ENTER THE MEGALOMANIAC

Artist: Howl's Moving Castle - Song: Promise of the World

His eyes squeezed shut as he held his arms tightly, hardly moving aside from his body's brief trembles. He didn't care about any of this -- didn't care about what he was seeing, none of that. He just wanted it all to go away, he just wanted the pain to stop, for his own mind to stop going against him and reminding him of everything that he hated about himself or felt insecure about.

Through his blurry, hallucinatory vision, he saw Calypso burst toward him, and just as he was about to move, the image seemed to flicker before him as lightning and fire singed her body, and he saw his Calypso -- the woman he loved, not the broken, abused thing that he remembered from when Algos had attacked Minatumi. While what he saw was constantly going back and forth, what he could hear was clear as crystal, and it only served to bring more tears to his eyes as she held his face and pulled him into a loving kiss.

His eyes fluttered closed as he slowly reached out to hold her, his breathing gradually slowing to a regular pace, remaining silent as she spoke, only to bring him into another kiss, hearing her ask him to let her in -- and Vanyel gave a wordless nod of his head, and he slowly tilted his head back, drifting off to slumber, a peaceful, gentle lull coaxing him into unconsciousness, awakening, sitting down, in a white room.

The walls and floor seemed to move, even if there was no way of knowing that they were, as the heat of the room seemed to grow with each passing moment -- large, steel doors surrounded him. Vanyel slowly looked around, holding his arms and shrinking in place. Calypso wanted to be let in, and she had access -- now, all he could do was wait for her.

Calypso was relieved - She brought his comfort in her back long enough for him to consent, despite the sweet smell of her flesh burning, she didn't mind it, bringing Vanyel in close for a kiss as the two of them fell into unconsciousness, the link beginning as she would appear in his mind.

She knew she likely was going to see some ugly, ugly things - Her power brought emotions and memories to life to form a path of betterment after all, and she knew Vanyel felt and experienced some terrible, terrible things. There was no kisses to make this feel better - She needed to get him to realize and confront these things, no matter how painful it was, or else they would be eating at him for the rest of his life.

She touched down in the white void, feeling how hot the room was as she practically exhaled steam, looking up and towards Vanyel who was cowering across the way. She walked over, until she was standing before him, before placing a hand on his shoulder, coming down to his level, and smiling gently,

"Hey. You ready? It doesn't matter how ugly it is - it won't change how I feel about you."

She placed her other hand on the opposite shoulder, "So let them all show - All of your pain, worry, and trauma. I want to help you."

As he heard Calypso approach him and gently place a hand on his shoulder, he immediately got to his feet and wrapped his arms around her. Finally, even if it was in his dreamscape, the storm had cleared, and everything felt normal again. He could still feel pain rippling up and down his body, and the white void that was the dreamscape was pulsating, moving as barely visible black lines seemed to encroach the infinite blankness.

To hold her in his arms again, to have her, his Calypso, the woman he loved, close to him again without seeing her in the awful, awful state that he had before -- it meant so much. As she asked if he was ready, he froze up, lightly trembling. He had gone through so much effort to try and push it all down so that he would never have to think about it ever again. But, as she put a hand on his opposing shoulder, he began to relax. He had put his trust into her -- even if he couldn't sense emotions as she could, he knew that she wouldn't lie to him.

Slowly breaking their embrace, he rubbed his arm as he gave a silent nod. His lip still quivered, he was still terrified of facing all of this again, and for someone else -- his love -- to see it with him. The other doors slowly faded away, leaving the open door in the pulsating white void. The door seemed to stretch and expand, growing in size as the white void slowly began to fade into black as Vanyel faded away.

A faint light slowly came into view, illuminating a small, dimly lit bedroom, with the floor being littered with books of Chinese mythology, mixed with religious and occult text. Vanyel, now much younger, sat on the bed, holding his knees close to his chest as he stared at some of the scattered texts on the floor, tears welled up in his eyes. Silver shackles adorned his wrists and ankles, decorated with crosses as he sat there, trying his hardest not to cry.

