The Next Morning

The smell of bacon cooking over a hot flame wafted through the air. "Rise and shine, sweethearts!" Abel shouted, loud enough to wake anyone that hadn't from the delicious scent of a hot breakfast. When the treasure-hunters stumbled out of their tents bleary-eyed, hungover, or well-rested, Abel served them a plate with a friendly smile. The treasure-hunters would be given time to eat their fill before being split into their pre-determined groups. Lagi, Merrze, and Bahir would be directed towards three pirates who were outfitted in gear suitable for a long hike. They each had a length of rope held at their waists, a shovel and pick strapped across their back expecting to dig, and an ornate vase slung over one shoulder.

The taller of the three pirates approached the treasure-hunters with a gruff tilt of his head, "Good morning, folks. The name's Dorian, this here is Chiggers and Giddy Lee. Guess you'll be the ones to watch our backs. You ready to uncover some treasure?" He pulled a folded sheaf of paper from his breast pocket, a copy of the map that had been made the night before. Dorian gestured to the red X with his pointer finger and ran it along the surrounding area. "Looks like we'll be traveling to the east through some hilly terrain. The legend of Gunner's treasure says that it's hidden in a cove, so we should keep the shore in sight as we travel, as much as we can."

He folded the paper up and put it back in his pocket after everyone had a chance to take a look at it, if they chose to. Dorian then adjusted his load and nodded to the treasure-hunters to lead the way. If Lagi suggested they use El Drago to fly to their destination, Dorian would hum to himself in thought before speaking up. "I've seen the way that dragon fights, he's ferocious. I'm sure he can carry all of us, but I would suggest conserving his strength for combat. I wouldn't want us to affect his maneuverability or get in the way if we ran into something." He wouldn't argue his point any further if Lagi preferred that the group flew to their destination instead of walked.

They would have to decide quick, however. With a loud groan, the island rumbled, awake once more. The crab-like creatures from the day before began surging out of the water along the beach. Madam Trixie quickly unsheathed her twin blades, running to the creatures. "GO NOW! We'll handle these bastards! Remember to hurry up, the fog closes tomorrow!"




Assuming the group did walk, they would begin their journey following the coastline to the east. The light glittered brilliantly off the crystal water of the bay to their left. They would travel for some time before Dorian noticed that the forest to their right had begun to slope upwards. He informed the group that it was time to start climbing to a higher elevation. The tree-covered canopy filtered out the sun, what little light escaped cast shadowy shapes between the trees.

A few hours of traveling up an incline in the dimly-lit jungle, the group finally came to a break in the trees. Lush green grasses covered the rolling hills and the trees grew sparse after several meters. The peak of a tall mountain loomed in the distance and if the treasure-hunters squinted their eyes, they could see black-specks circling it. Whatever the creatures were, they were too far away to pose a threat at the moment so Dorian suggested they continue on.

They climbed over a rise in the landscape and a sharp wind tugged on the group's clothing as it passed by. To the left, the group could see the lapping waters about an hour's walk away. Beyond that, they could see the impenetrable fog, a reminder that they were trapped on a dangerous island. Straight ahead, the ground sloped downward into a small valley with a river winding through it.

As they began to descend into the valley, the vegetation began to grew thicker with clumps of tall grass and waist-high shrubs. Just as they neared the river, the rustling of leaves could be heard to their left. Out of a thick clump of shrubs twenty meters away, came a pack of six Rhinejulah. The toughened grey hide of the beasts quivered, startled by the appearance of the group. They stomped their hooves and their mouths opened in three sections to let out a otherworldly howl. On either side of the beast's head, three tentacles protruded outward, writhing madly. The top pair of tentacles were fashioned with a stinger and were five meters long. The lower pairs were slightly smaller and served two functions--they were used to grip things like an extra hand and used to feel the environment with vibrations it emitted.

Two of the Rhinejulah burrowed into the earth, using their tentacles to push aside the dirt. They traveled four meters below the surface and then began burrowing towards the treasure-hunters. As they moved, the beasts emitted barely inaudible vibrations, just out of the range of human-hearing, to sense any movement above them. Once the burrowed Rhinejulah were underneath their prey, they would wait for an opportune time to strike.

Meanwhile, the other four Rhinejulah worked in unison to assault the group. Two of the Rhinejulah (A&B) moved forwards two meters and emitted a low-frequency screech, by sending tremors their lower pair of tentacles. The noise traveled in a wave that created a dull buzz, disorienting the balance of anyone it hit. Moving behind the wave, the other Rhinejulah (C&D) started running towards the treasure-hunters, looking to get within four meters of the closest targets.

Lagi woke up in the morning to the smell of Abel’s breakfast. Afterwards, he proceeded to munch down and feed some to El drago. Even though he was able to  eat to his fill. El dragon eating whatever is left over is as adequate as a little snack to the 10 meter dragon. “Well, it’s the thought that counts.” El drago would say a he gave an acknowledging nod to Abel to providing the breakfast. Lagi was excited about finding the treasure. “This is a good chance to try out that new move I practiced with Merrze.  Though, I don’t think she remembers it. “Lagi gave merrze a brief glance as he looked to her. ”Do you? I can dig the treasure up if  digging with shovels will take too long

Before Lagi could add a comment, El Drago retorted. “ The stamina of the humans pales in comparison to a dragons. I will take flight and bring you to the location. We save time and daylight, because fighting these creatures at night wouldn’t be the best for us. After gauging their strength, this is the best course of action. “ lagi disagreed. "We walk, save your energy, you are carrying all of the money back. "




El Drago took to the air again to see if he could find any sort of enemy combatants whatsoever.   However  Lagi knew better, something would always be there. He noticed a strange looking horse in the distance; it had some sort of tentacles. Just by looking at the creature Lagi had an idea as to how tough it would be.” Guys, look alive.  These creatures aren’t as tough as the ones from yesterday, I have a feeling. However, I also have a feeling about those tentacles on its face……”  El Drago remained on standby as Lagi took the initiative. The simple fact that the beings stepped forward and the  posture meant that they had every intent in protecting their home.

“On my mark…..” Lagi would say as he took the initiative and used Vertigo inducement to  Clash with the opposing sound wave with another so the rest of the group would be safe in engaging the enemy.  In the off chance that the screech ability was a  b rank move, the two screeches would be considered as an a rank and cancel out with the vertigo inducement.

While this was going on, El Drago traveled above towards the strange horses (A and B)  at 25 m/s and used Lightning net from 20 meters away that was 15 meters in length and width, travelling at 20 m/s to cover them both. It was a two pronged attack and Lagi and el drago was coordinating their attacks In order to make quick work of them.  The others were left to deal with C and D.

Merrze woke up and stretched glad that she had went to sleep early the night before. The redhead felt invigorated since she had wonderful nights rest. She decided it would be good to get herself nourishment so she joined the others for a quick meal. She didn't want to waste any time so she quickly ate her food. She shared some of the meal with her spiked canine to show her appreciation to him, She overhead Lagi's remark about the past training, it was awhile ago but Merrze remembered it well, mainly because it was the day she gave him her first kiss.

