Clar, the shadow warrior, standed tall from his victory, with his mind filled with bliss and glee from defeating his nemesis. His heart beatet strong, and he gasped for breathe from the previous battle. He raised his hands and gazed on his open palms with a satisfied, almost mad look in his eyes. Though he understood little of his triumpfh, his satisfaction from standing victor was too immense. "With these powers, i am unstoppable!" he thought. He reaised his hands into the air, and bursted in a victorious cry, echoing throughout the horizont.
As he stood there, caught up in this bliss - in his moment of victory - a violet aura slowly spread and wrapped around him, and a deep felt feeling of immense power filled his inner. The aura spread rapidly, and brightened up his surroundings - it looked like Clar was lit on fire. But this was no fire, and so he knew. It was his dark, shadowish powers which had awakened. Clar had become stronger than ever before! But -
In his intense satisfaction from his victory, and newly found powers, Clar was too obsessed and failed to realize which powers truly had awakened. Powers which had been sealed off within Clar. Powers of the depraving Dark Lord Behemoth!
"You fool! You have no idea of what you have awoken, Clar!" - a known voice shouted!
Clar turned his head and looked above his shoulder with a dark, violet burning glow in his eyes. It was his nemesis, IHTNC! After Clar had thrown him off the cliff, IHTNC had managed to grab on to the cliff wall, and with his remaining strength pull himself back up.
"Youuuuu!" - Clar hissed!
His voice was hoarse, and had a strange echoing sound to it. The powers within him got stronger by the second. IHTNC was barely standing, and his pains showed from his facial expression. He was shivering, and bleeding from his wounds. Blood dripped down from a bloodstained piece of bandage wrapped around his missing limb. IHTNC knew he could pass out any second - even die from his bloodloss, but he ignored those facts - he knew something much more important had to be taken care of - Clar had to be stopped!
"Clar - You're not well. You need treatment - immediately! You have no idea of what have awoken in you. Those powers are far beyond your control - you don't know what you're dealing wi--" - IHTNC's speach was interupted by a loud scream from Clar,
"Wraaaaaaaaah! Nonsens!!! - I am stronger than ever befooore. Youuu cannot stop meeeee..." - Clar's shadow aura lighted brighter than before, as an anger grew within him. Clar was ready explode.
IHTNC realized he was not able to make Clar listen. He grasped for his blade and took a solid grip around the shaft. He drew his blade swiftly, and held it up in front of him. Clar bend his head and stirred at IHTNC with a look filled with hatred, and his violet eyes were burning from this. Clar hissed loudly, and charged IHTNC. He Leaped into the air and pounced IHTNC. IHTNC jumped the the side, and swerved his sword against Clar. But he hit nothing but air. IHTNC realized this a split second too late, and Clar punched him in the back with a such power IHTNC flew through the air, and landed 5 metres away from Clar. Clar bursted into a hoarse laughter,
"Hahaha - you haaaave no idea of what you'rrrrrrre up againssssssst!" - Clar hissed.
IHTNC knocked his fist into the ground, and got in his feet swiftly. He was exhausted, and the pains from the strong blow was immense. IHTNC had not a single chance against Clar, and he knew it very well. IHTNC spoke once more,
"Clar! You need to listen to me. There's many things you don't know about. Many... Secrets which we've been hiding from you. Things are not what they seem. You're not--"
IHTNC was once again interrupted - but this time by a well placed punch in the chest, sending him another 5 metres through the air.
"I don't need to listen to yur nonsens anymore. Now you just need to shut up and take whats coming for you!" - Clar screamed!
Clar was furious, and the powers kept gaining energies - kept consuming his mind. As strong as Clar had become, as blind had he become aswell. His anger, and desire from these powers devoured his before so righteous mind. He was loosing himself bit by bit, and the will of the Dark Lord was speaking in his inner through these powers.
IHTNC tried, once more to get on his feet, but his body failed him. He had no more strenght left in him. His body was nearly completely depleted, but his mind failed to accept the fact that he was near his certain death. IHTNC's head was bend, and he could barely lift his eyes to look at Clar,
"Last chance - If you don't listen, Clar, i have no other choice but to take you by force! Give it up, and let me cleanse you from the evil prescence within you! - Or else!"
