time line: No specific one T.O.D: mid-morning tags: Open! (I like seeing who will reply! ha-ha)
She was running. Yes, running; why? Because her opinions and loud mouth got her into trouble and now she had to run for her life while wearing a stinking belly-dancer costume. Though, the out fit she really didn't mind cause it was rather comfortable but the whole running away in it was not the best idea and the fact that Moros was nowhere to be seen and he had her bow and short sword. Looking over her shoulder she let out a small yelp. The guards were fast; it wasn't like she was insulting someone. Kazira jumped over a crate. OK that was a lie. How was she supposed to know that the Noble's son was right behind her when she had said that he was a clod hopping lunatic? Kazira sighed again as she ducked under a low sign snickering when she heard a few choice words from some of the guards who didn't see it. How did this happen again? Kazira's mind wandered back to why she was even in the town in the first place.
She had been hired to do a performance for one of the local Noble's sons. Kazira had decided that she was low on some money and that it would be OK to earn some extra money. She even had the perfect outfit. It was a black cropped peasant blouse that ended under her breasts with a silver, red, blue and green beaded bustier. A pair of semi-translucent black harem pants with the same colored skirt,as her bustier, tired around her waist with many silver coins on it so it made a bell-like sound. When she arrived at the Noble's overly furnished abode she had asked if she could practice her performance in the great hall before the evening; she was excited when they had said yes. During her practice she had gained a crowd, in the form of the staff. One of the servants asked why she decided to dance for the nobles.
"Honestly, I'm only doing if for the money. For all I know the son could be a clod- hopping- lunatic for all I know." She didn't notice that the servant girl had turned deathly pale until a throat was cleared from behind her. Kazira grew stiff as a board before looking at the frightened girl before her. "He's right behind me isn't he? The girl had nodded. "Thought so." she muttered before turning around and saw the look that he was giving her. With a nervous smile she took off running ignoring the outraged cry from the son and ran out of the doors and out of the town.
Now here she was running through the town her skirt alerting anyone in the vicinity that something was around. This was just a fantabulous day.
"Could this get any worse?" Kazira wished on any gods or whatever was out there that it didn't

She let a small smile grace her face in agreeance to his words about both of the things she mentioned being difficult. She had no hidden fantasies about life and new that it was hard. She still had some difficulty asking for help. Kazira saw him stiffen and sighed. It seems that her mouth will once again get her into trouble. She hated the fact everyone had titles and decided that she was going to treat everyone the same. While she knew she wasn't trying to be disrespectful others, though, won't see it that way.
Kazira nodded her head. "Yes I do. They tend to be the one's who hire me" She noticed that his tone had changed when he had asked the question. Yes she had defiantly insulted him. There went her chances of her asking him if he knew of any job that needed to be done. " Why do you ask?" She had to ask. Kazira had her suspicions but she wanted to be sure. Moros had looked over at her with an 'I-told-you-so' look in his eyes before he got up and trotted over and sat between them. Watching their interactions.
Moros knew that if she had dropped the title something like this would happen. Its happened several times before but somehow it usually ended out with her getting a job but he wanted to see how this one turned out. Maybe this one would lock her up for her disrespect or maybe he'll listen to her and tell her to watch her mouth like so many others have before. Moros let out a small snort as he looked up at the two. It wouldn't be the first time she's spent in the dungeons either. She's had her hands broken before they brought her out and she performed so job or another and then released her and somewhat ignored her slight jabs at them. She usually ended up with a few friends by the end of her stay before they decide to leave. Moros sincerely hoped that this ended up like those other times just without the torture or the dungeons.

