A portion of the nanobots used to keep him alive always stays in his body, while the rest can be used at his will.

Personality: Hayden likes to show off his powers any chance he gets. He loves to help the scientists in the lab in developing ways to protect the academy from outside threats and creating machines and robots to help with the huge task of keeping the school clean and organized.

History: Hayden is a native to Origin. He was raised in Questrios city and discovered his powers at the early age of four. He realized that his power to control machines and all forms of technology was unique and rare. His parents sent him to the academy when they heard about it so he could learn to hone his abilities.

Additional Traits:
Technical Osmosis: Has a natural ability to understand any machine or tech he touches and how it functions.
Tech Genius: Hayden is not only able to understand what he touches, but he's able to create tech using this knowledge he retains from his Tech Osmosis.
Cybernetic Upgrades: Hayden has used the nanobots to "Upgrade" most of his body and sometimes it's hard to tell if he's man or machine.
Backup copy: Hayden's nanobot keep a portion of his magic and specs on his bio and neurological patterns so if even one nanobot survives, it can regenerate Hayden a completely new body from any matter available.

So begins...

Hayden walked into the library and quickly began to scan the shelves looking for anything he could use to help him in his project. He was trying to create a matter density field generator to help keep the school safe for and from students and teachers of larger species. It would encompass the school in a field that would adjust the density of everything so that larger creatures wouldn't damage the foundations or the walkways on the campus.

"Let's see here, quantum entanglement? No that isn't what I need. Ah, here we go, applied quantum field theory. That should help" He reached for the book and bumped into another person in the library. "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't see you there. I must have been caught up my work again." He smiled at the guy. He looked a little younger than Hayden, but the scars on his face suggested that he had been in many battles. Hayden noticed the book in his hand about inter-dimensional travel and the look of confusion on the guy's face. That in addition to the scars and Hayden was quickly able to put the young man's situation together in a matter of seconds after observing this.

"Let me guess; you showed up here out of nowhere, got teleported to the headmaster's office where he gave you some crazy story about you being here for a reason or something like that, then you came here to try and find a way to get back to your home? Well I hate to say it but the headmaster is usually right on those sort of things. You could try to travel back home at great risk, or you could see if there's anything here worth staying for. But that's just my opinion." He smiled as he took his book and flipped through it in front of his eyes and he scanned the information directly to his brain. He put the book back and smiled once again at the guy before turning to leave "The food is pretty good here, that's reason enough to stay for some people. I'm going to go get lunch now if you want to join me."

Kaju'ha stumbled back before catching himself. The place looked so empty he didn't expect to run into anyone. He was, however, distracted by the man's blue hair. Kaju'ha wasn't given any time to respond before Hayden went on with his guess. It wasn't entirely accurate, nor inaccurate. "U-um. Actually, I guess I never got the crazy story about me being here for a reason. I was simply teleported here because I said I was looking for the library." Kaju'ha chuckled awkwardly as he looked down at his shirt. It appeared he drooled whilst he slept. Completely unintentional on his part. He only drools when he's hungry or extremely tired. Perhaps he was both when this happened.

Kaju'ha personally hadn't ever heard of "lunch" before. It sounded tasty. And Hayden telling him there was food was what sold him. Kaju'ha nodded his head rapidly, going into his natural slouching state as he did so. When slouching, his height was about 5'8-ish. He never liked standing upright for too long, as the burns along his lower back made sure to that. "I-I'd like to join you." Words simply flew outward from his lips. "I mean. I was looking at the books to see if I could summon a being who was known for reality... dimensional... jumpy thingy. I see that you are interested in "applied quantum field theories". Me personally, I like that too but also learning how to harness magical powers... stuff. I can't manifest any type of power, you see."

Kaju'ha's eyes widened at a thought. "C-can you train me?" He bowed politely. When asking someone a great favor, it was a custom to bow in a formal way. Kaju'ha soon realized he too talked too fast for the man to even respond to his first statement. He had a lot to learn. Hopefully, Kaju'ha wasn't a useless case.

