"Angels are spiritual being believed to act as an attendant, agent, or messenger of God, conventionally represented as human with wings. They exist to keep peace, order, and truth in the name of the creator himself. Angels much like demons and other races in their class are considered as a higher level of mortal or immortal. However angels are still mortal at heart. The very first angel; Lucifer was corrupted by his own pride as he let in the voice of the old ones into his mind and quickly turned on the creator amassing a army of newly created monsters that will soon be the forefathers for all demons in existence from in his torment of fire. Thus a war between angels and demons before any known life was created was started. The creator used his greatest gift, the elements to seal Lucifer who was forever known as Satan within his lake of fire. Even though to this day angels and demons still fight, but the angels main propose in life is to protect all mortals from harm of evil of Satan, or the old ones. However like Lucifer before them, some of the other angels suffer from not greed like demons and other mortals do, but pride... Where some will lend a hand to help the less fortunate, others will turn their back on them. This is why angels do not live within the walls of the white kingdom, but guard it from the outside from any threat or themselves."
Allen continues on his journey to become stronger as he was climbing up a steep hill and lessoning to the music on his device. The sky was dark and burnt clouds fill the sky. "I hope it doesn't rain..." Allen says watching the skies above. As his device switches songs, Allen hears faint sounds. He quickly turns off his device to hear the sounds better. The sounds of metal clashing with something fleshy followed by screaming and roaring. Finally Allen came to the conclusion, "that sounds like a battle!" He quickly runs up the path as the sounds grow louder. Finally Allen reaches the top of the hill and could see a town below on fire. Beast like monsters that run on all four clawed feet, and had a head like a dog, but had muscles like a man with spikes sticking out of their bodies known as demon dogs; charging at people in armor, before they was slain by either blades or holy powers. Allen got a closer look at the people fighting and notes they had wings, bright as the light it's self.
"Angels?" Allen muttered to himself.
More beasts enter the town and it felt like the angels were surrounded. "KEEP FIGHTING BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!! FIGHT OFF THESE BEAST FOR AS LONG AS WE CAN!!!" Shouted the commanding angel.
Allen starts to count how many angels and how many of the beasts. "Their nuts! They are outnumbered and I don't see mortal races that need protecting," Allen said watching in confusion.
One of the angels who were wielding a sword and a shield was suddenly outnumbered by the beasts. He slashes a few of them but two more took their places and strikes at him. He quickly blocks their attack, however one flanks his right that was not his shield hand and quickly pins him down. Allen sees this and quickly draws his warglaives and charges into battle. The beast tries to bite the angel's head off but keeps dodging the bites.
"HEY! GET OFF OF HIM! TENTALUS!!!" Allen body starts to burn up and becomes like a fireball, then at a great speed charges into the beast that was on top of the angel and sets it ablaze.
The angel could only watch Allen through his helm as Allen cuts down any beat the came his way and can only think, "Who is that swordsman?" The beast stop attacking the angels and focus on Allen as each one comes at him ready to sink their teeth into him. Allen is prepared as he swings his arms and extended his wings and starts cutting up each beast one by one. Then the beasts soon surround Allen and lunged at him, but Allen quickly spins like a buzz saw yelling, "Blade Tornado!" and hacking up the beasts in to pieces. Allen stops spinning and quickly jumps up into the air and floats there with his wings. More beasts were on the way, but Allen smiles as the inside of his wings started to glow. "Meteor Wing!" He yells as he flaps his wings and fire rain down on the beast and exploding on impact. The beasts’ numbers was thinned down to a point they started to howl. Allen lands beside the angel who started to get up.
The angel replies in soft tone, "thank you for saving me..."
"Don't thank me yet... their calling their pack leader," Allen responded.
The whole battlefield grew silent. The other angels look at Allen. The commanding Angel growled, "That fool! What does he think he's doing?!" Suddenly a loud roar echo throughout the sky.
"What is that?!" cried the young angel?
"It's Mama or daddy... I don't know, besides don't you know what happens when you go fighting packs of demon dogs like that, they call their alpha?!" Allen said turning to the angel and then back to see trees rumbling and falling.
Out into the light of the flames a massive Demon Dog with three heads but in the middle of all three head was a massive mouth. It let out a break loud enough to break every window in the town. Allen sheaths his blades and puts his hands together and pulls them pass his body.
