Deep underground, sealed away from the world, lay a dark crypt. This crypt was one of long ago yet to be explored by people of the current day an age. Inside was many artifacts tucked away from a time long past. Who had collected them was a mystery. What for, was just as big a mystery. The only thing that was for sure was that there was indeed quite an expensive collection of artifacts. Things ranging from old weaponry to even older coins. Amongst them lay the decorated corpses of the family whose crypt this belonged to. Some corpses lay in suits of armor or chain mail adorned with the family crest. Others in more modern clothes such as a suit or dress. This crypt had been tucked away... passing by this whole time unnoticed at least until a light earthquake split the ground above the crypt exposing it to the outside world up above. For a time it remained unnoticed until a group of explorers happened upon it and down into the crypt they ventured. For days they dug up the crypt and drug out its riches. Dividing it amongst themselves they set out to spend it. One of these adventurers had traveled to Medius to pawn his findings. Amongst his share was a hand and a half longsword. It looked magnificent. The hilt was made of white gold with a purple gem affixed to the pommel. Across the cross guard a purple wing was etched. The blade was white as snow and bore black runes down the blade. It was deadly sharp and had no sheathe so he wrapped it in cloth and had to be careful so it wouldn't cut through. It was his prize and he decided he would keep it for his personal weapon. A month or so later he had pawned all of his share save a few minor things and was fast dwindling away his riches on booze. He bragged about his findings and his adventures but he never mentioned a word about the sword. The was his secret and he didnt want anyone else to know lest they try and steal it. One night sitting alone in his hut, drunk, he was pondering where all his money went and feeling sorry for himself. Then he got the urge to pull out the sword. Maybe its time I sold it he thought to himself. He dug it out from under the loose floorboard that was hidden under his bed and and unwrapped it. Taking it in his hand he swung it through the air cutting an imaginary man in two. Oh how he loved this sword. There was no way he could part with it. It was just too well crafted. He looked around his room and eyed his bed post for a second. He began to wonder just how sharp it was. He had never tested it before. Why not now he thought. he approached his bed and drew he sword overhead. He hestitated for a moment and then brought it down diagonally across attempting to cleave off the bed post. As the blade his the wood is sunk halfway into the post before it caught a nail and stopped in its tracks. The jolt of the strike reverberated down the blade and up the hilt. He cursed at having struck a nail and pulled the blade free from the post. He plopped down on his bed and looked the blade once over for dings hoping the nail had not harmed the blade. Having found no marks he set it down next to him on the bed. Feeling satisfied and tired he let the alcohol take him and he fell asleep. In his sleep he rolled and knocked the sword from the bed. As the blade hit the floor it bounced and hummed much like a tuning fork. Meanwhile, at the same time that the sword struck the nail, somewhere in a world of nothingness a collection of thoughts felt this tug. The tug seemed to kickstart it and got the thoughts whirring again. The mass of thoughts was drawn to this tug as a creature drawn to a noise. It was lost though only having an idea of where the tug came from. Then as the sword hit the floor and massive pull could be felt by the collection of thoughts and it let itself be drawn in by it. The swords humming stopped and it laid there cold and lifeless. A minute passed by and then another. Then the sword glowed for a second and turned to energy. The mass of energy then changed shape and took form and the glow left. Where the sword had laid was now a male. He appeared only of 19 years old. He had white hair, purple eyes, and was of a slim build. The boy laid there still and lifeless for a few more second before sitting up with a gasp. Confused he glanced around the room. "Where the hell am I?" He thought to himself. His memories were all jumbled and he couldnt remember what exactly he had been doing last. One thing he did know was he needed to get out of there before this man woke up with him in his house and the sword missing. So quietly he stole himself a loose fitting button up white shirt and what resembled blue jeans. In his escapades through the house he noticed a targe with a family crest that seemed familiar to him so he grabbed that as well and let himself out a window. On the streets outside he slung the targe over his shoulder and headed towards the nearest noises he could hear in the distance hoping it was more people. He had questions. "Thankfully he was drunk" he said out loud to himself as he stepped his first couple steps away from the mans house.

