Faye was surprised when she saw the other people who would be working with her arriving. She was expecting it to be a very diverse team, but wasn't expecting it to be that diverse. With the arrival of the new agents though, the normally full of energy and cheerful Faye stopped for a moment, almost as if taking in the amount of information that was suddenly provided. Due to her magic sensitivity, the moment a few of the agents entered the room, she felt that there was something going on with a few of them. It was different from the usual magic item that some people carried with them, either for protection, convenience or maybe vanity, Faye was accustomed in feeling those trinkets and items from normal people and due to how common it was, she most of the times ignored it... Unless the item had a particularly powerful magic or if it was some kind of dark or negative magic. Unlike that type of feeling though, the way their own magic felt and the magic in the air was reacting to a few of the agents was certainly worthy of a closer investigation.
The first one that drew her attention was Michael or better, not Michael himself, but the teenager that entered the room with him. His magic and the way it behaved itself were clearly different than normal people. It wasn't even a matter of intensity, but it was the magic itself, it's origin and how it behaved. Looking at him with a curious expression, Faye approached the teenager, leaning forward almost enough so the boy could clearly see her different colored eyes and the glint of wild magic on them as she tilted her head as she looked at him, almost as if studying the boy for a moment. After a brief moment, she gave a step back, looking at him with a mischievous, almost a bit smug smile before it changed to a kind and amused expression."I wonder how many stories do you have to tell... How many years have you lived... I would love to hear them sometime."
she said with a kind smile before she walked away, turning her attention to the others.
Before she could continue her small inspection of the members though, one of the women who were first in the room when Faye arrived spoke up. Giving a small wave towards the demon woman when the other woman mentioned that her name was Madeleine. When she mentioned unclothing herself though, Faye was a bit surprised. What perhaps was most interesting on her reaction to the woman's words though was that she wasn't embarrassed or anything. Instead, her confusion was more regarding the reason for her to uncloth herself though.
When she did though, Faye was really surprised by what she saw. Completely ignoring the parts that she 'didn't' see on the woman though, Faye was just really amazed and curious when she saw that the woman was in fact, an android."Wow! That is so cool!"
Faye said, suddenly blinking nearby the android woman, whom introduced herself as Unit 13K, or Amanda. The entire time Amanda was explaining about her origin and what she was though, Faye was either circling around her or straight up blinking, inspecting the motors on her joints and how her body was made. While Faye did filter most of the boring stuff, she did catch most of the important stuff."Hey! I have a few questions if you don't mind!"
Faye said after blinking back to her place as she raised a hand."So... Did you really work on spaceships? I heard a lot of stories about them but never saw one. Well... I've never been to space either, but I imagine zero gravity must be really fun... Do you guys need to eat and rest too or you need only to recharge or something? Oh! Can you guys change parts if you feel like it? Like, it would be fun to be a bit taller..."
she said, looking to herself and then to the really tall orc woman, whom, much to Faye's surprise, after introducing herself as Dura, would also say that she had worked on the ships when The Shattering happened. After she stopped for a moment, she realized that there were still other people to introduce themselves and her questions could probably be left to be answered afterwards."Oop! Sorry! I wont interrupt everyone's introduction! It's just that it's the first time I saw someone like Amanda so I was a bit curious. When we have some free time, I would love to hear your answers to all those questions, by the way!"
Faye said, whispering the last part to Amanda with a mischievous wink.
Just after Amanda introduced herself though, a dwarf woman who was mentioning something about being a tough mission before Amanda introduced herself, let out a small 'huh', surprised by Amanda's metallic body. Faye on the other hand, was surprised by the small dwarf."Oh my! You're so cute and adorable!! Can I hug you?"
Faye said, blinking near the dwarf woman and starting to move herself almost as if she was going to hug her before she replied, but the way the dwarf woman looked at her made her hold herself, clearly fighting her urge to just hug her.
As the others continued to introduce themselves though, she did her best to behave herself and hear them without interrupting. That didn't save them from her small 'investigation' when she found someone interesting though, like, for example, Ullross. His magic also felt a bit different, although it was not like the teenager that came with Michael, it was still undeniably different from how normal people were. What did draw her attention though was that she could feel another... strange feeling of magic with him. It was faint, but it was undeniably there and Faye could feel a certain discomfort whenever she tried to feel that magic. It wasn't powerful, but the discomfort immediately made her think about dark magic. Not only that, but Ullross' magic reacted... strangely with it. It was almost as if it was being swallowed, disappearing into that faint, strange magic. Faye never saw anything like that before, but she couldn't chase away the feeling that there was something off with it. Not in a good way."There is... something... with you. It's a different magic... It 'feels' uncomfortable. I don't like it."
Faye said to Ullross, with a serious expression as she looked at him, with a rather concerned look.
Faye was surprised that there were so many interesting people on the team. She was expecting to be at least a few boring people but they looked mostly fine for now. One of them, the next one to introduce himself did look
really boring though... Xaviron's choice of clothes were much like his introduction, extremely monochromatic and rather boring on Faye's eyes, whose fashion style couldn't be more different from Xaviron.
Before Faye could notice though, a brief silence filled the room."What? It's my turn now?"
she asked, a bit surprised with her thoughts about the other agents being interrupted. "I am Faye Hayward, youngest daughter of the Hayward family. I was just recruited for the OMR, so I don't have any previous experience with such things. That said, I also came to the OMR in order to make a few tests regarding my blood, my powers and be registered."
she said."My older sister insisted that it was probably a good idea to tell this to my co-workers before I came here, but I don't think it's something that incredible or strange, seeing the people we have reunited here today, right?"
Faye said, with a mischievous smile as she clearly glanced at a few members such as the teenager that came with Michael, Ullross and even Amanda herself."Anyways, I am Half-Fae. My powers and my fae blood were discovered after I disappeared for a month in a certain park in England. My family always say it was only for a month, but the time I spent with the fairies felt like much longer, at least according to the perception of time I had when I was five..."
Faye explained, clearly getting offtrack."I can, quite obviously, blink, but I can also open portals. It's like teleportation but with a few caveats. My blood also explains why I can feel the flow of magic, both natural, of people or items. The OMR said that the reason why I can use my blink ability so naturally without getting my magic exhausted is due to my blood, which is one of the reasons why I was recruited."
she continued. "As I said before, I don't have experience in being an OMR agent or anything of the sort, but I always a very active girl and my physical isn't bad. Besides, not only my abilities could prove to be useful but I can also help quite a lot in tracking anything related to magic. So I will be under your care."
she finished with a smile and a small bow before she began to go back to her place.
The moment she finished though and looked at the people present, her eyes met with a man who haven't introduced himself yet. While she didn't notice him before, the very moment she paid more attention to him her smile disappeared and the color on her face clearly drained a bit. He was 'the same' as Ullross, but unlike him, the 'thing' that man had inside of himself was much, much darker and clearly much more harmful to him than what Ullross' had. Even though it was in a much lower intensity, she knew exactly what it was. She had already felt that magic before on the day of The Shattering. While it wasn't even near the intensity of what she felt on that day, it was still very impactful to her. The very nature of that thing's magic repelled her own. It was suffocating, it made her feel incredibly uncomfortable, almost as if her skin was tingling. Besides that, the memories of what she felt on the day of The Shattering came back once more, making that small encounter even worse for Faye."You're... similar to Ullross but... Why... do you have this inside you?!"
she muttered, trembling a bit, nervously giving a few steps back, increasing the distance between them. The clear change in Faye's behavior and how silent she suddenly became made it obvious that there was something very wrong.
