God's Bastion, a floating island made from the ruins of Sa'eer. Originally in Sadyous, the alchemist Isa al-Ma'un (Arabic: "God gives the small kindnesses") turned the rubble into an island and to be used as a home for himself and his newly formed guild, Le Canzoni di Morte. However, Le Canzoni di Morte eventually swore allegiance to Nero after the death of al-Ma'un, who died a week after God's Bastion was made.

Sonno, Intossicati, Peste-controlled Valentine, and Novula walked into The Room of Twilight, a circular room with twenty-four chairs, the tallest owned by Nero. Like usual, Nero and Sciocco Sconosciuto were absent, thus putting Trucco Dell'occhio della Mente, The Jynxed Bateleur, in charge.
"How goes the court cases against Kyle Teef's sister, Nina?" asked Trucco.
"Excellent," informed Giustizia della Legge, the Lawyer of Justice. "Those traitors who abandoned Kyle Teef's government hope to use her as bait to lure out her brother."
"The possibility of Kyle Teef rescuing her personally is zero," said Nichilismo lo Zero di Niente con Amore, the Zero of Nothing.
"So tragic for such a little girl to be the scape goat of greedy politicians," wailed Nichilismo's twin brother, Speranza Disperazione con Amore, the Flicker of Hope. "I say that there's still hope for Nina Teef to be rescued by her brother."
"Ah, just shut up," growled Affamato Golosità, the Howling Maw. "She's being kept prisoner in my castle in Umoba. She has the same chance of escaping there as a fly escaping a Venus Flytrap."
"...Or a chicken wing in your mouth," muttered Valentine/Peste under his breath.
"Enough," commanded Trucco. "Sciocco has ordered that we guard Affamato's castle and capture any rebels we find. Genesi, accompany Giustizia and Follia back to the castle. After the verdict has been done, I'll send Appeso to execute her personally."
"The world will be a better place once we rid ourselves of these rebels," acknowledged Genesi del Mondi, the End of the World.
"The verdict will take place tomorrow," informed Follia Cappellaio, the Mad Judge. "The Defense continues to try to prolong the inevitable."
"She'll die soon enough," snickered Appeso Caotico Strangolato, the Chaotic Executioner.
"On another note, Rosso, the Saligia Restoration Committee is requesting help in the fight against the Faith. Since Mattheau de Invidia is a Senator for our governement and the Faith has not pledged allegiance to us, it leaves us with the task to help. Rosso, Novula, Sonno, I want you to provide any help you can."
"Understood," agreed Novula and Sonno.
"Interesting," said Rosso/Valentine, aka Rosseau. "I wonder what Mattheau's reaction will be when he sees his possessed brother."
"Shocking probably," guessed Coltello Tradire Carro, the Betrayed Chariot..
"Be careful," warned Sacrificio Aiuto Martire, the Cursed Martyr. "Both Mattheau and Valentine originally were one being: Azazel. Be careful not to let them touch. Such could have negative impacts."
"Lighten up," laughed Rabbia Nel Solare Connessione, the Solar Wraith. "Everything will be fine."
"Peace will eventually reign supreme," agreed LUne di Pace E. Tranquillo, the Lunar Peacekeeper.
Trucco sighed. "Just get on your tasks before I get a headache."
Le Canzoni di Morte was dismissed.

Nero sat in his throne as Trucco Dell'occhio della Mente created four spheres that allowed Nero to watch his men in there upcoming assault on the rebellion bases. “They are completed, sir” said Trucco has he placed his wand back into his robes, “If I may ask, why would you want to send four members of the La Canzoni to assault the four largest rebellion bases?” asked Trucco with a bow. Nero looked at Trucco, “Humans are easy to break when they feel they are no longer safe” said Nero. “But didn’t you say that the rebellion’s leaders are the largest threat to us? What if they intervene?” asked Trucco. Nero stood up, “They have been my enemies since you were just learning to talk, I have made my plan so that they won’t be able to interfere…inform me when they arrive at the bases, I will be in my quarters” said Nero as he disappeared into the darkness.
****************
Nero appeared in his quarters and fell to the ground, grabbing his head is agony, “Give me time…you will have your payment” said Nero as he closed his eyes in pain. When Nero reopened his eyes, he was floating in a world of light and darkness with a huge being before him, “Its been over a year…give me my payment!!!” said a low, angry voice from the huge being before him. “More time, Mulgarus…I haven’t completed my work yet” said Nero as he fell to is knees from the power Mulgarus was releasing. Mulgarus extended his arm towards Nero, “I don’t care, I will just take my payment…your life!!!” yelled Mulgarus as he tried to grab Nero, but something prevented Mulgarus from reaching Nero. Mulgarus looked at what prevented him from grabbing Nero, “You!!!” yelled Mulgarus, he looked down at Nero, “It seems your predecessor prevents me from leaving me from taking what is rightfully mine…be sure to think him, if he hadn’t appeared…you wouldn’t have existed anymore” said Mulgarus. Suddenly, Nero found himself in his chambers again, the pain in his head almost completely gone. Nero stood up, “So my theory was correct, you’re the one preventing Mulgarus from taking control” said Nero as he looked at the sword on his back.

