Introduction

Introduction: In year of 2025 new kind of technology has been invented called "Insitus Gear" ("Insitus" in latin means "virtual"). With its help people can enjoy virtual reality games on whole new level. Insitus Gear blocks all nerve impulses in ones body and creates new ones in person's brain. Like this people can feel the wind, taste the food, smell the flowers, hear the birds and see a whole new world without even moving out their home.
First it was released in Japan on May 15th. Just over one night in Japan alone million copies of Insitus Gear and Antiva Chronus Online was sold. On May 25th it was released in Europe, in June 4th in USA and around July 12th whole world was playing game called Antiva Chronus Online which is first Virtual Reality Mass Multiplayer Game (VRMMO). It has more then one billion players and more then half a million servers and ACO has become one of the most played games in history.
For a while all was good, but then a new problem appeared onto scene. People liked game so much that they forgot to eat, sleep or go to work. No matter what government did, people wouldn't stop playing ACO. That's why scientists came up with a solution. Give people chance to live in a virtual world. For many years all scientists of the world worked and searched for a way to do so, until finally in 2031 they found it. They managed to improve Insitus Gear to that point where it could create its own time in person’s brain. If player stays in game for a week, then in real life only few hours would have passed. With this people could enjoy the game and also manage to do all the fun things in real life.
Quickly people replaced old gear with new one and enjoyed game to its fullest. However even though time in game seems to have increased, some players still kept missing their work and school. Until one day all players were forcefully logged out except for those who hadn't logged out for 3 weeks (1 day in real life). All servers in ACO were united and all players sent back to the main square in Novus Town. More then 100,000 players were gathered in this square and all of them were back to level 1. Shortly afterwards they received message from Game Master who is also the creator of Insitus Gear and Antiva Chronus Online:
"Dear player,
For a long time I have been watching over this game and enjoying the sight of people laughing and being happy in the world I have created. But then I noticed that some of you completely forgot about the real world. You turned your back on your families, friends and beloved ones. You used this game to escape from problems of real world and now it's time to teach you that ACO is not an escape.
I've returned all players to the starting point where you have no inventory, no money or skills. You have to start this game anew but this time it will be game of survival. In order to survive you have to work, eat proper food, watch out from illnesses which I have now added into game. It's just like real life except that you still have to fight monsters. None of you will be able to log out until at least one of you has beaten final boss. Just so you know there are total of 1000 bosses, one stronger then the other. Also please do not forget if you die in battle, starve too long, have been sick with strong disease you will die for real. I wish all players good luck!
Yours faithfully,
Kawakami Yoshihiro

What is going to happen in the world of Antiva Chronus Online?

Background:
Antiva Chronus Online consists of 4 main worlds: Terra, Inferna, Subaqua and Caelum. All players start their adventure in capital of Terra – Novus City. In order to get to other world player must complete certain quest and find the passageway to that world.
Terra
The main world of Antive Chronus Online. It is filled with different sceneries both deadly and beautiful and has the biggest variety of monsters in it. With Calm West Sea and Stormy Sea surrounding mainland, it gives a feeling of actual planet Earth. Monsters here also very much represent real animals and Terra is the only world where player can take form according to surroundings (after completing necessary quests).
Inferna
The underworld which is often called as hell. It’s filled with volcanoes and lava rivers. Heat here never goes below 50 degrees Celsius. When players enter this world their skin and hair becomes much thicker, gains bit reddish tone. Simply put, they represent demon looking creatures. There are only two lakes that provide potable water. Most of players are usually found exactly in that region.
Subaqua
The underwater world is the most dangerous world of all. Despite its peaceful looks, any place outside the cities can turn into death trap as waters are always swarming with dangerous sea creatures. When player enters Subaqua his legs turn into fish tail, he gains gills and skin becomes pale with bit of greenish tone.
Caelum
The sky world often called heaven of Antiva Chronus. It is filled with flower fields and beautiful and peaceful creatures. It is safest place in Antiva Chronus, if player manages to learn how to fly. Since Caelum consists of many floating islands, player won’t be able to get anywhere without flight. That is the reason why only few manage to reach it.

BGM: Destiny Awaits

"This battle is over."

