Love interest: He has a crush on Viridi, a huge one. He is slightly attracted to Aero (Mainly because of this chapter), just not as much as Viridi.
Alignment: Completely Loyal to Lady Palutena, Viridi and Pit. (More so Pit)
Powers: He can fly without the power of flight. And can use more than one weapon at a time. Before he is split into two, he has a problem, where whenever he sees blood, he loses it and goes insane. Not the scared and crazy kind of insane, the sick, sadistic, deranged insane. He also has the power to absorb souls, mainly evil ones.
Bio (Oc): He was a human boy whose family was killed when the Chaos Kin was in power. He prayed to the goddess for three days, without rest, food or water. On the third day, he died... By then, Pit had defeated the Chaos Kin and Dark Pit had beaten Pandora. Palutena saved him from Hades clutches at the last second. He died when he was twelve, so he will be twelve as an angel until the aging process begins. Holding a hatred for evil he somehow becomes part Reaper, as his soul fuses with his pet Reapette.
Kid Icarus: Everyone but villians, with the exception of Hewdraw and Thanatos.
Angel opening theme: The Sanctuary
A quiet and calm boy. He often mourns the loss of his family. He usually answers questions with nods. Shows no emotion other than smiling to pretend to laugh with Pit. Whenever he refers to Pit he calls him Captain, like most centurions. He tends to ease up after a few months. The key to getting him to trust you is sympathy. He has a dark side that reveals itself whenever he comes in contact with blood, or it takes over. When it is in control, he has no free will, and his body and actions will be controled by it.

Kid Icarus Uprising 2, Fall of Light
Prologue, Part 1: The Insane Boy
It was your average day in Angel Land. Pit was training the newest centurions, angels like himself. Palutena was sleeping in her chambers. Within the past few years, Pit had matured a bit. He was now an early-riser, and looked to be around the age of your average sixteen to eighteen year old. He had gotten more serious, but on the inside, he was still the same fun loving guy. We now find our hero standing in front of a group of young angels.
"Okay everyone, it's nice to meet you. My name is Pit, I am the Captain of the centurions, and for now, I am your captain. Now, I'd like to take roll call." Pit said grabbing a clipboard and a pencil. "Okay, Night Wing?" He asked the small group of four.
"Here, Cap'n." Night said as he grabbed his Black Club.
"Okay, nice to meet you Night. Okay, um, Dylan Hawk?" Pit asked for the boy.
"It's Dy-lon Hawk" The boy corrected grabbing a Palutena Blade and ruffling his black feathers.
"Sorry about that. Aero Hawk?" Pit asked for the girl.
"Here I am!" A happy twelve year old looking girl replied raising her hand in the air, revealing a Raptor Claw. "I like to be called Aero Dynamic!"
"Hello Aero. Next, Nightingale Fledgeling?" He asked the class.
"Present. Just call me Gale" she told Pit as she moved her hand through her blue straight hair. She then pulled out a Flintlock staff from behind her back.
"Okay, hi. Now, where's Alphonse? Alphonse?" Pit called out for the angel. Soon after a young angel with black and blonde hair walked out from behind a tree. "Oh, there you are Alphonse... right?" Alphonse only nodded to him. "... Okay..." Pit said, feeling awkward. "Well anyway class, today we're going to go to the training grounds." Pit said running ahead. "Last one there's a rotten egg!" Pit shouted to his students. Immediatlely everyone began running after him. Alphonse just stood there watching as his classmates ran off. He watched for a few seconds just before lifting up his right sleeve and planted a Reaper Palm on his arm. He activated the Super Speed Power and zoomed past his classmates and caught up with Pit.
"Hello Captain..." Alphonse said quietly.
"Hey, Al! I can call you that right?" He asked him. His only reply was a nod. When they reached there, everyone was exhausted but Pit, Alphonse and Aero. "Okay, now we're going to have a tournament. I'll be competing too, so who wants a piece of me first?" Pit asked the class. Dylon then walked up to and held up his sword.
"I'll take a go, teach!" Dylon said as he flexed his still growing muscles.
"Okay." Pit said as he pulled out the First Blade. They imediately charged towards each other. Soon Palutena walked in and put her hand on Alphonse's shoulder.
"So, everyone, are you enjoying your day?" She asked them as everyone turned to her and began bowing.
"Good Morning, Lady Palutena!" Everyone but Alphonse said aloud.
"Good morning everyone!" Palutena told them as they rose. "So, Pit, what's happening here?" she asked her Captain.
"Well, a tournament for recognizing their skill level." Pit said raising his blade. "I wanted to see where they were at so I would know where to teach them.
"Well, don't stop on my account, this looks entertaining." Palutena said as she followed the angels up into the stands. Soon Pit and Dylon charged towards each other, their blades clashed rapidly.
"Darn! He's fast!" Dylon admitted to himself aloud as he dodged an attack.
"Never let your guard down!" Pit said as he blasted him in the back with a charged shot. Making him die and then respawn right next to Gale.
"Nice try Dylon." Gale said as she petted his head. "But then again, what did you expect from a Captain? He's fought countless enemies!" Gale said as she grabbed her staff. "Can I go next?!" She shouted to Pit.
"Sure, but who do you want to challenge?" Pit asked her smiling.
"I want to fight Alphonse. It's always the quiet ones..." She said as everyone but Palutena and Pit snickered. His only reply was a nod.
"Wait, you want to fight shorty there?! He's a little too small." Night Wing said laughing. "You need a hand fighting her? Iis she being a big meanie?" he said speaking in a baby talk tone.
"... Well, then I'll take on both of you, your rudeness is nearly intolerable..." Alponse told them quietly, blushing as he did. Everyone looked at him, scared for him. They were the top fighters under Pit in Skyworld how would this small kid beat them?
"Okay, so it's Alphonse versus Gale and Night!" Palutena shouted before waving her staff sending them to the field. Pit jumped into the stands to watch the match. "Begin!" Palutena shouted as she raised her staff. Night came up to him and swung his club, missing a few times until he landed a hit.
"Yeah!" He said as he hit the boy. The boy flew back a few feet and was attacked from behind from Gale who was sniping him. He was beaten like this for several seconds, using the healing Power to heal himself. Suddenly Night almost slammed his club on Gale. As it grew closer, she braced for impact. Al saw this and used the Super Speed power to rush and grab her.
"Why did you save me?" She asked him. He then put her down and raced for Night Wing. Night turned for him and swung his club, sending him flying into a wall twenty meters away from the duo. He coughed up a bit of blood when suddenly the innocence left his eyes as he opened them. The cute, innocent, sad boy they knew was gone.
"Well, I guess it's my turn..." He said with a sadistic smile plastered on his face as he cracked his neck. He suddenly reached in his left pocket, and pulled out a Ninja Palm. Immediately it grasped his left arm and he threw a few energy kunai at his opponents, forcing them to block it with their weapons.
