Hearing the faint sound of Estrella's cries in the distance, Ignacious suddenly stops in his tracks, puzzled; the glowing flames that were engulfing his skeletal hands dissipating in a puff of smoke.

"..There are trees that can cry out in agony in this forest?" Ignacious contemplates, scratching an invisible chin. "...and the great Ignacious is not the cause for it?! Why do people think they can steal Ignacious' hobby of torturing talking trees? It's one of the only things Ignacious has left to himself!"

Grumbling, Ignacious dusts some charred wood splinters off of his robe, before slowly floating away towards the general direction of Estrella's pained cries.

Estrella slowly stands back up, the pain in her head subsiding.

"What- what was that?" asked Estrella.

"Is there someone else here in this disturbing forest, picking on the wailing trees?" Ignacious' voice suddenly rings out from somewhere nearby, the source sounding like it's steadily closing in on Estrella's location. "If so, stay where you are! Ignacious seeks to demand that you stop tormenting them at once - making them cry in agony for no applicable reason is his job!"

An awkward pause.

"..and he also seeks to maybe compare notes on said tree torment! ..More so with the first demand, though!"

Estrella remains silent. Saying anything would make this situation much, much worse than it needed to be. Instead she backed up, trying to hide within the trees.

Ignacious soon visibly appears out in the open, looking for the sign of someone being nearby. Seeing no one around however, he pauses, scratching his skull.

"Gone already? That's no fun," Ignacious mumbled to himself, visibly disappointed, before taking out a pair of reading glasses and some slightly-burnt documents, beginning to read them.
"And here Ignacious was, looking forward to having more notes on.. what was it, bot.. botanical.. botanicide? Yes, that one."

"Ah, just what I've been looking for," an ethereal, yet unseen voice suddenly speaks up.

Ignacious puts away the papers and glasses as a dense cloud of gas flies down into the clearing in front of him, the cloud vanishing as an unfamiliar, yet rather tall figure takes shape and steps forward.

"..And who are you supposed to be?" Ignacious said, a hand over his chin bone as he studied this new person, his other hand starting to lightly flicker with an orange glow behind his back. "More importantly, why is it you were searching for the great Ignacious? He was already looking for someone here, first! Go find people in your own lost woods!"

"..I see no need to answer either of those questions, pyromaniac, nor do I really care what you were doing," the tall figure chides, before pointing backwards with his thumb towards the direction of Ignacious' fires, the smoke still floating up above the treetops. "What matters most as of right now however is that there is something you can do for me, that will be a much better use of your time than setting half the Shadow Forest on fire."

Estrella tries to get a better look at the new, taller figure, hoping that would get a better read on his intentions. While Ignacious would certainly do less damage if he was out of the Shadow Forest, she didn't really believe that whatever the figure wanted him to do would be much better.

The figure appears to be roughly humanoid in appearance, although is of course unnaturally tall for one - nearly double an average human's height. There's also the fact his skin appears to be made entirely of some sort of shiny metal; his face meanwhile looking more like the mask of a ritualistic helmet rather than.. well, a face.
There is little else to tell about him, as he wears a long purple cloak that is horribly shredded near both the bottom and cut-in section, and odd chest armor marked with veins or hieroglyphs that lightly glow with many differing colors, both of which block the rest of his appearance. However, one unsettling fact in his wardrobe choice would have to be that he has a rather damaged-looking Koopatrol helmet slung over the right side of his cloak; likely serving as a shoulder pad.. or trophy.

"HAH!" Ignacious laughed, meanwhile. "Shows what you know, tin man; the great Ignacious does what he pleases!"

Ignacious promptly throws out the palms of his hands, a stream of fire erupting from them and engulfing the metal man in a blaze of red and orange almost instantly. He then starts laughing, watching the torrent of flames spin violently.. but then slowly stops when they're suddenly snuffed out, the metal man standing where he was before, unharmed, and brushing a bit of soot off his chest plate, the markings on it glowing with a red and orange color now.

"..You are likely unaware, pyromaniac, but just a few hours ago I stood on the precipice of power," the metal man said dryly, unmoving. "A power great enough that the world itself screeched in pain from my influence, for all those capable to hear it. While I am no longer whole, of course, I have nonetheless been reborn because of it - into a form that will take more than a campfire to render moot. I advise you to think again on your decision."

The metal man snaps his fingers, and a few seconds pass, nothing seeming to have happened.. up until Ignacious suddenly drops to the ground like a sack of rocks, pinned there by an unseen force and having difficulty moving around.

"..Now, enlighten me; have you ever seen something like this before?" the metal man resumed as he walked over to Ignacious, pulling a small, white cube from his robes, the object floating just above his clawed hand, glowing faintly and sparkling with a strange energy as he held it out.

