Nightfall: Chapter 2
Two years after the events of Dream Drop Distance, the Darkness became so great that it swallowed the worlds, locking them away within its merciless abyss.
Twilight Town, now covered in eternal night, stands as one of last Sanctuaries of Light. It is where players begin their journey.
Ever resourceful, the Moogles have created a safe place for refugees. They have charged the Denizens of Light with finding Castle Oblivion: it holds a key to the puzzle of the lost worlds.
But within the dark shadows of the sanctuary world a powerful dark force still looms, waiting to strike. Each survivor must choose whether to go to Castle Oblivion or stay behind to protect the world from the dragon that lurks in the shadows.

Alias stepped through the Dark portal that Ansem had made, He looked around the room he had walked into, it was a large library filled with books. He sighed softly "It will take ages to find a book that might even glance the subject of my stone..." He said letting his fingers reach up and touch the stone in his pendant, "I wish I had some music..." He said softly, and then the stone glowed faintly and the suddenly a pair of ear buds were in his ears, he looked at the stone with surprise, but soon his surprise was forgotten when one of his favorite songs began to play and he smiled. If the music would last, he wouldn't mind through the books for a while. And so began his search, he began looking for the section that might contain the knowledge he seeks.
[this is here to show how Alias will discover something about himself, it is open to RP but if there is no one else I will post what he finds at a later date]

There was a touch of insanity that characterized the air, perhaps from the book being read by a certain Heartless hanging about. He indulged himself with a good horror every once in a while to keep himself going without necessarily wanting to hunt down hearts. The lucky winner today was The String of Pearls: A Romance, a penny dreadful that was about a certain barber who killed countless and a woman cooked them into meat pies... While he read, a Shadow, as always, found itself next to the humanoid Heartless, being stroked as if it were his lapdog. The Heartless' canines tore into an apple lazily, the only thing he could really taste besides that of a heart...
And then something changed in the air.
Someone was deposited into the library via Dark Corridor. It was human all right, male, by the feel of it, but there was something else there as well. A touch of magic?
Braig was determined to find out.
The Shadow's antennae twitched and the Demented Shot was sure that it was hungry. He ordered it to go away. If it was a meal, Braig was sure to have it all for himself, but then he figured that food wouldn't just show up on the doorstep for no reason. The Big Man probably wanted the boy here.
He had straight brown hair and violet eyes that glanced from here to there, looking for a book. He scanned each row as if the answer would magically appear for him. Braig thought that he'd have an idea of where each subject was, so he might as well help him. Perhaps he'd get to indulge himself later. To distract himself, he continued to munch on the apple. The book was left open, and in his head still spun the horrific words... Braig approached the boy and said with a soft laugh,
"Now what could you be looking for in a big scary Heartless stronghold, hm?"

Alias had switched his mood as he had searched taking on a more quirky song, if you could call it that. "Seems an awful waste... Such a nice, plump frame Wot's 'is name has... Had... Has! Nor it can't be traced..." Alias sang along softly with the song as he looked from book to book, searching for anything that might contain something helpful. "Bus'ness needs a lift, Debts to be erased... Think of it as thrift, As a gift, If you get my drift!" He continued to sing. He sensed the man, he was a dark one, but Alias didn't mind, half of his heart was dark, the other was light, he had been raised around darkness, so he didn't care, he didn't figure the man was interested in him. "Seems an awful waste... I mean, with the price of meat What it is, When you get it, If you get it... Good, you got it!" HE sang, doing a small spin noticing the man had come closer. But he didn't have time to talk, he needed- He had found it, He rushed to a book and quickly snatched it off the shelves. The book was titled 'Milpreves, Druid Stones, and Other Magical Devices.'. As he looked over the old leather bound cover he saw the man had stopped near him, he looked at him out of the corner of his eyes and saw his mouth moving.
He then turned to the man and pulled out his ear buds and said "What was that" Sorry, but I couldn't hear you." He said politely to the man.

You can't tell me that boy's been hangin' around Arlene! She even got me singin' those songs...
"Ah, I asked what you were looking for, kid. It's not often I see prey wandering around in the midst of their predators. But don't worry..." A dark look cast over Braig, as he was sincere but the threat was still present as long as he was hungry and was concious of the fact, "...I won't bite." He smiled with sickening sweetness and bit into the apple once more. If he could keep his mind occupied, maybe he could keep from stealing this boy's heart. As always, he was hungry... Starving, really...
"I'm curious, did the boss bring you here? Name's Braig, second of the Dark XII numerically. You're a bit lucky that it was me and not someone else... Ain't safe around these parts. Either way, you've got guts, kid. I like your style. Could I have a name?" The kid was odd, indeed, singing those songs that he always heard Arlene sing. He assumed that they were from a musical or something. But the thing was, he was singing in the midst of a Heartless lair. That took some courage, to say the very least, and Braig particularly liked that attribute.

