Name:Unknown

Alias: Paragon

Sword of the Heavens- This sword forged in an unknown and long lost metal seems to radiate with a glow akin to the very sun itself. This sword cleaves through the darkness like a knife through butter and holds no harm to those deemed innocent of Soul (More to come)

Shield of the Righeous: (More to come)

Biography:

"I? I am Forerunner..Guardian of all that Exists. The Universe has grown careful under our vigilant Watch. Where there is Shadow, ours is a Luminious Sun, Striking Fear into the minds of the Dark Ones: The Primes. We sealed them away long ago, deep under the radiant gaze of Our most Beloved Creation: The Sun. We slept...created our Beloved Caretakers and set them two rules to live by. One above, One Below. One of Light and One of Shadows and charged them with the Balance they so swore to uphold. Now the Balance has been cast aside. The Creations have forgotten their Balance with wish of Hatred. They Fear eachother without end, they Destroy Eachother....and all while the Darkness grows ever Darker in their hearts. I am Forerunner...I am Paragon. And I return at the turn of the Tide"

So begins...

The wind blew softly across the plains of the Eternal Garden as an abnormally bright light filled the area near a lake, a Winged man sitting beside a pool with his hand dipped into the waters. Nearby was a stone hut that had stood the test of time, but the man took no heed to this structure as he sighed heavily

"So misguided these humans are. This world, this Universe is far worse then I ever could concieve. Our Creations now rival themselves in bitter War....such thought should not be even fathomable" He said

His hand swirled in the water before his golden white eyes turned towards the Lion God with a small bow of his head in polite etiquite "These Worlds are crumbling.."

"Remember, Paragon." Leolik replied. His voice was deep and powerful, yet kind and reserved. "They are only children. Since the day of their Fall they have been corrupt and prone to wickedness, but they are not irredeemable. Their infighting is disheartening, but not unfathomable. I had forseen it. Since its birth Creation has been crumbling - from Order into Chaos. Such is the Grand Design, the notes of the Song of Creation. All will eventually fall into their proper place. Even you, Forerunner." he smiled.

"There is more then we wish to see bold King. I have been watching for a time as the worlds tear eachother apart. Hell stands weakened, it's leader dominated by fear and hatred. Heavem's own Angels becoming corrupted and Yahweh, our Keeper, has fled to lands unknown. This has not been seen since long before we Created them all" He frown and turned to look back into the pool, stirring the waters gently with his hand before raising himself up, opening his wings to their full length

"I fear for the Balance your Grace...I fear the Primes are involved. Have you visited their prisons? Have you seen them in their cells?" He asked him, watching in the water: A Mushroom cloud over many cities on a fertile green world. A pained look came to his eyes as he sighed heavily

"Chaos must also come to Order...I fear it falls further then we deemed it in the Songs of Creation"

A smirk spread across Leolik's maw. "I am aware of everything you speak of, Paragon. Hell has always been filled by fear and hatred, for that is what it was founded upon, but I know what you attest to. You also state that the Creator has vanished, but is that so? Perhaps He has merely hid His face... The time is coming when the Tides of Darkness will be unleashed upon Creation. They must be exposed to shadow before they can realize why they need the light. The Primes are most likely involved, but are they not part of Creation as well? Even they have a purpose - a purpose that may be drawing near."

"Forgive me my King but you know the Kingdom of Man is not yet strong enough to obtain such knowledge. They know Right and Wrong yet they constantly blur the lines for their own ends. If the Primes are involved, they will stop at nothing to end Creation in it's entirety and bring us out. If we are to face them, we must intervene and save our Creations from certain annialation"

He looked at the King and took an agressive stance, not towards the King but to show his own strength, fist outstretched "Just give me the word Sire and I shall bring Heaven's Legions into the fray and eliminate the Primes. They must not threaten the Creation we have worked tirelessly for...I will rally the people to fight the Darkness. She has been growing all too strong my Lord. If not properly sealed again, Darkness will once again consume us all. Do you not see this?"

"Yes, I know more than anyone that Man is not yet ready for such advanced knowledge of the divine. I have know doubt that you could face the Dark Legion in battle and safeguard Existence against destruction like so many eons ago." he turned to the Forerunner and pierced him with a stern gaze that could shatter galaxies. "I see all. I know exactly what they are capable of. I have seen their birth, their existence, and their deaths. Their temporary reign will only serve the glory of the Creator... You must have faith, Paragon. All is going according to plan."

