There were only a few more days before the attack on Crocus would begin. Before that time, Caius had to hone his skills. There was no better place to do that then in the Domus Flau. The arena was famous for providing entertainment with battles of fame and glory. The thought of fighting made the blood in his body start pumping. It was only a month since he had acquired the body of demon and he was still getting used to the power. The crash magic was very unstable and the slightest trigger could cause a shock wave to explode outwards. If he was able to fight someone here, he could make sure he had full control before the real fight began.

It was the dark of night as the crowd gathered for one of the special events taking place in the venue. There was an opportunity for an ordinary citizen to fight a skilled martial artist for a cash prize. Earlier in the day, Caius had signed up along with some other hopeful fighters. They were all led out into the middle of the arena as the announcer hyped the crowd at the arrival of the champion. A metal gate rattled open from the side of the arena as a jacked bald man wearing a title belt walked towards them. The crowd roared as the champion stood his ground awaiting the challengers. The poor fools were blinded by money and had no skill to back it up. One by one they fell until Caius was the last one left.

The two of them stood a small distance away as the announcer signaled to fight. The champion would charge him and prepare a left hook. Caius kept his hand back at his side and once the bald man was in range, he struck his fist forward. The hand would strike him in the gut and unleash a shock wave of crash straight forward. The blast of magic sent the champion flying backwards as his unconscious body rolled to the ground. It was over in one punch. At least that's how the crowd would see it. The magic itself was invisible to the naked eye. The arena was dead silent as they took in what had just happened before starting to cheer for him. The announcer declared Caius the winner as he was led back inside the stadium.

After the fight, Caius was returned to the arena lobby where he was told to sit and wait for when his prize money was ready. He lifted up his hand that threw the punch and flexed it a few times admiring his strength. There was a Lacrima TV in the lobby where Caius watched the rest of the arena fights to pass time. He was sitting in the far back to try to hide from people bothering him but no doubt someone who saw him fight would have questions for him.

It was unusual for her to find herself at a place like a coliseum, an arena of violence so to speak but she was here for a very particular reason: the one in question being that a certain twin pair was eager to watch the ongoing arena fights. It just happened that there was a nice large television in the lobby where a pair of dark-skinned elves were eagerly watching the spectacle, seemingly commenting about it at the same time.

"That challenger looks pretty confident and strong! Heh, guess we're gonna see a show~" The boyish one of the duo declared with a grin while the girlish one stuttered bashfully. "I-I think he is going to win."

Footsteps caused the twins to turn around and face the source of them, the obsidian-haired woman who entered the arena lobby causing the duo to suddenly smile, clearly happy to see her. "Master Asmodeus!" The two exclaimed as they approached her and bowed lightly, leading the demon lord to gently pet their heads while she hummed softly. "You were watching the television just now, did one of the participants fascinate you?"

Mare nodded his head sheepishly as he explained in a soft and timid voice. "That one, the one on the screen right now who is fighting... he is different from the others." Hearing those words Asmodeus hummed softly, a hand raised to her chin as a thoughtful look crossed her visage. "Oho~ And why do you say that Mare?"

Mare gestured lightly as the shimmering blast of energy knocked the champion straight off his feet. "T-That spell just now, I believe that man used a very special type of magic to blast him away." Aura tilted her head to the side in confusion, seemingly fascinated by this statement. "You mean it's not wind magic?"

The girlish-looking elf nodded his head lightly in response while Asmodeus hummed softly, clearly fascinated by this statement. "Do you believe he is stronger than Sebastian?" Mare shook his head lightly, explaining further. "While I think that man's offensive spell power is stronger than Sebastian, it's likely Sebastian would be able to win if he fights seriously..."

Speaking of the demon, Sebastian had just arrived beside her, the butler looking down at Mare while addressing the dark elf. "Thank you for the vote of confidence Mare, but I believe an opponent like that would be quite tough, even for me. I believe someone like Cocytus might stand a better chance or Shalltear. Speaking of which, master I have a report to provide you later."

