He laid there, slowly takng a breath. The smell was of fresh rain, moist air and tasted of undergrowth. He took another breath, smelling the same things but also the hint of iron, slightly rusted. It was blood. His senses flared as he tried to discern where he was, while he also tried to remember what had happenend last. Everything felt foggy other than the urgency to open his eyes and see what was going on. His eyes jutted open, or so he thought, and there was nothing in his vision but a murky white color. He tried to move but nothing happened.

This felt almost familiar to him.

A warm hand rested upon what he could guess was his chest, "Retane, listen to me and follow the sound of my voice. I know you are in there, and there are a lot of questions, but I need you to focus on me. Focus on me and only my voice."

As the voice spoke Retane could hear cries in the background, and could feel sadness and confusion in the air.

"Retane. Focus on me. My name is Enroshia, and I am your friend. We all are."

Retane felt as if he attempted to look around and tried to focus, but there were whimpers and he still couldn't see anything. All he felt was warmth on his chest, almost beckoning him to, but for some reason something was causing him to be apprehensive.

"Am I dead?" Retane spat out. He felt a warm liquid spew from what should be his mouth.

"No, Retane," a familiar voice called as he felt warmth in two other spots of what should be a body. "I'm here with your daughter, and while we dont know where we are in there, we are going to try and heal you."

Daughter? He had kids. His mind raced. He had six. No, he had seven. Or six? One was dead. No. Retane had given his life to safe them all right? What was going on?

"He isn't focusing, Alaina. Naturae. We need him to focus." It was Enroshia that seemed to be stern with the other two.

Naturae. That was his one and only daughter. He remembered. What did he do to have her trying to save him? He knew he never meant to be a burden.

"Dad." He knew her sweet voice and if he cried, he felt the tear swept away. "Listen Dad. They tell me you are lost but there's a chance that you can hear me, so I need you to listen to me and come to me. You promised me it would all be ok, and that Lone would be here, but without you or her here I would be lost. They don't know our connection like me and you do, so, please come, back to me."

Retane felt as if he tried to answer her call and tried to remember Lone and when he did all he could do was see a set of sad eyes.

"It's been hours and nothing's working right?" There was a voice that came off as sad, but Retane felt this one was usually more energetic, and there seemed to be alot of people talking him agaisnt something and suggested there was another way.

There was a hard sound of metal clanking and a few murmurs followed by a single voice, "This ones only because I believe in you."

It was then that Retane felt a figure over him and two hands grab the back of his head and for an instant could see a dragon coming at him.

A dragon came at him and for a moment things felt tranquil. If only for a moment. After that, there were memories that rushed towards him in flux, and reverberating sound of laughs, sobs, cheers of joy and cries pf pain. Shrieks of and roars mixed from agony and force of power. He knew all of this but he wasn't sure he wanted to take it all in.

"N-no." He stammered. If his words reached out to anyone, he wouldn't have known. " I remember! I died! I'm not suppose to be here! Or is this my torment for everything? I don't understand!"

In the murkiness that he could see, there was a golden form with a hand extended towards him. "Yeah", The figure laughed slightly, " You died, on purpose. Came back again to save everyone, and died again, to save everyone once again. I guess it's called dying? Ceasing yourself to exist? Giving up your life force? Nixing your soul?"

There was a slight pause as the Namekian tried to gather his surroundings and everything that was going on. Yes, he remembered now. He was Retane, a Namekian Warrior and creator of his own clan. In front of him stood...

The Emerald Warrior paused for a moment as he tried to focus fully on the Golden One. He struggled deep within for the name until there was a thud as the golden mask in the shape of a dragon's head was flung in between the two. "Arith!"

"Yeah, That's me." The Lythian came into full view, for the most part, from the glossy silhouette that initially was his figure. He stood there, in his golden armor, sabers strapped to his back. He was without his helm, and could be seen as a human with blonde locks. The one part that seemed odd was that the left side, there was nothing there.

Retane accepted the hand, both grasping the other's wrist as the Lythian pulled him up. The Namekian narrowed his eyes, "Something wrong?"

Arith reached for his face, but paused for a moment and dropped his hand and looked away. "No. I think everything is fine."

Arith's visible eye looked in the direction of the Dragon Helm and there was a pause as Retane matched his gaze. The helm itself, had a torn gash on a single side of the face sinking the metal nearly an inch inward and it was almost as if there was some melting going on as well. The two met each others glance again and there was shrug from the human and he looked towards what seemed to a looking glass on the things happening outside. "If you haven't figured it out, we are in your head right now."

The Namekian gave a nod letting his own gaze look through what seemed to be a blurry out of body experience. From what he could tell his own corpse laid there right side up, and there was a figure, naked, collapsed on top of him. There were others surrounding them. trying to pull them apart. Retane noticed the golden hair and looked back to his comrade, "Are you laying on top of me naked?"

