A Gentleman's Drink


Quest Details:
 

The fruity scent from surrounding grape plantations was often carried abreast the winds that immersed the island of Lvneel into this particular district. Vana, wine as her maiden trade, attracted all kinds of personages to her bosom. Noblemen, musicians, swindlers and more, all were attracted to the charm she provided, and everyone did their best to own at least even a piece of her.

However, her heart belonged to the Bolden's. The Family of the Vassal Lord who ruled Vana. Their knights didn't wear armour strictly for protection or servitude to the veil, it was a fashion statement. A declaration of the wealthy and strong, brutes who had a taste for fine wines and women. Baggy underpants, light chainmail, and smaller crafts populated the Knight's Guard. Each of their chest pieces bore the Vana's District's symbol and the Crown's one on it's back.

There's a common saying that's been grandfathered into the legacy of this area - 'No favor goes uncompensated.' In fact, Bastion's prescience in Vana was a favor, a promise from Waldon to Bolden. Who better to send than his newest plaything? The Knight who'd become the newest murmur among drunk officials, the so-called hero of the people. A masked knight who hid his face purely out of chivalry, rumours were nasty little things, nothing could be farther from the truth.

Nonetheless, Bastion had arrived by noon, and within two hours, after all the official pleasantries had passed, the wine started to flow at Sir Blitz private estate in uptown Vana. Constructed with round arches and massive pillars at its foundation, the broad two story estate spanned across six thousand square feet of land. Meek for a knight in the court's grace, but such was the nature of Sir Austin Blitz, first of his name and cornerstone of his house's future.

He was constantly concerned about his public image, asking to personally chauffer around the masked hero. It'd look good to his admirers, even more so in Lord Bolden Senior's favor.

"What shameless men we serve."Blitz blurted out, slurring his syllables due to the wine's influence. Light weights who love to drink extravagant alcoholic portions, who doesn't adore them? Outside on his estate's patio, overlooking the quiet exclusive culdesac, Castor laid sideways in silence, propping upward to face the drunkard.

Listening to the man's woes, Castor had learned that the Knight's in this Kingdom tend to get loose lipped when under the influence but this proclamation was different. Much like his own persona, Austin was playing a role, whether it be the lightweight or disgruntled subject was unbeknownst to him.

Adjusting his face golden face mask, he'd lift the compartment allotted for consumption, gingerly emptying his glass.

"Depends on who you ask. In my short time in this Kingdom, the Lord's have been nothing but kind. However your words point elsewhere. What's so shameless about them?"Castor inquired smirking."Everything but nothing at all."Austin said in an ominous manner, smiling merrily. Averting from the baited words,"What say you of the disappearances?" Austin continued.

Sitting up, centering his weight in the middle of the hammock, "Strange indeed. No specific demographic or age. Since no remains are turning up, I'd assume all the victims are dead." Castor stated sternly. Chuckling, "Very cold of you. Victims. Is this the Knight rumored to be a beloved of the masses?"Blitz retorted. "Love is a fickle thing Sir Blitz. Often, it's the ones we love who receive our coldest pleas."Castor stated. Clapping his hands, summoning his servants to refill his glass, "Well said. I grow bored of male company. I shall retreat to my chambers until tomorrow. We'll begin our investigations on Ryker's Street. It's where majority of the disappearances occurred."Austin concluded, hopping up from his position in the mahogany rocking chair.

Two beautiful women arrived as he stood, interlocking their arms into his own. "My estate is full of pleasures. Have your fill. Unlike your Lord... I like my women of a certain age. I assume you follow suit."Austin said snidely, a jest at Sir Waldon's taste in young children. Scanning the room, Castor would wait until Sir Blitz was just about passed his position, making sure he was within close range for his next statement.

"Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make... Let's take, for strawberry shortcake if even the tiniest mistake can yourself in terrible trouble.

Besides... No 'woman' here is much older than those that Mi Lord entertains from my gander. I'd assume his taste is just as ripe as yours. A ripe fruit is truly no older really in three minutes than it was prior. Nonetheless, the heart yearns for what it wants."
Castor concluded, proceeding to drink the wine the servants refilled in his glass.

Storming off in frustration at the man's implication, thus ended Castor's first day in Vana.

Word of his 'horrible' deeds had not reached into the Blues, let alone to the Kingdom of Lyneel. A very fortunate turn of events indeed, as it allowed Victor to set up shop without much notice or problems. Really, this whole thing had been almost too easy for the scientist. He had taken up the profession of the local doctor, a way to bring in Beli while he funded his experiments. He found painting a nice picture of himself helped dissuade people from peering too closely.

That, and a knack for soundproofing a room and a skill for disposing of dead bodies.

While he didn't have access to criminals and pirates anymore, a loss that made things a little bit more difficult for him, he was still able to collect enough subjects. It just took a more active and tactile approach. Pick those whose disappearance wouldn't draw too much attention. Wait between subjects. And make sure the body was thoroughly dissolved and disposed of. But even with these precautions, people had begun to take notice of the disappearances. Perhaps Victor should take a brief break, give things time to cool down before resuming.

He looked down at the young man who was his latest test subject, as he finally fell silent. A drunk he had managed to pick up a couple of days ago. Ever since the experiment began, the man had been screaming non-stop. It would have been annoying if Victor wasn't used to it by now. He had been testing another of his chemical concoctions, and the results were clearly showing. Dark veins were visible beneath his pale skin, and now the youth was laying limp, his eyes rolled back into his head. A quick touch to the neck confirmed what Victor had suspected. Death, again. Victor let out a small sigh. Just the same as the other subjects.

There were so many questions. Was it the mixture of the chemicals? Was it the young man's constitution? He was a drunk after all, so any alcohol that had been in his system, or damage to his liver, could have had a hand in it. There were so many variables, so many reasons for Victor to explore. The man scientist gave a small shrug. Well, you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, though in this case, it was like breaking the whole hen house.

He went over to his tools, picking up a scalpel. Well, time to perform the autopsy.

A Gentleman's Drink


Thrusting his frustrations into rotations of his hips, Sir Blitz took his exchange with Castor poorly, to say the least. Switching from servant to servant, the man used pleasure as his ego booster. Every ejaculation brought him closer to the clarity he needed to be his usual cheerful and witty self. A side of him that disappeared in situations where embarrassment reared itself, hindering his usual performance. The morning time came, his usual routine of being pampered commenced. From his hair down to his toenails, the servant girls washed and trimmed every inch of his body, while the male squires assembled his armour.

Castor followed suit in a less high-maintenance manner, banning the servants from his chambers. The man couldn't afford to have his identity revealed. Hiding a body on the estate wouldn't be too difficult really, but the blood, that was always the deal breaker in killing others in residential or public areas. After both men's rituals had been completed, they were escorted towards the kitchen for breakfast.

Eating Dax's food had spoiled his taste bugs, as the man radiantly bragged about his chef, Castor couldn't help drawing the comparison to his crew's own potty mouth cook. Most of the breakfast items were bland and didn't have much pizzazz to them. However, every bite was filled with excitement for Blitz, further continuing to butter up the Head Chef of his estate. Finishing his meal in the least amount of bites possible, the duo commenced their first day on the job.

Vana | Ryker's Street

Travelling south downtown, sitting in the carriage, Castor would peer through the shone glass, examining the exquisite taste in clothing the locals seemed to favour. It was all strange to him, having lived in Lvneel for most of his childhood. It'd be as if he'd visited an entirely different island in contrast to the Capital's culture. Smiling faces, even the more rural areas were vibrant and filled with hawkers. In comparison to Jotun, this place seemed to be a paradise booming from both an economic and social standpoint. Yet, citizens were going missing in broad daylight, at obscure hours of the day?

"One thing I noticed. The streets... They aren't patrolled as heavily as would be in the other districts. Why is that?"Castor inquired.

Chomping at the chance to mouth off,"That's because of our very strict laws. All crimes are governed with similar consequences. As ruled by Sir Bolden Elder, theft, murder, adultery or assault, the only punishment is execution. Here in Vana, stealing an apple is the same as murdering a Knight."Blitz declared grinning, flicking his long flowing locks out of his face. The information was alarming to him, to be executed for theft, and this was happening on an island under the World Government's banner?

Castor couldn't help but to chuckle to himself. The idea was absolutely ludicrous. If Blitz could see the actual expression on his face, the confident smirk he currently boasted would fade.

"Of course. We have an alternative. Working on the Wine Plantations. Repay your debt to society by helping our major export industry." Blitz added.

"Stop the carriage." Castor declared. Bringing the horse driven ride to an abrupt halt. The sudden jerk caused Sir Austin to fall from his seat onto the floor, the sound of the man's longsword clanking against the ground, caused him to peer upwards to Castor annoyed.

"What-" the Knight declared, ready for an argument or even a scuffle to break out.

Hopping out from the carriage onto the busy street, "Why all the animosity? How are we going to investigate from the comforts of luxury? Let's hit the streets, Sir Blitz of House Vana." Castor declared smugly.

Well, the autopsy had given him no answers. It really had been the same as the previous subjects. The chemicals had effectively poisoned his blood stream, causing some of his organs, particularly his digestive tract, to start rotting, resulting in a rather painful end for the poor man. Perhaps he should rework the chemical mixture. After all, it was supposed to strengthen the individual's body. Not rot it from the inside out. Still, it was curious why it only affected the digestive system. The other organs seemed relatively intact. Especially the lungs, if the constant screaming was any indication.

