Description

Daniel Libera Alaric
Image
Twenty Seven
Image
Male
Image
Image
A stand - up guy, Daniel's entire life is kingdom-centric. to be honest; he doesn't care who sits in the throne as long as they take care of the people and their assets.
Image
Daniel is a master of the scythe, trained since he was old enough to walk in the ways of reaping. at the age of 12, Daniel recieved his magical tome, a mostly unreadable book with seemingly never - ending pages and only eight spells unlocked. His spells, combined with his masterful reaping skills, makes him a deadly enemy and a choice ally.

So begins...

Leon sat on his throne, looking at the report in his hand. His sword sat beside him, resting at a safe distance. His crown sat on his head of raven hair, tilted in the process of a late night. He read slowly, wishing that he could finally sleep.
"So, you two are the captain of the guard? both of you?" He tilted his head, staring over the page at them "And why shouldn't I have you beheaded?" He tapped his fingers on the arm rest, staring down at the two men. one of them had flowing robes, possibly those of a scholar or mage. The other... the other wore a blindfold over his eyes, as well as a mischievous grin.

Daniel bowed, His scythe's blade cutting into the floor slightly. "Dorian and I are indeed the captain of the guard, perfectly loyal to the Land and its people." He smiled, standing up. "Behead us if you must, but as long as you need someone strong to defend you, we will serve." His scythe's butt whipped out, stopping Dorian's movement when he stepped forward. "Forgive my friend, he's a little hot-headed. Daniel turned sideways to see a girl running towards the private chambers with a pitcher of water.

___


This is the new king? he looks weak. that sword... so weak. Dorian stepped forward, his fists tightening. This man thinks that he can behead me. I'll show him a behea- Daniel's scythe whipped up, crossing Dorian's pectorals. "Ah... yes, I apologize, my lord" Dorian kneeled, putting one fist on the ground and bowing his head. I'll play the obedient sheep for now, Daniel, but at the first sign of weakness, I'm beating him with his spine

Leon shifted in his Throne, staring out at the trio with a frown. "I see, Anastasia, was it? I'm not giving any one of you the job of protecting me, but all three of you shall do so. I expect the three of you to maintain your selves fairly well in this task. Just remember that the kingdom takes priority over my life, as does the life of my heir." He tapped his foot, folding the report. "You three are dismissed, for now"

___


Daniel bowed his head to Leon as a small rune appeared on his hand. the spell flared quietly and disappeared. It appeared against the back of the girl he had seen earlier, fading from sight. Later, my beauty, when the kingdom can wait... He put his scythe in a holster, strapping it onto his back. "Dorian, let's be gone. you too, Miss." He turned and started out of the throne room, his own hands curling into fists.

___


Dorian grinned at the girl once his back was turned. she had a decent way about her, the way she walked. probably a good opponent. Se needs a sword, but she seems to know how to use it. the way her hands rasp inside her gloves, calluses... so she trains with it. this is a good sign. sparring... I could see it in our future He cracked his knuckles and started to follow Daniel. "Won't you join us, Anastasia?"

Leon had just shifted in his throne, the ware from the night already taking a toll on his body. He was tired beyond his years, but persisted as his Heir and her servant walked in to the poorly-lit throne room. "I hope this day finds us all well, Aethyra." he gave a kind, lordly smile as he readjusted himself in his chair. "Is something troubling you on this morning? You seem... drawn..." He drummed his fingers, now fully awake. His heir looked like she needed sleep more than he.

Daniel pulled at the Paige's robe gently, standing outside the exit of the throne room. He bowed slightly, his glistening scythe still strapped to his back. "My name is Daniel. I take it that you're with the new Lord's party?" He held out a hand, giving her a charming smile

Paige felt herself be gently pulled out of the throne room, which she was thankful for. She had no desire for punishment any time soon. Before her stood a young man, a few years older than herself. He was quite handsome in her opinion; semi short hair so pale it seemed to be white and a very noble face. A scythe was attached to his side and she assumed his occupation was guarding the king.

