- The falls, being a relaxing setting for all whom come. Mist rising and falling almost as if the falls was breathing. Many scents and sounds, all soothing and exotic swirl around. As light hits the falling waters, it reflects small rainbows in the mist, also causes the water to look blue or purple. A wonderful place to get away and relax.
Death moves slowly along a long forgotten path one he had tread many times in the old kingdom when he was once king here. His eyes shine lightly as he moves through the tall grass and trees that surrounded the area. He then lightly looks about and sees a darkness form within the waterfalls area and he tilts his head slightly.
It was something new and he felt it to be a bit strange to him as if the darkness was evil or contained something or someone of power within it. Death softly moves from the trees and then looks to a water fall and shakes his head slightly as he was getting to old for fights but would never admit it to anyone including himself.
Death softly looks out at the darkness and controls his desire to use his powers as he studies the darkness a bit more. He smiles as he feels the old darkness within himself stir at the feel of the darkness that is within the waterfalls.
Death lightly moves from the trees more and takes flight to the top of a nearby waterfall to survey the area better. His eyes staying on the darkness and wondering who or what was causing it.
Lily like Evan noticed the two others down by the water, she felt his darkness engulfing them.
She listened and smiled "I am not in love with u. I mean I do like and value your freindship. I hope it will become a perminate, if you would like to be my friend that is. I know what love is I've had it. I've always new how to sence the good in people, who to trust and not to trust, of course I've been wrong and I hope in my heart," her smile quivered as a tear slipped out from fear. "That Dimitri is not one of them. I just trust you."
Lilyana wiped the tear from her cheek with her free hand. The masked re-appeared on his face and this time she noticed the red disign. When he let her hand go, and finished, explaining who else he had created masks for.
The hair on the back of her neck stood up, her eyes began to shine silver and her teeth grew. A serious expression fell onto her face, Lilyana removed her fathers bow from her back and knocked an arrow. Even though the mask called to her, the smell of something reached her nose more. Lily's eyes wandered the falls trying to figure out who or what is giving her the creeps.
"My favorite color is sunset Orange. I am apart of the Cumatra". A light growl exscaped from her, Lilyana wanted to raise her sheild but did not want to ruin the cover Evan had created. But Lilyana was ready to for a fight if it happened.
Evan smiled at her and slammed the mask onto her face. His dark eyes going emerald as he felt her darkness combine with his. She felt as if she was going to go mad. Screams filled her ears as the thoughts that Evan always had to deal with flowed into her head. She saw through his eyes as he gutted and killed millions of men and women and even children when he went mad once before. He had slaughtered creatures that she couldn't even recognize. She slowly realized that they were extinct. The man before her seemed to be pure evil even though he had part angel inside of him. As the screams stopped her ears bled lightly and she sat there with the orange stripped mask on her face. He watched calmly as the mask bonded with her and she bonded with Evan through the pain he has to endure every second. Those memories were his. She was seeing what he had done and what he had to live with when he went mad. "You may trust me but always remember this is what happens if you don't use your mask to control your darkness anymore. The mask is yours. Use it wisely." Evan smiled as he sensed the dark presence outside of his sphere of darkness. He knew others didn't notice it but he also knew a dark and powerful being would. The barrier was taken down as Evans emerald eyes met with deaths cold eyes. He chuckled and waved. "Come on over... It has been a long long time. We should talk. I remember you weren't to fond of Lucifer when he first arrived." Evan looked around and saw he was alone... it was odd. "You... You aren't royalty anymore." Evan opened a portal in front of death so he could come to them without having to waste energy. "You...Are you ok? What happened? It's strange to see you like this." Evan wasn't sure if Death had remembered him. He only had met Death a few times and they weren't pleasant. Evan never held grudges and wasn't going to attack death until he attacked Evan. "You and I are getting old. Why not go out with a bang eh?" Evan waited to see if Death would follow the portal and come to them. He couldn't wait to tell his plans again. He wanted Death to know that they could rise again. As long as their old bodies didn't fall apart in the process.
