Princess Cronus | Arc I

    It has been a while since that fateful day. The fateful day where the two met.

    "That nightmare again..."

    The little lady who went by Saturn rose from her bed, looking about before unleashing a great yawn, a sign that she had discarded her slumber for the physical world.

    "What's a Cronus... and... ah, I forgot the rest."

    After the regular brushing of the teeth, she enters the kitchen, looking for someone.

    "Hibiki... Hibiki... are you there, Hibiki?"




    The brood of Typhon, currently just three, sit and commune like family. It was just siblings, for their parents were dormant, somewhere, but where, precisely? No one truly knows.

    "I can't believe school's starting in a few days. I'll have less time to observe the constellations at night!" Chimera says at the table with her siblings as all had breakfast. "I take it that you're not attending school, big bro? I mean, you're pretty over the high school age in terms of appearance. Maybe barely the last year. Mmm... a last year transfer student seems a bit strange, but not unrealistic."

    "Chimera," Chimera's sister, Hydra asks, "why are you even observing constellations?"

    "Well, in legends, some of us would be slapped onto the sky to immortalize our image. Those are constellations," Chimera explains, "Canis Minor & Leo have vanished from the sky completely. Those are the constellations that correspond to a couple of our siblings."

    "Chimera, let's just eat our breakfast for now. We can discuss this later, alright?"

    "Alright, sister..."

    Thelxiepeia tried to make her yawn graceful as she woke up from her slumber. Wasn't it yesterday just a few minutes ago? She never could understand how humans could do so much in less then a century, while creatures like her lolled about for a good few years. Anyways, where to go again? She appreciated some breakfast, even if a soggy but fresh corpse did just appear last night.

    The siren resided in a little islet just off side of the mainland, so small it could have been a rock if not for a large patch of grass. Despite her legs hampering her, Thelxie has learnt to briefly swim. Taking a deep breath, she ran across the water and then dogpaddled to the local village. She wasn't drowning today.

    So where to go? Apparently, she was in this island called...Japan? Whatever, it wasn't Greece so it wasn't as good. But something that did interest her was the southern part of the village. The ruins looked awfully familiar...

    Well, the siren found her destination for today.

    She didn't need food so soon after having a meal. Besides, she prefered not to eat people she knew even as an acquaintance. Just kept her prey as blurred-faced faces stupid enough to be eaten.

    Oh, she was already there! Well, time to look around. Maybe she'll find something that she'll remember or keep as a decoration.

    Cyrus remained fairly quiet at the table, choosing to instead focus on eating. It was relaxing eating with his siblings like a family. At Chimera's question, Cyrus grinned. "The idea of school seems rather dull to me. But I want to be able to relate to you guys a bit more, so I'm giving it a chance. If it bores me, well then I'll simply drop out." Chimera was always eager to learn, something Cyrus found endearing. His little sister never failed to amuse him.

    He listened to Chimera bringing up the constellations. The idea of finding more of his siblings intrigued him. When Hydra cut off their sister, Cyrus raised a brow and looked at her.
    "We're not in that big of a rush, why shouldn't she discuss it now? Between waiting for our parents to wake up and waiting for the school bus, I'll take anything to kill the time." Speaking of his parents, Cyrus was unsure how to feel about them.

    Hibiki had found himself out of bed earlier than usual this morning. There was something in the air that was making him uncomfortable and disrupting his sleep. Shaking off the grog of the early morning, he soon found himself in the kitchen preparing omelets for Saturn and himself. It was strange to be making breakfast for a guest, let alone a cute girl. The same cute girl that had fallen from the sky directly into his arms and made herself at home with him. As if summoned by thought alone he heard Saturn calling out to him.

    "I'm in the kitchen." A simple response to a simple question. Hibiki leaving the odor of cooking food to say the rest.

    It was another ordinary day, among others. Alessana Krevos woke up from a tiring sleep, her gray blue eyes fluttering open. She took in the sounds of birds chirping from outside of the window, and the sight of the usual bedroom that she would always wake up on. The young girl stretched her arms, yawning to signal the start of a new day for her.

    ...It's been so long...

    Alice smiled. She remembered being adopted by the kind rich couple that had become her parents; she had become the daughter that they always wished for. Alessana stood up from her bed and walked out of the room. Wait, wasn't there something she should be doing right now?

    ...Wait! That's right!

    The black-haired girl ran back into her room and grabbed her bathrobe. She and her parents were going to Japan, of all places! Of course! How can I forget?! Rushing inside the bathroom, she hastily turned the shower faucet on and let the raindrops of water do the rest.

    A few minutes pass by, and she is finally done. Wearing a simple black dress with white trims on the sides and as puffs, she rushed down the stairs and towards the kitchen with a smile on her face. Her father and mother turned to her once she had arrived.

