    Memory Fragment: 4.8 [Master of Masters]
    Location: The Dorms; The Master's Study
    Time: 5PM





    "Looks like the kids should be back about any minute now, gotta hand it to them they've been a handful." The Master took pause as he sat his desk.

    His hand rested on a book, a tome rather, known to him as the book of prophecies. One to which he'd spent an fair portion of his youth crafting page for page as he peered into a future. The tome itself detailed the sources of many aberrations, appearing in the form of light, darkness, the dawn the dusk, and even manifestations of time, space, and negative emotions. There was a passage on the keyblade in here he often taught when commissioned by the academy to do special lessons.

    "Kingdom Hearts" the master uttered, "The Xabat, better known as χ-blade is the key forged from the alignment of the clash of thirteen darknesses and seven lights. In other scripts, thirteen lights where said to take on the world to be sieged by an insurmountable darkness, one in which would corrupt and consume the hearts of worlds themselves and leave them as empty shells, called Harrowed Ends."

    The master turned the page and sighed, it was littered with his chicken scratch and a myriad of symbols. Omni was written as a footnote here.

    "The wielder of the all encompassing power of Omni was to appear before humanity and chose twelve among them, upon the twelfth chosen, he'd become mortal and join them as thirteen. This these thirteen would be bound to an inescapable and awful fate in which they'd be placed against the insurmountable darkness as civilization and the balance of the worlds shifts heavily in favor of the darkness. The end of he world by no means could be prevented, but not even the passages speak in detail of what happens once the darkness arrives."

    He turns the page to the very last page and reads the passage aloud.

    "It is said that the darkness will find invitation through the seeds of doubt that spring forth in the hearts of even the most stalwart of them all. A kind of doubt that can only be inspired by a betrayal of trust that is the magnum opus of pretense. The kind of doubt that would bring forth the incentive to fight and change fate. The Betrayer would inherit the Gazing Eye and The Box will open. It is unknown what will happen, this is the only part of the tome that isn't definitive and is open to multiple different interpretations."

    The master closed his book and looked at the pictures, headshots he'd taken of everyone he'd had under his tutelage. He divided the photos into three groups. His picture and Luxu's were at the top. Below he moved Eths, Saebyeolbe's, Shiki's, Try's, and Lucrecia's. Followed by the a single row, with Komaeda's picture alone. The next row held Jay's, Iontis, Yamato's, and Reforge's pictures. Finally the last isolated image was of Midna at the very bottom.

    "I didn't name any of you carelessly, the broken among you will realize much later what your other names are." he recollected them in brief before he spoke.

    "Defiled. The Benevolent. The Harmony. The Undying. Iridescence. The Ultimate. and The Desire."

    He tapped the desk and stared at the photographs before being alerted to the sound of the first pair of foot steps. Tiny feet, must be Reforge with Try prompting their return first. He chuckled gathering their photos and placing them across his desk next to the picture he'd taken with all of them as a group on the first day. He was fully aware the game had already started long ago, and this time he wouldn't be around for how it played out.

    "I truly love each and every one of you as my own. I'll trust your call when it's all said and done, but you must never know the full extent or else you'll just come looking for me while everything around you falls to ruin. What life that remains is always going to be more important, because even darkness can be salvaged...and you'll disagree, you'll fight, you'll even perpetuate your beliefs against one another and generate your own conflicts beyond my sights, but the commonality exists. Love. Your methods will raise questions, but questions in dire need of being asked, because you'll grow stronger from challenging what you believe, and a miracle will happen."

    The Master shrugged, placing the book in his drawer and exiting his study.

    [Author's Pow Wow]

    Break from a small story component to explain what a few things are thus far that's being touched on in the memories, this is more for the role-players to get an idea of where a lot of these things come from in the roleplay that is live as of right now. It's much easier for me to explain it here with live references as seen in the memories themselves.

    We'll start of with the important stuff.



    What is the time period?
    The story is written on an AU to the original timeline except we're going a very long time into the future.

    Who is The Master of Masters?
    This story's master acts as a man who is otherworldly, master, father-figure, teacher, and participant in a gambit against an unnamed enemy. The Master serves a role of ushering the power known as "Omni" to 12 exceptionally gifted people. His goal was to divide his power up until he himself became human, to name himself the 13th among that group of exceptional people, IE: Resolutes.

    What are the Master's intentions?
    As you can tell by reading, the master's ultimate intent is to see his 12 remaining resolutes succeed after the world has ended. His goals are to inspire good faith, to embolden and empower them. While attempting to foster bonds between the group as a whole, he is primarily focused on bringing people together into pairs of two, they should act as the other's rock or moral and combat support to challenge and question their resolve as well as decisions they make well after the master's inevitable departure.

    What is Omni?
    As the master is, or at least was "otherworldly" or even divine you could say, so was Omni. Omni is a power born from countless human hearts, and it only forges and functions to those with hearts bound in an extremely powerful sense of conviction to themselves, to a cause, to an ideology or philosophy. The master was originally an incarnate/manifestation of Omni itself, encompassing "All". All aspects of convictions, beliefs, and acted as a shepard to stray hearts. Guiding them in passing to the true kingdom hearts. Upon enacting his Gambit, the master has divided his power omni to 12 worthy hearts, bound by fierce resolve. Resolutes.

    As the memories play out, I will explain two more components to Omni that will also come into fruition in the roleplay itself.

    Who are the Resolutes?
    The Resolutes where humans with powerful sets of convictions thats the master deemed worthy to pass an aspect of Omni to. In total there are 13 aspects of Omni's Conviction.

    Almighty - The Master of Masters
    ∞. Continuum - Luxu
    0.Time - Eth
    I. Indomitable Will - Saebyeolbe
    II. Divine Protection - Shiki
    III.Rebound All Opposition - Try (name unknown)
    IV. Nullification - Lucrecia
    V. Hope & Despair - Komaeda, Nagito
    VI. Paradigm - Jay/Jaz
    VII. Growth & Evolution - Iontis
    VIII. Insatiable Hunger - Yamato
    IX. Knowledge & Linguistics - Reforge
    X. Desire - Midna

    Each resolute embodies an aspect of Omni and that resolve defines them as the 13 Resolutes.

    When will Try ever remove her helmet???
    As soon as Piercing Light ever draws her face, til then, NOPE.

