ZOCOM wrote:The tower was in turmoil, the discovery of the Elder Lich's dust was quite the kick to the beehive as all the Templars assigned to the Lich were now looking all for the culprit that did such a thing. It was obvious that the annoying intrusion of Lewis didn't tip off the Templars to Heimrich's presence, Lewis wasn't going to argue that he was nothing more than a puppet to Zocoms higher power, it was a fact that he very much hated, not as much as he hated the fact that he can't help his own brother... But for reasons unknown to him he was forbidden from saving Duncan. Samantha however he was allowed to save but that was all...

Albus was sat in his chair as all the excitement rustled the tower, as he heard Heimrich's voice he looked up from the ages old letter that he was reading. The elderly man looks to the young man, feeling such an otherworldly feeling from the boy that only filled him with calm, feeling nothing of fear as he looked surprised. Though that wasn't to say that questions did not rush through his mind "Good morning Heimrich. It's been quite a while since you and I last spoke." He says pushing himself and the chair back so that he may stand "I take it you're the one who took out that deplorable Lich without anyone knowing? Officially I need to chastise you, though unofficially... I approve." He says with a plain smile, unsure of what this conversation may hold for his future.

It was no secret that Duncan was only slipping further and further with each surge forth that Vengeance made in his mission to further his masters goals. Along with trying his best to get Duncan to fight back and bargain with him into joining with him... But the Zoconian was too stubborn, wanting to either utilise Vengeance or be rid of him altogether. But such a thing was impossible now, their bodies too intertwined. There was no way to brute force them apart because of how identical their souls were now, there was no way to force Duncan from Vengeance without severely damaging them both...

The spear that Hiemrich dodged lodges into the ground before turning to pure mist, expanding his domain behind Heimrich. With the fist fe drops of fresh crimson that become exposed to the air, Vengeance's eyes fixate of the droplets of fresh blood before it all snapped in the back of his head More... MOOOOORE!! HE'S STILL BREATHING!! mentally screamed the beast dug deeply into the divine wellspring that he had yet to really tap into. A cry of insanity and victory as he finally spilt some of Heimrich's blood, not to bleed him dry.

Though not even he who felt both of Heimrich's knuckles strike into his side, throwing him off of as Heimrich weaved around his mindless charge. The beast came skidding to a halt before he vanishes, reappearing in the closest pocket of his 'domain' to Heimrich so that he could run him through with his spear.


Sam has continued to silently watch, allowing himself to become absorbed in the changes in Hiemrich. Trying to learn what he can, finding an explanation. Just what this new transformation no, state of being means. So much so that he almost completely misses the fact that Duncan, or rather Vengeance, has long since broken the barrier keeping this event contained. In a moment of clarity Sam breaks from his self imposed spell over Heimrich's status and immediately crouches down, placing both hands upon the ground as a new barrier rises to perfectly replace the first, only far stronger this time around as Sam thinks internally. Hiemrich...I can't believe he's grown so much. And think he's packing enough power to break that barrier . Sam glances to his side to Scotti, looking forward after some moments, standing back up and walking to the side calmly. His expression is a mix of being somber and furious as he seemingly stares down Atticus with killing intent. While some may thing this is the case, the aged werewolf could tell Sam is not staring him down, but glaring through him. And there's only one thing behind Atticus that the even further aged vampire could be staring at- A certain meddling Titan God, quite the distance away, outside the barrier.

Atticus just happens to be in the way.

As he rotates around the border of Vengeance and Hiemrich's fight Sam's vision does not break, even though there are plenty of obstacles in the way that are preventing actual line of sight to Salem, yet his distance from the God does not change. The angle may change but the distance does not, implying Sam doesn't seem to presently intend to do anything. After a short time rotating he stops, finding what he was looking for, a clear enough path through all the things in the way that he can see clear to Salem in full view. He does nothing- Just glares. If nothing else one thing is safe to take away from Sam's present actions. Salem is now on a list, and the reasons are many.
