Beneath the Floating Island #13: Angel Island (Morning)
There was a lone figure standing below what appeared to be a huge mass of land, enough to form a small continent, suspended in the air. Upon it's surface was a thriving, almost perfectly tranquil city built around a lush tropical forest along with gushing waterfalls and shallow lakes. The figure in question was clothed in a hybrid of modern and classic attire. A vibrant red jacket with twin tails hanging off of the ends of its back and a long sleeved black shirt being worn underneath making up the Modern half. The complimenting Classic parts were his choice of pants and shoes. Those being black umanori hakama and, quite evidently worn, jet skate shoes respectively. He spoke out loud to himself.
"My name is Shadow. Shadow the Bloodedge." Shadow is a jet black and crimson red colored hedgehog with heterochromic eyes, the left being red and the right being green, his physical appearance being perfectly fitting to his outfit of choice. "I am eteranlly damned by my own power as the Ultimate Life Form. I am not of a biological origin. After escaping the confines of the hellhole known as the 'ARK Sector', I learned of the murder of someone very close to me. The ones who had performed this crime were none other than the world's leading government G.U.N. and in response, I will do to them what they did to her in spades."
Shadow tightly gripped the handle of his weapon, a black and purple sword crafted unlike any other. It was a zweihander with sharp spikes protruding from either end in a zigzag pattern until it reached the slightly curved and equally sharp tip. As if in response to this, the golden rings around the wrists of his white gloves as well as the green gem embedded into the back of his jacket briefly glowed in unison.
"I have a promise to keep. One will to fulfill before I succumb to the unholy power that eats away at my very being everyday. I promised her...REVENGE!"
Floating Island #13: Angel Island - Location #0: Hidden Palace
Rumored to have been constructed by an extinct race of animals, Shadow took a bold step into an area unknown to most.
Within the depths of this temple, it normally housed the power source of all of G.U.N., a shard of an all unlimited energy source of mysterious origin known as the Master Emerald. Normally the Chaos Emerald on Shadow's back, one of seven more powerful gems though still weak in comparison to the Master predecessor, would've silently resonated in response to his being there. But strangely...
"The Chaos...isn't radiating?" The warming sensation of energy that the renegade hedgehog had become accustomed to didn't activate on it's own. Instead, a feeling of unease washed over him. "Something's...not right." As he ventured deeper into the Hidden Palace Zone, he came across a chamber that would normally have housed the shard he was looking for. The shard he seeked to utterly destroy. However...
"It's gone! Where did it go!" His brain couldn't fathom any plausable explanation. After all, Angel Island would normally plummet into the hazardous ground below contaminated by the remains of Dark Gaia if the power source wasn't placed into it's altar socket keeping it afloat. Before he could contemplate more on this strange turn of events, something snapped him out of his thoughts and brought him to full alertness. "Yo' Shadow! Long time no see!"
"Oh son of a..." Not really wanting to deal with a certain someone he was very..."acquaintanced" with, he relunctantly turned around to face his greatest rival and enemy. A major serving under the direct command of G.U.N., Sonic-Kisaragi. A widely respected hero, Sonic-Kisaragi is a blue hedgehog dressed in a skin-tight leather black full body suit with a white low cut irotomesode kimono top, the insignia of his division (a symbol consisting of a flame red, ice blue and lightning yellow circle coming together) present upon the chest area. Over that is a decorated high collared azure blue thin coat with sleeves torn off. Lastly, his footwear of choice were his trademark white-strapped, golden buckled hyper friction resistant red sneakers.
Mockingly, he greeted him with his own interpertation of Sonic's infamously coined greeting: "Hey you blue bastard! Long time no see to you too!" Then putting on a more serious tone he put up a defensive position. "You're here to get in my way aren't you?"
"You know me so well! Then again I'd expect this from my 'brother'." The amount of emphasis that Shadow's look-a-like put on the word caused him to reflexively reach for his sword titled "Red Dragon Arondight." Growling menacingly, he spoke. "Don't you ever..." Next he jumped high into the air then swung his weapon down at his now confirmed opponent. "CALL ME THAT AGAIN!" Sonic drew forth his own weapon, a light bronze sword of the nodachi style called Caliburn, in response. They clashed blades once, twice, three times before engaging in a deadlock. Neither hedgehog refusing to back down until abruptly breaking apart at the same time.
