Mana, A substance that everything posses. Magic is an instance where an individual were able to warp that very substance. The nature of Mana may varied from one to another depending on the individual who perform said Magic. A night elf by the name Wyse Strout who couldn't use her Mana, decided to learn further about what Mana actually is. Her ambition led her into a strange and mysterious journey. Stories told there was a place where everything is made by pure Mana, the name of that place was Rathazam. Many years people who longed for infinite resources have tried to colonize the land, battling it out, engaging in war, until one day, a creature made of pure Mana, claiming himself as the king of the place, slaughtered all those trespassers who've unrightfully dared to set foot on his place without his permission, he was able to bend and distort the dimension at his own will, none have stood a chance against his dominance except one group of sorcerers who called themselves the strout family. The strout family manage to stall some time until they've got back into their world with the resources they've taken from rathazam. The king marked the family and vow to search for them and kill them for their act of thievery towards his place, the king called himself, Extyr. The star showering the sky can be seen clearly on that chill dark. Lanterns that placed around the field, illuminates everything from darkness. A sign with the name 'Strout' name on it, a Book statue that somewhat has reduced opacity at the center of the park and people with robes and armor scattered around the mansion. Calm yet warm, A girl sitting in silence, Emptying her mind while focusing her hands on a single piece of lit candle, A drip of sweat started pouring down her face as she concentrate. The tree suddenly made a knocking sound on the window, the light from the candles was almost perished. The girl let out a sigh and carry herself into the desk near her. *scribble *scribble "203th try and i'm still unable to use magic, the very reason is still yet to be discovered. i've been asking people how did they perform their magic, however that doesnt help me in my case. maybe if i could get my hands on one of those pu-" "HEY BIG SIS WHAT ARE YOU DOING" "GAH, you scared me xid" "Hehe, you left your door open... Anyway, is it one of your diaries again?" "No, its a journal, THEY ARE DIFFERENT OKAY" "Okay okay, you don't have to yell at me like that, what's it about anyway?" "My inability to use magic... It's strange to me that.. I've been studying magic since i was 3 and i still can't do any of it, not even once. I've studied all the basics and even coming up with different theories and yet still.." "Aha your formula is one of the best, yesterday we tried to conjure a purple light and we detonate it in front of the guard's face, it was hilarious" "You know that wasn't suppose to explode like that... But i suppose if i could practice it, i would've known what's the error behind my thesis.. *sigh" "Oh don't be a let down now wyse, i mean it worked. maybe your body is just different than us and you have to come up with something new to do it yourself" "We were born with the same parents, how did i born differently than you?" "Hey it's just something you have to figure out by yourself hehe, have you come up with anymore fun things to do? I'm writing for this eye magic but seems like it would take me another month until it's finalized" "Eh.. im working on this.. Communication link.. It's suppose to allow you to speak to whomever received the link.. Its still work in progress" "Cool, maybe one day we can combine our project together and conquer this world with our magic" "Heh, i would need to be able to do magic before i do that" "Don't wait too long then wyse, lets meet again on dinner, see ya" "... Yeah i'll meet you there" .. Wyse thinking out loud in her head "xid.. You're still 10 but with your talent you can perform any magic without any hassle.. If only i could be like her... The only thing i could do is writing this.. No.. I wont give up... I'll find a way for me to be able to cast magic.. Just you wait" A sound can be heard from outside of wyse's room, what seem to be a voice of an adult male "DONT YOU DARE MOVE YOU LITTLE BRAT" The sound of her sister can be heard from far away, "CATCH ME FATSO, HERE EAT LIGHT" "GAH MY EYES" Birds chirping outside the window, The sun begun to rise. Wyse preparing for her test today at the gathering of yearly ceremonial of the world's renowned mage across Krose. She put her books and tools into her bag and went downstairs. There stood a man calling wyse as soon as he sees her. She suddenly hesitates to continue her footsteps. "Ugh... D... Dad.." "Have you prepared yourself for today Wyse?" as the man with facial hair and the same hair color as wyse slowly approaching her. "I'm not going to fail.. " as she trembles and took a step backwards. The man grabs Wyse's shoulder before she takes