Talon Posted March 11, 2004 Share Posted March 11, 2004 [color=teal][i]Thousands of years ago, there was a mystical race called "Aeons", the most powerful beings in existence.These magic-infused creatures, while extraordinarily powerful, were not immortal. They left a legacy in items called "relics", items that contained the power, and often the very spirit, of the Aeons that forged them, before they died out. One such Aeon, the most powerful of them all, was Valen. He forged the most powerful relic ever known, the mighty DewPrism. This item contained the essence of the universe. It held the powers of time, space, matter, and energy. It could bend anything to its holder's will. But the power was too great for even Valen himself. The other Aeons, growing envious and fearful of Valen, sought to destroy him. They attacked, but only managed to succeed in destroying his body. Valen sealed his own spirit in the DewPrism, but not before insuring his spirit's rebirth through the creation of "puppets". These puppets had a shard of the DewPrism, called a Lifestone, embeded in their foreheads and, under the right conditions, would awaken to serve their duty to their master..... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ But their master's plan was foiled. One individual puppet, named Ruecian, awakened and began to search for one of his brothers, the puppet with the largest Lifestone, and awaken him so that Ruecian's own lost power would be restored. However, it took him ninety-five years to find his brother and set him free. But somehow, Ruecian's brother was memoryless. Ruecian, in a rage, stormed away from his brother's resting place and found some more powerful followers, ModeMaster, PsychoMaster, and TrapMaster. But he could not find his brother again. His powers would not allow it. But then one day, two years later, he discovered his brother in the home of a young woman somewhere in the snowy northlands called Gradia. Rue, Ruecian's brother, rushed out to investigate the source of the noise the farm animals were causing and found Ruecian. Not knowing what else to do, Rue defended himself against Ruecian's attacks....until Claire hit Ruecian in the back with a hoe. Ruecian carelessly backhanded Claire with his overlarge Right Arm of Death, killing her. Rue, in a rage, unwittingly unleashed his great powers and defeated Ruecian. Ruecian fled as Rue mourned his so-called "sister" and learned of his newfound power to transform his body into that of any other creature. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rue set out to revive Claire through an item he knew only as "the relic". Over three years, he found no leads. One day, on an island known as Carona, Rue found a man named Klaus, who knew how to find the "relic". With a young woman named Mint, whose sister was the Princess of East Heaven, Rue travelled the island, searching for the components to the "Prima Doll", a puppet with the capability to unseal the barrier that held Valen and his DewPrism in an impregnable dimension. Mint, whose sights were no less than World Domination, was eventually disappointed in her goal, but she managed to live with it. Rue, however, revived Claire after Valen murdered Ruecian. Rue, having just acknowledged Ruecian as his brother, fell into another rage and nearly destroyed Valen. However, Valen's new god-like powers allowed him to seal himself and his DewPrism into the dimension again to wait for another servant to awaken him. Years passed. Mint assumed the throne of East Heaven with her sister, Maya, as joint queens. Rue and Claire were married soon after leaving Carona. It seemed the realm was at peace, for once in thousands of years. But something Valen didn't expect occured. The Book of Genesis, a powerful relic once held by the warrior tribe known as the Amazons of Iglesi, was destroyed near the island of Carona in a violent explosion some time after Valen resealed himself. The Book's explosion tore a rift into Valen's dimension, and all of his living puppets now know where their master is. Some are trying to revive him once and for all, others shall attempt to steal his power....... Still other nations, East Heaven and the Amazons in particular, are hiring mercenaries and spies to send to safeguard the tomb, to make certain that Valen never again rises from his dimension.......[/i][/color] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [color=navy][i]Reth stood outside the cabin, staring at the stars. The small, red gem in his forehead once again began to sting as he looked towards the south.[/i] [b]Reth:[/b]Argh! Father, my head! It burns again..... [b]Rue:[/b]I know, Gareth. Mine, too. [i]Reth blanched at the mention of his real name and sighed. He pulled the Arc Edge out of the tree and tossed it back to his father.[/i] [b]Reth:[/b]Dad, you gotta be more careful with the Edge when you chop wood. You're gonna make it go dull. [b]Claire:[/b]Rue, Reth, dinner's ready! [b]Rue and Reth:[/b]Alright! Deer stew!!!! [i]All thoughts of burning gems faded as the two men rushed to the cabin. Rini, Reth's sister, grinned as she saw her brother grab a large bowl of stew and downed it in a single gulp.[/i] [b]Rue:[/b]Damn, boy, you eat like that all the time and we're not gonna have any deer in these woods anymore! [i]Rini giggled as her brother jumped up and bowed, apologizing, then helping himself to a second bowl. Then she saw something strange.[/i] [b]Rini:[/b]Daddy, what's that? [i]Rue and Claire turned to see what looked like a kitten's head with bat wings hovering over the floor. Rue gasped and turned around.[/i] [b]Mel:[/b]Nice to see you again, Rue. [b]Claire:[/b]Fancy Mel!? What's happened?! [i]The magician sighed and sat down between the two warrior children and told the story.....[/i][/color] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [b]Necessary Junk[/b] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [color=crimson][b]Name:[/b]Of course.

[i]Berserker:[/i]Reth alone inherited his father's incredible strength in rage. Nearly invincible in this mode, nature made up for this by making Reth naturally calm.When in this form, he becomes capapble of cleaving through anything, even the densest metals, as well as becoming able to lift up to forty times his weight and hurling it at least a mile away. Unfortunately, he inherited a calm nature. An EXTREMELY calm nature. As in only seeing somebody injured for no reason sparks a MINOR level of Berserker. [b]Appearance:[/b]See attachment.

He has vowed never to use his skills on the just. He is a gentle soul. [b]Biography:[/b]Born two years after the DewPrism incident resurrected his mother, Claire, Reth was brought into the world a mere three seconds before his sister, Rini. He grew up admiring his father and took up swordsmanship. As he journeyed from boy to man, he eventually began to wear a bandanna around his head to hide his red Lifestone, which was, in Reth's opinion, keeping him from getting dates. Along the way, he met a virtuous thief and assassin named Nobuna. With Nobuna as a mentor, Reth left home for five years, returning when he was fifteen. When he had left, he had vowed to become a treasure hunter that would make his parents proud. When he returned, his mother had started an inn and his father was a peacekeeper for their new village. Rini was a serving girl at the inn and thanked her brother countless times for saving her from the lecherous hands of drunken men. He had become a skilled thief, and often went to ruins to recover some treasure or artifact for the village museum. It was a well-paying job, but Reth's desires were to have adventure. An opportunity for such struck when Mel arrived, telling the story of the book's explosion and its results to Rue and Claire. The family packed up, closed the inn, and set out for Carona to keep an eye on Valen's Tomb.....[/color] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Join up and have fun!!
