Aetherneal: Soulbound [Book One] Edit
Elaru Wayvin and Kiel Rroda were engaged in an intense battle in Zerean ruins with a mage. Unlike Kiel, she hardly have enough scratch on her despite the few scratches on her clothes. When Kiel destroyed the mana crystals that powered the daggers, she charged toward her opponent straight-on because the density of her mana weakened the daggers that targeted her. Before she could strike a move on her opponent, Kiel used his new move that collapsed the ancient ground of the ruins.
For the past few days, Elaru had been spying on Kiel. She sat on the highest pillar of the canyon at the same spot from dawn to dusk. When she found Kiel approaching him, she smiled and wondered what he was trying to do when he approaches her. She decided to make the first move and approach him silently with her mana concealed. When she called to his attention, she offered to help Kiel to become a student of Muni and a first class-mage. Kiel asked her how did she came to the conclusion that he needed her help. She pointed how he was born into the Rroda Family and how strange it was for him to not apply for Muni despite his thirst for the knowledge of magic. Kiel denied her and she then pointed how he truly was on the inside.
She even found out that Kiel only had little mana for him to become a sufficient mage. Kiel quickly ran away from her afterward. While he ran, Elaru simply just waited until he stopped running in circles and then quickly caught up to him by seeing his mana with her divine sight. She healed his tired body and explained how amazing Kiel's skills are as a mage and how lucky he born into a mage family that he was able to develop the skills he had. They then said goodbye to each other and agreed to meet each other again the next day.
Elaru was waiting for Kiel and was concerned of the thought of him not coming. She was glad for him to show up and shaped the earth into two earth stools for them to sit as they converse. Before Kiel started questioning her, she voluntarily signed an Oath of Truth to herself that disabling her to lie. She barely revealed anything about her despite the fact she could not lie. The only she revealed was that she not under any family banners and she was a quest seeker that do legal quests according to her. She also told Kiel about her Aethernea of Sight could be able to locate someone's mana.
Kiel pointed that Elaru is a tracker with her divine sight and she did admit that she spent a lot of time tracking down artifacts. She told Kiel the secret behind the markings of an elibu that was the trigger for the ancient oath, Aetherneal Bond. She obtained the information from the Arite Family that was casting the trigger for their own purpose. If anyone else knew they possess such knowledge, it will mean death for those who know the Aetherneal Bond. She explained the effects of the bond. She believed her encounter with Kiel was not luck but destiny.
In conversation, Elaru mentions several family members whose status is unknown:
- Her father
- Her grandfather
- Her cousin Wade Wayvin
Wade Wayvin Edit
Her father Edit
Not much is known about her father but Elaru looked up to her father with admiration and love. She even call her father "papa."
Kiel is her Aethernea Bond's soulmate. Elaru was always there to help Kiel whenever she could. She stated that Kiel is now one of the most important person in her life because their souls are linked to each other now. Even though Elaru saw through his true nature, she accepted the way he is as a person. She also like to tease him and seem amused by his reactions and expressions. Elaru was able to see Kiel to be similar as her on some level.
Abilities and Skills Edit
Elaru Wayvin was a very talented and strong mage and she also have the possession of the Aethernea of Sight. She was considered a genius according to her father and even Kiel complimented her many times of how skilled she was as a mage.
- Aethernea of Sight: She possess the fabled eyes that can see magic. She was able to see mana from living things and also identify the color of living creatures. However because she could see the color of living creatures, she could not tell the difference between mana source that has the same color as each other. Depnending on her state of mind and point of focus, her radius of her vision narrows to half a mile radius when she is not paying attention or sleeping. Her gift could be also use for identifying spell pattern.
- Healing Magic: She was shown to be proficient in healing magic because she was able to heal Kiel's fatigue body. She was able to energize his tied cells with hydration and oxygen and fix damage to the muscles. That type of spell is considered complex requiring high precision and mana drain.
- Mana Pool & Mana Regeneration: Elaru's mana is so dense that whatever objects or living creature would be damaged from the density of her mana. She usually tries to push her mana away from the object that came in contact with her if she do not have intention harming it. She even have more than enough mana for her and Kiel to use together and boasted that no other elibu could have more mana at disposal than her.
- (To Kiel) "Friendship and love might fade. Allies might become enemies. But... as long as you remain my friend, my ally, I will remain yours. You can trust that I will not betray you unless you betray me first. You can trust that I will guard your back. You can trust that I will help you to the best of my ability. You can trust that your enemies will be my enemies. That your troubles will be my troubles."
