(Private) Return of the Vampire Legion: Past Transgressions

Recommended Posts

A Thousand years ago, during the brief reign of Nightmare Moon, a race of ponies was brought out from the shadows of Tartarus itself to combat enemies of the Night's Queen. Ponies with unique qualities and characteristics of one of the Nights most famous creatures, Bats. These Batponies were found to be significantly superior to their Ponies cousins, with healing capabilities and a still unknown lifespan. The Solar Empire, led by Princess Celestia, were outmatched by these demon spawns as they waged a gruesome war for Equestria. A wound that would mean certain death for a regular pony, was practically a scratch to a Batpony, unless their heart was pierced through. A Batpony's extreme healing factor was activated when they sucked the blood of a Pony, henceforth Nightmare Moons Soldiers were called, The Vampire Legion. Although outmatched, The Solar Empire never gave up, their resourcefulness proved to be their greatest weapon against the Vampire Legion. In the end, they bought Princess Celestia a window of opportunity, to face Nightmare Moon and end the War.

 

Their Plan worked, Nightmare Moon was vanished to the Moon, and without their Queen, The Vampire Legion withdrew from Equestria in fear of Princess Celestia's newfound power. For a thousand years, Batponies became a myth, a bedtime story told to fillies and colts to keep them from getting into trouble. Now, Nightmare Moon's glorious return was cut short by the Elements of Harmony, and Princess Luna came back from the darkness to rule beside her elder Sister over Equestria. However, rumor had spread far of Nightmare Moons short return, and Luna's return to her former Glory. This rumor reached even the darkest caverns and deepest shadows, sparking a Black Flame that would soon threaten to engulf all of Equestria, and bring about the rise of one of it's Greatest Enemies.

 

Present Time, 500 miles from Equestria's southern border, Province unknown.

 

A lone guard rested upon the stone railing of a tall stone wall, which surrounded a large city, ruled by a rich pony who self proclaimed himself as a "king". The Guard, wearing banded iron armor and armed with a polearm weapon, drowsily made his rounds on his section of the wall. He stopped upon hearing a rustle on the stone just over the wall, he sighed thinking it to be another animal just being curious, but walked up to the railing to peer over. Without warning, something whizzed past his face and knocked his polearm from his right hoof. He stepped back in shock, but froze with terror as he looked out into the blackness of the night. There, hundreds of striking yellow eyes starred up at him, horror gripped his breath and prevented him from calling out an alarm. Suddenly a shape flew past behind him, putting out all the torches around him. The Guard continued to step back slowly, but then stopped as he felt a presence behind him. Shakily and slowly, He turned his head to look, but what he saw made a cold shiver of fear crawl up his spine. A Pony, but with dark purple bat wings and long furry tipped ears, and slit eyes like ambers stones. The Guards mouth opened to yell, but not a sound came out, the only sounds were steel cutting through flesh and two deathly thuds against the stone atop the wall. The Moonlight gleamed off the crimson liquid that flowed from the Guards lifeless body. Moments later, the entire wall went dark, and shrieks and screams erupted from within the city as it was overrun by fast dark shapes. The City's defense were helpless, and just the noise started, it began to lessen until there was a deathly silence. The City was then plunged into absolute darkness.

 

Early that morning, Canterlot, Equestria.

 

Corporal Oakly Trax and Specialists Kasey Trax awoke to the loud banging on their bedroom door, and a strict deep voice yelling from outside, "Wake up you two! We have a mission, be ready for briefing in 1 hour!" hoofsteps signaled they had walked down a few meters before repeating the same thing to several other rooms. Oakly sat up scratching his head, his cold piercing blue eyes fluttered open a few times before he slunk out of bed to start getting dressed. Kasey groaned loudly before he too sat up and opened his light icy blue eyes to look out the window next to him, adjusting to the bright early morning sun, "A mission huh? Better not be another waste if our energies like last time." He mumbled grumpily before stretching his front legs out. Oakly put his grey shirt on and remembered their last mission to the eastern border, where the Outpost had received a few bandit raids from the eastern flatlands, "Either way, we shouldn't get complacent, it can be the difference between life and death. Now come on, we gotta' make sure everypony else is getting up and ready."

