    - Wing Color: Her wing color is a pretty simple lilac purple, the trines of each wing a shade darker than the actual wing itself, Though the color itself is actually bold it appears pale and translucent due to the wings flesh, her wings as thin like paper, fragile and elegant.

    Body Type & Physical Condition: She is small and lean, her body toned even if small. She is the peak of health.

    Physical Abilities & Limitations:Due to Theo being Fae she can fly/Hover over great distances, though being so small she find it hard to walk the distances she needs to cover, enjoying a stroll from time to time. Though being small also gives her an advantage, she can hide in the most random places, Under hats in holes, though she prefer not to hide in said holes.

    Physical Illnesses & Afflictions: When Theo first embarked on her journey she traveled to a place known as Howldon, Upon reaching its boarders Theos body felt as though it was shutting down and decomposing itself, Self destruction, not exploding but imploding on herself, Moving away from the Built up city caused her completion to return to normal and her body to loosen up, the pain leaving her, she learned after being cut off from nature for too long or wandering too far away from it, her body slowly starts to degrade.

    Physical Imperfections: None that she knows of just yet..

    Clothing style:Theos clothing sytle is rather extragant. From head to toe.

    Hat - Theos hat is made from a leaf fallen from a great oak rooted in her home town Asrai, Its folded in a such a way to shape her head perfectly and almost appear as a top hat, though the color is a rich green it seemed too bland for her and she sought decoration, after months she found a small cluster of animal bones, from the looks of it they came from field mice small enough and light enough to be held on her hat, stringing them together with vines she tied it around the top of the hat creating not only her own style but a perfect shape.

    Top - Her top is another of her own designs, crafted from the leaves of the same oak, and the back of 3 beetles shell, the leaves sit in the center strung together with the vines she bound the beetles shells to the center, shaping them with rocks, she made two small cups for her bust, the torso which she spined, though the top does not give her much flexibility she liked it for some time but after a while blending into the surroundings didn't quiet make it for her and so using elder berry a vivid red berry found within the wilderness she used the sap from a near by tree and died some moss a bright red color, using the sap like a glue she lined her bust and also added what could be considered buttons.

    Belt - Her belt is one of her most interesting designs to date. Made from the bark of a tree she crafted it around her waist, at the center of her belt lies a chicks skull, the belts itself is decorated plainly with a countless rings of dirt all holding a small yellow stone in the center, though saying the belt itself is plain the accessories added it to it are much more, On her right side she has a small stuffed toy, the body made fro shredded bark so its rough but also flexiable and the insides stuffed with moss, two small buttons for its eyes and vines stitched for lips, and other little details, the moss being stuffed inside had taken its toll on the old toy, causing the bark to turn a murky green. Also on the right side hanging from a cotton like vine is a small birds claw, the left claw hangs on her left side along with two grey feathers symbolizing from what she can tell a mixture of Raven and Aria.

    Skirt - Her skirt is pretty nice, The petals of a Violet flower stringed together by vine, the petals hang in a south position and fall to around her knees, The Skirt itself is in 5 parts, falling around her legs in all directions, the ends curling up, Once again Theo used sap but this time she coated the petals lightly preserving them longer though as time goes by the petals themselves will begin to curl more and once the petals become too short for her wear she will attire new ones.

    Boots - Made from the Leaf of a Magnolia tree she held them in mud for a couple of days until they were firm, wrapping them around her legs she stringed one side with vine, before gaining another beetle shell she carved out two small heels and platforms, stringing them to the bottom of the Magnolia leaves she made the soles of her shoes as well as the sock, With vines she wrapped around them, cutting small squares of bark from a near by evergreen she decorated her shoes with buckle like attire.

    Accessories - Theo wears a vine around her neck with 2 small bones on either side of 3 stones, Each stone for her represents a different thing, The one the right is taken from her home land, Arisa, the second from Riv-Amar and the third from a place she wishes never to return too though she did not make it into the city only the outskirts she still took a stone from Howldon. On her right arm she wears a tree bark band decorated with small blue gems, what they are she don't know but they caught her eye, also as decoration she added a evergreen leaf, a leaf which never changes color and a auburn leaf, one close to the end of its life. She wears a pair of gloves made from Olive leaves, A dark Green almost black covers her wrists and hands, the tips of the fingers removed and her red nails producing from them.

    Distinguishing Features:Theo's most distinguishing feature is her wings. In some lights they appear a deep purple color almost opaque while in others they seem to vanish and turn into light itself.

    Voice:Theo's voice is child like, Small and chime like, its pitch is rather high but when speaking every note contains emotion, mostly excitement.

