The Fate Of The Realm I by NyxenAvenger The Fate Of The Realm I by NyxenAvenger
The air was cold as ice, the stars had been raised from their slumber to witness the battle that was about to happen over the buried ruins, for this would be a battle that would determine the fate of all Midrealm. 

As Argus drew closer to the source of the crimson clouds, amongst the ruins of a forgotten temple, she felt dread and anger emanate amongst the stone and sand. And there she saw in front of her the winged cultist with the power of a hundred underspawn, Krazoa. He was kneeling next to a stone grave, one hand gripped on a great spectral sword and another on his lap. He took notice of the underspawn's arrival, and turned his head to look towards his adversary.

"So, wretched guardian. This must be the Celestial Sage destined to stop me, you are quite...pudgy for such a sage." Argus dusted herself off before standing off against her foe, who started to rise from his kneeling.

"Well, I expected ya to be a lot younger looking."

"One thousand years wears a man down, even for one like myself."
Krazoa pulled the crimson sword from out of the sands with one hand, pointing the tip towards the underspawn's stomach. Fear gripped Argus as he coldly stared at her.

"You do realise what must happen here, you die, or I do." Argus tried to let go of any fears she had of him, the determination to endure filled her body.

"I'm not going to let ya take the souls of my kind anymore, never again." Krazoa chuckled as he ran his clawed hand against the cold hard slab of the grave, the smile faded as he looked upon the words carved into it.

"These are the grounds I buried the remains of my wife and children, after your kind devoured them piece by piece. I cannot remember their faces, only their bloodied corpses upon the sands we both stand upon. What makes you different from the rest? What makes you fit to judge me?" He clenched his glowing fist, while Argus stood there, steady and confident in herself.

"Because I'm more than that ya know! I protect the helpless and innocent, for I am Argus the Celestial Sage! And by all the cosmos I will do everything to protect my brethren and this realm!" Krazoa started to walk up to her, prompting the hefty underspawn to do the same. Only seconds were away before they clashed to decide the fate of Midrealm.

"Prove it. Or I will bury your soul in the sands just like your kind did to mine!"

Argus took out her blades as Krazoa lunged at her with his sword, intent on bringing the full scale of his wrath to her.

"Gladly."

The battle begins, only one shall live.