 

Southern Province, Ruined City.

 

The Ruined City had minor scars of the invasion from last night, any and all evidence of the previous inhabitants. At the center of the city, stood a well sized castle, painted blotched crimson red. Inside the main, which was lit by hundreds of candles, three Batponies entered in conversation. "Alright alright, get this. So as I'm taking care of some guards, one tries to sneak up behind me, and spears me with a rusty spearhead. I tell you, this City had no chance of defending against us. After laughing my flank off, I feed off the one who speared me and then use the same spear to kill the rest, the looks of fear on their faces was priceless." Caesar Valentine chuckled amusingly. The Batpony stallion next to him, Shadowed Heart, smirked with a sly expression. "The Guard I took out on the wall seemed to act with some training, but was by no means fully trained soldier. I say we got lucky, finding a place so weakly defended." He said smoothly before stopping in the middle of the hall, Caesar and the other Batpony stopped as well.

Dark red eyes fluttered opened as the banging was heard. A sigh in annoyance along with a loud yawn was heard as Killjoy sat up in her bed. Her hair scattered in all directions as she scratched her head with a groan "12 years enlisted, two wars and yet I still can not get used to getting up this early." She said to herself finally rolling out of bed. She wobbled side to side every step before getting to a mirror to witness the mess in front of her. She sighed as poked at the large scar running down her chest before looking back in the mirror with a smirk "I am such a bad@ss." She said brushing her hair back in order. She finished up her mane and tail to military standards. She walked over to a large wooden cabinet before pulling the doors open revealing dark red segmented armor similar to the armor worn by the orient nations along with a same style sword, a curved sword with a ray asking wrapped hilt. All were a gift from the Emperor of the nation she helped fend off a tyrannical aggressor. Little by little the armor was strapped and fitted onto her body as the the sword was sheathed and strapped onto her hip. She took one last look into the mirror before walking out of the room. Killjoy began her descent down the flight if stairs as she passed other ponies who saluted before following.

Oakly and Kasey exited their room, armored in black leather with steel plating at the top of each leg and plating down the sides. Much lighter than the traditional Infantry armor, with more purpose towards quick movements and agile warfare. The Brothers carried wolf-like helmets, matching their armor, except Oakly's was painted blue while Kasey's was painted red. The two stood at attention and saluted their Captain as she passed by, instantly falling into line behind her, flanking her sides a few paces back. "What do you think Captain, another group of Raiders at our Eastern border again?" Kasey asked curiously.

 

Outside on the parade field, stood a Stallion dressed in a more ceremonial fashioned silver and gold trimmed military coat, the collar was up covering half of the stallions face as he looked out into the horizon of Equestria before him. Pins on his collar, black full bird eagles, marked him as a Colonel. He gave his wings a shiver in the brisk morning air before turning around and watching as his soldiers made their way out to the parade field. His cold steel blue eyes glowed like their were lit by small sources of light from behind, adorned on his coat were scores of medals and ribbons, earned from his many years of service. His most prestigious of all, were the patches on his shoulders; His left bearing the creat of Princess Celestia, and on the right bore the crest of Princess Luna.

Killjoy chuckled "I have no idea, nor do I really care. I just hope I can get some long awaited combat, it's been far too long since I've seen some action, be it raider or military, I'll cut them down with ease, and let glory reign as I spill the blood of the Princess' enemies." She said with a sadistic smirk as she entered the field. "Well hello Colonal" she grinned "I really hope you got something good for us, I'm just dying to get out there and...correct some ill intent."