He seemed concerned about something was what Kazira thought when she had listed off what she could do. But she put it off as to her being a stranger. If there had been past problems she didn't hear about them or she probably did and just didn't remember. Kazira highly doubt though that they would want such information leaking out to other kingdoms. "My father was the one who taught me how to use a bow. For the most part I am self taught; an old knight told me that the best way to learn is to do so from experience but also to take the time and ask for help." A fond smile slid easily onto her face "But the old coot decided that I needed to know a little more and helped me expand my range with a little hand to hand." She frowned at the memory it was shortly after that his life gave way and he passed on. He was very close to her, despite him being a knight he was kind to her till his dying day despite him knowing what she was. He was the grandfather she never had, he took her in and gave her his name to pass on to the future. In truth she had no last name but she kept it in honor of him. She brought her thoughts back to Arthur, his aura seemed to be conflicted sad, but Kazira decided that she would stay quiet, didn't want to seem to conspicuous
She listened as Arthur told her of the short tempers and the thin patience within Camelot and with what she could see, Kazira could understand. She really wished she could learn to control her big mouth and temper. "Yes I can see that from the old man. Who I must apologize to before the day is done." She looked at Moros and nodded her head he was a good companion when he wasn't nagging her all of the time about being careful and respectful to both nobles and royalty. " I will keep an eye on him, though sometimes i wish someone would eat him, he is still a close friend." She looked at him curiously. "Yes," she said a bit confused. "He is the only one. Horses are to much bother for me to travel with. Don't get me wrong I love them to death, but most horses don't like to be around if I am traveling with Moros."
Kazira tilted her head to the side her bangs getting in her face. "Besides, what's the fun of traveling on a horse when you can walk and enjoy what is all around you. With all of the things one must do its often nice to take the time to unwind and let your feet take you to a place you've never been before, or back to a place long forgotten." She closed her eyes and smirked. "Sorry if this all sounds like a loud of blarney to you, Arthur."
She cracked open an eye and looked at Moros who was giving her the 'why-did-you-just-drop-the- title' look and she rolled her eyes. He was such a worry wart. She was just surprised earlier hence the title but now she was back to her usual self and she decided she didn't feel like using a title for him. Even if she got in trouble. She wouldn't change how she acted because he was royalty, but she would tone it down just a little for the current situation.

"Yes, I guess you could say that; I've been trained in the art of dagger play and the bow and arrows. She paused putting a finger to her chin."I've dabbled in hand to hand combat as well so I guess I'm skilled enough to get by. Most of those creatures were weak anyways, a child could kill one." Kazira stated but muttered the last part. In truth the creatures were 'weak' to a witch but to a normal person they wouldn't really last but he didn't have to know that, she didn't want to cause trouble despite what people thought when they saw her. Sometimes she wished that she didn't have her magic but she couldn't help who she was.
Kazira nodded she wasn't about to argue with another vendor, who knew what they could do. She's met some in the past that stabbed a few people for arguing and they looked like such kind old people. But this time she was just shocked at the price and her anger and hunger got the best of her...along with her big mouth. "I'll keep that in mind. I don't like to cause trouble despite this little...Episode (if that's what you want to call it)." She paused after hearing his question. 'Well, it depends on how one thinks of alone. if you meant did I travel here with another person? Then no. I actually traveled here with my companion, who just so happens to be a dog by the name of Moros." She pointed behind Arthur to the quite large dog laying down out of the way watching them his gold eyes question. She couldn't help but think"like you're not listening to what's going on you mutt."
"That is Moros before you ask where he is." She smiled to show that she meant no disrespect. "I'll admit though, he is quit large, and kind of hard to miss." She said this jokingly because amazingly people did over look the black dog when they entered new places mostly focusing on herself, which she found quite annoying by the way but accepted it as animals weren't as abnormal as humans.

Kazira raise a brow at the comment. She couldn't help but be mildly shocked. She knew that someone would catch her using it sometime but with her being in Camelot she couldn't use it as much seeing as if one of the nights caught her she would either be killed or forced to leave. She really didn't want to do that. Moros and Kazira watched as the girl raised the earth slightly before realizing somewhat. At least she finally knew someone who used magic. She was a bit annoyed that she couldn't talk to anyone, except Moros and all he did was lecture her, about magic.
"My name is Kazira." She stated with a smile sheathing her daggers. "A pleasure to meet another magic user. Though, I've met many people you are the first one who was able to use magic." She laughed a little as Moros growled, it seemed he didn't like being left out of the introductions if he could help it. "And the annoying black dog behind me is Moros. Excuse him if he acts like a nagging old fool, its just a part of who he is." She shrugged and looked at the dog and raised a brow asking if that was a good introduction only to have him bite her calf.
She yelped loudly looking at him with annoyance. "Well I thought it was a fairly good introduction. If you want a different one you do it your self you mutt." she muttered before looking back at Rochette with a sheepish smile. "Sorry about that. Moros is a bit of a pain sometimes, no pun intended."

