  • Another Class [Asori]

    Having been trained in the element some time ago, Lykeira did her best to recall all that had been explained when she learned it. Her favorite being earth, she had an easier time knowing all the nuances of that one, but Air was one that took a bit more to narrow down for the initial stages. Asori was nearing the end of her life as a Warrior and would soon be ready for the next stage, but first she needed to experience just a little more.

    Night had fallen on the temple some hours ago and Lykeira now stood in the center of the training arena, it's broken grounds illuminated by a score of sconces on the outer walls surrounding the Knight. As she waited, the cinnamon toned witch from Devaron focused the Force through her hands onto the face of a large, flat stone and molded it like putty into the face of her mother. Her mind pictured all the subtle curves and lines until the one that she had lost years ago on Baralou was again staring at her. Grinning to herself as she then carefully molded strands of long hair across the forehead, Lykeira held up the dark grey stone to face her.

    "Hmm."

    There was a rewarding feeling, a validation of some sort to have a Master that hasn’t disappeared on her. There were times when Asori wondered what happened to Monarch, the one who had accepted her into the Sith, had begun her training... only to have vanished. There seemed to be other Sith that seem to drop off the edge of the galaxy then suddenly show up out of the blue. For the longest time, Asori held out hope that Monarch would return, but now that she had Lykeira, such desire has been swept away.

    It was Lykeira who had completed her Warrior training, who had taken her out in search for her first lightsaber crystal, who had watched her build the lightsaber and given her approval in the end. Asori respected her Master and now wanted to make sure that in the end she would become a student Lykeira would approve off.

    “Master?” Asori asked, approaching Lykeira. She had been summoned to the Training Arena once again by her, though she was unsure what for. Was there a new skill she was about to learn? Asori hoped so. “I hope I’m not interrupting.” She added, noticing how Lykeira seemed to be looking at a rock in her hand.

      Glancing up to see her student arrive, the bluish-white flame of the sconces illuminating the young Warrior as she approached, the witch nodded, then set the newly carved stone onto the broken column to her left, facing toward them. Hazel green eyes turned back to Asori once more, "I did in fact. Time to pass on another ability, so hope you're ready."

      Hands rested atop her thighs as she relaxed them from the taxing ability she had just displayed, the result now staring at both of them. "Elements," she began, "Air, Fire, Water, Lightning. We have the chance to learn them all at some point, but starting with Air is the logical beginning for once you learn to manipulate the base element, you'll be able to expand on that and eventually use the others as well." Glancing back to her work once more, "Earth isn't one that the Sith know how to use," her proud gaze returned to Asori. "But, that's a speciality of my old coven, I guess." Taking a deep breath, she soaked in the Force once more and focused on the air molecules around them and began exciting the soft breeze into something more substantial that Asori could notice, the eventual stronger wind building within moments and effecting all around the two females, hair whipping about as the lighter topsoil in the arena created a soft fog along their feet until she let up.

      "Like that. Your initial success will only be a soft breeze, but you'll be able to prove it with the sconces when you get to that point. Focus the Force on the very molecules of air around us first, feel them and make them move."

        “I am.” Asori said, her face firm, hands clenched by her side, a small smile on her face. So, it was another skill, the Warrior thought to herself as she waited patiently for Lykeira to continue.

        Elements, Asori heard about them before, though she thought she wouldn’t learn about them until much later in her training. Discovering she could at least start learning one was exciting. Slowly she felt Lykeira draw the force around her, at the same time the air around them began to pick up, eventually building into a small whirlwind that circled the two of them.

        Hair blew into Asori’s face, she raised a hand to pull her hair back just as the demonstration ended. Her eyes were wide, impressed that her Master had managed to alter the currents, not just that, the strength of the wind with just her will and the Force.

        “Right...” Asori said, now that it was her turn to attempt the skill. She eyed the scones, it seemed she had her work cut out for her. Slowly, Asori focused with the Force. She was told to think about the molecules that the air is comprised of. They were so small... and invisible to the naked eye, part of the Sith Warrior wasn’t sure if she’d be able to do it, but she kept at it.

        Slowly, but eventually small gusts of wind began to form around Asori, they were small and didn’t have much power, but every once in a while, a gust would blow by Asori’s or Lykeira’s bodies, just enough to move a strand or two of hair in the process.

          "Good start," she nodded quietly knowing her own beginnings with the ability weren't spectacular at the outset either. Everyone had to start somewhere. "But, this time I want you to focus the air enough to blow out one of the sconces," she motioned to the nearest on the southern wall. Recalling how her mother utilized the elements as well as the Elder Mother in the Pachmari, Lykeira knew one day she would be that powerful, even without the tome that her coven had kept hidden from her. Numerous occasions had been attempted to gain the book from one of the Elder Witches or the Mother herself, but she had come up empty.

            Asori turned to the sconces that Lykeira pointed out. It’s blaze was more than just a flicker of a single flame. With the breezes she had managed to create thus far, were no where near powerful enough to take out one of those flames.

            But the challenge was sent before her. Focusing the Force with her hands, she tried to create more than just a light breeze. She needed a gust, or better yet, a roaring wind. Asori directed all of her attempts towards the closest sconces with little effect. The last was enough to make the flame jump, sputter and almost go out... but it came back to life which gave the Warrior a distasteful look across her face.

            Her next attempt held more of the determination she felt inside, the darkness of the Force concentrating itself through her will. The air circled around Asori for a second before she forced it towards the sconce. It was stronger than all the others. It moved dust along the ground, metal chains against the walls, and snuffed out the sconce completely.

            Asori smirked, and turned back to her Master.

              Watching and waiting, she could feel Asori's frustration and knew that look firsthand from when she was a young girl, learning new things from her mother. Though her technique was totally different, she was beginning to wonder if the old ways would work better or not. The sconce eventually was snuffed out and Lykeira could tell that her student had put a lot into achieving the goal. For now, that was enough.

              "Practice that as much as you can, eventually you'll be able to snuff out one after another. What I usually do in that instance is picture a tube that I focus the air through, hitting the target that way instead of trying to command a whole area." She shrugged, "But, you got the idea." Perhaps she was a bit like her mother after all, allowing Asori to figure out some things herself.

              Pushing herself up, she used the Force to raise the carved image of her mother to her, then began heading toward the entrance. "Next time we meet, hopefully you'll be about ready for the next level."

                “Same here.” Asori said with a nod of her head. She would practice over and over until she could blow all the sconces out at once. As much as she wanted to move on to the next level, and that she at some level already felt she was ready, Asori knew there was one person she had to meet first.

                “Thank you for the lesson.” Asori said, standing by her Master and giving her a respectful bow. “I won’t let you down.”
