Odin
It started just as any other day for Odin. He woke up, not that he actually slept much now that he was an undead. It was something he often had to remind himself of. Having spent more than two decades as human, there had been some changes to becoming a Lich that he simply hadn’t been able to comprehend. Putting his hands through where his stomach had been, or through his empty eye sockets had certainly been one the largest ones, but sleeping, eating, breathing, they had been equally challenging to overcome. The first few years of his revival had been sloppy compared to who he was now. He lived up to the title of Wizard Lord. He was unbreathing, unfeeling, unliving. It made the entire being of Odin much more intimidating, and he had Zagan to thank for it. The Black Key, a unique artefact he and a group of others had retrieved for the demon during an expedition into the Sieghart Mountains, it had been hugely responsible for his change. It had turned him from a former human, bumbling his way through undeath, into a true Lich in every sense of the word. And it hadn’t even been an intentional effect of the mission.

Exploring the ancient dragon Argyle’s Dungeon had brought the group face to face with the Black Key. But, as many things protected by dragons was, it had been enchanted. Anything that touched it felt the power of time and aged until it was dust. Quick thinking Zane had spotted it before anyone had lost their lives to the effects of time. However, they had required the item, and it made the most sense that Odin himself be the one to pick it up. After all, he couldn’t be affected by time. He was immortal. He no longer aged, no longer felt the effects of time on his body. What he hadn’t accounted for, was the effect of time on his mind. For, as he touched the Black Key, his mind felt the passage of time just as his body did. That meant, for poor Odin, that he experienced almost a century in his own mind. He felt every moment of every minute of every hour pass by in his mind, days becoming months, months becoming years, years becoming decades. What passed for everyone else in mere moments had altered Odin’s soul forever. It was safe to say that he wouldn’t be the same again.

So sleep was a rare occurrence for him now, as he had spent so long in his mind that he knew it was longer a requirement. Exhaustion was something he had not felt in decades, he could walk for days without ever getting tired, spend weeks in a desert and never require a drink. The obvious solitary life that came with it was sometimes overshadowed by the unique effects it brought. After all, he could never be poisoned, never left to rot away. He was always a threat, and no one could ever change that. And, more importantly, the isolation was never something that the Lich had felt. For he had HER, his immortal goddess, trapped for centuries and seeking a way out through the use of HER champion. Previously, SHE had simply acted through the Midnight Cult, but Odin’s fervour and devotion had set him aside, and SHE came to him during his darkest hour, bringing him new purpose and a new task. Once everything was finished in Bosco, and Hildegard was on the throne, Odin was to seek out and destroy the Bishops of Midnight Cult, and finally begin the reformation of a group that has spent far too long in the shadows. It was time for them to burst out into the surface and take over.

But first, of course, Hildegard. As he got up from the bed they had prepared for him, the Lich noticed a letter sitting on the bedside table next to him. His accommodation was fairly minimalist, to be expected given that the resources were to be prioritised on those who truly needed them. The fact that Odin had even been given true shelter in the form of a makeshift cabin was already more than he really needed, but he appreciated the privacy more than anything else. Perhaps that was because he was always plotting to do evil, but that wasn’t really that important to the demi humans and elves who lived around him. They didn’t know him as the Wizard Lord, they knew him as the helpful and strong Lich who protected them from rebels and saved dinosaurs from Stella. It wasn’t a bad reputation to currently have, and it definitely made it easier to act as he himself wished. Living with any of the other Fiorians would make it far too difficult to move in the shadows and do as he wanted. This way was much more to Odin’s liking. They elves stayed out of his way and allowed him to do anything as long as he completed the missions that occasionally found their way to his desk.

