0 · 549 views · located in G'ael

a character in “The Multiverse”, originally authored by Weilacca, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Goes by the Alias: The Master

Image

Physical Description: Wears a gas mask connected to the chest via piping. Wears a tattered black lab coat with simple ripped jeans and shirt underneath. Has ruffled, uncared, medium length back hair. Skin is flaked and slowly decomposing but regenerating at the same time. Very weak and vulnerable.

Personality: Will be revealed over time.

Equipment: A gas mask and a large scythe, the scythe is usually carried via clips on his back. The scythe itself is placed upside down and the blade stretches about 2/3 the length of a human, the handle is a little taller than a human.

Abilities: The Master is a necromancer, he has the ability to bring the dead to life and under his control. The dead can be summoned from anywhere via symbols drawn on the floor. He is also dead himself and constantly uses his power to keep himself alive. The summoned dead must be within a certain distance from The Master and can either keep their memories and move by their own accord, but can be controlled by The Master at any time when needed. The dead can also act just like zombies where they only stick to their orders and cannot go by their own thoughts.
In order to summon the dead, The Master has to "claim" the body by placing paper symbols on their bodies for an hour.

Historical Background: Will be revealed.

So begins...

John wondered through the main street, humming to himself behind his gas mask. It puffed deeply with every breath he made, it sounded as if the mask was broken, or his lungs. He was holding his severed arm in his right hand, no blood was leaving his body as he plodded along. It was like he had no blood in his body at all, his body was discolored proving the point right. The empty arm of his black lab coat blew in the high winds caused by the arrival of some dragon thing.

John stopped and looked up at the Dragon of Death, it was a magnificent sight, and a magnificent being. This being was the kind of thing that John would look up to, both are beings of death after all. Behind his gas mask, his deteriorating mouth smiled as he heard the voice.

"My apologies, could you speak English? Please?" John spoke, not making the effort to shout up to the dragon. It was more of a joking around while talking to himself. Although, he was prepared for if the dragon reacted to him. Holding his severed arm into his lab coat, it moved on it's own and grabbed onto a roll of papers and ink.

The great dragon looked down, sensing another powerful being within his immediate vicinity. Then, without any warning, the Dragon suddenly dived straight down. Then his body turned into a strange goo-like substance that fell all around the being known as John Phage. This goop was made of pure shadow, and was tangible, however it would move away if John tried to touch it.

"Who might you be?" the dragon's voice asked. "I've spent a lot of time...everywhere, and have not seen you on this planet before." the voice said calmly.

The chaos that had been going on continued; people were still tormented by the shadow tendrils, everything was assaulted by wind, rain, and hail; and the lightning never stopped either. The next thing to happen would be a black mist that started to come out of the shadows. If inhaled, it would manipulate the darkness in people's hearts, and make them feel a very strong urge to start killing those around them by any means necessary.

"So this guy is speaking to me? I feel honored." John thought as he was surrounded by the strange goo and spoken to. John held his severed limb under his arm and used it to hold onto the paper as he wrote a few symbols on it, a regeneration spell developed by John himself. He then took the paper and stuck it to his severed arm, which was then slipped back into his sleeve and held in place for a moment. The arm regenerated, bones reattached, muscle fibers grew and nerve endings connected, finally the arm was connected to his body once more.

John then stared into the goo, knowing that where he was looking was the source of the dragon. He could easily see the life energy inside the dragon, along with the psychokinetic energy allowing the change of states and control of the weather. "I am The Master. I've just been... traveling, searching, killing. The usual. Nice to meet you, Death Dragon." John spoke out, a very insane smile occurred but was hidden behind the gas mask. Everything else occurring around John was ignored, even the black mist had no effect on the pseudo-life energy inside of John, and could not manipulate a being to kill when he already does.

Some of the goo around John started to collect itself into a large pile, forming a smaller version of the head of Draco, the Dragon of Death. Red eyes glowed like coals of the deepest and hottest pits of hell itself, and they narrowed as they looked at the man before them. The great Dragon was examining this being carefully, a low growl emanating from the bottom of his throat as he merely let out a breath.

