you hit a weak point with one of these. The god said referring to Kennet's own weapons. You should be alright.
You could of told me all of this a lot sooner, maybe before i had left my place behind? Kennet said shaking his head at how behind he was with information
Its much better to survive what coming then to know what is killing you so listen to me.
I can't disagree with you there. Due to conversation in his head, he had rather lost track of his surrounding, but he was now glancing round to watch the commotion around him

Christine shook her head.
"Not a clue." But as she saw him, she smiled.
Vulcan. She said to herself.
"Anyway, I'll be off making some weapons. Ezall, do you have a particular type of weapon or design? I can make it from any material, but the Mythril will be most effective."


Kederath had wondered a few feet away from them. He squatted down to see a rabbit sitting next to him, aware of everyone but him. Or so it seemed. He pondered on this then, he felt a tugging in his gut. He willed the animal, much like he did to the plants, and it followed his command. It scurried away from him.
"Very useful Arborius. Now I'm the bunny-wisperer."

Leaving the weapon he was checking back in the cart, He let his eyes wander around,scanning what he saw around him. It was only something in the corner of his vision that caught his attention, but he noticed a tree, growing back to life after it seamlessly withered.
Other gods have taken eyes as well.
Well i gathered that much. Kennet retorted rather quickly. Though he was wrapping his head round new ideas rather well, he still would of preferred more information from Vulcan, but he trusted him when he said it will be explained later.
Bringing his attention back to round to the present seen, he had managed to hear the rather solemn predication from one man, and the one who was messing with the tree, question the need of it being said.
" Sometimes lad.... False hope is just as bad as no hope.... At least with them knowing they can make better preparations" he said towards the green-haired boy, allowing his voice to carry as he walked closer " Though agreed maybe the little ones did not need to hear it... but we cant undo that now"

Kederath nodded. He held his fist out, aimed at the tree, and flexed his fingers outwards. His hand was flat, his palm towards to three. Simultaneously the tree exploded as if his had was boundto it and the tree ripped apart.
He was amazed at this power, he could do things without divine words...
No one else but the Eyes could do this.
No one.
Well, that was as far as he knew... As far as the gods knew. But hey, who knows? Maybe there's this strange, unknown species of Kyuun just aiting to be unleashed that can do the same thing to floating islands that he just did to the tree.
He tried not to think about it...

Watching the green haired boy as he raised his fist towards the tree, Kennet arched a brow slightly wondering what the kid was doing. That was until the tree exploded, leaving Kennet standing there blinking at the remains.
" With that kind of power.... lets hope they attack from the forest" he said with a chuckle, as he did note the departure of the other fellow, but each was to their own in such situations, though seeing the powers of the body did make him think, and like always this did not go unnoticed by the god.
Lets start with something simply, Manu ignis, a simple production of a flame, what you do from there is up to you. Now imagine power in your hand, The intensity of your being in a single point.
Clenching one of his large fists, Kennet concentrated on what the god said, before opening his hand, just as his fingers spread apart from the palm of his hand, it lit up with a good size fire.
Conjuring a flame is the hard part, the manipulation of it is relatively easy.Vulcan said, sensing the slight relief in Kennet with this knowledge
Gives me something to practice.
Closing his fist, he killed the flame, before glancing back up towards the lad. " Now i have some tricks up my sleeves for later as well" he said his broad chest heaving with a chuckle.
