Since the beginning of the world, there existed the Four Courts of Time. There was the Goddess of Day, The God of Night, and the twins; Dusk and Dawn. Each God ruled over his of her separate part of the day and during the time of the Eclipse, where all of them existed at once, they would have Councils to discuss the progress of the world. Though, as time went on, Day and Night started to have arguments over who should truly be the ruler of the world. Every council developed into a full blown debate over the issue until the twins finally got fed up with it. Combining their powers the two cast Night and Day down to earth in forms stripped of their mighty powers.
During their endless life on earth, the two built up separate kingdoms. Day built up her sanctuary in the oasis of the desert. Night built his is the darkness of the forests. The two kingdoms bordered each other and were populated with different clans descendent from the two Gods.
For many centuries, the two kingdoms have been at war trying to regain their former power and destroy the other.
You decide if the battle ends in peace or bloodshed.

The sun peeked up over the rolling hills of sand. Saya, an Ancient of the Twilight Clan, had already been up and packed for her daily patrols of the lands. According to her information, the kingdoms were having a meeting with the ancients of their respected clans. The two night clans were meeting and the two day clans were meeting. As of now, if one had not noticed, Saya is in the Day Kingdom. It's up to her to be the mediator, more so with the Day clan leaders than anything else. "Those two are like little children." She said to herself with a sigh recalling past events between the two Day Kingdom leaders.
After walking for a few hours, Saya reached Gin's clan. This was the meeting place decided for the meeting. The council room was at the moment empty except for herself and the table that lay before her in the center of the room. She took a seat and waited for the others to arrive. As she waited, she stretched out her arms across the table and laid her head face down. "Ugh, please don't let this be another boring discussion of their clans." She wished aloud with a muffled tone due to the table in her way.
Location: Gin's Clan where the sun clans decided to meet. Thoughts: Please don't be boring. Company: Herself until the leaders arrive.
╔═══════════════════════════════════╗ Company:Just myself Location:Secret Clearing Thoughts:I can work on my abilities in peace.
"Why can't I get this right?"
Aria poked her head out the slightly opened door of her house, at this moment, seeing no one. A sigh of relief escaped her lips and she pushed the door open further. There was a meeting today between the two night clans and many of the people wanted to accompany the Ancients to their meeting. This simply meant that no one in her village would likely notice her sneaking into her favorite part of the woods.
This shy novice page wasn't remotely skilled in her trainings. The teachers simply brush her off as a waste of time and dedicate their teaching time to the other more advanced pages. Though, because they wouldn't teach her, Aria would often escape into the woods and work on her abilities on her own. It was a quiet peaceful place to go. Most of the woods were surrounded in shadow but this particular spot that Aria had found so long ago was a rare clearing in the forest. The sun would beam down and the rays of light seemed to dance with the butterflies that flew around.
Just thinking of her special hid out made Aria smile a quicken her pace to get there. She loved the solitude. Her clan never treated her as an equal, more like a servant. Getting away from them when she could was a blessing. Not all of her clan is this way, her parents are kind and there are some who stand up for her but simply tell her to grow a backbone. She tries her hardest to get stronger in many ways but she has yet to figure out how to be tough.
Where: At the guild headquarters. With: Myself, waiting for Sinoct Ancient. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
~Ale was sitting at a huge round table. Like King Arthur, Ale did not believe in one man being above another. Today he was to meet with the other Ancient of his kingdom, the Ancient of the Sinoct clan. Ale was not sure if Exile agrees or not, but had sent word asking for Exile to meet here at the Lunara clan either way. He knew he was prepared well ahead of time, for Exile still had a huge window to show up and discuss the matters at hand. Either way, he hoped they would get to talk soon.
~Ale sighed to himself, and called a servant in. He asked for a large goblet filled with the sweetest mead. Today was already stressing him out, and nobody had even arrived yet. Ale was hoping to discuss whether or not to try sending a diplomat to the sun kingdom, to see if maybe they would agree to settle on a truce. So long as the sun kingdom recognized the night kingdom as the greater military force. A request like this could so easily lead to bloodshed, and Ale knew it from experience, but there was no choice.
