Setting

One of the highest, and possibly the highest, points of Astrius Academy, The Roost is where all of Astrius Academy's birds are kept. It is also currently the home of one Ollie Luna, a student who has taken over the area for his own interest.

Upon entering, one would first find that there is a massive amount of birds of all types. Not just normal cardinals, canaries, and bluejays, but also phoenixes and other mythical birds as well. None of them are kept in cages however, and are instead freely allowed to live and thrive here. There are countless large tunnels for birds bigger then humans to fly freely in and out of hte tower, though the tower interior seems capable of maintaining a nice temperature despite whatever it is outside.

Near the center, an old storage room near the top of the tower has been revamped into a personal quarters. There is a large mattress on the ground, various furniture like desks and a couch around, as well as a large side room for practicing magic. If one were to delve further into these belongings, they would find it is the property of Ollie Luna.

If it was not obvious, Ollie really loves both freedom and birds. He loves the freedom of the wing, and of the wind.

Ollie had finally finished his latest masterpiece of his Bird related magic, specifically the summoning and binding of a new Bird Familiar. He was sure he had perfected it this time, the lost masterpiece of the great Bird Mage of the Caikora Continent, the legendary spell that would summon a Champion or even Hero class bird!

Ollie woould use this spell to surely gain a new friend for sure! He was positive it would work! And then, he could soar the skies on the back of one of the greatest birds of the universe! It was brilliant, brilliant! With this, he was now sure it would work. Of course, the initial summoning ritual had to be done before he could summon him freely.

And so, Ollie put a drop of his own blood into the center of the Magic Array, and began chanting in early Okan. "Asmoria! Dessero, Dessero, Dessero! Magaris, fil thennem dei! Rozullen morus vei! Cillio! Cillio! Cillio! Astora yumagis dei!"

He said that as he did a series of arm and hand movements, before slamming his hands together and shouting the final line in the common language.

"Now come forth, great bird of the skies! Come forth, Champion Wing!"

The golden flash of light that had pulled Cal away from his lunch placed him down now in some unknown part of the school he had never been before.

He looked around and by the look of the pointed roof, it seemed clear they were in one of the towers of the school, judging by the birds he assumed it was the roost that he had heard about for all the birds that assisted students.

"What the hell am I doing..." He cut himself off, seeing the young boy in front of him. There was something off about him. Cal's scythe appeared in his hand out of nowhere and it had a glowing dark purple aura. His eyes began to glow as well.


"Why am I here, did you bring me here?" He questioned as he pointed the scythe at him. It didn't look like he was going to attack him, but rather like he was accusing him of something.

It might have seemed a little bit scary given the size and age difference as well as the huge black wings. Oddly, though the boy seemed to be smiling

"Why are you looking at me like that?"

"Woo hoo! It worked!" were the first words to leave Ollie's mouth the moment that Cal arrived, as he jumped forward with the intention to hug what appeared...that was, before a scythe was placed in front of him with a purplish aura. Meanwhile, the tool he had used to cast this magic, a feather that looked perfect and majestic and attracted the eyes just by being out, seemed to glow a golden and white aura and repelled the aura caused by the scythe.

"Ah! Ah! Right! My name is Ollie, and I summoned you here using this Magic Array on the ground! It is specifically designed to summon and bind a new Bird Familiar to me! You see, its power will let me summon a legendary Bird Champion, and it is extremely advanced! Oh, to think I finally replicated it perfectly and got it to work! Hurray!"

Suddenly, it dawned on Ollie...he had no introduced himself.

"Ah, my name is Ollie Luna, a student at Astrius Academy! Have you heard of it? Oh oh, I promise you will have a lot of fun here!"

As he said that, almost as if it was specifically set up to happen that way, several birds flew out from behind Cal and past him, as they flew all around the room. One of them was even the incredibly rare rainbow bird.

"A bird familiar? I think you made a mistake, I'm not a bird." Cal said a bit more calm now that he was getting a grip on the situation. The feather that was glowing and repelling the aura from the scythe got his attention, he knew it must be some sort of artifact like his scythe.

He forced the scythe to disappear and the glowing stopped.

"I think there must have been a mistake of some kind, I am a student at the academy. I'm not a bird of any kind, regardless of what my wings may suggest. I think it may have been that feather there that brought me here, not the spell you cast. Anyway, my name is Calvance, but you can call me Cal if you like. I'm a new student here from Gialpha originally."

As Cal spoke, Ollie slipped the feather back into his sleeve as Cal spoke. However, the aura itself did not disappear until after the scythe did as well, indicating some sort of reaction or connection. Ollie knew what it likely was, but decided not to go into it if Cal didn't. It was not something he often used, at least in front of others.

