The Return of Jedah
Disclaimer: Darkstalkers is property of Capcom
On Earth there are countless things happening, but the people who inhabit it were not aware of the things that were happening in another world, in this other world the fate of both the Human world and the other world were put on the line, twice. This other world was the demon realm where many demons lived and were ruled by three High Nobles, this demon realm name was Makai, as for the things that had put the fate of humanity and the Makai on the line, the first was when an entity from space from the planet Hellstorm, who is known as Pyron, had wanted to take Earth but only for the sole purpose on taking Makai for himself but was defeated by one of the inhabitants of Makai, Morrigan Aensland a succubus, and a descendent of one of the three High Nobles, Belial who had passed away.
The other event was when a thought to be dead noble of Makai had come back from his 100 years sleep tried to recreate the two worlds into a new dimension, Majigen, his name was Jedah Dohma.
Jedah had been tricked into absorbing the energy of the gate of Makai by his confidant, Ozomu who was an expert on deceiving others, as a result he had so much energy that he had been thought to be dead, and as a result Ozomu had taken over the Dohma Castle and became its new ruler, but a century later Jedah had woken and was angered of what has happened in Makai over his 100 years sleep, nobles fighting each other and blood being spilled. Later he had confronted his traitorous confidant and tells him, "Ozomu…I am sorry, but please lend me your powers. Your soul would become the foundation of Majigen and will help the future of Makai." With his abilities to take souls he took his soul and added it to himself to create his new world. Jedah took souls that he thought were worthy for the creation of Majigen and even got help from a source of energy that grew to have its own will, it was the miniature succubus Lilith, who was half the energy that was given to Morrigan at an early age when the struggle for power for the three High Nobles had happened, but was too much for the young Aensland and Belial sealed half of the energy until Morrigan was old enough to control her powers, but Belial had passed away before he could, and when the two had combined to give Morrigan a lot of power which helped her defeat Jedah.
Just like that Jedah was defeated and had been destroyed…or so they thought. Jedah was no fool he had a plan ready in case he was defeated before he finished his plan, he had everything planned out, but that plan was also ruined by the succubus, who only wanted to defeat Jedah just to make sure no one ruined her "fun" when she would go to the human world, Jedah had prepared a body for him to go to in case he was defeated but Morrigan destroyed the other body and everything he did to for Majigen, not because she didn't want him to cause the same problem again, but only to mess with him before he disappeared into nothing. In fact this was all happening right now and the humans were unaware of how close they were to destruction had it not been for Morrigan's intervention.
"Ha ha ha," the succubus Morrigan was laughing at a very weak Jedah who was crawling to his new body that looked exactly like him, "Oh Jedah, you and your crazy plans, hahaha, to think all of these plan of yours were destroyed by me and Lilith, well sorry, but I am afraid I cannot let you do this because I will be bored out of my mind if you made this new world." She continued to look at him, he was limping towards the new body slowly reaching for it, "If this world would have been anything like you, than I rather not stay here anymore than I should be." She then started to make some energy in her two hands.
As Jedah prepared to be put into the new body, energy was shot from somewhere and hit Jedah's replacement body, making it turn into nothing, Jedah's eyes widened as he saw the body disappear before his very eyes, and he slowly clenched his fist and screamed at the would have been sky of Majigen, then he saw Morrigan who was giggling at his "tantrum", "DAMN, DAMN YOU AENSLAND," Jedah yelled at Morrigan with so much rage he only say those few things, his anger would have been noticed by every living thing on both Makai and on the human world, were he not trapped at the disappearing world of Majigen.
"Is that all you can say to me," Morrigan asked Jedah, as his rage was so much he could only say very little. "I can't have you doing something like this again anyway so I will gladly just get rid of your plans right now, just to see your reaction for laughs," she continued to mock him until she heard Lilith's voice.
'Morrigan I'm sorry if I bothered you, but we need to go before Jedah's weird world is destroyed' as soon as Lilith finished Morrigan saw that every other darkstalker was gone, and Jedah's dimension was disappearing into nothing.
"Hm, you're right Lilith, oh well we had our fun, time to go I guess." As soon as Morrigan had finished her sentence she saw a portal that was slowly disappearing but would be enough to take her to Makai she slowly approached it and started to go enter it, but she paused and made a quick glance to Jedah who was slowly crawling and reaching out to the portal as well, she then giggled at Jedah's feeble attempts, and blew a kiss towards his direction before going through the portal.
