    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    It had been quite some time since the short five foot, two inch mage had heard any word from her mentor. She had made sure that any letters that were sent to her by Ruvel, would be immediately directed to her, regardless of where she was at. They had last met back ages ago to get to Minstrel for another job. They had gone to talk to a priest there with Masha. That was a fun time, kind of. She had received a letter from her mentor just as she returned to Ace of Spades from a quick outing. She was reading the letter with her Gale force glasses rather quickly while she was eating her food. Noya was sitting next to her in her own little chair, and munching on raw meats. “Well then… I suppose I need to go meet up with Ruvel again... “ She says as she quickly finishes the food on her plate, and finishes the wine she ordered with the pasta. “I should quickly change to something a bit better to work with and head out.” The job had mentioned news of a treasure to be found that once belonged to a swordsman that was renowned for deciding the fate of every fight with a single strike. Gaia had honestly read up on this once upon a time in a book. It was regarded as nothing more than a fable. But to know that this fable may now be true? She was eager to see how true it could get.

    “Stroke was said to be a great swordsman who could direct the fight any which way they wanted. Their sword Divinus was said to have been blessed to him by the gods as a legendary sword for his courage. Noya! Do you realize how historical this is that it’s true?! They had found the area of the sword~! I thought it was just hogwash! But if Ruvel is sending me this letter about it… it might be true then.” She was jogging from the inn to her home at the edge of Ace of Spades to quickly change into something she felt would be a bit more appropriate.

    When she reached Rose Garden, where she was to meet Ruvel, Gaia was dressed in a white button up blouse with a orangish pleated skirt under. Over her blouse she wore a grey three fourth sleeve coattail jacket that was held together by a button to keep from coming off of her. She bore a star shaped bolo tie under the collar of her shirt with matching stockings on her legs, and low wedge strap heels. Noya was on her shoulders as she carried her staff in her arms, and held her cloak on over her arm as well. Honestly, she was rather excited to see her mentor once again. How would this job go down? She looked over to the cloud see from the docks, and felt the excitement just welling up once again. She bit her bottom lip and gripped her staff to try and calm herself down. Ruvel was to be here any minute probably. She was looking out for that little blond head of his. She had much to tell him now… or at least a little bit to inform him. Last she saw him, her magic wasn’t unlocked yet. Now, here she was, able to summon her cards whenever she wished! She lightly spins her wedding ring on her finger as she puffs her cheeks a bit.

    Pulling out her iLac, Gaia begun looking up more information on Stroke and his tale again. She read the tale before, he was a mysterious person, fought well, was gifted the sword, then was injured while fighting a sea creature and was poisoned. While he was poisoned, he secluded himself on an island in Cloud Sea, and built a shrine for his sword before he succumbed to the poison. She taps her chin as there was literally nothing more to the tale, and it was frustrating to her a bit. There had to be more… Shaking her head, Gaia stuffed her phone back into her bag, and went back to waiting for Ruvel, holding her head up as she leaned on her staff. “Noya, do you suppose we’ll be taking a boat this time? Or would we be riding upon Bennu again? I wouldn’t mind riding Bennu. But I don’t think I should ask…” She quietly murmurs more to herself than Noya. Gaia was personally feeling she would be pestering Ruvel if she asked to ride the beautiful fire bird once again. The little fuzzy white ferret was just resting on her masters shoulders still, not moving and watching her with her big black eyes. She too was waiting for the Ruvel to show again. She was rather excited to see him again herself. Gaia blinked as she had a thought. “Maybe I could see if Ruvel could teach me the language he spoke before? Or at least to understand and possibly read it.” She knew a little bit of other languages, but not his.

    Search for the Divine Blade


    It had been a while since the youth had seen the black haired tarot mage that was his first Sabertooth mentee, the last time they had seen each other he was the size of a toddler and they couldn't have a conversation without going through a third party. This was due to the difficulty of communication, his elder adoptive brother going missing and so the company and care of Tolgalen fell on his shoulders, the fact he was promoted to wizard saint before quickly ascending to being one of the four god of Ishgar, the need to go home for some unknown reason, the things that happened had not only broken the de-aging curse but given him an entirely new magic. Then there was issue with the area known as Tsak Ordahic, it turned out that the entire area was beyond deadly due to two deadly pathogens that no one knew anything about given how long they had been around. He had, had to get in touch with the other guild masters that overlooked the Silver Moon Fairy alliance and inform them of what was going on after the companies winter ball was gate crashed by two men who called Tsak Ordahic home. It was decided that information was needed so that the three guilds would go on an expedition together to figure out what was going on and perhaps learn more about the pathogens so they could make some kind of protection against it in the long run. It ended up that so many people wanted to help that it was split into six teams that each had their own roles to play.

    He himself was in charge of one of the teams that were charged with collecting samples, turns out they also had to fight and even done some scouting. He was so frightened about these deadly pathogens escaping their confinement that he had placed several contingencies in place that no one but himself knew about. Thankfully so far he hadn't had to enact any of them, it weighed on him that he had to do such things but it was for the greater good as far as he was concerned. He couldn't let something like that out of that area, if it did then the people of Tolgalen would be at risk and from there the ending could be cataclysmic due to just how many people came and went from the continent on a day to day basis from all over earthland. The burden was so heavy but it was one that he himself had to bare on his shoulders alone, that was the curse of the one who was the caretaker of the continent of Tolgalen he supposed. He had made sure that he was the only one that could use the most severe of all the failsafes, he was a passifist after all and even when all hope was lost he still looked for a peaceful solution. Now with the issue at home dealt with he believed it was about time he checked in with his mentee and help her grow some more, he really needed to get off Tolgalen for a while and away from the weight of responcibility. The more he thought about it the more he knew how ironic that was given that no matter where he ended up he had some kind of responcibility.

