PostSubject: Under New Management Part 5[ Land Claim, Iskra]   Wed Jun 22, 2011 4:39 am

After converting several bits of land using his power Jack was probably what you could put down as bushed. And yet, he still wanted more. A few hours rest and he was back on the job. Ready to start some more kin slaying. Burning the demons not under his command yet into piles of insignificant ash. However it seemed that upon his arrival in the area, there was going to be a bit of a problem. Word seemed to have spread of his plans, and of course about his tactics in delivering his little eviction notices. Most of the demons seemed to have taken off into hiding. Or at least were covering their tracks up very well. So. It was time for Jack to bring in his own blood hound. Or in this case, Hyena. Enter the Matriarch of the higher planes. Or at elast, higher than this place was. Iskra. The girl liked spending most of her time in her animal form. And he didn't doubt that she was going to be adept at tracking. Besides, this would give him a chance to work on that little bond of theirs that had developed during the fight. Doing so might just prove useful in the future for him. Jack could have of course simply transformed himself. However, the process was still tiring upon him. And he wanted to retain most of his strength for purging this area of such creatures.

Jack bent down and lifted up somme of the soil in the ground. Rubbing it between gloved fingers, as he thought it was dry, acrid like the rest of hell. Not a place where one could expect crops to grow. Howeve rin between the fragments of soil, there was flecks of black stone. Obsidian. Volcanic glass. There was the possibility of a larger deposit in the area. Which meant that there might have been some market for it. Not that he was actually interested in trade himself. However holding such a resource would be...useful.

A cackle broke through the general cacophony of brimstone and chaos that was Barathrum Regnum. The creature it came from, a hyena of unusual size, that is, taller at the shoulder than your average tiger and more than twice as heavy, had a white, spotted coat. It provided poor camouflage against the red darkness of the atmosphere, but she felt no need to hide. To her left was the open air and to her right as well. Indeed, many demons who might have had a chance against her had they swarmed her were simply absent and unaccounted for.

Her timing was strange in that she appeared when she was needed and no earlier. Often she simply dropped by to say hello to her ally, Jack, at his strange and interesting home, but his departure from that spot to go conquer more distant areas eventually made her get up to go find him.

And find him she did. Tracking was a bit harder here, but it was certainly possible. The baked stone left very few tracks and the warm, unwelcoming ground held few scents for any length of time. Indeed, she was learning to track people and things through something more permanent than a finger print and far more persistent: a spiritual presence. Indeed, hell itself of all places tended to hold a memory and impression of those who passed through it, and she wanted to learn to replicate her ability to sense it on Terra.

But she found her friend at length and, with another cackle of greeting, drew near him. "You're... usually not out this far..." she tilted her head to the side and sat. "Did something happen?"

The Hyena demon had arrived, and just in time. After her queries Jack remained silent, thumbing over the small shards of the volcanic glas in hishands. A black glass. It seemed awfully appropriate something of this appeareance would make itself abundant in the plains of the under world. However, he found it would likely be...rude. To his ally to keep silent for much longer than thought was neccisary. He rose up from his kne, pouring the soil and shards of obsidian back down to the ground. Turning his head to see if he could hear, see or sense anything. "Things change on a constant basis here Iskra. Perhaps it is not so much so in Terra but here one is under constant struggle against that change shifting against you". It was said almost distantly. As if he was thinking about something else at the time.

" How to say it in a langauge you would understand...I'm here to...take territory from other demons....I'm here to hunt them...kill them...or drive them out...either one...".

To him it honestly didn't matter which oen they did. Although killing seemed preferable. With expansion such as he had in mind there would be no room for error. Other demons could plot revenge. Band together. " Alternatively I suppose I could make them subservant to me, but then our kind are never known as the most trust worthy in that position". He turned and tilted his head. " Well. Whilst your here I suppose you could help with the hunt".

So Jack wished to claim some land for himself. It made sense. After all, she had the domain of the thunder rats under her basic control and had his help with that. It only made sense for her to assist him in getting into a similarly desirable position over an array of lesser spirits.

She lowered her head for the moment, opting to remain in her more bestial form for the task ahead.

"Well, I think we should at least offer them subservience," she began, with her natural biases for a rank-oriented clan. "If they're all weak and you're strong, then they will understand that their best option is to follow you and to please you. It will make conquering a larger area more convenient."