Saying Jedah is angry was an understatement, he was beyond angry, his eyes were bloodshot red and he was slowly bleeding to death, that's right bleeding to death, that's how serious his injuries are. Jedah quickly shook his head to calm himself, but only managed to calm himself a bit, and had to figure out a way to live, even if he couldn't restore Majigen and would never be able to do so again, he quickly decide that if he wanted to live, even if he would never to be able to create a new world, he had to find a body in Makai or in the human world, so he put his hands on his chest and opened it up to see his soul coming out of his body, he turned into his soul and left his old body behind.
He knew that the body he could get, he would get his powers once he finds a body, however he wanted one that was like the one that he had created, but now he had no choice, he needs to find a body that is willing to let him have his soul and his powers, even though he will not be able to control the body, he will still be able to speak towards them in their mind, like Lilith does with Morrigan, he will find someone who is willing to listen and allow him to merge their souls into one body, after all he won't simply choose any person or demon he sees. Jedah's soul quickly went to the portal and was taking his chance on where it would take him, after all he had nothing to lose, so now he went through the portal and waited and waited for who knows how long, then he found himself into the human world with the portal now gone, and now he has started his search for a willing body, after all he has all the time in the world.
(Time Skip 1 year later with a Human)
The summer was approaching and many people in Texas could tell just by how the temperature was changing, in Dallas a 20 year old male with brown hair, that seemed like it had a normal hairstyle, brown eyes with glasses, had black jeans, black combat boots, a gray shirt, and strangely enough a black sweater even though it was summer, he had been walking from his workplace to his friend's home, which really did not bother his friend at all since he was only there until he got his own place to live in and only was there for two weeks, with only a few clothes he had brought with him.
He was currently in the living room of his friend's house looking for someone, "Leo, what are you looking for, is everything okay?" A woman asked, she had dark brown hair that went to shoulder length, had orange eyes, was wearing a green apron in front of black vest with a blue shirt, and some blue jeans.
"Huh? Oh yeah I was looking for you or Ralph," the person known as Leo answered then started looking around again "where is he anyway?"
"Oh, you know Ralph, once he gets his mind on fixing something, he immediately goes to do it himself," Leo then sweat dropped when she told him that.
"Heh, so what did Ralph break this time?" Leo asked even though he knew the answer by now.
"The wall in our room," yep another broken wall, Leo knew she was going say that.
*sigh* "Again? Honestly Ralph is going to destroy every wall here if he keeps getting angry that easily just because his teams don't win."
The woman giggled at that, "I know it's that he takes them too seriously when they show." Leo nodded at that.
"So why were you looking for us Leo?" Leo then quickly remembered why he was there.
"Oh right that," Leo then took out a wallet and got some money out, "I was looking for one of you so I could pay you two for helping and letting me stay here."
"Leo really you don't have to," she started to protest but Leo would not have any of that.
"No, it's the least I can do for the two of you since you guys really help me."
"Are you sure? I mean, we honestly don't need to get paid, since we really owe you for helping us with this house." She smiled at that, remembering how Leo helped them on their time of need, and they were really glad to pay back the favor by letting him sleep in a guest room.
"Clara please, I was happy to help, but I still honestly think you should take this money, I feel like I should still try to do something while I'm here." Clara smiled at Leo's generosity because, Leo has done a lot for her and Ralph, even their five year old daughter.
"Leo honestly, you actually do a lot here," Clara then started to think of the entire things Leo helped them while he was there for a year, "you help me with house work, you helped Ralph keep his cool, you helped in repairing any walls he breaks, you help with taking care of Nina, and so many other things."
Leo was going to talk but then he heard another voice, "Clara is right Leo, you've done enough to help us, in fact letting you sleep here free of charge is more than enough." Ralph appeared, he has black hair teal eyes, had a red aeropostale shirt and khaki pants, he then approached and was taking his wife's side at this. "Honestly Leo you don't have to pay us anything back."
Leo chuckled at the two, "Guys come on, both of you know that I will not stop until you take it." Leo then handed them the money, both Ralph and Clara sighed as they know Leo is right he wouldn't drop it until they take him on his generosity.
"Fine fine you win," Ralph said, as he took the money and gave half of it to Clara.
After that a few seconds later Leo felt something hold on to his leg, he looked down and couldn't help but smile, he saw Nina hugging his leg and both Clara and Ralph laughed as they saw their little girl holding on to Leo's leg.