The Red Priest spoke calmly, yet definitively as he stepped forward from amidst the rubble, the azure fires that yet burned within the room slowly coalescing around him in a whirlwind of power as he drew them to himself, shaping them slowly into a single, gleaming circle around him, one that was criss-crossed and marked by countless runes and emblems of power. His words were not a taunting, gloating proclamation of victory. Rather, they were a warning: a simple statement of fact, that to continue past this point would be useless, and would only serve to result in his opponent's death. As the magic around him shaped itself into a spell, forming a gleaming wall of charging magic that awaited only his command to rain death upon his immobile target, however, Kanna did not flinch.

"Will you surrender now? I have you at my mercy. I'm afraid that if you don't give up now, your defense and hit points will be insufficient when it comes to withstanding even a single one of my attacks. I don't want to kill you, young miss, but if you don't forfeit, you leave me with no choice," Reneus said sadly.

"I won't surrender. I couldn't do that in good conscience. Not while my comrades are relying on me. Not while Asher is relying on me. That's right... I guess you could say that I have something that I fear more than death."

"Admirable, but regrettable," The Red Priest sighed. "Very well, then. I'm sorry, young miss. Do you have any final words, or requests, for me to deliver to the friends that you hold in such esteem?"

"I do. Just one." Kanna suddenly smiled with mingled triumph and anxiety, and Reneus stopped in his tracks. Something was wrong. As his seemingly defeated opponent spoke, the wizard's eyes went wide with realization and disbelief. Because... Reneus could hear the sound of spinning blades cutting through the air, whirling down from the darkness of the roof above, aimed straight towards him!

"Would you please move?" Kanna asked cheerfully. "I'm afraid that your own spell there will explode if my attacks hit it, and, if that happens, your HP probably won't hold out. I don't want to kill you, Mr. Red Priest, but if you don't get out of the way, I can't really stop my swords once I've thrown them." Reneus had only just enough time upon hearing these words and understanding their meaning to hurl himself to the side. It was fortunate that he was very quick to react, for, had he been a second slower, he would surely have been ripped apart by the two dao swords, the black and white auras of which still shone with the light of Kanna's last spell. Hastily converting his offensive barrage into a defensive barrier, Reneus delayed the unstoppable force of the Vermillion Sparrow's most powerful reinforcement spell only just long enough to fling himself out of the way as another overwhelming explosion of darkness and light shook the tower. Dust rained down from the ceiling, disappearing into blue pixels as soon as it settled on the floor, and Reneus only barely managed to retain his footing as the entire building shivered beneath him.

Unbelievable... The Red Priest thought. She used the explosion of her four other active swords to knock those two out of the way at the last moment, causing them to circle around and attack me! I was so preoccupied with the blades attacking me and the loss of my Familiar that I didn't even realize the Knight had only been cut four times! Then... does that mean she expected me to immobilize her as my opening move? She anticipated my entire plan and then countered it right from the very start! But... how did she manage to redirect those swords after they were enchanted? Their speed should have caused them to strike at the exact same time as the other weapons. She was already in the middle of an attack, wasn't she? Then... how did she manage to deflect the two incoming swords without breaking her own enchantments? She couldn't have... Did she attack once, sheathe her blades, catch the flying swords, and throw them in the opposite direction, all too fast to be seen?! And on top of that, she then re-appeared behind the Knight, drew her swords again, only to sheathe them theatrically to keep me from noticing the time difference in her attacks?! But... how?! To do that, she'd need to be doing multiple things simultaneously! It's not possible to attack at that speed without literally stopping time! Just who is this girl, anyway? Watching in disbelief as the smoke of the explosion cleared, Reneus' surprise only mounted, for in the next instant, he saw something even more astonishing.

Wait a minute... Those two swords were low level weapons. Even with their enchantment, the attack was still a physical-type assault. To have cut through my spells before I could have reacted and either fired or dismissed them would have been impossible! Even if I hadn't moved, I still would have blocked the attack, or at the very least, survived it. Then... she was bluffing me?! But then, what was she aiming f- No. That can't be. She was never aiming at me at all! Her real goal was to use those two swords property of always returning to her to cut apart the rune I used to immobilize her! She only warned me about the attack to get me to panic and move out of the way so that she'd be able to free herself! She not only saw right through me, but she played me for a fool on top of that!

"You..." Reneus murmured, rising from amidst the rubble and staring in shock at his enemy, who calmly stood at the center of the room, dusting herself off as the two dao swords faded once more into her inventory, along with all of the other swords stuck in the floor from her previous storms of attacks. "You've been toying with me this entire time, haven't you? You made it look like I had you on the ropes so that you could close with me and keep me busy while you destroyed my familiar, but then you purposefully stepped into my concealed trap rune just to make me waste my mana, distracting me and then taking me by surprise to destroy my spells!" He wasn't sure why he felt the need to shout this. Perhaps he was hoping that she'd deny his claims, that she would say that things just happened to go her way. But, deep down, he knew that this was not the case. He, who prided himself on his unbeatable battle strategy, had been thoroughly outdone by a true master of planning.

