Meeting Aquarius [Solo]

Post by Alucard on Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:07 pm

Rue followed her teacher along silently as they walked through the marshy swamps of her homeland. She hadn't been here in some time, ever since she left in fact. Her master had yet to say why exactly they had come here, only that it was time for the final phase of her training. She had no clue what this could mean, she was only just beginning to realize just how much her teacher could actually show her, given what she had learned about him. Once he had saved her from being crushed by the Colossus, and they received their pay, she had finally gotten some knowledge of who he was. He revealed that he had hidden his true identity from her to not only protect himself, but her as well. He was none other than the fabled Demon, Alucard. She remembered stories she heard as a kid about how he would come and attack her in her sleep if she didn't do as her parent's asked. But, after spending the last many months with this man, who many around the world feared and regarded as a mythical boogeyman, she had to admit that he was far kinder than she had ever known anyone to be. He helped her for no real reason other than that it was the right thing to do, he even accepted her as his student knowing the risks that came along with that. But, now that she knew who he was, she also got a glimpse into his history and how much power he held. He was easily over two hundred years old, and was known as the Dragon of the West and the Devil of Elagrid. He obtained his dragon title first, using some forbidden form of magic in the war. He obtained his second title upon returning from the war and being captured by the Vatican. She was unsure as to what sorts of things he had done since then, as it was even stated in the many legends surrounding him that he was more powerful than anyone else in Elagrid at the time of his capture, and he was only captured due to his natural weakness to healing magic. They traveled through the swamp at a rather quick speed, though it was not as fast as she was able to go at her maximum. When he stopped, it was sudden and she was not expecting it. She almost plowed right into him. Looking where he stopped, she didn't see anything of interest, though she did feel the slightest magical energy somewhere nearby.

Alucard looked around slightly, this is where he had seen the entrance, he noticed Rue was looking around, seemingly unable to feel the exact location of the magical energy that was the gate. This was expected as he couldn't either, as that was one of the runes nearby, a scrambler. Activating the Eye of Chaos, he looked around and imediately noticed a gateway leading into a room that led into a tunnel. Deactivating the eye before Rue would notice, he turned to the gate and released a light blast of magical pressure that caused the gate to become visible and open, revealing a pathway leading underground lit by blue flames. Motioning her to follow him, they would head into the depths of the tunnel. After walking for nearly five miles, they would finally enter an immense cavern glowing with a mystical blue light. They were on a cliff side overlooking the cavern. to their right was a set of stone carved stairs. In the distance they could see a large castle in the middle of a vast lake. And in between these two places was a mystical forest, no doubt laid with traps and vicious guardians of the cave's main denizen, Aquarius. Yes, he had brought Rue here to complete her training in Dragon magic with the Water Dragon, Lady Aquarius, Sister to Lord Akatosh, his own master in the art. He chose this dragon for her simply due to her unnatural alignment to the water element and the fact this dragon is located in her homeland. He hoped that one day in the future, she would be able to grant Aquarius a good relationship with Alurand again, like Akatosh has with Ridbrad. Though, this wish was a long ways off from being complete as the two travelers still needed to reach said dragon, and then convince her to train Rue. This would be a challenging journey for sure. Making their way down the staircase, Alucard would speak up, "Ruha, The coming trials are your own to bear. I will not involve myself, you will need to use everything I have taught you and all the experiences you have attained over the past few months." Rue merely nodded as she kept walking down the stairs just ahead of Alucard himself. Once they made it to the edge of the forest, she took off towards the castle in the distance. As she ran, she was forced to stop as she heard an ungodly screeching. Looking around, she would draw her bow and ready an arrow made of her spiritual pressure. Suddenly, three chimera burst into the clearing. She fired the arrow and managed to kill one with a simple head shot, but the other two proved a bit more agile. Firing three arrows at once proved to work some to slow them down, but wasn't enough to kill them. Finally, she was forced to draw her sword and put away her bow, this would be more difficult than she thought. Rushing forwards, she dodged the bite from the snake tail of one of them, cutting it off as she rolled. She then stabbed the other through its main head, killing it instantly. The second seemed to learn by watching and was moving more defensively than the other two had. Dodging her attacks, it was truly annoying. She was forced to send a wave of fire from the end of her blade, catching it off guard. Now that that was taken care of, it was time to get back on track, headed to the castle.

