The Zou Empire had received quite a few bad omens and shocks as of late. Thefts were on the rise, the imperial palace had been broken into and a prisoner charged with assassination of an important political figure was freed. Just a few days ago, an important member of the Emperor's adviser's had been found dead, drowned in his own warehouse. To counter these troubling times, the imperial forces the be decided to hold a Dragon Dance Festival. This event of dancing dragons was a long standing tradition of the Zou people to ward off bad fortune and encourage a plethora of positive effects on everything from luck to fertility.

Despite the troubling times, no one could deny the vim and vigor such celebrations inspired. For one day everyone could but their normal jobs to rest and enjoy participating in the grand event full of laughs and good times. Stalls lined the streets selling foods and favors to lend to the atmosphere as fire works and confetti rained from the roof tops. The crafted dragons dancing along the main road highlighted the evening as it soared through the lantern-lit streets casting their blessings upon onlookers.

But the fake dragons "flying" on the ground could not compare to the black "dragon" soaring through the air. Occasionally silhouetted on the back drop of the full moon or bursting fireworks, Basil the black magi, flew through the air using gravity magic as he looked down over the Zou capital in disgust. The white ruhk were fluttering about in response to all the positive attitude and it was making Basil sick. "Tch...what a head ache..." His purpose here was merely a transitional one as he made his way towards the imperial palace in search of another candidate to accept the vessels of depravity held in the case he carried with magic. Little did he know, there was a potential candidate hiding among the happy festival goers below.

(Apologies for the long post. I felt if I stopped anywhere in-between there would be little for you to do.)

A host of dull red fireworks briefly illuminated the night before being joined by another round of blues and purples. The people briskly walked along the roads while often chatting with few significant others. It was a cultural event and not as raucous as a festival in another nation, but just as active and friendly in a sense.

Amid the rainbow crowding of kimonos coming through the gate and tree petals being tossed around and scattered on the sallow ground, a young Rikaru flitted through the crowd like a bumblebee in a flour patch. He forced a few people to part from the front of his path and rushing towards

There was always an aura of excitement and thrill to be had whenever he came to these festivals. He snickered, "Man, I love it when they hold these things! There is never an dull moment when you're here!" he smiled widely and just kept picking his way through the night

His speed cut through the throngs of people, knocking a few over as he went along. He slipped underneath the pink kimono of one girl and instantly heard a startled yelp. With a wide grin, he passed through the fabric and just kept running while quickly pocketing a small brown bag of gold coins.

He arrived to see the main part of the event: a long and vibrantly colored dragon being supported by a team of dancers. He stopped and took a moment to admire the craftsmanship as the master of the event had outdone himself in Rikaru's opinion.

Afterwards, he began his stride anew and ran until he reached his destination. In Rikaru's eyes, it wasn't the dragon or the culture here that was the most fun part of these events. They were interesting no doubt, but he craved challenge and adventure!

Just a short distance away, there was a hedge maze that became much busier during these festivals (for people who wanted to be alone at night) and so he found it more in tune with his scheming nature to mess with people in the dark while they wandered into it.

He found his way to the shaded area underneath a cherry tree to catch his breath. Once he got himself situated, he gazed around until he spotted a boy and a girl enter the gate and into the labyrinth. His gears started turning and he smiled darkly before strutting over to the bushes himself.

Suddenly, he felt a strong arm grab his wrist and held him firmly in place. Startled, Rikaru glance around and saw a very portly brown-haired man wearing a few golden bracelets around his arms and a brown loincloth.

"Hmm" the man grunted. Rikaru's eyes widened and he sweat-dropped nervously as the tense moment boiled over. A very deep drop in his gut occurred as the man didn't let go and in fact tightened his grip before hoisting him up by the wrist. The man reached up and pulled the staff off from where it had been hung from a strap on his back. A serious air overtook him and Rikaru realized a bit too late what was happening right now.

From around the corner emerged a tall stout man garbed in royal military clothing emerged.

