    Blue Skies [Private]

    Post by Jun on Thu Jun 15, 2017 4:18 pm

    It had been a few days since Matatabi had been rescued by the pretty Kazekage and her forces. Jun kept the crystal safely tucked away in his clothes out-of-sight. He wasn't sure if it was possible to have it stolen. He wasn't quite ready to accept the power Matatabi had given him - wanting to understand a bit more about magic itself before he tried to control such a power. He didn't want to be a liability after all...

    And so the boy had been hanging around Sunagakure for some time. Meeting with the people, talking to the locals to understand more and more about their culture. It was all quite fascinating to the boy. Never before had he seen so much sand in his life. He wasn't entirely fond of it, but he was able to deal with it for now. The Kazekage and the child from before were busy. Jun had noticed she had her own special powers to control, so it made sense that he hadn't someone available to bother with him for now.

    Now he just stood sitting atop one of the many rooftops. He wondered what he was gonna do with himself now...

    "Maker, dammit."

    He swore the gods for his torment. He rose from his sleep only to be cast into a village that was in no way his own home. He was an Uldorian, and by his rank and power, the eyes of the Gods. It was his duty to watch the world in places where the guardian could not. It was the knowledge that he gathered, as well as few others that would feed their master's intellect. It was only by their doing that the guardian of the realm could know of all things around their realm. With it, they could not keep a secret from them. But with their power, they gained parts of their master's knowledge as well. Some even knew the guardian's darkest secrets. . . Was he one of them?

    He rose from his rest, only to spring up on someone's sandy balcony. He grunted at the sight of sand for miles. He knew where he was, and to get back home would take a great while.

    "A boy." he thought to himself. "He has blood like the son of Death himself. Why must I seek him?"

    He would begin to climb the building he lay on to search. He could follow nothing but the only scent he could smell. He could see a trail, but with the sand, his guide was fuzzy, lost and confusing. He had a general idea of where he could be, but he could not pin point it.

    "Jun." he would repeat in his own mind. Who summoned Xa'Yang to this world? Why was he tasked with this boy?

    . .  .

    Why was this boy still alive?[/color]

    Jun continued to sit, dangling his feet off the edge of the balcony gently as he looked out across the desert region lost in thought. He couldn't help but be lost in a cloud of thoughts and ideas. He had seen much in the last couple of days. He had seen the darkness that could fill a person's heart. He had felt the despair one's decisions could hold in aftermaths. He had seen the love of a mother and her child. The world was full of such pain, yet also it held some beauty.

    He wondered why this world was the way it was. He wondered what their purpose was in being here in Pandora, what his purpose was in this place. People sounded confused, concerned with him when they spoke with him. They were scared for him as he was a child. Apparently children were to be protected, raised and nurtured by other,older people. And yet he had only ever known himself when he first came here. He hadn't a family to comfort him, to raise him. Or friends to laugh with or fight with when he first found himself in this world... whenever that was. Everyone he met came... after. Why was that?

    Who was his family? Had he ever had one? It was a question he often wondered. Why had he been alone then? It was a question he could not find an answer too. He knew only one thing. His name was Jun.

    When he arrived in Pandora, and traveled across its lands he found one of the Namizoku Clan, one of the many serving the Manji. They took him in for a bit and trained him a little, before they too disappeared. "Lady Arya," he recalled to himself in a soft whisper. She had been headstrong, strict, but kind. He was fond of her. They granted him a staff which had been custom-made for him to fit in his role for the Namizoku. It had been forged resembling a mage from long ago of great power, as they hoped he too would one day be himself for them.

    Now here he was just waiting. He didn't know what he wanted to do today. But he'd have to figure it out soon... can't let a whole day go by wasted.

    He would see a stream of color, only that in reality, it was wind and sand. To him, it was a red fogged trail. He would leap from the top of the building to land onto a ledge below. He would begin to sprint, his energy fading as he jumped and rolled from building to building. He could see the end of his trail led to the heart of the village, but where the boy was, would be a mystery. He could get close, but still he would not find him. . .

    But he would run and run, until the colors would fade. He would stand atop what seemed to be a tower, or a tall roof. He would look for any child or boy of the like. Surely he would know what he would look like when he saw the human. And surely he was human . . .

    "Jun Namizoku." he would say to himself. "Jun Namizoku. Jun Namizoku. Jun Namizoku. .  ." he would repeat it to himself over and over, his voice like a whisper in the wind. The streets were filled with few people here, and few there. He looked into all of their faces and figures from where he stood, and none would catch his attention. Where was the child? Why was he summoned?

    "Oh." he would think, "Perhaps this was the story they told me so many years ago  . .  ."

    Jun noticed up ahead was a man, or some kind of figure jumping from roof to roof looking for someone or something. It made him quite curious. What could be in such a rush today that they'd go jumping all over the place? What were they looking for? He couldn't help but be curious. The blue-haired child decided to stay out of it. Instead he continued what he was doing. Just dangling off the roof. It probably had nothing to do with him. He was but a simple wizard after all. Who would have business with him?

    Still. He kept watching the creature from afar for now. He found himself curious as to its mission.

    He could feel a set of eyes capture him. He would relax, as he could feel the curiosity rather than fear. "He is here." he would think to himself. Slowly, he would begin to rise tall and turn his head to scan the area.