Death lightly looks at the portal and steps into it to travel down and speak with Evan. "Yes we have met before and it was a long time ago. I have made plans of my own to live within this kingdom and to as you say go out with a bang." Death then softly teps closer and looks at the girl with the new mask on and chuckles lightly. He then tilts his head slightly and looks back to Evan "It seems your new friend is afraid of me and with good reason too. For you know who and what i am i have not lost any of my powers just my royalty rank."
Death then stands up and steps back to look at Evan closer "So what is your grand plan this time?" As he then lightly opens his hand and a goblet of absinthe appears in his hand.
"I have never really been fond of Lucifer but i reapect the mans power at current time." Death then takes a drink from his goblet and lets the power of his radiate from his body.
Evan smiles lightly glad the being seemed interested enough. "I've never liked Lucifer. He has done some sick shit to me and even worse yet now he is married to Lucina. Not that good of a choice for her in my opinion. I have Lucifers blood within me Death. I have his power. He doesn't like me and when he learns I am in the Kingdom, if he hasn't already I will be hunted down like an animal and exterminated. However..." Evan looked at his mask and looked at the new one he made for the girl. "The Knights are back. I'm forming a new group. Even thou they won't be protecting the Kingdom any longer they will be here. I plan on taking control back from the Demons and putting it to Vampires like it rightfully deserves to be placed." Evan looks to Death as he drinks. He smiles and relaxes just glad that Death is amused. He hasn't seen such a powerful being in a long time. The last he saw was Lucina and even she was weak at times. Why would she need him in the first place? "I know you are not of Royalty but you could be again with the new order. Things will be just the way they used to be here. No demons running the place and only Vampires in control once again. This isn't the Vampire Kingdom anymore. It is run by demons." Evan spits to the ground in disgust. "I know you want to be back with power. I know you Miss being in control. I know you miss Chaos and death. Join me and their will be more then you can Imagine. I'm bringing chaos back to this world just like the Black Hand did to the Knights. The knights will bring it to the demons." Evan looks to Death as his mask appears on his face once more. The mask exploding dark power around them. It was stronger then Death had last seen because of the new mask that was just created. It seemed much stronger even thou it was made for a new vampire. "There is one thing Lucifer doesn't know... The mask that was created for Lucina is still in her throne room in her room. The same room that they both sleep. It feeds from her at Night. He would be fighting his wifes power along with mine and my few friends. I know you won't join the Cumatra but you could join the Knights." Evans shirt burned off and revealed the tattoo of the Knights that soon blackened once more and showed more power. "The Knights wore these tattoos as beacons. We could feel each other. We could feed from strength. It is made from the same magic as the masks only weaker. We are all one even in Death. Even those you have taken you may have some of their power but there is some power you can never take from the dead."
Llilyana had fell to her knees from the memories and the mask. But kept in mind what Evan had said to her. Her arrow was stuck in the dirt in a 45degree angle on her right and her fathers bow was flat on its side on her left. Lily smiled and squealed with delight. She put her weapon away and listened to the two talk as she circled Death like a curious cat. She removed her white mask stripped with a sunset orange and poked at death's arm hoping he would nott be annoyed.
"Is this real or am I dreaming?" She gave Evan a excited cats grinned. "I'm meeting Death. This is an awsome night." She giggled and grin stopping on Death's left side. I do appologize for drawing my weapon on you Sir Death, a pleasure to meet you. I am Lilyana." She bowed respectfully.
So much curiosity filled her but she remained silent knowing she had already been rude enough.
Death smiles a bit as he looks to Lilyana and bows his head back to her with respect. He then winks at her and lightly chuckles as he listened to her." Yes I am that Death my dear Lilyana and I take no offense at having your weapon drawn on me. I have a way of scaring people when I show up."
Death then looks to Evan " you are right as some power can not be taken even when one dies." Death then tilts his head slightly "what of these knights you are speaking of? If I decide to help you it will be upon my wish to get even with Lucifer as I may not like him but I do respect the power he welds. Plus I am a follower of Lucinas as well so I would need to work in secret with your plans."
As Death then lightly reaches out and touches Lilyana on the cheek with a gentle caress.
He then looks back to Evan "tell me more of your plans to take back the kingdom from the demons."
"Please, Sir Death. You may call me Lily if you wish" Lilyana said.
She was pleased when Death did not get angry with her, Dimitri was right. He told her if anyone deserved respect it would be Death and when Death caressed her face, her memories shot back to Dimitri touching her cheek that way. She touch the hand print with her finger tips with an adoring smile.
