Charnel

"If you have no business with me, get out of my sight!"

a character in “Let's take over the world!”, as played by The Soul one

Description

Name: Charnel

Nickname: Deathmaster

Age: 380

Gender: Was male.

Race: Lich, a skeletal being that was originally designed for eternal life, but a side effect was losing one's sense of humanity. A fairly easy to find ritual, but great power is needed in order to use, and most die before the ritual is complete. Attempts at making the ritual without the side effect has only led the creation of ghosts.

Personality: Once upon a time, Charnel wasn't quite so horrid and distasteful. In fact, he was quite nice. But when his family was slaughtered in front of him, he grew dark, angry, evil. He hates the living, but has come to a decision, that the living must rule this world, but not while it is in so much chaos. Order must be placed before he can truly begin to learn who he was again. He will follow any order given to him, no matter what a terrible deed, if he sees that it will assist in that goal. He is a horrible person, who has no sense of morals, nor does he see life as having any form of value, although he sees value of those in power or those with ambition.

Bio: Long ago, as Charnel is willing to tell, lived a man and his family. He had a wife and two kids. They lived in the wilderness, away from civilization or even the wilderness, in a place where, if you knew what to do, nature would let you live with it. Of course, that ended when a group of settlers came. The took his land, and forced him and his family to settle with them. They took his knowledge of the surrounding area and abused it, taking all the resources and using them to make a city. Charnel, though that wasn't his name at the time, did nothing to stop them, for he thought that that was an improvement. He studied magic, finding ice magic much easier for him then the rest, and they lived...

Until an army of demons descended upon them, destroying everything and capturing many, including Charnel and one of his sons. Charnel was forced to continue his learning of ice magic and to take up necromancy, otherwise they would kill his son. Charnel did as they told, biding his time until he finally had enough power to make himself a lich. He thought the transformation would not effect his mind, but it did. It made him into the monster he is today, heartless and cruel. Ignoring their threats against his son, Charnel slaughtered the demons, finally freezing his son to death after they were defeated. Charnel then hid behind the curtains of history, using others as figureheads as he controls everything from the back.

He came under Yuki's command a good eight years ago, where he has discovered him to be more ambitious and foolhardy then he originally thought. Instead of abandoning him as his mind told him to do, he stayed, intrigued at the young king's intellect and objective. He believe's that the world should be under one rule, but not his, and that he intends to ensure that he will survive until the ends of time, which, in the current state of the world, may be hard to accomplish. He sees himself as his adviser, but as he doesn't have morals, he is often pointing out the 'errors' in his ways, such as helping a small group of farmers. He sees small acts like that a waste of resources, and attempts to refuse to assist in such situations, although will do so grudgingly if commanded. He finds Yuki's eventual mental instability disturbing, as his loss would mean that he would have to find another person with similar ambition, and tries to keep him from using magic as much as possible.

In-depth look at your weaponry:

Ice spike:
A large pillar of ice protrudes from the ground, impaling anyone who was unfortunate enough to be standing there.

Raise Dead:
Brings back a dead body back to life to fight. Is not easily killed, but isn't that hurtful either. More of a shield or distraction then anything. They fight as if they were still alive, though they could survive losing their heads. They die when they suffer a lot of physical damage, and losing several limbs seems to be the most effective way to kill them. When killed, disintegrates to ash. Can create one in a few minutes, and can control up to twenty of them.

Raise Monstrosity:
Turns a corpse into a true horror. Is incredibly hard to kill, yet is very dangerous. Tentacles and mouths grow across the body, which also grows in size. Is much faster and stronger then it looks. They fight in a horrendous fashion, grabbing and mauling foes as they come, ripping them apart, and stopping to devour bodies even in the midst of battle. They can take a massive amount of punishment before dying, as they grow much tougher. A sword will have trouble cutting though a bone three inches thick. They can die, however, if they take about as much structural damage similar to their smaller cousins. (losing about forty percent structural integrity causes death for both.) Making one takes several hours. Disintegrates to nothing on death. Can only control up to three at a time.

(note: Charnel controls his undead through the use of extending his phylactery's power through him allowing him to possess the bodies. This indicates that he actually doesn't control them directly, more like gets them to get up and follow his orders, like getting a trained dog to do as you wish. Anyone wishing for specifics will be disappointed, as Charnel will tell them nothing, although those he trusts will be informed that he doesn't even know that much about it either. He says that it's similar to a man's relationship with his dog. The dog will do as the dog was trained to do, which, in this case, is fight and fetch. If the man gets trapped, the dog will stay with him or go and seek help. Charnel's lack of humanity makes this very confusing for him. This indicates that he uses his humanity to control the undead, which is rather strange, as they follow whatever horrible orders that Charnel gives them. As such, Charnel doesn't have to concentration, nor does he lose anything from making an undead being, although he found a limit that, no matter how hard he tries, cannot break. Whenever he makes a new undead, the first one he made dies.)

Ice Wall:
More of a knee-jerk reaction then anything, makes an 8 by 4 ft. wall of ice within thirty feet away. Used for cover and to buy time to run/get one's thoughts together.

Spectral Spear:
Charnel carries a spectral spear that he can throw. When it hits something, it quickly teleports back to him. He uses it for blocking mostly in melee.

Apperance (when not hiding in a robe):
Image

Charnel has been under Yuki's command for quite a while now, although he hasn't really done much to truly show his tactical abilities.

Note: Charnel, being a lich, has a phylactery, which holds his soul. It is a small glass orb the size of a small marble, which he keeps in a box hidden in his room at the top of his tall thin tower. A phylactery works by putting one's soul into physical form, usually a small crystal-like object, where it then controls a single body similar to a puppet, although in a more controlled fashion. Should he die, it will glow brightly, open the box, and begin creating him again. First it makes his skull, which, as soon as it is done, will allow him to speak. It then works it's way down his body until he is finished, where he 'spits' out the phylactery, and probably puts it back where it was before. This process takes a little over a week to finish.

So begins...

Charnel

Charnel looked out into the forest from his tower. He didn't like it too much, as an approaching army could easily hide itself and it would take them a while to even notice. He shook his head. There was to much to do, and they needed to do it fast. They needed momentum, and enough so that they could take on any force that stood in their way. Charnel has been brainstorming on several ways to do this, but so far has only came up with a few ideas, and they needed more of a workforce and an army before any of those could be done.
He stepped out of his tower. Its base was positioned inside the walls, but on the side farthest from the gate, in the middle of the yard, between the outer wall and the actual castle itself. He muttered to himself as he walked through the mud into the castle. They were having a war meeting, apparently they had something to do that may help them. He heard Dasin call his name.
"Yes, yes, I'm here! We should have done one of these weeks ago." He grumbled. He wasn't exactly fond of the Minotaur, but she was an ally, no matter how headstrong or brash. He took his seat.

