Ryuujin
He was ready to kill something, he honestly was.  Pushing back a strand of his amber gold hair, his eyes surveyed the scene, with a born air of distaste.

The gods had to hate him.

Well... correction, god, singular.

Shifted his black coat over his shoulders, he bemoaned having to wear it, he wanted to rip it off, to reveal his crimson red jacket beneath and black pants and dragon clasp belt.  With shin high boots tipped with silver, and a collar wrapped around his slender throat, he was in a sentence... what every girl was looking at.

And he hated it.

Being a Ten'yo was so not what it was cracked up to be.

"Hey pal," said the Rabii to the youth sitting next to him with amber gold hair. "Why do you look so bummed out? Every man here would like the attention you're getting. I don't have to give the sermon about appreciating what you got do I? Even I'm sick of that one."
15th-Jun-2006 12:46 am (UTC) - Jean
Jean glanced at the man next to him boredly.

"...." He remained silently, looking curiously at the man, senseing something... but was unable to pinpoint.

Instead he shook his head softly in response.

'Ah,' Thought the Rabbi. 'The quiet one' The boy deserved his privacy, the Rabbi knew this, but something was nagging at the back of his mind. There was something he liked about this one. The feeling told him that he could be the answer to his sea serpent problem. The feeling was... divne... god-like. A message.

"Say," he continued, knowing he would have punched himself out if he were in the other man's shoes. "I got a little pest-control problem I gotta take care of tomorrow, and need all the help I can get. Interested? I'm paying and it'll get you away from your fans for a few hours."
15th-Jun-2006 02:17 am (UTC) - Jean
Jean tilted his head curiously.

"...what... kind of pest...?" He asked quietly looking at the man dumbfounded.
16th-Jun-2006 04:14 am (UTC) - Rabbi
"Well," began the Rabbi. "This old lady wanted me to take care of a water snake of some kind..."

"Rabbi," interjected Mendel. "It's against the Bylaws to lie! You know you are taking on a sea serpent."

"JOE!" Called the Rabbi.

Faithful Joe came and quickly cleared the bar infront of the Rabbi. The Rabbi quickly banged his head against the bar, after which joe replaced all the items that were there previously.

"Yes," said the Rabbi through clenched teeth. "As my NEW apprentice, so blatantly put it, the pest is a sea serpent. Full grown. Possibly hungry."

"Still interested?" Irony was thick in the Rabbis voice."
16th-Jun-2006 05:22 am (UTC) - Jean
Jean raised an eyebrow, and cocked his head at the man.

"Well, before your apprentice spoke..." He began softly. He shook his head.
"I wasn't, but since it's a sea serpent... I... kinda am now." He glanced away for a moment, deep in thought, before he shrugged and turned back to the Rabbi.

"... name the time and place."
18th-Jun-2006 03:09 pm (UTC) - Rabbi
'Hmmm,' thought the Rabbi. 'He's crazy.... Excellent.'

"8 AM tomorrow at the docks. I'll have a ship ready to take us out. Don't worry about getting wet either, I have a plan around that."
23rd-Jun-2006 06:29 am (UTC) - Jean
Jean shrugged mildly and turned back to the counter looking idle.

"I don't... mind being wet." He said quietly and nodded.
"I'll be there." He said simply and fell silent wondering if he could bring anyone else...
15th-Jun-2006 01:04 am (UTC) - Tina
What a fascinating place, thought the girl to herself as she made her own way through the streets, the occasional glance she gave to people enough to imply that she had no intention of slowing or halting for any of them. Most people got right out of the way, though the annoyed or confused stares they gave to her were noticeable, she expected such ignorance from the inferiors.

Even before she was told by a higher being of her place as a Ten'yo, she knew that she was far above and beyond the average human. She was, after all, a prodigy. A genius. A gifted mind. Nobility in her own right. She excelled in all mathematics and biology, allowing her to so far be an astonishingly successful Alchemist and potionmaker.