"Of course I remember the training, a lot happened that day so it's sort of hard to forget even if I wanted to."

She said this in a joking tone of course, after she finished her food she went to pack her stuff for the journey to come.




As they were walking Merrze saw something far ahead in the distance, it seemed to be a group of beasts. She drew her sword as they drew near. In this type of area her movement, and the others would most likely be restricted. She would be using Fluffy to fight these things at least for the time being. She had her spiky pet come close and prepared to attack at any moment, she had him use Roaring Inferno at beasts C&D, she angled it so that it would avoid her teammates attacks and possibly hit larger vegetation to fall and damage the creatures.

One thing that she was sure of was that the redheads enhanced hearing picked up something. There seemed to be creatures burrowing underground to head their way. She knew it was best to alert the other two just encase.

Bahir dreamed of strange things... they all tended to revolve around combat. Clearly the skirmishes the day before had him subconciously worried. Before he could deal the final blow in his dream, the creature turned into a slab of bacon, sizzling before him. This couldn't be an actual part of his dream... it didn't fit! The fanalis's eyes snapped open and he sat straight up in one fluid motion. He looked back and forth for the source of the heavenly smell and finally found it. A grin crossed his face as Abel served him and the other treasure hunters a plate and he savored the taste. With a sigh of relief, Bahir stood slowly, adjusting his dagger and sanjiegun.

Following Abel's directions, Bahir walked over to the group of three pirates who were tied together. The fanalis couldn't help but arch an eyebrow at the sight. The second thing that came to the spy's attention was the odd looking urns that were on each of the pirates' backs. Bahir listened to the taller pirate and nodded, committing their names to his memory. Hopefully things will go rather smoothly. When the pirate showed the map to the group, Bahir eyed it carefully. He wanted to make sure that he knew which way they were going and that they had to go. Suddenly, the taller pirate mentioned El Drago. Bahir blinked and looked up at the dragon. "I think he has a point. Drago is our ace in the hole. The less strain we are on him, the better." Just as the fanalis finished his statement, the island began to stir. Ah shit! Without a second thought, Bahir was moving along with the other pirates.




Bahir walked a little behind the group. Though he wasn't the strongest of the group, he was actually the weakest in his mind, he was one of the most attentive. It was how he made his living, after all. There wasn't much space between him and the others though, not even a meter. He listened as the treasure hunters and the pirates made a little small talk while scaling the hill. As the descended the large mound, Bahir was impressed that the pirates didn't seem winded. Perhaps they did this a lot more often than Bahir thought.

It didn't take long for things to start alerting the fanalis, though. There was a low rumbling sound that sounded like footsteps, large footsteps. The sound was accompanied by rustling leaves. Bahir turned his head to the left and started to focus in that direction, squinting his eyes to try and make out details of what was going on. It wasn't long before the red eyes peered through the shrubbery and saw the odd looking creatures. It didn't seem like the island was going to give them any more time to rest. The fanalis made his way to the three pirates, putting his hands on their shoulders. "You may want to get back a bit. Keep your ears peeled. You heard Merrze." The fanalis grabbed four of his throwing spikes and was ready to throw them at the creatures, but heard a faint buzzing sound that seemed to get louder. That can't be good. He thought to himself. He was glad to see that Lagi sent a soundwave to disrupt what came from the beasts. Bahir could no longer hear the buzzing.

He hoped that his teammates took his warning to heart and decided to move as well. Before he could actually think about them though, two of the other creatures had rushed the group. When they were close enough, the fanalis threw his four spikes, two at each of the creatures. He was careful not to hit any of his allies with his spikes, and hoped that they wouldn't move in the way.

A collision of sound rang out as the screech of the beasts and Lagi's spell clashed against each other. The scene grew chaotic as the treasure-hunters responded to the threat of the Rhinejulah. El Drago was already in the air and conjuring an electric net which ensnared two of the Rhinejulah (A&B) with a paralytic touch. The two tentacled-rhinos sent a sound-wave at the dragon to buffet his skin.

Meanwhile, two of the Rhinejulah(C&D) closed the distance with the group. When a fireball appeared in their path, the beasts emitted a sound-wave from their tentacles towards the object. Their attempt was useless, the fireball continued on its path towards them. One of the Rhinejulah(C) managed to parry it away, but the other(D) wasn't quick enough and burst into flames. With its friend dead, the Rhinejulah let out a Screech towards Merrze and Fluffy while it continued to run for them. Not even Bahir's daggers scratching his thick hide detered him from his course. Once it was within four meters of them, the beast would whip Fluffy.

During all the chaos above-ground, the two Rhinjulah(E&F) finally struck, bursting up from the ground. Rhinejulah(E) appeared a meter away from Lagi and whipped the man with sharp-tipped tentacles. Rhinejulah(F) made his entrance near Bahir, also using its tentacles to whip the Fanalis assassin.

El drago realistically had a bit of trouble with the actual fact that it was hard to see sound waves, especially if they were traveling in the air. Lucky for El drago. Travelling above didn’t mean that he stayed in one spot. With his superior speed and intellect, it was quite easy for El drago to simply drop off the net and pass by, out speeding their basic attacks from using their sound wave projectiles by simply flying alone. However, his dogfighting tactics by zooming across the battle field at high speed was a strategy that got even better with the fact that three limbs were immobilized due to the net. EL drago circled around at 25 m/s and right down his 10 meter hand damage on the two tentacle rhinos, the same as using it as a fly swatter for a rank damage at 25 m/s.




Lagi had his own problems, and was in the mood to conserve his energy and not waste too much magoi this time around. “The what are coming where?” The hell, was fanalis truly freaks of nature? Lagi didn’t hear much of anything underground, but they did say that the enemy was coming from below them. “Tch..” Lagi would suck his teeth as he used his bladed brooch in order to automatically clash with the whip as soon as it made a connection with Lagi’s body bu using full body blade. He used this time to pace himself and give him some room between himself and the beast. Afterwards, Orie would appear and enter the fray, poking out of lagi temporarily to fire off two blob bullets at 10 m/s towards the tentacle rhino that were 1 meter in size, which would of dealt b rank natural acidic damage and eat away at the rhino.

Bahir watched with satisfaction as one of the rhino type beasts were burned alive. Fluffy was pulling more than its weight and Bahir was truthfully glad that he could. However, one of the beasts began to charge and Bahir's spikes seemed to wear it down a little, but not enough to end its charge. He could only hope that the three pirates with them were staying out of the fray of battle. Yes he was there for Lagi and the treasure, but they were also there to protect the pirates. He had lost some already on the boats, he didn't want to lose more here.

Before he could worry about them much longer, the ground began to rumble a bit right behind him. The fanali, acting on his instincts, turned to face the direction of the sound and saw one of the rhino creatures looking at him. Fuck... He knew he didn't have time to move and avoid the attack so he figured he would face it head on! Bahir raised his left arm to take the brunt of the attack, using his right hand to support it. The tentacle hit his arm hard, but the assassin's mind was almost as quick as his body. His arm snapped from its defensive position to wrap firmly around the tentacle, holding the creature in place. The fanalis emitted a sound akin to that of a lion's roar as he brought his left foot around in a roundhouse, aiming to crush the creatures skull.