"Luck...had nothing to do with it." A deep thunderous voice came from behind the group of gossiping batponies as large armor clad batpony slowly walked towards them, the weight of the armor was made clear as the steel mad a loud thud with every step. The armor was all black with lions engraved on the shoulder plates, long red caped flowed in the air. The wearer, dark grey coat with piercing orange, his short hair matched his eyes. "It was our united strength and skill that got us here today...trained or not, the ponies will be cattle to the slaughter." He passed the group "to say we were lucky is to doubt our brethren." He glared at the three "and to doubt me." Though his voice was calm, it was clear he was annoyed.

Colonel Nameless Trax stiffled a sly grin, as an old friend he would have greeted Killjoy otherwise, but in uniform it would be unprofessional. However it was Killjoy afterall. "Good to hear, cause you'll be leading a scouting party." He told her before he stepped back to adress the soldiers as they formed up in three platoons. Four rows deep, 11 across. A Senior Sergeant stood out in center front of each platoon, with a lieutenant at the back. Trax stood facing the three platoons with Killjoy at his right, and a brown rough looking stallion at his left, the rank on his heavy Equestrian armor marked him as a First Sergeant. "Last night, an outpost on the Southern border failed to report in. A runner was sent from a nearby Fort, but reported the outpost empty. Wether it was desertion, or an attack, we will follow protocol." Trax spoke clearly and with purpose, his eyes roamed across the platoons as he spoke, "Captain Killjoy will lead a scouting party ahead, leaving immediately after. Those going, will be Corporal Oakly, Specialist Kasey, Specialist Hobbs, Private Leaf, and Private Red." At their name, each stepped forward to fall in at Killjoys side. "Everypony else, start preparations to leave by mid-day. Dismissed!" At this he turned to Killjoy, "Proceed with caution, the nearby fort has already reposted the outpost, but the disappearance of the former guards is.... questionable. They'll probably be expecting you, but no formality has been sent. Send a runner to me once you learn something, I hear Private Leaf is quite good at long distances." He said nodding to the leather armored young earth pony mare, her light green coat stood out against the black leather armor. "Take good care of them Captain. And Colts," He added leaning to the side to eye the twins, "Behave." Oakly and Kasey straightened up turning white with fear.

 

As if on cue, Shadow stiffled a deep of annoyance as a second Batpony followed, Black Star. The black armor clad  unicorn stallion forced himself in the middle of the group, his light blue and green eyes had a certain arrogance to them, his long black hair tied up in multiple knots down the back of his neck. "You may be part of the Silent Fang, but even you will heed our Lords orders." He told them cockily. Caesar chuckled, "Of course, but, what does that make you? The Lords flank wiper?" He snickered before sharing a laugh with Shadow. The third batpony shook back his hood, revealing himself as Shade Locke, one of the most powerful unicorns in the Vampire Legion, "The Lord is right though, our combined strength and prowess is what led to our victory." Black nodded at this, but knew Shades loyalty still belonged to Shadow, he just wasn't of the immature mind. "Shove off you half wits, The Lord recognizes my great talents, thats why I am always at his side." Black hissed angrily before hurring to catch up with his Lord. Shadow watched them go with narrowed eyes, "Shade, you took care of the outpost right?" Shade nodded in response, "Good, soon we'll have our fun."

Killjoy laughed "You forget who you're talking to Colonal Trax, I didn't come this far, live through two wars, and gain the rank of Captain by just lazing around and throwing live away like garbage. You know me better than that right?" She asked with a chuckle "don't worry about the young ones, I'll have them all return in on piece, you have my word."

 

Maelstrom's ear flicked as the whispers were heard, but kept walking "Black Star, refrain from antagonizing our brethren, for everything to go smoothly, I need everyone to be on the same page." He glanced back at Black "that means I need no rivalries over pride, especially with your fellow Silent Fang brethren. We can't afford hatred amongst ourselves, not now." He said with authority "do I make myself clear Black Star?"

Trax nodded to her before confering with the First Sergeant, discussing further planes of movement. Oakly turned to Killjoy after sharing words with Kasey and the others, to which they scattered off, "I've sent them off to gather their gear and travel ready supplies, we'll all meet up at the front gate, ready to start off."

