Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Vile. The warm, cuddly, loving feeling which bled in this brimming city at the sea disgusted the blood-stained eyes of The Demon Princess. She could feel their warmth, will, love and all of these spirits of many different races living together in harmony. It was revolting to see such a spectacle as the jovial rays of the bright mid-day sun rained down.
To hell with this visage.
Algos was going to burn all of this happiness down to the ground with the amount of scorn in her heart for the woman who called this place her crown jewel. Remembering those feelings of violation within her heart, the woman melted the boundaries of dimensions to emerge a half-mile above the city out of a blood-soaked portal with Cali in chains on her right, and her lovely shell at her right side. "You will pay. My day of reckoning is here, Ulv."
Calm. That was the only word to describe the voice which echoed throughout Minatumi City. There was not a hint of her anger held behind those powerful words. Yet, a powerful effect would bleed into existence soon after. In one fell swoop, the woman unleashed a black vortex of demonic energy across the city. She intended to blast the entire core of the harbor with a chunk of Death Energy to otherwise vaporize, decay and break down the bodies, buildings and earthly material to begin her rampage.
How bad would the impact be if it wasn't stopped? Huge. Algos was a woman that could decimate entire mountains with her raw hands, so dozens of city blocks could inflict a high body count in no time flat. Time was of the essence now.
"You violated my precious Calypso. My heart hurts so much. So now, I'm here to take something of yours in exchange."
If all went as planned, the screams of people crying, screaming and pleading for mercy would be dancing around in her ears. She wanted to smell the scent of iron in the air, the stench of fear, the extract of pain and to fulfill herself on her possessive element of pain and grief. So, to continue feeding her hunger, Algos would descend to the earth with Cali and Ania in hand and reach the burning earth.
As she gazed upon the now shadow and crimson skyline, the woman smiled and had an acidic rain of death energy begin to pour down from the heavens. This was meant to allow more of her influence and presence to spread throughout the city. And, in this way, coat the harbor in a rain of death much like her own heart had these feelings of despair enter when that pure love was tainted by Ulv's touch.
"I am the reaper of your ill-karma, Ulv. Your actions have consequences and I will force you to see that."
Anger filled her inner-essence, but the woman's face never once turned into a roar or shout. Instead, it just rained its venom across the harbor like an unending stream of disdain. As she walked throughout the streets, dragging Cali in chains all the way, the woman extended her tendrils to maul, pierce and skewer citizens of the city along the way. They were all connected to this woman and their deaths would be Ulv's responsibility for hurting her sweet, sweetheart.
"Now face your day of reckoning, Ulv Auber."

Artist: Norihiro Tsuru - Song: Last Carnival - Word Count: 914
” … the blood of my kin.. It’s screaming.”
Emerald eyes gazed out into an inky darkness, before the first fragments of emotion slammed into the demon known as Inami. The unabashed waves of fear and anger, the helplessness and despair. They rocked the boat that had recently found calm in the midst of an unceasing storm. Only just now had she found the capacity to accept love again, and already that tentative bond was being threatened by something far greater.
”It is crying out in fear and hate.”
The thoughts were discordant chaos within the mind of the queen of chaya. They bounced off one another like shotgun shells, sending sparks of power and unrest throughout the very core of the queen of demons. For the first time in a long time, the whimsical smile that adorned the face of Inami had slipped. A frown had adorned that face, and the frown was rapidly worsening as the very air around her was beginning to undergo an upheaval from her vast seas of energy.
” No. Nothing will be taken from me ever again.”
The thought was like a spark, and from it a raging inferno had been alight. Memories and flashbacks rammed through her mind. Of all that had been taken from her, of her happiness that had been destroyed time and time again. Was she about to allow for this to happen once more? Was the script of her life going to repeat itself once more? The thoughts came faster now, and the queens frown turned into a snarl of rage, of pure unadulterated rage, that was rampant through every single fibre of her being. A rage so violent that it could be felt for hundreds of miles surrounding the queen as her demon energy exploded forth like a vorpal sea.
The anger that raged through Inami’s psyche was so prevalent in every aspect of her being that for a brief point in time, any asthavon that lay within their sisterhood would feel only one emotion prevalent in the bond that they were capable of sharing. A rage so all encompassing that it would not be sated until it burned to a cinder.
Through the bond they shared, and the seal of eris that linked them, it was fairly easy for Inami asthavon to find the location of distress. A fact that only caused the rage that lay within her soul to turn from a smoldering anger that lay on the barest borders of rationality, to fully blow out of proportion. Inami had few things in this world that she held dear, her family, and her friends were another. Now both were being attacked.
Soon, the body of the queen would simply vanished as a guttural shriek tore it’s way from her lips. And very soon after, words came through to inami. And with every word said, scarlet colored every single fibre of her being. The necropolis system would surge to life, and darkness would spill out upon the world of the living. Discordant words, guttural in nature, akin to an ancient beast rearing its ugly head would grate across the meager expanse that lay around them.
“You dare harm our own kin? “
The words were accompanied with the very world being dyed in power, as titanic amounts of force smashed into the death energy that sought to decimate the island below. In an unending deluge of might, the very fabric of the death energy was pulled apart at the seams by Inami’s ungodly control over the very environment surrounding her. While some of the death energy may have found its way through unto the inhabitants below, the mass in its near entirety would simply have been dispersed into the surrounding environment.
