You can survive without reading it.))
The city of Morento!
A proud city with a rich history. The streets are filled with thousands of citizens heading to their work place with a smile as often as possible.
But its never been possible, at least not for a while.
Like most cities, Morento too has its dark side.
But Morento's is worse.
Upon the roof of one of the many buildings stands a man, a strong man, with the will to defend his city, to fight for it and against the wrong doings of those that would harm it and its people.
Beside him are his allies: Savage, the beast man with the fangs and fire of a dragon and the strength of several tigers, Chill, the lady of ice, the woman who can turn the hottest deserts to lands of snow and lastly, Old Boy, the old man who can take the remaining years from his victims and become young once more.
But he himself, the leader of this noble group, The Tower stands out the most, but together, they are The Holy Shield.
A determination of steel crosses his face as he looks down upon the people the city, hoping they would be able to go upon their day without worry. They were blessed to be able to not know about the horrors of Blood Seed.
The group dedicated to causing terror and misery for the cities inhabitants.
The villains treated the people as though they were dominoes, never giving them a chance to live and die in peace.
The Tower does his best to give the people that time they want to be happy with their family and friends.
A sudden explosion echoes from a few buildings away!
The Tower turns his head to face the direction, his hands form a fist, already he knows the identity of the group behind the explosion.
Blood Seed once again.
Within moments, the four heroes are at the scene.
Civilians, dead and alive litter the floor, those that can try to crawl away, the unlucky few are shot down before they escape.
Smoke from the explosion covers the scene, blocking the view of the heroes.
"Show yourself, villain!" The Tower demands.
"Of course, I wouldn't want to put a stop to the part before its already begun." A cruel voice spoke from behind the smoke.
Slowly, a tall, large figure emerged from the grey curtain, a deep blue skinned man with four arms, enough fists to hit each hero.
Dressed in the signature red and black uniform, the already confirmed fears The Tower had were true. It was Blood Seed.
"Just call me, Ogre. I'll be sure to leave you feeling sick in the morning, if I let you live that is!" Ogre laughed.
With a leap, Savage attack immediatly with two claw attacks, cutting into Ogres thick skin and drawing blood, Ogre struck back hitting Savage in the chest, knocking him away.
A few seconds later, Ogre felt a deathly chill slowly crawl up one of his arms, it was slowly freezing solid.
"Argh! You wretch!" He yelled as he charged towards Chill and punched her straight in the face, sending her hurtling into a wall.
She slowly picked herself up.
Ogre slowly began a second charge but was stopped when suddenly his frozen arm was crushed.
"Pain like that makes you feel old, no?" Old Boy joked.
"Gyah... " Ogre coughed before his was suddenly choked by Old Boy.
Slowly a few wrinkles appeared on Ogres face while the greying hair suddenly darkned into jet black hair.
"What... Have you done...!?" Ogre said as he swung his arms at Old Boy's face, knocking him away.
Ogre began retreating from the fight, holding his broken arm.
"Tower! Don't let him escape!" Chill yelled.
"I didnt plan on it!" Tower ran towards the wounded villain, leapt into the air and hammer punched Ogre as he landed.
Ogre fell towards the floor with a thud.
"You'll pay for your crimes in prison. Those poor souls you murdered..." Tower grimaced.
The four heroes regrouped, as the firefighters and ambulances emerged to help the wounded.
"What does this mean... another attack or a simple corner shop. It makes no sense, these attacks cant be random."
The four heroes slowly walked away.
To rest up and make notes of todays events.
They'd head out several times again later throughout the day.
The rate at which they have to stop attacks was becoming to much.
They need help.
Nine Circles College - Cafeteria
Taking a break in the cafeteria, Luke Matthews enjoyed a cold bottle of soda as he wrote down some notes from the history lesson he had taken earlier in the day.
Most of it sounded like garbled mythology, but it was interesting, kind of.
He put the pen down and leaned back on his chair stretching his arms and yawning.
He shook his hands to try to ease the pain from all the note taking, he'd taken a lot, it seemed like it was all he was doing these days.
The cafeteria was rather empty today, just a few scattered students and professors hanging around having a bite to eat.
It caused that kind of silence that felt illegal to break, like the slightest cough or hiccup would cause someone to give you a horrid death stare or a "tsk tsk, how rude".
It was not a comfortable place to be.((Ok, sorry for the delay and wall of text. I need to cut down on those longer starting posts, Dark Sands was a bit longer I think.
So, just introduce your character. don't worry about introducing their power straight away, take a few posts to do it.
Also, feel free to interact with others characters, but maybe not delve into powers and abilities with other characters until they head to the Holy Shield HQ.
Infact, for some character exploration, lets leave discovering powers until the next day(RP Time).
And feel free to create a character to recruit your own rather than use one of the current Holy Shield members.
Anyway, have fun and get justicing! ))