Noting a larger group ahead of her that likely wouldn't notice her in time to step aside, Tina shut her eyes and, with an emanation of magical light, summoned two large, dragonoid wings from the small slits in the back of her outfit. This did catch their attention and by the look on her face they knew well enough to make way. After she passed through, she gave a satisfied "Hmph" to herself. She may be twelve and only stand five foot flat, but she could get people to take notice of her.
15th-Jun-2006 01:10 am (UTC) - Klef
Klef glanced about in a surly manner.

Where the fuck are they?! He thought disgruntled as he stormed through the streets, most people scattered before him and his enraged face, those who didn't do so quickly enough were shoved.

And in his angry rage he let his eyes slip shut with a satisfied smirk as he imagined what he was going to do to his idiot comrades when he got through with them.

Then he slammed into Tina and fell over with a surprised yelp.
15th-Jun-2006 01:24 am (UTC) - Tina
In a tumble of wings, Tina landed uncomfortably on her back and remained there for a few seconds before getting herself up in a fury. She spread her wings out threateningly and stomped a sandalled foot down to the pathway as she glared at the culprit.

"Do you mind where you place your unwanted self as you lumber through the streets, you nay-deserving git?!" she snapped, her violet eyes narrowed tightly into concentrated rage. "You've most likely mixed the fabrics of my clothing with the filth of these streets! Know to keep out of sight when near a presence so much greater than yours!"
15th-Jun-2006 01:27 am (UTC) - Klef
Hold on, did that brat just...?

Shooting to his feet, Klef snarled his anger.

"Why don't you watch where you're going you goddamn brat?" He snapped angrily quickly checking to make sure the hood of his coat properly covered his ears. "And who the hell do you think you are? Royalty?! Well I'll agree to that, you're a Royal pain in the ass!"
15th-Jun-2006 01:41 am (UTC) - Tina
"Such a response I expect from the lower sort," said Tina acidically, snuffing at the man. She put her hands to the two odd buns of hair supported by rings coming from her headband. "The type who quickly resort to cursing or punching, yes. Anyway, I feel like sparing no more of my precious larynx's energy upon unwashed like so, so kindly step aside."
15th-Jun-2006 01:52 am (UTC) - Klef
Klef bit his lower lip and scowled.

She was probably right about the cursing and punching part.

So, he resolved to be immature. Scooping up a clump of dirt from the ground he shot it at her and smiled with satisfaction as it showered over her.

"Stay for the fun you stupid ass, the game's just beginning." He said smirking smugly.
15th-Jun-2006 02:06 am (UTC) - Tina
Shocked and offended, Tina looked down to her dress, which was veiled now in a slightly brownish shade. She looked back up to him, eyes aflame.

"I may be above copying your primal acts, little boy, but I'm quite keen on improving upon them!"

She kneeled down, flexing her dull golden wings as far back as they would go, and then swept them across the ground, sending a cascade of dust and dirt toward him. She had gotten some in her eye, as well, but felt content enough with herself to not feel foolish, and she began rubbing the dust out with a triumphant smirk.
15th-Jun-2006 02:15 am (UTC) - Klef
Klef grinned showing a small bit of fang in his mouth.

"Playing with wind? Please, that is so me element bitch!" He sneered and manipulated the wind around him to block the dust, and instead threw it back at the girl grinning.
15th-Jun-2006 02:28 am (UTC) - Tina
"What-?"

She folded her wings in front of her to protect her, but quite a bit made it to her anyway. Also, the gust caught her and forced her to stagger back a few steps. Slowly, she lowered her wings, the left side of her face coated with dirt.

"...I won't HAVE THIS!" she snapped, balling her hands into fists and pointing both them and her wings sternly to the ground. "I would have let you go just now, if you had simply taken the blow as you deserved, but now you've placed me in a most inescapable situation! No one toys with the greatness of Tina Lante, the most brilliant young mind in all of Alchemy! In fact, I refuse to even touch you. Heji! ...Heji!"

She looked around. The boy had promised to stay within shouting distance, but the passing groups made it difficult to see if he was near or not. After a few moments' pause, she crossed her arms and looked to the man again.

