Eden looked over an smiled gently. "Yeah, Just got into a little 'fight' with some demonic beast things. But Im fine." She stretched softly and winced as one of her bones cracked back into place. "Is there something you wanna ask me?" She look back over at the mirror. She then put her attention over to Emalia who was sleeping enveloped in her own wings. "Hmm. She sure fell asleep fast. She smiled. She yawned softly. "You Wouldent happen to know where Arian is, do you? I haven't seen him since last night."

Emalia Dres Van
Emalia had sure enough, wrapped her own wings around herself and fallen asleep. All you could was her innocent face out of the pure white that covered her body.
She snored ever so lightly.
She turned softly in her sleep to face away from Eden.

Eden nodded gently. "I'll go round him up." She stood up and with an ear splitting shriek she collapsed again. "Im good!" She said before standing up and walking to go find him. "Arian!" She yelled as she continued to walk. "Goddammit, Arian.. Where are you?" She looked around.

Kaoz Bloodred nodded, and closed the Scrying spell. Then she looked around at their less than 200 troops. They were going to need re-inforcements! This was a major fort, and if control is lost the whole state is lost.

Arian Fay literally appeared right infront of Eden, he sort of faded into reality.
"Yeah? What's up- oh..." He said looking around at the carnage. "Are you okay?" He asked suddenly worried for Eden.

Eden laughed softly and latched onto his arm for leverage before nuzzling his cheek gently. "Just got into a little fight is all. Im fine Hun." She smiled softly. "But anyways Kaoz needs us for something." She began walking again and turned her face so he couldent see her wincing.
(Phone and in the middle of classes.)

Arian Fay nodded and began to follow her. He seemed to shimmer for a minute then, finally, was solid.
"Who?" He asked, malice evident in his voice. He wasn't referring to who Kaoz was, rather who she'd fought. "Hey... Where's your sis? I haven't seen her in a while." He tried to ask nonchalantly.

Eden suddenly stopped walking in her tracks. She clenched her fists into balls tightly. "I don't want to talk about it...," Her voice was tinged with pain as she continued walking again, trying to change the subject that obviously disturbed her. "We have to go and help Kaoz." She simply put out as she looked back at him and forced a smile, trying to mask whatever it was that was discomforting her.

Kaoz Bloodred shook her head sadly.
"Will. The situation is bad. I've had to call in the Veiled Brotherhood. This is
Skylar, she's the head of the Veiled. In case you didn't know, the Veiled Brotherhood is part of the Rebellion, they're one of the factions like the Templar and the Mages." She tapped her metal claw-tipped vampire gloves together.
"We have 200 troops. Plus those of the Veiled. Our troops are Templar, heavy armor and some with heavy weapons, others with light weapons and a shield. The Veiled are assassins, thieves, and anyone else who can kill without being seen. They are our shadows, and they are probably our only hope."


Skylar cut Kaoz off.
"We'll need the Mages. We don't have time."


Kaoz Bloodred shook her head in response.
"No, they don't have time. We need to act. We need Arian and Eden and her sister."

"No-one's seen Izabel Ridley Blackwell in three months." Skylar challenged.
"And you think I care? She'll show up. We can count on her! We have to, because she and Eden are two very strong elementals, and Arian is a Caster." She sighed and leaned against William. Her jet-black aura pulsated from her like radiation. It was harmless, but a sign of frustration.

Skylar nodded.
"I do agree. The Mages won't make it. But it's two hundred versus a couple thousand." She looked
Kaoz dead in the eyes. "And Divina Magnus is with them."


Arian Fay sighed and wrapped an arm around Eden.
"Come on. I have a bad feeling about what's to come. I... Might even need to call my brother..." He looked away quickly.

Eden smiled gently and placed a hand over his. "Whatever it is, We'll get through it. We always do, don't we?" She squeezed his hand gently, coughing to the side lightly. Her face was paler than usual but she didn't really seem to mind it. "I don't know where Kaoz wants us to meet her though." She looked around, shrugging lightly.

Kaoz Bloodred sighed and shrugged.
"Skylar here, tells me Divina is part of the advancing army."

"Leading," Skylar corrected. "Divina is leading the advancing troops.
Kaoz nodded half-heartedly.
"There you have it. He's leading them. Wonderful. I guess we'll get to see him in action, now won't we?"