The first mission for Odin, naturally, was to find out how the fuck a letter ended up on his desk in the first place. The door was always locked, and most of the elves wouldn’t dare to enter the cabin without the express, and explicit, permission of the Lich. The other inhabitants of the settlement had known that the penalty for breaking that rule, even without knowing who they were living with, would be a slow and incredibly painful death. It might have had something to do with the fact that Odin had accidentally released his Fear aura at one point in the village, and they had all passed out for the better half of a day. From then, they made a point of staying out of his way. It was a perfect situation for him, better than any he had in Fiore, especially given he had just escaped from a jail cell. Opening the letter carefully, ensuring it wasn’t enchanted to explode in his face or anything, the red orbs that made up Odin’s eyes flickered slightly. It was closest thing to exhilaration that the skeletal form of the Lich could ever show, and it was for good reason. This letter had come from Hildegard herself and, more importantly, it smelled of death.

Perhaps she hadn’t written it explicitly herself, but it had her seal, and that already gave the mission a sense of importance.

Dear Odin Morningstar,
It has been discovered that, in the forests near your location, the animals have recently become more agitated, and the wood from the trees is brittle and weak. Something feels wrong, and I don’t like having bad trees or sad animals. Look around the area, find the source of this change and, if possible, deal with it. I don’t want anyone to die from this increase in fear.


The no killing part was pretty annoying, but Odin had become used to the stipulation in his missions. The two he had partaken in when joined by Raymus, the blue haired werewolf, he had required that Odin refrain from killing unless absolutely necessary. For one of their missions it definitely had been, since otherwise he might’ve died -in other words, Odin definitely saved his life- but the Lich had stuck to the rules for their sabotage against Reiner’s group. It wasn’t entirely difficult for him not to kill, it just often made a lot easier to deal with his problems. Someone running their mouth, burning down the forest and trying to hurt Hildegard’s reputation? Killing them was a definite way to stop any of that from continuing.

Odin
But today he’d play ball, as he dressed himself in his cloak, even choosing to sport a wide brimmed hat today. The sun was starting to be annoying, bleaching his bones made them feel much weaker than they had any right to be, especially given the Lich’s high levels of physical strength. The last thing he needed was his bones breaking from the force of his own punch after all, that would just be embarrassing. He got a few looks from the elves, most of them thinking he looked rather dapper and, to be honest, they were absolutely right. He did look great, with a shield strapped to his back and Morrigan’s staff being used as a fake walking aid. It was always more fun to give the impression of weakness to any that wanted to try him. It made the realisation and horror on their faces that much more satisfying. And, if nothing else, Odin lived for the theatrics of being evil as much as he could. He had a purpose and chose to do it in the most efficient way. The wide brimmed hat, realisation, everything else was purely for his own enjoyment. He was immortal after all, he might as well enjoy his undeath. Otherwise it would be incredibly boring.

Odin
The first thing he had to do was locate the actual area Hildegard had been speaking of in her letter. Luckily the heiress had thought many moves ahead, as she often did. Perhaps it was because she was an elf, or the youngest of the siblings, but it almost seemed as though people underestimated Hildegard much more often than they didn’t. While Odin didn’t know much about how she particularly felt about it, he had gleamed quite a lot from his, albeit extremely brief, meeting with the royal. The meeting had only been about discussing where the best wood in the area could be found -it was the East apparently- but Odin saw glimpses of a shrewd ruler. Hildegard was smarter than most gave her credit for, and that alone could be a powerful boon as the ruler of a nation as large and important as Bosco. As one of Fiore’s only links to the rest of the continent, being on good terms and having a strong leader in Bosco was definitely needed. Cassia was too focussed on diplomacy; Wilhelm on war; Reiner on infrastructure and Brunhild on religion. They each excelled at what they did but had glaring weaknesses. What would Cassia do if someone declared war on Bosco? Likely crack under the pressure.

