Space was an ever such beautiful sight in the night sky, and was even better when out in space yourself. The stars shimmered like lights dancing alongside one another as far as the eye could see. It was impossible to tell the time of day, but with the beauty to surround you, it didn't matter. If you were lucky enough, a comet would shoot across your line of view towards the directions only the gods could have known. Then there were the different colored planets that would occasionally come into the picture, looking like large berries or marbles. These were the things little Glacius would see outside from his rooms window on the ship he and Captain Sieg were traveling along off of his home planet. Though, this was just the beginning of the little frost demons story.
Through his time on the ship for a number of years, Glacius had learned how to fight, his people's language, the ways of trade, and even some etiquette. What he lacked was interaction with other people, though this was expected since the only person he knew was Sieg his entire life, being far too young to remember his father when he had passed. One day when Glacius was just old enough to be the equivalent of a teenage human boy, questions began to really wrap around his mind now. So many things he didn't understand, and with each of those things, a hundred questions would soon immerse with them. Glacius was looking out from one of the cockpits windows meanwhile Sieg was steering the ship. Glacius' eyes just veered towards the Captain as his lips parted to speak, "Sieg, tell me.... how did my father die again?" That question again, the one that made Sieg cringe every time the boy would ask it. He tried in so many different ways to keep the truth from little Glacius, wondering if it would break him. Sieg took a deep breath and cleared his throat, "Glacius, haven't I told you this already? He died out in the Frost wars. Your father was truly a hero among your race. There really isn't much else to it than that."
Glacius turned and stepped closer to the man, between they're chairs, staring out ahead of them, "Did he even love me?" Sieg rose a brow and looked toward the boy, "Did he love you? Of course he did. What kind of nonsense is running through that head of yours Glacius?" The boy's tail flicked back and forth behind him like an irritated cat, "Well, I've been having dreams about him recently. Ones where he was scolding me, telling me how pathetic I am. I am pretty sure if he were here now, he'd look at me as though I was worthless." Sieg's hands gripped hard on the pilots steering handles and Glacius took note of it. It was clear Sieg was hiding something from him, but at this rate, it was pointless to try and pry it from him. Sieg gave a shake of his head, "No Glacius, he sacrificed himself for you, so you could grow and take over for him when you were strong enough. With my training you've managed more than even he did at your age. You've become a great fighter, you've mastered your transformations, and you are very strategic. You have much to be proud of." Glacius gave a heavy sigh and turned to walk back down the hall to his room, "If you say so." He called back. The young frost demon sat on his bed and thought deeper, "What's to happen when I tell him I don't want to rule? That I want to do my own thing. Am I really a freak among freaks?" Glacius worry was growing.
As a few more months had passed behind them, the ship had come across an interesting orb which looked like some large blueberry. Sieg had spoken over the comm system to the training room where Glacius was, "Hey, we're here. Head on up when you are ready Glacius. The large blueberry is in sight." The boy's eyes had widened with excitement and rushed up the stairs, and down the quiet and cold corridors to make his way to the cockpit. Glacius hopped over the arm chair and into his seat. Sieg grunted, "Ya know boy, you're gonna eventually break something if you're not careful." Glacius gave a dismissive wave of his hand, "Where's the blueberry, where's the blueberry!" He shouted in anticipation. Sieg chuckled, "It's right down there." He pointed to the lower right section of the cockpits windows. Glacius leaned out of his seat, "Oh, that's it? Huh.... looks like it might have more life than the passed few did." Sieg glanced down at his transmitter, "Mhmm, yes it does it seems." "What's this one called Sieg?" Glacius turned back to him. Sieg looked further along his map, "Seems this one is called Earth. Odd name. Though it shouldn't have too many strong beings down there, so this should be an easy training place for you." Glacius huffed, "Really? Weaklings? I want someone strong to fight." Sieg slowly picked his head up and gave Glacius a knowing look, "Now remember, you're not here to fight, you're here to socialize. If you are going to be a great leader some day, you need to learn how to speak with your people like you know what you're talking about. And we need to have them see you have experience, otherwise they will never take you seriously." Glacius gave a roll of his hazel eyes and placed his chin on the palm of his hand, "Yeah yeah, whatever."
Sieg drew the ship closer to the planet and began to enter the atmosphere. Down below passed the clouds, the two could see tons of trees, bushes, and small animals down by they're landing zone. Though something in the distance caught Glacius' eye and he pointed out, "Oh what's that?" Sieg turned to face where the boy was pointing, "Oh... that? That looks to be a town of sort. Don't go out near there till you're ready. I want you to get your barrings of this planet first. Don't leap before you can jump." Glacius quickly made his way to the ramp door as they landed in a small clearing from the woods. After they're smooth drop to the ground, Sieg opened the door and a ramp came sliding down which touched the soft grass below, "Remember, be on your guard at all times Glacius, don't be too trusting." Glacius gave him a nod and began to step off of the ship, "Good luck Glacius, I will be back for you in a year." As Glacius' feet first touched the tickling grass below his feet, his toes curled. He looked all around him on this bright and sunny day. A short smile grew on his face, breathing in the clean earth air, "Ah, finally.... non-artificial air. Such a huge difference. Now.... where shall I venture off to first?" He asked himself. Though moments later he headed towards the treeline and his ship took off from behind and back out into space. This was the start of Glacius adventure where he would meet some rather interesting characters along the way. Who was to tell what path he'd take. Only time would tell.
