Setting

Image

This city has everything. Skyscrappers, various other buildings with rooftops that you can run and jump across, magic and science working hand in hand, it was a place that you could really enjoy. Of course, there was the occasional Demon Beast that got inside and on the loose, and sometimes even a huge swarm of Demon Beasts would swarm inside the city to invade, but between the residents and the guards, they are usually crushed fairly quickly.

The center of the city is probably the Plaza, which connects the Plaza's active market area, to a large scale park with a rather nice fountain at the center, to the Government Castle, to the various other businesses and streets.

There are even Portal and Warp pads for those coming in and out of the city through such methods, and magical beasts can even be sold as pets. There are even people who sell Apps that allow one to cast spells!

It has many points of interest, from the Adventurer's Guild HQ, which also houses the famous bar Destara, which is frequented by people of all types but especially those of Adventurer. Requests can be put up here for all kinds of tasks, and also can be used for large scale meeting involving the development and safety of various regions of the planet. There are usually enough high ranking adventurers here to fight off an entire invasion, domenstic or foreign to the planet.

There is also the Universal Port, for both navy ships, space ships, and other kinds of vessels. It houses some of the navy and defense forces, and is capable of fitting multiple Super Dreadnaughts thanks to Space Folding Magic and Technology.

Additionally, one of the major central points is also Astrius Academy, which is often full of action, education, mischief, and adventure. From a student's project or experiment, to the Headmaster's whimsical side, to Pan Dimensional Anomalies spitting out the occasional monster trying to invade this world through the Academy for some reason, Astrius Academy is a shield, place of training, place where innocent normal children receive education, and a place where specialists can go to refine and experiment on any possible subject*.

*Experiments that result in the Academy getting destroyed are banned on principle.

Astrius Academy is always accepting and desiring more students though, its funds coming from the success of it's students, and very generous donations who want to see this talent flourish (and then scout them for their own gains).

Uptown, there is the Governence Castle, where the Royal Family lives and the government operates out of. There are also high end homes of the wealthy, such as Vitas, as well as a Dragon Knight Academy.

On the south end, there is a famous and popular beach that has maintained the standards of bathing culture from the old times, from nude bathing to various recreational activities, it is a popular spot in the city. There is also a cafe, Shialio's, known to serve some of the best coffee and tea in the city. The place has since expanded to take up an entire block on a street, allowing it to serve all types and provide a wonderful array of seating arrangements.

On the east side, there is the Watchgear United HQ, which produces various forms of combat gear on military, adventurer, and civilian markets. There is also the famous water park Merios, where one can expect good laughter and good soaking.

Downtown, among some nicer lower income neighborhoods, there is also some areas known to have criminal groups and gangs around, and also rumors of a Black Market type location also persist around the area. Various homes, appartment buildings, and such exist in the area, as well as areas to house, employ, and help refugees.

(Yeah, I was not quite sure what to post, so this was the best I came up with. Sorry for the delay, but RL stuff kept me occupied the past few days)

Of course, Iviri was still not coming out. After all, he had to take Demor to Questrios City. Whether others came with them was up to them and Demor, but Iviri planned to wait unless some part of the situation changed. Of course, currently he was getting his back washed by Jaune. His face was red with embarassment, though that was more due to the words that came out of Jaune's mouth. He was either oblivious, or just didn't think much of it, but Jaune averaged about four to five embarrassing sentences per minute, at least.

"Come on Iviri, lets play with each other!"

That sentence, which could be misconstrued in a whole variety of ways, actually meant the basketball court they had in here, or the video game room, which also had a small bath that you could soak in while playing.

No wonder this place was so popular...it was basically a community center.

Iviri had no idea what to do while he waited for Demor to finish flirting, and Liam had been left on his own for the moment, having been enjoying the company of the females until a moment ago. Because of that, despite himself being new to Origin and getting embarrassed, playing Basketball in the nude (as obviously the towels would not hold themselves up playing a sport), he was unable to say anything as an excuse to stop Jaune from pulling him away.