Asmodeus nodded her head lightly, yet soon raised a hand lightly to silence the butler as she saw a man arrive and make his way to the back of the lobby. "I think our guest of honor has arrived~" The demon lord hummed softly as she approached the man and inquired with a hint of curiosity. "That was an interesting spell you used during that fight~ Yet I can't help but wonder if it truly entertained you as much as you wanted? I can't help but feel that expression of yours on the screen was... dissatisfied, like a man who longs for something yet finds his desires unfullfilled~"

Caius turned his head to a rather busty woman that approached him having questions on the recent arena fight. The cat was out of the bag. She knew his secret that he used a spell in what was to be a hand to hand only match. Though crash was invisible to the untrained eye, some veteran mages would be able to spot it. His eyes darted past her to see an older man with two children keeping a sharp eye on her. Judging by their reaction, this woman surely had some type of influence in the country and wasn't just your ordinary fan. With that in mind, he decided to hear her out.

"Well well it looks like I've been found out. If you want to tell the arena staff, I don't care. It's like you said, I just recently trained and wanted to test my limits against a strong opponent. The prize money was just a bonus." It was the partial truth. The fight was more to test his control of magic but he did yearn for stronger mages to fight. That's what the Grimoire Heart invasion was for. He would just have to be patient for now until that day came.

"Why what's it to you anyway. The way it sounds is that you have something to offer me. So what can I help you with Miss.......?" he held the last part of his sentence implying that he wanted to know her name. Perhaps she could make his stay in Crocus a little more interesting. He waited in anticipation of her response.

Hearing the man's words Asmodeus' lips curved into a smile while she shook her head lightly in response. It seemed she was misunderstood, for she could care any less about an activity like this.
"It seems I was misunderstood~ I don't care about something petty like that. In the end, those fights were all part of a simple scheme to provide entertainment to the spectators and wealth to the owners of this fancy establishment." She paused for a moment, a brief glint of mischief in her eyes as she continued her statement.
"And there would be a certain sense of irony if I tried to intervene in the desires of a man without a solid reason."

Yet hearing that his desire was the search for a worthy opponent Asmodeus tilted her head slightly to the side, resting it against the palm of her hand while she mused softly."That would explain your dissatisfaction, although certain mortals possess a potential to surpass their humble limitations, the majority can be a bit lackluster if it's might you seek." A light tap on her cheek by her finger followed as she mused out loud
"Then again~ It is in their struggling that mortals are the most fascinating to observe."

When he inquired about her intentions of raising the subject the demon lord hummed softly, lowering her hands behind her back while she leaned a bit closer to him.
"Well~ You could say that I'm interested in the desires and longings of others, and I 'might' just be able to provide you with that which you desire." Yet when he held the last part of his sentence she smiled softly, her tone softening as she replied with her gaze settling onto him to see his reaction.
"How could I have forgotten proper etiquette~ My name is... Asmodeus~" the Demon Lord hummed with a smile while the older butler and the two elfin children approached her.

"While I know some who could surely best you in combat, they are unfortunately out of my reach to contact currently. However, the gentleman beside me might be able to grant you the battle you seek."

Sebastian stopped right beside Asmodeus, giving a slight bow of his upper-body while addressing the man politely. "My name is Sebastian, a humble servant of Master Asmodeus." Yet despite the words spoken by the butler that was conveyed with the typical politeness of a servant, the moment that if Caius decided to settle his gaze onto the butler he would possibly feel a powerful pressure overcome him. Not enough to crush his will thanks to his experienced being, but it would make it clear that he was no ordinary man.

Meanwhile, the elfin children continued their introduction also, the first one to speak being Aura who gave a light wave of her hand.
"Yo~ The name is Aura, fancy spell you used back there~" Yet her twin nodded his head meekly at the man. "M-Mare... My name is Mare." At their introduction, the Demon Lord merely smiled as she continued. "Should you desire it, I could let you spar with Sebastian, if you truly want a challenge to test your limits then Mare and Aura could support him, I could guarantee you that you'd find a more worthwhile and entertaining duel than if you were to waste time in here."

