PostSubject: Gift for the Master [Flashback]   Fri Sep 17, 2010 7:59 pm

The Treasurer of Mandira, Settozai, returns from Tara Mura after finalizing all of the negotiations for a major trade shipment of ambrosia infused elixirs, herbs, salves, and foods. The negotiations took longer than originally anticipated, but they all worked out for both sides. As the ship nears the coast by the outpost, Settozai and his protege, Sikke, are running around the ship making sure that all of the goods are still secure. Sikke is currently checking on a personal gift from a member of the Tara Mura Trade Council, a singing bird. My oh my, this realm is full of interesting creatures. Settozai has suspicions that the bird is actually a spirit, but he has yet to be able to confirm it.

Sikke feeds the bird and pets her gently. Sikke talks to the bird for a while figuring that it is safe to tell a bird her ideas about different things. It is obvious that Sikke cares deeply about her teacher and wants to impress him with her ability. Sikke, being a normal human, does not notice anything strange about the dark feathered bird. To her, it is simply a beautiful bird.

The Treasurer's return is awaited back at the Outpost. The outpost is in a state of mild chaos as we are preparing to finish my campaign to unify the island. Sanzon is out and about doing his own thing, so I am getting the troops ready. Opening this new wave of trade with Tara Mura will cover the cost of the campaign and give me the funds that I need in order to accelerate the production of houses for my people. The temporary housing is subpar for what I want for them, but it is what they must deal with. With the unification will also come more land and territory to move them around more.

They arrive at the Outpost HQ where I am settling disputes and judicial matters. Sikke is carrying the bird cage into the Audience Chamber. Timing could have been a little better since the person brought before me at that moment was condemned to be tortured and executed for spying for Wurin against me. I sit atop my "throne" which is really a large chair with drapings put over it. It worked for me for now. My voice speaks, "What news, Settozai?" He walks forward and smiles telling me that all arrangements have been taken care of and the shipment is set to be delivered in a week and I will personally deliver them. I have also secured a shop in Tara Mura for our merchants to operate from. We will leave security there to watch after the shop. Oh and there is a gift for you, my lord from the Trade Council of Tara Mura." I look up at him and raise my eyebrow at him. Sikke steps forward with the bird cage and shows it to me. I look at the bird then at Settozai. "The bird sings, my lord, and sings with such a beautiful voice that you cannot help but to listen and enjoy it." I look at the bird and motion for him to get the bird to start singing. Settozai looks at the nightingale and tells it to sing.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

It had been a while, I knew not how long. Days bled into weeks and weeks into months while in captivity. I had been spit out in the past, in some remote village where I was thrown into a cage and my wings clipped by some fat merchant. And so I sat, with the merchant trying to coax me to sing. I sang once for him, hoping he would let me go. But it only made me more valuable. Perhaps wanting to come to the past was not such a good idea. The merchant sold me to someone. He felt odd, but I remained silent and slept. He seemed to be happy about the purchase and somewhere along the way, I sensed that showing myself to be what I was, would not be a prudent idea either. My life was getting worse. My wings clipped and my leg tethered to a perch, I could not go far. My life was endlessly dull and dreary on this ship ride. At least the sounds of the ocean were soothing.

Then a human began to show interest in me and would come and talk to me, like humans sometimes do. Telling me their secrets, not understanding that the bird was only one of my forms. I sighed as she came again and began to stroke my dark feathers. It was pleasant and I would cluck when she talked to me. It seemed only the proper way for a bird to listen. I would preen and take the food generously offered. Even upon one dark evening, when the moon was out, I gifted her with a song. In fact the whole boat was gifted with the song and then I went back to my silence. Soon enough we reached land and I was placed back into a cage.

I was back behind bars again and was taken before someone in a makeshift throne room. The man on that throne shocked me a bit, I clucked my beak and wondered what a spirit such as this one was doing in the past. And from the looks of it, and the look of power and might this man could wield, he was trying to rule. Something about his movement, the look on his face, his body language was saying that he had the power to destroy cities. Then I heard the man tell me to sing. No one commanded me to sing. I cawed unhappily and ruffled my dark feathers up until the white ends were showing. Then my wings fanned out and hopped from foot to foot in annoyance. If the girl asked me to sing, I would gift her with a song since she had seen to my food and company during the voyage. But I would not be commanded to sing for this crowd. My feathers came down as I calmed and went about nibbling on the underside of my wing pointedly ignoring the command now.

