XymmerickThorodan: :-:A little over 200,500 years ago there was once a group set on multiverse domination called the Grand Knights. Bearing the coat of arms of what this world would deem as a hydra painted white they set off in ships as large as planets. The average grand knight dawned in white leather armour reinforced with metal plates and hoods with white masks bearing strange emblems. These men boarded large shields and heavy laser rifles which seemed to blast through anything. The king of such was called Tyrus of the Grand Knights, obsessed of finding the means of eternal control of making endless lands as his home world of Gretyla was dying. Standing 8 ft tall the Grand Knights over towered most of the enemies they made. With over 50 years of terrorizing multiple worlds they finally fell upon the world of Sagaya. Sagaya was the home of the premier supporter of the multiverse alliance. Thusly they were prime targets. It was a sunny day as three children by the names of Atlas, Greedo, and Verkus were out at play. There were rumours of bandit raids. The defense force of Sagaya is unaware as suddenly an appearance of three Grand Knight Ships appear. The Grand Knights stop all communications.-: (G.K. General Fleet Ship 5, Uto) “Finally, the Alliance will learn not to interfere. Commence attacks.” (G.K. Flank Ships 5.1 and 5.2) “Aye General Uto commencing assault.” :-Suddenly thousands of pods plunge from the ships and land onto the planet’s surface as the soldiers climb out and begin to raze the buildings all around the planet. Meanwhile, the three friends are at play unaware.-: (Greedo) “Ohohoh. I’ma blow up this mail box!” (Atlas) “Why Greedo when you could decimate it.” (Verkus) “I’d rather let it be in one piece. Destruction is unnecessary.” (Greedo) “I don’t care!” (Atlas) “Indeed Verkus we’re only 13 so we might as well be reckless.” :-: And with that Greedo throws a cherry bomb in the mailbox and runs off and runs off followed by Atlas grinning and Verkus shaking his head. Suddenly, there’s an explosion as not only the mailbox blows up but also the houses near it. Greedo gawks and cheers:-: (Greedo) “I’m the man I blew up more than the mailbox.” (Atlas) “Wow…” (Verkus) “Actually that thing did!” ::Verkus points at an armoured being with white shield and laser rifle followed by six others like him. Suddenly an Alliance soldier comes and grabs the kids and pulls them away as a shoot-out breaks out between G.K. and alliance soldiers. In the Defense office, General and Minister Jeals is furiously shouting orders as chaos goes forward. (Jeals) “Where are the damned Alliance outpost recons when you need them.” (First Sgt. Nightly) “Sir…they were wiped out we just found out…” (Jeals) “dear Leotos (god of Sagaya) save us…..”
———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
CharlotteCarrendar:- High in orbit, General Uto was watching the waves of pods land upon the surface of Sagaya and commence the raids, that would see the alliance fall swiftly, due their lack of early warning systems. Drumming his claws upon his arm rest of his command chair, a red beacon appeared on a monitor, which rose up before him, as he passed his hand over a glyph. (?) “General, mission so far successful, we have them on the back foot. Permission to fire laser cannons into the main infrastructure, and disable their power systems.” The wavering image, which was shrouded in a blue halo, waited in silence, as behind him you could hear the roar of jet engines, and the screams of millions. The General folded his arms, and grinned from beneath his hood. “Granted.”- The Officer saluted, as the image vanished, and the monitor dropped back down. “There will be no one to stop us this time.” <3>