Nine Circles College - Cafeteria
Oswald would've been sitting in a random desk in the cafeteria, a snack assembled by his parents open in front of him as he sat alone in the table, carefully picking through the different foods. What would pick someone's intention, were they to look, was the fact that all of the food that Oswald was taking with him seemed to be food that was high in calcium. Milk, cheese, yogurt, cereal and bread. All of them carefully wrapped in paper. Oswald would sigh, taking out the yogurt and spilling it over the cereal before he started to eat it. Then lightly poking it with the spoon a bit before he started to eat it.
Some other student approached Oswald, alongside with a few "friends." They all gathered up around the kid. "Yoo~~ Oswald, what's up, kiddo?" Oswald stared murderously at the boy, taking the spoon of his bowl and carefully setting on the plate, a single piece of cereal laying on the spoon. "I told you to stop calling me, kiddo. I'm the same age as you, smarter even, probably. Leave, only warning." The bigger boy simply chuckled, and his colleagues followed. "Yeah, what are you gonna do if I don'-"
Oswald slammed his hand against the spoon, the force propelled the single piece of cereal right towards the boy's eye, he jumped back, covering his face and whining in pain. Oswald got up and walked off to sit elsewhere, muttering. "Stop your whining, if anything, that'll make your eye irritated for a while. Besides, I warned you."

Nine Circles College - Lecture Theatre
Terence leaned back in his chair as he listened to the Prof describe another case study. Normally, Terence enjoyed these lectures. Psychology was a fascinating subject. But, today he didn’t want to be here. His head was rather foggy, and his muscles ached all over. Possibly some sort of cold. He made a mental note to close the window in his room before going to sleep from now on.
A few minutes passed, which felt like hours for Terence, before he started loosing feeling in his left arm. He looked over to see it hanging limp at his side, his hand appearing to be melting. Shocked, he shot his hand up to eye level for examination, by then it appeared to be normal again.
“So now, I’m hallucinating. This is going to be a very long day…”

Nine Circles College - Cafeteria
Luke pretended not to hear the event that had taken place nearby.
He grabbed his cold drink and snuck a quick glance over to one of the offending parties.
he quickly looked back at his notebook.
"Ah, he does look like one of them trouble makers, they should have just buggered off when they had the chance."
Luke thought to himself as he took a sip of his drink only to discover it had quickly become room temperature.
He began scribbling more notes into his notebook, waiting for his next class to start.

Nine Circles College - Lecture Theatre
About twenty or so minutes had passed since the lecture started, and Terence was feeling like absolute crap. Nausea was added to the list of symptoms he was feeling right now. Terence was sure that the colour in his face had taken a turn for the green. Unable to stand it any longer, he stood up from his seat, wading through the row, not even bothering to apologize for the interuption. He needed to get to the restroom badly.
After hurling for a good portion of five minutes, Terence was now washing up at the sink. He didn't feel much better, but at least that was out of system. Having washed the vomit off his hands, he looked up at the mirror to see just what sort of state he was in. The sight in the reflection would normally shock him to the core, but in his state he barely registered it. Staring back at him was a melted face, about to drip off of his head entirely. Turning off the tap, Terence took one step towards the exit, before falling over unconcious.
And then he was a puddle.