"Woah! What happened!?" Gale asked as he appeared behind her. He then jumped on top of her like in a chicken fight and shifted his weight in order to throw her into Night. They both flew back a few feet, and then stopped. Suddenly she jumped on his club and he sent her flying at the boy. She then knocked him into the air, shooting at him as he flew up. This was his cue to jump up and use his club to slam him back into the Earth. Once he reached up there, he noticed the energy stored into Alphonse's palms and he was spinning at an impressive speed. Suddenly he stopped and blasted him with a giant shurken and a reapette. There was a giant explosion of smoke in the sky and saw only Alphonse land back on the ground.
"I did not see this coming..." Palutena said as she watched the young angel. He lost the demented look and was back to innocent. He ran over to Gale and was about to finish her off with his Reaper Palm. As a last resort she shot him with her staff, surprisingly, this actually finished him off, with him knocked onto the ground.
"I won? I won!" Gale shouted in happiness. "Night we won!" She said raising her staff.
"Behind you!" Everyone including Palutena shouted to the girl as he rose again and put both of his hands together and energy began to form there. He jumped back and the ball of energy split into two and then flung them, which soon re-joined together forming a reapette resting in the middle of a shuriken, sent right to her, ripping her in half and forcing her to respawn right in front of Night.
Lukas: WHOA! How'd he just survive that?!
Howl: Haven't you ever heard of the playing dead power?
Lukas: ... Oh! Makes sense now.
"How'd he beat us?" he asked her with his hand under his chin in knuckle form.
"I dunno, but I'll tell you, he's one tough cookie." she said following him with her eyes as he sat next to Pit. "But no one has ever beat us."
"I'm next!" Aero said as she jumped from the stands to the middle of the stage without flying. "I challenge all of you for a free-for-all!" she said pointing to all of the angels.
"You may have to wait Aero, Pit there's something attacking Athens!" Palutena said as she raised her staff to activate the power of flight and opened a door.
"We can help!" Night said as he raised his club.
"No, we don't have enough time!" Pit said running into the door. Immediately Alphonse ran in behind him.
"Alphonse stop!" Palutena shouted just before he flew off. "Ugh! Pit, you have to watch Alphonse! He's going to have to help you since he won't allow me to recall him." Palutena told Pit through his laurel crown.
"Yes, Lady Palutena. WHOA! He just took off! Quick! Speed me up!" He told the goddess just before she had him match speeds with Alphonse. "Hey you! Pull over!" Pit joked, stopping him immediately. "What?! He just stopped?" Pit said as he flew back. "Hey, why'd you stop there?"
"You're my captain." He told him as he looked behind him, noticing a monoeye. Pit turned around and noticed this monoye and shot it with his First Blade.
"We have to watch our backs. We don't know what's happening here." Pit said as he flew closer to the town. Encountering a few Ornes, he panicked and pushed both himself and Alphonse out of the way. "We'd better get to the ground!" Pit said as he increased speed again. When they landed they saw a fire in the coluseum. "Twinbellows!" Pit shouted as he ran forward, Alphonse followed swiftly and silently. Soon enough they found themselves in the area with Twinbellows attacking the people in the stands. "Twinbellows! Here boy! Ol' Pit's got a friend to teach you some more new tricks!" Pit said to the dog, angering it. It lunged for him and he dodged with grace and finess. Suddenly they saw the impression of a god in the atmosphere.
"Sit boy." The god commanded, forcing Twinbellows to sit down and look up at it. The god then turned towards Pit. "My my, Pitty Pat, look how much you've grown. I haven't seen you in two years and you look like you're sixteen."
"Hades!" Pit shouted to the god.
"Shut up!" Alphonse said as his left eye flashed red then blue as he became irratated of their squabble. "I'm sorry." he told both Hades and Pit, forcing them both to be confused.
"Kind of a downer isn't he Pitty?" Hades asked his enemy.
"I don't know I just met him." Pit told the god. Alphonse then began walkng out of the colluseum. Hades then spoke up to the quiet boy.
"Just where do you think you're going?" He asked him, crossing his arms as he did.
"..." Alphonse stayed silent as he looked at the god. This caused Hades to get irratated.
"GRR! I'll teach you some respect! Cerberus! Come on out!" Hades called as a giant three headed dog with snakes all over its body fell out of the sky, landing right in front of Alphonse. "I was going to save him for when Pitty came back to battle me, if he can survive, that is." Hades said laughing. He then pointed directly to Alphonse. "Sic him!" Hades said as he disappeared. Suddenly the dogs rushed Al.
"Alphonse move!" Pit called out for his student. Alphonse merely stood there, waiting for them to close in. "MOVE!" Pit screamed as one of them lashed at Alphonse. Alphonse suddenly jumped on top of Twinbellows. He then brought an End All Arm from his bag to slam Twinbellows on the head with it. Twinbellows writhed in pain and anger, attempting to throw him off. Alphonse suddenly was flown off and used a Super speed power to run on the walls. Pit suddenly had an idea.
"Al! Grab my hand!" Pit said as Alphonse obeyed. Suddenly Pit and Alphonse were flying from the speed in circles in the stadium, and Pit was shooting at the dogs. Soon enough, they finished off Twinbellows, leaving Cerberus. "How do we beat him?" Pit asked his student.
"With some help!" Aero shouted as she flew in and was shooting Cerberus with her Raptor Claws. Ceberus writhed in pain before smacking her with its tail. Alphonse suddenly jumped and caught her and crashed into the stands, leaving Pit to fight the monster alone. Pit jumped onto one of its paws and smacked its head with his blade. Alphonse suddenly jumped out of the stands, using Wolf Claws. He hit Ceberus over and over and over, but nothing affected the dog.
"Ugh! We've got to find a way to beat him!" Pit said as he jumped over a swipe. "Can we crush him or something?" Pit asked himself. Ceberus only smacked Pit, sending him down the stairs and outside of the colluseum. Ceberus suddenly howled, believing it had finished off Pit. Alphonse flew outside to catch Pit and fly him back into the area. "Thanks Alphonse. Can you drop me on it's middle head?" Pit asked him. He obeyed and Pit landed on the middle head of Ceberus. Another head suddenly charged for him, he held his blade out and stuck its mouth open. The other lunged for him, but he held onto the blade, having the right head trying to get rid of it, it was too hard to crush and too tall to spit out. Pit turned it and pulled it out, having Ceberus snap its jaw shut. It then flung Pit into a wall. Out of nowhere, Ceberus was flown into a wall, by a human.
"How's it going Angel Face?" the man said as he lowered his giant sword. Pit recognized the man instantly.
