12/12/2012
Sunset.
Vatican City, Rome.

The sunset shone through the open blinds of one of the windows that lined the sides of the second-story passageway. The deep navy blue curtains that were held back by a thick golden cord allowed just the right amount of light into the hall, so that the figures pacing it's length would be capable of seeing their surroundings. A group of figures traversed the Hall, approaching the ensuing room with haste, their urgent footsteps bordering on a speedy pace, and the tension that they felt was catching. The first of the figures had neared the end of the Hallway, and signalled to the Guards in front of the door. The two guardians bowed slightly, and then pulled open the double-doors, which allowed a bright, and certainly unnatrual light to shine through. The group of people entered the room, and the door was shut, and locked, behind them. Unknown to them, a few meters away, crouching on the edge of a pillar and partially cloaked in the ensuing darkness, were a pair of glowing, icy blue eyes. A mouth appeared, showcasing a grin that would've extended beyond the cheekbones of any mortal man. The teeth were mostly straight and human-like, but the canines were far too long, and they seemed to be growing even longer every second, glinting dangerously in the last rays of the Sun.

"Yes, my Father, they have arrived under the protection of the Sun, but their shield is already falling, and soon, so shall they. At least, the more powerful ones shall, as is your bidding, my Father".


The mouth and eyes disappeared, and the sound of many ravens crowing, and many wings flapping, was heard, and a small bird-like creature flew toward a window on the side of the Building.

-------------------

Inner Sanctum.

A fist banged down on the table, sending a shockwave through the wood and causing a few of the items to fall off and smash onto the floor, spreading glass and other sharp objects spraying across the ground. The long, blonde hair of the agitated male to whom the fist belonged was in dismay, as if he had recently been attacked, or at least frightened out of his wits.

"I demand that we follow through with the plan! Who knows what may happen if we wait, the Devil may be raising his army already, and a portal to Gehenna, Erebus, Purgatory, whatever it is you wish to call it, may be openeing as we speak. The Devil's messenger spoke as if the fight was already beginning!".


"Hush, Arthur. Anger and chaos are just what our enemy wishes for us to have. We must be patient, and wait until the time is right. When we know our opponents weaknesses, then we may attack".

The man raised his head, eyes sparkling with anger. He blinked a few times and coughed, finally bowing his head in submission and muttering an apology. The two were located far underneath the actualy Vatican City ground level, completely and utterly secured from almost any assault from enemies. At least, that was what they thought they were, until the door flew open and a flock of crows rushed into the room, carrying the bodies of the dead guards and mutilated corpses of the common populace. A gasp arose from the people in the room, but Arthur barely noticed them. He was focused on the humanoid figure in the midst of the flock of crows. The figure's peircing blue eyes bore into his soul, and the talons that the figure possessed, along with the maniacal grin and the pointed teeth all caused the alarm bells in his head to go off faster than they ever had before. He glared at the monster, and, with a loud roar, unsheathed his blade and lunged. He was sure that he had managed to hit his opponent, and he grinned savagely, until he realised that he was being lifted off of the ground, held up by the talons that had speared themselves through his chest. He locked eyes with the Demon, who grinned a soul-shattering grin, and it finally gained a more suitable form. Arthur saw red as a talon scratched across his face, blinding him in the left eye. He was thrown mercilessly against the wall, causing stone to crumble down onto his body, and as his consciousness faded, one sentence repeated in his mind.

"My Master is rising, and his Children will soon join him".

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Current Day
12 O' Clock, Noon.
'Warriors of the Divine Light' Central Headquarters.
Vatican City, Rome.

A lone man sat in his Chair, his cold eyes surveying the area before him, watching as the man before him stood and left the room. His one good eye focused on the man as he left the room, and as the sound of the door closing heard him, he closed both of his eyes. A man appeared from the shadows beside him, and spoke into his ear.

"Sir, we have located all of the Children, we think it would be best for us to bring them here immediately".

The man in the Chair rubbed his brow, and spoke.

"Yes, but certain arrangements have been made. I will inform you of them later. For now, find the Children, and bring them to me".

Red Rain in Tokyo - A Dark Errand for a Darker Being (?)


The figure stood, the mask covering their face stained with the blood of the foes that had thought of resisting it's masters embrace. Although in actuality the being had no true master, it was simply playing along in order to get stronger, to gain more power and fulfill it's long awaited fantasy. The destruction of the world could wait for a few moments, for it had a job to do. The cafe in Tokyo was a haven for Youkai disguised as humans, and they had no idea just who was walking among them. The figure grinned behind it's mask as it walked inside, the patrons of the Cafe not caring due to the fact that many of them were dressed the same. The figure sat down at an already occupied table, and the man across from it shifted uncomfortably at the sight of the red staining his companion's mask.

"So, you're her new errand boy? Seems like it, with that blood".

"...."

"Not very talkative, are ya? Can I get ya something to drink?".

"...."

"Erm, what about a snack?".

"Your pathetic attempts to prevent the inevitable are amusing. Shall we simply bypass the formalities and do what I was sent here to do, or do you have valid reasoning as to why I shouldn't kill you right now, Mister Farrantino?".


The man shifted, sweat beginning to fall down his face as the intensity of the situation hit him. In front of him sat an anonymous figure, clouded in secrecy and mystery, but it's lethality was deadly obvious. Farrantino shifted again, and coughed. His hand shot out and grasped the cup of wine before him, and he pushed it to his lips while weighing his options. One option stood out the most, and he went with it. Placing the cup down on the table, he stood. His anxiety was struck when the masked figure didn't move to stop him, or even seem to notice. The dark miasma that surrounded it kept him on edge, and he felt like he needed to stop looking at the being's mask. Not even it's voice gave away a possible gender, somehow bordering between male and female and keeping everyone in the Cafe guessing. "If you'll excuse me, I have it in the Car outside. I'm sure you'd be able to give a man a short break from such an intense gaze, would you not?". The figure sat motionless for a few moments, and Farrantino stayed tense. It's head slid forward, nodding once, and Farrantino sighed in relief. He stared at the mask, and he felt something nagging at him on the inside, something telling him not to let his guard down at any time. He shook his head to clear his thoughts, and left the Cafe. He hurriedly opened the door to his car, and ordered his Driver to do his job. The man agreed, muttering something under his breath. The car took off, and Farrantino thought he was safe, having escaped the clutches of that devilish Ronove, and extending the time he had until he was forced to pay his debts.

A few minutes passed before the car was heading through the Industrial District, which happened to be a frquent meeting place for Farrantino and his associates. Being a foreigner in Tokyo had gotten him the attention of the Triads and Yakuza. His car slowed to a stop, and as he exited he was met by a circle of men, all in tuxedo's, but they were obviously Triad. Farrantino mopped his brow with a handkerchief, and sighed. "Okay boys, let's make this quick. I have someone on my tail, although they mustn't bee too brig-". He was cut off as one of the Triad's men dropped to the floor, his own shadow receding and vanishing into the mix of darkness that surrounded them. Farrantino grimaced, and looked around in shock, before noticing the figure approaching the group. The same masked person as before, although the mask seemed different somehow. Instead of the pattern it had before, a blazing sign appeared in it's place, and it seemed to be glowing brighter and brighter as they stood there. Suddenly, the figure extended a hand and a tendril of... 'something' reached out and grasped one of the Triads. The man struggled and screamed, but the tendril suddenly multiplied, and the new tendrils slammed into the man, running him through and pulling him apart with enough ferocity to send his organs and blood across the clearing and splatter onto other people. Farrantino yelped in horror, and leaped back into his car. He shouted for his driver to drive, but as he looked up he noticed that the man's head had been pulled open, and his brain had vanished. He grasped for his phone, and dialed for the police. Before anything could happen, he blurted out his location. As the words left his mouth, the screaming that had haunted him for the entirety of his time in the car stopped. With fear in his eyes he turned around, and he came face to face with 'it'. He whimpered and pushed himself back, unlocking the other door and falling to the ground. He got to his feet and wiped his brow again. Suddenly, something grasped him from behind and slammed him into the floor.

He looked at the figure beside him with dread, and the mask grew a mouth full of sharp teeth, and it laughed in his face. The voice from behind it, a mix of human and demons, spoke to him. "It's time to pay back your debts, Farrantino". With that, it lifted him up and placed it's hand on his chest, digging it's fingers in and tearing the flesh away. Blood oozed out, dripping onto the floor as Farrantino vomited on himself. The putrid vapors seemed to not affect the figure, however, and it simply reached into the hole in his chest and grasped something. Blood poured out of the wound, and the hand pulled backwards, dragging Farrantino's heart with it. He looked down to see the organ holding onto his arteries and veins as if for dear life, but with a final tug it came free. The life in Farrantino's eyes slowly drained like the blood from his body. and the Masked man stood over his corpse. The mask grinned as the figure pulled it away from it's face, and it's mouth opened wide to accommodate yet another heart to fill it's craving. The mask was put back into place, and it returned to it's normal form. "Hmm, that makes.... 23 Hearts~ Yummy yummy~ Hmm, maybe I'll leave a surprise for the Police when they get here, too?". With that, it left a simple card on the ground, and began it's dastardly work of presentation. Something that only the most twisted mind could even imagine. After it's work was done, and the sound of sirens reached it's ears, it vanished from sight as if it had never been there.

~~~~~


The Officer looked around the scene in disgust. 23 casualties, all dead with their Hearts and Brains missing. Something seemed off, but his thoughts were put on hold when he was called over to the final corpse. All of the bodies had been strung up by their intestines, with the rest of their organs scattered everywhere and their blood layed on the floor in a seemingly random places, although to a keen eye it was obvious it was a pentagram. The worst off was one Alberto Farrentino, a middle-aged man with ties to several underground organisations. It seemed like one of them had finally gotten fed up with his laziness and decided to 'sack him'. He was in the middle of the scene, his entrails cut out and his body sown back together. The killer hadn't bothered to allow the man to keep his dignity. His skin was torn off and used to bind his arms and legs together, and his mouth and eyes were sown shut. Blood was caked on him, as decoration for a psychopath. His intestines were wrapped around his neck, armpits and crotch, and his... 'you know what' was missing. The other victims were simply strung up by their intestines and wrapped in their own skin, but someone had definitely had it in for Farrantino. The man proceeded over to Farrantino's body, which people had only started to look for clues on or around. His subordinate turned to him and held out a card, and he took it. As he looked over it, a puzzled expression came over his face, and he eyed his subordinate who simply shrugged and continued his investigation.

Only one thing was on the card, a single Symbol;

Ω


The man walked away from the scene, when several screams were heard behind him. He whirled around to see all of the corpses explode with blood, which shot up into the air and spread across the sky, where it finally rained down upon them all and drenched them in itself. "Hmm, I would ring the WDL, but this is too odd. Maybe Kintaro could get a word in to a superior at the Renegades for me..... Eh?". The man sat down, and as he pulled his phone out of his pocket, he found that it was already ringing.

Dialing - Kintaro...

"Konbanwa, Shinjei Kintaro!"

The conversation soon turned serious, and Kintaro hung up the phone and ran straight down the Hallways, eventually finding the room where Scott and the others were. "Guys, there's an emergency in Tokyo!".

Embodiment of Evil - The Phoenix's Decision


"So you mean to tell me that you're going to hold me captive here until my friends decide to come and pick me up or you get tired of my company?".

"Indeed".

"Can I ask you something?".

"What is it?".

"Are you fucking retarded?".

"No".

"Suuure".


I sighed and rubbed the back of my neck as the girl stood before me, her eyes shining and betraying her intentions. Although I stand there, it is unwillingly that I do so. I'm being faced with a choice; Either I stay in that Mansion, living in the company of the very person whom I have been seeking vengeance against for hundreds of years; or she will transport me to the main Academy of the WDL. It makes me wonder exactly how this entire situation would've played out if I simply had gone with Gabriel. I briefly wondered how the others were doing, when a door behind me opened and Luna waltzed in, a smile on her face and a package in her hands. She whispered to the woman in front of me, and said woman took the box and opened it. I decided to take a step backwards but it seemed like I didn't exactly need to. The blue-haired woman,, who I now knew as Remilia, had finished tearing the box open and had produced a mask. It's very surface gave off a malicious vibe, something that caused the madness at the edge of my mind to begin to react and rile out of control. I shifted uncomfortably before Remilia put the mask away, and the Butler, Ronove, appeared and then vanished with it. I cracked my neck to alleviate some pressure, wondering just what would be happening next. Something grasped my wrist and pulled me away, and I turned to see Luna pulling me towards a door to the side of the Lobby. It opened by itself when she came near, but it didn't have any mechanisms to open it. "Must be a hidden one somewhere. Maybe a Magical Door?".

I looked around again, having adjusted to the eerily dim lighting of this new area of the... what was this place, anyway? Was it a Castle or a Mansion, or maybe a pocket dimension that Remilia had created for herself, if that was even her real name. Either way, the rabbit that was persistently dragging me down the corridors was gaining speed, and she was pretty darn fast for a non-Tengu. As we dashed down the corridors and hallways, the dim lighting began to get to me and I couldn't help but feel nausea and disoreintation. As the journey took longer, I felt my head begin to spin more and more, faster and faster. Eventually we stopped outside a door, and I took a look at the sign that was embedded into the wall beside it. "Executioner.. Heh, haven't used that moniker for a bit.... Gah, my head's killing me!". I watched as Luna opened the door for me, and as I stepped inside my legs simply dropped from below me. Luna caught me as I fell, and she pulled my arm over her shoulder to give me some support. I decided to use this to my advantage. If Remilia and Angel could be crafty and sneaky, so could I. I gasped in feigned pain, and Luna quickly took me over to the bed, which she sat me down on. "Do you need some medicine? Maybe some cold water will help you. I'll be right back, okay?". Luna stood, quickly turning away and leaving the door. I lay there, pretending to be in agony for a few moments more before I was assured she wasn't just hiding around the corner, which was when I flung myself out of the bed and poked my head out into the hallway. The red walls were carved with intricate patterns, and it gave off a very... odd feel. I made sure the Lunar Rabbit wasn't anywhere nearby, and I stepped outside. There was a window at the end of the corridor, and I approached it. Looking outside, I could see an endless plain, full of different types of plants and flowers. A feeling of peacefulness and antiquity came over me, and I knew that if I was ever swallowed by the madness, that would be the place to go for me.

I decided then and there that I might as well go take a look at the Garden before Luna got back and attacked me or whatever, but I felt kind of bad for ditching her like this. I mean, she's a servant of the bitch who chained my up for 500 years straight, but she doesn't seem all that... 'evil'. Something behind me caused me to whirl around, and I saw something at the end of the hallway that filled me with dread. A black, dripping maisma was flowing towards me, but not like it was before. Instead of slowly slithering across the floor, walls and ceiling menacingly, it came at me with surprising speed, and I could already feel it's influence hitting me, and the roof was already dripping with black ooze. I turned, yanking my feet free from the amount of liquid piling up near them and trying to cover them. allowing myself one last look at the goo, my heart sank and I leaped out of the way just in time to avoid a slimy, black tendril aimed for my chest. I scrambled to my feet, fear giving them wings as I propelled down the Hallways, but the Madness never gave up and never gave in. The longer I ran, the closer it got and I couldn't run forever. Don't get me wrong, I can run for a loooong time at really high speeds. I mean, I can move at Tengu speeds most of the time, which usually near breaking the sound barrier, but I just felt so cramped and off that I knew that if I used my full speed, I'd probably smack into a wall or trip, and it'd all be over. No use wasting my strength until I had absolutely no hope, was there? I hit the end of the hallway, pushing off of the wall and using the momentum to ush myself harder to get to my goal. I knew that there were doors opening behind me, and things were lookin out, viewing me and studying me. I had this odd sense of deja vu as I ran, and then it happened.

A dead end, with only a window to stop my 'wallbreaker' tactics. I turned behind me to see the writhing mass slow to a stop, but it didn't need to move in any case. I was trapped. Now don't get me wrong, the things I did next was just a spontaneous thing. I figured that physical pain was better than mental and psychological anguish, so I did the only thing my half-conscious mind could think of. "Fuck off!".

Then I threw myself out of the window.

Then I hit the ground with a crack.

Then the Madness receeded, because I'd made it to where I'd wanted to be. In that Garden, the Madness couldn't touch me. In that Garden, I was at peace. I felt at home, like when I was younger and I'd go and hide in my treehouse.

Then I fell unconscious, and the nightmares began.

Then the Madness resurfaced, and began to feast.

Oh come now, Deon, you've got nothing to lose by giving in to me, you know that!

Doesn't mean I'm going to, though.

Oh, you want to, I know it!


The darkness was swept aside like the curtain on a play, andthe room beyond shined in front of me. It had always been there, the final place where I could keep up my final defences. It was a small room, a couch in the middle with an official looking chair beside it, as if a Psychiatrist would sit there. Deon opened his eyes and found himself laying on the couch, a guitar on his lap. He'd always liked Guitars above all other instruments, acoustic and electric, and had always longed to learn to play one. He was 15 when he first picked one up, and his skills had only grown in time. He idolized Slash, and wanted to at least be on his level, although this seemed like a far-fetched dream now instead of a reality. Deon looked around for the form to appear, and seeing that it wasn't, he began to play. Slowly at first, but eventually the guitar picked up on his emotions, and the notes and chords began to flow easier. Slowly, a blackened mass began to form on the chair, and eventually it was solid enough to be acknowledged as semi-human. Deon looked at it with distaste, and continued to play. Alternately, Deon could play many instruments with much skill, due to his long lifespan and ability to take in new things easily. Deon continued to play, although the mass had begun to reach out to him and stroke him. He ignored it, but it's attempts at getting his attention were growing stronger as it's hands reached out and wrapped themselves around him. The mass was still forming itself, but it's form had begun to change into that of a woman. Preying on weaknesses and fears was why Madness drove people, well, mad. The hands slowly moved up and down his chest, intent on forcing him to submit and give them his attention, but Deon simply remained focused on the guitar, playing a song that he was taught while still a child.

Deon sighed in relief as the arms let go of him, and the girl stood up, her tuxedo shining brightly in the artificial light of the room. Suddenly, the floor of the room began to... change. The red-black tiling changed into grass, and the roof vanished and the brightness of the sun shined into the room, and the walls peeled away to reveal a luscious grassy scene full of life and beauty, a stark contrast to the closed in darkness of the room. Deon looked around in awe, and instead of the anthropomorphic form of the Madness in front of him, there stood a beautiful woman. Deon couldn't make her out, but he felt himself drawn towards her. as soon as their hands touched, he felt himself catapulted out of the dreamworld and back into reality. His eyes opened, and they locked with the eyes of the woman he'd just met in his dreams. Deon licked his lips and swallowed to wet his throat. His blinked a few times, and spoke.

"Am I like, dead or something?".

"No, you're just a bit stupid from smacking your head so hard, handsome".

"Nice sense of humour".

"Nice abs".

"Yep. I'm definitely dead".

"And stupid, too".

"Oh shush, Miss....".

"Aurora".

"Aurora".


~~~~~


A few hours had passed before Deon had fully recouperated, but he'd busied himself by helping out with the garden. Aurora had been kind enough to let him use her shower, and his hair was still damp and wet from it, laying down across his face. He turned and grinned at the woman who sat under the shade of a parasol, sipping tea and smiling at him. "You're a good Gardener, you know". Deon laughed as he pulled a weed from it's place. "Well, I've have a looong time to get better at it, haha~". The happiness in his voice was because of two things. One; He was socialising with someone he'd never met before, and they didn't think badly of him, and two; The Madness had receeded, and he was content with that. He looked up at the sun, and spoke. "What time is it, Miss Aurora?". Aurora pulled a pocketwatch out of her pocket and looked it over, a smile on her face. "It's almost midnight". As Deon turned to face her, she giggled at the expression of shock on his face. "They call this the 'Garden of the Sun' for a reason, you know". Deon chuckled and returned to his work, and eventually Miss Aurora joined him. At her touch, the weeds came away easily, and the plants stood upright and reached for the sun, getting stronger and stronger as she stroked them lovingly.

