Ivan looks at his new companions, taking in everything about them. The female is just a bit taller than him, with red hair that hangs down to the small of her back. Her attire is simple, yet effective, designed for mobility. If Ivan were to guess, she would use a sword style based more on agility than power. Her green eyes reflect the figure of his other companion. The boy is short, and wearing a strange mask on his face. In fact, not a single bit of his skin was showing. His outfit is strange as well, not resembling traditional attire in the slightest. The only feature the boy seems to let people see is his spiky white hair. Suddenly, he spoke. "Well, Ivan. I hope you're not as absent minded on our journey as you were during the morning ceremony. I will not be held back by your incompetence." Ivan became furious. "Who the hell do you think you are?! I'll have you know I'm the best swordsman at my acadamy!" The girl immediately stepped in to interrupt them. "Would you two knock it off! Ivan, we're all the best from the three schools of swordsmanship. That's why they put us on the same team. You would know this if you were paying attention this morning. I guess that means we need to introduce ourselves, too. My name is Kris, and this is Scion. His family came here a few years ago from another country." That explained the clothing, but something about him still bothered Ivan. He put it in the back of his mind, there are still things he needed to discuss with them. "What do you guys think about what happened to Zeal and his team? The Arch-Bishop never said anything about what happened, only that they didn't survive, but they were the best students from the schools last year! There's no way they would have been careless enough to let eachother die..." Kris sighed before turning to look Ivan in the eyes. "Ivan, accidents happen. Chances are, it was something that nobody could foresee, but ass the Arch-Bishop said, we need to put the past behind us. Everybody else will be heading for the temple in Eran to start their pilgrimage, so I think we should head to the temple in Thearall instead, so we can avoid the other groups for a while."
Far from Azaron, in the city of Darril, a cloaked figure moves through the city streets. The people around him are all fools, following the ways of the Arch-Bishop and his Pilgrimage. The figure makes it's way to the temple, to await the first trio to reach the city. Students always went to Eran first, so they would have 6 temples to go through before they made it to Darril, and then another two before they could return to Azaron. For now, the figure would have to continue decieving the temple workers, making them believe he was a faithful servant of their false gods. The time would come when he would make the truth known.
Nicenicenicenice!!! Please continue.
PS: Do you view Kris as an extremely athletic girl or one of those blondes in which everything goes "right" for them?
