    Divergent Outlooks

    Post by Oras Auro on 24th March 2018, 11:12 am

    Oras had returned to Peace Village in order to do some more close investigation on the actual damage and speak with the villagers as well.  He knew they wouldn't like him at all, he couldn't help that.  However he needed to convince them one way or another, preferably one of the more rational and reasonable minds than anything.  He was a man of reason himself and found it difficult to work with anyone who did anything based on emotions.  It was true that emotions drove people to do anything at all, and that they were powerful weapons indeed.  But unless tempered and forged they wouldn't amount to much in the end now would they?  Just raw bursts of energy that had no control or direction.  You take the emotion and give it focus, give it direction.  And then you can use it to the fullest without taking unnecessary risks.

    Back to the main matter at hand though, Oras moved through the village.  He had recently reworked his magic, or rather, changed how he went about using it.  He believed it would make things more easier than he usually would.  He sent nine illusions out into the village, each of them in the shape of a bird native to this village to act as a disguise.  These illusions would help Oras in that he could see and hear what they did.  They observed some of the building's destruction up close while he used the rest of them to scout out for someone who may be willing to talk.

    Lucie ♣ Nightmare ♣ B Rank

    The Daemon overlooked Peace Village, standing atop one of the buildings. She knew that the Magic Council was at it again, rallying the mages of Fiore to deal with their problems-- the ones the Rune Knights could not handle. Lucie spied the circles dotted all over the landscape. How had they been drawn and scattered with no one able to figure out who drew them made the girl skeptical. The magic circles had been reported everywhere, so how was it that there were no witnesses? Nothing could just appear out of nowhere.

    Running her finger along the edge of one of the circles, the Daemon recognized it was made out of a different material than the last, and the last before that. The circles had been drawn out of many various substances. Why not be consistent? Was this the work of a massive group all using different materials?

    It mattered little. Whatever it was, this spelled bad for the innocent villagers of Peace Village, which was a slightly more upscale village than the others. There were rich and poor folks alike, and all of them unsuspecting about what was to come. Hearing sudden soft footsteps behind her, along with a rush of air, Lucie turned to see the fluffy blue and orange mammalian dragon. He had taken a flying leap from the ground and landed like a soft-pawed cat on the roof. Despite not having wings, he was agile and fast. “Did you find anything, Blue?” the Daemon asked the telepathic dragon, whose mouth was unable to form human words. However, his kind spoke with their minds, and despite not knowing the language of Earthland well, the fluffy dragon did his best. He respected the fact that Lucie was unable to pronounce his real name, and thus settled on the nickname she had come up with in her own tongue.

    The dragon nodded and lifted a paw, which contained some powdery material he had wiped off from a magic circle. Some of it was similar to the nearby circle Lucie had just investigated. The rest was new to the Daemon. “I see,” Lucie continued, stroking the dragon’s blue mane with one hand while she continued to gaze down at the circle.

    However, without any warning, the circle nearby began to glow, as did some of the remaining material on the dragon’s fur. Turning her head to look out over the rest of the village, all of the magic circles were suddenly glowing. Backing away from the circle with Blue, the Daemon narrowed her crimson eyes at the magical summoning drawing. So that was what this was.

    Within seconds, monsters began to pour out of the circle, breaking the laws of science and physics as expected of most magic. Out of the summoning area came a flood of insect-like creatures. Flying out into the skies, the swarm of wasps missed the girl and her dragon as they came rushing out of the glowing circle. Out of other circles, other groups of different monsters appeared-- goblins, rat swarms, flaming minions, and more hellwasp swarms began to manifest within the city.

    The blue-furred dragon let out a whimper, not fond of the hordes of monsters claiming the area. “Don’t be afraid. They’re here to send a message to the village and to that council I was telling you about. If they attack you, well, kiyo vadaci, nreeh rifsrut,” Lucie explained, grinning as she slipped into the language she knew the firedrake would understand. Even if he understood nothing else of what she said, he would understand the last four words. She herself would keep alert, ready to fend off monsters that chose to attack her, and to put down anyone who would get in the way of the raging monsters.

