a character in “Witch Cocoon”, as played by Aniihya

Description

Name: Ea of Akasia
Age: 222, appears 25-ish, has been queen for nearly 200 years.
Gender: Female
Role/Occupation: Queen/Witch
Appearance: Image
Clothing: Usual clothing is like in the picture, a black miniskirt, a white button down shirt with a black tie, tends to wear thighhighs and flat soled shoes outside of palace or when doing business. On special royal occasions, she wears a black bodysuit like garment and a white hooded robe over it. More casual clothing includes skirts, blouses and cardigans. Beach wear is a blue bikini with a blue choker and a blue short sleeved plush hoodie.
Jewelry: Usually a plain black choker without a pendant, no matter the occasion.
Likes: To spy on the witches to be, cake, meat, tea flavored soda
Dislikes: Prejudice towards all witches (understand some of the concerns though), greedy relatives, smug nobles
Alignment: Neutral Good, stays in power by being popular and favorable.
Personality: Quite level-headed. She tends to consider all possibilities and chooses the ones that result in win-wins and do the least harm. She spoils the witches to be intentionally as it will influence their later personalities for the better. If attacked by someone, she will deal with them based on the type of belligerence (power hungry nobles trying to coup her end up being killed whereas unhappy citizens are immobilized and questioned why they are unhappy to see if a deal can be made). She often treats the witches to be as if they were her daughters (luckily relationships dont switch polarities after transformation).
Background: Ea was the first daughter and second child of Ruskan of Akasia. Her father was a brutal tyrant. When her parents found out she would become a witch, they kept her within palace grounds. While her father treated her well and spoiled her, everyone else only looked down on her. The anger built up in her and she took it out on small animals she could find in the proving grounds. When she turned 16, she transformed into a witch and all of a sudden her anger and hate was gone and she felt compassion and empathy. This made her realize how bad her family was. So she plotted and trained for years, so that she could one day overthrow her father, even if she had to do it alone against everyone else. When she was 23, it was time for her to overthrow her father after he ordered the slaughter of rebelling serfs. Her magic was strong enough to make the guards tremble. When her older brother, the rightful heir to the throne, stood in her way, she offered to spare him if he helped her actively or through inaction, yet her brother attacked her to which she immobilized him and snapped his neck. Of her nine siblings, only two sided with her and the others stood against her. When she finally faced her father, he told her that she would be the downfall of the nation and the system kept it prosperous. She replied to him that only the nobles and the land owners were prosperous while the rest of the country suffered and his end would lead to the end of their suffering. She immobilized him and had him taken to the dungeon where he would await public execution. On the day of her coronation, she proclaimed that she would change the country for the better and the first step towards it would be the execution of a tyrant. Her father was decapitated before the eyes of his former subjects. Soon she eliminated the caste system, outlawed involuntary servitude and slavery, made education a right for all and granted every citizen a plot of land. While things went upward the following years, there was an attempted coup. She spared the lives of the conspirators and sent them to work as farmers hands for five years with the pay farmers hands would earn, so that they would learn the life of the peasant. Then there was unrest because of nobles abuse of power, to which she turned the system into a parliamentary monarchy with her remaining head of government while giving every citizen no matter if man or woman, peasant or merchant, the right to vote a parliament, a council and a provincial governor. The unrest ceased and her popularity rose, but there was still the widespread prejudice towards witches and still undocumented killings of new witches and children destined to be witches. So one day, she outed herself as a witch and banned the killings. Many were at first outraged but then came to believe that with Ea as a good example, not all witches were bad, so local governments began to send witches to her to be checked and tried if they would contribute to society. The evil witches that tried to attack her were overwhelmed by Ea and either killed or exiled. The good witches were offered jobs as teachers, soldiers or even as part of the royal guard. At the time, she also began to seek out the children destined to be witches and took them in for study and mentoring. Over the next 190 years, the nation developed far beyond the other nations and many military campaigns were done to expand the queendom into an empire. Of the other nations, their archaic unjust systems were abolished and adapted to Akasian standards. Now the nation is modern and still prosperous and Ea has lived to be very old, yet through a means of her own research, she has found a way to stay youthful and yearns to live to the ages of fabled sorcerers. Maybe she can manage to be an eternal empress at this rate.

