-The chichagwa’s were hard at work trying to get Emushere clean as they could. However it seemed that she was too fast for them to catch. As she darted after they had rinsed her off she would smell like a lavender. The little Kilargwa streaked through the bathhouse and the rest of the house as she screamed for Arren. She would run through smelling around trying to find him. The door she came too was not the passage to the Garden. As the door opened she would see none other than Conan as he was still in his Kendo uniform as he looked down to see the soaking wet Kilargwa. He hadn’t seen one for so long he almost forgot about them. He reached down grabbing Emushere by the scruff lifting her off the ground as he said.- “Ok, Kilargwa why are you wet?as well why are naked? I mean I thought I told you all last time to dress just like the chichagwa’s.” -he looked into Emushere’s eyes not knowing it was her as it had been centuries since he saw her. He couldn’t tell it was her entirely. Charlotte was in fact walking by in a robe it seemed like to him as he said to Charlotte.- “OI! Charlotte. You seen Arren? I think we need to talk with him a bit. I mean I think its nothing but I want to see about getting Seven and Luna to see if they are alright.” -he didn’t know if she had heard or not knowing she was still looking around for things.-
Gardens of Den Lira
-Arren smiled as he heard Luna speak she had a voice of a small angel compared to most girls her age. “I’m a plushie-a-holic. Collect em and hug them to death. I think I get it from my mum, only she collects men.” he nodded at her smiling walking backwards as they came out into the Gardens as they wondered where Conan was. Arren gaze upon Luna in more detail of the lighting present he was in a bit of shock for the moment. She looked exactly like Iris he choked for a second as he said.- “You look exactly like my grand daughter. I must say I didn’t expect you to look so close to her.” -he nodded as he looked at seven he was in what Arren thought he was a bit of a child of course from his personality however he was still just a boy. Arren’s ears perked as seven spoke about Conan.“He’s here?” he looked back at Luna who was bouncing as he said to both of them.- “Yes Conan is here.” – soon after that asking the next question. “Where where?” -Arren couldn’t help but smile bigger from the mind of a child. It seemed the children saw Conan as a hero they looked up too. As he thought to himself and tried to pin point where Conan was. He was surprised that Conan would be on his way to the Gardens. Arren said to both of the children.- “well I believe he maybe coming back from the sound Temple perhaps he is with your mother right now.” -he did not know exactly as he thought to himself.
-Anya was still in the small house as a woman came forth holding Sarah. She was still quiet as hearing the growl form the woman. As Anya had shot her eyes open as Gabriel spoke. “Wh….where am I?” she shivered a bit as she said to Gabriel.- “Your in Den Lira one of Arren’s many different places he created as a sanctuary for those who know him.” -she looked closely as Sarah groaned in her sleep on Gabriel’s back as she opened her eyes to see her sister Anya. Anya gave a blood boiling yell as she said.- “SARAH! OH MY GOD ARE YOU OK!?” -she ran over to Sarah pulling her off Gabriel . Sarah slowly was opening her eyes looking up at Anya as she waited for a split second before reacting as she reached up grabbing her sister into a tight hug as she said.- “Anya thank goodness your alive. When we got split up I didn’t know where to find you.”- Anya giggled as she returned the hug as she said. To Sarah in such a joking tone.- “At least I didn’t have to use the hammer to much Sarah but you look like you haven’t eaten in days.” -Sarah looked over to Gabriel as she said to her sister.- “i haven’t eaten since they day we got here. I couldn’t find the place Father talked about.” -Anya looked over to Gabriel as she asked her a deep question.- “did you save my sister? If you did I thank you. Since we can’t use our power very good in the state we are in. it’s hard to survive” -she frowned as Sarah placed her hand on Anya’s face saying.- “hush Anya. We can it’s just harder.”
-Faust was impressed by the way Imayaruk was able to move out of the way in just the right time. As his blade touched his armor piece as watching something interesting take place. As the man quickly was engulfed in flames from an orb that implanted into his chest as he was higher than the rest of his horde and him. As he heard the man’s words. “Well now my little necrophiliac, You claim to have the flame of death in your hand. But I hold the Flame of rebirth in ever part of my being. What do you think will happen to your army or your very pretty pet if it consumes them? What don’t we find out?” the insult towards his dear sweet Eliza sent Faust into a rage as he yelled out towards the man.- “PET?! YOU DON’T SPEAK ABOUT MY DEAR EILZA THAT WAY YOU WILL DIE HERE!” – watched as the man moved down from the window as he started burning through the minions turning them to nothing but ash. Faust watched this go on as he was only becoming more anger with Imayaruk. He disrespect his lost love and his. Faust was truly angry as he pulled his blade closer to him as he said.- “Eliza come here.” -Eliza moved towards him running behind her Master as she was ready holding her scythe as she said.- “Yes Master I shall be your eyes from behind you.” -Faust grinned as he started to chant loudly.- [b] “I call forth the darkness,….” -Faust was quickly interrupted as Eliza pulled him backwards seeing a bolt of lightning blaze past where he was standing as he said.- “What the fuck?” -Faust looked down to his left of the whole that was open seeing a man in the distance.-
-The man was still cloaked as he had his out pointed down the center whole of the horde as he brought his left hand up to his chest grabbing hold of the cloak pulling it off to reveal his identity. This would a man Imayaruk would remember. His hair was blackish blue coming down to the back of his shoulders. He was a bit pale however he had a light tan down his arms. Coming with gloves on his arms the broke off at the fore arm. As his jacket cloaked down behind him with an open from the chest showing a black under armor. The sleeves of the jacket came down to mid length of his upper arm. His left hand had a belt wrapped around it as he pulled out his straight Kanai which was known for its double sided katana styled blade. The belt on his hand was handing down below his hand as his pants were tight as if he was wearing skinny jeans that were made of leather as his boots were combat styled more looking like a military black. His eyes were glowing a very deep red as he said.- “Sorry can’t tell you go any further with that spell Faust. Ben watching this fight for a little while. As well my promise to Shadow I can’t tell you belittle Imayaruk.” -he stepped forward as even the undead minions started backing away from him. He looked over to Imayaruk as he smirked.- “what has it been a few hundred years Imayaruk? – stood there gazing at the young prince as he turned his head towards Faust still wondering if he was ready for battle.-
-Faust stood up as he grinned looking at both of them as he said in a grand yell.- “YOU KEEP GIVING ME PEOPLE TO KILL! LETS START THIS PARTY!” -he brought his sword around ready for them to attack as Eliza prepared herself as well.-
-The grand battle was about to begin on this night as the Dark age of this era had begun. What was in store for not just these warriors but ones who were resting in the Den of lira.- <3>
Charlotte had left behind the squealing cat creature to her fate in the bath house, or…so she thought. No sooner had Charlotte gotten a few yards up the path, a very wet and very upset Kilargwa was streaking through the bath house and grounds. This would have greatly annoyed the chichagwa’s that had been trying to wash her clean. The air now had the scent of lavender, and…wet fur permeating through the air, and Charlotte raised a brow, when she suddenly heard Conan sing out to her.
“OI! Charlotte. You seen Arren? I think we need to talk with him a bit. I mean I think its nothing but I want to see about getting Seven and Luna to see if they are alright.”
Charlotte turned to see Conan holding the Kilargwa by the scruff of the neck, and could see a small puddle forming underneath the dripping feline. So that is where she ended up. Charlotte clutched the top lapel of her robe and drew it together, so she was not being to revealing, and padded over to where Conan was standing.
“I saw him earlier in the Gardens of Den Lira, perhaps he is still there.” She replied, looking down at the wet cat thing, and then her eyes raising back up to Conan asking. “You are going to have THAT dressed before we go see the children. I imagine if my kids are anywhere, they are with Arren. I think its how this place works.” Charlotte said with some assurance. Leaning to Conan, she did ask “Though, I would rather see my children when I was wearing a bit more than a robe. If I turn up with you, that soaked cat and me in this flimsy robe….god knows what my kids are going to think.”
She had a point.
Gardens of Den Lira
Arren was taken aback by how much Luna looked like his grand daughter; Iris. Luna found this all a bit embarrassing, having never been compared to anyone before in her life. There were very few children with lilac coloured hair. “Do I? Do I really?” she said with a bright blush to her cheeks. She twirled her right toe in the floor, and shook her shoulders from side to side, fluttering her tiny lashes. Seven thought she was being daft. “He’s just saying that. No one could look like you. I’m your twin, and I look nothing like you. Thank goodness for that too. Fancy me with purple hair. Eww.” Luna poked out her tongue at Seven, for being a precocious brat.
News that did garner the kids attention was that Conan was here, somewhere and on his way over, probably with the kid’s mother. Course when he said that to the kids, they both looked at each other and went…
When Anya asked if Gabriel saved her sister, she gave a nod to Anya before letting her thought roll off her tongue, “Yes I did save her. And you are most welcome, Ma’am. I would of done anything to keep your sister, safe,” Gabriel stood up and brushed off debris off her kimono, trying to get it clean to the best of her ability as one hand strapped her mid-ranged weapon to her hip then placed covers n the twin blades to prevent them from cutting everything.
“I saw him earlier in the Gardens of Den Lira, perhaps he is still there.”
You are going to have THAT dressed before we go see the children. I imagine if my kids are anywhere, they are with Arren. I think its how this place works.”
-Emushere was of course offend in all rights she normally was dressed as she quickly gave out a response to Charlotte in a loud yell that made Conan’s ears ring.-
“EMUSHERE IS NORMALLY DRESSED!”
Emushere know you, yes she does! You’re Conan, Emushere has not seen Conan in ages. Emushere missed Conan.”
-Conan gave a face towards her as she continued to ramble only making annoyed at the fact he knew her. She used to be so laid back in the past he wondered why she kept going as if she had lost her mind entirely. He didnt understand why this little Kilargwa had become so mad in her language. He cocked up his eye brow at her when she looked over to the lady asking her the question.-
“You know Conan named Emushere? We were in Egypt quite a long time ago Conan got tired of calling Emushere Kilargwa so being Conan he named Emushere Emushere which in Egyptian mean kitten.”
-The noble warrior that walked the path of a very old code could only do one thing at this point hearing this as he placed his hand on his forehead only to say.- “You have totally lost your mind you damn Cat!” -he couldn’t help but say it. She truly was out of it this was no longer the Emushere he knew so long ago. As he finally noticed Charlotte was leaning over to him he perked his head out of his hand as he listened to what Charlotte was trying to tell him.-
Though, I would rather see my children when I was wearing a bit more than a robe. If I turn up with you, that soaked cat and me in this flimsy robe….god knows what my kids are going to think.”
-She had a very good point to make. Even so Conan was still in bandages with the kendo uniform it was kind of odd for him to be in. He knew that bandages would only worry the kids in this case. Conan nodded towards her as he was about to say something. Until, the small little Kilargwa decided to make a break for it say to him as she bolted down the hall.-
“Emushere learned long time ago how to get out of your grip Conan, now off to Gardens of Den Lira!”
