The Gods of Creation and Destruction

No Caption Provided

In the beginning the Gods of Creation and Destruction came together to construct the Multiverse and determined the limits and boundaries for each specific universe within the multiverse. They are composed of both "Good and Evil" aspects that came together to create a Multiverse with perfect balance. In order to protect the balance across the multiverse, Observers, Watchers and Seekers--Universal Gods, were birthed to record the history of the Multiverse. Because the power the of gods was so immense some of it lingered in the universes to be used and harnessed by their residents.

This power lead to the emergence of "Mutants" in some universes, "Witches" in others, Metas and "The God Touched" as well. These universes were blessed with abilities and powers beyond the comprehension of mortals but they were given these gifts so that they would never forget the life that was given to them by the Gods.

After the Multiverse was established the "Gods of Creation and Destruction" began "reading" the stories through the eyes of their Universal children. Eventually too many residents of the universe began discovering Multiverse and began jumping back and forth across the "veil" without consequence. In one such incident was a universe that developed way too quickly, it's residents were jumping across the multiverse without consequence, Universal Anomalies were created; along with alternate realities. The boundaries of the multiverse seemingly did not affect this Universe--Prime.

The Gods of Creation and Destruction got together to discuss what must done to keep the universe in check, but they disagreed on the best course of action. Finally one of the more Progressive Gods decided it was better to place the Universe into a "Dead" status and craft one in it's likeness. Once the Prime U was placed into "Dead" status it's development and growth was halted, causing many of it's universally aware residents to jump universes before it ended.

The Universal Judges

No Caption Provided

The Universal Judges are the immortal children of the Gods of Creation and Destruction. Despite appearing human they are essentially concentrated cosmic energy with immense power, they cannot be killed (Unless the Gods kill them or they kill each other).

The Universal Judges are composed of four beings: A High King and Queen and a Regular King and Queen. With the High King having absolute veto ability over courses of action. These positions aren't gender specific considering the beings are composed of cosmic energy.

The King and Queen will cast judgement only on specific actions that go against the interest of specific universes and Timelines. It was the King and Queen who determined that "Reality-M" Should enter dead status following it's creation from the Prime-U.

The High King and Queen will cast judgement on universes that go against interest of the entire multiverse. Such as the killing of a Universal God, Multiple interferences from outside Universes, Unauthorized Access to the "Library of Information". The High King and Queen can veto the King and Queen's power and handle any situation themselves, should they choose to and are to be 100% impartial. The Judges are usually heralded by either their Bailiff or Executioner ( Who are granted the ability to interfere) but never both, once a Judge has made a decision it can only be undone by petitioning a God of Creation. The Judges typically rule in 4 manners, "Primed for Destruction", "Dead" , "Removal of Gifts, and Unfounded"

Primed for Destruction- (Quick Process) Means effective immediately the Universe should be destroyed for infractions against the Multiverse.

Dead Status- (Slow Process) Stop the growth and development of the universe. With this ruling life will end it's cycle resulting in the destruction of sun's universe wide.

Removal of Divine Gifts- The judgement calls for the Gods of Creation to remove their gifts left at the point of creation for a period of time.

Unfounded- The Judges concerns were no warranted.

The Library of Information

No Caption Provided

The Library of information exist on the edge of the Multiverse at the "Court of Courts" where the judges live. It is a multiverse archive that contains all the knowledge in the universe, and was passed down to the Judges by the Gods of Creation and Destruction.

The books contain knowledge about every Universe both new and old, events and even books about specific people from life to death. It is maintained by Universal Librarians, Gods created for the sole purpose of maintaining the Library, they are to have knowledge on every known book in the library (Save for the books of people still living), they are also forbidden from leaving the Library for fear of information leak.

Because of the sensitive information contained at the Library no one is permitted to access the library without a library card. A library card will be issued by the Librarian only after it is approved by a judge. The card will grant clearance to information only on the universe the holder is native to. Under no circumstances is anyone able to read a book about a person still living--even the judges. There was one such incident of a Universal God changing the outcome of a story in the Library which was found to be the cause for the immense strength gathered by a Prime Universe Ninjan.

Rules

1. This is a "Roaming" Thread meaning the actual Court of Courts is never physically in the same location. Once your character has been there, they can always be transported to it regardless of where it is provided they have a Library Card. I've placed it in NYC for the time being.

2. Feel free to use the Library, it contains "all the knowledge" in the multiverse, but will only allow your characters to read from books in the universe they're native to. (I will take exceptions for story purposes). Please don't make post about reading books about characters that are still living.

3. You are permitted to create a Librarian, but they are not permitted to leave the Library. (Though this is set to change, I have plaaaaaaans)

4. I'm currently looking for people to fill the roles of High King, King, and Queen. These are not gender specific you could have a male character and be the Queen. However, there are only three spots you'll have to Pm me your character's info and I'll review it.

5. The Universal Judges are NOT to involve themselves in any conflict that doesn't involve the multiverse. Meaning the High King cannot stop Grimmwald in the Purge, the only characters that have the authority to interfere in any universe are the Bailiff and the Executioner which every judge has. (Yes you might need to create more characters)

6. Any questions pm me. Or my @shanana or @catalina_liafador accounts.

(Cont. from Daytonville)

“WOAH!” She gasped as she walked into the floating castle, the blue energy fading from her body as she put Star down who’s fur was all ruffled from the sudden flight. The moment his paws touched the ground, his tail went in between his legs as a soft whimper was heard. “Star, come on, don’t be scared, look!” She pointed at the books, A LOT OF BOOKS! More than the library Mari took her back home! There had to be a bajillion books.

