"They say not to judge a book by its cover, but when that cover looks like it can kick your ass I've found that it stops a lot of problems before they start."





ImageHeight | Weight
5'9" | 143 lbs.

Hair Colour
A nearly white, sandy/blondish color.
"The color of my hair doesn't much matter to me but... I suppose I do like this color."

Eye Colour
Typically a light and steely grey, but when her demonic blood gets flowing they swiftly become a dangerous looking shade of red
"Best get out of my way when I'm seeing red."

Physical Description
Standing several inches taller than most girls (and some boys her age), Kris is a slightly intimidating figure. Possessing a very fit and athletic build, she certainly gives off the impression of someone you don't want to mess with. Her skin is a healthy and tanned olive color causing the pale nature of her eyes and hair to stand out quite a bit. The way she keeps her hair is rather simple and low-effort as she prefers to just keep it cut short and unstyled in any way. Her eyes are sharp and observant, however this is typically concealed by the rather relaxed and aloof expression she wears at most times.

In a similar way to her hair, Kris' wardrobe and choice of clothing is rather simple as well. Her typical outfit never changes much and as a general rule she sticks to a 'function over fashion' mindset when choosing her clothing. Aside from this, the only things that really stand out at all are the necklace and bracelet she can be seen wearing at almost all times.




Image




"I won't be used as a tool again."





PersonalityImage
Straightforward | Honest | Impulsive | Loyal | Laid-back | Protective

Likes
Milk | The color red | Dogs | Air conditioners | Being praised | Cooking | Guns and knives | Coke | Music | Gum

Dislikes
Being told what to do | Stuck-up people | Liars | Being the center of attention | Cowards | Difficult books

Habits
Stealing | Stretching | Chewing on things | Touching her bracelet when stressed

Flaws
Short-tempered | Reckless | Low empathy

Abilties | Powers
Burning Blood - Kris' demonic blood burns and boils with fiery and searing heat once it leaves her body.

Eldritch Symbology - Fueled by the power of her demonic blood, Kris' body is covered in magical tattoos which serve to dramatically increase her physical attributes. These markings are typically invisible but show up as crimson red markings on her skin when in active use. The superhuman impacts can be quite hard on her body so it is sometimes dangerous for her to use it excessively.

Sense of Smell - While it isn't much of a power per se, Kris has a very sharp nose. This is perhaps a major factor to her skill and enjoyment in cooking.




Image




"It's not that I can't believe in other people, I just find it a lot easier and safer to just believe in myself."





Romantic Interest
TBD

Character Opinions
Adrianne Libuth - "Weak. That's the first impression this girl gives off and where I come from that's basically like announcing yourself as a target to the whole world. I wager she's been sheltered most her life as a mage though, so what would she know? I guess I'm pretty indifferent at this point, she hasn't earned my respect and she hasn't done much to get on my bad side either and she's cute at least, so we'll see how things go."

Kali Minami -

Baron Weatherbee - "She's... Strange, she's tiny and she looks even younger than me. I guess I'm happy that the teacher I got stuck with is part demon at least, and she seems pretty... Relaxed. All in all it could be a lot worse."

ImageHistory
Originally created to be used as a tool by a rogue mage, Kris' purpose since birth has been to be used. Her mother was paid off and tricked into birthing the demonic child and was tossed aside once her job was finished. The mage had an easy time controlling the young demon and was the one who originally inscribed the symbols upon her body, adding them over the years as she matured. Around the age of 12 is when Kris' life changed dramatically. The mage's base of operations within Egypt was discovered and raided, in the process he was arrested and amidst the chaos Kris managed to escape.

From that point forward the term 'street rat' describes much of Kris' history quite accurately. She managed only to get by through thievery and violence in which her success was largely in thanks to her demonic heritage and her enhanced body. As her skills developed she became something of an 'independent contractor' for various criminal outfits, whether someone needed something stolen, delivered, or someone needed to be intimidated, Kris was happy to take their money. As her name grew however, she caught the attention of the Academy. Lacking much of a choice or a reason to stay, off Kris went to a new life.

The morning was slowly passing as the first day of the new year at The Survival Kit Academy was just beginning. Most students were already making their way to their classes and once again, like every year, there was a new batch of mages and demons just waiting to be dealt with. This task always fell onto one person especially to handle.

There stood a particular woman with hair that seemed to embody the essence of fire, with her body tilted ever-so-slightly at an angle before her hips swayed casually to her own personal rhythm. A look of both keenness and daring curiosity bore knowingly upon her curved face, a frightening smirk laying evident on her lips as her pinky orbs gazed intriguingly over the many heads that were grouped before her. Well, what a crowd we got this year.

Within the classroom there was a desk sat in front of her, the woman tapped repeatedly against the hard surface as her eyes exchanged glances between a piece of paper that was held firmly in her hand and the youthful heads that bobbed about in front of her. "Looks like we got everyone -- what luck. Things be already looking up for us." She spoke softly yet boldly with a nod of her head. Confidence radiating from her ever word. And yet, despite the outwardly impression she presumably gave Iris was no fool. She knew that the vast majority of juvenile stares was anything but thrilled to be within her presence, those feeling that way were most likely the demons, she assumed.

"Alrighty. Listen up closely boys and girls, as today is the first chance you get to work in your groups. Even though today is your first ever day here and all, I find that throwing students into the deep end is always guaranteed to produce some… interesting results. With that said, you will be designated teachers to supervise your group, ok?"

Then she remembered, "Oh. The last remainder of your belongings have been sent to your dorms directly."

Pursing her lips together in a momentarily brief thought the young woman glanced towards one of the few windows within the classroom, her ponytail swishing sharply, as her head tilted to the side. "Your teachers will be waiting outside at the academy‘s entrance for you, please make your way directly to them. You all know who your teacher is and what groups your in, though if in doubt just check the papers you were given prior to this induction. They will inform you of your teammates, teacher, and everything else." Slowly refocusing her attention onto the students she continued, ”And by the looks of it lucky group five has me as their supervising teacher -- what fun.”

Moving away from the desk the fiery haired female took a few steps closer towards the rows of students, before raising a hand and pointing the tip of her finger in the direction towards the door. ”I assume you all know how to get to the entrance, right? Now, this will be your first group exercise, so don't blow it -- just yet. You have a whole year to go. Catch you later!” With that the red head skipped over to the door and pushed it open wide, allowing herself to exist first before continuing on and making her way towards the entrance of the academy to meet the teachers.




✮ Baron Weatherbee ✮

Baron stood with a rather absentminded gaze filling her reddish orbs. She had been waiting idly at the academy’s entrance beside her fellow teachers; Mr. Kurayami, Miss. Bombardier and Mr. Alignak. The headmistress had specifically asked each of them to be at the entrance to greet their groups before watching over those students under their particular care. Such a thought made the short girl a tad bit nervous.

”I wander what kind of students I will be tasked with.” The young girl spoke with a curious tone, asking no one in particular except perhaps herself. It was open knowledge that the girl hadn’t been at the academy long, if anything, she was the rookie teacher who felt she had to prove herself a little.

Glancing upwards, the pale blonde looked to the clear sky that hung above her. She watched the clouds floating along before witnessing some birds soar overhead. I hope I get along with my students like birds get along with each other. They stick together. Will my students feel the same? Directing her eyes to the ground for a moment, the girl let out a tired sigh, before eying up her colleagues. To her, they seemed much more experienced.

Could she match them? Equal them? She was still young though eager to better herself.

Of course, just as her time at the academy was knowingly short, a bit like herself, her demon and mage in-heritage was also freely known to much of the students and staff. Baron was always getting questioned on her past, why she was a mix-bred, what her intentions are towards mages and demons, and lord knows what-else. She doesn't mind the hoards of questions so long as they are in good taste -- not everyone is as accepting, but that is a small majority.

Raising an arm halfway she glanced at her watch before turning to the other teachers. ”The induction will be finishing soon and the students should be making their way to us. The headmistress said she would inform us of what exactly the exercise entails once everyone is here. Everyone remember their groups?”




A short while later the headmistress in question arrived and greeted her staff. As a sign of innocent affectation she ruffled the small girls hair just a little, causing Baron to huff and fiddle with her blonde tangles, whilst Iris began to address the teachers and fill them in on what the group exercise would exactly be. "Righty-o! Ladies and gents. You know I thought long and hard over this, and I figured a group exercise of this nature was right up the students alley. We need to know what their made of, who's really in need of help and who's going to be a handful -- you get the idea." She began, moving her hands to her hips before continuing, and taking a deep breath beforehand.

