The shadow castle
Click to go to bottom
You walk up to a castle made purely of darkness, followed by the one chosen to be your guide, Devon looks ahead,
"I fear what dangers we must face... but together we may take it on with no need to fear!" He stated
The two of you open the doors, which were dark purple, Devon brushed back his black hair as his red eyes gleam with mystery, he was sweet but could be really cold, he was wearing his normal outfit, a torn black t-shirt and ripped black jeans, suddenly you and Devon get jumped by a dragon knight, one of the queen's warriors,
"This isn't good!" Devon said
He summons a sword made of darkness and stands at your side, ready for a fight,
(I presume this is open to anyone?)
We playin, player?
*MUSE stood at Devon's side. She would laugh before glitching out but returning no worse for where. She stands ready for a fight.*
Call this castle whatcha want. With a virus like me in the game, all ya can do is sit back and let me decode ya, ya catch me? MUSE V2 in the game.
*MUSE forms three clones of herself, all laughing and summoning glitchy weapons: A baseball bat, a gun and a dagger.*
No game, go home. Punch it, Punk.
A sigh echoes out as Eito steps forward, drawing his two blades from their sheathes, crossing them in the air, creating a burst of sparks, before lowering them once more.
"What a pain, the least they could do was make this easier for us."
In the hooded teenager's left hand rests a blade of black steel, with a golden hilt, and in his right, one made entirely of silver. The right-hand sword ignites in flames, the left-hand one doing the same, but with black, sinister feeling fire.
"Cleansing by fire or by curses? I really do wonder which is best."
(Hmm... I guess?)
He looked to MUSE and Eito,
"Might I ask, my friends, are you two ready?" He asked
He had a slight smile, which was honestly adorable, despite his red eyes, but how they glimmered made them adorable as well,
Why'd ya think we got ready ta fight? To run in the other direction. Less talking. More attacking. Go smash the thing already.
Eito slightly adjusts his line of sight, looking at Devon with gently pulsing yellow eyes. His expression is utterly flat, almost bored.
"Ready as I'll ever be, I suppose. It's not like these things stand a chance, anyways." He notes, calmly.
The young man cracks his neck and looks away, though for a mere instant, a slight grin appears on Eito's mouth, his eyes turning to a glowing scarlet, before being forcibly returned a to calm yellow.
"You heard the lass, let's kill it. I'll give you the honour of the first hit."
Fucidin finds himself near a strange structure suddenly, shaking his head as he clutches his sheathed blade.
Gah! What did I get myself into this time!
Noticing the others gathering in the approximate same area, Fucidin runs up to them
H-hey! You guys can't seriously be going into that... Thing!
Devon smiled lightly,
"Well then... let's do this" he said
A ball of darkness formed in his left hand, he sent it at the black knight and it burst,
With nothing more than a deep breath, Eito's grip on his swords tightens, their flames intensifying. Wasting no time, he charges at the knight, pouncing at him with inhuman strength, both blades ready to impale him.
"Let's end this before it gets tiring, yeah?"
*With a smirk and a nod, MUSE sends her baseball bat wielding clone towards the knight. It leaps in the air and, just before contact, vanishes. It reappears behind the knight and swings at the back of it's head.*
Believe you me. Openin up ain't all that bad. Ya head can heal. Some of the time. Ah ha ha.
The knight and his dragon fell at the strength upon being hit, Devon nodded lightly,
"We're coming for you... mother..." he said in a whisper
As the fight pans out, Fucidin stands on the sidelines, watching the others duke it out
Yeesh... Was that really necessary?
Hold up, Mother? Aight, know what.
*The real MUSE glitches over to a nearby chair and takes a seat, her two clones vanishing.*
I played along enough. What are we doin here, guy. I know I wanna know. What about you two? Mr Red with the goddess' swords? Mr intruder fence sitter cowering in the corner? You guys wanna know the game plan to, aight?
Fucidin gulps at hearing that nickname, it didn't exactly paint a pretty picture for him even if it was accurate.
Uh yeah, the names Fucidin by the way. Local Tri Card! But that's not important. I'm just wondering how and why we are here mostly!
"What, should we have asked Mr. Black Knight if he could let us in to this ominous castle, pretty please?" Eito sarcastically speaks out, staring at Fucidin for a moment, before shaking his head and turning away to listen to MUSE.
Eito raises an eyebrow at her mention of the goddess, looking down at his swords as he sheathed them, before shrugging. "Sure. Doesn't really matter much, but I suppose it can't hurt to know."