"Magnus!" Pit shouted to the human. The three headed dog then lunged for Magnus, it suddenly crashed down into the ground. Dark magic resonated from the attack. Pit looked behind Magnus and saw Gaol.
"Dark Lord Gaol?" Pit shouted as he stood up. She wore a short dress that reached her knees, covered her shoulders and had a sword behind her back.
"Actually, I go by just Gaol now." She said as she threw Ceberus up into the air, using her magic. He landed back onto the ground with a loud bang. It howled in pain just before Magnus walked up and cut off the three heads. It evaporated into Underworld matter as it died.
"Play dead." Magnus said as he threw his blade on his back. Pit suddenly ran over. "I guess your goddess has been doing a good job so far, there's been peace for the past two years... but with that." Magnus began.
"The world could be in jeporardy again." Pit said as he looked at Aero, who was still unconcious. Alphonse suddenly flew to her, picked her up bridal style and flew next to Pit. Gaol suddenly gasped.
"Oh, the poor thing, she's hurt." Gaol said as she put her hands to her mouth. "Pit, who are these new angels?" She asked him.
"These are my students, Alphonse," Pit said pointing to him. "And... Aero." Pit said looking at the unconcious girl, worried for her health, seeing as she was knocked out from the ferocious dog.
"Here, just come back to out house, we'll get her up and kicking in no time." Gaol said walking away, soon after followed by Magnus. Pit walked down the stairs after the two humans. Alphonse simply flew down to make sure that Aero was safe. Soon after, they arrived at their house.
"Wow, nice place you got here." Pit said looking at the outer part of the house. It had a white fence, a swing set, the house was blue with a white roof, the grass was green and the door was a traditional wood brown. Magnus walked forward and opened the door. Suddenly a little girl, no older than maybe a year, came running.
"Mommy, daddy!" She said as she hugged Magnus' leg. Magnus picked her up and turned around.
"Pit, I'd like you to meet our daughter, Vida," Magnus began.
"And our son, Lorcan." Gaol finished, as he came out. Soon after, a young teenager, maybe seventeen or older, came out from behind them. Magnus pulled out a bag of hearts.
"Thanks again for watching our kids on such short notice." He said handing him a golden heart. He held his hand up stating that he did not want it.
"It's not a problem Magnus, you and Gaol have kept the people of Athens safe for the past two years." He told them just before he looked at Alphonse. "A-Alphonse?" He asked the boy. All he did was nod. "Big brother? You're alive?" He asked the boy. Pit suddenly jumped in.
"Wait, you two know each other?" Pit asked him.
"Yes, my name is Atmos Mordred, the boy right there is my older brother, Alphonse Mordred." He explained, with a hint of hatred in his voice.
"Wait, hold on... let me get this straight, you are his brother?" Magnus asked the teen.
"Yes. And he wanted to pray to our goddess to save himself!" He said pointing to him, as he glared.
"Atmos?" Alphonse thought to himself. "Brother..." He said to him, smiling lightly, but happily as he did. Atmos only kicked him in the face. He threw Aero into Pit's hands as he fell down.
"Alphonse!" Pit shouted as he ran towards the student. Gaol pulled Aero, him and her family inside of the house. Atmos then grabbed Alphonse by the collar.
"How could you? Our goddess left us! How could you still pray to her? You should have been praying to Zeus! He would have kept you alive! Palutena is a sorry excuse for a goddess!" He said slapping Alphonse. "You just prayed and died for it! And what did she do? Make you another pawn in her game of chess?" Atmos spat at him as everyone went inside and watched. Magnus soon grew irratated.
"I'm going out there!" Magnus said as he grabbed his sword. Gaol put a barrier up to stop him. "What the heck, Gaol?"
"This is a family matter, I say we leave them alone." Gaol said as she took the children upstairs. Outside Alphonse was beaten and thrown down.
"You stayed there! I told you to come with me, and you still stayed!" He shouted at Alphonse as he kicked him in the stomach. He stood up and all he did was point North of the house. He began walking there. "Where are you going?!" He asked him. Alphonse only continued waking. Soon after Atmos decided to follow him, Pit ran along behind Atmos, still carrying his blade. Soon after ten minutes of walking, they found themselves in a cemetery. Pit suddenly began to have chills race up his back.
"What is he coming here for?" Pit thought as he followed. Alphonse kept walking until he reached a tombstone. He moved to the left of it. Atmos walked up and read it.
"Here lies the family, Mordred. Mother, Father and Son. The sons last words were, "Please! Goddess Palutena! Please protect and spare my brother! Take my life in exchange! Just protect my little brother!" He screamed this just before dying. This was not the fault of Lady Palutena or Captain Pit. The Chaos Kin had taken control of her and killed countless people, Men, Women, and children. -A fallen Centurion..." Atmos read aloud as he fell to his knees and cried. Y-you sacrificed your life for me?" He asked between his tears of pain and sorrow. Alphonse suddenly walked over and hugged him. Atmos held him tightly as he cried.
"It's okay." Alphonse told him. "You're my brother, my baby brother, I'd do anything for you." Alphonse said attempting not to cry. Pit suddenly began crying, no, he teared up at this sad family reunion.
"Alphonse!" Atmos shouted as he gripped his brother into an even tighter hug as he cried onto his shoulder.
"Don't cry, I did it because I love you. The reason that older siblings are born first is to protect the ones who come after." Al told his brother. He finally stopped crying.
"How come you look like you're twelve? You died when you were 15." He asked his brother.
"Because, I sacrificed my life. I lost three years." Alphonse told him the punishment. He finally let go.
"So... how have you been doing the past two years?" He asked him.
"Good. But Captain Pit and I have to get back. He has to teach us new centurions." Alphonse told him.
"Okay, see you around?"
"Yes." Alphonse said giving him one last hug before walking back to Magnus and Gaol's house. Atmos began walking away just before something cut him down. Alphonse and Pit did not notice as they walked back. Once they arrived at the house, they knocked on the door, only to be opened by Magnus.
"Hey Angel Face." Magnus said as he let them in and led them to the guest room where Gaol was cleaning Aero's wounds. She turned when she noticed them.
"Boys, welcome back. Aero's still unconcious." Gaol said as she put her hand to Aero's head.
"Oh." Pit said as he and Alphonse walked closer to her bed. Pit looked at her as he noticed that she was still in pain. Alphonse then put his hand on Pit's shoulder.
"We should leave..." Alphonse said quietly as he went to touch Aero's hand. As he did, he noticed that she was heating up a bit. "It must be a defence mechanism." Alphonse said as he carried her onto his back, like a piggyback ride. Gaol stood up.
"You can't take her yet! She's not in peak condition!" Gaol said.
"Gaol, let them go... Pit knows what he's doing." Magnus said putting a hand on her shoulder.