Was this a feat that could have been done easily? No, not at all, but even so, despite the tyrannical power that was being exerted, there had been no true direction to it, no will enacting upon it to force it to behave in any one way shape or form. It had been instead merely thrown out, a chunk of power with the only intention being to run rampant. The visible impact of this was evident, as the vortex of death energy would have only been able to expand a few blocks in radius before it was crushed, it’s borders going concave like it was being squeezed by an unseen hand. Any attempts that Algos had of extending her influence were counteracted by Inami’s own, her almost unruly control over the environment around her being exerted at it’s maximum capacity.
” You dare act like a petulant child, and BRING SHAME UPON OUR NAME?”
Inami’s voice bolstered into a roar, and power flooded the very world around her. She crossed the expanse that lay between them, her voice building into a shriek that would echoe over the entirety of minatumi.
”ARE YOU RETARDED CHILD? “
The shrieking wouldn’t stop, and instead the Queen of Chaya nation slammed her hand downward, Manipulating the very environment around them to increase the gravity surrounding Algos by over a hundred fold. The sheer force would cause the ground surrounding her to sink hundreds of feed, compacting until it became as hard as diamonds.
”DID WE RAISE A BABOON? IS THERE SOME COGNITIVE DEFECT IN YOUR BRAIN?!?
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? “
Inami’s voice broke at that point, having gone hoarse from all the screaming. But still, her body quivered with anger. The air around her being ripped asunder as she waited for any kind of semi-reasonable reply.

The Flame Of Hope
Artist: Carrotwine - Song: Dark Side Of The Road
Well this was certainly an interesting day. Ulv didn't like to intrude on the privacy of people, and so she kept herself at arms length from the emotional sharing of the Resolve Network, unless explicitly called. So, she had no context with Calypso winked out of it, but that was not much of a surprise. She got the power to help her connect with Mana, and now she had connected with Mana, there was no reason left to stay. But, then the world sort of just exploded into terrifying action around her head while she was reading a new book she had picked up.
Algos, Princess of the Demon World, one of the most powerful beings in the universe - excluding the god-figures like Soul King and whoever the Demons had - stormed into her gaff and started shrieking about how Ulv had defiled Calypso. Personally, Ulv thought it was very tame compared to what she could do. But, screaming anyway. She was exceedingly angry and vengeful, so Ulv was preparing to activate the barrier when more people arrived.
Inami, who seemed to have come in part to help Ulv protect her holdings, but in much larger part because Algos was her sister. Hayden, who was kind of understanding considering he was at war with the people that were attacking right now. And Cyrus. That last one was really surprising. Sure they hit it off last time she met him, but she didn't expect the guy to come around and help her out. Algos' opening attacks were dealt with from that trio and so Ulv didn't have to rush into action. Instead she would put the book away, call in a 5-foot staff from it's stand, and step out into the city. A snap of her fingers activated a large amber dome, fire crackling in it and burning those who would come in arms against her - in this situation, only Algos.
With the dome activated, everyone would make a flatout sprint to the nearest building and hunker down there. Reinforced as there were by the materials of their construction and the saturation of Ulv's reiatsu, they made effective hardened bunkers for anything short of a dedicated attack from Algos herself. And that, was before Ulv held up a thick cartridge and sighed. "Tsk, gonna beat the bloody crap out of her for making me use something so damn expensive" she muttered, before releasing the Bakudo 98 stored inside the cartridge. They were really helpful things, just...two hundred million a pop was a bit rich for her blood.
With the adamant dome spreading across the city, and preperations finished, she would step to Inami's side, and look to her, and then to Algos.
"Don't suppose we can settle this over a pint, ehh?"

Something was definitely, definitely, definitely VERY WRONG. Not only did a portal suddenly open over Minatumi, Arianda also felt the telltale signs of Death Energy cascading down onto the harbor; her home. Arianda ripped herself from her own home, slamming her door open. She was a red streak that soon turned a dark black as she had immediately morphed into her DE Merge; she was planning to throw herself against that Death Energy. She did not want it to hit the city. However, before Ari could do more than absorb a bit of the incoming DE, it got slapped out of the air by a rather impressive amount of force. Then came a scream of someone pissed off to hell and back. The demon looked towards the source, and it was the Queen of Chaya herself; Inami.
Arianda had to smile a tiny bit, as she was not the attacking force; no, it was the other being who Ari had never seen before. With a scantily clad woman and a certain demon Ari knew well. Someone Ari had to do a double take on when she saw her; Caly. Sure, Ari just knew Caly as Mana's daughter; someone she had helped a little bit and even told her that she could stay at her place whenever. However, she did not expect her to be with this demon who was attacking Minatumi. However, Ari had a good feeling she was part of the Eris family in some way; something about her appearance told Ari. However, she looked between the group, and soon slowly attempted to move towards Caly before she stopped herself; seeing another problem.
The rain that was falling was not exactly pleasant. Made from DE and basically being acid rain, Arianda was about to try and stop it. However, it seemed that once more Ari was beat to the punch. Hayden, who Ari had recently met, and a woman that Ari did not know, seemed to be attempting to protect the city as well. Arianda bit her lip as she saw this while she looked towards Caly. She wanted to help the girl, but, given the chains around her and the woman who was holding them; Ari had a feeling it would take a bit to free Caly. Luckily, since a few people seemed to be dealing with the defense of the city, Ari simply did her best to absorb any residual Death Energy that may still be a threat before she turned her gaze towards Algos and Caly.
