"By all means. I'd love to see what you can do. I mean, studies and theories are all well and good, but to see actual magic would just be... beyond belief."
She eagerly unstraps the device and hands it to you. "If you can get it working, that'd be great. If it needs to be powered by magic... well, I'll sell it to you cheap. If you can't, it's not a big deal. Busywork, more than anything."
I'm perfectly fine with you spending as much time visiting with Dotty as you want (it's fun), but fair warning: it may start to cost you time if the other players progress while you remain here.

Honestly i was trying to get access to the technomancy path but this is better. i'll probably get going by the time the first hours ticks over. also i'm only mostly sure that's the right wind magic image
Irathia takes the device as Dotty hands it to her, happy for the redness of her skin as she feels a warmth rush to them. "Aright , calm down, sure she's smart and cute in her own way but you can't go getting all flustered and nervous....just help her out" Irathia thinks , trying to calm herself.

Closing her eyes Irathia begins focusing of channeling the wind mana around her channeling it into herself while at the same time searching for any hint of the same in the device. As the mana builds within her a small cyclone begins to grow at her feet. From the device she feels something faint, a strange but familiar feeling presence, Focusing on that she does her best to channel the wind mana into the device, hoping for some sort of reaction from the device.

The lights on the device begin to glow brightly as you channel your mana, reaching a level of luminosity far greater than they had from the battery pack alone. The disc appears under your feet, and the whirlwind begins to raise it off the ground.
"Well damn, that worked a hell of a lot better than I expected it to," Dolly laughed as she dropped to the floor to measure your altitude. "So the battery pack can be augmented with magical energy... fascinating. This... this opens up so many possibilities. New inventory... new devices... new Sphere models..."
She leapt back to her feet, and pent over to examine the ethereal disk and the various other effects generated by the contraption. "So, using magic... what does it feel like? My spark feels like... well, like a warmth that springs up in my lungs when I envision it. It spreads out my arm and jumps from my fingertip. Is, well, is your magic similar? Does it feel different being used for the device instead of... I mean, whatever you'd normally use it for? What DO you use it for?"
She seems overburdened with curiosity, and eager to know more about magic and its applications. She seems to have lost focus in her device as her attention is drawn to the method of its empowerment.

Edit- added irathia's description of using wind magic

As she feels herself rise irathia opens her eyes, smiling as Dotty laughs over her success. She could almost imagine the thoughts in dotty's mind as tiny gears that came together to form a greater machine. But at dotty's question on how magic feel she blanked for a moment. " how does magic feel? Well, i was born with magical talent so at first, it felt like this special spark within me that kept me warm....made me feel safe and comfortable..." she begins, closing her eyes describing each type of mana she's familiar with as she lets it flow through her for a moment.
" but ever since I came to be in this world, the one most of the adventures with me are from it all feels different. Raw magic feels like a river washing over you, sometimes it's refreshing. And sometimes it's so forceful it feels like it might carry you away. Wind magic feels like...holding your breath and then exhaling along with the world around you. Earth magic feels...firm and strong. Like you could hold up the world or make it crumble away. Water feel like a deep pressure waiting to surge forth and take shape. And fire..." irathia chuckles, the device deactivating and lowering to the floor as she begins channeling fire mana, tiny flames dancing bout her body as she smiles. " I've always had a thing for fire magic... To me it's like being filled with that feeling you get from a lover's passionate touch...like the sheer intensity of what I feel can set the world ablaze."
Basking in the feel of stoking her inner flame for a moment irathia just breathes as she slowly releases her grip on the flow of magic. But before she completely let go she gets a rush of something darker. She shudders at the sudden reminder of the other magics she's familiar with. " and then there's...the darker magic within me. It feels just as familiar as the fire but feels like pure temptation and cruelty... I haven't really used that type of magic at all."

Irathia shakes off the feeling of the demonic magic within her, refocusing on dotty's questions. " I mostly use magic for self-defense and utility. I recently got better with illusions so if I ever get back into entertaining I'd use that to spice up my shows. I've also made things and summoned creatures... Did I miss anything?"

Dotty listens intently, her chin resting in her hands. Occasionally she reaches out to tentatively touch the flames or swirling vortex of wind around you. "That's... I mean, obviously that's incredible. I --we-- don't have any way of understanding Digigotchi, but I've always wondered what it felt like to have that kind of power. It's the reason I got into this, all of this dabbling and inventing and studying... Because I wanted to be something greater than what I was born as. I wanted to fly, to light up the sky, to dazzle my friends with powers too uncanny to ever be forgotten. I was raised on tales of wizards and dragons... and now, to be able to meet some of them, to get to know them, to... befriend them," she pauses, her smile almost unnaturally large and excited, "... it's really been a dream come true."
She again conjures a small golden spark on her fingertip. "My technomancy is crude, using exploited Evo Codes to manipulate the world. I don't want to CHANGE the world, I want to ADD something to it. To create power where there was none, to give life to those who would lose it... to really leave a mark on the world when I'm gone."
She spun around in her chair, which you now noticed rotated over a wheeled base.
"The darker magic you spoke of... familiar, temptation, cruelty... You say you were born with magical powers; I assume you didn't choose to have the darkness? Can it be quelled? Or will it always remain within you?"

Irathia sighs, finding something to sit on as she gives dotty a weak smile. " well I'm sure you can tell by looking at me but I'm not exactly human. I'm a teifling, Forever scared by some long-gone race of humans that turned to demons and dark gods to satisfy a thirst for power, leaving their descendants forever marked now matter how they might try to breed out the curse. Maybe that's why I'm so glad I prefer girls." Irathia sighs shaking her head, as she laughs. "you know what you said right now reminds me of myself. I grew up with people resenting me before they got to knew me, all because I had red skin, scales horns, and a tail. I never made friends who weren't teiflings as a kid, not for lack of trying but because any kid willing to give me a chance got pulled away by their parents who usually ran off soon after. But I alway hated my horns more than my scales. As my parents told me my scales meant the blood of a dragon ran strong in my veins. the story goes a great great grandmother managed to bed a gold dragon, part of me still wants to know how. But it gave me hope, hope that I could be more than the teifling people feared and hated when they saw her on the streets. I think it's why I loved reading stories so much. In a book even someone who was less than nothing could rise up and be a hero."

Irathia paused for a moment, seemingly reflecting on something. "I'm sorry dotty I'm getting bogged down in my own slightly tragic backstory. The short version is things did get better for me I have friends, all of them great and some of them powerful. Maybe I should introduce you to bayorth. she shouldn't be too far off. Anyway, when I came to the world the rest of these adventures are from things changed. The spark within me I'd always known was tied to my magical abilities seemed off, distant even, but at the same time my magic was so much more versatile though it's only in certain situations that I fully control what I do, so instead of going home I decided to treat it as a new adventure and see what I could see, no matter what happened. A while back we took part in a festival, and there was a shaman Offering tattoos that con grant blessing of power based upon your ancestry. I'd never turn down a chance to get closer to my dragon ancestry so I got one. whether it was good or bad I don't know but the first tattoo that came to him drew fro my demonic ancestry. It gave me back the ability to see in the dark that I lost when I changed worlds, which I was happy for, but it also woke up a dark magic in me one that just feels like it wants to cause pain...If I ever have to I'll use it but I don't like the feel of it. So no it's not exactly something that needs to be quelled, I'd actually forgotten about it for a while. And even though I may not want it I can't quite say that I'd want to be rid of the power either. Every so often when I think about it, it's like I'm cutting myself in half, like only the dragon with me is worth nurturing because it'll save me from some fate I'm running from while the demon in me will only drag me closer to it. But I know that if I really want any true lasting happiness in life I'll have to embrace both someday."

