When he arrived in the world of the living he began to explore his power over humans and found how fragile the human mind really was. Many of the world’s tyrants were influenced by him. He made Hitler hate the Jews and set the man on his course to kill them, although Nihilus wasn’t the only Demon influencing Hitler. Nihilus found that influence over the mind doesn’t always set things in motion the way he would like, he soon found that he had to personally handle a few deaths and that’s when he found how to his powers in a different way. Instead of mentally affecting people he found the power cause physical pain to them by ways of Demonic Magic, from Fireballs to telekinesis, he has caused many deaths and pinned the murders on other people to incite wars and rivalries.





❝ Let me show you, what the face of destruction looks like.❞

Nihilus


Nihilus has been around this one little girl no older then ten all day, whispering in her head and telling her what to do. The weak willed child was easy enough to manipulate into doing deeds that was completely out of her usually sweet character. The first thing he made her do was try and stab her teacher with a pencil, the original plan was to have her murder her class mates. Sadly, the staff had contacted her parents and put her in a room where there was nothing Nihilus could make her use for his evil doing. So he began to formulate his plan, and growing bored of being silent he decided to interact with the girl when they got to her house.

"What came over you, Samantha?" The girls Mother asks in a sweet and sensitive tone that makes Nihilus gag. "I don't know mommy, I don't even remember doing it." The little girl says. "Oh for... Samantha , don't play games with us! We just want to know what happened." Her Father asks in a harsh tone but he tries to make sound softer when his wife gives him a look, which causes Nihilus to burst out laughing and rolling in mid air where he floats around to watch what unfolds. "But Daddy! I'm telling the-" Her Father cuts her off with a wave of his hand. "Just... Go to bed Sam, we will talk about this in the tomorrow." After the father says that he walks into the Kitchen and Samantha goes to her room.

Nihilus grins as he comes up with an idea on how he can salvage this little mission, although the spoils wont be as large as he originally hoped to receive. He follows the girl upstairs to her room where he finds her pouting. "Mommy and Daddy don't believe me." She says to no one. "Now i'm in trouble for something i didn't even do! I hate when Mommy and Daddy don't believe me!" Nihilus giggles as he gets ready to appear to the girl, but first he takes a moment to shake himself loose, as if he was getting ready to put on a big act. Which in fact, he was.

Nihilus materializes in her room, but he is only visible to her. If her parents were to walk in they wouldn't notice him, and if they were to get to close to him they would just walk through him. Samantha looks up and gasps. "Wh-Who are you?" She asks more curious than scared. With a big friendly grin on his face, Nihilus does a grand, over dramatic bow where one hand swings to the side with a graceful sweeping motion. "My name, is Nigel the Clown. And i am here to make your day." He pauses and stands up straight and reaches both his hands upward and sparkles shower around him. "Brighter!" Samantha and a smile spreads across her face. "Dear Samantha, you must promise me one thing, you cannot let your parents know i'm here, or my magic will fade and your day will darken once again. Do you promise?" The girl nods enthusiastically. Nihilus jumps ups and down and claps his hand. "Oh good." He says as a malicious smile. "Then let the party begin!"

After two hours of entertaining the child with magic spells, and engaging in her boring game of house with her dolls the parents finally go to sleep and Nihilus stands up. "Now it's time for my final trick. I am going to help you and your loving parents into true happiness, you will never fight with them, you will never cry because of them, you will always be happy. But i cannot do it without you." Nihilus waves his hand and the girls face goes blank. "Come sweet child." A small, ornate knife appears in front of Samantha. "Take the Knife, and follow me into my garden of shadows." He walks backwards out of the door with the girl following him as he swishes his colorful cape around. "C'mon c'mon, hurry. I don't have all night!" He snaps as he stops by her parents room. "Come on, in here." He gestures at the door with his hand and it quietly swings open.

