She grew up astride the back of her guardian, Obsidian. The elf and the dire wolf led a nomadic life, traveling the planet at their leasure for as long as Raiya could remember.
Dangers of such a life were inevitable, for they occasionally found themselves in the crossfire of multiple wars, territory disputes between opposing civilizations, and tracked by hunters who so desperately desired the ancient wolf's hide. It was still a quiet, peaceful life for the majority of it, and it was a life that they were both content with. As Raiya grew older, her desire for knowledge and new experiences grew. Obsidian eventually allowed her to go off and visit populated areas when they stopped to rest, and he stayed out of sight with a watchful eye. Raiya socialized and learned from those she encountered, picking up various skills such as different languages, cultures, self-defense methods, healing, and much more. Raiya found that each place provided a different skill, and she could not get enough. Obsidian would always appear again after a few weeks, and he and Raiya would continue on their way.

They had no home of their own, and they never stayed in one place for too long. Raiya was fully content with this lifestyle.


Until, that is, She met Maigra Lainé.

 

 

 

9811521487?profile=RESIZE_400x||| F U G I T I V E

It was a chance happening, and one that would alter the course of life as she knew it. Raiya and Obsidian ran into Maigra Lainé, an ex-member of the infamous Warlord Army, and Leer, her black-feathered dragon companion, while ambushing a slaver's squadron as they transported their newest haul of prisoners. The four of them quickly subdued the slavers and freed those imprisoned. The squadron leader used his final breaths to mock Raiya and Mai, stating that they have done nothing but brush dust away from the surface, and had saved no one in the long run. The women soon found leads to the potential headquarters and, filled with determination to sever the head from the snake, began to plan their attack. Leer and Obsidian warned them to leave it be, but did they listen? Absolutely not. Alas, the pair were inevitably captured and faced horrors untold within a gargantuan underground slaver's prison.
Yet their spirits remained unbroken, and their treatment only fuled their motivation. The two ultimately broke free, and their escape and aquisition of the prison's database ultimately led to the violent self-destruction of the entire facility.
Raiya was absolutely devastated at the loss of so many innocent lives. Mai argued that that the lives sacrificed are miniscule in number compared to the lives saved in the future. Thus was the mentality of a Warlord, and it was a mentality that Raiya had yet to accept.

The four of them had to flee due to the following investigations. Raiya and Obsidian found a home with Mai and Leer, and they all lived together for a bit over a year. During this time, Raiya helped Mai study the lands and the creatures in it, and Mai taught Raiya various forms of advanced skills. Obsidian still had the heart of a Nomad, and soon became restless. He wished that he and Raiya move on, yet the elf protested. She enjoyed what she was doing with Mai, and felt like she had much still to learn. Mai found a solution; she would reach out to a colligue for a due favor;

And thus, Raiya and Obsidian traveled to the Warlord territory, and Raiya was taken under General Creed's wing.

Their initial arrival to the Warlord territory was met with quiet hostility from all of the high-ranking generals. General Creed himself seemed quite disgruntled that he had to take the young elf under his wing, yet he kept true to his promise to Mai, and took on the roll of Raiya's mentor.

Raiya was no stranger to magic and its many uses, yet Creed mentored her on exactly how magic worked. The physics, the theories, he overall taught her to better grasp exactly what magic was, how it interacted with the planet's many elements, and how it can be paired with more "artificial" components to enhance desired powers. Raiya gained a much deeper understanding of how to use magic, and thus, her abilities and strength increased tenfold.

Magic was not the only skillset that Raiya sharpened. She partook in weapons training and routine sparring matches with the other soldiers, hence honing her combat techniques both with and without weaponry.

Her time as a soldier did not come without qualms. The Warlords were a brutal bunch, and they relied on the strength of their teams and the strength of the army as a whole to survive. Any form of weakness in a soldier was seen as a threat to the rest of the squad, and hence, weakness was not tolerated.

Raiya got into frequent verbal spats with one of the Grandmasters, Mitchel Blade, most commonly known as “Wrath." Accurately titled, the inflammatory personality of the Grandmaster did not mesh well with Raiya's unsubmissive temperament, and those verbal spats quickly escalated into a physical altercations. The altercations proved to be a source of both amusement and annoyance to the colleges that had to pull them apart.

