Its a floating contitent, inhabited mainly by people who can fly. Teleportation to and from this country is impossible except for a special port at the edge of the continent.
The weather is mainly cool and wet.

Camilla sighed when she transported to her new castle—not technically hers, just where she would reside for the moment. For being up in the air, it was relatively cool and moist. They must be over the ocean or some damp area; that, or the elevation is good enough for the moisture. She couldn’t tell; she was not particularly good in the human sciences. The room she first saw when she first landed below the land and flew up here by making a water “bridge” and slipped through a window must be one of the main rooms, holding large, comfy looking chairs. A few tables sat under windows, one of them cracked open to let in pure light.
“Home sweet cold home,” she murmured sullenly to herself while she strolled down the hallway after she found the hidden door. So far, the only rooms that she’s looked in so far were four bedrooms, an elongated dining room and stumbled across the kitchen, which should be updated soon. The cooking ware looked worse for use. She felt bored exploring the place, so she walked back into the main room when the woman teleported in.
The two looked at each awkwardly, till Camilla felt the silence annoying the hell out of her.
“Nice to meet you miss. Looks like today we’ll be working together—kind of.” The woman just looked blankly at her, making the sea woman sigh and half close her eyes. “My name’s Camilla.”
The general blinked and nodded.
“It is nice to meet you, Camilla. I’m Shima.” The two nodded in acknowledgement till Camilla felt he bored silence killing her again.
“So…you’re a general for Darkness. Why did you join him when he asked?” Shima blinked and shrugged.
“I dunno. I just felt like it at the time.”
Camilla just blinked, feeling stupefied by this simple reason. “That’s it?” Shima shrugged again.
“For the moment, I guess.”
Camilla only nodded her first impression of this woman a bit query and relatively quiet. Oh well. It didn’t matter to her. The only job is to protect her, not talk to her every blooming second.
“Well, I’d love to stay and chat, but I think I’m going to sleep,” Camilla started and headed for the well hidden door, where she paused before touching the handle. “I can use one of the guest bedrooms, right?”
Shima shrugged. “So long as you don’t use the lower level bedrooms or the one at the very end, the rest are available.”
Camilla nodded, removing the white hood from her face, some of her silvery hair flowing out and her pointed ears showing. With ease she lowered into a bow. Shima’s eyes widened a little, not expecting the kind gesture.
“Thank you for being hospitable toward me,” in one swift move she stood erect and vanished through the small opening in the door and closed it silently, her footsteps barely heard outside the door before they faded. Shima looked to the door, tilting her and blinking, then smiled.
“What a strange girl.”

The castle floated gently amongst the clouds. It was a gigantic figure, but still it remained unseen by all. Arcson's greatest, biggest, and most majestic base; the sky headquarters: Helios. Helios, which held many secrets and technologies, floated uselessly and purposeless for months because of needed repairs, but now was the time for it to be reactivated.

