Intro

Long ago, a race called human rule over the earth. Their civilization and technological advance were so great that when wars broke out between them it brought the destruction to their own kind safe for a few who escape to live amoung the stars. Years after the falls of humanity, nature began to reclaim itself blend with the left over energies which later called magic. Some magic takes it own shape and sentient that formed the elemental creatures. Some influenced animals, give them new interlect and ability. Two energy in particular blended with the last remaining invention of the human; the AI called LUCIA and LAMIA. Both AI gained great sentient and knowledge and began to spread it toward the animals. Together, the animals and the AI evolved and taking the world like the human once was.  Unfortunately conflix amoung them arises too. LUCIA tried her best to prevent the history to repeat itself and only partually sucess. They've settled with peace treaty but the once united species still splitted into different fraction and hold minor discrimination amoung each other. They need to get over it soon though, for LUCIA foreseeing the great destruction ahead; The human from the star would return and they wouldn't be happy that they've been taken over.They don't want to get their hand dirty and already send some bots with much advance than anything the animal has ever created. so LUCIA decided to find some great warriors who would journey across land to each fraction to ask for allies for the upcoming war. And those great warrior is where you come in.

-------------------------------------

Hello! I rarely begin the roleplay myself but this one been stuck in my head for weeks! I wasn't even sure if people are going to be interested but I didn't ask before hand so this is kind of a gamble here. It was slightly inspired by the old MMO game that's been long close and the new Zelda game(Breath of the wind) that I know nothing about and saw only the trailer and thing it's pretty neat. 

 

Character:

- You are the animal resided in LUCIA's United Capital City of Light. For diversity sake though you have to of different species fraction: The horn/atlers herbivores, the birds, Aquatic creatures, Insects, the cold blood, and two other mammals. You can either just travel here or already resident here since bird.

- There's no specific way that your character have to look like, you can look like human with just few animal parts, look completely like that animal, look humanoid but with animal head, look like mythological creature like Harpys or Naga it's up to you. It also doesn't have to be accurate to specific species and can be a mix and match as long as it's in the same fraction EX: you are a bird person but not of specific species, you can look like eagle but with parrot's feather and owl's horn. or you're of Aquatic fraction and look like a shark person with Angler fish light bolb etc.

- Most of the animal size are similar to human meaning the bug and whale can have equal size however you can be much bigger or much smaller than average like a very tall bug or size accurate bird. It's just not common.

-Your character have to come from different class, there's no specific class and you have to make them up, It's something just to describe what type of warrior/ability your character are/has so it can be either something common like Knight/Archer/Berserker/Mage etc. etc. or something completely make up/not fighting relate like Entertainer, Merchant, Movie director etc. It's just to identifying your character better and you can still have same skill but different class name EX: One character is an archer and the other is a slayer, both are skill with bow and arrow and that's okay.

-You can also don't have to be a warrior and instead be someone who live in those different fraction and will acompany the gang later once they've arrive. Keep in mind though that you'd have to wait until the story progress to that point and you might not have something to do during that. Put [Not a light warrior] somewhere in the form to let me know!

- If your choices of species is ambigious/can be in multiple fraction then feel free to choose which spot you prefer: For example Aquatic insect.

-There will be stereotype of each fraction type bellow but your character doesn't have to follow them

 

Story:

-As mention in the intro, you are the warriors select to journey across land to each fraction to tell them about the upcoming war and ask for allience, along the way you face hardship from the climate, the hostile elemental creatures or bandit as well as some bots that you might meet along the way.

-The RP will begin at the final challenge to determine if you're fitting for this mission or not, you are called to meet each other at LUCIA's Chamber are there's no other instruction.

-  The spot doesn't have  be filled when the RP start

Land of Ice and Fire

While they look traditional and live within the village in the wood their trickcery can go toe to toe with the big army even when lack of any advance resource.

 

 

-Again, you don't have to follow the stereotype of each fraction

The map, it's up to the rper to decided which route to take(Can't split, have to all go together) LAMIA's city is underground therefore it overlapse some lands.

