Mengxia hummed quietly as she sat on a particularly comfortable couch in the shared lounge, silently reading away at a book that detailed many of the more interesting battles that the Crimson Lion had fought in their long and storied history. The most noble example was a premiere fire mage that had single-handedly routed an entire enemy army only fifty years into the creation of the Order of the Crimson Lion. It said that he was faced with insurmountable odds, proving himself to be victorious through a long and drawn out battle. It was an impressive feat, and if Mengxia was being honest with herself, one she wanted to repeat herself.
If she did that, there was no way her family could ignore her then, could they? They'd have to accept the mage as she was, even if she did only have a bronze grimoire. She flipped another page, eyes scanning another great battle as she began to get caught up in her own mind. She was a year into her arrival into the Lions, and hadn't made herself known. That would have to change...though it would be a difficult climb due to all of the absolutely impressive people she stood beside. It would be a challenge for sure...but wasn't that the point? If she had joined some less impressive squad, maybe the act of bringing it to the forefront would be impressive enough...but she wanted to go higher than that.
She was a Dragon, after all. She may not have been the star, but her family's branch was known for its ambition. Climbing the latter of the Crimson Lion was going to be difficult, but it would be incredibly fulfilling once she had finally made it. It was with this thought that she smiled, the fires of her ambition stoked once more as she turned another page...