They worked on on the Garden for quite a while, and eventually they were both worn out and laying under the parasol Aurora used for shade to rest under. Deon sighed and watched the clouds in the sky, and Aurora spoke. "So, what shall you be doing in the outside world when you return. Presumably soon, am I right?". Deon nodded, and sighed. "Yeah, as much as I love this place I gotta get back. In fact, I might as well get it over and done with now, shouldn't I?". Deon sat up, and grinned. Aurora sighed, and poked Deon on the arm. He turned and eyed her, and she smirked. "Any requests of me, since your expedition is most likely doomed?". Deon's expression turned serious. "Well, I might need your help with one thing...". Aurora grinned, and nodded. "Well....".

~~~~~


Deon's Return - Isn't Something.. 'off'?


The inside of the Renegades Base was cool because of the air-conditioning, and Deon grinned as he stepped through yet another portal-thing with Eclipse in hand. He turned down the corridor, and those who saw him gasped in awe or shock. He knew where everyone was, in the Courtroom. Outside the door were two Guards, but they gave him no trouble as he booted the door down and grinned. "Sup guys!".

"A Power had perished. She seemed to have awakened a new power." Raziel reported while looking at Jahoel who was sitting calmly on his throne with eyes closed. "We should handle this ourselves." The moment Raziel stated that Jahoel's midnight black eyes were seen once more. It had a piercing look that made Raziel visibly flinched. "An order is an order, my friend. There is nothing to be done about it." Upon hearing those words, Raziel looked away as he clenched his hands into tight fists. He was clearly disturbed by the turn of events and even more the rather uncaring view of Jahoel about this matter. "One of our own died. Galadriel died! And you don't even care at the very least." A sigh was the first answer that Jahoel had for Raziel's opinion about his standings and lack of emotions. "All things will come to an end at some point. Are you saying that Galadriel's death was not honorable? She had died doing her mission proudly." Raziel's golden eyes lit with flames of unspecified emotions as he immediately punched the headrest of Jahoel's throne which crumbled easily. He had barely missed the Jahoel's head in the process. "It could have been avoided and no one would need to die but that wretched child!" Jahoel met those burning golden eyes with his rather cold and enigmatic black ones. There was silence between them and it was full of pent-up tension. "Remember who you served Raziel. It is not ourselves." Jahoel stood from his throne and walked passed Raziel. "The orders have not changed. We will remain here as God had intended. Disobedience in any form will be considered treason. Remember that well."

After saying that, Jahoel was no where in sight and even his presence had vanished into nothingness. Raziel gritted his teeth on anger and irritation. He knew that Jahoel's words were absolutely correct. However, he cannot just more of the angels die for such a child that should have not exist from the very beginning. Removing his hand from the crumbled headrest, he lowered his head as it effectively covered his eyes from anyone's prying. "Because of your stupidity... Your weakness... This what happened. Are you happy now?" He muttered with much rage and disappointment. Lifting his head, he looked at one particular throne that had been vacant for a long time. "You are just good with being selfish. You are a selfish being." After saying that, he averted his eyes from the said throne and proceeded to leave the area as well. He should check with the Dominions and Powers of their next moves as God had yet to retract the order. But before he could, Raziel came face-to-face with Cochabiel. "You must have heard already, what happened on the mortal realm." Cochabiel closed his eyes and walked passed Raziel not confirming anything. "Among the three of us, you are the one oozing with such great intent to kill. You must feel so restless." Cochabiel noticed the destroyed throne of Jahoel's and answered. "Do not involve me in your childish frustrations." Raziel quickly turned around to face him with annoyance clearly shown on his face. "What did you say!?"

Cochabiel finally looked at Raziel with those silver-blue eyes that were vacant like those of a corpse. "She will die by my hands." His statement reverberated within the area with such strength of resolve and determination slightly flaring behind those silver-blue eyes. "Whatever you say." Raziel answered as he turned towards the exit once more and left the vicinity. As for Cochabiel, he took his seat on the throne made for him. He wanted to take a few minutes of rest from his duties. Closing his eyes, the faint scent of spring was noticed by him. It reminded him of a specific person that made the Heavens turned upside down with just a few of words. "She killed quite the amount of people. The child you wanted to protect so much is becoming of her true nature." Leaning on his chair, his eyes opened and looked at the clear blue skies above. "Will it be truly worth it when I crush her?" He softly muttered and felt a light caress upon his cheek. "You should have chosen me... You should have..." It was then he felt a cold presence embracing him in some manner. He allowed it knowing who it could probably be. "Thank you, Cochabiel... Thank you." It was whisper that seemed to float in air. Then, the presence vanished for anyone to notice or to feel. "It was not the words I wanted to hear." He answered with his tone brandishing the subtlety of sorrow while his eyes seemed to be glow with light disappointment. "It was not what I want..."

"Once upon a time, there was this princess who were best of friends with two princes from two different kingdoms. The first prince was known as the Good Prince as he is kind, charismatic, gentle, and understanding. While the other prince is known as the Bad Prince. It is because he is brash, haughty, and had a bad mouth to begin with."

"But one day, the princess was caught by an enemy who imprisoned her in a dark tower. When the two princes heard of this, they quickly rushed to save the princess. But along the journey, the Evil prince did everything he could to stop the Good Prince. For the Evil Prince knew how much the princess loved the Good Prince and he wanted to be the one to have that love."

It was at that moment eyes of pink were slowly revealed. The light coming from the bulbs irate Keilani's eyes for a brief moment as she closed her eyes once more. She was not sure why the story that her mother would often tell her when she was a child was suddenly a dream of hers. However, she had other matters to worry about. Opening her eyes, she assessed the familiar setting of the infirmary that she was in before. Somehow, she had managed to return her. Recalling the events, her eyes widened with worry as she quickly made herself stand from her bed. However, she was only successful to make herself a shot of pain throughout her body and feel how heavy her body felt at the moment. "Ah!" Instantly, she landed back on her bed as she exhaled deeply. Even with the best intention of her scream was just a mere whisper, she was much more weaker than she had originally thought at the moment. "I must know... if Blanche is okay..." She said in almost a whisper without even trying to do so. It was then she felt a eyes looking at her. Looking at the direction where she sensed it, her eyes widened with surprise this time around. It was a familiar face and somehow it soothed her in a way. "Ash... You're safe. I am so happy..." She said with much happiness as her eyes were beginning to glisten with tears.

"Because you existed, she died."

Those words haunted Keilani again as she looked away. "May I ask you something?" She murmured audibly. "Do you remember Blanche? Is she fine?" Her eyes returned to Ash's figure as her those eyes of rose pink were filled with hope and concern. They were almost desperate in a sense. "I cannot remember what happened when that woman tried to kill Blanche..." She whispered to herself as her memories were all muddled. It was probably due to the current condition or it was the natural reaction of the brain to protect its owner from traumatic experiences. In any case, she has no recollections of the deaths she had caused while she was on a rampage. Unbeknown to her, she was going to put into a trial for the crimes she had committed. At the same time, she had no idea that another piece from a distant past and a possible connection to her future was arriving at the Renegade Headquarters. The question will it be pleasantly and wreck havoc especially when everyone had just managed to get a semblance of peace.

"I wanted you to depend on me even just for a bit..."

Gruesome. Horrifying. Grotesque. The words could go on forever; however, they would not be enough to fully describe the scene unwittingly discovered by a 7-year old boy or the police that came to investigate the reports. It goes without saying that this scene would be haunting everyone's memories for the longest time. "Whoever did this is twisted." The chief investigator commented while looking at the pictures of the crime scene that were taken before the clean-up crew arrived. "Do we know the victim?" The investigator asked while glancing at his partner. "Vince Garown. Age 17. High School Student at Steinfeld Academy just a few blocks from here. His parents are currently overseas but we have informed them and would be arriving tomorrow." His partner flipped through the pages of the small notebook in hand. "I asked around and no one had seen anything suspicious." A remorseful sigh escaped from the chief investigator's lips. "We should probably get more information at his school then." His partner nodded in agreement as he put away the small notebook into his chest pocket. "You know there had been a lot of killings going around these days..." The investigator nodded and looked at the antenna of a certain roof. "Yeah. Earlier, it was this murdered female college student, a couple, and now this... They get younger each time." Another sigh released but this time it was with disappointment and irritation. "The suspect could it be the same?" His partner noted while looking at the pictures laid on the hood of the car.

The pictures showed the untouched scene that a 7-year-old boy had found who was probably scarred because of this. A skinless human body was skewered into the antenna of the boy's home located at the roof. Blood dripped like rain from that position and some of the innards were coming out due to the incessant pecking. Yes, pecking. The crows were already having a grand time of feeding on such a delectable carcass along with the scent of death filtering the air. As for the skin, it was located at a nearby elementary school. It was raised as a flag for all to see. A lot of the parents were horrified at this knowledge and their children were scared and traumatized by it. The authorities quickly took it down. There was no need for anyone to say that this crime was done on purpose and the criminal wanted it to be known. It was like taunt, a challenge, or an invitation. But, to whom? The police or someone else entirely. Needless to say, whoever did this was a complete psychopath, a madman. "There is that chance. The perp does not care being seen or his work publicized." The main investigator answered while lighting a cigarette to calm his nerves. "I'll make the bastard who did pay." After stating that, the chief investigator crushed the empty pack of cigarettes in his hand.

"Let's go then. We got to gather intel, right?" His partner reminded while opening the passenger door of their car. "We can't waste any time." The chief investigator puffed a smoke and had a smirk on his face. "Of course." But before he could enter the driver seat, one of the policemen ran towards him. "Wait! Sir!" The two men looked at the one running and then stopped before them in a very exhausted manner despite being younger than the two. He seemed to have run for some time probably searching for them among the crowd. "What is it?" The chief investigator asked as the younger man who immediately straightened himself and handed him something. "It was found near the crime scene. We suspected it to be at the body judging by the blood. It might fallen from the crows." The chief investigator took it and despite the blood caked on it. The object was certainly a Polaroid picture. His partner looked at him curiously. "What is it?" Upon hearing that question, the picture was handed to him. "This is the victim and a girl?" The chief investigator narrowed his eyes. "Look at the back." His partner did as he was instructed and there were written words as he read it. "Mireya, I'm so sorry..." The investigator finished his cigarette and threw it to the ground as he crushed at the sole of his shoe. "We got a name."



"You'll live long, kit?"
"More than you will."

Blood red eyes peeked hungrily behind the orange glasses as it gazed at the infamous headquarters of the Renegades. Drakul had finally arrived and he could smell the fear, anxiety, anger, depression, and blood. However, it seemed that he was a bit late for the festivities. Now, all he could see were soldiers patrolling the vicinity and most of them were from the WDL if he was not mistaken which he is sure he is not. There was restlessness in the air. He could almost taste in deliciously. But more importantly, he could smell the lovely scent of the forbidden child. It gently tickles his senses. "I can't wait to devour my sweet." But before he could disappear in his spot, there was another scent that lingered and it was lot more close to him than he desired. "If it isn't the kit." From the dark shades of the trees, golden eyes peered and soon it revealed Devant who approached Drakul and stopped within an acceptable distance. "If it isn't the old man." He countered back. "What brings you out this time around?" His question hanged in the air for a few minutes before it was answered. "Food. It has always been that." Drakul answered with a brilliant smile on his face. "What about you? Last time, I heard you don't like getting involved." It was spoken with a tone of interest and sexual innuendo but to what isn't very clear.

"You become more idiotic the last time I saw you." Devant retorted and ignored the sexual tone that Drakul had used. "If you are going in, I will stop you." His eyes of gold flashed with serious intent as it narrowed even his body posture suggested how serious the kitsune was in his words. "It's good to see that the boogers you have as kit are already gone." Drakul smirked at this as he faced Devant fully. "I am wondering how you would stop me. In that form against me, you are an insect. No, a dust." He walked towards Devant and stopped until there was only a few centimeters between them. "Who is your master? The Renegades or WDL? How low have you fallen oh, so noble Devant?" Closing the gap between them, Devant grabbed hold of Drakul's collar and his eyes of gold that even Alvanzo has a hard time of having it show any sign of emotion was now burning with annoyance. "I am not a pet of those low-life humans." Drakul grabbed hold of Devant's hands and pried them away from his collar. "Then what are you? Despite you're grown-up appearance, you are still just a kit." Devant backed away from Drakul and calmed himself. It had been quite a long time since he had allowed his emotions show so freely. "Do you really want to cause all that chaos for your food?"

Drakul smirked and then turned around to face once more the Renegades' Headquarters. "I simply do what I want. Who or what gets involve is no of consequence to me." Straightening his attire, he looked over his shoulders. "A little exercise won't be bad as well. I do need to stretch my bones." Devant released a sigh as he closed his eyes. "The children are there. They are the Devil's possessions. More importantly, one of them is very important to me and my goals at the moment." Opening his eyes again, he pointed his index finger at Drakul. "I could careless about the humans. For now, I can't allow you to do as you please." At the end of Devant's statement, Drakul released a very hearty chuckle. He was even grabbing his stomach to control himself from the mirth. "What are you laughing at?" Devant asked with his eyes narrowed angrily. "You." Drakul answered while looking at the silver-haired kitsune. "It was a good decision for me to save your life back then. Ain't it kit?" Devant remained silent while still pointing his index finger at Drakul. "The Devil you say? The boy has still a lot to learn. A brat will always be a brat, I see..." With that said, Drakul had regained his composure and cracked his neck in the process. "I''ll listen to you once. The child you want. I'll let you have it. But the one named Keilani is mine alone. Comprende?"

Devant lowered his raised hand. He knew very well that Drakul was letting him go easily. The truth remains in his current restricted form, he was at a huge disadvantage. He was not even sure if he could compete fairly even if he is in his true form. "Fine. It's a deal." Drakul had a cocky smile on his face and looked at Devant before returning his attention the headquarters below. "Shall we take a look inside?" After saying that, Drakul placed his right hand in front of his lips and removed the white gloves by biting it. "Something interesting is abound to happen." He noted and when his hand was free from the glove, he bit the tip of his index finger and let the blood trickle down to the ground. "As long as you don't make a mess. I don't care." Devant said returning to his normal and cold, calm self. The blood that dripped to the ground began to form into spider-like creature. It's body appeared to be tar and even having its color instead of crimson. Drakul covered his hand again with his gloves as the spider-creature scurried off to take surveillance inside. "You should be more sociable kit. Ladies won't like you." Devant huffed at the commentary as he turned his back at Drakul and decided to leave. "Just behave." Devant disappeared into the trees beyond. As for Drakul, his lips displayed a toothed grin showing his pearly white teeth and fangs. "The same could be said about you." Turning his back at the headquarters, he had decided to leave as well but not before glancing at the place where the forbidden child was. "The desire grows fonder with separation they say... Until, I taste you my sweet." Then, Drakul walked away as tendrils of shadow circled around him and he was gone without a trace.

~ Saulkur's Appearance! ~

"My Lady Elegia, welcome back." It was one of the servants that had been waiting for Elegia's return. The Archduchess gazed at the male demon with curiosity as she had noticed his rather nervous gait. "Yes, I have although; it has not been that long." She greeted back while walking passed him as she was headed to her throne room. The said servant immediately followed her as he maintained a respectable distance between the two of them. "I'm happy about your arrival... But, you see..." She did not bother to look at the servant and stopped immediately before her throne room with a raised eyebrow. "I have a guest." The male servant nodded fervently while rubbing his hands in nervousness. Noticing this, she released a sigh and raised her right hand waving it for him to leave now. Following this the servant hurriedly bowed and left the place without a second look. As for the Archduchess, the large doors leading to her throne opened before her as she greeted her guest with a smile. "My, my, my, have you not traveled too far from your father's side?" She asked. "My father's castle is fine..." He stated, walking inside as his blue robes flowed about around him, his body looking human for the most part as what stood out was his light blue hair. He rose a brow as he looked at her. "I imagine you know what I am here then, Lady Elegia?" Crystal blue eyes glowed with an unspecified glint as Elegia walked ahead of the man and went straight to her throne before speaking.

"I'm glad to hear you father is doing fine." After saying that, she took her seat and looked at him in coy manner. "Perhaps. After all, it is just your imagination." She said with a smile on her face while her words were tinted with sarcastic humor. The son of Rhanksar rolled his eyes as he walked forward and stopped before her at this. "Right... So am I meant to get on one knee or sit beside you or what?" He asked with a seemingly casual tone, trying not to get wrapped up in her humor right now. Elegia released a small sigh and closed her eyes. "Take your seat, please." With that said, a stone chair came out of the ground directly opposite of hers. "Aren't you quite serious?" She noted as she leaned on her throne and crossed her legs in the process. "So, let's not waste time. What is it that you want exactly?" The son of Rhanksar took his seat as he looked at her with a risen brow. "I can't tell if you are trying to flirt or just want my attention... Either way - I’m not quite happy at the moment... It's why I'm here. It's about my little brother." He admitted to her. "You will know if I'm flirting and certainly I will let you know if I want you..." Elegia answered in a matter-of-fact tone accompanied by a smile. "So, it is about your brother." She spoke coyly while narrowing her eyes at him. "Are the instincts of being an older sibling tingling within you, hmm?" It was wrapped with subtle suspicion but more with humor than anything else. One would wonder if she was being serious but it was also a fact that the Archduchess had always been a serious person with just a carefree demeanor. "What can I do to ease your unhappiness?"

The son of Rhanksar shrugged his shoulders. "Well.... There is one thing." He said as he looked up at her. "... He's in love with a bitch. Another child who goes by the name of Ash Clade... I hate her for it. She doesn't even give a damn for god's sakes - pushing him aside like some toy. It bothers me... A lot. But there's nothing I can do about it - if I come in, it would ruin everything." Placing her elbow on the armrest of her throne, Elegia casually placed her chin on top of her hand and looked at him with interest. "So, he has entered puberty. How delightful." Closing her eyes momentarily, she waved her free hand to the sides. "I cannot intervene directly, yet." She said with slight disappointment and continued on. "However, there are other two children as the newest recruits. They are both females. As a matter of fact, I have a little birdie that told me that one of the females saved your little brother." Looking at him, there was a glint of auspicious meaning in those blue eyes of hers. "Emotions are so fickle. You will never know. But, what exactly do you want me to do?" The son of Rhanksar shrugged his shoulders at this. "... I wanted to know where you stood with Rhanksar and the Council of Hell currently - in case anything were to happen or turn up.." He said as he shrugged his shoulders lightly. "... I also need to know how the King's progress is going so far with his army." A smile was again present in her lips as Elegia listened to his words.

"You want to know my allegiance... I see..." She paused momentarily as she looked at the nails of her free hand. "As long as Rhanksar stands beside the Lord Devil. I will be his ally and as for the council, it is the same." Then, she shifted her attention to him once more. "As for the Master's army, he strengthens them even more. The borders of the inner sanctum are well protected. The Rebels will have a hard time penetrating it. As you can see, he is not much concerned. I am not sure whether that is confidence or simply something else." After saying that, she removed her chin from the top of her hand and her eyes narrowed to a certain degree. "But, what do you really want to discuss with me, son of Rhanksar?" The son of Rhanksar looked at her and sighed. "... It's Saulkur. And it's... Well... Nevermind." He said as he went to stand up at this. Saulkur's actions made Elegia sigh once more. He was the other person than the Master Paimon who had made her sigh more than once. "Do you not like me calling you by that title?" She asked nonchalantly before looking at him with curiosity. "So, you're not going to tell me your real intentions?" Running her fingers through her long black hair, she looked at him in a sideway manner. "I can be overbearing when I am oh so curious. You do know that don't you?" Saulkur stopped as he looked down at her and sighed. "... I'd.... Like.... A job." He tilted his head down at this, if there were an anime sweatdrop, one would be present right now. There was a moment of silence. It was like a ton of cold ice dropped on a desert. Time seemed to pass by ever so slowly and it was only interrupted with a delightful chuckle from Elegia. It had rather melodic tone to it as it echoed within the large throne room. She did mind her manners in front of Saulkur as she continued to show her mirth. "You--- Hahahaha!" Her words become incoherent but soon enough, she was able to settle herself. Taking a deep breath, she could tell that he must be annoyed at her reaction.

But, no one in their right mind would not laugh. "You never ceased to make me laugh. In any case, did you not ask Rhanksar, himself about this?" She coughed in between trying to control her bubbling laughter. "I'm just curious as you are his eldest son." Saulkur kneeled down in front of her and placed his hand on her shoulder. "... I meant in the human world." If it was possible to have Elegia's vein's popping on her forehead, it would have been done. "You should have completed your sentence." Glaring at Saulkur, she released another sigh. "Another reason, I don't get bored with you." Looking at the hand on her shoulder, she continued on. "Like I said, did you not ask your father?" This time she looked at Saulkur. "Although, I have an idea I could use you for." Saulkur sighed. "Father said it would be unjust for him to have any fake human businesses. It'd be a big demonic factory..." He shivered a bit at this and lowered his hand down to her hand. "... I just.... Need a cover for the human world, t-that's all..." He kept his best to look down at this. "...." Elegia listened to his words quite intently and had the idea that would what Rhanksar will tell his son. Looking at Saulkur's hand on hers, she then looked at him. "All right. I will give you a cover." She said with a very serious tone. The humor that was always present in her words had completely vanished. "I do have a reputation to uphold as an Archduchess and Liege to Master Paimon now."

Saulkur looked at the ground at this. "....And in return, I must do -- what?" He asked. Retrieving her hand from Saulkur's, Elegia looked at him intently before speaking. "Just watch. No matter what happens or even when your brother gets involved with my people at the human world. You must do absolutely nothing." She spoke every word with intent and seriousness. "I am certain he won't die that easily. He is your brother and even more Rhanksar's son." Saulkur sighed out and stood up slowly. "... Anything else you would like to tell me then?" He asked, not sure whether to stay or go at this point. Elegia tilted her head to side and had a thoughtful look. Her serious presence instantly dissipated. "One more thing. I always liked the starwberry frappe at the human world. Bring me some, it would be awhile before I return then. I do have my territory to handle at the moment and there is also the report... So, be a dear." She said with a very sweet smile. Saulkur felt one of his eyes twitch at this. "W-what do you take me for, a mate or a slave or... Some kind of s-servant?" He said as he closed his eyes then and sighed. ".... Oh god, it's going to be like this, isn't it?" A bright smile was on Elegia's face as if to confirm Saulkur's conclusion. "It is all of the above." Clapping her hands together, she gave him a wink. "Now, do hurry. I am quite parched, unless, you will kiss me to satisfy me for now." She said with a smirk on her lips with her eyes of blue glimmering with sarcastic humor.

Saulkur felt his brows raise at this. ".... Y-you can't be cornering me like this! If I do that, I'll.... Oh dear what, you are cruel, so cruel!" He said as he shook and looked around. ".... Those two are all I have?!? Are you mad?!?! Are you really really serious about this?!?! You devil woman.... Uggghhhhh..... Tell me it's your hand, tell me it's your hand please tell me!" Elegia cannot help but smile at the flustered Saulkur. She had always enjoyed teasing him when she has the chance. "Of course, a kiss should be proper here." She tapped her index finger on her lips playfully and then pointed at the door to the throne room. "Or you could just grab my strawberry frappe. They are two easy choices, really." Although, she had the idea what choice he would take. Saulkur blinked as he walked to her and knelt in front of you. ".... You really are crazy... You would send me on a fool's errand to earth without knowing my way around it?!?!" He told her. "It's not a fool's errand. I'll give you directions." Elegia handed Saulkur a piece of paper along with the intricate details of how to blend her strawberry frappe. "See, how considerate, I am." She said with much pride and a smile. Saulkur looked at it as he sweatdropped and looked back at her. ".... You know what? I'll take my chances." He told her. "Really? Then go and do it now. We don't have all day." Elegia said with slight impatience present in her tone. She waved her hand forward as a gesture for him to do what he had decided to do. Saulkur sighed. ".... If you are so impatient to wait..." He said, before reaching his hands up to grab her arms, making it look like he was using her as a means to get up. But instead, he quickly leaned in and .... She felt the rest.

Elegia watched him as he saw her fit to be used as a stand of sort. He really does have the nerve as she released a sigh. It was at that moment he made his choice. Her eyes widened a fraction showing her surprise. Saulkur slowly pulled away as he fully stood up then and looked down at her. "..... Well? Did you need five more seconds or was that enough to satisfy you?" He asked. "Just 50%... Don't be too cocky." Elegia had finally regained her former composure. "That will do for now. Now, go... I'll just inform Devant and Alvanzo about your arrival." After saying that, she looked away from him as a sign that she had ended their conversation. Saulkur huffed at this and turned around so his back was facing her, before vanishing in a bright blue light. When Elegia was certain he was gone, she immediately covered her face as it was beet reed. Despite her flirtatious way, she actually had never been kissed by anyone before and she would rather die many painful deaths than to admit that to him.

~ Sebastian and Mireya meet! ~

Sebastian felt his eyes slowly open as he forced himself to sit up on his bed. He flinched a bit, falling back down as he felt the pain from his wounds come into effect before he was able to get a good grip on the bed with his hands. He was struggling at this point, having to breath faster as well from this. He closed his right eye as the pain went through his body, and he tried to sit up again. "When you awake, you will get hurt again..." With those words, Mireya's eyes slowly opened. The light on the ceiling welcomed her. As her blurry vision returns to normal, the dream that she had faded into the deeper recesses of her mind. It was once more a forgotten memory. She moved her head to side and felt how limp her body was. There was no pain but she felt a bit lousy. It was then she caught sight of the boy she had saved earlier. "Don't move..." Sebastian stopped as he looked over towards her, his eyes watching her as he rose a brow at her. He found her purple hair rather unique and he found it to be quite -- different... I mean, he's seen two people with pink hair, brown hair, blonde hair, gray hair -- but purple?!? That got the job! He laid down on his back slowly as he looked over at her. ".... Who are you? I'm Sebastian... Sebastian Thomas." He admitted to her, feeling like utter crap at the moment - it was shown and heard! Mireya could identify that he was not feeling the best at the moment. She offered a weak yet small smile. She wanted to lightly chuckle but that was out of the question. Her battery is still empty to say the least. "Mireya Nightless... I helped you recover I think... So, don't move too much.."

Sebastian smiled slightly as he chuckled a little. "Really? I didn't even notice... But thanks. I would of died if you hadn't turn up." He said to her as he closed his eyes for a moment, taking in deep breaths as he relaxed himself before re-opening them. "... So uh, what does this mean? Do I owe you something now in return or are you just going to accept a hug?" Mireya closed her eyes and answered. "You're welcome..." She opened her eyes and then glanced at him. "I don't think so. Just don't push yourself. I don't want my effort saving you wasted now." After saying that, she tried to sit up but was unable to do so. "Still little tired..." Sebastian pushed his arms down on to the bed as he forced himself up at this. ".... Really? You are tired? I got stabbed through the chest all at once by five different things..." He sighed out at this. ".... I don't want to tell anyone this, but I'm hating how everything's getting so.... Dark suddenly." Mireya looked at him. "I noticed that you were like a dart board earlier..." Her eyes remained on him and understood what he meant. "There are just those days... All one can do not to be swallowed by it is to smile..." She said while ending her words with a smile. "Although, it may be ridiculous." Sebastian rose his eyebrows at her at this. "... How can you just sit there and still smile after all that's happened? Or what's to come?"

Mireya looked at the ceiling and then answered him. "If I don't, I might just break and right now, it won't do anyone good if I do especially myself." She closed her eyes and continued on. "I have to be able to move... So, I can help others from the darkness." Sebastian frowned at this as he heard her words. ".... Oh.... I.... I see. I wish I could follow that advice sometimes...." He admitted to her. Upon hearing this, Mireya let out a light chuckle and then spoke afterwards. "You'll be fine. You don't need to do things my way or or the way of others." Opening her eyes, she looked at him. "Just be yourself. It will work out. I do that and I'm still here." Sebastian nodded silently as he looked over at her and rose a brow. "... So... How old are you exactly? And why are you here?" He asked with a bit of caution, knowing he might be tredding on dangerous grounds. "17..." Mireya answered nonchalantly. "I believe I'm supposed to be one of the Devil's children or something. I didn't get much information about that for my liking..." Raising her hand, she looked at it remembering what she able to do earlier with Sebastian's injuries. "Are you also like me?" Sebastian rubbed the back of his head at this. "I am." He confirmed. "....15 years of age, can you believe it? Youngest of the group and yet all I can do is just... Run around and get injured."

Mireya looked at him with a small smile. "You saved someone, didn't you? I don't think that you just run and got injured." Lowering her hand, she looked at the ceiling again. "Being youngest doesn't mean you can do everything. But at the very least, you can learn more than others." Sebastian shrugged his shoulders at this. "... So uh.... Anything you want to do while we're here?" Mireya had a thoughtful look on her face. "I probably want to take a walk around." With that said, she took a deep breath and pulled herself up to sit which she did finally. Her purple hair fall around her like messy silk curtains. "But, we are not probably allowed to do so..." Releasing a sigh, she looked at him. "What do you want to?" Sebastian tilted his head at this. "...Can I.. Join you?" Mireya reached out her hand to him to take with a bright smile. "Sure. I could use a companion." Sebastian smiled and reached out for it, but instead fell on the floor with a loud yelp as he landed on it. He then climbed up the bed and took her hand, smiling at her. "I -- I'm okay..." He stated. Mireya eyes widened at the sudden drop and released a soft giggle. "You're funny. I like you." She said without hidden agendas or brazen flattery. It was the plain truth as she hold his hand and smiled warmly. "Shall we go, Sebastian?"

Sebastian blinked. "G-go? I thought we were staying here...?" He asked confused. Mireya nodded. "Yeah, we are." She winked at him and then laid back on the bed. "Let's play pretend!" She pointed at the ceiling and at the lights. "They are beautiful stars!" Sebastian blinked and laid next to her, blushing a bit from her winking. "... Y-yeah... T-They are...." He said a little nervous, not sure what to do at all... "Just think what you want to see and tell them... For example, we are in a meadow with the night sky above us." Mireya explained while glancing at him with cheerful demeanor. "It's good to think things that bring you comfort the most." Sebastian blinked, bushing a little more as he inched a little closer towards her. "...Um... Y-yeah...." He looked up at this as he felt his side touching hers. Mireya felt him moving closer to him and she did not mind at all. "The cold night wind blowing through us... The scent of flowers..." Upon saying that, her natural scent of roses could be smelled by those close to her. "It's relaxing... What about you?" Sebastian blushed more at this as he felt his eyes widen a bit. ".... Y-yeah...." He said, shivering a bit at this. "It's really nice..." Mireya murmured under her breath, Her head was now leaning onto his shoulder.

Sebastian smiled slowly at this and wrapped his arms slowly around her, closing his eyes as he moved his head so it could be leaning on hers. ".... It feels nice." He mumbled. "Hmmm..." Mireya murmured as she fully leaned on her and did not mind his actions and soon enough she had fallen asleep. Sebastian blinked as she did this and looked at her. "......" He felt himself sweatdrop as then the door opened and quickly, he fell out of the bed screaming and blushing like an idiot. "You two have been summoned to attend the trial... Um.... What's he doing on the floor?" The sudden commotion woke Mireya up as she sat up and looked at the person who entered. "What?" Then she looked around for Sebastian. "Sebastian?" Soon, she found him on the floor and looked at him awkwardly. "What happened? Did you roll off the hill?" Sebastian got up as he took her hand. "N-nothing.... Let's just go." He mumbled. Mireya looked at him for awhile before taking his hand. She would not pry into it further. "Okay." With that said, she followed him.

~ The Trial! The Ten Most Powerful Exorcists in the world! ~

Morning had come. The sun was in the blue sky, few couds were noticed and the arrivial of Angel brought suspense to all. His three personal Knights surrounded him as they lead him inside, making him feel like a king. Every demon watching tensed up, for some reason they found this all to be... Unusual. There had never been a time when such a large threat had come close to them before, the rare few who weren't there were lucky. They didn't get to meet Angel. As he sat down in his spot, nine holographic figures appeared in they're seats, each looking royal and dressed up for some reason for this. The main one slammed down a hammer, which made a loud echo go throughout the entire room, booming across everywhere. "Bring out the representatives for Ash Clade, Keilani Dreahen and bring out Mr. Morris himself!" The sound of a door being booted open filled the room. If anyone turned to see who did it, they would find the Ex-Leader of the Rogue Division grinning and blowing the smoke from his cigarette from his mouth. Deon cracked his neck and took a few steps forward, before noticing Angel sitting on his 'throne'. Deon grinned, and raised his hand at Angel, waving in a comedic fashion.

"Yoooooo!~ Angel! Remember me? I'm the guy who beat you up in third grade!" Deon suddenly looked down, and muttered to himself. "You're great, great Grandfather was a nice guy, ya know" Deon looked up, and yawned, crushing the cigarette in his hand and looking up at Angel. "So you're not restraining me.... At all?" Deon rubbed his brows, but let it slip. He'd expected some sort of re- His train of thought was cut off as shackles were placed around his wrists and ankles from behind, and he sighed. "Sneaky fuck"

In full business attire, Claire remained at her defendent bench,a briefcase by her side, her hair in a bun, and the ever formal reading glasses framing her face. Standing, she decided to introduce herself. "I will be conducting myself as the representative. I introduce myself to the court as Claire Clade, and am ready to proceed with the hearing, your honour."

Sebastian watched Claire appear, growing nervous as he shifted a little where he sat. Scott and Michael stood nearby, watching and waiting for them to speak up if anything should occur or happen. Everyone else was either seated/watching or waiting to hear what was going up first. The Ex-leader, the child who supposedly killed several soldiers or the person who nearly went on a rampage to destroy the entire base? "First things first..." The main exorcist said as he rose up to his feet, everyone fell silent at this, wondering which was to be done first. "Something unexpected has come to my attention. Angel and several of his witnesses have alerted me that this Keilani went on a sudden rampage after the Ash incident was over and decided to kill several soldiers under the Renegades and the WDL. Does anyone have to say anything against this, or... Shall we pass our verdict now?"

"Indeed your honour. I ask to humbly address the court?" Claire stood again, fully prepared for the coming examination.

"Very well.... You may speak." The main exorcist told her, several of the other holograms nodded in silence and obsevered Claire with caution.

"Firstly, I think the implication that Miss Dreahan made the 'decision' to attack Renegade and WDL forces has been taken completely out of context. Should she have come to such a conclusion as to purposefully eliminate those providing aid to her, she could easily have done so at any moment prior to the incident with Miss Ashley Clade, or during with much more devestating results. In this regard, the violence witnessed, though tragic, was in no way a premeditated action." As she spoke, Claire paced around the court, referring occasionally to a set of papers she carried with her.

Mireya attended the court hearing as she was asked to do so. She stood with Sebastian, Michael, and Scott as she watched the proceeding before her. She had never seen what Ash was capable to do; however, she did see her at the infirmary along with this Keilani person. From her personal opinion, they don't seem the type to be able to do such things that they were being accused of. However, there were a lot of things in this world that can't be explained by just looking. The same could be said about her she guess. "This is just for show. They already decided..." She said to no one in particular.

"It is of the opinion of the defence that instead, other motives played a much stronger role in the actions Miss Dreahan was made to take. Given the nature of the trauma she had endured, one can surmise that she was forced to take drastic measures to defend herself - Indeed, having been assaulted by comrade and foe alike, my client was both in a panicked state of mind, and uncertain who or what to trust in."

"But there was no evidence to support this." One of the other exorcists spoke out, everyone briefly gave they're full attention to this man. "Witnesses have claimed they saw nothing on the scene but bloodshed and violence. Clearly, this woman somehow decided that we were the enemy and treated us as such. Unless.... You have the evidence to contradict this?"

"Survival instincts can cause many things. I'm not admitting the events that followed weren't a tragedy, but merely suggesting that the intensity of the situation and pressure of the situation cause the subsequent accident. My client had just prior barely survived an intense fight for her life, and was likely still working on pure impulse. Intent to bring harm to the WDL or Renegades was never present."

"Given the general distaste by many soldiers to the children, it's quite possible a comment or action by one of them could have brought threat to Miss Dreahan's life, sparking the violent reaction from her out of self defence and fear." Claire adjusted her glasses, returning to stand by her bench for the moment. She coulda bring doubt into whether Keilani had done what she did, but she could call into question the motives and how it came about. That was her only angle of defence for the girl, and she wasn't about to let her down without a fight.

"Nonsense. WDL Warriors do not attack unless they see the situation is fit to do so. Every WDL guard last night was accounted for being at they're positions - not one of them gave a single insult, as far as I've heard. Allow me to demonstrate... Does anyone in here know of a single person who saw this Keilani when she went berserk?!?!" Silence filled the room. "No? Then how are we to believe what you say?"

"How are you to prove otherwise?" Claire retorted, simply. "Your accusations are as much baseless conjecture as my own."

Deon simply stood at the back of the room, and he cocked his head sideways. His smirk grew wider as Claire comtinued to impress him with her know-how and businesslike act. Deon didn't exactly care much, but he was being drawn in. If Claire did a good enough job and got Ash and Keilani out of their punishments, then he didn't even have to be here. Deon's grin faded as the room was reduced to silence, but with Claire's rebuttal, his smirk returned. "Not bad, Claire. Not bad at all" Deon shifted uncomfortably, and looked over the expressions of Angel and his elite Knights. Some of which Deon recognised, others he didn't much care for. He caught Angel's attention, and poked his tongue out at the newly elected Archknight, who gave Deon the bird, and Deon replied by mouthing 'I bet you'd love to, Angel'. Deon grinned as Angel realised he couldn't win, and sat down with a growl and a mumble about how he'd make Deon suffer. Deon simply snickered.

"No one is flawless. All it would take is one false move, one panicked moment of fear, and the whole situation could have been dragged out of hand. Who knows? Perhaps one soldier heard that a child was on rampage in the base, and assumed it was Miss Dreahen? Given the battle she had just been part of, no doubt my client looked the part of that description." Claire pressed her line of doubt, knowing full well that there was no hard evidence of Keilani's motives - How could there be?

"But --" He began, but the main one silenced him quickly with a wave of his arm. "Enough. I've had enough of this, it's clear that we do not have someone who knows the what-ofs about this incident. Now... I have a proposal to make." He said to everyone in the room. "Would Rin step forward please?"

Claire gave a bow, excusing herself and returning to her desk.

During the Trial, Rin had been sitting there patiently, hoping that she wouldn't be called out. Her hopes were shattered when she heard her name called, and she stood. Her entire body was shaking due to nervousness, but she took a few deep breaths and proceeded forward, locking eyes with the one who had called her out. "Yes, sir?"

"Rin of the Demons Division. Since it woud take such an incredible amount of time and patience to move Keilani to the WDL Academy, I am instead going to hold you responsible for training this child to control her powers. You will have two weeks to accomplish this, or... She will be sent to the WDL Academy at once. Am I understood?" Every holographic figure remained silent at first, but then slowly they nodded in response. It was clear this was the better decision to go with.

Rin sighed, and spoke. "Sure. I'll get her trained and ready to control her powers so that this type of thing won't happen again" On the inside, Rin was relieved that she hadn't been asked to get involved with Deon's case, and it probably showed on her face. She sighed again, and spoke. "Is that all, sir?"

"Yes. I will call you back when you are needed. Now.... It's time for the Ash incident. Is the defense ready?"

Rin nodded, and returned to her seat, breathing a sigh of relief. "Damn, that Angel guy kept looking at me weird"
Claire had taken the brief moment pause to remove her glasses, cleaning them and taking the time to recuperate a little. As she was summoned, she steadily donned them once more. "Of course your honour. I patiently await your opening assessment to the case."

"Very well. For this case, we have the most witnesses, the most evidence and we clearly have a possibliity of Eclipse lending help to this case. However... I am going to allow Angel to speak on my behalf on this case... Since he appears to be busy flirting with the damn Phoenix." At this, a nasty glare was given to Angel at this, then eight other glares were added.

The commentary about someone flirting with the one called Phoenix made Mireya release a light laughter. She just found it very funny in a sense and for one, she was not the type to hold back when it comes to humor. It would seemed that she was not really bothered by the seriousness of the situation. However, she does know what was going on at the moment. Truly, how could she not feel that this was so unrealistic. There were even floating bodies before them and the technical term for it was holograms. She was definitely in some cheap sci-fi movie. Where was the director? Covering her mouth, she noticed a few looks towards her. She quickly contained herself and gave a slight wave along with an apologetic smile. "Sorry... Do continue on..."

Deon grinned, and shouted in a teasing tone; "Not my fault I'm so damn hot!~" Angel shot out of his seat at this, and glared. "SILENCE! I SHOULD HAVE YOU KILLED ON THE SPOT, DAMMIT!" Deon simply laughed and jabbed back. "I'd loooove to see you try, Angel. You still owe me for saving your life ya know~" Angel growled and drew Excalibur, pointing it at Deon. "Shush, Phoenix, or your death will be swift" Deon let his head drop, and he muttured to himself, although everyone could probably hear him. "For the last time, you CAN'T kill me" Angel adjusted his tie, and turned to his superior. "I was not flirting, he was attempting to distract me so that his fellow felons could escape of devise a plan to escape" Angel coughed and turned to Claire. "I was given reports that Clade came into contact with the blade, Eclipse. After which she underwent a transformation into a 'darker being', or so it was said, and went on a rampage through this Base. We have numerous eye-witness accounts, evidence in our favour, and much more. What say you in her defence, Miss Clade?" Angel grinned and his eyes lit up. Either way, today was a victory for him.

"Indeed, there's no denying that the one known as Ashley Clade underwent a change, though it was not quite a transformation as has been suggested. Incidently, if it pleases the court, I would from now on prefer my client to be reffered to as either Ash or Ashley, for the sake of clarification between her and myself." Claire paused a moment, bringing up the point to help prevent any further confusion.

Angel sneered, and replied. "Fine, we shall address her as Ashley, for formalities sake. Now, moving on. Care to explain these changes to us, Miss Clade?" Angel's grin widened, until he noticed a certain Phoenikoi smirking at him from the corner of his eye. Angel growled, and spoke. "Pray let us get this over with quickly, his constant interruptions are driving me mad" Angel quickly turned back to Claire, and spoke. "Well, hurry up"

"As you wish. Transformation, as you referred to it, implies that Ash underwent a physical change. This assertion is entirely incorrect, as the physical body that was involved in the incident did not change in the slightest. Instead, at the core of this incident, is the mind." Claire paused, partially for dramatic effect, partially to allow for any interruptions.

Angel simply nodded, trying to ignore the Phoenix who insisted on making his concentration an impossible task. Angel shook his head and turned to Claire. "So you're stating that something or someone caused Ashley's mind to 'change' in a sense, awakening a sort of alter ego, I assume?" Deon smirked. "Still a douchbag"

"A secondary Persona indeed. An entirely seperate entity - One that is entirely different from that of the regular Ash, as I'm certain any of our witnesses can testify to." Claire waited, seeing if such a formality was necessary.

Deon coughed loudly, hoping that people would turn and look at him. "I would say 'Your Honour', but I have more respect for a Sake Dish than I have for you, Angel. Anyways, when I came across Ash, it only took my a little while to notice that it wasn't her. I mean come on, Ash is a snarky bitch, but she isn't a cold-blooded murderer. I have proof to that, too" Angel turned to Deon, and growled. "And what proof would that be?" Deon grinned. "Simple. Our fight with the Monster Train"

Scott closed his eyes as he adjusted his glasses, Michael remained silent and observing, Sebastian was too intent on listening to it all to be able to speak. "So it was your group who took down that thing." One of the exorcists spoke out. "Interesting... We had reports that Drayne and the monster train went missing around the same time. Only, as I recall... The head of Drayne is now being displayed to the demons of the Renegades as a symbol of hope. I wonder... Did you show it mercy?"

Deon grinned. "When we faught the Monster Train, both Ash and I realised that mercy wouldn't be a part of that fight. She visibly changed after we first entered to carriage. There was a young girl who was critically injured by the Demon, and almost immediately Ash changed from her usual demeanor to something.... She got all soft and mushy, pretty much. Even after we defeated the Train, I offered her the chance to finish it off for all of it's sins, but she refused" Deon grinned, and locked eyes with the Head Exorcist. "I know that the majority of us in this room would have killed it off without hesitation, myself included. Ash, on the other hand, still couldn't bring herself to do it, and shit was she happy when I told her that the girl was in Hospital, being treated" Deon laughed, and spoke. "But I'm not here to dwell on that. I came here with a more specific reasoning. Tell me, would you hear me out?"

The head exorcist sighed out as he shrugged his shoulders. "Speak."

Deon grinned. "I offer myself up as a tool of the WDL. You may do as you wish with me. Kill me, torture me, force me into slavery, whatever. I'll be your instrument of 'Divine Justice' or whatever. I, the Executioner, offer myself up to you so that you may do what you wish. I will not leave, I will not betray you, and I will do as you wish for me to until I have become obsolete and you lock me away for eternity, until I rot from the insine or become useful again" Deon looked up, seeing the manic victory in Angel's eyes. "But, there's one condition..." "It's simple and obvious, actually. In fact, I'd be surprised if you didn't already figure it out. You acquit Ash, Keilani, and anyone else in here of all charges, and allow them freedom in whatever they do, and you will not interrupt their lives again. Ever" "After all, an older Brother has to protect his siblings, right?"

Mireya raised an eyebrow upon hearing this statment from the Phoenix. She was not exactly certain how to put his words in context at the moment. This man who seemed to be the type of person who does everything he wants without much regard for anyone else just offered his freedom for someone. It was truly an interesting thing but somehow, she had a vague feeling that there was something more to this. More importantly... "Did he just said older Brother?" She said with a rather loud voice while looking at Deon curiously. She was pretty much certain that she had no relatives unless something came up. "Are you saying that pipsquek is my brother?" Looking at Michael, Scott, Sebastian and then back at Deon.

Deon turned to Mireya. "Did you just call me a pipsqueak?"

The room was loud at this point, and the head exorcist was looking mighty pissed. So pissed, a vein had formed on his forehead. In one quick motion, he slammed the gravel down hard enough to silence everyone talking in fear. "SILLLLLLLLEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNCCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" He demanded, the vein slowly dissapearing as he stood up to attention. "You are not siblings. You only share the Devil's blood, nothing more! Now... As for your 'request', I can not allow it. The children are too important to waste, and if they cause any trouble or become a threat like Mr. Chang was, then I have no choice but to do my JOB! However.... There is a solution. If... You take full responsibility for the events that have occured yesterday."

"...." Deon looked down, and closed his eyes. His base instincts were telling him to tell them he was joking, and for a few moments he felt like doing just that, but... He'd come here for a reason, and he'd been prepared for the worst. Deon looked up, his eyes blazing with intensity and determination, locking with the Exorcists own. "I do"

Mireya was about to answer Deon. She calls everyone smaller than her pipsqueak. However, the geezer with anger management issues intervened. She covered her ears in response as his voice was definitely that of nightingale. It was more fiiting for a crow. "Someone has menopause problems..." She muttered under her breath while pouting like much a child. It was then she looked at Deon again and heard his answer. She could not help but release a sigh. This man was either a genius or a fool.

"Very well! Miss Claire, in response to this, you will have one week to prove your sister is, in fact, a nice person and is not a threat to society. If you can not do this in one week... I will see to it she is sent to my personal dungeons!" He glanced at Angel before looking at Claire. "Are you both satisfied with my decision?"

"You are gracious and accommodating your honour. I promise my sister will undergo reformation for her attitude." Claire smirked a little at the private dig at her kin.

Angel simply growled and nodded. Rin, who was sitting within earshot of Mireya, sighed and whispered. "Just what the heck is Deon up to? Sure, he's strong enough to take on Angel and basically any Exorcist, but this.... This is a risk even for him" Rin glared at the Phoenix, who simply grinned, but his eyes were stern and determined, not cheerful and full of happiness. Rin furrowed her brows. "Something's definitely off"

"Very well! Now... For the final trial! Deon Morris!" He announced, everyone looking at him. "... You know the charges, you know the reasons, and you also know how you act. You also know the WDL guards you killed during the time Angel had taken Arthur's spot. Now.... Will the defense argue against this?"

"I believe the client would prefer to defend himself, your honour. However, should he require my consultation, I would be happy to oblige." Claire looked to Deon, allowing him the option.

Deon grinned as his name was called, and his prior demeanour returned. "YES, IT IS I! THE IMMORTAL! HAHAA!~" Deon grinned and cracked his neck. "I can argue that Angel's a dick and he deserved it. Also thanks, but no thanks Claire. You're a pretty good Lawyer though, take care of your sister or I'll kick your ass into the next century. Possibly literally" Deon turned back to the Main Exorcist and grinned. "Hey, not my fault I'm slowly going crazy. Ya know, kookoo? Gaga? Anyways, do I even need a trial, boss man?" "Blame the dude with the glasses that likes to dissect people and make them go crazy. Can I sleep in a nice cell now?"

Hearing the cat-girl's comment whose name was Rin, Mireya glanced at her. "If you say this is not normal, then it just means he has an ace under his sleeves." Crossing her arms over her chest, she cannot help but have a small smile. "Or he is just doing what he feels like at the moment, like a brother would do to his so-called siblings." Looking at Claire's direction, she closed her eyes momentarily. "Just like that Claire is doing for her sister." Then, she released a sigh while looking at Deon with a very comical depressing expression. "Or he is just a plain idiot. Hey, I've heard he's mad."

Deon sighed and slid to the ground, a yawn escaping his lips. "I haven't had a good sleep in...like, aaages" Meanwhile, Rin turned to Mireya and smirked. "He isn't maad, he just likes toying with people, ya know? Besides, he's a good guy at heart, ask anyone who knows him really, and they'll say that to ya. He's just had a loooong past and sometimes he gets a little gaga because of it. By the way, my name's Rin, leader of the Demon's Division of the Renegades. You're Mireya, right?"

Raising a hand up slowly, the head exorcist snapped his fingers as he nodded. "... Everyone. Code. Nine." And all of a sudden, all the WDL guards, soldiers, knights and the like rose up and took out a white mechanically advanced gun, each of them pointing it at a Renegade soldier who was either a demon or who had demon blood. The only person who wasn't aimed at was Claire and Deon. "WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?!?!" Scott shouted out as he saw everyone who was pointed at now had a red dot on they're forehead. "BE QUIET! I AM CALLING THIS INTO A SERIOUS ISSUE! Now... DEON MORRIS! If you say you are innocent and should receive the least of punishments, then I will execute everyone here with demon blood, who has even an INCH of demon blood, EXECUTED ON THE SPOT! If you say you are guilty... I will let them go. It is, after all, up to you... Mr. Madman's apprentice."

Mireya looked at Rin and smiled warmly as if she knew that from the very start. "I know. We are kind of related aren't we?" After saying that, she looked at Deon again who was yawning. "He is not that bad..." Hearing Rin's introduction, she turned to her and nodded. "Yeah. Nice to formally meet you Rin."

Claire remained still, watching the scenario unfold. Though she was prepared to take action, she was confident that they wouldn't act on such an unorthodox and bloody approach to the matter.

Deon ground his teeth in anger, before standing up. "Madman's Apprentice? That was a long time ago, my friend. Ah well, I guess I'll have to pay for my past. Again" Deon's expression turned stern, and his eyes blazed even stronger. "I will pay the full price for any and all sins and acts of unfair or criminal basis that I have committed. On the notice that you never, ever enter this place again, I will take full responsibility for any and all heinous actions or crimes I ever have or will commit" Deon's expression softened, and he spoke again, appearing calm and collected. "In other words, I admit it. I am Guilty"

Mireya's eyes narrowed at the sudden turn of events. It was just like she had commented earlier. "This is just for show. They already decided..." Her words from before flashed through her mind. She hated it when what she said appeared to be right at some point. Clicking her tongue, she looked at holograms and the one named Angel with cold authority. She was definitely not liking those guys. WDL or whatever they are if they do shoot, she would definitely show them they picked the wrong person to mess with literally.

Rin's eyes widened as the red dot appeared on her forehead, and she began to shudder. "Oh god, I hate lazers. It's like our bane. You know when you have a lazer and you mess with your cat with it? Well, that's a lazer and I'm a Cat, technically, sooo...." Rin closed her eyes and took deep breaths. "Don't chase the red light. Don't chase the red light" Each gun was put away at this and every WDL member waited for the command.

"Very well. As of this moment, the verdict is hereby passed. You are to be sentenced to be BANISHED from the Renegade forces FOREVER! You will be replaced, sadly... Don't worry. That is for another day that does not concern you. You are also sentenced to rot for 10,000 years in the dungeons of the WDL or otherwise, should you be moved. You are also at liberty to do WHATEVER Angel tells you to do, and if you leave WDL grounds, you will be turned to dust and sent to the bottom of the OCEAN!" With those words said, the exorcist leader looked over at Angel. "Take him away. Our business here is done." And with that, the 9 holograms vanished.