Enemies:

Plant Creatures: Most plant creature as docile as farm animal and more likely to be hunted by you as food than being a threat however, it's possible for them to be hostile in and act of self-defense.

The appearence is also various, it can look like non-humanoid animal or legendaries creature such as dragons.

Bandits Animal: Not all animals are good guy or under law. Some might ambush you during your journey. Most of them might be insect. Be mindful though that some fractuon might not be happy if you use fatal force against them.

Mortimier(19): The young moth prince of the land of ice and fire. Since the queen's fire power if too strong and not fit to travel around outside of the volcano. Mortimier is the one who took most of the action. He's very proper and polite. and try his best to do the right thing. 

The Elite four(all in mid-late 20s): The four greatest avion warrior that works for the sparrow king, Italus(Black eagle), Oswin(Harpy eagle), Friska(Frigate bird) and Conrad(crane), Each of them stuck up in there own way save for Conrad who's just weirdly philosophical and peaceful.

bjective(Will update often to prompt you what you should do/write about):

(Light Warrior OnlyMeet up at the room infront of LUCIA's Chamber, there's no further instruction. So far all of the challenge has been a one on one fight against other competitors. You don't know each other(you might have heard of or them or see them from time to time but never been in combat situation together before)

(Non Light Warrior) Free-style. Perhaps descripe your daily life or having a quest of dealing with crimes or hostile creatures or bot or something slice of life, interact with the NPC of that fraction. anything until you might have stumble upon the warrior once they enter the border.

My name is Valasari, Viking from the Isle of Vanaheim. Home to the sick and elderly dragons who make their final pilgrimage to this sacred land. Not many Vikings have made it past the unblinking Sentinel gaurdians, who have stone-like statue appearances and have the element of surprise upon unsuspecting Vikings. They are actually blind, therefore rely on their hearing & smell. They have better hearing than most dragons because of their blindness.

   ABOUT ME

 

I come from the Isle of Vanaheim. So far, the Sentinels have trusted me enough to live among the poor old dragons on this sacred Island. Of course, my Dragons are with me. They had to prove that they were trustworthy, as well as loyal. I have sadly moved away from Vanheim to live in the School. My goal is to become an Ultimate Dragon Trainer and then go back to Vanaheim!! I wish to see the Sentinels again....someday, after I have achieve my goal.

 

   ABOUT MY DRAGONS

 

I saved Saharii from a devastating situation. Dragon Hunters had caged him, but Hiccup and I rescued him just in time.

Now, Zeena, on the other talon, has a wonderful life, I am making sure of it. I wish to befriend more dragons. I hatched her from an egg and raised her. With some help from Saharii.

 

Join me in my quest to save dragons from scum. And as far as dragons are concerned...I wouldn't trade them for anything.....Would You?

 

Random Note: I'm Dati, btw. I'm in my teens and I'm a weirdo. XD

Funny things

 

I'm NOT clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me. The tables and chairs are bullies and the Wall Gets In The WAY!!

 

 

When someone told me I was in a fantasy, I fell off my Unicorn.

 

Friend: Did you fall?

Me: No, I attacked the floor.

Friend: Backwards?

Me: I'm freakin' talented!!!!!

The morale of this story. Just believe the cold truth that you're a Klutz. 'Cause I sure am.

 

If a robber broke into our house to search for money....I would laugh and search with him.

 

I hate it when people text me and it says "call me". One day, I am going to call someone and say "text me".

 

I can't dance to save my life, but when I step in dog poo, I can moondance better than Michael Jackson. =)

 

 

 

Dad jokes:

 

 Dad lookes at me....."You know hon, I couldn't find a single shoe shop today". I breathe in a sigh of relief, knowing that he won't make a bad joke. Dad: "They only sold them in pairs". I bang my head on the wall.

