A cloaked human female was running through the nighttime forest.
Just a little further. Just a little farther to the Anuran Village. Then she'd be able to complete the first league of her mission.
She thought back to ten years ago, when there was peace throughout the land. And it was thanks to the Legendary Transforming Guardian that it was so. He could transform into any of the types of Eternal Guardians, the only one of his kind.
The types of Eternal Guardians were: Thieves, Martial Artists, Blade Dancers, Hunters, Engineers, Rangers, Magicians, Illusionists, Warlocks, Clerics, Bards, Shamans, Warriors, Knights, Paladins, Keepers, Marine Biologists, and Paleontologists.
The Animal Class Branch was previously unknown until about three years before the Transforming Guardian appeared. Keepers could call upon the powers of Animals of the Earth and Sky, while Marine Biologists could use the might of Aquatic Wildlife, and the Paleontologists could utilize the capability of extinct beasts.
Yet, in that ten years ago, the Transforming Guardian just disappeared.
Then, Cyllindricas, an evil gypsy Drakai with major power over the Dark Arts and leader of the evil Black Banes, saw this as an opportunity to take over the land of Diaspora. She exterminated the remaining Eternal Guardians, all but one. The woman was that one. She was the last Eternal Guardian.
She had been in hiding for the last ten years, preparing for this one mission. If she failed, all of Diaspora would be doomed to Cyllindricas' reign forever.
It was then that she got to the Anuran Village. The Anurans were frog people and were a jolly, carefree race, but not ignorant of Cyllindricas' tyranny.
They were expecting her and immediately let her in through the village gate. All the remaining outposts that weren't under Cyllindricas' control had large walls around their outposts.
Then, the mayor of the Anuran Village came up to the the last Eternal Guardian.
"We've been expecting you, Elementia. Please, Lauren this way." he said.
The woman, now known as Elementia, nodded. She followed the mayor to a nearby home.
When she knocked on the door, a little male Anuran answered. Elementia heard a sobbing coming from the inside of the home.
The male Anuran recognized the magic lady before him.
"Mommy! Elementia is here!" he yelled into the house.
The sobbing stopped and an adult female Anuran came into the doorway. Her eyes were red around the edges.
"Elementia. I'm glad to see you. Please, hurry. Lauren doesn't have much time." she said.
She swiftly led Elementia to Lauren's room with the young Anuran in close suit. Lauren was a young female Anuran. She was lying in her bed with her eyes closed and occasional twitching. She had a deadly incurable disease that would kill her in 72 hours. It had already been 71 hours.
Elementia got out a single perfect blue crystal and a flask with water from a remote spring in the mountains out of her cloak.
"You're sure this will heal her?" the mother Anuran asked Elementia.
"Yes. But she will become a great warrior that may possibly save Diaspora. Are you sure you want this for your daughter?" Elementia inquired.
"Yes. If it means saving my only daughter, I will agree to it." the mother assure her.
"Very well then."
Elementia then used her magic to crush the crystal into a blue powder and then put it in the flask. She mixed it up until the potion was glowing.
"Open her mouth." Elementia said to the mother.
When she did so, Elementia put a swig of the potion down Lauren's throat and put the cork back on the flask.
Then Lauren opened her eyes and looked around!
She noticed her mother and said, "Mommy?"
Being overcome with joy, the mother Anuran hugged her daughter and, with tears in her eyes, said, "Oh, Lauren. I'm so glad you're alright."
She turned to Elementia and said, "How can I ever repay you?"
"Just let her go down the path of the Blade Dancer." she said.
Then, she disappeared in a swirl of light, leaving the Anuran family puzzled by her words.
Three weeks later
Elementia returned to her home in the mountains.
She thought back to the previous three weeks. She had gifted a child of each of the races, except the ogres, for they served Cyllindricas, with the power of one of the branches of the Eternal Guardians.
She only hoped that they would go down the right path.
