#1: Camp of The Grey Moon
Zaren leaned on a branch as he gazed out at the Grey Moon camp and snarled. He and a group of volenteers of Sparen Villige had fallowed the Grey Moon Bandits to there camp and now Zaren looked about for Liezal Blue-Feather, the female gryphon that they had kiddnapped and the one girl Zaren had become to love. His eyes narrowed as he saw a large male gryphon walk into a wooden shack and push a young gryphoness with dark blue feathers, she had a muzzle over her face so Zaren couldent see her face but he was sure it was Liezal. He looked at Harren Night-Falcon and whispered "found her, right side of the camp get ready to charge." Harren nodded, she was a young gryphon of 15 and had green feathers and one of her ears were missing from the Battle of Battlespike which had only occered two days ago. She had a bandege wrapped around what was left of her right ear and she envyus of Liezal for having Zaren as a boyfriend. Harren figured she could gain Zaren's love by helping him save Liezal and he would painfully dump her like a bad habit. Harren looked at Zaren and whispered "you dont have to save her, after all she is a Blue-Feather and they cant be trusted. But we Night-Falcon's have never gone back on our words." Zaren glared at her and said sharply "just launch the damn attack and shut your beak!" Harren rolled her eyes and screeched, the gryphons aidding Zaren charged out at the Grey Moon's and caught them by surprise. Zaren jumped down on one of the enemy gryphons and stabbed his talons into his neck and ripped a good chuck of meat out and endded his life in mere moments. Then he dodged and tripped another gryphon and rushed thwords the gryphoness with the muzzle, he tackled the gryphon guarding her and pecked his eyes out and stomped in his ribs. Zaren walked up to the gryphoness and slowly removed the muzzle and he smiled glad to see the blue eyes of Liezal. She nuzzled him and said "bought time you showed up." Zaren laughed and said "cant run a gryphon nation without the leader can we?" Liezal gasped and asked "what do you mean? I'm not the leader of anything!" Zaren rolled his eyes and replyed "the Sparen gryphons agreed to fallow your orders and they hope to forge a path to nationhood in any case they want Syutha to be ruled under the Blue-Feather banner!" Liezal gasped "Zaren! You know I dont want anything to do with leading!" He nodded and said "thats what I told them but they wont listen." Then Harren walked up to Zaren and said "mission complete, we wiped the Grey Moon out as far as I can tell none escaped. Will you hurrie up and dump her now so you can marrie me?" Liezal looked at her and glared "umm mind repeatting that?" Harren looked at Liezal with an evil look and said in a smart tone "you come from a bloodline of filth, unlike me I come from a bloodline of wealth." Zaren sighed and stood in between the two and said "I'm with Liezal, Harren return to your dutys now! There is nothing between us and there never could be." Harren growled and turned to walk away, but then she stopped and looked at Zaren "you will come around, when all the treasure you ever had is in her greedy little paws. Oh yes! You will be mine yet!" Then she walked away and Liezal looked at Zaren and asked "her last name NOW!" Zaren sighed and said "Night-Falcon, why is it important?" Liezal grinned and looked at the stars "I should have known, my father must have ripped her father off which would explain why she hates me. Oh well Night-Falcons are cowards and they always will be." Then Liezal embraced him and smiled warmly "I'm glad you came for me, Matelath was an old friend of my father and I guess he has an obsession with my mother. Since she is dead he went for me instead, but if what the Night-Falcon said in true then he is dead too." Zaren and Liezal's lips touched and they kissed for a long while until Liezal moved away and said "our deal remember?" Zaren rolled his eyes and stepped forward and kissed her again and said "I dont care about out deal any more." Liezal rolled her eyes and asked "so how many gryphons are really with us now?" Zaren and Liezal walked side by side as Zaren said "we have 300 stronge plus 1000 joined with us along the way so I would say about 1300." Liezal nodded and said with a dull look "we will need far more then that, make Night-Falcon useful there is another gryphon villige south of here. Send her there and get more gryphons to join the fight." Zaren looked at her like she was crazy and asked "why?" Liezal looked at him and said "dont you see Zaren? We need as many fighters as we can find Soulan is counting on us." Zaren nearly let out a laugh and replyed in a deep tone "Soulan thinks were MIA, I dont think she's counting on anything right now." Liezal mummered something but Zaren dident hear her and she said "fine, then it's off to Sanity City to tell Soulan that the gryphons are ready to take back what belongs to them." Zaren agreed and nodded then said "you know, Dark-Liezal changed you. You were so sure of yourself when we first met a month ago but now you seem worried for yourself and for those around you." Liezal sighed and looked into his eyes and said "yes, Dark-Liezal has left me with a deep scar that will never heal. Please Zaren dont bring her up again." Zaren took it more as a threat and spat on the ground "what! So your just going to try and forget about her! Remembering is the only way you can insure it will never happen again." Liezal whirled on him in anger and said "you dont know what I went threw Zaren! You or anyone could never understand what true pain feels like, now leave me be!" Then Liezal stomped off in anger and Zaren walked the other way with a sad look on his face and whispered "your right I could never understand, because you wont let me understand Liezal. I'm sorry for loving you then."