Hayden could tell that the young man was being polite in his actions. He had learned a lot of different gestures were used to convey gratitude while he was living in Questrios. There were a lot of tourists. He bowed in return. "Reality dimensional jumpy thingy, huh? Is that the technical term for trans-dimensional rift? I'm still working on that technology. The power supply is the hard part."

He thought his reaction to hearing about food was kind of funny as well as the fact that Hayden was clearly a little older, but this guy had to slouch to be at eye level. And speaking of eyes, his were two different colors and it took a lot for Hayden not to stare. "I can try to train you. I have expert knowledge of most forms of magic, but I'm only able to use one type magic myself. Oh yeah my name's Hayden." He grinned. "But first things first, let's get some food." He took the young man's hand and dragged him along to the cafeteria. "They have an all you can eat type of thing and more varieties of food than you can imagine. If you like food this is the place, I mean it's not gourmet, but it's good and there's a lot of it."

Kaju'ha was surprised when Hayden grabbed his hand to drag him to the...a... Cafeteria. "I-I'm Kaju'ha. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance."

They have an all you can eat type of thing and more varieties of food than you can imagine. If you like food this is the place, I mean it's not gourmet, but it's good and there's a lot of it.


Kaju'ha's ears perked up and his eyes widened. "What's your favorite food?" He wondered what people liked. He only ate sandwiches. So he'd have to have Hayden as his "guide". "And you're right. I think that is the technical term for a trans-dimensional rift." He kept his eyes low, trying to not seem creepy by staring at Hayden. It was hard for Kaju'ha not to stare when he was being dragged by his hand.

"What type of magic do you use?" Kaju'ha was surprised that Hayden had knowledge on magic but only used one type of magic. "Couldn't you use more than one type of magic if trained to do so? The body adapts to making a new energy reserve for magic doesn't it?" It might've not been the case, however. That's how it was in Kaju'ha's universe. But for the body to make a new energy reserve, it'd have to cut the current one in half. Everyone was different though.

Hayden finally let go of Kaju'ha's hand when they got to the cafeteria. "I don't really have a favorite food, I like so many of them." He took a big whiff of the air. "But the pizza smells really good today. Follow me and if you have any questions about the food I'll explain it to you... if I know." He chuckled.

Hayden began to explain his powers as he moved along the line looking at the afternoon's selections. "Well I have a rare type of magic that gives me the ability to control machines and technology. They call me a techno-mancer. I think the type of magic I use is so rare that it prevent's me from using other types. Either that or my body can only create the one type of energy from my manna reserves. But most people with magic abilities can train to use multiple types." Hayden spoke as he piled his plate with several types of pizza and some boneless BBQ chicken wings. He did his best not to go too fast through the line so that Kaju'ha could keep up.

Kaju'ha, unaware of what was good and bad, picked what Hayden picked. "I guess that your magic is pretty strong?" He did his best to keep up with Hayden as he continued to pick up when Hayden did. Kaju'ha didn't mean to seem weird if that's what it looked out. He just didn't know what any of the foods were. "As a techno-mancer, what can you do?" Kaju'ha never heard of a techno-mancer before. It sounded cool and epic to him. "Also, what are these?" He rushed up to Hayden's side, pointing at what he picked up. The only food Kaju'ha was familiar with was food transferred through tubes. He never actually ate anything except a sandwich that his brother made him before he popped up here.

When he thought about it, Kaju'ha wondered where his sword was. Maybe he'd go looking for it later on. Or tomorrow. He listened to Hayden as he talked a bit more. If he did. His mind was filled with all types of information, but most of it was unavailable for him to access. His mind only allowed him to remember so much. So when a specific expertise was needed. It took back the current knowledge and replaced it. Or if Kaju'ha wanted to know it all at once, he'd enter a trance which allowed him to rummage through the data in his head.