XymmerickThorodan: ::-:: Minister Jeals is pacing furiously as a Sgt. Nightly gets a status:-: (Sgt. Nightly) “Minister Jeals! Report sir!” (Jeals) “Spare no detail.” (Nightly) “Sectors 4-10 are gone. 3 is in turmoil and 2 is preparing for siege.” (Jeals) “And sector 1?” (Nightly) “Sector 1 the back water sector sir has 3 survivors…children…” (Seals) “Bring them here to sector 0 at once.” (Nightly) “Yessir! Squad Ito bring those 3 youth here.” (Ito Squad leader over comm) “Yes Sgt Nightly.” :-: Suddenly Atlas, Greedo, and Varkas are dragged by six armored soldiers towars sector 0 the capital:-: (Greedo) “No! they’re going to try me as a capital defender whahaha!” (Atlas) “Damn gov’t got sour and is now even executing kids.” (Varkas) “You two dolts shush. We’re being escorted to refugee camp.” (Greedo & Atlas) “…………….” : Suddenly on the way there is a cross fire as suddenly varkas, greedo, and Atlas are cast aside in the mud. Soon, a soldier directs the children away as soldier after soldier falls::-::

CharlotteCarrendar:- The communication rooms on board the fleets of the Grand Knights, were alive with chatter, as the radio operators, fed through reports of damage, causalities, and downed infrastructure. The Officer who had received the go ahead, to fire the laser cannons, at the planet’s power station grids, was standing behind the controls, as six junior officers worked feverishly, to get the co ordinates right for a strike on multiple locations. Officer Fleg, turned in her swivel chair, with the headset on her ears. “Cannons primed. Four, Lever, Foxtrot, Navel, Alfa. All systems on standby.” The bridge officer, gave the nod, and the crew all turned back to their monitors, all engaging keys into the control dash, then on the mark, they all turned the keys. The force of the eruption of the lasers, was enough to jolt all ships in the vicinity, as beams of light criss crossed space, and on the surface, massive explosions could be seen, sending up plumes of toxic dust into the atmosphere below. <3>

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

XymmerickThorodan: :-:There’s a sudden jolt of lights in the distant sky as screams are heard and Minister jeals face pales as horror became reality. The planet was being razed. Suddenly, Sgt. Nightly taps Ministers Jeals Shoulder:: (Nightly) “Minister they’re here.” (Jeals) “Thank Leotos. Any other survivors….” :-:Nightly shake shis head. Jeals nods dishearteningly. Greedo, Atlas, and Varkas are brought forward.:: (Jeal) “Ah hello boys…” (Greedo) “Shut it you old coot you got our only home destroyed.” (Atlas) “We saw people getting killed. Did we suffer through that civil war 9 years ago only to get the alliance to turn its back on us?” (Varkas) “Minister Jeals…did the Alliance forsake us?” (Jeals) “We don’t know. But what we do know. At all costs you three must survive. You three must tell of our tragedy…and hold onto the secret of this box” :-: nightly hand varkas a black box with a crimson crystal shaped emblem on it:-: (nightly) “This is what the Grand Knights want. Now you will be escorted off world. Good luck…” :-: suddenly sector zero gets reports of sector two decimated as a riot of laser fire breaks out in the front of zero sectors gates.:-: (Jeal) “So it begins…” :-: nightly rushes the three children off into the secret escape passage:-: (Jeal) “God Leotos…guide those kids to our salvation….”

CharlotteCarrendar: – Once again, we see General Uto, staring down at the red halo that is engulfing the planet, and soon as the dust clouds rise, the sun will not be able to penetrate through, and thus the planet will fall into a false winter, which was exactly the General’s plan. Unfolding his arms, he rose from his command chair. Hands behind his back, he walked along a narrow walkway, over the top of hundreds of officers that were all directing pods and troops, to further the ground assault. “This will be a day, long remembered by the Grand Knights.”- Another officer ran up towards the General, only slowing when in a few feet, his heart pounding as he had the latest reports from the surface. (?)”All power systems are now disabled. Their attempts to fire back have been thwarted, General.”- The officer saluted, while the General stared out the observation window. “Now…it’s a matter of time, before they perish, to their own lack of heat and power.” The General brought up his right fist, clenching it, the dark scar across his eyelid and brow visible. <3>