"No no. You have bird wings right? And this spell was very exact! It was definently to summon the ultimate Bird Familiar, something or someone known as the Bird Champion....perhaps, it is a different word on your world then? Languages, translations, they can be tricky if you are not careful".

As he said that, it appeared Ollie was still not convinced at what Cal said. Ollie's bare feet went across the floor as he went over to a desk and took a large notebook from it, turning around to show him it. Notably, the formula...the magic array...on the ground was identical to the one in the notebook, though it appeared parts had been missing and were then calculated. If Cal were to look over the calculations though, it was clear there were no mistakes...so there was no reason yet understood as to why he would be called. At least, until he brought up the feather.

"Ah yes! This definently confirms it also! I can't really go into detail....but this feather was given to me by someone I admire, before they told me to come here...and you are already a student? Perfect! Clearly this is fate working on us! Yes, it all adds up! Oh, you say you are new? Maybe you have some of the same classes as me! This would make everything even better! Then you could be with me more and the teachers wont make a fuss about having a familiar in the classroom!"

It seemed that Ollie had not percieved Cal's words, at least not the important parts Cal wanted to convey, at all.

Something that Ollie mentioned stuck with Cal.

"Wait did you say Bird Champion? Shit, I'm a member of a group from my planet known as the Reapers. It's a group of warriors that's only comprised of Avians, winged angel-like people like myself." He spoke as he checked the magic formula written on the notebook and the one on the floor.

"I don't understand though, your work seems to be powered by wind and air magic. While Avians on my world have innate wind power, I myself have almost never used such magic. I primarily use shadow and darkness based magic so it shouldn't have brought me here." He said trying to figure out what went wrong, not considering that it was possible that nothing did.

He looked at how excited this kid was getting about having him around. He gave him a genuine smile.

"Look, Ollie, I don't know about being a familiar, but it kinda sounds like a pet type of situation, so I'll make this as clear as I can. I'm not going to be a pet in any way, I have my own classes to take here so I can't be following you around all day, I will however be your friend and if you need someone to be your champion as you called it, it is my sworn duty to help those in need if called upon to do so." He put out his hand to shake.

"Sound fair?"

"Nope nope! Thats not just it you see!" he said as Cal spoke about his people, about the Reapers and the Avians, and about how they are just winged angel-like people. As he said that, he quickly went around Cal and pointed at his wings, and even tried to pat and touch parts of his back so Cal would understand where he was referring to as he spoke. "You see, flight is not so easy, and neither are wings. To fly, birds have a very specific set up of bones that allow their wings to connect to them. Although maybe, there is a small chance it works differently on an alien world, I do believe it would be the same. Therefore, to say you are just winged angel-like is almost certainly completely incorrect. After all, those wings are a normal part of you. They are connected to your skeletal structure, and you have a different muscle and bone formation then that of humans".

As he said that, a bird flew over and Ollie raised his hand to let it sit on in. Birds normally would not behave that way around people, and due to their sensitivity even Cal's people probably could not do it normally. Although Ollie might seem a bit insane and crazy, he was able to manipulate his body and mana which let birds feel comfortable enough to land on him.

"You see, in addition, birds tend to be crazy sensitive because they have to be aware of their wingspan and such. Oh, I mean sensitive in a sensory way, not an emotional way. Your species can fly, so I am sure you experienced that feeling of being able to tell when you would and would not be able to fit through a space, and a natural sense to avoid having your wings collide into stuff? That is actually alos relevant. In order to fly properly, birds also need a lighter bone structure. Otherwise it would be impossible for their wings to carry them even for short distances, except maybe a few. Since you made no mention of being unable to fly, this clearly means you are capable of, and also I kind of just instinctively understand this stuff".

As Ollie explained all that, he gave off a delightful smile as he gave the bird a bit of birdfeed, before letting it fly off.

"As for the mana aspect of it, creatures with wings tend to have very high affinity with the Wind Attribute, though in some places it might be known as the Storm Attribute, of magic. That is why even if someone or something with wings might lack the ability to actually use it, some affinity is still there. This is considered to be likely to involve influence from the Bird God Avos, God of Wings, Wind, and Birds....ah, well, of course this is only a theory since the Gods themselves dont frequently come down and interfere with the mortal realms, especially in today's time".

Ollie seemed like he had remembered something in the middle and sort of stammered when he talked about Avos, but it wasn't too significant when one thought about it....or maybe, if one thought about it, he said something which couldn't be confirmed which therefore meant it should be information almost impossible to find. Either way though, he kept talking.