Both Kazira and Moros stopped fighting and looked at the new additions to the area. A woman on a stallion. The woman was rather pretty with dark hair and eyes. The stallion was as pretty as it's rider. Kazira nodded her head in greeting and sent a small smile.
"Hello ma'am." Kazira stated not really know what else to say. "What brings you to this area? If you don't mind me asking that is."
Kazira waited for the woman to answer while taking a quick glance at Moros who seemed to be wary. He looked up at her with his pale gold eyes and then turned them to the woman. Kazira nodded, they had been together for so long she didn't need words to know what the gist of what the gestures ment. He was telling her to be cautious of strangers. She gave a dead panned look. Did he really think that she cared? She had talked to several people already and they turned out just fine. The one thing she hoped was that this newcomer had not seen her wielding her magic and if so she sincerely hoped they she wouldnt turn her in.
She looked back at the woman and waited the calm and serene smile never leaving her face.

She noticed that her once over made him a little uncomfortable and found it kind of cute. She was curious about him. He was a knight tied to Arthur but not the knights of Camelot?
"How does that work out?" She thought raising a brow while relaxing slightly at his admission. Kazira nodded and let a silly smile slip onto her lips making her sky blue eyes glitter. Deciding she wanted to be a little silly she did a short bow.
"Well hello there Sir Lancelot Du Lac. It is a pleasure to meet you." That was all she could do before bursting into a fit of giggles. "I'm sorry; I'm sorry, I couldn't resist being a little silly. She smiled and walked up to him and stuck her hand out.
"My name is Kazira Astras and it really is a pleasure to meet you." She patted the horse softly with a smile still on her face."And who is this fine creature?" She paused."If you don't mind may I ask why you came back? If you don't want to answer that is fine, I was just curious--In turn you may ask any questions you have of me."
Kazira truly hoped that she didn't offend him in any way with her question. She like him, he had a kind aura that seemed to scream good guy. When she looked at him again and saw what looked to be an underlining sadness. But that could be her mind playing tricks on her.

She nodded in understanding. But the offer was out there should they decide to act upon it. But she couldn't help but smile at him. To her he seemed so naive and cautious. Not trusting those he just met on a whim. Again she admired that in some people, others, well it wasn't so admirable.
"Yes I suppose it would be at this point and time," she said. "Oh I saved them from being killed a couple times from creatures of old, and so that's why they own me a few favors nothing big. But my previous offer is on the table should you need it at anytime."
She listened to him as he stated there were many motels. She really wasn't in to staying in builds but she would probably check them out just to set other's minds at ease. She once again smiled at the older prince, at least she assumed that he was older than her.
"In all honesty I don't know how long I will be hear. I travel a lot so its a shot in the wind." She shrugged nonchalantly, at this point she just wanted to get something to eat relax help someone and do some odd jobs just to raise some money. "It could be years, months, or even days. I guess it all depends on the jobs that I do or how I like the place."
Kazira let out a small laugh. "Nomads aren't known to settle down in any one place for too long so that might put your mind at ease."

Setting: Empty field High noon Timeline: No specific timeline really Tag:Anyone (preferable those with magic but still)
Kazira sighed in happiness and the small Flame danced in her hand. It has been a while since she was able to use her magic. It felt great, she had needed to do this. All the pent up emotions had made her lax in the control of the temperamental element. She often wondered when she was alone and working if she should just use her powers but decided against it; her parents had always stated that if she was to obtain anything she should not use her powers but her own mind and strength.
That was the life that she had chosen to lead. Only using her powers to help those that needed it or to protect the innocent without anyone knowing what she was. The water element was easy to control but the fire was always the most difficult considering it was ever changing. Holding her other hand up she produced a ball of water letting the fire die out.
"Its amazing how one element can do so much damage but also be so soothing and replenishing." Moros, who had been sitting next to her said.
Kazira nodded slightly. "Yes; but I've learned through these times that even the most beautiful thing in the world can hold the most lethal weapons and the most ugly could have the best effects. It just takes people to see past the surface to understand the forbidden." She sighed and stood up drawing her daggers. "But they won't look past it because they fear what is unknown. A sad fate that humans have don't you think? Moros do you think that you could train with me?"
Moros nodded and attacked Kazira who dodged.
"Maybe things will be different in the future." Kazira thought.

