The beginning of our tale:

The novice summoners had gathered. The summoning had somehow succeeded. The demon stood before them. There was silence in the air for a time. One of the summoners(mine) gulped and took a careful step back. A breeze passed by. The summoner who gulped soon spoke up.
"Are you the....one we called forth?"
There was tension in the air as a response from the demon was anticipated.

Pablo PaoPao





Dear god, they had done it! The demon had been summoned; One that would flex his powers and save the entire realm from the hellish plague sighted in the skies! This had been their last hope, honestly, though really Pablo had been ready for the end since this started: Maybe it was fate for them to die, maybe they weren't intend to ever be free from it. Summoning a demon to care for their problems was perhaps a sign of the end; An unavoidable plight that would soon ravish them to the last man, and leave them all as nothing more but decaying corpses in the kingdom they once called home. Pablo had no idea if this would truly work; He knew demons had greater powers, but how great? This plight seemed to not just overtake the kingdom, but the entire world as far as scouts could spot.

This helplessness in his spirit? Hopelessness keeping his nerves shot and body numb? Maybe it was actually an after-effect of summoning a powerful demon: He had never done it before, thank goodness Madam Victoria had been there: Her experience was greater than his, at least. Without her aide he may have ended up losing more than momentary strength: These summonings could cost one their soul; Their entire life, in an instant, from the wrong methods used. He found himself laughing, sweating, nervous: What a damn thrill! Gods, he hadn't felt this excited in so many years: Not since he first learned to use a spear! He licked his lips, anxiously staring at the demon as if to see it display it's potential: It made no difference who spoke to it, or why, he wanted to see power! He wanted to see greatness! He wanted fear to be displayed; Horrors beyond his mind being used to save his kingdom! How heroic to summon such a creature to benefit his people; Though what if it backfired and the demon chose to kill them all?! Hoh, what a turn that'd be, huh? Perhaps it was the thought process of a sickened man, but he couldn't help but be eager: So much was on the line, so many alternative paths this one demon could take that would save or destroy them all, how utterly magnificent! This amused him to no end!

Looking at the others, they seemed less amused: Madam Victoria seemed fearful, herself. And while Pablo also felt utter terror, it drove him to smiles and damn near maniac laughter: Of course he was the one they brought forth; Pablo didn't see any other demons around! The fear must've misted her mind; Or perhaps the demon was already eating her thoughts? So many possibilities, though he did hope Madam Victoria hadn't already found herself strained: He was relying on her for guidance at this point in time, after all! Her initiative and aide in summoning may have been necessary for this to have happened at all: Heavens or hells knew if she'd be needed to bring them together again later! For there was potentially much difficulty to come with stopping whatever plagued them all.

"Of course it's the one!" Pablo declared, raising his hands in triumph. "Look at his fearsome form; His terrifying glare! Truly, we managed a summoning even the elders would shite themselves over accomplishing!" He gloated with pride, though despite his fear, this demon didn't send off much of an aura. Was he perhaps weaker than he looked? Pathetic, even? Pablo couldn't be sure, but he was anxious to find out. No matter the cost.

Victoria had not believed her eyes. She STILL could not believe her eyes. She was just a novice. She had, honest and truly, not thought that she nor any other beginner would have enough power to accomplish such a thing. She had truly lacked any sort of confidence in herself at the time. However, it would seem that their combined power was, in fact, enough to accomplish such a feat. She was in utter disbelief. It seemed to good to be true. Yet, here they were, a true demon, summoned to their world through the powers they had to do such a thing as that. The female summoner took a deep breath and looked at Pablo. She managed a single nod in response before she spoke.
"I...I see that."
She took another deep breath. She did her best to calm her own nerves. She closed her eyes for a moment before she glanced between the demon and Pablo.
"well, I...I hope that our plan will work, that this...being...is the key that we sought."
She frowned after she said that. She paused at that point, as she did not know what else to say. All she could do was stand there, wondering what the others were all thinking at that very moment.

Well, well, well! They finally had a demon in front of them. Frankly, Lune was not confident that their plan was going to work at all. The woman watched from her spot as she glanced up and down the beast they had summoned. It was certainly... pathetic looking. She almost felt sorry for it. Then again, she was the strongest summoner there; maybe everyone's weakness caused them to summon a lesser being.

"I expected more." A simple statement. "Looks like it could fall over with the wind."

Oh, how much she'd rather be hunting just about now.