    Memory Fragment: 4.9 [All]
    Location: The Dorms; Dining Hall
    Time: 7:30pm




    The master smiled. This was the loudest you could hear the table had been in the past couple of days. The table was set, twelve of them were seated and the master was hanging over as the entree's were set over with silver dishes. Each releasing steam as they had a prepared meal, as eyes shifted to Try whom sat there in a complete state of motionlessness talking to Reforge.

    Eth twiddled his thumbs as he looked over at Luxu across from him, these two where the closest to the master at the head of the table. Luxu making a gesture to zip it, as in not disclose the contents of their conversation and Eth simply returned with a nod as his fork was buried into his plate.

    Saebyeolbe sighed, staring at the plate briefly and thinking he might've spoiled his appetite from the ice-cream. He could only think about the idea of their being a dishonest fool among them. Rolling his eyes he was determined at the very least to eat something. Shiki was collectively in the same mode, albeit taking more of a quiet tenderness to how much energy was in the room. Only a few days, and it appeared that everyone was coming alive, it brought a smile to her face, a rarity in some of the tragic things she's experienced between then and now.

    "Be sure you eat the greens as well." Lucrecia said to Jay, almost sounding motherly.

    "R-right." Jaz responded, her ear's twitched like that of a foxes. Taking in the steam, her nose crinkled and her snout protruded briefly before shifting back. Releasing a long sigh, Jaz began to eat occasionally looking up at Recia as an example of proper etiquette.

    "Shoulders off he table Jaz." Lucrecia enforced, soft but firmly as she smiled.

    "Someone's starting to lean towards the motherly side." Komaeda interjected and chuckled, "Fitting for a powerful light worth following to the ends of the earth."

    Recia merely gave Komaeda the thumbs up and continue to eat.

    "Now now, we're all friends here aren't we? I want us to grow together, elevate one another." His smiled seemed to twist just a tad.

    "Nagi." Yamato said across from him. "Leave Recia be, just eat, everyone's winding down." he said pointing at Iontis, Midna, Try, and Reforge. "Theres nothing I value more, than honor and respect. Show some for your mates workin' hard alright?"

    On the other end of the table, Reforge sat in his child form talking to Try rather excitedly.

    "You were AMAZING back there! Can you teach me how you did that??" Reforge said, starry eyed and hyper.

    "It's not something I can exactly teach Reffy, ugh. Please don't make me repeat myself, i'm sure you know a reflect spell or two." She sat there with her arms folded.

    "Hmm?" Reforge looked at her dish was still with the lid on. "Aren't you gonna eat anything??" his light bulb over his head went off, visible to everyone at the table. "Wait a minute. How are you supposed to do that with that helmet on?? Come to think of it, you didn't take it off during breakfast this morning either!"

    Reforge pouted and puffed his cheeks.

    "Ugh, this is why I'm not sure about children right now, can we talk as adults Reffy? Leave the matter alone, I like my privacy." she briefly, stood up and picked up the dish to then proceed to leave the room with it.

    "Try has got the right idea." Iontis said with a light sigh as he tapped the side of his plate. "Great work today Midna, remember what I said, don't follow my reckless example."

    "Hey look at you!" Midna said rather cheerful, "Your learning, you actually remember my name this time. Hah, i'm only teasing, but thanks, i'll try not to get knocked off a platform next time."

    Iontis simply gave her a look, and what looked like the slight upturn of a smile before excusing himself in the same fashion that Try did.

    It's been a bit of a ride today, but it was definitely evident that everyone was tired. The master sat and ate with his resolutes that remained and tasked two that left the table to do the dishes alongside Komaeda.

    Memory Fragment: Dish Duty pt. 2 [Try, Komaeda, Iontis]
    Location: The Dorms; Kitchen
    Time: 9:15PM




    "
    How did I get conned into doing the dishes again...?" Iontis groaned scrubbing the plates.

    "
    Ah, rotten luck as always, nothing new for me." Komaeda said with a grin as he rinsed the ones handed to him.

    "
    I'll starve before I eat in front of you guys. This chore is just a price paid for privacy." Try's slight flex of strength cracked a dish she was drying. You couldn't see it, but she felt it was a bit unnatural a fracture.

    "
    You've certainly got everyone curious about your face, as well as your name." Iontis proposed "It's as if you don't quite know yourself about either, my question is, why?"

    Try placed the last dish on the rack and the one Komaeda gave her to the side. "If there aren't any dishes...there wouldn't be a conversation about my face. I see what your doing here."

    "
    You sound utterly ridiculous right now, what do you mean 'if there aren't any'?" he was getting irritated now, but noticed she turned and the keyblade was in her hand. "Are you listening to me? What are you going to do with that?"

    She raised her hand and there was a loud thwack sound.

    "
    Oof." Komaeda grunted rubbing his head where Try's keyblade was buried, in the forest that was his tangled bush of white hair.

    "
    What are you mental woman?? You just hit him directly in the head, and why would you move in the way you idiot??"

    "
    Don't get in the way if you don't want to get hurt. Isn't it obvious? Move Komaeda, i'll rid us of the dishes, permanently."

    "
    I seriously cannot believe what I'm hearing...you deal with this Komaeda."

    Try moved her keyblade over to Iontis. "
    Don't go telling the master Ion. It's not like I did anything to him"

    "
    Ion..? We're doing pet names now? You're so strange Try...fine. But if you don't want that, then do me a solid here. Wash the dishes, don't break them, we'll stop asking about the damn helmet too."

    The keyblade vanished as well. She took a step forward nonchalant and picked up the last dish that she put down. All the while Komaeda rubbed his head, feeling a lump there to no one's surprise. Iontis sighed, and proceeded to pass the dishes to his right until they were gone. As he drained the water from the sink he leaned against it.

    "
    We're in luck, I don't think she's going to break anything...this time." Komaeda said with a bit of a frown.

    "
    Lets keep this between us three." Iontis said with a sigh. "You're definitely weird to me, but you're not so strange that you'd do either of us substantial harm."

    Iontis placed his hand on her helmet. "
    Midna is gradually changing my opinion about being here, and about all of you, unique is an understatement if there ever was one. Feels like theres a lot we your peers have to teach you Try, for starters...lets not break things...please?"

    Try merely gave a casual nod, parsed with a cloth in hand, and dish nearly pressed but not cracking this time. Room for improvement to be sure.

    The conditions were to the extremes that you would expect from the Master. He was a hard read, you couldn't tell if he was being heartlessly cruel or too kind. Teetering on the very brink of either when he wasn't being a cryptic shark among others. The called for Ð to approach, and sure enough, the number 0 approached.