After the autopsy, Victor had done what he normally did. Dismembered the body and was now letting it dissolve in some acid. He would leave it there for a while, wait until it was degraded to such a degree that he could dispose of the remains safely. In the meantime, Victor decided to go for a stroll. Some fresh air did the body good after all. Plus, the fumes could get a bit annoying after a while.

As he walked down the street, Victor was someone that, well, stood out. After all, with his curious clothing, he certainly stuck out amongst the population of Lyneel. That being said, being a doctor in this providence at least allowed people to recognize him as someone who helped them. They were completely unaware of what he was doing underneath his clinic. All the lives he had taken in the name of his research. As far as they were concerned, he was a strange, but effective, doctor who helped them. Still, Victor didn't pay too much mind to the stares he got. He had gotten used to it all relatively quickly.

As he walked down the street, his eyes caught sight of a gilded carriage. The sort used by nobility in these parts. He watched as two individuals stepped out of it. He had been here long enough to recognize them as knights of Lyneel. What were a pair of knights doing here? Were they possibly looking into the disappearances that had been occurring. This could certainly be problematic. He should perhaps keep his distance from them. He started to walk to the opposite side of the street, keeping as casual as possible.

Doctor! Doctor!


The commotion caused from the carriage being in these parts drew the attention of the average man. Castor cloaked in his full gold armour set, with his nodachi and spear wrapped diagonally along his back in a brown cloth concealed.The five footer looked like a child in comparison to Sir Blitz, who was six feet and then some, and everything about his attire screamed noble.House crested chainmail, long white baggy pants with plaited streaks, padded hard leather boots and a red feathered cavalier, made with black material. The street was quite busy upon their arrival, the women and young girls swooned over the two knights.

One half divided in the mystery of what face lied below the Masked Knight's veil and the other captivated with Blit's princely good looks.Castor was accustomed to crowds, though usually they'd be running for their life, spit choked in their windpipe, concentrating on nasal breaths, all geared towards escaping the Three Eye's rage. However, on this street, another spectacle came into focus far off from the crowd, a massive seven footer who'd outclassed both knights in size and height.

Castor couldn't help but gawk at the monster of a man, though Blitz was preoccupied with the ladies.Aside from the murmurs in his immediate vicinity, those from afar began to register on his electro radio. A doctor? A new one in the area at that? This sea was truly filled with all kinds; a man of his size could have easily opted to be a knight or at least security. There wasn't really any menacing energy or anything peculiar that stood out about the monstrous doctor but Castor's curiosity to see him in action forced him to create a spectacle of his own.

Stroking his hand along a maiden's face lovingly, Castor caused the woman to wince in pleasure from receiving the affection she'd craved from a man in his position. The touch had much more than love intended, with one swift shock, he'd disburse enough electricity to cause the woman to faint. As her body dropped towards the ground, Castor immediately assumed his script.

"Miss! Miss! Stay with me!Someone get a doctor! Anyone! She needs assistance immediately!"Castor exclaimed urgently, smiling behind his golden face mask. Among the members along the street, many of the citizens began to gawk at the new resident doctor to spring into action. The seeds had been planted, pure curiosity in watching the man at work motivated the knight's actions. It'd happen so fast that noone's eyes could pin him as the true culprit behind her fainting spell, they'd sooner blame it on an unknown illness or the beating midday sun.

He wasn't sure if fate was conspiring against him, or if he just had terrible luck. He had hoped to avoid contact with the knights, especially if they were investigating the disappearances that had been occurring as of late. But, that didn't seem to be a case as a woman within the crowd seemed to collapse. And, judging by the knight's reaction, it wasn't her simply swooning over the knight's charms as well. With him calling for a doctor, eyes were starting to turn to the tall man nearby, expecting him to help.

Victor let out a small sigh. Guess he had to get to work.

He turned and quickly made a run towards the group. He cleared the distance in no time, due to his long stride. The crowd parted, allowing him to reach the fallen woman relatively quickly. "Step back," he instructed, glancing at the golden knight before looking back to the unconscious woman, "Give her some room." Allowing her to breath was important, as he inspected her.

As he looked over her, he started piecing things together quickly. She still had a pulse and was breathing, but her muscles were spasming, and her pulse was racing. He could feel her twitching as he looked over her, and then noticed a the red blemish on her cheek. A brief touched showed that it was hot. Not to the point of causing a burn, but certainly close enough.

This caused Victor to pause briefly. These...seemed to be the symptoms of an electric shock. But how had this woman been shocked? There wasn't a source of electricity around here. He glanced around, curious for a moment before reaching into his coat. He pulled out a syringe, a muscle relaxant. Normally he used it when taking his subjects, but it worked in this case as well. "This will take care of the spasms and ease her heart a little," he murmured, injecting the chemicals into her system. It wouldn't be long before her twitching started to subside.

"We need to get her to my clinic, so I can monitor her condition." he said, glancing at anyone who could help him carry the unconscious woman.

Doctor! Doctor!

The Masked Knight observed intently as the massive doctor sprung into action. Clearing a path with two words, the bizarre medic began to treat the woman's condition. His assessment was accurate, Castor had indeed electrocuted the woman for his own amusement. Reaching into his jacket, the man revealed a syringe filled with an unknown concoction that he referred to as a muscle relaxant. Leaning in to examine the situation more accurately, the man's needle work was clean and efficient, finding her vein within seconds as he administered the injection. Drawing closer to the doctor, Castor's nose picked up on a scent he knew all too well.

While the man's height was cut due to administering medical care, Castor leaned in whispering in the man's ear. "You smell of fresh blood." Continuing his motion forward, the imp knight would toss the petite woman over his shoulders, non-verbally complying with the doctor's request. Finally paying attention to the task at hand, "What about our investigation?! We don't have time to be saving every woman that faints in the street!"Sir Blitz declared."It's ruined now. Any kidnapper who was wondering about our presence here... You just blew our cover."Castor retorted, wobbling from side to side momentarily before regaining balance, the woman was heavier than she looked.

About to follow the doctor back to his examination room, a loud high pitch screech echoed, coming from the adjacent street. "Meet back up at the Scarlet Rose! I'll check out where that's coming from!"Blitz shouted, automatically dashing off towards the supposed damsel's cry. Turning towards the doctor once more, "Shall we?"Castor inquired. Frustrated from his interactions with Bastion, Blitz used this opportunity to redeem himself by probably solving what he'd thought to be a petty crime. However, once he'd arrive to the scene, yet another victim had been abducted in broad daylight.

Victor's ears perked up when he heard the knight whisper to him. So, he was more perceptive than he had expected. There was a lot more to this knight than he was letting on. Still, it would take a lot more to make Victor lose his cool than a comment like that. He stood up straight, looking at the knight as he hefted the woman over his shoulder. "I'm a doctor," he replied in a low voice so the knight could hear, "We have a tendency to get bloody."

It was at that point they heard a scream coming from nearby. Was someone in danger? Victor looked over as the second knight took off running. Well, they had been investigating disappearances, and it seemed somebody was causing trouble of their own. Wasn't Victor the fortunate one. Now he had someone to pin the disappearances on. He just hoped that the knights didn't capture them too quickly. But, in the meantime, let's get out of here. "This way," he said to the golden masked knight, leading them down the road.

Victor's clinic wasn't too far away. It was a relatively simple place. Clinic in the front, living areas in the back. It looked like a clinic any town doctor would have. And that was what Victor wanted. His true lab was hidden underneath the building, via a hidden trapdoor. Right now it was safely locked, so now he could focus on this woman and her knights."Set her down on the bed," Victor instructed.

Doctor! Doctor!


The scene of the kidnapping wasn't as crazed as the victims cry, actually, it was oddly normal. No one batted an eye at the woman who'd been seemingly whisked away into the alleyway, had she not scream, no one would have been the wiser. That was the twisted culture of Ryder Street and all the surrounding areas of downtown Vana. Snitches didn't last too long and even if they did, the only way to ensure survival was fleeing Lvneel. Blitz went from citizen to citizen, trying to get a solid report of what had happen but chillingly, he had been met with the most blank expressions from everyone questioned.

"Tch. This is why I hate these parts... I hate being among these peasants." Bltiz thought to himself but his facial expression showed his annoyance.

"Ah. I can tell you what happened to the young lady."
A voice called out from a distance.

Shuffling through the busy street, the Knight brought himself in front of a quaint little wine stall with a wooden sign reading - 'Richie's Wines and Liqueurs'. "The lady who just screamed out... She was dragged into that alley over yonder."Richie declared, previously introducing himself in a short exchange. Skeptical of the man's report,"Everyone here says they saw nothing... Yet you are so willing to give a report... Why is that?" Blitz reported."Aye. In this area, not many people, are willing to yak to your kind. Less stress ya' know. Me, I'm more interested in rewards. If she's found, just remember good' ol' Richie Rich."Richie declared, grinning broadly.

The man's mouth was filled with cavities, blacken stubs degraded by what appeared to be a tobacco habit and alcoholism. Blitz jerked back slightly at the sight, the contrast between the well-dressed salesman and his dental care was night and day. Resting his arm across his chest diagonally, bowing towards the knight, the salesman upped once again, wrapping his hands against the wooden handle to his cart. It was a wagon, makeshift with carpenter work as a counter front. Making it easy to traverse various streets, giving him optimal coverage for sales.