Dotty is quiet --perfectly quiet-- as she listens to your story. She seems saddened by the tale, as you'd expect, but there's something else in her eyes. Something like... sympathy, but more than just pity for your tragic history; there was a fire, like defiance... an outrage at the way you'd been treated.
"Strange, that though our worlds may seem so different, they may in fact be so similar. My world has more than its share of dreamers and inventors, but the idea that I could modify myself as others do their Digigotchi was... not a popular one. Perhaps if I'd had a mentor or someone with a similar inclination, I wouldn't have been such an outcast. It took many years before I was able to understand the fabric of our world enough to weave it into myself, and when I joyfully shared the discovery with my peers they shunned me like some kind of deviant... as though I'd cut off my own hand, or perhaps stitched another's organs into my abdomen. A few refused to believe that it was science, claiming instead that I had committed some vile or profane act in exchange for even this little bit of power. I know it probably doesn't compare to the suffering you've endured; I mean, I can pass as a normal person if I don't use my power, whereas you've ALWAYS had horns and scales..."
She kinda trails off, and you hear the faintest sound of a sniffle before she continues.
"You said you know illusion magic, right? Have you ever considered hiding your appearance in that way? Have... Would you show me, if you don't mind, how you would want to appear? Without, I guess, your horns and tail... without the things you don't like about yourself? I'd like to see what you wish you looked like."

#157 - darkoblivion (09/16/2016) [-]
Irathia shakes her head, " I don't want to change how I look. I tried that early in my career as an entertainer. The leader of my group had an experienced wizard friend that gave me scrolls with a spell that would change my appearance. I went out and used one and managed to start up a little physical relationship with a girl in the town. Every day I'd use a scroll and see her. then one day the spell ran out after we slept together. She couldn't have been more frightened when she woke up, thought I'd come to whisk her away to some dark place. I may not like that I was fated to be seen as a demon girl for most of my life the moment I was conceived but I'll be damned if I let that make me hate what I see in the mirror." Irathia said her face a mixture of anger sadness and determination. "Besides I like my tail...It's useful in bed." She managed to chuckle at that little addition.

Irathia's mood continues to brighten as she laughs, "You know dotty if you change yourself enough you might end up the mother of your own little race of techno-teiflings. That could be fun. maybe I could be their godmother. You shouldn't try and compare our suffering by the way. Feeling bad isn't a competition. Hell, I'm an entertainer at heart, I should be doing my best to cheer you up." Irathia asks pausing for a moment.

"Dotty I'm not going to lie , you're probably the smartest girl I've met in a long time. Smarter than I can imagine probably, and I like that a lot about you. So before I do anything stupid or get my hopes up too high I need to know. Am I barking up the wrong tree?" Irathia asked, sounding nervous.

Dotty looked down and away, her face unsure but flushed. "I don't... I mean, I've never..." she looks at you with a sense of sadness and uncertainty before looking away. She picked up a small tool, placing its point against the desk and spinning the handle with her hand. She seems to be thinking about something intently, and you notice a quick glance at your tail before she clears her throat and sits up a little straighter. "I'm not... against the idea..." she briefly bites her lip before turning her attention back to the screwdriver she's fiddling with.
Her head bobs back and forth for a short time, like one who is pondering things, before she slowly comes to a halt and stops moving. "It's not really a good time for... things... you know? I've never been with a woman, and certainly not anyone as exotic as you. I, well, I think maybe if we had more time, I'd like to get to know you better. I really would. But in less than a day, my world will be destroyed. The idea of spending my last hours with you sounds enticing, granted, but I'm not ready to die yet."
She pauses and takes a breath, batting back tears with a flutter of her eyelids. "I'm sorry. You've really been very pleasant company, and I hope I get to see you again before everything... you know, goes to shit. But I think the best thing you can do for me is to go out there and save the world."
She looks at you with mixed emotions, plastered over with a thick layer of faked courage. Concern, fear, and friendship are evident underneath, but you can see something deeper... a sense of uncertainty and hesitation.

"No no no, gods no." Irathia stands, smiling as she looks dotty in the eye. "I wouldn't dare push this on you like that. I want someone to love that'll love me back for who I am, not just a quick fling. If that means I have to beat the clock to save your world... well, I was going to do that anyway. And if there's Any chance at all that I might get you out of all this then I'll take on all the corruption in your world with my bare hands.And don't think that when, and I do mean when and not if, We beat the source of this corruption that you even have to to do anything for me."

Turning on her heels Irathia moves to leave the hack shack leaving the floating device on a table. She stops in the doorway, and looks back at dotty with a sad but determined smile, " I hope you don't worry about me while I'm gone now, I saved a nation once. I wasn't alone then and I'm not alone now. And Now I have someone to fight for. I can't lose now."

Dotty smiles pleasantly as you dismiss her fears. She doesn't say anything, but you can tell she's thankful that you didn't press the issue. As you move to leave, she runs forward and hands the flying boot to you.
"Take this. I don't know how much it will help, but I can't use it anyway. And..." she looks away, uncharacteristically shy, "if it hastens your quest, that's even better, right?"
There's a momentary touch as she hands you the boot, and then she turns and distracts herself with her devices.
"I have faith in you, Irathia," she calls from her workshop, "Stop in if you have the time."

"Well... there is ONE thing that's been giving me some trouble... Here, come on back and I'll show you." Dotty led the way into her workshop, where dozens of metallic and electronic devices hang or are mounted on the walls. She pulled one from a bench and began strapping it to the bottom of her sandal.
"It's supposed to grant flight, or at least some manner of controlled hover, using a projected hard-light surface to emulate a weightless surfboard. The board SHOULD be suspended in midair once activated, using a system of electrical relays around a pair of Wind code modules. I've seen those codes give even rock-type Digis the ability to fly, but I can't figure out how to power the board. The battery charge doesn't seem to kick the code modules into gear... watch."
She used the toe of her other shoe to kick a button on the back of the device, which immediately caused a flickering oval of energy to radiate out beneath her feet. Lights on the side of the device began to glow tentatively, before flickering and sputtering out. There was a visible display of energy, however, that managed to raise Dotty about 4 centimeters off the ground before she lost power.
"See? Not enough power to the Wind modules. I've run the calculations, and the battery pack should be outputting 43% more watts than necessary. Hell, I spliced it into the building's electicity yesterday, just to make sure power output wasn't the problem. I just don't know what it'll take to get this damn boot off the ground."

