[Thread Power Level = 4,500 PL][Helia Power Level = 1,125 PL] After the Debacle with the Namekian, and that white haired saiyan, Xanara decided it would be best to stay where she was. After all, she had done nothing wrong. And she was going to prove that namekian wrong, and then laugh in his face. She let out a sigh and headed outside, accompanied by her daughter. Once outside Xanara looked to her daughter and smiled.
"Right Helia, if you will, lets focus our magic and see if we can get one of those pesky Demon Clansmen to find us, shall we?" Asked Xanara.
Helia frowned. "Mom this is only going to get us in trouble." she said.
"Hush child. Don't sass your mother. Now, release your power!"
Both Xanara and Helia's auras appeared, before trippling in size. Their Demonic will caused their energies to jump several levels, but not enough to actually be that much of a threat to anyone.
"How long do we have to keep this up?" Asked Helia, whose purple aura whipped about her. "Until either someone shows up, or an hour passes." said Xanara, which caused Helia to groan. This was a bad idea.
x3 Demonic Will activated on both Xanara and Helia.

Part of Shemha’s duties while on planet Namek was to make sure its residents were safe. Any potential threat needed to be investigated for the safety of all. With Habana’s mission to strengthen relations between the Empire and their green allies, the Majin did not take her role hear lightly. Once already she had intercepted signatures in order to guarantee they were not a threat. Thankfully, those alongside her hybrid friend Marcel were nothing to worry about.
In the sky, blue fields stretched out below her as she made her way back towards the Enigma, her own personal vessel. Intent on getting in a training session before the day ended, two sudden beeps of the scouter attached to her head indicated she wouldn’t be doing so just yet. Numbers rolled across the screen before coming to stop at 13,500 and 3,375 respectively. Weaker than her for sure, but nothing to be ignored. With a thought she changed her trajectory and headed for the source of the readings.
As she drew closer, two flaring auras came into view. Brow ached slightly as to what they might be in response too, Shemha doubled her efforts to close the remaining distance. In moment she was on top of them, red body dropping to the ground several yards away from the pair of females. Appearance wise…she wasn’t exactly sure what they were. Definitely not Namekian, Saiyan or Human, Shemha wondered what it was she had happened across.
”Pardon me, but are you two in some sort of distress?” Shemha asked, not thinking the duo a threat and choosing to be polite unless given a reason not to be. Her own strength suppressed by her weights she felt confident enough about being able to protect herself if she needed.
Of all the things in the universe that could have arrived, a Majin was not something Xanara had been expecting. Xanara was so caught off guard her aura completely vanished. As the Majin spoke Xaanra cleared her throat, before responding. "Oh no nothing is the matter." She said. "I came to this planet to learn magic from the various Namekian villages here. As of now I"m trying to fish out a Demon Clan member. I'd rather meet them before I meet the Dragon Clan, as I feel they will treat me better." She bowed her head. "I am Xanara Redhive, and this." She motioned to the half Human, half Spider woman standing besides her. "Is my Daughter, Helia."
Helia smiled at Shemha, offering a nod of her head. "Always nice to see a friendly face." She said softly. She drew nearer to Shemha, her spider legs thumping on the ground as she did so. "Though I've never seen a majin like you before." She said. " So well defined..."
Xanara made a face before shaking her head. " You aren't going to tell use to get out are you? We ran into a Warrior clan namekian yesterday who had a terrible set of manners, and demanded we leave."
Demon Clan? Unfamiliar with Namek for the most part, despite her two visits here, Shemha was a little unsure what this woman meant. In her time she had known a number of demons, but never any that had anything to do with Namekians. Questions for later she decided, she wasn’t so rude as to start drilling someone she just met with questions. So instead she smiled, dark eyes shifting from one female to the other.
Both of them were different than the general populace of the planet, the horns atop Xanara’s head indicating she might be a demon herself and Helia…Shemha just wasn’t sure. Never having seen a creature like the half spider female, the Majin made sure to keep a warm smile on her face. Whatever she was, the girl came off as polite enough.
”Leave? No, I have no reason to ask you to leave. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Shemha.” She replied with a low bow to the two females, head all the way down to her waist before she finished the gesture. After she held the pose for a moment she rose back up to her full height, eyes shifting between the two of them once more.
”May I ask why this Namekian requested that you leave?” Shemha asked. In her experience the people of Namek were welcoming to most unless they threatened them in some way. From what she had seen so far, these two were doing no such thing.

