Prelude #2

The magical energies crackled around him, tearing into the very fiber of his being. The pain was unbearable, beyond all human limits, and with every passing moment, his mortality slipped away as the magical energies reformed his body.

Solid white energy flowed from the twin diamonds, impaling his body, and then diffusing into it, hardening it.

Yellow energy flowed from the topaz, dancing around his body, and fading to form an invisible shield around his body.

Red energy flowed from the ruby,  searing through everything in its path. It gathered around his body, infusing him with the power of fire.

Blue energy flowed from the sapphire, leaving a icy mist in its wake. As the energy crackled around his body, the mist rose to obscure him from vision.