He immediately started to wipe his eyes as the sound of footsteps approached the room, trying his best to calm down, turning his head to the door as he heard the knob turn, and the bedroom door creak open. Two figures stepped in, possessing no facial features other than mouths, but as they went to speak, all that he could hear was muffled noise -- they were saying something, but he didn't want to hear it. He didn't want to repeat this moment, this event, what sparked such a hatred for what he had grown up with -- the event that took away one of the few things that gave him some semblance of happiness in his life.

Calypso nodded and smiled at Vanyel as the door consumed the white, pulsating void the two resided in, feeling his touch fade from her own, as the scene shifted to that of a bedroom, her gaze flickering around at all the articles of mythos and magic across the room. She was a bit dazzled, honestly - His interest in the occult and magics dated that far back. However, her sense of merriment faded as she looked to the bed, seeing the chained boy, to himself and full of misery. Her heart faltered, hand on her chest as she saw him.

"Van-"

She flinched when two vague figures came into the room, their mouths moving, though their words were distant and unintelligible. She knew rather quickly who these figures were supposed to be, and why this scene was so blotted. She turned to the child on the bed, walking over, hopping onto the sheets and holding him by the shoulders,

"Hey. Hey..."

She put a hand on his cheek, her expression light and gentle as she came eye to eye with him, "I understand, this is a painful memory for you Vanyel. It must hurt so much..."

She leaned in closer, gently pressing her forehead against his, the soft tones of her voice dropping to a whisper, "But you have to open your eyes and ears. We can't go on if you don't acknowledge what happened. Please, Vanyel, for your sake, hear them. It's painful, but i'll be here, by your side, I promise."

ENTER THE MEGALOMANIAC

Artist: BriChi - Song: White Silence

He kept his head turned away from the muffled version of his parents, reveling in the silence of his room, his head only lifting up as he felt Calypso's hands on his shoulders, turning his head to face her, shrinking away briefly as she went to touch his face, before sliding back toward her, his eyes wide with fear and uncertainty, trembling lightly as she touched his cheek.

As she leaned in close and pressed her head against his, he slowly closed his eyes, his lip quivering. Sniffling softly, the young human opened his eyes, nodding his head before wrapping his arms around her neck, hugging her tightly, before letting go and holding her hand. Closing his eyes again, the voices of his mother and father gradually became audible, finally being heard for a short time before the two went silent, and Vanyel's head lifted to look them in the eye.

"Mama, Papa...where's my friend?"

His father's brow furrowed, and his mother sighed, taking a step forward and kneeling down at the end of his bed, reaching out to him, only for Vanyel to suddenly scoot back, his eyes going wide again. His mother sighed again, lowering her arms as she got to her feet.

'He's gone. He won't be able to hurt you again. Demons have no place, neither here nor in this world.'

Vanyel's eyes went even wider, his hands trembling as tears welled up in his eyes.

"W-What did you do to him...?"

His father stepped past the doorframe, his mouth contorted into a frown that seemed to take up the entirety of his featureless face.

'Exorcised him, son.'

Vanyel's mouth dropped open as warm, wet tears slid down his cheeks, staring at his parents in abject horror. They...had killed him. His own parents had killed his only friend, the only person who seemed to understand his thoughts on everything, who even agreed with his line of thinking. The only person who genuinely seemed to care about him and his parents killed him, seemingly without a second thought.

"But...he didn't do anything wrong. They were my friend! He was nice to me!"

His father's frown turned to a scowl, and he reached to pull Vanyel's mother away from the bed, stepping back to the door.

'Reverend, you can come in now. You were right that he might have been possessed or influenced by it. You have my permission to perform the exorcism.'

Vanyel slowly started to back away, trying to process what his father had just said. He sounded so heartless and robotic as he said it -- like he didn't even care about the fact that he had just ended a life, even if they were a demon, he had still been a living being, and they just...ended his life without so much as a hint of remorse.

A tall man stepped in, someone Vanyel didn't recognize, wearing a black jacket and a matching black hat, holding a cross in one hand, and a Bible in the other.

'Don't be afraid, son. I'm not going to hurt you, I'm just getting rid of anything that demon might have done to you.'

