@pyrogram Soz kinda long
"As long as the universe has existed, so has the struggle, the battle ringing through time, good and evil. The forces of evil, some malicious and power hungry clinging to their warped sense of morality believe they are right and we should kneel before their superiority."
"Some believe in extermination of those who are different, feeling they are the only ones worthy of survival."
"Some are desperate to become what they once were, they will scratch and claw, betraying whoever puts false hope in them, believing that they have the right to live again."
"and some only believe in one thing.......chaos"
"Sometimes they put aside personal differences, believing that they can achieve their own goals together, alliances can never last forever, sometimes alliances are broken, bridges burned, groups imploding from ego's or actions and sometimes they explode taking all those around them with it. We are witness, we are the forces of good."
"The Firebrands, Crassus Calco The Undead Emperor, born into Roman aristocracy he quickly excelled through the hierarchy, he traveled to foreign lands conquering as he traveled, rarely soiling his hands he left the combat chiefly to his vast army, he discovered secrets of dark arts and deception, upon his return to Rome he became the right hand made of Julius Caesar, he continued training in combat and dark arts, he eventual usurped the throne after secretly orchestrating the murder of Ceaser, he became the new emperor but not for long the same forces that he conspired with were eager to take him out of the picture, foreign witchcraft in his wine left him unable to fight back, he was pushed from the rafters in the ancient coliseum, circled by lions he attempted to draw his blade, only to find his belt empty, they began tearing him to pieces darkness approached but then.......... a hand reached out, he had a new calling."
"Satanus Lord of Evil, A disturbed Angel, A heart filled with darkness, A troubled mind and the power of the heavens to exploit, he fell to earth and so did evil and despair, he has been slowly trying to conquer the worlds for himself but the forces of light continually thwart his plans, he is now weakened but by no means weak, he will take any alliance needed and sooner destroy the world rather than see it fall into any hands other than his own, he is powerful and he has the desire to rule or burn."
"Sterling Boothe The Man Who Betrayed Humanity, No one really knows when the Firebrands really began but when they did their was a Boothe there to unite them, A family with a rich history of depravity and carnage to it's name, Sterling Boothe is the next in line and some would say the worst yet, he has traveled the world over searching for knowledge and power, he has committed crimes that could put a hundred men away for a hundred years but none that ever see a courtroom, why is he the way he is, was it the death of father, the life he was forced into at such a young age or how he seemed to embrace that life with open arms, all that matters it thats the way he remains."
"and Eldruid The Lord of Vampires, he is thousands of years old and one of the greatest warriors to ever unsheathe a blade, originally a soldier of faith driven insane by the burning of his village by neighbouring barbarians, he left alone slaughtered thousands of men, women and even children, his bloodlust and rage consumed him, he wasn't content with this carnage, he wanted the heads of those who gave the orders, he trekked on foot across empires killing indiscriminately and feasting on the flesh of whose he deemed 'food', by the time he had reached the empire he was different, paler and so much stronger, he was faster than any of his opponents army, tearing necks and drinking the blood, at this point he was no longer a man, the vengeance had made him something more, much more."
"but what is it they seek, why have they co-existed for so long, it is a doorway, to a dark dimension the dimension of the nameless ones, they have long searched for a way to free these creatures, creatures that turn human's into slaves and at long last it seems Eldriud and Eldriud alone has found the last artefact needed to free them, he has betrayed the rest of the Firebrands and plans to use it alone, to control the world."
"The forces of light stand in his way, soldier of fortune who risk everything to do what is right and absolve themselves of past sins, some will be chosen, champions of light selected for their bravery and fortitude and some will simply be willing, these warriors will decide the fate of history and the world!"
Angel finishes reading the page aloud to Zaniel, he looks over to him "No pressure or anything.", Angel joked but he still had a deep and painful tone to his voice, "We need a fast way to Japan. I'm pretty sure Boothe will already be there by the time we arrive. We need to be swift and we need strong, this is no longer a bounty, this is no longer about redemption, it's about saving us all from damnation."
Three hours later, Tokyo Japan
"Mr Boothe, I thought you had a tad more firepower than that." Calco materialised on one of Boothe remaining troop transports, A gathering of the worlds most dangerous mercenaries, men with a death wish, murderers without remorse or fear, "It was the boy, he's seems to have figured it out.", Calco looks shocked by the news, "An unexpected turn of events, was he with him.", Boothe looked confused by Calco's answer, "What do you mean by 'him'?", Calco responded "So it seems you are not as informed as I thought, the man from Olympus, the man once that was once poised for greatness, for royalty. He could have an army at his disposal.", Boothe looked down, "Not that he would need it. We can't go back now." They arrived at Eldruid's palace, "Alright gentleman, lock and load, here we go." The army surround the palace, Calco begins to coat the entire building in some kind of white glow, it begins to wear away at the door, "Alright men breach and clear.". The door is laced with powerful explosives, BOOM!*.
Eldruid sits alone in his throne room, he grasps a katakana at his side, he hears the explosion. "Rise my children." The entire floor of throne room breaks open as hundreds of undead samurai rise from the earth, he stands to his feet and unsheathes his blade, he walks over to a chest and incites a incantation, now that all the Firebrands were about to be in the immediate vicinity the portal could begin to open but it could not be disturbed, he opens the door leading to Calco and Boothe, "So do yo have anything else to add other than that hocus pocus outside." Boothe said to Calco, "Much more" Calco raised his arms high in the air as a whirlwind of locusts seemed to birth skeletal centurions out of thin air, "Now is the time to be alive huh Desi."
Meanwhile in the air above France
"I want you to know, if we don't make it out of this, it's been an honour to fight with you, partner." Angel looked over at Zaniel, Japan was eminent the day of judgement was here.