The tension and irritation that Mireya was feeling was immediately washed away upon hearing Rin's reaction. She could not help but laugh quite heartily. "So funny!" Once more, the question ws raised. Is she really treating the situation at hand seriously or just child's play. But, she regained her serious facade when she heard the annoucement for Deon's punishment. She covered her mouth and could not help but want to topple down those spoiled brats from their high and mighty position. After all, the bigger you are the further you fall. "Pretentious bastards." She said quite loudly without interest if any of those so-called WDL heard her.

Deon sighed, but a snarky comment still escaped his lips. "You CAN'T kill me, dammit!" Deon laughed, but Rin saw through it. "Imprisonment, the one thing that he's actually terrified of. Well shit, they must really hate him... And he's banished from the Renegades too. Fuck it all!" Rin booted the chair in front of her out of anger, and it's patron glared at her. "Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck!" Meanwhile, Deon sighed, the fire in his eyes dying as he realised what would actually be happening to him. He sighed again, and let his head drop, but he still couldn't stop the smirk from appearing on hs face. "The things I do for my loved ones. Sheesh, I'm getting too old" Angel strode up to Deon, and grinned like he owned the world. "You're my tool of destruction now, Deon, and you-" Angel was cut off as spit hit him in the face. "Haha, gotchya!" Angel growled and punched Deon straight in the gut, and Deon simply laughed at him, which made Angel storm away in anger. A tall man in full armour approached Deon, and Deon spoke. "Excuse me sir, but could I get a glass of water?"

Scott closed his eyes tightly as Michael clutched his arms at this. "No.... This was all a set up." Michael mumbled to himself. "Of course it was. Keilani and Ash were only the diversions... They intended to either capture Deon or send him to oblivion. Damn it!"

Mireya looked at Scott, Michael, and then Rin. Hearing their comments, she then looked at Deon who was still acting all tough. "Then, I'll make a diversion."

Rin turned to Scott and Michael and glared. "What now!? You know how much he hates imprisonment, he goes on about it all the time! 500 years in that dungeon broke him, and now he's got 10,000 years!? Man, he'll be in a whole new world, and not only that! They'll probably forget about him, and probably on purpose too!" At Mireya's comment, Rin shook her head. "No. He's got a plan, he's got to. He's got that glint in his eye"

Mireya looked at Rin for a moment. "Then you should stop your commentary then" She looked at Deon "You'll just make it worse for him"

"Quiet! We already have a plan for Deon's division... You two just stop talking! NOW!" Scott whispered to them, glaring at them both before looking back at Deon.

With that being said, she jumped down from the platform she was in without much regard. Fortunately, she landed on her feet. "I finally got that perfect."

Rin watched as they put a bag over Deon's head and tightened it with a thick cord, and tied his wrists up with steel chains. A small box was brought in on a wheeler, and after reinforcing the steel bindings with leather straps, then threw him inside and tightened the clamps to keep him in place, and shut the lid. Angel entered the room, a smirk on his face. "Not so confident now, are you?" His only answer was a laugh. Angel glared, and observed as chains were placed around the box. Several vials filled with liquid were placed into holes on the box, and Angel spoke. "Pure Holy Water, it's a complete bitch to your kind, ya know" Angel laughed as the box was carted away, and he turned. "Anyone else wish to join him?" Angel's voice rang out in the clearing, full of pride and boastfulness. "Anyone, anyone at all?" Rin glared at the man, and clenched her fists. "If I could punch that fucker!"

Mireya smiled at Angel's cocky statements. She approached the man. "I have something to do for you." Without furter ado, she kissed Angel on the lips. It was trully a shocking dispaly. At that very moment, her passive ability that has no off-switch activated. She was sucking his lifeforce out of him. However, she was able to stop leaving enough for him to replenish within the next few days or months, whatever works and not die. "I have been told that my kisses are to die for. Thanks for the meal." She winked at Angel. One thing about Mireya when she hates someone or dislikes. She is not too subtle in showing it.

Angel staggered back, coughing violently. "What did you just do to me? You bitch?" From inside the now-leaving box, Deon called out. "Good game, kid!", followed by laughter. As the box was tugged out of the building, Angel regained his composure. "You'll pay for that, bitch!" And then Rin landed on him. Literally. Rin stood and dusted herself off, a grin on her face. "Ooopsie daisy~" Rin's voice was laden with sarcasm, and she winked at Mireya. "Man, I'm starved. Chat over lunch?" With that, Rin extended her hand to the other girl, a grin on her face. Angel stood, growling. "Heh, I'll make sure Deon pays the price for your idiocy, bitches" With that, he staggered away, still coughing.

Mireya took out something from her pocket and threw it at Angel. It was a rock. Janet had told her to always bring one for self defense especially when she goes home from work. It hit Angel squarely at the back of his head. "It would be best not to be such a spoiled little brat especially being a pansy." Her eyes that were smiling earlier were now glazed with a threat. "If you have something against me do it. If you get him involved, I swear the next kiss I'll give you will be your death." After saying that, she looked at Rin and smiled. "Sure! Let's have lunch!" Taking the girl's hand "Sebastian, come and join us!"

Sebastian blinked and walked over, titing his head a bit as he did. "..... Um..... Okay...." He said a bit nervously.

Then glancing at Scott who was not probably pleased with her actions and then Michael as well. "Let's eat... Oh you better give Deon something to eat" Looking at Angel with a deathly glare

Rin turned to Sebastian and grinned, and she glared at Angel after Mireya's statement was made, who simply give them the bird before disappearing through the door. Suddenly, someone nobody would've expected to enter, entered. Rin's eyes widened, and her mouth dropped open. "Oh god, Quake!?" The oni simply smirk and eyed them. "So, what'd I miss. Also, got any food, I'm hungry as an Oni after nearly dying can be!" With that, she let out a laugh, but was cut short by a coughing fit. "No jokes thought, I don't want to literally die of laughter"

Mireya looked at Sebastian and smiled warmly as she reached out her free hand to him. "Don't be too nervous. It's just lunch." Then, she glanced towards the newcomer with a curious look. "Quake? Like an earthquake?" She asked while blinking her eyes in a rather adorable manner.

Quake grinned, and spoke. "Well yeah, but I'll explain over lunch. Can we hurry up, it looks like you've got a ton of shit to tell me and I'm not supposed to be out here because I might 'die', but meh, it's too cramped in there for me, ya know?" Quake grinned, and motioned for Mireya, Rin and Sebastian to follow her, and possibly Scott and Michael too. "Come on, I want some Steaks!"

Scott and Michael both groaned out at this as they began to follow them. "Is she going to do the usual?"
"She is."
"Oh my god, stop her."
"I can't.... It's too late! She's up!"
"I'm going to die!"
"Me first, asshole!"
Sebastian blinked and wrapped his arms slowly around her arm and leaned close to her at this, acting more like a little child then before suddenly.

Mireya shrugged her shoulders and then took a deep breath. She was still not completely satisfied with the whole punishment deal for Deon. Somewhere inside her mind, she was thinking very complicated ideas. However on the outside, there was not a slightest hint of it. She simply smiled afterwards while looking Sebastian warmly .She did not mind at all "Alright! Time for steaks! I want the big ones!"

S: "I do too, but then again --"
M: "Quake eats everything."
S: "And she'll get the big ones."
M: "Always does man."
S and M: "ALWAYS!"

Quake grinned, and spoke. "No way, they're mine, shorty!" Rin simply sighed, and grinned. "Distractions, we need them" "Race ya there, kiddo!" With that challenge to Mireya, Quake dashed off, laughing heartily, leaving Rin shock. "W-Wait, you can't have them aaaaall!" With that, she took off too.

Mireya looked at Scott and Michael with disappointment. "You're men! Act like one! If not, I am calling you Sadist and Masochist from now on!" It was then she heard Quake's challenge. "Hey! I haven't agree yet! I change the deal! The slowest one wins all!"

~ Celebration or Otherwise?! ~

Quake sat at the table, grabbing the Steak and biting into it, juices spilling down onto her plate as she nommed away in happiness. Rin observed this, and faceplanted onto the table while Quake swallowed the Steak whole and shouted out. "GIMME MOAR!" Rin sighed. "Don't challenge her to a drinking competition, Mireya. Ever"

Michael sat next to Rin in total silence as he laid his face down on the table. You could hear him sobbing a little. Scott cleared his throat. ".... Quake. I have something to ask."

Quake looked at Scott, a steak hanging out of her mouth. "Wsh vht?" Suddenly, she flicked her head back and devoured the Steak whole. She wiped her mouth, and eyed Scott. "What's that?" Rin patted Michael on the back. "It's alright, I'll buy you a Steak later man. I'll buy everyone a Steak. Except Quake"

Mireya sat on her chair while eating a rather large piece of her steak. After swallowing the portion she placed in her mouth earlier, her eyes of blue looked at Rin in question. "Drinking contest?"

In response to that, Quake grinned widely. "Alcohol-wise, nobody here can outdrink me except Deon! Haha, I bet you can't even handle Sake, Kiddo" Rin buried her face into the table further, and sighed. Why did I even mention drinking?".

Scott felt his eye twitch at this as he sighed out, it felt more like a groan. ".... I need to ask you if you.... Will be the new leader of the Rogue's Division?" Meanwhile, Sebastian sat watching it all, leaning agaisnt Mireya as he clung to her arm like a frightened child.

The new steak in Quake's mouth dropped to the plate, and she leaned back in surprise. "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH!?!?!?!?" In seconds, Quake's head joined Rin's and Michael's on the table, and she groaned. "Doesn't that mean I'll have to be SOBER?..." Rin patted Quake on the back. "It's alright Quake, sobriety can be fun too"

Scott goaned out. "... You know you are the only qualified person for the job! There's no one else here who can do it!" "I'll trade places." "SHUT UP MICHAEL!"

Mireya blinked her eyes a couple of times before digesting the information about a drinking contest. She was thinking of passing it up but upon hearing that she was not able to take it. Her eyes were filled with determination "I will take you on a drinking competition!" She said with intensity and then looked at Sebastian. "Don't worry. You want a piece of my steak?"

Quake's head shot up at the mention of a challenge, and she rocketed up from here seat and shouted. "500 rounds of Sake, right here right now! It's a Sake fight!" Rin lifted her head from the table, and slammed it down onto it again. "Gah, me and my big mouth" Meanwhile, Asmodeus and the Seven Sins were sitting nearby. "Quake's tits are biiiiiig!~" "Shut up, Az!"

Sebastian nodded at this as he looked up at her. Scott groaned. "....I forgot. We're stuck with them now..... I don't know what to do with them."

Suddenly, 1,000 Sake Gourds were placed in front of the group. 500 for Quake and 500 for Mireya. Each had about 5 liters of Sake in them, and that ended up being a LOT of Sake. Quake grinned, and spoke. "Hope ya can stomach this, Kiddo!" Rin just facetabled again.

Mireya handed it to Sebastian. "Here. You can have all of this! I'll just show this Quake who is boss!" After saying that, she faced Quake while rolling up her sleeves preparing for the battle. "Bring them on!" She smirked at Quake. "You'll bite the dust!"

Quake simply grinned, lifting up one of the Sake Gourds and pushing it to her lips, downing the entire thing and moving onto the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and then next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, etc. Rin lifted her arm up to try and stop Quake and Mireya, but she just let it fall down onto the table in exasperation. "I give in, gimme some Sake"

Sebastian took the steak and began to eat it slowly while watching. Michael rose his head up. "Maybe we should leave and let them do they're thing..."

Mireya looked at the Sake and did the same thing. She was not going to lose. The one thing she hates the most than being yelled at is being told that she would lose or not be able to do something. She'll be damned before she let anyone get the best of her. Soon, she was emptying the Sake Gourds one by one. It was quite a sight really.

Within 5 minutes, Quake had finished at least 400 of her Gourds, and was still going. She grinned at the Bartend, who began reusing the gourds for more Sake, and an endless stream of Gourds kept piling up onto the table. Quake grinned at Mireya, and kept on drinking as if it wasn't even affecting her. "Getting hard yet, Kiddo?" From somewhere in the background, Asmodeus giggled uncontrollably. "Nyahahaha! Hard! Hahahaha!"

Michael watched from another table with Rin. ".... Yeah this is too far out of hand."

Rin lifted her head up, and looked at Michael. "Wanna have a contest of our own?" Rin laughed her cute cat-ish laugh. (Nyahahahahahaha~) and fell out of her seat. "Nyahahahaow"

Mireya glared at Quake. She wanted to wipe off that cocky grin on her face. "I'm not going to lose!" With renewed determination, she had just 50 sakes left before her and somehow, she seemed unfazed by the Sake she had drank.

Michael blinked. "A contest of what?"

Rin then sat up, and shrugged. "Iunno, waddabout Catn- I mean erm.... Uhh, Oooh Red Do- Uhmmm... Any ideas?" Quake grinned at her opponent, who seemed to be unphased by her alcohol intake. Quake downed yet another Sake Gourd, totalling her near the 700's now. "Hurry up, slowpoke. Or it's an automatic fail!"

Michael blinked again. ".....What are we on about? Drinking or what?"

Rin sighed and lay her head on the table. "I have no idea, man. No idea at all"

Mireya quickened her pace and was now matching up to Quake's intake in about 788 sake gourds. Still, she remained uninfluenced by the alcohol. Her eyes were focused on the goal. "No way!"

Quake grinned, downing yet another Gourd, but before she could grab another a man in a Doctor's Coat burst into the room, instructing Guards to grab her and take her away. Quake sighed, and put down the Gourd. "It's a tie for now, but I'm just gonna...." Quake quickly grabbed Mireya's remaining Steaks and the steaks of everyone else, then ran off to somewhere to nom on them all, laughing all the while. The man in the Doctor's coat was wearing nothing but a purely white loincloth underneath it, and he sighed, "Not again" The, he walked off. Rin facetabled again, and sighed. "We are the Renegaaaades, nyaa nyaa nyaa~"

Mireya blinked for a couple of times before she realized what was happening and when she did, "Hey! Wait a minute! I won't accept a tie!" She stood from her seat and was about to ran after Quake when she noticed the doctor in just a loincloth. "You wear something! Perverted doctor!" After saying that, she released a loud sigh and sat back on her chair while looking at Sebastian. "Can you do me a favor?" Her eyes that were alit with determination became hazy with drunkness. It would appear her sheer will power was the only thing that made her go through all of it. "I---" She was not able to complete her sentence as she fell asleep her head on the table.

Sebastian blinked as he looked around at this. "...................................."

Rin raised her head, and smiled. "Oh god, if Deon was here he'd be laughing his ass off right now, eh Michael?" With that, Rin succombed to sleep as well, her head hitting the table and her snoring beginning. "ZzzzzNyaa.... ZzzzzzNyaaa... ZzzzzNyaaa.... ZzzzzNyaaaa.... ZzzzzNyaaaa... ZzzzNyaaa"

Scott blinked. "Did no one go to sleep last night....?"

In an instant, Mireya was off to dreamland wherever that may be. Her breaths were even emphasizing that she was in deep slumber. Her face was now obviously red now as her cheeks were flushed. It was enough to say that she was definitely drunk.


Rin's head arose from it's place on the table, and she stood, rehearsing the steps to Thriller by Michael Jackson. She had this weird look on her face the entire time, a mix between unconsciousness and ecxtasy as she danced around everyone, and suddenly. Jiang-Shi. Jiang-Shi everywhere. Rin eventually DID stop dancing, but the amount of Jiang-Shi in the area was just... lots. LOTS of Jiang-SHi, man. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of Jiang-Shi, man. Then she turned into her Cat Form and slept on Michael's head and pretended to be a hat that snored like "ZzzzzNyaaa... ZzzzzNyaaaa.... ZzzzzNyaaaa"

~ Disturbing Messages! A new terror appears on Earth! ~

The Jello Demon had rejoined with Bellfoar and Chill as they had finished setting up the bombs, when a strange new figure approached them. On his right arm was that of a purple armband with a silver pin. He stopped and drew his sword, aiming it at Bellfoar. "I am Middle 2nd Class of the WDL forces - Ronald! I am here to challenge you, Bellfoar the Boom Racer!" And with that, Ronald vanished from sight. Bellfoar's eyes widened as he looked around for signs of Ronald, only to be kicked in the side of his face as he was sent flying away from The Jello Demon and Chill, who both watched in surprise as Bellfoar was sent crashing into the ground suddenly. Getting up, Bellfoar growled as he looked at Ronald, who landed and aimed his sword at him. Angered by this, Bellfoar dashed towards Ronald, the two going into hated action. Meanwhile, The Jello Demon and Chill both looked back to see an Upper 1st Class approach them both. "If you gentlemen will allow Ronald to fight, I will only be here to make sure you do not intervene. Who am I, you ask? I am Upper 1st Class of the WDL forces - Timothy!"

~ -- ~

A Knight was helping Angel depart when he felt something troubling near by. He motioned for the others to go on ahead while he stayed behind, watching as a mysterious figure walked out of the shadows of the trees. "You... Yami?!" He asked as Yami rose his head up and smiled at him. Pulling his hands out of his pockets, Yami appeared above the Knight with quick speed and sent down a ball of shadows at him. The knight rolled out of the way as the shadow ball hit, expanding around for two miles before finally stopping. The knight rose up as he glared at Yami, who landed with grace and smiled as his hands were behind him. "So... You are the Yami I seek after all. Very well, since I already know your name, allow me to introduce myself!" And with that, the Knight drew out his sword as it glowed brightly in the morning sunlight, Yami raising a brow as he watched the Knight get into a stance. "I am Sir Melvin! COME AT ME, DEMON!" A smirk came on Yami's face as he threw his arms back and both dashed for one another.

~ -- ~

Scott felt something vibrating in his pocket as he put his hand in there and drew it out. His eyes widened with horror as he quickly got up and raced off. Three minutes later, they heard his voice ringing out. "ATTENTION EVERYONE! PREPARE TO DEFEND THE BASE! THREE HEAVY FIGHTS HAVE BEEN SPOTTED AND THEY ARE QUICKLY HEADING THIS WAY! I REPEAT, PREPARE TO DEFEND THE BASE FROM SHOCKWAVES!"

#, as written by Tanman
I wasn’t sure when I had fallen asleep. It was kind of embarrassing, considering I’d intended to stay awake until Keilani was up and about. Instead, I found myself waking to her quiet gasp, my eyes lazily opening to look at her as she winced, falling back into the bed. She said something, but it wasn’t really audible to me, and so I found myself sitting up, intending to grab her attention, and maybe see if she needed any more help. It seemed she’d felt my presence, turning to face me as her expression changed into… Well, I’d be inclined to say it was tears of joy. Maybe relief. It was… Refreshing for me. I hadn’t seen someone feel that way about me in a long time. Struck by the moment, I delayed my thanks perhaps too long as Keilani spoke, wanting to ask me a question I briefly nodded, before she inquired into Blanche’s safety, drawing a weak smile from me. It said a lot about someone’s character when their concern went to others before themselves.

“Blanche was pretty injured, but Claire seemed to think she’d be fine with some rest.” It was a little truth stretch, but I couldn’t imagine Claire would neglect to inform me if Blanche was in critical condition. Seeing Keilani’s soft eyes, I couldn’t help but feel the need to ease her worry, speaking once more. “Considering the beating she’d taken, I’d like to think that you probably saved her.” Pausing as I thought on it a bit, it seemed now was the perfect segue into thanking Keilani for what she did. Both for me and Blanche. So I just had to say it. Those two words. Just… Be polite. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I mean… Stalling like this is pretty stupid. It’s not like I’ve gotta be ashamed… Come on Ash, just do it!

“So uh… Well.. T-Thanks… For saving Blanche I mean.” Turning away sharply, I leant my hand in my face, hiding the slight tinge to my cheeks as I forced out the next set of words, mumbling them almost inaudibly. “And for saving me…” Annoyed at my own sheepishness, I hopped off the bed, grabbing my jacket and pulling it on as I continued to run my mouth. “So like, everything you saw and happened in there, you better not go telling anyone. Got it?” In my attempts to sound tough, it occurred to me I was probably making the whole thing sound less convincing. Shaking my head, I turned to face Keilani again giving a bit of a deep sigh.

“Look I’m just… Not good at this sort of thing, okay? So just… Keep it to yourself alright?” I’m gonna get the nurse, see if she can help you and maybe take you to see Blanche…” Trailing off, I turned away again, attempting to ignore Keilani’s expression as I set about finding one of the medical staff.




After the trial, I got told numerous things. Deon had been taken to the WDL, in exchange for Keilani and my freedom. It was a bittersweet victory, and probably the worst part of it was I felt a little indebted to the asshole. Still, it was nice of Claire to come and inform Keilani and myself while the others were off at a bar or something. Apparently, we were to undergo training of our abilities so we could better work at fighting against the evil demons of the world, and that we needed teachers for it – Keilani was to be working with Rin, while myself, Kane and Sebastian were to learn from my sister. It wasn’t something I was entirely comfortable with, but the next day, I found myself heading off to the meeting area to receive the start of my training…




“Kane, your swordsmanship is excellent, but you lack balance and refinement in what you do, therefore…” With a wave of her hand, Kane was forced to watch as a glass of water floated over, being telekinetically hold on top of his head by Claire. “You’ll have to balance this for the entirety of today. Should it break, I’ll provide you with a new one.”

“W-what? There’s no way I can keep this-“
Kane stopped as the glass fell forward, drenching him a little. Claire giggled a little, before refilling the glass and returning it to his head. “You’ll have to learn fast then. Now, be a dear and head down to my room and grab my bag, ‘kay? Each time it spills, you’ll have to come back here for a refill and start over.” Claire giggled as the glass tipped once more, forcing Kane to sit and stand multiple times until he finally managed to get up without losing the glass. Slowly, very very slowly, he started making his way out of the room. With the first of the assignments set, Claire next turned her attention to Sebastian.

“Now as for you young man, I think it’s time you started to get a handle on those powers of yours. So, we’re going to start simple.” Sitting up, Claire gestured to a nearby wood fire and an ice cube, a sizable distance between them. “I want you to control the heat, and attempt to melt that ice, before Kane gets back with my bag.” Stretching a little, Claire smiled to Sebastian. “If you can do that, you’ll earn a reward. I’ll make sure it’s something really special if you don’t need my help either.”

Standing, Claire next made her way over to Ash, looking her in the eye. “As for you Sis… Come with me.”

The feeling that a hundred of solid steel were taken off was the one Keilani felt after hearing from Ash that Blanche was fine and just needed rest. It did not occur to her how she was able to save the white cat from a powerful being such as an angel. She released a very relieved sigh at this and calmly laid on her bed with her eyes closed. Her body muscles relaxed and the physical strain she placed on herself could be felt more vividly. It only meant that she was now more attuned to her condition. Her right shoulder delivered pain at an interval and she could not yet freely moved it. It was safe to conclude that it was still broken. Her body's regenerative abilities must have greatly slowed due to the exhaustion she had prior coming to the Renegade Headquarters and now coupled with what she had done earlier. Regardless, this was not something she was concerned about. She was more worried about the thought of losing someone in her midst. It would be devastating despite it being a cat. It was still a living being and a helpful companion even if their meeting was just for a brief moment. "Blanche is fine.." It was a statement that repeated within her mind for a couple of times before her attention was taken away once more by Ash.

At first, Keilani was not certain what Ash wanted to say. Although, she could tell that the black-haired girl seemed flustered about something. She was about to assure her that there was no need to tell her that "thing" if Ash was not comfortable about it. But before she could, the words were already spilled in a stuttering manner with a tint of sheepishness accompanying it. The slight blush had gone unnoticed by her. It appeared that Ash had thanked Keilani about saving Blanche and almost inaudible to the ears the words of gratitude in saving her as well. If it was not for the fact that the infirmary was dead silent, Keilani would have missed Ash's thank you. The older girl even told her not to tell anyone about this as she seemed to be leaving her. Well, she did not find anything odd about saying thank you or why would she have to tell others about this. It was quite obvious with Keilani's perplexed expression.

“Look I’m just… Not good at this sort of thing, okay? So just… Keep it to yourself alright?” I’m gonna get the nurse, see if she can help you and maybe take you to see Blanche…”

Then, something finally clicked inside Keilani's mind. Ash perhaps was not the kind that say thank you so casually or the kind to express her feelings most of the time. Judging by their encounter inside Ash's mind, she could tell that Ash had the tendency to cover up her feelings instead of telling them as it is. A small smile appeared on Keilani's face and it grew bigger upon hearing that she could see Blanche. It was highly unlikely for Keilani to speak what happened between the two of them with others. Still, she would honor the request asked of her. It was the least she could do. As the older girl took her leave without even glancing at her, Keilani took the small opening to say a few words despite how weak-sounding her voice appeared to be. "I won't tell and thank you, Ash." After saying that, she closed her eyes with a gentle expression on her face and felt the wave of sleepiness took over her. She welcomed it gratefully as all the worries she had were now washed away. Slowly, she drifted to slumber. Unknown to her, there were greater matters that everyone else was going on about as the trial about her rampage ensued or the verdict that Deon had taken for her and Ash. More importantly, the eyes of an arachnid filled with obvious malice gazed at her from an undisclosed location.

Time passed by like that as Keilani spent most of her time in the infirmary. She had the opportunity to see Blanche who was recovering better than her. If she had known better, the white feline seemed to be scolding her about something. As such, she found herself apologizing profusely. It was quite an awkward moment where the people present in that scene could not help but be baffled and find humor in it as well. In any case, The medical staff had reprimanded her to move so she would not overexert herself like before. So, she followed their advice and remained in her bed for quite some time. In that interim, she had been informed that a trial had gone underway in her absence. Claire had represented her in it and a man named, Deon took the full burnt of the verdict. She was not told of the exact details or the casualties involved in the case that was made against her. But, she was not completely unaware that something was being hidden from her. She constantly inquired about it but the answers would always be avoided or vague to conclude anything. All she was told is that she had lost control of her power and destroyed an entire section of the headquarters and the damage spread to the other parts as a result. There was this uneasy feeling once more lingering in her once more.

"I believe you have heard your verdict." Keilani looked at the direction of the voice and saw a familiar face. It was the man she had met the first time she woke in the infirmary. "Dr. Hyde..." The man gave a small smile and approached her bedside while looking at her charts as it would seem. "Do you really want to die that badly?" She looked away from the doctor knowing that her current medical findings were not very good. "I should have not strained myself too much." There was a moment of silence before she heard a loud sigh from the doctor. "At least, you know how to reflect. In any case, I have been asked to clear you. So, that you can start your training." Rose pink eyes were once more on the doctor as she listened to it intently. "So, I'm good?" He shook his head and looked dejectedly at her charts. "No. You are in no condition to do that and you know it." She looked at her hands that were clasped together on her stomach and had an expression of complete resignation. "Yeah..." Hyde lowered the charts to a nearby endtable and took out something from his pocket. "But Rin is insisting due to the lack of time. So, I am about to give you this." He handed her something which she took with curiosity. "What is this?" He pushed up his glasses to realigned it to his eyes before speaking. "A placebo. It will take the exhaustion and pains away for the whole cycle. But once you sleep, the toll that you added on that day would be added to the true condition of your body."

Keilani looked at the small vial in a new light. "So, I could train with this?" Hyde nodded and had a rather concerned look on his face. "I would not recommend this. The body could only take so much even if you are supposed to be special." He paused and then released another sigh. "Anyway, I told Rin not to put much strain on you hopefully and you are to report to me by the end of your training every day to check on your health." She gave him a smile of appreciation and held the small vial with blue liquid closed to her. "Thank you very much, Dr. Hyde. I will do as you say." He shook his head again lightly and took the charts he placed on the table. "Just take good care of yourself kid." After saying that, he was about to leave when she stopped him with a question. "Dr. Hyde. Can you tell me what really happened when my powers went out of control? Did I hurt anybody?" There was a looming silence between them and she can feel the tension that her inquiry had caused. "Doctor?" It was answered by a small sigh and then he looked over his shoulder to gaze at her. "You know, if you want to live a happy life, don't ask questions, you don't want to hear the answers to." He then continued his leave while she had a very perplexed and sad expression on her face. "Happy life... really..."

After a few hours, Keilani had been cleared to do some light training as she had been required to kept her powers in check for a short time of two weeks. Her teacher would be a person named Rin. Well, she was not opposed to that idea. However, she wondered how she will be trained when she, herself, does not know the very nature of her abilities. Perhaps, they have some equipment that could identify her powers without much trouble. She walked along the hallways while a group of Renegade soldiers escorted her. The men maintained a good distance from her and she could sensed the feelings of anxiety, fear, and hatred. They seemed to be heavily armed which even deepened her suspicions that she did not just damaged the structure in her outburst that she has no memories about. Truth be told, she had tried very hard recalling the events of that day. However, they were not there in her mind as if none of those memories existed in the first place. Lowering her head, she followed the men silently as she would be delivered to the training hall where the one called Rin was waiting for her.

Soon enough, Keilani stood before a very large door. She had heard that Claire would be teaching Ash, Sebastian, and Kane. It was a relief to hear that the two boys were doing fine. After all, the last time she saw them was when the dark Ash threw them away like garbage. In any case, she should be more concerned about herself. The soldiers opened the doors for her and she could feel the piercing looks directed on her. She bit her lower lip in sadness and confusion while giving a small nod of appreciation. "Thank you for your assistance." With that, she entered the room and the doors were quickly closed behind her. She looked at the doors for awhile before looking away with sadness. She really did not mind being hated although, she wanted to know the exact reasons for it. Closing her eyes and taking a deep breath, she made herself forget those concerns for now. She should focused at the task in hand in which she opened her eyes and began walking forward. "Hello? I'm Keilani Dreahen. Is my instructor Rin here?" She asked with a very polite and timid disposition as she looked around the large room.

As she reached the center of the room, she stopped and looked around curiously. Her hair was put into a high ponytail so it would interrupt her line of vision if she was about to do some physical exercises. This time she wore a pair of jeans and some loose shirt she had been handed by one of the nurses. Her right arm is also placed in a sling as it yet to be fully healed. Despite that, she looked mundanely stunning in it. In any case, her clothes were still at her dormitory which made her wonder how Fran was doing. Releasing a soft sigh, she wondered if she had arrived early. She wanted to be distracted from the secrets that seemed to pile up one after another. "Anyone?"

"I always wanted to be strong... So, this time..."

A loud ringing could be heard somewhere. It was then a hand reaches out from the sea of white blankets in an effort to turn off the source of the incessant racket. But apparently, it was just a dream as eyes of crystal blue were revealed covered in a morning haze. "Ugh... I hate mornings..." Mireya noted with annoyance as she held her head and closed her eyes once more in response. The ringing sound actually was coming from within her skull. She was having a terrible splitting headache which likely resulted from her friendly competition with Quake regarding about alcoholic beverages. "I should have said no..." She said with slight annoyance. In any case, she seemed to be in bed. Although, she was not sure how did she get into one or where she was exactly. One thing is for certain, she can't think straight with the agonizing pounding inside her head. It felt that someone inside her head was drilling a pin in her brain. "Aspirin... I need some..."

"Your awake." Scott said as he sat near her bed, reading some sort of medical-drama book. He closed it as he looked over at her from behind his glasses. "... You are lucky you didn't drag Sebastian with you." He told her. Mireya groggily looked at him and was not sure she got what he meant or if she even got his sentences correct. So, the only response she could have was "What?" Honestly, she can barely comprehend anything even her current condition. "Before we talk, can you give me some painkillers or can I get back to sleep?" She closed her eyes once more and held her head. "I need to get rid of this headache." He threw her a bottle of some. "Take some. You need to get up as soon as you can." She was able to clumsily catch the bottle and drank without much of any hesitation. Her goal was to have her headache gone as quickly as possible. Even if what she drank was poison, it was better to her. It only meant that she won't be having any headaches or migraines forever. After taking the contents of the bottle, she closed her eyes for a brief moment. "What's the hurry?" She asked with an obvious tone of sleepiness as she waited for the drug to take effect.

"You need a trainer - everyone else is being trained..." Scott said while rising up on to his feet. "... You don't have an assigned trainer. So, I'm going to give you one." Mireya opened one of her eyes and looked at him. Her face had this rather uncertain expression. She remembered what happened in the pseudo-trial and being taught to control her abilities are all good. Still, everything around here was going too fast for her liking. She was again being thrown into a loop in the loony bin in her opinion. "You're serious?" The response to her question came instantly without absolute certainty. "Of course I am. People are going to be after you - you also need to learn how to fight. Plus... There's The Extra Child." Opening her eyes fully, she felt the drug finally taking effect. The headache was slowly diminishing and she could begin to comprehend more clearly what was being told of her than earlier. "Extra child?"

"Yes. Originally, there were meant to be seven of you. But then it turned out, there were eight of you. And I know who it is..." Mireya had finally sat on the bed and looked at him curiously as she had stopped holding her head now. The headache had become bearable at this point. "Who would that be?" "You should know... You already met him." She had a thoughtful look for awhile as she enumerated the people she had met quite loudly and even using her fingers to count them. "Well, there are you... that Michael guy, Gabriel angel thingy... and that blonde hair guy and then Sebastian..." Scott raised a brow at this. ".... When did you start linking Angels and Demons as the same? I'm not on about Michael or Gabriel." She shrugged at this. "You said I met... So, I just thought of the people I encountered before which were guys since you say it’s a he..." Rubbing her temples in a circular manner, she closed her eyes for a moment and sighed. The pain may have subsided somehow; still her mental aptitude suffers from her heavy drinking session last night. "Adding to that, I'm not in my best thinking process..."

Scott sighed and walked to the door. "Come along... You can think on the way there." He told her. Mireya sleepily and begrudgingly stood from the bed. Honestly, she would rather sleep this off but judging by Scott’s demeanor, she would conclude that was not possible. She swayed a little bit as the aftereffects of her intoxication were still present. "Walk will be good and maybe some fresh air..." She muttered to no one in particular. Her purple hair fell around her like a curtain, although; they are quite a mess with some strands sticking out. It could also be said to her current attire. After all, she had not changed into some pajamas. Taking note, she smelled of sake. “I need a bath too…” He opened the door and walked out, heading towards Rin's division part of the base. "I must warn you though... Prepare for hell."

Mireya looked at him and smiled confidently. Her concerns about hygiene were forgotten. "I'm supposed to be of the Devil... Enough said, right?" She run her fingers through her hair as she straightened it and followed him. "What of the extra child? I don't see anything to fret about." She asked as an afterthought while fixing herself while walking. Scott sighed at this. "... You seven children have the power to change things as they are. You could either end up destroying heaven, or liberating us of the devil, the one responsible for turning you into what you are now. The Extra Child, however, was naturally born to be a monster. His purpose, if left uncheck, will make him strong enough to become the next devil." While listening, she was able to straighten her clothes to make herself presentable. On a note, she seemed completely unfazed by the information he was giving her. "Sebastian, right?" She nonchalantly asked while looking ahead of her. "What is your definition of a monster exactly?"

Scott raised a brow. "You aren't concerned? And let's see.... A monster is something that has no emotions, has ungodly powers and has a natural habit of destroying everything around it." Mireya looked at him with a completely calm expression. "And you see Sebastian like that?" He shrugged. "No... But I do know the dangers he may cause. I also know we are missing several children." She looked ahead of her again. "How sure are you that he is the extra child? The devil had always been a master of trickery... His spawns should I say can inherit such talents." She then looked at him again. The information about missing people like her was something new to her ears. "How many are we exactly here?"

Scott stopped in front of a door. "I compared his blood to everyone else's. And as of Deon's sentence... Three of the original children are now gone." With that, he slammed the door open. Mireya looked at the site beyond the opened door. It resembled one of those sets in the movies where a prisoner is taken for interrogation. "So, his strain is different." She walked ahead of him and looked over her shoulder. "5 of us huh?" She stood there for a brief moment and then asked him. "What if I become the Devil? Are you going to kill me?" Once more, the answer was spoken with certainty. "That's not possible. So you have nothing to fear... So, behave yourselves now." He said as he quickly slammed the door shut.

"... That ass." A female commented as she looked over at Mireya, but she could only see her eyes. "Name?" She asked. Mireya looked at the closed door with a bored expression. "That man has no imagination..." Upon hearing a female voice, she looked at the source only to see a pair of eyes meeting hers. "Mireya Elea Nightless. You can call me whatever you want within reason." The female rose up as she walked out of the shadows... Looking like a human woman it seemed. "All I heard was blah, blah smack me." She then quickly went to smack Mireya across the face before putting her hands on her hips. "Try that again." Mireya was really stunned at the sudden slap that met her cheek. She looked at the unknown female before her in annoyance and returned the favor without a word. There was no way she would allow anyone to hurt her for no good reason. Her eyes of blue darken with slight irritation. She already had a blazing headache waking her up, then accompanied by that bookworm Scott guy and now this, she would probably go "monster" mode right here, right now.

The female blinked as she was slapped back, her head barely moving as it did. She turned her head back to Mireya, before letting out a loud laugh and giving her a VERY tight hug. “You got balls, kid ~” She commented, not knowing she might be crushing the life out of Mireya. As for the one being hugged, Mireya knew instantly that there was something wrong with the female's head to begin with. However, she was now 100% certain that this woman was crazy or has split personalities along those lines. The female laughed and then gave her a hug that was literally to die for. She fortunately had placed her arms in front of her as to cushion the hug somehow. Still, she could feel her air supply being restricted slowly. "Can't--- bre-athe---" The female stopped as she let go, watching Mireya gasp for breath. "... How the hell are you so weak?" She commented. "You are one of the seven children! Ugh... We have a lot of work to do, kiddo." Mireya finally was able to catch her breath as she was released and glared at the female for calling her weak. "Don't you dare call me weak. You don't know the difference between of a friendly hug and a death hug." She straightened herself and felt a slight ache in her head. "Tsk. Shouldn't have drink..." She muttered under her breath and then sighed.

The female smacked Mireya on the back, which would probably make her nearly fall over. "Come on... We have a lot of work to do. First, I need some of your blood." She said. Mireya almost lost her balance if she did not have tight grip on her footing at the moment and could feel the veins on her forehead beginning to pound. "You don't know the word restrain..." She then looked at the woman incredulously upon hearing the need for blood. "Are you a vampire or something?" The female raised her brows. "I'm not undead, you ass! I might just break yours too for that... Just for that, I'm not telling you. Now just hand over a drop." Mireya raised an eyebrow at the woman's retort. "Who is being so emotional now?" She stared at the woman for a length of time and shrugged her shoulders. "I was just asking." She placed her right index finger near her lips and bit into the skin. Without ado, blood began to pool around the pierced skin. "Here you go." The female quickly took out a piece of paper and had the blood drop on it. "Good. Now heal yourself or something, I don't know." She said as she walked away and got out what looked like a scroll of sorts, putting the piece of paper on it, the blood slide down onto it.

Mireya shook her head and then just simply licked the remaining blood. The wound was not that deep and soon the wound closed on its own without any interference. "What’s that?" She looked at the scroll curiously now brandishing her blood. It made her wonder if had some invisible ink that needs blood to appear. Somehow, she feels it was becoming more of a cartoon than a sci-fi film. The female got on her knees and sat down on her legs as she watched the paper sink in and writing made out of blood in cursive. "Why don't you sit next to me and find out? Unless you’re scared I'm going to break you again?" She gave a confident smirk at her, challenging her. Mireya could feel the blood rushing to her head but it was not because of romantic reasons. It was due to being irritated so early in the day. "Hell no." She said with a flat tone and a tint of annoyance as she approached the female and sat beside her to look at the scroll. The female smirked at this. "Hah. So the rumors of you with Quake were true - whatever..." She said as she quickly closed the scroll again, only to open it as now six spots with cursive blood writing could be seen on it. "Here are your abilities. How do you want the order - major to minor, or minor to major?" She asked, glancing over at Mireya. "You know Quake?" Mireya asked curiously as the woman closed the scroll and when it was opened again there were cursive writings on it. The female laughed at this. "Of course I know her! She's one of the best people who was in the Rogue's Division! Now I hear from Scott she's being promoted! HAH!" She said as she sighed out. Mireya listened yet was not keen on the conversation as she was reading the contents of the scroll and did not even look at the female who asked her which way she wanted it to be read.

Mireya Elea Nightless' Demonic Power Results

Combat Specialist

Barrier Master

Plant Mistress

Forecaster

Kiss of Death

Touch of Heaven


"Major to minor, I guess..." Mireya answered offhandedly still looking at the scroll. "Okay... Here we go." She said. "Forecaster. Manipulation over weather. Barrier Master. Touch of Heaven. Your healing power. Combat Specialist. Kiss of Death. The power to steal life. Plant Mistress. Manipulation over Plants." Mireya listened to as the female spoke her listed abilities. She now understood why people die when she kisses them, hear the thoughts of plants, or healed Sebastian earlier. "These are my abilities?" She asked to no one in particular as her voice was obvious for the presence of disbelief. It was then she looked at the female beside her. "Who are you? What's your name?" The female looked over at her and raised her brows as she closed the scroll. "And I have reason to tell you this, how...?" Mireya stood and looked at the female casually. "I can't keep calling you. hey, oi, woman, female, or she-man. Do I?" Crossing her arms in front of her chest, she closed her eyes. "Adding that, you will train me with these so-called abilities of mine." She opened her eyes to emphasize a point. "And there is no way, I'm going to call you master or any of those titles."

The female smirked at this as she stood up and shrugged her shoulders. "You are something else... Fine. Call me S. That's all you need to know for now... Be careful though, I might end up hurting you in more than one way. So, you still up for my training or are you going to run with your tail between your legs?" Mireya narrowed her eyes at her. "S. I never run." She delivered that statement with complete confidence and an eerie sense of pride. "Bring it on." It was now accompanied by a confident smirked as her eyes of blue with determination. The female slapped her on the back at this. "Good! Don't pussy out on me!" Mireya almost fell flat to the floor but she had managed to maintain her balance and then glared at S. "I should explain to you the meaning of restraint, if we are going to have this trainer-trainee relationship." She noted and wondered inwardly what would be waiting for her.



"I am the Archduchess of the Wastelands. Don't you dare..."

Saulkur wondered through the place connecting two towers together, entering the next one as he found himself climbing up stairs again. "Good lord." He commented to himself at this as he made his way up further towards the top. "How many towers does this woman have to put up? I swear..." He said as he finally stopped at the top level, looking around as he saw a few doors. "Now... Where is her personal chambers or whatever the crap she calls it?" He said as he walked forward a bit. "What do you mean?" Elegia appeared right behind him with a raised eyebrow and a playful smirk on her lips. "Do you want to see me in bed that much?" She spoke that part by whispering in his ear similar to what a lover would do. Saulkur flinched as he turned around and looked at her, glaring at her as he snarled a bit. "The hell I would..." He retorted to her. "And for the matter... You probably wouldn't even do it any way for me." He said as he crossed his arms over his chest. "Aren't we touchy?" Elegia released a light giggle at his reaction. "Don't make it about me..." She leaned closed to him. "You're just too much of a coward to admit it." Smirking, she stepped back and crossed her arms over her chest. "Anyway, what do you want with me?"

Saulkur felt his eye twitch a little at this as he was just tempted to throw her... But he knew better. He had been raised better, besides... He liked her. He sighed out at this. ".... I came to say... T-thanks and all that." Elegia tilted her head to the side while looking at him for a moment of silence. Then, she gave a bright and sweet smile which was quite rare for anyone else to see. "You're welcome." But it soon disappeared as she returned to her infamous demeanor. "So, that is all you want from me? How disappointing." She released sigh while shaking her head. Saulkur felt his eye twitch a little more. ".... What?" He asked in a low deep tone. "You heard me." Elegia gave him a sly smile while leaning on the nearby wall behind her. "Or, have you gone deaf too?" She looked at him with disappointment and with a condescending tone as well. Saulkur walked towards her at this, stopping in front of her as he looked her dead in the eyes. "..... I came to ask how you do it.... You know... Act human and normal and all that?" He asked, obviously enraged.

"So, you want to learn from me?" Elegia looked at him with slight surprise. "So why are you so mad while you're the one asking a favor?" She met his gaze firmly. Saulkur felt his eye twitch again as he closed his eyes for a moment. "........ Nothing." Elegia find this reaction of his quite entertaining and funny. "You should speak now or forever hold your peace." She had a mischievous glint in her eyes as she flicked him on the forehead. "Anything to say before starting the lessons?" Saulkur opened his eyes and sighed. ".... The teasing.... Why is it needed? And why do you act like my superior all the damn time?" Elegia shrugged her shoulders. "Because I am." She said in a matter-of-fact tone. "In addition, it is fun teasing you." Pointing at him, she had a bright smile. "Aren't you my toy?" Saulkur felt his eyes widen at this. "T-TOY??!?!?!" Elegia nodded with much confidence. "Absolutely. I told you to kiss me and then you do so." She said with a smile while tapping his lips and then touching hers. "I always play with you all the time. You are such a good toy." She wrapped her arms around his neck and winked. Saulkur felt his teeth gritting at this as he felt she was mocking him. "T-T-T-T-T-T-T-Toy....? Toy....?!"

Elegia smiled happily. "Yes." She leaned her face closed to him that their lips were only a hair breath's away. "See, if I told you to kiss me you will just like last time." She looked at him mockingly. "Kiss me. Go ahead if you dare." Saulkur finally felt insulted enough. She was making fun of how he kissed her.... Well, he could kiss damn well fine! He wrapped his arms around her and pinned her back to the wall, pinning her head against it as well as she felt him begin to wildly kiss her. This was the second time that Elegia was taken surprised. Her eyes widened at the nature of his kiss. She had thought that he would just cower and just go silent like most of the times. Why was this happening and again? She removed her arms around his neck and placed it on his chest as she began pushing him away from her. Because at this moment, she could feel all of her blood rushing to her head. Saulkur grabbed her hands and pinned them to the wall, continuing to kiss her as he pressed his body up against hers, holding her against the wall as he kept it up this time. He was fully intent on making her pay for her insults. Elegia was surprised at that. She knew for a fact that when it comes to physical strength he was far stronger than her. However, she did not want to show him that he was getting to her. She resisted him and fought his hold on her. Even her words were getting muffled by his forceful kiss thus, she bit his lip to let her go.

Saulkur tightened his hold on her wrists by just a little bit, moving away from her lips quickly as she bit him briefly before she found him moving to the right side of her neck. She felt his lips just going place after place. "Stop it, Saulkur!" Elegia managed to say as he left her lips. She was really now flushed much like tomato. "Saulkur, stop it..." After about thirty seconds of this though, his lips went right back on hers. Tightly closing her lips, she could feel a moan almost coming out as she was able to stop it. But then, he returned kissing her and she continued fighting his hold. She would never beg or cry in front of him even when she was feeling that or the rather hot emotions flooding her due to his kisses. Saulkur chuckled on the inside at her pleas. He was getting to her - now to take it all the way home. He left her lips again to kiss the other side of her neck, doing it in several places before finding his way back to her lips, this time adding in a bit... 'More', to the kiss, she could feel the action happening all inside her mouth.

Closing her eyes, Elegia kept bottling her emotions. His kisses continued to be more forceful. She knew that there was something wrong with her senses at the moment. It is because she was gradually losing her grip on them. This was all new to her. Adding to that, it was a matter of pride to her. She would not let him hear a moan or even saying the word please. However, the next time he placed his lips on hers. There was something moving inside her mouth. Her eyes opened in shocked. Saulkur kept this up for a few before pulling his lips away and kissing the right side of her neck again, his arms letting go of her wrists and wrapping around her arms and back as he held her gently to him, rubbing her back gently as he wanted her to submit. To finally beg for him. To, perhaps in showing defeat, return the next kiss. "Saulkur." Elegia managed to say as he left her lips. She seemed so breathless. Her face was flushed and her eyes of blue was hazed by something she was truly ignorant about. At the same time, her breathing was a bit ragged. He finally released her and she felt relief but when he embraced her this time. "Are you done?" She managed to say clinging to her pride although, it was slightly unbelievable due to her current appearance. Saulkur glared at her as he was willing to let her body lean on his, but she wasn't giving in?!? He narrowed his eyes. "Almost." He stated, before then kissing her one more, he wanted a sign... ONE sign that she was giving in to him at last.

Elegia was then again placed into a heady kiss by him. She was not sure anymore what to do along with the tight gripped on her pride and at the same time about her confusing feelings that were slowly diminishing. Then, there it was a very subtle moan erupting from her despite how hard she tried to keep it away. Saulkur blinked at this as he slowly pulled his lips away from hers. ".... Did you just...?" He knew it was teasing in his mind, but on the outside, he appeared confused to her. Elegia knew what she had done and quickly covered her lips. She showed a weakness to him even if it was just for a short while. It was still a show of fragility in her part. She felt so embarrassed by it as she pushed him away from her without doubt. "Don't come for lessons to me!" She said in a rather loud voice as she headed for the safety of her bedroom. Saulkur blinked at this... "E-ELEGIA! Wait!" He cried out, rushing after her, but found himself tripping as he landed flat on his face. Not looking back, Elegia remained covering her lips as she finally entered her bedroom and made sure the doors were completely locked. After doing so, she leaned on the door and slowly fell to the floor. "What just happened to me...?" She embraced her knees closed to her while she buried her face in it. "It's his fault... not mine..."

~ Bellfoar VS Ronald! ~

Bellfoar felt himself slide back as he stopped himself. He gritted his teeth as he looked forward at his opponent, who stood ready for another exchange in blows, Ronald aimed his sword at him. "Stand, demon!" He shouted out with anger for the demon, it was obvious he had been trained to hate demons even from just looking at them. Bellfoar rose up quickly from his knees at this, Ronald responding by charging in quickly again. Bellfoar sent in a quick lightning bolt at him, to which Ronald responded by dashing to the side from. Ronald then leaped and sent his sword down for Bellfoar's head, Bellfoar moving back with quicker speed as he reappeared a few feet away. "Stand still, demon!" Ronald cried out, charging in once more as Bellfoar furrowed his brows and stomped his foot on the ground. On his feet appeared two boots, both of which began to glow brightly. Ronald stopped himself as he recognized them. "The Speed Boots?! But, how --" He was stopped by Bellfoar calling out. "SPEED ON!" He shouted, and with that, he was gone. Ronald was suddenly hit in the stomach by one of Bellfoar's feet, which sent Ronald flying back. Stumbling across the ground, he finally stopped when he slide across the ground and was left lying there. "You are lucky I held back... Now... What will you do now?" He asked, but before he could go on, a mysterious figure in a cloak appeared between the two.

~ Chill and The Jello Demon VS Timothy! ~

Chill found himself get hit by a kick as he stumbled back, while The Jello Demon aimed an attack for Timothy's head, but failed when he was knocked away. Jello rolled across the ground for a bit before stopping and began to get up. "Damn it all..." He mumbled, raising himself up as he shook his head. "Who is this guy?" He asked, as the man approached them both. Timothy stood there with a death glare that was suited for an assassin. Timothy then raced forward and appeared in front of the two, kicking them both in the stomach as Timothy used this to hurl himself back. He then landed on his feet as the two stumbled again, allowing him to race forward at this. Jello and Ice were sent flying at him, but he quickly moved to the side of this and pulled out a pole, spinning it in his hands as he spun himself around and smacked the two with it across they're faces. Then he used it to break the Jello Demon in half, then spinning it around in his hands to slam one end of it into Chill's chin and send him flying on to his back. "Hmph... This isn't worth my time." Timothy stated, as a mysterious figure appeared before him. "It's time to go, sir." The figure responded, holding an unconscious Ronald over one arm. "Very well..." Timothy said, and as The Jello Demon and Chill got to they're feet, they saw the two vanish.

~ Yami VS Sir Melvin! ~

Sir Melvin watched as Yami kept appearing and vanishing before him, as if the darkness demon were taunting him to strike first. "Do not mock me, you ignorant thing!" Melvin shouted out as he sent out three chains towards Yami. Before they could get him, he vanished again, the chains wrapping around only air as they fell to the ground. Yami then appeared in front of him and kicked towards his face, but Melvin blocked it with his right arm, holding off the demon with it as he did. A mini-shock wave happened as the two collided, Yami kicked off of Melvin and gracefully landing on his feet, spreading his arms out as two shadow balls appeared in front of him. Melvin readied himself as Yami threw both at him, to which Melvin spun around and sliced through both dark balls, making them dissolve. Yami charged forward at him and began sending a barrage of punches and kicks towards him, each time Melvin was able to block each blow that was sent at him, both of them creating shock waves with each collision they made with each other. Finally, it seemed the demon Yami had enough of it and leaped back, pulling on two gloves as darkness formed around him. "Ah, a demon's own invention to power himself up... Heh, try me!" Melvin shouted out with confidence, meanwhile Yami was forming darkness around Melvin.

Yami then clapped his hands together as a tornado of shadows suddenly formed around Melvin, making wind be blasted into him from this as the darkness became more and more harder to see through until it was completely dark. Then, it formed from a tornado into a ball that was around Melvin's size, keeping him trapped in it as Yami smirked upon seeing this. But then, cracks of light formed on the ball as a sword pierced through it, cutting it in half as it dissolved away, the light fading just as Melvin's form could be seen. Yami felt his eyebrows colliding with one another as he dashed forward, Melvin responding by doing the same. They both collided with each other, fists meeting sword as the ground around them began to shake from the collision. Then, after one minute they both leaped back and landed on they're feet as they stared each other down. Then, the mysterious figure appeared at Melvin's side. "Sir, it is time to go." He commented while holding the unconscious Ronald over his shoulder. "Hold on a minute while I --" He stopped when looking forward, to find the demon Yami having vanished. "... Ugh, very well. Let us go." He said, and the two then left the scene, they're missions done.

~ S VS Mireya, part one?! ~

