    December 28th, 8:00 am

    Jherrek walks along the side of the road, withdrawing his wings from his flight to the bulletin board. Pulling out a normal copy paper-sized note, he pins it to the board and turns away quickly.

    "Let's just hope this gets someone's attention."

    And with that, he opens his wings again, and flies toward the inn. He might as well ask Link if it would be a good idea for him to actually have this little gathering. Come to think of it, he probably should have asked before the bulletin post.



    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

    Uriel Dy'zerallion Akir has gone missing and moreso so has his true self. As he is my charge and my brother, one would find me in quite the disarray. I therefore propose to formulate a group of his closer acquaintances and friends, maybe five or so, to pull together our resources to find the lost one.

    I must wish caution upon you, though. My brother has succumbed to the Beast: Niddhogg. He has become completely unpredictable and dangerous. He seems to have lost any if not all of his feelings toward his friends, and family for that matter.

    If you wish to see this matter solved, I will set up a meeting at the Stock Pot Inn if this bulletin post is successful in gathering the required number of people.

    Thank you.

    Jherrek Dy'zerallion Akir.

    Time: 8:30 AM
    Date: December 28th, 2013

    Only half an hour after Jherrek left, a squirrel yaojing came dashing along, yelping something along the lines of "I'm late for work!", "It's so cold!", "I hate winter!" and "My hair!"

    Usually, Xiao would have just flown straight to work but as it was, she had a lot of difficulty getting out of her cosy bed this morning (curse the colder temperatures and temptation to hibernate) and was now trying to make sure she looked presentable and make her way to the Victorian Lily on time - a multitasking feat that cannot be performed while flying.

    She was just in the middle of braiding her bangs when the sprinted across the area where the bulletin board was, skidding to a halt as her nose picked up a familiar scent. Why, it's Uriel's pretty-haired brother! But why here? Oh bulletin board. Must be a challenge. Mr. Jherrek did seem like the type to like a good spar or two or three or five. Gah, she have no time to nosy at challenges! To work! To work! Let's see this bit of hair over, this bit under, this bit over... but what if Mr. Jherrek wants something else? Some other things like...like.. a job request for somebody to do his hair?!

    "Urgh! My silly nosiness!" huffed Xiao as she double back to the board and quickly skim it for new posters whilst she finished the last of the braiding.  That one's old. This one's kinda old. That doesn't look interesting at all. THIS ONE!

    ....

    "URIEL IS WHAT?!" was the loud cry and there was the sound of palms hitting the board as the yaojing pressed her face closer to the page as if that would make the contents clearer. "Missing, beast, Nidd...Niii...Nid...Hoo..Niddhogg. The inn..."

    Xiao chewed her lip. When was the last time she'd seen Uriel? Very long ago, yes. She had been an awful squirrel and haven't been out very much. She really must make more of an effort to see her friends more often... but it's so cold out! Doesn't matter! Her friend was missing and in danger (maybe? Yes?) and his pretty-haired brother is asking for help and help is what he was going to get!

    "I have to tell Miss. Aya I might have to take some days off work," said Xiao to herself then glanced at the page again, chewed her lip again and with a heavy sigh, signed her name and ran off.

    Time: ???
    Date: December 28th, 0004




    It had felt like centuries since his last visit to Portal City; a vast, sprawling metropolis filled with wonders and mysteries. His previous foray into the harsh wilds had left the Leopard Warrior's clothes less than desirable, in tatters and prolonged damage beneath the sun, but the muscular individual did not seem to pay much mind. So long as his trusty sword's edge remained sharp and his body was in good health to swing it, the Leopard Warrior considered himself to be in good fortunes. Ah, but what was this? Amber eyes caught wind of something unique flapping lightly in the wind; a paper tacked onto a bulletin board of sorts. Drawn to the penmanship and curious to see as to what this document was, the Leopard Warrior approached and soon began to read.

    It was surely destiny that had urged him on this day.

