✭✭ Outer Space, Perses Galaxy✭✭

In the depths of a faraway galaxy, rogue stars zoomed all about in a maddening race, tearing the heavens asunder without respite. Gamma ray bursts roared from the heaving crust of neutron stars, strobing for light-years on end. And supernovae flared in a chorus of cosmic death. Yet away from the stormy sea of chaos, the improbable became probable. On the calmer edge of the Perses Galaxy's spiraling arms, a lone ice planet - Glacia - drifted through space. Quietly orbiting it's star, it bore no life, only icy peaks and a subsurface ocean devoid of things to discover.

But at the summit of it's tallest mountain, entropy cast a miraculous spell - of randomness - and from the folds of chaotic fluctuations, emerged one of five Omega Cubes. Ancient artifacts known only in the passages of cosmic lore, they promised uncontested supremacy over the four known fundamental forces of natures - the strong force, weak force, electromagnetism, gravitation - and the mysterious fifth harnessed by the Eteldan Empire. Energy crackled from the Omega Cube that'd claimed the skies of Glacia as it's own, quaking the fabric of space-time with ripples felt beyond the boundaries of the Perses Galaxy. Ripples detected by instruments in the Valhöll space station.

"Alert Leo about this"

And answered with awe from the American God.

"Shit", Achilles cursed, arms crossed over his chest, and his brow furrowed from the bright glow of the holographic screen, "When was the last time any instrument or scanner went this crazy?", he asked, his eyes sweeping to those of his brother, Orion.

"It is most curious", Orion noted, wrestling the screen's light with his golden glow. "Hmm, and it points to a planet in the Perses Galaxy", he paused, searching his brother's eyes for an expected glint of intrigue.

"Would you be surprised if I said I was surprised?", Achilles smiled, finding humor in the absurdity of what he'd learned, "Considering that place is a chaotic death trap, I'm surprised those ripples came from a planet instead of... I don't know, black holes colliding", he shrugged.

"Shall we investigate?", Orion suggested, earning a shake of the head from the American God, "I'll investigate. Someone has to stay here. Besides, you're plan B in case I ever die. Alert Leo about this".

"Well in that case, I do hope you live. I quite enjoy the solitude here", Orion quipped, eyes gleaming with amusement.

"Yeah well judging from this season's round of human paranoia about the likes of us, it's probably better that you do enjoy the solitude here. Might save us from the third or fourth Civil War. Send me the coordinates to the planet. I'll stay in contact", Achilles nodded, a beam of light teleporting from Orion's side to the hangar where he strode to the Blue Eagle, and set course for the Perses Galaxy.

The Ninjan Empire--- Prison Planet Magog

No Caption Provided

It was surreal, to be back here where it essentially all began for her. Catalina Liafador assisted a Talmut Invasion of Ninjan space with Magog and the current Ninjan Capitol of Xiox caught in the cross-hairs. The then reigning Queen of Ninjeta, Madison Maynard committed all Ninjan resources into stopping a Talmut invasion of Earth. They were victorious, but it was not without scrutiny.

Xiox was nearly captured, the OSA leadership had been dismantled; Madison Maynard fled to escape persecution from the make-shift government. In her absence, Addison a Ninjan from Reality-M was made Interim Queen.

She brought the Ninjans back from the cusp of Civil War and turned their monarchy into an elective monarchy. As a result of her efforts she was elected Queen full time and with full authority, despite being from a different world and color altogether.

It was almost time for reelection, the restoration of the origin world, Ninjeta was sure to have her be reelected; but today called for a review of the Empire. A time where the Queen was to travel planet by planet to meet with the people and governors assess the effectiveness of their rule, and if need be to remove them.

"As you can see your highness, we've rebuilt all the containment facilities. Now we just need to get a handle on all the prisoners freed during the war, and we will be back to optimal performance"

The Warden reported doing her best to stay in Addison's favor. She was brought in during the Maynard administration; if she was hand appointed by Madison, then she had a job for however long she wanted it.

"I will need a progress report, and a list of things you will need from the capitol to make strides." As she spoke she could see her ship commander flying toward her location, judging from the speed she could tell the matter was urgent.

"Majesty, we've picked up a strange energy source on our long-range scanners. It's coming from the Perses Galaxy." She reported with her head bowed in respect. The information drew side-eyes from everyone in attendance, mostly because they didn't understand why the Queen would be interested in another galaxy.

The Apricot tinted Queen nodded but said nothing on the subject. "As I was saying, the Capitol will take care of your construction needs." She continued before flying off with her flight commander.

"The Perses Galaxy huh, what do we know about it?" Addison asked solidifying everyone's suspicions that she intended to investigate.

"We know nothing about it, your majesty. It's just on the other side of Talmut territory" The Ship Commander replied showing that a trip would take them directly through Talmut Airspace.