Merrze was glad that she had managed to take one of them out, now she had to take out the one that was left and assist her teammates if they still needed it. First in order to counter the screech that was coming her way the redhead decided to reciprocate and use her own shout to counter it. The redhead sent a Fanalis Shout to clash with the screech which would hopefully stop it. Then to clash with the whip that was going after Fluffy she had him use Roaring Inferno to hit it and hopefully do damage to the beast that was using it.

She had hoped that this plan would work, she was prepared to have Fluffy attack it again if she had too, encase her attack didn't kill it she would have her spiked pet charge at it then have it manipulate it's tongue and lash it. This was of course only her back up plan if the fireball didn't kill it but it most likely would, the redhead just liked being cautious for now.

The Rhinejulah's(A&B) screeches aimed at El Drago fell on deaf ears, rather no ears at all. By the time they reached where the dragon had been moments before, he had descended from the sky to smack the beasts into the dirt. The dragon's heavy-handed tactics proved too much for the Rhinejulah, flattening them within a small crater.

Meanwhile, the Rhinejulah's(C) screech clashed with Merrze's Fanalis shout. Weakened, the screech continued on to strike Merrze, which would cause a dull buzz to flood her hearing, disorienting her. Thankfully, Fluffy had fired a fireball from its mouth which protected him from the soundwave and it traveled further to clash against the Rhino-creature's whip. Fluffy then finished off the creature with a lashing from its long tongue.

The Rhinjulah(E) that appeared at Lagi's feet was blocked by his razor-sharp body. It aimed a tentacle to smack the Dragon Emperor but a blob fired from the man's body ate through the tendril and sprayed against its face. While the creature's face melted, another blob was fired off for good measure, defeating it.

The only Rhinejulah left alive managed to score a hit on Bahir, but the Fanalis used that to grab a hold of it. With the creature seemingly held in place, the Fanalis assassin sent a roundhouse kick at its head. However, the beast had more than one tentacle. Using one of its tentacles, the creature parried the kick away from it and whipped Bahir with another.

The fanalis could feel the tentacle make contact with his foot. He narrowed his eyes as his right hand slid from the grabbed tentacle to his sanjiegun. As his foot was pushed out of the way, he unfolded one of the parts of his triple stick. When he saw another tentacle coming for him, the fanalis began to use his stick spin, deflecting the oncoming tentacle. Don't get angry.. don't get angry... The mantra chanted in the back of the red head's mind as he gripped the sanjiegun, using his round about bop immediately from the spin. There was nothing else that existed in the area in the fanalis mind aside from him and his opponent at the moment.

Lagi would make a small grunt as he looked around. “Well that was an inconvenient little showdown. “ Lagi would say as he kneeled down and examined the creatures that laid before them. “However, this is still meant that we can eat for the night if we need to set up camp for any kind of reason. What do you guys think about that? “

El Drago watched carefully as Bahir did battle with eh creature Ready to hump in at any given notice to make sure that the kings Right guard wasn’t killed in action. “ I don’t think setting up camp would be wiser without the forest. How much of the herbs do you have left anyway? Save them, and lets keep moving.”

The redhead was slightly disoriented at the moment but she would be back on her feet at any moment. She tried to stay focused while listening to her comrades. The beasts were most likely finished so they could continue their journey. Her ears were ringing but she could vaguely hear what the king and El Drago were talking about. She thought that they should continue, they needed to cover as much ground as possible and get off the island today if it was possible. In her opinion this was the best scenario.

"I agree with El Drago Lagi, it would be best if we continued travelling, after all I don't think any one of us wants to stay on this island longer than we need to be."

She wanted to be cautious, there wasn't much for them to do since they were getting the treasure so she wanted to get her job done with as soon as possible.

During the fighting, Dorian and his cohorts had stayed back, giving the treasure hunters room to maneuver while hoping to avoid being attacked themselves. Now that it was over, Dorian approached Bahir and rested his free hand on the man's shoulder, adjusting the weight of the ornate vase. "Thanks for keeping an eye on us when the beasts showed up. Good to know someone doesn't think we're expendable." He gave a soft chuckle as he turned to the others in the group.  

It appeared that there was a debate of whether they should continue on or camp for the night. He cleared his throat to throw his two cents in. "If we sit around, there is a higher chance of more of those beasts coming to us, I would think. Be better if we continue on. Plus, you heard the Pirate Queen, the entrance to this bloody island closes tomorrow."

Hoping that was enough to inspire the others to continue moving, Dorian checked the map before pointing them ahead. Once they continued traveling again, the rolling green landscapes would soon fade. The ground grew barren as the earth became rugged and rocky formations grew more prevalent. Some of the jagged spires or eroded mountain slopes would appear to be in the shape of creatures out of the corner of an eye, but on closer inspection, the likeness would vanish. The group would travel over the harsh terrain for a few hours, during which Dorian would speak with the treasure-hunters, engaging in mostly small talk to fill in any bouts of silence.

"As much as I hate this island, I'm excited to find Gunner's treasure. As a lad, the pirates used to tell the tales of him and his crew. I always thought it was a load of crap. Men always have big dreams, it is a way to keep yourself sane spending so much time on the open sea. Now, that I've seen this island though, I believe the legends." Removing a water skin from his pouch, Dorian took a quick drink before continuing. "It was said that Gunner traveled the world seeking wealth, power, and knowledge of the past. Unlike most pirates, it wasn't for greed, but to acquire a fleet strong enough to bring peace to the seas. During his time, there were constant wars between countries and even fighting between the different pirate clans. He wanted to get rid of that, wanted to see the world grow and prosper."

"During his travels, it was said that he became more than a normal man. The tales of his aim are extraordinary, able to hit a fly resting on the crow's nest of a ship a hundred meters away in one try. Some say he was even able to just look at a charging beast and bring it to its knees, obeying his every command. Of course, these are just stories passed down over the generations." Dorian shrugged and glanced out into the horizon, "I guess that's why Madam Trixie has so many of us willing to go to the depths of hell at her side. We see the old tales of Gunner in her. For many of us, she took us in after a lifetime of crime and making others suffer, gave us a chance to do something good in this world. Of course we haven't been able to do much since the fleet was decimated. I bet you wouldn't believe that at one point the Pirate Queen commanded a fleet of a thousand ships and well over ten thousand men."

Dorian sighed, lapsing into silence as he recalled a distant memory of a grander time for his Queen. When he looked back up, something caught his eye just over the ridge. "What's that?!"

Switching his pace from a walk into a run, Dorian headed to the edge of the cliff they had been walking along. To one side, the group could see the coast and beyond that, the fog that surrounded the island. Below them, a raging river released into the sea, spawned by a great waterfall to their left. However, that was not what had caught Dorian's attention. Next to the waterfall was a small town, carved into the side of a mountain. At the top, it looked like several of the wooden buildings had been built from parts scavenged by old ships. Leading down the mountain was a rickety bridge, sections of which looked to be in disrepair. At the base of the mountain, hardly visible behind the overgrown brush, was a cavern five meters wide and just as tall.