 

Dad dances around in front of the ATM machine. Me: what are you doing? Dad: Just checking my balance. Me: *walks away to the car*

 

Dad in the morning: You know I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went....then it dawned on me.

 

Dad: Yesterday I ate a clock..it was very time consuming...especially when I went back for seconds!!

 

Dad: What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue? Me: I don't know. Dad: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna. Me: What about the pot of glue? Dad: I knew that you would get stuck on that! Me: OHHHHHHHHHH

 

Dad: Did you hear about the guy in KC who was addicted to brake fluid? Me: No..... Dad: Good news! He can stop at any time.

 

Dad and I were at the store and he picks up the velcro: I wouldn't buy anything with velcro....it's a total rip-off.

 

Mom asks dad at Thanksgiving: How does the turkey smell? Dad: Through its nose, I guess. Me: I'm going to bed.

 

Dad after a nice hot shower: You know..... Me: Here it comes. Dad: Singing in the shower while washing your hair is all good 'till you get soap in your mouth.....it then it just becomes a soap opera....

 

That's All Folks!!

for now.....(evil laugh)

I know it says Squiid invited you, ssh pretend I did, yeah, she's cool, but ssh I invited you..

'Bout me:

Name: Goldenwolfmidna; Goldenwolf; Golden; Midna; etc.

Name IRL: Call me Dave, I respond

Gender/pronouns: Dysphoria, so much dysphoria. Pangender/agender/not cis.  They/them

Favorite Dragon: Skrill, my dear children. Lightning breath and a bad attitude? It's me, dragon-fied!

Favorite color: Orange, probably, then blues

What I'm like: I'm a tired, oftentimes snippy and sarcastic, human. I enjoy art and playing video games. I am extremely passionate about genders and se.xualities, so if you want a long-winded rant about how I'm a human too, PM me and tell me! I'm always happy to explain what it's like being pangendered/agendered and panromantic/ase.xual!

Other crap: I am: panromantic, meaning I can be attracted to people of any and all genders in a romantic sense; I am ase.xual, meaning I am not attracted to people in a se.xual way.

I like to draw, so if you have a request of a dragon for an artist, PM me a picture of a dragon, its backstory, and what you want. If I feel so inclned, I will complete your request.

I am a huge nerd and proud of it. I play D&D soon-to-be three times a week, as a DM one time, a Drow Swashbucker, and a Dragonborn Paladin named Ajoke in the last. Fun fact; Ameme, Ajoke's father, was posessed by Bahamut one time. Bahamut is the D&D Dragon God of Good. 

 

Adopts and OCs:

Flikrr, made by the AMAZING Chamishida!

I looked around, nose in the air. It told me there was boar near. I, fire burning hotly within myself, looked around. Sure enough, fifty paces off, more or less, was a full-grown boar. I was getting rather hungry, and a boar makes a nice meal. I stealthily approched it, thinking of the feast I'd have today.

The boar's head jerked up- great. I must have been too loud. And then I heard it as well: crunching leaves beneath a foot. It was leaf-fall, so this was no big surprise. I lunged at the boar, and it gave a shrill whine of terror before I rammed into it, scorching the fur. Within seconds, it was d'ead. I tore into it, hunger stopping all other thought until I saw a shadow and heard the hushed voices: "Is it real?" "Is that a Coalskin?" "How are we not in Valhalla yet?"

I turned. There was a group of Viking children, watching me. They speak in whispers among themselves, but I hear. I turn to look at them, and the voices fall silent. They look scared, except one. I give a ROAR and the group scatters. Not one, though. She approaches me, and says quitely, "They're not going to hurt you." I look at the Viking. She's nothing special, really. She's just braver than the rest. I like that.

I look at the girl, and think about what I'm doing. I then dip my head, slightly. A respectful bow. I respect bravery, and this child, no less, has stood to a Coalskin. In my opinion, we are the most scary dragons out there. The girl returns the bow, and she begins to walk off, and I follow. 