My facial expressions gives Settozai reason to worry. The man sentenced to die was retrieved by women in dark crimson armor and taken off in shackles and binds. The look on the women's faces was cold and heartless. The entire aire about these women was one of ruthless beauty and cruelty. I had made it so and that is how I wanted them when they were being told to seduce an enemy or please a valued ally. They should inspire fear. One of them walks over and kneels next to my throne. I look at her then look at Settozai. "You know that I hate to have my time wasted, Settozai. You said the bird could sing and all I heard was a crow. You are trying my patience, good friend. Not a good idea today." Settozai bows humbly and apologizes, "Forgive me, Master. (Turning and whispering to the bird.) Come on, bird. Sing damn it!" The Onisu knew full well what I was capable of. He had seen and felt my power grow since I first captured him, so he did not wish to suffer at my hands.

The mistress at my side and draws one of her eskrima style short sticks from her "sheath" for it and grins at Settozai. My facial expression changes to pure annoyance at the fact that I am STILL waiting for a song. Settozai's fear turns into anger towards the bird and he starts to threaten the bird as I rise from my seat and my eyes glow first before my entire body starts to radiate with energy and Settozai winces and ducks his eyes slightly down and diagonally as he tries to fight off the pain.

Worried for her Master, Sikke pleads with the bird, "Please little bird, please sing." There is genuine sadness in Sikke's eyes at the sight of her teacher and big brother /father figure in such agonizing pain.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

I watched as the drama unfurled before me. My eyes bright with anger at the threats to my person. How dare this fool threaten me, the Nightingale. But then the girl looked at me with those sad eyes and I relented. My nature and love of gentle souls taking over. I was created to give joy, inspire sorrow, please the heavens themselves. My very nature made me more attuned to emotions, especially strong ones. My head down as I watched the man in pain and the girl so obviously begging my voice from my golden throat. I opened my mouth and sang. Sang a wordless song that surpassed all of my songs on the mortal earth. A song that harkened back to the days of bliss. I sang with ever fiber of being, spirit included. I gifted this tyrant with one of the best songs I could.

The song was sadness in of itself, a Lament for the Ages (Heaven's Lament). My heart went into this solitary song, wordless but still filled with grief. The power of the song capturing the attention of all within hearing. I sang this because a human girl had begged it of me, a higher being with the purpose to look after lesser beings. The song would tug at the heartstrings of most, some would stand in awe, and some would lust after the power held in this one song coming from the rather large nightingale. I would hold the song for a good, solid 4 minutes. When the song was finished, I panted and tucked my head on my wing to weep for my own loss. My vocal chords shot for the time being.

Everyone in the room stops what they are doing and just turns to listen to the bird. I look at her and this voice becomes so soothing and filled with passionate emotion that I find my anger slowly starting to subside. With my anger and thoughts of forcing Settozai's hand leaving me, my thoughts and attention fall upon the... my head tilts to the side slightly as I take a deeper look at the large bird. "Interesting. Hey, bird girl, I can see you." I chuckle and tell Sikke to take the bird out of the cage. Everyone looks at me until I scan the room and they propose no further protest. Sikke does as command and as soon as the bird would be out of the cage, I would use telekinesis via Myndius to keep her from fleeing. The bird would be able to move around but not very fast or far. Speaking telepathically to her, I smile visually and say, "Reveal yourself. I already know what you are." Now that is partially true. I know that she is a spirit, but I cannot be sure if she is some new form of half breed or if she is kami or oni. I return to the throne and the kneeling maiden looks at Settozai and pouts. The Treasurer scowls at her. Noticing the two I like at both of them then to Settozai, "If you two are done scowling at each other, you may go, Settozai. You have duties to tend to, I believe. So tend to them." The Trade Group bows respectfully before they turn and leave. Sikke is told to remain and Settozai looks back at me but does not protest. She continues holding the cage for the moment.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

I brought my head out from under my wing and glanced at the man again. He was looking at me strangely and as he spoke to me I watched silently as the girl came to released me from the cage. I spread my wings in a quick and graceful manner, my wings ready to pump in pre-flight when I felt a pressure settle on me. A spell was keeping me from being able to escape. My eyes turned to gaze at the man, the orbs like molten silver that was a key to understanding that I was not a normal bird. My sharp beak snapped in frustration as my feathers ruffled a bit. Drawing my wings back to my side, I settle down as I hear him in my mind. It sounded oddly familiar. Why should I follow such a command? Then his attention divert to the one who had bought me. I would because I wanted to give this man a piece of my mind. With a flash of light, my form began to shift and reform as bones lengthened and the beak dropped. I stood, in my human form wearing the typical white robes of the time period. More like the desert nomads than the those here on the island. My black hair settles around my shoulders and down my back, framing my soft features. My full, sensuous lips pulled down in something between a frown and a pout. The pout would be something natural for those expressive, red lips.