~It has been a short while since the last battle with the sun kingdom, and Ale was tired of living in fear, constantly expecting to receive word from the spies that the sun kingdom was preparing to attack once again. Whether the request lead to peace or violence, it did not matter. Ale was tired of time sitting at a standstill.
Kin wandered the halls of Gin's clan-hall with disinterest and a bored look. She'd arrived last night and was already itching to leave. The talks did nothing to address the problems that were the clans of Sinoct and Lunara. Plagues on this world, beasts that couldn't be reasoned with. Or, perhaps they could. But it would be far easier to just wipe them out. All talk of envoys and peace bored and angered her. But, considering her position, she supposed she was...obligated to still attend the wastes of time that were these meetings. If only to make a nuisance of herself.
Kin would much rather be out, patrolling along the border between the kingdoms, looking for a viable route through the woods. Or at the very least, going over information that was already at her disposal and planning a trip there. Both better uses of her time. But, she was here. A soft sigh escaped her lips as she slipped into the meeting room. Besides herself, and another woman, it seemed as though there was no one there just yet. Kin wrote off the woman's presence rather quickly, as the girl did not ring any immediate bells. At least, not enough to distract her from her rather pleasant daydreams. Instead of acknowledging the other woman, Kin simply sat at the table to wait and scheme quietly.
"Your very existence is nothing more than a nuisance."
Shortly after the two women were settled in the meeting room, the doors swung open. Walking in with one hand on the hilt of his sword and an expressionless face, was the Ancient of the Solmar Clan, Gin. He approached the table in which the two were sitting and sat himself down without a word. Seeing that one of the girls, Saya, was unaware of his presence he subtly kicked the bottom of the table. The loud bang should bring her up from her current position.
Casually clearing his throat, Gin began to talk. "Thank you both for coming. I'm sure there are other things you had wished to do today besides come to a meeting. For starters, is there anything you would like to address Kin?" He asked shifting his attention from both Ancients to Kin. He didn't necessarily address Saya, seeing she was only there as a watchdog. Lacing his fingers together, with his elbows on the table and resting his chin on the newly formed fist, Gin waited for a response from his guest.
Șilent tension was high at the entrance to the structure that held the counsel between the two Sun clans. Two guards were stationed outside to keep an eye on the lone knight from the Novaris clan. Even if they were allies against the night clans, it was always wise to keep the smallest amount of soldiers of a foreign kingdom away from their Ancients. Solmar's people were wise.
Having been instructed by Kin to wait outside of the building, Inecer awaited the return arrival of the woman that he had been molded to protect. Yet, here he stood with the longbow of his in a erect position in the ground, underneath his swift hands.
The guards both had their eyes on the unmoving figure who dressed in such dark attire for a day clan member. Novaris had only two or three other soldiers like Inecer who weren't subjected to the lighter color required by law in the army that had been built. And, like this man, they were archers of unique skill and design. But due to prior agreements, the knight was ordered to accompany the Ancient to the counsel and ensure that no potential harm is brought upon her body if she is unable to defend herself in a situation. Gratefully, the man took the task without question.
On of Solmar's knights looked sideways, correcting themselves when they noticed that they were leaning to see if they could examine Inecer's face. The large purple hood he wore secured several promises for him. One was to keep out any excess light that could blind him in battle. Two fell under his, keep my identity a secret, section where when the armor wasn't worn, his face would still be unknown. And the last was to hide the fact that he was using a power only accustomed to his bloodline type.
One glowing blue slot, the right to be exact, was the clear cut sign of his pact with a winged animal was being used. Such a bird was sitting on the windowsill of one of the counsel room's many openings to allow natural light in. A cocked head twitched only once every few minutes that went by, keeping the appearance that the creature was simply just perched on the sandstone to rest its hollow bones. Kin would know exactly why it would be there for the remainder of the meeting until she exited the room.
Inecer's body outside of the mind of nature's common creature was still nailed in place, no muscle shifting, no sign of life besides the small glimpse of his chest rising an falling in even breathes. Solmar's knights had no need to fear this version of the archer.
