"I’m back, and I’m ready to bring the Darkness with me..."
Demon Overlord Matthew Hinote
Song Name: Under the Dog Music Trailer - Artist: Under the Dog - Word Count: 2280
Matthew was quietly waiting for a response from the weak Shinigami, still watching the boy with curiosity, as the cigarette continued to burn in his mouth. It'd occasionally light up from the flames inside the nicotine wrapping as he inhaled to release a puff of smoke while his eyes observed and recalled a time when he was like that very boy. Obtuse and weak, but bewildered by the world and its never ending possibilities. If anything, this kid might become extraordinary someday, otherwise, if he doesn't take charge of his own existence, he'll find himself falling apart and becoming nothing in almost no time at all. It was kind of sad really. It was as if the Demon's Matthew knew were watching, just going to sit around and let him kill their oppressed citizens, which just credited against them, and he was also growing bored with the fact there was no real fun to be had here. He was so disappointed that he just ignored every word that came out the Shinigami's mouth as to him, it was useless and his words would have no impact at all. He'd maybe kill one or two people, then be on his way and apply the intel he gathered, which is casually what Matthew has done many times, but it would seem today, his call would be answered in kind, which is something Matthew was hoping for.
Since the very second Matthew entered Ireland, he knew he was in enemy territory, and he wanted to poke the danger and provoke it. He wanted to measure it, gain intelligence, and apply it to see what he can make of it for his future endeavors that are coming closer and closer. It took a while, but it wont take long now for Matthew and Ketsu to rise against the Demon race, and to take them down from the inside and claim control of everything that revolves around the darkness of existence. This was Matthew's playground, and he was going to take everything back in due time, but till then, he wanted to play, and that time was now.
The light of Matthew's Blood Moon which shun down upon the people of Ireland, and highlighting Matthew in a dark red aura had vanished. Instead, a bright light now enveloped the land once again, bringing it's people to remember that the day was still its setting, and that the Night was not indeed natural of this hour. Matthew didn't bother to turn around at all, instead he kept his eyes quiet. It makes sense as not only does the Demon Overlord of Darkness prefer dark to think, but he's not too fond of bright lights. It's a sort of common sense for one who continues to live in darkness and shadows. Grinning, Matthew could sense that his Dark Pulse was cut short by the arrival of the guest, and it made Matthew smirk. Of course, Matthew knew he was being observed and that there were demons within the area, but it seems that Matthew's bait has finally grabbed him a real catch here. It's a good thing Matthew doesn't rely entirely on his Dark Pulse to gather all his intel, but instead can also rely on his shadows and the smell of his targets.
Taking a small inhale through his nose purposely a moment after his last exhale of his cigarette, Matthew attempted to gain the scent of the new arrival to determine if they were of a real caliber or not. Matthew's scent focused on the loose blood of the battlefield or the blood of his targets that would allow him to either track or locate blood of his enemies or use to energize himself. Without loose blood, Matthew can get a general scent of the blood type of his enemies and a general outlook as to who they are in terms of race and type. One thing that was certain about the scent Matthew just inhaled was that the one that appeared behind him was a demon, but something caused Matthew to begin shaking. One would not be able to observe it from the naked eye, but Matthew's right arm was shaking just ever so slightly. If observed, they might be wondering why he's shaking? Was he scared? No, in fact, it was just the opposite because there was a scent that Matthew recognized. It was one he was familiar with due to his time withing Shadow Fall and from there, this scent always stuck with him, and was one he'd never forget.
The scent, of Mana Asthavon.
Matthew's expression was hidden, it was unnoticeable and couldn't be read at all from any point of view as even though it was bright, he had his back to the source of light and hid his face within the darkness of his own shadow. His arm still shaking as he took in the words of the ones that appeared with the Demon in question. They spoke, and said some very important words. Words that Matthew was instantly able to use and put together to get a glimpse into who this demon in question might be. He heard the words "Demon God" and "Demon Queen" in the same sentence as child. This could only mean one thing if Matthew could not only sense the blood of Mana Asthavon, but hear that a child between the God and Queen has been conceived. That Mana has indeed gone off the deep end, and given her full existence to his sworn enemy. Of course Matthew also took the assumption in that maybe he was no longer seen as a threat to the core of Demons and that Mana was underestimating him so much that she'd send a child to deal with him? No, that was thinking too deep into the situations right there. There is no reason for Mana to even be within the Living Realm, or in Ireland for that matter, it would be way too coincidental. The fact her child is here though? Well, one could say Matthew's luck was indeed turning around.
"Heh, looks like I am lucky indeed..."
Matthew whispered to himself as he finally turned to reveal his expression. A grin from ear to ear. Excitement within his eyes and blood coursing through his veins so fast that his body could barely handle it. He was shaking for the opportunity this just became. He stared down the child of Mana with eyes burning with passion at this instant, as now this was what he wanted. His slight moment of annoyance was just overcome, and not even a single ounce of alcohol that was within his blood was affecting him at this point. The pressure of Matthew's presence alone just became overwhelming, as only a few people would be able to notice the passion that Matthew just bolstered within himself. The mortal beings wouldn't feel or sense a thing, but the amount of excitement that Matthew is now exerting should be read by the child of Mana.