another step back. "You won't and that is absolute, i will not have a failure as my daughter, you hear me?" "... ... Yes... dad.." Wyse shaking in fear as her dad stare at her directly in front. Her hearts beats uncontrollably. "Splendid, you may proceed" Her dad let go of her and she continue walking into the ceremony building. The sound of blasting fireworks echoing around the sky. People lining up, Saluting, Singing. Arriving in front of the ceremony hall, There Wyse met her sister and their friends. "Hey it's Wyse" "Hey it's Wyse" her friend and Xid called her at the same time, Wyse replied "More like TWYSE... let me bury this joke with me" "Hey now Wyse, we're here to see you be proud, not to see you pout" her friend tried to cheer her up. "Yeah.. this ceremony is for my funeral" Wyse responded "C'mon sis, don't be such a downer, more importantly, have you meet with dad?" Wyse pauses for a brief second and answered Xid "... Yes.. i met him..." "Ah don't worry about him sis, dad always does that on daily basis, he really needs to get a hobby besides picking on you and looks extremely serious" They continue to chat around until the bell at the top of the building started to ring. Everyone begins to enter the ceremonial building. Inside of it was a a 50x50M square arena with spectator seat surrounding it and the examiner at the center of the arena. They continue to sing and commemorating the anniversary of sorcerer's date. Wyse meditating herself in the preparation room before they summon her into the arena. Many of the participants performing their own self created magic for the ceremony. Some fails some succeed. At last they called her name. She felt immense pressure after she set her foot into the ring. The crowd started tossing around rumors. "Isn't she too young for this" "She's only 12 and what is this?" "The Strout family is really strict" "She must be a genius" "Who put the toilet paper in the toilet?" "Proceed to demonstrate your own magic, and describe it's use after you do so" The examiner request Wyse. "Understood" As she close her eyes, emptying her mind. After a full minute of silence, the other starts to get bored. "C'mon Wyse you can do it" Xid wishing for Wyse's luck. "Pardon me Young gi.." The pocket in her robe started to glow slightly. An immense energy surging through her body. A Purple light on her hand immediately materialize around the arena, Stretching into different kinds of object. Everyone awed from the spectacle. Wyse glared at the light on her palm. When suddenly the thing in her pocket started to shine brighter. The objects created by her spreading uncontrollably around the arena and onto the spectator seat. "What..!!!" As Wyse lift her hands as the object she materialize turned into different kinds of sentient creature, attacking nearby people, The examiner attempt to use a nullifier on wyse but to no avail. The noise caused from the panic and the creature's roar from Wyse's magic, One of the Magus slowly descends into the arena from their seat and stand in front of Wyse. The pressence of the magus catches the attention of all the creatures surrounding the place. Before the creatures had any chance to lay finger on the mage that stands before Wyse. The Magus grab Wyse's hand and close her palm. The light purple creature vanish instantly as she's panting on the ground. "huft...huft..." "Shame.." The Magus puts her hand in Wyse's robe pocket. She tossed the orb that kept glowing and nullify the Pure Mana within it. Wyse Confused as to how that orb was in her pocket in the first place. "You think you can take a shortcut and use this to pass the test.. Despicable" "... ... I'm sorry... mom..." The sound of footstep rushing down towards a room. Xid appeared in front of Wyse's door. She yells at wyse about the recent accident. ".. IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.." "Well it is NOT my fault.. are we talking about the toilet?" "I mean your test, it wasn't your fault that the incident happened... dad and mom shouldn't banish you.. for what i did" "Wait.. i thought they ban me because i'm 12" "This is Serious" "Ok.. Xid.. I'm just.. *sigh"... It doesn't matter that you put that orb in my pocket, if that didnt happen i would probably stood there looking like an idiot hoping something would happen" Wyse lift her belongings and start walking past by Xid and towards the exit door. Xid tries her best to stop her from leaving the mansion. "No.. They should banish me instead of you... You didn't do anything wrong..." "Yeah.. That still doesn't prove the fact that without that orb i still won't be able to use magic" As Wyse hold the entrance door Xid shouted at her. "That's not the point, your formula, your invention, they proved that you don't need to use magic to feel special... You can make something special happen by yourself.." "... Sorry Xid.. but it's not up to me, it's up to..." Her dad appeared at the door bumping against Wyse as she