About fifty meters away was a rope bridge that stretched over the waterfall and led into the town. There was also a narrow slope nearby, at the edge of the cliff, that led down to the base of the mountain. The group had a few choices on how to proceed. Either they could stay together, in which case they could chose to visit the town or the cavern, or they could split up and explore both at once. While they decided, Dorian and his cohorts waited anxiously, ready to find the treasure.

“Well, by unanimous decision, we are to keep it moving if we want to make our exit by tomorrow. “ Lagi shrugged, he kind of enjoyed the feeling that the island brought. “You know, after you react a certan level of strength, I feel as if a place like this is the only place you can live, you know? Lagi would say out loud for people to speculate, but El Drago was a bit confused. “What do you mean?  “ Lagi would then bring up his coliseum match. “Like Decius the immortal, his reason for only fighting people of a specific win record only people who could give him the fight he wants, to find meaning in his life. To live in such a way, and then die. But is that it?  That’s his answer?” Lagi shook his head. “ At the age of nineteen, I’m already searching for it. The corps, my clan, ruling the country. I seem to have my hand in everything, and yet I still feel like I’m looking for something. Maybe that’s why I came. “ Lagi was lost in his thoughts, but El Drago let him be.




The stories of gunner was something to behold, it made Lagi smile a bit.” Oh, he must of had a hawk’s eye. Maybe it was a magic tool? A combination of a magic weapons? Or maybe it was a dungeon beat transformation that gave him  inhuman marksmanship? You now, I used to take up archery myself, this bow isn’t for show.” Lagi would say as he waved his angelic bow around a little.





“They arrived at a crossroads and had to decide on a few things. “ We would be able to cover more ground if we split up.  Treasure is most likely in caves; it can also be hidden in the town. IT’s a 50/50 chance, but caves are practical. Though, who the hell can host a village on such a dangerous I’m curious to find out what there.   The village for me…… “ Lagi would fold his arms and think it over.” But if you think we should stick together, we should all head to the village for a quick sweep before going into to have.  Though, wouldn’t it be a bitch if the villagers too the boats while we moved around this area?  If there were any…“

Bahir watched as the beast went down and walked over towards the group of people. Now that his adrenaline rush had ended, the stinging pain in his left arm became a bit more prevalent. That tentacle left a rather large bruise along his arm. The assassin tried his best not to let the pain show, however. What was most important was their successful dig. As Bahir reached the others, Dorian came up and thanked him. The fanalis looked at the man blankly before flashing him a smile and a nod, acknowledging the thanks.

It wasn't long before Bahir could catch up to the conversation he had missed. Should they move forward or not? The answer was obvious that they should and the others seemed to agree, so Bahir didn't feel the need to give his piece. Bahir rather enjoyed their trek. Despite how long it took. What interested him the most, was Dorian's story of Gunner. Gunner is the name of this pirate, eh? Hm... why would he come to a place like this then? Tell us Dorian... Bahir's thoughts were running rampant. Unfortunately, the man's story ended with an explanaition of Gunner's marksmanship. That seemed to spark interest from the Dragon Emperor. Bahir chuckled at Lagi's interest in that particular portion of the story. "Gunner seemed to be a magnificent man. If he searched for all of those things... why did he come here? What happened to him? Do you know? Did he die on this island as well?" The fanalis's voice may have been subtle, but the tone behind his words was as direct as any leader. The spy had many questions, and he hoped that there was a chance that any information Dorian had about Gunner would help them. Not just the common knowledge of his prowess, but the folklore that only men of the sea would know.

The sudden stop and note of the city confused Bahir. Just as Lagi voiced, Bahir contemplated on what kind of people would be able to settle in this kind of place. There was also a cavern that was at the base of the mountain. Bahir's eyes, however, continued towards the buildings that seemed to be made of wreckage. Ships... I... I don't know if that's a good sign or bad... Either the inhabitants of this town can be people who managed to survive somehow and give up on leaving... or... The fanalis ceased his thoughts. Thinking that these creatures were acting under a centralized thought truly frightened him. He shook his fear away for a moment to return to the group and listen to Lagi's options. Split up or explore together... Dammit. He thought to himself and then to the pirates.

[color=blue]"I... I don't know. We got lucky splitting up earlier. Who knows what those creatures would've done if there wasn't a group still on the boats. His thoughts flashed back to that event. How he almost lost his life. No. Now wasn't the time to feel down on himself. "Perhaps we should split, but we need to do so carefully and plan for an attack in both areas. We also have the safety of Dorian, Chiggers, and Giddy Lee to think about. Lagi, its safe to say that you and El Drago are the strongest one's here, I think it would be in our best interest to split you two up. I know its difficult to keep separating you two, but I'm thinking of our survival and if there are human inhabitants there, El Drago may frighten them. They may think he's a new creature from this island. So Lagi will head into the town to acquire information and El Drago will check out the caves. I feel I can provide adequate to either of you. Merrze, where will you and Fluffy go? I will take the opposite." Even though the assassin didn't speak much, he seemed to unleash a mouthful on the group. He hoped that he didn't give them too much information to process at once, but these were things he wanted them to take into consideration as well.

She listened to what Lagi had said and agreed somewhat , after their intense battle with those monsters and such she felt like she sort of understood what he meant. She wasn't anywhere near their strength but when you became powerful with no goal what else is there to do besides surround yourself with danger looking for that day when you find someone stronger than you. The fiery redhead did't want to lose any battles so she could accomplish her goal but she truly felt like she understood what Lagi was saying.

"That makes a good amount of sense actually when you become strong and you have no challenge life or no goal lie seems to lose it's purpose. Without struggle I don't know if people would be able to live, since it's what makes us strive for our foals and hope for a better future. No matter how strong we become we all try to find a purpose in this world and when you can't find one because your the strongest what else is there to do besides to do continue fighting until you find a purpose or someone stronger comes along"




Merrze was interested by what type of man Gunner was, by the words that were spoken and the tales that were spun about this pirate. She wasn't sure how many of them were actually true but they were interesting nonetheless, such legends were told all across the world but the interesting thought about them is if they were actually real. The redhead wondered how much of the stories surrounding this man were true and how many were simple myths. She didn't feel like pestering the pirates with such questions since there was a chance that they might believe these stories by heart or that they mean a lot to their way of life since they were risking their lives to find Gunners treasure.

When they reached the town Merrze was rather amazed by it, she didn't expect to see anything like this on a island this far away from people but then again in this world anything was possible after all. When they talked about how they would proceed from this moment onward the fanalis thought about the enigma at hand, there were many variables that had to be taken into consideration so she wanted to be careful. One important was the size of the cave, there was a chance that El Drago might not fit through it which would be a hassle, but he of course couldn't go into town either so that caused a problem.

