The year was 1019 A.D. Cornelius was a young man and a great warrior, he was 20 at the time. His father went into a great battle and returned as a corpse, which meant that Cornelius was now king of his land. Five years later, after defeating an invading army of an invading country, he began to get a reputation for being a very great warrior and also began his quest to conquer the land, within the year he had conquered every country but one. His brother, Marcus, was tired of living in his shadow, he had always hated that he was the oldest and also their father's "favorite". He wanted to get rid of him once and for all, for he wanted to be king, he thought he would be far greater than his older brother. The night before Cornelius' death, Marcus met with the only person that his brother trusted and that was their uncle. He would pay him several large bags of gold to get rid of Cornelius once and for all. Of course their uncle agreed, because he was a greedy man. The next night Cornelius had a very large feast, in celebration of conquering the very last country. Once the celebration was over, Cornelius sat on his throne creating plans to conquer the rest of the world. He had called for his uncle to help with the plans. "Ah, Uncle, I see that you made it," he says. His uncle only nods and stands beside him. "So, how shall we begin the invasion, I think we sh...wait what are you doing?" Cornelius asks as his uncle plunges a dagger deep into his chest, piercing his heart. Uncle why? Why have you betrayed me? he thinks as he lays there dying. I swear I shall have my revenge! Devil hear me now! I give you my soul, in exchange for giving my revenge! The next day Cornelius was buried and his brother took over the throne. Three days later Cornelius came back from the grave, he had pale skin and super human abilities, he was the world's first vampire. But at the same time as he was created, four talismans were created. As he was walking toward what was once his kingdom, a bird dropped something in front of him, he unwraps what the bird had dropped. There was a note attached saying Maybe these will help in your revenge and conquest. After reaching the castle, he got his revenge. Now he was on a different conquest, to create others like him and to take over the world. The year is 1650 A.D. by this time Cornelius had taken over the world. Once the world was taken over, he had gotten bored and disgusted with his world, so he decided to go into a deep sleep. While sleeping, human priests feared that another conquest would happen if he awoke so they hid them in four different parts of the world, guarded for all eternity. ______________________________________________________________________________ That was 1,000s of years ago, Cornelius has awaken form his deep sleep. Cornelius sits on his throne in his castle, he had awoken just a few days ago. He calls for the lead general of his army. "Where are my talismans?" he asks. "Uh..sir...when you went into your deep slumber, several human priests hid them in four comers of the world," The general says. "What? Why?" he asks. "Because they were afraid that when you awoke, that you would try to take over the world again," The general says once more. Cornelius gave him an angry glare. "I don't care what it takes, you have to go on a quest to find them," he says. "Rally up some men and begin," he barks. The general nods and turns walking out of the room. Cornelius sits on his throne and stares off into space, he was planning what to do once he had the talismans again. He then calls for another, this time it was the record keeper. "How much of the world has changed?" he asks. The record keeper looks at him, "The entire world has changed my lord," he says. Cornelius looks at him, "Like?" he asks. "Like there are several religions and not just one, there are more countries than when you ruled," he says. Cornelius only nods and sends him away. ______________________________________________________________________________ Zeth and his partner (Jeremiah) were standing in front of a large strong hold, waiting for their master. An aging man finally comes to meet them. “News has spread, Cornelius, the worlds first vampire and the ultimate evil has awoken.” He says. “ I consulted a seer and she said that you two, plus a vampire, an albino one in fact and a dhaphir, must stop him and destroy his powerful talismans.” He says. “May peace and God be with you.” He says before blessing them. Great, this is just lovely, having to work with a half breed and a vampire...just my luck... He thinks. He then turns and looks at Jeremiah. “Well, it's now or never, let's get going before anything bad happens.” He says as he mounts on to his horse, even though he had a feeling that something bad was going to happen. He sits upon his horse, waiting for his partner, so they could start their long journey ahead of them. Dagger walks down a path, he was a wanderer, that usually wondered from place to place, doing odd jobs and such. But he wasn't a normal person either, he was in fact a vampire, but not a normal one. He was an albino and the only full-blood vampire that can withstand any vampire weaknesses, because his own kind experimented on him. He had been walking for several days, and he noticed or swore that a person was following him, unbeknownst to him, it was actually Gabriel. Thunder roared over head as lightning streaked a crossed the sky. Lovely, what just what I need, fuckin rain. He thinks and rolls his eyes He soon spots a cave up a head, well this looks like a good place as any to stop for the day, since its going to storm. He thinks. Just as he entered the cave, does it begin to down pour.