Air continuously blows in through the many open windows through the library, bringing with it the cool dampness of the high altitudes. Camilla sat in the library, flipping through multiple books but already bored with them, for she has read others like them with similar plots; almost nothing was original nowadays, but she treasured it when a good novel came out now and then.
But books do not interest her at the time, for out on the table near the open window she sat, a blade plucked out, a couple needles resting on the table’s surface and one in her hand which she carved at, pulling away the once good-sized sea urchins spikes to make as pointy, but not delicate, as possible. Sighing and placing the final spike down, she carefully stowed the new temporary weapons and knife walking to a window’s ledge, leaning out and drowning in the cool air’s sensation. In the distance a bird called, most likely a bird of prey, but considered it odd considering how high the isle floated. Coming into view a black dot emerged, and, coming closer for her eyes to sustain, a black hawk with a fair wingspan flew in, soaring in above the port and above the castle, blocking the sun for a minuscule second it seemed beautiful in a way she hasn’t appreciated that was not related to the water. She guessed at where it would land, but from her lack of knowledge of the castle, headed in the direction toward the room where she first came in.
Leaving her cloak in her room, making it easier for her to walk and run in the halls, she bolted for the main room, where Shima stood near the lone open window, for the rest were closed and the hawk lay perched near its edge on a small platform. Wind lashed softly about the room, rustling her white top and pushing her blue pants against her thighs like she just came out of water.
The hawk seemed to communicate to Shima, for the woman stood at the hawk and looked at it eye to eye, the bird ruffling its wings now and then. Now that she could see it up close, Camilla noticed blotches and streaks of golden brown and crimson, smaller white feathers decorating the rims of its eyes. Along with most of its feathers, its eyes were coal black but shown with multi facets of color when hey gleamed the right way in the light.
Shima nodded and the hawk squawked in approval flapping its wings.
“We will come as soon as we are ready.” The genera answered but rolled her eyes when the bird did not look.
“Nice to meet both of you,” it spoke in a regular man’s voice, Camilla thinking she saw the bird of prey grinning through its beak. Swiftly it turned and hopped to the window’s ledge and hopped out, its long wings bursting out immediately when it jumped, soaring off till they could see it not longer.
“So, who was that?” Camilla asked when it felt quiet again. Shima turned to her, the general drawing a blank face then smiled.
“A messenger,” she answered, looking at the window before glancing in her direction. “Darkness wants us at Underdark as soon as possible.”
Camilla gazed at the ground, keeping her eyes closed and opening them again, her eyes seeming dazed. Shima looked at the woman and let her head tilt to the side questioningly. “Camilla?”
The sea woman looked up with a start and blinked, looking around the room.
“Right then,” she mumbled, starting toward the door. “I’ll get my cloak. Best not be late.”
Shima nodded and followed her till they separated and each headed to their respectable rooms, though the only thing that Camilla had to do was fetch her cloak, feeling its simple weight on her shoulders, and wait outside on one of the balconies for the general to come out and together they would leave.

Checking to make sure the girl was lying in her new bed comfortably in the larger of the many rooms, Camilla wandered the windows, making sure Shima made the necessary preparations, including the basic wards to close her in before she came back and finished up the rest of the wards to hold the new prisoner in.
She had better be lucky she was getting a nice big room, Camilla thought, comparing it to hers, which would be about medium sized compared to the “master,” even though it just had nicer furniture and such in here than in Camilla’s. Though it did not matter to her much; she was content with her accommodations since she did not care much, and would rather live in the sea.
Closing the door behind her gently after making sure everything was secure and the girl still in a trance, she locked the locks on the door, engaging the two weak wards there. Hopefully that Shima woman will come in time to replace them with much stronger wards; it irritated Camilla did not use their full extent or capabilities, even if the time gap is short. Oh well, that was the succubus’s problem, not hers.

Shima entered the room she had given Shirube and saw the girl laying on her bed, still in a trance. After placing permanent barriers in the room, Shima walked over to Shirube and touched her Shirube’s forehead. Shirube opened her eyes and saw the succubus standing above her and through instinct, kicked at Shima, but Shima avoided it and stood in front of Shirube’s bed as she sat up and looked around, then at Shima, “Where am I?” asked Shirube with anger in her voice, but Shima only did a little giggle, “Your in Kazurial…the island in the sky”.

