a character in “The Paradox”, as played by Asher MstrImmortalis


Asher Lucian Evans


Name: Asher Evans
Gender: Male "I've lived for at least a thousand years... not once had I even THOUGHT like a woman..."
Physical Age: 18
Actual Age 2000+ "A thousand by your calendar, two from my perspective."
Time: Sometime in the Middle Ages to 2018 A.D.
Written Description: Asher is 5"8'. He has white skin with a light tan, and he has a slight muscle build as well. Asher has silver white hair and two icy blue eyes that can penetrate whatever mask you wear. He wears a dark green cloak that reaches from the bottom of the face to his knees and blue jeans. His shirt inside the cloak is orange with an insignia on the heart area and the back. The insignia is pure black, and its shaped like a fire entrapped in ice. It's also shown on the back of his robe, if he's wearing it (which he is most of the time).
Asher's eyes move about in every single second, taking in the immediate surroundings. They calculate every movement, every reaction, and every gesture that people make. He gives off an air of authority, wisdom, and the attitude that would say "Stay the fuck away from me if you value your life."
In some cases, Asher's hair would turn jet-black, and his eyes would turn crimson red. At that moment, his dark side has taken over.
In rarer cases, Asher is seen to have gray hair and two differently colored eyes- both colored from each other the two colors mentioned above.
Role: Past
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual "You know how Christianity looks down upon homosexuality? I don't, but that doesn't mean I myself am gay."
Nationality: European (as accurate as I can) "I've lived for so long, traveled over so many lands... It's safe to say I forgot."
Race: Immortalis (as explained in other)
Job: n/a "I'm living through several generations, kid. I have to 'die' and be 'born again' to get another job. Then there was the Great Depression and then... UGH."
Height: 6"1'
Weight: 130 lbs.
Elemental Manipulation: As an Immortalis, you are allowed to gain control over certain elements, like in Avatar: The Last Airbender. You also gain a title, such as "The Master of Temperature." Using this power takes away energy, much like in a regular RPG's Mage class. Not only this, but when used, the elements affected are only the ones near the user. This means that Asher can't go Roy Mustang on enemies (look him up if you don't get what I mean *finger snap*).
(for roleplaying purposes, if you look at other "Asher Evans Immortalis"s, you'd see he has more powers. I'm toning it down in order to make him not so OP.)
Ice Manipulation: Asher's most mastered element. Used in conjunction with his attacks, Asher displays his mastery by freezing objects and creating ice. Asher is also able to lower the temperature. Though, he can't use it in high temperatures and, to prevent ice melting, Asher must focus on substituting the melting ice with more.
Fire Manipulation: Asher's second most mastered element. Used in conjunction with his attacks, Asher raises the temperature slightly and creates fireballs. Though, that's pretty much what he can do with this power.
Shadow Manipulation: Asher's third element, though most limited. Asher can control the shadows and use them as objects, creating a kind of weapon out of them (Masamune for Soul Eater fanatics). The thing is, however, is that Asher can't use this power often. This drawback will, again, be explained later in the character sheet.
Passive Abilities:
Strategy: Asher is able to think on his feet, being flexible and adaptable in battle. Asher usually holds back at first to see his opponent's strategies, then use counter measures and strike back, hard.
Immortality: This isn't "total immortality" that you want from Shinron. No, this only affects Asher's lifespan and vulnerability against death-sentencing situations. Asher is able to live, if let alone, an infinite amount of time. However, if something such as a demon or another Immortalis were to cross him and try to kill him, he WILL be killed. This is explained later, AGAIN.
Dark Side Not really an ability, more like a curse. Asher, gaining control over the shadows, has now developed a dark side named Lucian. Using Shadow Manipulation too much results in the Dark Side slowly corrupting Asher and taking over. Once this happens, Asher must have to fight against the dark side and win his body back.
Frigid Inferno: A representation of Asher's discipline. The handle is normal, save for the flame incased in ice insignia on the hilt. However, the uchigatana's blade is unique, and was made using Asher's powers himself. The blade is made purely of ice that never melts. Inside the blade was a line of molten lava, unable to escape the confines of the ice (note that the lava is only for SHOW. It can't be used as heat purposes nor can it melt objects like actual lava).
Infernal Blizzard: The reverse of Asher's blade, ONLY appearing when Asher's dark side takes over. The lava has now broken through the ice, only leaving a few spots (for a lack of a better word) of ice on the lava blade. It can't burn through opponent's defenses because it's only for show.
Elemental Tags: Asher uses a set of exploding tags, the effect only known before the explosion by the color of the tag. Red tags are normal explosive tags, while blue tags create ice. Black tags, however, are the equivalent of flash bangs, making the victims unable to see temporarily. Asher can will them to explode, but even then Asher needs to know if it's safe to do so. Note that Asher does NOT have an unlimited number, but 10 of each type.


Personality: "Alright, alright, alright. But I'm not saying it again, got it?"
At first glance, you'd see Asher as a cruel man. When addressed to, Asher would end the conversation as quick as possible in a cold tone. He also prefers to be isolated, leaning against the wall in parties and not going into the crowd to dance. Asher doesn't care about petty things like breaking a nail or something; he cares about breaking an arm.
If you can manage to hold a conversation, Asher can hold one for you. You can ask him some things, but he won't reveal too much about himself. Rather, he'd stay silent and let the silence speak his unwanting to talk about himself. However, you can already tell, if you converse with him long enough and get into YOUR personal life, that he does care for other people, and that he is extremely intelligent.
During battle, the bloody rose blooms, and Asher can show you his actual side. Decisive, cunning, showing great wisdom. He's calculating as well, and can think on his feet quickly. His caring for other people leads him to wish to protect civilians, hinting that he wants to protect others. Asher doesn't want any casualties in the civilian side nor within his allies.
As an enemy, Asher can lie as much as he wants. He's mastered the art of subterfuge and lies, especially in a new level. Ever tried living multiple generations' lives using different identities? Asher can hide himself easily within history. Lying to one person isn't a problem to him. He's good at keeping a poker face as well.
However, if you're a girl... you'd be able to get the upper hand on him in every aspect of life. Asher can't fight girls, and he usually stutters and messes up near attractive girls. He's also easily seduced in most cases, making him an easy target to flirt and get your way with him.
The closer you are to Asher, the more of his true side you get to see. Despite his cold and calm demeanor, Asher is still a human. It's the fact that Asher still makes jokes and still feels fear that makes him human. You wouldn't be able to see it if you're a stranger, but when you're his friend, you get his human side.
If you are in a relationship with Asher, you have access to his inner and personal thoughts. He's basically sad and prone to reminiscing, especially with what used to be the good times. He's also afraid... afraid of losing everyone he cares about, which explains his isolationism.
+Roman Catholicism (original religion)
+Seeing the people gaining power over their lives
+The wise and elderly
+Anime and Manga "What? A thousand year guy has to find SOMETHING to do..."
+Martial Arts
+The new technological and medical advances "My... Humanity has come such a long way...."