"Uncle Leo!" Nina called when she saw her favorite uncle smiling at her, even though they aren't blood related.
"Hello, Nina why aren't you in bed?" Leo asked the young girl.
Nina was in her Felicia pajamas that Leo got her three months ago and has become her favorite ever since, Leo then saw she was crying and holding to her stuffed cat.
"U-Uncle Leo," Nina said between sobs, then Leo crouched down to Nina's height to hear what she was going to say.
"What's wrong had bad dream?" Leo asked her and Nina nodded, "What was it about?"
She couldn't say as she was still sobbing then Clara hugged Nina and started to calm her down, "Shh shh shh, it's alright were here," after a few minutes Nina slowly stopped crying, but she was still shaking and holding on to Leo's leg.
Then finally she calmed down.
"Alright, so what was the bad dream about honey?" Ralph was still standing but was concerned for his little girl.
"T- there was a-a scary light in it and it-it…it sounded really scary…" Nina told them but was starting to form tears in her eyes.
"Don't cry, don't cry, were here don't worry," Leo was trying to reassure her, "now tell me what else was there?"
Nina cleaned her eyes the told them, "It-it was talking to you and-and you had to-to listen to it because you would…you would…" Nina clearly didn't want to say what happened next.
"I would what?" Leo said concerned for his niece.
"You had to listen to it so you didn't have to…to… die." This shocked everyone, but this shocked Ralph and Clara more and Leo knew why, since the brother of Ralph had been killed when he was robbed in his own home, and he was one of Nina's favorite Uncle's.
"Nina it's okay nothing like that happened to me," Leo said as both Ralph and Clara hugged their daughter, "Listen why don't you go ahead and sleep with your parent's tonight, so you sleep peacefully."
Nina shook her head "Uncle Leo can I sleep with you tonight I don't want the scary light to talk to you."
Leo made a small smile and told her, "If it's okay with your parents, then it is okay with me."
Nina then looked at her parents and they both nodded, "Yay! Now the red light won't talk to you." She then went to Leo's room and then started to cover herself with Leo's blanket.
"Heh well that was shocking but at least she won't have any more nightmares about that…I hope." Leo said still worried about her,
"Yes, it is never easy to forget family members I just hope she gets better." Clara said as she was worried, why wouldn't she be her daughter had a nightmare where her uncle died.
"Well we might as well get to bed good night Leo." Ralph said as he and Clara headed back to their room.
"Good night you two." Leo responded back as he headed back to his room to see Nina sound asleep with a smile on her face. Leo could not help but smile as well but felt guilty about her dream, after all what Nina mentioned in her dream had actually did happen to Leo, the red Light, him talking to it, him being close to death, and now he feels guilty that it had to be Nina who saw what happened.
'Why so angry Leo,' a voice had spoken to Leo, making him angry.
'Jedah you know why,' Leo's yelled back in his thoughts, 'she is starting to remember what happened when I first meet you.'
'Hm, don't worry she woke up before she saw you kill those pathetic humans, she won't have to see it anymore now that part is over.' Jedah responded back, as their talk was happening, Leo's shadow was transforming into the silhouette of Jedah, and Leo's features changed, his brown hair started showing blonde highlights, his skin started turning gray, his eyes turned from brown to red, and scythe like wings grew from his back, all in the blink of an eye. Leo looked exactly like Jedah except he did not have the same clothes and did not have the headdress Jedah would have worn.
*sigh* 'Jedah I told you I do not want her to see that memory, but…at least it is over now.'
'Hm, do not worry three more days and we will head to Makai, which will at least give you enough time to say goodbye, since your friend already knows and his wife as well, so all that is left is the child.'
'Yeah…you're right…' Leo said as he saw how peacefully his niece is sleeping and how guilty he will feel when he tells her he is moving, not to a new house that Ralph and Clara thought, but to Jedah's old home and castle, "but make it in a week, I do not want her to be angry at me.'
'Very well, change back before the child wakes, we will collect souls another time then.' Jedah may have been a demon, but he understands when it came with Leo's family, after all he Jedah owed him that much.
'Well whatever, I might as well sleep now' as soon as he said that his features quickly became normal, as if he was just an allusion, he then went to his bed, removing his sweater and boots, keeping his shirt and pants, he then looked at his niece one more time before sighing and closing his eyes to finally for once in night.