Irathia followed dotty, staring at all the devices in a combination of confusion and curiosity. When dotty straps the device to her feet and turns it on irathia is almost as surprised as she was impressed. These devices didn't seem to work like anything she was familiar with, if it was magic it had to be the technomancy dotty mentioned but she wasn't even sure it was that. "Honestly I'm not sure what to say, Give me monster dragon and magic and it's an average day. but this all seems like something ou of a story I've never read before." Irathia said crossing her arms as she thought, "You say there are wind evo codes in that thing, right. I have a little skill with wind magic, maybe it'll react to that. I can conjure up wings too but that seems less likely to help. Other than that I'm not sure how I could help."

The lights on the device begin to glow brightly as you channel your mana, reaching a level of luminosity far greater than they had from the battery pack alone. The disc appears under your feet, and the whirlwind begins to raise it off the ground.
"Well damn, that worked a hell of a lot better than I expected it to," Dolly laughed as she dropped to the floor to measure your altitude.

Perhaps if I'd had a mentor or someone with a similar inclination, I wouldn't have been such an outcast. It took many years before I was able to understand the fabric of our world enough to weave it into myself, and when I joyfully shared the discovery with my peers they shunned me like some kind of deviant... as though I'd cut off my own hand, or perhaps stitched another's organs into my abdomen. A few refused to believe that it was science, claiming instead that I had committed some vile or profane act in exchange for even this little bit of power. I know it probably doesn't compare to the suffering you've endured; I mean, I can pass as a normal person if I don't use my power, whereas you've ALWAYS had horns and scales..."
She kinda trails off, and you hear the faintest sound of a sniffle before she continues.
"You said you know illusion magic, right? Have you ever considered hiding your appearance in that way? Have... Would you show me, if you don't mind, how you would want to appear? Without, I guess, your horns and tail... without the things you don't like about yourself? I'd like to see what you wish you looked like."

Irathia shakes her head, " I don't want to change how I look. I tried that early in my career as an entertainer. The leader of my group had an experienced wizard friend that gave me scrolls with a spell that would change my appearance. I went out and used one and managed to start up a little physical relationship with a girl in the town. Every day I'd use a scroll and see her. then one day the spell ran out after we slept together. She couldn't have been more frightened when she woke up, thought I'd come to whisk her away to some dark place. I may not like that I was fated to be seen as a demon girl for most of my life the moment I was conceived but I'll be damned if I let that make me hate what I see in the mirror." Irathia said her face a mixture of anger sadness and determination. "Besides I like my tail...It's useful in bed." She managed to chuckle at that little addition.

Irathia's mood continues to brighten as she laughs, "You know dotty if you change yourself enough you might end up the mother of your own little race of techno-teiflings. That could be fun. maybe I could be their godmother. You shouldn't try and compare our suffering by the way. Feeling bad isn't a competition. Hell, I'm an entertainer at heart, I should be doing my best to cheer you up." Irathia asks pausing for a moment.

"Dotty I'm not going to lie , you're probably the smartest girl I've met in a long time. Smarter than I can imagine probably, and I like that a lot about you. So before I do anything stupid or get my hopes up too high I need to know. Am I barking up the wrong tree?" Irathia asked, sounding nervous.

Dotty looked down and away, her face unsure but flushed. "I don't... I mean, I've never..." she looks at you with a sense of sadness and uncertainty before looking away. She picked up a small tool, placing its point against the desk and spinning the handle with her hand. She seems to be thinking about something intently, and you notice a quick glance at your tail before she clears her throat and sits up a little straighter. "I'm not... against the idea..." she briefly bites her lip before turning her attention back to the screwdriver she's fiddling with.
Her head bobs back and forth for a short time, like one who is pondering things, before she slowly comes to a halt and stops moving. "It's not really a good time for... things... you know? I've never been with a woman, and certainly not anyone as exotic as you. I, well, I think maybe if we had more time, I'd like to get to know you better. I really would. But in less than a day, my world will be destroyed. The idea of spending my last hours with you sounds enticing, granted, but I'm not ready to die yet."
She pauses and takes a breath, batting back tears with a flutter of her eyelids. "I'm sorry. You've really been very pleasant company, and I hope I get to see you again before everything... you know, goes to shit. But I think the best thing you can do for me is to go out there and save the world."
She looks at you with mixed emotions, plastered over with a thick layer of faked courage. Concern, fear, and friendship are evident underneath, but you can see something deeper... a sense of uncertainty and hesitation.

"No no no, gods no." Irathia stands, smiling as she looks dotty in the eye. "I wouldn't dare push this on you like that. I want someone to love that'll love me back for who I am, not just a quick fling. If that means I have to beat the clock to save your world... well, I was going to do that anyway. And if there's Any chance at all that I might get you out of all this then I'll take on all the corruption in your world with my bare hands.And don't think that when, and I do mean when and not if, We beat the source of this corruption that you even have to to do anything for me."

Turning on her heels Irathia moves to leave the hack shack leaving the floating device on a table. She stops in the doorway, and looks back at dotty with a sad but determined smile, " I hope you don't worry about me while I'm gone now, I saved a nation once. I wasn't alone then and I'm not alone now. And Now I have someone to fight for. I can't lose now."

Dotty smiles pleasantly as you dismiss her fears. She doesn't say anything, but you can tell she's thankful that you didn't press the issue. As you move to leave, she runs forward and hands the flying boot to you.
"Take this. I don't know how much it will help, but I can't use it anyway. And..." she looks away, uncharacteristically shy, "if it hastens your quest, that's even better, right?"
There's a momentary touch as she hands you the boot, and then she turns and distracts herself with her devices.
"I have faith in you, Irathia," she calls from her workshop, "Stop in if you have the time."

"Oh, well, I don't really know any myself, except I guess a bit of what I like to call 'Technomancy'. Ever since the Viral Glitch began corrupting our world, and D-Bug came to me with plans on undoing the damage, I've been studying lots of theories... alternate dimensions, realities, and timelines... metaphysics, astrology, even some conspiracy theories. D-Bug has enlightened me to some rules and forces that my peers don't understand, and I've been studying interactions between them and the aspects of my world. Long story short, I think I can use Evo Codes --which are basically forced evolutionary mutations-- to illicit similar effects in other races, not just Digigotchi. I used an 'Electricity' Code on myself, and the effect is quite fascinating."
She held out a finger, from which a small smark began to flicker, before leaping off and fizzling out on the way down.
"And, to a lesser extent, I believe I can create items which use similar principles to create metaphysical effects. Basically, I can make items and powers out of Evo Codes, though I have to warn you... the process isn't cheap."

Irathia listened intently, though dotty used many terms she wasn't familiar with. The general idra seemed simple enough even if there was a chsnce she'd never understand it all, ehe really needed to start reading again. " do you have anything you're working on now? I'm curious yo see how this works?" irathia asked, her tail twitching. Excitedly.

