[Arc] [Part I] The Grave Robber - Old Wounds Won't Heal In A Day  - Page 2 Empty Re: [Arc] [Part I] The Grave Robber - Old Wounds Won't Heal In A Day

Wed Jul 13, 2022 10:40 pm
Castor and Annabelle’s endearing outburst was sufficient to liven the mood in the room as the Duke of Jewels and the Mayor of Hibiscus town broke out into laughter alongside the couple. Flashes of lightning illuminated the sky like fireworks, thunder seeming to applaud the cunning of its partisan and his Queen. Aube’s councilman smoldered apologetically over towards the Duchess of Rose, who slinked back into her chair appearing embarrassed and defeated.

“It appears that we have a course of action set. I’d be content to aide in securing Rose, I’m sure a number of our guardsmen would be ecstatic to aide in the effort.” The Duke smiled a wily grin as he attempted to pawn off his guards onto Rose. In truth this was the Duke’s real objective, to defer his city’s guardsman from his own city; the budding sprouts of organized crime had offered him a hefty sum of berri in exchange for this distraction.

“Oh sure! You’ve been doing so well managing Aube’s crime haven’t you Duke? I’ve barely heard a word of pirates funneling money into your town to extend their smuggling routes.” The Duchess smiled tauntingly, if she couldn’t secure the interests of Saint Dax she could at least interfere with the ambitions of her rivals.

“I can hardly say I know what you mean madame!” The Duke was surprised and responded with a suspicious fervor. “If we’re concerned about members of council taking money from pirates perhaps we’d be best served investigating the Capital first!” The three titled council members had schemed with one another for some time, and thus were aware of one another’s corrupt interests.

The Mayor of Hibiscus Town was rather bewildered with the tactless machinations playing out before him. Quietly speaking over to Castor “Your lordship, I apologize dearly for the conduct of our council. I can hardly imagine what they think of themselves to behave in this manner. I certainly hope that you can tame them into proper servants of the crown, and of the people; otherwise I must say that Queen Annabelle will have to legislate through a pit of vipers.”

That night in Aube, beneath the fulgurating thunderclouds, a young man dreamed of earning his place as a Royal Knight. Though the boy had faced soul crushing abuse throughout his life in the den of thieves, he still persisted. Perhaps the youthful spirits of those with dreams and ambitions could always blaze from their embers.

The Decision Ahead


"I don't quite mind taking bribes or investments from pirates. As long as they are reported. Anything illegal happening here, my crew will take a cut for protection purposes." Castor interjected at the exchange between the councilmen.

"Aside from slavery. The penalty for being a part of the slave trade on this island is now the executioner's blade." Nox declared sternly.

The brief moment of comical relief was the quiet before the storm ahead. Lvneel would face many a challenge, some from internal disputes and others from outside forces. "There's one last question I'd like to raise before we leave here." Sir Bearington stated.

"The position of Head Knight - formerly held by Karl Nox. Do you have anyone in mind for the role, Lord Duke?" Bearington inquired.

"Actually no. I do have an idea as it pertains to that. I'll also boost morale among the people." Castor inquired smirking.

The Next Day...


Everyone had their assignments, and the personal guard of Vana Knights was assembled by Castor himself to investigate the troubles in the countryside. A platoon of about twenty men escorted the Mayor back to Hisbiscus Town and began their chase.

Sir Bearington send off an envoy to Flevance to further assess the situation and the Queen reinforced her Nilf Knights to bolster efforts around the capital. A poster was also produced and spread across all the providences.

Lvneel Post wrote:"The Jules Cup. The Tournament to Find The Next Head Knight Commences in The Fall!"

The Night Before on Flevance


The Cathedral Of Seiryu and Jules Resting Place


Propped against the tomb's sealed doors, the Holy Knight of Flevance - Leonidas slept while standing. However, noise from the nearby village awoke the great man from his sleep, as he'd see smoke in the distance.