A question grew in her mind for Death. But she would wait till the right moment. She tucked her dark, beautiful, red hair behind her ear and waited.
Evan eyes flashed black when death touched her cheek. He felt as if a small rush of power surged into him. He coughed and gagged chuckling. "God Death if only you were a Cumatra. I'd be unstoppable." He smiles to him jokingly and relaxes. One did not have to be a Cumatra to be a Knight only the Tattoo would symbol who was who. "My plan is simple. Conquer. I will be hunted down by Lucifer soon. He will send his demons after me but I shall not be alone. My allies will fight with me. They will mainly be minor brawls between a few of the opposing or even just single fights but then I know once Lucifer is truly sick of me he will attack all out with himself and his demons. Once the battle is over. Who ever loses loses their ability to rule. That is the way of war. Whoever loses either dies or concedes. If I die the revolution will be over. If Lucifer dies..." His eyes go white a quick second his light within him panicking at the thought of Luci. What would she say if he ended up killing the man she loved so dearly. "Or...Concedes like I hope he does then we the Knights take back our place in the castle. It is still here somewhere. I could see it from Luci's..." He trails off not wanting to show how personal he was with Lucina. "The Queens throne room." He lied clearly. "It's a few miles from here. Once we win I will rebuild the castle by hand and magic if I need to. We will be the rulers of this kingdom again. The protectors and no one shall tear down Vampire Kingdom but those who will tear down the Knights. The demons won't know what hit them... Their are many of them but I know the young will side with me." His eyes flashed a deep black. His mask was off but his power was affecting him clearly. Something was wrong but not enough to cause to large of a stir. "We can claim this land again. For the Vampires not the Demons who now take care of this world."
When the man did not reply back lacey simply shrugged it off with a yawn. She was getting rather bored by herself there. She climber out of the water and shook herself dry and left the waterfall.
Ooc: sorry if short I'm on cell
Occ: my phones going down tomorrow. So I will not be able to post for a while, I do not know how long I will be.
Lilyana looked to the right at the forest, she wanted to stay but a mysterious wind called to her. Lily wanted to stay and ask death questions, learn about her powers. Evan's words of warning echoed in her head she will have to learned when to use the mask while she is away.
Sarrow filled Lily's heart. She wished to stay, things were beginning for her. But her urge to go became great,
She turned back to the gentalmen with a bubbly smile.
"Thank you Evan for allowing me to join you." She squealed and hugged him with out his permission. " I will see you soon"
Then turned to death " Sir Death it was an honor to meet you." Lily bowed respectfully. "When we meet again I would love to talk and ask you questions. If you do not mind."
Her eyes turn a bright silver and with her power of wind. Lily stepped to her right and vanished in a blink of an eye.
Death softly smiles at Lily as she wishes to ask more questions and he would answer them for her if he could. He then watches as she disappears to go and see if she could become great within the kingdom. Death looks to Evan as he listens to him and lightly remembers the knights. He also knows how the man hates demons and that Evan was still linked to Lucina in a way.
"So you wish to fight with demons and Lucifer as well. I would suggest making the battles small ones at first just to see how determinded the demons are in protecting the kingdom. Then every so often lauch an attack against Lucifer while he is alone as he is more powerful with his demons around him."
Death then tilts his head and chuckles " I know the knights castle was torn down shortly after they seemed to disappear. But if you rebuild it make it one that accepts those who freely ask for help." He then looks closer at Evan and knows the man is in love with the queen in his own way.