"That's right," Kanna said, smiling with an uncanny serenity and cheerfulness. "Everything that has happened up until this point has done so according to my plan."

"Everything...? No, not everything. Because now I understand what you're trying to do! You plan on beating me at a war of attrition. You used that last spell of yours to regenerate your mana bar to full, and, using that new advantage, you intend to press me until I don't have enough power left to cast spells anymore. Once I'm not able to defend myself, I'll have no choice but to forfeit. That's what you were planning, wasn't it?"

Silence filled the room for a moment, and then, to the astonishment of the flabbergasted priest, Kanna shook her head.

"No," She said quietly. "If you think I didn't expect you to realize what I was doing, then you're wrong. I was well aware of the clues I was leaving for you this whole time." Casually, the Vermillion Sparrow picked up one of her swords, holding it up to the light and inspecting its edge while her enemy watched in disbelief. "I guess you could say... I planned for you to catch on, too."

"What do you mean?" Reneus asked.

"I mean that, even though you know what I've been doing, it's not going to help you win this battle. No, that's wrong. What I mean is that you've already lost. You see, your entire prediction hinges upon an assumption that I'm sad to say is completely false. You thought that your spells would be able to keep me at bay, when that's just not true. Although they'd certainly be more than a match for a normal swordsman, your entire strategy revolves around keeping the enemy from reaching you and fighting you in close quarters, which I don't really need to do. Furthermore, your magic attacks are based on the faulty assumption that only another mage can block them, and that you can overwhelm even such defenses through sheer numbers, like you're a boss in some kind of scrolling shooter game, where the player can only fire bullets along a line, but you can rain elaborate patterns of millions upon millions of bullets across the entire screen. In short, you surpass all other mages by trapping them in a maze of attacks from which they can neither protect themselves nor escape, because you simply have too many spells for one person to deal with. But, an enchanted sword, used as a projectile, is just as good at intercepting magic as another spell is. And, as you know..." Kanna smiled wryly. "I have even more of those than you do spells."

"True. You do surpass me in sheer quantity, but you fail to take into account that you're limited by the inventory system! You can still only fire a certain number of swords at once, while I can cast my spells far faster! If it's a contest of firing speed, then I'm the-"

"That's another wrong assumption you've made," Kanna interjected. "Because now you're failing to take into account that you're not the only one with magic."

"Wait... You can't be serious..." Reneus murmured, his eyes widening as he realized exactly what his enemy meant.

"I'm perfectly serious. I've already planned the course this battle will take, from beginning to end, and I'm sorry to say that you're the one who's going to lose in the end."

"No, that's where you are wrong, Sparrow! See, there's one hole I've already seen in your strategy. All I have to do... Is get the first shot!" With those words, Reneus raised his staff and began to chant. "Rage that sears the heavens, wrath that scars the sky, gather your power within my hands, then spread your wings and FLY! Mjolnir!"

"Nice incantation," Kanna said, smirking as a blast of lightning came searing down from the ceiling, flooding the room with a brilliant light. As the shower of energy came on, however, Kanna simply flicked her sword around backhanded, and then stepped back. She raised the weapon... and then she let go, allowing it to fall and plant itself within the ground. The Red Priest's eyes went wider still as he realized what she was doing far too late to take control of his spell and redirect it. Like a lightning rod, the sword attracted his spell, and, being struck by it, channeled it harmlessly into the stone floor as the blade slipped slowly into the cracks within the stone. And yet, to the astonishment of the Priest, the sword did not stop as it fell into the ground. Rather, as though it had been dropped into a pool of water, it continued slowly sinking, its blade disappearing into the floor as golden ripples began to spread across the stones, a radiant light like that of the sun suddenly shining out from the cracks in the stone.

"Let's see how you like mine." Raising her extended hand to the sky, Kanna now began to chant, the golden pool of light that seemed to have entirely replaced the ground expanding to crawl up the walls of the chamber with each word she spoke, until a towering wall of brilliant golden light had encased them, forming a rippling pillar of energy from the yawning midst of which began to rise countless shapes. Swords of every make and calibur, of every shape and size, slowly rose up from the floor, forming a corridor on either side of the two combatants before expanding upward into a single gleaming golden tower of row after row of slowly rotating swords.