    "Keyblade?" the master questioned.

    A powerful stream of light radiated from his hand, and Eth brandished Ethernal to his hand. Luxu looked from the group with a glint in his eye, sure enough the blade wasn't visible to anyone there given the distance between him and the key. Admiration appeared in the Master's voice, to say he'd foreseen this day would be an understatement.

    "Looks like you found that aforementioned keyblade I said you would Ethy. Good good. Show me something else."

    Eth looked at the master with a slight of his head, "Something else?" he shuffled on the back foot as the master took a step towards him.

    "Resolve. Dear Eth. Show everyone your Resolve!"

    The field colluded with a powerful pressure, gravitation that could be felt pulsing through the grassy fields. The Master's apprentices stood present, the scarred and whisper erecting a dome to guard against the master's actions.

    "But they'll...just forget as quickly...fine."

    Eth raised his hand and pressed against his chest. The thought of his mother crossed his mind, those fleeting moments, the image of her pieced together his resolve. How could he avoid this happening again, often a question he asked himself invariably. A small breath of air left his lips, the pressure cracked and blew upward forcing several pieces of grass to scatter. Eth had cut the pressure, he emitted a blue radiance which perpetuated a warm feeling.

    "Resolve or no Master...I'm not ready for any of you to see it..."

    "You wouldn't...No no not that, the other thing!" The master took steps of panic before the dandelion he plucked slipped from his hand. "Uh-oh." he then and vanished into a portal of light.

    Eth turned on the group standing behind the dome, and the light washed over all of them. The blue luminescent glow was pure, warm, and inviting, but it marked a small gap in time. The memory mixed with a rewind was put in place. Eth opened his eyes and the master's words repeated.

    "Keyblade...wait...deja vu? Ugh, you did it again you scoundrel. Fine! Take a seat Untouchable! Moving on..."

    The master rubbed the side of his head before he clasped his hands loudly.

    "Resolute. You know why you're all called that right? Any one care to guess, oh! Show of hands, c'mon!"

    The master looked into the crowd, each of them glimpsing at each other, uncomfortable, awkward. One of them raised their hand, like the master, hooded.

    Memory Fragment: Resolve Match#2 [Shiki, Yamato]
    Location: The Dorms; Training Field #1
    Time: 12PM





    Not to be underestimated, Saebyeolbe walked away with a limp as he fostered some critical damage sustained from his practice round with Try. There was something to be said here, the master made a note of it as they returned to the side. Luxu cast a powerful curative spell to afflict them both, Try's rebound re-applying the effect on top of it's original cast at 75% potency.

    "Resolve. I've already said it before my students, it will put the wind in your sails and propel you forward. I will say that, each of you represents something significant, but more than your resolve, what defines you?"

    He left them with a question before he snapped his finger and pointed at two more of his students.

    "Alright, lets get a move on. The Savage, Yamato and The Whisper, Shiki. Same drill as the previous two."


    Yamato stood up and stretched pulling from his sides and his back as he looked over at ol' doom n gloom. He grazed the scar across his left cheek, how long has it been since he'd satisfied the desire to destroy? Too long, this state of being docile running rag-tag with that fool Komaeda was starting to put a damper on his style.

    "Show me something worth my time. Or this won't take very long, honor above all else, but I don't mind a challenge if we're being transparent."

    He purged the gluttony into his hands and turned to give her his full attention.

    The was a quiet but firm release and draw of breath from Shiki. She'd given it a moment, before her right hand brought forth a dark keyblade that bent the softest of light, shine through from an orb at it's end. This was her memento mori.

    "Wits about you Whisper." Yamato said walking forward, as the seems of reality where waving about.

    He plucked his shades from his shirt and placed them on his face. Placing the left foot back, he compressed the zone behind him and fiddled with the contrast and brightness of the light intensity turning himself into a walking lantern that was getting brighter and brighter. He jumped forward with a double-flight jump angled horizontally and swung his gluttony to crash against Shiki's memento mori. He was too bright to see, but the sounds he made gave some evidence to his next movement.

    "Relying on sound hm? Don't get cocky!" he tore the flow of ambient atoms brushing past each other within the zone, dulling the noise as his knee lodged into Shiki's stomach.

    She was launched outside of the zone. Dimming the lights around him, he noticed he hit something strange. "Looks like she erected a barrier just now. Resourceful, but you'll need to do better." it took ample time, but his resolve finally dissipated around him and he held his hand outward to forge a zone in the vicinity of Shiki. It tore through space, and consumed the area behind her in order to forge a powerful string of meteors to release from just behind the zone's threshold.

    Feckless youth, you can use the zone as a gateway too?

    Shiki rolled to her right noticing the meteors were largely aimed at the rest of the group. Something to understand about using her resolve, there was a surge of hesitation. Barriers to protect her external, when in truth the chains themselves acted as seals for a much deeper source of conflict within her. She'd just have to trust that he would see to their safety. With a twirl of Memento Mori she launched it down the beaten path to cut through Yamato's defenses.

    Your open.

    A wince of her eye, you could barely see it. A single chain fastened to her keyblade as it arc'd downward and swatted him across the chest three times. The meteors the flew past her crashing into the scarred as he towered over holding a massive shield of light before dropping it downward. Memento Mori was then resummoned to her side, as her first chain coupled and doubled around Yamato, enacting it's sealing properties to neutralize him in place.

    "Thats checkmate, Yamato."

    The others looked on at Shiki with some wide eyes. Saebyeolbe having dropped the shield he was holding just shook his head form side to side, but acknowledged his partner was definitely talented and cunning.

    "Niiiiiiiiiiiiice I think we can wrap this one up. Better luck next time Yamato."

    Yamato could feel the bind becoming undone, but once it touched him, he had realized there was nothing more he could do with his resolve. That detrimental state, his thirst for a challenge finally feeling alive. As the binds slipped away he approached Shiki and gave a bit of an over-bearing embrace to which she fidgeted in shock.

    "They don't make'm strong like you anymore. Good match!" he said exposing the sharpness of his teeth with a wide grin. He shook her hand before walking with her over to the rest of the group.

    Shiki released a sigh, she had some odd feeling for the safety of the others as Yamato attacked recklessly in the way he did. Perhaps this sense of security came from Saebyeolbe not being a slouch to act? There felt like there was another interaction but she couldn't put her finger on it. She looked over at Eth briefly and he sighed.

    "I didn't think we had crazies in our happy little flock." he said holding onto an umbrella and twirling it over his head.