Holy cannoli! A demon! It worked! Although it wasn't... as big as he had expected. Maybe this was all they were able to summon with their meager power. Alex knew he certainly wasn't much help. Or perhaps for whatever reason, this demon was weakened, and therefore easier to summon? It was a demon right? It certainly didn't look like any human he'd ever seen. Some of his features seemed... animalistic. He had hooves like a horse, and his hands were wreathed in fire.

"Well, I'd certainly hope this is our demon. Otherwise... we might be in for a bit of a bad time." Alex gripped his staff a little more firmly, just in case. The oaken staff was just a little bigger than he was. He had designed it himself. Lacquered, inscribed with basic arcane runes, and perfectly sanded down to give the best grip possible for him. At the top was clear gem. Crystal, given to him by his mentor, Donovan.

Would this demon truly help them? Would it even speak their language? "So." Alex held his arms out to the side. "Welcome to the realm of the humans. We're uh... not doing so hot right now." Alex returned his arms back down to his sides. "I'm Alex. These schmucks are my uh, 'co-workers' if you will." Hopefully a little bit of introduction would put this demon at ease somewhat. Even though the demon seemed weakened, it would likely still be a formidable foe. One he couldn't fight alone. Fortunately he had several allies that would probably help him if things went awry.

Pablo PaoPao

Bothering: @Ambra





Still looking at the demon, Pablo's eyes slowly began to close: His cute lashes grazing the skin below his eyes as his eyes remained closed for a moment, eyes scanning the black void that was visible once his eyes were covered as he thought about being referred to as something such as a 'co-worker'. What a way with words Alex had, a perfect introduction to welcome this abomination into their world; Truly striking, he had to admit. It may have moved his very soul honestly. there was almost no doubting it at this point aside from the fact his soul was still resting within his body! or was it? Perhaps the demon had already stolen their souls? That was an amazing thought that passed through Pablo's mind as his eyes remained closed, more firmly becoming shut as a moment of amusement from what the others had said passed over him; Oh dear, it seemed Lune was ready to start pissing it off, too! Oh how joyous this could be; Demon vs Dinosaur combat!

Admittedly he wanted to make a remark; Maybe get a bite or two from that transformation of hers, but perhaps riling her up too much was a bad idea. He wouldn't want to start trouble in front of their demon, after all. It probably wasn't sure of what the hell was going on-- At least until Alex put it simply. But now just about everything should make sense, if someone bothered explaining it. Pablo wasn't going to for sure; He was brought along to summon it, not bargain with it. Or feed it. Or water it. or amuse it. Or fight it. Or deny it. Or deep-fry it. Or double-barrel high-flying skydive kick it. Or whatever else-it. Just observe for his own amusement and pain at best; For the loss of the entire world at worse.

Was there a problem with that? He sure didn't think so, but you know, there were some crybabies among the royals who would complain or call him a traitor at this point despite him truly not doing anything wrong. Pablo figured that was, at this point, their problem and not his. Since the elder summoners were all ill like the fools they were and needed their pathetic care, it was left to the true shining examples of the kingdom: The lovely novices surrounding the demon right now! Oh, yes! His eyelids had a small amount of movement but still hadn't opened, as he thought about the possibilities here: He had just told himself he shouldn't start trouble, but getting bitten by a dinosaur seemed like a once in a lifetime opportunity: He imagined the pain, the bleeding, and agony, and it got him excited beyond belief. Maybe she'd hack his limb straight off? How badass would it be to have one arm? Or hell, if she took a leg, he wouldn't have to help anyone anymore! He could spend his days as a cripple: Studying, eating, relaxing, not fighting for sure. Summoning demons, maybe, but with the ability to shun all his other responsibilities he'd be such a good summoner by the time he was done: He'd make everyone here look like not just a clown, but the entire circus!

But maybe she'd go for the face? His chest? Throat? Shoulders? Arsecheeks? He had no idea; That was what made it so fun! The unknown was the most exciting of all; He had no idea what would happen, and it positively attracted him in every manner possible. Slowly, his eyes began to open; A sparkly twinkle shooting from his lashes as they did so: His gaze was turned to Lune, a grin firm on his face as he finished blinking, ready to present her with some sort of snark. Should he insult her directly? Flirt? Both? Or add even more? The possibilities here were endless, and that made it difficult to chose: But he had to decide on something or the opportunity would be lost. So what to go for, what to say? How bothersome that he was having such a difficult time; It allowed a short moment of silence where the demon may have thought the summoners were done speaking but Aah-HAH! He got it! A moment of pure inspiration hit him, he gifted thanks to the blinking for it! Eye-rest was truly superior to all other forms of resting.

"Dearest me, Lune! I suppose your transformation isn't just for show, you've got bite even in your regular form-- Gods forbid if this ISN'T your regular form because your attitude proves it could swing either way!

