Calix Panos
Rage does love company.

Calix looked at the new girl with undisguised disgust on his face. The obvious sympathy in her voice, the apology in her expression... did she think he was weak? That he'd need coddling? Oh, how he hated people like that. Those people who disguised nosiness as caring. Patronizing as politeness.

"I'm just fine." Calix growled as he stuffed his hands into his navy blue robes. Wizard clothing looked good on him, but that wasn't why he wore them. He had vowed that every move he made would be to bring prestige back to the Panos name. That meant dressing right, socializing with the right people (okay, he actually really needed to work on that one) and unfortunately, making the team. 'Reserve.' He mentally spat the word out in his mind.

Suddenly another girl arrived, congratulating the first girl on making captain. Calix stared, ignoring the new girl taking to the skies. "You?" His jaw dropped as he took her appearance in. "You made captain? You're the beater?" Suddenly a rare thing, at least for Calix, happened. He laughed. First it was a weak 'heh.' But it soon evolved into chortles, and then with a great burst of hilarity, erupted into deep laughs amazingly able to get his contempt across. "This is too much." He got himself under control, hugging his sides, before straightening up.

"So the coach actually thinks a skinny little thing like you can be beater, much less captain?" His gaze was hard, his tone challenging. In the back of his mind he heard Mikey shout at him to just let it go, grow up, but the shouts were fading further and further away until Mikey was gone and Calix was left alone in his righteous indignation.

    Darla was angry. No, beyond angry. Furious . Her fears had been matched; she'd been put to the bench again . It was one thing to be captain of the team and not playing, but reserve Seeker ?! Might as ... more

        That was it. She nodded to Darla when she thanked her on being Captain, before watching her friend take to the skies. She was obviously upset and angry, so Lucy decided that it was best not to bother ... more
        • Good luck Lucy. Darla Applerose, Thu Oct 7 16:44
          Darla was flying, and she watched the spectacle going on below. Lucy looked quite angry, and the other bloke was laughing. Darla rolled her eyes. Another Nealson.. Oh goodness, what a team they had.... more

            In some ways, Calix preferred muggle methods. There was something much more liberating in engaging in hand to hand combat. The pounding of flesh upon flesh, nails scraping skin, fists grazing jaws,... more

              The anger that had built up inside her, had now spilled over into her speech. Of course, Calix thought that she was a poor choice in Captain and Beater - there was no point squabbling over it.... more
              • I'll back you upDarla Applerose, Fri Oct 8 13:46
                Darla was impressed when Lucy just walked away. She would have backed her up if needed if the wizard had wanted to fight. She knew if anyone had challenged her , she would've hexed them immediately.... more