Vanyel slid back more, his breathing growing more and more panicked as the man turned to his parents.

'You'll need to restrain him so that he doesn't hurt himself or someone else.'

His father gave a grim nod as he left the room, returning a few minutes later with a variety of different restraints in his arms. Unable to run out the door, Vanyel was forcibly tied down to his bed, his arms outstretched and his legs forced together, only able to move his head. The boy kicked and screamed as much as he could, but could do hardly anything against the strength and weight of multiple adults. Despite being tied down, Vanyel's head thrashed and jerked around to try and get himself free, but to no avail as tears welled up in his eyes.

"I'm not possessed! Leave me alone!"

The priest then began to recite a variety of prayers and scriptures, the words and voices beginning to echo through the room and beyond, as if repeating thousands of times over, again and again, as Vanyel continued to cry and thrash in place. The ritual proceeded for several hours, and as time went by, Vanyel began to wear himself out, his thrashing dying down to weak movements of his head as he lay there, crying.

"Leave me alone...please, someone, help me...I'm scared..."

Calypso stepped aside as Vanyel allowed the scene to happen as intended, dead silent as she knew what was likely the focus - That they killed his friend. Her heart sank as she watched, these people treating that child's very existence as if it were a plague to be destroyed. It made her feel a little sick - while her family and Shadow Fall weren't out for a good cause, at the very least they didn't see humans as a thing to be completely wiped out. For their violent ways, they were otherwise pretty accepting of others, a trait Calypso almost felt was an echo of a forgotten time, a time she wished to rebirth.

Her stomach felt as if it was filled with rocks as they referred to the child they murdered as an 'it', calling another man in to 'cleanse' the cowering boy of 'whatever that demon did to him'. Her gaze was cold as she watched the man advance. She couldn't do anything about this - It was a memory, a memory Vanyel needed to realize, and acknowledge, or else he'll never be able to prosper in life.

She covered her mouth when his father strapped him to the bed - He couldn't have been any older than 12 at this time, he was so small and young yet they were willing to subject him to this? On a what if? Her eyes teared up as she heard his pleas, watched his thrashing, his desire to be free so obvious and brazen. It felt like hours melted by extremely fast, the ritual obviously long and torturous on his young body.

With his final, weak plea, Calypso approached, and placed her hand on his stomach. She looked him in the eyes, a sorrowful look in her own as she would speak once more, her voice gentle and ethereal,

"It's okay to be scared. It's okay to feel wronged. You had horrible people in your life during a time when you needed good ones. The world isn't forgiving, we don't get to choose who we're born to, but.."

Her hand snaked down to one of his own, grasping it, "We can't let that define us. I'm so, so sorry your friend had to be killed, i'm so sorry they hurt you like this, but you can't stay stuck back here. You aren't that scared, hurt child anymore. You're more than that now. And you can be so much more than you already are.. You just.. Have to take the first step, and free yourself."

She smiled softly, and sweetly at him, "Come on Vanyel, I know you can do it - You're strong enough now. Break the chains, free yourself of this torment. Don't think you're trapped as a vulnerable little child, you can move past this. Don't let it stop you."

ENTER THE MEGALOMANIAC

Artist: BriCie - Song: White Silence

Hearing Calypso's ethereal voice break through the ritualistic chanting sent a small wave of relief down his spine, his hand briefly twitched, though quickly accepted her hand in his, and he took in a deep, shaky breath as she reassured him, telling him that it was okay to feel scared and feel wronged. The boy's lip quivered as he turned his head to try and look at her, to try and keep himself distracted from the chanting.

He knew the world wasn't forgiving, but he gave a slow, quiet nod as he blinked away more tears. This was...just the past. His parents couldn't control him anymore -- they weren't there to control him. His thoughts went to his brothers in the Yakuza -- they had always expected more of him when he was welcomed into the family, and so he became more. Squeezing his eyes shut, Vanyel tried his best to block out the priest's chanting. He was stronger since then, his parents did nothing but hold him back now. They were just...another obstacle to overcome.