"We are here to fight the queen, stop her from killing anymore" Devon said
He sighed, he didn't want to do this: but he had not much of a choice, the dark prince shut his glowing red eyes,
Course I know. Ain't one ta brag, but I've got a super computer running my brain. I know everything to an extent. Ya Goddess ain't exactly hiding.
*MUSE leans forward.*
Boy, you just grabbed us off the street and brought us here. You haven't even discussed payment yet.
Well. Maybe! Did he seem that evil..? I don't know, this all seems a little extreme, I'm not a big fan of randomly killing anything we come across!
The Queen? What Queen?
Fucidin then looks at the castle again
Ah right, I'm assuming this Queen? Why would she attack people though?
"True enough, Morgana never seemed to be the type to hide away. It's been a long time since I heard of her, though..."
Eito leans back with a sigh, his hands resting on the hilts of Tyrfing and Murgleis, the two swords pulsing comfortably.
"Regardless, I'm not here for money or some sort of cause. My skills have gotten rusty, so as long as I get to fight something strong, I couldn't care less about payment." He looks towards Devon at that, his perpetually bored expression returning in full.
"Wasn't aware you needed one, and also, Fucidin, it's what's written in her blood... her son Varin, he isn't much better, neither was her father, for that matter any of those referred to as a royal of darkness, except for very few, but they all have blood of light flowing through their veins" he said
Devon pulled out a stone of some sort, it was very beautiful and sparkled quite a bit though it was black, quite obviously it was magic of some sort, he gave it to MUSE,
"That was made from darkness, the same darkness that created this castle, it's magic and an extremely rare kind, it serves well to boost one's strength and defense" he said
Oh ho ho.
*MUSE would glitch through Devon, snatching the crystal, and holding it up to the light.*
This is new. I can get something from this. I can roll with this. Let's play Regicide.
Devon looked down, his red eyes focused on the ground, something was wrong, but you couldn't tell what it was, not unless you heard his whispers and knew his heart, he wished for peace with his mother and his brother, but their bloodline and his will to do what was right would not allow such,
"Lets go, people need us to do this" Devon said
Eito observes Devon's behaviour quietly, the young man's discerning eye practically piercing into the prince for a moment. Soon enough, however, he cracks his knuckles and begins walking into the entrance. "Right, let's get a move on, then. I don't have all day."
Already on it, Red. Come on Princey. Stiff upper lift and all that.
*MUSE glitches out, shifting ahead of the group and moving forwards.*
"Please, MUSE, don't call me that..." Devon whispered
He hated being called that, he didn't want to be known for his blood, but for what he has done, of anything at all, even his dragon, Darvin understood that, Devon forces himself to perk up, feeling that acting negative would effect their confidence, so he tried to act positive, though sadness lingered in his eyes, he walked along with Eito, trying to force a believable smile, though his smile was obviously fake,
"If you're gonna cry, do make sure to keep it brief. We're not exactly safe around here." Eito speaks unsympathetically, but he does give Devon a sarcastic pat on the back as they progressed.
"I get that this whole deal is probably traumatizing you or something like that, but we're not going to be spared the luxury of letting out our emotions at any time."
*From ahead of the two, MUSE would shout back.*
Turn up. Parties are for losers. Pace it up.
Devon was trying to hide what he was, the blood of darkness to him was a curse, one he wished he could escape, which was another reason why he told MUSE not to call him Princey, he was ashamed of what ran in his blood, he thought he had said the thing about his mother quiet enough to not be heard,
"You heard the irritating lass, get moving. Faster we get this done, the better, right? You can wax philosophically about it later." Withou wasting a second, Eito breaks out into jogging, prompting Devon to either do the same or be left behind.
Teddie rolls up to the group. He had been following them silently... Actually, he hadn't really been silent. It was a miracle that they didn't hear him, he had been knocking plenty of things over.
"Oh? Are you guys going into this spooky castle? What for? Daddy issues? Mommy issues? Riches? Or perhaps just a glass of wine?"
I heard that Red. I ain't irritating just... Yeah, I can pick up what ya putting down. Scratch that.
Devon speeds up, keeping up with Eito, then chuckles lightly at Teddie,
"We are here for peace and justice, above all else" he said
The smile was still forced, just now more believable, it didn't look completely fake
"Yes, quite the lofty goal you set, there, D. The ugly bear thing is probably more accurate, though."