"Well... there is ONE thing that's been giving me some trouble... Here, come on back and I'll show you." Dotty led the way into her workshop, where dozens of metallic and electronic devices hang or are mounted on the walls. She pulled one from a bench and began strapping it to the bottom of her sandal.
"It's supposed to grant flight, or at least some manner of controlled hover, using a projected hard-light surface to emulate a weightless surfboard. The board SHOULD be suspended in midair once activated, using a system of electrical relays around a pair of Wind code modules. I've seen those codes give even rock-type Digis the ability to fly, but I can't figure out how to power the board. The battery charge doesn't seem to kick the code modules into gear... watch."
She used the toe of her other shoe to kick a button on the back of the device, which immediately caused a flickering oval of energy to radiate out beneath her feet. Lights on the side of the device began to glow tentatively, before flickering and sputtering out. There was a visible display of energy, however, that managed to raise Dotty about 4 centimeters off the ground before she lost power.
"See? Not enough power to the Wind modules. I've run the calculations, and the battery pack should be outputting 43% more watts than necessary. Hell, I spliced it into the building's electicity yesterday, just to make sure power output wasn't the problem. I just don't know what it'll take to get this damn boot off the ground."

Irathia followed dotty, staring at all the devices in a combination of confusion and curiosity. When dotty straps the device to her feet and turns it on irathia is almost as surprised as she was impressed. These devices didn't seem to work like anything she was familiar with, if it was magic it had to be the technomancy dotty mentioned but she wasn't even sure it was that. "Honestly I'm not sure what to say, Give me monster dragon and magic and it's an average day. but this all seems like something ou of a story I've never read before." Irathia said crossing her arms as she thought, "You say there are wind evo codes in that thing, right. I have a little skill with wind magic, maybe it'll react to that. I can conjure up wings too but that seems less likely to help. Other than that I'm not sure how I could help."

#116 - tyrson (09/14/2016) [-]
"By all means. I'd love to see what you can do. I mean, studies and theories are all well and good, but to see actual magic would just be... beyond belief."
She eagerly unstraps the device and hands it to you. "If you can get it working, that'd be great. If it needs to be powered by magic... well, I'll sell it to you cheap. If you can't, it's not a big deal. Busywork, more than anything."
I'm perfectly fine with you spending as much time visiting with Dotty as you want (it's fun), but fair warning: it may start to cost you time if the other players progress while you remain here.
#117 - darkoblivion (09/14/2016) [-]
Honestly i was trying to get access to the technomancy path but this is better. i'll probably get going by the time the first hours ticks over. also i'm only mostly sure that's the right wind magic image
Irathia takes the device as Dotty hands it to her, happy for the redness of her skin as she feels a warmth rush to them. "Aright , calm down, sure she's smart and cute in her own way but you can't go getting all flustered and nervous....just help her out" Irathia thinks , trying to calm herself.

Closing her eyes Irathia begins focusing of channeling the wind mana around her channeling it into herself while at the same time searching for any hint of the same in the device. As the mana builds within her a small cyclone begins to grow at her feet. From the device she feels something faint, a strange but familiar feeling presence, Focusing on that she does her best to channel the wind mana into the device, hoping for some sort of reaction from the device.

#121 - tyrson (09/14/2016) [-]
The lights on the device begin to glow brightly as you channel your mana, reaching a level of luminosity far greater than they had from the battery pack alone. The disc appears under your feet, and the whirlwind begins to raise it off the ground.
"Well damn, that worked a hell of a lot better than I expected it to," Dolly laughed as she dropped to the floor to measure your altitude. "So the battery pack can be augmented with magical energy... fascinating. This... this opens up so many possibilities. New inventory... new devices... new Sphere models..."
She leapt back to her feet, and pent over to examine the ethereal disk and the various other effects generated by the contraption. "So, using magic... what does it feel like? My spark feels like... well, like a warmth that springs up in my lungs when I envision it. It spreads out my arm and jumps from my fingertip. Is, well, is your magic similar? Does it feel different being used for the device instead of... I mean, whatever you'd normally use it for? What DO you use it for?"
She seems overburdened with curiosity, and eager to know more about magic and its applications. She seems to have lost focus in her device as her attention is drawn to the method of its empowerment.

Edit- added irathia's description of using wind magic

As she feels herself rise irathia opens her eyes, smiling as Dotty laughs over her success. She could almost imagine the thoughts in dotty's mind as tiny gears that came together to form a greater machine. But at dotty's question on how magic feel she blanked for a moment. " how does magic feel? Well, i was born with magical talent so at first, it felt like this special spark within me that kept me warm....made me feel safe and comfortable..." she begins, closing her eyes describing each type of mana she's familiar with as she lets it flow through her for a moment.
" but ever since I came to be in this world, the one most of the adventures with me are from it all feels different. Raw magic feels like a river washing over you, sometimes it's refreshing. And sometimes it's so forceful it feels like it might carry you away. Wind magic feels like...holding your breath and then exhaling along with the world around you. Earth magic feels...firm and strong. Like you could hold up the world or make it crumble away. Water feel like a deep pressure waiting to surge forth and take shape. And fire..." irathia chuckles, the device deactivating and lowering to the floor as she begins channeling fire mana, tiny flames dancing bout her body as she smiles. " I've always had a thing for fire magic... To me it's like being filled with that feeling you get from a lover's passionate touch...like the sheer intensity of what I feel can set the world ablaze."
Basking in the feel of stoking her inner flame for a moment irathia just breathes as she slowly releases her grip on the flow of magic. But before she completely let go she gets a rush of something darker. She shudders at the sudden reminder of the other magics she's familiar with. " and then there's...the darker magic within me. It feels just as familiar as the fire but feels like pure temptation and cruelty... I haven't really used that type of magic at all."

Irathia shakes off the feeling of the demonic magic within her, refocusing on dotty's questions. " I mostly use magic for self-defense and utility. I recently got better with illusions so if I ever get back into entertaining I'd use that to spice up my shows. I've also made things and summoned creatures... Did I miss anything?"

Dotty listens intently, her chin resting in her hands. Occasionally she reaches out to tentatively touch the flames or swirling vortex of wind around you. "That's... I mean, obviously that's incredible. I --we-- don't have any way of understanding Digigotchi, but I've always wondered what it felt like to have that kind of power. It's the reason I got into this, all of this dabbling and inventing and studying... Because I wanted to be something greater than what I was born as. I wanted to fly, to light up the sky, to dazzle my friends with powers too uncanny to ever be forgotten. I was raised on tales of wizards and dragons... and now, to be able to meet some of them, to get to know them, to... befriend them," she pauses, her smile almost unnaturally large and excited, "... it's really been a dream come true."
She again conjures a small golden spark on her fingertip. "My technomancy is crude, using exploited Evo Codes to manipulate the world. I don't want to CHANGE the world, I want to ADD something to it. To create power where there was none, to give life to those who would lose it... to really leave a mark on the world when I'm gone."
She spun around in her chair, which you now noticed rotated over a wheeled base.
"The darker magic you spoke of... familiar, temptation, cruelty... You say you were born with magical powers; I assume you didn't choose to have the darkness? Can it be quelled? Or will it always remain within you?"