"With permission from the locals I have set up five loose doppelgängers in the town nearby, with each team expected to handle one between them. You, teachers, will watch over them and see how they handle it. The groups must form a strategy and plan to win. If it seems unlikely they can defeat the creature I expect you to deal with it."

Taking a step back the red head stood and waited for the arrival of the students. She could hardly wait, the joy of informing their little minds of the fun she had planned for them. "Let the fun begin."

✮ Kris ✮

This was the day, wasn't it? Kris groaned as she rolled out of bed, she hadn't gotten much sleep that night and of course she wouldn't admit it, but it may have been due her to nerves. As she got dressed she gripped the brass bracelet she often wore around her left wrist tightly before slipping her it onto her arm. After a moment of fishing into her pocket she retrieved the piece of paper that detailed her team, she was relieved to see they were all girls at the very least, but she was unsure what to do. From the sounds of it, she was going to be stuck with these people for quite some time. What kind of impression should I make? If I intimidate them right off the bat I figure I can get them to leave me alone... Would that be best?

With an aggravated sigh she scratched her head and roughly tucked the paper back away into her pocket before spending a final moment sitting atop her bed and staring down at her bracelet. As she stepped through her door and into the hall she shook her head to move a few rebellious strands of hair from her face as she looked up at the ceiling and felt her face assume it's typical aloof and bored expression. She made only one stop on her way to the classroom, at a vending machine to purchase a small carton of milk which she sipped quietly as she walked.

The classroom wasn't too far off from the dorms, so Kris ended up arriving unexpectedly early. She gave a slightly annoyed click of her tongue as she looked over the mostly empty classroom and tossed her empty carton of milk deftly into a nearby trashcan. She was the third to arrive by the looks of it, the other two girls had gone straight for the window but Kris took the seat closest to the door, it would be the fastest way out of the room and she certainly didn't want to spend a moment longer in here than she needed to.

It wasn't long after that the rest of the students poured in, followed by their rather ridiculous looking headmistress. She couldn't help but smirk at the woman's odd get-up and hair, at the very least she didn't look all that stuck up. Kris shrugged the thoughts away and simply leaned forward with an elbow on her desk as she half-heartedly listened to the woman drag on.

"Oh. The last remainder of your belongings have been sent to your dorms directly."

Kris gave a small frown at that. I don't suppose that means they plan on giving me back any of my weapons... I need some new ones, though, getting a gun around here might be pretty hard, a knife though... Easy. She sat up and stretched her arms into the air as the headmistress began wrapping up, giving them instructions, and heading out as quickly as she came. Without a moment of hesitation Kris rose to her feet and walked to the door. Before walking out she glanced over her shoulder at the class, easily spotting the bright heads of hair belonging to her group. Surely they had just as easy a time spotting her, so she decided to simply head out ahead of them and to the front gate.

It was a short walk to the front gate and the group of teachers and a few students was rather easy to spot. Kris simply and quietly walked up near Baron, only glancing at her and giving a nod of greeting to the tiny woman-child before slipping her hands into her pockets and waiting for the rest of her group to catch up.

✮ Adrianne Libuth ✮





Image





Adrianne opened one of her eyes and stared at the ceiling. Today was the day. Today was the day that she would take the first step to making her parents proud of her. She opened both eyes and sat up in her bed. She stretched a little bit. She patted her mouth as she yawned. She made her way out of bed and then she made her way to the shower. She made it quick because she still needed to pack all of her things into suitcases that she brought from home. As she turned off the water, she quickly grabbed a towel so that she wouldn't get cold. She quickly dried herself and dressed in her usual outfit. It looked like a school outfit, but it wasn't. She never attended public school once. She looked over to a piece of paper sitting on the desk which showed her what her team members looked like. She was the leader and the mage of the group but she wasn't sure if she would be able to accomplish this job. She sighed. It doesn't matter what I think now, I can't fail. It's not an option. She looked around her room at the gigantic mess that awaited cleaning. She quickly packed up all of her things and put all the suitcases next to the bed. From what it seemed like, they would come and pick up her luggage. She had stayed in a separate room from the dorms because she didn't want to feel like a burden to her team members until school started. As she looked to make sure she got everything she needed, she moved towards the door.

She opened the door and made her way outside. She walked around the town for a while, needing guidance as she went. She got lost a few times, but she eventually found her way to the school. She stood in front of the front gate and hoped that she wasn't late for her class. She took a deep breath as she ran toward the direction of her classroom. She opened the door quietly and it appeared that she was one of the people that had arrived later than everyone else. She breathed a sigh of relief. She wasn't late for class. She looked around for an empty seat when she looked around and saw Kris sitting in the seat right next to the door. The seat a few feet next to her that was open, so she sat there. She thought Kris looked a little scary, so she decided against sitting with her.

A lady wearing a very unorthodox outfit of clothing walked into the classroom and stood at the front of the room. She never introduced herself and Adrianne was extremely confused as to who she was and why she was talking in the classroom. After a few sentences, she realized that that... was the headmistress. She felt like an idiot and slunk down in her seat in shame. She thought that she would've remembered her because of her amazing ability to memorize anything and everything she read. She sat for the rest of the lecture in that slunk position. By the time she was done explaining, she wanted to walk behind Kris, but by the time she looked up... She was already gone.

She walked out the door and began to memorize the faces of the people that were in her class as she walked. She tried to determine who the demons were and who the mages were, but she had a bit of a hard time with that. Some were easy to spot, while others... Not so much. As she was analyzing one of the people's faces, she tripped on a crack in the sidewalk and tumbled right in front of her supervising teacher, Miss Weatherbee. She quickly got up and took a small bow. She was extremely embarrassed as she said, very quietly, "Excuse my slip up. I... I am the leader of group three, Adrianne Libuth. Pleased to meet you." She knew that she had to make an introduction to her teacher because it would rude if she did otherwise. She then noticed that Kris was there as well. She looked at her and gave her a slight nod. She then turned back to her teacher/supervisor and awaited her response.

Iris hadn’t been waiting long before her eyes clasped directly onto the incoming view of her designated group. She recognized them from the earlier induction and had already taken the time prior to the induction to look over the files of the students within group five. So far, she was certainly interested in them. As the trio approached the woman, the headmistress offered only a mere smirk of intrigue to begin with until the students introduced themselves.

"Good morning, I'm Razin Vamada, and this is Saiko Takashi Decio." One of the demons spoke.

Followed by the young mage, "Hello Ma'am, I'm Roze."

The smirk that stained her lips gradually formed into a soft smile, as Iris kept her hands on her hips and glanced down towards the blonde mage. "It‘s nice to meet you, Roze. I‘m Iris Blackwrath though you can call me Ivy if you prefer, or Miss Blackwrath -- whatever takes your fancy." Shifting her stare she looked to the two demons. "That goes for you two as well, fell free to call me whatever suits your mood, alrighty? Nice to meet you, Razin and Saiko."

Taking a step back the red head eyed up the three individuals and gave the group a swift overall look. So, this is what I'm working with, eh? An all-knowing grin weaved itself onto her features once more, the headmistress feeling optimistic towards the soon-to-be group exercise. Perhaps this little group will surprise me, I hope.

"Even-though I be the headmistress of this academy, I'm still your designated teacher and therefore I am here for you in-case you should ever need me, got it?" She spoke, attempting to sound as non-headmistress-y as she could and try put the group a little more at ease. "All of you are under my care, mage and demons. We are a team."

Sparing a moment to look elsewhere, Iris could see that there were still a few students to appear, and therefore she thought best to hold off from telling the groups about their group-exercise. Not that it was a bad thing, it just meant she'd be more excited when eventually telling them. I can only imagine the looks on their faces.

To pass the time just a little, Iris shifted her weight from foot to foot casually and asked, "So, how you liking the academy? Any problems, questions, or something you gotta say? Don't worry -- I can take it."




✮ Baron Weatherbee ✮





Image





Baron soon noticed one of the members belonging to her group arriving. It was a girl with sandy coloured hair, though she didn't say much to the teacher and only offered a nod of acknowledgement towards the mage-demon.

