*The young Caller Garn stepped outside of his house. It was a beautiful morning, too bad that their village almost never saw sunlight, because of the mist. But still, he could sense it was nice. A fresh wind caught his face, and he stared up into the grayness above him. Suddenly, he noticed the outline of a winged figure hurtle toward him. Garn stepped out of the way just in time to see Skyler tumble in front of him. Horrified, Garn ran into his house and notified his parents. His parents ran out to see Skyler passed out, but not injured. They suddenly realized what he was.*

"Garn, do you know what this is?! It's a Called Monster!"

"Wow! Really!?"

*Skyler's eyes awoke to see a boy with flaming red hair in a decorative black tunic.*

"W-who are you? Am I in the village of Mist?"

"Yes you are, Called Monster... how would you like to join me?"

*Garn's parents proudly smiled from behind.*

"What? Join you? Oh yes, you're a Caller. I'm sorry, I can't do that."

*Skyler turned his back and was about to leave to find the rest of the group, when Garn shouted,*

"STOP! I can't let you leave without a battle. If you win, I will let you go on your way. If I win... you join me."

*Skyler smirked at the spunky kid.*

"All right, Caller, you have a deal."

*Suddenly, from behind, three jet-propelled vehicles and a dragon appeared from behind...*

(OOC - Hmm. Seems that Rag was writing and meanwhile, Crysta posted... Let's go with Ragnarok's story. It's a little better, no offense...)

*Crysta steered Kiop downwards, zooming to catch the man on Kiop's back, and bring him to a safe landing, but not exactly make him... cozy. Kiop veered to a halt on the ground. The man in black jumped off and tried to run, but Ragnarok casted Silence on him to keep him from warping. He wouldn't be able to run far... so he gave up. He kept stationary as the others dismounted their vehicles/dragon. He was in a black cape and robes, with black scarves covering his face.*

"You little idiots..." he hissed. "What do you want from me?"

*Suddenly, he caught a glimpse of Crysta.*

"Y-YOU!"

Crysta stood guard. "I've come back for what is rightfully mine. Give us the magicite, or we take your lives."

"No, no, no... little Crysta... quite the contrary. I take your lives, and then take you as magicite!"

*He let out a hoarse laugh. The effects of Silence had worn out, but not enough that he could warp. He drew two long swords from two sheaths on his back. Crysta held her Crystal Staff, and Garn held his Sawblade Sword, held together in one piece by Excalibur's strong psychokinetic powers.*

"I am Sibelius, leader of the Empire's secret service, master of SwordTech and Magicks. You will regret trying to challenge me."

*With a stream of blue trailing from the swords, Sibelius ran to Crysta, about to perform a Cross-Slash.*

"Hold!"

*multicoloured rings appeared around Sibelius, and stopped him in his tracks.*

"My old magic! It worked. how?"

*Crysta was puzzles and then tried a few more.*

"Fire! Ice! Bolt!"

*All three spellls formed.*

"Oh wow! I finally got them back, but why?"

*Just then the hold spell wore off and Sibelius sliced Crysta in the Back.*

"Augh!"

*Crysta fell to the ground, bleeding from her back.*

"augh... help..."

*Excalibur goes over to Crysta and attempts to heal her wound...The others prepare to fight Sibelius.*

Sibelius casts a wall of fire around them...Ragnarok, being partially fire-typed, steps out unscathed. "You'll be the first to go!" Sibelius casts MP Buster on Ragnarok, draining him of all magic power, and since Ragnarok is an Esper, this causes him to fall to the ground.

Illumina notices this, and is greatly angered. "If you want to kill Ragnarok, you're going to have to kill me first!"

Sibelius prepares to slash Illumina, and aims for her midsection. Illumina encourages him to go ahead, knowing what will happen. He does, and the recoil from the blade hitting her midsection knocks the sword out of his hand. She then grabs him by the hand and throws him on his back, followed by her casting of a stronger level "Hold" to keep him still this time.

"Who regrets challenging who, now?" Illumina boasts.