-Conan did it again he took the palm of his hand and planted it right in his forehead as he said in aggressive tone.- “DAMNIT!” -he turned back to Charlotte as he sighed thinking to himself on this. He could the robe that Charlotte had on was not really in the best taste to be walking in front of her children. He said to her as he pointed towards a room.- “I think our clothes might be in there. If anything Charlotte we could in fact just find a kimono for you to wear instead of the robe.” -he was in fact still in a daze at Emushere he knew that it was due anytime next thing we needed was a bag of catnip.-
-Conan and Charlotte would notice the Chichagwa’s running from the bathhouse with towels and a kimono as they started running after Emushere yelling.- “NO EMUSHERE YOUR NOT DRY YET!!!” -the four chichagwa’s kept running as if they were moving in a pack formation ready pounce her. As they too vanished into the Garden’s of Den Lira.-
Garden of Den Lira
-Arren stood there as he heard Seven speak about his sister only to reach into his kimono pulling out a picture of Iris as he waited for Seven to finish his statement.- “He’s just saying that. No one could look like you. I’m your twin, and I look nothing like you. Thank goodness for that too. Fancy me with purple hair. Eww.” -Arren’s ear flickered for a second. Only to for him to offer the picture to Luna as he said.- “you look exactly like Iris my Granddaughter. Other than she had blonde hair and blue eyes like her father. I think you have already seen this picture before.” -The picture was the same of the one that was seen in trek. In the picture there are two people behind a small girl looking to be about 5 years old. With the two older people looking both exactly like Conan in a younger age he looked happy from his smile and him dressed in his Kimono that was black. The woman next to him was of his wife Sirah who had blonde hair and green eyes she looked so beautiful in his light teal kimono her figure was definitely something to talk about. As the little girl was in the picture was something else. Even at her age of looking about five years old she looked a lot like luna other than height. All the facial features were the same other than the hair and eyes. While Luna had Purple hair the girl hand blonde hair. The girls eyes were blue exactly like Conan’s eyes. She had features from both the mother and father.-
-As Arren displayed the picture to both of the twins he heard a noise of the small Kilargwa coming forth behind him running with her staff that was broken. He left the picture in Luna’s care for her to examine only to turn around seeing that Emushere was still wet, not just wet completely soaked as she said to him.- “Arren fix now?” -trying to offer him the staff and orb as he sighed taking orb and the staff looking at it with seeing it had a finger missing from the holster for the orb to sit on. Only to place it together. As he placed the finger on the staff the material instantly started to seal itself back together as the orb was placed back on top of the fingers.-
-As Arren started to work on her staff the chichagwa’s were not far behind her as they yelled again.- “EMUSHERE YOUR NOT DONE!” -They came at her full blast as it sounded like small stamp-peed coming towards her. The Chichagwa made the turn into the gardens two with towels ready to pounce on her. As they jumped on top of her hopping to dry her off in the process of the other two with her kimono struggling to get it on her rolling around with her like a funny cartoon brawl breaking out.-
-Hopefully the Chichagwa’s were successful in doing this since she was naked and she could get a major cold being as soaking wet as she was. The Chichagwa’s struggled during this and if they did do it right they would jump back running away with the towels into the house leaving Emushere completely clean and dressed in her Kimono. They left one tiny detail left on her they did her hair giving her nice pink bow on her head. She looked adorable with it between her ears even if it was over sized for her.-
-While the Chichagwa’s were working on Emushere to get her dressed Arren had finished her staff only to hand it too her as they finished saying to her.- “done now don’t go breaking it again Emushere. I cant always be fixing it.” -Arren looked towards the kids as he said.- “Emushere please meet Charlotte’s Children Seven and Luna. They came to Den Lira to see both Conan and Charlotte.” -he pointed to the twins as he wondered if Anya and Sarah alone with the other girl would come out of the house. As he said to them.- “Anya, Sarah and the woman in the house please come out and join us in the Garden. I am sure everyone would like to see who is all here while we wait for Charlotte and the other.” -he stood there with his staff close to him leaning on it. Waiting for everyone to appear.-
-Rika who was finally let go and had regained herself after being squeezed by Luna she started to slowly sneak away seeing she had not finished her noddles only to get up slowly creeping away. As she looked over to the Twins before bolting to the other side of the Garden hiding behind some rose bushes hopping she could finally find the peace and quiet she needed.-
-Anya heard Gabriel’s answer as she blinked a few times.- “Yes I did save her. And you are most welcome, Ma’am. I would of done anything to keep your sister, safe,” -Anya smiled as she said looking to her sister Sarah saying in a very polite tone.- “Thank you.” -Anya had seen the Silverfang symbol on her back shrugging it off since she had seen the sign before but couldn’t place it anywhere since she was more worried about Sarah. Both of the girls looked up as they figured he would want them outside as Anya helped her sister to her feet as she said.- “Well time to see Arren again. Lets hope we don’t have to transform here.” -Both Anya and Sarah walked outside the small house seeing the Garden of Den Lira as they both couldn’t believe that the flowers were so grand it remind them so much of home even though it had been a year since they had seen the planets of the Magellanic Galaxy . Even though the Gorya Empire they more about was the one ruled by Shadow himself. Void was a beautiful planet and had Gardens that they used to play in so many years ago. It seemed to make them tear up as the Garden so Den Lira were a mirror image of the Gardens that their Creator had once made for them.-
-Faust was getting angry till he noticed thhat Imayaruk was trying to get him off his game. Faust laughed hearing the next phrase of the man’s statement.- “So Slave then, or do you not like being called Master by woman that would submit to you? Either way she clearly is a bigger threat then you human.” -Faust couldn’t help but laugh as he said in such a joking tone.- “You don’t understand who I am do you? I am one of the Necromancer’s that helped take down the great Shadow Eris Gorya!” -he grinned as he placed his hand on his blade only to say.- “Yes I may not have given the final blow to that man. But I was the one that helped my Teacher defeat him.” -he laughed as he pointed at Imayaruk saying to him in such a tone.- “You have no right to talk boy! By your moves and by your own clothing I can see That man was your brother. Your the youngest of the Goryan prince!” -he laughed only to hear everything that was going between Daren and Imayaruk.-
-Daren smirked hearing Faust and Imayaruk but soon to frown hearing the entire statement.-“Nay feels like half an eon then again you know how screwy time can be traveling the worlds Apprentice.” “Well it seems you made the freaks day So how about you take his ghastly girlfriend while i handle the Moron, sound good Apprentice?” -Daren said to Imayaruk in a serious tone. Wielding his blade out from his body placing his hand on the hilt.- “Imayaruk you know my name. I maybe the Apprentice of your brother but you need take learn to know that your choices are not ideal. You always seem to take on things that you may not over come. In this choice I am going to say No.” -he saw Faust was starting to catch on to their plans quickly. As Daren brought his blade to the left side of him looking to preform Bukdo- justu known for being used as a drawing kanai technique waiting for Faust to make his move.-
-Faust quickly looked at Daren as he started laughing as he said.- “So your the apprentice of the great Shadow Eris Gorya! Well then Daren Telreckic! WE SHALL SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO! ELIZA GO PLAY WITH THE YOUNG PRINCE FOR A WHILE!” -Eliza jumped into the air quickly moving at an accelerated speeds faster than she was before. She had been waiting to build up her power aiming straight towards him. As her Cleaver-scythe slowly started to produce black flames just like her Master’s did as well. How was this possible could it have been from that fact she had taken Kuria’s life as a blood doll? Or was it connected to Faust as well it was seeming to be unknown by the naked eye. As she sudden was above Imayaruk swinging down in a straight vertical pattern hopping to slice Imayaruk in half. Faust looked back at Daren as he quickly darted towards him wielding his as he swung in the same diagonal direction before towards Imayaruk hopping to cut him in half.-
-Daren saw straight through this attack and quickly pulled out his blade as the wind instantly picked around him channeling his own energy through the kanai as he clashed with Faust’s blade only to say in such a emotionless tone.- “Your flames will not touch me Faust and for this I will not let you go any further.” -Daren’s blade would not rot or rust as in the fine line of millimeters there was a gape between the blades that if you paid attention you could seen. Daren saw Eliza above Imayaruk as he yelled out.- “IMAYARUK ABOVE YOU!” -he turned back his focus towards Faust again as he was waiting for the moment to break Faust’s guard.-
-It seems that the battle has just begun for both Daren and Imayaruk. Only the Destiny’s fate will guide them through this never ending battle between the Darkness and the Light. Shall we seen what is in story for them. very soon a great Evil will enter the streets of Lorewall-
Traditionally, a bathhouse is a tranquil place, for relaxation and reflection; of cleansing, and above all, its to wash your cares away. That being said, the mad antics of Emushere had made it anything but. From driving Conan to distraction and upsetting hordes of Chichagwa that were just trying to do their job; Charlotte had had enough. Blinking rapidly from the incessant chatter of the deranged cat creature, Charlotte rejected Conan’s advice that she should dress in a kimono, since anyone who is anyone knows how long they take to put on, and not only that, Charlotte was keen to see her twins; Luna and Seven. Not only did she miss them, but she knew the antics those two could get up to unsupervised. Patting Conan’s arm lightly, she said.
“I think I will go find something a little easier to wear, like a silken twin set, but thanks for the advice.”
Finding a small change room, she asked one of the Chichagwa, if they could find her a twin set, preferably with pants, as opposed to a skirt, and thankfully the Chichagwa obliged her with a black silken shirt and pants, with silver thread trim. Putting it on and discarding her robe, she swept her hair up behind her into a loose bun, and when happy with her appearance, she rejoined Conan to go meet with her children in the Garden of Den Lira.
Garden of Den Lira
Having been shown the picture of Arren’s granddaughter, it was plain as day to see the resemblance between Luna and Iris, who had blonde hair instead of the lilac which Luna bore. Luna held the photograph, admiring it, while sure enough the Kilargwa had finally reached the garden, with of course the Chichagwa in hot pursuit. The noise was terrific, and even Seven couldn’t hold back the laughter when the Chichagwa and the Kilagwa got into a massive brawl. It really was the silliest thing he had seen, but the end result would have her dressed. Thankfully. Charlotte and Conan would not far behind, and naturally both the children were keen to see their mother again
The Children weren’t too keen on the wild Kilargwa, even Seven holding back from his usual childish antics and phrases. Something about this creature was unsettling. Maybe with its staff fixed, she might behave.
Gabriel looked over to Arren then moved to look at the others who were just standing in the hallway of the Japanese style home that felt very comforting to her. Her eyes lowered down to the Kilargwa who wore a big pink bow on top of her head with a scent of lavandar hitting her nose. She gave a chuckle, figuring out that this creature just had a bath, looking up to see the twins as well as she crossed her arms, trying to get comfortable.
-Arren stood outside in the gardens only to be greeted by his long old friend who had been go for so long. She dragged the body bag as she spoke to him.- “Emushere back Arren, took a year but Emushere back… Emushere lost pendant, had to search for Arren’s presence to find home. Good news got him, bad new all others are gone… They all gone…”-He had turned to smiling as he said.- “Well hello Emushere it has been a long time. I am glad you have returned.” -he was a bit upset that she had too so long as her continued.- “I knew this was going to take sometime Emushere, You know I wouldn’t have trusted this task to anyone else but you. I am glad to see you are alright.” -he brought his paw to her head patting her, she was in fact beat she had been through hell in back for such a cause. It seemed she was inneed of some rest. As he was about t speak she had tripped over her own clothing. The a loud “SMASH!” the crystal orb broke from the staff as a large demonic began to form as Arren growled as it tainted that garden with its scentch. Arren lifted his bo staff only to slam it on the grass sending a shock wave of light through the ground and into the air as it would engulf the demon entirely. The blinding light was in fact as a purifying light that would destory the demon and banish it from the gardens entirely. After all this was his own creation to be in for the time being.-
-Arren looked over Emushere as he was not upset at her as he said.- “Now you need to be more careful next time. You need to rest I shall I have the Chichagwa’s come and grab the body for now. I know this was a task that I could trust you with. However you need to pay more attention to things that will make it quickier.” -he snapped his fingers as ten Chichagwa’s came running out trying to take the body away from Emushere as they rustled with the body trying very hard not to damage it. As they left as quickly as they came halling off the body into another area to seemed they were talking amoungest themselves. All you could here were whispers.- “Now You do need a bath Emushere, I believe there is hot water already running.”
-Rika who was in the small house was now being squeezed to death by Luna’s death hug as she could hear them talk about her.- Soooo fluffy. Can we keep her?” -she was trying to get away before she was grabbed as she could only hear luna’s last phrase.- “Ni….PON! Gosh you are fluffy….do they make your kind in pink?” -only to have Rika yelp out saying loudly.- “NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!” -she was getting her lungs crush by the girl.-
-Anya finally started to get herself together hearing Seven’s comment about Rika.- “Are they house trained? Don’t want something that big inside making that big a mess. Mum would freak.” -Anya’s eye twitched as she was balled her fist tightly thinking about how wrong that sounded. She stood up bringing her arm back cocking it over her shoulder. The fire was burning in her eyes as she said.- “THEY ARE LIVING BEINGS! WHY ELSE WOULD THEY WEAR CLOTHES!” -she swung forward aiming for the back of Seven’s head hopping to come in contact with him trying to make him think properly.-
-Conan had in fact been angry as Danzo knew it. Conan quickly lunged at Danzo with full force moving at an accelerated speed. Danzo quickly attempted to draw his sword only to have Conan grab him by the throat with one sweep. Conan had him by the neck as he lifted him up into the air as Conan lashed out in a blind rage.- “YOU THINK YOU GOT BALLS DO YEA? GO AHEAD DRAW YOUR SWORD!” -Shikia covered her mouth feeling the rage of an Alpha as she could feel the urge to submit and shy away she dropped her spear only to fall to her knees watching Danzo hanging in the air. Danzo was shocked at Conan’s speed however he too could feel the urge to submit as he said choking on his own words.- “You maybe an Alpha, However you are nothing but a coward, You couldn’t even see your own daughter was undead. You shame your clan with your actions. Taken down by a five year old.” -he coughed gasping for air as Conan clintched his jaw only to tighten his grip on Danzo’s wind pipe as he growled. He was now seeing red for the first time since he was a boy as he said.- “i will show you shame” -In the moment those words came out Conan quickly shifted his arms grabing Danzo by the belt as he brought him up over his head. Sound around him began to vibrate rapibly. The sound was being channled through Conan as he planted Danzo flat on his back the sound was not hard to miss from the impact as Danzo’s back came into contact with the stone stairs the speed he was thrown at cause a clash of sound creating a shock wave of sound all the way to the bathhouse.- “BOOM!” -the wind would soon follow as it blew past the bathhouse. Danzo gave a loud choking cough as he was slammed to the ground spitting out blood from the blast. Conan looked into his eyes as the stairs were completely destory Shikia had been blown back with the impact now laying out cold at the temple shrine. Conan said one thing to Danzo.- “You know nothing of me or even know me. Dont ever talk about my family ever again or so help me your back will be the least of your worries.”