    "Good morning, mom, good morning dad." Alice greeted as she rushed over to kiss her parents' cheeks. Both adults chuckled at this. "Good morning, Alice." Her mother greeted her back, making her smile. Only hearing her mother's and father's voices in an early morning made her smile.

    "So, Alice," Her father began, with Alice quickly rushing up to the table and turning to her father intently. "Are you excited to go to Japan? We'd be staying there for a year for a short trip." He stated, with Alice nodding. "That is, unless you want an extend." He added with a wink.

    Alice looked up to her parents with a smile. "Haha. We'll see, daddy." She simply stated with that same small smile on her face.

    --

    Cole was just sitting there, eating his breakfast at the table while simply listening to Chimera and Hydra talk about constellations, and Cyrus saying that school was rather dull. The former dragon looked at each of his siblings and smiled. At least they were all safe for now.

    Then Cyrus argued about letting Chimera continue, and he could only nod in agreement. Something about what Chimera was saying interested him, to the point that he wanted to ask. But he wasn't in the mood right now... he was just hungry, is all.

    Taking a spoonful of food to his mouth, he turned to the others to see if they had anything else to say.

    As usual heavy boot served to herald Scylla's entrance. She quickly rummaged through the kitchen, grabbing a pair of eggs and stuffing a muffin into her mouth before joining her siblings at the table. While devouring the muffin with one hand she used the other to crack the eggs and add their contents to her bowl of rice and fish. Having finished her muffin she transitioned without breath to shoveling the contents of her bowl into her mouth without even a moment to breath. After washing down her meal with a glass of milk she finally joined the conversation.

    "Oh, I think it'll be great for Cyrus to be out and about for a bit." She paused to grab a few grains of rice off her face and shirt and toss them in her mouth. "It'll be a blast. We get to be young troublemakers all over again!" She punctuated her sentence by leaning back and throwing her feet onto the table next to her empty bowl. "Oh, I guess Colki here might not quite make the cut though. You might have to miss out on all the high school high jinks."

    ((Sorry it took me so long to get this out. I'm in like four other RPs irl plus work so finding time is always a killer. But found the time, the music, and the face claim and I'm ready to go.)

    Birds chirping was often seen as one of the most beautiful things the world had to offer. To wake up and see the animals soaring through the air as if they had no cares in the world was a thing to behold. At least that's what Kardia took from the sight. Mere mortals were not born with the luxury of being able to escape their problems in the same manner as birds and although the same could not be said for him? He still felt a pang of jealously run through his veins. The bird had only two concerns


    To find a mate and to find nourishment.

    Nothing else mattered in the slightest. Rising to his feet, Kardia held his left hand aloft with his index finger held out. As he began to whistle, a small bird took upon the unstated invitation and landed upon the finger. Reaching into his pocket with his free hand, Kardia pulled out a bit of bird seed which the avian happily began to peck away at and eat at it's leisure. Once the bird had it's fill, it'd turned and flew away ready to continue it's life. Cracking something of a faint smile at the sight, it vanished just as quickly as Kardia looked down at his watch.

    "I must be going. Goodbye, little one."


    He'd set a designated period for him to relax and enjoy nature. That narrow window had closed and now it was time to move on for the day. Letting his jacket loosely slip from his shoulders, Kardia held it under his left arm and made his way off from the field he'd been sitting in. Leaving his scarred arms exposed for the world to see, not that he cared. They could see and think what they would, he couldn't stop them. He knew exactly why they were scattered along his arms and the rest of his body and that was good enough for him.

    [​IMG]

    "...Something feels different about today."

    When he usually went on these walks, if he ran into others, they paid him no mind or stared in awe or disgust at the scars dug into his flesh like craters on the moon. He didn't ignore them or stay quiet entirely out of rudeness but simply because nobody he passed by interested him enough to say anything. But it felt like that mold would break today, now if only he knew why.

    Noel wore a cyan tracksuit as he jogged on the sidewalks, carrying a couple water bottles in his bag. He liked to get the exercise, but today... today was different. He had an objective given to him, and he needed to clear his mind. Saturn or Cronus, was it? Very strange names. I'll be sure to keep my eye out for anyone who doesn't seem natural-
    His train of thoughts was stopped suddenly when he saw a blonde boy with spiky hair, which could've shown he was some type of rebel... but then Noel saw them. All of them. The scars. Scars of Cronus, I presume. I can see why he'd find such a rebellious and physically adequate body. I won't let him go without interrogation... this is my chance to end the problem before it begins.
    Noel walked to the boy with a stoic expression and good posture, making sure that he wasn't threatening, but sent out a "you don't want to mess with me" vibe. "Konnichiwa, sir. How are you doing on this fine day?"

    Thelxiepeia looked like a scavenger, trying to find bits and pieces of things she might remotely enjoy. The ruins were truly in ruins, nothing that was of importance was to be found. Well, as far as waking up in the morning and still being drowsy levels of searching went.