She didn’t hear anything, it was super duper quiet! Her big blue eyes wandered at all the different books. They were different colors and sizes and some even looked really old and some really new! “I wonder if they have ‘Green Eggs and Ham’.” She whispered, not wanting to be too loud as she walked through the seemingly endless aisle of bookshelves. But she walked as if she knew where she was going and in some way… she did…

I need THAT one
I need THAT one

She could feel a pull of an all too familiar energy coming from one area, almost as if it was calling to her. Then.. she saw it. A book, on a really high shelf that looked really new and never opened with dark crimson leather covering. Her big blue eyes blinked a couple of times as her head tilted back, trying to see how high up it was. “Star, I need THAT one.” She pointed as a blue hue of energy surrounded the lower portion of her body. Floating up to the book she grabbed it. OMPH IT WAS HEAVY! With a one, two THREE she managed to pull it out only to lose her balance and fall flat on her back.

“Ooowwwww.” she groaned as she rubbed her head while sitting up, looking down at the book she grabbed. Her nose scrunched and her eyes squinted, the title of the book was written too fancy for her to be able to read it. Opening the book it was more clear of what the title was. “The Red…” she stopped, her lips making various shapes, trying to figure out how to say the next word. “Car...dee… nail… Queen! The Red Cardeenail Queen!” And under those words… a name, one that the Tiny Pettis knew all too well. “Ziccarra Liafador…” she whispered softly to herself. The feeling of a ball rising up in her throat. “...mommy…”

"Start talking!"

Following the energy trail left behind by her little sister, Catalina teleport into the fabled Court of Courts located above NYC. Just the atmosphere was different, the amount of pressure given off by an entire building full of Universe "Gods"nearly forced the Catalan Contessa to the ground.

Unlike Tassi and Maya, Cat was unable to to tap into Faore's power when she wanted, The Prize Fighter remained untamed and unpleasant to work with. Tapping into the power bestowed by the Mind Lavaliere the oldest daughter of Ziccarra stalked the Court of Courts discreetly calling out to her sister and her furry companion.

She was sure her presence was noted, however she generate very little energy; energy that would be deemed inconsequential to the beings that reside here.

Moving past a clearing, that's when she saw it--the Library. A seemingly endless room with bookshelf's stretching for miles full of books. "Holy....sh!t" She said eying the variety of "beings" that dwell in the library. It appeared to be a normal library to the untrained eye, however the details were in the reflections from things like water and chrome surfaces. Everyone in this library appeared human, but there weren't. Most of the inhabitants already knew that the library default foreign species to the likeness of the universe they were from. (Cat see's only humans because she entered the Library on Earth, if Addison had entered she'd see only Ninjans etc)

No Caption Provided

"Hello" A woman called out from behind Cat causing to jump forward before turning around in a fighting stance. The woman smiled before eying Cat's fighting stance with indifference. "Uh...I'm..."

"I know"The woman said extending her hand to usher Cat through the library. "I've placed your book on the shelf twice now. Please be advised that you are not allowed to check out any books without a library card. You're also not permitted to enter the "Non-Fiction section"

The woman's hand motion to the books on the right side of the room, though the appeared to be free access; the books were actually safe-guarded by some sort of wall.

The librarian motioned for Cat to follow her, which she did right to the row Tassi and Star were on. "If you need anything else please don't hesitate to ask."

No sooner than the woman exit, Cat's eyes turned to both Tassi AND Star, her jaw tightening with disappointment. "Seriously kid what the sh!t, what did I tell you about running off without letting someone know!" Cat hiss within reason for a library.

@catalina_liafador: @tassiana_pettis:

The Prince of Power soared, and the gates of ordinary space-time bent around him, giving way to the hyper-spatial bulk. A step there took one farther than a sprint in ordinary space-time. In an instant, Leonel'd left the warmth of Daytonville for the home of those who promised his family's Ragnarok. Upon his arrival, the air cleared and he felt a rising tide of energy - of cosmic divinity - unlike anything he'd ever seen. It was the High Queen's energy grown tenfold. Mortals, he imagined, would be crushed by the pressures here, as though the cosmic library were like the bottom of man's sea. But Leonel paid no mind to the readers and librarians around him until approached by one.

"Don't make a habit of this"

A woman.

Like Leonel's cape, there was a faint glow upon her skin. Her hair crackled like a holy flame, and when she spoke - her voice rolled with the cry of many thunders. "There. They are there", the woman said, her face a mask of serenity as she nodded towards a corner of the library he'd yet seen. "Thanks", Leonel returned, brow furrowed at the woman before him. She was human, yet the energy ebbing and flowing in her flesh and hair was anything but. Doesn't matter, he dismissed, turning away to glide towards both his sisters, and Star. Around him, the library felt strange and unknown, yet familiar somehow. It was here that the stories of the dead were written and read. And one such story - of their mother, Ziccarra - pulled at the heart of his youngest sister, Tassiana. "Tassi", Leonel sighed, relief washing over him at the sight of Catalina with Tassiana.