The demon wanted to get Caly from Algos; however such a thing likely was not possible. Regardless, when Algos was hopefully distracted by Ulv and Inami, the demon dashed over to the girl; pulling the little demon into her arms. She tapped her forehead, snapped her fingers, and tried to get her attention in some way. However, the girl was definitely wasted on such a huge high that Ari may not get a single word from her. She was unable to understand exactly what the hell happened, but given the chains and who was holding them; one can only assume. However, Ari knew she could not stay close. After leaving behind a bit of herself so she could either have Amphilogiai try to help the girl, or at least keep an eye on Caly without staying close to the girl; the demon made a hasty retreat so she could stand next to Ulv and Inami.
"I think the time to settle this over a pint ended when you touched Caly lewdly."
Arianda rested her spear in the ground; the large end of it digging into the pavement, or dirt, as she leaned against what barely was a spear. She was studying Caly, Algos, and the third girl with them closely; watching for openings to try and get Caly from Algos. She may not be her mother, as far as Ari knows, but she sure as shit wants to keep her safe; it was the least she could do. However, depending on what Caly tried to tell Ari when she was near the girl could change every piece of emotion Ari was feeling right now from controlled anger and calculations to impotent, blind, rage.

Algos's face lit up with an expression of pure jubilation when the scent of Inami Asthavon filled the air. Remembering her touch, scent, voice and utter sense of connection to the woman brought waves of pleasure rushing through the essence of The Demon Princess. This was truly a grand day! To get her revenge, to get the love of her sister AND to steal Inami's heart? Oh, Algos could just wet herself from this amount of ecstasy pumping through her nether regions.
"Sister Inami: I love you so much even when you say such mean things to me~"
Of course, unlike Mana, Algos didn't start screaming her affection for The Demon Queen like some raving lunatic. It still held that unnerving calmness behind it, but the woman couldn't help but have a crooked smile which was brought about from her foul heart feeling as if there were butterflies within it.
And, with the amount of suffering pouring in from the city being ravaged, Algos felt the surge of her element of pain, grief, and destruction charging into her body. The woman's face grew flush as the amount of death which was invoked into existence flowed into her body, touched her and started to give the woman quite the high. It was if she was getting drink, after drink, after drink from each life that was ruined, thrown into suffering and otherwise fucked over by her actions. So it is no wonder that she didn't give single care that Inami reduced to a few city blocks; as with the population density of this city, that was still enough to cause such high volumes of death.
Of course, even as Inami screamed bloody murder, Algos gave a placid laugh. As if all of this was nothign but a walk in the park. With her adrenaline pumping, the woman didn't seem to mind the immense change in atmosphere as The fellow Demon Royalty augmented the gravity to be so thick, heavy and unforgiving. After all: Algos herself was on par or close to the Demon Queen. To be brought down by a bit of gravity? Ha! That was a silly concept. No. Inami was going to have to beat, stab and gore this woman to cease her rampage.
"You break my heart, Inami. I give you so much love, yet you reprimand me so hard."
Algos sounded almost hurt in that instant as she slowly made her way over to the royalty. In fact, her eyes started to become misty from being a witness to such hateful wording. Oh yes! Algos was walking slowly toward Inami, but it is not out of physical pain. No, no, no. That physical torment from having someone you love, yearn and care for so much treat you so badly -- scorned. Twas as if a million burning hot stars melted in the essence of her heart and Algos alone was left to bear the brunt of that radiant pain.
...yet it was ok.
It was more than ok.
If Inami hated her so much, she could make her understand just like she did with Cali. Indeed, if they were similar to each other in power, then it took the might of heart, will and desire to make The Chaya Queen be her slave to love. So, Algos let her tears dry before she vanished, appeared before Inami and grabbed her throat with enough force to spilled entire mountains in two. Then, with said momentum, strength and demonic energy did she slam her into the earth and started piercing her entire body again, again and again with such hellish violent assault.
"WILL YOU SHUT UP ALREADY, INAMI!"
This was the first time the woman roared in anger, before her face cocked back, calmed and turned into a placid tone.
"You are just out of your mind. I'll see to it I'll correct your thinking and make you love me like I did our sister. I'm tired of hearing such rancid waters drip from your mouth as I'd never hurt our family!"
And, in that motion, Algos summoned forth another cluster of hellish demonic energy from her sleeve to begin severing the attachment Inami held to her powers. As, with each blow she served to her body, the Demon Princess sought to rip apart the connection to her powers numb the sensation of strength from her being and then decimate the symbol of strength which the Chaya Queen was because such ridiculous navie notions of "retarded nature" uttering form this woman's mouth grew to be a stain on her otherwise pure heart.
Of course, Algos's senses were ever so on point. As, even if Inami were making moves to attack, The Princess wouldn't waste time firing off a burst of death's energy straight forward Ulv. The likes of which may very well consume this entire vicinity as it's raw potency were enough to outright strip away mountains with relative ease. As the intent was to vaporize, decimate and otherwise destabilize the particles of Ulv's existence to the point of great pain.
Though, Algos was surprised when none of her Death Energy had been released. There was a massive boil up of energy within herself, but nothing came out. Again, again and again; the woman tried and nothing but air came out. So, coming to a quick conclusion that someone in the distance was jamming the essence of Death Energy, The Demon Princess had only this to say: "You fucking bastard."
Snarling with a high amount of disdain in her mouth, the Princess decided to start tapping into her demonic energy instead in order to achieve a similar effect as trying to summon her death energy brought forth bleeding into her right hand. As the woman's wrist could be seen dripping a high volume of blood as there was pain associated with trying to bring this power into existence.
