From the mouth of a Demon Lord:
There comes a time when we all must endulge in
guilty pleasures and sin. Sometimes, we find ourselves lost in the
eternal struggle of right and wrong. Sometimes, our choices make us
choose poorly, and the opprotunity of stupidity knocks on our doors. At
this point, most people would think that they would get away with this,
and would do it anway.
This is when I come into play.
I am Aellon. Lord Aellon to my peers, master to
some, threat to others. I am the lord of the lustful winds, the one who
calls upon storms and unleashes it upon others. I am nature's fury, in
demonic form. When stupidity befalls the weak minded, and they go
against the kingdom in which I serve, I am the one who they call to
punish them. When they call, I am given a flower to monitor. A dying
lotus blossom, black in color.
This lotus blossom slowly begins to fade,
disappearing a the petals burn away. At the point of its final
consumption, that is when I know that my turn to punish foolishness has
I am a protector, a noble, and a destroyer all at
the same time.
What is it that I do?
I assassinate. What else?
I am the tearing breeze of the Black Lotus Petals. I
was never one for the name of our guild, but I do realize that it was
named by a young girl. So perhaps that is where all the rather
un-masculine references in the assassin society comes from. What we do
is simple. We recieve a call, presumably from the demon prince Mukuro,
and we assess the situation. It is then that our overseer and leader
(If you can call her a leader) Stigma mandates whom should go take care
of the situation.
I am used for
larger projects. So one can imagine that my name isn't drawn out of the
proverbial hat until something large is truly needed. However, when I
do come out to work, most beings realize that it should not be taken
The demon and human population of the Carnal Kingdom
number in the millions. Much like the human realm, the numbers have
grown considerably over the years. It is not too much to say that
sometimes there is a need to... thin out... the population.
Usually at that point, I will go and take out the
trash, to put it kindly.
But that is just one of my strong points.
As said, most of the time, someone decides to be
foolish. And with this foolishness, comes idiotic ideals. Maybe one
will decide to break the laws (which are few to none). Maybe one will
try to commit an act of treason. But usually, it just requires one
wrong move, in order to have one of visit you.
And when the flower burns down to nothing... that is
when you know it is all over.
The way this world works is funny.
One day I was given the opprotunity to become
something more. I was visited by the young girl named Stigma, and she
explained that I
was needed. She wanted to ask for my help, and with it, I would be
elevated in power. A chance to become something imore is something one
can not pass up.
Tested, needless to say I passed with flying colors.
As they say, after that, the devil was in the details.
I have been doing this for a few centuries now. It
feels like it hasn't been that long. But given that time can sometimes
be relative when you can plane jump, it becomes hard to judge the world
in an amount of years.
After all, when you go somewhere where their time is
half the speed of your home's, then who is to say that you won't lose
track of time?
There was a time that I had pondered such things as
fealty. Fealty towards the Prince of these lands, and especially
towards the leader of the Black Lotus Petals. I have always seen myself
as a leader... one such as I should not have to put up with such
After all, I work around mostly children.
Most of them are little girls. I do tend to work
around some boys, or some boys dressed as girls (depending on who you
are talking about). It is their wonderfully dark minds that has created
this society. Still, sometimes, just putting up with their moods can be
extremely frustrating. Imagine having to put up with the same constant
annoyance for years, even centuries to come. That is what I have to
deal with.Whether I like it or not, isn't even the question.
All I can do is bide my time and wait to see what
happens. If the opprotunity arises, I will take it. Until then, I
should probably just enjoy myself. As to not do something foolish
I do have one saving grace however; that grace would
be Elena, my little pet.
I have always felt that there was more to this
existence then sheer killing and struggles for power. Upon meeting her
that first time, so few years ago in the market, I think my whole life
changed, and I believe for the better.
If one can measure their life in years one has
worked, then I have begun to measure myself in years I have been with
She is innocent. Innocence is rare these days,
especially in the Carnal Kingdom. Of course I do not mean innocence as
in the innocence of purity. Of course we have had sex. She is my
property, after all.
But I am the kind to look past the purity of
viginity and see a different type of innocence. When I come home, be it
dusk or dawn, her smile is warming. She greets me with the same
happiness that anyone would their loving master. But the glow in her
eyes does not fade. It does not betray hidden feelings. It is pure,
warm and very, very important to me.
I am a demon lord. A majin, as some would say. I
hold the dignity and rank of a shogun in japan, or a noble lord in
Europe. I could command legions of demons if I want. But all I truly
want is her.
Demons come in all flavors. Some are cruel and
unusual, and those types tend to act that way because that is what they
were taught. Some are calculating and dangerous, because they know that
in order to succeed, one must devour another. And some are playful,
because they have the freedom to be so. I put myself into another
catagory, and always have. Now, I see that catagory is more true
because of her.
This catagory is called refinement. And this
refinement is not evil or good. It is the way a noble should act,
regardless of what they are. And your reward for this refinement, this
pefection of the mind and spirit into one personality, is greater then
anything you can imagine. Not that bitterness that you find in
True happiness can be found in the perfection of discipline.
...And that, my friends, is worth killing for.