Kazira gasped as she sat up and looked at the man that had approached. She didnt think that anyone was around when she had been singing. Not that she had a bad voice or anything but it was just embarrasing to let someone hear her. She usually only sang or did anything like that when she was hired to perform for groups. Taking a calming breath she placed a hand over her heart; she looked him over. He was rather handosme with his brown hair and eyes.
"Thank you." She said, " I learned it from my mother...A long time ago."
She stood up to get a better look at him. She had never seen him before since she's been in Camelot for only a month. Though that may be why, she didn't know half of the people there and most avoided her even when she was in her dress.
She tilted her head to the side her wet hair spilled over her shoulder as she looked at him curiously.
"Who are you?" She asked reaching for her dagger just in case he was an enemy. "Where did you come from?"
Post by †Kazira Astras† on Jun 29, 2010 22:38:37 GMT -5
She nodded her head. She could understand that everything takes time. Kazira couldn't help but hear the suspicion in his voice despite the gracious answer he gave but shrugged it off. She was quite used to it happening but again she couldn't help but wonder what happened in the past.
" Yes I can understand that," she said good naturedly."But if there is a need I could ask some of the traders to send some goods this way if there are shortages anywhere. Several of them owe me a favor or two."
"That and several of them seem to worship her since she saved them from some magical creatures a while back." She mentally laughed.
She looked back at the vendor and sighed, she would have to apologize to him as well. She didn't mean to upset anyone here. Usually she was quite aware of her surroundings but this time her hunger got the best of her. Kazira blinked when Arthur had asked if she any family or friends here.
"No, I don't haven any family here, or friends for that matter." She shook her head and smiled as a sad look entered her eyes; yes she did have a family here at one point in time but they were long gone. Kazira could come to admire this man and his kindness. She could already tell that he has a good heart and that he greatly cares for his people."But thank you for asking, I am grateful for the concern."
Post by †Kazira Astras† on Jun 29, 2010 21:42:51 GMT -5
Kazira looked at him with wide shocked eyes. He was a pince! She really couldnt be more shocked. Kazira mentally sighed well she was right earlier he was someone important she just didnt think that he was the heir to the throne that was why it shocked her so much.
"I could," she said the guilty look coming back into her eyes. "I apolgize for my behavior, I lose control when I get angry and my mouth works faster than my mind at times."
She laughed lightly but was curious as to why he asked where she came from. For a peasant to ask that was normal, she didnt look like the usual travelar who dressed in the cotton instead of leather, but for royalty it was rather odd. She couldnt help but wonder what happened here to make him ask.
She looked at him in shock. She hadnt meant to be right when she stated that it looked like a dragon had attacked. She looked down and apologized. Dragon's could be vicious things but the one's she met in different areas were rather nice and wouldnt attack with out some reason to do so. Kazira didnt expect those who dont know or understand magic to know that information. Even she didnt know it till she encountered a female one protecting her eggs and almost killing her at least until she realize that Kazira ment no harm.
"I just came from the coast, east of here." Kazira stated. "I just finished a trade, and decided to come this way. I haven't been here since I was young." She looked up at him. "Is there anyway that I may help? I know that things must be hard right now and i know that many probably won't trust me since i dont really live here but I would still like to help," she paused. "That is if you dont mind your highness."
Post by †Kazira Astras† on Jun 29, 2010 17:27:50 GMT -5
Kazira felt the man's hand on her arm as he pulled her to the side away from the old man, who she stuck her tongue out at childishly, her ire was still there. The flames flickered slightly in her eyes, and her fists were still clenched. Funnily enough she still wanted to punch him.
"Though what he said did make sense, the price was still to high in my opinion," she begrudgingly admitted. She let her eyes wander and noticed the damage to the place though a lot looked like its been repaired it still looked like an attack of some kind happened. Now she felt extremely guilty. Why hadn't she realized this before?
She bowed her head in sadness while slightly wincing at his tone she wasn't used to people talking like that to her most were either cold or completely ignored her; Kazira unclenched her fists and began to rub her wrists before she answered the man before her.
"My name is Kazira Astras." Looking up she gave a half hearted smile. She was still upset but it wasn't as bad as before. "Might I ask who you are?"
She was genuinely curious about the man before her. Of course she met both nobility and royalty alike, some were better than others but she generally didn't like to deal with the pompous attitudes. If he was nobility what was he doing here? Most didn't bother to come into the towns.
"Maybe," she thought. "He's different from the others?" Kazira looked at him and then back at the damage that was still around it brought another question to her mind and without thinking she blurted it out. "What happened here? It looks like a dragon decided to play arson."
Only after she said it did she cover her mouth with wide eyes. The thought wasn't supposed to come out of her mind but it did and hopefully her big mouth didn't get her into any more trouble.