In the meantime though, Liam watched Iviri and Jaune run off before looking back at Demor. Iviri had actually already registered with the Guild, but was new and unknown, very low on the rankings. Meanwhile, Demor seemed totally new...he wondered if he could pull him in to join the Adventurer's Guild? It seemed like he would make a good addition.

If he saw an opportunity, he would ask Demor for sure, and made sure to stay close by.

The game between Iviri and Jaune meanwhile...turned in a rather surprising way. After some banter by Jaune, Iviri temporarily forgot the situation and went into play mode, forgetting his situation, and was winning by 10-6. That said, suddenly Kimaru jumped onto Jaune's shoulder and whispered something into his ear.

"Huh...is he sure?"

"What is it?"

"Ah, well....hmm".

Jaune then looked over towards Demor from the basketball court, which was not that far away, and waved at him.

"Hey, you two are going to Questrios right? YOu want to go together? I just got word from someone I might be needed there anyways, so I thought it would be more convienent for everyone if we all went together. What do you say?"

"Are you entered the Grand Magi Games?"

"Yeah. By the way Iviri, nice ball playing".

And Jaune's innocent but poor word choice embarrassed Iviri, making him hold the basketball in front of him.

"Thats an interesting way to hold it...did you forget? Do you want me to help?"

"Oh my...how does he not hear what comes out of his own mouth?"

"By the way, you fell on your butt pretty hard back there. Do you want me to get some ointment to rub on it fir..."

"Demor! We should probably leave soon so we can get a decent hotel room! Maybe right now even!"

Iviri, who had done his very best not to rush Demor at this point, had a face that probably could not get any more red or embarrassed that it was right now. As nice as Jaune was, he lacked any and all ability to see issues with his own words or actions...

"Demor! YOu should join us! Also, I learned a lot of Iviri's ticklish spots if you want to take advantage of them right now!"

"...you are doing this on purpose, aren't you?"

"Doing what on purpose?"

"Uhg!"

Demor sighed as he was given the cold shoulder, quite literally, and his advances were pushed back past the starting point. Right... so don't use magic around the Aschen girls... got it.... Sighing, Demor let the water fall and stayed there for a moment, eyes looking at his reflection in the water. He was about to open his mouth and speak to Montrose again in an attempt to salvage the situation, but then Iviri called out, seemingly in slight anguish and in need of assistance. Turning his head towards the younger male, Demor nodded and sighed, standing.

"Well then... since I am such an affront to you... I suppose I will do you a favor and get out of your lovely red hair.... farewell, Admiral." Demor said, his voice a bit soothing, though hurt. tossing his towel around his neck as he walked towards the boys, stopping about seven feet away and shifting his weight to his right hip as he looked at the two younger males.

"I suppose that we should go, then, Iviri. I've been given the cold shoulder... should try my luck with one of those other girls I suppose." he grinned, tail twitching playfully behind him as he crossed his arms in front of him. Pausing a moment, he considered his options, then nodded, turning to step towards the locker room, pausing once to cast a curious glance at Montrose before looking away and then heading into the locker room. Once there, he grabbed a fresh towel or two and began to dry himself off, humming a Draconian Lullaby to himself while he did so.

"Something on your mind, Iviri?" he asked, sensing that there was something indeed on the boy's mind, at least a little anyway.

(Sorry if its kinda shit. Trying to get the flow going again, and move things along so the people who want to be in the Grand Magi Games can start it soon as well)

With their course of action decided, the group returned to the changing room, and the two of them got their clothes on and got all of their possessions. Afterwards, Jaune decided to pay for everything on his treat, without even a wince or second thought, but once the payment was done...he took out a strange stone...

Iviri, having been on Origin for awhile now, recognized what it was.

"Wait wait, we don't have to..."