With a subtle nod Catalina's way, Leonel returned his attention to Tassiana. "Don't make a habit of this", he scolded, his brow heavy with worry as much as severity. "This is dangerous. Something could've happened to you. Anyway, let's go home. This is no place for you, or us for that matter". Not yet at least.

@catalina_liafador: @king_leo:

Tassi sat on the ground, books stacked up around her that made up members of her family. Jamie Liafador, Anne Liafador, Isadora Liafador, Enrique Liafador, Mark Knightfall… they neatly sat next to her as Star laid next to her. But right now, in her lap, was the book with the story of her mother. You would think, a book composing the complex history of her mother would be difficult for the five year old to read. But the books adjusted themselves to the reader’s language and reading capabilities. There was even pictures!

Tassi sat silent, a frown on her face as she read how abuelita and abuelito werent nice to mommy and it made Tassi really sad. Mommy got scary too. Mommy did bad things. She hurt a lot of people, even her friend Zoe more than once. It wasn’t until she read her with daddy that she saw how happy she had become. She didn’t even hear Cat walk up, it was her piercing words that caused Tassi to suddenly jump up, fumbling with the book as she closed it and held it close to her chest.

"Seriously kid what the sh!t, what did I tell you about running off without letting someone know!"

No Caption Provided

She had never heard Cat, or anyone speak like this to her before. Her little heart raced in her chest. She was caught off guard as she began fumbling with her words. “B-but So-s-” before she could finish Leo came walking up and began scolding her too.

"Don't make a habit of this This is dangerous. Something could've happened to you. Anyway, let's go home. This is no place for you, or us for that matter".

“N-no.” Tassi spoke, standing up, holding the book tightly in her little arms as she looked up at her big brother and sister, trying to stand her ground against the one's she had been looking up to since her birth. “You guys are scared and mad. I felt it back home but you guys never tell me anything. All you guys do is fight when something happen and I have to stay home when you guys fight and get hurt. I don't want you guys to get hurt. I-i don't want to loose you guys like I did with mommy. What if you don’t have to fight? What if no one has to get hurt?" She backed up until her back pressed against a bookshelf, her blue eyes watered with tears. "I'm not leaving. I'm going to talk to them because I don't want you guys to get hurt.”

@king_leo: @tassiana_pettis:

You have to...
You have to...

Leonel nearly startled Cat too, his powerful voice sending a chill through her body as 'jumped' in his direction. As he spoke to their youngest sister, Cat's cinnamon eyes dropped to the titles of the books Tassi had staged--victims.

With the exception of Isadora, all the books Tassi pulled were people who felt the murderous wrath of the 'old' Catalina. Tassi's pleading snatched Cat from the pit of self wallowing.

Cat's jaw tightened Tassi never ran away before, (Not that she knew) this felt like betrayal; if she handled it the way she wanted to she would've sent a palm right across her backside.

"Tassi..." Cat said squatting in front of the child pointing toward the crimson book Tassi clutched close to heart. "If mom where here what do you think she would do to you for running off? You too?" Her eyes bounce back and forth between the raven haired princess and the snow tinted canine.

"Truth is you wouldn't be talking back. She left me, Maya and Leonel in charge to take care of YOU, not the other way around" She said pointing back and forth between herself and Leonel. "The fact that you think you need to runaway and find solutions to our problems, breaking the trust we built, makes me believe I'm not doing what I'm supposed to for you both. You have to go live with daddy now."

It kind of hurt Cat to say it, the two of them had been through so much; but with Maricela needing tutoring with her darkness powers, and Tassi thinking it was ok to run off...it was becoming too much.

"Now, let's. go."

@tassiana_pettis: @catalina_liafador:

"This isn't your call to make"

While others read books on cosmic lore, Leonel's eyes fell squarely on Tassiana. She spoke back, and was defiant in spirit like all Liafador women. Had the circumstances been different, the Prince of Power'd even be proud. Instead, he stood with his brow scowling up a storm, ready to be the firm hand while Catalina played the soft heart. Though as Tassiana pleaded her case and Catalina surrendered to sorrow, Leonel relinquished the steel in his heart and eyes and sighed. "Tassi", he began, voice softer than before, but his tone no less serious, "This isn't your call to make. Least of all because you don't even know what you're getting yourself into. If you think you're being brave and strong by coming here with no idea about the situation at hand... you're not".

"You're being reckless".

"You're not only putting yourself in danger, but the entire family. Our job is to protect you. We haven't done the best job at protecting each other, but by coming here blindly, you're not making it any easier for us by running away like this". Uncrossing his arms, he held his youngest sister's gaze and his scowl faded. Facing Catalina, Leonel's eyes met hers with sympathy and his hand came to rest on her shoulder, just as their father's often did. "You and I need to talk soon", he said, "But for now, take Tassi's hand. We're going home".

Returning eyes to Tassiana, the Prince of Power asserted, "And that's final".

@king_leo: @catalina_liafador:

Her big sapphire eyes locked with her sisters opposing cinnamon eyes. Her family had taught her one thing, it was to stand your ground when you believed you were doing something right for the family, and that’s what she was doing, was she was taught by everyone. She was positive what she was doing was for the good of the family. Because what could be better than trying to stop them from doing things that’ll get them hurt? What would be better than to stop them from fighting and end up like mom… in a book.