    Memory Fragment: He...Can Do That..? [Lucrecia, Komaeda]
    Location: The Dorms; Training Field #1
    Time: 12:30PM





    "Alright, your up. Numero Quatro, Monochrome and Number V, The Harbinger. Get in there and show us your resolves, Reesh, Lucky Pants!" The master clapped to the dismay of his two students barely having the desire to make eye contact.

    "Ugh...YOU. Why did he have to match me against you, out of everyone here. I'd of taken Reforge over this creep."

    "Woooooo! I'm popular with that ladies you know!" A child Ref shouted from the side.

    "Put a sock in it Reffy." Try tapped his forehead and he sniffled.

    Komaeda pulled forward, his sleeves were long and you couldn't see either of his hands. He cuffed his chin and tilted his head slightly, his teal orbs with their unorthadoxed swirls seemed rather demented. As good as it was going to get, fight with his resolve? What was the master's angle here, no one would even understand what was happening if he actually tried. He thought about it in the back of his mind briefly before he dropped his hand.

    "This is a mistake master, can someone else fight? I don't want to use my resolve, it's worthless and wasted on someone as amazing as Lucrecia." he said it point blank and as bluntly as ever.

    "Erk~!" The master cringed. "Well...you see...about that. Oh come on, I worked so hard to get you all out here. Fineness each other and impress them with the skills you developed from me! It's only fair!"

    Lucrecia unfolded her arms and rolled her eyes at Komaeda before taking position. She was the daughter of a military commander, her tact and poise where far from abysmal. This rag tag shenanigan starter needed to be ironed out and fall in line with everyone else. She snorted purging the white radiance of her Lucient, and the grey eye that sat in the end of her keyblade.

    "If you aren't going to fight Komaeda, then get off the field. Last warning."


    "You wouldn't attack someone as worthless and uninteresting as me. Your heart always feels the need to save the ones like me, it's just how the natural order of things goes." a dark raincloud lingered over his head, miniature, without explanation it was just...there.

    "Saebyeolbe is incredible, Try is phenomenal, Shiki and Yamato, flawless executioners, and now you Recia. Your lights are all so warm and radiant, I'm just happy to be able to bask in this kind of talent." Komaeda cupped both shoulders embracing himself as he shivered intimately. "It sends shivers down my spine. All of you are so wonderful!"

    Komaeda snapped his finger. "I got it!" he reached behind his jacket and pulled out a revolver. "I'll show how my resolve works. Lets play a little game of russian roulette."

    "SERIOUSLY!? WHERE DID YOU GET A FUCKING GUN!?" She retorted, justly so and in a panic eyes fixed on the revolver.

    "Such language Recia, calm down. As you can see--" he removed the chamber to reveal six bullets, and only removing one. "It's loaded save for one bullet. Now what I'm gonna do is spin the chamber two times, the first time i'm going to point the gun at you and then fire. The second time I'm going to point the gun at myself and then fire. My promise is that both times, that 1 in 6 chance will occur both times, and the bullet won't leave the chamber." he spoked with his right eye open and left one closed.

    Lucrecia was speechless, was this really a resolute? He sounded like a lunatic.

    "Master! This is unacceptable, are we really going to just let Komaeda freely shoot himself and Lucrecia?? Where did he even get a gun."

    "Yes, we are going to allow it." the master said folding his arms behind his back and standing by.

    "WHAT!?!?" the remaining resolutes said as a collective, even Luxu and Eth.

    "Then it's settled, no arguing with the master." Komaeda turned to Recia and pointed the gun between her eyes in the short 9 meter distance away from her. "Don't look so nervous, just trust me alright?" he started chuckling as he only had a single eye open when spinning the barrel and popping it and pulling the trigger back.

    Everyone's eyes where on Komaeda as he was fixed to pull the trigger. Trusting in his resolve to bring with him fortune or misfortune, this was a reality twisting, gut-wrenching moment. Lucrecia a bit dumbfounded to even be in this situation, as his finger lurched slowly over the trigger. Finally a pull.

    *click*.

    empty. Empty. EMPTY.

    "Huh? Well whaddya know, out of the five bullets left, you got the empty slot...thats not exciting at all."

    Lucrecia's heart jumped into her throat, and she felt sick to her stomach. The sense of dread that hung in the air as their ally casually looked at the gun and counting the bullets, five where still in the chamber. Judgingly looking at him, Recia tumbled back and fell on her hands with her eyes wide as he spun the barrel a second time, this time pointing the gun at his own head, barrel to temple. Without wasting any time this time he pulled the trigger.

    *BANG!*

    "Hmm?"

    "Working as intended Komaeda?" Eth's voice near him as he held the bullet in his hand and everyone looked at where Eth was last, and then holding the bullet in his left hand.

    Laughter broke out from Komaeda as the gun dropped to his side, and you could visibly see the smoke sizzling from the barrel. To front, let alone laugh after narrowly escaping death or rather, cheating death on himself in that very instinct to force the probability of this outcome. What kind of mad man would use their resolve in a way that implicates or forces the involvement of their peers. He was happy, happy to have been a participant in a game of life or death and to beat it.

    "You're...INSANE!" Lucrecia said nearly on the verge of vomitting as she returned from the field.

    "I guess none of you really understand Number V's resolve then yeah?" The master folded his arms as he watched them walk back
    slowly. "It's actually fairly complicated, but lets just say he can input his will over causality effecting multiple different timelines. Mind you, it's all about luck, so lets just say he's rolling a dice and gravity is his will all of it. In five out of seven potential scenarios at minimum, he shoots himself in the head and dies, in the remaining two despite the fact there could be more, he shoots a blank in one, and in the last scenario Eth saves him. Truthfully we'll never know which is which until the outcome is upon us. Hmph."

    The master looked at Komaeda and then again at the revolver. "You must understand, it's dangerous game your playing with your own life, there more to his resolve than just that, but his luck does not mean he himself receives the benefit of it all the time. There has to be a trade off somewhere, if Recia not taking a bullet means he will while chancing on a different scenario where he lives, he'll gladly take it."

    "A guy like that would risk everything on a gamble? Willing to die knowing he will or not by chance alone...? Recia is right, he is insane..." Saebyeolbe gave Komaeda an odd look one where even he was unsure of that kind of resolve.