was about to leave. They glared at each other for a brief second. "Uh.. As i was saying.. Take care for yourself Xi..." "NO!" Xid interrupted her. "Dad, Please reconsider wyse's banishment, she's your daughter.. My only sister.. Please" As Xid beg her dad for Wyse's stay "That was entirely her decision when she cheated on the test" "Nghh.. It wasn't Wyse's fault, it was m..." "My mistake..." Wyse interrupted her. "It was my mistake for being born like this, to be born, unable to use magic... I'm sorry i didn't try enough to correct that mistake and learn how to cast a magic.. It's mine.. I'm sorry dad, i'll be leaving" "HRRG.. THATS IT" As Xid's Mana bursting around her. "Then how about this... I'll challenge you in a duel and whoever win this get to decide Wyse's banishment" Xid's declaration. "Very well" They stepped outside the mansion and readied to engage in a duel. Xidnace and Verix, Wyse attempt to stop her sister from continuing this madness "Xid, please discontinue this madness!" "No Wyse.. I won't let you leave... Not until i prove to him" Xid cast her first magic towards Verix. She cast a purple light ball towards his face. Verix tried to use nullify to cancel her magic. However, before he do so, she exploded the purple light and blasted in front of Verix. "Hah.. How about that.. That was the magic from the daughter you wish to banish" As the dust begun to clear up, Verix appeared to be unscathed from that attack. "Is that all.. How pitiful.." "Then how about this one!" She casted link on Verix but nothing happened "See, you're trying to prove that the filth have some sort of talent creating this sort of magic.. It Is Not" "HRRG... HER NAME IS WYSE" Xid shouted as she cast another magic She cast a rune below Verix's foothold. The rune slowly becomes an eyeball and create a powerful laser blast upwards Verix. The bubble around him can be clearly seen after that attack "Now, let me ask you this. How much hope do you have when trusting a failure to do their job?" Ask verix as he teleported in front of Xid and place his palm on Xid's face. "huh.." Before Xid's notice, she was on the sky confused as how she got there in the first place. "WHAAAAA!" She fall down and scream Her dad teleported her into the ground after the amount of the gravitational pull is enough to knock her out cold. Her sight and hearing started to blur as she witnessed Wyse's and Verix's conversation. "Xid.. Hold on let me he" As Wyse dashes towards her. "As per our agreement i believe you are no longer allowed to be here. Filth" "Let me tend to he" "BEGONE" Verix teleported wyse elsewhere unknown. "Hmmph, Peasants" Xid wanders around the mansion aimlessly like a balloon. She was concerned and worried about her sister's safety. She was thinking about leaving the family and find her sister somewhere. At one night she can hear her dad arguing with someone. At first she thought it was her hallucination or her mind going insane, but it was her link magic that she casted on him on the previous fight. She combined her eye magic and link and use her eye to hear through what her father is currently talking about. "I had high hopes for that little night elf" "The subject is a failure, and that is final" "Pity, you should have at least return her Mana to her when she left Verix" "If she's unable to use magic without the help of her Mana, Then she's just the same as the previous one" "Ugh.. You're really persistent on having a candidate of Astrodomeus. Then how about the other one" "Xid? She's as unimportant as the other" "Still though, the filth's mana is quite the extraordinaire, Her mana can fill up the entire of this Empty Cube.. Of course compared to that unimportant" Xid could not believe what she just heard from that conversation. She ran outside the mansion and into the woods. "No... This isn't real right... No... Mom... Dad.. You are all.... You don't even think of us as your children... But what is this feeling... It's not anger.. It's... I'm envy of my sister..? ... No I'm not... *sob* I should find Wyse.... Mom and Dad don't want us.. They only want our power... No... They only want Wyse's Power... I'm just not important..... Are you joking... Me... " She cast a circular barrier around her. She grabbed a sharp rock and jam it into her shoulder. She Cried and shouted as her shoulder started to bleed. "GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" She casted her link eye magic on her shoulder. "Sorry... Wyse... I'm selfish and i'm sorry i'm envious of you... But i... I can't face you until i surpass you... And then.. I'll finish this fight against mom and d... Those Demons that call themselves our parents..." Somewhere on a particularly unknown land "Groggy get your shit together stop being drunk, Erhow stop flirting with the Nilbogs... Wait... Snood, Eroberer, Emberios... GET DOWN FROM THAT DRAGO!!!!" Wyse opened her eyes in a sudden and frantic manner. "Gwah.... What the... F***ing dream..."