"Hrm... Well, as soon as he arrives, you will see the extent of my influence. I will have you soundly and authoritatively trounced without so much as raising a finger."
23rd-Jun-2006 06:31 am (UTC) - Klef
Klef sneered his triumph, until she opened her mouth again, then he scowled and gritted his pointed teeth looking murderous.

"As I deserve?! WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU ON???" He demanded in an enraged bellow.

"Oh, Tina Lante?" He repeated mockingly. "Oooo, I'm so fuckin' scared now, whatcha gonna do? Pour acid all over me?" He demanded in a misconcept of an Alchemist. Then he rolled his eyes and crossed his arms.

"Heji you're bitch or something? Kid, you're pissing me off, and for the record, you've already 'raised a finger'." He pointed out.
23rd-Jun-2006 07:04 am (UTC) - Tina + Heji
"I did obviously mean 'another' finger," she stated. "And I have yet to raise a finger with intent to trounce. I said that you can be trounced without my raising a finger, not that I wouldn't raise fingers in my effort to otherwise prove my superiority without need of trouncing.

"And you will fear the name Tina Lante, with all of your tiny, unintelligent little heart," she added with narrowed eyes.

Just then, a figure approached from behind her, wrapped partly in a grey cloak with partial black trimmings, and a hood pulled over his eyes. Unlike most figures in cloaks, though, this one appeared somewhat meek, of non-gigantic shoulders, very average build, and standing only six inches taller than the five-foot self-proclaimed Alchemist.

"What is it, Mistress Tina?" he inquired in a naturally soft and airy tone, just a pinch deep, which indicated that he could be a small number of years older than her.
26th-Jun-2006 05:47 am (UTC) - Klef
Klef rolled his eyes.

"I'm so fuckin' scared. If there's one thing I will remember your pansy little name for, it's how fuckin' annoying you were!" He snarled and sneered at the newcomer.

"Another person to trounce, my goddamn lucky day." He said laughing viciously.

(OOC: Sorry that took so long, cya tomorrow for the Social exam. XD)
26th-Jun-2006 03:20 pm (UTC) - Tina + Heji
"...Destroy him," ordered Tina, pointing her finger to the man. Heji took a moment and looked from her, to her finger, to the man. A short moment after looking at the man, he opened his mouth as though to speak... and sneezed.

"Bless you," muttered Tina. "And you still have that cold?"

"Thank you, Mistress, and yes," replied Heji, sniffing once and bunching his cloak tighter around himself. "It's only been three days... I think it's the air up here."

Looking to the man and sniffing again, Heji stepped past Tina and stopped a few moments more.

"...You're angry," he said, "And annoyed, and strongly... ignorant of people's feelings, but you don't want to kill yet. I think you're... more of a talker."
27th-Jun-2006 09:53 pm (UTC) - Klef
"Brilliant asshole. Brilliant." Klef said snidely, his expression a venomous sneer. Then his amused smirk turned into a sinister growl.

"But if you want me to back up my talk then I'll be glad to oblige your nancy ass you-"

"KLEF." The booming yell echoed across the street and Klef froze, his face going white.

"Oh shit." He mumbled.
28th-Jun-2006 05:32 am (UTC) - Tina
"Oh, I think I know that look..." said Tina smugly, looking at the man in a new and apparently darker light. "The little boy named Klef has a master. I should have realized it; such atrocious behaivor could only come from a lowly servant."

Heji remained quiet, his head turned curiously in the direction of the voice.

(Sorry I took so long. Had a busy day. -.-)
29th-Jun-2006 05:00 am (UTC) - Klef & Chicano
Klef sneered at Tina.

"Yeah right, I don't bow to anyone's fuckin' feet, I just have-"

"Gosh darnit Klef I've told you a thousand, if not a million times to watch your dratted language!" Came an exasperated tone as a woman with darkly brilliant emerald hair that reached her knees stormed up. Her dark eyes blazed with frustration as she wore a flowing dress made of violet silk that reaached her ankles yet left her shoulders bare. Klef rolled his eyes.

"Why doncha fuckin' make me bitch."

