OOC: Any chance you can post more often, Aeonireshiva? I don't want to have to wait another week.

IC: While Ciprian waited for a response from the elf, his companions were busy taking care of the sniper and mercenary he'd run through. The knight turned to see that the wounded man, healed by Carianna, now seemed to want to help them and he did so by interrogating the sniper.

Ciprian's jaw dropped as he watched the mercenary viciously tear off the sniper's arm. He was no stranger to blood and dismemberment, having fought in the war five years ago, but he had never seen a regular man tear off another's with his bare hands.

"By the name of Falis, you don't have to dismember the bloody fool!" Ciprian shouted.

Carianna gasped and turned away, covering her eyes. I need to get out of here, she thought. This was a mistake! With nothing she could do, she turned to run. It wasn't the wisest decision, but it was all she could manage. The priestess of Rada, known for non-violence, bolted down back towards the city she came from. I don't know if I can do this, her head screamed.

She ran until her legs got tired and it seemed far away. The image of that man's arm being ripped off replayed over and over again in her mind. She fell down on all fours, her stomach fighting with her heart for the most painful. Carianna threw her last meal over the side of the road. She coughed out the last bits, watching her vision blur through tears or disgust.

(OOC: I'm sorry to be a butt, but I have seroius problems with the post for Xian. As strong as he is. a 20 strength might allow him to yank a man's arm off. That I don't have a problem with. What I have a problem with is his character would be....correction SHOULD have brains enough to know that would be foolish. A man or woman will bleed out in moments from having a limb severed. But since the post was approved I'll go with it for now but it has it's repercussions as you can count the sniper dead. Even cauterizing the wound won't save him as his arms been yanked off by the shoulder.))

IC: Cian's eyes bulged and he screamed out of shock not just form the brutality of the act, but the fool of a mercenary just killed their only lead. "NO you fool!!!" The boy turned away his face as he fought to keep his stomach down.

The mercenary screamed as fountains of blood spirted from the wound and with wide eyes he looked up at Xian in shock. The shock proved to be worse as the man's heart beat faster pumping more blood through his system and the fellow began to pale and go limp. It was a horribly sickening scene within moments the man would be dead. There were no healing magics or techniques that could've saved him from such a greivous wound not in the time that it would take for his blood to empty from his body.

Seeing Xian's terrible strength and what he did she drew her daggers again, looking at him with a look of sickened disgust. Was he some kind of demon, one that could wear a humans flesh? Looking him in the eyes she spoke, with a rather flat tone in common.

"What are you demon, why have you come to lodoss? Is it to torment and kill people, answer me! Only a demon or beserker could ever have the strength to do that, he is no beserker I can see it in his eyes. Have you come after me, have they sent another to kill me?"

She stood there in one spot, keeping her stomach in check. Her aim was not to be the attacker, but ready to defend herself if she was right. She prayed to marfa in her mind she was not, as then the results would be terrible.

(OOC Since he has not really seen battle, he's kinda slow on the wound = death front. Remember, he spent almost twenty years on a farm. No where in his history did I support that he knew what wounds did what. As I play him, the big dumb ox he is, that's all I can say for defense. Otherwise: sorry.)

IC

Xian blinked. The idea never crossed his mind that he would have killed the man. Still holding the man up by his shirt, and the severed arm in the other hand, Xian tried to think how to remedy this situation. He turned to see if the priestess was still there, but she had vacated. Everyone looked like they were exceptionally queasy to some regard, save for Kylia who was fuming mad.

"I'm not a demon." Xian spat. "I'm just a farm boy, I ain't never killed someone before, and I certainly didn't mean to kill this guy. I was hoping just to intimidate him."

He pushed the arm against the wound, hoping it would stop the bleeding, which it didn't. Xian watched as the lifeblood poured from the wound that he had caused. He furrowed his brows in worry. "Dammit, don't die. You need to give the kid the information!" he shook the man in fury. "Give him the information, and then you can die."

Ciprian watched as Carianna ran by him. Where she was going, he didn't know, but he didn't think she could handle the violence. "Bloody..." Ciprian cursed again as he watched the priestess running. Looking back at the elf, he excused himself, "Pardon me, lady Amalthea." He tossed a glance over his shoulder at the half-dark elf and his squire. "Kylia, watch out for Cian!" he shouted, then took off after Carianna.

He had a hard time catching up to the priestesses. The weight of his armor and the cut in his side left him at a fast jog, but it was enough to keep Cari in sight. When the priestess finally stopped and retched on the side of the road, Ciprian caught up to her.

"Cari!" he called as he jogged up to her side. His wound stung, and a fresh flow of blood was saturating his shirt. He bent down and laid a hand on her shoulder, suddenly feeling lightheaded. He hadn't lost a lot of blood, but it was enough to make his head swim after exerting himself.

She caught his words as he left, he would reopen his wound at this rate. Walking over to Cian she looked at the boy, her face a mix of anger and shock.

"Cian you going to be ok? I know he is no demon, but I was not sure about it. Let's round up the other unconcious bandits, maybe they know something."

She spoke trying to keep a calm face, though she was failing miserably at it. She could hear in her mind the screams of her mother as she died, the sight of her father being brutally slaughtered in front of their eyes. As she watched the man dying a tear fell down her cheek, and she clenched her fist in rage. Giving Xian a glance she spoke, knowing her initial thoughts were wrong.

"Don't do that again please, I almost was ready to attack you there. I..I...I'm sorry for threatening to kill you, I had to know... Your not one of those monsters, your only human."