Arian Fay looked at Eden, concerned.
"Baby, are you okay? And to answer the last statement..." He looked up. "I don't know. A fort nearby. But how hard is it to miss... What did she say, 2,000 troops? Something like that." He shook his head. "I don't know how to
scry, normally it's used by hydromancers, water elementals, and mages. I don't even know how Kaoz can scry. There's no cell reception, and I don't even have a phone. Contacting her by magical means seems the only way possible.

Eden smiled and poked his nose gently, continuing to walk. "Im fine. Don't you worry about me. And yes, there is no phone reception. But even if we did have it, Magical conversation is the most efficient way. With magic, The Dark Ones cannot track us, or tap into our conversation. With cell phones, thats possible." She turned around, her knees buckling as she fell forward, grabbing his shoulders, coughing again. She soon smiled again. She always had such a happy attitude about everything around him. It's as if she were afraid she didn't he Wouldent be.

Arian Fay was genuinely worried about her, but didn't press further on the matter.
"And that's not true. Many, many, many types of... Species can track magickal energy, sense magic, and other types of the sort."

Eden sighed as she saw the sun setting. "Maybe we should, stop here?" She cocked her head softly to the side. She cracked her neck softly before yawning. "Eh, whatever..." She coughed again, rugged as usual. She rubbed her eyes softly, still holding onto him.

Arian Fay nodded.
"We could settle here. Or you could. I'm going to scout the area." He began to walk off. He wasn't worried about setting up camp, as Eden was a water elemental and could probably make herself a bed out of water or ice... or something. It was still a bit strange to him.

Eden F. Blackwell

Eden only sighed. "Alright be careful."as soon as she was sure he was gone, she climbed a nearby tree. She looked at the moon, smiling. She felt as if the moon were her connection to her sister. Her smile soon faded as she remembered the last words to her beloved older sibling as the moon clouded up... "Izzy..." She said quietly. Eden began singing, her voice was echoed softly around:
"Fate has been cruel and order unkind
How can I have sent you away?
The blame was my own; the punishment, yours
The harmony's silent today

But into the stillness I'll bring you a song
And I will your company keep
Till your tired eyes and my lullabies
Have carried you softly to sleep

Once did a girl who shone like the sun
Look out on her kingdom and sigh
She smiled and said, "Surely, there is no body
So lovely and so well beloved as I"

So great was her reign and so brilliant her glory
That long was the shadow she cast
Which fell dark upon the young sister she loved
And grew only darker as days and nights passed

Lullay moon princess, goodnight sister mine
And rest now in moonlight's embrace
Bear up my lullaby, winds of the earth
Through cloud, and through sky, and through space

Carry the peace and the coolness of night
And carry my sorrow in kind
Isabelle, you're loved so much more than you know
Forgive me for being so blind

Soon did that girl take notice that others
Did not give her sister her due
And neither had she loved her as she deserved
She watched as her sister's unhappiness grew

But such is the way of the limelight, it sweetly
Takes hold of the mind of its host
And that foolish girl did nothing to stop
The destruction of one who had needed her most

Lullay moon princess, goodnight sister mine
And rest now in moonlight's embrace
Bear up my lullaby, winds of the earth
Through cloud, and through sky, and through space

Carry the peace and the coolness of night
And carry my sorrow in kind
Isabelle, you're loved so much more than you know
May troubles be far from your mind
And forgive me for being so blind

The years now before us
Fearful and unknown
I never imagined
I'd face them on my own

May these thousand winters
Swiftly pass, I pray
I love you; I miss you
All these miles away

May all your dreams be sweet tonight
Safe upon your bed of moonlight
And know not of sadness, pain, or care
And when I dream, I'll fly away and meet you there
Sleep...

Once he had gotten out of not only sight, but out of earshot too, Arian Fay pulled something out of his pocket.
It was a necklace consisting of a silver chain and a silver crescent moon symbol, the symbol of the Casters.
He threw it on the ground, and said a short Caster Chant. A door opened infront of him. At first it was blindingly white, being made completely of Light, but then it slowly turned a faded lime-green color.
"It is time." Arian said solemnly. By now he was wondering if it was the right thing to do, to leave Eden alone for this short while. He wondered if he should have brought her...
To meet his family.

Eden F. Blackwell

Eden sighed ever so lightly once she had finished her rather long lullaby. She stood up on the limb she was on and made several platforms of water to the ground, her feet delicately walking on the fragile water. Once she reached the ground, the water dissipated. "It does not take this long to scout the area..." She sighed and limping, looked around for him.
She saw his figure nearby, outlined by the lime-green color of something in front of him. "Arian..?" She said softly, making her way closer slowly.

