The Demon Hunt

The Demon Hunt

0 INK

Unknown to most people, the world is ruled by demons. But thanks to an experiment, a group of people with both a human soul and an implanted demon soul may be able to save us, provided they can stay out of trouble and work together.

2,817 readers have visited The Demon Hunt since LookingAtPerks created it.

Introduction

Many people believe the world is normal and ordinary. That demons and magic do not exist. But that is not true. The truth is, demons have been here for a long time. They are human souls that refused to die, instead wanting what they desire so much and being so evil and desperate that they either do not care who they hurt to get it or even would enjoy it even more if they did hurt people, that they return as demons instead. Demons have human forms, and demon forms. They can also possess people. They run everything with influence and power, from Religions to Corporations to Governments. They could be anywhere and everywhere, but one group that knows about them still fights them to this day. They are known as Vanguard, the last defenders of humanity.

Vanguard is a secret group of humans who know about demons and magic, and even try to harness the latter to defeat the former. However, demons are powerful, and can also use magic, so defeating them is difficult. However, with the help of Dr. Eisenhorn, a brilliant doctor who also is a master magical user with the Vanguard, discovered a way to create new weapons, new warriors that could face the demons one on one...and win. And they would be known as the Demon Hunters.

You see, he found a way to not only capture demon souls of demons they defeated, but to also implant them in newborn infants safely. Due to the youth of the body and the fact the human mind had not truly developed yet, the demon soul had no way of controlling the body. And without that, the demon soul could not look for food. You see, demons feast on human souls to survive. Some only need to feast every three months on a single soul, while others need to eat one every week. And the demon soul knows that if it devours the human soul, it would starve to death. The only way to preserve itself is to slowly siphon off energy from the human soul to survive. And that is how it, for a change, was dominated by the human soul. The human soul, even before the infant reached one year of age, used this to control the demon soul, like using drugs to control a drug addict. The human soul learned how to suppress the demon soul, harness its magical power with its own magical potential, and as a result, gifted the child with magical powers.

Of course, there were side affects. Some good, some bad. The children, as they grew up, developed an abhorrence to evil, having lived with it for all their lives. They hate those that commit horrible atrocities, and they hate demons unconditionally, committed to the Vanguard's Goal of fighting the demons. However, they also developed tendencies of aggression, or a habit of stealing things, or a number of other personality traits that were not exactly good. Both of these possibilities were expected though, unlike the third. The demon soul, despite being dominated by the human one, still had a voice. Could still speak to them. But that was not what they did not expect. What they did not expect was that by having these two souls in the same body, the sort of fusion they have (though they are technically still two separate souls) would affect the demon's morals. The demon souls gained some morals, and became disgusted with the actions of their kind. They are still not always the best influence on their human partners (though there have been some exceptions where the demon soul became extremely moral, for a demon), but they are always committed to the fight against demons as well, often appearing as spirits or voices either in their head or from a summoned weapon or item to guide, help, or just speak with them. They helped teach the Demon Hunters how to harness their powers, summon their Demonic Weapon, and use them to fight demons.

Demons have four physical weaknesses, other then their dependency on human souls. They cannot be out in sunlight in their demon form. They will be burned by pure water exposed to pure sunlight while a sacred prayer was said over it, and be forced to revert to their demon form. While most weapons do not affect them, they will always be affected by magic. And finally, they have one spot somewhere on their body that will be affected by any weapon they would normally be immune to, and be extra vulnerable to any attack that would normally affect them.

Demons are also usually power hungry, and egotistical. They believe themselves greater then everyone else, and only fear demons they know they have no way of beating. But they are not stupid. They pride themselves not just on their strength and power, but by how clever they are. And most demons, or at least the higher up ones, are smart enough to know they can be taken down. Especially when they learned of the Demon Hunter project four years ago, and destroyed the facility. Unfortunately for them, they still did not learn who the demon hunters are. Still, they are not so careless. They have taken steps to make sure that the Vanguard will never be able to publicly expose them, from having a cult created that lurks in the shadows and kills people who witness demon attacks on the premise "None may gaze upon the glory of the great masters", with enough fictional religious talk to make them seem crazy, to using the media to dismiss them as crazy and lock them up in psych facilities.

So tell me, Demon Hunter. The demons are searching for you. Most if not all of you are still only children, very few even teenagers yet. But now you are being hunted, and we must not stay on the defensive for even a second. Training is over now, it is time for war. It is time for the Demon Hunt we have told you all was coming, though we expected it to be when you were older. But the war begins now, and so I must know, are you ready?