So begins...

Queen Ea
The sky was red. The cries of men were in the air. A battle was seen in a foreign land. Another kingdom had declared war fearing that the witch queen would overthrow their unjust systems that kept aristocrats in power. The witch queen was surrounded by enemy soldiers led by their king. Yet she stood there fearlessly which further drew mockery from the enemy. A group of soldiers attacked, but with a movement of her hand they froze in place. To her only one person needed to die as the others were just pawns. The king moved to attack, but with another movement of the queens hand, his joints began to twist painfully, eventually snapping his neck. "Go on. You are free." She said to the soldiers.

Ea awoke from a dream about a past event. Those were brutal times, but she tried her best to spare those who were forced to fight for their rulers or just got caught in the middle.

She stood up, bathed and got dress. She did her hair and left her room. Outside a butler was already waiting for her. "My queen. It isn't recommended to go outside with bare feet. The stones are hot from the sun." He said. Ea turned to him: "Okay, fetch my sturdy shoes then." Ea returned to her room to put on black socks. Once she came back out, the butler had already fetched the shoes. Unlike her flat shoes, these were metallic armor like shoes with low heels. On warm days, they managed to keep her feet cool and were more comfortable to wear despite being heavier than her other shoes.

"Anything special to do today?" Ea asked the butler. The butler then replied: "We got an emergency request this morning. A citizens daughter is deathly ill and the doctors think it is no normal illness but a curse cast upon her. Also we have diplomats from the Illy islands, an independent state off our coast."

"I will go to the girl at once. And about the diplomats, I hope they are fully aware that if they are trying to barter continued independence, they will have to get rid of archaic unjust systems in their nation like feudalism." Ea said. The butler nodded.

In the main hall, she tended to the cursed girl. Her hair was unnaturally black and her eyelids were darkened. Ea saw immediately that it was a curse. One that was deadly to common folk, but yet the work of a probably rather young evil witch. "This will be easy. I wont need any potions or herbs to lift this curse." Ea said. She put her hands on the girls forehead and closed her eyes. Soon a glow emitted from her hands and the symptoms of the curse had disappeared turning the girls hair brown again and making her look healthy.

Once the girl came to, Ea asked: "Do you know who did this to you?" "It was a woman from my village. Her name is Rana. She used to be so nice. Why would she do this to me?" The girl said. It sounded like a witch someone didn't report, which in the end caused more problems than if they had reported her before she became a witch.

"I will make my way to your village later today and confront this menace." Ea said. "I recommend you stay in the capital for a couple days until you have enough energy for the trip home." The girl nodded.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu was out of bed early and was in town in school uniform showing off her silver bracelet, she had gotten recently. Another girl from her school tripped her as she was walking down the street, to which she scraped her knee. "Witch trash." The girl remarked. Mayu got up in pain and said: "Ow! Bitch." She then mumbled: "I will get you for this."

Mayu noticed her bracelet was missing. It had come off and snapped on the ground as the schoolmate stepped on it. Mayu felt as if she was going to cry. She had just gotten the bracelet and liked it.

Once she made it to the school grounds, she found the girl from before and punched her in the face when she wasn't looking.

However a supervising teacher saw what she did and apprehended her. "I think I need to send you to the queen for a talk. You have been acting worse than usual lately." The teacher said.

Cole Renhedge

Cole heard about the sickened girl, but before anything could be done, he was told that she was taken to Witch Queen.

When he heard it there was nothing he could do, but he still wanted to learn the cause of said disease, and he heard from some gossiping people that sickened girl came from a village, village just east of here.

Cole did not know what caused it, but he wanted to be sure that no one else would suffer, and so he prepared for a quick trip to said mysterious village, whose name he failed to learn.

Raina Crow

Raina second eyes, who happened to be crows watched from above as one student punched another, only to be apprehended by teacher. – Sight that made her laugh for a brief moment, only to stopped abruptly when she noticed that someone is leaving Capital, a young man who she saw once before, she sighed for this time she won’t help him at all.

