Kalista
Well met! I’m Kalista, and I co-admin Istari with my husband, Arius. We've run a few other sites together, from an old west Supernatural roleplay to a Tron Legacy board, but Istari is our first original creation. It was originally adapted as a D&D campaign setting for a group of friends, but I always loved the idea of mixing magic and technology to get both a classic and urban fantasy feel. I still enjoy playing tabletop D&D, but these days I tend to spend more time on writing and online roleplay.

Along with avid writing comes avid reading, and I always have at least one book going. I tend to bounce back and forth between urban or high fantasy and science fiction, but I also enjoy crime novels and a handful of the classics. I also love gaming on the Playstation and Nintendo 3DS. I love a wide variety of games, but the original Mass Effect trilogy is nearest and dearest to my heart.

I tend to be online from midday to late evening, depending on my work schedule, and I usually lurk throughout the day. I love working with coding and graphics, so if you’re having trouble with something or have questions about the setting, feel free to message me or hop into the chat box. I’m always open to feedback, and I hope you enjoy playing in Istari as much as I’ve enjoyed working on it!

Arius
Heyla! I'm Arius, one of the admins here on Istari, and Kalista's lucky husband. I love writing (obviously), especially horror, fantasy, and sci fi, though I've been known to dabble in poetry and even fanfiction in the past. Though I don't seem to find the time for them as much as I used to, I enjoy playing games, both video and tabletop, and if I'm not around on the site it's probably because I'm playing my PS4 or 3DS.

I'm a great devourer of all sorts of literature, from high fantasy epics to dry historical tales, from fiction to non-fiction, and even comic books, which I have a huge passion for. I co-own a small comic shop in my hometown, which is something of a dream come true for me, and I've been collecting and reading comics and graphic novels since I was about five years old.

I'm usually around in the evenings to answer questions, play in the cbox, or even just shoot the breeze, so feel free to hit me up if you ever need anything!

Kay
Hey there! I’m Kay, Istari's moderator, and it’s nice to meet you! I’ve been roleplaying and writing for more than ten years and have been playing on Istari for about the whole time that it’s been open. I’ve known Kali and Arius for almost ten years now and actually got my online handler name from Arius. I’m a frequent writer and I do get distracted relatively easily as I’m always on social media sites. But currently I’ve been distracted with watching TV shows.

I’m an avid TV watcher ranging from Supernatural all the way to anime and nostalgia TV shows. Currently I’ve gotten myself stuck on Gargoyles. I’m also a classic anime fan, I’ve seen some of the newer animes, but the classics are my favorite. I’m also into a lot of superhero movies and horror movies, but movies in general are the things that I’m doing if I’m not writing.

I used to be a night owl, but given my 4am work schedule, I can be found lurking around here at high noon to about early evening, I’m a lurker so there will always definitely be someone there to answer your questions! Welcome to Istari!

Detective Murphy stood on the other side of the mirror, tucked underneath his left arm was a vanilla folder thick with paper work, in his other hand his work phone. His blue eyes watched the woman on the other end. She was sitting facing the glass, her hair tied back into a pony tail terribly with loose strands hanging all over the place. There was some soot on her cheeks, a small scratch above her brow and her clothes were dirty and probably saw better days than this one. They had her hands cuffed to the top of the table that were chain linked to her feet that were also cuffed.

He had heard about this woman, and still he couldn’t believe that she was sitting in his station right now. Adeline Morray was probably one of the worst criminals to come into his town, and he’s seen some pretty nasty ones, but there was just something that he couldn’t wrap his mind around. How could this one tiny woman – who looked like she would fall over if you blew on her – could be on of the FBI’s most wanted? She’s killed countless people, including her own family, and ruined the lives of thousands more.

Except there was something else about her that he just didn’t understand. She had a wrap sheet that could go on for miles, but she risked her life to save one of his officers after his car exploded. A car that she had rigged to explode. She ran into the flames to drag his body out, then attend to his wounds, all before she was arrested. Then when she was brought here, she asked about the condition of the office.

Adeline Morray was one of the biggest mysteries that Detective Murphy had ever seen, and he couldn’t wait till he got the FBI here to take her out.

Adeline sat in the uncomfortable chair with her eyes clothes and head hanging down, quietly chanting to herself that things were going to be okay. She was going to get out of this like she always did. However, the probability of her escaping without killing anyone was most like slime to none. Already her powers had exploded nearly killing an innocent office who was just asking her if she wanted something warm to eat. The first time that an officer had ever been nice to her, she went ahead and blew up his car. She never wanted to hurt him, she didn’t want to hurt anyone. All Adeline wanted in life was to be alone so that people were safe from her and her powers.

She let out a soft sigh, then scooted her chair out a bit to rest her forehead on the edge of the table. Her mind raced with everything that could go wrong in this moment, which in turn made her heart race and beat as if it was going to burst from her chest. At the same time though she could feel her lungs tightening; it was getting harder to breathe.

