Gate Key: Lepus The Hare(Celestial Wizard’s Only)
Note: Celestial wizards ONLY receive the gate key, they do not get extra spell slots to use it if theirs are full nor can they turn it into anything above a weak combat pet without paying for it themselves, this key is of no monetary value nor does it offer any power boosts on it’s own, this is just an interesting IC way to acquire a gate key.

’This isn’t good.’
Though the thought felt like an understatement it summarized everything in a nice and neat little package in the girl’s mind. Violet eyes narrowed at the ground, curious emotions building up inside. Confusion, interest, and…a bit of fear? Fear stood out as the most curious emotion of all, one of the few ways she’d felt “alive” for the past couple hundred years. It only struck her those seconds before someone “death” that ultimately merely shoved her back into the realm she knew as “Paradise.” For those few seconds though Shade experienced fear: fear of falling, fear of crushing, fear of pain, and most importantly the fear of returning to that dark and decrepit place. A fear of being stuck there permanently.
It’d been that very basic fear that lead to the creation of a way to link herself to the realm of the living, offering a surefire return. Through Amarylis and Hallowed’s combined powers she’d created a special form of tree, one that could thrive in the realm of the living by feeding off of their energy and providing a solid connection between the realms. The largest of them existed in Joya, surrounding a long since dead village, but over the years she’d created them in various countries, leaving them in her traveling wake. Over time they became things of urban legend and myths, places to warn children away from due to the “dark magic” hidden inside, and on occasion they stood as places for adventurers and treasure hunters to plunge into in the hopes of riches. Those cocky and daring rarely returned, and those who managed to escape before their very essence became gobbled up generally didn’t live to see a whole year after the experience. These trees drained at humans the most, only nibbling at the woodland critters that otherwise called these places home.
So the fact that one of her trees appeared to have been uprooted and removed both intrigued and worried her.
’They should’ve drained the magic and life from the person before they could manage more than a dent…so why…WHY am I looking at a hole with so much loose dirt?’ Eyes roamed over the hole, hoping to find some sign that might tell her something, anything, and came up utterly lacking. The dirt spoke nothing of the events other than roots tearing through it, splattered around the grass like the blood of her otherworldly foliage.
Only the sound of leaves scraping against one another in the wind accompanied Shade, the woodland creatures no doubt long gone due whatever transpired here. Though that left her with another question, arm tightening around the thick moose plush as the other attempted to keep white hair from obscuring her vision, ’Where did my guardian go? I can’t seem to sense it in the forest…normally they’re forbidden from leaving…hmm….’ Well, no matter, she’d investigate that later as recalling them proved a simple manner and she wouldn’t have been surprised if it gave chase to the tree, an obvious path of destruction stemming from its original resting place. ”I suppose we’re off to see if we can’t find our thief, hm? CM?” The moose quivered in her arms a bit, the poor dear nervous as always, though for once Shade couldn’t blame him.