She watched him making his way through crowds of people, exchanging greeting gestures with traders and town healers. Then she cared no more but focused her sight on rather busy Witch Queen, that she disliked so much…

OOC - So I guess, the outlawed witch is fine, or should I change it? ^^

OOC: A witch is not outlawed if she isn't evil. Just because she isn't under the direct wing of the queen or isn't employed with the government, doesn't mean she is persecuted.

Queen Ea

On her way to meet the diplomats, Ea received a call from the school. "Hello?" Ea said. The teacher on the other line said: "There has been an incident with Mayu again. Should we send her to the palace?" "Do so. I will see her in my office after I talk with some diplomats." Ea replied.

Ea reached her office and received the diplomats from the Illy islands. "Gentlemen. Welcome. Do you wish to drink something? Tea or water?" Ea said. The men seemed to be taken aback or irritated by something about her. "Is something wrong?" Ea asked.

"We expected you to be older and you are very liberally dressed by our cultural standards." One of the men replied. Ea then replied: "I get that a lot. I am actually 222 years old and have ruled this nation for nearly 200 years. And does a miniskirt bother you?"

"Noooo, no. Not at all. We don't want to insult you, Queen Ea or are you more of an empress?" The man said. Ea: "I do not call myself empress because I find it to be unnecessary. There are people who still call me empress since I do have an empire. But please just call me Queen Ea. And have you made up your mind on what to drink?"

Man: "I think we will have tea." Ea got up and poured hot water into two tea cups and put tea bags in them. She then served the tea to the two men. Man: "Why don't you have servants do it?" Ea: "They are not servants, but employees. I pay them and they arent bound to service. I also gave them a worker's union. Also I like to do many things myself around here."

Man: "We aren't familiar with this so called worker's union concept. Perhaps you can enlighten us?" Ea: "A worker's union is an organization where workers can collectively barter conditions of work and improvements to the employee-employer relationship. In some instances it can lead to strikes, if demands aren't a least partially met. Personally, my butlers and maids haven't striked in decades, because I pay them well and can pay them well. You should try it sometime if your nation can get rid of serfdom. The trick is that the employer should make reasonable compromises without completely cheaping out. Raises should at least be adapted to economic inflation and if the employees have grievances about safety hazards, then it is best to listen to these and come up with a solution."

Man: "I see. Well we came here to discuss our status as an independent nation as your nation can probably easily annex ours. What are your conditions for a guaranteed independence?" Ea: "Simple. Get rid of unjust systems like serfdom, give citizens some political power such as an elected national council or parliament and rid your nation of corruption. That means you cannot just enact a law and selectively prosecute opposition. It means annihilate political corruption in your nation. If you can do that, then you have guaranteed independence. If you don't, you either can see yourself be annexed in the near future or can voluntarily join my empire, while still being granted semi-autonomy, because if you cannot create a better society, then I will do it for you and any insurgence will eventually die down due to improved living conditions."

Man: "Kind of harsh. But we will talk to our king tonight and see which option he will take. Will any of these options lead to his abdication?" Ea: "If you end up being forcefully annexed, then he will have to abdicate and eventually be judged upon how bad the injustice on the Illy islands is. If he chooses to voluntarily join, he will have to accept a lower title such as prince or duke and only have limited political power. If he chooses to try to improve conditions in your country, he can stay king and will have more power than when joining my empire, albeit still will have to voluntarily reduce his own power some. I am surprised that he didn't come himself if he is in the capital."

Man: "Understood. I think the king decided to go exploring due to his infatuation with the futuristic nature of your nation. We never though it was possible to travel such a long distance from the coast to the capital in a mere hour or two. At home, we would have needed two or three days for the trip." Ea: "Understandable. If the king would like to meet me, we can maybe meet in the city. I know a couple good places to dine depending on the kings taste."

Man: "Gladly. We will try to convince the king for a meeting with you tomorrow." Ea: "Then I guess this is the end of the discussion. I wish you a good day."

As the diplomats left, they said to each other in their native language: "I like her. Friendly, benevolent, yet powerful and intelligent, despite her very unorthodox nature." "I agree. She might be able to convince the king to a peaceful solution."

Meanwhile elsewhere the Illian king was stuffing his mouth full with crepes. "I have never eaten anything so delicious." He said.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu was picked up by car and taken to the palace. Once at the palace, she walked with the teacher down the long halls to Ea's office. She passed two foreign men, who looked somewhat excited. Then she arrived at the office.

