Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

It hurt, it tears, and it erupts.

It spread out like wildfire more than ever after the Hordes were banished. It was crippling at first with the sudden spike of a jolt that lanced through her body. Both knees hit the ground as she struggled to keep herself upright on her Demon Weapon with both hands on the stock. No words could leave her lips at the moment, but a pained growl and gasping breathes escaped her. Her mind couldn't think properly with the excruciating sensation flooding her very senses. She was starting to see red beginning to crawl into her vision and that never was a good sign. Maria wanted to scream and writhe, get herself to finally and fully express her pain and trepidation. It was taking much longer to get up, but maybe... she couldn't.

I am a blade...
A weapon that knows no fear...

The mantra started to creep up in her. Those words had been literally pounded into her in these last five years. It's those emotionless words that brought her in line and always reminded her place. She had none to mention now that father's bakery had been demolished by those demons. There was fear, sorrow... and rage when she survived that time.
 
She started to stand up with careful slowness while ignoring her teammates concerns. Maria had to focus what she had left or not get up at all. It's not so much that the "prayer" gave her strength. It was a frank reminder to remember. The Forgotten had to remember why she got to this point. Yes, she remembered those screams and the macabre scene before her. And how could she ever forget that? It was seared into her very eyeballs.

Look to your own Discretion:
 

This was no place to show weakness not now and not ever. After what Claire had said about loosening up, Maria couldn't keep it to heart. She couldn't afford to or she would fall apart. Her eyes flashed like wrought steel, embracing an entirely colder demeanor. Perhaps this was why Mother Superior didn't bother to give a reminder of her side effects. Nothing had more impact than a personal experience.



"..."

She finally was up on her feet and waved away at anyone on her team that tried to help her. Maria didn't want it. Without saying a word, she directed them to their next destination and continued onward.

And another one bit the dust. She was almost losing her shakes and actually becoming somewhat more confident. Perhaps she wasn't as weak or useless as she originally perceived. She thought that she would have ran out of the place at a moment's notice but no, here she was fighting with an old friend, and learning more about her as they went. She had become far more sullen than before. More hardened to it all unlike Vivian, who did things out of the fun of it. They nearly traded extremes after all those five years. It almost made her feel bad for her. Before she could reminisce too much, she noticed that yet again Maria was keeling over.


"Hey hey!" She said running towards her. As she knelt she would pull an arm under Maria's and hoist her up to her feet regardless of any protests. "Cmon now, don't go out on me yet. You're not going to refuse help from your elder kid. Now let's get going," she said as the girl waved her off. Who did she think she was talking to like that to just wave off all that? Maybe she should just give her a friendly reminder who she was, but there was no time for just kicking around about past times. This time she now looked considerably weaker than before, and she wasn't going to just let her fend for herself. Why was she suddenly growing so motherly towards her? Did it have something to do with Derrick and her new values? That seemed the obvious answer, but even then she had been with the young man for over a year, and this girl she barely knew. Maybe she was just growing soft. For a Cadet that was perhaps unbecoming, but she never claimed to be a star student in any event. "You can be as stoic as you want, but I won't let you go mosey off and get clobbered by fodder." She continued to move with her along the pathway which was ever so slowly turning into a larger area. It was almost a dead end in fact. Did it turn out they would find nothing and need to turn back, or would they find anything worthwhile inside? With a heavy heart and heavier body lugged around, Vivian Oates continued through the dungeon.

Serenity watched Maria and Vivian with a questioning gaze. This was one of their new cadets? Was there something wrong? Perhaps the weapon was draining much of her strength? With some time in the lab perhaps she could help her with that debilitating state. The Princess followed the two, worried not only for Julius but perhaps for the state of their team aswell. When they entered the room, they were in for a sight...



"Wh-What are you doing here, Princess?" "Come to play? Come to laugh?""It's not safe for you here. Somethings wrong here... That boy.. he's infected with something and it's spreading to everyone." The Government official spoke in dual tones. One serious and worried while the other playful and giggling. He raised a hand to his glowing golden hue and fought the temptation to laugh at the three who had stepped into this room. What this was, he wasn't completely lost as of yet. The Princess attempted to move to his side but he raised his hand to keep her back.

"Viktor, what could have happened to cause this? What boy are you talking about? Where's Julius?" The young woman asked as she looked towards her friend with a concerned gaze. Not only was she concerned for him, but what of Julius? She closed her eyes in worry while Viktor backed himself against the wall and continued to give low laughs under his breath. It was almost as if someone else was there in his head, trying to force him into depravity. There was no known infection like this documented in Endymion, but this was definitely something to be noted. His purple hue looked towards the cadets, focusing on Vivian for a second. Perhaps it was just his eyes failing him, but she did look like a relative of his own, yet they had never met. He would have taken the conversation further, but he continued to laugh.

