Creus Marak Setesh Age:27 Appearance: Personality:
Driven and devoted,he will always give his all for the task he dedicated himself to.He loves kids and became a teacher to help them find their path.But he will be strict with them when they break the rules,its not that he believes in the rules,as much as he believes that breaking rules in ignorance of the consequences isn't something that should be done. Status:
Teacher at Atlas History:
Angel Rank: Path: Reason:
Creus was born into a ten generation magus family. Creus`s childhood was a normal one as his parents decided to be just that,parents.When he was 7 years old,they told him the family secret and said that they`d teach him if he wanted to learn.Creus was happy ,and quickly took to the path of the magus and never regretted his decision.
Seth took to his studies seriously,never letting something go until he understood it,and never moving to the next experiment until he finished the current one.At the age of 12 he found Alchemy,and never stray`d from it,finding it to be his second nature.When his parents finished transferring the Magic crest,he told them about his desire to study Alchemy,and at the best possible institute,Atlas.
His parents were hesitant at first but remembering their decision to put parenting above the path of the magus,they decided that they couldn't impose on their son decision if he was so dead set on it.After graduating middle school,he went to Atlas where he was accepted as a regular student by the teachers,but was somewhat despised by his classmates for his potential in regular magecraft.
Despite the lack of friends,Creus took the teachings of Atlas at heart and began research in ether clumps,manipulation through Alchemy and materialization through projectors.Throughout the years, he perfected his projectors shrinking them and shaping them into gauntlets and weaponizing them till they reached their final form,Apep and Ammut.Although his research went smoothly,Creus found himself wanting more,he was just going through life without a goal,without a purpose,his sole occupations being his studies and his research.
One night,while strolling around the faculty building,he meet another student,a girl looking out at the full moon,he couldnt help but strike a conversation with her and they ended up talking for a few hours,in which he found the girls decisiveness to be her dominant feature,before going back to his room feeling better.The following night,Creus found himself walking down the halls again hoping to meet that girl again.When he found her in the same place,they started talking again while looking out at the moon.
Half way through,Creus turned to face the girl, his eyes narrowing to study her reaction and expression, and asked her"Whats your goal in life?".
The girl,noting his serious demeanor turned towards him and answered without hesitation"To leave my mark on the world.To be remembered"
After hearing her answer Creus opened his mouth to voice the futility but closed it before any words came out,out of all the people he meet so far, he felt that she was most likely to succeed,in any case,she wouldn't give up on it,plus,the idea of leaving his mark on the future resounded with him too.After a small pause he talked again,"So is that why you came to Atlas?To be close to the competition?"
"Yes" the girl said,"Makes it easier to sabotage them,not that their worth it yet."
With that said, they went back to menial conversation,though at the end,Creus asked"Do you come here often?"
To which she answered in a nonchalant manner while shrugging her shoulders"No, i was just walking around yesterday when i got captured by the view"
The answer piqued his interest causing him to raise an eyebrow as he looked as her from the side,"Then how come i found you here toni---." he stopped himself as he realized he was letting information he didnt wanna share, slip.With five thought partitions,you`d figure one of them would pull the warning signs before it`d happen,and stopping halfway through the sentence would only make it easier to notice that he didnt wanna share.
The girl did make a point to show that she noticed his slip-up but also showed that it wasnt that big of a deal to her"So you were looking for me too?I was just out to spy on the competition,but you`re no threat.At least yet...You seem to lack purpose"
Creus relaxed when he saw that the girls reaction wasn't a bad or exaggerated one,and gave his answer to the subsequent statement"I might lack purpose,but i think talking to you again just made me find one...I just need to see how to go about it."
"Isn't that the reason you were looking for me?Isn't that the reason we were having this conversation?"she said with a smug smile on her face"I might've said i`d sabotage the competition,but no competition at all is no fun...".As she turned and walked away she also said"Anyway,lets meet up again sometime,I`ll have to keep a close eye on you it seems."
With his purpose in mind Creus went back to his room and thought up the best way he could leave his mark on the future,becoming a teacher.During the next years, he furthered his studies to become a teacher of Alchemy,all the while meeting with the girl and eventually married her.At the age of twenty three,he got the teaching position he wanted and set about leaving his mark on the future by inspiring the young generations.
A year later,he rose to the position where he was in charge of the student disciplinary committee,a place to better further his ambitions of inspiring youth,with the bonus of also setting them back on the right path.
A few years later,because of his skill in combat,the Director made him the person in charge of dealing with Atlas`s dirty work,and in accordance with the Atlas custom,he adopted the name of Setesh,which came with the position.After the ritual was started,the Director of Atlas called him in his office and informed Creus of the entire situation and what was likely to become of it before giving him a mission.To go to the place where the ritual was set up,and find a way to turn it off,but as Creus was about to leave the office, he also said that he trusts Creus`s judgment in doing whats right,saying that he knows that whatever Creus will do will be right.