Across the Street from Nine Circles
Two figures sat on a bench across the street from Nine Circles College.
Both enjoying a coffee, The younger woman felt her mobile phone vibrate.
She thrust her hand into her pocket and retrieved her phone.
The Older man beside her look at her.
"Oh? Is that the Aura Radar Application?" He asked
"Yep, one aura has been picked up, judging by the size, it seems like its an awakening, there seems to be smaller aura's on the radar, possibly more awakening's very soon." Her cold blue eyes gazed at the small screen.
The Older man took his own mobile phone from his coat and checked the Aura Radar for himself.
"Thats a pretty huge Aura, I bet this one is terrified. Hmm, you know, we'd better get in there and find him or her."
"They always get new recruits, voluntarily or not! We'd better hurry."
The two stood and walked towards the college entrance.

Nice Circles College corridor
Dominic strolled idly down the rather non-pleasant corridor of his college, experiencing that casual fur of neither comfort nor sorrow - a blur of satisfaction and apathy. After walking for what seemed like over a dozen minutes, Turner eventually came to the conclusion he was walking meaninglessly down some never ending hall that would end somewhere outside the time and distance any man could possibly achieve. Basically, that is to say, he was rather bored.
Eventually he came to a perfectly sane conclusion: That every time he made it so far down the corridor, he was somehow miraculously returned to that benign starting point from whence he came. This would be fine, in fact an interesting discovery, but he was hungry and the cafeteria was at the end of this single short long path.
So why couldn't he reach his longed-for destination? It was a thought curiously perched in his mind as he finally did cross the threshold into the cafeteria, stomach rubbling, and made his way round the usual airs of food stuffs until he came to something he liked. Curry and Rice dish in hand, he sat by himself in the corner, with nothing but a book for company.

Nine Circles College - Cafeteria
Oswald finished up his meal elsewhere, sighing and getting up, casually brushing his mouth with the napkin as he started heading out of the cafeteria, he let out a short yawn, feeling a bit of a desire to be an ass, he looked over at another boy, Dominic, who had a book in his hands, with a glance, Oswald identified the book, he had read it before while he was with his parents at the library, after a moment of contemplation, he sorted out the story through the data in his brain and casually said. "The main character's mentor dies trying to save the main character, the main character ends up together with the blonde girl but sacrifices himself to save her later." He spoiled out, giggling a bit as he walked off the cafeteria.
He headed for the bathroom, yawning a bit as he walked in, just as he did walk into the bathroom, however, his foot met with a puddle, causing him to slide backwards and fall against the bathroom floor. "The hell?! What are the janitors of this school doing?!" He whined as he rubbed his back.