Dasin


Dasin raised her head from the crude map she had been inspecting, drawn by Yuki when she had told him to go and do something useful. He'd drawn it from his tower, detailing the area around the castle. It wasn't that it was bad map, just she didn't see how it would be of much use. Things changed so often in their world with towns being built and destroyed so often no-one really ever bothered to draw them anymore. There was bunch of them sitting in the stores from the old days, but Dasin reckoned they would be more use as kindling for the snows than actually giving them information.

"Then maybe you should have called one" she said evenly, Charnel wasn't her favorite conversation partner but he was the most useful in this aspect. They often went for days without speaking to one another, each working in their own way to achieve their goal. "We can't sit here like this much longer, the flyers and the rumors we spread" she noted "It's going to start getting the attention we want but..." she sighed, she had hoped for a few more powerful warriors than they had gotten. They had gotten a few volunteers, fit for no more than guard duty and cannon fodder. If they were attacked by stronger foes they were dead in the water. "We need to increase our strength" she said finally pushing the two sheets of paper over to Charnel.

They were detailed in a writing they had developed themselves over the years, the first detailing a request by the village to the west asking for help with a goblin horde. "Sounds like Hobs" she commented. Hobs were a type of goblin, small and annoying and little problem for the likes of the staff of Castle Yuki on a one to one situation. The problem with Hobs is that they all traveled in groups and could overwhelm people easily. Nasty little things who loved destruction, especially blowing things up. "We could gain allies of the village, a few more people to man the walls, access to stores and merchants and apparently the Hobs have dug something up. Then the other, a Water Magi request, sent it to me in an orb". Dasin had received a message in an orb of water from an unknown Magi yesterday night. The paper detailed an argument between two Magi, one had stolen something from the other and he wanted it back 'under any circumstances', the payment was anything you could take from the Magi your were stealing from. "If we accept this one he'll send details of where to go and a way in without notice. What are your thoughts?"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yuki


Yuki peered at the young girl questionable. It seemed rather odd that a little girl would want to fight. He pondered at how she had come to be here and what had she suffered to get to this door. He was rather surprised by her blazing eye colour, but quickly decided he liked them. As an owner of an odd pair himself he liked seeing others the same. Blinking down at her he wondered what to say and then Dasin's words came to him.

"I believe the correct honorific is "Lord" not Sir" he commented with a grin, looking up to see a running Ghostman come towards them. He had always liked Ghostman, having traded with the caravans before. Formidable fighters too, Yuki didn't doubt he also want to join. He offered the gentle man a soft smile as a welcome. "Oh!" he said softly, he had been on the way to the war room. And it wouldn't do to keep Dasin waiting, she'd gotten quite bossy the last few months. Without saying another word he turned and walked towards the war room, seeing Dasin and Charnel he smiled strolling up to them. Never did it enter his mind that in this fortress that he had just left the door wide open for the recruits to let themselves in, and this somehow might be a bad idea.

Charnel


Charnel took the papers with interest. "Good, good. I grow tired of waiting." He looked over the page containing the information on the village. "hmm... Perhaps..." His mind drifted. If his memory served, that particular goblin tribe was susceptible to bullying, perhaps they could get them to follow their rule? Doubtful, as it has been several generations since then, and if their numbers have grown too large, then they would be unable to be swayed, but if their numbers had decreased... "Perhaps perhaps." He said, casting aside the paper for the one he was truly interested in, the magi. "Did the mage say anything on the other one? It could determine whatever we find in his lair." If he could, he would like to get one of the magi into joining them, but he was interested in what the water mage wanted... Perhaps they could use it more then the mage? Perhaps he held more items that they could use? Charnel hadn't been thinking quite like this in some time, and gods, did he miss it...

He glanced up as Yuki entered the room. "Ah, my lord!" He waited until he was seated until he continued talking. "We have several jobs that we could attend to." He said, handing him the papers. "I was thinking that we could ask the mage to wait until we finish the goblin problem first, then take care of his problem. That way we get both jobs done, and get both rewards. If he gets impatient, we could always split our forces, but that could end poorly, as our forces are as thin as they are. But if we pull such a feat off, then we gain both rewards." He said after he read the papers. He knew that he tends to ramble, and that would only harm the situation rather then assist it, as well as give the people in the room a headache.

AIDEN


Aiden growled loudly as she unsheathed her sword, channeling heat into the blade until it glowed brightly then in a flash the blade was covered in the bright red blood of the now dead hounds. Her eyes deepened to a blood red as her fangs passed her bottom lip and her nails sharpened. Sheathing the blade, Aiden removed her black gloves as her nails lengthened from delicate to deadly.

Her inner dragon craved the split blood, wanting more. The dark part of her mind flashed images and memories of her past, the anger she felt, the rage, the feelings of just having enough of everyone calling her weak. She didnt need help. The storm grew wider and worsened with her boiling anger, her eyes flashing over to the Ghostman whom seemed to be coming over to help her. Help she didnt need.....nor want. Then everything seemed to go quiet as a loud crack echoed through the tree's. No it wasnt thunder. It was the sound of Aiden's spine lengthening, her skin breaking and a long, deep blood red tail ripped through her clothes. The bone white spikes were coated in blood as Aiden suppressed the urge to scream and cry in pain.

NO! it wasnt meant to get that far! The last time she popped her tail......well she couldn't remember all she knew was everyone was dead afterwards. Her wings struggled against the tape she had put around them, wanting to spring to life, her bodies nature urges pushing her forward.

Shit, no.

In seconds Aiden had the hearts of each of the Hunters in her hands. It was her way of killing them quickly for she had done it so many times before. But she knew more of them would always come. Her blood lust subsided as her tail receded back into her body, her features going back to normal but instead of her normal gold eyes Aiden's eyes were an bright ocean blue as she through the hearts onto the ground. The rain poured from the sky, washing away the blood.

Yuki


Yuki grinned at Charnel as he came up to him. He had always liked the Lich and felt even if he fell that the necromancer would continue his work, he did seem highly motivated. Both Dasin and Charnel did alot of the work around the castle, Yuki's main job being to stay calm and provide an intimating presence when required for the past few years. It seems even the words 'Demon Lord' were enough to keep smaller bandits away. "Yes, I agree." he said almost at once. The goblins did sound a lot more manageable.