-Selfish people who gain at the expense of others.
-At times, God.
-Anyone who picks on his past.
-His life that lived too long.

~Losing those he cares about.
~Not being able to do a thing if a horrible ruler rises.
~Using his control over shadow too much, to the extent of letting Lucian run rampant.

"My strong points? I'm not one to reveal them so easily... Maybe in a fight, yes."
+Asher is an expert at swordsmanship. His work with the sword is as deadly as his magic.
+Speaking of magic, Asher mastered fire and ice spells.
+Asher can remain calm in the worst situations.
+Asher has a photographic memory as well as a pair of good eyes that can see the weak points of something easily.
+Asher is able to strategize mid-battle and think on his feet.
+They don't call him the Voice of Treason for no reason. At one point he voiced out against tyrants and called for revolution. He still retains his ability through persuading others.

"Please... That would be dumb to tell you them."
-Asher is love-shy (meaning that while he is searching for love, he's practically afraid to advance in a relationship).
-Asher isn't very sociable. He has little to no skills in the social area.
-Around women (particularly the attractive ones) Asher usually messes up in his movements and speaking. His concentration is easily broken, and Asher is also easily seduced.
-In battle, if there are civilians, Asher tries to get the battle away from them. If not, then protect the civilians even if it means taking the its.
-Elements manipulated can only be the ones near the user.


Asher was born in a hidden time period of the Middle Ages, one that was ruled by the Immortali. Everywhere in Europe was under the control of the tyrant, Julian Lucifer, the Devil's Master Immortalis. No one was safe, not even Asher. Asher lived in a village hidden deep in a forest. The village was made self-sufficient in order to reduce the need to go outside or to bring in outsiders. For the most part, it was safe for the residents of the small world that they lived in... until Julian cast an eye on them. Everything went to hell after that, as Asher's village was burned to the ground, and not a single resident was spared. This included Asher, who was killed by the leader of the small party of Devil's Immortali himself.

Asher had been revived as an Immortalis after that, along with two other people, both of which are his friends. All three were recruited by a man named Damion Howard, who was the leader of an army of rebels. Under his supervision, the trio trained and became stronger rather quickly. This brought morale to the troops, and the whole army was practically ready to charge into the castle. Then, tragedy struck.

Damion Howard had been killed by a Devil's Master Immortalis, leaving the army in chaos and in low morale. How can they face the tyrant now? They don't even have a leader. There was no hope for them, until Asher, who had been trained by Howard in case something like this happened, stepped up and named himself the new leader of the army, calling himself the "Voice of Treason" against Julian. The army's morale slowly climbed up, and eventually they all had gotten prepared once again. The rebels finally charged into the castle, bringing every single ounce of strength with them. Sadly, the tyrant saw this coming and rigged the castle to explode. Only half the army remained alive after the battle. Morale was low again, many had died, many injured, many mourned. On the way back to the base of operations, the tyrant himself had showed, and killed 1/3 of the remaining army. Enough was enough, and the trio of Asher, Aero, and Eliza had challenged Julian. They won after a hard battle, and the Devil's army had dispersed.

Asher was crowned king, which he actually didn't want. His first order of business was to track down the Devil's Immortali and kill them. The first order was never completed, as the targets had disguised themselves as God's Immortali and sparked a revolt on the humans' side. Asher tried to settle it peacefully, sending in his two friends (Eliza was now his lover, and they had became a romantic couple) to become diplomats. They never came back, as the Devil's Immortali gave the humans a way to kill the God's Immortali's troops. Asher had stepped down from the throne without a word. It wasn't worth it anymore, not to him. He can't injure the humans, but they can injure him. Asher might as well give the power over to them.

And thus, the God's Immortali's reign had ended so soon after it had started. God had hidden away the age of the Immortali, and pulled the earliest "Men in Black" by erasing all of the humans' memories of the race. Only Asher remained, but as a hidden vagrant. The only thing worth living for him, was the progression of human society. Asher lived through history, fulfilling different roles. A troop from World War I, a slave working in the mines, or a gentleman from Great Britain, Asher lived as many people, but still kept that one identity to himself: Asher Evans.

Asher had roamed the earth far too long. Everything's the same now. To him, what has been keeping him alive- the curiosity of following the advancements of the human race- had fallen. It seemed now that everyone was doomed to violence and sadness in the towns. It was time to move on and try to find some way to live again. However, before that could actually happen, one more incident had occurred.

Asher watched as New York began to shake and crumble, an unnatural earthquake shook through the popular city. A beam hit him, knocking him out. When he woke up, nothing was the same anymore... at least in Japan. He hasn't been in that country since the Cold War.

The Immortalis

The Immortali are a race that was erased in history. It was made by God and the devil, in desperation to protect or destroy the human race during the Middle Ages. The whole race is split into 2 sides, God's side and the Devil's side. Both sides are made from those that had died, and swore that they would defend the humans or kill them. They all get the ability to control and manipulate certain aspects of an element. Sometimes it's a passive ability, such as control of Air allows you to run faster. usually it's open control, like using water and light for healing or creating icicles out of nowhere.

Each side is split further into 3 ranks: the normal, the Elder, and the Master. These ranks each have their own max point of how much you can manipulate. The Master can control the most aspects of each element. However, light does not count toward this restriction for God's Immortali, and darkness is the same for Devil's Immortali.

The entire Immortali race can control the age of their own bodies, and are not affected by the sands of time. Their bodies can withstand many death blows before dying, but anything that is supernatural would mean that the Immortali are vulnerable. This includes angels, demons, spirits, and themselves. Immortali are the most vulnerable to each other.

In some cases, Immortali can control elements that relate to their side or their opposite side. (i.e. Asher has control over darkness, or the shadows) Because of controlling the other side's element, they develop a split persona that embodies values against the host's. In most cases, this alternate side would try to take over the host, especially after using the required element too much. The alternate persona looks like its host, but has some minor changes in appearance (silver hair turning black, for instance). At this moment, the host must fight for his/her body back, but it may happen again.

There are also rare times in which this "dark side" would willingly lend power to its host. The host gains a mix of both his/her appearance and the dark side, as well as a somewhat unrestricted use of the element. However, this is countered by extreme exhaustion once the moment has gone by, and the user is left vulnerable.

