Derek S Story 4

Shadowcaller säger:
Okay… err… this is shortly after the battle is over. You have been ordered to locate yourself at the commanders office.
Both pitlords are dead, one thanks to you and the Vhuul demons are either dead or have fleed back wherever they came from.
You are being escorted by two other demon hunters, one of them is Marius, the other is a silent guy you only know as Sern, he is a lot of meetings with the commander, despite just being a sergant.
(And I need to eat… brb.)
Aegnor säger:
heh
I'd have wanted to see the reactions to a burning guy without weapons or body hair running out of the building
Shadowcaller säger:

I'm sure they were shocked
"is your hair on fire?"
(Anyway…)
After being silent about it for some time, Marius have commented about your lack of hair, Ithari hunter's humor is often considered to be a bit inappropriate.
Aegnor säger:
Derek comments back about his body being too valuable to hide under a furry mess.
Shadowcaller säger:
"Really? So you are going to start doing full-body shave every day from now on then?"
Aegnor säger:
'I guess I have to give you lesser people a chance with the girls so I'll let it grow again.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Where have you been hiding these girls exactly? In your hair?"
Aegnor säger:
'Indeed. But things got a bit too hot and they had to take a walk to cool down.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"They gave you up for the pit lord, didn't they?"
Aegnor säger:
'It tried, but I was just too hot for it. It got burned.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"And so did you apperently."
Sern coughes as they are almost at the commaders office.
Aegnor säger:
'I wonder if I'm being called here for a public apology about the redecoration of the officer's lounge…'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Maybe they prefere it this way? It's sure is easier to move around."
*it
Aegnor säger:
'Much more spacious.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Quite, I wonder if they are going for the Derek style in the rest of the barracks now."
You now stand outside the commanders door.
Sern: "Will you two shut up? This is important."
He opens the door and you find Arian and the captains waiting for you inside. Arian is an quite old hunter, his hair is a mix of grey and black but his composture is still the one of an Ithari. "Welcome."
"Marius, you can leave the room now that you have escort your friend here. Sern, you know why you will stay."
Sern suddenly appears a bit nervous.
Marius: "Remember I want a cut of the profit you make of your design style…" Then Marius leaves the room, Sern closing the door behind him.
Arian: "So, what do you have to say Derek? I'm sure you know why you are here?"
Aegnor säger:
'Let's say I have a pretty good guess?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Which is?"
Aegnor säger:
'I seem to have gotten the devil's luck at the last possible moment. Literally.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Tyril, can you show him the list?"
Tyril nods and gives him a list of names, locations and… powers.
He can find his own name there including Wren's, Hectors and Goldie's.
Aegnor säger:
With what powers?
Shadowcaller säger:
Hector have some type of earth control powers, Wren can make solid things out of shadow and Goldie is apperently the child of a (now dead) bard with charming powers.
You can as you might realize, make things immobile.
Aegnor säger:
'So.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You have any idea what that list id Derek?"
*is
Aegnor säger:
'A bunch of children?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You could say so yes. It was given to Wren and Hector by a demon no less."
Aegnor säger:
'Why?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"We think that it wishes to protect you actually, or at least thats our theory."
Aegnor säger:
'…right. Well, to me this looks awfully much like a hit-list.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"It is a hit-list… see the list was ordered by the demon sultan Onyx, do you know the story of the children?"
Aegnor säger:
'Not really. Bunch of people who inherit demon powers.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yes, and these powers where taken from this demon sultan."
"And now it wants them back, at any cost."
"This attack was only the beginning Derek, you know what happend at Sindra? In the church of light?"
Aegnor säger:
'Heard some rumours of a massacre. But of course we aren't actually told anything.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Jared, the healer was one of the children. He was killed by what we belive to be a deciver demon."
"This list have been taken from that demon, but it's still out there."
The captains appears a bit suprised by this information.
"We are going to stand here all day aren't we Arian? Why can't you just spill it out for the poor… man. Why can't you just tell him what he needs to do hm?" Sern suddenly says in a to him very uncharacteristically manner.
Arian gives Sern a look "You told me you would wait…"
Sern: "Wait? You are boring me here Arian, let's just cut to the chase." Sern turns to you smiling, he seems like a completely different person. "You need to go to the demon gate in the Saron mountains, enter it and kill the demon sultan."
*the demon sultan onyx
"That is the only way you can survive."