As the beast spoke, she began pacing in a small circle that soon became a spiral. Nothing about her trot was swift. She carefully scrutinized each patch of dirt, once even stopping to eat some dark thing she'd happened across with a few short jerks of her head: a disembodied head of a lava toad.

A few more paces and she stopped, suddenly, her entire frame stiff as she inhaled slowly. Once. Twice. Three times... and smiled.

Cautiously, she scraped at the arid dirt with a single forepaw. A few of the sweeping strokes revealed some ashen, burnt thing.

"Scales." The hyena tilted her head to the side. "Some belly-crawling creature... a snake maybe?"

She sniffed and walked in a shorter spiral around the thing until she happened upon a similar patch of skin. "It was shedding..." she murmured, her head moving to and fro as she walked a straight line from the second patch. "There should be another around... here!"

Her search was rewarded with more discarded carapace fragments.

He watched Iskra as she, for the lack of a better word began to track. It was a normal animal thing andd yet the way she went about it he couldn't help but...examine. Just what was going on. One thing leading to another clues in an investigation. Perhpas she would be able to hire herself out as some sort of spiritual detective. Then again knowing what she was like that was going to be impossible by any means.Still. She advised him that he was to leave them alive. Give them the option to surrender and become his bitches. Er. Subjects. He didn't like the idea though. Demons he knew were back stabbing bastards. He was after all one of them. And the only reason he found that he could place a small ammount of trust in Iskra was because well. She practically wasn't a demon. She had been raised on Terra. She was more an animal than anything else. The taint in her veins didn't seem to go much beyond fueling the bestial instincts that were already present within her. " I suppose you are right in saying such". He nodded. Yes. Jack would give ISkras suggestion a go at least. For now. If things went tits up after all he could always just kill them later.

It seemed though. She had found something. A kill. Scales. She suggested some kind of snake like creature had made the area its home. However, scales covered a wide variety of things. Lizard demons. Even. Dragons. He shuddered at the thought. He knew that. Some demons did have the ego to take on draconian form. And usually. They had the bang to back up their ego.

" Hm. Good. Lets keep up the trail...".

The large beast needed no encouragement. Tracking wasn't really something she'd ever practiced much prior, despite her bestial form and nature. She never really had to practice it. Stumbling on some unwary herd or dead carcass really only required quiet walking and a keen eye. There were creatures in the desert who used tracking, and she knew that the humans had tame wolves, dogs, that could find things solely by scent. It seemed like a useful ability in scarce times.

The trail wound on, a sidewinding thing that didn't take her very far. Rather, the scales had scraped off in a zig-zag pattern.

Iskra found it fascinating. It was like reading a book with her nose... an ancient text with fading pages, if in fact she knew what ancient literacy was like.

Every time she thought she lost her way, a simple spiral around fixed it. Indeed, the trail was rather fresh, despite the dead, dusty markers that traced it. The scales had a pleasant body smell as most living things were. There was another smell... a sort of musky, wafting odor that she attributed to maleness, though since it was a lizard entity that meant that either she was ascribing a mammalian scent to it or its true form was humanoid. He wasn't old. Age had its own smell, and he lacked it, but he wasn't an adolescent either.

So involved did she get with this guessing and sorting of scents that she fell directly into the darkness of a moat.

There were spikes at the bottom, but fortunately, she managed to catch herself on her icy vulture's wings before it was too late.

The feel of the hunt felt almost familiar to Jack, almost natural. As if in some past forgotten life he had been in a similar situation. Weapon in hand and hound on the chase of his prey. he grin tugging at his face only mirroring the enjoyment of it that he felt within his soul. Iskra herself seemed to be enjoying most of this little game. And Jack imagined to himself that it was much like playing hide and seek for the animal. After all she didn't really think in the same terms as he. His thought processes were oddly more akin to a humans. He knew that this was likley because in his past life he had been precisely that. Human.Iskra however, if she was to be believed had been spawned. Born into this existance rather than simply....waking up. Jack. Didn't really know if he'd been human before the dawn. Or was a demon even then. But to say that he had once been human. In his bones. His flesh His blood. There was understanding. It felt. Right.

And. Thats when Iskra fell. Honeestly Jack had been too captivated in his own thoughts. Had it not been for the blurr of downfall that came he would never have seen it coming. However it seemed that. The creature survived yet. Adn hadn't been taken away by her own senseless movements.

" Ah...you have to be a little more careful in this place...the human world has its own dangers...here...much much more...."

Jack looked around. Then down into the moat. " Don't think it went down there do you?"