Blitz knew it'd be too late to garner any evidence from the alley at this stage. Heckling at the vintner, "If you see anything else, come pay me a visit tomorrow at the Scarlet Rose. You'll be rewarded handsomely for whatever you can find."Looking over his shoulder and grinning, Richie would wave at the Knight in approval. Pushing his cart down the stretch, his wine barrels shaking along the bumps in the road, the man began to sing a merry tune.

"Do you know... The Liquors Man? The Liquors Man... The Liquors Man... Do you know... The Liquors Man? Who lives on Vana's Ways." Richie sang out loud, shinning his molars to those who walked next to him on the street. Each of them taken aback at the poor state of his teeth each time. On the cart, one of his barrels shook violently, this time, it wasn't from being pushed along the streets humps and grumps.It was the barrel closest to him, and with one swift motion, he'd slap his hand atop the barrels cover.

"Silence." Richie said aggressively. Without halting his pace, the man continued to push the cart humming his spirited tune. "I want to be just like you... Doctor." Richie whispered to himself grinning.




Following the massive doctor alone was a spectacle in itself. Every route he'd walk would avoid major roads, leading him eventually to the very plain, very quaint clinic. Castor had gotten his hopes up for nothing it seemed, it would be common for medics to be exposed to copious amounts of blood. As the man leaned to walk under the clinics doorway, the imp fit through in one go obviously.Resting the lady onto the bed, Castor would make sure to place her down slowly, ensuring no further harm would come to her person.

Walking around the clinic, Castor would begin to examine its contents. The shelves filled with medical books, the medical charts on the wall, and the various mannequins displaying aspects of the human anatomy.

"How long have you been working in this town Doc?" Castor inquired, calmly browsing. "I actually grew up here along time ago. Though I haven't been to Vana until yesterday, I returned to Lvneel recently for some unfinished business."Castor declared.Ending his examination where the Doctor was, Castor would smile beneath his golden mask, awaiting the strangers response. "My name is Bastion. Sorry for rambling, and you are?"Castor inquired.

The night didn't speak up about anything in his clinic, nor did he seem eager to search the place. That was good. This man was definitely someone to be wary of. He hadn't accused him outright, but he seemed like the kind of person who wanted to be sure of something before acting. Or perhaps he simply didn't care so much about such things. He had heard the knights could be a bit, well, careless, when it came to the people here. It's what made his work much easier. He would almost feel bad for his subjects, if he didn't know that their sacrifices were for the greater good. It was an honour, really.

The knight then introduced himself as Bastion. A typical name for this region. "I am Victor Abio," Victor introduced himself, putting on his best attempt at a polite smile. Victor just normally looked sinister, but that didn't mean the doctor couldn't be an absolute charmer if he wished to be, "I'm afraid I'm a foreigner to these parts. Came down from the Grand Line some time ago. Fortunately, there's a high demand for a good doctor around here." Indeed it had been a good fortune he was able to set up here. Sure, he stood out, but when someone can help you heal from grave injuries, you quickly learned to deal with that sort of thing.

Now, onto the subject of the unconscious woman here. She had been given an electrical shock, and with the golden knight here seemed like the most likely culprit. Well, they weren't going to get anywhere if they danced around the issues. "So tell me, do you make it a habit to shock women like this?" He raised an eyebrow curiously. If he did indeed shock her, the question was why? He seemed to care about her safety, but if he was responsible, it was all an act.

Doctor! Doctor!


Castor's smile expanded below his mask,"Some women say I have that affect on them. It's the mystique.If they knew what my face truly looked like..."Castor said, motioning his index finger in a gun like fashion towards the sleeping damsel."I guess it'd have the same effect."Castor continued, chuckling to himself."To answer your question...Yeah. I am responsible for her loss of consciousness. As to how or why, I'm not sure I fully trust you yet to give a full answer Vic but I will say this... I wanted to see how the doctor who is the talk of the town responded under pressure."Castor concluded.

In an instant, a bolt of electricity soared from the man's index finger towards the sleeping woman. The charge set the bed ablaze, eviscerating the bystander's body. The lingering scent of torched flesh filled the room, as the fire burned steadily. "We'll be in touch Victor. I'll say this much. I'm intrigued by you and now we share a little secret. The best way to start a friendship is to commit a crime together. Tonight around midnight, I'll be looking for the kidnapper. The victims might be injured, so a doctor would be necessary. I'd like to have you present. That is of course, if you're not too busy. "Castor said, walking towards the entrance of the small clinic's door."Oh. I'd rush to put out that fire... Flames tend to spread pretty quickly in small enclosed areas.Fires unearth truths... Who knows what they'd find with a proper look around. The meetup location is called the Scarlet Rose!"Castor exclaimed, exiting the clinic.

As plumes of smoke funneled out the window, it wasn't enough at the moment to draw the attention of neighbours. Though it'd be strange that smoke would come from his clinic and not the living quarters kitchen in the back, as empty as the street was at this time, no one would pay it much mind. After awhile, once the coast was clear, Castor would enter into his lightning state, jolting along the concrete, and eventually stone houses towards the nearest roof top.

"Now to find this Scarlet Rose. Wonder if they serve decent food?"
Castor thought to himself, dashing from rooftop to rooftop, looking out for any signs that advertised his desired location.

Well, Victor would give him this. The man was certainly honest. He didn't even try to hide why he had done it. He had done it specifically to force the doctor into action. Victor quirked an eyebrow. Well, quite an interesting reasoning, but what had he done to earn the knight's attention. Something told him it had something to do with the disappearances.

A thing that was all the more confirmed when the knight suddenly shot a bolt of lightening at the unconscious woman, killing her and igniting the bed that she was laying on. Victor jumped back, more in surprise than anything. The knight had lightening powers! A Devil Fruit perhaps? There was so much more to this man than met the eye. He had heard that knights could be corrupt, but to this extent? That is, if the man was a knight. The way he spoke, not at all caring that he had just committed a murder like that, told Victor a totally different story.

And with all this going on, he was effectively being recruited to help with these disappearances. The sheer insanity of all this intrigued him. As the knight left, Victor turned his head to the burning bed. It wouldn't be long before the fire started to spread. He would need to put it out quickly to avoid causing a scene.

Than again, Bastion seemed to know what he was doing anyway. Well, time to take the opportunity to destroy the evidence. Fortunately he had some flamable liquids in the lab under the building to help speed things along. He had to be quick though. If he was going to let the place burn down, he wanted it to burn quickly, before anyone could stop it.

Some time, and many chemicals thrown around later, the clinic was in full blaze. If people hadn't noticed the smoke, they would notice the fire now. It was almost at risk of reaching over to the neighboring buildings. and all the while, Victor was putting as much distance between the destroyed clinic and himself as possible.

Now, where had he said to meet? The Scarlet Rose?

The Scarlet Rose


Boss Details:
 

Dashing from rooftop to rooftop, finally, the painted billboard sign came into view. Art depicting a scarlet rose with its petals falling off lied atop the board's wooden surface. Attached on top of a building that was two stories in height, carrying the look of a small motel. Landing into a nearby alleyway, the Masked Knight regained his form. It'd be about two in the afternoon at this point, and as he crossed the street towards the building, two ladies of different race approached him.

The first was a rabbit mink and the second was a Long Armed Tribesman woman, both interlocking their hands around the knight. Hospitable greetings awaited him from the time his feet stepped through the doors, as a selection of woman, more skimpily dressed assembled. All draped in nude material robes, the ladies of the Scarlet Rose inquired on the Knight's 'taste'.

"I'm just meeting a friend. A fellow knight. Any of you happen to know where he'd be." Castor inquired

The man's statement was met with cold responses from the girls, and as they disbursed, two large macho guards, dressed in black suits appeared from the doors on opposite sides of the room.

"This ain't the place for loitering bub. If you're not buying, then scram."the first 7fter stated, clutching at the longsword at his waist.

"Our clients privacy is A1 at the Scarlet Rose. No one left any messages saying additions to their party would be arriving. Knight or not, our establishment pays quite a bit of taxes to Vana's Lord. Meaning, this is a legal gig."the second 7fter added, resting his battle axe on his shoulder.

"I don't have time for this." Castor exclaimed sighing. Activating his Conqueror's Haki, the man silenced the two guards to a deep slumber. The weight of their opal shaped bodies falling onto the ground caused an audible thump. Walking over to the receptionist area, the Knight slammed his hands onto the counter.

"Plus one to Sir Blitz party please." Castor declared.

Shaking in fear, the woman behind the counter responded nervously:

"Yes sir. R-Right this way."

Walking up the cascading staircase, the woman escorted the Masked Knight to Sir Blitz chambers. Castor's entrance only interrupted the man in the middle of the act, causing the ladies in the room to cover themselves in embarrassment.

"Tch. Just when I was about to get to the good part. What do you want Sir Bastion? Done playing doctor and nurse with the strange giant now?" Blitz inquired irritated.

"No need to stop on my account. You're the one who told me to meet you here. I thought this trip was business only. I didn't know you came for pleasure as well." Castor retorted, amused at the frustration in the man's voice.

