Title: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 14, 2018, 04:05:57 PM
I feel like it took me forever to start this RP, as I couldn't put together the proper colourful prose to weave into the plot description. But then I thought, hey, it's not like Superheroes had a plot.... at all. So here we are!

The year is 1541, and our characters all have a big secret that we're trying to keep hidden, for fear of being ostracized, attacked, or even killed: we all have superpowers. Strange and wonderful abilities that are the direct result of our heritage, as we are all descended from gods.

And that's really about it. As I mentioned in the RP discussions thread, this story will take place in the same universe as Superheroes, although you don't have to have been in that RP to join this one. As well we'll mainly be focusing on Greek mythology for this one, although I'm sure we'll be running in to a few Romans as time goes on. If people are still interested I'll post a card, and answer any questions 'cause I know this was brief and I just want to get this show on the road!

Name: Mateline Thomine Verace
Age: 21
Godly Heritage: Hades
Powers: can see peoples innermost fears and exploit them, when she gets emotional she can conjure blue flames, speaks to ghosts
Appearance: straight black hair that’s about shoulder length, icy blue eyes, a very fair complexion, she sticks to darker coloured clothing that she tailors herself to fit her petite body, as she only stands at about 5”2’. Her lips are naturally a deep pink shade and her face is round and cherubic.
Personality: Mostly unbothered, but she can come off a bit mean and harsh, not that she’s trying. She’s a bit of a loner due to her powers, but she desperately wants some kind of belonging. She can be hard to get along with, but is fiercely loyal.
Backstory/ Other: Her mother died when she was young and was brought up by her Aunt and Uncle. She always had attitude issues, but when we started seeing the ghost of her mother, the issues started growing to a whole new level. When she was old enough, she left home to work as a seamstress and keep to herself, not bothering to contact her family after that, not wanting to put them in danger for knowing about her powers. She doesn’t know where her powers come from, only that they exist.

Quick question: is there a particular country where this is set? I know Superheroes took place all over the world at times, but I kinda assumed it was US-centered

Update: I have a Hades child but I'm struggling to name her and so this might take a hot minute

Update on the update: no, she's just friends with Hades... I'll explain later. I think she may be Athena's child.

Update on the update on the update: I forgot Athena's a virgin. Back to the drawing board.

4th Update: think I got her
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 15, 2018, 10:16:59 AM
Somewhere in Europe... haven't figured that out yet. Maybe in the UK? Or whatever
And okay if Mara also wants to play a Hades kid then I'm gonna put a stopper on that now, cause I also have a character with a bad ass story that's gonna be a Hades kid sooooo yeah. Three hell children is enough for now :P


Also, in the original RP we had descendants of Athena so you could be
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 15, 2018, 10:18:25 AM
After everything, my character is a Zeus child, but Hades has taken a fancy to her. I'm working out the kinks in the backstory now
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 15, 2018, 10:38:34 AM
Name: Casiel
Age: 23 (Approx.)
Godly Heritage: Hades (possibly Persephone as well? But that's to be determined :p). Also, he has no idea that he's a demigod
Powers: Mediumship, enhanced agility, wall-crawling, and the power to alter people's memories
Appearance: He appears fairly unassuming: not too tall, yet not short either, with an average build. His fair skin is relatively tan from working outside, and his messy hair and eyes are also quite dark. He keeps himself clean-shaven, but is capable of growing a full beard within a week if he wanted to.
Personality: A true rebel by heart, he is constantly at odds with authority while he stands up "for the little guy". He can be quite clever and is all-around not a bad guy, although there is a sort of aloof sadness to him as he feels deep down like there's a part of him missing.
Backstory/ Other: Casiel's life is shrouded in mystery: 2 years prior to the start of the rp he washed up on the shore of a busy ocean-side village, with very few memories to speak of: all he could remember was his first name, that he had strange abilities, and that he sought revenge on someone. Who that person is, unfortunately, he has no idea...
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 15, 2018, 10:44:21 AM
Name:
Elisha Regina (born Elisha Moray)

Age:
20

Godly Heritage:
Zeus. She is well aware that she is a demigod. She favours her uncle, Hades.

Powers:
-Wields electricity
-Has control over air
-Gifted immortality

Appearance:
Exceptionally beautiful, Elisha has an olive complexion, golden hazel eyes, and wavy dark brown hair. She tends to dress all in black, as most of her work is done at night, and she wants to be as unseen as possible. She sleeps in the day, but if she does go out (potentially to scope out her prey), you wouldn’t be able to tell that she was different from the rest as she blends in well.

Personality:
Elisha has issues to say the least. She’s cold, and though she can imitate very well the people she’s around in order to be accepted into society, she is very calculating. That doesn’t mean she’s evil though; when she decides she loves you, she loves fiercely, going to any lengths (literally any) to keep that person safe. She is haunted because she feels she could not to this for her mother, and so now she will protect anyone she thinks needs it. This is often very flawed though, as she sees through the lens of her own experience.


Backstory: *NOTE: I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE THIS THING IS LONG*
Elisha was born to Lady Moray, an English noblewoman, after her brief affair with Zeus (disguised as a poor townsman). Lord Moray was immediately suspicious of her upon her birth, as both he and his wife were fair in complexion and hair, and the child had a more olive tone with brown hair, closer to Zeus’s chosen mortal form. As such, he was never particularly warm towards her, though he did care for her financially on the off chance that she was his child. Once Elisha grew older, it became more evident that she was not Lord Moray’s daughter, as she didn’t resemble him at all, and only barely resembled her mother. She was exceptionally beautiful, and this drew more attention to the family. Finally, Lord Moray openly accused his wife of cheating on him, and she was set to death for disgracing him. Before she died, Elisha was able to see her once more, at which point Lady Moray confessed the truth about Elisha’s parentage.

Once Lady Moray was killed, Elisha was disowned by Lord Moray and was left to be on her own. Missing her mother dearly and aching for a parent to comfort her, she called upon her father, Zeus, but to no avail. Things became dire for Elisha, and soon, she found herself starving and on the brink of death, because nobody wanted to help a disgraced child of an affair. It was only then that Zeus came to her in his mortal form, and explained that he could not help her, that Hera had banned it. This is what began Elisha’s deep hatred for Hera. He leaves her then with nothing else, and though she tries to reach out to him repeatedly, he never answers her again.

A year or so later, Lord Moray is appointed general of the King’s army. He remarried and was expecting another child. Elisha watches him from afar, angry that he could move on so easily, and that she could not. She’s mixing some herbs (she luckily found work as an assistant at an apothecary so that she could support herself over the past year) when she realizes that she could just kill him. The herbs that she is mixing is a very potent drug used for pain management, but she could slip a high dose into his drink and kill him. She steals the herbs and manages to get so far as to his cup, sprinkle the herbs in, but is discovered and brought down to the dungeons. Lord Moray sentences her to death.

Elisha is to be publicly hung, but while she’s standing on the step about to be dropped, lightning strikes from nowhere, hitting the pole she was tied to directly. When she is still standing, the townspeople begin accusing her of witchcraft and chaos breaks out. Elisha escapes through a series back alleyways that she grew up running through, only to be caught by Lord Moray. When he is about to kill her, he begins to asphyxiate, and she has the realization that she is the one in control of it. She tells him that she will let him live if he apologizes, and he does, but she kills him anyway.

Elisha spent the next few years on the run, developing her newly awakened powers. On the high of killing Lord Moray, she kills others who she believes deserves it, though her kills are sloppy. Still, she gets away with it, and her kill count rises. This garners the attention of Hades, who then comes to her in mortal form and teaches her how to better wield her powers. Hades’s attention on her brings Zeus’s attention back on her, but she disowns Zeus as a parent, as he never cared for her. Over time, Hades offers Elisha the gift of immortality, so long as she continues to send fresh souls to the Underworld.

Other:
Elisha was born Elisha Moray, but after she was disowned and discovered her godly parentage, she took on the name Regina, as she felt that she was a queen of sorts.


A/N: this is entirely me and so Rai can veto this since it's her RP, but the vibes I get from Elisha and Hades is like cross between creepy uncle-niece and weirdly good sexual chemistry.

Other A/N: Rai if this doesn't fit well in the universe, let me know
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 15, 2018, 12:35:14 PM
Well Hades did marry his niece so it fits :p I'm not sure about the whole 'sending souls to the underworld' bit, but it does take place almost 500 years ago so we can just say his personality and whatnot are a little different :p
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 15, 2018, 12:36:29 PM
So it's a yes or a no? I kinda went off the idea of Hades wanting to make the Underworld like the land of the living, seeing as I've seen that portrayal before, but I can try to alter it if you want
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 15, 2018, 12:39:48 PM
I feel like he mostly doesn't care, but we could say that at this time he was okay with it since he was maybe going through a phase or something

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 15, 2018, 02:13:15 PM
well, who's the godly parent?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 15, 2018, 02:21:08 PM
Name: Henry Swan
Age: 22
Godly Heritage: Apollo
Powers: Precognitive sight (can see possible future events, including the probability of each scenario), Healing, and telekinesis (which he has not discovered yet)
Appearance: Dark brown hair that he tries to keep short but it grows so fast that it usually ends up curling out at his ears; ice-blue eyes. He's an average height and fairly thin.
Personality: Can come across very serious and quiet, but it's only because his ability can be overwhelming.
Backstory/ Other: The man who would have been Henry's human father fell ill and died before Henry was even conceived; Apollo overheard Henry's mother singing one day when he was pulling the sun across the sky; the sad yet beautiful tune drew him to this woman; Apollo spent weeks wooing this mortal until finally Henry was conceived. Not one for commitment or owning up to mistakes, Apollo fled and did not acknowledge his son until the day Henry's ability to foresee the future developed. Taking pity on the boy (who feared that he was losing his mind), Apollo appeared before the boy to explain everything. Henry has not see or heard from his father since that day.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 15, 2018, 04:38:08 PM
I know, double post, but I figured out my character.

Name: Giovanni (or just Gio) Donato
Age: 25
Godly Heritage: Eros, more commonly known as Cupid, his Roman name, in modern culture
Powers: vocal persuasion (can convince people to do what he says or believe him no matter what), sudden teleportation, can understand and speak all languages in the instance of hearing them
Appearance: Handsome. Period. JUST KIDDING, I’ll give a real description. Gio is originally from an oceanside city in Italy where his mother raised him alone. He has olive tanned skin, dark brown curly hair that he keeps just to his shoulders, but is often pulled out of his face to a small ponytail on the back of his head, his eyes are pale green, that kind of pale that makes you stop and take a second look. He has freckles over the bridge of his nose, high points of his cheek bones and over his collarbones and shoulders.
Personality: Gio is too smart and powerful for his own good. He’s obviously very good at lying and getting away with anything, but it makes him very lonely. He’s trying to change his ways, but can often fall back into old habits. More likely to think about himself than others, but also likes when other people like him.
Backstory/ Other: Gio ran away from home after his mother died at the hand of the man who lent them the money for their home.  As mentioned before, he uses his abilities to lie and get his way around but he’s always caught eventually and has to move around a lot and doesn’t have a permanent home. That’s how he ended up leaving Italy and is now wherever this story takes place. He was homeless, penniless and trying not to live through his lies anymore, but finding it difficult. He now lives in a modest home with other men who are also squires, hoping to become a knight for the king and queen, but is struggling since he didn't start young, as a page, like most of the others.

Im gonna have Poseidon cuz uhhhh he's my sorority's patron lmao also im basic

Name: Isabella Marino
Age: 22
Godly Heritage: Poseidon. She doesn't know, which is why she tends to be very untrusting.
Powers: control over water, able to travel from one place to another incredibly fast (not really teleport, she's just...fast. esp over water), can speak to some animals (mainly horses because god of horses)
Appearance: unruly, curly dark brown hair that she lets fly everywhere and never really tries to tame unless she has it tied up in a bun - but thats rare. Her eyes are hazel, oftentimes looking more green. She has lightly tanned skin naturally, with full lips and a slim nose. She's average height and build.
Personality: *sigh* I always try to do these and say what I expect but they never turn out that way. But tentatively, she's reserved but not shy - she just doesn't trust other people.
Backstory/ Other: She grew up in a seaport town, growing up on tales of her father's adventures as a fisherman. He'd been lost in a storm, so she'd been told. However, when her mother passed away from an illness she decided to head inland to escape the terrible memories - she wanted to be away from the water. She works as a servant in a noble's home now, and as long as she has a bed and food she's happy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 16, 2018, 11:20:54 AM
Name: Eliza Fowler

Appearance: She has a medium height, brown hair thin build, tan skin, greenish brown eyes, and a slightly crooked nose.
Personality: Quiet, curious, clumsy, impulsive when angry, will speak without thinking.
Backstory/ Other: Her mother, Maryanne was the daughter of an innkeeper, Prometheus in disguise was in a guest at the inn. Shortly after Maryanne got pregnant, she married a blacksmith, named James Fowler. This is who Eliza knows as her father.

Yoooo. So, as per usual, I'll have all of us start in the same place: a small, sea-side fishing village. Whether you live there or are just passing by is entirely up to you. Let's begin!



The souls of drowned men were always so annoying. They had died with water in their lungs, choking the breath and words from them, and because of this they couldn't speak. Instead they made grotesque gurgling sounds, that sent shivers up and down Casiel's spine every time he heard them. One such of these ghosts was currently pestering him as he set out a fishing line. He was fairly certain that the spirit knew he couldn't understand it, and yet it persisted. They always did.

"Be gone," he hissed at it, his patience wearing thin. It obeyed, disappearing right before his eyes. Of course it wouldn't be long before it was replaced by another, hounding him for God knows what.

"You a'right there, Casiel?" one of the other dock hands called to him from across the way. "Talkin' to yourself again?"

"It was just a rat," Cas quickly explained. "Chewing up the lines."

The other man snorted. "Right. Well, try not to talk to the 'rats' so loudly. Don't want people thinking you're crazy or anything."

Elisha had taken up refuge in a small town near the water. She was going to take a break for a couple days since her last kill was fresh and only a couple towns over, and then she would begin stalking her next victim: a man who regularly beat his wife. For now though, she was just going to explore the town, get the lay of the land, and try to blend in as much as possible.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 16, 2018, 12:05:34 PM
Henry's mother had sent him to the village for a few things and so there he stood, outside one of the shops with a splitting headache. His ability rarely showed him anything important; it was often quick glimpses of the most boring of future events, like someone buying a loaf of bread from the baker. He often had troubled distinguishing between his visions and the present, which almost always made his head ache tremendously.

So there he was, trying to get all the items she had requesting while also trying to determine what was actually happening and what was just a possibility. It was always worse in more populated areas, so he was grateful to live on a secluded farm in the countryside

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 16, 2018, 12:10:10 PM
One more month. That’s all Giovanni had left until he was a full fledged Knight of the King’s army. There was a small thrill in his chest over the thought and how far he’d come since his last incident. He took a sharp breath and stopped his horse with a slow, “Easy.” and slid down off of it to tie his horse to the nearby post and enter the tavern.

Gio went to the bar and ordered an ale, holding it to himself as he ventured to a nearby table and sitting down alone, watching, entertained as a man and a woman sang and played flute at the front of the room. The young man was rugged, not very attractive but not totally plain either. The woman was large in the chest and not afraid to display it, which is why Gio was sure she was performing. As always, he favored looking at the young man and silencing judging the appearance of everyone in the room as well as their relationships. Married, courting, courting, casually fornicating, it was like his mind could tell him their secrets. He also could usually tell if one was pining after someone else. That was quite amusing. He continued to drink and listen and consider how much time he had in this small village before heading out to the barracks where he stayed with the other squires.

His work for that day finally finished, Cas headed to the tavern as he usually did. Every day it was the same old story; work on the docks, try not to draw too much attention to himself, then drink himself stupid until he was able to pass out anywhere comfortably, then rinse and repeat the following morning. He'd been stuck in the same old routine since washing up on that very shore. Clearly he had no family or loved ones from the life he could not remember as nobody had come to claim him, so he was stuck in a never-ending cycle of mediocrity, all the while day dreaming about who he once had been.

He found a table in the corner, slumping into the chair with a groan, greatful to be able to get off of his feet and away from the drowned dead.

Elisha walked through town, passing through a market. There was a bakery nearby, and the bread smelled delicious. But then, she saw the tavern. She knew it by name, since it was the tavern where her next target would regularly frequent. She had promised herself a few days rest, but who was to say that she couldn't just go in and look around? She didn't have to be scoping out her target. She checked her change purse; she still had money to go off of until she could collect from her next hit. Maybe she would just go in and order some ale.

Name: Carter Milescross.
Age: 19.
Godly heritage: Aries/Mars. Knows that he's a Demigod.
Powers: Commanding/Terrifying Voice (allows him to lead the people he's with, or terrify his enemies) Weapon skills (automatically knows how to use any weapon he picks up,) and he has incredible strength.
Appearance: Average height, broad shouldered, with dirty-blond curls down to his shoulders. His complexion is that if someone who's spent much of his life outdoors in all weathers, making for a roughly handsome look. His cloths are simple, but well made, in browns and greens.
Personality: Steady, generally calm, and collected. Carter is probably an oddity for a child of the god of war, in that he dosen't fight unless it's in a just cause, filling his father's title of Mars Ultor, the Avenger. While usually calm and collected, he is capable of fierce, cold rages, which tend to leave a trail of death and destruction behind him.
Backstory: Born to the daughter of a soldier, Cal grew up among fighting men, which helped shape his sense of discipline and skill at arms. When he was 16, a friend became trapped beneath a cart, which began crushing him. In a panic, Carter lifted the cart off his friend, slowing bystanders to pull him free. Shortly after, he terrified some bullies who were picking on a young girl, causing one's heart to stop. Rushing home he learned the truth, that he was the son of Mars. He soon had to flee to avoid being executed in a string of witchhunts.

Gio watched as a young man entered the tavern and his eyes stayed on him for a while. Handsome, a whisper came to his ear and he took a breath to still his heart. In his past, Giovanni had been...questionable around handsome men that tickled his fancy. He’d learned at a young age that he could make people do things by just...saying things the right way. He couldn’t make someone do something they didn’t want, that was the one down side, but he could convince them to do it if it had maybe crossed their mind before or if it was in their nature. But he was a changed man now. He wouldn’t allow the list of his heart to take over his flesh anymore. His eyes went down from the young man as he found the corner and he turned back to his ale, taking another deep gulp before calling the table girl over to bring him another, tossing her a coin with a wink. She giggled brightly and headed to the bar right away.

Henry purchased everything his mother had asked for then ventured into the tavern for a quick drink, hoping to dull pain a little. He stopped in the doorway, wincing a little as he saw a glimpse of a horrible fire burning the tavern to the ground; of course there was no telling WHEN it would happen or IF it would happen.

Elisha walked into the tavern. Though it was a place where mostly men resided, she had found that as long as she wasn't too loud, she could get away with being there. She sat down at a table that was a little ways away from other people so as not to draw attention to herself and ordered an ale.

Carter entered town on foot, just a tired, worn-looking out of work soldier. He leaned on his quarterstaff to spare the limp in one leg where he'd wrenched his ankle earlier. Hopefully he could find a place to sleep at the inn.

Casiel had been busy drowning himself in ale when he heard the voice. The spirits were becoming restless suddenly, far louder than they usually were. They were screaming suddenly, something clearly having upset them. Cas held his head, far too intoxicated to make out what they were saying clearly. He caught a few words, one being "power". "Shut, up," he finally growled and they settled, but only a little. As he finally looked up he locked eyes with a dark-haired man at the other side of the tavern, but he quickly looked away.

The first man who entered was a different kind of handsome than the first, more masculine, but less of Giovanni's type. A woman followed after him, actually..more of a girl than a woman, but she actually looked similar to Gio's own features and he found that...endearing, not that she meant to look like that, but he liked it. Like they could almost be siblings, but he didn't find her nearly as attractive as he knew he was. Then another young man came in and when Giovanni went to read him, it was as it his mind went fuzzy. He just...couldn't read him. He could see his features, he could access that he was average looking, no real spark to him, but even if he wanted to use his abilities, he had something about him that...seemed to block Gio's way. He raised an eyebrow, but then went back to his ale, daring to glance at the first man who'd entered, the one in the corner that he thought handsome, when he heard a muttering growl from that direction. They held each other's eyes for a moment and then the man looked away. Giovanni tilted his head, had he caught the man's attention as well?

Carter took a table where he could view the room. His bowl of postage, ale and bread arrived, and he ate slowly enjoying the food. He glanced up at a young man who entered, clearly disturbed by something.

Cas knocked back another drink, trying to steady his nerves. Now that they had calmed down, he could hear the spirits more clearly. They seemed to be circling around certain people within the tavern, a girl and a couple of men, including the one he had locked eyes with. Curiosity getting the better of him, Casiel stood and strolled over to the man.

"Haven't seen you round these parts," he began, trying his best to act like all he was interested in was small talk. "A traveler, are you?"

Gio sat up straighter and held his jaw to keep himself from speaking first as the man approached. He swallowed roughly and looked up at him before nodding. He grit his teeth for a moment and then stood smoothly, "I'm Giovanni Donato, squire to the King. I was just in the village to deliver a gift from the king to his overseer in this village. I'm heading back in the morning." he told the man and then motioned to the table, "Do you wish to have a seat?" he was careful not to use his voice [which I will use italics to emphasize in the future].

Elisha looked around the bar, watching as people interacted. One man had approached another, and there was an awkwardness there that she took note of. Then, at another table, there was a man eating some bread with ale. She continued her gaze around the room, taking a sip of her own ale.

Being in the fishing town made Isabella beyond nervous, but she'd been sent to buy fish. She was on her way back from the market when she passed the tavern. Her hood was drawn up and her cloak held tightly around her -to avoid any mishaps near the water. She chewed her inner lip, debating going in. She had some extra coins, and she could use something to calm her nerves.
So, she entered. She took a moment to take in the room as she pulled her hood down with the hand not cradling her basket. She went up to order a pint and went to find an empty seat, carefully picking her way through to one of the back tables.

"Thank you," Cas replied sincerely, taking a seat across from the man. There was something strange about him, although it was probably just the excited spirits. Still, what were they excited about? "I am Casiel," he introduced himself. "A squire, huh? How... fancy."

"I'm a glorified errand boy. I suppose that's all knights are too though, but their errands are more of battle and less of...delivery and announcement," Giovanni told him. He looked at the man and from his aura could sense he was...unattached. Gio furrowed his brow, "What do you partake in? Are you a fisher, like most here?"

"Have you always been from this part of the kingdom?"

He took a smaller swig this time.

Mateline was tired after a long day's work, so she decided to slip into the local tavern for some dinner and a drink. The ghosts had been especially incessant, though they knew better at this point than to speak to her. As she walked into the tavern, she felt an energy she couldn't explain, and the ghosts were surrounding a young man. She frowned and took a seat at the bartop, eyes locked on the young fisherman in confusion. The ghosts didn't normally converge around anyone but her, why would they? Nobody else could see them.

Another person entered and headed to the two men who were in discussion. Elisha tilted her head slightly, curious. She could tell by body language that none of these people knew one another, and yet they were all seemingly drawn to each other. She picked up her drink and made her way over to the bar too, taking a seat at the corner end of the bar, where she had a wall to her back once more. At least now she had a chance at hearing what they were saying.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 16, 2018, 04:17:59 PM
Casiel shrugged. He wasn't about to get into his extremely short history, regardless of how curious he was about Giovanni. "You could say that," he replied, glancing around the bar again. His gaze immediately landed upon a young woman in the corner, surrounded by spirits, far more than anyone else. This was just getting stranger.

Post by: Emma-la on December 16, 2018, 04:26:05 PM
Mateline turned to one of the spirits, trying to get some information out of them without speaking too much. No need to draw attention. "Who is he?" she whispered to one of them, more of a hiss. The spirit simply smirked at her and made her way over to the man as well. She could feel the crowd forming around them and she was concerned about staying under the radar. She locked eyes with the man, and then the woman who had taken up a place at the end of the bar. This day was far too strange.

Elisha eyed the girl closely, wondering if she was someone who had found her out. If that was the case, she'd have to make quick work of this girl and skip out of town before anyone found the body. Better to play it cautious though, just in case. "My name is Elisha Regina," she said, using her chosen name. "And you?"

“He sees them too, I’m sure of it,” she said in a harsh tone, already standing with a dangerous look on her face. “We will do what we must to stop him from leaving.” She had to know.

Giovanni suddenly good and took a hold of Casiel's arm, "Wait. Wait...." he looked around them, "I'm sorry. I shouldn't have. I just wanted to know more. You're...like me?" he asked suddenly, his eyes begging to know the truth.

Casiel narrowed his eyes. So he'd been right, Giovanni had messed with his head. "Like you?" he repeated. "I don't know who, much less what, I am." Still he couldn't deny the desperate curiosity in Gio's eyes, something he could fully relate to. "What are you, then?"

With everything going on in the tavern, Henry's headache was only worsening. When he heard snippets of conversations regarding demi-gods he just could not handle it any longer; he was not prepared too be pulled into any of that nonsense.

Mateline knee that Elisha was right but it was driving her crazy. This might be her one chance at knowing who she was. But self preservation was her strongest instinct, so she simply finished off her ale in record time. “I should leave,” she muttered. “Before I get in any more trouble.”

Elisha finished her ale as well and considered the circumstances. She hadn't met another demigod in person before, though she had heard about them through Hades. This one seemed to not know her heritage though. She did want to get more familiar with the girl though; she may need her one day. "Do you live around here?" she asked.

"The gods..." A piercing pain shot through this skull suddenly, as if he'd been stabbed through the eye with a red hot poker. He grunted in pain, holding his head. Something about that term, demigod, was very familiar. "We... we can't talk about this here. We'll be killed for even bringing it up."

Gio put his hand back on Cas' arm as he looked like he was suddenly in great pain. He looked back at the man who had approached them, "Why would you think we were....Listen, is there a safer place to talk about this? About what we are and...who you are and how you know more than we do about ourselves?"

"Ah," Elisha said. "See, I'm not from here. I find it an odd little town, but I guess it's your normal? Maybe you could show me around some time?"

(night! Should we pause for tomorrow perhaps?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 16, 2018, 05:45:21 PM
[yeah I gotta sleep too]

She nodded slowly. “Yes, I can show you around. I could meet you back here tomorrow afternoon,” she offered, chin jutted out as if she was challenging her instead of inviting her to frolick about town.

Carter nodded. "Yes, that would be a best. He rose to leave, paying for his meal.

(Ok.)

Isabella needed to go. She had caught snippets of conversation, and they were conversations she really didn't want to hear. She nearly knocked into two women in her haste to leave, quickly uttering an apology as she tried to continue on.

“Watch where you’re going,” Mateline snapped at the girl, her patience wearing thin. She was off somewhere in a hurry.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 17, 2018, 02:18:36 AM
Isabella looked over her shoulder at the girl who had spoken as she walked, eyes narrowed in a piercing glare as she pulled her hood back up.

"The inn across the street," Casiel told them, also leaving a few coins on the counter for his drink. "We can get a room." He looked down at Giovanni's hand on his arm and pulled away. "Plenty of privacy to talk."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 05:44:23 AM
“Well, aren’t you a bit hostile,” Elisha mused, seeing Mateline’s reaction to the girl with the hood.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 06:19:40 AM
“No more than some people,” she said. “They’re leaving,” she said suddenly. “We should follow them.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 07:06:02 AM
Giovanni took his hand back and held them to himself as he realized that he'd just used his ability on Cas, he probably shouldn't be so easy to touch him. Gio put his coins on the table and nodded at Cassiel, "Lead the way. I'm right behind you." he said. If Cassiel had offered to get a room for the two of them, he'd been more disagreeable about it, that was too much temptation, but with this third man who might know more about what they were, it was going to fine. Right?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 07:32:02 AM
Cas left the tavern, assuming the two were going to follow him. He was certain it looked off, three men meeting in a bar and then immediately venturing off to a nearby in, but he didn't care. Clearly Giovanni was, what was it that he had said, like him, and that second man's mention of demigods had definitely sparked some sort of memory within him. He had to know who these people were and what was going on.

He entered the inn and made his way to the innkeep, shoving his hands in his pockets to grab more coin. His pockets were empty, and he silently cursed himself for buying so many drinks at the tavern. He cast a quick glance at Gio then took a deep breath. His secret was out now, right? Might as well make the most of it.

He approached the innkeeper and immediately grabbed the man's hand, concentrating on filling his mind with a false memory. When he pulled away the man smiled brightly at him. "Casiel, good to see you again! We have a room for you upstairs, first door on the left."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 17, 2018, 07:48:48 AM
Carter raised an eyebrow at Casiel's actions, but followed up to the room. That was an interesting power.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 07:52:59 AM
Gio looked at Cas when he glanced back and furrowed his brow, unsure what Casiel's plan was from here. He saw him search through his pockets, but then when they met the innkeeper, it was if Cas already had a room here. Giovanni's eyes grew wide. They had more in common than he thought.
He followed Casiel towards the room and quietly spoke, "How did you do that? You didn't even say anything."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 07:57:57 AM
Henry made it only as far at the inn where he fell to his knees, clutching his head in agony. He was seeing everything little thing going on inside the inn before it happened, as if his father was trying to keep him there, "Just let me be," he growled, drawing unwanted attention to himself from people passing by.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 07:58:28 AM
Casiel was quiet for a moment, heart racing. He'd never been so brazen with his powers in public, and it almost felt good. "As far as he remembers, I bought a room here last night," Cas explained, opening the door to their room. It was small, unsurprising for a small inn in a small village. But it was cozy and, more importantly, private.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 17, 2018, 08:06:58 AM
"Now I promised you some explanation." Carter pulled over a stool. "The ancient Greek and Roman gods are real, and very much alive. They also sometimes come down and have offspring with mortals. Demigods, like Hercules and Purseus."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 08:08:27 AM
"You change the memory, interesting. And you have to touch someone to do it?" Gio asked him, simply ecstatic that someone else had abilities like this and he wasn't completely alone. He went into the room and stood off to the side, leaning against a wall, "Mine is all about speaking. I have...a second voice. I can make people do things, in their own mind still, but perhaps not in their own timing." he explained. He figured explaining that ability alone was sufficient since he had used it on Cas and if he needed a quick escape, they didn't need to know about his ability to teleport.

When Giovanni heard the second man explain himself about the demigods, it make him tilt his head a bit, "I'm sorry....You think we are offspring of Gods who had affairs with women?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 08:09:43 AM
Mateline has followed the men as far as the inn and was about to go inside to try and eavesdrop when she saw another man fall to his knees outside. The ghosts were strong around him too and she paused to stare.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 17, 2018, 08:11:31 AM
"Or goddesses with men, yes. That's what we are." His voice was matter of fact,
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 08:19:23 AM
"So that's what you did to me, back at the tavern? You made me reveal myself," Cas said, a little harshly. He looked over at the other man. "Gods?" he snorted. "What, so we're like the heroes from myth? Right, that explains why I spend my days untangling fishing lines and drinking myself into a stupor."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 08:22:13 AM
Elisha has walked with Mateline, curious about these men and Mateline’s insistence on following them? Could they be demigods too? But why would there be so many in this small village? “Are the phantoms saying anything of interest?” She asked Mateline quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 08:26:03 AM
"Leave me alone," he muttered as the visions continued to flood his mind; he didn't even know what was happening in the present.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
"You looked like you had more to tell and you were holding back. I simply coerced you into telling me more. I can't make anyone do something out of their own nature. If you would never had told me the truth, then you wouldn't have said anything, but something in you wanted to share, I just forced that piece of you," Gio told him plainly after he was stern. He didn't want Cas to be upset with him over it, and he'd already apologized. His attention turned to the other man again and he took a deep breath, "The demigods, in those legends, were often mistreated and outcasted from their society. That maybe why you're so lost and why I can't maintain a singular home or companion for very long."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 09:15:20 AM
“They don’t say much,” she said. “But they sure are crowding around people they normally wouldn’t be. Getting my attention. That man,” she pointed at the one on the ground. “It’s like they recognize him.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 09:23:17 AM
“Is it possible that he is perhaps like you?” Elisha asked, subtly testing to see if Mateline suspected anything at all of her heritage.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 09:30:53 AM
"I don't feel part god," Casiel said flatly. He felt weak and hopeless, not at all powerful or however it was that he assumed gods were supposed to feel. He turned his attention to the window suddenly, overhearing the spirits. "Somebody's eavesdropping."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 09:36:07 AM
"Oh, you didn't want to warn me when this guy was eavesdropping on us, but now you can notify us when someone else is?" Gio asked as he came over to the window and looked out of it as well. "How do you know? You can hear them far away?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 17, 2018, 09:39:17 AM
Carter turned to the window, looking down on the street. "Two Lassies I saw at the tavern ate in the street below us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 09:43:04 AM
"I was a little preoccupied in the tavern," Cal retorted, peeking out the window. He couldn't see them in the darkness, but the ghosts swirling around told him exactly who it was. "Altering people's memories isn't the only thing I can do," he added.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 09:47:54 AM
Gio smirked a little as they watched the ladies outside, "Guess we both still have some secrets then," he said quietly.

Eliza was home from the butcher, when she heard an agonized moan from afar. running towards it, she found a man on the ground, with his head in his hands. There was a crowd, but none were aiding him.

She knelt next to him, touching the back of his head.

" Sir, are you alright?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 09:56:04 AM
<**looks good, Julia**>

"They must have overheard us earlier," Cas said, tone dark. Were they gathering intel to report them? And why were the ghosts crowding around that girl. He looked at Gio. "Secrets, huh? So you have other abilities as well I take it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 10:03:48 AM
Gio nodded and raised his eyebrows, "But time will tell if it's important for you to know about them," he said and then looked around the room and then at Carter and back to Cas, "I think we should probably stay away from the window then, maybe move to a different room."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 10:06:34 AM
Henry saw a girl kneel by his side, asking if he was alright. Then, there she was with a comforting hand on the back of his aching head. He whimpered pathetically, with a slight shake of his head, "I'm fine," he got out, realizing the scene he was making. Henry forced himself to his feet and looked up at the window, knowing he'd see the men there watching. Demi-gods, like him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 10:08:34 AM
Mateline frowned at Elisha, shaking her head. “I doubt there’s anyone like me. I would hope there isn’t.” She stared up at the window, telling a ghost to go listen for her. Thank god they occasionally listened to her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 17, 2018, 10:16:00 AM
"The gods don't always acknowledge their children." Carter said sadly. "Life as a Demigod is rarely easy, and often dangerous."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 17, 2018, 10:23:52 AM
Eliza blinked, he stood up as if nothing happened, that was odd, to say the least.

She looked at in the direction Henry was staring at, then looked back at him.

" Are you certain?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 11:21:03 AM
Elisha eyed the window. She wasn’t entirely sure, but she’d been on the run long enough to know the feeling of someone watching her. “I think we’ve been spotted,” she said. “Either that, or you’re wrong and your phantom friends gave us away.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 11:22:04 AM
"Well then screw the gods and everything to do with them," Cas grumbled, stepping away from the window. Something about the mention of the gods was sparking a fire within him, even though he'd never really thought about them before. How was it that he hated them so much? He sighed. "Well, clearly whoever I was before I must have been angry with the gods."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 11:37:07 AM
“Well, if they already know we’re watching, we have nothing to lose,” she told her. Mateline stiffened her back. He couldn’t be like her, could he? The idea was too tempting. The ghost came back, whispering things about gods and demigods. Her blood ran cold, the idea was preposterous. “Something else is going on. I have to go up there.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 11:43:48 AM
“I’m all for going up there, but you can’t just burst in,” Elisha said. “Tell me what the ghosts say. Maybe they can help us.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 11:45:55 AM
“They’re being stupid,” Mateline complained. “They can’t be telling he truth. Talking about gods and children of gods...something called demigods?” She shook her head, gearing up to just burst in anyways. “None of it makes sense.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 11:54:30 AM
"I'm quite alright," Henry replied shortly, still gazing up at the window; he had an inclination that the visions would not cease until he did what Apollo wanted. "Alright fine, I'll do what you want," he muttered, probably looking even more crazy to the people nearby. Henry pushed open the front doors and the Inn entered against his better judgement
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 12:07:09 PM
So these people were demigods and they were self aware. This was getting interesting. “Well... That’s strange,” she said. “Do they have any idea how we could sneak in?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 12:08:37 PM
“Go through the back?” She suggested, feeling a strange sense of companionship. “I’m sure they have ways for the staff to get in.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 12:34:22 PM
“Sounds like a good plan. Can the phantoms scout ahead so we don’t have any unexpected issues?” Elisha asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 17, 2018, 12:43:55 PM
" Who were you tal.." Before Eliza finished her sentience, the stranger entered the inn.
people were watching him from the window... it didn't seem like they were passersby watching some random hooligan, it was more intently than that.

A women came from a sidedoor, dumping out washwater, Eliza quickly followed after the woman went inside.

 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 12:47:56 PM
Mateline was already on the move. “They don’t do my bidding,” She snapped. “We’re lucky they’re doing me any favours to begin with.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 01:09:58 PM
Henry had picked the perfect time to walk on past without being noticed; sometimes his ability had its advantages. Up the stairs he went, using his visions to guide him towards the right room.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 01:35:24 PM
Gio looked at the door and put his hand up for them to stop talking, “Sh,” he said quietly and then looked over at Cas and Carter, “Someone is coming up the stairs,” he said. He drew the curtains on the window they’d been looking out and then motioned for them to stand on either side of the door. “How long to your fake memories last?” He asked Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 01:38:50 PM
"Dunno," Casiel replied, moving to one side of the door, facing into the room. "Depends on the memory and the person, I guess."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 01:44:07 PM
“I’ll just use my voice. Tell him to go back downstairs and ignore the problem. I’m sure he’ll be fine,” Gio said, assuming it was the innkeeper coming back upstairs.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 01:44:41 PM
Henry stopped at the door, unsure about entering. In situations such as this, he was grateful for his gift; it meant he had been able to keep himself safe by simply knowing what could happen. He would surely not let these fools wipe his memories. Rather than bursting in, he simply knocked on the door and waited. The bombardment of visions had ceased so he imagined Apollo was satisfied with his actions. "I mean no harm," he announced
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 01:46:18 PM
Casiel frowned. He didn't recognize that voice. "You've got the wrong room," he called. "We weren't expecting anyone."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 01:48:46 PM
Henry chuckled, "Oh trust me, I have the right room," he replied, waiting for them to open the door.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 01:49:11 PM
Mateline snuck through the back, hearing voices she recognized and following the ghosts the whole way. They clearly wanted her to meet these people.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 01:56:47 PM
Elisha followed Mateline carefully; if things got too out of hand, she could always just leave. Though if these were all powered people...

Perhaps the Fates had something larger at play.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 17, 2018, 02:00:38 PM
After finding her way from the kitchen area, Eliza followed the man's footfalls, making sure to stay far behind, I hopes that he wouldn't notice. She hid in a dark corner a few feet away from the stairwell, listening.

He doesn't know them?... She thought.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 02:01:40 PM
Mateline crept up the stairs and realized there was only one way in, and a man was standing in the way. “They’re in there,” she whispered to Elisha. “I need to get us in there.” She felt such a strong pull from inside that room, she had to know.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 02:05:03 PM
As they got closer, Elisha began to get a gnawing feeling; it seemed that she, too, wanted to know who these strangers were. She eyed the man who was blocking their passage. On the one hand, she didn't want to reveal her powers to Mateline, not after denying she had any. On the other, she wanted to get up there.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 02:06:40 PM
“What if we just...snuck in behind him?” She had other methods she could employ, but they would cause a scene that would only serve to put them in danger.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 02:08:37 PM
"Follow him into a room that only has one exit and assume that nobody will notice? What if the room is a completely open room? They'd see us for sure," Elisha replied. Sometimes she wished she were less of a strategist, but then again, that was what made her good at her work.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 02:11:36 PM
“I don’t care,” she growled. “There is someone in that room that I have to meet, I’m sure of it,” Mateline ground out through her teeth. “I don’t care about giving a surprise anymore, alright? I just want to know.” She was being rash, but that was who she was at her core. Emotional and rash.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 17, 2018, 02:24:52 PM
Eliza watched the dark haired women by the stairs, they were following the man that collapsed? and that man was following the man in the room? Why? Why was the one woman being impatient? What was so important about these men? She crept slowly out of the corner, and tripped on the edge of a rug.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 02:27:04 PM
Elisha heard the sound behind her and turned, spotting a woman on the ground. She inhaled deeply. They had been caught. Was this girl part of the strange people in the room, or was she an onlooker like Mateline and herself. Was this girl a threat? She didn't look like it. She tapped Mateline on the shoulder. "We have company."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 02:31:55 PM
Mateline turned around, setting her icy gaze on the girl on the floor. Her defended were up immediately. “What are you doing?” She growled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 17, 2018, 02:50:06 PM
Eliza got up. There was a cut on her forehead, she pushed aside her hair. She could feel cut clotting quickly and getting hot.
Oh, don't fix up now, please! They'll have me killed! She tried to force it to stop, which was difficult, making her nauseous.

Eliza grabbed a nearby vase, wiping  it with a handkerchief. " Madam, I clean." 

 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 03:00:24 PM
Elisha glanced at the door, but then walked down towards Eliza, noticing something peculiar about the bloody spot on her head. She reached up, brushing the girl's hair aside to see the cut. "That must hurt," she said calmly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 03:32:43 PM
Casiel swore. According to the ghosts there were a lot more people outside than he'd expected. Could they be the king's guard? Or assassins? "We're outnumbered," he said to Gio and Carter, turning back to the door. "You swear that you mean no harm?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 03:39:07 PM
"I swear to it," Henry replied impatiently, "If I meant to hurt you, do you think I would have knocked?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 03:41:48 PM
Mateline looked the girl over, keeping her distance. “Elisha,” she hissed. “Leave the girl, we have business to attend to.” The ghosts were getting impatient, she needed to get in that room right away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 17, 2018, 03:43:59 PM
Gio looked at Cas and nodded in understand. He'd only once used his power on multiple people at once and it had not gone over very well. He took a deep breath and then looked to the door before looking at the room they were standing in. He then looked at Cas, locking eyes again for a moment before disappearing completely.
 He was at the bottom of the staircase. He accessed the situation, one man on the stairs, three women in the hall just behind and then disappeared before anyone could notice him and reappeared back where he had been standing across from Cas, reporting what he'd seen, "An average sized man in the stairwell, he was in the tavern with us. Three women are behind him...two together with a third they don't appear to know. I remember two of them from the tavern as well, the ones we saw out the window."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 04:07:39 PM
Cas stumbled back when he disappeared and reappeared again. "You, you just-" Of course he had. Why was Casiel so surprised? Clearly they could both do some pretty incredible things. He turned back to the door. "You have people tailing you. It's them I don't trust."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 04:23:28 PM
Henry knew they were there; how could he not! They were doing a lousy job of being stealthy.
"I am aware, but I can assure you they are not a threat," Henry told the man on the other side of the door
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 04:27:40 PM
Mateline heard them speaking at the door. Clearly, they knew they were there. No point in trying to be sneaky anymore, so she abandoned the other girls and stepped up behind the man at the door. "No threat?" she echoed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 04:35:38 PM
Elisha scowled and then turned, following Mateline up towards the door. “Who are you all?” She asked, throwing caution to the wind. There was something about this group that was getting to her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 04:53:55 PM
Power... they all have power.... Cas was quiet for a long moment, listening to the ghosts swirling around him. Finally, against his better judgement, he opened the door. "Who are you and why are you following us?" he demanded.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 04:56:27 PM
The man that opened the door was surrounded by ghosts and her eyes went wide for just a moment, her heart leaping. She didn’t reply, her gaze fixated on the ghosts surrounding him, feeling more around her. So many ghosts all at once was an anomaly for her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 04:56:45 PM
Elisha was of two minds. On the one hand, there was a lot of them; if she did attack, she probably wouldn’t be able to take them all out before they got her. But then, she looked closer at the man in the doorway. He seemed...nervous? She pushed down her fight instinct. “I was just following my friend here,” Elisha said calmly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 05:00:43 PM
"Henry Swan," he replied, walking passed him into the room, "and to answer your second question, my father sent me to you. He's very persistent," Henry said, eyeing the three men curiously.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 05:15:59 PM
Casiel backed up, glaring at them all. The ghosts were also speaking to that girl, he could hear it, but he had no time to worry about that now. "Am I supposed to care about who your father is?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 05:29:46 PM
"You might," Henry said, "As it's the reason we've all been drawn together in this place," he added, "You see, my father is Apollo," he explained, "and I imagine many of you, if not all, also have godly parents.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 05:31:20 PM
That snapped her attention off of the ghosts. “Are you crazy?” She asked the man, Henry. It couldn’t be possible. Sure, she didn’t know who her father was, but she had barely known her mother either. Even if it was possible, if she had a godly parent, wouldn’t they have introduced themselves?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 05:33:49 PM
Elisha repressed a smile. So they were self aware demigods. Or, at least one of them was. “Apollo?” She asked, staying consistent with her charade. “As in the Ancient Greek god Apollo? That’s impossible, you know.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 17, 2018, 05:33:59 PM
Again with the gods. "Get inside, all of you," Casiel instructed. He wanted badly to run, but knew that it would be foolish. After all, Gio and Carter new his secret; they could easily report him. Best to handle this problem head-on. "We can't be talking about this stuff out in the open."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 17, 2018, 05:41:43 PM
Henry wasn't concerned; he hadn't foreseen anything bad happening. "It's not impossible; trust me I wish it wasn't true," Henry admitted. "Apollo appeared before me when I first developed my ability. I thought I was losing my mind; it was all so terrifying and then...there's this god telling me I'm his son," he explained.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 17, 2018, 05:44:29 PM
Elisha walked up and entered the room. She turned back to Apollo’s son - Henry - and stared at him. “I don’t believe you. Can you prove it?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 17, 2018, 11:33:35 PM
Mateline frowned. “It doesn’t make sense. If I’m the child of a god, don’t you think he would have shown himself to me by now?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 18, 2018, 01:33:16 AM
Eliza sighed in relief when the others left.
She took a deep breath, perhaps it was best to leave now, but she had a strong desire to know.

She walked  to the top of the stairs, eavesdropping against better judgement.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 02:09:48 AM
Gio listened and watched everyone as they entered the small room. It was getting crowded and he didn't like that. He stood in the corner, eyes scanning everyone who entered and then his focus went back to the door, "There's still someone else in the hall," he said quietly, mostly to Cas and himself. He sighed and opened the door, "No use in eavesdropping. Everyone else is in here and I'm sure with the mix we've just discovered, if you meant to hurt us, we could easily take care of you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 02:50:58 AM
“Most of the gods do not acknowledge their mortal children,”  henry said, “the only reason Apollo did was because he pitied me. I have see or heard from him since,” henry admitted
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 02:54:01 AM
Mateline scowled a little at that. She was plenty pitiable. “How would we know who our goldy parent is if they don’t introduce themselves?” She asked bitterly, still not really believing. There was no proof to this theory.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:58:39 AM
“I’m sure not all of us are demigods,” Elisha said, testing the waters. She wondered if they would recognize or understand what she was about to say. “I knew both of my parents. The Lord and Lady of Moray?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 18, 2018, 03:32:59 AM
Eliza stood stood by the door, unsure of what to say or do.

First she was caught at the door, and now, they were all saying that that were related to deities from a religion that was long dead? and that they could hurt her, if they so desired. Were they were like her?

" Do you possess... abilities? "All of you?"


Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 03:36:42 AM
"Oh, your mother was nobility? That would definitely negate her from being involved with a god," Giovanni said sarcastically. He then swallowed and sighed, "I never knew my father. And my mother never mentioned him, even once, so honestly, it's completely plausible. I...I thought the abilities were just a natural talent I'd acquired that no one else did." he admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 03:39:49 AM
So, this town was far enough away for her reputation as Lord Moray’s killer hadn’t followed her here. This was good. “So who is your godly parent then?” She asked, letting skepticism seep into her voice. She wondered what had brought them all together. Was her father finally trying to do her in for ignoring his warnings when it came to the murders?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 03:45:45 AM
Giovanni looked at her and shrugged, "I have no idea. I...wouldn't even know where to start. I don't really know much about Greeks gods and goddesses. My mother didn't stay with a religion and once I was on my own, I had bigger things to worry about, like a roof over my head." He looked around the room, "I think the more important question is...what can you all do?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 03:52:58 AM
Cas still had a hard time believing it, at least the part about the gods, but there was no denying that everyone in that room had abilities, at least according to the spirits. He looked over at the girl, the one the spirits were also focused on. There could only be one explanation. "She can see ghosts," he said. "So can I."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 03:58:12 AM
At the mans words, her heart couldn’t help but jump a little. She wasn’t the only one. “So you can see them,” Mateline said to him. She wasn’t willing to reveal the other things she could do, so she decided to just pretend the ghosts were her only ability.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on December 18, 2018, 04:02:19 AM
" Er... I can heal."

A flame rose up in Eliza's palm.

" And that."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 04:15:12 AM
Elisha watched as the flame rose in the girl’s hand. She glanced at Mateline, who she had already told she didn’t have powers to. We’re the ghosts going to tell the Hades boy that she had powers? But if that was the case, wouldn’t they have told Mateline?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 04:15:47 AM
Gio raised an eyebrow and smiled a little. It was nice to...not be alone. He wasn't sure if he wanted many more people to know about his persuasion ability and it was hard to demonstrate and he didn't want to explain it again. He simply decided to share his secondary ability. "I can go anywhere I want, as long as I can see it in my mind." he told them and then was gone, reappearing, sitting on top of the bed's headboard.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 04:22:10 AM
Casiel jumped again when Giovanni teleported. "You can't at least give us a warning before you do that?' he grumbled. He looked at the girl who saw ghosts again. "They're paying the most attention to us, since they know we can sense them. I guess that's why you decided to follow me?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:24:37 AM
Mateline nodded. “Yes, I’ve never seen them converge so much around someone that wasn’t well...me.” Her suspicions kept growing. “Is it possible we have the same godly parent?” She asked him. Why else would they share a power?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 04:28:48 AM
Cas frowned, brow furrowing. Was that how it worked. "No... no because if that were the case, wouldn't that make us siblings?" Then again, he didn't remember his life. He just always pictured being able to recognize his family when he saw them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:33:08 AM
“Would it be so ridiculous if we were?” She asked. Mateline has been feeling some strange draw towards him since she saw him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 04:44:09 AM
"I did warn you, I explained what I do and thought I'd demonstrate," Gio said to Cas with a small grin.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 04:54:15 AM
“That looks like fun,” Elisha said. “So as long as you’ve seen somewhere then you can’t get there. Interesting.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 05:09:55 AM
Oh, so Gio was a smart ass? Figures. "What's your name, then?" he asked the girl he'd been talking to. Maybe that would spark a memory, or at least a bit of familiarity.

“My name is Mateline,” she told him, wary of the rest of the people there. She didn’t trust anyone there. She was well aware of Elisha beside her, wondering how she would fare with no powers.

"Carter Milescross, son of Mars." Carter introduced himself. "I must say this is more Demigods then I've ever met in one place."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 07:24:56 AM
Henry looked around the room; there were certainly some interesting abilities. He'd stumbled across some very powerful demi-gods. "I can see into the future. Well, I get glimpses of possibilities; usually it's nothing very important and it's more of a curse than anything," he admitted. "I can also heal others; doesn't work on myself for whatever reason"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 09:11:45 AM
That name didn't spark anything in him. "I'm Casiel," he replied, now turning his attention to Henry. "So you said your father lead you here? I guess all of us coming together like this wasn't a coincidence?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 09:44:57 AM
Elisha turned to Henry, curious too. What had he foreseen, if anything, about their meeting?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 10:07:15 AM

Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 10:17:19 AM
Mateline stared around at the people in the room, her gaze lingering on Elisha. At this point, she was the only person she trusted there. She felt completely overwhelmed and her defenses were going up. She retreated back so she was in a corner and had a better view of everyone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 10:22:06 AM
"And he's not telling you anything else? Like where we're all supposed to go from here?" Casiel asked him. He was on edge, and assumed the rest of them were, too. There was no way a group of people with these abilities would be brought together just to have a pleasant chat.

(I mean... me and Emma may have already started on that.....)

"Potentially a stupid question, but are you able to ask your father questions?" Elisha asked. "I mean, I would assume not, or else you probably would have already done it, but I am curious."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 18, 2018, 10:43:16 AM
"Well we can, but they don't always answer." Carter leaned forward.  "They tend to be busy, you know. Or in some cases, just Royal Arseholes."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 11:28:24 AM
Giovanni watched over everyone and crossed his arms over his chest, swallowing quietly as his eyes glanced from person to person. Everyone was fairly attractive in their own respects so having a godly heritage could certainly lend to that. He saw the girl backing into the corner and tilted his head slightly glancing away and paying attention to the discussion at hand. “Well whatever the cause, I can’t be here long. I have to get back to the barracks.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 12:06:49 PM
"I've tried, but he never responds," Henry admitted bitterly, "This is the most contact I've had with him since the day he told him everything," Henry said, "he's probably too busy or he's off making more children that he'll forget all about until they do something interesting" he grumbled.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 12:54:32 PM
"Someone's bitter," Elisha mused. She cast a look around the room. "Right, so, teleporter, ghost whisperers, fortune teller, fire starter..." she said, listing the predominant powers she could remember. "My question is, how have you managed to hide away for so long, if you're all in one place?" She didn't know their histories, but she assumed everyone was from around this region more or less.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 12:56:12 PM
"Probably by keeping low and trying not to draw attention to our abilities so we don't get hanged," Casiel snapped at her. Something about her attitude really irked him. "And what about you? What can you do?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 12:57:09 PM
“I try not to speak with many living people,” Mateline said darkly. “Work in the back room of the seamstress shop, never really associate with people.”

"A series of excellent questions." Carter replied. "I've kept hidden by staying on the move the past few years. As for powers, well....." He reached over, plucked the fire iron from beside the grate, and twisted it into a corkscrew.

Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 01:16:32 PM
"I don't have a power," Elisha said again, responding to Casiel. She didn't know if his ghosts would tell him otherwise (though, they probably were), but she planned to stick to her story for the time being. This day was just getting weird; she may have to abandon her job and skip town, because she wasn't sure getting to know this lot was a good idea.

Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 01:22:33 PM

"Yes you do. Either that or the ghosts are lying." And as far as he could tell ghosts couldn't lie. "But keep acting like you don't, if it makes you feel better," he jeered. If they had all been outed he'd return the favour. It was only fair.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 01:38:47 PM
Matelines head snapped around to stare at Elisha, a mix of shock and betrayal running through her. The ghosts had clearly not seen it as important to tell her the girl was lying. “You’ve been lying this whole time?” She snapped.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 01:44:02 PM
Annoyance flickered on Elisha's face. "I was," she said to Mateline coldly, but eyeing Casiel. "But if you really want to know..." she took in a deep breath, and, as she did, the air thinned and began draining from the room.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 02:11:35 PM
Henry stared at the girl with a frown, feeling like it was growing more difficult to breathe, "That is remarkable," he got out, "Now please stop!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:13:07 PM
She kept going for another moment, but then gave up, letting the air back into the room. "Now you all know."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 02:15:04 PM
Casiel stared at the girl, quite shocked. That power was... terrifying. He made a mental note not to get on her bad side, any more than he probably already had. "So..." he began awkwardly. "Anyone know where to go from here?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 18, 2018, 02:23:35 PM
Carter stared at Elisha in horror. Dear gods this woman was terrifying. "If possible, we should stick together. There are people, and....other things that wish us harm."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:25:40 PM
"No," Elisha said. "Staying together will draw attention to us, which is the last thing any of us need. Unless, of course, the Fates have something else in mind for us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 02:35:23 PM
Henry shook his head, "I wish I had something more to go on," he said in frustration; why would his father lead him to this place with all these other demi gods?

A horrible pain suddenly shot through Henry's head and he fell to his knees. The debilitating agony was accompanied by an even worse vision of guards making their way for the Inn, then those same guards going up the stairs towards the room.
"No!" he cried, clutching his head as another vision assaulted his mind; the guards capturing them, despite efforts to fight them off. "Run! Oh god, run!" he yelled; he had no idea how much time they had.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:37:15 PM
Elisha looked at Henry. "What is it?" she asked, a nervous snap in her voice. "What do you see?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 02:43:11 PM
"Run? Run from what?" Casiel asked. He rushed to the window, then pulled away in a panic. "The king's guard," he hissed. "From the looks of the weapons they're carrying they're not here on a routine inspection. We have to go!"

Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 02:44:19 PM
“I’ve been on the run for 13 years,” Giovanni explained for himself, “I’ve travelled here from Italy originally.” Gio then looked at the man with the visions and swallowed roughly. He put his hands out to the people around him and swallowed, “I’ve never teleported more than one person, might as well give it a shot. Hold hands, let’s see if I can get us out of here.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:45:38 PM
"Or we could always kill them from afar. It's not like they would ever figure it out," Elisha offered, outstretching her hand to Gio and Mateline, who was closest to her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 02:47:52 PM
"I don't know about you people, but I am not a killer," Casiel said, taking Giovanni's hand. "I say we get ourselves out of this building, run like mad, then maybe forget any of this happened."

Henry was immobilized on the ground, whimpering as the pain gradually subsided. "We don't get away," he got out, sounding terrified. That was the most probably outcome; there was of course a chance of escape but it was not likely.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 02:52:38 PM
"Right then, we have to kill them," Elisha said. "If we can't escape them."

Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 02:55:04 PM
Just hold hands,” Gio told them all, using his voice, annoyed with the boy on the ground who was just a whimpering mess. “Let’s get out of here now”

(I think that's everyone, right? If you aren't connected, just...come along anyway.)

