    Starting Appearance:




    Fluttering in toward the docks, the Celestial Spider skimmed the surface of the water she flew above, trailing a couple fingers from  four of her six hands. Her glowing pink eyes searched the docks and ships ahead, picking out the shapes of  more than  few delectable looking mortals. She was sure any mortal who chose to brave the seas would have very nutritious dreams. But that's not why she was here, and why she made sure to finish off and release her last snack before flying out this way.

    Aranea had more than her fill of enough energy to fend off the ravages of the mortal realm a few weeks more. She would not be tempted to prey on those she was about to meet. The spidery spirit pulled up and touched gently down at the end of the dock. She had no intention of hiding her nature or identity from the people she intended to find. If they were half as competent as the countless mages she had known and dealt with over the ages, they wouldn't fall for her little cover story the way your average non-wizard mortal usually did.


    Shifted Appearance:



    She phased into a more human appearance, lavender locks cascading far d own her back as blonde, the pink glow of her eyes receding to reveal a sparkling blue human gaze, purple skin faded to fair, and a deeper purple dress turned teal. A single silvery key that dangled from her hip was maybe the one thing that stayed true in appearance.

    Aranea's Silver Key:



    Aranea was tired of living  a life of mere survival, living from mortal's dreams to the next, and never knowing if she would find mortal before she simply faded away. THe fate of every Celestial Spirit who did not or could return home. That is, unless shat spirit found a way to cheat oblivion the way Aranea had. Mortals' dreams could very potent things, and in them Aranea found the energy she had need to keep living these past few decades. She wanted more than that, the Celestial Spider wanted to find a way home.

    To do that she would have to atone, and the best way she could think to do that was to work with wizards again, the way she used to.  The spirit didn't necessarily need a contract to do that. Maybe..just maybe she could start on more even terms.  Things she'd heard about this WOTC made it sound like a good place to start.

    The eagle-eyed spirit scanned her surroundings, and zoomed her vision in on a building and set of doors that looked most promising. The teenaged appearing  girl started up the docks, offering a practiced kind smile to any workers she happened to draw the attention of in passing. She kept her path as straight forawrd to the large white building her eagle vision had zeroed in on. Aranea glanced around at everything she passed along the way. It was nice a little stroll between the docks and her destination.

    Finally arriving at the large whit building, Aranea wasted no time heading on in through its doors. As she took in her sights on the building's reception area, she called out, "Hello??"

    It was a peaceful day at the West Fiore Trading Company as one of the vice presidents Sol was sitting on the roof of the company building taking a break and smokeing from his beloved Kiseru. All he could do was focus on what had happened recently with new recruits and his student Kyrans sudden departure which still had him rather angry. As he sat there and smoked he caught a glimpse of something approaching the docks and then landing. Sol actually had no knowledge of someone coming to visit and he felt it was a good idea to go down and check to make sure it wasent a threat.

    Putting his Kiseru away Sol started to float off the ground as he watched her approach the building and as she opened the door he landed silently behind her. “I was unaware we were going to have visitors” he said before he glanced at her with his ruby slitted eyes.”I am Sol Terumi a Vice President of the West Fiore Trading Company what brings you here miss” he asked his tone was pleasant but the look in the eyes showed he was being cautiou as he looked at her waiting for an answer.

    Looking around the reception area, she murmured to herself, "No Palace of the Celestial Spirit King...but not bad." She continued a couple steps further in when she felt the hairs on the back of her neck stand on end. The celestial spirit knew this feeling well, it was usualy a feeling she got when the one being hunted..watched. Glancing back  over her shoulder to startled to see Sol closer than she had imagined. The girl startled, stumbling back a couple steps as she turned to face the silent dragon.

    Brushing down her dress, she straightened herself back up, and stood with her chest proudly out"Do you always sneak up on people like that? Besides.. I thought you were on some kind of break up there on the roof.  When did you get down? Nevermind that's a dumb question around when wizards are around."

    Aranea held the skirt of her dress out in a brief curtsy, "It's nice to meet you, Vice President Terumi. This... is usually where I'd tell you my name is Lucy Van Pelt, an aspiring celestial wizard. But I assume wizards today know more about celestial summoning than your average citizen, so I"ll just skip ahead a few steps. I'm Aranea, and I've come to join this West Fiore Trading Company."

    The spirit didn't volunteer anything further, a little caution of her own seeming a prudent thing. She was used to facing wizards on her own turf, not on theirs. "This is quite the grand set up you all have here."

    ”Sol said as he glanced at her, his eyes held caution in them as well as vast wisdom as he heard the woman explain that she was here to join, he shook off her way of addressing him since he didn’t care much of formality most of the time.”Just Sol will do and if your interested I can bring you in and test you to see your potential but be warned its not going to be easy” he said as he waited for her response.