    None the less he had a letter written and sent to his mentee so that they might meet up and likely deal with unfinished business. He had been so occupied that he had actually forgotten the job that they were going on. 'Swordman of fate.' Amuul reminded Ruvel making the youth rolled his eyes 'We've been through this, fate doesn't exist if it did there is no way I would have ended up inside the hell of home. I would have been raised by my parents.' he sent back to the younger of the twin princes, in honesty he didn't know if his parents had died or had gave him to the facility he only knew as home for some reason. He liked to believe that it was the former over the later but he was losing the only memory he had of them, it wrenched his heart and stomach to think that one day that memory would be gone and he wouldn't know one way or another. He hoped that one day he could find his own answers but that meant going back to the place he apparently was raised, the ransaked palace inside the barren and frozen wastelands of the silent glaciers. He remembered the ruins of the land around it, it seemed so lively and well cared for from what he could tell when it was whole, now it was covered in wraiths, vengeful spirits and who knew what that couldn't find peace due to the violent way they had been killed.

    'Why haven't the death cast claimed the souls of my homeland?' he asked now he thought of it 'They don't know they are dead.' Oykai replied to him making the youth stop and blink in confusion 'Why does that make any difference?' he asked what he knew to be the leader of the cast 'They were killed before their time by one of the spiritual calling, due to this we can not claim until they should of passed regardless of how dangerous they are to the living...' Oykai replied sighing for a moment 'To try and do so has dire consequences, one tried and it cost their existance as they might hate the living even more than me it can be said but they do fatal damage to my cast and to this day I have no idea why.' he said his tone showing how perlexed Oykai was over the mystery 'They didn't attack me or Johann when we visited.' He commented 'They don't attack those born there and as Johann was with you he was seen as a noble guest of the crown' Shindara added, the whole thing gave Ruvel a headache but it was something that he would have to sort because he feared that they possibly would want to rest peacefully by now, they deserved it after protecting their homeland for many cycles he guessed. For not that was an issue for later as he would need to discover more about the land he was born of, its people and what happened on the faithful day they all seemed to have perished. His stomach twisted as he was frightened that he might have been the cause of it but without proof there was no real way he could know, it was just all a dreaded speculation. He had arrived in Rose Garden a while before his letter would have made it to Gaia but he guessed that since he lived on another continent she would have went to the docks believing he may have sent the letter via a magical means so got to her within a matter of seconds. It wasn't until after his conversation about his birthhome that he realised he was right behind her when she mentioned Bennu "Well that would be up to you, I prefer riding Bennu over being on a boat to be perfectly honest." he whispered into her ear before taking a few steps back his hand going to his chest as he bowed making sure she had turned towards him before doing it. "It allows me to not only have a closer bond to him but tend to his health. There is also the fact that he is faster than a boat, we don't have as many dangers flying and he is warm." he explained a warm smile on his face. "However, if I am to call him we couldn't do it inside rose garden, his flames can turn sand to glass and quite often creates obsidian." he said showing he wasn't willing to put the town at risk for such a thing but would allow her to choose their mode of transportation. "And which language would you want to know, I know several thanks to the bonds I have held and still hold." he enquired not realising this was the first time he would have seen him as a teenager as he was the size of a four year old toddler last they spoke.

    The Divine Mage

    The tarot mage had honestly been lost in her own bubble to realize there was someone so close to her. She usually had herself alert in case someone wanted to gnab her from home or something. She blushed rather deeply and had a hand over her ear that was whispered into. "M-mr Mizune!" She says before she quickly straightens herself and bowed to him. "Apologies for not noticing that you were there! It had been a while since I've seen you, and you look much different than before!" She muses to him. He talked about why he preferred to ride on Bennu, and her eyes lit up a bit. She begun nodding about the faster than a boat bit, she was aware of that at least. Her eyes were practically sparkling as she was excited to do so. Surely her dragons wod be jealous… but that was a risk she would have to take with this opportunity.

    He had questioned her about the language she wanted to know. "Oh! The one you spoke to me with before! The erm… oh! With Shindara translating for Masha and myself!" She nods to him. "And I would like to ride Ben-" Before she could finish, someone came racing towards them and bowed apologetically to Ruvel. "Sorry, sir, we have an issue that you're greatly needed for. And it can't wait or hold off for anyone else." He glanced towards Gaia, who was seeming disappointed in this, lowering her shoulders. "It's okay, work first. I can ride Bennu another time." She wouldn't say she was disappointed, but there was hope for another time with those words as she watched her mentor excuse himself and the two West Fiore Trading Company members leave her presence.

    Gaia stood there, feeling a bit dejected, and closed her eyes. A gasp escaped her lips and she somewhat rushed off to the nearest post office. "Maybe Itori would like to come with me?!" She murmurs as she sends a letter to her fellow ace requesting if she'd like to assist in finding this historic piece, telling her she was currently waiting at Rose Garden docks if they wished to join. Noya had reached down and stamped her paw print on the paper after Gaia signed the paper, making the mage lightly scold her for doing that, but didn't go further than 'its not good to do that' and went to mail the letter to the kitsune. Of course the bespectacled mage was determined to continue with this job. She wouldn’t be able to wait too long if she were to leave then come back with Ruvel. The sword might be taken by then, and worse case scenario, someone uses it for nefarious deeds! Stories of the lore of Stroke and his weapon, Divinus was something that shouldn’t be passed up on so easily. Sure, there was bound to be others trying to go for the weapon, as well as nasty pirates. But she had faith in her summons that she’d be safe. Noya would help her out too if she needed it.

    Post by Itori 9/24/2020, 6:48 pm

    It had been a quiet day so far. Itori had helped sweep the floors of the Red Dragon Inn, cleaned some of the rooms, then wandered throughout Ace of Spades and helped out people with their daily tasks. It might seem strange that she could just walk up to people and aid them with housework, but by this point, she was well-known across the city and everyone was aware that she considered it part of her duty as an Ace to help the citizens, even if it was with mundane tasks that she could finish in an instant if she but bothered to use her magic for it.