Gio closed his eyes, imagining the nearby docks, where there would be a boat they could steal or a ship they could stowaway on. He squeezed his hands and then...

When Gio opened his eyes, he stumbled, falling against Casiel as they stood in the sand, he was suddenly very weak, his legs barely holding him as he breathed hard. He did it. They were there...at the docks.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 03:46:44 PM
Mateline didn’t immediately drop Elisha’s hand when they arrived, instead squeezing it harder as she looked around in shock. She felt mildly nauseous, and all of the last hours revelations were hitting her full force. “Jesus Christ,” she swore. “Now that’s some ability.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 03:52:15 PM
Elisha steadied herself. She felt like she was going to vomit, but she didn't want to look weak in front of all these strangers. She looked down at Mateline's hand, still holding hers, and let go, assuming that Mateline was probably angry with her for not being honest. "Why were the guards after us?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:02:19 PM
Mateline crossed her arms instinctively, frowning around her. “They must have been tipped off.” She looked around at the docks nervously, her frown deepening. “Are we supposed to just all run off together away from our lives?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 04:13:51 PM
Cas felt horribly disoriented, taking a moment to steady himself. He looked around, worried that they somehow may have been followed, but the docks were quiet. "That... that was close," he gasped. He looked at Gio. "Thank you. You may have just saved our lives."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 04:16:50 PM

Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 04:17:14 PM
Giovanni looked up at him and nodded for a moment, still trying to breath before he stood up and pulled himself off of Casiel, but then let himself fall back and sat on the ground, "Where do we go now?" he said as he held his head. Teleporting that many people was not good for his body, he hoped he didn't have to do it again soon.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:19:24 PM

(Quick question, what country is this currently?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 04:27:03 PM
<**I think I mentioned, like, UK-ish area a couple of times**>

Casiel heard shouts from the village suddenly. He didn't need the ghosts to tell him what was going on. "They're raiding the place." Looking for them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 04:28:22 PM
Giovanni looked over at the village and then back at the others and shook his head, "If I try to teleport us all again further, I don't think my body will handle that. I'll be like our friend over there," he said, motioning to Henry, throwing up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:32:47 PM
Mateline resolutely clenched her fists, looking towards the village and then at the boats. “Get on that boat,” she said, pointing. “We need to get out of here.” She would burn the place down if she had to, they were not going to be killed tonight.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 04:33:08 PM
(Right ok that's what I thought, just making sure. Only asking because at this point in history, there is a lot of tension between England and Scotland, the UK hasn't yet been formed, all that, so them moving around may prove difficult and that could be weaved into a plot point)

"Well I can't go north," Elisha said, frustrated. "I still think it would make sense for us to separate, at least into smaller groups. It'll be harder for them to track us that way. We can rendez-vous somewhere else if you all are adamant that we're meant to be together for a reason."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 18, 2018, 04:40:35 PM
Henry was horribly embarrassed but the visions, coupled with the sudden teleportation had not been good for him. He wiped off his mouth and struggled to get up, "We shouldn't separate," Henry spoke up
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 04:44:28 PM
Her eyes flicked to Cas, not willing to leave a potential sibling  she was confident she had been led to him and the others by some unknown force. And the longer Mateline thought, the more sense it made for her father to be a god. Why else did she have the abilities she did?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 18, 2018, 04:47:09 PM
"Anybody actually know how to sail?" Casiel asked, slowly inching towards one of the ships. "I'd say that drowning may be a little bit worse than being captured."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 04:50:43 PM
Elisha eyed the boat. "I can try to help steer the boat by adjusting the air in the sail, but I can't promise it'll be much help. The sea is Poseidon's domain. We'd be far better off if there was one of his kids among us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 04:53:59 PM
"Pretty sure that's not going to be me, but I agree, we should get on the boat and soon," Gio said and reached his hand out so someone would help him up, "Let's go."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 04:56:59 PM
Against her better judgement, Elisha reached down to help Gio up. She clasped his hand, pulling him towards her so he could get up. "Never use those suggestive powers on me again," she warned in a low voice, "or I will remove all the air from your lungs."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 18, 2018, 05:01:31 PM
Gio raised an eyebrow at her and smirked a little, "Not if I told you to stop," he replied in a whisper and then pulled his hand away and rolled his eyes, "I wouldn't use it to harm you or anyone else. I just felt we needed to go in haste. Calm down."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 18, 2018, 05:03:30 PM
Elisha scowled at him. She didn't trust him. She didn't trust any of them. But it seemed that, for now at least, she was stuck with them. She eyed the boat again. "We'll need to set a course of some sort," she said. "We can't just float around on a stolen sail boat forever with no supplies."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 18, 2018, 05:10:20 PM
Mateline stared at them all, a disgruntled look settling on her face as Elisha spoke. “We’ll figure it out along the way.” That girl planned too much, sometimes you just had to act.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 08:41:42 AM
Casiel was already up on the ship. He felt something moving him, tugging him to escape with the others, and it filled him with excitement. For the first time he had a real direction, he wasn't just sitting around waiting for his old life to catch up to him. He started preparing the sails, the lines not much different than on the docks. "I'd suggest you all make up your minds about whether or not you're coming," he called to the others.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 08:45:40 AM
Elisha eyed the boat, debating. She didn't want to get on a boat going to Gods-knew-where with a bunch of strangers, but what choice were the Fates giving her? "Fine," she said, heading over to the boat and getting on.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on December 19, 2018, 08:58:22 AM
"What do you need me to do?" Carter asked, eyes watching the town for signs of pursuit.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 09:10:23 AM
Gio made his way onto the ship and leaned against the side, watching the town as well for anything to be worried about, "Just head southeast, towards Spain or France." he suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 09:15:49 AM
"Spain may be wiser," Elisha said. "I've heard that the French are making alliances with the Scots against England; all ports will be on high alert. At least with Spain it won't be as bad, one would hope."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 09:49:57 AM
Mateline was on the boat without any hesitation. She felt such a strong pull towards these people. “Do any of us know the gods well?” She cut in, glancing around. It didn’t matter much to her where they went. Her curiosity to know who her father was was far too strong.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 09:55:16 AM
Elisha stayed quiet. She knew that denying would put her at risk of the ghosts outing her again, so she just didn't respond, hoping someone else would.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 12:41:29 PM
"I'm pretty sure most of us didn't even know the gods existed until twenty minutes ago," Casiel replied. He glanced back to the shore and, sure enough, the guards were approaching. "Let's hope things work out, cause I honestly have no idea what I'm doing," he said as he began to raise the anchor. "Someone ought to man the wheel!."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 12:45:50 PM
Henry had joined them on the boat, not seeing any other options. "I guess I know them better than most of you," he said, "but still, not really." he admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 12:48:52 PM
Mateline jumped onto the wheel, though she had no clue what she was doing. She glanced at Henry and frowned. What if her father never revealed himself to her? How would she ever know who he was?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 12:54:53 PM
Henry raised an eyebrow, catching her staring at him, "You know, if you can see ghosts I think it's pretty obvious who your father is..." he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 12:57:00 PM
Her eyes snapped away from him, turning to a sour expression. "Nothing is obvious, headache boy." But her ears were perked to listen, know what he thought.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 12:57:58 PM
"And who would that be?" Cas asked. They had the same power, but would that actually mean they shared family? "I don't know anything about this mythology stuff or these gods."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 01:00:55 PM
Henry knew very little; he had tried to find books but his small village had limited resources. No one really cared to read about a dead religion. "Hades, god of the underworld," he said, "just a thought of course. I could be wrong"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 01:01:57 PM
"This is all well and good, but we should save this conversation for later because otherwise Hades will be collecting us," Elisha said, eyeing the guards that were fast approaching. "We need to go, now."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 01:11:49 PM
"Then use that wind power of yours or whatever! Give us some speed." Cas ran to the side of the boat, undoing the last tether. He almost had it undone when one of the guards loosed an arrow, hitting him right in the shoulder.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 01:13:54 PM
She turned, and blew wind into the sail, hoping it would take. She could control air, not wind; whether or not it would move according to her bidding was still up for question. The sail inflated though, which left her a little relieved.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 01:20:40 PM
Mateline felt slightly useless, but when the guards attacked she reached out with her mind, searching for their fears and started working on making them live them out. It took intense focus, it wasn't a power she practiced often, so she gripped the edge of the boat. It wasn't the most useful, she could only take them on one by one, but she didn't have a healing power for Cas and she wasn't any good with boats.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 01:28:12 PM
The guards backed off, watching from a safe distance as the ship took off. Casiel slumped to the ground, pulling the arrow out of his shoulder, holding the wound to try and stop the bleeding.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 01:30:10 PM
Elisha let up on the sail after a few blows; the sail was now up and there wasn't much more she could do for it. She went over to Casiel, taking a look at the blood. "I don't suppose anyone here has healing abilities?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 01:33:09 PM
Mateline stepped away from the edge of the ship, keeping her distance but staring at Casiel. "I don't remember who, but somebody does I think." She looked around at the people that she barely knew, trying to figure it out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 01:34:59 PM
Elisha thought for a moment. Apollo boy had mentioned healing abilities, hadn't he? She turned to him. "If you can help, now would be a good time."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 01:43:03 PM
Henry nodded slowly, "I...I can try," he said, "i'll admit I've only really done this once," he admitted, already approaching Cas. He gently lay his hands on the wound, focusing his power on closing up the wound; the colour drained from Henry's cheeks, feeling Cas' pain as he healed the arrow wound
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 01:45:57 PM
The pain subsided quite a bit, as did the wound, though a scar was left behind. Henry looked like he was about to be sick again. "You didn't have to do that, I would have been fine."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 01:49:40 PM
Henry pulled his hands off and wiped the blood off on his pants, "it's fine. I wasn't about to let you bleed out when I can heal you. Besides, I really need to practice that," he admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 01:51:37 PM
Mateline stepped a little closer, concerned. She didn't feel very comfortable getting any closer to them, still distrustful. The reality was settling in, they had run off together immediately after meeting. This may not have been the best plan.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 01:52:15 PM
Elisha stood back up, having been crouching down. She looked back to the shore that was getting farther away. So much for her job there. She'd have to find a new client elsewhere, unfortunately. "So, to Spain?" she asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 02:23:06 PM
"To Spain," Mateline echoed, crossing her arms. "And then what? We all get a house together and live happily ever after?" she asked sarcastically.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 02:30:43 PM
"I don't know about you all, but I'm heading to Greece," Casiel said. "These so-called gods know who I am and what happened to my memories. I'm sure of it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 03:13:12 PM
"To Greece?" She didn't particularly like the idea, however if she had a brother, she wasn't going to let him slip away. "I'll go." She rubbed the back of her neck.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 03:18:21 PM
"You don't have to," Casiel told her, now well enough to get to his feet. "This is my own mission; it's personal."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 03:23:28 PM
"Well you'll need to decide, since Spain and Greece are kind of in opposite directions," Elisha pointed out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 03:25:12 PM
"I'm not doing this for you," she said defensively. She didn't need anybody to know the extent to which she cared about finding people like her. She had never had a sense of belonging.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 03:31:30 PM
Gio has no comments about gods and goddesses. He stood on the edge of the boat and gripped the railing. He was pissed. He had done so much, come so far, sacrificed it all to become a knight and he was so close and now what...this group of strangers was dragging him away from a good future. When Casiel mentioned going to Greece, he took a deeper breath and curled head into his chest, “Really?” He muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 03:44:36 PM
"Spain, then. I'll head to Greece from there," Casiel said. He then noticed Gio, who seemed quite upset about something. "What's your problem?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 04:00:07 PM
“I gave up using my powers for five years so I could have a normal life and become a knight. And just when I’m about to have it....this all happens,” Giovanni’s told him and then looked to Cas and gently pushed the fabric back on his shirt just enough to see the healed wound, “You’re alright?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 04:14:20 PM
Cal flinched under his touch. "I'm fine," he said quickly. Truthfully he was beginning to feel a little ill, but that was probably just the adrenaline wearing off. "You didn't have to come, you know. You could have told those guards you were trying to capture us or something."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 04:16:38 PM
Elisha noticed Mateline was standing off to the side, away from the rest of them. She sighed, and approached the girl slowly. She probably should apologize for lying, but then again, it's not like she had known the girl for long or was lying for malicious reasons. She was just trying to protect herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 04:17:24 PM
Gio pulled his hand away when Casiel flinched and diverted his eyes for a moment before swallowing. He turned, leaning against the rail, "It doesn't work that way....It has...weird effects on groups of people. I'm surprised you all held hands earlier when I used it." he then looked back at Cas for a moment, "And...part of me wants to know too. What all this is for."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 04:18:41 PM
Mateline stiffened as Elisha came closer to her, still upset about the lies. "You want something?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 04:24:09 PM
"And what if nothing comes of this? What if we never find the gods or any reasoning for all this?" Casiel asked, leaning against the railing and staring out into the water. "You'd have given up everything for nothing."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 04:27:54 PM
"I can go back at any moment," Giovanni reminded him with a smirk, "If the danger becomes too much, if...this is all fruitless, I can blink my eyes and I'm ho---" Gio stopped and grit his teeth, looking out at the sea. "I'm--back with the other knights, ready to step up, just say I lost my way in the village after the raid."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 04:29:20 PM
"I want to know how you're doing," Elisha said, stopping and standing a few feet from Mateline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 04:32:46 PM
She cast an icy glance at the girl. “What kind of question is that?” She hissed. “I’m on a boat surrounded by strangers and the one person I thought I could trust was lying to me about everything. And we’re being hunted.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 04:38:05 PM
Elisha rolled her eyes. "No need for dramatics. I didn't lie about everything. I just met you, I hardly know you, how do you figure that I should tell you every detail about myself and my abilities. It's a bit preposterous, don't you think?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 04:40:25 PM
“It’s not as if I could have ratted you out without putting myself in danger,” She grumbled. Some of what Elisha was saying made sense, but she’d be damned if she admitted it. Mateline huffed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 04:41:03 PM
Casiel noticed his little slip up, but chose not to say anything. "So I guess you have nothing to worry about, then? Might as well go on a crazy adventure."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 04:43:46 PM
"I wasn't about to risk it," Elisha said. "I've met some questionable people over the years. How am I to know you aren't as questionable as they were."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 04:45:46 PM
Gio chuckled, "I think we all have something to worry about. We just boarded a ship with complete strangers we don't know who have mystical abilities from so called Gods, with no plan, no real set course. We haven't even checked for food or drinking water." Giovanni looked around and then at the door that led below deck, "Or if there's bunks or hammocks. This isn't a day's journey and I'm not going to just...let you all die."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 19, 2018, 04:46:27 PM
She scowled and looked the other direction. “I don’t like being lied to,” she said in a harsh voice. “For whatever reason.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 04:55:04 PM
"Guess we probably should have thought things through," Cas said glumly, now sitting down. He was still hopeful, though. Somewhere along this journey he would find out who he was.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 19, 2018, 04:56:25 PM
Elisha sighed. She didn't know why she was bothering with this girl. She'd been on her own for a long time and had been just fine. That being said, there was a small part of her screaming that the companionship was enjoyable. Elisha hated that small part of herself.

"Well fine, what do you want to know?" she asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 04:57:51 PM
"Come along. Let's access the situation below deck," Giovanni told Casiel, patting his good shoulder before heading to the door.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 05:01:04 PM
Casiel grunted as he got to his feet, following Giovanni below deck. "At any rate I know how to fish, so we'd have food covered. Water is another story."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 05:06:33 PM
Gio looked around the bottom floor and wasn't surprised to find just many hammocks with old worn blankets in them, "These are not going to be the most comfortable beds. I can already heard complaints from some of the women....especially that one who was raised by the Lord and Lady," he commented with a wry smile. He then ventured on, looking for the galley.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 05:08:27 PM
"She didn't have to come either," Cas grumbled. "None of them did. In fact, we're still close enough to the shore. If any of them have an issue they can swim back while they still can."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Post by: MercyResurrected on December 19, 2018, 05:12:03 PM
Gio chuckled at him and then pushed his hair back behind his ear. He took a deep breath and then pushed aside a curtain and nodded, "Found our galley." He called and went over to the first barrel and with some visible use of strength, he opened the top and smiled, "Salted Pork."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 19, 2018, 05:23:20 PM
"Well that takes care of food, then," Cas replied, taking note of how many barrels there were. He also, understandably, took note of how strong Gio was, but quickly squashed those thoughts down. He was on a personal mission, he couldn't get distracted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 19, 2018, 05:24:06 PM
Henry had never stepped foot on a boat and for good reason; he was so far not enjoying the experience. He was on the ground, face dreadfully pale, trying not to throw up  again. It was certainly going to be a long journey.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 12:41:09 AM
Mateline wasn’t quite expecting it to be that easy. “Oh. Well, how did you find out about your powers?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 02:00:11 AM
Elisha looked out off the boat into the distance. Why’d she let Mateline in so quickly? “My father tried to have me killed but I escaped. And then I killed him.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 02:50:32 AM
Mateline’s eyebrows shot up at that. So she had killed before. But it had been in self defence right? That was forgivable. “My mother died when I was young, so I never had to deal with anything like that.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 03:05:55 AM
“Count yourself lucky,” Elisha said. “I had to watch my mother be killed at my father’s - well, technically not my father, Lord Moray - wishes. And then he got to move on and live his happily ever after,” she said bitterly. “Well, not for long.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 03:13:30 AM
“Hold on,” Gio said to Casiel as he checked two more barrels, one full of hard tack crackers, “Oh good. More than just pork” he said and then smirked, “prunes, in this one. The girls will be happy hopefully” Giovanni saw a different barrel then over in the corner and noticed it’s had a corked hole on the top. He then looked at Casiel, “Find a cup. This is definitely ale. And I need a drink”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 03:41:29 AM
"Guess this ship was stocked for an upcoming journey," Cas said, rummaging through a few odds and ends. He eventually came across a couple mugs. "Here," he said, tossing one to Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 04:01:15 AM

Gio caught it and then set it down before picking up the barrel, again showing some definite strength, putting it on its side and taking his mug and pulling the cork, letting his mug fill and then Casiel’s before tipping it back up and replacing the cork, “And what shall we drink to, fellow son of the gods,” he teased.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 04:11:41 AM
Casiel thought for a moment, then raised his glass. "To finding out exactly what the hell this is all about."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 04:46:56 AM
Gio raises his cup as well, “I can drink to that,” he replied and took a long drink from it. He then pulled his mug from his face and let out a breath, “So you really don’t like it when I pop about? Just coming and going? It can’t be that big of a surprise. You see ghosts after all”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 06:21:23 AM
Mateline frowned at that comment. “You have more plans, I take it,” she shifted a little, becoming less stiff and more open.

"Ghosts don't just appear out of nowhere," Cas explained. "I can usually sense them before I see them. With your appearing and disappearing it's completely random. It's just... I don't know. I don't like surprises.'

“I’ll make sure to always appear directly behind you and tap your shoulder whenever I need your attention,” Giovanni told him and laughed. He then finished his ale and looked upward at the ceiling, “Should we head back up to the others?” He asked, feeling a warmth between him and Cas that  was new but made him...slightly uneasy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 07:25:57 AM
"Yeah, yeah we probably should," Cas replied, quickly downing the rest of his drink. "I'm sure the others will want to know about our discovery." He headed for the door, but then stumbled, just managing to catch himself on the doorframe before he was overcome with nausea. "Great... just great," he hissed. Apparently he got sea sick.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 07:45:46 AM
 Gio kept his balance and put his hand on Cas’ side. “Woah there. No sea legs on ya, fisherman?” He asked with a smirk. He then pulled his hand away and sighed, “Come on. You can wretch over the rail,” Gio chided as he headed upstairs.

"I had plans," Elisha replied. "But those plans seem to have changed now that we're on this boat. I suppose I could always dock somewhere and be on my way but I have the sense that the Fates have something in mind for us all. Why else would we have met in time to be chased down by guards, when we were all living our lives in relative peace before meeting? There must be a reason that we are all together."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 08:05:40 AM
"Never went out on a boat before. They always made me stay on the docks," Cas explained, stumbling up the stairs after him. He felt absolutely terrible, more than he imagined sea sickness was. Like he had a fever. What's more, his shoulder had started to burn. He carefully pulled down his collar, examining the wound. It was turning black, as were the veins surrounding the injury. "The... the arrow was poisoned," he managed to stammer.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 08:47:31 AM
Gio turned around and his eyes grew wide as he made Cas sit down on the top of the stairs, “Hey, one of you healers! Come here,” he called and took a knife from a cord around his neck that was under his tunic, “alive gotta reopen the wound for ya to get it out,” he warned Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 08:57:12 AM
Cas's eyes widened in terror. "Are you sure... sure you know what you're doing?" he managed to ask.

<**for the record, nothing they do will stop the poison cause I have a plan. And Stina, you may have the vision at any time now**>
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 09:08:48 AM
Elisha heard the noise from down below. "If you have more questions, save them for later," she said to Mateline. She turned and made her way down the stairs, seeing Cas's shoulder darkening with poison. "Oh Gods..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 10:06:56 AM
Henry scrambled to his feet, hearing Gio call for him. When he saw Cas’ shoulder he was not sure if he could do anything to help, “I...I don’t know if I can,” he admitted, placing his hands on the wound anyway to try. It was soon clear that his ability couldn’t help cas and so he took his hands off, shaking his head , “I...I’m sorry” he said

(Will do, probably later though)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 10:19:21 AM
Casiel was now breathing hard, the burning pain now spreading down his arm. "Wh-what kind of poison is this?" He murmured, looking around as if one of them had the answer.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 10:30:08 AM
Mateline had come close, a protective instinct surging within her. “There has to be something we can do!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 11:04:05 AM
“When one of the knights got bit by a snake, we opened the wound and sucked the poison out. I could try that,” Gio offered, but it looked like the poison had already spread too far, “But it maybe too late” He then grit his teeth.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 11:05:20 AM
"You don't even know what kind of poison it is," Elisha said. "Sucking it out could get you infected too, and then you'll both be dying."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 12:49:29 PM
Mateline felt ill at the sight of the poison spreading through Cas’ body. Shaking her head, she stepped below decks, knowing she wouldn’t be able to help at the moment and needed to get herself under control.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 12:58:12 PM
Henry backed away, feeling disappointed in himself. Cas would probably die because he wasn't powerful enough to save him.
He closed his eyes, trying to concentrate on his other ability; maybe something would come to him if he actually tried to control it, rather than it controlling him. Henry focused his thoughts on Cas, on an outcome that resulted in him surviving. He saw many visions of attempts to remove the poison, all resulting in Cas' death. He was about to give up, feeling too weakened by the overuse of his abilities, when he was brought to his knees by a troubling vision.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 01:29:10 PM
Casiel watched Henry, knowing full well that he was using that future-seeing ability of his. And whatever the future held didn't look good. "What? What did you see?" he asked, growing more and more pale, from the poison and from fear.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 01:50:55 PM
Henry opened his eyes, breathing hard as he tried to process what he'd seen; it was not good.
"I...I know where we have to go," Henry said, fixing his gaze on Cas, "There's only one person with a cure," he said quietly
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 02:19:40 PM
"Now would be a good time to share, Apollo-boy," Elisha said, still on the stairs. She was keeping her distance from Cas and the whole poison situation. She'd worked with herbs enough to know that with some things, being even remotely close to the infected person could cause the poison to pass onto the next person, and she wasn't about to die here today.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 04:54:28 PM
oops, forgot about this :P)

"Those guards, I don't think they are royal guards; they returned to some woman. I think she sent them after us," Henry said, "I also had a vision of us getting a cure for Cas from her," he told them. "It was the only outcome I could foresee with Cas surviving" he said, "if we hurry"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
"Then let's go, please, quickly," Casiel gasped. He didn't want to die. He didn't want to become like the spirits that haunted him.

<**hhhmmmm I'm gonna say she's in Scotland, so they don't have very far to go**>
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 05:04:59 PM
(ouu Scotland is where Elisha was fleeing from; I can tinker with her story)

"Directionally, where are we headed?" Elisha asked. "We have to set a new course, because as it stands, we're headed south west."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 05:13:47 PM
Henry tried to recall all the details of his vision, "I am fairly certain that it was Scotland," he replied
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 20, 2018, 05:35:12 PM
Scotland. “Where in Scotland?” She asked stiffly. She couldn’t go back to Scotland; she was a wanted killer there, and had been of fairly high profile in her old life there.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 20, 2018, 05:36:55 PM
Giovanni felt a tinge of guilt at the idea of Casiel dying from this. It was his fault Cas had revealed that he had powers, his fault they'd gone to the inn to talk more, his fault they got to the docks. "Alright, so we direct to Scotland. Don't crowd him too much. He still needs breathing room. We did find food, ale, and I think there's a barrel of water as well downstairs in the galley. We can get more supplies in Scotland as well before Greece."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 20, 2018, 05:44:20 PM
<**tbh I have no idea where in scotland because I'm too lazy to look up cities and names at this point in time so just... random unnamed city? Idk suspend disbelief go wild who cares not me**>

Cas had now lied down, the burning sensation replaced with weakness. He'd never felt so weak. "Some demigod," he murmured. "Taken out by a little poison."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 20, 2018, 05:46:08 PM
"I don't know, it was some big city," Henry replied, looking at Cas with concern, "You are not going to die; we are going to get this cure," he said firmly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 20, 2018, 11:39:35 PM
Mateline came back, having composed herself below decks. She noticed the changing of course. “Where are we going?” She asked, looking at Casiel who only seemed to be getting worse.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 21, 2018, 07:17:57 AM
Elisha paled. "Edinburgh, most likely," she said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 21, 2018, 12:10:35 PM
"Scotland?" Mateline frowned and crossed her arms. "Will we make it quick enough?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 21, 2018, 01:50:06 PM
Casiel looked at Giovanni. "I don't suppose you could use that power of yours...?" he managed to ask. Probably not, but it was worth a shot.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 21, 2018, 03:17:31 PM
Gio looked at him and nodded, “I can try. If it will help you, I will do whatever I can,” Giovanni told him. He took a deep breath and then put his hands out, “Hold hands and everyone thing of Edinburgh” he said and put his hands out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 21, 2018, 03:21:02 PM
He sat up slowly, carefully, taking Giovanni's hand. "Just... try not to drop us in the middle of the ocean. I'm not the biggest fan of water."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 21, 2018, 03:38:28 PM
Henry took hold of someone's hand, not wanting to be left behind on the boat. He focused his mind on Edinburgh, which was easier for him after seeing it in his vision.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 21, 2018, 03:41:18 PM
"I will make my best effort," Gio told him and nodded as he gripped their hands tighter.

Post by: Mara-la on December 21, 2018, 03:48:20 PM
Elisha closed her eyes, thinking of the city. She didn't want to go back there now, but it seemed she had to. She pictured the more fun parts of it; the markets, mostly.

(Alright, here we go!)

With his eyes tightly shut, Giovanni murmured the name of the city to himself just for reassuring, since he'd never been there and then...

When Gio opened his eyes, he looked around and while a big grin came to his lips, he almost instantly fell to his knees and panted for air. He felt so weak. He'd used so much energy over this, but....it'd worked! They were there...in Scotland. He waved at the others, "Get Casiel to the healer. I'll catch my breath."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 22, 2018, 05:12:11 PM
<**they're located in an abandoned building, just fyi**>

"You..." Casiel gasped, looking around. It was incredible. Barely a second had passed and they had traveled miles. "You're incredible, Giovanni. You and... you and this power of yours."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 22, 2018, 05:13:17 PM
Mateline stared around in awe before reaching out for Cas. “Come on, we have to get you there quickly.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 22, 2018, 05:17:36 PM
Gio just sat there on his knees and smiled, glad to have helped, but still pleading for his lungs to find air internally. He eventually turned and laid out on his back, hands on his chest as he stared at the ceiling and then closed his eyes, "You guys go ahead...I'm gonna rest here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 22, 2018, 05:20:07 PM
Henry would never get used to Giovanni's strange ability; it felt worst than being trapped on that ship. While trying to fight back the nausea, he glanced around the city. "This way," he announced and started walking towards a part of the city that seemed familiar to him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 22, 2018, 05:41:41 PM
Casiel stumbled to his feet with Mateline's help. "You know... where you're going?" He asked Henry, before realizing it was a stupid question. Of course he did.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 22, 2018, 05:43:38 PM
Henry nodded, "I believe so; it seems familiar," he said, "Hopefully I'm not wrong," Henry added
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 22, 2018, 05:45:02 PM
Mateline helped Cas walk as best she could so that they could follow Henry. “Is this safe?” She asked, knowing it was a stupid question. None of this was safe.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 22, 2018, 05:45:39 PM
“Do we just leave him here, or should I wait with him?” Elisha asked, pointing at Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 22, 2018, 05:47:08 PM
"Of course it is not safe," Henry said, 'But we really don't have a choice," Henry said, looking at Cas worried.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 01:53:26 AM
Casiel didn't want to leave Gio behind; the man had saved his life, after all. But before he could state this the group was approached by five strangers, each wearing a mask and armed to the teeth.

"The Master wishes to see you," one, a man, said. He nodded to two of his comrades, then at Giovanni. "Carry that one. The Master wants them all."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 23, 2018, 02:13:38 AM
Giovanni looked over at the group when he heard new voices and his eyes got wide when he was referenced. “Oh hell,” he said and attempted to sit up but just fell back, “Christ....”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 23, 2018, 02:15:38 AM
Mateline stared at the people in shock and gripped Cas tighter. “Who are you people?” She asked in a shaky voice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 02:31:08 AM
Elisha eyed the masked men warily. Why did she even come back to Scotland? She was going to ask who they were, but Mateline did first and so she just waited.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 23, 2018, 03:46:39 AM
Henry said nothing as they were met by the armed men. He had foreseen it all unfold in his vision; he had purposefully left parts put so not to scare the group off. It was the only way to save cas. He looked away from them all, feeling like he’d betrayed them
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 03:48:57 AM
Elisha crept up behind Henry. “You know what this is,” she hissed. “Mind sharing?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 23, 2018, 03:54:07 AM
“I’m so sorry!” Henry blurted out, turning to face them, “I knew they would take us. But...he was going to die otherwise,” he tried to reason.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 05:22:19 AM
"Get a move on, or you're all getting shot," another one, carrying a crossbow, barked.

The man who spoke earlier helped Cas to his feet, while two others supported Gio. "This way," Crossbow ordered, leading them down into the streets.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 23, 2018, 02:02:16 PM
Gio looked at Henry and let out a deep breath, “You did what you had to,” he said, being understanding. He’d done a lot of thing people might not think right to get things to move forward.

Henry lowered his head, feeling ashamed nonetheless. He went with the armed men with no arguments; he knew fighting would get them no where.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 04:20:51 PM
The group was led through narrow winding streets before coming at a stop in front of a large, dark building. It stood before them ominously, like an omen of death, which Cas was sure it was. The group was lead inside, the interior of the building mostly empty, save for what almost looked like a throne in the center. Upon it sat a young woman with red hair.

"Ah," she said, mouth spreading in a wide grin. "It's a good thing my soldiers got to you in time. Next time, do yourselves a favour, and don't run from me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 23, 2018, 04:24:54 PM
Mateline stared at the woman incredulously. “We might not run if we knew who you are,” he commented, trying to come off as confident and strong.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 04:27:29 PM
Elisha eyed the woman carefully. Just who was this?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 04:30:08 PM
"Name's Nataliya," the woman replied. "And I'm the one who can cure your little friend. See, I manufactured that poison, and I have the only antidote."

Cas glanced on the others, still using one of the strangers for support. There had to be a catch...
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 23, 2018, 04:32:52 PM
“So give us the antidote,” she replied simply, stepping forward as bravely as she could muster. “And well be on our way.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 23, 2018, 04:35:28 PM
Henry glared up at the woman, knowing exactly the cost for Cas's life. He wished there was another way.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 04:37:08 PM
Nataliya just laughed. "You really think I'd just give it to you? Oh no, I'll give it to you. But then I want something in return. See, I know exactly what you all are, and your abilities are useful. I give you the cure, and you work for me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 04:38:09 PM
"Work for you?" Elisha asked. "Just what do you want us to do?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 23, 2018, 04:53:00 PM
Despite being weak, Gio was watching and listening and continued to glance at Cas, worried that the longer they argued, the more time they'd lose. They could always find a way out of this later, he could teleport them to Timbuktu if he had enough strength. But right now, they needed that antidote, "Elisha, it doesn't matter. Cas is going to die. If you don't want to help, then you can negotiate that on your own life's time."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 23, 2018, 05:13:43 PM
"We'll do it, just give us the cure!" Henry spoke up, "We don't have time to waste," he added, looking at Cas then back at the woman.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 05:17:50 PM
“Why should I devote my services to an unknown person to save someone I’ve just met?” Elisha snapped back as anger flared. “No, I want to know exactly what we’re doing. Any self-respecting person would.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 23, 2018, 05:26:02 PM
"I swear to God, Elisa, if you don't just go along with this, I will not think twice when your life if in danger," Giovanni snapped at her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 23, 2018, 05:28:44 PM
"Okay, here's a new incentive: help me or your friend will die, and I'll spread word of you and your identities and abilities as far as my influence is able to reach. And it travels far. The choice is yours," she said, sitting back in her throne.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Post by: Mara-la on December 23, 2018, 05:32:06 PM
Elisha scowled. She didn’t care about protecting the lives of essential strangers, but she did care about self preservation. “Fine,” she said, hostility clearly evident.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 05:10:06 AM
"Excellent!" Nataliya exclaimed cheerily, clapping her hands together. She snapped her fingers and another person entered the room, holding a small bottle. The two holding Cas lied him down, allowing the one with the antidote to help him drink it.

"Manticore toxin sure would have been a horrible way to die," Nataliya mused as her followers worked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 06:56:33 AM
Gio pushed off the guards that had been holding him, knowing he could stand on his own. He crossed his arms for a moment and then looked at the woman on the throne. "Tell us who you are and how you discovered us," he demanded, using his voice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 07:09:10 AM
"I run the underground networks of this city," Nataliya explained. "Criminal networks, you could say, although I think of it more as legal technicalities. As for how I know who you are, let's just say I have amazing intuition about this sort of thing," she added with a smirk.

The antidote took effect almost immediately. Cas was able to sit up on his own, though his head was still spinning.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 07:12:07 AM
Criminal work. Of course. Did this woman expect them to sell their souls too? "So what kind of jobs do you want us to do?" Elisha said. "Now that we've all agreed to be your minions, I think it's fair you tell us."

"It's your power, isn't it? Identifying us? Being able to find those of us with abilities?" Gio asked, his eyes glancing to Cas, looking to see if the antidote was working.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 07:29:46 AM
She nodded. "Clever boy. I can see things that are currently happening, especially if it involves those with powers. And I must say I was intrigued to see a group of you coming together." She turned to Elisha. "Oh, nothing too difficult. Assassinate a few nobles here and there. I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem for you, of all people."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 07:54:27 AM
Elisha smirked. She didn't like this woman, but there was some truth to what she said. "Do they deserve it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 07:57:58 AM
Gio furrowed his brows as he looked at Elisha and shook his head. She was so worried, so quick to fight against this woman not so long ago, nearly preventing Casiel from getting the antidote and now suddenly she was smiling? "You're going to trust her judgement of whether or not someone deserves to die?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 08:04:27 AM
Mateline stared at Elisha in disbelief. “You’ve got to be kidding. I’m not going to kill someone. I’m not a murderer.” Sure, her powers made that sort of thing easy but she had never used them for that.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 08:06:08 AM
"Well, as you all were so quick to agree and not even ask questions," Elisha said, pointedly staring at Gio. She did not like him. "I don't see why you're all so bothered. You can't have expected our tasks to be easy or innocent."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 08:18:42 AM
"I'm sorry that I was trying to save someone's life, I didn't think we'd be taking more," Giovanni snapped back at her. God, he would love to just teleport her into the middle of the ocean and then leave her there. He closed his eyes and took a breath before looking back at Nataylia, "Where will we stay?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 08:22:22 AM
(I love how much they hate eachother)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 24, 2018, 12:01:00 PM
Henry was thankful that his abilities would be of a little use if assassination was the goal. He could hardly control his visions and healing was quite the opposite of death.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 01:02:15 PM
"You can all stay here," Nataliya informed them. "I've converted this entire building into a hideout of sorts. Plus there's an entryway that leads into tunnels running through the entire city. You know, in case you want to get somewhere without being seen." She turned to Elisha again. "They deserve it for getting in my way. I suggest you don't do the same."

Casiel was finally able to stand up, though he was a little wobbly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 01:06:00 PM
Elisha couldn't help but be enamoured by this woman - Nataliya's - sense of drive and purpose. In her own childhood she had often been cast aside, and so when she embarked on her mission, she had to learn a sense of drive and purpose. Where Nataliya was now, the little Elisha knew of her anyway, was something she somewhat aspired to be. "I can understand that," Elisha said. "If someone is a problem then they should be handled. I just hope that your judgement doesn't fall like an axe on those undeserving, or children who don't know better."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 01:10:47 PM
"Can we at least rest for tonight? Get some food and drink?" Giovanni asked, deciding to take the lead for the group and get some kind of negotiation. "Casiel is in no way to start assassinating people after your...manticore poison and I'm still weak from getting us here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 01:31:20 PM
"Of course, there's a mess hall down the hall over there," Nat replied, nodding behind her. "Plenty of food for all of you. I can't have my new associates starving, now can I?"

Casiel felt the man standing behind him nudge him forward so he began to walk, wanting to get as far away from Nataliya as possible.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 01:32:20 PM
With another glance at Nataliya and the surrounding area, Elisha followed the others down towards the mess hall.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 01:35:08 PM
Gio raised an eyebrow at Nataliya one more time before watching Casiel begin down the hall and then hurrying to catch up with him. He gently put his hand on his arm, "Are you alright? Does it still hurt?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 01:46:16 PM
"Muscles are sore, but that's about it," Cas replied, rubbing his shoulder. "That woman is psychotic."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 01:47:18 PM
"We don't know that," Elisha said. "She's a bit... intense, sure, but she may not be all bad."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 01:51:42 PM
Gio slipped his hand off Casiel’s arm and shot a glance back at Elisha, “Really? You’re so eager now that she wants us to murder for her? You really must be sick in the head” Gio told her, grinding his teeth.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 01:57:31 PM
"I'm not eager," she replied tersely. "I'm just saying I understand where she comes from. If someone does something to you, you get them back. That's how the world works. It may seem unorthodox to you, but perhaps that's just because you strive to be an enforcer of a system of rules that disregards women and children entirely in favour of a man's word."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 02:30:53 PM
Gio stopped and pushed Elisha against the wall for a moment, “You listen here. You don’t know the first thing about me, daughter of the Lord and Lady.” He growled, “If anyone cares deeply about women and children being treated fairly, it would certainly be a boy who watched his mother beaten to death in the center of the village because she got too sick to pay the rent on our home when my father decided tha leaving my mother along with a child was the right thing to do. I don’t wish for a world run by men, but I’m not giving her any benefit of the doubt just because she is a woman.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 02:36:17 PM
Elisha glared at him, furious for him having touched her. She felt it rise in her body, the power she had little to no control over, the electricity. Very quickly, the points where he was touching her erupted in little sparks. "I told you not to touch me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 02:47:16 PM

Gio pulled his hand away, gasping and holding it against his chest for a moment. “Damn. You just need to learn to watch your mouth and the assumptions you make,” he told her. He then let her go and started to head towards the mess hall. He took a breath and sighed, “Guess we’ll sit together.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 02:49:08 PM
Elisha glared after him. She really, really did not like him. She went over to the table, opting to sit by Mateline. Out of the lot of them, Mateline was probably her favourite at the moment.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 02:50:30 PM
Mateline glanced beside her at Elisha. “What was that power?” She asked in a low voice, intrigued. It reminded her a bit of her own.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 02:54:05 PM
Casiel had stalked off ahead of the others, not caring to get involved in their squabbling. The tables of the mess hall were lined with food so he took an empty seat, prepared to gorge himself; fighting off the poison had left him with quite the appetite.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 03:00:37 PM
"Lightning," Elisha replied. "Sort of. I can't really control it. It doesn't come out at random though, only when I need it. It's what saved me from being burned alive." She grimaced at the memory.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 03:46:18 PM
Giovanni got some food and then sat down across from Casiel, eating in silence, feeling awkward after pretty much putting him in all this danger and now they were stuck in this sucky new life and situation.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 03:53:13 PM
Once he no longer felt faint or like throwing up, Cas turned to Giovanni. "So, uh, thanks again for using that power of yours. You saved my life."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 24, 2018, 03:58:10 PM
Henry took a seat with the others, wasting no time grabbing food as he was starving. He also had no desire of getting involved in their heated argument
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 04:08:07 PM
“I uh,” she lowered her voice so the others couldn’t hear. She didn’t understand why she felt like she could confide in someone as morally ambiguous as Elisha, but she felt a kinship. “I have similar issues. With my powers. They come out when I’m upset.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 04:09:28 PM
“I mean...this is pretty much my fault. I made you expose your powers at the tavern which made us go to the inn to discuss it more, which then had us head to the boat where you got shot and....l” Gio just shook his head, “It was my fault you got poisoned. I...I couldn’t let you just die.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 04:09:39 PM
"So you see ghosts... and you can do something else?" Elisha asked. "What happens when you get upset?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 04:12:33 PM
She pushed some food around on her plate, deciding to come clean. At least partially. “Fire,” she told her simply. “It can get destructive. I try not to let it out.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 04:18:19 PM
"Wow, you really are a Hades child, through and through," Elisha said. "Fire, dead things. Pretty on the mark. I figure that, since you didn't even know about this whole demigod thing, you've never met your father?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 04:21:23 PM
Mateline shook her head, curious to see how much information Elisha might have on this new world. “No, my mother raised me and when she passed it was my aunt and uncle. This Hades fellow has never come to see me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 04:25:37 PM
Elisha nodded along. While Hades had been good to her, her own father certainly hadn't. "Zeus, my father, he wasn't around either," she said. "After my mother was killed and I was disowned - that's how I found out about Zeus, you see, my mother told me before she was hung - I prayed to him, begging for him to come and save me. It wasn't until I was next to dead that he did show up, only to tell me he couldn't help me. I don't see him as my father, to be quite honest."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 04:27:39 PM
They really were so alike. She put her hand out on top of Elisha’s. “We don’t need them,” she told her resolutely. “They clearly don’t see us as their children, they don’t deserve our thoughts.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 04:31:58 PM
"I can drink to that," Elisha said, picking up a goblet of wine from the table. It was nice, having a friend for once. She eyed the people around the table. Casiel, Henry, Gio, Mateline, and herself. She was stuck with them. She was going to have to learn to like them, or at the very least, tolerate them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 24, 2018, 04:34:26 PM
Mateline raised her own glass with a small smile. She had to admit, this new life was exciting. And it was getting her out of her otherwise grumpy shell. “Hear hear.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 04:39:43 PM
Casiel actually smiled at that. "That's a lot of mental gymnastics you had to go through, you must be tired," he said teasingly. "Seriously, you had no idea that I have powers, or the consequences of asking. It's not your fault, no more than it is mine for getting hit by that arrow."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 04:41:13 PM
Elisha looked across the table at Henry. He hadn't been awful to her at all, and she had been rude to him. "Hey," she said to him. "I'm sorry if I was sharp earlier."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 04:45:40 PM
"No, I'm tired from teleporting your fat butts twice in one day quite far distances," Gio teased and then went back to eating. He smirked a little, pretty pleased to have gotten a smile out of Casiel. When Elisha sat at the table, he grew quiet though and continued to eat, just looking at his plate before looking around the room, "Do you think we'll stay all in one room or they'll split us up?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 04:47:01 PM
"I don't really care, to be honest," Casiel replied. "I'm exhausted." He could probably lie his head down in the potatoes on his plate and be snoring within minutes.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 04:50:33 PM
"Well, if they put us all together, I can get us out of here," Giovanni said very quietly under his breath to Casiel. He then looked around at all of them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 04:53:43 PM
"You want to escape?" Cas replied in a hushed tone. Truthfully he did too, but he was worried about what that woman would do if she found out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 04:56:35 PM
"You don't? I don't want to do this woman's dirty work for the rest of my life because she poisoned you. She forced us into this and if you had died, she still would have found a way to get us all here," Gio told him. He took a deep breath, "I could try to get us far. Like Siberia, the Far East, the New World."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 24, 2018, 05:04:15 PM
"You could travel that far?" Cas asked incredulously. He then lowered his head and glanced around. "If we're that far away she won't be able to do anything, right? Even if she alerts everyone on the continent about us, it won't matter if we're on another."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 05:15:29 PM
Elisha overheard the conversation between Cas and Gio. As much as she hated Gio, she didn't find the idea of being a slave ideal, and she wanted to get the hell out of Scotland. "What about somewhere that would be too difficult for her to reach us?" Elisha asked. "Somewhere that isn't necessarily tied up with Europe."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 24, 2018, 05:29:25 PM
"I mean...I could absolutely try," Gio told him, looking in his eyes, "I don't know if it would work, but I don't want to live as someone else's slave." he turned and looked at Elisha and shushed her for a moment before glancing around, "Suggestions?" he asked after thinking for a moment.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 24, 2018, 05:31:00 PM
"I've heard of some far off oriental countries," Elisha replied, thinking about some conversations she had overheard when she was still a respected lady. "In the west. Maybe one of those?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 27, 2018, 02:01:21 PM
"Greece first," Cas said. "I still want to learn as much as I can about the gods and who I'm suppose to be. Then... maybe the new world?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 27, 2018, 02:10:43 PM
“You really think she wouldn’t find us?” Mateline asked dryly. “I mean she got us easy enough this time, I bet she has agents all over the globe.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 27, 2018, 02:19:42 PM
"Well I don't know, but I would think that it would be harder for her to get to us in places outside of Europe," Elisha said. She thought about Greece for a moment. She hadn't really considered it before, always seeing herself as a Scot, but she was technically Greek too. Or... was she Olympian? How exactly did that work? "Greece could be interesting though," she said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 27, 2018, 02:21:45 PM
"Unless she also has a teleporter on her side," Henry spoke up, not meaning to be a downer but he couldn't help it.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 27, 2018, 02:32:58 PM
Gio looked at everyone else and he furrowed his eyebrows, "I would at least need to rest tonight so I can regain my strength, otherwise I don't know if we'll make it to Greece or somewhere inbetween or if all of us would make it," He said quietly and then looked up from his empty plate and over at the mess hall, "Do you think I can get more?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 27, 2018, 02:38:30 PM
"Well, whatever we're doing we'd better make a plan quick," Casiel said, still glancing around. So far it seemed like nobody had paid any mind to their conversation. He turned to Gio. "You can have mine. I'm not really hungry."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 27, 2018, 02:41:47 PM
"You guys can sleep on it. We'll make a hard decision in the morning," he told them as he slid Casiel's plate in front of him and started to eat some of it. He then looked at Casiel, "What's wrong?" he asked more quietly, just to Cas.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 27, 2018, 02:50:56 PM
"Nothing," Cas replied. "I've just don't really eat much. Never have," he told him. Of course being so on edge probably didn't help.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 27, 2018, 03:02:56 PM
Giovanni nodded and then continued to eat from Casiel's plate before looking around for someone who could give him an idea of where they would be going to sleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 28, 2018, 03:25:59 PM
"Looking for someone?" Cas asked him. He was trying his best to relax; clearly nobody was paying attention to their little group.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 29, 2018, 12:55:50 PM
"Just trying to get an idea of our surroundings. I'm also pretty tired and wouldn't mind knowing where we're sleeping," he told him. Gio pushed away the rest of Casiel's plate and then looked at the others, "Well?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 29, 2018, 05:04:40 PM
"I suppose we probably have the freedom to wander around?" Cas said. Everyone else seemed to be milling about, coming and going from the mess hall as they pleased, so why couldn't they? "We could explore the place a little?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 30, 2018, 02:49:27 AM
Mateline watched the other people there mildly, trying to take note of how they acted, what they were like. It was essentially enemy territory, however it was a useful place to be. This woman seemed to know quite a bit more than they did. “I think that’s a perfect plan.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 30, 2018, 02:53:26 AM
“Agreed,” Elisha said. “Getting a better idea of these unfamiliar surroundings is wise.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 30, 2018, 07:57:19 AM
Gio nodded, "Alright. Let's go. Cas or Henry, you should lead the way," he suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 30, 2018, 11:29:13 AM
Henry he could understand, what with the future visions and all that, but himself? He didn't feel like he should be leading anything. "Alright..." Casiel said, rising from his seat. There were multiple exits out of the room so he chose one at random, which led to a long narrow hallway. He followed it along, sure the others were coming up behind him, when he reached another room. This one was a large open area, with makeshift weapons lining the walls. "Almost looks like some sort of sparring room," he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 30, 2018, 01:40:26 PM
Mateline stepped in, her interest piqued. "Sparring?" She inspected the walls of weapons, her eyes sparkling. She had some weird feeling of excitement at them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 30, 2018, 01:58:09 PM
Casiel picked up a long sword from off the wall. The edges had been dulled down, making it much more of a club than a blade. "Do any of you know how to fight?" he asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on December 30, 2018, 02:04:11 PM
Henry leaned against the wall, arms folded across his chest. A look of disapproval written all over his face, "No, and I don't intend to learn," he grumbled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 30, 2018, 02:05:21 PM
Her eyes flicked to Elisha. "Not me," she said as she stepped closer to the weaponry and touched a bow reverently.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 30, 2018, 02:10:49 PM
"Me neither, obviously," Casiel said. He felt so awkward carrying a weapon. It just didn't feel right. "But maybe we should learn?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 30, 2018, 02:18:09 PM
Mateline picked up the bow. "Who would teach us though?" she asked, casting a glance around the room.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 30, 2018, 04:20:41 PM
“I know how to use a knife,” Elisha said, eyeing Mateline curiously, wondering what the look at been about.. “And I’m not horrid with a sword either, but it all comes down to whether or not it’s the right size and weight for the person wielding it.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 01:49:11 AM
He “I can use a bow, knife, sword, mace,” Giovanni hold them as he took a second long sword off the wall and with ease thrust it forward and then swung it to either side. He raised an eyebrow. “I mean, I was training to be a knight after all, battle is a lot of our lives,” he told the group. He then turned the sword as if to sheath it and micmiced the movement before putting it back on the wall, “I don’t know how good of a teacher I would be though”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 06:30:31 AM
"And I'd probably be a terrible student," Casiel replied, still lazily swinging the sword around. "But I've a feeling that we should learn to defend ourselves, at least a little."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 07:39:15 AM
"I mean, you could just...practice against me," Gio suggested, bringing his sword back up and tapping it against Casiel's, "Let's test your steel." He took 10 steps back and then nodded for Casiel, "Come on."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 09:51:46 AM
"You want me to...?" Suddenly the sword in his hand felt a whole lot heavier; he was probably about to get his ass kicked. "Okay, all right, I'll try my best." With that he lunged, taking a swing at Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 09:57:35 AM
Gio easily caught Cas' sword with his, the metallic clash sounding through the room before Gio brought this sword around, meeting Casiel's again before smacking his thigh with the dull side of it, a small smile on his face. It wasn't really fair after all, he had tons of training and it looked like Casiel could drop his sword at any moment.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 10:23:57 AM
Casiel stumbled as Gio hit him. It didn't really hurt, more of the surprise that caught him. He recentered his footing and attacked again, but Gio once again blocked him easily. "I... I really don't think I'm cut out for combat," he huffed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 10:29:50 AM
Gio chuckled and dropped his sword a bit, "You might just need a little more strength to wield a sword like that," Giovanni told him and looked around at the other weapons, "But you should know how to defend yourself. I imagine we've entered some very dangerous business"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 11:47:51 AM
Elisha watched as the two sparred. She leaned over to Mateline. "Is it just me or do you think that they're awfully familiar with one another in their body language and speech?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Mateline held the bow close to her chest awkwardly. “What do you mean by that?” It was true, they were quite similar. But what could Elisha be getting at?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 12:28:08 PM
"I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps they knew one another at some point in their lives," Elisha mused. "Or, if they're just naturally similar like that. What do you think?"

“Cas said he doesn’t remember anything. Maybe he was a soldier once too,” she said carefully. “Though he doesn’t really strike me as strong enough for that.”

"He does seem kind of... impuissant doesn't he?" Elisha asked. It wasn't even so much the physical, it was more about how cagey he was and how nervous he seemed. She supposed it was from the lack of memories, but still. In her strategic line of thinking, he was going to be their weak spot, unless he could prove her wrong.

Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 12:50:48 PM
She shifted uncomfortably, not wanting the boys to overhear. “We need to make ourselves useful then,” she said. “If we’re going to be some kind of team, we should be as strong as possible. You said you know how to fight?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 12:56:15 PM
"I do," Elisha said. She grabbed a stick off the floor and handed it to Mateline. "Pretend this is a knife, and come at me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 12:58:44 PM
She took the stick from Elisha and looked from the stick to Elisha. She lunged suddenly, aiming for Elisha’s stomach.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 01:00:52 PM
Elisha saw the lunge and noticed that it was too sudden, so she grabbed Mateline's wrist and tugged hard, effectively throwing Mateline off balance. "You were too hasty that time. Try again."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 01:15:54 PM
Mateline stumbles a little and rolled her shoulders a bit, preparing herself. “I’m a seamstress, not a fighter,” she defended as she tried attacking a little more slow and careful.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 01:33:19 PM
This time was too slow. Elisha dodged and stuck her foot out to trip Mateline. "I've never taught anyone before so maybe I'm just a bad teacher, but that was too slow."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 01:39:16 PM
"A smaller weapon, then?" Casiel asked. "Something quicker?" He picked up a dagger from the wall, juggling it back and forth, the speed of his inhuman reflexes making the small blade a blur. "If I could learn to use this ability when fighting I'd be set," he sighed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 02:03:41 PM
"That might be perfect for you," Giovanni told him and nodded, "Though you'd hardly catch me with that. I'd certainly just wisp myself away before your blade touched me," he teased.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 02:05:47 PM
Mateline stood, rubbing her hip and glowering a little. “Well what do you want then? What’s the right speed?” She held out the stick. “Show me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 02:08:12 PM
Casiel rolled his eyes. "Maybe I should learn how to throw it then?" It might work, considering his reflexes. "See if you could blink away from that."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 02:10:45 PM
Elisha took the stick from Mateline. She stood a bit away, watching Mateline carefully, waiting. Finally, she made her move aiming not for Mateline's core as one would expect, but rather, her leg. The stick poked Mateline's leg slightly. "If this was a knife, you'd fall," Elisha said. "Then, when you're on your knees, I could get you through the back of your neck."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 02:30:16 PM
"Give it shot, but don't aim for anything important please," Giovanni told him and took more steps back, trying to make it more difficult
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 02:32:25 PM
Mateline watched Elisha's every move carefully, nodding at her in understanding and holding out her hand for the stick back. "So I do that and I win?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 02:35:18 PM
Cas nodded and took a step back as well. He lined up his throw, made a few practice throws, then flung the blade at Giovanni, his arm a blur.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 02:38:46 PM
Giovanni barely saw the knife coming but disappeared just a moment before the knife hit him, it clattered to the ground though. Gio appeared right beside Casiel and then looked at him while clutching his side. He pulled his hand away and showed where the knife had grazed him, "I think you might have something there." He wiped his hand on his tunic, not in a lot of pain.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 02:41:01 PM
"Not necessarily," Elisha said, handing the stick back. "But you're more likely to. You have to strike when they're not expecting, where they're not expecting. Surprise is your biggest ally, or so I choose to believe."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 02:53:56 PM
Casiel's eyes lit up. "I actually hit you?" And on his first try? Okay, so he just grazed him, but it still counted. But then he frowned. "Are you okay? It doesn't hurt, does it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 02:55:27 PM
Mateline huffed a little. "Surprise." Her eyes darkened a little and she darted forward, striking at Elisha's ankle.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 03:06:16 PM
Elisha jumped a bit. She wasn't used to getting tripped up by someone. She smiled at Mateline. "Well done," she commended.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 03:14:53 PM
“No. No. It’s fine. Don’t...don’t worry,” he said and held up his hand, “It’s nothing to be too concerned about. It’ll wash off when I bathe,” Gio told him. He then breathed in deep, “Keep practicing. I’m tired. I was to find where we’re resting”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 03:21:43 PM
Mateline smiled proudly. "Okay, what about protecting myself?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 03:24:50 PM
"I'd suggest not engaging, if you can avoid it. Hide, don't try to fight. But if you have to, then you stick with defensive until you see an opening where you can do a sneak strike. That's how I've done it, at least, and it's worked fairly well. There was one time where the man I was - " Elisha cut off, knowing that Mateline may not be keen on the gory details. "He had company over. Brutish friend, really, and not very fun to deal with. I just kept defending until he got so used to it that I guess he never thought I'd attack."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 03:46:38 PM
Casiel was also exhausted, but he wanted to practice- this was the first time since washing up on that beach that he felt like he could do something useful. "Be careful, okay?" he told Giovanni. "I don't trust the people here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 04:05:46 PM
Gio nodded, “If things go wrong, I’ll just think of you and I’ll be right back here,” He told him and then casually hit his chest with his fist, a salutation for knights and squires and then headed into the Hall after easily replacing the sword. He went in search of someone with answers or for the rooms themselves.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 04:30:24 PM
"So formal," Casiel muttered, going back to tossing knives at one of the makeshift targets. Slowly, it became more and more effortless and even, strangely, familiar. Had he done this before? It would make sense, considering how natural the movements felt, as if his body were already used to them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 04:44:15 PM
Wandering around the hallways more, Giovanni searched for answers and eventually found his way to a large room with palettes of hay for mattresses laid strewn throughout the floor, but he received several giggles as he slowly realized that everyone in the room was a girl. He suddenly bowed and started to back away, "Sorry ladies, could I be directed to where the men stay?" One of the girls hurried over to him and gently held his arm as she showed him the way to the opposite end of the hall which led to a similar room. She then led him go with a wink and he rolled his eyes slightly. It wasn't too hard to find, so he was sure the others would find it later when they were tired. In the mean time, Gio slipped his tunic off, tossing it on a nearby palette to claim it, and wanting to clean his wound from Cas' knife, he found a pitcher and bowl with a rag on a nearby chest of drawers.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 05:06:13 PM
Mateline stared at her with her eyebrows raised. “I see.” The story had been enlightening on the kind of life Elisha had been leading. “Ok, can I just practice a few more times on you?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 05:11:24 PM
After a while he had grown far too tired to continue. It was then that he realized he hadn't slept in over a day, and with that realization he decided sleep was needed. "I'm going to bed," he announced to the others, not stopping to check whether or not they heard him. He wandered for a bit before finding what could only be the sleeping quarters, and a shirtless Giovanni. "Oh, sorry..." he began, though he wasn't entirely sure of what he was apologizing for.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 05:16:15 PM
“Sure,” Elisha said. “But I’m going to be in attack mode too, so it’ll be proper sparring.” She readied herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 05:19:23 PM
Mateline prepped herself, determined not to look intimidated, even though she knew she was no real match for Elisha. Before she lunged, she cocked her head to the side. “If we’re sparring, are we including hand to hand?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 05:20:10 PM
Gio turned to Casiel when he walked in as he pressed the damp cloth to his small wound and raised an eyebrow, "I told you already that it didn't hurt too badly," he said, not sure why he apologized. He pulled the rag away and smirked, "See, absolutely nothing to worry about. Just a cut. Not a gash or anything." Gio splashed his face with some water and then dried it with the clean towel before sitting on the straw, "So....this isn't exactly luxurious."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 05:23:27 PM
"Didn't really expect much, to be honest," Casiel grumbled, claiming his own pile of straw. "Better than sleeping on the streets, I suppose."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 05:28:38 PM
"I hear that," Giovanni told him and took a deep breath, "I've spent plenty of nights in the dirt and on cobblestone." He laid back on the straw and looked up at the ceiling, "I don't want to do this woman's dirty work and I certainly don't want to kill anyone."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 05:45:51 PM
"You still planning on busting us out of here, then?" Casiel asked. He, too, lied down, propping himself up with his elbow.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on December 31, 2018, 05:49:27 PM
"If I can get Henry and the girls to go along with it....and if I can manage to get us out. I have a feeling they know what I can do...and they aren't going to just let me teleport us out," Gio told him, voice quieter now. He turned his head and looked at Casiel, "You really don't remember anything?""
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on December 31, 2018, 05:55:17 PM
"She definitely knows what we can do," Casiel replied softly. Then he sat up. "Yeah, I don't remember anything. Other than my name and a deep, burning hatred for someone," he growled. "I don't know who it is, but they have something to do with my amnesia."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:03:04 PM
Mateline prepped herself, determined not to look intimidated, even though she knew she was no real match for Elisha. Before she lunged, she cocked her head to the side. “If we’re sparring, are we including hand to hand?”