The silver pole with a large ruby ball in the center at the top of the stave materialized in her hand, and before anyone could move it slammed Klef into the ground. She shook her head.

"I try and I try..." She sighed wistfully, before making the staff vanish and turning to Tina and Heji, she curtsied perfectly, grace in her every movement.

"I apologize for my companion's rude behavior, and I hope he hasn't harmed any of you, especially you, young girl." She said with a gentle smile directed at Tina. "To make up for it, may I be allowed to buy you lunch?"

(OOC: Np, still want me to whisk Tina away? XD)
29th-Jun-2006 06:03 am (UTC) - Tina & Heji
(OoC: Sure, if you can find a clever way to get them apart. XP)

"So you should be," said Tina, looking up at the woman with some indignance. "You should keep a better eye on your servants, you know. Especially ones like this. I suggest keeping him chained in a basement somewhere very odd-smelling for a good few weeks."

Heji continued to look at the woman, though his eyes were still concealled under the hood. He gave a little bow. "...Heji Ta-" he stopped, coughing a couple of times and ending with a sneeze. Keeping the cloak snugly wrapped, he rose fully again. "Heji Tayoma..."

"Oh, and yes, the dinner," Tina said, thinking and looking around once. "...Yes, I suppose dinner would be fine compensation. The fool soiled my clothing, though... Oh well, I'll take your offer. Perhaps it will keep us away from my other associate for a while longer..."
2nd-Jul-2006 06:45 am (UTC) - Klef & Chicano & Aly
Klef who had decided staying close to Chicano was not in the best interest of his health, edged over towards Heji unwittingly.

"Oh, servant? No no no... I beg pardon, Klef is not my servant, he's more of-" What he was precisely was never explained (yet) as there was a sudden "POOF" and a "THWUMP!"

As a form landed on both Heji and Klef alike, the long raven haired individual pushed their absurdly long bangs out of their eyes and glanced up.
"Da-!" The word was not finished as they suddenly poofed again, only... this time taking him, and all he touched with him.

".... oh dear." Chicano murmured. "Poor Aly is having troubles yet again..."
2nd-Jul-2006 06:55 am (UTC) - A very irate Tina
As the three bodies - her servant included - vanished into thin air, Tina stared at the empty space, mouth slightly agape.

"Wh... Heji-k... I mean..." she stammered slightly, blinking once before turning her gaze to the woman, apparently finding her calm demeanor reason enough to suspect her to be the one to blame. "What in Valkyrie's name is your little gaggle playing at?! Do you think you can take me as a fool? Obviously someone has heard of my high position and is making an effort to assassinate me! It seems perfect, yes - my servant being whisked away, my brother nowhere to be seen, but you sorely underestimate me!"

With that, she drew out her weapon - basically a foot-long chain on a handled stick - and held it at the ready, trying to anticipate the woman's next move.
2nd-Jul-2006 07:45 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano glanced at Tina, and shook her head.

That simply won't do.

Summoning her staff again, she snapped it forward and with a twirl, pinned Tina's weapon to the ground with what seemed to be the barest of efforts.

"I apologize but violence isn't the answer to anything... hopefully, and I assure you I do not approve of assasination, well why our companions are busying themselves, shall we not have a bite to eat?" She said cheerfuly, unfazed as she grabbed Tina's arm and began to march off, dragging the girl behind.
2nd-Jul-2006 08:06 am (UTC) - Tina
Able to reach down quickly enough to take her weapon from the ground but decidedly not doing anything with it other than putting it away, yet still at the ready, Tina let herself by dragged by the heels for a moment amid her various protests before finally stepping in time with the woman, pausing and taking a breath to speak.

"I do not approve of this," she stated, as though it weren't obvious enough. "I still demand to know where my servant's gone before I relax my guard around a complete stranger dragging me along the street! In fact, until I know enough about you, evidence suggests that you are a masochist and a pedophile; simply offering me dinner like this... Not to mention a poor decision-maker in selecting a servant."
5th-Jul-2006 03:20 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano smiled heartily at Tina and gave her a motherly pat on the head... while still dragging her.

