Well, how do I start? Or where, I should say. I guess telling you that I was born just like any average lupe would help. Or maybe not. Either way, I was normal at one point. She sighed, ears drooping slightly. Well, now I live in this city because of my profession. The city has no streets, all of our homes are conjoined and we travel from each building by rooftop. Our council leader... or "mayor" as you humans might call it, decided it would be best to keep all of us Necromancers safe.
Oh, You don't know what a necromancer is, do you? She laughs, and smiles, showing off some rather sharp looking teeth. I'll explain that a little later.
I do not live with anyone. I do not allow myself to get attached or close to anyone. Not anymore. I have had my share of love and loss of love. I've learned that keeping to myself is the best choice. Heck, unless I find a pack of immortal lupes, I don't think I could live normally.
I am accompanied by the occasional pest- but nothing more. There are always some mortals that are curious about my profession. So I promise them I will show them..
She stands up and motions for you to follow her into the dark cave...
Upon entering the cave, it is instantly illuminated. Subtlely comes into view, up to her chest and stomach in water. She looks different, too. She is now wearing a black anubis style mask that takes up all of her face- leaving holes for her eyes which are glowing white now. The collar on her neck is the same, with an exception of the jewel which has a dark glow about it. She also has two gold bells tied around the base of her tail.
Well, you ready? Her white, pupiless eyes staring into the depth of the cave. This is the first gateway, There are nine in all- the last three being the point of no return. I cannot go past the seventh gate, but the current will take you the rest of the way.
Within the first four gates, you will see many demons attempting to rebel against the weak current. It is my job to basically wrangle them all up and head them in the right direction. Usually when I explain to them the situation they are in, they are more willing to go peacefully. There's always a few who will try to put up a fight.
She chuckles again, wiggling her tail, causing the bells to ring, echoing throughout the cave.
Yup. Lost my tail in a nasty fight. He thought he could get my bells- because he figured out the trick to them. They control his kind whenever I ring them. He was a smart one. Usually they cant touch me. She sighs, and pauses before continuing.
That was the first and last time that will ever happen. She stops, now approaching a large stone archway. Just past it, the waters are a little more rough and there is a faint screaming in the distance.
Alright, have fun. She rings the bells on her tail once, twice, a third time, and all the lights go out.
I have many lupes in my family, and some... odd creatures. She says, flatly, trying to recollect all of her family members.
Lonnor is probably my favorite sibling. I have taken him many times into the underworld, in fact, I took him there once to visit his long lost friend. It was a very dramatic experience, knowing that I helped her soul into the underworld, but my job has no exceptions. He understood, and has no hard feelings towards me.
Vertonas. Well. She's.. She pauses, searching for the word. Annoying. I suppose you have to have a thing for hyperactivity and people who are full of energy in order to hang out with her.
Faepris I think there's more good to her than meets the eye. Speaking of eye, she's got a really neat robotic eye which can see through stuff, or see in heat vision. I kind of wish I had one of those.
Vaomie kind of reminds me of myself, in a way. She's trapped between two worlds. I have never visited her before, on that island, but I plan on it one day. I really think her and I would get along.
I hear we are adding more members to our family every day, but alas, I am taken away from my home due to my travels, so I have yet to meet most of them.
None so far! How sad!
I loved someone once. Then they passed the ninth gate. Now I find there is no need for love, for they will always pass the ninth gate before I do.
...unless I can find an immortal.
What is there to say about _gossip? Other than her being very supportive, deranged and caring, not a whole lot. She is a great person, once you get to know her. Send her a neomail if you'd like!