Odin
Hildegard, on the other hand, had found the balance. She was reforming the entire structure of Bosco’s royalty, while still staying in charge. She could focus on the important matters of state without worrying about every detail in every county. She had tamed the dinosaurs and had Wilhelm to assist in matters of war. In matters of diplomacy, she knew what she wanted and knew how to obtain it. She wouldn’t allow anyone belittle her in the courtroom, and Odin had to commend her for that. He was excited, something he hadn’t felt in a while, for what he knew she could, and likely would, do for her country. And once change had hit Bosco, the next step would be to extend it towards Fiore. Hildegard was Odin’s test, she was Eternal Nightmare’s test. If she could change her country, and if it could work, then there would be a precedent for the drastic changes required in the monarchy that formed Fiore’s government. All he needed was that precedent, that would be enough to enact it. Right now, Odin was simply a revolutionary trying to make something insane happen. The moment it became slightly less insane, that’s when he would start to win, and that would be when the King would suffer.

For now, however, Odin was to rely on Hildegard. Everything hinged on her ascending the throne, and he was required to make that happen. If he helped her, she would indirectly help him. Not only would she command trade between Bosco and Fiore, she would be that symbol that he needed. As he turned over the letter she had sent him, Odin spotted an insignia. It almost looked like deer antlers, but made out of letters? Stating the characters out loud would create a spell circle on the paper, before the words that had formed a letter began to fade away, replaced by a colourful image, almost like a painting. It didn’t take long for the Lich to realise what he was looking at: a highly detailed map of the area, complete with the settlement and even a little skeleton that seemed to denote Odin’s exact location. It was more likely that it depicted wherever the map itself was, as he knew for a fact he wouldn’t have allowed tracking magic to be placed upon him, and it was much easier to track an item rather than a person using magical means. Using physical means, well you could just ask where someone was so that was definitely easier.

There was also a very helpful ‘x’ marked on the map, to the southeast of the Lich’s current location. It made sense, especially give that the area of the map in question was seemingly coated in a dark mist-like substance, that that was where Odin was headed. It definitely looked like brittle and weak wood, or at least the place to try and find out why wood was brittle and weak. It also now made sense why Odin had been asked and not some other underling of the future queen: this was clearly some kind of death magic, and who better to find out the source than one of the only people in existence that could not be affected by death magic. After all, you can’t kill that which is already dead, despite how often people have tried. It was maybe an hour’s walk from the Lich’s location, so he figured that he might as well half that time as much as possible. He walked towards the outskirts of the settlement first. After all, the inhabitants may have gotten used to seeing a Lich, but Nemesis was something else entirely. A deep breath was had, taken in such a way as to cause Odin’s entire skeleton to emit a high frequency sound, a sound that only one creature could possibly hear.

Odin
While Nemesis could fly -its undead, rotting wings were much more powerful than they looked- that was unnecessary for today. After all, Odin didn’t want to scout ahead, he wanted to see and feel the death magic as soon as he came close. Approaching it from one hundred metres in the air wouldn’t help that situation at all. This was simply to allow Nemesis the chance to walk around Bosco, as he rarely got the chance to explore a land as empty and free. Fiore had its moments but, like with Odin, many people didn’t enjoy seeing undead creatures, even something as miraculous as an undead Winged Dhuilin. They truly were blessed and they had no idea, to be able to bask in the presence of such beings. Maybe one day the humans would understand, Odin was someone to be worshipped AND feared, not one or the other. He was the closest thing to a god they had: unfeeling, immortal and capable of great destruction if he so wished. And if they could view Odin as a god, then perhaps SHE would see him as something akin to an equal, just as the Lich wished SHE would. Equally immortal even if not equally powerful, they could reign over the world together forever.