Setting:Twilight by the river closest to Camelot Timeline: Just a month after Season two ends Tag:Lancelot Song: River of Time by Lauren Christy
Kazira sat on the bank looking at the sparkling water before she smiled and jumped into the water. She squealed at the cold water but that same smile was still on her face. She just loved to be in water, whenever something was wrong or stressful a good dip in a lake, or river in this case, made everything better. She was glad though that Moros was still wandering otherwise she would be getting a lecture on how it was not lady like to jump into a freezing cold river.
"Blech," she thought. "Lectures are boring when there is so much nature around."
Kazira wasnt normally like this. She didn't just go and jump into lakes for the heck of it. Most of the time it was for bathing or cooling off after a long day of traveling. But being a new and unfamiliar place especially Camelot for some reason put her on edge, besides setting things on fire she enjoyed the water and the calmness it brings. She laid in the water and looked at the Twilight sky disappearing between the trees a song her mother sang to her came into her head.
"I saw the river today and it made me feel okay, But I never ever had a lot to say, Reading a book take a look at a boat go by, oh, oh, oh, oh I sigh -
I've been throwing a coin into the river Make a wish as I watch the water quiver, Now and then i go walking by the river of time, Leaving all my thoughts behind
I saw the river today and it made me feel free, Oh tell me what is happening to me, I catch my reflection and suddenly see, The woman the girl couldn't be
So I'm throwing my youth into the river, Make a wish as I watch the water quiver, Now and then i go walking by the river of time, Leaving all my thoughts behind
Winter comes and goes, and the wind it blows, Still the water flows, and everybody knows, Come the summertime all the churches chime For the river of time
I saw the river today and I started to cry, Cause the promise it made was a lie, Stumbling brook you're a crook, take a look and see See what you've done to me" Kazira pasued and sighed as she turned over and swan through the water before she continued to sing.
"So I'm throwing my heart into the river, Forget the wish that you never could deliver, Now and then I go walking by the river of time, Leaving all my thoughts behind
Winter comes and goes, and the wind it blows, Still the water flows, and everybody knows, Come the summertime all the churches chime For the river of time
So I'll keep throwing a coin into the river, Forget the wish that you never could deliver, Now and then I go walking by the river of time, Leaving all my thoughts behind
See as your life changes as you're pulled along by time." Kazira got out of the water and laid down on the shore and looked up at the sky continueing to hum and sing the song. It had been a long time since she had thought of her mother or even the song she sang but it seemed to calm her down and make the Twilight seem even more beautiful to her. She blinked and flinched when she felt water running down her cheek. She knew it wasn't from the river, it was her tear. More replaced the one she wiped away as she silently cried. She didnt realize till now how much she truly missed her family. Especially the little sister that barely got to expirience the world she had been taken from. Well, this was not what she was wanting to do but the more she tried to stop the tears from flowing the more that fell. Seconds later Kazira decided to quit trying to stop them and just laid there looking up at the sky. Not noticing what was happening around her or who was around.

[Oh its no problem at all . It takes place a about a month after the Great Dragon attack around mid-morning.]
The owner of the new voice startled Kazira causing the guilty look to strengthen. Whoever it was had authority and this was not the way to start off in a new place. Glanceing over at the vendor she saw him bow. She mentally cringed, this was someone important.
"Great just great, I had to go and open my big mouth. I wouldn't be surprised that this man is part of the nobility or something like that." Kazira thought.
She looked at the at man. He was tall, that was for sure, but most people were taller than her. She took in his appearance closely. He was actually quite handsome and he held himself with confidence.
"Like a prince," she thought before telling him what was going on. "This old geezer is charging four pounds for meat on a stick. Its overly priced and its wrong. I know for a fact that its close to five or six shillings."
With that said the Vendor turned towards her and glared. Stating that his goods were not over priced. Kazira looked away from the new commer and glared at the old man the fire in her eyes growing.
"They are too old man and you keep raising the price first it was four pounds now its six." Kazira stated clenching her fist. She was seriously tempted to punch him.

