AN: I had this idea years ago, then came across the show and thought "Oh. Well, that was a waste of time." Then I remembered my good friend Fanfiction, and all was well. The original idea has been modified to fit the show. Enjoy, ^.^
The Seeker Inside.
Prologue. (Beginning to Episode 1, Season 1)
An ancient ritual, a chant as old as the earth itself, floats up the stairs of the underground chamber. Down many stairs the group walks, chanting on and on. Reaching the bottom of the cave, they take their positions. A trio of men, all with flowing robes and beards, stand in a triangle, hands raised as if in prayer. They radiate a mighty power, and it shows in the purple light that encompasses them. In the centre, a pendant hovers, a red jewel circled by a ring of gold. The cries of a fearsome beast can be heard, but the men carry on without flinching. They must complete the ceremony, else the world be consumed. As the incantation reaches its climax, a pure beam of sunlight shoots down from a hole in the roof. Upon touching the suspended amulet, the light changes, becoming red and shaped like the monstrous creature the men could hear before. It could easily be likened to a dragon. The light-being's roars grew louder, and it fights against its confinement in the pendant. Sweat brakes out on its captor's faces as they struggle to restrain it. The leader's voice rings out, powerful with age and experience, full of command.
"The beast must be imprisoned, no matter the consequences! Think of the innocents, and draw strength from their love!" With a final cry of anger and despair, the creature withdraws into its prison, and the amulet descends gracefully to the ground. The leader picks up the tablet it rests upon, unwilling to touch the beast's resting place. His followers pull up a stone in the floor beneath it, revealing a circular hole, a mirror to the one in the ceiling above it. The bearer of the tablet lowers his burden into the dark opening, and helps the others to cover it. At last, their work complete, the trio relax, panting with exhaustion, though it seems fate is not finished with them yet.
The leader drops to the cold, rocky ground, his eyes full of joy at what he had achieved, but none the less, empty of life.
The world was safe, but for how long?