"My name is Daniel. I take it that you're with the new Lord's party?" he said charming, holding out a hand like a man would in front of a noble woman. Paige's disbelieving eyes darted quickly around the room, even looking behind her for someone else but there was only a stone wall. Her eyes returned to his and she smiled, a pretty white little smile, curtsying sightly in her simple white dress.

"Good 'morrow, sir Daniel," Paige said softly, placing her small tender hand in his, "I am Parthenia; or Paige, as most call me." In reguards to his question Paige thought for a moment, then slowly shook her head. "No sir," she answered, the lush brown hair swaying to and fro as shhe shook her head slightly, "I have lived here all my life. I am the servant girl to the Lord and his family and guests."

At this point Paige fully expected Daniel to let go of her hand and walk off with a muttered apology. Guests and those who didn't know the princess often mistook Paige for her. She almost felt bad telling them the truth, but they needed to be set straight or else they'd make fools of themselves, courting a simple servant girl. Of course, that didn't mean that it didn't hurt her feelings. Royal or not, Paige still liked to be acknoledged at the least. She prepared herself for the rejection.

Daniel kissed the girls hand gently, tasting the bathing perfume that was still on the surface of her skin. Her smile enchanted him as no spell in his spell book ever could possibly even hope to. "A very nice name, Parthenia. it reminds me of a sort of flower, or some other natural beauty, quite like the beauty you possess" His Scythe rattled slightly as he stood up. "Have you been out of the castle grounds before? I'm sure that your lord will not mind at the moment."

The color of the pinkest rose spread over Paige's cheeks and she felt her heart flutter as his lips pressed against her hand. The fact that she was not of noble blood seemed not to bother him, or at least if it did, he took care not to show it. "A very nice name, Parthenia. it reminds me of a sort of flower, or some other natural beauty, quite like the beauty you possess."

Paige was in a state of shock and extreme flattery. She was as beautiful as the flowers? Was that what he was saying? Paige had seen flowers quite a few times in her life and thought that nothing could be more beautiful than they. Especially in the blush of spring, when they grew on the hill side west of the kingdom. "T-Thank you, Sir Daniel. I-I am flattered by your words." she said, feeling small butterflies in her stomach.

Though maybe she was over reacting and Paige kept her dignity. But it was very hard to maintain her proper stance as he went on the say, "Have you been out of the castle grounds before? I'm sure that your lord will not mind at the moment." Paige almost leapt at the idea. She loved to go, but knew she could get in trouble. But then again, she was unable to refuse this request as it came from one of the Lord's guests and his own body guard. Smiling, Paige simply nodded her head, leaving her delicate hand in his.

Daniel smiled at the small blush on the Paige's cheeks, still persisting as he stood and pulled her along gently. "I know the feeling of being in a high position, though your blood dictates that you should be kept close to the ground. I was born to the humble lifestyle of being a warrior; a peasant's farm-guard, to be honest. it wasn't until I was twelve that I was revealed to have an affinity for magic. Have you ever seen magic, Miss Parthenia?" He kept is callused hand in hers, stepping onto the rough cobblestone of the ground's paths.

"My nightmares have plagued me once more, my Lord, and they have grown worse. I ask permission to be allowed to descend into the dungeons alone, in order to face what eats at my heart." Aethyra glanced over her shoudler as a man shamlessly flirted with Parthenia, and barely contained a scoff. Men were such predictable, disgusting creatures, and never once had a man made her heart flutter, nor her cheeks tint pink, as the servant girl's did now. It was almost sad how much the girl was affected, but Aethyra chose to ignore them as they left the room. Let her have her happiness, she thought, almost sadly, the girl deserves it after being plagued with a mistress such as I.

Turning back to the Lord, her eyes cold and emotionless once again, she tightened the robe around her and half-smiled, looking haunted as she did so. Smiles were foreign to the Heir, and they did not grace her lips often, for when they did, she seemed to grimace more than grin. "I know it is a strange request, but I must go, and I must be alone, lest I find no answers."

