DAEMON (Excerpt 2)

So this is going to become my huge work in progress. Not much might make sense but I am hopefully going to be doing this project! Thank you for reading!

Damien sat in class as the teacher drew on and on about the infamous DAEMON and what they have done for us. He had drew a blank shortly after she had began. They go over this every year. The same story. The same tragedies. Everything leading up to the blind obsession with DAEMON, our “lord and saviors” who would have known that commercialism would be what saved us? His ears perked up at the mention of a name.

“Now we have a guest speaker, Erik Knight from the DAEMON family. He will be talking to you all about the wonders of our heroes, please give him a firm welcome!” The teacher ordered as everyone mindlessly clapped their hands. Except Damien.

“Good morning everyone, as you know I am the son of Evan Knight, one of the founding fathers children, as I carry on that legacy I would like to go into more detail about the things we have done to help everyone maintain their lives here!” Erik said in a too-cheerful voice.

Damien was suddenly filled with anger and annoyance. This Erik was the same stuck up snob that used to be well-versed in bullying. He used to pick on all the children in hopes of making himself feel better. Often rushing into a straight out fist fight that would always excuse Erik of his misguiding, and punish the one he beat up. Damien had spent much of his time in the “Room of Punishment” because of this boys ruthless actions. Sighing loudly Damien began to draw on the tablet in front of him.

He began to scribble the designs of a long-coat he had wished he could create. As an avid nerd he took great interest in following through with the Demon Organization, becoming an officer so he can see the Drylands. The mall that had become his home has grown thin on his sanity and he wanted out. Erik would constantly remind him of the ruthless rules of becoming a Longcoat. His words echoed.

“Damien boy, you are a fool to think you can just walk into a position of power like that! The first rule of becoming a Longcoat is being an avid user of the Forgotten Arts, or Magic because I know you aren’t too smart. You need to be able to survive the onslaught of the ruthless lands beyond our wall. You will never achieve that goal. Perhaps maybe being in Public Security would be better fitted for someone of your stature?”

Biting his tongue in anger Damien scribbled away at his tablet. The long-coats granted to their officers were incredible pieces of technology but as in everything else it could always use some improvement. Sighing at his creation he looked up to see the class clapping. Maybe Erik was right? He didn’t possess any sort of magical powers.

The office door flew open in frustration as a man with a small tuff of hair on his chin and a pair of slim glasses wrote feverishly on his tablet.

“Dr. Grimhold, we need you to explain this mess now!” The man shouted.

He was a huge guy, his hair neatly shaved away. Muscles rippling through his clothes, wounds and tattoos covered his body. He was the chief of the military here, not the direct leader, that was a member of DAEMON of course, but second in command. Reporting directly to the council they rely so heavily on.

“What are you referring to Officer Stronghold?” the doctor said as he pulled at his facial hair a little.

“These mutant monsters that keep lining up outside our walls, I think they are being organized! I need to stop it at the source and they are not easy to destroy,” Stronghold yelled spraying the room in spit.

“This is a new one for the mutants, come here take a look at this!” The doctor spoke as he flipped the tablet towards the angry man.

“Golems? That is what you are calling them? What are they?” He said his voice quieting ever so slightly.

“Monstrous beasts that were formed from the decaying corpses of the mutants. I believe they somehow used the earth around them to form some sort of armor and structure to their forms. This is not unlike the Rock Snakes that slither around here and there. They are snakes that mutated with the rocks they used to live in to form armor of their own. However, the Golems I believe were once human. So they are much more harmful than silly snakes!” The doctor said fixing his glasses.

“So what do we do about them?” Stronghold said concerned, a feature he didn’t show much.

Kasey (Dr. Grimhold) and Davis (Stronghold) have a strong history together. Davis would never admit it but Kasey is the one that kept him alive as they tried to escape a mission gone wrong. His instructions clear and concise to get the poor Cadet out of a stubborn situation. Left alone after a mutant onslaught Davis had to arrive safely. Kasey needed the guys findings and walked him through survival. Although Kasey would never admit it was just science that made him help the jerk of a man, he has grown fond of the bloke.