"Now, go in there, and slit their throats." He whispers in the girls ear with a grin that looks far too large as he has a smile painted on his face, giving him and even more demonic look when he smiles. "Go one, and bring them Happiness." He says as he places a hand on her back and gently pushes her forward. After the nudge she walks forward and climbs on top of the bed and sits between her parents. She places the knife on her mothers neck, who opens her eyes and before she could say anything Samantha quickly swipes the knife across the skin. The cut spurt blood with each heart beat, and each beat the distance the blood travels becomes shorter and shorter. "Hehehehehe, very good. Now your Father." The girl repeats the process in much the same way and Nihilus breaks his hold over her and flicks on the lights. "M-Mommy? D-Daddy?" She says as she recognizes their faces then she looks down at her dress which is covered in blood and she screams and Nihilus laughs.

"What did you do?!" She screams at Nihilus, who reacts with a mock looks of shock. "Oh my dear, How could you think i would do something like this?" He laughs as she looks back at her parents. "Of course i did this, I made you do this. But it's just like i promised You will always be happy and you will never fight with your parents again nor will you ever cry because of them." He can't hold back his laughter as she sobs but he quickly grows serious. "But don't worry my dear, everybody dies. You just helped them along their way. And now, you will join them, as your soul is filled to the brim with sorrow and pain, it will make devouring it more pleasant." He snaps his fingers and the girl is engulfed in flames and three smoke like tendrils seep off the bed and go into Nihilus. With his act over he leaves the house as it burns down behind him.

As he was walking he feels a sensation that he hasn't felt in a long time and he sneers. "Reapers."

Nihilus


Reapers, the only thing Nihilus considers to stand in his way of total destruction. He hated them just for being alive, although they do have their uses. Over his lifetimes Nihilus has had many enemies with other demons, most of those demons were killed by the Reapers or Nihilus himself. But playing with them when they are new to the world is a blast! They are so confused and disoriented to the things that they are just now seeing, it makes them fun to play with. After trying to figure out where they are he learns that most seemed to have found each other and are in groups. But there is one all alone and Nihilus thought it would be fun to try and thin their numbers right from the get go. Maybe he would just knock this one around for a bit though, the longer they live the bigger the chance they take down the 'King'... or Nihilus, but that was a chance he was willing to risk.

With a cackle he fades from his current location in the middle of a busy street with a bright flash of light, resulting in numerous car crashes. He arrives near the lone Reaper and hears that the Reaper is female and obviously talking to someone, a human. He only hears the tail end of the conversation "...-No, I know he killed it because he told me he did. It's insane I know, but you have to believe me. I don't know why I even told you...It's entirely mental.". Obviously talking about a lesser demon some 'he' killed. Was it the Void Reaper? No if it was he would have stayed, someone else helped this fledgling of a Reaper. Stepping out of the shades with his usual grin on his face he confronts the Reaper. "Hehehehehe, You're right my dear. It is completely and utterly MENTAL." He says in a mocking tone, letting out a laugh after he says Mental. "That is, it would be if it wasn't entirely true. I'm assuming you are talking about something not of this world? You are aren't you? Something... DEMONIC?" He puts heavy emphasis on the last word.

"So." He says as he levitates off the ground and lays on his side with his hand supporting his head as if he was lying on some invisible couch. "Tell me, what did it feel like, encountering your first Demon? Wait, wait, no let me guess? You screamed? I bet you did." He said as he lazily floats around. "But that was just a lesser demon, something you would easily be able to wipe out....if you were more... in tune with yourself." He says with a insane chuckle. "I, however." He says as his eyes glow gold for a split second. "I would be alot harder to handle!" He says as he quickly shifts into a standing position. "It's too bad you had to run into a Human, he might not make it." He says with feigned sadness as a circle of fire surround his feet and the air crackles with electricity. "Now, lets play!" He says as he fires a gout of fire at the Reaper.

[Kylar]

Image Image Image


"It's lovely to meet you Kylar. My name is Merinda, but seriously just called me Meri." the girl spoke in such a calm manner that it relaxed Ky even more. He smiled at her. "Okay Meri." he said followed by his next question. He knew she would either lie or not want to talk about it, but it was worth a shot. However, the following words that came out of her mouth completely baffled Ky. "Okay, so you're going to think I am totally insane, but I have to tell someone what I have just seen. I was walking towards the park when this huge - and I mean huge - dog burst out of nowhere and started chasing me. Except it wasn't just a normal dog. There was something...demonic about it. It just didn't feel right. So I ran and obviously screamed...because it was completely scary. Anyway, it nearly caught me, but just as I thought it was going to sink its teeth into me, this huge weight pushed me forwards. But it wasn't the dog...well not in that sense...It was the dog, but it had turned to ash. And there was this great man stood over me and he said all this confusing this about reincarnations and not realising who I was...As well as a debt for saving me. I think he killed...No, I know he killed it because he told me he did. It's insane I know, but you have to believe me. I don't know why I even told you...It's entirely mental."

