Welcome to Aquapolis
A warm sun hung overhead the clean white and gray city, water like crystal reflected up below the various walkways as the citizens went along with their own business. It's been three days since they've been here. First to arrive where members of the DHO, and those representing the Charred Council, and along with the DHO were Gilgamesh and their science crews. Next was Kushiel and a band of angels, though they were as snobby as they usually were, Kushiel himself had decided to put aside his assigned duties, and act in the way he believes benefits heaven best, and that is to ensure the threat that Vega and the False Riders pose is neutralized. He made it very clear that he would claim this seal once that was over. The same went for Gomory, who arrived with a posse of demons she herself had handpicked, but for now she had a bone to pick with the one who calls himself Vega.
It was a strange sight seeing all of these figures stand in a Greek styled hall with an open roof, surrounded by pillars and cascading steps, lowering towards the center."So, it appears that everyone here has come for a common enemy. According to the visual reports by Aquapolis' security, the description matches the one they call Vega, it can be safely assumed he roams the wilds of Brightwater Isle. Furthermore, DHO have found the location of the next seal, located in the Pillars of the Earth"
, this man wore a vest, suspenders, and it appears in light of this weather, his coat is laid to his side on the table before him. The man was older in stature, but one could not help but notice the man behind him, bound. It was Sevrin, even in this predicament he was grinning, encased in a straight jacket, though it was unnecessary, as he was now a normal human. It was clear Gomory and Kushiel were eyeing him carefully."For now, we will focus on defending Aquapolis and it's seal. Kushiel and his angels will command airspace, Gomory will be at the gates leading into the rest of Brightwater Isle, and the DHO will handle communications, repairs, and technical aspects. All forces will deploy their specialized agents to either focusing on critical tasks in need of a specialist, or sending them on expeditions to the Pillars of the Earth, in search of the next Seal, and securing it"
, the elderly looking man's tone rested off, leading to letting the others speak."I have no objections to this arrangement. This will be an alliance until Vega, and the False Riders have been defeated... From which I will rejoin the main forces of Heaven, and continue our task on this realm. I will remind that I am here because I feel letting those factors run loose will be a detriment to everyone, including Him",
he firmly put it. It made some of the attending DHO and Gilgamesh members just a little uneasy, but it wasn't unexpected."Likewise, no objections to arrangement... However I would like to ask, why is HE present? I have not torn him to shreds yet for the sake of this shaky alliance. Was he not the one who destroyed the seal in Barlour City?!"
, Gomory turned towards Sevrin who sat bound in his spot. The older man representing the DHO spoke again,"It's already been determined that he was possessed, however we have brought him here because the bulk of our forces are already here, including research, so we felt it more efficient to bring him here to have his body and mind tested and examined, to see if we can learn more of Vega from whatever may be left behind in him. He claims to have no memory, and it appears that he had been possessed for quite some time before the events of Barlour City, so there is much to g
ather about this case"[/color], he explained. Gomory looked away with annoyance before turning back to the council,"Very well... But we should not delay in stopping Vega's growth. Bring it up again, those visual reports"
, she demanded. With little problem, some of the people in the back hit a few buttons, before the large screen at the end of the hall lit up, cycling through stills of video feed, showing a black hooded figure."You say these were taken over the course of the week yes?"
, she inquired. Everyone nodded."Notice how the lines on his form become brighter and more numerous... Furthermore, Kushiel, you claim he was more akin to a wraith when you saw him in the Jungle? He can maintain a solid form now. He is growing stronger, and fast"
, she emphasised this."I know not what manner of demon he is, and it is my job to recruit demons, so I know just about every kind there is to know... So the fact that I don't know what he is, is what concerns me. He must be dealt with as soon as possible",
she seemed more concerned about him than the other threat. She seemed almost frantic, like she may know something the others don't, but whatever it was, she wasn'tcompletely sure of it."Of course, naturally... But let us not ignore the Nephilim that had appeared to us, I believe I have reports saying that another of their number were seen in a previous encounter prior to the Jungle, in the Undersky, as he went after another Seal. Though the Council should have that one under lock, if I am to believe these agents",
he noted, referring to the agents of the Council present, that being Lily, Fenn, and Akoni. "These Nephilim are powerful. Between them and Vega, I believe them to be the larger threat. At the very least, Vega's progress can be slowed, but these Nephilim are larger threats than him already"
, he argued."Alright, understood... Then I will assign Gomory with hunting down Vega, while Kushiel will be assigned with the Nephilim. Report regarding the two will be sent to you both first and foremost. I'd like you all to agree that all of our forces will be deployed to go after one or the other, so please assign them wisely, and try not to let bias cloud your judgement"
, the DHO representative set the terms, it appears the two have agreed to this."Now then... There is much to be done, even today, and some not yet done from yesterday. Unless there are questions, this meeting is adjourned. We will hold yet another next week to discuss developments, now then, dismissed"
, with that said, Kushiel's wings spread and he disappeared into the clear blue sky ahead, while Gomory turned, shrouding herself in darkness before disappearing entirely.NOTE: Missions are being added and worked on. For the time being, enjoy your stay at Aquapolis. It's also actually a popular tourist spot for the relaxing scenery and unique festivals they hold here. Everyone has their own room also.