    Transformation: N/A



    III. Mental



    Alignment: Neutral

    Outer Goals:Theo wishes to travel the world, seeing everything Fae Possible, She wants to go on adventures collect stories, meet new people, though proven hard so far, she strives for the excitement of new places, new faces and new things to learn, though staying close to nature along the way.

    Inner Goals:Though traveling and learning may be something she will declare to anyone and everyone, her ambition to go all over the world, the reason she is traveling is something she wishes not to share, Though both inner and outer goal in a sense is the same, traveling has a hidden meaning to Theo, she thinks while traveling she will meet people, see things and in some way find her self, find out who she is, why she is here and become knowledgeable not just about herself but others, she wishes to interact with people, not just Fae.

    Super Objective:To live, is the one objective she wishes to meet, living is not just breathing, seeing, hearing, touching or feeling, To live is to take on anything with every emotion, whether bad or good, to see things not just infront of you but beyond your own limitations, To breath not your own air, the air of your race but all airs which is shared with others, to hear the words of loved ones, hated ones and ones who could bring about your own demise, To touch the hearts of others and Unite them.

    Defining Characteristic: A lot of things could define Theo, her bravery is known to only her, she faces everything with a smile "Laughing in the face of your fears with make them seem less scary" or so she tells herself every time something does shake her up, due to this she can brave in the face of any situation. Another thing that could define her could be her Loyalty to nature, She even wears it as clothing, Her honesty, she has never told a lie to anyone though that could be the fact she does not know of anyone to spills lies too. Her sense of adventure is one of her greatest characteristics, She just loves having fun no matter where she goes, seeing things from history, to every day events, to things which are planned in the future. She has a defiance about her that she can accomplish anything she sets her mind too and refuses to fail.

    Likes/Dislikes:Theo likes nothing at all, she loves, like and dislike is not terms in her mind, if you cant love something with your whole heart then its not worth going after, She loves Learning Magic, She loves exploring, Writing, Reading, Talking, Listening, Playing, being taught things she did not know before, Drinking, eating, even the small day to day activities such as Dressing, Eating, Washing, Drinking.

    Theo tries to love everything but there is a single thing she dislikes, no not dislikes but hates, Holes, Being small she can hide and she once did in a hole, inside the hole was a spider as big, if not bigger than herself, getting caught in the spiders web was one of the most fearful things that had happened to her but while laughing to rid herself of fears she managed to escape the web, knowing now if she had panicked she would not be here today but the very memory of those 12 beady eyes, long pincer fangs and eight very very very very hairy legs, made her hate holes

    Hopes/Desires:She hopes to accomplish everything she sets out to, Traveling and Learning Magick she desires to be the best Fae Mage to exist.

    Fears/Phobias: Theo fears Failing and holes, because Holes being her biggest fear and the one thing she dislikes she sees it as a omen, Failing would resort to a situation just like the one she experience that day in the hole.

    Sexual Orientation: Theo isn't sure, She does not find herself Attracted to female Fae but she was forbidden as a child to see Male Fae so she really has no idea.

    Dirty Secrets: She has none that shes willing to tell curious people.

    Introvert or Extrovert: Extrovert

    More Thinking or Feeling:Theo acts on feeling alone, thinking only causes unwanted situations to arise, Live with your heart not your head.

    Selfish or Selfless:Theo as far as she thinks is selfless she will do what she can for others but in a sense making others happy and depends on her brings her a step closer to her true objective so maybe she is selfish.

    Attitudes Toward:
    - Self:Theo Loves herself, She is happy with who she is and wouldn't want to change a thing, well maybe she would want to grow a little taller but that will come in time, or so she hopes, She does not think Negative towards herself and is proud of all shes done (Not a lot) and intends to be proud of everything she does in future (What, who knows!)

    - Others:Others and Fae are like chalk and cheese, doesn't work, shouldn't even be attempted, or so a lot think though a while ago her views changed, how can anyone expect to be accepted if you aren't willing to accept them first? So her views on others changed from the stereotype image she grew up with, breaking that boundaries was one of the best things she had done as she had met many interesting characters along her journey, she wishes to learn about all races even those who do not accept hers.

    - Friendship:Theo has never known such a thing, Friendship is like being United another thing she has never known to be around her, shunned while in Asria due to her rather weird out look on life she was labeled a contradiction to all things Fae. Maybe now having left the hollows of her home she will find it?

    - Love: Is only given to her by one, her teacher, her guide, her stand in for a mother, though she doubts her teacher ever thought of herself as Theos mother, but Theo could think so couldn't she?

    - Religion: She whorships her religion, Illudim, Her faith in it will never falter, if it did it would mean she would have to lose faith in her family, her race, her upbringing and most importantly her mother like figure. The Muse who teaches her Magicks.