"Guided by experience and driven by iron will, these hands of mine will forever forge blades," Kanna said quietly as the hilt of her sword was eaten up by the golden pool of light, vanishing entirely from view as a single ripple spread across the surface of the entire whirling vortex beneath them, and the innumerable collection of all of the Sparrow's legendary weapons, both present and past, began to emerge. It was impossible to count or identify all of the wondrous swords she had now brought to bear, many so valuable that they could rightly have been called treasures. This arsenal, seemingly endless, was a stock of weapons truly fit for a king, against which the Red Priest's conjurer's tricks could not hope to stand.

"Connection established. Limits removed. Firing without restraint. Continuous Summoning." Those words rang out like a proclamation of doom, silencing even Reneus' next chant as he found his breath taken away by the awesome and terrifying sight of the weapons that now surrounded him. The golden dome encasing them slowly faded from view, and the room around them once more took form, and yet, it had changed a great deal in the wake of Kanna's spell. From every inch of the floor and the walls, swords now stood at the ready, a waiting legion that would engulf its target the moment its master gave it the command to do so. All around them, blades whirled in rings through the air, spiraling back and forth in countless concentric rotating rings from the floor to the ceiling.

BGM: Eiyuu Ou

"You told me you expected a war of attrition. That means that, in this situation, my attempting to fight you through that means would be most advantageous to yourself, yes?" Kanna asked quietly. "Very well then. This spell, Continuous Summoning, allows me to manifest and perfectly control any weapon that is registered as being in my possession, no matter where it may be, for a total of one minute, starting from when I draw any of my swords. If your mana can last that long, then once that time limit is up and I can no longer deploy my weapons freely, you are sure to win this fight. If your assumption is right, then, and you can keep me at bay, then I'll have no choice but to admit that you are stronger than I, and to admit my defeat. But, if my forecast is correct, then even knowing every detail of my plan, your attacks will be unable to prevent my victory. Are you willing to take that gamble to see which of us is right, or will you concede your defeat now?"

"Sorry, but I can't just surrender here, either," Reneus said quietly. "See, I guess you could say I have a bit of a competitive streak, and now you've got me curious. A direct challenge like that... is something I just can't pass up!" With those words, Reneus abruptly raised his staff, releasing a sudden blast of energy straight towards Kanna. Yet, the young white-haired warrior did not so much as move, save to bring down her extended and, and to point at Reneus, even as he began to chant once again, creating several large stone spikes from the floor and then hurling them, also, at his target. In an instant, two blades flashed from the mass of swords hanging all around them, and like lightning, streaked down from the heavens, the Sword of Enchantment slashing apart the incoming beam of magic, absorbing its power and negating it from existence, while Ruby Fang pierced straight through all of the incoming slabs of stone, shattering them all with a tremendous detonation. Frantic now, Reneus hastily created another blast of azure fire, his trademark spell, and hurled it straight for his adversary, but Kanna simply caught the rebounding Sword of Enchantment, sweeping it upward and releasing the mage's own spell right back at him, overwhelming his hastily constructed fireball and forcing him to create another barrier, only to overpower that as well, blasting him backward and slamming him into the wall. Giving a mighty roar, however, he rose immediately, firing off a wave of lightning laced with violet fire, which slammed directly into Kanna, only to part around her as six flashing blades streaked down from the air around her, planting themselves in the ground and scattering the lightning, while Kanna hurled the Sword of Enchantment directly into the oncoming storm of fire, absorbing it and streaking towards Reneus, who only barely managed to bat the sword aside with his staff as it erupted in his own fire, nearly engulfing him with his own spell. Raising his hand once again, Reneus tried to chant another spell, only to realize, to his horror, that in so recklessly attacking his target, he had engineered his own defeat through the outcome he himself had predicted.

He was out of mana.

BGM: Contractor

Flashing with red and blue light, the sheathed twin swords at Kanna's waist began to glow as she activated a skill. The mage's eyes narrowed, and he planted himself firmly, bracing for the attack to come as his enemy at last prepared to move. Kanna, meanwhile, eyed her mana bar, which was still at nearly 75% capacity. Now was her chance. Before Reneus had a chance to recover his energy, she would eliminate him with her very best attack. Checking the half dozen blades planted in front of her, she smiled as her eyes fell upon the most important one of them all: The Sword of Mercy, a blade that would, if used even once in any attack chain, inevitably return the target to 1 HP should it be killed during the combo. That would ensure her enemy's survival, which in turn meant she could go all out without any hesitation!