The Lythian ran his hand through his mane and looked away. "I don't have a clue what you are talking about." The was a moment of pause before he looked upwards with a sigh, "How much do you remember?"

Retane paused for a moment, noting that he was averting from the topic at hand, but realized that he wasn't sure. "I remember... some, but I'm not sure. I remember you. You usually wear that mask. I remember I have kids. A daughter, her name is Naturae." He took a deep breath as he looked to the ground. Alaina, was a friend. Or a friend of a friend? An ally maybe? Enroshia is a friend too, I think? My connection to you is him. Right?"

Arith stood there, not speaking as he let the question he had ask trigger the Namek to search for everything.

"My name is Retane, and I am a Namekian. But I am dead. Or I should be. I feel as if I have caused a lot of people pain and suffering just by being in existence. I know deep down I am not suppose to be here, but I don't understand it at all." He paused for a moment, trying to gather all the facts he could remember. "None of this makes any sense at all. I feel as if my body shouldn't be here, or there or whatever. I feel as if I know this 'Lone' person closely, almost intimately, but I cant remember why, nor why they aren't there like I promised?"

Arith gave a nod, half face and all, "Well, I'm here to try and help you out." The Lythian closed his eyes for a moment almost as if trying to remember something. " Going to need you to trust me on this one and relax. I'm not sure how painful this is going to be, so please just trust me and relax."

"I almost wonder if I should, since you said it twice. " Retane let a smirk cross his face. " But fine, I trust you, and I'm relaxed. At least as much as I am gonne b-"

As the Namekian spoke, Arith had charged his hands with a white and black orb and had begun to wave his hands around a few times in a strange pattern, only to slam them together and shout, "WHEN DARKNESS MEETS LIGHT! YOU REMEMBER!"

There was a flash of grey light then, nothing. Arith shrugged his shoulders as Retane looked confused. "Nothing? Really? Ok, how about this" Arith placed his hand on Ret's forehead and there was a white flash.

----------

He looked on from above, or at least it felt like he was. He wasn't a he at all, but nothing more than a dispersed memory that should have been long forgotten. So why was he here? Why was he looking upon a plane once more, if he was no longer?

"NO!!!! LONE!!!!" A young green one called out, as some dark force aimed to take out a taller figure and a large blue wolf leapt in front of man, saving the green and silver one from ultimate destruction. He knew the young girl, he knew the man, and he knew the wolf. He didn't know why and couldn't understand it but deep down, he knew. He couldn't even explain the way he felt when the wolf took the hit but, he knew he wanted to roar out in anger. However, he had no voice to do so.

The familiar green and silver figure knelt over the wolf, a laugh erupting from the opposite side of the field and cries, from the young one, on the other. The Overseer felt anxious as the wolf took it's last breath, and would have wept if it had tears to weep. But why? ? He tried his best to focus on the events down below, if 'below' was the best term to describe it..


---

As the smoke cleared, the first born still stood, his flesh smoking and charred. His violet blood dripping from multiple lacerations. The Namekain dropped his arms and looked to the wolf that laid in front of him. "Lone... Why?" The Namekian asked in short breaths trying to regain his stamina. His foe had sent what was an attempt at a killing blow and Lone, the wolf ad leapt in the way, taking the brunt of the damage. Maleficus Nova, son of standing there bleeding with his jade and pink skin. Unlike the other Namekians there he seemed to stick out the most. His right upper arm and pectoral area was silverish and metallic, though seemed to be real flesh, as the bruises that ran across them leaked his life force.

The large blue wolf, only let out a low whimper as the life began to leave her eyes. Nova, shook his head and knelt down. The wolf had once been the embodiment of his father, Retane's soul. At least up to the part where they had fused and he had given Lone, her own life to live. Being the God of Death had seemed to have it's perks it seemed. Still Mal Nova felt a kinship with the Dire Wolf and deep down he knew the feeling was mutual. The Imperfect Namek wasn't akin to, however, people getting hurt over him. It was his job to do the dirty work. No one else's.

"NO!!! LONE!!!!" It was Naturae that screamed at the top of her lungs. She struggled against those holding her back but it was futile. Still she kept trying.

Maleficus Nova glanced at his little sister's direction and shook his head as he turned back to his opponent. The masked man that had done the damage, simply chuckled at the pain he had caused. The Imperfect Namekian could only shake his head further as he knelt down and placed a hand upon Lone's rips. He hunted for a pulse and slowly sent multiple shock waves throughout her, while trying to heal her at the same time, but only squirts of the wolfs blood still kept shooting out, causing an even more horrific scene.

Multiple Ninja and Nameks started to dash to aide Retane's Legacy, but with a single hand he stopped them as he outstretched it, letting out a growl. "DON'T YOU THINK ABOUT TOUCHING HER!"

The Imperfect Namek could hear the mixture of Naturae's crying and his foe's laughing as he watched his own life force leak out and mix with Lone's only to saturate the planet. Mal let out a sigh as a tear drop fell from his check and splashed into the muddied ground and he gently closed Lone's eyes forever, "I'm Sorry."