As he approached the distant noise he could make out voices and knew right away that it must be people. Vix stopped by a window to check his appearance. A quick study of himself followed by a few seconds of messing with his hair to get it to all lay flat and he was on his way again. "Wonder how this will go?" He asked himself as he walked up on the loudest portion of the noise. As he turned the corner he came face to face with a rundown apartment complex but all of its people were outside in front of it. It appeared the were argueing about something. Vix's curiosity kicked in and he wandered forward. "What's this?" he asked allowed as he walked up behind the closest people. An older man with patchy hair turned around. He had a faint smell that wasnt very pleasant and when he opened his mouth to talk he was missing teeth and the others were half black. His breath smelled even worse. Vix even taste the alcohol on his breath. "Sum bud got hermself keeled out her ona da sidewalk in front our place" Vix had seen death quite a few times before and really didnt care to see it again any time soon. He had other plans and places to be. "This is going to seem odd but where is here exactly? Is this in Sai city?" The hobo shot him a puzzled look. "Ya kay bud? Hit Yer head boy? Aint Neva herd a no sai city. Dis her be Medius." Vix allowed himself a silly grin and thought to himself "Great a hobo is talking down to me." "Medius, Hmm... You dont say. So where on a map in yochi would you find Medius i guess would be a better question." Vix glanced around observing his suroundings much like he had on his way there. So much of it reminded him of a post apocalyptic sai city it was unreal. "Yochi!? Ya sir ya kay? Ye be makin names up. I aint sir wut ye axin no moar" "Ah no sir I assure you I'm fine." Vix scratched the back of his head thinking hard about what he was doing before the blank spot and couldnt for the life of him remember. 'Well sir thanks for your help. I have but one question left. Perhaps the one I should have asked first. How about the location of a map?" The hobo gave him a mostly toothless smile and shook his head. "Sary bud..." "I see. Then I bid you a good day er, well Night and hopefully I can find what Im looking for elsewhere." Vix dipped his head to the man and turn around and walked back around the corner from which he came. "Alright so I cant remember anything before the blank. I came to in a weapon form which means I was with someone but the fact I can hold the form until i chose to let it go means that I could have been separated from said person forever ago. Gosh this sucks. Alright! Game plan... Find a map figure out where or when this is. Need to know how long I was out." Vix glanced around him unsure which way to go to find a map. "If I were a map..." He turned in each direction."which way would I be?" He decided that deeper into the city looked best and set off deeper into the city. "This way I guess"

Vix Walked until morning and passed by many places bustling with people. Some looked questionable and others looked inviting but he figured none of them would have a map so he didn't bother stopping. "Maybe if I could find a library... Ehh I just don't know. The people I have talked to seem off like they hardly understand me and think I say funny things. Everyone seems like they're relearning how to do everything its almost like they cant remember anything before the blank... Doesn't help me because I cant remember anything after... I wonder how big of a gap the blank is though. I wonder if anyone even knows what a library is... or let alone if theres one still intact.." Vix's rambling was cut short by his growling stomach. "Greattt... now I'm hungry" He had passed only one tavern since he started walking and that was a bit ago and had no intentions of turning back. "Hopefully theres another one this way." His stomach growled again. "I could really go for some eggs" He altered his course slightly when he noticed an old paved street with several lanes for traffic. "Ohh a main road this should take me somewhere... a half destroyed library perhaps..." His stomach growled again and he let out a small sigh "Yes I know you're hungry. I'll do something about it when I can. Till then shut up!" Vix began his way down the paved road. Every so many feet he would have to walk around or climb over some rubble and it was slowing him down. "Okay this is going to get old fast..." Only a few hours had gone by when a couple of men going through some rubble took notice of him "Where are you headed? Not into the core district I hope. Baaad place to be at night. You believe in ghost stories?" Vix looked over "Heh you dont say... Well then where would you have me go instead?" The man gave him a smirk and gave his friends a weird look "I dont know what you objective is so I wouldnt have a clue where to send you.." Vix thought for a second to himself before replying "Well I wanted a map... But now i just want the direction of the biggest non-destroyed city close to here" After a few minutes of the men discussing the answer amongst themselves the man walk over to Vix "Listen boy im not sure why you seem so lost but if thats what you're looking for then your best bet would be the coastal city and if its a map you want Im sure you can get one there. Its to the east from here. Do as you please but I don't recommend the core district at night." The Man turned and walked back to what he was doing. "Thank you!!" Vix let out another sigh "More walking.... well its morning so the sun would be east." Vix adjusted his course towards the sun and set out for this coastal city.