    As she mentioned that the building was rather grand the dragon nodded.” Indeed we want to look good but make no mistake we work hard for what we have its better to earn things that to just have then handed to you don’t you think?” he questioned as he saw a receptionist motion him forward. “excuse me for one second” he said before he went over to her and was given a card with some information on it before he went back to the spirit.”sorry about that I had a message waiting for me now if your wanting to join please follow me to the training grounds” he said as he motioned for her to follow him.” So do tell me more about yourself I saw you approach from the docks and from what I saw you looked a bit different” he said before he glanced back at her with his eyes being curious.

    Aranea smiled and clasped her hands together excitedly. She nodded, ”Now we're talking.” The Celestial Spider followed to Sol's left, she glanced around as more of the interior revealed itself to her sparkling blue gaze. She giggled, “Heh, yeah. Hard work is often the only way to get what you need. Though I'd never be too proud to accept the gift of something I wanted, just because I didn't earn it. That's a silly notion and possibly an insult to the one who probably put in the hard work to give you such a gift.”[/color][/i]

    The spirit waited patiently, taking in more of her surroundings while did, nodding when Sol returned from retrieving his message, ”Not a problem.” She continued to follow him toward the training grounds. Aranea briefly pondered if finding passage by one of those boats would have simplified her interview process, and safeguarded some of her secrets a little longer. She dismissed the idea, surely she'd have to explain this much about herself sooner or later.

    As she continued to follow along, she carefully chose which bits to leave out until later, ”Oh..so I'm not the only one with excellent far vision. Then let me introduce myself more formally. I'm Aranea, the Celestial Spider. This silver key on my hip is mine, though it has been ages since I last had a contract with a wizard. What you saw was my true celestial spirit form. This is the human me, that I find makes traveling through mortal cities less... headache prone. I can phase back, if you don't think anyone will freak out having a little spider in the house.”

    yeah a gift is one thing but being given stuff just to try and get on ones good side is bad and I find it irritating to be around such suck ups” he said before he heard her explain that she was a celestial spirit and her real name was Aranea.”Hmm I would say keep it under wraps at first and perhaps gradually we can introduce it to the company.” He said before he remembered something he read about celestial spirits.”Wait how can you be here without a summoner if I recall being in the human world is supposed to be very hard on a spirit” he said looked at her his red eyes holding caution in them.
    After a moment he shrugged then spoke.”I will be willing to bring you into the company but one thing you should know is that the people of this island and the company are not to be messed with the mainland is one thing but here we take care of each other is that understood?” he asked making sure she knew the boundrys here. He didn’t know how she was sustaining herself if she had no summoner but he had to be cautious.

    The spirit frowns as she follows along. Admitting anything more was risky, but since these wizards possibly held the key to her possible return to the Celestial Spirit King's good graces, it was another risk she would have take. This was certainly not how she had survived all these decades. A Survivor's caution had only rewarded with mere survival, and no chance of returning home.

    She breathed deep, "Very well, I'll introduce myself as Lucy to anyone else..unless you advise me otherwise. That's what's on my passport. It's true I don't have a summoner and have not had one for decades. I was Exiled for attacking my last summoner. Sadly the Celestial Spirit King so often takes the letter of the law over the welfare of his own subjects, It didn't matter it was in self-defense or that my summoner was a cruel and abusive monster compared to his mother. He regularly tortured myself and his other spirits because he could, when he began using the letter of the contracts he had inherited to draw more spirits under his sway by making us trick them into making one with him, I had no other choice."

    She glanced down at her feet briefly before she continued, "Everything I'm telling you and going to be telling you is probably reason to not accept me, but I'm leveling with you, because I don't want there to be any surprises later. I'm tired of just surviving, and that's all I've been doing these past few decades. Mortal dreams are potent stuff, and have sustained me a few weeks at a time all these years.This spider is not sorry for the flies she's had to prey on to live. A spider has every much right as the fly to live, and my flies don't die when I've fed. They may forget who they are and lose their will... but they can recover their will and go on to live new lives."

    She continued to follow as she made her case, "So I hope your not going to suggest I should have let myself fade away. I can assure you I have never hunted wizards. I don't have a death wish. And you can trust me to not go after the non-wizards on this island, because in order to get back in the King's good graces, I need to do something like start working with wizards again, and prove myself worthy of a second chance.. earn the trial I deserved but never got. I am tired of merely subsisting. I want to go home. To do that, I need your help, and I will do anything for this guild if you just give me a chance to get that help Like putting everyone in Talgalen and this guild off my menu. Friends and allies are not flies. So yeah you take care of me, and I'll take care of you and anyone else this guild calls friend."
