Summary

There are tales of them. 'The Five' Ancient warriors chosen to defend the planet from disaster. We're taught the lessons in school, hundreds of years ago there was an ancient evil known as The Myuat who descended upon our planet with the intent to wipe out everything....


We believed that they would, they were much stronger than humans. Smarter than humans. More determined that humans. At least that's what we believed initially and then something....happened.
A group of 5 strangers from different walks of life were all connected together.

One from the Sands that scorched like the sun,

One from the Dark where the light cannot run,

One from the Seas that crash like a storm ,

One from the Skies back to the air where the soul is born,

One from the Earth straight from the Mother's grasp,

One from the Light where the darkness can never last,

Together these strangers gathered together and pushed away the Myuat. Our world was saved, and in that dark time we as a race realized something.
They weren't stronger than us.
They weren't smarter than us.
They weren't better than us, but they were United.
For so long humanity fought against itself. Waged civil wars. Not once had Earth ever been United. But ' The Five' proved that there was hope. Hope for us to be something more, something more fierce than those that wished us harm.
If we put our minds to it, we could be unstoppable.
If only our hearts could have remained...United.

Klause

 

Klaus was sat in his office in the Albon Chateau, his icy blue eyes piercing the files that lay before him. The files in front of him were the stock of the Zwei Soleils Corporation, the name of his Fathers business. He adjusted the square glasses on his nose and compared them to multiple other corporations, too numerous to count. "Hm. Stock stays above all the rest. As expected of my father" He said to himself. There was a knock at the mahogany door that exited into the hallway. "You may enter," He said, he combination of French and German accent coming through, like in every sentence he spoke.

An elderly man came through, in a black suit alike to his own. A white tie lay around his neck, in contrast to Klaus' blue. "Ah, Xander. I trust it that you have something for me? is it that application I sent, perhaps?" Klaus inquired. Xander bowed his right arm to his stomach and his left behind his back. "Yes, Lord Klaus. I have it right here". Xander came over to the desk and took his left hand from behind his back, revealing an envelope. He placed it next to the pile of documents. "There you go, my Lord. Please, do read at your leisure" Xander said, bowing again.

"There is no need for formalities when it only me in your presence, Xander. You've done more than enough for me to allow some leniency" Klaus smiled. Xander had been more of a father-figure to him than his actual father, mainly because his father, Louis Albon, had been on business trips for a majority of his life, only being able to see him in person only 3-4 times a month, if he was lucky. His Mother, Celestia (usually shortened to Celeste) Albon (formally Brandt, before her marriage), had many places to go as well, what with her being from a German Family of musicians. though she returned on a daily basis, on most days. Because of this, Klaus was very much attached to Xander in that respite. "Of course, Lord-er... Klaus" he fumbled.

Klaus took the envelope from the pile, setting aside his study work. He peeled open the envelope with immaculate perfection, befitting of the way he was raised. He read through the letter with efficiency in mind, yet at the same time, he had butterflies in his stomach. He didn't know if he would be accepted or not, but knowing his stature, he would be, most likely. A lot of academies and educational institutions have wanted him as a student in the past, usually of high esteem. However, he always turned them down, he preferred to stay home-tutored, so he could be more efficient with his learning, and so he didn't stick out like a sore thumb amongst the crowds. He always hated crowds, which always formed around him if he wasn't disguised, in some way. In the end, he decided to just shut himself within the Albon Chateau, and the land it dominated.

"Congratulations human, you've been accepted into the School of The Five! Your understanding of the deeper calling of Unity has impressed us here at the Academy".

He was excited, but at the same time, confused. He was excited, and could barely contain himself, but there was something that tipped him off that something was strange. "Human". Was it to say that the men and women who ran the academy were not human? who knew. "hmhm. As expected of one of the Albon blood, Klaus" Xander chuckled. Klaus then noticed he had a goofy and wide grin on his face, going back to his plain expression, the one he usually wore. "But of course, Xander. I am an Albon, after all. I knew I would make it in. There's no way they'd NOT accept an Albon!" Klaus said in an excited manner. Klaus usually used this facade of a spoiled, perfectionist, and, overall, highly punchable brat. He wanted to give what they expected, after all. He was taught from a young age not to disappoint expectations, after all. "I see, Klaus! well, I suppose this would call a celebration? or would you rather keep this quiet as to not upset Lady Elise?" Xander asked. Elise was Klaus' younger sister, although not much younger. She would commonly get jealous of Klaus, sometimes for something as simple as getting one more tiny piece of food, in comparison. Unlike Klaus, her bratty persona was REAL. It did annoy Klaus, to an extent, but he could understand. "Keep it between us, you know how Elise gets" He replied, putting the envelope to a side. 