A kami I was and not a happy one at the moment.

Sikke gasps and the Maiden smiles widely at the sight. I rise my seat and float down. I bow to her and introduce myself, "Splendid. I am known as the Krodha ki Yaksa, the demigod of fury, and Lord of this island of Mandira. It is a pleasure to have you here." I grin at her and continue, "And you are?" I look her over and judging by her garbs, I wonder if she is from Hejar or if she is from the Wattu Village as I have seen similar fashions worn amongst their villagers. Living on this island, the women prefer looser and breezier clothing... especially during the warmer months, which is basically every month here.

The maiden does not take her eyes off of the nightingale as I speak to the spirit. I have never seen a Onikonjou in such a gentle beast form and I have never seen a yokai become a human, so she is either a kami, which would be my guess, but she could also be a spirit human hybrid of some sort. I try to decipher her spirit type, but I can't get a lock on her. I am sure that she is a kami.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

Well, it seemed like he was happy about me being there, though in what aspect I was there, I still did not know. Did he expect me to be slave, servant, or guest? But at least we were introducing ourselves. With a fluid and graceful swirl of robe hem, I curtsied and rose. My eyes lowering and then raising to meet his again. They were still that molten silver, almost like mercury. I answer his introduction with my own, in a voice that had that sexy huskiness of melted chocolate. "I am called Aria Serenda Vivace, the Nightingale." Breaking his gaze, I scan those present and wonder what would happen to me next. the humans in the island village seemed to like to cage me and make me sing. Would he be the same? If he was a spirit, he might be old enough to know of my name. My voice was sculpted by my creator to please the heavens themselves. Yes, I was full of myself at times. With good reason.

After scanning the room, I figure that he was the most dangerous of them all. Especially if he held the leashes of the others in the room.

Aria? There is a twinge in my head as I gain a sense of familiarity upon hearing that name. I shrug it off and tell her that I want her to remain here at the Outpost. To be perfectly honest, I did not need to be distracted with a battle looming, but whatever she is intrigues me and I want to understand her further. "So tell me, Aria the Nightingale, what exactly are you? You are certainly not mortal and you don't really seem to be a half breed either. You intrigue me, so you can relax as you are safe here on Mandira. Soon I will take you on a tour of the island before my mind must return to the coming campaign to unify my island." The maiden knelt at my side looks up at me then over at Aria. I nod to her to confirm that the sex appeal of the bird woman would make her a candidate to help train my warrior nymphs in the arts of seduction. There are many capacities in which she could serve me and be of use to Mandira.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

He spoke of being safe here and touring the island. I blinked and thought about it for a moment. Then I unfurled dark black wings. I loved being in this human form. But the wings were still useless since they had been clipped. "I am a servant of the heavens" I whispered in that melodious voice. "I once sang for my creator and the whole entirety of the heavens. Every evening, my voice rose in song for the benefit of the residents of upper skies. I was and am and will always be, song in its truest form. I was made to please the highest. I am a Kami in human terms" I was not boosting or bragging, but stating it with the utmost truth. That is what I was and I was proud of my heritage. I was the first of my kind and I knew it. My chin raised up a notch and the wings draped around me, I bore myself with nobility and grace, in every movement and every word. The look between the two did not go unnoticed as I wondered what those looks between the two of them could mean.

"Song in its truest form, you say? So then you are one of the Kami known as a Muse. I thought you all were just a story told to young warrior kami to inspire them as when hearing your songs upon returning from battle, the warrior kami believed it to be praise of victory and maintaining order in the heavens. At least, that is what I was told. How did you come to be here in the realm of the mortals?" Looking her over in this humanoid form, there is a manner of familiarity with her as if I have seen her before. Only it wasn't in this realm. I do not believe that I have encountered her in Onitoshi b/c what would she be doing there. So elegance and vibrant a being has no place down there. Looking at her wings, I decide to move closer. Most kami that I have come across do not have or do not release wings, so seeing them up close after so long is rather enjoyable.