#132 - darkoblivion (09/14/2016) [-]
Irathia sighs, finding something to sit on as she gives dotty a weak smile. " well I'm sure you can tell by looking at me but I'm not exactly human. I'm a teifling, Forever scared by some long-gone race of humans that turned to demons and dark gods to satisfy a thirst for power, leaving their descendants forever marked now matter how they might try to breed out the curse. Maybe that's why I'm so glad I prefer girls." Irathia sighs shaking her head, as she laughs. "you know what you said right now reminds me of myself. I grew up with people resenting me before they got to knew me, all because I had red skin, scales horns, and a tail. I never made friends who weren't teiflings as a kid, not for lack of trying but because any kid willing to give me a chance got pulled away by their parents who usually ran off soon after. But I alway hated my horns more than my scales. As my parents told me my scales meant the blood of a dragon ran strong in my veins. the story goes a great great grandmother managed to bed a gold dragon, part of me still wants to know how. But it gave me hope, hope that I could be more than the teifling people feared and hated when they saw her on the streets. I think it's why I loved reading stories so much. In a book even someone who was less than nothing could rise up and be a hero."

Irathia paused for a moment, seemingly reflecting on something. "I'm sorry dotty I'm getting bogged down in my own slightly tragic backstory. The short version is things did get better for me I have friends, all of them great and some of them powerful. Maybe I should introduce you to bayorth. she shouldn't be too far off. Anyway, when I came to the world the rest of these adventures are from things changed. The spark within me I'd always known was tied to my magical abilities seemed off, distant even, but at the same time my magic was so much more versatile though it's only in certain situations that I fully control what I do, so instead of going home I decided to treat it as a new adventure and see what I could see, no matter what happened. A while back we took part in a festival, and there was a shaman Offering tattoos that con grant blessing of power based upon your ancestry. I'd never turn down a chance to get closer to my dragon ancestry so I got one. whether it was good or bad I don't know but the first tattoo that came to him drew fro my demonic ancestry. It gave me back the ability to see in the dark that I lost when I changed worlds, which I was happy for, but it also woke up a dark magic in me one that just feels like it wants to cause pain...If I ever have to I'll use it but I don't like the feel of it. So no it's not exactly something that needs to be quelled, I'd actually forgotten about it for a while. And even though I may not want it I can't quite say that I'd want to be rid of the power either. Every so often when I think about it, it's like I'm cutting myself in half, like only the dragon with me is worth nurturing because it'll save me from some fate I'm running from while the demon in me will only drag me closer to it. But I know that if I really want any true lasting happiness in life I'll have to embrace both someday."

Dotty is quiet --perfectly quiet-- as she listens to your story. She seems saddened by the tale, as you'd expect, but there's something else in her eyes. Something like... sympathy, but more than just pity for your tragic history; there was a fire, like defiance... an outrage at the way you'd been treated.
"Strange, that though our worlds may seem so different, they may in fact be so similar. My world has more than its share of dreamers and inventors, but the idea that I could modify myself as others do their Digigotchi was... not a popular one. Perhaps if I'd had a mentor or someone with a similar inclination, I wouldn't have been such an outcast.

Irathia followed dotty, staring at all the devices in a combination of confusion and curiosity. When dotty straps the device to her feet and turns it on irathia is almost as surprised as she was impressed. These devices didn't seem to work like anything she was familiar with, if it was magic it had to be the technomancy dotty mentioned but she wasn't even sure it was that. "Honestly I'm not sure what to say, Give me monster dragon and magic and it's an average day. but this all seems like something ou of a story I've never read before." Irathia said crossing her arms as she thought, "You say there are wind evo codes in that thing, right. I have a little skill with wind magic, maybe it'll react to that. I can conjure up wings too but that seems less likely to help. Other than that I'm not sure how I could help."

"By all means. I'd love to see what you can do. I mean, studies and theories are all well and good, but to see actual magic would just be... beyond belief."
She eagerly unstraps the device and hands it to you. "If you can get it working, that'd be great. If it needs to be powered by magic... well, I'll sell it to you cheap. If you can't, it's not a big deal. Busywork, more than anything."
I'm perfectly fine with you spending as much time visiting with Dotty as you want (it's fun), but fair warning: it may start to cost you time if the other players progress while you remain here.

Honestly i was trying to get access to the technomancy path but this is better. i'll probably get going by the time the first hours ticks over. also i'm only mostly sure that's the right wind magic image
Irathia takes the device as Dotty hands it to her, happy for the redness of her skin as she feels a warmth rush to them. "Aright , calm down, sure she's smart and cute in her own way but you can't go getting all flustered and nervous....just help her out" Irathia thinks , trying to calm herself.

Closing her eyes Irathia begins focusing of channeling the wind mana around her channeling it into herself while at the same time searching for any hint of the same in the device. As the mana builds within her a small cyclone begins to grow at her feet. From the device she feels something faint, a strange but familiar feeling presence, Focusing on that she does her best to channel the wind mana into the device, hoping for some sort of reaction from the device.

The lights on the device begin to glow brightly as you channel your mana, reaching a level of luminosity far greater than they had from the battery pack alone. The disc appears under your feet, and the whirlwind begins to raise it off the ground.
"Well damn, that worked a hell of a lot better than I expected it to," Dolly laughed as she dropped to the floor to measure your altitude. "So the battery pack can be augmented with magical energy... fascinating. This... this opens up so many possibilities. New inventory... new devices... new Sphere models..."
She leapt back to her feet, and pent over to examine the ethereal disk and the various other effects generated by the contraption. "So, using magic... what does it feel like? My spark feels like... well, like a warmth that springs up in my lungs when I envision it. It spreads out my arm and jumps from my fingertip. Is, well, is your magic similar? Does it feel different being used for the device instead of... I mean, whatever you'd normally use it for? What DO you use it for?"
She seems overburdened with curiosity, and eager to know more about magic and its applications. She seems to have lost focus in her device as her attention is drawn to the method of its empowerment.

Edit- added irathia's description of using wind magic

As she feels herself rise irathia opens her eyes, smiling as Dotty laughs over her success. She could almost imagine the thoughts in dotty's mind as tiny gears that came together to form a greater machine. But at dotty's question on how magic feel she blanked for a moment. " how does magic feel? Well, i was born with magical talent so at first, it felt like this special spark within me that kept me warm....made me feel safe and comfortable..." she begins, closing her eyes describing each type of mana she's familiar with as she lets it flow through her for a moment.
" but ever since I came to be in this world, the one most of the adventures with me are from it all feels different. Raw magic feels like a river washing over you, sometimes it's refreshing. And sometimes it's so forceful it feels like it might carry you away. Wind magic feels like...holding your breath and then exhaling along with the world around you. Earth magic feels...firm and strong. Like you could hold up the world or make it crumble away. Water feel like a deep pressure waiting to surge forth and take shape. And fire..." irathia chuckles, the device deactivating and lowering to the floor as she begins channeling fire mana, tiny flames dancing bout her body as she smiles. " I've always had a thing for fire magic... To me it's like being filled with that feeling you get from a lover's passionate touch...like the sheer intensity of what I feel can set the world ablaze."
Basking in the feel of stoking her inner flame for a moment irathia just breathes as she slowly releases her grip on the flow of magic. But before she completely let go she gets a rush of something darker. She shudders at the sudden reminder of the other magics she's familiar with. " and then there's...the darker magic within me. It feels just as familiar as the fire but feels like pure temptation and cruelty... I haven't really used that type of magic at all."