Hayden smiled as he looked at the curious look in his eyes as he brought up a small bowl with a bunch of grapes in it. "Oh those are grapes. They're a type of fruit, they're kinda sweet and a little tangy. As for what I can do, I think it's easier to show you." He held his tray in one hand and then held out the other. A grey cloud flew out of his hand, it was his nanobots. He had them merge to form a sword in his hands. "You see I got a bunch of microscopic robots in me and I can make them do whatever I want, I'm basically a cyborg now with how these little guys have upgraded me. But I can make any machine do whatever I want." He chuckled.

He made the nanobots go back inside him and he walked to the nearest empty table. He sat down and began to eat the pizza, he was thrilled to be making a friend outside of the science lab for once. "So, do you mind if I call ya Kaj for short? Kaju'ha is a bit of a mouthful."

"T-that's so cool." Kaju'ha was in awe when Hayden made the sword. "You mean like... super tiny robots?" He quickly grabbed a grape, examining it. "I don't mind you calling me Kaj. It's understandable that my name is a bit of a mouthful." Kaju'ha smiled slightly as he sat down next to Hayden, or across. "Would you happen to know how to manifest magic? I did it once but it was considered a fluke. Only a lucky exert. But it was so small and weak that I couldn't do anything with it."

Kaju'ha hadn't tried to manifest magical properties for a long time. Besides, he wasn't sure if they were considered friends. If they were, this would be Kaju'ha's first friend.

Throwing the grape into his mouth, he chewed it slowly with his mouth closing as he did so. Once he swallowed it, he talked. "It's like... The skin is dry, but when you chew it. It's soft underneath." Kaju'ha attempted to pick up his pizza, trying to figure out how to hold it.

Hayden smiled "Yeah, that's it exactly; super tiny robots." He listened to Kaj explain how he had manifested his magic before. "Hmm, I know that the manifestation of magic seems to be different for nearly every species that uses it. I think the best idea would be to recreate the conditions you were in when you manifested it the first time. From there we could analyze the type of magic you use and find ways to focus your natural abilities." Hayden explained, his scientific side getting excited.

He noticed Kaj trying to figure out the pizza. "Like this." Hayden said as he held up the pizza. "You might want to blow on it a little bit first, the cheese can be really hot sometimes and there's nothing worse than burning the roof of your mouth." He then took a bite. "Some people don't like the crust at the back of the slice, but I like to dip them in ranch like a bread stick." He chuckled, not thinking that he probably didn't know what any of the stuff was that he just talked about.

"So what are things like where you're from?"

Kaju'ha followed Hayden's example... thingy. "Conditions? All I know is that I tried to exert my magic when I found myself under rubble. I was only under rubble because Ark wanted to make my brother angry. They blamed it on the competitor which he used to fight against. But I guess my magical properties were dampened even more when I was put into cryo to stop my injuries from getting worse." But Kaj kept away from how he got his scars. Nor would he mention the burns on his lower back area. "My sword took in the small exertion but I have to find it. Hopefully, I do find it."

Kaj took a huge bite out of his pizza. "The place where I'm from revolved around a war. Two factions competing for the favor of a General. Weird, but the General was considered the leader of the world. No one dared to go against him, except Trejik's core. To do so, they snuck into Ark and stole some highly classified detail on my brother. Then proceeded to kill his wife. The entire intent was to make it so Jonathan attacked Trejik's core, bringing it to its knees. Then Trejik's core could ask for a permanent execution of Ark." Kaj continued rumbling on he didn't notice he was halfway through his food. He'd only been there for about... two minutes? He wasn't sure. "Also. What's ranch and a breadstick?" Kaj asked randomly as he stared at Hayden with his innocent demeanor.

Hayden listened quietly as Kaj told his story about his home world being ravaged by war. The look on Hayden's face was serious and somber as he saw the emotions wash over Kaj's face. "I get that everyone has a soft spot for home, but, if your home world is being ravaged by war, do you really want to go back there?" Hayden asked, trying not to sound too rude. He found himself staring at Kaj as he ate, the way someone stares at a difficult math problem hoping to suddenly understand it.