“We need to find their weakness, I hate to ask, but I need Kaileen!” Kasey spoke softly.

“Ugh, fine, I will get him to report to you as soon as he is free!” Davis said as he rushed out the door.

“You mutants, he may be right, who is helping you?” Kasey said with worry.

DAEMON Excerpt

I’ve got a crazy mind, and so many weird things to try and convulse into one thing. This is a little bit of what I am thinking. Needs a lot of development but… “Try not! Do or Do Not. There is no try.” So come with me on this wacky adventure! (I promise I will make it better!) 

The phone was suddenly beeping a loud obnoxious noise as a man rolled over reluctantly in his bed. The screen flashed red at him, emergency in capital letters. He picked it up and answered.

“Evening Officer Kaileen, I am terribly sorry to disturb you so late at night but we need you. I will brief you once you arrive. Please be quick, time is of the essence,” it spoke as it fizzled out.

The man stood up and ran to the bathroom, splashing cold water on his face as he quickly fixed his messy hair. His brown hair hung in short locks alongside his face, reminding him that he should really get a haircut. His brown eyes were weary with the remnants of lost sleep. His face was stern and his frown was the most noticeable feature on him. He sighed as he quickly spiked up his hair and walked out to his closet. In his twenties he had achieved a lot for himself. Starting in the Demon Organization project at eighteen and now a full fledged Officer, a Longcoat to top it all off. The highest rank one can achieve. He was a noticeably bright and gifted young man. Opening his closet he quickly typed a passcode and two panels pulled aside to reveal a long coat hanging and a walking stick clamped to the wall.

He pulled the white coat from its home and quickly adjusted it to his body. He had the pockets filled with supplies for his mission and slipped his phone into a special pocket that controlled the long coat. It hummed to life as he plucked his walking stick from its holster. Magnetizing it to the inside of his coat he slipped a pair of glasses from a reinforced pocket and attached them to his face. It suddenly displayed a HUD menu and his surroundings were soon dissected before his very eyes and he felt pretty powerful with all this technology.

He glanced at the watch on his wrist and made his way out of the room. The great DAEMON corporation had designed super malls back in the day that were designed to defend against almost any tragedy, after the great nuclear war started by the Koreas they had moved the small remaining population to these places and started their own lives all over again. The vast plains that were wiped out and poisoned remain a battleground against ruthless mutations.

It was thanks to magic that they could even withstand this great force of reckoning. Everyone had forgotten how to use it, except those few that were gifted. A Longcoat was only selected after proving that his body had enough magic in it to sustain him in the harsh “drylands” as they were now called. The others used a mental link with avatars that were created many years ago to withstand the treachery beyond their sanctuary. The elevator beeped as Officer Kaileen stepped inside and slapped his wrist against the reader.

“Good Evening Officer Kaileen, shall we speed you to the Skylab?” it beeped.

“Yes Adrian, thank you,” the officer said adjusting the strange glasses on his face.

Suddenly like a rocket the elevator was blasted down. There were one hundred floors, a corporate floor, a Skylab, and the three sanctions below meaning a fast elevator was necessary to traverse the 105 floors that had been created. The building was massive, a hundred floors ten rooms on each floor and several elevators on each one. Kaileen looked anxiously at his wrist as he finally saw the secret back door open. Kaileen stepped inside to see a huddle of several men each holding a tablet anxiously as they stared at him.

“Finally,” one said, he was a short man, ruffled black hair, stern face, and piercing hazel eyes.

“Good evening Dr. Neas, what was the sudden emergency call for?” Kaileen asked worry laced in his voice.

“The gates are under attack. Your three soldiers are holding them back quite successfully but we feel it might be beneficial to pull one of the best. We suggest that you take your Esper with you, it might be needed. Are you full up on your magic sir?” Dr. Neas asked anxiously adjusting the pair of black frames on his face.