All the while, the woman made sure to extend her tendrils out of her spine, move at supersonic speeds and pierce Arianda straight in the gut the minute that the woman dared come near her. As, in this way, she'd soon have a shield around Cali which was drenched in the woman's demonic energy and potent enough to otherwise equal an elite durability or so through the potency of her demonic magic and energy. So, even if Algos failed to skewer Arianda, it wasn't as if that dome was going down anytime soon around Cali. So, she snarled at the women and asked this:
"It's simple: I'm going to skewer that woman Ulv there until I'm satisfied. And when I'm done with her, I will take my sister and love her in my own way. If you all plan to get in the way of that, I'd be more than delighted to rip you full of holes as well~!"

Please play the music for this post. It's important for the setting of inami's mood."
Artist: Citizen Soldier - Song: Weight Of The World -
Foreign energy tried to assail her being, and that was probably when the queen’s heart completely broke. It was when the light left her emerald eyes and only a dusky inevitably was left. It was when the queen's angry countenance fell into a frown and her dull voice echoed towards her misguided niece. It was then that her hand rose, the very air condensing into something harder than diamond, the very molecules rearranging themselves to become something durable enough that when algos smashed into it, it would not buckle. It wasn’t a terribly grand construct, but considering it used 5% of the queen’s unholy energy reserves, the durability of it was enough that the box that had near-instantaneously formed around Algos wasn’t going anywhere any time soon.
”So in the end you choose your anger over your love.”
A sigh escaped Inami’s lips as her body suddenly was awash in shadowed mist, the foreign force that sought to assail her soon being smashed apart by her superior strength and control. Was it an easy feat? Undoubtedly not, for the queen expended another 2% of her energy reserves to deal with the power that sought to corrupt her being, as the energy sought to tear into her very essence, it would be met by many miniature threads that existed within her body. These threads, her hellishly dark threads, would all emit her very presence, and her capacity to shatter, rip, and distort the very realm at her whim. With this in consideration, under the assault of hundreds of these miniature threads, the energy that sought to invade her simply couldn't find any purchase. It was instead rebuffed by the near deitific presence that inami exuded.
” It’s enough Algos. It’s time to stop.”
Inami’s voice was hoarse, as a lone tear trailed down the face of a queen that had endured far too much. Once algos tried to utilize her tendrils to smash into the barrier that had been erected around her, Inami’s hand trailed to the side as many magic circles formed around the barrier, reinforcing it with another 10% of her reserves. At this point, the very realm itself would become hazy surrounding the barrier that surrounded the being within. The tendrils that sought to shatter it would soon meet something unique though. Demons were all known to be able to utilize portals as an offensive means of combat. In this case however, under inami’s own masterful manipulation of the world, a portal would open and shut for an instant in front of the tendrils that sought to smash into the barrier. The force severing them while the queen’s voice echoed.
”I understand that you’re hurting. But can’t you see that you are tearing apart the very thing you wish to protect?”
As inami spoke, the shadows lengthened and the world itself began to act abberantly. While it would not affect Minatumi, cyrus would easily be able to feel the presence that manifested the moment that Inami began to tap into her Oorja energy. The presence of a being that existed within the primordial, and rejected order. The antithesis to law. Inami’s eyes seemed to glow as in her hand a spear of darkness formed, and her energy continued to rise unimpeded.
”But don’t worry, because despite your fear, your anger, and your need to be accepted. I accept and love you algos, and that is why.”
Soon the spear would begin to crackle and hum with vast amounts of energy as the barrier continued to reinforce itself with another 4% of Inami’s power, the vast amount of force that lay behind it being capable enough to stop nearly any known existence in this world. It was a grand barrier that shut down the very space around it, rejecting energy, and interfering with anything that lay within. Which would be what Algos would be dealing with now. The dual interference of Inami’s raw prowess in possessive influence, and the very disruption borne from her very nature, as well as the disruption of the world itself that dealt with her oorja energies. All of these aspects were weaved together masterfully, like a tapestry, they all reinforced one another, forming a near-impregnable cage.
”I will not allow you to destroy yourself, because I cannot lose you to yourself a second time. “
Another tear fell as the queen remembered the day that her connection to neoveta had been severed. The day she truly had nearly broken, and honestly never truly had fully recovered.
”You will be coming with me.”
As the queen spoke, soon, even fragments of her dark energy began to rise to the surface, causing threads to wrap around her body, encasing it in a gown of darkness. Soon though the darkness would morph, and the armor would shift and harden into something vastly familiar to the king of vastime. An armor that would be almost identical to the man that had served the vanguard stalwartly, even until the end. Her voice would remain distorted behind the armor as she spoke.
” Because you are my kin, Algos. Much like I was helped, I too will help you through this trying time. Even if you do not wish for it, even if it breaks my heart. I will remove you from here.”
As if to show her seriousness, the very gravity within Algos’s cage would begin to rapidly condense. The queen expending another 4% of her reserves to essentially anchor that one spot as a focal point, increasing gravity over a thousand fold, enough that algos would feel as if every inch of her body was being weighed down by mountains.
”What is your choice, algos?”
Inami asked as she leveled the spear with the edge of the barrier.