"So you say that your magical exertion was absorbed by your sword. So that's definitely a form of power transference, the sword may possibly be a channeling devise. You arrived here from another dimension. Damn this would be so much easier to figure out if we were in the lab. I could build a machine to identify your dimensional signature, then use that to find your sword. I could also build something to identify your magic type, or rather the type of magic you're attuned to and most likely to be able to use." Hayden said scratching at his chin, still staring at Kaj.

When Kaj asked about the bread sticks and ranch, Hayden smirked and tried to hold back his laughter. "I saw how fast you were reading in the library. Next time we go in there, we're going to go through the culinary section." Hayden chuckled. "When we're done here we can go to one of the labs and I'll throw together those machines real quick to help us out here then we can get you training on some basic magic."

Kaj smiled. "What's culinary?" He asked quietly but awkwardly. Kaj knew nothing of culinary. "I do not intend to head back to my world. I only aim to find my brothers. If possible. I'd like to settle down here, hoping it isn't as bad." Kaj looked back down at his food. "What's a dimensional signature? Is it like when the body is born from a different universe, then when moved to a different universe, it stays the same but it's different than the world they're in, per say?" This was simply Kaj's speculation. Simple guesswork, as his mind wasn't fitting itself for this type of knowledge.

"My sword might be with my brother, but I have no idea where he is." Kaj had a weird sword. If he couldn't find it, it'd be near or next to him once he slept and awoke. So maybe the library would be a good place to look around since he slept there for who knows how long. "Or it might be in the library now that I think of it." Kaj grabbed some more food to eat. He cleared his plate thing in about two more minutes. His stomach was like a trash compactor. Since he hadn't eaten any solid food until today, he could take a lot.

"So how does one train? What is training on basic magic like?" He repositioned himself to have his body face Hayden so he didn't need to turn his head. Kaj would like to stay away from the 'labs', and he spoke his mind. "I'd like to stay away from these... labs. I don't have fond memories regarding them." Including he was made in one.

"Culinary is all about food." Hayden chuckled. "Origin, this world, is a really nice place. I'm glad you plan on staying. You're kinda right about a dimensional signature, every dimension or alternate universe has a unique type of resonance frequency that can be tracked." He said.

"It might be difficult to track the sword without using the lab, but I'm sure we will figure something out. As for the magic training it's basically helping you to learn how to harness your natural powers and learn the basics of controlling them. It can be fun, but also frustrating in the beginning." Hayden could see the glimmer of fear in Kaj's eyes as he spoke about the labs, so he decided not to push it too much. "I might actually have the stuff I need to make those things in my dorm room. I could make the stuff I needed there if you'd prefer. I promise they won't hurt." Hayden still thought they would have better luck with his machines rather than just looking the old fashioned way.

Kaj tilted his head. "Harnessing? I never thought of it that way. Why does culinary sound not-about-food kinda?" Kaj's mind, once again, started to take in the information. No matter how small it seemed. "Well, how would you trace the sword? It wasn't made to be a device... exactly. I don't even know what it does. It just appeared to me one day. All it ever did was take whatever little energy/magic I could exert." But since then, he's been in so many situations where he would have died. But somehow he came through.

Kaj could feel a throbbing pain in his head. Something exerted so much energy, he could feel it. No matter how far away it was. But then he was hit with another feeling. Kaj felt a pullback towards the library. Something had either awoken there, or the person who gave him the sword had appeared in this world and now the sword was calling out to Kaj. He was unsure.

Hayden felt the sudden burst of high powered magic hit him like a wave. It seemed to be coming from outside. He shrugged it off until he saw Kaj was in pain. He scanned the area for potential attacks being made on Kaj, but read nothing on any of the frequencies that magic normally used.

"What's wrong? Are you going to be okay?" Hayden was a little confused and scared. "Do you need a doctor or are you going to be alright?"

