The war on Muroto started when the Lord of Darkness tried to seek the power over all the elements. Muroto was a peaceful planet in the Milky Way Galaxy because no one had ever discovered the planet. It lays millions of miles beyond Pluto, so it was easily missed as a planet of the Milky Way. Muroto was a planet that tapped into the power of the six main elements: fire, water, earth, air, light, and darkness. Each element had a special region on Muroto where certain Murotons could study and practice the power of their choosing, but they could only do that if they where chosen by the Lord of that element.
The six Elemental Lords were masters of the elements and possessed extraordinary skills that would make anyone and anything tremble before them. But before the Lords had even existed, they were bonded with the six Elemental Crystals that allowed them power over the elements, so they would be capable of using them. That's why the Lord of Darkness wants all six of the crystals to destroy Muroto and take over the Galaxy. If it was only that easy! The King summoned all the Lords and the apprentice Murotons to band together and fight the Darkness.
Rigor, the Lord of Darkness, had an army of his fellow darkness apprentices, and had allied the Genets. They were a race of humanoid dragons that are as ruthless as cannibals. The Genets had no mercy for anyone: children, adults, and the elderly. Rigor had control over them, making him the Genets' Lord. The first wave of the Genets came at the strike of midnight six months ago and the war has been raging ever since. Many brave warriors on both sides have fallen or have be injured.
The King, Ryfer, stood in his quarters starring out at the starry sky. He watched as flashes of light lit up the night to show thousands of Genets murderously flying around. Then, towards the mountains a massive plume of fire erupted, sending smoke billowing into the sky. Ryfer knew that deep down he was losing his faith in his mighty warriors. The Genets kept swarming one after another. There was a sigh from behind that snapped his head around.
His wife, Silara, lay on bed starring up at him. When their eyes met, Ryfer strolled over to the bed and gently sat down. Ryfer pulled Silara in close and kissed her. A warm feeling washed over him and he felt relief again. No matter how dark the times were, Silara always had no worries because she was a master of light. The light is the positive side in everything. The Lady of Light taught all her apprentices and warriors to believe in the light that is inside their hearts and to never let it burn out.
Ryfer released his lips and stroked Silara's hair as she fondled his face. They got lost in each others' eyes until there was a knock at the door. They jerked their heads to the door as the knob raddled. “Who could it be?” Ryfer thought “There should be no one inside the castle.” The door burst open and Silara encased the intruder in a box of light. Ryfer summoned fire around his hands and tip-toed toward the light box. Silara backed up towards the window, opened it, and readied herself for an escape. As Ryfer held his hands out, an unseen force knocked him back into Silara.
The box of light shattered and their son, Rhaos, no older than fourteen, entered the quarters. He was studying to be a warrior of air.
“What was that for Mom?” he asked stunned
Silara just gaped at her son.
“Rhaos, it was an accident.” His dad said, “Just be lucky that was all that happened to you. I almost turned you to ashes.”
Rhaos wasn't happy about anything that just happened. Ryfer knelt beside his son and rubbed his shoulder and with that everything went bad. The room got cold, dark, and eerie. Ryfer gathered his family into the center of the room. He walked towards the door and came to a stop when a hand gripped his. He looked down and Rhaos was grinning at him.
“Dad, I want to come.” Rhaos said as he started walking on.
“Rhaos, you can't. I'm doing what I should have done awhile back.”
Silara walked up beside Ryfer and she nodded, “Let him go, you might need him to do it.”
“He's to young,” Ryfer thought to himself, “This is exactly what I wanted to keep him away from”. Ryfer understood though what Silara meant. She was more skilled in her element than Rhaos was and she would stand a better chance if anyone attacked. He gave Silara one last kiss, ran to catch up to Rhaos, and headed to the Chamber.
The stairs descending to the Chamber was steep and slippery. Rhaos wasn't paying attention and his foot slipped, but his father caught him before he could go bouncing away. The ground shook under them viciously and stopped them in their tracks. Rhaos stumbled and slid down a few stairs on his rear. Before Ryfer began walking, something burst through the wall between them breaking away the stairs. The thing that broke through the wall looked to Ryfer like a tentacle of darkness.