"O-okay, but just be careful with her." Gaol told the boys. Pit smiled.
"Thanks again... for everything." Pit told the couple.
"You're welcome." Magnus said as he helped the boys carry Aero downstairs and outside. "You sure you'll be fine?" He asked the two.
"Yeah, we'll be fine." Pit said as he hit his laurel crown.
"Lady Palutena, we're ready to come back now." Pit said to the goddess. Suddenly the three angels were enveloped in a bright light and were teleported back to Angel Land. Alphonse laid Aero on the ground and out of nowhere, Dylon came running towards the trio.
"Aero!" He shouted as he hugged his unconcious sister. "What did you do?" He said looking at Alphonse and blaming him for his sister being unconcious. Alphonse only walked closer. Dylon pulled out a Palutena Blade and pointed it to his throat. "You hurt my sister!" He said crying. "You hurt my baby sister!" He said as he held her tightly and weeped. Alphonse only walked closer and noticed that one of her wings was bent backwards. She had a broken wing. He walked away.
"Alphonse..." Pit said as he watched the student leave.
"GO! Run away you COWARD!" Dylon shouted as he watched Alphonse walk away. He came back soon after holding a red vial in his hand. "Stay away from my sister!" Dylon said as he raised his blade.
"Please move... she has a broken wing..." Alphonse said quietly and blushing as he pulled his toga closer to his face.
"Don't touch her, you Hell-spawn!" He said putting the blade to his neck, allowing the feathers to come out and nearly slit his throat. Pit walked over and put his hand on his shoulder.
"He's only trying to help." Pit told him, wiping the remaining tears from the gravestone event. Dylon then backed away from his sister, allowing Alphonse to get closer. He took his outer toga off and used it as a pillow for her. He then opened the vial allowing the smoke to exit the bottle.
"W-what's that stuff?" Dylon asked. Alphonse only looked at him, as he said,
"The Vial of The Gods. It is considered a soft drink for gods, but it can heal all of the wounds of a... lesser being. Alphonse said as he opened Aero's mouth and poured a drop in. She suddenly began choking before a sickening snap could be heard from her wing. It had healed. Dylon ran to his sister, as her eyes finally opened.
"B-brother?" She called out. He cried and his tears fell.
"I-I'm here Aero! I'm here! Don't you ever do that to me again!" He said crying. She only sat up.
"Big bro, you need to chill out." She said as she stood up. She noticed Pit was standing nearby watching them while Alphonse sat on the ground holding a red transparent flask. "Wait... how'd I get back to Angel Land? I thought that I was in that colluseum and we were fighting that three-headed dog." she said noticing that she was home.
"Actually, Ceberus knocked you out, broke one of your wings and we brought you back. But we're glad to see you're okay." Pit said smiling at his student.
"But, what is that stuff that I drank? It tastes horrible." she said looking at Alphonse and the vial.
"Drink of the Gods, a drink meant for a god, it can heal anything else." Alphonse said as he handed her the flask. She blushed as his hand brushed hers.
"T-thank you A-A-Alphonse." she said stuttering.
"It's fine." Alphonse said walking away.
'Eek! He's so cool!' Aero shouted in her mind. "He's nice." Aero said aloud blushing.
"Well, should we get back to the lesson?" Pit asked his students.
"Yes captain." Aero said still staring off into the direction that Alphonse had walked off to.
"Okay, Aero, can you please retrive Alphonse, Dylon can you try to find Night and Gale?" Pit asked the two. Both saluted him.
"Yes sir!" They said in unison.
"Guys, guys. Just call me Pit. None of that Captain or sir stuff. I'm just a normal angel." Pit said before they walked off.
"Okay, now to find Night and Gale... Gale! Where are you?" He called out for his girlfriend.
"Oh, you're so cool Pitoo!" he heard her say from down the hall. He instantly ran over and saw her with the dark-winged angel.
"Yeah-yeah, whatever I'm out, and it's Tip, not that Pittoo stuff." He said turning around, accidentally giving his hair a little flip. Dylon suddenly felt severly jealous.
"Hey! You don't talk to her like that!" he said drawing his blade. Pitoo then turned to face him.
"Who are you? Never seen you before." He said as he put his knuckle on his hip.
"I'm her boyfriend!" Dylon said pointing his blade at him. "And who are you?"
"Well, I guess you could call me Pit-stains brother. I'm actually his true self... the side he supresses to be who he is." Dark Pit said, unfazed by the weapon pointed at his neck.
"You sound a bit pretentious."
"Coming from the god of it." Dark Pit mocked.
"Do you want to fight me or something?" Dylon asked him, in an attempt to fight him. Pitoo merely walked away.
"Why? You can't even beat the faker." he said as he walked away, back to his room.
"Get back here!" Dylon shouted just before being pulled back by Gale by his toga.
"Babe, chill. He's just being himself." Gale told him.
"Yeah, but!" He began.
"No but's let's just go." She said to him. Dark Pit then leaned out of his room and looked down the hall. The two angels were gone.
"Oh, good they're gone." He said as he walked out. "Now to get to the training grounds."
Aero was walking down the halls looking for Alphonse, as her Guard Captain commanded. "A-Alphonse?" she called out, still blushing. Suddenly she heard a violently dark vibration run through the halls. She ran towards it without thinking. It suddenly grew louder and more apparent in the air. She continued following until the light in the halls were dim. She continued running until she noticed a door that was slightly ajar. She looked inside and noticed that it was slightly brighter in the room. Two figures were in there, but they were easy to make out. (Meaning that they are easily visible not the... other meaning.) One was an angel playing a black stringed golden harp, while the other was a Reapette. "A-Alphonse?" She called out, scared, making the angel discontinue the somber elegy. The room and halls suddenly lit up to their original glory.
"Yes?" He asked as he turned around. The Reapette hid behind his back.
"Look out!" She shouted as she put her Raptor Claws on and jumped into his room. He jumped in front of the Reap-kin.
"No! Please don't hurt Reapy!" He said as he stood in front of the Reapette.
"W-what? Are you crazy! That's a baby reaper! Do you know how dangerous those things are if they're brought to their full potenial? They become Great Reapers!" She said pointing at it.
"No, he's my pet!" Alphonse said beginning to cry. "Please don't hurt him." Aero suddenly put away her weapons. "He'd never hurt a fly." She sighed, defeated, seeing as he would protect this thing with his life.
"I believe you." She told him, walking towards Reapy and petting him on the head.
"W-what?" he asked the girl.
"I believe you, I know you wouldn't lie. I can just tell the kind of person you are." She told him as Reapy rubbed his head to her hand. Alphonse finally let the tears he had been holding back out.