Ah, Kris if I am correct? The girl thought to herself as her eyes secretly looked over the student. Taking a moment to recall the information from the files she had been given, it was clear that the young demon was Kris. When about to open her mouth and say something Baron suddenly caught a glimpse of a student tumbling just near her.

Just as she was about to offer help the girl had already straightened herself upright once more, before bowing towards Baron. "Excuse my slip up. I... I am the leader of group three, Adrianne Libuth. Pleased to meet you."

”Are you alright Adrianne? You are not hurt are you?” Baron looked the girl over with a hint of concern merging within her soft voice, debating whether to examine her more closely. ”It is a pleasure to meet you too.” It was clear that the girl was another of her students, to which the mage-demon gladly welcomed. Looking to Adrianne and then Kris, she continued, ”I am Baron Weatherbee and I am your designated teacher. Whatever you may need please do not hesitate to ask, I am here to support you and assist you in any way. You may call me Barry if it helps.”

So far two students had arrived, which left only one remaining. By the looks of it she would dealing with girls mostly, an all-girl group being of a particular favourite of the young teacher. Maybe I can do this after all, if I try my best.

Just then she had a thought. ”Do you have any questions? About your groups, the academy or even myself? The headmistress will be explaining your group exercise once all students are present, so we have some time.”

How dull. A sigh escaped her lips as she stood by in the morning sun, the area around her slowly but steadily filling with students of all sorts. She could overhear several conversations starting up around her, teachers trying to be nice, demons being rebellious, and young mages being nervous, none of it really interested her. As the thought to strike up a conversation with her new teacher entered her head, the sound of uncertain feet nearly tripping nearby caught her attention.

What her eyes found when they identified the source of the noise was the slightly disheveled image of her mage leader, Adrianne if memory served correctly. The impression she had gotten from the girl's picture didn't seem too off the mark so far and as she gave an embarrassed and unnecessary apology to their teacher, Kris glanced away and shook her head. It was only the two of them there, their third member seemed to be absent for the moment. Maybe she had the right idea and stayed home... She smirked lightly to herself before looking over to Baron as she spoke up to the two of them for the first time this morning.

”I am Baron Weatherbee and I am your designated teacher. Whatever you may need please do not hesitate to ask, I am here to support you and assist you in any way. You may call me Barry if it helps. Do you have any questions? About your groups, the academy or even myself? The headmistress will be explaining your group exercise once all students are present, so we have some time.”

She had many questions in truth but she wasn't sure what she wanted to ask first and she certainly didn't want to just assault the small woman with her inquiries. "Baron huh?... That's an odd one... But yeah... I've been wondering for a while, why do you look like a little girl? Gives me this urge to just pat you on the head." A small grin formed on her lips as she placed her hands on her hips and looked down at the woman. She wasn't sure how seriously she could take her as a teacher or a figure of authority, but then again this their first time meeting. She didn't bother introducing herself to Adrianne, she figured the mage was already well aware of who Kris was and she wasn't particularly keen on the idea of getting friendly with person who was here to be trained on how to control her.

Raising a slightly bewildered eyebrow, Iris hushed herself and listened to the demon.

"Well, little lady, Takashi here is the Saiko Alpha, the leader of all Kitsune kind, and he has a vast reputation for being very controlled of his abilities. To do that, he has to control his emotions. And this woman just confused the hell out of him enough for it to show on his face, a very rare happening, so it always funny when it does happen."

"Ooh, so we have an actual leader amongst our little group? I must've overlooked that fact." She stated and casually sighed at the realization. "Well, I'll be sure to mind how I go around you, Takashi. No disrespect meant."

As the mage and demon conversed a little more Iris watched quietly and took mental notes now and again. By the looks of it she'd be needing them, quite a lot in fact. As the blonde girl became a tad flustered the headmistress calmly placed a hand to one of her shoulders. "Calm your head. We both got a lot to learn about these demons."

As Razin soon spoke up to her, the woman couldn't help but take notice. He seemed to have a lot to say.

"To tell you the truth, ma'am? I hate it. I was taken here against my will, see. With the re-exposure of the existence of demons, a small town of humans I had been living near realized what I was, and had me captured and sent here out of fear when the mage they called failed in making me go away. They locked me up, threw me in a cell here for a few days, and only let me out this morning. This place smells disgusting, as well. Like humans and their cities."

Raising a hand and lazily scratching the back of her neck the red head shot a glance elsewhere momentarily as she gathered her thoughts. "I hear what your saying though not all us humans are a like -- just like you demons are so different from one another. You get the good with the bad in every batch, eh?" She began, adjusting her view back onto the group before her, though Razin especially for that moment. "I admit, sure, your journey and time here already was not-as-good as it ought to have been. For that, I'm sorry. If you'd allow me to make amends to you for that, I'd be sure-as-hell happy to change your opinion on humans. After all -- I'm here to help you."

Towards his last remark, though, the fiery haired woman smirked with amusement. "You got a hell-of-a nose on you, Razin. But, you'll have to like it or lump it I'm afraid. We humans can't help our smell." Directing her orbs down towards the mage, the woman to a closer look at the young girl before continuing, "What of you girlie, you got anything to say? Or... how about you, Takashi? "




✮ Baron Weatherbee ✮





Image





A few silent moments passed between the group of three, before soon the sandy haired girl finally spoke up with a quesiton of her own. "Baron huh?... That's an odd one... But yeah... I've been wondering for a while, why do you look like a little girl? Gives me this urge to just pat you on the head." She said and placed her hands to her hips, grinning.

At first Baron merely tilted her head slightly, her pale locks flowing over one of her shoulders whilst doing so, as her orange-y orbs traveled upwards to greet the face of the student. Holding her stare for a moment longer the mage-demon studied the taller girl curiously, saying not a peep during these passing seconds, before a minute or so later, as her mouth slowly moved and a gentle sound echoed from within -- her voice, to be exact.

"Physically I age slower whereas mentally I am far advanced." She answered somewhat bluntly, or rather factually, to the girl. Her gaze towards the student never seemingly breaking. "It is a result of my in-heritage of both demon and mage characteristics. In reality I am twenty-three years of age though my appearance says otherwise."

Blinking, and adverting her stare to the ground, Baron took a moment to pause for thought. After doing so, her eyes refocused on Kris, before the young teacher mimicked the student a little and rearranged her own hands, before placing them snugly against her hips. "You may pat me on the head if you wish. Though I may do the same to you, if I can reach." She said, offering the smallest of smiles in her attempt at slight humour. She wasn't the most naturally funny, but she tried. Baron never really got the whole concept of humour but she understood that it helped to lighten the mood. Perhaps her students would like it, somewhat.

She turned to face Adrianne. "Do you have a question?"

Whilst awaiting the girls response, Baron looked to Kris once more before asking, "Tell me, if you would not mind, but what powers, or abilities do you posses? I have read the files provided, though I feel I learn more from you directly."

✮ Kris ✮

Her grin faded ever so slightly as the mini-Baron looked up at her with her blank expression and tilted her head. As the teacher seemed to examine Kris over those few quiet seconds Kris began to feel a bit uncomfortable and returned the teacher's stare with an arched brow, her hands unmoving from her hips. Much to Kris' relief the girl finally spoke up.

"Physically I age slower whereas mentally I am far advanced. It is a result of my in-heritage of both demon and mage characteristics. In reality I am twenty-three years of age though my appearance says otherwise."

By this time the amusement on Kris' face had all but totally faded, what a boring, dry response. With a slight sigh she looked off to her right at some other group as a girl shouted out about something and stormed off. She gave a shrug and as she heard the small teacher speak up once more she turned her attention back down on the woman. What she saw was Baron impersonating Kris with her hands on her hips.

"You may pat me on the head if you wish. Though I may do the same to you, if I can reach."

Kris blinked as Baron gave her a small smile. "Ha!" Her grin returned as she reached over to pat the woman not-too-roughly but not-too-gently on the head. "Well good luck with that, I've got almost a foot on you." Much of the apprehension Kris had felt from earlier had vanished, at the very least she liked her teacher so far and her mage was quiet, which was fine by her. She spent a brief moment glancing back over her shoulder towards the school before stretching an arm up into the air, wondering how much longer she'd have to be waiting around.

"Tell me, if you would not mind, but what powers, or abilities do you posses? I have read the files provided, though I feel I learn more from you directly."