The Flame Of Hope
Artist: Carrotwine - Song: Dark Side Of The Road
Algos was really trying to fight everyone in the Harbour at the same time. Were she to focus on Ulv herself, it would be a fight, certainly. But a fight Ulv would probably lose in the end, despite the multitude of powers she had at her disposal. Were she to focus on Inami, well, that was something else. But to try and fight Inami and also shoot off-handed shit at Ulv was splitting a focus that needed to be fixated on one or the other. Neither was of a level that could be underestimated or dealt with by rote.
To showcase the troubles of splitting one's focus, a giant woman appeared behind of Ulv and interlaced it's hundred hands around Ulv, providing a protective capsule. The energy tried to shatter the arms, but they stood against the storm with a hardiness so great it could be tasted. Being a fully manifested concept of thought, looking at the wolf would give a case of synthesia.
"I know it's my city and I should help out, but this is a family feud thing and I hesitate to get involved" she muttered. The giant, hundred-handed statue dissolved into the same place it had come from, and then Ulv looked to Calypso and that other person. Kicking off to go stand with them, staff held gently and a nod to the two, she watched Inami and Algos and spoke.
"You know, psycho girlfriend sisters are something you should kind of mention before we start doing anything that is going to set them off. If Inami wasn't here, this would have been such a messy situation" Ulv told Calypso. Mind raped as it was, Ulv's words were impregnated with a weight that exceeded The World itself, and would cut through whatever white noise it needed to.
Promise of Victory; The Arms of Lady Caliburn!: Mirja's Full Tulpa (Lovingly ripped off an reinforced by Ulv), expanding on the Six guns of Black Heaven, creates a massive woman floating behind her, displaying a hundred arms in a half circle. Half the arms are ethereal, and the other half are physical and able to cause incredible harm. Lady Caliburn herself is an incredible construct to behold, split perfectly down the middle, so one part of her is a gleaming golden colour, and the other half is a pitch black. The black side of her face holds a warm and open smile, while the gleaming gold colour is covered by a mask similar to Mirja's Vizard Mask.
The Golden fists will seek to prioritise protection, blocking and intercepting any attack directed at her, while the black side will focus on striking at the enemy with powerful palm strikes and chops. At will, Ulv can command the two sides to switch in their duties, or to abandon one in favor of the other, becoming full defensive, or full offence as she commands, allowing her to throw the opponent off guard and deny them their expectations.
As a physical construct, Lady Caliburn has her own Durability, and any part of her can be destroyed by a powerful enough attack. If her head is destroyed, and the physical arms or sixty percent of her body is damaged, Lady Caliburn will dissolve and the mental feedback will prevent Ulv from recreating her for the current thread. Knocking Ulv out can also cause Lady Caliburn to disappear.

Fairly speaking, it seemed like everyone here was completely our of Ari's league as far as power went. Which made her question the choice to be out here while everyone else was seemingly handling things okay enough. At least, if it wasn't for the fact that she would much rather protect the place she lives and not ghost out. However, such thoughts were soon far out of Ari's head as the demon had to attempt a quick side step; likely taking a small scratch to her side before she had to deal with more of Algos's tentacles. At least before she found her back against a building; unable to dodge very easily. However, soon Algos's tentacles were trapped by a barrier made from Inami's creation. Ari could breathe a bit lighter as soon as Algos's attacks were currently being dealt with by a barrier; and the little demon was likely not her biggest point of contention. However, this was not Arianda's biggest issue.
Something was horribly, terribly, wrong. The second Ari tried to move from her position, she collapsed to the ground in nearly blinding pain; her vision becoming blurry. With a cursory glance at her right hand, her scissors impaled into the ground next to her thanks to her sudden fall, it looked like her skin was destroying itself and putting itself back together at the same time; like something had been purposefully targeting the Death Energy in Ari. Little did the demon know, Hayden and Cyrus were above Minatumi, or nearby in some way, causing the nearby DE to be destroyed with extreme prejudice; unfortunately, that included Ari something fierce. In an attempt to rectify it, she reverted back to her shifter form, back out of her DE Merge, in an instant. But it was too late, the DE inside of her had already been exposed; and she could feel it getting worse and worse as the moments rolled by.
She was dying. Or at least Ari felt like she was dying. The sensation she felt was far too familiar as the DE inside of her body started to be destroyed, and destroy Ari by consequence. Whoever was causing this effect, Cryus and Hayden, had a vast deal of power and energy that Ari did not have. Regardless of that, she knew this entire situation had gone from bad to worse. Her breathing was heavy, and light, her vision blurry, and everything about her body screamed with pain. She had no idea if anyone noticed her, but, Ari felt like Death himself was coming to claim her soul. At least until the demon punched the ground next to her; waking herself up a bit as she tried to remain focused. She. Would. Not. Die. So, in the brief moments she may or may not have, Ari did her best to come up with a solution.
"We have to break your connection to my mom, Ari; otherwise neither of us will survive. Don't worry about losing me, I'm attached to you now; not the seal. But if we don't break it soon, we will die; and I would prefer not to die again! It's not pleasant!"
The voice of Amphilogiai came from her mind, or at least, that's how the demon perceived it until she looked at the little demon next to her; eyes alight with both concern and determination. They were such a bright blue... And Amphy looked like she could be Ari's sister... But, once more, Ari had to focus on the task at hand. She would not die this day. She had someone she wanted to live for now more than ever; someone she wished to return home to. What was the only option she had? Remove the DE. The method? Destroy her Eris Seal and break her connection to Mana; otherwise, she would not survive. Amphilogiai would not survive. Ari could not let Amphy die, again, and she was determined to return to Kita. So, after gritting her teeth, Arianda growled in some determination as Amphilogiai walked her through the process.