Silver’s eyes narrowed to slits. “Kazurial? I didn’t think the place was actually inhabited. Much less the likes of you people,” she spat, looking away from the succubus.
“Yes, well, Darkness likes to keep eyes on the world from different angles.”
“This is unbelievable,” the dhampir grumbled, sitting with her back against the wall on the end of the bed far away from Shima. She never expected a prisoner’s room to be this luxurious, honestly. The room seemed to cover just about as much space as a living room in an inn, equivalent to the size of her old room in her family’s mansion. Oh god, Grandmother…
Silver clenched her fists. The old woman would be alright, but knowing that there was someone who could do that much damage to her and Jyaden pissed her off to no end, besides Darkness.
Shima looked blankly at the girl then cracked a grin. “Obviously you don’t like him.”
Silver glanced at her like she was the dumbest thing on the planet. “Gee, you think?”
“It’s also obvious you’re pregnant.”
The girl seized at the statement, her muscles tensing and ready to fight if she needed to. “What of it?” she grumbled not looking pleased. Shima blinked and looked out the window.
“I can stop the growth of the baby…if you want. It’ll just keep it from growing, while also protecting it no matter what happened to you. Darkness can’t harm it whatsoever.”
Her eyes returned to being narrow, looking suspiciously at the general. Trusting one of them was not on the top of her priorities list, nor should she ever; but telling from Shima’s facial expression and body language, she was rather dead honest. Hunching against the stone wall, Silver looked away from the succubus, her brows knitting together till she thought they would stay that way forever as her grandmother used to tell her, knowing if she made the wrong decision it could come out badly for the baby if something should ever happen.
“Fine.” She huffed uneasily and rolled her eyes, not bearing to look at the woman. “Do what you want.”
Shima nodded and held two fingers to her mouth blowing gently on them while whispering to herself. Placing her fingers, nails pointed toward Silver, close to her stomach barely grazing the dress, light crackled from the fingertips and shot into the dhampir’s body, the girl momentarily flinching from the indirect entrance through her skin. Clutching her abdomen she glared up at Shima.
“How do I know you’re not killing it?” she hissed, blood rising to her cheeks, her eyes shifting.
“Believe me or not, the baby won’t grow in you any further since I momentarily stopped it, but also shield it from any future harm. I can remove the barrier right now, if you wish though.”
“I’ll be fine,” the words rushed past her lips faster than she could think about them. What about the baby? She didn’t speak up for it.
“Well, I guess that settles it. Whenever you want, I can remove it, but just remember it’ll be left vulnerable by your unwise decision making.”
Turning on her heel, Shima quietly exited, the door closing without a creek. Running to the door in a flash, Silver tried the knob, but withdrew her hand when lightning sparked on the cold metal. Squeezing her eyes shut Silver slammed the door with her forearms, shaking the solid wooden door and slinked into a chair, letting the air that blew in from a cracked window brush her hair from her eyes.

Altec landed on the edge of Kazurial. "This place is awesome," he said as he observed the place. "I should've learned about this place years ago," he said as he sounded like he was praising it. "Oh?" Altec said as he looked down and saw Ryfeer hanging on the edge of Kazurial. "Oh sorry about that," Altec said as he was rubbing his head.
"Just get me up before I fall," Ryfeer said as he was hanging with one hand.
"Calm down," Altec said as he moved the air around Ryfeer causing him to float and land on the ground. "there you go," he said to him as he looked forward. "There's a gate, let's go," he said as he started walking towards the gate.
Ryfeer quickly got back on his feet and started to follow Altec.

Slamming her weight against the open window and reaching her arms through, only to meet invisible rubber that stretched as far as it could before pushing her back, Silver sighed and leaned on the wall. "Damn it! I can't even get through this one!" she screamed in anger. "Son of a $itch! Let me out of here before I rip your throat out!" she screamed to the open air, hoping someone would listen to her measly threat. Sliding to the floor and leaning against the slick, cool stone wall, she let her frustraed tears out, letting them dampen her cheeks. It felt like almost a week and a half since she came here by force, her baby not growing inside of her. AFter the first few days, her body didn't know how to react to the succubbus's spell, trying to feed the womb but resulting in her receiviing cramps and little nutrition to keep her mind and body stable. Eating all the available food she could when someone brought in her meals--most of the time Camilla--Silver ate every bite but still felt starving.
"I can't stand being here, I need to get out and save my baby," she muttered when the crying died down. But nobody can know what I'm doing here or else Darkness might do something to me I might regret, she thought carefully.
Lighting different colored candles and placing them on the windowsills, she thought over what she knew about succubbuses. To be truthful, she didn't know much because she thought they were fictoral creatures of lore. The only ones she's heard of were in ancient folktales she heard in the nearest town as a little girl when Stephen took there secretly...
Grandma. She has to get back there--to Grandma and Sango and the others, to let Sango know the baby is alright. But is it alright?
After figuring out her future escape plan, she knew she had to convince the succubbus to remove the spell. All she needed was a little brain power, candles, plants, and she could probably escape and make it to the land below. That is, without being killed.