"Take a seat." Ea said to Mayu. Mayu then said: "I didn't start it!" "I said take a seat." Ea said with the same voice. Mayu then sat down.

"Mayu punched a schoolmate in the courtyard. She has been acting up lately." The teacher said. Ea then replied: "I want to hear her side of the story, too." "I was on my way to school, when she tripped me and stepped on my new bracelet, breaking it." Mayu said as she began to sob. "I just wanted to get back at her."

"You should have come to me instead of getting revenge. It is okay to be angry or hate schoolmates for what they do to you. But it doesn't mean you have to harm them. If you came to me, I would have fixed your bracelet and made it stronger so that it wouldn't break so easily. Or I could have made you a new one." Ea said. Mayu replied: "The bullying has gotten worse. They call me "witch trash" and "slut". I wish I could do more than just punch them."

On one side, Ea wanted to let Mayu's anger flow. On the other side, Ea cared dearly for her. "Give it a week and on your birthday, everything will be different. Why don't you take a day off school and go hunt some pidgeons in the proving grounds?"

Mayu got up and fell into Ea's arms crying. "Okay! I will try to." Mayu said. Ea then hugged her and said: "It's okay. Let your emotions flow."

Cole reached village faster than he anticipated, but what he saw was far different from what he hoped for. Village wasn’t in flames, at least that was a good thing, yet all he could find in this place were empty homes…and one weird girl in the middle of a village, near old well.

She smiled at him, but the closer he got to her, the more uneasy he felt thanks to her smile.

Unsure and brushing hair with one hand, he asked…

“Hey, that’s probably stupid question but where are the people who live here?”

She kept on smiling, and with a falsely kind voice that he fell for…

“Oh, they are all inside this old building slightly further from here, just keep going straight…” She replied.

“Alright…” He moved further, but his owl immediately left its favorite place – Cole’s arm, which was very unusual, but he had no time to think about it for suddenly fog surrounded him. Now he could only move towards one place, the said mysterious building girl told him about earlier.

“Did I just failed to notice obvious thing again…” He asked rhetorically, before laughing nervously and deciding to investigate what unfolded before him.

Raina Crow

Witch Queen was once more in a place unreachable by Raina’s crows, but she had such an amazing guest, guest with whom Raina had to play around at least a little, and so Raina put a bit of this and a little of that as a surprise in King’s drink, one that will be a complete mystery until he drinks it.

He will surely enjoy this Capital type of taste. – Is what Raina thought, and cared no more, for something else caught her eye, or rather crow eye.

Her old friend that she barely knew, and who last time acted far too naively ended up acting naïve once more, when he stepped into simple trap set by an inexperienced witch.

So inexperienced, and yet she missed her.

Unsupervised witch surely has a lot of fun, but it’s weird she was so close and yet I missed her until now…

OOC - Kay, good to know, also will there be a group that intervenes with Queens plans, and tries to spread chaos or something? ^^

OOC: Maybe later. Maybe like a rogue nationalist group from the Illy islands who try an attempt on the queens life, because they dont want their nation to be annexed.

Queen Ea

After Mayu had left. Ea summoned a portal to the village where the cursed girl was from. It was like a blue doorway where Ea stepped through. She arrived in an area with thick fog. "What an amateur." Ea said dispelling the fog with a movement over her hand. She saw a man and a girl. She sensed the girl was probably the witch she had to take care of. With another movement of her hand, vines shot out of the ground and bound the young witch. "You have the choice of voluntarily giving yourself up or I will have to incapacitate you and take you with me against your will. Well it is only a choice to take the easy or the hard way." She said to the young witch.

"Are you unharmed?" She called out to the man.

Mayu Avalie

After leaving Ea's office, Mayu went to the proving grounds with a crossbow to find some birds to hunt. She found a large pidgeon. But it took three shots to hit it. "This isn't helping that much." She said. "Maybe I should try to find wild rabbits.

"Keeper"
Just as things seemed to get bad, someone came with help, and that someone was a witch queen herself. Cole watched as she dealt with the culprit, but had to interrupt with one question in mind.

