Sails Set For Uncertainty...
A soft chilling wind pushed the sails of a small humble ship that drifted slowly in the Grette sea. Standing rigid at the bow of the vessel stood a tall figure. Most of his body was hidden by a jet black cloak which fluttered lightly with the wind as did his shoulder length show white hair. He stared out into the sea; his vibrant amber eyes seemed to hold a firy hue within them as the suns brilliant golden rays shown down upon the beings tanned skin.

He sailed North though he was unsure of where exactly he was going he knew any place was better than his homeland at the moment. He raised a hand up towards his face and stroked his pointed ears for a moment, and then let it drop back down to his side. The ears made it quite obvious that the man was an elf, and thus whenever he was in crowded areas he would always wear his hood up to escape scrutinization and racism against his kind.
Upon a glance, and judging only by the beings physical features he looked to be a young man around the age of twenty two. He was tall in height, and of a toned muscular build, his mere presence emitted a strong, youthful, wise auram. Their was certainly much more to this being than met the eye, but he kept it all well protected in the confines of his mind.
A sudden rumbling noise snapped the being out of his meditative like state. Quickly he whipped his body around and drew his long sword that had been concealed beneath his cloak strapped around his waist. The crimson blade that obviously held magical properties shimmered in the sun as the being made his way towards a small crate on the main deck that was wobbling about. He held his blade up and ready in a defensive position as he kicked over the crate causing a small creature to come rolling out muttering soft groans of pain as it did.
"Kermu?" The being sheahted its sword, walked over to the small creature and kneeled down beside it.
The creature was no larger that the beings head. Its small round body was covered in a short fluffy white fur. It had two small paws that looked to be of little more use than providing the ability to hobble about. As well as two short claws that looked equally un-impressive. The creature had two large piercing blue eyes, a pudgy red nose and though his fur concealed it; a slim mouth.
The creature slowly rose to its feet, and as it did it shook himself causing a pair of angelic like wings to protrude from its back. It flapped them a few times shaking off some dust, and then lifted off so it was eye level with the being.
"Jadilus! What a strange coincidence meeting you here. I didn't know you were on this boat too? Wow, this is really something I mean..." The tiny creature apparently named Kermu spoke in a rather loud jubilant sounding voice.
"Kermu..." The being apparently named Jadilus interrupted it. "Kermu what are you doing here? You know you shouldn't have come it will be dangerous...you could get hurt." Jadilus spoke in a soft, kind, almost melodic sounding voice.
"Exactly!" Kermu excalimed as he flapped his wings a bit more and shook his little claw. "If their is danger your going to need my help. With Kermu the brave at your side you will have nothing to fear!" Kermu puffed up its small chest and beamed with pride as he hovered in the air.
Jadilus chuckled lightly at Kermu's words. "Kermu the brave huh? Is this the same Kermu that once alerted the town guard over a 'terrible monster' that in turn ended up being an adorable little rabbit?"
Kemu's chest immediately deflated and he dropped to the floor. He then quickly got back to his feet and flapped his wings vibrantly until he was eye level with Jadilus once more. "Adorable my wings! You should have seen the size of that thing! And its teeth! They were like little razors, the thing was quite obviously a minion of evil!"
Jadilus simply shook his head quite amused by the little creature, and though he wished he wouldn't have come he was glad that he did now, for atleast he would have some company.
"Either way...you shouldn't have followed me Kermu. Once they found out you have left with me you will never be allowed to return...you are aware of this aren't you?"
Kermu hesitated for a moment before speaking and then puffed up his chest once more. "Of course I am, and its a sacrifice I am willing to make for my best friend Sir Jadilus Lutrian. Besides...not only am I an expert fighter, but im also quite the lady killer if I do say so myself." As Kermu spoke he thrashed his little claws about in the air demonstrating his fighting skills and then flapped his wings and puffed up his chest a final time at his last comment. "Your going to need me just as much as I need you."
Jadilus shook his head, and chuckled all the more at Kermu's jovial carefree attitude. "Don't call me Sir anymore...I was banished remember?" Jadilus sighed softly as his eyes drifted and he thought about past events. He then shook his head and looked Kermu in the eyes. "Well since you're here now, I suppose their is no turning back...im glad you came Kermu." Jadilus scratched the creature behind its small fluffy ears and it murred softly in affection.
Jadilus then turned his body to face north and stared out into the sea as he spoke softly. "It's going to be a long, and difficult journey from here on out Kermu...are you ready?"
Kermu flew over towards Jadilus and landed lightly on his shoulder. "I was born ready!"
Jadilus smiled and nodded then returned to his previous spot on the bow and stood rigid once more.
(( OOC: If you can't tell what the story is about by what I wrote...then I don't blame you, but I hope you grasped some of it? Something happened back at the elven kingdom...something bad...that's all you need to know for now.
Their is turmoil, and anarchy on the rise, most people of the land are on edge for they hear news of war just beyond the horizon. I'm going to keep most of the story facts hidden for now, I'm going to let those who are permitted to join make up much of what they want. Since much of the story is untold for now I'll accept ideas of how things could unfold, how things might have already happened etc. etc.
This is fantasy obviously, swords and sorcerry and all that good stuff. My character is currently on a small ship headed towards wherever the sea may take him.
Take what I've written, take your imagination, and go with it, write, and write well. ))
Some Character Rolls to Fill (( Not necessary but you may use if you want to try something different ))
The cold hearted, battle hardened enchantress:
Role: What great story doesn't have the typical femme fatalle role in it? This story isn't any different and thus requires this role to make it great. You can get creative as you like when creating this role so long as you keep in mind that you are a vicious killer who feels no remorse for her enemies who turns out to be not quite as evil as she makes herself out to be.
The smooth talking, beer drinking, womanizing warrior:
Role: Your typical smartass warrior who talks big, and has the talent to back it up as well. He's certainly a drinker but not a lush, and loves woman almost as much as he loves fighting. Although he hasn't been known to stay faithful to just one woman. He is a gentleman none the less...though secretly he searches for a woman that would be somewhat of a challenge. He's a bit hard to predict, and a loose cannon, but if befriended he would make quite the irreplacable ally.
The innocent yet powerful sorceress: ((Note this role my also be filled as a male ))
Role: A young woman who has not yet experienced the cruelties of war, and has had little battle experience, but she has extreme potential. Her powers are above average to start with though once she unlocks her full potential they will become near god-like. Her beauty is angelic, and thus she is often times pestered by the opposite sex, and thus she learned how to use the staff to better defend herself.