“Yeah, lets do this, where are the cadets?” Officer Kaileen asked as he buttoned his jacket.

“Area four of the Drylands, they will be expecting you. Cadets Brent, Quinn, and Bedard are happily waiting for you.

“Dr. Collins, is the link forged?” the officer said as he rushed over to the transport mat in the corner of the room. Dr. Collins peered above his clipboard and nodded at him.

“Send me to area three, I will flank them from behind and offer my backup to surprise the foes, estimation on how many?” he asked stressed.

“25 sir,” Dr. Neas swallowed.

“25?!” the officer screeched, “the mutants are getting smarter!”

Suddenly a bloom of light filled the room as the officer was dematerialized suddenly the warm arid air filled his lungs angrily as his magic ward it off. He coughed to adjust to the temperature, the air here was quite distasteful and he already missed the organic air they offered inside. Suddenly his left lens lit up and he could see himself standing, looking at the source. Prancing up to him was a fox. It had short black hair, golden eyes, and its ears were perked up in anticipation of seeing its owner.

“Sly!” Kaileen smirked as it leapt into his arms.

Sly was Kaileen’s Esper, a tamed creature from the Drylands. It was a fox that had been granted magical abilities from the nuclear reaction, only a few creatures had this luxury. Espers had become the norm for the Demon Organization as more and more vicious creatures roamed the lands. They immediately ran ahead to join the others. Sly trotted behind him with curiosity and alertness. The dry sand crunched loudly under the officer’s feet as he trudged forward.

Artesia had been split into 4 livable sections after the attacks. Dry desert known as the Drylands, swampy marsh known as the the Wetlands, thick jungles known as the Greenlands, and mountain peaks known as the Highlands. There was a sixth known region but it was iced over and inhabitable long ago, known as the Icelands. Each one had their advantages and disadvantages. The officer pushed forward already feeling the heat pounding at him despite the darkness that loomed overhead. His coat began channeling a cooling liquid throughout to cool him down to regular temperature. Sure magic could do it too if practiced well enough, but why waste your Mana reserves when you can use the vastness of technology?

Swords could be heard through the desert and Officer Kaileen ran ahead and unclipped his walking stick, separating the two to revel a cane sword. Each officer has their preference of their weapons, with the impossibility of mining gunpowder after it was all lit up and destroyed when the bombs hit, melee weapons were the primary from now on. As a full fledged Longcoat Kaileen had designed his to have a tube to protect the blade and provide a channel for his magic for long ranged attacks and the sword part of course to slice things. The whole piece was made from titanium one of the hardest metals to forge and use as a weapon but formidable it was.

Officer Kaileen charged mana into the bottom half of his cane sword and blasted out a blast of fire to blind and burn the foes. He leapt into the air and began fencing against the creatures that were unaware of what was going on. Before him were mutated humanoid forms that had merged their bodies with pieces of earth and metals to resemble something of a Golem, which is what they were known as. Dumb as hell, but ruthless and nearly impenetrable. They swung aimlessly clubs made of wood and obsidian glass trying to batter their attacker. A slice through one of them could be heard as it exploded into black smoke.

“Seth!” a voice cried out, but Kaileen was too busy to respond.

Sly was on the tail of their Espers, somehow this had become the norm each creature, mutated or otherwise would partner with mutated or semi-mutated creatures throughout the world. The Golems enjoyed the company of rocks, therefore they had rock snakes that slithered on the ground. Some of them could be the size of a subway train, but the Golems they were fighting were small imps. Sly tossed them aside like chew toys as it battled.

Unholy Knight

Ziron and Eldon woke up with a slight pain in their sides. Sleeping on the floor of a cave was not the most comfortable thing. Aegis had awoken before them and stared out into the mossy waters. He looked around to see his guests awake.

“Good morning,” he said with a warm smile.