He wasn't the scared, hurt child that he was back then. He wasn't the kid that blindly and mindlessly obeyed every single one of his parent's instructions out of fear. He was stronger than that now. Despite how real this memory felt and how much it hurt to relive it and hear everything all over again -- if Caly believed that he was strong enough, he had to at least try. As long as she was by his side, there to help him and be with him, part of him felt that there was nothing he couldn't do for the sake of protecting her, and doing his best to love her.

So, opening his eyes to look at Calypso for a moment, squeezing her hand tightly before closing his eyes again. He started to pull at his restraints, his breathing shaky. He could break free -- he knew he could. He continued to pull and tug, feeling the weight of them lessen. This moment wouldn't hold him back anymore. It was painful to remember the loss of his friend, how harsh and cold his parents had been to his friend and Vanyel himself, but he had to stop running away from it and letting it hold him back.

Pulling again and again, with each attempt, they felt lighter and lighter. Finally, pulling one last time, the restrains snapped, and Vanyel quickly sat up, his breathing spiking in pace as he looked at his wrists and ankles. He was free. Ever so slowly, Vanyel slowly slid his legs over the side of the bed, taking another look at his wrists, seeing the shackles shimmering to life on his wrists, before snapping open and falling, slowly fading out of existence before they even hit the floor, Vanyel fading away soon after.

A voice echoed from the room, young, yet filled with authority.

'Come, join me. Someone like you shouldn't be left to rot in the gutter. Do you have a name, kid?'

'...Vanyel. Vanyel...Xioyang.'

A steel door manifested in front of Calypso, slowly creaking open as a warm, gentle light broke through the darkness. Should Calypso walk through the door, she would find herself in a medium-sized, Japanese bar, though the infrastructure did not feel like it was a building in Japan -- more, as if it were one room in a series of others. The shelves were barren as if they hadn't been restocked in years, and the lights were dim. Old tattoo needles and equipment were stowed away in the corner, covered in dust. The same voice from before echoed from the room once again.

'Say hello to our newest shatei, everyone. Welcome to the family, Vanyel.'

A slightly younger Vanyel materialized, the ends of his hair had turned a light grey in contrast to his dyed, snowy hair. His arms rested on the bar, his head low as he stared at the dark wood. Another voice, slightly deeper from the one before yelled out.

'How did you mess up that badly?! You're yakuza, Vanyel, not some petty criminal!'

Vanyel winced, gripping the small glass in front of him tightly.

'What are we going to do now?! We weren't prepared to select a new leader, despite his wishes!'

Vanyel gripped the glass tighter, lowering his head further as he mumbled to himself.

"It's my fault..."

The moment he said that, countless male voices shouted from all around him, the words blurring together, to a point where it was hard to even discern what was being said. The words "prison," "disband," and "lay low," were being said time and time again, and Vanyel let go of the glass to cover his ears.

"Stop...I didn't mean to..."

She gave him a silent look of reassurance, her hands gently wrapped around his own, as if aiding him in strength to break his chains. Her movements were slow, gentle, and guiding as he strained and struggled against these suffocating restraints. She closed her eyes, gently letting her faith and belief in the man she loved flourish and grow, until finally she heard the snap of chains, one by one, until he was finally freed of them.

She watched as his shackles snapped off his wrists and ankles, a gentle nod by her as she watched the younger boy vanish, the scene around her changing. She knew it was far from over - the man's wounds ran deep, infested with all manner of infection from lack of attention or care. She had intent, a grand intent to cleanse his wounds so that his healing may properly begin, and no longer feel burned and ached by the poisons the past instilled in him. He was scared, hurt, but she wished for him to rise above and become more than that - To become his truest, best self.

Scenes flickered by her silver eyes - She knew this was his referring to his 'criminal' years, in the Yakuza. She watched the young man go about, watching his happiness within camaraderie, and soon his sadness and despair from such separations.

She walked forth as he was wrapped within dark feelings, watching his shutting off from the scene by covering his ears, the lack of clarity made all more apparent as he did so. As Calypso stepped into the light, her form changed to that of a dragon, slightly taller than Vanyel as she approached, moving her shadowy head to press against his cheek.

"It isn't your fault."