"Wait... What are you doing?!!" The young angel asks.
A ball of red energy was forming between the palms of Allen's hands. "Simple... I'm going to blast it!" The air and space around Allen's hands started to ripple and distort as the massive beast starts to charge at him. "Ravenix... BUSTER!!!"
Allen cries as he quickly thrust his hands forward and releasing the red energy with the front looking like a bird and blasts the massive demon dog into a flash of light red. When the flash cleared the demon dog was nothing more but a crater in the ground. The other demon dogs run away scream for their life.
"It's over..." Allen whispered.
"How... HOW DARE YOU!!!" Allen turns to see more angels coming at him with the commanding angel enraged. "You ruined our training, how are we supposed to get stronger now that you scared off our training subjects?!" The commanding angel barked.
"You call that training? ONE OF YOUR MEN WAS ABOUT TO BECOME DOG FOOD IF I HADN'T COME ALONG!!!" Allen yelled back at the commander angel.
"Why you..." The angel balled his fist wanting to strike Allen but instead he grabs his helm and removes it, shaking his white hair and red eyes that and stare right through someone's soul. "I am Commander Izen Ashbringer, in changer of the hellguard and I train angels to be the best knights, paladins, priests and monks in our ranks to purge all evil from his holiness' existence! If you do not step aside I will have purged from my sight!" He threatens.
Allen just darted his eyes at him, then shrug and did as he was asked. Izen approached the young angel who was now standing to his feet.
"AS FOR YOU!!! You are weak and pathetic!!! How are you going to protect anyone if you are dead? You're a paladin and paladins don't need help from others! You only got lucky this time, don't expect any outside help or anyone else anytime soon!!!" Izen then quickly turns to the other angels "This will conclude our training for the time being due to the outsider scaring off our training subjects."
All the other angels started to remove their helms it was a mix between boys and girls. Allen looks at the young angel that he had saved taking off his helm. He had brown shaggy hair with green eyes. He pulls some glasses from his armor's pockets and put them on, and stares at Allen with a sad look. Allen couldn't help but to feel sorry for the guy though, during his training they would train off each other with toy swords, of course the teacher had to be hard to make them tough, but fighting the real thing as training was too much.
Izen approaches Allen again "I'm not done with you yet!!! I watched you in the battle and saw you had wings like an angel and your blade skills are impressive. Who and what are you exactly?"
Allen looks at the angel with an annoying look. "My name is Allen Ravenix, I am a Nephilim trained by the Demon Hunters," He said expressing his dislike of Izen in his tone.
Izen's as well as everyone else expression changed after Allen said 'nephilim'.
"He a nephilim?""I though they was all extinct,""Did you hear that he was trained as a demon hunter?" The other angels whispered to one another.
Izen was more dumbfounded then shocked. "You're a nephilim? You're nothing more than a kid," Izen crudely said, "But still it is a surprised that you're the last one left. At any case you should fly up with us back to our sanctuary and stay."
Allen still didn't trust the lead angel. He then triggers his aura sight quietly to look at the angels aura. Everyone else's aura is a deep blue, but the Izen's was bright red.
"I don't know, but I would learn more about you angels," Allen said give a sarcastic smile.
"Great! Ok Troops move out!" The angels spread their wings and flew off into the sky. Allen turns to the lone paladin and look at his aura, and surprisingly his aura was a light blue, right before Allen triggers his aura sight off and takes off with the angels.
As they group flies through the skies, Allen flies up to the paladin.
"So I never caught your name," Allen asks.
The paladin looks at him with unsure look before giving a light smile. "I'm... I'm Michael. Michael Spirit..." he quietly relies.
Allen looks at him blankly at the short answer, "You don't talk much do you?" Michael didn't answer.
"Scared?" Allen asks in a creepy tone, again Michael didn't answer.
Allen then looks at him with annoyed look before saying, "Uhmm.... ok... well nice talking to yeah."
"He doesn't speak unless it is important," One of the angels turns to say.
"Yeah you can kind of say he is kind of shy," another angle laughs.
"Hush! He might be embarrassed for getting chew out by the commander," another one tries to quite them down.
Michael started to fly faster away from Allen, but Allen caught up in no time and then tries to speak to him again.