“What will the world greet us today old friend?” Eldon said as he pulled himself up off the ground.

“Where are we supposed to be going again?” Ziron said confused.

“The village of Mitosis, it is said to be hidden amongst the fog of this mossy place. There is word an unholy knight resides there on its outskirts and their provisions are running dangerously low. I do not know why something of that magnitude is wondering about but it is very concerning. Especially since it is smart enough to know how to keep the village hostage. Usually they just wonder about aimlessly hunting for small animals to feed upon.

“Interesting?” Aegis said stroking his chin.

“I know, it is almost like someone has sent him to do the very thing he is doing,” Eldon said concern, like always, laced in his voice. Rubbing the pain eating away at his side.

“You do know you’re getting old right?” Aegis said suddenly.

“Oh shut your trap boy, there is yet so much to accomplish. My age has no warrant on the ability to protect others.

“I know, I can’t believe he is still foolish enough to keep up this good fight,” Ziron laughed.

“You going to replace me someday boy?” Eldon said with a smirk.

“Highly unlikely, I am far to mismanaged to achieve that!” Ziron laughed out loudly.

“Just keep in mind that people do not take kindly to those that are not human, you don’t show it of course but your word will get out and they won’t trust you. I know, I’ve lived this life!” Aegis said sadly.

“Tragically so I’m afraid,” Eldon said with faint anger in his voice.

“We I suppose we should be off,” Aegis said with a quick gather of his things.

“I suppose we must,” Ziron complained as they headed out of the cave back into the wet abyss.

The depths seemed much more uninviting as they climbed through the murky waters and waded through the mist that had suddenly begin to clamber. Aegis kept quite, but Ziron noticed Eldon liming about slightly. Something was not okay, this battle would be on him. Eldon was far too tired and sore to face off against this unholy knight or whatever he called it. Ziron felt something tugging at him, something was going wrong.

“Foolish human, listen to me. You’ve suppressed me long enough!” The voice cried out inside Ziron.

“What do you want?” Ziron appeased the demon.

“Your old friend their has been poisoned. You are a massive fool for not noticing it!” Sapphire yelled.

“What are you talking about how?” Ziron asked telepathically.

“You too have been poisoned I can’t believe you didn’t notice,” Sapphire said disappointment laced in his voice.

“Why though? Is Aegis okay?”

“I believe the Vidus inside him burns up poison. I repel it. However Eldon is only human, he doesn’t have that luxury. I just don’t know how we were poisoned?

“We did fight a death rider think he had anything to do with it?”

“I doubt it, it doesn’t leak poison like some other creatures do.”

“You aren’t seriously considered Aegis did this are you?”

The silence was the only answer Ziron needed.

“HELLO DEMON!” A voice suddenly pierced through our heads.

“What? How?” Sapphire coughed as he felt his power slipping.

“What is going on?” Ziron spoke when his body began to weaken.

“I think the poison is working? How!” Sapphire cried.

“I should have known better than to trust some stupid human to do this job, his poison was easily repelled by you. Foolish fool!” The outsider echoed.

“Who are you?” Ziron asked as the water in his shoes suddenly felt much heavier.

“I am the unholy knight. I am the master of the universe. I poisoned you spineless creatures. I will end you for meddling in my plans!” It screamed the pain filled Ziron’s head.

“Eldon,” Ziron whispered weakly, “what is this unholy knight?”

“Oh boy! You don’t sound too hot! They are creatures of darkness their head is nothing more than an eye, they stare into you and manipulate your thoughts. Quite ruthless beasts really. However, they usually are not tapped into that ability. They struggle to even walk let alone use their abilities to manipulate the thoughts of others. Weak dumb creatures in all honesty. At least usually!” Eldon clapped.

“This one is not so weak!