With a deeply exhaled breath Kris lowered her arms and once again looked down to address Baron. Silently she held out her bare right arm towards the girl as the steely grey of her irises began to tint red. Much like how cracks spread out across glass, from the back of her hand spiderwebbed out crimson lines that looked random at first but quickly began to shape into strange patterns that were undoubtedly magical in origin. The markings traveled up on her arm and to her shoulder before stopping.

"Well, this is probably my most noteworthy ability, I've got markings like this all over my body." As she flexed her hand open and closed one could almost see the heat rising up from her arm. "I can activate these tattoos to dramatically increase my physical performance... Strength, speed, those sorts of things." She began to shake her hand and with that motion the markings began to fade. "It ain't perfect though. Super strength isn't worth much without super strong bones too... If I hit something hard enough without being able to properly reinforce myself I'll just end up shattering my bones... Which is something I'd rather not do, but I will if I have to." With her explanation finished she gave a shrug and rolled her right shoulder a few times.

"After that... Well, I'd rather not show this one. But if you cut me open you're gonna get burned, blood's like fire once it leaves my body." She flexes her hand open and closed a few final times before the markings are fully gone and her eyes are back to their usual color. "And last but most certainly least..." She jabs her thumb pointing up towards her face as her nose twitches and sniffs the air. "I could probably tell you what you had for breakfast by smell. Having a strong sense of smell isn't always the most useful but it comes in handy on occasion."

With that done she cleared her throat and reached a hand up to run her fingers through her hair as she looked up at the sky. It wasn't until now that realized how strange talking so much felt to her, it had been quite a while since she had really had much of a conversation with anyone that wasn't strictly about business. As she looked back down to Earth her hands reached back behind her head and rested there. "So what about you? What sort of tricks do you do?"

A nice gentle breeze blew across the academy ruffling the leaves of a near by tree in the garden and causing a leaf to fly astray and onto Alak's chest. The silver haired demon was laying on top of the small stone hut that sat in the middle of the garden. Alak was usually found here gazing up at the stars at night or watching the clouds during the day. The man also had a little patch of lavender that he adored and took care of everyday. All that time he spent with his precious lavender has caused the light and soft smell to stick to him. Alak barely spent anytime in his room because to him the outdoors was is room and playground.

While he was daydreaming in his resting place a small cute and blue ghostly flame appeared above him swirling around in the air before it spoke in a tiny mischievous voice. " Come on get up master! You don't want to be late do you? " Alak responded to this by closing his eyes and lazily shooing the adorable demon away. " Just a few more minutes, I won't be late." the little ghostly fire crossed it's tiny arms. " Iris will be mad, you don't want her mad at you now do you?" Alak didn't even think about it, he sat straight up fast with his permanent scowl on his face. It wasn't really permanent it's just the way his eyebrows are shaped makes him look as if he's scowling all the time. "Let's go." and with that Alak began to walk towards the entrance gate.

When Alak got to the entrance all the teacher were already there, he gave a small nod to them all as a greeting as he stood there with his arm crossed, scowl and all. He was quiet but the small little fire demon stood on his shoulder in the same pose as Alak was in. "The introduction will be finishing soon and the students should be making their way to us. The headmistress said she would inform us of what exactly the exercise entails once everyone is here. Everyone remember their groups?” the words from Alak's small, adorable fellow teacher reached his ears where he suddenly became all excited on the inside but didn't show it on the outside. He remembered all his students names and faces and to him they seemed as an interesting trio.

"Look, here comes Iris" the little demon spoke pointing towards the direction of the school. Alak raised his head. "Righty-o! Ladies and gents. You know I thought long and hard over this, and I figured a group exercise of this nature was right up the students alley. We need to know what they're made of, who's really in need of help and who's going to be a handful -- you get the idea, With permission from the locals I have set up five loose doppelgängers in the town nearby, with each team expected to handle one between them. You, teachers, will watch over them and see how they handle it. The groups must form a strategy and plan to win. If it seems unlikely they can defeat the creature I expect you to deal with it." letting a very small smile pull at the corners of his mouth, Alak thought, A perfect assignment to see what they are made of.

Alak watched as the students poured out and found their teachers but he was waiting longer than usual for his kids. Finally one of his students came out of the building. Hm, by his appearance he must be the unique Qilin, Makoto. After the young demon came out of the school building another young man walked out but this one had a hood pulled over his head and blond locks peeking out from all sides. Claws... he must be Rabesach Vanafrea. He saw the young blonde demon nod at him and Alak returned the nod with silence. The last to come out was a rather short and fragile looking girl with an eye patch. The mage I see, Raisa Argo Gremory. " Look at what we have here! What an interesting looking group master!" the small wisp interrupted while floating away from Alak and around the group. "Raisa Gremory, present," Alak was snapped out of his glare towards the small demon by the small mage in front of him. " Glad to have you aboard." nodded Alak.

"As you all may know my name is Yureibi Alignak and I will be your teacher. Unlike the rest of the teachers you may call me Alak, I'm personally not a person of formality so please excuse me if I do come off as too comfortable around you all. " he spoke him his oddly deep but calming voice with his arms still crossed and scowl in place. " And I'm Zana! I serve my master Alak!" chimed in the small floating demon. By this time Alak had his eyes closed and the vein on his forehead was popping out, it was fairly easy to say that he was annoyed. With a blink of an eye he quickly grabbed the small demon who sheepishly smiled and escaped through his fingertips like the small ball of flame he was. " Anyway, like I was saying, " Alak shot a glare towards the little blue flame who stuck it's tongue out at him. " Why don't you three tell me more about your powers? I'm very interested in knowing all of your abilities. How about we start with the young miss Raisa?"

The morning so far was going good for Kali. She woke up feeling good, her little sister didn't ambush her yet and her mother had made her breakfast. After she ate the young blonde cautiously looked around the kitchen. " Mum, where is Bunny? Has she woken up yet?" Kali's mother looked at her and smiled as she nodded. " Yes Bunny is awake she was just sitting in the living room playing with her blocks." Kali cautiously got up from her chair in peeked into the livingroom to see it empty. She whipped her head around quickly when she heard small foot steps but found nothing. The young blonde demon quickly ran over to the kitchen table protecting the small plate stacked with her mothers delicious Strawberry jam Scones.

Kali was on high alert, her eyes darted across the room following a quick moving figure that she only saw as a blur from the corner of her eye. There was a thumping on the table and when Kali looked the Scones were all gone "Wha!?" Luckily for her there was one left that she was holding onto for dear life. She quickly scanned the room not seeing the figure anymore and opened her mouth to receive the delicious pastry when all of a sudden there was a small black mass that passed in front of her and when she looked her Scone was gone! Her eyes landed on the small infant that sat on the table eyeing her big sister as she held the last scone in her hand, Strawberry jam on her cheek. " Hey there Bunny," Kali proceeded to tip toe closer to her little sister. " Can I have that back please? "

The 2 year old only looked at her before she gobbled up the pastry and that's when Kali lost it. "Why you little-!" the two began fighting and the infant was winning as she was on Kali's head pulling at her hair. " Kali, stop playing it's time for you to head off now." her mother said as the two spotted in mid fight. Kali huffed and stood up shaking out her hair so it was it's usually messy yet cute hair style. " Alright mum, I'm off." she pecked her mother on the cheek as she spoke before she glared at her little sister who only stuck her tongue out at her. Even after all that though, Kali walked over to her and pecked her forehead and said " I'll miss you both, and I'll visit all the time! Bye bye." as she left the house. Pushing up her red glasses the young demon began her short journey to the academy that she really didn't want to go. She watched the birds fly by and the clouds slowly move from time to time as she walked towards the academy.

Once there, Kali saw that she was actually the very first to be there, she hadn't even paid attention to the clock to notice that she was bloody early. " Damn it, I gots to pay more attention to the time." she cursed under her breath before heading inside and being the very first in the classroom. She sat all the way in the back near the door but soon got bored and pulled out the paper that told her who her teacher was and her teammates. " Hm, they seem interesting enough." she said out loud. Without giving it a second though the girl laid her head on the desk and was knocked out like a light. When Kali came too she sat up and yawned stretching out with a still sleepy look in her eyes. She turned her head towards the door just in time to see the last of the student leaving the classroom, Kali had slept through the whole Introduction!

