The Alternative Team
Everyone on Icarus knows Wind types are impulsive,
changing their opinion so
frequently they seem to have none at all. Yet what Breeze did was so rash
she would never be forgotten.
Breeze was a normal looking child. Small and white, with curly hair and
freckles. But her mind was far ahead of her age. Too smart for her own good
some would say.
Precocious children normally don't get bored, because there is always something to
grasp their attention....but not that day. Breeze felt weird, nervous, all
the things she thought up to do she dismissed. She didn't even want to go
swimming with the other children, something she normally never refused.
She played the mirror game, where she spied a place in her folded mirror and
then went looking for it, only to move on after a new look in the reflective
surface. As mature as she was, she was still a child and ended up getting
lost. Somehow she'd gotten close to a Castle though and it so happened that
a clutch had hatched and the mind pairing ceremony was taken place right at
Rash as always, Breeze decided she would go watch. She wormed her way
through a crack and snuck inside. The mother came out and the Draklings followed. She
held her breath, which of the aspirants would mind pair and which wouldn't?
There were far too many aspirants for that small clutch of 5 eggs sired by
Water Adeki and Ore Moreni. The mother named the first, the second and so
on, until the last, a small water dragon, was the only one left. Her mother
named her Leniki, and that drakling came up
to her and stroked her legs.
It was only at that time most spectators noticed her, not knowing what to say,
she could only accept the mind pair of the little drak. For a moment she
worried about getting scolded or punished, but that didn't last long. This was an
exciting new adventure that would keep her occupied forever.
It was also at that day that she saw Zander for the
first time. He came running in
from the North, shouting about Nex Necii in the desert...She barely noticed
or what he was saying, lost in the care for her drak. Yet she did pick up on
the nervousness of the residents later.
Leniki was a good student and seemed to instantly grasp some aspects of her
knight. Once Breeze had asked Leniki
why a caring water drak had chosen her of all the people gathered at the
"You were the one who needed me most." She said, not making any sense to Breeze.
Leniki, sensing her message hadn't come through explained
"The only thing stable on you was your instability, but that was infinite.
Like water you were constantly shifting and moving but at the same time
staying your true self. You were perfect for me."
When Leniki was a Squire, Zander approached her, with his recently hatched
Perini, Leniki's halfbrother, to ask if she would join his expedition to a
place he called The Desert Castle. When he explained it to her, she couldn't
refuse, it was such a great opportunity for her. Somewhere she could start
from scratch, somewhere she could change however she felt it needed to be
changed. She understood there were only 10 knights coming, 4 of which would
leave once the 6 others had reached full maturity. They would be the only
ones protecting the 62 humans that would help build the castle and it's
inner gardens. The excitement of her job hasn't faded since.
