A vengeful demon prince, a deal with the devil, and witchcraft? Sounds like fun, right? Not when you're dealing with an army of numbskulls and exorcists 24/7! Meet Shade Carden, the sixth son of Satan, a half bred with a human woman. Put out of a home due to his blood, Shade now spends his days hiding out at a prestigious high school and slowly building his army, by dealing with their foolish desires. For what, you might ask? To overthrow his family. By his side is his companion Mary Chap, a girl in stark contrast to his dull, calculating personality, but that doesn't mean you can doubt her. As popular and bubbly as she seems, this witch hides a dark secret, one that keeps Shade ever on his toes. Morbid, playful, and quick on her toes, Mary is loyal to Shade and his cause, to the point where she lures others to join her in their ever tied fates. But even with his great mind and Mary at his side, can Shade end this battle with a well placed checkmate, or will his father's inherited thirst for power overcome him? Will exorcists manage to get their hands on him? _____ Shade- Shade is a very quiet and manipulative teen with a one track mind and a lot of impatience. He has a brilliant mind and decent athletic ability, but he's very bad socially. He likes to spend most of his time in an old classroom, playing chess against himself. He leaves his heavy work to Mary. He sees Mary as his only true loyal companion, and even states that he trusts her with his life, and his wallet. His powers are underdeveloped, but he is a wish granter demon, a rare and numbered breed. His weapons are poison darts, and his favorite food is meat. Mary- Mary, on the outside, appears to be an average popular teen girl with a love for the supernatural and the cute stuff. However, she's a very manipulating girl who has a twisted sense of humor, finding it fun to lure others into Shade's grip. She's not a normal human, either. A great granddaughter to Abyss, the Lord of Chaos, she is genetically blessed with enhanced athletic abilities, and could easily be one of the most powerful witches alive, enough to kill Shade. However, she feels as if Hell's rules are biased, and will follow Shade to the end of his journey. Her witch's ability is fortune telling, and her weapon is a deck of Tarot cards that summon other demons. Her berserk form is a half demon, half snake with red-hot scales, and her favorite food is tuna salad sandwiches. ____ "Shaaaaade! Shadeeee! My prince ~! Get up!," Mary said as she straddled Shade's sleeping form, dressed in a baggy T-shirt and rainbow skull pajama pants. She beat him with a big feathery pillow, pouting as he simply shifted and grunted. She huffed, putting the pillow over his head and holding it. Shade immediately began struggling against her, hands falling on his hips to push her off. Giggling, Mary got off and rolled from his bed,"Come on, we have to get ready for class. I got your breakfast cooking, but if you don't get up, I'll just eat it myself." "I'm up, geez," Shade said with a yawn as he stood up, scratching his belly,"You don't even have your uniform on, and you're nagging me?" "Damn straight. I change faster than most of your sisters do, so worry about yourself. We have to show around three new kids today as our Student Council duties," Mary said as she stirred the food in the pan as Shade moved to the bathroom with a towel on and a bundle of clothes,"And if you keep sleeping nude, I'll turn down the thermostat to 34 degrees Fahrenheit!" "You wouldn't dare!" "Try me." ___ Twenty minutes later, Mary fixed her black thigh highs and striped tie, admiring her reflection. Shade shouted,"Mary, hurry up!" Squeaking, Mary grabbed her bookbag and ran out the door, locking it with her key. Shade sat in the dorm hallway, looking snazzy in his male uniform. Mary grinned as she skipped down the hall,"Hi-hoooo!" The two made it to school in no time, Shade being practically dragged by the ends of his hairs by Mary as they made it to the School Office. Mary dropped Shade as she saluted the administrator talking to the three new students, "OFFICERS SHADE CARDEN AND MARY CHAP, REPORTING FOR DUTY!"
