The Magus of Flowers Appears!

Post by Parius on Sun Jul 01, 2018 4:27 am

Ah, the vibrant city of Mith Verdanus. It's been a while, eh, Caith Pulag? Thought a young looking man, bringing his hand up to pet the creature on his shoulder. The man had long, messy white hair, reaching down his back, even in it's ponytail state. He was pale, and his eyes were currently two different colors. The left one was yellow, and the right one was purple. He was wearing his usual outfit, of a skin tight, sleeveless black shirt, over which he wore a white cloak, with a frilled deep V collar of multiple colors. The colors were currently white, and red. The cloak had a clasp, made of a golden, silky material, tied in a three loop bow, with an X made of the same material over that. He then had a white hood, which also covers his shoulders, tied by a pink knot, but also having two x’s next to the knot, with blue fabric hanging behind them. The shoulders of the hood also had pink, feather like protrusions under them. He then had a pair of black, very wide trousers, with a golden six-pointed log on the front of them, and a pair of black boots, with intricate designs in a lesser shade of black on them. The creature on his shoulder was the same size as a small cat, and it's fur was the same color as Merlin's hair, and it also had rabbit-like ears. This man was the Eldari, Merlin. The Magus of Flowers.

As Merlin walked around town, he didn't remember what had possessed him to make the journey here, but he did know it had something to do with the messenger that the Golden Council had sent to his tower. He flew off, in his falcon form, and had simply laded here, and was enjoying every second of it. Most of the humans here had no idea who he was, which was fun in its own right, but they were also some of the most artistic, some of them even matched the Eldari artisans Merlin knew, back home. Lost in his own world, he didn't even notice the person coming towards, and bumped into them. Merlin, gracefully, stayed on his feet, but shook his head, to come back to the real world. Holding out his hand to the person, he smiled, and said, "Sorry. I must've been lost in my mind. I usually am more aware than that." He blinked, changing his eyes to both be blue.

Re: The Magus of Flowers Appears!

Post by Orgoth on Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:19 am

In the main cemetery of the Human city of Mith Verdanus, a lone figure in a white cloak with the hood drawn stood in a solitary vigil. She read and re-read the inscription on the memorial stone in front of her. It read: In loving memory of Karl and Catherine Grayston of Grayston Farm. Survived by one daughter. The figure stooped and placed a single sunflower on the shelf in front of the stone, and quietly recited an Eldari prayer of safe travels. It was a beautiful day in the southern region of the Kingdom of Mondolin, and a bird's mournful song carried across the cemetery, as if nature itself was aware of the reflection of the lone figure. Squaring her shoulders and taking a deep breath, the figure turned and walked away from the stone and the cemetery. Kairi Thorne left the past, and focused on the future.

Kairi had come to Mith Verdanus, as she had done regularly for the last few years of her life, to visit family. She had believed she had no more family, and even when her adoptive mother Randalla Thorne(whose name Kairi had taken as a sign of gratitude and respect) informed her that she had tracked down relatives of Kairi's biological mother, Kairi hesitated to act. She was sure they had forgotten all about her. But at Randalla's urging, Kairi traveled to Mith Verdanus to meet with William Dale, Catherine's brother and Kairi's uncle. Uncle William was overcome with joy at the discovery of his niece, and radiated the pure good that made Kairi take pride in the fact that her mother's family was so warm and safe.

Kairi had bidden goodbye to Uncle William, and decided to visit the marketplace to stock up on travel supplies for the journey back to Sunshield Hold. That was her new home now, but it was a safe and warm feeling to know that she also had a home here too. She was broken out of her reverie by a man walking straight into her. She kept her balance and turned to see the man apologize and extend his hand in friendship. Kairi took the hand and shook amicably. "It's alright. I was daydreaming a little as well. My name is Kairi. Kairi Thorne." She looked at the man's appearance. He was definitely an Eldari, but there was something familiar about him. She inquired politely. "Excuse me, but you wouldn't be Merlin, by any chance? The Magus of Flowers?" She was sure it was him. She had read about his exploits in the library at Sunshield Hold, but she had never met him in person.

Merlin nodded at Kairi, as she said she was daydreaming. "Ah, my favorite past-time. Don't let me stop you. that's where some of my favorite ideas came from." He scratched Caith Pulag, as she, correctly, asked if he was Merlin. "One point. You are correct! It is rare for people to know me by sight, much less a human. Where did you find out about me, if I may ask? I love learning new things." And he was correct. Any chance to learn something new, Merlin would take it, and if the human's had any info on him, he would very much like to see it.

Merlin's head then cocked to the side, as he looked at Kairi's sword. "If you do not mind me asking, Ms. Kairi Thorne, but what brings you to this town of art? Someone holding a sword like that, I would think you would be travelling the Freelands, not admiring the art here, in Mith Verdanus." Merlin wasn't trying to be mean, but the sword had now peaked his interest.

Kairi bowed in polite deference when Merlin confirmed his identity. "I thought so! It is an honor to meet you sir." Merlin inquired about just how Kairi knew about him. A fair question, she thought, as it would not be as common perhaps for a Human to know of him. But know of him she did, having studied Eldari history in great detail in Sunshield Hold. She regarded the elder man politely. "Ah, that is due to my studies in Sunshield Hold. I found the Eldari and their magical innovations to be very interesting. You in particular, if you don't mind me saying. Your exploits during the Second War are well-documented, and there are not many Eldari that can change their eye color at will." She eyed the staff Merlin carried. She had heard of the magical experiment he had carried out to empower the staff, at the cost of his own power. The Merlin of today was only a fraction as powerful as the Merlin of legend, but that didn't diminish Kairi's respect for the Eldari mage.

