0 · 859 views · located in The Other Side

a character in “Black and White”, as played by Kagerou

Description

Appearance: Image

Name:

Fujiwara no Hatsutama

Nicknames:

Kogo, which is the only name she goes by in modern times.

Age:

Physical age is around 24.

Gender:

Female

Height & Weight:

Stands at 5'1" and weighs around 120 pounds.

Additional details:

She's collected a few tattoos over her years by artists long dead.

Personality:

Kogo is...well, Kogo. She is loud, she is proud, she is...drunk. The woman is constantly drinking whatever she can, whenever she can. She may not look it, but she is also very much a flirt who does not discriminate with whom she flirts (unless they are underage, of course.) Kogo is a lot more irritable when she is drunk, constantly getting into fights and causing a ruckus of some sort. She loves to pull pranks on strangers and has an overall odd sense of humor. On the rare occasions that she is herself, however, Kogo is a serious person. Her indifference to the world is a learned trait, since those she gets close to die eventually. Her experiences have made her almost cold to those she meets, but once someone gets to know her, she can be sweet. Her methods of doing things may be outdated, but she prefers it that way over these newfangled devices they have now. What the hell is a "smartphone" anyways. It seemed like yesterday, they made a machine that could take you places faster without horses!

Weaknesses:

*She is stubborn and very set in her ways of doing things.
*Her drunkenness impairs her judgement sometimes (or a lot of times).
*Her flirtatious nature can get her in a bind.
*Deep down, Kogo is very afraid of death. She has lived basically forever and does not want that to end any time soon.

Red

Hobbies:

*Drinking [duh]
*Sewing
*Painting

Desires:

Kogo's deepest desire is to just experience the world as it changes. She wants to keep travelling and wandering.

Profession:

She brews her own sake and sells it. "Like father, like daughter."

History:

Kogo was born sometime in classical Japan. From what she can remember of her childhood, her life had always been on the move as war had torn Japan apart. Regardless of this, Kogo was happy as she helped her mother and siblings with simple tasks. Her father was almost always away as he protected his family from whatever enemy was trying to take over the area at the time. Looking back, the woman thanks her stars that she had a relatively uneventful life. She could have easily gotten sick and died, or been killed in a battle, or what have you. Some of her siblings had passed away as children or were stillborn, but she was healthy for the most part. Her mother died not long after her twentieth birthday. Being the oldest, Kogo had to take over until the youngest was old enough to be married and away from home. It was just the way things were.

Almost four years, and Kogo was in her family home doing what was expected of her. Most of her family still lived at home and she was waiting for a certain brother to return before going on with her evening. Kogo was wandering through the front of the house when she heard yelling from outside. Peeking out cautiously, there was a group of men arguing with two of her brothers while shaking something around. It seemed it was getting even more heated when one of the strange men chucked something up towards the door. When it landed with a soft squish, Kogo couldn't help but cry out. Blood was streaked on the door and her father's eyes looked lifeless as his disembodied head rolled about a foot away. This caused the arguing to cease suddenly as they all stared at her. Time itself had seemed to halt for just a moment. When that moment passed, everyone had started to move. Kogo could only think enough to shut the door before someone was pounding on it. Blades were striking against one another. Gurgles and screams about honor were streaming through the air. She tried to gather the rest of the children before the strange men had broken in and were ransacking her home. One of her sisters was not lucky enough to be found before she was cut down.

Kogo tried her best, but there was just not enough time. The group of men had found the rest of her family and brutally slaughtered them. Kogo was protecting the youngest two, twin girls of about five years old. Of course, Kogo knew she was going to die. She knew there wasn't anything she could do. She would be damned if she didn't try! As the men came into view, a voice whispered out to her. "You can protect them, you know..." Obviously spooked, Kogo tried to find the source of the voice, but failed to find it. Then it spoke again. "Come on, don't you want to save your family? I can help you!" It was a voice Kogo could not place. The voice persisted. "Let's make a deal!" The woman was desperate. Her sisters looked up at her with terrified eyes and she knew she had to do something. With the slightest nod from Kogo, the voice giggled. "Good choice. In exchange for power, I want your time. Give me that...and I will give you the ability to get rid of your problem." Kogo didn't quite understand what the voice meant by time, but she didn't have a choice. Another quick nod came from the woman. Another giggle was the response. "Okay...there's no going back!"

Almost instinctively, Kogo held up her hand. The next few minutes blur together in her mind, but she remembers a blinding light suddenly shooting across the room and landing in the chest of the first man. He fell, instantly dead. The others started yelling at her "witchcraft" and debated back and forth on what to do. Another beam of light took off and barely missed the face of the man furthest away from Kogo and her sisters. This prompted the men to run off, cursing the house and Kogo as they left. Kogo released a breath she didn't realize she was holding in. A glance down to the children revealed their relief but also their new found fear in their caretaker. Kogo quietly told them to hide while she checked the rest of the house. Needless to say, the silence confirmed for Kogo what had transpired. Body after body was discovered, most of them being her brothers and sisters. It seemed the valuables had been stolen and the home mostly destroyed. Kogo and her younger sisters were all that was left. Kogo decided to take some of their possessions and some of the money she had hidden away and leave that night. They never returned to that house.

The three of them struggled to get by. Each one did odd jobs for money and food, but they had found shelter in a nearby village. Kogo was afraid of herself for a little while after everything happened. The voice did not return for a long while. News from Europe had come of a great battle between The Wizard and The Warrior, but otherwise no one in Japan had really known what happened. They all heard the stories and passed them around but life went on as normal. The girls had grown up, but over the years it had become apparent that something was...off about Kogo. Her appearance never changed. As everyone grew old, she stayed young. At first, this was a lovely surprise! Men were always asking for her. Many people had written poems about her after her condition became known. Kogo got caught up in the attention, forgetting her woes.

And then the twins passed away.

It was the reality check she needed. The deal she had made clicked. She gave up her time...she was stuck at 24 years old. Would she ever...die? How many years had it been since that awful night? Kogo found that the more she wondered, the more she drank. The more she drank, the more trouble she got in. After getting kicked out of many bars across Japan, Kogo decided to travel and never stopped. Her soul felt compelled to see what she didn't know. She kept her magic to herself and made sure to stay out of the limelight as technology burst onto the scene. She had the time to learn, so this was part of her quest as well. Centuries passed, and Kogo is now travelling through the United States. The last time she had been through, it hadn't even been a full blown country yet! Maybe she would meet some people like her along the way...she had a feeling magic was about to make a comeback.

So begins...