#2: Assulting Fort Blaze
Hearuth flapped his wings and wipped the soot out of his eyes, he hated flying this close to Mt. Battlespike when it was belching ashes. He understood what it ment too, the volcano had built up too much presure and was ready to blow it's top off. Lava would flow down the mountain and the many gryphon villiges near it would be destroyed. He could smell blood in the air as he dodged another ball of fire and looked down at the battlefield, the humans had said they could push the Golden Talon's orc army back into Fort Blaze which they did. But now hundreds of orcs were firing at him and Sharra with catapults and crossbows. Hearuth looked over at Sharra his wife to be and said "this is foolish, what was Soulan thinking trusting humans to siege Fort Blaze. If mother and the Deepruin had just come threw and bombed the place we wouldent be here." Sharra looked at him and nodded with agreement and replyed "good thing the orcs are bad shots or we would be down there with the humans fighting melee. Lets locate the Pheonix Commander and you can put a few fire balls in him okay?" Hearuth couldent help chuckling and he nodded, the Sharra dropped and threw seeds down on the catapults and vines broke threw the stone roof and ripped the wooden catapults apart. Then the roof of Fort Blaze shattered and hundreds of orcs fell to there deaths, Sharra grinned and threw another seed at the gate and a plant golem rose from the ground and rammed the gate. Sharra then noticed a red flash off in the distance and said "dammit he made a fly for it! Oh well lets finish up here." Then she dove down on the orc army and breathed acid on them melting there faces and even turning some orcs into little puddles of blood and bone. Hearuth rolled his eyes and fire formed on his wings he reared up and gave a mighty flap and the fire shot forth in two large streams and caused even more damege to the army. Sharra looked at him and frowned "show off!" Hearuth laughed and dodged another arrow with grace, then dove and used the spike at the end of his wing to slice threw the army. Orcs dove for cover as Hearuth broke there ranks up, then he smiled as Captain Lizzy pressed the charge with her army. She was a human that Hearuth respected due to the fact that unlike most humans she was able to come to an understanding about dragons and even study dragon culture so she could act as an embessy. She was now leading the hundreds of humans who had took up arms agenst the Golden Talon and served the Firehearts. Hearuth grinned as her troops stormed the fort and was soon raising the Fireheart banner over the area, another victory had come and Hearuth scanned the area for any signs of reinforcements. He gasped as he saw something strange, at first he thought it was a cluster of dragons. But they were silver, not that there wernt any silver dragons but it was strange to see another clan when the Deepruin were the only ones who knew about Syutha. Then he gasped as he saw steam rising off the wings of the creatures and he noticed cogs and wheels moving within the see threw wings. Hearuth gasped at what he was looking at, they were dragons alright but not living dragons! They were Robotic Dragons with gattling guns mounted on there shoulders and painted on there wings was the symble of the Golden Talon! They stopped and hovered not far from Hearuth and Sharra and a large one moved from the cover of the others and said in a deep yet familar voice "attack program online, target locked on, activating missile breath." Then it's mouth opened and a cannon appered and Hearuth gasped as it fired three missiles pointed right at him. He dodged and weaved his way threw them and heard them explode off in the distince and growled. Then he noticed the golden head of the leader and frowned "it cant be . . ." But even as he said the words he knew it was true, Sonyca was back and she was more powerful then ever before!" Hearuth hovered over to Sonyca and asked "sister?" She cocked her head and replyed in a confused voice "my body is gone Hearuth, and I cant control this one. This is not what I wanted, power is the most wonderful thing I have ever felt. But this . . . no this is enslavement to life! I am a monstrosity now, nolonger am I Dragutha now I am a