They called this place the Shining Realm. Everything in this realm seemed to have its own inner glow. Its as if the very air of this part of the
world was alive. Objects are clearer. Edges sharper. Vibrant. Even now the sky is a bright azure blue. The fields outside the castle walls are
emerald green, a sign that summer is in full swing. Peaceful.
Within the walls the courtyard sits in stark contrast to the beauty outside. The cobblestones are covered with the dismembered corpses of castle
guards. Blood is on everything adding a bright splash of color to a horrid scene of death. Carrion birds quickly arrived on scene. One in
particular squawked in anger as an armored warrior strode towards the castle's main building.
Breathing evenly, sword still grasped tightly in his right hand one would not think that he had just finished dispatching twenty highly trained
warriors. Only the blood on his armor betrayed that. He paused, swatting at a hungry insect and looked up at the castle's lone tower.
Was that a person looking down at him? He squinted, shading his eyes to get a better look. But, whatever was there before had gone. This moments
respite did not last however, for just at that time the large double doors leading to the great hall exploded with tremendous force.
"Sayent!" A deep voice bellowed from within. "How dare you invade my home!"
Sayent dove to the side as huge chunks of debris flew past him. One in particular struck his sword and sent it skittering across the ground. As his
back touched down he tumbled into a crouch. Left palm on the ground. Knees bent. Muscles tense, his eyes raised as a shadow fell over him.
"This is not your home Clx," Sayent spoke softly. "You know why I am here."
"I do," the demon chuckled softly. It's armored body plates shifted as it positioned itself for a quick blow to the downed warrior. "Your god
has no business here slave. And in that, neither do you. You traveled a long way to die."
As the demon was speaking Sayent had balled his right fist behind his foot. When the insectoid demon raised his massive hands above its head for a
killing blow he sprang into action. The blow caught the demon as he swung downward. Clx struck nothing but air. Sayent fared far better.
His armored fist connected solidly with Clx's lower mandible. A thunderous crack resounded. The huge demon was lifted many feet into the air.
Before he even landed Sayent had turned and walked away. As he bent to retrieve his sword he felt the air stir behind him. With a tight smile he
rolled quickly to one side as the demon's taloned foot slammed the ground where he once was.
"Foolish lawbringer!" The demon roared. "Never turn your back on a Chosen of Chaos!"
His mighty fist struck out at Sayent and clipped him on the shoulder. It sent ripples of pain through his body though his movements never slowed.
Sayent reversed his grip on his sword as he rolled with the blow. He brought the shining gold blade in a wicked arc that ended at the demon's right
knee. Black ichor sprayed and the demon roared. Sayent backed off a few feet giving himself a moment to recover.
"Let's end this Clx," Sayent said. "I have places to go." The demon roared again and rushed at him, talons outstretched.
"Brute force," he said as he bound from the demon's thigh to his shoulder. "How typical."
Sayent flipped over the demon to land behind his back. As he came down his sword scored a large tear in the demon' chitin covered back. More of the
creature's black blood spilled onto the ground. Clx spun to glare at Sayent as he stood a dozen feet away, sword point in the ground. A small
amused smile creased Sayent's face.
"There is more to my Lord's power than you think slave," the demon rumbled. "He will feast on your very essence and I will be there to watch."
"Your kind learn too slowly Clx," Sayent heafted his sword. "You cannot defeat me. To sound cliche. My God is better than yours. And , thus, so
With that he sprang forward golden sword flashing as blow after blow fell against the demon's armored skin. Clx struggled to land a blow of his own
but the Lawbringer was far to fast for him. After mere seconds a great amount of the demon's blood leaked from numerous wounds. Sayent was only
"Unlike you Clx, I serve a greater power by choice, " Sayent began to circle the demon who had dropped to one knee. "I choose to slay your kind
because there is no place in the world, or any, for such as you."
"You are wrong lawbringer," Clx breath wheezed. "Without Chaos there can be no Order for you to serve. You destroy us and you destroy yourself. I
beg no mercy if that is what you wait for. Send me back to where I came from, slave."
"I have better plans for you Clx," Sayent smiled. "For the countless deaths you have brought to this country. For the enslavement of those that
remained. And for the imprisonment of a select few for your amusement. I condemn you to a life of serving Order through servitude to ME!"
Sayent lept forward. The demon raised his arm to protect itself. It was sliced cleanly off, just below the elbow. Sayent spun and drove his blade
deep into the demon's throat the blade jutting out the back.