The sun was at its highest point when a certain woman entered Timerland. It was just a little blot on the map that she possessed, but she wanted to go anyways. A strange feeling came across her mind as she walked down what seemed to be the main hub. People were whispering about some tragedy that had happened the day before. They stared at her as she passed. Her dark red eyes glared back at whoever dared to look for too long. Some visibly shivered and shrunk away. It serves them right. With a smile that could unnerve even the most bullheaded, she kept her sights on the road ahead of her. Almost like magic, people made a path for her. They all knew by instinct there was something off about the woman in front of them. This was part of the reason why she was a lone traveler, just her against the world! She wandered around the town more. The woman didn't know quite what she was looking for, but knew she needed a place to rest. The whispers eventually died down as her feet carried her farther into the town. "It's finally quiet..." Her voice was deeper than one would expect out of a woman of her stature, almost seductive in nature. There was also an odd accent blanketing her words. With a sigh, she directed her course to a nearby tavern. It was mainly an attempt to gather some information about where she could spend the night, but it was also possible that she could mix business and pleasure. More likely, she would just stir up some trouble. Her favourite pastime.

The door squeaked open as she pushed her way into the tavern. The patrons had given her a few glance overs before returning to their daily rituals. The woman approached the bar. The bartender waited for her to order something, but she just stared him down for a minute before he backed away from her. An older man was seated next to her, obviously annoyed that this young person was in a bar at this hour. She heard him mutter something about "those damn Chinese" but shrugged. She looked at him from the corner of her eye as she ordered a coke and rum. As she sipped, more folks came into the bar for lunch. She continued to drink until the bar was settled back down again. The place did not have a lot of windows and mainly relied on artificial light. Perfect for her. She slurped loudly when her drink was empty and set it down gently. She ordered another drink for herself while turning up the charm in her eyes to look at a man across the room. He looked bored eating his lunch with an equally boring looking woman. They locked gazes and the man's face turned red. She made a giggling noise and pretended to look away. Ever so slowly, the lights started to dim down. Most humans didn't really notice, but her interest had. She gave him all the normal hints: winking, sitting in a provocative way, making sure to use her tongue ever so slightly. The woman he was with had gotten up to go to the restroom, oblivious to her husband's looks. The man bolted up as soon as his wife was out of sight and was seated next to the strange woman in a heartbeat. She had to hold back a laugh. Men were all the same. Well, almost. His eyes were looking her up and down. Poor thing probably hadn't even gotten a second glance from a woman in months! Before he could stutter out anything, the woman gave him a smile. He asked for her name, which made her laugh. "My name? Kogo is all you need to know." Kogo stated while touching the man's hand lightly. The lights were barely shining at this point, and the man took this as a good time to make a move. His attempts at a kiss were pathetic to Kogo, but she let it happen anyways. Besides, the real fun was about to start. A feminine gasp came out from behind her and Kogo glanced over her shoulder at the wife. The look on her face was priceless! The man's face was even more mortified. He couldn't get an excuse out before the wife had a handful of Kogo's raven black hair. Kogo could only smile. She loved a good bar fight.

The woman couldn't even move Kogo an inch before Kogo removed her hand from her hair. "I wouldn't do that, little miss. It won't end up good for you~ Wouldn't want to mess up that pretty face of yours!" Kogo teased her. The woman was surprised at how much pressure this little Japanese girl had on her wrist. Kogo let go of her only to pull a half-force punch right into the woman's chest. It was more than enough to knock the breath out of her. The woman stumbled and threw a lazy punch back as she fell on her ass. Kogo, being much more experienced in fights, easily dodged. If that was the best this woman could do, well...where's the fun in that? "You're gonna have to do better than that, young one. Come on!" Kogo's voice was annoyed, which only fueled the woman's hate more. She got back on her feet surprisingly quick and manged to land a few good hits on Kogo's arms and neck. At this point, the rest of the bar was gathered around cheering. Kogo still had a smile on the whole time she was being hit. Women who liked to get feisty were the best to watch. All those curves up close! That was almost as intoxicating as the liquor she drank. "Mmm~" She couldn't help but sigh. She couldn't appreciate it for long. She had to swing back after all! Kogo swung back, again at half force, making sure to avoid the woman's face. In three punches to the stomach and shoulder, the woman was down for the count. Before the woman was even on the ground, the lights went out completely. In a flash, Kogo had disappeared and the lights mysteriously came back on full force. The bar was in an uproar with Kogo sitting about 100 yards away from the entrance. She smiled yet again, pleased that she managed to kill an hour of time. Timberland was turning out to be fun.

Things were falling apart pretty quickly. For the most part, her comments seemed to have been unheard or ignored, though she couldn’t exactly blame them. Things had been more than a little crazy as of late. Vaguely, she’d heard Miranda speak about having someone ‘handle’ the mess before she’d headed out, the creepy cleaner had eerily mopped up the entire mess and had taken a seat at the table with his burger, and to top it all off, Taja was speaking with a floating, ethereal representation of Rina. Sienna’s worldview had been shaken and changed by recent events, but that was kicking it up to a whole new level of unfathomable change. She’d had enough of it at this point.

“I don’t want to be associated with any of this or these weirdos…” Sienna mumbled to herself, briefly looking to where Rina’s body was before reminding herself why that was a bad idea, grimacing and heading back out to the hall. Yohan had ducked out somewhere, who knew where. Frankly, she didn’t care. Maybe he’d had the common sense to bail before all this shit went down. Then again, it was his house; chances were he was hiding somewhere. Either way, she wasn’t about to go look. She’d had enough of dealing with these people. It was time she got herself out, did whatever she could to clear her name and maybe get back to something resembling a normal life. At first she’d considered consulting with them, negotiating some sort of agreed compromise into how to tackle the situation, but to hell with it! She didn’t owe them jack shit, what had they done for her? If anything, they were to blame for dragging her into all this crap!

“Stop smirking.” Sienna stated with a glare, Sinopia simply looking amused as she watched Sienna pick herself up off the wall, heading for the door. The cat had started being oddly quiet, letting Sienna work through things, but Sienna didn’t know if that was a good thing or not. It was refreshing, if a little strange now. She was almost used to the intrusions at this point. Pushing open the door and stepping outside, Sienna squinted in the natural light. Well, at least the sky was normal… Shutting the door behind her, she took a moment to get her bearings of the local area, not really recognising any nearby landmarks, it didn’t look too hopeful until she could spot a somewhat far off church steeple in the distance. Judging by that, she had a rough idea of where she was relative to her place, as well as the local police station.