weapon for the Golden Talon. I beg you Hearuth as my younger brother I beg you, please kill me." Hearuth nodded and fired began to form in his maw as he allowed his elemental energy to flow, then he shot forth a stream of flames. It engulfed Sonyca and he was sure she was now ash, but when the smoke cleared a green shield appered around Sonyca's robotic body and the gattling guns began to rotate. Then all at once they fired, bullets ripped threw Hearuth and soon he found himself falling out of the sky. Sharra flew down after him tucking in her wings and legs, she grabbed his body and sat him on the ground and said "Hearuth what happened up there?" Hearuth looked at her with saddness and said "Sonyca . . ." Sharra looked up at the robot dragons and watched with horror as they attacked the humans with missiles and gattling guns. Sharra growled and took to the air and bit into the wing of a robotic dragon and teeth tore threw wire and she ripped the wing clean off and watched with satsfaction as the monster fell to the dirt. Then she turned to another and breather acid on it, the green shield went up and she charged threw it and used her claws to finish her target. All the while Sonyca watched and mummered "this is what the Para's have done to me for my lust for power, I cannot beg for there forgivness but I will prey that I am killed this battle." Sharra slammed her foot into another mechanical dragon's skull and watched sparks dance around her foot. She then gasped in pain as a buzz saw ripped threw her left wing and she fell to the ground hurt. The buzz saw returned to the one who had fired it and reattached to the machanical dragon's tail. Hearuth looked up at the robots and said "we never stood a chance not the two of us anyway!" Then a airship floated into view and Hearuth saw pheonix-born standing on the deck of the airship and growled "Golden Talon basturds!" Then a rope dropped down and a human dropped down, he had grey hair, a white lab coat and he held in his had a tazor. I walked up to Sharra and zapped her, she screamed as loud as her lungs could allow and Hearuth roared with fury. Then a bird-like foot came down on his chest and he gazed at Kiren and said "you will pay for this!" Kiren laughed and cracked his neck "I would worrie more about yourself dragon, Dr. Sand is your master now!" Then he let out a screech of surprise as he was peppered with ice shards and dragons began flying around everywhere attacking the pheonix-born and mechanical dragons. Kiren got to his feet and bellowed "RETREAT!" Then he took to the air and the docter and grabbed onto his rope and was sent up to his airship, the remaining mechanical dragons landed on the airship and it took off to the west. Skiree appered next to Hearuth and she said "slow your breathing Hearuth, your body is in shock." Hearuth nodded but looked at Sharra with worrie as her eyes flickered open and closed. Another dragon was tending to her but it seemed he was in a rush, Skiree placed her hands on one of Hearuth's bleeding wounds and applyed presure. He gasped but remained calm, she smiled and said slowly "your going to be alright, you are Sharra both will live yet for awhile." Then she lifted Hearuth off the ground and carried him threw the shattered walls of Fort Blaze and Skiree shouted out "Deepruin take shelter here tonight. Any remaining humans should also take cover, night is coming fast." Hearuth wezzed and said "Sharra needs more help then I, please tend to her first." Skiree smiled at him and replyed in a kind tone "that is a noble thing to say, you would make a great king. Putting others lifes in front of your own is a great way to gain respect, but also a great way to get you killed. Another medic will tend to her, I will see it I can bet the pieces of metal out of your body." Hearuth nodded but still he worried about Sharra more then anything else and he heard Skiree whisper "sleep Hearuth, I will do what I can to get the slugs out of your body. I had heard that the humans of Syutha were smarter then the ones of Lordoris, but to be able to create those things! Impressive indeed, we will need to keep our guard up next time." The Hearuth drifted off to sleep and Skiree began useing a ice shard to pick the bullets out of Hearuth's body.

