Daiko Flayme
The waves were a little uninviting to the small team of seafarers , pushing the rowing boat that they got their hands onto side to side, flinging its front up in the air only to meet an abrupt impact with the seawater’s crystalline surface. It was… definitely something that the real Daiko Flayme would’ve joyously indulged in, feeling like an explorer out in the oceans looking for lands untouched by civilization – as miniscule as that possibility showed itself. As he was now… in the state of a red, warm egg cradled in the arms of a fair elven floramancer, there were no words of excitement. No remarks on the beautiful waters or the irrational fear of oceans. No expressions, no raw passion. Daiko wasn’t Daiko right now…

But Kerii remained resolute. The bird of fire had made a promise, and it intended on fulfilling it. The life of Daiko wasn’t the most unpleasant one; the pyromage was powerful, had accumulated strength and skills to fawn over, and he had made friends from the north to the south of the country. A long scream from the kind of isolated wood life he lived up in Worth Woodsea… those six years of loneliness almost broke him. He used to be but an asocial, preying animal, clinging to the last wishes of his mother to survive and live through anything. The woods were his home, fridge, toilet and bed, and he embraced that barbaric wildlife with no other options in mind.

Until he met Lamia Scale… what a coincidence, that day. He was visited by a tall, steel-built swordsman with lack of manners, who walked straight into his cottage and gazed around in indifference. Daiko had actually attacked him, thinking the adult to have been some kind of burglar or thief, but he was met with a gut-wrenching punch to the chest that almost knocked the teenager out right then and there. It was followed by some kind of condescending remark on the lack of physical fortitude, and as Daiko felt at his absolute lowest so many years after his mother’s death, he was suddenly lent a hand and invited to join the brute’s guild.

The promise was that the swordsman would make him and the other members the strongest. Daiko’s resurrective prowess came in handy during combat training, and he was rapidly molded into a vicious fighter himself. And that… might’ve not been the exact similar case with Kerii. Daiko never got to know her story, but surely she couldn’t have known about his either.


The rowing boat met land- sand, to be precise, leading into vines and palm trees further ahead. Coda had napped on Kerii’s shoulder throughout the journey, but the sudden bump frightened her and sent her flying abroad. The egg in Kerii’s grasp would begin to glow:

“There is a temple built at the heart of the island. We… we… w-we… still got time,“ the egg spoke to her, revealing a sudden contortion in its voice. Strange…

It was strange being on this little rowboat sailing out to sea to an island Atani didn't even know existed until mere hours ago. The past day had been filled with a chain of painful events that felt they were never going to end. It felt almost surreal to have this time of rest to just Coda and herself.

The boat bobbed over the waves. The elf's long, blonde hair swept back in the cool salt winds. She held the vermilion egg close to her chest. Its warmth was like a gentle hug. Atani gave a quiet sigh and whispered to what remained of her friend. "We'll get you back to your old self again, Daiko." She softly rubbed the top of the eggshell in hopes of bringing comfort. She didn't know if he could feel it or not, but if turtles could feel through their shells, then maybe it was the same case. "We're on our way to the temple... I'm sure you know the one I'm talking about."

It then occurred to the elf that she did not know the proper name of the temple nor the name of the island she was headed towards; she only knew of its significance and that was truly the only thing that mattered in the grand scheme of things. It was the place where she would ultimately revive Daiko. She highly doubted it would serve much further purpose to her after the fact.

The phoenix fell silent. Quiet waves lapped the sides of the rowboat. Coda, perched upon the elf's shoulder, dozed off in the calm. Atani was tempted to nap as well, but she had to ensure they got to their destination. The will of her water magic guided them safely across the ocean. It was a draining task to keep up for such a great distance, but Atani couldn't risk falling asleep and letting her magic run wild to capsize the boat. She was no expert on phoenixes, but she didn't imagine any fire creature's eggs would do well in the water...

The first sign of land wasn't the horizon itself, but the seagulls soaring overhead. The elf's tired eyes brightened at the sight. It wasn't much longer before the shoreline came into view. Atani poured more mana into her spell to propel the boat even faster. It rammed into the shallows, getting caught on the seafloor before the vessel could fully reach land. Coda awoke and Atani hopped out of the boat. Egg in hand, she sloshed her way to the shore.