“Well, that’s a start at least…” Sienna mumbled, beginning her walk. Though she wasn’t fit, she didn’t own a car since that whole mess with her parents, so she was somewhat used to it despite her laziness. On the way, she wasn’t sure if people were staring at her or if it was her imagination. It was a small town, and it wasn’t exactly known for big news like this. It wouldn’t be entirely unreasonable to think that she’d be recognised. Steadily making her way in towards town, as Yohan seemed to live further out on the outskirts, she slowly began taking in the sights, piecing together a mental map of the area. It never hurt to know your way around, and if by some unfortunate miracle she ended up in this area again, it wouldn’t hurt to be prepared. As she thought about it more and more, she realised that this was pretty much the opposite direction as they’d generally headed from the gym in that other parallel world. The place synced up in general topography too it seemed, with similar hills and valleys.

“If that’s the case, then…” Sienna looked to the side as she came past it. In the other world, it had been a somewhat large and dilapidated building. Here, it seemed to be a bar. Briefly looking to the exterior, she felt something odd in the pits of her stomach. She didn’t have any idea why, but it just… Made her feel uncomfortable. An unease. Dismissing it as simply her hunger catching up with her, she continued to walk on her way, not noticing Sinopia following behind her, intently staring at the woman that stood nearby. Perhaps the cat could have warned her of the danger or said something, but for now, Sinopia felt it was prudent that Sienna learn some lessons on her own.

Kogo did not know for how long she stood in that place. The sun was starting to set and the woman sighed. She was about to push herself from the tree she was standing on before her skin started to crawl. Someone with magic was approaching her. It seemed they had noticed her as well when a girl with fire red hair was walking in front of her, glancing at her as she passed. Kogo stared intently at the girl before calling out to her. "Child, you shouldn't be out on your own..." Kogo began to focus on the girl. Her power...her power had a different source. Kogo could not figure out who she was connected to. "Return to those you're connected to. I would hate to think what would happen to such a cute little lady such as yourself if someone other than me found you." Kogo gives the girl an out of place smile. Whether the girl knew it or not, Kogo was being completely serious. If she could find her, who else would be drawn to her? She didn't look much older than a regular teenager and probably didn't know how to use her powers properly. The woman felt a slight rage in her heart. When she found out who let their charges wander around defenseless, she was going to give them a good can of whoop ass! Her red eyes met those of the ginger's. "It really won't be safe for you if you stray too far. There's more of those who are like us than you think...and not all of them have good intentions." With this, Kogo waved and went on her way. There was more magic in the area that was gathering together and it felt oh so familiar.

It did not take the older woman long to sniff out where it was all coming from. There were six of them, all ranging in ages from young adults to probably middle teens. She didn't know why they were all gathered there, but something told Kogo that it probably wasn't going to turn out well. There was no sense in slipping away, as even the most uninitiated folk of the Black and the White would be able to feel her presence. She stood outside the building for a few moments before feeling something odd. It was similar to that girl she found earlier, but this connection between these six was different. Why had they been in a group? She could tell from the looks on their faces that none knew why they were there exactly either. So, they had not yet been awakened to the Black yet...Kogo snickered. This would be something unusual. Plus, this connection phenomenon was practically unheard of in the magic community.

Kogo walked up to the door of the Sunny Shield after a blonde girl had gone inside. She did not knock, she simply entered into the room. All six of the members stared at her. Kogo grinned and stared directly at the owner of this place. "Well, well, well. So...you're the reason they're all here. Interesting..." Kogo approached the one-eyed woman. "You seem confused. You must be new to it as well. This keeps getting better and better!" Kogo chuckled as she looked around. "The name is Kogo. You'll probably need my help in explaining everything..." She glanced back at the woman who seemed to be the leader. "What's your name, cutie? I'm dying to know!"

“Huh?” Was the first thing out of Sienna’s mouth once she realised that someone was talking to her. She missed the first part of whatever this woman said, something about the dangers of being alone? I mean, maybe in other neighbourhoods, but Timberland? With the exception of those car crashes, this place was quieter than a nun’s bedroom. Pausing a moment at that thought, Sienna wondered if Sinopia was perhaps affecting her in ways she didn’t realise. Regardless of that, the comments that Sienna should be returning to the people she’s ‘connected to’ gave her a little cause for concern, but it was probably just paranoia after all the crazy events that had happened. She was calling her cute after all; maybe she thought Sienna had a partner? That and it wasn’t safe to walk alone. Weird way of saying it, but for some reason, Sienna could tell that this woman wasn’t exactly normal.

Though Sienna wasn’t in a particularly good mood, nor did she feel like being cordial, it was easier just to say thanks and be on her way. In fact, she began doing just that, muttering a pleasantry and continuing on her walk. It was only after she got a few steps away and the woman’s voice came in from behind her did she stop cold. "It really won't be safe for you if you stray too far. There's more of those who are like us than you think...and not all of them have good intentions." Sienna whirled to meet the gaze of the woman, staring her down intently. There was no more ‘coincidences or other explanations for what that lady was hinting at. She knew. What she knew, Sienna wasn’t sure, but she was definitely talking about what had happened in that other place.

“Just what are you-?” Sienna started, but the woman had already said her piece, waving and making her way away from her. “Hey, I was talking to-“ For the second time, Sienna found herself getting cut off as she heard her name, a member of the police calling to her and making an approach. They’d been sent here to investigate an altercation at the bar, and instead found themselves encountering a missing person. Relieved but also a little intimidated, Sienna turned to face the young man before her, nodding. “Yeah, that’s me. I was uh, making my way to the station…” She admitted, before getting a barrage of questions. Where had she been? Was she okay? Did she know about any other girls that had gone missing? Those and more were thrown her way with increasing urgency, though she managed to stay calm throughout, nodding. “Yeah, they’re down at Yohan’s place.” Thumbing behind her, Sienna wracked her brain a bit, thankful she’d taken the time to familiarise herself with the area as she gave the street number.

From there, she answered the simpler stuff as best she could, but asked if maybe they could continue the discussion at the station. Maybe get a formal statement made, as well as some privacy. As a small aside, she also indicated that she was really in need of some sustenance. The cop seemed nice enough; he obliged with helping Sienna to the vehicle while his partner checked the inside of the bar and fixed that up. Relaxing in the back seat, Sienna vaguely listened to the man speak over the radio to his superiors and colleagues about finding her, as well as the lead towards the rest of the missing people. There were lots of questions and discussion, Sienna occasionally asked for comment, but it was clear neither he nor the operator on the other end of the line were too experienced with a situation like this.

