Standing in the familiar training hall of the academy, Its cold stone floor covered with years of blood sweat and tears and the large stained glass window in the roof, your instructor said that by the time you finished your time here you would know exactly how many shards of glass made up the image of the faceless hero vanquishing the hordes of darkness, he wasn't wrong. Your old instructor Taugris is leaning upon one of the large stone pillars that flank either side of the room itching under his eye patch with a large grizzled hand covered in scars. You will always remember the first time you saw him fight for a human male in his 70s he certainly knew how to move.
Taugris steps forward and stands in front of the assembled people here he opens his mouth and pauses for a second before his voice echoes around the lofty chamber
"Congratulations you have all finally graduated, It doesn't matter what brought you here be it ambition, fame or being forced here by your parents. I am proud of everyone of you when you arrived you where all hopeless from being spoiled by your parents i didn't think you would make it but you have all made it.” You have learned from your 2years here that this constitutes a rousing speech from instructor Taugris as the elderly man turns his shoulder length swishing as he turns this will probably be the last time you see his golden mail or his singular eye glaring at you in disgust as you failed to be able to properly recite the 378 different varieties of fairy.
As Taugris leaves the room a women enters passing him they look at each other briefly before nodding and carrying on there paths. You have never seen this women before she is short for a human her torso is covered in skin tight leather armour that looks very thin, to the point it would offer very little protection her lower body has a long flowing skirt with a cut up on side to better aid with mobility her face is very stern and dominated by a large black tattoo signifying her as a master hunter. The women opens her mouth but no words come out she closes it again and looks at you all in turn before finally speaking, her voice is harsh as a winters wind”I am Asheena, how ever you shall refer to me as Sir from now on. Ill keep this brief your all going to die anyway. Your first target is in the town of Brackenbalick the Elves there have been having issues with children going missing. That is all. Your portal will open in an hour, do as you will until then.
