Light seeps through the cracks in the walls and refracts through the stained glass windows, the church building which has housed Quatro Cerberus for a few years now truly reflects the kind of people that it houses: Dark, rotting, with little light illuminating the area. The guild has many members, but only a few are within the building at a time, using it as a retreat when they need a place to hide.
But with the recent death of the previous guild master, William Pale, room for a new master has risen up. His younger brother, Sovereign Pale has taken the mantle as leader of the hellhounds and wishes to ‘correct’ the people of this guild. Some question his power and motives, as he had always been the more cheerier soul amidst the murderers and thieves, so why would he think he could lead them?
It was simple, he would simply show them.
Footsteps echoed as he made his way down the steps from the balcony, his finger running across the banister. He glanced over at the clusters of his gathered members, watching him with suspicious eyes as they shuffled uncomfortably. Sovereign grinned, a wicked smile that looked only the more sinister since the rest of his face was covered by a bronze mask.
There were whispers amongst the people below, nervous and mocking remarks.
“He’s just a kid.”“The pup doesn’t know what he’s doing.”“There’s no place for us in this guild with him leading us.”
Sovereign tilted his head down, smiling even more. For although he was the other side of the church, he heard every word. Or rather, the other ones did.
Figures stepped out from the shadows, revealing themselves from all over the church. It was Sovereign, or rather, his duplicates. They’d lean in to the various groups, and in perfect unison their voice would boom in a whisper.“I heard that.”
Like a mirror image moving at the same time, they’d each reach out and grab whoever spoke, ramming their heads hard onto a table or wall, or any other nearby solid object. It was quick and strong, surprising everyone in the room. Members cursed and retaliated, only to find they had vanished once more.
Up on the stairs, Sovereign giggled like a child, his voice innocent and smooth, “Now, now, you don’t want to talk bad about me already do you? At least give me a chance.” He took a few more steps down, tapping his chin and leaning strangely over the banister.
“I’m your new guild master. End of. Unlike my brother, my mind is still intact, and I am fully aware of all your true intentions of joining this guild. Murder, robbery, harassment, vandalism, just a few things off the list of reasons why you sit in this building now.” Sovereign maintained his smile, and started waving his finger around at everyone. “His death hurt us, me most of all. But just because we lost to a cat doesn’t mean we back away. If you wish to carry on doing what you do, then be bloody discreet about it. I will keep my eyes on all of you, and bring some kind of order to the mess this guild has become.”
Sovereign spoke the truth, and although he kept it discreet of what he was trying to say, he hoped they had some kind of understanding of what he truly meant. He didn’t want to take away what was given to these people, he didn’t want to abolish the reason most were here in the first place. But at the same time, he doesn’t want to be the bad guy, he wants to be the one who’s trying to restore balance in this community. If he could show the other guilds and factions that Quatro Cerberus was just as good as everyone else, yet still wreak havoc in the shadows without them knowing, then that was enough for him.
These people were ruthless and powerful, all they lacked was a smart mind and control to help them better their strengths and focus on the important matters. Petty crimes were beneath these people, and it would be Sovereign to help them reach much bigger goals.