"Uh Bao... are you sure that you didn't hit the sake earlier? Do you remember that the  conscription quota applies only to male boys over the age of 17. That looks like a girl to me... might be well over 17 but a girl no less." the man seemed to be pointing out like a curiosity of some sort. Rikaru's eyes bulged a bit and he realized what was happening and who these two were. A glimmer of hope remained though and he started to wriggle a bit, luckily hoping that they hadn't seen through him, but the grip didn't lessen.

"Not girl. Boy. Look." the gruff and heavy voice of the man boomed. In one hand was held his wrist, but Rikaru saw that the man carried a very large hammer on his back. He placed the hammer down, reached up, and promptly tore off Rikaru's vest.

If any thought Rikaru was a girl prior, they were corrected and his flat manly chest stood out for all passersby to see. Rikaru's mind instantly flew into overdrive and his fight responses kicked in before he could think. With the full force of panic, Rikaru kicked away with his leg, striking the man named Bao in the gut to loosen his grip before grabbing his rose-tipped staff.

"Kagayaku!"
Magoi 90 / 100


A blunt arc of wind struck Bao and the man beside him, dazing the one of them for several seconds while pushing back the other. Dropping to the ground, Rikaru rolled away and got back to his feet. He then fled away; running like a wounded animal into the hedge maze where the darkness would be able to shield him.

Rikaru took every turn he could, his mind whirring and adrenaline pumping. He raced through it, generally guessing the correct path forward while re-garbing himself. He managed to get through the maze and continued on into the forest where Bao would likely have a tougher time finding him. As he raced away, he began to become aware of something. He couldn't make it out completely, but he felt a .. shifting sensation that was occurring in the Rukh going on nearby.

He stopped in his tracks, having felt like he'd lost the demon named Bao and climbed one of the taller trees. From atop a riveting pine tree, Rikaru gazed around for anything that might be causing the sensation he was feeling. At first he spotted nothing until he began to squint in order to distinguish the rustles in his surroundings from the wind.

In the distance, he spotted a lone silhouetted figure flying through the air. He wasn't riding on anything at all, just gliding over the landscape while looking down on the festival

"Hmm Curious." he commented a second before he could hear a rumbling coming from about 30 yards behind him.

"Better follow him and keep moving. Don't want to run into Bao again." Nimbly, he jumped across a couple of trees to get a few yards before following in the general direction of the figure

Bao the Forge trampled through the undergrowth of the forest maze, swinging his mighty hammer like a madman incarnate.

The mass of iron and bronze metal smashed through the plants with ease and cleared the way for them to advance after the golden-haired boy. He focused steadfastly on catching his prey after donning his eponymous bull mask that had made so many men afraid of him.

He was nicknamed Bao the Forge for his skills as a smith, but back in his prime he was nicknamed 'Bao the Bronze' for his skill.

"Just you wait boy. I'm not letting you get away from me!"

With one swing of his hammer, he struck a large tree and caused it to shatter into a large cloud of splinter. The explosion of wood ripped the forest asunder and Bao just continued to trudge forward like a battering ram.

He was unhindered by the lack of visibility in the dark or the foreboding feeling of the forest at night.

Basil's flight path would have taken him past the forest and well out of sight in very little time at all considering the speed at which he was moving through the air, even with all the weight of the chest he carried slowing him down. Yet the sudden crashing blow Bao dealt to nature made enough sound which was distinctly contrast to those of the fire works going off to capture the Magi's attention. "Ah? What do we have here? Random act's of violence during a celebration of worms?" The man asked to no one in particular as the black ruhk fluttering around him seemed to become restless. Basil's eyes widened a bit after seeing the state of the rukh and then refocused when he realized that they were trying to tell him something. Was the one he had been looking for close by? Assuming that the source of the crashing and bashing down below was also the source of the black rukh's activity.

The magi turned around and flew towards the rampaging Bao as fast as he could and descended below the canopy of foliage placing himself right in the enraged fighter's path. The black chest of obsidian was dropped to the floor with a dull *thud* as Basil reached into his robes to reveal a twisted wand made from black oak with a deep purple gem held by a jade claw with silver tips which gave the appearance of sharpened nails. The trees in front of Basil were being blown into little more than kindling by the incredible strength of what or who ever was blasting towards him. Yet the magi stood there with all the confidence in the world as his magical medium aimed itself in the direction of the oncoming threat and surged with magoi. "Forest of Giants~" the spell name danced off the magi's tongue playfully but the commands it gave were no less authoritative for it. The rukh went to work mixing strength, life, and gravity magics to empower the trees in front of the caster. The forest quickly grew in size within that localized area causing the trees themselves to swell more than three times their size whilst increasing in density. They were then moved to intertwine and wrap around one another making them an even sturdier bulwark with which to halt Bao's progress.