"What was that?" The Masked Man chuckled. He stood there, a grey humanoid, wearing a grey and black outfit, only his eyes able to be seen.

"I said I'm sorry." The First Born of Retane spoke louder. "I'm sorry to everyone that it's come to this." Mal Nova, still shaking his head, stood up. It was then that he had resigned himself to the fact that he would have to do the one thing he promised he would never do. He was near out of energy, his father was gone. Lone was dead. Raditz, 18, and Kaaden, refused to intervene in the matter anymore. Super Namek didn't work. Nor did his Ultimate Namekian power. His ascended teir didn't even work. Nothing did. There was only thing left to do.

"Master! NO!" Tamsin was the next to scream out, as she knew what was about to happen. She could read his mind and could sense what he planned.

Nova threw his hands from his body as he took a deep breath, extending them outward, a white orb forming in one and a black in the other.

"This shit again?" The Masked Voidbringer laughed.

"Open those portals one more time. Because I'm about to show you and your army and anyone else where you fucked up! " Nova's upper lip twitched as his veins in his forehead bulged.

"Oh like this? You want more?" The Voidmaster waved a hand, his eyes gleaming with joy as a void tore threw the very existence behind him..

"Yes. Now, prepare to die, because, like I told you before, and you may have forgot, but I am Retane's Son. There are things about that,that you don't understand. First off, that I am truly perfection and and am better in him so many ways. You forget that my father was simply a Namekian. I am the Imperfect Namek and am stronger than him. I've beaten my own father before to prove it, but there is another reason that I am called the Demon of Namek, and I'm sorry to my kin and my friends but it's time to end this."

Mal shook his head for the final time, knowing that he had made his mind up, "Guess I'll see you soon, if you are still there, father!" He slammed the two orbs together, as if trying to force them to together, a mixture of black and white aura erupting around him as he began to do so.

The Namekian's arms seemed to become more bulky and corded and even started to shake slightly as his head looked towards the Servus agent, "I'm sorry, Tamsin. I know I promised you I would never do this, but I don't see any other option. You are free, now" He switched his eyes to his younger sister. " Naturae, this is all my fault, please keep strong..."

He took a long deep breath and scanned the others, "All of you are my family, and I"m sorry it came to this. Had I had thought it was going to be this bad I would have done this long ago." Tears and sweat began to pour from the Imperfect Namek, without his ability to stop it. Tamsin met his eyes and tears began to match him. Maleficus Nova, The New Evil, could only try to force a smile, "If Father would been here. He may have even smiled. I'm sorry but forgive me for what's about to happen..."

Many of the Horsemen looked to and fro trying to figure out what was going on, all but Tamsin.

"WHEN DARK MEETS LIGHT", Maleficus shouted. The Namekian's tears were now his violet life force, mixing with his sweat, forcing streams of a light purple to pour down his face.He couldn't see the Servus Maid anymore so looked back to his target, who was most likely thinking it was about to be an attack on him, but it was going to be something much more different. "I, MALEFCUS NOVA, SON OF RETANE, THE GOD OF DEATH", The Jade Fiend struggled for a moment, nearly wavering as he thought about the look on Tamsin's face, but dug deep, knowing no one else should have to die, other than his enemies and those that wanted to hurt his people.. "AGREE TO TO MY BIRTHRIGHT!"

There was a moment, if only brief that he had a chance to change his mind.

He didn't.

"DEMON FORM!!!"

" NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Tamsin broke free and ran towards her master but was sent backwards by the power as he pulled the orbs apart and slammed them once again. There was a flash of light and everyone seemed to be blinded momentarily

Above the commotion only Tamsin could be heard crying, "You guys don't know what we just unleashed."

"No! I need you to think deeper into the past!" Somewhere off in the distance, Arith called out, beckoning Retane away from his incoorpreal form. "Further! I need you to remember why it all started! You have to know! YOU MUST REMEMBER!"

The voice echoed in his head and there was a flash of lights as things started to run in reverse. It was slower than expected and the Namkeian found himself looking on at a few scenes, most of them he couldn't understand. Nor was he sure he wanted to. Deep down he felt what might be descrbed as sadness, yet he was unsure why.

Then there was another flash and for a moment he looked down upon himself, stepping out of a portal. As he did, it was as if the Namekian became his own entity.

----

Retane stepped through the portal with Enroshia following close behind. It didn't take but a few moments for the Emerald Warrior to inhale and to know he was back on Earth, in his own realm. The Emerald Warrior looked back through the opening, meeting the eyes of five of his offspring and the rest of The Horsemen he would be leaving behind to carry on their own legacy. Some of the eyes were wet while others faltered, but stayed dry. Deep down somewhere in the Namekian's gut he wanted to try and offer them comfort, perhaps tell them that he would see them again. The God of Death didn't because he knew that it would be a lie.