 

Black Star dipped his head graciously, "Yes My Lord, I understand completely." 

 

Shadow nodded to Shade, and the unicorn teleported away, "No doubt the Equestrians have re-fortified the outpost already, Shade will make quick work of them again, appearing as though they just left without saying a word. Leaving Leadership to be suspicious of it, or write it off as desertion." Caesar chuckled, "Whatever choice they make will help us determine their threat levels to plan accordingly, You are a cunning creature Shadow, deviously cunning."

Maelstrom looked back at the three Vampires now in the distance "Though it bothers me, I can't help but feel that not everyone is...honest to me. I believe there a few that are still going their own way and are still acting for personal gain. Surely you have seen it too Black Star." He glanced at Black "goes without say, ill need you to sniff them out and bring them to me alive so I can make an example out of them, what consequences disloyalty brings. I will have absolutely no tolerance for it." His voice was now stern "go now, and don't get found out."

 

Killjoy nodded "Well don't take too long, trouble doesn't wait for us, we should only be out for a day or two, so pack very light."

"Yes My Lord, it shall be done. To defile you, you is to renounce their blood." Black Star dipped his head and teleported away.

 

Less than 30 minutes later, the squad was formed up at the ready just outside the front gate of Canterlot. All their packs were relatively small and light, packed only with the bare essentials. Oakly had a katana strapped to his left side, Kasey had two sabres strapped to his, both had their armor littered with throwing knives. Hobbs was a unicorn with a simple short sword, Red proudly gave himself a light shake, rattling all his small hatchets sheathed to his body. As an earth pony from Ponyville, he grew up on a lumber farm, hence his affinity for axes. Leaf sported a simple cutlass, with a dagger close to it. The five ponies stood by waiting for their Captain.

Killjoy was sitting on a bench behind the group of soldiers "I'm right here you know." She said as she stood up stretching "Well let's go, we want to get there right the sun goes down."

 

(Hours later, in the tree line around the outpost.)

 

Killjoy laid down watching the outpost with a handheld telescope seeing absolutely no activity on the walls. She turned to Leaf "Ok runner, report to the Colonal that the outpost is completely abandoned and there are no signed of retaking. I suspect foul play... this has attack all over it, definitely been invaded." She said as she kept looking through the telescope, there were nothing obvious, only little hints here and there along the wall. "And it was a slaughter by the looks of it."

Leaf was about to move when Hobbs stopped her, "Shouldn't we find out who's behind it first? We could be leading our Company into a trap." Oakly and Kasey glanced at each other, His concern was somewhat justified, but he still spoke out of place. Oakly made a split second decision, "He spoke out of place, but he speaks some sense, it could be a trap." He backed quietly. Kasey nodded in agreement, "Captain, a closer look may reveal the information we need for a more detailed report." As he spoke, Red perked up with excitement, "I saw someone! They just walked into the outpost!" He declared in a loud whisper. Oakly turned his head quickly to barely catch a glimpse of movement inside the outpost, but not enough to make a clear description.

Killjoy glared at the group "that wasn't our orders, we were sent to observe from a distance, getting any closer without support will put this entire mission And our lives in jeopardy." She said quietly but stern "And of course it's a trap, do you not see the faded blood stains and small signs of a struggle." She sniffed "the blood is still fresh enough to smell." She looked back through her telescope seeing the small amount of activity "so I will say it again, go get in touch with the Colonal, tell him to proceed with caution, there is a small amount movement in the outpost, so expect a possible ambush." She said waving Leaf off "I didn't earn the Colonal's trust by making stupid decisions, and if you question me again Sepecialist." She glared back at Hobbs "I will kill you."