Kazira walked into the town of Camelot with Moros, her black dog companion. She was slightly awed by the place. Yeah sure she has been to similar places before but she never saw the people so happy. They were usually kind of sullen and lost.
"Hey Moros," She started."What do you think this place is going to be like?"
Kazira looked down at Moros with curious sky blue eyes. The dog seemed to shrug and continued to trot next to her.
"Oh Morose really don't be such a pessimist." Kazira stated."To be honest though Moros I'm kinda of Nervous being here, being what I am and all."
Moros looked up at her again but with understanding eyes.
"Kazira you have nothing to worry about, as long as you don't get angry and set something on fire or flood the place you'll be fine. Moros laughed. Besides what would they know about witch's? They're not that easy to spot considering they're human as well. Just with a few extra gifts.
Kazira sighed at her friend but could not help but let out a little chuckle. He was right as long as she didn't get angry everything would be fine. At that very moment her stomach growled at her. Looking around she blushed. With how loud her stomach was she wouldn't have been surprised if someone had heard it. Seeing that no one had actually heard her stomach's roar for food she relaxed and looked around.
"I wonder if there is a tavern around or at least a food vendor." She thought. "I think that I have some money left."
She pulled out her pouch and shook it hearing it jingle slightly she smiled. Yes she had enough for a bite to eat and something to drink. She walked down, what she assumed was, the main street and saw a food vendor.
"Yippee!" She thought happily. "Food here I come!"
She jogged over to the vendor and asked for one meat on a stick. What she heard didn't set well with her. The amount it cost was more than what she had.
"Are you kidding me!?" Kazira yelled incredulously."You want me to pay four pounds for some meat on a stick!? That's outrageous! I could get that in Danvale for five shillings!"
Kazira and the Vendor continued to yell at each other over the price, thus causing quite a commotion and drawing in a crowd.
"Well this is certainly not what I was wanting to do. I just wanted some stinking food." Kazira thought."Hey! you raised the price again! Stop it you old man, I'm not going to pay six pounds for that, when its not worth that much!"
Kazira's ire was starting to rise and her sky blues eyes seemed to ignite. Moros sat off to the side watching the two humans bicker.
"This is not good. If someone doesn't step in soon the whole place will be on fire." He paused in his thinking. "And I certainly don't want to have to bite someone to get it to stop I don't know when these people last took a bath and old men don't taste very good at all."
When Kazira was about to start yelling at the old vendor again someone stepped in causing the two to look over in shock, they hadn't realized they caused that big of a disturbance. The fire remained in Kazira's eyes but her face donned a guilty look to it.
"This day could not get worse than right now... could it?"
Post by †Kazira Astras† on Jun 26, 2010 21:51:47 GMT -5
The day started out well for Kazira. No one tried to rob, hit on, or kill her since she arrived Camelot. She really could find nothing wrong with this place. Looking around the market place she spots tons of vendors selling various items. She stopped and looked some small trinkets that captured her eye. It was a a leather headband. It was quite plain with only a few blue beads here and there but it suited her just fine.
"I think that this will be perfect to keep my hair out of my face!" Kazira thought happily.
She pulled out her money pouch only to blink very slowly as a moth came flying out of it. Her previously happy mood deflated as she tied it closed and thanked the vendor.
"I forgot I was out of money." Kazira muttered. "You'd that, that was something I would remember but no."
Kazira played with her dagger. As she walked she noticed she was getting some odd looks. Not that she could blame them though, she would have been looking as well if she saw someone dressed in leathers and carrying weapons. Oddly she was used to the staring, and it didn't really bother her. If she could have she would have changed into her dress but she just got there early that morning. Kazira's thoughts began to wander.
"By the way, where is that mutt Moros? I swear if he gets himself into trouble here I'm not going to save his sorry hide again. I specifically remember telling him to stick close when we enter large cities or towns. But does he listen to me? No of course not why would he listen to someone who is always saving his butt." Kazira thought.
She walked on still lost in thought before she bumped into someone. Knocked out of her thoughts Kazira looked up and saw a girl with dirty blond hair.
"I'm so sorry," Kazira stated looking over her making sure she hadn't made the girl drop something. "I wasn't looking where I was going. Are you alright?"
"So much for this being a good day." Kazira thought absentmendedly.