A single tear left his eye as he offered a weak smile. It would be the last time they would ever see him again. As the portal closed he turned and let out a deep breath, shaking his face free of the drop.

The Namekian had just left Omniverse and it was bittersweet, if that word would even come close to how he was feeling. Retane had become strong enough to rip free of the curse that had once weekend him and sent him into the Limbo. He had just powered up and with the help of Enroshia, had opened a rift, allowing Enro's own comrades from Lythia to return to their own plane, as well as help the two come back to their own plane in his own Universe.

Retane gathered himself after a few moments and looked to the Mystic Swordsman. Enroshia met his gaze with his long white hair, his hands tense and wide open as they both knew the next steps that would happen. First the Emerald Fiends's eyes flashed a bright green light, and both figures attire changed from inverted green and orange, to much darker versions with cloaked hoods, covering them both. The Namekian gave a nod, " You know what to do next."

The Lythian gave a nod as he opened up a portal and looked back before he jumped through, "Try and stay alive till I get back!"

The Namekian was left alone then, if only for a minute or two. While he waited, he took a moment to take a breath and let the weight of every decision he had ever made, and was about to make, sit in. It was his own actions that had lead him to this point in time, and deep down he was okay with most of it. He only wished he could have saved a few more. Retane let out a snicker as he realized how foolish it was to think such thoughts, being an Arbitrator of Heaven and Hell, as well as a God of Death.

"What's so funny?" As if on cue, a figure appeared in front of him. Retane recognized him instantly, though he was clad in different attire. The Jackal, a bipedal dogl-ike figure, who once stood as tall as the Namekian, seemed to have grown in stature and while he was still clad in Egyptian garb, it was much different. Other than the jewels and gems that sparkled in the the light, the figure wore mostly black, outlined with gold.

Retane stared on at Anusis, the Emerald Fiend's grin becoming a wicked sneer, "Your face is, kinda. You look as if you just saw a ghost."

If the Jackal was annoyed, he showed it, bearing his fangs and summoning a violet elongated scepter with an axed blade at its tip. "A ghost?" Anusis barked. "More like a soon to be distant memory. I'm not sure how you managed to escpae Limbo, but I promise you wont have to worry about that this time."

The Emerald Fiend blinked for a second, his wicked grin widening to match his foes, but adding a low growl. "You're right. I won't have to worry about it this time." Almost instnatly, Retane summoned his Reaper's Scythe in one hand, and summoned the Glaive of Dante, a wicked Pole-ax with a sharp curved blade on the front and the back was schraded spikes, in the other. "Idon't have to worry about it this time. Before this is all over you are going to wish you never lived."

Retane was the one that acted first, slashing downward with his pole-ax. The Jackal parried it away and brough the staph down in time to block the scythe from just barely collecting his ankles. Anusis was quick to respond, his eye's shooting beams of energy at the Namekian's stomach region, while the axed-scepter shot a blast at the Emerald Warrior's hand, causing the Glaive to be tossed back and stick into the ground somewhere behind him. The Namekian took the abdomen blast in stride, letting his feet dig into the ground.

The Namekian Fiend let out a low growl and slung his curved blade at his foe. The Reaper Scythe quickly changing itself into a chained weapon, and before the Ancient Egyptain could react, the chain had wrapped around the Elder-Axe while the blade had sunk deep into the Jackal's shoulder.

Anusis looked at the chained scythe and the predicament he was in and couldn't help but let out a weird, barking laugh, "I know you, Retane. This move is nothing to me." The bipedal canine reached with his free hand and removed the blade from his back. Nothing flowed. No blood. No energy. Not even sand.

The Namekian cocked his head, dropping the chains, "So, my normal moves wont work? And you have studied what you knew about me and tried to get rid of everything that you knew involved me right? Pretty much meaning that I should just give in to you and accept my fate?"

Anusis grinned, a low growl following, "Exactly."

The Former God of Death gave a nod and fell to his knees, with his head bent down, extending his neck. "Then I guess you are the stronger of the two, and I only ask that you are quick about it."

The Current God of Death could only let out a chuckle, raising his axe, not to kill but to boast in victory. "You are right! They will make monuments of this occasion, where I Killed the God That Never Was! And it will be Glorious! I will be known as Anusis the Avenger! The True God of Death, and rightful heir!"

The Emerald Fiend winced at every word, but sucked it up as he had heard the strange whirling noises as if a handful of people had stepped through what sounded like a portal. At long last, the Namekian heard the axe starting to come down. This was it. Enroshia and Retane had known this was a likely scenario and while they had a back up plan, this was the worst case one. Those coming through the portal were seconds too late to assist and they were about to watch him die.

An orb of energy hit the back of the Would-Be Executioner's head, causing the axe to nearly miss Retane's antennae and sink into the ground. The two God of Death's both jerked their heads into the direction of the blast, both seeing a huge blue Dire Wolf looking back at their direction. Enroshia, Retane's son, Maleficus Nova, and his closest companion Tamsin stood close to the over sized wolf and before anything could be said, the Blue Canine charged at Anusis. The God let out a growl bringing his Elder Poleaxe up and down upon the charging wolf as she leapt.