*Excalibur has succeeded in healing Crysta's wound, and both go over to Sibelius. On the way over, Excalibur gives Ragnarok an X-Ether, and Ragnarok follows them.*

*Garn was enclosed in the fire sheild around him. He didn't know what to do. How could he get out of this? Then he remembered, he was a Caller!*

"Guardijeff!" (I decided to use a Wild ARMs GF instead of Shiva 'n' stuff... just for fun.)

*The ice monster landed on top of the fire barrier, and enclosed the fire with ice, creating an elemental reaction with a blast that harmed anyone standing within reasonable distance outside it. He didn't really care, though, the eager child wanted to take a big slice out of Sibelius. He raised his Sawblade Sword above his head, greating a great gash on the midsection of Sibelius's back. But he still hadn't recovered from hold.*

"Time for some fun."

*Being very childish, he decided to use his weak magic skills instead of his brute strength, and failed to greatly injure Sibelius. It did give Sibelius enough time to be released from his Hold, though.*

*Sibelius was about to slice Garn in half, when Ragnarok came running in and blocked the blow with his blue Ragnarok sword. A clash of metal erupted between the two, as Crysta, Illumina and Garn watched on. Sibelius and Ragnarok both knew that either one would not be harmed much by magic. Ragnarok was soon able to plant a large blow across Sibelius' chest.*

"ARRGH!" He yelled as he stooped down. "You insolent fools... you have no idea what you're meddling with..."

*Soon, Skyler caught up with the rest of the group and came to stand aside Ragnarok.*

"You did it, Ragnarok! You've killed this guy!"

"Not... yet..."

*Sibelius withdrew the Dark Magicite from a pocket in his black-as-night robe.*

"Spirits from within this Magicite... Abadus and Emana... I SUMMON YOU!"

*With that, Sibelius fell, the Magicite still in his grasp. The magicite began to radiate with intense energy, and the group was blown back from the force. Sibelius disappeared from sight, and in his place were two monstrous figures, floating in front of the group. Abadus had two horns on his head, a horrifying face, wings similar to Skyler's, and had an overall look of a demon. Emana had golden wings, and had pale blue skin. She, too, looked very hostile. Crysta walked up to Skyler.*

"Crysta... these are our parents... infested with evil, bent on destruction... do we have to kill them?"

*The others backed off, knowing that this was Skyler and Crysta's conflict. It was strange... the two figures did not attack... it even looked like they had a sense of reminiscence... Abadus spoke directly into Skyler and Crysta's minds.*

Children... Crysta... Ambrosia... we...

<Ambrosia? Is that... my real name?> Skyler thought.

You must... vanquish... our powers...

*They heard nothing more, as a faint glow surrounded Crysta and Skyler. Skyler's hair grew long and his chest grew muscular. His face became twisted into a snarl, and he roared an unmistakable sound of pain. Crysta, too, transformed. She sprouted golden wings, her purple robe was replaced with a long, flowing green cape and dress, and her hair grew as well.*

"They have transformed into their esper forms," Ragnarok said from behind. "They are getting ready for a brutal battle."

"Ka!"

*Crysta held out her hands and out shot a radiant beam of green. It struck Emana and a wisp of blue shot out of her mouth.*

"pag!"

*Skyler lunged at Abadus. He hit his chest with Great force and a wisp of red shot out of his mouth*

You are doing it.. You are destroying the evil. keep attacking!

"Bala Pim!"

*Crysta and Skyler did a twin move, which created a twister of flame, ice and lightning. It struck Emana and Abacus many times, and much more of the evil spirit left their bodies, but there had to be a center where the evil was coming from. They needed to destroy that if they were to save their parents.*

Oh. Our powers are fading. you must destroy the evil... please... help us.

*Skyler, or Ambrosia, heard his parents' voices... The only way they could vanquish the evil was by killing them. Or was it? He used his special attack, Electic Cyclone. A gust of wind circulated around the whole group, and lighning shot from Skyler's hands, engulfing his parents in electricity. They were then tossed and turned in the flying debris the cylone had created. This had almost finished them off. Abadus and Emana were not done yet. The remaining part of evil told them that their time had come... they had to use their esper attack... Twin Meteo.*

*Non-elemental energy rained down on Skyler and Crysta, sheer pain erupting from inside. Crysta was not badly hurt, though, she specialized in Forbidden Magic. But Skyler had taken its effects at full force. He fell to the ground, radiation coursing from his body. Abadus and Emana fell, too, their bodies turning to energy and forming one magicite.*

Crysta could once again gain control of her thoughts and screamed, "Dad! Mom! SKYLER!!"