02:34 PM Tuesday
Nine Circles College - Corridors
Luke stretched his arms out and he wandered down the corridor to his next class.
He was feeling lazy now after all that writing he had done.
He must have over done it, his hands were suddenly sore.
He turned to the window and looked out, resting his hands on the windowsill.
He looked out onto the cityscape of Morento.
Despite not being born here, this city felt like it was where his root were.
Almost an unnatural feeling considering he was less than pleased with its current state.
It's more like a battlefield than anything.
Meanwhile... in the cafeteria
"You know, I heard they want to cancel the archaelogy students excavation in the Celmphar ruins on Nobarg.
Its a shame, but its something that would have been kind of cool, eh?"
A spirited young Remalare named Stuart asked his Diagan friend, Sabrina. A duo was sat at a table in the cafeteria.
Both with a cold drink in their hands, although Stuart was skimming through the college newspaper.
"Thats something that would just be such a hassle to deal with, the cost of the flights for instance would be horrible.
Especially if we have to rely on a Welstarm flight. They charge the worst prices. Not to mention I hate flying anyway.
I for one, am definitely glad they got canceled." She replied.
"Ah, yeah, well, you know, I was just saying, it could be kind of cool to go. Just dreaming I guess." Stuart replied.
"Well, I hate to be a downer, but some of us just don't have the money for an expensive flight."
"yeah, I know." Stuart replied almost emotionless as he knew a rant was foreshadowed by his friends last comment.
"Prices these days are just skyrocketing, I rarely have a coin to myself thesedays! My job just doesnt cut it as it used to.
If things get worse, I might have to just work fulltime." She depressingingly continued before her attention was taken by the shadow in the corner of the room.
"Whats wrong?" Stuart asked
"Just thought I saw something in the corner of my eye. Anyway..."
She continued her rant, Stuart listened looking from newspaper to friend every few moments.
A deep breathing came from the corner of the room that Sabrina had spoken of.
The darkness was unnatural, almost man made.
The Diagan girl was almost able to see me. Perhaps my talent is fading, but
I would know if it was. Could the aura have been her?
The shadow thought to itself.
A second later, a power failure caused the lights to flicker off.
Gasps could be heard, not to mention ghost like noises made by the immature of the students.
The staff members repeated the phrase "Its just a power failure" several times.
The shadow took a human form or rather, true form would be more fitting.
The figure of a tall man wearing a long black coat with a black fedora appeared.
Dark red military trousers were visible under his coat, heavy boots too.
The Shadow mans face was hidden by a shadow caused by the hat and coats collar.
He drew his mobile phone from his pocket and activated the radar.
It gave him a vague map of the building based on old blueprints.
The aura is fading, perhaps the strongest source moved location, several people did just leave a few minutes ago.
A more recent aura appeared suddenly, smaller, but distinct.
The lights flickered back on as the Shadow man left the room.
it was the first thing Sabrina saw.
"Stuart, a man who wasn't here before, just left the room." She said worriedly.
"What?" he replied.
"I don't know, a man appeared after the light went on, he just left the room."
Her animal like curiosity was getting to her.
Stuart turned to look at the door, he was unconvinced.
"What was you saying about the uh...ah, forget it." he went back to his newspaper.
Sabrina just stared at the door.
The Shadow man continued down the hall, pushing past students violently.
Even sending one to the floor.
Yells were sent his way, but he didn't look back.
He didn't need to look back at a normal person.
back in the distance, Sabrina had followed.
She knew something was going on.
It didn't take a genius to figure it out.
Without thinking of potential consequences, she activated the fire alarm.
A split second later a siren was wailing and the sprinklers on the ceiling were activated.
Sabrina's brown fur was dampened as she fixated her cat like eyes on the Shadow man.
She could feel her own fate slowly changing as she looked at him.
Her instincts were telling her to run, but she couldn't.
It wasn't possible in the chaos created by this man and the fire alarm.
Bodies were fleeing left and right.
For the first time in years, she could tell her life was on the line.
(Oh no, a potential misfortune is on the horizon!
I had to re-write this post, my internet cut out just before I posted it the first time and I lost the original!
Anyway, sorry for the length of it. I am the worst!)
Jul 11 2011, 05:43 AM
Dominic looked at the book squarely as a student has so rudely ruined it, "Oh yeah," he murmured to himself, "That's how this one ends..." he threw it after Oswald - partly because he ruined the book, partly because he remembered it was a rather dull book. Next thing he knew the lights had disappeared. Among the wailing and whooping that followed only one thing crossed Turner's mind,
Needs more salt