“Sit tight kid. We’re uh, on the case. We’ll talk about what happened back at the station, but uh…” Eying Sienna over, the man seemed to be trying to work something out. “You look alright to me, no uh…” He stumbled over his words a little, Sienna nodding. “I’m not on drugs or anything no. Other than cigarettes. Do you mind if I-?” Sienna asked hopefully, the man shaking his head. “Oh, sorry. No smoking in the back. Don’t worry; we’ll get to the station as soon as Officer Milroy gets back.” Nodding again, Sienna sighed and slouched, leaning her chin in her hand. It was going to be a long day.

Sebastian sat on the couch in the lounge, sat back he was no longer in his travel gear, the leathers elsewhere in the building out the way. With Sonea brewing up tea or coffee for the guests, he glanced around to everyone, likely awkward silence, for the first few minutes, what with four strangers brought to the same place, by the same dream, vision.

Sebastian glanced to the one chair empty in the room, he stood up and stretched.
“i need to check my dead eye, please excuse me” he walked from the lounge and towards the bathroom, after getting directions from the host in the kitchen; fetching, his medicine and heading there. He’d close the door and look at himself in the mirror, Removing the eyepatch he’d, push his hair aside to expose the scarred tissue and the fleshy fused ball that was once an eye. The remains fused with his eyelids.

He began his common procedure of medicine and applying the cream, to keep it from drying out and otherwise becoming worse, as he finished up he glanced to the toilet seat where something. Someone was sat watching him.

“I don’t like being ignored, though you’d know that aswell” Sebastian, stumbled back nearly tripping over, this stranger was identical to himself everything down to the scars.

“who the fuck are you!?” the other Sebastian just laughed standing up and crossing its arms a smirk on its lips.“poor little Seb, not a clue what’s going on; I’m you, dumbass. But I don’t let the petty things such as morality and being good...stop me getting what i want.” the inner demon swung its leg in catching Sebastian’s knee and buckling it, before slamming its hand against Sebastian’s throat.

In reality, to any other, watching Sebastian if they could, he might have been fighting his own limbs or fighting something not visible. “and that thing i want: is control” the grip tightened but Sebastian forced out “Fuck you, shithead” the demon grinned and threw Sebastian to the wall. When Sebastian, regained composure he glanced about the room and saw nothing.

He pulled himself up from the floor and looked into the mirror before putting the eyepatch back on, his neck bruising a little from the grip he had on himself. He came back into the lounge with a stranger there, going on about ‘being new to it as well’

“New to what?” his eye fell upon where he was seated before, sat cross legged as if nothing happened, was the other him, that sadist’s smirk on its lips.

“the fun is only just beginning...friend”

Felix was a bit startled to be met by the woman he’d seen at the store earlier. What’s more, the way she greeted him suggested she had been expecting him to arrive.

Rather shaken by whatever crazy stuff was happening right now, he stood blankly in the doorway for several seconds. It wasn’t until the young black haired man currently talking to the shop owner introduced himself that he came back to his senses.

“Oh, hi. I’m Felix, good to meet you both.” he replied, brightening up and offering to shake hands with Sebastian and Sonea. “But…seriously, what the hell is going on?”

“Yeah, actually, I think I’ve seen you around too.” He told Sebastian, still shaking slightly. As he looked around at the array of weapons, he made a sort of silent ‘whoa’. He didn’t have a clue what any of them were called, but he still thought it was pretty cool. “I know the card said this was a smithy but I thought it would just be, I dunno, horseshoes or something.” he remarked, placing the cake he'd brought on one of the tables our counters absent-mindedly.

Felix turned to the doorway at the arrival of a young blonde haired woman, around highschool age if he had to guess. He was about to greet her when yet another new arrival appeared. This one seemed…different somehow. What shook him was that she seemed to be suggesting she, in fact, knew exactly what was happening. And apparently, the shop's owner Sonea didn't. This was just getting more confusing by the second

“Er…yeah,” he began, after Sebastian had come back into the room and asked about what exactly was new. “I think we’d all kind of like to know what’s happening here.”

As the people began to make their way to the Shop, Sonea ushered the collective people inside. One by one they would enter and Sonea would smile a bit sheepishly, rubbing the back of her neck as she had no idea what was going on herself. She smiled warmly at Felix and rubbed the back of her head again.

"Honestly I haven't the faintest clue. I kinda hope to try and figure it out myself"

There was clearly a look of confusion on her face as she laughed a bit nervously at Sebastian's statement about what she did to him and simply replied to him.

"I really don't know. It just kinda happened...I am honestly just as confused as you are about the whole thing. Also yeah it is! I made it myself. I made everything you see here"

As more guests came, the door opened loudly to show the eleven year old boy with a jar of pickles, Cayson. Sonea couldnt help but laugh at the adorable child and ushered him past all of the weapons and armor into her apartment area, next answering the door for Amber, whom had already called inside.

"Hello there! Welcome to the Sunny Shield, I am Sonea. Please come in and join us for tea. Everyone is in the living room past the open doorway"

Sonea remarked and then she shut the door once more and started to head towards the apartment section before the door opened again to reveal Kogo. This took Sonea back a bit, surely she had never seen this woman before in her life and she knew for certain that the cat had not touched her at all. The confusion was evident on her face as she ahemmed a bit and put on her best smile for Kogo while looking down at her a bit.

"Hi I am Sonea...and I really have no idea what is going on at this point. I am a bit fuzzy on this whole situation"

Above Kogo's head, now appeared the Cat whom lazily floated above her with a small purr on his lips

"Now this is interesting...I would instruct your crew to keep this woman's opinions in mind. She might have a few more keys to that thing you call a noggin"

"Though if you do have any sort of information Miss Kogo, I am sure I would love to hear it. As the rest of the people here would love to know" She gave her a grin and then disappeared for a few minutes, now having everyone in the main living area of the apartment and a tray of tea with crackers and cheese spread for everyone.

Now all attention focused on Kogo...

Kogo looked around at the various members. The woman she was speaking to introduced herself as Sonea, which she put into her mental memory. She would probably be here for a while, so it would probably be a good thing to remember. She waited a moment for everyone to settle and start to listen before she continued with her banter. "Sonea, huh? Pretty name for a beautiful lady such as yourself." Kogo winked at her and followed her into another room. It seemed a get together was underway, as everyone had brought a food item. Once they had settled in their spots, Kogo stood in the middle of the room. "So, none of you know why you're here?" Some of them nodded, others just stared at her. Kogo snickered. "Oh, boy. You're in for a treat then..." The strange woman turned and pointed at Sonea. "This little lady here has probably given you all what's known as the Black." She waited a moment before continuing. "I don't think it was on purpose...and it's not a disease...kind of." Kogo started a little pace, thinking about how she wanted to word things.