But before Iviri could finish protesting, Jaune threw the stone onto the ground, and a large vortex seemed to appear in it. That was because it was a Class-A City to City Warp Stone. Crazy expensive, takes about a week to fully recharge, and also...the trip is one rather shakey and disorienting ride, even if it will only be a few seconds.

And so with the intention of heading to Questrios, Jaune immediately grabbed both Iviri's and Demor's hands and leapt into the vortex, warping to Questrios in an instant.

This was the first time Castalia had been outside in...too long. (Look, she wasn't proud of it, okay? Just...sometimes she lost track of time. That's all.)

She rubbed her arms through her jacket as she shuffled down the sidewalk, keeping her head down. No need to zone out and stare at someone for too long. She reached up and tugged at her choppily cut hair. Then she tugged harder, until she could feel the dull pain on her scalp. Bad habit. She knew. Along with biting her lip until it ached. Times like these she really knew she was messed up. A hoarse laugh forced itself out of her mouth at that thought. She cut it off quickly, and looked up, eyes darting quickly to see if anyone had noticed her laughing to herself like the freak she was.

Maybe she should've stayed inside for another day.

The bathhouse of Hayslem city would find itself visited by Demor again, who by happenstance, had managed to find out that Iviri's brother was a private detective. So, inviting Iviri to the bathhouse again, Demor waited in the locker rooms, hoping his young friend would show up. It had only been a few hours since Demor's visit with the Aschen IIA, and though he wasn't given a specific consequence of what would happen if he failed to find evidence of Montrose's whereabouts, he didn't necessarily want to find out. Being tied to a chair while naked and being yelled at and hit wasn't fun at all. At least, not to Demor, and not in that particular circumstance.

Sighing as he disrobed and grabbed a towel, Demor headed once more to the massage tables, to take place in one of those mind-blowingly relaxing massages that he had taken part in last time he was here. All he had to do, was wait for Iviri to show up again. Hopefully he wouldn't have to wait too long.

It did not take long for Iviri to arrive at the bathhouse once more, however it was in a bit of a different situation then he might have expected. That was because instead of being alone, he was with someone. Someone far younger then him, but looked eeriely identical.

That was because he was Iviri's little brother, Ixian. He was also one of the strongest Rixys out there. As for why they were coming to the bathhouse...they were both covered in a strange green goop.

"Let me guess....Eldritch Horror attacked Astrius Academy, you two got involved in the fight, now you need a bath?"

"Close. It attacked Millenium Plaza" Iviri corrected, as the two went into the changing area. They put their clothes in a section that designated them to be washed and cleaned, got some towels, and then went to shower the green goop off, before they entered the general bathing area.

"This place...makes a lot of sense" Ixian said, as he drooped the towel over his shoulder instead of covering himself.

"Ixian! Cover up!"

"Why?" Ixian said, not really getting why anyone would be so bothered by it.

"...why cant you just learn common sense...it was bad enough when you attracted all that attention fighting off that huge mercenary force in that one town, but cant you at least try a bit harder to blend in?"

Ixian just looked at his brother with a confused look, driving Iviri further into frustation. Given they were both clones of the same person, one had to admire how different they turned out.

Demor perked up at hearing Iviri's voice, and propped his head up as the lovely massage therapist ladies and the strange tendrils worked their magic on his body, his face one of bliss. "Hey~! Iviri! Over here!" he called out, waving a hand towards the boy and his brother. "Good to see you again... who's this~?" he asked, looking to Ixian, not caring that he wasn't covered. Then again, neither was Demor.

"Glad you came by - I was gonna try and find you anyway, I need to talk to you." He said calmly.

"Oh, Demor! Nice job in the Grand Magi Games" Iviri said, while Ixian had a sort of mischevous smile remembering them as well. But all that passed as they walked towards Demor. Ixian was the youngest and smallest brother Demor had encountered so far, but as he approached...Demor could probably sense it, deep down. A great and vast darkness and danger, something that often only accompanied people who had killed in the past, and who could do it professionally.