"Hey look, I know it was not my place but, you can't just block all the time, when someone strikes at you many times they tend to leaves themselves open, and that's when you strike, but if you stay blocking your enemies will have more time to find an opening."
Michael slowly turns to Allen with a sadden look and quietly says, "I know..."
Allen eyes widen. "If you knew then why..."
Before Allen could finish the commander shouted, "We’re here!" Past the clouds of the night sky a crystal sanctuary resting on a plateau came into site as they landed inside the walls. "Welcome to Manus Dei!
The sky was darkened by the glow of the crystal buildings that made up the sanctuary. Many angels could be seen flying around, guarding, or even training.
"Manus Dei?" Allen asks scratching his head.
"It's Latin for 'Hand of God'," one of the other angels relied.
Then the Izen stop and turn to face his group. "Alright troops! I want you to go to your barracks and rest up for tomorrow. As for you Nephilim... Paladin Spirit!" Michael runs beside Allen. "I see that you two are starting to become buddies... show him around," Izen commanded before walking off to a building.
"So... where do you want to see 1st?" Michael quietly asked.
"Do you have food? I'm hungry!" Allen said with his stomach growling like a beast.
Michael directed Allen to a building that was set up like a cafeteria and many angels could be seen eating their food, and chatting with others. Michael got him a plate of hot dogs and fries, Allen on the other hand grabbed 3 boxes of pizza. Michael look at Allen like he was nuts.
"What! I said I was hungry didn't I? And trust me... I LOVE PIZZA!!! The taste of the marinara sauce, the gooey mozzarella cheese, the spicy pepperonis, and the soft dough that holds it all together. It is the food of the gods! I think Zeus and Ra eat this on a daily bases... what do you think?"
Michael looks at Allen like he was crazy, then soon enough Michael started to laugh. "Man you are crazy!" Michael replied.
Allen gave a soft smile as they both paid for their food and sat down and started to eat. Allen ate like a wild animal as he went through the first box without breathing. The other angels turn to see Allen devourer the pizza, and the moment Allen finished his first pray, he lets out a burp that echo throughout the halls of the building. "Excuses me," Allen said blushing before turning to eat the next pizza.
Michael looked down as he eats his meal. Allen looks up at him, and with a mouth full of pizza he asks, "so... you was trained as a paladin?"
Michael looked up at Allen and just nodded. "Well... I started training when I was 15 and been training for seven years," Michael says thinking back on all his training.
"So out of knight, monk, and priest, you choose the way of the paladin. why?" Allen asked, hoping to learn more about Michael.
"I want to protect. Knights fight, Priests heal, and Monks cleanse. I want to be a great paladin like my father. During my training, I was the top of my class, and then after I join Izen's squad is where things began to get worse. I made a mistake, and over time I kept making mistakes to a point it affected me. I became scared of Izen. He's always watching me, and always sending me out into battle. I'm not a fighter like a knight, I'm a protector! I'm only 22, and I don't want to die fighting to hurt, I rather die to protect."
Allen takes all the Michael said in. Allen first thought was, "HE'S A YEAR OLDER THEN ME?!!" Before he started to speak his mind. "Sometimes we have to make the first move in order to protect others. Because if you choose to let evil run its course, then it might be too late to protect anyone. I didn't understand the training he was doing, but now I get it. The town you guys was in, it was destroyed by the demon dogs was it?"
Michael looks up at Allen and nodded. "Yeah! It was destroyed years ago and we only go there for training."
Allen closes his eyes and thinks back to his training as he speaks. "Sometimes we need something to motivate us to fight. When being challenged to a dual, wither intentional or not, you have to fight, if not then you're more than likely to lose it all. How can you protect anyone if you're dead? It's better to fight now so you won't regret it later on!"
Michael looks at Allen and his encouraging words and starts to think to himself.
After they have ate, the two walk into another building with a platform over a bottomless pit, connected to the main land with a bridge, inside a barrier. On the platform was crystal like tree and plants, but in the middle of them was a sword stabbed into the ground with light energy rising from it. Allen sees the blade and look around the chamber before asking, "Hey what is up with that sword?"
