1. Survival's Guilt

 Returning to the Gold Hotel after their gruesome ordeal at the Elestial Market. Once Othello sees everyone inside of their hotel room. Othello immediately closes her portal. Hoping she closed it before the police arrived to confront Natsumi and Miracle. Tobirama carrying the still unconscious Okubi in his arms. Along with Eligos and Angelina. Tobirama rushes Okubi towards the maroon colored couch. After taking a few minutes to calm herself. Xiaoyu starts going around the room. Healing anyone who shown to have injuries or physical fatigue. Lisa, Brutality, Futanari, Lava Rose, Tre', and Zira sitting together on the larger maroon couch. All wearing defeated looks on their faces. Anna approaches her father James sitting on a wicker chair. Sits on his lap and lays her head on his chest. Seeing the tears forming around his daughter's eyes. James wraps his arms around his daughter's upper body. In order to muffle the sounds of her inevitable tears. Nara and Apollyn sitting on the king size bed. Tears also rolling down their eyes. Hellin entirely disgusted by the current atmosphere. Along with dealing with her own personal anger. Decides to steps outside into the balcony. Surprise by how depressed everyone is behaving. Othello begins to speak hoping to cheer her comrades up

Othello: Everyone, everyone! What's with the long faces? We were the ones victorious in tonight's hellish events. Yes that sonabitch Ulric gotten away and Pruflas's men are going to come after us. Along with the fact we still need to deal with Iron Zabel. However we successfully decimated majority of the assassins of The Order. James technically no longer has a hit placed out on him. Since after tonight Ulric will be the only surviving member of The Order. Because once I'm done dealing with you sobbing bitches. Both Hellin and I are going to the Underworld. Alerting my fellow Demon Lords and the Underworld Council about Ulric's betrayal. Which will lead to the execution of all remaining members of The Order. So let's turn those frowns upside down. Let us instead celebrate tonights victory

Lisa: Are you fucking kidding me? Exactly what the fuck do we have to celebrate?

Zira: Lisa is absolutely fucking right! Yes we managed to best our enemies, but so many... so many innocent lives were lost tonight. All because the fact James and us were at the Elestial Market. Had we just stayed home or began hunting down Pruflas. The chances such events occurring would had been slim. 

Futanari: All those people who died for absolutely no reason. I never witness such a massacre in my entire life

Brutality: I done some really fucked up things in my past. However never in my life. Could I had imagined witnessing the evil that taken place tonight. I would rather had died than to see the corpse of innocents surrounding me. At least I would had deserved it! None of those good people attending the Elestial Market deserved what the assassins of The Order did to them

Tre': Everything about tonight was beyond fucked up! I cannot find it in me right now to celebrate anything. Yes we are alive, but at what fucking cost?

Lava Rose: I dealt with my share of madmen and discovered some awful shit. However I never imagine I just never thought I would witness such evil. So many dead bodies of good people. The pool of blood the surrounded the Elestial Market was absolutely horrifying. Makes me question if I chosen the right path in life

Zira: Despite the horrors we faced tonight. I still very much want to continue growing our Guild

Tre': I absolutely agree with Zira. I know tonight was a nightmare, but I still very much wish to stay with Zira and you boss

Lava Rose: Yeah I do too Tre'

Othello: OMG! What a bunch of pussies. People die everyday in this bitch! Casualties is just a part of life. Can't breakdown every time an innocent person or people lives are claimed. Whenever a group of evil bastards unleash their fury. Otherwise you will fucking cry yourself to a grave

Lisa: That must be really easy for you to say. Considering the evil shit you do back in your home realm. Despite the fact I have a mouth of a sailor. Being literally an angel from Heaven. Every time I witness an innocent person losing their life. It hurts me in ways no one could ever imagine. People aren't just canon fodder for evil. Good souls should never have to witness such despair inducing deaths. Those people attending the Elestial Market had plans for tomorrow. Friends and family who will forever mourn their untimely passing. I only wished I was strong enough to prevent such a tragedy

Othello: Well maybe you can your God to bring them back to life? Such a feat shouldn't be too hard for a man possessing such divine power. Unless of course Asira enjoys watching the mortal being on the planet he created die for his amusement


 Lisa leaps off of the bed and starts to approach Othello! Xiaoyu immediately possessions herself in front of Othello. Stopping Lisa from putting hands on her. Lisa further anger by Xiaoyu standing in her way. Lisa demands Xiaoyu to move out of her fucking way. Othello watches in an amusement as Xiaoyu remains in front of Lisa

Lisa: Xiaoyu please tell me you're under Othello's telepathic control. Otherwise I will punch your fucking lights out!

Xiaoyu: Obviously I'm not under Othello's telepathic control Lisa. I just don't want you to do something foolish

Lisa: I'm an angel for fuck sakes Xiaoyu. I can handle that heartless ass jezebel

Xiaoyu: NO! I'm not going to allow us to fight one another

Lisa: Since when did that slut become your friend?

Xiaoyu: Othello is no fucking friend of mine, but she is our comrade rather you like it or not. Therefore I will not allow you to fight her. Save your anger for our real enemies. Now please go and have a seat back on the bed

 Lisa shoots Xiaoyu and Othello dirty looks. Before turning away walking back to the bed

Nara: Well thank goodness you defused that situation baby

Othello: Indeed! Despite the bubbly attitude I'm displaying. I'm very much in a violent mood. 

Angelina: Can all of you put your to the fucking side? Our leader is laying on the bed still unconscious from his encounter with Poisonous One

Othello: Oh my I almost forgot about little Okubi. I'm surprised he hasn't recovered from whatever condition Poisonous One placed on him

Eligos: Master Okubi has fully recovered from the toxins in the bite of Poisonous One's zombie. It something else that preventing Master Okubi from awakening at this moment and I'm honestly terrified

Tobirama: Perhaps it is the trauma from being around the chaos within the Elestial Market. I believe such a nightmarish event had more an effect on Okubi's psyche than he realized

Eligos: Oh no! It's definitely the trauma from the Elestial Market that affecting Master Okubi. Even though Master Okubi kept on a very brave face. The moment everything went to hell within the street fair. I felt a surge of terror run through Okubi's body. I bet it's the same terror Okubi had felt over two hundred and fifty years ago. The very day his mother became possessed an went on a rampage in China. 

Zira: So that must mean Okubi's mental trauma is what's keeping him from awakening?

Othello: Well if that's the case. Perhaps I can be a "saint" and look into Okubi's mind. Seeing if what you jackassess are saying holds any merit

 Othello walks over to the small maroon couch where Okubi lays. Placing both her hands around Okubi's head. Othello activates her telepathic powers and enters inside of Okubi's mind. Inside of Okubi's mind, Othello finds herself in a place that mimics the Elestial Market. The sky is a blackish red color, destroyed buildings, dead bodies, and blood completely covering the ground. However among the dead bodies Othello sees corpses resembling all of the heroes including herself. Turning her head away from the unsightly view. Othello then spots Okubi sitting on the ground with his hands between his legs. Staring at the corpses of his friends. Realizing what Poisonous One has done to Okubi's psyche. Othello lets out a tiny condescending laugh. Then walks her way over to the petrified Okubi. Standing over Okubi, Othello places a hand on top of his head. Feeling Othello's hand on top of his head. Okubi looks up and sees Othello looking down at him

Othello: See Okubi none of this is real? Poisonous One just used a trick to trap you in your greatest fear. A massacre did take place at the Elestial Market tonight, but all of your friends are alive. Including Hellin and myself. Now shake this shit off and get back to reality

Okubi: My friends are alive?

Othello: Yes you pitiful faggot and how dare you imagine my daughter and I dead?

Okubi: So I didn't kill you guys?

Othello: What? Exactly do you mean by that?