    - Country: Her country is nature, and Nature is what she loves, what she breaths and where she feels at home, Nature is a part of Theo therefore her country is.

    - The World:She hasn't seen a lot of the world to think of it as anything other than a playground waiting to be played in, A uncharted territory for her to discover, an adventure just for her.

    Superstitions: She believes failure always ends up in a hole.

    Admirable Traits: Theo is outgoing and its something to be admired when she puts herself to work, failure is not something she likes to know so she attempts to succeed in everything she does. Being outgoing also means when helping people she does it to the best of her ability.

    Negative Traits: Some will say Theo is a bit full of herself, due to the face she accepts anything and will try anything at least once, even if its not normal to do so.

    Prejudices: None.

    Most Painful Things in Their Life: Howldon.

    Mental Disturbances: She doesn't have any Mental disturbances even though at times when shes walking around it appears as though she is speaking to herself.

    Philosophy of Life: "Never fail"



    IV. Skills & Talents


    Talents:
    Flying - Being Fae, Theo was born with wings though having wings does not mean she can fly, Fae wings are bound with magick but without control over the magick, or having learned it flight is impossible, some fae can hover over a small distance where as others who have learned and progressed can fly over great distances at a height they choose. Theo can fly for around an hour at full speed before her wings grow heavy and use of them takes its toll, though she can hover for around 6 hours before she needs to rest for a while.

    Speed and agility - Being a being with wings, speed is a given Grown Fae, or Fae who have mastered Flying to the greatest extent can move quickly, as if disappearing and turning into a blaze of light, unless someone is accustom to the movements of a Fae its very hard to see and determine where the Fae is or where its moving, Though Theo hasn't progressed this far she can move pretty fast, her agility isn't;t as great as some but greater than most, being able to maneuver around obstacles quickly, hide in the smallest of places without being seen due to her height, Being a Fae has its advantages.

    Magick Capabilities - Fae are beings who are blessed with Magic, As most Fae believe they are the sole race born with Magick capabilities most choose not to worship those who gave creation to it, Deities and such are respected but as Fae are born from a source of magick itself they do not see the need to worship them. Theo does not believe this and holds religion greatly unlike most but this is because her Magick is low at current, though she has a young mind and a great thirst for learning she is currently being taught magic from a Muse (See below for details), Her own Capabilities are not that much but as the Muse who teaches her blesses her with the use of magick, not only do Theo not know her limits but the Magick itself does not take a toll on her life span or drive her to Insanity currently.

    Conversing with Muses - Fae are connected to nature and because of this they have a strong connection to spirits of Nature, A spirit of Nature is a Muse, Muses are found guarding and tending to any kind of Nature and are a great source of magick themselves, Dwelling between dreaming and the world Fae live in. Fae are connected to these beings though some races may be able to sense there presence and others may be able to see them, Fae have the strongest connection with them. Some like Theo has even gotten to the point where they can converse with them.


    Skills:

    Air Magic. - Theo is able to channel air, by adding magic to this things that can abnormal can be produced.

    • Flight - Being able to manipulate the air around her, using the gas provided in the air she is able to accumulate it around her wings giving her flight, though not experienced enough Theo can not fly high or for long distances yet but hopefully in the future she will be able to progress.
    • Mask - Once again by Manipulating the gas in the air around her she creates a sphere of oxygen around her head, though it may sound silly to do so it comes in handy when Theo has to climb to high altitudes or travel underwater when needing to get to a destination.
    • The calling - As simple as it sounds, Theo uses the air to project her voice when calling for Gilly. Doing so she allows her voice to travel in many directions when shes in need. Also another form is that she can bring sounds to herself, Sound travels through the air and depending on the flow can be heard over great distances, this is how Theo learns to distinguish between built up areas and Nature, in order to find out how close she is to her destinations or how far she has to travel.




    V. Social


    Political Alignment: None
    Religion: Illudim
    Job/Class: Rouge Fae
    Family: None.
    Relationships: None.

    Noted accomplishments: None.
    - Famous/infamous: Infamous.


    Hobbies: Theo has a lot of hobbies but the main thing she likes to participate in is Travel ling, exploring and adventures. Though she also likes: Hunting, Learning about cultures and Nyxheim itself, The history of Muses and all there kinds, Studying and practicing Magick with her mentor, Cooking and making clothes and also spending time with the loveable Gilly.

