He carries a katana with a scabbard, he chooses to carry it in his hand as opposed around his waist. In his true form, his significantly larger than his human form. Further he gains black armor that pulsates with blue light, the veins of blue oscillate down to a heavy pair of gauntlets on his fists, and greaves on his shins and feet, he uses these for powerful hand to hand combat when he feels the opponent cannot match him as a swordsman. He also gains a helm that emulates a demonic head, with forward swept horns that veined with red and blue. In this form he carries an oversized zweihänder which pulsates with blue energy in place of his katana. He wields it effortlessly.

Abilities:
Transformation - He can transform between his human and true forms
Human form - In his human form he has increased speed and strength compared to real humans. He is so fast that he can literally catch bullets with his katana. Furthermore he can slice his blade so fast it sends a razor sharp blade of air at enemies to distant to attack up close.
True form - He has embraced his dark heritage giving this form extreme power. He is significantly slower in this form, being the speed of a standard human, although he can wield his zweihänder as a normal person would a longsword. He can charge the sword with demonic energy giving his attacks a magical effect. His increased power gives him the ability to teleport short distances, giving him the ability to close the gap between enemies to far to attack with his sword.
He is an expert swordsman

Equipment:
Yamato - The katana that was passed down to him by his father. It is said to be the sharpest sword in existence. Image


Personality:
Victor is calm, cool, and collected. He is quiet and prefers swords over guns, since he considers firearms unworthy of a "true warrior". However, his quietness is not due to a lack of self-confidence; it is because he never shows fear for anything. Interestingly, despite his cold persona and ruthlessness he is an honorable warrior (aside from his dislike of guns in general), he despises fighting dirty and he refuses to attack his opponents from behind. Unlike most "angels" he chooses to embrace his dark heritage, drawing strength from who he is. He does fight for the same cause as the Angels, the destruction of demonkind, but he does so not to protect humans, but for his own selfish needs. He almost never fights in his true form, choosing instead to challenge himself in his human form. If he fights you in his true form, consider a great honor as he feels you an opponent worthy of fighting on equal grounds. His honor is the most important thing to him besides avenging his family and he will never battle in a dishonorable fashion.

History:
Victor's father was a general in the demon army at the time of the human uprising. Victor's father embraced humanity, leading the humans in battle against the demons. Although they were successful, the battle cost him his life. He left two mementos for his sons, Yamato, Victor's katana, and Muhon, a longsword that was given to Victor's brother. A few years after his father's death, Victor's mother and brother were attacked and killed by demon's seeking revenge for their defeat at the hands of his father. Victor survived the onslaught and was left with only Yamato, the location of Muhon is unknown. After the death of his family Victor trained day and night to get strong enough to wipe out every demon on the planet. He even went so far as accept his dark heritage as a part of himself (which resulted in the drastic change in fighting styles between his human and true forms). He hopes to become as strong if not stronger than his father and trains to reach that goal constantly. He is searching for Muhon, his brother's sword in the hopes that it will increase his strength.

Image
Muhon, his brother's lost sword

Extra Fluff/Other: He does not seek out demons unless he finds out about a particularly strong one nearby who might have information about high ranking demons, or the location of Muhon. He does however accept requests from humans or "angels" who need someone of his expertise to eliminate demons, he claims it's his occupation, but rarely charges for his services.

So begins...

Victor took a deep breath, he always enjoyed the night air. The breath was his break and he quickly returned to his training regiment. He sprinted from rooftop to rooftop at full speed, anyone who looked at him would have seen nothing but a blur. But during the middle of his run he heard a woman scream, ever the gentlemen, Victor went to take a look at what was going on. By the time he got there the woman was unconscious and a man was running away with a bloody nose. Before he could check on the girl he saw a man who appeared young but had gray hair, run down the street and to the girl, attempting to awaken her. He felt that the woman was safe with this new man but he would be back to this place in the morning to check on her. silly humans always causing trouble for themselves he thinks to himself. His training has been interrupted and he can't return now, so he takes yet another inhale of the night air and decides to relax the rest of the night. Spending a good chunk of it in a high class bar in the nicer side of town, drinking a nice well aged scotch, but not drinking too much and ensuring his reflexes weren't dulled. After his scotch he heads home. Home was a small but comfortable apartment in one of the nicer parts of town. Every room was filled with books on demon's and their history with humans. Any floor, table and shelf space that wasn't filled by books, was filled by his notes. He was close to finding his brother's sword, he could feel it. It was in the city, but as far as where to look he didn't have the slightest clue. Maybe it's time to meet up with the Angels and work with them for a while again he thinks, the work they would give him would give him an excuse to search city, as well as possibly find some demons to interrogate. After making his decision he heads to bed awaking early in the morning to prepare to find the Angels.

Victor wakes up the next morning as the sun was rising, as was his custom, he checks the clock and it read 5:46. He showers and dresses in his standard clothes. He spends two hours on the roof of his apartment building practicing his swordsmanship. He uses his demonic powers to summon 4 shadows of himself to combat against. These shadows are as fast and skilled with a sword as he is. The shadows have no substance and thus would do neither him nor anyone else and real harm if their attacks connect but they make great practice dummies. The four shadows surround him and await his first move. He unsheathes Yamato holding the scabbard in his left hand. He rushes the shadow in front of him and the two exchange and the two match each other's movements perfectly, countering each other's moves flawlessly, while he was preoccupied with the first shadow the other three close in on him but the second they strike Victor jumps high into the air backflipping over them. As he lands he throws his cloak to ground. The four shadows turn to him and begin to rush towards him as they do he slashes the air at hypersonic speeds four times sending a blade of hyper compressed air at each of them. Two of the shadows attempt to jump to avoid the blades but they are each hit center mass and cut in half before dissipating into nothingness. The other two shadows rolled forward dodging the attack and spring towards him. The reach him and engage him in swordplay. He parries each of their attacks, defending one with his sword and the other it's scabbard. This continues for quite some time, Victor realizes he stuck on the defensive and knows that in two on one combat with himself he cannot win, he has to get back on the offensive he counterattacks with a strong strike at each opponent. They are staggered and step back, now is his chance. He rushes one slicing it three times from its chest down to its thighs, it separates into for pieces before disappearing. By this time the last shadow has recovered and rushes him, he deflects the blow from behind with Yamato and spins to face his adversary. He focuses on form and technique working the five forms of Iaido, He knows two equal practitioners of Iiado can combat for hours without a victor so he needs to get creative. He tries irregular combinations of traditional techniques to no avail the shadow parries or counters every movement he makes. Finally he switches styles to Kendo traditional two handed fighting with the katana. The shadow attempts to counter with Iaido using the scabbard to deflect attacks and slashing with the katana. Victor should be at a disadvantage but his precision and speed quickly overcome the shadow. He parries an attack with his katana and deflects the scabbard out of its hand. Finally he slices the shadow from shoulder to hip, bisecting it as it evaporates. Content with his training he sheaths Yamato and replaces his cloak.

