Darkness presided over the Plains of Magnostadt, casting a dismal taste in the air. The black void that hovered above the land had swallowed the moon and all the stars, smothering their luminous allure that was able to guide travelers along their journey. The tall grass swayed and danced to the eastern breeze, singing soothing melodies that carried like a mother's lullaby. The night was pleasant to a certain blue magician who had been walking the Plains for days. He had been searching for his magic instructor, but had been unable to locate him. He knew his instructor enjoyed traveling the Plains, yet the land was vast. Like the years it would take for the tides to chip away at a stone, Adrastos felt that it would take a lifetime of searching to find his teacher. There had to be a better way; a means to search for him that he had yet to think of. To the magician, finding his teacher was crucial to getting stronger, to learn more subjects. Maybe, he'd learn a new magic type. 

Adrastos Thanatos thought back to a few days ago, back to when he was still in Reim, back to when he accepted a training summons issued by Azix Niraj. The summons was directed toward those who sided with the rebellion, but the blue mage went anyway. Adrastos wasn't turned away and was able to train alongside the strange orange magician and a Fanalis. Some of the knowledge he had obtained was a mere repeat of what he had already learned, but there were pieces of information which he did not know. Adrastos recalled Azix mentioning that he used light and strength magic. Out of those two, light magic seemed the most intriguing when Azix had commanded the rukh to disguise himself as an elderly man. Then there was Aengar. He too was an orange magician. The way he was able to form light constructs was absolutely stunning.

The blue mage watched as light fireflies began to emerge from their cozy little hiding spots and illuminate the area around him with their dulled yellow glow. Light truly is magnificent, he thought as he uttered a soft sigh. The man with long, silver hair closed his eyes and listened to the music of the wind and grass. light seemed to be everywhere. No matter how dark the world got, there would always be that speck of light that shined through. The same applied to light. There would always be darkness. The two could not live without each other. Adrastos wished that all light would be smothered, or would at least turn black. Black light? Is that possible? Maybe. After all, there was black rukh.

Adrastos sat up in a criss-cross form with his staff in his hands. Azix had said the Light Magic involved with light orange tinted rukh. The rukh that involved water was light blue. These rukh were unlike the ones you saw when regarding one's fate. How could someone who never experienced something possibly hope to learn something new? Instinct? I could ask the rukh... Meditate... Sighing, Adrastos placed his staff in front of him and began to meditate.

The blue magician sat silently with his eyes closed as his chest moved with every breath he took. He waited and listened for the rukh, hoping that the rukh would speak to him. However, right when Adrastos was on the verge on new knowledge, an outside force with ill intention could be heard crackling as it hurtled toward him. The blue magician, desperate to survive, rolled out of the way, grabbing his staff, and barely dodging the fatal lightning strike that would have electrocuted his heart. His silver eyes gazed toward the shadowy figure, toward the man who had attacked, and all he could do was glare at the familiar sunken face that drowned in a sea of wrinkles and wisdom.

About a year or two had passed since the teacher had last seen his apprentice. Not much had really happened in Magnostadt since the two had parted. The old man had left the city to live in the Plains, secluded from everyone else. He meditated and trained himself for the time when his pupil would return to gain further knowledge in the ways of magic. However, he also kept a close eye on the events between Reim and Kou. He knew of Kou's loss, but didn't get too upset. After all, he knew it was only a matter of time before the Emperor would fall. There was nothing he could have done to stop the outcome.

Now, after his disciple had been searching for him for days, the ancient figure, clad in dark purple and blue robes, looked blankly at the novice magician with his sunken eyes. He had known that his student was searching for him, but he evaded him on purpose, feeling that the young novice was not yet ready to be taught by him again. The man watched as his pupil rested in the tall grass and sit up. Why was he just doing nothing?

The elder was getting disinterested with watching the silver-haired one do nothing but lounge about, so he thought a little entertainment was due. He casted a lightning spell at the young gentleman, but much to his disappointment, he dodged the attack and glared at the old man. As he gazed upon his student, and he upon his teacher, he could see the strength and determination boiling in the apprentice's eyes as he glared. "You missed me," said the young man with silver hair. "After a couple of years without your student, have you really allowed yourself to slip so much old man?"

The figure clad in purple grunted. "It seems as though you have lost your manners. Adrastos, have your travels made you so forgetful that you would foolishly fail to address me as your master?" The old man narrowed his eyes and struck his staff against a rock. "It is Master Chou Zhi to you, Adrastos," he responded in raspy voice. "Or have you forgotten who I am? Have you forgotten the punishments you use to receive for such unruly behavior?"

Chou Zhi watched as his underling swallowed hard. The boy knew he was wrong. He bowed his head. "Forgive me, master. I meant no disrespect." Chou Zhi's upper lip lifted in a snarl and he cast another lightning spell at his student. Adrastos didn't have time to dodge, and as soon as the bolt struck him, a blood-curdling scream pierced the night. Chou Zhi repeated the spell so that he could hear his student scream in pain until he begged for the lightning strikes to stop.

Soon, a decision was made, one that Chou Zhi had not predicted, and a torrent of water spells was cast at the elder. His borg went up and managed to deflect them all. Chou Zhi smirked and cackled to himself as he watched Adrastos Thanatos stand up slowly, with staff in both hands, all the while the apprentice's eyes were giving off a frostbitten chill. Chou Zhi watched as Adrastos charged and let loose a cry of anger. The boy had finally made a choice... But it was his performance which would prove whether or not he was ready to move to the next stage of his training.