Damion Howard: "My mentor, and the one whom I inherited the title 'Voice of Treason' from..."
After Asher died, he had resurrected into an Immortalis. The thing is, however, is that he had nowhere to go. Damion is also an Immortalis, and also the leader of a rebel army. He recruited Asher, housed him, fed him, and practically taught Asher everything he knows today about battle. You can say Damion was Asher's father figure.
Eliza Lassar: "... I don't want to talk about her..."
Eliza was Asher's childhood love, and that love carried on throughout his entire life in the rebel army. She stood by his side, comforting him, and she loved him back after turning into an Immortalis herself. She was lost again in a diplomatic mission, which caused Asher so much grief that he stepped down from the throne he once took.
Aero Lance: "You can't complain about your family being airheads, but your friends.... Yeah."
Aero was Asher's best friend in Asher's early life as an Immortalis and human. He was missing in action during a mission under Asher's rule. However, Asher did see a reincarnation of Aero many times, implying that he died.

Ian Emanuel Erian

Ian grunted as he woke up. His clothes were ripped in various places by bullets flying at him, and in some of those cuts, blood could be seen. He didn't remember what happened. All Ian remembered was that he was fighting in a battle in the Arctic, and Ian took his post as the sniper in his platoon. Another person was there with him, in case the enemy somehow discovered the sniper's position. After all, Ian was only useful in ranged fights. Up close, he's practically dead.

Mid-battle, the enemy managed to push back Ian's platoon, as well as discovering their position. Thinking fast, Ian's partner was about to throw a flashbang. About to. The land began to shake, and the snow on a nearby mountain began to fall down to the battle. The force of the spontaneous natural disaster caused the soldier to drop the flashbang, allowing it to detonate right under Ian as he was taking aim for the nearest enemy. The result was the deafening of the sniper's ears and the temporary blindness, which, in reality, allowed the incoming avalanche and the occurring earthquake to wreak havoc without Ian's notice.

"Ugh... my head..." Ian muttered as he rubbed the aching noggin of his. Looking around, he realized that he wasn't in the battlefield anymore. "Well... crap." Did I get captured by the enemy or something...? Ugh... Ian thought as he stood up. It was a dark room, with a bit of light coming from the space the closed door to the room didn't cover. Feeling for anything in the floor, Ian smirked as he almost immediately found his weapons. No way... Not even anyone would be dumb enough to leave the prisoner's weapons with him.

Looking around some more inside the room, Ian saw that it was practically ravaged. Geez...Did an earthquake occur here...? Every single thing inside the room had either fallen on the floor, toppled over, or laid as multiple pieces of itself on the said floor. Suddenly, Ian heard voices from outside the door. "Huh...? Who's there...?" He muttered as he approached the doorway. The sniper put his ear against the door, trying to listen in and see if he can get a hint at what's going on. To him, it was just some random nonsense, but through it all, Ian could hear one distinct voice. "As for you... head out and show yourself."

Ian nearly froze at the command, but the voice wasn't really directed towards him. Realizing that, Ian moved his hand away from the handle- that is until his mind registered something about that voice. Wait... could it be...? Ian thought. He moved his hand back towards the handle. No... I thought she was half a world away... There was a bit of joy to the thought as Ian twisted the doorknob. Opening it a bit, he could see a group of people. None of which, Ian could recognize by sight. Of course, now that he revealed his presence to the group (if they happened to be facing Ian's direction), it just became very awkward for him. Ian bit his tongue, secretly, as he can't find the words to say first.

One of those people walked past the whole group, asking for a sort of jailer. What is he- blind? Ian thought. Another of the group had her back towards Ian as she said "I'm afraid that we are no jailers... merely prisoners like yourself. Sorry to interrupt you sir, but I am Ariana and I believe you may just be in the same situation as myself and these others with me... May I ask your name?"

"..." Ian kept silent still, not knowing what to do or say. Sighing, Ian got out of the room. "Uh... excuse me... But, can any of you tell me what's going on?" Ian said, trying to keep a smile.

Asher Lucian Evans

Great... Fan-freaking-tastic. The man in the dark green cloak thought. His head was pounding as hard as a heart of an athlete in the Olympics, and he isn't in New York City. Other than that, the man felt like crud after discovering that he just ate expired food products in a restaurant in- wait. I'm not in New York City.

Looking around, Asher Lucian Evans could see, via the designs of the items inside the dark room he was in, that he wasn't in New York City. In fact, he wasn't in America. "Why... the hell am I in Japan...?" Asher muttered. Trying to remember what had happened, Asher realized that an earthquake ripped through New York City, which was unheard of because no one even recorded an earthquake in that large area. Yet in happened... How?

As Asher inspected the room again, he could tell that wherever in Japan he was, the place met the same fate as New York City. Must've been a powerful earthquake as well to topple all that... Asher thought. Still looking around, Asher finally found a door, but he heard voices. The sounds were too far to be heard clearly, so Asher couldn't make out what anyone was saying. Without having the door opened more than it originally had, Asher peeked through the little space that the door left alone. He can see 9 other people in the house. They were all in front of him, but Asher's position was from a nearby hallway that led to the single room he was located in. Sighing, Asher stood up straight. Alright... So I got an earthquake, transportation into Japan and into a run-down house with at least 9 other people, and nowhere to go... What to do? Asher thought. To keep his distance, or to be apart of the group? That is the ques- "Yeah. I'll stay away for now and see how this will turn out." Asher muttered as he stayed in the room.

Riye Wakahisa

ImageRiye was...overwhelmed? Perhaps was the term. Every time she turned around their seemed to be someone new making introductions and quite honestly she was having a hard time keeping up. Not just because of the introductions but also because there seemed to be multiple different conversations taking place. Even further, she had started to question her own judgement and sight. Why? Because she could have sworn she was staring at the aura of a living person, dim though it may be, and yet there was no one there. Multiple times she closed her eyes and opened them again, somewhat dramatically, but alas the aura was still there. No, it was moving.

Either this place really has ghosts, or I've completely lost my mind. Neither would really surprise me. She interrupted her own thoughts when the aura suddenly took off in the direction of a room near the girl called Naomi. Riye blinked and stared tiredly after the faded aura. Once it was in the room it suddenly brightened and strengthened. I'm not that I? No sooner did she think it did her sanity reaffirm itself. A blonde boy, rather cute, almost as attractive as her brother, despite being shirtless, scare the wits out of the girl known as Naomi. Riye yawned and ran her fingers through her hair. There was one more person in this mass of strangely colored people. Still though, what did all the different colors mean. She got the feeling no one here was normal. Their auras had a similar air as Kei and herself, and they most certainly were far from normal. However, there was more to it than that she just wasn't sure what it was.

