The N90 Nebula is a star-forming region found nearly 200,000 light-years from Earth. Radiation from the bright blue, newly formed stars is eroding the outer portions of the N90 from the inside. Credit: NASA, ESA and the Hubble Heritage Team STScI/AURA)-ESA/Hubble Collaboration
Alright RT, enough of this. You even addressed a question about this on the pre-volume 5 Q&A. YOU CAN’T USE YOUR SEMBLANCE WITHOUT YOUR AURA. How many times are you guys just going to ignore that? This is the fourth time you’ve have a character have inconsistent Auras/Semblance. This is really starting to irritate me
I drew a small load of Pyre AU designs for Critical Role characters, but they mostly ended up in a Patreon sketchbook.
The triumvirate known as Vox Machina find the noble boy half dead in the downside. Too young for the black horns to already be extending from his forehead, but there they are, plain as day. The boy is quiet, for too long, up until the next Rite, when he sees their Reader (Blindfolded! How odd.) exit the wagon. A weight almost seems lifted, and the boy introduces himself as Percy. (It takes longer for him to confess the crime of his banishment. Being able to read, he learned, meant being a Reader, a leader. He could not stomach that position.)
The harp twins take a liking to him. Percy speaks to one of them in particular as they travel, learning how Vex and her brother ran from both the Commonwealth and the Highway Remnants both, their wings clipped by one, and their ears cropped by the other. He listens to her, swearing to repair her wings so she can fly as she should, sealing the promise by giving her all the possessions he still retained in the Downside: fabric, parchment, old delicate trinkets smuggled on him when he was exiled, once kept secure and used to barter, now a symbol from him to her.
Vox Machina participates in many Rites together, until a night when the stars shine brazenly as their Pyre weakens, when Percy seems to run two directions at once. Himself, white hair, troubled eyes, and deft hands grabbing the orb, and Not-Himself, made of smoke and shadow, screeching onto the other team to smother their Aura and banish them. Vox Machina wins that night, but the stars shine a little less for Percy afterward.
The arms of the Galaxy are coated with regions of formation of bright hydrogen pink stars, sets of newborn blue stars and obscure dust tracks that provide the raw material for future generations of stars.