But the words that Cat spoke, pierced into the five year olds chest as her head sank in between her shoulders, guilt came over her. She broke Cat’s trust. She began to question herself. She was just trying to help. To protect them. The youngest Liafador began to realize what she did was wrong. But before she could say how sorry and promise to never do it again and hug her sister… Cat’s last sentence cause the five year old physically stop breathing.

"The fact that you think you need to runaway and find solutions to our problems, breaking the trust we built, makes me believe I'm not doing what I'm supposed to for you both. You have to go live with daddy now."

The book slipped from her arms, landing with a loud THUDon the ground as Star’s head snapped up. Everything that Leo said didn’t even reach Hybrid Goddess ears. Her little head began to lightly shake back and forth as a look of panic quickly overcame her face. Her eyes were locked on Cat’s face. Trying to see if Cat was lying but… she wasn’t. She was well aware that Cat wasn’t her mother, but Cat had given Tassi a stability in her life that no one else was able to give her in her short yet crucial 5 years of life. Longer than her mother, than her father, than Zeon, than Maya, than anyone. While Cat wasn’t her mommy, she was the motherly figure in Tassi’s life that she looked up and wanted to be one day. Cat was Tassi's mom in her eyes, and the fact she didn’t want her anymore… it hurt more than when mommy tried to hurt her, because mommy was sick when it happened and didn’t realize what she was doing but Cat… she wasn’t sick… and she knew what she was doing.

No Caption Provided

The tears that built up in her eyes didn’t just fall, they ran like a river down her face and to the ground upon her mothers book as her face began to scrunch with pain. “Cat no!” She ran up to her and grasped her sister arm, not even paying attention to Leo. Her little chest began to rise up and down quickly, breathing with anxiety. “Cat please, I-I’m sorry!” she bellowed out, not caring who or what heard her pleads. “I promise, I’ll never do it again. I-I won’t even go outside anymore, I’ll stay inside. I’ll do all the chores. I’ll be good, please Cat, I’m sorry don’t give me away like everyone else!”

It wasn’t that she didn’t love her dad. She loved daddy very much. But daddy had the habit of leaving when he promised he never would and being gone for years. Cat was gone from time to time, but she always gave Tassi a necklace when she left, to let Tassi know she was always coming back. She felt safe with Cat and always put Tassi first even in the times when things were really scary when Cat was really sick. She knew Cat loved her and she knew she would never do anything to hurt Tassi and would never make promises she couldn’t keep. But now… she didn’t want Tassi anymore... she must have hated her. Tassi was right… no one wanted her… she was just something that was given around like a used crayon that no one wanted. She was overwhelmed, she didn't want to go. She began huffing, her throat swelling with pain. “Please mom-!" She stopped herself, realizing what she accidentally blurted out from the tension that had built up inside her. She let Cat go and pulled away, quickly shifting her eyes away from Cat as she wrapped her arms around herself, embarrassed and worried of what she called Cat. Afraid she would hate her more. "I… I was just trying to protect you like you protect me. I-I didn’t want to lose you too. I'm sorry...” her head dropped unable to look at either of them as she closed her eyes, her lips quivering. She accepted defeat, and stood waiting for the two of them to take her and Star home.

@catalina_liafador: @tassiana_pettis:

What madness it was. Three gods making a scene in a library meant for the cosmic beyond. That in a place above even them, they acted as man did - victims to the woes of their emotional selves. Arms crossing over his chest, white cape crackling like an ivory flame, Leonel watched it all unfold. Catalina's heartache, and Tassiana's bawling. He held stern, a face of steel before the rush of tears in their eyes. But perhaps this was why he kept to himself and loved his family from a distance. Here, when both his sisters needed him to most, he could not soften his heart as their father would. He was not their father. He was the Prince of Power, and he recognized that. So he sighed, glanced at both Tassiana and Catalina with a gleam of sympathy in his eyes. But to Tassiana, he said nothing.

To Serenity
To Serenity

Instead, his eyes returned to Catalina with an echo. "It's best you handle this. And come see me afterwards", he said, unconcerned if she heard him or not. Here, he'd simply get in the way and be the firm hand that Tassiana didn't need. Baring witness to the bond Catalina and Tassiana so clearly had, Leonel felt his face soften, and a calm smile break through. She didn't need him. Catalina was all the sibling Tassiana needed. And it comforted him. His role was best played in stopping the Abyssal Imperium from claiming the universe, and the High Queen of the cosmos from damning his family. So with nay a word, his smile faded, chin lifted, and he vanished into the maw of higher dimensional space - teleporting back to Alexis. And before vanishing from even his father, the Prince of Power assured him of one thing. That Tassiana was with Catalina, and that so long a that held true, she hold strong.

He vanished, again leaving the turmoil of his family for the serenity of space. There, on Augusta, he could unearth the means to save them.

The Spice of Life

No Caption Provided

The Universe stirred, its scales tipped in favor of utter calamity, the major players? Unknown. The Universes' stress centered around the Universal Lavalieres all but one on this under-developed planet.