I rise from my throne and approach her. My hands start glowing with white energy as I do so. My facial expression is plain as I show no pleasure or displeasure as I approach. I am curious to know whether or not she currently fears me. I sniff the air to see her scent had changed at all. If she was indeed afraid, that would make me chuckle a bit.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

A muse, if that is what he wanted to call me, I would let him. My expressive eyes narrowed as he approached. But softly and without malice I answered his question, my voice still as lilting as a nighttime lullaby. "I asked to be here. I made the mistake of trying to bring my music to the mortals as a gift. And then when I could not return to the heavens, I realized just what I had done. My folly, my sorrow, and my pain." My voice broke at the end and even though I was not singing I was still able to gain the emotions of some in the room. It had been as if my heart had been torn from my chest, and I had wept. All of that emotion was still in my voice and it moved mere mortals. Fear was not an emotion in my psyche at the moment, sorrow was weighing it down. And perhaps my words had been enough to make the mortals in the room weep. As he continued to approach, I would let him come closer, my eyes following his movements. He seemed to be focused upon my wings. I had chosen to keep them. I would allow him to touch if he so chose to but my eyes remained narrowed as if waiting for him to try to clip them again. Just a little while longer and I would be able to fly again. BUt he did not need to know that.

The energy flowing from my hands starts to jump off of my fingertips first before it just rapidly flows from my hands and swirls around them. My energy would begin to channel into her wings. I must admit that this is somewhat exciting for me. My hands would reach out to touch her wings and assuming that she still does not flinch or turn hostile towards me, the energy would begin to flow into her wings. Their color would become more radiant and the feathers would take on a much healthier look to them. I take a step back and blink once slowly showing signs of fatigue. The warrior maiden moves to my side and her hand goes to her weapon, my mind speaks out in a broadcast, "Stand down. She did nothing. I have been pushing myself more than I should have been recently." Since both Aria and the maiden heard what was said, it would be possible for Aria to think that perhaps, she just didn't see my lips move. The maiden tells me that my mortal servants are here to ensure that I do not overexert myself while I am still in my state of recovery. She calls for a servant to bring me my goblet of Dainos' new ambrosia infused tea made specifically for me. The water would do the trick I am sure.

I smile at her and turn my attention back to Aria, "There you are. Now you should be able to fly once again. If you wish to leave, then I will not stop you and you will be welcomed to return to Mandira when you wish. I will not promise you that if you stay that you will find the same satisfaction that you found singing for the heavens, but I can tell you that you will have a new home and that the mortals here will cherish your voice and your songs. I have looked upon their faces and you are able to move them in a way that even makes me smile. That choice will be yours. For now, would you care to join me for a little respite in the sky?" I grin at her regaining my strength as I drink from my goblet.

Time: Night
Weather: Clear skies
Song:

I watch him as he begins to heal my feathers. Slowly I bring them out after he is finished ignoring the mortals around us for the moment. The feathers spread and fan out as I look at my wings. Then slowly I pull them back to me and gaze at the man. "My heartfelt thanks." Then I notice that he had told them all to stand down and I almost chuckle. Then his next words had be cocking my head to the side watching him. A posture very similar to the bird that I was for the most part. I was free to come and go. That was good. "Thank you for releasing me and healing me" I offer him a small bow and glance around at the others before nodding. "Yes, I believe I will stay for awhile, but the offer of a flight would be acceptable. I have not been able to fly for months." With that the light flashes as I assume my nightingale form. With a flap and a flutter I land on his shoulder, my talons as wickedly sharp as a hawk. They do not dig in, but still there is some power in those claws.

So she preferred to fly in her animal form? Hmm... to each its own. I lift off the ground and tell the Maiden next to the throne to have a room prepared in the Command Center. "She will remain as a guest of mine and as such, she will be tended to." The Maiden nods without question or protest before she disappears to carry out my bidding. With that settled, I take off flying out of the audience chamber and straight up into the sky. My ascent stops about 40 or 50 feet above the Outpost. Looking out around the island, I speak to Aria, "Currently, I control a little over two thirds of this island and in three days time, I will control the rest of this island. This island, Mandira, will be united under one ruler... me. There is beauty all around us, Aria, and I will do whatever is necessary to keep it that way. I think you will come to like it here on Mandira and the people will benefit greatly from the gentleness of your spirit. What skills do you possess besides song?" I will never claim to be all that empathic and I decide to stay out of her mind as best as possible, but I can feel something about this one. Something so soft with the potential to be so serene. I figure that if I was to give her a musical corps and let her train them, it could make for quite the enjoyable project and provide a great boost to morale this close before the battle. There is so much that I wish to discuss with her, but I know that I need to be focused on planning and strategizing for the campaign. Still, I am sovereign, so I suspect that I can afford at least a few more moments of respite with this interesting being.

