[It's sunny, snowless, and warm -- odd adjectives for a winter day in Luceti. But if the shifted Christmas decorations on all the buildings didn't tip someone off to the true season, certainly the sprigs of mistletoe popping up everywhere would.

At this point, Pao-Lin can practically draw a photographic image of the parasitic plant from memory; she's just seen so much of it. Such things happen when a girl makes it a point to zap any mistletoe she can spot as she goes for her usual run around the village. Though she doesn't harbor a hatred for the plant the way other Lucetians seem to do, it gives her a little more purpose in her days for the moment. It's kind of fun, in a way, like a game. One with awkward consequences if she loses, but by some stroke of luck she's managed to miss out on mistletoe misery thus far.

That being said, there is one person she wouldn't mind being stuck under the mistletoe with. But she hardly needs an excuse to kiss him.]

[Hubert is typically the more level-headed of the two Lhant brothers, but sometimes his own sacrificial streak rivals Asbel's.

Tonight, for instance, he's snuck out alone to deal with the witch that's taken up residence along North Lhant Road, snaring hapless travelers in her labyrinth. Normally he wouldn't take such an action without backup, but the only two viable backups in this case (Asbel and Sophie) are dangerously close to full Soul Gem corruption and the last witch they fought didn't drop any Grief Seeds at all. And the non-magical members of their party would only be liabilities in the end, their attacks doing spotty damage at best to even a mere familiar. No, it's best if Hubert can focus his attention solely on defeating the witch, rather than worrying about someone else on the battlefield with him.

(Having Malik, Richard, Cheria, or Pascal join the magical retinue is out of the question. Not with what they all just found out about those who contracted with Kyubey.)

He's taken some precautions, of course. He left a note at the manor stating that he was out doing reconnaissance north of town. He fully expects Asbel and/or Sophie to come out after him once they find the note, but he's planning on having things mostly under control by then.

Said plans have run into a little bit of a snag.

Saretha is more powerful than he expected, her main form able to attack from multiple directions simultaneously. Fortunately, the magical powers granted to Hubert by Kyubey allow him to create functioning clones of himself to deal with multidirectional assaults as well as the familiars roaming around the labyrinth. Unfortunately, his total attack power is spread across every clone he creates; the more clones there are, the weaker each one is (and his own power declines as well). Hubert only has one other copy of himself assisting him at the moment for this reason -- but he's thinking of recalling the clone to regain his full strength. At the rate things are going, he'll need all the firepower he can get.

For now, however, Hubert and his clone fight their way through killer diamond rings with their trusty (magically-enhanced) dualblades.]

This is a catchall post for Hubert. Any threads specifically for him can go here!

[Well. Babysitting a toddler isn't exactly how Hubert had planned to spend his morning, but it's far from the worst thing to interrupt his daily routine. At the very least, Sophie is supposed to be a well-behaved child (or so Pao-Lin had mentioned once), so he's hoping to salvage some productivity by reading while watching her.

So here he is at House 34, armed with a suitably thick book. Prepare to meet your linefaced match, Sophie Coolidge.]

[As Pao-Lin wanders through the streets of Luceti, there are quite a number of questions on her mind. Things like, how did she get here? What is this place? Why does she have wings?

And where's Hubert?

This last one comes primarily from the fact that she's pretty sure she remembers falling asleep on the couch at his house the night before. Did he get dragged to where this place is, too? She's not sure whether she wants that to be true or not. It'd be nice not to be alone, but...he deserves to be safe at home. She's the Hero, not him: she'll deal with danger and protect him.

Not that Luceti seems all that dangerous, being the kind of homey village that it is. But it's unfamiliar, and so Pao-Lin keeps her gaze sharp and observant, keeping an eye out for threats...or her best friend.]

[There's a familiar girl walking the streets of Luceti today with an intense, focused expression, newly returned from her mallynapping. But those who know her will quickly realize that something is very off. Very, very off.

The more innocuous difference is that she's taller, with longer hair and a more mature face, though she still wears her yellow-and-black striped jumpsuit. She's also toting around a katana -- an odd choice, considering her weapon of choice as a Hero.

Ah...Heroes and HeroTV. That's where things start to get interesting with this one. If you come up and talk to her, maybe you'll find out just how interesting they are.]
