The Palace of the Red Queen
Mar 23, 2012 4:03 PM
Behold... your new home: The Palace of the Red Queen
In the Throne Room you will be assigned various missions (quests and conquests really) as she folds time and space upon each other in order to warp you anywhere in the world in no time whatsoever...
Various other locations like the Gate House, Corridors, Dining Hall, Barracks, Courtyard, and other such locations WITHIN the Palace...

Jericho was standing in the Throne Room... but just 3 seconds earlier, he was in Chicago as he just finished tearing a new asshole into some sort of cannibalistic demon monster from God knows where.
Jericho took one look around the Hall and whistled, he'd only been officialy called here 2 or 3 times before and those calls were for really extra special cool missions... he was looking forward to this next hunt.
He wondered allowed "I wonder if its another solo mission..."

Rihei entered into the Throne Room, opening the Massive stone doors and stepping in. His face held no expression, as he made his way to stand in front of the throne. His greatsword was sheathed on his back.
Rihei had just gotten back from wiping out a nest of vampires. If you could call them that. The bastards sparkled in sunlight. Sparkled

A portal was suddenly wrenched open in the throne room and a girl, Lena, walked through it. Being one of the best, she had seen this place a little more often then most, but no matter how many times she sees it, she is in awe of its beauty.
Why the portal, one may ask. It's simple. Just as the Red Queen has different reasons for blooding mortals, so too does she have different methods of summoning them. Also, Lena lead a double life and couldn't be randomly warped in without arousing suspicion.
Anyway, she enters the throne room and sees someone else with her: a man who, as far as she could tell, has an insatiable bloodlust. She hears his wondering and shakes her head. "Hate to burst your bubble but that's probably not going to happen."

Lorraine stepped in The Throne Room few minutes after Rihei.From her long,claw-like perfect nails was dripping blood.As she enters,she wipes the remaining drops with a napkin.What she did?Cleaned out some filthy rich men dealing prostitution.Only that those men weren't exactly human...She notices three other people,and makes a grimace.

Jericho turned his head sharply to the left, in his blood he sensed something... something familiar.
He saw a young man with large sword strapped to his back and he could feel it, sense it, and almost smell it: The WRATH in this man's blood.
He knew now what he was looking at, a brother Thrall serving their queen... a Thrall of Wrath.
Another one also entered and then yet ANOTHER... this time he could feel the LUST and PRIDE from them both, he knew that he'd better be more wary of these ones than Wrath...

Rihei doesn't speak, merely nodding his reply. He wasn't the talkative type. Never was. While he waits for his queen, Rihei leans against one of the many pillars that adorn the hall, his arms across his chest.

Jericho about to answer Pride noticed a new woman enter the room... Greed as he sensed it.
He stifled a sigh and thought to himself 'What is the Red Queen thinking? Collecting 5 different Vices for one Mission?' But he knew better than to question the Queen... such thoughts were treasonous enough as is.
So instead he said "Speaking of Bloodlust..." in regards to Greed's current gore splattered attire..

Jericho looks down at himself and sees there is a little bit of now dry blood on his boots, but none clothes. He then checks his hands and realizes he's still got bloodstains on them and flesh stuck under his nails...
He now begins to slowly wipe them on his jeans... and listens intenly to the conversation before him...

Greed laughs,like a mad woman she was."You're just as stupid as you are prideful." she shakes her head."What I seek for,you,humile woman,has nothing to do with what you could offer.I seek the eptiome of all whealths,one that brings happiness.So your words are futile.You,the one who has everything,will never have what it matters,and I,the one who wants everything,once had the most valuable thing." she grins.

Wrath remained where he was, quiet and secluded from the other Thralls. Though, he had to admit their bickering was getting on his nerves. It seemed so...pointless. Stupid and a waste of time.
He fidgets slightly, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a pack of cigerettes. One left....damn. He places it in his mouth and lights it with a small lighter.

Jericho nodded and watched the scene before him:
Clearly Greed knew Lust... perhaps they were old friends? Weird coincidence for them to meet up here again...
Pride worried him a little, he knew their bitchy little mouths seemed to have a way of pissing anyone off. They had way of finding out someone's soft spots and poking them REALLY hard, even when they don't know the person at all!
Wrath however was fortunately still quietly resting against the wall... he was also worried that he could snap on them any moment if they annoyed him too much with their bickering...
Is this really the team the Queen wanted?

Jericho raised an eyebrow 'Immortality? We're already invincible and we can heal like its nobody's business... but true immortality? Like a FULL Demon? How... enviable... immortality... another stepping stone on my trail to True Power"
Jericho had both a hungry and sad look in his eyes...
Mar 23, 2012 7:52 PM
Lena turns another page. "Immortality? A fate I wouldn't wish upon even my worst enemy. Who would want to suffer for all of eternity?" She says to Jericho. "Greed, I will assume you are not as stupid and that you mean that your bloodline has been continued. I'm a little too young for that. Maybe in ten years."

Jericho is about to say something, but suddenly a the room deafened and everyone seemed a littl on edge as carressing and loving voice filled the chamber:
"Children... there is no need to bicker with one and other, if you wish to have throats to tear out... I shall provide them for you"
At her voice every Thrall in the room dropped to their knees as her form grew from the shadows near a pillar and she glided over into the center of the half circle the group created.
Here she was, their lady and goddess: All hail the Red Queen...

Wrath moves in line with the others, dropping down to one knee the moment his Queen entered the throne room. He had disposed of his cigerette, stubbing it against his arm.
His fist was placed on the floor, with his other arm behind him. He kept his head low, bowed to his Monarch.

Jericho... no, Envy was on his knees as well before his patron and savior...
The Red Queen beheld them all and smiled lovingly at them all, like mother whose child had just come home from school and should her an A on their test.
She then approached each of them in turn and said "Sons and daughters of sin... there is no need to kneel before me" She spoke to each of them in turn as she walked along the line they had made and bidded them to rise...
"Pride, you may rise... there is no need to humble yourself more than nescessary. You've impressed me enough already"
"Greed, you may rise... and you may keep your ambitions for fame and fortune alive"
"Lust, you may rise... you may experience what ever pleasure you so desire"
"Envy, you may rise... and may never feel powerless ever again"
"Wrath, you may rise... and may others tremble at the very mention or whisper of your presense"
"Gluttony, you may rise... and may you find pleasure in your pallet with out limitations"
She looked at them all with childish chastisement and said "I may be your Queen and Creator... but you all don't need to lower yourselves so much before me. I love you all, and you are my family... and my family shouldn't need to prostrate yourselves before me"/i]