A gentle timbre to her tone could be heard, as she spoke with delicacy and softness, as she knew this was a vulnerable moment for him.

"..Vanyel, all you've ever wanted was a family to love and depend on. They were the only ones willing to accept you at the time. None of us can survive without a group to make us feel safe and loved. You did what you had to, to survive."

She nuzzled the side of his head, her white eyes half closed with a gentle expression,

"You don't have to run anymore Vanyel.. We can make a new family, a strong one, with unconditional love, together."

She sighed shakily, before continuing, "..I want to make a kingdom, that's like a family to each other.. and maybe even... Maybe we... Could.. Have children.."

ENTER THE MEGALOMANIAC

Artist: Elsword - Song: Somber Black

Words could not explain how wrong that one day had gone for Vanyel back then. They were set up, and now, since they needed a scapegoat, the blame rested on his shoulders -- though, he had long since accepted that it had been his fault to begin with. If he never joined the yakuza -- no, if he had never existed -- this would have never happened. Vanyel continued to stare at the shot glass, the ice cubes gently tapping against one another as they melted and moved.

His lip quivered for a moment, before he quickly brought the glass to his lips, swallowing the small bit of alcohol before slamming the glass down with a thud, though it didn't shatter. As he softened his grip on the glass, he let out a quiet gasp as he felt Calypso's draconic head press against his cheek. He felt some comfort, but it quickly faded as she tried to tell him that it wasn't his fault.

"It was my fault...we-- I got careless, and I got the Family Heads arrested, then...the whole clan fell apart at the seams."

The words echoed briefly around the room, causing the voices from before to start up again, becoming louder and louder, trying to drown Calypso out. Vanyel's eyes closed and squeezed tightly shut as he tried to shut them out, to stop thinking about back then and just keep it all buried away. He could still hear her, but he only heard parts of what she said.

He wanted to run.

He wanted to get away from it all, to flee and get far away from all of this anxiety, this pain, this sorrow -- the people that took him in, the family that he desperately wanted, only for it all to come crumbling down. He felt her face against his cheek, and his lip continued to quiver. He tried his hardest to focus on her, managing to hear her continue, but she still sounded so far away. He wanted to hear her, trying to will her voice to shine and break through the endless stormy chaos of voices condemning him.

And then, the storm finally cleared. The voices slowly receded into the background, turning into a garbled haze. Caly's gentle voice felt like music as she continued, her voice still quiet, but he could hear her clearly.

"You don't have to run away anymore, Vanyel..."

Another quiet gasp came from him as she spoke. Tears started to pool in his eyes as he started to shrink up, pulling his body close to itself as he gripped the glass harshly, his knuckles turning white. He shook his head, his arms pulling themselves closer to his body. An audible growl rumbled in the man's throat as he suddenly stood up and hurled the glass against the wall, watching it shatter and fall to the floor before he slumped back into the chair, burying his face into his arms as he wiped his eyes on his sleeves.

'I could never be a father...I couldn't even be a leader for my brothers, how could I ever be something like that?'

She watched as he ran, his frantic footsteps pattering and pattering, the demon following right behind him at a calm, relaxed pace. Despite his running and her walking, she managed to catch up to him almost so easily, a calm aura full of ease and kindness rolling off her beastly form, not even flinching when he threw the glass at the wall. She stepped through the veil his mind tried to create, soon nudging his back with her head, wrapping her tail around his body, overall trying to bring the younger man closer to her as he shook and shivered with worry and anxiety, denying her words as he devolved into a crying mess.

The tip of her tail wiped at his tear-stained cheek, her animal-like head lowering, multiple white eyes looking him sideways, as her voice could be heard within the space they occupied,

"Was that what you wanted? Was that what you wished for?"

Her snout rested against his temple, a comforting gesture as she went on, "You seem so fixated on what others see you as, and what others want out of you.. So much you haven't considered it for yourself."

A clawed hand rose to trace his jaw, before stopping at the chin, tipping his head up to look at her form,

"What do you want, Vanyel? What is it that you want to do, to say, to have? Stop thinking about what others are saying to you, what others are imposing upon you, and think, what do you want?"