He met with thin air.

The wolf had turned itself incorporeal as the blade was close to connecting and passed through it and it's foe. The Wolf continued, brushing it's tail across Retane's chin as it passed by and ran a few feet back, making some distance, as the Former God of Death took the moment to leap back and meet her.

As Anusis turned around to see where the wolf had went, he saw a weird sight. Retane stood there, a single hand resting on the wolf's head. The Namekian took in a deep breath, letting out a low growl, before answering the confused face of the Current God of Death. "This is Lone. She once harbored my soul. After I became the God of Death, we split ourselves apart. I let her be her own self. When I was working on becoming higher and stronger, I messed up and unlocked a path I couldn't control. Lone sensed it and came to my aid and allowed me to share my burden with her, Lone's innocence being able to contain and control the Dark."

Retane paused for a moment as he glanced to Respawne, his son, who had taken the name Maleficus Nova. He looked to Tamsin, who's blue eyes were staring dead at him. Before anything else could be said, the Current God of Death, barked, making the attention get turned back to him. Once he knew he had their attention, the Egyptian God let out a growl with a sneer upon his face. "So what are you trying to say, exactly? You need a dog to help you fight?"

Retane narrowed his eyes, "She's a wolf, not a mutt like you." The Emerald Fiend's hand glowed a white light, then dark, then grey as he kept his hand placed upon Lone's head. "But, what I am saying is, is that I knew someone would come after my position in the Pantheon and that people loved mine mostly. Being God of Death, people think it just means killing things and all that. But, what i'm saying is, after I realized the potential I had, I could unlock a devastating power. I called it Demon Form. I couldn't control it. But with Lone's help, because we were once the same being. She helped me lock it away."

Retane looked again to Mal Nova, and his Second-in-Command, noting they were actually listening. Their eyes told him enough that they seemed to know what he was talking about. The Emerald Fiend couldn't help but feel proud for a moment, and sad the next. It would be short lived, for now at least, as he turned his gaze back to his foe.

By now the auras of both Lone and the Eldest Namek had kicked up, their colors flashing white, black and mixtures of the two. Anusis tried to fire a beam to interrupt the shenanigans, but, an unseen barrier blocked it. The previous God of Death flashed a wicked grin, "You can't stop this. The question is, can you beat me once it's done?"

To answer the Namekian, the Egyptian growled and let out a bark. Above him a plane began to open up, deep in the sky. Retane recognized it as a pocket verse similar to one he had created himself, if not the same one, and knew it was meant to be a source of power. The Emerald Fiend didn't flinch, instead he turned his attention to his comrade. "I'm sorry Lone. Thank you for holding onto it for so long and looking after them."

Lone jumped up and pawed at the Emerald Fiend's chest, as Retane placed his hand upon her head for the last time. With a flash it was over. Lone was back to being just a Dire Wolf with no more burdens.

"Lone, do me a favor. Keep them on the right path. Protect them! Guide them!"

Lone answered scratching at the ground, but turned her eyes toward the scum that had brought them to this point. To her Anusis was a pissant that couldn't get their way, but at the same time, it was a reason it had to come to this.

Retane spread his hands one last time as a black orb and a white orb appeared in each hand, "WHEN DARKNESS MEET LIGHT!"

"WHEN LIGHT MEETS DARK!" Retane slammed the orbs together, "GOD FORM!" The Namekian's arms bulged as he crouched down, trying to use all his might to force the white and black orbs together. It looked almost as if they resisted, but this was nothing new to him. He had been down this path before, being the creator, or at least the discoverer of the Dark Meets Light techniques. ------The Emerald Warrior knew that the strength he had needed to use to push past and unlock the power should be there, and was just within his reach. He just had to dig deep and find it.---- Lone stayed there momentarily as Retane's eyes flickered red and black just for a moment, the veins in his forehead doing the same thing. Lone pawed at the Namekian's foot one last time before leaping out the shielded barrier.

Anusis took the opporunity to send a wave of violet energy dashing at the unprotected wolf. It was quickly intercepted by not one, but two blades It was Enroshia, with his fabled curved sword, Vaker, and Desion with his straight sword, Nofugi, named after his one stance agasint his current comrade, Enro. "Thought we-weren't s-upposed- to int-tervene" It was Des, the black-haired Mystic that had spoke while he nearly matched his predecessors speed.

"We aren't!" Enroshia barked as he assisted in reflecting the beam of energy deep into the sky, only to dissapte as it met its conclusion. " But, this isn't about gettinging involved. This is about someone cheating their way into a position and using a curse that could erase us all. You, me and everyone we ever cared about!"

As the beam was taken care of, Desion could only wipe his brow with his free hand and shake his head again, "Like you both wound up doing when Tamsin was at he verge of losing her life and her soul, right?"