Matthew observed the child of Mana, as well as her group of lackeys behind her. It was somewhat weird. Touketsu and Mana each had an aura of black, green, red, and gold. It was a general theme within demons of course to take in black, but Mana was all about that green while Touketsu was Red. Shoot, even Ketsu and Matthew took in reds as well. This girl though was all about that black and red it felt too in that she would be better fitted under a theme of Matthew or Ketsu themselves. She could be seen by Touketsu, but by Mana? Now this was weird and Matthew felt it to be so, but before Matthew could dwell upon that for long, the child of Mana finally began to speak. Listening to her words, it was interesting. Matthew was only gone for a couple years, but he gathered no intel of Mana having a child, let alone it being the child of the God and Queen. Matthew's grin widened as he took in the words of the girl and processed them for but a moment. Now she was a child, so perhaps her history wasn't up to par, or her history might have been corrupted by indoctrination in which to cause her to think her statement was pure, but she is a Demon at her core, and Demons are not "Good". It was time to respond in kind...
"Co-existence? You call this co-existence child? You know nothing of co-existence, as Demons and Humans used to live these lands just fine back in days of old. 400 years ago, before you decided to task these people under a false oppressive freedom, Demons and Humans thrived in these lands just fine, as they didn't bother one another. But then again, I should know better that when a cause of power rises that believes themselves a higher cause, they like to force their beliefs on the weak."
Still grinning, Matthew observed every single one of the lackeys that Neoveta had with her. He was getting excited as this was indeed going to be fun. The child showed no sense of fear surrounding the man, and she wasn't representing blind arrogance like the Shinigami behind him. The Shinigami liked to talk and act big, but of course he was nothing more than trash within this world who will get stepped on if he doesn't learn how to grow properly. Perhaps today will make him realize his place in the world and why he's so small. But this girl was different. She showed no aura of fear, remorse, or concern. Instead she only showed a neutral expression and one that was neither aggressive or defensive. She didn't even threaten Matthew, just stated her belief on current living standards as well as to know why he was there. She was curious, perhaps just as curious as Matthew was about everything that has changed in the world. As a child thirsts for knowledge and development, she was after that with what seemed to Matthew to be nothing more than childish curiosity. It was her right to be curious, and that is perfectly fine to Matthew.
"Ah, so you know me Child! You know I used to be a Demon Overlord, but it seems your data is a bit lacking in current specifics. Let me fill you in child on a couple of points of details to help you comprehend who I am. I am the Traitor Demon, the Demon Overlord of Darkness Matthew Hinote. And I'm here to see what's new in this world after I've recovered my completed body. Now, would you be a dear and have your friends step back? Because I would like to help you realize something child..."
With that, Matthew's eyes began to glow a bright red, as if he was activating something to reveal to not only the people within the streets, but Neoveta herself. The master tactician was already beginning his game, and now that the chess pieces have been set, it was now time to see what moves everyone makes. Within Matthew's mind, it was running a mile a second, collecting data on surroundings, structural integrity of the buildings, the amount of people present as well as the potentials of everyone there. All were marked as pawns, but the child was labeled as a White Bishop within Matthew's head. One with great strategy and potential behind her, able to make things happen from the least expected, but also at the same time, limited due to her age and experience. Matthew was the only black piece on the field, the Black Queen. With Matthew's experience as well as wisdom, he clearly had a good advantage in the overall chess board he built in his mind, but this was not the time to under estimate. Matthew made that mistake once against Touketsu to measure himself, and for all he knew, this child could be a White Queen in sheeps clothing. He will have to observe her well. The rest Matthew could care less about as to him, Pawns were meant to be sacrificed for the greater good of the King. While to Matthew they were fodder, fodder can make an impact if placed just right, so he kept that in mind. There was one piece he had an eye on though, and that was the red headed boy. For some reason, Matthew wanted to talk to him, as he caught a slight whiff of his scent when he tried to identify the child of Neoveta. Hopefully he doesn't die in what's to come.
That's when it was realized that Matthew's Darkness was beginning to change under the feet of everyone present. Everyones shadows were slowly shifting and changing, as if they were moving on their own. Matthew kept his eyes strictly on Neoveta, as he wanted nothing more than to play with the kid. Taking a deep inhale from his cigarette, Matthew grabbed it from his mouth and removed it while exhaling, allowing the smoke to dissipate in the air. Matthew was planning something, and he was enjoying what was to come...
"Tell me your name kid, because I'm going to inform you of your first mistake..."
Pointing in front of Neoveta, where her shadow was currently standing, even it was beginning to shift. The moving Shadows weren't a threat yet, but was a message to everyone there. This was Matthew's Power, the power of the Demon Overlord of Darkness. Their shadows, their very darkness is always within his grasp, and they are not their own. The first mistake of Neoveta, was not removing his Blood Moon, but was in fact bringing back the bright light.
"The brighter the light, the darker the shadows..."