"I-I'm fine. I just think the person who gave me the sword appeared somewhere in this universe..." Kaj muttered quietly as he stood up. "I'm going to go look in the library, but you're free to come along." He smiled brightly as he tried to figure out the way to the library. "But, um... Which way do I go to get to the library?" Kaj asked as he pointed all over the place. He wasn't good at remembering the way he came. Or it might've been because he was dragged here. "Besides. I don't think a doctor can help me. I'm bonded to the sword..." His voice trailed off as he stopped and thought for a minute.

Hayden smiled back at Kaj. "Sure I'll come with you, can't have you running around lost." He said as he stood up too. He lead Kaj back to the library walking slow enough for him to keep up, but still with a sense of urgency. "Well, I'll do whatever I can to help you with your magic and stuff. You can stay in my dorm room if you like, my last roommate got scared off by one of the monsters that pop up every now and then." Hayden was socially awkward and got a little red in the cheeks when he said that. He wasn't the best at making friends with how often he was in the labs.

As Hayden led Kaj back to the library, Kaj could feel the pull getting stronger. It made his body feel weak and his legs tremble. "I think we're getting closer." Kaj unintentionally placed his hand over Hayden's shoulder as to try and keep his own balance. He himself didn't notice what he did until a few moments later. "S-Sorry." Kaj moved to the side, running his left hand over the bindings of books. "So much... knowledge." Both his eyes began to glow as he stepped closer to his sword's location.

His chest felt tight. Kaj was starting to sweat from the heat. The heat that his own body was generating. "I-I need to take a break..." However, he didn't. He couldn't stop himself. As Kaj continued to wander around aimlessly, he came across his sword. From within its sheath, a bright yellow-ish, red-ish color could be seen emitting.

Kaj forced himself to step forward, even if he felt as if he was going to collapse. Bending down, Kaj gripped the sheath. His vision began to blur, and soon enough, he found himself passing out onto the ground.

Hayden was far stronger than he looked so supporting Kaj's weight was no big deal. However, the way he was growing weaker was concerning Hayden. He could feel the heat radiating from Kaj's body and when they saw the sword glowing Hayden was almost certain there was fire magic being used, but something else as well. The sword seemed to drain Kaj of all his energy.

"Definitely a chaneling device, but it needs to be calibrated." He said to himself after catching Kaj mid fall when he fainted. He grabbed the sword and picked up Kaj like he didn't weigh a thing and put him over his shoulder. He took Kaj back to his dorm room and laid him down on the extra bed and laid the still glowing sword on the floor. He began to construct a few machines and in a matter of minutes, he had a few things built.

He scanned both Kaj and the sword to figure out the type of magic linking them and found no trace of fire magic like he thought would be there. He used another small device to put a dampening field around the sword to prevent it from absorbing any more of Kaj's energy until he could learn more about how it worked. He hoped this would allow Kaj to regain enough strength to wake up. He also scanned Kaj to figure out what universe he was from, but it wasn't one that Hayden was familiar with. As Kaj lay there sleeping, Hayden got a rag and ran it under cold water before placing it on his forehead to try and prevent him from getting a fever.

Kaj's head twitched at the touch of the wet rag. "I-I think I-I've had enough tests. Can we just not do any today?" He turned onto his side the best he could with the energy he had left. Kaj subconsciously raised his hand to try and pushed away from the hand, but his hand never lifted. It simply twitched, just like his head did at the touch of the cold rag. And due to his subconscious attitude, the sword began to emit a brighter color. "I'll be free one day..." He soon became quiet, sleeping now. And the sword became dormant. It stopped emitting... whatever it was.