    Memory Fragment: Resolve Match#4 [Reforge, Midna]
    Location: The Dorms; Training Field #1
    Time: 12:40PM





    After Komaeda's less than stellar stunt that nearly put everyone's blood pressure through the realm of darkness and back, things calmed down. The master gave everyone a couple minutes to calm their nerves, and from the distance Komaeda was talking to Eth, Shiki, and Saebyeolbe. Recia rightly so was having a conversation, still shaken from the pair of balls Komaeda had on him for playing double jeopardy with both of their lives as if they were throwaways. Unable to respect how quickly he would extinguish his own light if it meant the others could blossom and prosper.

    "While everyone's settling down, we're continuing with the matches. Gonna ask that number X, Harbored Destiny and number IX, The Eloquent step forward to do the tango with each other for a couple minutes."

    "Oh?? You don't have to tell me twice master!" Reforge perked up and came flailing forward in his child form no taller than three feet and nine inches. His arms were arched like and airplane and he scuffled about in circles waiting for Iontis.


    "Hard to believe that he can do that at will. Seems a bit odd, but I digress, lets have some fun Ref-kun" Midna said with vigor.

    Placing her left heel on the back foot his shifted his stance to one of aggression. Midna took a breathe and her palms glowed with white transmutation circles as twirled and and graced the field inside of a massive white circle, encasing her and Reforge inside.

    "Spellcaster??" Reforge said as he was preparing an incantation.

    "Alchemist." Midna responded clasping both hands together.

    "Lets gooooooo!!!" his mind uttered the words Progenoskes & Fortainbras and the key blades came to him. "Mystokinesis, Tenga-Ryu."




    Reforge released both of his key blades and they suspended around his form moving in accordance to his mind. They hovered just behind his back crossed in an "X" position. He raised his hand to Midna and taunted with a motion to come at him. Holding up that same hand, his palm opened. "Don't go running away...Ruinga." A sliver light rapidly purged into his hand creating tiny silver orb that released from his hand and dropped slowly above her, before inducing a massive explosion.
    "More where that came from!!" he said firing another blast as a few seconds past before the next one was on it's way.


    Midna's raised her hand. "Come, Cedo." purging a red keyblade, she snapped it into the circle creating a red-light the filled the air with it's color and erected pillars of light that tanked the damage of both Ruinga spells. "Crush." From the sides of the pillars massive red arms jettisoned forward collapsing on Reforge from both side.


    "Reflect~!!" Reforge shouted taking stance erecting a barrier bouncing back the physical force to collapse the hands, but they reconstructed as quickly as the recoil hit. "What??"

    "Constant repair, thanks to your spell it can reconstruct by converting the damage it receives to reconstruct itself."

    "Totally cheating! Lets see how you like this!" Reforge pushed both hands outwards towards his Reflect spell, releasing his aura. "Double!"

    Explosions pinged outward completely over taking the arms, and Midna jumped backwards as they would trail back to her position. "He amplified the spells effects and outpaced the reconstruction of the arms. Well alright."

    "Hyper Glide." Reforge emerged through the red explosions like a rocket, both of his key blades floating around him carving out multiple swipes in all manner of direction.

    "Haste x5" The white circles over Midna's body activated and her overall movement speed enhanced to keep up with reforge's mystokinesis.

    The clanging sound of his fortainbras and progenoskes clattered throughout Midna's massive circle against her Cedo. Seems he wasn't just reliant upon spell casts, neither her alchemy exclusively. She swung an uppercut straight up, as both blades broke position and quickly reversed to swing into her knocking her near the circle's outer rim. Midna reached a hand out, her palm glowing to completely stop the sliding of her own momentum. She flipped up and held her side briefly, looking at Reforge.

    "You landed a hit, well done Reffy." She smiled.

    "Oops! Might've been a little too hard there!!" Reforge cheesed hopping in place. "You still wanna do this??"

    She stood in place, her hand on the circle from the floor crafting a red-canon, and pointing Cedo towards Reforge as it charged. "Resolve right? Show us yours." Red lightning channeled from the entire circle into a compressed point at the barrel of the canon.


    "Right!!!" He said happily acknowledging her resolve with his own and using his aura and double skills to their utmost limit. Reforge's physical extended to where you could visibly see light rising from beneath his feet and compressing at the tip of his keyblade. "Zetta Flare!!!"

    Reforge cast with one of his key blades spinning in place to mimic the canon-like construction. The beam compressed, at the very tip of Progenoskes and ushered in a bright light, before ripping through the air like a knife of light. Midna's canon fired on all cylinders and came to collide with the raw power of Reforge's Zetta Flare. The cohesion between the massive bursts of damage seemed unparalleled but the zetta flare pulled ahead slightly. Midna shifted the trajectory intersection of the beams on a vertical but was ultimately obliterated as the circle shattered and the force of both attacks exploding collided in an upward cone animation. Holding in place the wind blew outward towards the rest of the group, kick up one hell of a storm of dust and dirt and the sound of panting from the two of them could be heard. Flying reverse from both sides where Reforge and Midna and they tumbled along into two wicked rolls before finally stopping.

    The master then clasped his hands.

    "I swear. It's like you kids want to destroy half of the field to show off...jeez." The master said scratching the back of his hood. "Well then! Good job Reffy and Midna, I'm really excited to now remove you both for all that collateral damage! Have a seat!"

    He was teasing of course, but if you looked directly up you could see the explosion extend outward high above the stratosphere.

    "Haaaaaaaah! Take that, pew pew!" Reforge rolled along the dirt and pushed himself up, hands on his hips standing triumphantly. "That was SO much fun! Let me go again Master!" he said shaking his head vigorously.

    "Reforge, you nearly blew the dust in our eyes. I think it's time for your nap." Try said folding her arms.

    "Ack!" Reforge grueled, "Not yet! Hey Midna say something to her, she's not my mom!!" Reforge touted with a puffy cheek in response to Try with a tongue sticking out that followed shortly after.

    "He's a pretty damn impressive spell caster. Let him have his fun." She walked over to him taking his hand firmly and walked back towards the group.

    Memory Fragment: Resolve Match#5 [Iontis, Jay]
    Location: The Dorms; Training Field #1
    Time: 12:55PM







    Iontis was on the field this time, holding his Bahamut Arc in his hand and he was looking at the ashes and crispy singes of the blades of grass. Reforge and Midna truly did a number on the training field and he looked up briefly at the sky as the sun hung high over the world of The Dorms. His eyes looked over and he saw Jay stood on the opposite side a few meters away, it didn't take a genius to figure out they were the last two that had yet to go.