Suddenly the lights were back on, and everything was quiet... well, it would be quiet, Dominic was lying on his kitchen floor, breathing and coughing like he'd just ran a marathon, and starving to boot. Seizing the moment, he grabbed his meal, added some salt, and continued to sit down and eat it. To be fair, this wasn't the strangest thing to ever happen to him.
Jul 11 2011, 12:43 PM
A puddle flowed down the hallway of the lecture building, only to be interupted as a foot planted itself right in the middle of it.
"Damnit... who spilt there drink and didn't bother to clean it?" whined a student before carrying on. "I just got these shoes!"
Terence didn't mind. In fact, he barely felt a thing, and continued slithering his way down the hall. Wait, puddles don't slither. What sort of motion does a puddle undergo when it moves from place to place?
"Either my drink was spike with something, or this is one heck of a dream," Terence thought. He would attempt to pinch himself back to reality if he could, save for the fact that he hand no hands to pinch himself with anymore. "Guess I just wait this one out."
Jul 12 2011, 01:32 PM
(OOC: I had posted to you Ryuga, i'll just act like Oswald was that guy you mentioned in your post then.)
Shortly after slipping, the fire alarm ringed off and next thing he knew, there was water pouring around everywhere. Oswald shook his head a bit. "Ah, great, this day just keeps getting better." Just then as he was ready to walk out of the school, he noticed the Diagan girl standing paralyzed in front of a shadowy man. "Oh, wonderful. Well this sounds like a job for Smaragdus."
As he said that, Oswald pulled the zipper of his jacket all the way up, hiding his head inside the hood and now only revealing that large smile as his face. He ran towards Sabrina, actually no, five of him ran towards Sabrina, four of them picked the girl up and tried to take her away from there, while one of them simply stood there in front of the Shadow man. "You know, I think you're a bit too old to be here in this place still, unless you're just really stupid." He'd say with a chuckle.
Jul 13 2011, 02:16 PM
Shortly after the Older Man and Younger Woman had talked their way into the building the lights made a minor habit of
flickering on and off.
"Oldboy, do you think that was their power awakening?" The younger woman asked before checking her mobile phones
aura radar. "Huh? One of the aura's have really gotten more prominent. Too prominent!"
Oldboy looked at her concerned, almost bit his lip with worry.
"Chill, do you think it could be one of them Blood Seed members? They've got members everywhere."
Chill nodded and began running up a flight of stairs.
Oldboy followed shortly behind.
Luke snapped out of the hypnotic view of the city when he heard the fire alarm start ringing and the spray of water coming from the ceiling sprinklers.
He then heard the thumping of foot steps as students larger than he charged past screaming, he was forced to pin himself against the wall.
"A fire!?" He asked he asked himself aloud.
He noticed several of the students he had seen in the cafeteria.
He had left his bag back there.
After the herd of students seemed to lessen he began to run back to the cafeteria.
His hands began stinging painfully, as though someone was stabbing them with needles.
The Shadowman watched as the hooded hooligan ran away carrying Sabrina in his arms.
"He was that aura? An interesting talent indeed."
He drew a handgun from his inside coat pocket, removed the ammo magazine and replaced it with tranquilizer rounds.
"I'll take that one alive."
His vicious grin could be seen in the darkest of nights.
He quickly ran after the multiple man and the Diagan girl.
"Argh, what the hell are you!?" She shouted at Oswald.
"Who was that guy? One of your friends I bet!" She struggled to be let go.
She was terrified, she had never felt so close to death before.
What about Stuart, had he made it outside?
How many of these people were around?
Jul 13 2011, 02:53 PM
After polishing off his meal, Turner brought his mind around to the mystery of his scene change. It was true, stranger things had happened to him: While he was much younger a prank had been played on him, most likely due to his odd genes, in which he woke up in his bed in the middle of school. To this day he has no idea how they did it, but apparently Dom was a rather heavy sleeper with a poor ability to maintain security while his parents left town.
However, this mystery was more prominent. One moment he was eating, and then the lights went out, he could hear whoops and ghost imitations for a while before they suddenly cut out, and he was home - specifically he was in the kitchen, right next to the salt, which he left there that morning and had a clear view of in his mind's eye...
He desperately tried to recreate the conditions in his head, rebuilding the entire cafeteria in his mind. Brick my brick. The tacky floor, made of some kind of fake wood carpet stuff he had never gotten used to, now inches from his face: He was back. He pulled himself over to his side, once again exhausted, but dealing with it better than last time. Panting and rolling like some kind of turtle left out in the sun, or an excited dog, he couldn't help but feel he was missing something important. It could be the sirens of the fire alarm, the sprinklers spitting at his face, or the absolute emptiness of the cafeteria - but he was pretty sure it was the eery feeling he had that he wasn't the only one having a weird day.