"T-thank you Aero!" He said as he ran up and hugged her tightly as he gave her a kiss on the cheek. She began blushing wildly as she realized that he was doing this. "Thank you so much!" He said as he continued hugging her. Dylon suddenly walked by with Gale. He noticed Alphonse hugging her, but failed to notice Reapy. He suddenly grew angry and brought a Viper Blade out.
"Let go of my sister!" He said pointing the Blade of Snakes (Viper Blade) at him. Alphonse let her go immediately.
"I-I'm sorry Aero... I was just happy that someone finally accepted Reapy." He said giving a light blush.
"I-it's... n-no-not a p-pr-problem." she said blushing a shade of red that would be envied by a tomato. Dylon noticed Reapy soon after as Reapy flew behind Alphonse.
"Get away from them!" He said as he grabbed his sister and pulled her out of the room. "What's a Reapette doing here?" He said as he shot at Reapy. Alphonse jumped in the way of the shot. "You idiot!" He shouted at the boy.
"As long as I live, no one will hurt Reapy." Alphonse said as he pulled an Aurum Blade out of his bag and ran towards towards him, clashing blades quicker than you could say "Holy crap."
Howl: WHAT IS SO HOLY ABOUT HOLY CRAP? IS IT A GOD OR GODDESSES CRAP?! I NEED TO KNOW!
Lukas: Howl, chill the heck out, and continue the story, you random teenager.
Howl: Okay, *Cough* ... back to the story.
Lukas: Why is my creator such an idiot?
Howl: Aw! Thanks Lukas, I love you too! *Sarcasm*
Lukas: ... Let's just get back on track.
Dylon ran out to the arena, where ironically, Pit, Night, Dark Pit and Lady Palutena was waiting for them to return for class. "Where are thay?" Pit asked just before noticing Dylon flying to the middle of the colluseum with Alphonse and a Reappette right behind.
"A Reapette! That means a reaper is nearby." Palutena said as she looked at Reapy and raised her staff and shield. Suddenly Dylon shot a Mega-Laser Power at Alphonse knocking him to the ground. WIthin seconds, Alphonse was in Crisis Mode.
"Alphonse!" Aero shouted as she stood in front of the boy who protected his Reapette with his life.
"Get away from him!" Dylon said to her.
"No! I'm not a baby anymore! You can't tell me what to do!" She told her older brother. Gale ran over to her brother.
"We have to kill it! It can lead the Reap-kin here!" Gale shouted at her. "You have to get Alphonse away from it and let us kill it!"
"NO! I won't let you hurt him!" Alphonse shouted as he drank from the Vial, healing himself within seconds. "If you kill him..." He began looking down as he lightly pushed Aero out of the way. "Then kill me too!" Alphonse said just before Pit ran over to the student.
"Alphonse, stop. I'm not having fighting in this class. I don't want any of you getting hurt." He told Alphonse.
"I don't care, I'm not letting anyone hurt Reapy. He's like family to me. He was always there for me when I was alone. He was there with me the moment I died. I won't let him die, and if he does, he's not going alone." Alphonse said as he removed, what appeared to be a contact from his right eye. He opened it a few seconds later revealing a golden hue in his right eye as he put Reaper Palms on both of his hands. Reapy suddenly hopped on his head and lowered his scythe, so it was able to slit Alphonses throat. It suddenly turned into a skull mask. Alphonse put it on and stared at Dylon for three seconds before growing at an incredible rate so that he became a Great Reaper in mere seconds.
"Oh no." Palutena said as she looked at the child, turned Reap-kin. Dark Pit sprung into action, grabbing his Silver Bow.
"Enough talkity-talk, there's fighting to be done." He said as shot an arrow into The Great Reapers head. It barely budged as the arrow implanted itself into its head. It did not even turn towards him, it kept its eyes on Dylon as it raised his scythe and prepared to slam it down onto him. Aero ran in the way of her brother as the scythe clashed with Dark Pit and Pit's blades.
"What are you doing? Kill her!" A voice in Alphonse's head shouted. He dropped his scythe and gripped his head.
"NO! I WON'T HURT HER!" He screamed aloud as he tore the mask off of his face, becoming an angel again.
"What have you done!? OBEY ME!" the voice screamed at him.
"NO! I WON'T I'M NOT YOUR SERVANT" he screamed back.
Palutena looked at the boy as he fought with himself. She suddenly gasped in fear and surprise. "He's teeming with Madness... that can only mean... Lancelot..." she mumbled under her breath.
"DO IT KILL THE GIRL!" the voice shouted in his head.
"NO!" He said resisting with all of his heart. Aero then ran over to hit him with her claws.
"Alphonse stop!" she said as she slashed at him. Pit suddenly ran over to stop him.
"Calm down!" Pit said as he drew his blade and tried to hit him.
"NO! GET AWAY!" Alphonse screamed as he flew Pit away from him with a blast. Reapy jumped off of his head and was flying around in panic. Aero suddenly pulled off her claws and hugged Alphonse tightly as he writhed in pain.
"Alphonse! Calm down! I don't want to see you this way!" she said crying. "Alphonse!" she shouted as she cried onto him, snapping him out of it in seconds.
"Huh?" He said looking around as his eyes darted the area in suspicion. He then looked down and noticed Aero hugging him and crying. "Aero?" he asked the girl. She looked up and into his eyes and saw that he was calm. He pulled out a case and put a blue contact over his yellow eye.
"Alphonse!" she shouted as she crashed her lips onto his. He began blushing wildly. She kissed him violently and passionately.
Lukas: O-okay! I've had enough! I'm out of here!
Howl: At least wait until the episode's over! It's just getting good!
Lukas: Wait, what? You?! A perv? Never pegged you for one.
Howl: No, I'm talking about story wise, Lukas.
Lukas: Oh... okay then. (Note to self, never question this weirdo... noted)
"G-g-g..." Alphonse tried to say. "St-st-st...!" he tried to say as he backed up but she leaned into it more, wrapping her arms around his neck. Pit was blushing just watching the two kiss while Tip (Dark Pit) merely turned away and smiled.
"Hmph, cute." he said quietly as he began walking away. Palutena still had her eyes on Alphonse as if he was some kind of Underworld Monster.
"Maybe I should have Pit keep an eye on that boy... he seems innocent, but one can never know." Palutena mumbled under her breath as she watched Alphonse get kissed.
"St-sto..." he said resisting the urge to kiss her back. He leaned back and they both fell down with her on top of him. He suddenly pushed her off to catch his breath. He began breathing heavily just before running off to hide in his room, with Reapy right behind him.
"A-Alphonse c-come back! I-I didn't mean to kiss you!" Aero shouted as she began running. Dylon ran in front of her.
"Oh, no, little missy! You're coming with me!" He said as he pulled her by her ear.
