The following people have permission to post here: Myself, any other WPL, the players on this quest (defined below), and anyone else that I give permission to.
Anyone who posts in here who doesn’t have permission will be disparaged, disrespected, discombobulated, disarmed, disenfranchised, discredited, diseased, disfigured, disemboweled, dismembered, dissolved, and defenestrated. And if I’m in a bad mood, it’ll be in that order. Whatever remains will be given to Lou to do with as he pleases.
Lou motions to the entrance to the sewer, motioning to Cyouni to head down first.
Cyouni follows Lou closely. After being called to Ravnica, he's not going to miss the chance to find out what it's about. Plus, it'd be a bad idea to get lost in the sewers.
Needing light, he reaches into his satchel and pulls out a gem. It expands into a metal hilt capped with a snarling head. The head almost seems to breathe fire as a blade of fire ignites, bringing a modicum of light to their surroundings.
"A few thousand years ago, there was a disaster on my home plane. It got ripped apart. I got caught in the middle. I was flung through the multiverse, and landed on this... pathetic plane." He lets out a growl. "I was a demon lord on my home plane. Here? I was just a pathetic demonic upstart. I had to start from scratch. And I did. I fought my way up. I ruled half the continent before they mustered up a force to defeat me. They summoned five angels to fight me. From across the whole of time, they came, and attacked." He laughed. "I did manage to kill one before they stopped me. They couldn't kill me, however. I had found how to select people that I could transfer my essence into. You can call them my 'phylacteries,' if you will." He smiled at Cyouni. "I guess you figured that out."
"Oh, that's the easy bit," he says, grinning. Of course, without lips, it's hard to tell whether or not he's grinning. "The tricky bit is making sure you're not consumed by all the mana you've been storing."
Cyouni takes the blade in his right hand again and proceeds to follow Lou. Finally, some of the mysteries are going to be cleared up. And maybe he can figure out a way to remove the bond between him and Lou while he's at it.