Anselm sensed a presence coming up, something he immediately recognized as another hunter, almost instinctively. He snaps up the card from the hall monitor's hand and pockets it, then turned to Zero as he approached. He crooks his head to the side as he looks down at Zero. "Geez... ya look like ya been sleepin'n a broom closet," he mutters. When he hears that he is to be in gym, he crooks his mouth into a smirk, ignoring Yamir shuddering at hearing that math and science follows. Afterall, everyone adores an athlete. "Jus' got back, but startin' wit' gym... now that's jus' fine."

When he got to the locker room he caught wind of an odd presence but decided to ignore it. It wasn't a demon for all he could tell, and as such, probably not worth his time. The other students looked at him, befuddled and a bit concerned. The only thing missing was some kind of hook or cleaver. He shrugs off the glares and just went and got dressed for whatever gym had in store to throw his way, more amusing how literal that'd turn out to be. He was certainly out of place, taller than quite a few of the others, as well as more muscular than the typical student. Without his hat, his mangled hair just kind of does whatever it wants.

As he gets in with Zero's team, scratching the back of his neck awkwardly he catches that weird presence again, a lot stronger this time. He definitely feels it as it zips by and nearly strikes Zero that makes him nearly jump. "The hell was that," Yamir exclaims, popping out from Anselm's shadow and slaps his hands to his cheeks. "Demon expulsion magic in a dodgeball game?! I mean c'mon! That's... that's..."

"Exhilaratin'," Anselm says with a wide toothy grin, the game now held his full attention.

"Oh gee, here I had almost forgotten I was fused to a MADMAN, I mean geez," Yamir responds tugging at his own hair. "Anna, talk some sense into my partner here, he's doing that thing again where he does stupid stuff!"

"Relax, we jus' gotta out ol' Magical Trevor here before he outs Zero permanently," he says confidently as he cracks his knuckles.

Another ball zips by, it feels like a fire, grazing past him with its heat. Yamir seems somewhat impressed by Anselm's sudden concern for the well being of another. "That is... strangely thoughtful of you!"

"Sure, it'd 'flect poorly if one of my peers gets dunked in a school gym," he says, before dodging a ball that flew towards him, breaking his concentration. This one was normal, however. He looks towards the student who tossed it and he points a finger at him and takes hold of a ball putting it to the side as if it were a gun in an old western duel. The student, already regretting his life decisions, suddenly feels a chill run down his spine taking a mad dash to the side. With a snap throw Anselm sends the ball flying in his prey's direction hitting him in the back and the kid over-dramatically flops onto the floor with an "AH MAAAAAN!"

Anselm holds out his hands and struts cockily, and for a moment Yamir grinned as the students took notice until he realized they had just taken out a norm from play causing him to raise a brow. "Eh... didn't you say you were going to take out the magician?"

"Didn't say I weren't gon' feed the crowd a bit as well," he responds with a smug shrug. "An' I think I gave em another target t' worry 'bout."

Lance continued to practice with his guitar until he groaned and stopped playing altogether, it was getting tedious trying to memorize all the chords and getting his timing right. Of course he did not want to fail in front of the audience once they perform for the school but he had at least a few more weeks to get it perfect. Of course the question that could be asked was why on earth did he volunteer for a job like this? The short answer was he was forced to do it.

Since he was considered a king of delinquents in the school since he was so lazy all the time and seemed to not care for his studies the school decided to force the job on him since no one else volunteered for the position. He would have rejected the offer but the teachers made some subtle jabs about holding him back a year and he accepted it once he realized that they were serious. "At least once this is over I can graduate and stop cramming my head full of knowledge that I am not going to even use. Of course I can show the other hunters that I have some mad skills with a guitar, then I can probably perform on the streets and get some money just by playing music. I guess this is not that bad of a punishment..." Lance chuckled to himself as he encourage himself to pick the guitar again and began to practice it again, with a little more effort put into it.

While Lance practiced, he could feel a sudden rise in power. He began to sense a very faint trace of magic in the air and although he could have just concluded that it came from the other demon hunters, however no one he knew has the ability to use magic only tap into their powers. Whatever it was he could sense it coming from the gym, maybe he should take a look just in case but it could be resolved by the other demons hunters near the area. That and getting into more trouble was not what he wanted right now.

Lance just sighed and continued to practice, rather down since a fight sounded a little fun right now. Great, if he continued to think like this he would unintentionally get excited for the fight with Rue. Well he would still have to fight will almost everything he had so maybe exciting himself for the fight would get him ready? Lance just groaned and leaned back hard in his chair accidentally hitting the back of his head on the wall and causing people looking in his direction to burst out laughing. That made 2 self made accidents in a row, at this rate he was going to send himself to the school nurse before the day was out.