And so, the Vermillion Sparrow prepared herself... and used the most powerful of all Sword Skills she possessed: Judgement Phantasm.

"Fly, Sylphae Step," Kanna chanted, snapping her fingers. At the same time, all six swords in front of her rose into the air around her, and them, aiming directly in towards Reneus, fired straight towards him. The mage, seeing the incoming barrage of attacks, raised his staff and began a basic defensive skill, twirling it ever faster and faster in front of him as the half-dozen blades came on. One after another, they impacted his whirling weapon, and were set spiraling harmlessly up into the air. However, just as Kanna had predicted, he was momentarily overbalanced by this, taking a step back as he was nearly knocked over by the force of the six impacts. Now was her chance. Bracing herself, she leaped forward, laying hold of the two sheathed swords at her sides. Sliding a finger beneath the crossguard of Tempest, she flicked it from its sheath, using her momentum as she suddenly launched towards her enemy as a lever to catapult the weapon into the air. "Sever and Transcend..." Kanna continued, drawing Gale and sweeping it at her target in a low strike. The moment the blue falchion left its sheathe, however, its enchantment attracted its airborne sister sword, causing Tempest to abruptly point itself downward, its blade angling straight at Reneus. As the wizard leveled his staff to intercept the one incoming blade, he found the second abruptly striking the very center of his weapon's haft, releasing a sudden, piercing burst of compressed air just as Gale released a violent concussive force into the head of his staff. With a loud crack, the weapon was suddenly shattered in his hands, sending him staggering backwards from the force that was thus redirected into his own body. Before he could fall, however, Kanna had already caught Tempest back-handed, and continued her assault.

"Sylphae Blade!" She finished, as, flicking Gale into a reverse grip as well using the force of its own impact, she swept it upward, slamming it into the remaining lower half of Reneus' staff. The wizard had no time to brace himself for this second, much stronger release of concussive force into his body, and, augmented as it was by the two enchantments Kanna had just cast, he found himself literally picked up off the ground by the force of the impact, while at the same time, the remains of his staff were completely destroyed, vanishing into blue pixels within his grasp. But, he had no time to worry about his broken weapon, for to his horror, he found that, even in mid air, he was not safe from attack, for the six swords he had already deflected were just reaching the apex of their flight and, instead of falling, had angled themselves inward, forming a ring of swords all around him.

Kanna, meanwhile, never stopped moving for an instant. In the moment that she dealt her slash with Gale, she released it, allowing it to fly underneath Reneus and off towards the far wall. At the same time, spinning with the momentum of her own slash, she did a full rotation, lowering herself to one knee as she did so. Then, turning herself upward, she swept Tempest up as she stood once again, releasing this sword as well and sending it flying up like a javelin straight towards her airborne enemy. As Reneus at last stopped rising, he only had enough time to cry out in horror before all six swords around him collapsed inward, impaling him a half-dozen times over just as Tempest stabbed directly through his chest, releasing a piercing explosion of wind inside his body as a spurt of red pixels exploded into the air. In an instant, Reneus' health bar had dropped from almost full to near half, but Kanna was far from done.

"The mind bores through the mountain," She chanted as now it was Gale's turn to be attracted by Tempest, spiraling back around from its initial flight outward, circling up over Reneus as he once more began to fly into the air, and spinning down to drive itself straight into his back. One explosion of pure concussive force ripped through the Red Priest's body, followed by another as the blades of Tempest and Gale met, producing a veritable hurricane inside the wizard's torso and scattering countless scarlet slashes all across his digital form as his hitpoints depleted into the red. Like a star falling to the earth, the wizard was sent hurtling downward towards the ground, only to find Kanna sweeping up yet another sword, the Sword of Enchantment, to meet him, releasing an overwhelming explosion of azure flames from its edge as she plunged it clear through his body along with the other eight swords impaling him, releasing his own spell yet again and sending him flying backward. Yet, abruptly, his flight towards the far wall was suddenly stopped, and he found himself suspended as though crucified, hanging in the air just as his Familiar had done while Kanna spawned her throwing daos once again.

