Andre Reyes De La Barrera

After a brief uproar emerges from one of the women in regards to my last comment, a regrettable comment, albeit deserved; Mr. Eurice, ignoring my plea to purchase a room for myself and allow my stead inside, he instead offers a stable in which my horse may rest for the night. I doubt that it is up to par with what the beast is accustomed, but I suppose it will have to suffice. Further arguing of my case may perhaps come off as rude, which I do not want to happen. I do suppose I will have to share a room. This is not a particularly bad thing, just not ideal. I do suppose I should start thinking about who to room with. Both the women, the male identified as Ganthro, the pit fighter, the eccentric fellow by the title of Sir Lanceheart, and…was it Wilhelm? That sounds right., they are all taken. I guess that leaves slim pickings.

I approach the table and grab a key, not really sure which room it opens. The keys are surprisingly intricate. Wrought iron keys, with teeth with patterns ever so different from the last. These keys, certainly some of the oldest keys I have ever seen almost possess a mesmerizing effect to them. I stare down in wonder for a few seconds before looking up towards the rest of the group. “I do suppose I will be rooming with one of you for this evening. The question I must propose is which one of you shall be the lucky fellow to be blessed with my presence?”

I make my proposition with a smile. It feels good being able to reflect my status, to show the pride in my name. Regarding my horse, I wonder whether or not that was merely a jest. I do like to have the best for my beast, but perhaps my statement was of ill timing. The immediate reaction from the crowd seems to support the latter. The seemingly more uptight of the two females in the group stands up, objecting to my proposal. I quickly go to defend my statements, defending my right to decline the man’s offer, but before I can, I feel a familiar sensation. I feel a large hand grasped around my throat. He pulls me in, not very delicately mind you, and informs me of how he has perceived my actions. Needless to say his reaction was not very supportive of my previous statements.

He then releases me, and begins to stroll towards the first man to seek a roommate. More so than my neck, he has injured my integrity. As his attention is diverted away from me, I grasp my rapier with my right hand, ready to draw. Arm quivering slightly with rage, but I restrain myself from drawing my blade, only because of the intervention by the largest member of the group. I should really just leave this situation alone. No, I must defend my honor. As the dark skinned man is distracted, I quickly approach from his flank, and spit towards his face. “Normally I would apologize, but you are merely a slave. You may have your so-called freedom, but you are still slave to bloodsport. You are just in a much bigger cell now, you black, piece of shit.”

After finishing the slur, I display a vulgar sign with my right hand, before turning back towards the door of the inn. I nearly strut towards the exit, with a sense of victory despite no such occurrence. Whispering to myself as I walk, "To hell with these people, insanity is like a cold, spread out amongst these people. Perhaps the big man is sane, for he condemned the actions of the slave, but still, something seems off about him. Now, calling out over my shoulder, “I do not care if he gets a room, but the horse comes in. The night will be a cold one and wish not for him to suffer.”

Although I feel like I am suffering by being surrounded by these imbeciles.

Markus finally returns with some papers and maps. He goes on about how there were a series of red lights that streamed out from the castle. That must of been the gleams of vivid light that caught the man’s attention earlier. I understand now that these lights may have meant more than my safety. Intriguing to think that I was brought here for something to do with such a fleeting moment. I would hate to think anything too bad was caused by this Mithol fellow. Why would anyone wish to do such a thing, what are his motivations? I wish I could provide assistance with locating where the arcs sailed, but I was rather preoccupied at the time. Thus, I sit in silence, something that is somewhat new to me.

Alas for I am informed of even more disappointing news. With the entry of a new entity, a fellow named Mr. Eurice. He has been identified as the owner of the inn. He extends his kindness out towards the group by offering for us to stay here for the night, free of charge. “Doth thou not think we can pay our stay? I do not need your handouts. I am Andre Reyes De La Barrera. How steep is the price for your room, I shall pay that price without a problem. Worry not for me old man, I can take care of myself.”

Smiling to try and hide my irritation towards the attempted insult, I do gesture outside towards the door. “My steed however, a very well tamed, trust worthy beast would like to sleep inside. It is accustomed to quite the nice stable, and I feel your inn has quite a similar feel to it.”