"I myself would prefer to go into the town but unless El Drago can fit into the cave this is what I think would be the best strategy. Bahir is the most conspicuous and stealthy so I think he should go into town, if anything bad happens he can make his way out of there with ease. Me and Lagi along with Fluffy should go into the cave since there will most likely be more troubles in there and would require more fire power. El Drago should stay here, if anything happened to Bahir he could rescue him, or we can do the reverse were I go into town with Fluffy since he's not that large and Bahir and Lagi would venture into the cave."

“now now, I am your king, and I’ll make the most reasonable decision. “Lagi would say as he did a hand gesture to hush them up a bit. “Alright, I decided. El drago, you should stay outside of the town and keep watch of anything suspicious, Bahir can do some Recon and find out what’s there, in and out. Merrze hit it right on the nail, he would be best for it. “Lagi would then look to bahir and his injury. “ Wrap that up with some antibiotic herbs before you go on. We don’t know what sort of diseases that could be lingering in the beast that we fought, I wouldn’t want it to get infected. If you would rather a quick heal , say the word, I’ll give you one. ‘Lagi would then look at Merrze.” I’ll head on to the caves with merrze. The caves are most likely going to involve enemies, the higher risk should be with the capable fighters for the time being. “

El Drago nodded his head and also looked to bahir.” Any signature signal I need to look out for if you need help?”

In the meantime, Lagi looked towards Dorian. “Are you ok with this plan?”

After Dorian had finished telling his story about Gunner, he was a bit surprised at the amount of questions about the legendary pirate. He shrugged when Lagi gave a list of possibilities that explained how Gunner had obtained his unnaturally accurate aim. "I wouldn't have any idea about all that. If it had something to do with magic, I wonder why no other magician has been able to replicate it since then."

Dorian's attention shifted to Bahir and he let out a chuckle at the Fanalis' curiosity. He gestured around him before he answered the first question, "I imagine he came to the island because it's the most secure place to hide treasure." He paused, his expression thoughtful, as he pondered on how to answer Bahir's next questions. "No, he didn't die on the island. The legends say that he died sometime after uniting most of the pirate clans and creating a navy that was a force to reckoned with. With a large fleet behind him, he was able to enter politics and start working towards unifying the world under a peaceful banner."

He shook his head, "A small kingdom, one that would grow to become the Reim empire many years later, agreed to assist Gunner with his ideals. The King arranged a political marriage, offering his daughter's hand to Gunner. The marriage would have granted the pirate the title of a Prince, allowing him to treaty with other countries in an official capacity. However, on his wedding night, Gunner was stabbed in the back by his bride and so ends the legend. For a man who valued honesty, it was a slap in the face to die by such a deceitful tactic."

Once Dorian finished his tale, the trio of adventurers started debating on how they should proceed. It was clear they wanted to split up, exploring the town and cave at once, but they didn't know who should go where. A moment before Dorian made the choice for them, the group came to a decision. The pirate arched a brow at Lagi's comment, 'The man is a King?'

Dorian nodded, "Your idea sounds logical to me. I'll go with Bahir into the town while Chiggers and Giddy Lee follow you two."




Dorian followed behind Bahir as they crossed the rickety bridge that led into town. Unsure of what they would find, the pirate made sure to stay quiet and use stealth in their approach, listening to any of Bahir's instructions. While Dorian knew how to fight, he was overloaded with gear and couldn't move efficiently. Plus, Bahir had proven his skill in combat, even if Merrze and Lagi had shown themselves to be stronger. Bahir had expressed the most concern for the lives of the pirates as well.

The first building they came to had blood streaked across the front of it. If they opened the door, they would find more gore splattered across the rooms. There were shards of broken furniture and crates everywhere. They would soon learn that the carnage wasn't limited to just that building, however. Throughout the town there were signs of a massacre, but the bodies of the townspeople would not be found. Throughout the homes and various buildings a collection of jewelry, golden coins from civilizations past, and weapons could be found. As they passed through the buildings, Dorian snatched up anything of value that he saw. He slipped them into the ornate vase he carried, where they vanished no matter how large the object.

The last home they searched, Dorian was looking through some rubble when he came across an interesting weapon. The quality of the sword was higher than the others they had found so far. Looking to Bahir, Dorian held out the black and green blade for the Fanalis to look over, a small 'stinger' hanging from end of a long chain connected to the sword's hilt. "I know Captain Grimwald said to collect all the valuables up and split it up later, but I think you should hold on to this. You may need it later." If Bahir accepted the blade and examined it carefully, he would notice a magical circle engraved on the grip.

*This does not take up any of your item/weapon slots

With the town searched and nothing else of note, Dorian turned to Bahir with a bored look. "Guess we should go into the cave and see if they found anything."




Chiggers and Giddy Lee followed behind Lagi, Merrze, and her beast, Fluffy, as the group cautiously descended down a narrow slope to the base of the mountain. The waterfall roared as it filled the riverbank with a flood of water which coursed its way out to sea. A swaying rope bridge hung over the river, allowing the group to cross to the other side where the entrance to the cave could be found.

Beyond the cave's gaping mouth, only darkness could be seen. Noting that fact, Chiggers withdrew a torch from his sack, one end of the stick was wrapped in a cloth damp with alcohol. He produced a piece of flint and struck it upon some stone to catch the cloth on fire. Chiggers held out the torch in the direction of Lagi and Merrze. "One of you lead the way. We'll be right behind you."

Entering the cave, the first thing that was apparent, besides the endless darkness, was an acute smell of sulfur in the air. A little bit into the cave, the group would notice etchings into the stone walls. The drawings depicted various wild creatures, buildings designed with an otherworldly architecture, and magical runes. The information contained in the etchings had value to a magician or someone knowledgeable with ancient lore. Unfortunately, the members of the group did not posses the required skills to obtain it. Lagi however, would be able to examine the etchings depicting the animals to determine that most of them were rare beasts, having heard stories of them as a child growing up with the El Nagi.

They would travel for what would seem like hours before they heard something, further down the cave, rumble. The walls of the cave shuddered as it echoed past them and some debris rained down from the ceiling above. If the group continued on, they would notice bright flames in the distance, illuminating the darkness. No longer needing the torch, Chiggers signaled to Lagi to snuff the flames.

A sudden wave of heat would hit the treasure-hunters as they drew closer to the light. The cave came to an end at a sheer cliff that dropped off into an expansive cavern. One false move and the group would tumble into a pool of lava below them. A hundred meters away, the cave continued, as if something had carved out a giant chunk of the cave to build the cavern. It would appear that the journey they had made thus far was for naught, the path ahead was impossible to cross.

Just as they would give up hope, a roar erupted from the lava and a twenty meter tall beast rose from its depths. The giant three-headed hound shook its flaming body and sniffed the air before its heads settled on the group at the edge of the cliff. The Cerberus leaned closer as its stomach grumbled hungrily. "Who has disturbed my slumber? Hmm...humans? I quite enjoy the taste of humans."