If there was ever a time that Enroshia, the Leader of Lythians, one of the Original Mystics, was stopped in his tracks, it was now. He knew that Desoin had every right to be mad. He knew what Des was destined to be. But, for a moment, and just for a moment, he was proud that again, the Mystic had made his own choice to interfere, knowing the consequences, and not caring, and once again challenging his own authority.

Quickly he shook his pride away, seeing the pain deep within the raven-haired Elf. Enroshia realized that he had fucked up. Not once, but many times, and this was one of them. And nothing he could say to Desoin could ever make it right. The white-haired warrior and Retane had made specific choices back in the day, and could have intervened many times in the lives of Maleficus Nova, Tamsin Suzaku and Desoin, as well as their other comrades. Back then, they were under strict commands not to do so. Even a God and and Arbitrator had rules.

Desoin had resented Enroshia ever since that one moment they had let Tamsin nearly die, and Maleficus Nova having to house her soul by sharing his own body. The fight between Desoin and Enroshia had never been settled, and while the black haired warrior wanted to unleash his rage upon his kin, there were other things that were more important.

By now Lone had made her way to safety and looked back at the situation, only to turn her head up and bay at the now darkened sky. All eyes turned to focus on her, if only for a moment. She stood next to Tamsin and Mal Nova, and whether it was for comfort, or protection, it was anyone's guess. As she called out towards the sky, it was almost saddening, to the point of making hairs raise, and skins crawl. Maleficus Nova, the Jade Fiend and Demon of Namek, even shuddered, but even he looked from his father and towards the sky as she kept going.

There was just one person that understood Lone, and what she was saying. Only one person's eyes weren't looking to the skies either. Retane was still struggling to reach the next level. He didn't care if it killed him. The Elder Namek was so close, he could taste it. He was the only one looking at her, seeing her tears vanish into her fur, and knowing she was crying for him. She had accepted it, and there wasn't going to be anything she could do to stop him. She promised to look after them and keep them on the right path. She promised to give her life to protect them all, until her last breath. Most of all, she promised no one would ever forget what he was about to do here today.

As a tear fell from the Namekian's eye, and slowly reached the ground, he found it. The Namekian God of Death found the dormant path within him and his eyes flared with golden energy. The energy expanded outward as it encompassed the entirety of the black and white barrier and seemed to be absorbed by the Namek within. There was a moment of silence as the others, even Lone put their eyes upon the New Namekian.

"I heard you..."

"I heard you..."

It was the first words the God Form Retane spoke, as he knelt there on a single bent leg, using one hand to clutch the ground, the other resting upon his high knee, as he seemed to stabilize himself. If there was a visible aura, no one could see it. However, the grass and debris seemed to move away from him with each passing breath. The shield had vanished with the implosion of energy and for a moment, the Namekian God of Death appeared to look vulnerable. But, it seemed that his weakness was quickly diminished as he rose up.

Retane stood there as he adorned a subtle grey garment, similar to his usual look, but there was no cloak. The saturation of his cloth was neither too light nor too dark. If anyone looking were to describe it, it was the possibly the perfect balance between the two. The Namekian God couldn't help but take the time to look at his son, seeing his curious gaze, and was unable to stop himself from feeling a tad upset. He was sad that it had come to this, but as a God, and the creator of this chaos, the new Retane knew what he was destined to do.

"I heard you..." The Namekian's eyes started darting to everyone in the area, even Anusis, but finally landing upon Lone. She had stopped howling and sneezed as he looked upon her. "I heard you as you cried for me not to do this, as you begged me to find another way." Retane took a step forward, his eyes glanced to his foe for a second. "I heard you, when you did your best to make sure that our legacy would continue on, and when you finally confessed what I needed to unlock this power." Retane let out a weak grin before it turned into a frown. " I'm also sorry for the pain you endured and the sacrifice you made. It's all my fault."

Anusis barked in anger as his Axed-staph appeared in his hand and with a stomp, a blast of energy was sent in the direction of the Angelic Namekic. Retane only turned his head, and extended a hand, a cone of energy grasping and simply deflecting the blast at his foe. "Sit down until its your turn, fool!"It looked like Namekian God really was in control of the moment.

Retane didn't care nor need to know that his foe was sent sprawling backwards. He took another step toward The Second Generation of Horsemen as his sights turned upon Tamsin. "I heard you, too.. I felt you. I know everything you went through and there is nothing else I can say other than, I am sorry. I'm sorry I was too late. I never meant for you to suffer this much... Nor anyone else." There was a pause for a moment as if Retane looked through the Servus Maid, before what seemed to be a slight tear that appeared to roll down his cheek. Perhaps it was just her imagination as it seemed to dry up quickly. "You are strong, and will get much stronger, but the tears you shed, I wish that I could stop them. It's all my fault. I am deeply sorry."