*Not yet turning back to human form, she dropped to the ground and knelt near Skyler, immune to the effects of the radiation. Ragnarok, Illumina, Excalibur and Garn tried to come as close as they could.*

"Somebody," Crysta yelled out, coming fairly garbled though, "help Skyler..."

*Ragnarok, Excalibur, and even Garn tried their luck at reviving him with items and magic, but it was no use, it did not work. Crysta flung her arms around the bloody, pulsing beast, and started to cry. Was her brother... dead?*

*Before she could do anything, the radiation eminating from Skyler changed to a bright green. It engulfed him, and before the group's eyes, the light condensed into Magicite.*

Skyler was dead.

"No... boo hoo hoo..."

*Crysta gathered the magicite of Skyler and her parents and put them all in front of her. She changed back into her human form, and felt horrible, like it was all her fault. everything that had happened, was because if her, and she had to try and make it right agaitn.*

"Lunar *sniff* life!!"

*white lights gathered around the magicite, but nothing happened.*

"Blazing Life!!"

*She was trying all of the spells she had long ago, but nothiing worked, and then she saw it. The black magicite. It had formed after the battle, so she went to pick it up, but she was kept 10 feet away from it.*

"A forcefield.... Noo...."

*Crysta was scared, and mad! She needed the magicite!*

"AAARGH!!!"

*Crysta began to glow a strange greeny-blue, and then out of her outstreched arms, shot a dazzling beam of green, red, and every other colour imaginable. It struck the forcefield, and blew it up! the piece of magicite, fell over to where Skyler, Emana, and Abadus, and a ark glow engulfed the magicite shards...*

(OOC - Um, let's put it this way, shall we?

The Dark Magicite's gone. The parents were vanquished of their powers. Now we've got two Magicites, the one with Abadus and Emana, and one with Skyler. The action's gone, and the drama starts.)

IC

*The radiative glow had died down, and there were two lifeless magicites, on the ground, side by side. The evil had gone from their parents, but Skyler had died fighting. Crysta tried all of the spells she could to try to bring them back to life, but it was no use. They were magicite. They were dead. Garn ran up to where Crysta knelt, sobbing.*

"Oh man... and he was your brother...? That... that's..."

*He wanted to say that that sucked, but it really wasn't the occasion. Needless to say, the others ran up too. They all felt a sorrow that would not leave them for a long time, except for Garn. He had fought and killed many monsters in the past, and this was nothing different to him. He did feel a bit sorry for Crysta, though... he had never really felt sorry for an esper, before.*

"What do we do now?"

"Well," Excalibur replied softly, slowly, and regretfully, "we have ridden of the evil in your parents, Crysta... we can now make it up to the espers... maybe they have some method of bringing Skyler back to life..."

Garn did the only thing that seemed right. Smoothing back his unkept hair, he picked up the cold magicite containing Skyler. "In the meantime, I will take care of this magicite... it might even come in handy..."

*Nobody else seemed to object to this. Quietly and sadly, the group returned back to Windor.*

"I.... I can't believe this. This is all my fault! I shouldn't have been so selfish for my old powers and getting back! Is this why I'm here? To make my fellow espers and loved ones die? If it is, I dont want to live!"

*Crysta was so mad! She had killed her brother, and her parents! Her only family...*

"why? why did this happen? I'm not a bad person! Is god still punishing me for that time so many years ago? WHY?"

*The group sat around a table in the Tavern, and because of such emotional weight, people actually left them alone.*

"What happened to her?" Garn asked Illumina.

"Years ago, she was an elite soldier in the Empire. She was sent to retrieve the Dark Magicite, unbeknown to her that it contained her parents. She let them loose on the esper world, and they destroyed almost everything. Because of that, Crysta was banished from the esper world."