Nine Circles College - Corridors
One of the Smaragduses's took a knee to the face as Sabrina tried to struggle away, he shook his head then yelled out at her. "Hey! Quit that! I just saved your life!" He'd shoot back angrily, frowning to the girl, even though she couldn't see it. "My name's Smaragdus, I don't know that guy. All I knew was that he looked like trouble and I thought you could use the help, so much for showing gratitude, huh?"
Just as he said, however, another one of him looked back and noticed the Shadowman following them. "Uh-Oh. G-Guys! He's coming after us!" They all looked back for a while and grunted in unison. "Damnit." After a moment, one more clone popped out from the group, this one running straight towards the Shadowman, he was, however, simply a mere distraction. He'd do his best to try and delay the Shadowman by putting himself in the way, where he to receive any damage, however, he'd just disappear in a puff of smoke.
Jul 16 2011, 11:39 AM
The Shadow Man chased behind holding the gun ahead of him aiming his shots carefully.
He fired upon one of the Oswalds only to see it burst into smoke.
This ones powers are brilliant. He MUST be recruited, if not by me then by another hand.
He thought to himself, smiling at the possibilities should Smaragdus be recruited to the Blood Seed.
Luke ran on closer to the cafeteria, he could hear what sounded like gun shots in the distance.
The smell of smoke was missing despite the fire alarm sounding away.
The almost empty corridoors were passing as he sped on when he saw a familiar hooded figure
with a girl in his arms in the distance.
"I'm sorry I hit you in the face, but this is a lot to take in. I got the feeling he wasn't your average criminal but
then again, you don't seem to be an average hero either." Sabrina apologised.
"He seemed to appear from nowhere after the lights flicked off for a moment, before that, I thought I saw
something in the darkest corner of the room, it was weird."
Jul 17 2011, 01:29 PM
OOC: Sorry Niscp. I didn't notice your part of the post.
IC: The puddle in the middle of the hall slowly began to gather, and stretch upwards. The features of a head could be made out, as Terence began to reconstitute. He didn't get far, however, as a man with a hood, carrying a Diagan in his arms stepped on him, halting the process.
"Man... just when I thought this was going to be over," Terence whined as he began reconstituting yet again, only to be stepped on by a man in a black coat next.
"Oh come on!"
Jul 17 2011, 04:46 PM
Continued running until he stepped on a puddle, almost slipping again. "NOT THIS TIME." He yelled out, playfully. The Oswalds's all nodded towards Sabrina. "All right! First things first, we need to get out of here before he gets to us." Just as he said that, the small group reached a fork in the path, with two ways. Two of the Smaragduses wanted to go one way, while the other wanted to take the other, in the end, they all just bumped into each other and fell, dropping Sabrina. "Gah! What the heck are you guys doing! The exit is that way!" "No you stupid, the exit is clearly that way, you're obviously wrong." "Stop discussing with me, i'm the original!" "No! I'm the original, stop making stuff up!" And now they were arguing, they had pretty much forgotten all about what they were doing.
Jul 28 2011, 01:48 PM
Sabrina fell to the floor with a thud.
"Ow!" She said as she got to her feet.
"Will you stop arguing with yourself and concentrate? There's a man heading this way trying to shoo-"
She stopped mid-sentence, noticing she had been hit, a small needle in her arm had slowly injected a tranquilizing liquid into her blood stream.
"How... when did that?"
She began slurring her word and staggering about as if she were heavily drunk.
"What's wrong with your face, Smararadugasp, its all yella and smorley-smiley ha ha."
She could barely keep her eyes open.
"Hey whats going on!? Why are all of you dressed the same?"
Luke shouted as he ran to the small group.
"This place is on fire! You can't mess around up here!"
Luke began shaking his hands, they felt so sore and strange.
Chill and Oldboy began navigating the corridoors of the college.
They were getting close to the aura's on the radar.
With each footstep Chill took, the damp floor slowly froze becoming slippery.
"Just my luck, someone had to set the sprinklers off." Chill said, jokingly.
"I heard this college is almost two hundred years old. I'm sure they want to keep it standing." Oldboy replied.