"No one has called me the Death Dragon in 3.5 million years, since before I died the first time." Draco said. He sensed the necromancy magic of John, he knew what it could do, and needed that power himself, but he did not see exactly what he was looking for in John.

The great beasts head moved around John's body as if he were walking around the man, still just observing him with his narrowed eyes. "How do you know of me?" he asked calmly. "There are not many who know of me, not on this miserable little planet."

Out of the shadowy goo multiple figures rose, forming to look like actual people, skin-tone, clothing, hair, and all. There were roughly about fifteen faces, all perfectly made. "But even they are powerless against me." Suddenly the figures fell into the goo and did not rise, melting to become goo again.

The storm started to pick up in intensity, soon trees started to fall, lightning started striking at a faster rate, and thunder roared almost constantly. The shadow tendrils that had been torturing people soon killed or tossed away their current victims to find new ones, or to smash houses, windows, cars, trucks, anything they could reach.

"Now, what is it that you want? What was your goal in coming here?"

John stood still, his eyes moved along with the dragon's head, he shown no fear to the actions occurring. He just stood, holding his paper and ink, listening carefully to the words of the dragon. His pseudo-life energy intensified along with the collection of the life energy of the dragon, he should be able to form symbols by simply throwing ink now.

"So it was true that you died, I feel a slight connection as we both have cheated death. That's what makes us beings of death anyway. But compared to you, I am nothing." John spoke out in a stern tone, attempting to make himself sound fearless, showing that he had dealt with similar beings before.
"I look up to you, Death Dragon. It is a great honor to meet you. I heard about you years ago, back when this body was young and alive. I used to be a warlock of neutral affinity, of course you should know that means that I can master any kinds of magic." He answered the dragon's questions calmly, the words were elongated and slow, ensuring that they would sink in.

"I admit and acknowledge my powerlessness against you, I do not wish any disputes anyway."

"What I want? I want a small group of people to join my army. Of course, meeting you has helped me. I came here searching for those people, I heard that they were here. These guys, they are beings of an ultimately superior and dangerous race. All of which contain the greatest ocular power known. The race, are Shadonian and Shadonian-Human hybrids. The power is known as the 'Eye of Payemyndii', I know it's strength, as I have once used it myself, along with working alongside these beings." John explained to the dragon, selecting his words carefully. Attacks won't kill him, but it will hurt, a lot.

"What I wish is for you to work alongside me, assist me. My targets are too dangerous to encounter alone, and they may be a lot of fun. Also, there are remains of one of my targets who has fallen nearby. But the soul has disappeared, meaning that I cannot track it. But the remains, could you track those remains?"

As John explained everything, Draco slowly sank into the pile of goo that was forming beneath his head. He then rose again, the goo forming his body, legs, tail, neck, and wings. The goo that formed the body seemed to swirl. "I might help you....I have found a few bodies lying around not far from here...." the dragon said.

Then his body fell into a pile again, spreading out as multiple figures rose from them, all perfect examples of what they would have looked like when they were alive. There were maybe ten figures, all of them staring straight at John with an expressionless face. The only thing about them is that because they were formed from Draco, their eyes all glowed dark red.

"Do you see the one you seek?" Draco asked.

Another crack of thunder roared across the sky, and people started charging out of their homes just to beat each other to death with whatever they could find. Shadow tendrils also came out of the goop that was Draco's body and pulled them into the goop and therefore into the shadow realm, where a worse fate than death awaited them.

John stared at the formation of the dragon's body, amazed. He even lowered his guard slightly and smiled behind his mask with the dragon's offer of help. Maybe the two beings of death can work together.
With the faces forming, John stared at them, working hard to remember the face of that bastard who had always doubted his power. Vladamir Rostovii. The two never got along when John was a member of the Payemyndii Clan, and their disputes always ended with John loosing. Now, finally, John can gain control of Vladamir's body and powers, he will be strong enough to destroy the Payemyndii.

