PostSubject: The Islands~ (2)   Sun Jan 08, 2012 4:54 am

The main Island of Siram is known as Civus. The Island is quite like any other you could see; golden beaches, palm trees scattered about, and a flawless view of the magnificent blue ocean. The town central is the main center of the Island, consisting of small shops and markets. The majority of Sirams population exists within this area the town itself, being built on the back of a turtle, can move to just about anywhere. However, it usually tends to stay in one place: Above the kingdom. The buildings are made of magnificent, multi-colored coral, and as such are very appealing to the eye. With its size, the island has a general capacity of about 500 people, give or take. The shops and markets in town look much like the normal houses do; differently colored coral structures. The main island is used as the residential area for the clan, as well as the main shopping and recreational spot for citizens and visitors.

Coeo is often referred to as the “Island of Healing.” Though most members of Siram have at least some Healing abilities, those who have exceptional skill often become professional healers, and work on Coeo. Professional healers are often pursued by outsiders who are in desperate need of a healing, or citizens who were, for whatever reason involved in accidents. There are no residents of Coeo. Only professional healers live on the island, so that someone will be present at all times in the event of an emergency. Farming and fishing are also customary acts on this island. Siram is known for growing its tropical fruits and vegetables. From the island of Coeo, they are grown, and distributed to the other islands, as well as prepared for trade to other villages.

Dae Hasley; Possibly the most revered Island, is the legendary Island of Hasley's Mountain. Since the birth of The Five, the people of Siram have given themselves wholeheartedly to the belief and worship of Halsey (♪ Pronounced; Hail-sai), the one true goddess of Siram, Water Incarnate. It had been told that the great Halsey used to reside in the islands of Siram as none other than an everyday person, whom for the sake of her clan, gave herself to the dark overlord Abjit, who threatened to plague to crystalline waters of Siram, and end all life for the people. Legend told that she traveled to the smaller chain of islands just outside of Siram, stepped foot on the forbidden island, and climbed the climbable mountain; a mountain said to vaporize anyone instantly upon impact, and turn them into the light, refreshing mist that encircled the islands. After reaching the top of the mountain, she met with the one they called Abjit; ready to give her life to save the people. The fact that she had answered the nightmares of Abjit that everyone in the clan dreamed at night, knowing where her fate would end, baffled him. "Why sacrifice your precious life, when the people you are trying to save are too selfish to offer themselves to save you?" She simply replied "Water is peace, serenity, it is healing. I know that each one of us is born of water, are made of water, and hold water in our hearts and souls, as we are one; even myself. So, is it not my duty to do like water would, and create peace?" Irritated by her answer, he cut conversations quickly, and stole the life of the only one willing to give herself purely. And on that mountain top, on that night, Abjit had been destroyed by the purity of the life he had taken. And in the memory of Halsey, their great savior, the life of Siram thrived. Texts known as the Codes of Halsey came into existence after her death, shaping the very existence of the clan of Siram. One of the Legends in the Code, tested and found true, is the fact that if anyone where to set foot on Dae Halsey, ourside of Halsey herself, would dissipate instantly; becoming an addition to the soothing mist that surrounds the island itself. Because of this, only the reincarnates of Halsey herself are allowed to set foot on the island, often coming to the mountain's top for several months at a time to meditate.

Ora Halsey is much like Dae Halsey, in the fact that it is a sacred place in which people come to worship Halsey. However, Ora Halsey is a place in which everyone can come to ask for Halsey's help. The island itself is right off to the side of Dae Halsey, independent temples for worship peppered through the abnormally dense, damp forest. Almost like a rainforest, without the dangerous creatures, and with half of the rain; Ora Halsey is a very spiritual island, one of the most spiritual places in all of Siram, and possibly even Daratan. It is the location of most every ceremony to take place in Siram, including the biannual Initiation ceremony for new Guardians. This island is not meant for common exchanges, and should only be inhabited in times of spiritual need.

All paths on the face of the main island eventually lead to the Pod Station in the center of the town. The Pod Station is the only form of transport for outsiders to travel from the Island, to the Underwater Kingdom. The Station is a blue shaded, transparent, spherical building, the size of a small house. Along the walls of the building, are ten capsule shaped pods. Two attendants are present in the Pod station at all hours, in order to ensure that those needing to travel along them will be able to do so with no issues. The pods are each about the size of a small closet, capable of fitting about five people. They’re made of a strong, clear material, to allow visitors to take in the magnificent view that is the ocean beneath the Island. The wildlife, and corals are astonishing through the royal blue filter that is Sirams waters.