Shouting for his men to assemble, in hopes of investigating the unrest, the shadow of a giant silhouette loomed in the distance. Resting his arm on the Meito blade's hilt, "What in the world is going on?!" Leonidas shouted.

Seemingly appearing nowhere from within the shadows, the Dandy-dressed man in a top hat and a stick emerged from what seemed to be a cloud of darkness, impaling his cane into the Great Knights Mid Section.

"The timing of this was perfect. The best time to commit a crime is during chaos!" Stein, the former Head Knight, and servant to the Celestial Dragon - Sinclair declared. "Stein! First Lvneel! Now you dare bring your filth on my Queen's Land!" Leonidas shouted, slashing the cane that pierced his chest in two.

The Knight's breathing was becoming extremely erratic, even though the wound was grave, it'd take much more than that to finish off Leonidas generally.

"I see my poisons kicking in." Stein declared grinning. From the shadow at his feet, basking in the light of the half moon, a giant shadowy monster crept from the man's shadow and broke down the tomb's metallic door with brute force.

Ensuring to disappear before the Grave Robber's arrival, Stein stole not only The Legendary Sword Seiryu but the remains of Jules's corpse as well. Using the abilities of his rare Devil Fruit, the man escaped like a whisper in the wind.

That Night in Flevance


Oftentimes the graverobber Asakura was forced to work with unsavory characters in order to gain access to the tombs and mausoleums of the upper crust. However with these robbings Doji was somewhat conflicted, as though he resented most nobility, it seemed unlikely to him that Mishima Nobunaga would have died in service to them. Ultimately Doji’s work with Stein boiled down to a matter of utility, as the shadowy sanguisuge had tracked down the monster and offered him a generous sum of berri for his assistance in the cathedral robbery.

Doji bashed the door open, as Stein had said that he would handle the guard; however he was immediately infuriated when he heard how the top hatted dastard had gone about dispatching Leonidas. As Stein vaunted about the potency of his poison a red-hot aura of hatred and fury filled the room. To the oni poison was anathema to honorable conflict, a tool used by feckless cowards to compensate for their inferior ability.

The giant oni saw only red as he lashed out wildly towards the man that had tricked him into participating in an assassination. Stein remained composed, using his fruit’s power to dodge the onslaught of attacks and retrieve Seiryu from the tomb’s depths. Doji charged for the man, intending to rip him into pieces with his hooks, before the vampire disappeared in a pool of shadow. It was Doji’s violent rampage in this room that led to reports of it being ransacked, in truth the graverobber stole nothing that night, although much was destroyed.

As the yōkai’s rage began to cool, he exited the room, and looked down to the poisoned Leonidas. “Are you still there?” the monster asked solemnly.

The man lay slumped against the wall of the sepulcher, half a cane sword resting in his chest. Though his skin grew paler by the moment, his body still allowed him his laborious last breaths. Leonidas wheezed as he attempted to respond to the fiend’s query.

“You were deserving of a more honorable fate. I will remember you as a warrior robbed of his day.” The blind ogre gritted his teeth, furious with the dishonorable act he had taken part in.

With the last of Leonidas’ energy he half-opened his eyes and looked to the giant oni. “If you… Castor. Tell him… how proud…” Though the man’s life slipped away as he spoke, Doji understood what he meant even with its absences.

Somebody by the name of Castor was worthy of a warrior’s pride. Maybe someday the yōkai would cross paths with this man.

A Morning in Hibiscus Town

The Mayor and his men made their way back into town at the hour of high noon, the sun filtered down through breaking storm clouds upon the scene of wreckage. The house of the pastor Lerévérend had been broken down at its foundations and strewn over the hillside, furthermore the town’s graveyard had been raided. The Mayor wondered what on earth had happened while he was away; inquiring amongst the citizenry he was clued into the horror of the prior night, and accordingly ordered his guardsmen begin constructing fortifications for the village and scouting the nearby wilderness.

Some ways away the giant oni continued to cause trouble on the countryside.