The attitude of the woman needed some work. She spoke as if she was a superior being and he was a child. If only she knew what he was cable of she would change she would change her haughty tone. However, the mystery of her words made him curious on where this conversation was headed. For now, he would put his annoyance aside and play along with her. Caius pushed off the table to stand up. He shook her hand and introduced himself "Asmodeus huh? Pleasure to meet you. They call me Varian. I'm a former guild mage from out of the country." Varian was of course his fake alias he used to everyone outside of Grimoire Heart. The less she knew about his true self, the better.

Asmodeus spoke highly of warriors that would offer him a challenge that he so desired. Though one was currently unavailable, the other was the old man who stood behind her. He walked up and introduced himself Sebastian, a humble servant. Caius reached his hand out to shake his hand as well. "Pleasure to mee........." his words were cut off. As soon as he made eye contact, he felt an enormous pressure from the man. Caius placed his hand on his face as his vision would start to blur. He felt some strength being sapped from his body. It was a feeling he had known all too well. Yumi had it as well as the cult master that transformed him. It was the presence of an upper class demon. If it was affecting Caius, this man must have had great power. He shook his head and returned back to normal. "I apologize. This magic is still new to me and it takes a toll on the body. Good to meet you Sebastian. You too Aura and Mare."

A sudden eruptions of cheers emerged from the crowd. The final match of the day had finally come to a close. An arena staff worker interrupted the two of them and offered Caius a check for his winnings. However, the proposition of Asmodeus was still on the table. If they were indeed demons, Caius wanted to know more about them. Perhaps they sensed that he was one as well. He kept his demonic presence hidden and would only use it when necessary. Since the arena was starting to dwindle down, Caius had an idea. He spoke with the arena staff worker and brokered a deal to give them back the winnings but in exchange rent out the arena for the night once everyone was gone so it would be just the five of them. "Well then Asmodeus. Since you are being to kind I will accept your offer and spar with Sebastian. However just him. I don't want to hurt any of the kids. In a few minutes the arena should be clear. We can go there for our spar when you are ready. Does that sound good?

Gently shaking Varian's hand Asmodeus hummed softly "It's a pleasure to meet you Varian~" Yet after the little attempt to exchange his greeting with Sebastian Asmodeus raised a hand to her chin, seemingly fascinated by something. "Interesting, most mortals would be close to paralyzed if they met Sebastian's gaze. The fact you're still functioning suggests the twins might be right about you." Yet after his acceptance of her offer things started to get more hectic.


"Kid?! I'm already seventy-six years old!" Yet in response to the elf's words, Asmodeus raised a hand, instantly silencing the elf while the demon lord addressed the lass. "Forgive her outburst Varian~ She tends to forget that unlike a regular elf the people of Fiore aren't used to her kin." The boyish-looking elf huffed softly and crossed her arms beneath her chest while Mare explained in the same bashful tone as before. "W-We are dark elves..." yet Asmodeus merely shook her head with a smile. "It be wise not to take them too lightly Varian, those two have been able to wipe out entire platoons of trained knights."

She turned her gaze sideways at Sebastian who nodded his head in acceptance of the suggestion. "Let us head to the arena then, shall we?"

Asmodeus suggested as she waited for the arena to clear, and once things were prepared and the arena was rented for them the demon lord headed into the arena. It was your typical coliseum-styled arena, with sand coating the ground and no obstacles aside from the walls, and with the arena's large size space wouldn't be an issue Once all the people had gathered Asmodeus nodded her head slightly as she moved to the edge of the arena and tapped her foot, a large petal forming behind her that she used like a makeshift throne.

"Fight to your heart's delight, a victor will be chosen once one surrenders or is rendered unconscious, of course considering the two gentlemen I believe the latter is the only eligible choice."

Sebastian had moved twenty meters from the spot Varian was situated at, seemingly to give him a bit of proper space before the duel would begin, and yet it seemed before they would start that Asmodeus had a final thing to say. "Please don't disappoint our guest Sebastian... It would be unsightly for a servant of the Demon Lord of lust to do so."