Victoria blinked. She looked at Lune. She frowned and looked concerned. She didn't know what to say at first.
"Well, I...I am not sure what to make of this."
She admitted that much. She was not one to lie. She usually told the truth. She took a deep breath. She continued to try and calm herself. She glanced around at the otbers and the demon before she glanced towards Lune again.
"What do you think?"
She was sincere when asking that.
"What is your opinion of this?"
She paused. She hoped that she was not the only nervous one in the group. She wondered how they were able to succeed where the experts had failed. It seemed...in a way....too good to be true.

Lune turned towards Pablo, her pupils constricting in annoyance. This man talked too much. She curled her lip, revealing razor sharp fangs. "I've always liked the more talkative men. They taste better than usual," she snarled as she hovered closer, her teeth swiping over her mouth as she glanced him over. Victoria's voice brought her back to the present and she whipped her head around, her snarl becoming much less amused.

"What do I think of this? This is utterly ridiculous. How are we to know that this demon won't just slaughter us where we all stand?" she asked her. It didn't matter. Lune could take on the demon easily. He looked delicious, even now...

Victoria blinked. She took a step back. She took another deep breath before she cleared her throat and spoke.
"I can not say what may or may not happen."
She paused briefly. Then, she continued on.
"I can not confirm anything. However, this may be the only chance we have left. It is our last resort. It is better than nothing. We had to do SOMETHING rather than do nothing. Our world needs help. I have a feeling that a deal could be struck but beyond that I am unsure. I just hope that nothing worse happens than what already has."
She frowned and sighed a bit. She closed her eyes for a moment before she looked at Lune again, as well as the others. She wondered what the others were thinking at that moment.
"I have nothing else to say on that."
She was quiet after that.

Pablo tilted his head, observing Lune with a smirk. What, that's all she had to say? She seemed interested almost; And that was good enough for him. "My, when you word it like that, it almost makes me excited!" He remarked, hoping she'd follow up on her cute threat: He was curious to see just how far it'd go. "I've been curious to see just how carnivorous you really are."

Rocking back on his heels, he glanced between Lune and Victoria, noting the latter's words. Wise words, indeed! This was a time of need; His need to see Lune's violent side for himself, and the world's need for the demon! "Listen to Madam Victoria, you scaled wazzock! Perhaps if you used your brain instead of your teeth you'd realize the terror before you! I could care less about how this ends, especially if you decide to try to take a bite out of this demon here! Watching him rip you in half would be the greatest entertainment I've had in years!"

Victoria let out a sigh. She frowned. She was truly speechless and did not know what to say. She looked around at the group.
"I....I..."
She paused. She took a deep breath. She finally managed to speak after a time.
"please do not fight. We have to work together. We have no choice but to set any differences we may have aside for the sake of our homeland. It and our people need us. We can not let them down. We must do whatever we can to save us all."
She tried to sound as sincere as possible when she said that.

A magical item of great importance had been stolen from the underworld. I’m his centuries of service, Kharon had finally failed on one of his only duties. He was met with great disappointment and anger by his servitor, but alas, he was lucky to have been known as a hunter as well. Entering the world of the living and tracking down the item would be a breeze, especially with an inferior species known as humans. They were a greedy race that constantly went to war with one another, a quality he didn’t mind as he was the guardian of the dead. Now getting to the world of the living was another ordeal, that was until a light binding erupted around him blinding his vision. Whatever spell was used Kharon was somehow summoned to the real world. Half the work was done for him all he needed to do was...his thought process shattered as he felt cripplingly weak upon arrival. Not only had he been sapped of strength but his demonic form gone with it. Pale fleshy skin was all he could make out, he had been chained to the body of a human. This was enough to send him into an outrage, but that wasn’t all for the nefarious demon. It appeared he was surrounded by his captors, what appeared to be humans with the affinity for magic. So they had evolved from years ago, but their chattering was so incessant and annoying it was stoking the fires within him even faster. Kharon snarled in anger letting out a deafening warped voice “WOULD YOU JUST BE QUIET!” Whatever candles had been lit in the room were suddenly extinguished. Still weak from his summon he fell to his knees reeling from his demonstration. Taking in a few gasps of air he raised his haid, “who are you?”

There was a rush of wind as the demon exploded in anger, snuffing out the candles on the room. Alex let out a small chuckle as he held out his arms once more. "Well! It speaks!" He chuckled once more, and returned his arms to his side. "Well, I suppose some introductions are in order. Let's start with me, shall we?"

