He had nearly refilled for the night. Bael at his side as he silently walked through the alleys of the Black Dragon territory. Half of his souls had been found in West Spector once again. The street whores the ideal picking for him to consume. A wry smile crossed his lips for a moment and then vanished. Already he had taken two from this area of the city. He remembered what Octavia had said about going for the drugged or homeless. He had taken her advice but now and then he wanted to treat himself. The soul of children were always the most delicious. For himself and Bael.

Turning a corner he found a child digging through the trash behind a shop. Perfect. Approaching the child he reached for them and they nearly fell from their tower of crates they used to be able to look into the dumpster. “Surely there are better things for you to eat?” he said his voice lacking any kind of real emotion. Clearly this made the child worried as they started to fight his hold on their shoulder. “Calm down.” He said trying to put reassurance in the influx to calm the boy. “Are you that desperate for food that you can’t work for something better?” fake concern laced his voice. Bael snickered from the shadows drawing the child’s attention.

The boy screamed. Having seen the face of the creature from nightmares. “Bother.” He said and his grip tightened on the boy’s shoulder and then wrapped the other around their waist and pulled them from their pile of crates. He pulled them to the shadows and drew the dagger from under the sleeve of his shirt. “I would say you brought this on yourself. But…” now a smile crossed his lips. A true smile. One of glee. Slitting the child’s throat he waited for the soul to break free and consumed it. Then Bael came from the shadows to take the child’s body and began to feast.

"What the fuck." Era hadn't made it down from the rooftop in time to save the kid but she'd seen what he was doing from the tops. Era was on patrol, as usual in Black Dragon territory, during her Spider-Gwen thing to descent at the scream of the child but just as the man slit the kid's throat Era dropped to the ground and saw the thing devouring the kid's body. She was too stunned to move and the hurt in her chest overwhelmed her and she dropped to her knees. "What the fuck did you do to Cadence?" The little boy had had a little girl's name and was one of Era's favorites at headquarters.

He'd always been polite and charming, albeit a little thin for being starved. Era dropped her to knees and began to sob, she wasn't fearful. She didn't expect anything to be able to hurt her, not with the warding curses and spells she'd been practicing and implementing. Era didn't know what this man was, besides a monster, but her current wards protected her from harm for at least another hour. If she attacked anyone that went away, she couldn't maintain offense and defense at the same time, but curling into herself on her knees seemed an appropriate response to a young kid's life being expunged. "What the fuck is wrong with you?"

Wrong with him? Oh she would need to be more specific than that. The smile faded from his lips as he looked at the woman on her knees. Perhaps he should take her soul next. He wasn't sure what to say to her. So the child had had a name? It was of no importance to the meister as he looked over at Bael who was devouring the once living human. Turning his attention back to the woman he raised a brow. Had it been someone special to her? Not that it mattered to him. Hades would do as needed to serve his Goddess and keep himself and Bael alive.

"It's life." he finally said to her with a small shrug of his shoulders. "We need to feed and a child's soul." he licked his lips. "Delicate." he turned his back on the woman to watch Bael finish his meal. They would need to move on. Octavia wouldn't be happy with him for being seen but it couldn't be helped now. He insisted on staying in the shadows unlike much of his family. Meisters were still not much liked no matter where they went. "Bael." he said to the creature who turned to him with a grin on its sightless face. "Finish so we may find another."

He only needed one more to be finished for the night. It caused him to wonder if people noticed that there were seven people going missing every other day? Yes he filled his well constantly. Did not want to risk it running too low after all. His family needed him.

"You're a monster." Era cried, hot tears streamed down her cheeks in waves and stung her flesh as they hit as if she'd been sunburnt. But in reality, she was crying vir. It didn't do anything of her magically save potentially make her more infectious to those more humanly around her, but it also wasn't something she could control. As she cried, her souls leaked even swifter forcing her well to reach out to the nearest soul and start tugging. Unfortunately, that was the soul of Cadence… the young child the heartless man before her had carelessly murdered… and devoured.