"You need to eat, my goodness you're so skinny, as for where Klef, Aly and... your companion has gone, I'm not entirely sure. But I'm certain it's somewhere safe!"

~ Somewhere in the middle of someplace very dangerous ~

Surrounded by hundreds of carnivores, Klef turned on Aly and seethed.
"You know what kid? You suck, ASS!"
Aly began crying.

~ Back with Chicano and Tina ~

Chicano laughed delightedly.

"What an odd sense of humor you have, but you are right, I haven't introduced myself! My name is Chicano, I work for Exile Empire as the leader of the Bronze Batallion and am an instructer at the institute." She said cheerfully.
5th-Jul-2006 03:34 am (UTC) - Tina
"I will believe that as soon as I see identification, in triplicate," returned Tina, giving a few vain tugs with her arm in an effort to loosen her grip. "Perhaps them I will honour you with my voluntary presence at this dinner, miss Chicano.

"Skinny?" she echoed after recalling the word. She looked at her arm, and then down at herself. "No, no, I am upon the onset of puberty, I simply haven't grown into myself yet. Actually, I've been told by relatives that I am destined to be a ravishing young woman in due time.

"Hm... Well, you seem like a minor threat anyway, to one such as the brilliant Tina Lante, and my servant can easily take care of himself."

~ In said dangerous place ~

Heji got himself fully to his feet, hood thrown back during the scuffle and revealling light, nearly ice blue eyes and rather long, straight black hair tied back. He glanced around, reasonably tense for the situation, and looked to the recently-introduced third person now sobbing close by.

"Could..." he began, pausing a moment. It only made sense that this was the person that transported them there. "Could you please... take us somewhere else... soon...?"
5th-Jul-2006 03:42 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano smiled and tugged slightly at her lapel, where a pin with a set of golden wings surrounded a ruby droplet with diamonds outlying the edges.

"My badge of the Empire. You might have noticed Klef was wearing one too." She said smiling gently.

"And I'm sure your companion is fine." She said merrily.

~ You know where... ~
(OOC: Should we just post this in another thread?)

Klef began backing up as the monster approached slowly, surrounded them completely.

"FUCK IT ALL ALY YOU STUPID BRAT TELEPORT US NOW!" He yelled sweat running down his side.

Aly cried even more.

(OOC: Here's a pic of Ashura. XD
http://www.fortunecity.es/ilustrado/triunfos/120/IMAGENES/Ashura1g.jpg )
5th-Jul-2006 03:54 am (UTC) - Tina
"Ah... Quite interesting," mentioned Tina, following along more freely than before. "Though after this dinner, I'll need to track my servant down. I suppose he'll come looking for me right away, but I haven't decided on a landmark for both of us to go to. Oh well, it is a small island... or, city-island. Either way, he'll be after us with no delay."

~
(OoC: Sure, but Heji's not much of a topic-starting character. You do it. XP)

"Um..." muttered Heji, glancing around a few times. He glanced to Klef. "If she can't- I mean... he... um... If they can't do it, I could... try to get a path open and we can go... Unless you want to..."
5th-Oct-2006 10:54 pm (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano smiled at Tina and led her to a small restaurant that had a warm and cozy atmosphere.

"Well hopefully it will be soon, it is almost dark." She commented thoughtfully glancing at the sky worriedly.
6th-Oct-2006 12:17 am (UTC) - Tina
"True..." muttered Tina, shaking her grip off finally but following her anyway. The woman seemed too peppy to be a cunning threat even if she were to turn on her. "I don't worry about what I would do for myself if night came and I still hadn't found him or my kin, but really, without me, my servant can hardly stand on his own feet. Hopefully those two he went with will be a help..."
6th-Oct-2006 12:20 am (UTC) - Chicano
Glancing over her shoulder, Chicano gave Tina a mysterious wink.
"Oh if it's nighttime... I assure you, Aly, the boy who they dissappeared with will be plenty of help." She said smiling.
6th-Oct-2006 12:31 am (UTC) - Tina
Tina thought a moment, eyes a little narrowed. She shrugged it off, though, walking to a table and sitting before even glancing at the waiter. She pressed her back against the cushy seat's back, folding her fingers together.
6th-Oct-2006 12:33 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano blinked, then glanced at the stunned waiter and waved nicely before joining Tina at the table.
Shortly afterwards menus were brought, as was the water.

