People hurried down to the relative cool of the Deep Cavern where Water
Nishi had announced that her draklings had hatched. She was still holed up
in the room, the door closed while she named her children and told them
whatever a drak mother told her newborn children. Humans had never witnessed
that moment so it was anyone's guess.
Meanwhile the aspirants were brought in. Three women and four men stood
waiting. All had been judged across Icarus though two of them had come from
a different worl and had appeared on Icarus by presumably magical means.
Haile, a young aspiring medical student and Flint a somewhat geeky man with
glasses still felt a bit out of their element waiting for the draklings to
come out. The other five were born and raised on Icarus. Taahira, dressed in
her usually brightly coloured garments, looked excited, while Maira was
determined to make it this time and earn her her father's respect. Leed, who
wanted to stay close to Maira, had come from the new Yavier Castle and was
looking to pair a drak to flesh out their ranks. Edvard then was a courier
and mountaineer who wanted a companion and Ennio was a chef in training
who'd wound up judged somehow while around Castle DesCas.
Finally, when night was approaching, the doors to the Deep Cavern opened and
Water Nishi led her 5 draklings out. They followed her in a neat line of
awkward baby cute, with wingsails tangling and the odd tripping over their
own feet but the small parade managed to reach the spectators without much
"You have been judged by ourss."
Nishi spoke, "But it isz them that will do the
The last drakling, a female green and brown forest, scurried
across the room and put her head on Taahira's hand, sniffing at the scents
of her many shawls. Picking up sand, sea and fire, the smells from the
"My name is Allayahi." she
Nishi and Defaya bowed to the new squires who'd paired their offspring and
wished them well as they all made their way to the waiting buffet where the
new pairs mingled with the available trainers, forming their first
alliances. Some would stay, most would move across Icarus but they'd stay
together at DesCas for a little while longer.
Trainer: Tatar & Plant Xaokiki
Allayahi went around the armada and
spoke to all draks present. She took her training as a diplomat seriously
but generally just made small-talk with the resident knights to gauge
their level of satisfaction and happiness. Most knight pairs were local
and knew where to go when they wanted a new challenge or some time off to
recuperate. Still Allayahi planted some seeds where she felt they were
Alongside her, Taahira was doing much the same, speaking to the human part
of the knight pairs and helping them relax and open up to her suggestions.
Today Taahira and Allayahi were doing their job in the Desert Light
Armada, the armada they had only recently joined. And they had one last
pair to check.
Taahira smiled happily when she saw Dahmura, stonefaced and stern like
usual, and his earth drak Hyalos return from their own patrol task. She
waved and Allayahi gave a welcoming call.
Not much later Hyalos pranced toward them, nuzzling his mate when he
"Id say he's happy." Dahmura joked because he knew Taahira would
have to report that.
"And what about you kind sir?" She smirked.
"That depends. Do we have anything planned tonight?"
"I can arrange diner." Taahira said, "And maybe dancing or
would you prefer to stay in?"
"Let me tell you after dinner." Dahmura decided and followed her
to their joint rooms.
Taahira and Forest Allayahi joined the Desert Light Armada at DesCas.
Allayahi found a life mate in Earth Hyalos
