Dawn of the End part 2

He who holds the Spear of Destiny holds the fate of the World. The Spear of Destiny has been missing for years coming in going in various moments of history. Last time it was used was in World War II by Adolf Hitler in an effort to rise to power.

An Unknown Figure, draped in white with a Hood to match and hide his face, marches with what seems like to be an endless army; to the Catacombs of New Babylon. It is unknown what he wants, but whatever it is he is willing to kill for it. Brand X, Athame’, Zero, Jack Nightmare, Ivory and LD all stand in front of the only entrance to the Catacombs, giving the survivors of the city (approximately 600 people from the last existence of the human race) a chance to retreat through the opposite exit (located on the other side of the cave) to the vast amount of ships docked on the other side. The rumbling of the stone warrior army, of the Chang Dynasty grows louder and stronger as the figure and white gets closer.

Brandi: WE CAN’T LET THEM GET INSIDE!!

Zero: NO SHIT!!

Athame’: WHY NOT?!

Nightmare: YEA WHAT’S THE DEAL? I MEAN ALL WE DO IS STALL THEM SO THE PEOPLE CAN GET OUT RIGHT?!

Ivory: IT’S MORE TO IT THAN THAT ISN’T?!

Everyone looks at Brandis.

Brandis: I’LL EXPLAIN LATER!!

Brandis runs toward top speed the army to begin his assault. Athame’ uses the wind element to hover her self into the air and charge toward the army as Nightmare uses his MDM to hulk out and begin his assault. LD pulls out his sword as he makes his way toward the army and Zero activates his new arm ready to blast away.

Still running in motion toward the army.

Brandis: JACK! HOW BOUT A BOOST?

Nightmare: YOU GOT IT!

In a second Nightmare place his hands down to the ground as Brandis runs up to it, steps on it and Nightmare launches his into the air like a catapult. Brandis flies up, out, and lands perfectly in a quad of warriors and begins fighting hard- flipping, kicking, dodging, punching, maneuvering moves against the warriors- turning their weapons and attacks on them.

LD moments later runs up the back of Nightmare and leaps off his shoulders toward the warriors, lands and begins fighting, maneuvering, and cutting use his various sword skills. (He moves like Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 7 and a Jedi from Star Wars).

Nightmare: HEY! WATCH IT NEW GUY!!!

Nightmare is hit by a spear from a warrior and soon ambushed by a Quadra of warriors but he fights them off as if they are nothing rendering some warriors to rubble, but they continue to come. Nightmare also uses his MDM to pass through warriors turning there attack on him to each other.

Zero Blasts his way through some warriors but soon finds him surrounded. So he forms his Vibro blade to fight the warriors off using melee attacks. (In combat with his Vibro Blade Zero moves like a skilled medieval Knight swinging a broad sword)

With no water around Ivory is not able to call upon her creatures from the Sea, so she is forced to use her Super strength against the army; her scaled skin acts as a defense against the warrior’s blades. She fights almost like a wrestler, picking up warriors and throwing them, pinning and breaking limbs.

Athame’ uses her sorcery powers of the element earth to use the ground beneath the warriors and turn it against them. She opens the ground swallowing them or brings the earth out of the ground to shatter the warriors with force.

The whole time the warriors make no sound. Not even a mutter of pain; since they are made of stone as they are getting crushed and turn to rubble. But still the fighting continues as the large and endless army makes its way to the catacombs. With their hands swamped in battle, everyone has taken there eye off the man in white who gets closer to the entrance.

Just inches away from the entrance, Brandis notices the hooded man in white is not in sight, and soon quickly glances over to see him a few feet away from the entrance from the entrance. Brandis then begins to fight his was through, but struggles slightly because of the vast attacks from the stone warriors.

Brandis: SOMEONE STOP HIM!!!

Every one looks but no one can fight there way fast enough to get to the hooded man in white. Zero soon maneuvers a few warriors out the using his arm blaster clearing a path for a clear shot. He aims steadily then fires. The shot looks to as it will hit its target but instead hits one of the stone warriors. The hooded figure in white looks back as the dust and debris settles, and all that can be seen by Zero is a crooked smile before Zero is ambushed by the warriors again.

Suddenly within inches of the entrance the figure is thrusted away from entrance by an unknown force. As he shakes off the mere attack he looks up and sees Athame’ hovering down to the ground using the element of wind.