"So, Miss. Lante was it?"
6th-Oct-2006 12:43 am (UTC) - Tina
"Yes," replied Tina, pulling the menu closeby and flipping through the pages every twenty or so seconds, though it seemed amazingly like she was studying every word.
"I'm here on important duty that I'm afraid I can't entrust you the details of. Though on a lesser note, I'm thinking of running for monarch of this city. Is there anything you're busying your life with at the moment?"
6th-Oct-2006 12:49 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano smiled happily.

"That's so ambitious, good for you!" She cried smiling happily.

"Oh, me? Not much, looking for a few runaway children who are under my care, I admit I'm terrible at keeping track of them, they just run off on my constantly." She admitted with a blush.
6th-Oct-2006 12:59 am (UTC) - Tina
"Oh?" Tina replied, tilting her head a little and shutting the last page of the menu. She knew what she wanted. "Do you think they might not like you? Personally I resent my parents, and current 'parent figure'. In fact, I outright left my birthparents one day at nine and haven't looked back since.
6th-Oct-2006 01:00 am (UTC) - Re: Tina
(Gotta go. o-o See ya tomorrow.)
6th-Oct-2006 01:00 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano looked startled.
"I-I hope not!" She said alarmed and looked self doubting.
"Well I am rather strict... perhaps they do hate me..." She said thoughtfully and looked troubled.

"Oh, why on earth?"
6th-Oct-2006 04:32 am (UTC) - Tina
"It isn't unheard-of," Tina warned, sipping her water and beckoning the waitress to come over, not exactly caring if she were busy. "I mean, there are many things one can do to lose a child's respect. Do you think you might have traumatized them? Have they ever seen you engaging in sexual intercourse? That's arguably some of the worst emotional damage you can cause to children, short of heavy abuse, of course - which I also recommend you lessen on if you are doing it."
12th-Oct-2006 10:36 pm (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano stared at Tina as if she had grown a third head.

Which in my opinion wasn't too far off the bat.

Anyway...

Shaking her head violently, Chicano gave Tina her best indignified stare.
"Absolutely not, one, engaging in sexual intercourse is not befit of a soldier still in active duty, two, I would never raise my hand to a child, not only is it unfair and uncessecarily cruel, it is inexcuseably inhumane." She said calmly, and firmly.
13th-Oct-2006 12:11 am (UTC) - Tina
Oh, so she knew her share of vocabulary as well...

"Well, just being sure," said Tina, staring at her utensils and unwrapping them from the napkin. She was annoyed that the waitress hadn't come, probably serving some lesser customer... Oh well, she would sate herself another way for the time being. She unzipped the bag she had placed next to herself, pulling out a chocolate bar and skillfully unwrapping the top of it.
"As for my parents," she began, stopping to take a moderate bite out of the snack. "I one day came to realize their trechary - using my genius to bring fame and fortune to their own miserable lives - and seeing as I could take full care of myself even at that age I left, recruiting those such as my brother and Heji as I went. We're from a land quite a way from here, actually. Do you have any interesting stories?"
13th-Oct-2006 03:43 am (UTC) - Chicano
Chicano stared at the bar, and frowned.
"Miss Tina, I don't think that's appropriate before a meal, surely that sort of thing should be treated as dessert, and not an appetizer." She said in a chastising manner.
13th-Oct-2006 04:36 am (UTC) - Tina
Tina frowned, unhappy that much of what she had just said may not have registered just because of her chocolate bar.

"I eat like this all of the time, and I'm still alive," she said in a way that implied she had gone through this before. "I'm sure that of all people, I know best what I'm able to eat." She absently swayed the bar left and right between two fingers. "If someone can finish dessert aftersupper, why not before if they are so inclined? Besides," she smiled a little smugly and spoke more quietly. "I doubt that chocolate can kill a Ten'yo."