Evan looked over to Death and smiled lightly looking down. "I wish I would attack him all out when he is alone but, I just can't do that. Even though he made me go through hell and back literally. Even i he sends gangs of demons against me. I can't gang up on somebody even if that is the only way we will be victorious. I'll find another way." Evan looked down as Death started to see how much he cares about Lucina. He listened to him explain about the castle and nodded. "I know the Castle is gone but that would be an easy target considering everyone knows where it is. The theater is where you can find us stationed now. It may seem like a normal appearance of the theater but all the props are actual weapons. Actors? They are my army. I was the first person to sing there. They respect me there and stand beside me." Evan smiled to Death and took a deep breath ready to tell him. "Luci...Queen Lucina and I are close. We always have been since I first came to the area. I stepped into her throne room and sat on her throne. Everyone was furious but her. She smiled. She didn't like being treated like royalty and that's the reason why we became so close. She even became a Cumatra. She rarely uses her mask but it is always attached to her. I took her kids in as my own and trained them before I left. Her son and daughter both were trained in elements by me. The more complicated ones anyway. They knew many of the basics. She is family to me. I am her protector. It's hard for me to fight against the Kingdom but I know she will understand." He sighed and looked to Death. Evans eyes flashed black as his body shifted. The mask appeared on his face. "Excuse me. I am currently speaking with Lucinas son. I can only be in so many places at once. This will take the place of me. I hope you don't mind not having my complete attention." The clone smirks as the mask cackles. The clone stared at Death and cocked it's head looking as if it would lash out. Evan was in control but it wouldn't seem it.

OOC: both dragons look like this, since they are twin dragons.
Calypso and Cyrus had made sure to keep themselves above the clouds, not wishing to scare anyone as they had been in dragon form, but they were low enough for Lilyana to see of what was on the ground below. Once coming to the waterfalls, Calypso began a slow circular descent, moving closer to the land, and then feeling an odd darkness in the air. Thinking that it was out of place, she started to head towards it, but stayed far enough away from it as well, not wishing Lilyana to come to harm should she not wish to be near it. Managing to land near the top of the largest waterfall in the area, Calypso waited patiently for Lilyana, Cyrus already on the ground and in his human form, nearing his twin sister as he came to help Lilyana should she need any aid to climb off of his sister's back. Cyrus looked around the area, and for the moment did not notice anything out of the ordinary other than a feeling of darkness, but looks could always be deceiving, for he had known that quite well.
Lilyana smiled as they flew threw the sky, giggling with joy here and there as the wind blew threw her red hair. She looked down admiring the painting of life from a different point of veiw. The waterfall branching out in a Y shape, when Calypso landed Lily pouted.
"Awww," Lily said like a kid being told they can not go outsided to play anymore.
She climbed down, taking Cyrus's help she stood inbetween Calypso and Cyrus. She scanned the waterfall ground and pointed to the location over looking the water.
"There that was where he was. I think they are still there." Her eyes shined silver for a second. She would protect the twins no matter the cost.
Evan having finished his talk with Zess took control of the clone body once more and was back where he belonged. The dark force seeming even more powerful then before. He watched his new apprentice walk over to the two beings that were once dragons. He smiled lightly but didn't go towards them. He was getting tired even though there was much to be done. He decided to let Lilyana have her fun as they were at the top of the falls Evan stripped down to his underwear and dove into the cool refreshing water. He smiled lightly and relaxed his wings cracking from his back and releasing themselves. The darkness in the area disappearing without a trace as Evan swam around what he called home relaxing for the first time in a very long time. His mask nowhere to be found and his bright white light coming from the bottom of the falls.
fresh to the kingdom V wonders through the woodland areas to asses the strategic value of each and every area he could find. The first he comes to is this magnificent waterfall. unfortunately for him there are others in and or near the water.
wishing to remain unseen V ghosts between the trees remembering what was drilled into his head for so long, "people will see what the expect to see."
when he reaches the third set of trees back he climbs to the top of the closest tree so that he may get a closer look at who he has come upon.
wonder why that man felt the need to jump from a perfectly good cliff? he thinks when the man resurfaces.

Calypso chuckled a little in her dragon form as she looked about from the cliff that she was on, seeing that it was a view, but not much of one in comparison to the view from the mountains of their home. She had noted of the one that had come into the area, and had looked at them even. Calypso had asked Lilyana suddenly, "There is one that has looked over here... I assume that you know that male somehow...that perhaps he is the one that you spoke of earlier." She kept her eyes trained on him a moment, but then after he had moved down into the water, not regarding them anymore, she had taken notice of another one watching the one that had seen them, someone that seemed cloaked entirely, but it being day, was able to be seen because of wearing black while the person had been within green treetops. Keeping silent of the other one, it seeming like he hadn't wanted to be seen, Calypso only moved herself to transform from her dragon form to her human form, and looked at the spot that Lilyana had pointed out. Cyrus watched Calypso, and knew that she wanted to immediately go in there. "Well, let us venture forth to see of if they are both within there, or at the least of if the one that we are looking for is within there. We are not ones that are fighters, and so will only be able to deliver a message. If anyone attempts to hurt us, we can transform into our dragon forms, for our scales are like armor, and can take quite the hit. If the space is too small though, we wouldn't want to risk you, our dear friend." Cyrus smiled, and offered a hand to Lilyana. "So, shall we go then and deliver this message?"
