Continuation from Last Mission
The sea monster latched on to Arcadia as she, in her large dragon form began to pull to try and drag the sea monster outt of the water-- but to no avail as it was either very heavy or something else. Though the only boon to her tactic was while she distracted it, its tentacles left the shore-side cliff to give Zachary a chance to act. Tama kept guard, the elegant, regal fox swishing her tail back and forth in patience as she kept close to Zachary for his protection. She was surprisingly protective of him, seeing herself as a loyal guardian.
Aquila was safe as well, the eagle soaring just above reach and over Arcadia in a large dragon form. He was surprised how she just appeared like that. "Whooo-boy. Remind me not to piss off that lady," Aquila cawed teasingly.
"That be a first," Zachary wisecracked back as he held his keys firmly. With Arcadia now trying to restrain the creature, it was time for them to go on the offensive. A smile appeared on his face. Now was the time to show Arkadia his true talent as a Celestial Wizard. "Arcadia, check this out!" Zachary said as he held up his key of Aquila . He looked up to his eagle spirit. "You ready for a power-up, Aquila?"
An excited cry came from Aquila, knowing what the boy was referring to. Though at first, all his spirits were a bit reserved, but since Aquila was one of the originals to try it-- his opinion changed and he actually liked it."Yeah! Hit me, Z-boy!"
Zachary extended his key up high and aimed at Aquila. "O Gate of the Eagle, I call upon you. Open your threshold once more," Zachary called out, a magic circle of Celestial Magic appearing below him as he channeled his magic into the key and spoke the words. The light began to increase, growing stronger. Slowly, using the key, Zachary drew a patter in the air, specks of light trailing behind it to form a 'constellation'-- Aquila's own in fact. "Fill this champion with your light, shine and transcend the spirit within!"
Once the constellation was drawn-- Zachary slashed the key into it, casting the specks of light forward towards Aquila.
An excited cry of energy came from Aquila as the lights circled him, and began to draw closer to him, his whole form starting to shimmer with light. The lights alligned to where his own stars would be, and his form began to become translucent for a bit.
With the key aimed still to Aquila, Zachary spoke the final words to the spell. "Aquila-- STELLAR EVOLUTION!!"
Aquila let another cry as magical electricity sparked off him with the sudden surge of magic into him. His body became fully-starry as if he became a shadow, then flashed with a brilliant magic that would dazzle most. The light became a cackle of energy that went wild with his cry, and after a few seconds-- Aquila emerged from the lightning, his form transformed!
The eagle's feathers had changed, having gone from brown to a brilliant white with specks of 'stars' that dotted parts of his body. His form had become far more Celestial than before, armoring now over his wings, crown and talons. All the while, lightning crackled off his body with each beat of his wings. He was completely different from before, now supercharged with renewed magic power.
This was Zachary's unique talent. As most Celestial Wizard's strength was determined by the number of spirits they could summon at once, his was the special ability to use his magic to somehow transform and make his spirits stronger using his own magic to tap into their own gates-- acting like a floodgate to grant them more power from their own stars. It was an art that Zachary was proud to invent on his own, and made him stand out more than most Celestial Wizards.
"Aquila's back-- and fully charged, baby!!" he shouted, boasting his new form with pride. "The lady birds love da thunder!"
Tama who watched on, let her awe fade with the bird's same blow-heart personality. "Keep dreaming, bird-brain..." the fox signed.
Meanwhile, the Krakken's reach was starting to try and bind up more of Arcadia's dragon body, and reaching more for her wings which would have been bad.