"You see...the Black is just one part of this equation. Essentially, the Black gives you the ability to use...'magic.'" She put air quotes around the word magic as she explained. "The Black enters and leaves the world on a regular basis...so this is just a time where it wants to show up again. This time it manifested in your girl Sonea over here." She smiled at the poor girl. "I don't know how or why, but it seems you've all been...connected to her. It's a rare occurrence! Congrats! ...Except it seems to be if she is somehow forcefully disconnected, say...by dying or being killed....you will also all perish. Tragic." Kogo tried to let them process this, especially Sonea. "However, as long as you guys work together, that probably won't happen. And that's where the magic comes in...but it doesn't seem like you have that quite yet." Kogo sighed. She looked to Sonea. "Is there...a 'person' or...something only you can see?" Kogo waited for an affirmative response before nodding herself. "That thing...is part of you. Whether you believe it or not, it is not my concern. It's true, regardless of you denying that it is true." Kogo paused again, letting the information she was giving sink in.

The woman continued to pace a bit faster as she spoke. "There is another 'part' of magic called the White. The Black is the 'darker' side. It tends to corrupt you faster than the White would, and is...more grim, I suppose. Don't let anyone tell you that just because you have the Black that you are evil. There have been plenty of people over the years that have had the White and have done horrendous things." Kogo sighed. Speaking for a long time in English wore her out sometimes. "Bottom line, shit might happen soon and the Black picked you to deal with it. Just like it chose me a loooong time ago. Well..maybe it didn't choose me, but I made a deal and gained the Black. But that's another story for another time." Kogo looked at each and every member at least once. "I wonder what is going on to make this...connection thing happen though...Very strange." Kogo mused to herself. "I know I just dumped a bunch of information on you, but feel free to ask me more. I might not know everything, but I do know some things." Kogo sat down on her knees. She braced herself for the barrage of questions she would get from the poor kids. It was probably going to be a long night.

Sebastian glanced to Kogo and then when she mentioned ‘seeing someone or something’, Seb looked at the smaller woman and sighed. “So the identical looking bastard over on the couch, only i can see him?” he pointed to the empty spot where he had been sitting, the inner demon shakes his head chuckling at Sebastian’s animosity towards it.


“It’s not all that bad, you’re never alone” it smiled a big shit eating grin at Sebastian and let out a laugh. It stood up and stretched wandering from the room and out of view.

Sebastian shook his head mumbling “that’s fantastic” he fell back into his seat and looking rather annoyed and generally irked he kept his only eye out for whatever his demon was up to, for all he knew the damn thing was plotting to get him hit by a bus.

“that’s a good one, i’ll take notes” the voice suddenly back Seb glanced around curling his dominant hand into a fist. “easy hot blood, i’m in your head, though i think you’d need to ask the important questions.”

Seb looked to Kogo and raised an eyebrow, “you never introduced yourself, how can we trust anything you say and secondly how the hell do you know so much” he crossed his arms and leaned back, he wasn’t in the best of moods, no thanks to the asshole in his head.

Felix was still staring around at the weapons on the walls, mouth agape, as he was ushered into another room. This one seemed more like a living space, he noticed as he drew his attention away from the armoury and toward the apartment they were now standing in.

It was at this point that the mysterious woman known as Kogo began explaining the current situation. Saying he didn’t take it so well…would be an understatement. He let out an abrupt, nervous laugh.

“This…this is some kind of practical joke, right? What did you put on those cards?” He asked, rather shakily. There was no way in hell he believed what he was being told right now. Somehow, he’d been manipulated into going to this shop - a smithy, with actual weapons, of all places. Then, once a group of likewise clueless individuals had been gathered, someone who looked like she was lost in her way to a re-enactment was telling them they had magic powers now and were all in danger. Safe to say he was feeling quite sceptical.

“Is this some kind of publicity stunt for LARPing? Or…” He appeared to think for a few moments, before his eyes widened and he seemed to shrink a little.

“You…you didn’t give us all Black Plague did you?” he asked in a very quiet voice. It was a ridiculous idea but he sounded serious nonetheless.

Cayson looked at the short girl who came in. Apparently she was the one leading everything. He didn't know nor cared. He just wanted this to all hurry so he could get back to finding Taja. She opened a jar of pickles and started to eat one. He listened, apparently he had magic. Maybe he could use his magic and find Taja. He was getting excited already, but then she mentioned that if the robot girl died, so would they. "So we also have to protect her?" He asked, mostly to himself. "I guess I could do that with my awesome moves."

She also mentioned that they would see things. He looked around and saw himself in a pickle suit. "Holy... that pickle suit is sick!" He walked over and looked the suit around. "I can dig this."

"So lady person, can I use my magic to find my love? She was one of the people who went miss." He asked her.

Sonea listened on to what Kogo was saying, her eye widening as she felt her mouth drop a few inches so it was agape. All of this seemed to go over her head in it's entirely. She shook her head a few times as she moved back and forth in a sort of pacing motion as she tried to take this all into account. When Kogo finished, she was still pacing with her hands behind her back.

"But this doesn't make sense. Magic doesn't make sense I mean...no one has magic. It's just some superstitious mumbo jumbo that ancient people made up to explain the unexplained. How can magic be the source of all of this?"

But her question was soon answered, the cat floated above her head and leaned forward so his eyes were looking into her own. There was a grin on his face so wide, it threatened to split his entire face in two before he floated away and landed gracefully on Kogo's head.

"She is right you know Sonea. There is a part of you that you cannot see, smell, feel or touch. A primal something that you dont even know you had. If I were you, I'd speak the following words: There is a cat floating about your head. He is fluffy, puffy and grinning with a toothy grin. He tells me of a place that no one has seen but a place I know. Yet I dont know what this place is...and I havent seen it since. A dog with fangs and claws and teeth of red with gleaming red eyes stalking a dead village. See what she says...You will love this Sonea I am sure"

While Sonea listened, she stared at a space above Kogo's head, dead eyed as if her eye showed her looking out a thousand miles away. She then blinked several times and rubbed her eye with one hand then let out a long groan of a sigh before she went to sit down in her favorite arm chair.

"There is a cat floating about your head. He is fluffy, puffy and grinning with a toothy grin. He tells me of a place that no one has seen but a place I know. Yet I don't know what this place is...and I haven't seen it since. A dog with fangs and claws and teeth of red with gleaming red eyes stalking a dead village. Does that ring any sort of bells with you?"