    And then she saw what was a jackpot as far as scavengers went. Two men talking to each other. Possible breakfast, possible source of ego-boosting? Doesn't matter, The Siren loved attention of any kind as long as it wasn't bad. Besides, why would they come here? The Siren walked foward, her unnatural beauty clearly showing as well as her old greek accent.

    "Ko..nicciwa? Is this of the tongue that the village speaks? So, what brings thee here to these ruins? Surely such two healthy men have other things to attend to."
    She did take note Kardia's scars, and Noel's vibe. Guess one of her intentions were ruled out.

    Watching as somebody approached, Kardia reached for the jacket he'd set aside and slipped it back on over his shoulders. He personally didn't care what people thought of his scars. Whether they believed them to be self-afflicted and he was a man consumed by conflict, or that he'd seen many great battles in his life. With free will came free thoughts and as such, he couldn't control what people thought or believed. So why bother getting mad about it?

    Still, if he had to be honest?

    He much preferred the company of nature and it's many animals to that of humanity. So as Noel approached him, Kardia's body remained tensed up and his posture didn't relax in the slightest to show that he was at even the slightest indication of ease. "Konnichiwa. The day goes well. I finished feeding the local birds for one." Every day, every same hour, he would come out to the fields and beckon the birds to him and nourish them as best as he could. Nature was a cruel mistress after all and you couldn't always expect to get a meal. Which is why he sought to help as much as he could. Losing one's life without reason or any way to prevent it was a miserable fate.

    "How does the day bode for you?" He asked, his eyes already scanning past Noel to see if any others would be approaching him on this fine day.

    "I like coming here for some level of seclusion. My days off from my job allow me to go about my business as I please. I use such free time to treat the local wildlife as kindly as I do as I would when I work." As a groundskeeper, Kardia indeed spent most of his time outside. Most of those at the school assumed him odd or something of a loner. Not that they'd ever feel brave enough to say such to his face. Who would say whatever was on their mind to someone who looked like he did??

    "I...don't believe I recognize your face. Who might you be? I am Kardia."

    Ah! That's strange, while Thelxiepeia knew that she wasn't acting particularly enchanting, she knew that for some low-willed imbeciles, that even her looks captured their gaze. It seems that this man wasn't like those people, and those scars can attest to that. The bold siren didn't see Kardia often, due to her not associating with the school, and the few time she did, he was walkng off to some far off outback. She didn't particularly understand why he would take care of wildlife though. Wildlife were tools at best for her.

    "Kardia, peculiar name. I have a better one, Thelxiepeia. It would strange if thou saw me often. For I am one who resides on the smaller islets off the village, by myself. I do come here to visit, however."

    She quietly checked her dress, to make sure her inhuman bird-legs were not visable.

    "Ah, Kardia. Nice to make your acquaintance - I'm doing well. Do you happen to know anyone named Cronus or Saturn? Just curious," asked Noel, ignoring the other woman. He didn't have time for a flirt, and he needed to focus, so he didn't even pay a glance to her.

    That was certainly...a name.

    Still, it wasn't as if he was a snob or anything. The woman seemed proud of her name and who would he be to deny her a right to bask in that feeling? Flashing a small smile in her direction, Kardia nodded. "Indeed, I'd agree that it's a superior name. It's quite nice and rolls off the tongue very well." The use of 'thou' however made his smirk last a little longer however. He didn't talk much when he worked but often times children from the school would approach him and ask him why he took up a job that involved such solitude, he'd use thou and thee and the like in his responses. Or at least he had until the children explained how antiquated such choice of words were.

    'Haha, what are you an old man or something, Mr. K?"

    But although he'd found some meager way to amuse himself, the smile wouldn't last for long as Noel's next question reached his ears. Kardia's gaze hardened and he slowly began to raise his left hand. The gesture seemed innocuous at first but as Kardia's hand reached his face, he'd scratch his forehead and if Noel paid attention, he'd see a trail of electricity running down that finger and spreading across Kardia's hand.

    His gaze didn't break from Noel however and it seemed the other Chosen had his full attention. Was this man going to potentially be a problem? If so it might not do to let him leave here. But if they fought then they ran the risk of demolishing this beautiful area and that simply wouldn't do, decisions decisions...

    "...Let's run with the idea that I do. What would it matter to you?"

    Electricity? He's a chosen of Zeus, thought Noel, smiling at him. "Oh, it's really nothing," Noel said, setting water dance around his fingers to show that he was a chosen as well. "I was just looking for a friend of mine, and I was curious if you happened to know them." Noel couldn't give up his identity - this woman didn't seem like she would take the news very well, especially for a modern citizen. However... if Kardia was a chosen, then it was best to signify that they were allies.