When realizing this the blonde quickly shot up from her seat and darted out of the class. "Damn it!" Finally reaching outside Kali jogged up to her teacher and other teammates rubbing the back of her head with an apologetic smile on her face. " Sorry I'm late, I fell asleep" she hung her head in shame for a second before picking it back up and pushing up her glasses. " Anyway! Kali Minami at your service! " the young blonde gave a slight salute as she spoke.

Iris silenced herself for a moment or two as she quietly observed the two demons. Clearly, one was easier to get along with than the other, though the headmistress was never one to be beaten down easily.

"Alrighty, you two. Simmer down for a moment." She said as politely as she could, offering a smile as she did so before shifting her hands from her hips. "Takashi, or Saiko, you don't need to worry. I would never harm your... people, and I certainly don't plan to keep you here forever. Just do what you have to do, and I'll do as I have to, ok?"

Once all was said and done the headmistress turned her attention to the many heads that surrounded her. She figured, it was now the time to get the students into action. What fun. Walking over and heaving herself up onto a nearby small wall the woman stood high and proud as she waved her hands in the air to gain everyone's attention. Of course, Iris never struggled to attracted a group, and her students and staff were no different.

"Right everyone, listen up! It is time for your group-exercise to commence!" She snapped suddenly before dropping her arms to her sides "Your exercise will involve each group tackling a doppelgänger which will be located within the town nearby, that I have set up just for you. In order to win you must work as a team, plan ahead, and look-out for one another if you want to actually survive this ordeal. Failure to do so will result in... failure."

Pausing for a brief moment she allowed the information to sink into the students minds, awaiting secretly to see their expressions, before daring to continue, "Your teachers will supervise you and ensure you don't get in way over your heads. This exercise is mainly to see what your made of and show us what sort of students we're working with."

Hopping off the wall and landing squarely on her feet, the headmistress patted herself down before strolling in and amongst the groups of students. A challenging smirk was plastered on her features as she eyed up the youthful stares. Once more her hands returned to their respective place against her hips. "If anyone dares view this as an opportunity to cause hell and step out of line they're be in my office before their feet touch the ground. And no -- that's not a call to action. I do not wish to see anyone in my office at the end of this, understand?"

With friendly warnings and introductions out of the way, Iris casually handed out maps to the teachers, on which marked out the exact location the groups would find their designated doppelgänger. The maps also showed where each other groups would be, and a way leading back to the academy.

"Please do not mistake this exercise as some menial task to do. The doppelgängers can hurt you and will require some brain-power and skill to take down. Teachers will deal with the creature if they're group is unable to defeat it. Do not worry though this will not affect any of your standings here at the academy." She said calmly and clearly for all to hear. "With that said we will begin to head over to the town. Please keep to your groups, do not separate, and do as your teacher says and asks. Bad behavior will not be tolerated."

Turning to her own group Iris motioned with her hand for the trio to follow her. Once it seemed they were moving the headmistress began to lead the way out of the grounds of the academy. She waited until all students and teachers had moved before continuing onwards.

Baron listened keenly to what the young girl had to say about herself. Really, she was truly fascinating, and it always intrigued the mage-demon to learn more about others and their capabilities. As the girl witnessed the fancy patterns move around across the outer surface of Kris, the teacher unknowingly awed ever so slightly. She really was amazed.

"You certainly have quite an array of powers. I am sure you will be quite the asset to this group." She said with a confirming nod to her words. "It should be interesting to watch you in the exercise."

"So what about you? What sort of tricks do you do?"

Baron was a little caught off-guard to the question, taking a moment or so to gather her thoughts before responding with, "I can grant wishes, if you put it that way. Whatever any mage thinks or wishes for, I can make it come to life before they're very eyes. The power itself is limitless and works with good and bad requests. I must admit however that I have not gotten my ability to work with demons for some reason."

Just then another girl arrived. "Sorry I'm late, I fell asleep. Anyway! Kali Minami at your service!"

So this is the other girl. Baron smiled and offered a nod to the blonde student. "Pleasure to meet you kali, you are just in time for the group exercise. By the look of it the entire group is here now." She spoke softly and warmly.

Just then Baron witnessed Iris on-top of a wall of some sort requesting the attention of everyone. Listening to what the women said Baron immediately knew that the exercise was now beginning. Listening further, the mage-demon gave a swift nod as the headmistress came to the end of her words. It is starting now.

Once accepting the map that was given to her Baron promptly glanced over the image and details and made mental notes on all of the important information. She understood where her creature was and how to get to it. Having re-read the map the teacher proceeded to show the map to her students and allowed them to look at it briefly. Of course, the map would be staying with the teacher during the exercise.

"Alright everyone, you heard the headmistress. It is time to begin the exercise, though do not worry as I will be with you the entire time. I will ensure your safety throughout this experience." She said to the three girls and retained the same smile as before. "I will lead you to the area where you will find the doppelgänger and then it is up to you three. Please think ahead and stick together, you will need one another to succeed in this exercise."

With that said Baron began to lead the girls in the direction of the Headmistress, who stood waiting for everyone. Once all groups and teachers were set they began to move onward.

Adrianne watched as each the rest of her team got here. Kali Minami was the only one left that had not arrived yet. When she did arrive, she was a lot cuter than in the picture that was given to her and she had no idea as to why she would be sent to this school for bad behavior. She made a confused face as she looked at the ground.

Suddenly, the headmistress stood on top of one of the gate walls and explained how their exercise was to commence. There was a doppelgänger somewhere in the town. From what it sounded like the teachers were to take them to their specified locations and then they were to deal with the threat accordingly. She then saw the headmistress hand out maps of the town.

Her teacher only showed the map to her briefly, but that was all she needed. She saw all the streets, shops, and buildings in the area where they were supposed to go. She also saw the location of the spot where they were supposed to go. She started to form a 3D version of the map in her head, even though she never saw the heights of the buildings, she had seen the buildings before and was somewhat familiar with the area of town that it was in. She guessed that she would be able to get a vantage point of the enemy if they were able to get on top of one of the nearby buildings. She started to form a strategy, but after every attempt, she realized how utterly hopeless it was. She didn't know the enemy and what powers it had. It might be a doppelgänger, but she didn't know who the doppelgänger was of. If she had that information, she would be able to tell what weaknesses it might have.

Baron lead started to lead them toward the area where the doppelgänger was. Most likely, we're going to fail. I'll still go all out, but the teachers are going to show us that it's a lot harder than we think. They may say it poses a slight challenge but I'm sure it poses a deeper, harder challenge than we expect.

✮ Kris ✮

Wishes huh?... And only for mages?... What a useless ability. Towards the end of their little discussion of her powers with her miniaturized teacher their final member made their belated appearance. She was rather animated, one might even call her cheery as the strange girl dipped her head dramatically before giving the group a salute. A brow arched in curiosity and some small confusion as Kris turned to regard the girl, just like in the picture but perhaps even more so in person, this girl was cute and even reminiscent of someone Kris would have preferred to forget. Regardless she gave the blonde girl a nod and introduced herself in response, "No worries... You probably had the right idea, I'm Kris."

Just then the headmistress called everyone to attention. Conversations were silenced as the crowd turned to face her, Kris crossed her arms and looked up to where Iris stood with only mild interest. They were apparently going to take down a doppelganger as their first exercise, they knew its location but were told nothing else. As Kris' gaze left the headmistress and turned back to her group she wondered, Wonder if either of these guys could even hold their own... I'm not sure what Kali can do but our mage here doesn't strike me as all that capable... And besides that how the hell is this Baron gonna ensure out safety when her power is to grant wishes? She leveled a critical eye down at their teacher for a moment with her brow raised once again before letting out a short sigh.

As they began to walk to their destination Kris would occasionally steal a glance at their mage, she looked to be in thought but she hadn't spoken up once yet, so either she wasn't confident in any of her ideas or she simply had none. Kris usually wasn't one to plan too far ahead but the silence irritated her, it seemed to her that this mage would only be a handicap, that her group was fighting with a man down. Unable to deny the spark of a competitive spirit and pride that came to life inside her she finally spoke up. "Well look, we're lacking a lot of critical information here... Any plan we'd make would be based on a lot of assumptions and well, assumptions and plans tend not to work so well together. Basically the only things we know for sure are where this thing is, and what we're capable of. I'm not sure how strong this thing is but chances are I could beat it to a pulp if I get the chance, alternatively I could chase or lure it somewhere, I'm pretty confident in my speed."

