...because aside from a character Burgs created and lost interest in, we have no other Inquisitors.

 

Sorry, there's only so long I can stay interested in a character I haven't used. Ideas come and go for me.

On that note, I'm gonna need to review my Templar and see if I can still roll him well.

I'll live, especially with some kind of summary to help write some kind of epilogue. ^^

(I also feel you, on behalf of attempting something big like that and just not being able to pull it off. At least you tried! ^^ )

Korvarl finally stepped forward as the abominable demon was banished, though his eyes remained warily set on Caiden. They didn’t know what kind of demon he was, and apparently the other had been trying to manipulate them. Granted… maybe this was some kind of weird illusion to trick them into fighting each other. Or… something. The dwarf groaned, his head starting to ache. Gods damn this ‘adventure’ and all the ills it had brought them.

 

"All yours" Allya told him after ensuring the demon was really gone, stepping back and gesturing at the now-vacant summoning circle.

 

Silvershield nodded, stepping up to the circle and looking through the book, looking for the most potent - or at least the most plausible - celestial he could try to summon. On that note, which god was likely to take up their cause the most? Aw hells…

 

He took in the surrounding groups, taking a wild guess at their faiths. They did have a big ol’ warrior woman, one who undoubtedly praised the Aesir or Vanir. Same with the elf ladies and Elnira, too. Maybe that blonde Venator as well, Age-what’s-his-face. Besides them, though… Ah whatever, we outnumber ‘em. He decided with a shrug. Turning his full attention to the book, he wondered if a valkyrie or something of the sort would come to their aid. That’ll be something to tell the kids…

 

“Well, let’s see if this works.” He muttered - mostly to himself - before getting to work.

Percula stayed close to Caid - as she was wont to do - while Garandros and Agethar closed in. Oh boy…

 

Agethar turned out to be the more accepting of the two, reprimanding Garadros when the gruff man asked what had happened. Voros answered regardless.

 

"Some kind of demonic mutations," Caiden replied to Garandros. "From cursed obsidian... I can explain everything I know about it once we're out of this place," he finished for the both of them, though it was clear he wasn't too keen on doing that. Percula rested a hand on his shoulder to try easing his mood. It’s gonna be okay, Caid...

 

"For now, just trust me. Although I know it might not be easy to do."

 

“...If it’s any help,” Percula added, slipping in between Caiden and the other two. This did little more than accentuate how much smaller she was than him, and how bad she was at taking attention from Voros; much less when he was mutated like this. “I’ve been with him for…” She paused, realizing she hadn’t exactly kept track. “...a long while,” she finally settled with a sheepish grin, “and he hasn’t changed a bit. At least, not thanks to… uh, this.” Saffron clarified, poking a nearby tentacle. She resisted snickering at its reaction, trying to remember that normal people would be freaked out by all the demonic protrusions that Caid gained in this form, rather than amused.

Sorry, I'll see if I can get something together today, but I've been just a little preoccupied by real life.

Percula had been expecting violence… but she hadn’t been expecting violence against anyone other than Caiden. It seemed the group trusted him far more than the elf who could speak fluent demonic.

 

Then again, that did make perfect sense.

 

Granted, enough people targeted Caid with threats to leave Saffron bristling protectively, and it was all she could do to stop herself from simply sealing herself and him in a bubble of frost for a quiet moment of safe isolation. But that wouldn’t help, would it? It’ll only make us look more guilty…

 

"Everyone, STOP!" Caiden roared - and roar he did, his voice halfway breaking into a terrible, demonic sound that sent chills up even Percula’s spine. He paused after that, if only for half a second, and Percula could all but sense the waves of ‘I didn't mean to do that’ radiating off him, even if they were imperceptible to everyone else, who saw only a demonic monstrosity that was apparently deeply frustrated and trying not to show it. Caiden's cool - at least outwardly - returned in about half a second, and he looked as stony as ever... even in his new form.

 

At least after that, Caid’s explanation seemed to get most people on their side; more people than Percula had expected, really. Granted, there was a distinct exception...

 

Malvolio, the Templar, snorted and said "I suggest that you renew whatever illusion that hid your curse from us: the next people to see you probably won't be as forgiving as us."

 

Saffron frowned. “That’s gonna be a bit, thanks to someone shouting in demon.” She grumbled, glancing sideways at Allya. She wasn’t exactly angry at the elf - it seemed to have badly affected the actually bad demon - but… still. Some warning would have been nice.

 

That’s stupid. She didn’t know before, and she couldn’t have. It’s Malvolio who’s being an ass.

 

Allya was busy banishing the demon anyway, leaving the rest of them to hang around rather awkwardly. Percula took a deep breath.

 

“On the bright side… we have another little edge on the big demon, right?” She offered quietly, glancing from one party member to the next. The temperature around her was far more normal than before as the pixie tried to relax. “Think of it like that, guys.” Saffron chimed, trying to inject a higher spirit into the tense atmosphere.

Korvarl, meanwhile, stayed reserved and uneasy. Maybe when the demon’s - well… the real demon, I guess - is gone, it’ll be a little easier to think. He thought to himself, staying quiet.