    "Motivated this time?" Iontis said picking at Jay who wasn't saying anything.

    Jay turned and slighted his eyes with a turn. There was a fire burning in his eyes, that skeptic, that atypical dissonance he brought to the table didn't exist at the moment. This whole string of matches, since watching one of them hold another down at gunpoint without knowing the outcome, all these things rattled around in his head. Rubbing the side of his short cropped hair, he released a breath and just didn't say anything.

    "Split." he illuminated on a split, one of light, the other or darkness both seeming to fade instantaneously.

    Iontis balled his fist looking to the left and to the right, scanning the area and no Jay to be found. His fist closed, tightening the grip on his bahamut arc, he may not even need the assist of his armor but he'd have to show them, per master's orders. His dark hair blew over his shoulder and he held stance. His ears twitched, hearing the sound of buzzing and then looking straight up. Two key blades were dropping from the sky as if in a motion of free fall, these were Jay and Jaz's Dark Paradise and Redemption key blades.
    Forms from light and darkness burned into existence resting their hands around the grips as two sets of hands slamming hard into Bahamut Arc.

    "So this is Crossroads. Two hearts in one body that can separate at will? You've been holding back number VI."

    Iontis did a bit of a dance backwards parrying the blows of their two-pronged assault. Instantly pulling themselves back together, Jay crossed up Iontis, and dual-wielded both his key blades. Thrusting his right foot behind Iontis' left heel, he pushed forward, shouldering him with a bump. Iontis tripped over the locked heel assailing forward and upward as Jay pointed his Dark Paradise forward.

    "Triple Firaga." Jay swept his key blade throwing three firaga spheres directly colliding into Iontis sending him on high before it exploded in a brilliant light.

    Does this make me less of a coward...Recia?

    "THUNDAZA!"

    A massive quadruple burst of lightning reigned from the sky zapping Jay who stood with a fidget in his step eating the jolt head on. "Ungh..." he grunted jabbing both key blades into the grass.

    Dropping down fast Iontis fell, baring his keyblade armor's second form. Clutching his bahamut arc, he held it like a shield in his hand and approached slowly while Jay was still in a state of stun from the lightning grand magic.

    "You're running away less, I suppose it's a start." Iontis said as his keyblades was transforming into an elongated version of itself. "Don't bother trying to flee, that spell has an adverse effect from my resolve. You'll be neutralized for a few more seconds, so you won't be splitting anytime soo-

    Jay spun around and pressured Iontis back with a string of normal attacks from his graceful dance of dual-wielded strikes. Sure enough, he couldn't use his future sight, split, summoning, or even shape-shifting abilities to tip things in his favor. His raw talent and fighting ability burned like a bon fire as he stringed along a combo of strikes. Two swings came on the vertical upward, separating Iontis from his bahamut arc keyblade, crossing both key blades under his neck in an X-formation.

    The sound and tone of the breath had changed over the course a few moments, it sounded more feminine and Jaz held the key blades in place. With baited breath she pushed the key blades closer to Iontis neck. He dropped his hands slowly and placed it on her shoulder.

    "I think that'll do for now. You have my respect Crossroads." he cleared his throat behind the armor's helm, "I mean, Jaz."

    The key blades lowered and the master dropped both his arms and shouted loudly.

    "ALRIGHT! I think we'll wrap it up with that submission!"

    Jaz fell backward and Iontis took her by the wrist and pulled her up over his shoulder. His armor then decoupled and he was in his standard blue tunic and carried a fatigued Jaz on his shoulder off the field.

    Memory Fragment: Final Resolve [Master of Masters, Luxu, Eth]
    Location: The Dorms; Training Field #1
    Time: 1:15PM






    The master clapped briefly. "Proud of you for your participation in the demonstrations so there should be no mysteries between what you can do. To keep things fair, I'm gonna ask Luxu and Eth to reveal their resolves for real this time."

    Eth stared off the the side and looked at Luxu to whom was shrugging.

    "If you insist Master." Luxu cracked his neck from side to side and stood out. "You sure this is a good idea putting us against-"

    "Me. You'll both be pitted against me. How's that for throwing a wrench in your expectations?"


    "That...might be a bit overkill master..." Eth said nervously, "Luxu and I aren't...well...i guess they'll see for themselves..." Eth sighed.

    "Ethy is right you know, sure you don't wanna reconsider Master?" Luxu extended a palm as he retorted, "Once we get started...As if, we're gonna slow down after that."

    Eth purged the keyblade Luxu had entrusted to him recently in his left hand and standing rather close to Luxu, the normally translucent keyblade could be seen in it's full marvel. The eye towards the blade's very edge standing out the most. Luxu scratched the back of his his hood, a dark swirl of fire burned into his right hand, and to him came the Gazing Eye. Each taking a mirror stance to the other.

    The master plucked a dandelion from the grassy fields as he leaned down and brought it towards his hood. "Some day this will be all of you. Scattering to the winds like the seeds of a dandelion, bringing your light, resolve, and hope to the worlds in dire need of it." he blew into the dandelion and the seeds scattered across the fields being carried on the wind.

    The master clasped his hands loudly as he purged to pure blinding wells of light, one was blue adrift with a white tint, the other yellow adrift with a deep purple tint. In his hands, they were expanding to the size of two bounce houses, titilating on a parallel to the other. Slowly he raised his hands towards the sky and merged the two orbs, caught in between what appeared to be transmutation circles similar to what Midna had demonstrated earlier. The orbs began to fuse and compress until he was holding holding a weapon about the length of his entire body, emblazoned with a heart at it's center and an eye that was no different than the one in Luxu and Eth's key blades.

    "Keyblades can be forged. Light. Darkness. There is no discrimination so long as the wielder bares a powerful heart to carve one forward. Are there such a thing as special key blades? Absolutely, in fact some of you were blessed with those, none the less they all serve the same function." The master whisked the elongated keyblade to the attack position.

    "Another tool that can enact a war or bring about it's end. The wielder decides which. Which will you decide? Let this be your first lesson everyone..." the master swiped forward and carved through the air burgeoning a powerful diagonal slash illuminating with dark chains that whirred along towards Eth and Luxu both.

    The two guarded with their stance, struck at the oncoming blast, Ethernal and The Gazing eye both proved to be quite formidable. They'd slid back a tad before a blade of light formed by Eth came to hit from the top and one of darkness from Luxu from the bottom, effectively snapping the fold in half.