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

XymmerickThorodan: ::Minister Jeal stares at the clouded dusty sky:: (Jeal) “This is the end eh?” ::He looks down as soldier after soldier who put their trust in the alliance fell and he growls clenching his fist:: (Jeal) “curse you alliance….” ::Then suddenly the house of the minister is hit with a beam of light. Sector 0 almost gone as Nightly escorts the 3 youths with 5 other men to the last available pod suddenly they’re ambushed and fire begins Nightly get the children into the pod and sets coordinates as one of the 5 soldiers gets in the driver’s seat- (Nightly) “Make sure they make it” (Soldier) “Yessir.” Suddenly nightly is shot down along with the other four as the pod takes off but gets shot many atime. The pod breaks the atmosphere in mere seconds before the driver dies leaving the children stranded amongst the 3 giant G.K. cruisers.::: (Greedo) “we’re done for…” (Atlas) “Damn Aliance…” (Varkas) “This can’t be it…..”

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

CharlotteCarrendar:- The mission thus far successful, General Uto decides to go and relax in his chambers, with a good whiskey, and await the final reports, of the dust clouds settling, before landing of the fleet can take place. But just as he is about to step off into a lift, a member of the flight deck, comes over to the rail, and calls down. (?) “Sir, we have picked up life forms in one of the escaping ships. They are in range of our tractor beam. Orders, General.” Stopping for a moment, he reaches up to stroke his scar with his index finger. “Hmm. Bring it in safely. Land it. Any or all life forms are to be brought to the holding cells, where they will be test subjects in a new vaccine. Last lot died within minutes of injection.”- The officer saluted, and ran back to alert the control officers, as the General entered the lift, and the doors closed quietly. <3>

XymmerickThorodan: ::The three youth crying furiously as a silent glow from the box grows bright. They watch in amazement as a voice comes from within:: (Voice) “fear not. For your path holds your revenge….but you must pursue such with a iron heart..” ::the voice stops as the three boys stare silently out the windows at the large ships:: (greedo) “I want to kill them” (Atlas) “I wish they didn’t exist” (Varkas) “For once I agree with you two..Destruction is necessary…everyone must pay…” ::The three nods as suddenly a mark of a skull forms on their left cheek:: (Atlas) “From here on out we will be the Prophets of sin. We will train to become stronger and wage endless carnage for the loss of our home” ::Greedo and Varkas nod in silence as the ships loom over them.::

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

CharlotteCarrendar: – Down in General Uto’s chambers, the door slides open with a hiss, and he enters it slowly. The light of the room is blue, and at the back of the room, there is a door that leads to a special holding room. The temperature of the room is -15 degrees Celsius, and though the General is wearing special protective clothing against such extremes, he still shows a slight grey hue to his skin. Pressing in a special sequence of digits, the door slides back, to reveal a child, a teenager, suspended in a special fluid. His hair waving about, blonde, though the blue light of the room has his entire body glowing strangely. General Uto walks around the tank slowly, every so often, reaching up to touch his scar. He speaks softly, unusual for a man of his station. “One day…my son, I will have the cure, and you will be the next heir to the Universe.” General Uto stood in silence, staring at his son, while out on the flight deck; the tractor beam was drawing the disabled ship into the holding bay. <3>

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

XymmerickThorodan: ::The three boys silently stare as the ships came into view. Holding hands together they makes vows for their revenge:: (Atlas) “I will vow to leave no evidence.” (Greedo) “I will vow to destroy all I can” (Varkas) “I will vow to make them slumber in eternal darkness.” : Suddenly the box erupts with light again as the ships is begin drug via tractor beam. A sudden echo happens as a large burst comes inside the ships main tractor beam control. A crystalloid being stands there with her eyes glowing. She speaks her voice echoing to the Grand Knights:: (Crystaloid Being) “You shall not have them. They have a destiny you must not tarnish.” ::With that there is a sudden burst of light as the ships main engine suddenly just disappears.::

