Ayroehl was nearly buzzing with nervous energy, checking over the buckles and straps on Jinx's gear for the sixth time that hour. Jesses, ankle straps, the small cap that helped keep her calm...back and forth between each of her birds, she busied herself with making silent preparation, her artificial halo for once not the angry, spiked ring it had been for the past week. The change was almost jarring.
Remaining neutral had been the plan of both Iphae and Seethe. While both of them had contacts in Ichorrai and did most of their work from the city in question, neither wanted to get involved in the politics of this war. But the talk of a grand battle was tempting. Especially to Seethe.
We should make an exception for this one fight Seethe was quick to suggest once word reached his ears.
What for? Seems like more trouble than it's worth. Iphae wasn't convinced.
The skiving immanu elbowed his leyr companion in the side. To the victor go the spoils. That could be you and I big guy. Send those pesky rodents scurrying back to their dingy hole in the ground and I'm sure Aelius will be quick to hand out rewards.
Hmph. Iphae responded indignantly. And if Ichorrai loses?
Seethe clasped his hands together, a grin spreading across his lips. Ah well, there will be plenty of corpses to pick over nonetheless. We'll gather what we can and take to the wind.
even though my character has been going with the ynochrin path in prompts so far, I'm going to support ichorrai!
Veraiddhel is staying out of things, he's very alarmed by what he's heard about the state of Ichorrai but he doesn't want to fight for the chimoraa either. In truth, he really just wishes this wasn't happening at all... but since it is, he's hoping to find safety in Immitheus.
Ruin was ready to fight. He wore an old pauldron over his left shoulder, with matching worn bracers and shin guards. Strapped to his back were a pair of short swords, crafted out of a black metal, and sheathed in red treated leather. Their pommels were shaped like old earth animals whos names were now forgotten.
His tail twitches with anticipation as he moves about with the assembled Aegis. He moves with the same sense of presence as the they do, patrolling the perimeter with the guards, keeping an eye on the horizon. He doesn't speak to anyone who tries to address him, taking everything seriously, which is new for any who know him. His motives are his own, though prior to this event, he has mentioned a love for fighting.
He comes to see the outcome of this battle, and to lay his swords down upon history in the making.
Arron stands with Ichorrai, his home. As a member of the Aegis, he would not dare turn his back on his fellow guardians or Aelius. He hurries to Kinstead, ready to defend the outpost.
Chichindra stands with Ichorrai because she grew up there and sees it as her home. While she cannot fight she has her own childish respect of Aelius and will do what she can to help in the war effort.
Hen also sees Ichorrai as his home, despite leaning towards the more neutral side, it's where he was raised and he doesn't trust the chimoraa at all.
Overall I stand with Ichorrai!!
It's not that I necessarily believe Ichorrai is flawless. This city is full of things I disapprove of, and I'd be a fool to say there aren't parts of the Chimoraa prophecy that I agree with...
She shifts uncomfortably, falling into thoughtful silence for a time.
But I want to be where I can be of the most help. And I think that's here. I believe in Aelius, at the very least.
She lowers her voice.
It's caused some strife in my, um, relationship. But even the people I know who don't support Ichorrai aren't eager to throw their weight behind the Chimoraa. This has to be the best choice of the ones we have, I'm sure of it.
Ooc but i'll be siding with Ichorrai!
/ooc I will be siding with Ichorra!
Virrimauth, having lived nearby for the majority of his life would of course support Ichorrai. Even if he much preferred spending time outside of the city, there were many individuals in the city that he would search for, wanting to make sure that they were okay. If it came to it, the first thing on his mind would be to protect those that he cared about, even risking his life.
Likely as soon as he heard that something was happening, he would check on his closest friends, and whether they were staying behind to fight or traveling to Immitheus would affect his next move.