-Faust turned his head as he heard the words of the man behind him.- “Well now an army for a dragon, a demon, and a phoenix, either you plan for overkill or scared that you will be devoured.” -Faust was unimpressed with his taunts of power only to luahg as an insane man would. The undead army surrround him creating a distance between them. As Imayaruk seemed to be summoning forth something that he thought would in fact challenge Faust to his death as he smirked as he spoke an chant.-“Fire, Earth, Wind, Water, and demonic Spirit, protect me from harm” -the words seemed to bring forth a power that seemed to create a large sheild behind Faust as imayaruk spoke to him again.- “May heaven show mercy, Hell be swift, and life be reborn.” -Faust grinned as he said.- “Thats if you can hit me.” -the fire tore straight through the lines of the undead and straight towards Faust as the natural forces of his sheild of Spirit protected him. As soon as the fire came into contact to the sheild it was quickly negated from the magical source as Faust felt the heat only to turn around seeing the flames disappearing as he grinned saying to his sweet dear Eliza.- “My dear you can handle the girl for me. I think im going to have fun with this man.” -he started laughing as Eliza giggled along with his luahg. Eliza picked up scythe cleaver as she walked forward towards the Gabriel as she started to run quikcly moving at an unnatural speed, She leaped into the air pulling back the scythe and using it full length to come down on the sheild as the talsmen broke as the sheild shattered Eliza still coming down in the attempt to cut the woman in half her eyes completely emotionless hopping to kill her so she could claim the pize. Faust was still looking at Imayaruk as he pulled a small dagger from his belt brandishing it as he laughed . Grabbing one of the undead monsters he summoned he plunged the dagger directly into the creatures back as he said a chant.- “O darkness, prevail, unto this blade, soul of the damned, go forth, and when this blade should find flesh, you shall find retribution, go on unto the cold iron, and there stay until it pierces skin.” -the body of the creature started to rot quickly turning into ash as the dagger started to extend becoming large in length and width only to be surround in black fire as faust weilded the blade in his right hand. He looked at Imayaruk directly seeing through his very being. He laughed as he said.- “Rise Darkness Enternal. I weild you out burning blade of death. Now let me have my fun and bring forth the will of my Teacher. All Hail Yen!” -he waited for Imayaruk to make the first move if he even dared to come at him.-
One cannot describe the feeling that you get, when you are able to bathe in the revitalizing waters of this quaint little bathhouse. Charlotte virtually disappeared beneath the surface of the heated waters, only to reemerge with her fine black hair plastered to her head. Eyes closed she tilted her head back to the side of the tub, and then brought her toes up out of the water on the other side, wiggling them slowly. Last time she could recall using a bathhouse, was of course Madame Ming Ru’s back in Lorewall. Charlotte opened her eyes slowly, though she had a glazed expression. Why you may wonder? The bathhouse of Lorewall was where she first met Fung Le, the sun dragon master, who gave his own life for all at the end of their Trek. It felt like a lifetime ago, and the lapping of the waters along with the musical chimes that could be heard in the background, only made her remember…everything.
~Taken from the COL – CD April 16, 2012~
The Bathhouse of Ming Ru was one that had several floors, and far below was where the furnaces would super heat the waters that would be funnelled up to the separate rooms, on the second and third floors. Shoes off, and now being escorted through the foyer, they would find a team assembled, all in traditional Chinese robes, and carrying with them woven baskets. Madame Wong spoke very quickly in Chinese to her staff, to gather the correct oils and towels, for each guest, along with golden tokens, that are used to be sent down through tubes, to the furnace room, so the keeper of flames, knew how much water was needed and how hot. As each girl was assigned a customer, they took the correct number of tokens that would fill baths for each of them. Laguna would have his own little wash girl, who bowed over and over and then kept grabbing more and more tokens, followed with another two towels. She gestured towards the bathing rooms,and shuffled ahead of him, as the doors were pulled open to allow them through. Thorn too, would have her own bath house maid, and she was keen to wash Thorn’s tail and ears, grabbing special tubes of lotions and brushes. (Thorn’s bath girl)”Come..please.”
Finally, Charlotte had her bath girl come to her and the girl was somewhat fearful of Charlotte, hesitant of what oils to gather, and snatched up a handful without looking, so keen to get this over with. Charlotte became embarrassed, her cheeks flaming, but followed the petite girl along, and wouldn’t you know it, her bathing room was right beside Laguna’s. (Char’s bath girl)”Please, take off travel clothes and I gets towels.”- Charlotte turned away from the girl, a little self conscious, The screen between the rooms, allowed for Laguna to see Charlotte’s silhouette, and the closeness would also make it possible to hear what the bath house girl was saying. But it was when Charlotte took off her shirt, the young girl screamed and dropped the basket of oils and towels. (Char’s bath girl)”THE MARK OF ZHU!…..MADAME WONG!!…THE MARK OF THE SPIDER WARRIOR!!!”- Charlotte froze and tried to look over her shoulder, wondering what the girl was screaming about. (Charlotte)”Huh?” Charlotte did have a mark, the symbol of the Spider clan of the ‘Dongyi’ of the Shandong, only thing was, Charlotte had no idea what this meant. <e>
~End of reflection~
Charlotte glanced over her shoulder, as water trickled down her back, and her slender digits reached to caress the mark, that had caused all the commotion that day in the bathhouse. Sighing, she wanted to put the memory out of her head, when the little Chichagwa that had been attending her, came in with the small tray of crab cakes. Setting them down, the young pup like Chichagwa asked. “Is everything alright?” Perhaps it was the look on her face that gave her away, but Charlotte was not about to reveal her real reasons. “I was just hungry, thank you for bringing me such delicious smelling delicacies.”Charlotte said with a light smile, then reached for one and taking a bit. “Oh…this is good.”
Luna loved how noisy Rika was being, so every time she screamed Ni, Luna squeezed her tighter. “She is better than Tickle me Elmo!” Luna enthused before finally setting the Chichagwa down. “Still think she should be pink though. Would match my hair better.” Luna said with a chuckle, patting her own hair. Course, by this stage, she noticed that Anya seemed enraged about…well Seven’t comment about house training the creatures. Anya had her fist raised in anger, the power of all hell behind it, and Seven could not see it coming, but Luna could. “Anya…don’t be a meanie. Put your arm down.” This remark gave Seven the chance to react as he spun on his heel, then ducked backwards, going into a fancy breakdance move, like in those old 80’s movies. Needless to say, if Anya went through with her punch, she may well be sent spinning, as Seven was spinning on the ground.
Gabriel first read the words that were some sort of spell to cast a portal then once she got used to pronouncing the words in such a short time, Gabriel started to recite the words that were carved on the back of the pendant, to only have a portal open next to her as she turned to Imay, “Dragon warrior, you must come with me! You must come with me in order to survive!” she yelled out to Imay, in hopes that he would hear her eager plea for him to follow her then she stepped into the portal and she starts to get flung to where ever her god might be as her arms held Sarah close to her for dear life.
-Emushere was in fact being dragged away by the chichagwa’s as you could hear the frantic “NO BATH” chant as they dragged her down the halls. They grew closer and closer as they had her tucked in those towels tightly. They finally appeared at the bathhouse only to open the door since there were two baths in the woman’s side of the bathhouse Charlotte would see Emushere being brought in as the Chichagwa’s opened the door saying to Charlotte.- “Our apologies for any problems we may cause. This one needs a bath.” -they continued to drag the Kilargawa called Emushere as she kept crying out as they pulled her to the fall bath only to drop her into the bath. Two chichagwa’s had long scrub brushes as they started to scrub her head. The other three had polls to keep her in the bath so she wouldn’t start trying to climb out.-
Gardens of Den Lira
-Anya had heard Luna yell at her as she looked over at her. “Anya…don’t be a meanie. Put your arm down.” Anya was about to move forward with swing instead she did not even move she placed her arm down only to say.- “Seven you look like a fool right now.” -she heard a high pitched frequency coming from outside and the loud explosion of Arren destroying a demon. She thought to herself at the sight of Arren how long it had been she didn’t want to think about what he was going to make her do as she stood there silent knowing he would soon make her show her demons.-
-the portal to which Gabriel and Sarah had traveled through had in fact landed them in the same place as Anya and the twins as the portal opened behind the little ones. It show both the Volfen and the little girl walking coming through only to have the high frequency sounds be heard.-
-Arren watched this unravel only as he stood there staring at them only to walk forward hearing the cry’s of Rika. His bo staff was heard pounding against the ground as he spoke.- “Let Rika go young one. I can see you like soft stuff animals however. Rika is a living being, She must be handled with care.” -Arren stepped on the wooden flooring opening the door as he looked down upon Luna for a moment his figure might scare the children or it might interest them. He looked to Seven dancing as he cock his brow upwards towards the boy. As he saw Anya staying quiet as he said again to both of the twins.- “You must be Charlotte’s children. I must say I visioned you would be small than what I thought.” -he smiled at both of them as he continued.- “I am sure the portal ride didn’t keep you from wanting something to drink.” -his ear flicked a little as his eyes gaze upon them with interest as he made a statement to them as a welcome.- “Welcome to Den Lira, one of the many homes that I created. A original training ground to someone you may know. I believe I recall you call him Mister Conan” -Arren pushed the door open further as he stepped out on to the oning hoping them would come out to see the Garden.-
-Danzo was out cold as well as Shikia Conan stood up releasing Danzo from his grip he wasn’t in the mood anymore to stay here. He quickly started walking towards the Den again. He brought out another Cigarette as he said. While lighting it- “Don t ever do that again.” -he walked towards the Den and into the Gardens he went it would take him sometime before he would appear in the Gardens. Conan was needing to see the den for what it once was. In the past it was place of knowledge to him and more of beauty. He left the sound temple.-
-Eliza had missed her target and smashed straight into the blood doll that was speaking as it crumbled only to smirk as she said.- “You were no match for my Master’s recreation” -Faust was in fact grinning heard the woman call to Imayaruk. “Dragon warrior, you must come with me! You must come with me in order to survive!” Faust gave no chance for retreat as he yelled out.- “Oh no you don’t your going top stay blood stained boy!” -he charged Imayaruk as he brought the blade back and swung across in an upward diagonal formation to targets left as gave insane howl of laughter. If the touched or clashed with his blade the effect of rotting or rusting would activate his blade was able to rot bodies and age blades with the force of its magic. Faust knew this as well knew it would make it hard to dodge. He was taking advantage of this. Eliza pulled her weapon out of the blood doll turning around waiting for a time she could jump in. The undead solider s behind Imayaruk quickly started to move into position as they were attempting to attack him behind as they all pinpointed behind him. As the others came from both sides as they all were screaming.- “DIEEEEEEEEEEEEE! WE LIVE FOR FAUST!” -they had surrounded him trying to over take him they hopped to do damage to the man.-
Having enjoyed the tempting delights of the crab cakes and assorted condiments, Charlotte placed a cucumber slice over each eyelid and then rested her head back against the tub, letting the revitalizing waters wash away her cares, and her troubles. Memories that had been reawakened so far as she soaked, gave her insight to her past, and to her true identity. This was something she had not truly thought about in a long time, and so it gave her comfort, which she so badly needed after her meeting with Shadow in the afterlife.
But that zen feeling, the ambiance and quiet of the bathhouse was to be sorely disrupted, when the screeching cry of what can only be described as a feline creature, was screaming on the top of her lungs.
“NO BATH, NO Bath, No Bath, No bath, no bath, no…”
Lifting off one of the cucumber slices, she peered with one eye, as her head tilted, to see the doors opened and a number of Chichagwa dragging a very upset creature into the bathhouse.
“Our apologies for any problems we may cause. This one needs a bath.”
“But I thought this was a private…..oh.” Charlotte could see what the Chichagwa meant, and of course before Charlotte could utter another word, the feline creature, who was still causing a ruckus, was unceremoniously dumped into the falls bath. Taking her cucumber slice, she popped it in her mouth and chewed as she watched the unlucky cat creature get scrubbed down. It really wasn’t that cat’s day. Clearly, the idea of a soak in restful surrounds was over for Charlotte, and she decided now was as good a time to get out and find a robe. She rose to standing, then stepped out of the bath onto a wooden stand, and reached for a towel, to pat herself dry.
Gardens of Den Lira
“Seven you look like a fool right now.”
“Better to look a fool, then be king hit by you, Anya.” Seven said, as he came to the end of his break dancing, and leapt up to standing, popping his neck and rolling his shoulders. Seven grinned at Luna and said. “Thanks for the heads up.” Luna was of course still cradling Rika awkwardly, and this was when Arren made his appearance. Course, he wasn’t too pleased to catch Luna being overfriendly with Rika.
“Let Rika go young one. I can see you like soft stuff animals however. Rika is a living being, She must be handled with care.”
“Awwwe. I was being careful, honest.” Luna said with a firm nod, before setting down Rika and then patting her head. She then stood back and shrugged her shoulders. “I’m a plushie-a-holic. Collect em and hug them to death. I think I get it from my mum, only she collects men.” At this, Seven burst out laughing. “Ahahahaa, yeah sounds about right.”
Arren spoke of how he was surprised that they were Charlotte’s children, since he expected them to be smaller, though they were nearly 13 years old now. The ripe time for growth spurts. The children shrugged as if to agree, but when he mentioned Mister Conan, both perked up.
“He’s here?” Seven asked, as Luna started bouncing. “Where where?” That was a good question. Neither seemed to want a drink, more like they wanted to know what had happened to Mister Conan. Both children followed Arren out to the garden, hoping he would led them to Conan, or their mother. Either would do.
Within the next few moments, Gabriel and Sarah came crashing through the portal as the entrance portal closed with a sound of a jet flying by. With a loud crash into the boards of the floor, the exit side of the portal closed in a rush and Gabriel had landed on her back and that caused her to gasp out in pain though she did not break any bones while using herself as a cushion for Sarah since she was still asleep. Gabriel looked around at the new environment and was a bit shocked to see a zen themed room within her line of view.
“Wh….where am I?” She asked herself out loud, not knowing that there was anyone there, living in the room she had apparently landed in.

DarksiedtheLegend: -Back inside the Tarantula at the engine floor did Larry shift his attention to Taru before to Sora as he then responded to them to what he thought was their concern-(Larry)”Oh don’t worry about it. This is just usual maintenance, the boys and girls in the laboratory with some help from the engineers took the Tarantula out on a practice sortie up on a military testing grounds…funded by the government of course. Now come this way and Matilda when you are done…” –Before Larry could finish his sentence did Matilda interrupt him-(Matilda)”I know when maintenance is done just leave, I got it.” –To which Matilda got back to her work checking on the supposed leg engine as she took some time searching through her tool box for some bolts and nuts before diving halfway into the leg engine to fix whatever was wrong in it as Larry brought them back to the stairway where he lead them upwards to the very top floor past the second floor which had the entrance hatch as they finally got upwards to the third floor with the first floor being the engine floor.