Stranger in White: Ah… so you’re one of them…

Looking confused but still standing her ground Athame’ prepares for a counter attack.

Politely.

Stranger in White: Allow me passage miss…

With glowing eyes (like storm from x men.).

Athame’: I can’t do that…

Still fighting Brandis sees Athame’ in confrontation with the hooded man. The others continue to fight there way to the entrance to help her as Brandis does the same.

Stranger in White: Then if you don’t move… I’m going to have to move you myself…

Saying as he puts his right hand out and materializes a sword out of thin air.

Bravely.

Athame’: Then you’re just going to have to move me…

Athame’ begins to hover again (using the wind element) as the hooded man brings his sword up and down for an attack. But the attack is stopped by LD- with his own sword.

LD: No more blood should be spilled here today!!! It’s enough!!

A skilled and fast sword battle begins between the two. Clashing and sparking, the two meet and counter each other blow for blow. (The figure in white moves like LD does with a sword)

LD: Athame’ go help the others!!

LD continues to fight sword to sword with the figure in white. He even manages to get a hit across the arm of his opponent.

Both out of breath the stop briefly.

Stranger in white: Good… Very good… you are indeed skilled. A well trained swordsman… you should join me in my mission…

LD: Saving people is one thing… but killing them… that’s no mission.

Stranger in White: Some time to save someone you have to create a little destruction… but So be it.

The cut on the arm the figure heals instantly LD notices and the two go back to clashing swords for a bit longer while the others fight the stone warriors. The hooded man soon renders LD defenseless, with the tip of his sword at LD’s throat.

Stranger in White: The day of reckoning has befallen the world… for it to heal… we must start over a new… if you are not with me... then you are against me…

LD: This isn’t the way…

Stranger in White: It’s the only way…

The stranger begins to lunge his sword to finish LD but is blasted away by Zero.

Zero: I never miss twice…

Debris settles and the figure in white stand up with not only a hole in his stomach and a piece of his arm missing but his hood has been removed- showing a blond haired and blue eye man with blond facial hair- he is cut up in the face from meeting the ground hard when Zero blasts him. Within second the wounds heal right in front of Zero’s eyes.

Zero: What the F…?!

Stranger in White: Vengele’!!!

The Stranger stops Zero from taking another shot by putting him in a stasis field (a magical spell that keep Zero from moving at all).

Stranger in White: FOOLS! Why can’t you see… this is for the better good… I’m trying to save you… save us all!

The begin charging their way to the stranger to help LD and Zero, seeing this the stranger smiles at Zero and lunges him toward the others running to stop him-stopping them instantly- they help Zero and the figure in white makes his way into the catacombs.

Everyone stops briefly.

Brandis: Gotta stop him!!!

Athame’: Brandis wait we will help you!!

Brandis: Take care of your friend and Zero!!!

Brandis says as he runs after the Stranger in White.

Ivory: Nightmare go after him, hurry!!

Nightmare: I’ll follow him!!

While Ivory and Athame’ help LD and Zero fend off the stone soldiers, Nightmare follows behind Brandis. When in the catacombs Brandis begins leaping and jumping across the rock formations after the Stranger in white who is moving as Brandis does. Both are heading to the bottom deep of the catacombs.

Nightmare: Whoa… alright... if I phase through the wall I should be able to keep up slightly.

Nightmare uses his MDM and begins to phase through the walls running top speed after Brandis and the Stranger in White. As he is doing so he is screaming for Brandis to slow down for he is a mile apart, and at the same time seeing various ruins of a temple with the same Aramaic markings as he saw earlier that Brandis touched. Brandis and the stranger in white have gone further ahead with Nightmare over a mile behind.

The two meet in an alter area like room and begin to fight. Brandis is defenseless and can only dodge and maneuver his way around the Stranger in white’s blade. He does manage to punch and kick him a few times but it’s not enough, the stranger continues to pursue Brandis with the sword. Nightmare soon catches up, uses MDM to hulk out and jumps toward the stranger in white.

Nightmare: Brandis!!

The distraction causes Brandis to temporarily lose concentration and he is stabbed through the shoulder blade and jammed up against a wall. The stranger in white uses the stasis field spell on Nightmare to stop him in mid hair. Leaving Brandis pinned up against the wall with the sword still in him and Nightmare trapped in mid air stasis, the stranger in white moves to the center of the alter room. He then begins to push various hidden locks around the alter.