"You need a name." Her voice cuts the silence of the forest. I look at her. I have a name, but nothing she can pronounce. It's 'Hrrrrr', all long and dragged out, and low, very low, until the end, where it flares up into a high pitch. But this girl doesn't know that. "Flicker? Nah, too generic. Flickrr." I like this new human-name. It cuts the 'e' sound, leaving you with a harsh 'rrr' sound. We walk back, both content walking in silence.

And that's how it's been ever since. Once Holly foud her island, I have stayed to keep it save from all who wish her harm.  I am a guardian, one who will keep this land I call my home. The other dragons, like Birchbark, all accept me as a protecter, and know better than to cross me. I am kept 'in check' by Holly's Groncicles, who I do adore, as they let me run free, so long as no fires start in my wake. Dragons come and go, taken to great beyonds, and although I cannot go on adventures 'round the world, I keep my own world safe, for myself, for Holly, and for the other dragons. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brichbark, made by, again, the amazing Chamishida! Thank you so much, Chamishida!

 Birch was found by Lightning, Holly's Skrill, on a stormy day. The small Sinisterous Woodreaper, being about two months old and having a broken leg, snuggled up with the large Skrill. Holly found them some time later, and saw the leg. She quickly bound it and took the dragon home. A few months later, the small dragon was healed and had the name of Birchbark. Holly set the dragon free but the dragon wouldn't leave. Holly relented and kep the dragon, letting her roam free on the island Holly and her dragons called home. Birchbark si all grown up now, and helps to protect the island.

~~~~~~~~~

Drym, made by the wonderful KasaneLover!

How Holly managed to tame this dragon is beyone her. After Drym had eaten enough of Holly's food, they just decided to follow along after her, and now is one of the dragons of her island.

~~~~~~~~

If you're down here, then know this is a WIP. And it shall continue to be for quite a while.

  Apple has a is a bit of a narcissist and can be a jerk sometimes. He does have a soft side however for his late family and is desperate to find more of his kind.

Done by me.

__________________

Viking:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::..

 

Name: Mychael (pronounced Michael)

 

Nicknames/Title: WIP

 

Gender: Male

 

Age: 19

 

Residence: With Earthguard 

 

PersonalityMichael is always thinking logically and doesn’t understand jokes. He is smart enough to understand them but always takes things literally. For example “Mercy then replied “Hey look Michael’s back!” Not understanding Michael asked “What! What’s on my back?”. Michael prefers to be alone and hates being the center of attention. He is always serious and doesn’t understand why Vikings socialize. Michael isn’t quick to trust people but once you gain his trust he will risk his life to save them. He is very intelligent and thinks outside the box. Not many people want to be his friend because he is so odd. Even though he likes to be alone that doesn’t mean he doesn’t feel sad about it. In fact often he is often depressed that he doesn’t have any friends. Michael is brave though his main weakness is that he has low self esteem. All Michael really needs is a friend he can trust. Michael loves to learn new things and to explore new places. He is more interested in dragons than spending time with Vikings. Michael hates to make speeches and presentations. He loves to teach others and dreams of teaching young Vikings the history of Berk. He is a know it all and often is bullied because of that. Michael keeps a journal of all the dragons he knows about and their stats and it is his most prized possession.

 

HistoryFor unknown reasons Mychael was forced to be a hunter at a young age. He hated hurting dragons but was beaten very badly when he tried freeing a couple. While there each hunter was given a dragon to control and Mychael was given Scuttles. They both were scared but found comfort in each other. Unlike the other hunters, Mychael was very skinny and smart. He was bullied and punched many of times and he knew he had to escape. Then all off a sudden one day he awoke on a shore with Scuttles, surrounding them were a group of vikings and dragons. They didn’t trust him at all at first and when his book on how to kill dragons fell Eslig threatened him with her bow. After a while they trusted him a little and brought him back to their camp (Present RP)

 

Likesdragons, heights, cold, flying, swimming, exploring, learning, teaching, being near people he trusts 

 

Dislikes:  Making speeches, being the center of attention, crazy people, huge dragons, chains, blood, people or dragons hurt, dragon hunters

 

Do you want to reserve a color for your Viking? If Yes, what color? How about Dark Cyan

 

Dragon:.