Iskra was embarrassed. If she had been in humanoid form and her skin was as far as Jack's, she might have been openly and involuntarily blushing. As things were, however, her facial expressions were concealed by a layer of fur and a deathtrap for a mouth. When she landed, shedding feathers of ice that melted off and reformed themselves on her wings as soon as they were lost, her mannerisms held only dignity, a dignity undiminished by the warning words of the pride demon.

"It'll take a little more than a hole and a few sticks," she commented, shaking herself off and allowing her wings to dissolve. Outside of the passive threat of the spikes, she couldn't perceive anything harmful in the area, so she cautiously made her way back to the lip of the profoundly deep moat, studying the large gaps between the sharpened logs. "If he is hiding down there, it's pretty smart. No large demons would be able to make it down in there unless they were able to assume a smaller form. If here were some... large, stupid person chasing him down into that, they wouldn't be accustomed to the dark and would probably impale themselves in their hunger." She squinted. "A lot of the onis who live down here are dumb, tactically speaking. You're smart, but they aren't. If we went down there carefully, we could probably search around at the base of those sticks. They're really far apart."

He liked the way that she worded that one. Tactically speaking. It caused the odd tug of the cheek that would usually bring a grin, but other things on the mind at the moment. Indeed, if something had gone down and lived there then it was a decent enough place to hide from the larger more troublesome oni. Such as himself. Then again he wasn't really one to chase small Oni into moats of spikes in an attempt to find them. " Well if thats the case, you know what they say". He gestured towards the hole. " Ladies first". Noted however that. Had Iskra been in her human form and wearing some kind of skirt. Likely that little mannerism would have been thrown out the window and he would have decended into the pit first. Albiet. Very. Very. Slowly.

As for the creature that lived dow here he had to wonder if the creature had actually been the one to erect the spikes in the first place. If so it held some ammount of accountable intellect. Depending on just how much it actually had he might be able to put the creature to some use within his new little kingdom. Doing precisely what Iskra suggested doing. Dominating rather than destroying. Still Jacks nature and history with Oni drew him more towards the latter. But for once he was willing to give the plan of the Matriarch a go.

The hyena grinned confidently, or at least as close an expression to a confident grin as could come across the face of an animal, and gathered her feet below her.

The spikes were sufficiently large that, now that she knew where they were, when she jumped, she was able to land with her claws in one at an angle. From there it was the simple matter of edging down backwards into the darkness.

For what appeared to be simple sticks stuck into the ground, they were surprisingly long. That would at least explain how they disappeared into absolute darkness. She must've been edging down for at least two minutes before her foot hit something other than more wood.

Unfortunately, that thing she hit was scales. Several of them from different sources.

Apparently this was a snake pit.

Not that she was particularly afraid of snakes outside of the immediate and instinctive concerns about venom and the fact that this was a snake pit in hell as opposed to a relatively benign snake pit in the surface world, but she was compelled to scoot rather quickly back up the log.

And so the two decended down into the pit with spikes at the bottom. The journey wasn't that long and honestly Iskra seemed almost too over enthusiastic about the whole thing. Thats of course before they saw that the pic was in fact. Moving. Well not moving precisely. But the things within were. Snakes. Again, not really snakes but demons. Lesser demons. Taking the forms of the serpants. Perhaps it was one of thes creatures that had once travelled to the human world and got snakes such a bad reputation with humans. It seemed Iskra was all too hesitant to go in there. Venom and such abound. So Jack thought of an alternative solution that would help with clearing things out. Subservant demons could be useful. But usually ones that took on such small shapes and well. Hadn't bothered much with the two larger demons heading down into their home. Well suffice to say Jack wat this point doubted their intellect.

He reached out a hand, channeling his magic. Murmering a few words under his breath before what seemed like a crimson mist rose up from the snake pit. It was like a fog. enveloping the matriarch and Jack completly. Covering them both in the blood of the snakes below. When the red mist cleared. The snakes would not be moving. Nor would they really seem much like snakes anymore. But an assortment of dried up husks with the shapes of snakes. With that. Jack jumped down. Using his powers of flight to stall the fall and move between the spikes to a safe landing zone.

" Well that takes care of that problem".

Iskra remained where she clung until the literal bloodbath had finished. "Are they dead?" she asked rather redundantly before realizing the pointlessness of the question.

The demonic snakes couldn't be alive, or so it seemed. They were like raisins... snake raisins... delicious ones, she decided after she'd flipped one up into her mouth and swallowed it with a brief tilt of her head. Indeed, she consumed several dozen of them in this manner without the slight bit of mastication before she realized that there was something under the mass.

