    Something that came with his job of protecting the peace was going out an investigating rumors and things that might cause harm onto the people. Since he had joined the Rune Knights however, he had been assigned and taken on mission after mission that may not be where a rookie should be placed. First, he went on a job where he had to stop a notorious pirate from transporting slaves, then went on an investigation that led to an adventure that… is a little too complicated to get into. His third mission as a Rune Knight had been assigned to him that morning though and not to his surprise, it was another extremely dangerous job.

    He read the file in his hand as he boarded the train to the mountain village. It seemed like he was going on a job where he would have to defeat a demon that was mutating the insects around the Phoenix Mountains and causing them to grow to the size of a human. What made it even worse was that the insects got the ability to use toxins. Aiden thought about what the insects might do if they reached people caused his heart to beat faster. He couldn’t let that happen.

    Also, in the report, it was expressed that he would be joined by another mage from a legal guild. It was not disclosed who would be joining him but he was wearing his Rune Knight uniform so it shouldn’t be too hard to spot him out of everyone else.

    When the train reached the town, he would immediately head for the entrance to the mountains, using the map that was given to him in the report. He would wait at the entrance to the mountains though to see if his partner would come to help.

    Luna's present appearance:
    Toxic Insects [Job-Luceam] Th?id=OIP.QTpUoYHZdwSymR82RJcfqwHaL2&w=187&h=300&c=8&o=5&pid=1

    Through the lens of her Smart knew Holographic glasses, Luna studied the information she had mailed to her through the Lacrima Net as it came in an audio form reading out the file describing the situation as she held a loose grip of the reigns of the saddle on the dark mustang. It was not uncommon for certain wizards to be called onto a job, usually due to their reputation or good standing with many individuals. In Luna's experience there were typically three main reasons for this, first of all is if the job is urgent and needs to be taken care of swiftly and can't afford to wait for a mage to take the job. Second is sometimes a job requires a specific specialty and calling out known mages with that skill set can save a lot of time, and in rare times the price. Thirdly and what Luna is suspecting the case, when a job is dangerous but initially taken on by someone that is lowly estimated and the clients want assurance that the job will be taken care of properly. Luna came to this conclusion after she read the information she had available regarding a demon enhancing and mutating various insects posing a threat.

    Meanwhile Amelia was riding in the buggy the horse was pulling laying with her crossed arms behind her head and her feet up on the side railing. "So what, are we on babysitting duty or are we responding to a actual threat?" the artificial life form said before letting out a yawn. Luna shrugged as she had no clue. "Well the file says a name but not someone we've heard of, and the affluent locals did ask for me and the Rune Knights didn't object. But no one dismissed either motif as the bugs are a real threat regardless." Luna said as she did not want to take any stance so soon. "Well, you'd think they'd call a demon slayer instead of a god slayer." Luna groaned at the implication, while there was no one around to listen she did not want the news to be made public so soon yet. Amelia shrugged off Luna's reaction and kept on with her thought. "Either way, hope he doesn't take it hard, you never know with these military types. There are a few that see legal guild mages as undisciplined liabilities."

    Luna sighed as she was getting annoyed with the Gynoid's theory or take on the matter. "That's a bit overdramatic. Besides officially the Rune Knights are similar to legal guilds. But let's not count this guy out, perhaps the reason I was called was just cause I was in the neighborhood." She said as she recalled the earlier business she had in Beanstalk village. "Right, you're brother's girl's parents wanted to meet his family, but that is a bleeding mess so started with you."  Amelia put bluntly as silence greeted her in response as the horse continued on the path.

    Luna thought on the scenario and how things were incredibly awkward at first given that her directly younger brother Leon wasn't always in contact since he left River Village. "Well the meeting should've been postponed, Leon barely has had any time to process that our mother is alive, a fairy, and we have another sister, and the change in relationship. Don't get me wrong I like Ema, she's a good woman for Leon, but she shouldn't have let her parents force Leon into something like this. I'm just glad they are at least decent people and understanding once I explained the whole thing."

    Luna said as she remembered her her brother's timid nature. Leon had social anxiety that was incredibly unpredictable, sometimes he was able to barely hold a conversation on his best day, and sometimes he could barely say three words at a time on his worst, he always used his various art forms as a means of releasing the anxiety and often as a way to commune with others. Luna remembered doing all she could in the past to try and help him be comfortable with socializing and expressing himself.