"Dasin can you contact the Magi, tell him we are contracted but we will be accepting his quest. More information...would be nice" he said with an inward smirk. Both dreading and relishing the chance to leave the fort and do battle. The goblins should be the perfect test for him.

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

Dasin


As Charnel spoke with Yuki, Dasin took note of the odd weather that came and went quickly. 'Great, exactly what we need is an immature Magi' she said to herself. Though as the men spoke she became aware of noises that were drifting down the hall. Battle noises? In the Castle? She walked slowly to the door of the war room, unsheathing her scythe from her back restraints and Yuki gave her commands. "Of course my Lord" she answered completely distracted by the possibility that someone had broken into the fortress. Peering her head around the corner carefully she saw at once that the front door was wide open. And the source of the stuggle appeared to be on their doorstep though no-one had yet entered.

Dasin took a second to take a deep breath before turning around and giving Yuki a scathing look. That idiot had done this, she could tell by the stupid look on his face as the realization seemed to dawn on him. "We shall speak about this later!" she said hurriedly and ran to the front door. The sight was one to behold. Rain washed down in the sky as a woman, who clearly would had been covered in blood if not for the downpour, and a ghost man stood in the rain. The man at least looked perplexed. She turned her head as a lone living death hound attempted to jump at her, and with a whirl of her scythe it was living no more.

Stepping out into the rain she looked upon the devastation outside the door. They had almost certainly been Hunter's, what with the hounds, an educated guessed told her it was the girl they had been after not one of the nomadic GhostFolk. She strolled up to her keeping a few feet away, but in range of the scythe, the rain pouring from her horns, her face set like ice. "You brought death to our door." she said slowly, evenly, her magic mark ached as it did when it was being used around her. "And a storm so it seems. So what exactly am I to do with a wanted and possible unstable young woman like yourself? You do realize we have a demon lord in these walls? I do not require having to keep an eye on a second." The girl clearly had power, but it was up to Dasin to weigh up the pros and cons, Yuki was already something they needed to prepare for, an erratic teen was something they could do without. "Give me one good reason to invite you into my hall, both of you." her voice was thick with displeasure, similar to a mother giving out to her children for having done something stupid. But nothing was going to stop them from uniting this world, she was determined to slay any in their way.

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

Yuki


"Ah yes" he muttered quietly as he suddenly remembered. "Charnel, we have new recruits" he said beaming down at the Lich.

Charnel


Charnel stared at the young lord for a few seconds. "...Why you didn't think that that wasn't important, I will never know. Is that fighting?" (when Dasin killed the last dog) He said, getting up and investigating. He turned into the bloody mess. "Oh dear..." The blood wasn't what surprised him, oh no. He's seen enough of that in his lifetime. But the young woman standing there, holding the hearts of several men in her hands, when it looked like she ripped them straight from the rib cage... That took some serious strength.

"Give me on good reason to invite you into my hall, both of you." Charnel realized that Dasin was talking, and barely caught what she said. He shook his head.

"Perhaps an explanation is in order before you jump to conclusions. And perhaps you have forgotten that death is sleeping inside the walls anyway?" He said, referring to himself. It would be unwise to anger such a powerful creature, especially when it can rip through bones as easily as it just did. He turned to her. "What exactly happened out here?" Charnel said. He was ignoring the ghost man, mostly because he didn't look that interesting.

Alauniira



Two guards stood outside a minor fortress, staring out into the ink-black night. Their prince was locked away safely inside, which was exactly where they wanted him to be. The guards were patrolling the area around the gate, making sure that there would be no rival lord attempting to gain any sort of power or edge with an attack during the night--there were plenty of those that would send an army to take this little small parcel of land, they knew. Roving nobodies, organized hordes, even the crazies as they called them had all taken a shot at trying to seige the castle, but it was all for naught. The defenses were rather strong, after all--it had taken two generations of builders to build and fortify the walls to the strength that they were today.

The guards wandered about on their patrol, oblivious to the figure that was scaling the wall behind them. It stuck to the shadows, almost blending into the scenery as the patrol passed overhead. The figure paused momentarily on its climb, taking a quick second to wriggle in place before moving on ahead further up the wall. In the moonlight, one could make out one, two, even three slender chitinous legs quickly gliding up the wall.

Idle chatter from above, from between the patrolling guardsmen. The figure heard it pass its position before it climbed over the edge of the fortification. Quickly scuttling behind them, it bent over and bit down on the neck of one guard, leaving two sizable marks with a drop of sickly-green liquid sizzling quietly on his flesh. A second later, the guard seized and fell over, twitching slightly and eyes somewhat glazed over. His partner pulled out his weapon, whirling around with weapon drawn and hoping to find whatever had caused his partner so much pain. Behind him, however, was nothing but the wind and the sky.

"Sh-Show yourself, f-fiend!" The chill in the air was either finally getting to him, or he was scared out of his mind. He did not notice, however, the tail end of a monstrous creature barely poking out from behind the wall he was supposed to be protecting. With a near-silent thwip, a long strand of what appeared to be silk stuck to the guard's ankle, followed by another and another until several dozen strands seemed to coalesce themselves into a rope. By the time he looked down to see what was happening, he was pulled to the floor and dragged off the top of the wall in a screaming fit.

"Shh... Keep quiet or she'll eat you..." a soft feminine voice cut through the darkness as the guard wriggled around from the rope around his ankle.

"W-W-What? Eat-t-t-t m-m-m-m-me!?" the guard's eyes grew wide as the figure of a young woman leaned out of the darkness. She appeared slender and pale-gray in the limited light, but there was something enchanting about her form, even with the dark hair covering her face save for one yellow eye and half of her smirk.

"W-What... are you?" the guard gasped, paling as two long slender legs emerged from the darkness--the legs of a massive spider. His jaw dropped as she pulled her hair back, revealing not one but four other yellow eyes staring intently at him.

"I am death."

The creature bit down on the guard's neck, feeling two fangs quickly pierce his flesh and inject the venom into his body. It would only take a few second to get the full effect she needed, but soon the guard was limp and seizing like his partner. She, however, was feeling rather peckish--it had been an entire day since she had eaten last. Besides, this lord had asked her to perform an assassination in his name and what had he done for her in return? Attempted to have her killed? No, she needed to send a message--killing him outright would never do... unless, of course, she was contracted to do so, then she would have fun with him...