The door to the room was locked behind him. The escorts exited the room, all shuffling to flee as fast as they could.

"Just a little celebratory present to myself for luring the kidnapper here." Blitz declared grinning.

Castor's eyes expanded widely.

"Oh?!" Castor astonished.

"Taking him down in the street would have been too messy. The owner of this brothel and I are good friends, I've already told her to make arrangements."Blitz stated, hopping up from the bed naked as he was born, clutching onto a spare towel to his right.

"You care to explain how you found him?" Castor questioned, confident this was another of the Knight's ruse.

"I saw through his barrels with my Sixth Sense. They were several living bodies stuffed in them, mixed among the wines. Most of them deceased of course."Blitz said calmly.

"Haki? You're capable of it?" Castor inquired intrigued.

"Among the five shields... They exist an elite vanguard of knights known as Oubourous. All of us possess Haki, of course. It's a requirement for those who are potential guards for the King at the Reverie.

Like I said earlier. Taking him out in the streets would have lead to too much confusion. I planned to confront him and yourself here."
Blitz stated, shuffling around the room to assemble the pieces of his armour set.

Drawing his long sword Valor, the Meito blade shone of bright white steel, as if the moon itself was shining in their presence.

"I wasn't sure when his Lordship paired us up. However, I was certain when you worked your Black Magic on that woman earlier today. There's a darkness within you. It definitely doesn't feel like that of the noble hero."
Blitz declared, his usual animated demeanor turned stern.

Gashi Gashi Gashi Gashi

"I have no idea what your talking about Sir Blitz. If I did, it would be surely not magic. Science explains lightning as a naturally occurring phenomenon. However, if you draw that blade against me. I'll have no choice but to retaliate in self-defense, surely." Castor stated, grinning beneath his mask.

"I've never trusted Jotun Knights. Here in Vana, assault is punishable by murder. Knights are no exception. I shall see to your execution myself." Blitz declared, spitting onto the ground in disgust, pointing his blade towards the Masked Knight.




Enroute to the Scarlet Rose, lurking in the shadows with his cart setup in front of the brothel, was the kidnapper, Richie in question. He'd been monitoring those who go in and out of the building, biding his time to kill the nosey knight. However, his whole world would change when the Doctor he'd been stalking all this while had appeared before his eyes. Saliva began to drip rapidly, staining the man's black dress pants, his eyes expanded widely locking his sights on his mentor.

At this time, nine hours and forty-five minutes had passed since Castor had been accused by Blitz. A quarter to midnight, after valiantly avoiding Blitz attacks, the man's blade slashed his gold mask in two. Bastion - The Masked Hero's identity was revealed to the Vana Knight, beneath lied a smirking Pirate Captain, who had been awaiting Blitz's curiosity to tire but that time never came.

Thank goodness it was dark. Even someone of his size was able to move around relatively quickly without being noticed. The Scarlet Rose. That was that brothel, correct? Strange how a knight would ask to meet him there. But then again, this man didn't exactly seem to be the regular sort of knight.

As he approached the brothel, he paused. There was someone nearby. Someone who was watching him. A rather grubby man, standing by a worn cart filled with barrels. Now, normally such a person would have gone without notice, if the man hadn't approached him. "Doctor Abio!" the man spoke out, quickly approaching him. Victor paused, a little annoyed, but trying to keep some semblance of politeness. "Yes, what is it?" he said, trying to keep his tone even. The grubby man seemed overly eager to see him. "Doctor Abio, I'm a huge fan of your work! I just...I just wanted to say you've inspired me!"

Victor blinked. Inspired by his work? What sort of work was he talking about. This man didn't seem like the type to be a doctor. And then he noticed one of the barrels shifting within the cart. Richie seemed to take notice as well, glancing back at the barrel, before looking back at the doctor with a grin. Victor's mind quickly put the pieces together. "Ah, so it was you," he murmured. Richie nodded, like a happy child, "Yes! That's right! I saw how you did it. It was so clean. So easy! And you never got caught! i want to be like that! These rich bastards have been looking down on me long enough!"

On one hand, Victor couldn't help but be flattered to have an admirer. On the other hand, his work seemed rather, well, sloppy. Was he seriously keeping the bodies with him? One at a time man! Still, this proved quite the opportunity. "Well, that's quite impressive. But I must confess, I've run into a...little problem. You see, some people are starting to get suspicious. And if I'm to get out of this unharmed, well, I need something to distract them." A sinister grin spread across his face, "And fortunately for me, I found just the distraction."

At that point, violence broke out within the brothel.

The Scarlet Rose


As the fragments of Bastion's mask hit the floor, the collateral damage dealt from Blitz's blade could be seen across the room. Several deep gashes in the ceiling, wall and floor displayed just how effective the Knight's technique was. The men now faced each other, eye to eye minus one for Blitz. Taken aback by the Masked Knight's appearance.

"No wonder you wear a mask. To hide that hideous eye of yours, Sir Bastion." Bltiz declared.

"I'm quite proud of my lineage. If you think taunts are going to work on me, save your breath Sir Blitz." Castor retorted, reaching beneath his armour's backplate to draw his Nodachi - Summer Rain. Its grip was sticking out from the collar region, giving Castor easier access to remove it from its sheath. The long draw completed as the pirate extended his blade, resting it's tip onto the ground.

Pushing off using his right foot, Castor for the first time in this fight took initiative. Taking advantage of Summer's elongated reach, Castor avoided stepping all the way in towards close combat quarters. Blitz blocked the initial shoulder strike, attempting to over power the shrimp with brute power. However, the moment Castor sensed the man's weight being distributed; he'd opt out of a power struggle, side stepping to the left, releasing his grip. (HT)[Raijin's Flicker]As the man's body jerked forward, Castor would grip his blade once again with his right hand only, slashing Blitz along his closest thigh. Cutting through the man's fashionable pants, the iron wiring beneath it shredded like paper against a scissor blade.

Spinning Valor with one hand, Blitz remained focused, nursing the light scratch momentarily before ignoring it completely. Alternating the weight between his feet, Blitz dashed in, lowering his stance during the final moments, lunging his blade toward's Castor's legs. In quick response, Castor avoided the swing by turning his legs into lightning, allowing the blade to pass through.

"Oh."Blitz thought to himself, coating his blade in Busoshoku Haki. (passive) "I'm guessing that won't go as well next time." Castor stated smirking. A notable white aura began to dimly glow around Austin's person and blade, whipping around his arm like a whip, the Knight began to use his arm's elasticity to attack. Shooting the point of his blade toward's Castor's shoulder, the extended motion spilled Castor's blood onto the furry carpet floor. (LT)[White Rose] Defenses still caught off guard, Blitz removed the blade from Castor's shoulder and slashed horizontally along his chest.(LT)[Thorn]

Disbursing a high voltage of electricity, the lightning bolts gushed from the Castor's chest cage, their contact points aimed at Blitz's kneecap and kidney regions. The bolts that took on the visage of wolf heads burned through the Knights armour, electrocuting Blitz, rendering him temporarily stunned. (LT)[10 Million Volt - Raiju] "That ability of yours... I knew your face looked familiar. Your that pirate who was causing trouble in Asgar. Castor O. Nox - Sanpaku." Blitz exclaimed, astonished at the revelation."Being a popular man is hard. Can I tell you a joke?" Castor inquired, taking stance to attack once more.

The fighting inside the brothel distracted Richie, turning his attention away from the doctor. Victor took this opportunity to move. Pulling a syringe from his pocket, he jammed the needle right into his thigh, a burning sensation running through his body. A loud growl erupted from Victor's throat as he felt his muscles tighten, and a wave of unnatural anger shot through him. Behind his glasses, one could almost see his eyes glow red. (Chemical Fury, Attack +25%)

Richie turned and blinked in confusion, just in time to see the doctor jam another syringe into him. Victor let out another growl as the burning intensified, everything around him seemed to slow down a little. (toggle activated. Reflex +20%, Willpower -20%) "D-Doctor?" the grungy man stammered, a little confused. Then, the doctor suddenly lunged at him. Faster than anyone of his size had any right to move. Richie barely had time to react before a needle was jammed into his arm. It took only a second before a wave of pain ran through his body, letting out a cry of pain. (Seering Lactic - LT - hit, -25% defense).

Richie stumbled back, clutching his seering arm. "Wh-What is this!?" he blathered, suddenly realizing that his idol was attacking him. Acting without thinking, he turned and grabbed one of the barrels on his cart, showing a surprising amount of strength as he launched it at the doctor. Growling and bristling with unnatural anger, Victor moved like a snake, avoiding the barrel as he broke on the ground behind him, a dead body flopping out. (Barrel Toss - LT - miss).