"This is my little brother, Ixian. Ixian, this is Demor" Iviri said as he introduced them. Ixian however seemed facinated by Demor's tail, and ran over to grab it. "Ixian! Dont grab people's tails without permission! Sorry bout that Demor, but when he isn't working, he tends to be like this. Anyways, what did you need to talk about?"

Demor's tail helped him with his natural affinity for kids, or at least kid-like people. As Ixian ran up to try and grab his tail, his tail would move to try and grab the boy in return, coiling around his body and picking him up playfully while Demor noted the slightly killer look about the boy - many people weren't as they seemed here. He looked to Iviri and smiled again. "He's fine, don't worry about it." he said.

Moving on, his face became a little more serious. "I did some digging... and found that one of your brothers is a private investigator of sorts?" he asked. "I'm in a bit of a pickle... and I need the help of an investigator." he explained.

"Okay. Just...dont provoke any weird competitions from him. He can get pretty serious sometimes with those...by the way, Ixian...I could have swore I saw you at the Grand Magi Games actually..."

"I didn't participate!"

"I am going to have to ask you about that later" Iviri said, before looking back at Demor. "Ah, yes! Not surprised you heard of him, he is a very well known detective these days. Of course, all that public attention often gets people to come after him, but...he always ends up out smarting them. Last bounty hunters that went out of him, he apparently messed up so bad, they are still in therapy bawling their eyes out".

Iviri had gotten a little off topic, but that last part was very impressive...and maybe also concerning. There were a number of bounty hunters who were hardened sociopaths and psychopaths after all, so to reduce some of them to going to therapy was terrifying in its own right.

"I have his phone number if you want to call him" Ixian said, taking out a cell phone from...hold on, where did he get that from? And why did the phone have a case styled like a white ghost?

Demor listened idly, and with his tail, set Ixian down back on his feet. It was at that moment, coincidentally, that his massage ended, and he was able to get off of the table, using his tail as a sort of chair, curling it at the bottom to form a base before lifting himself up, and crossed his legs, lowering himself until he was comfortable. He set his towel on his lap.

His predatory eyes settled upon the phone, and then Ixian. Where did he conjure that phone from? Narrowing those eyes, Demor examined Ixian curiously, looking at him with more detail, sensing out what sort of magic he could conjure. The Male Drachini was silent for a moment while he considered it.

"Can you call him? I'd like to talk to him." he said. Truthfully, Demor didn't entirely know how cell-phone's worked quite yet. He could figure out a regular telephone, and had one in his apartment, but he rarely used it.

Demor's plan was thus: He knew where Montrose was last seen, but after that, he didn't know how to proceed. He'd let the professional track her down, and then figure out the rescue plan himself. Granted of course, that he could meet the time-deadline that the Aschen agents had given.

"Alright" the two brothers said, as Ixian began to dial. Once he did, and he set it to speaker.

"Welcome to Starnet, your calling network throughout the stars. I am the Artificial Intelligence that monitors and maintains this cellular network. Please hold, your brother is currently in the middle of presenting his deduction on who murdered a man and stole his award winning top of the line violin made from Elderwood, and which had strings created from a dragon".

"That is...an oddly specific hold request message".

"Thank you".

"...and it responded".

The phone let up some elevator music, before it was picked up.

"Ixian?! What is it?! Are you okay?" the voice asked, shocked, before he calmed down a bit. "Wait, you are not calling me to ask for another loan to buy another sniper rifle, right?"

"Nooo! Iviri is here with me, as well as this one guy who..."

"Needs a mystery solved?"

"Yeah! How did you know?"

"Honestly, not that much of a deduction. YOu would be surprised how many times this happens...anyways, so what is the mystery?"

"Oh yeah..." Ixian said, looking at Demor. "You never told us, what do you need investigated? If its how to get into a place, I can help you here! One of my specialties is siegecraft and enemy deployment!"

