    Spoiler:
    Job approval on page 11, post n°265.
    The world was a strange place where everything seems to change at a rapid rate. There was a time when it felt like time had eternally stood still for himself, but the world had continued moving. It had gotten to the point where finally being able to use magic hadn’t been much of a change. It had only been a bit over a year since joining the West Fiore Trading company, so when was it during that time that the mixed blood had started moving with the world? It was strange to think how much had changed. It was only a few months ago that the very idea of going under the ocean to visit the remains of what had been his home at one point. It was unexpected to see everything looking so well recovered. There was a need in him to see what was there, what wasn’t, what was still damaged, and how many of the areas remaining had that thick demon miasma. But realistically? Visiting there for any reason would come with a risk and he knew it. The grave robbers hadn’t found that place by accident. There was certainly a chance of spotting actual people from that group waiting for the inevitable. That was why Haraka had put a message on the job board. He wasn’t sure if anyone would accept it, but that’s why he was sitting here right now. Maybe it would have been better to ask for help, but then someone might want answers on why he thought danger might pop up in an empty sunken ocean under the bottom of the cloudy sea. Well, someone could still show up and ask anyway, but it just seemed less likely this way. All his job request had been was a request to get help remapping a sunken country.

    The young looking man would help them breathe underwater if needed so they could safely reach the location. Also the note at the end of the job about there would likely be trouble waiting but he didn’t know how much. It felt a bit stupid to have put something like that up, but this was also the first time asking for help in a non emergency sort of situation. He didn’t need to figure out what remained of the country, or how much damage was there. Would there be any gain outside of the piece of mind of knowing? Eyes gazed down towards the ocean water. Haraka was currently in his dragon form, a filled white bag slung around their long neck. The mixed bloods long shrimp like tail was curled behind him. Why wait in this form? The slayer lacrima made him really hate being on a boat, along with hating that he hated being on a boat now. It would just be easier in the long run to offer himself as a ride if that was what was needed to avoid that entire motion sickness fiasco. There was a nervousness in Omaras. The half dragon could get a better look at his home country again without worrying about grave robbers, probably. If anyone met him up here, it meant showing others his home land. It would be nice sharing its beauty with someone, even if there was a strong possibility people would be trying to kill them once they reach there. Doubt briefly clouded their mind, his two front dragon paws scooting themselves closer together. The sitting dragon let out a sigh.
    "Was this a good idea? Will anyone actually answer? Why do I want to do this so much?" Life was strange. There was definitely no need to visit, but the want was strong.



    The Blood of death kept me breathing. From that fluid birthed a new rhythm.

    Adalinda




    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    Adalinda takes a deep breath as she sits in a chair in the dream room. One of the last few things she did with her mentor was in this room mentally. He had told her to come in here, and had her fight the other vice presidents and both the CEOs. It had been a wild thing, and slightly traumatic to her. Not many people knew of the other side of the coin, and they were prepping her slightly for it too it felt. She joined willingly though. She was for this company, and all it was. A smile was on her face as she reached her hand back and rubbed her right shoulder blade. The mark of the company was there. She wasn’t mad. All the memories here in West Fiore Trading Company had been the best ones she had in her life. She only wished to make even more as time went on. How she wasn’t kicked out by now… was beyond her. Same as how she got where she was. She sits up slowly and gets out of the chair, taking a deep breath. “I guess the past will just have to stay there.” She muses to herself as she looks around. She’d have to try training in here one day. But that day wasn’t going to be today.

    She wanted to do a job, earn some extra jewels for her family again. Training could be done afterwards. She made her way over to the job board, and blinks as she sees a message from one of the members on their. “Why didn’t he just ask someone in general?” She questions aloud. “I dunno, but at least it gives others the ability to earn some jewel with it put up as a job.” The little purple exceed rests herself on her slayers shoulders with a smile. Ada shrugs and tells Alisha that she was going to be taking the job before she starts to walk off to where it seemed Haraka was wanting to do this. Near Cloud Sea… fun. “What are we going to do, Ada?” “Remap a sunken country it seems.” “Are you sure you’re able to?” “Hah! Nope… But maybe Veles will help me or something. I dunno. Or there will be a thing to help me breath underwater if anything. Regardless, there will be trouble though more than likely, so lets go out and do what we do best, be security.” She chuckles as she shrugged her shoulders. Tammy snorts to her slayer. Trouble seemed to follow Ada around, mainly because she starts it.