To make matters worse, a Universal Judge a being with immense power and oversight of the Multiverse visited them. From what Maya gathered she was here to judge them, all those that'd illegally traverse the multiverse.

The High Queen Ishara's current whereabouts were a mystery, not even the Guardians of the Library knew their Queens whereabouts but the Power Princess ever patient stayed in anticipation for an audience with the Judge.

Maya's power was a source of envy within the Library; some questioned just how powerful she was. Her mere presence drew an audience of Librarians, mostly the ones that'd been created to service the library; others who were there on sentence paid her no mind; as she was not there to save them.

The could see then tendrils of knowledge spiraling from all the Novels she was permitted to read. The Crimson Goddess consume hundreds of thousands of books within seconds, as seconds to a being like her seemed a lifetime.

She levitates before the Queen's chambers, to her right a room marked unauthorized to everyone, but she was sure it meant everyone but the Queen. It was a highly secure room containing a single book; its title shaved for fear of duplication, It's condition change depending on who held it; but the thing that interests her the most. The Librarians feared this book, and it contained something they didn't want to accept as true.

The Librarians didn't even step on the same tiles as the door for fear that something might happen to them. Whatever was in that room, shouldn't have the power to scare a God, a Universal God at that. It was in her studies of the books that she learned the characteristics of the text in the forbidden room. The clues came to her like a code, just waiting to be cracked; and if she broke it there was only a matter of time before someone else like her snapped it too.

"Objective is a go"

No Caption Provided

Without hesitation, Zeon pushed the door open and walked into the library and instantly she felt the presence of her dear cousin, Maya. She snickered, it seemed there was going to be a family reunion today. The Cardinal Demoness hadn’t seen her cousin for several years now, and last she did, Maya was under the control of the dagger and threatening the life of her Zeon’s youngest sister, Chance. Justice could be brought for her this day.

Her crimson eyes looking around as several Librarians eyed her with caution. They knew who she was but none approached her. Her book was on the shelf with Ziccarra for just a moment, before her story continued once again. Her eyes were able to seek out those who were easily corruptible, those who she could manipulate and use to her advantage, and she spotted one among the librarians.

“Hello,” Zeon began as she walked up to a rather young looking man with fiery red hair and deep almond eyes. “I’m looking for a book, surely you can help me” She could feel it, the bitterness, the anger…. Oh yes the anger.

“Who's book?” There was caution in his eyes as he picked up a book that was left resting on one of the many tables.

“Ziccarra Liafador.”

As he showed her the way, Zeon looked around the area, mapping out the structure of the library in her mind, though it was difficult to, as this library seemed infinite. But the longer she was here, the more easily she would be able to corrupt the more weak willed, such as this man. She began asking questions, engaging conversation with the young man. She found his name was Far-rah from Universe 133… a now dead universe. Then, he stopped before a crimson, leather book, not touching the book but motioning for Zeon to.

The former Matriarch grasped a hold of it, feeling almost as if she had won a small victory. “Thank you. Now, maybe you can help me with one more thing.”

“Of course.” Ah yes, there it was, the eagerness to help.

“I’m looking for a book that’s not in this… area.” She emphasized on the last word. “A book that the High Queen is afraid of.”

There was hesitation. “Oh, that book? Oh no, it’s forbidden for any of us to even approach the room.”

“The Universal God is afraid of this book. What could possibly scare someone of that power? What’s to say that this book doesn’t hold the key to kill her?” She walked behind the young man, whispering the thoughts into his head. “You and everyone else can be set free. For all we know, it could have information on how to restore dead universes, your universe. OR dare I say… even make you a Universal God.” She gently placed her hand upon his shoulder with one hand as the other tucked Ziccarra's book away.

He turned around, a slight tint of crimson tainted over his eyes. He was hers. “You think so?”

Her lips curled into a smirk. “Oh yes. Now… show me where it is.”

Being guided by a librarian help put a stop to any suspicion that may have been placed on her. The duo walked side by side as Zeon's eyes one by one, made contact with others who were vulnerable to her corruption. The longer she lingered in this building, the easier it would be to manipulate them. As the two began to close the distance, the presence of her cousin became stronger as well. It seemed that she was looking for the same book as well. The two turned the corner as Far-rah stopped suddenly. The once carpet ended as tile was now seen. She snickered as she walked forward, if she needed Far-rah, he would come to her.

Are you here for the forbidden book as well?
Are you here for the forbidden book as well?

That's when she saw her. "My dear cousin." Zeon spoke, her arms outstretched as if welcoming her cousin as she continued to walk forward towards her. "What a pleasant surprise to see you here among the books. You always were the one who loved to learn, weren't you?" She stopped just about a feet from her, invading her space without hesitation. "Are you here for the forbidden book as well?" An twisted, smile stretched across her face, hoping to face yet another Goddess.

"I'm glad you stopped. Had you moved an inch closer your atoms would've been disperse across multiple realities" The Eternal Princess warned not caring to open her eyes to face her cousin. It wasn't common knowledge to anyone because Maya hadn't seen action in ages, but her Negation Shield protect her from being hit or attacked unknowingly.

"Cousin, if I wanted the book. I would most certainly have it. Even you are smart enough to know that" The Power Princess wasn't actually trying to antagonize the Cardinal Demoness; but she was so heavily wrapped in other dimensions she didn't care how she came off.