#3: Defence of Fort Blaze
Hearuth lat on his back and starred at the sky, it was dark now and he was covered in bandeges. Skiree had pulled most of the bullets out of his body but a few were too far deep inside for her to remove she Hearuth would have to wait for his elemental energy to melt the metal away. He was still worried about Sharra and his body burned everytime he moved. Then he heard a twig snap and he lifted his head to see Sharra walking thwords him, her wounded wing was completely covered in bandeges and she had a single white strip around the top of her head. She layed down next to him and said "we were far too reckless today." Hearuth nodded with agreement and rested his head back down on the dirt "I know, those things could have killed us with ease. But who was that human in the lab coat?" Sharra shrugged and replyed "only the Paras know, speaking of which any news on Liezal or Zaren yet?" Hearuth sighed and returned with "not a thing, but I'm sure there both on there way to Sanity City or if not there still in the Forbidden Library." Sharra layed her head close to his shoulder and smiled "Liezal is a Para-Gryphon which makes her the rightful ruler of Syutha, Soulan already told me that once the Golden Talon is taken care of she and all the pheonix-born in her command will leave this realm and restore the Firerealm so that her race can live in peace there. Liezal and the gryphons will come into power over Sanity and it is likely a vast empire will be formed for the gryphons. But are they ready for such a thing? Think about it Hearuth we are on the eve of victory agenst the Golden Talon and the gryphons are still scattered and fighting amoung themselves." Hearuth sat up and said in a rush "they will have a hard time adapting but I think Liezal will do the right thing. Maybe mother will order us to stay in Syutha and monitor over the gryphons until we are sure they can be left alone." Sharra got to her feet and sniffed the air and said "strange I smell oil!" Hearuth sniffed the air as well and nodded "yes but from where?" Then there was an explosion and four airships meterilized out of no where. In moments the Deepruin Clan and the human army was up and ready for battle, Hearuth and Sharra counted the orcs of the ships and there were atleast 500 on each ship. Hearuth flapped his wings and said "stay in cover, I'm going to help in the fight." Sharra grabbed his tail as he was about to take off and said "your more wounded then I am! Stay down, if they come then fight but if they cower on the ships then do nothing and let Skiree take care of it." Hearuth sighed and nodded  then turned and they both walked into the court yard of the fort.

Meanwhile Skiree and a group of dragons attacked the airships intent on bringing them down. She weaved downward as a orc fired at her with a bow and baddly missed, She landed on one of the airships and attacked the large mass of orcs on deck. She fired a beam of ice from her maw and froze many orcs in moments, then she swung her tail and knocked many more off the ship and to there deaths. Skiree reared up on two feet and flapped her wings firing hundreds of ice shards into the orcs killing atleast 100. Then she jumped up and tore into the main sail of the airship and ripped the wooden mast off. There was an explosion and the ship caught fire, Skiree then saw the motor of the ship and fired on it with ice and watched it explode and the ship began to drop from the sky. It crashed into the side of a hill and Skiree was sure any orcs on board were dead or dying. Then she turned to the next ship and ordered the Deepruin to do the same, this time however the orcs were ready and they brought out cannons to fire on the dragons. Skiree gasped as the dragon next to her was shot from the sky and killed, she growled with rage and sped down at the airship and landed, useing her elemental energy she froze the entire ship and everthing on it. Then the ship began to fall, however Skiree had something diffrent planned for it and she jumped off and commanded the dragons the push the falling airship into the one next to it. They pushed as hard as they could and soon they heard the sound of wood slamming into wood and the dragons jumped back and watched as both ship went up in flames. The last two remaining ships began to turn around but Skiree opened fire with her ice shards and cut the fual lines of both ships. They leaked oil as if leaking blood and soon both ships were crashing in the distence. Skiree landed and walked over to the dragon that had taken the cannon shot. He was alive but he panted fast, he looked up at Skiree and gave her a bloodied smile "I give my life for the Deepruin my qween, please take my elemental energy as your own." Skiree nodded and placed a hand on his shoulder, there was a shift in energy and Skiree's body lite up and pulsed for a few moments. Then the dragon's eyes went cold and he was dead, Skiree let out a saddened growl and looked over at another dragon "give him a good barial, he deserved it." The dragon nodded and did as he was told, Skiree looked at the sky and