As per his mission,Once Creus arrives in New Rome, he will find out what happened with the ritual and reshape the new world to how the old one was,but removing Gaia`s contract with the King of the Moon and the Aristoteles as a result Origin:

Dead Apostle History:
One night,walking around town, Dan saw her, walking alone on the street,a beautiful,pure and innocent girl,he just had to know more of her.Further investigation proved him right,the girl was innocent,got along well with anyone,and wouldn't hurt a fly,she hated violence that much.He couldn't stand it.So,one night,when she was sent out for groceries,he decided to turn her into a Dead,if he got lucky she`d become a ghoul and be forced to spend the rest of her undead life rising in ranks feeding of humans using the violence she abhors so much.
When she was alone on the street, he jumped on her and drained her blood and injected some of his own in her.The result however surprised him,not only did she not become a Dead or Ghoul or Living dead,she skipped all the steps and jumped directly to being a vampire,and even inherited abilities that take Dead Apostles centuries to develop,she had magic circuits that even the greatest of mages would envy.
It was perfect.He could have more fun this way.Dan left, he left her alone to wake up and go about her life,she`d ruin it herself.As time passed,she resisted her vampiric urges quite well,but she couldn't do it for ever.Once night,when the urge to drink was to great,she went out of the house in a daze and drank the blood of any homeless animal she could find.Dan wasn't pleased,it was an improvement,but not the one he wanted,it appears it wasn't her nature to hurt people.He`d have to give her a push.
The next day,she woke up hoping last night was a nightmare,but she saw that she was smeared in the blood of all the animals she`d drank from.In a state of shock,she ran to the bathroom and took a shower to clean herself up and spent the next days locked in her appartment,sendingand yelling away her friend, afraid to go out or even move out of the bed.Days later, when the urge to drink overcame her again,she walked out in a daze and started hunting for animals when a church agent stood in her way and snapped her out of her daze.
Apparently, during the last few days, there`s been a huge number of murders and all the victims were found drained of blood,and the day before the bodies were found,there was talk about a woman walking around in a blood soaked nightgown walking in a daze,her.The agent started attacking her,so she ran away.The man was impossibly fast, but she managed to keep her distance while running,until he started throwing black keys at her.
Dan was watching from a distance,happy that his plan was working out.During the last few days while she stood locked in her apartment,he drank the blood of a considerable amounts of humans and didn't even bother to try turning them into the dead,the high number of remaining bodies quickly attracted the attention of the church,and spreading the rumor about her also helped guide them.Now all he needs is to see her hurt him,its not like the church agent would stop if he could still move,and considering the reason she was on the street in the first place it wont be long before she gives in to her impulses.Is was about time.
The Church agent kept throwing black keys at her,some missed, some barely scratched her and some hit her limbs.She ran around a corner and pulled the blade`s out of her arms,the blood on the key and on her clothes finally caused her to loose it,making her give in to her impulses.When the church agent,having chosen to use the last corner to circle around and block her path,appeared and nailed her in the stomach with more keys,but she didn't react, she just tackled him to the ground,sunk her teeth in him and started drinking his blood.Every fiber of her being was telling her to stop,but every muscle in her body refused to comply.By the time her body listened to her,and she managed to push off of him, she had nearly drunk the man to death.Having barely pushed off, and still feeling the urge to drink,she ran away,she didn't wanna leave him to die,but she`d probably kill him if she tried to help.
For Dan, everything was going as planned,now it was his part again.He got off the building he was using as a vantage point and took the severely drained church agent to the nearest hospital,his wounds weren't that big, a few scrapes from the tackle and blood loss,some blood transfusions should fix him up by tomorrow for the next act.He also placed the girl ID card he had taken earlier when he entered her home after she left ,to set up the plan.Now he`d have to wait till the action begins.
The girl ran back to the only place she felt safe,the only place she knew other`s would be safe from her,she`d become a monster.While she hid in her bed all night and the next day,the church member woke up in the hospital,hooked up to blood transfusions with the ID card of his target on the nightstand next to him and decided to check it out.
That night, the church agent investigated the apartment and decided to check inside,by blowing down the walls with three black keys,terrified,she jumped and hid behind the bed as the executor sent the next three key right in the middle of the bed which then exploded from the force of the impact, in every direction,bringing to view a beautiful sword,completely encased in a diamond shape ice crystal,but still seemed to retain its sharpness.She couldn't help but be fascinated by it,as she was slowly reaching out for it,the church agent sent more keys flying towards her,snapping her out of her daze as they missed while she rolled over the sword, grabbing it in the process.
The church member proceeded to throw more keys as the girl got up, and risking it all on her newfound powers, jumped out the window and down four stories before running away.The agent followed,taking a more direct path on the roof top,and so did Dan, to keep an eye on his entertainment.The Church agent quickly caught up,as he`d pursued targets before, and the vampire before him was definitely new to all this.Making his way down to street level,he continued the pursuit on foot, and once in range,started throwing black keys.
