Open RL for Stein's DADA Students  
Stein's Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom was decorated slightly differently from others. In fact, one might think it was a Potion's class, given the shelves lining one wall that contained various sectioned pieces of various creatures, floating grotesquely in jars.

Another might think it was actually a classroom for Care of Magical Creatures, though none of the carefully labelled and mounted supernatural creatures decorating the room actually needed any care, other than a little bit of dusting.

"Good morning, class," Stein said, rolling out of his office and out to the front of the class on his patchworked chair. "We're going to do something a little different today. Wands away, and please stand up."

With a flick of his own wand, all of the desks were pushed to the outside of the room. A large table appeared suddenly in the cleared middle of the room.

"I'd like you all to say hello to our special guests for today's class. One of them you'll be familiar with, of course," continued Stein cheerfully as two boys emerged from his office and moved quietly to the table.

"You all know Tachibana Shito, Slytherin's House Zombie and my personal assistant for this class," Stein said as the two boys hopped up to sit on the table. "And please welcome Radu Barvon, who very graciously agreed to come to help with today's class. He is a vampire, who's come all the way from Egypt. Please do your best to make him feel welcome, and mind the fangs."

Radu shot Stein a haughty look and then glanced around the room with a bored expression, while Shito sat sullenly, glaring at anyone who was unlucky enough to meet his gaze.

"I invite all of you to examine both samples thoroughly for the rest of the class. A foot on the comparative anatomical features of the undead is due next class. You can compare your observations with the diagrams of ghouls, ghasts, and deathly hallows in your text for the essay, but focus mostly on your observations of Radu and Shito," he finished, putting his feet up on his desk and settling back. "Feel free to ask any questions if you're confused about the assignment, of course. Have fun!"

[OOC: Chat with, examine or grope the samples in the threads below, or chat with Stein. Or feel free to make your own threads!]

Curtain Call [Backdated to yesterday]  
[Radu stands on a windswept pier, facing off against a blond Methuselah boy who looks no older than twelve. Radu's face is calm and determined, as is the other boy. Around them is chaos. Tres and Petros are fighting a legion of horrific undead monsters, their eyes sewn shut and fangs in their mouths. Despite the chaos around them, Radu and Ion have eyes only for each other.

Ion speaks quietly.]
Since when... since when did you begin to hate me, Radu?

[Radu's tone is lazy and confident, a quiet smirk curving his features, but he can't look at Ion's face directly, his eyes cutting away] Since we were young, Ion. It's always been like this.

[One might expect Ion to be angry, but he smiles] You lie. Even if the world becomes your enemy, I'll still stay by your side, Radu. [Ion draws a sword, determination in his eyes] I'm now here to save you.

[Radu says nothing, anger surging in his face to replace the misery that had flickered in his eyes for just one moment. He calls a fireball to his palm and the two boys attack one another. Ion shouts Radu's name as they begin to duel.]

Empress' pet! [Radu sneers at Ion. He slams a fireball into Ion's shoulder and the boy screams as he holds it there] You high-born brat! Your very existence is an eyesore to me. That's why I must kill you.

[Ion takes Radu's hand] Radu, stop lying to me. We've been friends for so many years. Other people may believe you, but you can't fool me.

Fool you? You really think I'm lying? I hate you, you're merely a nuisance to me, that's all there is to it.

[Ion shouts, in agony] NO! YOU'RE LYING AGAIN! If you think I'm just a nuisance, why did you go to the trouble of getting the Terran to kill me instead? Why didn't you just kill me yourself? It's because you can't bear to kill your friend, isnt it, Radu!?

[Radu pauses, shocked realization coming over his face.]

Think about it, Radu! It's not too late. We can still be friends again. Let's stop the Iblis together. Radu, I'm begging you, I don't want to fight you anymore.

[Radu bows his head, silent for a long time] Turn back? Even if I wanted to...I can't just die here, Ion! The city will be buried under sand, soon. I...It's far too late for me to turn back now!

[Ion screams, tears in his eyes] YOU IDIOT!

[And then he punches a fist through Radu's chest. Really.] Your heart...is in my hand, Radu. Stop... stop Iblis!

[Radu smiles] Too bad. I'm not the one who planned this. Someone else is controlling Iblis, and I can't stop it. Sorry, my friend.

[Ion withdraws his hand from Radu's chest. He looks out to the ocean, where the sun is beginning to rise] Look, Radu... the sea. It's so blue. Look! Your hair, under the sun! It's so bright.

[A look of horror crosses Radu's face] Please escape, Ion! RUN!

[Both vampires begin to blister and burn as the sun touches them. They reach for one another, blistered hands clinging.]

[Radu whispers]
Ion...We'll be together forever, my friend.

[Then Radu's body bucks, torn in half and destroyed by huge bullets from Tres and Petros' weapon, which strike him at the same moment. His sundered corpse falls into the sea, and Tres and Petros quickly wrap Ion in a cloak to protect him from the sun's rays and bear him away to safety. The last words captured by the video are Tres':]

Termination of Radu Barvon confirmed.

[[OOC: Radu won't be replying to this post, obviously, because he's dead. Sorry~ He'll be back, don't worry. And more sexy than ever.]]

[Open RL for Ghost Ship Denizens]  
The first day on the ship went uneventfully. Radu was stuck in his stateroom and some of the inner halls below, and spent most of the day asleep. But when night falls, the creatures of the night emerge, and that includes vampires.

It also includes ghosts.

Radu prowled the decks, emerging onto the upper deck beside the pool, looking nervously over his shoulder as he heard yet another moan and rattle of chains.

It sounded like the sounds of those undead zombie vampires Dietrich had shown him only yesterday, and his blood ran chill through his veins at the thought.

With slightly shaking hands, he lit up a cigarette and leaned against the rail, looking out over the water and then up at the stars, trying to figure out what the hell was going on. Hopefully at least in the open he was safe from whatever monsters were out there, and it would give him enough space to use his flame if necessary.

Kicking off the Iblis Arc Canon Move  
[Failed private]

We passed the border into Carthage this evening. I had heard it was a beautiful city, but the descriptions didn't do it justice. The desert beyond its borders is vast and was tiresome to cross, but the city itself is strong and vibrant, though of course it doesn't hold a candle to the Capital.

Though I feel a bit homesick, I'm looking forward to exploring it more.

I hear there is to be a party at the Embassy tomorrow night. Ion is resting now, but I'll tell him of it. It should be a good opportunity for us.