    Uriel Dy'zerallion Akir... Had he heard of this name before? It did not strike up a memory but, as the Leopard Warrior had come to understand, his very own life was shrouded in confusion and fog. It did not matter if he knew of this Uriel or not; the man was clearly in trouble and so was his brother, this Jherrek Dy'zerallion Akir. Niddhogg... A beast that devours warrior and brother alike? It was decided!

    Withdrawing his sword from its scabbard and letting the honed edge produce a resonating ring, the Leopard Warrior had pledged himself to this ordeal. "I know not who you are or what you are, Jherrek Dy'zerallion Akir, but I will aid you in your quest to free your brother from Niddhogg," he said quietly.

    He sheathed his sword and walked away, a new purpose filling the void.

    It had been a few months since that fateful day in the park, but even though that incident had been dealt with as best as possible, Ryoko had had a sneaking suspicion that this was not over… not by a long shot. She had at the very least gained a new ally if not a friend out of it, but all the same, she was aggravated that something like that world-eater was causing the music-loving Synya such stress and confusion. It had been back in August, but for some reason, today her thoughts trailed back to the encounter.

    Uriel… what had he done to deserve that beast taking over?

    With the timing that seemed like something only her mother could orchestrate, the former space pirate happened to glance at the bulletin board as she passed by it, just in time to catch a new notice… one that mentioned Uriel. Ryoko stopped right in her flight, quickly whipping around to hover closer to the bulletin as her golden gaze moved to scan the script.

    Wait… Uriel had gone MISSING?! When did that happen?! Granted, Ryoko was still getting to know him so she didn't exactly keep tabs on him, but still! Reading on, she noted that his brother apparently wanted to gather a task force to go look for him… all right, that sounded reasonable enough. A search party would likely do better than just one person looking… although if he was indeed missing, maybe she could check in with Washu to see if she could pinpoint anything for them.

    The next paragraph caused her to narrow her eyes into a dangerous glare as it confirmed that he had not only gone missing, but that that beast inside of him had taken over. Great… just great. She had already seen a taste of this monster, but even though that incident back in the park had been dealt with, she was eager to help him fend it off. She had promised to try to help him then, and she was determined to hold to that now as well.

    Nodding as she made a mental note about checking in at the Stock Pot Inn, Ryoko took a deep breath before she reached forward and picked up one of the pens that was conspicuously placed around the bulletin board. Deep down, she knew that this was going to be a trying quest, but at the same time… she wanted to help him out… and if nothing else, this was set to be a better set of circumstances for the new year than the previous one had been.

    Signing her name and giving the bulletin another hard look, Ryoko suddenly phased out, teleporting away and back to Washu's lab.

    From miles away Arro's eyes picked out the words scrawled across the board. His attention only drawn by the addition of two uncommon names. Jherrek and Uriel Akir. It was rare for Jherrek to put in a request, he was a solemn man who valued his privacy. The notification board was the least likely place the drai expected him to make an appearance in any form, physical or written.

    Knowing then that only a matter of utter urgency could draw Jherrek to such a public place, Arro descended wholeheartedly towards the platform. The drai was fully capable of reading the flyer from his great height, but felt the premonition that he'd soon desire to read its message at a more personal distance.

    He alighted with a flurry of early snowflakes. The sky not quite cold enough for them to condense in anything greater than a trickle. And touched down on scuffed leathery feet.

    Scanning through Jherrek's request pulled a pensive growl from his heavy chest.

    Nithokkr...

    His kin was not destined to lay at ease in Uriel's prison. Already had Arro among several others fought the younger Akir possessed by Nithokkr's manifestation. It hadn't been an easy thing for him to do what that day had demanded.

    He signed his name nonetheless. Singing a talon and dragging it's tip along the paper to burn his moniker on the page. His gnarled and beaten hand fell slowly from the post.

    Amber eyes stared up at his mark, frowning long and hard from under a heavy brow. A long held breathe fumed past his eyes as frost in the air. It was unlikely that anyone better suited than himself to this task existed. He acknowledged that grimly. Despite the difference of worlds and relation, he couldn't deny the connection he felt with Nithokkr, and thus a sense of responsibility for Uriel's situation. A drai from age old legend, reappearing in the breach within the body of an edmr? How could he ignore that? The only kin he had, and he was mad and caged within Uriel Akir. Only no longer.