Ky paused at her story he was completely speechless, his eyes gaped open and were completely locked on her. A demon dog would explain the black goo and ooze all around the floor, but a demon dog? seriously. Ky had a few ideas in mind, the girl probably went to a party at which she got heavily drugged, or she was being extremely sarcastic and that was a signal for Ky to leave. I mean come-on, there is no way that it could be true?... Could it?

Before Ky could even utter a signal word he noticed a figure stepping out of the shade. The figure, surprisingly enough, was a clown. A clown?! at this time of the day in New York City? Ky was surely going insane as well. "Hehehehehe, You're right my dear. It is completely and utterly MENTAL." When Meri shouldv'e been the one speaking Ky did in he stead. "Who the hell are you?" he said angrily. The clown said something about being a demon and more crazy things about demons. "It's too bad you had to run into a Human, he might not make it." Ky's face turned red, who was this clown insulting him. A moment later the clown was surrounded by fire, then he began throwing fire at Meri. Ky had to act, he knew not what was going on, but Meri... she seemed so helpless, so confused with whats going on. He had no time to think, he just launched himself in-front of Meri to shield her from the fire ball.

Meri's heart sank low into her stomach when she saw the disbelief on Kylar's face, as he stared at her open-mouthed and wide-eyed. It was evident that he didn't believe her. And in all honesty, who would? The story was completely ridiculous and even she was beginning to doubt the whole thing. Perhaps she was ill and this was all just a hallucination, created in her mind because something was seriously wrong. But it had felt so real. The hot breath on the back of her bare legs, the intensity of the weight, the acidic tone of the mysterious man. It had to be real. However at the same time it was utterly insane. Blinking back tears that had suddenly welled in her eyes, she shook her head slightly. All of this was too much.

"Hehehehehe, You're right my dear. It is completely and utterly MENTAL." Shivers crept swiftly up Meri's spine as a chilling sound filled her ears. Laughter followed the words and it made her skin crawl with anticipation and fear. Slowly, she turned her back on Kylar and faced a new horror. A gasp caught in her throat, as she stepped backwards. Before them stood the most horrific sight she had ever laid eyes on. Even more so than the demonic dog that had chased her into the park. It was a clown, though not the normal happy clowns that roamed Central park during the day time. This one seemed looked as though darkness itself had twisted him into something indescribable. She hated clowns as it was, but to see one that looked pure evil caused her throat to constrict in fear and her heart to thump wildly again. "That is, it would be if it wasn't entirely true. I'm assuming you are talking about something not of this world? You are aren't you? Something... DEMONIC? So..."

It was true. He had confirmed her story and he hadn't even been present during the events. A sense of relief washed through her, only to be replaced by terror. His tone was mocking and full of amusement, which only meant one thing. He was playing with her. It was obvious he knew what had happened and now was toying with her. Gulping down a lump in her throat, she opened her mouth to speak, but before she could he began to levitated. A jolt shot through her heart. Was anything else frightening going to happen to her tonight? It seemed as those every single otherworldly being had set out to seek her out. Wait, did she now believe in those kinds of things? A memory itched at the back of her mind, begging for her attention. But she couldn't focus on that. She had to keep her eyes and mind glued onto the clown.

"Tell me, what did it feel like, encountering your first Demon? Wait, wait, no let me guess? You screamed? I bet you did." Meri's eyes did not leave him as he floated easily around, the mocking tone still in place. A surge of anger welled in her chest and she clenched her fists at her fists. "But that was just a lesser demon, something you would easily be able to wipe out....if you were more... in tune with yourself. I would be alot harder to handle!It's too bad you had to run into a Human, he might not make it. Now, lets play!"

