Francis was mesmerized at the land around him. A new world to explore and new people to meet. But what he saw and heard soon after destroyed that wonder completely. It felt as if he never left the old world, the prejudice against Nera was so strong he could feel it at the very air; and to add to that atmosphere, he felt a surge of power from the distance that alarmed him greatly.

The time when Aoi returned with an injured Nera and after hearing her story, it was all surreal in his opinion. These people were idiots to see something as demonic. Back in the old world people would pay Nera mountains of riches to provide water for them to survive. It irked him so much that someone who was pure has suffered so much.

He was alarmed when he saw a woman dragged Nera through a mysterious portal; and when he saw Aoi rush off through a portal he made, Francis knew he had to act. He grabbed his blades and secured them to his person. He quickly summoned some of his wolves and men and ordered them to watch his caravan before following Aoi through the portal he made. "This is gonna suck a thousand times over; but it's worth it. For a friend, it shall be done."

When Francis followed him through the portal, Aoi felt it. When they came back through and the portal closed, he looked back at Francis. "I'd appreciate it if you told me when you're following me through a portal. It takes my energy to pull you through." he said, half sarcastic. It really did take his own energy to pull along everything going through that portal. "Anyway, we need to find Nera..." He ran off, looking around for the girl and calling her name.

"Yeah, I hear ya. Just hold on a minute Aoi, let's scout out the area first before diving in head first." Francis summoned a few of his wolves and eagles to scout out the surrounding area. He gave them explicit instructions to keep a look out for Nera. With a multitude of howls and screeches, his animals set of to do their duty. He ran up to Aoi, his hands at the ready near his blades. He could feel something was wrong, the moment they stepped foot on this dimension. They have to find her soon...

Aoi sighed. "I'm just scared... Francis, Nera will die if we don't find her soon...." He clenched his fists. "That 'sister' of hers disgusts me! Does she really take family for granted? Is she really going to take Nera to her death just for herself? Who does she think she is?" He let out a frustrated, angry wordless yell. "Calm down, just calm down...." he said to himself. He'd done this before, and it never ended well. Whenever he got angry enough, his inhuman side kicked in and he went on a rampage of some sort. He had to control it... He couldn't lose himself....

Nera landed in a cave with a thud. "Nice to see you again, Nera." Thanatos announced. "Thanatos, I am will do whatever you want, just please, let me contact my friends, and then let them go!" Nera pleaded. "Really.... gave up so fast? Well, I guess so. Take this pearl, throw it on the ground, and picture who you want to speak with. I will give you 5 minutes. Hurry up." He tossed her the pearl. "Thank you, sir." Nera replied. She caught the pearl, and threw it on the ground. She could see both of them. "Francis! Aoi! Please, leave me and run away! This is my destiny, and I earned it! Go, leave this world and live! Thank you for everything, but please, don't look for me!" the pearl abruptly vanished. "Time's up.Now, let's begin." With a flick of his finger, blue energy started flowing out of Nera chest. Nera felt a severe pain. "Yes.....after all these decades..... the power of water is mine!" Then he stopped, stored the energy he had in a case, and put it in his pocket. "I want you to really suffer. So, I guess this will take a while." he turned away, and vanished. The last thing Nera could remember was thinking, "I wish I had stayed in Veialle."

Francis saw her, it felt like a portal but it wasn't at the same time. He could see she was in a cave, with a man that he presumes to be Thanatos, 'Such a distasteful name, he does the name a disservice. God of Death my foot; the true Lord of Death is in Veialle, not this imposter who seeks the power of water.' "Nera! You're not telling us to leave you behind. We're coming to save you! Thanatos, harm her and your dead! You hear me, dead!" He noticed the window was flickering, signalling him that the connection would be lost. Before it disappeared, he saw her writhe in pain.

"You will pay for this, all of you will pay!" As he yelled his parting words, the window vanished. He cursed a loud; how dare this upstart to harm something precious of his. How dare this pathetic faker gleefully harm her. To see his friend is such a state tore his heart in two and boiled his blood to extreme levels. Maybe they could open a gate or better yet find the damnable cave to reach her. In his frustration, Francis summoned the entirety of his Wild Hunt. Soon an array of animals ranging from the beasts of the earth to the beasts of the air, down to the bandits and essence hunters he collected all throughout the years of his life. He turned to the multitude behind him and addressed them in a thunderous voice, "You have all seen through my eyes, you can feel the essence in the air, find her! I don't care if you have to tear this world apart, I don't care if you have to kill every last being here, just find and and bring her to me alive and safe! If you cannot bring her here, then lead me to her! To the man who claims to be Thanatos, kill him! End him! A travesty against all we believe in has no right to live after this very day!"

The roar of the multitude behind him was all he need before they ran in every direction. He slowly dropped to his knees, his breathing grew labored. To summon the entirety of his Hunt was always this tiring. He gripped the pommel of his blades, his knuckles growing white from the strain. The fool will pay, not with riches but his worthless life.

Aoi sensed it. He just felt it. Nera was dead.

And with that, he gave in to his inhuman rage threatening to take him over.