The black smith's hammer would come to a sudden halt as it finally met one of Basil's unnaturally enhanced trees which were still brimming with strength magic making them far more difficult to destroy. "Now then, lets see who's on the other side..." Basil said as he willed the trees before him to part ways so he could meet the source of all this aggression. The magi was still entirely oblivious of Rikaru's presence giving the thief a situational advantage.

Flipping over the tree branches with gentle grace, Rikaru landed before rolling into a patch of shrubs just as the crashing sound of metal cracking wood broke the natural calm of the forest.

In the dark of night and even as he felt his life was in jeopardy, Rikaru never once felt a tinge of fear in his heart. On the contrary, this was his element in its most prolific where intrigue kept his mind thinking and the danger of the situation only served to excite him.

He heard the incoming of Bao's heavy footsteps, trampling through the forest with all the fury of a rampaging bull. With deft precaution, he rolled backwards and off the main path so as to minimize the chance that he'd be discovered quickly. He had a small deal of magoi left, but he'd seen earlier that Wind magic wasn't going to do anything more than annoy the juggernaut and perhaps buy him another few moments to slip away.

His train of thought was interrupted abruptly when the silhouette figure from before appeared. It was so sudden that Rikaru almost cast a spell at the new arrival, but he managed to keep himself back. The figure appeared gaunt in the darkness with nothing distinguishable until the moon passed over him. The figure was pale-skinned with a patch of black hair that blended in with the night. He seemed to be quite young as well, though the correct words were lost on Rikaru.

Suddenly, Bao emerged from a nearby path with his hammer shimmering brightly and ready to strike at the next target in front of him. After that, Rikaru watched in amazement as the figure simply raised a staff and the words that came from his mouth echoed with power and strength.

'Forest of Giants'

No sooner did he utter the chant did the trees on both sides of the path converge down on the path as they swelled to an enormous size, creating an effective barricade to Bao's advance. He heard a loud crash sound from the other side of the trees, but the defense held strong and the hammer was unable to punch through.

"Now then, lets see who's on the other side..." the figure spoke as he made the trees part and allow him to pass through. Rikaru stealthily came closer to the path as the magician exited through the trees. He tiptoed over the weeds and was careful to not ruffled the leaves scattered over the grounds. He moved closer until something caught his eye. The chest that had dropped where figure had touched down was still sitting there. Even in the backdrop of darkness, he could clearly make out the sight of a gleaming obsidian chest.

He glanced around quickly before hurrying over with a tempestuous smile upon his face. No matter what or who the new arrival was, Rikaru wasn't going to let an opportunity like this slip past him. Just as he began to open the box, he became aware of another feeling itching at the back of his mind. The rukh was shifting around it; a dark feeling was emanating from something inside and it was nearly overwhelming.

Despite the sensation, he didn't hesitate to pry open the chest and look inside. There were several objects inside, but only one caught his immediate attention. A spiral lance of pitch black metal seemed to be made from the very shadows of the night. He picked it up and examined it for a second before carefully closing the box again and taking a brief second to admire it.

Initially unaware of the thief's presence Basil put all of his attention on the behemoth of a man before him. Bao continued to try and smash the tree's in front of him even as they parted, "What's with these things!? No mere twigs should be able to stand before the great Bao's might!" The boasted shout was a bit of a stretch, but spoke to the man's pride which caused Basil to laugh for two reasons. The first being that this man 'Bao' was severely overestimating himself if he thought raw strength was all it took to best magic. The second being that the anger in his voice and the hubris of his futile actions were both potentially signs of depravity and the qualities required to induce it. "Hahahaha, for a guy that speaks of himself in the third person you're pretty simple minded huh?"