"The sword divides the river!" She chanted, hurling both daos at her immobilized target as she began to rush forward, naught more than a blur as she streaked like a bullet towards her target, spawning her second pair and continuing the chant. "The power of light and darkness is within my two hands!" From within all of the swords embedded in her enemy's body, and all around the weapons in her hands, a familiar black and white aura began to take shape as Kanna cast the second set of daos. The first pair swept up across Reneus' shoulders, slashing across his body before arcing up towards the ceiling, aiming to angle themselves back towards their wielder, yet instead finding themselves called right back towards their target once more from behind as the Vermillion Sparrow closed the gap. "Black or white?!" She continued. At the same time, the second set of thrown swords carved across his sides before spiraling out to the left and right and coming back around as Kanna called Ruby Fang to her hand, and, with a mighty stab, plunged it, as well, through the Red Priest's body, then slashed it out of his side and spinning out of the way just as both sets of thrown swords carved across their target yet again, spiraling around once more for a final pass. At this point, the large part of the textures on her enemy had been torn away by either the "cut" animation, or the countless gleaming wings erupting from within his body, causing him to resemble a pincushion of glowing red, black, and white pixels more than he did a Human being. His health bar, too, had been completely depleted by this point, reducing him to zero and beyond as he was kept from disappearing by the continued hits he sustained. A shower of crimson scattered into the air as Kanna bisected her target, then spun around behind him, pivoting with the force of her own slash and leveling her rapier, coming around behind her foe in a two-handed stabbing stance as she completed the chant.

"FINISHING MOVE: ENMA'S JUDGEMENT CUT!"

Roaring those words, Kanna drove Ruby Fang clear through her enemy's body just as all four thrown swords collided with him from the front and the sides, impaling him as well. The blades of Ruby Fang, Tempest, Gale, The Sword of Enchantment, and all of the matching daos met at once inside Reneus' chest... and, releasing all of their enchantments at once, exploded with the force of a particularly large bomb as the entire room was consumed by a brilliant spiral of black and white as a Taijitu took form with the defeated wizard at its center, crushing down upon him with overhwelming force even as all 14 swords impaling his body tore out of him, scattering in all directions as he was flung into the air... only to find Kanna already there waiting for him, holding Vermillion Talon - encased in not one, but two wings, the one black and the other white - in one hand, and a brightly glowing stopwatch in the other.

"It's useless," She said quietly, leveling her sword. Reneus only had time to give a final gasp of dismay before the spinning symbol of ying and yang suddenly froze, and the world itself stood still for an instant.

When time began to move once again, Kanna stood holding her sword on the opposite side of Reneus, and a gleaming network of nine crimson slashes was spread across the wizard's body. The first slash severed his arm, then twisted into a second cut through his collarbone, which in turn cut back through his windpipe, before carving up into his temple, down through his head and through his diaphragm, before splitting his entire torso from his ribcage to his waist. Turning this into a slash across what was left of both of his legs, Kanna had at last, while time was still frozen, cut Vermillion Talon straight through his heart as she flew past him, completing her ninth and final slash. For a instant, in the wake of all nine simultaneous cuts, a brief vacuum was created as Kanna and her sword, existing along all points of the nine-pronged attack and the space it and she had traversed during the time stop, displaced the simulated air around them. For a moment in time, the room was entirely silent as Reneus' eyes widened, his mind finally grasping that he'd been cut.

Then, Kanna sheathed her sword and slipped the watch into her pocket. The swords filling the room all vanished into ripples of golden light... and the Red Priest exploded into crimson light, his body entirely torn apart into its component pixels, before being crushed down into non-existence. A victory screen appeared into the empty, devastated room, and Kanna turned, smiling as the Taijitu blinked out of existence... and Reneus reformed on the floor, surrounded by the destroyed wreckage of his staff, his familiar, and his chamber, gasping for breath as his body spontaneously reconstituted itself at one HP and 0 mana.

"It's my victory, Reneus," Kanna said quietly.

"So it is," He said quietly, smiling wryly as he slowly fell back into a seated position. "You were right, young miss. That attack of yours... there was no possible way I could have survived it if you hadn't wanted me to. I know when I'm beaten. Go on, then. Take your victory, and go help those friends of yours. I won't stand in your way any longer."

"Thank you, Mr. Red Priest. Until we meet next," Kanna replied, smiling and bowing as she gave an overly polite and formal farewell, then turned to head for the stairs, leaving Reneus in darkness as the last of his flames finally died out.

"Ah... what an unusual person. She seemed so timid and polite, and yet she was far stronger than even me... I never... had a chance... That... clever... girl." Sighing, Reneus shut his eyes, and slumped where he sat, too tired to even stand.