Arian easily sensed his love coming up from behind him, and he turned around.
"Eden! Why did you follow me?" He asked. He opened his mouth to say something further, but stopped when he was red light bathed around him. He turned to see his portal was now red.
He backed away slowly.
"Ohh... Nononononononono... No... I shouldn't ha-"


"-ve left the portal open so long?"
A familiar, yet malicious deep voice resonated. A skinny figure in a dark, shadowy robe stepped out of the door. It was already nearly sunset, and the light of the portal played with the shadows and made his silhouette all the more scarier. He looked up to reveal emotionless yellow eyes. Eyes like pools of molten gold, flat yet endlessly deep. They seemed to search your mind and soul and tear apart at everything you know.
The darkness literally shifted, writhed, and flailed around him like smoke in the wind. A purple aura of evil resonated from his body.
Yet... His pale face bore a smile.

"Ahhh... Arian. Eden. Long time no see, yes?" Asked the evil figure. The red light of the portal started fading a bit, but he flicked his hand upwards, and it grew brighter. The portal stayed for now.

Arian was unfazed and stood his ground. He was shaking violently, however. Arian knew it wasn't something he could control. The man had a cloak of fear, nothing could be in it's presence and not be scared... Unless, of course, they were more powerful. More powerful than the Dark Caster. One of the two Dark Ones. The Lich King, the deal-dealer. This evil man was-

"Divina Magnus. It's been so long." He said almost sadly. "Arian, I came here to stop you from using the portal, and to have a second attack point on the army... But you and this girl are so useless. It would be impossible to do anything against me. I'll leave now, and let you gather your family. By the way, did you know? Tonight is a full moon! Beautiful! But it's more than just a full moon. It's a Blood Moon."
Divina started back towards the portal, then stopped. "Oh, and Arian. Your niece is safe. She joined us you know. You haven't seen her in a few years, but she turned Dark last year. Yes... She's an Evo." And with that, he stepped into the portal.

Arian had gasped at his last words.
"An Evo..." He whispered. "This is bad news..." He said and shivered. He half expected demons to pour from the portal, but was relieved when it turned lime-green again.
He looked to Eden. "She's an Evo, Eden... She's one of the most powerful Dark Casters, just under a Cataclyst, she's an Evo... T-they are known to be incredibly powerful... They can influence people, like a Siren can, but they can also Evolve, such as morphing into other people or into anyone. Any animal. Any demon, any monster. They are feared by other Casters, and my niece is one!" After another shiver, he grabbed Eden gently.
"We have to find my brother... We need him and the family for this war."

Eden F. Blackwell

When Arian went to grab her, her skin was fiery hot and she was sweating and panting. The scare from Divinia had caused another episode from her illness. She had only had one other spell before and she almost didn't make it out of it. She fell on to her knees, not looking up at Arian. Her arms shook violently as she coughed repetitively. Her skin was as white as snow. The only person who could help her was her sister. But, her sister had been missing fro around three months. Anyone that knew Eden well enough to hear about her illness feared if her sister were not around when it happened, she would die in a matter of days... The only thing they could do for her was pray for the best.

Arian was shocked about Eden's current state. But he didn't let it freeze him up, no, he picked her up and stepped through the portal.
On the other side, they ended up at a large coastline mansion. It was in Florida, but since there was only a very, very small sliver of Florida left, it was more like the south coast of Georgia. The manor was surrounded by a large stone wall, with a single cast iron gate. They appeared right in front of the gate. The gate had been open as long as the portal was, so it was open when they arrived.
"Eden. I'm going to take you inside, we'll see what we can do. It'll be fine."

Eden was still shaking softly in his arms. Her skin felt like boiling water. Which basically was what it was. Her hair was draped over her face so Arian could not see her trying to keep her eyes open. For if she didn't, she would enter a coma. Her fingertips held onto him lightly as if too try and tell him what was happening. Her breathing had slowed tremendously, but far from enough to kill her.

Noel Deiheir

Noel swiftly swept herself into the tree tops, her pure white hair flowing along behind her. A smile was spread across her face for she had finally escaped her sister. She was in solitude now. She opened her book and began reading.