"The workings of the Universe have favored me cousin, I weld more power than any person currently in this Library. I could bat an eye and they'd all be in another dimension. But I do want that. But you cousin? You want the book. Are you willing to accept the consequences of what you will release? Revenge is a hell of a power but it comes with a great price, Cousin you know that. Are you willing to unleash one of the greatest powers in revenge if so at what cost?"

She wasn't actually moving her lips to speak, rather through a thin film of red light that outlined her negation shield. She still hadn't opened her eyes, but Maya's voice almost seemed robotic. Her body eventually shift to the left giving Zeon full access to the room that held the forbidden book.

"By the way..." Her eyes open bloodshot red, and her head stoically turn toward Zeon. "You will not be leaving here with my mother's book"

Her cousin had most certainly changed since the last time she saw her. She was more mouthy than normal. How exciting. Zeon was never ignorant to Maya’s power. While she wasn’t physically the strongest, her power could end the world as they knew it. But she was a Pettis. Unless she was corrupted (like before) she posed no real threat to people unless she felt threatened (and even then sometimes that wasn’t enough for her to act). However… there was something different about her cousin. It was as if the humanity she once had… it wasn’t the same as before. It was as if the Goddess side of her was slowly overpowering her humanity. She snickered.

While the Demoness was hungry for bloodshed, she knew that this wasn’t the time unless she absolutely needed to. She had a mission to complete and the less altercation there was, the higher success rate. It seemed her cousin was preoccupied however, with her usual meditation. Exactly what she was doing didn’t interest Zeon, only what was in the room before them.

"But you cousin? You want the book. Are you willing to accept the consequences of what you will release? Revenge is a hell of a power but it comes with a great price, Cousin you know that. Are you willing to unleash one of the greatest powers in revenge if so at what cost?"

“All these questions when you already know the answer to them. But fine, I will play this game.” Her once amused look vanished and left a look of bitterness, resentment and rage. “I will pay any cost to get my revenge.”

Zeon watched as Maya moved out of her way, not bothering to try and stop her. She only took one step forward before the Princess of Power’s eyes shot over to her.

"By the way… You will not be leaving here with my mother's book"

She stopped, tilting her head slightly back as she unleashed an amused crackle of a laugh. Her entire body turned around as she reached into the pouch and pulled out the crimson leather book. “Your mother has brought nothing but pain to your family and yet you still wish to protect her secrets? Why? What do you owe her? You should be allowing me to take this book as a thanks. I’ve given you and your siblings a freedom that none of you have ever had. Have you not seen Tassi? She’s living happily with your father and getting the full attention and love she deserves. She’s going to be starting school soon and will grow into an amazing and powerful Goddess, you feel it too right? Not to mention Catalina is finally finding herself and is bonding with her daughter. Something she would have never been able to do if Ziccarra was still around. She even has a love interest. She’s… dare I say… happy. You’re now going around… reading books and whatever it is you do without your mother making demands of you. Even that assassin is finding some happiness among the family. You’re all living your own lives the way you want to because of what I did, even if it is temporary. But don’t worry, I’ll bring it back when I’m done with and then you can read about how a wonderful woman, wife and mother she was.”

She turned her back to Maya as she continued to walk into the forbidden room, the book still in her hand.

"Don't you ever get tired of saying the same things over and over again" The Crimson Goddess sighed like she was exhausted.

"You've been saying the same thing since the fall of Spain, you're right; our lives are better now that my mother is dead. But Yours isn't. Even in her death, you are still obsessed with her; because now you have no one else to blame your failures on. I don't need to read your book to know what happens next. Spoiler alert cousin, you fade into obscurity; because there is no Ziccarra to propel your life. You've become a monster, the worst kind of monster. You've become what you hate the most...Ziccarra"

In her right mind, Maya wasn't an aggressor, she was a pure soul much like her sister Tassi, but she learned from the likes of her older sister. 'Do what's necessary, when it's necessary' Making a palm, Maya teleported inside the room with Zeon using her mystic energy to make the exit dissolve.

"I'm not stupid Zeon, there's no way your simple mind could possibly understand what in this book. I don't know WHO you've come to retrieve it for, but you couldn't possibly unlock it' secrets. And since you failed to do the one thing I asked...I think I'll have to make an example out of you."

The Mystic Energies surrounding the Power Princess Pulsate before through the entire room, beating like a heartbeat. Making an orb of crimson energy out of nowhere the power princess slammed it into the ground in an attempt to negate the gravity in the room, this would make Zeon easy pickings for her concussive energy blast she'd fire in tow.

@maya_liafador:

Her face twisted with anger as her cousin insulted her. How dare she. She knew nothing. She and her siblings were a constant threat to this Earth just as her mother was and she was calling her the monster.

“You know NOTHING!” Zeon roared, her vision turning red. “YOU and your family are a danger to this world with those toxic Goddesses. None of you are fit for them. All that has come from them is destruction, fear and pain.” She took a hostile step forward towards her cousin. “I will tear those Goddesses out of each of you even if it means I have kill every single of one you.” She hissed through her teeth.

Just then the door vanished, and Zeon knew what was to come next. A fight. “An example out of me?” The former Matriarch laughed in amusement. “I’ve always liked you Maya, but I will rip your soul from your body like I did your mother’s and you both will burn in Cardinal Hell for all eternity TOGETHER.”