Sebastian nodded his head slightly in return to his master's words, a hand resting on his chest while he addressed Varian. "If you are ready, I will grant you the opening move Varian." Meanwhile, both Mare and Aura were each standing at Asmodeus' her side, clearly interested in this match while Asmodeus herself lightly rested an arm on her makeshift throne and rested her cheek against the palm of her hand. She was pretty interested to see what about this man had drawn the interest of the twins...

76 years old? These little kids? Caius had met elves before but this seemed to be a special breed. Asmodeus certainly kept some interesting company. "My apologies I meant no offense. Despite that fact, I would like to keep it one on one." If what she said was true, the twins would just get in the way of his plans. Being a demon himself, he wished to learn more about Sebastian's abilities without outside interruptions. The arena soon cleared out after their discussion which allowed them to head to the fighting stage. Nobody was around so Caius could use this rare opportunity to let loose a little bit. If they decided to give him any problems, he could get rid of them all.

Asmodeus and the elven twins both went over the arena walls as the two combatants stood in the center of the arena. Caius glanced over to the mysterious woman and saw magic gather below her as a fresh flower bloomed and acted as a seat. Though the magic was impressive, it was what came next that caught his attention. As she laid out the rules and wished both warriors good luck, she casually name dropped she was a demon lord of lust. Demon Lord? It was the first he had heard of it. Caius had only given up his human vessel for power and was ignorant of demon realms and their culture. Were they here to recruit him? Did they know what he was? Were they were working the demon that transformed him? The unanswered questions raced through his mind. For now he decided just to focus on the task at hand and indulge them.  

Caius stood 20m away from the butler facing towards him. He held his left arm out in front of him with his right arm pulled back near his chest. His fists were clenched waiting for the battle to begin. The demon disguising himself as an old man was polite enough to give him the first move of their bout. “Very well. Prepare yourself" The battle would start right after that sentence finished. Caius wouldn't even need to move a muscle for his attack. His stance had already prepared everything he needed. Out of his clenched left fist, a stream of invisible crash magic would propel itself forward towards Sebastian. If it struck, it would no doubt shatter the old man's bones and send him flying to the ground unable to fight. Though he had a powerful aura, would he have the perception to see through this attack? If he fell right away he could move on to questioning Asmodeus but deep down Caius hoped the butler wouldn't disappoint him.

Despite his politeness, it was clear the old man was not your ordinary being, his hawk-like gaze focused at his opponent while a small surge of mana came from the hand that rested on his chest. It was somewhat similar to the tension one might have felt right before two trained warriors were about to clash blades, and when Caius finally made his opening move the battle began. His trained sight had noticed it, the way the sand was pushed aside made it clear something was approaching and Sebastian acted right the moment the sand started to shift from Caius' feet and dashed straight at him. Raising his remaining hand straight toward Caius a rush of black energy started to mold out into a mirror that was four by four meters while he continued to rush in a straight beeline at Caius.

Asmodeus's gaze softened as she hummed with a clear hint of interest. "Oh?" The invisible crash magic clashed against the black mirror, the wave of destructive energy seemingly struggling to overcome the barrier. However, with his heightened speed the old man had already crossed nearly half the distance by the time the barrier got clashed against, and by the time the barrier finally broke he was more than three-quarters of the distance.

Clenching his fist the demon butler went for a straight jab toward Varian's face. Depending on the reactionary speed of the man the hit might have been just what Sebastian needed to disorientate the man, yet whether his attack collided or not Sebastian would follow with a sudden sweep of his leg toward Caius's shin to force the man off-balance.

Aura whistled excitedly at the sight of their duel, humming excitedly.
"There it is again!" However, Mare's eyes seemed alit with excitement as he mumbled softly. "T-That spell, it's invisible but Sebastian still noticed it..."

The butler's gaze sharpened, gazing at Caius and declared firmly. "An impressive firepower..." Was all he said while Asmodeus' lips curved up slightly at the spectacle. "The lack of motions... fascinating~ Who of you two figured it out already?"

Aura tilted her head slightly to the side, clearly confused at the matter.
"I'm not sure Master, it's not an ordinary type of elemental magic." Yet Mare raised his voice just loud enough for Varian to hear him. "M-Mister Varian, do you expel your magic from certain limbs?"