    But using magic would defeat the point. Itori wasn't opposed to using magic, even for simple tasks, but there were times where you didn't want to resort to using your most potent abilities. For her wandering through the town and helping people out was as much for the sake of having something to do with her time as for the sake of altruism. Not that she was in danger of getting bored or anything: the tenko had long since forgotten what it meant to be bored. It was just that of all the things she could imagine doing with her time she quite enjoyed the idea of doing this.

    It also helped that the people of the Ace of Spades were friendly and cooperative.

    So no, she wouldn't use her magic to finish their chores in an instant. Unless there was an emergency or she was short on time there was simply no point to it. Life had no meaning if you only ever used the most efficient means to skip the journey and reach the goal. She'd known other long-lived people who felt the same: an entire tribe, now lost to the sands of time, who for as long as they'd lived had tried to avoid using their supernatural abilities as much as they could. They could achieve nearly everything they wanted as long as they put the effort into it, but they had realized that danger of such power and shyed away from it.

    To this day Itori was quite certain that the cause of their disappearance from this world was not a natural disaster or hostilities with other people. Instead she believed that the tribe of nigh-immorttals had run out of reasons to remain in this world.

    A tragic story. Depending on how you looked at it.

    She thought about that as she began to stroll back towards the Red Dragon Inn, where she would use the teleportation device to return to Yggdrasil. She'd spent enough time helping people, and she had an interest in spending some time reading. The libraries inside the world tree were of such massive size that she was quite sure that even if she had a second eternity she wouldn't be able to read everything in there. Maybe Gaia could... The other Ace could read at quite an amazing pace, and that wasn't even including the enchanted glasses she used.

    "Hey, Ito! Message for you from Gaia!"

    Itori tilted her head to the side. Speak of the devil... She looked up above, where Nenet the phoenix quickly swooped down and landed right in front of her, holding out a letter. The fiery-winged woman was looking as chipper as usual, and Itori answered that familiar grin with a smile even as she accepted the letter. "Thank you very much Nenet. I assume you already know what the contents are?" She didn't think it was possible for anyone to explain to Nenet that there was something indecent about reading Itori's mail. Not that the tenko minded, since she trusted Nenet, but still...

    "Oh, yeah. She needs your help with a job. Something about an ancient sword." Nenet shrugged as she placed her hands behind her head. "She's in Rose Garden, anyway."

    Itori raised an eyebrow as she stepped to the side of the street so the two of them wouldn't interfere with the traffic while she read through the letter. "I would not have guessed that Miss Sabin would have an interest in any sword." There were plenty of mages who had an interest in weapons, whether it was ranged or melee, but Gaia had always appeared to be drawn both towards books and magic. Reading the letter herself definitely cleared up any confusion, however. "Well, it appears to be less about the blade itself, and more about the history behind it." She looked at Nenet, who was already nodding. "Could I ask you to accompany me?"


    Arriving at the edge of Rose Garden Nenet turned back into her bipedal form after Itori had slid off of her back. While Itori was capable of travelling on her own two feet Nenet was both fast and quite a comfortable ride. Itori wasn't entirely sure whether it was because of the softness of her feathers or the warmth of her phoenix flames, which rather than scorching your flesh would warm your very soul. Regardless of the reason, she found it quite pleasant and Nenet certainly didn't mind helping out like that.

    "So this Stroke guy was some master swordsman who could basically do anything with a sword? I bet he knew a lot about stroking then!" Nenet snickered at the easy joke. Itori, however had her eyes cast ahead as her ears twitched and she located Gaia's presence within the large city. "The basics of the story are accurate. Stroke was a master of the blade, with abilities of such magnitude that I imagine even Miss Nassar would have found facing them a challenge. A warrior without equal, many would say."

    Nenet raised her eyebrows at that, then blinked. "Oh! Did you know him?" Itori shook her head, the phoenix girl following the tenko as the two of them began to walk towards where Gaia had to be waiting. "I heard of Stroke during my travels, but we never did cross paths. I must admit, given how this was a scant few decades ago I am mildly surprised that the story has already become something of a legend. Whether that is a testiment to how unique a person Stroke was, or merely an example of how quickly history fades from memory..." She left the thought unfinished, Nenet raising her eyebrows further before shrugging and looking around instead. "Well, the sword is definitely real."

    Itori nodded this time. "Indeed it is. And we shall most likely meet more than a few individuals who would want it for themselves. For better or for worse." Her vermilion eyes were looking into the distance, looking at something beyond sight, before she returned to the here and now. "Probably one of the reasons why Gaia wants to get her hands on it." Nenet chuckled as she saw some street performers juggling flaming spheres. "I really like Rose Garden. It's always so lively." Given that her own element was fire she was right at home with the vibrant atmosphere of one of the most magic-laden cities of Fiore.

    Itori didn't immediately answer that observation, but she couldn't disagree. The world was filled with places where life was tough: it was nice to visit a place like Rose Garden where you could see the fruits of people trying their hardest to create a place worth living in. It also helped strengthen her desire to help create other places of a similar nature. Ace of Spades was one of them: while it lacked the sheer liveliness of Rose Garden it was thriving and filled with warmth. The kind of city where you could spend your entire life and be content every single day, from child to elder.

    As the two of them reached the spot where Gaia's letter had told them to meet up Nenet would be the first to call out towards the tarot mage, raising both hands in greeting. "Hey goodlooking! Hope we didn't make ya wait too long!" She gave her usual friendly and slightly cheeky grin. Itori meanwhile simply walked up to Gaia and gave her a light bow. "It is good to see you in good health Miss Sabin. I believe we are to aid you in recovering a powerful artefact before it is taken by those of a less savoury nature?"