She glanced at her teacher with a smirk and spoke in a manner that was only half-joking, "Of course, our chances would go up if I could get a gun maybe and some knives?" Still smirking she turned to Kali, "But what about you? What are you able to do? Any ideas on how you could handle this creature we're after? Something you're confident about, I don't want anything half-hearted 'cause personally I don't wanna lose to any of those other groups or that headmistress." Kris placed her hands on her hips as awaited her response. She hadn't directed her questions at Adrianne or even looked in her direction all this time, her last statement was just as much for her as it was Kali. If Adrianne had something to add Kris only wanted to hear it if she was confident about it, and from what she had seen so far the girl was anything but confident.

Baron listened and directed her eyes towards Kris as the girl spoke, offering a nod or two here and there. Though she raised an eyebrow towards something in particular the student said. "Of course, our chances would go up if I could get a gun maybe and some knives?" The girl spoke with a smirk, somewhat halfheartedly joking.

Baron shook her head in response. ”Unfortunately, as some would say, you have no chance of that.”

The demon-mage allowed the students to talk amongst themselves for a short while, before the time came as she began leading the young trio away from the academy grounds and progressing towards their desired destination. When passing the headmistress, Baron offered a cheerful wave before the group set out towards the town.

The journey itself wasn't long. Upon arriving at the town Baron immediately directed the girls through the open streets and guided them past a handful of bystanders who went about their daily lives. After a few moments of strolling along the street-ways, the demon-mage lead the group to a secluded area hidden away behind many houses and buildings. Not many townsfolk ventured to this little open patch of land so it was ideal for a group exercise.

Wasting little time, Baron took a step forward before spinning round on her heel and confronted the group. ”I know that you do not want to do badly on this exercise and want to get stuck in, however this creature will take as much thought as skill in-order to be conquered.” She said calmly with an attempt to encourage the group. ”Before you is a doppelgänger, roughly half as strong as the headmistress or less. The creature's only purpose is to defeat you, it is up to you to prevent this from happening. As a team you must work together and look out for one another.”

A short distance from the group a shadowy figure emerged and took shape before them. The doppelgänger, taking on the appearance strikingly similar to that of the headmistress, with the exception of mischievous eyes that gave off the intent to cause harm. The creature stood there waiting, eying up the students in a challenging manner.

Baron stood to the side next a wall, arms crossed, as she watched the three girls. "Be warned. Once you begin to strike the doppelgänger it will immediately do the same. Make sure you are fully prepared.” She advised from her spot near the wall. "You may use the entire area to your advantage. I wish you luck.”

Adrianne watched as Kris said a number of things. Including the question of whether she could have a gun or knives. It seemed intriguing that she needed weapons after she saw her powers, which appeared to be extremely strong. Baron, of course, said no. This was supposed to be a team exercise, not a training session for weapons. This was to showcase her talent, her team's talent. She didn't know much about their powers, but she had an idea of what each of them could do. Soon enough, she was walking with Baron in the direction of their doppelgänger. She was extremely curious to see who it was that the doppelgänger was made after. They saw all the people and she came to an area that she had visited before. A place she found a few beat-up books and some shattered glass bottles once. This place was the area where she was to initiate battle with her doppelgänger.

Baron explained what exactly was happening and she understood. But she stopped thinking when Baron had said that the doppelgänger was made after the image of the headmistress. Wait... WHAT?!?! If it's made after the headmistress... I have no idea what-so-ever of their weaknesses! I don't even know what power it could have! She started to play with her hair and bite her nails in nervousness. This was bad. She had no idea how to attack it. She would have to learn from attacking it. But that would put her teammates at risk. She looked at Kris and Kali. She was scared. This was a situation she didn't predict. She looked around at all the buildings. Then, she stared right into the doppelgänger's eyes. As Baron had said, it was indeed ready to defeat us. It had some kind of murderous intent in its eyes. She thought about this for a second. She looked at Baron in a moment of desperation. "C-Can it talk?" She thought it was a strange question, but she thought it needed to be asked. If it had some sort of intelligence, that would show it wouldn't follow a pattern, but it couldn't... It might follow a pattern. She wondered what pattern it might follow. It was some sort of artificial being. Not an actual person. It had to have weaknesses, but not ones that might be easily spotted. She shook her head as so many thoughts went through her head.

She decided that it would be best if she started off in background because she didn't really have any very good close-range attacks. She was sure Kris would make the first move. Kris had a personality that was of a leader. She would provide the role of fighter. She couldn't remember what abilities Kali had, but she thought she would a striker like Kris... Though, she had no idea. She sighed as she readied her arm, calling forth her weir lights. She sent them in the four corners of the small battlefield. She stared at Kris. "Whenever you're ready to strike, I'm ready."

Kris couldn't help but smirk as she rolled her shoulders and narrowed her eyes at the creature that stood off in the distance. Just like before her eyes began to shift to their dangerous shade of red and the same crimson lines crawled out along her skin and all over her body. With a sigh and look of disappointment she glanced over shoulder at Baron at her reply to her question, "Aw, not even a knife? You know, I could just pick one up from the kitchen or something, I promise I won't use it on any of the people in the Academy."

As Kris began to prepare herself to charge at the doppelganger she heard the timid mage of her group finally speak up. She wasn't exactly sure what the girl was capable but she was definitely wielding some kind of magic, it seemed she was going to try and support Kris from the back. Fine by me... She'd just get in the way if she was up in the fray, hopefully I won't have to worry about protecting her. With a nod as Adrianne announced her readiness Kris replied, "Let's go then."

In an instant Kris took off in a sprint towards the doppelganger at an inhuman speed. The doppelganger of course was ready for this and prepared itself for the demon's onslaught. The distance between them was closed in the blink of an eye before Kris took off into the air to make a leaping attack at the creature. Their bodies collided with a loud thud and the two rolled several feet before they separated, sprawled out on the concrete. Kris quickly rose up to her feet looking only lightly scratched, the doppelganger however rose to its feet looking a little worse for wear after their tussle. Despite this the creature only grinned, unbeknownst to Kris the doppelganger had managed to place its hand over Kris' heart. After giving an inhuman chuckle the creature activated it's imitation of Iris' Heart Break.

Kris' eyes widened as a sharp pain burst in her chest. The color in her eyes began to dissipate rapidly as she fell to her knees clutching her chest. She heaved with each deep and desperate breath of air she took as the tattoos on her body slowly disappeared. She wasn't sure what had happened, she wasn't familiar with the headmistress' powers, maybe she should've asked before but it was a bit too late now. The pain began to turn to numbness and her ears began to ring loudly, pushing all other sounds away into the background. She simply had to hope that Adrianne would be able to do something until Kris could recover, she knew if she had another chance at attacking the creature she could avoid this happening again and likely take it down.

The sun was setting, and darkness washed over the town like a blanket. The normally hushed city was bustling with townspeople running two and fro, searching for something…someone….A petite girl with long lavender hair hid in the growing shadows. The sound of hounds howling in the distance made her bright blue eyes widen in fear. They were coming for her and she didn’t even know what she had done wrong…She couldn’t remember anything passed this morning when she woke up on the apex of Elizabeth street and Belladonna street.

She heard movement behind her and she panicked. Suddenly arms where around her, holding her and keeping her from moving.

“I got the little bitch!” The man holding her yelled has he yanked her hair to keep her under the control. She felt fear bolt through her and she struggled, only to have pain rip though her head as he yanked on her hair again. She screamed and kicked only to be thrown to the ground in the center of the crowd.

She didn’t even have time to defend herself before he towns people started raining blows down on her. She did what she could to cover her head but found it did very little to protect her. She felt her bones breaking and cried out in pain, but to no avail. They were not going to stop until she was dead.

“Please…” She whispered and coughed up blood as she looked up. She saw a painting in the window to her left of a Chinese dragon and reached out to it. She felt power well within her, but she didn’t understand it. Suddenly the drawing came to life. It attacked the town’s people around her and scattered them off, harm clear in its intentions. She didn’t want any more violence….she just wanted to be at peace. As if the dragon understood it nuzzled her then picked her up off the ground.
And then darkness over took her.

She was falling…falling fast and hard. She opened her eyes and realized her dragon was disintegrating, like burning paper. The ground was closing in, and then she was hitting it, hard. She felt more bones shatter and felt mild surprise that she even had any more bones to break. She lost consciousness again, but only for a few more minutes. She heard fighting not far from her and hoped she had made enough noise to have them see her.

