"Huh.... I thought it would be weirder."
"It can. It means change will play a big part in his life. He's the sort of person who changes things. You've got a vision of the way things should be, and you're determined to change the world to match."
"Well, I'm definitely going to do my best. We all will."
He nods, "And... if I were to interpret yours," he tells Heri, "I'd guess that you know what's right, and you'll endure hardship to make it so. Honour and certainty and endurance. It's pretty open to interpretation, though, and I'm not the best Prime for figuring out which interpretation it is."
"Makes sense. And I am attached to these two and really hot."
"Uh, yeah, I guess- I mean," he pauses, shrugs, "That sounds about right."
Snort. "So what does being Sweela mean, anyway?"
"Sweela's associated with fire and mind - those are the powers the Sweela Prime gets. We're... creative and emotional and intelligent and extroverted, and have awful tempers. Or at least, that's the stereotype. I'm not sure I'd call myself extroverted, and I'm supposed to be the Sweela. So take that with a grain of salt."
"Are those categories fixed? I mean, does Sweela-ness ever changes over time?"
"As far as I can tell, no. The elements have been the same for as log as they've existed - which is longer than we have records."
"What being Hunti or Elay mean?"
"Hunti's wood and bone, stubborn, confident, sure, brave. It's hard to change a Hunti's mind. Elay's air and soul, they're happy and kind and insightful, but tend to have their heads in the clouds."
"So... I am a air-headed beauty. Nice."
"Uh, I guess? They're stereotypes," he reminds them.
"Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason."
"Kenta is not exactly the kind of person to take this sort of things seriously, anyway... thank you. Do you think there is anything we could do for you?"
"...That crystal magic. Can you share it?"
"Oh, we can. We are more stringy about sharing empowered crystals, but we might trade those as well."
"I'd appreciate it. We're... in the middle of a crisis back home, and we could really use more magic users than just the Primes."
"What kind of crisis?"
"...The King's shit. He's got enough support that we can't just remove him from power, though, and our rulers are made immune to the Primes' powers when they're coronated."
"Huh. This is why most places change to democracies. ...but not the point. We will teach you."
And he gives him a summary of crystal magic.
"You won't get any arguments from me there," he says.
He pays close attention, and proves to be a quick learner.
"Did you want to try drawing blessings yourselves, now that you can?" He asks absently once he's gotten the hang of the basics, staring thoughtfully crystal beneath the skin on the back of his hand.
Heri draws a travel for Tobir and a Loyalty for Kenta.
Tobir reaches into the pile next, and draws a Travel for Kenta, and a Determination for Heri.
