Xian Jiao

Xian Jiao is a born-mage with a considerable inherent talent, seeking greater finesse and control with that talent.

0 · 158 views · located in Academia Celestia

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Jyllaby

Description

Xian Jiao is of Chinese descent, though she herself speaks none of the language. She is a water and wood born-mage, without reliance on spellbooks or memorization. Her spells take intense concentration and incredible physical energy to cast, and she does require reagents for them.

Personality

Stoic and reserved, Xian Jiao would rather follow directives than create trouble, even when she objects to those directives.

Equipment

Her robes conceal many pouches, each with a different reagent. Jade, gold, wood, and bone beads are only some of the many things her spells require.

So begins...

Xian Jiao was seated in front of one of the great trees that provided the courtyard with shade, her left wrist wrapped 'round with thick bracelets of various-coloured beads. She had her right hand pulled away from the tree, and was concentrating intensely. As she sat, the bark slowly split and the wood pushed outwards with new growth; a tiny new branch wound out of the tree and began to tangle itself into an intricately-woven spherical lattice. Xian Jiao opened her eyes and smiled to herself at the new growth. This academy did seem to be providing assistance to her abilities. She untied her bracelet, pulled a wooden bead off, and crushed it between her teeth. The new branch whipped around and slid back into the tree and the bark closed back up around it, showing no evidence that it had ever been there. Satisfied, Xian Jiao leaned against the tree and unpacked her lunch.

Xian Jiao sat bolt upright, startled, as the be-goggled boy slams into her tree. "What!" she exclaimed, not yet aware enough of what had happened to be terribly coherent about it. "I!" she stated meaninglessly. She sort of scuttled away from the tree and inspected her new guest. "What do you think you're doing, idiot?!" she cried out. "I am sitting her trying to eat my lunch and suddenly you come rolling in out of nowhere!" She stood up and dusted off her robes with a disgusted expression on her face, shaking her head.

Xian snarled back, "Idiot boy! You are clearly very aerodynamic if you made a flight like the one that catapulted you into the middle of my otherwise-peaceful day!" She took a deep breath. "If you will excuse me, I have to get back to practice."

She turned away from the boy, sat back down on the ground by the tree and snapped one of her bracelets, took a large handful of jade beads from it and blew softly into her palm. Tiny droplets of water began to form on the surface of the beads, and slowly, a globe of clear and shining water formed above her hand, and the jade beads dwindled in size, eventually disappearing when the water globe had grown to about the size of a soccer ball. She appeared to be concentrating intensely, and the ball changed shape, gradually forming into a clear sheet of water hovering just over the ground. Xian smiled in satisfaction, and pressed her fingers against the underside of the water. Slowly, the water began to form into the shape she was guiding it into. Her eyes were fixed on her work, and a drop of blood oozed from her lip as she bit into it from the focus.

Xian snorted, paying maybe half-attention as she deftly pressed and pulled the water into rolling hills, high mountains, deep valleys, and bamboo forests. It looked almost like a glass sculpture of a Chinese landscape. "You're clearly not bright enough to not get your ass rocketed sky-high while fooling around with your magic," she said. Frowning, she tilted the landscape around. "Perfect," she muttered to herself, then grinned tightly, "But it'll have to do." She snapped her fingers and the water pulled itself back into a ball. She gently grasped it, twisted it, and split it into two smaller spheres. She took one and deposited it in her hair, where it saturated every strand. She formed the other ball into a round, flat, mirror-like surface. She concentrated on her hair, using the water inside it to form it into various shapes. She grinned at her reflection. "Are you still here?" she asked the boy casually, turning to look at him, her hair spiked into huge and wickedly sharp and curved horns, but writhing into new shapes.

Xian frowned. "Blaze? Really? Oh, let me guess, you're a fire mage." She disregarded the proffered hand, and her hair writhed. "I've really had it up to here with your kind. Every fire mage I've ever met seems to think I'm some kind of threat. Talking about how I'll put out their fires or something." Xian began to gain steam on her rant. "I don't know what you fire mages came to this academy for, but I came here to learn, not get in stupid fights with a lot of idiots who all believe there's some kind of instinctive bullshit that needs to happen between fire and water mages! And I'm not just a damn water mage! I'm also a wood mage! I can manipulate trees! But if I tell them that," she paused for breath, "Then they just say it's even more natural that we should be rivals because fire burns wood! In the chinese tradition of Wu Xing, in which my magic is deeply rooted, that is NOT HOW IT WORKS! There is a CYCLE of generation! Water nourishes wood, wood feeds fire, fire becomes earth, earth yields metal, metal carries water! What the hell do you think the god damned beads are for?!" She brandishes the bracelet at him angrily. "Look - Jade for water, wood for wood, gold for metal, bone for earth, volcanic glass for fire! I use the beads to shape the way the magic works!" She has begun to yell, "You're an idiot! You're such a bloody idiot!" Her concentration finally broke and she was doused with the water she had been using, and she broke down in tears. "Go away! I didn't want to do this today! God damned fire mages!" She wept bitterly, and as she held her hands up to her face, the long sleeves of her robes fell to her elbows, revealing many large burn scars.

Xian rubbed her eyes and stared up at the elf, her face red from crying. "Oh, uh, uh..." she blinked and hastily lowered her arms so the sleeves would cover them. "Nothing, nothing's going on, I'm just...having a bad day...it's not his fault?" She attempts, weakly, to smile. "Everything is fine, don't worry!" She stood up and began to wring the water out of her hair.

Xian looked back and forth from Captain Anazura to Blaze. "I...guess I'm fine? I'm just very tired, and fire mages keep attacking me out of the blue and this guy came sailing out of the sky and I just sort of lost my cool because I was so afraid he'd try to fight me too because he had just been in a fire fight over there and that's how he got over here and," she took a breath, "I'm okay now, though."

Xian Jiao rubs her eyes with her sleeves and looks at the ground. "I didn't want to cause any trouble...I thought it would be better just to let it go, because it's happened several times and I thought if I got them expelled they'd all come up against me...but it's been a few times a month ever since the start of the term." She stared at the ground miserably. "I just hoped if I kept to myself no one would bother me..."

Xian stared after Blaze. "Cheeky," she muttered, "Disappears in the middle of a tongue-lashing..." She bit her lip and nodded at the Captain. "Thank you, Captain. I appreciate your intervention in this matter." She bowed deeply. "May I go?"

Xian chews her lip miserably, and it shows the effects of much such abuse. "I - am Xian Jiao. I live in a private room in the dormitories on the west side of the campus."

Xian collected her lunch and headed for the dormitories. Class would have to wait for a more emotionally stable day, it seemed.