Michael looks at the blade and starts to speak. "That's Aeternam
. It is a sacred relic of the angels. In Latin it means 'Eternal'. The blade was made with frozen true silver and forged in heaven's forge of light that didn't use fire, but pure light. The blade is so pure that when evil dears try to use it, the blade will destroy them. It was said that the sword was used by one of the first archangels in the fight between Heaven and Hell before any mortal race came into existence. Now it rest here to waiting for someone who can wield it and be champion of the light, but so far not too many want to lift it as fame and glory is not part of the angels lives, but only a few has come in here to try to lift the sword for its resting place..."
Just then the chamber doors opened from the side of the chamber. It was Izen followed by a strange looking woman with brown hair; piercing green eyes and wearing a white top with a black skirt that when down to the shins and a black Kato mask on her face. Both Allen and Michael ducked and spy on Izen walking across the bridge and made his way to the sword. Izen tries to pull Aeternam from its rest spot but I won't budge.
"DAMN IT!!!" Izen cries. "Why can't I lift this sword? I am worthy of it! If hell rises again, then we will need this blade!" Izen give one last tug, but falls on his butt.
The woman approaches Izen and calms him down. "Shhh... don't worry... maybe your heart is just in the right place, perhaps in order to prove yourself to it you need to purge or cleanse more demons and sinners. Then only the blade would see your desires to wield it."
Izen stands up and gives an evil smile. "YES!!!! YOU’RE RIGHT!!! Prepare the ritual at once!" Both of them starts to walk off, Allen tries to use his aura sight on the woman, but just as he triggered it they were gone.
"Ritual? What ritual?" Allen said turning to Michael who was just as dumbfounded as Allen.
Allen and Michael started to head to Michael's room.
"Who was they woman?" Allen asks.
"That's Meg, the new head mother," Michael replied.
"New? What happen to the last one?" Allen asks.
Michael's face turns red. "S...s...she was caught... p..p..Pleasuring herself... then she went nuts and threw herself on to the other male angels. Strangely enough she was never like that, and the cause of her behavior is still a mystery."
Allen try to remain cool, but the whole topic made smile weirdly before laughing. "HAHAHAHA!!! Oh... I sorry... that just struck me funny... never thought a nun throwing herself on people would make me laugh at such."
They enter Michael's room, and just as Allen enters he tripped over something and screamed before hitting the floor, face first.
"OW!!!! What the..." Allen looked back to see a big tool box just laying there. Allen gets up to see many, many devices either half built or finished all over Michael's room. "Whoa! Your techie?" Allen asks as he starts to examine each device in the room.
"Well, the proper term is engineer, but that one way of saying that. I been building things and fixing them scene I was little." Michael starts to remove his armor.
"So you're a paladin and an engineer? That's very impressive," Allen said reach for a sphere like device. Michael grabs the device away from Allen in a panic.
"HEY DON'T MESS WITH THAT!!! It's a proto-type for something I like to call a black hole grenade."
Allen's face turns blue and slowly backs away from it. "B..b..b..BLACK HOLE!!! YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR MIND!!! Do you know what happens when you mess with black holes?"
Michael shushes Allen, "Shhh... You're going to wake everybody, besides it doesn't work, yet... I need a massive amount of dark and anti matter, then figure out how to close it with without going near it." Michael sits the grenade down, and continues to remove his armor, then asks "so... what are you out here for?"
Allen looks at Michael, and then closes his eyes looking away. "I guess you've earn my trust and I can call you a friend. See there is a great evil that destroyed my race, they go by many names; Old ones, evil ones, ancient ones, but they are commonly known as 'Old Gods'. After sometime I finished my demon hunter training, I wanted to live peacefully, but the echo of my people screams still fill my head. So I set out to destroy the Old Gods, however my mentor said that I'm not 'whole' so he told me to go seek the two sources that my powers came from, I am to meet with the phoenix god and the raven lord and gain their blessing, and only then I will be able to destroy the Old Gods. My first destination is the land of the garudas when I might be able to meet with the phoenix god. So that's my story in a nut shell."
Michael was speechless; he didn't know what to say. Then he finally spoke, "seems like you have a whole trip ahead of you... you know one of my main goals is to see the world, meet more people so I know who I am protecting."
"Why wait?" Allen asks as Michael look back at him. "We have a free will for a reason, besides it seem like you are depressed here..."
Michael looks down, "I can't! If I try and leave, then the hellgaurd will hunt me down, and mark me as a fallen angel."