    Pets:
    Gilly
    Sugar Gliders is a small animal which is rarely seen within Nyx, They are a social animal and is normally found in pairs, the pair is not necessarily another of its kind but it enjoys the company of others, Theo's sugar glider came to her one day and hasn't left yet, Naming it Gilly she loves the small cute animal, Gilly is a omnivore, The sugar glider has very thick soft grey mink-like fur with a black stripe that runs the full length of the body in line with the spine. This black stripe extends up and over the top of the head. The last couple of inches of the tail are also black. The glider also has dramatic black markings on the face, legs and back.

    Theo uses Gilly for a lot of things, due to not being able to fly over great distances, gilly assists her in most of her traveling, while his main use would be company he comes in handy for all sorts of things, being able to fly or rather hover to the ground makes it easier for Theo to get from tree top floor, being small it has the same advantages as Theos height but also this little fellow is quiet powerful and fast despite its cuteness it can be vicious if feels threatened, using its claws and teeth as weapons just like Fae.

    Material:
    - Weaponry, Armory, and Inventory:
    Weaponry - Theo does not carry weapons per say but she does carry two small carving knifes, This is mainly used for cutting berries from plant life, on odd occasions when hunting to kill an animal depending on how much it struggles, in some sense it can be used as a weapon but Theo doubts a Fae sized knife can do any damage to others apart from the small animals she feeds from. She also carries Pine needles, though not thought of as a weapon when combined with a blow pipe it could be one, though it will feel nothing more than a pin prick to most.

    Armory - Theo's armor can not really be classed as armor, she wears clothes made from the shell of a beetle though hard for an insect and someone her size, if a normal sized being stepped upon it, it would probably shatter, therefore she doesn't really call it Armor just clothing that would protect her against someone her size.
    Inventory - Theo Carries a small Blow pipe and pine needles everywhere she goes, if hitting the right point on an animal she can paralyze them. Also she carries an assortment of string like vines, small and thin incase any of her clothes breaks she can repair or replace them.

    - Wealth/Possessions: Theo has no wealth and a lot of wealth as she lives off nature even though she does not posses it she feels as though she can be and create anything from it.

    - Land: Theo does not have land of her own, after leaving her homeland all right to land had been cut.


    Educations in:
    Hunting - At a young age Theo watched the older Fae hunt for small animals, being fascinated by acts she begged the elder Fae for lessons on how to track, sense and predict animals, after a couple of years she had learned how to scout for food and collect it in a tidy and painless manner.

    Survival- Theo has never thought of how it would be to die and because of this the elders saw that she had a great sense of life and to help aid in her plans to live life to the fullest she was taught how to evade and escape danger, how to find shelter in the wilderness and how to survive when animal life was non-existent. How to create fire without magick and how to care for herself, cover and clean wounds and navigate her way through treacherous terrain.

    Weaponry- being a strong race, Fae themselves while being small are strong, being able to lift 3 times their body weight, she was taught how to lift and move weapons in a fashion that makes it easier for her, throwing swords and such is impossible for her but swinging it over her head is something she can do, also taught how to create small sharp needles from trees and shoot them throw a blow pipe.

    Climbing - Theo was taught how to climb trees, rocks and other huge structures in a safe manner, checking for foot holes until it became almost instinct.

    Crafting - Taught by the older generation Theo learned the art of crafting, using the nature around her to create things like, clothes, shoes, accessories, places to dwell, weapons, shields.

    - Languages Spoken: Fae, Avarin, Eldarin

    - Literacy: Theo while at home with the other Fae has studied the history of Nyx among other things gathered from the Elven library, such as books on other races, Maps and Geography, history of other races, religions, mostly avoiding things about her own race she focused on the others in order to learn how to interact and be comfortable around them, the downside being some of the races seem to discriminate against others.

    VI. Background/ History



    Asrai and Theo's childhood.
    Within the depths of Evergreen a city called Asrai resided, this city to most could be called small but for its inhabitance it could be considered huge. Asrai is filled with small creatures called fae, though elves and a small number of other beings live there majority of the inhabitance are Fae. though the exact number can't be told due to their size. They range between 4 inches and 6, sprouting small wings these beings are connected to nature and there appearances mirror such. Building there houses in small burrows in the hillside and in trees they live happy lives. In one of these trees a family of nine live, two full grown Fae and six small children the seventh just being born, this child with Multicolored hair and vivid green eyes had just been bought into the world, her parents had named her Theorn, Why she was called theorn was due to the small little nails, sharper than most newborns and the brown tint to her skin, resembling brambles but Bramble was the name of her sister so she could not be called such a thing. Theorn had been bought into the world and would live in it like every other Fae or so her parents thought.