    Arrogath turned away from the ominous announcement, hastening back into the sky.

    He'd assist both prisoner and vessel if possible.

    Kev had just gotten off work as he walked to the Sanctuary to see if anyone was inside. Christmas had come and pass, New Year's Eve was on its way. The Sanctuary had been a little sparse for a while, but since it was the holidays he could understand. Everybody had something to do around this time! He'd sit around in the Sanctuary a while and wait for someone, anyone, to show up! Before he walked inside he decided to glance at the bulletin board on the way there. After all, there was always something interesting up. Job offers, Zurg being a slave, a cry for help-

    Wait a second.

    His eyes trailed back to the note that mentioned Uriel and asked for assistance. Jherrek wrote this? He tilted his head. Yes, he remembered Jherrek talking about Uriel being transformed or something. Uriel wasn't acting like his usual self. He was hot, seemed to be kinda snappy, and there was the 'trying to eat his brother' thing. He was becoming a beast, and Jherrek needed help. He tapped his fingers together nervously as he looked the paper over.

    Jherrek needed help, and he did like Uriel. The two young men were confusing, but who wasn't nowadays? Whether it was magic or technology, lots of people talked about things that made him confused and that was okay. Uriel was turning into something and he needed help from someone. But then again...he'd promised Zurg he wouldn't run face-first into danger. He had an unfortunate habit of dying lately and it affected his friends. He certainly had no death wish either, and he didn't want to make Zurg or anyone else worried.

    But could this really get that bad? Would they even need to fight him? Maybe they just needed to talk him down and bring him back that way! He sort of doubted it, especially since if anyone could talk him back to normal it'd be his brother and not people he'd known for a year or two, but still. Besides, he'd noticed from Hazama's ordeal that he was strong. Not the strongest guy around, Gods no. But stronger than some people here, who needed help sometimes. Besides, there were going to be 6 other people there, counting Jherrek! Maybe just this once...

    He grabbed the pen and quickly scribbled his name, 'Kev-Mak-Tarr', on the paper before slinking away like a dog who'd been caught in the trash. Better go to the inn then, yes? At least most of the names on the paper looked familiar!

    Grodus was idly wandering down the sidewalk on this more or less ordinary day when he spied the bulletin board standing along it. Ordinarily he might not have paid it a second glance, but knowing very well that he had to get stronger somehow, the sorcerer stopped and took a look at whatever was posted.

    Most of the requests posted on the board looked to be old and outdated, but there was one in particular that seemed relatively recent. Grodus didn't really know either Jherrek or his brother, and honestly didn't care either way, but the mention of that beast was intriguing. Well, it wasn't like he was doing much of anything else at the moment, and so he signed his name on the last available position.

    This would probably be a struggle, considering how weak he still was, but it would certainly be a step in the right direction.

    Jherrek rubs his eyes, the past few days hadn't been so nice to them. Plenty of rune research will do that to you. He had come upon something rather interesting. A secret that had been used by the Light, the god of his realm. Something that could hopefully save his brother.

    He walks down the path toward the bulletin board and checks on his post. He blinks rapidly at the amount of people. Full up already? He smirks a bit. Uriel must be well liked. That's good. He hopes at least some of them actually care for his brother.

    Jherrek pulls out a another piece of copy paper and untacks the previous bulletin. He places the next one in the exact same spot.

    To those involved,

    We will hold a meeting in the Stock Pot Inn to discuss our plans about Uriel. Thank you all for this, I will explain more there.

    Meeting will begin at noon, on January 4th.

    Jherrek

    Addendum: We will most likely be on the roof. I will make sure it is warm and well accomodated.


    He quickly adds that last bit and turns on the spot. Alright. Time to prepare.

    His wings shine out and he flies into the air, bundling up his arms in his jacket and heading for the Inn.

    It's about time something was done about his brother.

    {ALRIGHT! Event signup closed! I'll post the thread for the meeting tomorrow!}