Tamsins's eyes crossed and she wore confusion upon her face. Before she could question the Original Horsemen, the Elder Namek's gaze was upon his son, and her closest comrade. "I heard you the clearest. I know your rage; I know your anger; And most of all, I know your pain. It's all because of me. Had I done just about anything different, perhaps it wouldn't have come to this. Perhaps there would have been another way to save you from THIS pain."

Maleficus Nova tilted his head, glancing from his father, then to Lone, and from there, to Tamsin and finally back to his father, trying to understand everything. However, his face seemed mostly uncertain of everything that he was hearing. This was not like his father.

The Emerald Fiend looked from his son, The Jade Fiend, to stare into the eyes of his Partner in Crime, Enroshia, who stood next to Desoin. "I heard you, as well, old friend. I heard the anguish you felt, when you understood that you weren't strong enough. I knew the weight you carried, when you tried your best to look after them when I wasn't there. I'm sorry it took me so long to get to the strength you needed. But, I am glad to have met you and the other Lythian's, as well as your offspring. It will do the world here a burden once you leave for good..."

Desoin's eyes lit up with curiosity and put his focus toward his Mystic counterpart, who could only lower his blade. Des noted Enro's fingers trembling, nearly dropping one of his sacred blades. But, somehow he managed to hold on. Enro looked away for a moment, his breath a bit shaky from the words, before taking in a in a huge consumption of air and slowly releasing it back into the world, and managed to turn back around only to mutter, "I understand. Thank you for helping me the best you could, and I am sorry we couldn't have met and ended on better conditions. I've always liked you, you dificult son of a bitch."

Before Desoin could process it all, or even ponder what the two really meant, as well as pondering the meaning of 'his offspring', Retane had moved on and was standing over his prone foe who quickly rose to meet the Namekian as they stared eye to eye. Anusis snarled in anger, the other just stayed there, calm and collected. This wasn't the Retane Desoin knew before, or at least it didn't seem so. Something was off, but the Mystic couldn't pinpoint it.

"I heard you, as well. I heard you whimpering in a corner, trying to plot your revenge, not knowing that in the end it would be a failure. I felt the angst within you heart, the desire to take hold of a Throne, you thought should have been yours. I know the regret you felt as the life you so desired was stole from you, never to exist upon this plane again. All your plans, they have and will fail. I would tell you to give up now, but I know you wont..."

"Shut up you fool!" Anusis snarled once again as he swung a fist at the Emerald Warrior. Retane leapt a few feet backward. The Bipedal Canine was quick to follow up, whipping his scepter around, taking it up into the air, and bringing down upon the spot where his target should have been. The blade tasted dirt, sinking deep into the ground. The Emerald Fiend cocked his head to the side, only momentarily, to observe the frustration of his adversary, before forming and loosing an orb of energy directly to the Jackal's face.

The Elder God of Death, leapt forward with a punch, and it landed right between the eyes, just above the Dog's snout. Anusis stumbled backwards, releasing his grip upon his staphed axe and gripping at his face to protect it from a second attack. The Green Warrior, clad in grey attire, didn't hesitate, and sent his body spinning, to bring his leg around in a near full counter clock-wise manner and slammed his heel deep into the ribs of his foe. Anusis hardly budged, but the Namekian went on an assault. His fists flew in with jabs and thrusts at nearly ever part of his body with his feet doing the same.

Each impact connected with a resounded 'thwong'. Still, Retane's attacks were swift and relentless. The 'gongs' going off were loud and annoying enough to make Maleficus Nova twitch a few times and Lone put her head on the ground and attempt to cover her head with her paws. Enroshia and Desoin both turned their heads towards Mal Nova Who grunted and Used his Silence technique to manipulate the wind around them all so they wouldn't endure the sounds of the battle.

It didn't take long before it was evident that the Bipedal Canine wasn't taking much damage, but actually tanking it. Still, the Emerald Warrior pressed on attack after attack. His speed and power was obvious to all the onlooker's. There was even a golden flare on each hit, signifying the 'gong' that had been blocked. Each attack struck and each attack was bided.

"Do you hear that? Do you feel that?" Retane's voice was calm and cool as he kept attacking. "Those are the Toll's of Death", The God Form Namekian's Eyes flashed a bright Emerald flare to show the intensity of the situation.

To match Ret's glare, the Jackal snapped his hand out, with dark ruby eyes.

The Jackal gripped the Namekian by the neck, his thick, meaty fingers lifting the Emerald Warrior off of Earth's surface. Retane seemed to show little to no astonishment, perhaps only giving away the slightest of flinches and letting loose a very low growl sneak through his foe's clutches. Anusis' grip tightened as he tried to choke the life from his adversary. Retane put a hand up to protest, only to have it knocked away by the Canine's free limb.

The stubborn Namek tried again, only to have the current God of Death repel the resistance and reinforce it with a gut check. The remaining oxygen managed to escape Retane's lungs and as the warrior tried to inhale, the Jackal used his second hand to tighten the grip around his throat, backing it up with flexed muscles and a lip curling snarl.

