Job Details:
Job Name: Nightly Killings
Job Rank: B
Job Location: Kou Empire
Job Rewards: 200 EXP & 15,000 Haung
Job Overview:
A local gang has taken advantage of the civil distress and are attacking a town repeatedly, killing citizens each night. The authorities are trying to stop them, but their forces are stretched too thin, seeing how many men are soldiers fighting in the civil war. It's up to you to go and send the gang a message, teaching them that their behavior won't go unpunished.

Enemy Name: Goons x3
Rank: C
Needed damage to take down: C

Abilities:
Back Scratch: Goons attack using the back of their fist, dealing C-Tier Damage.

Enemy Name: Head Gangster
Rank: B
Needed damage to take down: B
Description: The boss leading the small gang, he's dressed far nicer than his goons, but he's much nastier. He isn't afraid of blood and uses a sharp, shortsword designed to leave B-tier wounds.
Abilities:
Gutting Stab: The Head Gangster thrusts his blade to deal B-Tier damage to the gut of his opponent, setting them up for his next attack.
Gutting Slash: The Head Gangster slashes his blade across the gut of his opponent, dealing B-Tier damage and opening up a hole in their stomach if his prior attack landed. The two attacks together are fatal to his enemy.

In the midst of this hell, there is no rest for the wicked. Rain beat like war drums against the ground. The roads were flooded with innocent blood and the tides from the tempest that swept through the town. The clicks of the heels on their boots added tempo to the cries of widows and dying children around them. Every town they had been through was destroyed. The citizens raped of their lives and homes. There had never been a better day for a hunt.

Pluto ran his hand through his long, white hair. His eyes glowed bright with the color of his own bloodlust and his breath left his mouth in tufts of smoke. A gust of wind blew past, pulling his fur in a trail behind him. The scent of the hunt blew through his nose. His mouth watered as his hunger grew greater. He shuddered at the thought of tearing into flesh, the full feeling in his belly.

"Soon."

Diana placed a hand on his arm, her grip like a tight iron chain around his true nature. A low growl escaped his throat. He could smell her blood; hear it dripping off of her body. He couldn't remember how long they had been hunting. The pursuit seemed to last forever. But their target was a high priority.

"My lady, we are close." Pluto felt the scent become more intense. His entire body reacted to it as if it was able to penetrate his very soul. A thick, sizzling gas seeped out of his mouth. "Pluto." He replied to her with a rough breath, anticipating her command. "You may feast until you are full. Kill until you are sated. Purge. It is our duty as hunters." In a moment, he was gone with only a breeze left behind him.

The hunt was like a never ending dream. They had the blood of the forsaken stained their hands. Born by this blood and thus will be undone by it. A hunter surrenders themselves to the nature of the beasts they hunt. Thus, this nature tears them apart. Something was brewing within her, she felt it. A beast lie dormant in her heart, feeding off the very blood that forsakes her. In her hand laid proof of this. A blackness seeping out from inside of her.

"S̵̡͖̥̩̘̙̹̻͂̊̀͂̄̅́Ȗ̶̢̥̭̩͇͇͔̲̟̖̖̞͖̮̈́C̵͉̪͖̘̹̼͙̬̩͇̲̞̫͐͂̎̓̏̂͛̎̓̆C̵̢̤͚̖͓͔̯̼̟͒Ų̶̘̥̫̼̼̱̍͌̔̃̀͌͋͗̿̀̎̀̕̚͘͜͝͠Ḿ̵̛̭͖̙͐̈̏̐̀̃͑̓̕͘̚͝B̸̪̩͈̜͔̺̟̤͉̿́̀́͜ ̴̼̲̣̖̘͋̾͂̓̚T̸̢̧̩̜͓͍̱̀͜O̵̧͍͉͙͍̳̥͚̙̙̱̳̖̪͚̊̽ ̷̧̥͚̙̗̞̗̥̺̫͉̬̞̘̦̥̬̯̃͊͐̇̆͂̋͌̀͘͜͠M̵̢̡͉̪̼͈͙̙̟̹̟̦͓͕͕̓̉̊̋́̄̐̈́͆̃͘͝͝Ë̶̡̡̲̻̘͈͙̹͍̭̱̮͕̦̤̪̮̻͈́͌͂͗̈͒̇͋̋͐͊͛̄͆̌̔̑͜ͅ"

The curse thrashed against the walls in her head. It wanted control. She felt it claw at her insides. It was made of a pure, agonizing rage. Her eyes rolled into the back of her head, leaving a darkness in their place. She stumbled forward as she lost control. Everything around her was pulsating violently.