"Ow! Ow! OW! Stop it Dylon! I can kiss a guy if I want!" she said trying to break out of her older brother's grip. "Stop it!" she said as she slapped his hand away. "You never let me grow up!" She told her brother angrily. "You keep babying me, but I'm fourteen! I am fourteen human years old! Why can't I have a boyfriend?! Is it because I still look like I'm twelve?" she shouted at her brother.
"Because..." He began.
"No! You never let me make my own choices! You probably just want to marry me off to a rich suitor, just like dad! Well I won't!" she said crying and running off.
"Aero! As your older brother, I command you to stop!" he told his sister. Dark Pit walked over and put a hand on his shoulder.
"Dude, stop. Just let her be who she is. She's growing up, you have to let her go." he said as he looked at the boys face.
"Shut up!" He said as he swung his blade, which was dodged with ease.
"You've got to calm down." Dark Pit said as he prepared to engage in combat. Palutena stopped them.
"Power of Caging!" she said, locking the two boys in a cage.
"Let me out, Palutena." Dark Pit commanded. She opened the door to their cages.
"Sorry Pittoo, just didn't want another fight, what with this being Pit's class's first day." Palutena told him.
"It's fine." He said walking off. Pit then turned to his students.
"Okay guys, seeing as a battle had happened today that was most likely life threatening, whilst I talk with Dylon, Aero and Alphonse you will have a free time. Meet me at the hot springs in thirty minutes, Dismissed!" he said to Night and Gale. He walked off with Dylon following him.
"Why do you need to talk to us teach?" he asked.
"To figure out something." Pit said as he made his way to Alphonses room. He knocked on the door. "Alphonse? Can I come in?" he asked the boy. He only walked forward holding Reapy in his arms and opening the door allowing Pit into his room, which was filled with books, a bed fit for one person and weapons hung on the walls. "Okay, we need to talk." Pit said to the boy. "Alone." Pit said looking at Reapy. Alphonse shook his head. "Okay. Well anyway, what happened back there? Why did you just start attacking?" He asked his student, who pointed at Dylon who stood in the doorway.
"What'd I do?" he asked. "I did nothing wrong! He has a Reapette! He's the one at fault!" he said as he walked in and tried to pry Al away from his pet. Alphonse pulled away and sat in the corner still holding him.
"Dylon, try to be nice." Pit said. "How did you and Reapy meet, Al?" Pit asked. Alphonse finally spoke up.
"Reapy's master left him behind in the town where I lived because he wouldn't hurt anyone." Alphonse said to the captain.
"That's really nice. But he's still a reapette. Are you sure that you can keep him under control so he won't kill anyone?" Pit asked the boy. He nodded. "Well, then. I'll just ask Lady Palutena to just let you keep him. Alphonse suddenly began crying. He let go of Reapy and went over to hug Pit, who hugged the boy back. "I'll go inform Lady Palutena... actually, Dylon can you go speak to the goddess?" he asked his student kindly.
"Yeah-yeah." he said walking off.
"Okay, now we have to get to Aero and talk about that whole, lip contact incident." Pit said looking at Alphonse. Alphonse started blushing wildly. "What's wrong?" Pit asked him. He shook his head. "Okay, let's go then maybe we can all go to a hot spring... my back is killing me from that blast."
"Sorry." Alphonse told his captain as he stared at his feet.
"It's not a problem! Besides, we're still friends right?" he asked the boy.
"Y-yes, we are, Captain Pit." He said to his captain.
"Well, that's a start, come on. Let's go to Aero's room and go talk with her." Pit said standing up. Alphonse nodded as he followed. After about a minute of walking they arrived at Aero's room. "Why don't you knock?" Pit asked, hoping to bring the boy out of his shyness. Alphonse hesitated just before Reapy petted his head.
"It's okay, she won't be angry." it seemed like his Reapette said. Alphonse nodded and walked over to the door and knocked on it three times.
"M-miss Aero?" he called out.
"B-be right there!" she said as she quickly tidied up her room of her stuff. She then opened the door after checking her hair in the mirror on her door. "Hi Alphonse, Hi Pit. Come on in!" She told them both as she pulled out two chairs. "So... what's happening?" she asked her teacher and classmate.
"Well, this is about..." Pit began before Alphonse interruppted.
"Why'd you kiss me?" he asked, putting it crudely.
"W-well... you see... it was... a thank you!" she said blushing wildly.
"A means of gratitude?" he asked the girl.
"Y-yeah! You helped me get back home, helped me get better and gave me your outer toga! Oh yeah! Almost forgot!" she said as she brought it out. It was ironed and smelled quite nice, like the morning dew on grass. She handed it to him.
"T-thank you." he said as he grabbed it. He began re-wrapping it around his body, much like how Pit wore his. Aero was still blushing.
"S-so was that all?" she asked them.
"Well, no... I figured that since everyone is still getting to know each other, we all go take a dip in the hot spring and get to know everyone!" Pit said smiling at the mention of his favorite place.
"O-okay." she said blushing.
"Why don't you and Alphonse head there and I'll meet you there as I gather everyone else?" he asked his students, walking out. Aero then turned to Alphonse.
"S-so... do you... want to go now?" she asked him. Reapy jumped off his head and rubbed himself against her. She grabbed him and hugged him tightly. "AW! Now I know why Al keeps you around! You're a little ball of happiness and sunshine, aren't you!" she said kissing him on the forehead. Reapy gave out a few Reap-kin sounds before flying back onto Alphonses head.
"It is your choice, Miss Aero." he said bowing.
"Al, you don't have to call me miss... I'm probably younger than you... just call me Aero." she said blushing and holding her hand over her heart.
"Okay... Aero." he said. He then walked out of the room and waited for her to follow. She did after locking her door. She blushed most of the way. Suddenly Alphonse bumped into a taller angel.
"Whoops, sorry little buddy." he said looking down. "New here, sheesh, just die right after reading your family's grave makes you want to... Alphonse?" he asked. Alphonse looked up.
"Hello Atmos." he said smiling. Reapy hissed at his brother. A show of respect... in a way... a Reap-kin way.
"Whoa, how's it going big-bro?" he asked him. "Give me some skin." he said offering to bro-fist him. Alphonse suddenly started attempting to pull a piece of skin off of himself. "Not like that!" He said hanging his head in embarrassment. "So where are you two off to in a hurry?" he asked.
"We're going to a hotspring!" Aero said happily.
"Oh. Can I come? I've always wanted to try one!" he said.
"Okay!" Aero said taking his hand and leading him there, leaving Alphonse all alone with Reapy.
With Aero and Atmos.
"You're brother's really nice!" Aero said as she led him to the hot spring.
"Yeah he is." he said. "How'd you two meet?"
"We're in the same class." she said smiling.
"Oh, that's interesting." he said as he held her hand, smiling at her innocence.
"Yeah, and he's super-cute! No wait! I mean!... uh..." she said blushing wildly. Atmos laughed.