“Did you kill everyone in this village.”

“Of course I did! That’ why I…”

“Ah, you didn’t , so big building houses them right now, thanks!” He interrupted her, and immediately went towards building he wanted to check earlier. Leaving two witches behind, while one was baffled.

“W-what? H-how?”


Raina Crow
Raina watched it all chuckling, though it was a good question – how did that Cole know she lied.

Sadly she had to take a look at someone else who seemed to have decided to hint rabbits near her home, Raina wondered whether to scare her a little or maybe do something else.

Queen Ea

"You will never take me with you!" The witch said and burned the vines. Then attempting to shoot fire at Ea. But no fire came. "Are you out of magic?" Ea said. The other witch then tried to escape, but Ea reacted quickly enough and froze the witch's legs in place. She approached the witch. "I guess we will have to do this the hard way." Ea said. She hit the witch in the stomach with her knee and then hit her head, knocking her unconscious. Ea lifted the witch onto her shoulder and opened a portal. Out came a witch under the queens employment. "Take her to a safe room and keep an eye on her." Ea said as she handed the witch over.

Ea stayed in the village to investigate further. She spotted a crow watching her and gave it a gaze. She knew the crows were acting very suspicious and may be controlled by someone.

OOC: I hope this is okay with you unless you had plans with the village witch.

OOC – Well, it surely cuts out a possibility of Keeper and that witch exchanging words again, but that won’t be a problem, nor it will affect Raina in any way :)

Raina Crow

As it seemed her game was coming to an end, one crow had to leave, Queen had to be left alone but she could watch Cole just for entertainment.

Raina wondered whether he would risk being exposed again, last time it happened Raina learned a fascinating thing about him and now that she thinks about it – it would be best if she was the only one who knows.

Well, its settled then…if his secret is in danger, this time I’ll help him partly with crows annoying dear little Queen…that I hate so much.

"Keeper"

Cole indeed found people inside, most of them in poor shape, but most would be able to survive with just medicine and herbs he knows, most for one would not…old man whose life seemed to be hard under some unknown circumstances.

I should wait for our Queen Ea, she would surely…no, he may die before she arrives.

He sighed, knowing that if any of the villagers realizes what he is about to do, he may be in danger, and if Queen learns about it…there’s no telling what will happen.

Queen Ea

Ea took a look around a village and spotted a larger building the man from before may have possibly went into. She made her way there as the other buildings seemed to bear no souls. However there were pesky crows flying around her and getting in her way. She proceeded to paralyze them one by one. It was very odd behavior on the side of the crows as if someone had commanded them to do this. She began to try to track whether there was a magical influence in the area.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu had gone to her room and turned on the TV. The news was on. They spoke of a law that didn't pass the week before and that the nationalist party that proposed it, wanted to petition it to the queen herself. It was about banning any language that wasn't Akasian in schools.

"Ea would never agree to that." Mayu mumbled. She knew that Ea turned down pretty most anything the nationalist party proposed, despite the nationalist party being a successor to the banned Church of Ea, which deified Ea and committed terrorist attacks against non-Akasians and "heretics". Ea not only banned them, but made it illegal to form a religion that deified her.

Mayu in a way felt bad for Ea, as she had to deal with so many problems.

Finally the crows disappeared and the magic in the air disappeared. Someone had noticed Ea's suspicion. Ea finally could move on to the large building. Once there, she noticed that all the villagers were there and many were in a bad shape yet would survive it. Then she spotted a man giving a deathly ill man a potion of some sort. "What are you doing?" Ea asked as she approached him.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu decided to take a stroll through the city. In town, there were some people eyeing her. There was still some anti-witch sentiment despite Ea being one herself. Or at least there was sentiment towards witch-to-bes as they tended to be trouble makers. Mayu wanted to buy an apple, but the seller gave her a mean tone. A royal witch appeared behind her and said: "If I were you, I'd avoid being hissy. She is only trying to buy something." "It doesn't matter. These young witches tend to steal my wares." The seller said. The witch replied: "She gave you money, right? That isn't stealing." "Sorry. I wasn't thinking right." The man said.