He makes his way to a small gym not far from where he lives. As he enters he smiles at a woman diligently working a heavy bag in the front of the gym. He makes his way back to the locker rooms where he changes out of his nice clothes. He removes his boots and puts on a pair of blue shorts that are have a gold line running down the outside of his legs, matching the colors of his cloak. He locks his clothes and Yamato in his locker. He tapes his hands, forearms, shins and feet, the tape resembles the gauntlets and greaves he wears in his true form. He then moves to a private training room in the back of the gym. The room is smaller then the open room most people train in, approximately nine by nine feet. There is no door on the room, it's not so much private as it is separated. The room is empty save for eight heavy bags arranged in a square. The owner of the gym set this room up at Victor request, and received a handsome sum for his efforts. Victor walked to the center of the square and takes a deep breath. He begins attacking all eight targets, alternating between punches and kicks focusing on hitting them powerfully at the cost of speed. In his true form this type of combat comes naturally but now it is quite strenuous. This style of fighting is one he isn't used to in this body, but with the way humans react to demons he needs to master it without transforming to avoid drawing attention to himself. Most beings would simply use their swordsmanship in a one on one battle, but he is honor bound to fighting fair so if his opponent is without weapon he wants to be able to fight hand to hand. He feels like he has been improving and wants to start sparring with skilled fighters in the gym, and he thinks he knows who. After a short training session he enters the main gym and sees the woman he noticed earlier, still training on the heavy bag. He joins the small group that has formed in the gym to watch her train. He takes note of her technique, she is clearly very skilled, more skilled than he is. She will do just fine he thinks to himself as he watches her train, the crowd dissipates after a while but he remains watching her train until she finishes.

As the woman finished training she locked eyes with Victor, he smiled at her as she asked him "Can I help you with something?" The woman was cautious but not afraid, as she takes a drink of her water bottle. Victor continued to smile, she was polite, and friendly, something he wasn't expecting from someone who was so fierce in combat. "Actually I believe you can. I was looking for a sparring partner, and it was quite clear by your demonstration that you are one of the most skilled combatants at the gym, and I like a challenge. Victor Evangelo at your service." He responds, there was a regal inflection to his voice that was hard to ignore, even standing here in workout clothes he commanded authority, and yet his tone was filled with respect and admiration for her skill. He extends his hand to her, his motions fluid and noble. His hair had fallen down over his face during his workout, he runs his hand through his hair, slicking it back and spiking it to its usual style, flashing her another smile as he awaited her reply. There is something familiar about this woman, her emerald eyes remind me of someone I knew years ago, I don't know what happened to her. He recalls a woman he worked with when demon hunting was a little more common and accepted, last he heard the woman and her husband were expecting a child, could this be that child? He couldn't know for sure, but he was certainly intrigued.

Arlette was a bit taken aback when he announced he wanted her to be a sparring partner. Her cheeks flushed pink when he complimented her skill, and extended his hand to her, introducing himself. Victor, what a befitting name. she thought, studying his large hand for a moment before grasping it with her own petite ivory one. His hand was warm and enveloped hers completely, making her feel tiny in comparison. She pictured sparring with him for a split second, imagining clashing fists and feet in a match of skill. She bit her lip lightly, perhaps a little intimidated, but shook it off quickly.
"Nice to meet you, Victor. I'm Arlette, Arlette Cole." She said, offering a smile. Perhaps he was a decent man. He seemed to be thus far, anyway. "If it's a sparring partner you wish for, then I accept your offer! I haven't had a match with someone in quite some time, and I think you will prove to be a challenge." Her smile turned into a chesire grin and her green eyes sparkled with excitement. She didn't interact with too many people in general, so it might be a nice change in her life to spend some time with humans, instead of books, punching bags and alcohol. She studied his appearance further, biting her lip like she usually did while thinking. He wasn't extremely tall, perhaps a little over average, but his eyes were striking blue, and his hair even more so in it's white color and spiked style. She hadn't seen anyone like him. Arlette blushed, realizing she was staring and hoped he hadn't caught her, although he probably had.

Arlette's eyes wandered to the entrance of the GYM, where she saw another man enter. He also had a certain commanding aura around him, and his eyes were blood red. She immediately thought of the man from last night. How strange. Two men with blood red eyes. She wondered if there was any sort of connection. Although, it seemed unlikely. This man had a more cruel appearance, and the other seemed gentle.

"Nice to meet you, Victor. I'm Arlette, Arlette Cole." Arlette introduced herself with a smile. "If it's a sparring partner you wish for, then I accept your offer! I haven't had a match with someone in quite some time, and I think you will prove to be a challenge." Her eyes began to twinkle with excitement at the thought of sparring. He smiled back as he noticed that had been staring at him, despite his regal and authoritative attitude, he did enjoy it when other's appreciated his appearance, as soon as he noticed her staring she began to blush, Victor chuckled slightly. Before he could say anything he felt a strange presence, he turns around and notices a man with red eyes walk in Walking around in daylight? I see I'm not the only demon here. I hope things don't turn sour, I wouldn't want to scare away my new friend. he thinks dismissing the man and turning back to Arlette "Seeing as we both just finished workouts, now probably isn't the best time for a match, perhaps you can give me your telephone number and we can arrange a time that that fits for both of us? Oh and please feel free to use my private training room in the back if you are so inclined, it's a nice way to work on combating multiple opponents, although nothing beats the real thing." He said with a smile and a wink so quick it would have been almost impossible to see.