Irathia shakes off the feeling of the demonic magic within her, refocusing on dotty's questions. " I mostly use magic for self-defense and utility. I recently got better with illusions so if I ever get back into entertaining I'd use that to spice up my shows. I've also made things and summoned creatures... Did I miss anything?"

Dotty listens intently, her chin resting in her hands. Occasionally she reaches out to tentatively touch the flames or swirling vortex of wind around you. "That's... I mean, obviously that's incredible. I --we-- don't have any way of understanding Digigotchi, but I've always wondered what it felt like to have that kind of power. It's the reason I got into this, all of this dabbling and inventing and studying... Because I wanted to be something greater than what I was born as. I wanted to fly, to light up the sky, to dazzle my friends with powers too uncanny to ever be forgotten. I was raised on tales of wizards and dragons... and now, to be able to meet some of them, to get to know them, to... befriend them," she pauses, her smile almost unnaturally large and excited, "... it's really been a dream come true."
She again conjures a small golden spark on her fingertip. "My technomancy is crude, using exploited Evo Codes to manipulate the world. I don't want to CHANGE the world, I want to ADD something to it. To create power where there was none, to give life to those who would lose it... to really leave a mark on the world when I'm gone."
She spun around in her chair, which you now noticed rotated over a wheeled base.
"The darker magic you spoke of... familiar, temptation, cruelty... You say you were born with magical powers; I assume you didn't choose to have the darkness? Can it be quelled? Or will it always remain within you?"

Irathia sighs, finding something to sit on as she gives dotty a weak smile. " well I'm sure you can tell by looking at me but I'm not exactly human. I'm a teifling, Forever scared by some long-gone race of humans that turned to demons and dark gods to satisfy a thirst for power, leaving their descendants forever marked now matter how they might try to breed out the curse. Maybe that's why I'm so glad I prefer girls." Irathia sighs shaking her head, as she laughs. "you know what you said right now reminds me of myself. I grew up with people resenting me before they got to knew me, all because I had red skin, scales horns, and a tail. I never made friends who weren't teiflings as a kid, not for lack of trying but because any kid willing to give me a chance got pulled away by their parents who usually ran off soon after. But I alway hated my horns more than my scales. As my parents told me my scales meant the blood of a dragon ran strong in my veins. the story goes a great great grandmother managed to bed a gold dragon, part of me still wants to know how. But it gave me hope, hope that I could be more than the teifling people feared and hated when they saw her on the streets. I think it's why I loved reading stories so much. In a book even someone who was less than nothing could rise up and be a hero."

Irathia paused for a moment, seemingly reflecting on something. "I'm sorry dotty I'm getting bogged down in my own slightly tragic backstory. The short version is things did get better for me I have friends, all of them great and some of them powerful. Maybe I should introduce you to bayorth. she shouldn't be too far off. Anyway, when I came to the world the rest of these adventures are from things changed. The spark within me I'd always known was tied to my magical abilities seemed off, distant even, but at the same time my magic was so much more versatile though it's only in certain situations that I fully control what I do, so instead of going home I decided to treat it as a new adventure and see what I could see, no matter what happened. A while back we took part in a festival, and there was a shaman Offering tattoos that con grant blessing of power based upon your ancestry. I'd never turn down a chance to get closer to my dragon ancestry so I got one. whether it was good or bad I don't know but the first tattoo that came to him drew fro my demonic ancestry. It gave me back the ability to see in the dark that I lost when I changed worlds, which I was happy for, but it also woke up a dark magic in me one that just feels like it wants to cause pain...If I ever have to I'll use it but I don't like the feel of it. So no it's not exactly something that needs to be quelled, I'd actually forgotten about it for a while. And even though I may not want it I can't quite say that I'd want to be rid of the power either. Every so often when I think about it, it's like I'm cutting myself in half, like only the dragon with me is worth nurturing because it'll save me from some fate I'm running from while the demon in me will only drag me closer to it. But I know that if I really want any true lasting happiness in life I'll have to embrace both someday."

Dotty is quiet --perfectly quiet-- as she listens to your story. She seems saddened by the tale, as you'd expect, but there's something else in her eyes. Something like... sympathy, but more than just pity for your tragic history; there was a fire, like defiance... an outrage at the way you'd been treated.
"Strange, that though our worlds may seem so different, they may in fact be so similar. My world has more than its share of dreamers and inventors, but the idea that I could modify myself as others do their Digigotchi was... not a popular one. Perhaps if I'd had a mentor or someone with a similar inclination, I wouldn't have been such an outcast. It took many years before I was able to understand the fabric of our world enough to weave it into myself, and when I joyfully shared the discovery with my peers they shunned me like some kind of deviant... as though I'd cut off my own hand, or perhaps stitched another's organs into my abdomen. A few refused to believe that it was science, claiming instead that I had committed some vile or profane act in exchange for even this little bit of power. I know it probably doesn't compare to the suffering you've endured; I mean, I can pass as a normal person if I don't use my power, whereas you've ALWAYS had horns and scales..."
She kinda trails off, and you hear the faintest sound of a sniffle before she continues.
"You said you know illusion magic, right? Have you ever considered hiding your appearance in that way? Have... Would you show me, if you don't mind, how you would want to appear? Without, I guess, your horns and tail... without the things you don't like about yourself? I'd like to see what you wish you looked like."

Irathia shakes her head, " I don't want to change how I look. I tried that early in my career as an entertainer. The leader of my group had an experienced wizard friend that gave me scrolls with a spell that would change my appearance. I went out and used one and managed to start up a little physical relationship with a girl in the town. Every day I'd use a scroll and see her. then one day the spell ran out after we slept together. She couldn't have been more frightened when she woke up, thought I'd come to whisk her away to some dark place. I may not like that I was fated to be seen as a demon girl for most of my life the moment I was conceived but I'll be damned if I let that make me hate what I see in the mirror." Irathia said her face a mixture of anger sadness and determination. "Besides I like my tail...It's useful in bed." She managed to chuckle at that little addition.

Irathia's mood continues to brighten as she laughs, "You know dotty if you change yourself enough you might end up the mother of your own little race of techno-teiflings. That could be fun. maybe I could be their godmother. You shouldn't try and compare our suffering by the way. Feeling bad isn't a competition. Hell, I'm an entertainer at heart, I should be doing my best to cheer you up." Irathia asks pausing for a moment.

"Dotty I'm not going to lie , you're probably the smartest girl I've met in a long time. Smarter than I can imagine probably, and I like that a lot about you. So before I do anything stupid or get my hopes up too high I need to know. Am I barking up the wrong tree?" Irathia asked, sounding nervous.

