[The daylight is bright...]
...
[Glitra is awaken by the rays of the sunlight penetrating her window. Her eyes open very slowly, adapting to the light.]
...
[She sits up, her tail in front of her. Glitra keeps her eyes half open, still trying to wake up.]
Glitra: [She yawns, covering her mouth with both hands.] Ahhh, gosh... [Given time to wake up, she feels she has enough energy to float, which she does. The first thing on her mind is to fix her hair, let alone her bed. Without the need to even wet it, she takes a brush on a counter near her mirror and gently runs through it a few times, straightening it out before grabbing a hair tie and fixing it into a long ponytail. The second thing on her mind is to brush her teeth. She wanders out of her room, but before heading into the bathroom, Glitra notices that the house is awkwardly empty. She hovers in the center of the living room.] ...? [She looks from side to side.] Anyone, um... home? Hello?! [She calls out.] ... Braig...? Braig! ...
...
[With no response, Glitra becomes worried. She rushes outside, instantly coming to the conclusion that her brother had not returned. Little does she know that her conclusion is correct.]
Glitra: This isn't happening... h-he... [She shakes her head.] No! He would never let himself be... [She notices the mailbox in front of her house... then floats to it rather nervously. She opens it, revealing a single letter, which she takes out and opens. Inside this letter is a piece of paper very similar to the one Braig was reading the previous night. It, too, possesses a list of jobs. Glitra scrolls slowly through the jobs until she spots one that steals her breath...]

"Anyone... ..I've come across... a creature of our past...
...
Somebody... stole my job... then...
...
Please... help... please..."
Client: Braig Synder
Location: Eastern Edge Promontory
Reward: ???

Glitra: [She begins to feel faint, though she tries to resist it. She hesitates...] B-Braig... [She closes her eyes, grasping the paper tighter until her hands glow a pinkish color. The section where Braig's request is listed becomes this color as well. Gitra opens her eyes, looking out to the town.] ...Hold on, Brother... [She dashes out, only one thing on her mind now...]
...
-Ebon Heights.-

...
[Townsfolk are about their casual business this day. However, the moment Glitra is seen flying by, attempts of greeting are made. With no response from her, they immediately know trouble is afoot. A few of Glitra's friends, including the Azoo brothers, call her name. She does not stop for them. She does not even look back. She simply continues ahead. Her destination is unfortunately not the Eastern Edge at this moment...]
Glitra: (Please, Braig, hang in there... If I didn't have to go to that guild place, I would so just... ...just hang on!) [She works her way to a large hill in the center of the town. The hill leads to the Skyscraper. At the top of this hill is an entryway into the pillar. Arches line the ramp to the entrance. Glitra pays all the designs no attention and hurries her way into the guild.]
...
-En's Guild of Elements.-

...
[Inside, many teams of all sorts of different leagues are looking up jobs in this huge central room. Glitra recognizes some of the faces. She knows them only through Braig. She quickly scans around for a sign-up counter. As she spots one in the far left hand side of the central lobby, she hurries to it, others beginning to sense her tension. She places the paper on the counter quickly.]
Glitra: Excuse me, Mr.? I have to take this mission! It's urgent!
[The one behind the counter is actually rarely seen working in the lobby. He is a former apprentice of the guild, though remains here as the guildmaster's assistant. He is a rare individual to nearly master the Element of Darkness and not have let it consume him. His Base Primitive is extremely difficult to distinguish; a rabbit. His appearance is rather dark, with two strands of dark indigo hair running down his face. He possesses two wing-like shapes on his shoulders. To prove his league with the guild, there are peculiar markings under his eyes...]

Aphotos: My goodness, quite hasty, aren't we? Why, aren't you Braig's little sister? [As he asks this, he takes a look at the paper Glitra brought.]
Glitra: Y-yes... I'm Glitra Synder. Look, I know I'm not a valid--
Aphotos: [Interrupts.] I do apologize, but your Aurax seems to show that you are not a certified Veilwalker...
Glitra: I-I know... but this is important! Braig's in trouble! No one else took this missionn--I-I... I have to help him!
[She begins attracting attention from the other Veilwalker teams]
Aphotos: Braig is in trouble...? Hm... I am truly sorry... Though I have authority here, I lack the authority to give you the "okay" for this mission. That would be Guildmaster En's position.
Glitra: P-please, Mr. Aphotos... I have to hurry!
Aphotos: I am telling you, I cannot give you this mission! You would be endangering yourself... you are not certified for this kind of work alone!
???: Aphotos? [He seems to have come from the upper level of the guild.]
...
[The two turn to this boy. A few of the Veilwalkers turn to him as well. He is one of the apprentices at the guild. His looks are strikingly innocent, as his Base Primitive is an arctic fox. His fur is light gray, with speckles of light blue like tiny stars hidden in the coat. His ears are like crystals of ice, as is the color of his three hair strands. Around his waist is a small baggage.]