"Thats good." Said Xanara, in response to Shemha. "Because even if you had asked we wouldn't of left. It would take many weeks to gather the ingredients for another portal spell, let alone get it ready."
Helia nodded to Xanara and quickly moved about Shemha, looking her up and down. "I love your hair." She commented. "It reminds me of cotton candy."
Xanara rolled her eyes at Helia before focusing back on Shemha. "I am trying to learn magic from both Dragon and Demon Clan. But apparently the Demon Clan is bad for whatever reason. He told us to leave, and then when we didn't well, I had to flag down a saiyan for help." She frowned. "At least the saiyan was nice. Had far better manners than The Namekian did that's for sure."
Helia came back to her mother's side and whispered to her before she sighed. "I suppose if you must..." Xanara Muttered.
Helia smiled then came back over to Shemha. She held out her hands and with a "POOF!" there was a double dozen box of chocolates in Helia's hands. " Here you can have these." She said. "Its from my mothers chocolate shop back on earth."
Shemha had told herself that she didn’t want to ask too many questions of these two, but the more Xanara spoke, the more curious the Majin found herself. Equally curious the girl’s daughter, who appeared to love the long tendril that was Shemha’s hair whispered something in secret to her mother. Had these two given off more negative vibes, she might be suspicious. Considering all the spider woman had done was compliment her thus far, she felt confident it was nothing malicious.
Empty hand held out as Helia came closer, the Majin didn’t understand all the way up to the moment the boxed chocolates appeared. Despite herself, Shemha jumped at the materialization. For candy to suddenly appear in the female’s hand was one of the last things she expected. How had she done that?
”Thank you…although I don’t believe I have done anything to deserve such a gift…” Shemha stated as she tried to recover from the small moment of shock. Smile spread back across her face, she took the chocolates and tucked them under her arm.
”You have…a shop on Earth then? Does this portal you speak up have anything to do with you being here instead of there? Forgive my ignorance, but I am not familiar with such magicks despite the magical origin of my species.” Shemha admitted. In some way she understood how to utilize the latent magical energy that resided within her, but as far as translating it into direct techniques, she was far from knowledgeable. However, if these two understood more about magic than she, this encounter might prove immensely valuable to the ever evolving fighter.

"Don't think too much of it." Said Xanara. "Helia here believes that giving away free chocolate is a good way to advertise, where as I disagree. Ragardless its yours to keep. If memory serves correctly its got a blue ribbon, meaning they are mostly bonbons. Carmel, Cherry, and perhaps one or two Dinosaur Meat Bonbons."
Helia giggled towards Her mother then looked back to shemha. "Dinosaur meat is the best one." She whispered. "Its sweet and savory, and dinosaur meat is delicious."
Shemha asked her question and Xanara was happy to answer. "Exactly. We casted a spell to create a portal back on earth, that would lead us here. So here we are." She nodded. "Though I'll admit its odd seeing a majin not understand magic." She pointed her staff at the bubblegum woman. "Its a real shame when someone doesn't understand their heritage. In fact, given your species you should be able to do exactly what Helia did. Conjuring items. Its very, very easy, even a child could do it."
Helia nodded. "Here I'll teach you real quick." She came to Shemha's side. "Just hold out your hands like this." She held out her hands as if asking for something. "Imagine what you want, and it should come to you! Like this!"
The spider woman shut her eyes tight before "POOF!" A small red Dodgeball appeared in her hands. " See? Easy! Just gotta focus on what you want and it will come right to you!"
Dinosaur meat and chocolate? Admittedly the combination was something the Majin never tasted, however, until recently she hadn’t tried gummy snacks either and those turned out to be incredibly delicious. The same went for a number of alcohols so for now, she would take the girls word for it. When she got back to her ship and sampled the chocolates she could form a true opinion.
As Xanara confirmed the Majin’s suspicions about what it was the two women were doing on Namek, Shemha felt a little embarrassed that this materialization trick was considered a novice thing and still far beyond her. Aware her body possessed a magical origin, Shemha hadn’t actually explored it that much. She was capable of pulling on magical reserves to enhance her power for a short time and better at shifting her body to form weapons when need be, but beyond that she knew nothing of what potential she might have.