She asked, looking clearly skeptical as she reclined in her chair and gazed out towards the others, choosing not to say anything but clearly struggling to try and quantify this. While she did, she saw the cat now nestling itself in her lap and stared at Kogo with a wry chuckle

"Now lets see what might happen if this were the case Sonea. I think something in that noggin of yours might finally open up to you. Lets see if she takes the bait"

Her explanation went over about as she expected. Some protested that she was lying. One wanted to find a friend. Some others were still silent. Kogo nodded to the grey haired boy. "You could find her possibly...But I'm not gonna promise a thing~" She patted the young man on the head before switching her attention to the man with an eye patch. Before she could answer him, another man kept asking her off the wall questions. Kogo listened for a moment before grinning. "Hey, don't joke about the Black Plague! I lost a husband to that awful disease." She approached him. Obviously, he was on edge, but she gave him a reassuring tap on the chest. "LARPing isn't really my thing either...why pretend to cast magic when you can do the real thing?" She held out her hands with her palms turned up. In one hand, an orb of pure light formed. In the other, a ball of darkness formed. "Magic is just like the difference between darkness and light..." She trailed off, closing her hands. In another moment, she sidestepped to Felix's right side. "Or just like the difference between a man..." Her form shifted to be a masculine version of herself. Kogo then stepped over to Felix's left, changing into a a different woman entirely. "...and a woman." She licked her lip, settling back in front of Felix as herself once more. She thought she had done enough to prove her point.

The leader, Sonea, suddenly spoke up. Kogo noticed that she was looking above her and not directly at her. She listened to Sonea's next words and nodded. "A place no one knows...but I know very well." Kogo took out a small black book. One could feel the magical energy pouring out from it. The older woman held it close to her and looked at Sonea with a glint in her eye. "How about we take a field trip, children? Maybe a little danger will be fun..." With an outburst of light, the small group was transported to what seemed like an unnatural version of their home world. Even with them being rookies, they could all feel the danger they were in. "Welcome to the Other Side, where magic roams free and is unforgiving." Kogo turned and walked towards a broken doorway. "Let's go dog hunting."

Kogo’s attitude was unnerving to Felix, that was for sure. But when she approached him and two orbs of some kind of energy appeared in her hands, he let out a short yelp and leaped back, falling roughly onto a chair.

This didn’t stop her, though, and she continued to demonstrate this ‘magic’, changing her own appearance right in front of him. By now his face was simply blank, and he seemed to be staring miles ahead at nothing in particular. He didn’t appear to be paying attention when Sonea spoke up, apparently he was so shocked he had disconnected himself.

It wasn’t until he heard Kogo say something about danger, pulling out the small book, that he jolted upright. Something didn’t seem right here, it was if some kind of energy or signal was being emitted by it.

"Hey, now, what are you-" he piped up, but before he could finish, he saw a burst of light. This was followed by a sudden feeling of weightlessness cut short by landing painfully on his behind.

"Ah-ow." He muttered, struggling up. Upon opening his eyes, he guessed he must have hit himself pretty bad, since even though it hadn't been his head he could have sworn he saw two Sebastians. Looking around he saw that they were still in the same room, apparently. But…something was different. He looked behind him, and saw that the chair he’d been on was missing. Had she played some kind of practical joke? If so, he thought it was in poor taste. But looking around again, he saw that this place was definitely somewhere else entirely. They’d been transported somewhere? Somewhere dangerous, from the sound of it.

"Are you insane?! There are kids here!" He yelled, finding his voice again.

He watched his eye wide but his expression mute, as Kogo began tormenting Felix with her magic, though he kinda found it amusing, and terrifying, Sebastian’s Inner Demon reformed itself to watch Kogo’s antics.

Seb sat back, comfy, until she spoke the words ‘fieldtrip’ and ‘danger’ Sebastian almost got the words out but was too late he fell back into the couch having stood to confront Kogo, he shook off the disorientation and stood back up.

“What the hell did you do?” he glared at Kogo but beside him, now visible to everyone, the complete identical being, giggling like a murderer, clone/twin of Sebastian. “oh this is going to be fun, hope you’re up for a little life or death Sebby.” the demon grinned only for Sebastian to turn and clock it in the nose. To Sebastian’s dismay he’d feel the punch hit him, a pained yelp escaping Sebastian’s mouth followed by a string of curse words.
“Hunting dogs?, no i think we should get the fuck out of here”” Sebastian glared, moving his hand from his nose, his demon however removed its eyepatch, underneath were no scarred remains of an eye but it’s right eye was that of a beast, slit pupil, though beyond that normal colours.

“Now you’ll be able to tell us apart, if you must call me something, Wraith will do” the Inner demon pushed Sebastian a little and they both began to follow after Kogo.

Sonea listened with some slight amount of confusion. Field Trip? Danger?! She was about to protest when suddenly, her vision was overcome by a bright light and the vision before her eyes was shocking. They were still in her apartment but...it looked all wrong. There were holes in the walls, windows were missing or shattered on the ground. The chairs which she and the others were sitting in were gone or so shredded they were unusable. She gasped and stared at the destruction around her and covered her mouth with her hand. Stumbling, she followed after Kogo and went out into the shop.

Even here, the walls were adorned with her weapons and armors, but they seemed to have degraded so poorly that nothing was even remotely usable. The blades were rusted, brittle and full of holes from years of age and no maintenance. Even the armors which once gleamed with oils and countless hours of work were nothing but useless hunks of metal and scrap. Maybe something in them could be salvaged but not for now...

Sonea's mind was whipped up with a flurry of unfelt emotions: Overwhelming terror, dread and the overbearing desire to run away and hide. She reached behind her back under her shirt and pulled out the sacrificial dagger and held it in her right hand. She was breathing heavily, panic clearly evident on her face as she could swear this place knew what she was thinking and going through in her mind. She could hear herself screaming in pain? No...she couldnt feel pain. She couldnt ever feel...pain? She was terrified...as memories started to make themselves known in her mind.

At once as she was outside the apartment, the animal within caused her to bolt. Running...running as fast as she could from the group as terror washed over her senses. Animalistic fear and overwhelming dread gave such speed to her step that she didnt even know where she was running to. She just had to get away, she had to hide. She had to go somewhere where she could not be found. Somewhere safe...in this nightmarish land. She passed by several buildings, all burnt out and shattered. Books torn to shreds littered the streets and long gone scorch marks depicted people burned alive or eaten. The terror made her see things that werent there, her arm now gone and replaced by a bloody stump. The smell of fresh copper on her nose and her head and hair matted with blood. But something up ahead looked familiar, safe: The ruins of Town Hall. She bolted for it and slammed the door shut and brought up several ruined chairs to brace the door and hid underneath a desk.

She began to sob, hiding herself in a small ball underneath where she thought she was safest.

"Where am I? Why is this happening to me? I just want to go home...why can't I remember anything anymore?"