    As Oras walked through the village for the second time in his life, he noticed something, new. That wasn't here when he was passing by for the Black Rose Guild. There were magical circles throughout the town. Multiple types in various areas. It seemed laid out through a good portion of the village, though there was one section that seemed to have been mixed. Seeing this concerned Oras greatly as the villagers themselves seemed to be avoiding them as well. In fact there were a few guards posted around the ones in the village. Oras altered his path so that he could run into one of these and when he did he paused. The circle was very unique, one he'd never seen before. He approached it and knelt down for a better look. What was made to draw it wasn't as important to him more as just trying to figure out what the circles themselves were meant for. He imagined the circles and where they were placed overhead in his mind. From what he could tell there wasn't an actual order to it which meant it wasn't some village wide circle. They were each individual and acted independently. As he thought about it, one of the nearby guards noticed him and nudged his superior. The officer turned and looked at who the guard was gesturing to and began to walk over.

    "Hey you! Sir! Please stand away from the circles! For your own safety!" Oras didn't stand up but he did turn his head to look at the man, at least through his visor. "I'm a wizard passing by. I'd like to investigate these further if at all possible." The officer looked at him in disbelief, as well as annoyance. "Just because you're a wizard doesn't mean you can do whatever you want. Now may I ask you again to please step away from the magic circle?" Now Oras stood up and turned to the officer directly. Villagers were crowding around to watch this spectacle too, and even as this was happening Oras was still keeping an eye on everything with his illusions. Why was this guard proving to be a problem? "These villagers are scared of these magic circles because they do not understand their purpose. I intend to decipher their meaning so that I can either give them comfort or help remove them. As an officer and protector of the peace you should be assisting me in this instead of fighting me and worrying them further." "Don't you dare tell me how to do my job."

    Before the foolish argument could begin to go any further, Oras saw one of the circles light up through the eyes of his illusion. They all began to light up, one after another. Oras couldn't take any chances so using his telekinesis abilities, he scattered the material of the circle he was at into the air, destroying the circle and preventing it from being activated at all. The guard got angry and tried to pin him down but Oras shot off towards the next nearby circle while keeping an eye on the other ones. that's when the monsters emerged. Oras' eyes widened under the mask and used one of his illusions to communicate to the officer that the village was under attack, and to use the guards to either gather the monsters in one area, or to evacuate the villagers. He would try clearing the monsters out to the best of his ability while keeping the villagers safe. He wasn't going to let any innocents die today. This was his first real test. To see if he was finally strong enough to prevent the loss of life.

    Oras summoned his physical illusions to protect three circles he himself wasn't at just yet while he ran after the final circle. Little would he know that another individual was at that circle as well. He used the three illusions to attack the monsters in their sectors and keep the attention of the monsters but because of this he would be fighting his without the physical illusions. This was fine as he was able to alter vision, sounds, and he had telekinesis as well. In addition he could slow all of the monsters down preventing them from escaping a fight against him. Soon he reached them and leaped into the air as he activated his aura. His group of monsters seemed to be goblins. One of his illusions was fighting off an insect swarm so he gave that illusion the form of a giant dragon, it's attacks being false fire breath and it's claws and teeth. The second illusion was handling what looked like rat swarms, and the third was fighting fire like beings. The third illusion was drawing the monsters away from nearby buildings.

    When the goblins arrived they noticed they were moving slower than usual, and before they could locate the source Oras landed in the middle of them, his twin daggers piercing the heads of two of them. Suddenly he was everywhere, shooting and jumping between them as he slashed at them, moving around any armor and weapons and shields. A devastating weapon of mass destruction. As he used his melee weapons, he used his telekinesis powers to start forming a barrier around the circle that the goblins couldn't cross, keeping them in his fight.

    Lucie ♣ Nightmare ♣ B Rank

    Oh how lovely-- the nice little Peace Village was gaining another onslaught of destruction. Lucie fondly recalled the latest of the disastrous series of events the village had already gone through. It certainly had received the attention of the populace, seeing as one of the Wizard Saints had gone out of her way to destroy a guildhall and the surrounding areas of the street upon hearing the news.