 Okubi doesn't say a word to Othello. Instead he points towards the direction of corpses. Standing over the corpses appears a much sinister Okubi. Covered in the blood of his friends. The evil Okubi stares in the direction of regular Okubi and Othello. Staring into the eyes of the evil Okubi. Othello feels a terror through her body she's never imagine. Turning her attention back tot he regular Okubi. Othello says to him "the effects of the Dark Dream Trial is starting to take an effect on you". Regular Okubi simply nods his head. Othello then lowers herself down to the ground next to Okubi. Othello then forcefully brings Okubi's head to her bosom. While Okubi's head rests upon her breast. Othello says to him "Do not fucking allow your fears to slow you down. Regardless of your fate Okubi. Now isn't the time to doubt yourself or fear what you may become. Despite the fact I don't fucking like you. I understand your importance to saving both our worlds. So please put aside any doubts that hinders you. Continue to fight until the darkness within you devours you. In the meantime fight to keep hope alive within yourself. If you truly are the man I think you to be. The darkness that threatens your soul will not overtake you. Now I shall exit myself out of your mind. Allowing you to rest your psyche". Othello then releases Okubi from her grasp. Getting off of the ground and back to her feet. Before Othello exits Okubi's mind. Okubi stops Othello in order to thank her. Along with a question he needs to ask her

Okubi: Othello before you go. I first would like to say thank you. Despite the fact we do not like one another. I appreciate you helping me through my mental trauma. 

Othello: I didn't do it for you asshole! I did it to make sure you won't become a liability in taking down The Children of Ruin

Okubi: Well before you go. I have a question I need to ask you

Othello: Hurry up please! I don't want to stay in this hellhole you call your mind any longer

Okubi: Have you ever heard of being known as Beyonders?

 Immediately upon hearing Okubi's question. Othello's face draws the expression of utter shock. Fighting to gain her composure. Enough to at least give Okubi a response. Othello stares directly in his eyes and says to him "I do indeed, but the fact you actually encounter one is truly troubling. Both you and I have a lot to discuss. However I must go take care of business within the Underworld. Once I have done just that. I will return back to Neo Aigosthena and you and I will have a serious talk. That includes my dealings with Ariana. Now I will leave you to deal with your inner demons"

 Othello with her arms folded. Fades out from Okubi's sight as her conscious leaves his mind. Once Othello's mind returns to her body. Opening her eyes and removing her hands from Okubi's head. Othello sees everyone minus Hellin looking at her. Wanting to know what she saw in Okubi's mind

Eligos: So what's happening inside of my Master's head?

Xiaoyu: Is Okubi going to be okay?

Othello: Okubi is fucking fine. Whatever Poisonous One did to Okubi. Not only physically harmed him, but psychologically as well. Thankfully I was able to resolve the psychological damage done to him. Okubi just needs to rest up a bit. He'll be awake real soon

Lisa: Funny you're saying he's fine. Considering while your mind was connected with his. The expressions on your face were riddled with terror. 

Othello: Okubi is fine you annoying glorified fairy cunt! The man's mind isn't exactly a homely place. Your precious leader will be alright. Just let him rest up for fuck sakes.

James: I'm pretty sure Okubi is very exhausted. Out of all of us here. Okubi did combat most of the Elite members of The Order by himself. Even with his high power level. Okubi isn't immune to exhaustion. Combined with whatever dirty trick Poisonous One did on him. Okubi just needs some time to relax

Angelina: I'm relieved to know that's all he requires. I feared something else was the cause of Okubi's current state, but exhaustion sounds very plausible

Othello: Well now if you fuckers excuse me. I'm going to get my daughter and prepare for our trip back to the Underworld

James: Do you want Anna and I to accompany you two?

Othello: Much appreciate Del Soto, but knowing what Hellin and I are about to do. I rather your daughter and you not be in the way

Brutality: Well since there's nothing that needs to be discussed. I don't know about you guys but I could use something to eat

Lava Rose: I built up quite and appetite while fighting for my survival. I'm pretty certain my comrades feel the same way

Tre': Yeah I'm staved!

Angelina: So let's go downstair and go get something to eat everyone. We'll let Okubi rest while the rest of us grabs something to eat. One of the many things we weren't able to do at the Elestial Market street fair

Nara: Yeah I can go for some food. Well after I'm done talking to Xiaoyu inside of the bathroom

Apollyn: What does Xiaoyu and Nara buddy want to talk about in the bathroom? Apollyn wants to know

Brutality: Certain conversations are rather private Lynn. Especially when it's not exactly talking they plan on doing. Now let's head downstair everyone and give the lovers their space and Okubi some rest. Tobirma that includes you. Okubi isn't going to wake up faster with you by his side. It's just unfortunate with Okubi unconscious. Eligos isn't able to come with us

Eligos: That won't be necessary anyways. Even without being able to leave Okubi's side. I can just disappear until Okubi calls for me

Futanari: Well I guess all that's left to do is go and eat. Afterwards I think we should all get some sleep. Tomorrow we need to find Pruflas and his minions and take them down!

 Everyone excepts Nara and Xiaoyu exits the room. Eligos disappears from view as Nara and Xiaoyu enter the bathroom. Okubi rests on the small maroon couch. Moving his fingers and toes in his sleep. Othello outsides of the balcony with Hellin. Prepares for their trip back to the Underworld

2. Doppelganger

 Poisonous One carrying Okubi in his arms. Exits through his portal, entering inside of his Master's domain. Despite the sudden darkness that blinded him. Shortly after one of his zombies had bitten Okubi. Fortunately after the intense darkness had faded. Okubi was still appeared under the hallucination of his zombie's bite. Celia who was still battling against Angelina and Nara. Poisonous One had no intentions of aiding her. Now with Okubi in his possession. Poisonous One did not care if Celia would survive or not. Neither did his Master, Lord Pruflas for that matter. Unknown to Celia when Pruflas recruited her. Unlike the rest of his loyal minions. Pruflas did not care if Celia survived her encounter with the heroes or not. Celia was simply an assassins who possessed magical and combat skills Pruflas could used to his advantage. Course Poisonous One and the other members of Pruflas's Elite Servants. All of them were order to pretend to view Celia as one of there own. However not that Celia has served her purpose. Poisonous One gladly left Celia to her fate.

 Returning to his Master's secret domain.  Poisonous One is greeted by his comrades Natan, Lita, Stanford, Karen, and Satomi. Poisonous One also notices a handcuffed Ulric amongst their company. Asleep on the ground between Lita and Natan. Seconds before Poisonous One could even ask the question. Pruflas makes his presence known to his servants. Exiting out of his room with two gorgeous succubus on each side. Concealing his lower body with a blue silver towel. Pruflas greets his Elite Servants in the Great Hall. Immediately noticing all of his servants minus Celia. Which brings great joy to Pruflas. Spotting Okubi in the arms of Poisonous One. Pruflas walks over to him. Taking Okubi out of Poisonous One's arm into his. Holding his step son for the very first time. Pruflas stares down at the unconscious Okubi with a cocky smile. Thrilled to finally have Okubi in his possession after so many years. Pruflas then turns his attention back to his servants. Addressing each one of them for a job well done

Pruflas: Congratulations for accomplishing your task my servants. I'm beyond thrilled that you all returned here alive and unharmed. Along with having successfully captured both Okubi and Ulric

Lita: If I can be honest with you Master. I don't believe any of us were as successful as you had hoped. While Natan and I did successfully captured Ulric. Had Natan and I stayed to combat the heroes. I feared neither of us would had been so lucky. Which is why I ordered Natan to retreat along with me. Once we had Ulric in our possession.

Natan: If you're mad boss that neither Lita or I managed to kill any of the heroes. Please feel free to take your frustrations out on me

Pruflas: Nonsense Natan! Both Lita and you did exactly what I wanted. Yes killing any of the heroes would had been a great joy, but that was simply a bonus to your main task. Capturing Lord Ulric, the leader of The Order. Killing any of the heroes would had been an icing on the cake. That goes for all of you as well

Satomi: So is Futanari still alive?