Now turning myself towards the fellow who joined the party the latest. The one who can not seem to sit in a chair with any sense of grace or subtlety. “Sir, you did request a quiet roommate. I think my horse fits your request rather nicely, what say you?”

After a few moments pass, I receive a few reactions, mostly odd stares. It seems that Xlos Lanceheart might be willing to trust me. Both the females in the group however care not for festivities, but rather for answers. They wonder about the lights, they wonder why they are here. Fascinating. Wondering who Markus is, why? He is merely a spark in the flame that is us all being here. Why would they want to drown out this night with thoughts pertaining to the cataclysm, not the reaction. I just don’t understand.

I approach the rest of the group, first looking at the blacksmith, to the other, and back to the blacksmith. I let out an audible sigh. “By Markus, I assume you mean the fellow who arranged for us all to meet here.. Well yes, of course you do. Well, remember now, when thou see the tsunami, not do you wonder about the cause. You care about the results. All I really know is Markus brought us here. Perhaps we should honor his memory with a drink, no?”

I then stroll back to the bar, quickly coming back to the ladies with two drinks, light however so they don’t get the wrong impression. “Whilst we wait, bottoms up, no?”

I wait in this inn. I sit here for what feels like an eternity. Time passes. People come, people go. After what feels like an eternity, a man decides to speak to the group. A mister, Xlos Lanceheart is the one courageous enough to open his mouth. Finally someone may have put an end to this streak of stoicism among the group. Perhaps he shall be the cure to my boredom. With this in mind, I quickly finish what was left in the drink I ordered before deciding to meet the guy. Oh, and the meet the guy I certainly do.

With a single bound, and a lack of hesitation I launch myself over the table and towards Xlos Lanceheart. Now standing, next to the sitting man, I launch my grasp towards his arm. After having secured a firm grip, I pull the man from his seat. In an act of greeting, I pull him into me, forcefully clapping his back with my free hand before pushing off and relinquishing my grasp. I speak aloud to the confused man after a brief bow.

“How unpleasant to meet your acquaintance Xlos Lance a heart, but we are stuck here together so let us accelerate the process of hatred. What say we fight to the death right here and now? To be honest I consider you a bit of an eyesore and I do believe I would be performing a favour to all the patrons of this here inn, you must concur no? Remain calm Xlossy, I have thou know I jest, I merely jest. That said I must thank thou for not being an aggressor in this most friendly of occasions. Some, nay, most people would of raise thy fist or drew thy blade by now. Oh no, not you. You’re a special one, a bit slow I may reckon but that is not a business in which I should dabble. Speaking of business and the such, I am sorry, I don’t know why exactly we are here, but I do know what we are doing here, at least what I am doing here.”

With the closing of my sentence I snatch the drink off of another patron’s table, and quickly down the thing. “Why don’t we make a joyous time of this much dull day? Rounds of drinks on my name. Order whatever thou heart desire, I shall cover it. Have you no worry, I am here to rescue you all from your drab existence, and whatever else you might need rescuing from, be it the law, your own virginity, creatures worthy of myth, or even your mother in law. Andre Reyes De La Barrera is at your service.”

I am immediately offended by his lack of willingness to enter my home. That being said, I shrug it off as a decision made out haste and nothing more. Perhaps he may be invited over one day as an attendee to some form of celebration, or perhaps just as a guest on a beautiful day. That being said, until some time passes I shall merely listen to what this man has to say.

I am informed that I have been summoned for a meeting in Redwell; the man did however, seem reluctant about releasing further details regarding the reasons behind this summit. Then, as quickly as he arrived upon my doorstep, the fellow was off into the distance. I really don’t understand why he doesn’t just have other people deliver the news for him. I do suppose everyone has there own personal quirks, I suppose journeys may be his.

Shrugging the perceived eccentric nature of this man off of mind, I proceed to enter my villa. I cannot understand why the entire place is devoid of workers. This is certainly not a regular occurrence, much like how messengers rarely stop by this place. Perhaps this all related. I stroll over to my stables, mulling over a few theories in my head before saddling up my most trustworthy steed. Not only is it undeniably loyal, but quick like none other horse in my family’s possession. After preparing the equestrian transport, I pack a few provisions for myself prior to setting out towards Redwell.