"You like him?! Oh my Zeus!" he said laughing.
"What's so funny?" she asked him, pouting.
"He never seemed like the kind of guy to have a girl chasing after him. He's always so quiet... Always been no one knows why." he told her.
"So what's wrong with liking him?" she asked him, still pouting for him laughing.
"Well, nothing." he said bending down and petting her head. "But don't worry, he's a real neat guy!" he said just before noticing Alphonse walking towards them.
"Hello." he said just before walking up behind Aero to open the door. "Ladies first." he said causing Aero to blush as she walked in. Gale and Night were already in there.
"There you two lovebirds are! We've been waiting for you." Gale said giggling. Aero began blushing as her crush on Alphonse was quite noticable.
"But we're not in love." Alphonse said apethetically to Gale as he looked at the water. He began removing his sandals as Atmos and Aero also removed their shoes.
"Hey, is there a changing room?" Atmos asked Night.
"Over there." he said pointing behind him.
"Thanks." Atmos said walking in coming out a minute later covered by a towel. Alphonse walked in to the males changing room and wrapped himself in multiple towels. (He really hates being close to naked.) Aero started blushing as she ran into the women's changing room.
"Okay, Air! He's just a boy, you're a girl. Just relax! He'll be mature about it." she told herself quietly. Alphonse was facing away blushing as he tried to keep the towel toga wrapped around him. Atmos noticed.
"Al! Relax! Just come on in!" he told his older brother. He obeyed and jumped into the water quickly, still blushing and covering his mouth in the water.
"Cannonball!" Aero shouted quickly as she jumped in, splashing everyone in there. She resurfaced after a bit. The water was five feet deep, a usual safety hazard but not for most of them. "Sorry." she told everyone, who only smiled at her. Pit and Dylon soon came after.
"Is there room for more?" Dylon asked as he walked past to the male's changing room and wrapped a towel on his hip as he came out with the towel on.
"There's always room for one more." Aero said happily when she gestured to the large spring. Pit was busy untying his shoes. Dylon walked over to the male's changing room and changed into a towel quickly and walked out and into the giant hot spring. Gale walked out of the women's changing room soon after and sat in the pool next to Aero. "Come on, captain!" Aero said as she looked at pit and trying not to look at Alphonse.
"Okay!" Pit said as he took his sandals off and jumped in. "Cannonball!" he shouted as he jumped in the water. He resurfaced a few seconds later. "Ahh. I'm feelin' the healin'" he said making everyone giggle. "Well, is everyone here?" Pit asked his class.
"Yep." Night Wing said as he looked at everyone.
"Good! Here, we're going to make a team building excercise!" Pit said as he looked at his students. They all looked confused. Reapy whistled as he sat on Alphonses head. "Okay, we're going to say our names and three things that we like. For example, I'm Pit, I like flying, hot springs and ice cream." he said to his students. "Now you try!" he said. Gale spoke up.
"I'm Nightingale Fledgeling and I like Staffs, making friends and Light versus Dark." Gale said as she looked at everyone.
"I'm Dylon Hawk, I like Blades, having fun and helping everyone." he said as he stood up. Night spoke up.
"I'm Night Wing and I like Clubs, Arms and fighting Underworld enimies." Night said as he looked at everyone. Atmos stood up now, just wanting to join in.
"Hey, I'm Atmos Mordred, I like hanging out, helping out others and hot girls." he said as he looked at Gale. Suddenly Reapy flew over and bonked him on the head with the butt of his scythe. "Ow! What the heck Alphonse?" he asked his older brother. He shrugged in a way of saying, "I don't know."
"Why don't you go next Alphonse?" Pit asked him nicely.
"H-h-hi... I'm Al...Alphonse Mordred... I like my pet Reapette, playing my harp and..." he said, blushing.
"And what?" Gale asked him, in a teasing way.
"I... I like... I like flowers." he said blushing wildly and looking into the water. Aero smiled as she hopped up.
"Hi! I'm Aero Hawk! I like playing around, making friends and..." she began.
"Alphonse?" Atmos interrupted as he added him in her list of likes, giggling. She began blushing wildly as she lowered herself in the water so only her eyes could be seen. Alphonse noticed her reaction and lightly blushed. The next five minutes was filled with silence. Gale looked at her hands.
"Hey Pit? I'm absorbing too much water in my skin. Can we all get out already?" she asked him.
"Okay." he said as he and everyone else got out. He slipped on his shoes as the four other males went to change back into their clothes. The boys began changing as Al covered his eyes and looked away. Once they were all changed they left Alphonse so he could change. A minute later, he came running out in his white toga with his black toga over it.
"Well that was fast." Atmos said as he petted his brother's head as Reapy flew alongside him. "So what now, Pit?" he asked the angel.
"I don't know." Pit said just before the bell for dinner rang. "OOH! Dinnertime!" he said as he looked at everyone. Everyone but Alphonse was excited. Pit ran off, and most of the angels ran behind him, leaving Alphonse, Atmos and Aero behind.
Lukas: What's so funny?
Howl: I just realized their names can make a battery, Triple A batteries! *Still laughing*
"So, I'ma go, and give you two lovebirds some alone time, bye!" Atmos said as he darted off towards the mess hall. Aero was blushing.
"A-Al?" she asked him. He turned to her.
"Yes, Aero?" he asked her. She blushed even more as they made eye contact.
"D-do you know how to get to the mess hall?" she asked as her wings covered her face to hide her blush.
"Um, I don't know..." Alphonse said just before his actual blue eye flashed red. "What? Do I have to hold your hand through everything, girly?" he asked in a rather rude manner, just before his eye flashed back to blue.
"Y-yes?" she asked him, blushing wildly. He lightly blushed as he took her left hand with his right as Reapy sat on his head. "O-okay." she said looking away from him. He silently led her to the mess hall as they stood in front of the doors. He let go of her hand and opened the door for her.
"Ladies first?" he asked.
"Why thank you, young sir." she said blushing and giggling. She walked in, soon followed by Al. Tonight was hamburgers for dinner. Alphonse and Aero walked over and got their burgers and walked over to sit by Pit and their class.
"Hey! What took you so long?" Pit asked looking up from his burger. Alphonse just stared at his burger like it was filled with poison. "Alphonse? What's wrong?" Pit asked his student.
"Um... I'm a vegitarian... and I don't like to eat meat... can I have your salad for my burger?" Alphonse asked his captain. Pit's eyes brightened.
"Sure!" he said as he finished his burger and traded plates with him as Al scooped the salad from Pit's plate and onto his as he gave him his burger. Alphonse looked around.
"Hey, where's my fork?" Alphonse said just before crawling under the table to find it. He found it and got out from under the table. "Aero, can you watch my plate and make sure no one eats from it while I go wash my fork?" he asked politely.