Panic was starting to grip the copycat now. He had never expected his mentor to be able to move like that. He had never expected him to attack him. He just wanted to make him proud. He wanted to be just like him! Richie spun to grab another barrel. However, at the same time, Victor pulled a vial out of his coat. He heaved the glass container with all his might, the vial smashing against Richie's back. As the vial broke, there was a loud explosion, mixing with the cry of pain coming from Richie. (Vial Bomb - LT - hit) (Riche's LT - miss)

As the smoke started to clear, Victor lept into the smoke cloud, letting out a bestial growl as he closed in on Richie. He would be met with a fist from the homeless kidnapper, right into Victor's jaw (Richie's UT - hit). But that single blow wasn't enough to stop Victor. Pushing back against him, Victor swung his own fist, delivering a painful punch right to Richie's head, causing him to stagger. (Victor's UT - hit)

The Scarlet Rose


Breaking through the walls of the closed room, Castor and Blitz feverishly exchanged a series of strikes. In the corridor overlooking the foyer area, the two men danced steps to a rhythm, not many others, could have matched. Sweat dripping from their brows at every pace, Blitz temporarily taking the upper hand. When it came to pure swordsmanship, it was clear that the Knight's own was superior, and moving around in the heavy suit of armour was proving to prohibit Castor's movement. Disbursing electricity from his entire body as they fought, fragments of the melted armour plastered the brothel's floor. Leaving temporarily, puddles of gold that ended up hardening into flat plates ontop the ground. Alleviated from his disguise, Castor was able to finally fight as he normally would.

"I don't know how Knights of Jotun do it... That armour is more of a decorative piece to me."
Castor declared, sighing a breath of relief, stretching out the various strained joints on his body.

"It's a discipline. A small minded man of your stature couldn't hope to understand." Blitz concluded.

Dashing inward at a tremendous speed, Blitz slashed open Castor's right thigh, cutting through his hakama. Busoshoku covered the blade, blackening its texture, which caused the Three Eye Tribesman's blood to shine in contrast. Castor accepted it, he was inferior with the sword alone against the Knight.

"I didn't want to use this unless it was necessary. However, at this rate, I'll keep avoiding his attacks, but this fight will go nowhere."Castor thought.

Sheathing his blade, the Pirate Captain rose his hand above his head, concentrating a mixture of positive and negative charges of bolts above him. Firing off a single lightning bolt through the ceiling, the massive surge expanded towards the heavens, harking an ominous tension among the clouds. A single clap of thunder roared, as if the clouds in the sky were screaming it's praises for the electrical meal. As the offering continued to surge upward, Blitz stood in awe at the spectacle that was transpiring before him. The Unmasked Knight appeared as an ethereal being, almost untouchable was the pressure and heat that surrounded his body, stepping any closer would have caused Blitz's very armour to heat up, cooking him beneath it in the process.

In a matter of seconds, the mood of the forecast changed significantly. The once cotton white clouds were tainted by Castor's power, their morality altered towards heinous actions. Multiple wicked booms rained down at Castor's command, a simple snap as the catalyst. Ripping apart the brothel, several buildings surrounding it, and riddling Blitz body with lightning bolts, the man's armour was stripped away from the surge, his bodies agility stripped away with every strike. The storm would continue to rage on but the bolts shortened, the blackened clouds still trying to organize their displeasure with the peons below them. (AOE)[Jupiter's Rising]

Plumes of smoke trailing off Austin's body set the scene as the scent of torched flesh in the air painted tragedy for the Knight. Castor shifted through his utility to grab onto his spear Iris during the man's current paralysis situation. His confidence with a katana wasn't high to say the least, his Nodachi was just optimal in most scenarios over his spear.However, the familiarity Castor had with Iris made his next steps even sharper. Dashing inward, the floor now riddled with holes from the Lightning Storm, the levitating warrior began a series of thrusts that forced Blitz to move his body through willpower alone. Trying to intercept the incoming barrage, Castor bore several holes in the Knight's exposed flesh, sending him flying over the balcony, onto the foyer's floor.

The storm starting to rage up above fit the mood perfectly, as things were going from bad to worse for poor Richie. His idol, the man who he desired to take after, was now trying to murder him, going full feral on him. His punches didn't seem to be doing much in this case, forcing the homeless kidnapper to get desperate. He scrambled back onto his cart, trying to reach for another barrel to heft at the mad doctor.

And it was at that point that the doctor pulled out another vial, and popped the cork. Suddenly, dark vapors began to fill the air, surrounding both the doctor and Richie. His eyes widened as he felt the vapors going down his throat, starting to choke him, starting to burn him. He could barely breath. In desperation, he grabbed the nearest barrel and launched it at where the doctor had once been. Unfortunately for him, the clawing smog made it difficult to see, and he could only hear the barrel hitting the ground harmlessly. (Toxic Vapors - AoE - hit) (Richie's LT - miss)

Through the toxic mist, seemingly unharmed by the poison, Victor strode towards the cart where Richie was clawing for breath. A low growl of anger emerged from him as he closed in, all this chemically induced anger focused on the poor scapegoat. The man had the audacity to imitate him, and to make things even worse, imitate him BADLY. His toxic fumes were already a death sentence for the poor man, but now, Victor wanted to make him suffer.

Through teary eyes, Richie spotted the form of the doctor approaching him. He quickly grasped another barrel, and with all his might hefted it at the doctor. This time, Victor couldn't react fast enough, the barrel crashing into him. There was a cry of shock as the body within, still alive, spilled out. The unfortunate man would then start coughing and choking on the poisonous smog. Victor was knocked onto his back, and before he could get back up, Richie had pounced at him, desperately trying to beat the doctor down and escape. (Richie's LT - hit) (Richie's UT - hit).

Victor grunted from the pain, but right now his anger was overriding it. As Richie tried to scramble out of the toxic cloud, Victor's arm shot out, grabbing hold of his ankle and ranking him to the ground. Richie fell face first with a thud, his head connecting with the stone floor knocking some teeth loose. (Victor's UT - hit)

The Scarlet Rose


Like a comet shooting from the sky, the loud thump of Blitz's body falling one story onto the floor was gut wrenching. Shattering several vertebrae in the man's spine, it was a sickening sound. Following was a stream of profanity; the man cursed the Three Eye's very existence with every foul racist slur he could muster. Through pure willpower alone, Austin screamed at the top of his lungs, increasing the size of the white aura that enshrouded him, returning to his feet. His body barren of its former glory, armorless, Blitz's desire to crush Castor multiplied. Descending towards Blitz, Castor used his abilities to create an electrical field around himself that hoisted him from walking, drifting leisurely to the Knight's position.

"When I was younger, I read tons of books about men like you. Heroes who wear big shiny armour and swing massive swords... Vanquishing beasts and tyrants alike. Until one day, I realised. To humans, I'm the beast. I'll never get to be the hero. Neither my circumstances nor personality permitted it. Then it dawned on me... Like a vision as clear as a prophets own. I want to be the monster. I want to hunt people like you. Humans... No... Any race from which a hero is born... I want to rewrite the fables to read - 'The monster slayed the hero'" Castor declared, concluding his long soliloquy.

Chuckling to himself at the pirates words, "I guess we're more alike than you think. I used to read those very stories... Except, I always visualized myself as the hero. Common born scum such as yourself aren't allowed dreams. Especially an extra eyed freak like you." Blitz retorted.

Changing the pace of his breathing, Blitz focused solely on regaining his composure.His body would randomly convulse, vision becoming blurry and aside from his spine, he'd managed to avoid sustaining any damage that would prohibit him from fighting. In his mental image, there was only one end to this conflict, and that was him coming out victorious. Once Castor was within in jumping distance, the man leaped a remaining forty meters to intercept Nox's descent, viciously cutting open Castor's abdomen. Pushing the force inward, Blitz would slam Castor's body into the floor, pinning him down. (HT)[Black Rose]

The man's jet black longsword caused Castor's blood to pour ounces upon ounces onto the surface, wedging his blade deeper as Castor attempted to reject the alien object with his own Busoshoku. Hand firmly clutching onto his spear, Castor managed to break away from the man's hold, transforming into his element, spinning Iris. The wind generated from his spear's perpetual motion meshed with his own electricity, immersing the Knight in a miniature tornado.

Tossing him from side to side, Blitz's body lashed about in the eye of the tornado, each time it'd crashed onto the opposite side of the natural disaster, the spear's tip waiting to puncture the man's spine. Discharging sharp electrical bursts to further cause damage along the man's spinal cord. (HT)[Indra's Rage] As the motion subsided, the final moments of the disaster's strength concluded with Blitz's body being violently slapped against the floor.

Menacingly towering over the knight, Castor began to fire in rapid succession bursts of lightning bolts into the man's shoulder. Much like a pistol, round after round riddled the man's body, electrocuting him with every volley. (LT)[Volt] A cold sweat came over the denizen of lightning, frozen, Castor clutched at his mid-section. His body began to feel weak suddenly, and after examining the rosary red color of his palm, Nox knew the reason why.

The room was riddled with the bodies of prostitutes and debris caused by the still looming thunderstorm. With the ceiling destroyed, it left an open air feel to the estate for the two combatants whose brawl left the building's architecture in shambles.

Richie gagged and caughed. His lungs were burning. His vision was becoming blurred by tears, and now his face was hurting from the fall. He tried to scramble to his feet, but his muscles were starting to give out. The poor man started to drag himself across the floor, trying to find some means of escape. Everything had been going so well, and it went wrong in almost an instant. With each second, strength was leaving him. He could barely go on.

With his strength giving out, Richie rolled onto his back, his bloodshot eyes looking skyward. There, he saw Victor standing over him. The same man he had idolized, was now the man killing him. Richie could barely get a word out, before his eyes rolled back into his head. With one last wheeze, the last of Richie's life left him. All that remained was a corpse, sitting in the middle of the street.