She looked up at her brother. His usually pale hair was darkening in one spot, which told her his head was still bleeding. They really needed to get medical attention for him. Needless to say it was annoying her that despite having already mentioned once or twice finding an exit no one had made any attempt to actually go anywhere. Even if the exit was a window she wasn't so proud that she wouldn't climb out of one.

Riye crossed her arms and turned around, opting to look back down the hallway she had come down. That was when she saw perhaps one of the most powerful auras in the building, how anyone could miss it was beyond her because it was overwhelmingly not human. No one here had an aura like that. It seemed ancient and that was what made so different and so strong. The red-head wasn't sure if she was scared of it, or curious. It's kind Curious it is.

Stealing a glance at her brother who seemed somewhat distracted by the conversations and probably by his throbbing head she slid by him and headed lazily down the hallways towards the singular aura. It was located in a room down the hallway behind the group with its door barely ajar. She swayed a little as she walked, almost as if she was falling asleep but a small smack to her face kept her awake as she wandered. Finally she was within four feet of the door and she went to take the final few steps of her journey to appease her curiosity. Unfortunately, the floor had other plans and her foot went straight through the floorboard and she went down with it face planting right in front of the door. "Damn it." It was muffled admittedly, but it was obviously a declaration of pain and annoyance.

Lifting her face off the ground she then proceeded to reach out with her right hand and knock on the door causing it to open just a little more. Afterwards she waved a bit, "Knock Knock."

Kei Wakahisa

ImageKei was more than slightly annoyed with this group. While he couldn't very well blame them for his situation, since they were in the same one as him, he could blame them for their complete and utter inefficiency in locating an exit. It seemed to be the one topic of conversation that everyone had a hard time actually talking about. Introductions could be made, repeatedly, after they were out of this structurally unsound building. The fact that his head hurt him terribly wasn't really helping his mood. Still though he tried to smile.

As more people continued to appear and cut the conversation of exiting the building short, Kei finally felt the last bit of patience he had disappear. Smiling he coughed just loud enough to get everyone's attention, "While this may strike all of you all as being somewhat rude, I can't help but feel the need to point out the fact that this building is by no means safe and it may be in all of our best interests to leave as soon as possible. Introductions and reunions can be had after we are no longer in harms way...can we agree on this?" Unconsciously he rubbed his throbbing head before motioning to Joshua and continuing, "You mentioned a window. While a door may be preferable I think it best that we wander this building as little as possible in order to avoid incident, in order to do this we should take path we are familiar with rather than search for a different one. Does anyone have any qualms with that?"

He wasn't really one that was fond of taking command, he felt it was somewhat rude and that was the last thing he wanted people to perceive him as. Especially after all the trouble he put into being polite. However, in a situation like this where it is imperative that a large group of people move along someone had to take control and no one else was rising to the occasion. While he wasn't demanding anyone listen to him or obey him, yet, he could at least try to point the group in the right direction. Especially if it meant that his sister would be safe.

Glancing down at his hand he noticed the red for the first time. Ah, I'm bleeding. So I received more than a minor bump on the head during that earthquake...crap. He sighed, for a moment he felt dizzy and tired. He would have to ask Riye for an energy boost when they were finally out of here. He closed his for a moment and lightly rubbed his temples. Getting out of here was only the first of their problems. Figuring out how they got in in the first place was another on a long list of riddles that needed solving and he would solve them eventually. First he needed an aspirin for the migraine that was coming on. Then he would focus on solving the puzzle.

He turned to his sister. Or rather he thought he turned to his sister but strangely the red-head was no longer where he had last seen her. He turned full circle, but alas his sister was gone. He pointed at the area where she was last seen standing and cocked his head in question. He then voiced his obvious curiosity just under his breath, "Where did she go?"

As the others he notices in that abandoned house lay asleep, trapped in the dreary states of their own minds... he rises from his position, a sick smile on his twisted lips as his sagging body drags itself upwards... he eappears so broken, arms and legs bent in random directions and blood red eyes near hanging out of their sockets... had this been the position he was left in after the earthquake? Perhaps, it didn't matter, he found it hilarious, so he smiled at his own pain and had to stop his own chaotic laughter from waking the others. He didn't want to be found out by them, he knew who they were of course... well not specifically, he knew they were other individuals drawn into the paradox as he was... this meant they had power and dealing with them all as he was then would serve no purpose but the destruction of him and with him the chaos he would bring to all of them... in time.

Yes time... It was ironic that he had thought it that way, especially considering the circumstances. No matter, soon such pointless things as time would be gone. The paradox would most certainly take care of that... yes... soon he would fill the empty void of a broken continuum... with nothing but the chaos it deserved. These were the twisted thoughts that ran through Bernard Carrion Talon's mind as his bones slowly cracked and snapped back into place and he smiled the smile of a man who's sanity was nothing more than a dream.

As he passed a small sofa he spotted two more... a boy with a dark energy... a piece of chaos, of demons, all of his own and a young girl with a lab coat who lay across his lap. As if asserting his dominance over the lesser demon and out of pure bloodlust and insanity, Bernard grabbed the girl by the neck and lifted her high above his head. Such a deep sleep was she in that the choking grip was perceived by her as nothing more than a dark and demented turn in her nightmare. He needed to kill after all... to make his chaos stronger and to simply sate his bloodlusting lunacy. It was such a... good feeling. Watching her squirm... scream in her mind though her voice wasn't heard... it was amazing... so renewing, so satisfying was it for him that every time she whimpered for breath he would squeeze her harder and harder. Soon however she began to cough lightly in her sleep... and somehow this stirred the young demonic man from his slumber as Bernard noticed him shift. He was insane yes... but he was no fool. Killing this girl now, as much as he wanted to, was not the right course of action for him at that moment. So with a heavy heart and unsatisfied lust for death, Bernard dumped the sleeping girl behind a nearby dresser and proceeded to leave through the window, hastily tossing the latch aside and climbing his still broken body through the small space.

Finally, falling with a thump onto the other side and taking a deep breath of the fresh air. Bernard turns his head to see a nearby city. Surely there he would find a suitable kill. So he limps in its direction and as he does so, he turns his head back to the abandoned ruin of a house and smiles. In a different story, one might expect this man to say a line... some form of threat or promise of return but no. Bernard simply smiled a child-like grin... for he knows they will meet again. After all... in every life, the end result is naught but chaotic.

~Joshua Edard Rowan~ &~Ariana Ahikito Kaizuke~

Noticing the obvious distress at the groups lack of definite escape route Joshua, deciding not to get the groups hopes up with an announcement of his efforts, Joshua slowly slips away while the others appear distracted and begins to make his way towards the window he noticed behind the sofa he awoke upon to, believing the other members of the group to be unaware of his sudden departure from the conversation at hand, Joshua is unaware of the eye Ariana had been keeping on him since her previous evaluation of his eye and race... which still continued to baffle her with its mixed signals. Regardless of this however, she immediately noticed him leave the confines of the groups company and followed him to see what exactly he was up to whilst trying to leave so silently.