 

Name: Albatross

 

Gender: Male

 

Species: Shockjaw

 

Age: Broadwing

 

Residence: With Mychael 

 

PersonalityAlbatross is aggressive to anyone he doesn’t trust. Also he loves competition and hates to lose.  Hates taking orders from other dragons or Vikings. Albatross is easily annoyed and super protective. In fact if anyone lays a finger (or Talon) on someone he loves, Albatross will attack to kill. His past was rough and hates most humans. Being easily aggravated many people call him a monster though he is only doing what he was taught. He doesn’t understand how Dragons An day Vikings live in peace

 

HistoryThe day Albatross hatched he was born into captivity. His parents had been killed by hunters and he was a runt and very weak since he had no one to teach him how to fight. He was immediately sent to work in the Arena and was bullied by the bigger dragons. In the arena he was forced to battle against Vikings to train them. After only a few days Albatross learned he had to fend for himself and only worry about himself. As he grew older he became stronger and soon everyone feared him (other dragons in the arena I mean) On night he finally broke free and escaped. As he flew out many dragons roared for him to free them too but he didn’t for Albatross only cared for himself. Knowing the hunters were capturing and killing many dragons a day he set out to seek his revenge by attacking all the other villages not stopping until every Dragon feared him. Though one day when attacking Berk he was injured by their weapons and for years was stranded. Then one day a group of Vikings stumbled apron him and... (will be descided in the RP)

 

Likes: Flying, being alone, Rue, Mychael, being in charge, fighting 

 

Dislikes: Young dragons, hyperness, having others help him, Drift, most dragons and Vikings, chains

 

Pet:. 

 

(Without armor)

(With Armor)

 

 

 

Name: Scuttles

 

Gender: Male

 

Species: Terrible Terror 

 

Age: Teen

 

Residence: With Mychael 

 

Personality: Scuttles is very playful and has a ton of energy. Even with that said, Scuttles still can be calm when needed. He loves to explore new places and meet new dragons. He isn’t very found of people, except for Michael who this little dragon thinks of as his brother. Him and Michael share a close bond even though both of them lost their memories and don’t know why. Scuttles doesn’t have nightmares of his past like his “brother” but still knows his past was awful. He is easily scared but feels safe around larger dragons and Michael. Even though We is easily scared doesn’t mean he will back down on a fight, instead Scuttles loves to fight. Now what Scuttles calls Fighting is more like playing violently or in other words horse playing. He acts like an energetic wolf cub and is loyal like one too. Scuttles will protect those he cares for (even though he might not be able to help that much) even is it means risking his life.

 

HistoryScuttles doesn't remember his past, all he knows is one day he awoke on the shore with a human. Even though neither can remember anything they still feel a deep connection with each other.

 

Likes: Playing, having fun, being around Mychael, being around larger dragons

 

Dislikes: Storms, bossiness, obeying selfish people, being cold

Name: Natharia 

Age: 20

Appearance:

Natharia has ice blue eyes and long rear fangs. From nose to tail tip, she's around 28 ft, however, she'll curl up her body to a reasonable height of 6 ft. On her chest is a symbol that means "Strength".

(Please open up in another tab to enlarge it) 

Species Fraction:

A Naja pallida, Bothriechis schlegelii, Atheris hispida, and Hydrophiinae

Class: Swashbuckler (Rouge/Knight hybrid) 

Skills: 

Natharia is very charismatic, her confidence usually louder than wanted or needed. She's got a sharp mind and drive to be determined at any goal. Relating to natural skills, she's a mix of not only a spitting cobra (meaning she can spit her venom up to ten feet), a sea snake, meaning her venom is highly toxic and can easily blind or k.ill something depending on how much she injects. Long fangs and claws, adept at tracking things. Can see well in the dark. Physically strong, her body is entirely made of muscle. 