Allen looks at Michael for a moment, and then says "Sometimes you have to take risks in order to be happy, I understand order and freedom... I'm not going to change your mind, however I can tell you think... do what believe is right, don't let others tell you who you are, or what you can do!"
Michael looks up, taking in Allen's words. But before Michael try to say something, there was a loud scream which startled them badly.
"What the hell was that?" Allen asks, grabbing his chest.
Luckily no other angel heard the screams as the two quickly run outside side and hide behind some arches. The scream came from two very attractive human girls in chains by a group of female angels along with Meg and Izen.
“YES! These sinners will do!” Izen said.
One of the girls cried, “W…w…w… What are you going to do to us?”
“Yeah! We haven’t done anything wrong! Let us go!” The other girl yelled.
“Silence!!! Both of you know what you have done to get here, and now we are going to purify both of you and your sins” Izen evilly smiles before laugh.
“Yes… both of you will do nicely… after all… we need cleanse you’re… ‘Desires’” Meg says give an evilly look at the girls.
The angels start to tug on the girls’ chains and start to pull them into a crystal building that looks like a church. Allen and Michael sneak up after them right before the door shut behind them. The angels brought the girls into the main chamber and hand cuffs both girls to a stone slab table and then they stand in line as Meg holds a black book and sits it on a podium and starts to read in a strange language. Allen and Michael climbed up a stair case to an overlook of the main chamber. Allen and Michael quietly crawl up to look at the room. As Meg reads, the angels start to remove their clothing and then started to rub all over the humans girls.
“What… What is this?!!!” Michael said blushing red and hiding his face.
“It’s called foreplay…”Allen said with distasteful expression. “And if I remember correctly, this is not how purifications go…”
“I..I..I… know…” Michael studded.
The angels then started to remove the girls’ clothes and continue rubbing them. The girls started to get heat flashes. Just then tentacles with eyes spawned from their vaginal area and approached them girls.
“What the hell is this?” Michael said
“Nothing good!” Allen said as he quickly looks over to Meg and triggers his aura sight. His eyes widen to what he saw, her aura was black. Allen then smiled before he spoke, “There’s no doubt about it, she is one of them… she is one of them! She is an Old God!”
Just before the angels were about to penetrate the girls, Allen jumps down and blasts each of the girls and then makes a gun with his right hand fingers and fires and red beam from them and destroys the book while also going through Meg’s chest. She drops limp on the wall behind her. Meanwhile Michael sneaks and unlocks the girls hands cuffs with his face just as red as a tomato.
“Thanks you!” Both girls said as they grabbed their clothes and run.
“WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!?” Izen yelled as he swoops down in front of them. “BOTH OF YOU HAVE RUINED EVERYTHING!!!”
“Sorry, but this place was ruined long before me and my good friend here showed up, Izen Ashbringer… You are serving an Old God and you must be along with her must be slain!”
Izen expression changed from anger to laughter. “So… you figured it out? Yes Nephilim, I am serving this old god, I give her pure souls of innocent females to her and in return she makes me stronger, more pure, and more worthy to wield Aeternam”
“Oh Izen… why don’t you tell them your shoe size while you’re at it hmmm?” Meg said getting back up, with the hole in her chest closing up with black tendrils. “Oh Nephilim… I’ve heard much about you. You’re desire is to kill me and my breather… I can see it in those red eyes.”
The other angels get up with a look of lust with the tentacles retracting back up into them. Allen draws his blades, Michael started to reach for his weapons but he just remembered that he left them in his room. The women started to say sexy remarks at them and rubbing themselves like a cat in heat.
”Come on men… both of you are too tense. Come have some pleasure, giving into your lust! Meg blurted out.
“Eat a dick! I’m a one woman man, BITCH!” Allen yelled while pointing his blade at her.
Meg just frond, “Mortals need pleasure to answer their lust and desire… All mortals should feel the moment between pain and pleasure. I AM MYNOGHRA: THE OLD GOD OF LUST!!!” She raises her hands in the air and the angels started to mutate and deform with spikes, eyes and tentacles rising from their bodies and their wings slowly started to rot.
“Michael! Run and get your weapons, I’ll hold them off! Allen says while staring at both Izen and Mynoghra.
“You sure?” Michael asks more scared than ever.
Two of the mutated angels block the door. Allen jumped into the air and puts his blades together. “DRILL RUN!!!” Allen starts spinning and runs through both of them clearing the path. “Don’t worry about me; I got a goal to achieve!” He turns to Michael smiling with a confident look.