    Midway into the meeting she got the call that she was wanted on this particular job to work with the upcoming Rune Knight. All she knew from the official was that his character was not in question, but rather given the urgency and dangers did warrant the official wanting some reassurance.

    Eventually Luna saw on the map in the corner of the HUD that she was approaching the meetup point with the Rune Knight, and as she closed in she began to see the individual. The horse slowed down as it got closer to the man before coming to a stop. 

    Luna removed her smart glasses, folding them and hanging the frame off the collar of her blouse as she softly smiled towards Aiden. "Aiden Ainsley? I'm Luna Mira, a Sabertooth mage called to assist you on this job." Luna lifted one leg over before slowly getting off the horse before unclipping her purse from the side. Meanwhile the artificial life form lazily fell out of the buggy and merely dusted the dirt off herself as she stood up. "I'm Amelia Thorn, Luna's platonic life companion and work wife. Not associated with any guild personally."

    Luna sighed as she knew Amelia was doing, trying to avoid making it look like Luna's enslaving another sentient being by addressing herself as a gynoid immediately but she did not want to pick up that same old argument at the moment. Luna reached inside her purse and pulled out a carrot offering it to the horse who graciously accepted as Luna followed it by pulling out a small wad of bills. "Thanks for the sudden service Gus, here's for my tab and keep change as a tip." Luna said before sliding the wad into a pouch on the saddle. The horse happily neighed before telepathically communing to Luna "Always a pleasure miss, regular customers like you give this business a good vibe." before the horse turned around slowly, waiting until the buggy was all the way around before bolting off at high speed.

    Luna turned around back to face the tall knight she was tasked to work with. "Forgive my unprofessional appearance, my more appropriate attire is at the tailors or seamstress and I was not expecting to be called in, and I wouldn't even have the time to get ready considering I was called last night and I was barely in the area." Luna said before she opened her senses towards the mountain range. "But this shouldn't be a hard task, should be out in time for supper."

    Amelia rolled her eyes. "Doesn't that watch thing you got from Magnolia give you the ability to go to a space station and return at the same time you left?" She said gesturing towards the Infinite Improbability Chronometer. Luna bit her lip as she was starting to get annoyed by Amelia at times. "Again, aside from my gear and tools not on my person, which at the moment is just Zygmunt, nothing there to grab." Amelia threw her hands up ready to start another argument but she gave up. "Just saying, if you can stop time to go to a space station, you can't say you don't have time to change clothes."

    Luna dismissed the argument of the gynoid as she returned her focus to the task at hand. "Anyways, Aiden, I'm aware of the task and the stakes. Ready to go when you are." She said with graceful confidence.

    Aiden looked up when he heard the voice of the girl who introduced herself as Luna. He gave her and her companion a shy smile and bowed his head slightly. “It’s nice to meet you both.” He said, not necessarily making eye contact. He was never the best at talking to people, and he was always a little nervous meeting a new person.

    When it came to her appearance though, Aiden didn’t necessarily have a problem with it, not really even noticing it until she brought it up. He shook his head “Ah, uhm… It’s okay, I’m not one to care about that. The only reason I wear mine when I’m out on duty is so that people know that someone is there to protect them…” he said and gave her a soft, warm smile. “Usually they send a Rune Knight… but I’m excited to get to work with someone outside my affiliation again…”

    He watched the two argue for a while, giving Aiden enough time to judge the two people in front of him. He laughed softly. They seemed like they got along great and there was something about her partner that wasn’t human, making a mental note to find an answer later. When she would turn to him and say she was ready to go, Aiden nodded, stretching a little before motioning. “Let’s go.” He said before heading into the mountain territory.

    After walking for a little bit, he would reach a point where the mountains where the rocks were all around him. What would Que him in on the fact they were heading in the right direction was when he heard a buzzing from over his head. Looking up, he could see three greenish looking beetles descending before them. They were a mixture of green and black, the buzzing only being made louder by their size.

    He immediately took a few jumps back in order to avoid being landed on by the beetles that were now standing before them. They clicked and rubbed their bug like claws. Aiden got into a defensive stance as he looked at his enemy. “Must be some of the weaker soldiers. Probably were patrolling and came here to stop us from advancing.” He said, analyzing the situation slowly. “We’re probably heading in the right direction!” he concluded, nodding to his companions.

