The Castle town of Linness II

A castle town in the middle of nowhere, it's well fortified against invasions.

Meta shrugs.

How should I know?
Keledrath

Dark floats towards Kin. She steps back.
What do you want?
Hold still.
Metakirb

What are you doing?
Keledrath

I'm going to check these memories. Somehow she has mine, and I intend to find out how.
Dark stops as the crystal chakram flashes into existence between them.
No.
Metakirb

If she doesn't want you to there's not much you can do about it Dark.
Keledrath

Fine. But I don't like the idea of Draco picking around my memories. Especially after he's been dead all these years.
Dark fades out, and Kin looks quizzically at Meta.
Who's Draco?
Metakirb

Really? The guy you were lecturing me about how he was in agony over what he'd done and how me killing him was an act of friendship.
Keledrath

Names are foggy. I couldn't name the human, or the other Dracorion. So, what does he have to do with me?
Metakirb

I think he created you.
Keledrath

Why? If he had that capability, why make me? Why not bring back your wife?
Metakirb

Because he couldn't. He died before she did.
Keledrath

So? I was created after they both died, and I have memories from her, I think. And from Merra. How did he give these to me?
Metakirb

You seem to forget I keep telling you that I don't know.
Keledrath

Still, you knew him. I thought maybe you could at least offer an idea.
Metakirb

He shrugs.
Keledrath

You really aren't very helpful, you know that, right?
Metakirb

I can't give you all the answers, you know?
Keledrath

I guess. I just figured he'd have sent me to someone who wasn't clueless.
Metakirb

He gives her a quick glare before walking off.
Keledrath

She runs after him.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean it like that!
Metakirb

I know.

She'll notice he's grinning.

I understand it's all confusing to you.
Keledrath

pcolor=darkblue]You can say that again. The memories are all fighting for my attention. That's what I was really doing when you saw me with my weapons. I was watching them.[/color]
Metakirb

Maybe you should forget the other memories, make your own.
Keledrath

No. I can tell from what I've seen that they're precious. I can still make my own memories, but I need to come to an agreement with the ones that aren't mine.
Metakirb

A memory that's precious to another doesn't have to mean something to you. If you want to cling to them you can, but I don't think you should.
Keledrath

There's something else...some of them always get louder when you're around. I think it might be from Serra and Merra.
Metakirb

I see...
Keledrath

Those memories are different too...There's pain in them, but most of the pain isn't part of the actual memory, kind of like my memories of that human had the shadow around them.
Metakirb

Well I can't really do much about that.
Keledrath

I know. It's just strange.
Metakirb

I know.
Keledrath

She smiles a little.
So we're good?
Metakirb

I wasn't aware we weren't.
Keledrath

I suppose it is a silly thing to ask someone with ice powers.
Metakirb

[color-silver]Maybe. Anything you want to do now?[/color]
Keledrath

Not really sure. Do you know of anything going on?
Metakirb

He shakes his head.

This place is quiet.
Keledrath

I guess it's the nature of some thing. Safe, but quiet and dull.
Metakirb

He nods.
Keledrath

Do you know if anything is going on somewhere else?
Metakirb

He shakes his head.
Keledrath

Oh well. I guess we'll have to wait for excitement to find its way through the stones.
Metakirb

He nods.
Keledrath

Kin heads off to find a fairly isolated area to meditate again.
Metakirb

Meta watches her.
Keledrath

She sits cross legged and lifts off the ground, eyes closed. She'll be like that for a while.
Metakirb

Meta keeps watching her, deep in thought about many things.
Keledrath

It is several hours before she awakens. When she does, her eyes snap open and the question comes rapidly.
What are the corolox?
Metakirb

Pure elemental creatures, you've met two already, the fire one and the shadow one.
Keledrath

The memories keep mentioning them. It's like an identity they've taken.
Metakirb

They're tied to our kind, but they're about as endangered as we are.
Keledrath

Alright. Is there a corolox of our kind?
Metakirb

He nods.

Draco. but he's unique. The only non elemental corolox.
Keledrath

Then it seems he's less dead than you thought. That's the identity they've taken. He lives on as the memories of our people.
Metakirb

I'm aware of that, that's mostly how he was created in the first place.
Keledrath

That's why I can't destroy them. If we can find a vessel for the memories, they can be saved. For now, I'm the vessel.
Metakirb

So you intend to bring him back?
Keledrath

Perhaps. But the vessel doesn't have to be living. It is possible to record memories by magic, isn't it?
Metakirb

Probably.
Keledrath

Then that's another possibility. And probably more ethical than displacing another living being.
Metakirb

I guess.
Keledrath

She thinks for a moment.
I suppose technology is an alternative. An artifically constructed body, with the memories used to run it...
Metakirb

Why are you so obsessed over this?
Keledrath

Not obsessed. Just wanting to repay what is owed. Draco created me, I owe it to him to preserve those memories.
Metakirb

Those are the memories of others. Do you intend to preserve the memories of every being who dies?
Keledrath

No. Only those whose deaths let me live. The memories aren't just the memories of our race. They're Draco's memories of those memories. I think that's why some of them have emotions that don't fit the memory itself.
Metakirb

If you insist.
Keledrath

I do. And thank you for not arguing it.
Metakirb

I thought I did argue.

He smiles.

So how are you gonna do it? Our kind isn't the most magically capable.
Keledrath

I'm going to need help, of course. Anyone friendly who happens to be skilled in magic or tech?
Metakirb

He nods.
Keledrath

Really? Who?
Metakirb

A girl named Estran. She's incredible. Extraordinarily talented young mage.
Keledrath

I can see a few memories of her.
She grins
She married that arrogant young human with a sword, didn't she?
Metakirb

He nods.

Shame really.
Keledrath

Where do they live?
Metakirb

I'll ask End to take you later.
Keledrath

Thanks.
Metakirb

You're welcome.
Keledrath

Kin stands up.
So, what do you want to do while we wait?
Metakirb

He shrugs.
Keledrath

What do you normally do?
Metakirb

For the last few years, not much.
Keledrath

Oh, right, sorry, forgot about that. Well, you look in pretty good shape for someone who's been dead several years.
Metakirb

Owed to the guy whose body i was stuck in i guess.
Keledrath

Kin seems to get an idea
Where did you get your new body?
Metakirb

Endlox spent a year or two forming it.
Keledrath

Well, if all else fails, we could ask him really nicely.
Metakirb

Don't think so.
Keledrath

So, what ia his story?
Metakirb

End's? He's a corolox, probably the strongest of the ones left.
Keledrath

It's just that every time I see him, or the dark one, they make my skin crawl.
Metakirb

We used to be at war with them.
Keledrath

That would explain it. So what changd that?
Metakirb

I'm not entirely sure overall.
Keledrath

So he just decided to stop trying to kill us and spend two years putting you back together? How mny of them were left then?
Metakirb

After our war somewhere under twenty, now, Maybe three?
Keledrath

And how many of us?
Metakirb

Six.
Keledrath

You, me, Merra...