Sharp, but without knowing what limb he did use one could clearly not be able to predict the nature of the magic. Now it was a matter of seeing how Varian would react to the high counter-attack by the demon butler.

Sebastian had good battle instinct that was for certain. As soon as the attack started to project forward, he was on the move rushing straight at him. For an old bag of bones, his speed was lightning fast. From what Caius could tell, it was even faster than his own. But while Sebastian had speed, Caius had power. Which one would prevail would be the key factor to the outcome in this clash of demons. To deal with the unknown blast, a black mirror was summoned from one of the butlers hands that collided with the crash magic around the 10m mark. However, it didn't seem to be able to break through initially. Caius knew another attack would be necessary because the man continued his charge with the mirror moving forward. The butler would soon be upon him with a full speed follow up attack.

With enough time to act, Caius had already prepared his next attack right when the mirror shattered .The best part of his new found crash magic was how smoothly each magic attack flowed together quickly. Only hand motions were required to unleash a destructive level force. Caius clenched his right hand causing a blast of crash to surround himself and expand outwards in an 8m dome. With the old man running at full speed only around 5m away and closing, there was no doubt he would get caught up in the blast of the attack. If it struck, the man's body would shatter and rag doll across the arena floor. Caius would stand his ground regardless and prepare himself in case the old man had a counter attack. If the attack was to hit. Caius would stare over to Asmodeus and the noisy elven twin to see what they though of the display.

It was quite an interesting spectacle to behold: Not only did Varian possess an astonishing amount of offensive power, an unnatural amount even, the fact that his spells seemed invisible made him a very daunting foe to behold. He was right in his assumption that considering the distance it would be impossible for Sebastian to dodge, but then again would that truly be the only option left for the butler? With him being less than five meters away from Varian, and still closing in one would have thought that the moment the sand started to shift again that Sebastian acted in a rather unexpected way.

The man's right fist clenched tightly while he lunged forwards, but instead of going straight for his opponent his trajectory changed into a downwards punch toward the ground, the moment his fist collided against the ground a wave of immense dark magic coursed in a 3 meters wide breach from the point of impact, knocking up both sand and causing the darkness to crash against the invisible destructive energy of the man's spell. And that wasn't where it ended! At the same time the magic clashed against Varian's own and negated it, Sebastian attempted to launch yet another attempt to close into melee range, yet this time he attempted to reach with a pair of swift jabs for Varian's hands, hoping to force them to turn in an open state while his knee swept for Varian's stomach!

Mare's eyes seemed quite fixated upon Varian's hands, seemingly starting to figure something out. Did Sebastian already do? Was that the reason why he had done those actions just now? Only time would tell, but dealing with those powerful spells was clearly taking its toll on him. It might have soon be a case where he lacked the mana to properly deal with this!

The old man was a perceptive one. Caius would give him that. Recognizing his attacks from the sand in the arena, Sebastian was yet again able to save himself from being struck by his attack. This time instead of a defensive mirror, the man directed his punch towards Caius to the ground instead. A dark wave of magic was able to sprout from the ground that clashed with his crash magic causing a violent explosion of power. A sand cloud from the arena covered them both as the magic dispersed in an even trade.The leftover particles from the darkness attack would disperse harmlessly when they landed on Caius body. The darkness demon surely was a worthy opponent. But now it was time to end things.

While the attack was impressive, it left the butler in a very vulnerable state. He killed off all momentum he gathered in order to stop and punch the ground. Though he was fast, he would still have stand back up and recover before charging at Caius again. This allowed ample time to prepare a follow up attack for the demon before any type of follow up attack. It was his most powerful spell. An upgraded version of the one he had used before. The reason he decided to go all out was because the butler had fended off his previous spells which were only one rank lower with ease. The man was also too close for comfort. Caius was more of a long range fighter and struggled in close combat. The butler should be honored he would get a taste of his full power. After the attacks collided, Caius quickly partially released and then clenched his right hand. A force strong enough to level buildings would be unleashed in a violent flurry outwards. With Sebas still getting up to close the gap, he would need another spell to stand against Caius' or else he would suffer a crippling blow.