"I have my own doubts about a Plan such as this. If one thing goes awry and their is a deviation of this plan oh mighty King, then we will all surely perish and the cycle of rebirth will happen once again" He said with a clearly worried tone, his golden eyes turning towards the clouds of Heaven

"My heart grieves for those lost. I created the Angels from my own Feathers...gave them life and watch them grow. It hangs heavy on my heart to see the Creations of Life suffer so needlessly. No one should have to face the Primes alone...." He said with a heavy sigh

"Forgive me oh Noble King...I have just seen too many of my beloved children fall to the Darkness's reign"

"Your sympathy is commendable, Paragon," Leolik replied, "and understandable. However, even Heaven and Hell must come to an end when all is accomplished. When the Harvest comes, the wheat shall be separated from the tears, even among the reapers and servants of the one who sows the seeds. Both demons and angels will face a final judgement and tribulation before the final hour."

Leolik dipped his paw into the water and the surface shimmered. It revealed a half-leveled city. In the center was a massive crystal. Blackened claws and ebony wings beat against the inside as a ferocious maw snarled and heaved. The ground around the crystal was withered, dead, and blackened from the dark power that resonated from the crystal.

"It shall come to pass that the Destroyer shall be set free from his prison, along with his malevolent siblings." he said. "A host of worlds shall fall to his hand - to his legion. Universes, heavens, and hells. Seemingly indiscriminate destruction and death, but guided by an even greater power... A power that caused Fear to quake in awe, and Death to flee in terror."

"By the Heavens..." He said as he looked into the water as the Lion King stirred the surface of the water then looked out to his beloved city and then to his own feathers "Today marks a Day of Firsts...the Paragon, the Forerunner, felt a spot of Fear. Not fear of my own life...but for that of my children"

He said white reaching to the Lion King and set a hand upon his Golden Mane in a friendly gesture "Tell me Old Friend...wise one of the Mystics...how does one prevent such devestation?" He asked him and watched the water once more, taken aback by the horrors befalling his Creations

"It is as sure as the day the stars will flicker into darkness..." he said. "One can only delay and divert it. The Emperor constantly searches for the power that was confiscated from him. He tirelessly searches for a way to break from his bonds. When he does, he will set upon a dark crusade against the whole of Existence - such as he has done since before Creation... Such as he is meant to do."

"However..." his paw stirred again. It revealed a light slowly being surrounded and crushed by infinite and eternal darkness and void. From the shadows emerged smaller lights that joined the larger. As the darkness drew closer to the light its advance grew slower and more labored. It reached for the light greedily with long murderous fingers. "Even as the last star flickers out and the last world is devoured by the All Consuming Darkness, there shall be a safe haven for those whose faith has persevered. Untouched and unreachable by the Darkness - a harbor in the storm. Such is the fate of those claimed by salvation. A Heaven of Heavens surrounded by the Hell of Hells - the purest light buried in the purest darkness."

Leolik again looked at Paragon. "This is the ultimate fate of Creation - the pivoting point of the Cycle. It is from here that it begins anew. Thus, the only alternative is delay. There is currently one mortal people in this cycle that has successfully restrained the Emperor and his Legion..."

"Our people...was it not?" He asked him and watched the water more quietly now while his eyes moved towards the City before Eden with a sigh "I built that city...perhaps it would be best to be torn down eventually...but tell me King of Kings...how much longer must I sit idle?" He asked the Golden King, clearly seeking answers to the questions gnawing at him

"Yes and no..." he began "Though we imprisoned him the first time, eons later he escaped and sought to cover the world in shadow once more. It was then that a single kingdom of scholars, farmers, and craftsmen said no to his tyranny. The stood against the Dark Legion and, with my blessing, pushed them back."

Leolik disturbed the water once more, and a third image revealed itself. In the image was the mighty Dark Emperor in all his terrible glory locked blade-to-blade with a tall lion-man clad in shining plate armor. His hand gripped an enormous runeblade adorned with runes of light, righteousness, and courage. A storm of holy golden flame burned around him as he faced the dark lord.

"King Neodin Shadowslayer. He is the High Priest of my Chosen, and my prophet. I lent him my blessings of courage and wisdom and, through his leadership, the Aryites defeated the Dark Legion. The Priest-King and the Arch-mage - two brothers against the greatest evil known in Creation - and they won. The Emperor was again cast into chains deep within his mountain fortress where he continues to plot."

"He will escape again, but only briefly, to reveal to Existence his power and presence. Several worlds will fall to him before he is again put in chains. However, in this case he will outlast his prison..."

The image changed again, revealing a crimson star drifting in the cosmos. A few planets circled the red giant. It suddenly erupted in a blinding light, snuffing out the worlds like specks of dust. A single shadow stood against the onslaught of the cosmic storm - a shadow that feasted on the light until it all but vanished.

"The world that acts as his prison is dying, and the Aryites, his jailors, are aware of this. As we speak they make plans to flee their ancient home before it is consumed by star fire. In this climax of destruction the chains of the Emperor will be sundered, and his conquest begun anew."

