Inktober Day 31- MASK
You can wait here until next drawings are revealed or have it all revealed at behance

For this year, I've been dwelling in my old stories once again, this time re-imagining the pivotal "Spirit Fight" tournament, sticking how I could to match the official prompt list. On the championship, teams of three members fight each other through a group phase and then through three rows of classifying into the great final. This fighting championship involved techno-shamans from around the world. Given the disturbance, it was not strange to find techno-shamans from other dimensions, hailing from dystopias, utopias, with spirits, summonable allies and downloadable A.I.s more strange or familiar than the competitors themselves. Each had a question to settle in the fights, it's understood that merit would evaluate those who advance ahead. Couldn't be more wrong, as a mysterious competitor rigged the championship to begin with. They just find it out in season 5's finale (I guess...)

Present characters:
The TEAM TRUTH are the lighter masks:
THOTH (Djehuti) whose protector is Khnum, thus with ram mask; ANUBIS (Anpu) whose protector is Ammit, thus with crocodile mask and HORUS (Her-Ur) whose protector is Bennu, as RA-HORAKHTHY, for he leads the team.
The TEAM LIGHT got darker ones:
Doctor Morgan masquerades as Khepri, Zon (The Fourth) masquerades as Set and Lapolo masquerades as AMEN-RA, for he leads the team.

Morgan used to be a mentor for a bunch of kids who among other things changed time, created another species, and reset time events. Dealing with genetics and physics, he was approached by the Insect Syndicate and became the Scarab for a while. As his lab mate still remains on it as Scorpion, he has callings to expand intel. His new allegiance with Zon and Lapolo's enterprise concerns taking a peek at techno-sorcery, apt for his summons, Fogo and Fogogan, worshipped by neanderthals as volcano gods. His agenda is a secret one, involving going back and forth in time, he re-discovered the zero particle which ignited the Big Bang and watched as it grew. Lapolo claims to be the living image, Morgan wants him to accept this assumption is wrong. That would have all the story challenged as we know it.

Zon has been on a long run against one of these kids in specifics, and even longer by millennia run to overthrow Lapolo, but the resurfacing of Tinteno-Criticazoicans weighted further, even more when they were secretly sponsored by his greatest rival, so Lapolo became a necessary teamworker. His "spirit" is his creator, the A.I. Onyx whose goal is eliminating all biological life, leading transition to nano-machines. It can summon "other Zons", everafter the destruction of "the Father", former assistants became hosts of Zon as a virus. This process accounted people from everafter the WWII, since the competing A.I.s entered in an agreement: Spectro has the Pacific, Onyx the Atlantic and Tron the Indian, as they banned the errand A.I. MOLOCH from the defeated Reich.  But each plot still to this day on ways to infiltrate destroy and rebuild each other's domains. Onyx runs with the spirit of Chaos for they were opposed by two sons of darkness at the same time, neglected participation in creation of the human race.

Lapolo got the upper hand on bureaucracies, reborn anew as son to a Chinese Magnate, he has administrating skills and is about to foundate his own company, much to Zon's dismay, whose fourth incarnation had other plans. Be that as it may, Lapolo the owner and Zon the CEO, they mean to create an opposition to SPECTRO, who controls more than half of the world now and released his last weapon of destruction, who has an interest in Lapolo - his power. Fated to be the ION, one must either kill the other or the surge of power from Ion would make them an irrational fusion. Lapolo is incomplete in terms of existance - split as Xis , he no longer recognises his "other", who'd rather kill him by the inside. Unaware this was an intended accident so Zon could finally weaken his undesired partner, he joins his group (LIGHT) with the TRUTH team. They recognise the spirit of Chaos as necessary to justify and preserve Ma'At. One thing which can mend a divided being are the Plumes of Amon, being which fused to Ra to heal him and ended up having the upper hand, until split again. They know it's whereabouts. But they didn't tell they mean to mend someone else, so they'll keep Lapolo out of it, for his role is another - collect Isfet, become Apep and awake the NO FAIA ZIGGURAT. They intend to return to the truth of Ma'At, so they must overthrow a foreigner  from the throne they see as their own.

Each with a secret agenda, but united by the purpose of reaching the end of the competition and set the flames new again. Their merit lies in revolutionary and radical changes, albeit through the most subtle ways.