If you want to know when Jedah fused with Leo then let me tell you now, it was about 6 months ago, when it all happened and Leo became the new Heir to Jedah's throne.
(Six months ago)
It was a Saturday and one of those days were you would expect nothing would go wrong, Leo was with Nina in a peaceful park, it was one of those that were big and had a lot of peaceful areas, Nina liked to go outside a lot, especially in parks she would always bother her parents to take her to one, "Mommy, can you and Daddy take me to a park today when you two get home?"
"I'm sorry honey, but we won't be able to, I have to help at the hospital longer than I thought, and your Dad is also going to stay late." Clara told her, and Nina's expression quickly changed from happy to disappointment until they heard a voice call out.
"Hey, guys I'm home," as soon as they heard that, Nina's expression went back to happy, since she knew immediately who it was.
"Uncle Leo!" she yelled out and quickly hugged her favorite Uncle.
"Well your home early, what happened" Clara told him, happy to see her daughter's mood change.
"Oh, I was able to finish work early at the factory today, so I came home to rest a bit." Leo answered
"Oh well that's good to know, by the way me and Ralph are going to stay longer at work than we intended, so would you mind taking care of Nina while were gone?"
"Not at all, I will take care of her, don't worry," as soon as he said that Nina quickly had an idea.
"Mommy, mommy, what if Uncle Leo takes me to a park!" she said looking at Leo and her mom.
"Sure, if Leo is okay with that." Clara told her and Nina quickly looked at Leo.
"Heh, sure Nina I will," Leo told her and she quickly hugged her Uncle.
"No prob, now get your things ready so we can go."
"Okay!" After that Nina went into her room.
"Thanks for helping Leo, I guess we owe you another favor," Leo chuckled at Clara's offer.
"No its okay she's going to run out of energy if we go anyway, so it isn't a big deal."
"Well just be careful, alright?" Clara said, worried about her husband's best friend, and worried about Nina mostly
"Don't worry I will make sure she is safe. She won't have to experience that again," Leo reassured her, because Nina did not take it well when her other favorite Uncle died.
"I'm ready!" Nina shouted out, now carrying a backpack with her.
"Heh, well let's get going then, see you later Clara," Leo got the extra keys for the extra car Ralph and Clara had.
"Be safe you two!" Clara shouted out.
"We will," Leo responded back.
So after 30 minutes they were there in the park looking at the big ponds and scenery Nina was boosting with energy as they went through. After about 45 minutes of chasing Nina around without stooping Leo got tired and went to drink some water and told Nina to stay near the pond. When he did Leo didn't notice a man cover Nina's mouth and take her further in to the park. As soon as Leo had come back he immediately noticed Nina was gone, and no one was near the area, Leo quickly panicked as he saw Nina's backpack on the ground and he yelled.
"Nina! Nina where are you!" No response came, until Leo heard someone call his name.
"UNCLE LEO HELP!" Nina voice could be clearly heard in the forest like part of the park.
"Damn!" Leo quickly ran to the direction were he heard Nina scream Leo.
A few minutes ago…
A small red light was slowly going through the forest, scaring every creature that saw it, if anyone was near it you could sense its anger from a mile away, why wouldn't it be angry? Every time he tried to look for someone worthy he was given horrible results, when he did find someone worthy they would run away from him or use his powers for the wrong reasons and would never help him. Now Jedah was floating through the forest to find someone worthy, he didn't easily trust anyone since the involvement with Ozomu and Lilith betraying him by helping Morrigan.
"Grr, at this rate I will not find anyone suitable to help me." The light spoke in Jedah's voice clearly frustrated, "These humans seem trustworthy at first but then they start thinking of ways that don't benefit for either them or me, or they would just run away from the mere sight of me…fweh I never should have had high hopes for this pathetic world…but I doubt I would have had a better chance in Makai…hm this troublesome…" After a few moments he heard a scream.
"UNCLE LEO HELP!"
If Jedah had a body he would have had his eyes widen as he heard a little girls voice, then he felt another presence in the area and saw someone pass him without noticing him, it was a man heading to the direction of the voice.
"Hm…I wonder if it is worth it to even try to see if that one is trustworthy…" Jedah would have normally ignored him if he had his body back, but he didn't, "Fweh… guess it wouldn't hurt, after all I have faced many disappointments anyway so this one won't be any different anyway." So Jedah carefully followed the man as he was running and after a few moments Jedah saw the man stop in front of three men, two were about the same height and one was at least an inch taller than the other two. Jedah quietly hid himself and watched the events unfold.