“Hand to hand works too,” Elisha said. She lunged at Mateline but changed directions at the last second to throw her off.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 06:06:56 PM
Mateline helped a little and tried to dodge the attack, not having anticipated just how not easy Elisha would go on her. She might have gotten herself in a little over her head.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:08:29 PM
“What about your powers?” Elisha asked. “Is there anything you can use those for in combat?” She threw the stick she was holding at Mateline’s ankle before swiftly picking it up again when it ricochet a bit.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 06:12:01 PM
Mateline flinched and summoned her emotional side as best she could, her hands bursting into blue flames. “When in doubt, burn a person to bits?” She suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:14:58 PM
Elisha stepped back, giving Mateline a once over. “I’m impressed,” she said. “That could certainly be useful.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 06:16:50 PM
She let the flames die and shrugged as if it were no big deal. “I mean they kinda depend on close combat, but I’m hoping to learn to control them better, maybe conjure flames not physically on me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:19:44 PM
“I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to,” Elisha said. “The first time I used my electricity, it came down from the sky. But then since then, it’s been on my body to protect me, like earlier with Giovanni. You should be able to do the same, I would think.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 06:22:32 PM
She grabbed the stick and twirled it experimentally. “I just don’t know how to harness it. It hasn’t exactly been useful in everyday life so I never really use it. My other powers just...come naturally.” Mateline realized she had slipped up and she clenched her teeth, hoping Elisha didn’t wonder about any other powers. As far as she was concerned, she only had two.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:26:25 PM
Elisha noticed. She raised an eyebrow. “Other powers? As in, plural?” She asked, forcing her voice to sound casual. She supposed Mateline was doing the same thing as she was, omitting details out of a lack of knowledge about the other person, but it had caught her off guard. Elisha was used to manipulating people. She wasn’t used to being manipulated. Plus, she had thought Mateline was the type to just tell everything from the get go.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on December 31, 2018, 06:29:09 PM
Mateline waved her arm, trying to dismiss it. “Sorry, misspoke. Just singular. Yknow, the ghost thing. That’s it. Only other power to speak of.” Oh god, she was rambling. Suddenly, Mateline wished she had gotten better at speaking to people because this was clearly the worlds worst kept lie.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on December 31, 2018, 06:32:16 PM
“You can tell me, you know,” Elisha said. “I know you’re lying.” She began circling Mateline. She didn’t like this deceit, but she also didn’t want to alienate her new ally. Even so, this was making an anger awaken in her. “Or, I could always choke it out of you.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 12:59:04 AM
"She definitely knows what we can do," Casiel replied softly. Then he sat up. "Yeah, I don't remember anything. Other than my name and a deep, burning hatred for someone," he growled. "I don't know who it is, but they have something to do with my amnesia."

Gio looked at him, sitting up just a bit, and shook his head, “I know that burning hatred, but...I couldn’t imagine the pain of not knowing who I was. I’m very sorry Casiel. I hope...I hope we can make that right. And at least if you never know who you were, you can discovered who you are. Cause you’re certainly more than a fisherman,” he told him and chuckled lightly, looking down and playing with a piece of straw from the bed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 02:37:42 AM
Mateline watched her circle, trying not to show just how intimidated she was by the woman. “There’s really no need for that,” she ground out through clenched teeth. “I’ll tell you but you can’t tell the others, okay? They already know too much.”

Elisha stopped, scare tactic goal achieved. She smiled a little, back to being friendly. “That’s fair. I won’t tell them.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 03:02:45 AM
She sighed a little and reached out, grabbing Elisha by the arm and closing her eyes to concentrate better. As soon as she pinpointed it, she felt terrible to use it, but Elisha had wanted to know. So she pushed on, making Elisha believe she were her young self again, standing there helpless at her mothers execution. Reliving such a thing seemed to be her greatest fear, which was unusual for a person.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 03:16:55 AM
Elisha’s eyes glazed over.

It was dusk, and people were standing around with torches to light the way once the sun was completely down. There was a podium in front of the castle, where a large man with a mask stood, wielding an ax. Cheering began as a woman was lead onto the stage, a burlap sack over her head. The masked man tore it off, and there stood Lady Moray, Elisha’s mother, in nothing more than rags. Lord Moray stepped up next, giving a speech about Lady Moray’s infedelity and how it made her a sinner who deserved to die. Elisha watched as Lady Moray’s eyes flicked to her, standing helplessly in the crowd. She wanted to do something, anything. Her mother was a good person! She didn’t deserve this. But what could she do? Daughter of a God who didn’t want her?

Lady Moray was brought to the block and was given a chance to say a prayer. Elisha could see her muttering, and in attempting to read her mother’s lips, she made out the words “Please take care of her.” In her moment of death, she was praying to the man who had essentially brought this fate upon her, asking him to care for their daughter.

The executioner in the mask swung the blade up and brought it down on Lady Moray’s neck. Elisha couldn’t clearly see, but Lord Moray’s face was clearly one of surprise. The executioner tried a few more times, but Lady Moray’s head would not come off. The crowd started to scream for witchcraft. The executioner hauled Lady Moray to her feet and brought her to the other side of the podium, where there was the other execution device: a rope.

Lord Moray helped the executioner as Lady Moray thrashed, placing the noose around her neck. Elisha just stood there frozen. Had her father tried to save her mother, or was the executioner just a lousy aim? But then, it happened. The box was knocked out from under Lady Moray and she dangled there, thrashing about, trying to get down.

There were cheers in the audience, clapping too. Lord Moray caught Elisha’s eye then, and she could see the contempt in them. She backed away slowly, eyes back on her mother, who was slowly slipping away. She couldn’t watch anymore. She ran. Ran away from the crowd, from the man she had thought to be her father. Ran into darkness.


She was back in the room, Mateline holding her arm. She pulled back suddenly and then gripped Mateline’s neck hard. “What did you do to me?” She snarled.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 04:11:47 AM
Casiel gave him a small smile. "Thank you," he said softly. It was nice to know someone thought highly of him. "You also have a hatred for someone? Care to tell?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 04:15:38 AM
Mateline gasped, trying to rip Elisha’s hand off her neck. The curse that came with her power was that she witnessed the fears as well, and she had not been prepared for watching that scene unfold. “You wanted...to know...my power...” she gasped out, eyes wide.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 04:19:54 AM
Elisha's face twitched and her hands were shaking, but she released Mateline, pushing her away. "How much did you see?" she growled, trying to return to a calm demeanour.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 04:32:35 AM
Mateline held out her hands placatingly, eyes still wide with shock. “Nothing,” she lied, trying to calm Elisha. “I’m sorry, I didn’t realize.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 04:34:43 AM
"Stop lying," Elisha warned. She was standing stock still now, desperately trying to get back to her normal. She could feel it coming on, the electricity. She was trying to force it away. This wasn't Mateline's fault.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 04:54:08 AM
“Okay, okay, I saw it all,” she said hastily, concerned by the erratic behaviour of her confidante. “I can’t control that, I have to see it. It was supposed to just be a fear, that’s all I’ve ever shown people. Like getting eaten by spiders and stuff. I didn’t expect yours.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 04:58:06 AM
The electricity died out and Elisha slumped back against the wall, worn out. "My fear is being helpless to save someone I love. Right now, I've got nobody, so it only makes sense that your power traced back to the last instance where that fear could become a reality." A residual spark shot from her fingertip and hit the ground, bouncing around for a moment before disappearing. "So, now you know what made me this way. What are you going to do with it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 05:01:57 AM
Mateline felt a deep connection with Elisha, they really weren’t that different after all. Only their reactions were really. “I won’t tell anybody,” she told her sincerely. “I lost my mother as well, I would never fault you for any of that. I’ll keep quiet about you if you don’t tell anyone about me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 05:11:09 AM
"Why keep it hidden?" Elisha asked. "That sort of power can be crippling, it would make opponents, well, fear you. You could break anyone you wanted to with that. I won't tell, but you should consider it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 05:27:57 AM
“That’s exactly what I’m afraid of,” she told her. “If Casiel is some sort of half brother to me, the last thing I want to do is scare him off. The others seem so peaceful. Nobody else would understand but you.” She fiddled with the sleeve of her dress nervously. She felt uncomfortably vulnerable.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 05:42:27 AM
"Because I'm scary?" Elisha asked. "I'm not going to disagree, but that seems like a pretty strange reason to trust me, don't you think?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 05:43:37 AM
"You think it's a good thing," she tried to explain. "The others won't. You've seen how they are, especially that Gio fellow."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 05:55:43 AM
“He irritates me,” Elisha said, thinking about Gio. “It’s all about the rules. Need to live within the lines, as if everything were black and white. Never mind that life - especially our lives - are a mass grey area.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 06:38:34 AM
Mateline nodded in agreement. "He worries me," she admitted. "I feel like he would turn on us in an instant if he thought we were too dangerous."

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 06:57:32 AM
Ughhhh I missed so much. )

(I can make up a character that's from the Crime Ring to talk with yours.)

Casiel gave him a small smile. "Thank you," he said softly. It was nice to know someone thought highly of him. "You also have a hatred for someone? Care to tell?"

"I was 10...My mom and I were alone, obviously, and she just got...sick. I still have no idea how or why, she just couldn't get out of bed, she had insane fevers. So she couldn't work anymore. She worked at this winepress, stomping grapes. I tried to go in her place, but I was too weak. Three moons passed and we didn't have the money to pay to the serf who owned our home. So he...." Giovanni grit his teeth and dug his nails into the palm as his hand, looking down, "He drug my mom into the center of town, wanting to make an example of her. She was still so sick and weak....and he just...beat her and kicked her and it was just one kick too hard to her neck..." He winced and closed his eyes, "We could all hear the snap..." he said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 07:34:35 AM
Yes!)

Henry had no desire of playing around with weapons so he had ducked out of the room, choosing to explore a bit. A strong desire to be back home was overwhelming him; if only he'd stayed home that day rather than venturing into the village. To add to his immense homesickness, Henry was experiencing unsettling glimpses of the future; surely what he was seeing could not actually happen.

Around a corner, a young woman stepped out of the shadows, eyeing Henry over and looking around casually, "You just came in with that new group," she said quietly in a thick cockney accent, stepping closer to his. She had raven hair that flowed down her back and piercing pale blue eyes. She was just a bit shorter than Henry. "And what does Miss Natalyia want with the lot of you?"

Mateline nodded in agreement. "He worries me," she admitted. "I feel like he would turn on us in an instant if he thought we were too dangerous."

“Yes, that’s what I was thinking too. And him being so casual with Casiel makes me think he’d try to turn Cas too. Henry I still couldn’t tell you... I can’t decide if he just doesn’t want to be involved in all of this or if he’s examining us to learn our weaknesses,” Elisha said. She pushed her hair back with her hands, standing up straight and pushing off the wall. “And then there’s Nataliya to think about, her orders. I want to know more about why she’s collecting us.”

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 08:15:40 AM
"I'm sorry," Casiel said softly. Watching someone, especially your mother, die so horribly... He couldn't imagine it. "And the man who did it? What became of him?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 08:24:33 AM
"I don't know. He ran me out of town. Told me if he ever saw me again, I was next," Gio told him and looked over, "But really...if I ever get my hands on that man....he will be the one in pain."

"I don't trust her either," Mateline remarked. "I hate being indebted to someone, and I've never killed before. Do you think she knows the things I can do?" The idea of using people's fears to destroy them both scared and excited her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 08:37:02 AM
“It seemed like she did,” Elisha mused. “She seemed to know all of our strengths and weaknesses and backstories even. I reckon she’s been eyeing us for a while.” The prospect made her uncomfortable, but also impressed that this woman had been able to round them up and get them here without any of them picking up on it. “I don’t like being indebtedded either, however I am curious who exactly she wants us to take care of and why. She was very vague.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 09:04:36 AM
"I could help you with that," Casiel told him. "A person like that, who preys on the innocent and the weak... I've no problem ending them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 01, 2019, 09:06:28 AM
“I can only assume it would be dangerous. Otherwise she’d just do it herself instead of collecting us.” She didn’t like that term, it was like they were helpless figures in Nataliya’s game.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 09:22:24 AM
Gio looked over at Casiel and raise an eyebrow. It was almost dark of him to say something like that, but...he had the same feelings. "One day I will return home. To Italy, but first Greece." he said and raised his eyebrows a bit excited. He laid back again on the bed but turned his head to look over at Casiel. He took a moment to study his face, smiling to himself softly without really knowing.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 01, 2019, 09:28:13 AM
"It's either dangerous, or someone very high profile that she wants us to get rid of, which would be difficult. Public instances would draw attention to the attacker, in this case us, and would be tough to get out of," Elisha said, thinking out loud. "Either way, I still would like to know exactly what I was signing onto. I know Gio wasn't impressed with my hesitation, but can you really blame me? I haven't known you all longer than a day, and yet I'm expected to sign my soul over to an equally strange woman?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 09:38:21 AM
"Greece," Casiel agreed, lying back down again. "We'd better learn something there or I... I really don't know what I'll do." He looked over at Gio, smirking a bit. "You good?"

"What I want is of no concern to anyone but me," Nataliya spoke up, approaching the two. "Mister Henry, was it? I do hope you're finding my company welcoming."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 09:45:14 AM
Gio furrowed his brow when he got caught and turned his face, "Oh yes...I'm fine. Just uh...." he rolled his eyes to himself, "Just a...notion I get. Not really an ability, just some kind of revelation my mind gets. I tend to notice how...attractive people are," Gio said, voice getting quieter as the sentence started to end.

The girl, called Faline, took a step back as Nataliya approached them and looked away, "Miss Nataliya. I thought you had gone to rest. I'm sorry."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 09:47:00 AM
Around a corner, a young woman stepped out of the shadows, eyeing Henry over and looking around casually, "You just came in with that new group," she said quietly in a thick cockney accent, stepping closer to his. She had raven hair that flowed down her back and piercing pale blue eyes. She was just a bit shorter than Henry. "And what does Miss Natalyia want with the lot of you?"

Henry jumped, startled by the woman's sudden appearance. He was in his own little world, really not paying attention to his surroundings. He eyed the woman wearily, "I imagine she wants the benefit of our...abilities," he said vaguely, unsure how much this woman knew about the gods. He grew quiet as Nataliya approached them, a scowl quickly forming, "I wouldn't go that far," he grumbled boldly.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 09:52:46 AM
"You think I'm attractive?" Casiel asked, a little surprised. Truthfully he could say the same about Giovanni himself, but had tried not to dwell on it. But there was nothing wrong with thinking it, right? "Thank you, I guess?" he added with an awkward laugh.

"Oh, so fiery," Nataliya smirked. "It's not me you should be worried about- it's those friends of yours. They think you're a dead wait," she told him, turning to Faline. "It's quite all right, dear," she said with a cold smile.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 10:05:53 AM
"The notion I get isn't really my own opinion, more of a...mental note my brain makes. Just...if a person is attractive or not," Gio said, trying to save face, but then he realize that...it would probably just be best to be honest, "But...I also do find you....attractive," he said and then took a deep breath, "No matter how odd that makes me."

Faline rolled her eyes and stood beside them, holding her arms around herself, but watching Henry carefully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 10:07:23 AM
Henry was taken aback by her revelation, “you’re lying,” he said, though sounding uncertain. The visions he had been having had already planted seeds of doubt in his mind.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 10:12:32 AM
"Why would I lie?" Nataliya asked him. "You're clearly doubting your place in that little group either way."

"You enjoy the company of men, then?" Casiel asked him. It was a little odd, he had to admit that. Not to mention heavily frowned upon. "I really don't care, either way," he added quickly, not wanting to offend Giovanni and losing him as an ally.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 10:24:08 AM
Henry was  quiet a moment, trying to keep a straight face "How would you even know?" Henry questioned
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 10:27:32 AM
Giovanni felt a heavy weight on his chest, “I guess you could phrase it that way. I mean, I have enjoyed other men’s company. But it’s not like I haven’t considered some women, if...if I found the right woman, perhaps, but” he stopped speaking and swallowed, “I used my ability a few times when I got in trouble. Had to tell  people who found out not to say anything. I almost lost my place in my barracks because of it.”
 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 10:34:18 AM
"My ability, remember?" She told him. "It's called scrying. I can see things as they're happening. It's not as useful as seeing into the future, but it certainly helps in some regards."

"So you've not only had to hide your abilities, but that as well," Casiel said quietly. "I'm sorry."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 10:47:35 AM
Henry was not a fool; he knew she was probably bending the truth to an extent but there was a part of him that believed her. "I've been having strange visions about them all," he admitted, not sure what was possessing him to share such a thing
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 10:49:47 AM
Faline smirked, “Seeing the future. Is that what he does?” She asked and looked Henry over, “That’s pretty amazing. Can’t you see your place with us sweetheart?”

Giovanni looked over at him and shook his head, “it doesn’t matter now. I don’t have to hide who I am with my powers here. Not with you guys. Not with you.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

"And I suppose you owe me transparency with your abilities, seeing as you did make me reveal myself," Cas teased him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 10:59:31 AM
"I can see possible futures," Henry clarified, "it's often not set in stone and I hardly ever see the whole picture," he added. Henry looked between Nataliya and the woman, "It's all in pieces; I think...they turn on me," he said, "but I don't know why." Henry revealed
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 11:08:30 AM
“I suppose so. You know everything now though. The teleporting, the voice and being able to understand people’s languages and speak them apparently? I didn’t know English until someone started speaking it to me. Then I just started speaking it back to them,” he told him 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 11:15:25 AM
"Why would you think they would?" Nataliya asked him. "Yes, Faline, wouldn't it be such a useful ability? Think of all the ways he could help our cause."

Cas looked at him with surprise. "That's a new one," he said. "You can understand any language? Just from hearing it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 11:43:58 AM
Gio nodded, “My native tongue is actually a more of a small oceanic village language from where I grew up in Italy and then I discovered Italian when I moved inland.” He told him.

Faline nodded and slowly came close to Henry, gently running her arms over his shoulders, “You could stay with us. Don’t worry Henry, we will take good care of you.” She ran her fingers down his face but then pulled away and leaned against the wall, watching him carefully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 12:01:01 PM
Henry's body quivered at the woman's touch; she certainly was convincing.
"I...I don't know," Henry finally replied, "Surely not just because they think I'm dead weight," he said. Why would they end up fighting against each other? Maybe he would be better off with Nataliya...

Suddenly Henry's eyes turned completely white and he sank to his knees before the two women; what he saw in his vision was more of the same, but with a new horrible twist. Cas, Gio, Mateline, Elisha were all fighting against him and who he assumed were Nataliya's people; Henry saw himself fighting back with a strange invisible force that almost seemed to come from his own hands. The vision ended with Henry being struck by someone's sword; he saw himself fall to his knees, blood gushing from his mouth, a look of betrayal and hatred on his face. He watched himself fall forward, dead before his body it the ground.

Henry's eyes returned to their normal colour and he gasped in shock and horror, "they...they will kill me" he exclaimed
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 12:02:34 PM
"That's fascinating," Casiel said. "So you can speak any language, and you can influence people just by speaking to them. Seems like your mouth is pretty talented," he said before realizing the implications of his words. He turned bright red. "I, no, that's not what..." he stammered. "Sorry, I'm really tired. Clearly."

Nataliya nodded solemnly. "Even I don't trust them. But it's better for monsters to be your allies than your enemies. For now."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 12:13:37 PM
Henry stayed on the ground at the women's feet, too stunned to move; surely there was something more to his vision. However, what did he really know about the demi-gods he'd joined up with? He really did not know what they were capable of. Henry looked up at Nataliya, confused and hurt, "What...do you need me for?" he finally said. Maybe there was a possible future where he survived; maybe if he joined Nataliya.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 12:25:22 PM
Faline scratched her back against the wall and she smirked as he started to change his mind. She nodded in agreement with Natayila, “They’re more trouble than what they’re worth. The rest of us have done dangerous things but only to further what we believe in. Your...friends...they’re acting on instinct. What do you think they’re going to do?”

Giovanni looked at him and at first he just stared, a little confused before he started to laugh, “ I um...suppose it is. In quite a few ways,” he raised his eyebrows as he looked down and then put his arms behind his eyes, “I know what you meant. Don’t worry yourself.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 12:43:07 PM
"I need you to predict the moves of my enemies, of our enemies, before they can strike," Nataliya told him.

Casiel sighed heavily. He was such a moron. Good thing Gio had a sense of humour. "I should probably sleep, but I doubt I'll be able to relax in this place."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 12:48:37 PM
Henry felt foolish for entertaining such thoughts but how could he argue with a future he'd seen for himself? "They aren't my friends," he replied. Slowly he got back to his feet, eyeing the women with uncertainly; it did not seem like such a bad thing, "Well...I guess that I can do," Henry said. He frowned a bit, trying to decide if he should betray his 'friends' plans of escape. Maybe it would be better for him to be on Nataliya's good side, "They are going to escape once Gio's strength returns," Henry blurted out, "Probably to Greece"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 01:05:22 PM
“Think on the sea. Close your eyes, imagine the waves moving in and out, listen to the water reaching for the shore,” Giovanni suggested as he closed his eyes as well, “That’s what I do in the barracks”

Faline got big eyes and then looked at Nataylia, “I told you they weren’t going to work with us. What do you want to do with the teleporter? Do I kill him? We should kill him,” she said with a bloodlust in her eyes.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 01:11:24 PM
Nataliya's eyes lit up. "Oh, I knew you'd be useful!" She beamed, turning to Faline. "Yes, I believe we should take care of him. The others will have nowhere to run without his abilities."

Casiel frowned, opening his eyes, staring at the ceiling. "The sea doesn't exactly hold pleasant memories for me," he told him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 01:17:01 PM
Henry frowned, "wait!" he exclaimed, regretting his decision immediately, "You don't have to kill him!" Henry said, but then thought more about it. He had not seen who struck him with the sword in his vision; if it had been Gio, maybe this was a way to avoid that fate.

Faline pulled a long knife from her boot and then looked at Henry, “Listen.  I’m going to kill him but the other three....they’ll take it as a lesson, right?” She then started down the hall towards the living quarters.

Gio frowned slightly and bit his lip, “I’m...sorry.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 01:44:20 PM
Casiel shrugged. "Don't be," he said. "It's depressing, but it's the reality I'm living with."

"Please don't make a mess, Faline," Nat called after her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 01:51:29 PM
Faline crept into the hall and then into the men’s chambers. She came into the doorway and saw the two new men in beds side by side. She held the knife in the sleeve of her left arm while she came over to Giovanni and draped herself over him, fingers running over his chest, “Are you the teleporter I’ve heard so much about?” She whispered.
Gio looked at her, wrinkling his nose and sitting up slowly, “Uh..yes,” he said and looked at her more carefully. Something was off. Why was she o friendly?

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 02:06:09 PM
Casiel had to laugh when the strange girl started crawling all over Giovanni, mostly due to the sheer absurdity of it all. "Ah, is there something you need?" he asked her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 02:15:16 PM
Faline shot a glare at Casiel, nervous that he would stop her from what she needed to do to get Nat’s approval. She stood up and felt Gio’s bare chest before taking his hand, “You should come with me. I’m Natayila’s right hand. If you want to be on her good side, I can certainly get you there,” she told him. Gio just chuckled at her and pulled his hand away, “I’m sorry, I’m very tired. I’m sure you could show me another time”.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 02:32:59 PM
"Oddly pushy, aren't ye?" Casiel grumbled. "Look, no offense, but we're tired. It's been a long day. Whatever this is can wait until morning."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 02:49:03 PM
“Nat said not to make a mess, but you’re wasting my time,” Faline told him and then drew her knife and put it to His throat. Gio’s eyes grew wide and the suddenly threw her off of him and against the wall, but she just caught her feet on the wall and flipped back onto the floor, standing up right and standing to fight him. “You’re Dead teleporter!” And then jumped towards him, holding tightly to his arm as she slashed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 03:07:36 PM
Casiel scrambled to his feet, barely moving out of the way of the girl's assault. "Are you mad?!" he exclaimed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 03:28:07 PM
Faline put a deep gash into Gio’s chest before he threw her off again and then stood up. He looked at Casiel, “Go, find the girls. You could be in danger too.” Faline prepared to pounce again but Gio stood strong and then put a hand up, catching her by the shoulder, “Enough. Stop and stand still he told her and she suddenly looked at him with big eyes and stopped thrashing, standing still, breathing heavily. He gasped air as the gash on his chest bled out more.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 03:47:20 PM
"I'm not about to leave you," Cas retorted, pressing his hand to Gio's chest in an attempt to quell the bleeding. "Which of the others were healers?" he asked quickly. "Henry?"

Giovanni briefly put his hand over Casiel’s looking at him before nodding, “Henry healed you.” He sighed out and then looked at Faline, “Tell me why you attacked me.” Faline looked like she was struggling for a moment and then she burst out, “You were going to take the others to Greece. We can’t allow that,” she said through gritted teeth.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 04:10:32 PM
Casiel paled. "How did you know about that?" Had they been overheard? He quickly tore the sleeve of his tunic off, trying his best to wrap it around Gio's chest. "Come on, we need to find Henry."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

"Better hope she succeeds, then," Nataliya replied with a wry smile. "But worry not. You're under my protection."

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 04:53:53 PM
Gio was losing more blood and was too distracted to use the voice again. Faline didn't answer Casiel and smiled, "You can't do what he does. Mmm, but I'd love for him to tell me what else to do." Gio spat in front of her and growled, holding the makeshift bandage tighter to his chest. "Stay. Here." he told Faline and then nodded for Cas to come with him as he stumbled into the hall and called out, "Henry!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 05:03:35 PM
Henry heard them calling his name and he looked at Nat with wide eyes, “she failed” he whispered, not bothering to answer their call.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 01, 2019, 05:09:04 PM
Casiel quickly came up beside Gio, putting his arm around him, holding him up. "Henry!" He called as they rounded the corner, finding him and Nataliya. "He needs help! Please!"

"Oooh," Nataliya hissed. "Quite a problem you're in, now is it?" Cas wasn't sure who she was talking about, or why Henry would be in some sort of trouble. Then it hit him: "Henry you... you told them..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 05:13:28 PM

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 01, 2019, 05:14:19 PM
Gio held onto Casiel and as they found Nataliya and Henry, he mumbled a curse under his breath. He looked behind them, not sure how long his hold on Faline to stay would work. He looked back at Nat and seethed, "She's cute...your little...minion," he breathed and coughed a bit. He looked down and noticed the blood was soaking through the bandage.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 01, 2019, 06:15:32 PM
Henry stared at Gio and all the blood; he wanted to help but then he remembered his vision. They were going to kill him one day; why should he help? He looked away, stepping away from them and closer to Nat.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

“Henry. Please. Help me,” Gio asked and held a little tighter to Casiel.

“I’m sorry but I won’t,” Henry replied, avoiding his eyes. “it’s better this way,” he whispered, struggling with the words. What was he doing?  What was he becoming? Was his own life really that much more important to him? He closed his eyes, trying to see a future without Gio; would it change anything? Of course, he saw nothing. Sometimes his ability did what ever it wanted; especially when it concerned himself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 04:45:57 AM
Gio gave Henry a confused and startled look. The future was better with him dead?! “She’s....she’s lying to you. She’s messing with your head. Please. He—“ Giovanni coughed and put both his arms around Casiel, leaning on his greatly, head against his shoulder.

Faline felt the release on her body and hissed. The teleporter’s control was gone. She raced out into the hallway, bloody knife still drawn and stopped with she saw Gio and Casiel in the hall, “There you are!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 05:13:34 AM
CUTENESS!)

Henry's jaw was clenched, his hands curled in tight fists at his sides. If he wavered in his decision it would be bad for him; he would probably lose Nat's protection and the others would never trust him again. They would probably leave him behind.
"NO! I've seen it for myself; she's not lying, at least not completely," he said

Casiel gently dropped to his knees, trying to gently lie Giovanni down, now pressing his hand to the wound in his chest as hard as he could. Then the girl who attacked them appeared. Cas raised his hand, hoping that maybe, if he was able to touch her, he'd be able to affect her memories.

"The teleporter is far too much of a liability for me to let him live," Nataliya said. "Hell Child," she declared, pointing at Cas. "Step away from him, and I'll tell you who you were."

Cas froze, staring at the woman. Did she know? No, she was lying. But then again, she did seem to know an awful lot about all of them...

<**both you and Emma can jump back in at any time :p You can try and attack Nat, Faline, or Henry. Go wild have fun**>

Giovanni looked up at him, “Casiel, please, let go. I’ll go. I can take myself far enough away to buy time.” He whispered through his teeth, “Just let go.”

Faline watched as Giovanni dropped to the ground and stopped walking toward them, a wicked smirk on her face, “He’s dying. See Nataliya. I did it. I did it for you.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 05:59:11 AM
"You could have done a more efficient job of it," Henry muttered, glaring at Faline. He stood by Nataliya, making no move towards Gio to heal him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 06:21:09 AM
"You don't have the strength for that," Casiel said, voice strained. And even if he did, he'd bleed out alone. But the look of determination on Giovanni's face reminded him that it wasn't his decision to make. "Just... make it out alive." He then stepped back.

"Yes, but Henry is right- you didn't finish him off," Nat replied in a bored tone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 06:24:27 AM
Seeing as we can't just let him die, what should we do?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 06:24:37 AM
“I’ll be back for you,” Gio promised and then, in an instant, he was gone.

“No!” Faline screamed in an animalistic cry and then she lept onto Casiel, swinging her knife for his throat, “I’ll kill you! Where did he go?!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 06:28:16 AM
Casiel jumped out of the way of Faline, grabbing her arm, focusing. He didn't focus on any particular memory, just tried to jumble them up a bit, make her lost and confused.

Nataliya's jaw clenched. Things were not working out according to plan.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 07:05:23 AM
Faline pulled away and held her head. A massive migraine hit her and she backed up against the wall, whimpering as her mind tried to reorder itself. “Why you do? What this? Fix. Fix can’t”

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 07:20:20 AM
"Calm down, it's only temporary," Casiel jeered, prepared to punch her in the gut when Nataliya grabbed him by the shoulder.

"I meant what I said earlier," she told him. "Join me, and I'll tell you who you are."

Cas tore away from her, pure hatred in his eyes. "You're exactly the kind of person I hate," he growled. "I'd never join you. I'm not about to betray the others," he spat, now looking at Henry.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 07:28:45 AM
(Ok I have a minute so imma just hop back in)

Elisha had been talking with Mateline when she heard a lot of noise and yelling. Initially she had thought that Giovanni and Casiel were trying to escape without them - she wouldn’t be surprised - but it had escalated beyond that. She headed down the hall, making sure to keep out of the line of sight, arriving in time to see Giovanni teleport away, bloodied. Henry was standing by Nataliya, and there was someone else she didn’t know, someone who seemed to be working for the strange woman. Through some strange sense of loyalty, she felt that she had to do something to help Casiel, despite not knowing him. She knew it would expose herself as present and so she deliberated before finally deciding; with that, she drew in a breath, beginning to drain the air from the room.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 07:37:20 AM
Henry glared at the floor, too ashamed to meet Cas' eyes. "I did what I had to do," he said. As the air slowly drain from the room, Henry found it harder and harder to breathe; a sensation he was familiar with. Elisha. He looked around, sucking in laboured breaths, "Elisha! Stop this!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 07:39:41 AM
Nataliya smirked at Cas' outburst. "Then allow me to tell you this to pique your interest: you are not what you've been led to think you are." Cas glared at her and Henry, confused. What had she meant by that? He didn't have time to react, however, as he soon found himself struggling to breathe.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 07:44:13 AM
Elisha kept going, though she didn’t know how long she’d be able to hold it for. It was a bigger room than she was accustomed to with more people than she’d ever attempted to subdue, including the woman, Nataliya, who probably would figure a way out of the situation. Hopefully, she could hold out long enough to at least make them unconscious.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 07:56:13 AM
Faline was holding her head still when suddenly the air started to feel thin. She took short small breaths, gasping a bit in fear.

Meanwhile, Giovanni found himself just outside the facility. He pulled himself up and looked around before calling, “A doctor! I need a doctor!” Two men came over and supported him, carrying him to the nearest doctor and apothecary.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 08:02:55 AM
Nataliya swore under her breath. She should gone to kill the teleporter herself. She grabbed Henry by the arm and dragged him away, hoping to get out before they lost consciousness.

"Elisha!" Casiel gasped, struggling to stand again. "Stop!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 08:30:21 AM
Henry stumbled along after Nataliya, struggling to suck in breaths. If he’d been thinking rationally he would have realized that he was setting himself down the very path that would turn the others against him. he went with nataliya anyway, too upset and angry to realize this
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 08:37:31 AM
The men took Giovanni to the doctor and laid him on a table. The doctor poured essence on the wound to clear it of any infection which caused Giovanni to seethe in sharply but then he took out what looked like a sewing kit and odd string. Giovanni looked at the doctor nervously, "What is that?" The doctor readied himself, "It's a new way to close wounds from France. I learned it on the battle fields. You simply sew the skin back together. It's safer than cauterizing it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 08:40:48 AM
They fled through a hidden door, entering a hall with plenty of oxygen. "Those little brats," Nataliya hissed. If only they'd been good and gone along with what she'd wanted. Now they'd all have to pay.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 08:49:15 AM
Henry fell to his knee, sucking in desperate breaths. He glared  up at nataliya, “I better not regret joining you,” he growled. So far the decision seemed to have been a or one.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 08:54:52 AM
Elisha couldn't see Henry or Nataliya anymore, and she could barely hold out any longer with the air, so she let go, exhaling, letting the air back into the room. She stood there for a moment, spots dancing in front of her eyes as her body readjusted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 09:02:20 AM
"Trust me, you'd regret staying with them and dying even more," Nat grumbled.

Cas scrambled over to Elisha. "We need to find Gio. We need to find him and get out of here right now. He's hurt!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 09:04:11 AM
(for Emma's sake, should we just say Mateline comes along too?)

Elisha nodded. "How far do you think he could have gotten?" she asked. Now that she had made herself Nataliya's enemy, she did not want to stick around.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 09:32:13 AM
When he finally caught his breath, Henry got to his feet. “If I hadn’t betrayed them I doubt they would have felt the desire to kill me” Henry grumbled. “But I guess it’s too late for that now. What are we supposed to do now? They’re going to escape”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 02, 2019, 09:39:26 AM
[ah sorry, I'm back]

Mateline had rushed into the room with Elisha and was standing there panting at the sight of things. "Hopefully not too far," she said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 09:54:16 AM
As Faline regained air, her mind straightened out while she just thought about breathing. She wiped her knife on her worn leather pants and slid it back into the sheath in her boot. She began to walk towards the direction she saw Nat and Henry go. She had failed and couldn’t imagine Nataliya would be pleased.

Through great pain, the doctor stitched Gio’s wound and sterilized the one on his side from his sparring with Cas. The doctor then bandaged him and gave him a plain tunic to wear over top. Giovanni laid back on the cool stone slab and closed his eyes, soon falling asleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 09:58:46 AM
"Let them," Nataliya said coolly. "They won't get far. And wherever they go, I'll find them."

"I don't know where he went," Casiel said. "But Mateline's right- he was really hurt, he couldn't have gone very far."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 10:07:13 AM
"Okay, so how do we get out of here?" Elisha asked. "It's not like we can walk out the front door. Nataliya's smart, she'll have guards at all the exits."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 10:25:20 AM
"Then we'd better be prepared to fight our way out," Casiel said. "You there!" he said to a few wandering spirits. "Scout our path for us! Let us know if any enemies lie ahead." The ghosts flew off and Casiel followed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 10:35:24 AM
"So you can command them," Elisha murmured. She wondered why Mateline couldn't, but Cas could. She followed Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 02, 2019, 10:39:49 AM
Mateline glanced at Elisha at that comment, it was clear the way it was directed. She had to admit she was jealous of Casiel, the ghosts never listened to her. She had given up trying long ago.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 10:41:33 AM
"They are very powerful," Henry said, "How do you plan on stopping a group of demi-gods with abilities like theirs?" he questioned. He felt quite useless in comparison to them; all he could do was see the future, which really didn't help in the middle of a fight

(still not sure how when will be the right moment for him to learn of his other power :P)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 10:43:33 AM
<**what was his other power again? :P**>

"They listen a little, when they want to," Casiel replied gruffly.

"I can't stop them," Nataliya shrugged. "But my threats from earlier still stand: everyone, and I mean everyone, will know their names and faces. I can't stop them, but society will."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 10:53:23 AM
Faline found Nataliya and held her head up, despite being ashamed and swallowed, “What do you wish for me to do, ma’am?” She asked quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 10:58:53 AM
telekinesis :P)


Henry nodded slowly, unable to stop the series of dark thoughts running through his mind, "well...good," Henry muttered. Maybe if they all died, they would never get the change to kill him. It was a terrible thought, but he was afraid and determined to change his fate.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 11:29:43 AM
<**oh right :p okay well maybe Faline will take Henry to try and stop them so she can prove herself to Nat? Then, during the fight, his powers will be awakened?**>

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 11:58:49 AM
"See if you and Henry can slow them down a little," Nataliya ordered. "Seeing as I doubt you'll be able to actually stop them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 12:03:05 PM
"Wait, me!? What am I supposed to do?" he said in alarm; he couldn't take them on with his pathetic abilities.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 12:20:34 PM
"Any idea if they're actually leading us to an exit?" Elisha asked. The longer they were in here, the greater chance they had at being recaptured; they didn't know this place, but Nataliya and her people did.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 12:33:53 PM
Faline seethed and then nodded for Henry to follow, “Let’s go,” she said and hurried away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 12:36:06 PM
Henry glared back at Nataliya before following after Faline, "Do you have any abilities?" Henry asked her curiously as he tried to keep up
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 12:37:30 PM
"Figure it out," Nataliya growled. "Now go!"

"They'd have no reason to lead us astray," Casiel pointed out. Of course, the place was huge; much larger than he first realized. Could ghosts get lost?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 03:01:26 PM
Faline didn’t answer him at first but then as they ran through the halls, she paused and took a breath, “I don’t. I was trained as assassin since I was taken as a little girl.” She told him, “He controlled me. That teleporter. I feel....violated. And the man who touched me and hurt my head...I couldn’t...think” she told him
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 03:14:53 PM
He stopped with her, breathing exceptionally hard, "Just a girl...that doesn't seem right," he said. Henry thought about Gio and Cas' powers; no one should have such power over other people's minds. "They must be stopped. There's no telling the terrible things they could do with those abilities"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 02, 2019, 03:36:07 PM
"You're right, let's get going quick before they find us." Mateline hated everything about the current situation, how could Henry betray them like that?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 03:39:34 PM
Faline nodded and then headed around a corner into the mess hall. She slowed her pace, trying not cause commotion. That's when she saw the two girls and Cas go past through another entrance. Her nostrils flared and she picked up speed, "This way."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 03:42:40 PM
As they ran they passed the training room again. Cas decided to duck inside, figuring stealing a few weapons was a good idea. "Grab something to defend yourselves with," he told the girls.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 03:46:25 PM
"Good idea," Elisha said. She grabbed a sword, testing it's balance, but finding it too heavy. She set it down and picked up another one, a more slender one, which was much more comfortable. She grabbed a couple knives as well, strapping them to her leg under her cloak so she could potentially use them as a surprise if need be.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 02, 2019, 03:47:37 PM
Thinking back to Elisha's earlier words, she figured her best weapons were her powers, so Mateline simply grabbed a knife as it was the only one she'd tried so far. "Ready."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 03:51:09 PM
Casiel found a handful of throwing knives and darts and shoved them into his boots and belt. Satisfied he once again started following the spirits. "This place is a maze," he hissed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 04:02:44 PM
Henry grumbled irritably as she started moving quickly again. He followed after her, growing more and more anxious about the upcoming conflict
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 04:04:10 PM
"It's probably how that psychopath keeps her prey inside," Elisha mused, walking a step behind Casiel so as to let him lead (or follow, if you were counting the spirits).
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 04:12:58 PM
Faline moved down the hall and pulled the knife from her boot before taking a vile from her pocket. The manticore poison. She used her mouth to pull the top off and dripped one drop down her blade while she stood just outside the sparring room. She replaced the top, pressing her chin down to close it and then held her knife carefully upright so it would cover the length and then looked at Henry, "Ready?" she asked him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 04:16:15 PM
With his eyes set on her poisoned knife he shook his head, "no, but there's no turning back now," he said. "have any spare weapons at least?" he asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 02, 2019, 04:24:35 PM
Faline grabbed the metallic broach off the front of her tunic, pulling it upward, it revealed to be a dagger that cradled in her chest. She handed it to Henry, the blade warm from being against her skin in its holster. "It's short, but sharp."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 02, 2019, 04:28:41 PM
"Wish I had a better sense of direction," Casiel muttered. The ghosts were chattering away, become more excitable. "Down this way," he said. "I think they've found a way out!'
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 02, 2019, 04:31:31 PM
Elisha picked up speed, a slight hop in her step. She wanted out of here now. She didn't like being in a place where it would be easy to take control of her for something. Finding the exit of this place would be the best thing that could have happened to her since she met these other demigods.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 02, 2019, 04:34:00 PM
Henry took the dagger from her, smiling gratefully, "Thank you," he said. He closed his eyes, sifting through visions of the others. He looked down one of the halls, "they're going this way," Henry told her, pointing down a hallway.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 12:27:16 AM
“You’re proving very useful,” Faline told him with a smirk and then headed the direction he said. She saw their backs as they ran and took off in a sprint, leaping and put an arm around Elisha, bringing her knife to Elisha’s thigh and attempting to cut her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 02:54:11 AM
Mateline tried to stifle her cry at the surprise attack, swinging her knife to try and protect Elisha. Something inside of her told her she ought to be using her powers, but she was too afraid to try.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 03:08:12 AM
Elisha felt Faline’s arm around her but managed to twist away, narrowly avoiding the attack. She gripped her sword, but swinging it now would only hit Mateline who was too close. “Do something,” she growled at Mateline, hoping she would use her power to at least subdue Faline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 03:28:07 AM
Mateline locked eyes with Elisha and nodded once, knowing she had to. So she grabbed Faline’s arm with her hand in a vice grip and dig into the woman’s mind, searching for her fears to exploit.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:19:01 AM
(Aw Faline, her poor mind’s gonna be broken)

Faline was about to swing when Mateline’s abilities took a hold on.

She saw herself as a little girl, punching another girl in the orphanage for taking her bowl of gruel and being dragged out of the home and tossed into the streets, sitting in the London rain and mud, shivering alone.

Things went forward and it was the future, Nataliya tossing her out in the same way, shaking her head in grave disapproval, leaving Faline with no one to turn to, a lone soul with no one to prove her worth to. Then the vision changed to her, walking the streets alone and hiding in an alley, face and hands bloody, chewing on raw meat and bone like an animal. Her unleashed nature revealed without a leader reigning her in.

Faline struggled and tried to pull hard away from Madeline, “No! No!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 04:45:06 AM
“Keep holding her arms,” Elisha said, now untying one of the cords that was holding one of the knives in place. She began to tie it around Faline’s wrists, binding them together.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:49:22 AM
Casiel watched the girls work, equal parts amused and disturbed. The look on Faline's face was nothing short of pure horror. "Just what did you do to her?" he asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:52:05 AM
Mateline kept hold of Faline desperately, pulling out of the vision in shock. “There was no other choice,” she told Cas, shame deeply embedded I. Her words.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 05:02:14 AM
Elisha stepped back once Faline's hands were bound. "You did well," she said to Mateline, trying to comfort her. "Now the question is, do we just leave her here, or do we finish her?" Disgust tipped her words, as Elisha was beginning to feel the rage rising in her, the same anger she felt when she figured out who deserved to die after causing someone else pain. 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 05:12:29 AM
Henry hid himself as the other attacked faline. He would have to do something! But what? He looked at the knife in his hand; it would have to do. He stepped out from behind the wall and threw his dagger at Madeline with surprising accuracy. “Let her go”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 05:40:01 AM
Faliine’s mind began to readjust and she struggled against the ropes, “I’ll kill you all. I’ll start with her,” she seethed, Mateline in her sights, “And it’ll be long and painful and then you,” she spat at Elisha before she turned to look at Casiel, “And you...I’m gonna bathe in the blood of you and your little teleporter friend for messing with my head. I’m gonna make you watch as the skin off his face is peeled away the way he made me feel raw when he controlled me.” She dribbled on vileley. She suddenly swept her leg under Elisha’s feet knocking her to the ground and put her boot on the girll’s throat, “You leave and I’ll crush her windpipe” she then heard the knife rush through the wind last her head and turned to see Henry there to defend her. Her eyes grew wide.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 05:45:21 AM
Elisha's eyes flashed dangerously as Faline's boot pressed down on her neck. Oh, this woman was going to get one hell of an electrocution if she continued.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 05:46:39 AM
<**damn girl :p**>

There he was, the traitor. Casiel backed away from Faline, as if the pure venom and hatred in her voice could physically hurt him, turning his attention to Henry. He grabbed one of the throwing knives and flung it, aiming for his chest.

<**and now would be the perfect time to stop it mid air :P**>

Mateline gasped as Henry’s knife embedded itself deep into her stomach, unable to stop it. She stumbled back and watched in horror as Faline regained control. “Don’t touch her!” She ground out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 06:37:20 AM
The sparks were rising now, twitches of electricity starting to move across Elisha's body as it became harder to breathe. Ironically, her other power was being triggered by a lack of oxygen, which was something she would inflict on others with her primary power. The sparks started out small and kept getting bigger, until there were chain links of electricity running across her body, converging at Faline's heel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 07:22:58 AM
Henry saw the knife hurling towards him a second too late to avoid it. He raised his arms as if to protect himself, "No!" he cried in fear, expecting the knife to plunge into him but it didn't. Henry looked up in bewilderment; the knife had stopped in mid air! "Well that's new," he said, a sick smile creeping on his face. He casually walked over to the knife and grabbed it out of the air. "Elisha, stop" he said, ready to throw the knife at her if necessary

Faline pulled her leg away, squealing and swiftly kicking her in the side as she pulled back and stumbled onto her rear, staying behind Henry’s legs as she peered and watched Henry’s new ability with a smirk. “kill her Henry. You don’t want her to kill you. End them all. Change your future.”

Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 07:40:55 AM
Henry had never killed a person; he wasn't sure he was capable of something like that. Feline was right though; if he didn't do something, he would die. What was one life if it meant his own survival? "I'm sorry Elisha..." Henry muttered before throwing the knife at her, letting his newly discovered ability guide it's path.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 07:45:44 AM
Another new ability? This was becoming a serious problem. Casiel decided that, if they managed to make it out of there, everyone was going to sit down together and have a long, serious talk about the powers they possessed; they couldn't risk getting surprised anymore. He threw a few more knives, aiming for Faline this time, before hurrying for the exit. "Run!" he yelled. There was no more time to fight; they had to flee.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 09:28:45 AM
Moving with the knife in her stomach made Mateline feel I’ll, so she hastily pulled it out, stifling a cry and she grabbed Elisha [who may or may not be seriously injured?]. She started to run with Cas, feeling hopeless at their plight.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 09:36:34 AM
As the knives came Faline's way, she dodged one, but ended up just getting another one caught on her cheek, slicing against the side and leaving her face bleeding. Another one hit her shoulder instead of her chest when she dodged, but sliced her arm, making her scream violently from both wounds. She buried her face in the back of Henry's knee, in a lot of pain and upset they were getting away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 10:08:57 AM
Henry did not have very good control of his newly discovered ability. He tried desperately to stop them from running, using his ability to immobilize them. All he really did was slow them down a bit; it was too difficult to try on all of them, so he gave up and turned his attention to Faline. Henry placed his hands on her shoulder first, let his power flow into her until the wound knitted itself together. He knelt down in front of her, placing a hand on her cheek until that wound also closed. "I...couldn't stop them, I'm sorry" he said regretfully. If only he knew how to use this new power better.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 10:13:29 AM
Faline hadn't flinched when he held her shoulder, but when Henry went to touch her face, she pulled away at first before realizing it was just better to let him heal it. She closed her eyes and allowed it before pulling away and nodding behind her, "Untie me." She sat with her knees up, glaring at the backs of her enemies as they escaped, "You're not the one who has to worry. Nataliya needs you. You'll hardly be punished for something like this..." she murmured and looked down at the ground.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 10:14:01 AM
Cas burst through the exit, into an empty street, not slowing down until he rounded a corner. That had been close. Way too close. He looked back, seeing both girls injured, and scowled. "You two need to get medical attention. I'm going to find Gio."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 10:29:10 AM
"Then I will tell her it was all my fault," Henry said as he untied the ropes and threw them aside. Henry got to his feet and reached out his hand to help her up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 10:35:25 AM
Faline looked at Henry’s hand for a moment but then turned and pushed herself up with two hands, “I can handle whatever Nataliya decides for me. I don’t need your pity,” she told him and brushed her tunic off before starting back down the hall, wiping the blood from her cheek and limping slightly from having her leg electrocuted. She rubbed her wrists where they’d been tied. “Nat will have a plan.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 10:38:45 AM
Mateline groaned a little, pressing a hand to her stomach. “We have to stick together,” she said, afraid he planned to leave them in order to find Gio. Her mind felt all fuzzy and she hated it.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 10:49:25 AM
Elisha shook her head. The knife hasn’t hit her bad, and though she was bleeding, she knew it was a surface wound. “Mine’s a flesh wound, I can handle it. Mateline, on the other hand...” she trailed off, looking at Mateline’s stomach. “She needs a healer, there’s nothing I can do. That’s too deep.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 10:52:21 AM
Henry watched her limp off down the hall, shaking his head. "just trying to help" he muttered. She certainly had a lot of pride. Henry hurried after her, hoping Nataliya wasn't too angry with them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 10:54:41 AM
Casiel sighed. "Okay, fine. We'll find a healer. But the moment we do I'm going to find him." He jogged ahead a bit, calling out for help. Luckily a few kind strangers came to their aid.

<**aaaand they'll be taken to the same place Gio is at, for convenience obviously. Also, I'll be disappearing for a while so feel free to control Cas or Nat if you need**>

(Ahem, meanwhile we wait for these people cause I'm rather just wait...)

Faline looked at Henry as he caught up and her demeanor cooled a bit after she was done recooperating, "Thank you...for coming in after me. I've never done well with," she paused and then came up with the word, "Partners."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 02:24:42 PM
Mateline pulled her hand away from her stomach and saw how much blood she was losing. As the strangers led them to a doctor, she felt what she could only describe as wavy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 02:35:13 PM
Henry grinned, "Yes, I could tell," he said while walking along beside her. "these demi-gods...they are extremely powerful," Henry said, "I think a partner may not be a bad idea," he said cautiously; she seemed to be rather unstable; he would have to be careful around her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 02:38:12 PM
"Demigods," Faline repeated and swallowed hard, "I don't know...what she expects me to do in response. I've always done Nat's jobs quickly and quietly, but these people were in our own building and I couldn't manage." she looked over at him, "You looked...surprised when you stopped that knife. Had you never done that before?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 02:44:44 PM
Henry nodded, "I was surprised; I have never done anything like that before," he said, "Though, I've seen myself do it in visions," he admitted. He looked at his hands in awe, "just imagine the possibilities if I can master this ability" he said with a bit of excitement.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 02:52:10 PM
Faline looked over at him and then took his hands, looking at them and then stopped and looked over his face, "Do you control the visions?" she asked quietly, searching his eyes, like she would be able to see the visions in them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 03:05:46 PM
Henry nodded slowly, "Sometimes, if I really concentrate. Usually I have no control whatsoever," he admitted, "Perhaps, with practice I could see exactly what I want to see rather than whatever my father wants me to see"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 03:08:24 PM
"Do you just see your own future or could you tell me mine?" she asked him, stepping a little closer.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 03:10:20 PM
Henry stepped away slightly, unsure if he wanted to be used like that, "I suppose I could try, but knowing your own fate can be overwhelming," he warned
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 03:17:53 PM
When Henry stepped away from her, Faline felt a little slighted and supposed it was only fair. She had a certain...temperment and violent streak she knew frightened people. She slid her hands off of his and swallowed, "Don't um...don't worry about it." she stopped by a room and pulled a key from around her neck, unlocking the door to open it. She then looked at Henry, "My dagger?" she held out her hand.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 03:32:01 PM
Henry looked at her a moment, feeling frustrated; he had not meant to upset her. He reluctantly pulled out the dagger and placed n her hand, "If you are certain that you wish to know what the future holds for you, I will try....but You must be absolutely certain," he told her seriously.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 03:36:49 PM
Faline watched as Henry seemed to struggle to hand her back her dagger. She furrowed her brow, but took it and slid it into place in the front of her tunic. She then looked up at him and chewed on her lip, seeming to mull it over. She knew what her future held. More death, pain, destruction she had little to no control over. Faline stepped into her room and looked back at him, "Just...if your father ever gives you any visions about me, you'll let me know? Promise?" she asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 03:42:56 PM
They were led to an apothecary, being told the doctor there would be able to patch them up. Cas wasn't so confident in his abilities, however; the place was teeming with dead people.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 03:45:25 PM
Henry nodded, "Of course, that I can certainly do," he told her; he just did not feel comfortable purposefully looking into someone's future. He stood there awkwardly, not sure what to do or where to go; he was weary of reporting to nataliya, knowing she would not be happy with them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 03:51:54 PM
Giovanni had woken up a few minutes before and was helping himself to a cup of tea when he saw them come in, the girls and Casiel. He froze, incredibly thankful and unable to believe his eyes. The girls looked horrific and Casiel seemed afraid.