The sight of this strange object causes Ignacious meanwhile to seize up, the fiery glow around his hand dissipating instantly, as he mulls something over in that centuries-decayed head of his.

"..Ignacious wishes to know where you acquired this," he sputtered, struggling to speak above the needles of grass, eyeing the object before him.

"I'll tell you, certainly," the metal man interjects, putting the cube away, this time grabbing a suspicious vial containing some sort of blackened liquid, writhing in its bottle. "But I require something first - a trade, let's say - as a gesture of goodwill."

"And what exactly is it that you want Ignacious to do?" Ignacious said, his voice slightly muffled.

"Why, I want you to do a little bit of information digging, incite a bit of chaos and, if you have the time, perhaps.. cause an international incident, of course?" the metal man said, his eyes narrowing into the shape one would usually make if they were giving off a sickening grin.

Estrella was taken aback. If the man could shrug off fire that easily, then little Estrella could do was likely to affect him. So she quickly made tracks, running for another area in the Shadow Forest - anywhere that wasn't there.

The man pauses, somehow hearing the sound of rustling grass in the distance.

"So there WAS someone else here.." he muttered to himself.

"You ruined Ignacious' game of arson-turned-hide-and-seek," Ignacious said, still stuck. "Ignacious hates you immensely."

"Don't care. Even if someone else is here, it is highly unlikely they will prove an issue, especially to me," the man retorted, standing up. The gravity around Ignacious also lessens, and he in turn quickly floats back up into the air, giving the man an unamused look. "Besides; you can resume your 'game' when you are done with the task I'm about to give you."

"Fine," Ignacious grumbled, before staring at the bottle the man pulled out a few seconds ago. "What is that tiny bottle that you hold before Ignacious? Is it going to help him? He laughs at you, if so; Ignacious does not need a silly little bottle to sow chaos!"

"Shut up and I will explain," the man said simply, holding the vial up into the air so the two can get a better look, the black liquid within it still writhing uncontrollably. "This little vial happens to hold a powerful parasite, not native to this world - it releases a unique toxin into a living organism's veins, that flows through the brain and nervous system, mutating those infected into savage beasts, whether through a fairly large physical injury dealt by one of said beasts or a direct injection. This specific strain has been genetically altered in the past to subconsciously respond to my will, so you need not fear being assaulted by the hosts. It is one of the last few specimens in existence, and I only have it, because.. well, that's a story for another time. "

The man hands Ignacious the vial with utmost care, and then snaps his fingers once again, as a spectral entity suddenly appears next to the duo in a burst of dark mist - the Lurker, looking a lot more corrupted than before, his once sapphire-blue markings now a dead, gray color. The man then pulls out a second vial, handing it to the Lurker.

"I want you, with the help of Lurker here, to use it to cause an outbreak in Haven; specifically, in the Rusty Slums and Sicherheim," the man said adamantly, preparing to give a detailed explanation of his plan.

"Aside from sowing sudden panic among the lesser beings, this rather large-scale attack is merely to draw the attention of an otherworldly group I am.. acquaintances with, who happen to have many things I wish to seize. They, and they alone are familiar with this rather dangerous plague, and will undoubtedly intervene after seeing one of their own going rogue," the man explained. "While they debate amongst themselves on what to do, and once I get confirmation of both outbreaks starting, I, in the meantime disguised as one of the members likely to appear, will launch my own attack on Sanctuary itself using the hordes of the abyss, and make a "fruitless attempt" on the lives of businessmen and people of importance alike, until they arrive."

The metal man pauses, checking to see if Ignacious understood a word of what he just said.
He doesn't, of course; just staring blankly at the metal man, causing him to groan in utter frustration.

"..Just take your vial of the parasite, go to the Rusty Slums, stab as many people as possible with it, and then set fires everywhere or whatever," the man said, visibly agitated, grabbing a syringe from somewhere in his cloak (where did he get all this stuff from?) and forcing it into Ignacious' hands.

"..Aaaaah, okay then," Ignacious said, saluting awkwardly and taking off into the sky, flying towards the Haven region.

"..Are you sure you can trust him to follow through with this, Lord Garrison?" the Lurker spoke up, as he watched Ignacious fly away. "He seems.. unhinged."

"If he has any recollection of the man he once was, the ignorant rodent will be intrigued enough to do this little errand. Either way it matters not, he's as expendable as anyone else," the man, apparently dubbed Garrison, spat with disgust.
"Now, get going. The window of opportunity for this will be shrinking by the minute."

The Lurker merely nods before flying off into the air, following after Ignacious.
Garrison on the other hand remains within the forest for just a few seconds longer, looking about his surroundings, his eyes narrowing inquisitively.. before he turns into a cloud of miasma and flies away, himself.

-----

Wherever Estrella may be at this point, she should be able to sense a chilling presence slowly vanishing from the forest, as if the wicked entity she had seen earlier had finally left.
