Salem and Ivy
Salem walked casually towards a lone kitsune with a wide smile on her face. She stopped in front of her and stared at the Kitsune who had quickly stopped moving forward. Instead, she moved a few steps back. Salem spoke to her in a cool and confident voice as she slowly moved forward.
"Isabell, whatever are you doing here?"
Isabella quickly got ready to fight if she had to, she kept her eye on Salem, not taking her eyes off for a second.
"Salam. Just tell me what you want then leave me alone. I'm no threat to you."
Salam laughed and stepped closer. With a quick wave of her hand, a large black barrier rose up from the ground.
"Simple, I want you. I decided it is about time I take your spirit orb and claim it for my own."
With that said Salem clicked her fingers and Ivy stepped out of the shadows and into the barrier. Isabell readied herself, she knew she couldn't beat them both but she had to try. She wouldn't let them have her spirit ball without a fight.
"Are you too afraid to fight me one on one Salem?"
Salem laughed and slowly stepped out of the barrier and watched from outside.
"Who said I was fighting you? No, Ivy doesn't need my help to take you down."
Ivy rushed forward to strike at the kitsune but Isabell quickly teleported away. She reappeared at her side and shout a powerful Fire Blight magic blast at her. Ivy deflected the blast easily with her wing before turning around and stabbed the ground. Vines shot up in seconds to grab Isabell but she used fire embodiment magic to escape.
"Not bad but you will have to do better than that if you want to survive."
Ivy began to glow with a dark red aura. Her sword shortened to a simple short sword then she teleported and reappeared behind Isabell who raised her tails to block the incoming sword attack. The sword became transparent and went straight through the tails before becoming solid again and striking her back. Isabella screamed in pain and quickly teleported away.
"That was a cheap trick, it won't work a second time!"
Ivy laughed and held out her hand.
"I don't need to. I have just infused my dark aura into you which means, I control you now!"
Ivy clenched her fist and Isabella screamed, falling to the floor as the dark aura inside of her flowed through her body and caused her immense pain. With that Salem walked up and grabbed the kitsune by the neck and began to search for the spirit orb. The spirit orb was disguised as a simple Chinese bell on a long red ribbon. She threw Isabell to the side and laughed.
"You've lost. From now on, you work for me."
Salem held out her hand and infused dark magic into the spirit orb. Isabell screamed loudly as her form began to shift and change forcibly turning her into a one-tailed dark fox. With that Salem threw the spirit orb in the air and shot it with magic. The spirit orb disappeared and with that Salem walked away with Ivy and the dark fox following.
Back in the Land of the Dead, Salem had gathered Ivy, Prim and Oshikuru together in a meeting. The dark fox sat beside the three staring at Salem as she tossed the spirit ball back and forth from her hands. It spoke telepathically as it watched. 'Can you please not throw my spirit orb like that. If you drop it it will be seriously fatal to my health' Salem laughed loudly before throwing the spirit orb and this time letting it fall towards the floor. Seconds, before it smashed the first quickly, used its telepathic powers to levitate the orb and save it last minute.
"See Isabell, even if I did drop it, you were there to stop it from smashing. Do you really think I would let such a useful little pawn like you go? No, not yet. You have a long journey ahead of you."
She stood herself up and spoke again.
"Julia is getting close, she almost has everything she needs to do the summoning, so I think before she gets a chance to bring in her little pawns I think we should bring some of our own in. They will be useful and help us achieve our goal much faster. Prim, Ivy, Oshikuru, have you three gathered the materials I requested?"
When all three nodded their head Salem smiled. In that case, they were ready. She walked over to a large cliff which had a wonderful view of the Land of the Dead. There was plenty of space here for her to do the summon. Quickly, Salem clicked her fingers and decided to check out the list one last time.
"Let's see....No.....no.......too boring......these ones will do."
Five files floated in front of her as she looked them over. They all seemed relatively powerful. They easily fit under each category, able to survive in the world, willing to work in a team if they had to and was willing to fight for their life. They would all be useful pawns for her to use.
"Raven, Orochi, Vergal, Orion and Serathea I summon you all to the world of Azroh!"
The summoning circle glowed brightly, and soon enough a huge flash of light appeared. Soon after stood the five servants that she had chosen to summon. She checked them out slowly before giving a small nod satisfactory. The summon had turned out to be a success. She just hoped that these five servants of hers would not disappoint.