Just then the entire room was engulfed in a crimson energy as Zeon’s body suddenly lifted up from the ground as if gravity had been banished. There was confusion on the Cardinal Warrior’s face as her body began to float upside down, her raven hair extending in all direction as if it was alive like the serpent's on medusa’s head. This was… different.

Energy projectiles began to fly towards her and normally, dodging them would be simple. But this? One hit her directly in the chest, sending her flying back into a wall. With a grunt she watched as a second came rushing at her, but this time she managed to push off the wall and out of the way of the second blast. Third one? Hit her in the back as she spiraled until hitting the ceiling face first. “ENOUGH!” Zeon yelled, rage overwhelming her as her skin shifted to it’s grey color and her eyes covered in crimson. “I will not play this game!”

She pushed herself off the ceiling towards Maya, drawing her blade as she thrust it forward, attempting to slice into her flesh. Upon landing on the ground she would use the momentum to do a single hand front flip and use her strength to push back up towards the ceiling as she threw out her free hand, unleashing a stream of hellfire from her palm as her back suddenly hit the ceiling, trying to regain her composure. But what Maya may or may not be aware of, was that every moment they spent together, the stronger Zeon’s corruption over her soul would grow and allow the Demoness to manipulate her to her desires.

Zeon's blade slice through Maya's skin, drawing a brief grunt from the Power Princess, as she tried to rebound off Zeon's attack the roaring hellfire flames forcing the Crimson Goddess into a miniature retreat behind her own negation shield.

Catalina was right, Zeon was far more powerful than the last time the two of them saw each other. Then, Maya was the Aggressor and on the brink of plunging the entire universe into darkness, now? It was Zeon. The Unholy array of flames left the Power Princess moving to divert her energies to soothe the burns and pacify the wound suffered at the hands of Zeon.

"Ehn.." She grunted feeling the blade's secondary effects beginning to take effect. "Heh...I'm one of the most powerful people on the planet, and you think corrupting me is a good idea"

It was not fate that brought them together today, rather a foresight on behalf of the hybrid Goddess that saw her purposely place herself within Zeon's path. The Forbidden book was clearly Zeon's objective, but the Cardinal Demon's quest for revenge saw her snag the book belonging to Ziccarra, Maya's mother. Maya was able to deduce that her mother's story wasn't over, she wasn't able to absorb the contents of the book.

While the Forbidden Book meant for defense, Maya's intent was to appease the High Queen long enough for her to finish her investigation, they could get that book back, no one on the planet could decipher it anyway. But a book of the living? it'd immediately trigger the attention of the Universal Judge.

Maya's crimson energy hit the floor crafting portal all around the Demoness, with a blinding flash the Crimson Princess came flying with inexplicable speed from each portal seemingly at the same time her mystic energy causing a typhoon of crimson power she hoped would catch Zeon in. Sliding to a stop her hands crackling with a mixture of corrupted mystic energy, the Power Princess shook the entire building firing a concentrated beam of energy looking to finish her cousin off, by filling the space with her power.

"Something happening outside"

@maya_liafador:

She snickered, running her finger along the drawn blood of her cousin as she wiped it clean with her uniform as she watched her cousin bleed. “I think it’s a fabulous idea, that way, even if you kill me here, you can still carry my work of killing every single one of your siblings. And it’s not just you I’ve corrupted-” Just then sounds of several beings banging where the door once was could be heard. “It’s everyone in this building.”

But she was curious, why would Maya be so driven to keep Zeon from keeping the book? It only made the Demoness want it even more. Just then, several portals began opening all around her and before she could dive out of it’s way, crimson energy erupted from all directions, causing Zeon to roar in pain.

As the attack stopped Zeon breathed heavily as the bag that once held the book of Ziccarra had fallen off of her from the assault. She knew she wouldn’t survive another attack. But watched as Maya’s hands crackled once more with the same energy. As the attack came roar at her like a lioness to it’s prey, Zeon opened up a hellfire portal below her, retreating into it as another portal appeared before the sacred book. The foundation of the building trembled before the Princess of Power. As she was distracted by her own attack, the former Matriarch grasped the unholy book, holding onto it tightly for a moment before opening another hellfire portal, this time, only tossing the book inside it, securing what Ada requested of. The other end of the portal would open up to Ada’s location and would drop before her. Her mission was complete. But Zeon? Oh… she wasn’t going anywhere.

"Something happening outside"

“I’m well aware of that cousin.” The black ooze of what was left of her blood was seen slowly crawling from her lips. “I can feel the death… it’s magnificent.” she outstretched her hand to her fallen blade as it retracted back to her palm. “You can feel it too, correct? The shift in the world. Something horrible is about to happen, and it’s not the High Queen.”

No Caption Provided

Her footsteps began making it towards her Zia’s book that had fallen from her. Being stubborn and refusing from back down from it. “What is it about this book that you don’t wish for me to have it? Your sister read it. With her steadfast memory she could probably recite to me if I requested of her.” She then gave a malice grin. “Maybe that’s what I shall do since you’re so insistent of me not taking it. I’ll just borrow Tassiana." During her nonsense rambling Cardinal demonic minions began forming in the darkest parts of the room. Their crimson eyes glowing all around the room, focused on the Hybrid Goddess. "After all, not even your father can travel to Cardinal Hell. She and I will have quality time together.”