Michael then runs out of the churches, Izen see him, but doesn’t mind. “He will get his yet! Focus on the Nephilim!” Izen commanded.
Michael ran as fast as he could back to the barracks, but then notes the building holding Aeternam. He enters and approaches the sword and the stares at it, think back to the one phrases that everyone said ‘how can you protected anyone if you’re dead?’ Michael starts to talk to the sword.
“Please… I need the power to protect the ones I love, I’ve I want to be able to save my family, the innocent, and the ones who I call my friends. I don’t want to be scared any more, and for the first time I saw the true face of evil. I don’t want to die by standing around, but at least I want to die by giving my life for them! Please!!!! Let me wield you!!!
Michael grabs the blade, but as soon as he touched it the sword flashed a bright light that covered the whole room.
Meanwhile Allen was starting to look beat while the deformed angels had only a few scratches.
“Damn it! How can I fight them without killing them?” He muttered to himself before yelling out “STOP HIDING BEHIND THOSE HOOKERS AND FIGHT ME LIKE THE BITCH YOU ARE!!!”
Mynoghra just laughs. “Oh please, I just want to see how you are going to stop me… I’m guessing you already know, this girls are under my power, but they can still be saved… I’m just seeing if your desire to end me is stronger enough. If so, then you would strike these women dead, if not then I wonder how much more you would last.”
Allen tries to charge at Mynoghra once more, but the angels blocked his path. Allen swings his blades and scratches them but two more rushed up behind him and knocked him to the ground.
“Give up nephilim! Just relaxes in pleasure!” One of the deformed angels said.
“Doing one of you will give me STDs” Allen said and he charges his energy about his body and the releases the energy in a minor explosion, knocking the women off him. He quickly gets and once more charges at Mynoghra, but Izen flew in front of him and draw his blade and the two starts to fight to the death. As they clash blades Allen cuts Izen’s arm. Izen jumps back and fires a holy blast as Allen see the attack and quickly tries to shield himself with his wings, but the blast knocks him back into the angels. The angels soon grabbed Allen once more, and hold him up to Izen, as he slowly walks towards Allen with his sword drawn and ready to thrust it through Allen’s heart.
“Stupid boy! If you had kill them you would never had been pin down like you…” Before Izen could finish he felt something, and his face turn anger as Allen smiled.”No… NO!!! SOMEONE HAS DRAWN THE SWORD!!! WHO!!!! WHO!!!! WHO!!!!”
Just then something strikes the angels and Allen goes free. The angels fall to the ground with the deformities fading off them and turning back to normal. Izen sees Michael with new crystal like armor and shield and wielding Aeternam.
“Thanks! I owe you one!” Allen said smiling.
“So… it did have the power of eternity! The only power to purge my powers.” Mynoghra said. “So much for Izen trying to corrupt it.”
“Hey… I want to face Izen… I want to show him how much stronger I have grown, thanks to you.” Michael says to Allen.
“ Fine by me!" Allen says with a smile.
Mynoghra looks at them with a glare. "I'm sorry Izen, but my job is done here."
Izen turns in anger. "What!? You can't leave I will get my hands on the sword! I will show you my power!"
Allen charges as Izen tries to stop, but Michael gets in between them and blocks the attack. Allen then runs around them and aims at Mynoghra. However she quickly bolts, with Allen in pursuit.
"YOUR WEAK... YOUR PETHETIC!!! YOU DON'T DESERVE TO WIELD AETERNAM!!!" Izen yells with an insane look.
"You was never good to begin with, you knock others down, you serve the old gods, and your harm the innocent for your own greed. YOUR THE WEAK AND PETHETIC ONE AROUND HERE!!!" Michael said with a bold look.
Then the two started to clash blades. As Izen strikes, Michael blocks and then strike, thrusting is blade into Izen's arm. Izen yelps in pain as he fires holy blasts one after another. Michael then forms a barrier around him and blocks the attack. Izen then rushes Michael and attacks over and over with each hit hitting harder than the last. Then Michael parry Izen's sword and then shield bashes him in the face, breaking his nose and knocking him to the floor. Izen slowly crawls up on all fours as blood drips from his face. Michael slowly comes in closer pointing his new blade at him as a way of telling him to surrender. Then Izen quickly gets up and sucker punches Michael in the stomach. Michael drops Aeternam and kneels in pain. Izen quickly grabs the blade and holds it up and starts laughing.