I am awoken to a pounding upon the door of my villa. I know I told Rosa to lock the gate prior to sun’s rise, and if I am not mistaken, that is the damn sun illuminating my abode. That being said, with the party last night, followed by the mysterious lights of red, I could understand how she could forget such a task. That being said, I will see to it that she learns not to make that mistake again.

The knocking continues, followed by a meek call from behind the door. From my bed, I bellow out, “Rosa!”
Silence ensues, before being slain by more knocking
“Rosa, get the damn door! You aren’t here to lounge within my home!”
After the lack of response, I begin to suspect that perhaps she is not here. I don’t know what could of happened she is normally a very reliable and well-mannered house-slave. As I try to replay the events of last night through my groggy mind, my focus is sharply cut by another round of knocking.

“I’ll be there in a moment, just please, no more knocking.”

Slowly, I rise from my bed and adorn my clothing for the day. Still trying to shake the grogginess from my system, I slowly approach the front door. I open the door, and I am greeted by a Peace Corporal, donning rather modest attire. A simple messenger. Upon seeing me, he requests my name. Somewhat odd that a messenger would come to me without knowledge of my name. Regardless, I speak with the man.

“My name? My name is a name that although you may have not heard of it before, I will ensure that your children, and your children’s children will know my name as a household legend, as well as a pinnacle of perfection. My name shall be established as a paragon of greatness. My name? My name is Andre Reyes De La Barrera.”

I continue the conversation as I gesture for the man to enter my residence, “Sir, you have piqued the interest of a certain man standing before you. I am going to have to ask of you to explain why you are here. What brings you to my domain. Why now? Forgive any ignorance upon my behalf but I feel it is only natural to wonder what circumstances bring you, to me.”

I grunt in pain as my back is shoved into the wall of the room. Maybe I should of bit my tongue, perhaps I shouldn’t have spat in his face. We all make mistakes, lapses in judgement, but this is certainly a miscue most heinous. Starting an altercation with this man was by far one of my most regrettable decisions in recent memory. Who am I kidding? It’s my only regrettable decision. As I think these thoughts I see the man rear back his right hand, curled into a fist whilst his left hand is affixed firmly around my neck. Just before what would of certainly been a less than desirable moment in my life, a divine intervention like none other occurred. Flashes of red light shine through the nearby window. These, bright red lights clearly caught the attention of my friend here, for his grasp around my neck loosened, and he lowered his right arm. I myself however, am an opportunist.

I quickly raise my right leg, and firmly plant it into his abdomen, using the wall behind me for balance and force. As the aggressor doubles over from the swift kick, I launch my left hand into his face, gouging his eyes with my fingers. Some may consider the attack underhanded, I find it simply, cold, calculated, and efficient. The man, reacting from the pain, grabs my left hand in a blind rage. I can feel him powerfully wrenching my hand. Before things could get worse, I draw my rapier with my right hand. First I pull it across my body, careful to avoid clipping the man before me. Now, having my rapier fully extended behind me, I swing it into his head, swiftly and powerfully, turning my body with the swing for maximum force. The steel strikes his jaw with a resounding thud, followed by the sound of his body hitting the cold floor.

I sheath my sword and walk through the party crowd to see what these lights are all about.

Name: Andre Reyes De La Barrera

Age: 20
Gender: Male

Appearance: Slim figure, but quite athletic, and not particularly tall, standing at 5’10. He has short-medium, black, curly hair and some light stubble. All on a pristine, small figured face that frames his pale blue eyes.

Equipment: He wears a fancy, black leather vest, outlined in strips of gold and complex patterns of purple cloth. This mostly ornamental, but somewhat protective vest is fitted over a white dress shirt, with ruffled sleeves, tied half way down his forearms. At his wrist lies beautiful golden bracelets, and a golden ring, with an amethyst stone framed in the center rests upon his right pinkie finger. His pants are black leather leggings, with gold trim, and his feet have leather boots, with golden buckles. He has a small, purple bandoleer that holds his equipment, and a purple hood that he occasionally wears.