    He then turned to his enemies and bowed “I’m sorry about this…” he muttered as he closed his eyes, arcs of orange flames and reddish plasma starting to come out of his hands, forming into long, giant whips of plasma and flames. The whips hung in the air, separating into three in total. This would all happen in a matter of seconds, bringing down the three whips onto the demons in front of him.

    Opening his eyes, he could see that all three whips had locked on correctly and went down, the bugs being a bit caught off guard to know what was happening. He was unsure if this would happen again though as they focused fully on the mages now.




    HP:300   WC:510
    MP: 270  TWC: 2,074

    Enemies Spawned:
    Weak: Bombardier Demon x3 (Each hit with one C-rank)

    Solar Whips:
    Name: Solar Whip
    Rank: C
    MP Cost: 30 MP
    Category: Offensive
    Type: Multiple Target
    Damage: 45 HP
    Range: 90 Meters
    Speed:  65 Meters Per Second
    Duration: 1 Post
    Downside: Spell is very target and hit, leaving no room for controlling the whips. Once they have their targets they can’t change.
    Description: Plasma and flames come together in a long, whip-like formation. The whip then splits off from the main one into five different whips, arching off of each other. The whips will fall down and attempt to crash into the enemies at C-rank speed, each one being large enough to do one C-rank damage to each opponent it hits (if they do), up to five. To avoid this spell you could counter the whips by using a defense spell that block C-rank or higher, move out of the range, or hit the whips with a C-rank or higher spell.

    "Wow. Never before have I seen such a conundrum. This guy really doesn't inspire confidence does he, no wonder we were called." Amelia said as she read the behavior of the Rune Knight. Luna mentally grunted in response as she wanted to disagree with him but she herself studied the body language the man exuded almost no presence of himself. "Amelia you're being too hard on the guy." Luna communed sympathetically regarding the man, trying not to judge him so soon. She knew that even for a telepath, it takes more then two minutes to really sum up a person for all their qualities. "You're probably right, let's see him in the face of danger. Clearly he had to be worth his salt if he wears the Rune Knight uniform. Probably just shy around the ladies."

    Luna remained calm on the outside as the man explained himself and why he was wearing the uniform and informing that this was slightly outside the normal standard of partnership for him. "Well, I see. Normally I am not called for jobs unless someone is expecting dire injuries. I'm a healing specialist by nature, while this form appears human, I'm actually only about, maybe two point five percent human. I'm actually a Nature Fairy."

    As the group carried down the path Luna and Amelia stayed a few steps behind the Rune Knight, carefully monitoring their pace as they remained cautious of the situation around the group. Luna had a feeling that they were being watched, but the slayer's senses of hearing, magic, and even the corrupted life force of the three massive bugs were alerted well before they got close. Luna was about to say something but Amelia quickly and silently covered Luna's mouth with her left hand and wrapped her arm around Luna's side. "What are you doing?! My senses-" She tried to commune before Amelia quickly communed louder. "Are sharper then his, look, he doesn't know yet!"

    Amelia jumped back and to the side into the trees silently as the bugs got closer, Luna watched as something she caught onto seven seconds prior just reached the attention of the Rune Knight as the three bugs descended towards him. Luna could see what Amelia was doing at this point as she was testing Aiden's reaction, speed, and power. "So he's a fire and energy based mage. Luna however kept her eyes open as she watched Aiden's fire whips hit the bug creatures but more importantly she watched as he closed his eyes. "Oh Shirain." She thought as she the spell was being cast. "His eyes! Does he want to die?!".

    Luna carefully watched the bodies of the insects, specifically the diaphragms and as Aiden's spell was being cast Luna recognized the movements of the creatures and sensing their intent, Luna knew they were about to spew, and whatever it was, poison or acid, would prove to be painful for the Rune Knight. Feeling like she had no other option Luna shrugged off Amelia and dashed forward as Aiden opened his eyes, and all three insects released a dark green liquid from their mouth at Aiden.  Luna pointed her hand forward as a purple seed shot out from between her left middle and ring finger knuckles and into the ground, burrowing itself before quickly sprouting into a pumpkin vine. As the plant was halfway through the maturity, all the acid seemed to stop mid air before got absorbed into the plant before it fully grew into a dark purple pumpkin.