"Mmmm," she murmured, the water moving in the air like an agitated snake. "Something's not right here. There's a couple creatures here that don't usually visit. Camilla leaned against the cool wall, appreciating the constant breeze that gently blew in through the open windows. Shima sat in her usual cushy chair, contemplating this.
"What do you think of this?" the succubbus questioned her.
"I don't know, but it's a little unnerving there are some new visitors here. You may want to talk to the girl about it," she nodded her head in the direction of Silver's room. "She may be trying something too."
"Do I honestly look like I care much if a prisoner escapes? They won't have much transportation in getting to the ground level."
"Yes, but if they had friends who can fly, that's another thing," Camilla counterpointed after throwing a sea urchin's needle point blank in the opposite wall above Shima's head, narrowly missing her scalp and the chair. Shima lightly grinned.
"Good point. I'll go talk to her, then." Sighing, she pushed herself from the cushy chair, stretching her arms as high as they could go and strolled past the Judgment woman. "Could you do...you know, your thing?" she asked, not sure how to word it. Camilla smirked. Already she was liking the strange woman.
"I'll check the grounds for anything suspicious," she confirmed, drawing out the needle with the little stream of water she just controlled, "and I'll kill anyone who appears disturbing."
"You kill the fun all the time," Shima joked.
"I know." The sea woman grinned.

Altec and Ryfeer walked in the grand castle and then Altec stopped for a moment to close his eyes.
"What are you doing?" Ryfeer said to Altec.
"We're not alone," Altec said as he kept on walking forward," Common let's go."
Ryfeer nodded and started to follow Altec.
After a few minutes Ryfeer and Altec reached a door. They stepped through the door and it led them to the outside but in a different part of the floating castle.
Ryfeer started to move a little bit from the wind. "Man the wind is fierce up here," he said as was slowly moving.
Altec looked at Ryfeer and then looked down at his feet. Suddenly Ryfeer's feet were still and holding itself on the ground.
"There you can move regularly now," he said to Ryfeer. Altec started to look around as he felt something. "Something doesn't feel right," he said to Ryfeer as he couldn't figure it out.

“That will not be necessary, Camilla” said a voice from behind the two women. They both turned to see Noel standing behind them. Shima raised one of her thin eyebrows, “So you were the third one…correct?” asked Shima, Noel nodded. Camilla walked up to Noel, “Why don’t you want me to kill them?” asked Camilla. Noel walked passed her, “I need them alive for my plan to work…just keep them busy until I arrive next to you…I’ll handle them after that” said Noel as he started to walk out of the chamber. “Where are you going then?” asked Shima, Noel looked back at Shima, “I’m going to speak with your guest” said Noel. Shima did a slight chuckle, “Very well, the barrier around the room should let you enter now” said Shima as she snapped her fingers. Noel nodded and left the chamber. ‘
**********
Shirube was sitting in one of the corners when she heard the door to her room begin to open. Shirube instant got up and extended her nails and charged at the one entering the room. She saw it was Maximillion Noel and stopped before she struck him. “You…” said Shirube as she recoiled back, “Your Sango’s Sensei…you’re the one who betrayed Sango!!!” yelled Shirube as she charged at him, but Noel disappeared and reappeared behind her. Shirube looked back at Noel and glared at him, “What do you plan on doing with me?” asked Shirube with anger in her voice. Noel looked at her, “I’m sorry…” began Noel. Shirube’s face softened, “What are you sorry for?” asked Shirube, Noel spoke again, “I had no intention of getting anyone else involved in my plan…but this is the only way I would be able to get Sango to fight me” said Noel. Shirube looked at him and lowered her arms, “You kidnapped me so you could fight Sango? Where is he now?!” asked Shirube loudly. Noel looked at her, “I don’t know exactly where he is…but I do know he is searching for you…right now, finding you and keeping you safe is more important to him then destroying Darkness” said Noel as he walked closer to her. Shirube grew wide-eyed and fell to her knees, “Sango…” she said as tears started to form in her eyes. Noel looked at her, “Even as I taught him…he never showed any passion towards anyone except a passion to kill Darkness…I’m curious, what made Sango change his mind about what he is passionate about?” asked Noel as Shirube looked up at him.