It. Was. Painful. The DE that continued to destroy itself as Ari did her best to fuel her efforts. It took enough effort that dying was easier; but she had already decided that living was what she wanted to do. As Amphilogiai walked her through the method, she gathered herself in all senses of the term; preparing and preparing. She found her connection to Mana, metaphysically; and then she grabbed onto her stomach where her Seal was for the physical connection. Then her energy surged throughout the entire city as Arianda needed what she could get. She needed the energy that she possessed; all the capability to shatter a mountain she had.
In that burst, two things happened that Ari really could not explain how she did even if Amphilogiai tried to explain it. The only thing on Ari's mind was to protect the life she was about to lose; to protect her ability to live with Kita. In a burn of energy that consumed at least most, if not all of Ari's energy -- At least 50 to 60% -- those two things that happened burst out. The first was that Arianda's and Amphy's mental cries of pain ran through the telepathic connection to all those who possessed the seal of Eris, and the creator, before it was cut off right as the second thing happened; in which Arianda's seal burned red hot on her skin, snapped in half at the ring, and left a burn on Ari's skin of the result. It was like someone took a rusty pair of shears to a nerve in Ari's body and did their best to cut it but only succeeded after cutting at it 500 times. Generating so much pain both mentally and physically. That second thing was the forceful destruction of her connection, her Seal of Eris; and every single power Mana had gifted to her with the seal. Her Eris Powers, control over conflict, and, finally, her Death Energy and all of it's benefits. It was gone... It faded like the comfort of old days gone by; but felt good despite everything. Her energy was intact, diminished thanks to the over all effort; but it hurt, it hurt so much that Ari could not speak as she sat against the building. the DE inside of her had been completely dispersed as it was no longer available to be destroyed. Her body, lucky no vital organs had been damaged or destroyed, was regenerating in the after-effects of what happened. But it all hurt so so much...
But now, her Eris powers were gone. Sure, the energy she had gained all those years were still present, as was a consent only telepathic connection to Mana; but everything that was not part of Ari and was a gift from Mana was all gone. Soon, Arianda found Amphilogiai in her arms, in physical form still as she hugged Ari; and Ari was hugging her. They had survived; but at the cost of much. It would do far more than just leave Ari without her Eris Powers, mentally at least, but she had survived in large. The two beings, red and blue, shaking in the aftermath of the immense effort they had done; in what they were forced to do because of Algos. She had broken her seal from, and her connection to, Mana Asthavon; and by consequence Eris. And all of them would know. They may not know Algos was to blame in the long run, but, all Ari could do was sit and watch as hell unfolded in front of her.
However, little did Ari know, she did far more than just break a part of herself in order to survive; she may have just caused the greatest conflict between the children of Eris. However, she didn't care while she held Amphy in her arms. She had wrought great change in herself, and likely in others. She would bounce back, given time. But, as Ari sat there, only able to protect the Child of Eris that was in her arms; bound to her very life... She was determined, as the Resolve Flame burned a bit brighter inside her, that she would never fail to protect what she wished to protect never ever again.

Artist: N/A- Song: N/A- Word Count: N/A
Calypso was lying on her side, her body relaxed against the asphalt by Ania, as she watched the chaos with nothing more than a glazed stare and giggling as her chains rubbed against her body. Pure bliss blocked out everything reality offered. Drugged up the nostrils in her sister's love and blood, she didn't want to let go of that sensation, that love, that peace. She just knew everything would feel better when Sis was done, no worries, no fears, nothing to be afraid of...
The Eris child who had been with her from the start was screaming at her with within the confines of her broken mind tried in vain to get the girl to listen to her. Frustration and anger, two things Pseudologoi never outwardly expressed, were burning the woman as her parted lips bared sharp, white incisors. She would fully, fully ensure Algos was punished. The swear to remain hidden was thrown in the trash for all the serpentine trickster was concerned of. One crucial, crucial thing was horribly violated, the one thing Pseudologoi dared not to infringe upon; The young one's ability to make her own choices and bear control over her own life.
Algos will pay, but she had to get the creature she so tenderly cared for to wake the hell up and do something. Her yells did not reach her, her limited reaches of power did not reach, she needed something, something to latch onto..
Then, she heard the powerful voice of Ulv, sensing the immediate change in the girl's emotional state. Shit, was this what she had to use? Her red eyes dimmed, soon a sigh escaped her acidic lips,
Forgive me for what I have to say next, Calypso, but you have to wake up.
Calypso's absent gaze was on Ulv, it was a connection, back to reality. And an opportunity Pseudologoi would not waste. A deep breath would come from the woman as she focused what little power she still had possession over, and spoke in a gentle, yet so very acidic tone, like a narcissistic mother speaking as if she doted upon her shaken child,
"You see that, dear Calypso? You've made quite a mess of things. You've given your dear friend Ulv so much trouble, and now you've dragged her whole city of poor innocent little ones in with you. What a mess, Calypso, what a mess..."
Pseudologoi's eyes burned as she spoke such poisonous words to the child, tears would be falling if she hadn't long dried them. It had to be done, it had to be...
As Calypso was becoming riled up from the words feeding her grand delusion, Pseudologoi sensed a familiar presence nearby, in pain, and an even worse sensation. Pseudologoi immediately knew what was happening.
Someone was breaking away from their seal, the Seal of Eris, and as Calypso's gaze slowly met the breaker, all the points clicked together...