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

LadyBelz: One of the few who managed to make it to an escape pod before they were attacked, the cloaked figure huddled against the back wall of the pod as the pilots launched into the space. The others around were huddled in groups of two or three, even whole families who hoped to not be separated, took up every inch of space available. The pod vibrated as the rockets launched and the figured moved to a window to watch the land below disappear and the stars of space come into focus. The vibrations stopped and even the engine seemed to have quieted. But then there was another vibration, much more violent than the first and one of the pilots exclaimed they were caught in some kind of tractor beam. The escapees screamed or cried out in horror, while the cloaked figure radiated a sense of calm. There was a bright flash of light and then nothing. Stunned, one of the pilots stated that the tractor beam had been destroyed but their engines were no longer functioning. They were sitting ducks. A gloved hand moved to the slim item at hip level, taking comfort in its presence as they waited…

CharlotteCarrendar; – General Uto’s hand falls to his side, as there appears to be something of a massive tremor of force hit his ship. The ship lurches violently, and the General taps into his comm. Link, only to see that the there is a woman created from some form of crystalloid compound. “You shall not have them. They have a destiny you must not tarnish.” The voice one to fill the head and travel through to the heart, as the image vanishes; the entire ship goes to black, the engine having vanished into thin air. General Uto barks down his command on the comm. Link. “SWITCH TO AUXILLARY POWER. FIRE UP THE GENERATORS! Open the shields, aft and allow the rays of the sun to power the boosters. THIS IS NO DRILL!”- The General was livid, as the ship switched to a strange red haze. A light signal of an emergency for the ship. The backup power source to his Son’s chamber comes on and the tank begins to bubble once more, his son unaffected. Growling, the General leaves his chambers, to return to the brig, to deal with this nuisance himself. On reaching the top rail, he shouts out. “Send distress signal to the fleet. I WANT THAT SHIP!” <3>

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

XymmerickThorodan: ::The crystalloid being disappears as a light appears and 5 alliance ships come and start blasting of cannons at the 3 GK ships. In the turmoil, other escape pods are blasted as well. Some manage to get sucked into the alliance ships to safety in the cross fire. The 3 boys watch in anger as other pods are left stranded and destroyed as they are sucked into safety.:: (Atlas) “Damn the alliance…” (Greedo) “Destroy…” (varkas) “Indeed. They must know our anguish…” :One of the GK ships with an engine suddenly gets hit with a hyper cannon hitting his left wing::

LadyBelz: Laser fire erupts around the small pod, causing the other escapists to scream anew. The figure under the cloak winced at the sound, wishing they would stop before a headache bloomed. A shadow crossed past the window and taking a look, it was discovered another ship was reeling them to safety. A small breath escaped from beneath the hood. Whether it was in relief or otherwise, remained to be seen…

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

CharlotteCarrendar: – Its pandemonium on the major GK craft with no engine. Chances of out running the five alliance ships are slim, what with one of the backup craft being hit below its left wing. “FUCK!!!”- the General swore, shaking his fist at the oncoming alliance fleet. “BASTARDS!!”- The head officer sees the imminent danger, and begs the General to allow evacuation, so that the crew may get to safety in the fighter jets. The General is horrified, knowing his son is in a specialized tank that simply can’t be transported in a fighter. The General is left with little choice and then barks in the intercom. “All crew evacuate!….You have two minutes….GO! That’s an order” The crew all flee their stations in a panic as the Commander goes to sit in his command chair, tapping in the sigils, as a large box comes up on display. A single tear rolls down his cheek, as he is now alone on the massive deck. He presses the red button, and a female voice comes on. “Self destruct, two minutes and counting.” – The General then brings up another screen, that has his son playing with his now dead wife, in a more civilized world and time. Out in the bays, the fleeing crews are madly boarding anything that flies, the ships like fireflies emerging from all loading bays, as the countdown continues. A slow smile appears on the General’s face, as he takes off his helm. “If my son cannot rule….their fate follows ours.”- The ship was about to explode, and take every ship in its vicinity with it. <3>