    "I really like this town's overall laid-back feeling, if you understand what I mean," said Noel. He had to show to this woman he was just a Japanese teenager. "We have good schools, good neighborhoods... I'm happy I was born here, heh!" Noel gave a fake but genuine-looking smile to Kardia.

    So someone appreciated it, finally! Thelxiepeia always liked her name, far more meaningful, far more superior then what they name their children nowadays. Like seriously, Daisy? Nana? But she did have a feeling that the man was sarcastic when he said that her name was superior...after all, no one she knew would ever say such a compliment. Granted, all the other people she met were her equally-arrogant sisters and idiotic victims...

    While the two chosens were talking, Thelxiepeia felt left out, which was freaking stupid, she was a beautiful, skilled woman! All eyes should be on her! (Well, most eyes). But she was fine with just lingering around them for now, getting information, feeling even just a bit less alone. Besides, the conversation was getting interesting, and so did a strange phenomenon. Thelxiepeia gave a strange stare at both of them, Kardia for his some sort of electricity power, and Noel for his statement.

    First, this may be that she wasn't particularly interested in the village, but Noel might be just a bit optimistic. Laid-back wasn't a positive trait in her books, and as far as she saw, the village was utterly inferior to Ancient Greece. Seriously, why does everything modern have to be so stale and inferior?

    But her main bone to pick was with Kardia. Kardia shouldn't have any powers, much less the power of lightning. The siren knew many people/victims, and in her nearly thousand years of existence, she has never seen a person with genuine supernatural abilities. And wasn't lightning and all a notable gimmick of Zeus? Kardia was more then he seemed, and Thelxiepeia was intrigued by this man. She had to listen and learn more.

    Alessana and her family had finally arrived, their car bumping down the road while they were travelling. It was fun, getting to see new places and even getting to greet some people while they stopped, but it made her sleepy. So, after five hours of observing the scenery, she dozed off in the car and into a deep sleep.

    Five hours after that, she woke up and found themselves stopping in front of a huge mansion, the place she and her parents were going to stay at. It was big enough for the family and the servants to all fit in, and much beautiful than their primary residence, in fact. The family decided to settle in and prepare their things for their stay here for one month. Alessana was excited than never before.

    Another six hours passed by, and Alice was getting tired of waiting around. "Dad, mom, I'm going to take a walk around!" She shouted off to her parents, not waiting for a response before going out of the door. The sun was high and the sky was blue, the air fresh and clean. Alice couldn't wait to finally get to know more people here.

    It was only after a few minutes of walking that she saw three much older people conversing about some matters she didn't know. Figuring that this was the right moment to meet new people, she heaved a deep breath and stepped up to them with a small smile on her face.

    "Good morning." She calmly greeted, smiling at the three. "What might you people be talking about in such a wonderful day?"

    "It is a nice place."

    Lowering his finger and letting the electricity dissipate from the tip of his finger, Kardia let his hands rest idly within the pockets of his jeans. He was glad that a fight didn't need to break out here. He might not have known the other two gathered here but that didn't mean they deserved to be embroiled in a fight neither of them understood. Plus, it'd break his heart if the surroundings were mangled in any ensuing brawl. Noting however how miniscule his replies seemed to be, he supposed some kind of apology was in order.

    "...My apologies for the curt replies. Holding conversations isn't a particular strong suit of mine."

    In truth, the only things he really excelled at were fighting and gardening of all things. What had originally started off as a mere attempt to help blend in better and give him an outlet to further explore his powers away from prying eyes had grown on him. He loved the animals that sometimes flocked to him, he enjoyed feeding them and so on. That's why he would have excused himself from the conversation had another person not stepped in. To do so now would seem rude and he was anything but that.

    Something about this person felt...pleasant to Kardia. Perhaps it was all the time he spent by himself that got him thinking over whether or not he preferred the company of animals to his own kind but this girl didn't seem like she had a mean bone in her body. It was just a hunch but for what it was worth, Kardia usually believed they'd turn out right, for the most part anyway.

    "I'd been basking in my day off before I was approached. I am Kardia, it is a pleasure."

    Gah, more people. Was this weirdo central or something? And what was worse? It was a woman, not just a stupid man, but a dangerous one who could be immune to the Siren's song. She had to hold back to make sure she didn't hiss at her or something, she couldn't hold back a glare, however. At the village, most people usually didn't talk to her unless she did so first, so this was new, in a bad sense.

    "Why do you want to know?"

    Thelxiepeia honestly had trouble being as polite as she could, since even that was laced with passive-aggressiveness. Who was this strange girl, who came to such a quiet place? Kardia had some kind of electrical power, and Noel seemed normal, although there's something about him that didn't click for her. She was obviously a different race. So who was this wench?

    "Wonderful day...nonsense. The weather here is too cold. I'm Thelxiepeia. Thou are?"