"Follow me," Faline told him and nodded for him to come into her quarters. It was nothing special. A better bed, a real mattress filled with feathers and straw. She had a chest with some clothing inside in the corner and a few more delicate things like jewelry and knives sitting on a table. She sat down on the end of her bed and unlaced her boots, pulling them off carefully, especially on the leg that Elisha had hurt. She then was very cool as she pulled up the leg of her pants, though a bit embarassed, seeing as it was a bit scandalous (for that era I imagine) but her leg was definitely damaged, red streaks like lightning flared up her leg, "Can you heal this?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 03:55:36 PM
"You're alive!" Casiel exclaimed, rushing over to him. "You were able to get help in time?" he asked, searching him over, though any signs of blood were gone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 03:57:53 PM
"I mean, I'm standing here look at you, so...yes," Giovanni said and smiled brightly, gently holding the side of Casiel's face to bring his eyes back up to his, "What happened? You guys look like a mess. Was it that girl? Where's Henry?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 03:58:14 PM
Mateline stared around the place, eyes wide with fear. When Casiel exclaimed though, her head whipped around to stare at Gio in awe. She clutched onto Elisha for support, too afraid to let the doctor at her alone yet. "He made it," she said in almost a whisper.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 03:58:57 PM
Henry entered her quarters and was unable to stop his eyes from wandering around the room. When she pulled up the leg of her pants his eyes grew wide at the sight of her leg; he was not sure how much he could do for her. Henry knelt down before her and placed his hands on her injured leg, "I can try" Henry said while focusing his healing power on her leg
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:01:38 PM
When his hands touched her skin, she seethed in painfully, looking away. The external wounds and scars faded, but inside Faline could still feel pain in her ankle, like her bones had been electrified. She swallowed, "That's...that's enough. I think that's fine." she told him and then, still not meeting his eyes, she said a quiet "Thank you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 04:04:39 PM
"That he did," Elisha mused. "You need to get seen," she said, trying to lead Mateline over to where Gio was. If he got help, maybe he could point them in the direction of his healer. She eyed Gio warily; though she didn't like him, they would have to make a temporary truce.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:07:40 PM
"I'm fine, though Mateline and Elisha not so much," Casiel replied, looking back to where the girls were. The doctor had approached Mateline first, assessing her injuries. "That girl was absolutely mad. You should have heard the threats she made." His expression turned dark. "Henry betrayed us. He's with them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:09:24 PM
Mateline let the doctor look her over, growing weaker as she continued to lose blood at a rapid pace. "We need to get out of this place before Nataliya finds us again," she told Elisha, now sitting on a bed near Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:11:24 PM
Giovanni pulled his had from Casiel's face and nodded, "The doctor here is good. He uses odd means, but it was less painful and I think I'm better for it. He said it just may take longer to heal," Giovanni then looked at Casiel and then the girls, "I'm afraid I may not be able to teleport us all to Greece. Even with rest, I couldn't bring myself back to you earlier."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 04:15:40 PM
Henry withdrew his hands and sat back on the ground, breathing hard from the effort, "You're sure that's good enough?" he asked; he could sense that he ankle was not quite right.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 04:16:07 PM
Elisha pulled her sleeve down, exposing her shoulder and arm where she had been slashed. It was worse than she had initially thought, but certainly survivable, not nearly as bad as Mateline's. "So are walking to Greece, then?" she asked, cynicism lacing her words. Something about Gio's presence just irked her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:17:35 PM
"You can stay behind with that attitude," Casiel retorted. "It's looking like we'll have to find ourselves another boat." He turned back to Gio, concerned. "But he did manage to heal you, right? Even with these new methods?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:20:33 PM
Faline just nodded and pulled the leg of her pant back down. She gathered her boots and laced them back up, "We have to go see Nataliya," she said and then stood up and this time put her hand out to him, "Let me do the talking."

"Yes, I will be fine, but I certainly need more rest. I still have some coins. We should see about an inn for the night," Gio said to Cas and then looked around to Elisha and raised an eyebrow, "Though she could sleep out in a stable."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:21:45 PM
Mateline was thoroughly concerned about this doctor and his new methods. Not only that, but with the placement of her wound she would have to undress in order to be helped properly. When the doctors hand reached to pull the fabric away, she instinctively slapped it. “She goes where I go,” she informed Gio coldly. As far as she was concerned, Elisha was the one she trusted the most.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 04:24:44 PM
"Let the doctor see," Elisha said to Mateline, noticing her slap the doctor away. "You're not going to get better otherwise." And then, quieter, so Mateline only would hear, "You have ways of protecting yourself against unwanted advances, anyway."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:27:13 PM
Mateline gave her a worried look but nodded, letting the doctor pull a curtain for privacy and let him do his job. She didn’t like his method of seeing the way he was, however she really didn’t have a choice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:27:52 PM
"I could always get us a room, or two," Casiel reminded him. "But we should definitely rest. I've a feeling we've got a long journey ahead of us."

Nataliya was in her chambers, pacing back and forth. She saw the runaways, still in the city. Good, no need to panic. There was never any need to panic.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:30:49 PM
"Ah yes, the old convince them you've already paid in a false memory trick," Gio teased him and then nodded, "Two rooms may definitely be the better way to go." He then looked down at his chest, "You know before she stabbed me, I must confess, the girl with the knife was pretty beautiful, though I prefer to be the way to crawl into bed on someone," he joked and slapped Casiel's shoulder playfully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 04:34:46 PM
Henry took her hand and let her help him up, "this will be pleasant," he grumbled. As they went down the halls to Nataliya's chambers, he tried focusing on the others; maybe if he provided Nataliya with some useful information, she wouldn't be so angry that they failed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:36:27 PM
Faline stood outside Nat's door and for a moment she just looked at it, nervous, before she took a deep breath and wrapped on it, "Miss Nataliya, it's Henry and I."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:38:05 PM
The stitching didn’t take that long, thought it felt like hours to Mateline. It left her exhausted, but too weary to sleep. Not until they were safer. As soon as the doctor walked away, she was on the edge of the bed, eyes a little glazed over but intent on their conversation. “Let’s get to it then.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 03, 2019, 04:39:53 PM
Once the doctor was finished with Mateline, he came over and checked out Elisha's wound, cleaned it, and put a bandage over it. It was a quick process overall. "Agreed," she said. "We should get as far away from here as is possible for us in our varied states."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:42:14 PM
Casiel rolled his eyes at him, turning away as, strangely enough, he felt himself blushing. "She was a right lunatic and you're lucky to be alive."

"You weren't able to apprehend them," Nataliya said, not slowing in her pacing. "I expected as much."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:47:43 PM
"I'm lucky you were there to help me," Gio mentioned casually before clapping his hands and looking at the girls, "If you ladies are ready to move, we'll head to an inn in the next town and rest there for the night."

Faline looked at the ground and nodded, "They were too much for me alone. I wouldn't survived the three of them if Henry hadn't helped. He's proven more useful than we imagined even. He can control objects with just his mind alone now." she informed Nataliya and then took a breath, "I'm sorry Nat. I did the best I could, I swear."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 04:51:08 PM
AS instructed, Henry stood by Faline's side, keeping his mouth shut; she seemed to be handling the situation well enough. If necessary he would volunteer information on the others next move. He had foreseen them checking into an inn for the night.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 04:52:07 PM
Mateline nodded and stood carefully, her face growing pale with the feeling of moving. She reached for Elisha’s elbow for some support as subtly as possible. “No time like the present,” she murmured as she was already making her way to get out of this hellhole as soon as possible.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 04:52:48 PM
Nataliya's eyes lit up. "Moving things with your mind? Oh, that will be useful." She turned to Faline, expression turning sour. "As for you, I expect no further screw ups. Are we clear?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 04:54:26 PM
Faline didn't falter a moment as she looked Nataliya in the eyes and nodded, "Yes ma'am. I will have the teleporter dead and the others returned promptly," she told her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 05:09:41 PM
"Good girl," Nataliya said with an approving nod. "Now, run along why don't you? Get some rest, and give chase in the morning."

Casiel led the group outside, down the narrow pathways.  "How far's the next town?" he asked, hoping one of them knew.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 05:12:42 PM
Faline nodded again and then motioned for Henry to follow her as she turned to leave, only a slight limp still in her left leg.

"One of the other patients told me it wasn't too far. Just through the woods," Gio told them and continued to look back, watching behind the girls to make sure no one was following.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 05:17:13 PM
Henry eyed Nataliya for a moment, feeling a little uneasy. Part of him still felt like he'd picked the wrong side. He turned and followed Faline out
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 05:24:15 PM
"Thank goodness," Casiel grumbled as they trudged along. Soon enough they came upon the farming fields surrounding the outskirts of the city and then, finally, the woods.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 05:28:03 PM
Faline walked Henry down the hall to an empty room with a bed and opened it, "You can have this one. I'm just around the corner if you need something," she told him, her face was filled with concern though. Nat's words ringing through her mind, the disappointment in her voice.

Gio looked at the woods and let out a sigh, looking at Mateline, "I could carry you. Your injury looked pretty bad."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 05:35:49 PM
Henry stepped inside, looking around the room with a sad expression. He wondered if he would ever return home to his mother; she would probably assume something terrible happened to him. He realized in that moment just how much his life was changing; it would never be normal again. He turned back around, looking at a noticeably concerned Faline, "Hey, we won't disappoint her this time." Henry said confidently. "I know where they are going," he revealed, "We can catch them by surprise"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 05:38:34 PM
Faline looked at him and swallowed, "Good. Then we'll go in the morning." she said and headed for the door. She paused and looked back at him for a moment, "Good night Henry." she said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 05:46:24 PM
Mateline shook her head before he had even finished his sentence. “I can walk,” she said. If there was one thing she didn’t want to appear as in front of someone she still didn’t completely trust, it was weak. She could get through it. Besides, he had been injured as well, and he wasn’t crying about it. She fixed her face into a stiff mask of unfeeling and pushed on through the woods.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 03, 2019, 05:47:56 PM
"You're going to be no good to us if you pass out," Casiel pointed out to her, careful carving out their path. The moonlight was bright, but it only aided them just so. What he wouldn't give to be able to see in the dark at that moment.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 03, 2019, 05:48:00 PM
"Good night Faline," Henry replied, then gently closed the door once she had exited. He sat down on the bed and stared at his hands, wondering what kinds of things he could do with his new power. The rest of that evening, Henry would spend practicing; he wanted to be prepared when they faced the others again.

“He’s hurt too,” she snapped back at Cas. “I don’t need to put my weight on him on top of that. Im a big girl, I can walk.” Every step made her wound burn a little more, but it couldn’t be that far into town, could it?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 05:55:15 PM
"This is my decision. I'm going to end up carrying you if you fall anyway, might as well," Giovanni told her before kneeling down so she could hop on his back. "Come along. It's not much further, I'm sure."

Faline didn't go to her room. She went down to the sparring room, grabbing a volunteer along the way. She spent time just fighting and especially honing her reflexes towards speed. She'd been cut by the knife throwing and she'd been thrown off guard by being touched. After she'd practiced enough that she'd worn her partner out, she headed back to her room, locking the door, she bathed and then laid down to rest.

Giovanni was such a gentleman, it was rather endearing. "I see lights up ahead," Casiel called back to them. "That must be it."

Mateline cast him a glare but moved to climb on as he said, the move taking a substantial stab at her pride. But he was clearly not about to let it go. “If it makes you feel better,” she said with a glower. She had to admit, being off her feet relieved quite a bit of the pain.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 03, 2019, 06:25:02 PM
Giovanni carried Mateline with quite a bit of ease, even despite his chest's wound and held her by her thighs, just behind her knee as they marched along. "I'll put you down just before we get into town if you like," he told her, so no one would have to see her being carried.

Post by: Emma-la on January 03, 2019, 06:27:06 PM
“I would appreciate that,” she told him stiffly, truly grateful for it. “Thank you,” she said in a softer voice, meant only for him. “You really didn’t need to, but thank you.”

<**yes okay good night! I'm going to have them arrive at an inn and have the girls in their own room**>

They finally arrived at the next town and Casiel made a beeline for the first inn he saw. He made quick work of the innkeep, who left the encounter fully believing that Cas had paid for two full rooms. "Ladies down the hall to the left," he said, tossing the key at Elisha, then turned to Giovanni. "You and me are the first door on the right."

“You May be a terrible bunk mate,” Giovanni told him with a chuckle, “We tried to rest earlier and just talked until a woman interrupted to kill me,” he joked. He rolled the muscles of his shoulders, aching just a hit from carrying Mateline for so long. Once in the room, he loosened his boots off and tossed them in a corner before looking at the bed and raising an eyebrow before turning to Casiel, “You mean for us to share? Or for me to sleep on the floor like a dog?” He asked playfully before pulling his tunic off and going over to the glass on the wall to look at his bandages.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 01:13:23 AM
Mateline trudged into their room and plopped herself on the bed, grimacing a little at the action. “Well That was quite a long day, I must say.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 02:40:21 AM
Elisha had caught they keys and headed to the room with Mateline. She pulled out the chair on the other side of the room. There was only one bed, how was this going to work? “Does he expect us to sleep in shifts?” She muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 03:49:06 AM
Casiel frowned. Of course there was only one bed. Of course. "You were badly injured," he replied, kicking his boots off. "You can take the bed. I'll manage."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 03:54:12 AM
Giovanni turned back to him and raised an eyebrow, “I think we discussed that we’ve spent enough nights on the floor. Come on. I won’t touch you,” Gio promised and nodded for him to come join him as he sat down on the bed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 04:04:51 AM
"Was just trying to be polite," Casiel muttered. He crossed the room and sat on the edge of the bed, then immediately fell back, lying down and staring at the ceiling. "I don't think I've ever been this exhausted."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 04:07:56 AM
“You’re telling me,” Gio said as he laid back as well and as he put his arms down, his hand brushed Casiel’s arm and he immediately pulled it away and folded his arms over his chest, swallowing. He then closed his eyes and thought about the sea, “Good night Casiel”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 04:33:00 AM
Casiel gave him a quizzical look. "Awfully tense, you are," he muttered, rolling over onto his side, away from Gio. "Good night, Giovanni," he said softly, closing his eyes.

(Yeaahhhhh. Sorry Mara!)

As soon as light entered the room, Gio was up. He turned and sat on the edge of the bed, pulling back his bandage to look at stitches and seething as the cloth pulled a bit at the scabs that had dried to it. He pressed it back and then got up, opening a window and looking out at their surroundings, inspecting the small town below.

Faline was up and in the mess hall, hair tied behind her head in a tight bun and a short sword attached to her hip. She was eating some scrambled eggs and oat porridge.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 05:48:22 AM
Casiel groaned, covering his head with the pillow. He hadn't slept much the previous night, his mind clouded with nightmares, the same ones he had frequently ever since washing up ashore. "Just once," he sighed. "Just once I'd like to get a good night's rest."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 05:52:40 AM
“I can make that happen,” Giovanni said plainly as he peered down and saw a bakery where they could get bread and probably some eggs, “I could tell you to sleep and your body would just give in,” he told him.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 05:59:27 AM
(no worries, ff was fine, I'll save my thing for Elisha for later cuz it'll make more sense later anyway :P)

Elisha was up early, and generally didn't sleep well that night. Even though they were one town over, they were still close to Nataliya, closer than she liked. When she did a job, she would get as far as possible from that place by whatever means; sometimes that even meant stowing away on farming trucks full of manure. She could smell bread coming from the bakery, and it made her hungry. She looked at Mateline, who was still sleeping. She walked over and pulled the blankets back and shaking her. "Up," she said, before moving to the chair to grab her cloak. 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 06:12:08 AM
"You could actually do that?" Casiel asked, sitting up and attempting in vain to brush his hair out of his face. "Is there anything you couldn't make a person do."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 06:15:26 AM
“I can’t make someone do something they haven’t thought about. I couldn’t tell you to kill yourself if it’s not in your nature to do it. I was scared yesterday about that assassin that it wouldn’t work on her, but apparently she has some internal struggles of some kind,” he mentioned and then sat down on the bed and pulled his boots back on before grabbing his tunic and pulling it back over his head.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 06:19:31 AM
"Huh," Casiel said thoughtfully, finally standing. "So I guess there's no need for me to worry then," he added with a teasing tone as he went about retrieving his boots. "How's the injury? Healing, I hope."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 06:22:51 AM
“Worry about what?” Gio asked curiously before he swallowed and shrugged, “Its uh...it’s fine,” he said and put his hand to his chest, briefly feeling where the bandage was. It still hurt a bit, especially if he brought his arms close to himself. “Let’s get the girls and start out. We need to get a ship to France.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 06:26:48 AM
"About nothing," Cas replied softly. "Yeah, let's get out of here. The more distance we put between ourselves and the crazy people the better." He grabbed a loose leather strap from around one of his boots to tie his hair back, then headed for the door.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 06:53:51 AM
Gio headed out into the hall with Cas and then went to the girl’s room, knocking on the door, “Come on ladies. We need to make tracks or that assassin and Henry will be on our trail.” He called through the door. He then looked at Casiel, “Henry May have already seen where we’re going.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 07:26:14 AM
Henry had stayed up most of the night trying to move things around; it was difficult when he wasn't in a state of desperation, but he'd started to get the hang of it. Sometime during the night Henry had fallen asleep; as was usually the case, his dreams were confusing glimpses of the future. He saw the others in what he thought could be france.


When morning came, he had to force himself up; he was exhausted. Henry dragged himself out of bed and wandered down the halls until he found the mess hall. His eyes quickly settled on Faline; he took a seat beside her after grabbing something to eat, "Morning," he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 07:32:35 AM
Faline looked over at him and smiled softly to herself. She’d never really had people....approach her. She tended to scare everyone away. She finished chewing, “You didn’t sleep,” she responded, noticing the state of him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 07:36:28 AM
Henry picked at the food on his plate, really not that interested in eating. "I slept a little...." Henry said with a shrug, "Was up practicing"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 07:39:13 AM
lol “You won’t be very useful if you’re exhausted,” Faline told him and finished eating. She looked around at the others. A few were looking at them and she just shot them a glare, “Wretched children” she said quietly and then looked at Henry,  “Ever ridden a horse?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 07:39:59 AM
Mateline groaned and sat up, eyes bleary. The knocking on the door made her head pound and she stood with a slight scowl. “So this is life on the run,” she commented dryly. She opened the door as she was pulling her cloak on, wincing a little as her wound pulled with her movement.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 07:41:28 AM
"Sleeping wouldn't have made a difference. Usually my nights are filled with visions; not much rest to be had," he admitted. He looked at her then with a grin, "Of course I've ridden a horse," he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 07:47:48 AM
“I think we can make it with two horses. I can take Mateline with me. Elisha can ride with you,” Gio told Casiel and then looked at Mateline, “Woukd that be alright? Better than being carried?” He teased her. He found her endearing, like a younger sister almost.

Faline nodded, “Good. I’ll ready two horses at the stables. It’s just beyond the barracks. Meet me there when you are finished eating,” she told him and then started to walk away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 07:59:28 AM
Henry nodded, "alright, I will be there soon," he said then forced himself to eat at least a little food. He couldn't be exhausted and hungry; that would make him very useless indeed. Once he couldn't stomach another bite, Henry headed after Faline to the stables
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 08:09:30 AM
Faline had two horses, brown and cream colored by her side, saddled and bridled. She was filling saddle bags with rations of dried meat, bread and a skin of wine. She lastly attached a quiver to the other side of her horse and slid a bow beside it. She looked at Henry as he joined her and took a deep breath, “You should take a weapon”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 08:15:10 AM
"That's fine with me," Elisha said. She turned to Cas. "I'm going to assume you've ridden a horse before?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 08:50:54 AM
"Yes, I've ridden a horse before," Casiel replied flatly. Only twice, of course, but she didn't need to know that.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 08:54:19 AM
Henry had spent his whole life secluded on the farm. He never had need of wielding any sort of weaponry. Throwing that knife at Mateline had been his first real experience with a weapon.
"I suppose that would be wise," Henry said, "What do you suggest?" he asked her
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 09:05:47 AM
Giovanni led the others down and out of the inn and towards the bakery, stopping there and buying two loaves of bread and boiled eggs.

Faline looked at him and took a moment to examine him, trying to figure out where his strength lied. She took the short sword off of her belt and brought it to him, "Take this. I have my dagger, long knife, and bow."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 09:21:42 AM
Henry took the sword from her, looking it over with mild interest. He was surprised to discover how comfortable it felt in his hand, like he'd been using one all his life. Henry smiled at the sword, "I think this will do just fine" he said, then looked to Faline, "Ready to go? I believe they are heading to France" he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 10:15:33 AM
"Whichever way we get it, I suggest we stock up on food," Elisha said. "It's a long ways between here and where we're going." She didn't want to specify where, in case any of Nataliya's people were around.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 11:25:53 AM
“Need I remind you that my mother died because of not being able to pay her rent. You take these people things without paying, they don’t magucally get that money later. Then they can’t pay their rent and have to sell their children or put their home into someone’s debt,” Giovanni said as he handed the baker his money. He glanced back at Casiel, “Let’s go,” he said and nodded for them to follow him. “I will let you steal some horses for us though.”

Faline nodded and easily pulled herself up on her horse and chided her horse to go forward, “Show me the way,” she told Henry.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 12:02:14 PM
Henry pulled himself up just as easily, his horse catching up to hers quickly. "I must confess, I am unfamiliar with the area; I imagine they would be heading to a port with boats," Henry said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 12:10:12 PM
"A port..." Faline murmured to herself, taking a moment to think and then looked to him, "I know it." She spurred her horse and took off, not wanting to lose them, not wanting them to teleport away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 12:14:10 PM
Henry urged his horse on after her, hoping that they would not be too late.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 01:12:56 PM
Mateline gave Gio a wry smile as they walked, trying very hard not to trust him too quickly. “Anything’s better than being carried,” she commented. She glanced at the other two, studying them carefully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 01:31:38 PM
"Guess I can't argue with that." Truth be told Cas had never cared much about the people he stole from- he had always figured it was just the result of being cynical and angry with the world over his circumstances. But maybe it was actually because, deep down, he'd always known he wasn't human? He mulled the thought over as they headed for some stables. Five minutes later he lead two chesnut mares back out to the others.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 01:53:02 PM
Elisha looked at the horses, a warm expression coming across her face. As a child, she had learned to ride, and she had been quite close with her family's horse before it eventually died of age. She walked over and put her hand up so the horse could smell her, and once it had deemed her not a threat, she proceeded to pat it on the nose, smiling as she did. "They're beautiful," she said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 01:55:27 PM
Mateline stared a the horses, keeping a respectful distance. She wasn't scared, per say, just cautious. She didn't exactly have any experience with riding the creatures herself, she had grown up fairly sheltered and too poor. "You know how to ride?" she asked Giovanni.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 03:16:41 PM
"Of course Mateline," he told her and then pulled himself up onto the horse. "I was a squire before I joined you lot. Only a few weeks from being knighted by the queen herself. Now...I suppose finding out more of who we are as demigods, if even such a thing exists, has become a much more pressing matter to me." He put his arm down to help pull her up, "Put your foot in the stirrup and the swing your leg around. Hold tightly to me and you'll have no worries."

Faline pushed her horse forward at quite the speed, trying to close distance between herself and those she'd lost the night before. Nataliya's words ringing through her brain of her not screwing up anymore, the teleporter's control over her body replaying in her mind, making her skin crawl. She was focused. She was not going to let up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 03:21:32 PM
Mateline gave him a slight nervous look but she purses her lips and took his hand, gripping a little tighter than might be necessary and pulled herself up. “You’d better not let me fall off,” she warned with a small smile. “I’ve never ridden before.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 03:26:11 PM
Casiel watched Elisha for a moment. She was clearly comfortable with the animals. "You can ride in front. You seem to have more experience."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 03:26:40 PM
Giovanni chuckled, "I promise, I won't. Just hold tightly." He started the horse on a slow trot, just going around in a few circles so she could get used to the sensation.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 03:32:30 PM
“Alright,” Elisha said. The horses were bringing out a side of her that she had long buried, a kinder, more tender side. She would have to keep it in check, and so she made a mental note to do that. She couldn’t be weak in front of this lot. Despite everything, she still hardly knew them. She pulled herself up onto the horse and adjusted her cloak around her. As she waited for Cas to climb up, she leaned forward on the horse a little, lowering herself to the horse’s ear. “Hello friend,” she murmured. “I hope you’ll let us ride safely.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 03:37:59 PM
Mateline gripped around the waist tightly, eyes going a little wide before she got control of herself and got more used to it. Her grip lessened a little, jealous to see Elisha so comfortable with the animal.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 03:39:54 PM
(I’m personally inclined to agree with Mateline lol)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 03:49:11 PM
Giovanni chuckled a little as he felt her tight grip on him, but then patted her hands when she started to loosen up, “You’ll learn. No time like the present.” It wasn’t often he had a women holding so close to him, but with Mateline, it didn’t feel off. He felt he could protect her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 03:52:49 PM
Cas also climbed onto the mare, positioning himself behind Elisha. It was going to be an uncomfortable ride, he realized upon seeing how close they were going to be. "Let's get this over with," he grumbled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 03:54:45 PM
[i love them]

Mateline gave a little smile at that, though he couldn’t see. “We’d better get going, don’t want to push our luck.” She rolled her shoulders so she was sitting straighter, though she didn’t loosen her hold out of fear of falling. These animals were unpredictable.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 03:56:30 PM
“You are going to have to hold onto me,” Elisha said, turning her head to Casiel. It wasn’t going to be fun but it was what it was. She led the horse around to be next to Gio and Mateline’s horse. “Let’s go.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 04, 2019, 04:09:53 PM
Casiel carefully placed his hands on her torso, still careful not to get too close; he imagined she wouldn't be too keen on that. "How far do you think we'll have to ride?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 04, 2019, 04:16:45 PM
Now that they were away from the townsfolk, Elisha felt a bit more comfortable speaking of their travel plans. “If we head for port Dover in Kent, we could probably sail out of there down to Calais. It’s still English occupied, so we may have a better chance getting in over there.” Elisha knew very well that the political climate was ever-changing thanks to her upbringing. She made sure to keep her information up to date as well, by listening in on conversations when she could.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 04:30:07 PM
"Faline! Slow down!" Henry called out, finding it difficult to keep up with her. He had ridden horses growing up but he was not particularly skilled at it; he feared going any faster. Any mistake would send him flying to the ground.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 04:50:59 PM
Faline pulled at the reigns and her horse slowed a bit, bringing him around in a circle so Henry could catch up and giving Henry an annoyed look.

"Alright, then Elisha can lead us, but we should make a bit of haste...just to stay ahead. I'm sure Henry already knows where we're going to be and that girl is insane, so she may get to us quickly if she knows this area better than us," Gio said as they started along.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 04:56:18 PM
Mateline nodded in agreement, though she was decidedly not looking forward to ‘making haste’ if this wasn’t already it. Travelling this fast felt too dangerous, but she knew there were no other choices. “She really is messed up,” she commented, thinking back to the woman’s fears.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 04:56:58 PM
Henry eventually caught up to her, looking just as annoyed, "Are you trying to kill me?" he said, "Where did you learn to ride like that!?" he said, a hint of awe in his voice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 05:05:04 PM
"Oh?" Giovanni asked, "You and Elisha missed when she came into the men's quarters and crawled over me in bed to try to lure me away from Casiel so she could kill me," he mentioned and chuckled.

"No, I'm trying to catch up to your idiotic group of rebels. I don't want them on some ship before we can get to them," she told him and then sat up straighter, "I've been chasing people down, traveling long distance for jobs for a long time now. I told you, trained since I was a child to do this. Quickly and quietly is sort of the assassin's mantra," she told him and started again, not as quickly this time.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 05:07:38 PM
That startled a laugh out of her, which she quickly changed into a cough. “You don’t say?” It was a ridiculous image to have in her head. “And did it work?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 04, 2019, 05:13:08 PM
Giovanni grit his teeth at Mateline's question and swallowed a little bit before giving a simple, "No."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 05:23:29 PM
Henry said nothing as matched her manageable pace. He didn't want to mention that his vision was of the group, already in France. It probably wouldn't matter how fast they rode. "Do you enjoy it?" he asked curiously, "being an assassin that is"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 04, 2019, 05:25:07 PM
It was clear she had made him uncomfortable in some sort of way, so she dropped it, as curious as she may be. The galloping horse was enough to keep her mind occupied as they rode and a couple of times she let out noises of fear when the horse would do particularly jarring things - which for her were anything other than its normal gait.

"There's a thrill to it. The chase, the hunt. It was hard, the first few times, killing the people. They often beg and struggle and when I was young, I'd have too much sympathy, but the man I worked for before Nat...he took that sympathy away. The more people I killed, the less I feel and now, it's just a job. It makes me feel powerful at times, deciding how someone's life ends," Faline told him, sincerely, generously.

"And you're coming with us all the way to Greece?" Casiel asked her, trying his best not to squeeze her too hard with every bump and jostle. "Just saying, you don't seem like the type to travel with people. Or get along with them, for that matter."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 04, 2019, 06:00:24 PM
She's just making me think of Alice, but obviously crazier :P)

Henry wasn't sure he could ever take pleasure in taking a life; he couldn't imagine killing so many that it became just a job. Henry looked away, frowning as he thought about the path he'd chosen. He wasn't a bad person. He did not want to become like Faline,  the human compassion stamped out of him. "That is...deeply disturbing," he admitted, looking over at her again, "Do you ever wish you could leave this life behind?" he asked

"I'm not all horrible," Elisha replied. "I just don't trust easily. You're all strangers to me, why should I stick my neck out for you all? That being said, it's become quite clear that the Fates want us together, and so I'll follow along until there comes a point where either we become true allies, not just allies of circumstance, or until the Fates give me a sign that I can depart." She smirked a bit. "And it does seem that you'll need someone who can actually manage a kill, instead of feeling guilt and fear for or of it."

"I've killed someone before," Giovanni said and looked over at Elisha, "I've been in battle before. I don't take pleasure in it or anything, but when it's a matter of you dying or him dying, choices have to be made."

Faline looked at her horse's mane and then closed her eyes, "Where would I go? No one would accept me as I am not and without guidance...I tend to be...." She swallowed and shook her head, "No. I belong where I am." She then looked at Henry and her eyes narrowed, she stopped her horse. "Henry, you're not trying to sway me to join you and your little friends are you?" she asked shortly, "If this ends up being some kind of trap for me and I think that you had anything to do with it, I will not hesitate to make a decision on your life either, no matter how much it upsets Nataliya."

"There you are again, with your between-the-lines process," Elisha said, shaking her head. "Sometimes the kill has to be made without your own life being on the line. The world is a cruel place, and to survive, you have to be just as cruel. For perspective, if someone came at you on the orders of someone else, but they felt they had no choice because they were poor and were being offered gold, or because their family was on the line, or something that made them desperate... would you try to save them or would you just end them?"

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 02:45:49 AM
"I wouldn't know any better, so I would probably end up defending myself to the best of my ability. But if they explained themselves, I could see myself ceasing and trying to help them. You don't have to be cruel Elisha. If you are, you are just pushing forward this idea that the world is a cruel and dangerous place. The only way we change it is by changing ourselves," he told her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 05, 2019, 02:54:40 AM
"There are better ways, different ways. You never have to do something you don't want to do, especially if it involves hurting someone else," she said bitterly.

(It'll be fun once she's in that position and has to deal with her own morals about it lol)

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 03:03:32 AM
Elisha's logic seemed to be distanced and broken, but Giovanni just shook his head to clear it and continued forward, "How much farther do you believe?" he asked, holding Mateline's hands to his torso for a moment to keep her stable while he turned to look behind them, scanning for any pursuers.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 05, 2019, 03:07:24 AM
The conversation concerned Mateline deeply, mostly because she in the last time she had used her power on Faline. It had scared her, yes, but there was also a part of her who longed to do it again. What if it was the same with killing? She didn’t want to know. So she clutched Gio tightly and shook her head to rid the thoughts. “Not too far now I should hope.”

<**yeah I say we skip ahead **>

Several hours on horseback later and they arrived at the coast. Casiel dismounted from their mare, wanting to stretch his legs a bit. It was growing dark, the group having spent most of the day riding. "Should we find a ship now, or somewhere to spend the night then worry about that in the morning?'
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 05, 2019, 03:47:28 AM
"The way I see it, we have two options," Elisha said, dismounting the horse and giving it a gentle rub. "We can either stowaway tonight, with the dark of night providing us with cover, or we can find a place to stay and try to get on board in the early morning. With the first option, someone would have to keep watch and we probably won't get much rest, and with the second option, we run the risk of not being able to board."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 05, 2019, 03:53:28 AM
Mateline clambered inelegantly off the horse, taking a couple of careful steps back from it. “I don’t think it’s a good idea to push our luck, we need to leave soon as possible.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 05, 2019, 05:11:53 AM
Henry pulled the reigns, bringing his horse to stop as well, looking off into the distance hmrather than meeting her eyes, “this is not a trap, believe me,” Henry said, then turned his gaze back to her, “this is just...hard for me, the killing” he admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 05, 2019, 09:08:44 AM
"So we try to stowaway now? Is everyone in agreement?" Elisha asked, looking around to the boys.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 05, 2019, 09:50:56 AM
"We could stowaway, or we could remind the crew that we were supposed to be on board legally," Casiel said. He was coming to realize just how useful this power of his was, and he found himself wondering if he could expand it...
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 05, 2019, 09:52:18 AM
(oh boy what r u thinking in that head)

"Right, your ability," Elisha said. "Would you be able to do that? Convince an entire crew?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 05, 2019, 09:54:27 AM
<**heheheheheheh**>

"I'm not sure, so far I've only had to convince one person at a time," he replied. "But if I'm able to get to the captain the rest of the crew will go along with it, I'm sure."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 05:39:59 PM
"I was gonna suggest that I try to teleport us aboard, but...if you'd rather try it this way--" Giovanni said as he slid off the horse, "Then I suppose you can try." Giovanni took the reigns of both horses and then put his hands on their hands before speaking, "Go back to your masters" and then horses turned and began to trot away. He took a deep breath and turned to the others, "Animals, I have to really connect with first. Their minds wander too much."

(I suppose we have to fast forward Henry and Faline too since it's been a few hours)

Faline and her companion had made it to the port town, but she hadn't seen signs of the four they were searching for yet. She looked to Henry, pulling out a piece of jerky from her saddle bag and biting a chunk off and speaking, "Do you know where they're going to be? What boat?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 05, 2019, 05:48:27 PM
(LOL I didn't even notice that you all skipped! this is what happens when I try rping at work! :P)
"ah, well you see...I only had a vision of them IN France," Henry finally admitted, "I really have no idea what boat they will take," Henry said timidly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 05:52:06 PM
Faline stopped her horse and licked her teeth, sighing out heavily. She bit off more meat and then put it away and headed over to the docks, watching the edge carefully. If they moved, they'd move as a group. She slid off her horse and went to the next man she saw, "Is there a ship going to France?" she asked sweetly, her fingers gently touching his arm. The man swallowed and breathed out easily, "Oh um, yes Miss. That ship there, the third." Faline gave him a grin and then handed him two coins before coming back and getting her horse's bridle, "Come on Henry. Let's get a place with them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 05, 2019, 05:58:50 PM
Henry slid off his horse, raising an eye brow at her, "That was impressive," he commented
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 06:02:23 PM
"Being attractive is not a talent, just something I happen to be well aware of. It allows me to use subtle touch and movement to get my way around a lot of men. I did it to you too when you were worried about whether you were going to join us," Faline said with a whimsical smile, "It's quite fun." she then frowned a little, "It didn't work on your teleporter friend though. Made me doubt myself for a moment," she said and chuckled softly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 05, 2019, 06:07:11 PM
"You can do that to animals, too?" Casiel exclaimed, thoroughly impressed. "Well I'll be..." he mused, wandering off to investigate the docks. It didn't take long for him to pin point the ship they were seeking, and locating the captain had also been ridiculously easy (they were always weirdly flamboyant). He approached the man, swiftly grabbing his arm and implanting a false memory before he could react.

The captain stood still for a moment, stunned, before his expression brightened and he swept his arms out wide. "Ah! Casiel, Giovanni, Elisha, and Mateline, too! It's so great to see you all! I was worried we'd set off before you'd arrived!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 06:11:08 PM
Giovanni breathed out sharply as the captain said their names out loud like that and looked around, watching for movement towards them or for Henry anywhere. He wondered if they'd followed. When he surveyed and found it safe, he sighed and nodded for everyone to get on board before patting Casiel's back, "Good job."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 05, 2019, 06:12:38 PM
Henry wasn’t sure whether to be impressed or annoyed that she would manipulate him like that. He had completely fallen for it. He laughed a bit when she mentioned Gio, “From what I’ve gathered from various visions of Gio, think you may not be his type,” Henry said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 05, 2019, 06:14:14 PM
"Didn't know he'd be so loud," Casiel grumbled. The man seemed like a jolly idiot though, so altering his mind when his memories began to reform would be easy. "Hopefully this sea side venture ends on a more positive note. With less poison."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 05, 2019, 06:19:12 PM
"I thought everything was going pretty well, we found ale, had a drink, but yeah, I suppose you getting poisoned was a downside," Gio told him and chuckled. He boarded the boat with the girls and the saddle bag of food and some gold he had left and looked around.

Faline slid off her horse, transferring things from her saddle bag to a bag she held on her side and then slung her quiver and bow on her back before pulling out a cloak, covering her quiver with it and tying it around her back. She looked at Henry, "How do we get on the boat safely? Any ideas." she asked him. She then paused and turned. Giovanni. Elisha. She'd heard the captain and a wicked smile pulled at her lips. "They're here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 05, 2019, 06:22:12 PM
"I'm sure the crew will let us partake in their ale. The captain definitely seems like a drinker." Casiel did a little turn as he looked around the ship. It was definitely nicer than the last one, and bigger.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 01:50:12 AM
Mateline fidgeted nervously as they made their way onto the ship. Her stomach still aches deeply where Henry had stabbed her and she had no interest in seeing him anytime soon. Gio had been so kind to her so far, but she was scared the rest would turn on each other like Henry, so she started to retreat back into her own shell, gaze turning hard and pulling her arms around herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 01:59:39 AM
Elisha nodded at Cas. Though she enjoyed a good drink, right now was not the time; they needed their wits about them. She turned her gaze to Mateline, who seemed to be retreating into herself. “How’s your wound?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 02:01:22 AM
“It’s fine,” she replied shortly. As much as she had grown to like Elisha, she felt she had to distance herself early from them. None of this could last.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 02:34:50 AM
"If you'd like, we can go below deck and we can change your bandages when I change mine. The doctor gave me some more cloth, said it was important to change them when it's soaked through. I can help you out," Giovanni offered to Mateline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 02:54:08 AM
She grit her teeth, but her bandages felt pretty heavy and were probably soaked through already and she didn’t have any experience changing bandages. “You can just walk me through it, I’m sure I can do it myself.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:04:50 AM
Giovanni looked at her and nodded slowly, “Fine, but if you don’t mind, I will definitely need help. My bandages have to go around me the whole way since the wound is pretty big.” He told her. He then held his bag tightly as he gently reached down and took Mateline’s hand and led her below deck. He asked for directions and found a quiet corner. He pulled a jar of salve of and the bandages from his bag before setting it down in a hammock nearby. He then pulled off his tunic and started to unravel his bandages.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:23:51 AM
Mateline watched him, eyes a little wide, scandalized that she was watching a shirtless man. It wasn’t proper. As the bandages unwound, she suppressed a bit of a gasp at how it looked. She had to stop herself from reaching out to touch it. “That...doesn’t look good,” she said lamely.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:41:28 AM
(He’s supposed to be. He’s strong and very handsome. Son of Eros, remember? That’s the fun of him being attracted to men. A heartbreaker)

Giovanni looked at his wound and shrugged, “She got me good. Definitely wounded to kill.” He opened the jar of salve and then handed dipped his fingers in and carefully applied it to his wound, gritting his teeth and seething quietly. He then looked at Mateline, “May I?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:43:18 AM
She was watching him with the same wide eyed expression as before, unable to look away from his body. When he spoke, she snapped her eyes to meet his, confused. “Sorry, What?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 03:44:39 AM
Elisha stood in silence while Gio and Mateline went to fix their bandages. Finally, she turned to Cas. “You and Giovanni. There’s an ease between you two. Why?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:48:59 AM
Giovanni chuckled and lifted her chin with his not salve covered fingers, “Mateline, my fingers are already a mess. May I apply the salve to your wound so you don’t have to get messy too?” He pulled his fingers from her face and dipped his fingers back into the jar.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:52:10 AM
She blinked dumbly at him and blushed. “Oh, yes, that makes sense.” She hurriedly pulled down the top of her dress, feeling entirely too exposed, and tried to cover what she could to preserve some decency. She pulled off her bandage with her free hand, wincing as it pulled the injury. “Go ahead.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 03:53:16 AM
“Perfect,” Henry replied excitedly, “perhaps we sneak onto the boat and attack when they are all sleeeping. They would not be expecting it.” Henry said. He looked over at the boat, “first we just need a distraction,” Henry said, looking down at his hands and wondering if he had enough control of his new ability to utilize it for that purpose
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:58:58 AM
Gio smirked to himself a little as she pulled down her dress but didn’t gawk, simply taking the time to apply the salve to her and then, despite her earlier protests, he took the bandages and ripped off a section with his teeth, pulling it around her twice and tying it firmly over her wound, tucking the ends beneath. He looked at her eyes and smiled softly, “There you are. It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen that much of a woman,” he admitted, “You are certainly beautiful” He then lifted his arms, “Would you pull the bandage around me?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 04:02:58 AM
Matelines blush deepened even further at his comment and hurriedly pulled her dress back on, moving to wrap his bandages around him. When she was done, she looked up at him once more. “I’ve never seen this much of a man before,” she admitted. “I must admit it’s jarring. Are all men so...” she gestured at his chest. “Interesting?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 04:23:00 AM
Giovanni chuckled at her comment and then took her hand and gave her permission to feel his chest. He shrugged, “I tend to think so. I don’t think Cas is as...defined as I am, but the men who I attended the barracks with usually were. But not all men. Henry certainly isn’t.” He then took his tunic and held it to him as he waited for her to be done exploring, “I’ll admit to you Mateline, I don’t...” he bit his lip and then sighed, “You are never in danger with me. I wouldn’t touch you or hurt you in anyway.”

Faline pulled her cloak’s hood over the head and nodded at him and looked at the boat. She pointed to a window for the cannon’s to come out and looked at Henry, “We can fit through there and hide in the ammunitions room.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 04:44:09 AM
Henry nodded slowly as he observed the opening, “alright then,” he agreed, “do you think we will need a distraction?” He asked
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 04:51:45 AM
“What were you thinking?” Faline asked as she found some rope and took out her bow and an arrow, tying the end of the rope to her arrow.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:11:43 AM
Matelines fingers dragged over his chest gently, before she pulled away and looked up at him once more. “Why do you say that?” She asked him mildly. He was a man after all, and he had said himself that she was beautiful.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:15:02 AM
He furrowed his brow curiously, “Does that upset you Mateline?” He asked her quietly and gently held her jaw, “You seemed so timid and afraid. I just don’t want you to feel you have to be in fear.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:17:42 AM
She breathed out hard, eyes exploring his. “It’s all just so overwhelming,” she admitted. He had such a sense about him, and as much as she didn’t want to trust him, she did. “I don’t really know any of you. You could turn any moment, just like Henry.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:22:17 AM
She was afraid. That’s what it was. Giovanni engulfed her in his arms and held her closely, “I promise Mateline, nothing more will happen to you under my watch. I’m not going to turn against you,” he whispered quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:30:47 AM
Mateline let out a breath she didn’t know she had been holding and unravelled a little bit, a few tears falling from her eyes. “I never wanted any of this,” she told him. “How are you handling it so well?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:35:07 AM
Giovanni gently stroked her hair as he felt her tears dropping to his chest. He took a breath and shook his head, "I'm...putting on a brave face. I don't know what we're doing. I never thought we'd be heading back to my home or to...Greece of all goddamn places," he pulled back to look at her and continued to run his fingers over the side of her hair, "Mateline....if you don't want to be here with us, I can try to take you home."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:38:30 AM
Mateline shook her head fervently. “There’s nothing for me back home,” she told him. “I spent my whole life hiding, I can’t go back to that. I’m scared but I want to - no I need to know. Meet my father, understand myself and my powers.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 05:41:54 AM
Elisha stood in silence while Gio and Mateline went to fix their bandages. Finally, she turned to Cas. “You and Giovanni. There’s an ease between you two. Why?”
Cas gave her a confused look, unsure of what she was getting at. "You think so? I haven't noticed. I suppose we are friendly, but that's probably because we have no reason to distrust each other," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 05:42:40 AM
(Oohhhhh my brain just can't right now! I'm sorry that my rping just sucks today.)

Henry's eyes scanned the area, setting on crewmembers loading barrells onto the ship. His control over the power was minimal so Henry knew whatever he tried would have to be simple. He focused on one man pushing a barrell onto the boat; Henry simply tripped the man up with his power and watched as he lost control of the barrell and fell into the water below, followed by a number of other crewmembers behind him trying to avoid the barrell rolling towards them.


Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:44:51 AM
Giovanni nodded at her and then pulled away, packing up his things and putting them away in the bag. He looked at the entrance to below deck and sighed, "I'm tired. I'm going to rest. Would you like to share a hammock with me? Us invalids can hang out together." he teased her.

(He hasn't noticed  ::) ::) )

Faline shot her arrow at the window when the man fell into the water and smirked, "Good work Henry," she whispered and then tied the other end of the rope to a nearby post on the dock before carefully taking hold of the rope and swinging herself hand to hand across it until she climbed in the window. She then looked at Henry and waved for him to follow.

Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 06:02:53 AM
Henry stared at her then the rope, reluctant to even attempt it. Henry took hold of the rope and, very slowly, made his way across until he was through the window with her. The crew was in chaos below, which made Henry smirk; they hadn't noticed the two of them at all.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 06:04:07 AM
Casiel frowned and turned away, back to staring out at the open water. "Maybe," he replied, knowing it wasn't his place to reveal anything to her. "And speaking of Gio, I'm going to go see if he and Mateline are getting along okay," he added, leaving to head below deck.

Henry found a surprising satisfaction watching the men that had falling to the water splash around frantically. Out of pure amusement he knocked another man into the water as he tried to pull another out. Henry snickered and looked to Faline, "Why thank you," he replied proudly.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 06:32:28 AM
Faline grinned at him and then took out her long knife and cut the rope so it fell away. She then took his hand and pulled him into a dark corner of the room behind a cannon and curled up, sitting on her knees and watching the entrance to the room.

Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 06:41:39 AM
Henry sat down beside her, leaning against the wall and drawing his knees to his chest, "Should we wait until nightfall and ambush them while they sleep or wait until we reach France?"

“If we kill him while on the ship, we can toss his body overboard. But if we wait until France, we can get the others to come with us back to the England, possibly convince them to just leave the teleporter and I’ll kill him after they’re on the ship and I’ll join you on the mainland” Faline told him quietly and then moved closer to him and leaned near him as the sun set and it began to get colder.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 07:20:21 AM
(maybe my brain is not functioning cause of this relentless headache, but I don't quite understand her plan :P)

Henry frowned a bit, "I do not think they will be easily convinced to leave him behind, or to come back with us," he said, "They won't just give up without a fight I imagine," Henry said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 07:41:16 AM
Elisha shrugged and followed. Maybe Mateline would be all cleaned up by now.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 07:46:27 AM
“My idea is that we tell them that either I can kill him and we take them by force, but if they let him behind so we tell Nataliya that I killed him and come willingly, I’ll spare him,” Faline told him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 07:59:50 AM
"hmmm, that could work," Henry said, mulling it over, "and once we have them on the boat, you will kill him anyway correct?" Henry said, "he cannot be sparred; he will just come after them again. He must die"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 08:12:30 AM
Mateline wiped the tears from her eyes and smiled a little, nodding. It seemed odd to share a bed with a man, but he made her feel so safe and comfortable. His teasing made her feel almost like she had family and wasn’t alone. “I have a feeling we won’t be the only invalids for long.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 08:41:06 AM
"Of course Henry, I will finish him off," Faline said as she pulled out her knife and played with it, "That wound on his chest should have killed him. He must have found a doctor in town to fix him. The smallest girl...the one you stabbed, if she dies, you will have to explain that to Nataliya," she told him.

Giovanni eased himself into a hammock and then helped her up in beside her. They were very close, and he helped her tuck her head against his chest, above his wound. He put his arms around her and smiled softly as she remarked. He shook his head, "Not if I can help it. We just have to stay one step ahead of them." He didn't notice Casiel or Elisha coming downstairs.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 08:46:46 AM
Henry shrugged, "if her wound becomes a problem, I can heal her enough to sustain her life until we return to Nataliya," Henry said. "Perhaps I can use that as leverage as well," he suggested, "she must be in tremendous pain..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 08:50:11 AM
Faline smiled and curled up against Henry's chest, "Now you're thinking like one of us. Wake me up when we're in France," she said quietly and slid her knife back into her boot. She took her hood down from her cloak.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 09:05:19 AM
"Of course Faline," he replied, hoping she didn't notice his rapidly beating heart. It had been a long time since Henry had been so close to a woman.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 09:06:47 AM
Faline was going to close her eyes when she did in fact notice his heart beat. She looked up at him and tilted her head, "Henry, what's wrong?" She got a little closer to tease him, "Do I frighten you?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 09:15:02 AM
Henry rolled his eyes, "Yes you frighten me," he said teasingly but then sighed, "Just get some sleep; I'm just unaccustomed to beautiful woman being so close to me," he admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 09:17:56 AM
Faline smiled when he teased her, but then her face fell a little when he admitted the real issue. She genuinely blushed and looked away, "Oh." She gave a real smile for only a moment and then curled against his chest again, even daring a little closer this time, putting an arm around him so her cloak covered him as well, "It's...nice to be reminded that I'm...still a person." she whispered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 09:28:47 AM
Henry was happy to provide her with that reminder, "anytime..." he said gently, getting more comfortable with her closeness.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 09:36:48 AM
Faline looked up at him one more time and then reached up and touched his face, gently caressing his jaw with her thumb, "If....I could choose to leave this life and I could start over from scratch, perhaps I would. If I had the right person beside me. To remind me that I'm still human and not someone's weapon."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 09:47:25 AM
He sucked in a sharp breath at her touch and looked into her eyes, smiling faintly, "Well I certainly see the humanity in you. You are much more than Nataliya's weapon," he said, "maybe one day you will have a chance to leave this life behind," Henry said, though with Nataliya around it seemed rather impossible to escape.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 09:56:42 AM
Faline blinked at him a couple times, looking down and then finally deciding to rest against him. She put her legs over his lap, sitting very close to him, cloak covering them both and laid her head right on his shoulder. "Maybe one day." she whispered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 10:05:35 AM
Below deck was much darker and it took him a second for his eyes to adjust. When they did, his gaze settled upon Gio and Mateline snuggled in a hammock in the corner. He felt his breathing hitch, feeling something akin to irritation but oddly more... painful. "Hope I'm not interrupting," he muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 10:07:52 AM
Gio looked up from his rested position and blinked a few times before quietly whispering back, "She was tired and I didn't want any of these sea men just...bunking up with her. She's a small woman." he explained himself to Casiel, a little nervousness and even a touch of guilt in his chest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 10:11:03 AM
Elisha, who has already suspected something between Cas and Gio felt that this exchange confirmed it. “So you are leaning towards lovers,” she said amusedly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 10:12:03 AM
Henry leaned his head back against the wall, enjoying the comfort of another human in his arms. "I'll stay up and keep watch," he assured her; he was weary of resting and being caught by surprise. Mostly he just didn't want to face the vision awaiting him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 10:14:45 AM
Gio looked at Elisha and shook his head, "No. Mateline is like a sister to me. I would do anything to protect her. We're not..." but then he paused and realized that Elisha didn't mean him and Mateline.

Faline reached up as much as she could with just her neck, giving him a soft kiss on his jaw before putting her head back and after not too long, falling asleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 10:18:50 AM
Henry's cheeks turned a vibrate shade of red and he rubbed his jaw, unsure what to do with the feelings stirring up within. He sighed and kept an eye on the doorway as Faline slept
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 10:19:20 AM
"Not at all," Casiel said quickly, fully in denial. Sure, he had to admit Gio was handsome, and seeing him cuddled up to Mateline made Casiel feel weird but that's because it was weird, right?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 10:23:15 AM
“Like a sister? You’ve know her what, two days,” Elisha said, rolling her eyes. “In any case, you two may have a lovers quarrel in your near future.” She headed over to one of the bunks, testing out its comfort level.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 10:25:43 AM
Giovanni looked at Mateline and gently pet her hair once before looking back up at Casiel and rolling his eyes, "Glad we're...on the same page about...us..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 10:31:10 AM
The voices woke Mateline, who hadn’t been in a very deep sleep to begin with, but she chose to keep her eyes closed throughout the uncomfortable exchange. She opened her eyes a sliver to look and see exactly what was happening, not wanting to explain herself just yet.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 10:36:42 AM
Casiel glared at him. He was angry, but mostly with himself now for the things he was feeling. "There is no 'us'," he said coolly. "We're travelling companions, nothing more." Feeling there was nothing more to say he decided to leave, going topside again to get away from them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 10:40:15 AM
It was like a stab to the chest, hearing Casiel tell him that's all there was. He was sure they'd make a different connection, but now he felt like the wound on his chest had been reopened. He took a deep breath, but his skin felt hot and he felt sick. He pulled Mateline just a little closer and buried his face in her hair as he tried to just sleep and forget the interaction altogether.

<**skip!**>

The rocking of the ship had kept him up all night. That, and his emotions. His stupid, stupid emotions. He'd found his own hammock to curl up in, spending most of the night tossing and turning. He hated the ocean, he decided when another turbulent wave almost tossed him to the floor.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 10:49:45 AM
Once again, Elisha hasn’t slept well. Being around so many other demigods reminded her of what she was, and having relieved the memory of her mother dying the other dat had done a number on her. While the others were asleep, she had paced, cried, and even thrown up over the edge of the boat, but she wasn’t about to tell them that. She lay in her hammock, now wide awake, listening to see who would get up first.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 10:52:28 AM
Mateline woke up early, wrapped up in Gios arms and feeling warmer and safer than she had in a long time. She crept out of the hammock, the wound in her stomach screaming and making her feel ill. She paced the floors, trying to force herself to feel better.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 10:53:52 AM
Someone was up. The light but agitated footsteps could mean either Mateline or Cas, but she was pretty sure she knew who it was. “Mateline?” She asked, looking up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 10:57:13 AM
Giovanni woke up the moment Mateline moved and watched her get out. Once she was pacing he got up and left the bunk room to find the galley. He opened a door and saw the ammunitions room, looked around curiously, but saw nothing, so he kept moving, heading down the hall where he found it. He picked up an orange, easily peeling it and taking a big bite of two slices.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:02:06 AM
Mateline came face to face with Elisha and she had a moment of panic. She knew Elisha didn’t trust Gio and had seen them sleeping in the same bed. “Elisha,” she greeted. “Did you sleep well?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 11:06:38 AM
“Quite the opposite,” she said, sitting up carefully, cracking her neck as she stretched. “But it matters not. Why are you pacing?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:07:43 AM
She rubbed the back of her neck. “Just don’t feel good,” she told her. “Thought I might be able to think myself back to not being nauseous.” She smiled slightly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 11:09:52 AM
“Well that’s silly. You need a tonic of some sort to settle your stomach, or a bland food at the very least,” Elisha said. She climbed out of the hammock. “Shall we go find something?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:11:17 AM
Mateline nodded her assent. “Yeah that makes more sense,” she said to Elisha. “My wound is just not happy today.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 11:14:43 AM
“You should probably rebandage, after sleeping on it all night,” Elisha said. “Do you need help?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 11:19:22 AM
With everyone else up and walking around, Casiel decided it was time for him to do the same. He crawled out of the hammock, stretching hard, joints making satisfying cracks, relieving the built up tension.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:20:02 AM
“That would be very helpful,” Mateline said. “Gio had some sort of salve that he put on it last night, but it can wait until after breakfast.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 11:26:55 AM
“Well, lets go find food then,” Elisha said.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:29:11 AM
They made their way to the galley and Mateline loosened up a bit as they walked, the comfort of having friends starting to set in. Maybe they wouldn’t turn on her, she could get lucky. It had been so long since she’d been vulnerable enough to make friends.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 11:32:37 AM
When Mateline and Elisha walked into the galley, Gio set a glare on Elisha, but then looked away as he finished his orange and grabbed a small loaf of bread.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:33:44 AM
Mateline looked between the two, knowing they didn’t get along well. But that wouldn’t stop her. So she made her way over to Gio, hoping to bridge the gap. “Sleep well?” She asked, taking an orange for herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 11:36:47 AM
Giovanni smiled at her and nodded a little, "I was restless at first, but I managed to settle in. You should know," he teased as he tore off a piece of bread and ate it. He looked at Elisha and nodded to her, "Morning." he said shortly before turning back to Mateline, "How are you feeling?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 11:37:25 AM
Elisha took an orange, eyeing Gio. She hasn’t even said anything yet, no need to start the morning with hostility. “Morning to you too,” she said, trying to sound pleasant.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:40:15 AM
Mateline shrugged, biting into a slice of orange delicately. “Oh terrible,” she said casually. “And yourself?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 11:41:19 AM
Casiel had found the galley easily enough, along with the others. He noticed some of the crew giving them weird looks, obviously confused about why their captain had let four strangers on board, and he made a mental note to mess with the captain's mind some more to ensure their safety.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 11:44:55 AM
"Achey and a little tender, but...it's healing I'm sure," Giovanni was not so convinced about Mateline's wound. Hers was much deeper. "Do you need the bandage changed again?" he asked. He looked to Elisha, "There's oranges here, bread there and I think I saw porridge in the corner over some coals." He then looked up when he saw Casiel walk in the room, but immediately looked away. There was nothing more to be said to him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:48:33 AM
Mateline turned around when she saw Gio look behind her and immediately regretted it. Pain seared through her stomach and her face twisted in pain. "Elisha was going to help me change them," she replied to him, trying to push through it stubbornly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 11:50:48 AM
"Oh no problem. There's more of that salve in my bag and some more bandaging. I'm sure Elisha is totally capable of helping you," he said and then frowned as he noticed the pain on her face, "We should take you to a doctor again once we reach France."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 11:53:09 AM
She breathed deeply, unable to really contest the notion. "It would only set us back in time," she argued finally. "It'll be quicker if we wait until we reach Italy. Or Greece."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 11:56:53 AM
"But I'm not gonna let you die before you see your father and discover who you really are, understand?" Gio told her and took her hand, "You're gonna make it to Greece. Even if I have to carry you through France."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 12:03:30 PM
A small smile appeared on Mateline's face and she nodded. "Okay, deal." She bit into the orange once again. Her stomach had been throbbing since she got up and it would be more worrying if she didn't remind herself she had a hole in her body that ought not to be there.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 12:14:17 PM
Casiel was being immature and he knew it, but he felt like his pride had been bruised enough lately so he kept his distance, finding a place to sit and biting into the apple he had grabbed, watching the crew mill about.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 12:16:47 PM
Gio slipped his hand away from Mateline's and went back to eating his bread. He glanced at Casiel and rolled his eyes as he sat in a corner alone, the way he'd found him in the tavern. Giovanni tore at his bread and didn't say anything about it, keeping his eyes away from Cas.