The trip that the pods take, though the mazelike paths under the ocean takes approximately two minutes. During which time, passengers are likely to see various fish, dolphins, whales, or even sharks! Upon their destination, they will see an almost identical station to the one from which they departed. The only difference is, instead of the doors opening to the outside, they open to reveal a corridor, that leads to the grand, crystalline Kingdom of the Royal Family. The corridor leads directly into the main hallway, which breaks off into several main corridors; to the left, the employees of the kingdom's wing, to the right, the visitors wing, and up the stairs, is the royal's wing.

Unbelievable... That's what Sach wanted to think, but it wasn't . It wasn't unbelievable. I fact, it wasn't even surprising. He rushed to Coeo, with a half-dead A'Nailiah in his arms. He never should have let her go on that "self-exploration trip..." She had an open wound in her side that he was attempting to care for with his limited healing ability, but she needed a real healer. She needed an expert. The best healers in the world lived on this Island, someone HAD to be able to help her! Once he arrived at the medical center, they rushed her to the Emergency room and began working on healing her injuries. "Hold on..." He said, holding the hand the injured beauty. "I'm going to get Micah, and I'll be right back." But by the time he left the building, he heard a familiar sound. Ptitsa came soaring down from the skies, with a message for him. Also, Caladrius and Zshar had come, most likely sensing A'Nailiah's condition, for they went straight for the medical center, and landed on the roof. Sachiel didn't know what to think of that. Since he was too large to go into the center, he couldn't look at A'Nailiah, which meant there was no prediction to be made. Perhaps that was best. Sachiel read the message from the bird, and instantly crumbled it up, enraged by it's contents. "CALADRIUS!" He yelled. He pulled out a parchment, and wrote a message, containing Naili's condition, and that she needed to returrn to Siram immediately. He handed it to the bird with a sigh. "Deliver this to Micah, please." He said. He chose Caladrius to deliver it because he didn't want the bird that predicted life or death around at a time like this. He then returned to Naili's side, the two large birds remaining on the roof, Zshar offering his energy in attempts to keep Naili alive until her condition had been recovered.

Many days had been spent soaring over the clear skies of Daratan on the wings of her guardian. Many restless nights she spent huddled within the blankets of his frosty blue feathers, as Caladrius cast his mist over Siram’s waters. So many memories, so little care for the seconds she left behind. But every dew-drop of time stretching between Micah and her sister was hard to bear. It had taken her at least two hours in the pods to get as far away as Saravya. Caladrius was admittedly faster, but it would still take an hour to get home. During that time, there was little to do to keep her from diving overboard and swimming the rest of the way; or worse, falling into an emotionless wasteland far deeper than the sea itself.

Minku sensed her unease, most likely due to the silent sobs that ripped through her tiny body. Ptitsa and Caladrius could no doubt feel every ounce of her shock and despair. They were connected to her on a level no one truly understood. Sometimes not even herself. These three guardians had been the spirits who carried Halsey’s own to the shrines of Siram, long before the vessel of ‘Micah’ had been born. They had become individual pieces of the same being; without one, the others were incomplete. This is what allowed Ptitsa and Caladrius to share their memories of the night with her now. All she could do while they flew, was replay what they had seen, searching desperately for even a single detail that would prove this all a horrible nightmare instead of reality. She couldn’t.

Earlier in the Redhead, she had only gotten as far as seeing Naili’s broken body to shut herself down. Now that she had nothing else to do, she allowed Ptitsa and Caladrius to show her the rest. Ptitsa had seen them first, when he arrived to give Sachiel her note. He immediately reacted when she saw them; sent out a call to his brothers before swooping down to give the message. From the look on Sachiel’s face as he read the note, Micah had no doubt he was furious with her for being so stupid. Then came his own note. He had called Caladrius, scrawled a quick message on parchment, and ordered him off to collect her; without knowing Ptitsa would follow to give the message himself.

Micah was glad Ptitsa had come. He was able to explain far more than the note could. The paper crumpled in her palm now was slightly irritating itself. How could Sachiel think such a rushed message would do justice or any good to the situation at hand? It didn’t matter now, she supposed. She was also glad because with Ptitsa here, Micah would be sure her sister was still alive. If she had died, Ptitsa would have taken off to collect her soul, and he hadn’t yet. Which meant she was alive… but for how long?