    "Counter-offensive? As if!" Luxu spun his keyblade and pulled in the light surrounding them as it grew darker and darker until he created a range where the light dimmed. "Haaaaahhhhh!!!" a jagged zigzag of light bounced around through the air moving rather quick moving towards the master.

    Without moving, the master lifted his keyblade and smacked the jagged moving particle of light diminishing it's return of power. This let to a multiple string of deflections as it picked up speed between Luxu and Eth returning the beam backwards with a counter-hit and this quickly became a game of badminton.

    "Your tickling my sense of humor you two, why is this so much fun??" the master laughed shattering the beam on his last hit, and splintering it into micro shots that looked like tiny daggers of light being spread like raindrops.

    "Looks like we're screwed." Luxu said holding stance.

    "Stopza!" Eth lifted his hand and tapped Luxu's shoulder as everything suddenly froze in place.

    "Whoa...would you look at that." Luxu whistled in an enamoring fashion, "You totally stopped the flow of time just now. That how you stopped that bullet from entering Komaeda's brain earlier? Same with the meteors right?"

    "....." Eth looked away. "Would you rather we be down multiple resolutes from everyone abandoning self-restraint? None of them seem to think about the others well-being."

    "As if. Trusting you to bail'm out seems like an understanding to me. Not that I'm complaining if any of you live or die. It matters more what you do amongst each other. Now come on, the master gonna-"

    "How long do I have to pretend like I'm frozen in time??" the master's voice from his body suddenly started to talking. His shoulders dropped, and he rubbed them as they were stiff from all the standing still.

    Eth's swords of light quickly formed and slammed into the master's attack cross-clashing to neutralize the other, as time slowly started to pick up and the sound effects rippled across the field. The master zipped across the field, gripping Luxu by the hood and throwing him towards the sky.

    "Luxu!!" Eth touted before the master spun butting him in the chest with a jab from his keyblade and throwing him into his partner.

    "You won't have time to mourn when the end comes. The darkness will never stop coming, and you'll be faced with even harder decisions to make." There was an explosion and the two resolute fell like ragdolls from the sky. The master's keyblade boasted a powerful apparatus, transforming into a canon mounted over his shoulder's in a similar way Iontis utilized his Bahamut Arc, and a powerful collection of light forming into a beam-like conjuration expelled from the canon.

    Eth grabbed Luxu's hand and spun him around to wrap around the Master as he fell. Luxu free-fell downward with a swiped upward to knock the trajectory of the beam that would've annihilated Eth in one fail swoop. It shuffled past the resolute gaining his baring to move instantly toward the last place he was standing on the ground. He tackled the master as Luxu was reeling back for a second swing.

    "Tch. Don't get in the way Ethy!" Luxu said holding off on his cross-slash follow up.

    As Eth and the master tumbled to the ground, Luxu stood over them both. There was a tight hug on the master from Eth, and a sense of connection as the tackle quickly turned into something of a hug from his pupil. The master released the hand holding his keyblade and stroked Eth's head. While giving Luxu a gesture of no resistance.

    "That'll do you two. I suppose we can call it for today." there was a brief laugh from the master as he lay there with his student a while longer and the rest of them collapsed from the sidelines to generate a large circle around the three of them.

    "We're done for today everyone, head over to the dining hall by 4 after you've rotated showers, I've got something to tell you all there."

    Memory Fragment: 8.9 [ALL]
    Location: The Dorms; Dining Hall
    Time: 4PM





    The dining hall was buzzing with conversation this time around. It'd roughly been over a week, but today's escalation of training seemed to give each of them perspective in it's own way. The master proceeded to respond in kind to oblige their kindness that actually seemed genuine. As he took his usual spot at the head of the table, the chatter quickly dispersed as he took a spoon and tapped his glass.

    "Settle down everyone. Thank you all for choosing to stay this time and not abandoning the table. Ahem, all of try and Iontis both." his call out encouraged some snickering from Komaeda and Reforge.

    Clearing his throat he spoke with precision, "Your participation today was better than I could have hoped for. As you should well know by now, each person in this room to whom is not your partner is to be considered your ally, dare I even go so far as to say your friend. That friend you will come to find in each person here, should persist through in through."

    He tugged down on his hood and exhaled.

    "I know this will not be an easy road for many of you, I know of much of your histories, grueling and down right cruel experiences from most of you here. I only ask that you share that vulnerability over time and build connections with your comrades. It isn't my place to force anyone here to operate outside their safe spaces and self-security, but it would lend strength to your heart to remember the fine line between the roles some of your will operate under and where your heart itself resides on the matter. Listen carefully..."

    The shift in his tone grew feverishly serious.

    "May your heart be your guiding key." he placed his hand on his chest before dispersing arms comedically outward, "I say it all the time. You ultimately need to do whatever your heart feel is right, but understand the consequences of such actions well before you cast such judgement. Conflicting with your own ideals or even principles, morals, or duties I've tasked you with, there must exist some form of counter-weight in your decision-making."

    The master snapped his fingers, a light protruded off the bodies of each of the resolutes.

    "When you accepted Omni and made it your own, your resolve, you invoked a promise to inherit my will. Understand that the brands that appear randomly across your form speaks of loyalty to that conviction, to my will. Should the day arise when that brand no longer exists...well...so too shall you perish and your resolve or fragment of Omni will return to me, even if I am gone."

    The room was silent, some eyes were widened and unmoving from the master's position and fidgeted nervously.

    "W-w-what?? Don't give me that look! I'm kidding about you vanishing! No, it's not that you will perish, but you will essentially be abandoning your beliefs that made you worthy to inherit omni in the first place. The heart can waver, some of you i've given roles to ensure that you do not stray from the path I've set to guide you on, as for the others that I have not given a role to, you are to facilitate and balance your comrades with roles without the burden of structure and heavy conviction. You see, you are much different in being...well, how do I say this."

    He took up a position of deep thought briefly before he continued.

    "Your kindness is a welcome invitation to those with task that shouldn't be underestimated. It may come out strange, Komaeda's obsession with pushing you all to the absolute limit for example, is a way to motivate you and keep you determined. All done without a roadmap, because you believe in your heart to be right, I won't say that your misguided, the brand vanishing from you or not will let you know if your breaking any rules or not. Considering two of you almost caught a bullet today, i'd say that qualifies as right by way of honoring my will."

    He chuckled, then what the hell qualified as not honoring his will.