No Caption Provided

In that moment dozens of Cardinal demonic minions leaped from the shadows and towards the Liafador. As they would distract her, even for a moment, Zeon would be seen descending downward upon her from directly above, swinging her blade upon her cousin. The moment her feet would land on the ground, she would unleash a series of slashes, one after another, precise and deadly.

Maya's eyes bounced back and forth As Zeon's use of her Demon powers allowed her to craft several portals; in her trickery, the Demon Goddess achieved her objective. Instead of just making a retreat, Zeon stayed which actually surprised the Power Princess--and truthfully incensed her.

Her corrupted cousin begin to threaten the well-being of her youngest sister Tassi, which drew no emotion from the Goddess of Heart. Though she was on the precipice from being detached from human emotion the continued threats against the well being of her family finally drew the fury of the Power Princess.

She took note to the eyes honed in on her--child's play. In her mind, Maya was beneath all of this. She wasn't Ziccarra nor was she Catalina; her power supply was endless. She could heal faster, move faster and disrupt the very fabrics of physics and metaphysics. Still, Zeon persists, which was a sign of disrespect.

From the shadows her minions push forward, Causing the Crimson Goddess to toss back her cowl in preparation for their attack. Making a fist Maya's energy took a red and black mixture, evident of the corruption trying to take effect, but being stifled by her own Mystic Energies.

Opening her palm a crimson wave shot out over the ghouls she could see, and those she couldn't were seared by her Negation Field. Zeon would've been too however, the Goddess' eyes went skyward making her aware of Zeon's attack. The Demon of Rage tore into Maya's body unleashing a series of slashes each one surgically chosen to deal the max amount of damage.

Maya's body bounce back and forth in rythmn with each strike, blood oozing from her body; and as the Demon prepared for the Kill Switch, Maya's arms folded across her chest and she literally glided back from the Demoness with a smirk on her face.

No Caption Provided

Blood trailed the floor from her former location to her current one. Maya's wounds would heal eventually, she just needed to stay stationary long enough for it to kick in. The pain? non-existence, while her body sustained several serve injuries the Power Princess bypassed pain through the use of her mother's legendary Cardinal Skills--something she was able to do while Zeon was talking to her while she was meditating earlier.

"I'm not Catalina, I'm not my mother, and I sure as hell, not a 5-year-old child." Maya spat levitating across the room with her hands crossed. "I'm not a Goddess by Apotheosis, I was born a Goddess. I don't have to exert physical energy in the manner you do. The hardest part of this, for me, is trying to come up with a creative way to kill you. But if you want to do this psychologically...we can do that.

Maya spit huge blobs of blood onto the sacred floor before crafting an orb, it cackle as she brought her powerful energy to life. This wasn't the mystic energy she frequently tapped into; this was her reality warping energy. Opening a portal above them the energy was quickly devoured by the portal.

Behind them, on the wall, her mystic energy opened a one-way portal to the outside world, the subject? The only person Zeon ever cared for. Chance. Zeon had to put forth the effort to hurt Tassi--Maya did not.

"Since I cannot feel pain...Chance will feel it for me" Maya smirk almost as if her transformation to the world of Gods finally stripped her completely of her ability to care. From behind them, Chance wailed in agony feeling the results of Zeon's calculated strikes against the Goddess of the heart were now personifying on the body of Chance.

Extending her hands outward again the Power Princess now tampered with the probability looking to delay any portal Zeon might create while she fired a concentrated beam of Mystic Energy toward her cousin on the far side of the room; her goal to finish Zeon--Permanently.

@maya_liafador:

As each attack was striked against Maya, she could see that not a single strain of pain in her face. While the blood of the Power Goddess flowed freely upon the ground she could see Maya was in no sort of distress. It was alarming, even to the Demoness. She wasn’t anything like her mother or sister or even her cousin, Isis, she was… beyond them. But all of this was according to her plan, she just needed Maya to make the final step.

The moment her sister, Chance, came into view, Zeon knew that this was not the same Maya she knew. This woman… this creature, wasn’t Maya. She was going to have to find another way to kill the Goddess, because conventional ways wouldn't do it, but it wouldn’t be today. The screams of Chance in agonizing pain pierced into The former White Cardinal’s chest. She grit her teeth, her hand balled into a fist knowing that she was unable to do anything to relieve her sister who was tormented once again because of Zeon’s own actions. How much longer was she going to have her sister tormented for her own deeds?

She tried desperately to create a portal to get Chance out of there and to a hospital. But her portal creation wasn’t working. Maya had done something to her powers. Zeon let out a frustrated roar of anger as she watched a collection of energy build up in her cousins hands. It was then Zeon realized… her plan had worked… too well. The crimson energy didn’t just collide into Zeon, but evaporated her body into nothingness, but not before the hellfire portal sent her young sister into the nearest ER in the city to get treatment.

But as the energy beam faded where the General of Cardinal Hell once stood was now left with nothing but scorch marks of what was assumed to be is left of Zeon Liafador. The woman who had tormented the family for years and was driven into insanity by mixtures of family struggles and her own internal struggles was now killed in battle, by none other than Maya Liafador.