As time wore on, she began to gain a better understanding of the complicated world they lived in. The more she learned about the world, the more she learned about herself and the history of those she lived with. One could say that she learned a little too much. The familiar feeling of restlessness grew. One final and brutal battle with Wrath left them both with severe injuries; That was the final straw in the elf's mind. Raiya was no Warlord. She never could be; the difference between her nature and theirs was far too stark.

Raiya gained Creed's permission and forgiveness, and she withdrew from the Warlord army.

The Empire of the Night-Winged, or more commonly known as "Nightwing." It was one of the two segments of the whole planet that was entirely untouched by the modern world, and it was completely and viciously free from the influence of outside forces. The gargantuan territory and all who dwelled in it were ruled under the fierce and watchful eye of Kaida and her trusted Draconian council. The territory was as great and feral as the beasts that called it home, and it was there that Raiya found her own true home for many, many years.

After Obsidian's departure, she found herself bonding with a dire Dragoness by the name of Atheria. Atheria was the mate of Chanook, the Dragon who ruled the lower crescent of the Empire.

Raiya and Atheria collaborated with their many companions to help build and defend the Empire. Raiya flew with the kings and queens of the sky, she fought wars side by side with friends, she helped nurture the young dragons and new life that blossomed during times of peace.
She learned, she loved, she thrived,

;---- and she l o s t,


 The Empire of the Night-Winged met its premature and devastating end.

Raiya experienced death on that fateful day. The mental bond between Dragon and Rider allows the pair to share feelings, sensations, thoughts and notions even from afar. Raiya felt everything when Atheria fell to her violent and abrupt end, and with the loss of her partner, a part of Raiya died too.

Once she scrounged up enough strength to travel again, Raiya searched the ravaged territory for any signs of life. Any hope she had of finding those she cherished was quick to dissolve ;; with every death confirmed and every life unaccounted for, it became all too real that the life she knew was over.

Raiya began to withdraw deeper and deeper into herself. For the first time in her long life, she was truly, completely, and terribly alone.

Light has an odd way of reaching even the darkest corners;; A gleam of hope was birthed by the unexpected meeting of Naomi Shimura.

Raiya's adaptation to life in the bigger city was a smooth transition thanks to Naomi's help. Rehabilitation came with time, and soon enough, Raiya found purpose once more.

Omnia Oddities is Raiya's current "project." This two-story shop features a library on the top, and a general oddities shop below. It appears fairly normal to the untrained eye, yet Omnia provides necessary items and valuable tools for magic users. Some of these commodities include ritual tools, healing supplies, various herbs, stones and a plethora of other things both on display and hidden away. Ask nicely, and she may have it.

One best mind their step and keep ill intents at the door: Omnia is guarded by an array enchanted beings that are hidden in sight. These creatures become self-activated upon the detection of a thief or a patron with sinister intents both towards the shop or Raiya herself.

     There are very few who have managed to touch her life in such a drastic manner. Spencer is laced into Raiya’s memory as a figure of familiarity, companionship and comfort over countless years. Contact was severed when the Nightwing Empire fell into ruin, yet a chance meeting a long while after entwined their paths once more. Though they currently reside in different homelands, contact is ensured by frequent visits and hawk-borne letters. Raiya looks upon old memories with fondness, and holds dear even the times they sit in silence. She hopes their paths will remain synchronous, and will do whatever she can to keep him around.

     Encountering the elven hybrid was an unexpected feat indeed. Novak’s vigor and lightheartedness starkly contrasted the stoic personas that Raiya had grown accustomed to, and she is both amused and captivated by him. Novak has become like a brother to Raiya; when at peace, they banter and partake in playful bickering.  When faced with tribulation, they guard one another fiercely. There is never a dull moment with him around, and Raiya could not be more grateful.

 

Novak, Raiya and Spencer often dwell in each other’s company.

The three of them together is a force to be reckoned with.

     She could not have been prepared for this chance encounter. It was an unlikely friendship: Naomi was the daughter of someone linked to Raiya’s old life in the Nightwing Empire. Fate lead them to meet in an alleyway during Raiya’s first night in the city. Their differences were placed aside, and a friendship bloomed over marveling over one another’s life stories. Together, they shared a home as roommates, and pulled each other from very dark points in one another’s lives. Raiya looks upon Naomi with utmost fondness despite her history. She knows that Nao can fend for herself, but she vows to vehemently guard her from whatever comes their way.

