Chapter 1: The wind blows once again
After leaving for months as Shiro, Batsu discovered that his alternate personality got more firends in some weeks that him in his whole life, maybe it could be a problem of his behaviour, was he too focused in his honour and not in gathering friends and allies? Shiro got himself in a organization, Ryuugin's idea surely, called Teku, but as Batsu recovered his mind after the sacrifice of the young dragon, he quitte Teku, he felt that even if he searched for the same end, he didnt liked the way they were taking things. After roaming for some time, and helping another group of heroes in defeating and evil wizard, he found about an organization called simply The Company, thus he started a journey to join them.
He managed to be recruited, as it seems somebody of the inside knew about his defeat against Newdeath, and maybe even more. The primary objective of the Company was to heal the world, after the disaster caused by the Gekido Sunrise, that Batsu felt somehow his fault, at least partially since he wasnt even capable to scratch Newdeath, so he found the objective of this group as a way to make ammends for his past mistakes. And thus after giving his only earthly material object, his home, donated as a Training facility for the Company. Batsu decided to use his abilities to ehlp people and not only fight, thus he moved towards the farming areas of Australia, and a near Eolic energy plant, to test his newfound Fuushinkui.
With almost no effort, Batsu reactivated the eolic plants, by creating a loop of wind, until real wind reached the zone, he found that using his newfound ability was almost natural, as Shiro instinctively used it, and that knowledge was passed down to Batsu, it was a shame that he didnt had the powers of Ryuugin, since the Dragon sacrificed himself to save his mind, he will be eternally indebted with him. After securing the Wind loop, to last at least for a week, Batsu went to help the farmer, and using his amazing strenght and some improvisation he started grinding the ground of the farmlands, in amtter of ours he had covered at least 40 square km, and as a shocked farmer brought him some ale he decided to rest his head.
Aestus's Tale (Links with Maximus's Post)
Chapter 1: The Hunt
Ten weeks after his exile Aestus was travelling throught a country named Germany, after some minor adventures and battles he got a clue about the whereabouts of one of the Sponisio Ex Custodis hosts, he was surprised to discover than the one he was following was a Magus. He got clues out of a distant city, the first port he got after leaving his homeland, a place were an evil Magus called Obscuris, was the ruling tyrant. One of the heroes that beated him, shouted his name and the name of his homeland all over the place, so it wouldnt be difficult to find this man called Maximus. Travelling throught the wasted border Aestus reached the country named Poland, the magical energy he was tracking was getting more dense and concentrated, indicating that Maximus, one of the most famous exiled of the last 50 years, a innate genius in the Academy, a high-class nobleman. The hunt was on, and Aestus wouldnt fail in this asignment, and nobody would stop him, or block his path.
The Young Knight kept pressing on, only stopping to eat or sleep, and once as he defended a ruined village from the attack of a group of slavers, it seems that he was exiled in the least favorable moment, the world was in ruins, destroyed by a event called the Sunrise, only said in terrifed whispers by the people he meet on the road. Some kind of organization attempted to conquer the world, or destroy it, and in the process of stopping them, the world was wrecked. Even now the population didnt exactyl knew who winnned, the villains or the heroes? Aestus didnt cared about that for the moment, he didnt even really cared a lot for the people, he was sent to fullfill a mission, even after being exiled like he was, and his sense of duty was bigger than his compassion to the pains of this people, but after travelling for weeks throught this wastelands he grew acustomed to see the despair in the people eyes.
He finally grew near to Maximus, and after 5 long days of travel he reached a zone that was overcrowded with magical energy, and a city burning not far from there. Aestus pressed on, and even summoned his flame wings, and as he crossed throught the burning location, he gathered the fire of the near buildings to nehnace his magical reserves, if the rumours were true, Maximus haves almost three times the magic of a normal Magus, so the Phoenix Knight would need as much energy as he could, since the rumours also said that the Exiled Magus had a explosive temper. Finally after some minutes of search he found his target, and landing in a burning building just besides Maximus he spoke. Maximus Van Halum, Exiled Magus from Aldebaran! By the powers granted to me by the Council of the Five Mages and the Pugnus Congregatio of the Ensis Order, I, Aestus Aquilus, Phoenix Knight of the Ensis Order and Aurus Pugnus, hereby arrest you in order to prove your status as a Sponsio Ex Custodis herald!