"Friends are good! I like having friends! I mean, according to the ancient texts I found, its normally very hard to find a Bird Champion so I went through all this so I could meet one, become friends with them, and have fun adventurers together, but since you apparently already live at the Academy, this is great! Oh, this is fantastic! By the way, have you gotten a dorm room then yet? Is the roommate anyone bothersome? Me, I live here. Its not usually allowed, but I take care of all the birds and the entire Roost itself singlehandedly so they let it slide. If you want to stay here, there are plenty of rooms that are not really being used right now! I am sure we can convince them! Ah, we might have the same classes anyways. I might seem young, but I am taking a lot of advanced classes".

He got so excited in waiting on the answer, he actually stood on the tips of his toes in anticipation.

This was a lot to take in all at once. The things he was saying made a lot of sense, maybe he was closer to a bird than an angel. Even the name of his race, Avians, seemed to be derived from the god Avos that he spoke of. Maybe he was a bird champion, and if he was being summoned like this, maybe it was fate.


He looked around the area. It seemed like a nice place, away from everyone and a good amount of personal space. Plus the fact that it was harder to access without the ability of flight made it feel safer.

"Well as long as it's okay if Eddy stays here with me, he doesn't eat birds so you don't have to worry about that. Come on out Eddy." He said and Eddy crawled out onto his shoulder.

"He's a rare Gialphian snow ferret. They look cute and cuddly when they're calm, but they can grow to the size of a horse and turn fierce when they feel threatened or they're protecting someone they love. But most the time he's just a fuzzy little sweetheart."

Eddy squeaked a few sounds.

"Awe am I embarrassing you?" He smiled at the ferret. He turned back to Ollie. "So, sure living up here seems like a great idea, but I'd prefer you didn't introduce me as a familiar, it gives off a pet vibe, just tell people I'm your friend."

"Sure sure! Friend it is! Besides, friends are better then servants or familiars or such! Friends are willing to go beyond the normal limits to help the people they know, and often the power of friendship! Besides, there is the magical theory of Soul Resonance that comes with friend....well, I can explain that later! Oh oh! I should show you around a bit! And also, Eddy should be fine. He looks cute! And he should be safe, I don't think any of the birds here would eat a Ferret".

After that, Ollie who had been on his tippy toes grabbed Cal's hand and began to show him around. It appeared that there were several other rooms setup, aside from his very casual and cozy looking bedroom and magic room. First off, he showed Cal to the main kitchen he had set up. It was actually formerly the club room of someone else, but he had it moved back up. Along the way, he pulled Cal through the core room of the tower, which had a staircase that while did not quite spiral in a round fashion, did border around the square walls and allowed someone to get up and down from the very top roof to the lowest part of the Roost. In addition, it appeared there was a dumbwaiter system in place that would help with moving cargo.

He also showed Cal to the shower and bath that was set up. Perhaps as one might expect, the bath was a giant bird bath, but the shower was also simple. It was in the center of one of the platforms that made up the core room as well, and one would pull a rope to allow the water to start falling onto them through a filter to make it a shower, although a somewhat thick one. It was more like...bathing in a waterfall.

"Ah yes, you don't really have to worry about privacy here, since other then the birds we are the only ones here. And you dont need to mind them, while they are quite the gossips only I can understand what they say so its fine".

Incidentally, Cal might have noticed this but Ollie seemed to have perfect sight, even though one of his eyes were covered by heavy bandages. Furthermore, it appeared he had no intention to put on shoes of any kind. But what might be more remarkable was his mind. Ollie had discussed advanced knowledge and theories off the top of his head like it was nothing, designed a lot of the stuff Cal saw from scratch, and could manage all of this solo. One had to wonder just how he managed all that knowledge so cleanly.

But also, Ollie mentioned being able to communicate with Birds even though he used no magic to do so, which might just be the most incredible thing he said.

Cal was quite impressed by all of the stuff that Ollie had managed to set up all on his own in the tower here.

"Wow, you did all this yourself, that's amazing." He said in awe.

He could tell that there was something that most people would consider crazy about Ollie. He was clearly hyper and a fast talker for sure, but Cal could tell there was nothing crazy about him. If anything he had reached the point of hyper-sanity that causes a skewed view on reality that comes across as insanity. He also seemed a bit manic.

"Oh, you can understand birds? That's awesome. I never tried to understand bird before, but I seem to be able to understand Eddy here, so I might be able to pick it up if I stay here long enough." Cal grinned.

"Haha! This is only the basic stuff! Come on, I have not even showed you the real remarkable thing about where we are right now!"