As she herself left the group, not bothering with the stealth approach and bowing lightly to excuse herself. She found Joshua within the adjacent room examining the window.

"Pardon me Mr.Rowan, but what exactly are you doing?" She asked, though she already knew the answer... the question was more rhetorically based however. So she didn't feel it was completely redundant. "'Tis not obvious? I was about to open this window so as to make our escape viable." Ariana sighed at his tone... Joshua obviously wasn't very good at grasping rhetorical question. "Well yes of course it's obvious I just... oh look it doesn't really matter at this point... will it open." Tilting his head slightly but not questioning further, Joshua answered her question by graping its bottom and raising it quickly and thankfully, despite sticking a little, it lifted without a single hitch. The window was of a typical sort, square and fashioned from glass, when fully open it seemed just big enough for a single person to fit through it at a time. Josh was obviously pleased by this result... however the latch for the window had already been hastily removed when he went to open it... it was probably nothing but... it bothered him.

Ariana on the other hand had no such worried and jumped up in glee when she saw the window raise. "Hooray! Good job Joshua-k... *ahem* Well done Mister Rowan... allow me a moment to call the others." Grimacing fro her slip of the tongue she turned away from Joshua and called into the building after the others. "Everyone quickly, the window's open we can finally get out of here!" Job done and a smile on her face for a small victory Ariana quickly turned back to Josh, only to frown fully when she noticed he had already left... he had a smile on his face and took a deep breath of fresh air and Ariana smiled lightly to herself as his red eye glistened in the sunlight.

But then he turned left and suddenly... as if out of nowhere, Joshuas face turned to one of ice cold terror and in an instant he dropped to his knees. "M... Mister Rowan?" She called out to him through the open window. Joshua could easily hear her, but his eyes were fixated on the landscape before him... his will and belief seemingly ripped from his body over what he could see. Ariana, fearing what horrible sights Joshua was seeing and naturally assuming that the earthquake had been worse than she had thought, braced herself for the worst before hopping lightly out the window and rushing to Joshua's side, once there, she followed his gaze to see.

A bustling city. A little out of place maybe... but it was just a city, nothing more. It seemed a little less advanced then the cities Ariana was used to, but not by much that was for sure. Yet as she looked at Joshua he seemed so stunned... what was up with him to get him so spooked over something so normal.

Fro Joshua's perspective however... the World had just been flipped on his head, massive glistening buildings, miles of land... dominated by pitch black roads and towers stretching higher than even the tallest castles or cathedrals. It wasn't that he was scared persay... but he was so shocked... so surprised that his knees had just collapsed underneath him. The only words he could manage to speak were a mutter... a simple phrase of disbelief and awe.

"What sorcery... what sorcery is this... what form of illusion..." "What the Hell is going on here?"

Asher Lucian Evans

"Damn it..." A girl's soft voice was heard from behind the door. Asher looked at the doorway, sighing. Already someone found me? Asher thought. Then, a knocking was heard, accompanied by a voice that said the same sound effect.

"Who's there." Asher said, in an audible volume. The Immortalis walked to the door and opened it. The sight that first greeted him was a girl on the floor. She was laying down, though one of her legs was missing. Leaning to the side, Asher saw it was stuck in a hole. "I guess you need some help there, huh?"

Sighing again, Asher walked through the doorway and offered a hand to the girl. "C'mon. I'll pull you up." There was a slight smile on his face, but it carried no genuine emotion with it. It's purpose was only to alert the girl that he wasn't going to think that pulling her out of her dilemma was a burden to him.

Ian Emanuel Erian

Ian looked through the crowd. Because of his closer view, he can now see all of the faces clearly. None of them were familiar, none of them he remembered from his team. Damn... and I was hoping to see someone familiar..." Of course, at the sight of one face, he finally did see a face he knows.

"Wait..." Ian began to smile as he walked toward her. "Out of all the places, I didn't think I'd see you here." His face now had a wide grin as Ian's feet moved toward the girl. He stretched his arm out and practically hugged her, smiling because last time Ian thought of her, she was half a world away.

ImageMikasa kept ignoring everybody and everything else, despite there were a lot of distinctive conversations and noises. Her eyes were locked on the new group addition, someone she knew very well since a young age, someone she thought was out of her life, once again all thanks to the war.

As Ian started walking towards Mikasa, "wait..." he started smiling to which Mikasa responded with a smile right back, "out of all the places, I didn't think I'd see you here". You're not the only one who thinks that Mikasa thought. As soon as he stretched his arm hugging her Mikasa was surprised, but smiling nonetheless, knowing that he was alive and doing well was enough to bring another smile to Mikasa's face.

"Mikasa!" he said in exclamation. "I thought I'd never see you again... Ian" she said admittedly. For a moment she remembered how they had been separated after Ian had gone with a special team focusing on stealth while Mikasa was sent to the front lines.

"I was training with a friend when I passed out" she paused for a minute, "and then I woke up here..." She knew she couldn't trust anyone else for the moment and sharing some knowledge with an old friend did not seem like a bad idea. "I don't know what's going on but, I honestly don't think this is a coincidence" another pause, only this time a little longer, "everyone seems a bit off too..." she finally said, hoping that Ian could make sense into whatever this strange situation was.

Ryu Koizumi


ImageRyu understood why Naomi had so many questions as she did, but after Kei pointed once again that the building was about to collapse, and after he put his shirt on, it didn't seemed like he would have enough time to even begin explaining himself. besides he was too tired to communicate with her through his mind again.
At the end, he simply smiled again trying to reassure the girl with so many questions, "look, I understand. You want to know how I know about your... talents and all, but I think the guy with the weird eye is right. he paused a bit eyeing at Kei "We need to get out ASAP."
Naomi didn't say anything as she was still too shocked to even say anything, but somehow she felt a feeling of relief in knowing she was not the only one who was 'different'. Understanding the situation she simply gave a nod to the boy with the blonde hair, seeing closer how he was very handsome she stuttered for a bit, "I... I think you're right" she pointed out looking both at Kei and at Ryu.

"What will you have us do?" she asked at Kei seeing how he seemed to have a plan already. However before she heard his answer she eyed at Joshua who seemed to be on the move already, seeking for what seemed to be the window he had talked about before. She turned her eyes back to Kei who seemed to be a bit worried now, and she turned her eyes where his had, his hands. There was blood in it, 'what's wrong' she wondered a bit concerned for the boy.

