Okage 2 Minichapter: The Mysterious Figure

A dark storm hovers over the Highland Village. For weeks, the once calm village has been lost in the darkness. The thunder booms over the village. Lightning illuminates the village's surroundings for a brief second before the scenery vanishes into the darkness. A torrent of rain washes over the village. Inside a mysterious mansion, a sinister figure sits in the dark as he communicates with Belioune. The only light comes from a crystal ball that projects the image of Belioune.

"It would seem that your trap in Triste has failed." Belioune said.

"I͠t͘ o̕b̀vio̷u̷s̸l̸ý ra̢n̕ iǹţo d̵i̴ff͠i͞culti͘e̸s͟." Said the mysterious figure. "It's͘ a ͠sh̢am͜e tha̶t͏ ̨my po͝wer ̸d́oe͏sņ't͡ ẃo͟rk͜ w͝hȩn exp̶osed҉ t͜o dayl̵i͢g͟ht. I ̀w͘ou͡l͢d ͏h̨a̢v̷e̷ fin͏i҉s͠hed͠ ͡tha̶t sk͞inny red҉h̛ai͢red ͘b̀oy ̕if͏ ̢i̶t̶ ̴w̨àśn̷'t ͜fo̢r̷ ͏the̷ ͡a̢ccursed̷ ́s̴un."

"It's unfortunate but, such is the power that I gave you."

"The̵ póweŕ tò ma͡ni̢púlat͏e fea̧r?" The mysterious figure pounded its fist on the table that the crystal ball rested on.

"I̛̕̕͞T͘͝'̵̴̡̢͞S̸͝͝ ҉̵͞Ư̸̷͢T̷̀́͠͝T̛É̢̢̨͞Ŗ̧͘͟L̶̡͘͞Y҉҉́͡ ̴̶̕͜͠Ù̢S̷̸̸̕͘E͞Ĺ̀͠͝E̷͟͠S̶̴̀Ś̶҉́ ̷U̴҉̧Ǹ̨̡͠Ļ̴͘͢È͟Ś̴͘͝Ş͏̛ T͜͏H̀̀Ę̸͢͠͡Ý̴̡͡ Ą̶̢̧Ŗ̴̵Ȩ͢͜ A͘͠R̨̛͏̴Ó̸͜͡Ú̵̶͘N̷̵D̢̨̨ ̵͜͠M̶E̷̵̴!̡́!͘!̢̕" It shouted as black fire came out of it's mouth.

"Calm down." Belioune said. "That damn otaku has already messed up. You may soon get your chance with them."

The mysterious figure let out a small grin. Teeth with fangs became visible to Belioune.

"I sup̛po͠se I ca̶n̷ wait̶ ̀be̛f̶or̨e I p̕l͡áy͢ w̨it̵h ͏t͏h̸e̕m̸ ̴in m̷y h͜umbl͠e͢ ab͢o͞de̴."

"Good heaven's! How sharp are your fangs?" Belioune asked surprised.

"Sh̴arp̴ ̧en̵o̷u͝gh ̷t͜o҉ ̀pier͢ce ͝armor."

"I can't imagine how painfull it would be to get bitten by you."

"Pl͝e͡ase̡ B͢elioune. ͟Once͡ th̶ey ͟s͡e̕e̕ my̧ ͝t͢r͡u͝e͝ ͘f͢or̶m҉,͢ t̛h͞e̕y w͟ill b̷e͘ ̷to͘o͟ ͝p͘a͞rąl͘yzed ͜w͟íth̢ ̛f͏e̸a͠r t͟o ̕thi͠nk̷ about ͞p͝ain."

The mysterious figure's eyes started glowing red.

"I҉ hàve some͝ ́qu͜es̷t̡i͘o̕ns͟,̨ Be͝ĺióu̴n̴e. W͏h͠e͝re͞ di͝d y͘ou ̛f͘in͢d̨ that ̕o̷t̢a͘k̕u ̧anyẁay͟s͢?"

"I'd rather not say. It's an encounter that I wish I could forget."

"H͜ow̛ ҉s̕o?"

Belioune had an embarrassed look on his face.

"I found him playing with toys in an alleyway in Triste."

"H̀a̕hah̢a!̕ ́A͜nd͡ yo̢u d̛eci̸d̸e͡d to ̵rec̕ru͏it ̴h̷ím a̴n̕y̨ways͟?"

Belioune looked deep in thought.

"I remember taking a look at some of of his comic books. He caled them 'Mang-gah.' The toys he played with and the images in his Mang-gah were the same. They also seemed to be destructive so I gave him his power to use his toys as weapons."

"Hm͢m͟m...͝ Y̕óu͠r͠ ̡ḑa͝ug̵ht̷e̴r̸ w͝as w͟i̧th ̴y͞oư t̕hat͢ time wąs̵ s̸h̵e no̵t?́" It asked."Í'm̧ ̛cu͟r͏i͡o̶us͢ if̛ h͢e said̶ ̴an͞yth͝in͝g͏.̡ "

"Bah! He kept saying something about her looking... Moeh..."

"T̵hęse̴ ́ơt͝aku ̧a͠re so҉ ͞st͏rang͝e̡. "

"Do you have any questions not involving the people I recruit?" Belioune asked with an exasperated look on his face.

"J̕ust o̷ne͠." The mysterious figure smirked. "Wḩat is ͢yo̧ur ̴ŗea̧so̕n ͏f̧or͜ taki̧ǹg ͝y̨ou̧r҉ ̢d̷aùg͞ht̷er ag͢ain?̀ I ͝d̛ò ̛r̕eća̵l͝l̕ ̡t̡h̕at you k͠ne̡w ab̷o-"
"ENOUGH!!!" Belioune yelled. "I have no reason to tell you why I did what I did. Just make sure you get rid of them and keep them out of my way."

The glow of the crystal ball faded to black.

"As̵ ̧you wish͜ ma͏st́er̸.̛"

Author's notes: Good news everyone! This chapter doesn't have to be downloadable like I originally thought.

Yep... when I said minichapter, I meant it. Hopefully, a certain snippet of text near the end isn't too revealing of anything.

For those that are curious, the font I used isn't a font at all. Instead, it's something called "unicode." I have no idea what it is. You can go to this website here if you wanna play around with it: /

I found out about this after seeing a meme called Zalgo where comics were edited so that there was some dark creature possesing one of the characters. When I came up with the idea for this particular character, I knew I had to use this.

I ran into some problems with the text. The "Zalgo" text tends to change the spacing between the words and if I try to fix it, it takes away the effect sometimes. Anyways, Let me know what you think of the "Zalgo" font. It's kind of a pain to do so if this doesn't get enough support, i'll scrap the text idea.