Bao ceased his attacks on the trees which simply kept getting repelled and looked at the stranger who had appeared before him. "Who the hell are you!? Friend of that thieving rat?" The anger and frustration in Bao's voice were palpable but the venom behind the words fell harmlessly on Basil's cool calm exterior. "Thief? I don't know what you're talking about. But~ Wouldn't you want the power to crush any rat that ever comes your way? Thieving or otherwise? With my kind of power you'll never have to worry about thi-..." Just as Basil was about to claim Bao would never have to worry about thieves again he turned to look back to the chest only to lay eyes on...a thief...thieving...despite all Basil's power. The Magi's mouth hung agape in shock before turning back to face Bao whom could still see nothing beyond all the giant trees due to lighting. "...I'll get back to you in a second." Basil said upon regaining his composure.

The Magi turned in the air and floated back through the barrier of trees flicking his wand behind him causing the forest of giants to move into position blocking Bao once more. The spell also grew in area moving to surround the man and keep him there so Basil wouldn't lose track of him. But for now there were slightly more pressing matters to tend to, such as the rogue pilfering Basil's chest of dark metal vessels. Since the Magi was flying with gravity magic there would be no sound to warn Rikaru of the angry magician approaching him from behind until Basil spoke, "Ahem...So you're the "thieving rat" the buffoon was talking about..." In his anger Basil allowed his magoi to build and stir which summoned a flock of pitch black rukh to flutter into existence surrounding himself and Rikaru in the black birds of depravity. "Give me on reason why I shouldn't tear your head from your shoulders!" The magi demanded currently knowing only that Rikaru was attempting to steal that which Basil could not afford to have stolen.

Rikaru gazed at the lance for only a brief second before there was a loud shake and rattling of the trees from the opposite side of the barricade. The figure appeared to be unperturbed and only seemed to be amused by the hammer-wielding foe.

Rikaru held the spiralling lance up close and for the first time felt the aura of power radiating from it. It was definitely something dark and had a foreboding feeling to it, but he was entranced nevertheless. It held him in place like no gold had ever done

"Who the hell are you!? Friend of that thieving rat?"

A second passed and the words echoed loud enough to snap Rikaru out of his trance. He glanced upward and his eyes finally met those of the shadow-like figure bearing the staff just as he had managed to approach him from his blind spot.

"Ahem...So you're the "thieving rat" the buffoon was talking about..."

Rikaru's reflexes reacted in an attempt to flee, but then the a vast flock of black depraved rukh surrounded them and he was locked into the confrontation with the stranger.

"Give me one reason why I shouldn't tear your head from your shoulders!"

Rikaru's expression was one of surprise for a moment. He was caught and the amount of black Rukh stirring around them was unexpected. It fluttered about; both violently and erratically. This stranger was undoubtedly powerful and he could sense that he had every intent of carrying out his threat.

Despite having a very real possibility of death thrust in his face, Rikaru's expression didn't darken or become one of fear. As a matter of fact, the thought excited and intrigued him as it brought a wide grin to his face. Even the wildly fluctuating cage of dark rukh neither frightened or scared him and only served. He gripped the lance tighter with his fist as his mind worked out a way to weasel himself out of this situation.

His wide and intrigued smile receded and he rose the lance  he had taken from the chest to hold it right by his side. Even though he'd only held it for a few seconds, the weapon felt absolutely perfect in his hands. It was dark and depraved, but it immediately felt like an extension of himself in every way.

"You won't kill me... simply because I want more. I'm a thief after all and I'm not about to surrender to Bao and be taken." Rikaru let his attention flit to the rampaging goliath behind the trees in the distance and his surroundings for a mere moment to ensure he wasn't open for another ambush

His tone was simple, though it carried a tinge of the arrogance he now felt. Indeed, the new addition made him feel like he could take on the world by himself if he wanted to. Even as his confidence shot to new levels, he knew he couldn't beat him. Through the arrogance and the surge of excitement he was feeling, he still manage to keep himself somewhat clear-headed. He faced down the black-haired magician, staring him straight in the eyes and knew he probably would be outmatched.