She looked around to see if the girl with the orange hair had also noticed his injury, however she was nowhere to be found. Naomi was dumbfounded as she also noticed that Joshua and Ariana had also gone missing, the most obvious answer was that they had probably found an exit already.

"Are you all right?" she asked Kei, coming closer to him, leaving Ryu behind.

Riye Wakahisa

ImageRiye laid her chin on the floor as she awaited the response from the person behind the door. Deep down she was curious to discover what the creature was. With an aura so ancient she could come up with thousands of different appearances; her favorite one was most definitely the image of a a wrinkled old dwarf with a long grey beard and long wiry hair framing a bald patch on the top of his head. Dwarves are supposed to have unnaturally long lives, right? Admittedly, though she was extremely tired, she was getting a little excited at the thought of meeting a funny looking old dude. What she ended up receiving was most unexpected and on one hand a little disappointing but on the other not so bad.

"Who's there." The door opened revealing the first the feet of a rather young looking boy with silver hair and icy blue eyes. Riye blinked once, twice, three times as she stared at the face of neither a dwarf not and old man. While it was a little saddening that this was not a fantastical creature it was also a little intriguing that someone that seems to be the same age as herself could have such an aged aura. Plus, something about him seemed really experienced and daunting. Cocking her head Riye put some thought into what she was seeing. Between his physical appearance and his aura she wasn't entirely sure which one to trust. She watched him look around her head and speak again, "I guess you need some help there, huh?"

Riye raised an eyebrow and after a second and a withheld yawn turned her head and body around in order to see what it was he was referring to. As it would turn out her leg was still stuck in the floor, oddly enough she had forgotten about it. Whoops. Wiggling it a bit she found that yes, she did in fact need some help, "So it would seem."

Looking up at the boy she watched him extend his hand to her, as he did so Riye felt her sleeping mental faculties come to no reasonable conclusion as to why he did so. This resulted in her awkwardly ogling his hand. Fortunately, the boy wasted no time in explaining his purposes, "C'mon. I'll pull you up." Riye blinked again then looked at her right hand. That would make sense. A few seconds went by before she shook herself back to reality and returned his smile.

Giving him her hand she responded, "Thanks." As he helped lifted her out of the hole she adjusted her leg in order to make the process a little easier and reduce the chances of getting a cut. Afterwards she brushed herself off. "I wish I could say this kind of stuff doesn't usually happen to me, but I think I'll keep wishing." She shrugged slightly and turned her gaze back to his aura. One could only imagine just how badly she wanted to question him and simply put no one could very well stop her.

"How old are you?" There was no beating around the bush with Riye, if she had a question she asked it, who needs to waste time having pointless conversation? She smiled a little and scratched her cheek in a way that suggested it was a nervous tick, the red-head was fully aware of how out of order the question was considering she didn't even know the guy's name.

Kei Wakahisa

Image"look, I understand. You want to know how I know about your... talents and all, but I think the guy with the weird eye is right." For a slight moment Kei's normal smile wavered, what an insulting thing to say and this was coming from the guy who was shirtless only moments ago? "We need to get out ASAP." Looking away from the blonde boy, Kei exhaled and closed his eyes so that his kind smile could once again return to his face. It was certainly a good thing he had so many years of practicing this smile of his otherwise there was no way he would be able to keep his cold demeanor from being discovered.

Back to the important thing however, Riye had disappeared again and he needed to find her. What if she fell asleep somewhere in this forsaken building and it collapses on top of her. The horror of the idea made Kei's brows furrow and made him chew the inside of his lip. Damn. If only I hadn't looked only she had common sense enough not to go wandering off. No matter how much he loved and adored his little sister even he can be find her odd demeanor a little annoying, but only when it threatened her safety. I would have seen her if she had gone forward, which means she probably wen-

"What will you have us do?" Kei eyed the girl who had just spoken, a little dumbfounded after having been in such deep thought. Quickly his mind scrambled to catch up with his eyes and ears and translated her words so that he could offer up a response. Thinking about her question he leered at the red-eyed boy as he slipped away. Where is that imbecile sneaking off to? He would have made a move to follow him, however, he didn't want to leave this spot for fear that his sister would return looking for him. It would be just like her to return right after he left. He furrowed his brows, still, if the red-eyed boy was headed in the direction of the window he spoke of earlier it would not be a bad idea to trail after him. Kei did not trust him to return to the group and actually guide the lot of them to an exit.

A sharp jolt shot from the back of his head down to his neck and Kei felt himself wince in pain and wobble slightly. He wasn't entirely sure if the wobbling was due to the injury or the lack of sleep. Perhaps it was his selfishness and need for Riye's touch speaking, but he really wished his younger sister was by his side right now. While it wasn't entirely fair nor healthy for either of them that he was constantly leeching off his sister's energy the boy did not have a choice in the matter. He couldn't survive without her energy.

"Are you all right?" Kei turned to look at the girl called Naomi, a small smile encompassed his face as he nodded a little.

"Thank you for your worry, but I am quite alright. I just received a slight bump to the head earlier during the earthquake. Nothing life threatening I assure you." From up ahead he heard Ariana yelling after the group, apparently they had located an exit, nodding in that general direction Kei spoke again, "You should quickly make your way out of the building. I'll follow as soon as I locate my sister, so please don't wait up for me."

Turning on his heels Kei headed down the hallway that he and his sister had originally come from and much to his gratification soon located the red head speaking to another man not too far away. A small glare adorned his face as he observed the boy, but no sooner did it appear was it replaced with his normal gentle features. "Riye. There you are, please don't wander off like that it worries me."

The red-head turned to look at her brother and pursed her lips, "You worry too much, you're going to be old way before me." The girl eyed his pained and faded aura and held out her hand to her brother. His smile left his face as he looked at it then at the third member of the small ensemble, "You're tired, right? Give m-"

"Not now, Riye. Come, they've found an exit we should quickly escape the confines of this rather rundown abode." The elder twin turned and motioned for his sibling to follow him back down the hallway towards the before mentioned window.

"It must be exhausting having to be polite all the time."

"Not really. No."

Shaking her head, the girl lazily started to follow her brother but halted after only a couple of steps. Turning back at the boy with the antique aura she arched an eyebrow before yawning out a sentence, "You coming or would you rather stay in the abandoned building?" Deep down inside, Kei felt his soul grimace. It would seem there would be one more addition to the massive throng of incompetent people.

Ian Emanuel Erian

"I was training with a friend when I passed out, and then I woke up here..." Mikasa explained. "I don't know what's going on but, I honestly don't think this is a coincidence. Everyone seems a bit off too."

"Oh..." Ian muttered. Ian looked around, and saw that these strangers DID seem a bit... off. "You're right about that...

