PrologueAs he opened his eyes, the world opened around him.
He could see the vast crystal expanse around him, light making the walls and pillars around him shine in many colors. His body remained untouched by the colored lights, however, as the light ultimately remained just the same as what people could see, and no more than that. His scarves flapped behind him, despite the lack of actual wind to push them, and he felt the chill in his exposed arms and legs from the cave's temperature. His body remained untouched by the colors projected by the crystals, as the light managed to be uniform despite the intense alterations it went through. Fitting, considering where he was.
Slowly, the sound of footsteps filled the area, as well as what at first seemed to be formless shadows taking their place around him. The closer they were, the stronger their forms looked, but it was hard to tell just what each one was. Still, he did not look worried. In fact, as he tiptappered the solid, stone-like floor with the tip of his left boot, he looked almost relaxed, his gray eyes focused on the form ahead of him, some of his gray hair having brushed past just enough to hide them briefly.
His tongue clicked in his mouth, as he took on a stance more suitable for battle. The pearl chain hanging from his neck, barely visible, was starting to glow with the five colors its stones were colored in, as he considered his options. This many foes would take a significant amount of resources to defeat, that was true, and the most important part was taking the first step. The air around him started to glow faint as he focused his own power, aware that once he made the first move, it would immediately start a mess nastier than his hairstyle.
Just as he wanted. It wasn't fun if it was going to be easy, now was it?
â€” Hyhyhyâ€¦! Ya guys're all ready to take me down, aren't ya?
As always, some humor, along with that particularly annoying laugh of his. It wasn't easy to simultaneously talk down his opponents and yet, encourage them so they'd do even better, but there he was. His hands were twitching within their gloves, as he prepared to call in his own weapon. Whatever came after that was completely out of his control, as he knew he would be taxed to his very limits.
And that was the best part of it all, as his fingers tightened. In here, he could only hold back as much as he wanted. And if he wanted to show offâ€¦
â€” Well, I hope ya all brought all yor luck, cuz I'm gonna make my own!
â€¦then the only way to stop him would be by stopping him!