The third floor the so called command floor, a set of five chairs each placed apart from each other, the first chair is placed on the left side of the room in front of a monitor embedded into the wall with a control panel on a table in front of the chair, the second chair is placed on the right side of the room in front of a similar monitor embedded into a wall with control panels on a special table in front of the chair, a third chair was placed in the middle of the first and second chairs, the third chair seemed to be at the very centre of the room, the fourth and fifth chair were some part away from the third chair, while the fifth chair seemed to have a table in front of it that had two control panels on the sides of the table with a monitor in between the two panels and is embedded in the table and finally the fourth chair which seemed to have a table with on a monitor standing upright on it, a control stick with a w-shaped steering yoke was in front of the chair, with a side control panel with one big switch and many other smaller switches and these chairs seemed to have railings close by as Larry then walked on the carpeted grounds around the railings to the third chair as he sat in the chair before spinning in the chair to face the direction of Taru and Sora.-(Larry)”This is the Captains chair and or Commanders chair not sure which one will be controlling the Tarantula. The chair upholstery is very comfy, leather too and one could literally sleep in this chair now let’s see all the chairs are securely bolted down along with everything in here so as to avoid any unnecessary turbulence inside this floor…the chairs at the side of the Captains chair is the telecommunications station and the diagnostics station…Umm can’t remember which chair is which but telecommunications its already in the name for it does what that station does as for diagnostics it’s the station that shows what has been hit? Where was it hit? Is a floor on fire? Is it serious or can we just use fire extinguishers and that’s it? Is an engine offline? Is the plasma generator or reactor overloading? All those problems and such…you see the two chairs in front of the Captains chair the one the right is the navigation station kind of obvious what that station is for as for the station next to it the one with all the switches and that airplane control stick, that’s the driver seat, the monitor for the driver is linked directly into the Tarantula’s sensors and follows the motion of the control stick, every forward motion makes the legs move forward every turn takes a while to turn to the turn position so please no quick turns …It doesn’t work that way even if you try. Plus here’s a neat feature you remember the hatch we enter through at the beginning of this whole tour…well if the hatch is locked and the secured door is locked, there was two exhaust pipers pointing towards the hatch…well those exhaust pipes are actually tank turret barrels that extend to somewhere underneath this room where it has an automatic fire function that if anyone who is out there try to open the hatch will that person gets blasted with cannon fire.
The exhaust pipes are aimed directly at the hatch so it could destroy whoever dares open the hatch without destroying the hatch itself but only when the Tarantula is in full swing…It also has a manual function just in case… so now the final question is how do you like the Tarantula now that you have seen all of it? The only thing left to show you would be the testing facilities for the turret guns, the laser, plasma and cannons guns and various simulations of actual tests run on the Tarantula plus probably the emergency features. So what you think of it?”
–As Larry smiled at them as he waited for their answer meanwhile back at Shangri-La as little Darksied listened to Raven’s answer to his question about Ettercaps-(Raven)“Aunt Charlotte said that the Ettercaps came from a large settlement that was in the catacombs below the Western Forests of Nemaues. Brought to this world by Mazmezz, their role is as protectors to Beblith young. To describe them, I would say, like jolly green giants, but they have similar mouths to spiders, with the mandibles. They don’t have hands per say, but actually claws, which is great for picking up the likes of my Cousin Seven, when he was really young and always getting into things he shouldn’t. The ones I remember were about six feet; pretty big when you are a kid. They have these bulging bellies, and are able to make webbing blasts, similar to Spiders. Poison tip mandibles. And they have a rather mean disposition. Not at all friendly.” –As Darksied thought of how these Ettercaps would look like he remembered that she said the Beblith young to which he would just respond-(Darksied)”So that makes you a Beblith? Since you did say they protect Bebliths children or was it young…Also you did say Aunt Charlotte I believe she was the prime minister…I think I met her when I was younger…Hmm that must mean you are a relative to the Carrendars right?”
–But he then went silent as he realized something…she had stopped talking to him and was talking with the headmaster now as the headmaster would put his branch like hand in front of Raven as he then said to her-(Headmaster)”Can I have your mask please? So that I can fix it accordingly…as for your question on the clan of darkness, I can only say that that those in Nemaeus aren’t being lead by just one leader. During some time ago the other clans heard that the clan of darkness had a civil war within their ranks…the number of causalities is uncertain but the only thing that can be confirmed is that the clan of darkness has split into various factions…some of these factions want to have their candidate acknowledged while others prefer the decision of the council while other factions wishes to wait…so far the existence of the darkness clan hang in the balance…news about Nemaeus and the former nation of Lacardis doesn’t come often in the world of Shangri-La. I blame the portals for that…one can appear so close but yet be so far away that it gets quite frustrating at times….Makes me wonder about those who had graduated before those who were lucky enough to be named Darksied of shadows, underworld, silence, pain and even the older generation of Darksied and Lady Darksied… ahh I remembered she gave birth to lovely twins some time ago I wonder how long that was?…So now can you give me your mask so that I can fix it right”
–Meanwhile at Rider’s house in Dead nation as Paige avoided the two handed crush from Marluck but it seemed like he saw her ran through his legs as she then attempted to poke his butt as Marluck was ready to give this little runt a good workout but he noticed a second person came out of the house this one appeared to be carrying a shovel for some reason as Marluck started to think about his options as he first grabs the grab the earth with his left arm forcing his left arm to forcefully push himself around as his legs went up and around. Marluck was literally using his arm as one would use a pole to turn on it three hundred and sixty degrees as Marluck would spin around once to get a feel before spinning one more time but this time he had prepared his leg to hit Paige around the face with his sharp toenails so that to scrap some skin off her face but he was pretty sure that this attempt would be blocked by either her shield or some defensive move or it might actually connect. But then he heard a voice of an another being-(Baldrick) “Oi..Oi…you could at least say Good Morning!” –This made Marluck think for a moment before he heard Rider shout back at this other being-(Rider)”Wait a moment I’m getting my chair!”–A few moments later Rider had returned back to the house and dragged a chair to the door way of her house as she then sat on the chair before shouting back to Baldrick and Paige-(Rider)”Marluck doesn’t really talk much during his lessons! He prefers a hands on approach! He also said that speaking is a waste of energy! Hey Marluck why not we start with the meat lesson first before the combat lesson?!” –As Marluck would immediately halt his attack on Paige just moments away from connecting his attack to either her shield or face as his foot was just close enough to Paige before he retracted his leg before Standing on his left hand with his body and legs straight and upwards towards the artificial sun as he then jumped upwards into the sky as he then somersaulted backwards as he came down in front of Rider. As Marluck waited for a bit before Rider spoke-(Rider)”While there are many normal type meats out there that just creep out and attack you in mostly hordes there are some special classes like the jumpers who ironically can jump at you from incredible distances to attack you… some jumpers have a tendency to attack Otyugh riders of their Otyugh…so Marluck ready?” –By the time Rider had finished her sentence Marluck had already lunged towards Baldrick with his arm and sharp nails up in the air in an attempt to make a slash at Baldrick face.
Meanwhile somewhere deep within the sewer tunnels, beyond the protected cities enforced by the Butcher’s men at one of the more meat infested towns a strange looking meat stood in front of a group of five meats who were standing in a row. This strange meat had strange boils growing on his face and oddly enough seems to be less muscular than the rest but this meat was fully dressed in leather armor as this strange meat marched in front of the group of five meats as this meat stared down each one of them before returning back to his position as he then pointed with his arm a group of wooden targets with badly drawn pictures on them before this strange meat pointed at the group standing in a line then back to the targets to which the meats in line then jumped up high and then came crashing down on the wooden targets hitting every target head on before the strange meat just applauds before a second group stepped forward to which the strange meat with boils on his face smiled as he then let out a simple roar-(??? ??????)*ROOOOOOAAAAAR!!!* -As some meats would reset the wooden targets up right and in position, all of these targets were painted almost like flusher people and the Butcher’s soldiers. As the strange meat looked at the new batch again before pointing at the targets as the meats then jumped high to attack.
Meanwhile in Talus Quarry there seems to be a lot of noise being emitted from that abandoned place and it seems like the source is coming from underground. Scratching and digging until the eventual crack of a large boulder and as the boulder cracked in two did a large crab claw appeared from the middle of the crack as a large creature came out from the cracked boulder, large elephantine legs, a thick exoskeleton body, a large crab claw almost like a large crab claw almost no sign of a head or an extra arm, but in its chest did two yellow eyes glowed before these large somewhat crab creature stepped away to allow ten to twenty insect warriors each of these insect warriors had six legs each of these legs seemed to be more like spikes, a ferocious looking pincers in front of its smaller mouth, a set of eyes near the side of its main body but near to its mouth, and its hide was a hard exoskeleton that almost seemed hard like armor as each of these insect warriors rushed to scout the place digging through the rubble of Talus quarry before each letting out a shriek that seemed to signify that no intruder was in the location before a half human upper abdomen and half centipede bottom came out, the upper half of its body was similar to a human female while the bottom half was all fifteen centipede legs all protected with thick exoskeleton armor but on the armor was a large egg once the centipede lady came out did the leader of the insects came out, a supposed humanoid creature well the only thing human about this creature was its form and stance but everything else was just an insect. Having its entire body covered in exoskeleton armor, Six arms in total but two are used as legs while the first set of arms had almost crab like claws as for the second which hang over the head of this leader these arms had scythe like arms. As for its head, it had almost two compound eyes; a pincer like mouth and on top of its head was two antennae. This leader looked around at its surroundings before approaching the crab like insect and using its feelers communicate with the crab like creature before the crab like creature starts to click its large claw to communicate with the insect warriors to which each of the insect warriors let out a shriek in confirmation to the others of the leader as the insect warriors began to dig into the quarry as the leader went back into the tunnel to check if the intruder dared to follow them as an extra group of twenty insect warriors came out to help defend the large egg as the other insect warriors continue to dig out a perfect hive before the queen eventually hatches from her egg.-

Taking care of Business
DarksiedtheLegend: -As Rotal and Raven were running to get the waterfall would Raven then say out loud-(Raven) “I have my second name picked too. Just hope it doesn’t sound too silly. –At this answer would Rota respond to her as he jumped over some vines-(Rotal)”Your second name might be given to you by your master it differs from clan to clan but it’s usually the master that picks your name but on rare occasions the student gets to pick his or her own name, but that isn’t the case for me as my master from the clan of shadows named me since his name is Translator he decided my name should be his name in reverse Rotalsnart but he didn’t like how it rolled on the tongue so he gave me a first and a last name and thus my name was born Rotal Snart….Hmm that must be your teacher.”
–As Rotal pointed out a man dressed in black robes sitting on bank of the river underneath the waterfall as the waterfall would splash onto the rocky bank as soon as Rotal and Raven got close enough to him did the master pulled out a small tape recorder out of his robe and pressed the play button as a male voice began to talk-(Tape recorder)”Greetings young and lucky student of the clan of darkness…You had been selected by the mysteries powers of destiny to join our clan. And here I stand a humble teacher in the ways of darkness and for your information this is not my actual voice this is a voice of a lackey. HEY! I RESENT THAT MUTE, YOU COULD HAVE AT LEAST CALLED ME SOMETHING ELSE…OKAY I’LL READ THE SCRIPT….The voice is actually someone else but for the sole reason of not trying to confuse you I decided his name would not be revealed as of yet….The person who is holding the tape recorder is known as the Mute and over the duration of your studies he will introduce to other people so while this might not be the last time you hear my voice…you will in fact meet other members of the clan of darkness this way until your graduation….the first lesson mute will teach you and quite possibly me is a simple one, first step take a deep breath now I want you to clear your mind for other distractions like stress, worries and other things cause this very moment you don’t need to worry about anything for this is your time…Your very special relaxing time where nothing will distract you so just relax and let nature be one with you………Can you feel it?
The various energies flowing in the wind, the waterfall splashing, the birds chirping, your own heart beat….Can you hear it….I’m guessing he will stop the tape now so that you can respond to my questions…take your time…you are going to need it.”-At that moment the supposed man named Mute just pressed the stop button on the tape recorder before turning to look at Raven and Rotal, Back to the down the drains shop would Baldrick be the first to respond to what job he wanted to undertake.-(Baldrick) . “I would like to tackle cleaning the sewerage, since I am not afraid to muck about in the tunnels. I don’t think I am up to meat fighting, mainly due to my age, if I was thirty years younger, I would consider it. But that is my choice.” –To which the Boss of the flusher man respond immediately to Baldrick-(Boss)”Very well Mister Turnip Rider, I am going to deduct some job expense, I’ll ask one of the boys to hand you good sturdy shovel probably a gas mask too if we got any left hmm but what about you little Cookie?” –As soon as he finished speaking would Paige speak up as she asked-(Paige) “Well, if my name is Cookie, then…I want to learn to be a meat Fighter, like Rider.”
