@shield-maiden: (It was a fun post, bella. Don't worry about it!)
White cape fluttering from a cool mountain breeze, Leonel further descended from the sky, abandoning the heavens to hover just a foot above the rocky Sitian peak. Meeting her eyes, the Prince of Power found them blue like his - but different. Hers were electric blue. Vibrant and glimmering like a freshly polished gem. Yet his were deep blue. Tunnels of a darker shade for those who held his gaze to wander and get lost in. Different in shade, but identical in feel. Arms flexed and folded before his chest, his posture strong, regal and commanding, Leonel could see in Shield-Maiden's eyes a warrior's steel spirit and iron will - just like his.
"I am no Heracles, Achilles, or Odysseys, nor will I ever be"
The words - her voice - floated to his ears, and the Prince of Power could relate. He would never be like his father. Their ideologies clashed and their beliefs differed. He could never be like him, he didn't want to, and nor should he. Leonel was meant for a greatness and moral identity his father was too naive - too weak - for. So as he held Shield-Maiden's gaze, he imagined she too was meant for a greatness beyond the reach of Greek heroes past. "Nor should you", Leonel replied, "There's a saying I abide by. The weak focus on the strong, and the strong focus on strength. Be it literal or of character", and it seemed that in being wholly and unapologetically herself as opposed to like a Heracles and so on, Shield-Maiden abided by it as well. "As for our common enemy, it's none of them", the Prince of Power answered, his eyes never breaking from hers, holding her gaze like a warrior holds their sword. "Our enemy is the Abyssal Imperium. A powerful space-faring empire led by a tyrant as old as the universe itself".
"He - it - goes by the name of Nordok. But across the stars, many fear it's name so much they don't dare say it. They simply call it the Ancient One", Leonel paused. "And the Imperium's attacked Earth before. A cosmic empire hellbent on conquest with a leader who claims to own all of space won't leave Earth to it's devices forever. I want to destroy the Imperium. And if you value Earth, so should you. I'll need your help against them, Shield-Maiden. You and others I intend to find".
