Anastasia Faizland wrote:Anastasia, at Leland's request alone, holstered her weapons, but looked just as impatient as the being before them had before. "Hey-just...get on with it. Does your place, Krad's place or this planets level and place in the universe, the very scheme of things, matter in the end? What point are you trying to get at, if time is of the urgency, get on with it then!" she says out loud, unknowingly that her very ancestors had acted the same upon Krad's arrival to Galiavan when he began to... 'spread his faith'. Hence why, Elves were cast from his 'light' and given his unwarranted rage.

Leland McKelly wrote:Leland looked to Anastasia, noticing her... shade of pink in her face. He frowned, and turned to the being. "Ignore her rantings, but she has a point. Spare me the history lesson, and simply tell me what you want. Then leave the Queen and her people alone!" he exclaimed.

"If you two would stop interrupting me with your impatience, then perhaps this would make sense. Because if I simply shown you your adversary, the only response you would have is 'Let me grab this gun or that weapon and i'll blow him up'. I am demonstrating that it is not, nor will it ever be that simple!" retorted the Empress irritably.

The green eyes turned to look at Anastasia. "To answer your question, Anastasia - it means Everything. To get a sense of scale, when the Universes were still forming, I and my siblings, the first archangels created by The One, explored the Void, the vast emptiness beyond our home, where we planted the seeds for future dimensions. But we never dared go beyond the light of our home, all but one. The image showed one particular angel, wreathed in holy light, streaking into the distance, further and further from the light of his siblings and their home, until nothing but the infinite blackness surrounded him, and he became lost.

"My brother, Verial was lost to us... We knew not what happened to him... until he returned, consumed by the deeper Void, and his body used as a host for it's terrible might and will to consume everything. Verial, my brother was gone, and in his place, the Void Dragon reigned."



The monster was shown rampaging across multiple dimensions, consuming and destroying everything it touched. Angels and other gods included. "Before we could muster our forces and rally to the great ones call, the monster had destroyed half of what we had planted, and consumed half of our siblings before we managed to render it inert and send it back to where it belonged. For we could not destroy the fundamental force of all destruction."

The image showed the developing universes and the body of the Void Dragon drifting off into the infinite blackness beyond. "After the apocalyptic battle, the remaining universes continued to develop, and we seeded new ones. And before long, new wars would rise, and the Void Dragon was all but forgotten by the younger angels. The schism occurred, and we Fallen were cast from the High Heavens into the Pitts of Hell, cleaving the Great Ones forces almost in half once again. And as time past, unbeknown to us, the Void Dragon recovered it's strength, and sought to use a seed of it's former self's own power to return. Now, the Dragon awakes, and has found a new host.... And neither the forces of Light and Darkness can stand alone and face the monster now.... it destroyed too many of us, and the schism cemented our failure... We need the mortal realms now more than ever to equalise the balance and defeat the beast again."

"Wow..." Anastasia said softly, her face neutral in expression, looking up at the Empress: "'Let me grab this gun or that weapon and i'll blow him up'." with that she turned to Leland whispering to him. "Seriously though, I don't like this. Neither this woman...nor the mission she presents us with our role being...minuscule and unclear. Granted, I don't mind playing the 'enemy of my enemy' is my friend card, but this feels off."

Leland abashedly shook his head and took another side step, to shield Anastasia. "Given the circumstances... I think I shall take your warning and if I happen to run into your 'wayward' son, I'll pass the message along. However, I cannot condone your actions, and what you have done to the countless victims you've lain in your wake. To me, that you've allowed such freedom within your ranks to do as you please, building your shrines which produce monsters that victimize Galiavan's people... shows you are as fit to lead your people as the Baroness has to the Demon Realm..." he says his eyes glowing a bright blue as he used 'the sight' to help put other puzzle pieces together. "I don't fully trust you, nor this alliance because the way you lead. But...if you leave these Lamia alone, and not show retaliation to my Elven friend... I'll promise I will pass the message along."