    When she made it the docks, she spotted the dragon near immediately. She was curious what it was that he was wearing on his neck though… a bag? “Haraka.” She calls out to the dragon with her arms crossed over her chest. She wore her white and blue trimmed jacket over her shoulders, showing she was wearing a white tank top under it like usual with her white slacks and black boots on her feet. Tammy was in a matching outfit, but her jacket was on her fully, and she wore a pencil skirt instead. “Should we change to something more… suitable for the water?” Ada snorts at Tammys question. She didn’t give a damn. She could jump in the water right then if she wanted to. “Better question. Where exactly is this country you’re wanting to map out?” She raised an eyebrow. “And anyone else joining us?” Tammy fluttered down off of Adalinda’s shoulders and stood on the dock next to her slayer. Her purple tail flicked from side to side as she looked towards the water. She honestly was curious about what it was they’d find in this supposed sunken country.

    “To answer your question though, others usually say finding a sunken country or whatever is always a great find. I don’t know anything about this country, so if it’s someplace you know… then you’re probably doing it for some weird thing like making sure it’s still cool or whatever.” Adalinda shrugged her shoulders. She had let herself get curious about her origins and wasn’t too fond of them, but if she were to help others uncover theirs, she hoped that it’d be a better experience than she had. “Whatever your reasoning for wanting to go out and map this country is though, it’ll be fine.” She shoved her hands into her pockets of her slacks and snickered slightly as she honestly was feeling cocky about this situation. She felt she was strong enough to help out in doing whatever it was he needed. Tammy giggled as she raised a paw. “Yeah! We’ll both help out! You won’t be alone in doing this!” She excitedly fluttered her wings to raise herself up again, hovering above the ground to be about eye level with her dragon slayer at least.

    Yona Hisamori had found herself staring at her reflection in the mirror for far too long. What had been a quick attire check had turned into a literal inward self-reflection. She had put on an old outfit.  It had been more than a year ago now, maybe closer to two years, when she had boarded the WFTC trading ship and stowed away beneath the deck. Her goal had been to grab a handful of "free" items and accept a "free" ride to some other shoreline. Travel was expensive and looking for the man who had killed her family had worn her down to desperate measures. As a woman instead of a girl, she adorned short brown shorts, a cropped black halter top, and the large brown coat with many pockets. She moved slightly in her old knee-high boots, feeling her toes press against the thin material, threatening to burst through. Her hands were stuffed into the pocket and she could smell the salt upon the coat still from all those days ago. Forced to face her past and Cirven himself had been an ordeal, and somehow she had gone from a stowaway thief to a VP of Onyx Moon. Yona blinked, unable to quite come to terms with the woman in the mirror and the memory in her heart. "Keep staring at the mirror and you'll invite me to pluck your eyes out," Ketsueki teased with a short set of disturbing giggles. Yona looked away with a shake of her head. It wasn't that she thought he could do it, but more so that she didn't feel like debating it.

    She pulled off her old coat and boots, sliding on her WFTC coat and boots. She looked better in white, which amused her to no end after her recollection of how she had hated the idea of wearing white so often when she had first joined. Nothing would make her feel more like herself than taking up a job. There was no reason why the title of VP had to make her feel so unworthy, so strange. Yona would just continue to do all she had been doing, only she would see it as a challenge and do it better. The plant mage had come to this decision the day before and had signed up for Haraka's job. She enjoyed the ocean, despite how terrifyingly deep and unknown it remained to the woman with strictly earthly talents. If he was going to help her to breathe, then she could help him. Yona still didn't care much for him, but her meager accusations and distaste for Haraka were made by an older version of her. She was more mature, more experienced, and as a VP she would not let anything get in her way of helping the members of the guild. So what if he talked like an old man and his long-winded stories reminded her of child's fairy tales? Yona could find it in her to be helpful and knew also that further interaction might solidify a new judgment of Haraka's character, seeing him through unjaded eyes.