Weapon:
Primary: Blade of Beauty: A long, slim, elegant rapier with an ornamental guard, and brilliantly wrapped handle, with a bright purple and golden cloth interlaced. This blade, although slim, is razor sharp and could pierce through all but the heaviest of armors.
Secondary: Dancing Blaze: He has a few small jars, with an oil based solution that upon breaking, would fix with a substance stored in the lid of the jar, that would ignite the oil. This is useful for creating walls on both land or water, as well as turning ironclad enemies into a raging fire. That being said, he has very few of them.

Mask: A small, golden mask. It rests upon his nose, and frames his eyes. and covers his forehead. Although the gold work is rather simple, it has complex streams of small black opal stones framing larger amethyst stones along the right and left borders of the small mask.

Biography Andre was born to an incredibly wealthy family that stems from royalty. That being said, he himself is born in a long line of naval men. Originally just a merchant family, they eventually built connections with important figures in royalty, from which they amassed their wealth. Although wealthy, they weren’t very respected. This lack of respect is why Andre has been raised to be the first in a long line of fighters. Ever since he was eight, he has private lessons in swordplay from some of the best around. Now it has come time to put his white collar heritage to the test.

Class: Swordsman

Confirmed

1) The events of Littlewood, are at a different time than the scene of New York
2) The government is perfect, or so the average citizen thinks. The government is intent on seeing that everyone is happy. If you aren’t happy, the government will work on fixing that.
3) I may add a wagon.

1) He is an adolescent child who has gone missing. Ivan is his middle name by the way.
2) It’s an Rp, the usual rules apply regarding godmodding and such. If you do something wrong, I will correct it.
3) View it as less of a quest, and more of an event. Things will happen throughout the story and its the players job to react and respond to the events around them as they feel their character should.
4) I will most likely not have a main character, but I will be the main controlling force behind the plot and NPC’s.

My apologies, I realize that I am really giving you no information to bite on, so here is the general idea here. This game is an RP, that will be a little more structured than most, in the sense that you will not be some godlike character who can decimate must NPC’s, nor will you ever control most NPC’s. Your character might get hurt, killed, ect. If the latter happens, I will allow you to make a new character.

In case you are wondering, the narratives are slightly split, but we will spend most of the time in the quaint, beautiful town of Littlewood Creek, and not in the ruins of New York. Any questions regarding the terrain of Littlewood Creek can be asked here. Thank you.

A cold, biting wind sails through the fallen debris of what was once a bustling city. What’s left of New York shivers as the bitter gust of cold air and dust cuts at their exposed skin. he few survivors that are left in the city, maybe even in the world, are huddled together, standing in front of what may turn out to be the last fire lit, at least for a long time. They have no food, no water, and their shelter from the night has been compromised. Upon their withered faces are looks of despair, longing, and a lack of purpose. As the dying flame cackles lightly, an older man, by the name of 40128, or Haes, speaks out to the group, “We might not make it through the night, at least not all of us. I suppose it would be a shame if your fire were to lose it’s flame without knowing what happened at Littlewood Creek. Perhaps you’ve heard of the place, but, well, I doubt you have.”

“Not only is it a beautiful day, but that lunatic who called himself a preacher was finally executed today. His blood is drying on the cool grass outside the courthouse. His corpse was taken into the serene woods outside of our quaint town, where it was promptly disposed of.

In other news, John Ivan Stetson-Ursa was found missing today. He was last seen by his parents, when he went to bed. That being said, a note was found in his bedroom, stating that he was heading into the forest to set free a potted plant. What a silly kid he is. Hopefully he is found before somebody else can harm him.

Thank you for listening to the Littlewood Creek News, we will be on again at 5. Have a nice day and don’t leave the town."

Littlewood Creek might be one of the only places where they play the news on loudspeakers organized throughout the entire town, where everyone will here the news, regardless of where they are or what they are doing. Maybe this place is a little less perfect than everyone seems to think.