S stood ready at one side of the room, her arms were folded across her chest as she watched Mireya. "Well? If your going to learn how to use your abilities, attack me already. Or do you want a kiss first?" She teased, aiming to piss her off. Mireya glared at her and could feel her eyes twitched. "Kiss me and you're dead." She retorted at her while wondering how would she attack S. It was already much proven that S was more physically stronger than her. It was not like she could punch her or anything like that. "How could I attack you when I don't how to use them in the first place? Shouldn't you teach me like concentrate or something along those lines?" S yawned a little at this. "You apparently know how to use that kiss... You just need to do something similar with the rest. Like, I don't know... I'm not one of the Devil's 'chosen ones' or anything. So until you can transform... I'm just going to have to beat it out of you." Mireya released a sigh at this. "My kiss has no off switch. Even if, I don't want to use it." She pointed at her lips. "It still works." She then had a rather disbelieving look on her face. "Beat me? Really now? Moreover, I am just new with this devil thingy."

S laughed. "You obviously can't beat me... You're just too pathetic, too weak... Besides, your kiss does have an off switch... It just has more power over you then you do over it." "Thank you for pointing that out." Mireya sarcastically said while still glaring at S for laughing. "Pathetic? Weak?" She could feel her patience wearing thin. "I told you not call me that!" S shrugged. "What's wrong? Can't handle a girl?" She teased again. "You're not a girl at all." Mireya said in a deadpanned voice. She could feel the pain of her headache crawling back in. "Tell me why Scott chose you as my trainer." She noted while rubbing the bridge of her nose. S smirked. "Because you can't handle my challenges. Can you, little girl? Come on, you can't beat me. Not a chance, not a chance~" She wagged a finger at her. Mireya crossed her arms over her chest. "Are you even a challenge to begin with?" S got a serious face for a moment before punching the wall behind her, making a dent appear in it as several large cracks came across the dent. Mireya whistled at S' little show. She raised an eyebrow at this. "That supposed to scare me then?" She smirked at this. "Why not attack me instead?" She then had a thoughtful look. "Or are you the one who is really afraid?" S rose her right foot at this as she stomped on the ground, making the entire room start to shake rapidly at this. Then, a crack started to appear on the ground of the room as it quickly began to head towards Mireya's position whilst the room's floor began to split in two. Mireya was startled at this as she slightly wobbled and then, she noticed the crack approaching her position and subsequently the room splitting apart. She stepped to the side avoiding the crack directly.

S crossed her arms over her chest at this. "You were saying?" She asked, before grabbing both ends of the room and slamming them together, the gap becoming a crack, and the crack vanishing as the floor was suddenly repaired. "... This is a special room for a good reason. It allows you to use your powers without any consequence, well, except to the people around you... You still want to try me then?" Mireya straightened herself and run her fingers through her hair. "You're a coward." She looked at S haughtily. "That is what I am saying." She stretched her arms upwards and the tilted her head to the side. "Come. Let me see you can do to me. All you did is just play with the room. Nothing impressive." S sighed and quickly ran in front of her, then stopped as she pulled back her fist and aimed to punch Mireya in the gut. Blue eyes began to darken as Mireya caught the fist with her hand and then delivered a blow with her elbow with the other arm towards the back of S' neck. S smiled at she let it hit her, but barely moved as Mireya could feel her own hand shaking just from catching the blow... "Not bad, not bad! I see the scroll was right after all about that whole specialist crap..." She then kicked at Mireya's arm to knock it away from her fist. "Come on, I'll let you have this one for free. Hit me!" Mireya looked at her hand and she felt the strength of the punch directed at her. It was clear that she was not that physically apt in that department. Looking at S once more, she stepped back after her arm was kicked. She subsequently delivered a roundhouse kick to S' face. S closed her eyes as the foot hit her cheek, being held in place against her body as she looked at Mireya. To her, she felt like a wall of steel. "That's it?" She asked, grabbing her leg. "You may look slim and all, but in reality, your just paper~" She then aimed to slam her elbow down on her leg.

It was then a seemingly invisible field surrounded Mireya's leg to meet with the incoming elbow. The effect would be to return the amount of force that it had received to the one who hit it in the first place. S rose a brow as she felt it, chuckling a little as she shook her arm off. "What was that? The barrier thing I assume?" She shook her head a little at this. "... Your getting closer, but not close enough. Your barriers can't last forever..." Mireya retracted her leg and was also surprised at that sudden appearance of the field. Her blue eyes seemed not only to darken further but appear to be in some sort of a haze. She narrowed her eyes at this and the she felt the so-called barrier disappear around her leg. After that, she attacked once S once more this time with a chain of punches and kicks. S watched as she was hitting her with punches and kicks as she blinked at this. ".... Um... I didn't know you were into me so soon." She said as she then knocked away one of her arms and then grabbed her by the face. "Come along then!" She shouted, before raising her off her feet and throwing her at a wall. Before colliding with the wall, the barrier surrounded Mireya in protection. it cushioned her momentum as such, she stood looking at S while the barrier dissipated. "Aren't you irritated?" There was this voice that echoed in her mind. It has a familiarity to it. "Go ahead... Like at that time..." She shook her head as if trying to remove the voice. "Shut up" She retorted. "Just like before..." Her eyes widened as she felt emotions of hatred and depression fill. The atmosphere within the room differ and the temperature began to drop rapidly to an absolute zero. S watched with a risen brow at this. "Oh? What's all this suddenly...? Maybe you're finally coming out of the closet?" She taunted.

Mireya held her head as if in pain. The ceiling of the room begin to be filled with looming dark clouds as crackles of thunder and gleaming lightning peeked behind it. "At least... when you're angry... the world is angry as well..." The voice continued to haunt her. S' words were drowned by it. "I said shut the hell up!" She yelled as lightning begin to dance all around them and wind out of nowhere filled the room in a torrent. S stood in place as the light show began, watching Mireya as she merely blinked at this. "... Well now.... Looks like we're halfway through, aren't we?" She said with a smile. "This time... you won't kill an innocent..." Upon hearing those words in her head, a raging storm was now present within the room. Mireya's position was the only part that was not affected by the sudden weather tempest in the room. The floor surrounding her began to be lifted as vines began growing around her. S blinked at this as she saw plant-life begin to grow. "I guess that means we only have one more left to control, don't we?" She smirked, crossing her arms across her chest. "... Come on then. You've almost got them all unlocked - just focus. Come on, I'm waiting for you to give me your best shot!!" The plants growing began to stop upon reaching the ceiling. The flowers at its tip began to bloom. Instead of beautiful bloom, it resembled a Venus flytrap with its fangs all directed at S. Mireya slowly removed her hands from her head and then looked at S with eyes that were in complete trance. "Feed." It was said in a whisper but it was enough for the plants to attack S. At the same time, she closed her eyes as the lightning now aimed to hit S as well. S watched the two come for her as she moved to the side and kicked the plants in the way of the lightning, looking over at the Venus flytrap's head as she leapt up and landed on the plants, snapping them almost all the way off. She then grabbed the Venus flytrap's neck part and goes to snap it before then tearing it off and throwing it onto the ground. "You've lost control, haven't you? Pathetic, Mireya... I thought you had it more in you then that."

Mireya looked at S and then smiled. It was so empty that it resembled a corpse. A barrier surrounded S as it locked her up in a small bubble. At the same time, the torn plant heads' regenerated. As for her, she raised her right hand upwards as lightning began to gather around it. "Thank you." It was then the concentrated power she gathered aimed at S. The plants heads' directed at S as well. Then, it was released not to cripple but to kill. S smiled at this. "I did say... Your barrier can't last forever." At this, time seemed to slow down as S concentrated, energy building up inside her body as she held her arms across her. Then, thrusting them out, a large shock-wave was sent out as the barrier was destroyed and a light appeared around S now. "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" S' scream could be heard throughout the entire room as if echoing, the plants around her shirevling up as the clouds would part. Then once she was done, she collapsed to a knee, still smirking as she tilted her hat down a bit. Mireya had a disinterest look on her face as the wind gathered underneath her feet. Lightning circled around her as she approached S and then delivered a blow to S' face. This time powered by a tornado and enhanced by lightning. It was released resembling a shotgun as the trail it left carved the floor in half. The room shook as well at the force being released. S smirked as she raised her right arm up in a block, letting it get hit instead as she stood up after it hit, letting out a loud laugh. ".... Hey Mireya, what rhymes with pain?" She asked with a smirk, even though her arm was numb.

Mireya did not respond as she simply grabbed S by her neck. This time it was easy as her strength seemed to be enhanced. She raised S in a choke hold and those eyes remained vacant. S whistled at this as she felt her choking her. "He-llo~" She said as she grabbed a hold of her arm with her good hand at this. "Gain?" She then thrusted her knee at Mireya's gut, aiming to knock the wind out of her and send her flying into a wall. Mireya felt that connect with her gut but, she didn't relinquish her hold on S. Instead, she flew to the wall with S tagging along. She really felt the strength behind the thrust but the barrier cushioned the blow and at the same time the wind current soften it as well. She then punched S to the face with another force similar to the earlier she released. S closed her eyes as she felt herself move faster then before, vanishing from sight as she appears a distance away from Mireya at this. ".... Ah, now this isn't fun anymore. Now... Well, it's pointless to keep trying, so..." She opens her eyes and looks at Mireya. "Ah, just do what you want. I don't care any more... It's not fun when your own ally is trying to kill you." "Ally, who told you were mine." Mireya took back the force she released and directed it to the ceiling blowing it up in the process. The huge explosion caused a lot of dusts. She then ran her fingers through her hair again. S sighed out. "Oh shut up.... I was talking to Mireya, not whatever the bloody fuck you are." She said as she fixed her hat a little at this.

"And what makes you think, I'm not Mireya?" Eyes of blue remained in a haze as Mireya raised her hands in front of her and lightning touched each fingertips. S smiled a little. "You want to kill.... Your eyes say everything. So what, you going to beat me to death or what?" Mireya pointed her charged fingertips at her own neck. "Let's activate the other two skills simultaneously, shall we?" S blinked at this. "And those would be...?" She asked. "Death and Life." Mireya smiled with such an empty visage. With that done, she fired all the charged lightning fingertips at herself and the explosion covered her. S stood there as she sighed out. ".... So..... Tell me. Miss M.... Do you want to see me at full power?" When the explosion cleared off, Mireya laid on the ground bleeding now to death. S looked at her as she saw her lying there. "......... Da fuck?" Was all she could get out. Mireya was getting paler every second. Her body was broken and even some of the bones were sticking out of her skin. The heartbeat was slowly coming to a stop. S walked over towards her slowly as she knelt down beside her and rolled her on to her back. "..... I don't get it." Was all she could say.

Mireya slowly opened her eyes and instinctively grabbed onto S. Her lips met hers and the transfer of life began as the wounds began to regenerate. As for S, she was being drained of her own life as some of her cells began to degenerate from the sudden pull. When Mireya was satisfied, she removed her lips from S. "Thank you once more." She was back to good condition as if nothing happened. However, the same could not be said to S as it only left a fragment of a life-force in her judging the life-threatening wounds Mireya had. The rate of exchange was equal. S blinked as she did this and flushed a little as she felt her life force being drained. Once Mieya was in seemingly perfect condition, S smirked as she began chuckling of all things. "Oi.... I didn't say.... We could KISS YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" She shouted out as suddenly, her power began to skyrocket. Her life-force was suddenly returned to her as her ears became more pointy and her eyes changed to almost snake-like. "..... Fine.... Now we're on even terms..... Witness my -- Demon Form." And at this, her appearance became more beautiful. Her hair was longer, her skin looked smoother, her charm seemed to have increased beyond that of any human woman's and her eyes just seemed to sparkle. S smirked despite all these changes as she tilted her hat again, two bat-like wings ripping out of her back. Mireya could tell S was now in a whole different league. ".... Allow me to introduce myself properly. I'm Succubus, one of the Demon Division's most well known fighters. I have a severe rivalry with Quake and Rin and I love to tease any one I please...." Mireya stood up and ran her fingers through her hair. She stretched her arms upward and bend her body sideways as well. Her eyes were still dimly haze then looked at S. "I guessed that part."

S chuckled a little. "Thanks for the kiss though... It really inspired me...." She teased, taking a step forward, and despite the room having healed at this point, the room was suddenly filled with an IMMENSE pressure that caused it to shake and nearly fall apart. ".... Sorry that I'm only at 50% full power in this form, I would be at my full strength, but, well.... That kiss blew me away." She said as she stretched out her wings. ".... Got a transformation or should I proceed with the ass-kicking now?" "Transforming is not an option." Mireya said in a matter-of-fact tone. There was not even room for arguments or anything else. Her eyes looked at the ceiling which she had blown up. S suddenly vanished from sight and appeared behind Mireya. "Over here, sweet lips~" She whispered into her ear before suddenly ramming her knee into Mireya's back. The collision would of caused the ground to form a small crater underneath them, it was clear S' strength was tremendous now - equal to that of an Oni's even. Mireya felt the blow but the barrier once more halved the strength of it to her body. Still, it made her fall to her knees. S looked over at Mireya as she fell on her knees. "Well? You wanted a fight - you got one!" Mireya looked at S without even a tinge of emotion or something that could say she was bothered by the demon form or such. Instead, she stood up and dusted her clothes as if nothing was wrong. "Will this be to the death, or are you just going to be my toy?"

S furrowed her brows at this, and sent her fist towards Mireya's stomach. She intended to knock her out. Mireya bent her body forward as if to appear that she had been directly hit. However, she grabbed the fist with one hand and slowly stood properly before S. "Answer." Her grip on the fist tightened as a something invisible around Mireya began to be apparent. Eyes of blue darken further but now glowed menacingly. S furrowed her brows as she kicked her arm away and then proceeded to punch at the barrier with two fists this time. Mireya flippantly looked at the arm that was kicked by S. The seemingly invisible force around her began to be tangible as it seemed to be her powers leaking like tentacles. They hit the ceiling, walls, and floors leaving gaping craters while the ceiling were blown as the skies from outside could be seen clearly. Her body seemed to be surrounded by something. Grabbing both fists, she bent them without much effort wanting to break them. S gritted her teeth at this. ".... Fuck it."

She then concentrated as she released energy again like before - only this time it had a more tremendous effect in the room. Mireya was unswayed by the action and soon enough, she was surrounded by a translucent light. Her gripped on S' fists remained. After a few minutes, she threw S towards the wall like a rag-doll. As the light that encased Mireya began to unravel someone else. S slammed her feet on the wall as she got down on her feet and sighed out. "...." Mireya looked at S with the darken blue eyes which had regained its bright quality once more. There was also a confident smile present on her lips as she stood there with a raised brow. "Warm up is done right, S?" She was completely in a different form. Her purple hair were braided into long twin-tails and black with cross buttons adorned her hair. She wore a body-fitting attire that seemed to be reminiscent of those cyber costumes.

~ Sebastian's training! ~

Sebastian looked at the ice and walked over to it, putting his hands out facing it. Nothing happened though. He blinked and waited a few more seconds, before thrusting his hands out again. "OH MAGICAL POWERS! COME UNTO ME!" He shouted out, but felt dumb after saying that out loud. He focused as he closed his eyes, gritting his teeth as he tried, but only felt a fart come out. He flushed and collapsed, twitching a little on the ground after doing this. He got up and after a few minutes, rubbed his hands together and focused on the emotion of hate. "Hate.... Hate..." He said to himself, focusing on the ice cube, but then felt a yawn come out. ".... No, NO! I don't want to do that... Come on!" He then slammed his hands on the ice cube. "HATE! HATE! HATE! HAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" He shouted out at this, and a miracle happened. An aura of radiation heat surrounded him and rapidly began to melt the ice cube, but he was too far into the power to notice. He gritted his teeth as the heat radiation increased until it bursted and then vanished! He felt himself stagger back and lean against a wall, gasping for air as a burnt spot was left where he formerly stood, the wood of fire was blazing with fire as he collapsed near it. "... I prefer cold right now."

Of course, given how quickly Sebastian had achieved his task, Claire was still absent with Ash. In fact, the only person around was Kane, who was taking the time to refill his glass after another less then gracious fall. Sebastian felt his eyes roll as he shook his head and sat up. He looked around him as he shot his arms up into the air. Of course, given how quickly Sebastian had achieved his task, Claire was still absent with Ash. In fact, the only person around was Kane, who was taking the time to refill his glass after another less then gracious fall. Sebastian felt his eyes roll as he shook his head and sat up. He looked around him as he shot his arms up into the air. "I did it! I did it, ha ha h -- WHA?!" And then, Kane would hear the idiotic screams of Sebastian as he started running around like an idiot while his butt was smoking. "WHA, WHA, WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY ASS IS ON FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Looking over to Sebastian, Kane was quick to hurry over with his glass, chucking the water straight at his rear in the hopes of extinguishing the flame. Sebastian felt the liquid hit him as he collapsed and rolled around in circles like an idiot. He soon got up and sighed out in relief. "That's all good no --" He stopped as the fire from the log began to spread somehow. He must of let out more then he hoped for! "........ FIIIIIREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" "Quick! Grab the water cooler!" Running over to the dispenser he'd been using for his training, Kane began wrenching off the bottle on top. "FEAR NOT, YOUNG ONES!" A large demon in a suit that hid his face arrived, bringing out a large fire extinguisher as he did. "I HAVE SENSED THE DANGER! AND I AM HERE TO EXTINGUISH THE SOURCE!" "W-W-W-WAIT, THAT THING WILL --" "QUIET, YOUNG LAD! NOW, LET THE AWESOME MIGHT OF THE CAPTIAN OF THE BLASTER BOYS TAKE CARE OF THIS!" "KAANNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Kane turned, just as he managed to pull the large bottle free, carrying it towards the fire. "FIIIIIIRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!" And then, everything went wrong. The fire extinguisher blasted out some powerful force into Kane and Sebastian, sending poor Sebastian flying away into a wall as the suited demon holding it was seen flying all over the room with it. Then after several minutes, he landed and acted as if the incident was totally normal to him. "Another job done! If I had been here a few minutes earlier, you both would of been totally screwed!" And with that, he departed. Sebastian collapsed and his body rolled over to the now empty burnt spot with the charred remains of the burning wood near him. It took him a few minutes to regain his thoughts. "..... That reward better be worth it. Kane?!?"

Dazed and upside down, water the bottle from the water dispenser was embedded into the wall, liquid trickling out and drenching Kane underneath it. Sebastian sat up as he moved his hand in front of his face, trying to see clearly. "Kane?!" He called again, doing his best to try and stand, but failed and only ended up sitting up as everything began to clear up. "At least you get a reward..." Kane mumbled as he began to reorient himself, sitting up and wiping the foam from around him. Sebastian brushed himself off as he looked over to where he heard the mumbling. "You met her before I did! How the heck are you complaining of all times!?!" "I guess you're right. Still, She's probably going to be pretty mad if she comes back to see this..." Scratching his head, Kane looked over the mess they'd made. Sebastian sighed and sat down with his legs crossed at this, clapping his hands together as he closed his eyes. "Stand back." He said and increased the head radiation around him. The foam slowly began to fade around them, but it was taking time this time. A few minutes passed by and it was still slowly going away, while Sebastian was starting to sweatdrop like mad.

Kane watched in partial amazement, and a little envy. Sebastian already seemed to have mastered his task, while he doubted he'd be able to take a few steps without dropping the glass. Sebastian concentrated harder... And this is where Kane began to see Sebastian's lack of control. The ground underneath him began to form a burnt spot, just like the one from before. "W-whoa whoa! Watch it! Don't start burning things again!" Sebastian quickly stopped the burn stop at his words, but steam was beginning to emit from his body at this... "Uh, Sebastian-" Kane was really getting worried now, and contemplated running to get Claire. Sebastian opened his eyes as the last of the foam vanished - he gasped for air and fell on his back. ".... Water." He managed to strain out. "What? Oh, uh, right!" Running back over to the cooler embedded into the wall, Kane managed to prise it free before returning to Sebastian, holding it steady for him to drink from. Sebastian opened an eye at him. ".... Just pour it on me." Nodding, Kane dunked the last of the water over Sebastian's head. Sebastian coughed at this as he sat up and held out an arm towards Kane.

Reaching down, Kane decided to help him up. Sebastian felt himself get up to his feet and sigh out. "...T-thanks.... S-she better get here...." "Well, I can't say I expected you to nearly burn down the place. She's probably doing some special training with Ash." Kane concluded, looking to the double door the two had gone through earlier. Sebastian collapsed again at this. "Whoah, hey, easy there. Need me to take you to the medical wing again?" Sebastian sighed out. ".... Just tell me when she gets here...." At that, there was a loud thud against the double doors, a huge dent mark present. Sebastian glanced over towards it. "..... Another break in?" He mumbled. Drawing his sword, Kane remained focused on the door, but no other sounds were heard... Sebastian tried to sit up again at this. ".... Should you open it?" "Me?" Kane blinked, looking it over. "Claire did say not to open it under any circumstances..." He added, clearly uncertain. Sebastian glared. "And if she's dying?" He asked. "Uhh... Wouldn't she um... Open the door if they were in trouble?" Sebastian rose a brow. "It might be locked on they're side." "Arrgh! Alright, we're in this together, yeah? If I open it, it was a joint decision... Right?" Sebastian sighed. "Yes, yes.... Now do it!" Nervously swallowing, Kane gripped the handles, and... "Aw man I can't do it!" Kane chickened out, letting go and stepping back from the door.

Sebastian quickly got up at this and stomped toward it. "For the love of.... Fine, you big sissy! I'll do it!" And with that, Sebastian quickly grabbed the handles and went to open the doors. As the doors spread wide, Sebastian had only a moment to react as a streak of light shot towards him, a beam of energy rippling with power. Sebastian felt his eyes widen as he underwent his super speed, grabbing Kane and having him stay behind one of the doors. "..... Da hell was that?" He asked. With the doors now open, the intense sounds of battle echoed throughout the hall, impacts, explosions, clashes... Sebastian listened to them as he felt his eyebrows raise slowly at this, looking over at Kane. "Maybe we should close it." Kane was looking to here the laser had impacted, a deep singed mark on the wall... Sebastian looked at him. "Screw that..." He said as he walked over to one of the doors and looked over it to try to see the action going on in it. Inside, he could catch the slightest glimpse of Ash, a dark aura surrounding her as she locked blades with Claire, her sister holding a brilliant sword of light in the clash as they fought for superiority. Sebastian felt his eyes widen as he looked over at Kane. "Jesus.. They're fighting with swords.... And they both have auras." Slowly, cautiously, Kane peeked his head out to watch, just in time to see the two girl's separate. Ash reacted first, waving her hand as coiling shadows rose up from the floor, chasing down the running Claire and attempting to ensnare her legs. Leaping, the psychic-femmefatal dived towards the wall, but not before firing off another beam of energy at Ash. Swiftly, Ash's Hair moved, swirling in front of her to block and deflect the beam, glancing to where Claire had fled to.

In the split second Ash had been distracted, Claire had closed in behind her, charging up energy in her hands and reaching round for a hard shove to her back, the impact causing a rippling explosion that sent Ash into the far wall. Sebastian looked at him. "... I think we should close it before they notice." At those words, a sharp meow sounded behind Sebastian. Sebastian looked over to see what it was. ".... A cat?" He asked. Noir sat behind the two, snickering a little. Sharply, both Kane and Sebastian felt a firm hand on the top of their heads. "So, how goes the training?" Claire asked, her voice sickly sweet and pleasant. Sebastian felt himself going to collapse again at this. Kane simply stuttered some as Claire laughed, glancing back over her shoulder. "That'll be it for now Ash. I'll take it as my win." Sebastian caught himself as he glanced over at her. ".... Uh, I saw nothing." He said to her. "Sebastian, do you remember what happened last time we met and you tried to lie to me?" Claire mused, leaning in close to him. Sebastian took a step back. ".... Uhhhhh...... If I said maybe, would you take that?" Laughing some more, Claire sat back up, stretching as she looked over the training room. "Well, I suppose you can just be thankful you completed your task." Looking back to Sebastian, Claire headed over to her bag, pulling out her purse before heading back over to him. Sebastian continued to shake as he watched her. "As promised, here's your reward." Pulling out a large, crisp $100 bill, Claire handed it towards Sebastian... Tugging it away when he reached for it. "Now, this is to be spent so that you and my sister can get the time to chat. I haven't forgotten what you first came here for, and she'll need to do something fun to take her mind off her bruises."

Sebastian blinked as he looked at her. "....Wha.... What?" He asked. "Just take her out somewhere, get a bite to eat, maybe do something fun, and then you can work through whatever you want to ask her. She needs to be on her best behavior too, given her trial the other day. Noir will accompany you just to make sure you don't get into any trouble." Sebastian gulped at this. "....O-okay..." Patting Sebastian on the head, Claire next turned to Sebastian. "As for you, it seems we're going to have to intensify the training a little bit, hmm?" Kane had attempted to sneak off during the interrogation, but found himself being dragged back by the collar. Sebastian looked at Claire and sighed. "...Um.... C-claire?" "Yes Sebastian?" Sebastian remained silent for a moment, but he looked down at this. "...N....Nevermind... I still need that money, you know?" "Oh right, I almost forgot." Laughing she dropped the note into his hands, turning back to the room where she'd been fighting Ash. "Come on sis, you can't stay in there moping all day!" Grumbling, Ash was pulling herself from the rubble as she dusted herself off, slowly trudging back into the hall with Sebastian and Kane. Sebastian looked at her as he glanced over at Claire. He frowned for a few seconds before sighing out and shaking his head and looking over at Ash. "... Let's just go." He said. "I hear that..." Ash grumbled, heading out the hall towards the garage. "You can't drive, right? We'll take my bike." Sebastian blinked. ".... Okay." He said, and they were off to find her bike.

“So, where’d you want to go?” Ash asked casually, fixing her hair as she started pulling on her helmet, taking a moment to grab the spare and toss it Sebastian’s way. She didn’t get why her sister was making her shepherd this kid around, but it was a bet, and she’d lost it fair and square. Not that it was ever in her favour. Watching Sebastian catch the helmet, Ash continued to make some last minute checks on Umbra as he spoke. “I remember there being a sort of fancy restaurant several miles from here... It's not that expensive, but it has some really good food."

“You want to eat somewhere like that?” Ash asked a little bluntly turning to face him. She was never that big of a fan of ritzy places like that – Especially if the food wasn’t worth the amount you were paying. “I hate to break it to you but I’m not exactly rolling in cash at the moment.” As if to answer her concerns, Sebastian began waving around a crisp $100 bill, causing Ashley to raise an eyebrow. “I appreciate the gesture, but I’d like to pay my own way, thanks.” Folding her arms, she watched Sebastian sigh – Maybe he was a little annoyed at her? Well, she wasn’t about to let some kid treat her to things. She had some pride to maintain. He seemed to accept that for the moment, inquiring into just how much she had on her.

“About $40, give or take.” Ash estimated, not bothering to check her pocket. For now, it seemed he had his heart set on things, so she may as well get it over. Whistling in her head, it took only a moment for Umbra to come driving into the garage, sliding to a stop in front of them as Ash climbed aboard, Noir leaping to snuggle into her lap. “Well, get on. You’ll need to direct me.” With another heavy sigh, Sebastian climbed on, Ash speeding them out and off through the streets. It was a quiet ride, Sebastian occasionally speaking up to direct her. Finally however, she coasted to a stop outside the place, kicking the stand and removing her helmet. “So, this the place, huh?”

Sebastian nodded and took off his as well. "Yeah... This is where Lucy, me and.... Someone else, use to go... Or whatever she calls herself now -- Lucifer or some bull like that." Ash noted the annoyance in his tone, but decided to ignore it, instead deciding to make some idle conversation. “You could afford something like this?” Sebastian sighed as he got ready to head in. "Yep... Lucy always had the money somehow - me and Rob... Well, we use to be thankful, despite wondering how she had it. Now that she's a demon -- one of those seven demon girls... It just doesn't feel like the same girl I grew up with."

"People change. It's kind of inevitable." Ash commented, pushing open the door and heading inside, taking a moment to look over the interior as Sebastian slowly following in after her. "Yeah... I guess. I just wish Deon had told me sooner about it... Oh well, let's just enjoy the day." Ash nodded a little at his comment, before heading over to the one of the waiters, asking for a table and being escorted to one of the back seats. After politely declining entrées, she began to examine the menu, looking for something tasty, and in her price range. It was all pretty fancy, but she’d probably end up going with something basic like a risotto. Not glancing up as Sebastian began speaking, as his voice lowered she was forced to drop her menu in order to listen in. "... So uh, do you ever know what happened to those two we met at that church?"

“Can’t say I have any idea. I’m sure they’ll turn up eventually.” Ash responded dismissively, having not really thought on their disappearance up until this point. Honestly? She was just thankful she was still alive and okay – as selfish as that concept may have been. "So... How was it? The WDL, I mean?" Sebastian prodded her again, causing Ash to sigh and rest her chin in one hand, leaning on the table. “It was different. Kind of like going back to school. We didn’t exactly get to stay there that long though.” Sebastian nodded at this. "So I remember... You aren't curious how Hell is like?"

“Not particularly. I imagine I’ll find out myself one day.” Ash chuckled a little to herself, closing her eyes. "... So is this a hint you want me to stop asking questions then?" Sebastian asked, causing Ash to open her eyes to regard him. Shifting to sit back, she folded her arms behind her head. “No, it’s alright. I’m just not that good at keeping conversation.” Ash responded truthfully, not entirely used to this sort of setting. Sebastian seemed a little taken aback, but his curiosity continued. “.... Oh. Well, I was wondering if you could tell me more about yourself."


"Like what?" Ash asked, looking to see where the waiter was so they could order. Honestly, for a high quality place like this… “Like.... What do you do in your free time?" Sebastian spoke again, Ash almost having forgotten he was there. Shrugging she settled back into her seat. “Normal stuff mostly. Working on my bike and driving it around. I used to play some videogames back at home, but we don’t exactly have that luxury here.” Ash sighed a little, thinking back to her normal life back at the house. It seemed so distant now… "Who knows, maybe you could ask them if you could go home... Even though some of us don't have homes to go back to." He admitted as he shrugged his shoulders. "But I'm probably boring you telling stuff like that."

"I guess this place is probably what you'd consider home now. The Renegades I mean." Ash mused slightly, wondering if she though of the Renegades as home too. She hadn’t been there that long, but… "... No. Not really. It's an army to me - nothing more." Ash blinked a little at Sebastian’s comment, a bit surprised by it. "Guess you're not too fond of the atmosphere there, huh?" Ash tried to make some ‘friendly’ talk, but all that seemed to do is bring up more unpleasant memories for the boy. ".... No. I almost died there - while you were fighting that other demon. Another demon showed up and stabbed me through the chest in five different spots at the same time and I nearly died of blood loss..."

"Oh uh... Wow. Kinda awkward..." Ash mumbled, not really sure what to say in response. That feeling persisted as Sebastian continued. ".... You know, ever since I've been brought into that church, I've been thinking to myself. Of how some feelings started to nag at me, I started contemplating what obsession felt like... Then I went into hell, and I felt like I died a thousand times over - no, more then that. When I got out of it, I felt like I had died a hundred times. But the obsession was still there... Then I met someone else and I started to think of what it means to know someone before having feelings for them. Then I met Lucifer, who went crazy from liking me so much.... As I stood there, on the line between life and death, I played a song my mother used to play for me... A song, she said that she and my dad used to dance to or something like that... I tried to send a message, I tried to use it to help, but... In the end, it was pointless." He sighed and put his forehead on his hands. "... I guess that pretty much sums up everything I've been doing since I got out of hell."

Remaining silent, Ash thought to herself about what she should say. Was it appropriate to say something? She had no idea if she was supposed to be trying to comfort him or what. It was times like this she wished she had Claire around, so that she could come up with something smart or philosophical to say. Maybe even crack a joke if it looked like it might work. But Claire wasn’t here, and she had no idea what to say, so she remained silent. It was probably thankful that the waiter arrived then to take their order, Ash ordering her meal and then retreating back into quiet solitude. Sebastian seemed to do the same, happily speaking with the waiter before returning to a sombre expression, clasping his head and leaning over the table. Ash sighed. “So did you actually come out here to enjoy yourself or are you just going to mope?”

Sebastian looked at her. "You aren't exactly helping me enjoy this. Someone I've been waiting to talk to for days now - and suddenly it feels downhill." Ash frowned, annoyance beginning to creep into her voice. "What exactly do you want from me? I already told you I'm not good with this sort of thing..." Her frown persisted, even as Sebastian tried to explain himself. "I wanted to get to know you better, okay? I just didn't want us to forget we even existed... Ugh, that sounded better in my head."

“I’m not even sure I understand what you mean by that…” Ash muttered, placing a hand to her forehead. Sebastian didn’t seem fit to explain it, and instead, decided to go with a more simple request. “Never mind.... I want to be friends." He stated simply, Ash sighing a little as she looked to him. “Simple enough kid. It’s not like I can ignore you if we’re going to be working together.” Glancing up, it seemed the waiter was approaching, which made it seem like a good place to stop. She’d thought that they’d come to a good agreement, but it seemed Sebastian didn’t think the same. "... That's partners. Just... Forget it. It's obvious this isn't going to work." Ash went to interject before the food arrived, forcing her to hold her tongue as she accepted her plate. Finally, after the waiter vacated, she was able to speak her mind. “Alright, I get it. You want me to be your friend – But honestly, I don’t get what more you want me to do. We’re gonna be working mostly, and I can’t imagine you’re gonna want to hang out with me during your breaks.”

"..... I honestly don't know myself any more. I'm so confused... I don't even know who I am any more." Sebastian mumbled, looking quite pathetic in his sorry state. Honestly, it was sad how messed up this kid had gotten from becoming involved in all this. “You’re you. I think that’s pretty obvious. And you make yourself into whoever you want to be.” Ash stated, beginning to munch on her food. She wasn’t sure if what she said made sense, but hopefully Sebastian got it. What he said next, probably was indicative that Ash had been missing the point the whole time.

"There's three people I like right now and I'm not sure who I'm supposed to try and... See if they feel the same and want to try something." Ash nearly choked on her food, taking a moment to chug down some water before eying Sebastian warily. “So that’s what this is about. You took me to this fancy restaurant because…”

"Because I was asked to help you take your mind off of pain." He finished for her. "... Something wrong with helping others out?" Ash blinked a little, before breathing an internal sigh of relief. “No, no. There’s nothing wrong with that. Anyway, I’m not exactly the kind of person you should turn to for love advice. I’ve been burned and burned far too many people already…” For a moment, Ash's mind drifted back to that night...

"So? I'm already asking you for a reason." Sebastian’s words put Ash’s back up once more as she returned to alertness – but, seeing as he was being rational about this, she could probably play it calm, let him down easy… “If you’re interested in me, I’d say there’s way better fish out in the sea. I don’t think we’d work out – And you’re a bit young.”

"... I've been trying to get over you ever since I recovered from the whole stabbing - trying to bring you back through a song - it got ignored and I ended up nearly dead for no reason... No, it's someone else I was on about."

“If that’s the case, then I think it’s quite clear that I’m not right for you.” Ash stated calmly, eager to sway any lingering thoughts about her he may have had. It was amazing how emotionally confused this boy was… "..... I -- ugh.... Look, I need to know things about your sister, okay?"

“Wait wait wait, hold up. You’re asking me about Claire?” Ash pinched the brow of her nose. This was getting more and more awkward by the second. Sebastian gave a subtle nod and yes, causing Ash to run her hand through her hair. Ugh, this wasn’t exactly what she’d thought she was getting herself into when she’d agreed to that bet… "Excuse me miss." A man working for the restaurant said as he had just come over. "You have a visitor outside who wishes to speak to you."

“Huh? Oh, sure. I’ll be back in a sec Sebastian.” Sitting up eagerly, Ash was happy to take whatever chance she could for some fresh air and to clear her thoughts. Stepping outside, she saw a cloaked figure leaning on the wall as he looked over at her, his eyes hidden in the darkness of his hood. "I don't have much time, so I'll make this short and quick." He stated, as she saw lightning literally travel across his body, the man skulking towards her. "My name is Bellfoar. Bellfoar the Boom Racer. Your family probably will know my name, as well as the name of our leader - Balarus of Kallos. Yes, he is back... And I want you to make sure they know somehow. Oh yes... I think you see where I'm going with this." He stated with a confident smirk, walking around her slowly now in circles. "We want the Evolution Child. If you do not bring him to us by 9 AM, we will take extreme measures. A town full of people will be blown to shit, we will torture the Renegades and... Your last name IS Clade... Right?"

"That's right. And you should know that the only thing I'll be giving you is my fist to your face." Ash responded, her eyes narrowed and her body tense.

"Try me." He responded, as she saw lightning arcing across his face again, his smirk present hidden beneath the sparks. If he was so confident, she’d have to use that opportunity to lay a beating down. Ash started moving up towards him, cracking her knuckles, then, well before she reached him, Belfoar's shadows swirled beneath his feet, entangling them as she came in for a heavy punch to his face. At first, it seemed like she was right on target… But then, right as she was about to make contact, a sharp bright light shot up between her target, and as Ash's fist collided with his face, she felt electricity coursing into her arm, sending jolts of pain through her, and the whole limb numbed, the occasional zap of pain still intermittently hitting her once she’d recoiled. Bellfoar shook his head as he looked at her. "Oh I know all about you, miss Clade... You see... I'm a Lightning Demon. Do you know that means for you?"

Wincing from the shocks still punishing her, Ash held her arm and glared at the ‘Boom Racer’. "That punching you wasn't my smartest move?" She retorted hotly through gritted teeth, which only seemed to widen the smirk on the lightning demon’s face. "That, and I can cancel out your little abilities on me. But we will meet again, soon I hope. Remember, the Evolution Child... Or your parents are mine."

"What?!" Ash's heart leapt in her throat, her body trembling from more than just the shocks for a moment. "You're bluffing!" Her accusation flew out in denial, but she wasn’t given an answer. Instead, the demon took off like a rocket, his laughter and a flurry of papers left in his wake as the wind whipped about. That bastard… What he was doing was lower than… Ugh, that piece of shit scumbag! Turning, Ash kicked the wall – hard - frustration building up inside her. Well, there was nothing she could do about it for now – She’d have to get back to Sebastian just to make sure he wasn’t in danger, and then, she’d probably have to speak to Claire and see what she thought about the whole thing. Flexing her arm to try and get rid of the last of the jitters, Ashley slowly made her way back into the restaurant.

Looking around, Keilani was starting to feel a bit uncomfortable being alone in such a large and dimly lighted room. She had yet to see anyone here except for herself. Even more, her instructor was also nowhere in sight. She wondered if she had come a bit earlier than was scheduled. It would be better for her to ask someone about it. As such, she decided to head towards the door. There must be some guards beyond it. She could ask them but before it could be done. The room was instantly illuminated to maximum brightness. As a response, she covered her eyes from the sudden brightness which slightly irritated her cornea. She then heard something coming out from the floor. "What?" Adjusting her sight, she looked around to find several target objects being raised from the ground. Soon enough, they surrounded her with some functional walkway between the gaps of one target to another. Some of them had faces of people talking on the phone, carrying grocery bags, and all. Others were horrid monsters that had been depicted in fantasy stories and fairy tales. It made her wonder what these illustrated targets meant. "Welcome! Welcome! Sorry for the wait!"

Turning around Keilani, her eyes met a feminine figure with noticeable cat ears on the head and a swaying tail from behind the said person. It made her wonder if there was some kind of costume party or this just a habit of this person. "Who are you, if I may inquire?" The said person revealed herself fully and offered a small smile. "I'm your instructor, Rin. You're Keilani Dreahen, right?" Keilani upon hearing her answer immediately gave a polite bow. "Yes, that is my name." Rin gave a nod and then circled around her with curiosity gleaming behind her eyes. Keilani looked at her instructor with slight nervousness. "Is there a problem, Ms. Rin?" In an instant, Rin stood in front of Keilani and shook her head in disappointment. "Just call me Rin. Anyway tell me, do you know exactly the specifics why you were put on trial?" At the mention of this, Keilani had a hopeful look that she might gain information on the exact reasons of the accusations against her and the time limit for her training. "I was only told that I destroyed property..." Rin had a thoughtful look and slightly narrowed her eyes. "Nothing else? Don't you remember anything?" Keilani shook her head in answer. "None. I only remembered a woman with wings of an angel wanting to kill me and intent on harming Blanche.... After that, nothing." It was then Keilani had realized something. "Where is that woman? Is she fine?"

Rin was not sure whether Keilani was too kind-hearted or too naive. It was very uncommon to care for one's enemy, especially on Keilani's case where the said woman wanted her dead. Thinking about it, there had been reports about a sighting of woman with angelic wings who was killed upon the arrival of the response team. Perhaps, she should look into it more. There must be a clue there as to why Keilani had gone totally ballistic on her powers. In any case, she should answer the pink-haired girl who showed clear concern. "I am not sure. No one knows. She just disappeared." Upon hearing that, Keilani released a sigh of relief. "I thought... I might have hurt her..." Somehow, Rin looked away at these words. It was not her intention to lie, but, she cannot risk the possibility of Keilani triggering another out-of-control event. There was also the risk on her health which Dr. Hyde had strictly told her to take care. "Well, we are here to make sure that you will gain control of your abilities. So, you won't worry hurting anyone again... okay?" Rin changed subject while smiling at Keilani. The said girl was silent for a moment before giving a nod of understanding. "I understand... But, I am not sure what my power is really..." Rin smiled brightly at this and showed Keilani a scroll. "No worries! This will help just need a drop of blood from you." Keilani blinked a few times before looking at the scroll. "My blood?" Rin nodded to assure Keilani of the requirement. "Yup, let's get to it." Rin grabbed hold of Keilani's hand and then pricked her index finger with a needle she procured somewhere. At that action, Keilani jolted ever so slightly as the needle pricked her skin. Afterwards, a minute amount of blood pooled around the pierced skin.

"Here we go..." Rin announced to no in particular as she took a drop of the blood and opened the scroll to revealed a very old blank parchment. "Behold..." After saying that, Rin dropped the blood on the parchment. Keilani watched in wonder as the blood on the said scroll seeped. Seconds passed by and soon visible lines began to appear magically on the not so blank parchment. Keilani looked at the scroll with a childlike disbelief. She had never seen such things in real life. It had always been something she had deduced to be purely fictional. Soon enough, the lines began to connect and form cursive writings for the two of them to read and analyze. When it was done, Rin had a rather very pensive look on her face and at the same time with interest. "Interesting set of powers... I must say." Keilani read the writings on the scroll mentally.


Keilani Dreahen's Powers

The Void

Hands of Kali


Elemental Entity Creation

Empathy

Mind Block

Deconstruction


Afterwards, Keilani looked at Rin curiously. "What do they mean?" Keilani asked as she does not understand the nature of the powers listed on the parchment. "The first three are you major powers. The latter three are your minor ones." Keilani listened intently but there was still a question in her mind as she spoke again. "What is the difference between Major and Minor?" Rin looked at the ceiling of the room for some time before answering Keilani. "The major powers can only be accessed in your demon form being the Devil's Child. You will have one eventually..." Hearing that, Keilani looked at the scroll again and thought about her demon form. She never did once thought that this will ever happen to her. "The minor ones are something you will have to work hard on but at the same time, it can be used even right now." Rin continued on as Keilani had a rather brooding expression. "Don't worry. I'll help you along the way. Plus, the other children are also training like you." Gaining the knowledge that other children like her were also training, she wondered how Ash, Sebastian, Kane, and Claire were doing. Taking a deep breath, Keilani looked at Rin with a very determined expression. "You're a strong girl, Keilani... You have to live..." Those words echoed within her as her eyes of rose pink seemed to be alight with a spirit of accomplishment.

Keilani's words made Rin smiled at the younger girl. Rin had expected such a fragile little girl or even a monstrous one reading and hearing the reports about her slaughtering Renegade and WDL soldiers indiscriminately. "All right, let's get to it then! I want you to destroy the targets around us." Keilani looked around and nodded in understanding but before she could make a move. Rin wagged her right index finger at Keilani. "I'm not done yet. You must not move from your current position and destroy the targets only with the blue ribbon on them." Looking at the targets, Keilani noticed that the ones with blue ribbons were in various places inside the room with such an impossible arrangement. "Only them?" Rin nodded and had a rather glint within her eyes. "Yeah and if you missed and hurt another target. I will double your physical exercises." Blinking a few times, Keilani once more looked at the targets and knew that this would be difficult to do. "Use your power of deconstruction." Rin pointed out with her arms crossed across her chest. "But, I don't know." Rin released a sigh at this statement. "Focus... Think of deconstructing it to the tiniest detail. You are in a bubble." Listening to Rin's voice, Keilani closed her eyes and follow the directions.

The three tries that Keilani had done were unsuccessful; however, the fourth one was a miracle saver. She was able to focus her mindset on one of the targets without a blue ribbon which was just beside it. "This is going to be difficult..." Keilani noted while looking at the damaged target which was an image of a woman with a grocery bags. "Of course, it can't be easy all the time. By the way, your physical training was just doubled." Ending her statement, Rin had a smirk on her face. As for Keilani, she was very apologetic and at the same time concern about the physical portion of the training. As if understanding Keilani's concern, Rin recalled the words of Dr. Hyde. "Don't worry Keilani. The doctor will help us." Keilani gave a nod for mere acknowledgement and continued her training of deconstruction. It went for many hours before Keilani could disintegrate only the targets with blue ribbon but not without a few mishaps. Still, Keilani could only disintegrate objects at a very slow process. Adding to that, she still was a bad aim to be considered. The next portion of the training was for her to sense the emotions of other people. She is after all an Empath which Rin had a hard time. However, that will be for some other time. The doctor did told her not put too much strain on Keilani. "Let's end at this note for now." Upon hearing that, Keilani immediately fell to her knees on the floor and she was breathing heavily. "Hey, come let's get you fix up." Rin approached Keilani and handed the younger girl a helping hand. Keilani took it without any hesitation and had a grateful smile. "Thank you very much." Rin simply smiled and helped Keilani to the infirmary once more.




Michael would be looking over some notes for the day as he felt one of his brows twitching. "Frikking Rin with her frikking spells with her frikking cat tail with her frikking cat form with her frikking fraking everything." A knock was heard on the door. "Come in, come in." Upon hearing that, the door swung opened with one of the leading physicians and researchers in the Renegades rank entered. Green hair with matching green eyes behind thick-rimmed glasses looked at Michael and gave a slight bow of respect. "Good day to you"

"Ah, Dr. Hyde... Good to see you haven't morphed into Mr. J yet. So, what's up?" Hyde shrugged at the latter statement. It was not like he has an alter ego or anything. His name was just attached to the notable work about Jekyll and Hyde, characters in a fictional literature. In any case, he was not here for that running gag on his name. "Doing good, I was wondering if you have seen my report about Keilani Dreahen's blood sample."

"Ah, that.... No, not really. What's up with it?" At this answer, Hyde released a short sigh and then approached the desk. He looked at some of the papers and found the report at the very bottom. Pulling it out, he presented it to Michael. "It has angel blood." Michael nearly passed out at this. ".... What now?" Hyde nodded confirming what he had stated. "The declared Devil's child has angel's blood. Although, there are certain differences from yours."

"How so?" He asked, completely baffled. "Well, there are certain markers in the DNA that greatly differs but, also a subtle similarity..." Hyde pushed up his glasses from the bridge of his nose before continuing. "Safe to say, the only similarity would be it is holy blood but the origin and family tree... completely different."

"........ Wha?" Hyde shrugged at this. "That is all I could say since this is a different blood strain from yours." He also released another sigh. "We also don't have much concrete information on angels and things firsthand. Adding to that, we don't that have more blood samples to compare it to."

".... Very well. Continue to investigate this strange occurrence." Hyde nodded and then remembered something that he had also found odd. "There is also another thing..."

".... Oh lord, these kids. What is it?" Hyde looked at the report once more before speaking. "She shares similar markers with Sebastian. But, it is not definite to be certain of anything as the holy blood overpowers it."

"..... What's that suppose to mean?" Hyde looked at Michael. "I know that the children should have similar DNA structure when it comes to the Devil's blood making them their children." He paused for a moment and pushed up his glasses to realigned it with his eyes. "But we did find a more prominent structure in Sebastian differentiating him and with Keilani's as well..." There was silence once more. "I have no scientific proof as of now... However, there is a possibility of them being truly related..."

"...... Ugghhh.... Looks like I have no choice. Hyde, new task for you to do as of right now. You are to go to Scott and tell him to assign Sebastian and his new team to the Kallos case. Also, yes, we are going to have teams now. I only have two in mind however - but get to Scott, he'll know about them more then me." Hyde gave a small nod upon hearing the instruction. "Sure, You're the boss. But is this really fine? Assigning him to that case?"

"..... They want him so badly? They'll get him." Hyde released another sigh at this. "Okay. I'll be going now." With that said, he left Michael on his own again. Michael sighed once he was gone and sat down, putting his face in his hands.

Angel Meets An Angel


Angel looked up from his Gameboy as the man outside knocked on the door. "Come in, my children~". He shouted with a semi-snarky tone that was full of redicule and pride. After all, he'd managed to capture the Phoenix. The men brought a man in as they had him stop, each of them were holding his arms. "Sir, we have caught this man trying to get in here without permission". "I was under the impression you roughly brought me here... Honestly, how is this a formal treatment?", the man commented. Angel looked up and spoke again, a grin stretching across his face. "And who are you?". "The better question is... Who are YOU?". Raphael smugly asked. "Who are you to talk like that to our Archknight?! We should beat you for that!". "Beat me? My, you gentlemen don't recognize me... The old timers would. Arthur knew me. But I don't know you."

At the mention of Arthur's name, Angel rocketed up from his seat and withdrew Excalibur, whom exclaimed in awe. "Ooooh, Raphaeeel! Long time no see!~". Arthur look from the blade to the man before him, and growled. "So you're Raphael, eh? Men, leave us". Raphael smirked as the men quickly stumbled out and closed the door behind them while Raphael remained quiet and watched Angel.
"So why are you here, Raphael?". Raphael chuckled. "I heard you have finally captured Deon Morris?". Angel furrowed his brows. "That wasn't an answer". Raphael got a serious face at this. "I know.... I came here because I was wondering whether you knew about the set-up or not?". Angel turned to the Angel (LOOOL) and spoke. "Of course, I was one of the people who thought of it, of course". Raphael shook his head. "Not that set up... The one Kallos has planned". He said. "... Only Deon would know about it, so I've heard". Angel had turned away from the angel by this time, but as those words registered with his mind he whirled around. "What set-up!?".
Raphael shrugged. "I believe they are planning something... Or so I'm led to believe. It seems three of your boys have finally found some of them.... But I don't think those will turn out to be good results. So... Deon might know what Kallos is up to". Angel turned away again, rubbing his wrist tenderly. "Why would he know what Kallos is up to? What are you saying I should do!?". Raphael sighed. ".... Interrogate him, you idiot". Angel turned, and his grin widened considerably. "So, what should we use to tortu- Interrogate him, Raphael?". Raphael rose a brow. "Just bring the most holy things you can and I will be there... Arrange a schedule. I will make sure your men stay alive...". Angel rose an eyebrow, and spoke. "Can't you just summon some Holy Weapons yourself? And why can't we interrogate him now? I've been waiting for this day I'm not going to delay it any longer". Angel turned and growled. "Even for an angel".

"One problem. Renegades. Plus I am not the one who cares about this information, now do I?". Angel growled at Raphael. "What do you mean 'Renegades'? He's been officially stripped of his title so they have no way to actually get him back or stop me. It's been declared and it won't ever change".
"They can declare war though. And then you'll lose most of your entire forces that another man built up. Just to -- what, keep one phoenix alive? Heh... Good luck remaining a hero after that". Angel turned and sighed. "I was hoping that I could get your help with that. You are an angel, and that Michael is a half-angel. Why not persuade him somehow?...". "....Or, we could hit him where it hurts. That Kasha is close to him.... Maybe...". Angel was interrupted as Raphael spoke again. "No. I already had Gabriel go there - they'll try to save him, no doubt. No doubt they'll also try to find us and make an alliance... Heh. Wait till they learn of my plan. But do you as you wish - don't mind me. I will help of course - just in my own way. If you don't like that, well... I could just leave you to try to interrogate him yourself". Angel growled again. "Well then, we shall be off to the dungeon where Deon is located. I don't care if you accompany me or not, but make sure the Renegades don't interrupt me. Or there will be hell to pay". Angel walked out of the room laughing in victory. Raphael shrugged. "Suit yourself". He mumbled before following him.

Torture Time!


[CAUTION CAUTION - The following Section may Contain Scenes that may offend some viewers. Please skip this section if you can't handle mediocre violence, even though this is a semi-grimdark Roleplay. Don't take this warning lightly, because I don't want anyone to vomit unless they want t- I mean what? But really, if you don't like torture, then skip this scene. Some people do x3 - CAUTION CAUTION]

The cold, dimly lit room was dark and cold (Oh, ya don't say!), the only light coming from a single dangling bulb that was hanging from the roof, directly above the figure that was tied to the chair. The grimy, stone brick walls were covered with blood and bits of torn flesh, hanging from the roof were several corpses hung from reddened meat hooks that were rusted from age and overuse, while the bodies were rotting with decay, the maggots feasting on the death inside of them spilling onto the floor and crawling, squirming around as they tried to find new flesh to devour. The chair was made of steel, with both leather straps and steel restraints around the wrists and ankles. Large, sharp screws were built into the restraints, and if the person in the chair struggled enough, they would drop down forcefully, piercing straight through their flesh and bones and into the chair below, locking them there.