Stranger in white: In the beginning man was to be the perfect image of god… worthy of his love… to make time move forward and evil to stand still… now that is all changed… the world… existence it self is broken…

The alter opens in a white light comes from it. When it settles a large feather (like in Brandis vision) lies within it. The stranger in white picks the feather. He then pulls a small case from his pocket and it grows bigger in size. He then kneels down and places the feather inside the case with the spear (same spear he used to uncover the hidden temple earlier in the story). The case shrinks down to size it was and he puts it away on a utility harness on his built.

Stranger in white: … and it’s my destiny to fix it…

He then lets Nightmare go who continues his assault but the figure vanishes into thin air.

Nightmare: Whoa… where did..?

Brandis weekly.

Brandis: Jack…

Nightmare: Oh man… on three alright?

Brandis: Just take it out Jack…

Nightmare grabs the sword and pulls it out fast as he can, the sword then dematerializes. He then picks the weak Brandis up and takes him outside to the others. When they arrive outside the stone army is gone.

Athame’: Oh no!!

The others run up to Nightmare and Brandis. Nightmare lays Brandis down as Athame’ looks at the condition of his wound.

Nightmare: What happen?

LD: We don’t know, went quiet about 15 minutes ago… the army just vanished… into thin air… so I guess he got what he wanted I take it… in the catacombs?

Nightmare nods.

Zero: Fuck…

Nightmare: Did the people get away?

LD: Yea they did... all ships are casted off… no bodies on the other side…

Nightmare: So we did what we needed to, that’s good right?

Zero: Yea… job well done… but something doesn’t feel right…

Ivory: What do you mean?

Zero: Like how the hell was he able to heal like that? I shot him and took a good chunk of him…

Nightmare: Well maybe he is an evolved human…

LD looks away from the others toward the ocean but listening to the others.

Zero: Then how the fuck do you explain the magic use? What the fuck was here that he was willing to kill for?

Athame’: Wait he used magic?!

Zero: Yea he did, something that like was like warm but I was frozen like ice…

Athame’ bandages the wound of Brandis so it heals faster. Brandis is slightly unconscious.

Athame’: What kinda magic?

Nightmare: It was a spell he did it to me to in the catacomb ruins… also dematerializes a sword in thin air…

Zero: Ruins?

Nightmare: Yea, there is like a huge temple down there in the catacombs… didn’t know that?

Zero: No… my people never went further underground than we needed to due to the past volcanic eruptions from the past… heat was too much…

Nightmare: Well the ruins has those same markings on it we saw earlier… but that’s not what’s bothering me…

Athame’: Then what is?

Nightmare: He had one micro case… that’s hidden-Atlantis technology… not available to the outside world…

Athame’: How do you suppose…?

LD: What was in the ruins?

Confusion clears.

Nightmare: Um… some sort of feather like thing…didn’t really get a good look… was kinda frozen…

Zero: None of this makes sense… too many question and no answers…

Nightmare: Could head home… talk to the head master… he might know… do some research my self maybe, you know? Then I can fix the ship…

Brandis Awakens.

Brandis: Why don’t we ask Mr. Silent…

Athame’: Are you ok?

Brandis: Yes… thank you… feeling good… just little dizzy…

Ivory: Mr. Silent? You mean…

Ivory looks at LD (Ivory communicates with all through telepathy- she can’t talk).

Brandis begins to talk toward LD

Brandis: Yea… tell me LD… how was it that you didn’t want me to touch the ruin walls writing.

LD: Didn’t say anything… demon.

Brandis: So you didn’t try to stop me…?

LD: Tried to stop you from startling a cave in or whatever… I don’t know what you demonic power is…

Zero: You’re lying…

Athame’: How do you know?

Zero: Don’t need a special Eye to know he is lying… his voice and body posture saying it all…

Zero begins to get up set and soon LD finds himself surround by everyone in question.

Zero: Out with it…

Brandis: See when I touched that wall I saw a vision… and one of the places in that vision was what is now the ruins of that temple…

Zero: What else did you see?

Brandis: I’m not sure what else… it’s all kinda jumbled… a war… a sword… feather that was in the temple… but the ruins… those warriors… that guy in white… the writing on the walls is all tied into each other some how… I know it for sure and I think you LD know something…

Athame’: LD if you know anything you should tell us…

LD still distant but also slightly nervous is still not talking.

Ivory: Talk…

LD: Out of my head demon!!