Karen: Yes yes indeed! I only used Lorenzo to keep her and the others busy. While I played with the detective. Testing her skills in order to prove herself worthy of entering my tournament

Stanford: Speaking about your underground tournament Karen. The last few days I traveled to various within Mayland. Capturing talented sages that may proved to be worthy fighters for your tournament. Just let me know when you're ready for me to send them down to you

Karen: Well thank you Stanford. I very very much appreciate it! Lord Pruflas originally wanted me to capture as many of the heroes as possible. Forcing them to combat each in my tournament. However the two of us then realized that would be rather stupid. They would just fight against me. Therefore Stanford using the sages you kidnapped. Would prove to work much better for my tournament. Along with Xiaoyu fighting in hopes of freeing Lorenzo from my control. This tournament may prove to be my best best tournament yet! Course I'm short a participant or two, but something tells me I need not to worry. Anyways I know you can't wait for your inevitable battle against the Shogun. HA HA HA HA HA!

Satomi: I been practicing how to use my blood magic more effectively. I cannot wait to use my magic to bring horror to Akuma's soul. Once I deal with her. I can return to Japan and continue my dominance over Japan's underworld society

Pruflas: Well that is the idea. Course I will continue to have you under my services. Don't forget you are now my property

Satomi: I have not forgotten Lord Pruflas

Natan: So Mohammad whatever happened to that bitch Rains?

Poisonous One: While I was battling against Okubi. Celia had summoned her dragon to deal with Okubi's friends. Unfortunately one of Okubi's friends. The demoness by the name Angelina. The same one Satomi had encountered last night. Also posses the ability to summon a dragon. The two women then took to the skies. Battling one another in a classic dragon versus dragon battle. Once I had managed to defeat Okubi in combat. I opened a portal to Lord Pruflas's domain. Carrying Okubi in my arms leaving Celia to her fate

Natan: HA HA HA HA HA! I hope that Angelina chick's dragon fried Celia's worthless ass!

Pruflas: I knew you wouldn't let me down Mohammad. Now it time we focus our attention for our ultimate prize. Okubi it's been a long time coming. Years since I had married your mother. I had waited for this very day. Where both you and I will meet each other face to face. However the conditions for the reasons we finally meet could had not been less favorable. The very thought of you and your friends coming to Neo Aigosthena. In order to kill me isn't pleasant either. Sadly with me being one of the founding members of The Children of Ruin. I understand why your friends and you want me dead. Unfortunately now that I have you in my possession. I we see to it that your ambition of killing me is never realized. Instead I will corrupt you and make you my second in command. Now all that's left to do is awaken you

 Pruflas preparing to wake Okubi out of his sleep. Okubi eyes open before Pruflas. Staring at his step father with a poisonous stare. Before Pruflas and the other servants could react to Okubi. The half demon had managed to sink his teeth into Prufla's chest. Instinctively Pruflas throws Okubi off of him. Unfortunately now with Okubi having tasted Pruflas's blood. No matter where Pruflas's creates his domain. Okubi will be able to tract him down. Natan, Poisonous One, and Lita starts moving towards Pruflas but he orders them to stay still. Looking down at Okubi with raged filled eyes. Pruflas places a hand around Okubi's neck. Lifting him into the air before him. Having expected Okubi to show some sought of reaction. Instead Okubi simply stares at him with a blank expression on his face. It was that very moment Pruflas realized something was off

Karen: Master Pruflas... are you you okay?

Pruflas: My injury has already healed Karen, but this is not Okubi!

Lita: Whatever do you mean Master?

Natan: What the fuck? That seriously isn't Okubi?

Stanford: This is certainly no illusion taking place before us. So exactly what's going here?

Poisonous One: Oh no!

Pruflas: This is not Okubi but a Shadow Clone of his. Mohammad how did this happen?

Poisonous One: This is what I get for ignoring that shit earlier. During my battle against Okubi. After one of my zombies managed to bite him. Okubi had fallen into a hallucination like state. Seconds before I went to retrieve him. A sudden burst of darkness had blinded me. Once the darkness had faded. Okubi still remained in his state of helplessness. Therefore I considered the sudden darkness merely a minor inconvenience. I knew for certain it couldn't had been caused by Okubi. Lord Pruflas I'm truly sorry for failing you

Pruflas: I'm highly pissed off Mohammad. Never did I expect failure from you. Did you not think to investigate the sudden burst of darkness? Someone must had witnessed your fight against Okubi. Waiting for the very moment you let your guard down. Used their magic to rescue Okubi before you could capture him... the real Okubi anyways.

Lita: Obviously that is the case, but even so Master. Whoever managed to rescue Okubi. How did they make Okubi summon a Shadow Clone of himself. Considering Okubi was in a state of hallucination?

Pruflas: The answer to that question is quite simple Lita. Whoever did rescue Okubi possessed the same magic as him. There is only one individual other than Okubi who knows the Magic Arts of Machosias. That man being no other than Okubi's sensei Takeda Tobirama!

Poisonous One: Sonabitch! I didn't even sense his presence while battling against Okubi

Pruflas: That's because Tobirama used Okubi's aura to hide his own. Since you were order not to inflict any fatal injuries against Okubi. Tobirama was able to hide his aura within Okubi's. Keeping himself from being found by either of you. Once Tobirama saw an opportunity to rescue Okubi. Tobirama used his magic to create the blinding darkness. Giving himself enough time to get to Okubi. Forced him to create a Shadow Clone of himself. Then hide Okubi and himself away. While you took off with his doppelganger.

Natan: Well ain't that some shit! Exactly when did that fucker arrived to Neo Aigosthena? Why wasn't he with the other heroes?

Pruflas: Though I'm the Don of Neo Aigosthena. Keeping tabs on everything that takes place in this here. Even I cannot keep up with everyone and everything that happens. I do not blame any of you for Takeda Tobirama's presence here. That man is a true wonderer. Not even a psychic could predict his next move. However now that he's with Okubi and company. I'll finally have the opportunity to kill that son of a bitch! Especially now the real Okubi knows of our location. I'm certain Okubi along with Tobirama and the others. Shall be coming here real soon to kill me. Now to dispose of this clone

Still holding Okubi's Shadow Clone into the air. Pruflas uses his demonic powers to set the clone on fire. Watching it burn to ashes before his very eyes. Now with Okubi's clone destroyed. Pruflas moves onto his next orders on the agenda

Pruflas: Now with the clone eliminated! It's time I take care of Ulric. Knowing that his assassins and him were destined for defeat. I couldn't allow such a powerful demon to fall victim to the heroes. Which is why I tasked Lita and Natan to capture him. Once Now wake up Ulric from his sleep. It's time I begin with his corruption under my control. It won't be long before Okubi and his friends come for us. Let us use the time we have to ready ourselves. Meanwhile Karen with Stanford to assist her. Will begin the preparations for Thirteenth Underground Tournament. Make sure Xiaoyu knows the meaning of suffering. The time you get through with her

Karen: Oh I sure will bossy boss! "I'll also make sure you get what's coming to you too. My plans for Xiaoyu and the fighters will be what brings about your demise you bastard!"

