Yaksha, The Anthropophagus





It had been too long, and not nearly long enough. Time had a strange way of stretching and contorting when you got as old as Yaksha; he had once realized without much emotion attached that he'd been listening to a song on repeat for a week straight, even when he was sleeping. And now he was looking back, thinking, trying to wrack his brain. So much was happening, lately. He'd met so many people, changed so much, and all of it had come almost without him realizing it. It left him feeling galvanized, every muscle in his body filled with nervous energy.

Was this how it felt, to live life on easy mode? Was this the sensation mortals got from playing their wish-fulfillment video games? He felt so damn strong lately, like it was all unfurling right in front of him, as he watched. And yet, thinking back on it, he was strangely...disappointed. He'd been at this for weeks now, nearly months, and for all the speed it had happened, he'd never quite expected it to be this slow. Had he underestimated the information networks of the Gotei? Of Shadow Fall? Was it really an explanation as simple as expecting too much from the competition? In a way, that was almost disappointing as well. Hadn't he come to Vegas to take a chance, and start really courting with disaster? And yet where was the risk? He was fleecing the rubes every day, and it was so rare people actually worth his time showed up.

Oh, well. All of this was a topic for another time. He adjusted his tie in the mirror, smiling that crooked, insouciant grin that had gotten him so far, and stepped outside, into the spotlights. It was time for another performance, and today he was actually even feeling a little mischievous. As he got onto the stage, he bowed once, deeply, gracefully, and then spoke in a smooth, warm, pleased tone.

"So...anyone have any requests on what to start with? I'm all ears."

As he said this, Yaksha's face and hands could be seen, indeed...slowly and hideously morphing into ears. Dozens upon dozens of ears seemed to bulge and protude from his flesh, as he grinned a toothy, careless smirk of absolute certainty.

"Ooooh, you've -gotten good-! I'm shaking."

His insouciant grin didn't change in the slightest, but he rose a hand and spun it in a lazy, almost absentminded 'move it along' gesture, ears sinking beneath the surface slowly as he did. He took a couple long steps off of the stage, staring at Ravan, and tapping a finger against his chin. He simply observed, for a few long moments. The masks, the natural-born arrogance, the stance...this was a mover and a shaker. A man who -knew- exactly what he was good for, and wouldn't settle for being undersold. Someone that would, almost without a doubt, see through every one of Yaksha's tricks in a heartbeat.

Finally, he'd reeled in a big fish.

"What would you like to see, then? The King of Rock and Roll? The King of Pop? The late great Tupac? Just kidding. Everyone -knows- Tupac hopped on the hollow train! You should've -seen- his last concert!"

He bowed slowly, deeply, and then rose to his full height, rolling his shoulders. "I can neither confirm nor deny your accusations. I signed an NDA, you understand. Standard practice in this day and age."

He turned towards the crowd, raising one finger and smiling apologetically, giving a helpless shrug as he took a few steps away from Ravan, towards the bar area. He shouted over his shoulder, voice carrying with absolute ease, even through the bone-pounding, headache-inducing pulse of some high-tech dubstep eurobeat something or other. It really did disappoint Yaksha, how many people flat-out ignored the classics.

"How can I help you today, King of Hell? I do hope I'm not being too forward by just laying it out on the table like this. I can only assume you count yourself amongst royalty, with that regal cadence, and that lugubrious mien. I've met -a few- demons in my time, but none quite like you. In my experience, that tends to be the way of the world. None of the knowledge and experience in the world can prepare you for meeting, gasp. An actual person."

"Not a lot, honestly. You haven't exactly been that open about what it is you want, so my sales pitch would fall somewhat flat. I'm aware this flamboyant lifestyle would attract some impressively big fish. That was pretty much the point of all this. I even expected them to be the sort who would take a perverse glee in wanton destruction. It's just been that kind of millennium."

He waved a hand around himself, fingers gently waggling, and nostrils flaring. He didn't speak for several long moments, simply began to run one hand along the surface of the bar in front of him; the wood grain was faintly gnarled and knotted, with a texture very close to that of stone. It was entirely intoxicating, leaving him lost in his own little word for several long moments, as he spoke slowly, in a tone that was almost...distant.

"Propaganda. Tactical acumen. Plausible deniability. Historical relevance. None of those are things that strike me as the M.O. of Shadow Fall. So by all means, smack me around a bit and make your counter-offer. I'm certain it'll be some variation on the same old tune."

He pursed his lips, beginning to whistle slowly, lazily, seeming to have no concern whatsoever for the true bone-chilling power of the man next to him. It would've taken a poker face that put champions to shame for him to hide his fear at this moment, but there wasn't even the slightest tremble or hesitation in the music, as he filled the area.

"You are young. I couldn't expect you to understand."

Yaksha rose his own hand, staring at it with an almost absorbed fascination; he flexed it a few times, watching the muscles twitch and twist, watching the veins faintly bend and then return to their original position as he did so. He remained that way for approximately thirty seconds, before speaking in a weak, almost whimsical tone.