Clar bursted into an uncontrollable, contemptuous laughter. He Ignored all of IHTNC's words, and started walking slowly towards IHTNC. His body was getting, somewhat transparent as the shadow powers more and more revealed his true form. Clar approached IHTNC, and lifted his arm as he was prepared to finish off his nemesis. He grabbed IHTNC by the throat, and lifted him into the air, and IHTNC grabbed his arm instinctively. The violet, burning aura spread from the arm he held IHTNC with, and started wrapping around IHTNC. IHTNC gasped for breathe, as Clar tightened his hand around his throat. Clar's eyes burned strong, and he lifted his free arm into the air,
"I thought you were made of severe stuff. But you showed to be but an unworthy opponent. I've truly overvalued your powers!" Clar hissed. He swallowed some air, as his aura lit up and surrounded IHTNC. "You shoud've not returned. Now i'll consume your soul" - Clar continued. The shadow-aura wrapping IHTNC was about to display it's true entity as it flamed up. IHTNC screw up his eyes, and bursted out,
"Enoooooooooooooooooough!" - A blinding white, bright light shot out from IHTHC, and like the impact from a huge explosion, Clar flew through the air, and smashed into a piege of rock sticking up from the ground. He jumped on his feet, and gazed at IHTNC, wrapped in this bright light. He understood nothing.
IHTNC hang in the air, floating around in a mysterious light bubble. Clar could barely spot IHTNC from the blinding light - only a shade within. He moaned from the happenings, as he stirred at IHTNC. "That the f***" - Clar shouted. The entity within the light bubble was INTHC. He was evolving - taking his true form. Forbidden was this action, but IHTNC knew the punishment from his crime was far less than what could happen if Clar was allowed to roam free. He did what he felt inevitable. Clar contemplated the shade, as it took it's unhuman form. The arm which Clar cut off grew back out, and wings shot out from IHTNC's back. Clar's was stunned from what he now witnessed. The shade stretched it's body and wings, and the light bubble ended in a huge light-flash. Intense beam's of light shot out and blinded Clars sight. The light subsided, and revealed a strange being. The true form of IHTNC-
Above the grounds where Clar nearly had finished off his helpless foe, a being of light now hovered in the air. It was wrapped in a golden aura, and it was dressed in a think golden plate armor, covered in black runic letters. His head was hidden in a white hood with golden runic letters written across the selvage, and only white glowing eyes were to spot underneath the cowl. From his regrown hand, he held an enormous sword. Straight, with gold-glowing runic inscriptions along the middle. IHTNC was no man, nor were he a monster. IHTNC was an entity of light, a creature of the high heavens - an angel!
He had been banished from the high heavens eons ago by the high heavens. This was his punishment from disobeying his code. He was limited to the strenghts of a human being, and was condemned to sere his sentence like this for two thousand years. Now, he had, once again shown disobedience towards his mentors. But he was left without a choice. He had heard his call, and he knew what was required of him - the former Clar had to be stopped. And his human form were unsubstantial as Clar was "enriched" by his dark powers.
IHTNC spoke with a clear voice, resounding throughout the nocturnal horizont,
"Clar - i am the Guardian of light, angel and servant of the high heavens. I was banished to earth eons ago for a violation against the code of light. All though, i've continuous loyal to the high order of the light. And now the light is, once more threatened by the presence of the Lord Of Despair. An entity that has awakened within thy. It gives one the powers of the dark itself, and one become mixture of dark and evil. Thy has been given a piece of this darkness in the form of your shadow powers. But many before you failed to understand what lies within these powers, and those had suffered the consequences. Those souls fates were corrupted and turned into mindless servants of Behemoth - The Dark Lord. Just as it consumed your brother! Let not this be your fate aswell."
Clar, still confused from all this had a hard time speaking any words. He was witness to what no man had ever before seen. But he kept ignoring IHTNC's words, and hid his insecureness towards standing victor over this being behind another outburst of laughter,
"Ha, ha, ha! You speak nonsens, freak! Such a shining armor - but i doubt it'll shine that bright when i wrap it in my shadows and choke your very light! Prepare yourself, Guardian of light - Clar, the master of shadows has only just begun!"