The girl ran while the agent was throwing keys at her,she seemed to be out running them as they all embedded themselves in the ground behind her,until she stopped.She didn't want to stop,but couldn't help it,a black key had been thrown ahead and caught her shadow as she ran past a street lamp.Not being able to move forward, she turned around and saw the church agent stand some twenty feet away from her.He said something about a full moon,and how its gonna take a lot to kill her.She wanted to cry,she didn't wanna die.
Thats when she heard a voice in her head,telling her to use the ice if she wants to live.So she broke off an icicle hanging past the hilt of the sword,it was some twenty centimeters long.When the executor charged at her he was laughing,she dropped the sword and moved her hands in the way,stabbing him in the chest with the icicle,he didn't bother to dodge,as it barely broke the skin,but then it began to quickly grow ten times its size, ripping apart his ribs and piercing through his heart,killing him so quickly he was still laughing.The shock from the sight was so great,her mind couldn't keep up with it,so she fainted.
Dan was ecstatic,everything went just as he planned,the agent went to her apartment,she found the sword,and she used it to defend herself.Now there was only one thing left.He went down,took care of the black key,and carried her off to his lair.The first thing she did when she woke up was remember last night and what she`d done,followed by running to the toilet and puking her guts out
"You could`ve just used the floor you know...I dont care that much",Dan said, walking in on the girl while she freshened up at the sink
The girl jumped and retreated to the corner of the bathroom,"Who are you?,What do you want?".
"Im the one who dragged you off the street,and changed your clothes...I wanna talk,we can do it on the couch instead of the bathroom..." and then he moved to the couch.
The girl walked to the other end of the couch and sat down next to the sword she used the last night,"I-is that man...dead?"she knew what`d happened, but she still had to ask.
Dan`s answer was brutally honest and insensitive"Yup,you did him in good, half his chest was missing",it made her heart sink,she knew what had happened,but her mind wouldn't acknowledge the deed as hers.
On the verge of tears she asked"Th-then why`d you drag me away?..."
"I figured that since i made you, i'm responsible,so i`d better take care of you". the nonchalant matter in which he said it scared her,he claimed he turned her into a monster the same way any other person would say they've read the newspaper.
He then proceeded to explain the workings of the situation,that she was a Dead apostle, a vampire of sorts,and that he was in control of her."Yeah, so im gonna have you drink blood to feed me pretty much,just wait till you get a taste for killing.".
That last statement made her eyes turn wide with horror,she didnt wanna hurt anybody,let alone kill someone.But he didnt seem to notice,he just continued talking"First...some strangers.",hearing that she started screaming in her mind,while scrunching up into a ball,trying to denying him,but his words were resounding in her head.
"Then your teachers..."no,
"Then your colleagues"No,
"Then your friends...",NO,
"Then your family",
"NO"she yelled as she got up took the sword that saved her yesterday in hand and pointed it at him"Stay away!"
When she said that,Dan got up took a step towards her and asked"What ya gonna do? Kill me so that you wont kill others?...It doesnt work that way,even if you kill me,you`ll still have to drink blood to survive."
The girl stepped back, as her hands clenched the sword harder,she felt the icicle at the handle having reformed,she broke it off"G-get back or i'll",she then threw the icicle at Dan`s feet.
Dan just stepped back while laughing,"Apolyon is my sword,you think thats gonna work?".After the icicle expanded,he continued his way forward,picking a knife of the table while she backed up for every step he took.
When her back hit the wall,she yelled again while raising the sword till it was at chest level,"Stay back"
"No"was Dan`s answer,"I`ll kill you,then move on to everyone in town,probably start with your school too."and brought his knife arm down.
As she heard his say that he`ll kill her school,her town,she yelled "NO" with everything she had and stabbed the sword forward while shutting her eyes.
When blood reached her hands,she opened her eyes and saw that she had stabbed Dan in the heart.She had killed again,this time while knowing what she`d done.
As he pulled himself off the sword,Dan was laughing as he collapsed on the floor,he had finally succeeded in what he set out to the moment she became a vampire instead of a ghoul.To take this pure little girl,and break her,turn her against her nature by her own choice and action.He didn't need anything anymore,immortality gets dull,and with this accomplishment, he could die happy.
She however was not, she`d balled up again as she realized she`d killed him.And he was laughing,he's a monster he had to be, he was laughing while he was dieing,so was the man from the other night,he was also laughing while he died.Monsters,all of them,including her,as she was laughing after just having killed someone.The world would be better off without them.
But what could she do,the world is big,and she is helpless.During the next days,her mind calmed down and came to terms with what she did,she labeled it as the first step of ridding the world of all the monsters like Dan,like her,or that man yesterday.She spent the next year hiding and refining her skills and learning more about Dead Apostles in Dan`s lair,going out only to drink blood from a bloodbank and only right before her urges would have her do it unconsciously.She then left the lair and started hunting those she labeled as inhuman.During this period she learned a lot through experience,following Church members to DA hideouts before fighting and killing the survivor.
When the ritual happened,she moved together with other people to New Rome begrudeingly using her eyes to feed of humans whenever she has no alternatinve but never killing the normal ones.