<**man they're stubborn**>
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 12:19:36 PM
Mateline watched him as she ate, concerned. She had heard the conversation last night and she felt responsible for the rift between them. "You should talk to him," she told Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 12:24:15 PM
"There's nothing more to be said. He's right. We're just...traveling the same direction," Giovanni said, but his words had broken and gave him away. He clenched a fist and breathed in and out slowly. He then looked up at Mateline and sighed, "I need to get some air. I'm going above deck. Make sure Elisha rebandages you up tightly." he said and then mussed her hair before heading back up. He only glanced at Casiel for a moment before leaving the galley.

Faline woke up and felt warm and comfortable. She moved ever so slightly in Henry's arms before blinking her eyes open.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 12:40:05 PM
Mateline watched him go, concerned, but she didn't follow. Instead, she stood with a slight grimace and looked to Elisha. Even after eating, she didn't feel any better, instead she felt worse. "Will you help me change my bandage now?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 12:44:01 PM
Henry had kept his promise to stay awake through the night, which left him feeling exhausted. When she stirred he couldn't help but smile, "Good morning," he said pleasantly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 01:02:02 PM
Cas saw the look Gio had given him and let out a deep sigh. He felt like a dick, but it was probably for the best. He shouldn't be getting too close to anyone. When he finally finished his apple he stood and headed for the main deck in search of the captain.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 01:16:58 PM
"I know how to change a bandage," Elisha growled as Gio left. They ate the rest of their food, and then Mateline asked for help. "Yes," she said. "Let's go over there; it's partially sectioned off, so less room for any potential prying eyes." She pointed to a half wall that was up in the corner.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 01:20:20 PM
Mateline nodded and grabbed Gio's supplies, making her way over to the half wall with a grimace, the movement irritating her more than it had. When they were back there, she pulled her dress down but didn't dare touch the bandage herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 01:30:25 PM
Elisha started to undo the bandage, working gently. The amount that Mateline was flinching was a concern. Once she undid it entirely, she put it aside, working on cleaning it first. It didn't look normal though, and it was until she looked closer that she realized that there was pus. "Damn," she said. "It looks like you might have the start of an infection. I'm not a doctor, I couldn't tell you for sure... but we need to get to France so you can get properly looked at."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 01:32:53 PM
Gio was leaning over a rail, breathing in the sea air for comfort for when he saw Casiel come upstairs. He came over  to him and grabbed his arm, “You had no right to say anything to Elisha about me. I thought you were my friend and instead you took the first opportunity to betray my trust?!”

Faline looked to him and stood up, stretching and then rolling her shoulders, “Alright. Your turn to rest,” she told Henry as she went over to a window and peered out, “I don’t see land yet”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 01:35:12 PM
Mateline looked down at her, heart thumping at the news. Infections were never good, from what she had seen, they usually ended in an amputation or death. "It's just the beginning though, right? So it could get better?" Her mind started to race, trying to calculate how soon they would get to France.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 01:42:36 PM
Casiel wrenched his arm away. "I told her nothing," he snapped back. "She asked, I didn't say anything. She formed her opinions of you all on her own, but clearly both of our observations were wrong."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 01:43:45 PM
"My guess is yes," she said trying to move the skin gently to get a better look. It was like some of the things she had seen in the apothecary, but it wasn't like she had done the treatments herself. "We need something antiseptic, there must be ale or something of that sort around here." She looked around. Across the room was a small bottle of whiskey. She grabbed it and put some onto a cloth, and then pressed it to Mateline's wound. "Sorry about the sting."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 01:52:05 PM
Mateline let out a sharp cry of pain, not having expected that at all. "Do you really think this is a good idea?" she asked, starting to feel even more ill. "It might be best to just leave it be." Mateline had never been one to handle pain well, and right now was no exception.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 01:52:49 PM
Gio put his hands behind his back to corner off his anger and then swallowed, “I’m sorry. I just...” he looked away, “Youre right. You don’t have to like me. We just travel together. But lashing out at me because you were accused of something you don’t like doesn’t mean that I’m your enemy all of a sudden.” He told him, gripping his own wrist behind his back.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 01:53:47 PM
Henry nodded, too tired to argue, "maybe I'll see something useful," he muttered with his eyes already closed. "
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 01:58:09 PM
"Of course it's a good idea," Elisha said, getting some of the ointment out. Hopefully it had antiseptic properties. "You can't just leave an infection to fester, not unless you have a death wish." She finished applying the ointment and then tied the bandage around tightly. "We need to let the others know that we have to find a doctor once we land."

Once Henry was asleep, she walked over and ran her fingers through his hair before sitting down beside him and pulled out some food to eat.

“I don’t want them to worry,” she replied to Elisha, pulling her dress back up. “We can wait to tell them until we’re closer at least.” Now that she had Elisha alone, she decided to change the subject. “You and Giovanni,” She said carefully. “Why do you dislike him so much?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 02:08:47 PM
I'm trying to decide if that's really sweet or really creepy :P)

Henry's exhaustion had caught up to him; he fell into a deep sleep, not even noticing Faline's fingers running through his hair.

"Nobody ever said I don't like you," Casiel said boldly. He looked away, gritting his teeth. "And that's exactly the problem. I can't like you. Or anyone else, for that matter."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 02:19:51 PM
(She’s makin an effort to be sweet, okay!)

“What do you mean?” Giovanni asked him, relaxing his arms, his one wrist red from being gripped. He swallowed, “You don’t have to tell me I suppose”

"He irritates me," Elisha said. She sighed. "He reminds me far too much of some of the men I've killed, one in particular, actually. He was a knight, supposedly a good man, highly esteemed, loved by many, a family man, or so he portrayed." She sucked her teeth, disgust evident. "He raped his daughter, got her pregnant. To protect his own skin, he told everyone that she had been whoring it up with a low born man. She was disgraced and left for the streets, which was where I met her. She died giving birth. And he went on to live his life. I'm not saying Gio is like that, but the similarities are there. In time, maybe he'll earn my trust. But right now, I have not seen enough to prove that he is a good man."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 02:29:41 PM
Casiel sighed. "I have an entire life I don't remember, Giovanni," he told him. "I could have been married, had children. Or I could be a criminal wanted by the queen herself." He pinched the bridge of his nose. "Who ever I was before... it complies things. That's why I was alone, before." He finally looked at him, frowning. "You're hurting yourself," he said plainly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 02:41:04 PM
“You’re right. It...it does complicate things,” Gio said and then sighed out, looking at his wrist, “It’s nothing. You...don’t have to worry about me.” He told him and then felt guilty for being interested in him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 02:41:34 PM
Mateline took Elisha’s hand in her own, eyes deep with concern. “I’m sorry you had to go through that. I hope someday soon you’ll trust him the way I do.” She let go of Elisha’s hand. “We should find them. Cas and Gio I mean.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 02:52:28 PM
"Even if he is the good man you believe him to be, be careful with who you decide to put your trust in. You've only known him a short time, and you need to keep that in mind." This applied for Mateline's faith in Elisha too, but she didn't want to think about that. "We still should tell them. I know you don't want them to worry, but it's better that they know, so that it becomes a priority to get you checked."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 02:53:11 PM
"I'm sorry," Casiel murmured, now feeling awful for an entirely different reason. But it was for the best, wasn't it?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 02:55:23 PM
Mateline bit her lip and nodded slightly. “You’re right,” she admitted. She didn’t want to think about how much faith she was putting in people. That little seed of doubt grew every time Elisha mentioned those things to her, and it was far too concerning for her to focus on at the moment. So she pushed those thoughts aside and stepped back a little before heading for the deck.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:09:04 PM
“It’s fine. I came up here to think less about you. So I’m gonna go back to that,” he said and turned away and put his arms on the rail and closed his eyes.

"Come on, let's go up and see how the lovebirds are doing," Elisha said, putting the ointment and extra bandage back in the little pouch they had been in.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:17:36 PM
Mateline shot Elisha a dirty look at the lovebird comment, not wanting to make the others uncomfortable. She saw Gio first, and Cas a little ways off. She opted to go to Cas first, not wanting to deal with the hostility between him and Elisha. “Hi,” she greeted, a little lamely.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 03:19:02 PM
"Fine," Cas grumbled, about to leave to look for the captain when Mateline approached him. "Hey..." he began, rubbing the back of his head. "You, ah, you guys doing okay?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:20:48 PM
Gio rolled his eyes as he heard the girls come upstairs. He’s come here to escape and clear his head and now everything was following him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:21:10 PM
She smiled shyly, trying not to make a big deal out of the whole thing. “Uh, could be better,” she admitted. “Apparently my wound is getting infected. Elisha figures we might need to put a rush on that?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 03:36:26 PM
"We'll need to find a doctor as soon as we dock," Elisha stated. "I can keep an eye on the wound, but I'm no doctor."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:40:52 PM
Gio took a deep breath and looked behind him at Mateline and frowned. He sighed, “Let me try to take you to mainland. I could get you to care faster,” he told her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 03:42:28 PM
Mateline shook her head adamantly. “That’s too dangerous. What if Henry and that woman are there?” She couldn’t imagine how she would ever survive another run in with those two.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 03:50:15 PM
"She's right," Casiel spoke up. "We shouldn't be separated. We're much easier to take down in a group."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 03:57:25 PM
“But you need care and you need it right away,” he told her and frowned, “Mateline, I can use my voice. I can stop them if they attack you again. “
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 04:04:07 PM
“Gio, I can’t risk it,” she said in a hushed voice. “Cas is right, none of us should be separated. It should only take a couple more days before we reach France, right?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 04:16:39 PM
(boreeeeddd. No more sleep for you Henry!)

Henry slept peacefully until the visions started; then he began to mutter and move around in his sleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 04:25:24 PM
“The longer your infection stays, the more danger you’re in.” Gio reminded her. He could protect her from something on the inside like that.

Faline looked down at Henry and furrowed her brow, concerned. She didn’t want to wake him up though, afraid some of the knowledge he gained would be important.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 06, 2019, 04:27:14 PM
"I think it's Mateline's decision," Elisha said. "If she wants to get treatment when we land, then that's what we'll do."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 04:27:43 PM
Mateline gave him a sad look. She knew the kind of danger she was in. "If you got me to a doctor right now, how long do you think they'd keep me?" She could only assume it would be far too long. "And there's no guarantee they could even help me then."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 04:30:13 PM
“This is a large ship. Perhaps there is a doctor on board,” Giovanni realized and look around, “We should ask the captain.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 04:35:03 PM
She grimaced a little. It was their best option, though she wasn’t crazy about the idea of questions being asked. “Cas would have to use his power,” she said. “To make sure nobody questions where I got the wound.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 04:46:29 PM
Henry's eyes suddenly shot open and he sat up straight, breathing harshly. He looked around the small dark room in confusion, then at Faline, calming down a bit when he remembered where they were, "I just had the strangest vision," he said while rubbing his aching head.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 05:03:25 PM
"That's easy enough to do," Casiel said, crossing his arms. "People will believe anything their minds tell them. I've put some really weird memories in people's heads. This'll be easy."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:12:30 PM
Faline held his head and looked at him, anxiously “What did you see?” She asked, curious, full of wonder over his ability.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:13:06 PM
Mateline looked for the Captain. “I suppose we just go talk to him then?” She was so unaccustomed to speaking to strangers, she had spent so much of her life hiding.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 05:19:14 PM
"Yeah, I needed to 'talk' to him anyway," Cas said, finger miming the quotes. He walked along, motioning for Mateline to follow, listening for the loud, boisterous leader of the crew.

The captain had been near the wheel, chatting with his crew when they approached. "Ah, Casiel! And Matty," he greeted them brightly. "What can I do for you."

Casiel was unable to keep from smiling. It would appear that his false memory was still firmly implanted. "We need a doctor, is there one aboard the ship?"

"Why, yes," the captain began. "But whatever for?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 05:21:38 PM
Henry's vision had left him bewildered, "I...I am unsure. It was a battle I think; there were demi-gods and monsters fighting each other," he said then frowned, "They wore such strange clothes...I think it was different time," Henry revealed.

( ;) )
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:27:11 PM
[ohoohoh]

Mateline stood slightly behind Casiel, decidedly not touching her stomach. She would let Casiel do all the talking here, he was the one with the gift. It impressed her that the seemingly foolish Captain already had a nickname for her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 05:42:00 PM
<**just casually seeing 400+ years into the future no big deal :p**>

Casiel touched the man's arm again, working in a new memory. She was sparring with your crew... learning how to fight... one of them took it too far... stabbed her accidentally... When it was done he stepped back. "Oh, right, of course, how silly of me. He has a private chamber down below, second door on the left just after the galley."

"Thank you," Casiel said, turning to Mateline. "Are you okay to go on your own? Or do you need my help?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:43:52 PM
Mateline watched him nervously, not wanting to admit that she was afraid to go on her own. The last thing she wanted was to appear weak to him. “I should be okay,” she told him. “Just uh, what’s the lie I’m telling the doctor?” She said in a hushed tone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 06, 2019, 05:46:10 PM
"You were accidentally stabbed during a training accident," Casiel told her. "You sure you don't want me to come? No offense, but I feel like you're a terrible liar."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:46:18 PM
Giovanni watched as Casiel and Mateline went off to talk to the captain and left him alone with Elisha. He looked at her and then he remembered that she'd started the drama with Casiel. He hissed, "Hey, I don't know what game you're playing or what you think you know, but I appreciate if you didn't meddle."

Faline looked at him and pouted a little, "That's not very helpful. Such a far future. Who knows what that will lead from," she said and then sighed and sat back, looking Henry over, "Did you rest well?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 06, 2019, 05:48:53 PM
Mateline flushes with embarrassment. “You don’t have to come,” she said in a small voice. “But yeah, I would kind of appreciate it.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 05:49:59 PM
"That wasn't my only vision," Henry replied, a wicked smile starting to stretch across his face, "Mateline's wound seems to be infected; will be seeing the doctor aboard this ship," Henry said. To her other question he just shrugged, "No, but it was enough," he said, knowing he probably didn't look rested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:52:17 PM
"She can't die Henry. Both of us will be under Nataliya's wrath if she does. Is there anyway you could...pose as a doctor and heal her or...do it while they're sleeping?" Faline asked. She was already getting tired of being couped up here too.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 05:57:24 PM
"I can't pose as the doctor, they will recognize me," Henry said, "I suppose I could heal her while they sleep, just enough to keep her alive"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 05:59:33 PM
Faline nodded and took some food out, handing it to Henry. "I don't know how much longer I can stay in this one room. I'm so bored." she said and laid back on the floor, staring at the ceiling. "I wish I could just go out and kill the teleporter now.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 06, 2019, 06:08:56 PM
“Thanks,” henrybsaid as he took the food. As he munched on it, he watched her with amusement, “it won’t be much longer,” Henry said, “This isn’t ideal but we can’t risk being spotted by them,”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 06, 2019, 06:13:09 PM
Faline put her hands over her eyes and brought her knees up, crossing her legs, "Henry, tell me about you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 02:02:47 AM
Elisha knew what he was talking about. “I didn’t meddle, simply made an observation is all. It’s hardly my fault that you had an emotional response.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 02:33:34 AM
“About me? Well, let’s see...” Henry said, “my mother was widowed before I came along; her grief caught the attention of Apollo. Then I came along and he took off, never to see my mother again,” Henry said, sounding just a little bitter.

“I started having visions as a child. I thought I was losing my mind, which was terrifying....” Henry cut off, thinking about that time; he’d been in a bad state, “at one point I couldn’t take it any longer; i was going to kill myself,” Henry admitted. “But before I could, Apollo showed up and stopped me. Told me everything and helped me gain some control over my ability. Then, he left. I haven’t seen him since,” henry said, his mouth curled into a frown. “Part of me thinks he was only interested in me because of my ability.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 04:48:33 AM
“I’m not the one who had an emotional response,” Giovanni said and rolled his eyes and then sighed, “But he’s right....he doesn’t know who he was before. He could have a family or a wife.” He looked away, “Just...leave it alone. Please.”

Faline looked at him and frowned, “It’s awful, that feeling of not being wanted. Just a tool for others. I’m sorry that he used you that way. Is your mother still alive?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 05:12:36 AM
"Oh please, you're both emotional," Elisha said. "But fine. I won't press. You two do whatever you want, I don't care. I just don't want it affecting this rag-tag team we have."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 05:23:49 AM
"Fine, I'll go with you," Casiel sighed, leading her down below deck once again. Finding the room in question had been easy, and luckily the doctor was already there. He was a short, scrawny man with wild hair. As usual, before he could react to their presence Cas shot forward, touching his arm and using his power.

"Ah, Miss Mateline, how are you doing?" He asked her after Casiel was finished. "May I check over your injuries? You'll probably be needing a change of bandages I presume."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 05:38:26 AM
“And yet you can continue to hold some terrible grudge against me for no reason. I’ve done absolutely nothing to you and yet I’m the object of your despise,” Gio said and raised an eyebrow at her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 05:41:52 AM
“It’s not a grudge,” Elisha clarified. “You just haven’t earned my trust yet. But,” she thought about how Mateline trusted him, “perhaps we got off on the wrong foot.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 05:54:42 AM
Gio looked at her and put his hand out, “Then let’s call a truce. We are on this journey together. We need each other’s backs.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 05:59:12 AM
"Truce. We don't have to like each other, but we should cooperate," Elisha said. "Otherwise we run the risk of making ourselves too vulnerable." She shook his hand.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 06:08:08 AM
“I don’t dislike you,” Gio told her as he took his hand away and then smirked, “How did you know about me? What tipped me off? I must be getting sloppy”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 06:12:17 AM
"The gentleness, the way you watch him," Elisha said. "And... the way he watches you. It's more than camaraderie. If you don't want people to know, you should mind yourselves. That's the sort of thing you would lose your head for, if someone decided to out you. I've seen it happen." 
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 06:22:59 AM
Gio flushed a bit, knowing she was right and then swallowing when she mentioned the way Cas would look at him. He shook his head, “I think you’re mistaken about Casiel. I do not think he finds me to be anything special” he then nodded though, “I will have to keep my  distance and to be fair, I am gentle with most everyone. Notably Mateline.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 06:29:39 AM
"Yes, she has taken quite the shine to you," Elisha mused. "But no, there is something that Casiel feels. It's possible he is unaware, given the oddity that it is for a man to have romantic ties to another man. May I ask... do you seldom find men arousing, or are women an option as well?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 06:36:59 AM
Gio choked at her question and then looked at her with a quizzical eye, “My, my, you don’t seem to hold back.” He brushed a hand through his hair and shrugged, “I’ve never...found myself with a woman before. But I’ve had affairs with a few other men here and there,” he admit quietly. “It is not entirely uncommon in an all men’s barrack” he then felt his chest tighten, “Though I’d never felt...romantic about any of that. This is the first time really and it’s meaningless here.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 06:37:55 AM
Mateline looked to Casiel with a little concern, but Gio had shown no interest in her taking her dress down, so Cas ought to be the same. “I actually just changed it, but it came to my intention that the wound is infected.” She started to pull her dress down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 06:50:59 AM
My she was bold. "I'll, uh, wait outside," Casiel stammered, swiftly leaving to give Mateline some privacy.

The doctor whistled sharply upon seeing her wound. "You should have come to me much earlier. I'll need to clean out the wound again, try to flush some of the bad blood out."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 07:29:57 AM
She watched Cas leave, a little disheartened, then turned back to the doctor. “I didn’t realize it was abnormal,” she told him, sitting down so he could get to work.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 08:13:47 AM
“I’m not one much for social formalities anymore,” Elisha explained. “Interesting. Common, you say? Maybe there is more to the strange behaviour than appears.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 08:18:53 AM
"yes, my mother is still alive," Henry said, "She will probably be thinking something terrible has happened to me," he added
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 08:28:15 AM
“I didn’t say it was common. Just not...as uncommon as people think,” Gio said and shrugged, “Who knows.”

Faline looked at him and then come over to him and gently, almost too carefully, put her hand over his, “I’m sorry. I thought you were like the rest of us...”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 08:35:22 AM
“Interesting,” Elisha said. “Well, should we see how things are going below deck?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 08:36:55 AM
Henry tried to smile, "it's alright, I'm sure she will cope without me there," Henry said, "Hopefully I can return to her one day..." he said, though he had not seen a single vision of him seeing his mother again.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 08:41:07 AM
The doctor got to work removing her old bandages. "How long ago did you get this, again?" He asked her, applying a strange ointment to the wound.

Casiel leaned on the wall outside the door, eyes closed, listening to the garbled voices of the ghosts on the ship. Drowned dead, of course. Just perfect.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 08:50:21 AM
She didn’t know how to respond to that, afraid to lie but afraid to tell the truth. “Not long,” she said vaguely, not meeting his eye. “Can you do this quickly? I don’t want to keep my friend waiting.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 08:53:23 AM
Gio nodded and followed her down below. He saw Casiel there and now there felt like there was more tension. He swallowed, “How is Mateline? Is she still in there?”

Faline laced her fingers through his and nodded, “If we finished this, perhaps I can speak to Nataliya on your behalf to go see her.” She then paused, “When we finish. Not if.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 08:54:10 AM
“I thought you were seeing the doctor with her?” Elisha asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 09:03:20 AM
"She doesn't need me in there to stand around and watch," Casiel said. "Besides, she, uh... I thought she might want some privacy, you know... yeah."

"Doing it quickly means doing it sloppily," the doctor replied calmly, now wrapping new bandages. "So, no. Be patient."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 09:06:48 AM
Henry had not expected to have formed such a connection with Faline; it was surprising but it pleased him. "We will finish it," he said confidently, "I refuse to fail," he said, eyeing her as he said this; failure was not an option when they had Nataliya's wrath to think about.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 09:13:33 AM
Giovanni wasn’t sure if it was a good sign or a bad sign that Casiel was so embarrassed about being around Mateline when she was partially exposed. He smirked though, finding it amusing. “She is rather pretty. I could see why one would feel intimidated to stick around” he teased Casiel.

Faline nodded, “I have no other option.” She told him and then looked up at him and caught his eyes, nodding again more confidently.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 09:17:07 AM
Mateline flinched at the doctors movements, not looking forward to the unknown procedure. Her eyes flitted to the spirits, silently begging them to get Gio somehow, feeling safer with him.

Casiel scoffed. "It's nothing to do with that. I just didn't want to make her uncomfortable." Then, in a low voice: "Besides, if this demigod thing is real, then we may very well be related, remember?"

“She was a little tense when I was helped her but nothing too bad,” Gio said and then looked at the door, something pulling him in. He furrowed his brow and looked at Casiel, “How long has she been in there?” He asked, approaching the door.

“And that is where I exit this conversation,” Elisha said. She walked over to the door that divided Mateline and the doctor from the rest of them, knocking slightly. “Mateline? How’s it coming?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 09:30:18 AM
"Just a few minutes," Casiel replied. Why were they so worried? He was certain she could handle herself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 09:32:55 AM
(WHATTTT if the Doctor is super perv and accidentally sets off Mateline’s emotion triggered ability which kind of gets them screwed over on the boat? Well Matty at least)

Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 09:35:48 AM
[ohoho heck pls]

“Yeah, I’m uh, alright,” she called out in a strained voice. She didn’t trust this doctor one bit.

Faline loosened her hand from him and went over to the window, pulling her cloak off since it was warm now and putting her quiver and bow down inside it, tossing it in a dark corner behind some barrells. She leaned her arms on the edge of the window and looked out before frowning, “Storm ahead...”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 09:57:53 AM
Henry joined her at the window, looking out at the sea with apprehension. A storm? The mere thought made his stomach clench; he was amazed that he had not succumbed to sea sickness already like he had on the last boat. "We make it to France," he said confidently, deciding not to worry about the storm. It would simply be an inconvenience; nothing to worry about.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 10:04:47 AM
Faline looked at him for a moment, surprised that he was confident but then she recalled his ability and nodded, “Good. I just...if someone has to check the damage of the ship, they’ll inspect this room.” She reminded him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 10:11:19 AM
(LOL WHY ME? Hahahahahaha. Okay, but I warn you, my replies are slow)

The doctor patted Mateline on the shoulder. “Just so you know, you may feel some discomfort, but that is completely normal,” he said. He started to massage the pointment into her stomach, and then the surrounding areas. He continued rubbing circles larger and larger out, until his hand was brushing up against her breasts.



“Let us know if you need anything,” Elisha said. “We’re all here.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 10:14:50 AM
Henry nodded, not having thought of that, "Well, if there is damage we will find somewhere else to hide."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 10:15:23 AM
Matelines eyes flicked to the doctors hands. She was inexperienced, but she knew that when Gio had put the salve on, he hadn’t gone so far. “I...I don’t think that’s necessary,” she told him, heart picking up from the stress.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 10:23:41 AM
(It was your idea!!)

Faline looked at Henry, lost for a moment while she thought and then looking towards the door, “Tonight, when the crew is resting, I’ll help you sneak out to heal Mateline. We can’t get caught. There’s no where for us to run if we’re caught by your friends or by the crew.”

Gio grew tense as Mateline got quiet again and looked at Elisha, “I don’t like this. We don’t know that man and she’s small...”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 10:27:27 AM
Henry nodded in agreement, "Alright. Maybe, I can use my visions to keep us from being seen," Henry suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 10:34:49 AM
“I mean, I could kill enough of the crew to keep us out of trouble, but I feel you may have an aversion to that,” Faline teased him as she turned back to watch out the window.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 10:44:03 AM
Henry rolled his eyes, "If it comes to that, I give you full reigns to deal with the situation as you please. But if we can do this without taking lives, I think that would be a better option," he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 10:50:03 AM
“Awww. You’re so precious and innocent,” she said and played with her hair, “You’ll have to loosen up a little if you stay with Nataliya.”

[im bored sooo...sorry mara lol]

When the doctor still didn’t stop, she started to panic even more and she could feel the heat in her hands, all of her powers becoming more focussed. She grabbed his arm, still not quite confident enough to be aggressive. “You need to stop that,” she told him in a low voice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 11:18:49 AM
"If we leave a trail of bodies on the ship, we're going to be found eventually," Henry said, "I'm thinking ahead," he said defensively
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

“I told you. We throw the bodies out the window,” Faline teases him more and turned, pushing his shoulder, chuckling.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 11:40:29 AM
(Ouu a doctor scared of fire. Fun)

The doctor was enjoying the rubbing until she grabbed him. Then the strangest thing happened. His hand started to burn - literally burn. He could smell the flesh. And it reminded him of the time his home burned down as a child. Everyone had escaped of course, but the fire... the fire was terrifying. He pulled back, staring at him. “Witch...” he hissed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 11:42:43 AM
As soon as she was free of him, Mateline stumbled away, hurriedly pulling her dress up over her still uncovered wound. “No-no...I-I’m not a witch,” she said, heart thumping. She hadn’t meant to do it, but she could see the burn marks on him. “I just wanted you to stop,” she said, voice rising. She was getting more and more worked up, she felt like crying and she could still feel her hands burning dangerously.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 11:46:26 AM
Henry knew it wasn't funny and he should be disturbed but he was smiling, "yeah yeah," Henry said, "very funny...of course you're probably not joking," he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 11:49:04 AM
“If not a witch, then the demon sent from hell,” he spat. He went for his knife, prepared to send the being from where it came.



Elisha heard thumping from inside. She knocked again. “Mateline?” She glanced at Gio and Cas nervously.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 11:51:13 AM
At the sound of her friends voice, she remembered she had friends out there that could help. “Help!” She cried out, seeing the knife in his hand. Shaking, she reached out and placed her burning hands on his face, tears running down her own.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 11:58:23 AM
Faline raised an eyebrow at him but then quickly was behind him in a flash and pushed him towards the window, swiping his feet and holding his arms, leaning his head and shoulder pretty much completely out, “See. I don’t even have to kill you.”

Gio heard commotion and immediately responded, opening the door and pushing inside. He saw Mateline, immediately pulling her off the doctor, holding her arms down and against his chest. He then saw the doctor with the burns. He looked between them and then glared at the doctor, “What did you do?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 12:01:54 PM
“I was treating a patient,” the doctor explained hastily. “But she is a monster! A witch! She should burn before she infects us all!” He swung his wrist clumsily in an attempt to get Mateline.

Elisha caught his wrist and twisted it, aggravating the burns more, causing him to drop the knife. “I’m sure there’s more to the story,” she snarled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 12:05:32 PM
Mateline started to cry as soon as Gios arms were around her. “He wasn’t doing his job! He was touching me in improper ways, I was just trying to stop him! I didn’t mean to, it just happened!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 12:05:59 PM
Henry was completely caught off guard; he stared out the window at the water below and felt that familiar sickly feeling in the pit of his stomach, "FALINE!" he said unhappily
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 12:22:20 PM
Casiel just let out a deep, unimpressed sigh. He grabbed the doctor, reworking his memories, burying the old and replacing with new. "Don't know how long this'll last, he's pretty shaken up."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 12:26:17 PM
Giovanni continued to hold Mateline in his arms and continued to watch the doctor carefully ““Are you alright dear?” He asked quietly and stroked her hair, “I’m sorry he touched you. What can I do?” Figuring Casiel could handle it the doctor.

Faline put her hand over his mouth suddenly and shushed him suddenly, “Do you want us to get caught. I’m just playing with you” he said and pulled Henry up and then slowly let him go.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 12:28:57 PM
Henry slid to the down, glaring at her, "Sorry, I...don't like heights," he muttered, feeling foolish for overreacting.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 12:30:56 PM
Matelines eyes flitted to Casiel, who was clearly unimpressed. He didn’t seem to like her, and she had to admit it hurt a little. But it was for good reason. She was clearly a danger to them all, there was no way to hide what she had done to the doctor. She was unhinged. “Just don’t leave me alone,” she asked of Gio, though she knew it was selfish of her to ask.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 12:37:20 PM
Faline looked at him and tilted her head slightly, “I’ll remember that,” she said and then a smile grew on her face before she began to pace around the room like an animal in a cage. She wouldn’t stand being in here in one room for much longer.

“No. We’re gonna stick together,” Gio told her and started to walk her out of the room. “Come on. Let me help you,” he said and helped her out. He then brought her around the corner and made her sit down, “What happened? More specifically, what did you do to him. You don’t have to tell me about what he did.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 12:45:03 PM
Henry watched her carefully as she paced with that unsettling smile, "Once night falls you're get out of here for a bit. Just hang in there," he told her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 12:48:35 PM
Mateline tried to pull herself together, staring at him. “It was just instincts. I grabbed his arm to stop him and I guess my powers kicked in on their own. He’s right, I am a monster. My powers are terrible, Gio. I made him see his worst fears, live them out. And I burnt right into his skin.” She was getting worked up, holding her hands close to her in fear of losing control again.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 12:51:35 PM
The doctor was confused now, and so he slumped back into the bed he used for patients.



“Let’s go,” Elisha said to Cas. She wanted to get out of there before their presence triggered any memories in the doctor.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 12:59:43 PM
Gio took her wrists in his hands and held them, keeping her from touching herself or him. He looked at her and shook her head, “Youre not a monster. You think I haven’t hurt anyone with my abilities? Please. We all make mistakes and he’s wrong. He hurt you. He touched you and he deserved it.”

Faline looked at him and smiled genuinely. She came over to him and just placed a hand on his shoulder to mess with his head before walking past him and sliding it ever so slowly off of him to go to her things to look over how much she had left.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 01:07:55 PM
"Good idea," Cas replied, leaving the room. "Hopefully the doctor's memories won't come back anytime soon. We can't kill him as long as we're on this ship," he said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:08:27 PM
“I don’t think the others will agree,” she told him sadly, trying to calm the shaking in her hands. “I think Casiel might hate me for it,” she whispered to him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 01:13:20 PM
“Casiel will deal with me then. You will not be displaced from our group because of this. He assaulted you. You were only reacting in self defense. Don’t you fear,” he told her and gently released her wrists
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:15:46 PM
Her hands fell into her lap, cold as ice now. “What are we to do, though?” She asked, feeling a wave of exhaustion. “How do we hide that it happened?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

"I make no promises," Elisha said, walking quickly. "Men like that... they deserve to die. Or, at the very least, have their hands cut from their body, leaving only bloody stumps behind. Though, that would be being kind." The kind of behaviour that doctor had shown had made her angry, especially because she had now realized she was protective over Mateline. She headed over to where Gio had Mateline. She squatted down in front of Mateline. "Did he hurt you?" she asked quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:23:09 PM
Mateline looked up at Elisha, and mutely shook her head. “He barely managed to touch me,” she admitted. “I’m just shaken.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 01:23:45 PM
"I promise he'll never touch you again," Elisha said. "He won't get the chance."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:25:35 PM
She breathed out deeply. “I’m sorry,” she blurted our. “I didn’t mean to react the way I did. And now I’m screwed us all.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 01:32:09 PM
Faline sorted through and then got up and took her knife out and then took the dagger out of her tunic and handed it to Henry, “Fight me. I will only defend, no attacks”

Gio sat back and watched her, worried, “I told Casiel that you shouldn’t have been left alone”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 01:34:27 PM
"And I thought she could handle herself," Casiel retorted, annoyed. "Don't blame me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:36:54 PM
Mateline winced a little. “I’m sorry,” she repeated, voice breaking. “It’s all my fault. This is all my fault. Don’t blame Casiel, he’s right.” She should have handled herself better.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 01:39:22 PM
Henry stared at the dagger then looked up at her with a frown, "I hope you know I have no idea what to do with this thing," he said while getting to his feet. he had to admit, the dagger felt natural in his hand.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 01:40:58 PM
"Shut up, both of you," Elisha snapped. "Hey," she pulled up the shoulder of Mateline's dress a little, seeing it slightly out of place. "You did nothing wrong. You defended yourself, kept yourself safe when nobody else was there to help you in that moment. You did good."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 01:46:11 PM
“No. I will blame you. I let her go with you instead of letting me take her to a doctor on the mainland. You said this was the better option,” Gio said, suddenly getting frustrated, “I trusted you. You, Casiel. And now we’re in bigger trouble than we started.” He said harshly.

Faline put both hands behind her back and tilted her head, waiting for him to attack.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 01:48:53 PM
Mateline whimpered a little, trying not to cry once again. She had driven a wedge between them, it was her fault. She tried to stand, noticing that the visit to the doctor hadn’t even stopped the pain in her wound. She collapsed back down. “Stop it, both of you!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 01:51:46 PM
Henry was not a fighter; he was a healer and an oracle. He made a pathetic move at Faline, not expecting to be very successful; she had been trained into a kill from a child.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 01:52:53 PM
"Well maybe you need to stop putting so much trust in me then, huh?" Casiel snapped, ignoring Mateline. "Oh, I trusted you, so now I can blame you when things go wrong. That's how it works, isn't it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 01:58:02 PM
Elisha looked around to make sure nobody was coming, and when she was sure the coast was clear she exhaled slightly in Cas's direction, and then in Gio's direction. What would have been nothing had a normal person been doing it ended up being a gust of air in both of their directions, strong enough to knock them back ever so slightly. She reached out a hand to Mateline, wanting to help her stand, before addressing the boys again. "If the two of you want to have a marital squabble, then go for it," she said coolly. "But I suggest we get our ally here some help first, and then figure out what our next steps are going to be."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 01:59:57 PM
Faline leaned out of the way very easily and just raised an eyebrow at him with a smirk.

Gio silenced himself and looked away. He took a breath and then started to step away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 02:10:58 PM
Ally, Casiel snorted to himself. Maybe he'd been stupid; maybe he should just head to Greece on his own. "You can take her to the main land, or whatever it is that you wanted to do earlier," he grumbled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 02:15:02 PM
As much as she understood his despise of her, Cas’ remark still cut deep and she flinched a little, face hardening slightly. “Maybe you ought to just leave me there.” It was more a test than a true suggestion, she knew she couldn’t stomach being left alone. Not after finding people who felt like they could be family.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 02:15:48 PM
“It’s too late now. There’s too much damage control to do here to make sure we’re not found out,” Gio said quietly and then looked over at Casiel and swallowed. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped. I’m just worried.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 02:18:32 PM
"Yeah, yeah," Casiel muttered. "So what do we do? Kill the bastard? Or..." Then his eyes lit up. "Or make him kill himself, in front of the crew," he said, eyeing Gio with a wicked gleam in his eyes.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 02:18:42 PM
Henry stumbled forward, his face clouding over with embarrassment. He turned around and breathed on in frustration then lunged again; this time he cheated and used his power to trip knock her feet from under her, then he was on top of her with the dagger to her throat.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 02:21:41 PM
"I like that," Elisha said in reply to Casiel's idea. "It would tie up any loose ends."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 02:24:40 PM
Mateline presses her lips together, frowning quite a bit. Yes the man was scum, but it felt wrong to take control of his life like that - his death really. Still, she couldn’t say no, it was their only viable option. She would jus have to take responsibility for his death. “I suppose we must.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 02:26:45 PM
Elisha noticed Mateline's discomfort. "Alternatively, I can kill him and make it look like he hung himself, though I still think Gio is the best option here, given the influence he can have over a person." she suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 02:32:22 PM
She turned a guilty stare on Gio. “Can you do it?” She asked him. She hated that was asking him to kill for her. It felt wrong, and in her heart she hoped he would say no.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 02:50:58 PM
Gio stepped away from him and shook his head, “I won’t use my ability in that way. It’s cruel and while I think he should be punished, the burns on his face and his arms may be enough. We can explain the captain and tell him she threw a chemical on him. An acid salve.”

Faline was certainly caught off guard and swallowed, looking up at him, her breath caught in her throat this time. She stared up at him and held herself up on just her elbows. Then her eyes slowly changed. She admired him. He used him ability. Got her down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 02:52:43 PM
"And have her punished?" Elisha asked. "The captain likely won't care. Maybe he'll scold the doctor, to make a point, but what fate do you think will fall onto Mateline? This is not a woman's world; we are nothing but an inconvenience to be dealt with if required."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 02:55:31 PM
Elisha was right, it wouldn’t go over well. “I’ll do it,” she said in a small voice. “I’ll finish what I started. Just leave him to me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 02:59:50 PM
Henry grinned as he looked down at her, his hand unwavering as he held the dagger at her throat, "How was that?" he asked, feeling rather proud of himself. Sure, he had an advantage that she did not but why not use it?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 03:01:19 PM
"Mateline, you're not a killer," Elisha said. It wasn't meant in a condescending way, more of a factual observation. "I can get it done, if that's what we want to do. Some practice would do me good."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 03:02:43 PM
“I’m the one who got us into this mess,” Mateline explained in a deliberately calm voice, trying to force herself to feel it. “It should be my responsibility to fix it.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 03:06:11 PM
"Except the crew will then know that someone else did it. Unless you plan on making it look like a suicide," Casiel spoke up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 03:11:36 PM
"Well that's why I suggested making it look like a hanging," Elisha said. It was almost funny, how casual this conversation of murder had become. Maybe Cas was more like her than she had initially realized.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 03:13:11 PM
Mateline pursed her lips. They had her there. She really was no killer, the idea turned her stomach, and she doubted with her current skill set that she could make it look like a suicide. “Ok, maybe we can just avoid death altogether? Somehow?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Faline looked up at him and nodded, “I’m very proud,” she said carefully and then swallowed as she felt his knife graze her throat while she talked. A little cut found itself there and minimally bled. She put a hand up and touched his cheek, “If you don’t removed that knife from my throat, I will kill you right now”

“No. It’ll be bad for all of us. I don’t think this is the right thing to do. Please. We don’t have to kill anyone,” He begged.

All Mateline wanted to do was hug Gio in that moment, the others seemed so cutthroat. He was truly far more like her than the others. “Tell me you’ve got another plan,” she said hopefully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 07, 2019, 03:39:39 PM
"Haven't you killed people before? Being a knight and all," Casiel asked him, raising an eyebrow. "But fine, no killing. Any other ideas? Since mine are no good, apparently."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 03:42:05 PM
“I might be able to make him go mad,” Mateline offered. “If I had enough time with him that is.” She had never done it before in practice, but with her unique power, she supposed it wouldn’t be too difficult.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 03:42:27 PM
Henry pulled the dagger away hastily when he drew blood. He gently placed his hand on her throat, healing the small cut, "I am so sorry," he said as he got off of her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 03:54:31 PM
Gio looked at the others and then nodded, “Making him go mad would be be fine with me. And it’s not that I have killed anyone. If that if we kill him and are found out, we will be thrown in the brig or tied to the mast. I have no desire to become a criminal”

Faline’s immediate reaction to his hand on her throat as to block him, but then she remembered he could heal and allowed it. She then sat up after he got off of her and when his face was turned away, she blushed a little and felt goosebumps on her arms from the way he’d been on top.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 03:59:44 PM
Mateline forced herself to stand a little taller, have more authority. “Let’s get this over with, then,” she said as firmly as she could. The idea of what she was about to do made her sick to her stomach. “Can someone come with me to make sure nothing goes wrong?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 04:05:26 PM
Gio looked at Casiel for a long moment and then Elisha. “I’ll go with you to make sure he sits still,” Gio told her and then touched her shoulder confidently, “You can do this.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 04:06:33 PM
Elisha glanced at Cas. "I guess our opinion is unpopular," she muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 04:07:39 PM
Mateline gave a short nod. “You can come in too, if you’d like,” she offered Elisha and Cas. She wasn’t sure how much they disliked her power. Elisha at least seemed to approve. She made her way for the room resolutely.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 04:09:32 PM
Henry turned back towards her, just catching her rosy coloured cheeks, "Shall we continue?" he dared to ask, "perhaps you could teach me a few things?" he asked
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 04:20:20 PM
Faline looked at him and nodded before presenting her knife, “Never. Ever. Let your guard down. Friend or enemy.” She nodded, “Put your knife up. I’m not gonna go easy. I will actually cut you you can heal yourself,” she said and then began to swipe at him, small breaths escaping her mouth as she thrusted towards him.

Gio looked at the other two and then nodded towards the doctors room.

"I think I'd better 'talk' to the captain," Casiel said. "The last thing we need is for his memories to fix themselves."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 04:30:42 PM
"got it, I think," Henry muttered as she attacked. He did his best to block her swipe with his own knife, though he underestimated her strength. She managed to slice his arm, which was painful but he ignored it and lunged at her
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 04:36:58 PM
[haha ok one more before I sleep]

Mateline stepped into the room and before the doctor had a moment to speak or react, she reached out and gripped his arms in her hands tightly and forced him to immediately start living out his fears. She led them to sit down and she glanced quickly at Gio. “This could take a while.” She was pulled into the images the doctor was seeing and her eyes fluttered closed, hands gripping the mans arms in a vice like grip.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 07, 2019, 04:40:16 PM
Elisha followed Mateline and Gio. She watched, impressed by Mateline’s control over her ability.

Fire. Fire everywhere. That was all the doctor could see. The boat was on fire and when he saw himself run up on deck to jump, he found the fire on water too. He let out a wailing scream of terror
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 04:46:36 PM
Once Faline got a cut on him, she smirked a little wickedly and then seethed as he got her side. She turned the knife around in her hand and ducked lower, aiming for his legs and his thighs before coming back up and attempting to get his chest, her mind starting to fog over that it was just a practice.

Gio closed the door behind Elisha and just watched for a while as Mateline worked. But then he looked away, afraid himself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 04:55:03 PM
Henry was clumsy at first which cost him a few more cuts but then it was like something ignited in him, an almost innate ability to wield his weapon. Henry attacked as if he had been training all his life.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 05:12:36 PM
He was learning quickly and she was very proud, though she figured it wasn't really anything she was doing. Faline wasn't about to be beat though. After he managed to catch her a few more times, she was finished with letting him get the upper hand. She cut the side of his wrist on the hand holding the dagger and then kicked up with her knee, disarming him and holding both the dagger and the long knife, she swept her foot to the back of his knees and then presented both knives to his throat as he sat on his knees in front of her. She looked down at her and her brow furrowed in, "Surrender." she told him, voice cold.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 05:27:56 PM
It happened all too fast for him to react; not amount of natural ability could help when faced with someone as skilled and determined as her. He stared up at her from his position on the ground, surprised and a little fearful; that glint in her eyes and cold voice sent shivers down his spine, "I surrender," he said reluctantly
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 05:31:43 PM
Faline looked down at him and as he surrendered, she took deep breaths and then looked at him, afraid of her, again. She stopped, expression changing to one of confusion and dropped both knives, letting them clatter to the ground and then stepping away, wiping some blood off her face from a cut on her jaw and going to sit in the corner. She brought her knees to her chest and buried her head in them, her hands up behind her neck, just breathing deeply. She'd lost control. She could have killed him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 05:40:59 PM
this girl has some serious issues :P)

Henry watched her cross the small room to the corner and released a long breath that he'd been holding back. The memory of her blades pressed to his throat and the coldness in her voice unsettled him but seeing her so broken and upset was enough to compel him to her. Henry got to his feet and cautiously knelt in front of her, "May I?" he asked softly, looking at one of her deeper cuts.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 07, 2019, 05:44:45 PM
(Well, yeah...That's the point XD )

Faline shook her head at first, not even wanting to look up at him for a few moments before she realized that her wounds were beginning to sting and blood beginning to clot and scab. She then took a deep breath and let her hands down, opening herself up a bit and looking up at him, nodding "Thank you." she said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 07, 2019, 05:54:27 PM
Henry merely nodded and placed his hands on the cut on her side, letting his healing power flow into her until the cut vanished entirely. He continued, healing the small cuts then finished with her jaw. He gently removed his hand and sat down before her, feeling tired again. His own injuries continued to bleed; he had failed to mention that his power only worked on others. Henry had never been able to heal himself. It was something he probably should have told her before they squared off, but he hadn’t wanted her to take it easy on him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 07, 2019, 11:12:49 PM
He was resisting a lot, it made controlling him harder. Still, she gripped the doctor harder and forced the visions to continue. She sat there for she didn’t know how long until she was confident even she herself might go mad if she stayed any longer and she opened her eyes, dropping his wrists like they were burning again (thank god they weren’t). The exhaustion crashed over her like a wave, she had never done anything like that and it had taken far too much of her energy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 01:08:58 AM
“The Sea is on fire,” the doctor muttered, staring around the room but seemingly not noticing Mateline, Gio, or Elisha. “I must warn the others!” He jumped forward and bounded for the door, flinging it open and running down the hall.

Elisha moved towards Mateline slowly, not wanting to touch her yet in case her power was still active. “Well done,” she praised. “Are you alright?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 01:46:47 AM
Gio caught Mateline, afraid she would fall with how tired so suddenly looked. He frowned and swallowed, watching the doctor run off, "We need to leave this room immediately so none of this is led back to us," he told the girls.

Faline allowed him to heal her, once again flinching when he was near her face. She was quiet but thankful for his ability. She looked him over while he did his work and then sighed out as she realized, "You don't heal." When he was done, she shook her head and got up. She carefully and slowly went to the galley, and asked for a bowl of hot water. She then grabbed a clean rag from there as well, not getting questioned, as the crew assumed she was just with the group the captain had randomly let aboard. She carefully came back to the ammunitions room and sat beside Henry, dipping the rag in the hot water before starting to carefully dab at his cuts.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 02:29:55 AM
Henry winced as she dabbed the cuts, “thank you,” he said through gritted teeth. “I...didn’t want you to take it easy on me,” Henry said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 02:46:50 AM
"You're lucky I held back. I considered seriously giving you a few gashes here and there, thinking you could heal them," she told him and pressed carefully against his neck, finding a knick on the side of it. She sighed and motioned, "Lift your tunic. I know I got you a few times on the side."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 02:51:40 AM
Yeah, I realized he mentioned earlier that he couldn’t heal himself AFTER they decided to fight. That could have been bad :p)

Henry carefully lifted his tunic, revealing a rather nasty cut. “I should have mentioned it. But...I wanted it to be like a real fight; I need to learn, properly” henrybsaid, “the others won’t be taking it easy; they’ll be aiming to kill”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 02:55:50 AM
Faline saw the large cut and a little color drained from her face, but she tried to keep her expression even as she wiped away the blood and then tore off a piece of her own tunic on the bottom with her knife. She dipped in the water, rung it out and then held it to his wound, waiting until it stuck there and then moved over him, carefully pushing him to lay down, "We can't have you getting infected." she told him carefully, her eyes still on the spot where she wounded him, her own hand pressed to it tightly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 03:00:45 AM
Henry lay down as instructed, grimacing as she held the cloth to his wound. “It’s really not that bad,” he tried to assure her
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 03:02:50 AM
Faline rolled her eyes at him and then pulled her hand away. She brought her cloak over and covered him with it before laying down beside him, looking at the door for a moment, nervous someone would come in, but then looked at Henry, "Rest. I'll watch." she said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 03:06:55 AM
“Agreed,” Elisha said. “We should get Mateline here back to the sleeping quarters.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 03:13:10 AM
Henry suddenly felt weariness wash over him; and a slight pain. He looked over at faline, smiling thankfully before closing his eyes. Maybe he would not be troubled by visions this time
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 03:18:48 AM
Faline put her arm over him and watched him drift off, smiling back before turning her attention to the door and watching it, but after a while, she too fell asleep.

Gio nodded and helped her over to the hammocks and lifted Mateline up into one, watching her and frowning, "How's your wound?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 03:32:19 AM
With the captain's memories reworked, Cas decided to remain on the deck, leaning against the railing, staring out into the water. Truthfully he was scared of it, of the vast, black emptiness that was the ocean. If he tried to remember anything from his life before all he saw and felt was that crushing void. He shuddered softly, rubbing his head. This, plus everything he was feeling in regards to Giovanni, was giving him a major headache.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 03:44:54 AM
"Elisha you should get some rest too," Giovanni told her and then looked around, "I'm gonna go find Casiel." He headed to the galley, checking there first, then to a few of the other rooms before heading up on deck where he saw him. Giovanni took a deep breath and then slowly approached him, "That's a storm on the horizon." he called, standing behind him a few feet, "Hopefully we make it to France before that."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:04:30 AM
Casiel looked up, seeing the dark clouds looming in the distance. "Hopefully," he murmured. "I'd hate to get thrown overboard again."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:06:47 AM
Giovanni came over and stood beside him, eyes on the storm ahead, "I'm...I'm sorry for everything today. And it wasn't your fault with the doctor. I should have volunteered to go with her in the first place. You were uncomfortable and shouldn't have been put in that position."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:12:21 AM
Cas sighed and shook his head. "Don't be sorry. I shouldn't have just assumed that everyone can take care of themselves," he said softly, now drumming his fingers along the railing.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:17:07 AM
"That's a little..." Gio chuckled slightly and then looked at Casiel, "She's young and...she did take care of herself. She burned his arms and face." he reminded him, "You were very quick to suggest I use my powers to kill that man. You want to tell me why?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:22:33 AM
Casiel shrugged. "It just made sense, given our situation. I figured him ending his own life would ensure that nobody suspected anything," he replied, finally looking up at Gio. "I didn't realize you'd be so against it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:29:35 AM
"If we weren't going to be stuck on this boat for another day, then maybe I would have allowed it, though I don't prefer to use my power that way," Giovanni told him. He looked at Casiel and frowned a bit, "Why didn't you take Nataliya's offer?" he asked him suddenly, "She knows who you were. You could have found out."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:43:41 AM
"She was going to kill you," Casiel said flatly. "And as much as I'd love to know who I am, I couldn't let that happen. Besides," he turned away, back to watching the storm building on the horizon. "She was probably lying."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:03:35 AM
Giovanni put his hand out to touch Casiel's back reassuringly but then remembered Elisha. His gentleness would give him away. He pulled his hand back and turned away, leaning against the rail with his back and crossing his arms, "What if that assassin knows? She said she was Nataliya's number two. I'm sure information like that has been shared. If we catch her...I can make her talk."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:06:36 AM
If they hurt her, Henry will probably be very angry :p)

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:19:17 AM
<**awww he's in luuuuuurve**>

Casiel looked back at him, noting the awkward tension between them and bit his lip. He felt like they should talk about things, but then again what was there to discuss? He didn't even know how to work through his own feelings. "I doubt we'd be able to get her without a fight," he said finally.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:26:58 AM
(Awww, how awful for him. She's CRAZY. Aww, like Nathaniel and Norah)

Giovanni raised an eyebrow as he watched Casiel think over things. The way he bit his lip and his eyes searching over the place. It made Gio's heart patter just a little faster. He looked away though and then rolled his head on his neck, "I think with four of us, we could manage to get at least into a position where I could make her stay still and talk. She did not like whatever you did to her head though. Her words were all messed up."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:38:48 AM
Casiel actually smirked, rather proud of himself for that. "I think she dislike what you did even more," he said softly. "She was really determined to kill you. Said that she'd make me watch as she skinned you bathed in your blood, or something twisted like that," he shuddered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:41:04 AM
"God am I so obvious that even she thought that hurting me would get to you?" Giovanni said and rolled his eyes. He then shook his head, breathing in and out before wiping a hand over his face. "I um..." he flushed and shook his head, "I'm going to make sure the girls actually go to sleep. You should get some rest too." he told him and start towards the stairs.

(Tbh, I just wanna get to France so we get finally get to a face off XD)

Mateline was absolutely exhausted, but she found no ability to sleep. The reality of what she had just done was setting in and all she wanted was to take everything back. Her wound still hurt, sitting uncovered under her dress. Not that she deserved any kind of medical attention. Every time she closed her eyes she just saw what she made the doctor see.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 05:48:38 AM
"You did the right thing," Elisha said to Mateline. "The first time you do something to someone, it's hard. But then... you get used to it. It gets better in time, easier, when it's done for the right reasons."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:48:56 AM
<**I want them to get to France too :p maybe we'll skip ahead soon? :p (although I am a bit reluctant to reveal Casiel's past so soon. It's gonna be a wee bit of a doozy lol)**>

"We've only been awake a few hours," Casiel pointed out to him. Then he let out a heavy sigh. "Gio, wait," he called, reaching out to grab his arm. "We... we need to talk. About... this. Us. I don't know. Something," he rambled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:51:30 AM
(Haha, Faline doesn't know it XD I just want them to get in a big fight)

Giovanni pulled his arm away fairly easy and turned around, "You made it fairly clear last night that there is no 'us'." he told him and crossed his arms, "And you made it even clearer this morning that...you don't want there to be because we don't know who you were."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 05:52:11 AM
Mateline met Elishas eyes, the feeling of being haunted more overwhelming than being haunted by the actual spirits around her. “I don’t want it to get better,” she said. “I don’t want it to be normal for me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 06:01:32 AM
"Well," Elisha said. "You didn't kill him. In time, his mind can heal, and it would be like you did nothing at all." She was terrible at trying to comfort people.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 06:05:48 AM
Casiel frowned, lowering his gaze. "That's true, but..." He paused, chewing on the inside of his cheek, thinking through his next words carefully. "There's serious tension between us, and I know you feel it too. If we're going on this journey together we need to deal with it. And we... we can't let someone like that assassin use us to get to each other."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 06:10:01 AM
"Then just stop caring," Giovanni told him, fighting back in the warmth in his eyes. He turned his chin up and swallowed roughly, "This is more than just...the assassin. Casiel, people are hanged and worse for this kind of thing. The captain of this boat would be much more upset to discover two men were talking about their emotions  about each other on his deck than the fact that his doctor assaulted Mateline earlier." He shook his head, "I shouldn't have said anything to you. I shouldn't....have approached you in that tavern." Gio looked down at Casiel, a hint of wet in his eyes, "The tension will pass..." he murmured.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 06:14:28 AM
“Or his mind never heals,” she muttered bitterly. “You don’t- you didn’t see what I did, Elisha. I don’t know how to come back from it. From subjecting someone to that. It felt cruel.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 06:18:49 AM
"No, I don't know what you saw, this is true," she said. "But there is coming back from it. There are far worse things to do out there."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 06:19:47 AM
Mateline worried her lip, now staring at the ceiling. “I appreciate the comfort,” she finally said after a long pause. “But it won’t help me sleep.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 06:28:32 AM
"I'm glad you approached me," Casiel told him. "As scared and frustrated that I was at you for outing me, and as treacherous as this journey has been so far, I doubt I'd be doing anything other than untangling fishing nets for the rest of my life if it hadn't been for you." He turned away, crossing his arms. "At least, even if I don't find out who I am I'm actually living a life that's worth something."

Giovanni nodded, "Alright then." he told him and then headed below deck.

(SKIP TO....)

Faline put her quiver and her bow back on her and tied her cloak around her neck again, looking at Henry and smiling just a bit. They'd arrived in France and now, here at the docks, they'd finally catch their prey.

Giovanni held his head as they stood, waiting to get off the boat. It was had been too long cooped up on this ship and the tension didn't pass at all with Casiel, if anything, it was getting worse now that they'd admitted it was there.

(Dang it, I already had this typed up. Fine. We shall wait then.)

Im here!!!)


