Calypso had proceeded with her little exercise as she ran up and down one of the hills upon this sandy plain, often panting as she got to the top. This war, it came so fast, too fast, way too fast for her to prepare. She didn't get nearly enough time with Sis, and now she was super busy with stuff.. She wished she was here, but she had duties, while Caly really only did what came to her own little mind. She had helped many demons as the war raged, in any spots where there was conflict, or where there was innocents, but now... She just wanted to destress, and figure out a better plan of action. Demon World was currently unaffected, so that didn't scare her; she'd have joined in if it was in any way hit.
Because then, it would be her kin and home world in danger, even if she felt she didn't belong anywhere. They didn't deserve more strife.
So really, her only option was to get stronger, here, even if she accidentally dropped herself in some wastes. As she ran up and down, she kind of wondered what happened here, mayhaps what this place was before it was rendered nothing but sand. What flora grew here? What creatures frolicked amongst it? Were there people, cities? These thoughts buzzed in her mind, mostly to pry her mind off the feeling that her legs hurt from the continuous fight against gravity.
That is, til she sensed something rather funny. Not 'ha ha! a joke!' funny, it was weird funny, strange funny... She had stopped her activity, initially thinking she was alone, but knew that was false now. She looked around in the direction the strange feeling came from, it was like a cold nipping at her heart, like it threatened to rob her breath at any second without a second thought...
And there she saw, and heard, a man suddenly before her. Within a blink, it was like he skipped the whole walking process, and was right in her face, speaking cold words of her stench, and rather quickly introducing himself. She sensed the bloodlust pouring off of him like a leaking dam, but she didn't appear scared, just mildly confounded by his sudden appearance. She was quiet for a few seconds, staring into his red eyes, emotions of cool sadness and past regrets nipping her like the frosty breath of a winter's night, along with confusions, as if she was asked many 'why's."...She's my Mama."
The girl's lips parted to finally give the answers the man desired, her hands crossed and clasped on her chest, as if she were guarding her heart from being snatched away, "I-I didn't know these wastes were yours, or anybody's.. I'm real sorry for trespassing, sir."
Her head tipped down in clear regret, visibly apologetic, rather than quivering in fear of this man."My name is Calypso Asthavon... I'm... Not really 'in league' with my mama, at all. Or anyone. I'm on my own mostly. I dunno if you thought I was a Shadow Fall agent or whatever, but i'm not. I act on my own. I can leave, if me being here is a bother, mister.. All I was doing was trying to get stronger to help others affected by this crappy war...""...But there's one thing I gotta ask.."
Her head rose, golden eyes glimmering with equally golden tears forming in them, "..Why are you so sad? Are you okay?"