Mayu turned around to thank the witch. It was a witch wearing a sleeveless black turtleneck top, black shorts, black thigh highs, a cape and a hat. She was about ten years Mayu's senior. "Thank you." Mayu said. The witch then replied: "No problem. Witches deserve some dignity, even when they are supposed to be a little rotten before transformation."

Raina now had nothing to do, except watching the kiddo, which was somewhat entertaining as he was discovered with his little potion by Ea.

"Keeper"

Sudden question coming from behind startled Cole, he turned around quickly and stared at the one who asked…Queen Ea.
“Q-queen Ea! That…it’s just something I’ve been given, healer’s potion that can ease the pain and help a bit with what he has.” He nervously looked around, wondering whether escape is a possibility if it ends being a necessity.

Raina Crow
“Now that’s an entertaining sight, I wonder how he will get out of this one…” Raina commented as she watched Cole with his pale expression.

OOC - I hope you don't mind that Mayu did not get the chance to talk with Raina or Cole...

Queen Ea

"A healers potion? Interesting. By the looks of it, it must be rather potent. Would you tell me who you had it from or would you rather keep that a secret? How about I look at the person?" Ea said. She looked at the person and noticed that a curse was receding. "Interesting." She said. She would however need to keep an eye on this Cole guy. Either he got the potion from a witch or sorcerer or he could be an alchemist.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu was walking through town when she suddenly felt weird. Was the transformation already starting or do some symptoms precede the transformation? She had to talk to Ea about it.

“Yes, yes a healers potion!” Cole exclaimed, following her trail of thought bit too vividly. Quickly he regained composure, the one who made this potion was him…and a colleague of his, that he happens trust.

“Well, I’d rather not tell, the one who gave it to me was very…intent on keeping identity a secret..” He sighed, remembering how his friend couldn’t help but comment that one day Cole would be the one to spill beans out.

“Oh, though I doubt it will be enough, the potion I mean – it is very strong, and should deal just fine with weak curse…but if the girl had an innate potential…well…I believe Queen Ea has no need for me telling it.”

Raina Crow

Raina decided to use this small window of opportunity to visit town she known so well from past, she walked and walked taking note of changes that had transpired since the last time she was here – for example there was a new place called Haven’s Smith, not her place but Magical Wonders that happened to be right beside it was an interesting sight as well. Sadly it was closed at the moment.

Magical Wonders, what a terrible name… - she thought, and went further through the town, through the crowds, until she felt a change…

Magic spike, bad news possibly, and I still don’t know how to prevent cocoon phase from ever occurring…

Raina searched for the source, and found it…a girl that she earlier eavesdropped upon when she talked to Queen Ea, though it was brief no one would miss such a light colored hair. Raina simply stared at her, for now not interacting – unless she would be seen.

Queen Ea

"I will accelerate the healing, then." Ea said and held her hands over the man. A white light appeared under her hands and the symptoms quickly faded. "I will have the royal witches and mages take care of the rest. I still have some business to attend to. If you need to go back to the capital, you can go through the portal with me." She opened a blue portal. Over a dozen people came out of the portal, mostly royal witches. Ea waited for the answer of Cole.

Mayu Avalie

Mayu headed back to the palace to seek out Ea. But Ea seemed to be gone on business. She decided to wait, hoping for Ea to come back soon.

OOC: Mayu didn't notice Raina. Maybe have Raina follow her to the palace and accidentally be discovered by Ea.

Watching someone as skilled as Queen herself was an interesting sight to say the least, though Cole was bit worried about what might have happened to that girl from before he.

When asked whether he wants to go back with Queen Ea, he was bit reluctant.

“Well, that would be great, but…you’re a Queen and I’m just...just merchant.” He would go if that had not been a problem - something that only he might see as problem.

Raina Crow

Raina followed girl, wondering why she would go there – only to answer this rather obvious question quickly.

What a dummy I am sometimes, Queen is who this girl wants to see, I’d love to avoid Ea but that girl could use some help…

Conflicted Raina slowly approached girl, knowing that if phase began little can be done, but there’s always something that can be done, yet at the end she spoke nothing, simply stared at her from a smaller distance, too close – for it was closer than the usual safe space that Raina set around the palace to keep avoiding Ea.