Her eyes burning, she looked up at him in disgust. "What is he passionate about now? It's something that you once understood yourself when you were alive! When your wife was alive!" she cried, fighting to stand on her feet. "It's called...love," she huffed, her calves shaking under her weight as if she exercised too much she found muscles she never knew existed and was terribly sore. Trembling to the closest chair, the dhampir collapsed in the soft leather and furs. "Why do you want to fight him so badly? We have to find a way to defeat Darkness so that this terrible reign will end! Please, stop messing with him mentally this way!" Holding her arms over her stomach protectively, a faint thought came to mind, it's also to protect the future for our baby.

"That something is me." a voice echoed in the open area. Water shot past them, narrowly missing their necks as the two dodged, Ryfeer having to dodge again as the water divided into two snakes and went after both of them before Altec dissipated it with the air pressure.
A long, slim woman emerged from the high ledge, bending over the railing to peer down on them like peasants. "Nice to meet you; I'm Camilla, and it was a horrible mistake for you to come here." Jumping over the rail with ease, she jumped from young fruit tree to tree and landed with barely a sound. A long, winding water serpent emerged from the edge of the floating island, looking more like a dragon with its long jawline spreading open to reveal a row of short, thick teeth.
Water floated round her innocently, but grew spindly and sharp looking like glass or ice.
"But thank you for visiting."

"What a nice welcoming guest," Altec said sarcastically as he clasp his hands together. "I'm sorry to intrude though, but no can do," he said as the air around him started to shift around. "We're searching for a person named Camilla. " he said as slowly the air began to form something. "Maybe you know her?" he said as the form solidified into a Gryphon like creature. "Or maybe that's you," he said as his hands split apart from each other.

Ryfeer quickly drew his katana and then charged forward towards the unknown lady. His body suddenly blurred and he was gone. He reappeared in front of the lady and then swung his katana at her.

Noel looked at Shirube, “Please do not talk to me as if I do not remember what it is like to be alive…I may have died once, but that was to protect Sango…” said Noel in an emotionless tone. Shirube looked up at him, “Then why are you on Darkness’s side?” yelled Shirube as she continued to hold herself. Noel looked Shirube in the eyes, “That is my own business…” said Noel as he walked towards the window. Shirube calmed down a little and looked at Noel, she was surprised that he had an air of gentleness about him, and yet he also had an air of strength and safety about him as well. Shirube looked down and spoke in a soft voice, “Can I ask you something…”, Noel turned slightly in order to see her. Shirube continued with the same soft voice, “Why Sango? Why is Sango a content target for such horrible things? First his clan was slain, then he was given a bounty, after that he was nearly killed by Darkness twice, and now you…the one person he loved the most…betrayed him…so tell me, Why Sango? What has he done to deserve the suffering he lives through everyday of his life…” yelled Shirube as a river of tear streamed down her face. Noel looked at her and sighed, “You have no idea how many times I’ve asked myself that very same question…” said Noel as he crossed his arms. Shirube looked up with surprise and looked at Noel. Noel turned to looked at Shirube, “Every time I would ask him when I trained him…he would always tell me that he would rather live with all the pain and suffering in the world than allow someone he cares about suffer through any pain…” said Noel with a gentle smile. Shirube looked at him and put her hands over her face as she cried even more. Noel walked up to Shirube, “Fate chose Sango to suffer…and Sango accepted fates choice with open arms…its just the way he is, and I’m sure you know you can’t change him once his mind is made up” said Noel as he walked passed Shirube towards the door to leave the room. Shirube turned and grabbed Noel’s haori and Noel stopped and looked back at Shirube. “Please…” said Shirube through her sobs, “…Don’t fight him…you will only cause him more pain” said Shirube as she let go of Noel’s haori. Noel looked at Shirube, “I’m afraid that is impossible…” began Noel, “…Fighting me…is what Sango wants…not me” said Noel as he walked towards the door. Shirube watched him leave, “Shirube Kaze…” began Noel as he looked at her, “…Stay strong…for Sango’s sake…” said Noel as he left the room, locking Shirube in the room alone again.