#, as written by Ulfunn
Jon noticed him Victor who was young in demon standards and so willing to hunt and kill his own kind it gave him a sick feeling in his stomach. Scum,he betrays not only Devil kind but Angels as well I should kill him and devour his soul right now. talking out loud to himself in a whisper "But that would be stupid not only will that bring every Hunter in this area in a cleansing frenzy but send a kill squad from the Heads as well." so instead he stood in the corner watching Victor the young-ling talk to the female human. Keep himself from doing something rash he started to think about the book and decoding the secret meanings it had so far he found the section where he can find out what items need to be found or created for the artifact that will regain the demons power.

Arlette hesitated a bit, chewing her lip, Victor was quickly realizing it was a nervous habit of hers, but before he could say something to calm her down she smiled brightly "Thanks for your offer, I appreciate it. I just might take you up on that private room. It will come in handy when the Gym is full. Oh, right! My Number...umm..." she began to look around frantically eventually finding a pen and taking the holder from her coffee. "Here, sorry it's on a coffee holder..." she said hesitantly while holding it out for Victor. He takes it and slowly begins to smile, then he burst out laughing loudly "Oh I'm so sorry" he said failing to contain his laughter, he quickly regained his regal composure "There was no need to apologize, I didn't expect there to be anything to write it on, next time you could have just put the number in my cellular phone." he said with a smile, and a slightly less than subtle wink. "I get up before dawn most mornings and work out, and then come here to cool down, so I'm sure we'll run into each other quite regularly." He says still smiling, as he returns to the locker room. When he gets to his locker he quickly re-dresses, and checks Yamato's sharpness with his thumb always perfect he thinks with a smile, letting his thumb bleed. He returns to the gym to find that Arlette is still there, he walks up to her "Here, know you have my information as well." he said handing her a card that read:

"Victor Evangelo
A simple request and your needs are fulfilled"

followed by his home and cell numbers. He smiled at her again, "Well I should be off, lots of things to do" he said bowing to her as he leaves the building. He quickly makes his way to back to his home, he takes a shower, and begins going through his reconnaissance notes of devils he has found in the area.I'm positive I've seen that man before. The more he searched the less he found, he could not find anything in his notes anywhere. "DAMMIT!" He swore to himself. "I'm going to have to talk with that overly righteous excuse for a demon. As much as I hate him, he has all of the information."

Victor took a breathe and relaxed, picking up and reorganizing his notes and placing them safely away. He glances at the clock and it reads 2:30 Well know is as good a time as ever. He makes his way to Kenneth's apartment building and knocks on the door. Upon being let in he looks at the physically non imposing man standing before him, Victor knew from experience that Kenneth was a much better opponent than he appeared. I need to tread lightly here, we aren't on the best of terms at the moment . "Kenneth I was hoping you had some information my reconnaissance notes were lacking." He said confidently, "There is a demon I ran into today that I don't know anything about. His human form is a relatively tall man, with blood red eyes and black hair. He also seems to have an aura about him that spreads uneasiness. Any information you have about this demon would be appreciated, I would like to be prepared should he choose to start something." Victor hoped that Kenneth was in a good mood and would be willing to share the information Should I tell him about the girl? I can't be sure but if that demon is following her it could cause me trouble, then again I don't know for sure, I'll keep it to myself for now. Victor waits calmly and patiently as he awaits Kenneth's reply.

Contrary to popular belief, Kenneth had spent most of his day lounging around his apartment and futzing around with his newest toy, a laptop computer. Most of Kenneth's "friends", acquaintances really, would call him almost eternally active. Which was true any other day, Kenneth usually spent most of his time training his hand to hand combat, or practicing his magic, though most of his "friends" didn't know he did magic. They were all human. Kenneth spent most of his time in complete disguise, attempting to hide within the sea of humans while protecting them from the Devilish scum that wanted nothing more than to wipe them out. For justice, for peace, for his own personal honor. He had to, so that one day, he could finally find his parents.

While Kenneth was busy transferring the contents of his bingo book to the laptop, in order to protect them, he spent his day lazing about and doing nothing for a change. He bummed around his well furnished upper mid-class apartment, typing all the while. He had just managed to finish the section on the B's after the A's when a there was the sound of a knock on his door. Kenneth quickly picked up his bingo book, locked down his laptop, and walked over to the door. Sure enough, it was Victor. He'd called him earlier to tell him he was on his way. "Yeah, come in." Kenneth said curtly. Victor walked in silently, sizing him up as he walked past. Kenneth smirked. The pair weren't exactly friendly. Sure they were respectful to each other, they almost had to be, but there was no way Kenneth was going to go out of his way for Victor. That's when Victor spoke up, "Kenneth I was hoping you had some information my reconnaissance notes were lacking." He said confidently, "There is a demon I ran into today that I don't know anything about. His human form is a relatively tall man, with blood red eyes and black hair. He also seems to have an aura about him that spreads uneasiness. Any information you have about this demon would be appreciated, I would like to be prepared should he choose to start something." Kenneth nodded, "Sounds familiar, lemme check my book." Kenneth walked over to his couch and sat down. "Yeah, Jon's his name. Demon, like you said. Red eyes, black hair, carries a scythe, and stronger than most humans. That's all my bingo book's got. Why? You go looking for trouble again?" Kenneth asked with a smirk. "Anything you need my help with? I've been lazing about all day, I could use some action." Kenneth probed. Usually, Victor was always the first to find something tasty, and Kenneth was tired of bumming around all day. Kenneth tried to play it off like it wasn't a big deal, like Victor was being way too nosy and antsy, but he knew that Victor was just trying to be prudent, he was usually pretty good about stuff like that.

Kenneth proceed to give Victor the information he asked for, not too much, but then again Victor was aware that Kenneth's book didn't have all the answers. He received enough information to be prepared. "Anything you need my help with? I've been lazing about all day, I could use some action." Kenneth asked jumping at the chance to do something. "Well I'm gonna let him be for a while, if I find him near Arlette again then something might go down. For now, I think I'll either spend some more time training, or maybe some research on some hunter's I used to know, actually would you have any information on them?" He asked, but Kenneth simply shook his head, it was clear he had no information. "Darn, well I guess I'll have to look through records the old fashioned way then. Care to join me?" Victor ran his hand through his hair, something he does quite regularly. Maybe if I give him something to do, he'll quit complaining.