The guard currently ensnared by her web was first to be completely encased in the stuff. Out of sight of any other guards, she stuck him up on the wall before biting into his neck once again and drinking the fluids that began spilling out from the open wound. After a few minutes of this macabre spectacle, the guard was completely drained of liquid, nothing more than a husk of petrified flesh and web. The guard she had bit before received the same treatment--why let a good meal go to waste?

With these husks completely drained, she made sure that they would be visible when the sun finally came up. Her deed complete, the creature scuttled back out into the wilderness, knowing full well which direction to go to find one Castle Yuki. One of her agents had informed her of rumors of a meeting of those that would wish to unite the world under one rule. If this was the case, why was she not invited? Perhaps they were afraid of her, which was completely logical--it's not every day that one meets with a drider, let alone one that runs one of the most successful assassins guilds in the land. She felt it time to make her presence known to whomever might be waiting for her there and let them know what they were getting themselves into without her there.

After travelling for another day and night (and also stopping to feed on another victim or two), the drider came to a rather imposing castle. She had heard that this place was run by a demon lord. She found this rather amusing--a creature of entropy and chaos was attempting to bring order to a world that had none. Did they think that it could be done? Regardless, she was here now, and the least she could do was to infiltrate--

Or perhaps she would not have to infiltrate after all. A group of creatures stood at the front gate of the castle, speaking to themselves as if in some sort of club. The smell of rain was in the air, but was there a storm that passed through here recently? It seemed so, but the drider had not seen anything like on her travels...

Regardless, she clambered up the side of the castle wall, out of sight of the others before crawling around the corner and merely waiting above the gate, observing the group and waiting for someone to announce her presence. If they did, she would probably be invited in--if not, then she could always sneak in after them...

AIDEN


Aiden stiffened when a female join them outside. She giggled quietly to herself seeing the fact this everyone is seeing her as a 'young' girl when really she was older then the lot of them.

"How about disarming your enemy with a creature they have never faced before?" Aiden said quietly. She knew she wasn't completely stable with the mix of her emotions and her powers but she wouldnt cause anyone trouble. In her species she was still only a hatchling. When another person join them, his voice much calmer and gentler then the woman's Aiden relaxed. If she was going to join them she needed to tell them the truth so they could trust her.

"Well you see.....umm......These Bounty Hunter's are some of many that are after my hide because i guess i'm worth alot to someone out there, I'm not wanted for being a bad person but for just existing in general. I guess my ancestry is legendary and powerful and i am the only one of my kind......i....i....i'm a.....d...dr..agon. And i had to kill these men or they would have tried to kill me and everyone else here" Aiden explained, she hated admitting what she was, she scared herself sometimes with the amount of power she possessed.

"My name is Aiden Hunter and i'm one-hundred and eighty years old and the only dragon to exist in the world" Aiden said softly but then her senses kicked in, feeling another person join them. The scent of blood and silk traveled into her nose and Aiden looked up to see a half woman half spider creature had joined them. Aiden's night vision saw her perfectly hidden in the shadows. Aiden's eyes shifted from blue to gold again.

"Hello up there" Aiden greeted the spider woman.

Kor kept his usual smile on his face as he wiped the blood from his sword. Inside he felt troubled. First the little girl turned into... something scaly. Now she was claiming to be a dragon. There were no dragons left in the world, all Ghostfolk knew this. And wasn't Aiden a boy's name?

Staying silently smiling, he listened to the others talk. Better to look amused and mysterious than say something stupid Kor decided. He had to make some sort of impression after that display, so he might as well try and not look completely outclassed.

Hearing the girl-thing call out a greeting, Kor followed her gaze. As his eyes fell upon the thing above the door, he strongly considered turning, walking through the forest and going home.

Remembering that he had no home to go to was probably the only thing to stop him. "Time to make an impression" he thought, and strode purposefully to the two figures in the door. Deliberately ignoring the monster girl beside him, and horrifying spider shape in the shadows above he went to one knee and presented his scimitar to the horned woman. "May blade and blood are bound to your cause" he intoned, offering the traditional opening of a Ghostfolk mercenary.

As he awaited a reply, he debated with himself whether he would regret her acceptance.

Dasin


Her brow furrowed as she felt the starting of a new and violent headache. Just an hour ago she had been fretting that they were not strong enough and now she was surrounded by what she could only call powerful idiots. She absently wondered if they were more trouble than they were worth but threw the notion from her head quickly, Dasin knew they couldn't survive without a greater army and now they had enough to split their forces and complete both their quests. She should have been happy, instead she felt concerned.

Information flew at her like bullets from a gun. The girl was a dragon, the last dragon, not only would she be powerful but a great resource as well, almost as useful as Yuki. Her unpredictability though was an issue, as were her apparent mood swings. She'd have to keep someone strong with her- her eyes slid over to Charnel, he had certainly calmed her down. And then her attention went to the spider above them. Dasin would have been a fool not to know who the creature was. Tales of a spider that moved in the shadows were well known- though most hoped it to be a tale. She doubted the woman had come to kill them, having not even sensed the beast climb the walls they would have already been dead had she wanted them so. Unless she was the type to taunt with her prey.

"May blade and blood are bound to your cause". Gods, she had almost forgotten about the ghost man as he knelt at her feet. This one at least, this one she would happily accept. The nomadic folk of the caravans were a loyal race once bound. It was an easy choice to make as she too went down on one knee to the ghostman. "As my house and trust are now yours to hold" she replied in the traditional response. Standing up she signaled to the man to do the same as she wiped the mud from her knee.

"I suggest we take this inside" she expressed to Charnel, taking her own advice and slipping into the hallway, a last glance up upon the arachnid on the walls.

The Magi- Frenus Tot


He slammed the heavy oak door behind with more force than was necessary only too glad to be out of the boy's presence. Taking deep breaths he attempted the slow the beating of his racing heart- even seeing a demon such as Kaito frightened the Magi greatly, not that he would ever express that to the beast. Taking a overly large brass key he locked the door with a heavy click and walked up the winding stairs, up through a trap door to his ground floor. He threw some carpet over the now sealed opening and considered the matter dealt with. He wouldn't have to deal with that thing for another few hours at least. There was no way it could escape anyway, not with his master after making those chains.

Anyway he had much more pressing matters to attend to, he had just stolen a rather interesting specimen from an unwary Water Magi and was rather looking forward to getting his tools into it. A smirk broke out on his face, in three days time the boy would be moved, he would be rich and his master would grant him more power than he dared dream. In three days Frenus Tot would be a name creatures feared.

Yuki


He actually quite liked his map. Maybe he should make more he pondered, hearing someone come in from the rain.