'Kaj remembered the time he was in a lab. Being torn apart and being put back together. They experimented on him while he was weak. He'd just been found in the rubble of the bombing and they took him in. Ark decided to ask Trejik for his permission to do anything to make sure his brother lived. He, of course, accepted. Now, back to the torn apart part. They replaced every organ in his body. They didn't care if he survived or die. He would just be a... 'casualty'. They soon, however, found out he did have magic. Just not the type they thought. So, during the time he was awake, they ran him through combat simulations. Live, combat simulations. For the first few times, Kaj's body was decimated. And each time, they replaced everything in his body. Ever since his "fluke", he's been able to handle things no one could handle. Well, not really handle, but live through. After a few times, Kaj started to get the hang of it. Soon after he got the hang of it, they put him against people that could manifest their magic. At first, his body melted from the inside. But after a few times, he began to transfer their dangerous energy into harmless energy. He harnessed their energy and made it so it was entirely useless. But his sword also began to emit brighter and brighter. Kaj was put into cryo every other month. But after a certain event or knowledge they learned, they put him into a cryogenic sleep for twenty years.'

{Side note. If he went through an x-ray, it would be easy to tell how many times his body has been put back together because of how his skin grew over the stitches they did.}

Then Kaj suddenly awoke. He forgot about all of that until now. "No more!" He flailed his arms frantically to anyone right in front of him or near him. His energy had returned, but not all of it. Kaj was still exhausted to a degree.

Hayden watched with concern as Kaj talked in his sleep and twitched as the sword began to glow brighter before he finally fell into a deep sleep. While he was out, Hayden did some more scanning on the sword and Kaj. He discovered something interesting. He had seen many cases of magic entanglement where people had forged magical connections with inanimate objects, but this was a far stronger bond. It was as though a portion of his soul was infused to the blade. It would explain what Kaj said about the sword finding him. Hayden thought about it for a little bit and realized it would give him a unique ability to survive nearly anything as long as the body could be salvaged. It was similar to the way his nanobots could repair nearly anything that happened to him short of being vaporized.

Hayden could tell by the way Kaj was tossing and turning in his sleep that he was reliving some horrible things, most likely the things that made him skidish about labs. He could tell Kaj was scared.

When Kaj woke and began to flail Hayden did the first thing that came to mind. The one thing you do when someone is scared. He grabbed Kaj in a hug, not caring how hard he was being hit as his body would heal easily if needed, and he tried to calm him down. "Shhh, shhh, it's okay Kaj, you aren't in the lab any more. You're safe, nobody is going to hurt you. Shhh, shhh." He spoke in the calmest voice he could. "We found your sword and you're safe, we just need to adjust the sword's properties so that it doesn't drain all your energy. It probably got altered when you were brought here." Hayden continued to hug and calm him as best he could. It felt as though his fever had gone down as he held Kaj, which meant that the dampening field was working and keeping the sword from draining him.

Kaj wasn't expecting a hug when he awoke. Even in the way he did awake. Kaj's flailing didn't last long. "W-where am I?" He didn't know why Hayden hugged him, but it helped him calm down. Knowing he was in a safe place. "H-Hayden?" Kaj's eyes turned back to him, feeling like he himself was going to cry. But he couldn't help it. Kaj hugged Hayden back tightly, trying not to cry. Kaj wasn't tough, despite how much he went through. He never remembered the combat simulations until now. But even in the combat simulations, Kaj didn't remember using magic. He felt safe with Hayden. Someone he could trust and rely on.

All that Kaj could remember was the pain. Having his insides melted. His body torn apart and put back together. The only thing that was never damaged was his eyes. His mind just somehow regrew, so they never opened his head.

Closing his eyes, he began to rest for a bit. Still awake, just resting. But Kaj also forgot he was hugging someone when he tried to rest. So, when he did remember, he released Hayden from his tight hug. "S-So. I didn't do anything too outrageous in my sleep did I?" Kaj smiled awkwardly as he rested his hand on the back of his own neck. It was an interesting that Hayden knew how to do all these things. But his mind was still wondering where they were. Maybe in a dorm room? It might've been where Hayden slept, going by how it looked.

Hayden smiled gently when Kaj remembered who he was. As much as he hated the circumstances, he really enjoyed the hug. It had been a while since he been able to show any affection toward anyone as his parents never really visited and most of his friends weren't the touchy feely type.