When Victor asked him about hunters, Kenneth only shook his head. His Bingo Book only had rudimentary information on Devils and Angels, while Kenneth was being sent more information on them everyday, he only knew so much. "Darn, well I guess I'll have to look through records the old fashioned way then. Care to join me?" Victor offered, running his hand through his hair. Kenneth shook his head again, then flopped dramatically onto the couch. "Blegh! I've been doing 'homework' all day, I wanna play!" Kenneth mock whined, trying to sound as juvenile as he possibly could. "Well, if you wanna pour through some old books, be my guest, I'm headed out." Kenneth stood, grabbing a brown flak jacket to throw on over his white shirt and tossing on some old school tennis shoes. Kenneth grabbed his bingo book and cell phone, slid on his bracelet, double checked his seals, and headed over to the door. "After you," Kenneth said. "I'm heading out, and I can't have you snooping around in my place while I'm out. I've got my cell so if you need me, you know where to reach me." Kenneth stood aside as Victor walked out of his apartment. Kenneth walked down to the street with him silently, before waving and turning the other direction. Surely, there was something for Kenneth to get into out and about town. It had been a long time since he last went devil hunting, maybe he could go train at the gym. The city was open to him, and he wasn't going to give up this first real chance to delve into it's depths.

As Kenneth was walking through the downtown, he felt a horrendous presence in an adjoining alleyway, definitely demonic. Kenneth snapped his head to the side, sighting an unusual shadow, it was the middle of the day, why would there be shadows like that? Kenneth trotted down the alley, taking note as the sun slid over one of the buildings, and the shadow clinging to the walls of the place. Something nasty was going on in here. That's when he heard it, the sound of screams. They were muffled, but it definitely there. It was a man and a woman, a pair of them. Kenneth poured himself through the alley, racing down into its depths. Finally he made it. However, the second he got there, Kenneth ducked behind a dumpster. There were seven of them, beating on the man while the woman tried to escape the eighth. Growling in disgust, Kenneth brought his hand up to his face. "Time to go," he said. Standing, Kenneth swiped the hand down to his side, channeling his raw, demonic might into the bracelet on his wrist. The bracelet shown for a moment with bright blue light. A gold and teal bow sprang into existence, a blazing little fire shining at the arrow rest. "Alrighty boys, that's enough of that." Kenneth said. For a moment, he caught their attention, they stopped beating the man. Then they just laughed, returning to their previous activity. Kenneth began to smolder with anger. Raising his bow, Kenneth drew back on the non-existent string, an arrow of fire forming from his hand. "I'm not someone to ignore." Kenneth said, taking aim. He released, and a flash of light blazed through the air, piercing the offender's head. The thug collapsed, dead before he hit the ground. Kenneth lowered his bow. "Oi! I said that's enough!" Kenneth yelled, returning the bow to a bracelet. "You can all leave right now, and I'll let you go home, or you can stick around and end up like your buddy there." Unfortunately, the would-be muggers had different plans. They rushed him, trying to count on their numbers to overpower him. Kenneth once again filled his bracelet with power, and a golden glaive with a teal gem in the center of the blade sprung into being, sharp as a razor and bright as daylight. Setting himself against the charge, Kenneth gripped the staff of his glaive. As the first attacker got into striking distance, Kenneth lashed out with his glaive, cleanly slicing off his head. Kenneth spun the blade halfway around his body, then whipped it back around himself, slicing the next attacker in half. Raising the glaive above his head and spinning rapidly, Kenneth stepped back and set the glaive for a thrust. Kenneth sunk deep into his stance and speared the next thug, skewering him like a bloody marshmallow. Kenneth breathed out deeply, and pulled his glaive out of the thug with a sickening squelch. He wasn't tired at all, he was mostly just disappointed. There was blood splattered everywhere, but it wasn't because Kenneth fought sloppily, it was mostly that these... worms, infuriated him into striking much too harshly. He had to teach them a lesson, the hard way. How dare they pick on the meek. How dare they trample the innocent. "You damn rats, you trash. How dare you!" At that, Kenneth charged, finishing off the remaining thugs with cruel and horrible efficiency.

At this point, it wasn't about protecting the people who they'd assailed, it was about giving the filth in this part of the city an example of what was to come. Kenneth was intent on purging the city, and he'd do it one piece of trash at a time. Finally finished, his body soaked in thick red blood, Kenneth walked over to the victims. He smiled, despite the fact that he was covered in blood. "If you are weak, this will only happen again. I can't be there to protect you every time. Next time, if you're not strong enough, you could die." Kenneth said, deadly serious. The pair only nodded. "Now," Kenneth said, waving his hand in front of their eyes, quickly casting a spell to remove any memories they might have about magic. "Go home, leave this place now." Kenneth said, standing up and watching them leave. Once more he raised his hand, and cast a spell to remove the blood from his body. He managed to get rid of the red and the stains, but some of the smell remained. He needed to get out of there fast or else he'd start drawing attention to himself. Kenneth took off down the alleyway, quickly making his way to the local mall to mask the smell with the free cologne samples that those incredibly annoying and unnervingly perky kiosk venders sprayed in your face even when you didn't want the sample. Once he made it to one such kiosk, he quickly sprayed himself with something that smelled nice, would cover the smell, but wasn't too overpowering. Realxing a little, Kenneth actually decided that he might as well stick around and see what there was to see, he hadn't been to the mall in quite some time.

Victor left Kenneth's apartment glad that the white demon had decided not to help him with his research. He elects not to go back to his apartment before heading to the library. On his way passes a dark alley. Things look a little off so he decides to check it out. Upon entering the alley he found torn clothes all over the place, and dried blood everywhere. Something incredibly violent had gone down here. This feels like Kenneth, but he would never leave this much blood, he's not this sloppy. I'll have to question him later he thinks before making his way to the library.