"My name is Alex, like I said beforehand." He pointed a thumb at himself. "I'm a magician. I'm also a novice Summoner, like the rest of these poor schmucks. My main training is in Illusion magic. Observe." Alex raised his staff and tapped it on the ground, all the while speaking a near-silent incantation. The instant his staff touched the ground, Alex dissapeared from sight. "See? Well, no, I suppose you wouldn't see." There was another tapping sound, and Alex winked back into existence. "Ta-da! Invisibility! A common illusion spell. Now, who's next?"

Victoria blinked. She gulped and took a deep breath afterwards. She took a step back before saying even a single word.
"I...I am...Victoria."
Victoria managed to look right at the demon. She did not look at any of the others for a while. She frowned a bit as well.
"please be calm. We have not summoned you to fight with you. We, this kingdom, the human race, need your help."
She pointed to the sky and everything else as she continued.
"Our world is in danger. We are desperate for help. What can we give you or promise you that will grant us assistance from one such as yourself?"

She waited to hear what the demon had to say.

Lune snarled at Paolo's words, feeling her temper rise more and more. Just as she was about to jump at the man and tear out his throat, she heard the demon speak up-- no, he screamed at them, which definitely drew her attention. The woman growled under her breath at the member of their squad. Ah, so they were introducing themselves. In an instant, she shifted into her dinosaur form and started to prowl around their numbers.

"My name is Lune, I am a shapeshifter. I am the strongest of our numbers, so I will be the one to add on to Victoria's words. If you do not wish to help us, then you will perish."

Pablo pouted at the demon's loud shouting and Victoria's scolding, finding no amusement in the latter's words but finding himself somewhat entranced by the demon's anger; The darkened room making great atmosphere. "Please, we're not children. We can handle our own matters!" He retorted to Victoria with little to no grace, teeth revealed as Alex's introduction to the demon. Oh, after annoying it already this was sure to end perfectly, wasn't it?

He crossed his arms, listening to everyone go before him so rudely; He wanted his turn too, you know! Lune admittedly cracked him up; The strongest? What, because she could have tiny arms and massive jaw strength? Perhaps physically, but dinosaurs weren't known for having the largest of brains, were they? He most certainly doubted they were hyper-intelligent. The woman seemed like nothing but an aggressor; Her wits were probably far behind.

"Please, Lune. Threats are the worse negotiation tactic." He scolded the admittedly smelly woman-turned-beast: Before spreading out his arms as a welcoming gesture. "I am one of these 'schmucks' that Alex refers to! PaoPao Pablo. Ignore the beast and do know that we are mostly reasonable, if admittedly, pathetic folk."

Slowly, a rope of fleshy spiky, slimy entrails spilled from his sleeves, lightly wriggling in puppeted agony by Pablo himself. "Alex gave me a small inspiration to show off my own talents as well... These lovely things are more dangerous than you might imagine. Could even make one quite the fearsome opponent?" His eyes shot towards Lune again, watching her movements closely. He had noted her snarling and glares, but didn't regard either much.

The first of the humans spoke, this one was less meek than the woman before him. His words bounced off him like drops of rain with no deeper meaning. Something about being a summoner and making pretty illusions. Whatever he was playing at, Kharon wasn’t buying it nor having it. His boredom casted his attention to the other humans in the room. While they spoke, he had been attempting to siphon the remainder of his power to go back to the underworld but there just wasn’t enough. Kharon could smell the fear pouring out of Victoria, he disappeared into a puddle of smoke and reappeared behind Victoria running his fingers through her hair, “Now why would a demon like me help you?”

Waiting for her response his head snapped to another girl with a little more candor in her voice. A shapeshifter? That did peak his fancy. Perhaps someone could help free him from this god forsaken form and allow him to turn back into a hound. “Perish?” Kharon chuckled, “Oh sweetie if you could murder me, I wouldn’t be standing here being asked for help." Of them all however, the last of them caught his attention the most. “Do go on” he said still eerily close to Victoria.

Victoria stepped further back. She tried to keep a safe distance between her and the demon at the moment. She did not wish to take any risks. She took a deep breath and tried to calm herself after that. She then managed to speak again.
"I...I was just asking what you would like in return."
She looked away for a moment so she would not be making direct eye contact but then she found herself looking at the demon once again. She frowned for a bit as she wondered what the demon would ask for.
"D...demons usually want some form of payment, correct?"
She hoped that she had heard correctly about that. She would hate to be wrong in this, as being wrong could mean they were all in grave danger. That was what she thought. After a moment or so, she noticed that the demon had seemed to take a particular interest in her and she wondered why.