The Navigational

Death Rider Continued

Ziron stood up and encapsulated his body with a thick layer of light as a massive fox began to appear around him. He rushed towards the terrifying knight and clashed with its blade with vengeance. The crashing of claws and metal echoed through the mossy plains. Picking up the massive creature Ziron leapt into the air and tossed it into the moss laid depths.

Eldon struck the mare with extreme power he had somehow summoned. It was blasted back across the murky waters. It howled in discomfort as it stood up again. Eldon approached it carefully, his sword glowing with a bright white light. He aimed it at the beast and chanted quickly. Suddenly a blast of light pierced the creatures flesh. It screamed in agony as Eldon kept filling it with power.

The Death Rider looked around angrily, was he really just tossed by this mere tiny creature? Outraged it leapt into the air. Striking Ziron down with a screaming passion.

“You are all traitorous fools that need to be vaporized by my massive power!” It howled in frustration.

Ziron stood up instantly from the blow, somehow he was much more powerful than before. He would need to figure out why later! He leapt into the air once more and gathered the energy in his jaw. Aegis pulled himself up from the mossy prisons he had been trapped and turned to flames. Teleporting behind the massive Death Rider. Grabbing it with his gauntlets he laughed manically.

“Well, well, well, what do we have here? A subdued Death Rider? “What a pity, what would your kind think now that you are outclassed by the very thing you despise?” Aegis laughed.

“You disgusting creature get off of me! Traitorous swine must die!” It howled.

Suddenly a stream of light pierced the creatures head. It screamed in discomfort as Eldon aimed his sword at the creature. Walking slowly up to him he began to smile.

“Well, what an unfortunate turn of events?” Eldon smirked.

Ziron had finally gathered the energy and flew above the creature. Aiming true to the ground he blasted out white lightening into the creature. Black smoke consumed the swampy marsh they were familiar with. Collapsing to the ground, the light around Ziron dissipated. He looked around at the others. Aegis was shedding his armor and Eldon had sheathed his sword.

“Great job, thank you guys for your help!” Aegis said worried.

“What were you thinking?” Eldon said as he cuffed the mans ear.

“Hey old man, be nice to me, I was hired to kill what I thought was just a horseman! Turns out it was a Death Rider, my bad?” Aegis said stressfully brushing aside his brown hair.

“Well I’m glad we were here, that this is massively powerful!” Ziron said feeling the fatigue eating away at his body.

“I’m guessing we all need a good rest?” Eldon said noticing his sleepiness as well.

“There is a cave up here a few miles we can camp there, its safe, warm, and most of all dry!” Aegis said as he walked towards a mountain that had seemingly sprang from nowhere.

Trudging through the watery hell they finally reached the mountain line and pushed inside the thick pine trees. The smell of pine filled their nostrils as they pressed forward. The cave suddenly came into view as they all quickly went inside. Aegis summoned a free floating fire to warm them up.

“Well this is much better!” Aegis smiled.

“Let me dry you guys,” Ziron smiled as wind slipped inside and whisked away the moisture.

“Thank you Ziron, so sorry, we never really were properly introduced!” Eldon laughed.

“My name is Aegis I am a Navigational, south particularly!” Aegis smiled.

“I am Ziron, I am a Demon and of course your already know this old fool!” Ziron laughed. Eldon cuffed his ear in humor.

“So Aegis? What is going on where is your partner?” Eldon asked worry laced in his voice.

Aegis held his head low and looked up like a bad puppy.

“We got into a little bit of a disagreement, and decided it would be best for the both of us to separate for awhile. Sadly lost touch with him a bit ago. I still hope he is okay,” Aegis said looking around in embarrassment.

“Sorry to hear that old friend, I’m sure you will either find a new one or rekindle the old!” Eldon said as he furnished a flask from his robes.

“To old and new friendships!” They yelled.

2017, Fables of Destiny

Ambush

Arcane, Prometheus, and Ophelia materialized on Pluto. Creatures began to surround them! They saw them coming. Little robots buzzed around like a swarm of bees. The other creatures stood taller than normal with long swanky arms holding pistols in each. Behind them was a large massive beast growling in anger. In the shadows were the glowing eyes that aimed right at them.