Victor arrives at the library and makes his way to the microfilm viewers. He gathers all news articles relating to Demon Hunters from a five year period twenty years ago. He spent hours searching through stories, some including himself, some hunters he worked with and others he had only heard of. After about three hours of searching he finds a series of articles about a husband and wife hunting team. The wife looked exactly like Arlette These are the hunter's I'm looking for He writes down their names and takes them to one of the librarians. She was an attractive enough woman, but nothing extraordinary. "Excuse me miss, I'm looking for more information on these people, can you help me find some records of them" He asks with a smile that she could not ignore. "Of course, just a moment" She says and heads goes to a computer and begins searching. After a few minutes typing away she looks up "Just a moment I'll go gather these for you" She says heading off into the library, after a short while she returns with a large stack of records, "I should have just about everything you need here, if you need anything else just let me know" she said smiling back at him. "Thank you, you're wonderful" he thanked her. He takes the materials to a table and spreads them out. He looks through different things, housing records, college yearbooks, interviews in hunter magazines, this and that. Finally he finds a census records from twenty two years ago. The hunters had a child named Arlette So she is related to them, I wonder if she knows, I'll bring it up during our sparring match he decides. He regathers all the materials and walks up to the librarian and returns the materials to her "Thank you very much for your help" he says to her. He makes his way back to his apartment. "I do believe I have earned a nice evening" he says to no in particular. He changes his clothes, it is the same outfit he was wearing earlier, but fresh. Following changing he spends some time just relaxing in his apartment. After a few hours he heads to the bar he was at the night before, sits down and orders Jim Beam's Devil's Cut on the rocks. He sits there enjoying his whiskey and the nice upscale bar.

Alexander stayed at the bar he didn't drink much himself he mainly stayed there looking through his mind on old information on his main target the soul thief or has common myth calls him Death. He had only one thing to complain about being a Hunter is that research on older demons really suck.there were never any known names for these demons only areas they have been spotted and code names. Alexander sighed with minor frustration "God damn nothing even with some members working with angels finding anything out is such a pain in the ass!" he heard Richard in his mind say in a straight tone "A demon entered the bar he is sitting nearby. This one is young around two hundred years old maybe a little older the vibe seems to be Angel to me." "Whats the best course of action Rich?" "Questioning and if you don't like it attack and hopefully kill him." Alexander gave a tired sigh "Goddamn does the word Peaceful transaction mean anything to you Rich?" "No only Destruction and Genocide come even close to that." Alexander made a face to his necklace "Those don't even come close to that!" Alexander looked around the bar and almost immediately found the demon walking over to the demon Alexander was making hand motions casting high magic to increase his abilities as a human by casting the spell he could now increase and decrease his strength,and speed the spell only had use for a human though the spell only worked to give the caster demon like abilities. Sitting next to the demon "So tell me what is one of your kind doing here? Don't most of you go to some warehouse to drink and socialize?" Alexander really didn't like demons of any kind it was easy for some Hunters to work with a demon because those Hunters never seen a demon tear a human in half or worse.

Victor watched as a young man walks up to him "So tell me what is one of your kind doing here? Don't most of you go to some warehouse to drink and socialize?". The young man clearly hated demons, and appeared to be a hunter. Victor took a breath and a minute before responding. "Young man, what makes you assume that someone such as myself, would want to spend my time in those horrid disgusting places and drink that filth with those lowly beasts?" his tone was neither angry nor upset, but rather came off noble and informative. "I am here as a peaceful patron enjoying a nice glass of bourbon after a long day. You clearly don't frequent places of class such as this, or you would have seen me before. Now would like to ask your question again and show me the respect I deserve?" He explained, his comments did not sound threatening despite the words that were said, in fact they sounded calm and peaceful as if he were simply telling the man about his day. Victor takes a drink from his glass, sets it down on the bar and places a hand in the pocket of his cloak, in the pocket he grabs his phone and sends a text message to Kenneth, it read; 'Come to the bar, the usual one. I might have some fun for you'. After sending the message he takes his hand out of his pocket and grabs his drink once more. "Now please, introduce yourself. Might I be of assistance to you, or are you bothering me simply because of what I am?" he asks looking at the man with a stern look on his face.

Alexander shrugged "Your very uptight you know that? Ah who can blame you a lower race like mine overpopulates your world and forces your kind into hiding themselves for how long now? Close to two thousand years." Alexander didn't want to really get in a fight with this demon he was feeling a bit lazy. Jon looked at demon again "I am a Hunter and that's the only name you need to call me. As for what I want from you is do you know of a demon who is of the Devil faction he is a large player within this city the only description we have of him is he uses a scythe. Names are hard to come by in my line of work. Mainly because targets don't last very long." Alexander ordered another whiskey and paid for it drinking it quickly one thing he never was shy about was his bad sense of manners in his profession manners were rarely needed. Alexander pulled out a hand rolled cigarette "Do they allow smoking?"

Victor sat for a minute listening to this hunter spout rude comments. "Do they allow smoking?" he asked. "I would prefer it if you kept that toxicity away from me." Victor stated curtly. He thought for a minute "I may or may not have the information you desire, but based upon the conclusion's I draw from your actions here, I doubt you have the ability to handle the demon you describe. Further more you have done nothing to show that you can be trusted." Victor grabs his drink and takes another sip. He signals the bar tender, hands him a large bill "This is for both our tabs, keep any extra." He turns to the hunter, "If there is nothing more we need to discuss, I shall be taking my leave." And with that Victor stood from his seat and left the bar. When he got outside he picked up his phone and began to look through his contacts, he decided to call Kenneth, whom he knew had gone out to find something to do. The phone rings a couple times and then he answers. "Kenneth, how are you, I grew tired of the bar. Another hunter being disrespectful, you know how it goes. Anyway I'm feeling particularly social, have you found anything interesting to pass the time?" As he asks he finds himself thinking of the woman he met this morning Why does she feel the need to train so hard, most humans that aren't hunters, and I didn't feel she was a hunter because she didn't recognize what I was, don't train in combat like that. They don't take it that seriously. He begins to walk towards down town, as he listens to Kenneth's reply.

As Kenneth strolled through the mall, he bumped absentmindedly into different people. He wasn't watching where he was going at all, he was mostly people watching, trying to sniff out demons and make sure that no one was causing a scene. He was positive that the scene he'd caused earlier was garnering him unwanted attention. It wasn't that he couldn't handle it, it was mostly that there were civilians here. How could he protect them without changing? Trick question, he couldn't. Regardless, while Kenneth was strolling around, highly strung and jumpy, he bumped into a golden haired woman near a jewelry store. "Oops," Kenneth said, "I'm sorry, I wasn't watching where I was going, you ok?" Kenneth asked.