She'd been practicing for so long to try and take down the evil of this world. And while she hadn't been explicitly successful by the definition, she couldn't just let someone in her territory murder a child right in front of her eyes. Era wiped the vir tears on the back of her hand and the thriving symbiot seemed to sink back into her flesh as she steadied herself on her feet. "Monsters don’t deserve to live." One of the spells Era had been practicing was something she called a spirit bomb, it rallied almost half of her expansive well and chucked it towards the creature Hades commanded—though she'd been aiming towards the man himself. It was an impressive blast, had she known exactly what the man before her had been she might have run the opposite direction.

But the adrenaline pumping through her veins didn't allow such a thing.

Ishe, feel free to kick her ass, just don't kill her

Monster. That was a good word for him. Even Hades had to agree that he was a monster. But he enjoyed being the monster. He enjoyed being the thing that parents would tell their kids to make them behave. A smile crossed his face as she stood and faced him. Oh she was sassy. She spoke again but still Hades didn't feel the need to reply to her. Nothing she was saying was new to his ears. He had been hearing this for decades.

He felt a pull and before he knew what was happening a spell of some kind was aimed at Bael. "No!" he yelled and drew on his own well. Thrusting the power into his construct he infused the creature with earth. It drained almost half his well to do it but when the smoke from falling debris and trash finally settled Bael was still there. Turning Hades felt an emotion that he wasn't used to. Anger. "No one harms what is mine." he said his voice seething with hate.

Moving towards her he drew on the earth again. Had to be careful or he was going to use up all of his well on this girl. Small pebble like rocks around them lifted from the ground and he sent them flying at her like a spray of bullets from an automatic gun. Getting closer he looked down at her and pulled the knife from its sheath on his belt. "What gives you the right to decide who is a monster little meister." he growled at her and moved to slice her stomach with the knife. He had felt the pull of souls in her attack. The want to feast on them. Though whether they were the attack themselves Hades wasn't sure. But still that pull had been there so if not the assault than it had to be from her directly.

Era's spirit bomb had a larger area of affect than she had anticipated, the walls crumbled around them, luckily the one wall that was destroyed was only a partition wall and not someone's home. Sort of like a brick fence. She'd mostly missed, but the crumbling debris that fell down gave Era a bit more confidence than she'd had only a second before seeing the disgusting creature fell to the rubble. Except, when the dust cleared, it was still standing. Era's mouth gaped open slightly in disbelief, her arms outstretched in a 'throwing' motion. She hadn't even hurt it. Most of her well gone and it didn't even have a scratch.

Worst still was the angry man that headed towards her and had closed the distance quicker than Era had recognized his coming. She could feel the heavy weight of him pressing down on her, it felt as if she were suffocating. She was pelted with rocks and could already feel the welts growing and the sting beneath her clothes, it forced her backwards onto her back and Era scrambled to gain any footing. It was too late, he'd already entrapped her. Era breathed heavily but she grit her teeth bravely and looked into the eyes of the monster before her, "I'm a person with morals that's what gives me the right. You let that thing kill a child."

Era winced under the glimmer of the blade but she would not be completely helpless. With one more spiritual push she gathered her wits and concentrated. Though already well-exhausted she still managed to effectively cause a kinetic burst away from her with the hopes of pushing the dangerous man away and clambering to her feet.

Morals. Things that humans hid behind because they were too scared to face their own truths. He smirked down at her and opened his mouth to speak when he felt that draw of power again. The girl still had some juice in her. That he found actually rather impressive. Quickly he tried to focus his own well knowing that it was running out quickly. He would have to take more lives than normal tonight. Oh Octavia wouldn't like that. Least he didn't much care what his family thought. He only cared about what the Goddess he followed thought and she wanted souls.

Throwing up his arms he focused the power on his chest and face to keep the vitals protected from the blast. The force of the energy ripped at his clothes and flesh and he actually smiled. A true smile that lit up his eyes just enough as he lowered his arms after t he blast was done. Hades had been forced back a good six feet but he didn't care. Oh this one was a special one. Maybe he could convert her to his side. Looking at Bael he knew that wouldn't be possible. Oh well. She would make a fun toy for him to play with then. Maybe he would take her soul sometime.