    The Divine Mage

    Gaia was showing Noya some pictures of the possible depiction of Stroke and how his sword looked. She was also brushing up on more stories on him and his many adventures. There weren’t any visible pictures of them as Stroke had kept his face away from most others besides from those he fought with. Or at least that was what was said about him. While she was a bit in her own world, Noya perked her head up and chirped happily towards Itori. Gaia looked up just as she was called out to. She blinked a moment before she smiled brightly. “Hey! It is good to see you as well Itori!” She turned off the screen of her iLac and placed her hand on her hip.

    “Yup! I wish to find Strokes sword, Divinus. I briefly mentioned that Ruvel invited me to do this in my letter, but something came up for him, but I wish to continue this search regardless. A sword rumored to be as powerful as it is would only cause trouble in the hands of, as you said, of those of a less savoury nature.” She nods as she smiles brightly. “I had hoped you would help me out in this and booked us a couple tickets for a ship since it might be easier to find the sword that way. I’ll try to not also hold you back as well.” She claps her hands together as she bit her bottom lip, iLac in between her hands as she did so. She looked back as a whistle was blown for passengers to board the ship. She turned her burnt sienna eyes back towards the kitsune and smiled brightly as she put her phone in the little pouch with her tarot cards on her hip. “I’m ready to go when you are.” She muses.

    As the two boarded the ship, Gaia smiled at the ship's crew and nodded a thank you to them. She let herself be near the railing as she was feeling giddy. “To think, I’m roughly as old as the tale of the sword being hidden.” She laughs softly to herself. Noya chirped to Gaia as she moved to wrap herself around her masters shoulders. She wouldn’t be leaving Gaia anytime soon. The bespectacled mage looked towards Itori and smiled. “Have you heard roughly where the sword was?” She had reached back into her bag and pulled out a folded piece of paper. She had almost missed it before, but Ruvel had left her with the map for the potential location of the shrine for the sword, and she was going to utilize it to the best of her abilities. She opened the map up and looked at it again. Pointing to the far upper left corner where some smallish islands were peppering the map.

    Already she had talked to the crew about the location she wanted to go. She had indeed told them about the shrine and the sword both possibly being there, wanting to prepare them that she was hiring them as a form of passage to the place, and that there would be others trying for it as well and could be dangerous. She wasn’t just standing around after sending her message to Itori, she had to be productive!

    Search for the Divine Blade (job w/ Ruvel) Empty Re: Search for the Divine Blade (job w/ Ruvel)

    Post by Itori 11/30/2020, 8:36 pm

    While Gaia and Itori discussed the job at hand Nenet gazed out over the ocean. As a phoenix she didn't really have much interest in the large water bodies: for one thing, she had all her flames which she would rather not see extinguished. For the other, she could fly so it wasn't like she had any difficulty crossing such obstacles. She could count the amount of times that she had to swim on one hand. All the other instances had been more for the sake of fun than anything else, but she doubted that there would be a lot of vacation time during this job.

    While Nenet was rather unusually lost in thought Itori listened attentively as Gaia explained the situation in person, nodding at the right times to show that she was keenly paying attention to the other ace's words. "Given the level of power that Stroke wielded during their time it would have been inexcusably neglectful of me to not answer your request for aid in finding their sword." She tilted her head slightly to the side. "Of course as we are members of Sabertooth dangers that originate from this realm are not necessarily our primary concern but I would be surprised if anyone commented on that."

    "I shall also dedicate myself to being a worthwhile contribution to this mission." After giving Gaia a light bow Itori's ear twitched and she looked towards where the boarding whistle was blown, alerting all passengers that it was time to depart. "Nenet and I are prepared to depart, so I suggest that we hasten ourselves to board the ship." As if on cue Nenet rejoined the conversation, grinning as she looked at the boat. "Hey, if it means I can just relax and let the boat do all the work." With that she stepped on board, with Itori following behind. While Gaia might only have bought two tickets due to not having met Nenet before Itori would quickly resolve that small issue so the three of them could set sail.

    Nenet wandered about on the deck, watching the crew work, while Itori joined Gaia at the railing. "I must admit that I was rather surprised to learn that Stroke is treated as a legend despite their story describing events that occurred in very recent history." She gazed out over the endless waters. "Usually such a story would only become a legend after at least half a century had passed, if not more. It makes me wonder why the story of Stroke and the blade Divinus would change from history to folklore so rapidly."

    Unfortunately she had to respond negatively to Gaia's question, shaking her head as she did so. "I fear that I will not be of much use in that regard. While I did hear of the exploits of Stroke during that time I was occupied with other matters. The only thing I know is that Stroke sailed out into Cloud Sea to find the most isolated of islands, to build a shrine in which the blade Divinus would be sealed away to prevent it being abused by individuals of the same character that we mentioned earlier. As such, the only lead and suggestion that I have is that our target must be a lone island, most likely small and nameless."

    Of course Itori did have some methods to help search, but she wasn't going to be able to shortcut the entire job by simply telling Gaia where the shrine with the sword was. As the two of them discussed the task the skies would remain clear, which was a good omen since being out at sea during a storm was just the worst. Nenet was spending her time flirting with one of the crew members, with varying levels of success.

    "While we have mentioned the risk of less pleasant individuals obtaining the sword Divinus I find myself curious whether you have received information that such individuals are currently actively searching for it or if we are merely pre-emptively taking the sword into custody."

    The Divine Mage

    Gaia was glad that the kitsune was accepting in helping aid her in this search and she smiled sweetly. “Thank you very much for your aid!” Her eyes glanced over to Nanet as she spoke, and smiled to her as well before getting onto the boat. After Itori expressed her surprise about Stroke and him being treated so soon as a legend, Gaia tapped her chin while she thought of it. “It may be because he was so good, one of those once in a lifetime fighters that you do only hear about in legends and folktales. Someone being that good is rare, afterall.” She takes a deep breath before asking about if Itori was aware of the location.