watching from his perch withing the tree and seeing the dragons become humans, V quickly climbs down and blends farther into the shadows to await the passage of the interesting creatures. in his efforts to remain unseen by the man who jumped into the water he thought he had been seen in the tree.
i curse myself for not thinking of coming better prepared for daylight recon. He thought while calming his breathing and stilling his heart. His hand fell to the hilt of his sword. "i will not be caught unawares this time" he spoke softly to his weapon.
at his small and very dry jest he chuckles softly.
Lilyana nodded at Calypso's question "Yes that is Evan, my trainer."
She watched Evan swim, the light shining in the pool and grinned at the beauty. When something caught her eye a shadow. In the day time?
When Calypso stated the plan. Lily nodded, "ok, let's get the message done then."
In a blink of an eye Lilyana was already at the location and waited for the twins. When she saw him, he stood in the pathway. A gentlamen with his hand on the hilt of his sword stood in the shadows. For some reason, Lily had a feeling she should not be seeing the man but she did, like it was clear as day. Is this because Evan made her a Cumatra? Her eyes flashed silver again as she waited for the twins to get to her location. Distracting herself from the man Lily watch Evan swim.

Calypso went first before Cyrus, and when she had landed next to Lilyana, she said to her, "It is best to not worry of those that wish not to be known to us. There are those that have nothing to do with us, and though I had noticed him as well, he seems like he does not wish to be found, and so we should not bother with him." She only slightly bowed towards the gentleman that had been there, showing no intent of fight or harm, and only turned away from him, asking Lilyana, "So the swirling darkness that lies just before us is the path that is set for us?" Cyrus came behind her, and right when Calypso was about to enter it, Cyrus stopped her. Cyrus spoke aloud, "We do not know of what lies within. We of course trust our new friend, but what of the other, of Evan? What would he have done as soon as she left? What of Death if he is there alone or has something there with him? Will we be able to shift into dragon form should we need to protect Lilyana and ourselves should Death try anything as well? These are things to ask yourself before stepping into that hole, Calypso." Calypso looked to her brother, then paused in going in. He was right, and waited patiently for Lilyana and him to go in with her, so that they could all go in at once.
relaxing to stand at his full height V steps from his shadows wondering quietly how it was that these people were able to see him. "miss, may i ask how you were able to see me so clearly? i have been trained for years to not been seen and one with your eye for details may be able to assist me in furthering my knowledge." he bowed deeply in deference to the lady, attempting to show her the most respect he knew how.

Calypso looked at the male that had been there, seeing that he had come forth from the trees, and now was coming to them, and speaking to them as well. She wondered of which of them he was speaking to, and if he had been speaking to her, then the answer was a little simpler than it would have been for Lilyana. "Sir, if you are speaking to me, then know it is because I am a dragon. I have always been able to see through many things within my life span. It is true though I am not able to see through everything, because I am still young, but perhaps the first lesson might be to not wear clothing that shows yourself so easily within a forest..." She looked at his black leather outfit. "You would look like shadows, this is true, but the shadows still have color, the color being the color that is around. The shadow of a tree, for instance. If the ground is green, then the shadow will only be a darker green, but not black. You will still be seen. Blending in is more than just using color, but of using one's ability to move downwind of things so they cannot smell you, of hiding behind trees and the like so that one cannot see you, and being able to move about without notice if you wear the right garb, and even painting yourself helps as well. Cyrus and I have seen once of a sun dragon using the very light itself to hide within, and thought that it was a great feat until he showed us how he did it. Then I thought it was actually stupid." Cyrus slightly hit Calypso on the head, and shook his head. Cyrus then said to the man that was there, "I had not seen you until you came from the trees to make yourself known, so know that you are at least good enough to hide from one dragon." He smiled.