Alucard had watched as Rue dealt with the Chimera, she had done well. They were created as sentries to guard this sacred land in a time long ago, by elven mages, back when the three branches of elves were still all allied. There should even be a mage left over, one who was granted agelessness in return for staying around to keep the chimera under control and to act as the main defender of the Dragon. Of course, he would step in to keep Rue from killing the man, but he needed her to defeat him in order to gain some recognition from the Dragon who calls this place home. Thinking back to the mage, he is a wood elf from a time long ago, during the early second era, Castien Petvaris. Castien was once a mage who had ascended to the highest ranks of mages within the old guild. He had power and was one of the most accomplished animal mages in all the land. He was also the first to create and control a chimera, and the reason they are viewed as evil. His creation was able to cause untold destruction during the separation of the elves, which is an often minor and overlooked battle in history. The man was also a renown archer, but this his third skill is the one to truly watch out for. He wielded dual daggers that would be able to slice up anyone who came across him and forced him to resort to close combat. As history would state, Alucard doubted that even he would be able to take on this man easily. Which is why he would allow Rue to do battle with him and prove her worth before he would come in to end the battle quickly with a fast and hard blow. It was only an hour or so later that they came across the man with five more chimera. Three were the "traditional" breed, lions and snakes mixed, but two were something else. They looked to be gorillas, lions and some form of reptile mixed together. This would truly be a difficult battle for her. She drew her bow and formed four pressure arrows, drawing back and releasing, those then expanded into four hundred arrows. This was truly unexpected, she had been training on her own and created her own unique spells! It was enough to make any teacher proud, to have your student create something of their own. The arrow assault was actually enough to take down the three weaker Chimera, but only slightly wounded the bigger ones. She put her bow away and drew her special sword. Rushing the two giant Chimera, she would slash away at them piece by piece, taking them down slowly. It was only after she managed to kill them that she was engaged by Castien himself. He would fire arrow after arrow, but she had drawn her bow and in a display of true expert marksmanship, she would intercept all of his arrows with her own. They went about this for a few minutes until she realized they were getting nowhere and she would probably run out of magical energy before he did. Causing her arrows to start multiplying by two each time she shot, she was slowly managing to overwhelm him, very slowly.

The man was growing irate, that much was obvious. After only a few seconds of this stalemate that he was losing, he dodged to the left and rushed forwards with his knives. While Rue wasn't quite ready for such a switch, she handled it nicely. Blocking with her bow, she drew her sword all in one swift stroke. Managing to cut him across his chest horizontally. She then sent a stream of water to surround him, settling on drowning him to remove him as a threat. This is the point that Alucard would step in. Appearing in front of her, he had to admit that he was shocked that she had done so well, but at the same point in time, he also recognized that perhaps he had given the mage too much credit. "I cannot let you kill him. It is important that he stays alive." He would then use a slight burst of his own spiritual pressure to dissipate her water spell. " Now go! You have finished all of your trials, we must get to the castle so your final training can begin!" Once they made their way through the forest, it was time for the hardest part of Alucard's journey to begin. Climbing the stairs into the castle was a daunting task for him, knowing what he would face on the other side. Though, he was sure that he had enough to bargain with that he would be able to get what he wanted. Opening an ornate door, he would walk inside with Rue beside him to come face to face with the second oldest of the elemental dragons, Aquarius. She was beautiful, blue as the ocean, wings that looked like curling waves, eyes that resembled the color of golden sands. She truly embodied water. She didn't speak as they entered and came to stand in front of her. Alucard bowed slightly, and Rue followed suit. "Why have you come here?" It was a simple question, but Alucard knew better than most that a wrong answer wouldn't end well for them. "Lady Aquarius, I am Alucard Anetilius, A firstborn of Nytos, Student of Lord Akatosh and master of Fire Dragon Magic. This is my student Aelrue Romaris, she has come to learn from you as I learned from your brother. She has made it here on her own power, even defeating those trusted to guard you. But, no worries, she spared his life as a show of good will and sincerity to learn under your wing." She looked to ponder this a bit as she eyed Rue with a golden stare. "If I accept, this will be the most difficult thing you have ever done in your life, girl." Rue looked up with pure resolve and determination in her eyes, "Bring it on!"

It was a long while of training. Alucard had to agree to let the two train in peace, so he went to the other end of the sacred land and trained in solitude. They trained for a long time, but by the time they had finished, Rue had gained full control over her draconic form and had even grew to a level that he had been at not too long ago. Once they each finished their training, they took off towards the land of Ridbrad. It was time for her to meet his brother. The Demon and Elven princess flew quickly and quietly over the marshlands of Ganenmarsh. It had been quite some time since he had seen the capital and he had to admit it was impressive. The defenses it boasted were second to very few he had seen in his long life. They were in their partially transformed states and as such would be mistaken for birds at the height they were flying. It would prove little worry to him even if they were engaged, he knew between the two of them they would be able to survive and escape without injury. Once they had made it over the grand city of Alurand and were flying over the northern area of the Kingdom, Alucard decided to use his eye to see where Beleg was at the moment to make sure they were not wasting their time. He could see that he was in a council with Ruzzoll, and another man that he didn't quite recognize, though he looked familiar. Anyways, the importance of this was to fulfill a wish of his, that Rue be given the chance to become a knight, with her abilities and battle prowess, she was sure to become a top class knight under Beleg's command. She had learned all he would be able to teach her, so it would be best to grant her the freedom to learn from someone else. Thinking of how powerful she would become, he couldn't help but think about how morbid he had been feeling as of late. Feeling like his life was coming closer and closer to its end with each passing month. It would be nothing for him to live for another few hundred years he thought, if he avoided confrontation. But, as the embodiment of wrath, avoidance and cowardice was not in his ways. He would always face down his fate head on and take care of all that needed to be taken care of, it was his way, after all.