    She pushed some of her dark hair behind her ear, and listened momentarily, nodding as she leaned over to show Itori the rough estimate on the maps. “Yes. Somewhere around here should be the location of the shrine with the sword. I won’t be surprised if there are multiple with fakes though.” She mentioned before she looked up to see what other workers were doing, and Nanet. Her eyes then trailed to the sky, smiling to herself before over behind her to the waters again. Itori spoke up again, and she blinked to the woman's comment. A small smile slipped on her lips. “I didn’t receive any information directly, but I did hear mere talks going around the docks that had me guessing that there are people in search of the shrine for its blade. And for the fact that it’s Stroke who we’re talking about. Unless you count rumors as information, then I would have to say both are the reason for the warnings of pirates and dangerous things enroute to the blade. A blade as mighty and as valuable as a famed wielder of it, is absolutely not something that should be out and about in others hands.”

    She looked down to the map again, gripping it slightly before she shook her head and looked up again. She wasn’t going to second guess herself on if this was the ‘right course of action’ or whatever. It’s better to be prepared than be underprepared. Be ready to fight, even if there is no fight at all during the mission. She would prefer that, honestly. She would hate to have to deal with fighting… She turned back to the water. “Let's hope precautions weren’t necessary at the least…”

    As she said that, she was barely hearing horrid screaming coming from a distance away from the ship. It was accompanied by some ‘music’ as well.

    “Help me Bob, there’s a bully in the alley
    Way, ay, bully in the alley!
    Help me Bob, there’s a bully in the alley
    Bully down in "Shinbone Al"!”


    She shuttered a little as she turned her head to see the weak little boat of tattered shirt men aiming their ship in the same direction as theirs. She was honestly questioning if the holey thing could be considered a ship with how much it was in disrepair.

    “Ship!” Someone in the pegged ‘crows nest’ called down to the commerads below, making Gaia glance towards Itori as they did that. She still wasn’t sure how this little thing was making its way towards them like so… The man in the crows nest held his hands around his mouth to call down to the shipmates before he was looking up to the ship, and towards Gaia and Itori. “Ey! Joe! I think they’re trying to look for the sword! Ey you wenches! We’re getting to it first! Or we’ll be forced to have to beat you for it! And hear me, we won’t be nice about it either!” He had laughed a laugh that made Gaia shutter and make a face.

    “Gross…” She couldn’t help but mutter to herself. Should they even be dignified for a response? They didn’t really even have any weapons on their poor ship. “S-should I even do anything about them? They seem more like an annoyance than anything…” She mumbles to herself before she puffs a cheek up. She holds up two fingers, almost seeming like she might be holding an invisible cigarette potentially, before she breathes out a mumble to herself. “Water Knight Pachua…” The card jumped out of her pouch before landing between her fingers. On the card is a silvery-blue dragon holding a golden chalice in their claw, and that same dragon will shimmer out of the card behind the tarot mage. “I apologize Knight Pachua… but could you keep them at bay? Don’t harm them if you can.” She looked up to the dragon with pleading eyes.

    The knight closed his eyes before dipping his head down for a quick nod. As his element was water, he looked down towards the water before pointing the chalice, that he still held, towards the water in between the two ships, but closer to the more damaged one. Water bursted from the cup from wherever the source was from, and created a great enough wave towards the other ship that they were able to steer it far off course away from them. “I hope that was satisfactory, Lady Gaia…” The knight grumbles in a husky voice. They were holding the cup upright again, and no more water was flowing from it. “I will stay to lend my assistance…”

    Gaia looked back to the knight and gave a small curtsy to the knight. “Thank you! That would be very helpful. Please help us well when we need it.” She watched as the dragon nodded to her before deciding to go overboard into the water to be another patrol to the ship. She heard some murmuring behind her from the crew, and felt her cheeks blushing a bit. She didn’t use her magic too often like this. Part of her was self conscious since she had been without her cards for so long, but at the same time, she was grateful for the cards and their assistance to her.

    Post by Itori 5/15/2021, 2:31 pm

    Itori inclined her head as Gaia expressed her gratitude, then pondered the question of why Stroke's legacy faded into legend so quickly. The tarot mage's suggestion, that it was because the blade master had been so unusually powerful that it was difficult to see such stories as anything but legends, was worth considering, the tenko folding her arms inside of her wide sleeves. "That could be part of the explanation, although even then I would have anticipated for there to be those who had known Stroke personally, and who would still be around to affirm that the blade master did, in fact, exist."

    "Maybe they couldn't be arsed." Itori let out a small sigh at Nenet's casual input. The phoenix might be correct, but the tenko would rather not just attribute the situation to what was the most laziest answer possible. "That said, the fact that most people consider Stroke little more than a legend does mean there should be less individuals invested in acquiring the mythical blade. If Stroke was commonly accepted as being real entire nations might have become involved in the fight over the weapon that could guarantee victory to the wielder." The blade, Divinus, was no mere weapon after all. Stroke could have slain most opponents with little more than a kitchen knife, but it was Divinus which helped Stroke achieve feats which no mere mortal should be capable of achieving no matter how good they were with a blade.

    The nine-tailed fox frowned slightly, then shook her head as Gaia suggested that there could be fakes. "It is certainly a possibility, but I would not spend too much time anticipating it. From how I remember it the stories say Stroke built the shrine housing the divine blade alone, over the span of four years. Unless the records have omitted the aid of other individuals it is more likely that Stroke did not have the luxury to also build several fake shrines." She closed her eyes as her tails swayed softly behind her. "In addition, Stroke was most firmly a blade master, utilizing no abilities or tricks beyond physical prowess and skill with the sword. If any challenges have been left behind to increase the difficulty of acquiring Divinus it is unlikely Stroke would base those challenges around deception. A master of the sword may use feints to confuse their opponent, but they would not rely on a hidden blade to strike."