Weaknesses: 

Overconfident and can easily said to have a large ego. Natharia, while fast, can only move at quick striking speeds if she builds up her energy. For long points in the day, she's quite content to move slowly, having her body absorb heat to store energy. Venom that she spits out of her fangs can also be easily blocked by body armor around the mouth and eyes. Also, she's long, almost too long. She can get stuck in cracks or stepped on if not careful. 

Weapon:

(Shown in picture) Graphene made sword.

Personality(Optional):

Despite being a sneaky rouge, Natharia likes to draw in large crowds and impress them with venom feats of skill (while also robbing them) and showing off her other bag of tricks. She's very rational, almost to a ruthless level, and it's best she not be around timid or sensitive others, she'd overwhelm them! If their is anything Natharia loves, it's a challenge. big or small, any opportunity she gets to do something worthwhile, she'll take it. She has an unmatched ability to think strategically and hold a long term focus while executing careful steps of devious plans with surprising determination. She'll push her own goals on sheer willpower alone, and she's likely to push other's along with her. At the negotiating table, Natharia is dominate, relentless, and unforgiving. This isn't because she's coldhearted (though she is coldblooded) or vicious per se - it's more of that challenge loving nature she has. She enjoys the battle of wits, no matter the opponent. If there's anyone she respects, it's someone she can appreciate skill wise, and someone who's able to stand up to her intellectually. She has a keen sense of recognizing the skills of others, and can be very observant. However, this doesn't stop her from displaying too much arrogance and condescension. Natharia has a particular skill in calling out others' failures with a chilling degree of insensitivity, whether it be taunting banter or something much worse. She's a true powerhouse, and see's herself as a larger than life being. She's adopted a "fake it til you make it" kind of attitude. 

Brief history:

Nathaira was not born in the capital city, she's from her homeland territory, the village hidden in the woods that only those of Cold Blood can find. She came to the city for economic opportunities, meaning, charm and rob those who suspect nothing. Plus, she was able to get a spot that allowed for perfect sunbathing, so she couldn't complain too much.

Ok this is the other light

Ok this is the other light warrior that's going to join in the gang and because of that I'm going to put out the full form as opposed to other npcs! You might meet the Antler person npc later in the RP tho

EDIT: I can't help myself and fill in another mammal spot now that it's free

 

Name: Asher Maes

Age: 17

Appearence: 

Species Fraction: Other mammal

Class: Con-artist

Skills: 

-Six senses: Good at sensing something be it hidden person or lies

-Nine lives: Passive skill but luck's on her side most of the time, it might be some sort of luck manipulating magic

-Persuasion: Can talk her way out of the difficult situation. ((but also base on lucks))

- Luck manipulation: She can intensify the problability, problem is that she can't control the target nor if that problability is going to be the fortunate or disfortune one.(Can make it so that instead of little thing happen it's big thing happening she just don't know if it's good or bad or if it's going to fall upon her or her friend or the enemy)

- Feline Agility: Always fall on her feet, quick, quiet got high evasion rate.

- Card throw: Can throw the card with much accuracy and in the quick succession but depend on her luck even if it hit the target where she want, the damage's either going to be like normal card, decent, like razor sharp knife, or something so strong it can cut something in half.

-Poker life gamble: Her ultimate technique, the magic she invented. She place five card around the target and it can trapped them within the center. She rolls the dices. It either inflict emerse damage to people inside the trap or inflict back to people outside(her and her friend) ((Just for funsy I'm going to roll them for real if she use this skill XD))

Weapon: Deck of playing cards and dices.

Personality(Optional): Chaotic Good (Sly and cunning, "all for herself kind of" gal but actually loyal to a fault to certain friends. Have good heart just not following the rules)

Brief history: Asher used to be a street child of the capital city, the kind that pickpocketing and con other people. LUCIA's people later found her. Pardon her seeing that she's just a child trying to survive and raise her in the academy. Missing her street life however, she dropped out and start con-ing again but this time with the magic she learn and a better house of her own. Despite this she doesn't entirely cutting her tie with the academy people and therefore joining this recruitment just for the heck of it.