Paige allowed herself to be pulled along, listening to Sir Daniel speak. His story was interesting and inspiring, making her feel rather pathetic. He had fought his way to the top; tooth, claw and nail where as she had remained low. A mere servant who had not the courage or the skills to stand up and fight for herself. Even though Paige dearly wanted to claim that she could fight and even 'defeat' another, she knew she didn't have what it took. She was a servant on the inside and a lady in her heart. But sometimes, Paige knew, a lady needed to be a warrior. In fact, she had made a resolve to learn how to defend herself and others if need be. But so far she had not the time or even the knowledge of how to begin.

Her thoughts were inturepted by a word she knew very well: magic. Magic was something Paige never seemed to be able to forget as it filled her dreams, making them whimsical and lovely. Sometimes, when she awoke, Paige could have sworn that she felt so powerful she could... well, Paige didn't know what she could do, but it was something great. It was always something great. But alas, Paige had never been able to conjour the power she felt she had into really, feisable pwoer she could use. She could only look on in awe and mild longing as others practiced it.

"Yes Sir, but only a small bit." she said, a tiny smile gracing her lips as she felt the cobble stones through her fabric slippers. "The court magician used to preform and once in a while someone could call for me. On my task I would sometimes get to watch from the corner of my eye. It was always spetacular." Paige sighed dreamily, begining to fantasize until one of the rocks poked her foot, tearing from her day dreams.

Leon's head was rocking slightly, his eyes partially shut. he had heard every word his heir spoke; though it sounded far off; distorted by the sleep that called to him. Had he been in any other state of mind, Leon would have said some kind, comforting word to his heir and sent her on her way, but the need of sleep had dulled his senses and judgement. "Do as you wish, My Heir, but hurry back." Somewhere far off, he heard the man from earlier, Daniel, flirting with a girl. Let them have their fun; they deserve it He stood and nodded to his heir before waving her off. He didn't have any other scheduled meetings, but still felt he should take his seat. "Oh, and while you're down there, can you tell the men on duty to bring up that one prisoner? the one not connected to the royal family" he had to ask the man a few questions, and possibly answer a few.

Daniel watched the girl fade off unto dreamland, drifting away from their conversation. she brightened when he mentioned magic, then quickly explained the 'magic' she had once observed "those are simple parlor tricks, miss Paige. real magic is strong and powerful, pure energy of nature and the arcane" He raised two fingers, sending a crackle of blue lightning across them. "would you like to see some real magic, Miss Paige?"

They were out of the castle now, just infront of the gates and standing upon the cobblestone walkway. The sun was slowly being covered with clouds, casting a slight grey shadow over the land. 'It may rain later today,' Paige thought. That was nice; a good rain today meant lovely flowers tomorrow, which made hher quite happy. Paige's eyes lit up and she gasped slightly at the proposition. "Yes!" she exclaimed, then quickly chastized herself for being to foreward. 'Know your place!' she mentally scolded herself, then looked at Daniel. "I mean; yes, please, Sir Daniel. I would love to see magic."

Daniel smiled at the Paige's reaction, his hand arcing with more and more energy. the sun was being overcast, leaving shadows to be cast by the city walls. he leaped up on a wall, standing in front of a garden. here, the flowers were neglected, due to the bed being out of view. He waved his hand and they began to spring to life. birds flew overhead, glowing translucent. they began to sing a calm, beautiful song overhead, circling Daniel and Parthenia.

Parthenia watched in awe, stuned by the beauty. The bird's song was nothing like she'd ever heard and the flowers; oh the flowers! The moment she saw them spring into blood Paige immedieantly went for them, knelting beside the garden that was tended by one of the more careless maids in the kingdom. They had never looked so beautiful before. She tenderly touched one of the more lush roses, running a light finger over the ring of delicate petals carefully. Turning to Daniel she openned her mouth to exclaim how lovely they were, but quickly shut it, knowing she could not thank him with spoken words. All she could do was smile and smile she did; brightly and adoringly.

Anastasia

Anastasia shook her head.

"I can not waste time clashing blades with you - There is much more to be done with the Royal Army - In addition I have quite a force to lead...No time for games." She walked down the steps and towards the exit of the hall. The dark knight's cape flowed heavily behind her as she grew silent. She suddenly stopped in the middle before slightly turning her head in thought. She studied the two for a moment before speaking gently.

