As you turn away its steppes through the glass. This creature is you in every way, with on exception, it is a manifestation of your negative emotions. It will try and hurt you or the Fear embodiment. The thing can use all your spells and its HP and MP are equal to your own at the time you looked into the mirror. once you defeat this creature you are transported to a safe place and the main objective of the job is complete.

Reward: B rank Exp and 10K jewels. If the Embodiment of fear survived all its endevors a bonus B rank of exp is awarded.
This had been something of an interesting decision, perhaps whim was a better description? Regardless the man found himself standing inside someone’s office, a person he’d been assigned to of sorts. Whether he’d consider them a “commanding officer” or not remained to be seen, but he could play the part of subordinate.
Truly, it mattered very little.
He’d gone and mentioned it to Erika, deciding for this reason or another to go through with the idea that played in his head for perhaps the past few months? Really he didn’t keep track of these things, time not really of the essence for the man. Yet here he stood, awaiting some fellow, some “Rasparov” that he couldn’t help calling “Rassy” in his mind. ’I’ll have to be careful not to let that slip out at any point.’ Alongside him stood the very woman he trusted most, at least in terms of also being able to predict her because he trusted Erika just…in a different way. For example: trusting her to do as she pleased and quite likely the unexpected – which he oh so loved. However with Subaru he’d have a reliant companion within the knights, someone he could trust and who could go between the special operations unit and the combat one, the woman securing something of a spot on another squad, but he’d worked a bit of magic on the recruiter and allowed the white-haired warrior to partner up with him. More or less.
There’d been a couple of other checks, but nothing he couldn’t pass thanks to the various lessons his father forced upon him that oddly made a militaristic lifestyle possible. ’Granted that bastard would prefer to see me higher up, but working from the bottom is far more…preferable.’ The notion of using connections to up his place wouldn’t sit well, Faeral preferring to remove himself as far as he could from that man, as well as have the chance to build up a rapport and perhaps be nobody for a while.
It sounded pleasant.
He’d wait, leaning against the desk, ready to stand as soon as someone else entered the office with his pleasant, boyish smile in place. Not quite the lady-killer, but not completely the “new fresh face ready to be mauled first job” either.
