ok, so a quick story i wrote when i was bored in class, took me like 20 minutes.
let me know your input,Raug' Moss and Drefan Rahl are names i threw in cause they fit, they both belong to Terry Goodkind.
The year is 1995, our story today takes place in a small snowy village buried deep in the northern regions of Canada, where a sect of healers has
it's head priest and a few select others to train and prepare their healers. the Raug' Moss, known worldwide as the best healers around. their
mastery of herbs and their many uses is merely the most basic form of their healing abilities.Today though one young priest will find out he is to be
the recipient of a very special spirit, one meant to help him be the most successful healer ever.
The Raug' Moss have three main ways to heal people who come seeking their aide. The first and most widely used is the concoction of tinctures to help
with small fevers and many other illnesses caused by herbs or poisons.the second form in which they heal people with, is the manipulation of the
aura's that co-ordinate the body. sometimes an illness or poison can have an effect that causes brain signals to become confused and hay wired, the
aura's can help to aide this malady fairly easy, but sometimes the confusion is too much for the aura's alone to handle. in this case a properly
trained Raug' Moss can use his one aura to aid the struggling aura to put things back together right.
the third way to heal is for drastic measures only, and is usually used in conjunction with herbs and aura treatments. this form of healing calls on
the aid of a water or wind spirit infused within the Raug' Moss's body and uses it to channel a persons pain and suffering into themselves and after
neutralizing the pain they can begin the complicated process of healing almost any wound you could think of. the more serious the wound though, the
more danger the Raug' Moss is in of dying himself. that being said the Raug' Moss high priest and 4 of his best healers were in a deep conversation
discussing this very issue. this is where our story begins.
Drefan Rahl sat at the head of a long wooden table listening to his healers discuss the issue of so many dead priests, none mis-using their abilities
but merely over-estimating their abilities.He himself had an idea to try and help give these priests a boost in their ability but it was very very
risky, was contemplating how to work a fusion of both type of spirits into one healer when the door burst open and a young girl that could have been
no more than 15 years old stumbled in "please help" she mumbled barely coherent.
he knew just from the muscle contractions happening all over her body she was in labor, her belly occasionally flexing in a rough fashion. he was by
her side quickly, and before the other priests knew what to think they were having orders yelled at them. two ran off to gather the supplies for an
emergency birthing while the other two helped Drefan move the young girl to the table. the two other Raug' Moss quickly returned with all the
supplies needed and settled in for what would be the most influential labor of their lifetime.
Many hours later in the early hours of the morning a cry burst forth from the meeting house where a new-born life had come into the world.
"His name. . .is to be Sekkai. . . Sekkai Shiryou." the young girls last words were before she fell lifeless into the arms of the head priest.
Drefan gently collected the new life in his arms, the boy had the most brilliant blonde hair. Drefan set a determined look upon his face. "i'm
taking this boy." he said to his chief adviser and fellow Raug' Moss."And i'm going to turn him into the most successful Raug' Moss healer ever
to live since the times of Alric." he said as he turned around and stepped into his room to bath the newborn child and settle it in for the night.
5 years later
"Sekkai!!!! you musn't be out at this time! the storm is far too cold for you to be out in!! you can't fall ill today of all days!!!" screamed the
head priests chief advisor as he chased after a 5 year old Sekkai, through one of the most brutally cold snowstorms to hit the land since that one
that night so many years ago. "HA! Fat chance old man! I love this kind of weather! And you know I don't get sick nearly as easily as you old farts
do!" the young Sekkai said over his shoulder as he continued to run at a steady pace towards his home. he soon arrived and dashed inside slamming the
door shut in the very red face of the portly advisor. Sekkai turned around and was about to run into his room when he ran head-first into his father.
Drefan Rahl, High Priest of the Raug' Moss a giant of a man standing well over six feet tall greatly muscled, Drefan Was a Rahl that was easy enough
to see in his features. bright blonde hair, Deep blue eyes that had a sort of Raptor gaze that made it seem as though he was looking right into your
very soul. Drefan stood there with a stern look upon his face as he appraised his son." Sekkai, what were you doing out in the storm? Today is one of
the most important days for you! we can't afford to have you become ill and disrupt the passage of the spirits into your body." Drefan softened his
features though and kneeled down to be eye level with his son." Did you at least give alexander a bit of a work-out?" he said as a grin broke out
onto his face."Of course! that fat old man can't keep up with me!" Sekkai said with a big cheesy grin on his face as he looked up at his dad, who
reached his hand over and mussed his son's hair."Well Sekkai we still need you to be ready for the ceremony tonight, so go make sure your ready."
Sekkai nodded once and dashed off towards his room, but stopped with his hand on the door as his father's booming voice made him look back." And
Sekkai, son, just know i couldn't be more proud of you, just five years old and already obtaining your spirit. I was near to 20 when i obtained mine,
your all i could have asked for and more." Sekkai nodded once and disappeared into his room, preparing for the ceremony that would make him a full
fledged Raug' Moss, Finally he could help with the more serious operations, help people with his spirit!