Watching Helia’s little demonstration of the “simple” act of materializing something, the half spider female sure did make it look easy. With a small nod Shemha moved to copy the motion, imagining a red rubber sphere much like the on Helia held. She focused and a moment later…nothing. With a small shrug she looked between the two females.
”Perhaps this magic is something I should spend more time exploring, no?” Shemha remarked, clearly embarrassed even more when she could not do it after a demonstration. Still wearing a smile though, she pepped back up.
”Is there anything I can do to assist your relations with the Clans? My allies and I are friends of the Namekians so perhaps I could speak to them for you?” Shemha said with a smile, thinking it was the least she could do for the unnecessary, but appreciated gift.

"You most definitely should." said Helia. "It makes life ever so convenient. Not to mention if your in a pinch you can use it to fight, or even get out of a fight. Mom can even make shields with it!"
Xanara nodded. " That I can." She said. "Even in my age, I keep up with my magical studies. Hence the field trip here."
Xanara turned from the two listened to Shemha's offer before a sly smile spread on her lips. "Well, If you could find us someone of the demon clan that would be greatly appreciated. After all its the reason we came here." She fully turned back towards the Majin. "Though Perhaps I can help you more than you can help me. How would you like me to teach you some magic before you go? I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in no time."
Helia smiled wide, getting just a tad bit excited. "Ohhh that would be fun~" She said in a sing songy tone. "Why don't you stay here for a bit? I'm sure Namekians don't have very good food. I'm an excellent chef, if I do say so myself!"
"Its actually true." Said Xanara. "I've had my best chef teach her personally how to cook."
For strangers, the pair of females sure were friendly. The box of chocolates was a small act, one that Shemha looked to repay with services, but even before those were rendered Xanara offered to teach her more about magic. The Majin doubted her ability to learn quickly, but she would be willing to give the effort if Xanara could be patient with her. Dipping into another bow, she graciously accepted the offer.
”I would be honored to be instructed by someone with your talents. I promise I will do my best to contact a member of the demon clan as soon as I can. Perhaps my connections to the Empire will award me some influence.” Shemha pondered, unsure if that would be the case, but it wasn’t beyond the realm of possibility. The Empire and Namek were allies, they might lend her aide simply for that fact.
Internally she was excited as Helia was. Throughout her life she took every opportunity to learn and this seemed like something a little special. Few individuals she crossed path with were able to use magic and fewer still claimed to do it so easily. Anything Xanara could teach her, the Majin would put to use the best she could.
”I am sure her skills far surpass mine.” She mentioned with a glance to Helia. When a servant to her former master, Shemha learned to cook and clean, but Ront always preferred simple meals. Practice allowed her to perfect the art, years ago, but she was far from being a five star chef. In short, she was a short order cook, able to prepare what was needed with little fluff and lacking the pretty presentation you might find at a formal dinner.

Xanara smiled as Shemha spoke. That was exactly what she wanted to hear. She took a step closer to the Majin, offering her a hand. "That is all I ask you do." She responded. "I need their help, and the only way that is going to happen is if I can find them. With your aid it should be a trivial matter."
Helia smiled at Shemha. "Well c'mon inside. Make yourself at home. Its kind of chilly out here, and nice and warm in the house." she moved past her and her mother. "I'll start up some tea!" She called.
Xanara watched Helia head inside before turning back to look at Shemha. "You may be majin, but if you haven't dabbled in magic this may be very very difficult for you." She brought a hand up, Placing the tip of her claw against Shemha's forehead. "You will have to listen and concentrate, but once we get you using once spell, your body should be able to adapt and magic will come naturally to you. Understand?"
She'd take a step away and motioned to the home. "Head inside, take a seat on the couch and meditate for as long as you need to. Tell me when you believe you are ready."
More than willing to help Xanara and her daughter with relations, Shemha smiled at the older females words. The offer to come inside was appreciated and accepted with a small incline of her head. With little done for these two they were willing invite her in, feed her and train her. Despite her power level and experience, Shemha felt very much the student in this scenario. More than willing to play that roll she only paused long enough for Xanara to press a clawed finger to her forehead.
”Understood.” Familiar with orders or instructions, whichever way you wanted to label it, Shemha took no offense to being given them. If she was to be the one learning here than it was her duty to listen carefully. Meditation was something she had been working on recently and if it would also help her access latent magical abilities then it was all the more beneficial.
