Leila Vergious • Golden Phoenix • D Rank
Apparently receiving letters was still quite common these days. So at least that didn't change while the poor Eden's mage was dead and buried. While minding her own business and enjoying the beautiful park in Talonia the other day, a white sheet of paper managed to find it's way into her hands. She thought it would be a little bit longer till she would be receiving job contracts again, but she was clearly mistaken. Someone named Lexa wanted her help clearing out hostile beings inside of this fallen apart place. Yes... these ruins again. Leila remembered them very well. She was here once before and it was not exactly the most pleasant of days. It was the very first time she killed someone inside of here... a man who essentially made sure she existed in the form she was in right now. A man who wished to gain control over the Gardens of Eden for himself. A sinful act and in order to fulfill it, he wanted control over her body. And in blind rage, consumed by Aurora's wrath, the girl tore his body into pieces. It has been a while since then. And honestly, she had no desire returning her. But work was still work and she would not avoid helping others just because of these bad memories.
So here she was, in front of the entrance. Or at least once of the many entrances that this place had. Dressed in the usual armor, colored in midnight blue and standing out in this place that was overtaken by the nature. In a sense, she felt like at home here with all the greenery. But her connection to the Gardens was still weak, leaving her mostly dependant on the bow that was adorning her back. It was why she actually asked another someone for help with this specific contract, as it was obvious that there would be combat. That someone was Noheme, her sister. Unfortunately, she was far too busy with her own work to come here and actually help. However, she apparently informed a teammate of hers, someone named Cirven. This man was to help her with this job, make sure the little sister would not get hurt while hunting down whatever was inside of this place. Well, something like that was fine too. After all, she loved meeting new people. And this one would be something special indeed, befriending someone like the moon goddess. In all honestly, she couldn't wait to meet him already!
But she did try her best to be patient, patting the horse that was tied to a nearby half-collapsed column. If there was any bonus to the girl not being able to use most of her magic right now, it was that she had to depend on horses to go around again instead of growing out flowery wings and just soaring in the sky. While something like that felt very refreshing and gave her a big sense of freedom, there was a nostalgic value in riding these majestic beasts. After all, that was how she got around when she was just starting her career as magician in this world, freshly separated from her foster father and alone for everything. With a sigh, she smiled and stretched. It was about time he would show up now.