Shrouded Isle: Gunning for Treasure [Event/Kill Viable] YNwhKkb

One of the beast's heads darted to Merrze and sniffed her warily, "A red lion, too? I haven't seen one of you in many years." The Cerberus' middle head yawned, letting out a gout of flame and looked back to the treasure-seekers. "I haven't seen many people in quite some years actually. No matter, you are here now and you must be tested if you are to go any further."

The Cerberus' right head turned to gesture towards the other side of the cavern, "Down that path one can discover knowledge of the old world and vast riches. However, knowledge and wealth are not for everyone. Why should I let you pass over the others who have come to visit? You shall be tested the same as every man has before you. I shall ask you a question and I will judge the weight of your soul by your answer. As my master used to tell me, 'Words are wind and there is wind a plenty on the open sea.' All you have for me are words, but I have learned to see beyond them to the truth of the man underneath. Think carefully before you speak, for if you answer wrong, you will never leave this cavern again."

The Cerberus waited for his words to sink in before continuing. He would not hesitate to destroy the treasure-hunters and pirates, as he had been instructed to guard the treasure with a purpose. "Imagine that you are the ruler of a once powerful Kingdom. For many years the kingdom's coffers slowly dwindled and now they have run dry. You have sold off what possessions you own to keep the inevitable at bay, but soon you will have nothing left. A terrible storm ravaged the crops and what remains is barely enough to feed the citizens of your kingdom. One day, a man arrives at your gates and offers you a solution. The man offers to provide you enough money to bring the kingdom back on its feet and food to sustain the kingdom until the next harvest. However, you have to allow some of his people to settle in your kingdom and sell the citizens as slaves to them. The man is not heartless, though. While they won't earn wages as slaves, the citizens will be cared for and the kingdom can buy them back when it gets the money. What do you do?"

El Drago waited around outside of the city, he was rather focused oon the area and looked around for any suspicious activity. “Nothing yet….” El drago would say as he stretched his wings and did a small yawn. He waited patiently for bahir and Dorian to return.

“Legends suck……” Lagi would say as he picked a nearby pebble. “I can’t believe Gunner died in such a messed up way. It could of even been me. “ Lagi wasn’t too thrilled, so he used Merrze to cheer him up. “ Hey Merrze, was you ever expecting for us to be on such a dangerous island together? Whose watching Ku right now? “ Lagi patted fluffy on the head briefly as a show of affection. He really wanted to say something perverted to merrze, simply because he was in the mood strangely, but Lagi held off on it. When Chigger held out the torch, Lagi took it from him. “I’ll do it, no problem.” Though, Lagi gawked at the stone walls. It wasn’t so much the pictures of the runes and the buildings, but the animals. “These things are amazing!! I never seen anything like it, I would definitely record it in my book if I was able to see such a creature n person oooh shit. We killed the Tentacle creatures kind of fast, I wanted to study them…guess we don’t have that kind of time. Though, these creatures are Zyacks. Look at the form; they look like weapons don’t they?”

Lagi looked at the painting some more. “There is a story I have for you guys as well, it stars the king of Legends. It seems as if there was a man that was capable in mastering any animal, his first beast was a Zyack that served as his sword and shield at once. It was a legend killer, its head was a blade and it's waist was a shield its handle served as a hand and contained one single eye. Much like the eye of a djinn but not of the same origin. It went by many names in history, the kings shield, and the sacred sword, They were all Zyack’s, the only creatures that I know of that was able to evolve into a status of a legend beast. A beast that has earned that right through growth alone……..it represented royalty among creatures themselves. “ Afterwards, Lagi continued walking.




Lagi put out the torch when they didn’t need it, and the heat wave alarmed Lagi greatly. Why was it so hot in here?” Fluffy, close your mouth. “ Lagi automatically blamed the fire breathing dog, but it wasn’t him. The beast that he saw made Lagi stop dead in his tracks. He could tell, its intelligence, his advanced sight with animals when it comes to a taming or breaking point. “This is a legend beast. The Cerberus, said to be a creature that guards the gates of hell. The creature spoke, and it called Merrze a red lion. “ Red lion? Merrze?” He was confused, but maintained focus as the wise creature spoke. Though, the chance of Merrze being a furry arous-“ Not now!” Lagi continued to maintain focus, somewhat.




There seemed to be a test, failing to answer means death for them. “I’ll give my answer first then, they can go after.” Lagi have merrze and the pirates a nod of hope as he stepped forward. “I’m going to answer this in the case of using my own power and influence as to who I am. First of all, I decline. I will never agree to sacrificing the human rights of my citizens under any sort of situation. The act of owning a human being is something that they should never adopt as a culture. If that is a deal breaker, I will search for another way. Considering that I will be who I am and have what have access to what I have, I would have already established a relationship with farms outside of the country. I also have special stables and holding cells for animals, two special groups of animals called the pentax and the boufer cows. The pentax produce seeds from the fruits or vegetable that they eat. The boufer cows produce a miracle fertilizer that mas any terrain sustainable for life. Any personal harvest from my clan received from self gains or as a form of accumulated interest from the farms will be distributed among the people until the next gravest, which will even double with my personal efforts and the efforts of others who stand with me.”

Lagi was quiet for a moment and then continued. “I will act, I will move, I am no ruler that sits on his ass. I will find the solutions to my problems that I should have been better prepared for. I will not surrender my people for such a solution. I will not put the city in debt for a solution, even if temporary. I know how these “Contracts” work, kindness is a ruse at time, a savior appears in your time of need, knowing you will take it in an act of desperation to manipulate you afterwards. Like you said, words are wind, but a typhoon of change will appear diligently and progressively soon as I step off my throne. “Lagi then looked at the Cerberus in the eyes.” And I always have…..i always will.” This was Lagi's answer, and the others might of got a taste of his true feelings as well.

Merrze was intrigued by the depictions on the wall, they were very interesting, she didn't understand what most of them meant but she saw pictures of all sorts of things, a few images caught her attention but she continued to follow the group like she was supposed to. She was up for some idle chit chat so she would talk to Lagi and the others if she had a reason too, of course Lagi was one to initiate a conversation and the fanalis had no intention of ignoring the man, in fact it was a good way to pass the time as they traveled.

"Well I didn't expect this to happen honestly but I can't say that I have any problems with it. Also Ku is being watched by a close friend of mine at the moment, it's the lady who runs the inn I live at. I feel bad with troubling her a lot so I planned to look for a place to buy for when I need it."

She had no embarrassment at the moment being with the King but then again she had been learning to control her emotions more so such might have been subsiding those feelings subconsciously so that she could stay professional as they were on this crucial job, she would have to keep her cool at all times on the off chance that something bad would happen, and on this island complications appeared around every corner like it's nothing.

The talk about the beasts was rather interesting, while she enjoyed her pet she didn't see herself as it's master. She saw herself as the spiked canine's caretaker and companion. Fluffy was more than just a pet he was like a family member to her, nonetheless she was intrigued about the people of old and their beasts through Lagi's story. She had nothing like that she could share and it made her sort of jealous that she had no knowledge of interesting things like that, but the girl digressed and just paid attention to the beast tamer's words.