Retane tried to breathe, but his lungs were decompressed like a flat deflated balloon and his throat was the opening, dried and pressed together, not allowing fresh air to enter, no matter how much he tried.

Normally this would be a time to panic for most, but Retane wasn't most. He was exactly in the position he wanted to be in. His foe thought he had the upper hand and was dropping his guard.

As the Angelic Warrior's gaze met his foe's with a stern visage that matched the the opposing's anger, a single green limb shot up and made an attempt to match Anusis, his slender fingers wrapping , or trying to wrap around the Bipedal Canine's wide neck.in the end, it was Retane and he was always good with his hands. They were lethal deadly weapons themselves, and his claws started to dig into flesh.

However, it was weak and his foe only barked out a laugh as he realized he had weakened the Former God of Death to the point that he could barely break skin. At the pinnacle of the laugh however, things seemed to change. The Namekian's eyes focused, as his other hand gently pressed the chest of his enemy. The current God of Death hesitated as he stiffled his laugh, at the look and noticed a glow from beneath his jaw line.

Retane's hand started to glow a bright hot white color as his palm was imbued with energy. The limb was pressed against this foe and ki began to spread across Anusis' entire body, and moved rather quickly. The current God of Death could only growl, "You think that scares me!? Watch as you die before it even goes of! I'm going to snap your neck and rip your head of in front of all of your people!"

The Namekian In God Form's eyes flared once again. His muscles pulsed as he felt the appendages flex and try and wrench his neck in an attempt to sever his head from his spine. Retane flexed all of his muscles, his eyes flaring once again, as he tried to rush the move he was performing. As the lines of Ki finally wrapped around the Egyptian Canine, all Retane could do was utter a single word, and it would be the word that changed the fight immensely!

"Sanctify!"

"Sanctify!"

The word echoed throughout the area, as the bright white energy encased the Bipedal Warrior. At the mention of the name, Anusis was sent back many feet, and before anyone could understand, the Current God of Death had become what looked like a living grenade of Ki about to explode. Retane put distance between himself and his foe, his glare not moving a smudge.

The once Confident Egyptian God started to snarl in protest, but the Elder Namekian only shook his head. Anusis raised his hand to summon his axed-scepter once again. The jewel within the scepter started to crackle with energy before a dark bolt of energy shot up to the void in the sky. If the skies were one color then, they quickly darkened nearly instantly a moment later. It was as black as far as all could see, but the darkness of it all still couldn't seem to penetrate the neutral grey of the Emerald God.

Retane shook his head once again as Anusis barked and swelled in his laughter.

"Give up now or die!" The Emerald Warrior stated.

"Give up? Don't you understand? You are about to die!" The Fiend Jackal stood mighty and confident, "You recognize this Void? This source of power? You are going to die here and now and be trapped within it for eternity in the Realm up there!"

Retane let the words role off his shoulder. If he was confident, he didn't show it. If he was arrogant, he didn't show it. After a long breath however, he started. "You are wrong and right on a few things in that statement." The Namekian focused his glaring eyes again and they glowed as they had done before, but with more ferocity this time. There was another whimper off to the side and if the Emerald God could see it, he would've known that it was Lone as she pawed at Maleficus' feet. The Jade Fiend seemed to distracted at the events to pay any mind.

The the Former God of Death knew what she was doing, or at least trying to stop. A single eye had moistened underneath the bright aura and if a tear was going to fall, it was burned away by the heat. Lone turned her attention to the Serverus Maid and nuzzled at and tried to scratch at Tamsin's feet, trying to get some assistance, but still no one would give her any attention.

"I'm sorry", Retane muttered under his breath. Only four were able to hear the pick up the frequency, but still most of them were confused.

"It's been decided! It's already over!" Retane's voice buckled as he spoke. He knew what was next and everything to come. Still he continued on. The huge wolf had tried to get Enroshia's attention by licking at his fingers by now and finally turned and bit Desoin's hand, who was the closest being to the Elder Mystict. She had done it in frustruation and quickly whimpered as she caught both the attention of Enroshia and Desoin's glowering eyes, but it was the later that seemed to really take note.

"Somethings wrong!" The Raven-haired Mystic shouted!

"Stop!" Enroshia, the Elder Mystic Elf barked as he readied his hands upon his blades. "It is over!" There was a pause from the onlookers. "It was over before it started!"

The bystanders all turned to look at him as he turned his gaze to look back at them, specifically Lone. "I'm sorry, but we knew this was going to happen."

Tamsin, Desoin and even Maleficus Nova looked to the Dire wolf who finally tucked her head with a low whimper. if they had time to exchange glances they would have, but the battlefield hadn't stopped.

Retane let out a low growl, "This is my Void, you fool!" Without a hesitation the God of Death continued. "City of Trion, I Summon you! Show this mother fucker, True Hell!"