He yelled- no, roared in anger, opening up yet another portal and going in. And sure enough, he saw Nera's dead body and Thanatos laughing over it. "You... Will... Pay!" he yelled, and with the new speed and power that his inhuman parts brought out he ran forward, jumped up, and slashed off Thanatos' laughing head. With the killer dead, he snapped back into himself. He looked around, breathing heavily from the sudden outburst, which added to his previous exhaustion. He completely lost his consciousness when he let his rage take over like that; he was quite literally a monster, unfeeling and only out to kill. He bent down and picked up Nera's dead body. He opened a portal and came back to Francis. "He's dead... But so is Nera...." he said, walking past. He went all the way back to the caravan, then stopped. Right next to it, he set Nera down, dug a hole, then set her into it. He covered the hole up, then found a rock and used his sword to carve 'R.I.P. Nera' into it. He set it firmly in the ground at the head of her grave, then put flowers on it. "May you rest in peace, friend...." he said quietly.

Francis bore witness to Aoi's rage. It was such a sight to behold, Thanatos was taken aback, he wasn't ready to have his head chopped off by Aoi's rage-filled strike. He followed Aoi through the portal, seeing as the boy wasn't himself. He searched Thanatos' body and found a peculiar container that glowed a bright sea blue. He pocketed the thing, thinking that this might be of use in the future, and followed Aoi through the portal once again.

He followed Aoi as he made a small grave for Nera. He was frustrated as he bore witness to this, She was not dead, she cannot be dead. "Aoi, dig her up. Don't bury someone who isn't dead." His voice was hoarse as he knelt down at the side of the grave, "She isn't dead. She's just sleeping, that's all. Just, just get her out of there."

Aoi looked back at Francis. "Francis... Yes, she's dead. I've seen so much death in my life, I should know... She's... She's gone...." he said, but even as his words suggested that he was staying strong and moving on his tone gave away that he didn't want any of this to be real. He looked back down at the grave. "I should've known at if anyone gave me any affection, the world would slash them down... Any world... Because I'm a freak, I was never meant to be... The world has always isolated me from the warmth others can give, and intends to keep it that way, I guess...." He looked back down at the grave. "Nera, I'm so sorry..." He dropped to his knees. "If only I'd been quicker... If only I'd tried harder... This is all my fault, you showed me affection but the world didn't want that, and took you down...." He clenched his fists. "It's all my fault...."

"By the Makers above, she's not dead!" He recalled all his summons, and brought forth a couple of Essence Hunters to his side. He told them to grab a shovel and dig Nera out of there. "When you boys get her out of there, I want you to clear her up. A lady such as herself does not deserve the earth marring her entire being." He turned to Aoi, his eyes were stained with tears. He took a deep breathe before speaking, "It wasn't your fault, it was the faker's fault. He took something from here. Something that might help bring her back." He slowly brought out the container and showed it to Aoi. "I found this when I followed you and searched Thanato's body. Maybe...maybe we can bring her back with this..."

Aoi looked at what was Francis was holding. "You really think we can bring her back...?" he said quietly. Any chance... any chance at all that the girl could come back, he'd take it. He didn't want her to be dead... He really didn't... He brushed some of the dirt off of her and looked at her. "I'm willing to try it...."

Nera comes from a different dimension and teleported to Veialle, this is that alternate dimension. Francis and Aoi are only here because Aoi has the ability to jump dimensions. You can really post anywhere else.

Durako stepped out from the back of the caravan, having been listening to the scene. It was not his business to save someone else's life, especially in a realm he did not belong. Despite this, there was one thing he knew. Nera was dead. And that was certain. No sort of potion could bring someone back. If their being was gone, then if one attempted to bring back their body... It would simply be an empty shell, similar to the wandering creatures of Veialle.

He silently stepped over to where they were standing.

"Stop."

He said, watching the scene, with his apathetic, cynical eyes. His sinister figure stood behind the hopeless duo.

Francis. Nera is dead. You can't bring her back, and that is certain. The only legitimate way for one to come back is if the gods themselves brought them. If you attempt what you are about to do, you will regret it. I've seen it happen before, and it was far from pleasant. Do you want a walking shell that looks like Nera? A broken machine, missing a core component - the soul. Do you?

He did not understand. Why, exactly? They had known Nera for only a short while, or so he assumed. Why cry over the death of someone you barely knew? Why mourn death at all? It was inevitable, a fate that awaited all. Even the gods. Even Death himself, not that false fellow, Thanatos, would die one day. Besides that, surely this man had seen many a death in his lifetime. And surely Aoi had seen many a more tough hardship than this. Surely. So why? He did not know.

If resurrection were to be attempted, Nera's soul would be pulled to somewhere between life and death, a limbo of sort. He only knew this from eavesdropping on someone gifted with the ability to speak with the dead. They specialized in releasing souls from limbo. 'Don't do it.' he thought.

Besides that, that bluish potion looked naught like any potion to bring back the dead he had seen. It was something else. Essence perhaps? No. The potion looked like nothing he had ever seen.

"Wait. Let me see that bottle. Before you do anything rash in your... current state."
