Narration In the same instance that Lex touched Thalina's hand, Lex disappeared into nothingness. The group simply stared at where Lex once was, in shock at what they just witnessed. "Fear not, she is nowhere, and everywhere. She is dead, but remains living. She is in the present with us, yet she is in the past as well. I will bring her back when she is ready." Cassius stared in complete amazement at the Oracle's power. "Where....did she go? Did you send her there?" "I did send her. I sent her where she asked me to send her. She is looking at the history of your people. Who's next? What do you wish to see?" "What do you mean our people? She isn't Arcanite...I am certain of that." Thalina's giant hooded head turned towards Cassius, slowly and methodically. "Are you certain that this is the question you want answered, Cassius of Belethren?" Cassius' eyes opened wide and he pulled his giant hat off his head. "How.....how could you possibly know that name? You...you aren't just a Legion Oracle, are you?" "I am what you make me out to be, Cassius of Belethren. You already know what I am. I am, as you call me, a Legion. My occupation, for lack of a better term, is the Oracle of Ages, passed down from Millenial Student of Magic to Millenial Student of Magic. I am more powerful than your dreams have ever told you I was, and yet I am weaker than a toddling with an injured arm. I am everything, and I am nothing. I am all of the knowledge you desire, with all of the power you fear will end your life. She's back..." Lex slowly materialized next to Cassius, in her original seat. Her eyes were closed and she was crying. She looked up and went to speak, but Thalina stopped her. "My name is Thalina, Lex. You are a rare breed of Arcanite, known as the Desert Dragonkin. They are a human race who bred with the dragons aeons ago. In the Desert Dragonkin Arcanites, there were three subgroups. Your subgroup was known as the Mage's Gems. Your mother and father are both like you, Mage's Gems. They had their powers drained from them for many, many years to give power to the Magi race of this world. They aren't completely drained though. Are they dead, you ask? I can't say yes or no, for it relies too heavily on you, child. Your history will come in time, but now you know what you are and who you are." Thalina looked down and began playing with her fortune teller, giggling to herself. "Isn't this fun?" she mused, softly to herself.