noticed the sun was rising. she then muttered "from the moon we rise, from the sun we die." Then she noticed the humans captureing any living orcs and Skiree walked up to a large one who she guessed was the commander and said "who is building all these weapons? Speak orc or so help me I will rend the flesh from your pitiful body!" The orc snarled and replyed "we orcs exsist to die, for ever orc that has died today 5 more are born. Soon your dragons will be gone and we will rule over both Syutha and Lordoris!" Skiree raised up to two feet and swipped the orc to the ground and stomped his body to oblivion. Then she looked at Lizzy and said "question them to death if you have too I want to know who is building all this and I want to know where we can find him." Lizzy nodded and Skiree walked away to think.

#4: Temple of Stars
Shivery rolled her eyes and pawed the armrest of her throne impatintly. She listened to the other Para-Dragons taking back and forth about the matter of Syutha, she looked at her younger sister Airee and noticed she was not happy eather and Shivery whispered to her "if they dont choose the corse of action soon, my head's going to explode." Airee looked at Shivery and smiled shyly and replyed "atleast it's over something important, the Golden Talon have crossed the line. They are exparementing on dragons and turning them into weapons of destruction." Shivery nodded and gazed at the ceiling of the temple and said "we have a Para dealing with the problem right now is that not well?" Airee giggled and sighed "yes but Liezal does not know her full power yet, we all chipped in to make the first Para-Gryphon as ready as possible. Even Viparion helped which was kind of him given the fact that he has tryed to destroy this realm three times in a row. He even offered to protect Liezal, I think he has really changed. Or maybe he is just waiting out his time, he knows as well as us that the Golden Talon are a threat to the Realm of Light and the final Flame-Master Lazam is massing his elemental energy. For what only time will tell but I prey it's not what we think it is." Shivery bowed her head to her sister and marvaled at how wise she was, Airee was a white scaled female, covered in feathers from neck to tail. She was the Para of weather and had done a great job of creating both the gryphons and the storm maker dragons. Shivery was the ice Para, she was sky blue and frost always covered her wings, she enjoyed having her sister at her side and was married to the Para of the forests, his name was Forusta. He was now argueing with Lavatha Shivery's oldest brother and leader of the Paras. She rolled her eyes and gazed at one of Lavatha's guards, a wise fire dragon named Raptorix. She smiled at him and remembered what Raptorix had done to earn his spot at her brother's side, he had defeated Viparion and shattered the black fire across the Realm of Light. Shivery shrugged her shoulders back and said to Airee "I think it's time we said something." Then Shivery rose to her feet and said to all the other Paras "please all of you stop argueing and hear me out." All the voices of the room stopped and everyone looked at Shivery, she bowed her head to the group and said "the Golden Talon are lossing ground in Syutha, Liezal and her allies are gaining victory after victory. Why argue when we can aid them in there struggles, there are three main factions battleing the Golden Talon, the Firehearts, the Deepruin Dragons, and the Gryphons. Lets send a Para to each group and monitor each, I have aidded the Deepruin in the past so I will go to them. I think Lavatha you my brother should aid the Firehearts." Lavatha brought his hand up to rest at his chin and he bowed "as you wish Shivery." Then Shivery turned to Airee and said "and I think you should visit the Gryphon Resistance, I'm sure your guidence would be welcomed by Liezal." Airee gasped and hopped off her throne and cocked her head "but I have little experence with Syutha and what if I make a bad move?" Shivery rolled her eyes and leaned down and placed her head of Airee's shoulder and said "you wont, I trust you greatly. Liezal needs your wisdom sister, she must know the power she holds so she can use it to defeat Lazam." Airee shrugged and replyed "I guess so, but I just dont feel ready to walk with my gryphons." Shivery smiled and petted her head "your ready Airee, besides you need to get out of the Temple of Stars more." Airee nodded and walked thwords the swirling vortex at the back of the room and said "I will try my best." Then she ran threw and vanished into the vortex. Shivery looked at Lavatha and he said "if she fails Liezal could doom the realm instead of saving it." Shivery glared at Lavatha and replyed "give her a chance brother, just do your job as a Para and help the Firehearts in any way you can." Then Shivery walked over to the vortex and vanished, Lavatha growled and stomped his foot and said "Shivery really gets on my tail! I refuse to be ordered around by a pheonix, even if Soulan is trying to help the Realm of Light." Then he walked into the vortex and vanished.