    Many years passed and Theorn grew, progressing through life she learned to walk, talk and communicate with others, over this time she also grew small wings, and acquired a very unique personality, a thirst for knowledge and adventure. At age seven Theorn's teachings began. Fae were taught by the elders of there race and from books within from her neighbors within the Elven library. Learning about different races from these books as well as her own she felt she had become knowledgeable but deep down a stirring occurred, one which would lead her onto the path of life. Being taught wasn't the hardest thing in her life as she strived for the challenge and disliked failure, failure is something she would not accept in her life so everything thrown at her she completed, whether perfectly or not she always done everything instructed. As time went by she mastered certain skills such as Hunting, Cooking, Cleaning, Survival, Swimming and climbing. As time went by she was trained to use nature as her weapon, crafting such weapons from the wilderness as well as things which she needed for survival. This was her childhood, no times for games or making friends, Theorn kept her head down and studied, learned everything she needed for the future she would embark on, being the youngest of six others she was held in high regard to follow that which her siblings had. Teaching, Hunting, being part of the various groups around there community but Theo wanted much more and so when Theo reached the age of twelve she proposed such a thing to her parents. She wished to leave the Village and explore but leaving the village and its teaching was considered something like betrayal but she made that choice and would follow it through even if it meant being exiled and labeled a rouge Fae. Two weeks after the proposal she left, nothing but the clothes on her back, she entered the vast wilderness of Evergreen.


    The start of a journey.

    Walking out of the city was the hardest yet easiest choice Theo had ever had to make. She longed to be with her family, or at least a couple of them but she wished for freedom. Living in Asrai and following the rules and tradition made it feel as though Theo was a bird in a cage, without a mind of her own, following those elders who had passed long ago, not changing with the times. Theo let her feet guide her into the vast and daunting forest before her, she could still hear the farewell of those neighbors who had bid her farewell at the boundaries of the city. She would not cry this was her choice, she would use this to discover the world and hopefully somewhere deep inside she hoped that she would make friends. She walked for what seemed like months, during the day she would feed from small animals she was able to catch, fish from near rivers, wrapping what she did not eat in small leaves and creating packages, taking it with her along her journey. Life alone was lonely but in nature she always seemed to sense a strange presence.

    On the third month a storm raged within Evergreen, Theo being away from her home and family had no shelter or no one to instruct her on what she should do, she had never known a storm like this, traveling as fast as her small legs could carry she searched, her head turning in every direction for a burrow, a hole in a tree she could reach without effort, but none came into view, rain water now soaked her clothes, thunder vibrated within her head and lightning blinded her every time it lit up the sky above, in dense darkness she felt alone, almost regretting her decision to leave but there was no way back now, shaking her head and in the process sending a scatter of rain drops everywhere she took to finding the safest and quickest way to shelter, Moving deeper into the forest, why she did not know but something was telling her too, instinct maybe? the pull in her stomach telling her if she kept going she would be safe, her feet plowing through slushy mud made it harder to walk, but she continued forward, forging her path.

    After walking until her legs ached a huge opening in the side of a hill came into view, it could be home to some monster for all she knew but it was shelter as long as she kept herself hidden while moving into the opening she would safe. The moment she stepped into the cave, over the invisible threshold it held warm air hit her, warming her up instantly, almost drying the tattered clothes she was wearing, the change in temperature caused her to shiver. Instinct pulled her once again, deeper into the cave, keeping close to the jagged walls she walked slowly down the large tunnel, a tunnel which looked as if it could go on forever to the center of the earth, after an hour of walking the tunnel expanded, grew higher and wider, no longer arrow the tunnel came to an end, opening into an area quiet spacious yet for some reason a vortex of wind filled it, it sounded as though the wind was crying, by just standing on the sidelines and feeling the force of this wind she felt sad, her heart yearned to comfort the wind and cheer it up but such a thing wasn't possible, the wind did have emotion and wasn't something you could sympathies with or console. Closing her eyes she muttered her apologies, taking pity on the wind, at this it grew stronger but the subdues to a warm breeze once again, A faint figure now stood in the center of the room, floating above what appeared to be a small figure, Mesmerized Theo watched the events taking place before her.

    The meeting of the Muse.

