Tales Of the Cosmic Wars Volume Two! A Stars Twighlight
Prologue, A Guide To The Stars.
Err, first a few disclaimers. First of all I do not own the majority of the characters in my story. For example I do not own anything from Nintendo, Sega, Sony, Square Enix, Capcom, Namco, Shoen Jump, Lucas arts and anything else I forgot . Now, as you most likely have seen from the title this is a squeal to my first volume of Tales of the Cosmic Wars, a Hero's evolution. What is more is that it's a direct continuation taking place only a week after the first part ended.
Because of this if this is your first time looking at this I highly, highly recommend you go read volume one first so you can be up to speed. Even so I hope you enjoy this story of mine as I am trying to make this my ultimate cross over story, with its own unique plot. But hopefully you will not have to take my word for it and see for yourself, and now then let the first chapter of volume two commence! Oh and PS, if you wonder why the first chapter is chapter 57 it's because I am trying to keep all of the cosmic wars in one saga after the next, think like Dragon ball, Narato, Bleach and those kind of things, enjoy!
Before the second volume begins here is a review of what happend in the first volume to those first looking at the adventures of Ben Auro.
In a universe of Magic and technology, a cosmos of great wonders and many terrors, in this universe a brutal war is raging on and has just officially entered its first year. This war that first seemed to be a civil war between the idealistic Lylat Kingdom ruled by King Atem and the profit obsessed United Federation of Zeon ruled by the president in name but tyrant in essence Weil Narche Zabi and his fellow multi-corporation allies. Weil had the power to create millions of battle droids to do his bidding but the Lylat Kingdom had its own powerful forces.
The warriors of light, the Enji Knights leaded by its founder Grand Master Myers sided with the Lylat Kingdom they were sworn to protect and with a fully fledged Enji being a match for more than 100 standard solders, monsters or robots the Lylat Kingdom was able to held its own against the powers of Zeon.
And in the mist of this war, an 18 year old brown haired blue eyed young man named Ben Auro willingly went to join the Enji Knights.
Always admiring heroes like the Enji, and looking for something that will give his life meaning he made it his dream to join the Enji. With the training he had for most of his life from his gifted genius of a fighter, his cousin Max Ben was able to get on the road to his dream, even if it took him more than once to get excepted in to the order. When he and his pet moogle friend Moz at last entered the main base of the Enji, the ancient and grand holy castle Hallow Bastion he met many new friends.
Soon his two closet friends were the ace martial arts fighter Doug Fiter and the talented magic user and a member of the energy archers of the Quincy named James Elroan.
But what made him really happy was when he found himself reunited with his best friend from his child hood, the Beautiful, smart, graceful, Lacus Raystar! When he was young Lacus was Ben's only friend. Even though she came from a much more powerful family she enjoyed spending time with Ben. But when the two turned 12 he found he she had to move away, a event that devastated him , especially because although it was not the only reason Ben blamed his father for being cheap on the
tour ride the two families were on. A cost saving move that cause Lacus to be in a twist of fate captured by a radical group. But that was in the past, now Ben had a chance to reunite with the girl he had liked more than any other. However there was one problem for Ben, she already had a boy friend. To Ben's horror it was Brad Fowltror. An extremely arrogant, aggressive and cocky male who seems to care little about the Enji Knights. To Ben's horror the girl he always had strong feelings for is in love with the biggest jerk of all!
To make matters worse not only is Brad a guy who only does things his own way no matter how much damage if causes. But he is extremely powerful! Though bad with magic and skills his power to expand his muscles and magic energy to extreme heights make him able to rip apart his foes with his raw strength alone! With this rough start Ben at least it went up from there. He soon met two people that became his new best friends.
The blond, optimist and powerful martial artist Doug Fiter.
And the red haired talented magician James Elrond, who is also a expert on the powerful Quincy group.
People who fight with powerful magic arrows.
He soon becomes friends with them and others and as luck as it he James and Doug are all part of the same squad. They are put in to squad 7, and there squads captain is none other than Cloud Strife. The blond powerful buster sword welding Enji Knight who is famous for defeating the insane Sephiroth. Although since Ben does not have much raw power or a master of much skills Cloud at first thinks Ben does not have what it takes to make it in the order. However Ben is able to show Cloud how deep his resolve is and how good he is with quick thinking. After a tense final entrance exam of sorts Ben was able to past Cloud's test and now his road to reaching his dream had begun! His long journey was faced with many hardships.
On his first mission he and his squad was attacked by a Zeon attack force. That was in turn attacked by mysterious beings of darkness that Ben soon knew to dread as the Necrocalcous!
This turn of events caused Ben, Doug and James to crash land on the world of the Mushroom Kingdom. However Ben had no time for rest as soon after he was attacked by the ruthless Vile. The dreaded helmeted Maverick that was supposed to be dead a long time ago! This change of events leaded Ben to find his true destiny. He found a scared blade called the Star Sword.
A weapon of unparallel power that was a miracle sword in a war millions of years ago. After proving his worth to its guarding, the spirit of the multi armed swordsmen the reformed Gilgamesh he was able to prove he was indeed its chosen welder. This began the start of Ben's destiny. Through this he met many friends and many enemies.