Dim gold eyes looked to Ari as her body merely jerked in reaction, sensing that connection violently sever; Agony clawed and screamed behind the veil of bliss her sibling forced upon her. The world was quiet, the sound of fighting was silent, all she saw was Arianda's body, lying and clutching another being. So many thoughts blasted through her mind to the point it became white noise. She never told Ari, she never protected her, this was all her fault, fault, fault fault fault fault fault fault.
The girl was suddenly on her knees, rather than blissfully resting, her eyes wide and staring at Ari's body.
"Don't cage it. Let it roar."
The sound of chains rustling came from her, straining and clacking against each other.
"Run to your mother, Calypso. Don't let anything stop you."
Pseudologoi's soft tones finally reached her as reality quickly bled into her senses. Something radiated from Calypso, the air felt hot and heavy around her, it would be clear enough to Ania and Ulv, and whoever the hell else was close to her, that something was happening.
Within a mere blink of an eye, the barrier and chains no longer held a prisoner. A ceremonious rattle rang from the spot she was in as suddenly her body was gone. Instead, she was kneeled over Ari's body, her eyes dripping with black fluid, as if she were crying tears of darkness. Pain and agony tore and wracked her soul as no amount of thoughts or reasonings would be able to save her from the plunge she was forced to take next.
She was close to Ari's face, eyes wide as her appearance seemed to rapidly change, eyes wide, mouth parting, tearing her cheeks open, and becoming far more rigid, and full of teeth, as a dark smog came from the girl's body, horns growing from her whitening, and soon shadowy locks as darkness quickly overtook her body,
Despite her rapidly converting, bestial transforming appearance, she spoke like a young child scared for their parents, as her head slowly raised as her transformation only hastened, the air thickening and trembling from her energy.
If Amphilogiai were still aware, it would feel as if a presence were suddenly next to her, a familiar voice telling her one simple thing,
"Run, my darling."
Not a single sound came from the girl as pain and agony took her into their brambled clutches, merely a pounding, intense presence to any and all present, as her body rapidly grew and grew, becoming as large, perhaps larger than the buildings that touched the sky.
Her form spilled forth, any rational being likely fearing she would smash the buildings with her sheer size, however no such thing happened. It was like her body was a ghost, merely phasing through the buildings that normally would be crushed from her massive form. While she herself was as silent as death itself, her body radiated a powerful emotional aura in the form of an infectious smog, that would surely inflict the weak willed and uninitiated with panic attacks, agony, and similar overpowering emotions of suffering, spreading across the immediate city blocks to her massive body.
A massive head, one of a dragon's, hung from the sky, the clear source of the smog, as her body formed a single, massive clawed hand, and unlike the rest of her body, was entirely solid, as it crashed down upon, of all people, her own sibling, creating a large indentation of such a strike in the street, cracking whatever nearby that wasn't crushed. And, if she did manage to have her under her massive, scaled palm, she could be grabbed and tightly held...
This whole situation was turning into a rotten bag of rancid shit. Therefore, contempt bled into the veins of Algos as her face turned to a scowl. Yes, there was damage done to this city, but it didn't feel like it was enough to satisfy the flame of love burning within her heart. If only all of these irritating bastards would just let her do as she pleased, this whole mess could be a beautiful array of revenge for her to relish in.
"What? You want me to stop so I can be your pitiful plaything like that miserable mess Neoveta was? Sorry, I'm not your thing to fix, Inami."
The words which uttered out of Algos's mouth were filled with venomous scorn. If The Demon Queen wasn't careful, The Princess even had half a mind to spit her scarlet blood on her fellow sister.
"Too bad. That life is not enough for me."
It only took Algos moments to form her own blood-soaked spear in her right hand. It wasn't terribly long; only extending as long as the average person's arm. However, the power within it was immense. By having a physical form for her power to be sealed in, The Demon Princess summoned her possessive power of Grief. With one motion of the hand, she sent this weapon hurdling toward Inami at supersonic speeds.
As this spear broke the speed of sound, a sonic boom erupted around them that could kill dozens of citizens around them rather easy from the sheer force and cause the demon Queen immense pain by means having that force erupt all over her body; inducing broken bones, deafened hearing and the loss of her balance. Yet, what was more important was its target. It was meant to strike her stomach and send the wave of Algos's contempt for the woman into her essence. For, even if that barrier dared to stand in the Princess's way, she used ten percent of her own power to at least make an opening for her weapon to pierce through and for Inami to experience that weight on her soul.
"You want to feel my pain? Then let me enter your heart, sister."
Those words were drenched in disdain as the woman let out a cold sigh, clenched her hands and sought for the spear to detonate in a hellish burst of blood light. The likes of which would ignite her feelings of hopelessness, powerlessness and a desire for great will and strength as she sought to possess the things which were near and dear to her heart.
"I refuse to be weak anymore, sister. I'm tired of it. If I let this go, then I'd be disgusted at myself for not standing up what I love and I'd be living the same miserable life as Neoveta."
Snarling at every sentence, the woman's face was a mixture of feral fury and twisted confusion as she felt the burning memory of Neoveta's own memories intermixing into her consciousness. Yes, it makes sense doesn't it? They were the same person, so it stands to reason she would begin crying when feeling the recollections of that weak person they used to be. Always letting people take control over her, never speaking up, never fighting back; SHE HATED IT SO MUCH!