"The time will come when the Children of God will be tested. The Kingdom will divide after the light disappears and their hearts are revealed. Brother will rise against brother and a new war of Heaven will ensue. At the height of this conflict, Paragon, you will join my servants and put the defiant angels to the sword."

Shi Zhen Li was sleeping peacefully against the side of a laying elephant who was basking in the shade of a huge tree on the bank of a soothing river with its long grey trunk lapped lazily around him like a blanket. The forest was quiet and peaceful, full of tranquility and the echoing sounds of nature. Birds and crickets were chirping and singing. Grasshoppers and dragonflies were buzzing around. Rabbits and squirrels were pouncing about, and everything seemed to be in perfect harmony. Shi Zhen Li was in paradise, literally. He never had to want for anything. The rivers and forests provided everything, and although he was quite primitive and had a simple lifestyle, Li thought of himself as the wealthiest and happiest person in the whole wide world. Life was good, and he lived without care.

Every morning, the 36 year old Asiatic monk would rise at sunrise and sit on the bank of the river to meditate and smile at the rising sun. Then he would wash himself under the freezing cold waterfall, throw on his simple loincloth or plain toga and go to work gathering fruits and vegetables, foraging for edible roots and berries. Some of them, he fed to the birds and animals he encountered, and some of them he ate. He built a small sacrificial altar out of simple flat stones that he had stacked together, and every day he made burnt offerings to the creator using sweet smelling herbs and spices. Li had no real concept of politics or religion, but his instincts told him that there had to be a creator and a higher power beyond what his normal eyes could see. Some people called it God, or Yahweh, while others called it the Force or something else. Li himself just felt it was the entirety of the whole cosmos, and so he never actually gave the higher power a name, as names just seemed too limiting for something so formless, so vast and powerful. He just simply referred to it as the Tao, heavens or universe.

Shi Zhen Li loved the universe with pure empathy. Every single day, without failure, he would take care of the animals and tend to the many sporadic gardens in the forest and open plains. He watered the plants and talked to the flowers, singing to the trees and giving them gift for gift, never taking more than what he absolutely needed. He made time to play with the lions and feed the squirrels, and he would often sing with the birds and socialize with all the other wild animals he came into contact with throughout his day. They were his only family, after all, and the Garden of Eden was their home. Li was born in the garden, or else created. He had no recollection of his parents or how he got there. He grew up in the jungle, far away from human civilization. He had no concept of sorrow, death, sickness, suffering or old age. He had never witnessed it or experienced such a thing for himself. He had spent his entire life in paradise, and was as happy as a pig in mud.

As the carefree monk slept peacefully against his ginormeous grey friend, he suddenly felt a slight tickle in his ear. Shi Zhen Li would grimace slightly and twitch, squirming a bit before falling still again. A moment later, he felt another tickle in his ear, causing the sleeping monk to roll over on one side. But then he felt something heavy resting on his bald head and messing with his scalp. "Tumtu stop that, I'm trying to sleep." Suddenly there was a loud huff as hot moist wind blew against his face. "Tumtu!" the monk wiped his face and opened his eyes. The elephant groaned and let out a strange noise which sounded like a disturbed trumpet, nudging him with its trunk. Li pushed the large mammoth's trunk away from himself before sitting up and wiping his tired eyes, letting out a long yawn as he stretched his arms.

The elephant, apparently named Tumtu, would stand up slowly, causing the sleepy monk to stand on his own two feet. Li took a minute to gather his thoughts and gain awareness before turning to stare at his floppy-eared friend. "What is it boy?" he asked. The gigantic mammal would scrape its paw along the ground, throwing its trunk up in the air as if responding. "Breakfast? But we already had breakfast earlier," Li remarked. Tumtu let out another bellowing groan before stomping his feet and turning around in circles. Shi Zhen Li scoffed and shook his head, rolling his eyes. "I thought you said you were on a diet. You're going to get fat you know," Li commented. Tumtu the elephant apparently understood this statement as he nudged the monk's whole body with his forehead, pinning him against the tree with his tusks while letting out another trumpet-like bellow, this time louder than before.

Shi Zhen Li giggled helplessly, the prickly hairs on Tumtu's forehead tickling him as he pet the elephant's squirmy trunk. "Hahaha fine fine okay okay, I'll get you some melons, sheesh. But then you have to take me to the temple, and no more pit stops until we get there. Promise?" Li placed his hands on his hips and gave the large beast a stern scowling face to face. Tumtu would lick Li's face with his big wet tongue and kneel down on his front legs, lowering his head as if bowing. Shi Zhen Li smiled and hugged Tumtu's big fat giant head before stepping on to his tusks and climbing on to his back. Afterwards, the mammoth would raise his head and stand upright, his large brown eyes seeming happy as can be as he carried the weightless monk through the forest, treading slowly along the dirt pathway along the riverbend, heading towards the mountainside with Li as his passenger.