"I did this to myself, you know. I know all the stories of hollows. Tortured souls. Agonized, full of emptiness, longing for something they can't ever get back. Things that deserve to be put out of their own misery. I never saw them that way. Majestic. Respectful. Set. Apophis. Anubis. Khepri. Hollows used to be like unto gods. But...times change, I suppose."

His skin tone began to darken ever so slightly as he spoke, nose and cheekbones reforming slowly, carefully. When it was finished, a man of obvious egyptian descent sat across from Ravan, his head tilting to the side, as he gestured around himself. There was an odd, almost manic gleam there as he plucked up a glass of whiskey, taking a slow sip, and then wincing. He rose a hand to his mouth, stifling a cough for a few moments, and then waving a hand passively through the air.

"Sorry. Esophagus. Think I ended up leading it to my lungs somehow. That wasn't very pleasant. Your offer holds a certain appeal. I can't deny I've been quite curious how exactly Shadow Fall operates. But I think there's one thing about me that you're not quite comprehending."

He adjusted his tie, meeting Ravan's gaze without hesitation, without fear. There was simply a deep, almost limitless sense of zen around him as he spoke. He even reached out a hand, allowing it to hover a mere inch above Ravan's shoulder, as if he were...contemplating touching him, and simply waiting for the right moment. But there was something warm in his gaze and his stance, something filled with a boundless patience, and an earnest desire to hear and be heard.

"You underestimate them. These humans. And this place. It hides a brilliance that you can't comprehend from outside. I've walked among them for a long time, and every year has only made it harder to hate them. They wear masks, too. They can be every bit as monstrous as you or I. Humans truly are...spectacular. So here's my counteroffer."

He folded his hands over his lap, taking another long, deep sip of the alcohol this time, eyes closing as he did so. He stifled the faintest cough this time, hands never moving, and began to move his head from side to side, ever so slightly, as if trying to find some manner of balance...or as if he simply enjoyed the sensation of mass and momentum. As if the very idea of sitting still was almost unpleasant to him now.

"For each day I spend amongst your kind, you spend a day amongst mine. See the sights. Try the cuisine. Test your luck. Let yourself open to the new possibilities. I will be your sherpa, guiding you through this land. We'll learn together. About ourselves, each other. About this fucked up, beautifully twisted world that we inherited."

He opened a single eye, and even with the faint slur in his voice, the crooked motions, it was clear, unmuddied by even the faintest hint of inebriation, or doubt.

"We can start simple. Your name is Ravan, no? I've heard it spoken, betimes. About the...King. Of Shadow Fall. It's a nice name. I considered taking it for myself, once upon a time. It felt a touch arrogant. Perhaps you'd like to guess the name I -did- pick."

"Ravan, you are everything I was promised and nothing more."

The smile on Yaksha's face as he said this was downright delighted, eyes faintly lidded. The explosion of Za Koa was unexpected, and surprisingly potent even by the standards of the people he'd met up to now. He'd dealt with captains and demigods, but never anything like this. He rose, stretching ever so slightly; his shirt rose up, revealing a twisted, gnarled messy patchwork of scars and keloids, just around his naval.

"Vegas has changed remarkably little in the past 400 years, Ravan. Did you know that? Even with the existence of creatures that could single-handedly end the world, even with monsters and demons creeping through the dark of the night...this place endures. If one were the sort to believe in evolution, you'd have to stop and wonder what it is about this place that calls to humans, even now."

He gestured around himself, his stance still relaxed, amused. He reached a hand down his own throat, which seemed to elongate and stretch horribly, the shape of his own hand outlined against it as he rooted around inside, as if finding something. His other hand rose a single finger; an oddly polite gesture, as he seemed utterly absorbed in the act of searching for something, until one could see him yanking...something from his stomach. It was an enormous, shapeless glob of white gunk at first, something that one would've thought of as a towel, or a streamer of cloth. But the very last thing to slip out was a white-taloned claw, nearly large enough to crush a man's head within it.

As soon as the...thing struck the floor, the body in front of Ravan seemed to dissolve, in some hideous stop-motion animation, into an enormous pile of snow. The white, shapeless blob began to extend arms, legs, finally unfurling a head...which had a very long ponytail at the back, oddly enough. The creature staring at Ravan looked strikingly like a snake, and as it rose, it met Ravan's gaze with that same wretched cool that his guest had exhibited the entire time.

"Gigai are, without a doubt, one of the best inventions of the Gotei. It's why I had it at the very top of my list of assets to procure. No one wants to have a conversation with a monster, even in the city of lights. Don't they know the monsters only come out at night?"

A deep, throaty chuckle escaped from his throat, as he bowed towards the king of the Demons, his voice taking on a sing-song tone. It had lost a bit of the previous richness, to be replaced with a sibilant, almost hissing cadence. All the same, it was impossible to deny this was both the same man Ravan had pulled off stage...and the picture-perfect example of a hollow. Except for those eyes. They were expressive, and thoughtful, to a degree one never would've expected from a wild animal.

"I am the Lizard King. I can do anything!"