Victor took in a deep breath. The chemical concoction in his veins was still pushing him towards anger, but he was starting to calm down. Well, he had managed to find the copy cat and take them down. And the barrels of bodies was all the proof he needed. Now, just to talk to Mr Bastion. He slowly turned towards the brothel, where the sounds of fighting had intensified. Something told him that Bastion was in the middle of all of this.

Well, everyone could use a doctor now and again.

The Scarlet Rose


Both men were in need of immediate medical attention, however, one of them wouldn't be receiving it. For only God could resurrect the deceased, and as Castor ominously hovered over the now crippled Knight, the conversation between The Almighty and Blitz would come shortly. Whether or not he'd make it, back to this world would be a decision out of his hands.

Unable to feel below his torso, a stream of tears began to flow from the Knight's eyes. This was the high that Castor lived for, the moments where a long hunt had come to a close. An instinct he'd hone in the wild on Minion Island, a preditor's pleasure that no woman or alcohol could provide him. Adding a spinning motion to his spear, Castor would thrust Iris into the man's shoulder causing him to screech out in pain. Whimpering, Blitz's undergarments sullied with excretions of all kinds, the Knight's consciousness began to fade. (LT)[Drill)

Plucking the spear from his shoulder blade, the sensation of the blade being removed awoke the Knight to an alertness in his senses once again. Panting for breath, "Mercy. From one warrior to another... I give my word. Anything you need... Money... Connections... Power. Vana can become our safe haven! Don't you grow tired of being a wanted man on the seas?!"Blitz belted, his calm and reserved personality faltering him in his final moments.

Sinking the spear's tip into the man's kidney region, blood gushed from his mouth like information from a freshly ruptured cyst. (LT)[Impale] The look on Castor's face was spine-chilling, it leaves the mightiest warrior in the coldest of sweats. What made it even more horrific was the fact that throughout all the man's begging for mercy and partnership, a seemingly permanent smirk, broad in nature from chin to chin was displayed proudly on his face.

"And the mighty knight... No matter how much he begged... The monster couldn't understand his language. For his language was that of violence."Castor stated, speaking in his native Three Eye Tribesman tongue. The words would come off as mad ramblings to Blitz but it solidified one fact in the Knight's mind, there would be no reasoning with Castor.

As the executioner's blade left, it's sheath, Nox covered it's likeness in surges of electricity. Raising the blade above his head, the pirate captain froze.

"Even if I die here... The young master will avenge me. Kill me! The moment my life ends... You'll be wanted by every shield! Ouroboros will hunt you down! Murder everyone you have ever loved and cared for!" Blitz shouted aggressively with his final lung full of breaths.

Continuing to speak in his native tongue, Castor's blade swung horizontally, releasing an electrically charged arc of the wind which picked up Blitz's body and sent him flying through the brothel's door into the street. (LT)[Luna's Kiss] Landing only a few inches from the building's entrance, the Knight's body was riddled with gashes and scratches from head to toe. Walking to the outside, Castor removed his spear from the Knight's shoulder. The streets emptied, no one wanted to be anywhere near the lightning storm. Every building for up to a block was deserted, everyone in Vana valued self.  
"The monster rejoiced. After ages of books being written about heroes slaying beasts. The beast had slain the hero."Castor declared in his native tongue.

The knights of Vana evacuated all the citizen's in effort to defend against the natural disaster that descended on Ryker's Street. The only persons remaining in the eye of this madness were Victor and Castor. Sheathing Summer's Rain, the exposed pirate in his traditional kimono and torn hakama wear shot a grin toward's Victor.

"If you haven't guessed by now... I'm not actually a Knight."Castor declared, switching back to common tongue so Victor would understand him. Falling to his knees, the Pirate Captain began to pant rapidly. Body covered in perspiration, Castor's consciousness was wavering in and out due to the blood loss. With a giant bright red stain in his white kimono, the oozing blood from his abdomen region made it imminent that the fight between the Knight was not easily fought or won.

Gashi Gashi Gashi

Trying to apply as much pressure as he could on his own, Castor called out to the Doctor. "I'm in need of a doctor and a place to lie low. If I knew this fight would have ended so messily, I wouldn't have burned down your clinic." Castor said chuckling, falling onto the ground, still conscious but too weak to walk.

Victor walked through the door to the brothel, the toxic smog following behind him. He had arrived just in time to see the aftermath of the battle. So, it seems the two knights were fighting it out, while Victor was dealing with Richie. And it seems the false knight was the winner. At the three eyed man's comments, Victor gave a small smile. "That's alright. I admit I'm not much of a doctor myself. I more consider myself a scientist." He approached the bleeding man, kneeling down as he pulled a syringe out of his coat pocket, "That being said, I do consider myself somewhat competent." He jammed the syringe into 'Bastion's' arm. The pirate would feel his body starting to recover somewhat from his fight. Nowhere near full health, but still, it was something.

With his 'patient' stabilized, Victor hefted him up onto his shoulder. He gave a small chuckle at the comment about his clinic burning down. "Oh, don't worry. I'm a man that's good at improvising. But for now, I think it would be best if we left this place." He started to carry him outside of the ruined brothel. Thankfully the mist was starting to dissipate. He looked over, seeing Richie's cart sitting there. Well, it certainly made things easier than just carrying him. He carried 'Bastion' over to the cart and set him down, before his eyes fell onto the body of Richie.

Hmm, if he was to 'clear his name' as it were, he needed Richie to hand over to the authorities. He moved over to collect the poisoned body, before carrying him over and flopping him into the cart. But then there was the matter of the other knight. A dead knight would cause problems. Perhaps there was a way to turn this to their advantage.

"I'll be right back," Victor said to Bastion, turning to head back into the brothel. Moments later, he was carrying out the bloody corpse of Sir Blitz, dumping his body right next to Richie's body.

Vana's Lordship


Fleeing Ryker's Street, the phony Knight and Doctor duo hoisted their assortment of 'trophies' and fled the scene of the crime. Over the next seven days, the following events unfolded.

Ryker's Street was reopened, meteorologists in Vana tried to analyze what had caused the weather phenomenon but to no avail. The act was dubbed an omen, summed up as Black Magic by neighbouring states and others who called it from a more atheist stance, said what it really was, an act of nature.

After which, a District wide search began for the Masked Knight Bastion and the Dazzling Knight Blitz who had been investigating the kidnappings in the area. They were spotted on Ryker's Street the day of the incident and have been missing every since.The incident at the Scarlet Rose would be dubbed The Black Storm Disaster, a tragedy that took the lives of fifty-two prostitutes and sixteen bystanders.

Five Days After The Black Storm Disaster | At Home Clinic

Shortly after securing their hideout, the family members of this particular home were placed into a deep slumber. Resting on a patient bed, Castor had been patched up along his abdomen by Victor, the wounds still fresh, the pain wasn't unbearable but it hindered quick movements. Bed ridden, the Pirate Captain used his electric radio to listen into the gossip on the streets outside of the clinic's walls. Five days worth of rumours, news reports and statements from the Kingdom stayed jumbled in his mind.

"How long before this heals up Doc?" Castor inquired, clutching at his abdomen. "The longer we stay missing, the harder it will be to clean this up. However, I have a plan as long as you're wiling to play ball. I need you to develop a poison and an antinode. If you already have one in mind, that'd be super."Castor declared. Pacing his speech, it'd take awhile before Castor would be able to elaborate the entire plan due to his injuries, it'd become a task to even speak.

"The plan is simple. We'll inject them with a poison that deteriorates both their bodies rapidly. The story is we discovered the kidnapper and his victims... His base of operations was the Scarlet Rose. By time we made it there, he'd already destroyed the evidence and attempted to use a poisonous gas to eliminate both Blitz and myself.

I managed to strike him down but by time the fight concluded, Blitz was in critical condition from the toxin. That's when I turned to you, the new doctor in town for help. Miraculously, you developed the cure, but it was too late for Blitz. His wounds from the struggle with the kidnapper and added affects of the poison killed him in the end.

You get to be the hero who saved me, the Masked Knight Bastion of Jotun and developed a cure for poison he had been testing on the populous unknowingly to the court... That last part is key. We need to make it feel as though the effects of his crimes are still a prevalent issue."
Castor concluded.

Once he had gotten Bastion, or who he learned later, Castor, somewhere secluded and safe, things quieted down for a bit. Tending to Castor's wounds hadn't been too difficult. Regular injections of his medicine had helped with his recovery. Still, it was best to ensure he reached full recovery, and gave things time to cool down. After all, so many people had died during the 'storm', and two knights had gone missing, one of which was in a bed recovering, and the other laying dead in another room.

As Castor asked him how long it would take, Victor was giving Castor another injection of medicine. "It shouldn't be much longer. Thankfully your body's recovering quite quickly. Honestly, you're more able to get on your feet right now if you so wish." And then, Castor spoke of his idea. Make it seem like they were poisoned. Well, with Richie, it wouldn't be too hard. Victor had poisoned the bastard to death. With Blitz, it certainly wouldn't be hard to fake a poisoning. "I have just the thing. Just give me a few moments, and both bodies will be ready for our little cover story." Victor smiled, heading into the next room.