"Just come already. I don't believe that I need to be regarded in an excessive manner. I dont like putting myself on a ruler-subject kind of level. Sometimes its nice to be around normal people." Queen Ea said. Ea went through the portal and left it open for Cole to come through.

Ea spotted Mayu in the hallway and a suspicious person near Mayu. She did as if she didn't see the person and would maybe try to surprise them once Cole was through the portal and the portal was sealed.

OOC: Sorry, short post.

OOC - Np, happens :)

Cole Renhedge

Cole should’ve expected this reaction, for he heard a bit about Queen Ea. Meeting her in person was still, quite different than what one could expect. Looking at the portal he took a deep breath and stepped through.

It was a weird feeling, going through it, as if you were nothing for a moment – at least that’s how he felt it. Now he saw Queen Ea once more, and two other…people, one of the two he knew well.

What’s she doing here? Most of the time I see her is outside capital…


Raina Crow

Raina continued to watch girl that seemed to come here in dire need- need that Raina suspects to be cocoon phase. Raina was too focus on girl to notice a small change around her, as if some magic was used – for portal was opened.

I wonder what change will there be with help, I doubt it will be meaningful at all…

Queen Ea/Mayu Avalie

"Is something the matter?" Ea asked Mayu. Mayu then responded: "I am feeling weird, a bit sickly." "Then your transformation may have started earlier. If so, then you will feel tired and eventually fall into a day long slumber. You skin will harden and turn grey. You will look like stone until you hatch into a new, more mature you with potent magical powers."

Mayu was somewhat shocked. Transformation this early? Anyways it would have come sooner or later.

Without turning to her Ea called out Raina: "I know you are there Raina. No need to try hiding. I just want to know what brought you here."

Raina Crow
Raina sighed, for she was discovered. Unhappy, she slowly walked towards the two, or rather three.

Once in front of them, she said…

“Simple, this girl…” She pointed at Mayu, though her stare was focused at Cole.

Cole Renhedge

Seeing familiar face here, and someone who dislikes capital… was a weird sight for Cole. She seemed curious as always, though he didn’t expect her to be interested in this girl, while staring at him.

“Why are you staring at me? Do I have something on my face?” He asked, and just chuckled, constantly trying to avoid staring at the Queen as it seemed.

"Well Mayu, why don't you go to your room and lay in bed. The transformation could start soon. You wont feel anything of it. You will just fall asleep and when you wake up, you will be taller and your chest might be bigger." Ea said to Mayu. Mayu nodded and walked to her room.

"As for you Raina. I guess you still like to spy on people. And I am guessing you are the one with the crows pestering me earlier." Ea said to Raina. "It has been a long time since I have seen you. Why don't you visit me more often?"

Raina Crow

Raina laughed, for it was an incredibly funny, yet sad… that Queen had not realized how much she is despised by Raina.

“Because… I hate you.” She answered.

Then…

“Not only that, I’d rather focus on solution to a problem, that is a part of what I hate, better than wasting time visiting you…” She added.


Cole Renhedge

Cole stared at the two confused, third girl seemed to be leaving after what Queen said, while Raina spoke of hate that she has towards the Queen.

“Right, you two are bit confusing, especially Raina – you’re always confusing.” He muttered.

I'd like to leave these two, but that may end... poorly. - He thought, and stayed.

OOC: The heat wave is killing me. Has been like 105°F (40°C) here for a week now.

Queen Ea/Mayu Avalie

Reacting to Raina's words, Ea said: "Well that is harsh. I believe somewhere deep inside of you, you don't harbor such disdain for me. But anyways, I hope you are staying out of trouble, otherwise I will have to... hehe... capture you. Just because I give witches freedoms doesn't mean I don't keep an eye on them. If you want to stay, you are welcome to stay on palace grounds. I will never hate any of my children and apprentices." It may have been true that Ea may be a little too watchful for some witches comfort, but in her view it was all for good intention as a malaligned witch can be dangerous to normal people.

Mayu meanwhile was in her room and had changed into her nightgown to go to sleep and hope the transformation wouldnt be noticed. Once she laid down, she grew more and more tired and finally fell asleep with her skin slowly turning grey indicating the transformation had begun.