Diana found herself in a void faced with the very same demon that haunted her dreams.

That void had surrounded her, leaving her in an endless black abyss. A puff of soot dragged across the bottomless floor, surrounding her. It penetrated her lungs, suffocating her. She gasped desperately for air and all she could taste was death. Her bones began to crack rapidly and her body buckled down to the ground. She screamed but there was no answer. This went on for hours or so it seemed. Her body was changing into something monstrous. A creature unknown to her.

“Ä̷͈͍̰͈́͐͑͌̉̉́̋͑́̌R̷̛̭̞͕͍̮͈̓͒͜͝E̵͕̭̻͑͑̈͛̄̏́̒̽̂̏͠͝ ̵̛̛̜̜͇͚̰̬͔̮̤̙͉̩̜̲̘̐͛̓̈́͋̈́̽̏̚͠Y̵̠̝͇̖̝̪̠̥̪̱̾̓̎̑̽͐͘̕O̴̢̡̗̝̯̤͖̮̟̹̮͛͒̊̀Ư̸̱̦̞̜͆̅̓̔̉̉̀͊̐͂͛̿̑͝ ̷͕͖̗̟͗̓͒͌̍́̾̔͜A̸̢̛̹͓̥̣̜̤̳̲̝̣̐͆́̌̂̓̈́̈́̽̇̕̚͝ͅF̸̢̧͕̠̫̻̤̩͍̱̖̏̈̅̃̋̔̈̂̊̕͜͝ͅͅȒ̷͓̟͚͔̱̫͕͇͕͉̲̲̤̮̃̿̀̓̽͋̂̚͜A̵̢̱̦͑̇̕I̴̧̗̹̥̾̏D̴̝̝̞̜̭̬̱̜̙͚͚̘̲̹̩̋̀͛͛͐̆̅͘͝,̷̛̫̈̈́̀̓́ ̴̘͉̟̪̹͚̦̮͖͔̂̏͗̉͊͌̏̆̇͗̿̌̐͘͜͠Ç̸̡̞͙̪̬͎̘̮͉̭͙̐̓͌̑̌̍͊͗̈̌͛̓͆̚͠Ư̷̼̦̣̙͍̼͋̀̿͛̈̔̏̿̑̈́͋B̷̧̨̛̟͕̘̪̻̹̪͚̎̋̔̀͐ͅ?̴̡͇̜̱̼̻̯̬̦̭̣̟̲̀͆̐̃͛̀̋̅͑͋͐͑̚”

The void beneath her turned into a mirror-like liquid. The beast she became was that of those only told in tales. A white mane draped down the sides of her neck, the inky water below seeping up into the thick strands. Her frame was that of a canine but not quite. The skin that was once smooth was covered in white, iridescent scales that reflected off of the water.

She couldn’t bare to look at herself but couldn’t help but stare as her body slowly became consumed by the darkness. The voice laughed in a deep, menacing tone. Her pure white began turning into a pitch black as her eyes surged across her skull with a violent red hue glowing from their depths. An unwavering anger pulsed through her chest and into her entire body. It was uncontrollable. Her cries became snarls and growls, distressing her further.

“Ṁ̸̡̧̹̰̥̯̂̕͜͜Ờ̸̪̝̫̙͗̽̆̂̅͗͒͂̈́͐̓̑N̷̛̫̓̂̌̈́͠S̸̛̱̘̠̻͇̣̠̿̈́͗̍̓͜T̵̨̞̼̳̈̈́̂̈́̐̑̕̚͘͠E̸̞̮͕̍̏ͅR̵̖̖̩̮̩͊̾S̷̢̢͙̼͇̩̳̗̖̼̥̕͜ ̷̧̩̤̩͕͇̜̪̮͓̃̃̿̔́͗̿̓͆́̈͐͊̾̐͜ͅS̸̨͓̭̫̥̳̣̟͈͖͍̙̊͋̆̈́̈̈̋͊̈́͘ͅH̸̰̍̀͗O̷̘͍͚͕͎͚̫͕̬͈͈͌Ǘ̸̧͉̭̥̄̈́̈́͑̊̂̄̂̑͂͑͆̊L̶̢̦̘͙̮͔̬̣̻̟̱͎͎͉̈́̃̋̇̅̈́̏́̈́̀̽̏͘͘D̸̯̩̹̥̞͉̩̩̲͕̫̿̍͂͗̉̂̍̊̑̅́̚͘ ̵̨̡̢͎̝̳͖̯̤̐̔̂̏̈́̀͗͜͜B̸̡̻͇̫͔̘̰̪̗̞̣̣̠̌̇̉̈̎͑̾E̴̛͖̠̤̙̗͍̗̻̮̺͍̘̊͊̏͛̽͂̓́͑͜͠ ̶̥͖̥̻̽̅̐Ĭ̸̛͎̜̤̯͎̪͕́͛́͌̀͒̎̽͜͝͝N̶̨͖̝͖̅͆̑̏̈́ ̷̢͚̩̿͘C̷̞̺̫̾̈́̉̀̾̆̂̎̓̆̊͝͝H̴̼̟̳̺͔͈̾̐̀̓̎̐̊̃̚͝À̸̛̫̞̫̦͕̰̙͝Ḯ̵̧͙̲͎̮̹̻͙͓̩̹N̴͇͉̼̦͚̂̅́͊̾̄́̓̃̓̔͝S̴̡͎̥̲̪̣͚͎̠̕.̸̪̖̪͎͉̲̃̈́̃͠͠”