 Back at the Gold Hotel Okubi had awoken from his sleep. Thanks to the work of his Shadow Clone. Okubi now knew the location of Pruflas. However since it was still too early to awaken the others. Remembering his conversation with Othello earlier. Okubi simply decided to with Eligos next to him. Using the time he had to rest. Tomorrow Okubi would begin tracking down Pruflas

3. Mihoshi

 Othello who had just finished helping Okubi's troubled mind. Othello order the others in the room to allow Okubi to rest. Now it was time to go take care of business in the Underworld. Making her way towards her daughter Hellin on the balcony. Once standing before her daughter. Before Othello could say a single word. Hellin had walk over to her mother and hugged her. Placing a kiss on her mother's cheek. Othello instinctively hugged Hellin back and kissed her on the forehead. After a touching moment between mother and daughter. Othello and Hellin breaks free from one another. Othello then begins speaking to Hellin

Othello: Awe baby mommy loves you so much. I also know when you kiss and hug me like this. That means you're ten seconds away from exploding on someone. I hope you aren't going to place any harm on Lisa

Hellin: I'm not worried about that foul mouthed deco orange haired angel. I scanned everyone's minds minus Nara and Okubi's. I knew Xiaoyu was going to intervene before Lisa did anything reckless. 

Othello: I wanted to punch Anna for not stepping in to protect her Queen, but the little bitch was too busy crying in her father's arm. Before you say anything I won't punish her for it. Even I can understand the woman isn't exactly herself. Learning the truth about Sel and why she was killed can't be easy on her. None the less both you and I have business to attend. First we are going to the Underworld Council. Telling them that Ulric and his guild made an attempt on our lives. Therefore having what's left of his guide exterminated. Then we need to go speak with your sister back at Babylon. In order to make sure nothing has happened to her or my Kingdom

Hellin: Mom that fucking bitch is responsible for this! I can feel in my fucking soul that FUCKING BITCH BETRAYED US!

Othello: Hellin lower your damn voice down! I don't want the others in our business. James always has a good hint on what I plan on doing. I don't need the rest of them getting any ideas. Times like these makes me glad Okubi is still unconscious. Anyways until I'm certain that your sister knew about Ulric's attack on us. Don't you fucking dare do any harm to her. Otherwise I will disown your ass! Do I make myself clear Hellina!

 Hearing her mother state her actual full first name. Hellin decided to take a few seconds before responding. Once Hellin had gather her thoughts. Hellin figure the proper response for her mother. One that would not further her mother's anger towards her

Hellin: Okay I promise I will not do anything irrational once we see Mihoshi. However mother if Mihoshi did know about Ulric's attack against us. I only pray you will give her a proper punishment

Othello: Hellin my sweet daughter and future ruler of Babylon. IF MIhoshi has betrayed us. I will personally allow you to deal with her as I see fit. Until I have stated otherwise. Mihoshi had nothing to do with Ulric's attempt to have us killed.  Now open a portal back to the Underworld. Try to have us as close to Carcass Island as possible. The less traveling with have to do the better. I hope my fellow Demon Lords are not too far away are already within the area

Hellin: The current Demon Lords are Lix Tetrax, Sid Sorrow, Moloch, Alvister, Beleth, yourself, and Apollyn's elder half sister Lisa Alice

Othello: That fucking scheming bitch! Stoled Jazan immediately after Yukimaru's death. Ruining my chance for making Jazan apart of Babylon. I was even thinking about giving that country to Mihoshi. Anyways let's save the chit chatting once we are back in our home realm

 Hellin opens a portal on the balcony. Before both women step inside of the portal. Hellin and Othello turn to their comrades. Waving goodbye until they meet again. Everyone waves back except Lisa and Okubi. Now inside of the portal. Hellin and Othello's soul and body are being transported to the Underworld. Currently within the Underworld Hellin and Othello find themselves in a familiar place. Sensing the peculiar miasma around the place. Othello bounces up and down like a giddy school girl

Othello: This place is definitely the City of Anarcy! Which means we're only two hours away from Carcass Island. Very good job Hellin. I knew you wouldn't let me down. Now before we find someone to sail us to Carcass Island. I first need to get in contact with the other Demon Lords. I believe there's a pretty popular radio station around here. 

Hellin: You're talking about BLAZING 135? The guy Manny Da Mighty along with his co host DJ Allocen and Angelyse 

Othello: Wow you actually known them by name?

Hellin: Anna enjoys his morning show. Especially his segment where he makes fun of various high profile demons in the Underworld. Mainly demon celebrities like Agramon, Badgirl BeeBee, and current "it" rapper Acid Reign

Othello: Had any of them said anything negative about me?

Hellin: Not really considering the fact they don't want to die. Only a fool like a radio host would dare speak ill about someone in your position of power. Course DJ Allocen does have a crush on you. Please do not entertain his crush. Once I take you over to the location of the radio station

Othello: Awe why you gotta cock block your mom Hellin? Anyways lead me to the location of the radio station. The faster we get there. The quicker I can alert the others to meet us at Carcass Island

Hellin: Understood! Right this way mom

 Forty five minutes later Hellin and Othello arrive at the Radio Station. After Othello sends out a message to her fellow Demon Lords. Along with getting DJ Allocen's number despite Hellin's asking her not too. Othello and Hellin exit the radio station. In order to find someone to take them to Carcass Island. Othello and Hellin had ran into a sailor a few minutes later. Arriving to the Carcass Island two hours later. Othello now wearing a luxurious black dress with boob window. Hellin along with her mother made their way to the Red House. One of the many meeting places in the Underworld for high ranking demons. Shortly after Hellin and Othello arrived to the Red House. The first demon to join them was Sid Sorrow. Accompanied by his many bodyguards. Followed by Demon Lords Moloch, Alvister, Beleth, Lix Tetrax, and lastly Lisa Alice. All of them accompanied by their respective bodyguards except for Lisa Alice. Who's only company was the Demon Spirit Carabia. Also joining the Demon Lords were other demons in various political positions. Bringing alone with them their own bodyguards. Finally there were enough demons present for her liking. Othello began explaining her situation to her fellow Demon Lords and politicians. Upon learning of Ulric's and his guild's actions. The majority of the attending demons agreed that The Order needs to be eliminated. Course Lix Tetrax had a few moles he wished to have safely removed. Course if they were still amongst the remaining assassins in Vyostik. Beleth taking upon himself to lead an army to exterminate whatever remain of The Order. Along with assistants from Lix Tetrax and Lisa Alice. The Demon Lords considered the meeting adjourned. Everyone began making their way back to their designated Kingdoms and homes. Now with The Order situation out of the way. It was time for Othello and Hellin to return to Babylon

 Arriving to Babylon about three and a half hours later. Thanks to a demonic dragon Alvister had summoned to ride Hellin and Othello. Once the two women had reached their destination. Alvister's dragon began it's journey back to his master. Immediately spotting the Queen and the Princess at the stairs leading to the castle door. The visible servants bow before the presence of their current and potential future leader. Othello greets her servants with a warm smile. The servant Moses particularly is thrilled to see Hellin back in Babylon. Two of the servants opens the doors for Othello and Hellin. Once inside of her castle. The other servants bow to their Queen and Princess as well. Othello waves and blows kisses as she makes her way towards her Throne Room. The very exact place Mihoshi should be located. Meanwhile sitting on her mother's throne in the Throne Room. Sensing the presence of both her mother and Hellin. Mihoshi quickly thinks to herself a proper lie. Despite her immunity to Hellin and her mother's telepathy. Never has Mihoshi been able to tell her mother a lie without her seeing through it. Hoping and praying she can hide her involvement with Ulric and his assassination plans against her mother and sister. Mihoshi calms herself as she prepares to confront her mother. Othello arriving to the Throne Room minutes later but without Hellin beside her. Mihoshi is relied she doesn't have to see her sister's face anytime soon. Now if only she can avoid explaining herself to her mother. Unfortunately Mihoshi isn't so lucky. Immediately switching places with her mother. Othello now back on her throne while Mihoshi stands before her. Othello begins to speak to her eldest daughter.

Othello: Well hello Mihoshi my sweet. Did you have any problems running my Kingdom during my short absence?

