With temperatures rising over 143°C (289.40°F) in most areas, the only relief is during the nights when it is much cooler. All travelers are advised to keep to the local towns on the desert's outskirts and avoid traveling too far from civilization. (+3 Endurance, +2 Defense)

Gedeliah laughed jubilantly as his multicolored wings took him to the heights of the vault. It had been far too long since he had been able to feel the freeness of flight. Living on Evelon meant living among creatures who watched his every move. Not that there weren’t others who were able to fly, but they were treated differently. Gedeliah wanted to be looked at like a person even if he wasn’t.

Amael flew lazily next to him. She was just as pleased as he was to be able to spread her wings, but she regretted not staying on Evelon. They were the ones who traveled to world helping the less fortunate. He would talk their way into a group and Amael would use her powers to heal as many as she could. The vault had wanted them to return years ago. They were paranoid now with how many angels and seraph fell from grace.

Amael and Gedeliah knew they wouldn’t fall because they were doing work for the Vault. Work that was spread across a few teams and closely supervised. Now they were all meeting in the Vault. Though no one knew exactly why they had been summoned. Their director had forcibly pulled them back by cutting resources. Amael had made their stay in Evelon last two full years before their supplies even began to run low.

Gedeliah was not only a greatly charismatic being, but he knew how to manage resources better than anyone Amael knew. Because of him the conference had originally been called off. It took Amael’s begging before he would return. With them being out the other teams hadn’t been able to do their work. In the end their clever use of resources and Gedaliah’s stubbornness had probably been more of a hindrance than anything. Gedeliah had been too caught up in himself to realize that he was harming others. That was the only danger of working with him.

They descended in a wonderfully fast spiral. Their wings practically touching as Gedaliah closed in on Amael. He held out his hands and Amael took them. She imagined they looked something like birds in a death spiral. Gedeliah was still laughing, and the euphoric look on his face was intoxicating. Amael grinned back at him as they plummeted through the clouds. The barrier, the ‘floor’ of the vault, was speeding towards them. Its golden glow fading in and out of translucency.

At the last possible moment they shoved away from each other and their wings worked furiously to prevent them from crushing their bodies into the barrier. Gedeliah was laughing and looking at her expectantly. Amael was laughing too, giddy from the ride down. They flew back up to the cloud layer and lighted down in front of a quaint little building. It would have been a nice home back on Evelon but here it was used for meetings and gatherings. Only two other Seraphim were in the home. The rest were probably out in the vault getting things done. Amael and Gedeliah were meant for Evelon as they had no skills useful to the Vault. The other two in the home had never given their names, but were in the same boat.

“Any word from Dalziel?” Gedeliah asked. He lounged on one of the couches.

Amael had picked up a book and was reading it in a very uncomfortable position on one of the chairs. She liked to feel physically uncomfortable. She didn’t know why but it made her feel better, and helped her focus. As the three talked Amael lost herself in the book. A very boring one about chaos theory.

They waited for days. Gedeliah had gone out to practice fighting with the other two: hand to hand combat, weapons, magic. Others joined them and gave him tips and battle supplies. Amael opted to stay inside, reading by the window so she could keep an eye on them. Every book on the bookshelf had been thoroughly read and Dalziel had still not returned.

“You should join us,” Gedeliah told Amael. There were a few well trained seraphim joining them today. Gedeliah thought it would be the perfect opportunity for Amael to get some training.

“I think I’ll pass,” Amael said quietly. She felt embarrassed since she wasn’t particularly strong and the thought of fighting made her stomach sink to her toes.

“Come on,” Gedeliah insisted. “You’ve already finished every book. What could a bit of practice do? It’s not like we’ll be hurting anyone,” he continued. Sometimes when they were on Evelon they ran into hostile people. It would be good for both of them to know how to defend themselves.

Amael bit her lip nervously. “I guess,” she said slowly. They wouldn’t actually be hurting anyone, and Amael had to admit that what they were doing looked fun. Plus it would be a great way to pass the time before Dalziel got back. She followed Gedeliah outside and found the group already waiting for them. A few kind smiles went her way but most were ready to get to work.

“Amael, why don’t you come with me? We can work on the basics,” a young looking angel said. She was smiling kindly and held out a hand for Amael to take.

Feeling a bit awkward Amael took the woman’s hand and allowed her to lead them away from the group. Not far, just enough so they wouldn’t interrupt whatever was happening with the bigger group.

“Why didn’t you join us earlier?” the angel inquired.

“I’m not really a fighter,” Amael admitted meekly. The woman just nodded in understanding.

The angel spent the rest of what would have been an afternoon teacher her the basics. Blocking different attacks, weak points, how to throw a punch without breaking a fist. It was kind of fun and by the end of it Amael felt invigorated. She was still sure that she’d sooner pass out than fight someone for real, but practicing was fun. It felt great to move around after a long time of sitting.

Amael wondered if this was all the seraphim did all day. The vault wasn’t exactly filled with heavenly beings. At least the more densely populated areas were nowhere near their little cabin. She did know there was a war, there was always a war. Just like humans Seraphim were able to feel like one thing or another needed to be put in their place or destroyed. Their hatred for things that were different would have been terrifying if Amael didn’t have the same feelings. To a lesser extent maybe, but the feeling was still there.

When practice seemed to be over the soldiers stuck around for a bit to talk with them. Amael didn’t join in. Instead she went inside saying that she needed sleep. They took her word for it, Amael was a little surprised. She supposed after living amongst jumpy humans for so long her ability to gauge reaction was a bit off. Humans would have been suspicious of her. She had no reason to go to bed, she didn’t ache and she didn’t need sleep. They were the same, they should have asked her why she needed to sleep, or at least give her a suspicious glance. Sure Amael wasn’t exactly doing anything bad and she was really going to bed. After thinking about it Amael decided to drop the subject. There was no reason for her to be unreasonable, just as they weren’t being unreasonable. They probably just thought that she didn’t want to talk. Seraphim were surprisingly logical beings.

Really she had been away so long she felt uncomfortable talking with other Seraphim. When humans talked they were so full of emotion and hidden motives. Seraphim, Amael found, were less emotionally charged, and their motives weren’t hidden. Their motives depended on whatever commands they had been given. Sure they had their own intelligence and freewill, but they were less likely to have ‘evil’ motives.