AIDEN


Aiden glanced nervously turning her head towards the Ghostman who first looked at her in disbelief the his expression went stoic and he ignored her. Aiden didn't blame him though, everyone thought either dragons never existed or they were all extinct. Especially not a dragon like her. While when dragons were alive each dragon had power over one element but Aiden somehow controlled all of them. She didnt know how to bring up that little piece of information. Slowly she followed after the horned woman, clutching her satchel tightly, something she did when she was unsure about something or someone. Three things of great value to her rested in the satchel. She was born with them around her neck, she doesnt know what they do or mean they are just of great value to her. Something of her past.

Alauniira



The drider sat up on the wall, listening intently to what the ones below her were discussing. One young woman in particular--well, she appeared to be rather young until she introduced herself to the group and explained that she was over one-hundred-eighty years old--had claimed that there were bounty hunters chasing her because she was a dragon. If that were the case, it might have explained the idea of a storm having hit the area, but she would have to have a bit more proof than her word.

"Hello up there," the aforementioned young dragon--Aiden, she had said her name was--called up to the drider, eyes flashing gold for a brief moment. Perhaps this Aiden had seen her after all; if she had, then she must have had some rather keen eyesight. Another man looked up after Aiden had called out to her and seemingly paled, although he was rather pale to begin with. She noticed too that he immediately turned toward another young woman with two large horns growing from her head and offered her an elaborate greeting, perhaps something to take his mind off of her form. There was another figure there but it did not seem to pay her any mind.

She debated whether sitting above the gate was the best idea, considering she had been seen already, but she would receive differing looks of horror and fascination whether in the shadows or in the light. When the horned figure, however, turned up to look at her, she seemed to recognize what the creature on the wall was and eyeing her with extreme caution. This was good--the horned woman understood who she was and what she was capable of. She was a smart one indeed.

And then the invitation. There was in fact an invitation to enter the castle after all. She was slightly disappointed that she would be able to simply walk in without any struggle or sneaking, but at least she would be going in. As the horned woman looked up at her once more, she smiled wide, displaying teeth and then two retractable fangs. It payed to intimidate the tough ones, especially those who knew of her and what she was truly capable of.

Slowly she stretched her eight legs and crawled down the castle wall, making her way toward the supposed dragon-woman. She turned toward her and smiled wide, displaying teeth once more.

"A dragon, you say... How interesting..." she mused, placing a hand up near her forehead. "I'll be keeping an eye on you, then..." She brushed away the hair covering most of her face, revealing the four other golden eyes. The drider was unsure as to whether this would intimidate her or not, but if this Aiden character had not heard of who she was before now, then it was highly doubtful that her little display would. Still, she did enjoy playing with the minds of others, as it provided her with a sense of entertainment. She would also keep an eye out for the horned woman; the drider had little doubt that she could be dealt with if she was to resort to self-defense.

AIDEN


A spider woman? huh!
Aiden had heard rumor's about a deadly spider woman but even so she wasn't scared of her. As she can remember spider's rely on toxins and the webbing and as a dragon that made her immune to alot of toxins, not all but most and it took alot to infect her, that is if the woman could even get her fangs into her blood stream or skin at all for the scales laying just under neath her flesh exterior can only be cut by dark magic or an enchanted sword as Aiden's own. Sensing that this woman was trying to intimidate her Aiden lengthened all her teeth to a fine point and flashed the woman a big, innocent smile, silently informing her Aiden was armed as well to.
The woman looked at her like many of the other's did, in disbelief so to prove her point Aiden removed her cloak and jacket, showing off the womanly curves that were well hidden and also the scales on her hand and the birth marks on her body. The to make an even bigger point Aiden used a sharped claw and peeled back and piece of vulnerable flesh to reveal the dark red scales underneath then watched as the skin almost immediately healed back.

"Is that enough proof for ya?" Aiden growled
"I'm Aiden and you are?" she said polity to the spider woman.

Charnel


Charnel watched the strange individuals move themselves inside the building. He was somewhat unnerved by the drider, but he knew how useful one could be. He knew this was one that he had not worked with in the past. After all, that one was a male. But that was trampled at the excitement he was feeling when the dragon girl showed her birth marks. He knew that she was the real deal, a true dragon. He walked behind her. How unfortunate that the drider was accompanying her.

"I'm Aiden, and you are?" She said to the drider.

Gah, the insolence! He brushed past the two. He really wanted to confront her, to see what she could really do, but he knew that might be a bad plan, considering the time and place. That might make her want to abandon them. Still, it really ticked him off. He walked up behind Dasin, and somehow managed to get his mind on a more preferred subject. "Dasin, with our current numbers, I believe that we may be able to split our forces in a much more safe manner, should they decide to join, of course, but I sense that they shall." He'd call it gut instinct if he had any guts. "All we have to do now is to determine their strengths. I don't think that we have to test the Dragon that much, but the ghostman and the drider may have some hidden talent we are not aware of." He was sure that the drider was an assassin that was living in the area nearby, but the castle is quite isolated, so the rumor may be false. Of course, Charnel did not really listen to rumors much. He personally doubted the ghostman of anything abnormal physically, perhaps he was a genius? Doubtful, but one could hope.

They entered the room they were using for their war council, Yuki was still sitting there, looking over one of his maps. "Sire, I believe that these new... Recruits will assist us greatly." He said, moving back to his seat and sitting down. "We have doubled our number and our strength, by my estimation. She-" He indicated the Dragon as they entered the room behind him. "-is a dragon." He couldn't help but let excitement in his voice.

AIDEN


Aiden blushed at the attention she was getting from the one man. She wasnt one for attention but he seemed curious about her and of course she would answer any questions he wanted to know.

"Umm i dont know what you want us to say but since you weren't outside i shall repeat myself, I am Aiden Hunter but i also go by Blaze, i am one-hundred eighty years old and a dragon, as a dragon i have enhanced speed, strength, sight, hearing, smell, night vision and all of that. I have never entered my full dragon form before because i am still what is known as a hatchling, i am immune to most toxins and the scales that are under neath my flesh can only be cut by certain things. Umm there's still alot i dont know about my own kind, but most dragons have control over one certain element but it might benefit your knowledge that i.....can control all of them. I also know every language even those that have been dead for years and i can read ancient text" Aiden said stoically, hoping that it was all the information they needed to know for it was the only information she could give.

Kor


Kor snorted as he watched the pissing contest begin.