Several things happened at once and Meri watched in complete shock. Suddenly the clown was surrounded by flames, which did not engulf him as she believed they would. He proceeded to throw a fireball towards them. Without time to think, she stood frozen on the spot. Until Kylar dove in front of her, ultimately protecting her face the fireball. Her eyes widened in amazement and horror as he attempted to shield her body with his. Quickly, she grabbed him around the waist, twisted and pushed the pair of them to the floor. The fireball sailed over their heads, grazing Meri's right shoulder. Crying out in agony, she sunk to the ground as the ball of flaming substance collided with the tree behind and it burst into magnificent flames.

"Always one for theatrics, weren't you Nihilus?" The words slipped from Meri's tongue easily, as she pulled herself to her feet. Her face had darkened, her eyes narrowed to thin slits and she regarded him coolly. The voice was not her, but one of a past reincarnation. "Typical of a stinking demon to attack an innocent human as well, but we'll put an end to that." Lifting her hands, she allowed a smirk to grace her features, shaking her head. "You've picked the wrong day to mess with the new Reaper Nilly...After this encounter, she'll begin to remember and then you'll be in trouble..." There was a sharp crackle that split the air and fast as anything a bolt of lightning shot from Meri's outstretched hands, towards the clown. Slumping forwards, the girl gasped, pain shooting across her chest from the fireball. Returning to herself, she looked up in surprise. What had she just done? She had spoken in a voice that was not her own...Nor were the memories that invaded her mind. Or were they? But she remembered the clown from...somewhere.

Without waiting to see the outcome of her attack, she snatched Kylar's hand and tugged him towards the gates. "Run." She urged him quickly, as she took off with him. Above them, the grey clouds rumbled and crackled dangerously.

It all took a mere second, no, a fraction of that. Kylar expected to be dead, to have breathed his last breath. Why would he let his pride overcome him, why would he risk his life for a girl he doesn't even know. Although something about that girl seemed interesting, he wanted to know more, heck she was even pretty. Kylar didn't like to fight, he liked to have fun and enjoy his time, clearly though after today, that wont be happening. In a split second Meri, who had previously seemed so scared and petrified, grabbed him and pushed him to floor. It was amazing how fast she moved, faster then he could ever imagine. Kylar couldn't move for a moment, even more so when the girl stood up and started talking. "Always one for theatrics, weren't you Nihilus? Typical of a stinking demon to attack an innocent human as well, but we'll put an end to that. You've picked the wrong day to mess with the new Reaper Nilly...After this encounter, she'll begin to remember and then you'll be in trouble..." Kylar looked up in awe, the voice coming from her mouth was surely not her's was it? and how had the scared Meri became so engulfed with fury and confidence? Kylar blinked, even in that one blink a-lot had happened, Meri shot a ray of light from her mind. Before Kylar could even open his mouth Meri grabbed Kylar and urged him towards the gate. [b]"Run." the words stuck. Kylar always had things to say, he would never let a conversation die, but this time he was completely speechless.

Kylar couldn't even look back, all he was worried about is looking forward, running away from that monstrosity that had just tried to kill the both of them. As he was running he was over cumbered with millions of questions, Kylar could run for hours on end, but he seemed breathless. He wanted to stop and ask, a part of him wished he hadn't come to save the girl, but another part was happy he did.

[Morgan]

Image Image Image Image





[font=candara]Morgan wanted to answer, truly he did, but he wasn't given any time to.

"Hear me, Void Reaper, and tremble. Your attempts to keep me from entering this world have failed, and I now know where you hide... This time, all of your order will fall, and none will survive... Prepare to be brought to justissssseeee...."

All of his clones dropped to their knees in agony and then vanished. It hurt. To have the ruler of all demons speak directly to you via your thoughts was not a pleasant experience at all. Morgan felt as though his head were going to explode, and his vison was red and hazy. He didn't notice at first, but his eyes were actually bleeding, causing him to appear as though he were crying blood.

And that was when he sensed it. Hell Hounds. A breed of some of the most powerful demons, and there were four of them. He made a quick mental count. Earth, Air, Water, and Fire were all at the base. Light he knew the location of thanks to Xaner, and Darkness he could sense. But he also felt two other precenses nearby as well, one emonic an one...human. No, don't let it be him...please... He thought, though he alreay knew exactly who it was. The blood-eye Reaper turned to Xander, saying, "Fine. You have your deal. It's not like I have much choice. But if you double-cross me..." He left the rest of that statement unfinished, knowing Xander knew exactly what he meant, and then, without waiting for the car to stop, Morgan phased through the back seat, landing in the middle of the street.