She waited for both Xian and Cian to respond afterwards, she could not wake them up and bind their hands and feet at the same time.

OOC: Especially in front of a priest of non-violence... I thought calling for Rada would have been enough ;)

IC:

The tears fell freely over the vomit. She could barely breathe. The image of that man's arm being torn off flew through her mind over and over again. "I..." she sputtered out, leaning over to his shin, "...I don't think... I can... do this..." Her body shook. "How... Ho... could he...?" She shook her head slowly, unable to look up.

((OOC Ok, to clarify a little more clearly about Xian: he is rash, impulsive and naive. The guy thinks if a wolf bites him on the arm it's being "playful". The character is big and dumb, and really doesn't think of the consequences before acting. That is how he gets into trouble so much. Between his lack of ability to comprehend his surroundings and his lack of wisdom, Xian just does what his gut tells him to. Also, since the kid has only really known the farm, him knowing about Gods/Goddesses is completely out of the question.))

IC

Xian looked over to Kylia and Cian. "You were threatening me?" He looked confused. "Oh, heh, that's what that was, you calling me a demon and all...I thought you were joking or something." He forgetfully scratched his head with the hand that still had the severed arm in his grip. "Oh well, yer forgiven then."

Ciprian took a hankerchief from under his chest plate and crouched down beside Carianna with some effort. He pulled the priestess up by her shoulders, then handed her the cloth to clean her face. He couldn't think of what to say, he was still shocked by Xian's actions too. "I'm sorry I brought you into this," he finally spoke.

"Its not..." she muttered, taking the hankerchief. "...your fault," she finished inbetween her sobs. When she saw, however, how he struggled against his wound, the memory of that arm fell away. "Ohh... So selfish of me..." she said through the tears she reigned in. The priestess coughed down her own sorrow immediately. "Let me take care of this..."

The pale-faced girl swallowed hard and closed her eyes. It has so hard to concentrate like this. "Oh.. Ra-Rada... Please re-move the... pain of this man and prote-ct him from the fates you sh-showed me minutes...before..." As before, the healing light came over his wound, but it appeared different than before. The light shifted from being brighter than her normal healing and dull, as if the heart of the magic was clearly beating. Carianna was quickly becoming light-headed after the healings and the shocks. She leaned on his side. "I... should give that... man some rites or something..." She raised the hankerchief weakly to his face and wiped away the sweat. "Thank you..."

As Kylia approached the boy opened his eyes, he'd clenched them shut then turned and stepped over to her hugging her tightly. Despite everything he'd see in his short life of fourteen years, he'd never seen anything so brutal or senseless. The man had been hired to capture him but no one needed to suffer or die like that.

The boy said nothing but shook in shock holding onto the half dark elf, despite the training, the street-smart bravado and his training he was still a child and somethings no child needed to see. In a weak voice sick from the sight he'd witnessed he spoke. "N..no..no I'm not. Iv'e never seen ...something so...that damn big fool...we could've questioned the fellow.. Now all our leads are gone...p..please just keep him away from me..."

Xian sighed. He moved away from Cian and Kylia, taking the dead body with him he lay the body down in the grass and sat beside him. "Dead men tell no tales." He mumbled.

He traced his memory as far as his limited intelligence could allow him. "Okay, in the guild, guy asks if I want to help him get a kid named Cian..." Xian continued to ponder whilest he talked. "Hired me and others, taken to this spot to ambush said child..." He scratched his head and continued to retrace his steps. "Okay, so then we attack the kid and his party, I get stabbed, guy gets taken out." He bit his lip and struggled to concentrate on his steps that led him up to now. "Ok, I pass out, get healed, pull guy's arm off. Kid gets sad." He rubbed his knuckles into his head and growled. "So, kid's sad...I'm the monster...Kesh...Keshian in the Wildlands!" he proclaimed loudly. He patted the corpse on the chest.

Cian is in danger but he doesn't like me, neither do the other three...and the elf, who knows what the elf thinks. Xian thought. But the guy said a name and a location, and he said that more people will come for the kid, which means that I can redeem myself in his eyes, and the others too.

Kylia still was torn from the experience as she listened to Xian, her own pain had to be kept in check.

"I cannot hold it against you, I just can't bring myself to see another human die. I've seen too much, What is your name?"

She replied to Xian who was obviously not very bright, she could not be angry with him for that. Cian's tight hug and words gave her some strength, she felt like she could not be weak at a time like this. She too hated the suffering of others, but even she could not ignore this. Speaking to Cian he laid a hand on his shoulder, her voice was restrained as she choked back her own tears.

"He didn't mean to kill him Cian, look at him and think of how he feels knowing what he did. I'll be around to protect you, like I could not protect my own parents... He stir...stirred up some bad memories, though it...it's not his fault. It's not my fault..."

She felt a little weak in the knees as she looked at the body and turned her face away, wishing she had not seen it too. It was not easy to forgive him like he had forgiven her, after all he did just kill a man by sheer accident.

OOC: At this rate, we'll be on page four before Amalthea responds. >.>

IC: Ciprian supported Cari against his arm. He didn't want to ask her to heal him, but he was grateful she did. "Don't mention it. I can't leave you out here alone," he said softly, with a weak smile. After seeing what Xian did, he didn't exactly feel like grinning, even if he had a pretty priestess in his arms. What were they going to do with the man? He seemed ready to switch sides and help them, but he didn't think anyone exactly wanted to be around him after seeing the man rip another's arm off.