A beast, much like herself appeared from the depths in front of her. However, it was of monstrous proportions, staring deep into her eyes. It’s maw twisted into a sickening grin as it laughed at her. Diana felt a sharp, constricting pain around various points on her body. Bladed chains surrounded her, locking her down to the ground. The beast had similar chains but they flowed loosely off their body.

It’s laughter was slowly drowned out by the sound of rain and the splash of heavy footsteps in the mud. Diana was running towards them, her body moving on its own. Her vision blurred by a dark film over her eyes. The prey was slow, easy to catch. Her mind couldn’t think of anything else than to feel the warmth of their blood spill over her hands. She grabbed onto two of them. They flailed desperately to remove themselves from her grasp. Their faces painted with sheer terror.

It didn’t take much to kill them. Her hands crushed their throats like a lioness claiming her prey, locked into place as they bled. They convulsed, choking on a river of endless blood that poured from their vessel. Pluto was ahead of her, slaughtering the rest of them in their sights. A few got away but their scent was still fresh. Every crunch of bone within his jaws left shivers of disgust through her body.

What am I doing?

Diana felt a tinge of humanity return to her but the beast pulled her back. A thick, black liquid dripped from her mouth. Pluto gazed at her with concern in his eyes. “My lady?” His voice stirred around in her head, it’s presence was an extra hand tugging at her control against the beast within her. “I’m okay.” She managed to muster a few words but no more would escape from her lips. Diana continued towards the scent. It was weakened by the rain yet still strong enough to chase.

The hunters were led into the depths of the forest. These creatures had intended to trade one for the other, desperate to survive. If they had left them, they might have killed each other. Diana approached the two, Pluto circling their prey, closer and closer. The larger of the two swung his sword at her, leaving deep cuts into her arms and legs. Blood poured from her wounds but they felt numb.

Why?

Her hand caught onto his wrist. Pluto snapped at the smaller man, catching half of his body in his mouth. The man punched his maw frantically trying to escape. But it was little use. With a single snap of his jaw, he was dead and slowly descending into the belly of the hunter.

“I-I’ll give you anything! Jewels, money, anything! J-Just let me live!”

The larger man tried to pry himself from her grasp, screaming as her grip tightened. Her head tilted. His voice sounded garbled. It scared her. What was happening to her? As he reached to obtain another weapon, Pluto stomped down with his paw and crushed the man. A small trail of blood dripped from his foot, a small dagger falling out from under it. Pluto let out a short huff, pressing his nose into her hand. She opened it slowly, dropping the man’s severed hand onto the ground below. “Diana.” He tried to grab her attention, his voice loud and penetrating unlike the others.

“Are you okay?”

Diana had spaced out, staring at the mangled body below. Her eyes cleared up and her mind returned to reality. “What happened? Who… who is this..?” She stepped back a few paces, wiping the blood on her hands onto her dress. “Pluto,” she whined, looking at him for answered. He tilted his head in confusion. “Prey,” he replied. She was relieved but there was still a knot in her chest that wouldn’t quite go away.

“I guess… I just had a nightmare.”

“Home?”

“Yes… We can go… home.”

Wherever home was, she would find it. Part of her wanted to be alone. Is this what was happening to Rima? Was she strong enough or would she turn into one of those monsters like Yamato had said? Diana had many reasons to tell them yet they were the same reasons she would use to keep quiet. Rima didn’t have to know. They didn’t have to know. That was what she convinced herself.