After a knock on the door, Nero granted Novula permission inside. The Canzoni stood at attention before Nero.
"Did Trucco send you?" asked Nero, guessing Trucco was done.
"No, it's about Nina Teef," said Novula.
"You can tell Follia for the last time, I am not interested in attending her execution."
"No, sir, Nina Teef is gone. She's escaped."
Nero snickered softly to himself. "No matter. We got what we tried to achieve... isn't that right, Noah."
An Undead soldier walked in, reborn through Purezza's Capacita: Noah Weazel. Noah had gone undercover in the base in Azuriya and Le Canzoni used Nina as bait for the raid on Castle Gula. Since members of the raiding party came from several bases, Noah was able to obtain the locations of the four main bases.
"There is a problem though," said Noah. "I overheard a couple soldiers mention a fifth headquarters."
"A fifth? I want it found. These rebels must be eliminated."
"As you wish."
Noah left.
"Novula."
"Yes?"
"I want you to check on something for me..."

Trucco recieved the report from Tiranni about the abandoned base.
"Could they have found out about the attacks?" wondered Imperatrice.
"Unlikely," said Trucco. "Blind luck on their part. Next time they won't be as lucky."

Nero sat on his throne, looking over the four he sent to the bases, “Out of the four of you, only two succeeded in accomplished there mission” said Nero as he looked at the four. Distrugge and Speranza presented the golden puzzle pieces they obtained to Sin, how took them to Nero. Nero examined the pieces, then looked back at the four, “Report to me why you don’t have your pieces” said Nero as he focused on Appeso and Rabbia, Rabbia was heavily bandaged. Appeso spoke first, “Forgive me, Master Nero, I searched he entire base and found no sign of it…from what I could gather, it was never sent to that base” said Appeso respectfully. “I guess those rebels aren’t as predictable as I thought, no matter, I’ve sent Intossicati to gather information on the rebels” said Nero as he looked towards Sin, “Tell her to she what she can find out about this piece as well as continue with her original assignment” said Nero. Sin nodded, “Right away, sir” said Sin. Nero looked towards Rabbia, “Now tell me, Rabbia, why don’t you have your piece?” said Nero. Rabbia didn’t look Nero in the eyes, “I found the piece, but that Sango Shinzo guy had it and-” Rabbia was interrupted by Nero, “You honestly thought you could defeat Sango Shinzo? You’re the last person that could defeat him, I thought I had intelligent people under my command…but I guess one incompliant fool found his way into the Le Canzoni’s ranks” said Nero. Rabbia looked at Nero, “Just give me one more chance, I’ll destroy him next time, I swear on my-” Rabbia stopped mid sentence as he looked Nero in the eyes. Rabbia suddenly felt a suffocating aura weight him down to his knees, when the aura let up, Rabbia was drenched in a cold sweat and breathing heavily. “I don’t tolerate failure, but I’m feeling merciful…you have one more chance, Rabbia, if you fail one more time, you will die…understand?” said Nero. Rabbia nodded without looking at Nero, “Good, you are all dismissed” said Nero and they all left quickly, except for Distrugge, who Nero had told to stay. “Yes, Master Nero?” asked Distrugge, Nero smirked, “You defeated a man that I wanted to kill more then anyone else, I am pleased to see that such a powerful person like you are within the Le Canzoni ranks, but I must ask…why didn’t you deliver the killing blow?” asked Nero, obviously very interested in Distrugge answer. Distrugge closed his eyes, “That fight took more out of me then I had thought it would, I would not have been able to fight off those rebels that appeared if I had stuck around” said Distrugge with a bow. Nero’s smirk disappeared, I don’t like being lied to Distrugge, but I’ll forgive it this time, you are dismissed” said Nero. After Distrugge left, Nero looked at Sin, “By the way, I had heard an old acquaintance of yours has come out of hiding…what do you think of that?” asked Nero. Sin crossed his arms, “I have no interest in someone like him” said Sin, Nero chuckled, “Did you not hear me say I don’t like being lied too?” said Nero as he disappeared into the darkness. Sin walked towards the balcony in the throne room, “I have a feeling you will be a huge nuisance…Ryuujin Takemara” said Sin.