Hobbs shrunk back swallowing a big gulp of fear, "Yes Captain, it won't happen again." He said submissively. Leaf nodded and took off, she moved quickly but kept a moderately fast past so not to tire herself out too fast. Oakly looked back at the outpost, "It worries me, the outpost itself prevents large scale stealth, and there would be more damage and clearer signs of a struggle if it was a large raid. This had to be done by a small group, worst case scenario, one pony did all this alone." He thought out loud. Kasey closed his eyes but nodded in agreement, "If that's the case, we're dealing with a dangerous enemy. Not only do we know next to nothing about their identity, but we know they are capable of facing multiple opponents." He added in. Red peered in closer, "Some of those marks kind look like magic burns."

 

In a short time, Leaf had already made it clear out of sight from the group, she took a big leap to clear a riverbed marking the border between a grassy plain and thick forest. Mid-air she realized her mistake to check ahead, she twisted her body in an attempt to dodge around a blast of lightning, the attack barely grazing her left hind leg. She landed in a clumsy roll among the long grass, her left hind leg was stiff with numbness from the lightning. Leaf attemtped to stand but froze as she heard hoofsteps approach her and stop just foot from her, she slowly tilted her head up to look, but she was not prepared for what stood before her. This pony, a unicorn stallion with fur tipped ears, and eyes like a serpent. Leaf couldn't help but be mesmerized by the strange ponies dark violet eyes as they shimmered like amthyst gems, she was startled when he spoke in such a calm and nonthreatening tone. "Take this as well back to your commander, "He began as he levitated a small lunar pendent to her, "They will know what this means, because no matter how they prepare, it won't make a difference to what is to come." With that he teleported away. Leaf breathed with relief before looking at the pendent, it reminded her of Princess Luna's crest, but it looked more sinister. She gradually stood up and shook of her hind legs numbness before continuing on across the grassland, this time with a more cautious awarness of her surroundings.

 

Shadow finished his last glass of blood wine, he noticed an air of unease wove its way through the hall, quieting all the Batpony's, "Caesar, it sounds like your dear sibling is awake." He said sternly. Caesar flickered his ears before drinking another glass, "With any luck, I won't be her quarry today."

 

In the throne room, the doors opened up, letting in a beautiful Batpony mare. Her glossy purple coat was mistreated with a few scars here and there, her long marroon colored hair was braided and hung from her left side, a pair of dazzling crimson eyes rested upon Maelstrom. "Shocking, I didn't think I'd see the day when you are without your attatched tumor. Speaking of whom, has Black Star finally grown independent?"

Killjoy chuckled "Well that's great news, haven't had a good fight in ages, if you are right Oakly, this will be quite fun indeed." She said with a sadistic grin "but then again, it's not like the guards in that outpost were trained like us, we are elite, they will find that out soon." Her crimson eyes summed to glow in the moonlight.

 

Maelstrom just glanced at Ally "unfortunately not.. I send him to deal with a... domestic issue, so he should be returning within the fortnight and with any luck, some results." He said calmly.

Oakly and Kasey glanced at each other with mild smirks, Red and Hobbs exchanged glances of concern, they hadn't fought beside Killjoy yet and never thought they would. "Red, Hobbs, secure our rear, we can't risk them trying to flank or ambush us." The two stallions nodded their agreement to Oaklys command and slunk back into the forest. Kasey put on his dark green cloak and wrapped himself up in it, "I'll take first shift if you and the Captain want to get some shut eye." 

 

Ally approached the throne and circled around to behind where a red couch sat patiently, she slumped onto it with moan of relief as she stretched out, "What kind of 'Domestic' issue? You honestly think our brethren would simply betray our cause? Our Queen of the Night gave us life and purpose, to reign supreme under an eternal Night, what else is there?" She asked nonchalantly. Before Maelstrom could answer, Shadow and Caesar entered the throne room, they approached Maelstrom and dipped their heads. "The outpost on the southern border has been secured, Shade is posted to maintain control, he has made sure our message is sent to the Capital. Also, it would seem Equestria has some sort of reaction force, theres a small group of soldiers reconning the outpost, Shade is awaiting further orders to their fate." Shadow reported obediently, his eyes glanced past Maelstrom to share an exchanging glare with Ally. Caesar smiled awkwardly as he waved to his twin sister, they didnt show it publicly, but the two were close. Caesar was the only one in the Legion to know Ally to a full extent.

