Witches... Since the beginning of time, Witches have been a source of controversy, symbols of darkness and destruction. The legend goes that they signed a deal with the devil, bound to serve him for life. However, the legend is only half true. They do serve for life, but for a different purpose. They serve demons, helping them collect souls and reach into the ranks of the hellish army. In short, they help power those who will eventually destroy the humans, reaching towards the apocalypse. However, being a witch isn't easy. Before, it took years of training and finding a compatible demon to bind with. Nowadays, there is Keygate Academy for Dark Arts and Demonics. Here, Demons and Witches/Warlocks come to find their destined partner and learn to work together to help bring the underworld over, looking to join the ranks of the Ultimate Lord's army. Some of them, however, have a long way to go, especially with the Apocalypse, the Ultimate Lord's arrival, coming so quickly. But, when a half human, half demon appears, wants to destroy all that this school stands for and take down the Ultimate Lord, how far will he make it? ___ 'Hey, you.' 'Hm...?' 'Whats your name?' 'My name? ... I don't have one.' 'Hmph, useless. Then, I'll give you one. Your new name is Reina, and you are to be my witch. Now, step back while I break you out of this infernal contraption.' 'W-wait wh-' CRASH!!! 'Come along, now, we have places to be.' ___ Name: Maroon Varnice Nickname: N/A Age: 16 Gender: Male Species: Half demon, Half human Appearance: Personality: Maroon is a very blunt and candid person, skipping the sugar and going straight for what he aims for. Because of this, though, he tends to be a bit awkward when expressing somethings, and has no understanding of truly human things. He's terribly ambitious, but, his reasons are more personal than practical. He cares about those he's close to, though, and makes sure to always fulfill a promise. Power:Summoning beasts, Taking souls for power _____ Name: Reina Varnice Nickname: Rei Age:15 Gender:Female Species: Witch (Human) Appearance: Personality: Born in a lab that studied magical powers and witchcraft, Reina has spent her entire life in a safety chamber, made of glass not even she can break. She is very naive and curious, as well as easily trusting to people she meets. She tends to work on her emotions, which are unstable as she has never really been able to experience much. Powers: Ice Animal Familiar: Hedgehog, will appear later _______ "Come along, Reina, we're late," Maroon said smoothly as he stepped out of the taxi, picking up his duffle bag, He looked up at the tall gates of Keygate Academy, and smirked,"So, this is where we will spend the next couple years." He fixed his uniform tie just as Reina came around the cab, fixing her hair under the uniform hooded cloak. She looked up to where he was, and gasped. "Wow, its so pretty! Are we really going to live here?," the witch asked, turning to Maroon. He smiled, not even looking her way. "Of course. I promised you a new home after I broke you out. How, lets go see what we're going to have to deal with," The both headed up to the gate, and pressed the button that was on the side. 'How may I help you?! A cheerful voice said, before a shining grin appeared in mid-air. From the grin, the rest of a female body appeared, dressed in royal and light purple stripes, long black hair cascading down her back and light blue eyes shining. Reina took a step back as the witch appeared, amazed at the skill she had shown. "We're here for the entrance ceremony. We should be on the list, as the names Maroon and Reina Varnice." "Ah, you're finally here~! I am your mentor, Ms. Shire! Follow me!," The older witch said, before pressing her hand to the gate. A large seal with intricate designs appeared, before the doors dropped and the two were lead in. The facilities were old looking, bordering on a pure white castle, but they were well kept, with many flowers and statues around. Reina looked around curiously, straying here and there as the other two walked straight for the auditorium. However, as she strayed far, she heard a soft voice singing, an slowly moved towards it. Her foot caught onto a sightly crooked stone, and she fell forward, giving a strangled squeak as she landed on a solid form.