Hissing and slurring came from the void of Pluto as little robots flew towards them. Prometheus quickly summoned his Solar shield and defended his teammates as each one of them latched onto his shield and exploded. The shield fizzled from existence as creatures came forward blasting bullets at our heroes. Arcane skipped around avoiding each one as Prometheus took them each. Ophelia leapt into the air and blasted out a Void bomb blowing up the attacking creatures.

They each pulled forward and whipped out their weapons. Kinetic bullets filled the air peeling the attacking creatures. Arcane whipped out his Scout Rifle and headshot each of the glowing eyes. Prometheus continued forward attacking the creatures with his Auto Rifle. Ophelia landed in the masses and used her Hand Cannons on each one that came at her.

The Battalion had been defeated the large creature that was seemingly overseeing them came forward its howls of anger shook the planet.

“I am the mighty Reverie, your bodies will be slain here and peeled for study!” it howled.

Arcane leapt into the air and Arc Blades adorned his arms as he rushed the massive creature. Striking as hard and fast as he could before the lightning fizzled away. Leaping backwards avoiding Reverie’s stoke he escaped its onslaught.

The three guardians stood looking up at this massive beast before them. They unloaded clip after clip into its body waiting for it to finally fall. Dodging it’s strikes and blasts from the cannons it wielded. Struggling to defeat the massive creature they filled their Lights power. And all powered up at once. Prometheus pummeled the creature with its fists of Solar energy striking it hard and fast. Arcane had to wait a bit longer than the others. Watching Ophelia loading out Void Bomb after Void Bomb into it’s towering frames. Once Arcane was up he struck it again with his Arc Blades. The three Guardian’s onslaught was too much for the beast and it exploded into fragments. The fragments materialized into the Robots that begged to clasp onto their bodies. They were suddenly fleeing for their lives until the ship took it aboard.

They sat panting in the middle of their ships.

“We need to do a status report, they knew we were coming, and those robots are dangerous!” Arcane said through rushed breathing.

“Yes dock the Ghosts!” Ophelia seconded.

They each stood up and summoned their Ghosts for docking. Commander Mavericks worried expression filled the now light screen that had formed.

“Updates for me Guardians?” He said with extreme anxiety.

Arcane stepped forward as he was elected leader.

“We arrived here and were ambushed they were already expecting us.” Arcane said with worry as well.

“Did you get to scout anything?” Maverick asked.

“Sorry sir, we didn’t have a chance. They have robots that latch onto you and explode, we needed to get away. Not to mention they were joined with a massive beast I can only imagine is a commander of some kind. It was quite powerful, all three of our supers had a hard time taking it down. Not to mention the bullets we filled it with,” Arcane said upset.

“If that is any indication of the chaos that dwells on Pluto we need to make sure you are prepared, we need to power you up!” Maverick said.

“The Speaker granted our Ghosts the “forever” light, but we don’t know how to wield it?” Ophelia said worry also filling her out.

“Don’t worry Guardians, the answers will come to you when it is most needed!” The Speaker’s soft voice rang in their ears.

“Thank you Speaker,” Maverick said with a smile.

“So we will room here and heal up, it’s been a tough battle for something so new to us! We look forward to accessing the “forever light”!” Arcane smiled to the group.

2017, Fables of Destiny

Bonding

Arcane, Prometheus, and Ophelia had been transported back to their home bases at the tower. They received word that the Speaker must talk to them. They each popped by the vaults and emptied it of their Armor, Weapons, and Support Inventory. They gathered all of themselves together and traveled to the Speaker.

He sat high on his staircase looking down at them as he walked down each step. His face covered by a mask and his voice a soft caress of the Traveler’s Light.

“As you know, I am the voice for the Traveler when it has been choked. It knows all and sees all and it is very much aware of your situation here. May you please furnish your Ghosts before me?” The Speaker said arms wide.