The tentacle whipped towards Ryfer sending him flying through the ceiling, or at least he thought. He looked to find Rhaos moving his hands in different motions. Rhaos had caught his father and gently laid him down.
“Rhaos, I'll handle this!” he barked, “Go to the crystals and repeat what I say: "Mit diesen worten, ich befehle die Elemente zu einer schwester Planeten geschickt werden, wo ich weiß nur, den verbleib!”
Rhaos twisted his fingers into his temples as if he was drilling the incantation into his brain. His mouth mouthed the words and once he looked like he had it he ran the rest of the way and left his father worrying if he could handle using that much power to send the crystals to another planet. Ryfer shook away his worry and focused on the problem at hand. Fire shot from his palms to restrict the tentacle.
It shot back and Ryfer leaped through the gaping hole. He sailed through the air and dropped down in front of the source of all evil.
“Rigor.” Ryfer said softly
There were about six tentacles behind him that looked like tails. “I have come for the crystals.”
At that moment a column of light shot up into the sky that parted clouds that were rolling in. Ryfer smirked and begun to laugh. Rigor starred up at the light as six different colored streaks flew into the sky.
“Rhaos, I'm proud of you. You'll make a fine elemental.” Ryfer said, “You're to late, Rigor. The crystals are not on Muroto anymore.”
“Oh, I figured that. So that's why I sent some Genets to spy on your son.”
Ryfer's heart sank as a Genet swooped down holding onto a wailing Rhaos by the neck. His legs began to move before his mind could think of a plan. One of the tentacles headed for Ryfer, but arched up into the air before it made contact. Ryfer watched as it came hurdling down at him. The tentacle came down with such speed that as Ryfer jumped out of the way, it sent a shock wave through the air and Ryfer twisted in midair.
“Now boy, tell me where you sent the crystals and I'll spare you father's life.” When he finished, the tentacle loomed over Ryfer's head. “All you have to do is tell me.”
Rhaos's eyes darted from Rigor to his father trying to make a decision and then he spoke, “Earth.”
Rigor smiled, then said something so shocking Ryfer almost blacked out: “I will call off the war. Thank you Rhaos.”
With a flick of Rigor's wrist, the Genet that held Rhaos shimmered away. As did all the other Genets on the entire planet. Rhaos ran over to his father and gave him a helping hand. When Ryfer looked into his son's eyes, he saw regret and disappointment. Ryfer knew Rhaos felt bad for telling Rigor where the Elemental Crystal went, but he didn't have a choice, did he? Ryfer just left it at that, but almost had a heart attack. “Where's Silara?”
Rigor shrugged his shoulders and said, “Gone. She's not here anymore. Some place you'll never find her.”
Ryfer and Rhaos's rage built until they shot fire and wind at Rigor, but a tentacle flew at them, breaking their attacks. The tentacle wrapped around Rhaos, pulling him inches away from Rigor. Rigor's eyes starred at Ryfer with such hatred, he knew this wasn't good. Ryfer jumped into the air and was stopped by a tentacle around his waist. The tentacle that held Rhaos turned him to face his father. Tears ran down his cheek, his face was red, and arms flailing.
“This is what happens when I do something good, but people react badly towards it!” Rigor spat, “I hope your son isn't scared of the Hell Raisers!”
The tentacle jerked left then right and Rhaos fell to the ground. The tears, the cries, and all his movement had ended. Rhaos's empty eyes looked up at his father and one last tear ran down his face as if asking Ryfer, “Why dad?”
“He was a weakling anyway. I did him a favor.” Rigor laughed, “And now, I'm hoping you don't try to stop me anymore. This is the last time I hope to see you.” With that, shadows engulfed Rigor and he was gone. Ryfer fell to the ground crying and yelling. His wife was missing and his son was dead. “Why should I go on?” He thought, “The war is over and the crystals are gone to Earth...”Ryfer stood up, walked over to his son, closed his eyes, and lit him on fire.
“May the Hell Raisers have peace on your soul, Rhaos.” Ryfer whispered, “I hope you'll be watching as I bring Rigor down. This will end on Earth.” Ryfer walked towards his castles as he was engulfed in flames and sputtered out.