Ivory gets upset. Punches LD across the face- making him fall to the ground and jumps on top of him. He is not able to grab his sword fast enough before hand because of his injuries during battle.

Ivory: Listen I’m not a demon… get it through your head… or I will rip your head off!!

Brandis: Ivory!! Enough!!

Brandis pulls Ivory off LD. LD lays on the ground and Zero steps over him.

Zero: Do you know how the human race lost the city of Genesis LD?

LD: No… but I heard it was burned to the ground only about half the people got out…

Zero: Well Genesis was the first city built and reformed after reality fell apart… the founder kept a secret… that he had been having headaches for weeks. Soon those head aches turned into what was then found out to be an evolved power brewing in him- which gave him the ability to read and manipulate the minds of any being. We had hoped to used the power to gain knowledge of the outside and demonic world to benefit the human races rise to power… but instead he used the power and kept the secret of himself working with demons… he kept it a secret for 4 years gaining power in the underworld… was not long ‘til we were fighting for our lives and our city in flames... thousands were slaughtered… women… children…

LD: What’s the point of this story…

With a dead look in his eyes.

Zero: The point is… secrets kill LD… and if you don’t start talking… I know a 101 ways to make you talk…

Everyone had never seen Zero act so brutal and evil. Was almost like he was inhuman. It sent chills down their spines.

LD stands up and everyone stands in front of him.

LD: I heard a legend… several millenniums ago there was a war in heaven. Angels against angels… one of god’s angels formed a rebellion against his creator and a huge battle ensued. During the battle the left hand of god- Gabriel- sword was lost in the battle and he forged a new to finish the battle. The original sword was lost on earth some time ago… same battle the arch angel Michael supposedly lost a wing... supposedly when angels lose there wings the wings decinergrate or something but one of the feathers of Michael fell to earth as well. The rebel angels were later casted into hell with the demons… the relics of the angels were lost to time… never to be seen ‘til now.

Brandis: Where’s the sword?

LD: I honestly do not know…

Athame’: The headmaster might know that answer…

Ivory: How do you figure?

Athame’: Well he is very ancient… not too many things he would not know. Might be worth a shot.

Zero: And if not can do a little research… maybe someone found it and it left a trail.

Brandis: So we will head back to the city then…

Nightmare: …But he had two relics in the case… and one was not a sword… it was an arrow head or something.

LD grows nervous.

LD: Was it bronze? Like metal? Old with stains on it?

Nightmare: I don’t know… I guess… couldn’t really see it I was frozen.

Brandis: I saw it too… briefly but I saw it… it was metal looking and old…

LD: No…

Zero: What?

LD: The two relics from the legend have a sub myth you can say to it. Anyone familiar with the spear of destiny?

Zero: Yea… that’s the spear that supposedly killed Christ or something… right?

Brandis: Wow… didn’t think you read?

Zero gives Brandis a dirty look.

LD: It does that… and more supposedly… the Spear of destiny grants power. Can alter fate… control and inspire armies… and even resurrect the dead…

Zero: Come on it’s just a spear… that’s impossible.

LD: Really? Last time it was used was in World War II by a German dictator… remember him?

Zero: Who doesn’t every human alive does…

LD: Well I think that is how he gained control of the Chang Dynasty army…

Athame’: So what happens if he gets the third relic…

Nightmare: He did say something about the world being broken… and fixing it…

Silence comes to everyone as they think what the man in white meant.

Ivory: He’s going to destroy the world… finish it off… finish dragging it to hell…

LD: Worse… He’s going to unmake existence all together…

Fear slides over every ones faces and a small panic ensues

Athame’: That can’t happen…

Nightmare: Yea we have to find that relic first…

Ivory: And stop this guy permanently… so he doesn’t go looking for it again…

Zero: But how do you stop someone who can heal from any wound…

Brandis: What?

Zero: Yea… he can’t be killed… I shot him, put a hole in his stomach big enough to kill Goliath..

Ivory: Cut off his head…

LD: I don’t think that would work…

Athame’: Why not LD?

Brandis: Yea who is this guy that can’t be killed? I mean if he heals and is human must be a evolved human…

LD: He’s not an evolved human… He can’t die… he won’t age…And any fate you bestow on him he can reverse… I have fought them before…

Brandis: What or who in this world can do that?

LD looks down then back up.

LD: Only one being can… A Saint.