Maelstrom just put his head on his hand and thought for a moment "keep Shade on standby for now, keep an eye on the group of soldiers scouting the outpost. Through out history, the Sun Princess's soldiers were always a pain. A minor bump in our path, but won't stop my plans. Though do tell Shade to be cautious, we are a superior species but they have numbers and are very well trained. Especially if.... SHE had any descendants..." he said remembering an event hundreds of years ago. Maelstrom gripped one if the arm rests, the arm rest cracked and faltered as he crumbled in his fist.

Shadow bowed his head acknowledgingly, "Of course Lord Maelstrom, by your command. Shade shouldn't have too much trouble with them, his magical prowress is second only to Black Star." As he finished, Black Star teleported in, a roughed up looking batpony mare lay shaking at his side. Ally lifted herself up in curiosity, "Speaking of the tumor." She said sarcastically. Black Star scoffed, "Very funny M'Lady. Pardon my intrusion, but I found this one attempting to run away with a few others, she was the only one to not resist. This is all I could find, as it has always been, The Silent Fang are true to the Cause." As he spoke, cloaked Batponies appeared from the shadows all around them, each bareing a silver fang clip on their cloaks. There were 24 remaining members of the original 42, including Maelstrom, Ally, Black Star, Shadow, Caesar, and Shade. Maelstrom was the fourth appointed Leader of the Silent Fang and Lord General of the Legion, his predecessors along with many of their brethren were slain during the War a thousand years ago. As the Silent Fang, they are the Elite of their kind, appointed, raised, and trained by Nightmare Moon Herself. To serve her in any way, they are her very Will manifested into a sharp blade, to strike down any who would stand in her way. At the last battle of the War, a small group of Solar Empire Soldiers led a last resort battle against the Silent Fang, after loosing two of their Leaders and half a dozen of their brethren to these same ponies, the Silent Fang fought with a vengeance. In the end, the small group of Solar ponies were killed off, but at a price. The Silent Fang were reduced to 24, with their third leader dying from his wounds, and appointing Maelstrom as the Fourth Leader. Shortly after, Nightmare Moon was defeated and bannished to the Moon, and the Batpony's forced into a retreat for their lives, with no way to defend against Celestia's newfound power. Shadow stepped forward, "Lord Maelstrom, did you doubt our Loyalty?" He asked with a small hint of challenge to his tone, stemming from his Pride as a Silent Fang member. There were few murmurs around the room as the others whispered their agreements to Shadows question, feeling a little betrayed by the thought of being considered as a traitor.

 Maelstrom didn't even flinch at the challenging words, instead he just smirked "doubt in loyalty..." he glared at Black Star "there's no doubt there is a Loyalty issue..." he stood up with his hooves behind his back glaring down at the batpony mare. He looked around the room "forgive me if any of your were offended." he walked up to Shadow "i know there are some who only follow you, like Shade, dont think I never noticed, I'm not going to do anything. All I ask is his full cooperation even when you're gone, be it on tasks or by some random chance of fate you were ever slain, I need to know I can rely on him, that's all. So please be at ease brothers, none of your loyalty is being questioned, but..." he glanced back at Black Star "apparently I can't rely on one to keep a secret. Black Star I'll deal with you later." He said sternly "take that mare to the cells and then we can...discuss what to do with you." He walked back and sat on his throne. "If you still feel betrayed, please, speak up now."