Aphotos: Floe? Why are you down here? I do not recall giving you a Veil Plain assignment today.
Floe: Well, um... I couldn't get into Virtual Training...
Aphotos: Urk, is that so? [Sighs.] One of our only links to the past is nearly collapsing... Very well then. I will have Blite see to it. [He faces Glitra.] Back to the matter at hand.
Glitra: Brother... [She lowers her head, closing her eyes. It seems as if she is trying to hold her tears back.]
Aphotos: Urgh... [Beginning to feel for Glitra.] I... am terribly sorry... But you are just not qualified to go into a Veil Plain alone... You understand, yes?
Floe: [Unassumingly, he floats up to the counter next to Glitra, taking a look at the paper she presented to Aphotos.] I'll take the job! [He places his paw on the job Glitra selected. It glows two colors, them being gray and icy blue. He then looks to Glitra and smiles.] We'll go together. Is that okay?
Glitra: [She cannot think of a way to thank Floe. She stares at him, in awe.] I-...[She simply nods.] Y-yes.
Aphotos: [He, too, nods, reading the paper.] Everything is in order. This will serve as your task for today, Floe... And, Glitra?
Glitra: [Silent, she turns to Aphotos.]
Aphotos: I hope you find Braig in one piece. Good luck. [He gives a faithful smile to her. This behavior is unusual for Aphotos...]
Floe: [He notices this, tilting his head a little before turning to Glitra, as if trying to spot something.] ... [Shaking the thought, he turns back to Aphotos.] Thank you, Aphotos. All right, let's hurry! [He takes the paper, which, through his Aurax, has been universally declared his assignment, and stuffs it in his baggage as quickly as possible. With a nod to Glitra, he leaves the guild.]
Glitra: [Speechless, she nods back, following Floe by instinct.]
...
...
...
[This was the very first time Glitra would be working alongside a guild apprentice...]
...
[The two make their way to the eastern ramp leading out of the heights and to, as said, mainly eastern territories and Veil Plains. With little time to spare, Floe leads the way to the Eastern Edge.]

-Eastern Edge.-


Floe: [The two reach the edge of the Veil Plain. Floe stops at this point, taking a deep breath.]
Glitra: [Feels forced to ask.] What's the matter...?
Floe: It's nothing too worrisome, but, um... Here we are. The Eastern Edge... Feel the change in atmosphere?
Glitra: [She turns to face ahead.] ... (Hm. He's right, it's a little different here... I remember this feeling...) ... [She, too, takes a deep breath.]
Floe: Are you ready?
Glitra: [She nods.] I am. Let's go.
Floe: Yep, let's. [He begins ahead into the cliff side wilderness.]
...
[Glitra and Floe progress as quickly as they can through the Veil Plain... but what is a Veil Plain? What makes it different then any other type of land?]
...
[The two rush into the Eastern Edge, immediately entering conflict with the hostiles of the area. These hostiles are formerly regular Akashes, much like those who reside in the heights. They have succumb to the corrupt energy of the Veil Plain, thus they have lost their reasoning and have become hostile.]
...
Glitra: [Shrieks, though not very loudly.] Ah!! Floe, ahead! [She points ahead to a group of hostile Akashes aggressively approaching. A disturbing grin crosses each of their faces as they all summon variously colored soulsabers. {Swords of pure Aurax energy. It isn't like a lightsaber, where that cuts through anything. This focuses solely on life force, ignoring the physical body. They can be conjured at any time.}
Floe: [A smile can be seen on his face. He keeps one arm across his chest as he closes his eyes. Light blue text appears out of nowhere, supposedly from his Aurax. It circles around him slowly until he throws his arm out. The letters fly away from him, vanishing into thin air.] Blizzaga~! [A large crystal of ice materializes above one of the hostiles, cooling the air rapidly until it explodes, sending numerous crystals raining upon the enemy with the addition of freezing air surrounding them. This it all it takes to fell these foes. They lay unconscious in a snap.]
...
Glitra: [In shock.] ...Wow... That was... Aurax?
Floe: [Giggles.] Yup~! Elemental Aurax. Hehe, they went down to a tier two Blizzaga~! I must be getting stronger. [Smiles nervously.]
Glitra: Heheh... Yeah... [She lowers her head, looking at her hands.] (Stronger...)
Floe: [Notices that something is troubling Glitra.] ...Um, are you... okay?
Glitra: [She nods.] I will be. [She raises her head.] Once we find Braig.
[To this, Floe smirks, nodding. They continue on, ready to face any threat that comes their way.]
...
[And they do, as they move through the wilderness. The Eastern Edge is as simple as a Veil Plain gets. It is a cliff side with occasional trees here and there. Unlike most Veil Plains, it lacks a certain catch known as Force Breakers... {This will be explained later.}]
...
[Even Glitra finds herself fighting with Floe. Her soulsaber is very unique to most. She holds it backside, while it appears to be a crucifix shape. Floe takes notice to this, again giving her a strange look as he had done in the guild.]
...
Glitra: [With a swing of her weapon, she sends a hostile back to Floe, who casts a quick Ice Elemental spell to finish the job.] (...I'm... I'm fighting... I don't feel like I'm doing much, but I'm fighting... For Braig...) [Her arm begins to give out under the weight of her own Aurax, something commonly seen in those who either push themselves to far, or need experience in the art. For Glitra, both cases are seen.]
Floe: [Again, he notices Glitra's behavior.] (She's trying so hard, but too hard... I'm glad Aphotos stalled her until I at least showed up, I don't think things would've gone too well on her own.) Glitra... You don't have to strain yourself. Unsummon your soulsaber and just let me do the brunt of the work. I don't want you to pass out here... please?
Glitra: ... [The thought of her brother perishing brings her focus back. Her pink soulsaber shifts color as she closes her eyes. it becomes a radiant white.] ...I'm okay. [She opens her eyes, a new, confident look on her face.] I can handle it a little longer.
Floe: [He blinks twice, noticing the soulsaber's change in color. Very few can cause this change, let alone summon anything but a sword. The exceptions so far are the guild members and a select few... including Glitra. He figures this is isn't her bluffing.] Alright. Hang in there, 'kay~? You're doing awesomely!
Glitra: You too! [She smiles, the two starting ahead at the same time.]
...
[At last, they reach the destination... however, they forgot one important aspect of a Veil Plain amidst the adrenaline.]