So, with her nerve back, the woman let out a scream of anger filled with so much damn contempt that it could wake dead from their eternal slumber. She could feel her body scorching out in pain as the death energy within her felt sickened, set ablaze and as if it were melting her body from the inside out. As she clenched her chest, the woman refused to let this pain stop her as drips of blood started to ooze out of her body. Instead, her own will was keeping her alive as she tapped deeper into her element of pain to augment her healing factor.
Granted -- in this fight? How long could such a feat last? It felt as if that person far away was using every last drop of their existence to prevent her from tapping into that eradicating power of death. So, all she was doing was prolonging the inevitable as she was trying to heal faster than the damage was being done to her body by this field of energy which so vehemently opposed death. So, it showed as the woman was burning through her reserves. 'Shit, I might need to flee.'
That thought disgusted her. This situation was growing more out of control by the second and she hated to admit she got in over her head. But, without back-up or Shadow Fall Forces, this was turning into a fool's gambit. And it made the woman want to cry since she wanted to feel strong in this instance, but the suitable mutterings of failure were rearing behind her as she continued this scorn filled clash.
When Inami began utilizing the prowess of her Oorja energy, the woman couldn't help but feel more of her weight as the woman was seen vomiting out a pool of blood. This was getting more and more stressful as the strain from trying to keep that insistent field of anti-de from breaking her body down was too much. After The Demon Queen furthered her influence, Algos's body started to bleed all over the place as a large pool of her own blood was seeping out from under her.
'No, no, no, no. This can't be happening! THIS ISN'T SUPPOSE TO BE HAPPENING!? WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!?'
There -- was a look of distress on her face. This wasn't going as she had intended and she could feel the power slipping from her hands. It caused her breathing to accelerate, vision to blur and heart rate to increase as the fear of failing and losing control of this was becoming more real by the second.
'Fight or flight, fight or flight, fight -- FIGHT.'
Fuck that. She spent too hard on this to give up. So, the woman decided to press forward even as her fear increased.
"I already told you: I'M NOT YOUR FUCKING PROJECT TO FIX!"
With one monstrous demonic roar which broke the heavens; the entire city would be felt shaking as the woman started to tap deeper into her demonic reserves of power. Since this was turning into an emergency circumstance, Algos summoned forth thirty percent of her energy into a precise outburst of power all around her and Inami. In doing so, she was determined to scorch this entire earth in her element of pain as she induced an influence of Deveta's Suprassing Law to neutralize The Chaya Queen's shield. Given that they both held the capacity to alter reality, having them meet in the middle would create a zone of neutrality where the destructive nature of Algos's attacks could otherwise obliterate 1/4 of Russia if she hadn't had precise control of it.
Still -- this wasn't a get out of jail free card. Far from it. Upon using Suprassing Law, the woman screeched out in pain as she felt her mind becoming further disjointed from the reflection of Deveta, Neoveta and her own ego's intermeshing. It caused the woman to then lay down on the floor as her entire essence was being attacked and she was seen crying as more of her blood started to spew out at an alarming rate.
"WHY CAN'T I JUST WIN?! WHY DO I HAVE TO LOSE AGAIN EVEN IN THIS LIFE?!"
As her eyes became bloodshot, the woman couldn't stand the helplessness of this circumstance. And it was all because of that woman -- Ulv.
At that moment, Ania received a telepathic command to finally leap into action as she let out a loud yelping sound. Since the child-like demon held the body of one of Neoveta's old shells, the woman did hold access to the Demi-Network. So, to not give Ulv a moment to rest, she gave her full undivided attention to the woman. With one howling sound, the woman unleashed a burst of energy toward Ulv which held the capacity to destroy entire mountains; but Algos's controlled Ania enough mentally to condense the potency of it to a few city blocks. In doing so, a demonic roar of power would once again shatter the earth as it would feel as if all war were ringing out in this city.
Granted, during all this, Ania didn't seem to happy. The child seemed to be somewhat distraught as if she were trying to mutter something frantically out of her mouth, but all that came out were silenced grunts as she shook her head at the sight of destruction from Algos's impulse to control her body. It was almost as if she didn't wanna be here for any of this.
Though -- nothing compared to the pain that was coming next.
When their senses finally focused back on the Seal of Eris, both Algos and Ania were seen vomiting blood as the ungodly torment of losing a connection to someone who had been marked by their kin violently ripped a part of their body. No, it was almost as if each of them died as each of the women were seen standing in total shock and disbelief as their frightened eyes gazed toward the sight of a near-dying Arianda. "No...that's not fair...I didn't mean for that to happen."
At this point, Algos didn't even care to pay much attention to her surroundings. Her mind was utterly caught up in the full spiritual, physical and mental pain that her essence was now consumed in by losing the connection Angel Of Conflict had with them.
And then -- fear hit.
What will her sisters think? What will mother think? What will Cali think?
No, no, no.
She didn't mean for this to happen. All Arianda was supposed to be was maimed, a bit injured and thrown in a carter somewhere. Algos did NOT main to put the woman near death and remove her mark.
At this point, Algos felt utterly defeated as the attachment held to that bond caused the woman to drop to her knees.
'This was a mistake, you know that, right?'
In that simple, calm voice; the fragmented echoes of Neoveta's voice spoke to Algos at that moment. She wasn't sure if she was hallucinating or if it was really real, but at this point -- the greater part of her knew she fucked up. She fucked up badly. All she could do now was just gaze at the sight of her sister deforming into this beast of a dragon and begin to feel a pang of regret usher into her soul for whatever hell was to come from her actions. "What have I done....?"