*A shiver ran up and down Garn's spine whenever she said "esper world." Could she be talking about the Land of the Called Monsters?*

*Excalibur and Ragnarok and tried to comfort her. It was not worth taking her own life, nothing was. But she had unwillingly committed so many crimes in the past... stealing and summoning her parents to wreak havoc... it was unforgivable. Or... was it?*

"Crysta..." Ragnarok said. "Do you remember what the Elders said? Only if you could repay what you did to them, they would forgive you... how about giving back to them two loved members of their society?"

"But how... would I do that? They're dead... I just can't do anything about it..."

"You've forgotten, Crysta. You have friends to help you. Your life is only incomplete without friends, and you have us. I will also be able to gather some of my friends to help you out, too... Excalibur, look up the locations of the wandering espers once again... they are going to help us forgive the esper world."

*Garn turned his head to Illumina.*

"W-we're going to go to the Land of the Called Monsters??"

***OOC--Technically, Skyler, Abadus, and Emana are NOT dead. But due to them being turned into Magicite, their HP and MP are bonded as one. This basically means that if either their energy or their magic is drained, they may die PERMANENTLY if not helped soon.***

***IC***
Ragnarok answers Garn. "As soon as we find these five of my kindred, yes. Then we will go to the Elders and ask them to forgive Crysta." Ragnarok turns to Excalibur, and asks which Esper is closest to their current location.

"The DLL's showing that ZoneSeek is closest to our current location...He's wandering around near Jidoor." Excalibur replies. "Also, I have just recalled a method to free Skyler, Emana, and Abadus from the shards of Magicite, but we'll need the help of Phoenix for that, and he seems to have locked himself away from all human contact in his mountain. We'll look for him last."

"Let's get going then!" Garn says. "To Jidoor!"

"And we have to hurry," Crysta added. "My relatives are going to die if we don't do anything soon."

*The group sped off on their modes of transportation. Garn gripped the magicite of Skyler.*

"Alright! Onward, to Jidoor!"

*They charged forward, and suddenly black storm clouds formed.*

"Uh oh! This isn't good! We could be held off hours! You can't ride those metal hoverbikes in a boltstorm!"

*A boly of lightning came down right in front of Kiop and he got shook up! He was getting afraid, and weaker.*

"We're gonna have to land! Kiop can't hold it, unless.... Quezacotl!"

*the lightning bird formed beside Kiop.*

"Alright! Jump!"

*Crysta, Garn and Illumina (I think...) Jumped over and landed on Quezacotl.*

"Alright! Rag, and Excalibur, catch!"

*Crysta threw pink materia and it created magic barriers around all of them.*

"Okay! Lets keep it up!"
Hotaru

Feb 7th 7:03 PM
A sudden flash of blue radiated outward slightly ahead of the group. It hollowed out, and a young looking boy looked out from the blot of magic. The lightning lanced around it, bouncing off the tough shield. The rain however, seemed to enter and become part of the shielding. Within the shielding was the Summon Hotaru, but he looked rather different. Along with his normal appearance, there was a pair of faint blue wings spread from his back to let him fly beside the thunder bird.

"Crysta!" Hotaru shouted, keeping at a high speed in order to keep up with Quetzecotl. The young summon spared a moment and waved to the GF, who happened to be a kind of teacher to him. "I-I heard what happened! I've come to help you.. I can't let a friend of mine go into a predicament like this alone!" With a slight gesture, blue shields appeared over the magic barriers, extra protection.

*Garn was surely having the time of his life. He was surrounded by Called Monsters. He was even flying on one. Feeling the static electricity flow through his body, he gestured a greeting to Hotaru.*

"Hello!" he called out, through the rain and wind. "Have you ever been to the land of Called Monsters?"

*Then, forgetting where ALL Called Monsters came from, he decided not to wait for a response to the last question. He was very confused as well.*

"I can't wait to get to the land of Called Monsters..." he thought out loud.

*In his childish mischeivousness, a greedy, sneaky thought ran through his mind. He could become very powerful with the help of espers... concentrate intense energy. Deep down inside, he didn't even think he needed the people who were guarding his very life.*

*Suddenly, down below, a faint robotic figure was spotted.*

"ZoneSeek!"