There was nothing he would like more than for that to come to pass, however he knew it required a lot of work. And that work started now, as they passed through some trees, perhaps a quarter of the way to their intended destination. But, as always, something was there to interrupt the plan. A loud roar came from slightly further into the forest, followed by the angry shouts from various humans, or at least they sounded like humans -slightly dumber than the average being. Approaching slowly, Nemesis staying as quiet as he possibly could which, for an undead horse was quite stealthy, they would both view the scene and grasp the situation very simply. A group of bandits, definitely human given what they were doing, were trying to capture a young velociraptor in a bamboo cage. Casting his gaze across the other cages, Odin spotted two more velociraptors, likely siblings due to the similar size to the current prey, as well as four demi-humans: a feline, canine, amphibian and reptilian from what the Lich could tell at a glance. Poachers, looking to sell the native animals of Stella as well as make slaves of the demi-humans. It would make anyone sick to their stomach and, even though he was lacking a stomach specifically, Odin echoed that reaction.

If only there was someone there that could protect them. Someone, perhaps a dashingly dressed Lich, who was working together with Hildegard to enlist the aid of Stellan’s dinosaurs as well as protecting the fleeing demi humans from bandits raids and poachers. Oh wait, there was exactly someone like that standing directly in the path of the poachers, sitting his staff and shield against a nearby tree. He rarely got to stretch his bones, he wanted to do this one hand to hand. But, as the metallic grey of Greed began to stretch across his skeletal form, coating him as a liquid would flow over a submerged body before becoming tangible and strong. It was carbon based, as hard as diamond, and as such had the unique and handy little power of nullifying any physical damage that these men would be able to throw at him. Given they didn’t seem to be using magic, coupled with the fact that they had spears, swords and what looked like brass knuckles attached to their belts, backs and hands respectively, Odin figured that would be most of what they could do. He placed a hand out, signalling for Nemesis to stay out of the fight, despite the fact that the undead dhuilin could likely rip the heads off of at least one of the bandits. Odin wanted to have some fun.

It was then that he was interrupted. A loud roar echoed throughout the forest, stunning both the Lich and the poachers. The difference was that the poachers instantly knew what it was. Odin had no idea. After all, there were so many different things that could produce loud sounds in the forests around Stella, many different species of dinosaur, how was he to know one from another. In fact, he was curious as to how the poachers seemed to know it. They didn’t look particularly bright, and it was unlikely that one of them was a scientist or someone who had any kind of expert knowledge of the animal cries in Stella. Maybe the Lich was wrong, but that would be a rare occurrence so he just assumed that he wasn’t. His questions were shortly answered with a laugh from Odin. He had not expected the next few moments to happen, nor had he expected them to be so hilarious. It proved one thing correct: the velociraptors in the cages had been siblings, and definitely children. Large footsteps began to sound through the forest, getting closer and closer to their location until she appeared. At least, Odin assumed it was the mother.

Odin
Quite possibly the size of a house, with razor sharp claws -or were they talons? Odin had honestly no idea about the anatomy of Stellan’s dinosaurs- and fangs as fearsome as its mighty name would suggested. A mother velociraptor, likely one that had eaten its vegetables as a child. Or, in this case, feasted on the flesh of her enemies. Luckily, as was often becoming the case, Odin didn’t actually have any flesh, thus making him a great person to calm the carnivores. It’s not like they were going to eat him. Anyway, back to the velociraptor and, more importantly, the now terrified poachers. It seemed apparent that they had raided her nest while she slept, stealing her children and trying their best to make a getaway before she woke. Now, unfortunately for them, she was definitely awake and, as far as Odin could tell, hungry. The tricky part was no longer taking out the poachers (not that he had expected much resistance on that front as it was) but instead in protecting the demi humans, and showcasing to the mother raptor that the ones in cages were not the enemy. Maybe he’d be lucky and the mother would be incredibly intelligent, knowing who her foes were.