–As the boss was about to point out the obvious did Baldrick did it for him-(Baldrick) . “You what? But that’s dangerous. Are you truly sure?”(Paige) “Sure as sure. I want to be the best meat fighter the tunnels ever saw.” –To which the Boss chuckled before saying out loud-(Boss)”Well you are looking at the best…” –He let them time to sink this information that the best in meat fighting was the boss that sat right here before he spoke out again-(Boss)”Oh wait before you say anything its not me, it’s the pile of fish bones plaster on my wall….hmm let’s see a few years back there was this fish man…I believed he called himself Gill and boy was he the best, he could take down meats like they were nothing, big muscle meats, acid spitters, bone shooters, ambushing meats…the list goes on but boy he was the best. He stayed in the tunnels longer than anyone else could in years …but always when he came back he proved he was the exterminator of meats everywhere…Man he made everyone looked poor by the amounts he raked in but then…that day accorded….I told him and told him not to mess with a member of the Butchers crew but he didn’t listen, he just believed that because he could take out many meats that he was unstoppable well in the eyes of the meat probably…..He had to push his luck too far and thus he is now a decoration on my walls….but as long as you are sure of it little Cookie, I’ll sign you up….but Miss Rider you going to have to teach her.
”(Rider)”I know.” (Boss)”Also make sure you get her weapon that is appropriate for the job not like most of the other idiots that just want quick cash…Also teach her the ropes, I’m not going to allow her to go and do this if she is ill prepared for the task I won’t have any inexperienced flusher person blood on my hands or conscience for that matter.”(Rider)”I get it now how about Otyughs?” (Boss)“You re kidding me right? I just lost a capable fighting Otyugh to an idiot who doesn’t know the procedures and make matters worse I had to sell my good Otyugh to the breeder so that there might be a slight chance of new Otyughs…Be satisfied that I’m jut deducting their pays for some necessities imagine if I deducted all your pay checks just for single Otyugh…Otyughs don’t grow on trees you know it’s going to take time and I had asked if the Breeders had anything to spare but so far no response but by the distance I might get a response in. two or three days depending on the speed” (Rider)”Alright, I understand Otyughs are rare in this town but what about my contact for that item?”(Boss)”Your contact is doing alright but the sun is up and your contact hates that so he is trying to find the right time to head to the surface.”(Rider)”So no extra paycheck?”(Boss)”As of yet.” -Back to Lorewall as a delivery truck passed the red light would they notice on the other side of traffic heading the opposite direction was a group of five motorcycles driving in a simple straight line formation through the streets of Lorewall as the one at the end of the formation had a flag connected to the back of his motorcycle with the flag flying in the air as the flag read Avenging Angels. –
CharlotteCarrendar:- Keeping up with Rotal’s pace, required some pretty fancy footwork, speed and sure footedness. The jungle like forest setting had a pathway cut through, but still many obstacles which you either had to leap over, or duck under. It was during this part of the journey, that Raven would learn of how the second name was chosen by the Master, and how Rotal, got his name from his Master; Translator. “So it’s backwards?”- Raven stated, but more like a question. Impressed by its simplicity, she now had to wonder, what her Master would call her. On reaching the waterfalls, a man dressed in black robes, awaited their arrival. He turned on a cassette recorder, and the voice that greeted them, was reading from a script, on behalf of the man in black robes. Raven came to an abrupt stop, her heart pounding, as she tried to gather herself, and calm, while listening to the recorded instructions.
When the voice on the recording got uppity over a name he was called. HEY! I RESENT THAT MUTE, YOU COULD HAVE AT LEAST CALLED ME SOMETHING ELSE…OKAY I’LL READ THE SCRIPT” Raven shot a glance at Rotal. This was truly bizarre, for it was like another spoke, what the Master wished, and could not say for him. Time came, at the end of the tape, for the first lesson. The young beblith was to breathe deeply, and clear her mind of thoughts, worries, and dreams for now. The task, was to allow nature, its calls and smells, the abundance of fresh air, and scent, lift her high, higher than she had ever been in her life. The songs of wild birds, brought joy to her heart, as the cool breeze toyed with her hair, and swirled around her, as though enveloping her into its everlasting embrace. “Can you feel it?… Can you feel it?”- Raven extended her arms, her masked face tilting back, for she opened her mind and body, to the nature that was all around her. “I feel it, Master.” Slowly, the bebilith child started to rise up off the ground, her shoes barely touching.
It would be a sight for certain, for the likes of Rotal. Look at what she can do. :: The look on Baldrick’s face, may have been obscured by the mask that he wore, but his eyes told a different story. He had success; chosen to do the work of a flusherman, who cleaned the tunnels with a shovel. “ Ah wonderful, to be useful once more. I know this is something I can do.” Next turn, was Cookie. Would her declaration to become a meat warrior, be frowned on, would she just humiliating herself? It was time for the Boss’s verdict. -(Boss)”Well you are looking at the best…” This was news to both Cookie and Turnip, that the Boss was by far, the best Meat warrior alive. Cookie bit her lip. Was this acceptance, or not? The talk would turn to Gill the fisherman. A warrior, a man that could take down meats easily and without all the mess and destruction. But like all that come to believe their own immortality, or think they will always have the upper hand, his came crashing down, and was now nothing more than a decoration in the Boss’s office. Taking another looks at the bones, made Cookie nervously fidget and tug at her dress edges. The Boss agreed, that she would learn how to be a Meat warrior, but for now with the scarce numbers of Otyughs, it meant that there would be some time before Cookie got one of her own.
Baldrick placed an arm reassuringly around Cookie’s shoulders, and gaze a squeeze. “You starting this war of the Meats, faster than your grandmother could ever do the same. Bless her black heart.” He said with a chuckle. Thinking of his past love, always makes him nostalgic. So there it was, the two now had jobs, and soon, Rider would be getting her share, to help with the living costs of owning your own house. :: In Lorewall, Sora was the first to see the flags of the Avenging Angels. “Look!”- he shouted, taking hold of the steering wheel, to get the truck to pull over off to the side of the road. “That’s the lot Sand said to find. Blast the truck horn, to get their attention, Sis!”- Taru didn’t waste time, quickly pounding her fist on the steering column, to cause the Truck horns to blast, so the AA and Sora with his Sister, could meet. <3>
DarksiedtheLegend: -The Avenging Angels were just cruising along without a care in the world when suddenly a delivery truck honked its horn at them a truck that seems to be going the other way as the leader of this group noticed the truck at his rear view mirror as one of the members of his crew pointed out the obvious-(?)”Why that truck honked at us boss?” –To which the boss calmly reply-(??)”Not sure but let’s check it out.” –As soon as he said that would he made a u-turn to arrive at the back of the truck as the other continued to follow him as he slowed his speed down so that the others would line up next to him on his left and right sides to which they complied driving near to him as two motorcycles were on his right as well as his left as the boss spoke to them all-(??)”Listen here see…if this is the truck with our shipment we don’t do nothing….but if it’s one of those honking tonking trucks then we get to have some fun….prepare the hooks in case but for now circle the truck…” (?)” You mean…. “ (??)”You heard circle the truck.” –To which some of the Avenging Angels laugh a bit before complying as the leader dressed in leather vest with an angel on his back, blue jeans, a simple one piece helmet on his head drove closer to the driver’s side of the truck with one other member tailing him as a third member drove next to the other side of the delivery truck alongside the passenger seat as for the fourth and fifth member they are driving in close behind the delivery truck as the leader would first say to Taru-(??)”What you want to do?”
-Meanwhile back at the supposed Shangri-La would this master note that she was levitating as Rotal took a few steps back as he thought to himself “woah is this how the clan of darkness train” but before he could speak did he notice that her master would reach into his robes to remove another tape as he pressed a button on his tape recorder to which the current cassette with eject out of the tape recorder as he place another cassette tape in as the master lowered the volume before putting it close to his ear or where his ear is supposed to be before nodding his head pressing the rewind button then the play button as a voice of a man spoke but this seemed to have a deeper voice than the first tape altogether-(Tape recorder)”Ahem yeah totally man you can float? I believe….well let me say one thing that is just showing off…I mean great and all that even radical even man but that was not part of your lesson but Cudos man you are floating and not actually pretending….Thats a good thing you know. Alright Mute, I’m going back to surfing man…”-As the master would then stop the tape before removing the tape and putting back the first one as he pressed play-(Tape recorder)”Ahh an excellent thing indeed now let me you the purpose of all this, members of our clan have to feel the air of unfamiliar surroundings everyday in fact we have to be able to read others aura’s and body language without seeing them…If we can detect the aura of man with murderous intent before he even has time to act then we live another day with our secrets intact. Why fight an unnecessary battle when avoiding it is so much simpler.
We of the darkness clan must use this ability to sense at certain distance….in life many people have this ability but they don’t know it and they don’t how far this ability could reach to so everyone is different. This is training is to try and lengthen this special ability while I won’t say just doing this once is enough for even then the most gifted person need to use this ability everyday and train. Let this training dawn on you and consider it homework for now we are actually going to step two…The history…now since you can sense the various auras and energies around, its time you learn the history of the clan you the lucky student that entered into clan of darkness…come closer now for its story time.” –At this mention would Rotal and if Raven opened her eyes to look around would she and he notice that there was children hidden behind some of trees and they were coming out as well as Adults that hid in the river as well as some teenagers, it was apparent that this lesson of Raven wasn’t a private lesson but a group lesson for as one can see there was a group of various age, sizes and genders and if she looked carefully enough she would notice one of the teenagers had a torn shirt with the symbol of the moon on its back as the group got closer to listen did the tape recorder continue to speak
-(Tape recorder)”In today’s time and place we of the darkness clan had chosen to pick certain jobs like beggars, janitors, grave night watchmen, grave diggers, sewer cleaning crews, night patrol men, workers, gardeners, junk men, scavengers and yes even a cleaning crew we are the clan that works in the lowest positions ever, we are the people no one pays attention to, no one looks at us or bothers to care for us we are those that hides in the shadows and we are the clan that has access to anything or any place…People don’t bother giving us a second look while other people would insult us, humiliate us and eventually attack us but we don’t care what others think about us, there is no social standing for the likes of us…. some consider us as the outcasts but ironically we form groups, unions and even communities…In the old days we used to hid in caves and special hidden towns deep within the forest but nowadays in today’s advance technological world we understand the need to adapt so we hid in sewers and hand pick the lowest jobs available so that we won’t be looked at by other people and other people won’t even bother giving us a second glance we are fortunate for this and it is because of our ability to known who has it in it for us, who looks at us funny, which one of these people is mostly likely to attack us, who is following us and even the important question did they see me? In a society where we must stay hidden but remember there are chances that other people will see what’s behind our masks…..but its only because we want them to, we have obtained many various forms of items that allow us to become as beautiful and perfect as Elves, to appear scarred and bruised as war torn soldier and even ugly and horrendous as monsters but in the end we must above all else protect the secret of what we truly are behind our masks for it is the ultimate rule of the mask clans now who has a question? Anyone?”
–As for the dead nation would the boss of the flusher man started to put the finishing touches on his documents before saying-(Boss)”Alright you three get out of my sight, I got other people to deal with as well as make a visit to the town hall to officially register you as flusher people….oh yeah Rider get Cookie a weapon…Don’t worry your weapon would be free but only your first weapon try and find something useful that you would like to use and practical too.”-As Rider would lead them out of the boss office would she then go close to Paige and whisper to her-(Rider)”So what weapon you want?.”
The Raven, the Possum, the Mole, the Armored lady, the Armored man and the Beasts.
