Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Renegades of FateOn a world covered in a poisonous mist known as the Miasma. It can only be repelled by giant crystals. However these crystals must be powered by the water of life, given by Myrrh trees. The five tribes of Clavat, Yuke, Lilty, Selkie and Moogle band together in villages centered around the crystals. They have sent Crystal Caravans to retrieved the myrrh using the crystal chalice.
The villages have not just suffered at the hand of the monsters lurking in the mist, but the Cult of the Red Moon had broken the people's will with an iron fist. After one thousand years, a caravan went to war with them… and won. The Tipa Caravan.
This however is not their story. This is the Story of the Tipa Caravan that came after them, and the three Keyblade wielders that would follow them.
Prologue : My Name is Nina Zari Hawkeye!
In the village of Tipa, it was that time of year again. The time had come for a new crystal caravan to be sent out into the world to claim the water of life. Normally Tipa would have a strong caravan ready for action, however a wicked man had wormed his way into the village, and slowly did away with them, one by one. Now after many Tipa villagers had barley come back to life, a new team had been chosen. Dawn had not yet shown it's face
Our first member is in the less unfortunate part of the Lilty district. Inside a small hut, a young, small lilty woman was dressed in a short, black dress, which was covered in a white apron. She was fidgeting with her light green hair. Her black eyes glanced at a brown sack in her right hand.
She put it aside and opened a door. In the room, the woman found two girls sleeping in a warm bed. She smiled, and looked at the two children. A sleeping messy red haired lilty girl and a long blue haired selkie girl.
"Nina, oh Nina! Time to wake up sleepy head." The woman's child-like voice said in a sing song tone.
She noticed Nina's pointed ears started to twitch.
"Ten-Ten, sweetheart, wake up." The woman requested.
"M-Momma, I don't wanna get up." Ten-Ten whimpered.
The Selkie girl known as Nina's green eyes were now wide open.
"GAH! I'm up, Tabby, I'm up!" Nina yelled, forcing Ten-Ten out of the bed.
The lilty girl opened her eyes, as her taller sister jumped out of the bed.
"I'm late, I'm late, I can't be late!" Nina gasped. The girl was picking up her clothes that were scattered across the floor. The lilties smiled at the child who was two feet taller than they were.
"Nina, silly, you're not late. The Caravan won't leave for two hours." She said."Now come on you two, breakfast is ready."
Tabby dragged Ten-Ten and Nina out of their room. Both were dressed in white night gowns and rubbing the sleepy tight out of their eyes. Nina and Ten-Ten were now sitting on a small rug, looking at a few plates of eggs, bread and fruit.
Tabby smiled as a lilty man walked into the room.
"Tim Tabby, I was gonna call you." She said.
The man gave Tabby a kiss as he sat down. He shared Ten-Ten's red hair, however his was in a buzz cut style, and much to his wife's dismay a goatee was on his chin. He wore a simple black shirt and matching pants. His grey eyes met Nina's while Ten-Ten's black eyes were glazing at their food. Tabby sat down.
"Morning girls." Tim grunted.
"Morning Tim." Nina said grinning.
"Morning Papa!" Ten-Ten spoke in the utmost cheerful tone.
"Okay everyone… This is gonna be our last meal together before Nina joins the Crystal Caravan to bring back Myrrh for our crystal. So I want us all to pray." Tabby spoke.
The three lilties and selkie joined hands. Nina gazed at the right wall, looking at a cross nailed to the wall.
"Dear Lord, Holy Father in Heaven, please protect our caravan. Keep them safe and out of the monsters sight and guide them to the water of life. Let Ibluis be struck down for his lies, and have Nina bring back our lost Sash. Amen." Tabby prayed.
"I really wish you wouldn't have added the Ibluis thing, Honey." Tim had warned his wife.
"Oh hush, none of his cronies are out right now." Tabby stated.
"Thanks for the prayer, Tabby. I'm sure Dad would have loved it." Nina stated, while eating.
"If your Father were alive that prayer would have taken all day." Tim muttered, causing the selkie girl to growl an annoyed sound.
"Okay, lets not fight." Tabby said. "Tim, didn't you have something for her?" Tabby asked.
The man who had finished eating, stood up. He went to their bedroom and came back with a long black case. Nina's eyes widened a bit.
"Tim… is that... from you black smith shop?" The girl asked.
He handed her the case.
"Well you are going to be on the caravan, so you're going to need a weapon. Normally I would be against a woman needing something like this, however I don't want to lose another family member." Tim stated.
Nina examined the case, and opened it up to see a black colored sword. The blade itself was more of a cold, black and gray color. She gave it a closer look, finding writing craved onto it. While the blade looked like a katana, there was a cross craved into the handle. Nina picked it up, and to her confusion: it was as light as a feather.
"Tim… this is from your black smith shop." Nina stated.
"Poppa, is that Uncle's sword?" Ten-Ten asked, gazing at Nina's blade.
"No, but it is my best recreation of the blasted thing. Nina, I know a sword is more of a clavat weapon, so if you wanted more of a selkie-" The lilty started to say
"I love it!" Nina interrupted, putting the sword back in the case then, she hugged and picked up the small man.
"Glad you like it, now put me down." He ordered.
Smiling, Nina put her caretaker down. Tabby had then came up to her with the bag she had hold of earlier. She and her daughter both opened the bag up, revealing a thick book to the selkie girl.
Nina slowly took it, feeling the paper with her fingers. She opened it, scanning nothing but empty pages.
Ten-Ten poked her, as she looked up, her best friend had given her a quill.
"Is this… my own chronicle?" Nina asked.
The two nodded.
"I know how much you and Ten-Ten love to come up with stories. So I got some extra gill and got you it. The quill is also magic, no ink." Tabby explained.
"I LOVE YOU ALL!" Nina shouted, grabbing the three lilites into a bear hug.
After a half hour, Nina was fully dressed. She wore a light blue fur top and a matching short fur skirt. She had finished tying her sandals in place and with her new sword tied behind her back she was ready. She had given them one last hug before she had to leave.
"I promise I'll find him. I'll bring Sash back home, and I'll find so much gill, that it'll pay Dad's debt off ten times over!' Nina promised.
Ten-Ten looked at Nina right in the windows of her soul.
"I know you can do it." Ten-Ten said, as the girl left home to start her journey.
