Fourteen people, most of them woman. That was an awfully small start for a nation, especially one with a grandiose aim such as this one, but time was short for the Nameless King so he could not put it off anymore. Even like this, there were sevaral close calls when he rescued his people from the scientists' captivity, much more than he would have liked, so it had to do for now. There was just no other option. Security around the experimental facitilties have been tightened too and even if he was invulnerable according to his own senses, he had learned not to trust even himself. The machines that bled out into reality were not reliable, and an instinct was even less so. But even so, he swore that he would press on, that he would lead these people to safety. And lo and behold, there they were. Though everyone was exhausted and not even his speech helped much, they found a good place to hide from the eyes of the scientists, the eyes of those who would come after them. However, now they would have to make their home here. Yes, this was the place. Deep in the woods and etched into the side of a small hill was the cave that he found before he started sending out the letters. There were no meadows nearby, nor any clearing, just the sheer form of the rocks surrounding the small group, and though it was desperate sight, the Nameless King hoped that his people would be able to understand. Here, surrounded by tall trees, they would be safe from the air patrols, the thermal scanners and even recon drones as the military did not dare to use them in palces like this in fear of the wildlife. There was no other place better suited than this to hide, so the Nameless King turned to the fourteen who made it here. "Does it look beautiful, my people? I know that you have come a long way to take a break from when we set foot on the shore and when you have last heard my words, but this is the last stop on our road towards a new nation. As small as this cave is, it holds enormous potential the likes of which the world has never even dreamed of! We might be surrounded by hills, rocks, ground and jungle, but it is this place which will protect us. But first things first, my people. Though we may have survived the longest of all journey, there is still much to do. Each one of you will be assigned a role that they must keep during the following days that will turn into weeks. Keep this role in mind and even if it hurts you, perform it to the fullest and remember why you are doing this! You are here to make something new, something that no one ever has established before, a safe haven for those that have been hurt!" "Now, as for your tasks," said the Nameless King as he set his bag down on the ground. "Vexor. Though I know the layout of this island, you are the one who is responsible for scouting every nook and cranny around this area. Marie, Lilith and Tenna will go with you. I am sorry to hurt you, Tenna, but Lilith will have to use your blood to make a weapon, then mark your way as you discover the island. Should you encounter danger, you are to return right away." "Arath, once we scouted our surroundings, you will be our huntress. You are responsible for bringing meat to the table, to make sure that we stay healthy and strong. Hal will accompany you to help you in catching your prey. However, do not make any risky moves. If you encounter prey that you do not know if you can bring down, then return and bring me with yourself. And do not begin hunting just yet." "Julia, though I loathe myself for asking you this, I want you to talk to the nature here so you find out what this island has to offer. I want you to keep trying as hard as you can, but please do not overexert yourself. Once you have found out everything you can, please tell me what you know." "Fantine, I know that your powers hurt you, but you will play the most crucial role in the coming weeks. You will be the one who has to stand by the fire at night to make sure that it is burning and it keeps wild life away. If you find your focus waning, then wake me up even in the middle of the night. I will help you get through it and make sure that no one disturbs your sleep. Anyone who does so will be dealt with swiftly." "All the others will stay with me to help with the initial preparation, but for now... My people, you have earned the right to take a break. Do not forget the roles that you have been assigned, because life will start sooner than you think." With his long speech finished, the Nameless King looked at his people, specifically, he was curious as to what was in their eyes. He hoped that they would have fatigue, but also hope for a new beginning.