No matter what Odin thought, he was interrupted once again. It was becoming an incredibly frequent annoyance, although in this specific case he was willing to allow it, as the mother velociraptor bit down on one of the men from high above, ripping his head clean off as his entire body went limp, blood spurting out of the newly formed hole where his neck had once stood. The screams from the others was palpable, and brought with it a bloodlust Odin had forgotten he could have. Killing wasn’t allowed so long as it was against nature, dinosaurs, or anything that could be perceived as an ally. Against poachers, and those that endangered the lives of the people, he could go all out. He dashed towards the first of them, swinging his ancient staff with reckless abandon as it crushed the jaw of a female poacher that was unfortunate enough to be closest in position to Odin. The audible snap and following blood meant she would likely never be able to heal from it fully, except from the simple fact that it didn’t matter if she even could. She was knocked back to a nearby tree from the force of the blow, her body folding almost in half from the force as her spine shattered and she died instantly.

It was good that the demi humans had closed their eyes from the bloodshed. They didn’t want to see what the raptor was going to do to the poachers, and Odin didn’t want them to see what he also had planned. Three of them remained, a female with a spear, male with a sword and another male with fisticuffs. Odin would be the generous one and wait to see what the raptor mother wished to do first. After all, he was not going to be so bold as to deny the dinosaur her meal. As he watched, the mother went almost exclusively for the swordsman, leaving two more for Odin to deal with, which was exciting. He didn’t get to face many spear users, it was a dying art that even he himself had moved away from, having once owned the spear used by the god Odin himself: Gungnir. That had been many years ago now, back when the Lich had been human, and vessel to the demon Lucifer. The spear had been incredibly powerful, and able to move through the air at its own pace directed by Odin. He had even fought Kazimir with it, back before either of them had become the names they now possessed.

Odin
This poacher, however, was not as intimidating as Odin had been back then, and her weapon definitely had nothing on Gungnir, as it attempted to pierce the Lich’s flesh. Except, there were a couple of problems with that idea in general. For one, Odin didn’t actually have flesh, so its not like he was going to crumble and bleed on the ground, slowly dying as he watched the last spark of life leave his eyes. He had been there once before, but it had been from a dagger and, more importantly, he had been the one doing the stabbing as well. Although, to call it suicide would probably also be incorrect. He definitely killed himself, but here he still was, so technically it likely wouldn’t hold up in a court. After all, he had died once more in prison and his bounty had increased. Apparently being a Lich meant the law worked differently around you. He got special treatment, and death wasn’t an easy way to just get out of doing community service. The second problem was the metallic grey armour that was currently coating Odin’s form. Even if he had actually been human the weapon would have done nothing to him, that was the power of Greed magic.

Odin
He always wondered why it was called Greed. Was it because he was actually wanting to be stabbed, slashed or pierced? Greedy for pain but unable to feel it? That seemed wholly masochistic and not at all like how Odin was. It was an oddly named magic, but it was also one of the most powerful abilities the Lich had ever possessed, with perhaps the exception of Black Plague. That had been a strong magic, ultimately proving too strong for the Lich to keep. He tried not to dwell on it, as it would have no impact on the fact that he no longer had the power, but he did sometimes miss the incredible strength he had felt while using it. But the woman was more important. Maybe she was hoping that it was actually going to kill the Lich, but she was extremely misinformed. Looking down at the spear that simply sat in front of the armour, Odin would take hold of it, using his excessive strength to pull the woman towards him, grabbing her by the throat and lifting her up. She screamed for her mother, father, anyone to help her in that moment, but she was not going to be saved. Her salvation would never arrive.

Odin had done some unspeakable things in the past, but what transpired in those few minutes was arguably some of the worst thing he had ever done. Slowly removing limbs, pulling out fingernails, most important ripping out her tongue so she couldn’t escape the pain through death, or scream for any more help. The final man -swordsman had been long dead by this point- ran towards the velociraptor, wanting the quicker death brought on by the dinosaur rather than the pain and torture that Odin could inflict. It was likely the best option, as a quick swipe from the mother’s talons/claws ripped the man to shreds in an instant. He got his wish all right, but now came the trickier part. Odin had to convince the mother velociraptor not to just kill the demi humans locked in cages, while also freeing the children velociraptors. Looking at the mother, she was already eyeing up her next meals, and even the younger raptors seemed content to attack their fellow captives, which was extremely rude if Odin were to be asked. Then again, no one did, in fact, ask him, so he just had to get on with his job. After all, this wasn’t even what he had been tasked with.