Henry had been sleeping peacefully for quite a while; he had a content smile on his face. Something must have made him stir though; perhaps the boat docking. His eyes fluttered open and he caught Faline looking over at him, "Are we there?" he asked softly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 07:21:45 AM
Faline nodded. She was a bit restless after all, being so cooped up. The practice with Henry had been good and helped her keep sanity but she just wanted to do her job now. "So here's the plan. We grab the teleporter, make our deal, the three others come with us back to Nataliya, we heal the girl with you stabbed and we tell them we leave the teleporter, but then I kill him once you four are on a boat. I join you shortly afterward."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 07:23:12 AM
Casiel was pacing, as he normally did when he was agitated. He couldn't wait to be off of this accursed ship, back on land, away from the ocean and the tension between himself and Gio, as if walking away physically would help him forget.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 07:25:51 AM
Henry nodded as she laid out the plan, "As long as nothing goes wrong, we should be able to pull it off," henry said, "Don't...let any of them touch  you," Henry said, then thought about Gio, "I wish we had something to plug out ears with," he added as he sat up slowly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 07:28:45 AM
Elisha stood on deck by Gio, eyeing the docks as they approached Calais. "I'm ready to be off this bloody ship," she muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 07:30:33 AM
"I've torn off a piece of my cloak to cover his mouth with. I thought ahead. I'm not going to let him get to me again," Faline told him and then headed out of the ship, cloak over her head and started to make her way. From just on the stairs, we could see them, Gio, Casiel, the girls. They were all there.

Gio started down the plank and onto the dock, breathing out happily to be on the land again and not rocking away. It was raining though, the edge of that storm they'd seen before sprinkling on their heads. "Look at that Elisha. Free at last."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 07:34:13 AM
"Not really free, just free from this wretched seafaring deathtrap," she said. "Should we round up our allies and get out of here as soon as possible?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 07:34:33 AM
Henry followed her off the ship, grinning when his eyes landed on the others.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 07:36:05 AM
"Finally," Casiel grumbled, stumbling a bit as he made the transition from the rocking of the waves to firm, solid ground. He looked around, seeing all of the people busy milling about on the dock. "What's say we find some food, then a couple of horses and get a move on?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 07:41:14 AM
Giovanni nodded at Casiel's plan but then raised an eyebrow and looked to the side as he heard nearby running. "Who...." he said, squinting at the cloaked figure coming towards them, but then when he realized it, from seeing Henry behind her, Gio didn't have time. "St--" Faline jumped up,  putting a knee right into the wound she'd put on Gio's chest before grabbing his shoulders and flipping herself around him. He caved in almost immediately from the pain and stumbled to the ground. She put the cloth in his mouth and tied it tight. "Not this time, you oaf" she hissed and then pointed her knife into his spine, "Any of you move towards me and I'll slice right through. He'll never walk again!"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 07:43:28 AM
"Gio!" Casiel exclaimed, but stopped himself from intervening when he saw the girl's knife in his back. "Don't hurt him," he said carefully. "What do you want?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 07:44:49 AM
Elisha stepped back into the crowd a bit. Maybe she could just disappear from this, go her own way and leave them to their crazy battles. She didn't have to be part of this. No. She had made a truce. She had made a truce, and by the Gods, she was going to honour it. She grabbed one of the swords off of someone nearby and cut a weighted rope, causing the weight to swing in Faline's direction.

(sorry needed a pirate moment LOL)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 07:49:33 AM
Faline pulled Gio back to block the weight from hitting her, instead crashing into his arm. He cursed and glared at Elisha, but then looked at Casiel and just shook his head, unable to speak. Faline grabbed Gio's wrist with her free hand to keep him in place and looked around at the others, "You three are coming with me and Henry. Back to Nataliya."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 07:52:22 AM
"If she was honest about what she wanted done, I may not have such a problem with that," Elisha said darkly. In reality, she had changed her mind on that since travelling with Mateline, Gio, and Cas, but Faline didn't need to know that. "If someone deserves to die then that's that. But I won't go around doing a job for someone just because they told me to, that would make me an idiot."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Casiel shot Elisha a warning glare. Gio's life was on the line, but he figured she didn't care about that. And he knew he shouldn't either, and yet... "If we go with you, you'll let him go?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 08:24:39 AM
Faline smirked, "That's right. You three, on the boat with Henry. He'll even heal you'll little friend that he stabbed. We'll simply tell Nataliya that I killed him, but you must all agree to that. No one mentions this deal or the fact that I let the teleporter live."
Gio's eyes lit up. Teleport. If he could take Faline away, the other three could escape Henry.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 08:29:30 AM
Casiel looked over at Mateline. She needed healing, that was for sure. Plus the three of them could probably overpower Faline and Henry, right? "I'll go, then."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 08:32:01 AM
Gio's eyes flashed up to Casiel's and he begged him. This was a bad plan. Faline couldn't be trusted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 09:10:41 AM
Elisha stared at Cas. What was this idiot trying to do? They had to get away. She glanced at Gio, now wondering if he could teleport them all away if this stall continued. “I don’t agree,” she said. “We should know what we’re getting into.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 09:13:04 AM
Faline growled, "I don't know exactly what Nataliya has planned for you. I'm not in charge, I just do as I'm told and I was told to kill the teleporter and bring you three back. We can save your precious friend here if you just go along with this." Faline pressed the knife into Gio, piercing his skin through his tunic and causing him to yelp into the cloth. "I'm not a very patient woman."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 09:20:39 AM
Henry stood back, watching the scene carefully; she seemed to have everything under control. If she needed him, he was ready.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 09:24:15 AM
Elisha’s nose twitched a bit, something that happened when she was angry, stressed, or nervous. She looked at Henry, who was just standing there. “And you’re suddenly alright with all of this? Our first boat ride you were all nervous but then this woman appears and you’re all ready to do dirty work for someone you don’t know? For someone who’s intentions you don’t know? That seems reckless, stupid even.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 10:04:15 AM
“I don’t need to explain myself to you,” Henry snapped, his face clouding over with anger as he recalled his vision.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 10:14:08 AM
Casiel saw the look in Gio's eyes, that awful pleading, and grit his teeth. He wanted them to leave him, again. How many times would they have to do this? Still he took a step back, taking a deep breath and trying to keep himself from shaking.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 10:27:09 AM
Mateline stood there, too weak to even consider fighting back. Her face held a deathly pale pallor, but still, even the promise of being healed did not appeal. Not in return for Gio. “We aren’t going anywhere Without Gio,” She said boldly, scowling at both Henry and that woman.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 10:37:38 AM
Gio had formed a plan, but he wasn't sure if he could pull it off and he needed them to heal Mateline first. His chest ached from her kicking his wound like that and he felt like a few of the stitches might have come lose.
Faline glared at Mateline and Elisha, "Get back on the boat with Henry or he dies now." She pulled her knife up, causing Gio to struggle a bit.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 10:43:34 AM
With a sharp intake of breath, she moved towards Henry. There was no other choice, but that wouldn’t stop her from trying. She spat at Henry’s feet, a fiery glower directed at him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 10:50:44 AM
Not sure of what else to do, Casiel followed Mateline, hands in his pockets, fingers brushing the throwing knives he was carrying. If time came to act, he'd have to do so quickly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 10:54:03 AM
Gio felt Faline's grips on his wrists loosen up as she watched his friends start to move towards Henry. This was his chance. He pulled himself forward so her knife wouldn't continue to dig into him and then turned and grabbed her wrist and in a moment, they were gone. And then they were back, over the water next to the ship, Faline's growing wide as Gio took a deep breath while they both crashed into the cold sea.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 11:06:17 AM
Casiel sprung into action, flinging a couple of knives at Henry before he sprinted to the docks, scanning the water for any signs of Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 11:13:57 AM
Gio ripped the cloth off his mouth before searching for her. Faline was already struggled in the billows of her cloak and the fact that she didn’t breathe in. Gio ensured she was unconscious before pulling her back up though by pulling her hood down over her head and holding it there until she went limp. When she stopped moving, he grabbed the edge of the dock and pulled himself up, grabbing her cloak by the neck and pulling her body up with him, throwing it on the dock and glaring at Henry as blood trailed down his back and his front, “You want her? You heal Mateline. Now. I’ll give you one chance before it won’t be your decision.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 11:16:15 AM
Mateline watched in shock, eyes wide. “Gio...” she began, trying to process what had just happened. He was doing this for her? Nobody had cared so much for her, she could feel her heart soaring at the thought.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 12:03:54 PM
Henry had easily deflected Cas' knives, sending them clattering to the ground. He was going to retaliate but then Gio acted. Henry froze, watching as Gio teleported away and landed in the water with Faline; when he dragged her limp body onto the dock Henry did not know what to do. A part of him had grown fond of the girl and it clearly showed on his face. His eyes scanned the group quickly, trying to determine whether he could somehow take them down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 12:11:02 PM
Gio watched Henry's face change and realized what it was. Henry liked Faline. He had him right where he wanted him then. He reached down and pulled the cloak off her face, allowing her to breath up, water coughing up from her lungs, but before she could move, he commanded, "Sleep" and her body obeyed. He took some nearby rope and started to tie the cloak around her, her arms at her sides, her legs together. He looked up at Henry, "This is real simple. And if you don't. I'll throw her back in."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 12:13:15 PM
"You're out numbered," Casiel said to Henry, seeing his eyes dart back and forth as he was undoubtedly trying to come up with a plan. "Heal her, and the crazy wench won't drown."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 12:16:42 PM
Henry was furious that they he and Faline had failed again; if only he had better control over his new ability. There were many things he could think of to turn the situation in his favour but he was not sure how Gio's power worked. Would she wake up again on her own? Henry wasn't willing to risk it. "Fine," he spat out finally, glaring intensely at Gio. One day Henry would ensure that he suffered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 12:19:51 PM
(Fan. Tastic. Gio has so many enemies.)

"Casiel, watch him so he doesn't hurt Mateline," Gio told him as he picked up Faline in his arms and brought her closer to Henry. He had no intentions of giving her to him. He planned to keep this enemy very close.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Mateline stepped closer to Henry, concern evident. She didn’t trust Henry for a second, she just hoped this went quick. “You could still join us,” she said in a quiet voice to him, though there wasn’t much hope in it. He seemed too far gone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 12:28:13 PM
Henry reluctantly moved towards Mateline then stopped to look back at Gio, "Do I have your word that you will return her to me if I do this?" he questioned, "Awake," he added for good measure. Henry was suspicious, especially considering he and Faline had planned to double cross them. Who was to say that Gio would not do the same thing? Henry turned his gaze to Meteline and there was a hint of sadness and regret in his eyes but it quickly disappeared as he shook his head, "It's too late for that," he replied.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 12:33:08 PM
"It's not too late, you're just opting to pretend like it is," Elisha spat. "You can always change or revert. Nobody is forcing you to stay stagnant."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 12:40:16 PM
Gio grit his teeth and looked at Faline in his arms and then back at Henry. "Fine. You have my word. I will give her to you, awake, but not unbound. She is too dangerous and has made too many threats." he sighed, "Henry, Nataliya has no hold on you here. We can leave the girl and go. We'll be on the Mediterranean before they ever catch up. I'm sure whatever you feel for her, she's fooled you into. She climbed on me in bed to try and kill me Who's to say she won't do the same to you?"

There was a part of him that wanted to just give up and go with them but then he looked at Faline. Gio was wrong about her; she was not fooling him into it. Their journey together had showed him another side of Faline; she was not just a heartless killer. "You're wrong," Henry said firmly, remembering how distraught she had become after coming so close to hurting him. How she cared for his injury with such tenderness and concern.

Mateline reached out and touched Henry’s arm, not even considering the implications that came with her touching people with her powers. “She’s a murderer, she has no feelings.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 01:01:39 PM
Gio took a deep breath, "Henry, you don't want to be like them. You don't even have to come with us. You could just go home. Just...help us escape," he begged, "I don't care what you do with her. If you let her live or let her die. But should we have to be captives to that woman?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 01:09:53 PM
Henry pulled his arm away from Mateline quickly, "Don't touch me," he said sharply. He looked to Gio and just shook his head, "I...I can't. If we fail, she will find me and probably kill Faline," Henry admitted
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 01:11:43 PM
Elisha rolled her eyes. "That's just another stupid excuse. We're all on the run from that psychopath, if you come with us then we're just greater in numbers. Or don't come, just break off, you and this one," she pointed at Faline, "go off and figure out your own. There is no way that Nataliya is powerful enough to find us all around the world."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 01:15:13 PM
"And by fail, you mean you don't bring back those three and you don't kill me?" Gio explained. He then chuckled, "So it's a life for a life. Faline, who has killed endlessly and threatened all of us or me, a royal squire who just wants to know what the hell is going on and why I have these abilities!"

Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 01:51:43 PM
"You're life is no more valuable than hers," Henry said, his eyes setting on Faline again; he didn't trust Gio's word. He certainly didn't trust any of the others either; if his vision came to pass, they would clearly have no problem taking his life. "I will heal Mateline," he announced, while very carefully using his new ability to untie the robes binding Faline, "Because I am not a killer," he said firmly,  "but then I will stay here with Faline while you take off," Henry told them. He almost had the knot undone; he was really hoping Gio would not notice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 01:58:57 PM
Gio nodded and looked to Elisha and Casiel, “Go, find horses for us,” and then took a breath, “Go on then. Heal her.” He told him and didn’t notice the ropes loosening. He didn’t even know Henry had that ability.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 02:00:52 PM
"I'm not leaving till they do," Elisha said, eyeing Henry. Something was... off about him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 02:08:18 PM
Henry did not want to just let them run off but if he got Faline out of this, they could always track them down again. He continued to work on the rope as he turned back to Mateline, "It won't work as well if I'm not touching the wound but it's better than nothing," he said before placing his hands on her and let his power flow into her, focusing first on the infection then on closing the wound.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 02:17:15 PM
It was quite honestly the strangest sensation Mateline had ever felt, it was as if the skin was healing itself at an advanced pace - which really it was. She placed her hand against her stomach and stared. She could still feel something there, but she no longer felt sick from the infection and it didn't hurt nearly as much to move, which she discovered with an exploratory twist.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 02:23:34 PM
Henry pulled his hands away when he was finished and turned to Gio, his face conveying nothing of his own plans. "Alright, your turn," he said as the last knot finally came undone.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 03:03:36 PM
Gio watched him heal Mateline and when he was content that she was okay, he moved forward and carefully gave Faline over to Henry, “Leave. Both of you,” he told him and then took a deep breath. He released his hold on Faline, “Just wake her up after we’re gone,” he said. He then took Mateline by the arm and pulled her away and motioned for the other to follow as he started to run into the port town.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 03:21:21 PM
Mateline ran, but she kept looking back at Henry and Faline, wishing he had chosen to come with them. She didn’t let go of Gio either, not wanting to get separated in the town.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 03:23:42 PM
Henry watched them run off then started pulling the ropes off of Faline, "Come on Faline, wake up," he said, shaking her a bit. He was incredibly frustrated and angry that they had gotten away again; part of him was angry at himself for not joining them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 03:28:32 PM
Casiel followed the two of them, though he glanced back at Henry and shook his head. He had to admit, he'd liked the guy before he became a treacherous bastard. What a shame.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 03:42:50 PM
Faline looked up at him, still coughing up water and then started to cry, put her hands on Henry’s shirt and gripping it tightly, burying her face into his chest. She then moved her hands up and grabbed his face, “I’m...im gonna kill him!” She screamed and then turned and saw them running away and her heart sank. “They’re gonna get away,” she said, scrambling and trying to get out of her cloak to go after them.

Gio kept running with her, gasping and panting. The injuries on his chest and spine aches.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 03:43:49 PM
Elisha followed the others. She looked back, wondering what could have possibly changed his mind. She had assumed he would be one of the lesser threats, thinking either Gio or Cas would be easier turned. "Even if we run, they're so close to us, they could catch up so easily. Where are we going to disappear to?" she hissed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 03:54:40 PM
"Faline! Stop, it's too late," Henry insisted, putting his hands on her shoulders, "I...I am so sorry; I couldn't stop them. But...I promise you we will find them again," Henry promised her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:00:44 PM
Faline felt shakes over her body. If they lost this. If she lost this. It was the end. Her eyes filled with tears and she pushed Henry away violently, trying to get up and stumbling as soon as she got up and fell down. She gripped her own hair as she began to sob, still soaked, sitting there in the rain and mud.

Tension be damned. Casiel approached Gio, putting his arms around the other man to support him. He looked up at Elisha. "I don't know," Casiel said. He didn't know the area at all. "Maybe find somewhere to hide? Lay low for a while before we go out in the open again?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:27:48 PM
Gio glanced Casiel for only a moment to nod at him as a brief thank you, but then shoot his head, "We need to move as fast as possible. My ability's affect will only delay her so long. Coming out of a sleep like that, she'll be weak." he looked at a nearby tavern and saw a horse with a cart behind it. He stopped and looked around before helping Mateline onto the cart and pointed to it as well, "Elisha, hop on. Casiel, with me," he said and pulled himself onto the horse with ease. It would be easier for the horse to pull the girl's weight and carry the men.

Elisha climbed up behind Mateline. “Are you sure you shouldn’t be back here?” She asked Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:31:58 PM
Cas hesitated for a moment, unable to help himself from thinking about how awkward the entire situation would be. But they had no choice and he knew that, so he swallowed his pride and climbed onto the animal behind Gio.

Henry fell back, staring over at her with a mix of fear and sympathy. He sighed and crawled over to her, keeping his hands away from her; she was too unpredictable. "Faline, it is going to be okay. I am going to find them and we are going to bring them back to Nataliya." Henry assured her, still hanging back a bit. "and if I get my hands on Gio, I will personally help you kill him," Henry said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:36:49 PM
Faline sat up slowly and looked back at him. She nodded, knowing that they could catch them again and then came over to him, holding closely to him, arms around his torso, face finding the crook of his neck, "That monster tried to drown me," she whispered close to his ear.

Giovanni shook his head at Elisha and as soon as Casiel was behind him, he commanded, "Run," to the horse while holding it's neck and then horse took off in a gallop, heading out. He occasionally looked back to see if they were being followed and was encouraged as they did. He also caught Casiel's eyes a few times when looking back but didn't acknowledge him, just kept pressing forward.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:44:11 PM
Casiel swore loudly as the horse took off, clinging to Gio like a vice, afraid of being thrown off. He felt his face growing hot as they rode, feeling oddly embarrassed by everything that was happening.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 04:44:50 PM
Henry drew her into his arms, his hand on the back of her head, "He was going to kill you if I didn't heal Mateline; I...I couldn't take on all four of them," he said shamefully
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 04:48:34 PM
"I let my guard down. I shouldn't have," Faline confessed and her body shook nervously, "He told me to sleep and I thought I would never wake up," she told him and clenched onto him even tighter.

Giovanni slowed when he was sure they weren't being followed and breathed out, hanging his head down a bit and he clutched his chest, "Dammit," he muttered as he pulled away his hand and blood covered it, "She reopened my chest wound."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 08, 2019, 04:49:46 PM
“That’s not good,” Elisha said. “We should find you another doctor.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 04:56:02 PM
"One of us needs to learn how to take better care of injuries," Casiel said, feeling comfortable enough now to ease his grip around Gio. "There must be a healer around here who can help." He looked around, though the streets were confusing and he couldn't read anything that the signs said. Then he looked down and saw the bright crimson mark on his hand: Gio's blood. He felt his heart skip, his breathing slowing as he stared at his palm.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:00:13 PM
Henry was quiet; he had been frightened that Gio's power would keep her in a permanent sleep. If he had not released her, she probably would have been. "I won't let him hurt you again," Henry whispered.

OH NO! DONT DO IT!!!!)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:04:59 PM
Faline pulled her face back and looked up at Henry. She believed him. She reached up, gently touching his cheek and then pulled her hand away as she started to pull herself together, "Have you seen where they're going?"

(Oh not this again XD )

Gio wasn't really listening anymore. He was starting to fade, his eyes fluttering. The horse kept on, but Gio started to slowly lean back in Casiel until he was out, about to slide off the horse.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:11:40 PM
<**aw come on guys I'm sure it'll be fine this time :P**>

He felt drawn to it, he realized, and it made him feel sick but strangely tempted. Before he could stop himself he brought his hand up to his mouth to taste and was instantly overcome both with shame, and a feeling of pure, unbridled energy. Then Gio fell back on him. "Crap," he hissed, holding onto him so he didn't fall, while also reaching around to grab the reins, bringing the horse to a halt.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:13:09 PM
Henry shook his head, "I haven't seen anything yet," he admitted. He breathed in deeply and closed his eyes, searching for something useful. Eventually, he gave up and looked towards town, "They went that way, I think by horse," Henry said then looked back at her, "From what I did see, you must have reopened his wound," Henry informed her, sounding rather pleased
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:16:01 PM
Faline looked at him and smirked a little seeing that he seemed...proud of her for injuring Giovanni. She nodded and then got up, standing and then cursing. Her knife, her quiver, all lost in the sea. She only had the dagger against her chest. She looked down at Henry and put her hand out, "Shall we stay here tonight or do you want to go after them?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:21:19 PM
While he would have loved to rest, Henry knew they could not waste any time. He took her hand and got up to his feet with her assistance, "I think we should go after them," Henry said, "while he's weak. If he teleports with all of them, we lose"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:24:42 PM
Faline nodded and then looked around for a horse for them to take as well. She found one there at the docks and looked back at Henry, "We should ride together. I only have my dagger and I don't want to lose you." she told him. She then looked at him and her face flushed. She didn't want to lose him, in many ways. "Thank you for saving me from them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:31:12 PM
Casiel carefully helped Giovanni off of the horse, able to move him with surprising ease (though he chalked that up to adrenaline), lying him on the ground. His wound was bleeding again and while he knew he should be calling for help he instead found himself staring at the blood. He tore his gaze away, grinding his teeth. What the hell was going on with him?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:33:25 PM
“Glad to know you have so much confidence in me,” Henry said teasingly then grew more serious, “you’re welcome,” he said his cheeks also reddening, “I couldn’t let them hurt you or leave you behind” he said. The thought had crossed his mind; he probably would have been better off going with the others but something kept him tethered to her. She was deeply disturbed, but there was something so vulnerable and sweet beneath.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:38:48 PM
As Casiel moved him to the ground, Giovanni went in and out, but when he was around, he followed Cas' gaze to his wound and looked confused, "Is it that bad? Cas, help me on the cart. Let Elisha ride." he told him and groaned as he tried to sit up.

"Leave me behind?" she asked and then she looked at him with wide eyes, "They offered for you to go with them." she realized, "And you...didn't take it?" Faline was confused by him. He didn't want to work for Nataliya, he even tried to convinced her to not do it. She pulled herself onto the horse.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 05:46:13 PM
"What? Oh, yeah, right," Casiel muttered, lifting Giovanni up onto the cart. "Just... make sure he stays awake, all right?" He told Mateline before hopping back onto the horse with Elisha.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 05:48:41 PM
Henry said nothing as he pulled himself up after her; was he a fool for not going with them?
“They would never trust me again; I would feel more like a prisoner with them,” Henry said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 08, 2019, 05:53:15 PM
Faline looked ahead and then nodded, "You belong with us now," she told him and then spurred the horse and started after the group, heading into the French coast.

Gio laid on the cart and looked over at Mateline, taking her hand in his clean on, "I'm glad you're alright." he murmured.

(Sleepy time. Night!)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 08, 2019, 06:01:12 PM
Her words did not put his mind at ease; he did not want to belong to anyone, but he supposed she was right. There was no turning back for him. He’d made his choice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 08, 2019, 06:08:47 PM
<**night night!**>

Casiel once again brought his hand up to taste the blood, once again feeling that electrifying power soar through him. He couldn't rightfully explain it, but he felt better than he had in years: stronger, more focused and clear-headed. He took in a deep breath. Looking up again to scan the area for someone who might be able to help Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 08, 2019, 09:32:19 PM
Mateline squeezed Gios hand, trying not to panic as she took in his weak form. “Hey, it’s my turn to take care of you, got it?” She told him in an urgent voice. “But I need you to stay awake for me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 01:36:55 AM
Elisha climbed up onto the horse, eyeing Casiel warily. She had heard of hell children drinking blood, though she had never seen it. Maybe he was more dangerous than she had initially given him credit for. “What in the world are you doing?” She hissed, quiet enough that Mateline and Gio wouldn’t hear. She wasn’t sure Gio was going to make it, and Cas drinking his blood was not a good sign. What if he lost control and finished Gio?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 04:27:23 AM
(Okay, so since I don’t feel like playing Cat and Mouse for the whole RP, I will agree to have Faline’s mind wiped. Especially since I think that could make Henry be okay in the eyes of some of the others. But when she does regain it, she will NOT be happy.))

Faline pushed forward, racing the horse, not caring to slow this time since Henry was on the horse with her. She did not care to chase these people all through France.

Gio looked at her and try to smile, but then coughed violently and laid back, staring at the sky, “Mateline. Don’t let Casiel kill the girl. If he starts down the path of revenge, he may not come back” he said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:01:53 AM
<**aww yeeeeea**>

Casiel looked up, surprised. "I'm not doing anything," he said quickly, feeling the shame slowly ink its way in again. Then he heard Gio. Revenge? Oh, no. "No," he hissed, managing to turn himself around on the horse. He scanned the horizon for a moment before hopping off of the animal. He was going to find Henry and make him heal Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 05:06:37 AM
That’s probably good idea :p)


Henry held on tightly as they tore through the town, just going they could catch up. With the way she was riding, he felt good about their chances.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:30:40 AM
Faline pressed on until she saw them. But it was odd, they had stopped and Casiel was standing in the road, like he was waiting for them. She pulled the horse to the side. She slid down and then looked at the cart and a cruel smile met her lips, “He’s dying, isn’t he?” She said and gracefully slid the dagger out of her tunic, “You should have come with us. He wouldn’t be suffering so now. I would have put him out of his misery the moment you got on the ship”

Gio coughed again, blood hitting his lips. When she’d stabbed his back, she’d punctured his lung and now the hole was growing. “Casiel! No!” He gasped as he saw him get down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:33:57 AM
"Henry's going to heal him," Casiel said coldly, storming towards her. "Then I'm getting rid of you, once and for all."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 05:35:25 AM
(wait im assuming the horses are stopped now because otherwise what)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 05:46:57 AM
henry snorted as he slid off the horse as well. "I will do no such thing," Henry said, looking at Gio with a cold smile; he used his new ability to hold Gio's mouth shut. He was not about to be ordered around by that voice of his.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:50:33 AM
<**yes they are, Mercy established this**>

"I'm not about to give you a choice," Casiel replied coolly. There was something different about the way he was acting he realized. He felt more confident and much colder, like he could easily snap Henry's neck and feel nothing afterwards. And why would he? They were inferior. He darted past Henry, grabbing Faline by the arm, twisting it behind her back. "I will break it," he warned them. "Or maybe I'll tear it right off. You don't need both of them, right?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 05:55:14 AM
Henry turned his attention to Cas, surprised by the man's sudden ruthlessness. "let her go," henry hissed. He looked again to Gio, using his power again to raise the man up high above them. "Or I will drop him"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 06:01:55 AM
"Do you really have it in you to kill someone, Henry?" Casiel asked, twisting Faline's arm hard. "Funny how much of a monster you've become already. I never said I was going to kill her, and yet you resort to trying to murder someone in retaliation. Tsk tsk. That healing ability of yours sure is ironic."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 06:03:22 AM
(oops my bad)

Elisha stood back, watching Casiel. The blood had changed him. And while she was enjoying the show - Faline probably deserved to die - it wasn't like the Cas she had come to know over the past few days. When Henry picked up Gio, she knew that there needed to be a distraction of some sort. She grabbed one of the daggers, hurling it at Henry, and jumped up into the carriage to try to break Gio's potential fall a little.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 07:33:27 AM
Henry glared intensely at Cas, still holding Gio up in the air. He really had not intended to kill Gio; he had hoped it would force Cas to let Faline go. Henry still wasn't sure he was capable of murdering someone, even though he had made such a promise to Faline.

Henry did not have a chance to retort as he was forced to deflect Elisha's knife, causing him to lose focus. He watched Gio fall; gods he wanted to just let the guy die but something in Henry just couldn't let that happen. He was still human. At the last moment, he used his power to gently drop Gio to the ground.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 07:40:52 AM
Mateline cried out and grabbed Gios head to place it in her lap. Her powers were useless in a distanced fight, and somebody needed to look out for Gio in all the fighting. She just wanted it over.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 07:47:26 AM
Gio groaned as he was lifted and struggled as Henry prevented him from speaking. He closed his eyes and willed himself to teleport back to the ground but his chest just bled more and he didn’t move. As he was dropped back down as Mateline pulled him close, he reached up and touched her face with his bloodied hand and his eyes begged her for peace. He was nearly done. His eyes fluttered.

Faline just breathed heavily as Casiel held her arm. She wouldn’t scream. She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction. “Take the arm. I only need one to kill you. You’re wasting your time. Giovanni will die and you will watch and what will be left of you then? Just a husk if a man who doesn’t even know his past,” she taunted him and put her second arm down behind her back and dropped the dagger into it, then turning herself into the way he had her arm twisted and planting the dagger into his shoulder and pulling it back out, attempting to stab him again.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 07:48:45 AM
(I just realized that in a lot of ways, Elisha is like Artemis haha)

"Mateline, take the horse, guide it out of here. We don't need Gio to be used as our weakness," Elisha hissed. Maybe they could subdue Henry, use him to heal Gio later, but right now, Gio being there was a bad idea.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 07:51:32 AM
Casiel howled in rage and pain. He was going to kill her; he was going to tear her apart. No, no, he couldn't do that. He ground his teeth, holding his wounded shoulder as he leapt out of the way of her attack. Then he sprung forward and grabbed her head, focusing. All of the memories of her hatred, of working for Nataliya, of wanting to hurt them, he focused on wiping out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 07:57:58 AM
Faline dropped to her knees as her mind scrambled and she just stared up at him for a moment, confused, but the more she got lost, the more she grew in fear. Struggling, she grabbed at his arm, “Stop! Stop! Please!” She begged, scared, starting to not even know what was happening. She slowly then calmed down and just stared at him and her arms dropped off, blankly looking at Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 08:02:21 AM
Castiel stepped back, breathing hard. It had taken a lot of energy to do what he'd just done; honestly he was surprised he'd even managed it. He turned to Henry. "All the fight has left your friend," he told him. "I suggest you heal Giovanni now, or I'll wipe every last memory she has."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 08:08:47 AM
Nataliya looked at the bloody dagger in her hand and then dropped it, gasping. She looked at the cart where Mateline, Elisha, and Gio were but just was more confused. She tried to push Casiel’s arm away from her and turned back to see who he spoke to. Her eyes grew wide, “Henry!” She callled and she looked desperate.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 08:12:55 AM
Now that was an interesting turn of events. Elisha knew Cas could alter memories, but do it to the point where Faline seemed to not know them? "Hold off," she muttered to Mateline, glad they hadn't raced off just yet. Slowly, she walked towards where Cas and Faline were, eyeing Faline carefully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 08:17:47 AM
Mateline clutched Gio’s face desperately, forcing him to maintain eye contact. “You hold on,” she told him firmly, voice shaking. “I’m not ready to lose you just yet. Stay strong for me.” Her voice broke and she pet his hair gently, trying to provide some semblance of comfort.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 08:56:42 AM
Henry had been terrified as Cas wiped her mind but then she called out for him; there was still part of her left.  The desperate look in her eyes broke him. Henry knelt in front of in front of her, gently placing his hands on her cheeks, "It's going to be okay," he whispered then looked up at Cas, "I'll do it, I'll heal him; just don't mess with her mind any more than you already have"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 08:58:52 AM
"Mess with my mind?" Faline asked, looking up at Casiel and then back at Henry, "What...what's happening?" she asked and put her hands over his as they held her face, "Henry, what did he do to me?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 09:06:36 AM
Casiel dropped his hands, but still held tightly to her arm. "Heal him," Casiel ordered. "Now." He looked over at Faline, actually smiling. "Oh, nothing. Nothing at all."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 09:11:05 AM
Faline was terrified of Casiel, pulling at her arm, "Please, let me go," she said, fairly politely and looked at Henry, "Please Henry, you can heal him. Help them."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 09:13:32 AM
Henry glared at Cas before looking back at Faline, "It's not important now," he said gently. Reluctantly he withdrew his hands and stood up.

Henry walked over to where Gio lay, placing his hands on Gio's chest wound. He stayed like that until both of Gio's injuries completely disappeared.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 09:18:44 AM
Casiel grinned, a cruel expression, and released his hold on Faline. Something about all of this just felt so right. The power he was feeling was so familiar. Was this who he had been before? He walked over to the others, kneeling down by Gio. His injuries were healed and not a moment too soon.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 09:20:43 AM
Elisha hopped up to where Gio was. "How do you feel?" It was probably the first genuinely nice thing she'd said to him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 09:21:55 AM
Faline watched him go and then looked at Casiel, "What did Henry and I do to you? Please...let...let me go," she begged him and put her hand over his. When Casiel let her go, she just stood still and waited for Henry to come to her. She realized she didn't know where they were or why they were here.

Gio's gasped out in pain as Henry put his hands on him and then breathed shakily, new life flowing through him. He eventually grabbed Henry's hand as he sat up and looked in his eyes, "I knew you'd do the right thing." He then looked over at Casiel and Faline, Faline looking so lost and scared. "I hope whatever he's done, she's better for it. She still seems to care for you. I can feel it between you." He then looked at Casiel when he knelt beside him and shook his head, "What have you done?" his eyes then turning to Elisha and nodded, "Better. Thank you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 09:30:26 AM
Casiel frowned. He seemed upset. "I saved your life," he said. "And made sure that mad woman no longer wants to hurt us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 09:33:48 AM
Giovanni searched Casiel's face and then sat up more and passed his hand over his jaw, "Thank you," he said quietly and then pulled his hand away before grunting and pulling himself up and standing off the cart, looking at the bloody tunic he wore.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 09:38:17 AM
Elisha looked around at the lot of them. Their clothes were bloodied, or had holes, or both. "It appears we'll need to find some new garments."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 09:43:04 AM
Healing a wound as bad as Gio's had taken it's toll on Henry. He had fallen to his knees, unable to support himself any longer. He looked back at faline, just barely registering Gio's words. Maybe she would be better off this way.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 09:48:40 AM
Faline ran to Henry and got down beside him, holding his face this time, searching his face, his eyes. She was scared for him, scared for herself. "We should leave these people," she said quietly, "We should go...." she trailed off and then looked him over, "Home?" she asked and shook her head, holding her forehead, "But I can't...recall where our home is." She knew so little. She knew she'd grown up an orphan. That things were very hard. That a man took her in after the orphanage dismissed her....and then it trailed off until a few nights ago, she was curled up in this man's arms on a ship. She knew so little, but one thing she was certain, she belonged with Henry and he could take care of her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 10:02:05 AM
Casiel watched him for a moment, unsure of whether or not it was the blood calling to him, or something... else. He shook his head, looking at Elisha. "We can probably knick some stuff off of a clothesline." His gaze then wandered down to his wounded shoulder, and he ripped a piece of his sleeve off to wrap around the injury.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 10:04:28 AM
Henry shook his head, “no...no we can’t go home. We can’t go anywhere near home,” Henry said weakly. They had failed and nataliya would not be happy; she would probably send someone after them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 10:07:04 AM
Gio looked at Casiel and his shoulder and went to his bag, grabbing the salve and coming to help him. He put some on the wound gently and then tied the cloth on tighter that Casiel could with one arm. He then looked at him as they stood closely and put his arm around the other side, pulling Casiel close to himself and just holding onto him and then wrapping his second arm around his waist, careful with his shoulder. He curled his fingers into the hair at the nape of his neck.

Faline looked at Henry confused, “Then... then where are we going to go? With them?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 10:12:14 AM
Henry sighed, looking over at the others; he really didn’t want to be anywhere near them after everything that had happened, but he wasn’t sure going off alone was such a good idea. How would they protect themselves now? He couldn’t shoulder that responsibility all on his own. “We May have to” Henry said.

"It's not a bad idea," Elisha mused. "She's practically invalid, and having a healer along with us would be wise, given the amount of trouble we've had in such a short time. I suspect it won't be the only trouble we have either."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 10:20:39 AM
<**this is not how we help with the tension, Giovanni :P**>

Casiel felt his breath hitch in his throat, his heart hammering against his rib cage as Gio pulled him close. He'd been so close to losing him, he finally realized, and he couldn't bear to think about that. A possessive hunger had overcome him then, a hunger he could ignore no longer. Before he could think about what he was doing he closed the short distance between them and kissed him.

Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 10:27:10 AM
(OH LORD)

Elisha looked away from Cas and Gio awkwardly. She was never good being around public displays of emotion when they were between a man and woman, never mind two men. While she ultimately did not care, they were out in the open, literally anyone could come across them. "Idiots," she hissed under her breath.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 10:37:31 AM
Mateline presses her hand to her open mouth, shocked by the display. She had had her suspicions but she never expected anything like that. She turned away to look at Elisha, hoping to share in some shock, but the woman seemed more annoyed than anything. “What do they think they’re doing?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 10:38:43 AM
"Being extremely stupid," Elisha replied. She was hardly surprised that it was happening, however she was caught off guard by the timing and location.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 10:39:54 AM
Giovanni felt Casiel’s lips against his and got wide eyes. He pulled his lips away and breathed hard, “Casiel...now?” He muttered and pulled his arms away, shaking his head, “We’ll talk about this later.”

Faline looked at Henry and Elisha and stood up, “I’m not an invalid. I’m...strong and fast. I can help. And I’m good with horses”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 10:48:52 AM
Casiel was surprised, for a moment, that he'd broken away. And then angered, and finally humiliated as the fog in his brain cleared away. What had he done? He'd barely thought, only reacted on complete instinct like an animal. He stepped away, covering his mouth, horrified. "I... I'm sorry..." he mumbled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 10:55:52 AM
Gio looked at the shocked faces on the others and wrapped his arms around himself, shaking his head at Cas, “I’m not upset. At all. This is just...not the place,” he murmured and the smiled to himself a little.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 11:12:21 AM
"No... no I... I shouldn't have..." Casiel turned away, suddenly feeling the urge to vomit. "Some-something's wrong with me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 11:20:17 AM
Giovanni felt sick too as Casiel looked like he’d vomit and assumed it was because he kissed him. He stepped back and then headed for the horse and turned and looked over their group, “Are you two coming along?” He asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 11:27:53 AM
It took him a moment to calm down. He couldn't believe the way he'd been acting. He finally took a deep breath and walked over to the others, keeping his head low as if he wanted to be invisible.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 11:57:00 AM
Henry had paid little attention to the boy's moment; he'd foreseen it days prior so he was not surprised. It would have been nice to have seen the lead up though.

Henry stayed where he was on the ground, he was so exhausted; all he wanted to do was rest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 12:50:03 PM
“Let’s get to the next town and find a room for the night. Or. Rooms,” he said, looking at the group of six. “I suppose we can do Elisha, Casiel; me and Mateline with Henry and Faline” he said. He didn’t trust Casiel this way to be alone with him...or Henry and Faline. He looked at the new recruits, “Henry on the cart with Faline and Casiel. Elisha take the other horse. Mateline with me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 12:53:42 PM
Elisha nodded. She hopped onto the horse. She wasn't going to mention it now, but she thoroughly thought Henry and Faline should be separated into different rooms.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 12:55:25 PM
Casiel climbed onto the cart, as stoic and distant as he'd been in the beginning. He sat quietly, feeling a terrible headache coming on. Could today possibly get any worse?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 01:00:19 PM
Henry managed to get to his feet and onto the cart; he had not expected to end up with these people again. He really did not want to be in a position where he needed them, and he certainly did not want to be their personal healer.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 01:28:43 PM
Faline got up in the cart and curled into Henry’s lap, eyeing Casiel nervously as she put her arm around the only person in the world she knew she could trust. Though the Gio guy seemed kind as well.

Giovanni pulled Mateline up onto the horse and they headed on the way. It wasn’t until the sun began to set that he actually looked for a place for them to stay. He saw the closest town and pulled in. “Someone let me know when they see an inn.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 01:48:42 PM
There was an inn up ahead, he noticed. Casiel was about to speak up, but his voice caught and found himself unable to speak, still far too embarrassed by his antics. Instead he just coughed and pointed towards the building.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 01:52:32 PM
At some point along the ride, Henry had fallen asleep. He really didn't trust the others but it had been impossible to stay awake.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 02:00:11 PM
Gio looked back at Casiel when he coughed and realized what he was pointing out and nodded. He pulled the cart and his horse to the Inn and tied his horse to the post before hopping down. He snapped his fingers next to Henry’s ear to wake him and then headed to the entrance, “Casiel,” he called, “Will you get the rooms for us?” He asked, fairly emotionless, just a request. His eyes didn’t even meet Cas’.

Faline furrowed her brow at Giovanni for snapping at Henry, but shook him awake herself and slid off the cart, “Come on. You’ll sleep inside.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 02:03:07 PM
Henry groaned unhappily as he was rudely awake; he easily could have slept for much longer. He still felt so tired and the wound in his side was aching. Reluctantly he sat up slowly, looking around to get his bearings before climbing off after Faline.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 02:15:36 PM
<**:(**>

The indifference in his voice was almost painful, but Casiel knew he deserved it. He went and got them a few rooms (three, with two beds each as he wasn't sure what the sleeping arrangements were going to be) then returned to the others with the keys, giving Giovanni three of them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 02:20:57 PM
Elisha went over to Gio, speaking quietly so only he would hear. "Is it wise to have Henry and that girl in together? Shouldn't they be separated?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 02:21:52 PM
Giovanni took the keys and and then looked at their crew. “Henry and Faline shouldn’t be alone in a room. They could take off if someone isn’t watching them.” He looked at Casiel, “And I don’t trust you with them and you don’t want to stay with me. So I’m putting you with Mateline. Elisha, you will stay with Faline. Henry, you’re with me.”

Faline immediately shook her head and clung to Henry’s arm, “I’m not going anywhere without him. And I’m not staying with any of you.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 02:27:17 PM
Elisha stared at Faline. So she had to deal with the lumpfish. Fine. "Let's go," she said to Faline. "May as well get some rest."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 02:28:09 PM
"Never said I didn't want to stay with you," Casiel muttered under his breath. Of course it was for the best; he could only imagine how awkward spending the night together would be. So instead he walked over to Mateline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 02:29:26 PM
Mateline frowned at the sleeping arrangements, having hoped to room with Gio or Elisha. Casiel clearly had a distaste for her and she didn’t relish the thought of staying in a room alone with him. But she could take one for the team, it wasn’t as though he was murderous. “Don’t worry, I won’t strip down in front of you again.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 02:37:32 PM
Cas rubbed the back of his head. "Yeah, uh... I'd, I'd appreciate that," he said. "Guess we should head upstairs..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 02:42:01 PM
She shrugged and started walking without another word. Mateline couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable around Casiel, the more she considered the likelihood he could be her brother the more she wondered if that was something she wanted, what with his display of such malice back on the road.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 02:49:05 PM
Even she seemed weirdly distant. Great. Casiel followed her up to their room, head down. The room in question was small, but as promised there were two beds. Cas chose one and lied down, curling up on his side.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 02:50:43 PM
Mateline sat down on the other, but didn’t lie down, struggling to keep her mouth shut. Her eyes bore into Cas’ back until finally she said, “Whydontyoulikeme?” all in one breath of air.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 02:51:59 PM
Gio heard him and looked at Cas for a moment, confused. He shook his head though and handed him a key and Elisha one. “I’ll see you all in the morning.” He turned to walk with Henry but stopped beside Casiel and swallowed, “The tavern downstairs. Once Mateline is asleep,” he whispered and then went to his room, guiding Henry along. “Elisha can be trusted. Faline will be okay he promised.

Faline looked at Elisha nervously and walked towards their room, “Fine...” she said quietly and looked back at Henry, nervous.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 02:53:42 PM
("Elisha can be trusted" it's not untrue but LOL I'd question it)

Elisha led Faline back to their room. "Don't worry, I have no plans on harming you for the time being," she muttered. "I fight fair and right now you're not a threat."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 03:00:46 PM
Casiel turned around to look at Mateline. "I don't... not like you," he said, sitting himself up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 03:02:39 PM
Her brow was furrowed in a way that showed she was clearly bothered. “You’ve clearly had an issue with me since the beginning, and I’d like to know why,” she said in as steady a voice as she could.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 03:03:20 PM
Faline looked at Elisha as she went in the room and climbed into one of the beds. She swallowed, “I’m so confused about everything. Why can’t I stay with Henry?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 03:05:44 PM
Elisha smirked. "I do like you better like this, all innocent," she said. She went over to one of the beds, sitting down on it. "Long story short, you and Henry hunted us down and tried to kill my ally. So keeping you apart is for the best, in case one of you gets any brilliant ideas to try that again. We don't need you conspiring."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 03:14:22 PM
"I've no issue with you," Casiel said flatly. "I just..." He paused, biting his lip. "You seem like a scared child, and all of this is far too dangerous for you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 03:14:37 PM
Faline just looked at her more confused, “Why would we try to kill you? What..what did you do?” She asked and felt uneasy suddenly, pulling back into her bed and her knees to her chest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 03:16:57 PM
Mateline rolled her shoulders in an unconscious attempt to look more adult. “I may seem young and afraid, but I am still a child of Hades,” she spoke with an uncertainty. She still wasn’t positive that was her father, but she was going with it. “I am powerful as the rest of you, I just don’t want to have to use my powers.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 03:24:10 PM
"We didn't do anything," Elisha said, laying back. "In any case, it's over with now. Get some rest, you'll need it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 03:25:48 PM
"Child of Hades," Casiel replied with a bemused chuckle. "So, tell me, what were your powers again? Aside from the nightmare-making," he added with a little wave of his hand.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 03:28:35 PM
She didn’t quite appreciate his laughter, but still she answered. “Well the spirits of course, not that they seem to listen to me near as much as they do you. And fire.” She balled her hands into fists as if they were red hot again. “Different levels of fire, but always fire. Blue fire.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 03:34:29 PM
"Fire?" He repeated, curious. "Wish I could do that. Would've burned that treacherous bastard's face off," he grumbled, sitting now so his back was against the headboard. "I wonder why the spirits obey me and not you?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 03:35:19 PM
Faline nodded at Elisha and curled up in her bed, turning away, closing her eyes tightly, scared of Elisha hurting her while she slept. She couldn’t figure out why they all hated her. She wouldn’t kill anyone!!!
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 09, 2019, 03:37:27 PM
She fiddled with her fingers. She didn’t want the fire, it was the last thing she wanted to have. But he was talking to her, and he wasn’t exasperated yet. “I mean you have a more...commanding presence than I do. They seem to respond quite well to you. They’ve only ever listened to me a couple of times.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 03:38:13 PM
Elisha sat back up to take off her cloak and boots. She noticed Faline turn away and rolled her eyes. She had once been a fierce adversary and now she was a shrivelled mess. It was impressive, what Casiel had done, but it was also proof that she shouldn't underestimate him. "You may be more comfortable without your shoes and gear," she pointed out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 03:44:14 PM
“Is it...bothering you?” Faline asked and then turned and looked at Elisha. She then began to unlace her boots and kicked them off and furrowed her brow as she saw the marks on her leg from when Elisha electrocuted her, but she had no idea what did it to her. She swallowed, “I...I don’t know what this is,” she said, scared.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 03:45:09 PM
"Doesn't make sense though," Casiel said with a frown. "We can both see them, and we're both appalled children of Hades. So why don't they listen to you? And, for the record, I am the furthest thing from commanding."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 03:46:31 PM
"Right," Elisha said, eyeing the mark. "You tried to kill me by standing on my neck, and that was my body's response and attempt at self preservation. Though you have nothing to worry about, that's one thing I can't control but it only comes out when I'm in danger. If you don't attack me, you'll be fine."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 03:51:05 PM
(So...Mara, why are you trying to trigger Faline’s memory so soon? 😂😂 Girl, they cleared her memory for a reason.)

Faline looked at Mara and shook her head, “I wouldn’t hurt anyone. Please. I’m confused. This...this can’t be true. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry,” she said and then touched her leg and then seethed, “It hurts”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 03:53:50 PM
(Elisha doesn't think. Well, she does, but she's like Hamlet, she either thinks and doesn't do or does and doesn't think. But I can dial it back)

"Just ignore it and it'll go away. You've been doing that thus far," she said. She rolled back onto her bed. "You'll be fine."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 04:16:40 PM
"It's...Elisha, yes?" Faline asked and then tilted her head, "In the orphanage, they would read stories from the bible to us. There was a man named Elisha in them. He was friends with Elijah. These children bully Elisha and then two bears eat the children."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 04:20:20 PM
Clearly exhausted, Mateline had fallen asleep. Casiel considered doing the same, but he knew better than to avoid Gio, so he pulled her blanket over her then left the room, creeping downstairs to the tavern. He got himself a drink (a rather strong one this time), and then found himself a quiet place to sit down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 04:21:19 PM
Elisha smirked. "Fantastic," she said. "My name does carry some irony, with it meaning 'God is my salvation'. I wonder if my parents knew that when naming me, or if they just liked the name."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 04:27:04 PM
Faline sat up in her bed and craddled her knees to her chest, "Faline means catlike. I don't know who gave me that name. I...I don't think it's what they called me at the orphanage though."

Gio had put Henry right to bed, who had fallen right back to sleep and then came down to the tavern. He saw Casiel in the corner and sighed, taking a large beer from the counter and then going to sit beside him at the table. He didn't look at him, but he did speak, "I'm....surprised you came down." he said quietly and took a long drink.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 04:34:33 PM
Casiel smiled softly, although there was no humour in it. "To be honest I considered just going right to bed." He knocked back the rest of his drink (which he'd been sipping on anxiously before Giovanni had arrived). "I'm sorry, Gio," he said suddenly. "I didn't mean... I didn't think about what I was doing, and I- I really shouldn't have..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 04:42:39 PM
Giovanni closed his eyes as Casiel's apology began and it was exactly what he didn't want to hear. He considered walking away right there. He took a breath though and just put a hand up, "I don't--care." he said bluntly, "My only concern was that it was so...open..." he swallowed, "Casiel, why would I be angry when I was the one who first told you I cared?" he then looked at Casiel and gripped his glass, "I embraced you because...I was incredibly thankful that you'd saved me and--" he trailed off, shaking his head. He looked away and then up at the crowd. He saw a couple, the girl sitting in the guy's lap at the bar, so close they could probably taste each other's breath as they whispered. Why didn't he deserve the same? "I can see it, the...connections between people. Call it a gift, not quite an ability, like the way I see if someone is attractive. Those two, just lust. The man in the corner there, he has a woman at home he loves deeply." Giovanni shook his head, "But I've never been able to see a connection with anyone else for myself, until I met you." he said, very quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Faline looked at Elisha and shook her head, "Oh, I'm not sure. Probably nothing important. I don't remember anything before the Orphanage. I assume I was left there as a baby," she told her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 04:55:00 PM
Casiel looked at the people he was pointing out as if he could see something there. "And you see a connection? With me?" He asked softly, staring into his empty cup. "You know it's not that I regret doing it, it's just... Under the circumstances and everything. I didn't think, I just acted. And that was stupid- we could have been seen. You could have gotten hurt because I was stupid and impulsive."

Post by: kristina-la on January 09, 2019, 04:57:06 PM
Henry was not happy about the sleeping arrangement; he would feel more comfortable being with Faline. He did not feel good about leaving her alone, especially when she was so vulnerable. He was too exhausted to put up much of a fight though so he kept quiet and did what he was told. He felt like a prisoner.

As soon as Henry lay down he fell into a deep sleep, not even hearing when Gio had left.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

“Maybe you should have a new name,” Elisha said. “If you’re starting a new path in your life, you can close the old one by changing your name. That’s how I see it.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:00:20 PM
The hint of a smirk found Giovanni's lips as he drank from his glass again. He looked out at the crowd and then threw some coins on the table for both their drinks. "Well, I forgive you for being impulsive. Hopefully, next time you...are more calculated," he told him and stood up. He walked past Casiel and put his hand on his shoulder, "I owe you my life Casiel. I hope one day, I can repay the favor." he told him quietly and then lifted his hand off and made his way towards the stairs.

Faline played with her hair and carefully took it out of the tight bun it had been raveled in, it falling in curly waves around her shoulders, "I like Faline. Don't you?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 05:02:15 PM
“A name is a name,” Elisha said. “I don’t put much stock in it.” It wasn’t entirely true, but it’s what she was going with.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:05:01 PM
Faline nodded and then straightened her legs out, laying back on the bed, "Where are we going?" she asked curiously.

Post by: Mara-la on January 09, 2019, 05:10:09 PM
“Truth be told, I only have a vague idea,” Elisha lied. “I suppose we’ll find out together.” Maybe she could make an ally out of this reformed Faline.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:11:12 PM
Casiel dug his fingers into his palms. He wanted to follow him, he realized. He got up suddenly but then stopped himself. What was he doing? He looked away, biting his cheek. He needed to stop acting so brashly or everything would fall to pieces.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:13:11 PM
"You don't know where we're traveling?" Faline asked, turning and looking at her, "Do you know where we are now?" 

Giovanni turned back as he heard Casiel's chair move suddenly. He raised an eyebrow at him and when he saw him looking away, he took a deep breath, "Are you alright?"

“Somewhere in France,” she said. It wasn’t a lie. “Do you speak French at all?”

"Not really, no," Casiel admitted. "But I'm probably just tired and..." Confused. "I should head to bed. I'll see you in the morning," he said, stepping past Gio and up the stairs.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:26:52 PM
Faline shook her head and then smiled very big, "Really? France? I...I never thought I'd leave the Isle."

Gio watched him go past and headed upstairs behind him. As they got up into the hallway with their three rooms, he took a moment to look around. "Wait...Cas..." he said quietly then opening the hallway's lamps' light and blowing it out. Extinguishing the light left them alone in the dark in the hall. Carefully, he took Casiel's hands in his, "I don't regret what happened earlier either." he whispered quietly.

“Me neither, honestly,” Elisha mused. “I always wanted to but it was never really an option.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:31:30 PM
Faline nodded and then yawned largely. She laid down in the bed finally and pulled the blanket tightly to herself, "Good night Elisha."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:37:42 PM
"Well it's nice to know you aren't upset with me," Casiel replied, his wry smile evident even in the dark with the tone of his voice. He squeezed Gio's hands, suddenly unsure of how to act now that all of the adrenaline and animalistic instincts had left him. He was unsure of himself, as he usually was.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:40:22 PM
Gio was going to let him just go, but that subtle way Casiel squeezed his hands. He...he just felt it was an assurance he was doing the right thing. He carefully brought one of his hands up, holding Casiel's jaw and then leaned down, pressing his lips to his. He closed his eyes, sliding his other arm snaking around Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 05:49:38 PM
He was surprised at first, but pleasantly so. Casiel brought his hands up to frame Gio's face as he kissed him back fully. His old life and memories be damned. He broke their kiss after a while, breathing hard and grinning like an idiot. "So..." he said dumbly. "I guess this is a development."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 05:54:41 PM
Giovanni was breathing just as hard and kept his nose pressed close to Casiel's, nuzzling it gently before he put both arms around Cas. "I suppose you are right," he told him, unsure what else to say. He then slid his arms off of Casiel, opening his eyes and stepping back, his hands still on Cas' hips, "I'll see you in the morning then." he said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 06:00:13 PM
"Morning, yes, right," Casiel whispered, nodding to himself, clearly a little frazzled. He hesitated for a moment before kissing Gio one last time, then stepped back and headed for his room. "Goodnight, Giovanni."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 09, 2019, 06:02:30 PM
Giovanni chuckled at him and the way he suddenly seemed so all over the place. Gio's eyebrows perked up as Casiel gave him one last kiss and then let him go. He stepped away as well, "Good night Casiel." he said and then headed into his own room, laying in his bed as soon as he arrived and laid there, staring at the ceiling, smiling like an idiot.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 09, 2019, 06:13:32 PM
Cas crept into his room, passed Mateline (careful not to wake her) and then curled up in his own bed, head spinning. He was still confused, truth be told, but strangely content at that moment. This... this felt right.

[lol my cat woke me up early on my day to sleep in, so guess that’s me]

Mateline awoke early the next day, for once feeling refreshed instead of scared. It was a new step in their journey, without being actively pursued. She even felt closer to Casiel, which she never imagined could happen she was filled with hope, humming as she got up and started to make the bed. Casiel, her brother, Gio, like a brother, and Elisha, the closest thing she had to a sister. The family she had longed for for so long she finally had.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 03:59:06 AM
Elisha was up at dawn, not having slept well once more. She was beginning to wonder if she’d ever sleep well again. She crept out of the room, not wanting to wake Faline, and made her way outside for some air.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 04:05:13 AM
Casiel was sprawles out on his bed, snoring rather loudly, in a deep sleep. Despite the events of the past few days, the previous night had put his mind completely ease.