"Alrighty, here we go!"

Iris lead the group out of the academy grounds and proceeded to guide them over towards the town. The walk itself wasn't long, and soon enough the four of them were on the towns streets before they knew it. Leading the way through the narrow alleys, the headmistress took the trio to a secluded small patch of ground otherwise abandoned by the townsfolk. It was ideal for their exercise, and sure enough, before them stood the infamous doppleganger.

"Righty-o, there's your target. Any questions?" The woman was all willing to give them any answers they wanted, however everything else was up to them. As she stood calmly beside the three, she looked at them curiously.

"C-Can it talk?"

Baron looked to the young mage and offered a simple shake of her fair-haired head. "No, the creature is incapable of communicating with our language, however that does not mean that it lacks intelligence." She advised the girl, encouraging her in a small way as she offered a reassuring smile. "I am sure you will do well."

"Let's go then." She heard the demon speak, a sign that Kris was ready to begin. Baron made sure to watch the pair carefully, she was truly intrigued to see how they would work together. "Good luck." She quietly mumbled.

Almost instantly, the demon student was already rushing over to face the creature, headstrong and confidently as Baron would expected from Kris, as she kept a watchful eye on the girl. Silently, she stood and witnessed as the demon struck the doppleganger, quite powerfully, as the student and creature fell to the ground hard. Although, her initial awing manner promptly faded the moment she noticed something was wrong with Kris. It didn't take Baron long to conclude that she must have been hit by the attack, Heart Break. It made perfect sense. Practically, almost immediately, Baron was on edge. As of yet she hadn't experienced having injured students under her care. It was certainly a first. As she continued to watch Kris her heart only sank further as she feared for the student.

Quickly she turned to Adrianne and snapped, "Your demon needs you, assist her to the best of your abilities! I know it may seem scary but I know you can help her!" Of course, she would've jumped in herself however this was a student exercise, and she had to see what the mage was capable of. At least for now. Adverting her attention only momentarily, Baron caught a glimpse of something, a girl perhaps, though she didn't seem too good.

"Distract the creature, do something, but make sure to cover Kris whilst she recovers!" The teacher advised, though really it was entirely up to the student to do as they personally saw best. She could only hope things worked out before she would have to step in, if need be. Taking the chance, she moved over to the apparently injured girl, Baron very lightly touched her to check if she was conscious.

"Hello? Can you hear me? Are you alright? What is your name dear girl?" Whilst checking the strange female over, the mage-demon kept a close eye on her students at all times, in-case she would be needed.

"The pain of today…fades with tomorrow… "





"Hello? Can you hear me? Are you alright? What is your name dear girl?" A voice floated to her from afar. It took her a moment to realize it someone questioning her. Darkness was ringing her vision and she wasn’t sure that she hadn’t just hallucinated the voice. She moaned quietly in pain and attempted to force her eyes open. A hand touched her softly and she gasped in pain. Everything hurt! She felt like vomiting the pain was so bad.

‘God just let me die…’ she thought to herself as tears welled in her eyes.
She forced her eyes opened and realized there was a girl standing over her. She stared up at the girl for a moment, though it felt like eternity. She scrutinized the girl through her pain. She looked as though she stood 5'2 or so…but then again she was looking at her from the ground. She had wide orange red eyes and long blond hair….she looked almost…delicate. The irony of thinking such things about the girl as she herself lay fragile and broken on the ground made her almost want to smile…if it didn’t hurt so damn much.

“—Liz—abelle—“ She coughed out, trying to explain she did not know how the whole situation had occurred, only that she had woken up on the cross streets of Elizabeth and Belladonna in a town that couldn’t be far from where they where now. She coughed and more blood spilled from her lips.

She couldn’t seem to form any more words, her tongue was heavy and her lips numb…She was fading fast and she could only hope that death would be sweet relief.





Akiko

"My past is…complicated "




Akiko suddenly felt power that was not hers wash over her. It felt…foreign. She sat up as she felt the animalistic part of her fade, and draw into her. She smiled as she ran her hands through her hair and felt only hair, no furry ears…though secretly she missed them already. She stretched and laid back down, not ready to go back just yet. She closed her eyes and it was not long before she felt herself drifting into the darkness that was sleep.

‘Akiko was walking through her childhood home. She didn’t feel at home here…she had never felt at home here…. Fear. Fear was all she felt. It washed over her in waves. Panic tore at her throat as she realized she couldn’t stop herself from walking forward…She knew where her feet where taking her and she just wanted to close her eyes and run away.

She was suddenly her 15 year old self knocking at her father’s study. She knew she wasn’t going to be able to sway the horrid man’s mind but she wasn’t willing to be sold off like cattle, at least not without a fight. She heard voices hush and the door opened. Akiko bowed to her father though she was terrified. She glanced passed him and saw her soon to be husband. Panic grasped her as she looked back at her father and tried to smile.

‘Never mind, sorry to bother you father’ she said quietly.

‘Nonsense girl!’ her father laughed as she stepped aside and forced her inside.

‘We were just discussing our marriage dear fiancé’ her fiancé said as he leered at her. A shiver working its way up her spine.

‘Father…’ she started, as she tried to gather her courage.

‘Spit it out girl!’ her father snapped.

‘I don’t want to marry!’ she said in a rush. She wasn’t ready to be a bride, a wife, and after that, a mother. She was too young!
Suddenly she was on the ground, pain stinging the left side of her face.
The blow did not come from the direction she was expecting. Her father had had his hand raised but she was knocked to the ground by the man soon to marry her. She stared up in horror at the man who was soon to be her fiancé.

‘Do not speak to your father in such an insolent way!’ he hissed at her. She felt tears sting her eyes as she stood and bowed to them both and ran from the room. She only made it to the back of the house before someone grabbed her arm. She jumped and tried to back away.

‘Shhh…Look…Akiko…I’m sorry, I just…I want to impress your father and...You were being disrespectful.’ He said with small frown. Akiko tried to back away from him unsure of him.

‘Forgive me?’ he begged as he moved closer to her. She felt fear claw at her throat as she realized she was stuck between him and a wall. She jumped as she felt his hand touch her hip and his other grabbed her face.

‘Forgive me…” He said, as he forced her face towards him. She knew what he intended and if she didn’t stop it now all was lost.

‘Yes! Yes I forgive you…’ she said as she tried to pull away panic and bile working their way up her throat. His hand roamed further down and she felt dread in her veins.’


Akiko suddenly woke up suddenly, a fine sheen of sweat on her forehead. She was shaking and breathing hard, fear evident on her face.

“He can’t hurt you any more…He can’t find you…” She said to herself as a slight breeze tugged at her hair…

Adrianne heard her teacher, Baron Weatherbee, give her a reply to her earlier question about the speech of the creature. "No, the creature is incapable of communicating with our language, however that does not mean that it lacks intelligence. I am sure you will do well." She heard this and felt a little discouraged before she saw Kris rush into battle. "Wait!" Those words slipped out of her mouth, she was a little worried what the doppleganger was capable of. She heard rumors about the headmistress and how powerful she was. I need to think of something... I need to think of something! She couldn't come up with an idea, all she did was watch as one of her demons was attacking. She watched with keen eyes. She saw a blur of motion and then saw Kris land. Then she started to fall to the ground as she writhed in pain. She widened her eyes and got really scared. She froze for a moment in complete and utter fear. The doppleganger stared at her. She wanted to run. Then she heard some kind of shout from someone behind her. She turned her head and noticed that it was Ms. Baron. "Your demon needs you, assist her to the best of your abilities! I know it may seem scary but I know you can help her!" This statement brought her back to her state of living again. She's right! I have to do something. I don't know what, but I have to try.

Adrianne ran beside Kris and then it hit her. She examined the scene of Kris's attack in her head again and realized that the doppleganger had made contact with Kris's chest before she fell where she was. She knew this creature's attack now. She gained a little bit of courage and leaned down to Kris. "Kris... I'm going to try to blind it... In that time, could you recover and force another attack?" She didn't wait for an answer because she knew that Kris might've been writhing in pain, but from what she saw earlier, she was determined to complete this challenge as much as she was.

