Synopsis

Akita tells the story of the Choosing and how she and her twin brother, Kataru, went into the wilds to discover their animal forms.

Extended: Akita tells the story of how she and her brother, Kataru, experienced the ceremony "The Choosing". The day of their ceremonial "choosing" is interrupted when an ominous visitor arrives - the loathsome villain, Vex! He threatens the villagers and vows revenge, before disappearing again into the wilderness. Akita's "Choosing" ceremony resumes. She and her twin-brother venture into the wilds to find their animal forms. After many days spent meditating, Akita receives a vision and chases a red and white spirit wolf through the clouds. She eventually catches the wolf and is rewarded with her animal form: a wolf! Her brother, Kataru, is given the form of a bear. The siblings enjoy their animal forms, running and leaping through the woods, before eventually heading back to the village. Kataru goes first and Akita lingers for one last run. During her run, however, Akita sees a terrible ice dragon (Boreal) fly overhead. Realizing her village is about to be attacked, she races back to warn her friends and family... but arrives too late. The village is frozen and Kataru has been carried off by the Dragon, seemingly to his doom... Vowing revenge, Akita retreats into the wilderness.

Plot

Back before the Ice Emperor began his reign, the Never-Realm was a peaceful place where Formlings were able to thrive together. However, Akita and her brother, Kataru, were younglings and had not found their animal form. Akita thinks she will not find her animal form, but her brother believes she will find her form.

Vex interrupts the ceremony.

When the Choosing began, Akita’s heart was racing, but the induction was soon interrupted by Vex. He claims he was unable to find his animal form and was mocked by the villagers who had their animal form. Vex tells them he discovered an Elemental Power and plans to return in force unless they pledged their alliance to him. No one does and he walks away. 

After the ceremony, Akita and Kataru venture far away from their village in search of their animal form. One night, Akita is beckoned by her name and follows it into the sky. There, a wolf appears and runs away from her. Nevertheless, she is able to chase it down and obtains her animal form, a wolf. 

Part 2 of the last of the Formlings 41

Akita and Kataru discover their animal forms.

Once gaining her animal form, Akita realizes her discovery before nearly being attacked by a bear. Upon noticing, Akita realizes it is Kataru, who had gained the form of a bear. They then race back to the village to celebrate their accomplishments. 

When the siblings return, Akita sits on a rock before spotting Boreal, the fierce Ice Dragon. Akita quickly heads home, where she is shocked to find most of her people frozen. On the horizon, she sees Vex and the Ice Emperor watching the events unfold. She is disgusted by their acts and attempted to seek vengeance, but Boreal attacks Akita. 

Part 2 of the last of the Formlings 53

The frozen Formling village

Luckily, her brother arrived in time to defend her and takes a swipe at Boreal, injuring the creature. The beast retreats and attempts to attack Kataru. Akita warns her brother to retreat, but he doesn’t heed her warnings and is unfortunately frozen by Boreal. The terrified Akita witnesses the Ice Emperor and Vex leave, while she looks upon the destruction caused by them and sees her entire family frozen solid. Weeping at her loss, the devastated girl leaves the village, never to return. 

Feeling sympathy for her, Lloyd tells Akita the reason he was heading to the Ice Castle, is to rescue Zane. Akita soon got out a dagger and proclaims to Lloyd that he may be seeking to rescue his friend, but she seeks revenge for the Formlings.