"Is your tantrum finished?" he asked her the smile vanishing from his face and his voice serious. Bael started to walk for the girl and he held up a hand motioning the creature to stop. The Stranger instantly stopped and swayed back and forth his face focused on the girl. Though as he had no eyes one had to wonder if he actually saw her. Maybe it was by scent. Even Hades didn't know everything about his construct. "Now then." he turned his eyes to the girl and they still held the smile that his face no longer held. "What to do with you now." his arms were bleeding, he could feel it. Oh yeah. She made him bleed. He actually enjoyed that.

Era through the blast and just a mere number of moments to scramble to her feet and poise for a physical brawl before he was edging towards her again, slowly, tauntingly. Magically, Era was mostly spent, what little reserve left she had would be held until her well could siphon or she managed across a full-fledged dead one to absorb—if she lived she might have to go trolling through a graveyard or hospital. As it was in that moment, her natural ability to siphon souls reached out and tugged on the horrific man's before her. Whatever black soul remained in side of him. It wasn't a conscious thing Era could control, her siphoning, it was something unique to her as far as she'd met in meisters and in many cases she'd never known it was happening. It was a self-preservation technique her body just… did.

She pulled herself up defensively and protected her face with balled fists, her legs were widespread enough for balance and possibly a good punch to the monster's face as it seemed to focus in on her—stopped only by its just-as-horrendous-master. "Come closer and I'll show you tantrum." She yelled defiantly at him, she wouldn't be taken down as a helpless girl. While she didn't have much magic left, she still had fists. And she'd go down swinging. "Can't do shit, that's wha." She growled, "There's people walkin' these streets, people like me and they'll be along any sec." She cackled, hoping beyond all hope that Toxic Daddy-O was somewhere in the vicinity and had heard her screams. Otherwise, her bluff… was just that.

She had fire. Hades could admit to that. But that didn't mean that he wanted to continue dealing with her. No actually he was growing quite bored and he now had to refill completely on souls. He was running dangerously low and didn't care for that. When she spoke of others he mentally cursed. He didn't have the strength to handle others. Turning his attention to Bael he tilted his head to the side. The creature had to be feeling weak and without him being able to call forth the help of the earth he wouldn't be able to keep the creature safe and he really didn't want to have to conjure another one.

Turning his attention back to the girl he laid his hands down by his sides as Bael walked over to him and stood close to its master's shoulder. "I don't wish to have others interfere. I will continue my hunting elsewhere this evening." he said and turned to go. Giving her his back. It was just a sign that he didn't see her as a threat. She had to be running low on reserves too he was betting. Or if she wasn't she might actually manage something that impressed him. Granted he had to admit to himself that her attack impressed him too.

Looking over his shoulder he gave her a small emotionless smile. "Perhaps we will run into each other again." he said and walked down the alley. There was a chance she would stop him. Maybe attack him from behind. Hades knew he would do that if she was the one that had turned her back.

She wasn't going to die? Era couldn't believe what she was seeing, the ugly beast thing had all of her attention and she hadn't noticed the subtle signal the meister had given it to back the fuck off. Era stared at it as it walked away, called back by his master, Era remained poised and ready. Her muscles already ached from being positioned in a spring motion for so long, but it wouldn't have surprised her if the devil himself tried for a surprise attack.

Then he spoke. Era grimaced, he was backing away. Part of her wanted to egg him on, bluff him further, make him afraid of her just as he had made her afraid of him. But she knew she couldn't back up even the smallest of bluffs as spent as she was, and as it was now she was going to sleep for a week. Era would wait until the man was out of sight before she lowered her defenses, but to his retreating back she screamed emotionally, " You know there are other ways to fill your well. You don't have to kill people… or at least don't kill kids. They are already got a hard enough time around here…" Era knew it'd fall on deaf ears, anyone who had the balls to kill a kid knew exactly what they were doing. Knew what they wanted from them.

Era knew she'd cry over Cadence that night, and maybe for the rest of the month. Cadence had had such a beautiful soul, he was going to grow up and be someone, he had ambition and he hadn't yet fallen into the trap of all Black Dragon kids… stealing to eat. Era had made sure of that, even if pickings had been slim. But the truth of the matter of it was: who was Era even going to tell about the loss? BD wouldn't care, one less mouth to try and feed, and he'd had no parents…

She sighed, and watched through bleary tear-filled eyes as the devil himself with his monster in tow walked down the street nonchalantly, and disappeared.
