KurtzPel: <Bringer of Chaos>
Navigating through the forest, Geralt hurried towards his home ignoring the need for stealth as he heard the screams of the villagers in the distance he knew time was no longer on his side.
'Please, be safe!'
Seeing his home in the distance, he saw that the lights were still on and delighted that they were safe. Nevertheless, this didn't change anything at all with the impending destruction soon to come before them.
Crim was reviewing intelligence reports back in Eltheca then as a squire came in presenting new information her eyes flashed with cause for concern immediately leaving the room donning her uniform. Soon after, her karma activated which suspended time briefly as her sight illuminated her surroundings in a familiar magenta as her irises gently embraced a brilliant gold laces with symbols as if a message was being sent directly to her.
'Of all times?! Why now?!'
Cycling through her vision, she saw Geralt encounter the Bellatos Battalion at Selbus then witnessing the death of the village elder to which she grimaced at the bloodshed. But what came afterwards was infuriated her even more.
'Helmut, but why? He was supposed to be off engaged with Norbas according to reports but to Selbus of all places, he must have had a detour assigned to him last minute.'
However, despite being wroth with anger towards Bellatos there was more to be seen. A boy, thrust into the unknown world and a girl, distraught with the truth of this world. Nevertheless, their fates were intertwined as Crim was alarmed at their eyes emitting a faint glow as if a dormant power resided within, waiting to be awakened.
'It... cannot be?!'
As if grasping towards the prize the vision ended, leaving her fatigued only slightly from the experience.
"I need... to tell... everyone!"
Crim, then quickly made her way towards the conference room bursting in to which everyone turned their heads towards her. Acknowledging them she then quickly strode towards the map and slammed her hand against Selbus in the Venia Area.
"Selbus is currently under attack by General Helmut! Geralt just sent this report in so time is not on our side, we must move immediately!"
Standing up, a young man walked up towards the map then looking at the location in question.
"Crim, General Helmut isn't someone we can just "take on" with ease."
"Yeah, our resources are also thin enough as it is. So why must we move now?"
The young girl adjusting her glasses stated this then looking at the map in question as if analyzing the possibility of such an effort.
"I'm certain you have a good reason to suddenly fight Bellatos in the open Crim?"
"I do, it's because I saw something there that we need to see for ourselves."
Ensher immediately stood up in response as papers scattered around her while the young man sighed in response to this then directing his attention towards Crim.
"Yes! Just as soon as I read the report my karma activated, we have to go now!"
Crim, puffing her cheeks stomped the floor to emphasize her point.
"Ensher, I'll go with Crim to satisfy her curiosity. There's no need for you to come."
"You're right Ethan, thanks for watching out for me."
Ethan, still skeptical about Crim's Vision reluctantly decided to take matters into his own hands.
"Right then Crim, let's get going."
"Wait for me!"
Saluting Ensher, Ethan began to walk out towards the teleportation gate with Crim trailing behind as if a father was watching over a child.
"Stay safe you two."
Geralt's Cottage, Venia Forest Area
A little boy was carefully walking down the stairs with a little girl waiting down below smiling at him.
"You can do it Luke!"
Luke smiled as he then leapt into her arms as a woman finished cleaning their dishes from supper, every plate had their names inscribed as she finished drying off a plate with "Bridget" she dried her hands then began walking towards the living room seeing her children's moment of celebration.
"Maria, Luke it's storytime."
Heeding their mother's call, Maria set Luke down as he sped towards her with Maria trailing behind laughing as Luke grabbed a black book emblazoned with the symbol of the Bellatos faith from the shelf and happily brought it to their mother.
"Thank you, Luke."
"Mother, what are we going to read tonight?"
Opening the book, their mother began leafing through the pages stopping at the family list then brushing against Geralt's name above hers then continued towards the passage to read for the evening.
"Tonight, we'll be reading about The Miracle of Bell."
Laughing lightly, their mother began to read from the book with Luke tracing along with her curiously as Maria happily listened.
"The land of Asteria is faced with the threat of annihilation by the evil forces who have brought chaos throughout the world. On the Day of Judgement, the Savior sent by Bell descends from the sky and gives one last hope to the devastated land.
Luke, confused about what his mother spoke of soon fell asleep leaving Maria to readily enjoy this.
"When the forsaken people come together with the Savior, the land will have eternal peace. Everyone called this prophecy, The Miracle of Bell."
Geralt, suddenly heard the sounds of an army marching along towards his home.
'Blast it all!'
As the army neared the cottage Geralt saw Helmut raise a hand and quickly raced for the back entrance. Opening the door he saw his family, all sitting there peacefully as if another night passed by them. Immediately seeing his wife's face and daughter turned towards him he knew he couldn't spare another moment.
"Everyone! Look out!"
Maria was happy to see her father and began to wave towards him as a brilliant light reflected off her eyes then being immediately held by her mother her vision went dark as traces of blue light surrounded each of them with the cottage suddenly blown apart by the pulsating rays of light.
Helmut, surveying the area sees Geralt clutching his family in his arms bearing a look of wrath in response to what has happened.
Helmut, then reached out towards him then clenching his fist pulled back as if expecting a response.
Geralt maintaining focus on his attackers noticed Luke was missing as he clutched his wife and daughter in his arms.
'Luke, you have to get away from here...'
"Honey, take our daughter and go...!"
Suddenly, he was grabbed by an invisible force as he was pulled through the debris he could only see a picture of his family, together then feeling a firm grip blinding him he hung helplessly as a voice boomed amidst the raging flames.
"Are you the one secretly in league with KurtzPel?!"
"He is the one! He's a follower of KurtzPel, the bringer of chaos into the world!"
"Punish the heretic! Punish the heretic!"
Alongside Helmut's forced interrogation Geralt despaired over his fellow villagers betraying him as well. He had lost, he had nothing to say but could only worry about his family and his own life.
"I...I don't know what you are talking about. Oh, please..."
"How dare you beg for your life! You filthy apostate!"
Trying to say whatever he could, Geralt's plea for mercy was immediately cast aside by Helmut's dissatisfaction with this supposed apostate of Bellatos. Then, infusing the divine energies of Bell he blasted Geralt away with his wife gasping after him as his blood clearly displayed his suffering.
"No! Stay Away!"
Writhing in pain Geralt held his ground though blinded by Helmut's attack he struggled to rise as Helmut sighed.
"Purify this place."
The soldiers, acknowledging his orders took their position as Geralt winced at the incoming attack he braced himself for what was to come. The arrows soared from their crossbows supposedly hitting their targets but were met with a barrier impeding their intended result.
Helmut's eyes widened in surprise as he expected a more dissatisfying ending to this facade of a mission.
Helmut could only smile as his soldiers immediately began their search for Geralt's whereabouts.