    She buttoned the black buttons of her pearly white coat, leaving the lofted collar with black lining to frame her delicate neck. She didn't need to bring anything with her on missions or jobs anymore, finding security that her own power was indeed enough in most situations. Yona left the guild, locking her room on the way out and stepping out to the docks. She saw Adalinda and Tammy there, and an odd looking dragon creature with a long white neck. Yona paused at her distance and then continued onward. It was likely Haraka, but she had never seen him look like that before. Knowing Haraka would be less than thrilled to see her in particular, she made an effort to be congenial. She gave a wave and walked up to the small group. "So," She started to say, looking around to see that there were no boats closeby preparing to set sail, "Are we not taking a boat? Is it so close that we could swim there?" The demon inside her mind grinned, his face stretching over his fangs until it reached a full 180 degrees of his head. "I was so good last time. You'll have to let me play again. You just have to!" Yona waved a hand dismissively as if swatting a gnat away and continued addressing the others. "Hi Ada, Hi Tammy! It's been a while. With the three of us, this job should be very easy indeed. Have no worries Haraka," Yona said catching the expression on his face, "We are unstoppable." She gestured with her thumb at Ada and herself, chuckling as she reminisced about SwollenMan.

    Harakas 'whiskers' perked a bit at the sound of his name being called. The mixed blood knew who that voice belonged to, turning to look only confirmed as much. It was Tammys comment that made the the thick skinned creature realize a very vital bit of information had been left out of the job listing, one that the draconian hadn't realized until that moment. Well, that was fine anyway. It wasn't too late to tell them the information now so they could be ready to leave. "The country of ice is as close to a name as it ever got. It sunk around 6795 years ago due to an attack from a group that wiped out the majority of its population. I had to go down there a bit ago to stop some grave robbers and found out that the holy ice had fully recovered the region I was in and saw. The flora and fauna were in tact, the unique holy ice and snow of the country had recovered so much that it had create a tall oxygenated sky above the land. The buildings I did see looked as in tact as they were after the attack, but the demon miasma the attackers left caused the city I saw to be totally unreachable to all natural life in the region. You'll only need to get wet during the we travel to the bottom of the ocean towards that location. Trying to figure out what to do about the miasma will definitely be a different job. I have maps and other supplies in my bag." His reasons for wanting to go there? His reasons... It wasn't anything heroic or honorable, nor one that Omaras fully understood himself. There was no need to return, for no people lived there. The town that had been home burned down, nothing of it remained but him and two books.

    So why did he want to see it again? To find out how much is left? Why was even considering trying to find out how to remove the deadly miasma. Was it actually still considering it if it felt like the natural next step after mapping?
    "The maps I have are from before it sunk, so what we map out today will be unlikely to be nearly as big. We will land in the central area of the country, next to the old capital city and near the castle. Try not to look at the city, the deadly miasma has caused the bodies of victims to remain looking... fresh." There was no nice way to put that, but that was as close as the mixed blood got. The reason why he wanted to go had been avoided in a direct sense for now, but he had unintentionally answered it in a subtle way. It was the doctors home country, the place where he existed as an innocent child and where that innocence was shattered in a very not so nice way. Sometimes he could still see the fires, hear the screams, and the sights that one might expect to belong in hell. Yonas presence was strange. It wasn't unexpected to see her, only to hear her act so well behaved. Had she grown out of being a trouble maker? Was this a trick? Well there was no harm in giving her the benefit of the doubt. "A boat would be slower than riding me, and would also draw attention to the location of the crack in the ocean floor that leads to the country. I would prefer that only myself, those I trust, and the group that wants me dead know it exists. If too many find out it was a real location, treasure hunters might rob the location and harm the wild life in the process.

    Archeologists there just to try to help could make the same mistake, all they have to do is ignore warnings not to do something and chalk it up to superstition. If they do avoid hurting the land, they would still definitely try to preserve the bodies, which goes against the beliefs of everyone that ever lived there before it sunk." There were some people that meant well, but could do damage regardless. It was easy for those in the age where science has grown to dismiss old things as superstition, but that's not always the case. Some warnings were very important to abide by, which was also why one couldn't just grab every item they see anywhere in that ice country and just not expect consequences for that. That's not how it worked at all. "Anyway... The three of you get ready to leave, then climb on my back. I'll fly us there, though low enough that I'll blend well with the surrounding water. After we get to the location, I'll use a breathing spell then swim everyone down to the country at the bottom of the ocean, then try not to fly into any birds or anything and land. Does that sound good? Are there more questions?"  



    The Blood of death kept me breathing. From that fluid birthed a new rhythm.
