Within the demon world, Eric was angry thinking about the failed victories nothing has happen good for the mad demon the madness was taking over. This seal wasn't working his anger based reiatsu was kicking as he made a decision."I'VE HAD IT.....THE DEMON WORLD IS LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF TO MY FAILURES THERE NO PLACE FOR ME HERE ANYMORE. FAILURE AFTER FAILURE I CAN'T STAND IT. THE ASTHAVON CLAN IS LAUGHING AT ME NO WAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH......Yes, There is no place for a mad demon here this has to end which means the mad one is going to hell. I must evolve from a mad demon meaning I won't be one anymore but I can't STAND IT. This has to happen or be defeated EVERY FUCKING TIME for the rest of my life.......I'm going an no one better stop me"
He's been pondering what to do after being Mephisto and now a servant to the demon queen things were going his way but it wasn't enough the mad demon needed more power. Every damn time the mad one has been defeated every damn time it should say something the mad demon needed to disappear within hell and become stronger and something greater. Eric Zarathos had been the mad demon for way too long and the madness needed to go it clouded his judgment every time someone has come and defeated him and for way too long this needed to stop. The only way the mad demon could think of getting home in hell was two ways dying or returning back into Seireitei the mad one wasn't a big fan of dying but there was no other choices. He couldn't ask Mana or Khala they had business to attend to and every time they help him during something painful well this time the mad demon had to help himself but there is a major problem. Every time the mad demon would try someone powerful would stop him but the mad demon must disappear no one may ever hear or see him again the training and evolution begins. Eric thought long and hard about the mad demon needed to disappear thus his madness as he started to control the essence within him as his demon army has been given their instructions until his return from hell.
There was no other way the mad demon had to face facts spending his life ruled by another powerful being watching his mad race destroyed by a demon god this has to end for good. He was a mad demon but still that didn't mean nothing now NOTHING being pushed like a rag doll whatever honor the mad demon had it was made into a laughing stock. A mad demon the last of his tribe even the demon queen said it best nothing but a barbaric idiot and she was right it was time to disappear into hell. His power base was set and still the mad one hated losing but no more these powers weren't enough yet even his ziamichi partner knew the truth too. The mad demon wasn't strong enough robbed of his great power asking people for help WHAT THE HELL HAS HE BECOME because it wasn't a mad demon it was a servant boy. Eric's mind was made up the mad demon needed to disappear into hell and become something stronger the mad one couldn't obtain power in the demon world anymore that was true. The more he thought about every defeat and every loss it ends here and mad demon was fed up the loss to that bastard Mephisto was the last straw the mad demon needed to disappear no one will ever see him again. None of his family and friends won't care they had there own business but his friendship with the demon queen arguing with her like that the mad demon saw his mistake quickly. Well no longer.....He'll get his power back his own way it was a mistake to even ask her the thought of it made him as a mad demon weaker as he forgotten his lessons that power is earned not given. The one thing needed to go his mad seal as he rip it out from his body as his power returned back to it original setting for his power to become stronger. Eric came to a realization that he can no longer accept gifts the mad demon needed to become stronger on his own and he wanted to serve Mana again a part of him cared for the demon queen. But being beaten time and time again; Eric needed to say to goodbye nobody would miss him everyone had there own problems and his biggest problems was about to be settle once and for all.
He thought it was time for the goodbyes.....Eric was ready.....
To Mana's Place:
He teleported with a kage portal to the queen's castle and created a black rose from his magic laying down on the ground as the demon queen was on business. Mana told him never to harm her family but once this was done she'll never had to worry about him or his mad antics again the mad one thought hard about this. Eric had something of a good relationship with Mana but she was the demon queen and strongest demon but this time this was something he had to do alone. Then the thought of Khala Asthavon she was the heart of the deveta this was also goodbye to her for his power base to be the same as the original mad demon. Sadly, Eric couldn't ask her for help either the mad one closed his eyes for a moment....it was quite peaceful then opening his eyes knowing the truth. He looked at Mana's realm......The Asthavons were the true rulers of the demon realm they won't have to worry about the mad one anymore. "Goodbye and Relax Mana, You won't worry about me anymore I'll never harm your family ever but sadly....I must disappear"
To Kristen's Apartment:
He teleported with a kage portal to his daughter's apartment seeing his daughter talking to some friends she had her own life now and she's become something better than he once was. He and Miyuki created a good demon child nothing could make the demon proud she didn't need to know what he was about to do and she was happy that was all that matters to him right now. "I can't......You have your own life Kristen, Just wish your mother was around too miss her so much the good parts of Kade Hiroshima's life but now carry on my daughter"
He open a kage portal in the heart of seireitei.....one objective....
Onto his objective as the mad demon appeared within the Soul society the mad one wasn't going to hide anymore and still this maybe the last time anybody sees him. He charged rushing the soul reapers going for a football tackle the mad demon was tackling everybody until the mad demon reached his objective the mad demon saw it the gateway to hell. He was breathing hard the mad demon's mind as he started opening the portal using his magic opening the door with his bare hands....."Eric....Please stop...Why are you doing this?"
The mad demon stops turning around seeing him his own Asthavon clone this ought to be something as the mad demon greets his clone but he was angry in mere seconds. "THAT BASTARD BEATED ME EVERY FUCKING GODDAMN TIME I'VE BEEN DEFEATED YOU WOULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE THE JOKES I'VE HEARD WELL NO ONE WILL HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ME AGAIN. I know your part me and part Asthavon.....Just stay out of my way THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU JUST FOLLOW ASTHAVON ORDERS AND YOU'LL BE FINE. I'M SICK AND TIRED OF BEING DEFEATED THE MAD DEMON MUST DISAPPEAR SO THE SOUL SOCIETY, THE DEMON WORLD, HUECO MUNDO, THE IRAMASHA CLAN AND THAT SUGUIRAN REALM.....ERIC ZARATHOS MUST DISAPPEAR AND BECOME SOMEONE GREATER. THE MAD DEMON'S MADNESS WILL JUST CONSUME AND DESTROY MY JUDGMENT ANYWHERE...EVERYWHERE I GO.....HELL IS MY ONLY OPTION NO WILL DETECT ME AND NO ONE WILL EVER FIND ME EVER AGAIN, I'LL MAKE SURE OF THAT PERMANENTLY. YOU KNOW THIS MUST HAPPEN YOU ARE ME......the good part anyway"
Eric said."Yeah but once you're in hell no one will sense you EVER if you're going to do what I think your going to do. But you .....really I can't stop you....."
Eric opened the portal to hell........This was it Eric's evolution was about to begin a major step......He was about to enter...