"An Aschen Admiral has gone missing." Demor stated flatly. No point in hiding anything. "Long story short, she went missing outside a local VR Arcade, and I was the last person anyone saw with her. I need to find her and rescue her before I am in turn made to disappear. At least, I think that's what they'll to me." he explained.

"My name is Demor, I'm a friend of Iviri's and I participated in the Games recently. The Admiral's name is Amelia Montrose." he went on. He paused for a moment for the information to sink in. "Can you help me? I have a limited window to find her... I wager about 68 hours now."

He paused again, crossing his arms and lowering himself further on his tail, adding more to the coiled base he was balancing on. "If you want... I can give you some pictures of what she looks like." he stated one last quick thing before sighing. Besides the talk of cost of hiring him, Demor didn't really have anything else to discuss.

"I see....An Aschen Admiral huh? ANd her name is Amelia Montrose....and 68 hours? I see, probably some secret police or secret spy service then. Some pictures would help though, especially for what she was wearing. If I know what clothes she was wearing, that would help. Anyways, it sounds interesting, so I can help. Also can help you disappear if it comes to that. But first off...I need to know from an outside source, and not Ixian who has no concept of love or Iviri, who is too timid to speak of such things properly...but how hot was she?"

"Ivera?"

"This is important. FIrst, we have to establish motive. The Aschen are infamous for being Anti-Alien, and so in response, there are a lot of extremist groups that would love to get their hands on her. However, most of those groups operate off of Terra, and dont have much of a pressence on Origin. That said, due to the influx of refugees from the war, it is entirely possible she was abducted by someone, or a group of people even, who held a grudge against hte Aschen for the chaos and hate they have caused. But we also cant immediately leap to that conclusion".

"So then, you were asking if she were hot because..."

"Because the Aschen are known for gene manipulation, and I heard they manipulate their people to be breathtakingly beautiful. If its an Admiral, its likely more so, but I have to account for personal taste, hence why I asked Demor who had seen her in person. Also, I need to know how tall she is, her build, and such. If she is bigger, the amount of ways to carry her and transport her would be limited. Also, Ixian. Since you are currently closer to the site of abduction then me, I need you to hack into the city's security system. They probably tried to avoid being detected, but to move a person without being noticed, they would need a vehicle. Living things dont tend to fit will into trans-dimensional storage devices, and since they went out of their way to abduct her, they shouldn't have killed her and then stored the body".

As Ivera's mind went to work, even though Demor could not see his face, the way he talked and the way he thought was already pretty impressive.

"...hold on, did you say a VR Arcade? Nevermind that, we can rule out refugees. They are more recent, and if the Aschen operatives cant track her, that means knowledge of the city. In other words, someone local. Locals have not had much interaction with the Aschen, so they have not had the opportunities to form bias and hate. In other words, the chance of a hate crime is astronomically low. Also, you recently participated in the Games? So this happened in Questrios then, right after the Games, when there would still be a large population of visitors in Questrios. Yet, they got her out without witnesses?"

There was an audible sound of a drink being sipped, and some tapping.

"Okay, there are a few possibilities I can think of right off the bat. I will be there soon to narrow things down, but until then, I suspect it could be one of a few organizations. First off is Spiral, a terrorist organization known for all sorts of crap. They are also believed to make a lot of money off of their crimes, so its possible that they kidnapped her to cause chaos, and also maybe to sell to someone who does want an Aschen Admiral. There are also local crime lords. SOmeone as beautiful as her, its possible a crime lord desired her so much they kidnapped her and dragged her off to be his, or her, personal...well, you get the idea. I suppose its also entirely possible she came across one by chance, casually insulted him or her, and they abducted her to fill out some sort of revenge fantasy. At this point, I can still only theorize, but there is an extremely high probability she is still in Questrios City. Well, what do you think? Anything else you might know that we can add to the situation?"