Danny was not happy.

Why was he unhappy?

The homework he "acquired" turned out to be planted on the smart student by ANOTHER kid who got it wrong.

This did not make Danny happy. And he was already feeling like shit cause of yesterday. Plus, when he heard it was dodgeball time in gym, he flashed back to the Nightmare Tower....he saw thigns there he would rather forget. Still, he looked back at Zero, to see if he was okay. He was, but then, he just barely avoided a supercharged dodgeball. "Holy shit, what the hell?"

He managed to dodge the next one, and he spotted the source, that new kid Jacob Bell. Barry appeared next to him. "Careful, taht kid is a magician, and it looks like he thinks your possessed....by me".

"Well, he isnt totally wrong" Danny mentioned. Suddenly, he summoned some strength. "But now, looks like we get to compete after all. Who can survive the magicians attacks!"

Barry shook his head. "This will not end well".

It was already too late though, because Danny was all fired up. What this meant, however, was still up for grabs.

(Sorry, couldn't do any more, writers block)

Daisy

As the clock struck it's the final minute class was over, time to start class. Packing her books she picked up her bag and begun on her way to class. Banished from her thoughts was the topic of her school work as all she could seem to think about was the new demon hunter in town. She wondered if she'd get along better with him than she had with the others. She wasn't on particularly bad footing with any of them but she couldn't say she was their best pals. Zero and Danny were best pals though they were rivals. It was a friendly sort of competition, something to be expected from boys their age. She liked to think she was more mature and perhaps it was true but there was something to be envied in their bond. Not like hers and Rue's which was... well...

That sort of train of thought led to remind her that Rue was in the hospital. After the injuries sustained from the last couple of floors she seriously needed treatment. It still tugged at her internally that Rue's condition was likely her doing. Thinking about it she could only wonder how she must of felt about her. She was able to read her mind but never to the extent of revealing anyone's true feelings about anyone. She could never really decipher just how Rue truly saw her. Given Rue's rather violent nature due to the demon within her reading her thoughts mostly revealed things that worried her about Rue's mental health.


On one hand Daisy was reticent to interact at depth with Rue but on the other she was rather guilty about not seeing her. She took part of the blame on herself as despite Rue's ways she didn't deem herself a particularly good friend to any of them. Though demon hunting was by no means easy it was too easy to use that as an excuse to remain aloof when she could be more present in their lives. It was a constant struggle for her just to try and not be forgotten.

Taking the time she had to spare before math class started she decided she would try and get in touch with her. Navigating the river of students that clogged the halls every class change she found a corner to stand in so she wasn't knocked over while she focused and tried to tune in with her telepathy. It was difficult to try and close out the sea of both voices and thoughts but with her mind put to the task and the fact that she knew Rue well enough she was able to pick her mind out at the hospital.

Hey Rue. She spoke into her mind. How have you been? Feeling any better?

Anselm continued to show off, dodging by leaning left, right, and completely leaning backwards. He could feel the ones shot by Jacob, even the missing ones sent a shock through his system. But it didn't scare him, no, it thrilled him. He thought the first day returning to school would be nothing but sour looks and the boring droning of teachers. The very thought of being a normal student was laughable. It was like a... public hunt of sorts. Just without the demon and... use of abilities. A challenging handicap.

He shot glances at both Danny and Zero, feeling something... different about them. They have achieved something he has yet to, even in his seniority. He wouldn't accept this... he couldn't, the very thought...

"Hey hey! Long time no see ya ol' Bart," Yamir cries out, popping up from Anselm's shadow, arms crossed, casting a wide grin. "Heard you guys had a hell of a time down here... all we had was getting frostbite from chasing cannibalistic Canadians in the freezing north... must say I'm green with envy." His head momentarily ignites with a green hair flame.

Anselm was fixated, it was a competition now in his mind, a game of field dominance. And he wasn't going to lose to anyone. He smirked as he picked up a ball, and beckoned Jacob to take a shot. To everyone else he was just being cocky, which was in a good part true, but he was finally fixated on taking the magician out of the game first, before Danny.

"Ey newbie, c'sider this my welcoming gift!" He draws back, giving it some athletic gusto as he sends the ball flying. He didn't expect it to hit, but he didn't intend to dodge the return shot either. He knew of another way to score an out, and it would hurt. Too bad it won't leave a scar...

"What... t-that look, that tone, could it be..? Oh this is just like old times," Yamir's tone is brimming with enthusiasm as his partner appears to be having fun for a change, especially since it was just a grab for power. "It is so good to be back!"