She nosed aside a couple more corpses to reveal what looked like a half-scaled person below the once-writhing mass. Person, for the effects of the spell made the gender pretty difficult to discern. Its pithy skeleton and sparse skin were draped protectively over a small clutch of eggs that, bloodless, had been unaffected by the manifestation of magic.

The hyena leaned back and sat atop the bones after uncovering the little discovery, her brows furrowed and her coat covered in largely ignored blood. In all of her days, she'd never heard of a demon of any description laying an egg, though she supposed it must have been possible. It was likely something she missed from paucity of experience.

"It was a mother?"

The mysteries of the snake pit maintained far more priority in her mind than the simple, immediate questions of, "What in the hells was that spell? By Paike, did he just drain everything in the area but one or two targets of all of their blood? How do you even do that?" that might have occurred to her in the absence of any other interference.

Iskra may have been more interested in the snakes at this point in time, consuming a few of the dried out withered ones. Jack however was maintaining himself in the high of the blood lust. It was an odd spell that one, a thing that he had only recently came up with. There were creatures in the world known as vaspires. Monsters that were created when a human became possessed by a lesser spirit. However it was the very natture of this lesser spirit that had intrigued Jack enough to study its powers. Somehow it was driven by a hunger for human blood. Something that was akin to his own interests in blood magic. It required blood to continue existing. But so long as it continued to consume blood. It was eternal. Jack managed to harvest this talent. Regeneration through blood consumption. And had even made it so that he wouldn't have to tear an enemies throat out with his own teeth to do so. Making it far more useful.

However. The hunger seemed to be something that was hard to get rid of. His hand shaking, covered in the droplets of blood. Iskras voice was little more than a murmer when compared to the almost deafening sound of his own heart beat as he licked the fresh blood from his gloves hand in one swoop. He was however brought back to reality by her question. Nay. Statement. That whatever creature had laid below these snakes. Seemed to be a mother of some sort to a brood of eggs. " Interesting. A demon that gives birth to young is rare....". Then again it occured to him that Iskra may have been more or less the same. For what Jack knew, the main method of Oni and other spirits being born into the world. Was through the death and reincarnation of the souls of the living. A pure born spirit. Was rare.

" Regardless of what it was. It is now dead".

Iskra continued to sit, petrified on the spot. Perhaps these snakes were the woman's previous young. Perhaps this creature had the same goal as her, but was struck down in the process of accomplishing it, drowned in the blood of her own offspring. After all, spiked pits didn't just make themselves. Someone must have erected them. Perhaps when she first conceived her demonic brood, she created this nest to defend them. Perhaps she went to Yavlos herself and gathered these logs, determined to protect her weak and helpless legacy so that it might have time to grow. Perhaps she caught wind of this pride demon's path of destruction, or maybe she was simply afraid in general. Perhaps she had only been in the middle of fortifying the area before death came to claim her.

It was all so sad, this scenario in the hyena spirit's mind as the blood began to crust on her fur. She felt such a kinship with the creature simply because of what this thing had managed to do on its own that she felt the need to give it the same sort of burial rights that she'd give one of her own.

The hyena turned to Jack and nodded. Perhaps it was for the best that she missed his trembling and his bloodthirsty licking. After all, she still considered him a predator because she'd never questioned their relationship. "Yes. I..." Words escaped her. These feelings proved hard to articulate, and after a moment she simply changed her mind. "You know what? I'm going to... eat her. She sort of reminds me of myself, so I think I should send her off right. It'll only take a moment."

Without really waiting for a response, Iskra fell upon the corpse of the creature, ravenously swallowing its dry husk... swallowing, for she only stopped to use her teeth when a bone or a talon or some difficult tendon was involved, which was rather infrequently. The creature had eight legs like a spider and a long tail that stretched out behind it. Where a spider's head and fangs might have been, she was confronted with a pelvis, and from there up the skeleton of a woman with dehydrated leather for a face, stretched open in horror with missing eyes. There wasn't much hair. Only a few occasional snaps marked the progress of her teeth, and it was amazing that she could eat that much at all.