Ea turned to Cole. "Why don't you stay for dinner? Raina can tag along too. I would like to get to know you better. You two can walk the palace grounds or get comfortable in the lounge while I finish some business and put on something more fine." Ea said to Cole and Raina.

Ea went to her office where a representative of parliament was waiting to address her. "My queen, we would like to pass a law banning non-Akasian languages in general education." The man said. Ea responded: "Denied." "But we need..." The man interjected. Ea's voice became louder: "It didn't pass last week and even if it had passed, I would never sign such a law. It endangers national stability and is a profoundly malignant ethnic nationalist move." The man tried to argue with her: "Do not fight me. It wont end for you well and any actions against me from your party can fatally backfire. You are already on a thin line after I banned your church. You are lucky I am not an iron fist ruler otherwise I could turn you to ash in an instant!"

A cold shiver ran down the man's spine. He was very aware of what Ea was capable of and knew she has been very lenient so far. "I understand, my queen. We will not pester you with this petition any further." The man bowed and left hastily.

Ea wondered if what the outcomes would have been had she remained an absolute monarch. Sometimes representatives had no regard for the citizens, stability or social order.

Raina Crow
Raina listened to Ea, all while biting lip and crossing arms, for no matter what Ea says, Raina will dislike her. Sadly now a conflicting situation arose, situation in which all interesting people are gathered in one place, and she was sure that, ifCole were to be invited by Queen to stay, he would never refuse – he’s just terrible at refusing.

In the end she simply stood, waited for what Cole would choose to do, if he stays, she will stay.

Cole Renhedge

Cole was bit surprised that Queen Ea wanted him to stay for dinner, thanks to simple invite questions came to his mind, and one of them was… did she notice? If she did, it would be a matter of minutes before she finds out, he only hoped she did not realize his secret.

“Uh, that’s unexpected, b-but of course I’ll stay if Queen asks to…” He started, and noticed Ea leaving off to somewhere, possibly taking care of another business, he in the meantime… stayed where he was.

He stood there, checking his pockets – supposedly making sure everything is where it should, that he had nothing to worry about, all while he wrestled with possibilities in his mind, unpleasant possible outcomes and then…

Raina poked him, when there was no reaction, she tickled him, and that made now sweaty Cole chuckle.

“You are… just terrible. I know where things are here, so we can just wait at the bench nearby.” Raina grabbed his hand and once more lead the way, like she did when he was saved by her.

Queen Ea

Ea went to her wardrobe and grabbed black shorts, thigh highs and her white hooded robe. After changing, she had the cooks make dinner and had her guests be called into the dining room. Ea checked on Mayu, who was already in a cocoon. She then headed over to where the young witch from the village was being held. The royal witches had fitted her with a choker and a magic neutralizing crystal. It was made to fit comfortably but so that the wearer could remove it, no matter how much strength they used.

"Come. It is dinner time." Ea said to the young witch. The young witch protested: "Give me my magic back. You can't do this. This is inhumane." "I am the queen. I CAN DO IT! Plus as if you are one to speak about being inhumane after you cursed all those people and nearly killed some of them. I am keeping you here under locks under my supervision and the supervision of the royal witches, so that you don't go out harming people. I will keep you here until you are reformed and don't try to fake being good, the crystal tells me when you sincerely have changed." Ea said, she then grabbed the girl by the hand and took her to the dining room.

"It is fine to have you all here for dinner." Ea said.

Some time passed, and after waiting they were invited to another room, for dinner. Raina was happy that waiting ended, but Cole wanted more time for thinking.

Both ended up mildly satisfied at the dinner, Raina thanks to the tremendous amount of food, and Cole who still wanted to consider few things, yet his mind drifted towards food.

Cole Renhedge

“That’s a rare Quishy Sea fish, this is chicken parm… Chilli Crab” he paused, realizing that all he thought now, he also said outloud.

“Uh, forgive me… I have a knack for, well not a knack, but more…”

Raina Crow

“He loves all kinds of food” Raina interjected, smiling lightly, then sighing. She glared at the strange looking fish, covered in something bright, that she never saw before.

“I’ll stick to onion soup, if you have one…” Cole chuckled, and judging by his smug smile… he knew in what this fish was covered.