Merlin then inquired about Kairi's reason for being in Mith Verdanus, paying particular attention to Starlight, her sword that was sheathed at her hip. "That is true. I do normally travel the Free Lands. I undertake missions for the Order of the Sun. But I have made a point to visit here whenever I can. This was the birthplace of my parents, and I still have family here." Kairi looked a little sheepish. "I was actually just coming from my uncle's house, when I was caught gazing at the colors of the plaza, and then I ran into you."

Merlin raised an eyebrow. "Sir? No, no, no. I am not "sir". I am simply Merlin, nothing else." She told him, of her studies in Sunshield Hold. "Ah, a human after my own heart. Magic is simply wonderful, is it not?" Merlin asked, going past the mention of the Second War. He raised his hand, quite theatrically. "Magic is a process to make dreams reality. My eye color changing is simply the tip of the iceberg, my girl. Magic is as diverse as the races here on Ka'Lesa, and some places farther beyond." 


Kairi stated that she was in the Order of the Sun. "I've heard of your order. I pondered joining, as your values match my own, but I much prefer my freedom." Merlin nodded at her. "This city is quite fun to look at. Do not feel bad for looking at it. I've been visiting this city for years, and it always excites me, for some reason." Merlin looked around. "It is strange for me to visit a town more than a few times. Hmm." He pondered this, rubbing his chin.

Kairi looked sheepish when Merlin corrected her for calling him 'sir'. "Oh, I do apologize sir- I mean Merlin." Kairi noticed the great mage avoided the mention of the war. Maybe the memories of the war caused him pain. Kairi could sympathize. The burden of memory could weigh down even the strongest of minds. Merlin instead preferred to talk about magic, and he did so with a dramatic flair that wouldn't look out of place on a stage. Kairi's smile was genuine. "Fascinating, truly. It is rare to meet someone with such an open viewpoint."

Merlin mentioned that he had been tempted by the Order of the Sun, but preferred his freedom. Kairi looked thoughtful. "I understand. One doesn't have to be attached in order to do good." The conversation then moved onto Mith Verdanus. The City of Color, as it is known across Ka'Lesa, was truly a wonder of art and beauty. Artists and patrons from all across the Kingdom of Mondolin traveled here, with regular festivals and events being held in the Amaranth Square, where Kairi and Merlin stood. The Eldari mentioned how he never ventured to a town more than a few times, with Mith Verdanus being the only exception. Kairi gazed around the square as she spoke. "I'm not surprised. Many are drawn here by the city's beauty. I myself initially only came here to visit family, but once I did I found myself spending more and more time here." Kairi inclined her head slightly. "I suppose in a world as chaotic and dangerous as ours, things of true beauty are all the more captivating."

Merlin chuckled, at her slip-up. How he loved to make people uncomfortable. He nodded at her words. "I am considered.....quite an oddity amongst my people. However, my viewpoints have helped the Eldari out, I like to think. In fact, because of it, I may be able to visit the Heanta city, Av'eden." He put Caih Pulag on the ground, as he listened to her. The creature looked at him, before bounding off. He shook his head, before turning back to Kairi. "Indeed. The world has grown quite chaotic. I'm wondering why that is." 


He turned back to her. "I'm quite famished. You wouldn't mind taking me somewhere with some good food, would you?" Merlin had been here quite often, but even he didn't know everything the city had to offer. And, it would allow him to continue this conversation, and it was quite captivating, if only for him. Kairi was interesting to Merlin, only because she knew about Eldari history. "If not, we could get some tea. I am always up for a good cup of tea."

Kairi listened attentively as Merlin explained how he had been trying to spread his viewpoint among the Eldari, in the hoppe of softening their stance towards the Heanta. He also expressed a desire to visit the Heanta capital of Av'Eden. She pondered this for a moment as she watched him put his companion on the ground, only for the creature to wander off into the city. He wondered aloud about the reasons that the world was in such a chaotic state. Kairi had wondered that herself, but deep down she knew that it was the very differences in people that Merlin cherished that caused much of the chaos. "I suppose most people lack the wisdom... actually I believe perspective is a better term. People perhaps lack the perspective to see past what makes us unique in order to embrace what we have in common."

Merlin suddenly brought the discussion back to reality when he mentioned that he was hungry, asking if she knew a good place to get food or tea. Kairi nodded and smiled warmly. "Of course. I know just the place." Kairi brought the Eldari to a small food and drink outlet that overlooked Amaranth Square. She had visited this place before, often marveling at the view. She took her seat as a young girl approached to take their order. Kairi looked at Merlin. "They serve very good food here, and they have herbal teas that are good for thinking." Kairi ordered a hot cross bun and a cup of Singalian tea, then let Merlin decide. When their food and drinks arrived, she studied the bun for a moment and sipped her tea. "So, what is the Golden City like?" Kairi had never been, as it was highly uncommon for non-Eldari to visit the fabled Gilderan, the Golden City of the Eldari.