iShatteredSanity: -How much time had passed? How many days had passed since the last time that something had happened in Neo Arcadia? Damn… too much, no, WAY too much. After all it was a dead city, an empty shell of its former self. Neo Arcadia, once being the cradle of technology, no barren wastelands. Such a pity… Yet in the ruins of the ruined city, there was life. Yes, several individuals who had tried to find a place to belong, yet they were constantly engaging in fights for survival with all those savage beasts that lurked in every corner. Damn those beasts, the old guardians of the laboratories no free and doing anything they like; but that was to be expected when their masters were gone. Creatures that look harmless, like dogs with vermilion eyes that glow in the dark, yet being vicious and deadly. With enough strength on their jaws to snap a bone with ease, they were surely dangerous to those who could not fight, to kids and elder people. Yeah, they were really dangerous alright, but that was nothing compared to their evolutions once they could feast on fresh meat and/or blood; but that’s a story for a later time. Yet after the constant fights, the constant conflict, those beasts had somehow calmed down. Well, ok, when the warlords entered the stage and slew great numbers of them, they finally realized not to fuck with them. Oh, the warlords, yeah, those need to be mentioned. The warlords are nothing else but the guardians of that huge ass city. Always emerging when the need is there to keep enemies out and to remove all nuisances. In the past their number was that of eight individuals, yet after some of them deciding to abuse their statuses, they were removed and killed. Now only three remained; the oldest one of them, Valkyrion Stargazer, the demented scientist Eon Echo and the mysterious Etherion. Those three were left behind to be the guardian angels, or demons, of a city that with the size of two times New York itself. And lets not forget the underground tunnels and the outskirts. But oh well. Eon was constantly in his lab, Etherion spending some of his time there with Eon or just visiting other realms and Valkyrion was the vigilant eye that was there to make sure that nothing out of the ordinary was to happen. And so he was doing again. Sitting on the edge of one of the tallest buildings in Neo Arcadia, about 600 meters above the ground, he was staring down the city. Dressed in a full black attire, shoes, pants, top, gloves and scarf, Valkyrion was not bothered by the high temperature and the humidity anymore; he had gotten used to it after all. His dual toned gaze was constantly shifting from side to side every now and then, but alas, there was nothing there. Sighing in disappointment and lighting a cigarette, Valkyrion leaned his back backwards and used his massive buster sword as the back of some couch. There was nothing going on, nothing…-
CharlotteCarrendar: ;- Hot…hot, so damn hot. City streets with the rise of fumes that emitted from the grills; and underground vents. Hazy, so hard to see. What this world once was, a jewel of civilization now collapsed into the pits of the darkest of nightmares. Few dared venture out into the nights for fear of the Beasts. Any that did, risked their lives. A chase and the thrill of danger did drive the most daring of dark children. One such night reveller was Rads, otherwise known as Radiant. She was not a native, she was a creation, an experiment. Dressed in the barest of cloth, a simple strap of leather to cover her breasts, short short demin shorts, wee boots of leather. You could see the cream of her skin, with the tribal markings of her clan. With long elf like ears, dotted with strange metal rings, she had acute hearing. Rads could zero in on the Beasts as they moved across the city. With a long spiny tail that had a feather like consistency of quills, mixed in with poison like barbs, she was a formidable creature. The ability to protect herself, the barbs had a fine trace of poison, that if she was under threat, she simply whipped her tail around an opponent’s neck and barbs their skin, injecting, then releasing just as fast to make her getaway. The tail also served to help with climbing; like an extra set of hands, she could swing freely, and open windows of city skyscrapers. Her friends likened her to a skilled possum, with red eyes, that allowed nightvision. She was adapt to the new world. This night we find her, with her bag of tricks, scaling yet another building, in the search for valuables, for the black market trade. Would she be spotted this night, and had her luck finally run out? <3>
SaiyakaNiyamae: “Neo Arcadia. Once a bustling city, a utopia filled with tech for the kids to see, the heaven born from the seeds of Silicone Valley. Now its a shitbag of a ghost town with the beasts on the loose” a calm tone voice said from her mouth not being amused. Her name is Vera “Vex” Niyamaka. A female who was an agent for the International Inteligence Committee, former spy who had great connections. Her unique skills in foresight is exceptionally beneficial, as so technical skills as a computer hacker grated her advantage to her weapons and her equipment on her attire. Vex adorns herself in her skintight H.E.S.S. [Hostile Environment Stealth Suit] rocking her attire well with her natural curves, high heel silent boots, and a flexible secondary spine to allow her to carry more. A calm character who’s level of Sexy is high as her Smarts. Vex checks her M4 once over, placing her cap on her hair done in a ponytail before landing her boat on the shoal. Her white eyes calmly look left and right as she feel the heat from the city streets and air as her suit adjusts to her, as her foresight ability guides her on her way to find shelter as she looks around her without her rifle drawned but her hand on her blade as Vex approaches a building on one of the main streets. She looked up and across the streets and the 3 ominously tall towers picking the lock with a jab of her knife into an empty convenience store door.Vex puts her knife away on her back as she draws her rifle to find anything with its light
iShatteredSanity: -Yeah… Boring, boring and boring again. Valkyrion sighed deeply and shook his head.- [Valkyrion.] “Damn… Perhaps I should go and visit Eon… I don’t know, maybe he is up to som—” –Suddenly he stopped his sentence before he even finished it as he sensed someone.- “We have guests?” –Valkyrion asked himself. His right eye, that of the deep crimson of the blood began to shimmer.- [Stargazer.] “So it seems. Shall we check them out? Or observe for the time being?” –Then the shimmer faded as Valkyrion shook his head.- [Valkyrion.] “Lets get closer to them. I don’t think that those beasts will stay put.” –Valkyrion said and cracked his neck a few times. And he was right, howls and growls began to echo in every corner of the city, sign that the beasts had actually discovered that there were new toys in the game.- “Oh I will be damned. Wait, I am already damned. Better get a closer look.” –Valkyrion said to himself again and pulled up his mask to cover half his face. The only visible skin was that around his eyes and his ears, a good camouflage to hide in the darkness of the dark alleys or the insides of the buildings and the shadows as well. Valkyrion grabbed his sword and secured it on his back, groaning a little bit since the damn thing was heavy and he was a bit out of shape. But nevertheless he could carry it just fine. After securing the massive sword on his back, he just jumped off the building and began a freefall. Not bothering to do a single thing to avoid his fall, he merely stretched his arms a bit and cracked his neck a few more times. Meanwhile the beasts had already began to move towards the newcomers from the shadows but still did not attack, no. They were observing their prey, since everything was prey for them. While freefalling, Valkyrion focused his senses on the presences in the city and he was glad that due to the hot weather everyone was underground where it was more cool; perhaps the city would turn once again in a battlefield. 150 meters, Valkyrion nodded his head. 50 meters, Valkyrion closed his eyes as his body slowly began to shimmer brightly. 10 meters, Valkyrion’s body had now turned transparent. 1 meter, his body dissipated into thin air, leaving only a display of a massive electrostatic discharge behind that was grounded on each surface nearby like tendrils. Several flashes of light began to appear throughout the city, all of them being electrostatic discharges. Along with the lights came the high pitched crackling sounds of the discharges. Due to the excellent hearing, some of the beasts realized that shit was going to get real if they were not careful. Yes, they were afraid of Valkyrion, but at the same time they all despised him. So many of their kind had fallen to him, of course they would want revenge. And so Valkyrion kept moving from place to place throughout the city, making his presence known to everyone before he finally appeared in the middle of the city. As he appeared he carried the kinetic energy of his previous freefall and once his feet made contact with the ground, cracks in a spider web pattern appeared on the ground while a massive sound echoed throughout the city. Whoever was there they would all notice that sound and the cloud of dust that emerged afterwards. If one was to look into that cloud, they could see a dark figure that stood on 6’4” with a massive blade on its back, several discharges around it that lit the figure a bit and a pair of dual toned eyes shimmering softly; crystal blue of the sky for the left eye and deep crimson of the blood for the right. Yes, Valkyrion was there and waited…-
CharlotteCarrendar: Tap tap tap on the glass window. The face of Rads peering into what is now an apartment devoid of life. But what treasures lay within this once plush abode. Hanging by her tail from the rail above, she picks the lock with slender, needle like nails, the lifts the window sash up. Up enough, for the possum like girl to crawl inside. Skitter, scatter, crawl, then up she stood tall. “Hehehehe” –she squeaked with delight, and took out her handy dandy flashlight. The room smelt dank of the musk of human flesh, the furniture covered in sheets and blankets, maybe the host had set to return one day. But alas, now the cities belong to those with means. A street rat, an alley cat. The creature pads through the lounge and spots a clock, its eyes move back and forth, tick toc. Rad’s ears stand up to attention, tail stops swinging and she flicks the cat clock’s tail, only to hear it meow. “HA!” amused greatly by inventions, such as this, she takes it from the wall and stuffs it in her bag; a keeper to be sure. Further along, and to the main bedroom. All perfectly made, and a sweet retreat. Rads knew that this may well be a wonderous place to sleep. But outside, the beasts did sound their terror din. “Fuck!”- she stomped her foot, knowing to stay there would be dangerous for her. A quick skip to the dressor and there lay a small silver box, containing baubles and rings. She tipped the contents into her bag, and then saw a glimpse of herself, in the mirror. A tilt of the head, side to side, side to side. Rads peered closer and then smirked, as she pulled faces and chuckled with mirth. “HA!” Another loud noise from outside the building and Rad’s froze. “Whatwasthat? Whatwasthat?” said rapid fire, a nervous trait. Dropping the box upon the floor, she raced back to the window and poked her head out to see, as a dark tall being with a humungous sword, was far below. Sparks like a light show, did dazzle the timid Rads, who climbed out the window and hung upside down, observing closely. “Man.”<3>
SaiyakaNiyamae: Vex feels the air around her feeling the static in the environment. “What the?” she sees the lights in the convenience store flicker on and off as she wisely stepped outside towards the street after seeing electrostatic discharges approach the ground. Vex’s silverbright eyes looks at the figure dampened by the clouds of dust as she slowly moves back gaining information with her foresights alone. She determines that its a threat, but knows if she lays a finger on her weapon she will get caught at the mercy of her target. Vex wisely engages her cloak ability on her suit as her entire figure becomes invisible to anyones eye. She wisely backs off and hides in a damaged building on her way to the third level silently prepping her rifle with the silencer. She slowly walks up to the edge of the shattered window taking cover behind a pillar with a hole on the floor of the third level looking down covering the entire intersection. Vex sees a male with a big sword about the length of him clearly within her optic sights of her rifle. “Not yet. Don’t fire….” she calmly says to herself. “Im not the only one here if this guy made a huge ruckus.” Vex relies on her foresight senses to find anything else moving around her area-
iShatteredSanity: -And yes, Valkyrion was there, once again making another flashy entrance. The cloud of dust had began to settle down and spread on the whole area when his right eye, the deep crimson of the blood, shimmered once more.- [Stargazer.] “Is this your way of observing something? Why don’t you grab a loudspeaker and yell ‘hey hey hey, we are here’, huh? Seriously now…” –He said and the shimmer faded out again. The man sighed once more and cracked his neck.- [Valkyrion.] “Oh shut up. I guess I overdid it a bit. But it has been a long time since someone appeared in here. So shut up.” –Valkyrion said and took a deep breath while closing his eyes and exhaled it shortly afterwards. Several moments had passed and the cloud had almost settled down completely while the discharges around his frame had already stopped.- “One…” –He said to himself.- “Two…” –He said again and took a few more deep breaths and opening his eyes.- “The rest are just nuisances.” –Valkyrion said with a face blank of any expression. Well, of course he was wearing a mask that could hide any facial expressions, but still he made none.- “The question is, friend or foe?” –Valkyrion said and cracked his neck a few more times before lifting his shoulders and stretching his arms again.- “Foe means that I will get some exercise… I hope for the later…” –Valkyrion said and let his arms hang down before he rose his right hand to grab the handle of his blade. But still, despite all that conversation with himself and all of his movement, he did not move from the spot that he had appeared in the slightest. Meanwhile the beasts had already began gathering to see what was going on. One could see their vermilion eyes shimmering dangerously in the shadows while they were howling and hissing. It was hunting time for them and they observed their prey a bit more; after all they knew better than anyone not to jump on any warlord’s throat since they would simply perish.-
SaiyakaNiyamae: Vex’s relaxes herself as her foresight focuses around her well being. Still invisible to anythings eye, she calmly rests herself on the third floor focusing herself to either take the shot or not. But then, Vex hears movement in the building, just under her body on the second floor, the noise from a group of beasts, 8 of them with weird looking eyes thats not familiar to her. She holds her breath calming her heart down as she looks at them with her white eyes noticing them just looking foreword at the man standing in the middle if the intersection. Vex calmly does nothing except hear and feel the area around her. ‘Fuck are these things’ she thought to herself as she prepares her body to move-
CharlotteCarrendar: – Leaping, releasing her tail only to land upon the fireman’s escape. Crawling down with tail curling round. Rads is once again on the move. You hear the clang of boots on metal. It can’t be avoided. Down down, finally the alley she reaches; a flip and then landing smartly, boots centred, fists curled. Eyes dart and a rise of her head, she sniffs the air. The Beasts do call, their cries and growls fill the everlasting night. What of the Sun, that had long left this city and the moon only to bathe all in its sickly glow. Behind an industrial bin, she creeps and peeps. “Whosethat? Whosethat?’ Said to all and no one. A light trembling of her form and she strains to hear. Does the man speak to himself? Is he mad…bad..sad…glad…or whacko like everyone else? It is too dangerous to move as yet. Another scent, that carries over the stench of foul waste. “ANOTHER?” Rads tries to see and catches a glimpse. A curvaceous woman, with weapons that do more than pop. “Ohnononononononono…..no” <3>
iShatteredSanity: -There would be an eerie silence in the area if the beasts would stop howling and hissing. Alas, nothing could be perfect. Oh well… Still, there was this sensation that could make one’s hair on their neck stand, or send shivers down their spines. Yes, it was a bit creepy and somehow the atmosphere was electrified; in his case not by Valkyrion himself. Valkyrion was still standing on the very same spot he had landed, not making a move but still holding the handle of his massive blade on his back.- [Valkyrion.] “Seems like this is a game of hide and seek…” –He mumbled to himself as he shifted his dual toned gaze towards the building where the beasts seemed to have sensed something. Narrowing his eyes a bit he hoped that the beasts would not make a move since the presences he felt were located there. Alas, as said earlier, nothing was perfect. The group of the beasts began to grow in numbers. 10, 12, 16, 20. They were just looking up on the building. Valkyrion knew all too well that they were just waiting for more numbers to arrive. But he also knew that on each side of the buildings more and more groups of beasts had appeared. Their tactic was simple really, attack from every direction and cut off any chance of advancing or retreating. Simple tactic really, but very good.- “Stargazer, what do you think? Go and play? Or just watch from here?” –Valkyrion asked and the right eye shimmered once again.- [Stargazer.] “How about some small demonstration?” –The shimmer of the eye faded and Valkyrion nodded his head.- [Valkyrion.] “Good idea. Here it goes.” –Valkyrion said and once again his body turned transparent before it dissipated into thin air, leaving only a display of electrostatic discharges behind. While Valkyrion was having a conversation, to what some people would seem, with himself, the beasts had already began to make a move. Extending their claws they began to move up on the building. But it was right on that moment that Valkyrion appeared out of nowhere and pretty much stomped on the beasts that had advanced and moved upwards on the building, throwing them down on the ground and managing to break the ribs of some of them.- “Sorry about that, but you could not have forgotten about me, did you?” –Valkyrion said and a surge of electricity was seen running through his eyes and from his feet up to his head. The beasts moved backwards and bared their fangs at him while growling.- “Yes… Come on.” –Valkyrion said and closed his eyes once again. All the while he spoke he was very calm and collected. Nothing seemed to roil the tranquility in his mind. And so the beasts took a leap forward. Their target? Valkyrion himself. Meanwhile the other beasts had managed to sneak in from the other sides of the building and were drawing near to the two other beings that were hiding inside the building. Oh this was going to be fun.-
CharlotteCarrendar: Highly sensitive. Designed to pick up the smallest sound, with her long ears that twitched and flicked till suddenly becoming still. The beasts were getting closer and she knew that to stay in one place was madness itself. “UhohUhohUhohUhoh” Again, her voice was so fast, it was more like a ramble, that actual phrases. Bag secured, the flap down, she raised her head, and then with the sharp flick of her head, she ran. Sprinting along, her tail aloft, puffed out with barbs on show. Reaching the corner of a wall, she peeked around and saw them. Beasts, gathering in number, swelling in size. Fire of demons in their eyes. Swallowing hard, her chest pounding, with fear compounding. She needed to return to the “burrow” as it was known. But would she make it? <3>
SaiyakaNiyamae: “That Sadistic man..” she whispered to herself. Vex’s foresight acts up again seeing her situation not go the way as planned. But in anycase she’s always prepared to kick ass whenever she needs to.”Fine I guess we can play a game tonight” Vex flicks off the safety on her rifle as her suit’s cloak ability turns off as she sees the beasts break off and hunt. Timing herself to the millisecond she throws 2 c4 blocks on the doorway and arming it with a remote on her glove as a detonator. Vex then grabbed a second magazine for her rifle as she unmuzzled her silencer as her suit energizes for her strength and endurance. She sprints out on the third floor to a desk thats leaning on a cracked window as Vex detonated the charges when 30 beasts finally made it to the doors. The blast from the 2 C4 blocks rattle the building violently as Vex rides the shockwave into the desk as she falls 3 stories landing the desk on a 3 beasts. “Bad boys!!! You all need a punishment.” -her masked face gives no emotion apart from her sadistic eyes as she unloads a full auto assault onto the beasts exiting the building where she came from.