He was too close, too close to evade that approaching attack by ordinary means. Feeling the sand distort again, but this time with a much greater violence than normally Sebastian could barely raise his left hand in time to launch his attack. A black orb emerged at the fingers of the man, rapidly expanding into a black beam that clashed against the invisible wave of destructive energy, while at the same time giving Sebastian the opportunity to grind to a halt, using the strength in his feet to propel himself backwards, using his legs similar to a spring.

However, at the same time, the black beam was clearly not enough to deal with the sheer destruction of Varian's attack, the beam of energy being rapidly pushed backwards, and soon the wave of energy was about to reach Sebastian when at the last moment his remaining hand tapped against his chest, right at the same time the beam of energy exploded and the wave of destructive magic belonging to Varian consumed everything.

Sand kicked around violently as the dome reached its full size, but in the end, there seemed to had not been a corpse or a ragged old man. Instead, a cloud of darkness emerged right beside Asmodeus, the butler kneeling on one leg as his suit seemed torn at the sleeves.

"I apologize for the unsightly tactic Master Asmodeus..." The demon lord simply shook her head with a smile, seemingly satisfied with the result. "You did fine Sebastian, I believe I understand now what drew the twins their interest. Mare, tend to his injuries~"

The dark elf nodded his head lightly as he rushed to the butler's side while Asmodeus clapped her hands lightly, rising from her seat as she approached Varian. "An excellent display of raw power Varian~ I can understand now why none of the combatants of this arena could satisfy you. In fact, for one with such raw offensive power, I doubt there are many in this realm that could handle such a blast like the last one. If it hit Sebastian it might have been enough to severely injure him straight away."

The demon lord's compliments carried a certain cheerfulness to them, yet she seemed clearly impressed by the display of power by the man, but what followed might have been a bit more curious. "Yet I can't help but wonder where such raw power comes from. It reminds me of a certain Demon who is renown for destroying everything in his path. Some call him the 'Demon of Destruction', yet it was different... Still, it is a fascinating power to behold~"

She hummed softly, despite the fact that Varian's own demon presence was sapping the strength of her vessel, she didn't show a single clue about it, instead remaining to uphold that playful and seemingly easygoing attitude she had displayed so far.
"Nonetheless~ I hope the battle entertained you somewhat, at the very least it was quite exciting to observe such destructive power."

The pulse of crash magic roared outwards as it went to claim Sebastian. Though he wasn't able to see it, he had no doubt in his mind that he had been crushed by his sheer power. After the blast settled, the clouds of sand slowly fell to ground giving him a clear view of the arena. Looking around, in front of him, he didn't see the butler anywhere on the ground. A slight panic overcame him as he jerked around to find him and response. The spell was strong but it wouldn't have obliterated him completely. Did he underestimate him? Was it some type of invisibility spell? As he scanned the area, he saw that Sebas had somehow returned back to Asmodeus and the twins unharmed. There was a small sigh of relief as it looked like the butler had conceded the battle kneeling back to his master.  "Crafty old man." he thought.

With his lust for battle sated, Caius walked over to the group of mysterious individuals to ask some questions that pondered his mind. He was grateful that the duel helped with his crash magic control. However, information was a strong weapon as well.  "Ah you're pet demon was not bad as well Asmodeus." Caius would reveal he knew what the man was the entire time. Judging by her words, it was almost confirmed they knew what he was.  It was just the 5 of them now so he could break his fake personality and let out his real intentions. The demonic demonic aura would pulsate from his body to all in front of him. The darkness burned like a black flame around all it consumed. The old man was most likely not to much of a threat anymore but he would pay gauge on how it affected the twins and master.