"All of the elements?" he thought, "Ancestors bones, what rubbish!"
Without a word he followed the minotaur through the arch of the door and into the cavernous entrance hall beyond. The imposing man with red eyes who had opened the doors seemed nowhere in sight, but at least these two seemed to be in some position of authority. Relief flooded Kor as a pair of guardsmen saluted the minotaur. It would have been rather embarrassing if he had offered his services to what turned out to be a kitchen maid. Keeping pace, they strode down a barrel vaulted hallway which opened up into a ballroom. Or what should have been a ballroom, for it had obviously been heavily converted, with maps covering walls, tables pulled together and the occasional weapon rack. The whole place seemed half ruin, half war-camp, but for all that it was obviously clean and ordered.

There was the red-eyed man, pouring over one of the maps. From the smile on his face, he certainly seemed pleased by what he saw. Good news from some battle front perhaps? A new trade agreement? Maybe it was just a rather nice map.

Alauniira



The drider was amused by the display that the dragon-woman had given to her. Why go through such great lengths to prove her heritage, especially when she could have shown her skill on the battlefield as well? At least the drider did not have to hide her form like Aiden had to, something that the other robed figure found somewhat unnerving about her. She had gotten used to this new form long before--in fact, she almost pitied the two-legged creatures walking along the ground as she took to the wall and followed the horned woman around toward another room.

"I'm Aiden... and you are?" the young woman asked after her display was finished. This did bring up an interesting dilemma for the drider--there was no one outside of her cabal who had actually heard her real name before, so the very idea of some outsider asking who she was both intrigued and disgusted her. Perhaps if she could convince this dragon to join her guild, then she could know for sure... There might very well be the possibility of that happening, considering the amount of strength she had bottled inside... It was all dependent on whether or not she could convince her that the people that may be hunting her down deserved to be exterminated...

Before she could answer the question, however, the robed figure cut between the two of them and began to talk to the horned woman, hearing something about herself and the ghostman in the muffled conversation. Curious as she was, she soon came to a large room that seemed very spacious and luxurious, or it would have without all of the logistic equipment set up everywhere. Right away, the robed figure approached what she assumed to be the lord of this castle. He was tall with bright red eyes--

Red eyes. The same as her people. Suddenly she felt paranoid, feeling the need to climb the wall and scuttle up to the ceiling, letting her hair hang straight down toward the floor. With a quick flick of her abdomen, several strands of silk stuck to the ceiling, allowing the drider to lower herself slowly and surely toward the group below her. Again, she would take any additional intimidation factor from this act, but it was mostly to prevent herself from lashing out against the lord already, something that she felt would be an inevitable fate between the both of them.

The robed figure explained to the lord of the castle about the dragon--for some reason, he seemed totally enthralled with the idea of a woman who could breathe fire. On top of that, Aiden had gone off and began to explain her entire life's story to him once again. If she was the last of her kind and she wanted to remain hidden, she was doing an awfully poor job of doing so. The drider shook her head as the silk held her in mid-air.

Eventually, her descent brought her down next to the horned woman. The drider's five eyes were level with the horned woman's, and she turned to take another look at her, hoping to catch her off-guard once more. Despite her tought exterior, this one looked as if she was rather skittish of the drider... something that she might be able to use against her in the future...

Dasin


Once the necromancer had left her side and scurried over to Yuki, Dasin went to sit the opposite side of her lord, letting the others file in behind them. She had to stop herself from rolling her eyes at Charnel's excitement over the dragon girl. As far as Dasin was concerned although the girl could prove valuable she had thus far only proved how naive and immature she was. Which was odd, considering the girl claimed to be hundred and eighty years old. What had she spent this entire time doing? Telling people she was the last dragon and wondering why she was getting chased? Dasin allowed herself a little smile at her own personal joke.

And then there was the drider, who was currently making a mess of her ceiling. She clicked her tongue in her mouth, almost wanting to order the woman down but pursed her lips instead. She had no intention of causing a power struggle with the woman like the poor attempt that had happened out in the hallway between the arachnid and dragon-girl. If they were allies she would just have to get used to her, but that did not mean for one moment she liked having 'The dark whisper' in her halls. Saying that she didn't like having Charnel around at first either.

Wait, she still didn't like having the Lich around. But he had proved useful a hundred times over. Using some of Yuki's breathing exercises she attempted to calm her mind as the dragon, apparently called 'Aidan' told her life story once more. Opening her eyes she became aware that Allauniira had made her way over to her. She hated how easily the creature could sneak up on her, and damned her own senses, her right hand tightly closing over her scythe for just a moment before releasing it. Minotaurs weren't exactly known for hunting spiders. No less master assassin spiders. Counting her blessings she had managed not to attempt to swing her scythe at the beast she leaned forward to Yuki.

"And the Ghostman" she said pointedly marking the man's existence, who, quite frankly seemed the most sane here. And she dearly hoped he wouldn't turn on his heel and walk away. "Of course, she needs no introduction" she added leaning back and looking at Allauniira. "It would appear we have a celebrity in our mists" she expressed evenly to the woman. "I only know you from names of the shadows thought, Vemon's embrace, I'm afraid I haven't had the pleasure of your name. Mine is Dasin, the man in the black is Charnel and in front of us is Lord Yuki, the ruler of this castle." This introduction was for everyone, but most of all Dasin was anxious to get on with their plans. The two pieces of paper detailing the missions sat in front of Charnel, she motioned to him to send them over to her.


------------------------------------------------------
Yuki


Yuki regarded each of the newcomers in turn with the same small smile and subtle nod. He acknowledged Charnel’s excitement of the dragon but didn’t share the Lich’s enthusiasm. He considered it must be rather lonely being the last of any kind of thing. But it was nice to see the necromancer so happy about something. The drider had taken up residence beside Dasin, he felt an odd sensation looking at the creature, he had a feeling he could beat her and almost wanted to try. Something about the woman wanted to make him cut her in half. His red eyes became a slightly deeper shade of crimson while he passed the concept in his mind , an inward smirk playing across his face. The ghostman looked like a nice sort of fellow altogether, after all Yuki had caught the man looking at his map, he wondered if the man thought it was any good.

Standing up he brushed his dark hair from his face, tucking the strands behind his pointed ear. "I welcome you all to my home" his voice carrying across the room as he felt something, or better someone familiar. "And I welcome you back, Hayato" he said turning his head to the door, his exclaimation loud enough to make it down the hallway to his former ally's ears.

Alauniira


The drider noticed the horned woman grab for her weapon when she finally sensed her presence behind her. Either this white-haired woman was rather dim-witted or easily spooked, for she seemed rather skittish whenever the spider-woman came near. Perhaps her reputation preceded her after all--easier to keep those people in line then, she felt. Besides, if this horned woman was as strong as her petite frame betrayed, then it would be all the better to have a bit of muscle to distract her prey as she killed them from behind... or above...