He laughed....

..and laughed...

...and laughed.

The young man appeared to be losing himself the more he laughed, but suddenly his body would be surrounded by a burst of electricity and he'd hit the ground unconscious. The Princess had used her glove to knock him out and to put him to rest. Pulling his body against the wall, she would examine his face. "I've never seen this before. What is going on in this city? This is going to have to be reported to Mother once we leave here." Serenity spoke cautiously as she placed her hand on Viktor's head and sighed. She'd turn to the two cadets with a frown.



"Things may be alot more dangerous here. What do you two want to do? I will have no issues if you wish to fall back. I can go it alone from here, I won't abandon Julius but I won't endanger your lives either."

QAS Time

*Continue onward into the Dungeon*

*Return to the entrance to call for help*

*Return to the entrance to leave*

There were a lot of things that Maria was prepared for. Tonight, she was never prepared for the things life would throw at her. Right now, this was one of the things. She kept Andraste at the ready in case this Viktor was going to be a threat. Yet, those words he invoked were quite worrying. There was something spreading in this space. Was this the work of the demons and Psyche Terrorist? What kind of plans did they have? And what exactly was the infection agent here? There were a lot of questions circulating in her head.



"My safety is irrelevant, your Majesty. I am a tool to serve the city and the government. We continue onward and secure your brother."

It wasn't like Maria could ever fall back in the first place. She was a tool to be used. A tool has no right to say no. They were meant to be used or discarded, nothing more or less about it. There was also the fact that Serenity can't go through this alone. She was the Princess, after all. Maria was sympathetic to her, having already lost family of her own. Then there was Vivian. She had been such great help so far, but unlike the Forgotten, she wasn't a tool.

"If you wish to leave, I won't blame you," Maria spoke to her, "You've been of great help. I won't think less of you in anyway, Miss Oates."

Maybe Vivian had family of her own as well. Perhaps they were waiting for her back at home, hoping that she was safe despite the dangerous nature of being a Cadet. Maria had expected many of the Cadets that joined to be prepared to give their lives knowing how dangerous it was. Yet, even with that, she wasn't completely heartless nor did she completely lose what it meant to be human.

Of the group, it was only Maria that had lost so much.. It didn't matter if she died. Her passing wouldn't be significant and would only be listed as just another statistic for the Church. All they needed was data and information from her body. She was a tool, after all. Whatever the responses were, Maria began to move. If there was an infection going on, they really needed to start picking up the pace. The consequences are... going to be messy.

While moving, she asked Serenity, "Who was that man earlier?"

Vivian looked oddly at the sight. So was this phenomenon turning the man into some raving mad lunatic? She hadn't come across a terrorist on her own, but was this how they acted? She certainly couldn't make heads or tails of it. Why were the three not being affected? Was it because of their power or something else? Maria had opted to continue, but when she offered the chance for Vivian to leave, she thought. She was rather unsettled by the issue, but would it have been right of her to leave? Had she come here on her own accord, maybe. But not only was she called here, they were here to help a friend, and though she knew her little, she simply could not run away.


"Stop that. Like hell I'm going. Now let's keep moving." It was short and to the point. She would hear no argument on the subject anymore. Soon Maria would end up relenting long enough to use a skill to zip the group further in. It was a skill she remembered having, but never used. It definitely made travel easier huh?

Serenity followed the pair who had decided to stay with them during these times. She was thankful, but also worried they would become more victims to whatever this was. What could cause Viktor to become such a mess? What infection was this that he spoke of? If she had more time she would have examined him, but it was best he slept for now until this was all over. Then she could properly speak with him on what happened. Who was that boy he spoke of aswell? The Princess was lost in thought and she would have remained lost in thought if it weren't for Maria asking her a question. Serenity looked towards the young woman and thought to herself at first. She wasn't much of a liar, but she did not want to reveal his position so soon to new cadets. Especially with all the madness currently going on. "His name is Viktor. He's a family friend and has been my friend for some time. He usually helps me with my investigations and is a trustworthy friend. I hate to see him like that or take him out of commission like that, but we have no time to spare."

Maria nodded at Vivian, she was grateful that her fellow Cadet was going to continue on this hellish path with her. Despite allowing Vivian to vacate this place, she honestly wasn't sure if her body was going to be able to keep up like this. Everything inside her felt excruciatingly painful. Her stoic expression tried so hard to hide it, but her facade had broke. It was, in a way, far mortifying to experience her limitations so soon. Five years of experimentation and this was all she could do. Time was starting to run low for her.