    "That aside, I wholeheartedly agree that it is vital for us to keep such a powerful weapon out of the hands of those who would misuse it, of which there are many." The tenko looked out ahead, vermilion eyes studying the waters ahead before her ears twitched and she glanced to the side instead. "And as we speak of the devil, may its presence be revealed to us." Her expression was one of distaste, as she was forced to listen to really poor music even before it came close enough for the others to notice.

    Nenet, on the other hand, laughed once she could hear it. "Well, someone is having fun!" She looked away from the sailor who was managing to resist her playful flirting, the phoenix unbothered as she instead watched the ragtag bunch of fools with a grin. "Might as well leave them be, they're pretty funny." Even though she said that she didn't actually bother to get in Gaia's way when the tarot mage summoned one of her dragons to wash the other boat away. Instead the phoenix just leaned against the railing of their own ship and waved at the beggar-looking crew as they were carried away by the wave. "Better luck next time~"

    Itori, on her side, did her best to put that bunch of nothings behind her. Gaia had gotten rid of them without harming them, so there was no reason to pay any more attention to them. Instead she kept listening to their surroundings, her brow furrowing once more as she could hear another ship in the distance. "I suspect we shall be facing a more problematic adversary within the next half an hour. They are still quite far away, but from the sounds of it they are considerably better equipped and also better trained than those men Sir Pachua just relocated."

    Nenet looked into the distance, then back at Itori and Gaia. "Want me to go deal with them? A little fire on the deck should scare them off, and I might be able to get a fight in as well." Her grin made it clear that she was itching for an excuse to punch somebody.

    Itori glanced at Gaia. "I suspect that might be the best course of action. The less uncout individuals we have to deal with on course to securing the weapon the better. Just be careful not to get captured..." She resisted the urge to sigh again. Knowing Nenet she might let herself get captured so she could fight her way free or something.

    "I make no promises!" With that Nenet jumped into the air and spread her wings, flying off into the distance where a ship was beginning to become visible on the horizon, albeit still far, far away. Nenet's wings left behind a fiery, glowing trail as she quickly became a distant figure as well.

    The Divine Mage

    A soft giggle escaped her lips as Nenet had put her own comment about the people around Stroke and why they didn’t exist. She agreed though with Itori as she mentioned there would be less individuals wanting to get after the sword. That should be a plus, but she wasn’t fully sure. “Or people thought it was a fake. Too good to be true.” She mumbles to herself about why there wouldn’t be many people gunning for the sword before shaking her head to stop dwelling on it. She listened to Itori tell how she recalled the stories of the legendary swordsman and how he made the shrine for the sword himself. The possibility of challenges also wandered through the tarot mages mind too after it was brought up.

    She took a deep breath after dealing with the bandits and Sir Pachua went into the water, and glanced over to Itori. She takes a deep breath as she nods and leans over the railing a little, letting her fingers dangle down while she watches the water. She knew if she were to be in the presence of her parents, or anyone of high society, they’d probably scoff at her for her ‘improper’ actions. But she was in the presence of a ship’s crew, and a fellow guild mate and their companion. There was no need for her to be proper and she could relax. Put her in a diplomatic position, she might act a little differently.

    “I have no doubt they’ll be better trained, not everyone on the sea is a potato on a plank of wood and knows what they’re doing around a ship.” She had mused aloud. She looked over to Nenet and raised an eyebrow, but her attention was brought to Itori again as she approved of her companion going after the next ship, and nodded in agreement, before she snorted at the ‘no promises’ bit. The phoenix honestly gave Gaia the vibe that she wouldn’t keep the promise in her fun.

    “I don’t think I’ve asked or heard… How did you two come to know one another?” She asked curiously to the kitsune before she stood back up again. Noya perked her own head up and looked behind them to the crew, before looking back to Itori and Gaia. Gaia quickly clears her throat as she ducks her head below her shoulders slightly. “If it’s okay for me to ask while we wait to hear what happens to that other ship?” She bit on the inside of her cheek as she stood there, before she moved her left leg to hook her foot around her ankle.

    "It is true that the accomplishments of Stroke were of such scope and magnitude that more than a few might dismiss the stories as nothing more than embellishments and fanciful tales." Itori mused as Gaia contributed her own idea for why Stroke might not be better known. The tenko might have spent more time considering the question, but the band of ragtag misfits in an even shabbier boat distracted her. After that she was thinking about other things, so the question of Stroke's anonymity faded away into the back of her mind.

    Itori stood next to Gaia as she peered out over the waves towards where Nenet was approaching the distance ship. Her folded arms were hidden inside the wide sleeves of her clothes, leaving little more visible of her than her nine lustrous tails and her head. She nodded as Gaia commented on their next encounter. "Indeed. To brave the waves is no small task, and those who are unprepared will either bring back tales of disaster or not return at all. Those driven away by your ally should count themselves lucky that they made it this far, given their abundant lack of skill and experience." She showed a small smile. "Thankfully, as casual as Nenet may be in mannerism, it is unlikely that a collective of common bandits, seafaring or not, would be able to overwhelm her." Itori might find Nenet's behaviour a tad too playful, but she would never deny her friend's skill.

    "It is no trouble at all Mrs. Sabin. Most likely she will take her time, savouring the opportunity." Itori looked towards Gaia, ignoring the ship in the distance for the moment as she held out one hand, palm upwards. Above the hand a small illusion formed, a sphere showing a scene of a valley hidden in the Phoenix Mountains. "Some time ago Sir Uchūken fell ill, and it was deduced that the most effective medicine would consist of yellow bamboo seeds, only found in the Phoenix Mountains. I was tasked to retrieve these seeds: aside from an opportunity to test my abilities, the Phoenix Mountains can be quite dangerous for the unprepared."