That was when he did his double take. The woman was gorgeous, but it wasn't just her outward beauty that intrigued him, though it did distract him, causing him to blush slightly. Kenneth shook his head and did an actual double take, before looking back at her again. There it was! It was her eyes! They were a very interesting, very bright, shade of green. A very specific shade. Where had he seen that exact color of green before? Kenneth pondered it for a moment, lost in her perfectly green eyes. The way they reflected the light was so familiar, they sparkled like emeralds in the light. Try as he might, Kenneth just couldn't grasp it. The longer he stared at them, the more familiar they seemed. It took Kenneth a moment to realize he was gripping her tightly by the shoulders and staring deeply, almost mesmerized, into her eyes. He'd been doing so for a good long while. Kenneth immediately let go and nervously rubbed the back of his neck. "I'm really sorry, I'm not myself today. I just thought that I recognized the color of your eyes, and it made me wonder. Blegh, this is such an odd meeting, I'll just get out of your hair, I'm so sorry for the trouble." Kenneth blushed bright red. Here he'd met a very pretty girl, and just like that he was sure he'd scared her away. Man that was awkward... Just then his phone rang. It was Victor. "Ahh, hey Victor, what's going on?" He paused, there was the sound of a male voice on the other end. A noble, rich voice. "Fun you say? Nah, I'm hanging around the mall, just creeped the hell out of a blonde girl with green eyes." Another pause. "You know her? Gimme a second." Kenneth turned around, and grabbed the girl by the shoulder and spun her around. "I know this is weird, and I'm very sorry for any discomfort I may have caused you, but a friend of mine, Victor Evangelo, says he wants to speak to you. Do you know him?" As awkward as he was, Kenneth wasn't going to bother her if she didn't know him, and he had no intentions of harming or embarrassing the girl he'd just so awkwardly bumped into.

Arlette was lost in her thoughts of her Parents, smiling to herself. She didn't usually think too much about the past, but it was nice to think of the happy times. She missed them dearly. It was 6 years ago next month that they both passed away in that terrible car accident...she was only 17 at the time. She was lucky to have had such amazing parents, but 17 years just didn't seem long enough to spend with them. She absentmindedly twisted the ring on her middle finger, which was a beautiful silver wedding ring with a trio of diamond nestled at the top. She had worn it since the day her Mother passed, and had her fathers as well, put away safely. Her stomach suddenly grumbled, bringing her back to the present. Yikes! She better find some food. She was about to step away from the jewelry store window, when she was abruptly bumped into by a silver haired man. He apologized immediately, asking if she was okay. She noticed his stark white hair immediately.
"Oh, I'm fine, it's no problem..." She replied, smiling slightly in reassurance. She had been spacing off too, so it wasn't all his fault. he had taken a double take at her, and was starting to blush, making her blush just a little in return. She offered another small smile before starting to turn to continue her search of dinner, but was caught by the man's hand gripping her by the shoulder. He seemed lost for words, and almost shocked as he stared into her eyes. It was like he was searching for something in them, lost. She didn't know how to react. It didn't seem like a violent hold he had on her, or even a perverted one. He had a look on his face that would almost say that he recognized her, and was in disbelief that she was in front of him. Arlette would usually react instantaneously by jerking away and defending herself, but something told her he meant no harm. She gazed into his eyes, the warm mixture of golds and browns were gentle and comforting. She felt safe, but she still didn't know this man, so she started to pull away gently to probe him from his thoughts; he seemed to snap out of it all the sudden, releasing her. He looked quite embarrassed to say the last, rubbing the back of his head and apologizing about how he thought he recognized the color of her eyes. So he DID seem to recognize her in some way. Hm. How strange. She wasn't one to have a very familiar face that people thought they knew, especially with her shocking shade of green eyes. Was it just a pick up technique he was trying to pull on her. From the way he was acting, it seemed unlikely. His face was bright red, standing out with his light complexion and white hair.
"It's okay, it was an honest mistake..." She said, but was cut off by his phone ringing. He flipped it open, the name Victor springing from his lips. Victor?! It couldn't be the same Victor she had met previously, could it? She shook her head to herself. Nah, this city isn't that small. She turned to make her leave, when Kenneth mentioned he had run into a blonde haired green eyed woman. She couldn't help but giggle a little when he said he had probably creeped the hell out of her. She heard a rich muffled voice respond, and was yet again grabbed by the shoulder. Oh dear. What now?
She turned back, raising an eyebrow at Kenneth. Her face turned to one of surprise when he said Victor's full name. So it was him?! With their white hair, they could almost be related. Although Victor's was more of a silver.
"You could say I know him...we met briefly earlier this morning." She said, taking a step closer. "I'll talk to him, sure." She smiled, tentatively grasping the outstretched phone being offered from Kenneth's hand.
"Hello, Victor?" She spoke into the phone, unsure of what more to say.

Victor listened to Kenneth as he told him what he was doing, he then heard him speak of a woman that sounded much like the woman he had met earlier "What are you doing, what no I don't need to speak to --" He said before being cut off by a voice on the other end of the line "Hello, Victor?" he heard a voice that sounded much like Arlette's. "Hello Arlette, how are you? I was just about to get some food with Kenneth, he would be the man I was speaking with before he gave you the phone. Would you care to join us? My treat." He said. After he received her response he contemplated walking to the mall, he laughed and began running, knowing he could close the 4 miles in about 20 minutes. He enjoyed running at full speed, he didn't do it often, and he couldn't do it for extended period of times, in fact he would be pushing his limits with this run. When he arrives a the mall he wanders around attempting to locate Arlette and Kenneth. He gets distracted by an antique arms store. He wanders into the store and begins looking at swords I really doubt I'll find it here, but I like swords. The store was completely empty save for the owner. Victor waves at him as he walks in and begins looking at different swords. He see's a few broadswords that show potential but when he picks them up they feel wrong. The blades aren't made of the right material nothing but human blacksmithing used here he thinks as a frown develops on his face. He checks his watch and realizes he has forgotten about Kenneth and Arlette. He waves at the owner again before leaving the store and continuing his search for Kenneth and Arlette, not even thinking to call them.

