A searing hot and harsh desert
Much of the desert is covered in sand but other part's are made up of hard sand stone littered with ruin's of civilizations that once thrived in this harsh and unforgiving land

Thurstan walked through the desert, having already bought the things he needed from his stop at Isa Al-Kawthar. He now had on a medium sized bag with cold water and food inside of it. He didn't need anything else for this place, because he knew he could make do. He took out one of the 10 canteens full of water he had bought and took a few quick sips. He put it back in his bag and wiped a bead of sweat off of his head.

The sun's glare and heat took a toll on the caravan as it hiked its way through the desert, cloths draped over the guards heads as they hiked along the wagon that held the researchers.
"This better be worth it" Varian grumbled as he looked over to the wagon, the researchers writing in there notes as they enjoyed the shade provided by the wagon, the sun obviously bringing out a bit of bitterness that resided within Varians personality.
"I didin't know it would be this hot" Kashin said "I never really have been in the desert, I arrived in Al-Kawthar, thought it was pretty nice and decided a hike through the desert to some old ruins would be fun!"
"Well, now you know" Varian answered "So how far are these ruins does anyone know?" Varian called out for an answer

Scarlet walked alongside the Caravan, her Claymore sat horizontally across her back at hip level, her left arm hung by her side as she slowly walked, while her right arm was raised and her right hand was holding the scarf she always had around her neck and raising it to cover her mouth and nose, Scarlet as she walked with the Caravan heard what Kashin and Varian were saying and she called out to them from the other side of the Caravan.

"If you'd like to know how long it'll take to get to the ruins from where we are, why don't you ask the researchers since they could probably answer your question"

Scarlet finished as she looked around at the guards, however while she looked over the guards she wondered if she was to revealed to the sun compared to the others as she looked over herself and all she was wearing was her scarf, her pitch black armour and that was it, the parts of her skin that weren't covered by the armour were in direct sunlight as she wasn't wearing a coat or cloak like the others. But while Scarlet walked she moved her left arm to sit on the Claymore which lay on her back horizontally at hip level, she looked over the other guards and tossed up the idea in her mind whether to start a conversation with one or two of them so she had something to do while she waited and walked.

Thurstan walked through the desert once more, taking a sip of water. He noticed a caravan over to his right, and he decided to walk over to it. Once he could there, he just sat there and looked at it, taking everything in.

"I suppose that would be best" Varian said as he walked over to the researchers and start a small conversation with them, the caravan slowly moving through the desert

"So... uhm, whats your name?" Kashin asked Scarlet "Mine Kashin, I invited Mister Varian over there to join in on this expedition, he sold me this sword" Kashin held up the short blade he had bought from Varian "Well made... though I cant really use swords, but the person im guarding wanted me to be armed but im better in unarmed combat" Kashin flushed a bit in his cheeks "By the way your uhm very pretty. oh and thats a nice looking sword, are you good at using it? errr sorry... I'm not anoyying you am I?"

"Thank you for the compliment Kashin... and no you aren't annoying me"

Scarlet said however as she spoke she raised her left hand and rubbed her left hand with her right, but while it looked like it was just habit, it was actually to point out the ring sitting on her finger making it clear she was married so Kashin had to be careful with how he acted towards her. However she avoided answering the question about her skills with the sword and instead fell silent before she lowered both her hands and then said.

"If you don't use swords and usually stick to unarmed combat, why bother getting the sword in the first place?"

Scarlet finished her tone reserved, however there was a hint of sarcasm in her voice making it slightly clear she thought what Kashin had done was a little foolish.

Thurstan watched the two people talk, noticing the woman seemed slightly uncomfortable. Or maybe she wasn't. He wasn't very good at deciphering human emotions as the only humans he really spends time with are the ones he's killing. He decided to watch them more, not knowing what else to do.

As Varian discussed the distance to the ruins with a few of the researchers took out his water skin and took a swig from it "So another day or so of full traveling?" Varian said to confirm the answer he was given, his eye's scanning the horizon, his eye's landing on a particular individual "A lone traveling? I guess he decided to travel along the-" Varian stopped mid sentence as the man he saw drew his sword, the mans eye's locked onto one of the sand dunes.

(A few minutes earlier)
Thurstan, not readily apart of the caravan decided traveling with them would be something to do, traveling through the desert alone could be both lonely and dangerous so it wasn't unusual to have adventures and travelers hitch rides with trade caravans and most caravans had no problem with it seeing as more who sought to hitch a ride also carried weapons and provided protection if need be.

Even then though Thurstan wasn't one to readily join up in a social sense and the caravan seemed to have plenty of guards with it already.
"What now?' Thurstan asked himself as he looked up into the sky wiping his brow, at that moment his ear twitched as a faint but distinct shriek echoed from over one of the dunes, he quickly looked around seeing that no one else had noticed he drew his sword and gave a shout to alert the others "SHRIEKERS!" He yelled as another shriek rang out, this one much louder and much closer than the last one.