Eito continues his jog, chuckling quietly to himself. "You know, this place is awfully unguarded for a castle, now that I think of it. We've been going for a while without anyone trying to stop us. You sure this 'Queen' is really competent?"
A booming adolescent voice can be heard from above in the foyer befalling the heroes, footsteps from a form concealed by darkness breaking the silence
"What kind of 'heroes' use violence as a first resort? Have you never tried diplomacy?"
The male had reached the bottom of the stairs, his form revealed by thine eyesight. He appeared to be a youthful elven boy, pointy ears and light frizzy hair. Dark-blue cloth surrounded him, giving him an air of refinement. A fox-like creature with a silver glimmer sat besides him.
"Alphinaud Leveilleur, protector of darkness. One way or another, I will impede your progress into this grotto. Be it by word or sword."
Point. I've been through a few of the rooms and no-one is here. Maybe they all ditched.
*MUSE glitches up to the group, smirks and glitches off.*
Ya did say the ruler ain't nice.
A voice behind the group echoed from the dark and with style and grace a long lost friend would make his entry to "assist".... He most likely heard about the prize, that's what that meant.
Am i late to the party? Is there anything i can do to help you guys?
What they didn't notice is that the boy had his hands full of weapons, 2 hammers (they looked real but made out of cheap plastic), a sword (when used it would activate a siren that can potentially attract attention) and 3 bottles of Panta (but instead of being regular old panta those are actually granades).
You guys can pick any of these, it's gonna be sooo much fun!
At that point he still hadn't noticed Eito, that's why his confidence was still shining.
Teddie stops rolling and starts going into a jog.
"Ugly bear thing? That's beary rude of you."
He sniffs the air.
"Hey, you... Smell familiar, you also look quite familiar too, are you sure we haven't met anywhere, red guy?"
Eito stops in his tracks at the sight of Alphinaud, raising an eyebrow. One of his hands move towards the holsters on the back of his waist as he moves to speak. "The only one claiming to be a hero is our gallant leader, 'Sir'. I, for one, much prefer the title of..."
Eito trails off as he notices Kokichi's voice, going completely and utterly still, slowly turning around to glance at the boy, his eyes swiftly turning from a bright yellow to a dark purple. He promptly ignores basically everything around him, except for Kokichi. "You..."
Suddenly a bunch of dragon knights jumped the group
"Guys, we got a problem..." Devon said
Kokichi was still laughing at himself, thinking about some pranks when someone... He knew him, it has been a long while since they've seen eachothers tho and with those memories flowing the pain he felt for a while surfaced.
W-what are you doing here...? I mean Nee-hee-hee look at what we got here! Seems like someone is back from round 2!
Don't worry, this time i'll be good and let you go unharmed.
I even brought s-something *chuckle* as a sign of peace.
Upon saying that he offer Eito one of the Panta/granades and the cheap plastic axe.
See, this stuff is going to totally help you out!
*MUSE glitches away. Behind him, Alphinaud could feel a gun barrel pressed against the back of his head.*
Sup, Alphie. Being a pawn is really uncool, y'know? Check.
Like me to Mate ya?
(Are you behind the dragon knights or Kokichi, MUSE?)
(Neither. I'm behind Alphinaud. As I stated in my post.)
Eito glares at Kokichi with a far greater intensity than he's shown before, looking as if he's ready to commit murder that instant. His hand tightens into a fist, as the young man forces himself to walk towards Kokichi. Standing over him, Eito grabs the Panta bottles, looks at them for a single moment, then throws them towards the dragon knights with as much strength as possible. "What did you do with those bottles?"
As Eito grabs all the bottles, Kokichi notices the dragon knights and after tossing the axes and get the sword on his back he would hide behind Eito in order to not get hit.
He would then take out an another bottle of Panta (normal this time) and drink from it.
Let's say i added something a little bit more explosive to the mix....
Still, you're sooo boring!
Not only you stole almost all of my Panta but now you didn't even try one of my axes, they were sooo heavy and expensive to buy.
He would then start making weird faces at Eito from behind his back, hoping he would not notice.
(Questions: one can I play as my character's partner as well? They are normally together and do I want to play his partner to, and second shouldn't I play the main villain? I am pretty sure that is normal but I am double checking because of a lot of people snapping at me for playing a lot of characters on my other account, just making sure that those are both alright)
Alphinaud grunts, breathing heavily and swallowing whatever was in his throat as the head of the gun forces him to quickly tilt his head forward.
"I fight for my own reasons. Darkness is instrumental to offsetting the calamity in a far off world."