"Ahh Sonea...your finally starting to get the picture aren't you? No surprise really...only a very few manage to find the way but most don't recognize it when they do" came a voice as the Chesire Cat lay down before her. Big blue eyes stared up at her with a savage grin on his furry maw.

"You are where you once were so long ago. Back when you and I first met little Sonea. It was such a long time ago...and where it happened the first time round. Something dangerous lurks in these ruined halls. But you are going to need to get a grip on yourself and put a stiff upper lip if you want to survive"

"Survive? Survive what? This is just a dream...I am not losing my mind. I cant be going crazy. I just cant"

"Focus Sonea...if you do not then all will happen as it did again. Find the dog...before he finds you" He said and floated up and out of her sight. Sonea came out hesitantly under the desk and watched him float upon the wind then reappear infront of her.

"There you are Sonea...perhaps you might have the spine to fight not unlike the last time you were here. Mayhaps you might even realize what you are. I just hope that it wont be too late for you...or stay here and be eaten. Its no skin off of my whiskers if you do. All I can do is simply...give you a little...push" He said with an even more savage and bloodthirsty grin and a deep chuckle.

"The time has come to unleash what lurks inside that tamed heart. Time to unleash your inner beast and best do it soon. I am sure he has your scent"

As he said this, he would turn into a thin vapor and snaked his way up into Sonea's nose and disappeared from sight. But as she looked around, all she could really hear was Chesire's words echoing in her mind. Taunts and jeers and stabs of insults. Pushing her, mocking her, antagonizing her and putting even more mental strain on her mind. She puts her hands around her ears and tried her hardest to block out the constant beratement and pushed her way back outside. Images flashed in her mind as she held her dagger up and started to snarl and growl at every direction, feeling her sanity slip away bit by bit. She felt cornered...trapped and caged. If something was coming, she would rather die on her feet then hiding like a foolish child.

Hellhound


The night was certainly young and full of surprises. While beasts had been let loose in the real world, another beast had just awakened. It was time to hunt once again, and the Hellhound began to rise from it's current resting place. The random building it had taken residence in collapsed around it, causing the others to notice as the pieces of said building collapsed around it. The Hellhound shook it's body off briefly, a dark expression looming over as it looked around, letting out a low growl. It could smell something, intruders again!? But one of the scents was... Familiar to it. The Hellhound's eyes widened slightly, the growl slowly coming to a halt as it tried to recall where it knew this scent from.

"Oh, dear." The man in shades spoke out, suddenly poofing near the others as he cleared his throat. "Greetings to you all. I wasn't expecting visitors such as yourselves, but I can adapt. Welcome to the sporting event tonight, since you are here, you may as well help me with a little problem." The man in shades pointed to the Hellhound that stood unmoving now. "That Hellhound has been causing me problems lately, I can't exactly get around when a guardian of the dead keeps pushing people away from here. Do not worry, however, I have come prepared." The man in shades sat down in a chair that had appeared with him, grabbing hold of the sheet he made appear next to him as well, pulling it off to reveal... Weapons?

The Hellhound's body began to shake, it's stomach growling loudly as the thought of feeding upon a tasty meal made it take that wide sadistic grin it had before when last seen. Smoke began to rise up from the Hellhound's body, the Hellhound quietly moving through the ruined town and coming closer towards that tasty smell. Smoke began to rise from it's mouth as well, it's tongue carefully licking it's own lips as pieces of itself began to fall off of it's body. It knew people had come here before, but they had gotten away while it was distracted. This time, however, one of them seems to have cornered themselves away from the other tasty smells... It wasn't going to let this chance go away!

"Behold, a fine selection of enchanted weapons, made for a specific purpose to help you all out in the inevitable battles to come." The man in shades couldn't help but grin. "I offer these weapons to you all, free of charge. Well I say that, but really, the price is more to kill that naughty little hound. Should you manage to prevail against the beast, I shall give you a magnificent gift. Let us hope you all live long enough for me to explain by then." A loud roar coming from the distance caused the man in shades to look over casually in the hound's direction. "Looks like we're running short on time. Your friend is in clear danger, I suggest choosing your enchanted weapon now before the beast kills her. Oh, don't forget to bring one to her as well. Trust me when I say, she won't break it."

Indeed, the Hellhound couldn't hold itself back any longer, letting out a vicious roar as flames began to erupt all over it's body, burning itself as pieces of itself burned away in order to reveal... Something more. Something that had long been buried away when the thought of no longer catching it's favorite prey crossed it's mind. But now, a familiar scent had returned and it had caused a long forgotten joy to return to the beast's heart! The Hellhound took a new form, a form more fitting for combat rather than just merely hunting. This form that had long been suppressed began to radiate with heat around itself, the beast's body brightly glowing as the blue moon hung overhead on the dark green sky. The Hellhound couldn't wait any longer, another terrifying roar escaping it's menacing jaws as it prepared to attack!

Sebastian had followed Kogo, and soon enough Sonea ran past, he gritted his teeth and yelled after her “ARE YOU INSANE!? THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING, WOMAN!?” to Sebastian’s disdain Wraith found this hilarious, falling over and laughing.

“She’d make great bait, if she weren’t the leader” through his hysteric laughter he spoke before getting up, opening both his eyes, now the both of them reptilian and slitted, he grinned and stretched. “now get moving, else you all end up dead. And that’s just problematic”

Sebastian had turned to run after Sonea when the odd gentleman appeared, when he revealed the weapons, Sebastian didn’t think, he’d snatch up a sheathed longsword; Turn and sprint for it, on his way he heard the roar of their foe, and it made his skin crawl.

Sebastian’s rage seethed under his thoughts; in the back of his mind. Wraith knew it and felt it, and the demon grinned at the others. “what are you lot waiting for? If he dies who’s going to help scaredy cat? And then if she kicks the bucket, well i’m sure you know the outcome of that” with another laugh Wraith fades, drawn back to his victim watching from the comfort of Sebastian’s mind.

And soon enough he saw it, from the looks of it, the beast had slowed itself down for its final charge at Sonea, he kept up his sprint moving until he was between it and Sonea, staring down a flaming mutt, not what he expected, but it was pretty cool, right?. Sebastian just glanced back, he stepped forward, holding the enchanted longsword up.

“Well aren’t you an ugly bastard” Sebastian chuckled, heaving in air and smirked, he had to keep himself stable, and not give an inch, else it was going to take a mile. “you can’t win alone, let me help you out, all you have to do is give me something and i’ll give a fair trade.” the voice of the demon whispered in his head.“Shut it, I don’t need your backstabbing now.”