"However... I was still in a mission... I remember shaking and rumbling from where I was camping out. It was somewhere in the arctic- and I looked up to see an avalanche coming down. Then a flash-bang blew up right under me... and that was what I remembered until I woke up here."
Ian explained.

"What sorcery... what sorcery is this... what form of illusion..." "What the Hell is going on here?" A voice sounded from a far off direction.

Ian couldn't help but turn his head to the source, which was one of the members of the group looking out an open window. Sighing, Ian walked to the window to see what was going on. A whole city was laid out in the view. It was daytime, and the light revealed all the tall skyscrapers and roads. Reaching to his sniper rifle, Ian detached the scope and put it to one of his eyes to get a closer look.

The roads were on the ground. Cars ran on gasoline and on 4 wheels. People wore more fabric and carried less technology than what Ian was used to- then again, this was coming from an ex-shut-in. However, the fact is, the state Ian saw the city in... was 2 things: peaceful (thankfully for him) and primitive. Ian had seen better days for technological advancements. Cars, cell phones (touch-screen or not), and even more green than what the soldier was used to seeing in a city. They were all clues that the human race's advancements... just went backwards. "Indeed..." Ian muttered. "Everything looks so... old and ancient."

Asher Lucian Evans

"So it would seem." The red-haired girl responded. Judging by her appearance, Asher speculated she is just an ordinary fellow, so hopefully this isn't some kind of kidnapping for powers. She seemed a bit sarcastic from her response to Asher's... well, a bit obvious comment on her dilemma. Then again, the sarcasm might be because he deserved it. Other than that though, she might be a cheery person. Looks can deceive, however.

Asher pulled the girl up after she just stared at his hand and waited until Asher said his intentions. Hm... Slower thought processing and realization... She's most likely sleepy. Asher thought. "Thanks." She said, dusting herself off. "I wish I could say this kind of stuff doesn't usually happen to me, but I think I'll keep wishing."

Asher shrugged in response. Of course, here comes to worst case scenario. "How old are you?"

Asher opened his mouth to respond, but lucky favored him for once. Out of the corner of his eye, Asher saw a male coming, one that looked almost like the girl in front of him. "Riye. There you are, please don't wander off like that it worries me." The boy said. Ah... so her name is Riye. Nice name. Asher thought.

"You worry too much, you're going to be old way before me." Ryie responded. Eyeing the boy, Asher did see hints of fatigue- and possible hostility towards him. "You're tired, right? Give m-"

"Not now, Riye. Come, they've found an exit we should quickly escape the confines of this rather rundown abode." Oh? What was she going to do...?

"It must be exhausting having to be polite all the time."

"Not really. No." Obviously, they speak to each other as if they knew one another- which is the likeliest. The boy turned and motioned for Ryie to follow him. Of course, she did, but she turned to Asher once more. "You coming or would you rather stay in the abandoned building?" Ryie asked. Definitely, definitely sarcastic. Asher thought.

"Yeah. I'm coming." Asher responded as he began to move his feet. "And to answer your question, I'm eighteen." The lie was said in a seemingly truthful tone. The Immortalis had no regrets in lying about his age, really. After all, he had said it so many times... It was all too easy for him now to say a false age. Hm... this might be an interesting experience...

Mikasa was listening Ian when she got distracted by a far off noise, she heard a female voice, "Everyone quickly, the window's open we can finally get out of here!". Without thinking twice, Mikasa headed out where Ariana's voice came from. Apparently, the window Joshua had claimed to see prior their meeting was indeed where he had said it was. The window was now opened and Mikasa did not want to wait any second longer to get away, however when she remembered everyone that was still inside she let out a sigh and returned where she had left the group.

Mikasa was not used to socialize with others, neither was she easy to make friends and she didn't know anyone besides Ian, that much was true. Even so, that did not mean she would allow herself to leave them to possibly die from the collapsing building. Most if, not everyone, seemed to be unharmed civilians in her eyes, though she knew they were more than probably normal humans and they were far from helpless seeing from the energy that the gave off. Even so, she went back in case they had not heard Ariana.

She first noticed the main group where Naomi, Yuu, and... 'wait a minute... there's a new one' she thought as she saw the new blonde addition. 'you better not give any trouble' she thought seriously giving him a look. At the end she simply told them in an order-like fashion, like she always did, "The others have found an exit, I suggest you better follow it." Before anyone could give her attitude or question her or all the above, she continued. "We do not know if there is another exit, however as you may have noticed the building is about to collapse. The window is already opened, go straight all the the way through the hallway, turn left and go straight again. The last room to the left". she finally said before finding out there were still others missing. 'great... she thought before she was on her way.

She continued walking until she finally heard distant chatter, "You coming or would you rather stay in the abandoned building?". Before she continued listening, or put any attention to their conversation they were having, she moved closer finally seeing the girl with the orange hair, her brother and... yes a new addition. "And to answer your question, I'm eighteen" the new male said.

Mikasa simply spoke again, making her presence noticeable again, "They found an exit" she said before turning to Kei, he seemed a bit weakened, almost as if he was hurt. Also, he seemed the most civilized for the moment being. "A window nearby, the one Rowan mentioned, we weren't able to find another exit yet and we are running out of time. I suggest you leave before that time comes." She finally said before taking her leave.

Without making further delay, she headed towards the window. She hastened her pace when suddenly someone bumped into her, the girl named Naomi. "Gomenasai~! the girl said a bit frightened and surprised.


Naomi was still waiting for Kei to answer when he reassured her, "Thank you for your worry, but I am quite alright. I just received a slight bump to the head earlier during the earthquake. Nothing life threatening I assure you."
after Ariana said she had found the exit he spoke again, "You should quickly make your way out of the building. I'll follow as soon as I locate my sister, so please don't wait up for me."

He left as soon as he finished talking, not letting Naomi to answer to his suggestion. "Wait~!" she said but he was already out of her sight. Not too later after, someone else entered the room, it was none other than Mikasa. Naomi didn't know what to think of her, but she felt somewhat intimidated by her. As soon as she finished telling them again about the exit, she disappeared again.

Naomi didn't know whether to wait for the others to leave so she could leave with them, but at the end she decided to go help Kei to find his sister. After all, he was the person she trusted more, alongside with Yuu and Aria, besides she was worried about his injury. She walked through the hallways not being able to find anyone, she felt strange from the atmosphere and having a horrible
sense of direction did not help either.

ImageShe suddenly heard a loud noise, a piece of wood from the upper floor collapsed almost crushing Naomi, it was obvious it would not take long before the structure finally collapsed.

She let out a cry as the wood only stood a few inches away, and she started running where she oped would be the window. 'Maybe the others are already there' she thought as she started walking faster. It was then when she bumped into something, more like into someone. It was nonetheless than the girl who had warned her to leave, suddenly a little scared, not knowing what she would do as she learned that she had ignored her command/suggestion. "Gomenasai~! she said quickly.