Arlette held the phone up to her ear, awaiting Victor's reply. His voice came through strong and clear, and if she didn't know any better he sounded just a little irritated. But he quickly invited Arlette to dinner, with the man in front of her as well, who was named Kenneth. Her eyes glanced over to Kenneth as Victor Spoke, and she pondered for a second. Going to dinner with two men she just met today? Well....why not? They both seemed nice enough, even though Kenneth was slightly awkward; which she found amusing. She never went out with other people, so it would be a nice change. Especially sharing a meal. She eats alone most of the time, so she welcomed the company tonight. It was a bit of a risk, but she was ready to switch her routine up. Life was becoming a little droll as of late.
"That sounds wonderful. Thank you so much for the invite Victor. Me and um...Kenneth, will wait for you at the mall." She said, a little uncertain about waiting with Kenneth, but she shrugged the feeling off and reassured herself everything would be fine. Victor's line went dead and she too hung up, closing the cell phone and offering it back to Kenneth.
"Well, Victor has invited me to Dinner with the two of you. I hope you don't mind Kenneth." She said, hoping it wouldn't be a problem. By the way he had looked at her before, she doubted it. "Oh, and now that I know your name...mine is Arlette. Nice to meet you Kenneth."

Kenneth stood in silence as the pair talked on the phone for a few minutes. As soon as he heard the blonde woman say she was going to meet them here for dinner, Kenneth started started sweating bullets. Dinner? With her and Victor? Yikes. As fun as Kenneth was sure it would be, that gave him a decently large window of time where he would be alone with her.

After a short while, it seemed the pair had finished talking, as the woman hung up and handed Kenneth back his phone. "Well, Victor has invited me to Dinner with the two of you. I hope you don't mind Kenneth." She said, to which Kenneth smiled. Who knew, maybe it could be fun? Regardless, Kenneth was just about to speak up and properly introduce himself, when she spoke up again. "Oh, and now that I know your name...mine is Arlette. Nice to meet you Kenneth." Kenneth smiled again, and awkwardly offered her his hand to shake. "It's nice to meet you Arlette. I hope we can become good friends." Kenneth said, trying to let go of his nervousness, but it clung to every word. Kenneth shook his head a few times and patted both his cheeks with his hands. "Sorry," he said. "I'm really nervous." Kenneth said, blushing. "It's not your fault or anything like that. I feel like I recognize your eyes from somewhere, and I don't know why." Kenneth explained, he wanted her to understand. Sure she was pretty, but that wasn't the real reason why Kenneth was nervous. For some reason, her eyes, her face, something about it was familiar to him, but he couldn't quite grasp why. Kenneth stared off into the distance wistfully, trying to remember though the reason escaped him.

"I'm not trying to feed you a line or say that 'we're meant for each other' or some crap." Kenneth explained, "I'm not so low that I'd feed a complete stranger some cheesy line to get her into bed with me. For some reason, your eyes just seem familiar and it's throwing me for a loop." He looked back at her, blushing red, "I feel like I know you from somewhere, like I've met you before." Kenneth said, fumbling over the words like a teenage boy would while telling a pretty girl that he likes her. "Blegh, listen to me, rambling on and on like some wistful old man. Let's start over, first impressions are everything in this day and age after all." Kenneth said, shrugging. He stepped back a little and extending his hand for her to shake once again. "Hi I'm Kenneth. I'm a friend of Victor's. It's very nice to meet you." Kenneth said with a smile. He knew, for some reason, that this girl was important. He could see it in her eyes, those perfectly green, shining eyes. He had to figure it out, and being friendly, really getting to know her, would lead him to what it was. Plus, she was a friend of Victor's, even if he and Kenneth didn't always see eye to eye, she couldn't be all bad. It would be nice to just have a good friend in this city. Not some NPC of fake friend who'd leave you hanging out to dry when being there for you wasn't convenient.

As she played along with their second introduction, Kenneth couldn't help but smile. She seemed nice enough, even if she set his knees wobbling and his heart thumping. The more Kenneth looked at her, the more he realized just how pretty she was. Oh man. Kenneth thought to himself. Just what have I gotten myself into here? I know I recognize her eyes from somewhere, but I can't remember for the life of me. Not only is she way prettier than I first realized, but she's a friend of Victor's, this is such unknown territory. Kenneth puzzled silently to himself for a moment, almost not hearing speak to him. "Well Kenneth, I really do wish you knew where you thought you knew me from. It's going to eat at me for a while..." She said, her finger placed on her bottom lip, and inspecting him as if she might be able to divine where he knew her eyes from just by looking at him. Kenneth felt himself blush again, and rubbed the back of his neck once more. "I'm really sorry." Kenneth said. "I just don't know where I recognize your eyes from. It's been such a long time since I last saw the ones yours remind me of, it seems I've forgotten her face as well. Ahh!! It is a she, I knew it."

Kenneth remembered a woman's voice. Soft, gentle, and nurturing. She had those eyes, she was so kind to him, but where was she from? What was her name? How did Kenneth know her? There were so many questions to be answered. However, during his own reverie, Kenneth had missed out on Arlette's turning his attention back to her just after she looked back at him. Kenneth thought nothing of it. She must have been trying to remember where he knew her eyes from too. Kenneth spoke up again. "I remember those eyes from a long time ago, with a soft voice. She looked after me... I think. I'm not entirely sure. I just remember those eyes and a gentle voice." Kenneth sighed. "Damn, so close, and yet so far. I'll have to see if I can jog my memory later, we're out of 'us' time. There's Victor." Kenneth said, waving to Victor and calling out to him. "Oi! Victor! Over here ya white-haired idiot!" Kenneth smirked when he called out to him. "Hey man. SO glad you could drop by." Kenneth said, and he was. Kenneth had just about had enough stimulation for one night. He'd been alone with a pretty girl for far too long and was starting to lose his focus as to why he was there. He didn't even remember anymore, all he knew was that he was meeting Victor there with Arlette for dinner. "So?" Kenneth asked Victor, turning to face him after he and Arlette had finished greeting each other. "Where did you have in mind? Any place in particular? Also, I don't care where it is or if we're deciding right now, I have no intention of letting either of you pay. Victor covered me last time without telling me, and I got paid today, so I don't care what we're eating, the bill's mine!" Kenneth said, looking directly at Victor, almost challenging him in the way that friendly rivals do.