The room was silent, content with his words. Black Star held back his anger with mildly contorted face of rage, due to the fact someof the members were snickering at his troubles. Black Star teleported away with the mare. Caesar nudged Shadow with a gleeful grin at Black Star being mocked again, Shadow smirked slightly, but still felt uneasy. Shades undying loyalty to him made even him uncomfortable sometimes, though he still paid respects to Maelstrom, Shade rarely took direct orders from him personally. Since he was almost always at Shadows side, and they worked very well together, they did many missions together. Shadow faced Maelstrom, "I will talk to him Lord, and insure his same loyalty to you and our cause." He told him intently. Ally sighed as she lay back down, "Since the majority of us present, let us go over the plan once more, to ensure understanding. Our End game, the return of our Mother and Queen, Nightmare Moon." As she finished, Caesar stepped forward, "First phase, establish a base of operations close to Equestria, complete." Shadow traced a number 2 on the floor, "Second phase, probe Equestria to test their defenses, learn their military in and out, find weaknesses to exploit. In progress."

"And let's all wish Shade the best of luck and give him all of our support. What happens next relies solely on his success." Maelstrom said with a slight grin "And we will be one step ever closer to what we have been waiting hundreds of years for, one step closer for us to be back on top of the food chain...and once again be feared by all around the world, eventually making Equestria a vampire nation." His voice carried the definition of authority "But we must be patient brothers, we have a long road ahead of us, stay strong for our victory is assured as long we stay united."

 

Killjoy lowered her telescope "how can I sleep now when there is excitement just yards away. You two go on ahead, I won't be dozing off any time soon."

"That's all I need Captain." Kasey whispered quickly before resting comfortably into his cloak and falling asleep almost instantly. Oakly starred at his brother in awe for moment, He could always fall asleep so fast, "How does he.... oh blast it, I'm going to check up on Red and Hobbs before I nod off." He said before slinking back into the forest. About 20 meters back, he found Red and Hobbs had situated themselves in a tree, comfortably still and on watch. After a leap, Oakly joined them for a moment, insuring their understanding of the mission before landing back on the forest floor. He made his way back to Killjoy and Kasey, stealthily putting on his own dark green cloak and finding a place to rest against a nearby tree trunk. "Any idea who it might be Captain? The next land over is just individual cities controlled by individual self proclaimed Kings, we've never had problems with this border, why the trouble now?"

 

"We own the Night, We are the Night!" The course of voices echoed around the room as the Silent Fang Members recited their chant. Ally smiled in satisfaction as the members dispersed, leaving just four of them alone. "You are an excellent Leader Lord Maelstrom, Necropolis chose well in his dying breath, may he rest in peace." She said smartly. Caesar prodded the floor with his hoof angrily, "They were fewer, but those bloody Solar ponies had more skill and smarts than we gave them credit. Led by that brute of mare, she took Necropolis from us, along with many of our brethren. We may have slaughtered them in the end, but we carry that victory with a heavy price." He voiced coldly, letting his frustration boil over. Shadow looked to the side guiltily, "We were tricked into that fight to begin with, the Legion was caught off guard by the Solar Army, the mastermind General Lucifer orchestrated the entire thing. He used our anger for vengeance to lure us away from the Legion, while all of us were preoccupied, Celestia managed to gain a new power and defeat our Queen. We underestimated them, we underestimated Lucifer, and Her. No doubt their lineages have been passed on, and if thats the case." Shadow glared up at Maelstrom, the anger was not for him, "If Lucifers bloodline is still alive today, and they are in a similar leadership, They are Mine to kill!" He added darkly. Ally moved a hoof over a large scar on her left shoulder, "She was a tough one, but I put her down. I hope her descendant can put up a similar challenge, She made me feel so alive during Our fight." She reminisced softly out loud.

Maelstrom sighed "Well there is a lot we still don't know, but like I said earlier, we need Shade to be cautious if your theories are true. I too remember our costly victory very well." He put his hoof over his chest as large scar across his entire front side of his body. The same mare Ally fought gave him the scar. "We wont make the same mistake ever again. This time we are prepared, and ready for that sort of opposition." He said as the memories flooded his mind "but if there are descendants, avoid them until we can gauge their strengths."

Shadow dipped his head in understanding, "Yes Lord Maelstrom." After Shadow and Caesar left, it was just Maelstrom and Ally. "I do hope her descendants are alive and just as strong, Her blood was by far the best tasting!" Ally cooed as she licked her lips seductively.