The planet Magog was on the very tip of the Milky Way, it's where the milky way ended, and the Argos Galaxy began--The Talmut galaxy as the Ninjans often referred to it as.

"Engage ghost drive. I don't want us being pinged by the Talmuts. Chart a course for the Perses Galaxy. If we do come into contact with the Talmuts, we take them out before they can report back is that understood?"

Normally, all orders came from the ship commander; but when the Queen gave them a direct order there wasn't much they could do. The crew blankly stared at their queen before executing her orders.

"We have to get this power source before the Talmuts, they're a bunch of idiots so they probably haven't picked up on it yet. But the Imperium? If they get it we can kiss both the Talmuts and the Ninjans goodbye. I'm not asking any of you to die for my recklessness, get me to the system and I'll go in on shuttle. That. IS. An. Order"

Zafirah BoKara, her name was known within the Ninjan Military. While her skin was green like a Ninjan, her blood was tainted by Crattian DNA. Her mother a Ninjan, her father a Crattian, it’s unclear how they met or what kind of relationship the two had, but in the end it lead to the birth of Zafirah. Her mother told her that her father didn’t want her and so her mother took her and raised her on her own. For a while people believed she was a pure Ninjan, but one day, she accidentally displayed her Crattian abilities when she was a child and since that day Ninjan’s shunned her. But when she became of age, she was approached by Ninjan military recruiters, they saw potential in her abilities. So she joined, hoping that she fought hard enough for Ninjneta, she would be accepted.

Which is what lead her here on the NBS Royalty, standing on the other side of the room as Queen Addison lead the group on a mission to discover what this reported strange energy was said to be. Zafirah was of no use right now, she was a Soldier, dawned in her armor and sword hanging on her hip waiting to be used, waiting to draw the blood of her enemy. Her job was not only to protect Queen Addison, but obey her every word. If she told Zafirah to punch the ground, she would ask “How hard?”. If she wanted her to jump into a dark hole in the ground, she would do it without question. Or at least that's what she was suppose to do. But Zafirah was known to break a order now and then. But until then, she was on standby, her green eyes looking out to the Perses Galaxy. While they knew of the area, it was still a somewhat new territory for all of them, and new territories meant potential new enemies and new bones to break.

"Engage ghost drive. I don't want us being pinged by the Talmuts. Chart a course for the Perses Galaxy. If we do come into contact with the Talmuts, we take them out before they can report back is that understood?"

A small smirking grin appeared on Zafirah’s lips, there was a chance for some action after all while everyone seemed to pause what they were doing, in a surprise of the orders given to them. She could feel her hands begin to itch with excitement. But then the Queen unleashed another set of orders that didn't sit too well with the half breed.

"I'm not asking any of you to die for my recklessness, get me to the system and I'll go in on shuttle. That. IS. An. Order"

Zafirah walked forward, approaching her Queen, standing taller than her at six feet. “My Queen.” She spoke up, bowing before royalty. “Allow me to go with you." She understood there was a potential of being demoted defying the Queen, but she refused to stay behind. She lift her head, looking back down upon the Queen, standing her ground. "My abilities can also be useful on this mission, especially with the potential of enemies. I will help you uncover this power source in the name of Ninjeta. It would go against the Ninjan Military Oath if I stood by and did nothing."

Since his claiming of the Power Lavaliere and his subsumption of his dormant kindred, the Ancient One had entered a state of semi-solitude, to give himself an opportunity to gain full mastery over his new potency. Even more intoxication than the control that he now possessed over the myriad energies of the universe was his vastly enhanced awareness of those selfsame forces; he became acutely aware of any significant usage or disruption of the flow of energy throughout the cosmos.

The appearance of the Omega Cube was one such disruption. As a slumbering crocodile might be disturbed by a massive rock being cast into its lagoon, the reverberations of power that rippled across space itself would have attracted his attention regardless of what business he would have been engaged in.

The eyes of his artificially constructed host body opened, and his baleful gaze once more fell upon the physical reality of the universe. Rather than tearing opening the reality of space with one of his portals, however, the Lord of the Abyssal Imperium simply slipped into the energy channels of reality, following the disturbance across the void until he found the planet upon which fate had inflicted the Cube. As he manifested upon the world’s rocky surface, the full truth of what had drawn him here became readily apparent, and his usually impassive face split in a malevolent grin, in spite of himself.

The Ancient One hungered, and he would be sated.

✭✭ The Blue Eagle✭✭

No Caption Provided

Piloting the Blue Eagle, Achilles soared the cosmos with an uneasy weight on his mind. The surging power felt from light years away was frightening. The kind whose cry rippled through space-time for a power-mad despot to hear. Gliding through the void, the American God glanced out a window to meet eyes with the stars twinkling in the distance, and the cosmic dust that will one day become a people and the planet they'll call home. A truth however, that was open-ended, for the great power in the Perses Galaxy was one of creation as much as destruction.

