They had slowly snaked their way into the very heart of London, then all of England, then the world. Already they had dethroned many kings, presidents and prime ministers. Quite simply, they would soon be running the world. People all over began putting their faith in Inti and blindly following the church. They created murals and shrines, went to church on Sundays and prayer sessions on Saturdays. The Church of Inti now had followers spanning 80% of the human population. They were slowly but surely becoming the rulers of the world. But there still exists persons who strongly believe the church is corrupt and evil. These people are destined to be targeted by the Kurogari Saints. They are destined to die. Or so most of them would have been. Some humans took to fragmenting their very souls and creating Oculi. And then there were the 'blessed'. The divine energy left back from Inti's conatact with the Earth had 'blessed' several persons with extraordinary powers. Some decided to become agents of the church, while some decided to stand up to the church. One thing is certain, bringing the church of Inti to it's knees will not be easy, if possible at all..... ********* (Three years before start of main plot)Pit, pat, pit, pat. Soft feat landed heavily on the floor as the girl ran along the dark, narrow corridor. On either sides she could see small torches mounted on the walls, the only sources of light. She glanced back to the edge of the corridor and saw nothing, but she wasn't a fool, she knew he was there. She turned her head back around and saw a door at the end of the corridor. She wasted no time. Extending her hands and opening her palms, she unleashed a large blast of faint blue energy and the door split into pieces on contact. She ran through and looked around, realizing she was now on the outside. A large terrace to be exact. It was very spacious and provided a perfect view of Leicester City. The girl looked urgently over the edge of the stone rails and realized she was 5 feet off the ground. A sharp pain shot through her arm and she turned sharply to see the cloaked figure of Daremo Inai, a Kurogari Saint. There was a slender needle lodged in her forearm. She made a move to pull it out but it dissolved.....into blood. She gritted her teeth and looked up at the Kurogari. "I won't be just another one of your coldblooded murders, monster!!!!" She exclaimed. A barrage of needles came flying at her and though she she succeeded in blasting many of them, she was still stabbed repeatedly all over her body. She screamed angrily and fired a large ripple of energy at Daremo, who responded by launching himself into the air. He held his hand back and blood burst out of his shoulder, wrapping itself around his entire hand and then going off into the air, creating a blood centipede. He swished his hand forward and the sharp pincers of the centipede extended and rapidly lunged toward her. It pierced her body, pushing her over the rail in one final blood choked scream. Arisu was running toward the castle happily. She might not have been an official in the Church of Inti, but she was still a part of the royal family. Her guards had long since been outrun. She couldn't wait to get into Castle Inti. Her sister had told her she would be doing 'something special' at the castle and asked her to keep it a secret. But she had asked her father if she could visit the castle anyway, 'because it was fun'. If her sister was up to something, she wanted to know what. She ran straight across the large moat and was about to knock on the door when someone screamed. She stepped back, surprised, and was shocked when her sister's bloody, falling form appeared in front of her. Their eyes met for a moment, and Arisu could see the fear and pain in her sister's wide open eyes, just before she hit the ground, her blood splattering all over the thirteen year old princess.
