Iselian Commonwealth Capital - Ivory Palace
A meeting just finished. Queen Carmine walked away towards the exit of the palace, and she was more than happy to see that her diplomatic abilities worked on her favor. Her rather extravagant clothing called for attention whenever she walked on, but people paid her due respect because they knew who she was. Besides that, she exhaled pure charisma and charm. A single smile of hers warmed any cold hearted person that came to talk to.
A descendant of the Grand Master of the Wind, Maya, who sealed the Gate of Nemesis with the power of the Wind Dragon, Sylph. While she walked to the airship that brought her to the Iselian territories, and calmly walked inside.
The ship started to sail and drift through the skies, circled by a convoy of armed airships that stood close to the Queen's main transportation at all times. She wondered about her husband, and her daughter. Carmine created a small sphere of wind on her hand and smiled, thinking about the progress her progeny had after all the training and studies. To her credit, she was very supportive of Zafiria and everyone in the family knew the benefits of offering universal education.
Being a sorceress herself, Carmine knew that a society which everyone benefits from knowledge was necessary to protect her family and her homeland. Her thoughts were cut down when she received a report on an Emerald Orb that she carried with her all times. Ramirez started to talk to her.
"Greetings, your Majesty.
"Greetings, Ramirez. To what I shall owe your request?
"Your Majesty. Adam Frost manifested himself again, and...
"About that, I know
", Carmine cut him coldly. "Now, what exactly is the reason for why you called?
"Recently, a wandering Vagabond claiming to be raised in Ashihara Islands had destroyed three ghouls, single-handedly!
News that made Carmine be dumbfounded with shock. She heard about the mythos that the warriors from the eastern had. Hanging from the Flower Knights from the Kingdom of Silla, the ferocious warrior monks from Shanghai Republic and the legendary Ninja warriors from Ashihara.
Ramirez and Carmine talked about the situation at hand, and the conversation ended with the queen being mesmerized with the idea of a handsome young lad being able to do what entire groups of elite warriors and mages of Rafflesia could not.
Rafflesia Capital - Castle's meeting room
Wulfrick and Ramirez escorted Chris to the room where both Zafiria and Ozias were waiting him. The young lad's breath had became intense and he felt some strange, gloomy aura in the air. Eyes always facing forwards, he walked retaining his composure and soon they were at the court.
Zafiria's mesmerizing beauty was nothing compared to the imposing figure of her father. Something that he knew very well in the eastern lands, is that any Daimyo - a "governor", had a greater rule in the land due to the strict differences between the aristocracy and the peasantry. Trying to keep cool under the pressure that he felt in that moment, Chris bowed down to Ozias, respectfully.
"Your Majesty, King Ozias of Rafflesia. It is an honor for this humble vagabond to meet such an honorable man.
As he went back into a standing position, a thick purple smoke started to spread across the room. Everything froze, with the exception of Ozias.
Adam manifested himself in front of Ozias, smirking in a very frightening way. "Greetings, Ozzy old chap. How's it going? After all... it's thanks TO ME that you managed to marry a descendant of the Grand Master Maya... and your daughter, hmmm... such a beauty you have here. However, I couldn't forget the little aggression you did to me. You disappoint me with your ingratitude.
Frost snapped his fingers, and everyone in the room was busy trying to understand what just happened.