Deon sat in said chair, staring at the dirty floor that was covered in a mix that seemed to be of blood and... something else. Deon didn't have much time to figure out what, as a door in front of him opened and into the room stepped Angel, followed by another man that Deon hadn't met before, but his senses were telling him that the man was dangerous. Maybe not so much physically, but he seemed so... There wasn't a word Deon could find to describe it due to the massive amount of sedatives flowing through his system. Deon looked up in a haze, his eyes slightly blurry because of the amount of Holy Water that had been poured on him as he stepped out of the Hummer that had brought him to where he was. He recalled Angel heading to his office or something, not that it mattered now since the man was standing before him babbling about something that Deon didn't really care about.

What Deon did care about however, was the large thing they had brought into the room with them. It was concealed under a blanket or a cloth for the moment, but Deon had a feeling that whatever it contained wouldn't be pretty. Not for him, and not for anybody who had ever seen whatever was under that covering before him. As Angel ceased his ranting, which was something about being the victor and Deon finally being where he should be, Deon smirked and laughed in his face. Deon shut up almost immediately as the covering was pulled away to reveal innumerable objects of torture and pain, ranging from saws to scalpels to crosses and bottles of concentrated Holy Water. Deon eyed all of these, and glared up at Angel with a smirk on his face. "Bring it on, asswipe".

Angel simply grinned and turned away, facing the trays that were filled to the brim with instruments of torture, and he bit his lip. Deon figured he was probably trying to decide on what to torture him with first, but Deon smirked as he pulled out a simple scalpel and held it up to the light. Apparently it wasn't good enough though, because Angel put it back, favoring a golden carving knife, or at least that's what it seemed like, over it. Angel pulled his arm back to stab Deon, but paused momentarily and grinned. "Holy Water". Angel grinned wider as he grabbed a jar of Concentrated Holy Water and doused the Knife into it. "This is a Holy Object, having been blessed by numerous people and consecrated. This might sting a bit... Who am I kidding! This will hurt a ton!". Angel grinned as he thrust the knife into Deon's stomach, the sound of splitting flesh and gushing blood echoing through the room as Angel pulled the knife upwards and the across Deon's chest, cracking ribs and slashing organs that spilled their contents and blood all over the seat and floor. Deon coughed as Angel completed the square, grabbing the piece of flesh with his hand and pulling it away slowly until he yanked on it, tearing it apart and filling the room with the sounds of tearing flesh and dripping blood.

Angel's eyes widened as he reached into Deon's now torn open chest cavity, and grasped his Liver. With a mighty tug, he wrenched it free and threw it down onto the floor, ignoring it completely until he grabbed Deon's kidney and did the same thing. Angel turned around, grinning as he picked up the organs and began to cut them into pieces. As he cut, his mind was racing. He finished fairly quickly and dipped the pieces into the concentrated Holy Water before turning to Deon with a smirk. "Open wiiiiide~". Angel leaned forward and grabbed Deon, forcing his mouth open and pushing the pieces of his own guts down his own throat, causing him to choke and tear up. Angel grinned, turning away and pulling out a drill that he soaked in Holy Water. Deon spat out his organ pieces and watches as his chest slowly regenerated. Angel grinned and slammed the Drill into Deon's eye socket, pushing it all the way through into Deon's skull until he stopped moving completely, and the blood had drenched the both of them.

Angel pulled the Drill out of Deon's eye socket, watching as the Phoenix coughed and shook his head in pain. "Fuck you, Angel. On second thought no, I'm not Gay". Angel growled and tossed the Drill away, grabbing the knife and cutting Deon open again before grasping his heart and tearing it out of him with a sickening crunch and a stomach-turning squish. Angel grinned. "I'll put your Heart here".
"Make it Explode".
"...Why would I-"
"MAKE IT EXPLODE!"

Angel growled, reaching under the Desk and pulling out two vials of alternating liquid which he pour together onto Deon's heart, causing it to literally explode.
"There....Now-"
"OOOOOOOOH YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!! THAT WAS SO GOOD!"
"The Power of Christ Compels You!"
"The Power of Christ Fucks You!"


Angel growled to himself, turning away from the Phoenix who stuck his tongue out at him mockingly. Angel sigh before spinning around, unsheathing Excalibur, and cleaving Deon's head off with it. As Deon's head flew through the air and landed, he had a look of dejection on his face. "What a spoilsport....".

Omega's Carnage


Shin was pelting down the Hallways of the Renegades HQ when he realised that he had absolutely no idea where he was going. He skidded to a stop and rubbed his forehead, the effects of the Crime-scene were still hitting him. He desparately needed to find Scott, and he wouldn't rest until he did so, so he took off down yet another corridor in search of the man. Eventually, Shin found Scott leaning against a wall, sipping coffee and commenting on how good it was. Shin skidded to a stop just in front of Scott, and grabbed his hand. "We have an emergency in Tokyo, just come with me!". With that, he began to drag Scott to the Monitor Room. Scott didn't resist, and Shin pulled him into the Monitor room, ordering for the Monitors to be switched to Tokyo 73, the scene of a rampage. "This... This was done by someone calling themselves 'Omega', Scott". Shin watched as Scott's eyes widened and he dropped his coffee, his cup shattering on the floor as a barely audible "God help us" escaped his lips.

Shin turned to Scott. "Reports say that he wears a hood and cloak and was conversing with one... Mr Alberto Farrantino, a mid-forties Mobster-esque man who was into all the illegal stuff". Shin sighed. "See what I mean by emergency? This is only the first...". Scott groaned at this, and spoke. "I need you to do me a favor, Shinji". Shin turned, a quizzical expression on his face. "What is it, Scott?".
"Make reservations for Tokyo".
"What about the other countries?".
Shinjei inquired.
"Any situations I need to know?".
They're all the same, Scott. There's been at least two in every country. All in one single night".

Scott paused.
"....Make reservations for America, Australia and Russia as well".
"Done and done and done, anything else?".
"Not for now. Just... Keep a a look out for anything related to 'Omega'.
"Sure thing, Scott".
Scott sighed and walked away. "I'll go inform the WDL to update their List". With that, Shin was left alone in the Monitor room with the spilled Coffee. He looked down at it and called for someone else to clean it up. "I have some work to do....".

The Sweet Smell of Spring


The cool night breeze drifted through the Renegades HQ, carrying with it rose petals of few amounts. Little did the occupants of the building know that the cause was a certain person standing outside the building, twirling a parasol in her hand with a smirk. "Honestly, such a remarkable leap in technology these Humans have made, but I fear the Kappa are still far, far ahead in that respect". The figure grinned, reaching out and grasping a rose petal and pulling it to her lips gently. "How far did he go for them, I wonder? Such a carefree person must have had reservations about such a punishment. Especially one such as him. Isn't that right, Remilia?". Suddenly, the area beside the figure rippled, expanding and then contracting. Stretching and moving until the very fabric of space-time was torn. From within the tear, another figure emerged, smiling lightly and twirling a glass of wine between her fingers. "Tell me, Aurora, how much fun shall you be having with his.... 'request', I wonder?~". Aurora grinned, and turned to Remilia. "Oh, I think I shall be having much fun with it. Much fun with her, I might even say". Remilai grinned, sinking into the tear and causing it to vanish from sight. "Remember, the invitations must be given out, Aurora~". Aurora sighed, and spoke out loud. "I am aware, my friend".

Suddenly, the amount of flower petals flowing through the Base increased dramatically, a torrent of petals whipping through the base and a ghostly, mystical voice reached out to Michael. "Meet me in the Courtyard~". The torrent of petals stopped, a vicious whirlwind of petals of numerous flowers appearing in the Courtyard. It "I'm here.... Show yourself". The whirlwind reacted to Michael's voice, the figure inside being visible for only a second. Her green hair and red eyes along with her semi-pale skin marked her as one of the most well-known Youkai on the planet. "....So, am I meeting the famous Poison Ivy from the comics?". At this remark, the petals moved and began to wrap around Michael, clearing the space between the two figures and revealing the female figure fully. "My, my. Such a gracious host~ Why, you haven't even truly introduced yourself yet. Where are your manners, young man?~". Her lips turned up slightly, her playful tone echoing above the torrent of the winds. "As long as I don't get a kiss of Death... The name's Michael Malachim. I didn't think we'd be getting such a chance to see you come right to our doors.... You do know how dnagerous the Exorcists are becoming in this area?". Aurora smirked. "If you are threatening me, it is a hopeless cause.You are no danger to me now that the Phoenix is gone, Michael~".

Aurora let out a laugh and spoke. "My, my. Such bravado you have! Although I could destroy this base easily, I am not here to fight".
"I was trying to be helpful, but whatever.... Why are you here then?".
"Simply because a certain young man asked me for a favor~".
"What young man?".
"The one that gave himself up for his comrades. The Phoenix, of course".
"Ronove is a brilliant Butler, and Luna is a close associate of mine, Michael~ Although they are not mine. Tell me, how long has it been since I was last seen in the outside world, hmm?~".
"......I can't recall. I haven't been in the Business long enough".
"Are you aware of who I am?~".
"Your description matches that of a certain Youkai's".
"Oh, and which Youkai would that be?".
"Aurora..... But she was thought to be dead".
"Tsk, tsk, tsk. Deon simply spared me, I must say~".
"Spared you? When did he....?".
"Oh, maybe around..... seventy-three years ago, if I can recall it properly?~".
"His bargain was very, very well thought out. No doubt he has an idea about how to escape his current.... 'situation'".
Aurora laughed lightly, a laugh that shower that she knew something.
"......That guy is just one mess after another. But what are you saying?".
Aurora grinned, and gave Michael a look. "I have no idea what you're talking about".
".....So what do you have to say then?".
"Show me.... Mireya Nightless".

Before Michael could answer, a man cleaved his way through the flowers and approached Aurora. "Who the hell do you think you are, barging in here like you own the place, eh? I'm the Guard here! I'm the one who technically runs this pla-". Before he could continue to yell at the Youkai Lady further, she shoved the tip of her Umbrella into his mouth, causing him to choke lightly. Then, Aurora chanted something to herself and grinned. "Flower Spark". Suddenly, a brilliant light shot out from the tip of Aurora's umbrella, blasting the Guard straight up into the sky, albeit without a head or neck, and some of his shoulders were missing as well. Aurora kept the beam concentrated on the man until it went out, and then she turned to Michael. "Now would be good, thanks~".
Michael sighed and nodded. "Release me first...".
Aurora grinned. "Who said you were trapped, Michael?~".
Michael tried to move forward, but a barrier of petals stopped him. Aurora grinned. "I'm not letting you near me just yet, Angel boy~".
Aurora watched as Michael furrowed his brows and headed towards the Renegades Base, with Aurora following behind him.

"Honestly, the service here is horrifyingly lax. Please, someone hand me some Earl Grey Tea and some Scones with Jam?~".

"I am always alone... It is why I don't need your sympathy..."

Mireya tilted her head to the side and looked at S in that manner. "Is this still considered training?" She asked out of nowhere and then looked at the ceiling which now was a gaping hole. "That's insured, right?" S sighed. "I'll repair this room later.... I have to sleep in it later. So.... What, you got some mood swings going on?" Mireya looked at S again and shrugged. "I am not certain about that..." She looked at her current outfit with a raised eyebrow. "I don't even know where this attire came from? It's like I am starring in some cheap sci-fic film with the category of Rated R." S shrugged. "That and it makes you look like you want to show yourself off to boys." Mireya looked at S for quite some time and then looked at her attire again and then to S again and then her attire. "Good, there are no boys then." S rose a brow. "There's still me you know." She commented. Mireya looked at S incredulously. "You're not a boy." S lowered her head at this and sighed out. Mireya wondered what the sigh meant but chose to ignore it all together. She had concluded it was not something to ponder about deeply. "Anyway, are we continuing or is it the end of the session?"

S rose her head. "My job at the moment is to give you endurance... I haven't done a good job of that." Mireya had a thoughtful look. "Endurance?" She crossed her arms over her chest. "We should have climb a mountain range or jogged somewhere." S shook her head. "No, no.... That won't do. In a fight, your going to get beaten. A lot. Many times it will be by physical attacks, others will be demons using they're powers to fuck you up." Mireya closed her eyes in thought. There was truth in what S was saying; although, the only demon that she could probably say that she had the decency to meet with its head attached to its body was the cosplaying woman at her apartment not too long ago. "I guess that's true... What do you suggest then?" S rose her hands up. ".... Why do you think I'm here?" Mireya scratched her head and shrugged. "You're supposed to be a trainer or something along those lines." S sighed. "I'm suppose to beat it into you!" Mireya nodded nonchalantly. "Alright. then go ahead." S sighed and walked over. "I was going to do it too... It was going to be fun. But then that -other- side of you came out." Mireya narrowed her eyes but not to glare. She diverted her eyes away from S for a short while and thought about the voice she had heard in her head. It belonged to the man in her dreams once more. "Other side..." S stopped in front of her. "Yeah.... It's pretty much like me - but evil." Mireya sighed at this. "I remember it... It felt like seeing myself in a mirror."

S then quickly punched her in the gut. Mireya's eyes widened at this as she instinctively coughed while grabbing hold of her stomach as she fell on her knees. S smirked. "Payback feels good." Mireya glared at S upon hearing this. "Tsk." She finally regained her strength to stand as she returned the favor by punching S on her face. S took it, but unlike last time, she felt something... Non man-made. Something much harder. She smirked and her eyes lit up with fire as she elbowed her in the chest. Mireya bit her lower lip as the elbow connected with her chest. She could feel something coming up through her throat but she prevented it. Instead, she delivered a knee to S' gut as retaliation. S chuckled as she karate chopped down on her arm. Mireya felt something broken at that hit. She immediately stepped away and a flurry of winds that were so sharp attacked S. As for Mireya, she grabbed her right arm and somehow, she was sweating. S stepped to the side of the winds and knocked each of them away from her, letting them collapse around the room as she shrugged her shoulders. "Can you heal?" Mireya's eyes were beginning to get a bit hazy but it was not due to a power surge or changing personalities. It was because of the pain coursing from her broken right arm. She held on to it as she leaned on a nearby wall placing her back on it. "Apparently, not..." S walked over. "Really?"

Mireya slowly slide down to the floor as she hugged her arm close to her. "...Tsk." She clicked her tongue as she felt that she would faint from the pain. S knelt down in front of her and grabbed her shoulder. "I'm not meant to break you, so consider this one for free." She said. Mireya instantly slapped the hand that grabbed her shoulder with defiance. "Don't you even dare." She slowly stood from her position while trying to ignore the pain which was quite hard to do. "In a real fight, my enemy won't help me." S rose a brow and punched her knee. ".... You know, I think I have to reveal a little something something about miss drinks-a-lot." Mireya was surprised that she fell on her back. Fortunately, she was able to avoid her broken arm from supporting her weight as to not to further aggravate the injury. "What the!?" She mumbled instinctively as she found herself on the ground once more. "If you want me to break you, so be it. I'll do it.... If you don't want my help, say it and I'll break every limb you have. But Quake, the demon you had a drinking contest with, isn't your average demon. She's a damn Oni for Christ sakes." Mireya glared at S and began standing once more. Her eyes still hazed from the pain however, she had a rather defiant look on her face. "So, what if she's an Oni." She really did not care for the fact. As long that someone was in her way, she will beat them up. "Oni's are considered some of the strongest demons. They can easily punch mountains down with a few punches, they can lift land... Hell, they break hell on occasions. She was born from birth this way - but she earned it all the same. Sure she's cocky, but she knows she can destroy most of her enemies if she really wanted to. So don't be all stubborn with me... Don't try to act tough. You NEED my help."

Mireya finally let go of her right arm as it stayed on her side limply. There was a portion that was beginning to form a rather reddish bulge. Her breathing was becoming rapid as the moment passed by. "Just do what you're ordered to do." S walked in front of her and grabbed the back of her head. "I am." She stated, before pulling her roughly and forcefully into a kiss. Mireya's eyes widened at this and an obvious blush was present on her cheeks. However, it soon changed into that of disbelief. She could feel the lifeforce being taken from S. It was becoming more obvious as she could feel her right arm beginning to heal. The sensation of her bones being put back together could be felt and it was very odd to do so. Moreover, she was beginning to feel much rejuvenated by it. It was then she pushed S forcefully away from her and glared. "Don't you ever do that again." She wiped her lips immediately and in a rather disgusted manner. S laughed at this. "Feel better?" Mireya still glared at S. "No thanks to you!" S smirked. "You'll be getting more of that, so don't worry about it." She said, before walking over and kneed at her. Mireya this time caught the knee and delivered a knee to S' jaw in response. Afterwards, she delivered another punch covered with lightning much like a warped barb wire to S' gut. "I don't need it."

S laughed at this. "For now." She stated, before increasing her speed and appearing behind Mireya, punching at her back. Mireya was not able to dodge that. As a result, she flew across the room. However, she was able to put a stop to it by using her feet and hands as brakes on the floor. She stopped midway and instantly propelled herself with winds behind her as she delivered a straight punch to S' face dead center. This time S moved and while she was in mid-air, sent a knee up into Mireya's gut. A barrier appeared in front of Mireya's gut. Thus, she was completely unaffected as Mireya grabbed S by the hair and threw her towards the wall like a rag doll. After doing that, she landed back on the floor but then felt suddenly tired. Her vision was getting blurry and her limbs felt so tired. She held her head with one hand as her current attire slowly dissolved into white light as she returned to her former appearance. "So tired..." She then lost consciousness as she fell on the floor. S stopped herself when she was thrown, but then saw Mireya collapsed. She rushed over and knelt down by her, checking her pulse. Mireya was out cold. Her breathing was rather shallow but her pulses were stable yet weak. S sighed out at this and put a hand on her back and on the back of her head. "Poor thing... Forgive me." She said, and placed her lips on Mireya's. Closing her eyes, she let her energy be drained until she was forced to revert out of her demon form, pulling away once this was done and then picked her up, put her over her shoulder and walked out of the room. "Now where did Scott go I wonder?"



"The sands of fate slowly drops to an end... but then turn it around... you regain your lost time..."

"Master, I have come as you requested." Elegia spoke with much respect as she knelt on the ground with her head lowered as her ebony hair fell at her sides. She was definitely different in how the Archduchess portrayed herself with others. "The time is almost near. Will she be ready by then." Those words were like ice cold water that washed over her. She resisted the urge to shiver as it was deplorable in her opinion. "She will be. I assure you Master." There was complete silence after her statement was delivered. The winds, sounds, time, have appeared to have stopped. She did not dare to move from her position for she knew the danger of such moments. "Elegia." At the mention of her name, she cannot help but feel a certain odd sensation as she closed her eyes for a brief while. It was a secret but she had always liked hearing her name rolling out from the lips of the master. "What is it, Master?" The answer was the sudden explosions on both of her sides. This made her immediately look at the Master with fear slightly reflecting within those blue eyes. "Better." This was the short comment as steel silver eyes gazed at her without a peek to what His intentions were. She was not sure whether to fret meeting those eyes or be captivated by it completely. "I apologize for not understanding your order, Master."

Silence reigned once more as Elegia remained looking at the Master before her. He is exquisite and undoubtedly beautiful both in men and woman standards. No one in their right minds would disagree to that obvious fact. Then, there was an image more specifically, Saulkur's that coincided with the Master's face. It only infuriated her as she instinctively looked away and her presence seemed to darken which was not unnoticed by the Master. As for him, this change in her countenance intrigued the Great King. He had seen her angry and those were mostly directed to enemies. However, the Archduchess had never slipped in her mask before his audience. One of his loyal subjects who had maintained an air of calm and proper appearance seemed disheveled by something. "Do you not like seeing my face." It was spoken with a deadpan tone that she immediately returned her gaze to meet those iron-clad silver eyes. "No! I was thinking of another! It was not because of you, Master. Please forgive me." Silver eyes did not allow any emotions to come to its surface. "Saulkur has come to the mortal realm under your jurisdiction, isn't he." The question made Elegia stiffened and lowered her head. Images of what had occurred between them flashed through her mind. She could feel her cheeks turning into red. There was no way she would permit herself to be seen by the Master like this.

"...Yes, Master... Do you want to erase my connections with him?" Elegia asked without looking at her Master and King. "No. Just make sure that he would not be a hindrance." Finally calming herself, she raised her head to meet those steel silver eyes still gazing at her. "I will personally erase him from existence if he does anything to offend you or interrupt the plan." He slowly closed his eyes with a grace and elegance uniquely inherent within him. "It is weakening... Soon, they would not be enough." There was no tone of urgency in his voice; however, the message of the statement was clear. She quickly stood from her position and had a very stern and determined expression. "She will be ready before that happens. I promise you, Master." His eyes remained closed as silence reigned between them for a moment. "You are dismissed." With that said, she gave respectful bow. "Your will be done, Master." It was then she took her leave finally. Her eyes of blue had a subtle flame behind it. It might be a resolve or a stern decision she had made. Nonetheless, she would make certain that nothing gets in her way. "I will destroy everyone in my way even myself."

At the sound of the massive doors to his throne room, Paimon opened his silver eyes as Elegia had already left. However, a floating spherical liquid-glass globe appeared before him. A faint glow emitted from it as the rippling colors reflected in his eyes. "They are getting anxious." The said globe seemed to show images of something or preferably someone. Regardless, his face remained pristine and unmoved by what he was watching. "It would be interesting to see what would happen if they do get out with all these skirmishes going around. Don't you think?" He leaned on his throne casually and felt a pair of hands caressing his face. "That is treason." It was then he felt his head being forced to look upwards where he met amber green eyes looking down on him while long radiant green locks fell around his face covering him entirely. "So, are you going to tell me on your daddykins?" He grabbed the hands that held his face and removed it effortlessly. "I would not need to. You will tell him anyway, Ophidis." The one called Ophidis gave a rather seductive yet bright smile. She was a dazzling beauty in her own right but at the same time had a rather bold choice in clothing. "You know me too well Paimon." Ophidis then took a position by sitting on his throne's armrest. "I was wondering how sure are you that you would not fail, Paimon. That little Archduchess might not be as strong as you think." He returned his gaze to the floating sphere before him. "I never fail." Upon hearing this, she laughed heartily and then shrugged. "Good to know you are still charming as ever. I will watch things unfold for a bit now... You wouldn't mind right?" He remained silent while his eyes stayed on the floating sphere. "Silence means yes." She noted and had a rather confident smile.



"The world is really small for people like us... Don't you think?"

Saulkur would be waking around the city as he looked around and mumbled to himself quietly, obviously a little angry. He wanted to see Elegia, but she was too busy suddenly to care about him. It made him made. He started to formulate a plan in his mind. Yes... He knew how to get her to admit her feelings. "It should be around here somewhere..." A girl with long ash-blonde which was put into twin braids walked along the street while looking at the piece of paper in her hand. Saulkur didn't see where he was going and bumped into her, which resulted in him falling backwards at this. The impact placed the girl in surprise as she fell on the ground on her butt. The paper she held float for some time in the air before landing at the top of her head. It was then she had took hold of the situation and immediately apologized. "Oh my! I am so sorry! I wasn't looking where I was going!" Saulkur blinked and got up on to his feet at this and walked over, holding out his hand to help her up. He didn't say anything as he watched her in silence. The expression of complete panic and worry was clear on her face. She was even more concerned as the man she had bumped into was so quiet that it was unnerving. Regardless, the girl reached for the hand. "I'm so sorry..."

Saulkur blinked and got up on to his feet at this and walked over, holding out his hand to help her up. He didn't say anything as he watched her in silence. The expression of complete panic and worry was clear on her face. She was even more concerned as the man she had bumped into was so quiet that it was unnerving. Regardless, the girl reached for the hand. "I'm so sorry..." Saulkur took hold of her hand and helped her up on to her feet, as he began to brush her off at this. He even brushed off her butt as he then looked at her and sighed. "... I'm at fault, don't blame yourself. I'm dealing with issues right now." He stated, observing her as he did. She instantly stiffen as he began 'brushing' her off. Her eyes widened in surprise and especially when his hand went over to her but. Instinctively, his words passed through her like a wind as her hand immediately connected to his right cheek. "Pervert!" Saulkur blinked as he felt her hand connect with his face as he tilted his head to the side at this. ".... What's a pervert?" He asked. She could tell one thing though from looking at his eyes - he was being completely serious.

There was silence as the girl's answer. She was not sure if this was some kind of prank. She should have listened to her parents that city people were scary and weird. Slowly, she backed away and the only acceptable option to her at the moment was to run away from the guy which she did without looking back. Saulkur grabbed a hold of her hand quickly as she went to run away - he was quick to know what she was up to before she even knew it. "... You were dirty. In my family, it is unacceptable to have dirtied someone up like that and well, uh... We tend to quickly brush off others as a sign of respect for one another. ... Is that okay?" Startled by this, she looked at him with obvious fear. Her mind was being flooded with many conclusions about the man that grabbed her hand. All of them ended with her dead on the gutter somewhere. His explanation did not really got through her as she was more focused on the fact of what happened earlier and his oddity. Danger flashed brightly in her head. "...Okay..." She managed to say so the strange guy would just release her. Saulkur instead brought her arm over closer to him as he inspected her arm. He ran his fingers gently along her arm as she began to feel an unusual amount of pleasure beginning to run through her arm. It began to feel better then it had in months - possibly years. He continued to inspect her arm as he furrowed his brows. "... Unacceptable. I cannot let you go away in such a harmful condition. If you will allow me to take you somewhere private for a moment, I will gladly help you." He said, looking at her eyes as he waited for her answer.

His next action made her blush brightly. She was not even sure if anyone in the right mind would not feel something from the touch being given to her. However, it only scared her further as she was being confused by the logic of her mind and the reaction of her body. Regardless, the one who won was quite evident upon the question directed at her. This guy was too dangerous. "N-N--No! I'm fine! I need to go somewhere now! Someone's is waiting for me..." She pulled her arm away from his hold eventhough it felt good that the tingling sensations can still be felt. "Goodbye." Saulkur grabbed her shoulder then. ".... Then just the arm." He said and quickly took out something very quickly at this, he pulled her away quicker then she could respond. Once he stopped, he had her back against a wall as he was applying what she could only confirm as some kind of lotion. Then he began to message her elbow, and she felt herself immersed in pleasures she had never experienced before. He began to run his hands all over spots on her arm, each one sending out a jolt of pleasure coursing through her. "... I have been studying the human body for as long as I can remember. I have always wanted to help out others our of dire circumstances... I have always feared that somehow, people are destroying they're own bodies more then they should. Someone clearly was doing the same to your arm... Oh yes, you probably can't speak right now. I apologize - I know how to make a person better.... And I also found out how I could also destroy them." He said the last part with regret, as he was now doing her hand, watching her as he sighed. ".... I must seem like the weirdest person in the world right now..." He then stopped after several minutes had passed - her arm now more smoother then it had ever been, it felt more better then it had ever been. He then applied one more spot on her arm before stopping and pulling away and he put the lotion away too. "... There. I hope you do not mess up that arm then you had before - I would hate to see you lose it..."

"Wh--What! Please--- There is no---" However, her words fell on deaf ears. It seemed that the man could not take a no for an answer. She tried to pull out her arm from his grasp but it was useless. He began applying something she had no idea about. His touches were excruciating pleasant which only made her bit her lower lip to held back a moan threatening to spill. At the same time, she looked away and closed her eyes tightly. She was shivering both in pleasure and confusion of what was happening here. It was then she had conceded that her parents were right about not coming to the city. His words simply passed through her without making sense. Most of it was just rabble to her. Actually, she could not understand anything with his insistent touching. She was not sure anymore if he was just playing dumb or something. One thing is for sure this was not good for her at all. When he finally pulled away, she was both relieved but mostly disappointed. "I--- I have to go!" Upon identifying that feeling, she immediately left without another word. Her face was completely flushed resembling a tomato. Saulkur blinked and watched her. ".... D-don't you want some of this stuff to have for your other arm?" He asked before she was out of ear shot.

Alvanzo looked at the rustling trees above him as he leaned on the trunk behind him wistfully. It had been quite dull around this area. "So boring..." He sighed in complete disappointment of his current situation. "Lady Elegia said to be at your best behavior Alvanzo." Devant noted as he appeared out of nowhere on the other side of the said tree leaning as well on the trunk. "I'll do what I want you stupid fox." Alvanzo retorted with obvious anger in his voice. "We will be meeting a somewhat important person in Hell after all." Alvanzo grunted at this. "As if I care..." Devant shrugged at this and saw a running figure about to pass them. He could take the scent of an aroused woman and at the same time the salty scent of tears. Alvanzo getting a hint muttered. "Kids these days..." Saulkur blinked when he got no response and frowned at this. He walked to the spot where he had kept before leaning against the wall and closed his eyes. He waited one moment. He opened his eyes and... Nothing. He sighed and felt that his time had been wasted, and putting his hands in his pockets, began to walk out of the area.

Devant removed himself from the tree and stood properly as the woman finally passed them completely. Golden eyes briefly glanced at the said girl and then responded to Alvanzo. "Are you losing your libido so soon in the game?" Without warning the tree was broken into two upon the force of Alvanzo's punch. "I dare you say that again you damn fox!" The oni spoke back with annoyance and irritation. "Will you two stop acting like infants?" His voice came out as they felt an immense pressure befall on them - and then they turned to look, there they saw... Saulkur, obviously pissed off. Devant was completely indifferent with Alvanzo's obvious rage and the same could be said towards Saulkur's presence. He simply sighed. "Remember your manners, Alvanzo. You would not want to anger Lady Elegia now." Alvanzo gritted his teeth in rage and was about to punch Devant in the face when he stopped inches away remembering how Elegia scolded him once. He could still feel the pain from that event. "Tsk." Clicking his tongue and then looking away in annoyance and anger. Saulkur walked towards them at this - every step he took an immense amount of power washed through them until he stopped before them. "... So, why does she want me to meet you idiots?"

Devant looked at Saulkur from head and toe before releasing another sigh. It would seemed that the Lady Elegia dumped another problem child on his lap. In any case, he was not that intimidated with Saulkur's presence. He had witnessed many kinds like that in the years he had lived. It was nothing special anymore. "Idiots? You call me an idiot!? The damn fox is another thing but---" Alvanzo was reckless and despite knowing the strength of the one in front of him, did not care. It is why he was now under the service of Elegia in the first place. "Don't make yourself look more of an idiot, Alvanzo." Devant interjected cutting Alvanzo off which infuriated the Oni even more. The kitsune picked one of the leaf that landed on his shoulder. "Babysit. It is the precise word that Lady Elegia told me." Saulkur rose a brow as his form became shadowy for a moment as the world around them turned black before he stopped it. "You are talking to King Saulkur right now..."Devant shrugged at this. "I am well-aware of that. I'm not sure about him." He pointed at Alvanzo who was rather distracted about the change of location. "In any case, I am simply repeating the word and intention of the Lady Elegia our employer. If you have anything against that, King Saulkur. Take it with the Archduchess."

"Already did. She's using mouth-wash for a week." He stated. "So what time do I need to get to work?" At that comment, Devant narrowed his eyes in subtle understanding. "I see..." In an instant, the kitsune returned to his rather indifferent self. "I got you a job at a flower shop. It will start tomorrow at 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon." It was quite easy to do such things as humans are quite easy to manipulate. "Super. Sounds fun. You can tell me more about it later... I got 'business' to take care of, so if this is all you needed to tell me..." Devant nodded. "You should be a quick learner. There would no need." He turned his back at him and was about to leave before stopping midway. "Oh yes, the Lady Elegia told me to remind you to keep away from the Renegade headquarters. There is all that is left to say. I suppose." Waving his hand at Saulkur, he began walking again before looking at Alvanzo in disappointment. "Another thing you have a rather tight competition for Lady Elegia... Very tight." With that said, Devant grabbed hold of Alvanzo's hair. "Let''s go doofus."

"Competition? Sounds like lover boy's jealous." Devant gave a chuckle at this. "You really don't know Lady Elegia that well don't you?" Alvanzo interrupted. "What did you call me you damn fox! Let go of my hair!" He threw a right hook at Devant who sidestepped easily. "I grew up with her. You tell me otherwise."He said as he turned his back to him. "Despite that... You don't know why she sides with Master Paimon so easily..." Devant shrugged as Alvanzo retaliated once more. "Don't you play with me you damn fox!" Devant sighed at this. "Just stop making a fool of yourself Alvanzo." He looked at the Oni with a very bored expression. "Hah... What. Are you going to tell me they're married?" Devant looked at Saulkur. "And you grew up with her... You tell me." With that said, Devant disappeared while Alvanzo followed the kitsune in rage. "Come back here you damn fox!" Saulkur shrugged his shoulders and appeared in the same spot he was before. He crossed his arms and leaned against the wall. He waited.... Waited for a sign. He slowly sat down at this, he would wait all day if he had to.

~ Mysterious Attack! Raphael's confusing appearance! ~

Paimon opened his eyes slowly as the liquid-glass sphere floated in front of him once more. "Is it something interesting?" The rather seductive voice of Ophidis reminded him that the female was still accompanying him. Without answering, he raised his hand and a shadow creature was slowly emerging from his palm. After a few moments, it formed into a small bat. The creature had golden eyes and immediately flew away to a destination with a message in tow. "Oh, the so-called do-gooders..." She leaned from behind him to get a closer look at the sphere not minding that her breast were rather rubbing on his head. "Protecting your property?" This time she received an answer as he closed his eyes once more.

"It is an investment."

The group of angels were moving forward, the leader looking around as they moved. "Damnation... Where are we?!" He said as he leaped up and looked around. "Why has someone summoned us to the mortal realm?!" He then landed in front of the group and growled. "I will have answers..." ~ Elegia was currently patrolling her dominion as she saw an all-familiar bat flying towards her. This said creature landed on her shoulder. It was then she heard a voice directly speaking in her head. "Make sure no harm comes to her." After the message was delivered, the bat dissolved in a wave of shadows. "What could this be about... Did information leak out?" She muttered under her breath. Regardless, she had a rather complicated expression on her face as she disappeared in a pile of dusts.

The angel stopped as the others followed suit. "Let us take a break... The mortal realm has somehow weakened us from unleashing our full power!" He sat down with his legs crossed as he closed his eyes, waiting.... ~ Devant was currently reading a book which had the title of How To Deal With Retards. "This is quite interesting..." He noted to no one in particular as he continued to read while walking. He just got out school and was about to attend to some part-time job around the corner when he noticed a rather curious snow falling on the page of his book. Soon, the small grain of snow glowed and came out Elegia's image briefly. "Go and check the Renegade HQ. Angels are near there." Then the snow melted completely. "Hmm... It would be better to stay away... But if I knew better that Oni has rushed head-on." As if on cue, Alvanzo has arrived at the borders of the Renegade Headquarters. His eyes narrowed as he picked up a scent that irritated him and which was second to the stupid fox. "Angels."

The angels soon came into sight again as they all began to rise up into the air. "Alright men.... Prepare to fire! Destroy any demons you find! Interrogate any one of them, and when they don't comply, kill them!" Alvanzo did not waste time as he rushed towards them but before he could reach them a flying book hit the head of angels' leader. "What was that!?" Alvanzo commented looking at the direction of where the book came from and growled in annoyance. "Stupid fox." Devant simply waved at Alvanzo and walked towards the group calmly. The commanding angel growled as he pointed his sword at them. "YOU TWO! Who are you and why have you summoned us to the Mortal Realm?! From the Creator's eyes watching above us, we shall not rest until we are returned to Heaven!" Alvanzo looked at the said angel with a deathly glare. If it was possible to kill someone with it, they would have been all dead. "Shut your damn trap, you sad excuse for a bird!" With that, Alvanzo punched the ground and it immediately split into two as waves could be felt radiating. Devant shook his head at the Oni's outburst. Unlike the Oni, he does not violently rushes. Instead, he was more interested about the word 'summoned'. "Summoned you? That would be very impossible."

"Someone has summoned us to the Mortal Realm!" With that, he pointed his sword down as a beam of light hit the crack caused by Alvanzo, causing the earth to repair itself. "We shall not rest until you two give us the truth! MEN! KILL THEM ALL!" With that, the angels rushed in towards the two demons. "They are so unreasonable and they call themselves angels." Devant commented in a rather bored manner as white globes of fire appeared around him. "Hey Alvanzo." Alvanzo glared at Devant. "What do you want?!" Devant shrugged his shoulders. "Let's see who kills more angels between us." Alvanzo's deep purple eyes burned with vigor. "Bring it on! You'll lose!" With that said, Alvanzo attacked the angels rushing head-on. The oni grabbed one of the angels by the head and crushed its skull while avoiding the attacks in a rather brash manner. As for Devant, he ordered the white fires that surrounded him rushed towards the enemies. "I never lose." The commanding angel furrowed his brows as he prepared himself, meanwhile, his men continued rushing at them in full, despite a majority of them starting to die due to the two's obvious difference in power. Alvanzo punched one of the angels in the gut and effectively created a gaping hole with the innards turned into goo. As for Devant, he had burned most of the angels coming after him to a crisp. Not too long, the two were done. "How many did you kill?" Alvanzo asked. "58." Devant answered and Alvanzo clicked his tongue in annoyance. "Same." The kitsune looked at the commanding angel. "He's the tiebreaker then."

The Commanding Angel's wings spread out then as a holy light surrounded him at this. He then sent out holy water at the two before flying in towards Alvanzo and aiming to pierce his sword through his chest. Alvanzo covered his eyes at the bright light. It was quite irritating to his eyes while Devant stood there unmoved. At the same time, Alvanzo felt a burning sensation on his skin. "Stupid holy water! It still stings in this form!" Despite the distractions, Alvanzo grabbed the sword's blade. It burned his skin but the Oni did not mind as he grabbed the angel by the neck. "This is my win." Then, he crushed the guy's windpipe. "Think again." Devant had his hand pierced at the angel's heart in a through and through. The image standing beside Alvanzo dispersed into flames as it was just an illusion. "Well done you two." Raphael said as he clapped his hands, having appeared sometime during the fight. "Here is the perpetrator." Devant noted as he pulled out his hand from the corpse. "Another angel.. Why am I surrounded by annoying existences." Alvanzo gritted his teeth and dropped the corpse to the ground. He could not believe still that it was a tie. Devant sighed at this and looked at the newcomer. "Interesting show you have here."

"Oh it was not me." Raphael commented as he stood up at this. "It was Heaven's will. More specifically... The Seraphim. I understand you intend to keep one of the seven children alive, yes?" Alvanzo raised an eyebrow at this. "Seraphim. So, that old-wives tale is true?" Devant shrugged his shoulders. "Perhaps." "Of course they do. Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions, Virtues, Powers, Rulers, Archangels... All those and more. What you just fought were the weakest of the groups - the common Angels. The Seraphim want this purple-haired woman dead for an obvious reason..." Alvanzo scratched his head in irritation of hearing information. He was not a very intellectual person. "Stupid heaven hierarchy." Devant ignored this once more. "It would be more logical for all the children to be targeted." "They will be. But she is important. God knows what Paimon intends to do with her... And he wants her dead. So that Hell may fall." Devant narrowed his eyes at this. "And pray tell why are you telling us this?" "I am Raphael of the New Angels... God has abandoned me, so, I want to see Paimon take down His greatest defense." Alvanzo smirked at this. "A payback and you want interest on that as well." Devant closed his eyes momentarily. "Revenge is not really becoming of an angel."

"Ah, where are my manners? I am no longer an angel... I am half angel, half human." Alvanzo rolled his eyes at this. "Still with angel blood. It would be better to kill him." With that said, Alvanzo advanced forward. Devant blocked him with a raised arm. "Do you really think that the Master would let you use him even in a tiniest way?" "Your choice whether to believe me or not..." Devant released a sigh. "Not really... We are just pawns here." Alvanzo crossed his arms over his chest. "We have orders and do that." Devant shrugged. "Believing is not even in our itinerary." "My good sirs, it is up to you whether to tell your master of this or not... So, I will ask again. Do you believe me or not?" Alvanzo narrowed his eyes at Raphael. "I hate angels." Devant smirked at this statement. "You need not worry about our Master being told. He is well-informed. As for ourselves, Alvanzo told you perfectly." "So you choose not to believe?" Devant looked at the book he had thrown and picked it up. "Were you not listening. Believing and even choosing is useless with us. But, we will respond when our orders are compromised. So whatever we think does not matter."

Opening a the book, he began reading once more. "In short, your goals or whatever it is doesn't matter to us. If you get in our way, we'll kill you. If you don't, we'll not bother with your likes." Alvanzo glanced at the book Devant was reading. "Everything depends on the next orders we will receive that is all." ".... So you will consider them a threat then?" Alvanzo read the title of the book and raised an eyebrow. "What is that about?" Devant answered nonchalantly. "About you." Then, glanced at Raphael indifferently. "You really don't listen do you? Have your kind become idiots? Like this guy?" Alvanzo started his outburst once more. "What!? You damn good-for-nothing fox!" As he rushed, Devant threw the book on the oni's head deadcenter. "If they get in conflict with out orders, then we will eliminate them as we see fit." ".... You two keep confusing me. I should of asked someone else... But whatever. I came to deliver the message." With that, he vanished. Alvanzo removed the book from his face and tore it apart. "You will pay for this you fox!" Devant completely ignored the oni's outburst and looked at his forced companion. "Too suspicious." Alvanzo stopped his punch in midair. "What?" Devant shrugged. "Those angels did not know their reason for coming here and he comes telling us they were here to kill her." Alvanzo lowered his hand and remembered the commander angel saying something wanting to know the truth. "I guess. They would not come here completely oblivious to their orders now, do they?" Devant nodded at the oni's insight. "Something fishy is really goin on."

~ Confusing messages and a Game... ~

It was about seven P.M. when Sebastian and Ash returned back to the base... Both of them exhausted as they had blown almost all of the hundred dollars Sebastian was given. Sebastian walked off as he went to rest, meanwhile, a lone figure appeared leaning on a wall near Ash. She put a finger to her own lips as she smirked. "Hush... I know about the situation with you and Sebastian." She said, obviously teasing her as she pushed herself off the wall. "Don't worry... Soon those problems will be gone... My name is S by the way..." She tilted her hat down with a smirk as she shook her head slightly. "Don't forget it, kiddo... And remember... I'm always watching!" Before Ash could even ask her a question, she vanished, leaving Ash alone and possibly confused.

~ One hour later... ~

S would be sitting alone in a private place in The Renegades base. She drank yet another bottle of sake - this being her fifth one as she gulped it down like nothing. She finished it and looked at it as she threw it behind her lazily and let it roll into the growing pile of bottles. "Still nothing." She mumbled angrily. Asmodeus was busy trying to sort out what to do with her sisters now that, Deon was gone. She was pacing around and walking just in front of where S sat. "What do we do now....?" S rose a brow at this. "When did you get here, miss I like to not wear pants?" Asmodeus gave S a glare, and turned back to her pacing with a sigh. "I was just walking by, sheesh." S rose a brow at this. "It was a compliment..." Asmodeus sighed. "Yeah, I know but it's just... Deon's gone so.." S blinked and got up, walking over to her. "Huh... I heard you were happy earlier... Hm, so he really has grown on you seven?" Asmodeus turn to the Succubus, and smirked lightly. "Yeah, he has. He's grown on us a lot, since he's our master and all." S smirked back as she hugged Asmodeus and stroked her hair gently. "Hah. You've grown too soft over the years." Asmodeus sighed, and pulled herself away. "I know, but if it wasn't for him, S, half of us would be dead. He sign the contracts when we were dying... To save us. I have no idea why because he never mentioned it after that, but...." "But?"

"We absorb his sins, steal them, hence why we're so distressed now. I absorb his Lust, Lucifer absorbs his Pride, and yeah. So he has to be a horrible person to keep all of us alive, and now that the Madness is back... It's interfering.." "So pretty much... You need temporary replacements?" "Yeah, I guess. But that might break our contract with Deon, although I think he'd rather have us alive and with others than dead and with him... Heh, where's Luci when you need her, eh? She's the leader...." "Hmm... That reminds me. Call Lucifer, Leviathan, Satan and Mammon here." She walked over and knelt down in front of Asmodeus, putting her hands on her shoulders, smirking. "It's time for a fun game~" "Wha? Sure....". Asmodeus closed her eyes, and suddenly the four sisters appeared next to her or around her. "What is it, S?" inquired Mammon. S quickly returned her smirk to a smile and got up slowly. "It's time for a little game, ladies~ Close your eyes for me..." Lucifer sighed, Satan growled, Asmodeus smirked, and Mammon just did what she was told to, but they all ended up with their eyes closed somehow. "What now, S?" S quickly vanished and all of them but Asmodeus felt her kiss them on the lips for a brief second, leaving them frozen as S appeared back beside Asmodeus and put an arm around her shoulders. "Right... Here's the low-down. Each of you has the same objective. The target is named Sebastian Thomas. You all know what he looks like, so I'll make this easy. Each of you will have a turn and for one minute, you will be with him. Each of you must try to somehow get a kiss on his lips - otherwise, poof, you are out of the game. The prize? The winner gets him for an entire day~" Asmodeus would be catching on by now that this was just a big tease at Lucifer to test her. "Here's a nice little touch for those of you who don't want to play..." She snapped her fingers and suddenly Satan, Leviathan and Mammon would become stiff briefly and zombie-like. "Satan, you are angry at Lucifer and want Sebastian for yourself. Leviathan, you are jealous of Lucifer and Sebastian, and want him for yourself. Mammon, you want Sebastain all for yourself." She snapped her fingers and this all came into play. "With that said... Satan, your turn is first~ You other three - go wait somewhere or some shit like that, I don't care where..."

S watched them all leave as she looked over at Asmodeus. "You going to kiss him after the game's done then?" Asmodeus smirked, and waved her hand. "Naaaaah, he's not my type. I like my guys big, thick and hard~" Asmodeus laughed at her own little joke, and eyed S. "Why ARE you doing this?" S took off her hat and swung her head around a few times as she put the hat down on a table. "I want to test Lucifer. If she can't tell the damn boy - well, I'll have to torture her until then~" She then blushes a little. "How do I look without the hat?" "You look fine, S! And your hair is so silky, too! I envy you sometimes, I do...." Asmodeus smiled a bit and brushed a stray bit of hair from her face happily. "You look fine without the hat, Captain S~" S smiled and walked over, wrapping her arms around Asmodeus' neck. "You know... I could be the temporary replacement for you~" She said with a seductive smile. Asmodeus' cheeks redden a tiny bit, and she spoke again. "Well, I guess that could be arranged, eh S~" Asmodeus smirked and pulled the Succubus closer to her, her lips next to her earlobe. "So, shall we sign the contract?~" S chuckled and backed up with her, leaning her back against a wall as she smirked. "I guess... If you don't mind multi-tasking~" She said before bringing Asmodeus in for a full on kiss. Asmodeus giggled, leaning into the kiss and pushing S against the wall and then pressing herself against S. "Mmmmmmm~"

~ Sebastian's situation... ~

Sebastian would be sitting in a room that they had assigned him to. He was currently looking over some notes as he sighed to himself. It was during this Satan quietly sneaked in and tried to kiss him, but Lucifer came in and grabbed her, throwing her into a wall before then dragging her out. Sebastian looked up as he saw his door close again and he shrugged before going back to reading his notes. Thirty seconds passed by without any interruptions. It was at this Leviathan jumped in towards Sebastian, but was grabbed by Lucifer and slammed into the floor before being dragged out too. Sebastian looked up again as he blinked and saw his door close again. One minute and thirty seconds this time... Mammon turned to Sebastian. "Y-Yes.... Erm, Sebastian. Can I ask you something?" Sebastian blinked as he looked at Mammon. "Oh hey, um... Mammon, right?" Mammon turned to Sebastian. "Y-Yes.... Erm, Sebastian. Can I ask you something?" Sebastian rose a brow. "Sure... I guess?" He asked. Two minutes and twenty seconds... Mammon blushed even more, and took Sebastian's hand. "Y-You know, I.... Ever since you were cuddling up with me when Lucifer snapped... I..."

Suddenly, something slammed into the door, and multiple girls arguing outside could be heard. Sebastian glanced to the door and then looked at her. "... You might want to hurry." Mammon looked to the door too and pulled Sebastian towards her at this to try and kiss him. Sebastian felt his eyes widen as he saw her try, but then felt himself.... Fall off the bed and have her land on top of him. Lucifer sprung into action, tackling Mammon off of Sebastian and then quickly crawling back over to him. "Sorry about this, it's S' idea of fun.." Sebastian sat up as he blinked. Three minutes. "....What? Who?" Lucifer spoke with urgency. "Just shut up and kiss me!" Sebastian blushed at this. "W-WHAT?! M-my first kiss?! Are you crazy or something?" "It's either me or one of them, Sebastian!" Sebastian blinked as he looked at her. "......" He sighed and grabbed her shoulders, pulling her over as he pulled her into a kiss. Lucifer moaned lightly as her lips connected to his, and she wrapped her arms around him and began to pull him closer against her.

~ ~ ~

Sebastian was blushing and pushed her off. Several minutes had passed of them continuing to kiss. Sebastian had wanted his first kiss to be that of a special one, and he... Well, just got it. "What's wrong, Sebastian?" Sebastian got up and dusted himself off, gasping for air. "Seebaaaastiaaan? Earth to Sebastian. Are you living?" "Shut up! I just.... I'm not ready for that, okay?! When I meant special, I didn't mean THAT!" "......." Sebastian sat down on the bed and put his face in his hands. "You never used to yell at me, Sebastian. Maybe you're finally growing up. Getting past me, eh?" Sebastian pulled his hands away and got up, grabbing her wrists. "I -- I'm sorry... I just...." He hugged her tightly at this. "... I'm stressed." "You're not the only one...". Lucifer hugs Sebastian back. Sebastian hugged her tighter. ".... I'm so sorry..." "I don't want an apology, Sebastian. I shouldn't have pushed you" Sebastian looked at her face, blushing as he did. "... I do have one thing to admit though." "What is it?" Sebastian kissed her lips at this. "Mmmmm...." Sebastian pulled his face away slowly from hers. "... I -did- have a massive crush on you when we were little." Lucifer laughed. "Oh, I knew~" Sebastian sighed. "Figures..." Lucifer pulled Sebastian close, and grinned. "I still love ya, Seb~". Sebastian blushed at this. ".... I -- I can tell..." He stammered. ".... What does this mean then? A-are we together now or something because we kissed?" Lucifer smirked at Sebastian. "Iunno, do you want to be together?". Sebastian rubbed the back of his head. "... M-maybe."

Lucifer look at Sebastian. Then she had a fit of some sorts and fell to the floor. Sebastian blinked and got on his knees. "A-are you okay?" Lucifer rocketed up and locked her lips with Sebastian's, pulling him down to the ground with her. "So Sebastian, anything you wanna ask me?". Sebastian blushed at this. "... Y-yeah.... Um.... W-will you train me tonight?" Lucifer thought for a moment, then spoke. "Sure thing, Seb~". Sebastian smiled. "Here's your payment~" He said as he brought his lips down on hers, closing his eyes. Lucifer grinned, and pushed him away after a few moments. "Horrible, horrible payment, Sebby-poo~". She let out a chuckled and hugged him tight. Sebastian smiled and rested his forehead on hers, hugging her back just as tight. "... Thank you.... Lucy." Lucifer grinned, and spoke. "Just like old times, eh?". Sebastian smiled. "But a little better~" He kissed her again quickly. ".... I also have to tell you... About Rob." "What about Rob?". "On the night I left the orphanage.... We had an argument." "About what?". ".... About him.... And me." "About your Friendship?" ".... Something like that. Let me explain. You see...."


~ War on Europe... ~

On a television screen all over Europe was of the WDL... On it a man in a suit speaking out loud to everyone watching. "... My people, it is my honor to present the top of the elite, please... Give it up for a Paladin, representing for Angel's absence... The leader of the Paladin's himself!!!" With this, the man moved and a paladin stepped on screen. Angel looked up from his screen after hearing his name, and his eyes widened. "Him!?" The leading Paladin came on and waved to the people. He answered a few questions - mainly about the concerns of the demon outbreak, the Renegades and a few minor questions. He explained about how Angel came into power - how it was Arthur's time to retire, how the demon outbreak was a test, but then....

The screen went blank. And all of Europe was silent for a few moments...

Angel, who was busy being very amused by how the man was glorifying him, blinked in shock as the screen went black. "What the? How- What!? Did somebody move the antenna!?" "Greetings, humanity." At this, a red cross with a single eye in it's center appeared with a white background to it. The Revolution of Hell had taken over. "I am Balarus of Kallos. And I have taken over your primitive television's in order to speak out to you all... I hope you are listening, Angel."

Angel nodded weakly, then shook his head. "GET ME THE PHOENIX!" "Your so called protectors, the WDL, are liars. Arthur was murdered in cold blood, I really did break out of that damn prison with a few others and, well... I will personally kill Angel in front of the whole world." Deon smirked. "I'll help!" And then Angel slapped him. "I have gathered an army of demons and they are marching. Marching around my base, preparing for a war. In two days, I will destroy the WDL with them. My elite group is preparing themselves, and they will attack your primitive towns tomorrow. I know what this means. And yes..."

"Hell has just declared war."

Deon whistles, grinning lightly. "Hey Angel, I bet you're TOTALLY not gonna make me your bodyguard, are ya?". Angel smirked. "Nope, I'm locking you back in the Dungeons". "Prick" The screen turned to show something horrifying then... "Help me, Angel... Please..." A Paladin spoke out, bloody and injured as he was tied to a cross, his arm weakly reaching out to the camera just a few feet in front of him. Angel scoffed. "If you're in that situation you deserve to die!". Deon slapped him. The Paladin's arm was suddenly slammed against the cross as he screamed out in pain as a spike slowly came out of his chest, his blood dripping all over the cross as he gagged and choked. Then a figure came out and smashed his head against the cross and it broke in half - a personal insult to anyone religious. Deon snickered, and Angel just watched. The figure then turned and glared at the screen. He pulled his hood down to reveal his face - Kallos had done it. "Let this be a warning." He said and grabbed the flag of the country - throwing it on the cross as he nodded to Eppenos, who stepped on the screen and burned all three things - the man's body, the cross and the flag.