Leo was panting trying to caught up to were Nina was and finally found her except she was not alone, Nina was being hold down by two men, trying to keep her from yelling and moving, and Leo's anger rose to great heights at the sight before him and yelled, "Let her go you bastards!"
The two men were laughing at the panting Leo and the third men talked to him, "Oh, so you're this girl's uncle huh, HA, and we worried for nothing," at this all those three men laughed at Leo while the two were still holding Nina down.
"I . ." Leo began clutching his hands into a fist.
"Hah, try to stop us dumbass!" The taller man pulled out a gun, what gun it was Leo didn't care, he only cared about getting Nina out of the hands of the two kidnappers. Leo took a step forward and the man shot him in the abdomen, Leo fell down on his knees holding where his wound was, as Nina saw this she immediately shed tears, since she knew the men were going to kill her uncle, like her previous uncle died. "Heh, both of you take the girl quickly before anyone sees you I'll handle this idiot," at that the two men went to another direction of the forest and left quickly with Nina.
Leo tried to get up but was immediately shot at his right leg two times, Leo fell down easily and was using his hands to support himself, he was shot gain in his stomach three times, Leo laid on his back covering his stomach, and Leo saw the man raise his gun where his heart was, Leo's eyes widened as he heard the gun fire, and next thing he saw was the man following the others and leaving him to die there, Leo stretched an arm out in the direction the three men went, and his vision was blurring as he felt he eye close from the pain, but before he did he saw a small red orb of light heading towards him, Leo could have sworn the light was using a hand to reach to him so Leo used the fleeing bit of his energy to reach out to the light, as if asking it for help.
Jedah saw the man telling the others to let the girl, who is apparently his niece, go, he saw the two men flee with the girl as the taller one shot the uncle of the girl, and he was disgusted by what he saw, "Humans can be obviously be far worse than demons, when things such as this happen," he saw how the man was stretching a hand to the direction of where the tall one and the other two left, he knew that this man could be trustworthy and if he plays it out well he will have a new body to finally stop searching one, at this idea Jedah could have laughed if he still had his body, but that is going to change very soon, Jedah finally moved to the dying man seeing his eyes close a bit before he finally noticed Jedah's presence, the man could see him clearly and was reaching out to him for help which Jedah gladly helped with.
As soon as Leo touched the red light, he was surrounded by a dark wave of energy that took over him.
"…where…where am I…" Leo quickly opened his eyes and saw that he was completely nowhere, there were no trees from the park, no sun, no color, nothing, absolutely nothing but just a white color everywhere, "W-what the?"
"Behind you," Leo heard voice and quickly turned around, and he fell surprised of the new person who surprised him. The man was wearing a black coat, black pants, and black boots, but Leo did not notice his clothes, he noticed how the man's skin was a complete gray and had wings on his back that look like scythes, and he was floating.
"Who-who the heck are you?" Leo asked the pale skinned man as he stood up.
"I should be asking you that, but I will tell you anyway, my name is Jedah Dohma, one of the three High Nobles of Makai." Jedah answered Leo, who is still shocked.
"Well… my name is Leo Ross… good to meet you Jedah…I guess," Leo told him, and then asked him, "Where the heck are we anyway?"
"We are in your mind Leo," Jedah answered him truthfully, to see Leo's reaction.
"R-really then why…why is it so blank," Leo asked him again, which surprised Jedah as how this man could easily trust him.
"I am surprised you believed me easily human, I am also surprised on how you are not afraid of my appearance."
Leo chucked at that, "Well I don't judge others by appearance mister Dohma, also I know that you were probably that light that approached me before… oh no, no no no, Nina!" Leo quickly remembered the events, the two men trying to hold his niece, him threatening them to let her go, and the man shooting him, and finally the red light that was approaching him when he was close to death. "Nina… I'm sorry" Leo muttered as tears started falling from his eyes.
"Relax hu-Leo…you can still safe her," at that answer Leo looked at Jedah to see if he was serious, "Yes I am serious if that's what you are thinking."
"How, tell me how!" Leo told him, as he wanted to quickly save Nina.
"Simple, but let me tell you why," Jedah took a deep breath, to prepare himself for all of what he was going to tell Leo.