The sun was whispering over the horizon by the time they came in site of Siram’s islands. The sun was no match, however, for the dark clouds brewing in the sky. Far below them, the sea stirred; waves crashing in on each other in a violent dance. The sea could sense their unease: the four guardian spirits of Siram. And it was responding in its own sorrow, spraying the island shores with heavy tides, and washing them away with thick sheets of rain. The droplets came so quickly she had to sweep her eyes clear of them instantly. It wasn’t often that her emotions were so strong, they stirred the sea and the skies- but this sudden storm couldn’t be mistaken for anything else to the people of Siram. The last time a storm of this scale had occurred had been the night her family had died; it was happening all over again, and somewhere in her mind she knew her people would recognize the cries echoing from the depths of the sea as her own.

Coeo had been the island he had taken Naili to, and rightfully so. It was the healer’s island after all. But from the look of Naili, so bloody and broken, Micah doubted anyone on Coeo could heal her sister. It would take the guardians, all four of them, which meant two things. Micah would have to pull herself together, and Sachiel would have to yell at her later. Caladrius brought them right to the hospital doors before Micah set off running. There was only one room equipped to stand even a chance at healing Naili, the biggest and best the hospital had to offer. She assumed Sachiel had taken her to this room. Most operations of this caliber were normally held underwater in the shrines, but Sachiel probably didn’t know that, and Naili was probably too out of it to say anything either. Even so, with all the strength she could gather, she sped to the room she could only hope they would be in. Emotions rippled and crashed inside of her as powerfully as the tides outside. A million thoughts jolted her head as she went, but she only acknowledged one thought as she burst into the brightly lit room. ‘I’m going to save you, sister.

Just as shallow as her breaths, Nailiah's heartbeat was the same. With each pump of the steadily weakening muscle, the pressure gauze upon her sides deepened with a red coating, getting more and more saturated with the blood of a princess. When would they tell her that her and Micah was sisters?! When it was too late to even do anything about it! How horrible is that?! If Nailiah had the energy, she would have to slap the taste out of some people's mouths. A tear tricked down the prone woman's face as pain made everything much more worse. She was going into shock! Her body started to tremble, but with her last bit of conscious strength, Nailiah reached up to grab Sachiel's arm, squeezing as tightly as her weakened state would allow. She opened her eyes, just barely beyond a crack just to see the man who always wanted to protect her. Who always found something good in her that she never saw. She only wished the other person who had her heart was here too; her beloved sister. A'Nailiah's normally bronze flesh was was ghostly and pale looking, like all of the pigments in her flesh had poured out of her sides. The only color that remained were blemishes, sores, and cuts across her body. Her eye was black, lip busted, broken bones, but through all of this, she still was able to offer Sachiel a quick smile before wincing in pain, wishing that she could scream the pain away. But, her body was too drained to even do that. Part of her wished that she never had left Siram, but a part of her was glad that she did. These people needed help, they need to understand that brutality civil unrest just wasn't the answer! She just wish she could have been strong enough.. After her winced smile, A'Nailiah's hand slipped from Sachiel's arm, getting limp and her eyes slipped closed.. Just as Micah was approaching...

As long as people exist... Violence will exist... This was the reality that Sachiel knew to be true. The reality that he had lived by his entire life; The reality that A'Nailiah had denied as truth. Now she had lived it, just as he had as a child. But she hadn't been as lucky as he had. He walked away with only a scar over his eye... Guilt filled his heart as he looked down at the Angel he had grown to adore. Why hadn't he been there to protect her? Why did he get to walk away, when she had to be carried?! His fists clenched as each question served as a blow to his chest, ripping at his insides like the claws of the Grand Dragon. His internal struggle was interrupted, however, when the woman grabbed hold of his arm. No matter how much he tried, he couldn't return her smile, however. She was frail, fragile in ways that he had never seen her before, and he hated it!He hated himself for it! And he hated everyone outside of Siram even more! His blood boiled at the thought... The people who did this would pay...

Then, she fell unconscious, and Sachiel fell to his knees beside her. "Naili..." he whispered, just as Micah came through the door. Of course, he knew at this point. The two were blood. Micah was the only blood relative the A'Nailiah had at this point, which meant that without her, there would be no hope. There was no place in Sachiel's heart for anger at this point. All he could hold onto was hope. He bowed his head to Micah as she came through the door. He then stood to his feet, and backed away from the bed in which Naili lay. He retreated to a wall, where he would be nearby, but not in the way. All he could do at this point was hope for the best...