#5: The Gryphon Resistance
Liezal walked at the front of the group and Zaren was right behind her, it was dawn and the sky was clear. Liezal growled with anger as they came across a river and the brige was destroyed, she stomped her foot in anger and kicked up dirt "you got to be kidding me!" Liezal paced back and forth untill Rathen a young gryphon of 8 years stepped forward and asked "how are we going to get across miss Liezal?" Liezal looked down at him and replyed "I dont know, hell I dont even know how deep the water is." Rathen nodded and walked over to the river and dipped his tail in and closed his eyes for a moment then he looked at Liezal and said with a smile "it's barely a foot deep, we can all wade across with no problem." Liezal rolled her eyes and stepped into the water and found that the child was right and she looked at him and smiled "good call Rathen." Then Liezal saw a flash of light in the other side of the river and saw a dragon welpling, she was pure white and was quite beautyful. The welpling waved at Liezal and she called out "Para of the feather! I am Airee I have come to aid you!" Liezal waded over to the welpling and asked "arnt you supposed to be in Lordoris little one." Airee rolled her eyes and replyed "I'm a Para like you Liezal, so no I can be anywhere I want to be. Now listen my older sister Shivery sent me to help you. She's helping Skiree and the Deepruin and my big brother Lavatha is helping the Firehearts. We need to end this war fast, we just learned that Lazam is a Flame Master which is like a Para only there evil." Liezal gasped and said "do you know what he plans for Syutha?" Airee shrugged and replyed "our guess is as good as yours Liezal, besides I think he wont do anything until all resistance is crushed under his talons." Liezal paced back and forth away and kicked up more dirt, then she heard splashing and looked to see Zaren wadeing across the river. She looked at Airee and said in a haste to end the talking "I guess I will have to take him down as well as Kiren then." Airee noddded with agreement and the wind picked up and she gasped "Golden Talon raiding party, flying this way!" Liezal gasped again and bellowed across the river "EVERYONE GET ACROSS NOW!" The gryphons rushed as fast as they could carrie across the river and Liezal looked at Airee and said in a spark of enlightenment "then to hell with going to Sanity, I say we just start marching to whatever hole Lazam is crawling in." Then Liezal explained to the gryphons and they all hid in a grove of bushs. Liezal wanted to throw out a surprise attack and Airee agreed that it would be wise to do as much damege to the Golden Talon as possible. Liezal and a hand full of volenteers stayed out in the open and the rest of the gryphons and Airee that would be attacking stayed in hidding. They heard the wingbeats of pheonix-born before long and one of the pheonix spotted them and landed to investigate. He walked up to Liezal and asked "where are you traveling to, dont you know there's a war going on. One that will end in your race's destruction, if I were you I would be saying my final good byes." Liezal let out a snort of anger and replyed "too bad the Firehearts got you on the run, filthy pheonix-born!" The pheonix raised his wing and smacked her to the ground and planted his foot on her neck and asked "who are you too say that a pitiful race of bird-cats will live in our realm! You do not deserve to exsist!" Then Liezal replyed with "I am Liezal Blue-Feather! Para of the gryphon race!" Then Liezal pulshed blue and the pheonix's foot started to burn up, he moved away from her in shock and pain and gasped as his entire body was engulfed in flames. The other pheonix-born perpaired to open fire on Liezal and her party, then sevral hundred gryphons attacked them from behind and savegly claws and bit at them until at last they were all dead. Liezal grinned with bloodcrazed joy and said "you see