A slender woman dressed in a black pinstripe pant suit casually walked down the streets of the Capital of Clover. Her hair seemed to flow in the early spring wind with a sense of ease. Strapped to her waist was a long sword wrapped in a sheath of pure black material. On the back of her waist rested a grimoire that was wrapped in a black and white cloth. The female’s skin was light complected, to the point that she almost looked like she was made from porcelain. As she walked down the street she would reach into her pocket and pull out an oddly shaped circular device that appeared to be made of pure silver. Upon pressing a small button to the side of the device, it would pop open showing a collection of numbers and symbols. One of the symbols seemed to be lightly glowing which sparked a faint smile across the woman’s face. She placed the object back into her pocket and continued on her path down the simple cobble road filled with various shops and Clover citizens all seeming happy, full of life; oh how they would learn.
She stopped midway in the street, a massive shadow seemed to cover this block completely. The woman would lifted her head and gaze at a massive structure that stood before her. “Balgon Prison…” She would mummer in a low tone. A small child would peer at the woman from an alleyway. The woman’s gaze shifted quickly like a predator watching its prey. The small child’s face instantly became flushed and they would dart back deeper into the alley. Once again the woman would bring out the silver object and look at its contents. Multiple symbols now glowed a pale purple color. The time was near for her plot to start. The sky soon became overcast with some sort of shadow covering the entire city’s area. The shadow of Balgon Prison became lost in the shade. Before a minute even passed the whole city was under a thick film of shadows. The Royal Palace and Magic Knight Headquarters seemed to be covered with an even thicker shadow than the rest of the city. A shadow so thick that it was impossible to see through its veil.
“Well, there’s my cue…” The woman placed the silver object back into her pocket and proceeded to walk towards the prison’s outermost wall. She placed her hands on the structure. Her grimoire soon would float beside her. Darkness seemed to slowly coat the wall before her. Like a vine of ivy it would spread until it had covered the entire wall. She would remove her hand and admire her work. With a simple shove, she pushed into the wall and watched as it crumbled before her eyes. The dust mixed with the dark lighting really caused the scene to be something like that from a nightmare.
She would step into the prison, quickly rushed at by several Crimson Lion members that had been acting as guards for the prisoners inside. In a move that was too fast for the lions to even watch with their eyes, her sword was unsheathed and slicing right through the two men’s necks before being resheathed in a single fluid moment. She did not miss a beat and kept walking forward through the prison. Upon coming to the inner wall which would lead to the prison’s most dangerous ward, she would stop once more and look at this wall the same as the last. Even from a slight distance she could sense the powerful magic running through the structure, suppressing the magic of those inside. Checking her silver object’s symbols once again, she noted that a single of the symbols had already lost its light. Her head svilled to peer back through the wall that she had just destroyed as if she was expecting the arrival of a last minute hero. Her eyes pierced through the darkness for a moment before her attention snapped back to the wall before her. “He’s already on the move. I’ll need to speed up this plan much quicker than anticipated…”
She broke into a sprint towards the wall and quickly brought out her sword. With darkness magic coating the blade she slashed the wall in several places creating a perfect square. Within a moment the stone slabs that formed the wall fell to the ground creating a large exit for those inside. One by one prisoners walked out from the building. Among them were some of the most violent and deadly criminals that Clover had ever seen. As the courtyard filled with this lot the woman caused a shadow of magic to form underneath her and slowly ascend her above the criminals before her. “I’ve freed you from the grasp of Nero and his pet lion, Lysander. The riches of Clover lie in this city and are yours for the taking. Do as you wish, you are free men now. Those that wish to gain fame and power may do so by pledging their loyalty and life to his Highness, King Diamond. Those that do not may do as they please, but note that if they take arms against us they will be met with the same fate as all citizens of Clover.”
With that simple but insightful speech she spurred the shadow beneath her to acende at a faster rate towards the highest tower of the prison, a place where prisoner’s grimoires were locked away. Upon reaching here a blast of dark magic released from her hands destroying the entire top of the prison. Within mere moments various grimoires of all shapes, sizes, and colors would fly towards their masters and mistresses. “Well that should provide a bit of fun for the time being.” She looked at her silver device once again and noted that minus the original signal that she noted earlier being dimmed all the others were still glowing. “Hm, they must not fully be aware on how The Veil works yet. I doubt Nero would leave their King’s side during this event but he’s nephew is more than likely trying to figure out its secrets. At least communication is cut with the outside world and the Lion isn’t roaming the streets. The Golden Boy may be strong but he is not as wise as his uncle. It will take him some time to fully figure out what is happening.” She spoke to herself as she floated eerily in the sky above the prison.
Her book would flap open to a new page where its writing glowed a deep purple hue. Within moments black figures seemed to form around her, numbering in nearly a dozen in total. They appeared to be figures draped in black with scythes made of dark magic resting in their hands, spitting images of the Grim Reaper. “Go forth my shades, go kill the nobles of Clover. We shall cripple them through their wallets and dignity.” The shades would fly at great speeds splitting into various directions, all headed toward a noble house of some sort or another. Would there be any Knights among the people below that would be capable of defending the citizens of the shades and the prisoners? Diamond’s call to war would be heard loudly around the Kingdom of Clover today for this act was but just one of the many assaults that they would be launching today. Before the sun set on this kingdom the streets would be covered in the warm blood of her citizens and the Magic Knights would be thrown into a chaos from which they would never return. Her act, The New Moon, was underway. The Moonstone General of Diamond would not be sticking around to be in this fight for much longer, she had bigger and better plans to see to in the near future. Her head was not destined to be mounted on a spike today.