Deon let out a laugh and Angel made a face that said what the fuck? "Europe will fall. And Hell will rise... If you want to have ANY funny moments... Take a good look at this." Kallos grabbed the camera and moved it to show Angel's relatives bodies, all hanging on crosses. Angel glared. "They're useless to me anyway" Eppenos burned them just like the rest, and then showed something worst of all... A figure with a bag over the head, struggling to break free of the ropes binding the person to the chair. "I won't tell you who this is, but trust me when I say... All hell will break loose when she dies. Now.... One more thing." He said as he drew his sword and thrusted it through the camera. The screen then turned back to the Paladin, who had seen all of that.... Stunned, shocked, confused... He couldn't even blink. He had to be dragged away. Then the screens turned to something else... But everyone's reaction was the same. Completely. Stunned.

Deon watched as everything went on, the Madness threatening to burst out of him again as it went on and on. Angel on the other hand simply watched, grinding his teeth in anger. The Puppeteer sat at her throne, observing the acts of hate and rage. But not from a Television as a normal person would, oh no. She was watching them personally, the smell of burning flesh wafting throughout her throne room as the scenes ended and she closed the tear. She turned to Luna and Ronove, who were watching on a Television, and smirked. "How.... interesting~" Michael stopped as he turned to a screen near by to see the news being broadcasted. "..... What.... Just happened?" Rin turned to the screen, but not before getting a glimpse of Aurora, her eyes going wide. Aurora simply smiled and waved politely, before looking to the screen too. When all was said and done, Rin was covering her mouth with her hand and coughing. Aurora simply sighed and spoke. "Such a fool, Balarus". Rin coughed again and spoke to Michael. "They couldn't just kill Angel could they!?" "... Balarus is cunning. He knows Angel will have no choice but to accept his challenge. Also... Did you see who was the one burning the bodies?" Aurora spoke. "Indeed". Rin simply nodded, sitting down. "Who was it then, Aurora?"

"They call him... Eppenos, of Flames. He is... the son of Brenhin if I recall.... He burned my old Garden to Ashes for not giving him what he wanted. I will pay him back for that" ".... Right, that's what I feared. Back to Balarus though... Angel will be panicking inside right now. Arthur would of calmly thought of how to find and trap Balarus while still humiliating him on television. Angel? ..... If he doesn't accept, the entire world will see him as a coward and unfit to rule." "They will see the man for what he truly is, then." ".... Angel has only one solution... Accept the challenge and destroy his enemy. Even at the cost of his own army." Aurora smiled. "Balarus certainly has grown up. He's planned this well, but what shall the Renegades be expected to do, I wonder?~" ".... I have no choice now... I will send the two teams of children out to find Balarus and destroy him before this whole mess starts." "Oh? I thought you would bargain for Deon. Although I'm assured he already has a plan~". Aurora smirked and twirled her now closed parasol. ".... Deon would of hated himself for that. Rin, prepare plans for tomorrow morning. WDL reports say that Bellfoar, Chill and the Jello Demon have been sighted in a nearby town. Tomorrow is our only chance..." With that, Michael walked away.

Rin nodded at Michael and then turned to Aurora. "Why are you here, anyway?". Aurora smirked. "Oh, just a favor to an incarcerated friend~ S looked at a screen nearby to see the report. ".... Huh.... People are too serious these days." S looked up at Asmodeus. "What do you think?" Asmodeus sighed. "Well damn.... That ruined my mood....". She looked at it again and spoke. "Well, to be honest Angel's a dick. Only problem is that Deon's at the WDL too. What if they take him when they're done?". S snickered. "Dick." Asmodeus giggled. "In your mouth~" S snickered. "... I'm still going to win~" "Oh, no you're not!" "Oh baby, I can~" Asmodeus grabs S and pushes her into the nearby wall, her lips slamming against hers.

~ A response to war... ~

Raphael opened the door to Angel's office, only to gasp as he saw Angel standing, awake, looking out the window. He quickly closed the door, to see only one candle was lit on his desk. "Sir, what are you doing up so late? You should be sleeping! Not up and tiring yourself out!" Angel turned to the angel and sighed. "The Phoenix still hasn't admitted to anything regarding Kallos' plan, but he seems to know something I must find out. I haven't been able to sleep because of it. He treats my interrogation like a game and never gives in. It's... It's unnerving how he is". Angel rubbed his forehead. "In a few days, Kallos will be here to kill me and no doubt he will destroy a large portion of this Academy while doing it..." Raphael nodded. "Ah yes, I do recall hearing about this sire. I am terribly sorry to hear about your relatives dying." Angel growled. "I don't care about them! If I die who will lead the WDL!? Nobody will, nobody deserving of leading it, in any case! This is my rightful place, I got here fair and square and I will not let any idiotic Demon take that from me!". Angel turned and grasped the phone on his desk, picking it up and dialing. "Yes, Daniel. Ready Project Beta. Good. It needs to be in perfect condition" Raphael nodded at this. "I shall not question this Project Beta, but... If I may make one tiny, tiny suggestion, m'lord?" Angel looked towards Raphael and nodded.

"Tonight, lead everyone in the surrounding towns into the WDL. When they go to attack tomorrow - poof. They will find no one, and you will be looked up to as a savior for planning ahead such brilliance!" Angel was silent for the moment before nodding. "Raphael, I shall send out the orders as soon as I can. Ready the men for battle though. If Kallos does in fact attack this academy, then we must be ready for him". Angel motioned for Raphael to leave, but spoke again. "Raphael... Ready the Phoenix." Raphael smirked as he nodded. "Of course sire - if I may ask... How do you plan on getting the Phoenix to obey you?" Angel smirked. "Oh, I'll have my ways" Raphael nodded and bowed. "Of course." He said before leaving the room. Once the door closed he looked around before smirking and walked off whistling.

"The game is set, m'lord... The attack will take out both parties present."

"And The Renegades?"

"No doubt they will intervene when you want them to sire."

"Excellent work, my little half angel spy... Make sure everything goes according to plan... If Kallos shall fall taking Angel's life, so be it."

"Of course... Revolutionary Leader of Hell."

~ Sebastian's training Part II! ~

Sebastian looked around as he rose a brow. "What now?" He said, looking behind him to see the television screen as he turned his body around. ".... What.... The...?" Lucifer turned to the television too. "Wha...?" Sebastian looked at her. ".... I think this means we're running out of time, doesn't it?" "...Yep" Sebastian gritted his teeth. "Then come on... You have to make me transform somehow! .... How would Deon say how one learned to control they're demon form?" "Erm, well... They'd have to transform into it and.... Ugh, I don't know! He doesn't have on himself yet, he's just that powerful... Maybe ask Rin?" "How do I contact other people from a distance in this place?!" "Wait, I know!" Lucifer stood up and smirked. "Basically you have to go into your demon form and then keep your consciousness! You have to realize that you're in your Demon Form, AND then you need to try and grasp what you're doing." ".... How do I go into it first?" "Well, you go into it when you're angry, so I suggest make yourself angry then think of things to calm you down?" Sebastian sighed. "Hit me then! As hard as you can!" "You really want me to?...I might hurt you..." "Chill stabbed me last time... That was how he made me do it. It was the realization that I was going to die with regrets... I have to feel that again!" "F-Fine...." Lucifer grabs Sebastian, pinning him to the floor and squeezing her hands around his neck until he can't breathe.

Sebastian choked and tried to move until he fell limb for a split second... Then, like a bad omen... Lucifer was blasted away by a great force as Sebastian rose up on to his feet. His ears became pointy, his bat-like wings returned, an aura of fire now surrounded him, his eyes had gone demon-like and were now red, and his teeth were fangs. He let out a roar at her. Lucifer walk over to Sebastian and slapped him before pulling him close to her. Sebastian rose a hand to smack her, but... Was stopped as something started to overcome him. He struggled as he let out a violent roar, pushing her away as his aura of fire started to grow too intense to handle. Lucifer fell to the floor, rubbing her arm because it was burned. "Ouch. Sebastian?" Sebastian's flames soon turned to a darkish blue, his body undergoing another change as his power was increasing dramatically... The entire room was starting to shake as Sebastian got down on all fours, his form continuing to change rapidly. Lucifer stood against the shaking of the room. She looked over to Sebastian, and spoke. "If Deon was here...." Sebastian's blue aura suddenly went away in an instant - a loud boom going around as he slowly stood up... Now back in his demon form as he smiled at her weakly. ".... H-hey." Lucifer looked at Sebastian, stunned. Then she grinned. "You DID IT!". She leaped at Sebastian and wrapped her arms around him in joy. "YES!"

"Ow, ow, ow, owwww......" He mumbled. He patted her on the back as he smiled weakly still. "Did I miss the party?" "What party?" "Never mind..." Sebastian returned to normal as he panted. "... Do you feel.... Weird?" "No.... Why?" He looked at his hands. ".... I feel..... Different.... Like I'm suddenly lighter.... Stronger.... Like I have more.... Control now." "That's because you did what you needed to. You gained control of your Demon form now!" Sebastian crouched down for a moment. Then he jumped up into the air by seven feet, spinning around in ten flips as he did before landing down on his feet. Lucifer grinned. "You're catching up to Deon, Seb~" Sebastian grinned and got a serious look on his face as he got into stance. Then he vanished and she could see him, racing around the room at super speed. He continued this as he raced around fifteen laps in just a few minutes before stopping before her. "I told you..." He said as he caught his breath. "Faster... Lighter.... Stronger..." He put his hand out as two objects were caught under his control and suddenly were pulled to him and began to spin around him. "More in control!" He then quickly sent them back to where they were as he grinned. "I never could do that before..." Lucifer smirked. "Oh man, you just took a level in Badassery!"

Sebastian then entered into his demon form - this time his wings just appeared, his eyes not turning red as they shifted into a demonic look. His fangs appeared to be shorter then they originally were, and his ears were less pointy. He then looked at her. "Punch me!" Lucifer smirked and whacked Sebastian across the face. Her fist stopped as it hit his face, his skin now looking harder and rougher for a brief moment before he smacked her arm away. "Come on - keep 'em coming!" Lucifer grinned, repeatedly slamming her fist into numerous parts of Sebastian's body with gusto. Every time her fists were stopped by Sebastian's hardened skin - this time he kept it up instead of putting it away until she was done punching him. Only then did he take it away. And with a wink, he blended in with his surroundings. Lucifer looked around in shock. "W-Whoa, you can do this now!?" He reappeared behind her as he smirked. "Invisibility... I was told once by a certain demon that I had the power over fire, invisibility and to make my skin harder like a shield's... But he said I couldn't obtain them..." He stopped to make three fireballs appear in front of him as he put his hands in his pockets and used his improved telekinesis in his demon form let them spin around his body at a fast rate. "... Until I learned control." Lucifer grinned. "Nice tricks you have there, Sebastian."

Sebastian pulled his hands out of his pockets as he slammed his hands above his head together - letting the fireballs vanish and his form return to normal. ".... Twice... That's my limit, huh? I guess I'm ready for tomorrow... I'll need my gloves to be enhanced though." "Oooh, snazzy outfit you'll be having~". Suddenly, a knock came at the door to the room, and Lucifer went and opened it. Standing there was Aurora, a smirk on her face. "Invitations have arrived~" With that, the Flower Youkai handed Lucifer two envelopes, and strode off down the Hall. "What the?" Sebastian blinked as he jumped over, landing by her as he looked at them. ".... When does it say we need to be there by?" Lucifer handed Sebastian one letter. "It's been personalized. Someone knows things about us." Sebastian took it and opened it, looking at it as he blinked. ".... Son of a bitch!" He said as he put it back in and slammed it on a table, the table almost breaking. Lucifer was eyeing her letter, when her face fell. "How did they....?"

Sebastian walked over to a screen at this and began to touch it until he brought out the WDL's wanted list. "... HA! Number 19 - idiots. I should be 17 now~" "Don't get too cocky Sebastian. Your letter had something on it that only you should know too, right?" ".... Uh, yeah, something like that." He was trying to get his mind off it as he looked over the WDL list. Lucifer turned to Sebastian. "Watchya looking for, Mr 'I'm so tough I can take on anything now'?". Lucifer smirked. Sebastian indicated for her to come closer. Lucifer walked over to Sebastian. "Hm?" Sebastian put an arm around her shoulders and held her close as he pointed to a profile on the screen. "This guy.... Let's take him on and bring him back!" "Blaze, eh? She's a woman, you know...." "...... WHAT?"

~ Sebastian and Lucifer V.S. Blaze??? ~

Sebastian walked to the town next to Lucifer as he looked over at her. He smiled as he looked forward - he was now in his modified gear, which didn't look all that different from when he fought Drayne. "Soo, how will we know she's --" He stopped as he saw a red glow appear from the town. ".... Never mind." Lucifer smirked. "Let's dance with her, shall we?" Sebastian smirked. "Let's~" He walked into the town with her. As the two found the girl standing there, her hands lit on fire, she spoke. "Sebastian and Lucifer, correct? Let's get this over with, shall we? I've always had this BURNING desire to meet you~" Sebastian rose a brow. "Are you a mind reader?" He asked calmly. Blaze grinned. "Nope, my Mistress just knows you very well~ She knows more than anybody else does, Seb~" "Wait..." Sebastian narrowed his eyes. ".... Do you know Lunatic Red Eyes?" Blaze grinned. "Maybe, maybe not. I might tell you if you beat me~". Blaze grinned, throwing a wall of fire in the direction of Sebastian and Lucifer. It was only a few seconds later that.... "We're surrounded by a ring of fire. There's no escape". "..... Hm. Interesting. Tell me, what rank are you?" "Heh, I'm always holding back, ya know... In reality, I'm beyond those... 'Ranks'.". ".... I meat like E, D, C, or whatever the heck you are." "I told you, I'm above them. Although most people seem to think I'm an..... A".

"So, a Demon Queen, huh?" He looked over at Lucifer and held out his right arm. ".... Weapon form, please." Lucifer smirked, turning into a small spear of light that quickly grew solid, falling into Sebastian's hand and fitting there perfectly. "Let's do this, Seb!" Sebastian smirked and held out the spear in front of him, making it face horizontally. ".... Tell me, miss Queen of Fire.... Do you know of what I can do with this weapon?" Blaze simply grinned and looked at Sebastian. "Of course I do. She used to belong to my friend, after all." Sebastian grew a serious look on his face. "... That wasn't what I was referring to..." He said as the winds began to pick up with a strange eerie feeling to them as the fires around them changed to a shade of purple, growing up and becoming wild as Sebastian's power began to rise. Blaze smirked. "You're not very bright, are you?.... Have you forgotten all about the Phoenix already?". "... I know Deon.... But what about him?" He asked. Lucifer spoke again. "Wait... You know Deon!?". Blaze grinned. "Oh yes. I do. We're both of Fire so it's only natural. But... He also told me that you would win. I'm betting I can prove him wrong!". Blaze suddenly lashed out, flames encircling the entire area and sending unbearable heat all around them.

Sebastian closed his eyes. ".... You are a fool.... Because I learned.... How to control my power!" As he shouted this out, all the flames that were made by Blaze vanished as an aura of fire briefly appeared around Sebastian as his appearance began to change. Blaze smirked. "Sebastian. I am aware" Suddenly Blaze's Demon form vanished, leaving a human girl standing in her place. "Call me.... Mokou" Sebastian's aura of fire vanished as now he was in his demon form - his bat-like wings spreading out, his ears and teeth changing, the spear in his hand now having red hair around the neck of it to where the blade connected with the rest of the spear as it looked exactly like that of a flame's. The blade also would feel hotter as he furrowed his brows. ".... Mokou? Lucifer, I need info here." Lucifer stayed silent until... "N-No way.... You... You're!-" She was cut off as something burst from the ground, a condensed blade of flame shooting right at Sebastian. "Ha! You let your guard down, scrap metal!" Lucifer growled. "Shut up! What's happened to you!?" Blaze just grinned. "I'm just having a little fun, is all~" Sebastian furrowed his brows as he vanished from sight, letting the sword of flames pass by as he reappeared by Blaze's side. "Now that wasn't fun."

Blaze spun around, sending a boot straight into Sebastian's face before leaping backwards and flipping into the air. Sebastian rose up Lucifer as he blocked the kick with it, but was sent sliding back as he stopped himself and look up at Blaze. He concentrated as when she would land, a car would be sent flying down at her. Blaze landed, looking up just in time to see a car heading her way. She didn't have time to duck so she threw herself onto her back and stayed there until the car passed, rolling backwards when it was clear. Sebastian furrowed his brows as he pushed the damaged car forward at her. "Really, is this it?" Blaze leaped over the car an towards Sebastian, and as soon as she was close her arm turned into a blade and slashed him across the chest. "Ha!" Sebastian felt his clothes being ripped through easily as he stayed there for a few seconds... Before smirking. If she looked closely at the cut hole, she would see no cut was made - only a mark against his hardened body. His skin returned to normal as he used super speed to enhance his speed as he thrusted Lucifer at her left shoulder. Blaze barely had time to dodge, and Lucifer caught her in the shoulder lightly. "Heh, not bad kiddo, Deon was right about you!" Blaze flipped backwards before landing and changing her right arm fully into a blade. "So, any questions you need me to answer?" Before Sebastian could speak, Lucifer did.

"How did you get your Human Form back, Mokou?" "I'm curious how you know Deon and know Lucifer..." He furrowed his brows as he tried to remember... Mokou grinned, before using Sebastian's distraction to tackle him to the floor. "You want to know, do you? Why is that? Do you even care? Right now Deon's rotting away in a Dungeon being forced into god knows what because he cares for you and the other Children!" "SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" At this, a ball of fire was sent colliding into Blaze's chest. Blaze was sent flying back, flipping in the air a few times before landing on her feet and watching the wound heal. "You know what Deon IS ,right?" Sebastian got up to his feet quickly as he watched the wound heal easily. "....A phoenix of sorts. Are you the same or are you just some kind of advanced fire demon that I'm not aware of?" "Maybe you'll find out later, hmm? Like I said, if you beat me I'll answer your questions" Blaze grinned and waggled her finger, indicating for Sebastian to attack her. Sebastian instead took this time to slowly get into a stance. ".... Mind telling me some things here Lucifer?" "Oh yes Lucifer, please do~" Lucifer spoke to Sebastian. "Waddaya want to know?" [color=#8000BF]"Who the hell is Mokou?" "......... He wouldn't want me to tell you" "..... Is that how it is?" "Wha?" Sebastian slowly aimed Lucifer at Blazye, a fire for battle appearing in his eyes.

"Your father was a great man Sebastian... But you are not nearly as powerful as him. In order to do this, you will have to learn to control your form later on, and when you do... You must bring out that which is your father's blood in you. For you see, your family has always yearned for battle. But they can not do this without one thing... The willpower to fight. If you can not achieve that which your father has passed down on to you.... You will die." Blaze looked at Sebastian oddly. "What?" Sebastian remained still, and Lucifer could feel something coursing through her suddenly.... Sebastian's strength. "Are you willing to trust me?" "Sebastian. I've been willing for a long, long time" "..... Then lend me your strength, as I am doing the same with you." Lucifer laughed. "Let's do this then. Let's show this chick what we're made of!" Suddenly, riveting power coursed through Sebastian. "Sebastian, we can beat her" Sebastian got a serious face and used his super speed to dissapear. A few seconds later, five Sebastian's would be seen running around Blaze. Blaze simply grinned, sending out a wall of fire that encompassed the entire area they were in. All five Sebastian's vanished at this as the real one appeared above Blaze, pointing Lucifer down at her as he sent down a ball of fire on her. Blaze flipped out of the way just in time to miss the fireball, sending her own straight at Sebastian and turning her arm into a blade again.

"I... I can't let him down. Even if...." Sebastian thrusted down Lucifer at this, thrusting the tip of her blade into the ball to stop it as he struggled at this. He gritted his teeth as he let out a battle cry, blasting out fire out of Blaze's as he landed down on his feet and charged forward at her. Blaze look up and shouted, throwing herself forward and shifting into her blade form, aiming straight at Sebastian.... Sebastian stopped for a brief moment as he spun around Lucifer and waited, holding her in a stance as he watched the blade coming down at him. ".... Wait for it...." Blaze shot forward at blinding speeds, aiming right for Sebastian's heart. She'd burn straight through him if she had to! "Yaaaaaa!"
"..... Wait for it..........Now." He said as he used Telekinesis to briefly halt Blaze in place, sending enough force into her to stop her long enough for him to move Lucifer and then use her to smack away Blaze. Before Sebastian could do anything however, a hand reached out and grabbed Blaze, and a figure shortly followed, flipping straight over Sebastian with Blaze in hand and slashing him down his back before landing far away, crouching. "You've wasted enough time here, Blaze"

~ Clue to Omega's Identity I! Three users of fire meet! ~

Sebastian fell down on to a knee as he gritted his teeth. "Shit, shit, shit, shit, shiiiiiitttt. I wish I could regenerate now." Sebastian forced himself to stand as he turned around to look at the figure. ".... And you are?" The figure stood up, the mask covering it's face shifting into it's usual shape, the pure black robes covering the rest of them blowing slightly in the wind. "Who am I, you ask? Have you heard of.... Omega?" "While training, we saw what you did in Tokyo... You're pretty fast, I'll give you that." "What a sight..." A figure said as he stepped down on the broken car Sebastian had used earlier, spinning around a sword in his hand as he looked at the four of them. "... I get to meet the strange Omega and I get to capture the target." With that said, Eppenos of Flames pointed Baphomet in they're direction. "Tell me. Who's flame is the strongest among us?" Using his free hand, Eppenos created a small red ball as he fired it at Sebastian. Sebastian's eyes widened as he quickly move to the side of it, thinking he had avoided it. But then, he felt incredible heat build up behind him, and looking back...

.... He watched as an entire building blew up in flames. The top half of it being completely turned into ashes while the bottom half's pieces were sent flying in directions. "Lucifer.... I need info. Who the heck -- no.... What the heck IS this guy?!?!" "Which one?" "THE ONE WHO JUST SHOT THAT AT US?!?!?!" "Oh do go on and tell him." Eppenos spoke and walked forward, the car behind him bursting out in flames as Eppenos neared them. ".... I've been dying to meet you, Sebastian Thomas." Omega simply stood still, observing the scene. Lucifer spoke. "Eppenos of Flames...Shit. He's Brenhin's kid I think" "Brenhin?! I'm not meeting that asshole again!" "Ahh, so you did meet my father in hell..." Eppenos spoke and drew out another sword. "I believe you will know this by it's name... The Wandering Blade." "Aaah, finally. I can smell Phoenix blood already!" "Wandering Blade... Is the boy strong enough to be your new host?" "NEW HOST?" "Hmmm, he is... manageable..." "Very well.... You can have him then." With that, Eppenos threw The Wandering Blade at Sebastian at blinding speeds. Sebastian could only watch in horror as it was getting closer then he could avoid or block...

Suddenly, Omega grasped the Wandering Blade before it could hit Sebastian. "Eppenos of Flames. You must not interfere with us" The Wandering Blade's black tendril lashed out at Omega, but they found no safe place to grasp. "Wandering Blade. You are now mine" Omega then pushed the Wandering Blade to Sebastian's neck and pointed Blaze at Eppenos. "Leave. Now." Eppenos chuckled at this. "Incorrect, Mr. Omega." Snapping his fingers, Omega felt fire explode in his hand as The Wandering Blade was now flying through the air while being on fire! It quickly landed back in Eppenos' hand as the flames quickly faded - not a single burn mark could be seen on it. "I have my orders... You will not intervene, Mr. Omega. Unless you want to take our fight elsewhere?" Omega simply remained still. "My Mistress does not like interruptions, Eppenos. You are currently interrupting." Eppenos stabbed The Wandering Blade into the ground. "Very well... Let us go elsewhere, but.... I will leave the boy with something. If you shall win against it, you may take it back to your silly little base. But if it wins, well... You know the outcome." And with that, Eppenos vanished and reappeared in front of Omega, a fiery portal tearing opening in front of him as Eppenos forced his knee into his back and roughly sent him into the portal, following by Eppenos being sucked into the portal into hell as it vanished.

After this, fire appeared all over The Wandering Blade as a skeleton rose up out of the ground. It let out a dangerous howl as fire covered it's form, the skeleton taking grip of The Wandering Blade as multiple black tendrils covered the skeleton until it formed into thick black skin like hardened lava. It's eyes then glowed - The Wandering Blade then took control. "..... Shit, what just happened?" "What just happened?... Heheheeheh... HAHAHAHAHAHA! Your death has just begun!" "Lucifer, he's about to come at us! WHAT DO I DO?!" Before the Wandering Blade could react, a portal the same as the one Luna appeared from appeared, and a blade cleaved the skeleton in two. "How amusing." "Shush, Blaze" "Make me!" "....." "S-Sorry...." Sebastian blinked as he saw The Wandering Blade fall to the ground, he swore he heard it cursing like a mad woman. Out of the portal stepped Omega, followed by Blaze before the portal closed behind them. "I mean come on, did he actually think he could touch you? What an idiot!" Sebastian walked over to them as he blinked. "... Um.... Thank you, I guess? I don't know how to feel right now because my back is bleeding." Sebastian looked down and lightly kicked The Wandering Blade, who cursed at him with many repeated curse words being thrown in the mix. ".... Do I really have to take this thing back with me?"

".... Wait, that guy -- Eppenos or whatever.... What happened to him? Is he coming back?!" Omega looked at Sebastian, and shook his head. "That is up to him, not us." Sebastian sighed and looked down at the Wandering Blade, then back up at them. "... Can I borrow some sort of magic sheath or something to carry that thing with? I don't trust it that much." Blaze smirked. "We still have a fight to finish, don't we?" She suddenly shifted to her blade form and Omega grabbed her, pointing her at Sebastian. "I thought you guys were leaving!!" Omega vanished momentarily, slamming Blaze onto Lucifer. "Come on kid! Make your older brother proud!", shouted Blaze. "OLDER BROTHER?!" He shouted as he was sent flying back, stopping himself at the last moment. "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?!" He vanished and sneakily took The Wandering Blade, who's black tendrils threatened to engulf him. "Screw off." Was his only response as he charged at Omega with both Lucifer and The Wandering Blade, using both of them to send multiple slashes at Omega. Omega simply let the slashes hit him, and Blaze laughed. "Is that it!?" Sebastian went into super speed mode and doubled the amount of slashes he sent. Omega simply stood, waiting for Sebastian to stop. "Pathetic..."

~ Omega's Relentless Pursuit! ~

Sebastian pointed the sword at his chest and Lucifer at his head as he blasted out two fire balls into him, aiming to tear off some of his body parts as he did this. The fireballs shot towards Omega, but just before they hit they... went straight through him. "Is this all you have, Child?" Sebastian panted as he exited out of his demon form and fell on his knees, putting Lucifer beside him as he forced her to transform back. "... Stay here." He mumbled as he slowly got up. "Yo kid, just stay down man! Hahahahaha!" "SHUT UP!" He shouted as he stabbed the Wandering Blade into his chest, and backed away a few steps as he watched the black tendrils come out. He had no idea whether his plan was going to work or not - but maybe this could distract him for a bit... Possibly. Omega simply grabbed the blade and pulled it out of him. "It went straight through me. Because I wanted it to." Omega then threw the blade at the ground with enough force to send it into it up to the hilt. "Whoa..." He said and ran over, grabbing the hilt as he watched the black tendrils break off and land elsewhere... He slowly pulled it out as he looked it, feeling it shake as he gritted his teeth. Then he put an arm around Lucifer as he vanished with her, reappearing a few feet behind Omega as he used the Wandering Blade to cut through a tree near by, letting it fall in the path that was in front of them as he ran off with Lucifer and The Wandering Blade in hand...

"Omega.... Wait.... I saw Omega.... Isn't he in Deon's spot now?" Lucifer sighed, "Yeah, and his companion...." Sebastian stopped by a tree as he sat near it, panting as he looked at the trail of blood he left behind. "... Fucking hell." He said as he kept a firm grip on the weakened Wandering Blade. "Eppenos is 9... And this thing, this Wandering Blade... Is 32.... Call Rin now, tell her to -- uggghhh.... Send someone to bring us to her! NOW!" Suddenly, the tree blocking the path was thrown into the air and slammed into a building nearby. Omega stood there, Blaze beside him and grinning. "Sebastian Thomas. We are not finished yet." Suddenly, Omega was grabbing Lucifer from him and hoisting her above them with one of his tendrils. "She will die if you...." "If I try to run? I know... I'm not moving." He said as he stood up, getting into a stance with the Wandering Blade. ".... Come." He said. Suddenly, Omega grabbed his mask, and sunk down to one knee. "W-What the..... U-Uuugh.... N-No...." Blaze turned to him. "Omega, what's wrong!?"

Sebastian used his super speed at this and spinning around, he sliced through the tendril as he caught Lucifer using his free arm and backed away a little with her, keeping the Wandering Blade pointed at Omega. Suddenly, another tendril shot out at Sebastian, followed by another and then another, until there were at east twenty tendrils around them. Blaze had kneeled down next to Omega and was shaking him. "Hey, Hey! Keep calm, Omega! if you fail she'll kill us all!" Sebastian kept slicing at them, but they kept growing and growing. He gritted his teeth as more then fifty shot out at him as he prepared for it, until...

... All of them were suddenly sliced, the parts cut off burning away into nothing as a figure landed in front of Sebastain, a bright light covering him as he held a shield in his right hand, a sword in his left and he wore battle armor made for Angels. His wings spread out as feathers came flying down over the scene. "Omega, right?" The half angel asked him. Blaze looked up in shock, and glared. "Michael, right?" Omega stood, thanking Blaze and staring at Michael. "You are...... Michael A Malachim..." Suddenly, from around the corner strode Aurora. "Oh, so it's you two, is it? Ahh, how funny that I would end up observing a fight between you two~" "I am Michael A. Malachim... And as guardian over these two, I advise you to leave. Or..." He shifted his right foot back as his sword changed into a spear, and he pointed it at the two. "... I will be forced to fight you and Blaze. To the death." Omega spoke. "You are a fool then." Blaze scoffed. "Yeah, yeah. 'To the Death' sounds fun and all, but you look boring." Michael furrowed his brows. "Lucifer... Cover the boy and yourself. Now!" Lucifer nodded, grabbing Sebastian and pulling him behind the tree, but Aurora stood in front of them, opening her Parasol. "Nothing will get past this". Omega and Blaze simply stood there. Michael stabbed his spear into the ground as he remained where he was, looking up as he nodded before looking back at them.

".... Heaven's Guidance."

And out of no where, a giant ray of light came out of the clouds, slamming down on the three as a bright light covered over them, sending gusts of wind crashing everywhere around them. Aurora smirked, shielding both Sebastian and Lucifer along with herself with her Parasol. The ray of light vanished, and Michael grabbed hold of the spear and pulled it out of the ground, the spot he had stabbed healed quickly as he looked over at the town - seeing the tree that had been cut down earlier having been restored. He then looked over to where Omega and Blaze had been standing. Omega simply stood there, staring down at Blaze who was pulling herself to her feet. After she had accomplished that, she coughed up some blood and glared. "For an angel, you sure are an ass!" Omega grasped Blaze's arm, and her body began to glow. "T-Thanks, Omega." "You are lucky you survived... I did not use the true form of Heaven's Guidance. I advise you to leave... Now." Omega simply looked at Michael. "Blaze, leave. I do not want you dead." Blaze looked at Omega. "B-But what about you!? Don't take him on alone! We did what we needed to do, now we ca-" Omega pushed her roughly, and she fell into a tear in reality which quickly shut. Omega looked up at Michael. "You are very aware of whom you are facing, correct?" "Are you?"

At this, a light portal that lead to the Renegade Base opened up behind Sebastian, Lucifer and Aurora. "Rin, Aurora... Get those three out of here. NOW!" Aurora nodded, looking at Omega once before pulling Sebastian to the portal. Rin came out and grabbed Lucifer, hurrying her along into the portal as well. The portal then was sealed shut, as Michael felt a breeze pass over the two.
".... May I have this dance?" Omega simply stood there, a blade of indescribable material forming in his hand. "Michael A Malachim. You are proving to be an annoyance. My Mistress does not like annoyances. You may make the first move, if you dare." "Mistress this, Mistress that... I think I'm more worried about you not keeping up to you're new reputation!" With that, Michael charged! "And you are turning out to be less than what I expected, fool!" With that, Omega lunged towards Michael, his sword drawn.

~ A moment of peace? ~

Meanwhile... Sebastian felt something being applied to his back as he flinched. "Ahhhh.... That hurts..." He mumbled. "He will be fine as long as he lays here... I advise someone keep watch over him until then." The doctor said as he rose up before walking out of the room. A Renegade soldier brought the Wandering Blade over to a device brought in that had been made by Scott for Demon Swords. He thrusted it in as he watched it slowly come under the effects of the freezing machine. "That Scott, I tell ya miss Rin... I don't know where we'd be without him around." Rin sighed and spoke. "Yeah, he's been a MASSIVE help to us. We'd be pretty screwed without him haha!" Rin looked around, seeing Lucifer in the distance. "I'll be right back." "Sure thing miss Rin." The Renegade soldier responded. Rin proceeded over to Lucifer. "How's Sebastian doing?" Lucifer looked up. "He's doing fine... Listen, I need to tell you something..." With that. Lucifer leaned in close to Rin and whispered in her ear, causing the Kasha to recoil in shock. "W-What!?" Lucifer nodded. "Don't tell anyone though. It could be the death of us if you do."

"Miss Rin, Lucifer..." The soldier spoke out. ".... We have an issue or two." Rin and Lucifer turned around, looking at the Soldier. "Yes?" "Yeah?" "Well, it's just... The boy deserves a prize of some sort for bringing in that weapon, but uh... Only a leader or co-leader can make that official, so um..." Rin nodded. "Let's go, shall we?" ".... Sure... Lucifer, the boy wishes to ask you something." With that, the Renegade soldier walked away with Rin. Rin walked off with the soldier and Lucifer nodded, walking to the place where Sebastian was. "Sebastian?" Sebastian struggled to find the words. ".... I'm pretty wrathful, right?" Lucifer spoke. "Yeah... Why?"
".... Let me make a pact with her.... If it'll help keep her alive." "Match up with who? Satan?" "Who else?" "Oh... I guess that would make sense... Heh..." "I'll gather all of the sins later on and we can all do our pacts then. I'll have Rin lead you through it as well." "Thanks..." He smiled at her weakly.

"So uh miss Rin... What is he going to get for this then?" The soldier asked her. Rin sighed. "I have no idea... Usually Deon or Michael handed out the awards but...." She sighed and rubbed her forehead. "What do you think he should get?" "I don't know! Perhaps... Maybe summon one of the Sins? They would probably know what Deon would give the boy." "I think the sins are busy.... Ugh, I have no idea...." Suddenly a voice could be heard. "A day off to go to a Party, maybe?~" And as it finished speaking a gust of wind blew an envelope straight into Rin's hands. "What the...? W-WHA!? HOW THE HELL DID-!?" Rin glared. "This 'party is...." "Oh dear! .... It's an omen, miss Rin! Are you going to listen to it?!?!" Rin put the envelope in her pocket, and sighed. "I might not have a choice." "Oh deary dear!"

Epic Battle! - Michael vs Omega Part I!


Michael charged at Omega and clashed with him - his spear colliding with his sword as he struggled against him. Omega simply stood, hand outstreched as if he wasn't struggling at all. "Is this it, Michael?".
"You know my answer". He outstreched his left hand, sending a ball of holy light at Omega. Omega smirked, watching the ball fly through his body, and he drew back his fist and sent it straight into Michael's chin. Michael was hit and sent flying back. But he flipped around and stopped himself, glaring at Omega as he did. "... Hmm, odd. I thought only Deon was this strong. So... Tell me, 'friend.' How long have you and that girl been Phoenikoi?". Omega was simply silent, before vanishing suddenly and reappearing above Michael, sending his foot straight down at the Half-Angel. Michael grabbed Omega's foot at this, glaring at him as he did. "... So, you knew I knew. It figures... Who is this Mistress you work for?". Omega simply floated there, and moved his hand up to his mask. "I will not tell you her name, but her title. You may call her the 'Mirage Puppeteer'. Allow me to take off my Mask for a moment". Omega reached up and plucked off his mask, grinning. "Do you recognise me, Michael?". Michael felt his eyes widen as he saw him and jumped back at this, glaring at him as he did. "..... You son of a bitch".

Omega cocked his head to the side as if he was confused. "You.... know me?". Omega blinked, his eyes changing. "How do you... know me?".
"... So, you don't remember. A pity....". He said as he brought up a hand to his face. "Then allow me to ring a bell....

....With my full power."



Omega sighed. "The Mistress has a habit of erasing my memory. I guarantee you I am no longer who you think I am. Tell me... How do you know me?".
"..... Tell me..... Does the name *Spoilers* ring any bells?".
Omega was silent for a moment. "....It seems... familiar..... B-But I can't let you distract me! The Mistress sent me here with a definite mission, I never fail her". Omega growled and his eyes turned back to their prior color. "Tell me, why do you think I am here?".
"Is it because of the boy?"
Omega had pushed the mask onto his face, and his eye locked with Michael's own. "Sebastian?".
"Yes... You were after him...".
Omega laughed, a hollow, dead laugh. "Did it not occur to you that this was all a ploy to draw a certain person out from hiding?".
"..... A certain person? And is that person standing here right here?".
"They were foolish enough to put others before themself. Therefore, they shall pay with their blood".
Omega remained still, unmoving, as if something was stopping him. "....I don't know who you are talking about.... But I'll show you something you never knew about.... Something hardly anyone knows about". At this, a bright holy light surrounded Michael at this. ".... Something when we met, I never showed you or told you about to make you happy..." Omega remained unmoving. "So we HAVE met before.....".
".... Yeah.... You'll remember soon enough....".
With that, his holy light shot up into the air as it went sky-high, seperating clouds as the sky glowed brightly at this.

Omega vanished suddenly, slamming his knee into Michael. His knee hit Michael at this, but his knee was stopped as Michael locked eyes with Omega, his eye color changing to gray as he suddenly sent one hundred punches in just three seconds at him. Omega grinned, watching as every single punch went straight through him. "Like I said, they cannot touch me". Michael appeared behind Omega as he said this, sending three hundred punches every five seconds at him. Omega simply sighed, and flung his leg backwards into Michael's face. Michael grabbed his leg at this and struck two fingers into his leg. He then pushed Omega's leg away as he jumped back. Omega simply spun away, cracking his neck. "Is this all you have, Angel?". As he finished this, his leg suddenly glew as an explosion of holy as tall as a tower appeared where Omega just was. When the pillar of light vanished, Omega was still standing there, untouched. "Pathetic... Tell me about this... 'Deon' of which you speak".
".... Deon?"
Michael spoke, his tone having changed entirely. ".... The only thing I will speak of, is to eliminate the demon in front of me."

"Why am I not allowed to be curious about someone for which you seem to care. If he is stronger than me, then.... I wish to be able to match him! So that nobody can harm those that I care for, either!". Michael slowly began to rise into the air. ".... I am Archangel Michael! All demons shall fall at my hands if they threaten Heaven and The Holy One!". Omega sighed. "Why must you act when I am trying to allow you a chance to escape? I wonder how this... 'Deon'... saw you. I doubt it was in a good light".
"I do not know of who you speak of! I never made a pact with any demons, they are filth! They are disgusting, like you! After this, I will personally wipe out all demons currently on Earth!". Omega smirked. "And what you are saying right now is being broadcasted straight to your Renegade Base, my silly Half-Angel friend".
"A half angel exists?!?! Who dares to make such an ugly creature! I will personally wipe every one of them out! DO YOU HEAR ME RENEGADE BASE?!?! The Archangels will march down on your door step and DESTROY YOU!!".

Omega simply sighed. "Mistress, cut him off". Suddenly, all of Michael's power vanished without a trace. Nobody knew how, aside from Omega, and he spoke. "You are an idiot to let your power overwhelm you like that, Half-Angel". Michael suddenly stopped as he fell to the ground, completely unmoving as he lay there dying. Omega looked down, pointing at Michael and having a tendril shoot out and grab him. Omega took off his mask as Michael neared him and spoke. "Silly, silly Michael. Why did you do that?". Omega summoned another tendril and stabbed it through Michael's stomach, drawing it out again and then aiming it straight at Michael's throat. "Do not inform them of my identity, Michael. Or my Mistress will kill us all". Omega sent the tendril forward and- "OMEGA, I COMMAND YOU TO HALT!". The tendril stopped immediately, and Omega turned to the figure that had shouted.

"Lady Aurora?".


Aurora sighed, and spoke. "Put Michael down. He is not to be killed tonight, that is an order!". Omega's mask had vanished entirely, and his expression was that of an unsure child. "B-But Lady Re-". Aurora slammed her parasol onto the ground and Omega nodded quickly. "S-S-Sorry Lady Aurora! I'll make sure to put him down gently too!". Omega quickly erased the tentacles and dropped to the ground, placing Michael down gently. Omega kneeled down onto one knee and spoke. "Have I... Have I displeased you, Lady Aurora?". Aurora simply sighed, then smiled. "You are too eager to serve, Omega. Please, leave now. We have an event to prepare for". Omega nodded, and stammered slightly. "Y-Yes, Lady Aurora". Omega stole a look over at Michael, and then turned to Aurora. "Lady Aurora.... May I ask you something?". Aurora's eyes opened in shock. "You usually never ask anything of me. What is it you require?". Omega looked straight down, and spoke softly. "Who is.... 'Deon'....? That Half-Angel spoke of him, and I am... curious about him...". Aurora smiled. "I shall inform you later". Omega nodded, and then vanished. Aurora turned around, waving her parasol in a circle and opening a portal to the Renegades Headquarters. "Medics, please!". Quickly, the Medics rushed to Michael's side, picking him up and carting him off to the Infirmary. Scott looked over at Aurora as he saw her. ".... So you know something about Omega then that would of helped saved Michael back there?". Aurora ignored Scott, looking at the place where Omega had last stood. "Omega, you poor, poor child". Scott simply furrowed his brows and walked away.

An Interesting Morning! - The Purgatory Ball! Part I


It was morning... Everyone was either up or just getting up. Scott stood in Michael's place, tapping his foot impatiently as he looked around. Next to him was Rin, it was unknown if Quake would be attending this event or not. Near them were the gathered seven shikigami that served Deon. Near Lucifer could be seen Sebastian, who was trying his best not to move as much as possible. If anyone else was there, they should either be arriving, already there or.... Sleeping. Quake strode into the room, surprisingly sober looking for someone who was mostly drunk. "What're we here for, Scott?". Quake looked around at everyone who was there and sighed. "I've also decided to take you up on your offer". Rin looked at Quake, noticing her apparenty sobriety and grinned. "Good to know!". The Seven Sins all looked at each other, except Asmodeus who was busy giving S certain looks. S was blinking as she sat next to Asmodeus. "... I didn't know you could do that". Asmodeus simply smirked. "I can do a lot of things, S~".
"Yowsa~" S responded. Claire remained patient and relatively unamused by the antics of the others, sitting off to the side. In her lap, she stroked Blanche carefully. Ash and Noir did not appear to be in attendance.

"Ah yes Quake, have a seat". Scott responded. "Is everyone here then?" He asked. Given the silence, it could be assumed that was the case. Suddenly, Aurora stepped into the room, her green hair wet and slightly messy. "I must apologise for my lateness. A few ruffians thought it would be entertaining to sneak into your Headquarters and trample your Gardens. As a Flower Youkai I had to take action". She looked around and smiled. "We seem to be missing some people".
"They will be informed later either way... Have a seat then Aurora". Scott looked over at Rin. "I assume we are ready then...?". Aurora nodded and thanked Scott, taking a seat and placing her Parasol away. Rin looked at Scott and nodded. "You go first".

Scott sighed as he rubbed his forehead. "If anyone has any questions, speak them up when you can". He said before looking over some notes. "... First off, last night appears to have revealed a new threat to us. While Sebastian and Lucifer were out for whatever reasons they were out for..." Scott took this chance to glare at them both briefly, watching them flinch back before looking back to his notes... "... They encountered one of the newest threats to the world - Omega. We do not know who this person is, why he is causing such havoc on the world or why he attacked them last night. But we do know that he appears to have been after some fun, and he appears to also be very... Very powerful. Enough to take on Renegade Leader Michael Malachim last night and survive. Michael is currently recovering from said fight and could not be here today. They also encountered Eppenos of Flames, who was hostile and had the Demon Weapon, The Wandering Blade, with him. Eppenos' location is currently unknown, but the demon weapon was brought in last night and has been confined since".

Rin sighed, and spoke. "A demon calling himself Kallos, who we have identified to be called 'Balarus' thanks to Aurora, took over the television networks as I am sure you all are aware. He intends to attack the Main Base of the WDL, Angel D'Brightaine's current location and kill him in cold blood. I believe Kallos summed it up quite nicely indeed". Rin coughed and spoke again. "Hell has declared War on Earth".
"With this said... Michael has decided upon a plan last night that will assure everyone avoids a mess... He has formed two teams out of the children and has ordered both new teams to go out today, find Kallos and his men, and eliminate him before things get out of hand. The teams are as follows - team one will be of Sebastian, Claire and Kane. The other will be of Ashley, Keilani and Mireya. Michael threw in some last orders before going out to fight Omega last night it seems - he has ordered Lucifer to go along as a bodyguard for Sebastian and his team. Any questions so far?". Aurora raised a hand. "Yes?" Scott said.

"What do you plan to do if Omega strikes again, Mister Turner?".
"That depends on who he attacks... If he attacks Kallos - we shall leave it at that. If he attacks Angel, we may have to go in and help. If he attacks us -- well... Everyone will have to defend this base with they're lives I assume if worse comes to shove". Aurora sighed. "If only you knew". Aurora cleared her thoat and then began. "No doubt most of you have noticed by now that in some way you have ended up with an envelope in your possession. Inside said envelope was an invitation to something called the 'Purgatory Ball'. Also inside said envelope was something that only you should know. If only you should know it, then how did the Host of this Ball know about it? And aside from that, we have the issue of Omega. One of my passive abilities is to be able to 'Scan' things and find weaknesses or information about them through psycho-linking. In basis, I invade their mind and find information about them. Only people with stronger mental capabilities than me, and those are very very few, are able to stop it. Even then I can still get their name or at least one fact about them". Aurora sighed. "Omega.... Omega was completely unreadable aside from his power. He is.... He is unlike anything we've seen before. Unlike anything that I have seen before. If worst comes to worst, he and his partner, this... 'Blaze', will have the upper hand".

"Of course... Thank you. Now then, Rin.... Would you like to address about the seven sins or does anyone else have any questions first?". Silence filled the room, and Rin simply nodded and spoke. "Since Deon has been incarcerated by the WDL, the Seven Sins will be needing hosts to connect with, so that they don't, well, die. We need people that are heavily involved in one of the seven sins. Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust". Rin gave Asmodeus and S a look. "I trust that Lust has already found a partner?". S smirked. "Guilty as charged~ We ran off last night and got married! Then we ate hot dogs and tried out our new beds~" She snickered at the joking. "I bet you did...". Rin sighed. "I hope you heard every groan!" S commented. Rin just rubbed her forehead and sighed. "Anyway, any questions?".
"WHEN YOU THROWING THE BABY SHOWER?!?!".

Rin just glared. "Moving on, Scott?". Scott sighed. "Right.... If no one has any more questions - who wants to volunteer for one of the seven sins? Besides Lust."
"GO TEAM LUST!"
"SHUT UP S!!!"
Quake put her hand up. "I'll go with Pride".
"You? Prideful?" Scott said sarcastically. Asmodeus smirked. "You are a pretty boastful bitch, ain't ya?~". Quake growled. "Just because Deon isn't here doesn't mean you can be an idiot, Az". Quake also glared at Scott. "Least I'm not a stuck-up douche like you!"., she said under her breath.
"What was that?" Scott asked. Quake grinned. "Oh, nothing".
"Lucifer... Do you accept?" Lucifer didn't even hesitate before nodding.

"Good... Meet up with her now and do the pact -- bonding --" Snickering came at this. "SHUT UP YOU TWO LUSTING PRICKS!!!" Rin looked at Scott. "What's next on the agenda? The envelopes?". Scott remained silent on this note. Sebastian spoke out at this. "I'll take Satan".
"OH THANK GOD -- I mean.... Satan, do you accept?" Satan looked at Sebastian, scoffed and nodded. "I figured you were Luci's". Sebastian got up and walked over to her. "I am... But this doesn't mean anything between us. This is just to keep you alive".
"What're you all up in my face for, shorty? You wanna start something with me, huh?". Scott cleared his throat. "Remember, everyone.... This isn't a donation or anything of the sort... It's to keep four people alive". Sebastian glared. "Just do the pact thing already".
"I repeat.... FOUR PEOPLE. ALIVE! NOT DEAD!".


Satan nodded, grabbed Sebastian and dragged him off like Quake had done with Lucifer. Claire patiently watched the show between the 'Sins' and there new compatriots, before nodding to herself. "Should it be acceptable, I will volunteer for Leviathan".
"Leviathan?" Leviathan looked over at Claire, and spoke. "Sure, but.... You don't seem very envious to me.... I envy you so much if you're hiding it!".
"Envy comes in many forms." Claire responded calmly, though the admission of some connection to the embodiment of jealousy was no easy task. Leviathan nodded once, muttering something about envying Claire's intellect before nodding and accepting. "We have Greed, Gluttony and Sloth left... Any volunteers?".
"If I may inquire - Who do each of you feel you would be most suited to forming a link with?" Claire looked to the remaining sins.

The three sins were quiet. Belphegor spoke up. "Rin, you really want to go back to bed don't you?". Rin nodded and motioned for her to come over. "I'll take Greed, if you don't mind me~". Aurora stood and bowed politely. Mammon grinned and joined her side. Rin spoke. "Gluttony, anyone?". It was at that moment that one mister Shinjei Kintaro walked into the room with a bucket of chicken in hand. Rin smirked. "I think we found our man, and he brought Chicken!". Scott blinked before adjusted his glasses at this. "Mr. Shinjei! What did I tell you about bringing food in front of the guests?!".
"Well I heard Beelzebub needed someone gluttonous and.. *Nom*... She...I... I eat a lot...*Nom* You know?".
"And this chicken is so good, too!". Beelzebub practically leaped over to him and started eating too. "Oh god it IS!".
"BEELZEBUB! Oh god, I'm just glad the sins aren't wearing they're traditional outfits... Or Mr. Shinji would be lustful right now".

"GO TEAM LUST FOREVER!!!"
"QUIET DOWN NOW S!"
Rin shouted, her voice echoing through the room ferociously. "OKAY EVERYONE, SHUT UP!". Needless to say, everyone talking shut up. "Now, the ENVELOPES, SCOTT".
".... Right.... The envelopes..... I assume from what Aurora said everyone got one. Inside, it should say.... Something only you would know. The unusual thing is, we do not know who sent it, why or when we are suppose to go.... That's all I know - Rin, anything else to bring up?"
"......Something weird.... Just happened...". Rin looked up, listening to something that nobody else could hear. Aurora simply smiled. "It seems that the Limousine has arrived....".
"Now of all times? We can't go now....". Rin pulled out her envelope, checking it over again and exclaiming in shock. "What the.... 'Time will be stopped in the Outside, so don't fret you won't miss a beat'?". Scott shook his head and left without another word. Sebastian blinked as he helped Lucifer up and walked with her. "Well then, I guess it's time for us to all leave?". Rin laughed and left too. "I feel it would be prudent to leave some behind. For security reasons. We have no idea whether this could be a trap or diversion." Claire stated astutely, a little surprised at how eager everyone was.

"Michael will be here. He will report to us at the first sight of anything unusual." Scott stated before leaving. Asmodeus smirked. "He got an invite too~".
"I don't care if he did or not... If it weren't for Omega, he wouldn't be recovering right now."
"I wonder what this Omega guy IS anyway?".
"We're about to find out..."


An Interesting Morning! - The Purgatory Ball! Part II


Rin had gotten dressed pretty fast, so had Quake and the seven sins. After a long ride in the limousine across lands that seemed.... so weird. So magical and yet they existed. Rin had left the car first just in case someone had it in for them, and she gasped. "This place is so....". Aurora stepped out of the Limousine. "...Home~". Rin looked at Aurora, who simply grinned. "My friend lives here, I call it home~". Rin looked back as Quake exited the Limo, letting out a 'Whooooo' as she saw the building before them. It was impossibly large, with the entirety of it being hidden behind a massive fence and gate. From where they were, they could barely see half of the mansion. "What... What IS this place?". Sebastian got out as he blinked and stood next to Lucifer. "..... Well fudge..." He mumbled. Scott looked at it with awe, unable to say anything. Mireya was not in the best of conditions at the moment; however, the invitation that she had received anonymously was not something she could ignore all together. As a result, she cannot help but go to where this invitation had told her to come. Soon enough, she had arrived to a place that she could only describe as something similar to wonderland or those scenes in children books. "Why is it that things get weirder and weirder...?" She mumbled mostly to herself. In any case, it was good to know that she had managed to borrow a dress to attend to such a formal function. Her clothes were still back at her apartment. Stepping out of the limousine, she was a simple yet elegant vision. She wore a simple pastel colored chiffon evening dress while her hair was left falling around her in a curly waterfall trend.

Keilani was rather shocked and at the same time curious about the sender of the invitation. Its content was prodding to her inner doubts and questions. There was no way she would allow this chance to pass her. It was her opportunity to get some answers. Thus, even with Dr. Hyde's protest due to her health, she borrowed a dress from Rin and attended the said ball. Upon arrival, she was stunned by the scenery. It was something that should only exist in one's imagination. Regardless, she slightly shook her head and focused at the task in hand.

It'd taken some time to convince Ash to join the others, both the idea of a ballroom event, and the fact she felt she had better things to do leading her to refuse the trip. Instead, she'd intended to train up in the Gym in preparation for her next spar with Claire. Eventually however, the enveloped secret, along with Claire's insistence had brought the girl along - though neither of the siblings had the time or wardrobe to dress up for the occasion - Not that Ash would ever wear a dress unless forcibly made to do so. Somewhat like a spoiled child, Ashley folded her arms and hmmphed every now and then as she followed along with everyone. Rin and Aurora lead the ground, Aurora pointing out objects and things of interest, and Rin 'oooh'ing and 'aaah'ing at every thing she pointed out. Eventually, Aurora led them to a rather large dome-roofed building further away from the massive mansion, and she spoke. "This is the Ballroom". Suddenly, a lunar rabbit bounced out in front of them and grinned. "Welcome back, Lady Aurora!". Aurora smiled politely and bowed. "Merry meet, Luna". The Lunar Rabbit grinned and spoke. "I'll let the others know that you're here!". After that, she bounced off into the building.

Aurora turned, and spoke. "Our Host is.... odd. Do NOT displease her". "I knew it. It's the same bunny who killed Drayne AND the one who appeared last night..." Mireya followed the group while taking occasional glances at her companions. It was qlso quite entertatining seeing Rin's reactions and the one named Ash acting much like a spoiled child. However, her attention was more focused at the one who invited them here. Normally, she would have tossed the invitation aside if it wasn't for its hidden message. As such, she was more here for the host than anything else. It only further her suspicions when she heard Sebastian mentioning about the bunny girl that appeared about killing someone. Keilani was walking behind the group while she looked around her. Somehow, it reminded her of the story Cinderella. In any case, she should sense tension among her companions. She was not sure if it was due to the eerie environment, or they also received messages that forced them to attend.. or Aurora's words of warning.

"Maybe it is a good thing Sebastian and Lucifer did something reckless last night..." Scott admitted. Remaining quiet and to the back, Ashley made a point of glaring at the overtly cheerful rabbit, along with eyerolling at the 'Best Behaviour' Comment. She wasn't exactly fond of this host, nor what they had written - So her mood was already rather sour. Sooner they got their answers, the sooner they could leave - that was her opinion on the matter. Suddenly, the door opened. And standing there was.... "Good evening, Lady Aurora". Aurora smiled. "It is good to see you again, Ronove". Scott rose a brow. "Nice to see you again, Ronove...". Ronove nodded and bowed. Mireya looked at the newest newcomer. It seemed that this was a familiar one as Scott knew the person, demon, or whatever it might be. She really didn't care about the pleasantries. She just wanted to know what was the purpose of making them come here. Actually, she preferred to sleep at this time. Sebastian blinked at this. "I'm just wondering who -else- got this invitation..."

Keilani looked at the one called Ronove curiously. She wondered if this person was the host or not. Scott shook his head. "If I say anyone, I'm gonna get jinxed". Mireya released a sigh. "Enough of the pleasantries". Ash nodded. "Finally, someone speaking sense. Let's just get this done." Stepping up, she began moving to head past and inside. Keilani looked at Ash and then to Mireya with concern. They both seemed annoyed at something. She hoped it won't anger their hosts. Suddenly, it was dark. Somehow the sun had just vanished, a beatufiul scarlet mist taking over the skies. The only light coming from the Ballroom itself. Once everyone was inside, the doors closed by themselves an the lights dimmed. In the middle of the dancefloor, a spotlight illuminated. Two figures stood there, a familiar blue-haired figure and another figure, his features covered by a mask. A very familiar mask. "Welcome to the Purgatory Ball! I do hope you enjoy your stay!~ This party.... Is to DIE for!~".