His questions come as we are flying above his island kingdom for lack of a better term. He seemed to be a bit puzzled by the fact that I was in my bird form although he did not say anything to me, so with a small voice that could be heard on the wisps of the wind, I let him in on the secret that I could talk in this form, just chose not to. Or purhaps because I was settled upon his shoulder and it was so soft that he might not have heard it otherwise. "This is my natural form, the more human form is harder to hold for me." The island was beautiful and breath taking. "My skills run to the magical side. Although not a fighter, I have offensive spells. But I prefer not to fight unless it is needed." I disliked battle and preferred words to it. I was not a coward, I just did not like to hurt the creations that the creators built and shaped into the flesh known as humans. As he hovered for a moment, I gazed around the island again. "My biggest asset is the magic of my voice. I also have a touch of healing magic and know a smattering of the lighter magics." My body shifted from foot to foot as I turned my head to glance at him. "There are times I wish I could keep the human form longer." It was said wistfully and with longing. "Sometimes just as much as I long to go home. But your island is beautiful. It will suit me for awhile."

I fly with her towards the nearby western coast towards the beach so that we could look out at the ocean. From here, we would see the northern mainland off in the distance but we would also see the little fishing boats with my people out on the water with their nets and buckets of bait and a sort of crumb feed that is meant to lure the smaller sea life to the fishermen. The sun's reflection off of the water rests at an angle of roughly thirty degree again to the west. It was still fairly early into the afternoon. The light blue look of the ocean gleams as I observe in silence. There was much to say, but for this moment, I just wanted to take in the sights and enjoy this cool, almost lukewarm breeze that flows past us. My loose silvery strands of hair flutter freely in the breeze. After a brief silence, I respond to her, "While I am sure, you would do well in battle, you are too precious and delicate a beauty to be placed in harm's way. Your talents give me a great deal to think about in terms of how to utilize you and how to ensure your enjoyment while you are here. I must turn my focus back to the campaign that is to come, but if you truly wish to embrace your humanoid form, I can help you with that. After I unify this island, we will take a trip to gain you what you desire. For now, I would like your voice to keep the morale elevated in the outpost. If you are up to it, I wish for you to form a sort of Bard Guild here and improve the skills of those who join it so that the morale and livelihood of the city is maintained. Also, I want this guild to begin preparations for chronicling a history of Mandira. I want to ensure that the deeds and trials of this island are known to generations to come. Will you do this for me, Aria?" My gaze shifts from her back out to the ocean. I exhale slowly with an aire of happiness about me. Truly beautiful to behold.

I am silent even after he speaks, for a few moments more as I think about everything. A bard guild, that might not be to my liking, but I would try it since I had never done it before. My eyes gazed out at the water and watched the ebb and flow of the water as it reached the shore, leaving a trail of foam upon the soft sands. The wind whipped my feathers into a fluff s we watched. Finally I spoke to him, "I will do as you ask on a trial basis. I am not overly sure of this bard guild you wish me to create but I will try. I am not use to being around others as much. So forgive me if I seem aloof." I used my beak for a moment to calm my feathers down before turning back to speak to him. "I will try it. If nothing else, I can chronicle your history." With that I nip at the tip of his ear. Not enough to break the skin but enough to seal a deal. "Thank you"

When she gives her answer, I can hear and feel the reservation in her. As it stands, she is the most qualified being a muse, but my hope is that during this trial period, she will find someone to sort of take on the role on a regular basis and work to build this guild as they will be the singers of praise and uplifters of morale. They will also aid in being our historians and scribes. The bards will honestly have a pretty wide range of functions like the merchants and carpenters. I smile at the comment regarding her being aloof. "You have nothing to worry about, Aria. You have yet to become fully accustomed to this realm and its ways. If the task is not to your liking, let me know and we will find other arrangements that are more suitable to your tastes." I pause for a moment and say jokingly, "If you blossom into a social butterfly, there is no limit to what role you could play here. Let us return for now."

We would indeed return to the Outpost where I would have a servant take her and show her around the Outpost and to her quarters within the Command Center. Once he takes her, I would return to the strategy room where my advisors and I would resume our planning for the coming campaign. I give her another glance as I walk away before I smile and continue on my way.

All WC will go to acquiring more merchants (bards) who will be the foundation of my resort village in southern Mandira! ^_^ It's party time!

OOC: Lemme know when you wanna start the next one in the current, post-saga timeline. :)