Mihoshi: Not at all mother. Honestly it's been pretty lax minus dealing with various politicians. Course I also have my own businesses to handle. Being an entrepreneur and ruling Babylon at the same time is pretty exhausting. Still I couldn't ask for a more rewarding job. Almost makes me sad knowing I'm not next in line in ruling Babylon

Othello: Whatever makes you say that?

Mihoshi: Mother please spare me the mind games. I know you're grooming Hellin to take your position someday. Despite the fact I'm your first born child

Othello: Well that maybe true Mihoshi, but who's to say I won't change my mind? Anyways I gotta get back to Mayland soon so I'll make this quick hun. Now Mihoshi rather you tell me a lie or a truth. I promise you I will not place any harm upon you. I will not disown you, take away your inheritance, or remove my stock from your company. However regardless of what comes out of your mouth. I'm not responsible for anything that happens after our talk. Do I make myself clear young lady?

Mihoshi: Yes mother

Othello: Well okay here is my question. Did Ulric visited you earlier today?

Mihoshi: Yes he most certainly did mother. He was looking for you but I told him your were in Mayland. I could had mentioned Neo Aigosthena, but I felt that was none of his business. Telling him you were in Mayland was more than enough information

Othello: Oh so Ulric did come to Babylon. Why didn't you send one of my servants to alert me?

Mihoshi: I didn't want to bother you with it. I was able to assist him after all. No need for him to bother you. Exactly how did you know I spoken to Ulric? "Perhaps she read the minds of the servants... dammit! While I did what I did to protect Babylon. I was also fucking hoping Ulric would succeed in killing my mother and sister. That worthless piece of shit!. I should had warned my mother as soon as Ulric had left Babylon. That's what I fucking get for putting my fate into the worthless maggot! Now I gotta lie my ass off! Even if what my mother is saying about not punishing me is true. I don't want her to know I plotted to have her killed. I couldn't fucking care less about Hellin, but knowing I betrayed my mother isn't a good look for me. Anyways she doesn't look suspicious of me thus far. Hopefully I can continue to tell her half truths. Leading her to believe I had nothing involved with Ulric's attempts to kill them"

Othello: Well whatever you "assisted" him with didn't seem to be enough. Did you know Ulric ended up seeking Hellin and me out?

Mihoshi: Why would he do such a thing? I told him you were vacationing in Mayland, but I told him not to bother you until you return. That persistent son of a bitch! Exactly what did Ulric do once he found Hellin and you?

Othello: Nothing much other than the fact he tried to fucking kill us! Ulric along with his assassins attacked Okubi, the heroes, Hellin, and myself. After Ulric had learned of our involvement with James. Ulric deemed Hellin and I traitors. Which made him decide to kill all of us. Fortunately Okubi, myself, and the others proved stronger than Ulric and his assassins could handle. Course many innocent mortals died because of Ulric's actions. Then again what does a few fucking humans mean to us? Other than their dicks. I care nothing for mortal men. I despise mortal women even more. However that's really isn't the point. The fact that you knew Ulric wanted to see me but didn't contact me. Due to your poor decision making. Both your sister and my life were in jeopardy. Thank Satan the two of us are stronger than we look. Never would I imagine you Mihoshi to make such a stupid decision. Didn't I always tell you never to keep anything from me? Even if it seems insignificant to you. It better you pester me with small details than keep them from me. What if Ulric decided to attack me while I was alone? Instead of me sitting here on my throne chair speaking to you. I could had been laying dead in a dumpster in Neo Aigosthena. No one there would had recognize me. I would had just been another dead body lying in the streets. Thankfully Ulric was too stupid to do such a thing.

Mihoshi: I'm so so sorry mother. If I had believe Ulric was planning to kill you--

Othello: Kill me and Hellin

Mihoshi: Kill both you and Hellin. I would had sent Moses, Kyona, or someone to Neo Aigosthena to you immediately! Mother please know I had nothing to do with Ulric's attack on you

Othello: I never said you did silly. Until now I just thought you were just stupid

 Realizing she had accidentally outed herself as Ulric's accomplice. Mihoshi thought to herself as she began to panic

Mihoshi: "SHIT! Until now I carefully choose every word that came out of my mouth. However the longer this conversation went. The harder it was to say the right thing. The harder it was to hide my guilt from her. Now all of her suspicions of me betraying Hellin and her. I pretty much just confirmed my dealings with Ulric. Dammit I made a royal fucking mistake. Even though my mother said she wouldn't disown me, take away my inheritance, or remove her stock from my companies. Never once did she say she wouldn't have me killed. Perhaps it's no longer beneficial for me to lie. Then again to outright admit I wanted both Hellin and her dead... I don't think I can bring myself to say that. At least not about my mother. Even if Ulric succeeded in killing Hellin, but my mother had lived. Even that would had been alright for me. Unfortunately with both of their survival. This situation does not bold well for me. I guess all I can really do now is be as honest as possible. I hope she can forgive me for betraying her"

Othello: So I'm going to ask you Mihoshi. Did you work with Ulric and his assassins to have Hellin and I killed?

Mihoshi: First mother I wish to apologize in advance from lying to you. I was just scared you would hate me or worst. If I had told you about the deal I made with Ulric. During the late afternoon Ulric and his two bodyguards had arrived to Babylon. Ulric had told me about Hellin and you thwarted his assassins's attempts to kill James. Ulric told all of us from day one. That regardless of our personal dealings with James. If he ever sent assassins to kill him. Never to interfere with their mission. Otherwise Ulric will view us as enemies as well. Remember Ulric is the reason you even gotten to Babylon and the first place. Marrying my father and eventually gaining his Kingdom...

Othello: Mihoshi now wait a fucking minute? Did you really think Ulric is the reason I'm the fucking Queen of Babylon today? Look here you dizzy bitch! If it wasn't for me fucking over James many centuries ago. I wouldn't be the position I'm in today. Ulric ain't do shit but tell me about Diablo. Everything else I did by my motherfucking self! So don't hit me with that "Ulric is the reason I became Queen of Babylon in the first place. Othello is the reason Othello is the current ruler in this bitch! Never get that shit twisted ever again in your motherfucking life! Now back to explaining to me why you betrayed Hellin and I

Mihoshi: Anyways once Ulric had made me aware of your betrayal. Ulric told me if I allowed him to kill both Hellin and you without the interference of Babylon and myself. That he would spare Babylon from any harm.

Othello: So which means Ulric already knew that I was in Neo Aigosthena. Therefore you lied when you said Ulric was looking for me?

Mihoshi: That's not entirely true mother. Ulric didn't know you were in Neo Aigosthena until after he confronted me. Ulric first expected only Hellin had helped James escape death. However once he realized that you and Hellin were both in Neo Aigosthena. Ulric deduced that you would side with Hellin. Thus making yourself a traitor as well. Which both you and I know was the correct conclusion for him to make. After making a deal with Ulric to leave Babylon alone. That I wouldn't interfere with Hellin and your assassination. Which would of course allow me to become Queen. Assuming Ulric and his assassins would had been successful. However since both you and I are having this conversation. It's obviously I betted on the wrong horse. Mother I'm sorry if my jealousy along with my concerns about The Order. Lead me into making the poor decision of betraying you. While the thought of becoming Queen was too good to pass up. The thought of losing you would had been very hard on me. I know I don't act like it all the time, but the fact of the matter is. I love you very very much mommy

Othello: Oh I love you too honey. Which is why I already promised you when we first began our talk. That I wouldn't punish you in any shape, form, or fashion. All I wanted to hear is your reasons for betraying Hellin and myself. Being quite honest with you sweetie. I'm actually very proud of you. I never expected you would risk betraying Hellin and me. In order to gain the power you had always wanted. If I had been in your position. I would had done the very exact same thing. However I just wouldn't had did it with a fool like Ulric. I bet you went as far as promising to marry him as well? Now if that had actually happened. Even as a lowly demon spirit. I would had haunted your ass for marrying that loser. Greed, scheming, deception, manipulation! These are qualities I like to see in my daughters. Even though your plans didn't fall through my dear. I absolutely admire your hunger to become Queen over you sister. Mihoshi my love I'm so proud of you. However while things between you and I are good. I wish the same could be said about your sister. Never once did you show any guilt about betraying Hellin. Well of course you didn't since you absolutely hate her! Thankfully Hellin's feelings towards you aren't no different. Anyways honey mommy is going to go get freshen up. Oh by the way Mihoshi. I will be punishing you after all, but not in the way you expect. I know good and well your personal bodyguards Devin, Curtis, Myla, and Thylla knew about your dealings with Ulric. I can forgive my daughter for betraying me, but her guards to betray their Queen is absolutely unforgivable. Once I finished with my shower sweetie. I want you to gather up your personal guards. So that I may have each and every single one of them painfully executed

Mihoshi: Is that all mother?