Adrastos ran at his master in rage. The shock from the lightning had almost unraveled him. The memories that had been locked inside had been brought to mind in fuzzy images. He saw the death of his slum family, of his parents glassy stares, and the children that were taken and beaten on the ship. The edges of his vision had turned red, blood red. He hated these memories. He hated his past. The past was a weakness. It had no place in Adrastos' future. It had no place at all in the blue magician's mind if he was to change his fate. How dare that old man bring back the pain? The weakness? How dare he?!

Adrastos cast Aqua Cyclonas and Aqua Cyclonas II. Six cyclones of water appeared, spinning in tall vortex's, and roared  like an angry storm around his master. They moved closer, inch by inch, yet all the old man did was stand there with a crooked-toothed smile. Why does he smile? How dare he smile! As the vortex's obscured Adrastos' vision, he cast yet another spell, Glaciem Aqua Sagitta. However, there was a giant crash as the cyclones and arrows hit Master Chou Zhi's borg, all of them being easily deflected.

Master Chou Zhi responded with his own spells, casting a light spell at Adrastos. For a moment, Adrastos wanted  to study it closely before dodging out of the way, but this was no time to marvel. Adrastos' borg went up and defected the attack as well as two other weaker spells that were casted. Adrastos put up his borg and watched as it fizzled out. His borg would now be useless. The blue magician looked at his master to see that same slanted smirk from before. Did he just hear a chuckle? Was that his master's chuckle?

"Damn you!! Don't laugh at me! Don't smile at me like I'm some animal you can torment! I am not weak!" Adrastos cried out, his eyes wide with wild fury. His hands clenched his staff tightly until his knuckles turned white and the black wood stabbed his hands with its splinters. "How could one not? You are a bug struggling to break away from prey that has you by its wings. How can someone not find such a sight as amusing as that? You are weak and will always be weak. You have done nothing to get stronger."

Nothing? Adrastos' eye twitched with annoyance. Always weak? A bug? Amusing? The red that lined the edges of Adrastos' vision spread farther inward. Don't mock me! Adrastos casted Glacialis Lamnia to form a katana out of ice. The sword swung at his master, but the old man deflected it with a fire spell that melted away the ice. Another spell was cast by Master Chou Zhi immediately afterward which bound the blue magician in a cage of fire and lightning and ice shackles that harnessed him to the ground below. Adrastos struggled to break free, to use a spell, something, but his staff had fallen and was out of reach. His silver eyes watched as his master, his face blank, hover over. The red tint in his vision evaporated like a forgotten dream and fear sunk its hooks into his heart.

"Like I said, you are weak, and you will always be weak. You still haven't learned a second magic type, have you, Adrastos?" Adrastos stared. I lost...? Just like that...? I didn't even have a chance? The blue magician closed his eyes and bowed his head. Everyone said he would be weak. He was slum trash and would always be slum trash. Adrastos remembered the last time he had been put into a corner, and they all came from his coliseum matches.

The blue magician could remember every detail from his coliseum matches. His first match was with Silver Fox. He had underestimated her and almost got pounded to dust with that metal ball she used. In his match against Giana Antonius, he almost bled to death due to her razor sharp fans. The same also happened with an old man named Rufi, who only had a rusty sword and a wooden shield. Those didn't stop the old man from killing the novice mage. There was Zai, the Fanalis. All he used was his bare fists to almost kill Adrastos. Then, finally, there was Korinna, the final opponent he faced before leaving Reim. She was a nightmare with her segmented sword. Not only was he paralyzed, but literally brought to the edge of death. How ironic it must have been for him, Adrastos Thanatos, the New Death, to be brought so close to the brink. Why did he always lose? Or did he? In the back of the blue magician's mind, he could remember that he had won all of those matches. Yes, he was pushed until there seemed to be no hope, but he always made it out, always proved his opponents wrong. Master Chou Zhi was just another one of those people that were wrong.

"No, I haven't," Adrastos admitted as he inched his hand for his staff. "But, that won't stop me from getting stronger. That won't stop me from becoming a king. I will not allow you or anyone else to get in my way, whether it be words or actions." The blue magician slowly looked up. Just a little closer. "I will be stronger. I will become a king. I will do whatever it takes to make those who mock me suffer. I will kill everyone who dares to look down on me! And that includes you!" Adrastos snatched his staff. Once again, he saw the red edges in his vision, but this time, there was also darkness. Darkness... Smother the Light with Darkness. Consume the land in a black light... Burn them... He imagined light similar to what he had seen when the Imuchakk cast his spells, or when Azix Niraj had cast his during the training, but he turned the light black. Nemesis Sol... Then, in the blink of an eye, his bonds vanished and all he heard was a strangled cry.

The strangled cry ceased slowly by turning into an amused chuckle. The scent of burning flesh and silk wafted toward Adrastos, who was still bewildered as to what had just occurred. Master Chou Zhi, with his singed clothing and burned flesh, stood before Adrastos where the black light had appeared with a hint of a ghostly smirk. All the young magician could do was stare into the slightly milky eyes of his master, wonder what the old man was thinking and wait for a reaction.

"You just cast a Light spell," Chou Zhi huffed, his words hushed like the wind. If Adrastos failed to pay attention, he would miss every single syllable.. "How-" He shook his head. "No, how doesn't matter now. I will teach you a few spells that could aid you in the future. You have earned that much at least, but after that, you will leave until I deem that we should meet again."

The old man nodded. He saw a lot of promise in the novice, especially after what he had just come into contact with. Light Magic, but to say this was just normal light would be incorrect. Never before had Chou Zhi witnessed black light in a spell. Chou Zhi turned and hobbled away. "Meet me back here tomorrow night. Your training will continue then."