It was odd, Iskra seemed stunned by the whole thing. Only minutes ago the hyena demon had been reeling with excitment and now. This. It was almost as if she regretted coming down here in the first place. She was staring at that husk. The corpse of the creature they had befouled and yet. There was no joy in the success of the hunt. Rather. Just. Depression. Jack himself was still quite pleased with the whole thing. Iskras stuttering nonsense was something that he couldn't bring himself to understand. This demon reminded her of herself? Jack hoped not. After all. This demon was dead. Thats all that mattered. If Iskra was to be like her, then she would end up dead as well. " This is the nature of the Underworld Matriarch...live or die...kill or be killed....hiding only delays the inevitable...". And thats when she fell upon the body. Jack remembered her saying soemthing in the past about consuming her previous clan, giving them a place inside of her. If so, then it must have been considered somewhat of an honour granted to this prey. After all. Thats all Jack saw this demon as. Nothing more. Nothing less. There was no deeper meaning to him. Just another stepping stone onto something greater. Something stronger.

Admittedly however, he could not watch as Iskra devoured the corpse. Despite his own consumption of the blood, eating the rest seemed somewhat. Disgusting to him. But then again, Jack took humanoid form. And despite the main differences of being an Oni. There was always those little things that he took from humans. Still he didn't turn away. Just stood there silently until she was finished devouring the whole thing. " If she reminds you so much of yourself...take those eggs". Jack turned and gestured dismissively.

" After all. They're just going to die if left here....".

Iskra turned her head, slurping down the last bit of galvanized tissue. "The eggs?"

She turned back around and looked at them. Yes, they did look sort of forlorn sitting there. No doubt some demonic creature would have a marvelous, easy meal of the little spirit eggs without her intervention.

It wasn't out of any obligation to the dead snake-spider-thing, but a sort of curiosity and a bit of concern. After all, the monster had worked so hard to protect her legacy. It would be a shame if nobody helped it to continue at all.

So in the normal way, she shifted up to her human form, her skeleton forcing itself upright and her flesh and fur conforming to the shape and attire of a human, save her hair that openly displayed her hyena heritage.

When she stood stable, she stooped down on the little depression in the baked dirt and carefully scooped up the eggs. There were four. She held them close to her chest for a moment, and they felt strangely... warm.

"I'll keep them from dying, then."

So it seemed that his words did actually reach her. She decided to take the egggs after all. Jack watched that little spectacle of her transforming from Hyena to human. It was actually rather...strange. It wasn't at all like his own transformation. Her body seemed to literally change, where as Jack. Well Jack was more of a literal spirit. His body wasn't limited to what he appeared to be in front of her. He never had to physically shift because the tangibility of his current form was only as limited as his own will for it to appear as such. Iskra. Perhaps there was some more limitations on her because she was a pure born as opposed to a reincarnated soul. Perhaps she was ultimately more " real" than Jack himself. Perhaps thats why she spent so much more time in the world of mortals as opposed to the spirit realm. Regardless of appearance however. The matriarch always was who she was. The only thing never changing was those eyes. Then again it was much the same for Jack. No matter how he changed form. His eyes always glowed that crimson red.

" I see, well. At least you've got yourself a pet now I suppose...or would you consider it family? I don't know".

A curious thought. Could beasts keep pets? He supposed the idea wasn't all together impossible. However it did bring that little hint of ridiculousness with it. " Well now thats done and dusted with, we have a few things more to discuss you and I". There was a glint in his eye at that stage. One moment he was there. The next he was gone. But not faraway. Merely using his devil speed power to move himself out of the hole. He leaned over from the edge of the pit. " Come now then.I'm a busy man you know...". A wink and a smile. But something hidden within both.

There were two more half-hidden by a snake corpse that she dug up as well. Six little eggs. They were... cute in a way. The infant form of most animals were cute. Even these had an absolutely adorable splotched pattern to them, ostensibly to help them blend in with the hellrock that they were laid upon. They weren't really pets in her mind. She didn't have a completely clear concept of the idea, but she did know what a clan was, and she decided that if the eggs ever hatched, the resultant creature would be a clanmate, albeit one subordinate to her.

But looking up Iskra grimaced. The pride demon always appeared to get around so easily with that speed thing of his. Perhaps it might be nice to invest in a similar technique in the future.

But for now, she didn't have one. She simply had to place the eggs carefully in the hip-bag that she had in this form and climb back up the way she came with a series of leaps that may as well have been flaps for how far an fast they took her to the lip of the abyss.

He had an interesting manner about him that made her wonder if he was up to something, but the wild spirit landed in the open with an unsteadiness as she checked the bag. Her movements couldn't be too violent, lest they crack her new friends.