He tries to swiftly turn around to face MUSE, all while tightening his muscles in preparation for conflict
"Even if I can't sway the leader, would it not go amiss to keep even a little of their manpower for oneself?"
He frowns, gripping his grimoire tightly
(A: As long as you label them, I'm fine with it. B) Obviously.)
*MUSE smirks at Alphinaud. She scratches her hood with her gun.*
So, you're researching the darkness huh? Ooh. Little Alphie looking into the void. But you know what they say about that.
*MUSE takes out the crystal Devon gave her earlier.*
Besides, there's more than one way to get the power your looking for. Though if you wanna keep playing the villain, I guess I can play the hero until I get bored. Sound good?
(edited by -MUSE-)
A black dragon whipped through the air way behind the group, coming up to them at high speeds
"We've no other choice, otherwise they would strike us down without a second thought" Devon called
The dragon came from behind the group and speedily flew towards Devon, wrapping it's tail around him and standing beside him, Devon's eyes went wide and he... smiled? He looked at the dragon and hugged it,
Darvin: "Devon, it's been a long time"
"Yes it has, Darvin, I thought I lost you buddy" Devon said
A light laugh echoed through the halls as a pair of doors were slammed open, a lady with long black hair and glowing red eyes emerged, she approached the group, obviously she was the queen,
"Well well well, if it isn't my son, might as well surrender, dear, as your death will be slower and much more painful otherwise" the queen spoke (I forgot what name I gave her...)
"See my point?" Devon asked
(My answer's the same as MUSE's.)
Eito growls angrily, but ultimately turns around and ignores Kokichi, extending his right hand towards the dragon knights. A floating blue card appears over his open palm, disappearing with the sound of shattering glass as Eito closes his fist over the card.
Bright blue flames ignite behind Eito for a brief moment, forming into the large figure of a hellenic, bronze suit of armor, partially covered by a floating scarlet cloak. The Persona holds a gigantic bow, bigger even than itself, staring directly at the Dragon Knights.
"Odysseus, burn them all to ash! Maragion!" In response to Eito's impatient command, the Persona draws back the bow's string, a flaming arrow appearing out of nowhere, before being launched directly towards the group of dragon knights, exploding into flame as soon as it got in range. Odysseus' user doesn't even bother registering the Queen's entrance, simply staring at the burning knights with a sadistic grin.
(edited by Eito)
Seems like he was ignored, so since there was still something he needed to ask he decided to get his attention the hard way.
His half empty Panta bottle would fly towards Eito and cover him in it if he got hit by it.
Heeeey, hey, hey hey hey!
Actually... He thought, this would be a question for everyone present and so, he screamed from the top of his lungs.
HEY EVERYONE, WHERE ARE THE MONEY I WAS PROMISED?
He then gets an idea for later and quiets down to listen to the Queen.
(I think her name was something like Narda?)
The queen sighed, watching as her knights burned, she stepped forward, sending a ball of darkness similar to the one Devon used earlier except much more powerful at MUSE,
"Son, do you want to see these friends get destroyed like the others? Lighty? Seavar? Icy?" The queen asked
A blind rage filled Devon's eyes, his hands started shaking, and his eyes glowed even brighter,
"DON'T EVEN SAY THEIR NAMES!!" Devon shouted
Darkness starts glowing around Devon,
"My little sister and the one I loved... and so many of my friends... you killed them... I won't stop until this fight is over... much as I wish peace could be held in my family, I know that will never happen... a hero and a villain are gonna battle... sometimes until the death... that's how far I will go, if need be..." Devon shouted
Devon climbed onto Darvin's back, the leader of the group formerly known as the dragon warriors was ready for a fight to the death,
"Heh, seems i'm getting ahead of myself. In my haste, I had forgotten to make the proposition to the woman herself."
Alphinaud turns towards the queen, slowly marching towards her.
"Your grace, I have to come to offer something of a partnership. I'll have a straight answer or none at all, as time is short."
Alphinaud opens his grimoire and prepares a spell, in case he was attacked by the main party and if the queen had refused his offer. In want of ensuring his protection, the young fiend stepped back from the queen and any other potential hostiles, while having his familiar stand in front of him, jumping towards any oncoming attackers.
Hmm. This could be fun.
*MUSE glitch teleports next to Alphinaud. She looked over to the queen, smirking.*
I'll ask the same as Alphie hear. I'll work with you and help ya out, but only if you can offer me more than one rock like Princey over here has.