Othello: Yes sweetie that is all. Well from me anyways. Only Satan knows what Hellin has in stored for you. Back in Neo Aigosthena not only did your sister battle against six of Ulric's deadliest assassins. Anna was nearly killed by one of Ulric's assassins and we both know how deeply Hellin cares about Anna. Even though Anna was able to be saved. Thanks to one of the healers fighting alongside her. The very fact that Anna nearly lost her life. Had made Hellin even angrier than having nearly lost her own. Course Anna's near death experience wasn't for nothing. Fearing that she may lose her dearest friend. Hellin was able to transform herself into a powerful demon. A powerful feat you have yet to learn. Anyways it's time I get ready to take my shower. Have fun with your sister until I return

 Othello removes herself off of her throne chair. Gives Mihoshi a quick kiss on the forehead. Before making her way to the bathroom with two of her male servants following her. Seconds after her mother has disappeared from her line of sight. Mihoshi felt the presence of Hellin coming near her. However Mihoshi couldn't exactly figure out where Hellin would attack her from. Covering both of her hands in electricity. Preparing for a showdown against her sister. Mihoshi continue to keep a sharp eye out for Hellin. Not wanting to be taken by surprise. However just before Mihoshi could pinpoint Hellin's aura. The wall leading to her mother's Throne Room is broken through. Leaping from behind the broken wall. Hellin lunges at Mihoshi with the ferocity of a hungry lion. Knocking Mihoshi down to the ground. Hellin immediately starts striking Mihoshi with powerful punches to her face. After taking several deadly blows to the face. Mihoshi manages to surround her body in electricity. Forcing Hellin off her body with a high voltage zap. Hellin recovers from Mihoshi's electric shock. Hellin rushes towards Mihoshi with the intent the kill. Mihoshi quickly rising off of the ground. Runs towards Hellin with the same killer intent.

 Twenty minutes later Othello exits from the bathroom. Listening to her daughters attempting the kill each other the entire time. Othello orders her servants to wrap her body in her favorite baby pink towel. Othello with her servants following behind her. Goes to put an end to the deadly bout between her daughters. Successfully stopping Hellin and Mihoshi from killing each other. Othello orders her servants to repair the damaged Throne Room. While both Othello, Mihoshi, and Hellin prepare the execution for Mihoshi's personal bodyguards. Finishing her business in Babylon. Othello bids Mihoshi a farewell before Hellin and she returns to Neo Aigosthena. Mourning the deaths of her personal bodyguards. Mihoshi promises never to betray her mother again. Unless of course a better opportunity presents itself. However Mihoshi has plenty of time to wait until the day Hellin becomes Queen. Perhaps then Mihoshi can put her treachery to good use. In the meantime Mihoshi will continue ruling Babylon in her mother's absence. Once Othello and Hellin gets back to the Gold Hotel. Othello expect Okubi to be ready for their private chat

4. Iron Zabel

 Surviving her battle against Angelina, Nara, and Lilith's Pet Dragon. Once Celia had recovered from her great fall from the sky. Celia began making her way back to her real Master. Since the beginning of her involvement with Pruflas and his Elite Servants. Celia knew Pruflas was using her for his own gain. However Celia intentionally made herself available to Pruflas. In order to retrieve information from her real master. The very man responsible for making her the virtually immortal being she is today. The man happens to also be the heroes other main target... Iron Zabel! Arriving to Bosman two hours later. One of the most dangerous areas within Neo Aigosthena and the location of Iron's hideout. Making sure no one is watching her. Celia makes her way to her Master's hideout. Once Celia makes it inside of Iron's hideout. Celia is greeted by Iron's many cult members. Not wanting to be bother by his lackeys. Celia began ordering them to send for their leader. However before Celia could even finish her sentence. Iron was making his way towards her. Relied to see his assassin alive. Iron begins to ask Celia about her experience at the Elestrial Market street fair. Along with details about Pruflas. 

Iron: Greetings Celia. I hope your night wasn't too disastrous. The look on your face is most certainly unpleasant

Celia: Falling ninety feet from the fucking sky. Is the reason I'm fucking pissed off! I'm virtually immortal but my body hurts like a bitch! Damn that Angelina and her fucking dragon! I will never summon Two Headed Terror again after such a failure. The Elestial Market was a bloody mess. Too bad I didn't get to kill anyone tonight

Iron: I was watching the news about thirty minutes ago. They had a gorgeous brunette dressed in blue and and a attractive black male in a red jumper. Talking to the police and EMT workers about the massacre that took place in the Elestial Market. Never before such a tragedy has befallen Neo Aigosthena's yearly famous street fair. So many innocent sheep were slaughtered by those demons. Speaking of demons what did you learn from Pruflas?

Celia: Nothing more than you already know. However I found out that Pruflas has a step son named Okubi. One of the suppose "heroes" hired by King Onyxe to save Mayland from Pruflas and the remaining members of The Children of Ruin. Okubi and his friends have came to Neo Aigosthena. In order to eliminate Pruflas and possibly learn the location of the remaining members of The Children of Ruin. Other than that Pruflas seems to still be unaware of your jailbreak. That's all the major news I have to tell you. Everything else ranges from bullshit to even more bullshit

Iron: Well seeing that you were bested by one of Okubi's friends. I can definitely tell Pruflas has his work cut out for him

Celia: That's if Poisonous One wasn't successful in capturing Okubi. However something tells me that fucker's plans didn't go as expected

Iron: And you are absolutely correct. I foreseen someone coming to Okubi's aid. Poisonous One did not succeed in capturing Okubi. However Okubi now knows how to find Pruflas. Which will prove to be very interesting. Also it will keep both groups busy. Allowing us to put my master plan into action. However did any of heroes discovered your true intentions?

Celia: Far as I know. They believed I was just another of Pruflas's pathetic lackeys. Did you have a vision of something else?

Iron: The same way I foreseen Okubi being rescued. I also seen a threat attempting to put a stop to my dark ambitions. Something tells me we maybe encounter Okubi's friends as well. If only my premonitions were more clear. 

Celia: Your precognition abilities reminds me a lot like that Phoebe chick from Charmed. Giving you the jest of a situation, but not showing you the full detail. I guess it beats not knowing nothing at all. I'm guessing I should be prepare myself then. Honestly I'm happy some poor soul or souls is going to attempt to stop us. I worried tonight would be my last night of action until your ritual was completed. Thankfully I'll get to put my skills to the test much sooner. "I cannot wait until your ritual is completed. Just right before you can become a God. I'm going to kill you and take your place." In the meantime I'm going to get some rest. Can't wait to bullshit my morning away. Knowing that tomorrow will be the last day the citizens of Neo Aigosthena get to live. Because once night falls and the Hour of Ascension begins. The horror that awaits them makes tonight's tragedy

Enjoy these last few days in Neo Aigosthena. Before everything turns to hell. If those fuckers thought what happened in the Elestial Market was bad. The horror that awaits them. Shall make tonight's tragedy seem like a cake walk. I cannot wait to hear the scream of innocents being sacrificed. It's going to be a riot! HA HA HA HA HA HA!