Kazira’s Life was never easy not even to this day. Her father sado back in ireland was a reverred seer but due to the expanding roman armies and fights amonst the clans he left. Her mother arabella was known for her vast knowledge in herbs and for her curses. Spiteful wives and lovers made frequent visits to their home at the time.Both of her parents were Witches/Sorcerers, who often moved from place to place always moving to small villages being that they were nomads and couldn’t really stay in one place for too long. They ended up in a small coastal town called Segontium, which used to house the Romans. Without letting the people there know what they were the two settled down to begin a family.
It would be nine months after they completely settled in; Sado and Arabella had a little girl who they named Kazira. During the time of her birth they had heard news that the King in Camelot had an heir. The news excited everyone, well except those who had the gift of sight for them this was only the beginning of a wave of death. Sado knew that something terrible was going to happen soon after then brought news that the kings wife died in child birth and he was not wrong. The king had begun a war with the magical community. The new parents packed up some belongings and moved on before the knights could come and find out what they were, which would have been easy to avoid if Kazira had no powers but she did and they went off quite a few times. The family traveled and as they did Kazira grew more powerful as she got older. Whenever they had the time Sado and Arabella would teach Kazira all that they knew and sometimes when they would meet others they would teach her as well. They taught her many languages seeing as to how much they traveled, they taught her how to defend herself with and without magic. as she grew up she learned to control the out bursts of magic and went into villages and learned from the 'urchins' how to steal and pick pockets.
She grew up moving from town to town never getting used to being in one place for too long. She was 15 years old when her mother had another child, her little sister, Tea. Two years passed before they needed to settle for a while till Tea grew older so that traveling would become easier so they settled down in the forest some odd distance away from Camelot. One day though something didn’t feel right to Kazira and she didn’t want to leave her family but Sador had told her to go and get some water thus making her reluctantly leave the campsite. The nearest river was about six miles away from their location, when Kazira was about halfway there she head the quick sound of screams before it was just silence. Kazira had continued to the river and got the water before she returned to the camp when she was but half way their she had gotten a sense of foreboding that twister her gut and forced her to run and drop the pale of water in her wake. When she reached the campsite she had been mortified her family was lying on the ground, dead. Kazira couldn’t stand the site so she walked a little ways away to calm down before she continued on and made a pyre for her family. As she set the pyres on fire she grabbed a bag of her belongings and a few memorabilia from her family before walking away an orphan. She traveled the countryside learning new ways to use her magic. On this travel she learned that she had an affinity with the elements over water and fire granted she still had to say the words but she found that she didn't have to say them aloud to be able to use them. just thinking of the spells would allow her to wield her nature magic as she had begun to call it. She was 17 when she met an old knight with no children. She stayed for a few months helping around the home earning a bit of pocket change but the old knight saw the potential fighter that was inside and offered to train her. He finally died when she was 18 years only a year of training but he had felt that she was ready. The young knight who had stopped by had been on a journey and vowed to see her again. his name was Cole. But when Lord astras died he gave her his name and the last of his secrets. She watched the funeral pyre burn and left with a hug to her 'adoptive' mother and only later did she hear that Lady astras passed shortly after she left.
Kazira just worked odd jobs when she traveled, taking one day our of each year to honor both of her families deaths and secretly she continued to train her magic. One day she stumbled upon a strange sight a group of horses were standing in a circle looking at the ground. Being the curious being she was she wandered over and heard hushed voices talking about just stepping on the thing and putting it out of its misery. Looking under the legs she saw a dog and it was not just any dog; it was a black and white injured dog. Telling, well more like ordering them to move, Kazira bent down and began to heal the poor animal’s leg. That day was the day she gained a companion in the dog who was called, Moros. Now in the present time she is in Camelot trying to figure out what she was going to do there and if there was any job that she could do for the “king” without him knowing what she was. She continues to search for something that is missing in her life as she continues to travel picking up on traditions a a few tricks from the other cultures that she has been traveling to since she was young. .