He helped the Mario bros fight of their long time announce king Bowser and his fellow greedy cohort King K Rool.
He met Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends and helped them defeat a powerful Zeon mobile armor being made there called the Aplaus.
Some of the other friends he met were the hero of Hyrule Link.
The pink wonder Kirby. The ace pilot Fox Mclcoud and his Star Fox team.
The Chozo Bounty hunter that all space pirates loath named Samus Arian, and the three elite maverick hunters Mega man X, Zero, and Axl.
Through the course of his journey he and the other Enji became to see that the Zeon army was in fact being guided by an even darker hand. The order of darkness named Sithantos. The mysterious order not only was the ones that commanded the Necrocalcous, but were the ones Vile now worked for! However that was just the start, as soon even more eviler beings came to serve the order of darkness. Some of them were even resurrected from the dead! Such cases were Sigma, the vile and powerful maverick leader of the maverick that nearly caused the capital planet of Corneria to be wiped out over a hundred years ago. Ganondorf, the dreaded king of evil that all in Hyrule fear. Others that joined Sithantos eventually were Bowser, Dr Robotnik, and Genesis. However, this was not the worst news. Soon the Enji Knights found
out who was leading Sithantos. While at first it was thought that the ruler of Sithantos was the patriarch Havoc Drashid. But soon the leader of the Enji Knights Grand Master Myers conformed his suspicions and forced the true force behind Sithantos to show himself. And it was none other than Xehamaru, a mad genus that was a former Enji Knight, and Master Myers former apprentice! The mad fallen Enji had betrayed the order to become the scholar of darkness and true leader of Sithantos.
His extreme disgust of what he saw as a corrupt sinful universe that he saw as beyond repair. His desire was to destroy the current cosmos and in its place create a universe of darkness!
While his powers were vast Ben was not totally out matched. Thanks to his desires to reach his dream and his constant training he was able to gather more powerful by the day.
He was able to find more shrines thru out the cosmos that held the crystal shards that would increase the powers of his Star Sword. To get there he had to face the dead sprits of Leon Magus, General Leo, Asch the bloody, and even Cloud's former mentor and best friend Zack Fair! Still, Ben had a difficult path to walk to fulfill his dreams. And it was not just painful because of the various monsters and madmen aiming to kill him.
Ben was even forced to face one of his former best friends, Rick. His child hood friend had become a leader of a city gang called the toxic vultures. And Rick's desires for money and power were so high that he was even ready to kill Ben to keep his power! Despite absorbing the powers of the darkness he was still defeated by Ben. And although he seemed willing to surrender the life of his friend was then ended by the Zandolorian bounty hunter Janus. Still, Ben would not let tragedy stop his dreams. Although he was not able to defeat Brad's vast raw power in a match, after even more training he was able to bring the super elite warrior and the man he soon saw as his rival, Ezan Kaiba to a draw.
All of the things Ben went through came to a head when Xehamaru unleashed his master plan. Which was a massive invasion of the capital planet of Corneria with nearly everyone Xehamaru could find to attack the planet at once! With the desire to take the ruler of the Lylat Kingdom, King Atem away and then destroy the planet it seemed like doomsday had arrived.
But the Enji rallied together, and with the help of all the hero's Ben had met he, them, Cloud and his other friends were able to catch the Sithantos Nova Crusher the Invisible Hand that Xehamaru had gone to before he could leave the planet. Ben was faced with the most dangerous battle of his life. However while it seemed like the dark lord was going to make short work of the much less experienced warrior.
However, as Ben was pushed to the brink of death he was able to reach in to the depths of his potential and bring out his full power! Activating the next stage of the Star Sword, Bankai he then was able to turn the tables on Xehamaru much to the madmen's shock! Even when Xehamaru transformed to his most powerful state he was still not able to overcome the power of Ben and the others hope, dreams and resolve.
At last Xehamaru was defeated and Ben was able to become a real Enji Knight. Though he saved the universe this in fact was only the beginning. All four Inquisitors of darkness escaped from the battle. And the deadly group of elite dark Enji, Organization XIII with their powerful beings like Xemnas, Ravxen and Maraluxia where still at large.
But even that was not the worst part.
The worst part was that for all the evil Xehamaru had done, he too was just a pawn. His true master was the supreme being of darkness. The Shin Emperor Chaos Zannacross Necron! All that defeating Xehamaru had really done was convince the dark gods second in command, Darth Damonus, to take charge and fight even harder to break the seal on his master ! With all that Ben has done so far he still has ways to go. Will he be able to fulfill his destiny and save the universe from the ultimate darkness?
Will he be able to find someone that can understand his feelings and receive love from either Lacus Raystar or Lisa Alster?
It's now time to begin the second volume of this universal tale! Hope this helps explain the situation.
While it's still better to read the first volume at least now you first timers will have a grasp at what's happened to this point. And hopefully this little recap will inspire you to read volume one as well. Well, that's that, time to get on with the show!