"Of course, Klaus. One more thing. Your Swordfighting Instructor will be here in about 20 minutes, she is most exhilarated to have a proper sparring session". Klaus' Swordfighting Instructor, Karla, was an upbeat type of girl. She specialised in Japanese weapons like the Katana, odachi and such, but she was also very experienced in Longswords and Rapiers, what Klaus seemed to have a gift for. "If we're having a true sparring session, prepare my gift from Father, the Albonsword". Xander nodded in understanding, taking his leave, going back into a more disciplined and formal stance, leaving the room in a perfect manner. "Yes! I made it in. Let's hope I needn't have to... no, I'll have to keep my facade going. There's no reason to other than to not disappoint others but..." Klaus said to himself. He knew his facade must continue, even if people gave him stares or abhorrent comments. It didn't matter to him, he was used to it.

There was another knock at the door.

"Dear, could I come in?" said a woman's voice. It was his mother, Celeste Brandt, his mother. "Yes mother, come on in". As he finished, she walked into the room. She was dressed in many frilled clothes and she shared his pale white skin. Her eyes, naturally green, were red by use of contact lenses. Her hair black, loose and charming. "Diligently working, I presume? You're just like your father" she said.

"Sort of. Xander interrupted a bit of studying earlier, but he had good reason to" Klaus responded. Celeste's eyes quickly focused on his. "Good reason? what kind of reason? is it to do with those files?" she asked.

"No, more a letter I received, not much to worry about, for now".

"Nothing to worry about? then why was it okay for Xander to interrupt, in your own words, 'for good reason'?". His mother had caught on to his slight bending of the truth.

"Klaus, are you being perfectly upfront with me?" She asked her gloved hands on her hips.

"Yes, mother" He lied.

"Oh really? then what's this?" she reached for the envelope.

"...". Celeste was dead silent, reading the letter. She displayed a large ray of emotions.

"I see. I can understand why now. It would've gotten slightly out of hand" She said. Klaus let out a sigh of relief. "Anyway, I wished to ask you a question".

"Ah, what is it, Mother?" Klaus asked.

"After your Swordfighting session with Karla, do you want to play some music with me? I wish to teach you a melody, doubly so now I've seen the letter" she said.

"Of course, Mother. Why wouldn't I? after I've finished I'll come find you in the living area". Klaus paused for a minute. "Oh, and Mother. Don't tell Elise. Tell Father if you wish, but don't tell Elise. I would prefer it not spoken to her about. "I see. I know you may not like your sister that much but you really shouldn't try and hide things from her. It'll just make it worse when she finds out".

"I'll take my chances, Mother. Who knows, she might change slightly after this" He said, amused at the idea of Elise becoming more dignified and less bratty. "You can hope," She said, leaving the room. A thought suddenly sprung into his mind. 

"I'll have to get ready!" He shouted in a bit of shock as he prepared some things for his first day. "Urgh! I'll have to call it all off for today... unless I get this done now then do all my other things. Yes, that should work" He thought. He took a briefcase from one of the wardrobes, where it was lying on the floor, and put it on his desk. He puts everything he needed inside, from about 10 different varieties of pens and pencil to electronics like hi business phone and his laptop. Klaus put a block of pristine wood in there too, where, inside, would be his Albonsword. "I'll have to get it later. I'll get some food on the way out. Should be easy enough". He left the study and went into the hallway, where he met Xander. "Ah, My Lord Klaus. I suppose you are in need of things for your first day?" Xander said, taking a box and a sword. "It may not be your Albonsword, but it is your training Longsword. This should do for now if you even will have need of it".


"Thank you, Xander. How did you know to do this?" He asked.

"To put it simply, I knew you would require something after our exchange of the letter, and also, I heard you from downstairs, so I knew that I was indeed correct. The chefs have made you a lunch for the day. Do enjoy". Xander handed them both to him and Klaus put them quickly inside his briefcase. "Now then, I should have just about enough time for what I have planned". Xander simply smiled. "Don't worry, My Lord, I live to serve".

"Alright... off to practice, then off to school".