"The reason that your mind is how it is, is because you were dying so this is how it appears, now the reason I approached you was because of what I will also benefit from." Leo nodded for him to continue, "You see I need a new body, you saw me as that red light right, well the reason I was like that was because my original body was dying, and I quickly separated my soul from it so that I may still yet live." Leo was surprised at this but knew that Jedah would tell him more, "How and why I did that I will tell you later, but for now I will tell the events after that, you see as began searching for a body to help me live again, but I needed to find someone who was willing to let me join his or her soul with me, but I did not want to find someone who was willing to let me join their soul with mine easily, for you see many who would let me, where not willing to listen to me once I merged the souls they would have done things that only they were interested in, since I would not have any control on their actions, and those who have been able to gain my trust were afraid of my soul when I approached them, even though I cannot do anything to them as I was," Jedah took another deep breath and told Leo more, "After six whole months searching for someone that could help me, and I help them, I wondered into that forest and then I saw you," Jedah pointed at Leo who was understanding his predicament, "I saw you running to where the voice of that girl shouted, and I followed you and I saw the whole thing."
After Jedah finished Leo quickly questioned him, "Alright, so tell me what I have to do to let you help me rescue Nina!" Jedah was surprised again by Leo, on how he understood his predicament and was willing to help his niece.
"Hm, well first things first are you willing to listen to me and use my powers for helping me as well, now answer truthfully, I don't easily trust others especially humans."
"I am, even if I question them, I will still try to help on the things you need." Jedah smiled a little at Leo's answer.
"Very well, I will tell you the rest of my story and about the world I am from after we finish saving the child, I should have enough energy and power to help you, and as an added bonus for me you won't be affected by the sun like many of the citizens of Makai, when our souls combine you cannot turn back on this, ready?"
"I am, but if I am also allowed to make my own choices as well, when we…er…fuse our souls right?" Jedah nodded at Leo, and his request, glad that he finally found someone who he could help him. "Alright," Leo took a step back and said, "Let do this."
"Hm, very well then," Jedah said, as he took a step backed up as well, and started to release the same dark energy that had surrounded Leo earlier. The after all that energy surrounded Leo and everything else.
After a few moments when the shots were heard, the two men looked back to see the other man catching up to them, "Heh, took care of the guy huh?" One of the men asked.
"Hehe, yeah he won't bother us anytime soon," the man replied back, "Now hurry up and take this girl to the vehicle quickly before-" he was quickly cut off when he saw Leo approaching them, "What-what the hell!" the man was shocked that Leo had been following him as if the encounter never happened, Nina was still struggling but stopped for a moment to see her Uncle unscathed, "How the hell are you still alive! I shot you on the damn heart!"
Leo then grinned in a way that made all three men, and Nina shiver, then Leo told them, "Drop the girl and leave, this is your one and only chance." As Leo said that his voice sounded different it was calm like, but you could hear the amount of bloodlust that was said with every word, and you could tell that he meant it.
"Grr, die damn you!" the tall man of the group pulled out his gun and shot Leo multiple times in the chest until he ran out of bullets, and he smiled at that knowing no one could survive that many shots, but his smile quickly faded as he saw Leo was still standing as if nothing happened, and all his wounds were closing and the bullets were coming out of Leo's body, falling on the forest's ground.
When that was done Leo had crazy man's smile on his face and told the man, "Wrong answer," then out of his back, Leo took out a big scythe and swung it, hitting the air. Or so it looked like the tall man was cut in half from the waist and fell on the ground, squirting blood, then as if by instinct Leo put both his hands on his chest and opened it up, revealing his and Jedah's new soul, and as soon as he did that a red ball of light covered in the dead man's blood went over to Leo and was absorbed giving Leo more energy.
"OH GOD, LETS GET OUT OF HERE!" one of the men yelled as he saw their comrade die easily, and immediately let go of Nina's legs, and started to run, but then another noise was heard, Leo had swung the scythe again killing the one that started to run an the same had happened to him, with his soul leaving his body, and went to Leo so it can be absorbed. Then the last man already let go of Nina completely and started to run, but was quickly trapped in a crimson red orb that looked like it was made of blood, because it is made of blood. Then man then saw Leo approach him and quickly begged, "P-please let me go! I swear I will leave the girl alone, just please! Mercy!"