    In the distance a fiery light erupted from the pirate ship, and if one strained their ears they might hear sounds of battle and screams. Itori barely acknowledged it, merely flicking one ear before continuing her tale. "Finding the location I was prepared to retrieve the seeds and swiftly depart, but as it turned out a phoenix considered the valley an extension of its territory. Unsurprisingly, that phoenix was Nenet. After a brief conflict I managed to persuade her to allow me to obtain the seeds I required. However, to do so I had to rely on some unorthodox methods." The illusionary sphere above Itori's hand showed how the tenko had entered the valley only to be assaulted by Nenet in her full phoenix form, the nine-tailed fox relying on her magic barriers to keep Nenet's flames at bay until the phoenix left for seemingly no reason.

    "After she realized what I had done Nenet sought me out. At first she wished to resume the fight, unsatisfied with the conclusion. However, eventually she explained that, as much as the encounter got on her nerves, she found my abilities interesting. After that she... simply decided to remain with me rather than returning to her nest." The sphere faded away as Itori folded her arms inside her sleeves once more. "All things considered it was a simple chain of events. However, as much as I wish that Nenet could be a bit more cautious and reserved at times, I would not deny that she is a pleasant companion."

    In the distance more flames flared up on the pirate ship, now close enough that one could easily hear the sounds of people in distress. Itori's ear flicked again, and she sighed. "I do hope that she leaves the ship in whole enough a state that those brigands can sail away after she loses interest. Otherwise we may have to take them captive."

    The Divine Mage

    As the two were waiting on Nenet, and Itori commented on how the phoenix wouldn’t be bested by bandits and that they wouldn't be able to overwhelm her, the tarot mage glanced over and nodded. She didn’t think they would at all either. She pushes a lock of her hair over her ear and let her attention be fully on the kitsune as she was told of how the two met. She let her burnt sienna eyes eye the sphere showed her what happened. She was amazed by the things the kitsune could do, smiling at the sphere as it played the scene before her. She glanced over towards the ocean again as the fiery light came. She was a bit concerned, but Itori seeming unphased got her a little calmed down, and she listened once more. She seemed a bit in awe as she watched the ‘fight’ that Nenet and Itori had. A small snort came from her lips at the end result of the encounter.

    The ship being closer got her attention once again, and she frowned at the distressed sounds from these bandits. She shrugged her shoulders after Itori wished the ship would be intact. “Honestly, we may have to still hold them captive… especially if they seem like they’re not going to give up.” She murmurs as she pinches the bridge of her nose under her glasses bridge. This almost seemed inevitable with how the fight was sounding, despite them seeming like they were losing.

    “Save the rum! Save the rum!” Someone aboard the ship tried shouting before a shattering sound came. There was plenty of guesses as to what happened to that rum after that noise from the ship.

    Gaia started to grow concerned as she looked down at the water where Knight Pachua had let his head pop up out of the water. His blue eyes were visible and he turned his head towards the ship Gaia was on before lifting his head a little more to speak. “Wish for me to go and assist?” His voice was a little gurgly from the water, but Gaia nodded regardless and watched as her water dragon started swimming towards where the ship was with Nenet.

    The tarot mage glanced over to Itori, raising an eyebrow curiously. “How well does Nenet get along with others like Pachua? Water beings?” She was half tempted to call the dragon back in case Nenet didn’t need his help, or wouldn’t accept it. The two were literally at opposite ends of the spectrum, but at least Pachua wasn’t a King or Queen of the chalices. They would probably have a bit more of an attitude with the phoenix.

    Noya had lifted her head and glanced between the two female women, then back behind them around the ship before back towards the ship in the distance. The creature was curious about how long it would take them to get to the islands, but also wanted to see how the fight was going too. Despite the ferrets' species apparent origins being that of quick savanging on their home planet of Tetsukazu, Noya was pretty interested in being able to fight and sneak in and out for scouting or surprise attacks. The ferret started to go down to her masters tarot pouch once again, startling the summoner for a moment.

    “Noya! Calm down a little! Just wait before I pull another card!” She softly hisses to the ferret, but she was more worried. She wasn’t wanting to over do it with her magic, not yet. She may need more later at the very least. It would be wise to not burn all her magic before it’s desperately needed.

    Post by Itori 6/19/2021, 10:12 pm

    Itori was glad that Gaia was enjoying the story, true as it was. Aside from being quite amusing in a way, how she only met Nenet because the phoenix happened to be aggressive within her territory, only to then abandon said territory to follow Itori around, it was a way to keep the two of them occupied while Nenet did her work clearing out the pirate ship. There didn't appear to be any powerful entities on that ship, so they could trust the phoenix to be able to handle it... although whether she ship would still be intact was a different question entirely. For that, they'd have to rely on fate itself to deliver the answer.

    "It would be safe to assume that anyone who fails to admit that they are outmatched will be incapacitated by Nenet. While she does sincerely enjoying toying with her prey, she remains aware of what our objective is, and would not tolerate these pirates to remain a threat after she has lost interest in them." The tenko looked back towards the ship in the distance. "Truthfully, their apparent weakness is a blessing in disguise. Nenet can be quite lethal when facing adversaries who pose a serious threat, but with those significantly weaker than herself she is usually careful to not go overboard." She might give the pirates broken bones and scorched skin, but probably nothing that they couldn't recover from.

    After the rum was spilled there was a flare from the pirate ship as it quickly ignited, which caused the situation onboard to go from problematic to dangerous. Most of the pirates were beginning to abandon ship at this point, jumping into the water where at least Nenet's flames couldn't reach them so easily. Of course, not soon after this Gaia gave her summons permission to go and aid the phoenix, so those pirates who were seeking refuge in the water were now facing a water dragon. Their response, understandably so, was to try and get out of the dragon's way, clinging to barrels and life buoys to remain adrift. Some of them had also managed to lower a rowboat, but it couldn't really hold all of them.

