Mission 001: Relearning how to Breathe [Action]

[Action: Locked to Harry Dresden]

[It was a shock, a tangible difference that stood out among the rest. The twinge in his shoulders and the soft pillow underneath his head were secondary to the loss that he felt. He felt blind and empty without the familiar flow of images and words--but the frayed strands of the link were painfully familiar. He was reminded of that battle six years ago, when that link was severed by that man, the one who had made their world so twisted. He was reminded of another battle four years later, when he took those bullets and booted that same man from the system. Both incidents, despite their polarity, held one similarity; the conditions were altered.

For a heartbeat, Tieria felt lost in space.

He took a breath, replaced the echoes of his last order to the Raphael, and sat up underneath the covers of the bed he found himself in. He took another breath and studied his hands in a silent fascination, though he was still mindful of his surroundings. The bedroom was unfamiliar, and the absence of the electrical hum that was so familiar spoke as loudly as the strangely talkative birds outside of the windows.

This wasn't the Ptolemy, or even a location in the colonies or on Earth that he was remotely familiar with.

After a heavy, tense moment, he spoke in a soft tone:]


What...is this place?

[Action]


[It was the chill that bothered Tieria the most that afternoon, despite the comfort of his modified uniform that marked him as a member of Celestial Being.  Visible though he was with his purple hair, uniform, and wings, he took the relative quiet of the village to study and recollect himself.  He wouldn't be beaten by the shock of his entry alone--he had come too far to allow that to happen again. What little he had learned of this village and this world during his short 'briefing' was uncomfortably familiar. He was reminded of Celestial Being's original directive...and his determination to not let fate dictate his life again.

That afternoon finds him exploring the village,. He stocked up on supplies from the Shops in the Plaza. As the sun started to set he took to the Bakery to get himself a snack and a hot cup of tea before heading to the Welcome Center to read over the information provided there. He takes a brief moment to watch the landscape, the people, and the gray sky at the Fountain between stops, completely ignoring the briskly cold wind.]

[Is perfectly harmless, she swears it.]

You're welcome. A lot of people in the village like to help the New Feathers get settled in so there's lots of people who can give you all sorts of information.

As for the history of the village and this world, I think your best bet would be to take a read through of the Guide that one of the residents of the village wrote. It's got all sorts of information in it. Info on the Malnosso, the filial magic, the experiments, the drafts, all sorts of stuff! Anything else that you might want to know, you could always learn it by attending the World Sharing classes that are held at the school. Those're open to everyone in the village and completely optional.

Okay!

First, the wings on your back are super mega important! If they get damaged, it's going to hurt a lot so be sure to take care of them.

Second, you don't need money but I'm sure you've already discovered that! Everything is free.

Third, that stupid barrier surrounding the enclosure is impossible to break. Everybody gets an A for effort but that's about it.

Fourth thing, Filial magic is going to be your best friend. There's more info on that in the guide too.

Fifth thing, we periodically get summoned by the Malnosso to fight their battles for them so be on the lookout for those in the journals.

Speaking of the journals, they're going to be your source of communication and news.

[And hopefully, she's covered everything!]

Now then... is purple your favourite colour?

[If you want a summary of what's happened in Luceti experiment wise, Tieria, you may wish to ask another person. Selphie doesn't really like to talk about most of the experiments.]

Wanna bet?

[Considering that Selphie's first experience in another enclosure became infested with Zombies? Selphie's not really entirely certain about the other enclosures. Tieria might be better off asking someone else about that.]

Okay. The loser cooks the other dinner. Sound like a plan? I could always guess.

Then it's a deal!

[That's always a good thing! However, she's giving Tieria a sly, but curious look.]

Why's that? Afraid I might be right?

You doubt me! You haven't even let me guess yet!