"Of course, she needs no introduction..." the horned woman kept her voice even, a sign that the drider interpreted to be an uneasy facade. "It appears we have a celebrity in our midst. I only know you from names of the shadows, though... Venom's embrace... I'm afraid I haven't had the pleasure of your name. Mine is Dasin, the man in the black is Charnel, and in front of us is Lord Yuki, the ruler of this castle."

Of course she knew who Lord Yuki was--what good would a network of personal spies be if she did not keep herself informed with the goings-on of politics? How would she receive word of people requiring her service? She knew he was a demon lord, and she also knew that he was staring at her intently with those crimson eyes. She had not seen eyes that red since her days in the drow capital... Perhaps he was contemplating trying to cut her down? That stare was not one of benevolence, she knew--she had seen it many times before, and she knew that there was something brewing in his mind. If only she could get to him alone...

"I welcome you all to my home..." Yuki's demeanor suddenly shifted to one of welcoming. "And I welcome you back too, Hayato."

Who was this Hayato character? This one had not been introduced with the others, she remembered... Perhaps a straggler? The drider narrowed her eyes as two more figures walked into the room--one a man, the other a goblin half his partner's height. In his mouth he carried some sort of meat in his mouth before announcing his presence as "Skurge". The drider assumed that the other figure would be the aforementioned Hayato, but what was their relationship to one another, he and Yuki?

Taking a quick look around the room, the drider caught sight of Dasin, the horned woman who had also asked for her name. This was why she preferred to use her cabal to coming out in person when she was forced to deal with clients in some way--it perpetuated the mystique and the danger of her identity. She cursed inwardly at this slight misstep on her part, although all could be salvaged still...

Lowering herself down further, the drider touched two spidery legs down onto the floor, followed by another pair and another until all eight were now holding her upright. She cared little for the webbing now hanging from the ceiling--a demon lord should have little care for such things when he not only had more important things to worry about but also had servants that might be able to clean up these sorts of things anyway. The drider skittered toward Dasin, staying behind her and leaning in close enough to whisper into her ear.

"You think yourself worthy of knowing my name?" she murmured to the horned woman, a rising sense of malice in her voice. "The only ones who know my name are either in my service... or I leave them out in the wastelands as empty husks to rot in the heat... You are neither."

With a quick flick of her spinnerets skyward, the drider shot another strand of web toward the ceiling, hoisting herself up and looking straight down at the group from above. While they might not be the most easily intimidated group she had come across--by the divines, there was a dragon!--she felt that it might be in her best interest to find at least one person in this group that she did not truly despise, one person that she did not want to kill...

...but that was becoming more and more difficult by the minute.

Kor


"Fah! We get it! Everyone's strong! Ancestor's bones, can we all stop swinging our dicks around?" The words burst out of Kor's mouth before he could stop them. Five minutes in and half the group were squabbling like children. "Twenty eight years of age and I feel like the ancient in the room" he thought. He placed himself firmly underneath the spider-woman on the ceiling, crossed his arms and glared up at her. "Miss Unworthy-of-my-Name. Here's mine for free. Kor Secret-Fire. Big bloody deal. Now, you want to do something useful or do you want to pick a fight with Baby Dragon over there? And you!" he whirled to the dragon girl. "We get that you can fart lightening. Now act your age."

He sighed and composed himself. "My lady, my lords" he directed towards the three in charge. "Forgive my outburst and I thank you for your introduction. As I said, my name is Kor." he gave a quick bow and continued "If you really mean to do as you say, then my talents are yours. Now shall we please continue?"

One more glare at the squabbling pair.

"Without further interruption?"

Charnel


Charnel sighed in annoyance. "Perhaps we can determine who shall join us in a different way, rather then have everyone explain who they are, we simply do the jobs that have been given to us. I say we split off into two groups. I say Yuki shall take Dasin, Aiden, and this Skurge fellow to assist the village, while I shall take Venom's embrace, Hayato, and the Ghostman to take out the magi. I believe that Aiden should be able to handle the goblin's easily, while Venom's Embrace should be able to sneak us in, where we should be able handle a magi." Personally, he felt that there was just so many people entering at once, but he guessed that couldn't be helped. He hoped that his plan would be accepted. A single magi should be easy for him if he was backed up, and Aiden's true form should be terrifying enough to scare off the goblins for a while.

While he spoke, he was annoyed by Venom's Embrace, who seemed to be enjoying herself as she put webs all over the ceiling and whispering in Dasin's ear. What really surprised Charnel, well, not really, he didn't care much, was that Hayato returned. He never truly got to know the man while he remained, Charnel was far too busy in other matters, but he was under the impression that he was looking for revenge against someone. He wasn't sure exactly who it was, or who died, but he dimly remembered that she was a cripple. Meanwhile, the goblin, Skurge, was somewhat bizarre. Something was... Familiar about it. He decided to think about it later, when he wasn't trying to figure out a plan of action.

SKURGE:

Skurge seemed somewhat disinterested at the driders words to the minotaur woman, it was all pointless chatter about not knowing someones name, nothing of any interest to him, though Kor's comments from his outburst on the other hand, made the diminutive mutant chortle nastily until he finished most of his exchange.
"Skurge like ghostie-man, he is funny about other world-takers. Skurge thinks names are nothing special anyways, they just easier than calling spider-lady, a spider-lady. Wait, Skurge not wave his manhood around, you would definitely notice if Skurge's manhood was present for all to see!", he babbled cheerfully then laughed dirtily at his last comment.

Something then clicked with Skurge, causing him to go on an unprovoked rant;
"Wait, then lizard-smell girl is a dragon? It doesn't make sense! Dragon-girl does not have great scaly wings, great scaly head, or well great scaly anything! Dragon-girl too little to be a dragon too, dragons are the size of this castle! Well, Skurge think so, but they are definitely big! Not like tiny-ass 'dragon' here."
He then proceed to scamper over to the 'young' woman, sniffing around her in suspicion, as if he was a hunting hound discovering a rather promising looking burrow.

The goblin then frowned in disappointment when he heard Charnel announced that Hayato would be assisting with taking out a magi, meaning that he would not have the satisfaction of maiming a odd breed of human, until the rest of the sentence finally registered inside.
"So skeleton-in-a-dress, wants Skurge to kill goblins for a village Skurge doesn't even know?" he asked quizzically, "Including helpless goblin children and women? For world-taker that Skurge barely met?"
He pondered for a few moments before giving an ominous laugh and adding; "Sounds like Skurge will be happy working with world-takers with an offer so soon! Skurge get first pick of weapons though, or else Skurge get first pick of stabbing person who try to take weapon."