"I hope that wasn't a serious joke." Sebastian mumbled to himself.

Mireya raised an eyebrow at the events. "Is this some spoof episode or something?" She looked around to see if there was some hidden cameras. This was just getting too ridiculous for her tastes. "Let's just get this over with people". Bellfoar groaned to himself as he tapped the table. "God damn it all Golem, STOP BEING A DUMBASS AND USE A SPOON!". Golem scratched it's head as it look at it. ".... Does Golem eat puny spoon?". "HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW?!" Bellfoar slammed his face into the desk at this. A familiar voice rang out to Sebastian, and it's figure followed. Blaze stood there, a playful smirk on her face. "About time you guys got here, we've been waiting for you~". Sebastian rose a brow. "I see you recovered from last night... Looks like you'll be ready for when round two comes!" Blaze grinned. "You think you can handle me, eh Seb?~". "You!" Ash growled, stepping forward towards Belfoar with a glare. Oh, if someone had told her HE'D be here, she would've jumped at the chance to attend this little ball. Striding with full purpose, she was intent to start a ruckus here and now...".

Sebastian smiled at this. "I could of beaten you if Omega hadn't shown up!". "Ah don't bother Bellfoar." Itzhet told him as he patted his back. "Just relax and enjoy the party!". Blaze laughed. "Oh my, you really have NO idea who I am, do you?". "What Itzhet said." Kalhman said as he took a drink. "Oh lords and heavens, this drink is to DIE for!~" "I CAN'T RELAX WITH THIS IDIOT HERE! LOOK!" He sends a lightning bolt into Golem. "NOTHING!!!!!" He does it again and slammed his face into the desk again, banging his fists on it. "Party pooper." Was all Yami said. "I know enough that I could win." Sebastian said with confidence. Mireya watched the interactions between Sebastian and Ash. It was quite interesting to watch. Although, she was not here for some sad sob stories or rivalry ones. She should have just ignored the invitation as it was probably just some joke. Without another word, she turned her back and decided to head for the exit.

"Oh hello there, Ash, how are you tonight?". The voice snuck out from beside the girl. If she looked, she would see none other than Frank Enrique Steinbolt. "You got here late". "NOW, I MUST INTRODUCE YOU ALL TO THE ONE, THE ONLY.... OMEGA!". "You said it Yami." Balarus of Kallos spoke. "I just became an international terroist and here I am - enjoying a party like I am young again~". "You ARE young, Kallos". "So you are correct Yami!" Keilani looked around nervously. She was sensing a lot of emotions and noticed Mireya heading for the door. Everything was getting a bit confusing and the emotions flooding her were starting to be abnormal to her. "Ahhh, Omega returns..." Eppenos spoke with glee. "I wonder how he is at full power..." "I'm not interested in you." Ash practically spat, shoving the 'Doctor' aside, ignoring the declaration and various other happenings about the hall. She had a personal problem with that lightning jerk, and she'd take the chance here to settle it. "So Ash, I wonder how Deon is doing, hm? Or maybe.... Your Father?".

"What's this?" A sinister voice spoke as Ash felt an immense pressure crushing down on her as she felt like her entire body was being slammed down on by a giant boulder - three footsteps sounded like they were galaxies away as a figure approached her. In front of her stood a figure who's face could scare even the most terrifying warriors of hell... Rhanksar stood in front of her, glaring down at her as if he was ready to just erase her entire being. "Do you intend to ruin the Mistress' party with unneeded conflict?". Aurora strode up to Rhanksar, and smiled. "Rhanksar, what a pleasure to see you again!~". Mireya was out of the door as she released a sigh. She should have never listened to that cosplaying woman or demon whatemachacallit. It would have been better for her to have stayed out of these things. "Now, how do I get out of this place?" She mumbled to herself. Ash winced a bit, trying to force herself back up, shooting glares all around. Now she had a few people she needed to deal with. Belfoar or whatever his name was threatened her family - Now this crazy doctor from the train mentioned her father. Then this Rhanksar guy, the one fratenising with Aurora, was in the way of both of those. With a grunt, she tried to move, but the weight was just a bit too strong for her, so she instead simmered in anger on the floor.

Luna met Mireya outside, and smirked. "You don't leave until you're allowed". Rhanksar looked away, and the pressure was lifted off of Ash - as if she had just come back out of space. Rhanksar smiled as he turne to face Aurora. "Ahh, Lady Aurora..." He bowed from the waist slowly at her. "Good to see you are alive and well..." He looked behind him. "Allow me to introduce you to my son... Saulkur". "CAN'T TALK NOW DAD, GETTING THIS WONDERFUL DRRIIINKKK~". Rhanksar glared in his direction. ".... OKAY, I'LL BE RIGHT OVER! JUST, GIVE ME A MOMENT!". Rhanksar turned to Aurora's direction, rubbing his forehead as he did.

Keilani was not certain of what was happening as she went to Ash with worry. She looked at Rhanksar. "Please let her go". Mireya looked at the bunny girl from earlier. "There is no way I'm joining the circus de freak inside". "Oh don't mind me, Rhanksar! I'm well aware as to how disobediant a child can be. I DID raise a few of my own when Youkai-Human Relationships were allowed. A shame, though, that they stopped it". Aurora looked to Keilani with a warm smile. "She is fine, Rhanksar heres is just... stressing, I assume?". Luna looked at Mireya with a glare. "Well still, you can't leave. It's physically impossible". Keilani was thankful for this as she gave a grateful smile and looked at Ash with concern. "Are you all right?". "Someone who is so weak she can't even stand before my presence decided to look into my eyes and try to stare me down..." Rhanksar admitted. "A pity she failed at it". Aurora placed a hand on Rhanksar's shoulder. "Do not worry, now, introduce me to this son of yours, will you?". "Give him a moment... Let him have his damned fill".

"OH MY GAWWDDD, I NEED MORE OF THIS IN ME!". Mireya returned the glare back at Luna. "So, it is not mentally impossible isn't it?" With that said, she went towards a nearby pillar and plopped down on the floor without regard to her dress. "I'm sleeping. I am tired."Ash sat up, brushing herself down as she looked to Keilani before spitefully glaring at Rhanksar. "Yeah, I'm fine... I just can't stand this place... I am not acting friendly with these guys." She stated resolutely, folding her arms, but not backing down from Rhanksar. "Well now, isn't this party just fabulous?~". The blue haired girl waltzed over to them, followed by Omega. "And who are you may I ask, young lady, to speak to your fellow Guests like that?~". Her smile was polite, but her tone had a bitter, cutting edge to it. Elsewhere, Claire had moved over to meet a certain doctor. "This is the last place I would hope to see you." Her tone was laced with disgust, her usual friendly demeanour lost to Frank. Keilani nodded in understanding. She cannot blame Ash for acting like so. "I understand. Just please don't be too reckless...". Saulkur stumbled over as he stopped by his father's side. "HE-LLOOOO HOTNESS! I am Saulkur, king of the -- *hiccup* -- drunks, apparently...".

Frank turned to Claire, and smiled. "Oh, hello there miss Clade. Claire, right? Aaah, last time I saw you was when you were.... Oh my, such a long time ago". Frank smirked, and spoke. "I am not here to cause trouble. I am here on request. Aside from my homicidal tendencies, I am still a doctor". Rhanksar felt an eye twitch. "I thought it was common decency to give your own name first in introductions?" Ash looked to the girl, the annoyance and taunting in her voice flagrantly ignoring Aurora's and Keilani's advice. "Just stay away from us. I mean it." Claire gritted her teeth, showing more restraint than Ash could as she walked back to the group. Keilani looked at the blue-haired girl that approached them. Somehow, she felt oddly about this person. she was not certain why. In any case, she grabbed hold of Ash's arm in an effort to restrict her and at the same time to show her slight feeling of nervousness. "Ah, so true! Allow me to introduce myself. You may call me Remilia~ Ash, right? Your brother told me MUCH about you. Well, not really~". Remilia smirked, her fangs showing. She held up her wineglass. "You may think this is wine, but you are wrong. I am a Vampire, you see. Although the fangs and wings must've made it obvious by now". She cracked her neck and tapped Omega on the shoulder. "Omega, introduce yourself properly~".

As for Mireya, she had decided to keep in peace far from the ballroom. There was no way she is going to join in other people's problems. She was no saint and definitely not that nice for starters. She had too much problems on her own anyway. Closing her eyes, she began to slowly drift to slumber. As she said that, he took off his mask, revealing a young man with brown hair, his eyes both grey and speckled with star-like dots of gold. Her hair was of medium length, and it was slightly curly, too. "I am... Omega. I do not have much to say for myself other than I am....". Omega looked down at this. "Milady, may I take a walk outside?". Remilia nodded, and gave him permission. "You may~". With that, Omega left the Ballroom. "And Omega's gone - party pooper." Saulkur said. "Son, don't you have to go to a corner and cry somewhere?"
"... Wha --"

At this, Rhanksar, without warning, punched Saulkur clean in the face. It sent him flying, and into a corner he went. "... Give him a few, he'll be just fine." "Friendly fellow..." Ash muttered, before remembering she was supposed to introduce herself. "Just call me Ash. Though don't expect me to talk to you that much." Ash replied bluntly, finding the woman in front of her... distasteful, for some reason.An arm weakly rose up and waved. "I'M OKAY! JUST... DRUNK! AH-HAHAHAHAHAH -- OWWWWWWW!!!"
"Told you."

Keilani was thankful that Ash seemed to restrain herself. As such, she released a sigh of relief. Then, her eyes widened in surprise as Rhanksar punched his son. "Oh my! Will he be fine?" Not a moment too soon. Aurora let out a small laugh, and spoke again. "So, how's life Rhanksar?". Saulkur stood as if it was nothing. "The usual. I see my other son has decided to join... I see he has become more powerful then my reports said he was currently. Tell me - what did he do last night to obtain this sudden boost that can make him jump seven feet in the air?" Remilia smirked at Ash's comment. "Well then, don't mind if I throw you into Purgatory, eh?~". Remilia laughed lightly, and then left, suddenly vanishing into thin air. Keilani wondered if Mireya was fine. She did leave without saying anything to any of them. As for the one named Remilia, she felt the hairs on the back of her neck stand. "I wonder who she really is...". Blinking a moment, Ash reached forward to the spot where Remilia had once been, before sighing, rubbing her head and turning to Keilani and her question. "Don't know, don't care. She's just a creepy old vampire, so my plan is just to ignore her". "And Remilia's drunk again -- fan-fucking-tastic." Yami said as he shook his head.

Omega was wandering around outside without his mask when he came across Mireya. He briefly wondered who she was, but.... He was torn between speaking to her and simply walking past. "....". Keilani looked at Ash for a brief moment and nodded. "It is best to do that". And then, Illusions. Well, only one in particular. She tapped Ash on the shoulder and grinned. "Long time no see, hmm?~". Mireya was leaning comfortably on the pillar behind her. The dress sparwled on the floor like a pond underneath her. Her hair was still in a prim and proper manner with occasional strands of hair on her face. She seemed fast asleep as her breathing was both stable and even. However, the one thing noticeable about her expression was a slight twitch at the corner of her lips. Ash jumped a little, but quickly steadied herself, sighing and turning to face the 'principal'. "Well now this just keeps getting better and better..." She muttered, not exactly knowing where Illusion stood on the 'ally or enemy' side of things.

Omega simply stared at the girl for a while. She seemed to radiate a sense of wonder, but he felt... odd. As if he should just walk past quietly and not bother her. The more curious part of him decided that it would be fun to wake her up. "Darn...". So it was with that thought in mind that Omega was crouching next to Mireya, and tapping her on the shoulder gently. "I should at least give her a room...". Keilani looked at the person who suddenly appeared and surprised Ash in a very obvious manner. "You alright, Ash?" Then looked at Illusion curiously.

~ Before the Bellfoar Mini-Story... Deon VS Samuel! ~

It had been some hours since Kallos had waged war against the WDL. Deon had been mysteriously moved for the morning into a large empty pool-like room, strapped to a cross-like part in the wall where he had been tortured by some impatient WDL members. A lone exorcist wondered into the room, closing the door behind him as he walked to where Deon was hanging on the wall. "Hello, Mr. Morris." The masked figure spoke. "... I see you are in terrible conditions. Tell me - do you know what I am?" "A douchebag Exorcist, most likely." Deon smiled politely. "Whoever you are, you seem to know of me." "I've heard so much about you, I wanted to see you for myself. That is why I made arrangements for us to meet here. Alone. With no one watching but my one true superior..." Deon smirked. "And who would that be, I wonder?" Deon's tone was slightly mocking and had a sweet edge to it. "You know him already, the new leader of the WDL. But I am being rude - allow me to introduce myself..." With that, the Exorcist grabbed his mark and took it off, throwing it to the side as the exorcist looked up to reveal a familiar face to Deon... "Devin Namach, correct? My, my, what did they ever do to you?" Deon glared around the room, hoping to aim it at Angel. "Devin? I am not this Devin of which you refer to.... I am Samuel D'Brightaine - younger brother to Angel D'Brightaine - my superior."

"So I was right when I said you were a douchebag then?" Samuel glared at him. "Be silent, demon... My codename is Demon, just so you know... Since you will not live long enough to tell the tale any way - it was I who helped Angel take over. He called on my services - I owed it to him since he did raise me when our parents died... I may be adopted, but I still have honor to show!" Deon laughed. "Well if you are Devin, you are sorely disillusioned. If you are 'Samuel' then you are an idiot anyway." "I said silence! I am one of the chosen Seven - born in to this world to save it from the foul demon that rules over Hell! It was I who read Arthur's mind, I who pinpointed and plotted when and where he would be - I who took Excalibur from him and gave it to my brother and I who has since earned the right to fight for my brother!" "You're also an ass." "It's a pity I was not born a half demon... Angel saved my life because it was not my fault I am born the way I am. My mother was attacked before my birth by a demon, and the attack lead me to gaining demonic powers. Cliche, I know, but nontheless... I, Samuel D'Brightaine, who could not even acquire a Demon Form, have been given hope!" He then pulled out a syringe and smirked, pointing it at his neck. "Behold! The Chimera Sample! Given to me by my brother... I have been given another chance - I have been given the right to fight... Now, Deon Morris, prepare to meet you're maker!" And with that, Samuel stabbed the syringe into his neck, sending the demon blood into his body.

Deon simply sighed. "Can you at least untie me first, dumbass?" Samuel chuckled and pulled the syringe out, dropping it as he stepped down on it with a sudden increase in strength. "No.... I will enjoy torturing you as my brother watches you suffer from above!" And then, Samuel started to shake as he screamed out in pain, his veins glowing red as his skin began to tear off, his upper body starting to grow as he began to turn demonic. Deon sighed and grinned. "See where that gets you, eh?" The transformation continued as Samuel's eyes turned yellow, his body turning green as his body changed and finally stopped. The newly transformed Samuel smirked as he looked at Deon. "So... Monster. What do you think of my new form?" "You look like a demonic, overgrown green phallus." The demon Samuel growled as he went to punch Deon in the stomach. Deon laughed. Samuel let out a loud roar at this, using his Soundweaving ability to attempt to make Deon's head blow up. Deon grinned, shouting along with Samuel just to toy with him. "You bastard!" Samuel shouted as the pool behind him began to rapidly fill with water. Using his telekinesis, he sent three syringes of holy water into Deon's chest. "I have plenty more where that came from, monster!" Deon laughed, "Oooooh, so scaaaary!" Samuel rose his hand up at this, hitting Deon in the head as he would accidentally break Deon's bindings and send him crashing towards the ground. Deon slammed into the ground before rolling onto his feet and smirking. "Like I said. Dumbass."

"Three days I was trained! Three days Angel helped retrained me from the ways Arthur had taught me! I was always weaker then everyone else - I was the weakest of the children! But now I will become the second most powerful. And then, THE most powerful - once I have devoured you!" Using his Blinking ability, he appeared in front of Deon and aimed to stab him with the front weird-arm things he had grown. Deon smirked, vanishing using his speed and sending a punch into Samuel's spinal cord. Samuel, to his surprise, would use his Blinking and Precognition ability to appear behind Deon. "Fool! I can tell what move you are going to make before you even make it! You stand NO chance!" Deon vanished again before appearing on the cross, sitting there and laughing. "I knew you'd do that..." Using his Soundweaving ability, he shouted out as the cross Deon sat on would explode. "Soon you will drown in a pool of holy water! And then, I will EAT you! I am the superior fighter here - I AM --" Deon slammed his foot into Samuel's head, and pushed himself away before shooting a few rounds into the demon. "Too busy with your own gloating, eh!?" Samuel screamed out as he gritted his teeth in anger. "How can this be? I don't understand... I knew you were going to do that, yet I couldn't react?!? Impossible! I am Samuel D'Brightaine - the second most powerful Exorcist in the WDL! I know... I'll read your mind and BREAK IT!" With that, Samuel went to use his telepathy to invade Deon's mind.

Deon simply grinned, reaching into his chest and.... pulling out a Scythe. "Well if it's mindgames you want, it's mindgames you'll get~" "W-what is that? That isn't registered in the WDL files... Answer me, demon! Where did you get that weapon!??!" Deon vanished, slamming the Scythe into Samuel and throwing him through the massive window that was behind them. "Hooooooome Ruuuuuuuuuuun!~" Samuel screamed as he was sent flying. Samuel then reappeared flying in the room, screaming as he fell into the pool of holy water - as several pipes in the room broke and the water began to rise above the pool's level. Steam rose out of the holy water as all was silent... ... Too silent. Deon grinned, watching the water and twirling his Scythe. "Meeeeoooooow~" Out of the water rose a much larger monster - Samuel, having mutated, roared out at him as some of his body glowed red from the holy water. However, it's new harder body reduced most of the effects of the holy water, although it could still be seen somewhat harming Samuel. Samuel then went crashing down at Deon as he went to bite his head. Deon smirked, rolling out of the way and slamming his Scythe into the things head with a grin. "Bullseye!~" The scythe was stopped as it was stuck within Samuel's head. It rose up as it shook it's head savagely side to side, trying to shake off Deon and the scythe off. When that failed, however, it roared out before diving down into the holy water and began to crash itself into the walls of the pool - cracking them and beginning to break them down as water began to rapidly fill in the cracks it made.

Deon kept hold of the Scythe, pulling himself forward and pulling a Knife out of his chest before stabbing it into Samuel's eye. "Haha!~" Samuel screamed out as in it's rage, it went crashing into the walls at a faster rate as on it's third try it broke them down - sending Holy water crashing in where the breaking wall was. The other walls soon followed suit - the entire floor soon collapsing as holy water rushed in - the entire floor soon being replaced in just mere moments by the water. Samuel began to rapidly swim around in it's newer environment, keeping underwater the entire time. Deon was running out of breath, and he needed to get to the surface because of both that and the holy water. "Gah..." Deon grimaced, tugging on his Scythe and having it not budge. Deon growled before pushing off of Samuel and shooting to the surface. As he reached it he took in a massive gulp of air and readied his Knife. "Fuck...." Samuel swam around Deon rapidly like a shark who had just found it's new food. He growled as then it went deep down to the new floor before stopping and shooting up like a missile. It then leaped out of the water and rose up near the ceiling, almost crashing into it as it faced downward and went down towards Deon, opening it's mouth as it aimed to swallow him whole. Deon smirked, letting Samuel slam down onto him as Deon's knife pierced his jaw and sent a massive cut through his entire body on the lower side. "Ha!" Samuel screamed out as it continued hurling down deeper into the room. The room shook wildly as Deon could tell it hit the bottom hard. "Ouch, that sounded like it hurt. Might be time for me to leave, it seems...." Deon looked up and found Angel, waving to him before swimming over to the broken window and preparing to jump out. "Suckers~"

However, before he could, Deon was smacked away by something rising up as the whole room shook. Samuel, having mutated once again, now was even larger and his color had changed due to the over-exposure of the holy water. A loud shriek that shook the entire room was sent out as it dived down - preparing for it's next strike. Deon somehow managed to land on a large chunk of building that wasn't underneath the Holy Water, and stood up. He looked around, trying to find Samuel before the demon could attack him. "Underneath, probably." The room shook as quickly shooting out with new speed, Samuel rose up and destroyed the piece of the building as Samuel continued rising up until it slammed Deon into the ceiling. It then backed away as he went to dive again, however, when it's tail came near Deon, the tail would smack him crashing down towards the holy water. Deon stabbed his knife into Samuel's tail before pulling another out of his chest and slowly pulling himself up towards the Demon's head, every stab with the knife going straight through Samuel's skin. Samuel's roar underwater shook the entire room and it crashed itself into the bottom before rising up and spinning around, swinging itself around as it sent Deon flying into a wall, creating cracks. Then, Samuel prepared for one final strike as it rose out of the water, heading straight for Deon as it let out a loud roar, aiming to either crash into him, or devour him.

Deon grinned, waiting until the last moment before springing forward and pulling his Scythe right out of Samuel's head and slashing it straight down his spine. "Haa!~" Samuel roared out as his body went out of control, slamming into the wall as the entire building shook and collapsed. As Deon fell down, his body became tangled up in Samuel's shrinking body as both were sent flying as the holy water carried them away until they were on WDL common grounds - Samuel now normal and surprisingly healed, with Deon not far away. However, Deon would discover Angel's best men surrounding him as they were heavily armed and ready to take him down as they waited for Angel to come. Samuel, meanwhile, rose up as he shivered. "I feel cold... I feel.... Weak.... I don't understand.... It's impossible! The Chimera Sample... I was suppose to continue to grow stronger until I died! Why?! MORRIS! Explain... Explain why I am suddenly in this form again?!?!" Deon looked up, and smirked. "Overexposure to my awesomeness, maybe? Or a chemical reaction between the Chimera Sample and the Holy water?" Deon shrugged. "Maybe Angel expected you to die sooner." Samuel gritted his teeth as he went to use telekinesis to throw a rock at him, but... ".... No.... My powers.... My powers aren't working! No... Why?! Why can't I do anything?!" He tried everything he could try - but nothing came. "Morris! What did you do to me?!" Deon held his hands out and did Jazzhands. "Maaaagiiiiiiiic!~"

Samuel gritted his teeth, but then saw Angel come over. "Brother! My powers... They aren't working! HE has done something to me - help me! I need you're help to figure out why they aren't working!" Deon smirked at Angel, who simply sighed. "Escort Samuel back to his Quarters unless he has something better to do." Angel then turned to Deon. "Go ready yourself for Kallos, Phoenix." Samuel gritted his teeth as he ripped himself free of the others as they helped him get up. Samuel then limped over to Angel. "Brother, wait! I need to know - tell me why! You said if I killed Deon Morris, I would become a Paladin and receive fame and fortune, and then we would rule over the WDL together! You promised!" Deon smirked, turning to Samuel. "Pretty shitty offer then, since it's impossible to kill me. I'm immortal, and Angel trolled you hard." "SILENCE, WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT! If my powers were working right now, I would --" Thwack! Deon's backhand sent Samuel into a nearby wall and then through it, and he smiled. "So, what was this about Kallos?" Samuel felt himself suddenly bleeding - his pain worse then ever as he looked down at the blood, his body shaking as he struggled on the spot. "..... No..... It can't be..... I'm..... Only human?" He mumbled weakly before looking up at Angel and started to crawl over to him. "..... Bro-ther..... Help..... Me...." Angel simply clicked his fingers and the guards began to pull Samuel away. "Sir, if I make make a suggestion..." A Master Knight spoke, causing the two pulling Samuel away to stop and look at him. Angel nodded.

"I say we finish the boy off and collect his blood. He has obviously lost his powers - he is worthless to our cause. Look at him... One hit from the phoenix paralyzed him from the waist down!" "I am not paralyzed!" Samuel retorted, trying to break free of the grip of the other two. "If I may do the honors?" The Master Knight spoke, taking out a bow and a holy arrow at this. Angel stood silent for a moment before speaking. "Make sure to get him in the knee for me." "In the knee?!?! BROTHER, HE'S GOING TO SHOOT ME IN THE HEAD!" "With pleasure, sir." With that, the Master Knight took aim and closed one eye. "BROTHER?!?! BROTHER, NO! STOP HIM, I BEG YOU! I'LL DO ANYTHING! ANYTHING!!!" "Tell me when to fire." The Master Knight spoke out, now pointing inbetween Samuel's eyes. Angel nodded. "Fire." As the arrow left the bow, something cut it clean in half and then slammed into the neck of the Master Knight. Deon pulled the knife out with a tug and kicked the man to the floor. "Ass." The two let go at this and left Samuel as finally, Deon was restrained by several Paladin and Master Knight's, as Samuel glared over at Angel and sneakily went out of sight as he took the arrow from the Master Knight's hand. He then raced Angel as his back was turned to him, aiming to stab him in the back of his neck. "DIE, YOU HERETIC!!!!!!!!!!!"

Deon sprung into action, knocking away the men and sliding forward, his foot slamming into Samuel's own and sending the man into the ground. Deon quickly sat on top of him and pulled both his arms behind his back and pushing his knife to his throat. "Shush..." "LET GO OF ME, YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT!!!!" Samuel shouted, struggling as he gritted his teeth. "LET. ME. GOOOO!!!!!!" With the sound of air being sliced, Deon's eyes widened as he felt something slice through him. He looked down to see Excalibur's tip resting, embedded into Samuel's skull which it had sliced cleanly through. Deon blinked before holding his head. It wasn't enough though, because his entire upper body slowly slid in half. "The hell did you hit me for?" Angel smirked. "You don't die, therefore it doesn't matter what you go through." Angel motioned for Deon to be picked up, but Deon simply stood, holding himself together. Literally. Samuel's eyes widened, and in that one moment, his life... The life he thought was his... Flashed away and another life came before him. "....Hi.....Ka.....Ri....?" He mumbled before Excalibur was pulled out of him. And with that... Samuel was dead. And his body suddenly bursted with holy fire, as it burned away at everything that was once supposedly Samuel D'Brightaine. Flesh, blood, bones and everything else - destroyed in a moment. When the fires finally stopped - there was nothing but a permanent burn spot left in his place.

~ The Bellfoar Mini-Story begins! The first fight! ~

The two teams plus Lucifer all had arrived at the town... Standing in front of them were Bellfoar, Chill and The Jello Demon, all of them looking as though they had been waiting for them to get here. Bellfoar smirked confidently, Chill stood there looking calm and collected while not showing emotion, and the Jello Demon was busy staring at the sky as if bored by all of this. Bellfoar chuckled, making him the first to speak of the three. "So, the Children have finally arrived... I suppose you're here to fight us?" "Way to go Captain Obvious." Ash replied eyeing them over, and the surroundings. It didn't look like there was any people, or any traps per se... "Well.... Jello is the first opponent to be fought." At this, Bellfoar pushed the Jello Demon forward. "Huh, what?" He mumbled. "Oh right, whatever..." Bellfoar smirked at this. "Any volunteers?" "YEAH, ME!" Sebastian shouted out in response, taking a step forward. "I have unfinished business with that blue thing!" Bellfoar rose his brows at this. "Well... I guess that means Team Children is going up first. Kane, Claire, come forward and take a bow, would you kindly?!"

"That won't be necessary." Claire stated simply, taking a seat. "I have faith these two are quite capable of handling things for the moment. Consider this training." Commenting to Sebastian and Kane, the latter gave a nod, stepping up next to his partner. "I hope you've got as much confidence as her, because I'm scared out of my mind." Sebastian gave the Jello Demon a glare at this. "Fine by me... More Jello to beat." Mireya looked at the group of demons in front of her in a nonchalant manner. Actually, she was dragged her out of her bed and as of now is trying to figure out what is going on. As of now, she can compare to some showdown which she has no idea what is about. "I just want to sleep... Let's get this done..." The Jello Demon finally looked down at them at this. "I fought you two only a few days ago... I know how strong you both are, I can easily say... This is going to be even quicker then before." With that, the Jello Demon's fingers turned into blades. Shifting his stance back, Kane drew his blade, readying it above his head, prepared for battle. Sebastian watched as the Jello Demon began to walk towards them, slowly turning it into a jog before full out running on them. Sebastian looked to Lucifer quickly and smiled before looking back at the Jello Demon with a serious look. "Who follows who's lead?" Sebastian asked Kane.

"I'll move in first. Cover me." Darting forward, Kane moved in to meet the Jello demon halfway, eyes darting to each claw, prepared to slice or block them on reaction. Sebastian crossed his arms. "..... You could warn me when to cover you." He stated. The Jello Demon smirked as he stopped in front of Kane and rapidly began to stab each sword finger at him. Stepping back, Kane flipped his sword around, focusing before stabbing it cleanly into the ground. "Firewall!" A burst of flame shot up between him and the Jello demon, aiming to prevent the claws from reaching their target. Not only that, but hopefully it'd give Sebastian something to work with. The Jello Demon watched as it's fingers were burnt, only to swing it's foot around and slice them off, watching them dissolve away before reforming new fingers as the Jello Demon leaped away from the fire. "HA! Humans are only humans!" He stated as he landed and slide back a bit. "I can easily read every move you make, boy! There's nothing you can do to surprise me! I AM THE -- AGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" Faster then Kane could keep up with, Sebastian was suddenly in front of the Jello Demon, his elbow having been slammed into his chest and been thrusted out the back. The Jello Demon could only stand there in shock and pain as Jello-like blood dripped down Sebastian's arm. Bellfoar frowned at this and began tapping his arm nervously, while Chill merely blinked as his reaction.

Kane froze a moment, withdrawing his blade and watching Sebastian in awe. Sebastian pulled his elbow free as he watched the Jello Demon put his hands over the hole, taking a step back as his body now was shaking. "You done playing around now?" Sebastian asked with a deadly tone to it. Kane hung his head a bit in shame. He was being serious the whole time... "Done...? DONE?!?! YOU THINK A MERE HALF-BREED CAN DEFEAT ME?!?! I'LL KILL YOU FOR THAT!" With that, the hole reformed and little dots began to form on the Jello Demon's body, each of them looking like bullets. "Kane, I wasn't talking to you! I need you to get out those ball things you used on Chill before..." "Huh? Oh-uh-y-right!" Kane knelt down, digging about his bag for the elemental rosary. Retrieving the necklace, he stood up, holding the cross close to him. "Alright, just let me know what you need!" "I know you'll be confused for a bit, but trust me... I'm going to tire him a bit... When I give the signal, you attack his wounds. Got that?" "But what if I miss?!" Kane stated for a moment, before shaking his head. No, he'd trained for this. He wouldn't miss. He couldn't let Sebastian down. He was an exorcist. "I have faith Claire trained you... Just as I have hope you have faith in my new abilities.... Now do me a favor. RUN OUT OF THE WAY NOW!!!"

At this, the Jello Demon roared out and sent hundreds of jello-bullets at them. Kane blinked. Then dived, tumbling into the nearby shrubbery for cover before taking off at a run. At this, Sebastian vanished from sight again. He reappeared behind the Jello Demon and sent a kick at him, but the Jello Demon was ready this time as he stopped sending out his bullets and spun around, using his arm to block Sebastian's kick. Then the two began throwing rapid punches at one another, locked in heavy physical combat. Lucifer smirked, standing near Claire and speaking. "Ever since he got that upgrade, he's been so much stronger! GO SEBASTIAN, GO!" "He's certainly come a long way." Claire mused, continuing to scrutinize the battle unfolding. Mireya's eyes were somewhat hazed as she watched the fight. However, it was something that had gone unnoticed. Sebastian ducked from one of the Jello Demon's attacks as Sebastian used this opening to rapidly punch him in the chest. The Jello Demon groaned out as pieces of him were sent flying in multiple directions, Sebastian making multiple holes in his chest. Then he stopped and took a step back as the Jello Demon quickly began to regenerate back. During this, the Jello Demon formed his fist into a hammer-like shape as he slammed it down towards him. But Sebastian raised a hand and stopped it, glaring at the Jello Demon as the Jello Demon struggled to even push it, but felt nothing. Sebastian then knocked his arm away and sent a foot up into his chin, and at this, a short sonic boom occurred as the Jello Demon was sent flying several feet up into the air, before blasting back down just as quickly and then with the third hit, was slammed into the ground by Sebastian's foot on his head, creating cracks on the ground as he did this.

Sebastian stepped back at this as he watched the Jello Demon weakly rise, glaring at Sebastian as he went to form his arm into something else, but Sebastian quickly moved in and punched him in the face, caving his face in as Sebastian backed away again. The Jello Demon's face soon returned to normal as he struggled to keep standing. ".... You.... What did you do?" The Jello Demon weakly mumbled. "Oh, you know... I ate some weird looking pills." Sebastian commented, glancing around to see where Kane was. "PILLS?! ARE YOU TELLING ME YOU CHEATED?" "Don't crap yourself now... I was joking." "I can feel it... You're power.... With each strike you make, I am coming closer to understanding how far out of league we are..." "Now you get it? Good god, I'm so bored with you already... But at the same time I want to make you pay..." "Learning is good... material" Striding forward, muttering words of prayer under his breath, Kane stepped up, tearing off the beads of his rosary and holding them between his fingers. Finally, he stood close enough to the demon to throw them demon. "...Bring forth salvation to this tormented demon's soul!" With a violent crack, Kane chucked the beads down into an explosion of flame. "WHAT?!" The Jello Demon exclaimed, before being caught in this as Sebastian stood in place calmly, watching the explosion in front of him as he narrowed his eyes.

".... That looked like it hurt a lot." Sebastian merely said as it started to die down. Kane knelt down before the demon's smoldering body, closing his eyes and drawing a cross across his chest. The Jello Demon laughed crazily as the smoke finally cleared, his body covered with multiple burn spots as he wasn't even shaking anymore. Then, his eyes rolled into the back of his head as he fell backwards and began to dissolve away. "Heh.... Nice work Kane." Sebastian then looked over towards Chill. Kane nodded, standing up. "You too." "So, you're next, right?!" Sebastian claimed. Chill smirked and shook his head at this. Sebastian rose a brow at this... Before a spear made out of Jello was sent at his left shoulder. Mireya's eyes returned to normal as she blinked a couple of times. With a slight half-step, Kane sliced the spear mid strike, holding his katana at the ready, prepared for any more deflections. "Hahahahahaha...." The crazy laugh returned, as in the distance a few feet away could be seen standing... The Jello Demon, with an arm missing and a portion of his right side gone. Smiling, he shouted over his shoulder to Claire. "You see that? I did it!" Kane seemed pleased with himself, while Claire simply nodded. Training his intuition was a wise move, however... "Don't let your guard down until your adversary is defeated."

The Jello Demon's arm returned as his smirk grew at this. ".... Yes.... Listen to the bitch." He said as his right side reformed as well. ".... Now... You've pissed me off.... It's time to -- UGH!!" The Jello Demon's body suddenly grew stiff as The Jello Demon gritted his teeth... Looking over towards Bellfoar, who was holding up a paper with a seal on it, the seal glowing brightly and obviously showing signs of it making the Jello Demon feel like he was burning. "..... Damn you..... Bellfoar! I'll kill you..... For that!" The Jello Demon said through his teeth. "You are a Shikigami serving Balarus of Kallos... You are a dog, nothing more to me. If you want, I'll just..." With that, Bellfoar generated lightning in his hand as he held his hand in front of the seal. "NO, STOP IT, NO! DON'T YOU DARE! BELLFOAR! I'LL KILL YOU! I'LL KILL YOU UNTIL YOU CHOKE ON YOUR OWN BLOOD!!" "Then you will obey and listen to me." The Jello Demon glared darkly at him in response. "Good." Bellfoar's hand returned to normal as the paper vanished, and the Jello Demon collapsed on to his knees, struggling to breath.

~ The twist! Bellfoar's scheme! ~

Bellfoar then looked over at Sebastian and Kane. "Very well done boys... But I have a proposal to make. You see... The truth of the matter is, right now I am merely stalling you with these fights so that the bomb I have set up will detonate." "BOMB?!" Sebastian said, suddenly having a look of panic on his face. "You'll tell us what where it is and how to stop it right now you scum!" Kane shifted into an aggressive stance. Bellfoar laughed at this. "... It? You mean them, don't you?" Sebastian glared at him. ".... What?" Bellfoar smirked at this. "Right now... In every town close to the WDL is a bomb... Made by me. Each bomb will go off at the same time when I want them to... And every town will be obliterated, along with every stupid human in them right now." "Let me guess.... Even if we found them, we couldn't deactivate them, right?" Sebastian guessed. "Correct. The only way to stop them... Is to defeat me." Mireya looked at the one called Bellfoar. "Beat him to a bloody pulp then." "With pleasure." Ash commented, punching her fist into her hand. "I was getting tired of sitting back." Chill cleared his throat at this. "... Unfortunately, you will have to play by our rules. Bellfoar here can make the bombs go off at any moment, any second, any time... If you really want to test him - do it now." "You cowardly bastard!" Ash growled, gritting her teeth. "I assume that means you believe us enough not to pull any stupid heroic stunts." Chill stated, looking over at Lucifer at this. "... Ah Lucy... You know me not to be a liar, right?"

"Either way..." Bellfoar resumed for Chill. "... It's time to make a deal. Sebastian, Kane... If you want to continue, why not make things... Interesting?" Sebastian glared at him. ".... What is it first?" Mireya stretched her arms and looked at the boys. Bellfoar chuckled. "Glad you asked... Why don't you step out of the fight and leave Kane here to fight the Jello Demon alone? Unless, of course... You want me to blow up several children at once right now?" Sebastian clutched his fists at this and started to shake. "I accept the challenge." Kane stated, without hesitation. Mireya raised a perfectly shaped eyebrow. "Do that and then nothing is holding us back by annihilating you now." Bellfoar glared over at Mireya at this. "... Excuse me? Care to repeat your words?" Sebastian gritted his teeth. ".... It's not just one town he has right now.... He has several.... Who knows how many they have bombs in! It could be dozens!" Mireya smirked. "Why are you deaf or short on the brain function?" Mireya looked at Sebastian. Bellfoar narrowed his eyes at her. ".... Do you want an example right now?! Huh stupid brat?!" "I am aware of that." Sebastian briefly glared over at her before returning his gaze to Bellfoar. ".... Claire.... Can you kindly tell her to shut the hell up?" Mireya looked at Bellfoar again. "If he does it. he loses his leverage now... And if anything happens to the people I care about... I'll eliminate your entire existence now." "Revenge will help you little when you're ruminating over your decisions." Claire stated, looking to Mireya. "For now, we play his game."

Lucifer, who had been glaring at Chill for a while, spoke. "Chill, right? Is that your new name? Come on, where did you 'creative genes' vanish to, dickhead?" Lucifer growled. "What's the point of being our enemy, huh? I mean, it's not OUR fault that Sebastian's straight!" Lucifer glared. "If you want to fight us, fight us because of something aside from being rejected by Sebastian." "...Did I hear that right?" Ash paused a moment, feeling a little awkward. Chill glared at her. "... So he told you, did he?" Mireya looked at Claire and then closed her eyes. "Revenge is not even on my top list." Despite saying that, she remained silent. Especially upon hearing the next statements. Lucifer took a step forward, moving between Chill and Sebastian. "Yes, he did. Fuckwit. Tell me, why did you really become a Demon. Tell me it's not because of what happened. Please! Jesus, give me a good reason! So what?" Lucifer scoffed. "You're just some lovesick psychopath that's turned evil because he couldn't get what he wanted? The fuck man? I mean, sure, you were cool and everything but I MEAN COME ON!" Lucifer looked down. "GIVE ME A REAL REASON! TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD! SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU LOOK STUPID, ROB! YOU USED TO BE AN AWESOME GUY TO HANG AND CHAT WITH, AND NOW LOOK AT YOU! WHAT THE FUCK MAN! WHAT THE FUCK!" Lucifer shook her head and growled. "I'm not Satan, so I won't continue this. The fact is, you were still my friend until I found out that you became a... a Demon. No, not a Demon. Demon's can be good or evil, you've just become... evil." Lucifer simply glared, then looked away.

"IT WASN'T MY CHOICE!" Chill finally bursted with emotion. Lucifer turned back to Chill, and spoke with an icy, poisonous tone. "Everyone has a choice." "Really? DO YOU KNOW WHAT KALLOS DID TO ME?!?! THE MONTHS OF TORTURE AND PAIN HE PUT ME THROUGH?!?! ONLY FOR ME TO AWAKEN AND MY FIRST ORDERS BE KILL THE MAN I LOVED?!?!" Sebastian sighed. "... In case no one's caught on.... He likes men." "YES, YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE ROB! ALWAYS! YOU COULD'VE STILL SAID NO, BUT YOU KNOW, YOU GAVE IN LIKE USUAL! YOU USED TO BE STRONG, KIND AND... AND AWESOME, BUT NOW YOU'RE JUST A PUPPET ON ANOTHER BAD GUYS STRINGS! YOU USED TO BE INDEPENDENT, SMART AND CHARMING, NOW YOU'RE JUST.... You're just.... You're not even who you used to be anymore." Keilani remained quiet for the entire conversations. She was not sure what to do or say but she embraced herself. The burst of emotions were too much for her. She could feel as if it was hers which she doesn't understand why. Mireya opened her eyes and sighed. She was not that big on drama. "SHUT UP!!!!!!!!! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE DID! IT WAS SO SUDDEN, I DIDN'T ASK TO BECOME AN ICE DEMON - LET ALONE ONE! HE SAID HE COULD TELL ME WHERE I COULD FIND HIM - I AGREED, AND HE FROZE ME! THE BASTARD FROZE ME UNTIL I LOST MY HAIR AND BECAME A FREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Keilani stepped back further. She could feel her head about to burst. Mireya glanced at her and sighed. "YOU'RE NOT A FREAK, YOU'RE A DEMON JUST LIKE I AM! EVEN NOW YOU STILL HAVE A CHOICE WHETHER OR NOT YOU'LL OBEY HIM OR NOT! IF IT WAS ME IN YOUR POSITION YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO! I WOULD TELL HIM TO GO FUCK HIMSELF, YOU KNOW THAT!" Before Chill could reply, Lucifer marched over to him and slapped him across the face. "AND DIE?!?! YEAH, NICE GOING! BUT I HATE YOU! YOU TOOK HIM AWAY - YOU STOLE HIS HEART! WHEN YOU LEFT, ALL HE COULD THINK ABOUT WAS LUCY THIS, LUCY THAT! EVEN WHEN HE RAN AWAY, IT WAS TO FIND YOUR STUPID ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAYBE IF YOU HADN'T COME AT ALL, I WOULD STILL BE HUMAN! BUT NO! ROB IS DEAD! NOW, STANDING BEFORE YOU, IS CHILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" And his eyes glowed bright blue as he was slapped, Lucifer could tell quicker then the others... He had a Demon Form. "Keilani, are you okay?" Mireya asked in a casual manner. She really has no interest with the dramatic banter going on. Keilani looked at Mireya and gave a rather weak smile. "I think so..." Lucifer didn't react much to Chill's change, she simply growled. "Yes. Rob is dead. I can see that now. You're not even like you used to be anymore. You're a pathetic, weak little idiot who couldn't handle being rejected... No, no. You're worse than that. You're like, the lowest form of Demon there is. You're not even a real Demon." Lucifer glared, and spoke. "What're you gonna do now? Kill me?"

".... Yes." And with that, a blue portal opened underneath them as both would fall into it before it closed on them. Sebastian narrowed his eyes at this. "Do not worry." Bellfoar stated. "Chill has only taken her some feet away to... Finish her off." Snapping his fingers at this, a gray portal opened near The Jello Demon and Kane. "... You two will go in there. Claire will follow to witness the fight - just in case things to sour." The Jello Demon responded at this, entering into the portal as he looked back at Kane as he was entering it. "You are lucky... You two will be the first humans to enter our base." With that, the Jello Demon vanished into the portal. Kane and Claire following suit before it too closed on them - Claire had seen the importance of the situation in entering the base, and Kane.... Well, he had a fight to finish with this prick. Mireya glanced over the events. "Then pull yourself together... it's about to get nasty." She warned Keilani. Bellfoar chuckled at this, looking over at the three girls as Sebastian walked off to the side. "Do not worry... He will only enter if you three are in trouble. So, with that said..." Bellfoar spread out his arm as lightning hit him, thunder sounding out afterword as the sky began to fill with clouds... ".... Let's do this~" Keilani's eyes widened in horror upon the sight of lightning an the rumble of thunder. She quickly held her head and crouched to the ground. Her body shivered in fear. Mireya looked at Keilani. "You okay?"

"Do you forfeit little lady?" Bellfoar said, taking a step forward as more thunder sounded out. Keilani didn't move from her position as she covered her face from everyone's sight. "Please..." Mireya stood in front of Keilani and narrowed her eyes. "Leave her alone." "Ha... This is too easy." Bellfoar stated, and charged forward!

~ Kane fights the Jello Demon! ~

The room had an empty feeling to it as they appeared in it. Around them were multiple holes in walls as the room felt too big to be a common room. They had been sent here for a purpose. They weren't given an idea of how big the base itself was, but the room was certainly around the same width as the town they had just left was. The Jello Demon stopped as he turned around to look at Kane and Claire. "So, Mr. Kane... Are you ready to die?" Kane gestured with a T symbol with his hands. "Uh, Time Out? I gotta consult with my coach." The Jello Demon blinked and sat down near a wall at this. "... Fine, do it." The two and the cat joined in a huddle, discussing the situation at hand. Nods were going around. The Jello Demon merely waited at this, tapping it's foot impatiently. "So uh, are there any rules Jelly?" Kane asked, sitting up a moment. The Jello Demon got up to his feet at this. "None that I can think of, no. Do YOU have any rules?" "Well... What happens if I win?" "Simple... I let you two go, and I'll show you to Kallos' room..." "And if you're dead?" Claire asked, Deadpan. "Then you cannot fulfill your mission... After all, only I out of the three of us know this base inside and out." "Soooo... How do I win?" Kane asked, scratching his head. "You defeat me to the point where I am unable to fight back... You'll see what I mean in a minute, but first... You are here to kill Kallos, I assume?"

"I'm here to protect people from harm. That's all." Kane had taken the time to step away from Claire and Noir, striding towards the center of the room. "Do you mind if I let you in on a little... Secret then?" "I'm listening." Kane nodded, having not drawn his sword. "Do you remember the bombs Bellfoar mentioned?" "How could I forget?" Kane muttered. "It's a lie, there are no bombs." "Then what am I here for? What's your plan?" Kane inquired. "We three are the distractions of the group... We are meant to fight until, well... The Renegade Base and the WDL Base have been completely infiltrated and destroyed. No doubt first the Renegade Base will fall, since Kallos plans on starting the attack early morning tomorrow..." "What?! Claire, we have to-" "Focus on the task at hand Kane. Do what you can, before attempting what you can't." Claire commented, calming him for the moment. Kane nodded, turning back to the Demon. "I won't let you do that." "Then let's make things interesting." And with that, the Jello Demon punched the wall near him as a tile of it broke to reveal a hidden lever. Grabbing it, the Jello Demon pulled it down as the entire room shook at this. Kane stumbled, but managed to hold his balance as he drew his sword. "What did you do?!"

The Jello Demon smirked as jello began to fill the room at this. "I think you know what I meant now..." With that, the Jello Demon ran past Kane and jumped head first into the jello. Then, a large amount of the room lowered from the rest in a pool-like shape as the jello began to fill the pool. "Uh, one of my rules is that you're not allowed to fill the room with Jello?" Kane stated feebly. "I think it's too late to make that rule now..." A much louder voice spoke, as a much larger version of The Jello Demon's upper body rose out of the growing jello, continuing to grow as more jello filled the pool. "Come on! How is this fair?" Kane whined, backing up some. "You should of reconsidered fighting a demon made entirely out of Jello then!" He spoke out before forming a sword from his body and pulling it out as the jello reached the top of the pool and stopped filling it at this. The Jello Demon then swung the sword it had formed from it's body at him. "Uh, Timeout again...?" Kane made the symbol before diving aside to avoid the jello blade, rolling once before taking off at a run. "Oh for the love of... Fine..." He pulled the blade up as he crossed his arms, waiting. Kane went back over to Claire, both discussing again for a brief while. "Would it be alright if you got rid of the pool? You can keep the jello, but uh... I need the space to run around." "So you want to drown in my jello?"

"Can't you just make it part of your body and make a nice flat floor?" Kane pleaded, putting his hands together. "I really don't want to swim in Jello..." ".... You think I'm going to do that?!? Are you stupid or something?! If I absorb this crap, I shrink down!" "Wait, what? Doesn't more Jello make you bigger?" Kane asked, looking very much stupid. "I'm merged with it.... That's how I'm so big! If I absorb it, it goes into me, therefore shrinking my body down in the process! I swear, I have to explain this every time to you mortals!" "Oh..." Kane thought a moment, before looking to Claire, who shrugged. "Well, I guess I'll just have to make do..." Kane sighed, slowly walking back to the spot he was in before. "Are we finally ready to begin then?!" Kane nodded, lifting up his sword. "Okay, let's do this!" "Good." At this, small dots appeared all over his body again, just like the last time it did this. "I'm tired of looking at you." Kane began fishing about in his bag, hurrying to find what he needed. The Jello Demon then rapidly fired down jello bullets at him. "Firewall!" Kane gave another shout as he made his shield, keeping his sword buried as the flames formed a barrier for him. "OH-ho, THIS again, huh?! Well, screw that! HERE COMES MY SWORD!" And true to his word, he thrusted the sword down at Kane.

With a wild swing, Kane threw his Holy water over the approaching Jello sword, trying to buy time. The Jello Demon stopped as he looked at the small little spots that now appeared all over his sword. ".... What the hell is this?!? Are you really this pathetic and weak?!?! Oh-ho, oh man... I'm sorry, this is too funny for me to waste..." The Jello Demon was chuckling at this. "Hey, gimme a break! I didn't know you could grow!" "I didn't know you were so weak... Look at you! Your so weak, your mother thinks you weren't worth being born!" The Jello Demon laughed at this. "You might be right, but that's not going to stop me." Kane sat up, his Rosary in hand as he muttered a prayer, before hurling the beads at the pool of Jello, Ice bursting forth as they made contact, aiming to freeze the base of liquid goo. "What the hell is this crap!? It's so.... Pathetic!" He laughed at this as he rose a hand and slammed his hand down at the ice, smashing most of it as he continued laughing. "How pathetic!" Running his hand along the blade of his sword, Kane muttered his prayer, making the Katana flame as he slashed, sending waves of fire at the Jello demon. "Ohhh right, like your attacks are going to do anything to me now..." The Jello Demon was hit by a few of these waves as he inhaled at this. He then blew out wind at the next waves of fire as he blew them out, and sent gusts of wind down at Kane.

Kane held his arm up to shield himself, waving his sword about. The shots were well off however, flying up well above the Jello Demon. Evidently he wasn't handling the wind well. The Jello Demon smirked as he stopped for a second and inhaled again, before blowing down harder at him. Kane staggered back, before falling over backwards, tumbling back with his bag to the wall. The Jello Demon laughed loudly at this. "Oh wow, look at you! You are suppose to be a man?!?! The CHILD was stronger then you're weak ass!" The Jello Demon continued laughing at this. Sitting up, Kane patted down his smoldering jacket before giving one final slash with his flaming sword. This one shot upwards, again, well above the demon. "I think that looks about right." He commented, appraising his work. The Jello Demon rose a brow at this. "What?! You completely missed me!" Kane pointed his thumb up. Above the Jello demon, was a strange set of symbols singed into the ceiling. The exact same as the seal that Belfoar had previously placed on him. Placing his hands together with his sword, Kane began to chant, the symbol rapidly brightening to a pulsating red. ".... Huh, something feels off about this situation.... Maybe I should look up." The Jello Demon did so at this. ".... Oh..... Should of seen that one coming." Kane continued to chant, praying that this seal would be enough to stop or eliminate the demon...

The Jello Demon started to yell out at this as his body started to glow at this, symbols rapidly appearing all over him as smoke started to come from each of them. "YOU RETARD! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS SYMBOL EVEN MEANS?!?!?" Kane didn't respond, continuing his Mantra as he relaxed himself, focusing on nothing but his words and the symbols. "GOD DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!" The Jello Demon then blew up - sending blood jello all over the room at this. Claire slowly lowered the barrier over herself and Noir, appraising the mess around them. Kane meanwhile, slowly opened his eyes, having stopped the chant at the slimy feeling over him. The Jello Demon, now back to his original size, climbed out of the pool as he panted at this. ".... Well that went wrong. I still have a few feet of jello left... I can probably still jump in there right now and kill him while his guard is down." "I wouldn't if I were you. Unless you feel like having that happen again." Claire commented from her seat, watching the Jello demon with scrutiny. "..... Do you know anything about Shikigami?" "Familiars. Yes, I'm quite informed about them." Claire responded, briefly glancing to Noir. "Then you should know that symbol he made is now ineffective..." "Perhaps. But it's quite easy to form a variation that will essentially perform the same act." The Jello Demon growled at this. "Now, I believe you made us a promise, correct?" Claire stood up, striding across the room.

The Jello Demon rose up to his feet at this. ".... So I did.... This way..." He stated as he began to walk out of the room. Claire kept her mind ready, focusing to be sure of any betrayal or trap on the demon's part. ".... Is the boy coming?" Kane was shaking off his jacket, wiping off strands of Jello as he hurried after them, Noir licking up some of the jelly in his hair. ".... Right." He stated and continued walking. It took several minutes to travel around the base's halls - Kane and Claire passed by several things at this - some of them were portraits of different Crystal Demons. Others were of noticeable family symbols - then they passed by portraits of each demon in the group... The Jello Demon, Kallos, Yami, Eppenos, Kalhman, Golem, Bellfoar, Itzhet and another rock demon they couldn't recognize... Golem and this rock demon had the same symbol on the bottom of they're portrait, while Yami had a similar looking royal symbol, but in darkness demon form. "So where are we going again?" Kane asked aloud, stopping at the pictures every now and then. "To Kallos' main room..." Claire would know about the symbols, Kane didn't notice them The Jello Demon stopped briefly to look at the portrait of the other rock demon. "Always wondered what the poor bastard looked like..."

"Who, this guy?" Kane asked, looking to the portrait. "This rock demon? This is Gaea - Demon King of Earth." "So is he dead?" Kane inquired, taking a guess from the Jello demon's tone. "No... He is dying though. Deon ended up nearly blowing up the bastard... Left him for dead - Gaea was then captured by the WDL and has been in there ever since. "His last son, Golem, is the only rock demon who can take his place currently... Sadly, he's too dumb for it. Gaea is the smartest rock demon in history yet... But let's keep moving on, shall we?" Kane nodded, feeling like he was on a museum tour. "Right then..." With that, the Jello Demon continued leading them on.

~ Lucifer confronts Chill! ~

Chill and Lucifer reappeared in the same town just several feet away from the fight. "... So... I still remember when you pierced my chest." Chill pointed to his chest at this, showing a little mark still left in the spot. "You WERE being a bit of a douchebag that day." Lucifer smirked. Chill glared. "... I'm tempted to use Demon Form, but... You're master is gone, and I have taken Sebastian away from you, so... You are powerless!" "So we can't just sit down and talk like adults, Rob?" "After you just slapped me? I only got one thing to say to you..." He pointed his hand at her. "Screw off." He then sent ice shards at her. Lucifer simply whistled as the Shards went straight through her. "You've forgotten my abilities already? Damn...." "You didn't use them much last time." He stated as he created an ice spear from his body and threw it at her. Lucifer simply moved a little to the left and sighed. "I'm sorry I slapped you, alright? It was just a spur of the moment thing, you know?" "So.... Demon form is the only thing that will work, huh? Fine... Demon form it is." At this, Chill's body was quickly frozen over. "Well, I guess talking to you isn't a viable option anymore, is it?" Lucifer sighed. "And I didn't mean to steal his heart either, Lovebird. I only found out a while ago.... Well I mean I knew he liked me, but not this much..."

"SILENCE!!!" At this, the ice shattered and up rose a nine foot version of Chill... His right arm having turned into an axe, and his form having changed. "Implying you can tell me what to do. Dumbass." "I know you hooked up with him.... I know it! Now... To freeze you." Chill's deep booming voice said as he rose up his axe arm and swung it down at her. Lucifer simply sighed, leaping out of the way and locking eyes with Chill. "I know that neither Deon nor Sebastian would want me to do this, but you're leaving me with no choice." Lucifer stood, floating into the air slightly and seeming to glow. "My Father was an Ancient, as were the fathers of my Sisters. My Father, the embodiment of Pride itself, Lucifer, has passed on his powers to me. I am not Lucy, or Luci. I am Lucifer, representation of the cardinal sin of PRIDE." Lucifer's eyes went cold and dark, and her tone had a bitter, icy edge to it. "I hereby decree that you will be sentenced to eternity in Purgatory, fool." With that, Lucifer held her hand out and a spear appeared, falling into it. Lucifer turned to Chill, and spoke. "Come." Chill stood there, watching her. "... What are you waiting for? Send me away then..." He spread his arms out at this. "... Good luck explaining to Sebastian why he couldn't save me though." Lucifer growled. "Oh shut up, I was being dramatic!" With that, she threw he arm back and then threw her spear straight into Chill, but instead of killing him, he was reverted back to his normal form.