-Eastern Edge (Promontory).-


[The sun is bright, though the atmosphere is grim.]
...
Glitra: [She rushes ahead of Floe, calling for her brother.] Braig?! [Just up the cliff slope, she spots a small, red figure staring out at sea. She gasps happily.] Braig! Y-you're alive!! [She floats up to him, hugging him from behind. He doesn't turn his head or budge.] You idiot, you had me worried sicker than sick!
Floe: [He senses something amiss.] (Something's not right... Braig's strong, I know it! I've met him... even fought by his side, but what I'm getting... I'm feeling an irregular force at play... Anti-Aurax, like the hostiles.) Glitra, I think... something might be wrong. [He keeps his distance.]
Glitra: Hm? What could be...? B-Braig...? Are you okay...?
[A moment of silence passes...]
...
[Finally, Braig turns his head slightly, a grin across his face. Before Glitra can even react, he shoves her off of himself, conjures his soulsaber, and swings at his own sister. She is sent all the way back to Floe, the two colliding.]
Glitra: Ahh!! [Crashes into Floe.]
Floe: [Yelps as he is hit, laying below Glitra.] G-gah! Ouch!
Glitra: [She hovers up quickly, facing Floe.] Floe, are you okay?!
Floe: Look out!! Behind you! [Neglecting to answer, he points to behind Glitra.]
Braig: [Charging at Glitra holding his soulsaber with both hands.]
Glitra: [All she can do his cover her head with both arms.] Ahhhh!
Floe: [Growls a little before flexing his paw completely, a crystal of ice shielding Glitra as Braig swings. It causes a deadlock, though the ice crystal breaks. The enhanced force of this rupture focuses mainly on Braig's direction, blowing him over the cliff and supposedly into the Seraphic Ocean. Glitra is completely unharmed, though still covering her head.] ...You're okay, yeah...?
Glitra: [She peeks back at where Braig once was...] ...Br...Brother...?
...
Floe: [He floats up to Glitra's side.] ...I, um... I'm so sorry, but...
Glitra: [Quickly faces Floe.] What happened to him?! He would never attack me... He wouldn't! This is... This isn't real!!
Floe: You're absolutely right, he would never do that... But... [Lowers his head, closing his eyes.] I don't know... how to say it, um... Braig's... he...
Glitra: [Shakes her head, covering her face.] Don't tell me... Please, just don't...
Floe: ... I understand... I'm so sorry... [He looks from side to side.] Let's, um... let's go home. We don't want to stay here much longer.
Glitra: ... [She doesn't respond... Although, just as Floe is about to comfort her, she responds then.] Just... leave me here, I'll catch up...
Floe: [Shakes his head.] No way, I can't do that... I don't want you hurt... I know you're upset, but... um...
Glitra: Just go! [Tears begin rolling down her face.]
Floe: [He backs up a tad, splaying his ears.] Um I-I... O-okay... [With a sorrowful expression, he slowly leaves Glitra alone, heading back.]
...
[Glitra continues to wallow in pity, grief, and despair, falling to the ground. She leans on her arms, the only things holding her up. Tears, too, fall to the same ground.]
...
Glitra: ...[Sniffles.] ...Braig... Don't leave me... Not yet...
...
...
...
[In this grieving, an ominous return of her brother occurs. He rises over the cliff, dripping with dark red Anti-Aurax. In his right hand is a soulsaber... Glitra takes notice to this, looking up at her corrupted brother.]
...
Glitra: No... [She hovers up, still facing Braig.]
Braig: [With the same grin on his face, he slowly approaches his sister.] Say goodnight, Sis...
Glitra: [Shakes her head, a few tears flying off of her face.] No... No!! [The air around her shimmers and gleams as he summons her own soulsaber, still an illustrious white.] You aren't Braig. You are not my brother!! [She prepares herself...]