 Celia walks pass Iron and his cult members. Heading towards her room for some rest. Iron taking a few minutes to ponder to himself. Regardless of whoever attempts to thwart his plans for God Hood. Iron is certain of one thing. Celia does not mean him well. However until the time comes to dispose of her. Iron will continue keeping Celia close to him. After all he didn't turn her into a Beyonder like himself for nothing. In order to make sure his ambitions goes as planned. He'll need all the help he can get. Including keeping a self serving murderer like Celia amongst his rank. Just a few more days before his hard work pays off. Then nobody besides possibly God Asira himself. Will be able to stop the Beyonder turned God Iron Zabel

5. Ariana

 A little after five in the morning. Othello and Hellin return from the Underworld back to the Gold Hotel. Entering their bedroom where the others were located. Upon opening the door Othello and Hellin saw everyone asleep except Okubi and Eligos. Turning his head in the direction of Othello and Hellin. Okubi puts down the book Eligos and him were reading to the side. Hellin being the first to enter the room. Taps a spot on the large maroon couch between Futanari and Lisa. Hellin falls asleep shortly after making herself comfortable. Wearing only a purplish silver nightgown. Okubi quietly removes himself off the bed. Not wanting to wake up either Angelina or Tobirama. Eligos follows right behind his Master. Othello sends Okubi a telepathic message where to meet her. Before making her way downstair. Okubi slips on Xiaoyu's bunny slippers before exiting the room with Eligos.

 Arriving to the back of the Gold Hotel seven minutes later. Okubi and Eligos spots Othello drinking a glass of blood infused grape wine. Now with Okubi and reluctantly Eligos in her presence. Othello places her glass on a nearby statue. Othello begins her conversation with the two men

Othello: So before we begin our chat about Iron Zabel, Beyonders, and Ariana. Do either of the two of you care to here about Hellin and mines mini adventures in the Underworld?

Okubi: Did you give Mihoshi her adequate punishment for betraying Hellin and you?

Othello: HEY! How did you know Mihoshi had betrayed us. Despite Hellin's outburst earlier at the hotel. I made sure no one had heard what Hellin said. Plus you were in a deep fucking sleep when Hellin brought up Mihoshi. So how in the fuck did you realize it was Mihoshi who betrayed us to Ulric?

Okubi: Easily. After I had awoken from my sleep. The first thing that came to mind was Hellin and you going to the Underworld. While you had already had a good reason for returning to your home realm. Alerting your fellow Demon Lords and the Underworld Council about Ulric and his assassination clans attack on us. It got me to think who would had benefited the most. If Ulric and his assassins succeeded in killing Hellin and you? The first person that popped into mind was Mihoshi. Ulric had to form some sought of alliance with Mihoshi. In order to attack Hellin and you. Without fear of entering a war with Babylon. Nothing else makes sense. Even Ulric's intense hate for James. Had Mihoshi put up some resistance towards Ulric's plans to attack Hellin, you, and the rest of us. Better yet declared war against Ulric and The Order. Once he confronted her about killing Hellin and you. I highly doubt Ulric would had attacked us the way he did. Either he would had waited for another opportunity to kill James alone. That or attempt to have us killed off one by one. However I did not come here to discuss your traitorous daughter. I want answers about Beyonder along with Iron Zabel and finally Ariana

Othello: Despite how much you make my stomach turn. I must say you're smarter than many give you credit for. If only you felt more comfortable in the Underworld. Perhaps you could easily become a member of the Underworld's Elite Society or become a politician. Sadly half demons like yourself tend to gain such favorable position in the Underworld. Especially ones that kill their mother in spite of the reasons. Anyways let's get to the reason why I brought you here. Earlier you asked me what is a Beyonder! However for me to properly answer that question. I must first explain to you who is Iron Zabel and his origin. 

Okubi: I'm all ears Othello

Eligos: That goes for me too

Othello: Many centuries ago before Iron Zabel became the man he is today. Formally known as the mortal sage Arnold Urbonas hailing from the country Vanadium. Prior to becoming one of Balam's disciples. Shortly after he lost his position of power in the Underworld. Balam left the Underworld and started a new life in Asira. Since Balam and I were good friends with benefit. Even he began creating his cult on Asira. The two of us made sure to stay in contact. About five years after Balam had created his cult. Gathering various disciples all around Asira. Teaching them various magical arts. During those many years on Asira. Balam would experiment on his various disciple. Using his knowledge on magic. In order to make his disciples stronger than the average mortal. Pretty much transforming his disciples into beings he called Beyonders. A process that requires killing the mortal body. Which forcing the individual's soul to exit their lifeless body. However instead of allowing the soul to make it's journey to the Spirit Realms. Balam would force the soul back into it's lifeless body. If the individual possessed a soul strong enough. The individual's spirit would re enter their body. No longer burden by common mortal weaknesses. Successfully becoming what Balam refers to as a Beyonder. However every time Balam attempted this experiment on one of his disciples. None of them ever survived the experience. Despite the many failures Balam continue with the experiments. 

Eligos: That bastard! Balam treated his disciple like nothing more than tools for his disposal.

Okubi: Isn't that the typical behavior of Cult Leaders? Putting their needs and desires above those who foolishly follow them. It isn't surprising to me that Balam treated all his disciple like they were expendable 

Othello: Can a bitch finish her story before you two motherfuckers put in your two cents

Okubi: Geez sorry you are so dammit long winded. Proceed your majesty

Othello: Bitch! Anyways none of Balam selected disciples survived the process of becoming a Beyonder. However that all changed when Balam decided to use his earliest disciple Arnold. Unlike the others who Balam attempted to make Beyonders. Arnold possessed a soul strong enough. It was able to return to his dead body. Forcing himself to resurrect from the dead. Becoming Balam first and only successful Beyonder. After having been broken free from his mortal weaknesses. Arnold had changed his name to Zabel. Shortly after Zabel had became a Beyonder. Balam started to notice a change in his behavior. I had some concerns when I first learned about this. I feared Arnold... I mean Zabel may attempt to overthrow Balam. However I knew... well believed. Balam would not be de-throned from power twice. Especially not by one of his own disciples. However during my last conversation with Balam. I knew something terrible was about to happen to him. Which is why I sent one of my servants to Balam's location without telling him. Unfortunately upon my servant arriving to Balam's last known location. What she came across was absolutely horrifying. Everyone in Balam's secret base including Balam had been brutally murdered. My servant had gathered all the heads of the dead. Including Balam and brought them back to me. After I look at each and every head presented to me. I knew that none of them were that of Balam's disciple Zabel. Which meant that Zabel was the one that killed Balam and the other disciples. How he did it I didn't know, but Zabel was certainly their killer. Grieving the loss of one of my dearest friends. I had thought about having my assassins hunt down Zabel. However at the end I decided against it. I didn't think a man like him would get very far in life. Obviously I was wrong. Now not only do we have to take down Pruflas. Iron Zabel needs to be eliminated as well. I can't help but feel Iron Zabel's existence is my fault. If only I had voice my concern to Balam. Perhaps all of this could had been avoided

Okubi: I know how you feel Othello, but you cannot blame yourself for Iron Zabel. 

Eligos: It wasn't your fault that Balam couldn't predict the behavior of his disciple. Let alone ending up being killed by him. That's the risk one takes when you give someone power. That very power you give to them can be turned against you. Mihoshi is a good example of such actions

Othello: Oh shut the fuck up Eligos! I do not need to be reminded of Mihoshi's betrayal

Okubi: Anyways do not blame yourself for Iron Zabel. 

Othello: That's easier said than done Okubi. If only I had said something to Balam. Even if he had laughed at my concerns. At least it would had made him slightly more cautious around Zabel. Now here we are centuries later. Dealing with a threat that could had possibly been eliminated centuries ago. 