The Empress looked at the two of them, and smiled savagely. "Where it not for this emergency, you would all be destroyed by my presence. My people do what they do because they must. And they must, because the One Above All gave us no choice when he cast us away. You all have no idea of the good fortune you have by being granted the freedom of choice without ever having to earn it. We few who thought differently from what 'He' wanted, we were cast out of our homes, and forced to become monsters. Well, if we are to become monsters, so be it, but I will make sure 'He' and all His little loyalists and you His precious pets all know why we bear the title of monsters. Now, are you done with your heroic speeches? We nave not the time for you to try and debate with me over what is right and wrong with your world or our involvement with it."

The Empress snorted with her contempt. "And do not pretend that you yourself are so heroic, innocent and pure. Nobody on this planet is truly innocent. You have the blood of your own people on your hands, both of you. Some of evil people, but you've also all shed the blood of those you thought were innocent. And while you mortals blissfully all exterminate yourselves in intercene fighting and warfare, Hell came to your doorstep, yet you all kept up pretenses, and kept on going like nothing had changed. Some countries still plot to wipe eachother out, even if our arrival had produced a sense of tension, you would still face another war, Another wave of crime. Black Anubis? Shadowlaw? These were concepts before we arrived in force. And now, with the end of all things facing you, you STILL want to negotiate and cast judgement? You mortals are almost obscenely arrogant and hypocritical..."

"You are as a bully asking the kid he's picking on to help him fight his abusive father," she says to the Empress. "We are not acting 'holier than thou', although you on the other hand are. I'm sure most in this room, are aware of the crimes, how small or large we've committed. Of the blood we've spilled. We may be ants in the greater scheme of things, but so what? Apparently being on the top of the ladder isn't any better." she says honestly. "When the beast comes, there indeed may be no tomorrow which follows. But none of us know that. Leland here wants to negotiate during that time your 'things' your 'monsters' don't attack this tribe. That if we make it, we are rewarded and not simply lambs for the slaughter. Because frankly bitch, you don't give off the vibes you'll let us live once we've completed our end of the bargain." she grumbled.

"No one here is a hero, we've got our demons. Some of us deal with them better than others." Leland gripped the Queen and frowned. "Its because we live such short lives, we must be paranoid of what ventures we delve ourselves into. I've agreed to help in this task most perilous, but your continued hostility and presence seems moot." he says before bowing his head slightly. "If you are second guessing our assistance, I cannot rightly blame you. But like you said, you are out of time. It is a simple request I make, to leave these villagers alone. You need us...as much as we supposedly need you. Or this entrance you've made...had been for naught."

You need us...as much as we supposedly need you. Or this entrance you've made...had been for naught."

The Empress was about to retort once again, however, before she could, she noticed a glint in the image of the Void Dragon she still had displayed from the orb in her hand. "!!!" Before she could do anything, the orb in her hand shattered, shredding her hand in the proccess. Then a voice filled the hall that shook her to her very eternal spark.

"Ah, There you are, my dear little sister Andariel... Heh, didn't think I would find you cavorting with the amoeba." the image of the beast was talking to them all, in real time, emitting now from an unknown source since the orb was destroyed. "Hmhmhmhmmmm, these limited beings are part of your plans to stop me? How thoroughly amusing. Look at them Andariel. They are fragile, their lives are but a blink of our eyes in time. Even the knife eared one who thinks she is immortal. They will NEVER understand your struggle. You argue yourselves in circles like glitchmice, all the while, I feast and grow ever stronger. You forfeited your eternal lifespark to LEGION, for nothing but the chance to defeat me. But no matter what you do, it will all be over this time...."

The presence of the monster before them was having a profound effect on not only the Empress, but Orphia as well, who was staring wide eyed at the apparition with horror, before she coughed into her hand trickles of blood. Her precognition sensed nothing but the utter darkness and destructive might of the beast before her, and it was overwhelming. "It's.... real!.... The monster of ultimate destruction..... is real...." she whispered in Leland's ear.

Zetose, Corona and the guards tried to form a defensive ring around the queen and her guests, while the Councilman watched on with nervous and horrified expressions. "Protect the Queen!" Zetose called out behind him to Leland and Anastasia.