He wipe the blood away, slightly surprised to see it there, but otherwise ignored it. He made two copies of himself, sending one in the direction of the Hell Houns, hoping that they wouldn't split up, the other off in the direction of the Darkness Reaper, and the other to where Light was.

He turned a corner, and for the second time in about an hour, he nearly ran into someone. This time, however, this someone was a human male. A human male Morgan knew all too well, and quickly his anger grew almost too powerfull for him to control. If anything had happened to the boy, Morgan would have--

No, he couldn't think about that right now. The Reapers were the priority, not his... Morgan drew out his scythe, spinning it to dissolve a fireball thrown by the demon who was chasing after the Light Reaper and the human boy. Morgan calmed himself to the best of his ability, staring at Nihilus. "Man....I've seen some ugly demons in my time, but you sir...you just take the cake. Now...care to dance? Or has your master begun to call you back yet?"

Nihilus


Nihilus smiles as she lets out a cry of pain after she gets grazed in the shoulder and he watches as a tree behind them bursts into flames. He smiles as the girl speaks "Always one for theatrics, weren't you Nihilus?" Nihilus just giggles as she speaks in a voice not her own. "OOOOoooohhhh she's waking up now, THIS is going to be interesting."

"You've picked the wrong day to mess with the new Reaper Nilly...After this encounter, she'll begin to remember and then you'll be in trouble..." ...Nilly? The sound of electricity in the air makes Nihilus's ears twitch and preforms a back flip and does a hand stand as the lightning passes between his legs. He laughs as he kicks his legs around. "Hehehehe now that is what i was looking forward to!" He pushes himself into the air and after a flip he begins to fly towards the Reaper and Human but stops as a familiar face appears in front of him.

"YOU!" He says in anger. "Man....I've seen some ugly demons in my time, but you sir...you just take the cake. Now...care to dance? Or has your master begun to call you back yet?" Master? He thinks for a moment, then he feels it, the self proclaimed king of the void is awake and in New York. "I have no Master, i do as i please." He says in a high pitched,crazed voice. "Why would i call anyone, 'Master' when he will just end up dying?" He says in a deeper, darker voice. "I was wanting to play with a weakling for a while.... but if you want to play. THEN LETS PLAY!" He slams his hands into the ground and demonic looking spears made of out of darkness explode from the ground in a row, heading toward the Reaper.

Meri didn't even look back as she grasped Kylar's hand and pulled him with her through the darkened park. The acrid smell of smoke filled her nostrils and she choked, coughing as the tree continued to burn. But something caused her to halt in her dash across the grass towards the wrought-iron gate that looked before them. A feeling deep in her bones. There was something worse than the clown-faced demon lurking in the streets of New York. Something that made her shudder with fear and shook her deeply. What was it? Perhaps she would never know. Though a gut-feeling told her that she would find out back there, where another voice had entered the fray.

"Man....I've seen some ugly demons in my time, but you sir...you just take the cake. Now...care to dance? Or has your master begun to call you back yet?"

The confidence in the voice almost warmed Meri to her core. The guy, for it clearly was a guy's voice, was standing up to the evil-looking demonic clown. What was more, somehow she recognised the voice and the confident attitude. She had to go back. But she had Kylar to look out for, because he was surely involved in all of this now. Maybe he could escape. No-one would suspect a human.

"Look, I'm going back. You need to get out of here. This isn't your fight. But I cannot thank you enough for attempting to save my life twice." Without hesitation, she pulled him into a tight hug, resting her chin on his shoulder. "I've got to go back there. Something is calling me back." It felt as though she was magnetically drawn to the new-comer. Strange things were happening to her that evening and she couldn't even begin to explain any of them away. It was all a little too weird. Releasing Kylar, she smiled at him brightly. "Thank you Kylar."

Quickly, she turned on her heel and headed towards the clown and the new-comer, even though every fibre in her being screamed for her to get as far from the demon as possible.