"Prey? Who made you the big bad wolf?" He said with a grin. "And as it so happens, I like a good bite every now and then." He said and looked at the man.
"As for what I'm looking for I may have already found it..." He said. "And if by 'Boss' you mean a certain tall, dark, and white haired man by the name of Ansem, then yes. And what do you mean it isn't safe? It seems like a perfectly normal place, kinda reminds me of home." He said softly "Or at least half of it. And the name is Alias." He then looked around the library. "I don't suppose you could point me in the direction of a reading table?" He asked the man.
He looked at the man, noting the patch over his eye, and the strange yellow color of the uncovered one, he could feel the man's hunger but didn't care, he didn't seem so bad.

"Heh. It's almost like you're not afraid of being right in the center of a Heartless stronghold. The table's over there." The Demented Shot gestured toward the table located to the right of where they stood. He trotted over himself and took a seat on the table top at the far end. His yellow eyes followed every step Alias took. Hunger was a very tangible thing now. Braig wasn't really too sure why he starved himself anymore. Perhaps, just a taste...
Ha, who am I kidding? Ansem brought the kid here. I'll be sure to hunt the next time I go out.
"So, what brought all of this on, kid? Ansem is a bit of a mystery to me, and it would amuse me to know what in the worlds he was thinking. I would hate it if some big bad Heartless went and ambushed you, so if you'd like, I'll make sure you make it home, yeah?" The smirk that twisted Braig's lips was unforgettable as he showed his teeth and especially so his canines. So was the Heartless symbol printed across his chest, barely peeking out from underneath his shirt. He scratched underneath his eyepatch softly. "I wouldn't call myself the big bad wolf... I'm pretty laid-back. Consider it a blessing for you, kid."

"I'm not" He said as he walked and sat near Braig and sat down opening the book, he felt the man's eyes on him, but didn't mind it. He heard the other question and the statement that followed. "I wound up in a place, traverse town, I think it was, but anyway I met him there, we talked he seemed nice, interesting, and I told him about my stone, he said I could use this library to research it." HE said and looked up at the man's smile it was kinda cute, in a serial killer kinda way, but cute none the less, he was handsome, even with the scars and patch, he wondered what he used to look like. "Protect me? Get me home safe? That would be nice if I had a home." He said looking at the man's yellow eye, and patch. "What about you, what is your story?" He said noticing the symbol. 'Tattoo? Hot...' Alias thought softly. "I suppose your one of Ansem's...Friends?" He asked softly.

"Hah, I guess you could say that. Ansem and I... we've known each other for many years. That's a complicated matter, though." It was complicated, indeed. He always would look at his superior and remember a young man who looked much like him. The name of this man had faded away into the depths of his memory. He remembered his Keyblade, though. It was still an obsession he secretly harbored. How he would love to have the blade for his own...
"I come from a place called Radiant Garden. Met some old man there who enlisted me to help this guy turn to darkness. Both guys had this blade that looked like a key... What they call a Keyblade. Both were incredibly powerful. I battled the younger man and he gave me my scar and took out one of my eyes." Braig gestured to each injury absentmindedly. He never really cared that he had a scar or only had one eye. He really couldn't imagine himself without them, really. The only downside was that more often than not, he was called Scarface. "So the old man tells me to help him out again. Soon after that I'm in a different world. There's two other people with a Keyblade there--a woman and a boy. The boy was practically frozen like a popsicle, so I went ahead and battled the woman to buy some time for the old man. I lost, but the old man obviously had the right amount of time, so I went back to Radiant Garden. Next thing I know, there's a kid in the middle of the courtyard. My old master took 'im in. I promised my loyalty to him and together, of course with the help of the other Apprentices, we experimented on the heart. Next thing I know, I'm wandering the Dark Realm as a Heartless for years. At first I was a bit mindless, but as my memories came back to me, I took my old shape... Ansem came along and promised me Kingdom Hearts. And as you can tell by my presence, I took him up on his offer. That was pretty much the beginning of everything."
The Heartless noticed that Alias was looking at the symbol on his chest and laughed in spite of himself. "Markings of a Heartless, kid." He looked to his gloves, which were marked with the very same insignia.