She slowly walked in the doppleganger's direction, walking around them in a circle for a minute. She wasn't extremely athletic, though she was able to perform a number of acrobatic measures that she could use to try to dodge any attacks from the enemy. She started to walk towards the doppleganger when she was hit on the side by something hard and strong. She fell over a little bit from the pain and summoned some of her weir lights to try and find the enemy. She searched in the direction of the attack, but she found nothing. She thought it was odd, but she got up because she didn't have time to search for the attack. She focused only on her target now. She stared into its eyes and continued to walk in a circle, surrounded by weir lights. When she walked behind the doppleganger, it followed her gaze and turned as she walked. When it wasn't facing Kris, she did a front hand-spring to get right in front of the doppleganger. It tried to move away, but it was too late. She had pressed her hand against its face. Cleansing light... I call you forth to blind my enemies eyes that they might not see. A flash of blinding light emanated from her hand as the doppleganger was blinded for the few seconds that she hoped would leave an opening for Kris. "Kris! Now!" She hoped that it was enough time for Kris to slightly recover from the former attack, or else she was in a lot of trouble.

The ringing in Kris' ears wouldn't subside and she hardly had the strength or will to even raise her head to see what was happening. She was doubtful but all she could hope for was Adrianne to do something, anything. The pain and shock that she felt was intense, but she could tell the effects were slowly subsiding. She still wasn't sure what that power even was but one thing -was- certain of now was that she didn't want to cross the real headmistress. Ever.

In the following moments she felt someone approach her side and with no small deal of effort she turned her head just enough to see who it was, it seemed her mage had finally decided to act. Her words were muffled but being so close Kris could just barely make out what it was she was saying. All Kris could manage in reply was a meek nod. She hoped the girl knew what she was doing or that she could at least buy enough time for Kris to recover.

Time crawled by at a snail's pace from this point on as Kris took steady and deep breaths, trying to focus her mind and ignore the stinging pain in her chest that burst out with each heartbeat. Through the ringing in her ears pierced Adrianne's cry and with that Kris summoned forth her last reserves of strength as her eyes lit up red and the symbols on only her right arm ignited. With an astounding lack of grace Kris moved up to her feet and half-stumbled half-ran towards the back of the blinded creature. It was easy, she placed her right hand firmly on the back of the creatures head and placed her right leg in front of the doppelganger's left and in one swift motion used her leg to sweep out the doppelganger's feet and used her arm to violently press and crash the creatures head straight into the ground.

The blow cracked the concrete around the point of impact and as the creature lie motionless blood began to slowly pool around its head. Such an impact would have easily killed any normal person but it was uncertain whether the doppelganger was dead or merely unconscious at this point. Kris of course was also lying on the ground having fallen alongside the doppelganger as part of the attack, the color in her eyes and on her arm swiftly fading as she rolled onto her back, chest heaving up and down with each ragged breath of air she took. "Got'em..."

The pain she was feeling certainly returned after all that exertion but the relief at defeating the creature certainly helped comfort her. Finally after several moments of recovery she began to glance around the area, still on her back, "Where the fuck's Baron?... Go tell her we got the thing so we can get outta here... I'm... Just gonna stay here for a little while longer." She exhaled deeply as she finished speaking and waved her hand for Adrianne to go.

"—Liz—abelle—"

Baron looked to the odd girl was anxious eyes as her orange-y orbs constantly split between the student and her own group. It was quite a predicament that she hadn't expected nor prepared for. What was she to do?

"Please conserve your energy.” She said in a matter-of-fact tone before pulling down her sleeve and wiping away some of the excess blood from the girls lips. "Do not move, Lizabelle. For now just rest and I will help you.”

"Kris! Now!"

Raising her head and tilting her stare sideways the demon-mage heard the voice of Adrianne just then. By the sounds of it the girl must've gathered her courage together and came to the aid of Kris. The pair, perhaps, were actually getting along. From where she was the teacher could only hear a handful of noises that only served to suggest somewhat-vaguely thoughts in her head in regards to the outcome, however she was certain that the students would be successful in whatever way they tackled the creature. Leaping to her feet the teacher felt she had to witness the event herself, which prompted the mage-demon to leave the injured girl only very briefly, as Baron hurried over a bit, just enough, that allowed her to see Kris and Adrianne in action.

Silently she watched as Adrianne faced the creature with her lights, distracting the doppleganger and allowing Kris to deliver the final blow, which the demon did surprisingly despite her injuries prior. Baron was very astounded by her students and how well they had coped with the exercise, so much so a small smile filled her lips slightly. However, her thoughts quickly sprung onto the other girl in her care at that moment, Lizabelle. As far as Baron was aware she wasn't a student at the academy, but it wouldn't serve her conscious well if she left the poor girl. Having little option the mage-demon made the decision to take the female along with her.

"Where the fuck's Baron?... Go tell her we got the thing so we can get outta here... I'm... Just gonna stay here for a little while longer."

"I heard that! Miss Kris watch your language!” The short woman called suddenly, in her commonly sweet voice from where she stood, in a bid to get the students attention. "I am very proud of you both, you did a wonderful job! I knew you could do it," Her eyes shifted between Kris and Adrianne as her smile grew, though that upbeat aura faded just a little as her focus moved onto the strange youth. "Whilst the pair of you were busy dealing with that creature I happened to find a girl, she doesn't look well and I must insist that we bring her with us." It was her responsibility as a teacher to look after the girl, however her own students had been put through enough for one day and Baron felt that it was only right they headed off. "You two should head back to the academy and rest up, you have earned a decent break after that. Can I trust you pair on your own? Now, off you go."

The teacher watched the students carefully as she placed a good deal of trust in both of them. It wasn't often she did such a thing like that. "Oh! Could you find Mr Kurayamiat, if he's there, at the academy and please inform him of what has happened, as I could use someone of his expertise to deal with the girl when I get there."

A moment or two later she watched the girls leave, waving the pair off before Baron immediately returned to the side of the injured girl, before offering her a hand in an attempt to get the girl back onto her feet. It wouldn't be easy by the looks of things but Baron would prevail regardless. "Please try to get up? I will take you to the Survival Kit academy for treatment. If need be I will carry you there, but first you have to get up."

Adrianne watched as Kris struck the final blow on their enemy, the doppleganger. She sighed and sat down on the hard pavement. She wondered what they had to do now. She kept replaying the battle over and over in her head so she could scrounge every single little detail out of the situation and try to learn the most from the experience. She watched as Kris got attacked and figured out that that attack only seemed to work once, because the enemy also took considerable damage from the hit as well. She guessed it was some kind of give ad take spell, one that inflicted damage on the opponent but also inflicted damage on the user as well. The doppleganger probably knew about this, but used it to crush one of the opponents none the less. Adrianne made a note that if she came upon an enemy such as that one, she would make sure that if it used its power, then she would take it out by herself. She could do it, but she wasn't strong enough or confident enough yet. She couldn't actually kill something by herself until she got over her disliking of fighting. She heard Kris say something and then she heard something about Midora, one of the teachers.

She left immediately because there was a girl that needed medical attention and from what she could tell, Midora probably had some sort of healing ability. She rushed out of the area where their battle had ensued and sprinted in the direction she thought where the Academy was. Soon enough though, she got lost. She walked over to a nearby apothecary that sold some kind of medicinal herbs. She walked in and saw a lot of different plants and such. She saw an old lady sitting at what looked like a check-out register. "Hello ma'am. Can you direct me to the location of The Survival Kit Academy?" The old woman looked at her with her wrinkled face and grinned, she was missing a few teeth. "Only if you buy something." Adrianne sighed. "Fine then." She grabbed the closest plant, which looked something like a tulip. She carefully set the plant on the counter. "This one will do." She read the tag on the plant and put the money on the counter. "Now please tell me where the Survival Kit Academy is." The old woman counted the money slower than a turtle, which made Adrianne slightly irritated. The old woman looked up. "Very well. Walk in the opposite direction that you came in here from. Then make a left at the noodle seller on the corner a few streets down. Then just keep walking straight and you'll get there." She sighed. "Thank you. I'll be on my way now." She carried the plant out of the small shop and started walking in the direction of the school.

Just before she reached the corner where the noodle seller was, she heard someone call out to her. "Hey, are you lost? Where's your supervising teacher?" She turned around quickly and saw that it was one of the teachers from before. She smiled slightly. "Oh... My supervising teacher... She sent me to find a teacher named Midora. Do you happen to know where he is? There's a person that needs to be taken care of at the Academy."