* She spun her glitching pistol in her hand. A red light glows from behind her visor**
We have a deal?
Teddie chugs an Amrita Soda™. He's not really doing much, seems like everyone here has it handled.
"Kokichi, for your own safety, I would advise not doing that again. It irritates me, quite a bit."
Eito shoots Kokichi a glare that could freeze volcanoes. However, instead of trying to murder him, as he did once before, Eito simply takes of his now-dirty jacket and ties it around his waist, revealing his dark hair, which seems to have somewhat lightened from pitch black to a dark grey. "If you'd like to make yourself useful, please do so."
Finishing his piece and ignoring Kokichi's question, Eito draws his blades and walks next to Devon, scowling towards the Queen. "Really, I expected it from the elf, but from you too, Glitch? It's reasonable, honestly, but it still pisses me off."
Reaching to his waist, Eito pulls a vial from one of his pockets, and downs it instantly, his spent energy required for the Maragion replenishing. "So, Princey, what now?"
*MUSE shrugs at Eito's accusation.*
What's wrong for working for something? It's not like I care who wins and who loses. Might as well get some information I can use out of it, right mr " I don't care about money"?
Narda chuckles, as a boy that looked exactly like Devon except a little shorter and wearing very different clothes stepped up,
Varin: "very well, that gives us the upper hand, can't turn to your team now, can you?"
Narda: "oh Varin, my dear, don't get ahead of yourself, until I say okay they aren't with our group, but yes we accept your deals,"
(Yes two main villains, but the evil twin twist is a classic, is it not?)
Well then, "make yourself useful" you said!
I'll show you! I'll show all of you!
Seeying as the situation was getting a bit heated, the fact that he ran out of panta bombs and his unwilliness to fight, Kokichi did what he could do best and so he made a run for it.
With his remarkable speed he got slip past everyone and entered the doors the queen came out of.
If anyone wants to join me instead of doing all of this fighting feel free to do so, otherwise.... I'm keeping everything i'll find here for me!
And with that he disappeared in the dark, (what he'll find in there is up to you GM) smiling all the way.
"Fair enough, glitch-face, but God, I haven't even met those two before and I already want to burn this place to the ground simply from hearing the sound of their bloody voices."
Eito scowls once more, tapping on the ground with the tips of his swords as he glares at the two so called 'royals'. "Honestly, I get why Princey would want to take them down, now."
Though Eito glances towards Kokichi, making a mental note to chase him down later, he doesn't move from his spot. "So, are we doin' this or are we just gonna sit around and have a tea party?"
"In all honesty, I would rather the tea party."
Alphinaud keeps up a stern look, tensing his body and writing geometric symbols in his grimoire, the carbuncle jumping ahead to tackle Eito at the ankle, biting and scratching. At the culmination of Alphinaud's writing, a bolt of dark energy materializes and jolts towards Eito without warning, consisting of a deadly contagion which would instantly debalite the target upon hitting, albeit wearing off shortly after due to limited aether to draw upon.
"Yes, I thought you would." Tyrfing and Murgleis ignite as Eito charges ahead. When the carbuncle reaches his leg, he merely forces it forward, almost ignoring the creature in it's entirety.
Of course, when he spots the bolt of energy, Eito instinctively rolls to the side, but the weight of the carbuncle unbalances him, and his essentially trips and falls on his backside, still dodging the attack, but landing in a vulnerable position. "Odysseus!"
The Persona manifests immediately, shooting at Alphinaud thrice, a new arrow appearing to take the place of the last every time he shoots. Meanwhile, Eito grabs at the carbuncle and tries to pull it off his leg, and then run it through with Tyrfing, should he succeed.
Ah ah ah.
*One of MUSE's clones appears behind Eito and swings it's glitchy Baseball bat at his head.*
Hurting animals? How uncool can you get? Geez.
Narda whistled and more dragon knights along with dragons by themselves appeared, Varin mounted the dragon at his side, it was transparent and grey, obviously a dragon made purely out of shadows that took a physical form, the dragon sent a bolt of darkness at Devon and Darvin, Darvin swiftly flew to the side and let loose a ball of darkness,
a pure white light engulfed Devon out of nowhere, when it faded his hair was blonde and his eyes were blue, his clothes also switched from black ripped jeans and a torn up black t-shirt to an outfit that was more like something you would seem a mage with light powers wear, a ball of light formed in his hand and he sent it at the opponents,
Varin and his dragon managed to dodge and Varin sent a ball of darkness, knocking Devon back off of Darvin and onto the ground, Devon sends another ball of light at Varin, but didn't have time to charge it up, meaning the attack would do little damage, but it was small enough that Varin couldn't see it that well,
Kokichi would find a large throne room, armor lined the walls, and a sword made of lightning rested in the center of the room, (will explain later)
Disheartened that his attack had missed, Alphinaud had slowed a bit, getting his shoulder caught by the edge of the attacl by the time he had resigned to dodge.
