PostSubject: Red in the Shadows   Tue Jan 28, 2014 7:36 am

Majesty was... Majestic. The crystalline profit of the city was beautiful, glorious in visage. The light was so obvious here, not only in the refraction from the silver and crystal buildings, but in the faces of the people. Their countenance was wholesome, children's eyes sparkling with mischief as they ran around, playing games. The adults were all rosy cheeked and happy, peacefully trading among the market stalls. Even the drunks were peaceful, loud but in a boisterous, happy way. The taverns were all clean, and there were no slums. Majesty was, in essence, perfect.
Too perfect.
The faction that held Majesty, Concuclare, was the one that met my temporary goal. To destroy the world. Still melded into the environmental shadows, I looked with eyes that were not eyes, absorbing the towns movement. I was fascinated, in truth. The city that was here before Majesty was a slum town, these same citizens mournful and spiteful. But... Staring at them now, you wouldn't be able to tell. They were all well fed, well housed, and everything in between. Bringing myself closer to the Palace, I continued to move from shadow to shadow- staying within the building lines.
And...here we are.
Slowly, I let my torso form, pulling myself together and stepping out of the shadows. Someone started, as I was just a dark and misty figure. When I finally formed, I looked over the man slowly. He was portly, but looked more like a pope than a threat. Turning my head away, I was suddenly glad my visor was on. It dipped to the forehead, the smooth glass-like covering black and glossy over my eyes, but fibrous from the peak of my hairline- leading into two small spikes. My chin was protected, as was my mouth by the fiber-like armor, harder here like plates.
[i]I came here to look... I've been to Dyseria and Bolitaria... Hm....[i]

Zechs recently got back from his seven day mission in the Glacial Lands, and was slowly making his way through the happy crowds of Majesty, carrying the sheaths of Arondight and Clarent over his back, the straps had broken during his mission, his other holding up his mission report. "Mission.. Complete.."

The wind blew away his hood, revealing his bright white hair, catching the attention of the crowds, all whispering his name with smiles and laughs. "The Dragon of Glaciers.. Is that what I am known by?" Zechs dismissed them all and continued forth to deliver his report, and most likely wait for his next mission.

Sliding further out of the shadows, I rubbed the back of my neck and noticed a man- who was being heavily whispered about.
Ah...
My initial surprise at the white was drowned out, and I calmly slid in front of him, 'accidentally' bumping into him.
"Ah! I'm so sorry..."

Zechs was caught off guard by the person that had bumped into him, and looked around a bit, waking up from his half-awake walking, before finally setting his icy gaze at the one who apologized. "Oh, it's not a problem. I was not aware of my surroundings, my apologies."
   Zechs, finally awake, had noticed something was off about the one who confronted him. "Might I ask your name?"

Smiling a wry, crooked smile under my visor, I avoided the question.
"I think you dropped something... Here."
Bending to his right, I picked up the mission paper- Oh?
Memorizing it in a moments glance, I took all of one second to hold it out to the solitary man, who had that icy blight-gaze.

Zechs swiped the paper rather quickly, tucking it away in his coat. "Thank you.." His reply was a rather cold and uninviting tone, matching his general appearance.

Still finding this person a bit odd, he persisted his questions, acknowledging his first being unanswered. "Are you visiting Majesty?"

Again dodging the question, I looked at his broken straps.
"Leather. Half thick. You carry two swords normally?"

Zechs growled internally, and rolled his shoulder that carried the two swords, trying to suppress an irritated look. "Yes, I suppose I do." Zechs answered, growing suspicious. "Do you wear a helmet normally?"

"Ahhh, touche'. Quite fine in not only the blitz between blades, but as well as politics. Sharp tongue. But, yes, I supposed I do."

Smirking, I turned his words against him and relaxed my posture, loosely hanging and staring at him.

"Now then.."

Zechs gave a slight confused expression, keeping his formal stance and icy glare. "Was there something I can help you with?" Zechs adjusted his swords and put them under his arm, keeping them accessible in case of combat.

"Oh, yes, actually."

Letting my visor flow off, I gave him a green-eyed stare. Less over envy, more over playfulness.

"I came to speak with the Leader of Majesty. Regardless of who, or even his race."

Smiling, I played with a shadow that fell from my hair, giving it an ethereal form.

Zechs finally let out a growl, albeit it was fairly low. "I cannot just take a stranger like you to meet him, unless you had previous arrangements." Zechs kept his composure, but failed to conceal his irritation. "If so, I will have to see your papers."

"Oh. Soooo official."

Seeing that I was finally irritating, I offered a sly smile, staring him in the eye... Before disappearing into his swords shadow.

Dangerous, so close to his... I'll have to be very cautious.

Smiling quietly, I condensed myself to the furthest point.

"I am not one for shadow games." Zechs dismissed the nuisance and continued his walk, tying the ends of his sword's straps to his belt, the blades clinging to his side, facing away from the sun. Pestilence.. What did she want with Xixas? Her intentions were not pure, and I am sure she will follow me."

Zechs looked at his rolled up report paper and sighed. "You will have to wait.." Tucking it back in his coat he made a sharp turn into an alleyway.

Now a shadow of the small corner of paper, I was curious. He wasn't headed to the castle, like I was hoping.... No, he was going down a dark alley-way.


the hell?

Zechs stopped abruptly in the alley, pulling out a ration block, unwrapping and taking a bite from it. "You can show yourself, now." Seemingly talking to himself, for there was no one in the alleyway but him, no one in sight, anyway. "I will not attack you if you do."

Frowning, I quietly let my form spread across the shadows of the ground, standing up slowly.

"How did you know?"

Searching his eyes, I saw the reflection of my now curious purple cascade over him. He was very stout, not only in nature but in form. White everything, dappled purple in my eye's light.

Tucking the ration block away in his coat, he shifted his stance into a more formal one. "You wanted to see my leader, so of course you would follow someone like me, who is reporting from a mission." He answered pulling out his report papers. "So tell me, just who are you?"

"Well. You're tactically obvious... And who are you. Eye for an eye."

Stretching, I let my armor flow off of me to stand in leather pants and a shirt.

"My name is Zechs." He answered with a growl, tucking his papers back away as he rested his left hand on one of his sword's hilts. "Now, yours?"

My eyes shot to his hand, and I tensed.

"Don't do it. I flat out am not here for war, but I will fight for my life, Zechs."

Taking a deep breath, I looked at him with deep, ocean blue eyes.

"I am Ayasha."

Zechs was relieved at the compliance of this person, and lifted his hand, but still kept his guard up. "Well then, Ayasha." He turned around and started walking out of the alley. "Enjoy Majesty."

Stepping in front of him via shadows, I put a hand on his chest.

"No. I came to talk to him. I have reasons, Zechs."

Zechs scratched the back of his neck, and gave up with a sigh. "If I accompany you.." He walked past Ayasha, stopping at the edge of the alley. "Come then, let us go."

Stepping, I slowly let the shadows slide over my form and condense into my armor. My visor slipped over my face- showing only the light that betrayed my emotions, emitting from my eyes. Right now, I could tell that they were a steely gray.

"I'm right behind you. Here..."

Quietly, I handed him the steel sword that I could condense.

Not that I can't make more, but, I really don't want to screw up with this..