Into the home she went, straight to the couch. A quick glance around familiarized her with the place before she took a seat. Flexible, she tucked her legs underneath her rump as she sat. With a deep breath she began to settle, focusing inward for whatever it was that might help her unlock the potential Xanara claimed she had.
Nearly an hour would pass, Shemha silent on the couch as she searched within herself. Finding what she felt was a calm center, she slowly opened her eyes. In all honesty she was unsure if she had done what was necessary, but mentally she felt ready to continue.
Post by Xanara Redhive on Dec 10, 2016 8:15:22 GMT
The home was a simple capsule house. It had four rooms. One large bedroom, A living room. a Kitchen, and a Bathroom. The living room itself was very basic, having just a single table in the middle of the room, and two couches either side of it. Xanara followed Shemha in and sat across from her, meditating as well.
The hour came and went relatively quickly, especially after Helia finished making Tea, and an added bonus of tea cakes. Helia smiled, her spider half seeming to glow before turning into two pairs of humanoid legs, though still covered in her tough exoskeleton. She sat besides her mother and smiled at Shemha, just waiting for her to finish.
Once she had Xanara opened her eyes. "Good." She said. She held out her hands to the Majin. "Take my hands. I will help you channel your magic. The first thing we will try to do is make something appear as you have seen my daughter do it." The Demoness would await Shemha's hands, and once they had been taken Xanara's aura would flare to life. The green flaming aura whipping about as she shut her eyes. "Focus on an object. Something simple. Imagine it in your mind... Once you have done that, Imagine yourself holding that object and just... Push."
When Shemha opened her eyes to realize Xanara sat across from her, a simple nod was her response to the request that they hold hands, the demoness attempting to aide her guest in accomplishing the simplest of magical feats. Slowly she reached out to take the female’s slender hands, her own red fingers coming to rest in the girl’s palms. With a deep breath she relaxed and listened to the instructions, eyes closed once more
Something simple? Shemha’s first thought was a number of alcohol beverages, that something she always enjoyed, but she quickly pushed those thoughts away. Those were mixtures of multiple liquids and solids along with whatever container you chose, not simple. Her mind searched for an object that she was familiar with, yet was simple enough to picture clearly in her head. Filtering through images she finally diced on something for her first attempt.
Having circled back to the initial thought about alcohol, she focused in on just a glass. Nothing fancy with etching or extravagant curves, but a simple household glass. One much like what you might receive a whisky on the rocks in.
Bringing the image into her minds eyes she pictured the glass in its entirety and then tried to “push” as Xanara explained. With the help of her newest acquaintance she let Ki flow from her body, eyes held tight until she felt something “land” in her lap. Slowly, almost nervously, she opened her eyes to look down at her lap, a glass resting it.
Despite her normal control over emotion, her eyes lit up at the success. Sure it was simple and sure Xanara helped guide her through it, but she had done it! Smiling she looked to the demon across from her, hands still clasped.
”That is amazing. What sort of limits does this have? Can I summon anything I want?” Shemha question, the first hints of real excitement in her voice as her mind raced with the possibilities. It was likely she was getting ahead of herself though.
Post by Xanara Redhive on Dec 18, 2016 5:40:00 GMT
"There are a few limits. Once you master it you'd be able to summon clothes, armor, weapons, Drinks, and other sorts of small things. You can't summon say... A mountain and throw it at people. Just small every day things. " Xanara began. "I don't use it myself personally. But Helia here uses it on a near daily basis."
Helia nodded. "It cuts down on expenses quite considerably. Want a drink but don't want to go out? Just make it with magic and you are done!" She giggled. "Its fun and its easy!"
Helia came to the back of the couch behind Shemha and placed her hands on the Majin's shoulder's, if she'd allow. "Speaking of, If you practice lots you'll master it in no time. Then you can get to more crazy stuff, like Telepathy." She smiled wider, showing off her long fangs. "Its really fun to use when you want to mess with people who don't know whose talking to them. Really freaks people out some times."
Xanara rolled her eyes and sighed before looking to Shemha. "We shall be here, if you so desire to come back and practice. We do have two beds in the bedroom if you'd like to live in comfort. I know Namekians don't really do the whole... Furniture thing."
There would be a his from the other room and Helia gasped before rushing inside. There was a rummaging sound before she came back out with a tray of Tea and a few tea cups.
"Here, enjoy some tea. Not everyone likes it, but its a good way to balance the mind..."