"Moonstone, to me!"
The carbuncle had slipped through Eito's grip and returned to Alphinaud's side, creating a magical aura which thickened the skin of Alphinaud and his allies as well as hastening the body's natural healing process.
"Least Varin doesn't know how to wield light" Devon murmured
Light was known to have many healing abilities, Varin had never bothered learning how to wield light but when Devon found out that he was capable he worked hard on learning how to fight with it, though he had completely mastered darkness so he mainly battled with it
Eito rolls forward, guessing at MUSE's attack by her voice, and dodging the bat. Observing the carbuncle return to Alphinaud, Eito makes distance from the MUSE clone, wary and prepared for the others to appear as well. "When the animal is rabid, I consider it more accurate to call it 'self-defense'."
The Persona User sheathes his two swords and instead draws one of the pistols holstered on the back of his waist. He fires bullets full of Ice Dust towards Alphinaud's feet, seeking to freeze him to the spot. With his free hand, Eito snaps his fingers, pointing upwards. "Matarukaja."
Odysseus aims towards the ceiling, shooting yet another arrow, this one pulsing a pleasant yellow. As soon as the arrow reaches the ceiling, it explodes into brilliant golden light, showering Eito and Devon in particular. Instantly they'd feel energized, the strength of their attacks intensifying. "Come on, Princey, up and at 'em, unless you rather we get thrown out of here and six feet into the ground!"
Psh. No animal that cute can be dodgy.
*MUSE smirks, her two clones appearing at her side. She aims her gun at Eito as her clones rush forward, zigzagging to confuse Eito. The knife clone leapt at Odysseus, goign to stab the persona in the chest. The Baseball clone swings at Eito then vanishes as the real MUSE fires her bullet at him.*
"And if we're getting technical, you'd be subject to castle law."
Alphinaud sidesteps the ice bullets at his feet, his ankle getting chilled by the air around the ice, beginning the same incantation once more. In the span of a few seconds, a pathogenic bolt appears once more and thrusts through the air directly towards Eito.
Kokichi decides to look around the room, to see if there was anything hidden in it. After a while of not finding anything he starts to inspect the armor.
This is too heavy! Who would wear something like this? Tsk garbage!
he tries to kick it but he gets a little hurt instead and so he glances over the sword and tries to grab it.
It seemed lighter than the armor but it would still way to heavy for him to move it and on top of that, it looked like it could zap him.
Hmmmm, i know what to do!
I'll make someone else move it for me
and with that he makes his way back outside, hoping that anyone would be done with the fight and fall for his lie.
Heeeeey everyooone i found a giant buffet and the gold down there, can anyone help me move it?
"I said don't call me that, please," Devon said
Light struck from above, creating a physical attack barrier, protecting the persona and Eito, Devon launched forward, landing in front of Eito, Darvin lands beside Eito, one of Devon's eyes returns to red as does some of his hair returning to black, he sends a mixed attack at the Narda and them, the dragons Narda called upon shielding her, but Varin rolls to the side in an attempt to dodge, a suscessful attempt, knowing that after that Devon would be vulnerable he launches, striking Devon in the chest with his sword and throwing him backwards, Darvin sends a beam of darkness at Varin, launching him back at Narda, slamming the true dark prince into the queen, they slammed into a giant statue, Devon stands up,
"Wow, almost like it came out of a comedy" he chuckled
Obviously He was hurt really bad, he was back to his dark self, he started to fall to the ground, luckily, Darvin caught him
Darvin: "Dev, are you okay?"
"Yeah... it'll heal" Devon said
He stands up straight, shaking his head, getting a laugh from Kokichi
(edited by DevonNevera)
Disregarding Devon and Darvin both, Eito still blindly shoots towards Alphinaud after glancing at his moving figure. He focuses on dodging the dark bolt, figuring he'd prefer to take a bullet rather than a magical attack. Thus, Eito completely ignores MUSE's clones, grunting and lowering his stance in pain as one clone's knife pierces Odysseus' armor.