 

Name: Bluefang

Age: 15

Appearence: 

He's a wolf boy.

 

Species Fraction: Other mammal

Class: Paladin

Skills: 

- Blade work/Blade dance: Blue is not extraordinary skilled swordman or the experience one as he only practiced by himself during free time, perhaps it's his bravery and determination mix with the unpredictable formless of his strike (some almost like a dance) that make this a notable skill.

- Blade's fangs/charge: Blue found out that he can created projectile attack from his slashes, the one from his quick slashes will be less poweful than the slow decisive power charge one.

- Determinations: One of Blue's strongest trait, even when he know he have little chance of winning he'd still keep going.

-Paladin's cross(Future skill): Jump and strike both sword down along with the charge magic to the ground to create the large cross that erupted the powerful magic attack from it.

Paladin's light(Future skill): Instead of using his magic for blade's fang or Paladin's cross. Blue can learn to direct all the power to restore his companions instead.

Weapon: Twin sword called Sun swords, the guards are similar to the capital city symbol(actually exactly like in the pic)

Personality(Optional): Neutral good. He's this good will but some one hot temper, stubborn and determine kid.

Brief history: Bluefang was an orphan raise by a couple at the local weapon store. While take it upon himself to take down random bandit at the age of the town, Reggies saw the potential and tell him about the competitions. If there's any reputition about him it would be just the weapon store's kid.

Soon!

Alright! We need to get this RP going soon(or else that would never happen)! I will post Asher's part as a starter guide later today but since we already have the the objective written down on the second post, feel free to post yours right away if you already have the idea! Be sure to read that and the rest of the info especially the one related to your fraction if you're not the light warrior.

Sorry, Piggyxl. It would still be great if you can add the history before you make your debut since depending on whatever it is other character might recognize your char!

And we start----now!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asher

"Oh who would have thought, I arrive on time!"

Asher mused as she poked her head inside the room, she looked down at the invitation again to make sure she got the right place which is something she usually got it wrong no matter how much she's been to this castle. The invitation was being handed out right after they've declared the four winner of third competition who could go on the next round. The first one, they put her into the arena to fight against one of the guard. The second one is the track run with obsticles and traps which reduced the number of the competitors down to 16. The third round they're being arranged into four branches and have one on one fight. Asher won two matches and raise to the top of her branch but she know there's going to be four other winners from each branch she has to compete. However Reggies announced that that was it for this round then he handed out the info for the next one, which said nothing other than for them to meet up today in this particular room inside LUCIA's castle.

The castle was doubled as the academy and therefore Asher knows her way around, thankfully she can't help but feel a little hollow however. Her whole reason of joining this competiotion is because her friend, the top student who's still in this academy, Fa asked her to. Fa was defeat in the final round of her branch against some weird snake lady. By the time Asher learn that her magic user sheep friend didn't get to continue to the next round, she's already won her match. There goes her main motivation but she couldn't just give up now right after coming this far?

Asher hummed. Look around the room once more. She could perhaps get up onto the ceiling and wait there, cats love being on hight places. and it could be amusing if she could surprise the next competitor entering this room.

~Mariposa~

 

​     Mariposa opened her healing bag and began to take out different types of herbs. The poor old woman was not going to suvive much longer. She mixed the herbs with a pestal. SHe added water and grog to it to make it more potent. She laid it on the snake wound. The woman began screaming with pain. Fourmen came and held her down. Mariposa had to quickly rubb the medicine to make it alive, as some would say.

