It was raining heavily in Mondstadt on the night that Kaeya Alberich received his Vision.
Earlier that day, Crepus Ragnvindr had wielded the power of a Delusion â only to become its victim when it backfired. To set his father free from the unbearable agony, Diluc Ragnvindr took his life.
Kaeya was Diluc's brother by adoption and was always by his side, but on this occasion, Kaeya did not partake in the final moments shared between father and son.
The torrential rain that set in on Mondstadt that night seemed to be a sign of the heavens' grief at the passing of Master Crepus.
There was a side to Kaeya that he kept hidden from the world: In truth, he was an agent of Khaenri'ah, placed in Mondstadt to serve their interests. His father had abandoned him in this strange and unknown land to fulfill his mission, and it was Master Crepus and the city of Mondstadt that had welcomed him with open arms when they found him.
If Khaenri'ah and Mondstadt went to war, which side should he support? To whom should he offer his assistance: his birth father, who had ruthlessly abandoned him? Or his adoptive father, who loved him and raised him?
For the longest time, Kaeya had agonized over these impossible questions, caught between the opposing demands of loyalty and duty, faced with an impossible choice between truth and happiness.
But now, Crepus' death upset this delicate balance. He felt liberated, but also ashamed of how selfishly he was responding.
As an adopted son, he should have saved Crepus, but he had arrived moments too late. As a brother, he should have shared in Diluc's grief, and yet as their father lay dying on the ground he had hung back behind his brother, that ancient plot running through his mind.
Consumed by guilt, Kaeya knocked on Diluc's door. As the rain poured down, the shroud of secrecy was washed away, all lies were revealed. Kaeya had finally come clean.
He had anticipated Diluc's anger.
The brothers drew their blades, this time pointing them at each other. Kaeya felt that this was his punishment for a lifetime of lies. But as the two crossed blades, Kaeya was overcome by the sensation of great elemental power surging through him. For years, he had stayed out of the way in his brother's shadow. But now, for the first time ever, he was facing his brother as his true self.
Bitterly cold and brittle elemental energy burst forth from the tip of his sword to meet Diluc's searing flames head-on. The clash of crimson fire and azure ice created a sudden swirl of wind that stunned them both. This was the grim moment at which Kaeya's Vision appeared.
Since that day, Kaeya and Diluc have gone their separate ways. But he never discusses it, just as he never discusses the origin of his Vision.
Though it is a reminder of the hard-fought battle, and the prize that he earned in exchange for revealing the unadulterated truth, Kaeya sees it as a stern reminder that he must live the rest of his life under the heavy burden of lies.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Well, if isn't kaeya of mondstadt. Pleasure finally getting this chance to finally reach out to you. I have no excuses for drifting away a lot. But im finally now getting around to face the endeavors into becoming friends / discussing storylines whatever you fancy.Â But I am looking forward what directions it leads. so respond back if you're up for discussing / chatting.Â so take care until then.
Funny you should mention that series. It has been playing all day in my house today, haha. Ah yes, the servers on discord. I am in two but only active in one. Which mainly consists on me giving Diluc sh*t. So I completely understamd.~
i like the idea you gave for our roleplay! perhaps it's a evil sprit that keeps causing trouble but flees each time Chongyun arrives. and eventually we will et to the point that Kaeya will help Chongyun out catching it..especially if this spirit keeps causing trouble at Mondstadt, i think this sounds already really interesting to do! :) then let us do all of them!Â
Shhh, I was half asleep when I messaged you back. So, I don't even remember what exactly I said to you. So pleaaaase forgive me, lmao. I am actually emabarrassed as hell right now. If you would like ... Traveler#4304
I must admit that the idea of that does sound rather interesting.~ Forgive me, my mood has been dwindled a little at the moment so I currently have no ideas. I just didnât want to make you wait any longer than you have already. Though I am rather laid back. I think it just depends on which timeline we want to go with.
''My name is Chongyun. My family has practiced the art of exorcism inÂ LiyueÂ for many generations. Fate has been generous in allowing my path cross with that of your distinguished self. ...Oh noâ my services are free of charge!''
Hi! how are you? i want to thanks you for accepting my friend inviteÂ :) are you maybe interested in discussing a plot for a roleplay? but we could also just talk or banter if that has your preference so don't be shy to let me know what you up for! i really am looking forward to hear back from you but no pressure in replying back to me! take all the time you need, i hope you will have a great day :D
I personally like the idea of Kaeya dazzlingly coming in to saveÂ Razor, maybe from Abyss Mages or an intruding Ruin Guard in or nearÂ Wolvendom, and they could fight together and see where it goes afterwards.
I'm not the best at ideas tbh, but I have one where even though Razor's not a knight, he could get persuaded and joinÂ Kaeya to help catch a criminal in hiding and needs to be tracked by scent.
