Pathways (Parius)

Post by Orgoth on Tue Oct 23, 2018 2:51 am

The sun beamed in through the open window in the office of Odric Mantell, the Captain-Commander of the Sunlight Covenant. The silver-haired man peered at the white-clad woman in front of him through equally silver eyes. He spoke with a certain gravitas that a man in his official position warranted, but there was equally level of warmness that always made Kairi Thorne feel comfortable in his presence. "You are to meet Shran in Dungard in four days. He has found some leads regarding the Dying Suns that I think may interest you." Kairi looked up, suddenly intrigued. "Thassa?" Odric took a sip of tea before replying. "The message did not say. However it is likely he has found something. Shran is not one to take action rashly." Kairi nodded and rose to her feet. "I understand, sir." She bowed politely and excused herself, striding purposefully towards the door.

Out in the hallway, Kairi took a deep breath before heading for the mess hall. She would need to be at her peak in order to complete the mission at hand. Whatever Shran's discovery, she would be ready. Trusting her reliable friend, soup, Kairi took a seat at one of the long tables in the mess hall. The hall was quiet, all of the recruits were out training and patrols had already left. She delved into her soup, tucking a stray lock of hair behind her ear. She heard a familiar voice suddenly, and looked up to see a familiar face to match the voice. "Arthur?" She stood and bowed politely to the blonde-haired young man before taking one of his hands in a warm handshake. "How are you, Arthur?" She released his hand and peered into the young man's green eyes with a warm smile. "It's been a while. Please, have a seat." She sat back down with her soup and waited eagerly for whatever news Artorias Ferrum Aurora had to share.

Strolling through the Sunshield Hold, Arthur had just returned from a small mission, that had taken him far away from his home base. He had a need for food, and a bed, in that order. He had taken off his white plate armor in his room, and only wore his black breeches, his white shirt, and his blue coat. He wore his blades, as he almost never went anywhere without them. He made his way to the mess hall, waving to some of the members who recognized him. As he got there, he noticed that a familiar person was already there. That person was Kairi Thorne, one of the first people he met, when he got to the Sunlight Covenant. 

Making his way over, he said, "Hello Kairi." She looked at him, before getting up, and shaking his hand. "I'm fine. I just got back from a mission, actually." He took the seat offered to him, forgetting about his hunger for now. "It has been a while, hasn't it? Has anything new happened to you since we last spoke?" Arthur had some news, but he wanted to hear from Kairi, before giving it away.

Arthur sat in the offered seat and replied that he was just back from a mission. He also commented on the length of time between now and their last interaction, and asked Kairi for news. She pushed her empty soup bowl to one side and folded her hands on the table. "Not much really. Until now that is. I mainly split my time between patrols and training recruits. If the talent of this latest batch is anything to go by, our positions might be in trouble in a few years." She chuckled before continuing.

"I'm actually heading out tomorrow myself. I've got a mission in the Free Lands. I'm meeting one of our scouts in Dungard. Says he's found something interesting." Kairi tucked another stray lock of hair behind an ear. "So what about you? Any stories from the world out there?"

Arthur nodded, at Kairi's response. "Well, not everyone can be an amazing genius like myself." He laughed. He was joking, of course. He knew how bad he was when he first made his way to the Covenant. "Tomorrow then? And Dungard? Hmm. Well, if I hadn't just got back, I would offer to go with you. But, I'm in real bad need of some rest. Walking as far as I did, with no horse is quite a toll on my feet."


Arthur put his hand on his chin, when she asked about any news with him. "Any stories? Not really. The only exciting thing that happened was that my younger sister, Lily, started to write me again. My older sister, Leona, is too busy, being a knight, but Lily said they were both doing fine." He put his hands on the table. "But, she told me something that's been on my mind since I left on that last mission." He looked Kairi in her eyes. "I have a half-brother, apparently. My father had a child sometime after I left Mith Silvanus. I don't know anything other than his first name. Nichol." He paused, to see Kairi's reaction. "I'm still not sure how to take the news."

Kairi nodded at Arthur's response. "Ah, don't worry about it. Besides, it wouldn't be fair if you hogged all of the fun." She smiled warmly. "I have to get out there sometimes too." Arthur then moved on to some more news that he had to share. He mentioned that his younger sister had started writing to him again. "That's good to hear. If you are anything to go by, I'd wager your sister would be a fine knight indeed."

Arthur then mentioned a more important piece of news that he had found out from his sister, the existence of a half-brother. Kairi's expression turned pensive. "I see. It is a tough situation, to be sure. I know what happened between you and your family, particularly your father." Kairi hesitated for a second, then reached over and gave Arthur's hand a reassuring squeeze. She had worked hard to overcome the mental barriers she had acquired from her own turbulent past, and though she still wasn't quite there yet, Kairi was improving at personal contact with others. "The only peace of advice I will offer is this. Don't be so quick to dismiss this new half-brother. The way I see it, he didn't ask to be a product of your father. He could well be in the same boat as you. Just try and keep an open mind, is what I'm trying to say I suppose."