"No offense, but it sounds like you got the short end of the stick, or the long end stuck in an uncomfortable place." He said and looked at the gloves then back up to the man "Cute" He said when the man explained the markings. He had been looking through the book while he talked to the man and he came upon something interesting, his lips curled into a grin that said 'I know something you don't know'. He closed the book and slid it away across the table, no longer needing it. "So Kingdom Hearts, What is it, and What do you guys want it? And how do you plan to achieve it?" He said in a clam tone, as if asking the time of day.

Apparently Alias had found what he needed, because he gave Braig a sort of mocking grin. He got a look at the book for the first time and inferred that it must have been about some magic object. Alias continued the conversation by asking a simple question. It was about the Dark XII's plans. The Demented Shot was kind of stunned by this. He could answer the majority of the question but he assumed that telling a total stranger their grand master plan would mark tomorrow as the day Braig died.
Truth be told, Braig wasn't ready to die quite yet.
"Kingdom Hearts, is, in effect, the heart of all worlds. One may consider it to be the heart of everything. And what do we Heartless do? We consume hearts. It'll be like the best party... ever. Of course, we want to expand the Darkness as well, get some more forces to help our efforts. Since I don't know you well, I can't give you any details about our plans, but I imagine that you can put two and two together, Alias." Yellow eyes glinted at the boy, that sign of submission to Darkness.
Post by jorgewaggoner on Jul 16, 2011 22:43:27 GMT -4
Alias smiled at the man. "So...Making Kingdom Hearts, Will it make you guys, like, get your hearts back?" He said looking at the man, examining the symbol on his gloves. "Or, would it stop your hunger? And, about expanding the darkness, how are you planning on going about it? If I had to guess, I would assume your planing on brute force, correct?" He asked curiously. "Or maybe you are planning on convincing people to join by other means? And even if you can 'expand the darkness', even if you cover everything in darkness, what then? What will you do once you 'win'?" He asks softly, interested in what Braig though and what he wanted in all of this.
Post by xthelonelypuppetx on Jul 17, 2011 22:35:33 GMT -4
"We use a variety of methods to get what we want, Alias. Whether that's force, simply just hunting about to feed ourselves, or through the power of persuasion... Every one of those actions helps our forces grow. Of course, one may lose their heart in the process, but who's counting?" Braig asked, with a touch of darkness to his tone. Feeding himself was practically helping the Dark XII, was it not? Of course, there was the second part to his question...
Now, now, what to tell the kid...?
There could be so many ways to answer that question. What would be the easiest for him, however?
"What do you think people do when they have absolute control over all the worlds, Mr. Alias?" The question was simple enough.
Post by jorgewaggoner on Jul 17, 2011 22:52:52 GMT -4
"Once you have absolute control, you do one of two things, you either become a selfish dictator and drain the people of everything, leading to a slow and painfull death for all involved, including yourself, or you become a ruler and manage things and run your kingdom, but that is once you have complete control you could also do nothing and just let everything fall apart, but how does that benefit you?" He says thinking of the different things you could do. He looked at Braigs smile and grinned as well.
"But there is a problem for you, there is more than one of you, and you all must hand some hidden agenda, so before any of you have control you will have to kill off each other so that there will be one, like-minded ruling force" He said looking up at Braig.
"By the way, what do you enjoy in your spare time?" He asked

Braig chuckled softly. This kid was pretty sharp for his age. If he'd asked any other kid, they would have given him a generic answer. He liked it. It marked intelligence in Alias. Perhaps he wasn't so bad, after all. The Heartless wouldn't mind it if this kid was on their side, Heartless or not. Perhaps he was as witty in battle as he was outside of it.
"Spare time, you say? Well, a variety of things. Spare time usually means that I'm not as focused on anything, and my hunger gets more..." As Braig spoke of his hunger, the need to feed came back to him... He needed to do something. Soon. Before he lost a grip right here and ended up just consuming this kid's heart. "Well... I enjoy a bit of reading. Walkin' around. Finding high places to just hang out in. I do enjoy pickin' up some women from time to time." The idea made Braig chuckle again.
The scene was already going through his head.
"Oh Braig, you can have my heart forever."
"You have no idea, dear. But you could call it that if it makes you feel any better."
Post by jorgewaggoner on Jul 18, 2011 16:27:01 GMT -4
Alias notices Braig's expression change, he wonders what he was thinking about, but decides it's better not to ask. "High places? Like where?" He asks softly looking up into the yellow eyes, even if they weren't looking back, he liked looking at them.
He then thinks about Braig's hunger... He had heard rumors about Creatures that drop a special 'heart' when they are killed. He wondered if Braig needed to find these creatures, He then had a horrid though 'Would Braig starve without nourishment?'.
"Braig...Your hunger...where does it come from?" HE asks softly.