"Sure, but hurry back!" she said as she wiped the ketcup off of her mouth from the burger. He bowed and walked towards the kitchen. Finding the sink, he realized that the kitchen was empty, only he was in there.
"Huh, must be on break." he said as he washed his fork off. He dried it on a towel and looked back outside. Noticing Aero and the group were waiting for him. "Hey, we should steal some ice cream." the voice in his head said to him. "No, shut up... I'm sorry, I didn't mean to!" he apologized to himself. "Whatever, just grab the ice cream after dinner." the voice said as he walked out. He walked over to his seat next to Aero and started eating his salad, closing his mouth as he chewed and wiping his mouth with his napkin after every bite. Everyone except Alphonse, Aero and Gale didn't eat their vegetables. Alphonse suddenly stood up and grabbed everyones plate.
"Alphonse, you don't have to do this." Pit said as Reapy flew over and grabbed his plate.
"I don't mind, it helps me think." Alphonse said as he and Reapy put their dishes in the sink and washed them. "Go! Grab the Ice Cream!" the voice told him. He ignored it and it grew angered. "Fine! It's my turn anyway!" it said as his true blue eye became red and he went and took the ice cream.
Lukas: Meanwhile with Pit and the rest of the class...
"Where's Alphonse?" Pit said as he looked for the student. Alphonse suddenly came running holding Ice cream, cones, choclate syrup, bowls for ice cream, and sprinkles. "Whoa! Where'd you get this?" Pit questioned. Alphonse was tricked into this by the voice and was put into this predicament with a new memmory.
"This is my secret stash, I was saving it for our class." Alphonse said, truly believing this. Everyone's eyes brightened.
"Thanks Al!" everyone said to him.
"Why don't we all go to my room and eat it?" Alphonse asked them as he handed them the stuff to hold as he handed Reapy a box of chocloate chip cookies. Reapy squeaked, fanboying on cookies. Everyone followed him to his room, which was quite tidy, had many books on the shelves and a balcony, big enough for a party.
"Whoa. How's you get this?" Night asked him.
"I made most of it, when I came here." Alphonse admitted. "So, grab a seat, grab some ice cream and just relax." Alphonse said as he stood up. Everyone enjoyed themselves and ate ice cream for the next hour or so, then went back to their own rooms. Alphonse sat by the balcony with Reapy on his head with Pit sitting next to him.
"That was really nice of you, Alphonse." Pit said, smiling at his student. Al looked up at the taller angel with a sad face.
"C-captain Pit?" he asked him.
"Yes?" He asked the boy with the Reapette.
"C-can I tell you something? It's something I've never even told Lady Palutena." Alphonse said holding his knees.
"What is it, Al?" Pit asked him.
"T-there's always this voice in the back of my head, he's always telling me to do wrong... he's always waiting there, for the chance I slip up." Alphonse said with fear in his eyes. "H-he says that once I let my guard down, he's going to kill everyone." Alphonse said crying. "My left eye turns red, when he takes over. And when he does... I don't know what happens!" Alphonse said as he hugged Pit, crying. Pit petted his head.
"I-it's okay Al, we'll stop him." Pit said, to console the boy.
"That's the reason I'm always quiet... I'm afraid that if I find happiness, he'll take control of me." Alphonse said, shaking. "When I was five, there was this girl I really liked, she was the prettiest girl at the school." Alphonse said to Pit. "One day, I found out that she didn't like me, she liked the guy who always bullied me..." Alphonse said, crying.
"Then what happened?" he asked the angel.
"That's when, he showed up. He said that he'd take care of everything, so I let him control me. I watched it like it was a dream. The next morning, I woke up in a puddle of blood, the boy who hurt me was dead, and the knife was in my hand." Alphonse said. "I didn't know what to do, so I ran away, back home to my mommy and daddy. That's when I met Reapy. He refused to take the boy's soul and his master abandoned him. He ended up following me home, and I took him in." Alphonse said.
"Oh." Pit said, trying to fight back a tear. "And why are you bringing him up now?" Pit asked him.
"Once I became an angel, he began talking to me again, saying that I would be the one to lead the Reap-kin." he said as Dark Pit sat silently on the roof and listening.
"Hm, this sounds familiar, just like in these memories of the Puppet." Dark Pit said as he looked at Pit who hadn't noticed him.
"When did he say this?" Pit asked him.
"T-this morning, before class." Alphonse admitted. Pit felt a chill go up his spine.
"There's something up here." Pit said silently. "Someone should be able to know about this." he said as he stood up. "Alphonse?" Pit asked him.
"Y-yes?" he asked his captain.
"Would you like me to help you beat him?" he asked the young angel as he held out a hand to help him up. He smiled and took it.
"Yes, could you?" he asked his captain as he stood up. Pit smiled.
"It's a promise." he said as he held out his hand, and Alphonse shook it. Reapy gave a few Reapette sounds and went to cuddle with Pit. Pit smiled and petted the Reapette. "We'd better get to bed, for class in the morning." Pit said to his student. Alphonse nodded.
"Okay, then good night, Captain Pit." Alphonse said to him. Pit waved and walked out. Alphonse's eye turned red for a second. "You can come out now." he said in a rough and angered tone. Dark Pit gulped and snuck back to his room. "Hmph, thought so." he said as he laid down in his bed, and his eye turned blue again. Reapy flew over to him, as he hugged him and they dozed off.
Meanwhile in Palutena's throne room...
"This is bad, this is really really bad." she said pacing back and forth in front of her chair. "What should I do? What can I do?" she asked herself.
"Instead ask yourself this... what would your fricking father do?" she heard a voice say as she turned. She looked around and saw no one.
"Pit? Pittoo? Is that you? S-stop it, it's not funny!" she said angrily, and a bit frightened.
"Aw, what's wrong, Palutena? You were more refined ten thousand years ago." she heard the voice say as she turned. She suddenly recognized the voice.
"Lancelot." she said.
"At your service." the voice said. "Or, am I really? You see, father kept me locked up in my room since you killed him. Your big sister Medusa left me in here, the nerve of her. And mother won't let me out, she keeps calling out for her daughter, have you told..." he began.
"I'll never tell her, she doesn't need this kind of emotional trauma." she said as she looked around. 'I must be going insane.' she thought to herself.
"Nope, you're not. But one of your angels is, I guess what I'm saying is watch your back, trust no one, not even me." he said before not speaking.
"Lancelot? Lancelot? Lance?" she called for this unknown character. "Just what is going on here? And why do I need to tell V?" she quesioned herself aloud. "Maybe tomorrow, I can have Pit and his class take a trip there." Palutena said before walking to her bedroom. Little did she know, an all out war would soon begin, that would cause casualties for all sides.