That pain soon proves to be insignificant to the feeling of a bullet entering Eito's shoulder, but still, he bites his tongue and doesn't fall. "Is that all you got? It ain't exactly my first time getting shot, you know. Alas, I have more pressing issues. Agidyne!"
Odysseus turns towards Alphinaud, and with unnerving focus, draws back his bowstring. A new arrow of fire is created, even longer than the previous one. The moment it is launched, it speeds through the air at incredible speed, exploding into bright flames as soon as it gets close, melting everything in it's vicinity.
All I got? Nah, son. I got more than just a bullet.
*MUSE's eyes glowed.*
*The bullet stuck in Eito's arm would begining frantically glitching out and turning black, starting to burn like acid. If Eito didn't act quickly, the bullet would explode into MUSE's Kill Code, creating a black, acid-like code cubes where it hit and likely take Eito's arm off with it.*
I'm a living virus, remember? Let's see how good ya firewalls are, Red.
Varin and Narda having been sent pretty far back were safe from the fire, a crystal of light left Devon's torso and went to Eito, healing him, but taking some of Devon's strength, Devon climbed onto Darvin's back again, the two of them went straight for Varin and Narda, a ball of darkness formed in Darvin's mouth, while a blade made of darkness appeared in Devon's hand, Darvin let's the ball of darkness loose, hitting both Narda and Varin, followed by a sword attack fro. Devon, he wasn't as fast as he normally would be but fast enough to land several hits,
The sword would spark up a bit, glowing lightly, the sword would be safe to touch as long as you weren't getting hit with it, and it would be oddly light weight, with it was an odd set of lightning armor, light weight like the sword,
(edited by DevonNevera)
Tsk, no one even listens to what i say and instead they do all of this lame fighting...
as the fight continued he totally forgot he still had a the noise sword tied on his back and so seeying as Eito is in pain due to the bullet he'd try to get closer and to remove it the hard way.
When he started using the sword tho a piercing noise would diffuse all around and he hoped that would distract any of the people present.
If i manage to do this you'll owe me everything nee-hee-hee
Even your quote of the reward.
Alphinaud's cloth is caught by a blast of fire, becoming tathered and less protective. Alphinaud himself would curl up in anticipation of the attack, albeit able to avoid being burned alive. He simply dusts himself off as if he just fell down the stairs into a giant cobweb.
"Well, it seems like things here will be evenly matched without me. If anyone needs my help, call thy name."
Alphinaud slowly walks towards the back of the palace, where Kokichi just left from.
Eito grins at the fiery results of his attack, only for his smirk to turn into a hissing scowl as the bullet began feeling more like acid than anything else.
Eito moves to remove the bullet wildly, only to hiss at the feeling of Kokichi digging into his flesh to remove it, along with the ear-piercing noise the weapon he used to do it made. "God, even when you help, you always find a way to cause me pain, don't you?"
Even though he's practically insulting Kokichi, Eito begins chuckling as he feels the bullet exiting his body, and the wound it caused being healed by Devon. "Marakunda!"
Odysseus once more fires an arrow into the air, this one a gloomy blue, which explodes into a dark cloud, casting a shadow on MUSE, Varin and Narda. They felt sluggish and ineffective, their attacks becoming weaker. Meanwhile, Eito draws his second handgun, the bullets infused with Fire Dust, and begins shooting at MUSE. "That was a cool toy, here's mine!"
Before Devon could get some distance Narda stands up and darkness erupts from her, blasting Devon with a hit powerful enough to knock him back, Darvin grabs Devon and carries him to the others,
The lightning sword gleams brightly, glowing and sparking,
If you like this attempt to kill you, your gonna love this attempt to kill you.
*The bullet exploded into Kill Code which gathered around her hand and formed as a sword. She spun her gun in the other hand and smirked.*
Ready for the next round, Alphie? ...Alphie?
*She watched as Alphinaud walked off.*
Aplhinaud, where ya going? Nyah, Alphie!

(I really want someone to bring out the sword...)
Darvin: "Dev? You okay? Buddy?"
"Darvin... I'll be fine..." Devon coughed

(Eito is busy laughing at MUSE, and has neither seen the sword nor knows about it's general existence at this point.)
"What's wrong, glitch-face? Can't fight one on one?" The grin on Eito's face turns almost sadistic, as he holsters his pistol once more, grabbing onto his swords and igniting them, lighting up the area further.
He lowers his posture and prepares to charge, only to be stopped at the sight of Devon, an irritated expression overtaking his previously smug one. "Really, Princey, you chose now, of all times, to fuck up?"