It look a little bit. He needed the 'poison' to work its magic through Blitz' corpse to show the ravages of toxic poisoning. An antidote was then applied to stop the toxin, but not before it did irreversible damage to the knight's body. Now for Richie. Several stabs with a scalpel to simulate war wounds, making it seem like he was killed in a fight, rather than simply choking to death on toxic fumes. Once he was done, he walked to the room where Castor was waiting. "Our corpses are ready. Shall we get going, 'Sir Bastion'?" he chuckled.

Vana's Lordship


During last remaining days in the week after the ordeal, Castor spent it hunting around the town for a blacksmith who could replicate his trademark mask. Since it was made of gold, it'd cost a pretty penny but money wasn't much of a problem for the pirate. Castor and Dax had made a killing working in Jotun and Asgar as Knights for hire. On the seventh day, the mask was complete. Wrapping the bodies of the two deceased men in bandages, embalming fluid was used to prevent any further decay, Victor loaded Richie's cart with the cargo.

Castor returned to the Vana's stronghold in the Castle Vert to report his side of the incident that transpired over the last week. Escorted into the Castle's Hall's, barren of his usual golden armour, the imp was forced to wear a steel set in the interim. The only thing gold on him was his mask, which covered his entire face as usual, leaving gaps for sight, breathing and speech. The mask carried no unique features it was blank, plain smooth gold with no frills are markings on it.

Traversing through the castle's halls, on the wall pictures of all of Vana's previous leaders, even former King's of Lvneel were hung. The final portrait before the entrance to the main hall was the Late Vassal Lord, Bolden Senoir's son. The oak doors with golden trims forming Vana's sigil creaked open, as the light from the stained glass in the room illuminated the dreary ambiance. Sitting on the Throne was a small preteen, probably no older than thirteen but definitely over the age of ten, from the looks of him, his age was incredibly hard to discern.

At his side was the man of the hour, the real person he'd have to convince. Sir Oliver Bolden, first of his name and council to the Vassal. A decorated war veteran who'd made a name for himself in Lvneel's initial squabbles with neighbouring Kingdom's like Flevance in his youth. A man whose intimate gaze made the weakest of souls confess their deepest truths. Elderly in appearance, the man kept proper care of his body and even his facial hair, always keep a clean trim and line up at all times. Protocol was his sport, and penalities was his reward, an event he'd win gold medals in every time.

Sitting in the throne, shaking his feet back and forth, fiddling with a metal puzzle, the challenge of the day presented to him by his uncle, the Lord played his small part and continued fidgeting away.

"Sir Bastion - The Masked Knight of Jotun. I hereby turnover oversight of this ordeal to my council, Sir Bolden Senior." Raphael Bolden declared with his prepubescent voice.  

"Amusing." Castor thought to himself, as he'd watch the torch of authority being passed around so flagrantly.

Clearing his throat, "Sir Bastion. This week has been filled with many a hurdle. Lord Waldon is also wondering about your whereabouts... You choose quite an interesting time to go missing... Any words?" Bolden inquired, shuffling through layers of documents that were being passed to him for his approval even during the hearing.

Laughing audibly, "You'd be incorrect in that assumption Mi Lord. I did not 'go missing'. If that was my intention, this meeting wouldn't be happening and I'd be back in my lord's care far before any of your court would know. Two barrels deep in Vana's finest wine and several sessions of passion worth in Jotun's wildest brothel. However, I refrain from these pleasures... as I mourn." Castor stated eloquently.

Raising his brow and his head to now make eye contact with the Knight.

"Oh?" Bolden inquired. "Who is it that burdens your heart?" Bolden Senior inquired.

Changing his facial expression and body language on cue, Castor's knack for acting shone in this moment. The man's body winced as a mother's own would during labour pains and his eyes began to water, visibly shedding tears which streamed onto the floor from beneath his mask. It was only because of the whimpering that the men present were able to tell that he was crying, as Castor's face was concealed but when playing a role, the pirate through his entire being into the part.

"I regret to inform his lordship that Sir Austin Blitz... has passed. The reason I have been missing for the last few days is because I watched him perish." Castor declared, smirking beneath his mask, a quick guilty pleasure that faded immediately with a single dip of his head towards the floor, raising his head once more, to display the frown through the gap in his mask.

The Knights in the room went into a frenzy.

"What do you mean you watched him die pipsqueak!?"one of the Knights heckled. With one signal from his hand, Lord Bolden returned order to the room.

Calmly, "Your words are like a serpent's coil. Explain yourself." Lord Bolden Senior declared

"I mean exactly what I said. I watched Sir Austin die right before my eyes and if it wasn't for the Good Doctor. I would be dead as well."
Castor declared, planting the seeds he'd need to manipulate the situation in his favour.

"The good doctor? You're mincing words again Sir Bastion. Speak openly. Analogies will only lead to futher misunderstandings. I'd do well that you remember where you are."
Sir Bolden Senior stated sternly.

"I will speak openly. Once the doctor arrives. I'll show you for yourselves how Sir Blitz passed. I'll even present you his murderer right at your feet. The culprit caught both of us off guard." Castor retorted

"Seal all the exits. If any doctor appears at our doors within the hour. Welcome him with open arms. For if this explanation isn't to my liking... I'll have your head." Bolden stated calmly.

"I assure you Mi Lord. Once you see the bodies, the issue that we have to tackle even now will become much more urgent than punishing his murderer. There's no need to beat a dead dog." Castor concluded.

Murmurs filled the room with distrust for the Masked Knight, the way he carried himself and spoke left many on the fence. He was neither declaring himself as the culprit or proclaiming that he wasn't, which left the court's opinion crazed. Sir Bolden and Sir Blitz were great friends, so the news was extremely unsettling to the old geezer who saw Austin as the future.

Castor had gone on ahead of him as he headed to the palace, to prepare the place for the doctor's arrival. Meanwhile, Victor had to pull along the cart that contained the bodies of both Richie, his unfortunate copycat, and the late sir Blitz, who had been murdered by his new associate. He kept the cart covered, in order to prevent a panic from the people of the town. Thankfully, Victor's size allowed him to pull the cart with relative ease, though he'd be lying if he said it didn't attract his fair share of stares.

Before long, he reached the palace. The guards, caught a little off guard by his appearance, moved to stop him. One of them even pointed his spear at him. Such nerve! Victor kept his calm though, looking the guards in the eye. "I am Doctor Victor Abio. I do believe Sir Bastion told you to expect me," he said, keeping calm. the guards paused, hesitating for a moment, before stepping aside to allow Victor passage through. As the gates opened, Victor strode in, pulling the cart behind him.

The castle was quite spacious, so it wasn't too difficult to get the cart inside and towards the throne room. Castor had told him where it was, and had given him directions. As he stepped into the room, all eyes turned to the large doctor. But victor's eyes fell on the masked face of Castor. He smiled and gave him a nod. "I'm glad you were able to prepare them good sir," he said to the 'knight', before bowing to the king and the others. "Your majesty, fine gentlemen. My name is Dr. Victor Abio. It pains me to have to bring this news to you." He turned to the cart, pulling the tarp away to reveal the two bodies.

Vana's Lordship


Gasps filled the courtroom as the Knights present murmured among themselves at the barely recognizable body of Sir Austin Blitz. Purple discolored veins pulsated across the knight's body, now clothed only in a loincloth, made ascertaining his condition easy.

The other man Richie was in much worse condition, due to the mixture of chemicals pumped in his body by Victor during their fight, his already naturally round stomach enlarged. If any thoughts of piercing the stomach would come to mind, buckets full of discharge would ooze, gushing onto the floor, accompanied by the foulest of scents.

Sir Bolden took a minute to compose himself. The history between Sir Austin and him was one of a master and student. He’d known very well what the Knight was capable of, especially, the lengths it’d take to kill him.

Before the Lord could even muster the words to inquire about his friend’s death, Bastion began to articulate his snake oil salesman pitch.

“The man beside Sir Bastion was the serial kidnapper plaguing the streets of Vana!

Austin and I tracked him down, but we played right into his trap. Both of us we’re afflicted with a poison that inhibited our skills.

After vanquishing him, our lives were dwindling quickly. It was a suicide attempt on his part to kill all of us that day in the Scarlet Rose. Not only the poison but the elements wasn’t in our favor!

That’s when Doctor Victor Abio came and saved my life. However… The wounds from our fight were much worse in Sir Blitz case. By the time treatment was administered it was too late.”
Castor stated, making sure to choose his words wisely.

Sir Bolden simply listened, pulling his beard as a coping mechanism to suppress his anger. Only one point streamed through his mind, he wasn’t the kind of man who doubted each and every word people presented to him.

Obvious loop holes in stories kind of jump out at him, and failing to provide sufficient information to his interrogation resulted in execution on the spot or becoming a toy in his favourite hobby in torture.

“So. You and this doctor… Want me to believe that two Knights such as yourselves in the peak of physical condition lost to an overweight half-pint like this abomination in the cart before me. Don’t insult my intelligence.” Sir Bolden declared, signaling to his knights to apprehend the men.

Encircling the duo, the hungry guards desperate for action, followed the Lord’s command as instructed, but their advance was frozen by an overwhelming pressure that weighed them down even more so the closer to the Masked Knight they got. It was an ominous feeling, as if any further steps in would result in their heads being severed from their bodies.

“It’d hope that you would offer me the same respect. Of course this pathetic obese commoner could never have bested Blitz or me!” Castor barked, the noticeable anger in his voice. The man’s manner of speech was so unhinged, it took even Bolden aback.