He was awoken when Mateline started moving around, fixing her bed, snorting softly as he was pulled from sleep. He yawned, rubbing his eyes as he sat up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:07:58 AM
Gio got up from his bed and looked over to Henry to make sure he was still there before he went over and inspected his things. They could definitely stand to pack more food and find out how to get to the Italian border. He was heading down to the tavern to see about breakfast when he ran into Faline in the hall. She had easily slid away from her own room the moment Elisha left and looked down, guilty as she found herself in front of Gio. He sighed, "You want to see Henry." Faline nodded and then smiled at Gio moved out of her way. "He's still asleep," he warned and then headed downstairs.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 04:14:32 AM
Despite sleeping well Casiel was reluctant to get up. It took all of his willpower to drag himself out of bed, haphazardly fix the sheets, then pull his boots on. He shuffled downstairs, seeking food, and nearly ran into Gio. "Oh, hey, sorry," he stammered, taking a step back. Once again he doubted himself, as if the intimate moment between them that previous night had been nothing more than a dream.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 04:24:45 AM
Henry had never slept so deeply in his life. It was like plunging into the depths of the sea; there was no light or sound. He felt like he was floating in a sea of nothingness. but then his mind was assaulted by a torrent of visions, one after another. He tossed and turned on the bed, his face contorted in a troubled expression, his forehead glistening.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:32:14 AM
Gio looked at Cas for a long moment and then flushed and looked down, “Good morning,” he said quietly and then looked around them at all the people. All the people who would report them or run them out of town. He took a step back, “I was just going to find breakfast. You?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 04:36:54 AM
"Yeah, same here," Cas replied awkwardly, also wary of the people around them, like they'd report the two of them just for talking. "Would you care to join me? If you'd like, that is."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:38:43 AM
Gio gently brushed his fingers along Cas' hand for just a moment and nodded, "I would enjoy spending the morning with you," he said quietly and then walked past him, heading out into the town to find someone with food.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 04:50:14 AM
They made their way to the marketplace, the streets full of people mingling, working, and selling their wares. Casiel found a stand selling fresh fruit and was about to get them free breakfast when he paused, realizing that Gio wouldn't approve. "I don't have any money," he grumbled to himself, searching his pockets as if a coin would appear.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:56:02 AM
The woman behind the stand looked at Gio and Cas and felt pity for them. She assumed they were travelers and with the one man searching for money and the other looking awful with holes and giant stains on his tunic, she simply put together a basket with some fruit and a bag of oats and handed it to them, speaking in French. Giovanni replied back to her easily, thanking her for her generosity and then looked at Cas and said low, "We need to find new clothes. She thought we were vagabonds."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:13:13 AM
Casiel looked down, inspecting his clothing. Dirty, bloody, sweaty, and with several tears throughout. "Guess we definitely look the part." And hadn't Elisha said something about them needing new clothes? "I'm sure if we wander around town we'll find an unguarded clothes line somewhere."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:20:06 AM
Giovanni nodded and carried their basket of food as they walked through town together. He looked at Casiel for a long moment and smiled to himself. He was glad to have time to just wander around with him without so much tension between them. He cleared his throat before looking forward, "Would you be upset if we never discover who you were?" he asked quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:34:31 AM
Casiel stopped walking for a moment, brow furrowing as he thought it over. "Yes," he admitted. "Only because not knowing is... frightening." He looked up at Gio, smiling at him. "But whoever I was then isn't going to affect who I am now. I promise."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:39:15 AM
Gio looked at him and nodded, glad for the comforting smile, but then took a deep breath, "Do you think...perhaps you took your memory away?" he asked as he continued to walk, "Look what you did to Faline to stop her. You cleared away the bad and now she's harmless. What if that's what happened to you? You cleared away something awful?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:42:34 AM
<**smart boy ;)**>

Casiel opened his mouth to speak, but no words came. So he stood there, gaping like a fish, dumbfounded. "But that... no, I couldn't have. That means I wiped everything prior to the last two years. Everything." He shivered. Had something so awful happened to him that he'd opted to getting rid of all of his memories? His entire identity?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:03:34 AM
ooooooh)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:12:00 AM
(Oh, as soon as you mentioned wiping Faline of being an assassin, I realized that might be it)

 Giovanni simply looked at him worried, "But what if that is what you did?" he said and stopped, turning to Casiel, "And what if you never meant for yourself to remember?" He suddenly realized how selfish he sounded. "I...I know it's important to you and that when we find out, it may not change everything, but Faline..." he looked towards the tavern, "Faline is better, right?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 06:20:51 AM
"I'm pretty sure Faline is scared of her own shadow, now," Casiel grumbled. He looked down at his hands, lost in thought for a moment. This new development was... upsetting. "It's not like I could return my memories even if I wanted to. I've no idea what I'm supposed to be remembering."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:26:49 AM
Giovanni nodded at him and then sighed, "I'm sorry. I shouldn't have even said anything, just was thinking out loud." He began back towards the tavern, "I'll see if the man at the tavern will cook the oats for us. Will you find us some clothes? You can use your ability if you need."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 06:44:07 AM
"Right," Casiel said, clearly distracted. "I'll see you back there in a bit." He turned to leave, seeking out a change of clothes for all of them. It didn't take that long as he found what looked to be a network of communal clothes lines and several women putting away their washing. A few altered memories here and there and he left with his arms full of fabric, various clothing for both the men and women. He headed back to the tavern, but slowed down as he approached, thinking about Giovanni's revelation. Had he altered his own memories? He'd always assumed that his amnesia had something to do with the person he wanted revenge on, who ever they were. But if he'd altered his own mind, then why did he hate that mystery person so much?

He entered the tavern after a while, sack of clothing hung over his shoulder.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 08:11:09 AM
Gio was sitting at a table in the tavern, slicing up fruit as the a bar maid was cooking their oats into porridge behind the counter. He looked up at Casiel came back inside and smiled at him genuinely and then chuckled at the big bag of clothes, "I see you were successful." He motioned to the plate of fruit in front of him, "Do you enjoy apples, peaches and grapes? The French are pretty proud of their vineyards."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 08:50:21 AM
"That all sounds delicious," Casiel said, eyeing the food as if in awe, setting the back on the ground as he took a seat. "I managed to find clothing for all of us, inlcuding warmer cloaks just to be safe."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:19:47 AM
Mateline came downstairs, having decided to take some time alone to try and figure out her life, what her own personal plan was. Everyone wanted something for themselves, and she realized just how desperately she wanted to have a family. With that in mind, she stepped outside, spotting Elisha and going to stand beside her. “Sleep well?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 10:21:56 AM
"Not really. I don't know that I'll ever sleep again," she said. She turned to Mateline. "You?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:27:45 AM
“I actually slept very well,” she admitted feeling guilty knowing that Elisha didn’t. “It’s such a relief to not feel threatened for a moment.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 10:32:14 AM
"Yeah," Elisha said. "Yesterday was a touch out of control, but at least we now have a healer back in our midst, even if we have to endure the memory-less woman." She paused, trying to think of conversation. She had to get better at this. "How was sharing a room with Cas? Do you have that brother-sister bond?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:33:55 AM
Mateline frowned, a little concerned that she was so obvious. “Unfortunately not. He hated me less though. He just seems so detached from everything,” she admitted sheepishly. “I don’t think he feels how I do.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 10:39:27 AM
"Well, he certainly feels some kind of way to another one of our travel companions," Elisha said. "I can't believe they were so brash." It had set in later, her complete awe of their blatant display of emotion.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:43:09 AM
She nodded, frown deepening. “Yeah that was quite a dangerous move there. I fear if they’re not careful they will get us all into some trouble.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 10:49:02 AM
"Where are they now?" Elisha asked. Mateline had come out here alone, which either meant that Cas was still asleep, or had gone out somewhere. And if the latter were true, he was likely with Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:51:22 AM
“I’m not sure, Cas left early and I haven’t seen Gio. They can’t have gone far.” She stared around, finally meeting Elisha’s eyes after a moment. “What do you want out of all of this?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 10:54:36 AM
Elisha thought about it. "I... I don't really know," she said. Something told her she needed to delve deeper. "I thought I wanted a family," she said. "But after I met my father, my birth father... my mother was gone, I'd killed my other father, and Zeus wanted nothing to do with me. The time I've spent on my own has shown me that family is not what I crave. But I do want to do right in this world, and I thought that I was on the right path to do that. I thought taking out people who caused others harm was that path. But now the Fates have presented me with this opportunity, with all of you, and perhaps that is the path I have sought for so long."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 10:57:11 AM
“You don’t plan to leave then?” Mateline asked hopefully, eyes flashing greedily. Elisha has mentioned the very thing she craved so much and it excited her. “I mean you plan to stay with me - us?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 11:01:06 AM
"Not for the time being," Elisha said, eyeing Mateline curiously. "And you? What's your purpose in this travelling troupe?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 11:05:45 AM
“I want to find my father, learn who I really am,” she began, eyes turning glassy. Hades, the most likely father, had never paid her any visits, but she still had this hope that it was some mistake or perhaps that he never visited people. “I want family,” she added. “It’s why I can’t seem to stop hoping that Cas will see me as more than just some scared child. And you and Gio...you’re at least my cousins, yes?” She thought of Gio as a brother already, and she hoped Elisha considered her more.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 11:54:47 AM
“Yes, cousins indeed,” Elisha mused. She hasn’t really thought about it, but she supposed they were all related, some more distantly than others. Mateline and Cas, as Hades children, would be first cousins right there. Gio she was sure how far. And she supposed, if her knowledge was correct, Henry would be her half-nephew. How strange.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 11:57:01 AM
“I’d just like to imagine we’re all slowly forming a family together,” she went on, babbling a little. “I’ve not had a family of my own in quite some time and it would just make everything worth it to know my family and have people like you in my life.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 01:06:19 PM
“People Like us?” Elisha chuckled a bit. “So, two amnesiacs, a killer for hire, a wanting-to-be knight, and whatever the heck Henry would be?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 01:49:18 PM
Casiel noticed the girls standing at the base of the stairs. He got up and approached them, bringing the clothes with him. "I've a change of clothes for all of us," he told them. "I'm not much of a fashion expert unfortunately so you'll have to make due. Also," he nodded back to where Giovanni was. "We got breakfast, if you're hungry."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 02:06:39 PM
Gio went and fetched the oatmeal porridge  from the bar maid and spoke to her for a good amount of time. He then brought the pot and some bowls and spoons over and looked at their team. “Ah, morning girls. You’ll be happy to know that we’re trading our old clothes for some blankets the inn no longer is in need of. The next town isn’t for three days, so it seems we’ll be doing some camping” he told them, trying to make it sound cheerful.

Faline sat down beside Henry in his bed and carefully ran her fingers through his hair, “Please wake up.” She whispered and then gently shook him
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 02:24:23 PM
Henry felt trapped; he could hear Faline and felt her shake him but he just couldn't get to her. Every time he would come close, another vision would pull him back. He whimpered a bit in his involuntary sleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 02:27:58 PM
Mateline took one of the dresses, shamelessly grabbing the prettier one. It wouldn’t fit perfectly, but she could make it work. “Thank you. Camping? Out in the wilderness?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 02:33:16 PM
Elisha reached for the other outfit, a pair of men's pants and a shirt. She could hem them so they'd fit her. "That's how camping works," she said to Mateline. Then, to the boys, "do we have any means of shelter in case of inclement weather?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 03:36:32 PM
"What do you think?" Casiel replied with a wry smile. "As far as I know we're just winging it until we get to Greece."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 03:48:22 PM
(All my gaming friends are away, so I'm around tonight and can be up late because no work tomorrow!)

"I think we'll have to make due with whatever we find in the woods. I can always turn the cart over and prop it against a tree. I think I'm going to hook both of the horses to the cart, should make the weight easier for them and that way only one of us has to ride on each horse instead of two," Gio said confidently as he started to pour the oatmeal into the bowls, "Go change and then eat up. Casiel, if you go change first, I'll go after so you can watch our food."

Faline shook Henry harder and her heart pounded as he didn't move to wake. She clapped her hands, she took a candle and lit it, putting his palm over top for a few seconds to see if he'd wake from the pain. She put the candle back and blew it out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 03:52:00 PM
(i'm kinda tempted to just leave him like this so I don't have to deal with him tomorrow when I'm at work :P)

Henry showed no signs of waking, though he felt the pain from the flame burning his hand; his eyes simply twitched in response. He was trapped in the same vision; of him dying. Even though he had chosen to join Gio, Cas, Mateline and Elisha...they were still going to kill him in the end; nothing had changed. He was trapped, witnessing it again and again.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 03:57:11 PM
(Omg, I see you on the forum all day anyway, posting on other RPs. :P )

Faline didn't know what to do. She just held his hand and looked at the door, nervous that the others would come back and try to hurt Henry while he was asleep.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 03:58:50 PM
<**yay!!**>

Casiel nodded, bounding upstairs with the clothes he had picked up. They were nothing special, but clean and free of holes. As he was leaving the room he stopped and caught a look at his reflection- his hair was a mess and the stubble around his mouth and chin was growing out of control. He attempted to smooth down and tie his hair back, figuring that was the least he could do to make himself look like less of a beggar, then went back downstairs again to where the others were.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:03:32 PM
Giovanni smirked as he noticed the subtle changes in Casiel's appearance. He kept his eyes low and when Casiel returned to the table, he motioned to a bowl, "Eat up. I'll be right back." he said and grabbed a new, dark blue tunic and some pants before heading upstairs and changing. He went into his room, but saw Faline sitting there with Henry and frowned a little. Faline was broken and she seemed to just care about this one person. He closed the door to the room and then went into Elisha's room instead, since Faline wasn't there.

(The siggie somaursaults for whatever reason looked like a bowling ball transforming into a chicken wtf)

Elisha took some of the oats. It had been a while since she last ate, she realized, so it made sense she was so hungry. “Should someone go check on Henry and the amnesiac?”

okay okay, whatever. I'm bored right now anyway)

Henry couldn't take it any longer. he couldn't watch himself die one more time! He just wanted to wake and be with Faline.
"No more" he muttered in his sleep. He desperately fought for consciousness, squeezing Faline's hand tightly

Cas took a seat at the bar, digging into his oatmeal like a man starved. In a way he was almost reluctant to head out again, especially knowing they'd be surviving in the wilds for a while, but he wasn't about to give up yet. Not when he was so close to finding out the truth. He looked at Elisha. "Did... did someone leave them alone together?" he asked, immediately standing up.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:14:07 PM
Faline got wide eyes and nodded, "Wake up Henry. Please. No more sleeping. It's time to be here. I'm sure the others will be leaving soon and want us to move with them."

Giovanni took off his tunic and pants and went over to a bowl and pitcher on the drawers, washing himself of all the blood that had been left on his skin after being healed. He looked at himself in the glass and was surprised to see there were barely scars, especially from his chest wound. He pulled his pants back on and tied on his boots over top.

Casiel wandered upstairs to check on their reluctant companions. He knocked on the door frame, still standing out in the hallway. "Ah, Faline? Is... everything okay?" It felt odd, being civil with her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 04:33:17 PM
He was so close to reaching her. The scene of his death replayed again but Henry was not going to let it finish. "NO!" he cried out, his eyes finally flying open.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 04:34:20 PM
Mateline headed upstairs to change into her new clothes, catching a glance at herself in the mirror and looking away quickly. Her hair was a tangled mess and she just looked like she hadn’t slept or eaten properly in days. Determined to look out together, she ran her fingers through her hair until it was back to a clean state and rubbed her face down with water to try and bring back some life, pinching her cheeks for a flush. She forced herself to stand straighter in the new dress, a sunny yellow that she normally would never wear. It was very conspicuous.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 04:36:18 PM
Once Elisha was done eating, she headed up to her room, only to find the door closed. She knocked on it, "who's in there?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:37:33 PM
Faline turned and looked at the door. She got up from the bed, reluctantly letting Henry's hand go and came to the door, opening it slowly and peering at Casiel through it, "Henry..won't wake up. I think he's having a vision." she told him. Then she heard him awaken and turned around, eyes lighting up. She left the door open as she ran back to Henry and threw her arms around him, straddling his waist with her knees. "You scared me!"

Gio came out of Elisha's room after putting on the blue tunic and put his hands up, "Sorry. Was just changing. Faline is in my room." He then saw Casiel standing in the hallway, raising his eyebrow, he leaned in the door frame and watched him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 04:40:18 PM
Elisha nodded. She headed into her room. She carefully removed her cloak, setting it aside. She would wash it later, stitch the small hole in it. She was not leaving it behind. She looked around the room; usually in places like these, there was a sewing kit. She pulled at one of the drawers and found some thread and a couple needles. She put on her new clothes, which consisted of men's pants and a shirt. She quickly hemmed the pants so that they would fit her, and tied off the shirt so it was a little more fitted so that she wouldn't look like a cross dresser. She put her cloak back on over it. With a quick glance in the mirror, she vowed to get proper clothes elsewhere.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 04:43:46 PM
Henry breathed hard and held onto Faline, "I...I'm okay," he whispered, trying to assure her and maybe himself. That had been one of most terrifying experiences of his life.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 04:45:12 PM
Casiel rolled his eyes, clearly not caring about whatever Henry had just gone through. "We have clean clothes and food, whever you want to get yourself out of bed," he said, then turned to leave.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 04:48:36 PM
Faline held tightly to him as well and then kissed his forehead before pulling away. She slid down to sit on the edge of the bed and then stood up, "Someone came to check on us. I'm sure we'll be expected to leave soon." she told him. She listened to Casiel and then smiled at Henry, "Clean Clothes and Food sounds nice. At least they're being kind to us."

Gio had gone downstairs to watch the food when he realized they'd all come up. He was sitting at the table, eating some oats and an apple.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 04:51:20 PM
Elisha headed back down to the food. The upstairs area was getting too crowded, and personally, she preferred the open air. She made her way over to where Gio was sitting and took one of the apples, biting into it. It boggled her mind how even just a day ago, she was not even willing to talk to him, but now here she was, sitting with him, being civil. It was easier than she had expected and she did not like that.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 04:52:00 PM
Henry sat up slowly, running his hands through his hair. He didn't care how 'nice' they were being; he still felt like a prisoner that had to be constantly watched and it did not change the future. They were going to kill him. "Yes, very kind," he muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:00:16 PM
Giovanni looked up at Elisha and smiled, "Are you up for a day of riding side by side with me until nightfall?" he asked her with a chuckle.

Faline watched Henry and frowned a bit, but then leaned over, kissing his cheek before she got up, "I'm going to go get clothes for us and then I'll be back up, okay?" she said and then headed downstairs. She passed Casiel and eyed him carefully before going through the pile. She took a dress from the pile, being a verdant green, and then a pair of pants and a tan tunic she thought would fit Henry. She brought then back upstairs and then flushed as she looked at him, "Henry, are we...." she paused, trying to remember, but then shaking her head, "Are we married? Or...I just only want to know if it's proper for me to change in the same room as you. I can't...seem to find in my mind...what our relation is."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:03:37 PM
Mateline did some sewing work on the dress so that it would fit more closely to her small body before heading back downstairs to her waiting food, eagerly digging in without a glance at the others. She was far hungrier than she had realized.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:04:22 PM
Casiel had returned downstairs to his previously-abandoned bowl of oatmeal, once again shoveling it into his face. When he saw Mateline he waved her over, then pointed at the food.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:06:17 PM
Mateline smiled and brought her food over to sit beside Cas. “I’ve given it some thought,” she said in a low voice. “And perhaps our father doesn’t speak to mortals. But perhaps we could summon him. With the spirits.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 05:07:46 PM
Henry looked over at her, cheeks quickly turning red, "oh...no, no we are not married. We..." he trailed off, not really sure what to tell her. He did not know what they were. He knew that he cared for her considerably though. "I...don't think that would be appropriate," he said uncertain.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:10:43 PM
Father? He was confused for a moment, before it hit him. "Oh, right." He looked around. There were a few spirits around; there always were. "You think they could relay a message?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:12:23 PM
“If they come to us, they must come to him as well,” she said matter of fairly. “I never asked if you wanted to meet him, I just...I really do. I want to know where I come from.” Mateline looked to him hopefully. “And since they don’t tend to listen to me well, I could really use your help.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:13:43 PM
Faline looked at him and nodded before putting the clothes down beside him and then leaving the room to change in the one she'd slept in. She took off the pants and the strange tunic with the metal hole in the front, that she didn't know was meant to hold a dagger. She then cleaned off her boots before pulling the deep green dress over her head. She let her hair down around her shoulders, coming it through with her fingers before coming back to stand by Henry's room, waiting for him before going to breakfast with the others.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:17:30 PM
Casiel bit into his lip. He didn't know why, but something told him trying to contact Hades would be a very, very bad idea. "I guess we could try," he said softly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:19:13 PM
Gio looked up at them and at Elisha and played with his oatmeal, "If I'm also a demigod," he started quietly, "Who do you think is my father?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:19:24 PM
Mateline tried to contain the giddy smile that broke out on her face. “We don’t have to do it now. Perhaps when we’re out of the city? More isolated.” Just to be safe.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 05:21:31 PM
Elisha eyed Gio, trying to figure it out. “I would say Aphrodite, but you knew your mother.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:23:01 PM
"Who's she?" Gio asked as he continued to eat. He didn't know much about these Greek gods.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:24:16 PM
"Definitely out of the city," Casiel said in a low voice. "Can't be drawing any attention to ourselves." Especially not after the stunt he'd pulled the previous day.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 05:26:08 PM
Henry changed into the clothes and met Faline outside of the room; it felt wonderful to be rid of those dirt and blood-stained garments. His eyes settled on her and his breath caught in his throat, "you look very nice," he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 05:28:37 PM
“She’s the goddess of love and beauty,” Elisha explained. “I don’t know a lot about her, mostly just from texts I’ve come across when I first started looking into all this. I was just thinking that the way you charm people, it could be in keeping with her.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:29:29 PM
At his comment, Matty’s eyes flicked to Gio. “No we can’t.” She finished her oatmeal, sitting back. “I know I’m not much, but if you ever need to talk about...” once again she looked at Gio. “About anything, please don’t hesitate to come to me.” She cared about him too much to let something like who he had relations with matter. She wanted him to know.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:31:50 PM
"Did I not before?" Faline teased him and then headed downstairs. She looked at all the others, gathered around a table and eating breakfast.

Gio looked up at Faline and he looked genuinely surprised, "Huh," he said, surprised to see Faline looking so...feminine. Almost very pretty, not so hostile and threatening. He then turned to Elisha and smirked a little, "Love and Beauty sounds a little like me I suppose. And Elisha, do you find me charming?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:33:32 PM
"Nothing to talk about," Casiel muttered, back to eating once again. "You should eat something, too," he told her. "We've a long journey ahead of us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 05:35:42 PM
He did have a charm to him yes, but Elisha would never admit it. “You’re irritating, in a borderline pleasant way,” she said instead, the corner of her mouth twitching into a teasing grin. It had been a long time since she’d teased anyone.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 05:37:28 PM
(every time you guys say Matty all I can think about is Mathew...)

Henry rolled his eyes, "You did, but this is...different," he said, not sure he liked the look as much. As she reached the others, all gathered around the table he felt like an outsider; he felt rage burning inside as he thought about his vision. They would never forgive or trust him again; he would always be the traitor to them.

Gio chuckled and smiled, "Good, glad to know it's pleasant in the very least." he then looked to Faline, "Eat. You're welcome."

Faline came closer and carefully reached past Elisha, "Good morning," she said as she took a bowl and some grapes. She then went to sit at the table beside them, slowly eating, feeling she didn't belong with them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 05:42:47 PM
it's driving me mental!
also...I miss Xander :P)


Henry reluctantly grabbed some food and sat down beside Faline, purposefully keeping his eyes averted from the others.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:44:38 PM
Mateline gave him a look that said she knew there was something to talk about, but dropped it as she continued to eat more. “Gio is very charming,” she piped up, overhearing Gio and Elisha’s conversation.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:46:19 PM
"You could say that again," Casiel said with a small smirk, not looking up from his bowl.

<**you always miss Xander :P**>
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:48:44 PM
Faline turned to Henry as they ate and then sat up straighter, "Where are we going?"

Gio looked at the two of them and rolled his eyes, "My great defenders." He elbowed at Mateline, "What do you think? Am I the son of the Aphr--" he paused and shook his head, "No...wait...Elisha, it's my father, not my mother who's the god."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 10, 2019, 05:51:18 PM
“I know,” Elisha said. “That’s why I was saying it didn’t make sense because you knew your mother. But she’s the only one I could think of. Maybe your her grandchild as opposed to child?”

(Night guys)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 05:52:10 PM
Henry shrugged, "Greece eventually?" he said, eyeing the others, "How they plan to get there, I haven't the slightest idea"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 05:52:58 PM
"There's also Eros, god of desire," Casiel said suddenly. He set his bowl down, confused suddenly. How... how had he known about that?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 05:56:54 PM
Faline looked at Henry and got wide eyes, "All the way to Greece? I never even expected to be here in France, much less go all the way to somewhere like Greece. That's nearly across the continent."

Giovanni looked over at Casiel and thought at first he was joking because of their 'development' but then he had a part of his mind that seemed to clear up, like he was coming into his own. He looked at all the other and then nodded, "That...that sounds right."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 10, 2019, 05:57:33 PM
[im going to bed too]

Mateline stared at him in surprise. He seemed to know quite a bit more than he was letting on. Though he also seemed surprised by the revelation. “How did you know that?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:00:46 PM
"I never expected to ever leave my farm," Henry admitted
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:03:05 PM
Faline looked at him and smiled softly, "Eat up. I'm sure we'll be traveling all day if we're to make it to Greece." she told him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 06:06:22 PM
'I... I don't know," Casiel stammered, pushing his bowl away, suddenly not hungry. "It just came to me suddenly. But I... I don't know anything about Greek mythology."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:09:23 PM
Henry nodded, though did not appear very thrilled with the idea. He shovelled in food until he could not eat another bite, "I am never healing a wound that bad again, so you four better not go and acquire any more life-threatening injuries," he grumbled irritably.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:14:08 PM
Gio was enjoying hearing that Casiel was gaining knowledge from no where when he heard Henry grumble. He looked over at him and tilted his head, "I'm sorry, but do you want to remind me how I obtained such a wound?" his eyes glancing at Faline and then back to Henry.

Faline didn't see Gio look at her and finished up her breakfast.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 06:17:56 PM
Casiel reached over and put his hand over Gio's to calm him, then immediately pulled away, wondering if he was being too forward again.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:19:20 PM
Henry glared, “well it wasn’t me,” he fired back. How was he going to travel with these people? It would drive him mad! He breathed in deeply, trying to calm down and remind himself that he really had no other choice.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:28:33 PM
Giovanni felt a wave of calm as Casiel's hand was over his for that moment, but then he just felt disappointment as it was pulled away and as Henry shouted he rolled his eyes, "Great. Sorry we just wanted some help. And look what you got in return. A free ride to Greece for you and your girl."

Faline blushed slightly and looked away, not sure if she liked being referred too as just "Henry's girl", especially since Henry hadn't really explained how they knew each other. She looked at Henry then, "Please...don't shout. We don't have to be enemies."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:35:52 PM
Henry held his tongue at faline’s request; what was the point of  arguing? It wouldn’t change anything. Henry looked away from Gio, turning instead to faline, “no, I suppose not,” he relented. At the back of his mind what’s the constant reminder that one of them would kill him in the end. How could they ever be anything but villains?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:38:33 PM
Faline reached over and placed her hand over Henry's and looked at him, "We're going to be okay."

Seeing Faline being so casually physically with Henry just made things worse. He got up and pushed in his chair a little harshly. "I'm going to bridle the horses and get the blankets from the bar maid." he told the others and headed towards the door.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:46:31 PM
Henry looked down at her hand on his sadly; he knew it wouldn’t be okay. Why did he have to be cursed with knowing what was to come? It didn’t seem fair. “I’m going to die,” he admitted, not wanting to give her false hope. “That was my vision”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:50:35 PM
Faline looked at Henry and her eyes searched his before she squeezed his hand, "Henry...if you can see the future, can't you change it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 06:52:12 PM
"I'll go with you," Casiel said, a little too eagerly. Of course he wanted to be around Gio, but being around Faline and Henry was also uncomfortable. There was still that bloodlust lurking underneath, and it wanted so badly for them to die. He ignored it though, and followed Gio outside.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 10, 2019, 06:54:23 PM
Henry sighed,”I can try; it’s not set in stone. I thought maybe us joing them would change it but it did not” Henry said, “I don’t know how to stop it” Henry said, sounding scared.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 06:57:24 PM
Gio started to pack up the cart and went up to the horses, gently petting them and giving them what was left of the oats. He looked at Casiel, who had followed, and smiled gently, "You especially can't hold my hand out here," he teased his quietly as they stood outside, in the open. The barmaid came with the blankets and winked at Gio, putting them down in the cart before coming over and handing him a large paper. She spoke to him in French and even if Casiel didn't understand her words, it was easy to see she was very fond of Gio. She giggled as she wandered away, back into the tavern.

Faline looked at him and chewed on her lip for a bit before speaking up, "What if it's me? Maybe...I should go back to wherever you found me. The place you said we can't go to."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 07:00:40 PM
Casiel glared at the woman, oddly possessive of Giovanni. It really wasn't fair. "I wish there was a place where we wouldn't have to hide," he said glumly. Then he noticed the paper. "What's that?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 07:11:31 PM
Gio looked at him and came closer to him, standing side by side as he opened the paper and revealed a map, "I asked her to find one for me. Her father traveled to the Ottoman empire and back, which is farther than where we're going," he noted. He then looked at Casiel as they stood closely, "I'm sure no one would watch if we were to find ourselves in the forest at night," he said and then motioned on the map, "See, the distance between here and the next two. She said three days. But her father traveled with a caravan of people, so we may make it in two."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 07:33:24 PM
Casiel grinned, both at seeing the map and at Gio's comment. Secret meetings, in the dark, under the stars? How scandalous. "Better make sure we bring enough food for the journey. Unless you know how to hunt," he said. Although when he thought about it, Gio probably did.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 07:38:29 PM
Gio looked at him, seeing his smile and holding up the map a little higher, stole a kiss for just the briefest moment before pulling away and putting the map down, packing it away. He put it in the saddle back of the tawny horse, who he'd grown fond of the day before and started to hitch the horse together, "So," he said, pretending like he hadn't just kissed Casiel a moment ago, "Of course I can hunt, but I feel the girls wouldn't be so entertained by the skinning and blood letting in that process. I know how to dress an animal though, so it may come in handy."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 10, 2019, 07:42:54 PM
Casiel smiled softly to himself, but did his best to act nonchalant, helping Gio with the horses. "It would definitely be useful," he said. "And... maybe some of our abilities would help, in regards to hunting?" He was certain that they could all find creative ways to survive.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 10, 2019, 07:48:54 PM
"I think it takes some of the fun, telling an animal to come to me and just lie down so I can kill it," Gio teased him and then looked through the blankets, "There's only five. I suppose Faline and Henry may want to share anyway." Gio looked at Cas, "It's odd right? That you took away everything terrible in her life and you'd think there'd be something other than Henry for her..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 02:31:18 AM
that is actually a very sad thought :( poor Faline)

Henry shook his head, "no...no you can't go back there Faline," Henry said, then taking her hands in his, "It's not safe for you there. Besides, I didn't see you there in my vision; whatever the reason, it is not your fault I die," Henry assured her.

Mateline stood and looked to Elisha. “I can’t believe we’re actually going to be camping,” she complained.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 03:13:24 AM
Elisha smirked. “It’s not so bad” she said. “At least you have people around you who know what it is they’re doing out in the woods.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 03:14:09 AM
“The woods are dangerous,” She grumbled. “It seems a little unnecessary if you ask me.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

“Trust me, people are far more dangerous than the creatures you find in the wood,” Elisha said. “They may try to kill you, yes, but it’s just instinctual. There’s no manipulation or plotting.”

Faline looked at him and then nodded, "Then I'll stay. Maybe...maybe I can help you. Maybe I try to stop whatever happens." she told him and squeezed his hands.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 03:49:24 AM
Henry smiled sadly, looking down at their hands, "Maybe," he replied, trying to be hopeful. He knew well that the future was not set in stone; there was hope.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 03:59:13 AM
Casiel shuddered involuntarily, thinking about the things he'd witnessed in her mind. "Honestly her life was pretty terrible. I'd feel bad if not for the fact that she tried to kill you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:05:31 AM
While they were alone, Gio decided he could ask, "You know...I told you that I can see and feel the connection between us," he said as he finally hitched the second horse up and looked to the tavern door. "But you didn't really mention why...you came onto me. I mean, you clearly have a hundred reason why you shouldn't." he mentioned casually.

Faline pulled her hands away and got up from the table, "I'm going to see if I can help some way with the horses. Are you alright here?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 04:09:04 AM
henry nodded, "Yes, I'll be alright here," he said, casting a weary glance over at the girls as he said it.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:12:34 AM
Casiel shrugged, finding himself blushing. "I guess... I don't know. I felt something there, between us," he said softly. "I don't really know how to explain it. And I admitted that I found you attractive, did I not?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:24:11 AM
Gio smiled at him and nodded, "I think you were half saying it, sort of avoiding what you really meant." He then looked up from the cart as Faline came outside. He furrowed his brow, but she put her hands up, "Can I help you?" she asked. Gio took a breath and then nodded, watching Faline as she brushed their manes and checked their ears and teeth. "Be good," Gio told Casiel as he went back inside. "Alright everyone," he called to the girls and Henry, "Time to head out."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:30:13 AM
Casiel shot a poisonous look at Faline but otherwise ignored her, double checking that the horses were solidly hooked up to the cart. It was unnerving, how pleasant she was. Who knew that with a few vanished memories her entire personality would change. Then it made him wonder, what kind of person had he been before?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:36:02 AM
Faline felt Casiel's glare and stood up taller, clearing her throat, "Elisha said I tried to kill you and that's why you all hate me and Henry." she said calmly, "But you made it so I don't remember any of that, didn't you?" she then looked at Casiel, "You have powers...like Henry's healing and visions."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:43:20 AM
Had Elisha told her everything? "And what if I do?" He said flatly. "You gonna report me?" He challenged.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:52:08 AM
"Report you to who?" Faline asked and looked at him confused, "Like...like a church?" she swallowed hard, "I think it's amazing."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 04:55:04 AM
Mateline breathes deeply and nodded. “Off we go into the great unknown.” She was sick of travelling, she just wanted to stay at the inn and not have to worry about where their next meal was coming from. “I wish there was an easier way to Greece.” She headed towards the horses.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:01:54 AM
Casiel frowned. He'd expected at least a little bit of hostility, but there was none whatsoever. He took a step back, rubbing the back of his head. "I mean... I guess it's pretty incredible," he said awkwardly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:10:16 AM
(Sometimes, when all the bad is removed, you have no reason to be hateful :P)

Giovanni took Mateline's hand as he led her to the cart and lifted her up inside, "It's going to be colder as we head inland and towards the mountains. Please keep warm." he told her and brushed her hair down. He smiled after looking her own, "The yellow is very becoming. As bright as your spirit Mateline."

Faline nodded at Casiel, but then timidly stepped around him, "And if I'm good now, you won't take away anything else?" she asked him, "And you won't hurt Henry?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 05:13:10 AM
Henry followed gio and the girl’s out to the cart; he was weary of the journey ahead, not knowing what would happen to lead to his death. Anything was possible. He eyed faline and cas carefully as he waited At the cart; he did not trust Cas one bit.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:17:35 AM
"If you don't give me a reason to, I won't hurt either of you," Casiel told her. He looked up, noticing Henry watching them. "Although you should let your boyfriend know that, too."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:20:23 AM
(I don't think boyfriend is a very 1500s term, but okay lol)

Faline nodded at Casiel, glad to hear it and then turned to see Henry and smiled gently. She came over to him and put her hands on his face before reaching up and nuzzling his nose with hers gently. He just filled her with so much joy and comfort. She pulled away and then used one of the wheels to get up into the cart.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:24:10 AM
<**I mean they're definitely not speaking modern english so let's pretend everything is being translated to that :P**>

Casiel fought back the urge to gag as he walked past them and over to Gio. "I think we're all ready to head out," he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 05:32:50 AM
Henry swallowed hard and felt his heart flutter. She was so different without all those bad memories; so innocent and sweet. He climbed up on the cart after her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:35:35 AM
Gio also felt contempt as he watched Faline's affections and then looked at Casiel as he came closer and chuckled at his expression. "I don't know which I preferred, the deadly assassin or this flighty romantic." He then looked at Elisha, "She's supposed to ride the other horse. I guess that leaves you in charge of the cart," he teased him and then handed him their bag of bread, the leftover fruit, a bottle of wine the barmaid gave to him as a parting gift, and some meat jerky he'd acquired at the market.

Faline sat beside Henry and watched Gio and Casiel carefully, looking to her companion, "They aren't brothers, right?" she had been otherwise occupied when they'd kissed the day before.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:38:49 AM
"I'd prefer them not to be around," Casiel grumbled. They did need a healer, though. That much was obvious. He took the food from Gio, finding a spot on the cart to keep it safe before climbing aboard himself and getting settled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:50:55 AM
Gio touched Casiel's back, giving him 'support' as he got into the cart and then headed to the front to get up on a horse, waiting for Elisha to get on too before heading out, beginning them on a journey southeast, to Italy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 06:16:02 AM
Mateline has flushed happily at Gios compliment and settled into the cart. Casiel got into the cart and well and she got comfortable. “This journey is never ending,” she commented.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 06:34:37 AM
Casiel got himself comfortable, stretching his legs out and crossing his arms over his chest. "It'll come to an end eventually," he said to Mateline. The thought was frightening though- what exactly would they do once their journey was over?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 06:46:01 AM
"I don't enjoy this journey," she admitted. "I am not one for this type of life. I've spent the whole time hiding away inside."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 06:49:27 AM
Faline looked at them all and took a deep breath, "What were you doing before you started the journey?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 07:02:10 AM
Mateline was still weary of Faline, but she had proven to be fairly harmless so she answered. “I worked as a seamstress,” she said. “It’s a good job for someone trying to hide. There was someone else who dealt with the public, I would spend my days in a room sewing.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 07:02:33 AM
"Barely thriving," Casiel said wryly, opting not to tell her about his own amnesia. "Getting up at dawn, working until dusk, drinking myself to sleep, and repeat." It was quite depressing the more he thought about it.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 07:05:19 AM
"Wow, that sounds like fun. Did you get to make a lot of your own creations?" Faline asked. She turned to Casiel and frowned a bit, "Oh. That's awful. I bet you're glad to be traveling with our group then."

Gio chimed in as well, "I was soon to be a royal knight. I suppose that won't come true now, but I enjoyed it very much, riding out, seeing the world, helping those in need."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 07:12:45 AM
“It was kind of a depressing way to spend my days,” Mateline admitted. “But safe. Safety was always my concern.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 07:27:38 AM
"Yeah, glad," Casiel said, glancing at Gio, before turning away, trying to hide his smile. Then Gio spoke and his smile fell. The man was giving up his dream to travel with a ragtag group of misfits.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 07:37:30 AM
Elisha mounted the horse beside Gio's. "It sounds like none of us, apart from our dear Giovanni, were doing much with our lives."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 08:20:21 AM
Faline looked at them all and smirked. They were quite the group. They all had their own skills and unique abilities. She put her arms around Henry's arm that was closest to her and leaned her head on his shoulder.

Gio smiled a little, hearing Cas admit he was glad to be with them.

(So shall we skip to setting up camp at nightfall?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 08:30:19 AM
<**yeah that sounds good to me. I'll get us started off**>

It was beginning to grow dark so they decided to stop for the night. Casiel hopped off of the cart, stretching and taking a look around. The forest they were in was dense, but that meant nightfall would be even darker than normal- he doubted the moonlight would break through to the forest floor. "I'm going to collect firewood," he announced.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 08:32:49 AM
Gio slid down off the horse and watched Casiel, wanting to go with him, but knowing he should stay and help the others set up. He helped Mateline and Faline out of the cart and then unhitched the horses, letting Faline take them down to a stream to drink and eat grass.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 08:43:50 AM
Elisha dismounted and headed over to Giovanni after seeing how he watched Casiel head off. "If you need to go with him, go," Elisha said quietly. "I'd rather not wake to the sound in the middle of the night to you two... just, make you bring back firewood, rather than just wood." Thoroughly uncomfortable, she walked around the area they were in, scoping it out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 08:47:38 AM
When he was away from the others, Casiel found a place to sit down for a moment. He had grown so accustomed to being alone that being a part of their little group, whatever you wanted to call it) was making him weary. He sat for a moment, lost in thought, when he noticed something along the forest floor. He stood up immediately, the hairs on the back of his neck rising as he started back to where the others were.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 09:00:45 AM
Gio smiled at Elisha but then gave her annoyed look, “You always have to take it just a little too far, don’t you? You couldn’t just leave it at I should go with him?” He teased and then jogged out into the wood to find Casiel. That’s when he saw him running back towards him and took him by his shoulders, raising an eyebrow, tilting his head as he saw him running, “What is it? Did you miss me so much?” He said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 09:17:58 AM
"Adorable," Casiel sneered. He would never get over Gio's sense of humour, not ever. Truly. "I spotted wolf tracks back that way," he said. "I think there's a pack in the area."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 09:27:33 AM
Gio looked past Casiel and then looked back, seeing how far away they were from the others and then slid his arms around Casiel,his voice low, “Are you afraid of wolves Casiel? I promise, I’ll protect,” he told him, looking down at him and with a subtle smile.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 09:38:58 AM
"Ha ha, very funny," Casiel grumbled, though he melted into the other man's arms. "On the contrary I love them. They're beautiful and powerful," he said flatly. "But they're also troublesome."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 09:44:46 AM
Giovanni looked at him and nodded, thinking Casiel wasn’t in the mood for flirtation. Or maybe he just wasn’t...ready for that yet. He started to pull away and looked around for logs, “So what should we do? How do we keep the wolves away? Big fire?” He asked.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 09:50:36 AM
Casiel took his hands, too stubborn to let him move away just yet. As awkward and unsure of himself as he was he... liked being held. "A fire ought to do it. And if anyone has to leave the area for whatever reason they should do so in pairs, just to be safe."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 09:54:34 AM
Gio watched as Cas took his hands and out his arms back as they had been and nodded, “S-sure.” He told him and then pulled him just a little closer, “Elisha was so vulgar, but encouraged me to follow you”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 09:55:21 AM
(of course she's vulgar, she gives 0 sh*ts)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 09:59:54 AM
"Would you not have followed me, if it weren't for her suggestion?" Casiel asked, eyebrow raised, wrapping his arms around Gio's shoulders. "I'm almost afraid to ask what you mean by vulgar," he laughed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 10:01:59 AM
“Well, she only said something because I was standing there, staring at you, wondering if I should,” Gio admit and then carefully brought his lips down to Casiel’s. He kissed him slow and sweet before whispering, “I’ve just been unsure of what you want.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 10:05:50 AM
Henry had climbed off the cart and followed faline down to the stream, not wanting to be left alone with the girls.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 10:07:10 AM
Faline looked at Henry and smiled, “It’s nice here. I don’t...I think I’ve spent a lot of time in the city. I can’t remember a lot of times in the woods like this”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 10:08:52 AM
Elisha made her way back over to Mateline. "What makes you most nervous about being out here?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 10:09:34 AM
Cas breathed out slowly, leaning into the kiss. When they broke away he pressed his forehead against Gio's. "Honestly I don't know what I want," he admitted. "This, all of it, is completely new to me. I know I want you, though."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 10:12:20 AM
Gio smiled brightly and then slowly let his arms fall away from Cas and just took his hand, “Come on we’ve got firewood to find,” he said, “And you shouldn’t mention the wolf tracks to the girls. Please,” he told him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 10:18:19 AM
Henry smiled in return then looked out at the surrounding forest, "Neither have I. It's actually quiet beautiful...and peaceful," Henry said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 10:25:39 AM
Faline nodded and when the horses were finished, started walking them back, “So were going to sleep on the ground?” She asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 10:27:22 AM
"I'm sure Elisha wouldn't care. She'd probably try to fight them," Casiel said, walking with him and picking up pieces of wood and branches as they went. "Gio," he said suddenly. "Are we going to be travelling near your home? Where you grew up?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 11:20:38 AM
Giovanni picked up some firewood as well, eventually letting go of Casiel’s hand as he began to have full arms. He turned to start to go back to the camp but stopped and looked at Casiel, “Is there anything else you needed before we head back?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 12:04:42 PM
"it seems that way," Henry said, not pleased with the idea but he supposed it was better than sleeping on a boat.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 01:45:36 PM
Casiel scowled. Fine, ignore my question why don't you? That only further cemented his belief that they were, in fact, going to be around his home. "Well, other than firewood..." Cas trailed off, wondering if kissing Gio counted as a need or a want.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 02:06:14 PM
(Does Gio have ties to the Medicis?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 02:28:45 PM
 (Uhhhhh I’m gonna say no. also, it’s not that Gio didn’t answer more like Mercedes forgot)

Faline looked at him and then caressed his cheek, “I’m worried about you sleeping again”

Gio tilted his head a little and then perked up, “Oh and yes! We are going through my hometown. I can show it to you on the map when we get back to camp.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 03:25:00 PM
Elisha made her way back over to Mateline. "What makes you most nervous about being out here?"

Mateline shifted uncomfortably, looking around them. “I don’t have skills like the rest of you seem to. If something attacks, my powers do nothing and I have no experience.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 03:26:38 PM
<**lol I figured, Cas was just being salty**>

That got Cas' attention. "How long has it been since you were last home?" He asked, genuinely curious. "Do you have other family there?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 03:53:33 PM
Gio tensed up and swallowed, "Um..." he rubbed his ear on his shoulder awkwardly and shrugged, "Sixteen years." he then looked up at the sky and shook his head, "And....no I don't have anyone else. Except my father."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 03:57:17 PM
Elisha nodded at Mateline's answer. She went over to a nearby tree, took out her knife, and marked an X into it. She went back over to Mateline, handing her the knife. "Hit the middle," she said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 04:01:16 PM
Mateline stared dumbly down at the knife in her hand. “I can’t...I’ve never thrown a knife before.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:02:12 PM
"That's quite a long time," Casiel replied softly. "And your father, he's...?" Cas trailed off, realizing he was prying. "Sorry, it's none of my business." He shifted around, adjusting the weight of the pile he was carrying. "We should head back."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:04:00 PM
"I've been on my own since then, since my mother died," Gio told him as they walked back and then looked at Casiel, "I don't know him. My father. I assume he's this Eros god, or one of the other gods, but I really have no idea. I never met him."

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 04:05:53 PM
"So you learn," Elisha said. "You won't just suddenly know how to do something unless you try it and practice. Do you think I grew up throwing knives or swinging a sword?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:08:25 PM
"Right, the god," Casiel muttered. "Does it... feel right, to you?" He asked suddenly. "Being the son of Eros, I mean. Being the son of Hades feels, I don't know, right in a way, but also sort of off." He shook his head, looking away. "I guess that really doesn't make much sense."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 04:08:55 PM
Mateline frowned and nodded. “Okay, so I just try?” She held the knife in one hand, testing out the feel and the weight of it.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:14:18 PM
(Elisha should stand behind her and teach her, like in Ghost or Princess Diaries 2)

"Being the son of the god of Desire would make a lot of sense," Gio told him and then smirked to himself, "I mean....a lot of sense."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:22:15 PM
"I really don't think so. You, desirable? Pfft," Casiel teased him, playfully nudging him with his elbow.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:23:50 PM
"You know, there's other men who have found me very desirable. Keep acting up, I'll tie you up for those wolves," Gio taunted and bit his teeth together at him playfully.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 04:24:01 PM
(dont kill me I haven't seen either of those)

"You just throw," Elisha said. "And, with time, practice, you'll get better at it. Unless you're blind, but I think you'd know that by now."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 04:24:26 PM

Faline looked at him and then caressed his cheek, “I’m worried about you sleeping again”


Henry was worried about it as well; he had never experienced being trapped like that before. He put his hand over hers, "There is no need to worry," he assured  her, "I must have over-exerted myself healing Gio. I lost control of my visions"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 04:26:21 PM
Mateline gave the other girl a tight smile and a nod. She threw the knife as hard as she could and watched as it flew far to the side of the tree. She trudged after it, dejected.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 04:30:03 PM
Casiel flashed him a crooked smile, growling low in his throat. "Oh, is that a threat?" he challenged. Just then howling sounded, the pack wandering the area sounding uncomfortably close.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 04:34:44 PM
"That wasn't a terrible first throw," Elisha said. "Just come back over here and try again." That was when she heard it: somewhere off in the not-too-far distance, a howl. "Mateline, come back over here, now," she said sharply. She didn't know where the other two pairs had wandered off to, but it was not good that they were all separated like this.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:35:24 PM
Gio looked Casiel over and raised his eyebrows but then looked up at  furrowed his brow, "We need to get this  fire made." he said and hurried back to the  campsite. He dug a small hole before he took some of the brush and his knife and a rock and tried to light a fire. He got sparks and eventually some the fire was going. He started to slowly apply logs.

Faline heard the wolf's cry and came closer to Henry, frightened at the sound. She looked around then anxiously.

Mateline was frozen in place, striken by fear. “Are those wolves?” She finally got up the courage to move and practically ran to Elisha’s side. She could already feel the panic setting in. She couldn’t protect against wolves!

Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 04:38:23 PM
"That they are," Elisha said slowly. "Your fire ability, can you control it at all? Summon it?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 11, 2019, 04:44:58 PM
Her heart felt like it might jump out of her chest. “I’ve never used it long range,” she said. “Only through touch.” She would have to try though, it was her only option.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 11, 2019, 04:45:33 PM
Henry looked around nervously as he heard the howls. He turned back to Faline, trying not to look at panicked as he felt. "We should get back to the others," Henry said, sounding calm despite his fear.

Casiel placed the leftover logs in a pile beneath a tree, where they'd be safe and dry. Afterwards he wandered to the edge of their little clearing just watching, listening.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 04:48:06 PM
Faline nodded and led the horses back, taking their saddles off and the bits from their mouth before she tied them to a tree nearby to the fire she saw Gio making.  She tossed the saddles into the cart and grabbed a blanket.

Gio looked over at Casiel and cleared his throat, "Don't wander off." he told him and then went to the cart, taking a blanket for himself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:07:27 PM
Casiel let out a sigh, then turned and walked back over to the fire. "Sorry, I was just... lost in thought," he murmured, sitting down.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:12:00 PM
Giovanni  looked around at the others, but then deciding he didn't care, got closer to Casiel and threw the other half of his blanket over him, sitting beside him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 11, 2019, 05:12:47 PM
(potentially dumb question but are Gio and Cas still off on their own or did they come back?)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:15:42 PM

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:26:14 PM
Casiel looked up at him, a little surprised, but definitely not displeased. He looked over at the others then figured he didn't care about their opinions before, so why start now? He leaned in close to Gio, resting his head on his shoulder.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 11, 2019, 05:29:06 PM
Gio looked felt Casiel's head there and smiled, reaching under the blanket to hold his hand again. He looked at Mateline and Elisha, wondering where they'd been off to. He kept his eyes up, watching for any flashes of the lights of eyes in the wood.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 11, 2019, 05:58:50 PM
"They're not going to come any closer," Casiel told him, rubbing his thumb along the back of Gio's hand. "And even if they did, you needn't worry; I'll protect you," he added cheekily.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 12, 2019, 01:37:50 AM
Mateline back up until they were back at the fire. “This is exactly what I was afraid of!” She hissed at Elisha.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 12, 2019, 02:41:18 AM
Now that they were back near the fire, it was probably less of a concern that wolves were out there. “The animals?” She asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 02:45:58 AM
Henry sat down by the fire, looking over at faline occasionally to make sure she was alright. He felt mildly anxious about the wolves but He supposed they would be alright as long as they stuck together.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 04:30:44 AM
Faline curled up in her blanket and sat near Henry, but not quite as cuddly as the men were. She felt like the odd one right now. They all had incredible gifts and dangerous powers and she was...merely a human girl with no memory of most of her life. She caught Henry's eyes when he looked over at her and swallowed, trying to make a smile, but then looked to the fire, gazing into it.

Giovanni watched the others come around the fire with them and his heart pounded a little, nervous they would say something that would make Casiel move. He was enjoying the intimacy. He closed his eyes once everyone was settled in.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 04:47:02 AM
Casiel closed his eyes as well, just trying to enjoy the moment, listening to the sounds of Gio breathing and the howling in the distance. When he opened them again he saw a dark shape darting around the treeline, just out view of the fire's light. "They're awfully bold," he commented.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 04:53:41 AM
Gio opened his eyes at Casiel's comment and raised an eyebrow, "Did you see one?" he asked and sat up a little more, squeezing Casiel's hand, "I wish I'd kept her bow and arrows instead of letting them sink." he muttered
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 05:07:17 AM
"I thought so, but I'm not sure," Cas replied, still staring into the darkness. "We probably should have brought more weapons with us."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 05:11:06 AM
(They have powers...do they really need weapons? :p)

Henry frowned when she looked away, her attempt at smiling not fooling him. He scooted closer, his arm brushing against hers, “you seem troubled,” he said quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 05:15:11 AM
"I don't belong here with the rest of you. You are want to go to Greece, discover who you are. You can do amazing things and I...." Faline looked down and then shrugged, "What am I do to if something goes wrong? If they try to hurt you? Against them...who am I?"

"Wolves aren't known to just attack and then food is tightly wrapped in the cart. None of us are bleeding. And if they try to attack the horses, that's a swift kick to the face I don't think any wolf wants," Gio told him, trying to be assuring.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 05:30:45 AM
<**well none of them have shown that their particularly good with fighting with their powers yet :p**>

"Guess I have nothing to worry about," Casiel said softly, back to resting his head against Gio, fingers curled around his.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 05:40:38 AM
"We should get some rest," Gio suggested, turning his head to lay against Casiel's.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 06:52:02 AM
Henry really had no desire of reaching Greece with the others; he knew who he was already and he wanted very little to do with his father or the gods. Henry slipped his hand into hers, and gazed into the fire, deep in thought. Before her mind was wiped, Faline had not needed powers; he wondered if those skills were still in there without her memory, "You seem to know what to do with the horses. Perhaps your other...skills, are in there somewhere too" Henry suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 12, 2019, 06:59:20 AM
(I’m still laughing because Elisha, Cas, and Mateline are aunts/uncles for Henry technically)

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 08:13:41 AM
Faline looked at Henry and tilted her head a bit, "What, uh, what other skills do I have?" she asked and brought her hand up, gently touching the ends of his hair.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 10:04:55 AM
Henry glanced at her a moment, wondering how to answer without revealing too much. "Well, from what I saw  you were exceptional with a bow and arrow, knives...probably any weapon actually," Henry said, remembering how easily she beat him when they were practicing on the boat. "You were quick and strong and clever, which...qualities I imagine you still possess." Henry said, "You really didn't need powers. You still beat me...even when I was using my powers to cheat"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 10:11:06 AM
Faline looked at him, listening and furrowing her brow together, "I'm...dangerous then?" she glanced at Casiel, remembering his threat to wipe her if she was threatening to them. She swallowed, "Why were we fighting?" she asked quietly, looking at him, smirking a bit "And how bad did I beat you?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 10:32:03 AM
Henry sighed and turned his gaze to the fire, "You were dangerous, yes." he confessed then look back at her with a grin, "We were just practicing; you were trying to teach me how to fight." he explained, then chuckled, "I was holding my own but then you pinned to the ground with knives to my throat," he admitted, "it was terrifying...but also rather amazing" he recalled.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 10:38:18 AM
"I'm not really tired," Casiel murmured, though he closed his eyes. The howling had stopped, replaced by wind and nocturnal animals, and... voices. Whispering. "This forest is pretty haunted," he said with a frown. First wolves, now ghosts? The locals probably never wandered into the area.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 10:43:13 AM
Faline was amazed to hear she was such a fierce fighters. She sat up taller and for a moment, she looked at Henry and smirked, "Oh...that sounds...scandalous almost," she whispered and looked around at the others before coming closer to him, running her arms over Henry's shoulders, "Did you like her? The woman I was before? This...warrior woman?"

Giovanni sighed out, "You can hear them? The ghosts?" he asked and then, still holding Casiel's hand and laid back on the ground staring up at the stars, "What do they say?" he asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 10:47:44 AM
Cas sat for a moment, eyes still closed, listening. "They..." His eyes opened. "They're calling to me. Calling my name," he said softly, looking around. He shivered softly, lying down beside Gio. "That is rather unsettling."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 11:14:27 AM
"I did," Henry admitted, "but...it was the softer side that would sometimes break through that I really liked," he said
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 11:16:19 AM
Gio ran his arm up and down Cas' side and bit his lip, looking concerned. He then took a deep breath, "Why would they do that?" he whisper. How would they know him name? Why would they call to him?

Faline looked at him and then she slowly slid away, her fingers on his chest, "Oh." She swallowed roughly, "And I supposed....it's just the soft side now." she looked away, playing with her hair, "Is that why you've been....unsure?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 12:06:01 PM
Henry looked at her with a raised eyebrow, "Unsure? About what exactly?" he asked her.


(my brain is mush, what is she talking about? :P)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 12:10:58 PM
(So he's mostly been distant because they've only known each other a few days, but she doesn't know that XD )

Faline swallowed and then shook her head, "Oh, it's nothing. I don't know what I'm talking about I suppose." she sat back and wrapped her blanket around herself tighter, "Maybe I should get some sleep." she told him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 12:28:50 PM
Casiel squeezed his eyes shut. It wasn't uncommon for spirits to learn his name if they hung around while he was working, but this wasn't the case. "I don't know," he whispered. "I don't know how they-" He broke off, opening his eyes, looking at Gio in something close to fear. "What if I knew them before? When they were alive?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 12:30:47 PM
Gio looked at him and then put his arm around Casiel and brought him closer, "Don't listen to them, drown them out. They don't...they don't matter. They're lost souls, there nothing you can do for them now. You have power over them, tell them to go." he suggested
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 12:37:02 PM
"I know," he said softly, burying his face into Gio's chest. "But..." He stopped. But what if they knew who he was? Was that why they were calling to him? To tell him? No, it was too easy. Something didn't feel right about the whole situation. Besides, as much as he wanted to know, he also didn't want to leave the comfort and safety that was Giovanni's embrace, so he willed the spirits away.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 12:41:52 PM
Gio's eyes got wide as Cas' face was nuzzled into his chest. He breathed in deep and then put his arms around him more, one hand on the small of his back, the other in his hair, "But what?" he whispered, closing his eyes.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 12:42:41 PM
ooooh okay :P)

Henry sighed, "Faline, wait. I am deeply sorry if I seem unsure; it's only because we only met a few days ago," he revealed, then smiled faintly, "I never thought I would fall so hard and fast for someone," he admitted. He reached over and gently brushed a strand of hair behind her ear, looking upon her affectionately, "I am not uncertain about us," he whispered, "I've never been more sure about anything before in my life"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 12:46:39 PM
Faline looked at him, blushing brightly as he touched her hair and cheek. She nodded, "I suppose, it is crazy, to think it's only been days, it feels like it's been so much longer." She came closer to him and gently kissed  his cheek, "I'm going to rest. It's been a long way. Maybe tomorrow, before we leave, we can see if my body still knows how to fight."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 12:50:35 PM
"But nothing," Casiel replied, breathing out deeply. "We should sleep. Long journey ahead of us tomorrow and all that."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 12:52:10 PM
"If I rest long, I may be able to teleport us a good distance," Gio whispered to him and then subtly kissed Casiel's head before he leaned his head back and closed his eyes.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 12:56:27 PM
Henry smiled feeling his cheeks flush, "Of course, good night Faline," he said. He was weary of falling asleep, fearing that he would struggle to wake again.