"I'm curious though, what's a person like you doing with something like this?"

Then the crashing began again and the hammer of Bao could be heard smashing up against the trees that had arisen to block the behemoth's path. Rikaru couldn't tell if Bao was getting anywhere fast against the enchanted bulwark, but his temper certainly wasn't being thwarted by the spell. Rikaru kept his gaze leveled at the spellcaster, wondering how he would respond.

"You won't kill me... simply because I want more. I'm a thief after all and I'm not about to surrender to Bao and be taken."

The response was not what Basil had expected in the least. He rose an eyebrow at the stranger's hubris and fought back a laugh into a slight snicker. The black Magi honestly wasn't sure what he found more humorous. The arrogant confidence Rikaru showed in the face of power far beyond his comprehension or the fact that he thought Basil had any allegiance to the muscle bound Bao whom was still trying desperately to break free from the cage of giant trees. It was true that the artifact now held in Rikaru's hands was a weapon of immeasurable power and it was true that Basil had just been speaking to Bao. However the thief wouldn't even know the first thing about how to use the Black Metal Vessel unless he had knowledge of magoi and Bao was now Basil's captive in a sense.

"I'm curious though, what's a person like you doing with something like this?"

The words were spoken as if Rikaru even really knew what "that" was. "Pssh, your ability to read the situation is pretty poor, ya' know. But I'll acknowledge that you have better qualities than that rampaging bull over there..." Basil said in reference to Bao as he seemed to relax a little. "You can run away if you want, but I'll just chase you down and give you a low death even your worst enemies wouldn't wish upon you." A bored tone laced the Magi's voice as he really didn't feel like going through the trouble even if hearing someones agonized screams of pain would bring him some small piece of pleasure. But as the sentence ended a devilish smirk played across Basil's lips and his eyes narrowed slightly as an idea came to mind. "...but I'll let you keep that weapon if you simply do something for me."

The Magi turned his body side ways so he could point towards Bao's direction while still looking directly at Rikaru and grinned as he gave an ultimatum, "If you go in there and kill that man, not only can you keep the weapon, but I'll also tell you my name and why I have it~" Meanwhile Bao continued to smash his hammer into the trees and finally managed to break a small enough opening so he could peer into the dark forest and spot the two speaking. "I knew you were helping that rodent! Both of you stay right there! I'll rip your intestines out and strangle the both of you with em'!" The beast of a man shouted in a furious rage before he returned to hammering an exit for himself into the wall of trees. They would not hold for long and Basil was now floating upwards along with the box so he would be safe from Bao's animosity. "You better decide quickly."

Rikaru stood by as he was, a rather quizzical expression on his face.

Basil's reaction certainly wasn't what Rikaru had expected, but he waved it off nevertheless. Perhaps he was in a bit of a playful mood and felt like he could further tease the stranger, but then thought against it.

Somehow though, he got the feeling that the stranger was misunderstanding something between them, but for the time at least it seemed he had avoided facing down two enemies at the same time. For some reason, he felt a lot like he was merely a toy for the mage.

"Pssh, your ability to read the situation is pretty poor, ya' know. But I'll acknowledge that you have better qualities than that rampaging bull over there..."

Then again, maybe having himself misunderstood wasn't such a bad thing after all. He thought to himself that it might work in his favor.

"You can run away if you want, but I'll just chase you down and give you a low death even your worst enemies wouldn't wish upon you."

"...but I'll let you keep that weapon if you simply do something for me."

"If you go in there and kill that man, not only can you keep the weapon, but I'll also tell you my name and why I have it~"

Rikaru's expression of amusement changed to something more of a 0000

Rikaru listened intently as the stranger spoke.

"If you go in there and kill that man, not only can you keep the weapon, but I'll also tell you my name and why I have it~"

Rikaru's expression of amusement changed to something more resembling the cunning trickster he was; a broad smile adorning his face. He didn't have any intent on running away from this without having his questions answered. There was a lot more mystery to this and if he played his cards right, he might actually end up benefitting a lot from this ordeal. Far more than he had planned.

He hoisted up the lance he had taken.