"I... see. My condolences," Maria finally spoke while her lips quivered and beads of sweat crawling down the side of her face, "Why... why is someone like him here? Do you know why?"

There was a lot going on. With Alice out and with the facility commandeered by this strange influence, something definitely was in motion right now. But what was it? It was definitely something with Psyche-Terrorists and demons. Yet what was their goal here? And what exactly was that infection? Was it anything like that green gas from before at the Sunlake Palms? And speaking of that, Viktor had mentioned about a boy, hasn't he? There was something key about that...

"Really? You decide to just charge head first into our play area without any common sense to boot? This class of Cadets are just as stupid as he said."

While she had no doubt the Persona belonged to Alice, there was... something that struck out as odd to her, 'he'. It sounded like it was the accomplice that they noted from the earlier investigation in the afternoon. It sounded like this male knew who they were. But why? It should be difficult for the Psyche-Terrorists to obtain any information within the Cadet ranks. Did this mean they had a traitor in their midst? It sounded improbable, but it sounded like the only explanation. But who? Alex was out with Julius, wasn't he?

The Hot Spring was the abode of the District Leader. She had little doubt that people wouldn't be able to get in so easily with royalty around doing God knows what. And with the scale of this odd operation and the lack of other personnel around to assist them, it seemed the Psyche-Terrorists were doing shockingly well. Especially when the District Leader was supposed to be more powerful than Alice and yet the facility was overrun. So this was a planned out operation. And with something like an infection running rampant and with the intention for it to be so, it needed the ease of movement. Who else than a fellow Cadet or someone who worked for the government? But it made no sense for Claire since she was there dealing with Alice. So who--

It hit her for a moment. She remembered something about Sera asking about her. But she needed to know. And unlike her fellow Cadets, Maria wasn't there to hear why he tried to join the Cadets.



"Ma'am... I need your answer on this. It's important. There was a... Sera who was present in the afternoon investigation site. I remember him asking... about what Claire did last night. He seems to be... concerned for her. What is his relationship to her?"

Maybe, just maybe she was getting closer to the truth. But it would have to wait as more enemies would come to them.

She would let the two converse, she wasn't the detective type herself though it did interest her. But the thoughts did come across her mind knowing that the others in the ranks could be among this. Her memory went back to the first time she was with true Cadets when she awakened. She remembered Alex Tenth among her help and was confused. Was he going to be here as well, and would he end up like the Viktor man they saw earlier? Perhaps she would end up needing to get herself into this a little more. She was completely lost without context. It also made her worry inside; what if Julius was going to be like this when they found him? Would they have to knock him into his senses or would he be far gone? In the end, what did interest her was that all these Cadets were here in need of rescue. For them to get caught so easily, she presumed whoever was responsible knew they would be here and caught them off guard. Could it be the terrorists? Before she could think much more about it, Maria asked about two people she did not know. She would love to be on the same pace as the other two, but it's not like she could interrupt them. She would ask for the situation after the upcoming fight. Instead, she would turn to Serenity.

"Don't worry. We'll kick whoever's in on this out of here."
She said, summoning her Persona once more. Funny how she could tell her Persona didn't exactly like Vivian, yet she was enjoying all the fighting. Djinn was meant to be a support-like Persona, with powers that could help, but not fight. She could only fight when Vivian let go of her completely. Luckily it hasn't gotten to the point where it began acting on its own completely, but the risk was always there. And for now it would remain. She slipped a hand into her pocket and pulled out a tiny pill, placing it in her mouth and swallowing it, almost coughing due to lightly choking on it. She had no nearby water to spare, but she had to down one now, or the next person that would grab hold of her would be Vivian's own Persona. It was a complete mess being with her, cause she could tell it wasn't normal unlike others who used them. Was she just that unlucky?

Serenity did not answer the question on why Viktor was there, chalking it up more to it being a rhetorical question than an actual question. However, there was something she couldn't ignore in the form of Maria asking about Claire. However, the conversation seemed more focused on Sera than Claire which made her raise a brow. "They're relatives. Cousins, if I recall. He joined our ranks soon after Claire and has worked for us since." She decided to opt out how he failed the ritual and thus could not become a cadet like her. However, Serenity thought nothing of Sera so these questions went completely over her head.

"I see," Maria nodded slowly at this information. If they were relatives, then it would make it easier for someone like Sera to sneak in. Not only as a Cadet, despite her not knowing he isn't in reality, but also as a relative to someone who appeared to be working closely with Julius. But she kept all the thinking on the back burner, there were enemies to be eliminated.
