Nythera: I feel AMAZING! I can feel the power pulsing through me! I can take on ANYthing!
* Loads Elemental Nythera *
Nythera: I am myself again! I didn't know that such a large part of me was missing, but after talking to Azhura...
Nythera: After her lessons, I felt SOMEthing snap into place. It was like having a broken bone set all of a sudden.
Nythera: A pain I never knew I felt was suddenly GONE! I feel wonderful! Like I could do anything!
Nythera: And I WILL!
Elucidas: *chuckle* Slowly, child, slowly. You have only just regained all of your powers.
Elucidas: You are still young, and the powers new. You must have patience.
Nythera: But I want to use them NOW! The electricity coursing through my veins...
Nythera: ... it feels like grabbing ahold of purple lightning and drinking it up.
Nythera: ... That makes no sense. But it's how I feel.
Elucidas: I am glad you are happy, dragon-child. It has been long since such exuberance was witnessed in this glade.
Elucidas: But I fear I am about to dampen your emotions.
Elucidas: Before we can loose you on the world- before you can take on the Decadere...
Elucidas: ... You must prove to us that you can handle your powers with finesse and responsibilty.
Elucidas: We cannot have you go running off and taking on the powers of Creation... as a random example.
Nythera: I will NEVER live that down!
Nythera: I understand, Elucidas. But... how can I prove myself to you?
Nythera: I am me. I don't know how to be anyone else.
Elucidas: A man- or woman- shows their true mettle in battle. Their real personality and being come to the front.
Elucidas: So. We will test you in battle, and see what we shall see.
Elucidas: You will run a gauntlet of my best warriors, and finally... ME.
Elucidas: If you can defeat us with honor, then we will know that you are ready to take on anyone- or thing- that you might need to face.
Nythera: Use my new powers in battle? Let's GO!
Elucidas: You have done well, child. There is one more battle before you.
Elucidas: I won't be TOO hard on you, young one!
Nythera: And I'll show you that I shouldn't be underestimated!
Elucidas: Child, I have never been happier to lose a battle. You have done well.
Nythera: I- ... Thank you.
Nythera: It feels RIGHT to use my magic. I feel whole.
Elucidas: Yes, and I think you're ready to take on the Decadere.
Elucidas: We must leave that up to you; we cannot fight them ourselves.
Elucidas: If we turn on our brethren, misguided through they are, there will never be a reconciliation.
Elucidas: A dragon's pride would not allow it.
Elucidas: So you see, you are our only hope.
Nythera: I understand. I think... maybe... a lot of MY pride comes from my dragon-half.
Elucidas: *small smile* I wouldn't be at all surprised by that, child.
Elucidas: Then I think it is time you go.
Elucidas: You have shown that you can handle victory with grace.
Elucidas: I think you have grown much since we first met.
Elucidas: You are ready. Do what only YOU can do!
Elucidas: Find the Decadere, and convince them that they must return to us, that we must reunite for the good of our kind!