Then the table started to rattle.

“Please don’t, no… come on, calm down…” Adeline whispered to herself. She clenched her eyes shut then pressed her forehead harder against the cold table.

Jordan had received a few unusual assignments in her years as a forensic artist for the FBI, but this had to be one of the strangest. It sounded like local law enforcement had almost literally stumbled over one of the FBI’s most wanted criminals, and arguably the most unassuming included in the list. She was curious to find out the details of how it had happened, but they would have to wait for another time and a little privacy.

The Bureau was sending a special team to transport the dangerous criminal to a facility where they could properly process and question her, but in the meantime Jordan had been instructed to make herself available to local law enforcement and protect the FBI’s interests there until the team arrived. Basically, it was her job to pave the way and make sure everything ran smoothly; not something she was used to doing, but as she’d been in the relatively near the area already, her superiors thought it would be no bad thing to send someone as soon as possible. She just hoped it wouldn’t turn into the stereotypical dick measuring competition so widely portrayed on TV. This was an important and potentially sensitive undertaking for the Bureau, and she was certain the potential fallout if something was mishandled could easily end a career.

She wasn’t wild about the assignment, but she had to admit she was curious about what sort of underlying mentality she’d find in Morray. With her large, startled hazel eyes, she certainly didn’t give the impression of a coldhearted killer, let alone one who was responsible for a swath of brutal killings. Contrary to what she’d expected to find, the girl’s body language was completely shut down and submissive, far from the cold detachment, anger, or smug confidence she’d expected. She had a feeling this girl was either very unstable or a very, very accomplished actress.

Jordan’s eyes left the brunette reluctantly as she stepped past the mirrored window and lightly rapped on the door to the interrogation room. The detective inside seemed equally inclined to keep an eye on the young woman, only letting his gaze slip away from her at the last moment as he opened the door and stepped outside. It didn’t take long to get the quiet introductions out of the way, and if Detective Murphy was planning on making her stay unpleasant, he was limiting his behavior to wary observation for the time being. Jordan could live with that.

The interrogator had just stepped forward to follow him into the room when she heard an odd rumble. It took her a moment to pinpoint the noise and realize it was coming from the table in the center of the room before the one-way glass started to shudder as well, rattling in its frame. Jordan grabbed the door frame, glancing around in alarm as the empty chairs joined the fray, vibrating themselves toward the door where the two law enforcers stood. The wooden frame under Jordan’s hand, however, remained eerily steady as the tremors radiated out into the observation room, and it occurred to her that they were awfully far outside the typical earthquake range.

Something else was going on here, and as the telepath felt the faintest mental brush against her shields, her eyes snapped to the tiny girl before her, the brutal killings she’d been accused of suddenly making sickening sense.

She could hear the foot steps of Detective Murphy and the interrogator head towards the door. That could only mean one thing, and that one thing being that the FBI had finally arrived. Minutes passed by like centuries; with each ticking second, Adeline’s head started to hurt immensely as she tried to control her powers about to burst out of control.

The exchange of footsteps was caught in her ears. It felt like the dragged on forever, with each step that was taken, the more her head pounded and the more her powers radiated. Adeline could feel the table rumble, the mirror vibrate, and the hanging lights above her started to sway back and forth. She could feel the build up in her powers touch the ceiling, about to pop one of the lightbulbs till she felt something hit her like a ton of bricks.

Her powers had pressed up against someone’s mental shields, and it caught her attention quickly. Her head lifted from the table to come face to face with who she assumed was the FBI agent here to speak with her. Luckily it wasn’t someone on the special task force specifically assigned to her, but a part of her told her that it wasn’t going to be them anyway. None of them had mental shields like that. Something that strong came from someone who trained and took care of their powers; someone who might be able to help.

But a part of her got curious. What was a psychic doing working in the FBI? Was she secretly using them to aid them? Or was it just a side job for her? Adeline remembered a time that her grandmother told her about psychics that had adapted to the normalcy of non-psychic life; some of them even able to suppress their powers or use them in short bursts. Something that she was trying to teach young Addie before Amon possessed her.

As soon as Adeline made eye contact with Jordan, everything stopped. There seemed like there was an immediate understanding that the two of them knew what was going on, and it made Adeline relax. But behind Jordan she could see the terrified and confused looks on Detective Murphy and the interrogator that he had wit him. It took a few moments for either one of them to say something, but Detective Murphy put his hand to mouth and cleared his throat to put all eyes on him.

“Ahem… I believe we just experienced an earthquake… I’ll have her transported into a safer room for you Agent Asher.”

Addie moved her eyes from Detective Murphy to Jordan, silently pleading to be moved further away from anything or anyone that could be breakable.