Aegnor säger:
'Oh, okay.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Even his voice sounds like it have undergone a change.
Arien sigh "I need everyone except me, Sern and Derek to leave to room now."
The captains follows the order somewhat regretfully.
Sern closes the door behind them.
Sern: "Any questions… mortal?"
Aegnor säger:
'Hm. So I go and kill a demon sultan. Sounds pretty straightforward to me.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Yes, it is. A simple plan, of course you can't do it alone. Onyx sactuary can only be entered by himself… or any living beings that shares his essance."
"Which would include you and all the other children."
Aegnor säger:
'All right. So, one question…'
'How the am I supposed to kill a demon sultan?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"A very good question, don't you think Arian?" Sern glances over to the old hunter with a wide grin.
Arian: "You arn't going to do it alone… and while the journey to Saron mountains might be hard, this is actually possible to do."
"Half of Onyx power is divded between you and the other children and he seems to have weakened even more lately with the loss of his power."
"He will be alone as not even other demons can enter that sanctuary."
Aegnor säger:
'Right, sounds great.'
'May I ask what you're going to do to a bunch of pit fiends waking up the entire order and almost assassinating a group of people under our protection?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"This is only a sign that Onyx is getting more desperate Derek, we are calling in reinforcments from other orders since it appears that Onyx is intending to use all the force he have to kill the children."
Sern: "Poor Onyx misses his old power, he was once one of the greatest Demon Sultans of our time, it was said he planned to even crown himself 'demon god' but then he fell on the goal line. Now he wants everything back…"
Aegnor säger:
'Oh, and what's this thing?' He motions at Sern.
Shadowcaller säger:
Arian sigh "I'm sorry you had to see this… this is my not so faithful advisor. Don't belive I trust him Derek, but much of the information he have provided me have showed itself to be true. This is Sern really, but he is currently possessed by the demon vizer Marduk…"
Sern: "Yes, exactly. Even your order have use of the information I can provide, especially when it's free." Sern smiles again.
(Demon possessed humans can't use any special powers.)
Aegnor säger:
Derek doesn't look very approving but doesn't comment on it. 'Right. Anything else?'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Well, do you need anything Derek? You are going to need to leave soon. The king have somehow found out that the demons attacked Derim beacuse of the children."
Aegnor säger:
'Somehow… Well, some supplies would be great.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Anything you can think of, demonic artifacts, transportation… I will try to provide you with everything you need."
Sern: "Oh, and don't think you can handle Onyx on your own, either you need to kill some of the other children, or you need them to join you."
(the order have healing artifacts, light artifacts, standing-still-insibility artifacts…)
Aegnor säger:
(Yay.)
Shadowcaller säger:
"So do you need anything Derek? I am very sorry I can't gratulate you for singel handely lure that pit lord away, but time is running out."
Aegnor säger:
'I suppose I'll need a bunch of things. I'll need to take a look in the storages and get ready.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Arian nods "…oh, and you can't mention Marduk to anyone."
Aegnor säger:
'Yeah.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"We don't need inner conflicts right now, I know it seems wrong of me to take information by a demon, but we have been able to save many thanks to his information. But I always check it first, I'm not stupid."
Sern: "Sure you aren't… I can be very faithful when it comes down to it actually."
Arain sigh "Well, go to the armory then and tell the officer there you are… well I'm sure you can come up with something. Just say I sent you."
Aegnor säger:
'All right.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"You are dismissed…"
Aegnor säger:
He leaves for the armory.
Shadowcaller säger:
On the way there he meets Marius "So, are they going to remake the whole head quarters?"
Aegnor säger:
(Did he get the list?)
Shadowcaller säger:
(yeah.)
Aegnor säger:
'Apparently they didn't like my choice for decor after all. I'm off for a 'special mission'.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Really? It looked so ugly they need to send you away? Do that 'special mission' by any chance include 'growing your hair'?"
Aegnor säger:
'Might be.' He puts a finger on his lip in a mock mysterious gesture. 'All very hush-hush.'
Shadowcaller säger:
Marius smiles "Right, so how long will you be away then?"
(Happy? >.>)
Aegnor säger:
'Shouldn't take long.'
Shadowcaller säger:
He shrugs "Okay, I guess I will you when you return then, sadly I have been sent on a mission on my own, something with undead actually."
Aegnor säger:
'G'luck then.'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Good luck to you as well. See you later…" Marius waves as you need to go in different directions.
Aegnor säger:
He waves back.