    Itori frowned lightly as she considered the question posed to her, but then shook her head. "It should be of little concern. Nenet may be kin of fire, due to her nature as a phoenix, but as long as they don't try to extinguish her flames she would not be biased against them. Of course, given that a water being may extinguish her flames accidentally... we shall have to hope that Sir Pichu is careful in his assistance." She gave an amused smile as Gaia's smaller companion, Noya, tried to get to the tarot mage's summoning cards. "Thankfully, I believe we shall not have to wait much longer before we can resume our journey."

    On the pirate ship Nenet was facing the captain and the first mate, seemingly the only ones who hadn't jumped overboard yet. While they weren't immune to their flames the first mate could use water magic, which kept the worst at bay. The captain, meanwhile, was wielding a magical blade which produced a substance the phoenix was suspicious of: it burned, which was good, but even if it wasn't ignited it caused a hissing sound when it hit the wooden deck. With the first mate acting as support the captain was advancing with complex sword techniques, Nenet doing her best to dodge them while also attempting to land a blazing punched which wasn't quickly extinguished by the first mate. She'd go for the first mate, but the captain wasn't giving her the opportunity to switch targets or fly overhead. "Come on then, try to actually hit me!" Yet she was having fun, as the grin on her face made clear.

    The Divine Mage

    After being assured that the phoenix wouldn’t harm those who weren’t too bad of a threat, the tarot mage would nod slowly as she liked the sound of that. She would like as little casualties as possible if she could. She watched a bit as the dragon swam over to the boat when she gave the go ahead, and sighs as she honestly felt like a sitting duck aboard the ship, not even assisting as much as she probably could on land. She looked over to Itori once again, and nodded. “Pachua would honestly only extinguish enough flames for him to get in there and use his abilities, though I do believe he would work with the waters and what he has now.” She nodded once again though when Itori also mentioned that they could resume their journey soon. It was only a matter of time.

    In the water, Pachua is able to swim rather fast. He swims up to the pirates who got overboard, and starts swimming in a circle around them. No way was he going to let them even attempt to run away. After the dragon dove under a few times, a couple of them tried to get out of where the dragon corralled them and tried to get away from the area, only to be met face to face with the dragon, who’s face growled in theirs before they ran back to their crewmates and huddled together where the dragon had them. They didn’t dare try testing the dragon's wrath, even when they were sure it was circling under them under the water. The dragon made his way up onto the ship, noticing the water of the first mate, and the burning blade of the captain?

    He saw the grin on the phoenix’s face, and seemed to almost sigh. “The wizards are getting closer to their destination. Would it be alright for you to wrap up?” He glanced over to where his rounded up group of drunks were, they at least were watching the waters for him, and not this ship that they abandoned. He then looked towards the water mage before him. Would they be the easiest for him to deal with? He still had his cup clasped between his claws, having even been swimming with it as he rounded up the pirates. He held it up and was ready to start tilting it over towards the first mate, but was waiting to be sure that Nenet wouldn’t stop him first, letting his eye glance towards her to be sure before he did anything.

    If she were to give him the go ahead and not fight the first mate herself he’d finish tilting the cup till it was completely at the first mate to blast out a rush of water at them.

    "Nenet might appear carefree, but she is not unintelligent. She would be aware that a dragon who is kin of water would not find any comfort in her fire and extinguish any flames obstructing their path. And Sir Pachua is an ally, so she would have no reason to take offence or perceive it as aggression." Having allies with close bonds to different elements could get tricky depending on their personalities and the way said elements interacted, but Itori trusted Nenet to not throw a fit at the water dragon getting rid of some of the fires she'd started so he could move freely. After all, even a dragon couldn't just brush off a phoenix's flame with all its mystical properties.

    With Pachua swiftly gathering all the pirates who'd abandoned the ship the only targets left to deal with were the captain and the first mate. Their combination was making it difficult for Nenet to get in and punch their lights out, but at the same time they weren't managing to drive her off either. The current situation was a stalemate, and the moment Pachua showed up that stalemate was broken. Nenet rolled her eyes as Pachua asked her to wrap things up. "Fine, fine. Help me out and we can put an end to this." The captain and the first mate didn't look happy at how casually they were dismissed, but both of them knew that facing a phoenix and a dragon at the same time was bad news, even if neither of the mythical beings were taking the fight very seriously.

    Nenet took the opportunity and dashed forward even as Pachua threatened the first mate with his cup. Once he released his own stream of water the first mate tried to block it, but the dragon's deluge was stronger than what he could withstand, driving him back even as he tried to maintain his footing. The captain, now without the first mate's backup, performed several slashes to keep Nenet out of striking range, but now that she no longer had to fear the first mate's water magic Nenet jumped over the captain's hissing blade. Spinning vertically in the air she kicked the captain's hands with enough force that the sword was wrested from her grasp, and upon landing Nenet spun horizontally to kick the sword away.

    The captain raised her fists to try and grapple Nenet. The phoenix, having other planes, knocked the captain's arms aside with her blazing wings. With the captain's weak spots wide open Nenet first punched her opponent straight in the guts, then when the captain doubled over Nenet followed up with an uppercut which sent the poor human flying until she collapsed in a heap on the deck. "There we go! Now for the last one!" She grinned as she advanced on the first mate, who was still desperately trying to maintain his footing. The dragon's torrent was threatening to launch him right off of the ship, but so far he was barely holding on.

    That ended when Nenet knocked his feet out from under him with a low roundhouse kick. The first mate barely had time to register what had happened before he flew off of the deck and into the ocean. Nenet laughed, then grabbed the captain and tossed her overboard as well. "All right then, let's go back to the others. Good job buddy." She gave Pachua a wink and a thumbs up before spreading her wings and leaving the ship behind. The ship, with all its crew overboard, continued to burn merrily. Another person might be worried about what would happen to the pirates, but Nenet figured that they'd be all right. The first mate was pretty much unharmed, after all, and having a water mage with you made surviving on the ocean a lot easier, especially if you weren't that far away from inhabited land.

    Returning to the ship Gaia and Itori were on Nenet called out before landing. "That was fun! Found anything yet?"