"YES!!! YES!!! FINALLY, I HAVE IT..." He says like a mad man. "I must admit, you gave me quite a fight, but your still not strong enough to beat me, now I'll shall give you a quick death, and as for your nephilim friend... oh... he will be kept alive for the old gods to... to..." Pain suddenly starts to fall upon Izen as the blade starts to turn his hand into ice. "WHAT!!! WHAT IS THIS!!!!" He screams.
Michael stands up with again with a bold look. "Aeternam can only be wield by someone with a pure heart. You are far beyond good. I knew you was going to do something to knock the weapon out of my hand. I wanted you to know where you and the sword stand... the sword hated you... every time you try to pull it from it rest place you grew more evil. You abandon God for your own ambitions, and became a puppet of the old gods. Now it's purging you.
With his whole arm turn to Ice he screams. "Mynoghra!!! HELP ME!!! I SERVED YOU!!! I DID EVERYTHING AS YOU ASKED!!! DON'T LEAVE ME!!!"
Just then Mynoghra whisper in Izen's mind, "Hmmm... when will your mortals learn? When you place Desire and greed over objects they will posses you. Till you become a object to you. I try to help you with your purity, but your own pride became your down fall... Even if you was able to grab the blade wait was you going to do with it? You would end up the same way no matter what... but with the blade destroyed so it wouldn't be used against us. Now you are just a crying man, when your pride is gone you are nothing more than a crying child, women are tougher... now my puppet... DIE IN ETERNAL DAMNATION!!!"
With tears and fear on his face, Izen tries to reach for his blade to cut off his hand but then soon his legs stop moving and became ice. Michael could only watch in horror as the ice starts to creep up his neck. Then the last of Izen scream stop as Izen whole body from head to toe was turn to ice.
Mynoghra still on the run enters the over view and see Izen's frozen body. Allen throws phoenix fires to try and stop her but she quickly dodges them. "You know Nephilim... if you have the desire to kill me then hit me with your best attack!"
Allen is starting to get annoyed. "What is up with her and desire, she says it all the time... Yeah I've got a desire to not hear you say desire!"
Mynoghra laugh at Allen's response. "Then make me... hit me!!!" Allen starts to think about it, knowing that if he gives in to her taunts then he could break a wall and she could get away. However Mynoghra taunts Allen once more. "If you had the desire, then hit me... unless your less of a man! *laughs* I bet you can't perform to save your race" Mynoghra just laughs hectically. That did it! Allen stops in a fury and charges his Ravenix Buster and fires it a full force.
Michael grabs Aeternam and ends up breaking Izen's hand off as the rest of the ice back cracks and brakes. Michael looks at the blade and can hear the blade's thoughts, but that was ended when a large blast could be heard above. Allen had blasted Mynoghra but also a massive hole. Mynoghra whose body was now in half started to fix its self and she quickly runs spreading upside down hand wings and she takes off into the sky.
"This is not the end Nephilim! I will make you know pleasure before never ending pain." Mynoghra yells and she flies off into the nights sky.
Alarms soon starts to ring, Allen stands there speechless before scream. "DAMN YOU OLD GODS!!! DAMN YOU ALL!!!"
Michael quickly runs up and grabs Allen saying, "We need to leave! If the hellguard see this then they think we are responsible and will kill us on sight!"
Allen wasn't think right, but his body move following Michael out of Manus Dei.
Hours have passed, the Hellguards examined the each detail of just what happen. The female angels that was possessed by Mynoghra's evil power, was back to normal and couldn't remember a thing. All the other angels could only point to Allen just being there, and the sword Aeternam had been compromised. Michael won't be labeled as a fallen again, but he along with Allen will be the hellguards targets to seek.
Meanwhile Allen and Michael walks through the woods and they talked.
"Your coming with me?" Allen answer Michael question.
"I got to now, nowhere else to go, and you have a goal to destroy the root of evil right? After see that and obtaining Aeternam, it speaks to me that I must help you out any way I can." Michael said smiling.
"In that case welcome aboard! It was getting boring being alone..."
The two walk off to the next chapter, talking about where to go next...