Kairi looked out the mess hall door and saw that a wave of recruits were coming in for lunch after their morning training. She looked at Arthur with a glint in her eye. "Arthur, I have an idea if you're willing." She gestured towards the door. "How do you fancy a quick spar. I know you're tired from your mission but I think it might help to take your mind off things. I want to see how much you've improved since last time."

Arthur nodded at Kairi's kind words. "Thanks. I'm sure Lily would be a fine knight. I know Leona is, she wouldn't be a knight of Mondolin if she wasn't. Arthur smiled, as Kairi squeezed his hand, and gave him some advice. "I'll try and take your advice. At least I know he's out there, so I could take the time, and try and find him. I have also been meaning to visit Mith Sylvanus. I would very much like to see my sisters again. And have a word with my father." Arthur glanced at the recruits, as they walked in. He looked back at Kairi, as she asked for a quick spar. "Sure, I have no problems with it. I'm just not grabbing my armor, though. Too tired." He chuckled. 

Arthur got up, and walked with Kairi to the training area. There were a few other people in there, but not alot. "Well, at least we won't bother everyone with this." Arthur drew Dies, and got into a ready battle stance. "I hope I won't dissapoint." He laughed, and charged at Kairi, aiming a few slashes, testing her defenses. He knew that he had gotten better since the last time they had sparred, but he also figured that Kairi had gotten better, in the same amount of time.

Kairi glanced around the training courtyard. Many of the recruits had left to get lunch, as she had suspected. A few loitered around though, their gazes becoming locked on the courtyard when Kairi and Arthur entered. They had both garnered reputations as skilled fighters, and the recruits looked on, perhaps looking to learn something. Arthur drew his white sword and set himself into a battle stance. Kairi chuckled at his comment. "Likewise." Then the fight began as Arthur charged at her. She smiled and braced herself.

The blows came quickly, and Kairi was impressed at how much Arthur had increased his speed and strength since they last fought. She had chosen not to get her armor or her shield, so this was pure weapon combat. She parried the blows with her sword, noting the increased speed and force of the attacks. Kairi backed off, transform her sword into its spear form. She then lunged at Arthur, probing his defenses in return with a flurry of thrusts aimed for his limbs.

Arthur smiled, as none of his attacks seemed to get through Kairi's defenses. As usual. He thought, as she switched her sword into it's spear form. "Oh no you don't." He said, as he drew Noctis. She aimed a few strikes at his limbs, and seemed to be testing his reflexes. He blocked most of them, but some got through, and Arthur gained some cuts on his arms. Even now, she can get through my defenses? He thought. He shrugged it off, and came at Kairi with a renewed sense of purpose. He would try and hit her limbs now, before stopping completely, then aiming a kick at her midsection. if it connected Arthur would kind of hang back, and wait for Kairi's next move. If she came at him, once she got close, Arthur would unleash his Solis Fulgo, a pushback move with a range of 5 feet in front of Arthur. 

(OOC: Sorry bout the crap post.)

Kairi connected with a couple of glancing blows to Arthur's arms. She noted that he had improved his form tremendously since the last time they sparred, tightening up his defense. He came at her again, this time there was a bit more spirit behind the blows. Kairi dealt with the blows, though not as comfortably as the previous salvo by any stretch. Arthur's speed was almost blinding, but it was the sudden change of pace that finally pierced Kairi's defense. Arthur's flurry of blows abruptly ended, and the split-second confusion the pause caused allowed Arthur's kick to connect flush with Kairi's midriff. The kick knocked the wind out of Kairi and put her on her backside.

Kairi rose immediately to her feet, breathing heavily to try and get some wind back in her sails. She smiled at Arthur approvingly. "That was impressive. A nice switch-up of techniques and speed." Kairi readied herself for her response. "Time to step it up a level." Kairi sprung into action, advancing on Arthur as she activated her Total Defense ability to dramatically increase her Agility. She tried to assail him with another assortment of spear thrusts, but she was caught by Arthur's Solis Fulgo, knocking her back. However, Kairi's enhanced Agility allowed her to react quicker than normal, sticking her spear into the ground and halting her flight halfway.

When the attack ended, Kairi used her spear to launch herself at Arthur, shifting her spear back into sword mode to launch an assault on Arthur's defenses. She avoided power strikes and instead focused on rapid strikes, utilizing her agility. She targeted his limbs again with strikes before back-flipping out of range. When she landed, Arthur might notice her eyes glowing for a second before she set off her own Solar Flare, which would blur Arthur's vision for a post if he didn't avoid it in time. Kairi would then wait patiently for the response.
