Warmaiden

Post by KiloSasha on Wed Apr 19, 2017 10:47 am

For thousands of years, she waited. Her strength returned slowly, and the ice that kept her in this freezing prison gradually melted away. When her power was just barely strong enough, she called to the sky, and it answered with a lightning bolt that cracked her tomb, but at a cost as now her strength had deteriorated once again.

The icy air that slapped her in the face when she tumbled from her prison elicited a gasp, and she sucked in the air she had missed so dearly all these years. The cold had numbed her body, and her skin held a slight blue tinge, but for the first time in over a thousand years it was free to shiver. Her limbs barely responded when she urged them to stand, the pieces of broken and cracked armour she still wore now overbearing and heavy in her weakened state. One foot was bare; the cold seeping though her skin and sent pain along the soles every time it touched the ice. She stumbled along, falling occasionally due to her numbed and clumsy limbs, but she cursed herself each time and got to her feet. The metal of her armour were like shards of ice pressed against her skin, and she shed them until all she wore was the undergarments beneath the armour which was not nearly enough to keep out the chill.

Elise the Jerdian scout had seen the sudden lightning bolt from a mile away she was out surveying the area for any useful resources the tribe could take with them when they would relocate in the near future. In a pouch she gathered samples of herbs and berries, but it seemed odd for their to be lightning with no storm so she decided she would head in that direction to investigate, and see if it was a threat.

Her fingers and toes tingled, and turned a lovely shade of purple as she stumbled through the cold. She had no idea where she was going, her only thoughts were that there must be someone out here who would be willing to share their fire. However, a deep exhaustion had set on her and this fact fled her mind, the only things she could focus on were the primal instincts of heat and the infinite rage she felt, but could no longer remember why. This feeling alone kept her going, even after she tripped and sprawled on the ground. She used a tall slab of rock to heave herself into a sitting position, and stopped there to rest.

As she continued the snow dissipated in the shade of the mountain, the air was still cold but it would not be painfully so if she was wearing proper clothes, and the ground was covered in grass with only patches of snow. "Stop" Came a voice from behind her, it was Elise the large and lean but muscular tribal aiming a bow at her from a safe distance. The reason Elise acted so cautiously was the armor, she knew of only the the tribes serving Mulicarm to wear such things.

She had already stopped, and at the sight of the other woman, she heaved herself onto her feet once again. The armour she still wore was battered, with many nicks and deep gashes. The woman that donned it looked similarly very worse for wear, with exhaustion lining her eyes and cold tinging her lips a pale shade of blue. An attempt at speaking proved fruitless, as her voice, unused for so many years and raw from the cold, made no sound.

She was in no mood to argue or chastise the woman for ordering her about, and quite willingly made her slow and clumsy way over to the woman.

The woman was clearly in no shape to fight so elise took of her fur cloak and threw it to the strange seemingly weak woman with the strange ears as she escorted her along the 2 mile walk to camp

She just barely caught it in her numb fingers, and threw it round herself, revelling in its delicious warmth. She was able to croak out a small "thank you" as she followed. She trailed behind the scout, the distance becoming slightly greater the longer they went on.

Elise did not allow her to fall behind and offered her a drink of water from her cantine to keep her going

She followed and wished they'd arrive soon.

They soon arrived at what was a cave with five leather tents outside of it

She was ready to collapse in a freezing heap on the ground when they finally arrived, but she forced herself to stay vertical.

Elise dragged her up to the shaman who was sitting by the fire in the cave mixing herbal remedies "I found this one in the tundra." she said "She wears hard clothes, like a follower of mulicarm"

"I am no follower of that heathen," She hissed, voice still raspy.

The shaman thestig was a man of average height in fur close with a bandage on his right arm "I see..." He said and closely inspected her and her armor "That armor is not of any of mulicarm's followers he concluded

She remained standing there, shivering in her armour. She only had one boot on, and her helmet was lost in the snow out there somewhere. "I am Sezia, Myrian, Warmaiden, Mistress of Wrath, God of war, lightning and beauty," She declared, although currently did not look as impressive as she wished she did.

"I am a god, fallen from honour thanks to that heathen, Mulicarm!" She said, then her voice dropped. "And I request to share your fire."

"You are welcome to Large eared one." Thestig said to her though they were all quite skeptical of her

"Thank you," She said with a sigh as she went to go heat up by the fire.

She scoffed them down as if she had never eaten before in her life... which she hadn't.