Victor was walking around when he heard Kenneth call out to him, he walked towards them shook Kenneth's hand. " So, Where did you have in mind? Any place in particular? Also, I don't care where it is or if we're deciding right now, I have no intention of letting either of you pay. Victor covered me last time without telling me, and I got paid today, so I don't care what we're eating, the bill's mine!" Kenneth said as they shook hands. Victor turned to Arlette and was stunned, he knew she was attractive when he noticed her in the gym, but now she was absolutely gorgeous, "Hello Arlette how are you? And might I add that you look stunning." He said to her shaking her hand before responding to Kenneth "I wouldn't dream of taking that honor from you Kenneth" He said with a sly smile. "Also I have not been contracted for a job in about three months, so no payday in just as long." He explained, although Kenneth being Kenneth probably already knew that. "I honestly do not have any preference tonight, I only came out to eat because I was not in the mood for yet another boring night at home, wherever the two of you desire to eat would be more than fine" He said, he would never pick the restaurant if he was not paying. "However I can offer my recommendations, I do know that this mall contains a wonderful Italian restaurant, although it is a touch pricey, on the other hand there is a restaurant that serves Chinese food, the food is fantastic."

Arlette was surprised at how taken aback Kenneth was about her, and she felt bad that he couldn't remember whom she was reminding him of. By the way he talked about the eyes and kind voice that went with them, this person must have been an important figure to him. He must have been pretty young to not be able to remember, since he didn't look much older than herself. Early twenties she guessed. She was extremely curious now though, she had to admit. But, they would probably never figure out who it was, if anyone at all. It could be just one of those weird things where you think you recognize someone for no reason, but in this instance he seemed pretty sure about it. Arlette was relieved that he hadn't actually recognized her from that stupid magazine, and she relaxed instantly, her body becoming less tense. After a moment she was dragged from her thoughts by Kenneth announcing that Victor had arrived. She turned to see Victor approach, giving him a small friendly wave as he made his way up to them. Victor shook Kenneth's hand, and then extended it out to her. She shook his hand with a surprisingly firm grip just like with Kenneth and released it with a smile on her rosy lips. Her cheeks suddenly turned a bright red at Victor's comment, but she tried to shake it off without it phasing her too much.
"Thank you, it's nice to see you again. Thank you for inviting me!" She responded, beaming. She chuckled at Kenneth's comment about Victor paying last time, and by Victor's response she wasn't quite too sure if he wasn't going to try and do it again. They seemed to be good friends, with a friendly dose of rivalry. She liked that. They appeared to be two perfectly nice gentlemen with a normal friendship, which is just what she needed. Nice, normal people with normal relationships.
When Victor mentioned he hadn't been contacted for a job in a few months, she wondered what he could possibly do for a living. By the way he dressed, he seemed decently well off. Maybe she would ask at dinner if she felt it was okay. She turned her attention to Victor when he offered his recommendations for where to eat. Italian and Chinese huh? Hmm. She put her hand on her growling stomach as if to see if it would tell her what would be best, but of course it didn't, so she made her decision quickly.
"Well, I wouldn't mind some Chinese. I am a sucker for Orange chicken!" She said with a playful wink, getting Victor back for winking at her earlier that day to see what his reaction would be for the fun of it. She was in a good mood, and intended on fully making the best of tonight and having fun, and hopefully making some new friends.

"Well, it's decided then." Kenneth said with a smile, his smirk scar stretching up and giving him an impish appearance. "To the Chinese food." Kenneth said, pointing and leading the charge, marching like a drill sergeant. He got to the restaurant a little earlier than Victor and, not putting anything past the sneaky white haired man, walked up to the front and paid for the table as well as any and all services required for dinner that night. "Here," Kenneth said, handing the woman at the front desk two-hundred dollars. "That should be enough for anything we might order, as well as the tip for your cooks and the person who waits on us. If you need any more, please don't hesitate to ask me, I'm footing the bill tonight, do NOT let the other man pay, ok?" Kenneth said. He wasn't intimidating or mean while he said it at all, in fact he was wearing a very large smile. He spoke softly and gently, as if he were asking for a favor. The maitre d' smiled and nodded her head, "Can do sir, however, this should be more than enough..." Kenneth cut her off, "I wouldn't put it past either of my dinner partners, I'm sure that's quite enough, however, if the case arises, where we order more than I've paid for, please come directly to me, do not accept any money from either of my other dinner partners. Ok?" Kenneth asked. It was imperative that neither of them paid, Kenneth was fighting for this as if his pride itself were on the line. The maitre d' once again nodded, "Absolutely sir," she said.

After a short while, he was joined by his dinner partners, Victor and Arlette, and smiled at their approach, "Alrighty, everything's ready to go, they'll seat us momentarily." Kenneth said. As Victor walked past him, Kenneth shot his hand out, quickly and quietly catching Victor in the stomach with his palm. Simultaneously, he cast a wordless spell that would allow him to manipulate the shoelaces on Victor's left shoe to simply untie them. Kenneth's hand hit Victor with no where near enough force to be painful, or even considered a threatening move, just enough to stop him for a moment and convey that he had something to say to him, which he did. "I've already paid for everything, don't even think about throwing any of your money on this. Please just do me this favor and let me treat you. You've covered me before, and while I always get you back, I want this bill. OK?" Kenneth spoke quietly, far too quietly for a normal human's ears to pick up but plenty loud for a demon.

Kenneth stepped away from Victor, "Dude, shoe's untied. What if you tripped? You'd look awful stupid in front of all these people." Kenneth said with a smirk. "Good thing I'm such a good friend or else you would have made a complete arse of yourself." Kenneth said, a wry smile on his face, full of mischief. However, luckily for everyone, Kenneth's particular brand of mischief is fun, lighthearted, and never serious whatsoever, he'll even let the joke fall on himself just to let everyone have a good laugh.
