Falling........that is what it feels like when you are breaking the plane of Heaven and going into the plane known as Purgatory. You feel like you are falling for hours but it only takes minutes. For Leonidas an archangel of the light, landing was the worst part. This was his 3rd visit to Purgatory. His first was as a regular Angel, just observing the area watching the souls of man before their judgment but those were better times. His second was not that pleasant and one he wished he could forget but constantly burned by it in the back of his mind.
Leonidas stands slowly being able to feel pain was not something an Angel was used to but in Purgatory he was flesh as were his demon counterparts. He grows nauseous and put his hands over his belly attempting to clam the felling. Get it together Leonidas he thinks to himself as he looks at the evil ridden city that was Purgatory.
The Sins have taken over, each claiming a part of the town for their own. They were known as sectors and they all had followers behind them. The good souls of man not being allowed to pass forced into hiding while the evil souls run freely gambling, fornicating and killing. The worst part was that if you die in Purgatory your soul died with you. Their is no heaven or hell for you, you will be nothing.
How could we have let this happen, our best have came and fallen and now we are the last hope thought Leonidas. His wings sprawled out wide and quickly closed back into his body. North, rendezvous with the rest of the Archs is in the Northern most part of Purgatory
Keeping in the shadows he began to head North. The spot know to the Archs as the Graveyard. That is where both Michael and Gabriel fell by the demonic hands of the one who fancied Pride killing Michael and Envy who slayed the warrior Gabriel. It was on Leonidas's second visit and the ambush had taken place while he was off searching for the soul of Lexi who would soon become an Arch. He was still a pupil of Michael and Gabriel back then. Learning his leadership from Micheal and the latter's skill with a blade.
With Michael's last breath he gave his sword to Leonidas and said "make this right, Leonidas" then his body vanished to nothing. Ever since then Leonidas has lead the new Archs. His humility has made him a humble leader and a sense of fearlessness has grown in his body.
The city street were full of mayhem. So hard he wanted to fight but he stuck to the plan and was the first to reach the Graveyard. Using his enhanced sight he sees that the area is clear and pulls out Michaels sword that is engraved with that name along the blade. A lonely tear falls from his eye onto it as he waits for the rest of the Archs. Looking at the blade he speaks softly saying "We will make this right my brother, we will make this right"