"My power is just as you said. I recently sold out my human vessel for the power of a demon. I have a close demon friend to thank for that." he would say referring to Yumi of Grimoire Heart. Though she was a tad crazy, her display of power was enough to convince him to turn.  Caius raised his left hand towards Asmodeus. His face was not one to be played with as he threatened the busty master.  "As far as this demon of destruction, I could care less. Let's cut the bullshit. If a demon is serving you then you must have some type of rank. Who exactly are you and what do you want with me? If you expect me to serve you then you are sorely mistaken. Out with it before i lose my patience." He narrowed his eyes as magic would start to gather in his arm. She would have two choices. Answer now or die.

PERKS


DEMONIC PRESENCE:
When someone is facing a demon and they are ranked lower than the demon they will suffer from Fear which distorts their vision and makes them tremble while battling the demon. Fear causes Strength, Speed and Endurance to be dropped by 10% per difference in rank level.

The demonic presence of the man was intense, to the point that Asmodeus briefly staggered, a hand raised to her face as she tried to shake off the intimidating presence of the man. While Sebastian was on the brink of getting back on his feet and Aura was seemingly ready to attack, the demon lord raised her free hand to motion for them to stay back. "A demon only serves when he has something to gain out of it, an important thing to keep in mind 'Varian'."

Asmodeus hummed softly while shaking her head briefly. "I really should work on improving Esperia's compatibility, to think your presence would affect me this strongly..." She chuckled briefly before her smile faded away and her tone carried a certain hint of danger, not like a physical threat, but rather, it was similar to having a beautiful scarf around your neck, yet somehow you had the feeling a viper was lurking within, ready to bite at your throat when you let down your guard for a second. "It's understandable that you lack awareness of the abyss and the way things work among our kin. To answer your question without boring you with a history lesson: Among the demons of the Abyss seven, in particular, are known to be considered the pinnacle of their hierarchy: The Demon Lords who embody the Seven Deathly sins."

She waited a moment, seemingly observing Varian's reaction to this revelation before continuing. "The Demon Lord of Wrath, The Demon lord of Greed, The Demon Lord of Sloth, The Demon Lord of Envy, The Demon Lord of Pride, The Demon Lord of Gluttony, and finally the Demon Lord of Lust"

While she visibly changed her expression a few times, suggesting amusement at the mentioning of Wrath, Pride and Envy, she seemed somewhat indifferent at the remaining names.

"Baal, Beelzebub, Belphegor, Leviathan, Lucifer, Mammon... Asmodeus. Those Seven controlled the Abyss, at least till recently."

Asmodeus hummed the last bit as Aura chimed in. "Several hundred years ago the mortal races considered The Demon Lords too great of a threat and banded together under the leadership of the Church and its Holy Knights to lead a crusade against us. The first time that they actually all worked together."

Asmodeus smiled briefly as she continued. "Although they held the advantage of numbers, they weren't exactly able to overcome the raw power of a Demon Lord, especially when unrestrained by the limitations of a mortal vessel. However, during the war certain events led to a rather curious ending. The other Demon Lords disappeared, and with their full might turned onto me even my army could only force a stalemate. Although I take displeasure in admitting it, my talents are in a different field compared to the raw power of the other lords, so when a demon from the Abyss tried to betray me by leading an elite legion of the church's greatest warriors? I decided to give the demon a suitable punishment and fought the legion. Unfortunately, it appeared that the demon wasn't the only one with a clever little plan."

She looked straight at Varian, trying her best to keep her sight focused as she continued the tale. "They possessed a peculiar type of magic that could seal even a Demon Lord within a mortal vessel, a smart move considering the slaying of a demon will usually just make it return to the Abyss, waiting to reform. So rather than being forced to deal with me once more, they decided to seal me within a vessel, a little prison so to speak~"

She mused the last bit out loud before she continued. "It's why unlike most demons I been able to enjoy a certain degree of comfort from being hunted down, in the end if they kill my vessel I would be free once more, a choice the church would soon regret. Nonetheless, it also makes me believe the remaining Demon Lords are within similar circumstances."

Still, there was one more matter to discuss, wasn't there?