"What do I care of this meeting?" Malachi prowled the forests, bored and looking for something fun to hunt. The fact alone that his ancient would even consider meeting with the sun clans annoyed him. There was no battle to be won with words but only through fighting. He spotted movement. There was a girl moving with purpose. She had long black hair and white and blue colored clothing. She looked weak to him, but one should never underestimate their target. He hid to the shadows and followed until she lead him to a clearing.
A smile crossed his face, maybe this one could prove some form of fun, to aid this slow day. He had his fill of following, now was time to act."Well you're a long way from home little one, tell me what are you doing here?"
╔═══════════════════════════════════╗ Company:Stranger (Malachi) Location:Secret Clearing Thoughts:What do i do?
"Why can't I get this right?"
Aria hadn't been at her secret spot for long before she heard a voice come from behind her. She quickly spun around to see who the voice belonged to. Before her was a young man with long black hair, almost as long as hers. Snapping back to it recalling his question, Aria became very nervous. She wasn't doing anything wrong was she?
"T-This is a place I come to... to practice." She said looking at the ground with a quiet voice. Making eye contact would be to much for this shy and nervous child. The man was wearing clothing that seemed similar to the other night clan's but even if he was from the same kingdom, Aria didn't know if he would be like the others in her clan. "S-sorry for coming. I'll leave right away." She didn't know if this man also wanted to use the clearing for personal purposes or what but she didn't want conflict. Aria quickly turned to leave but tripped over her own feet and fell on her face. This was usual for the girl but she was still embarrassed by the event.
Kaze flew high above the building that was the clan-hall of Solmar."Why do I get stuck with this again? Oh that's right, my overly business minded commander didn't appreciate me flirting with the other guards. Dammit All! I was about to use my best lines on one of them." he huffed. He was glad he was up there, though. He wanted as little to do with this stupid war as possible. Even if this supposed meeting of the two countries was getting the war closer to a close. It just wasn't going to end well. Especially with Kin in charge. "All she wants is violence. What is it with her anyways? I don't mind fighting, but I don't want to kill others for the hell of it... I wonder how many pages she's killed now." He mused.
The angel stopped his complaining when he saw something that confused him: a bird--head cocked--sitting on the sill of the window to the room where Kin and Gin were meeting. "What are you doing Inecer? I swear if that's you... I'll be so annoyed. Why are you making my job so much more difficult." He said to himself.
He folded his wings in and dived. Then at the last second he opened his wings. He landed safely on the ground close to where Inecer was supposed to be being kept. He tread into the room, jokingly slapped one of the guards asses and looked at Inecer. "Are you two idiots? Inecer isn't in his body right now! Have you seen him move?"
"Ka...Kaze?" The Guard on Kaze's left stammered. It would've been cute if Kaze wasn't so furious. "Dammit, Gin'll have your arse for this. You know how he gets!"
"P...Puh...Please! Don't tell him. I'll...even...g...gi...give you my body tonight. Have y...yo...your way with it. Just don't tell Gin." "No need for that," then to the statuesque body of Inecer,"Inecer get your a** back in that handsome bod of yours! I need to talk to you. Besides, You and I know damn well that Kin and Gin can defend themselves."
The man simply laughed at her embarrassment. 'He is just like the others.' She said quietly to herself as she stood up and brushed the dirt off her clothes. Then the stranger drew his sword with a request for a fight. A look of uncertainty came across Aria's face. "B-but Mr. Knight, I'm not built for fighting. I don't even have a weapon. I'm just..." She paused for a moment as her eyes shifted downward again. She recalled a few words that the others of her clan said about her, then she continued. "I'm just a Page that will be killed in the first battle I encounter." That's what some have said about her, she knew it was true as well. Aria couldn't control her powers over earth just yet and if you looked at her, you could tell she could barely take a hit right now. She feared a fight, she didn't wish to die that kind of death. What honor was in dying without having the ability to fight for your life?
Aria looked back up at the man. "Besides, you wouldn't want me as a fighting partner. It would be over too quickly for you and you would get no benefit from it." She said with a sad smile. She hated admitting out loud what others thought of her. The Page watched the man, waiting for a response or gesture allowing her to either leave or not fight this man.
