Title: The Analysis of Salinas
Description: A third analysis? NO WAI!


The Blue Mage - February 11, 2006 07:27 PM (GMT)
Salinas. The daughter of Drinian and Melissa. No one knows much about her past. This analysis will provide a look into her life as it is to this day.

The Story

Salinas was born in a valley near Esthar, in Balamb. She was raised like any other child, with a kind father and a caring mother. They raised her as kindly as they possibly could, but they knew very well that outside of the Haven of the Half-Angels, Xanadu, her life would be full of prejudice. At one point, they even considered placing a Similitai bracelet on her, similar to the ones worn at one time or another by The Black Knight (Damien) and Saint Angelus (Alexander). However, when they moved to place it on her, she actually conjured a star and sent it far away.

Later on in her life, the conflict between the Shining Clan and the Shadow Clan began to grow tenser. It was just after the Shadow Clan attack on the Sky Base when Drinian took Salinas to Xanadu, for her to grow up and be a part of the war.

Upon their return, they found things were different. Salinas was older, and the start of the war had taken a turn for the good. After a few key victories, including the capture of Melmond, Drinian took the war to Omastria, while Melissa and Salinas remained behind to take care of Corneria. It was here that Salinas confessed her love to Leku, and the two became closer than ever.

After a recent battle at Melmond against Damien, Salinas discovered she held the Golden Luminary inside of herself. This lead to her quick mastery of Pinnacle Alchemy, though she is still working it into her combat style.