"Sadly, none of those faces are what I seek. He has long grey hair, stubble, and wears a blindfold. I do not know what he looks like without the blindfold." John gave out a sigh which was hidden inside the puffing sound of the gas mask. If only he knew the look of his target without that damned blindfold.

"However, the way you can change your body like that. It's amazing! What kind of magic is it? I want to learn it."

Draco would have frowned if he had a human form. The figures he had created all fell back into the goo of shadow before it again collected and formed Draco's body, legs, tail, wings, etc. The great dragon opened his maw as if to yawn before he answered the next question.

"How?....... It is Draconian Shadow Magic" The beast explained. "When you become powerful enough, you don't need a physical form to live. You can become pure shadow, and manipulate yourself and the shadows around you to do your bidding. Learning it, however, is quite the different story, as there is nothing to teach you. You have to be given the power, then you must train yourself over time." Draco explained, letting out what seemed to be a dark, evil chuckle that gave way to some ill intentions.

John's stance became more relaxed as the conversation continued, his eyes showing his amazement and excitement. "Well then..." His voice was more cynical and troublesome, "...Why don't you give me the power?" His voice raised and he slightly lifted his arms in an attempt to show his great authority and power. A small giggle escaped from the noise of the breathing gas mask.

"We are both beings of death, we have both cheated death. That makes us equals right?"

John suddenly remembered the amount of time being used up, swearing quietly enough to be covered up by his breathing. "Anywho, why don't you join me? My target must've been executed, if it was public then I would know, so it was obviously private. Showing that he held a great resistance. You should know right? If you find the remains with me, then I will allow you to claim two bodies of the group I am hunting down."

A dark laugh erupted from the shadows of both the Dragon's body, and from the shadows around them. "Unfortunately, gaining these powers requires you to do something that we both have done at least once: Die." Draco said, still chuckling darkly. "Plus, if I give you the powers, you become my servant. The DNA given to you becomes its own sentient being which will constantly fight for control over your mind and body. The longer you have it, the more powerful it becomes, and the harder it is to control it."

The swirling mass of shadow that formed his body seemed to quiver as he laughed yet again.

"You? Equal to me? ... I'm afraid you still don't know the extent of my power... I have died many times over my three and half million years of life. Each death molded me into what I am today." he explained with a low, dark growl. "And to achieve my full power... I must die again, and reclaim my lost body from its sealed prison."

The great Dragon started to circle the man before him, wings flapping as lightning and thunder continued to roar across the city, Shadow tendrils and citizens alike killing almost everything that breathed. "I can help you find your target, but I will not bow to you. That respect is reserved for...... The Dragon paused, letting out a growl of disgust. "Someone of a much higher power than even I dare to imagine."

John listened, becoming this dragon's servant is a big no. And it doesn't sound nice to fight against another being for control, he will just try to create a new spell.

"I'm not interested in fighting against another being for my body, I think I will pass on that." John laughed a little, ignoring the chaos around him.

"I don't want you to bow to me, just work alongside me. As beings of equal status. But, your little story has given me an idea." An evil insane smile appeared behind the mask, the breathing covered up the sound of his small giggle.

"We can work together by a contract; You help me find my target, I will help you find your body and gain full power. Of course, you can even claim the souls or bodies of the beings that I am uninterested in who choose to protect my living targets. I apologize for underestimating you, but are you underestimating me?
I used to be a Warlock, master of the elements until I learned of necromancy and lost my life while trying to perfect it. But now, I have cheated death and gained full mastery on necromancy. I even invented my own magic to imitate the same power of the Eye of Payemyndii, along with means of recovering pseudo-life energy.
But, that doesn't matter. Will you join me in the destruction of those damned peace seeking Payemyndii?"

"Wise choice" Draco said with another chuckle. As soon as John mentioned Draco's body, the Dragon's laugh stopped immediately. The great being stopped his circling of the human male. In fact, the chaos around them stopped as well. The rain, hail, thunder, lightning, rampaging people, and tendrils all stopped. Everything just stopped and nothing moved or made a sound.