As the hug ended, Hayden felt a little awkward and scratched at the back of his head like he always did when he was unsure of what to say or do. "No, nothing really outrageous, but you seemed to be going through some kind of post traumatic flash back and I think I figured out at least part of what's going on." He tried to focus a little more on the situation, but found himself looking into Kaj's eyes, they were a little mesmerizing with their different colors. "Right..." He stammered trying to bring himself back to what was going on "The sword and you are connected through a bond stronger than any magic bond I've ever seen. It's like there's literally a piece of your soul infused to the sword. And I'm guessing when things happened to you they were things that would have killed anyone else, well except maybe me. The headache you got was the sword basically trying to reboot you. Whatever brought you here to Origin probably wasn't too friendly and the sword was giving you your memories back, but at the same time it seemed to be draining your energy so I put it in a dampening field until we could figure out how to... I guess re-calibrate it so it doesn't drain your energy. It's basically a backup copy of you and when ever anything happens to your body, it saves all of your memories and then uploads them back into your body when you're healed. " Hayden looked concerned for Kaj, something he rarely felt for others, but something about him seemed to bring out Hayden's human side.

"I hope you don't mind me bringing you to my dorm room... and scanning you and your sword. It seems you're not from any of the universes I've documented here, but it's a big multiverse. As for the magic you'd be attuned to, I would have thought fire magic given the heat you put off, but it seems like you're a neutral, meaning you could become very skilled in any if not all types of magic if you trained properly." Hayden smiled at that bit of information, hoping it would cheer Kaj up to know that he had amazing potential.

Kaj rubbed his eyes, trying to clear up the slightly blurry vision he had. "My... soul?" He was still waking up, but that wasn't the first thing he'd expect to hear.

"A reboot?" Kaj looked at the sword, sighing. "That's a new one." Now he wanted to hug Hayden again but didn't know why. "Why am I even here?" In other words, why was he made? "I can see the magic. I can see strands, almost as if I can grab them." Kaj reached forward into thin air, grabbing nothing. "They told me I was a failed experiment. They wanted to recreate someone, but they failed. But, I guess there are some things worth living for..." Kaj was an empty vessel. Though, what Hayden was saying made sense to him. He barely caught what Hayden said last because he was too caught up in how the scientists showed him how he was unable to have magic. "I can?"

Bringing his hand back to chest level, he opened his hand to see the energy coming up. "I don't mean to seem like a burden. It's just that I've had a... weird day. Besides that, I hope you're still my teacher." He was hoping nothing changed when he passed out. Kaj always overthought things.

Hayden felt his heart drop as he heard those words; failed experiment. "You're so much more than an experiment." Hayden said looking into his eyes once more. "Those scientists may have been trying to create someone else, but don't ever think you were a mistake." Hayden hugged him once more before letting go.

"I'd still love to be your teacher, I just hope I can give you the help you need. It might be wise to enroll here as well. Not to mention the Headmaster could give you a good checkup to make sure you're healthy. I could go with you, and I'll see if he will let you move into my dorm here, since the last guy is gone, and I could help you after classes and stuff." Hayden's eyes lit up with the thought of having Kaj here and helping him to reach his potential.

"But for now it looks like you could use a little more rest. I'll be here if you need anything. I'm going to try and figure out if I can fix your sword so it doesn't kill you while giving your memories back." He smiled and went to his gadgets. It was quite the sight to see when he was working. Tools and other high tech stuff would fly through the air right into his hands as he needed them, his nanobots would pour out of his fingers like a liquid and start reprogramming and even rebuilding them to do what he needed them to do. He was trying to build something that could adjust the sword's properties.

"Hmm, maybe it wasn't draining your energy after all. Maybe it was uploading the most current version of you, so to speak, and taking sample so that it had a version of you to upload to you if something happens again." Hayden spoke as the thought hit him out of the blue. "Maybe I shouldn't have put the field around this after all." He pondered. "Do you think I should take it off and let it finish?" Hayden asked as he didn't want to cause Kaj more pain if it wasn't needed.