    He would soon find a blue haired boy in the distance. With a hair color so bright, how did he miss him? "He's colored like a comic book main character . .  ." he would think to himself. He would begin to slowly make his way to the boy, leaping only when needed, his head turning every few steps or so to see his surroundings. He needed want any surprises to catch him.

    "Jun Namizoku." he would say within earshot. "You are-" he would sniff the air. Could it be? Did she-

    No.

    He knew what it meant. He knew why he was there. He knew what his task was. He didn't think she would ever-

    "You have the fragment." he would tell him as he neared. "Fear naught, Matatabi has summoned me here to teach you."

    Jun watched with a soft, innocent stare as the creature came closer and closer. It wasn't until the creature became more and more visible to him - his form and features recognized by the young boy - that he began to suspect that perhaps he was its target. Not knowing if this was a hunter or a messenger- Jun kept his guard up at all times. He stood up and stepped away from the ledge - lest the creature who approached be tempted to throw him off the rooftop. Jun was young, but not stupid. Especially after the kinds of things he had already seen in Pandora.

    The creature then called out his name. Perhaps it was seeking him specifically rather than what he held in his possession. Jun's guard was still raised, but he found himself rather intrigued. His face softened, his eyes relaxed as they calmly stared at him min wonder. For what reason could someone be looking for him? He didn't consider himself so important. It was then that the creature sniffed the air - as if it detected something. Not sure what was going on...Jun tilted his head in confusion as he watched him. All was made clear when the thing spoke once more. The thing he assumed was some kind of... Lizard?

    When the stranger mentioned the crystal - Jun's eyes widened. Tightly gripping his staff - the Requiem device charged and ready - Jun prepared himself for a possible attack. However the tension calmed as quickly as it came. It claimed to be sent by the Two-Tail Cat itself. Matatabi - the one who had gifted him the power. Jun smiled. "Ah is that right? That was kind of her," he said.

    "What's your name, mister?" he asked.

    If he was here to help the boy - it would be nice to know his name.

    "Xa'Yang." he would tell the boy, "Ssservant of the gods." he would let his lisp get the best of him.  A forked tongue had its downfalls.

    "But you have the same smell of the samurai." he would admit to the stench in the air, though only his snout would catch it. "A Namizoku is from the Manjo bloodline. And thus, you have royal blood in this land." He would cock his head, like a lost and curious puppy. "I will answer any question you have, both of the world, and of you, to the best of my ability."

    He had a long life of serving the guardians of the world. His life lost to ruin. There was no record of his duties, and stories of his ventures were never told or shared. Perhaps the age of Kaseki would allow him to make a mark on the realm as he tried so many years ago. If he was not to teach the half dragon woman, he would teach the boy the same power.

    Jun's eyes widened at the response. It sounded quite important. His guard lowered a little, but not entirely. A soft smile appeared on his innocent face. He listened as the Lizard spoke of him and his "scent". He smelled of the Samurai. He only knew one who fit that description. Yoshimitsu - the man he had been supposed to serve. The leader of the Manji Clan - who passed on his title to his son during the Iron Fist Tournament. Perhaps being around the Namizoku meant they shared similar scents? That seemed to be the only explanation he could conjure.

    He offered answers to questions the boy may have. Not sure if the man could truly answer his questions - Jun was hesitant. But still he felt it was important to try.

    "What is the purpose of Pandora? What is this world we live in? he started with. He wanted to understand his surroundings before he tried to make sense of himself.

    He would smile, he never would have expected that question to be asked first. "This is the land between lands, the world between worlds." he would pause, trying to find better words.

    "When you die, you come to this land. When yo teleport, you travel through this realm. And when you sleep, you live here for the time being. This is Pandora." he would laugh, "Our purpose? Under Anubis it was a resting place for lost souls before they were reborn or banished. Under Yama, we lived in ecstasy, but chaos. Under Hades, some lived peacefully for understanding, others lived for redemption. Under Kaseki, we live for peace, harmony, happiness, and redemption."

    He would laugh, almost creepy. "Kaseki too, shares your scent."

    Jun's eyes widened, gasped at the answer. It was not what he had expected in the least. The immenseness, the gravity of the answer was heavy. Not because the world itself was wrong by any capacity. But because according to the Lizard's understanding he had died in the world he lived in before. Such knowledge was scary. How did he die? Was that why he was alone, why he hadn't family? Did he die before them? Or long after them? It was these questions that troubled him.

    He hadn't processed the info of Kaseki's scent. That seemed strange to him. Wasn't Kaseki a god? At least by the way other spoke of him - that was what he had assumed. "So I died then? In the world before this one? Does that mean you don't know who my parents were?"

    "You are not dead." he would tell the boy, "In short, places of other worlds would dragged here. And now, in this era under Kaseki, the living coexist with the dead." The answer itself seemed odd to hear, even though he knew the truth his whole life. For once, something seemed off.

    "I know you are a Manji." he would tell him, "Well, less pure of such, as your aroma is mixed. young Yoshimitsu and Kaseki both have the scent of the pure. Perhaps you were raised by them?" he would lift his hand to point at the staff, "But their tradition kept sacred, you perhaps were chosen by the family?"

    He would tilt his head in question, lost in his own thought. "In any case, you, here, are of the royal bloodline, however distant, and it is my duty to protect those of the kin."