    The figure floating above the being below had a sad expression while the one below was smiling up at the figure "Do not be sad, everyone's life comes to an end. It was a shame i found you at such a late time in my life. If i would have known of your existence and the love i would gain for you i would have come, come to you sooner" Tears, or what Theo thought was tears slid down the males face, the male looked as though his life was about to end but he was smiling, smiling up at the figures whose mouth was open, though all Theo could hear was the howling of the wind it was as if it was talking to the Male, the male answered the wind as if it actually had spoken words "You will not be alone, instinct has bought you a new companion. She stands behind you. She is young and is sure to fill your life with good and maybe bad memories. Take care of her and teach her just as you have me. I will never forget you.... " Theos presence was known from then on, the male had spoken of her and said things she did not understand, of course she would not stay here with the miserable figure floating. Turning around she attempted to leave but the air was more forceful behind her now, it raged like anger would maybe the price she was paying for trampling upon a heart retching scene she did not know but the wind hit her full blast in the stomach causing her to fly across the room, though she hit the floor softly next to the male, who Theo only now realized was Fae such as her, He smiled at her sadly before one last fleeting glance at the misty figure above and his eyes rolled back, his chest stopped moving and all color and life seemed to seep from his body and return the soils he lay upon. Theo sat watching, fascinated by also saddened by this strangers death. His words bore no meaning to her but as she looked up at the figure it seemed to have changed, Now instead of being a misty figure floating above the dieing fae it was a while being, color, legs, not floating but kneeling before the corpse, Tears streaked vivid blue eyes, the long blonde hair fell to the figures hips and swirled around the like the wind, eyes adverting from the lost soul met Theo's own. "So you are my new subject." the words were not nice and held no emotion, it was as if the figure was not crying, had no feelings towards the corpse before her. Maybe that was what it meant when a life ended, you go forgotten and unloved. Theo reached out to the Fae, with two small fingers she closed the males eyes, as if he was sleeping before replying to the figure "I don't know what you mean" Silence filled the cave broken by the figure once more "Come."

    After walking until her legs ached a huge opening in the side of a hill came into view, it could be home to some monster for all she knew but it was shelter as long as she kept herself hidden while moving into the opening she would safe. The moment she stepped into the cave, over the invisible threshold it held warm air hit her, warming her up instantly, almost drying the tattered clothes she was wearing, the change in temperature caused her to shiver. Instinct pulled her once again, deeper into the cave, keeping close to the jagged walls she walked slowly down the large tunnel, a tunnel which looked as if it could go on forever to the center of the earth, after an hour of walking the tunnel expanded, grew higher and wider, no longer arrow the tunnel came to an end, opening into an area quiet spacious yet for some reason a vortex of wind filled it, it sounded as though the wind was crying, by just standing on the sidelines and feeling the force of this wind she felt sad, her heart yearned to comfort the wind and cheer it up but such a thing wasn't possible, the wind did have emotion and wasn't something you could sympathies with or console. Closing her eyes she muttered her apologies, taking pity on the wind, at this it grew stronger but the subdues to a warm breeze once again, A faint figure now stood in the center of the room, floating above what appeared to be a small figure, Mesmerized Theo watched the events taking place before her.

    Discovering herself.

    She had spent months in the cave, having not left since the moment she enter, believe Theo she had tried but a wall of wind would not let her. On her last attempt she had be thrown across the cave, so far she had hit the wall on the other side, cursing she grew angry. Turning her attention and the anger upon the figure who since that day, when she had said come had not moved from the spot she now sat. Though Theo had not followed her summons and tried to escape. "Let me out, You sit here in silence and not tell me why I'm stuck here. I don't know how or why but i know it is you who is blocking my way" Theo screamed at her, but the figure did not flinch. Getting angry obviously wasn't helping Theo's situation so with five deep breaths she calmed her spirit and sat, crossing her legs and folding her useless wing upon her back, arms crossed she stared at the female "Please miss, would explain." Maybe politeness would help in such a situation. As the though appeared in her head the figure seemed to move and adjust herself until she was facing Theo directly. "Child have you ever heard the term muse?" . Theo closed her eyes thinking back to the days where she studied in the library and with the elders. She had heard of a muse but did not really pay attention so any information regarding what it was, was not known to her "Sure, I have heard of it but I don't know what it is" The figure inclined its head and smiled "Well now that you have calmed I will explain what a muse is, and what it has to do with you." Theo rolled her eyes at these words, of course it was like the elders she would need to sit and listen but her attention span wasn't that great, she couldn't focus on boring old wives tales but she knew this time she would have to otherwise she may have to stay in this cave, all the food she had kept in small packages was gone, if she remained her she would probably die from starvation. Nodding her head in response she waited for the figure to explain.