After requesting an audience with his leader, Novula was allowed into Nero's throne room. Novula walk halfway and knelt down.
"You said you have obtained 'interesting' information," said Nero.
"Yes," said Novula. "According to a cultist I interrogated, the Fallen Order's leader, Vincent Lhuillier, has one of the five Jigsaw Map Puzzle Pieces."
"And where is he now?"
"The New Government Military, N-GRAM (New Government's Regular Automonous Militia), believes that Lhuillier is somewhere in Umoba."
"Genesi and Sonno are at The Crater with a N-GRAM unit in search for Grain's Key, which was kept in the Mirage Mansion at Sa'eer. Novula, I want you to observe the situation and bring me updates."
"Understood."
Novula teleported to Umoba.

Nero was standing at the balcony in his throne room, when Sin appeared before him, “Master Nero, we have a problem” said Sin with urgency in his voice. Nero turned and looked at Sin, “Problem?” said Nero, Sin nodded, “We have discovered a rebel base in Azuriya, they are preparing for battle against the New Government” said Sin. “If that all, then inform Hansen to deal with it” said Nero, “That not the problem, sir, this base…it’s the entire city…if the New Government gets involved, the we might lose influence in the people” said Sin as he looked up at Nero. “I see the rebels have thought this one through carefully” said Nero as darkness began to form around him, “If the New Government can’t get involved, I’ll deal with this situation myself…I’ve been getting bored lately anyways” said Nero as he disappeared into the shadows.

Nero had kept to himself ever since he had gone to deal with Azuriyan rebel city. For the most part, orders had been delivered through Sin. Not many of the Canzoni liked this; some even suspected that Sin was lying about Nero even being present.
Dio arrived at God's Bastion. He eventually Sin in Everywhere Yet Nowhere with Tiranni. Tiranni finished submitting his report and left. Dio walked over to Sin.
"Rosso's plan has been undone," reported Dio.
"Good," said Sin. "Rosso made a grab for power by trying to gain the Sakura Kingdom of Valentini from us. That's why we ordered Mai Darling to kill Rosso afterwards."
"In a way, it worked well for us. Regardless of whether we helped Valentini out or let the coup d'etat play out, we would have gained Valentini."
"True but Rosso had to pay for working behind our backs."
"Regardless, he's dead. He died during the battle with Uzkul. Details of his death are still sketchy."
"Understood. I'll have Coltello look into it."
Dio yawned.
"You look stressed," said Sin sympathetically. "Half of Le Canzoni di Morte are off on missions. I suggest taking this time to get some rest."
"I think I'll take your advice," agreed Dio.
Dio took a key out of his pocket and left the room.

Dio returned to God's Bastion, refreshed. He found Intossicati still disappointed that her conspiracy with Ash DuVawk had be thwarted, and thus was drowning herself with alcohol.
Dio entered the throne room. Genesi was inside, giving a report to Nero about the recent Faith activity.
"I see," said Nero. "I'd like for Aiuto to investigate this Prophet. I want to know his true identity."
Genesi bowed and left. Dio walked over to Nero. On a small table was a chess board. Dio placed the bishop next to the black king. He then removed a white bishop and a white king.
"There's rumors that Kyle Teef has gone missing and that Aventh DeValen has abandoned the Alliance," informed Dio.
"Interesting," said Nero. "In a way, cousin, that helps us out. It took most of my strength and Aventh DeValen's to weaken my father. He is not someone to underestimate." He thought for a moment. "The gods have been spending a lot of attention on Aventh lately. I wonder why."
"Spies still loyal to my mother tell me that the gods plan to leave the world alone," informed Dio. "Which may be a problem."
"And why do you say that?"
"I believe the gods may have bestowed Aventh the Mark of Light. He'll then be able to sense the Mark of Darkness. If he follows the Mark of Darkness, that'l lead him..."
"Here," said Nero coldly. "Dio, inform Sin that we'll be having company and to make the necessary arrangements."
Dio left the throne room to find Sin.