Dotty looked down and away, her face unsure but flushed. "I don't... I mean, I've never..." she looks at you with a sense of sadness and uncertainty before looking away. She picked up a small tool, placing its point against the desk and spinning the handle with her hand. She seems to be thinking about something intently, and you notice a quick glance at your tail before she clears her throat and sits up a little straighter. "I'm not... against the idea..." she briefly bites her lip before turning her attention back to the screwdriver she's fiddling with.
Her head bobs back and forth for a short time, like one who is pondering things, before she slowly comes to a halt and stops moving. "It's not really a good time for... things... you know? I've never been with a woman, and certainly not anyone as exotic as you. I, well, I think maybe if we had more time, I'd like to get to know you better. I really would. But in less than a day, my world will be destroyed. The idea of spending my last hours with you sounds enticing, granted, but I'm not ready to die yet."
She pauses and takes a breath, batting back tears with a flutter of her eyelids. "I'm sorry. You've really been very pleasant company, and I hope I get to see you again before everything... you know, goes to shit. But I think the best thing you can do for me is to go out there and save the world."
She looks at you with mixed emotions, plastered over with a thick layer of faked courage. Concern, fear, and friendship are evident underneath, but you can see something deeper... a sense of uncertainty and hesitation.

"No no no, gods no." Irathia stands, smiling as she looks dotty in the eye. "I wouldn't dare push this on you like that. I want someone to love that'll love me back for who I am, not just a quick fling. If that means I have to beat the clock to save your world... well, I was going to do that anyway. And if there's Any chance at all that I might get you out of all this then I'll take on all the corruption in your world with my bare hands.And don't think that when, and I do mean when and not if, We beat the source of this corruption that you even have to to do anything for me."

Turning on her heels Irathia moves to leave the hack shack leaving the floating device on a table. She stops in the doorway, and looks back at dotty with a sad but determined smile, " I hope you don't worry about me while I'm gone now, I saved a nation once. I wasn't alone then and I'm not alone now. And Now I have someone to fight for. I can't lose now."

Dotty smiles pleasantly as you dismiss her fears. She doesn't say anything, but you can tell she's thankful that you didn't press the issue. As you move to leave, she runs forward and hands the flying boot to you.
"Take this. I don't know how much it will help, but I can't use it anyway. And..." she looks away, uncharacteristically shy, "if it hastens your quest, that's even better, right?"
There's a momentary touch as she hands you the boot, and then she turns and distracts herself with her devices.
"I have faith in you, Irathia," she calls from her workshop, "Stop in if you have the time."

Irathia smiles, holding up her two evo codes. " i manage a win at the gm... though admittedly i did chat a little it seems. I was wondering, do you have spellcasters here at all? Other than that i wanted to know how i actually use an evo code on these creatures? The ones i have aren't the right type but i figured i still needed to ask." irathia said moving forward. "Do i just try to use the like a spell?"

"Well, I only know a little bit about magic... I'd guess you could recite the code as an incantation. Most people 'round here enter the codes using buttons on the back or bottom of the Sphere of Trapping..." she presses a button on the sphere, which causes a small compartment to pop open. There are a dozen tiny buttons inside, each of which has a different number or letter on it. "The main thing is, code's aren't reusable. Each one is unique; even Codes of the same type won't look anything alike."

Irathia watches with genuine interest. As dotty showds her how to open the panel. Reapeating the action on one of her own orbs. " this is worlds away from what i'm use to. The weird little devices, thesr codes that can be magic or or put in with buttons. It's amazing really. " irathia said looking her orb over. " you say you know magic? What kind, I i'm looking to start fosing a bit more on pyromsacy. Maybe see where i can take that with my draconic and demonic roots..."

"Oh, well, I don't really know any myself, except I guess a bit of what I like to call 'Technomancy'. Ever since the Viral Glitch began corrupting our world, and D-Bug came to me with plans on undoing the damage, I've been studying lots of theories... alternate dimensions, realities, and timelines... metaphysics, astrology, even some conspiracy theories. D-Bug has enlightened me to some rules and forces that my peers don't understand, and I've been studying interactions between them and the aspects of my world. Long story short, I think I can use Evo Codes --which are basically forced evolutionary mutations-- to illicit similar effects in other races, not just Digigotchi. I used an 'Electricity' Code on myself, and the effect is quite fascinating."
She held out a finger, from which a small smark began to flicker, before leaping off and fizzling out on the way down.
"And, to a lesser extent, I believe I can create items which use similar principles to create metaphysical effects. Basically, I can make items and powers out of Evo Codes, though I have to warn you... the process isn't cheap."

Irathia listened intently, though dotty used many terms she wasn't familiar with. The general idra seemed simple enough even if there was a chsnce she'd never understand it all, ehe really needed to start reading again. " do you have anything you're working on now? I'm curious yo see how this works?" irathia asked, her tail twitching. Excitedly.

"Well... there is ONE thing that's been giving me some trouble... Here, come on back and I'll show you." Dotty led the way into her workshop, where dozens of metallic and electronic devices hang or are mounted on the walls. She pulled one from a bench and began strapping it to the bottom of her sandal.
"It's supposed to grant flight, or at least some manner of controlled hover, using a projected hard-light surface to emulate a weightless surfboard. The board SHOULD be suspended in midair once activated, using a system of electrical relays around a pair of Wind code modules. I've seen those codes give even rock-type Digis the ability to fly, but I can't figure out how to power the board. The battery charge doesn't seem to kick the code modules into gear... watch."
She used the toe of her other shoe to kick a button on the back of the device, which immediately caused a flickering oval of energy to radiate out beneath her feet. Lights on the side of the device began to glow tentatively, before flickering and sputtering out. There was a visible display of energy, however, that managed to raise Dotty about 4 centimeters off the ground before she lost power.
"See? Not enough power to the Wind modules. I've run the calculations, and the battery pack should be outputting 43% more watts than necessary. Hell, I spliced it into the building's electicity yesterday, just to make sure power output wasn't the problem. I just don't know what it'll take to get this damn boot off the ground."

Irathia sighs, finding something to sit on as she gives dotty a weak smile. " well I'm sure you can tell by looking at me but I'm not exactly human. I'm a teifling, Forever scared by some long-gone race of humans that turned to demons and dark gods to satisfy a thirst for power, leaving their descendants forever marked now matter how they might try to breed out the curse. Maybe that's why I'm so glad I prefer girls." Irathia sighs shaking her head, as she laughs. "you know what you said right now reminds me of myself. I grew up with people resenting me before they got to knew me, all because I had red skin, scales horns, and a tail. I never made friends who weren't teiflings as a kid, not for lack of trying but because any kid willing to give me a chance got pulled away by their parents who usually ran off soon after. But I alway hated my horns more than my scales. As my parents told me my scales meant the blood of a dragon ran strong in my veins. the story goes a great great grandmother managed to bed a gold dragon, part of me still wants to know how. But it gave me hope, hope that I could be more than the teifling people feared and hated when they saw her on the streets. I think it's why I loved reading stories so much. In a book even someone who was less than nothing could rise up and be a hero."