“No, this is genuine concern, you won’t win this fight, either you run for the others, or take this chance to prove you’re stronger, better than them” Sebastian grinded his teeth. “Fine take what you want, take what you will” Wraith’s smile couldn’t be bigger and he laughed.

“Perfect” a deep thin aura began to seep from Sebastian’s form, his skin hardening and scales formed across his body, with the shade of a deep dark purple, and his only eye shifting to that of a reptile, his hands becoming clawed and his knuckles spiked with boney protrusions. Painless was the shift, into a more draconic form; fitting of the blood.

Seb grinned and thought now i just look like a fucking comic book hero Wraith laughed and left the message in his mind the price is paid, your familiar has come,for now, and your dominion is yours. Just swing your blade and watch the destruction

Sebastian would do so channeling his dominion, the kinetic movements of swinging the blade would create vectors and Sebastian’s mind quickly realised this and honed onto it, with the vectors, created by the sword swing he’d smirk and then swing the sword again in a large vertical cutting motion, though this time the vector created would be launched at the hound, if it were to strike, the vector would sever a limb clean away or an ear from the rest of the beast.

The small familiar a large dog sized dragon, coloured in a mix of purples with a yellow eye, in some way it was like Sebastian, though the familiar hung back watching from a distance. Sebastian didn’t hear or feel the presence of wraith, and he had pretty cool new magic, hopefully the scales will disappear when he returns home.

Felix began to shake in fear, following the others into what had been the shop just minutes ago. This couldn’t be happening, he thought to himself, it was just too…it just couldn’t be real. It was like something out of a story. The sight of the building as well as all its merchandise now ruined didn’t help to put his mind at ease. Instinctively, he slapped himself across the face. Then after nothing changed, he did the same again, several times.

“This crap is really happening, isn’t it?” he whimpered, finally coming to the horrific realisation, just as Sonea made a sudden run for it. That couldn’t mean anything good was about to happen, now the group would be split up. Also, hadn’t Kogo said something about them all being linked in some way? If she got hurt, it would affect the rest of the group, if he recalled. “Oh no…” he groaned.

It was at this moment that the stranger in shades materialised before them, greeting them. Poor Felix was starting to feel light-headed at this point, and boy, did his fearful expression show it. Once the man had finished explaining his ‘little’ problem, he stepped gingerly over the threshold, now seeing the Hellhound. He froze. Several more seconds and he swung himself round, slamming himself against the inside of the wall. He was breathing very rapidly now.

It was a sharp pain that made him snap out of it - He looked down and saw some kind of creature biting his ankle. “gah!” he yelled, shaking the thing off frantically, although the sandy coloured pest simply ran up his leg, running circles around his face and clawing at him. Growling, he grabbed the thing and threw it off, rubbing his face only to see that there were no wounds or scratches to speak of. Still hurt like hell, though.

He glowered down at the weasel like creature, which seemed to be snickering at him. “What the bleeding hell is that thing?” he asked the stranger, pointing. “Another one of your pests?” But he didn’t have time to wait for an answer, as he watched Sebastian grab a longsword and run off.

Felix waited for a few seconds, trying to calm down. “OK,” he said, taking deep breaths. It would probably be wise to help make sure no-one dies, he thought. He took another breath, before grabbing a weapon, which appeared to be a bow, and sprinting for it.

He skidded to a halt after a few metres, dashed back, grabbed another weapon at random, nodded at the shades-wearing person. “Thanks,” he said, before hurrying off again. The creature scoffed mischievously before following suit.

Felix stopped in his tracks, staring wide eyed at the wolfish monstrosity before him. But now he saw there were more monsters fighting it! Great, he thought, just-wait, is that lizard thing wearing and eyepatch and wielding a-

“Sebastian?!” he yelled, “What the hell - Gah, nevermind, I'll ask later!” he ran toward the nearest sturdy looking building, the town hall. "This just gets weirder and weirder..." he muttered to himself. Sure enough, there Sonea was, now with an unexpectedly savage demeanor.

"Er...Sonea?" he asked, tentatively, holding out whatever other weapon he had taken, "Listen, er...I don't think any of us are really in the mood for dying right now, and I'm sure you're not either, so, maybe this will help. If we stay together, maybe we can get away from that...er, thing." he finished, nodding toward the hellhound.

Well, that all escalated quickly.

First, Sonea had a mental breakdown of sorts and ran right past her. Kogo didn't try to stop her. Then, the others started to flip their shit as a mysterious man with sunglasses on appeared. Surprisingly, the old woman couldn't place him anywhere in her memory. She sort of stood off and watched the situation unfold with an amused smile. Enchanted weapons, ey? Not too strange, but still an odd occurrence for those you've never met before. Shortly after, the roar of the hellhound reached her ears. She assumed it was probably about time she left the building and saw for herself exactly what was going on. Some of the others already had. As she walked, she studied the man in shades. Kogo was completely silent as she passed, burning the man's face into her brain. She would not forget him any time soon.

Kogo made her way to the clearing just in time to see Sebastian's temporary transformation. Ah, this was interesting! "Sebastian! Use that form to your advantage!" She called out to the boy. She could see his vectors from here, but the hound seemed to have other plans. Charging a beam of light in her right hand, Kogo quickly shot it upwards, striking the beast directly in the eye. It howled with some pain, turning its' head towards her. Sebastian's vector cut its' ear off near perfectly, causing more pain. "Keep it up! You're doing great!" Kogo yelled as she shot another few beams at the dog, trying to keep its attention. She saw Sonea stumble out of a building farther off. Felix was trying to help Sonea. The poor man was terrified. "Felix! Get her out of here! She dies, you all die!" Her voice was like that of a general commanding his or her troops. It was down right intimidating to the group, that's for sure.

Suddenly, smoke started pouring into the clearing. The source was not the hell hound. Kogo looked over to the building Felix and Sonea were in front of and rolled her eyes hard. The building was starting to become overtaken by fire. At first, Kogo thought that the hell hound had done it, but she caught a glimpse of red in the trees. God dammit. A child like giggle could be heard fading away. "You'll pay for that later, you little brat!" Kogo whispered to herself. She glanced over at Sonea and Felix for a moment, hoping they would realize the new danger behind them. Her main focus was to distract the hell hound long enough for all of the Black recruits to gain their Dominions, but fate may have other plans. The hell hound fully had its' eye on her and it licked its' lips in anticipation of a new meal...or so it thought. Holding back most of her magic, she shot another beam of magic directly into the dog's chest, sending it back several feet. It was staggered for a moment. "Sebastian! Hit it now! You can do it!" Kogo called to him once again. Hopefully this opportunity would not be wasted.