    "Betrayal." he folded his arms behind his back. "Is completely unacceptable and by no means would I recommend you turn against each other. You can disagree, you can take up arms against each other, hell you did it today, but the heart will determine on what basis you do these things. For malicious intent, for treachery, for unnatural gains to benefit you while denouncing another, all things that defile my will, that mark will fade."

    That one. Is worthy to lead. his final thought was silent.

    He raised his glass.

    "We will be leaving this world to take live classes being held on the Cul-De-Sac world in two weeks. There are things about that world, about the keyblade, about certain techniques that i've taught the children there that I must teach you and those grounds are more fitting to facilitate all of it. In the meantime you can wander about as you please and check the bulletin board in the lobby for your assignments and group tasks, it will be updated daily for your convenience."

    The Master cleared his throat and spoke at length.

    "You will always be asked to sign off and date and time your start and completion as per usual. All completed task are to be removed from the bulletin board and placed on filing cabinet next to it for me to review before posting your next set of assignments to be completed the following day. If you ever come across an empty board, it means all twelve of you are off that day. If you ever see a single piece of paper on the board, it should give you instruction on a meeting or set of announcements akin to this. I've taken enough of your time for now, the board will be empty tomorrow, so try to relax everyone. You're dismissed."

    [Author's Pow Wow#2]

    *Wipes away bead of sweat*

    Now that I've gotten demonstrations of a majority of the casts "resolve" out of the way time for a some break down explanations. In this world I've assembled if you read the previous post about "Omni" in the actual roleplay this is what is known as a resolve. Your resolve is your unique and quite frankly blatantly over-powered skillset as a character that manifests on of the above aspects listed in my previous Pow Wow.

    Resolves
    (as per the role-player's who represent these characters in the thread currently):

    The Current Casted Resolutes Templates can be found [HERE].

    ??? - The Master of Masters
    [The Almighty]
    The Master is able to freely utilize the existing components of his disciples at will, and even taking it a bit further. However unlike the others the key component of his resolve is the bestowal and removal of "omni" IE: The Almighty's main trait. This essentially means the master can at will bestow or grant the user a component of Omni that matches the resolve they are compatible with. This also means he can at will, remove the specific component of Omni from the user indefinitely. The Almighty in utilizing the resolves of his students is by no means anywhere near as potent as their control over their resolves. Finally par for the course, the master has incredible foresight, utilizing the eyes of the world embedded in multiple of his resolutes keyblade, over the course of several centuries he's foreseen the future, the fate of reality, and many other components. When the master speaks confidently that an event will transpire and says it is "unavoidable" this is to be taken as fact. The limits to the master's foresight were first introduced as he speaks with an unknown enemy (in the roleplay) and admits "even I don't know what will happen." and proceeds to trust the actions of the resolutes he's trained.

    ∞ - Luxu
    [Continuum]
    Luxu has an interesting skill set compared the other resolutes. He is currently the only resolute now that exist who can freely use multiple different variations of both light and darkness. In a sense it like this [see below]

    [Darkness]------[Dawn]------>[Light]
    [Darkness]<------[Dusk]-------[Light]
    [Darkness]------>[Twilight]<------[Light]

    Just as a base example.

    Effectively, he and Eth are polar opposites of each other. Where as Eth utilizes and embodies both time and memories as a variation of light/eternity, Luxu unquantifiabley embodies a resolve that is infinity/perfect zero/endlessness in that of space, it's content, and all things that inhabit. Using variations of light and darkness in their most physical sense, creating areas, portals and gateways, even amassing attacks that cannot be stopped by even Eth's time resolve depending on how they're made. His preference ultimately dabbles in darkness and the many variations he is able to call fort, generating pocket areas that can absorb massive amounts of light.

    10 - Midna
    [Celestial Transmutation]

    (Given that Midna like the Master and Luxu is an NPC, here is an official explanation of her resolve as well.)

    Midna is the 10th resolute chosen by the master and boasts an innate talent of using alchemy that isn't bound to any set of rules or restrictions when constructing matter. It requires here to have a thoroughly and methodical understanding of materials, their strengths and weaknesses and she can then proceed to construct the material. Any physical piece of matter that Midna touches, can activate her resolve and she is able to freely adjust and change the composition of the object or surface. These interactions work a bit differently with resolutes as she's demonstrated possessing the skill to forge key blades from the wielder's heart via touch. Midna can also amplify a key blade's power, as strong as key blades are in general, even they can be shattered or deemed unusable.

    She is the only resolute on record that can repair broken key blades. In addition to powering up a key blades durability, she can effectively increase the attack power and magical potency of key blades, even going so far as to amplify limits when used with a resolutes partner. As a resolute she is no stranger to weaponizing light using her transmutation circles, this light can be purged red when she's charging it to it's max potency. Midna additionally is skilled with the application of minor buffs drawn on herself and allies by marking them with a transmutation circle. Any allies within a circle can receive the benefit of a mobile buff such as barrier, reflect, haste, and empower.

    Loosing your resolve.

    Now this is important because it becomes pivotal. Each resolute when they received Omni to forge their resolve, a brand or number appeared somewhere on their body. This mark/brand is acknowledgement of the master's will, that the master chose a resolute and tasked them with a responsibility, an aspect of omni to uphold indefinitely or til they perish.

    In real life, specifically in our society we have our instances where people break promises, break hearts, break or disrupt rules. Resolutes by their very nature, have a belief complex so strong and they commit to those principles, set of beliefs and is that which makes them worthy to be a resolute.

    How do I lose my resolve?
    If I do, is it gone indefinitely?


    You can lose your resolve by choosing to abandon your role.
    You can lose your resolve by choosing to abandon what you believe in that deemed you worthy
    You can lose your resolve by death
    You can lose your resolve by using it against another resolute if it violates your resolve.
    Indefinitely? It returns to the master of masters whence it came.

    Example: If Komaeda's resolves to empower his friends by being a controversial be it by the most extreme or subtle means, and that is his belief, choosing to fight his fellow resolutes under this condition if it is believed it will boost their current abilities, morale, or even hopes, this does not violate his personal resolve that made him worthy.

    If Komaeda tries to destroy his fellow resolutes and abandons the very idea of helping them through his actions and believes to the utmost extremes in their peril or just the idea of killing them unjustly, his resolve will vanish, the mark will fade, and he will lose his resolve indefinitely.

    Nothing will kill you faster than going against you initial belief. Nothing will kill you faster than being unable to understand and realize that while these characters develop and ultimately change, forgetting what makes you worthy, will in return make you worthless.
