About this creation
Music for this chapter:
Arsem began heading to the Luminara Portal...
carrying the vial with him.
They finally arrived, but the penninsula seemed different.
Because of the energy being emitted from the portal, the land around it was beggining to decay.
Arsem's demons followed him into the portal.
They gathered around the tomb.
A labor spawn lifted the lid off.
Arsem began pouring the liquid from the vial onto Azhir's remains.
The tomb was filled with a black liquid, and Azhir began to rise from it.
Azhir was standing on the liquid, as if it were solid ground.
Arsem: Come forward Azhir.
Azhir: How is this possible?
Arsem: When I first came here, the energy from your skull infused me with part of your spirit, and your blood. I completed a ritual, in which the blood of the Beast was mixed with ours, creating a new life force. This life is now given to you.
Come to me, my minions!
Arsem: They no longer serve you. It's just like you said before you died. I have succeeded you. Funny, before all of this, you stood at my side with me being your superior. And now, here we are again. I'm leaving it to you to command this army as my general.
Arsem held out his hand as a glowing stick appeared.
The stick took shape into a weapon... his fathers word.
Azhir: I know what this means...
I would be honored to serve as your general, my lord.