They dashed around each other, cautiously waiting for the other to make a move and before they knew it they stood back-to-back. A calm exchanging of words was made even though they clearly had the intent to put the other down. "Seriously Shadow. I didn't think I'd see you again." spoke a solemn sounding Sonic. "Indeed. It's time for our tiebreaker round to begin. " spoke the black counterpart in response. A few more seconds of silence passed before it was broken by a lightning fast swing of Caliburn, the arc of his swing aimed for the opponent's torso too fast for the normal eye to see. Flaring up the rockets in his jet shoes, Shadow skated away and turned around on a dime, still lightly hovering above the ground. Sonic grinned and waved his hand in a beckoning, taunting fashion. "Come at me bro!"
"Hmph. CHAOS SPIKE!" Bringing his sword down into the ground, Shadow began channeling his Chaos Energy into it then swung it back up, bringing with it a wave of raw Chaos that threatened to wash over Sonic. However, instead of dodging, he jumped and homed in towards it, performing a spining move that created a blue hourglass shaped tornado around the wave in it's wake. Shadow immediately motioned to do the same in a reverse spinning way that turned the resulting black hourglass on it's side, the friction from the two hedgehog creating an electrical impulse field within the black one's initial attack eventually making it explode and spreading the two apart again. It was almost as if they had practiced the move multiple times.
Skidding into a recovery roll along the ground, the hero spoke. "Atomic Strike." began a smirking Sonic. "Remember? Back when were the best of friends? Back before..." he stood up straight. "You-know-who came along." With speed he never knew he had, Shadow dashed and thrust his foot at Sonic catching him square in the chest before raising his rather large two-handed zweihander type weapon with one hand up and over his shoulder. "Chaos..." His rocket jets flared up full blast then he charged forward, dangerously swinging the sword down in an attempt to slice his cocky opponent in two. Sonic however brought up his Caliburn in retaliation via a circular slash.
The follow-up a quick strike forward, a horizontal slash aimed for Shadow's chest. One would assume that given the awkward position he was left in, he'd taste the full front of the attack but the anti-hero spun around on his heel in a counter-clockwise direction before finishing the outcry of his attack. "PUNISHMENT!" A diagonal swipe launched even more raw Chaos in the form of an erupting geyser with such force that, were it used against any normal foe, it would crush them upon impact. Sonic-Kisaragi, being far from any normal foe held off the attack with Caliburn and the usage of his own element of wind that allowed him to cut it apart in all directions away from him. "Man, that was close." Shadow merely scoffed and gripped the hilt of his sword even tighter, turning his knuckles(under the gloves) white while glaring his opponent down, with both red and green eyes burning furiously with anger. "But this'll be closer!"
After a quickdraw maneouver, too fast even for Shadow to track therefore catching him off guard, the famous blue blur began rapidly and wildly striking the infamous blood-thirsty beast from all directions leaving him helpless, ironically tattered from head to toe in shallow cuts and, upon his realization that he had been hit in the first place, forced him to fall. "Dammit..." he cursed upon hitting the ground with eyes shut. "This'll finish the job Shadow ol' pal, ol' buddy of mine!" Looking down on him for a final time, he gathered his power and forced the wind to start spinning around under his feet. "Sonic Wind!" Announced Sonic before it howled menacingly and entrapped itself under Shadow's unmoving form, threatening to tear him apart. Hearing this snapped him awake then prompted him to roll forward much to Sonic's surprise. "DIVIDING THE DRAGON!"
Safely out of range and spiraling up, Shadow caught Sonic with his blade in an uppercut, tearing into his look-a-like and miraculously draining the life energy out of his foe through manipulation of a more poisonous Chaos that flowed through his veins in order to heal his own wounds. In doing said energy thievery, it sprung them both sky-high and into the ceiling in which the black blur quickly yanked out his sword upon impact then delivered with a wicked spin an actual proper uppercut punch before reverse spinning into a straight that hit its intended target square in the face. The strength behind it bounced the opposing hedgehog off of a pillar and into a sideways heel smash to the back of the head courtesy of an axe kick. To finish the combo, Shadow the Bloodedge raised his trusty Red Dragon Arondight above his head and with an utterly mighty swing, brought the flat of the sword crashing down upon the back of Sonic-Kisaragi, the full force of gravity sending them both down at an alarming rate into the empty altar which exploded upon colliding with it.
Unable to rise back up to the challenge, Sonic simply laid down on the ground before giving a thumbs up through slightly torn gloves revealing his hand to be of a peach color, the same as his unclothed arms and muzzle. Looking up at Shadow with a weak grin he spoke his final words in a joking manner before passing out. "You got me...2 to 1..." He coughed out some blood that dripped down his chin before laughing.
"Welcome to the next level."