Draco merely stood there, staring at John as if trying to stare into his soul. "That is.... an impossible task, even for one as powerful as you. That seal was made to protect the entirety of the mountain my body is sealed underneath. It has stood since the day I died 3.5 million years ago, and each time I've tried to get through it, it's only gotten stronger. At this point, I'll need an army of warlocks as powerful as you to get through it since I can't do it myself." he growled darkly, his tail flicking quickly, sending a bolt of lightning right into a house, lighting it on fire. All at once, the chaos resumed as if it had never stopped.

"I can help you find the one you seek, and in return I will take two bodies to possess for my own purposes. But they must be alive." he said.

"Impossible? Don't sound human. If you let me have a look at the seal, I can come up with a canceller. Or, the body I want possesses powers strong enough to implode a star. The people I am hunting contain one guy who has blown a hole into a planet, by accident! And their leader... Let's just say he's an idiot but can change the fate of the universe." John laughed at first, but fell to speaking seriously while talking. Accepting the stare, there was nothing to stare into anyway, he just kept eye contact returning the glare of the clouded, death-ridden undead eyes.

"So you are happy to make this contract? You will work alongside me? And can I choose which two bodies you can possess?" John was finalizing the contract, making sure things go smoothly and he gains a powerful ally.

Draco stayed silent while John spoke. "Fine. You can see the seal....." he said quietly. Suddenly the body of the Dragon began to condense and shrink as well as change shape entirely. It went from being a great Dragon of pure shadow to being the illusion of a very handsome young man who looked to be about twenty three. His eyes still glowed red, but otherwise his body was perfectly made, as well as his clothing. He had brown hair, pale skin, and wore simple brown cargo pants and a black shirt, and had a muscular build.

"I will choose the bodies I possess, thank you very much." he said. "If there is one thing I have learned in my years of life, it's never trust anything anyone gives to you themselves.".

John giggled with an insane excitement, rubbing his hands together he spoke; "Well then, that sounds fun!" He watched as the great dragon shrunk down to the humanoid shape of a man. It was amazing magic, something John needs. It will take some more studying and soon he can make the magic.

"Fine, you can do that. As long as they aren't the leader or the sound manipulator." John seemed a little annoyed, but he was happy that he has a new powerful ally. "Now then, shall we get going? Comrade."

The now humanoid Draco sighed at how giddy John had become. "Calm yourself." The dragon said calmly. Draco's lip twitched. "I will pick whomever I see worthy of being picked." he said sternly. At John's next question, he gestured for the Warlock to take the lead with his hand.

"Right, right." John calmed down, tapping his gas mask while looking around. "I have no idea where to go... How about this way?" John pointed down the main street, it wasn't much of a good choice but maybe his tourist aspects kicked in. Without saying anything, John wondered off in the direction his gas mask giving off loud and faster breathing as he looked at the dead bodies around him. Should he reanimate and store them? Or should he leave them? Better leave them and prioritize searching for his target, his scythe clipped to his back upside down has been lacking of fresh blood for a while.

The great Dragon followed the undead human male without a word. Shadow tendrils came from the shadows and dragged the dead bodies into the shadows where they were to be offered up to a much higher power as sacrifice in order to attain more power for Draco.

"Where does these humans usually keep their dead?" the Dragon asked. "That is where you would most likely begin your search." he said calmly as the chaos continued around them.

John brought his hand to his gas mask and began tapping while walking. He ignored all of the chaos happening around the two, it's not very important. But those bodies are really making him feel a bit too happy.

"That's a good point, I haven't been to Terra before and I have no idea what these guys do." John spoke out in reply to the dragon's words, his voice made it obvious that he was thinking. "Maybe we should talk to the police or something, ask them about the guy I'm hunting. Of course, not say I am looking for him. Just state that we want to pay..." John raised his hands and made speech marks with his fingers, "...respects."

Draco said nothing for a while, but then let out a small breath. "If you are going to the local ... law enforcement...." he paused as he looked at the chaos around them with some amusement. "Then I will not be able to join you. This is the only human form I can take for myself, and it is wanted for a lot of what these idiotic humans call money.". he said calmly