Natharia ~ Swashbuckler

Natharia flicked her tongue as she sunned herself in the rafters of the room, waiting for her next opponent. The magic sheep she fought was tough, she'll give her that, but Natharia gave her enough swipes to remember. Her hood lay flat against her neck, giving her an almost small appearance, though her body was slung across the items holding the roof up. She didn't mind high places, but, the warmth was here, and so here she would stay. She snapped her tail lightly against one of the beams, the sound ricocheting off the walls and ringing slightly in her ear slits. Scents bathed her tongue as something particularly fished had made its way into the room. Cat, the footsteps were light and soft against the floor. She need not roll over and untangle her long body from the rafters just yet. Perhaps they could meet, after all, there was nothing more entertaining then knowing the one you might beat. Some of her most treasured companions were others she had worked and sparred with, quite possibly, this may be one. For reasons unknown to her, she could not quite remember why she had joined this, fathoming that it was the reward of being popular. The rich were paid quite a lot because they were well liked. She ran her claw against her red hide, flicking her tongue disdainfully at the upturned scale from her previous foe. "Woe is me," she said to no one, feigning fake horror.

Asher

Asher's eye flickered and she nearly jumped at the sighted of that very snake lady who apperently got their before her once she gotten on the ceiling. Her eyes couldn't help but momentary turning into slit and she felt the hair on her back stood up a bit, not many has managed to sneak up on her undetected and when they do she doesn't like it. She also doesn't like to show her vulnerability. So she said in evenly tone:

"Oh...It's.......you" Asher doesn't recall any of the name of the other winners. She hope her sound doesn't come out like a hiss because as much as Asher doesn't hold things personal against other competitor, seeing her friend being flung around the arena is kinda effect her judgment a little. "Guess I'm not the only one who like high places"

Natharia ~ Swashbuckler

Natharia rolled her talons lazily, still messing with her upturned scale. "Yes, it is I, and, it is you. High places have sunlight, do you?" she questioned, a large fang slipping from her protective sheath inside her mouth as she grimaced. "Your friend put up a fight, though, after everything we've faced, do you suppose we duel?" Natharia asked, the nictitating membrane casting a dark sheen across her eyes as she stared down at the feline.

Asher and Blue

Asher

Asher sniffed, growing more uncomfortable and irritated with the cold bloo.ded way of speaking. She doesn't appreciated her bringging up Fa like this knowing that the only reason she could be doing this is to try getting under her skin. Still Asher acted out indiferently, shrugging and appear relaxed, playing with the dice between her fingers "I suppose so but who knows, there will be two other coming aren't there? You could lose to the other one before you get to face me"

------------------------------------------

Bluefang

Blue doesn't quite understand why he still have to deliver weapon in the day like this, both Timothy and Borris know what he got to do today and yet Timothy kept yelling. Still bringing up the swords that this is his way of repaying. By the time Bluefang done the last delivery of the day, there're only little time left and he has to run all the way from the other side of the capital city, cursing along the way.

Natharia ~ Swashbuckler

She curled her tail over her body, srunching up her nose in a jest. "Light is a fickle thing, is it not?" she hung one of her arms over the rafters, letting it dangle in the air. The membrane in her eye cast itself once more as she stared lazily at the feline. "The more the merrier. The town will sing the tale, Natharia versus the light!" Natharia announced, clutching her dangling talons in a fist and jabbing at nothing. "Forgive me, am I too bold in my claims?" she joked, giving the feline a toothy grin.

Asher and Blue

"Honestly lady, you're not making much sense, have you consider being a poet?" Asher grinned back, her ear flickered. Right then a door open and the third warrior spilled forward. bring any tension to the pause

"Do I make it in time!?" The guy shouted. He looks young with canine feature and bright blue hair, the hair Asher recall seeing as one of the guy who made it to the final round. He's noticably different though, this time equip with proper armor and equipment instead of the worn out, novice clothing he wore during all those rounds.

"Eh? don't tell me I'm the first one here? wait they could also be leaving already since I took so long..."

At first Asher was confused, then realized that the boy must not have seen them yet since both of them are hanging out up here. His rambling is kind of amusing so much Asher looked up at the snake lady wondering if she shares the same thought.