    " A Muse is a spirit that dwells not only within this world but within a place called the Dreaming. I doubt you have heard of this but now is not the time to explain such trivial things. A muse is a spirit as i have said but they are really more than that, A muse protects Nature, even the smallest of places have a muse. A guardian of such. Though there strengths are not exactly the same as others. Where as i have enough power to manifest myself in this form. The powers of a muse varies, it all depends on the amount of territory we muses posses. I have a rather large territory, from the edges of the Fae city Asrai following west to the outskirts of a horror to my kind, Howldon. In the physical world we are bound to the land that composes us, that gives us life, the one we protect. Nevertheless,our influence may extend beyond the territory we guard even if we cannot walk out of it though the distance we can influence has never been tested. As you know Fae have a strong connection with nature and also Fae are known to have large magick capabilities, This is why is it not uncommon for Fae to come across muses, Magick on the other hand is another subject, you know that when you over use Magick you are giving up your life and sanity, we muses have another way, this does not happen to mages that draw their power from a Muse. A Muse is able to generate her own Aether from the life she represents and from those who pay tribute to her due to this strong mages can be born. The history of Muses is not something you need to be told but more so you can learn if need be, the purpose of you being here is just that, We muses though are a spirit and a different being from your own have the power to bless people with Magick, Not many stray this way and so i have only ever done such a thing for a couple of people but they are no matter to me anymore. What you are here for is a chance you will not receive again it may be crucial to your survival or bring your down fall, Magick is a tricky thing but with your race it is a necessity. Magick is needed for enhance your wings other wise they just prove as pretty decorations upon your back, You can accept Magick from me but you will need to be loyal and do as i say, if i say come, you come. " Theo sat slightly shocked by the offer which has been placed before her, she could learn magic, maybe even fly like her father does, it really did not need thinking about, Theo came out of her sheltered life into a world she did not know to learn, she may as well start now. Nodding in response to the Muse she spoke "I would be grateful if you accepted me" The muse seemed to lighten "Very well. We will start with the basics"

    The contract between Fae and Muse had been established. From the age of thirteen to the age of fifteen she followed the muses commands, was taught the basics of magic, firstly was air, the only time she would be allowed to leave the cave was when she learned how to connect and tune in with the wall of air that stopped her from leaving and dispel it. This took Theo a year and half to achieve, the last year she spent she learned how to control the air itself, by splitting its particles and focusing on each one to do her bidding, this took another six months to prefect, until she could tell the difference from each particles her training would not stop once she accomplished it Theo was allowed to leave. Having learned a little more about herself and her race she planned to learn more. two years in the muses company she was told to leave and venture outside, the muse warned her that she would be watching Theo's process and from time to time she would appear before her to test her. Theo left and started another journey.

    For the first year she stayed in the stretch of forest that was cared and protected for by her muse practicing what she had learned by climbing to the top of trees and jumping from them, gathering the Magick of air around her wings trying to stay airborne, Theo hurt herself a lot in the process but within evergreen there was a lot of Medical herbs around, her cuts would heal over time and she had not broken anything just yet. One fateful day while practicing she met a strange creature in the tree tops, what it was she did not know but it seemed to be in pain, finding it hard to breath, or out of breath she didn't know but its breaths were raspy and quick, deciding she would try and help she moved oxygen particles around its head, trying to get as much oxygen in the creature as its lungs could take, apply medical herbs which would ease the pain, she continued this for a single month, everyday doing the same and in time the creature seemed to become well. Once well enough Theo left its side to continue her journey but the most curious thing had happened, the creature had followed silently behind her, maybe tending to it for so long had kindled a relationship between them. One day Theo stopped and looked at the creature, not being able to bare sending it away she petted it head and received a rather amusing reaction, it nuzzled against the palm of her hand, purring. Theo smiled in delight and choose to name the creature gilly. Only twice during this time had the Muse, her teacher Appeared, once to instruct what herbs to use and once to tell her what the creature was. They enjoyed companionship and she was in need of some. Having strayed far in the time she had been traveling, Theo had now reached the edges of her mentors territory and saw the thing she despised most. Howldon.

    The Journey to Howldon.

