Capheron's Realm [Plot]

Capheron is one of a group of Seven Demon lords, this is his realm, a barren landscape with few notable features.
Obscurejones

The Toymaker helpfully deposits Al here.  Al looks around.
Metakirb

He's in a very barren landscape, there're lesser demon corpses all around him.
Obscurejones

He pokes a few of the corpses.  Makes sure Kelri's not amongst them.
Metakirb

She's not, every single corpse is well and truely a corpse.
Obscurejones

He looks for the corpse maker.
Metakirb

Nowhere to be seen, however there does appear to be a trail of corpses.
Obscurejones

He follows the trail.
Metakirb

It leads to a bloody looking tree, with someone leaning against the base of it.
Obscurejones

He glances at the leaner.
Metakirb

It may look something like kelri.
Obscurejones

That you?
Metakirb

No response.
Obscurejones

He frowns and his eyes check if it's her.
Metakirb

It very much looks like her.
Obscurejones

He uses a little of the Crystal Guardians power to heal whoever it is.
Metakirb

No reaction.
Obscurejones

He frowns.  Tries tapping it with a sword edge.
Metakirb

As he moves towards the figure he'll trigger a magically concealed trap, which causes a spike to shoot out of the ground at him.
Obscurejones

What's the spike made of?
Metakirb

Demon bone.
Obscurejones

He shifts to metal and balances on the spike.
Metakirb

The spike slowly retracts.
Obscurejones

He stays metal and keeps walking towards the body.
Metakirb

More spikes trigger until he reaches it.
Obscurejones

He taps it with the flat of his sword.
Metakirb

As he does it changes into another demon corpse, and a scythe gets swung at his head.
Obscurejones

He frowns and ducks, trying to roll backwards.
Metakirb

There's someone flying just off the ground behind him, covered entirely in armor made from Demon bones and carrying a scythe.
Obscurejones

And you would be?
Metakirb

The person doesn't say anything, hovering back slightly.
Obscurejones

He frowns.  Glances back at the corpse.
Metakirb

Just another demon.
Obscurejones

He frowns at the flying figure.  Tries to poke it with the sword.
(deadtime)
Metakirb

The figure tries to knock the sword away with the scythe.
Obscurejones

He pulls the sword back.
Kelri?
Metakirb

You're not him, drop the act.
Obscurejones

Look if it's you could we hurry up the disbelief on both sides? I left the baby with Kitty.
Metakirb

You're not the first one to say that.

She raises her scythe.
Obscurejones

I left the baby with Kitty and we haven't named her yet.  Our marriage vows were about holding your hand.
Metakirb

Al...

She flies closer, lowering her scythe.
Obscurejones

He stay metal.
You'll excuse the skin.  Lot's of spiky things around here.
He lowers his sword.
Metakirb

My traps, for them.

She gestures the corpses.

They've been after me for about a week.
Obscurejones

He frowns.
You've only been gone about a day.
Metakirb

Maybe back home. It's been about nine days for me since I got here. I haven't even found one of them yet, and all seven are sending lessers after me.
Obscurejones

He thinks for a moment.
Demon lords?
Metakirb

She nods.

Seven, all after my soul. A stupid bargain I made a long time ago.
Obscurejones

Bargains are never a good idea.
Irony!
Metakirb

You wouldn't be here without bargains.
Obscurejones

Huh?
He freezes up.
Cut that out.  Now do you want help getting out?
Metakirb

All seven need killing before I can leave.

She takes her helmet off, revealing her hair has grown quite a bit in nine days.

He doesn't know, does he?
Obscurejones

He knows he works for me.  He thinks it's in exchange for my protection of your daughter.  He is unaware that you bargained or that he is entirely a construct.
Metakirb

I see...

She glances up.
Obscurejones

He glances as well.
Metakirb

There's a faint trail across the sky, leading south.

Finally, a trail.

She starts flying south.
Obscurejones

The glow in Al's eyes fades and he starts running after her.
Metakirb

She slows down as a large horde of lesser demons comes into view.
Obscurejones

Al frowns and unleashes a few blasts of the red guardians energy towards the demons.
Metakirb

Alot of them die. The rest keep moving towards them.
Obscurejones

He draws his sword and revolver and fires with abandon into the oncoming demons.
Metakirb

Kelri starts cutting at the ones that get close to her. It isn't too long before the horde is dead.
Obscurejones

Al keeps following the trail.
Metakirb

As does Kelri, eventually a figure comes into sight, more humanoid than the other Demons that have been attacking Kelri sofar.
Obscurejones

Al glances over the figure as he walks towards them.
Metakirb

It appears to be a demon in a rather fancy suit.
Obscurejones

Nice suit.
Metakirb

He turns to face them.

So this is the man? My dear Kelri I thought you had more taste.
Obscurejones

Now, that's just hurtful.
Metakirb

He is an Elf. Such exotic beauty as yours deserves more.

You've not changed in the slightest.

She raises her scythe.
Obscurejones

An elf?  Why does everyone assume I'm an elf?
He readies his sword.
Metakirb

As hasty as usual. A shame I must harm this body of yours, but once your soul is mine...

A rapier appears in his hand.
Obscurejones

Al spits a blast of the red guardians energy towards the demon.
Metakirb

He vanishes and appears again above Kelri, dropping a kick at her head.
Obscurejones

Al fires the revolver at him.
Metakirb

the shot catches his cheek, and the kick connects to Kelri's head, dropping her to the floor.
Obscurejones

Al fires and charges forward to swing at the demon lord.
Metakirb

He ducks the shot and tries to stab at Al.
Obscurejones

Al finds out if demons can cut through metal and shifts as he swings.
Metakirb

The rapier bounces off and the demon vanishes again, appearing a little ways off.
Obscurejones

Al waves to him.  Fires at him.
Metakirb

He ducks it, and starts running a hand over his rapier.
Obscurejones

Al starts walking towards him, somewhat nonchalantly.
Metakirb

Kelri's back up and flying towards him. The rapier begins to glow white hot.
Obscurejones

Al breaks into a run, swapping his longsword and gun for his hatchets.
Metakirb

He swings the rapier at Al again.
Obscurejones

Al tries to duck and chop both hatchets at the demon's stomach.
Metakirb

They connect, he falls to the floor, clutching his stomach.
Obscurejones

Al swings at his neck with one axe and at his bits with the other.
Metakirb

Kelri stops him.

Let me kill him.
Obscurejones

He shrugs and pulls back.
Metakirb

She puts her scythe at his neck.
Obscurejones

Al waits.
Metakirb

/you don't want her doing this. With my power's she'll go beserk...
Obscurejones

Al shrugs again.
She's gone berserk before.  We tend to work it out.
Metakirb

Kelri cuts his throat.
Obscurejones

Al waits to see if she goes berserk.
Metakirb

Well there's a black trail of energy wrapping round her from the body.
Obscurejones

He frowns and switches to his longsword again.
Metakirb

It fully engulfs her, before dispersing, her wings longer than before.
Obscurejones

How do you feel?
