The Creature Hunter: Soul Of The Wind
Orano Tatsumi was no ordinary creature hunter. He was well known yet a skilled hunter almost everywhere. He was famous because of his speed of killing creatures and his determination towards every task he takes.
He had many nicknames, but the most decent and popular ones were "Terror of The Desert" or "Soul of The Wind"
This task last he took was on the desert, which was an area he was an expert at. But this desert was called "Torox" the biggest and the only desert among the entire kingdoms.
When he took the task, he didn't lose any time and he immediately started traveling there. And after traveling for minutes, He then arrived.
He was slowly walking in the desert, under the extreme heat.
Orano was a person who had, brown short hair, brown eyes, and was 6 feet tall.
He was also wearing a long black coat with yellow motifs on it, wore black pants with black boots that also had yellow motifs on them. And he also had a white cape that covered his head and protected him from the heat and a bag that he carried with him.
He kept walking slowly towards the emptiness in the gigantic desert. But when he was walking, he saw something and started to walk there. He quickly approached there and crouched. There was a gigantic snakeskin lying in front of him. He thought about how it could get here, while he slowly examined it and tried to understand the location of the snake.
In this entire desert, it could have been gone somewhere else too, but he was sure that it was nearby. He started to walk again, slowly.
And walking for a couple of seconds, He felt a gigantic vibration under him.
He could sense that it was approaching.
He waited and waited for seconds, Then at that moment, it got out from right below him.
It was gigantic. And after he landed he looked at the creature again. A gigantic red snake was standing right in front of him. And before doing something, It leaned towards him and it looked into Orana's eyes, and examined his body.
On the other hand, Orano didn't run away or acted scared. He just stood there and did the same as the snake. He examined his prey.
He touched at the snake's skin and said,
"It has hard skin. Harder than the others."
The snake didn't seem to like his actions. So it got annoyed and slowly stood up. Now it was hissing towards him.
"So, despite its size, it was hiding very well all this time."
"Then so be it."
It tried to attack him, but he jumped and dodged the attack. As he was falling, the snake opened its mouth and waited for him to fall. But at that moment, he used his white sword and sliced the snake into two.
The giant snake quickly fell on the ground and died there.
On the other hand, Orano landed and started to walk slowly again.
To find his way back home he used the compass a compass named "Inhav". This compass was a thing that everybody had to take with them if they were going to enter Torox, to find their way back out.
After he got out of the desert, He returned to the first kingdom named "Ravaryn." Ravaryn was the calmest but the weakest kingdom among the eight kingdoms. Usually, people didn't like living in Ravaryn, But despite its popularity, it was a nice place to visit. It was some people's nightmare, Some people's sweet lullaby.
After Orano returned, he visited the bar that was located in the town and started to talk with the bar owner,
"I have slain the snake. It will be no problem for you no more."
"Oh! Thank you, young man! It was really big trouble for us. Because of that creature so many people here couldn't leave here for at least 2 weeks. I can't thank you enough."
He then grabbed a pouch full of gold then gave it to him and said,
"And here you go. The gold that I promised."
As usual, Orano slew a monster and got his payment. It was a normal day for him. He held his ear and he was about to leave, But when he grabbed the pouch and started walking, he heard two-man talking,
"What do you mean? Are you sure that it was the "rift"?"
"Yes, I am sure. I was too scared to touch it but I know it was that "Rift." "
He was shocked by what he was hearing. He then immediately turned to two guys that were sitting and started to walk towards them quickly,
He got to their table and said,
"Excuse me, but do you remember when you last saw that rift?"
After he got the information he needed, He quickly began to make his way to the place he described.
While he was walking, he held the blue crystal in his ear and started talking,
"Hey! Yuma! Did you hear them?"
"Yes, I did. You are going to check that rift don't you?"
"You know I have to. I will contact you as soon as I reach there."
"Ok, I'll be waiting."
This crystal was named "Zon" And helped people to communicate faster. They were the size of a little crystal and they easily fit a human's ear. However, the people who used them were only able to communicate within the kingdom they were in. They were also kind of expensive, but a lot of people had them.
The place where Orano was going was the forest of the first Kingdom, called "Vichicar". It was located to the left of the first kingdom.
After a quick walk, Orano arrived at his destination.
The forest was quiet as usual, but it had a calm atmosphere. While walking he looked around for the rift. After a quick look around, he saw it, the blue rift floating in the air. He immediately ran towards it.
He said in a quiet tone,
"Finally found you."
While he was examing it, he saw something, some view of somewhere.
"Huh? What is this?"
He looked at it with attention and said,
"Wait! This is the second Kingdom! But why is it showing there?"
After a couple of seconds, the rift disappeared.
Orano got surprised and said,
"Hey! Don't go!"
But he lost it. The rift was no longer there.
After his experience with the rift, he returned to his house. His house was located nearby the castle. Orano had a small but comfortable house. He also had a room full of magic books, potions, and creature parts.
When he opened his room door, he saw Yuma flying.
Yuma was a person, had red short wavy hair, had yellow eyes, and was almost 6 feet tall. He wore a black shirt that reached to his knees and had rolled up to his elbows, and had yellow motifs on it, he also wore white pants.
Yuma saw him and said,
"Oh! Tatsumi! Sorry, I was just looking at these cute creatures."
He stretched his hand out to show the white small creatures in his hand. These creatures were called "Pum's" and they were small enough to fit a human's hand or a pocket. They weren't wild or poisonous but they were hard to catch.
One of them got out of Yuma's hand and made him panic,
"Hey! Get back!"
Orano looked at him and said,
"We have to talk about this, it is urgent."
After sitting they continued their conversation,
"So you were in Vichicar, Did you found the rift?"
"Yes I did, but It showed me something I really didn't expect."
"As we read it didn't sound dangerous, Did something bad happened?"
"No, it is just like we read. But It showed me the second Kingdom."
"The second Kingdom? Hmm. I can't find an answer to that. Do you know why did it show there?"
"It might be a clue about that vortex."
"The one you got out 4 years ago? Maybe it is a part of it or something that is related to it?"
"It might be. In any case, we have to continue searching for those rifts. That is the only evidence we found so far."
"Yeah, I can't even remember how many books I read. It makes me very nostalgic."
He then looked at Orano and said,
"So are you going there?"
"Yes. I have to. I have to search for any evidence."
"Don't worry, I am believing that we will find evidence."
It has been 2 days since their conversation.
"So Yuma did you finish researching?"
"Oh yeah! I found the tickets for you."
"These are the tickets that will go between Ravaryn and Aetas right?"
"Yes, they are. And since you are the hunter of the government, there will be no problem when you are traveling."
He then remembered and said,
"And also before you go, let's go over the plan once more, shall we?"
"As I said, You will leave from Ravaryn, and travel to Aetas. Then when you find a second rift or something else, you will contact me. After that, if that happens we will meet at the fifth kingdom, Faye. Then after that, we will move according to the rift."
"Okay. Then I will be leaving now."
"It is going to be a long goodbye, but I have no doubt we will meet again."
Orano left without wasting any time. He had to catch the ship which he was going to travel with. He finally found the thing he was looking for, for a long time.