    She left her roots behind and entered the built up society, though excited she was weary of the new surroundings. The tall stone constructions and paved ground, not a tree or field in sight, a little grass here and there but not grass that has been tended to, it tugged at her heart to see such a thing, Nature being destroyed and replaced by this monstrosity. People trampling what little nature was left, she wished to tend to it but the amount of people walking around had her fearful. Taking deep breaths she slowly moved closer to the city instead of staying on the outskirts yet the pain in her chest did not leave instead her heart began to race even faster, she thought it was fear of being seen by millions of people but in the end that didn't turn out to be the case. moving along she grew slower and slower her wings grew heavier and her breathing deeper, upon reaching the city she looked over her shoulder, Nature so far away, over a large slab of stone, one which the longer she looked separated her further from the green trees and tall grass. Closing her eyes she tore her vision away from what she had left behind and hovered where she was until her feet touched the path, the instant they did pain shot through her head causing her to double over and hold it, it felt as though someone had just taken a axed to her head and cleaved it straight it half. A terrible pain she had never encountered before. A pain so intense that it caused her vision to blur and the already strange world before her to appear stranger. A small thud sounded, somehow without realizing it she had collapsed on the floor, cold stone pressing against her body as some strange force seemed to crush her, attempting to squash her and imbed her in the stone she now for the first time feared. She ached, her body feeling as though it was becoming less and less active, strength leaving her to the point her eyes rolled back into her head, almost losing herself for a moment until a voice echoed in her mind "Leave or Die, Theo. Leave or Die" The words vibrating around her head, causing her moan in agony. She knew the voice belonged to her Mentor, the person who taught her the most valuable things in life but she couldn't obey this, she couldn't do as she was told not because she didn't want to but because she couldn't move, she couldn't breath, rattling breaths left her and it took all her energy just to stay conscious, never mind the fact she had collapsed in a busy place, where bustling feet could easily squash her unnoticed. Moments blanked out as her ears popped silencing the world and spots obscured her vision, her head pounding like her heart about to explode as she dragged breath after breath into her tiny body. How long she had been led there she couldn't tell a soul but a she felt it before she heard or seen it, something wet pushing against her cheek, a pushing at her side, trying to wiggle beneath her, after a while it succeeded and she felt the short rough hair brush against her cheek. The steady yet swift movement of something moving beneath her, slowly the pain eased up, her heart stopped racing, her muscles stretching and her bones ceasing to grind against her joints. Slowly the world came back to her, her breathing controlled itself to deep rhythmic beat. Her focus becoming clear for a mere moment she could see the trees growing closer, before blacking out completely.

    How long she had slept there she did not know but she was awoken by the same voice traveling into her head. "Theo you silly little girl. Your Magic stems from Myself, Your life Stems from your Home land traveling to such a place as Howldon was stupid, why did you not think, You are young your not strong enough to tackle such a object like this. Away from Nature you lose sense of yourself, Away from me you lose your magic, forcing yourself over your limits. Where it may be easy to do the things you do while in the forests, mountains or meadows in Howldon those things will take strain on you. You almost died. I'm just glad that you did not travel so far in that my voice could not reach you. If it hadn't been for Gilly you would be lost to the world." She did not speak, did not open her eyes but listened closely to the Muses words after a moments silence she opened her mouth to speak "I'm sorry and thank you Gilly" Opening her eyes she blinked blinded by the rays of light penetrating the canopy above. Reaching out she touched Gillys face, her small digits massaging behind his ears. "How long have i been asleep?" She was speaking to herself more than anyone but received the answer in a curt angry yet worried tone. "4 days, You have slept for 4 days, and this one is almost over. Theo do not enter Howldon ever again until you gain my permission to do so. Do not leave Natures side, if you do i will see it as betrayal and strip you of your position as my student and take away all magic properties i have given you." Nodding she sat up, opening her mouth to speak and closing it again, she had disappointed someone she cared for, she knew this but she had also knew sorry would not be good enough. "I understand Muse. I'll never step into the place again until i have earned your permission and Name" A faint pop sounded in her head and her teachers presence had left her. She would gain the Muses trust, knowledge and name, only then would she know shes truly ready to tackle Howldon, climbing to shaky legs she stumbled, caught by Gilly who supported her she had one last fleeting glance at Howldon before disappearing into the forest and returning to nature for as long as needed.

    What does life have planned?

    Having survived her trip into the Howldon she swore never to return until she ready but she needed to know something for her journeys to continue calling the muse she shouted as loud as her voice would allow "Muse I have a question if you would not mind answering. Its very important to me" being back in the muses territory made the connection between Theo and the muse stronger, she did not need to shout but for some reason Theo couldn't adjust to the fact the muses was no where but everywhere in this place. Upon calling the Muse appeared in physical form. "What is it you wish to know Theo?" The tone was harsh once more. She realized she had not been forgiven for her past mistake, this made asking the question she posed to ask awkward but she needed to know, her words left her lips fast "I understand entering Howldon is bad and places like it, where there is no nature but does that mean that even places with nature that is not connected to you is bad also?" Theo looked up the muse awaiting the answer which would come from her lips, The muse shook her head smiling "No child, as long as there is nature around you will be fine, It was not because you were out of my territory that makes Howldon bad it was because you were away from nature, anywhere with nature you are fine to go, even if my connection to you can not stem within the boundaries of Howldon, within nature it is easier. " With those words the muse was gone, Theo smiled, a little hope restored before she set out to venture into the world once again though she decided never to leave nature until she was sure she could survive it, not just Howldon but anywhere where nature was not present.
