    Nouvel Ordre De Phoenix (GW1)

    Nouvel Ordre De Phoenix (GW1)


    Talya Sandari & Bartholos


    Talya looked up from the table in the war room inside Nouvel Ordre De Phoenix, as Bartholos entered. She loved the way he looked in his armor as he strode toward the table with purpose. But today was not a social call and the two warriors kept their private life as private as possible. Although it was no secret that the two had been together for some time, one did not crack jokes about the two sharing a bed. When it came to their profession, the two warriors were very serious when in mixed company. Often times lives depended upon their actions and they could ill afford to be caught flirting, so they kept that to a minimum when around others. Only on rare occasions would the two feel comfortable enough in certain parties to allow their affections for each other to be shown.

    "Good morning Bartholos. What is it that I can do for the leader of the Shining Blade this morning?"

    Alone in the room together, Bartholos could take Talya's comment anyway he chose. A smile touched his lips before a more serious demeanor took control.

    "Talya, I have need of your guild's help. Reports of Mantle activity have increased as far reaching as the Shiver Peaks. My army is stretched thin and I need at least one extra scout if you can spare for a mission."

    "The Shiver Peaks?" Talya questioned.

    "At least 4 of our guild are headed to Sorrow's Furnace as we speak. If I can get word to them, perhaps they can do some additional investigating."

    "That will help, but it doesn't alleviate my immediate need for someone in Maguuma Jungle."

    Talya stood from the table and walked the length of the room before turning back to Bartholos. Although Mara had been born in the Dalada Uplands, the Maguuma Jungle was like a second home, but she was with Tallos and no doubt Sonja and Hobarrt right now in Sorrow's Furnace. For stealth, their best bet would have been Tora, who unfortunately was with Hai and Anton in Cantha on another important mission. Talya let out a frustrated sigh, why was it that she was left here to have to maintain the guild while everyone else was out on missions. She would have bone to pick with Rafarin when he returned.

    "Kiara, I can spare her. She's not familiar with the Maguuma Jungle, but if she is going with a group of the Shining Blade, she'll be fine. She's a good Ranger and if you're needing someone for scouting and some abilities in stealth, she'll get the job done."

    Bartholos seemed relieved as well as a little pleased. The Mantle were up to something, and he was determined to get to the bottom of it and stop it before it spelled disaster. Taking advantage of the lack of company, Bartholos closed the distance between him and Talya, pulling her close he smiled and whispered.

    "I owe you, but I imagine you'll collect on that debt later."

    Talya laughed.

    "Likely the butt of my sword to your skull for leaving on this mission without me, but I think we may come to an amiable solution."

    " Balthazar guide your sword Bartholos." She whispered as they shared a fleeting moment together.

    Kiara Danae


    Once Bartholos left, Talya headed to Kiara's room. She had no doubt that the young ranger would be thrilled, but she had serious doubts her older sister would feel the same. She knocked on the door to Kiara's room before entering.

    "Pack your bags kid, the Shining Blade has need for a scout."

    "Seriously!" Kiara responded with enthusiasm.

    Talya laughed.

    "Seriously kid. Make sure you pack all the provisions you need and come see me before you leave."

    Kiara nearly knocked Talya over giving her an enthusiastic embrace. Talya just shook her head and laughed while Kiara scrambled to pack her things.

    Peace is a lie
    There is only passion
    Through passion I gain strength
    Through strength I gain power
    Through power I gain victory
    Through victory my chains are broken
    The Force shall set me free

    Talya Sandari & Ariella Danae



    Kiara had stopped by just before she was ready to leave. Being the youngest of their guild at 17, she was certainly not the first to go into a situation that young. But she was looked at with as much a need to protect and keep safe as was Mara. The monk was more due to her purity and innocence in general, Kiara's was her youth, relative inexperience in battle and her innocence as well. Ariella would likely not be happy with Talya for sending her out, but the warrior didn't do so with a flippant manner. It was something she had to give serious consideration too before she sent her out.

    Talya had sent the young ranger on a quick mission of her own, before she went to join the Shining Blade. She couldn't help but feel a bit mischievous with whom she had requested to deliver the message. Talya knew that Mara was smitten with Kimmes and she and Sonja had often teased poor Mara about it. It was too hard to resist when she spent so much time in the Hall of Monuments where Kimmes often spent his time recording the deeds of heroes. He just happened to be away from the Hall and Talya hoped he would deliver the message for her on Mara's behalf.

    He seemed to be smitten with the young monk himself, because the other women in the guild had caught him gazing at the young monk for longer moments than normal, on a few occasions. Word had been received that her message from Kiara had been delivered and accepted. Kimmes would be headed to the War Camp and Kiara was on her way to the Maguuma Jungle. Talya was stuck at the guild hall and wishing like anything she could be joining Bartholos in his mission.

    It would be several weeks before Talya received word from a messenger that Kiara was missing. With the White Mantle involved, fear of their youngest guild member being sacrificed put a deep fear in her she had never felt before. Telling Ariella had proven to be difficult since she had been the one to send the Paragon's sister out on the mission. They had little time to waste a lot of ground to cover, but Talya would not refuse Ariella from coming along. The two were packed and on the road in a matter of hours, neither seasoned veteran would take much rest until they met up with the Shining Blade.