And in abhorrent hands, destruction would come for them all.

Tearing his gaze away, the American God cast his eyes upon the soft glow of a holographic screen, and a voice - his brother's - called out to him.

"Achilles, I've informed Leo. He too had felt the disturbance", Orion paused, his holographic image flashing into view.

"He felt it as far away as Augusta? Hm", Achilles' brow furrowed, his eyes steeled with focus, "Alright, I need to Perses now. This is worse than I thought. Speak soon".

Little more was said in the way of goodbyes. Orion's hologram vanished, and space-time bent to the savage roar of the Blue Eagle. Pulled into the cascading maw of a portal, the Blue Eagle was above Planet Glacia in the ticks between seconds.

✭✭ Planet Glacia✭✭

Diving past the clouds, the Blue Eagle was rocked by blistering cold. Frost clung to it's hull as it dodged the water plumes shooting out of Glacia's icy crust till finally, it landed. Striding out the ship doors, Achilles was struck by the −210 °C of a world frozen and cruel. Yet the strength of a demigod held his body in defiance, but as the American God looked skyward, his eyes surrendered to the shock.

A mountain scraped the clouds, and from it's peak, a storm of energy left the very heavens in hysterics. There, like the all-seeing eye of a force beyond all mortal things, the Omega Cube hovered in wait for the first to claim it. Though as his eyes drew level, Achilles glimpsed at death incarnate. A jade giant stood in the far distance, and he radiated a power - a Lavaliere - that the American God had never known him to have. What ill-fortune that he had come without his own. Still, Achilles steeled his eyes on his faraway enemy, and tore the ground asunder with a superhuman sprint. A roaring stop kept them some twenty feet apart, but as the dust settled and his breath misted in the cold air, Achilles sighed.

"If only you were here just sight-seeing. But", he scowled, "We both know why you're here. And I'd be a coward not to stand in your way".

Wielding his star-spangled shield, Achilles - a mere demigod - faced the most ancient immortal in all the cosmos. And he did so with the heat of valor, and the ice of nerve.

Addison stood perplexed by the entire ordeal, usually, Leonel would make some impromptu arrival suggesting she help him with something, but not such arrival came. Instead, Addison was uncharismatically looking into what could be trouble on her own.

Lost in her thoughts, she didn't hear the Ninjan approach, but it seemed like she wanted to go?

"Very well you can accompany me down to the planet. We have zero information on this planet so prepare for the worse" Addison replied not wanting to deprive her guard of doing what she took an oath to do. The distinct differences between Queen Madison and Queen Addison, Madison wouldn't have a Ninjan Royal ship out of Ninjan territory; but Addison would never jeopardize the lives of others with a decision she made. The differences were often disputed throughout the Ninjan Political Realm.

She recognized the woman as the Half-Breed. 'Interesting' She thought to herself. Addison by definition was a Ninjan from Reality-M that much was evident in her Orange skin color, a contrast to the Ninjan's green hue. Despite it, she stood on deck as the Queen. Zafirah was a rare Ninjan mix breed, probably conceived when Ninjan women were still able to have children sexually.

As the Royalty roared from "Hyper Space" Addison moved to the bridge to take a look at the planet. "Do we have this planet on the star charts captain?" The Captain simply shook her head before commanding that a drone be launched for information collection.

"Uh...ma'am we have a problem. The drone...it froze..." the news once again stopped all communications on the deck. "F-Froze?" The captain repeated loud enough for Addison to hear.

She understood the concern, Ninjans were extremely weakened by the Cold, It was the one thing in the world that could render them useless, which is why they only conquered lush islands. Though most of their elite military groups trained on cold weather planets--most did not.

"Soldier, you're going to want to layer up" She commanded not giving Zafirah a choice in the matter at all. She didn't need to, she could regulate her body temperature.

Directing the woman to the shuttle, she gave the command-specific instructions to return to Ninjan Space and await for further orders.

The shuttle descended, initial scanners picked up two lifeforms on the planets; along with the pulsating energy signature.

"Wait...is that...an Earthling?" She asked flying above them before doing a "U" turn and setting her vehicle down behind the jade behemoth. 'What's an Earthling doing out here' she thought to exit the vessel, Zafirah at her side. "Wait..." she said stopping their advance. The Earthling was holding a shield in a defensive stance ready to engage. The Titan? A lavaliere; just the sight of one was enough to incite doubt in the Queen.

"I don't know what's going on here, but if you're after what I think you're after. It's coming with us" Almost instinctively the Ninjan Queen activate her own energy, which caused her hands to cackle with electricity.