Once on land, the phoenix spoke to her from within the egg. He said that the temple was located at the heart of the island, but he sounded... pained almost. Or worried. It was hard to tell since it was only but a disembodied voice.

"What do you mean?" Atani asked as she started down the path into the jungle. "You never told me anything about time... How long does Daiko have?"

The egg still felt warm to the touch. He couldn't already be fading in this form, could he?

It was true… the Phoenix didn’t anticipate time to end up this cramped. It could only estimate by the sudden dwindling of its once kindled flame deep inside: “… 3 days. It feels like I can hold on for 3 days… I will let you know if it changes. But we still got time… the temple is not far away. A village is located near it… at the heart of the island… that is where we need to go.” It tried its best to reassure the elf that they could still make it without issues for as long as they kept moving on. The Bird of Fire also revealed that the island was inhabited by people who could prove helpful in leading them to the temple grounds.

As a matter of fact, Coda perked up abruptly at the catch of sounds echoing from the deep, tropical woods. They sounded… human! Perhaps someone in the forest could escort them to their destination, but… the sounds were chaotic.

“Damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it, DAMN IT! It must be some kind of joke?!” a young, paranoid voice called out to nothing and everything at the same time, “H-Hey, Eilidh… Eilidh… Eilidh!”

“Yes? Yes? YES?! Have you lost your mind yet?!”

“B-Bring me the compass… *grab* See, it points the same way- then what the hell?”


“Safe to say we’re lost, huh? You were so sure that the village was right at the center, but I see no village around… you sure anyone even lives here? All we’ve met were beasts-“

“I-I’m certain of it, Edward! Just- j-just give me some time to think this through… we must’ve missed some kind of road or tunnel, or maybe they’re living underground.”

“Why do you even want to meet them that badly? Let’s just bring these chests back and call it a day, but noooooooo! You do know that if we lose any of this, it’s on you, right?”

“T-This is huge, Eilidh! Trust me, these people will give us everything we ever wanted and even more… it’s worth trying to find them, but fucking hell, they’re shy…!”

A lot of kicking bushes, cutting vines and chanting a few spells on the way generated the sounds caught by Coda who nudged her beak gently on Kerii’s cheek to notify her of those sounds. Whether or not the elf would be able to hear them, Coda noticed that they were near a group of people and wanted to warn her. Maybe they were from this island village or something…

It would’ve been a good time to learn how to speak any human language… or any of the elven languages for that matter. Yet Kerii would likely be able to understand the bird, given her close blood relations to the woods and her heritage as a Wood Elf. Daiko was another case; his and Coda’s bond was just that strong, and they had come to know each other’s antics, patterns and habits to the point where words weren’t necessary to convey messages.

Still, the message was clear; try and face the sources of those voices and see if they would help them.

"Three days?" Atani frowned as she stared down at the egg in her arms. "Well, we're already here on the island. Let's hope that reaching its heart doesn't take that long."

While it was a good sign they had reached the land mass that encapsulated their final destination with a total of three days remaining, it was important to remember that this was still a place she had never been to before. No matter how in tune with nature the Wood Elf was or how comfortable she felt travelling between trees and foliage, she couldn't account for every factor. The tropics were notorious for their poisonous inhabitants-- both flora and fauna for that matter. While she was fairly confident she had the capability to deal with most things that came her way, there were times were even her healing magic proved to be insufficient. Since her magic failed to heal Daiko prior to his crumbling to ashes, she was worried it wouldn't work on the egg should it encounter harm as well. All the more reason to tread lightly, and keep her eyes and ears out for trouble.

Atani hugged the egg close to her chest-- as if bringing it centimeters closer made any difference-- and followed the path that took her into the heart of the jungle.

Some time in, Coda became unusually alert to something that Atani herself could not see nor hear. The raptor did not seem to be too worried about whatever it was though. Knowing that birds were often startled by even the slightest of things, Atani took that as a sign that it must've been something trivial like a scuttering animal in the far off distance. Eventually, however, the elf too came to hear what she presumed to be the same things Coda reacted to: voices. Human voices. The bird began to peck at the elf's cheek to let her know.

"Yeah Coda, I hear them too." What she didn't hear was the more minute sounds of spell casting and weapon slashing, for they were being used to simply clear the way through the thick jungle. "Maybe they know how to get to the village from here."