It had become pretty clear why Ivera Rixy was known as a Master Detective now.

Demor let the detective work his magic, nodding along to the points he was making. The kid was smart for damn sure. No question about that in the slightest. At the question of whether or not she was hot, Demor let out a small chuckle. "Yes. I found her very attractive." he answered. His tail shifted, and so too did his sitting position while he leaned back on it more.

So it had to be someone who was local to the planet, and someone with enough power and know how to keep the Aschen IIA off of their tail. Or at least, far enough away from their tail to lose them - if only temporarily. Luckily for the Aschen, Demor wasn't going to just get reputable information, he was going to find her. He'd made it his mission. Idly he could sometimes feel the eyes of the IIA operative on him, watching him, but he ignored it, and focused on the here and and now.

"I've got some pictures if you'd be interested in meeting up... we could discuss payment as well. Assuming you operate like any other Private Investigator or Detective." Demor said as Ivera finished his half-rant half-deductions. "Though to be honest you've given me enough information for me to act on my own and find her myself." he said. Demor had a few ideas of what could be going on with Montrose's disappearance. A beautiful, high-ranking Aschen Officer? Many would kill to get their hands on her, many would do more to do worse to her. That made her valuable, and worth a lot of money...

Clearing his throat, he waited for Ivera's answer.

"Nah, I will take the case. This seems interesting, and also somewhat problematic down the line. Besides, it also seems rather concerning that someone is able to so easily kidnap someone off the streets like this" Ivera replied, as various moving and rummaging could be heard in the background. "That said, there is one thing of note. If you know this person, that means you were in contact with this Admiral at least once to make significant contact right? In that case, there might be more then one organization watching you right now. As for payment, that all depends on what happens and how well the investigation goes. Besides, you dont seem like someone native to Origin either, so we have a better chance if I handle it".

At the same time, the sound of wind could be heard on the other side of the phone, indicating he was outside, and maybe running.

"So, should we meet up at the scene of the crime, or before? Or do you want to focus on losing the people who are following you?"

"I really dont think anyone has followed him here, Ivera..."

"Nope, thats wrong Ixian. Something like this, he is absolutely being watched right at this moment. If you are where I think you are...use the secret back exit".

"...there is a secret back exit?"

"There is always a secret back exit, but this time I am not just referring to the employees entrance, nor the underground sewer access, nor the roof access. I mean the one they set up far in advance and concealed using both magic, tech, and just generally intelligent thinking for super VIPs like Royalty".

"I go here more then you....how do you...nevermind, its you. Of course you know this" Iviri replied, sighing and giving up on understanding how his brother knew all of this. He then turned towards Demor. "Well the good news is he is interested, so it should be fine. Just, dont be surprised if you dont always immediately get what he is saying".

Demor considered his options before shrugging. "I'll meet you at the VR Arcade she was last seen at. As for Secret Back Exit... You two can use it if you want. If I don't want to be followed, then they're not going to follow me." Demor was casual with his tone, but at the same time, he wasn't messing around. Despite his relaxed tone, his stance and body language dictated something else. As seen in the Grand Magic Games, he could easily and consistently move at speeds too fast for the human eye to comprehend, even when in dire circumstances such as low magic power, or even injuries to his body.

He rubbed Iviri's head affectionately as the boy stated that he wouldn't understand what his brother was saying sometimes, and smiled. "Don't worry about me, Iviri. I'll be alright." he smirked. "You two enjoy the baths... I'm off to meet your brother." he said, his tail stretching and bringing him to his feet, allowing him to walk away towards the locker-rooms where he could get dressed, and then walked out the front door. On one hand, it was smart to try and find a secret back door, but on the other hand, the Aschen likely knew where the VR Arcade was anyway, so they'd inevitably find him again anyway.

First, Demor went to his home, grabbing a picture or two of Montrose for Ivera to use in the investigation, before heading towards the Arcade in Questrios