Jul 28 2011, 04:01 PM
Dominic stumbled out of the cafeteria dazed and confused. Up ahead he could see shadows, maybe people, but it was hard to tell. Whatever he'd just done had worn him out. Realising quickly that there was no way of escaping without jumping or walking past these obvious maniacs, he chose the preferable option - the maniacs.
"Hey geniuses!" He shouted, entirely bemused by the situation, "Exits this way, you not hear the alarm?"
Jul 28 2011, 05:31 PM
Terence stumbled around the corridors on his legs. That's right, legs. He managed to get those things back now. It wasn't all fine and dandy however, as he was still in a semi-liquid form. Image a jello-man if you will. Walking felt as if he had a thousand joints in his legs, and he had to control all of them in order to not fall over (into another liquid mess most likely).
He eventually encountered the damp hallway where the alarm was set off. His feet absorbing the water from the ground.
"Great, I can drink with my feet now," he thought to himself before noticing the floor freezing a couple feet in front of him. He looked up to find two figures standing in front of him, maybe another student behind them, he couldn't tell.
Jul 29 2011, 03:50 AM
[OoC Just to clarify, it was Luke, the Oswalds, and Sabrina that Dominic walked towards. A previous post said they were somewhere near the cafeteria... I think]
Jul 29 2011, 12:42 PM
The Smaragduses all turned towards Dominic. "We know where the exit is!" They shouted at him in union before a single one of them shook his head disappointedly. "This is ridiculous." He said as he snapped his fingers, all of the other clones disappearing in puffs of smoke. He quickly tried to give Sabrina his shoulder so he could take her to the exit. He begans walking towards Dominic's direction alongside with Luke. "Our...Erm...My main concern isn't the fire, rather, it's that weird guy that was following us a while ago, I have no idea where he is but you're right on one thing, we can't stand here, come on." And as he said that, he'd try to head to the exit, leading Sabrina.
Jul 29 2011, 04:40 PM
Dominic was initially surprised by the clones, but managed to justify it somehow - after all, he's just been eating miles away for no explicable reason. He tagged along with the group, figuring there was security in numbers.
"So..." he murmured to Oswald, "Any idea why freaky stuff's happening? 'Cause a moment ago there was like, half a dozen of you, and earlier I went from the cafeteria to home in a heartbeat... Then back again."
Jul 29 2011, 05:33 PM
[ooc: Um... I should have thought of a proper layout, heh heh...*BIG INNOCENT SMILE*
Yeah, everyone is close to the cafeteria.]
Lukes hands were now almost glowing as he followed behind them.
"Y-you ... did what? You ran that fast? No one can do that! You guys are nuts!"
He wasn't going to believe a thing they had said, even though Oswald's clones had disappeared with a snap
of his fingers. It was a bit heavy to take in.
Sabrina leaned on Smaragus's shoulder, slowly walking besides him.
"So tired... " she mumbled.
"What the hell is that!?" Chill screamed, staring at a pair of legs.
"I... are those legs? Some kind of Blood Seed experiment gone wrong!?" Oldboy speculated.
Chill stepped closer to take a better look at it.
"It looks like its made of liquid... is it alive? Maybe its part of someone or something..."
She took a step back, worried in case it was a trap of some kind.
"Chill, I think this is the first aura we saw on the radar, the aura's shape is big." Oldboy showed her the radar on his mobile phone.
"Well, that's one of them, but there's still a few more. It even looks like one of the aura's suddenly shrunk. I wonder if one of these people have some understanding of their powers. Well, lets try and uh... clean this kid up first. Must be terrified of whats happening."
Oldboy put the mobile back into his coat pocket. He knelt down in front of the pair legs studied them for a moment and stood back up.
"I... have no idea what to do. This is the first time I've tried to help someone made of liquid AND just a pair of legs."
"Kid, if you can hear me, you need to relax yourself and center your thoughts, try to visualize your desired form as closely as possible and hold onto it."
Chill snorted with laughter at what
"That sounds like something from a comic or tv show, one of those cheese filled ones too."