Okubi: Othello before we move onto Ariana. Do you really want to help us with taking down Pruflas or Iron Zabel? After all you did come here to take a break from your duties as Queen. Not to aid Hellin, myself, and the others against the threats within Neo Aigosthena.

Othello: As much as I want to enjoy my vacation. While I was back in Babylon. I thought to myself what would be my next move? Either ignore the troubles happening in Neo Aigosthena and leave the fighting to you guys. Or sacrifice my free time in order to avenge a dear friend. Honestly I wouldn't sacrifice my vacation to help in taking down Pruflas. However Iron Zabel is a whole different story. Balam has been dead for centuries, but he's one of the few demons I really considered a friend. I will never forgive Iron Zabel for killing him. Therefore I decided I want to help out with taking him down. 

Okubi: I can't say I wouldn't feel differently if I were in your position. Both Hellin, Anna, and you going after Zabel sounds like a good idea

Othello: Do we really need to bring Anna along with us?

Okubi: I think the three of you working together would be best. Course nothing is set in stone until we discuss our plans with everyone later today. Now may you please discuss your history with Ariana?

Othello: Wow I gotta go that far down memory lane. Somethings I wish I didn't remember, but a promise is a promise. Unlike Balam who I knew after becoming Queen. My encounter with Ariana was back when I was a prostitute. Still under the employment of the dike Madam Winters. I was sent to Monaco to pleasure a group of mobsters. Using the name "Gisela" I left the Underworld to do my job in Monaco. While entertaining the Moroccan mobsters at their party. Everything was going great, I was truly enjoying myself. Something I normally don't do when entertaining non demons. Anyways I had to run to the bathroom real quick. I thought nothing could go wrong, but BITCH was I motherfucking WRONG! The moment I stepped out of the bathroom. I saw a young green hair girl wearing a ivory nightgown cover in blood. Okubi when I tell you I have never been so scared. Since I witnessed my father raped before my very eyes. That girl look like something that popped out a japanese horror. Not yet possessing my telepathic powers back then. I didn't know what was going on. However before I could even attempt to hide or run. The girl began killing everyone attending the party. Witnessing the mobsters and mortal prostitutes being violently murdered before my eyes. I feared it would only be seconds before I was next. However when I was the only living soul left. The girl simply just stared at me. Before I could even plead for my life. The girl began speaking to me. First stating her name to be Ariana Cosme. The sole daughter of a Piano Maker. Both her parents made beautiful pianos for sell. While they sold many unique pianos. The family kept a special piano that was passed down from generation. Unfortunately one day a group of Moroccan mobster had approached Ariana's parents. The very same mobsters she killed minutes ago. Ariana's parents didn't mind selling them their pianos. However the piano the mobsters wanted wasn't for sell. That of course made them very angry. Thus they threaten to kill Ariana's parents that very same day. Which of course was hours before their little party. That's when I realize those fuckers were celebrating having killed her parents. However when I ask Ariana what had happened to her. Ariana had told me she hid while the mobster murdered her parents. After the mobster had done their dirty deed. Ariana came out of hiding and saw her parent's lifeless bloodied bodies. This caused Ariana to immediately die from a broken heart. However instead of staying dead like her folks. Ariana had became what is known as a Revenant! A vengeful spirit that wanted to kill the ones who murdered her beloved parents. Which lead to the bloody event at the party. After my conversations with Ariana. The girl simply vanished from sight. Once I was able to regain my composure. I quickly opened a portal back to the Underworld. That was one of the scariest things I ever lived to experience. Now learning that Ariana is back in Neo Aigosthena. The very reason we even know about Iron Zabel being here. Sorry if I reacted badly to your question earlier Okubi. It's just that I wasn't ready to relive such memories

Okubi: I can't say I blame you Othello. I wonder with so much messed up shit happened to you. I wonder if that's the reason you act the way you do

Othello: Oh honey I would be a rude, manipulative, scandalous, condescending bitch! Even if I never experience a single bad thing in my life. That's just who the fuck I am. The horrible things I experience in life just strengthens those qualities

Eligos: That story makes me think of that Beyonce' song "Six Inch Heels" Especially the verse "She murdered everybody and I was her witness"

Othello: I suppose so. Anyways now that's out of the way. I would love to at least get two hours of sleep. Before preparing for our fight against Pruflas and Iron Zabel later today

Okubi: Yeah I could use a light nap before getting ready for war. Anyways thanks for having this talk with me Othello. I know you may not care, but I appreciate the way you been behaving towards me and everyone else. Even if it doesn't last forever. Please know it's very appreciated

Othello: Oh don't be fooled Okubi. I'm only being nice because I rather save my rage for those more deserving. This doesn't change the fact I still don't like you or your mother. However constantly being a bitch to you proves nothing. Just because we don't like one another. Doesn't mean we shouldn't be civil. Especially since we are fighting for the same thing

Okubi: I agree and I thank you for it. Now let's go get some rest


 After falling prey to his own technique. Both Kenji and Ina are sinked into the ground. Before Vixen/Hellin leaves the demon to their demise. Vixen released a stream of fire from her hands. Sending the stream of fire into the sinkhole behind Kenji and Ina. Having dealt with all the members of K.I.L.L.E.R. Vixen/Hellin went to go rescue the dying Anna. Once underground and sensing the incoming fire. Kenji managed to used the soil above Ina and himself. Strengthening it so the incoming fire wouldn't burn them. Kenji having successfully protected both Ina and himself. Once they felt Vixen's aura was no longer around them. Kenji began getting Ina and himself from underneath the ground. Less than five minutes later. Both Kenji and Ina were back on the surface. Being the only two surviving members of K.I.L.L.E.R. Kenji and Ina mourn the loss of their comrades. After having cried enough tears. Ina begins to speak to Kenji about their next move

Ina: So Kenji... exactly what do we do now? Do we go and look for Lord Ulric? There's a good chance he is still alive

Kenji: After the hell that man has put us through. In order to serve his foolish desire to kill James. Ulric is the last person I want to see. I rather Hellin returned to kill us before I see that sonabitch!

Ina: Kenji don't say such things. I don't want to deal with that demon again anytime soon

Kenji: My apologies Ina. It's just... I fucking knew this wouldn't end well for us. Now Lynx, Lou, Ekoda, and Roberto are dead! 

Ina: But that was Hellin/Vixen's doing

Kenji: But it was Ulric who sent us to fight in the first place! Ina just because we promised our lives to him. That doesn't mean we have to go back to Ulric. It's not like he knows we survived the fight against Hellin. Therefore Ulric will just presume all six of us had died. 

Ina: Are you crazy? That kind of thinking is what put James in his current situation

Kenji: The difference between us and James. We didn't abandon Ulric with him knowing we are alive. Unlike James who directly betrayed Ulric. We served Ulric to the very end. It's not like he'll ever discover we didn't die with the others. Especially after we get rid of our former comrade's body. Once we start our new lives no longer under Ulric's control. We will begin a rigorous training. Preparing for a rematch against Hellin in the future. I also wish to find new recruits for Team K.I.L.L.E.R. Course since no we're no longer going to live in the Underworld. The future members of K.I.L.L.E.R. will most likely be sages. Course we will recruit only the best of the best. Perhaps we can recruit at least one demon as well. However none of that matters unless I have your full support Ina

 Taking a moment to respond to Kenji. Ina thinks about the huge risk they are taking. However thinking about all the times Ulric had endangered their lives. Including this mission which lead to the death of their dear friends. Ina had made up her mind

Ina: If you are welling to do this Kenji then I'm with you

 Happy to hear Ina is on board with his ambitions. Kenji walks over to Ina and they hug each other. After a few seconds of hugging. The two demons hold hands and exits the Elestial Market.
