Nythera: Oooh, I feel... funny! That little Decadere couldn't have hurt me, but I feel WEIRD now!
* Loads Elemental Nythera *
Elucidas: I received your message, child. I trust your meeting with the DragonLords went well?
Nythera: Oh, they talked to me alright. That father of Elysia's can talk for HOURS!
Nythera: He went on and on about how wonderful dragons are -- which is true...
Nythera: And how majestic they look -- which we do...
Nythera: And how by cultivating relationships with dragons, mankind can better the world - which makes sense.
Nythera: But we didn't do any of that until AFTER I took on a Decadere dragon on my own. And won!
Elucidas: I do not mean to be rude, little one. But... you battled a full-grown Decadere. On your own? And without your full powers?
Nythera: Well... hmmph. It was a SMALL one.
Nythera: It might have been a baby.
Elucidas: Aaah. Now it becomes clear.
Nythera: But it was STILL a Decadere! And I beat it! Which means that once I have my ALL my powers, I'll be able to take on an adult and win!
Elucidas: That is our hope. that is what we will work towards. But tell me, did anything happen when you slew the young Decadere?
Nythera: Now that you mentioned it... Yes!
Nythera: It exploded into a shower of sparks, which flew around me and then INTO me. Void dragon sparks tickle.
Elucidas: Oh? Oh my. That DOES change things. I can see... I must think... yes. Yes, that will work!
Nythera: What ARE you talking about?
Elucidas: Stand still, child.
Nythera: Why did you do THAT? Your breath smells like fire and pickled fish.
Elucidas: *sigh* Calm yourself, young one. I was testing something, and I've been proven correct.
Elucidas: You have taken into yourself the essence of a Decadere Void dragon by absorbing the sparks your saw.
Elucidas: This will make it possible for you to act as a bridge between the Creatioux and our wayward brethren.
You shall unite us.
You shall save us.
Our salvation lies within you!
Nythera: Next time WARN me before breathing into my face, alright?
Nythera: But good to know about the bridge thing. I wondered how I was going to save you.
Nythera: Oh, I knew I'd come up with something- I always do. But this seems easy enough.
Elucidas: It might be a BIT harder than you expe-
Nythera: So, does this mean you'll give me my Void magic, too?
Nythera: I should really have that if I'm going to confront the Decadere again.
Nythera: Which I'm going to need to do if I'm going to unite the two of you.
Nythera: I think I've been doing well so far, don't you?
Nythera: I'm sure Warlic would agree.
Elucidas: *chuckle* Whether or not Warlic approves of you, I do, and as your Guardianship has been given over to us...
Elucidas: ... WE will decide when you are ready to assume the rest of your powers.
Nythera: But! --
Elucidas: And I would say that time has come.
Nythera: Oh. Well. Good! I completely agree!
Elucidas: There is one impediment, however. To be taught the intricacies of Void magic, you must learn from one of your own blood.
Elucidas: I will lift the restriction on your Void magic enough so that you will be able to learn from your ancestor, but not use it until after you've been taught.
Elucidas: Once you've undergone your lessons, your new magic will become available to you.
Nythera: But my mother doesn't HAVE Void magic, and my father is a human!
Nythera: I CAN'T learn from my parents! You'll have to teach me!
Elucidas: That is not possible. Like sings to like. The Void magic in your veins will only recognize another of your bloodline.
Elucidas: If there is no one living to teach you, you must journey to the land of the Dead, and find one of your kin there.
Elucidas: Hmmm. ... Perhaps ... If I recall correctly, you had an ancestor, Azhura... MANY years gone. She wielded Void magic.
Elucidas: A mighty dragoness, she was. An innovator, an explorer, and her sacrifice saved us all, though few know about it.
Elucidas: You should seek her out. She will, I am sure, instruct you.
Elucidas: You will feel drawn to her spirit; you will know when you come upon her.
Death: Halt! Who are you to invade my Realm? To disturb the Peace of the Grave?
Nythera: I am Nythera, Dragonmage Extraordinaire. Or, well, I WILL be! And I NEED to speak to one of your subjects.
Death: The dead are beyond the concerns of the living. No one approaches them save with my permission!
Nythera: I see. Well. Hmmm.
Nythera: *thinking* He OBVIOUSLY expects me to challenge him. But I'm far too crafty for that!
Nythera: May- may I HAVE your permission to pass and seek my great-great-great-grandmother?
Death: Heroes don't usually ASK permission.
Death: I've never had the chance to just say "yes" or "no." It's always "STAND ASIDE, DEATH" or "I'LL VANQUISH YOU, DEATH!"
Death: Heroes never stop to think that maybe I don't WANT to battle them. That maybe I do favors because Death can be kind.
Nythera: I almost died once. I don't remember you; all I remember is struggling to stay alive.
Death: Yes, child. If you ever have the opportunity to resist, do not go gentle into that good knight.
Death: Sir Vival is a wonderful administrator of the Underworld, but he's not very kind to the newly dead.
Death: But I digress. WHY is it that you must venture into my Realm? Whom do you seek?
Nythera: My ancestor. I need her! She is the only one I know who can teach me how to use my powers.
Nythera: Without her, I have no chance of reuniting the Creatioux and Decadere.
Nythera: The Creatioux have been so good to me. I- I would like to help them, to say thank you.
Death: Helping others is a noble cause. I commend you. I will grant your request.
Death: Look inside yourself. Blood calls to blood. Blood is and was, and ever will be. You are connected to your kin.
Death: Sense her, and she will appear. Go now, and find her. You will be welcome in my Realm, young one.
Nythera: Are... are you Azhura? You feel... FAMILIAR somehow.
Azhura: That I am! It's been centuries since someone sought me out. You. Purple-hair. You're a descendant of mine.
Azhura: Which one are you, now? I've so many, it's hard to keep track.
Nythera: I am Nythera. I'll probably be the most famous of your descendants by the time I'm done.
Azhura: Haha, I like you, little one. You remind me of me at your age.
Azhura: Hmmm... I sense... Void magic inside of you, but muted. They blocked you, didn't they?
Nythera: Yes! But I suppose it was necessary. Everyone else seems to think so, anyway.
Nythera: Elucidas -- he's a Creatioux dragon-
Azhura: Oh yes, yes I know of him. Quite the charmer, isn't he?
Nythera: Um... I guess so. If you like smelly old-
Azhura: Finish your thought dear. Keeping in mind, of course, that Elucidas and I are old, OLD friends. *smile*
Nythera: Er- ah- nevermind.
Nythera: I'll be allowed to have my magic back, though. If you'll teach me how to use it, that is.
Azhura: Oh my, yes. We'd better teach you how to use it! If we don't, you're apt to destroy yourself.
Azhura: *thinking* May she never endure what I have!
Azhura: The Void is a deadly place, and the element that infuses it is both addictive and powerful.
Azhura: Come here, dear. We will begin without delay!
Azhura: Well! THAT was certainly the way to do it!
Azhura: You've done well. Yes, beyond my expectations.
Azhura: I do believe you're ready to handle the raw stuff of the Void.
Azhura: Your finesse will grow with your experience.
Azhura: I can teach you no more.
Azhura: You are ready to grasp as much of your power as you can hold, my dear.