Turner shook his head, "No not ran, more like teleported. One moment I was there, then I was somewhere else. I'd do it again but it really takes the breath out of me - and I'm really not a fan of pain."
he shrugged and kept walking, "Plus, if there's a really big problem, I could probably get you out of here - but that's in case of an emergency."

Some liquid around the Terences legs drew together, and eventually helped form a torso and head, thought he still was in his jello-man sort of form.
"The longer things go one, the more I start to think that this isn't just a dream or hallucination," he spoke, the words slightly distorted as if he were talking through water, but still understandable. "You two seem knowlegable about what's going on. You mind telling me why I've became a puddle in the middle of the floor for the past half-hour or so?"

Dominic had no sooner turned back around when he found himself again face to face with his kitchen floor. Murmuring something about irony, he rolled onto his side and passed out from exhaustion.
[OoC Going away for a week, this is the best I can do to get my character out of the way.]

Chill stepped forwards.
"Kid, you're a Natural, or rather, someone who isn't like others, you have a special gift, your water form. The reason we're here is to ask you to come back with us to our base, to help your gift grow and stop those that would do harm to others. I guess you could say we're vigilantes of sorts. We go by the name Holy Shield."
Oldboy got back to his feet, he walked a few steps away.
Not saying anything. He checked his aura radar, another aura suddenly vanished, a sigh could be heard.
"What the hell!? That guy just dissapeared! He was telling the truth!" Luke screamed moments after seeing Turner vanish.
"So... What the hell was that just then? You cloned yourself? And then made them go away?" He said to Oswald.
He looked down at his glowing hands, he knew this wasn't normal for anyone, but the idea that he could do something too
What could he do though? His hands just seemed to get hot.

Terence pondered what was said. He had heard rumors of Holy Sheild, but never would have guessed he would end up involved someday.
"You look with people with odd abilities? Though I don't see how useful I would be. Stop right there criminal scum. Prepare to feel the wrath of the incredible Puddle-man," he replied rather cynically.

Smaragdus shook his head, disappointed. "I see little point in trying to explain the complicated process of my power to you, so, instead, I will just simply leave it at that, yes, I can make clones of myself." The green hero turned back forward. "Regardless, we should get all of you out of here, I don't know who the freaky guy was but he sure as heck wasn't friendly. We should all get out of here as soon as possible, enough dawdling." He said as he then walked off, signalling both of them to follow.

Chill shook her head.
"Part of the reason we want you to come with us is so that we can train you so that you don't accidently turn into a puddle again. Besides, Old-Boy over there can't exactly throw fireballs or anything, he just saps peoples youth away."
Old-Boy peeked over and mumbled "Its more than just that..."
"People like us have different skills and such, it would be weird if we were all just human weapons."
"Chill, I'm going to go find the other aura signals. You'd better try and get this guy out of here, it's almost 3pm, I don't think its the fire brigade that are going to show up here. If the Police happen to be on their way I don't want to be stuck answer questions for them again, we're going to have to make an escape of some kind."
Chill nodded and Oldboy headed off to look for the other group.
Luke followed behind Smaragdus and the almost asleep Sabrina.
As he ran behind them, he could hear the faint sound of sirens.
"Thank you! That sounds like the fire brigade! We'll be saved."