It had been a long week, though Giovanni had enjoyed the nights spent cuddled with Casiel, even the nights they'd manage to find an inn to stay at. They hadn't killed each other or managed to hurt anyone else, so he considered that a roaring success. But now, now was the challenge for him. As they pulled into the small seaside village he'd grown up in, Giovanni looked at it and goosebumps ran up his arms. "Home," he murmured.

Faline was asleep against Henry's chest in the cart. She had learned with Henry that she did possess all the skills she'd learned before, not remembering that she was an assassin though. She was quick and her mind would think ahead of her to get her out of danger. It was like her body knew things she didn't and she appreciated it greatly. She still felt incredible close to Henry, but now was growing fond of their traveling group as well.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 01:34:53 PM
Henry was wide awake, gently running his hand through Faline's hair as she slept against him; it had been a long journey through France, the longest he had ever experienced. Every day he grew fonder of the girl curled up in his arms. He continued to be weary of the others but he couldn't imagine doing anything to harm them; it seemed impossible that they would turn on him. His vision, despite their journey together had not changed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 01:46:04 PM
Casiel had been staring up at the sky, absolutely bored out of his skull. When he heard Gio he immediately snapped to attention.  "This is it?" He asked excitedly. "Your home?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 01:54:07 PM
Gio chuckled as he slid down off of his horse and nodded to Casiel, "This is it. My village. We can take a boat from here to Greece, right through the sea," he told him and as he looked around, his heart sank and his hands shook. There in the center of town stood a large post. It was on that post his mother's hands had been tied before she was beaten to death. Tears of anger filled his eyes as he suddenly searched around, wondering if the landowner still lived here.

Faline's eyes opened and she took in a deep breath as their cart stopped. She felt Henry's fingers in her hair and smiled. She squeezed his side a bit where her hands had been before beginning to sit up. "We've arrived?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 12, 2019, 01:57:48 PM
Mateline had grown slowly more comfortable around their new companions, though she gravitated more to Elisha due to the seeming couples in their group. She looked around at the town, eyes ending up on Gio's back. She couldn't imagine this was easy for him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 02:04:11 PM
"Yes, it seems that we are here," Henry said, "Did you sleep well?" he asked as he looked around at the village; he was amazed by it all. He never thought he would leave the farm and yet, there he was in Italy. It hardly seemed real.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 02:21:21 PM
Faline nodded and sat up, stretching her arms up and over her head. She then looked down at herself and out at the sea, "We're getting on another boat?" she asked, raising an eyebrow, "We're so far from England now."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 02:27:52 PM
Casiel got back, standing up in the cart, leaning over the front. "Giovanni?" He asked, almost feeling the change in his emotions. "You okay?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 02:30:33 PM
Giovanni was brought back by Casiel's voice and he ungripped his hands, which he now realized he had clenched into fists. He turned and nodded slightly, "I'll be just fine." he told him, "We can sell the horses and cart to a lady there I believe, motioning to a stable.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 02:34:11 PM
"I never thought I would go so far from home," Henry said, looking out at the water. There was something about the village that made him feel uneasy though; the sooner they got to Greece the better. He wasn't sure where that feeling came from.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 02:37:55 PM
Casiel hopped off of the cart, walking over to Giovanni's horse. "He's here? Isn't he?" The man who'd killed his mother.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 02:41:26 PM
Giovanni shook his head, "I...I don't know and it doesn't matter. I don't want to know. If I saw him, I...I don't know what I would do."

Faline looked at Henry curious, "You look distressed? Was it is?" she asked as she got herself out of the cart.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 02:45:44 PM
“I don’t know, being here just feels wrong,” Henry admitted as he too got off the cart. “I’m probably just being paranoid “
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 02:55:51 PM
"We should find him," Casiel said flatly. "You want closure, yes? Want to make sure nobody else suffers at that bastard's hand?" He shrugged, as if they weren't talking about bloody, violent revenge.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 03:13:18 PM
"It's been 16 years Casiel, that man is probably dead or long forgotten me and my mother," Giovanni told him, not truly wanting to go on a vengeful quest.

Faline looked back at the girls in the cart, wondering if they felt the strange energy too that Henry did. Faline looked about, "Gio looks like he's seen a ghost, but...that's Casiel and Mateline's ability, right?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 03:20:38 PM
Henry nodded as he too watched Gio; he did seem rattled, "this is his home. He must not have good memories of it," Henry suggested.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 12, 2019, 03:24:05 PM
(ok all caught up now lol)

Elisha eyed the town. It was a small town, pretty looking. Though, in all honesty, she had found everything through southern France and now Italy to be gorgeous. She liked the warmer climate too, and between that and travelling with people - actually being able to talk to people and be part of something, rather than being on her own - had brought out a softer side of her. She resented it, feeling that letting the cold and calculating side fall to the wayward was stupid, after all, it was her life experiences that had rendered her calloused.

"We should get on with the sales then, so we can head for Greece. It's a very possible that we're still being followed or watched, who knows how far Nataliya's reach is," she said quietly to Mateline, Gio, and Cas. She still didn't trust Henry or Faline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 03:29:29 PM
Gio nodded to Elisha, just wanting to get his head away from this revenge business. "Alright. Elisha, take the horses. I'll see about the cart. And we don't mention that woman about Faline," he warned Elisha.

Faline looked at the group and frowned a bit, hating that they continued to distrust and keep secrets, "It's been so much time and they still refuse to trust me." she told Henry, sighing.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 12, 2019, 03:31:01 PM
"I was trying to be subtle," she said, annoyed. "We should really pick another name for her then, if we have to refer to her. Probably best anyway, in case of spies."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 03:38:49 PM
Henry couldn't help but feel frustration; clearly they didn't trust Faline OR him. After all those days travelling together, they probably still saw him as the traitor. "They'll come around eventually," he said, sounding hopeful.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 12, 2019, 03:43:38 PM
Mateline looked at the horses wearily. As much as they had travelled on them, the creatures still scared her. "I can help with the cart," she offered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 03:45:39 PM
"Forgetting you did it doesn't excuse it," Casiel grumbled. He looked around, finally taking in the sights of Gio's home. It was beautiful, bright and alive, and yet Cas could feel something... unsavoury lurking beneath the surface. "Something feels off," he said. "You guys feel anything?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 12, 2019, 03:47:56 PM
"It's very quiet," Elisha noted. "Much like... a portrait." The longer she stared at it, the more she noted how eerie it was that there wasn't more happening. It's not like it was super early or super late; there should be the sounds of people.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 12, 2019, 03:55:04 PM
"Yes," henry chimed in, "This place...it does feel 'off', like we're not supposed to be here," Henry said, trying to explain how he felt.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 04:58:23 PM
Gio looked around at the group and furrowed his brow. He had personal reasons why he was uncomfortable here but he didn’t understand this energy that they all were talking about. He raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 05:16:15 PM
"Don't give me that look," Casiel chided him. "Something's just weird about this place. And, I'd hate to admit it, but Henry's right; it feels like we don't belong here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 12, 2019, 05:21:00 PM
Mateline grimaced. “We don’t have to stay here long, do we?” She asked. It was quite an eerie place, though she couldn’t put her finger on why.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 05:55:20 PM
"Maybe it's you guys and your connection to the Gods," Faline told them as she came forward, "I don't feel it either."

Gio looked at Faline and shook his head, "But I don't understand. Listen. We sell the horses and cart and then I'm gonna try to teleport us to Greece. No more boat rides. Straight across the sea," he told them and started to lead the horses and cart towards the shop.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 06:03:06 PM
Casiel jogged a little to keep up with Gio. "Do you think you'll be strong enough for that?" He asked worriedly. "It's an awful long way, and a lot of people."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 06:05:43 PM
"I've been healed for 10 days, been doing nothing but riding a horse and..." he flushed as he looked at Casiel, "Spending my evenings with you," he said quietly and then shrugged, "I can do it. I'm sure I can. I feel fine. Actually, I feel good. Something about being home..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 12, 2019, 06:39:14 PM
"And you're sure you want to leave immediately?" Casiel asked him. He reached out to touch his arm, but then stopped himself, turning away and trying to act nonchalant. "I know it's been a while, but this was your home. Maybe... maybe you could find out a bit more about your father here, even?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 12, 2019, 06:43:10 PM
Giovanni stopped the horses at the shop and looked at Casiel, "Why are you pushing this? Everyone else hates this place and wants to go as fast as possible. I'm trying to not run into a man who murdered my mother and a town who watched it happen and did not."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 02:00:50 AM
Casiel raised his hands defensively. "I don't like the place either, but I just... I thought... I was trying to be thoughtful okay?" He said, little irritated. "But fine, let's just go then."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 03:02:10 AM
“Right then. Well I’ll need one of you men to come with me to sell the horses. In the eyes of many I’m just a pretty wench with no brains,” Elisha muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 05:41:44 AM
Giovanni looked at Casiel and then at Elisha. He groaned and whistled to get Henry’s attention, “Help Elisha with the sale.” He looked to Giovanni, “Come with me.” He said and ran his fingers through his hair before starting to walk towards the beach and docks.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 05:44:18 AM
Henry groaned as he looked over at Elisha, "Fine," he grumbled reluctantly. "Come on then," he said to her
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 05:47:44 AM
Casiel hesitated for a moment, knowing well enough when his nosiness had gone too far. After a moment he jogged after Giovanni. "Where are we going?" He asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 05:55:22 AM
“Home,” Giovanni said and kept walking with him for a short distance until they got to a little house not 100 feet from the docks. He hesistated as he approached it, water welling up in his eyes. His fingers digging into his palm. He hadn’t seen it since he ran. And no one had taken the home after they’d left obviously, it was falling apart.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 06:02:34 AM
Elisha caught took the horse lead for the horses, and then shoved one of them towards Henry. "You lead one, I'll lead the other," she said. She then walked in front of him, heading down to the area Gio had pointed out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 06:06:31 AM
Faline glared at Elisha, not liking how she shoved the horse. She then looked at Mateline as she stood beside her,  but nervous and swallowed, “Can I help you with the cart?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 06:09:47 AM
Henry took the other horse, clenching his jaw as he held his tongue. Elisha was a piece of work. "Careful with them," he said evenly, calming the slightly spooked horse before following her.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 07:30:39 AM
Casiel watched Giovanni for a moment. "Nothing but an old empty building," he said quietly. "But, if this is too hard for you, we don't- we can leave, I mean."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 08:00:59 AM
Giovanni shook his head, “I was 10. I never would have looked for things that I want to know now.” He told Casiel. He then went into the house and immediately, Tears just fell from his eyes. He wasn’t sobbing, just silently letting them roll down. He walked through the small room with books and chairs and a table. Their kitchen, just a small fire pit. He pushed through and then with a heavy heart and with his eyes closed, he opened the door to the room he shared with his mother.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 10:07:40 AM
It was a little uncomfortable, if he were to be perfectly honest. Maybe it was his lack of memories, but he really couldn't understand being so emotional over a bunch of empty rooms. Did that make him a bad person? He was beginning to serious question it. He came up behind Gio, placing a hand on his shoulder. "You okay?" He asked awkwardly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 10:10:45 AM
Gio opened his eyes again and nodded, swallowing, wiping his eyes quickly, "Yes. I'm...I'll be alright." he said and then went over and sat down on the bed. He squeezed his eyes shut as he imagined sitting there with his mother again, her last months being sick and frail, but still singing him to sleep every night, still holding him closely. He opened his eyes and looked around the room, then getting up and going over to a trunk, opening it and finding her clothes. He pulled out one of her dresses and buried his face in it, another wave of tears hitting him as her scent lingered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 10:15:09 AM
Casiel wandered into the room, eyeing the place carefully. It didn't appear to be haunted; in fact, the entire place was empty. "She's resting peacefully," he told him, though he knew it was probably a little comfort.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 10:19:29 AM
Gio turned and looked at Casiel, "Her ghost isn't here?" he said and took a deep breath, nodding, "I'm glad. I'd hate to learn that she was wandering and that I'd left." He then dug through her trunk and furrowed his brow, pulling out a wooden box with a dolphin engraved on it. He opened it and and sat down on the floor, eyes suddenly wide, "Letters..." he whispered and pulled them out. They were all addressed to the same person...My Darling and she'd signed them all Psyche.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 10:26:30 AM
"No, she definitely passed on," Casiel told him. He walked over, crouching beside Gio. "Letters? To... to your father, maybe?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 10:33:13 AM
Giovanni nodded, "But my mother's name was Olivia, not Psyche. I don't understand." he said and looked at Casiel before turning back and reading the letter on top.

My Darling,
Everyday Giovanni grows so much bigger and stronger. He looks more and more like you every time I see him turn a corner and it simply makes me wish you were here with us. I know this is for our safety, but if your mother really discovered us, would it be that awful? I promise to you, I will not insist any longer, I only ask that you will not abandon our son. He will need your strong hand one day when he’s becoming a man and begins to seek out things I do not know.
I miss you every night and wish for the days we spent together on the beach. I hope to see you again with my own eyes one day, my handsome Cupid.
Just one response to one of these letters is all I ask, my love. Just to show our son that his father knows and cares.
Eternally yours,
Psyche


"Cupid," Giovanni murmured and his eyes opened, "That's my father..."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 10:50:07 AM
Casiel took a step back, staring at the letter. "Cupid is his Roman name, Eros," he said. "But that probably doesn't mean anything, right? Different names for the same god."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 12:48:34 PM
"Roman," Giovanni said, unsure why the word felt...familiar and yet raw like a nerve. He took a big breath and then sit up taller on the floor, "Nevertheless, it's...it's something right?" he said and then pulled out of the box one last object, an ornate golden right, looking like it's been engraved by the hands of the Faye. It was clearly a man's ring as it was large and the band was thick and on it were dolphins and a broken arrow going through them. Giovanni slipped it onto his right hand and it was nearly a perfect fit. He gripped his hand with it and then smiled, "I think...this box and the ring are all I need."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 01:13:32 PM
Casiel curled his lip. Something about the word Roman was... uncomfortable. No, not the word, but... "I guess it's something," he said, now growing antsy. "That ring belong to your mother?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 01:19:26 PM
Giovanni looked up at Casiel and shrugged, "I don't...ever remember seeing her wear it and it's certainly a man's ring. Perhaps, my father's." Giovanni told her as he stood up and looked around, "Let's go." he told him and took his hand suddenly, since they were inside and no one could see.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 01:41:01 PM
Elisha led them over to one of the men. “Excuse me, sir, you wouldn’t be in need of some horses?” She asked politely. Having grown up proper, she still knew how to sound sweet and innocent.

The man eyed her and her strange attire. “Travellers? Not like I ever saw. Why’re you in men’s clothes? Steal them, wench?”

Elisha’s anger flashed but she dared not speak. Instead, she looked back at Henry for help. As a man, he could help out.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 01:52:59 PM
Casiel squeezed Giovanni's hand, but didn't move with him. They rarely ever got moments alone. Truly alone, where they'd be safe together. "Do you think the others could wait just a little while longer?" he asked, hoping the desire in his voice gave away his motive.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 01:57:56 PM
Henry stepped forward gently pushed Elisha out of the way, flashing a charming smile, "We are merely passing through, on our way to Greece in fact. We will not be needing these fine creatures any longer. If you are in need of some horses, I can promise they would serve you well," he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 02:01:13 PM
The man nodded slowly. “I’m sure they would,” the man said. “I just don’t want to be buying stolen goods from some strange woman. Could you tell me where you got them?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 02:05:04 PM
"Oh they aren't stolen," Henry assured the man, "We purchased them from an inn keeper in France," Henry said, his lies coming easily.

(I honestly don't remember how they got the horses :P)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 02:22:50 PM
(Casiel stole them)

Giovanni turned and looked at Casiel and stopped, "I...suppose they can wait," he whispered and came closer. He put the wooden box in his bag and then took Casiel's other hand and just looked at the floor, "Thank you for coming with me. I don't know if I would have come if you weren't here."

Faline watched them as they dealt with the horses, a little nervous about the whole predicament, but trusting Henry and Elisha to get it done.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 02:24:25 PM
(Ok note: shillings were English but I honestly can’t find any info nor do I know how much it would have cost in Italian coin)

“Quite the travelers,” the man said. “How much do you want for them? 10 shillings?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 02:35:36 PM
Henry did not want to push their luck so he agreed, "I think that would be sufficient," Henry replied
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 02:39:25 PM
(Apparently 10 shillings was the price of a non-noblitiy owned steed... thank you, Internet)

The man reached into his coin purse. “You’re lucky I just got my pay,” he said. “Even if I don’t use these horses, I can sell them off.” He pulled out the coins and handed them to Henry, bypassing Elisha’s outstretched hand. He leaned in closer to Henry. “A word of advice? Don’t let the woman touch your money. God knows, she’d spend it all on clothing.” He outstretched his hand for a shake.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 03:00:48 PM
"Of course. I was curious to see where you'd grown up," Casiel murmured, intertwining their fingers. "And I knew it would be good for you. You learned something today, did you not?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 03:05:03 PM
Henry took the coins and shook the man's hand, smiling uncomfortably, "ahh...right, of course. I'll keep that in mind," Henry said politely, though he wanted to chew the man out for being so rude...even if it as directed at an individual he was not fond of. Henry took Elisha's arm and walked back to the others, feeling it would be wise to get her far away from the man in case she decided to lose control.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 03:10:28 PM
(Decided to lose control lol)

Elisha was seething but she kept herself proper until they were out of the man’s earshot. “I want to remove his head from his body,” she hissed. “Or cut off each of those damn fingers so he can’t hold coin ever again, that bastard.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 03:30:50 PM
“I did,” he whispered and then put his hand up, running his fingers through Casiel’s hair. He played with it for a moment and then smirked, “Remember the night when I had to pick those leaves out of your hair?” He whispered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 03:34:21 PM
Henry chuckled, "That would have been entertaining, but I don't think we can afford to make such a scene right now," Henry said, glad he'd pulled her away when he had.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 03:50:00 PM
Casiel blushed profusely. "It's not my fault my hair is a mess," he murmured, though he pulled Gio closer. "Besides, I'm sure you wouldn't find me as captivating if I were to cut it," he said cheekily.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 13, 2019, 03:56:51 PM
[heck I’ve missed a lot...where am I?]
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 04:00:51 PM
(lets just say you came with us, so Elisha, Henry, and Faline have just gone and sold off the horses, and then Gio and Cas are getting the hots on in Gio's old home I believe)

"Oh it would have been very entertaining," Elisha seethed. "Cut each finger off one by one. Or maybe, cut off his manhood so that he wouldn't be a real man anymore."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 13, 2019, 04:09:42 PM
Mateline grimaced. “Well he wasn’t very kind, but don’t you think that’s a bit much?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 04:11:34 PM
“It’s your face and your eyes and your chest and your thighs and your hands that I find captivating,” Giovanni whispered. He leaned down and kissed Casiel slowly, putting his hand on his chest, nuzzling their noses together.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 04:16:59 PM
Henry rolled his eyes but laughed, "He probably deserves just that," Henry said, "but I do agree with Mateline, a bit much. I don't think it would be wise to draw to much attention to us right now....especially in this place," he added, looking around uneasily. "We need to get to Greece soon; this place is awful"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 13, 2019, 04:20:22 PM
"The closer to Rome we find ourselves, the more uncomfortable it becomes," Elisha commented. "Perhaps it's because the Vatican is there... since we know now that Catholicism is at least partially incorrect, given our heritage."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 13, 2019, 04:24:06 PM
Mateline grimaced. “This place is just too weird. It feels even less safe than the wilderness,” she admitted.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 04:40:55 PM
"Is that so? And here I thought you'd been drawn in by my endearing personality," Casiel purred. He dug his fingers through Gio's hair, pulling them close so their lips met.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 13, 2019, 04:53:50 PM
"Whatever it is, I would like to get as far away as possible," henry said, "Now, where did Gio and Cas get to?" he said impatiently
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 05:00:11 PM
Gio moaned quietly and then pushed him a bit, putting against the cold stone wall of the house. “We should go back to the fgroup,” he murmured between kisses.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 05:11:57 PM
Casiel broke away, though their lips were still, ever so slightly, brushing together. "If you want to leave, we can," he said softly. "This place has definitely been setting all of us on edge."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 05:24:38 PM
Giovanni kissed his lips before kissing his nose and then his neck softly. He moved his lips down his throat and then pulled away. He looked Casiel over and smirked to himself before turning to leave the house.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 05:38:46 PM
"Spoil sport," Casiel grumbled, thoroughly unamused. He ran a hand through his hair in an attempt to tame it, then followed Gio out of the house.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 05:45:31 PM
Gio looked back at him and then at the house. He took a long look at it and then turned away, “Back to town?” He asked as they walked along.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 05:59:28 PM
"What else are we going to do?" Casiel asked, kicking a rock down the path. That strange feeling was back; he felt almost hostile, but towards what exactly he did not know.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 06:04:13 PM
Giovanni looked at him and bit his lip softly. He wished he didn't have to be confined with Casiel to be close with him. He wished the circumstances were very different, but he couldn't control that at all. As they approached town again, Gio saw their group, Elisha and Henry looking annoyed, Mateline following and Faline looking sad. Gio approached them, but then stop frozen. He was there. The man. Beside their companions, the man who had beat his mother to death was leaning against a door frame, watching them confused.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 06:22:02 PM
"Giovanni?" Casiel asked, stopping beside him. He followed Gio's line of sight to the older man standing beneath a threshold to one of the buildings. Judging from his lover's reaction, there was only one person it could be. "That's him, isn't it?" he asked, expression hardening into a scowl.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 06:26:54 PM
Gio opened his mouth to answer, but couldn't bring himself to find words. He'd never been more filled with hate and rage than in that moment, but he took a deep breath and closed his eyes, attempting to calm the storm inside when suddenly, the man called to him, the man's eyes seemed to be glazed over, his voice full of grit, "The boy who got away." he called to Giovanni and he opened his eyes, shocked the man recognized him as well. He clenched his fists.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 06:33:04 PM
Casiel put his hand on Gio's arm. "You are part god, remember? Don't let him intimidate you," he said. He looked over at the man, a pathetic, old fool, he figured, and flashed him a humourless grin. "Now, do you still want to leave? Or are you going to handle this once and for all?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 06:35:55 PM
Gio looked up at the man and then at Casiel and shook his head, "I have to leave. I have no reason to make a mess of this."
"You cost me my prize!" the man called to Gio and it made him stop and turn his head to look at the old man, "You're prize? You cost me my mother!"
"The goddess told me if I killed you and your mother, she'd give me whatever my heart desired," the man said and laughed heavily before coughing, clearly not in good health.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 06:48:32 PM
"What goddess?" Casiel demanded. He took position in front of Gio, as if to protect him.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 13, 2019, 06:52:04 PM
"Why would I do a favor for any other goddess but Venus," the man said, putting his hand over his chest, "But the boy got away...so I never got my reward. All I asked from her...was a kiss."
Giovanni shuddered. His mother's murder, his own life, traded for a goddess' kiss? He looked at Casiel, moving to protect him and shook his head, "He's insane."
"She'll honor my plea...as long as I kill the boy," the man said and pulled a fishing spear from behind his door's frame, beginning to approach them.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 13, 2019, 07:10:16 PM
Casiel laughed, not out of surprise or fear, but genuine hilarity. Did he really think he'd be able to take on both of them? "Age has rotted your mind, old man," he taunted. "I suggest you back down."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 02:39:04 AM
Elisha walked with Henry, Mateline, and Faline back to the meeting spot. She was walking when she spotted Gio and Cas a way off, talking to someone. “Who are they talking to?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 02:56:33 AM
Henry glanced their way, “I don’t know but that man just pulled a spear out,” he said, raising an eye brow in almost amusement. He wasn’t really concerned that the boys could handle an old man.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 03:20:10 AM
"Venus, give me strength!" the old man cried as he threw his spear at Gio, it curving miraculously around Casiel. Gio dodged and even caught the spear, looking up and suddenly the man pushed Casiel out of the way and pounced onto Gio, his strength surprising and a fish gutting knife in his hand now. He slashed at Gio a few times, but he managed to keep himself free of harm.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 04:10:11 AM
Mateline cried out when the man attacked and rushed forward, trying to grab the man and pull him off. She had no idea who he was, but he clearly knew Gio.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 05:02:47 AM
Gio struggled with the man and eventually kicked him off with Mateline’s help. The old man swung at Mateline and Giovanni grabbed his arm, pulling him back and then punching him in the face. The older man grabbed his spear away from Gio and plunged it into his side.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 05:24:55 AM
Casiel was frozen for a moment. The old man was clearly abnormal, that much was obvious. Then the scent of blood permeated the air, and Cas felt the same, unstoppable rage he'd felt when Faline had almost killed Gio envelope him again. He grabbed the discarded gutting knife and flung it at the man, before pouncing on him himself, trying to dig his fingernails into the soft flesh of the man's throat.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 05:44:38 AM
Gio stumbled back and pulled the spear from his side, tossing it to the ground before looking at  Casiel in shock. The old man hadn’t stood a chance. He’d been so surprised by the knife that once Casiel was on top of him and thrashing his throat apart, he didn’t even have time to move. Blood splattered everywhere, soaking Casiel, covering Giovanni and even some on Mateline. Gio used what he had left in his strength to drag Casiel off of the man, holding both of his arms, “Youre not an animal! Calm down!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 05:55:52 AM
He hadn't expected there to be so much blood. Maybe the man was weaker than he thought, or maybe Cas was just growing much, much stronger. When Gio grabbed him he immediately tried to shove him away, wanting, no, needing to tear into the man some more. When he heard Gio's voice however he managed to calm down, finally realizing that he was absolutely covered in blood. He looked at Gio, eyes wide.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 06:04:35 AM
Mateline watched in horror as Cas destroyed the mans throat. “Who was be?” She asked, kneeling down to turn him over so it was less of a gruesome sight.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 06:34:01 AM
Gio struggled to hold on Casiel, especially when bleeding out his side, but he managed and then let him go once he calmed down. He let Cas go and step back, “We need to go. This town’s not safe.”
Gio looked to Mateline and sighed, “He killed my mother. “

Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 06:44:53 AM
Elisha has watched as the man bled out from the wound Cas had made. It was revolting really, how quickly he had turned animalistic. “What is wrong with you?” She hissed at Cas. “What was that about?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 06:52:48 AM
"Nothing's wrong with me," Cas snapped at her, suddenly feeling the urge to pounce on Elisha as well. Really, the nerve. Where did she get off talking to him like that? "I defended us, and things got a little messy. That's all." He tried to wipe some of the blood from his face, before turning to Gio. "We need Henry to heal you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 06:59:32 AM
“You tore his neck out and made a royal mess,” Elisha said. “Now we have to dispose of the body so that nobody can track us.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 07:03:34 AM
Gio nodded, “Why am I the one who continues to get attacked?” He muttered and looked to Henry.

Faline saw the blood and destruction and at first she took a step back, but the longer she looked at it, the more...comfortable she felt with it. There wasn’t anything unsettling to her about the scene. “They’ll need new clothes again,” she said to Henry.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 07:07:43 AM
Casiel rolled his eyes. "Nobody can track us, please. We have a teleporter, nobody could follow us if they wanted to." He absent-mindedly lapped some of the blood from his hand, looking around. Either nobody had witnessed the scene, or they were too afraid to confront the group.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 07:11:08 AM
Sorry I’m at church still. I’ll deal with Henry when I’m home :p)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 07:35:18 AM
Mateline stared at Casiel in horror, standing up so she was facing him angrily. “Why would you think that kind of reaction was acceptable? We are trying to be better than them! We aren’t killers.” He scared her, the crazed look in his eyes and the way he licked the blood off himself.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 08:16:58 AM
Henry was disgusted by Casiel's gruesome display and maybe a little frightened of him. There was blood splattered everywhere. Henry approached Gio, shaking his head, "You really ought to be more careful," he grumbled as he lay his hands on the wound and healed it as much as he could before feeling weary himself. He pulled his hands off and looked to Faline a moment, surprised to see how calm she was about the whole situation.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 08:38:18 AM
They were afraid of him. It almost felt good. He smirked at Mateline, giving a bored shrug. "I overreacted, okay. I'm sure you would have done the same in my situation, had you anything in your life worth fighting for," he said coldly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 08:51:59 AM
Her nostrils flared and she stepped up closer, getting as in his face as a woman of her stature could. “I have plenty worth fighting for,” She snarled. “Just because I’m not aggressive about it doesn’t mean I have nothing.” His words stung though, the feeling of loneliness was still strong. And the way he smiled...it was almost monstrous.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 09:29:53 AM
“We have to go,” Gio said as he started to hear voices in the town start to rumble. He quickly grabbed Mateline and Henry’s hands and looked at the other three, “I’m gonna teleporter us. Now. Hurry!” He said.

Faline saw them holding hands and ran over, grabbing Henry’s hand and looked at Casiel and Elisha. She offered her hand to one of them.

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 09:32:02 AM
Casiel glanced back at the body he'd torn apart, almost sadly. What a waste. He then relented and took Faline's hand, extending his own to Elisha.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 09:40:05 AM
I'm going out so you can just pp Henry if you need to :P)

Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 09:42:44 AM
Elisha took his hand. He was more dangerous than she gave him credit for, and she was impressed. After all, the man did come at them with a spear, it was self defense. Overkill sure, but still.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 09:49:25 AM
Once their hands were connected, Giovanni closed his eyes and thought long and hard about Greece. He grunted as he squeezed Henry and Mateline’s hands and then....Gio opened his eyes. Every time he teleported, he felt more accomplished about it. Especially with six... “Oh no,” he murmured. As they sat on the coast of Greece, Gio realized he’d made a mistake. Only Henry and Mateline were with him.

Faline has closed her eyes too, nervous about being teleported for the first time that she knew of. She only opened her eyes when she felt Heny’s Hand leave hers. They hadn’t moved. Giovanni probably was weak from the stabbing. She looked to where Henry had been and then screamed. He was gone. She turned to look at who she was left with and then stumbled to fine the fisherman’s knife and held it in self defense. It was just her, Elisha, and Casiel.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 09:55:54 AM
“What in the world...?” Elisha muttered, looking around. Gio was gone, and had taken Henry and Mateline too. It was just her, the blood eater, and the now knife weilding amnesiac. “What are you doing?” She asked Faline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 09:58:24 AM
“Henry’s not here. You two might try to attack me now,” she said, clearly afraid. She looked around again, like they might reappear at any moment.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 10:04:36 AM
Casiel swore under his breath. Oh, this wasn't good. He looked at Faline, scowling. "Calm down, nobody here is going to hurt you unless you do something stupid." He looked around, now hearing shouts and voices coming closer.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 10:07:05 AM
“Like kill a man and he covered in his blood,” Faline said quietly and then put the knife down slowly and looked around, “What do we do? Where do we go?” She asked and started to breathe harder, nervous at the growing voices.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 10:08:06 AM
Mateline stared around at their surroundings, her guard up as she realized half their friends weren’t with them. “Gio...” she said, eyes wide. “Where are the others?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 10:09:32 AM
Casiel just smiled at her comment, taking no offense to it. Sure, it had been stupid, but strangely satisfying. "Well we either run, or fight our way out of here."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 10:11:08 AM
Gio looked at her and shook his head, “I don’t know. I...I panicked. I shouldn’t have teleported after just being stabbed,” he said and put his head in his hands. “I don’t know where they are. They could be anywhere in between.”

“I know we could take them....but it’s better if we run,” Faline told him, “You want to be back with Giovanni? Then we have to get to Greece.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 10:18:21 AM
Casiel stared into the distance. His need for bloodshed hadn't died down, but he knew better than to take on the entire village alone. "We need to steal another boat," he said finally, turning to head back to the docks.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 10:20:48 AM
Mateline patted Gios back, trying her best to comfort him. He must feel terribly guilty. “We’ll get them back,” she promised. “I’m sure they’re ok.” She didn’t sound very convincing.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 11:36:53 AM
Henry looked around frantically, feline no where to he seen. He looked to gio and mateline, “We...we have to go back for them!” He exclaimed.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 02:46:44 PM
“You’ll be spotted in your bloody state,” Elisha said. “We have to hide, get you something less conspicuous, and then we can think about stealing a boat. If we go now they’ll take notice... it’s broad daylight.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 03:33:55 PM
Faline followed with Casiel and Elisha and nodded at Elisha's suggestion, "We hide now and steal in the night. Casiel, where did you and Gio disappear to earlier?" she asked.

Giovanni twisted the ring around his finger anxiously as he sat and thought about their predicament. He looked at Henry and sighed, "Don't...don't panic. We can think of something. We can try to send them some kind of message? Maybe you can see them in a vision? Where we reunite? Or..." he looked at Mateline, "The ghosts...You could send a ghost to Casiel."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 03:38:25 PM
She breathed out hard. “They don’t listen to me like they do him...” she shook her head. “I can try. What do you want to say?” She could do this, she just needed to have the same authority as Cas did when speaking to the ghosts.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 03:40:52 PM
"You just need to know where they are and if they are safe," Giovanni told her and put his hand on her shoulder, "I know you can do this."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 03:41:47 PM
"To Gio's childhood home," Casiel said. He pointed to the building ahead. "That one there. It's abandoned."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 03:45:39 PM
“Then we go there,” Elisha said. “And quickly.” She started heading down to the building.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 03:46:21 PM
She sighed nervously and nodded, turning her attention instead to the spirits nearest her, speaking in a hushed but commanding voice that they convey the message to Casiel. It took a few tries before one seemed to accept her wish and disappear. “I think it’s worked,” she said to Gio. “I just have to wait and see if Cas replies. We should find somewhere safe to stay in the meantime.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 03:51:10 PM
Giovanni nodded and stood up, looking around, "Without Casiel, I'm afraid we'll have to find somewhere free. I don't have any coin left." he then turned and looked at Henry, "Wait, did you sell the horses or does Elisha have the money?"

Faline nodded and ran along with them to the house, once inside, she looked around in a tiny bit of awe, 'This is where Gio grew up?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 03:55:31 PM
"I sold them!" Henry said as he pulled out the coins he'd received from that man, "Should be plenty,"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 03:58:23 PM
“Ok, that’s good, that’s good for us!” Mateline exclaimed. “So long as they don’t ask any questions we can find a cheap place to stay for now.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 03:58:44 PM
"Then I suppose they don't have any money. They will have to sneak onto a boat, which...is fine. Casiel can help them," Gio said and then started to walk up the beach, towards the small village there, "You two okay?"

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 04:00:10 PM
"Yeah, this... this was his home," Casiel said softly, looking around. The ghost appeared suddenly, much to his surprise, and with a message. "We're fine. We're still in the fishing village, going to hide out for the night until morning, then we'll take a boat to Greece," he told it. "Now go, relay that message." The spirit vanished, off to find Mateline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 04:02:21 PM
Mateline jumped when the ghost reappeared, and grabbed Gio’s arm as it relayed the message. “They’re ok, they’re exactly where we left them.” It couldn’t have been better news.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 04:02:59 PM
“Where are they?” Elisha asked. “I’m assuming that was a spectre with a script?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 04:03:43 PM
Henry thought about that question, not sure he had an answer. He was separated from Faline, the one person he trusted. He glanced over at Gio and Mateline; they seemed like decent person but knowing what was to come, he couldn't bring himself to fully trust them. "I suppose," he finally said, "this...is not an ideal situation," he said. He looked to Mateline and smiled a bit, "good," he said in relief.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 04:11:15 PM
"It was," Casiel said, roaming around the little house. "They're in Greece, safe. We'll reunite there."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 04:12:40 PM
Gio sighed out and then looked around, wishing he could see the ghosts himself and tell them a million messages for Casiel. Like how sorry he was, in particular. He groaned and nodded, "Thank you Mateline. I'm grateful to have you here. Be on the watch for more ghosts with messages then." He then looked to Henry, "Trust me, she will be okay. Elisha spent that first night with her and Casiel isn't going to hurt her unless she would attack first."

Faline looked around the small home and went she saw the bedroom, she frowned a bit. It was small. And aged. There was just the one bed and the trunk. She knelt down, fingers touching the dress Gio had pulled out earlier.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 04:16:45 PM
Henry nodded, though not reassured, "I guess I'm concerned of what would happen if her memory came back," he admitted; he'd seen that look on her face when Cas attacked that man...like it was the most normal thing in the world. "They'll hurt her and I...I can't do anything about it because I'm here"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 04:20:00 PM
Mateline couldn’t help but feel bad for Henry, he looked so helpless and in love. “I promise, nothing will happen to Faline,” she said gently. “They wouldn’t hurt her.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 04:22:47 PM
"Don't touch that," Casiel warned Faline. "It... belonged to his mother. I don't think he'd appreciate anyone touching her things."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 04:23:14 PM
"Yes they would! You saw what Cas did to that man...and he didn't even care! He enjoyed it even," Henry said; there was something seriously wrong with that guy.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 04:24:36 PM
Thinking about what Cas had did was making her uneasy. She couldn’t argue with Henry, her own brother scared her. “Yes but Elisha would stop him.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 04:28:26 PM
Giovanni looked at the two of them and his heart sank. He knew they were right. There was something wrong with Casiel. He'd noticed it himself a few times now. There was this...bloodlust he seemed to have and he had been trying to ignore it, but when he saw the way he'd torn the old man, his concern grew again. He push his hair out of his face, "I think...Casiel may have been a very different man before...someone I don't want to come back. The same way you don't want Faline to..."

Faline pulled her hand away and stood up, putting her hands behind her, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to...I was just curious."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 04:33:30 PM
"You mean...you think Cas did to himself what he did to Faline?" Henry asked, frowning a bit. Just who was Casiel? The thought did not put his mind at ease.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 04:44:35 PM
Casiel glared at her for a moment, then his expression softened. There was still no sign of her memory coming back. She was a completely different person. "It's fine," he said. "Just... be careful."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 04:46:41 PM
"I mean, what are the chances that someone else with the same ability would find him and do that to him? Maybe he did something terrible and just wiped himself?" Giovanni said and turned to them, "He's a different man now though, right? I mean...I ask you because...With Faline, did you love her before? When she was insane?"

Faline looked at him for a long moment as he glared, but then he relaxed and she let out a breath she didn't know she'd been holding. She nodded at him and then came out of the room, "He said that man killed his mother? How long ago?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 04:54:06 PM
Casiel nodded. "About sixteen years ago, I think," he told her. "And he still remembered Gio," he said, laughing bitterly. "He had wanted a kiss from Aphrodite, apparently, in exchange for killing Gio and his mother. But Gio managed to get away." Something didn't make sense though; what would the goddess have wanted with them? "Either way, he was a pathetic old bastard. He deserved what I did to him," he said, as if he was trying to convince himself that it was true.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 04:56:03 PM
Henry frowned as he thought about it; he had certainly developed strong feelings for here before Casiel wiped her mind. There was no question about that. "I did," Henry admitted, "But I fell for the softer side that sometimes broke through. The side that just wanted her humanity back" he said.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 05:01:48 PM
"Aphrodite? Why would a goddess care about which humans live and die?" Faline asked, shaking her head and then looked at Casiel, "Maybe Gio's mother kept one of his father's shirts or had a tunic of some kind you could use." she suggested.

Gio looked at him and then frowned a bit, "I suppose we stole her opportunity to ever prove she could do it on her own, but Henry...you understand why we had to."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 05:09:02 PM
Casiel looked down at himself, remembering the horrid state he was in. "Yes, right. I should get cleaned up." He walked into the room, looking around. "Would she have even kept his clothes? He was a god, apparently."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 14, 2019, 05:10:27 PM
Henry nodded, fully understanding but he would have liked to see if she was capable of changing on her own. This mind-wiped faline was not really the girl he fell for. It was just part of her. “I understand,” Henry said, “it didn’t change anything though,” he said, thinking about his vision
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 05:13:06 PM
"If Gio just left one day, you wouldn't keep whatever of his you could hold onto?" Faline asked him and bit her lip, "I mean...not like now. We're going to get back to him now."

"I mean, it's very clear you still care for her. And it's a good thing too because she clings to you," Gio said, thinking that the 'change' Henry was referring to was how he felt. Gio looked around the village and realized he couldn't read the Greek on the signs.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

Nope too tired to think anymore. Bed time! :p)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 05:21:39 PM
Casiel dug his fingernails into his palms. If Gio left... What would he do? What would he have left to fight for? He let out a deep breath, then started rummaging through the old wardrobe in the corner of the room. Most of the clothes were women's, old and moth-bitten, but he managed to find a man's shirt. "Guess this'll have to do," he said. Now all he needed was to wash the blood from his hands and chest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 14, 2019, 05:26:23 PM
"Glad I could help," Faline said softly and then stuffed out of the room and sat at the table in the living area, looking around at it all.

(Same. sleep time)
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 14, 2019, 06:13:42 PM
Casiel had found a basin, quickly sneaking out to fill it with water before retreating back into the safety of the old house. He went back up to the room to have as little privacy, removing his soiled tunic and beginning to wash the blood from his body.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 14, 2019, 11:27:19 PM
Now that Cas was gone, it left Elisha and Faline alone together. Elisha watched the other girl carefully. “You didn’t seem so bothered by the killing today,” she noted. She was wondering if Faline was beginning to revert. “Why?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 14, 2019, 11:46:57 PM
Mateline stared at the signs, surprised to see that they made perfect sense to her. “This way,” she told them confidently.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 15, 2019, 02:43:49 AM
Henry simply nodded, too lost in thought to reply; he followed mateline without even a question as he too could read the signs.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 15, 2019, 02:52:31 AM
"You guys know the signs?" Gio asked and followed them, scratching his head, "Hmmm....."

Faline looked at Elisha and her brows came together, looking down, "I....I don't know. I guess that kind of thing just doesn't make me so panicked. It's good to be calm in the face of danger I suppose."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 15, 2019, 02:57:06 AM
Henry looked over at gio, eye brow raised, “yes, can’t you?” He questioned, obviously not realizing that he was reading Greek without ever leaning it. The words just looked like engyto him
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 15, 2019, 04:43:49 AM
“No...they’re in Greek,” Giovanni told him. “Mother didn’t have time to reach me to read her language or Italian even. I didn’t learn English till I moved to England and was training as a squire.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 05:05:00 AM
After cleaning himself up and changing, Casiel made his way back to where Elisha and Faline were, overhearing their conversation. He figured it was nothing to worry about, though- if her memories were to come back surely there would have been signs by now?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 15, 2019, 05:08:00 AM
“Greek...no, they are in English,” he said in utter confusion as he realized how ridiculous it would be for the signs in Greece to be in English.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 15, 2019, 05:14:32 AM
"Are you sure you're fine?" Elisha asked Cas as he came back out. She was wary of this new side of him that was coming out, possibly the old side of him. "Did... any of that bring back any memories for you?"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 05:18:34 AM
"Who, me?" Cas asked. He shrugged, shaking his head. "No, I still remember nothing. Why would it have changed?" There were a few old benches around a table, and he decided to take a seat.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 15, 2019, 05:21:54 AM
"You seem to be quite adept at taking down an enemy in a rather... animalistic fashion," Elisha replied, going to sit as well. "That's not a negative judgement, just an observation."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 05:25:58 AM
"Wouldn't call tearing someone's throat out in a fit of rage 'adept'," Casiel muttered, resting his head on the table. "You think it has something to do with who I was before?"

"I do wonder," Elisha said. "You went right for it, didn't hesitate. How could that have just happened if you hadn't done it before?"

"Maybe because I was angry? The crazy old bastard had just stabbed someone that I care about," Casiel reminded her. Her words were troubling. Had he been some sort of crazed killer before?
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play

"No, but there was an anger there," she said, leaning back in her chair. "Not the kind of anger you'd feel when someone you've known for a short time - regardless of how much you care for them - gets hurt. There was something deeper, more raw."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 07:21:04 AM
Casiel bit the inside of his cheek. "Well I don't know what to tell you," he said after a long pause. "I still don't recall anything about my past. And if I am some sort of violent killer, maybe we should avoid prodding me and trying to spark a memory, hm?"

Faline watched the two interact and swallowed roughly, “I should have taken Giovanni’s hand. I feel like I would have been much safer with them in Greece,” she said and laid back.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 07:30:28 AM
Casiel gave her a quizzical look. "Oh, what? Like we're going to hurt you?" He rolled his eyes. "Please. What would we gain from it?"

Mateline frowned at Gio. “What do you mean you can’t read it? It makes perfect sense.” She pointed at one sign. “Look harder, it’s so clear.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 15, 2019, 01:40:59 PM
“I don’t read Greek. I can speak it. I can speak any language, but reading and writing are a different story,” he told them and then swallowed, “I don’t know get it.” He looked at the signs and took a deep breath, shaking his head.

“Well I’ve never seen Gio or Mateline rip someone apart. And you two have always seemed to like me the least,” Faline told them and shrugged, “It doesn’t matter. We’re gonna just....get through this together.”

Post by: Mara-la on January 15, 2019, 01:44:42 PM
"That's not entirely true," Elisha said. "I don't like anyone much, really, so you needn't take it personally. That being said, I loathed who you were. But seeing as who you are now is different, you fall in that general dislike category."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 15, 2019, 02:16:25 PM
"Well I don't read greek or speak it," Henry said, 'But for some reason, I can read that sign over there," he said, pointing at a building down the road, "I think that's an Inn"
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 15, 2019, 03:43:27 PM
Mateline frowned at Gio. If she and Henry could read the signs, why couldn’t he? “Are you sure you’re the child of a Greek God then?” Perhaps he had gotten his powers in some other strange way.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 04:09:09 PM
Casiel felt his jaw twitch. They kept bringing up the savage way he'd killed that man, as if egging him on to do the same to them. At least he'd had the drive to do something. He'd killed the old bastard, rendered Faline harmless, and forced Henry to work with them. He hadn't been content to just sit on his arse and wait for someone else to do something. No, he'd shown initiative and power...
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 15, 2019, 04:46:31 PM
Gio shook his head and opened his bag, pulling out the box of letters, "No, actually. My mom would write letters to my father. She called him Cupid. Casiel said that's the Roman name for Eros, the one he thought was my father."

Faline chuckled a little at Elisha, the sentiment giving her a bit of comfort. She then looked at Casiel and felt his glare. She swallowed hard, "Was I really so awful before?" she asked them both, "I...I can't even imagine it."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 04:49:06 PM
"You were definitely something all right, to put it mildly," Casiel told her. "But you're better off now, trust me."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 15, 2019, 04:52:24 PM
"Henry was practicing with me while we were traveling. Showing me some of my skills. I have really acute reaction times, my body just moves before I can think about it," she told them, Faline genuinely amazed, "If I can use those for good things, then that's what I want to do."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 15, 2019, 05:43:38 PM
At that comment Casiel smiled to himself. That was proof, was it not? That he'd done something good and the others should be thanking him. "Well I'll be the first to say that I'm glad to have you on our side."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 16, 2019, 05:21:20 AM
Mateline furrowed her brow in confusion. His mother called his father a Roman name, he himself was Roman. “You don’t think...I mean they’re the same god aren’t they? Just different names?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 16, 2019, 07:52:42 AM
Giovanni looked between them both and stepped back, "Maybe....they're not."

Faline looked at Casiel and found a faint smile, "Thank you."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 16, 2019, 08:41:03 AM
"So what shall we do while we wait?" Elisha asked.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 16, 2019, 08:56:14 AM
Casiel shrugged. "Dunno. I was gonna catch up on some much needed sleep." Which was pretty much the only thing he could think of doing as leaving the house was not an option.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 16, 2019, 11:54:46 AM
Mateline took his arm. “I think we should learn more about these gods. They must have some temples or something around here, right?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 16, 2019, 05:17:52 PM
Faline nodded, “Rest would probably be good since we plan to sneak out tonight,” she said. She then sighed, wishing she had a way to speak to Henry like Casiel and Mateline. She hoped that wherever he was, he was having visions of their reunion.

Giovanni looked at Mateline and nodded, “That would be good. We should seek that out when we’re all together again”

<**sweet**>

They snuck out under cover of darkness, Casiel carefully leading the way to the docks. He located a boat quite easily- a small one, for a short journey with few people. "Perfect," he said, quickly climbing on board.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 01:41:39 AM
Elisha climbed onto the boat. “Do we know where in Greece they are?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 02:41:24 AM
Faline was about to get into the boat, but she stopped at the water, staring at it and for some reason, it frightened her to the core. She looked out at the boat and very carefully get in without getting wet. She was still a bit shaken as she sat in the boat though.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 17, 2019, 04:28:05 AM
"We don't, but it'll be easier to track them when we're closer," Casiel said, untying the boat from the dock. He noticed Faline's obvious fear and was confused for a moment before he remembered how Gio had almost drowned her. He smiled softly to himself at that, how such a ferocious person had been rendered timid and scared.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 04:57:35 AM
"How will you track them? Can you just ask a ghost?" Faline asked as she got closer to him. She wondered if maybe she didn't know how to swim and that's why she was so nervous.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 17, 2019, 05:06:42 AM
"That's probably what I'll do," Casiel told her as they set off. "They're practically like invisible tracking hounds."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 05:11:36 AM
Faline chuckled at him lightly and looked across the sea, trying to imagine Henry at the other side of this endless horizon of water.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 07:42:13 AM
(Fine fine, but it would have taken them like three days in a small boat like that. So they should be pretty rough. Hungry, sunburnt, etc)

<**lol Cas is going to be the crankiest b*tch**>

Casiel was starving. What little rations they had amongst themselves had run out a day and a half ago (not that they'd had very much food to begin with either), and he swore he could feel his stomach eating itself. His body ached, red and raw from the sun, and he was certain he was delirious. He almost didn't realize that they'd made it to land until the boat was right by the harbour.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 08:35:28 AM

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 08:36:56 AM
Faline was curled up under the shade of her dress, knees to her chest, she’d lost discretion the day before during the noon hour as her pale skin turned the brightest red. She was in just the white slip from under her dress, holding the green fabric over her head to cover her tender skin. She looked beside then and gasped happily and giggled crazily, “We’ve made it. Casiel. Elisha, the land. We’ve...we’ve made it,” she gasped dryly, voice barely more than a crack.

Giovanni based in the tavern for the thousandth time since they’d arrived in Greece. Not even ale could calm him now. No messages from Casiel and no sign of them down by the shore. He went to the Window again and peered out at the harbour, “They should be here, right?”

Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 08:44:49 AM
"Finally," Elisha said, the dull emotionless expression changing from her face to a more alert and sharp one.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 08:47:13 AM
Since their arrival in Greece, Henry had slept very little. He was too worried about Faline; his mind just could not settle. He looked over at Gio from where he sat on the ground, just leaning against the wall, "It would have been a long journey. they'll be here..." he said, though sounded uncertain. He had not had a single vision about the other getting to Greece safely, which had not helped him get rest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 08:56:21 AM
Faline wanted to bound up the shore, climb through the sand and find Henry, but she didn’t know if she had the strength and she certainly didn’t want to get in the water.

Gio stared out the window and then squinted. A small boat pulled into the harbor, a man and two women with dark hair. His eyes grew wide and he dint even say anything to Henry as he suddenly bolted for the door, “Casiel!”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 17, 2019, 09:14:44 AM
When the boat reached shore Casiel hopped out into the shallow water, wading onto land. He heard someone call his name, but was too occupied to pay attention. He fell to his knees and then onto his back, too exhausted to move any further.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 09:26:40 AM
Henry scrambled to his feet as Gio bolted out the door. He ran out after him, quickly spotting the boat with what appeared to be Cas, Faline and Elisha. He ran after Gio to the harbour, his eyes fixing on Faline.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 09:42:13 AM
Faline saw Casiel get out of the boat  and that the  water was shallow enough, so she not so eagerly stepped out of the boat, carrying her dress over her head to keep it from getting wet before making it to shore and then with  the biggest smile, tears met her eyes. She  cast her dress on the sand and hobbled toward Henry.

Giovanni crashed down into the sand beside Casiel and pushed his hair out of his face, gasping, panting in shock over the state of him. He then looked at Faline and Elisha and shook his head, "You were out  there too long," he said and then reached under Casiel, picking him up and looked to Elisha, "Follow us. We have a room at the  Inn." he then started to carry Casiel there.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 09:47:41 AM
"You don't say," Elisha growled. Any chance at her being pleasant had disappeared the moment her skin had started to burn from the sun. She had thought herself possibly immune to sunburns, seeing as she was darker than most Scots, but that had been disproven halfway through their journey. The hunger wasn't making the situation any better either.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 17, 2019, 09:49:59 AM
Casiel tried his best to struggle out of Gio's hold. "I can... I can walk," he said softly, though he eventually stopped fighting, just letting his head rest against Gio's chest.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 09:52:08 AM
Nothing else matter to him in that moment; he ran to Faline and drew her into his arms, "thanks the gods," he said then pulled back, placing his hands on her cheeks as he looked her over
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 09:55:57 AM
Gio chuckled a bit, "Oh how I've missed your charms Elisha." he said as he whistled and called a young boy over. He handed him a coin and told him to bring cooked meat, bread, boiled potatoes and water to their room at the Inn. He then continued with carrying Casiel, shaking his head, "You could barely move and you're covered in sand and scabs and burns. I'll take care of you. Just...rest" he told him and headed into the building.

Faline pulled out of Henry's reach after an instant of his skin against hers and seethed loudly. "It hurts," she told him and then pushed his hands off of her cheeks, "Out...out of the sun," she begged him and held his hands in her own.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 10:01:35 AM
Elisha followed slowly. Her legs were fine, the pants had kept them covered. But her face was red, as were her arms, despite her attempts to keep her cloak over them. "I never thought I would miss Scotland's dreary climate," she muttered.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 17, 2019, 10:04:31 AM
"Mmm," Casiel grunted, closing his eyes. He'd barely slept the entire journey. "Missed you..." he murmured after a while.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 10:07:02 AM
Henry's eyes filled with concern, "Of course, I...I'm sorry," he replied. "Come, we'll go inside," he said then led her to the Inn they had been staying
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 10:09:43 AM
Giovanni carried Casiel up the stairs and smirked to himself when he heard those small words. He looked down at his love and swallowed hard, "I missed you too." he whispered. He then pushed the door open into his room at the Inn and rested him down on the bed before going to the window, putting a blanket over it.

Faline nodded at him and followed him along, looking at Elisha to make sure she followed as they went to the Inn. As they entered, she looked around and covered her chest with her arms, nervous of the people around to see her so indecently.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 10:16:08 AM
As they walked, Elisha took note of a sign that read as if it were English. The only reason she knew it wasn't, was because this was Greece; why would there be something in English? In French, perhaps, but not English. "Can you all... read the signs?" she asked quietly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 10:20:35 AM
"yes, we can read Greek apparently," Henry said, quietly, "except Gio," he added.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 10:24:01 AM
Faline looked at the signs and shook her head, "I can't either," she noted as they headed up to their room. When she was in the room, she sighed and laid back on the other bed, gasping and closing her eyes for a moment before sitting up and looking at Henry. He could heal her burns, she was sure. She bit her lip though as she saw everyone pile in this one room. She looked at him, "Could we go to a separate room? Just for a few minutes."
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 10:30:06 AM
Elisha closed the door behind them as they entered, but overheard Faline. She eyed them warily. Hopefully it was just a wound-healing thing; she already had one couple who were giving each other love-eyes to deal with, she didn't want to deal with a second.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 10:58:40 AM
Henry nodded and gently helped her up from the bed, "of course," he said and led her off. When they were alone, his eyes scanned the burns; he felt sick to his stomach just thinking about how painful they probably were. He started with her arms, his power making the burns slowly disappear.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 17, 2019, 11:01:49 AM
As Henry started to heal her arms, she breathed out slowly, closing her eyes. She whispered softly, “Did you see me? In your visions? Coming back to you? On the beach,?”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: kristina-la on January 17, 2019, 11:19:46 AM
Henry moved on to her other burns, frowning as he recalled all those days of not knowing what would happen. He shook his head, "I...I saw nothing. I had no idea if you would get back to me safely," Henry admitted
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 17, 2019, 11:50:47 AM
Mateline has held herself back at first, not wanting to shock anybody, but finally everyone seemed to be settling. She reached out and pulled Elisha into a hug, despite the woman’s sour face. “I’m so glad you’re alive.”
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Mara-la on January 17, 2019, 12:18:56 PM
It had been years since Elisha had been hugged. She forgot that she liked it. She stood there, arms down at her side, not knowing how to respond. Should she hug the girl back? No, that... that would be strange. “I’m glad I’m alive too,” she replied awkwardly.
Title: Re: Origins of Heroes Role Play
Post by: Emma-la on January 17, 2019, 12:20:21 PM
Mateline stepped away after a moment, but didn’t step away, simply to the side. “I wish we could have helped you get here. It couldn’t have been fun, obviously.”