“You claim the impish man was the murderer. Now. You say he isn’t. Your words are filled with lies!” Bolden exclaimed.

“And your ears are filled with sand! Like I said…The poison and the elements were against us! His accomplice was who did this to us both! Look at the blade wounds on our bodies!” Castor shouted, bringing attention to Blitz’s body as he began to strip down to his undergarments, leaving his upper and lower body naked.

Across Castor’s body, several scars from various fights over the years were displayed but as the man began to rip off the bandages from his most recent injury, he revealed a deep gash bounded together by a plethora of stitches. Along with his abdomen, injuries to his chest and shoulder were also noticeable, none of which were any less painful looking than the other.

“The man responsible for this and accomplice to the kidnapper was Castor O. Nox! The Super Rookie who has been spotted across Lvneel!

It was not only his abilities that injured us but caused the natural disaster on Ryker’s Street!”
Castor exclaimed.

Chaos broke out in the court once again. After the incident in Asgar, Castor’s name had become a buzz word for misfortune. Not to mention the pirate had openly targeted Lord Stein, mentioning the man’s name caused Lord Bolden’s eyes to expand widely.

Raising his hand to silence the murmurs once more, “Doctor Abio. Can you confirm this man’s words?” Lord Bolden inquired, his face now visibly disturbed at the revelation.

What terrified Bolden truly wasn’t the rookie’s name, all pirates were the same to him, scum. However, anyone who had the balls to mess with Stein’s operation was someone he wanted nothing to do with and everything to know about. Unknown to the court or even the young lord, Bolden had discovered many unsettling details of the Vassal Lord’s operation.

The shield was weak now with an infant as it’s Lord and for the time being, Bolden prioritized any information he could use involving Stein for the upcoming storm that seemed to be on the horizon. To him, the only duty in his interest was the young lord and Vana itself.

At first, it seemed like Castor's little plan was about to have a disastrous outcome. Indeed, the others were having a hard time believing that the homesless Richie would be able to take out a knight and wound another. The poison had been the key to this little story, but it wasn't enough. Victor had seen the flaws to begin with, but had been hoping the knights and nobles were complete fools. So much for that possibility.

However, Castor then broke out his trump card. That Richie wasn't alone, and that they were attacked by the Supernova Castor Nox. Quite an interesting move. He had heard rumours of the pirate on the island before this encounter, but paid them no mind. But blaming a Supernova for the death oif a knight. Well, that wasn't too far from the truth. And it was a much more believable story as well, as the guards paused in their advancement, and Lord Bolden asked Victor is this was true. time to put on his best acting.

"I did not see the man myself, but the evidence does seem to suggest so." He looked back at the two corpses before looking back to the Knight. "Castor Nox has been rumoured to cause environmental disasters whenever he strikes, and there was a vicious thunder storm on the night in question. The wounds inflicted on both Sir Blitz and Sir Bastion here, also suggest someone with capable skill with a blade. It certainly would seem that someone like Castor would be possible of such a feat."

He looked at the bloated corpse of Richie. "As Sir Bastion says, I believe our bloated friend here was one of his cohorts. The poison I believe was his doing, but his carelessness resulted in his own death. A pathetic man following a monster of a pirate." How ironic, considering he was now following said monstrous pirate. He turned his attention back to the gathered knights and guards. "It would seem though, that since the encounter, the disappearances that had been occurring have ceased. It seems our bloated friend here had been doing it on behalf of Castor."

Now, here's to hoping that they bought it.

So The Story Goes

Lord Bolden took into account the Doctor’s statement. Had the man been too zealous in his support of Bastion’s testimony, Bolden would opt to believe this whole story was indeed a rouse.

Leaning over towards the Young Lord, Bolden began to whisper into Raphael’s ears. After about ten minutes, standing from his seat on the throne, the young Lord addressed the court.

“Your testimonies today has been taken in good favor, Sir Bastion. Sir Victor. Unfortunately, this last week has left us as a Shield shaken up. My regards to Lord Waldon for this interrogation process but of course, given the timing, we had to cover all of our bases.”Raphael spoke elegantly.

Clapping his hands together, “Sir Austin Blitz will now be awarded the Golden Sigil of Vana for his work as a Knight to the Veil!

Sir Victor Abio! For your talents in the medical field, I, Raphael Bolden appoint you Chief Head of Medicine at our General Hospital. In the event that a poison so heinous ever rears it’s head in Vana again, we’ll have your talents at our disposal. Of course, you’ll be given your own ward to do with what you please and an adequate salary!”
Raphael exclaimed.

Plopping back onto his throne, Sir Bolden Senior would pat the young lord on his shoulder.

“As for you Sir Bastion. In speed of our fallen, it is under my authority as acting Senior Advisor of Vana’s Court to appoint you the mission of investigating Castor’s purpose here in Vana.

Though you’re Waldon’s Knight, from now on when you are in Vana , you work for me directly. Since Doctor Abio was responsible for creating a solution for Castor’s accomplice’s poison, I assume he’ll be looking to get his hands on an adequate replacement.

Until I can setup permanent guards for him, for the next 30 days while Dr.Abio adjusts to his new position, you’ll be his personal guard.”
Bolden commanded.


Dropping onto the court’s floor, the kneeling Knight tilted his face towards the ground in respect, at least, that’s what Bastion the Knight believed to be appropriate in this situation.

“Yes Mi Lord.”
Bastion responded.

The room was asked to be cleared. Even the various high ranking Knights in the court was excused. In the chamber, Bolden, Raphael and the Head of Knights in Vana, a man by the name of Gryphon remained of the living. Of the deceased, Blitz and Richie’s bodies were ordered to be left behind.

“What say you Gryphon?” Bolden inquired.

Twirling with his mustache, the Knight dressed in purple tinted adamant armor commented on the incident that came to pass.

“Let our doctors examine their bodies and do a full autopsy...There’s something strange about that Masked Knight. The doctor was a good acquisition. If anything, it’s the only positive outcome of this whole ordeal. Ouroboros lost a good man.” Gryphon concluded.

“I’ll look into this pirate Castor myself. If he’s someone I can use against Stein in the long run, it might be worth capturing him. I’ll break him into my own little slave.”
Sir Bolden concluded, licking his lips perversely.

“Uncle… I’m bored. Teaching Time?! Can we get right into today’s lesson?!” Raphael shouted in glee.

Smiling sadistically, “Of course. I have the perfect subjects for today’s session. All of the failures who patrolled Ryker’s Street during the Black Storm… We’ll be teaching them what happens to those who aren’t capable of fulfilling their duties.” Sir Bolden concluded.




Escorting Victor throughout the castle, a small posse of Vana knights guided the duo back out towards the entrance. Once there, a carriage was called to escort Castor and Victor to the general Vana hospital called Saint Frigg’s General.

The hospital was stretched along a massive estate, similar to the one Sir Blitz possessed. It was outfitted in the latest of medical equipment and featured several talented doctors who migrated from Flevance in search of bigger salaries and an easier life as Lvneel wasn’t often raided or troubled by pirate activity.

As the carriage pulled into the compound, the horse carriage rider turned over a letter bearing Vana’s Lord seal of approval. Inside contained a parchment indicated Victor’s new position in the hospital.

Guided to the former chief’s room that cried buckets of tears as he was being removed from his office. Through brute force nonetheless, the Knights shuffled around removing his possessions. Victor was shown around, giving light to the variety of facilities he’d now have at his disposal.

Traversing the hallway, finally alone, “I assume they are only appointing me to guard you, in the event my claims don't pan out. What are you going to do now that you have a whole hospital at your disposal? More experiments?” Castor inquired smirking beneath his mask, turning his to peer up towards the massive Doctor.

[Episode] Fools Call It Magic Not Science Empty

It appeared that Victor's testimony did indeed pan out. Good. Victor didn't consider himself much of an actor, but he knew how to lie when the situation called for it. And to make things even better, the man was now being given control over a whole hospital! A smile stretched across Victor's face. "My lord, you honour me," he said, giving him a deep bow in respect. Before long, the meeting was disbanded, and Victor was being led to the hospital in question, with the disguised Castor being appointed his bodyguard.

The hospital did indeed seem like the perfect place for a man such as him. Even better, he was being given a whole ward especially for him. To do with what he saw fit. It was almost too perfect! When he was alone with Castor, the pirate theorized that they were only kept together, in case his claims didn't pan out. "That may be. Though if it doesn't pan out, it seems you'll be in more hot water than I am. I mean, I doubt they would do all of this for a suspect." Thankfully, Victor's own testimony had given him plausible deniability in that regard.

When the question came of what they would do next, Victor chuckled. "In time. Though it might be prudent to lie low a little longer. Help build up a reputation before continuing with me experiments. What I'm curious about though is what you plan to do. I'm quite curious as to why a famed pirate, such as yourself, is running around impersonating a knight. Especially when you don't seem to have any trouble with killing the others."

As the two entered Victor's new office, he walked calmly behind his desk and took a seat. Quite nice for someone of his new position, though he would need a bigger chair ordered for him. He looked to the disguised Castor and grinned. "I get the feeling you're planning something big. And, as a scientist, I'm quite interested in seeing the outcome." Indeed, this was going to be an interesting partnership indeed.