iShatteredSanity: -10 feet, Valkyrion still had his eyes closed. 5 feet, still his eyes closed. A bit less than 1 foot… Valkyrion could feel the breaths of the beasts on him and the stench reaching his nostrils underneath his mask. That was when he opened his eyes and calmly bend his knees, his palms touching the ground.- [Valkyrion.] “You still have a long way to go… Now, begone.” –Valkyrion mumbled as a massive surge of electricity was released. The surge was released from his body and was attached on everything in the vicinity like tendrils. Then he rose back on his full height as more and more electricity was being released from his body and attacking the beasts who were shot backwards from the sudden blast of his attack. Valkyrion clapped his hands once and kept them connected while the voltage and the amperage was increased, literally frying those beasts alive. Howls and growls of agony filled the area, along with the smell of charred flesh. Valkyrion merely watched the beasts as they were dying in an excruciating pain, yet his expressions did not change. And then it happened. An explosion on the building that made it shake violently. Arching an eyebrow, Valkyrion shot another blast of electricity, releasing the beasts from their pain and killing them on the spot as he looked that thing that jumped off the window.- “Foe…” –Valkyrion mumbled and once again grabbed the handle of his massive blade, unsheathing it and holding the tip forward, facing that thing.- “I know that it has been some time since I last used you. But you had enough rest. Awaken, SoulMancer…” –Valkyrion said and a bright red light emerged from the sword, splitting it in half and holding it with those arms. Then 10 smaller blades detached from the main blade and began flying around Valkyrion’s frame who was staring at the armored thing.- “I don’t know who or what you are, but you made a huge mistake…” –He said and stabbed his sword on the ground but still held it with his right hand all the while the blades were still flying around his frame.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – A loud explosion, and Rads covers her head with her arms to try and block out the sound. The invader. Must have been. Dead and dying beasts. Flashes of light, fire. Roars to nothing. Madness. Rads had to get out of there! Across the street, a sewer cap pushes up, and a goggled creature waves to Rads. Trying to urge her to run. The possum like girl rocked back and forth, and then she drew her fist, to give her courage, and with a burst of speed, she raced across the street, the street cap moving and Rads leapt down…down …down.. finally landing on an old mattress. She rubbed her bum for a good minute, while the goggled creature closed over the man hole. He clamoured back down the ladder, and crawled over to Rads. He made rapid hand movement, speaking with his fingers. Gesturing up top, and then making an explosion with his hands, stretching out his arms. Then seeing her bag was bulging, he grinned, his stained teeth clearly visible. Snatching the bag from her, he emptied it on the mattress, the baubles and rings discarded. Rads quickly snatched up the cat clock and played with it, while the goggled boy found a small box of biscuits. A silent laugh, and he tore it open, ripping the inner packaging. He ate hungrily, while Rads played with the cat’s tail. “HA!” <3>
iShatteredSanity: -And… Well… Yeah. As soon as Valkyrion released the first seal of his blade and it was semi-awakened, he knew that it was a sight to fear. And that thing seemed to realize that as well. Seeing Valkyrion getting ready for some epic fight, she decided to run away, perhaps because she was scared, perhaps because she needed to think of a better tactic to approach again. Valkyrion did not know, but he was disappointed.- [Valkyrion.] “At least you run pretty fast…” –He said and sighed deeply as he removed his sword from the ground and pointed the blade in the sky.- “SoulMancer, go back to sleep. Your prey is gone.” –The 10 blades that hovered around his frame once again attached themselves on the main blade and the slit sealed. Then he secured his sword back on his back and nodded to himself.- “Now, there is still some rat around here.” –He said and walked towards the street, looking around and cracking his neck a few times.- “I only have one question, are you a friend, or are you a foe?” –Valkyrion asked while more and more electrical surges were released from his body, for just in case.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – Playing with the Clock, tic toc, the Cat tail amusing Rads, as her brother eats. Another failed experiment; a mole boy who can’t hear. He can see in the darkness and forage the tunnels, the sewers and what people throw away. It is Rads who goes above, and gets food and other trinkets to trade with. But high above the call of beasts had ended. Perhaps the Lords of the Towers have descended. Radiant holds still as her ears strain to hear. A voice, high above. “I only have one question, are you a friend, or are you a foe?” Her brother cannot hear, for he munches happily on the crackers. He loves salty things. Pressing her hand to his shoulder, she motions she is going up, and he sees the cat clock, and picks it up to play with it, as she climbs back up the shaft, and pushes back the manhole cover. At first, she sees nothing, and a false sense of security, she exits quickly, kicking the lid back in place. She turns, and then comes face to face. Nervous stutter, like that of a nutter. “M..M..M..M..Man.” Frozen in place, nowhere to go, and brother below, she waits for his attack. <3>
iShatteredSanity: -Well, in the case of a foe, Valkyrion was ready to strike the other creature that he had sensed earlier. And ok, with someone being like a freaking lightning rod, of course one could guess that; it was dead obvious. Valkyrion’s dual toned gaze fell on the strange anthropomorphic creature that appeared and tilted his head to the right. He could see that it was a female…errr, something, and that she was scared. Tilting his head back to its place, he closed his eyes and the surges of electricity slowly dissipated into thin air, leaving the air hotter than earlier.- [Valkyrion.] “I guess that you are not a foe.” –He said and walked towards her, stopping only 2 feet away from her and scanning her frame from head to toe. Then he pulled his mask down to reveal his face as he spoke.- “What’s your name?” –He asked and waited for her reply.-
CharlotteCarrendar: :- Her bag was far below, her brother sitting and playing with the cat clock, and here she was, faced off with the Lord of the Towers, as he was known to the rabble of the sewers. Failures, experiments gone wrong, wasted beings that had no place in any society. The man before her was simply huge, intimidating and crackled like the lightning that strikes the earth. He had a big sword, and that was enough to cause worry. Her knees caved together, and she seemed to be getting smaller. To run would be foolish, and she could not leave guard of the man hole cover. [Valkyrion.] “I guess that you are not a foe.” Rads understood English and shook her head violently, her hair of wispy blonde locks flying about. “Nofoe Nofoe Nofoe Nofoe.” She said rapidly, and held up her hands, like she was under arrest. He pulled down his mask, revealing chiselled features. Not half bad looking, but there was no time for sexy chat. Swallowing, on hearing the next question, she uttered her name. “R..ra..R..ra…Rads…Radiant..R.radiant.” Her tail curled around her defensively, in case he tried to pick her up…and eat her.<3>
iShatteredSanity: -Valkyrion stood there and watched the strange woman before him who was really nervous and anxious. But why? Though he had to admit, she was very innocent looking and she seemed pure. Pure, huh? That thought made him shake his head. It was funny. Anyway. Looking back at her, he waited for her name. Rads… Radiant. Valkyrion nodded his head.- [Valkyrion.] “Radiant. I see. Weird name, but nice one. I am Valkyrion.” –He said and suddenly his right eye shimmered bright as his voice got a bit more hoarse than before.- [Stargazer.] “Oi asshole, I am here too. And I am Stargazer.” –Stargazer said the shimmer faded away with Valkyrion sighing.- [Valkyrion.] “Yeah, and Stargazer too.” –Obviously Radiant would think that he was insane, not far from the truth, but still more sane than the other warlord, Eon.- “By the way…” –Valkyrion pointed down the ground.- “…who is that guy down there? Friend of yours?” –Valkyrion asked again. All the while he spoke his voice was calm and collected. Meanwhile the beasts once again had bean circling around them, this time in bigger numbers, something that Valkyrion of course had noticed but chose to ignore since after all they were insignificant creatures.-
CharlotteCarrendar: For a Lord, he talked a lot. Introducing himself as Valkyrion, and then some other voice, one called Stargazer, that shimmered away from sight. Very odd, very odd. Keeping her hands up, for fear he might think she was reaching for something, she then heard him ask about the one down the hole. UH OH. This was about her “brother” or at least what she regarded as one. “…who is that guy down there? Friend of yours?” Rads tried to lower her hands, and answer at the same time. “Mmmole..Mmmole…MOLEYMOLEY MOLEYMOLEYMOLEY…..Mole.” Yes, well, that was his name, and thankfully Mole couldn’t hear her up top. “Mole.” She pointed to the manhole cover. But then, it dawned on her they were surrounded by beasts. Her tail rocketed out from around her form and the barbs stood on end. She crouched, and aimed her tail at one beast. Ready….steady…PINK!” A barb dart would rocket towards a beast’s left eye- <3>
iShatteredSanity: -Valkyrion stood there, calm and unaffected by the whole situation, actually amused by that weird creature that went by the name Radiant. On his question about the person underground, she began stuttering? Uhm… mumbling? He could not tell because she was talking really fast. But he caught the name, Mole.- [Valkyrion.] “Mole, huh?” –He shrugged his shoulders slightly.- “I guess that for someone who is underground, that fits in perfectly.” –He said and then looked at Radiant who got ready for a fight. As the beasts draw closer, he looked at her firing something from her tail. What was that, a needle or something? Surely the beast that was hit by it could say for sure. But Valkyrion was just standing there calm.- “You don’t have to do a single thing Radiant. It will be over in a matter of moments.” –And true. From behind the beasts, ten feather like objects that were surging with electricity and formed some sort of laser beams as each tendril of electricity was connected on all feathers, they began to attack those beasts. Within a matter of moments those feathers that danced elegantly in the air had already slew all the beasts in the vicinity; not that there were too many of them.- “See? I told you.” –Valkyrion said and looked on his right.- “Though… Nah, I will deal with him.” –Valkyrion said and noticed a dark figure that was wearing an armor and walked towards him. The feathers from earlier attached themselves on the armor’s back, forming wings. The electricity that was coming off that armor was just like a tree with its branches. And suddenly, the electric surges stopped while the armor slowly dissipated as if it was sand on a table.- [Eon.] “So… I was testing Optimus when Sentinel told me that you were going balls out here. What’s wrong?” –The man with the black attire, glasses, pale skin and numerous stitches on his face said before looking at Radiant.- “Who the fuck is she? Aren’t you quite the player here?” –The man said and chuckled as he approached Valkyrion and stopped walking right next to him. Valkyrion shook his head as he spoke.- [Valkyrion.] “Eon, meet Radiant. Radiant meet Eon.” –Eon looked at Radiant and shrugged his shoulders.- [Eon.] “Not interested.” –Suddenly Eon felt the presence of another one hiding underground.- [Valkyrion.] “And that’s mole.” –Valkyrion said.- [Eon.] “Mole. Fitting. Oh well…”
CharlotteCarrendar: Aim was true for the barb did strike the beasts, but lo another was to join the fray and this one was going to make sure the beasts paid for their rage and hunting of the innocents. The Lord, Valkyrion stood so calm and serene, in what could have been a fierce battle. Panting and ready to fire again, Rads was told she did not need to do another thing. Confusion reigned, as each was taken down. Feather objects surging with electricity was used to combat the beasts. Dancing feathers, beating the foul beasts? Rads needed to rub her eyes, for surely they played tricks. “See? I told you.” He did, and Rads started to draw back her tail and attempting to stand tall. “No no no no no …Yes.”- She stuttered. Then a shadow befell Rads, and she spun around gasping, as Eon came on the scene. Introductions were brief, and Eon did not seem interested in Rads one bit. Which was a relief, after the day she had so far. [Valkyrion.] “Eon, meet Radiant. Radiant meet Eon.” –Eon looked at Radiant and shrugged his shoulders.- [Eon.] “Not interested.” Radiant pipped up and said. “Notnotnotnotnot Interested notnotnotnot.” A clang from the man hole cover and it slid back, for the boy Mole, to emerge. He saw those gathered and yanked on his “Sister’s” leg, wanting her to come. She waved her hand and pointed out Mole, who waved and then right back on trying to pull her back down the hole. <3>
iShatteredSanity: -Both Eon and Valkyrion looked at Radiant as she began speaking fast again, in which Eon rolled his eyes and looked at Valkyrion.- [Eon.] “Please tell me that you did not sap her, nor gave her any drugs, not gave her any coffee nor sugar. But anyway, she is all yours, I am heading back to the lab to finish Optimus. Adieu.” –Eon said and before Valkyrion had the chance to reply, Eon had already formed that armor from before and used the feathers and the thrusters on the boots to fly away in the northern outskirts of the city.- [Valkyrion.] “I swear, one of these days I will kick your ass… Oh well…” –Valkyrion said and looked back at Radiant and Mole who had just popped out of the hole and yanked Radiant’s leg.- “So… What are you two doing here?”