     A wanderer, this one is ;; an unchained soul entrapped in wanderlust. Communication is incredibly sparse and contact remains short-lived, yet Raiya holds no bitterness towards her adopted sister. There are times where Raiya wishes she could be closer to Kyrah, yet she has learned to not protest when the wolf deems it ready to go. She remains quiet when they part ways, yet is always prepared to welcome Kyrah back with open arms.

  • Raiya's character has been a work in progress since roughly 2010. Her history, personality, and everything about her has been created by RP interactions over the years. It is my goal to continue developing her as a character and her storyline to its maximum potential, up until I feel it is appropriate to retire her.

  • While her fingertips brushed his hair aside the grin sobered but never disappeared from his features. It certainly didn’t from the glint in his eyes. “Please,” Spencer responded. He followed along through the threshold, and despite it being a far stretch from Omnia visits of the past, he felt a subtle sense of normalcy in the walls. Perhaps he had traveled alone for too long. His own walls he’d carried came down just as quickly when the door had opened.

    On the other side of the door, the bunker’s contents matched the exterior of the space. He expected no less after her travels. His gaze swept over the chairs, trying to imagine who she had been traveling with for so long. The depiction of an irritable Wrath throwing a chair was still in the back of his mind from their earlier letters passed on and made the corner of his mouth twitch in thought. The vague silhouettes he’d imagined left as he heard the clang of the water being placed on the stove. Spencer did a half-turn after the door closed. The object in the corner was the last anomaly his eyes caught.

    While she readied the stove, a cool hand was placed on the stone statue’s mane while he inspected it precariously, scratching loosely at one of the patches with a nail before he left it be. It looked hand-carved; it felt as if it didn’t match the region let alone its placement. It was another question to be stowed away in a line of questions that was brimming since before he left for the location.

    Spencer settled down in the next few moments and rested his legs from the travel that had brought him there. The messenger bag he carried found a place on the back of the wooden chair after it was pulled out for himself. His eyes followed as Raiya took a place beside the table. Her sentiment was shared by the way his expression grew pensive. “There is… it feels like you walked one half of the world while I walked the other” Letters could only carry fragments of the moments they had captured.

    His eyes wandered about the floor to the question and Spencer’s head shook. “None at all. Perhaps startling one or two of the locals, but it seems I’ve left my trouble back in Melbourne. I’m no longer being followed... at least, not as closely.” The ghost’s head tilted. “And you… they captured him? They truly did?”

  • When Dia’s head hit the stone creature, the indoraptor staggered a bit. Enough that she didn’t realize the second gargoyle leapt from the rafters above. She noticed the tail and went to either block or attack, it wasn’t clear which one, but she was heavily thrown off by the sudden weight on her back. Her front side slammed into the floor from the intense amount of weight on her head and nape. It was probably amazing she didn’t break her neck. Despite being pinned, she squirmed around, or tried to. This was an attempt to get the gargoyle that was on her back off. She even tried to get her head free. Which failed miserably. These creatures weren’t her usual cup of tea, so she didn’t really know *how* to fight them. It didn’t mean she wouldn’t! Obviously.

    Low growls and snorts escaped the indoraptor as she forced herself back into a standing position on all four. She shook herself harshly only to slam back into the ground due to the uneven amount of weight she was experiencing from the said creature. A low call was sent out in an attempt to call her siblings that were nowhere to be found. She needed the help and she knew it!

    Although that call was picked up by the nearby soldiers who were following the indoraptor’s footprints. “I picked up her sound on the radio.” The radio guy said. “It seems like she entered the town.” Another one said as few of them made their way back to the makeshift campsite just outside of the town. They managed to track the indoraptor with some of her footprints here and there due to her weight pushing down the topsoil level a bit. Probably due to the area being wet from rain or some kind of water. “Lets head to the town. Stay downwind and out of sight.”

    Back at Raiya’s shop, Raiya was completely forgotten about. The woman could have easily run away and be safe and sound because the indoraptor was more angry at the thing on her back than anything. Although the other gargoyle was fair game to Dia’s anger too but not as much as the one on her back. A harsh snort escaped the indoraptor as she forced herself to stand once more, slamming them into the wall which most likely did nothing since her stance was off. She couldn’t move much due to the uneven amount of weight.

    There was a moment when Dia tried to stand up again, only able to push up her backside. That was until something wrapped around them. When her back legs were snatched out from under her, the raptor went berserk. She did everything in her power to overcome this. Angry barks and chitter-like sounds escaped the creature as she tried getting her head free. The struggles that Dia did the entire time earned Raiya’s flooring deep claw marks. One that definitely showed if it had been done to a person, they would have been scarred up. Most likely dead.