    It felt good to finally be seeing some results from their actions. Lucie remembered her commission well, and was happy to oblige when the fluffy nekomata had given her the task to use her abilities to take down a portion of this place. Along with some help, some other dark mages and she managed to complete their mission, and see to it that one legal guild in particular would take the fall.

    The monsters appearing were icing on the cake. If only it were easier to frame some specific entity, guild, or person for their appearance. Naturally, the Magic Council would assume evil, but what if it was evil right under their noses?

    Unfortunately, Lucie did not know who was behind the monster summoning circles, but she certainly could try to make the best out of the ongoing situation. However, before the Daemon could continue to enjoy the chaos in the air and on the ground, she noticed multiple shapes fighting off the monsters. So it seemed the heroes had arrived. Something was odd about these individuals, though-- they all looked the same, and she could only identify one real soul presence in the area, with an ever-changing aura. In a way, it reminded her of what Ren mentioned of her own kind, but what this being had was far from a Daemon’s soul.

    She could now recognize the figures as illusions, something she was familiar with, due to her very nature. Summoning a few diamond shards in the air next to her, Lucie shot them at great speeds towards the illusions. Upon making contact, they would freeze the illusions in place. It did not matter if they were not physical-- her touch on reality was not on the mortal realm itself, but on the worlds of the emotional, mental, and spiritual as well, even if some of her reach was more limited than with others.

    The Daemon then changed her shape before the location of origin of the diamond shards could be noticed. She took on the form of the red-haired masked man, and generated a projection, an illusion, of the essence of his own illusory clones. Upon doing so, Lucie sprang towards the man at full speed, approaching as if she were to help fight off the goblins he was trapping, a blade in her hand made of diamond, but disguised as one of his own. However, right as she went for the monsters, she would whip around and aim to stab the ‘hero’. No heroes were allowed here. The Magic Council would pay for what they did, and anyone helping them was to be put down.

    Oras continued to fight the many monsters off along with his illusions. Once the civilians were cleared out then he could try using more forceful measures. He didn't need much strategy with these creatures after all, they were brain dead as it was. Some strategy yes, but only to keep damage in the village to a minimum. He was able to contain the monsters enough to avoid any permanent damage to the village so far and he'd like to keep it that way. One of the groups, the dumbest of the monsters, was just nearly finished off. The other illusions were about halfway while Oras was also just about done. Illusions couldn't act on their own so they usually acted based off of Oras' fighting style, instinct and any direct command he gave. Whereas he could act on intelligence as well as all of that. In fact, he was using his illusion magic to make it appear as if each other were guards or more wizards, fooling them into killing each other. He'd alter the light in the air to make it seem like he was somewhere else, causing them to swing at air and nothing more. By the time they figured out one of his tricks he'd switch things up a little bit. Soon enough they couldn't determine what was real and what wasn't, and just started hacking at everything in sight. He also made sure to only alter the appearances of certain enemies to keep them charging for the center of the clearing and away from the nearby buildings. By doing so he prevented any unneeded damage. The illusions were only a little less successful in that area, with a handful of buildings receiving some damage. Overall though everything was going very well. That is, until Lucie unleashed her magic in a surprise attack.

    Under normal circumstances he would have seen it coming a mile away and made the proper dodge and / or counter attack. Effectively gaining the advantage in the fight. However that was not the case this time around. For the first time since fighting against his teacher, he was caught in a surprise attack. However she wasn't exactly fully successful. She had made the mistake of making herself appear as if she were one of his illusions. His illusions which were spread out among the village to control the monsters. His illusions which he had complete and utter control of. His illusions which he had never once brought to him for backup. So when she tried to approach him as one of his illusions he knew he was facing another illusionist right off the bat. He quickly and easily dodged her attack, and was able to salvage an evasion with his own illusions. Only one of each of his illusions ended up receiving a hit, leaving two physical and two non physical illusions that could aid him in some way. Thankfully the physical illusion that was destroyed only had three more enemies before the horde was completely destroyed. The other illusions continued to fight their enemies while Oras focused on this new one. This pretender who tried a sneak attack despite him knowing everything his illusions ever did and do. If the attacker gave Oras time, he could have taken out the rest of these monsters before having to deal with another. Of course he'd need to handle things before they got out of hand.

