((I'm assuming we just pop in whenever so here goes.))Arinna shuffled in appearing to be quite flustered as she could barely lift her gaze from the floor. Normally she would be excited to see everyone but under these specific circumstances, it wasn't a dream scenario for her. Her hopes were that she'd go unnoticed by everyone else as she quietly made her way over to a corner. Arinna didn't want there to be any conflict, after all, she was the goddess of peace. She fiddled with the ribbon around her waist so that she would have something to focus on. Her guardian dragon awaited outside, he wouldn't fit inside and if something were to go wrong she would definitely need his help. "Please don't notice me..." She whispered to herself nervously, not wanting to be pulled into the conversation happening between other people.
Arinna shuddered at the mere mention of the darkness, for others it may have only been disturbing to see, but she had a deep-set trauma relating to it and it was the complete opposite of her own realm of light. Arinna's breathing became shaky as the light in the room dimmed. The light her body naturally emit was being dulled by the thought of the darkness she had long ago fallen into. She shied away into her corner trying to calm herself down, but she wasn't very successful in the slightest.
Arinna looked at Amaterasu for a moment, shocked by her quick movement, she may wield power over the fastest thing known, but she was surprised none the less. She scanned her over once noting the hand extended to her, but she wasn't sure what to do. She seemed almost frozen before she briskly loosened up nearly falling into the other goddesses arms, gripping her in a hug. All of this was far beyond her nature, every bit of what was happening was the exact opposite of what she stood for. A growing darkness that consumed her light, monsters of war and destruction that would ruin the peace she stood for and a book of true corruption opposing her purity in all ways. Arinna questioned why she even took the time to come, beyond the fact that she was amongst the gods she saw no reason for her to take part, it wasn't like there was anything she could do. Her eyes welled up with tears, every inch of her wishing that she could do something to stop anyone from getting hurt, but she could do nothing. "Thank you..." she whispered, her voice barely audible. She let go, trying to put on a brave face, but she looked far more like a sad puppy than anything. "We should probably listen to Ryo... Maybe there is a way to make Hyo stop without having a big fight..." She muttered hopefully, her natural light starting to rekindle.
Arinna gave a soft smile, it's faintness alluded to the fact that she was still quite sad, but she was glad to have someone so kind here with her. "Thank you again," Arinna said, her tone more smooth and clear than earlier. The flower was beautiful and a lovely gesture and made Arinna curious, causing her to focus on something else for a moment, she glanced at the ground to make sure that none of her calla lilies had begun to sprout randomly about between any cracks in the floor, after all, it wouldn't be the best time such a thing. She was brought back to attention, however, by Aurora's question. "I think that's what Ryo might be trying to tell us..." She told her quietly, trying not to sound mean. Even Arinna knew that there was no way to avoid bloodshed, which was rare as she was usually the one to try to deny such a thing no matter what. She wanted peace, she wanted those she called her family to be happy and if in the end that all meant there would have to be blood then she knew she'd have to tolerate it. Arinna would never be the warrior goddess many mortals thought her to be, but she if she had to try to be something like that for peace she would try her best, but she could never truly harm another living thing of her own accord. She also noticed another goddess approaching from nearby... Aerof, goddess of darkness. She was nice, but Arinna was terrified of the dark and therefore was uneasy around her. Her posture changed as she shied away from the goddess a bit, though she still wanted to try and be her friend at least.
Arinna smiled at Amaterasu's remark but decided to continue listening in to what was being said by the others. Arinna mulled over things in her head, trying to find a way to make things happen without any death. Arinna meekly spoke up worried that she may just be ignored for her lack of knowledge relating to war, "They can be convinced, can't they? After all, as a whole, there isn't much we can't give them and at this point in time any of us should be willing to give anything to avoid the deaths that could happen otherwise." She reasoned, not wanting anyone to take violent action against the children.