At this, Eito takes a more defensive posture around the downed Devon, staring down the queen and her son, while Odysseus idly shoots at MUSE, mostly to distract her. "Got anything that'll save us now?"
*MUSE glitches back a few paces, leave a clone in every step, blocking the attacks.*
It's not one-on-one. There's you and the blue haired brat now. It's not even numbers. That's not fair. Pah. Welp, I guess you punks win this time. Good luck, queeny. Ya gonna need that superficial shit to win, ya feel me? Heh ha.
*With that, MUSE would stick her tongue out and vanish into glitchy cubes, like a megaman character dying.*
Alphinaud cocks his head towards MUSE, speaking in an apologetic tone
"Ah, I figured you had things well in hand, so I thought my time could've been spent on more capable challenges. Nonetheless, i'll continue to fight."
Doing so, Alphinaud approaches Devon and reaches towards his torso, a green energy flowing from Alphinaud's hand to the injuries. The aether serves to mend Devon's body, staving off the threat of death.
"As for you, i'd really suggest leaving before you get yourself or others killed."
And after such an elaborate farewell.
*MUSE reappears, swining her legs while sitting on a railing next Alphinaud.*
You really know how to ruin a girls fun, ya catch me? Still, if your still playin, I can play harder.
"What, you think Kokichi counts as a combatant? He's more annoying than anything else, but hey, he nearly killed me once, so I can't say anything."
Eito sarcastically waves towards MUSE as she leaves, though he keeps a wary eye on Alphinaud as he approaches and begins healing Devon. "What, are you gonna fight on our side, all of a sudden? Ain't that breakin' your principles or something?"
Eito speaks while observing the two enemies, ready for an attack. While doing so, however, he spies both the glowing sword and MUSE. The latter sours his expression, while the former brings about curiosity, as he looks down at Devon. "Oi, the hell is that?"
Kokichi would not waste time and get an another bottle of Panta, this time finishing it before throwing it in a random direction.
I'm getting boreeeed why don't we just go ahead and grab the totally awesome stuff i saw there instead of being here?
Also now that i saved you you'll be my subordinate again! Right? Right? Or you'll give me your part of the reward.
Be careful on lying to me, i can spot them easily you know...
Narda glared at Alphinaud,
Narda: "what are you doing? Kill him! Don't heal him!"
Devon seemed completely surprised, the injury on his chest disappeared, a slight mumble could be heard, but was so quiet none could hear what he said, just hear that he spoke
Alphinaud tilts their head towards Eito curiously whilst shaking their head at the queen
"Enemies or not, I have no taste for pointless bloodshed."
He then looks at his carbuncle, pointing a finger at Kokichi.
"The battlefield is no place for children."
The shimmering carbuncle then rushes Kokichi, snarling at them and scratching their ankles.
Nitra: (remembered her name) "you're either with us or against us, helping the enemy tells me you are against us, just like my little knight who was foolish enough to switch sides... it did hurt me to kill him, but he was allied with my rebellious son as well... I will kill you to... unless you kill him"
Nitra's eyes showed that she would have no hesitation, however, if you looked at Varin, he seemed to be regretting his mother's actions, a distant look in his glowing red eyes,
Tsk get this thing away from me and other than that...
I am the supreme leader of a giant secret criminal organization, if i wanted i could call all of my subordinates and finish everyone off.
He then reached for his pocket looking for his phone and unsurpisingly there was no reception whatsoever.
Ah, seems like i can't whooops but you should be wary on turning on us again!
If you do my organization is gonna take all of your family hostage until you leave us alone!
Soooo are we moving or not?
Eito stares at Kokichi idly for a moment, before cracking a grin at his demands. The taller man sheathes a blade and leans down to pat his head, before promptly walking away from him, ignoring the shrieking of the queen. "I think you know I can't go back, now, Kokichi. Maybe it's happen sometime in the far-away future, who knows?"
Eito shrugs, his smirk growing further as he pats Alphinaud's shoulder. "Right, if you're not gonna murder us, then I hope you don't mind holding the fort while I go grab the shiny loot." Thus, without even giving Aplhinaud the time to answer, Eito begins sprinting towards the strange, gleaming sword.
The platform the sword was on said something about someone named Bolton, the storm dragon knight, the sword must have belonged to him...
Setsuna cautiously walks into the castle, hearing the chaos ahead, she draws out her staff and slowly approaches where the fighting is, hoping that there was just an argument