She listened to Calypso, when Cyrus commented about the path Lilyana shrugged, "I guess so", she hoped they wouldn't get mad. She is a new vamp after all. " and don't worry I have learned how to us my power of wind to form a shield. It is also how I move so quickly it speed not teleportation. If you need me to knock an arrow let me know."
She turned and watch with the twins to see the shadowman approach them speaking. She listened to Calypso explaination and giggle as the family love tap was presented. She approached the Shadowman.
"Maybe, mine is the same as my freinds reasoning. But honestly I do not know" she gave the shadowman a good smile.
Drawing back a bit farther into the hood of his cloak V nodds slightly considering the ancient creatures words. “ yes , i can see you are correct. i will have to change how i remain unseen. my training in stealth did take place in deep caverns while hunting some very unsavory people.“ V bows deeply to the dragons and wonders where he might find more suitable clothing. “ dragon, do you know of a place i can get supplies? also you and your friends may call me V or any other name you see fit.“ Feeling he had made it clear he meant no harm to them or the woman they seemed so protective of V removed his hood and pushed his cloak off his shoulders to reveal himself completely.
“ I am also willing to offer my skills to aid you.“
Evan laid in the water in his angel form listening to the trio speak and chuckled. He had noticed the man right when he appeared. He knew Lily would sense him quickly as well. More sense then sight of him. He relaxed in the water and listened wondering how his own Cumatra Dragon was doing. He knew he would come once the others left. Many people were afraid of him. Even though the dragon was monstrous and a killer it had a warm heart and wouldn't attack unless provoked. Evan closed his eyes and relaxed. He listened to the man offer his services and his ears perked up. His wings disappearing and his mask quickly appearing next to him. The mask looked towards Evan with a cackle as Evan smiled. He swam to the edge and got out of the water his clothes appearing on his body as a large abundance of equipment appeared next to him. Anything that the man would need was now lying in the open next to Evan. The question was whether or not the man would come to him or leave to find other goods.
V, seeing the man who carelessly jumped from a perfectly good cliff emerge from the water, bid the dragons and their companion to allow him to greet another being who had clearly seen him now. “You there. I am curious to find out why you have jumped from that cliff.“ V bowed stiffly to the man as he drew near, sensing that he was not all he appeared to be. “ I will never get used to this land where no one is what they seem to be.“ he mumbled to himself as he stood to his full height again.
Evan chuckled and smiled appearing to be a normal human at the moment. "It's a nice swim. You said you needed things?" Evan looked at the man with helpful eyes. "Take a gander and tell me if there is anything you like within this stash." Evan laid on the ground looking at V as the pile of armor clothing weapons and other odds and ends laid around him. "You said you have certain talents and services?" He closed his eyes speaking to the air but obviously talking to V. "What are they if I might ask you, V." Evan smirked as he said his name. V knew it was impossible for him to be able to hear them from down here. He knew for sure now he wasn't just a normal human and he also knew that he may be more powerful then he could imagine. Evan looked up to the sky when V turned his back for a split second Evans mask appeared in his hand. He began flipping his mask in the air as if he was bored. He was obviously doing it on purpose for some reason.
Hearing the twirling sound V spun back quicker thn the human eye can see. “What it that od item u have there?“ V was clearly avoiding revealing what his skillset was. “I my proffession we do not tell any what we are able to do for they may become the target in the blinl of an eye. Now to answer your offer of supplies, i have learbed the hard way not to take without asking the price, name yours.“ V smiled to himself feeling that this creature wanted something from him, now he just had to find out what that may be.
OOC: I am at work so it may ake me a minute to respond.
Evan looked at the man as the mask disappeared. "Just my own little secret. You tell me yours and I'll tell you mine.." Evan smiled to the man chuckling as he talked about him being a possible target. "My dear boy you wouldn't know what to do. You may as well just tell me what they are. Choose what you like and then i'll give you a price." Evan was actually going to let the boy not pay and just give him some information. V however of course didn't know this. Evan just watched him not in case he turned on him or if he ran with his things. He could always create more in the blink of an eye. He closed his eyes and waited for the mans response. Evan breathed slowly and listened as he walked around his things and searched.