    Using his powers of illusion he made every monster remaining take on the appearance of Oras, making at least eleven identical to Oras. He was already in the middle of them but at that point they just started slaughtering each other until soon enough, it was just Oras and the attacker. His illusions had finished off their hordes now and appeared beside him as he observed his assaulter. The illusion his attacker had put on vanished. There wasn't any need to explain how foolish the attempt to deceive him was, it was made clear very swiftly. His attacker was a woman. Nineteen, maybe twenty years of age. Not too far from his own age if he was honest. She may look young to others, but for Oras he saw her in a far different aspect. Her eyes and posture were that of someone who was filled with a controlled anger. She was an expert in attacking and inflicting pain. It was clear she had some ability to use illusion magic. If illusion was her primary focus as Oras' was, then it would be an interesting fight, and definitely worth it if it meant he'd learn how other illusionists operated. Was her magic similar to his or was it far more different? How did she use it in combat? He had a feeling he would find out soon.

    He would say nothing, waiting for her to speak first. Actually his posture and silence would speak for himself. He'd successfully defeated all the monsters, save every life in the village, and prevent too much damage from occurring. Whoever this person was seemed to either be the person who summoned these monsters, or was allying with them. Either that or she stumbled upon them and left them alone for one reason or another. Regardless of the reason, she had attacked him while he defended the village, meaning that she was more than likely an enemy above all else. He didn't care about reward. He didn't care about the magic counsel. And if he was honest he didn't care much about the guild he had joined recently much either. The only thing he cared about was ensuring that the innocent did not get caught in the crossfire of battles, wars and hate. If you were angry at someone then strike them not those who have done you no wrong.

    Lucie ♣ Nightmare ♣ B Rank

    Her attack was quite unsuccessful, with her own illusion so easily seen through. That confirmed at least some of her suspicions though, and gave her some much needed answers to her silent questions. One of the clones of himself made through illusory powers was destroyed, but this man had an army when it came to his opponent’s perception.
    Some of the nearby monsters took on the appearance of the shady, mask-wearing man, leading her to believe it was yet another illusion of the mage, and no madness of her own mind. It was clear which one was really him, however. She did not require the use of her physical senses to detect her enemy. Rather, she only needed the solid perception of his soul, in ever constant flux. She was unable to find a solid grasp on just what he was, after all.

    Demon, god, angel, holy, unholy, human, mortal, rinse, wash repeat.
    Even her own mixed and muddied soul did no such thing. It was not shifting its very nature and essence at inconsistent speed rates. Sometimes, his flux was slow, only to speed up, slow down, slow down, speed up, slow down, and speed up again…

    He was no Daemon, like she was. That was not the soul of one who consumed the souls of others to further their own nature. However, his striking soul made him easy to pick out in the crowd of mind illusions. “Look at who the Magic Council dropped in-- another one of their cats,” Lucie commented, her diamond blade shattering in her hands and disappearing. When it came to the magical politics of Fiore, the Rune Knights were the dogs of the magic council, loyal and almost always chained to a collar and a leash, and a muzzle if needed. Guilds were cats, free for the most part, but still pets reliant on their owners. Lucie took a wild guess that this man was a member of a guild, and assumed he had been deployed by the Magic Council, or at the very least was acting out of some sense of righteousness.

    “Playing the hero, I see,” the raven-haired girl continued, staring with stern red eyes at the true masked man. Her face held little to no emotion, other than a stoic look, with a mild hint of curiosity. “Peace Village is doomed with or without your help. Why waste your time here fighting monsters when the world is already overrun with them?”

    Given the framing of the Black Rose guild master, as according to the plans of the Savage Skull guild master, there was little left for anyone here to have a normal life. The name of the village was quite the oxymoron now, as it was anything but peaceful. Perhaps ‘Chaos Village’ would be a much more suitable name. Lucie fondly remembered the panic she had stirred the night they framed the legal guild of roses. Now that the monsters were spreading around the world, and were no longer contained to just Fat Monster Land, there were few places that could still be considered safe. Why did anyone waste energy trying to fight against a force that could not be stopped?