He had much more important things to be getting on with. Thankfully, he had ripped the woman apart so there was a lot for him to use as a lure for the raptors, and that was exactly what he did. He knew they enjoyed flesh after all, why not enjoy some more. Opening the cages that housed the younger raptors, they instantly jumped at Odin and snapped with their fangs. Thankfully Greed was still active and, as soon as they realised Odin would not be a delicious meal, they left him alone, snapping once more at the demi humans they had been captured with. The Lich could understand how they felt, being trapped as they were with almost no hope. They had already given up after being captured in the first place, resigning themselves to becoming slaves for underground gang bosses and others who wished to exploit their natural abilities. They welcomed the death instead, at least it freed them from a life of captivity, but Odin was going to make sure they got neither. The sadness and immense loneliness was something even he had felt once, when his then best friend had murdered him and all had seemed lost. Then, he had been saved by HER, the Goddess that had given him a new purpose.

While they wouldn’t get saved by a mystical, all powerful goddess, they demi humans would still definitely have someone to thank for the new hope that had been brought into their lives. Picking up one of the arms of the former poacher, Odin swung with all his might to toss it into the forest, watching the raptor children chase after it. The mother, seeing the arm as a snack more than a meal, didn’t bother wasting her time, which meant he would have to get creative. There were two other dead that still had corpses, and there was a fairly sharp sword. That gave the Lich an idea. Taking the sword, he began to hack away at the bodies, removing limbs and decapitating the recently deceased to use their flesh in feeding a hungry family of very hungry dinosaurs. The limbs specifically were used mostly to sate the younger dinosaurs, while the mother feasted on the torsos and upper thigh, the meatier sections of the poachers. He would throw their meals away into the forest, watching them run after the food and using that time to free the demi humans, pointing them in the direction of the settlement he had just come from. There, they would be safe.

Even kinder was Odin, as he gave the demi humans Nemesis to ride on, just to ensure more dinosaurs and poachers would not attack them. The undead dhuilin neighed reluctantly at the idea, as the demi humans seemed to echo his sentiments. Neither of them trusted the other but, with the release of his Fear aura and the general commanding tone he took with Nemesis, they quickly got over those grievances. The now freed captives hopped on the undead horse, who began to trot towards the village, planning on returning to Odin as soon as his task was complete. He chose not to fly, reserving that honour only for the Lich who commanded him. It was probably for the best given that he didn’t think the demi humans would be able to handle Nemesis if he did decide to fly and, after all the effort the Lich had put into actually saving the demi humans from the poachers it would be a real shame if they were to die from literally falling off their saviour’s flying horse. It would be tricky trying to explain that one to Hildegard, and even worse if they fell anywhere close to the settlement. Imagine seeing your fellows fall from the sky and splat across your doorstep. Horrific scenes.

With the raptors freed, the demi humans on their way home, and Odin finally free to move onto what he was actually supposed to be doing, he began to make his way further southeast, where the map was taking him. Looking at the piece of parchment once more, the Lich spotted a change to its appearance. Where he had just stood previously there was now a small image of some happy velociraptors and demi humans. Whatever magic was powering this map, it clearly had a sense of humour. Odin hoped that wouldn’t mean there were more interruptions planned on his route, as he was actually quite excited to see what the fuss was about with these trees. After all, it involved death magic, which meant that, whatever it was, it was going to be interesting. Death magic was never boring, regardless of what dullard was using it. Odin was literally unliving proof of that fact: as a human he had been incredibly dull, but sprinkle a bit of death magic on him and he became a Wizard Lord, and one of the most feared mages in Fiore. Who doesn’t love that. Well, the good guys, but they always had terrible opinions on things like this. Odin was cool, no denying that.