She was going one way, and it sounded like the voices were coming from the direction straight ahead. She hoped that meant they were coming from the village to wherever else on the island. And if they weren't? Oh well, it was still worth a shot.

"Hey!" she called once she saw some flashes of colored fabric peaking through the greenery. Atani brushed past the leafy bushes to see the travellers. "You're not coming from the village by any chance, are you?"

Sighs were aimed at Harald from both Eilidh and Edward. He was too invested in finding this village, and it rubbed off on them in a bad way. Still, as long as they could find riches to fund themselves, then they were able to overlook Harald’s nearly possessed interest in this village. He was also their sailor and, thus, ride back home, so they couldn’t give up on him here.

Harald’s head peeked up at lightning speed. A clear voice had called out to them, but it sounded like it didn’t come from the rumored hiss-voiced inhabitants of this island. Were there other explorers here?! If not for the friendly tone that came with the next sentence coming from the bushes, then Harald would’ve snapped at the… u-u-unusually dainty-looking elven lass. Given by the few moments of silence that passed by, she must’ve come alone… in the company, contradictorily, of an avian bird of prey and… a red, large egg?

Eilidh couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow. They thought that they were the only people from outside who had visited the island. Was this elf also an explorer in search of riches? That smelled of enmity to the Wind Mage, while the Water Mage Edward replied: “We’re not. And I take it that you aren’t, either?”

Harald didn’t say a word, but his eyes were glued to that red egg of hers. At one point, Eilidh glared back at Harald’s frozen state and snapped her fingers. “Hey, hotshot, you sure fell quickly! What, she fancies you?” Thinking that Harald was probably just digging the elven lady in front of them, Eilidh found even more reason to lose droplets of respect and hope for the obsessed Earth Mage. Yet, it wasn’t the elf that intrigued him so strongly… his eyes were merely on the egg.

“T-That pattern… that egg, it’s from the books! I’ve seen it illustrated in the old texts before!” he spoke up to the two other treasure hunters, “Himba Villagers were carrying that egg over to the Temple of the Sun… it must be one of their most treasured belongings! W-Where did you find that egg?! We’ve searched everywhere up until now…”

Eilidh and Edward gazed back at Harald and exchanged a look. Then, Eilidh slowly approached Kerii with a friendly smile on her face and a raised hand to exchange a handshake. “S-Sorry about him, I think he’s lost his mind during the time we’ve spent here. That egg is like an ancient artifact from the Himba Village… so I believe that you’re heading there too, right? I don’t know what exactly you’d want to do in a ruined village that old, but… hmh… no, you want to return the egg to them? Like some kind of act of kindness towards them? If that’s your intent, then…”

Regardless of how little Eilidh knew of the circumstances as well as the history of the egg, its true identity and the weight that Kerii carried right now, her actions were unreasonable. She simply thought that this blonde, pretty elf was attempting to returning the egg back to where they assumed she found it… since she was moving away from the shore and further into the mainland. That wasn’t the action of a treasure hunter, and thus they saw an opportunity. While Eilidh’s friendliness was meant to keep Kerii at bay, Harald clapped his hands once and summoned a dome of dirt around Eilidh and Kerii. That was when the previously friendly lady drew her dagger in the darkness and continued: “… that’s kinda lame.”


Eilidh never had the chance to attack and snatch the egg from Kerii, because a strong blast of wind emerged from the dome and had pushed the Treasure Hunter several meters away. Coda was trapped in there too, but her avian eyes could see clearly in the darkness that had engulfed them. Her wings of power had intercepted with Eilidh and saved Kerii from an ugly injury… but the others were alerted. Edward immediately whipped out with a Water Whip from his hand, but Coda was faster than that and tackled into the Water Mage with full force. Her beak almost drilling through the Treasure Hunter’s torso stopped him in his tracks, while Eilidh was recovering from the blast earlier and readying another Wind Spell.

Coda couldn’t attack all three of them at the same time. Not without backup…

Unfortunately, the wandering travellers that she and Coda encountered were not coming from Himba Village, but perhaps they would still be able to point her in the right direction. Before the elf even had a chance to ask, one member of the trio-- the one with short blonde hair-- took notice of the egg in her arms. It seemed that the legend of the phoenix native to the island was not as obscure as she had originally thought. In fact, the legend of the phoenix egg alluded to great treasure.