Chill chuckled as he stood there back in his normal form. ".... That it?" He asked. Lucifer landed on the ground. "I told you I wouldn't fight you, Rob." "Then allow me to kill you." He said as he took out the spear without hesitation and threw it to the side. Lucifer sighed. "And do you think that will make Sebastian love you, or hate you even more, Rob?" ".... I intend to send him with you." "..... You serious?" "I wouldn't say it otherwise." "What the hell is wrong with you? We used to be so close, and now you're trying to kill us for... why again?" "Because I'm being punished for dis-obeying orders." "....Disobeying orders?" "Yes.... The day I introduced myself to you both as Chill. I left the base and went to Sebastian without permission. Everything I did that day was against what Kallos wanted me to do." ".....Thank you, then. For disobeying orders... I was told you were dead" "Rob is dead.... Chill is all that is left." ".......No....Rob is not dead....." "Really? Then you know a cure?"

"A cure for what, being a demon? There is no cure. It's all about how you act. You have Demons like Kallos who ARE evil, then you have demons like me who aren't. Then you have Demons like you who haven't chosen a side. You just need to pick the side you'd rather be on, or just not pick any. You always have a choice, Rob." "I already made my decision a looonnng time ago.." He looked behind himself at this. ".... Bellfoar is going full power soon. They must win... In order for Sebastian to fight me, one last time." "So you want to fight us?" "Not you.... Him. To the death." "What's the point of that!?" ".... You will see. Now go!" With that, Chill vanished into a blue portal. Lucifer was left there, alone. She looked around, then dropped onto her knees. "Think of Seb, think of Seb!" And suddenly she was with Sebastian, watching him. "Hmmmm....."

~ Meanwhile, at the Renegade Base... Quake VS Ronald Klutz! ~

Ronald appeared in the Renegade Base in a bright flash, stepping away from the holy device that had brought him in here. "Return." Ronald said quietly, as the device returned to his hand and formed into a gauntlet. "Now... To find the control room." Quake laughed and threw a rock at Ronald. "Yo pipsqueak, want some Sake?" Ronald caught the rock with his gauntlet, crushing it as he glared over at her. "Quake... I heard the news." Quake tossed another bit of steak into her mouth and grinned. "That today is Friday?" "No... But you know why I'm here. The control room... Take me to it. Now." "....Erm... Whyyyyyyyyyy?" "Angel's orders. I don't think you want to upset him, do you?" "He's gonna die anyway." Ronald draws out his sword at this. "Do not speak badly about him in such a manner!" "I'm an Oni. He's a disrespective, cowardly, cheatng, lying dog. Did you expect any different?" Quake stood, glaring daggers at Ronald. "Do you have a Farm?" "No... I don't think you are taking this seriously either." Ronald started to walk towards her at this. "... So I'll kill you." "Are you a clown in disguise? Ronald McDonald?" Ronald threw his sword at her. Quake caught it. "Oooh, thanks!" "Old man Ronald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o. And on that Farm they had a dick, e-i-e-i-o." Quake snickered. "How old are you anyway?" "Twenty-four." He stated, slowly twisting something on his gauntlet.

Quake smiled. "Wow, you're not old at all! So uhh, do you want your sword back, Clownface?" "Of course I do, you stupid demon." Quake smirked. "Too bad~" Then she snapped the sword clean in half with one hand. "... You shouldn't of done that." "No BEN, nooooooo! Haha, why not?" Ronald rose up his hand with the gauntlet on it as the gauntlet had a sinister purple aura around it now. The pieces of the sword glowed with this same aura as they all slowly rose off the ground. Then, every piece suddenly pointed at Quake as Ronald closed his hand into a fist, all the pieces flying at her at this. Quake simply ducked, rolling away and avoiding all of the shards. "Missed me, missed me, now ya gotta ki- On second thought, scratch that. You look like a horrible kisser." Ronald jerked his arm back at this comment as the pieces stopping and spun around quickly, all heading for Quake's back now. Quake laughed and ran behind Ronald. Ronald thrusted out his hand and stopped every piece. The handle came flying over as Ronald took a hold of it, every piece coming into place as once the blade was re-assembled, every crack on it glowed red as steam came from it until the cracks were gone. Once the blade was restored by the gauntlet, Ronald was sweating. Quake turned and punched Ronald in the face. "DONKEY PUNCH!" Ronald felt his eyes widen as he was sent flying into a wall from this.

Ronald slowly began to rise from the rubble he was put in, putting a hand over his face as he shuddered from his now bleeding armor. He grabbed a hold of his nose as he closed his eyes, taking sharp quick breaths as he prepared himself. Then he snapped it back into place and dropped his sword, screaming out as he collapsed, putting hands on his face as he shuddered from the pain. Quake walked over to Ronald. "Shit, didn't think you'd get sent flying like that. Heh, how damn strong am I~" Quake looked over at Ronald, and sighed. "Time to take you to the Infirmary?" "SCREW OFF!" He shouted as he got up and grabbed his blade, getting up to his feet as he panted, having one eye closed as he gritted his teeth. "I don't need help... .From a damn.... Dirty.... Demon!" Quake sighed. "I'm not dirty, I just had a shower, dumbass. Hence why I'm standing here in front of you wearing nothing but a towel?" Quake smirked and blew Ronald a kiss. Ronald gritted his teeth at this again. "Screw off.... Screw off! I will not accept help from you again! I DON'T NEED IT! I CAN DO IT! I CAN BEAT YOU!" He stumbled forward at this and swung his sword at her. Quake sighed again, ducking under his blow and slamming her fist into his chin. "Idiot." Ronald was sent flying back, landing on his back as his sword got stuck in the ground not too far off from his position. Quake spoke again. "Come on man, lemme get you to the Infirmary."

Ronald turned around on to his stomach as he slowly got up, nearly collapsing several times as he soon got up, his back to her at this. "... Tell me.... Does the name Ronald Klutz ring a bell?" Quake thought. "Hmmmm....Nope." "Of course you wouldn't remember me... That little boy who's home was attacked and burned down by demons. And when it came time for them to deal with me, you showed up.... And I remember what you did." He turned around and grabbed hold of the sword, pulling it out as he grabbed it with both hands. ".... Now I will kill you, and prove my worth to Angel D'Brightaine." Quake looked at Ronald, and dropped her hands. "You........" Quake looked down. "If I had arrived there sooner, I would've been able to save your Family...." Quake looked straight at Ronald, and glared. "You remember I saved you, so now you're here to kill me? By all means, try it." "SHUT UP! I know what you did! You got down in front of me when it was all over and gave me an apple... A DAMN APPLE OF PITY!" He pointed his sword at her. ".... THEN YOU HUGGED ME.... Kissed my forehead, and told me to forget about it! FORGET IT EVER HAPPENED! MY FRIENDS! MY FAMILY! BUT I DON'T NEED THEM! ANGEL SAYS I DON'T, SO IT MUST BE TRUE!" But at this, a wound opened up and blood splattered from his right shoulder, his arms lowering suddenly as the sword's tip hit the ground, unmoving as Ronald glared down at it.

Quake sighed. "Poor, deluded fool. You haven't chan- Whoa, you alright!?" Quake took a step towards Ronald, eyes filled with worry. "And it wasn't an Apple of Pity, kid. It was an apple of hope. Hope that you could get through all of that fine, and you have.... Aside from becoming Angel's puppet." "I DON'T NEED THIS SWORD!" He grabbed it with his left hand and threw it to the side, hearing it stab into a wall as he raised his gauntet. "AS LONG AS I HAVE THIS, IT DOESN'T MATTER! WHAT DO I CARE IF IT'LL SOON START DRAINING MY LIFE FORCE! NONE OF IT MATTERS!" He charged forward at her at this. "THIS GAUNTLET WILL BE YOUR DEATH ANY WAY!" Quake's eyes opened, and as Ronald neared her she grabbed him by the collar and pulled him close to her. "Calm down, I don't have any apples on me, Kid." Ronald gritted his teeth as he went to punch her with the gauntlet. "DON'T TOUCH ME! STOP IT! GET OFF! I DON'T NEED THIS!!! I DON'T NEED YOU!!!!" Quake remained still as Ronald hit her with the gauntlet, and she kissed him on the forehead. "It's alright, calm down Kid..." Ronald felt his eyes widen at this and his cheeks flushed. But then he gritted his teeth again. "S-stop.... Stop it... I -- I..." He gritted his teeth as he grabbed her wrists and raised them up forcibly. Then he placed his gauntlet in between them. "..... Break it now or I'll hit you again with it." Quake spoke. "What'll happen to you?"

"... It'll break the connection between me and the gauntlet. Once you break it... The WDL will lose all readings on my pulse and stuff. Therefore, they'll think I'm dead." Quake waited for a moment before crushing the Gauntlet, but not Ronald's hand or arm. "There." Ronald coughed violently at this, leaning on Quake's body as he felt himself grow weak at this. "Sir, we've just gotten a new report on Ronald Klutz's status." One WDL soldier stated. Angel looked over to the man and glared. "What of him?" "Well, it seems he has encountered Quake along the way, and, well... She just killed him, it seems." Angel was silent. "....Damn....He wasn't bad...." Angel quickly laughed, and strode away. Quake smirked. "So, how about we go grab you an Apple, eh Kid?" Quake hefted Ronald over her shoulder, and proceeded to the Infirmary. Ronald grabbed her hand as she went to pick him up. "... You forgot something." Quake eyed him. "What's that?" Ronald smiled as he looked up at her. Then he quickly leaned in and pressed his own lips against hers. Quake's eyes widened, but she didn't pull out of the kiss. After they had finished, Quake smirked teasingly. "Looks like I was wrong about you being a bad kisser after all~" Ronald smiled and leaned his head on her shoulder. "... I'd like some apples now." Quake simply grinned, and took Ronald to the Infirmary.

~ Rin VS Timothy Night! ~

Timothy walked silently into the control room as his eyes wondered around to look at it. "... What amazing technology." He spoke as he took out the disk. "... But unfortunately, it has to go." With that, he rose the disk and was about to put it into the computer for the control room. A loud cough could be heard from behind Timothy, and there stood Rin in full combat gear. "Luckily I was about to go practice. Who the heck are you?" Timothy stopped as he rose the disk up and crushed it in his hand. "... Timothy Night. You?" Rin smirked. "Leaving no evidence, eh? Call me Rin, leader of the Demon Division of the Renegades. Mind telling me why you're here?" Timothy turned around to face her. "... Simple. To eliminate my target." "And your target is...?" Rin smiled. "You, miss Rin." "Figures. So no talking? I'm usually against fighting, but..." Rin vanished, appearing behind Timothy and sending a boot into his face before grabbing him and throwing him through the door. In midair, Rin noticed his body preparing itself as he landed his feet gracefully against the wall as he dropped down and landed on all fours, getting up as he brushed his face off. "... Hmph. I heard you were always the weakest of the leaders. Now I see why." Rin rose a brow. "Erm, why?" "You are pathetically weak in comparison to Michael and Deon... Tell me, who replaced Deon?" Rin glared. "An Oni named Quake. Why's that?"

Timothy pressed a few buttons on his wrist. "Good. I just sent that information to Angel. Now I have to wait for Ronald Klutz to confirm he has killed her and I will proceed with you." Rin growled. "You're going after all the Leaders? What the heck are you doing?" "Right now, a demon named Bellfoar is fighting your friends with several others. They believed that if they distracted them, they could sneak into your base and plant some bombs in here. However, we have prevented that, in our own hopes of assassinating the Renegade's leaders so that it will fall and we will gain control over every soldier in here. Quite funny, really... How last night, Angel came up with the brilliant idea to evacuate all the towns and have everyone reside within the WDL grounds." Rin smirked. "So you wanna play with the kitty-cat eh? And you're going after the 'weakest'. Says SO much about you~" Rin smirked playfully and waggled her finger at Timothy. "Actually, I am the middle strongest. Ronald is the weakest, and Sir Melvin is the strongest... Oh, right, you know about him, don't you? I can tell by the look on your face, that you seem a little... Scared, in fact. That a Knight and two lower class WDL soldiers were sent in, under the illusion we were really investigating the Bellfoar case." Rin sighed. "Whatever, let's fight already. I usually avoid conflict but I can tell you're itching to brawl, right? And it's not like I have a choice."

"Ronald is still handling Quake, so... Not yet. But in the mean time, I can tell you how we plan to kill Kallos~" Rin smiled. "Oooh, do tell~ Maybe we'll use it when I beat your ass to the floor?" "..." Timothy started to chuckle. "... Actually.... We already have the meat shields pilled up." Rin's eyes widened. "W-What!? No way, Angel's going to-" Rin went silent, her claws extending fully as she glared straight at Timothy. "You're going down." Timothy continued to chuckle. "Not exactly... It was always Kallos' intention to drive the people away into the WDL grounds, so that he could mass slaughter them. So we're going to give him what he wants... But in the process, while he's killing them, we'll be killing them. And then who will be able to say they knew of our scheme? Every witness who could testify will be dead in the chaos!" "Except me, dumbass." "Who is going to believe you? You are the Renegades, a group of demons and humans who want to bring balance. The world will see this as a thank you to us, for avenging all those poor people..." At this, the device on Timothy's hand beeped as he looked at it. ".... Damn it. Ronald Klutz is dead?!" Timothy smashed the device on his hand and threw it aside, looking at her. "... I didn't expect Quake to be so cold hearted." Rin remained still. "Neither did I, actually.... Well, since the WDL is killing innocents, why can't we?" Rin laughed. "You're not really innocents, are you?"

"You don't know Ronald." Timothy sighed. "But any who, Angel has been performing illegal experiments as of late, and well... Let's just say I'm one of them." Rin rose a brow. "Oh, with Demon Blood I assume?" Timothy smirked. "Something of the sort... Let's just say.... ....I was bitten." "I hate Dogs." At this, Timothy's eyes glowed yellow as he growled and yelled out, his clothes tearing off as his form started to change, fur growing all over his body as he slammed down on all fours. "I hate Wolves, too." ... Then, when it was over, Timothy rose up in his Werewolf form as he growled at her. "I REALLY hate Werewolves." Timothy let out a howl at this as he got down on all fours and leaped at her. Rin barely managed to leap out of the way before Timothy landed where she was. Rin turned and spoke. "Bunch of Hypocrites!" Timothy quickly turned and ran at her, swinging his claws at her as he did. Rin ducked, dodging all of the claw swipes and sending in some of her own at Timothy. Timothy took them as he growled at her, acting as if they didn't even effect them. Then he swung a punch at her. Rin was hit by said punch and flew through the door, landing on her feet and wiping the blood off of her lip. "Ass."

Timothy jumped and landed in front of her as she was wiping the blood off, swinging his claws rapidly at her. Rin ducked and rolled away from Timothy, barely avoiding his attacks at this point. Timothy got on all fours and charged in at her, aiming to ram his head into her. Rin placed a hand on Timothy's head and used it to vault over him, realizing the close combat wasn't the best idea. "I'm still faster than him, so maybe if I.... Got it!" Rin bolted off down a nearby hallway. Timothy watched her run as he let out what sounded like a bark before running after her on all fours. Rin smirked, turning another corner and then sliding into a sideroom, leaving the door open behind her. Timothy rushed in after her, knocking the door down when he entered. As Timothy entered the room, he would find it empty aside from Rin standing there with a very peculiar gun in hand. "Bring it, drool-face." Timothy growled as he got on all fours and began to circle her at this. Rin smirked, twirling the gun in her hand and keeping Timothy in sight and at a distance. Timothy then began to have his eyes glow brighter yellow as he continued circling her, increasing his speed slowly as he did. Rin smirked, watching Timothy. Then Timothy let out a loud roar at this, the soundwaves would of entered into Rin's ears and completely throw off her senses temporarily. Rin blocked her ears, shaking her head before looking for Timothy again. Timothy landed behind her by this time as he slashed at her back.

Rin spun around just in time to fire a round at Timothy. The claw got her across her chest but her bullet slammed into his face, exploding and sending liquid silver all over the Werewolf. Timothy yelled out as Timothy stumbled back and then collapsed down on to the ground, seemingly unmoving... Rin growled, firing a few more rounds at him. "Stay down, dog." Each bullet was destroyed upon contact with something as Timothy slammed a hand on the ground and slowly rose up, revealing a barrier around his form before it faded away and he leaped at her, landing in front of her as when she went to shoot him, he bit down into the gun and ripped it out of her hand. Then he would spit it on the ground as he stepped down on it, looking at her as he leaped up and aimed to tackle her. Rin leaped away, extending her claws fully and growling. "I said stay down!" Timothy grinned at this. "Fuck you little bitch." "I bet you'd love to, but I've already got my eye on someone. And you're DEFINITELY not my type." "You smell like shit. Why would I want YOU?" "Iunno, why did you threaten to fuck me?~" "Because by that, I mean I'm going to tear you limb from limb with my bare teeth..." "So you're gonna eat me, are you?~" Rin snickered. If Deon could do it, so could she. Timothy inhaled at this as he let out another loud roar, sending out sound waves at her ears again. This time, Rin was prepared. She rolled backwards, away from Timothy and covered her ears as she did so.

Timothy this time leaped to one of the objects in the room as he grabbed it and threw it at her. Rin smirked as she sliced the object in half with her claws, and stood there with a grin on her face. "That it?" Timothy threw three more objects at her at this. Rin slashed them all apart. After she slashed the third one apart, Timothy charged in and aimed to ram her into a wall to finally knock her out. Rin didn't see this coming at all, but she quickly pulled out her rifle and smashed it across Timothy's face. "Oh-snaaaap!~" Timothy took the hit, but the rifle cracked upon contact as Timothy growled at her, now pissed off. And just as quickly as his rage came, he yelled out right in her face, sending the sound waves right there and then. Rin headbutted him. Timothy roared out as he shook his head. Then glared at her as his eyes turned red, before sending a quicker punch then before at her head. Rin was sent flying as the punch hit her and sent her into the wall. She remained there, dazed. "Awaaaaa?" Timothy then charged in and stopped in front of her, punching her down into the ground. "G-Agh!" Timothy then elbowed down into her face. Rin felt her cheek break as his elbow smashed into her. "Stupid little fucker. How dare you hurt me. How dare you use silver against me. I'll break you. Then I'll rip you to shreds. When someone finds your body, they won't know it's you, so you will be forgotten, left behind... I will kill everyone close to you! And then... I'll kill the man you love as I taunt him about how I killed you!"

"......" "Quake will scream as I do things to her... Oh you don't want to know how I handle my meals I like the taste of~" He smirked and punched down into her again. "... I will DESTROY the Renegade. And it will all have started thanks to you." Rin remained silent, letting Timothy beat into her. "Now.... To end this." He said as he got his claws to they're fullest, then went to stab into her chest. "It will be nice... WHEN YOUR MAN TELLS YOU HOW I WON!!!!!!!!" Boom! Timothy was sent flying into and through a nearby wall, then through a few more before a tail grabbed him and slammed him into the roof, then the floor. Timothy screamed out at this and then went to look at the one who had attacked him. Suddenly, from the dust came another tail that had a claw on it, cutting Timothy across the chest and letting the other tail grab him and slam him into the floor repeatedly. "AUGGHH!!!" Was all Timothy could say. "Show yourself, demon! Let me see you in your true form!" A voice, laden with hatred and danger, reached out to Timothy. "You'll only deserve to see me when you burn in hell, dog." "I don't care! Show yourself to me now!" Suddenly, a group of tails, around 18 more joined the two already facing Timothy. "Then I guess you shall die. You should start running, Dog." With that, the tails all sped at Timothy. Timothy rose up to his feet at this as he glared at her. "Repel." With that, the barrier appeared again. "Repel is one of my abilities... It has the power to destroy anything it touches. Your mere tails cannot possibly touch this without --"

One of the tails slammed against the barrier, slowly pushing through it as the tension in the room increased. "Tension BREAK!" Suddenly, the room exploded, everything inorganic exploded, including Timothy's barrier. Timothy felt his eyes widen as he moved to the side, the tail slicing his side as he stopped himself. "Man... What a pain in the ass. Well? Reveal yourself to me, demon!" Another tendril slammed into Timothy, going straight through him and then throwing him away. "Run, Dog." Timothy screamed out as he stumbled, catching himself. "REVEAL YOURSELF FIRST!! THEN I WILL RUN!" Suddenly, the doors to the room were grasped by claws and torn away, and a massive demon pulled itself inside. "Peek-a-boo!" "..... Well that's one big purple cat bitch. Oh right, running time. Doing that now." With that, Timothy returned to his human form as he put on a mask over his face before using a device similar to the one Ronald used before. He then went to jump into it, but was knocked way as it was destroyed. "... Shit." He said, before actually running away. The demon pulled itself forward and through the room as it's tails snaked after Timothy, not slowly, but with horrifying speed. It would take all he had just to avoid them.

Timothy ran outside as he looked around at this. "DAMN IT, where is THE CHOPPER?!?!" At this time, a chopper came down at this as a man looked out at this. "GET TO THE CHOPPER!" "MOVE!" He shouted, pushing the man out as he got into the chopper and it flew away quickly at this, boosting itself so as to avoid Rin. Luckily, Timothy was able to take pictures of Rin's form. Suddenly, a tail lashed out and grasped the Helicopter's rudder, pulling it down towards the ground. On the ground stood Rin in her normal form, but with innumerable massive tails all aimed straight at the Helicopter. "Mother fucker." Timothy said and jumped out. He transformed back into his werewolf form and as he lands, he helps break his fall with his increased agility and tougher body structure. He then raced away from the scene. Before Timothy could react, Rin was beside him, propelling herself at the same speed as him using her tails. Her eyes were a rusty crimson, and her wounds seemed to glow before healing and vanishing. Suddenly a tail flicked out and got Timothy in the stomach, flinging him down into a small ravine. Timothy screamed out as he spun around a little, growling as he began to climb out of the ravine. "Hello, Angel? Yeah, I'm coming. Just have men escort me to your room when I arrive. Why? I found the target... She's on her period. Yeah, it sucks, it does smell, I know. Yeah I'll inform you when I get back. Tim out~"

Another tail slammed into Timothy, hurling him into the air and then grabbing him and smashing him through a boulder before dragging him across the ground to lay near Rin's feet. "So, you're going to be escorted to Angel's room, hmm? I don't think so". With the, a tail reached out and caressed Timothy's face, before starting to choke him. "5 seconds headstart, then we play hide and seek~" Timothy choked at this. "... I think you're forgetting something." Rin growled, and asked. "What?" "My escort just arrived." And true to his word, a figure appeared at this, kicking Timothy out of Rin's grip as the figure vanished and appeared to catch Timothy, landing as Rin would recognize him... Rin growled, the tail moving from Timothy's neck to him arm and tugging, tearing it off with a sickening crunch and the sound of tearing flesh. "That's for pissing me off, Dog." Suddenly, the tails vanished, and Rin stood there, looking normal as ever. "Hey, Sir", she acknowledged the 7th Exorcist with a bow. Timothy howled out as he struggled, meanwhile, the Samurai looking Exorcist stared at her with no emotion in his eyes. "Hmm... Rin of the Renegades, correct?" Rin simply mocked his glare, and spoke. "Yes." The Exorcist had a symbol on his right hand glow as suddenly, a holy barrier surrounded Rin. "Do not follow us... Or I will be back for you." With that, the 7th Exorcist vanished and so did the holy barrier after a few minutes. Rin turned away, a tail suddenly growing from her. "Bunch of pricks!" With that, she returned to the Renegades Base.

~ Rin VS Timothy Night: Aftermath! ~

The 7th Exorcist set Timothy down as he looked towards Angel. "He will not be able to attend the battle, I'm afraid... The process of the mechanical arm replacement to fit for a battle is... Tedious, at best." Angel scoffed. "I should've warned you about her, if you hadn't awakened her Demon Form you would've been FINE!" Angel glared at Timothy. "You also revealed to her that we've been experimenting on our soldiers...." Suddenly, Angel pulled out Excalibur and placed it to Timothy's neck, before putting it away soon after. "Fools." "I have a suggestion..." The 7th Exorcist spoke. Angel glared at the man. "What?" The 7th Exorcist returned the glare. It was like this for a moment, as he was still in his Knight Mode... ".... Right. One of the brothers is currently in America right now, studying the demons there. You can send him there today, if you so wished. The higher brothers are... Most strict, as you know well from Adam's training of others." Angel nodded. "Hmm....." "But for now, I must go... I must return to Tokyo to investigate on this... Omega..." The 7th Exorcist began to walk out of the room. "... Oh.... And one more thing." Angel turned to him. "Hm?" The 7th Exorcist stopped briefly. "If you lose Excalibur, don't bother reporting back to Adam about the battle." Angel growled. "I won't." The 7th Exorcist nodded before walking out of the room. Angel picked up the phone and spoke. "Yes, I need a transport for a man to America. Thank you."

~ Shinji VS Melvin! ~

Melvin walked down the hall as he headed for the infirmary. "Michael A. Malachim.." He spoke quietly as he stopped before the infirmary. "... Time to die." Suddenly, the door opened and a man walked out, holding some chicken in a bucket, and eating away at it happily. He wasn't looking where he was going and so he bumped into Melvin. Melvin glared at him. "Who in the hell are you?" The man looked up, and instead of answering he offered Melvin the bucket. "Chicken?" Melvin knocked the bucket out of his hand. The man looked at the bucket, and sighed. "What was that for?" "I am Sir Melvin of the WDL... You will move aside so I can see Michael A. Malachim at once!" The man grinned widely. "Nice to meet you Melvin, my name's Shinjei Kintaro. Mikey ain't takin' visitors anymore, sadly." "That's too bad..." With that, Melvin hit Shinjei across the face. Shinjei fell to the floor, right next to his chicken, his backpack hit the floor first and Shinjei sighed. "Always the face, man." Shinjei looked up at Melvin and glared. "Douchebag." Melvin walked towards the door Shinjei came out of. Shinjei grabbed Melvin's foot in an attempt to stop him. Melvin stopped and went to kick Shinjei away. Shinjei rolled a bit before coming to a stop right next to his backpack as Melvin kicked him. "Prick!" "I am done playing games. I will kill you next time you try." Shinjei just lay there.

While Melvin's back was turned, Shinjei was fumbling with his backpack, pulling something out of it and then strapping it on. Melvin sighed and turned around at this. "What now?" That's when a gigantic metal fist went to grab him by the face. Melvin quickly drew his sword out and made a cut in the palm of the metal fist. "... What trickery is this?" "Trickery, oh no? Just the intelligence of a Kappa condensed into a Backpack~" Shin's tone was mocking as he picked up his bucket of chicken, which he had luckily forgotten to re-open when offering to Melvin. "I'll beat you by the time I finish the Chicken, alright?" "... You have a demon in that backpack?" "....No, dumbass. What I DO have though, is a Particle Cannon capable of leveling mountains in seconds, a laser-wire shooter, an electro-magnetic Blade and another bucket of chicken, among other things." ".... You what?" Shin sighed. "Fight me and find out, if you dare~" Melvin pulled out a gauntlet at this and put it on. "I have all this and you pull out a Gauntlet? Laaaame." Melvin clutched his hand as a demonic purple aura appeared around it. "Still laaaaaame." "Come at me then..." "What's the point if I can just stand here and stall you anyway?" Melvin turned around and went to punch the door at this. Shinjei whacked at him in the face with the metal hand.

Melvin blocked it with his gauntlet, the gauntlet easily holding it's own against the metal hand. Suddenly, another metal hand shot out and hit Melvin in the stomach. Melvin leaped up at this, slicing it with his sword as he then punched it with is gauntlet - it began to have multiple purple cracks appear on it as Melvin landed and watched the magic show begin - multiple mechanical parts were blown off the metal arm in rapid succession. Shinjei pulled out a gun and fired at Melvin. Melvin deflected it with his gauntlet. "Yo Beel? Game-time!" Suddenly, before Melvin could react, Beelzebub appear and slammed into his shoulder in her spear form. Melvin looked at her as he pulled her out of his armor and threw her towards the door. "You are only experiencing the warm up... Soon this gauntlet will have enough magic to destroy machines with a single touch." Beelzebub reformed into her female form, hefting a Machine Gun that looked oddly like a Browning. "What now, Shin?" Shin sighed. "Time to bring out the big guns, I guess." From the backpack popped up a small box, attached to a cord. "I will not allow you to use any of those." With that, Melvin held out his hand, and the Gauntlet started to send several magic blasts at them. Beelzebub turned into her spear form and Shin deflected or destroyed every magical blast. "Doone~" Suddenly, the box expanded and turned into a massive cannon that pulsed with magical energy. "Hide and Seek, Beel?" With that, Beelzebub shifted to her human form and started firing at Melvin.

Melvin furrowed his brows as his armor started to shine as the bullets hit it. If she aimed for skin, he simply knocked it away. "I will turn in this demon, and then kill you!" Shinjei simply grinned and fire his particle cannon straight into Melvin. The sphere would hammer straight into him, burning away his armor for a few seconds before exploding and sending him flying. Melvin hit a wall as he shook it off and turned a few knobs on the gauntlet. "Very well... Max bonding." With that, his veins on his arm would turn purple as his arm started to buldge - it also started to turn demonic and pulsate. "Pffft, Demon-killing Organisation... Uses Demon Power.... Hypocriiiites!" Melvin held out his hand as he sent more powerful magical shots at them. Shin then sent out a shot from his Particle Cannon, catching Melvin's shots and flying towards him and exploding. Melvin moved out of the way at this - his speed increasing as he sent a large magical shot at them. Shin fired repeated shots at Melvin. Melvin held out his hand as the purple aura came back - now taking the hits of each shot as it started to absorb the magic. Each time his arm only got bigger and bigger, looking more powerful with each shot it absorbed. Then Beelzebub shot him with her non-magical rounds. Melvin moved out of the way of those - his speed increased enough to match that of a Lightning Demon's. "I have absorbed enough magic to destroy that machine... It is futile to resist..."

Shin sighed. "Yeaaaaah, no." With that, a spray of Holy Water rained down on Melvin. Melvin rose a brow as he was hit, blinking as he looked around. "Fire Alarm went off, I activated it on you. Derp, sorry." "I don't see how I'm in trouble." "Your arm should start stinging soon enough, I think." Melvin rose his hand up, sending a magic blast into the roof above them - destroying the sprinklers. "You were saying?" Before Melvin could react, a metal fist slammed into his jaw. Melvin was sent back into a wall behind him. "Shazam mofo!" Melvin stood up, now his arm bodybulider sized. Shin smirked, a plan forming itself in his head, before he shot into Melvin repeatedly. Melvin furrowed his brows, absorbing the magic like before. Shinjei kept shooting into him, watching Melvin's arm get bigger and bigger. ".... Uh-oh, I should of seen this ahead of time." Shinjei charged up a massive shot, aimed straight at Melvin's arm, and fired. With that shot absorbed, his arm suddenly exploded, sending out powerful magic all over the hall. Shinjei spun around, away from the explosion and Beelzebub vanished. When it was over, Shin turned around and looked at Melvin. "Ouchie." Melvin stood there, now looking very close to a statue... His arm obviously gone along with the gauntlet. It was highly unlikely he was still alive after this. Shin just stared at the man, eyeing him suspiciously. Then cracks appeared all over Melvin's statue... Before it all shattered into pieces and dust.

Raphael stood in the center of a room in the WDL basement, watching people in several tanks as he furrowed his brows. "Damnation indeed... Those gauntlets containing the Chimera Formula aren't doing as expected. Only Sir Melvin has used it to it's full power, and he has been reported missing... Damn those Renegades to the pits of hell!" He slammed his hands on the table in front of him as he looked up and rose his brows, vital signs being reported. "Oh damn it, not now... Tell Angel it's Samuels' original again. His vital signs are starting to change... Ever since Samuel died, this has been happening. I'm going to have to talk to Angel when he gets here with that scum."

Angel had been busy fretting over the whole Kallos Business before going back to the Chimera Testing Facility located under his Academy. He stepped inside and looked around, finding Raphael in the center. "Report?".

"Sir, it's Samuels' original again. His vital signs are acting up again... I don't think we will be able to restrain him this time."

Angel sighed. "Well then we shall simply take him under our control and give him a dose of the Chimera Formula as well. Simple really. We shall also make sure he is on our side, the same way we manipulated Deon". Angel looked over the room, and grinned. "Such a good Doctor".

"Sir... You do know he is half demon, right? Think of the side effects... Samuel was literally created to host the Chimera Formula from the reports... What if something goes wrong?"

Angel looked at Raphael. "No matter, he will be under our control..... Awaken him, the sedatives should keep him calm enough".

Raphael sighed out. "You heard the boss! Wake the poor boy up! And... Make sure he believes he is still Samuel D'Brightaine. We can't have him remembering he is Devin Namach!"

Angel grinned as the numerous servants rushed to do his bidding, and he grinned. "This is going well".

Raphael nodded. "... While this is occurring, I will send out the others to scout the area for Kallos or any of his men. I will return when you need me..." With that, Raphael spread out his angel wings and flew out, wasting no time with each beat of his wings, sending angelic feathers falling behind him. Angel looked at the angel for only a moment, then turned back to the men pulling Devin out of the tube. "How is he?".

Devin winced as he clutched his head, "He has a splitting headache, thanks for asking."

Angel looked at the man and spoke again. "Tell me your name".

Squinting at the blur in front of him, he replied "As if you don't know already." In truth he was having trouble remembering much of anything, the feeling of his head splitting in half making it hard to concentrate.

Angel smirked. "Right, Samuel my brother! How are you aside from your headache?".

He winced again as his headache spiked in time with the words. "Well the headache seems to be the worst of it, but both my legs could be broken right now and I probably wouldn't notice." Slight exaggeration never hurt anyone.

Angel nodded and produced a vial from his pocket, grinning and throwing it to Samuel. "This should help, it's an... energy booster". Angel smirked and turned away before grabbing something off of the table. "It works best if you inject it straight into your bloodstream, so the neck should do fine".

Devin grabbed the small container from where it landed in his lap and was about to pull the stopper when Angel spoke. He grinned and replied "I was just gonna drink it, but ok." He felt around blindly for a moment and then said "Someone pass me a damn needle." Another blur moved in front of him and He felt the cool glass of the syringe in his palm, then He squinted in concentration as he filled the syringe from the vial, flicking it a few times so that he didn't die and then plunged it into the vein in his elbow. Devin sighed in relief as his sight cleared up and the pain from his headache receded. "Much better, i'll have to get the recipe for this off of you sometime."

Angel simply smirked. "It's not my recipe I'm afraid. A good Doctor stopped by and gave it to me. Now, how're you feeling after taking the dose?"

A man appeared beside Devin, examining him and dotting down things on a notepad. Devin opened his mouth to reply, then snapped it shut again as he took in his surroundings. "Nice digs, this your top-top-secret super-duper science lab?" He walked over and examined the giant glass tube he'd just been pulled out of, "You had me in one of these things? No wonder I had a headache, small spaces never did agree with me." He looked back at Angel "Oh, I feel pretty good now actually, like I've got some extra energy to run off, which I probably do depending on how long you had me in that mother-of-all-test-tubes"

Angel smirked. "Indeed this is, although this place doesn't exist". Angel smirked. "It's good to see you up and running again, Samuel". Angel nodded to a nearby Scientist, who tapped Devin on the shoulder. "Sir, we need to run some tests if you will allow us. Then we will show you back to your Quarters for some rest if you wish".

"Sure thing buddy, what kinda tests are we talking about?" he replied. The man simply handed Devin a piece of paper and motioned for him to follow. "Hmm, blood test, reflex test, MRI, this all seems pretty stan- wait, what's a 'Diolithic Extrapolating Radio-Pulse' Doc?"

"Derp!" replied the nameless minion.

Devin blinked a few times, not sure if he heard correctly "Did you just say Derp?"

"Indeed, my good man. Derp is one of the most important tests we are going to run on you."

Devin just sighed and palmed his face, "If you say so Doc."


==SOME TIME LATER==


Devin looked around curiously, standing at the mouth of a long dark hallway that might have been grand and impressive at one point but now looked dank and worn. "The fuck are we doing here?" he said to the person next to him.

Angel walked forward at this. "You will see... I am going to show you a great example of what we, the WDL, are capable of. If you will follow me... And do try not to listen to the screams you hear. They are demons calling out to you, trying to trick you and bind you to be a slave."

Devin eyed the numerous side doors warily, expecting a Demon gimp to suddenly burst out of one and try to drag him inside. "Riiiiight, so this is just the build up to some grand point you are trying to make that will fill me with faith and fanaticism?" He barely managed to contain his snort of amusement.

"You have been faithful, brother... If it weren't for your prayers, you would probably be dead right now."

Devin made a neutral 'Hmmm' sound in the back of his throat as he followed his brother through a door that looked in much better condition than the others in the hallway. "So what is so important to the WDL that you keep it in a place that looks like its seen less action than a dick-less hermit?"

Angel stopped before a door. "... Well, I believe this will answer everything. His name..." Angel rose a foot and kicked the door open. "... Is Deon Morris."

"Oh great, it's the Douche-bag again...". Deon looked up from the floor, his eyes glittering with amusement. "So, what 'torture' will it be today, eh? Oh, and nice to know how much you love me".

Devin looked between the two in obvious confusion, "I thought this guy was on our side? Or at least, not on theirs."

"He is a demon... A scum of the earth who must know his place." Angel then turned back to Deon at this. "I'd like to introduce you to my brother... Samuel D'Brightaine."

Deon blinked, before grinning. "Ohohohoho~ Nice to meet you, Samuel. IF that's your real name of course~". Deon smirked, and spoke to Angel. "Better than using a false identity, eh Angel?". Deon grinned at the mockery of Angel's name.

Devin frowned at the chained man, then at his brother. "This is why you dragged me here? So we could play twenty questions with this fuckmook?" His eyebrows rose as something occurred to him, "Or did you want me to kill him for you?"

Angel smirked at this. "Oh you can't kill him." He said, before suddenly grabbing a spear next to him and throwing it at Deon's chest. Deon glared at Angel as the Spear went straight through his heart, and he sighed. "The fuck, man?". Then he smirked. "So 'Samuel', how long have you been serving the WDL?"

Devins' eyes widened, "Long enough to know that a spear to the heart kills just about anything." He leaned down to examine the apparently mortal wound. "How are you doing that, wait - scratch that, where in the seven circles of Hell can i get me one of those?"

"Fortunately... He is the last of his damned kind. Don't get too close though... He likes to spit at people like a camel. It's the only thing intelligent enough he can be on par with."

Deon smirked. "Says the man who works for the Company I've evaded for over 1,000 years".

"And look at you now... Responsible for the death of your kind."

"Responsible in what way? For letting Humans go on a killing spree?".

Devin pulled the spear out of Deons' chest and examined the tip closely, "This spearhead is Seraphim Steel, the holiest of metals, why isn't your flesh burning?"

Deon simply smirked. "A Magician never reveals his secrets".

Devin smirked right back and started stabbing him in other places that would normally cause a severe case of death. "Then I shall just have to search you for the answers."

"Enough, Samuel... You cannot do anything to him. I have already taken out his heart, and, well... You can see it's only made him smell worse after I crushed the damn thing."

Deon grinned. "So you let them Brainwash you, eh Devin? Tell me, do you know who Hikari Scarlet is?"

Devin frowned at his brother, then at the bloody grinning fool on the floor and jabbed him in the neck with the spear one more time. "We ask the questions here Mr 'please-stab-me-again', not you." He turned back to his brother "Is there any particular reason we came here then or were you just trying to discourage me from making friends with people like him?"

"A little of both." Angel admitted, walking over to Devin. "Hold out your hand."

Deon snickered. "...Heh, 'Brother'....".

Devin held out his hand warily, keeping the spear ready to stab the asshole on the floor if he tried anything. Angel put down an empty syringe into his hand. Deon knew it all too well. It looked exactly like the syringe Samuel had used to inject himself before. "Take this... And plunge it into his heart. Draw out as much blood as you can, and when it is full... Stab it and inject it into your right arm. Preferably where you can see a vein."

"Pfft, Demon hating organization... Using demon Blood...". Deon smirked. "Hypocrites".

Devin smirked as he drew the blood, "All's fair in Love and War." He looked sideways at his brother as he rolled his sleeve up and then plunged the needle into his elbow, emptying the thick red liquid into it. At this, Devins' veins started to glow red as his arm started to shake violently, feeling like it was burning itself as an aura appeared around him, violently growing in power as his body was suddenly filled with an incredible amount of pain. He couldn't hear, his vision became blurry.

Angel watched Devin start to fall, grabbing the syringe and throwing it aside as he chuckled. "Perfect... As I hoped... The blood is making the Chimera Formula start to go berserk inside his body. Oh, I tried to think of how to make Deon Morris serve me... And then it hit me. Make him responsible for another death. How was it, watching your race die before your eyes? How was it, watching your master die? How was it... To watch Samuel die right in front of you? They all died... Because of you. And now... You have just poisoned Devin Namach, the REAL one."

Deon growled. "Angel, I swear. You're gonna pay for all of this... How did you even GET the Chimera Formula!?"

Angel smirked. "Why, you can't tell?"

"........No way....".

"It was a gift, after all... I only expanded the gift as it was intended to be used."

".....So he's actually serious this time... Fuck..."

"But enough about the Formula..." Angel turned to Devin and smirked. "... What a sweet face to make as he slowly begins to go closer to death's door... How lovely, don't you agree? You have seen people die so many times... And now you lay here, watching Devin suffer as his mind is slowly broken." Angel lazily glanced at his watch. "Only one minute left until his body explodes into a permanent mutation... Tick, tock, tick, tock. Time is running out."

"That's a good song, actually". Deon looked up at Angel and spoke. "Once I get free from these chains..."

"Fifty seconds...."

"...."

"Forty."

"Thirty seconds... Do you admit submission to me yet, Deon?"

"....No....".

"We'll see... Twenty seconds. You have that long to decide."

"..........I hate you so much....".

"Eighteen... Seventeen... Sixteen..."

"..............".

"Thirteen... Twelve..... Eleven..... Ten."

".............".

"Nine."

"Eight."

"Seven."

"Six."

"........."

"Five."

"...."

"Four."

".........."

"Three."

"........"

"Two."

".........."

"One...."

".....Fine.....".

"Fine what, Mr. Morris?"

"Fine.... I...." Deon visibly struggled with the words. "I....."

"You -what-?"

"The Executioner submits...".

"I never asked for the executioner.... I asked for Deon Morris to submit."

"Fine. I submit"

Angel smirked and pressed a button at this. "That's better.... Now he will regain control..."

Devin twitched and flopped around on the floor pathetically as his insides sorted themselves out. Angel chuckled. "... Only a fraction of the Chimera Formula remains in him. But that fraction can become bigger if I injected more... But that won't happen as long as you do what I say, Morris..."

Devin groaned pitifully as he blearily opened his eyes and tried to take in his surroundings. Angel turned towards Devin at this. "Rise... Devin Namach. You have done well." Devin struggled into a sitting position propped up against the wall, he took in the bloody and chained form across from him and the pompous asshole in the doorway, then looked down at the syringe and spear lying on the floor.

"Fuck me, that must have been one hell of a party."

Deon looked over at Devin. "Back to Devin now, eh?".

"No party, Devin... I imagine you remember Arthur, the man who recruited you into the WDL?"

Devin squinted at Deon, "Hey, I know you! Pinky right? I didn't recognize you without a couple of guys beating the crap out of you." He turned to look at Angel, "Yeah, I remember Captain Self-Righteous and his merry band of sycophants." He turned an unnatural pale as the blood drained from his face. "I also remember a blonde psycho-bitch playing head games with me in a limo." He frowned at the floor, "That actually happened didn't it?"

Deon laughed. "Oh man, is Pinky the best you can come up with? That's not even my real name!". Deon snickered.

Devin shrugged carelessly, wincing when his muscles protested. "I heard the stuck up biker-chick call you it and it just seemed appropriate." He glanced at Angel, "So, what the fuck guys? Who volunteered me to play hamster for your little white-coats?"

"It was Arthur's last test for you... To see if you were worthy of becoming a true member of the WDL. A true exorcist. Arthur is gone now, and I lead in his place. He has a reward waiting for you, all I ask..." He paused dramatically. "...is that you transform."

Devin nodded thoughtfully, "Is that all?" He asked nonchalantly. "Why didn't you ask earlier? Here let me just-" he struggled to his feet "-prepare myself." He reached deep into his jacket pockets and then pulled both hands out with his middle fingers raised. "Oh look, it seems you don't have the required skill points to make me transform."

Deon laughed at this, and spoke. "Oh man, I like this guy!".

Angel frowned. "So you would rather let a powerful weapon go to me then obtain it yourself?"

Deon looked at Angel. "...Weapon?".

Devin kicked Deon in the leg with what little force he could muster, "That's for fucking me up with your blood." He turned back to Angel, "Trust me, if I knew how to become a bad-ass Hellspawn there would be a lot more dead people in this room."

"Do it anyway. Or the weapon Arthur wanted you to have will be long gone."

Deon smirked. "Hey, I ain't the dickhead who took it without reading the warning labels! In other words; You done goofed!"

Devin ignored Deons' taunts and focused on the most important things, getting his hands on whatever Arthur 'I'm-the-strongest-man-in-the-world-except-i'm-dead-now' wanted to give him, and how the hell he was going to get away from this crazy motherfucker. "What sort of weapon are we talking about?

"Well... Imagine something like a sword. But that's all I'll tell you. Transform - now."

Devin glared at the self-important shit-stain in front of him. Who the hell did he think he was to order him about, the last guy who tried that got a knife between his ribs. 'Enough of this dicking around, I'm gonna rip his head off and shit down his throat.' As he though this Devin's body twisted and rippled, his muscles and bones shifting and growing into a demonic parody of an exoskeleton. With a thought Devin willed himself across the space between them, reappearing with an angry hiss. His burning yellow eyes conveyed a very clear message to the human as he raised his clawed hand to strike. Angel drew out Excalibur in a blur and pierced it's tip into Devins' chest. Pulling it out just as quick, the form Devin was in shattered and the pieces were absorbed back into his body, all the while Angel lazily put Excalibur back into it's sheath.

Devin screamed bloody rage as he fell to his knees, the shock of transforming and then shattering being too much for his already weakened form. He glared defiantly at Angel, "That's the last time you stick me with something dick-wad, now give me what is mine."

Angel smirked. "I am sort of impressed. You were able to take control... But, do you feel, better now? Almost... Reborn, in a way?" True to his word, Devin was slowly feeling better... And with it, he felt power. Power he had never had before. His body felt lighter, he felt like he could jump higher then ever before.

"I don't know how strong you have become, but, as far as I understand... When a demon takes control over his demon form, he gains some sort of... Power up, if you will. Now, I do believe I owe you... A reward. So, why not give you two?" With that, Angel snapped his fingers and the door they entered in opened with four figures walking in, holding two wrapped objects...

Devin rose to his feet slowly, not quite trusting anything at the moment, having gone from excruciating pain to blissful numbness and back again so many times today that he had lost count. He walked over to the four new figures and motioned to what they were carrying. "Come on then, show me what you've got."

One of the figures hissed from behind it's helmet at him as it and its partner slowly placed the larger object down first. "You will recognize this object as a sword... Open it." The two figures hissed again, and unwrapped the bindings to reveal a familiar sword laying there.

Deon watched the entire scene unfold, and sighed. "Great...."

"I believe you will sort of know this Sword." Angel glanced towards Deon at this. "After all.... The phoenix over there use to wield it, before I took it from his sheath."

The two other figures came forward and placed the other object down, throwing the bindings off to reveal two pistols that were smoking. Upon the bindings being released off of them, they gave a demonic growl as a sinister aura came off of them.

"Constructed, just for you... The newest demon weapon we've made..."

Devin reached in and picked up a pistol in each hand, hefting them slightly to get a feel for their weight, before settling them on his hips where they stayed of their own accord. Then he went over to the other weapon, the legendary Mokou, picked it up and swished it around a few times, before smirking at Deon and slapping it onto his back, where it stayed as if sheathed. "I'll take good care of this for you, until you find you have need of it again." Then he remembered the spear still lying on the floor and snapped his fingers, causing it to fly towards his hand where he caught it in mid air and then slung it over his other shoulder, point down and stuck fast. "Well, it's been a pleasure gents. We should do this again sometime, how about never?"

Angel smirked. "Oh no, you seem to be mistaken. By accepting those weapons, you have just promised to fight tomorrow... And if you don't show up, well... It's not going to look good for the Namach family."

Devin burst out laughing at the piss-poor attempt at a threat. "Oh you poor misinformed bastard. What makes you think I care what happens to the 'Namach Family'?" He wiped a fake tear of mirth from his eye. "They can burn in Hell for all I care, I washed my hands of them a long time ago."

Angel frowned at this. "... So you would rather die then fight for me?"

"At this rate it looks to me like I'm going to end up dead one way or another, I've almost died twice and the day's not even over yet. What exactly do you expect me to fight anyway? It's not like I know how to use any of the stuff you just gave me."

"How about your former friend... Ashley Clade?"

"The whacked out biker-chick? That bitch has more issues than playboy magazine, why would I fight her?"

"What would you want in return for fighting for me? Name it, and I can give it to you... Perhaps I'll even let you have the dumb girl as a token of my gratitude."

Devin frowned thoughtfully for a moment before speaking, "Now I know you've got it in for me. Not only do you want me to stick my neck out for you again, but the incentive you offer is a crazy-woman who's more likely to slit my throat while I sleep than give me the time of day." He laughed humorlessly. "You cannot give me what I want, but if the choices are fight or die, I'll fight and take what I can get." He paused. "I had a really nice knife once, it was as long as my forearm and shiny like a mirror." He sighed "It's probably in some rich bastards display case by now." He shook himself out of his memories. "Anyway, short blades are the only thing I've worked with before so if you can get me some new steel, that would be appreciated."

"You'll fight with the weapons you've got... Unless you want to spend the night here, sleeping under a bleeding carcass."

"I figured as much, you don't seem like the accommodating sort." He glanced at Deon slumped in the corner. "If I win I get the Clade girl and I get the pin-cushion over there. Those are my terms."

Deon looked up, and smirked. "So you're gonna torture me, eh?..... Damn...".

"Fine... But you will be watching over Deon tonight. If he escapes, I will find you." With that, Angel headed for the door, the four figures following.

Devin smirked at Angels' back as he left the room, then turned around and slid down the wall until he was sitting facing Deon. "Fuck a duck, that guy is nuts." He looked up at Deon and gave a half smile, "Do me a favor and don't escape tonight, If I die then you and the Clade girl are right fucked."

Deon returned the smile, and went to extend his hands before realizing his chains wouldn't let him. "Well, I'd better introduce myself properly, eh? And trust me, I'm fucked either way. I'll be sitting tight anyways." Deon smirked. "Right, Deon Morris, Leader of the Spec Ops Division of the Renegades. Nice to officially meet ya, Mr Namach." Deon smirked. "Or should I say, 'Little Bro'?"

Devin shrugged carelessly and leaned his head back against the wall. "Say what you like, it makes no difference to me." He fixed Deon with an intense stare. "They all hate you but most of them don't know why, they just hate because they are told they should." He snorted. "Zealots. What do these Renegades do that makes them different from the wankers around here?"

At this, a loud roar could be heard, along with some grumbling that passed by them. "Deon Morris... Gaea will crush you.... Gaea knows you are near.... Gaea will snuff you out like a bug." The giant form of Gaea walked by, restricted and dying in his current form, Gaea was dragged along towards a near by cell.

Deon smirked. "Well for starters we don't lock innocent people up or-.... Well shit, it's Him again..." He cupped his hands around his mouth. "YO GAEA! IN HERE!" He snickered. He could use this to his advantage.

Devin just raised an eyebrow in silent question.

Deon looked to Devin and grinned wider. "Let's just say he's an... old acquaintance of mine." Deon laughed a little, and continued. "The Renegades believe that it's not what you are that makes you, but how you act. We give everyone a fair go even if they're a Demon, and we only act if they're a proven threat to Humanity or other stuff. Think of us as the WDL, except less wanker-ish and less enthusiastic to lock people up. It's... hard to explain, actually..." Deon smirked. "It's been a while since we last saw each other. What've you been doing?"

Gaea looked over at them and growled. "Deon Morris! Gaea should destroy you where you lay, but Gaea has other means of doing so!"

Deon smirked. "Love you too, babe."

Devin smiled faintly at the description of the Renegades. "Sounds like you're a regular bunch of boy scouts. Me? That crazy fucker knocked me over the head the day that we got here. I've been chilling in a giant test tube since then and he only woke me up today. Which reminds me, what day is it?"

Gaea slammed his hand down at this, making the ground shake underneath them.

Devin growled deep in his throat, "Shut the fuck up you overgrown hunk of rock, we're trying to have a conversation in here!"

Deon blinked. "Well shit... I have no idea.... Hehehehhahahahahaha!". Deon laughed, and his eyes shone. "Oh man, you're not half bad, ya know?" He grinned slyly. "Funny thing is, I can leave at any time."

Gaea rumbled. "Should Gaea make another child, just so he can crush you for me? That would bring back honor to Gaea's family..."

Devin eyed the chains attached to his cell mate disbelievingly, "It sure doesn't look that way to me."

Deon grinned. "You think I want to make it obvious?". Suddenly, Deon's hand slipped through the chain and it fell, useless, to the floor beside him. Deon smirked. "Magic."

Devin's eyebrows rose towards his hairline, "Two things, Number one: how did you do that!? Number Two: what's with big and ugly out there, did you run over his dog or something?"

Deon smirked. "One, A Magician never reveals his secrets, and two...". Deon turned to Gaea. "Yo man, want a rematch? I'll beat you like a I beat those kids on CoD the other day! 1,300 to 1!"

Gaea let out a roar in response and made the floor shake again.

Deon let out a mocking fake roar and turned back to Devin. "Still confused? I'm a Half Demon, your older brother by blood. 1,300 years old and still one of the most dangerous things you'll ever fuck with. I'm also one of the last of my kind...."

"That seems rather contradictory. I poked you full of holes that would have killed anything else, wouldn't something with that sort of power be the dominant species on the planet?"

"Gaea hears you! Gaea can smell you! .... Even though Gaea doesn't have a nose."

Deon sighed. "Sadly no. We.... Well, let's just say that our genes are... pretty darn selective, just like those of a Nue. We can only breed with certain other Demons, or rarely humans, so yeah...". Deon laughed at Gaea's comment. "And apparently no brain, either!".

"I suppose that explains it, so why stay here and play captive then? If you could just waltz on out any time you like?"

Deon smirked. "As long as I'm here, the others will be alive".

"Gaea will enjoy watching Deon squirm, while his friends die by Angel's hands tomorrow!"

"What others do yo- PUT A ROCK IN IT YOU WALKING PILE OF RUBBLE!" He turned back to Deon. "What others? The Clade girl?"

"Any and all Demons in the entire Renegades. Clade, Ashley, by the way, Keilani, Sebastian, you. Probably everyone I know, actually.... Damn".

"If only the stupid phoenix knew!"

"....." Deon sighed, and summoning one of his guns, shot Gaea straight in the face. "Blockhead."

"But if I win tomorrow, then Angel has to give you to me but still hold up his end of your deal. Right?"

"AGGGHHH!! Deon uses cheap trick on Gaea! Gaea won't tell you Angel and Raphaels' plans now!"

"I hope so." Deon turned to Gaea. "Plans?"

Devin snorted, "Yeah right, Angel tells all his plans to you and I'm gonna propose on bended knee to the Clade girl tomorrow."

"Angel didn't tell Gaea! Gaea heard stupid angel boy and stupid human talking while Gaea was walking past! They thought Gaea was too old to hear them, too dead to care! But Gaea smarter then them! Gaea heard everything!"

Deon turned to Gaea. "Well waddaya know, you might've actually done something good or useful in your entire life. Feel good about it, man. Feel real good. Then tell me".

"Gaea won't tell scum like you! .... Unless.... You do Gaea a favor."

Deon sighed. "A favor?".

Devin huffed in amusement, "Here we go, let me guess, you want us to exact vengeance for you?" He paused for effect. "Or have you got an itch you can't quite reach?"

Deon laughed at Devin's joke. "Yep. Definitely my little Bro".

"Silence, scum! Deon hurt Gaea... So Deon help Gaea... Gaea knows of a special room, where demon weapons are forged. It is said this very room is where Arthur took Excalibur every day! Gaea needs the lava to survive... If Deon helps Gaea get to room... Gaea will tell you as he is preparing for his slumber over night."

Devin eyed Gaea skeptically. "How exactly will we get you to this room? You don't strike me as the stealthy type."

"All WDL soldiers and exorcists are preparing for tomorrow... The room will be unguarded..."

Deon smirked. 'Maaaybe I will."

"Gaea has all day... While you waste time sitting there... Gaea will remain sitting here until you have decided."

"Or I could just ask a certain someone for the plans whenever I like, you know. It's not as much of a one-way deal as you seemed to have thought it was, Gaea." Deon's eyes glinted mischievously, and his smiled seemed a little devilish.

"As you wish... But Gaea will enjoy watching Deon suffer as he was too late to save his brothers and sisters."

Devin snorted in morbid amusement. "You're surprisingly cruel for a talking lump of stone, you know that?"

Deon simply pulled out his other Revolver, and shot Gaea in the face again. "Silence, or I'll silence you permanently".

"AGGGHHH!!!"

There was silence for a moment before Devin finally asked the question that had been bursting to get out since he entered the room.

"So... do you come here often?"

Collectibles

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.


Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.

Mobs

Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!

Current Mobs

No mobs have been created yet.