    "Aiden get back! It's gonna blow!" Luna said as the purple pumpkin was pulsating, four seconds later almost cracking until it exploded releasing a wave of a black boiling liquid out at the three insects. The boiling venom fused with the unholy element of God Slayer magic washed over the insects, there was the sound of their clicking getting intense for a moment as they suffered intense pain before one by one the movement slowed until it ultimately ceased, their bodies melting and deforming as they became grotesque sights that were far from recognizable. "Well, a few faces not even a insect queen could love, also not to doubt your abilities with reviving the dead, but I don't think you can work with this mess Luna. Kudos on turning their venom into a worse poison." Amelia said as she walked out of the woods, looking down and even the artificial senses were repulsed by the scent. "I wish my makers didn't give me such a good sense of smell, or at least gave me the off switch." She complained out loud, Luna sighed and rolled her eyes. "You say that about everything, but you know that most of your systems are intertwined and if you shut down one subroutine you gotta shut down them all. Artificial Lifeforms, they always have something to complain about their makers."

    Amelia sighed before she looked back at Aiden, approaching him with a disappointed stare. "You got a death wish, or are you just plain ignorant?" Luna bit her lip as she gave Amelia a stare of annoyance to which Amelia brushed off the statemnt Luna wanted to make before she spoke aloud. "Oh don't give me that stare Luna, he left himself literally blind to an attack so he could attack in vein." Amelia sighed, rubbing the bridge of her nose as she tried to figure out how to address the man. "An energy elemental mage that closes their eyes to strike is a fool. In that instant Luna saw them preparing to use their venom to poison you, and had she not been in the nick of time who knows what you'd be suffering by now, becoming a liability"

    Luna looked at the venom that coated the three shriveled bodies and the ground as she clenched her fist, focusing on the earth as the dirt and rocks shook before splitting into two, moving aside all the venom soaked earth and the bodies clearing the path. "Probably burning sensation and dizziness, maybe vomiting and nausea." Luna explained. Amelia sighed in response as she was being rhetorical earlier. "Anyways. You need to learn to cast with your eyes open, or give up on living." Amelia said before she started to keep on walking, Luna sighed. "Sorry about Amelia, she's just, set in her ways of tough love." Hearing Luna's words, Amelia responded. "We're here to help not hold his hand! If he can't do the most basic thing about fire casting, he's already dead."

    Luna grunted as she stared at the gynoid. Amelia, way too harsh! He's not that bad and you don't need to insult him like that!" Luna projected through the Archive Link. "He needs to learn that a screw up means death somehow."

    He watched as he was saved right in the nick of time. As soon as she told him to get out of the way he did, he ran back as fast as he could, just barely reaching out of the range of the blast. He stood there heavily breathing for a second “T-Thank you” he said, bowing his head towards Luna. After everything had died down, he was ready to continue onwards but was met with a long-winded lecture from Amelia. She asked if he was ignorant and he quickly shook his head “No I-“ he would be cut off by the next statement about him becoming a liability. He didn’t say anything after that, he just lowered his head and nodded.

    One thing that he hated doing was failing. He wasn’t really that skilled of a fighter, not really even having been in a real fight before joining the Rune Knights. He wanted to make the world a peaceful place and make his father and mother proud of him, even after their death. He couldn’t afford to fail and yet here he was, making mistakes he didn’t even think about beforehand.

    Luna was apologizing for Amelia’s words and he just shook his head “No. She’s right. I need to do better. I apologize.” He said, in a very calm yet sad voice. “If I’m being honest, I am a new recruit. I joined the Rune Knights, but I had never been in a fight beforehand. I’m still very inexperienced but I am learning.” He said to Amelia before turning to Luna and looking at the ground again, avoiding eye contact “An- and I apologize for being a hinderance… Thanks you for saving me…” he muttered quietly “It won’t happen again.” He turned away.

    He was a bit more determined now that he had failed once, he wasn’t about to fail again. He now felt the need to prove that he had at least some potential to these mages. It was a fire he had deep in his chest.

    As he continued down the cavern, he would try to make conversation with the two “So… How did you two meet?” he said, looking around at his surroundings. He was trying to best to stay cool and normal, but it was obvious that he was anything but. He could tell that Amelia wasn’t a huge fan of him, but he wanted to see if he could become likable or maybe even friends by the end of the day. He wasn’t the most social person ever so friends were hard to come by so when he was out on jobs he would always try his best to become acquaintances or friends with his partners.