Merrze was surprised by the sudden heat of the room, but what surprised her the most was the beast that appeared before them. While she glared at it examining it Fluffy gave a bark at Lagi for the comment about his mouth. She didn't have an eye for beasts like Lagi she just felt similar to them but she could still tell this creatures prowess just by looking at, it gave off an aura of power it seemed. She was interested into the things that he said, so interested that her lion tail came out from her clothes and moved around.

"Well I may be called the lioness and have this tail but by the way you refer to me I assume that you can tell that I am a fanalis. That's just what I guess based on how you worded it."




The redhead didn't have to think hard about his question, for her it was a simple answer because of her experiences, she could lie and give the creature the answer he might be looking for but Merrze didn't want to take that chance and more importantly she thought it was best for her to tell the truth.

"I have very little experience being a leader myself, but I know what my answer is. I may not know much about leading people and this is all hypothetical but my choice is the same hypothetical or not. I would not accept this mans deal, since I would be leader of that country it would be duty to provide them with food and make sure they had good lives but it's not my choice to take away their freedom. No man has the right to own one another kind or not, taking away their freedoms like that for food is a temporary solution. The man could be lying to get what he wants so my people can be enslaved, it may seem stupid to pass up this opportunity for my people to get more food and save my country but who am I to take away their freedoms. I exist to protect my people, my job is to make the country the best I can for the sake of the people."

Merrze takes a breath and looks at the creature with eyes of seriousness and continued to speak letting her thoughts pour out like a waterfall.

"Taking away that would be betraying their trust, something I could never do or I would be considered a failure as a leader. I don't have the skills like Lagi nor the resources but I would do my best to save the kingdom without selling away my people. I would search to the ends of the earth to find other means. I will use all of my resources and the knowledge at my hand, I will hire magicians for help, I'll work for the money and push my body to the limits until I can find a solution. I would not let my people feel the pain of having their freedoms taken away. If I have to I will throw away my own freedoms for the sake of them, as long as the people can live safe and happy that's all that matters to me. If I can't bring my people the happiness and lives they deserve or at least try until I can try no more what type of leader would I be."

She finished taking, if she had to fight then she would fight this creature. She gave her honest answer on how she felt and what she would, she might have started to sound slightly angry because of her serious and commanding tone but she regretted none of what she said. She would not lie and throw away how she felt about something so serious, but hopefully it was a sufficient answer.

Bahir stood there as the two continued on. It seemed like his ideas weren't even considered by the two. Was he that insignificant to them? Just because of his lack of power? Bahir didn't let his thoughts show on his face. Instead, he nodded as Lagi gave his 'order.' Bahir, the dutiful servant. "As you wish." The spy looked to El Drago as he thought on the creature's question. Was there anything that Bahir could do that would let the dragon know of any trouble? After a moment of thought he shook his head slowly. "I have nothing that would be able to grab your attention, Drago. I'm trusting you to use your best judgement." The fanalis smiled at the dragon before moving a bit closer to Dorian. The man had volunteered to go with him. Hm? That's interesting. Alright, then.

Bahir led Dorian across the bridge and into the village. The fanalis narrowed his eyes and kept his ears alert, looking for any sign of life or hostility. He was a bit worried when there wasn't much that came back to him. My senses aren't failing me... are they? He questioned for a moment as he checked the first house for any creatures before allowing Dorian to slide passed him and obtain any valuables. While Dorian scavenged the building, the fanalis couldn't help but marvel at the blood-soaked walls. What the hell happened here... This was both a familiar, yet foreign sight to the fanalis. Familiar in that his days of killing, but... he wasn't sure who or what was killed here.

As they continued through the town, Bahir noticed a trend: death, but no bodies. The fanalis couldn't help but speak to Dorian. Mostly to try and quiet the rapid thoughts in his head. "We haven't seen a single body... Do you think they're being eaten? No... even if the creatures were devouring people, we would find bones right? What do you think is happening?" The fanalis continue to muse as the pirate worked. It wasn't long before another strange thing finally caught up with him. Dorian's vase. Bahir watched it carefully as Dorian stuffed more into it. No matter how much went into it, it never filled. Wha... Nothing makes sense on this island... He thought as he looked for any clue as to what was going on with the vase.

Before he could comment on it, Dorian handed Bahir an oddly fashioned sword. The fanalis caught the weapon and inspected it. Wow... its beautiful... He thought to himself. He gave the weapon a few experimental swings and realized that seemed to be a mere tail was also a blade. "Amazing. You have a good idea for these things." He smiled to the man and held onto the blade, carrying it out of the house. The fanalis held the stinger right at the point where it met the chain, being careful not to trip over the rest of the chain. "Right. Let's go meet up with them.. there doesn't seem to be anything here."

As they made their way into the cave, Bahir couldn't help but ask. The vase that the man was carrying hadn't left his mind since he noticed it again in the town. "Dorian... what's the deal with the vase? How did it take all of what we found there?" The fanalis eyed the weird markings of the cave, waiting on an answer from Dorian. Despite the interesting runes, Bahir wouldn't allow himself to get distracted again.

Dorian shrugged his shoulders, "I would say they were eaten too, but all that's left is blood. I hope we don't find out..." He didn't want to think much on it, so he continued working in silence until him and Bahir headed to the cave. Lighting a torch, Dorian followed behind Bahir as they entered the dark tunnel, where the Fanalis asked about the vase.

Dorian chuckled, "Handy little thing, eh? There's a funny story behind these vases actually. About a decade ago, in Balbadd, there was a magician who smuggled weapons and magical tools to bandits. They'd use their arms to attack rival trade caravans, which gave him more business. Trixie hates people like that, so she led a raid against his warehouse. Crafty little bugger had most of his inventory in these vases. So we picked them up and noticed they were light enough to carry, but filled to the brim with merchandise. Easy steal, right? Only thing is, once we got to the ships, we set them down and that's when all hell broke loose. All of a sudden the vases got super heavy, taking on the weight of everything inside them and broke through the hulls. Lost five ships before we realized what we were doing wrong."

He took a sip from his water skin and shook his head. "The magician had assumed the bandits would turn on him one day so he designed the vases to punish them. Once you load something into one of these vases, it will shrink so you can fit a ton of stuff in them, while reducing its weight as well. However, once you set it down, it goes into an unload state and the full force of its weight is applied. You have to unload everything before it resets again. An effective tactic, eh?"




The Cerberus' middle head nodded as Lagi stepped forward, listening to the man speak. The man's body language expressed his character as one that stood defiant against the odds, a spirit unbroken. At first his words rang true, but as Lagi kept speaking, the Cerberus noticed a thread of deception. The beast waited until the man finished speaking before letting out a fiery snarl. "Lie. While your expression suggests you are opposed to the concept of slavery, it is clear it is acceptable for animals to be your slaves. They are simply cattle to serve you."

The Cerberus considered Lagi's words for a moment before continuing. "I suppose you have that in common with my master. He was one of the first people to begin the Red Lion slave trade. This island taught him that they were simply beasts underneath some clever magic. To him, animals were lesser beasts, their only purpose was to be used by the manipulations of man. So he placed shackles around the Red Lions, called them Fanalis and sold them for labor. However, he was able to be recognize that within him and admit it."