After the few minutes of wait, he saw the Shriekers, coming fast. He counted around 26 of them. Bigger then the average pack, but not enough to cause a big threat. After another minute or so, the herd arrived. Some ran past him to other members of the caravan, but a good portion, around 7 of them, came at him. He rolled out of the way, narrowly avoiding a claw from one of the Shriekers. He slashed the head off of one of the, before stabbing another in the gut. He looked to his right and saw two pouncing towards him. He focused his strength into the blow and cut the two in half with a single strike. He looked back at the other three and saw one trying to pounce at him while he wasn't looking. He kicked the thing in the face, hearing the bones snap as it fell to the ground dead. He chuckled, finding it funny that he had killed the thing in a single kick, but now wasn't the time to laugh. He killed the last two in another charged swing. He sighed and cleaned his blade before sheathing it and watching everyone else handle their Shriekers.

As the Shriekers rushed in to attack Scarlet turned her attention towards them, however unlike the traveller who had just joined them, she reacted slowly and calmly, she slowly reached behind her and her right hand grasped the handle of her blade, she then slowly drew her blade she swung her Claymore and the way it cut through the air made it clear that it was heavier than she made it look. Scarlet however didn't move, instead strange liquid started flowing out of her body flowing in the air around Scarlet like an aura of fire, however as a Shrieker turned it's attention towards her before attacking the liquid moved in response and created a shield before becoming solid and causing the Shrieker's attack to bounce off the solid shield, the shield then turned back into the flowing liquid aura as Scarlet swung at the Shrieker, though her blade didn't touch the Shrieker and instead a wave of the liquid flew towards the Shrieker and cut it clean in half, Scarlet then turned around as the liquid formed a shield and deflected another attack from a different Shrieker.

Scarlet without moving her body swung her sword backwards without using her left hand to swing the Claymore, and cleaved the Shrieker apart spilling it's blood and guts all over the blade and ground, Scarlet then looked around as the liquid went back to flowing around her, she sighed as she watched Shrieker's approach the researchers so she simply raised her left hand and the liquid seemed to respond to her flowing towards the researchers and then surrounding the Shriekers and then becoming solid cages around the Shriekers. Scarlet smiled cruely as she clenched her left hand and the cages of liquid compressed and crushed the Shriekers killing them instantly.

Thrustan kneeled on the ground, watching the rest of the caravan kill the Shriekers. He watched the girl he noticed earlier using some sort of magic to kill the Shriekers. He watched her, examining the way she fought. He wasn't impressed though. He honestly couldn't give less of a shit about who fighting style, he just had nothing better to do.

As the Shreikers charged Kashin drew his sword and jumped up into the air disappearing and instantly reappearing on one of the shreikers backs his sword already dug into the creatures back causing the shreiker to tumble into the sand mid-run, its body now on top of Kashin and pinning him
“Huh? oh-” A shreiker appeared over Kashin, its mouth open and ready to take a bite of the now trapped Kashin “Shit” Kashins aid as he finished his sentence and closed his eye's. Just as he did he herd the shreiker cry in pain. Kashin peeked open his eye's to see the shreiker have a few iron darts dug into its body the creature reeling up on it back legs, a sword quickly being thrust into its side killing the creature instantly
“It's not that heavy, push it off and get up” Varian said
“MISTER! You saved my life!” Kashin said quickly struggling to his feet
“Yea yea” Varian said looking around, the shreikers quickly being finished off “We were lucky it was only shreikers”

Scarlet sighed as she swung her Claymore so the blood would come off and splatter on the ground, she then moved her right arm to sheath her Claymore, when Scarlet finished sheathing her blade she looked around before seeing the attack wave of Shreikers was gone, she looked around at Varian after he finished speaking and she said in response.

"Whatever comes to pass, I doubt that any enemy we go up against will be anymore challenging than the Shreikers"

Scarlet sighed before swaying slightly as her legs gave way a little, it was clear that the liquid she had used that had come from her body had drained Scarlet to some degree, however the liquid that was left started to flow back into her body and after some time Scarlet seemed more sure of her footing.

'There are people approaching the ruins, they are a days travel from here'
'I am aware of that Velvet I can sense them same as you can'
'Are you going to do something about it?'
'And what can I do from within the seal that you and I are placed inside of Velvet?'

Uriel thought as she hung there against a wall in a room covered in seals, Uriel's hands and feet were chained against the wall on the opposite side of where the door was, the door however had a seal that made the door unbreakable from the inside while easily accessed from the outside. Uriel's eyes were closed as she was in a way asleep, Uriel could sense the small group of people who were getting closer to the ruins, or rather she could sense their souls. Uriel however then continued to think to herself.

'Are you suggesting that I somehow get the attention of those people once they arrive and get them to release us?'
'It's the only way both of us can be free from the time seal we were placed in years ago'
'You mean it's the only way for me to get free, after all this time you still haven't gotten used to the fact that you are just a split part of my personality which resides inside my own mind'
'I'm still you so it still makes it both of us'

Uriel sighed internally as she went silent and simply continued to wait inside the time seal she was stuck inside of.

A horse rushed towards the caravan, holding onto a man, lying down on the saddle. The man, Hanzo, was passed out on the horse, blood dripping from his ears slowly, due to the loud shrieks of the shreikers. The horse jumped up, and kicked him off next to the caravan. The sudden thud into the sand woke him up, getting the sand in his mouth, and staring into the sun. As he weakily got up, he noticed the caravan next to him.

"Damn, those shreikers are loud..." Hanzo said quietly