    Lucie rarely spoke much, and the words she had just uttered were far more than she was used to using in her statements. However, in this case there was no reason to be that normal girl of few words. The floodgates had been opened, and the monsters were still pouring from various circles. While not all of them were still active, the beasts in Peace Village were far from complete extermination. Granted, the beasts here were of a smaller scale than the monsters she had seen in the past, when the Magic Council had called mages to their aid.

    A Peace Village guard, seemingly controlled from the inside by one of the hell wasps, rushed towards the Daemon, sword flailing wildly in hand. He staggered as he walked, but still moved at a fairly quick pace. Before Lucie could make a movement against the attacker, a blazing bolt of fire was launched from the sky towards the possessed man. Within seconds, he was consumed by the flames, incinerated into nothing but ash. Following the brief snap of heat, a blue creature with a wild pelt of fluff landed from a long leap next to the raven-haired Daemon. The fluffy dragon gazed with curious and somewhat frightened orange eyes at the small army of masked men, being unable to notice the difference between every illusion. Despite his apprehension, the lion-sized dragon’s thick coat of fur stood on end as it stood in a battle stance, ready to defend his friend if any of the masked men made a move against them.

    Rifcha, the Lowland Behemoth Drake, slowly would light his bright primary blue pelt on fire, until the azure hue of his fur could no longer be seen-- covered by brilliant blazing flames. Fortunately, his partner seemed immune to the immense heat he produced. Not only that, but he had discovered that the fire he produced could even aid Lucie, should she consume the flames. If she needed them, he was alight and ready to aid or give action. All he needed was movement before him or a verbal or telepathic order from the Daemon.

    The woman took a second after her attack had initially failed. She seemed to be analyzing him for a moment, allowing him time to focus on his illusions and send them for the circles throughout the village. He had no idea if any more monsters would be coming from them and he couldn't take the chance. He had already kept the monsters long enough for the village guards to evacuate just about every citizen. There were a handful that perished, and he would talk to the family of those lost ones, try to give them some comfort later. For now however this had to end. He could not risk these monsters raging out of the village and chasing after the villagers. The guards would never handle the horde by themselves without backup, and even then there would be the high risk and chance of more civilians perishing from this fight. Not only that but there was this wizard to consider as well. Regardless of what may or may not happen he knew that this woman would not back down without a fight. When his physical illusion reached one of the circles and tried to break it, neither the circle nor the stone it rested on shifted. He narrowed his eyes under the mask and had the physical illusion try again but with more force. The stone around the circle broke, but the circle itself and it's surface remained unaffected. Why wasn't it damaged? Was there a magic ward around it? Or was the ground and circle itself infused with some strange magic... Either way it was clear the magic was complicated.

    That's when the woman began to speak to him, calling him a cat from the magic counsel. He turned his head to look at her through his visor.
    "The counsel is full of shit and corrupt. I don't care about them or you. What I do care about is keeping people who are innocent and have nothing to do with either of you safe. If you're angry at the counsel, hurt those who work for them." He kept it to the point and very simple. He didn't care about anyone but those who were innocent. They were all idiots many times and had a hard time doing anything that was actually worth anything. But they the right to live, and should be given that chance. If this woman was letting them be slaughtered because of a grudge, then he would shield them from that and attempt to redirect her anger towards those who caused it.

    When she mentioned him playing the hero and going on about how this village was doomed from the start, and how the world was already overrun and thus this was no point. He just replied as such:
    "I don't care about the village, only the lives. Saving everyone is impossible. I don't travel to save others, more so myself. But if I can save innocents along the way that's fine by me." He watched as a dragon of lion size arrived in the scene and seemed a bit intimidated by the number of his illusions, yet took a defensive position. Oras spun his blades in his hands before taking a stance himself. "Well, at least I get some practice in." Before he could do anything however, he heard some shouting from behind and turned one of his illusions around to see a rather large force of Rune knights. Servants of the Magic Counsel essentially. "Speak of the devil, and he shall appear." He loosened his posture but was still ready for if an attack came. "I doubt you'll be able to handle all of them, so I'll be on my way now. This should be distracting enough for the civilians to get to safety. Don't chase after them and we'll be good." With that Oras canceled his illusions and began walking away. Only turning to block any and all attacks the girl would release at him.