Aventh appeared on the outskirts of God's Bastion, he looked around at the desolate land scape, in the distance was a large castle, he could sense the Mark of Darkness coming from the Castle and started to head that way, he proceeded with caution and stopped a good distance away form the castle "Who is there?" Aventh said looking around "I can sense your presence"

An old man flew down from a cliff. The man wore a white and dark purple robe and had spikey grey hair and a gotee. He had a cane.
"I am Vecchio Eremita Senza Età the Ancient Hermit, Le Canzoni di Morte's Number 9," informed the elder. "I am the guardian of this base. All intruders will be eliminated. I don't care if Nero wants to let you pass. I won't let any whippersnapper get past me!"
Vecchio tapped his cane. It turned into a six-foot fan called Vecchiaia. He swiped the fan, unleashing a gust of wind. Aventh easily countered with his own wind attack, which blew away Vecchio's and would have knocked Vecchio away had the old man not stabbed Vecchiaia into the ground, anchoring himself.
"Don't you underestimate us single digit Canzoni!" declared Vecchio.
Vecchio flew up into the air. He threw Vecchiaia at Aventh. Aventh barely dodged the spinning fan, it scratching his face.
Suddenly, Aventh felt his face go numb. He was starting to lose energy.
"My Capacita, Pollo, is taking effect," laughed Vecchio. "As long as my opponent has an open wound, I can speed up your age. I'll make you so old that you turn to dust!"
Aventh laughed, leading to Vecchio to nervously stop laughing. "I'm over 200 years old. This won't do much. Besides, I have the power over time." Pollo's damage to Aventh's face stopped. "You can't beat me."

"Ill say this right now" Aventh said from behind "you simply met the wrong opponent" Aventh grabbed the back of Vecchio's head and slamming his head into the ground "Too bad to, I was hoping to be able to try out this... Mark of Light, but with you I didn't even get to activate it... oh well, Lighting's grasp" Aventh's hand that was grabbing onto Vecchio's head keeping it in the ground released a massive pulse of lighting into Vecchio, for a few seconds his body jumped around, the electrical impulses going wild causing his body to seizure, and then he became still "If the Le Canzoni are a threat, then I should eliminate you when I have the chance to do so" Aventh said standing back up "Now shall I see whats inside this little castle?"

Aventh reached one of the entrances into the castle complex. Despite dark and barren outside of God's Bastion, the inside of the castle labyrinth was completely white. Standing at the foot of the stairs was a black haired man who weilded the cross Croce.
"Nero is expecting you, Aventh DeValen," greeted the Canzoni. "My apologies, I never introduced myself. I am the Cross of God, Dio di Eresia, Le Canzoni di Morte's Number 5."
"A Canzoni, huh," said Aventh. "I think I'll take you out on my way to the Mark of Darkness."
Dio sighed. "Please don't look down on me. It's disrespectful."
Aventh blinked. Dio was gone and was now standing behind Aventh. Dio smacked Aventh in the head with Croce before Aventh could react.
Like I'll let that slide, thought Aventh.
Aventh tried to manipulate the space around Dio but found that it wasn't working.
"Sorry, but you lose," said Dio.
Croce shifted into a sword. Dio stabbed Aventh in the chest.
"Don't worry, I purposely missed your vitals," said Dio. "While you're healing, I suggest you take the time to concentrate on using the Mark of Light. As you are now, your Mark of Light will be the downfall of you."
Dio removed the sword and walked off.
"Nero is three doors to the right," informed Dio as he exited the room.

"Really, you should never help your enemy's" Aventh mused as his wound began to slowly heal "But I suppose finishing off Nero would be easier than killing every canzoni I run into" Aventh got up and looked down the hall way "but its weird... I dont sense the Mark of Darkness in the direction he is in..." Aventh frowned and looked to his left "In fact, its in the completely opposite direction" Aventh shook his head and leaned up against the wall behind him looking the the direction Dio left in "I could find him and interrogate him" Aventh said