CharlotteCarrendar: – Mole was putting up a good fight trying to pull his wayward Sister back down into the safety of the sewers, only to have her bend down and quickly sign to him she was okay. He blinked behind darkened goggles, and then lowered back down, pulling the manhole cover back over for protection. The mean one, who said “Not” took his leave, saying something about going back to his lab. Rad’s waved and said “AdieuAddieuuu.” Now it was just the Lord of the Towers and Rads, and she appeared nervous again in his company. “So… What are you two doing here?” that was a good question and being he was the Lord of the Towers, and she had been stealing from them, she was a bit apprehensive to tell. “Fooood.” It was simple, she was merely trying to find food to feed her brother. <3>
iShatteredSanity: [Valkyrion.] “Food?” –He asked and looked around, turning his head from left to right.- “There is food. Over there.” –Valkyrion said and pointed the dead beasts bodies that lied down on the street, painting the ground with their crimson blood.- “There is nothing else around here. And that meat does not taste that bad. But I don’t eat it.” –Valkyrion said again and turned around, his back facing Radiant now, not an act of arrogance, but because he was just looking around.-
CharlotteCarrendar: The idea of eating the beasts that were slain by Eon and Valk, seemed a bit odd to the Possum girl. She didn’t want to appear ungrateful, but the look on her face was one of sadness. She did have to wonder just what did Valkryion eat. Not all that sure as what to do, she then bowed before the Lord of the Tower, and skittered over towards one of the dead beasts. Radiant gave the body a kick and then made a nervous chuckle, before, sitting down beside it, and picking up its right hand. She then pretended to eat the beast, hoping it would satisfy his curiosity and maybe head on his way. “Omnomnomnomnom….yes. Goodgood. Yesyes. Bai Bai.” Would it work? <3>
iShatteredSanity: -Valkyrion did have his back facing Radiant and he could hear her moving towards the beasts nearby. Turning his head he looked at her and wondered if she was really eating those beasts.- [Valkyrion.] “I guess that you must be hungry. At least they are deep fried too. Rare opportunity.” –Valkyrion said and walked towards her, taking out two chocolate bars from his pocket.- “When you are done with those, eat this. It will clean the taste from their meat.” –He said, noticing that she was not actually eating it but pretending to. Of course he himself played along.- “There is no food nearby. Those beasts are the only food source, unless someone is able to teleport to other places and bring food back here.” –Valkyrion explained some of the situation to Radiant. Hell, he had been speaking a lot today.-
CharlotteCarrendar: Caught out by Valkyrion, she spat out the finger of the beast, when she saw the two chocolate bars. Rad’s gasped, and on taking the chocolates in her hand, she brought them to her nose to sniff. Nothing made her happier in the world, than to have a treat like chocolates. Placing them in her pocket, she sighed when he said the beasts were the only food around, unless she could teleport, which she couldn’t. Faced with this, she knew there was nothing else for it, and snapped off a Beast finger and crunched on it, a tear rolling down her cheeks. <3>
CharlotteCarrendar: The beast meat finger was not that bad, but she had tasted nicer things. However, in her pocket was chocolate bars, and she had a craving for those, like no other. Getting up, she skittered back over to the manhole cover, and kicked it open, before dropping one of the chocolate bars down it. Radiant was about to open the second one, when she saw the Lord of the Towers walk away and sit down on the ground. In her hand she had the chocolate bar, that was obviously his. Maybe he really wanted them, and gave them to her out of kindness. Unwrapping it, she snapped the bar in half, and went to sit beside him, offering him the half of the chocolate bar. “ValkValkyshare?” Nudging and trying to give him half. <3>
iShatteredSanity: -Valkyrion had already sat down and looked up in the sky. Yes, that gray and ominous sky of the World’s End. No rain, no snow, no sun ever reached the ground of the city, despite the need for some. And since none of that could reach it, of course there was no life. Yet in Eon’s lab, that demented genius had his own garden to produce his own food. As for Valkyrion, he was simply teleporting to other areas to grab something to eat; of course he never paid and that resulted in some epic fights, but that’s a story for another time. Suddenly he felt Radiant nearby, offering him some of the chocolate that he had given her earlier. Shaking his head, Valkyrion declined the offer.- [Valkyrion.] “Nah, that’s yours. And the other is for mole. But you should eat this after the meat to clean up the taste.” –Valkyrion said and took out a cigarette from his chest pocket, lighting it with the ignition of electric sparks in his right hand.-
The Mysterious Mister Digger
DarksiedtheLegend: -Rider would stop to ponder on the thought before saying-(Rider)”Back to my source.”-Rider would get on the Otyugh before helping Raven on to the Otyugh as Rotal went deeper into the tunnel until he was at considerable distance would he place the box of vials at the back of a cart at his small encampment along with other grey robed beings, he then approached the fire place of the camp where other men and women as he sat down one of them asked him-(?)”What took you so long Rotal?” (Rotal)”Unusual circumstances…” (?) “And what are they exactly?” (Rotal)”I met a girl that held black liquid in her body.” (?)”Impossible, those who have the water transplanted are either dead or became something else.” (Rotal)”I know that but she said that her mother passed it to her” (?) ’How troubling indeed, let alone the fact that it’s in her but also someone of that era survived to pass it to their offspring. Should we tell the master?’ (Rotal)”No, I don’t think so I think we need to tell an elder or someone like that.” (?)”Not the master? Why?” (Rotal)”This little girl isn’t one of us and doesn’t even what we are let alone knows what is inside of her.” (?)”She isn’t a descendent of our kind…. Yet she has black liquid in her. This is really troubling circumstances.” (Rotal)”That’s the reason we need to bypass the bureaucracy and get to the top so that we would be allowed to issue a test.” (?)”I’ll inform the translator of your decision.” (Rotal)”While you are there shouldn’t you check on your sister Zag?” (Zag)”She would rather have been here rather than in the hospital but I will tell her of your concern” –As Zag would enter their own makeshift portal into the hidden underworld that is underneath Nemaeus.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- Question answered. It was now time to return to the source. Raven took one last look at the tall grey robed man, who had started his own journey down the opposite direction of the tunnels. With the helping hand offered by Rider, Raven was able to master climbing onto the back of the Otyugh. Seating herself securely, she drew her hand up and pulled the hood down, to cover her hair line. The mask now fixed back in place, she kept quiet as Rider would start the trip back to the source. “What exactly do the black wrist bands do?”- A child is naturally one of a curious nature. It is how they learn of the things and the world around them. Raven was still only 12 years old, so there was much about life and the dangerous world she had entered that she did not know, or understand. “Have you met that man before? Why do I feel tired…what was that stuff in the viles?”- Questions questions questions. She rocked back and forth, as the Otyugh made its way through the sludge and dirty waters. Again more questions. “Why was he nice to me about the black?” <3>
DarksiedtheLegend: -Rider would attempt to answer her questions because as little as Raven knew so did Rider knew so little after encountering Rotal it had opened Rider’s mind-(Rider)”I don’t what the wrist bands do but all I do know is that there is a buyer on the surface who was willing to pay big just to get one of these things, my source said no one knows where one can get this item but apparently he had some guesses on where it could be but I remembered coming here with a man named Mister Digger and I recalled he had one of those wrist bands on him. The price alone got me worried that it might be an impossible job to accomplish but when we met Rotal…I’m beginning to worry that this wrist band is a weapon or even something to do with the black liquid. As for those vials I have no idea and I have never met Rotal till this day and to be frank I have no idea why he was being so nice to you but maybe he knows way more than what he is telling…I think we haven’t seen the last of him. ”-upon returning to the source would Rider just hand her source one black wrist band while keeping the other one hidden from her source to which the source would just make some more grring-(?)”Grrrrrrr grgrg gggggr grrrr grr grrrrrrrrr grr gr gr gr gr.” (Rider)”Snarl bark grr” (?)”Grrr gr gr grg grrrrrrr grrrrrrrr gr” –Rider would tip her hat before patting on the Otyugh to continue moving along as Rider and Raven would be making their way back to her home as she said to Raven once they were far from the flush men and women hub-(Rider)”I’m anxious to see if the trio of brothers made your papers and your sister… I am going to need a lot more help in making the payments for the rest of your family.”
CharlotteCarrendar:- Rider didn’t have much information on the man in the grey robe. Aside from the fact that he had the items that her source required. What were these black arm bands? As Raven listened, she sniffed slightly, but no black appeared. The vial had done the trick for now at least. Whatever it was that was part of her being, it was in fact asleep. Thoughts came to the one known as Mr Digger. A strange name, and he sounded so mysterious. He wore the black armed band. Could he be one to carry the black too? Thinking quietly, her ears pricked on one piece of information. That whoever wanted it, was willing to pay a high price and they were from the surface. Thinking back, she remembered what was said of the surface dwellers. Those left behind by the fleets. Raven’s head bowed for a moment. She had always the utmost respect for the settlers of Nemeaus. Those that started their lives again on the new world. But she had no idea of the people beneath, left behind. Though her own mother was not part of the Nemauen resettlement, Taru had told her daughter, of the underworld. But this underworld was not the same. Raven quietened on reaching the source, who made a lot of growling and such, snarling at Rider who handed over one of the wrist bands. Raven knew there was two, so why did she keep one and not trade? Raven knew her place was to keep quiet, and then when they had pulled away, and Rider spoke of needing more help to make the payments to help get papers for her family, Raven said. “Would the brothers three know of the black bands?” <3>
DarksiedtheLegend: -Rider would be thinking about what could be the use of the black wrist bands before responding to Raven’s question of the trio of brothers-(Rider)”I don’t know but I suspect they might know something…They get food, water, shelter and haven’t even actually been bothered by any member of the butcher’s men. Isn’t that suspicious enough? Their shop is even made out of better quality material than other places and no one dares bother them if they do anything but even then no one has seen them do anything out of the ordinary or even come out to restock their supplies.” –As the Otyugh would be making its travel back to Rider’s little house.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – From what Raven had seen and heard of the trio of Brothers, they each seemed to have their own set up. One had good food, another had bad, the third, well he was somewhat mystical,and offered even to tell fortunes. This made them special in her eyes. Not only that, they had access to a great many things. She then recalled, how one of them used a portal. The light bulb went off over her head. “Wait…we came here via a gate. It was opened by the staff that contained the spider. And I know one of the brothers, was able to open a portal. Could it be…that these three have been to my world, or can access others? What if, they had more power than say…the Butcher himself? How else would they come to such good supplies?” Raven was thinking logically, from her small observations. She could wrong, but, she could could also be right. <3>
DarksiedtheLegend: (Raven) “Wait…we came here via a gate. It was opened by the staff that contained the spider. And I know one of the brothers, was able to open a portal. Could it be…that these three have been to my world, or can access others? What if, they had more power than say…the Butcher himself? How else would they come to such good supplies?-Rider would seem puzzled by the mention of the word portal and even the mention that they might be stronger than Butcher himself made Rider think for awhile before responding –(Rider)”I really don’t know much about them other than the fact that only flush men and women enter their shops since most other shops refuse to give us food, weapons or even sometimes clothing… well except for the Down the drain shop. No one is really sure about them cause mostly these are rumours about them and it is quite questionable if they are more powerful than the Butcher. But it that could explain why the Butcher hasn’t even bothered facing them or sending his men over there…. But its odd at the same.” –As the Otyugh returned back at to the hoe of Rider as she dismounted from the Otyugh as she then offered her hand to help Raven down.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- The mask was rubbing against the surface of her skin, and she reached up to scratch, but her fingers came down on the mask surface. Raven had many questions, but sadly Rider didn’t have the answers that she sought. The three brothers were one of few businesses that did trade with the flusher men and women. To Raven, this meant that they were looked down upon by the society of the tunnels. She thought this was wrong, and that anyone should be able to shop anywhere. Refusing service to such kind people. Why were things like that? Raven lowered her hand, and gripped the side of the Oytugh. Raven’s deductions were on to something when it came to the Butcher and the three brothers. Course, there was only one way to find out. Raven had already offered to work for them. That had bore no fruit. Now she turned her mind to her kin, and her grandfather. Getting papers was paramount. She apologised to Rider. “Perhaps I am over thinking things. My mind seems cluttered, and no sooner has one issue gone, another piles up in its place.” On reaching the home of Rider, Raven was offered a hand to allow her to dismount. Swinging her leg over, she then dropped down, squarely on her feet, and waited for Rider to take them inside <3>