"Hehe. For something like this, its hard for to say no. I never assumed though that you had any allegiance with Bao anyways, you're far too clever. I was just confirming whether or not you were going to stop me from getting out of here."

He turned about-face and readied himself with his newfound weapon to face the rampaging bull.

((Forgive the shorter posts. Going into NPC combat mode where I'm forgoing most fluff/flavor text in favor of giving combat information as clearly as possilbe.))

Just as the challenger hoping to win more information from Basil turned around Bao finally smashed is way through the barrier of wood. The large beast of a man emerged from the hole he'd made and took a step through it before brandishing his weapon only for it to settle on his shoulder. The bull's expression had long since contorted to show even more anger and frustration, his animosity brimming from wide blood shot eyes. The massive hammer he held in hand rose as he held it over head and shouted, "Finally, the little thief stopped running like a coward! Do you have ANY idea how angry you've made me!?" The hammer was then brought down to the earth with a powerful blow that caused the ground to tremor and crumble in a straight line towards Rikaru at 20m/s quickly covering the 5 meters that were between them. This ability would make the ground break and churn beneath Rikaru's feet potentially snaring him for one post if he did not dodge. With the thief's footing destroyed Bao would then lunge forwards with an upwards swing of his hammer sending debris flying into the air towards his target at 15m/s threatening to deal C-tier damage if Rikaru didn't get out of the way.

"Finally, the little thief stopped running like a coward! Do you have ANY idea how angry you've made me!?"

Rikaru watched as the hammer came smashing down on the ground and the subsequent ripples crossing the gap of space between them. He had seconds to react and did the first thing his body could do appropriately. He lunged to the side in order to avoid the worst of the shock and came to a rolling stop several feet away.

After his rotation ended, he looked up and saw the large man charging up again with the hammer held high. It was like a blast, exploding various bits of debris at high velocity towards him.

He had little time to work his way out of this. If he stayed in close combat, the man would surely win this fight with ease. Plus, he still needed to figure out how his new weapon worked if it was going to be of much use to him. With no other option, he channeled more Magoi to generate a small amount of wind around himself. With the speed that th

Surrounded by wind, he propelled himself off to the right by 4 m/s until coming to a stop 10 meters away and out of the way of the linear path the debris had taken. As quickly as it had arrived, the wind dissipated and he had only a brief reprieve before the behemoth could make another move.

With a small window of opportunity present, Rikaru examined again his newest addition. It was beautiful to his eyes and he only wondered now what he could do with it. He channeled a bit of magoi into it and waited for an effect to occur. He had no clue what could happen to him next.

Following Bao's initial gambit a considerable amount of dust had risen in front of him as a result of flinging the ground at his opponent. The billowing cloud of particles would obscure Bao's vision forcing him to wade his way through it or wait for it to clear. Patience was the last virtue on the large hammer wielding beast of a man's mind however. Bao's large arms waved the dust cloud away from his face as he stepped into its threshold and took a few steps on the crumbled earth. By the time he emerged from the other side of the cloud, Rikaru would have already put more distance between himself and the enraged Bao. Bloodshot eyes filled with rage would scan right and then left before spotting Rikaru holding his new toy at the ready. "You think you can kill me with that tiny tooth pick of a weapon? A real weapon has POWER. Like this!" Bao then began running towards Rikaru at 5m/s giving him only a couple seconds of precious time to prepare for the large vertical hammer smash Bao was looking to perform. The attack itself would occur at 10m/s and was aimed to hit Rikaru on the head as if he could be diven into the earth like a wooden post.

He would not have made it had he made a half-hearted attempt to dodge Bao's hammer. It was traveling too fast and it would have easily smashed him into tiny pieces. His Borg would have afforded him some protection, but he didn't want to bet that the hammer wouldn't have sent him flying.

He poured his Magoi into the dark lance and waited for something to occur. The Lance's barreling spiral began to rotate ferociously all of a sudden and a greasy black liquid dripped down the handle, leaving streaks of the mysterious substance dribbling down his arm.

The lance vibrated and hummed a bit before its transformation began. The black liquid evaporated into mist and the lance sucked it up like a vacuum. In no time, it had become slimmer and more like a blade rather than a barreling shell.