"W-Where did you find that egg?! We’ve searched everywhere up until now…"

"I uh..." witnessed my friend die and be turned into it from a magical bird. Sorry, it's not for sale? Yeah. That wouldn't fly.

The female traveller incorrectly assumed that she was on her way to return the egg to its 'rightful place.' Atani knew not of the significance this egg had to the Himba Village, but it most certainly was not a prize she was just going to hand over. But of course, even if she did take the time to explain herself, it wouldn't have mattered. An earthen dome enclosed both her and Eilidh. The mage's eye caught the shine of a metal blade glinting off what little sunlight was available just before the dome enveloped them in complete darkness.

Surprisingly enough, it was neither the elf nor the huntress who made the first move; it was Coda. The raptor's powerful wings beat against the wind to create a gust so strong that it broke the dome and pushed Eilidh back. Atani shifted the egg to her back, securing it with vines the same way as she did before, and summoned the might of the life that dwelled beneath the jungle floor. Minuscule spores rose from the ground and glowed with a yellow aura. For the time being, she and Coda would remain completely unaffected by them, lest either sustained an injury, which in that case they would be healed. The hunters however were not so lucky. They would feel as if the spores seared their skin.

For good measure, Atani summoned her bow from the pocket dimension contained within her ring and shot an arrow at the only hunter who hadn't been directly attacked yet. This, combined with her spell and Coda's attack, should be enough to deal with them. If not, the Wood Elf had some more tricks up her sleeve.

”Damn it! Edward, on your feet, now- *cooooough*”

Harold was taken aback by the sudden, quick session of events. That bird of prey had unleashed some kind of… gust, akin to a Wind Spell of the same caliber or, dared he say, higher than Eilidh’s herself. It even tore through his Earth Dome with ease… this was bad. This was really bad. But they were always finding themselves in these intense situations, being such daring Treasure Hunters that the bunch were. Surely, if they brought down the bird first, then the elf with the apparent Plant Magic wouldn’t be able to take on all three of them-

Which led to the cause of Harold’s coughing. His skin and throat were burning, uncontrollably contracting his muscular fibers in irritation. He couldn’t focus his Magic under these conditions, and given by the yellow dust that rose up from the ground… it was the elf’s doing! Edward, having Coda’s beak ingrained into his torso, had whipped the bird away and almost severed her left wing with his Water Whip, but then the spores got to him as well. Coda was engulfed in the spore’s dust and cried in pain, only to witness the pain subside and her wounded wing recovering from its injury in record time.

Basking her newly healed wing for safety’s sake, Coda watched Harold get one-shot by Kerii’s arrow. That took him from nowhere, having assumed that the elven Flora Mage wasn’t an offensive fighter. Edward and Eilidh were both sliced by Coda’s Gust, suffering from heavy blood loss.

Harold watched his teammates in pain and decided that they were outmatched. In struggle, he pulled the arrow out from his chest and suddenly allowed himself to be swallowed up by the earth, along with the two other Treasure Hunters who were too hurt to continue fighting. Simply as that, they never made an appearance to Kerii again… and even for several minutes afterwards, only silence filled the forest now.

They fled in defeat.

Just moments after firing her arrow, Atani heard a cry of pain come from Coda. Though she knew the raptor would in all likelihood be fine due to the protection of her magic, she couldn't help but tear her attention away from the fight to see what was the matter. She winced as she saw blood spatter from a deep gash in her wing. With the force from the initial slash gone, blood now poured from the appendage as it had nearly been severed in two. As her spell went to work, however, the wound began to close itself. It wouldn't be long before Coda was fully healed.

Seeing that her avian friend was more or less okay, she returned her attention to the hunter she shot. A slight smirk tugged the corner of her mouth as she saw her arrow being torn from his chest. The moment he did so, the arrow crumbled to dust. It of course was made of magic. As soon as it served its purpose, it never left a trace of it ever being there apart from the wounds it inflicted.

After recovering from being hit with the water spell from one of the hunters, Coda retaliated with an attack of her own. Bloodied and beaten, not a word had to be spoken between the trio for them to realize that they were fighting a battle they could not win. They regrouped and the one with earth magic had them sink into the forest floor in retreat. All that was left was to find the village...