"I suggest you prepare youself..." She spoke to all three of them when she said that discreatly saying it because of the "other demon" but mainly of herself. Once she turned her head a dark grin grew, her movement once she started walking was confident. She grasped the handle when arriving at the door slightly freezing at as she pulled it open. The banshee was eager, excited yet patient. She had the chance to seal off the room in ice so thick no one could get out and a eternal freeze would await but there is too much unknown about the two captain of the guards to her and as usual Anastasia remains wise and studious to the situations.

Dorian approached the woman with the claymore from behind. she seemed interesting, so he felt he should test her strength. she did smell like magic, which interested him a little. he had never been one for the arcane arts; men should fight with their fists, because a real man belongs in the fight to begin with. His knuckles were already crackled, and he set a heavy hand on her shoulder "We all wish to do it, you know. Be smart about this; even the strongest armies need allies." He grinned with a grin of blood lust. "even I appreciate sharpness of wit in battle. stupidity will only get you killed"

^_^_^


Daniel finished his performance, bowing to her. The birds faded, and the flowers began to loose her luster; all but a single lily that he plucked. He held out the long-stemmed, white flower and tucked it into her hair. He smiled "you deserve something as lovely as you, Madame Paige." He held out a hand with a charming smile, both of his hands still glowing with residual energy like a recently turned off lightbulb

Paige smiled as he slipped the flower behind her ear, her cheeks colored gracefully. "Thank you, Sir Daniel. I adore your gift, though I am no Madame." she said, her fingertips lightly brushing the lily as if to assure herself it was there and this was not a dream. Suddenly there was a crack of thunder and Paige looked up to see dark, violent clouds covering the sky. "Oh dear," Paige said, watching as a flash of lighting lit up the sky and looking quite uneasy, "We ought to return to the castle. Being caught in a storm like this is a misreable idea."

Daniel nodded to the Paige and turned, heading for the castle again. He himself wanted to be in the midst of the tempest. it was honest beauty. Raw electricity arching through the the clouds, roaring in defiance to the earth, it was beauty. He sighed and looked up at the clouds as the rain began to fall lightly. "After you, miss Parthenia"

Parthenia went inside dantily, followed by Daniel. She turned and was about to say something to him, a word of thanks for his kindness when there came a voice she all too well. "Parthenia! Where are you girl?" It was Ms Hitmit, the self assigned servant master (or mistress). She was the boss of everyone, not by a proper title but because she was the most hardy and expeiranced, having spent most all the years of her life being a servant. Sending a longing look at Daniel she called back, "I'm over here Ms Hitmit!"

"And why aren't you over here instead of over there girl? You were off in the feilds again weren't you? Don't you know you have duties and chores you must do; responsibilities to manage and a kingdom to keep?"

"Yes Ms Hitmit. I'll get back to work again. I'm sorry to disappoint you."

"Sorry? Sorry? You shun your job and all you have to say is that your are sorry? Parthenia, get your tush here this instant! You have too much to do to stand around talking! Don't you know Madame Slenie's baby will be coming soon and she wants you to be there to help deliever it? Honestly, you are so scattered brained, you'd lose your head if it wasn't fasened onto your shoulders..."

The voice was heard fainting through the halls, muttering things like, "I was never this forgetful... And now a lady wants her help delivering a baby! I can't imagine why though... After all, what help is a little servant girl? Kindness and laugher have never birthed a child. I mean, really... the girl has never deliviered a baby on her own before; hers of anothers! Still needs help to do it... It's a good thing I'm here or this would be a mess...!"

Parthenia looked at David sorrowfully, knowing she had in fact spent too much time slacking off and enjoying herself. That was the lfie of a noble woman, not a servant girl. "I'm sorry," she said to Daniel, looking at her feet, "But I have to go now. Thank you for your time. It was lovely." Then, like a will-o-wisp, Paige scamppered off into the dark halls, vanishing as if she was never there to begin with. She was good at that.