Irathia paused for a moment, seemingly reflecting on something. "I'm sorry dotty I'm getting bogged down in my own slightly tragic backstory. The short version is things did get better for me I have friends, all of them great and some of them powerful. Maybe I should introduce you to bayorth. she shouldn't be too far off. Anyway, when I came to the world the rest of these adventures are from things changed. The spark within me I'd always known was tied to my magical abilities seemed off, distant even, but at the same time my magic was so much more versatile though it's only in certain situations that I fully control what I do, so instead of going home I decided to treat it as a new adventure and see what I could see, no matter what happened. A while back we took part in a festival, and there was a shaman Offering tattoos that con grant blessing of power based upon your ancestry. I'd never turn down a chance to get closer to my dragon ancestry so I got one. whether it was good or bad I don't know but the first tattoo that came to him drew fro my demonic ancestry. It gave me back the ability to see in the dark that I lost when I changed worlds, which I was happy for, but it also woke up a dark magic in me one that just feels like it wants to cause pain...If I ever have to I'll use it but I don't like the feel of it. So no it's not exactly something that needs to be quelled, I'd actually forgotten about it for a while. And even though I may not want it I can't quite say that I'd want to be rid of the power either. Every so often when I think about it, it's like I'm cutting myself in half, like only the dragon with me is worth nurturing because it'll save me from some fate I'm running from while the demon in me will only drag me closer to it. But I know that if I really want any true lasting happiness in life I'll have to embrace both someday."

Dotty is quiet --perfectly quiet-- as she listens to your story. She seems saddened by the tale, as you'd expect, but there's something else in her eyes. Something like... sympathy, but more than just pity for your tragic history; there was a fire, like defiance... an outrage at the way you'd been treated.
"Strange, that though our worlds may seem so different, they may in fact be so similar. My world has more than its share of dreamers and inventors, but the idea that I could modify myself as others do their Digigotchi was... not a popular one. Perhaps if I'd had a mentor or someone with a similar inclination, I wouldn't have been such an outcast. It took many years before I was able to understand the fabric of our world enough to weave it into myself, and when I joyfully shared the discovery with my peers they shunned me like some kind of deviant... as though I'd cut off my own hand, or perhaps stitched another's organs into my abdomen. A few refused to believe that it was science, claiming instead that I had committed some vile or profane act in exchange for even this little bit of power. I know it probably doesn't compare to the suffering you've endured; I mean, I can pass as a normal person if I don't use my power, whereas you've ALWAYS had horns and scales..."
She kinda trails off, and you hear the faintest sound of a sniffle before she continues.
"You said you know illusion magic, right? Have you ever considered hiding your appearance in that way? Have... Would you show me, if you don't mind, how you would want to appear? Without, I guess, your horns and tail... without the things you don't like about yourself? I'd like to see what you wish you looked like."

Irathia shakes her head, " I don't want to change how I look. I tried that early in my career as an entertainer. The leader of my group had an experienced wizard friend that gave me scrolls with a spell that would change my appearance. I went out and used one and managed to start up a little physical relationship with a girl in the town. Every day I'd use a scroll and see her. then one day the spell ran out after we slept together. She couldn't have been more frightened when she woke up, thought I'd come to whisk her away to some dark place. I may not like that I was fated to be seen as a demon girl for most of my life the moment I was conceived but I'll be damned if I let that make me hate what I see in the mirror." Irathia said her face a mixture of anger sadness and determination. "Besides I like my tail...It's useful in bed." She managed to chuckle at that little addition.

Irathia's mood continues to brighten as she laughs, "You know dotty if you change yourself enough you might end up the mother of your own little race of techno-teiflings. That could be fun. maybe I could be their godmother. You shouldn't try and compare our suffering by the way. Feeling bad isn't a competition. Hell, I'm an entertainer at heart, I should be doing my best to cheer you up." Irathia asks pausing for a moment.

"Dotty I'm not going to lie , you're probably the smartest girl I've met in a long time. Smarter than I can imagine probably, and I like that a lot about you. So before I do anything stupid or get my hopes up too high I need to know. Am I barking up the wrong tree?" Irathia asked, sounding nervous.

Dotty looked down and away, her face unsure but flushed. "I don't... I mean, I've never..." she looks at you with a sense of sadness and uncertainty before looking away. She picked up a small tool, placing its point against the desk and spinning the handle with her hand. She seems to be thinking about something intently, and you notice a quick glance at your tail before she clears her throat and sits up a little straighter. "I'm not... against the idea..." she briefly bites her lip before turning her attention back to the screwdriver she's fiddling with.
Her head bobs back and forth for a short time, like one who is pondering things, before she slowly comes to a halt and stops moving. "It's not really a good time for... things... you know? I've never been with a woman, and certainly not anyone as exotic as you. I, well, I think maybe if we had more time, I'd like to get to know you better. I really would. But in less than a day, my world will be destroyed. The idea of spending my last hours with you sounds enticing, granted, but I'm not ready to die yet."
She pauses and takes a breath, batting back tears with a flutter of her eyelids. "I'm sorry. You've really been very pleasant company, and I hope I get to see you again before everything... you know, goes to shit. But I think the best thing you can do for me is to go out there and save the world."
She looks at you with mixed emotions, plastered over with a thick layer of faked courage. Concern, fear, and friendship are evident underneath, but you can see something deeper... a sense of uncertainty and hesitation.

"No no no, gods no." Irathia stands, smiling as she looks dotty in the eye. "I wouldn't dare push this on you like that. I want someone to love that'll love me back for who I am, not just a quick fling. If that means I have to beat the clock to save your world... well, I was going to do that anyway. And if there's Any chance at all that I might get you out of all this then I'll take on all the corruption in your world with my bare hands.And don't think that when, and I do mean when and not if, We beat the source of this corruption that you even have to to do anything for me."

Turning on her heels Irathia moves to leave the hack shack leaving the floating device on a table. She stops in the doorway, and looks back at dotty with a sad but determined smile, " I hope you don't worry about me while I'm gone now, I saved a nation once. I wasn't alone then and I'm not alone now. And Now I have someone to fight for. I can't lose now."

Dotty smiles pleasantly as you dismiss her fears. She doesn't say anything, but you can tell she's thankful that you didn't press the issue. As you move to leave, she runs forward and hands the flying boot to you.
"Take this. I don't know how much it will help, but I can't use it anyway. And..." she looks away, uncharacteristically shy, "if it hastens your quest, that's even better, right?"
There's a momentary touch as she hands you the boot, and then she turns and distracts herself with her devices.
"I have faith in you, Irathia," she calls from her workshop, "Stop in if you have the time."

"Noooooo!" The young trainer howls in frustration as he sees his last Digigotchi rendered unconscious. "I knew I needed to train more!"
He seems crestfallen as he approaches you with a Cr.Card in the palm of his hand. "Here, you earned it. Gym rules. I... well, if I gotta' lose, I guess I'm glad I lost to someone as cool looking as you."

oh shit I won

"Yes." Irathia cheered rushing forward and giving dotales a hug. As she stands and the trainer approaches her she gazes at him with a smile, accepting the Cr card. "cool? that's a first. I've scarcely heard beautiful and exotic ...or any other compliment for that matter, ButI'm pretty sure this is the first time I've been called cool...Well, anyway, thanks for the battle. I might come back later to say hello, and I hope this isn't crossing the line but..." Irathia leans down and plants a light kiss on the trainer's cheek. "A kiss goodbye seemed in order for my little teacher. See you later." Calling dotales back into its orb irathia left the gym, heading back toward the hack shack.

Dotales' tails entrance the electric snake, who seems too thoroughly transfixed to do anything. Your attack was successful!