"From this side of the orb- your breath is fresh and minty, worm!" She exclaimed at the new arrival, turning to the others. "Apparition or not, its perhaps best to not fortify ourselves here and instead back away to a more advantageous locale!" She barked to the guards, grinding her teeth together. Knife eared eh? Up yours too you bony lizards; I've seen better handbags compared to you! She thought, while trying to help mobilize the Queen's forces.

Leland was not expecting the vile creature's arrival, causing him to take a few steps back. The beast seemed equally disdainful of the Empress if not simply teasing her in a twisted manner. He held the Lamia's Queen tightly, turning his body in such a manner that she would be safe from the swirling debris and aura radiating from this creature. He turned to Anastasia sharply: "Really?! What the hell are you on Anastasia?! Don't antagonize the dark entity!" he exclaimed, feeling a bit useless other than being a shield for the Queen.

"Hmhmhmhmmm, This is nothing but a prelude. A portent of things to come. My host is almost ready, and soon, all shall become nothingness within the Void, as it should have always been." The beast did not even aknowledge Anastasia's outburst, or the flurry of activity of the Lamia or Leland.

"Until that day.... enjoy yourselves... Hmhmhmhmmmm" with those parting words, the monster faded, and it's power fell silent once again.

The Empress collapsed to her knee, the blackened stump of her upper right arm all that remained of the hand that once held the orb. On instinct, she reached up, and almost grasped the stump, until she realized the Void was eating her alive, and with the flick of her left hand, she severed the remainder of the arm off at the shoulder, and watched the desiccated limb be reduced to nothingness.

"....... He was even able to reach between dimensions to reach us, even while not fully awake yet..... Is that proof enough....?" the Empress's pained voice strained to them, before  she too began to fade.

Leland turned from Anastasia to the Empress's lack of an arm, watching her remove it before the darkness spread up and devour the rest before it too vanished. It was a terrifying power indeed, to say the least. "...Everyone okay?" he called out, looking between the Lamias, Anastasia and Terras.

Anastasia looked to Leland rubbing the back of her head and blushed, drunkenly. "S-sorry... I admit... I'm may have imbibed myself with a heavily intoxicating drink which...admittedly I've never had. Bloodwine, mortal whiskeys, hell even dwarven mead, they've got nothing... on what I've drank." she says before looking around. "Besides... stumpy over there, I think we're all fine love." she says blinking. "Leland." She corrected.

The Empress frowned at Anastasia's comment and resolidified. "Give me a moment. RAAAAH!" she roared out, as her arm regrew rapidly in a burst of crimson blood and energies.

Testing the new appendage, she bent and unbent the elbow, and clenching and unclenching the fingers. "Hmmm, May sound strange, but I prefer the old arm better... Oh well, I guess I'll have to break it in." Those last words directed at Anastasia with a smirk.

But the smirk faded as she looked at the group. "If you still wish to try and take your vengeance against my sundered kin, then your vengeance is misplaced. I know what happened to your spouse Leland. Why you seek those weapons, the fires of vengeance in your heart burns as strongly as any Revenant in Hell. But your target is misplaced. The sundered ones who did so were driven mad by hunger, and they were driven mad because the current Baroness forbid them their sustenance. Sealed them in the demon realm and shut herself away from mortals entirely. Indeed, demons of any kind require one thing to survive and power their immortality - living energy. That is the key. Without it, weakness, starvation, followed by deterioration of mental faculties, until only the beast remains... "

Anastasia looked on as the being regrew her arm in a rather grotesque fashion. Still, Anastasia appeared physically unmoved by this, either because of the drink in her system, her experience with the gruesome through her years of conflict and war, or slightly both. She frowned at the being. "What's that supposed to mean?...Forget I asked." she says shrugging before helping some of the Lamia up around her. To listen what the Empress said about Leland, she slowly turned to face the Gunslinger with a weary look before looking back at the Empress then him again. Before she was unaware of his intentions, though it be for in search of a weapon of some sort, she wasn't aware of the motivation behind it.