As soon as the man finished, Leo was laughing Jedah's signature psychotic laugh, "HAHAHAHAHAHA, oh how hilarious, I told you, there was only one chance and one alone, now DIE!"Leo then threw the scythe he was holding and it went through the last man's chest making a nice clean hole, and finally his soul was absorbed by Leo, and then he looked around for his niece. Nina was just staying where the men drooped her and was paralyzed by fear from the carnage, and she was picked up and was being hold like a baby was, "Shh,shh,shh, it's okay little one, the bad men are gone and your uncle is safe," Leo said trying to reassure his niece, in a different more calm like voice that showed worried and concerned. "Now, now, this just a bad dream, none of this happened," this had managed to calm Nina down as she looked at the man that was Leo but she didn't know it was him due to the changes he had, with his pale gray skin, his blond and brown hair, the change in his voice, and the wings on his back, so after a few minutes Nina had enough courage to say.
"Can-can I please wake up so I can see my uncle mister?" she told him and was awarded with a nice calming smile that Leo would always give her, which in turn made her smile.
"Of course now close your eyes and sleep, you will wake up soon," as he said that Nina nodded then closed her eyes, then Leo put his left arm on Nina's face and let out a bit of energy to put her asleep for a good twenty minutes. After that Leo went back to the car, his features changed back to normal, and he was talking to Jedah.
'Alright, now that we got time mind telling me the other things now since we got enough time anyway?' Leo asked Jedah who is deep in his thoughts.
'Of course but I have a simpler way, but it will give a headache but it will be simpler and shorter,'
'Well if it will make things simpler than I guess it won't be a problem, so bring it on'
'Heh, you're going to have splitting headache when this is over,' as soon as Jedah said that, Leo's brain felt like it was going to explode from his skull, as everything from Makai's past, Jedah's past, the benefits Leo gets from having fused souls with Jedah, such as a longer lifespan since Leo is 20 years old and can manage to live for thousands of years old now, he has the powers of an S rank demon, and will be able to have power as one of the three High Nobles in Makai, and the plans Jedah had tried to create with Majigen.
After that Leo spent the rest of the day with a splitting headache. Now that that was over Jedah told Leo what they were going to do to get more energy for them, Jedah told Leo that he has to take souls like he did with the three men, preferably at night, Leo was hesitant about this at first but Jedah told him he could take the souls of those who are guilty, even though it will take longer, Jedah supposed that having some souls is better than none, and it will also help him with his powers as well anyway, so after a few moments Leo agreed, and at nights took the souls of the guilty and leaving no trace of his existence behind in the process, he also managed to understand his powers even more.
So after a week Leo got himself ready, he was preparing to go to Makai, already telling Nina he was moving, much to her disappointment but Leo assured her he would visit when he could, and with Jedah's permission he could. So after saying his goodbyes and a whole week has passed, Leo was greeted by the loyal workers of the Dohma castle that had stayed behind since Jedah disappeared, and they were all aware of what Jedah had done since they knew their master always found a way and they were right.
'Wow Jedah you still have many loyal followers, I am glad that they know you well.' Leo said to Jedah as he was exploring the castle.
'Yes many of my followers were still loyal to me before I disappeared for a hundred years and I am glad that their wee more than I realized.' Jedah responded to him, Leo could tell that Jedah was surprised and actually…glad that he had still had many loyal to him despite of what he did, and believe me Jedah rarely shows that. 'Heh.' Leo could hear that Jedah was chuckling in his mind, and asked.
'What's so funny?'
'Oh nothing, I was just wondering on how you were going to react to the soul bees when you meet them.' Jedah answered him
'You mean those humanoid insects right? Eh I am sure it won't be a big deal.'
'Heh, we will see about that then.' Jedah told Leo as he again chuckled.
Now Leo was in Jedah's throne, helping the people as he could, thanks to Jedah and his previous knowledge as well as the helping Leo with figuring things that needed his approval. While at the same time traveling into the human world and in Makai for more souls to replenish their energy, even better the Soul bees were also loyal to Jedah, and were helping in getting Leo more souls for him as well, and in return Leo gladly helped them was not troubled of the real appearance they had, so Q-bee and her race were awarded with many things that benefited them and in return they would help Jedah with whatever they could, which Leo still insisted that he does not need to be repaid back, but Q-bee and her people would have none of that and they would always find a way to repay Leo back whether he liked it or not.
So, now that one of the three high Nobles have returned to power things started to change in Makai, as the New ruler in the Dohma castle, Leo Dohma, was taking care of Jedah's people and slowly gaining his strength. Leo was going to surprise the rest of the Darkstalkers but that will be for another time, for now he was taking care of his new kingdom and things will get more interesting in the mere future.