"But to address the subject of what I want out of you: I was merely trying to see for myself whether the twins their assumption was correct, in the end, it's not often you find a demon with such power within this realm, so my curiosity was stirred. Besides, until I regain my true strength and gather a certain group of people, I tend to lay down low a little myself~ I have little use for getting a lot of attention already, so I'd rather play the role of a helpful benefactor to a naive little girl, than for the world to gain awareness of my plans~"

Asmodeus would stagger at the pressure he emitted but managed to compose herself. This revealed that she was a weaker being than Caius. There was nothing to be afraid of from her in a fight. Regardless of that fact, he wanted to hear her out. As a new demon, he should try to learn what lie in store from him and what their culture would be like if he ran into more in the future. Yumi would never teach him as she was too busy spouting out her religious nonsense. This woman would have to do as a teacher.

A history lecture soon followed as Caius listened closely to every detail. The Abyss was the demon's homeland where it was ruled by 7 lords. One name rung a bell in his head. The demon of pride who actually was a close friend of his named Odin. This information was put in the back of his mind. It was a chip to use for later.

Continuing the story, the 7 demon lords seemed to be enemies with the holy knights and were taken out one by one in the ensuing war between them. Rather than killed, they were sealed into mortal vessels to reduce their power level. In her case, it was the form of a tiny little girl. Most likely it was the reason why a man as strong as Sebas was fighting in her place. As far as why she wanted to meet with Caius, it was just to sate her curiosity of his power which he more than obliged.

After the tale was finished Caius only could smile."A fine lesson. If I recall, you said you were the lord of lust right?" He couldn't contain it as he let out a mocking chuckle. "What rubbish. You can't even stand up to my aura and failed to beat the holy knights with the full power of your allies. Not only that, but you all got captured and weakened. I know demons far stronger than them and your butler. If this is what you call a lords power than, we are gods." He spit off to side as if to disrespect their title.


"That being said" Caius would lower his hand down to ease the tension between the two of them. "The backstory of these demon lords does intrigue me. I happen to be a part of a guild with vast resources. You said the demon of pride yes? One of my guild mates hosts him in his body. Lucifer the fire demon I believe his name was. He has long given up on that dream and serves us faithfully now. Times have changed. I can take you to him if you would like. I'm sure he has an idea where the other five are. But in exchange for this I would request you and your servants pledge yourself to our guild. It's not a bad deal if I do say so myself.

Grimoire Heart was a guild full of dark beings so these demons would be welcome with open arms. They got more power in their ranks and she got her demon lord. Caius was a man of opportunity though he was skeptical of this woman's haughty attitude. Depending on her reaction, things could be making an interesting turn.

Hearing the mocking chuckle of Caius Asmodeus' smile didn't waver, instead replying in bemusement. "Underestimating the potential of others is a dangerous flaw Varian, one that got plenty of powerful individuals killed, and the demon lords sealed away." Yet at his disrespect of the Demon Lords and his reference to being gods she could barely contain her laughter at his arrogance. If she was at her full power then surely she could have dealt with him, perhaps even just grant Sebastian a sliver of his true potential to crush the man.

Yet it was what followed that brought a curious statement, one that made the Demon Lord's eyes seemingly sharpen in their gaze. "Hmm so Lucifer has awakened also? Curious~" The Demon Lord mused softly yet at the idea of pledging her loyalty to an unknown guild the Demon Lord merely shook her head.

"I'd have to pull a raincheck on that invitation~" She folded up her arms behind her back while musing out aloud. "Despite her inexperience, Esperia is quite well-liked among the members of the guild she belongs to and has developed a fondness for its guild master and several of her fellow guild members. Were she to disappear to another guild it would likely raise too my questions and suspicions that I currently don't need~"

She took a step backwards while leaning slightly forwards and humming softly. "But knowing where Lucifer is, and the fact they got the loyalty of a powerful demon like yourself certainly makes it an attractive invitation. Perhaps something I'll consider for the future."

A playful salute followed by the Demon Lord as she raised a hand to her cheek and pondered for a moment. "But for the time being I believe it's time I get back to my own shenanigans. It was truly a pleasure to meet you Varian~"

With a light gesture she beckoned the twins over who had just finished tending to Sebastian and prepared to leave the arena.