"What are you doing here?" Mikasa said a bit annoyed. Naomi was about to explain herself when Mikasa spoke again "it doesn't matter, we need to get out of here" she said walking towards the exit. Naomi trembling a bit remembering her strange armor put herself in front of her with both hands in front stopping Mikasa, she bowed her head saying, "Please... wait..." Naomi hesitated a bit before speaking again, but at the end she finished almost yelling, "I think someone is hurt, I also don't know if everyone is out yet!"

Mikasa starred at her seriously, "look, we don't have time to waste here. I assume the person you say that is hurt is none other than Wakahisa, however we cannot do anything if he doesn't evacuate can we? I have already said what I had to say. That is all." she said before she moved her hands away and kept walking.

Kei Wakahisa

Image"Yeah. I'm coming. And to answer your question I'm eighteen." Kei immediately felt the jolt of realization that coursed through his brain whenever someone within earshot told a lie. He turned his head in order to glance back at the boy, his eyes narrowing in the process. It was strange to him, why of all things would he lie about something as inconsequential as his age. Unless, that is, his true age was unnatural for the human race. At which point one would have to question his true heritage. Of course, as it is now, Kei was simply speculating for the reason why the boy would lie. The best way to figure out the truth was to gather more information without letting the boy know that Kei was aware of the lie, otherwise he would put his guard up.

Looking forward once again Kei saw a newcomer, or rather he saw the woman called Mikasa again. He nodded in her direction as she spoke, "They found an exit." How aggravating, to be told that which he already knew. He himself came to find his sister for that very reason, but alas, Kei being as polite as he was would hold his tongue. Riye on the other hand was not as wise.

"No...really?" The sarcasm that was dripping from her mouth was noted by her elder brother who simply sighed in defeat. He really couldn't change that about her, nor did he wish to, after all he loved every aspect of his sister. Even her overbearing sarcasm, of course there was a time and place for it. Fortunately, Mikasa took the higher road and completely ignored Riye's comment.

The woman turned towards Kei and continued, "A window nearby, the one Rowan mentioned, we weren't able to find another exit yet and we are running out of time. I suggest you leave before that time comes." Again, it seemed to Kei that she was simply mirroring his own words back to him. He internally grumbled in unadulterated annoyance; this Mikasa woman was starting to rub him the wrong way with her comments. For what purpose did she think they were heading in that direction for? Did she not hear him earlier when he told the entire group it would be in everyone's best interest to leave, all the while she was have a reunion of sorts. Incredibly, however, his calm and gentle facade never disappeared.

"Thank you, Miss Clark. We are actually headed in that direction now." Bowing his head and placing his hand on the small of his sister's back he effectively excused himself and his sibling so that they could speed down the hall. Admittedly, as they 'raced' down the hall Kei felt himself grow dizzy from both his head injury and lack of sleep. He had expended too much energy earlier during that earthquake, and now he was nearing his limit.

Fortunately, it took a very short amount of time for the two siblings to locate the famous window. As proof that chivalry had not died quite yet, Kei pressured his twin to go through first, much to her chagrin. "You're the one with the head injury, you go." She declared stubbornly as she tried to shove him out the window.

"This is not a battle you will win, and we really don't have the time to argue about it." Riye stared flatly at her brother before grumbling and doing as she was told. Kei smiled, pleased that he had won this argument with Riye with a single sentence, before following her out.

Riye Wakahisa

ImageRiye was fully aware that Kei had detected a lie. However, she figured she'd question him about it later. After all she hardly had the chance to do it now as she was hustled in the direction of an exit by her brother, who was obviously not feeling well. No longer did his aura alone tell her that he was in need of an energy boost, now he was even beginning to sway a little as he walked. However, he wouldn't allow her to make skin contact with her sibling, so, grumbling in annoyance, Riye opted to wait until later just as her sibling had order her to do.

When the two sibling finally crawled out of the window, Riye being highly ungraceful, dived face first into the ground on the other side. "Whoops." She mumbled as she stood up once again and wiped herself off. Then turning to her brother she quickly grabbed his shoulders to keep him from making the same mistake she did. The red-head didn't want the injury on his head growing any worse. "Careful."

"Thank you." Kei smiled at his younger sibling as he planted his feet on the ground outside the collapsing building.

"Who says chivalry is dead?" The red-head playfully smirked at her brother before smacking him on the back. He stumbled forward in response causing Riye to withdraw her hand, "Eh, sorry." Responding to her apology, Kei grinned fondly at the young woman and patted her shoulder before motioning towards the group that had gathered a little ways a way. Trailing after her brother they approached the group which was apparently speaking about a city a short distance away.

"Everything looks so... old and ancient." Riye gave a once over of the city before mentally deciding that it was in fact not old and ancient. Maybe a little on the aged side, definitely not the newest city, but certainly not the oldest either. That guy is nuts if he thinks that city is 'ancient'. She was about to voice her thoughts however, another lady did so first, Ariana, "Old and ancient?..." She paused. "You're Erian-san... correct? Don't you think you're over-exaggerating just a little bit? I mean yes I'll admit the city looks a couple of years older than what is the norm but I think "Old and ancient..." might be a bit of a stretch... don't you?"

Riye nodded her approval, finally someone was making a little more sense. Again, she was about to voice her own thoughts but she was interrupted once more. She shot an annoyed look in the direction of the boy who had opened his mouth to speak, Joshua, the boy with the cool eye she recalled, "That city, old, new or ancient is the only visible source of human activity...I suggest we await the others and head there post-haste... wouldn't you agree... "Miss" Kaizuke?" Riye coughed slightly, yawned, and rubbed the sleep from her eyes. She could agree with him on that matter. However, she had no plans to wait for the other. Mainly due to the fact that her brother was still injured and could use some medical attention.

"As much as I would love to stick around and wait for everyone else to show up my brother is injured, so I'm going on ahead to the nearest hospital," She turned to her brother. This worked out for her in two ways, first of all her brother really did need some medical attention; secondly, she could provide him with the energy boost he needs without anyone around to see her do it. Grabbing his sleeve she started to drag her brother in the direction of the city.

He went rather willingly, however, he didn't fail to turn around and look back at the group, "Sorry about this, it was nice meeting you all. Until we meet again then?" He stumbled a little as he was dragged but alas he allowed himself to be pulled in the direction of the city.

OOC: Don't worry, they'll be back with the group pretty quickly (if they do in fact get separated) Riye can find them again, and I'll be giving them a reason to go back and find everyone pretty soon. But Kei needs medical attention, and a hospital is a great way to figure out the fact that they went back in time.