Ollie shouted that as he grabbed Cal's hands and pulled him along again, dragging him upwards and upwards until they finally reached the top of the tower. Additionally, this was something of note, but there didn't seem to be a single birdcage there. In other words, all of the birds here never flew away it seemed, and as they had complete trust in Ollie, Ollie had complete trust in them. Clearly, he was not called the Bird Mage as a slander, but because it honestly fit him.

And then, when they finally reached the top, at the very top of this tower, they could see the entire campus. The Academy was massive, over a mile in radius and was full of buildings and people. Any normal view, and it would be impossible to see the whole thing. But with this view, provided they had exceptional eyesight, they could see it all...maybe not too well, but they could.

"And yeah, I can understand them. Its a rare gift that those of us that have h...that those of us that have studied specifics like birds a lot can potentially learn, though I have been told its probably more of an inborn gift".

After that, he sat down on a ledge and began kicking his feet back and forth energetically from off the side.

"You know, I have been here since Pre-School, and this really is a great place to learn and have fun in. In fact, I was able to develop several Magic Apps while I have been here. Perhaps you heard of some?"

"Hmm that's cool, maybe you can teach me some bird talk since I'm gonna be living with so many." He chuckled. He followed him all the way to the top of the tower and admired the view. It was breath-taking and his vision was exceptional so he could see as much as Ollie, but he wondered what it was like to see things the way Ollie did.

"Magic Apps? Oh cool did you design the one that can summon an elemental wraith with the touch of a button? You know I had an idea where you could add a bit that works with your phone's fingerprint scanner to give a manna reading so you know just how much manna you have." He suggested. He was starting to feel a genuine connection with this kid, like maybe he was meant to be summoned and protect and befriend Ollie.

"I think I'm gonna like it here." He smiled looking out over the school. He sat down next to him and put an arm around his shoulder.

"So, have you ever actually flown before? I could give you a ride if you want."

"Maybe. It all depends on if you have a good knack for it, though it should help that you are part bird. Oh, that reminds me...will need to get a bed brought up for you. Well, you can use mine till then. It shouldn't take too long, but its not like I can just get something here immediately....ah, do you want a bigger bed or a smaller bed?"

He asked that as he then admired the view in silence for a good bit, soaking in the entire view and letting it sink into their eyes. It was a remarkable and spectacular view. Something that people might even pay for. And it was something that Ollie could enjoy daily.

After awhile, as they sat down together and had that connection, he finally responded to the rest.

"Yeah, I have developed several including Magi-Burst, Mana-Lock, and Aura-Sense. The first one is a game, the second one is a security app that protects your phone from magical intrusion, and the third gives you a vague idea of the emotions people are feeling around you. Actually, that idea you had, Mana-Lock is based on programming like that. I am doing the finishing touches now, and should be on sale soon".

And then, he looked at him with an energetic and happy smile.

"I would love to! I have flown before, but it differs depends on the method and who you ride in! So I would love it if you gave me a ride!"

With that, Cal stood up and picked up Ollie, pretty easy since he was only ten, and threw him onto his back like a back pack.

"Just wrap your arms around my neck." He said. He spread his wings out to their full glory, bent his knees and was about to launch himself into the air.

"Wait a minute, where do you want to go, or should I just surprise you?" He asked smiling. He had taken a flight around the area a few days ago when he had gotten here and he saw a few sights that were breath-taking. Particularly the view above the ocean at the edge of the city was amazing, then there was a forest a little farther out that he wanted to explore and all kinds of other locations he saw from afar that looked interesting

"Ooooh! Weeeeeee!" Ollie said as he was picked up and swung around onto his back, much like a back pack. Ollie proceeded to wrap his arms around Cal's neck as asked, and even proceeded to wrap his legs around his waist for good measure. "There are a lot of places around Astrius Academy true, but there are also spectacular sights around Hayslem City as well as Origin itself. Exactly, how far can you go? There is a place in The Corelands called the Humming Spires, where beautiful music is produced from the wind and several species of Lullibirds, which are birds that specialize in singing, are found there.

As he explained all that, he remembered the map of Origin he had memorized and consider other places as well. There were certainly many sights at Millenium Plaza alone that were worth looking at.

"Hmmm, you seem pretty light weight. Most of my flying is based on gliding and not a lot of wing flapping, so I should be able to make it to the Humming spires." Cal said. He looked to the direction he was supposed to go and then jumped off the ledge of the tower. He dive bombed straight down until he was just a foot or two above the ground before opening up his wings. He began to glide and then flapped his wings to get to a good height. He kinda hoped he had given Ollie a good scare, an by the way he clung tighter as they were falling, it was clear he had just a little bit.

The view from above the city was amazing as they glided gracefully through the air. Cal had caught a good tailwind and was probably going to get there much sooner than he expected.