AIDEN


Aiden looked up from her book as the Ghostman started babbling. Good thats one person that doesnt like her, but she wasnt liking his attitude. Suppressing the urge to growl at Kora she listened to Charnel and his plan. The Goblins caught her attention for once long ago there were known as treasure holder's to the dragons. She had plan to make a trip to the East bound clan, for their high activity, hopping to find something of use to her.

"Excuse me Lord Charnel but if i may ask which clan of Goblins are we going to? I know there is a big clan in the East but i dont know if they have been causing trouble or is it just a small rogue clan" Aiden asked stoically her bright gold eyes not leaving the bone man. Then she turned to Kora, her expression-less feature's not giving away her dislike of his comment. She had nothing against the man, the one comment just annoyed her. The un-named spider woman seemed to be having a pissing contest with everyone included Aiden and it didnt help the matter that Aiden had contributed. She silently scolded herself.

"And sir Kora i do not fart lightning nor do i have a prick to fling around" a smile twitched at her plump lips. Sure it was annoying but it was a pretty funny comment, then she turned back to Charnel hoping he or Yuki would be able to answer her. Then Skurge said something about her being to small to be a dragon and she gave him a soft smile.

Alauniira



Everyone started to throw "concern" at the drider--how dare she think herself better than the others! How dare she withhold her name from them! She just smirked as she hung from the ceiling; they would never know the things that the head of an assassins' guild had to do to protect her mystique, and yet they thought of it as insolence? The ghostman--Kor, he had called himself "for free"--seemed rather irritated at the rate things were progressing now. While the drider did actually agree with him, she remaining dangling ominously from the ceiling, watching and waiting for something to happen next.

The others that resided in the castle, especially the demon lord himself, seemed interested and surprised by the return of this Hayato fellow. While this was an unexpected turn of events, it seemed enough of a distraction at this time. She would have to keep an eye on this fellow, see why in fact he was so important in the group's eyes.

The necromancer, Charnel, began to speak up, if only to silence the rest of the room. There were two missions that needed to be accomplished--one involving the slaughter of an entire goblin tribe, the other involve some water magi. Of course, the dragon and the bloodthirsty goblin would be dragged along to the goblin stronghold; they were the ones that could easily do the most damage in an area, along with the demon lord and the horned woman as back-up. The drider, on the other hand, was to continue with the lich, the bitter ghostman, and this Hayato character to visit the magi and see what exactly was wrong.

...not that she thought it made any difference. If she was going to help in the rule of this new world, she needed allies... Magi were always interesting allies, but she was in the killing business...

Dasin, on the other hand, did not seem to want to needlessly slaughter throngs of goblins. She seemed more interested in the magi. At this point, the drider did not care who she was going to be stuck with--the others she accompanied would think her annoying and immature at best and hate her at worst. It did not matter at all to her; as long as the job was completed and she was compensated accordingly--perhaps by the demon lord himself, if fortune smiled on her--she would do the job assign to her.

As Yuki made his way over toward the goblin to present him with a gift, the drider noticed him looking around, double-checking the area around him. Was something amiss after all? She smirked inwardly at the thought of a demon lord being afraid of something, of anything at all. If they were as fearsome as the stories claimed, why care?

In the middle of her pondering, the drider felt a small ping inside her mind. She closed her eyes and lowered herself to the ground once more before wordlessly scurrying off through the main hall once again and out into the open. If the others wished to follow her, that was all well and good; however, they would have a more difficult time than she attempting to scale the wall to meet with the one who requested a contact.

Quick as could be, the drider scaled the wall and found herself atop Castle Yuki. There stood inside one of the guard towers a male drow clad in blackened armor, white hair struggling to fly out from underneath a dark hood, red eyes closing for a brief moment before bowing his head in a respectful manner.

"Rise, Ra'ditzz," the drider commanded. The drow did as he was told, opening his eyes and staring up at the spider-woman. "What news do you have?"

"Lord Varkas of the Wastes has received your message," Ra'ditzz explained in a level voice. "His paranoia is getting the better of him now, and he has deployed troops to the south of his castle to find anyone that may know of such treachery in his walls."

The drider smirked. "Good. Varkas was always a jumpy one..." She brushed the hair out of her eyes, all five focusing solely on her drow agent. "What of the north? Any news from them?"

"They are doing as you ask, Mistress," Ra'ditzz replied. "Two agents were able to infiltrate the major assassin's guild to the north and slaughter their leader in cold blood. The organization hit a rough patch when they were unable to elect a leader from potential candidates, and reports tell me that their self-destruction is imminent."

The drider nodded, finding it harder to supress the grin that threatened to break out across her face. "Things seem to be going according to plan, then..."

Ra'ditzz looked back up at the drider, the same stoic look across his face. "Mistress, I think you should reconsider this venture of yours with these people. Exposing yourself to this many people feels like a trap."

The drider sighed and closed her eyes. "Ra'ditzz, I appreciate your concern; however, if this opportunity plays itself out as I imagine, well... the reward truly outweighs the risk. Besides, only a fool would think they could go toe-to-toe with the Dark Whisper... even if that fool is a dragon..." Her voice suddenly grew cold and spiteful.

"Mistress, take these blades--they are enchanted and will help protect you in the event that your abilities fail you." Ra'ditzz handed the drider two daggers that seemed to eat the light around the two of them.

Even with the backhanded remark, the drider accepted the gifts and placed them on her person. "May you move with the silence of shadows," she nodded and bowed her head toward her agent.

"And may your mark burn with the fury of venom, Mistress." Ra'ditzz bowed his head before turning toward the other side of the castle and running across the roof before climbing down the back wall. The drider smirked at the thought of Ra'ditzz trying to play the role of protector--while his ability as an assassin were nothing to sneeze at, his logistical manipulation and his network of spies was a more integral part of her operation. With the blades now in her possession, she felt that now even she could take any one of them in that castle.

She climbed over the side of the castle toward the gate once again, crawling quickly down the side. Ra'ditzz had been right, after all--she was making herself all-too-visible. If this venture paid off like she thought it might, though, then it could potentially make her one of the most powerful creatures in the world.

"Time to wait for the stragglers, I suppose..." the drider muttered to herself as she made herself comfortable in the front hall of the castle. All she had to do now was wait--good things came to those who were patient, after all.