Arian C. Fay carried Eden through the gate, and up the steps. Beside him, his brother appeared in the same manner Arian would have.
Angelo L. Fay smiled brightly.
"Arian! I knew I sensed your presence! What a n- who's that?" He asked, seeing Eden. He glided oer thr floor, towards them. "She looks ill."

Arian sighed.
"Quit copying my powers, brother." He said. Then he looked down to her. "We were coming to ask for help. The Rebellion has seen better days. It hasn't seen worse. Tonight, 20,000 troops of the Dark Ones march forth to take over a fort guarded by 200 troops, some of the Veiled including Skylar, and some of the Founders including me, Eden, Kaoz and William."

Angelo gasped. "What?! Why would so many of the Rebellion powers be in one place?!"
Arian sighed, again. "Brother. It's the last fort of Texas. This battle is a major turning point in the war. We either win it and keep a foothold or lose it and lose another, major state. Plus, tonight is going to be a Blood Moon. We need your help, brother."
Angelo nodded, then looked down to Eden. "She's ill. With what, I can't be certain. Bring her in. He led Arian in and nodded when he laid her on the living room couch. "I'll go get Lily and Ken."

Kaoz was becoming uneasy. Something was in the air. Something evil. She'd felt this before, twice before. On her 100th birthday, and on the day Divina became Dark.
It was in the air. A Blood Moon was rising.
She looked to the horizon, where the sun had just touched the ground, bathing the sky red. The moon hadn't risen yet, but it would peer over the horizon a beautiful crimson and enhance any and all evil powers. It could be good, considering even the Rebellion has some creatures of Darkness, people evil by nature but still believe in the Rebellion's cause. Of course, the whole opposing army would be stronger too.

They felt it before they heard it. The heard it before they saw it.
The ground quaked, and it was a deathly sensation.
Second, a low rumble quickly turned to the sound of billions of booms.
Third, a black line appeared on the horizon. Seven miles away across the plains.
Kaoz quickly assessed the battle field. It was a flat plain, with occasional hills. There were multiple trenches near the fort. The fort itself was a stone structure surrounded by a stone wall with a wooden pike fence outside the wall. Many tents were inside the fort. Some tents harbored troops, but most were outside, on the walls, or in the trenches. Kaoz and William, along with Skylar, were on the wall with the gate, looking out to the horizon.

The army grew larger. They completely covered the horizon, now, no matter where you looked there was a dark line on the horizon.
Kaoz's breath stopped for a second. She looked to William.
"They've surrounded us. They will attack at midnight... But the worst part, we're trapped here until then unable to do anything. Arian and Eden better get here quick or we're screwed. Of course, they can only get here by portal now. No one can get in or out by land, it has to be by air or other means. I hope some sort of surprise backup is coming." She said, then leaned against William.


(Last few lines were a hint, hint for you Will/Dementedness.)

Eden suddenly shot up and looked at him and then Angelo. "Where am I..?" She spoke in a hushed tone, still being kind of weak from the state she was in.

Lillian A. Fay

Lillian made her way into the room, surprised to see her Brother-in-law there. "Arian," She tilted her head. "Is something the matter?" Her voice was small and fragile sounding. Her attention then turned to the ill on the couch. "Who is this? Is she alright?" Her eyebrows knitted together softly with worry.

Kaoz Bloodred had entered her tent while William and Hazel proceeded to talk. There was less than 3 hours left until the massacre. She saw no chance of survival right now. She put on her black light armor and her metal-tipped gauntlets. She fastened her sword to her side, put her dagger in her boot, then walked out. Her hood and cowl were down, but now she was nearly unrecognisable from how she was moments before. Before she put the armor on, she looked like a teenager. She looked around 18. Now, she looked like an adult and her posture, the way she stood, said leader.
"Attention!" She hollered. Instantly, the Templar that were goofing off, the one who were resting, and even the ones actually paying attention, stood straight and stopped what they were doing.
"In approximately three hours, they will attack. That won't be good, not at all. But there's something else you need to know. Most likely, they'll be sending scouts. It's dark out here. Keep a look out. And the Blood Moon gives them way more power than a full moon." She looked at each and every soldier that was there with her. "Plus they might even send small waves after us. So..." She sighed. "Just do your best. We'll pull through this."


Arian sighed.
"Eden, honey. It's okay. We're at my brother's house." He looked to Lillian. "It's been so long. You too, brother." He said. He kept looking at them, but this time there was more sadness in his eyes.
"I heard about her... She joined the Dark Ones."