They each quickly summoned their Ghosts and sat them free amongst the observatory. Suddenly the room went completely dark and flashed with bright white light. Each of the Ghosts was suddenly filled with light. Their armor mutated into a white shell with blue “T” markings. They hummed and beeped with joy as the Traveler granted them a gift.

“They will burn brighter, stay lit longer, and survive easier. The Traveler has granted them the gift of it’s Forever Lights, I am sure your travels will set the powers they have been granted! The Traveler and I wish you luck on your mission. Keep your light safe, Guardian!” The Speaker said, ascending the stairs.

“Well, as a new Fire-Team before we are summoned I feel we need to get to know each other a little better, therefore I propose a Patrol together!” Arcane said confidently.

“That sounds like a fantastic idea, we have no idea what we are getting into, we need to evaluate what we have together,” Ophelia said with a little smile.

“Sure, I like to shoot things,” Prometheus said as they each transmuted into light.

Their ships gathered above the solar system they each set a destination for the Cosmodrone. Flying in light speed.

“What do you think I can do?” Arcane’s Ghost beeped telepathically.

“I don’t know but I am sure it will help us on this mission!” Arcane said, slightly worried about knowing nothing about this new Pluto.

Arcane was the planner, a strategist, always read up and prepared for whatever was to come. They couldn’t expect some things of course in their mission but mostly Arcane had been ready for anything. Now, he was going into uncharted territory, not even rumors at the tavern to shed some light on the possibilities. Going in blind was not a good tactic to Arcane.

Ophelia heard her Ghosts beeping joy and was thinking to herself. She knew nothing about those that were coming with her. She didn’t like not knowing her teammates and struggled with not getting a heads up to this mission so she could do some research. But she knew one thing, battle brought out a lot in people and while she watched them battle she might be able to understand what they are all about.

Prometheus was the legendary Titan. He had vanquished many Minions of Darkness in his day, topped many hitlists, go to for strike support, and basically a master of both Defender and Striker, and knew how to use them in many dire situations. However, being so popular he was basically idolized by other Guardians and therefore a little hot-headed, but a positive member to the Fire-Team.

Suddenly each of them were materialized on the Cosmodrone fields where each of them looked around and sought out patrols. Not very long before they got to one trio of Taken Lieutenants came to corrupt the lands. They leaped into battle.

Arcane blasted white Arc Light into the sky as he dashed towards them, Arc Blades adorned his arms. Teleporting from foe to foe lashing out with the blades as they dissipated into thin air. Arcane sent waves of Arc Light into the Lieutenant until it crowed for mercy and burst into black flames. The light evaporated from his body as he filled the Fallen with Kinetic bullets to each of their heads with his Scout Rifle.

Prometheus launched into the sky and came rushing down a Flaming Hammer and crashed it onto the ground, fire exploded in all directions vaporizing the Fallen. He ran forward followed by Solar Light and smashed his hammer into the Lieutenant bursting it into fire as it was engulfed in black flames. The Solar glow was gone as Prometheus whipped out his Auto Rifle and peeled the incoming Fallen.

Ophelia sat back and prepared her attack for the final Lieutenant she leapt into the sky and blasted Void Bombs that sought out the Taken foes consuming them in it’s purple vengeance. She summoned Void energy into her palm and blasted it at the Taken Lieutenant, it went straight through his chest and he bursted into black fire. She crashed to the ground whipped out her two Hand Cannons and filled the Fallen surrounding her with Kinetic blasts of death.

The fields before them had been cleansed of the Minions of Darkness. Bodies scattered around the field plastered in deep red and black blood. They looked around at the chaos they had assumed as their Ghosts all hummed to life.

“We will let the Tower know what you did here!” They beeped simultaneously as they were issued their bonus Glitter, Loot Winnings, and Reputation points.

“To the tavern?” Prometheus laughed as everyone nodded and dissipated into light.