The three-headed beast then turned to Merrze, "He failed my test, but I will withhold my judgement until all have spoken. What say you?" He listened to the Fanalis warrior give her response carefully, noting that she too would not enslave her people. He was amused that the two answers were similar in their disgust for the concept of slavery. It narrowed their thinking, none of them considering accepting the deal in order to get the food and money, only to revolt when the country was back on its feet. Instead, they would keep a destitute country and starve with its citizens, scorning the option for everyone to live in comfort with a few less freedoms.

As she finished speaking, the Cerberus detected the smell of two people approaching. "Ah, another Red Lion." He watched Bahir and Dorian approach while considering Merrze's response. While her answer seemed cruel, the Cerberus detected honesty behind her words. "My master believed that a man who was honest with himself and accepted the darkness within was a man worthy of changing the world. I believe you are that man...woman. You may pass. If you can accept Lagi's faults and the others, they can pass as well, even though they may be unworthy."

The Cerberus let out a roar and a platform of fire appeared at the treasure-hunters feet, spanning the distance to the other side of the cavern, where the cave continued. If Merrze vouched for the others, they would be able to cross the bridge and continue on their way. If they had any questions, the three-headed beast would consider them and give them an answer if he could. The Cerberus waited until they went into the other cave before he descended into the lava, the bridge vanishing with him.

Merrze was glad that she had managed to pass the trial that she had been provided with. She believed that if she was ever confronted with the situation she might be able to think of a better plan but at the moment she had gave the most honest answer that she could. She was surprised by the fact that Lagi had failed the test, she thought he would've passed and was surprised by why he failed but she would consider and be wary of Lagi, she couldn't hate him but she felt like she was learning more about his nature if he was lying.

"I accept all of them for their faults, they are not bad people and after all our faults are what help make us the people that we are."

She thought about the things that the Cerberus had said, she tried her best to accept her darkness and was surprised he believed she was worthy to change the world. But now that the opportunity had come forth she had the chance to ask him questions, one would be for her own personal knowledge and the other would be to help the group for whatever may come after this trial. She gave a deep breath then asked the creature in her normal kind tone with a tone of intrigue to it.

"I only have two questions for, you said the fanalis or the red lions were beasts under magic, what does this mean what is my species exactly, if possible please explain this to me. The second question is what comes after you, is it the treasure and possible secrets but are there more trial to come or monsters to deal with?"

El drago gave them a small welcome and followed Bahir and Darius to the cave, but he stopped “I’ll guarding this cave, tell Lagi what's going on. Be safe you two El drago was a little worried about Lagi. He was hardheaded, proud, and surprisingly had the most fragile heart. Once he starts to care for someone, he would give it his all for them, and break down in tears if something happened to them or if he felt too hurt inside. This human child was El Drago’s partner, he would of hoped that Lagi would someday fully mature. “Hopefully he hasn’t done anything foolish…..”

This was a familiar feeling to him, the  feeling of rejection and being passed over as his current convictions and ideals were a lie. How could they be? Lagi wouldn’t allow anything to happen to his people. Was he seen as such a slave trader because he is a dominance beast user? Were animals truly his slaves? But this was his tradition of using animals to better the lives of others, such dangerous beasts should have more of a purpose in life than to roam around and hurt others, right?  Wasn’t it the El Nagi’s job to find that purpose for them? Even lagi’s taming tactics changed, it was never done by force or violence since he made the pact  with el drago. His failure here made him confused. “it’s so easy to just admit that, everything we done that turned out to be positive for  others, as well as better living conditions and less danger for the animals we adopt and care for. Now by you words, it’s like  my own existence, my families, is a sin. You lump us with the slavers? Like the ones that took merrze away from her daughter?  Am I supposed to admit that I am just like them when I wanted to kill them for what they did to her? I already accepted darkness in my heart, I fell once. I know if fall again, I might not come back.”

Lagi was silent for a while, but he smiled at merrze. “ How could we want the same thing, but I still end up losing?” Lagi was silent once more, but he started up again.” Hey, you know? Remember that time we had about you forming your country one day? If  you are recognized by the Cerberus like this, maybe it isn’t so far-fetched. Maybe you could do it, even better than ever could. That’s one of the things that makes you admirable, your hidden gem of leadership, conviction, and acceptance.”   He felt defeated, a bit similar to how he felt in vassago’s chamber when the djinn passed over him.  Merrze vouched for them and gave them passage; Lagi crossed over and only had a few questions.

“Who was your master, what was their name? Does the name “El Nagi”, mean anything to you? What’s the big deal about this island? That village outside of the cave, how could anyone sustain life on this rock? Is there anyone on this island besides us that’s still alive? What are those drawings in the cave about?

Bahir was a bit impressed that El Drago managed to squeeze himself into the cave. The assassin blinked for a moment and then shook his head, speaking quietly. "That won't be necessary. I can still use my legs." The fanalis had a joking tone to his voice and did his best to keep it up. This island had seemed to be wearing on them and morale didn't need to get any lower. If only his tactics worked on himself.




It wasn't long until the damp, cool environment of the cave began to change. The damp air dried quickly and the temperature began to rise. Bahir had caught whiff of a slight sulfur smell, but paid no attention to it at first. Now, he realized that he should've heeded his senses. Bahir, Dorian, and El Drago made their way slowly and cautiously, until a voice rang through the tunnels of the cavern. That... wasn't Lagi's voice.. The fanalis tensed for a moment, his grip on the serpent's kiss tightening. The voice that they just heard was a very big, bombastic voice that echoed throughout the cavern. The fanalis turned his head to Dorian and El Drago to give a short warning to stay alert before continuing.

When the three made their way to the source of the new atmosphere, there seemed to be a bit more room to navigate. The source of the voice turned its attention to the three new presences when one of the heads settled on Bahir. The creature called him something that he hadn't heard before. A... A Red Lion? The fanalis narrowed his eyes for a moment before Merrze began to speak to the creature. It was then that the creature's words from before began to settle in Bahir's mind. He must have put them through a trial... Lagi... The fanalis may not have heard the King and the the Lioness's answers, but he did happen to hear the guardian's response to them both.

Then it began. Bahir's eyes went to Lagi as the King began to speak, rambling about the creature's response. The man was beginning to doubt himself again. Bahir's instincts led him to know it would happen soon. When a man is prideful, as he and Lagi were, self doubt had a tendency to creep around whenever they are overcome. While the beast master rambled, Bahir sighed and made his way over to the two trial takers. He laid his hand on Lagi's shoulder, trying to get the man to snap back to the task at hand. "We're almost there, boss. Keep it together." The answers to the questions that Merrze and Lagi asked were the very things that Bahir wanted to hear... but he had to make sure that his King would be able to continue. Even if he wasn't his usual self, the main priority was was protecting the group and getting back off the island. Once the group's questions were answered, Bahir would head into the other cave with the others.