    Her tail lashed around behind her but it couldn’t reach the elf. When Raiya came towards her face, those crimson hues snapped towards the woman beside her. A harsh snort escaped the indoraptor as she continued to struggle, attempting to push her front side up. Unless the creature’s hold broke. Somehow. Raiya was safe.

  • Spencer had spared the avians any mission flights during his travel, up until they were close enough to guide him to the location, just like the messages of any other trip they had successfully fulfilled for the duo. The trek itself took time to register in Spencer’s thoughts. So many months had been spent traveling to the tune of running, rarely did he have something as specific at the end destination to look forward to. Then there were the circumstances as a whole… This wasn’t a stop by Omnia. He had learned that quickly enough with the stares and confrontations in the Middle East that he was promptly working to avoid.

    It felt like his knuckles had hardly left the surface by the time Raiya pulled the door open, giving him every indication that she had been waiting. The man’s face lit up to be seen for a fraction of a second before he was pulled in for the embrace that was shared. Spencer hugged her tightly until the tension in his frame started to dwindle. All the while, he drew in a long and steady breath. 

    She was alive. No matter what his worries told him over the messages sent, no matter how little control he had in what he heard. The breath was released over her shoulder and a hand rose to cradle the back of her head.  She was alive.

    His eyes shut tightly for a moment as he gathered himself by the time they had parted, but a glossiness to those hues wasn’t missing when he finally looked at her. There was something about hearing her voice again. It put a broad smile across his face no matter how loaded the question at hand was. “I’ve… been better or worse… Raiya I’m so happy to see you again.”

  • -Thank you so much. It is a large in progress. I have all the ideas on my head and just trying to figure out how to get them out. I'd love to write with another Elven character. -

  • {// Apologies for the delay in RP replies! They shall be sent out shortly~} 

  • It took all of Blight's focus to use telekinesis to alter the flight Tracjectory of the multitude of shrapnel from his direction and redirect it towards the hunters. But the focus he needed meant he couldn't dodge as effectively as he had to stand still for his TK to work. 

    A point blank spear was something he was unable to redirect or dodge in time. The only thing he could do was twist his body so the spear would at least miss his heart but still it would inpale him right in the chest. Had he been just an elf. He would die from such a wound but he was more then just an elf. 

    He fell to one knee as he felt his energy drain and he would let out a call. Moments later a booming roar was heard overhead as a giant shadow was cast upon the ground. Soon the one behind the road was revealed as a mighty, giant, black, armored dragon descended from the blacken skies. 

    "BURN them ALL!"

     

    Blight yelled out and the dragon looked upon the ones his master was fighting. It's maw would open as shadows began being drawn inside. Within seconds, a blast of darkness flame would come raining down upon the hunters to finish the fight once and for all.

  • - pokes cookies, takes a sniff. Turns up nose at Cass cookies. - No Trust Cass

  • "Anywhere~"

    Once the Elven woman was seated in place, her much larger friend stepped away from that ledge until his talons could no longer reach. From there, his finned tail began waving itself in a side-to-side motion, giving them a surprising amount of forward movement. They were already headed out to see where somebody was less likely to spot them.

    "Ever been surfing before?" Tempest would ask when lifting his head to glance at her, somewhat grinning at the thought of giving her a joy ride. Regardless of what her answer was, he'd speed ahead towards what appeared to be some very large waves ahead, surpassing even him in terms of size. Chances were she's had far more dangerous rides than this.

    "Hold on for this one!"

    By manipulating the surrounding water, the sea drake used it to propel himself at increasingly high speeds, turning to move horizontally with the coast.

    With that same enormous wave finally reaching them, he began rising on its curvature, literally riding it sideways as they tilted towards his left. What kept them from tipping over, and Raiya from falling off was the fact it was pushing on them enough to prevent such. "Here we go!!"

    As the crest began to overhang, said aquatic male was coming to a ninety-degree angle while they zipped through it. Not long after, they were close to being upside down from him rotating, continuing to speed through the narrowing tunnel of water before them.

    Once a full three-sixty roll was made, Tempest bolted further ahead to escape the crashing waters above upon landing, avoiding it. He quickly moved aside before leaping over the oncoming wave, diving under, and surfacing again with a splash.

    "How are you holding up back there?!"