friends the Golden Talon is broken! We will march right up to Lazam and smack him in the face! We will raze his base to the ground and take what is rightfully ours. The country of Syutha!" The gryphons cheered and on that vary day a new union between the gryphons was born. They changed there corse and headed west thwords a Golden Talon fort called Cinder-Reach, there task was simple attack the fort and take it as there own. Liezal stood on a hill gazing at the large fort with entisapation, she wanted nothing more then to run down and rip apart each and every pheonix and orc inside. Liezal looked at Zaren and said "this battle will mark the beginning of a new day for the gryphon race, we will rise above the Golden Talon and end there tarrior forever." Zaren looked at her with fear and asked "Liezal? Your getting ahead of yourself here, I agree that the Golden Talon must fall but you seem to be filled with so much rage and hate that I'm starting to wonder if your taking being immortal as a good thing." Liezal softened and replyed with a sad look "I hate being a Para Zaren, the wight of our entire race is on my shoulder. I know it sounds like I'm being cold, but I tell you this will only end in blood." Zaren nodded in understanding and said as he turned to walk down the hill "just dont loss who you are." Liezal turned to him, her eyes wide with tears. Then she ran and ran around to cut him off and she kissed him, Zaren smiled and Liezal said "just by looking at you my love, I am able to hold on to my sanity and I prey each and every night to be by your side. Zaren I love you and I know I can be alittle arrogent at times and maybe a little moody. But who cares I love you no matter what!" Then they kissed again and from the bottom of the hill stood Harren, glareing at Liezal she started to stomp forward but Rathen cut her off and said "leave them be Harren, cant you see they are ment for each other?" Harren looked at him, the looked at Liezal and Zaren and sighed "I guess they are a cute couple. Oh my friend will I ever find love?" Rathen smiled and nuzzled her and replyed with glee "some day Harren we will all find love, but right now lets keep our minds on winning this conflict." Harren nodded and walked up the hill slowly and bowed to both Zaren and Liezal and said "you two look great together, I am sorry Liezal for being selfish. I like Zaren alot and dident want to see him with a Blue-Feather. Will be forgive me?" Liezal smiled and locked her eyes with Harren's "what happened between our familys is the past, now we forge a new reputation for both the Blue-Feathers and Night-Falcons." Harren nodded and the two smiled at each other, then Zaren said "looks like the Golden Talon spotted us, they are massing orcs outside the fort." Liezal looked down at a large group of orcs and nodded "yes, but we have two Paras with us. They will not be a problem one bit. But just in case Rathen's map says theres a gryphon villige close by, Harren fly there as fast as you can and get volenteers to aid us." Harren nodded and took to the air and flew to do her task, the sun was getting low and Liezal looked at Zaren and said "we attack at dawn, tell everyone to ready camps." Zaren nodded and rushed down to relay the messege, Liezal just stood on the hill and watched the orcs coming out of the fort and she glared and said to herself "just wait Kiren, I will avenge my mother and I will have your head mounted on a stick." Then she walked down to rest.
#6: Fires of War
Liezal stood glareing down the hill as the sun began to rise, Zaren already had the army up and ready to go. Liezal turned to them and said with a grin "today we prove to the Golden Talon that we are not just random bandits any longer, we are gryphons united by a single goal and we will not be kept down by the ash bringers, children will stay behind this hill until the battle is over. Everyone else form up in ranks, Zaren you will lead a team threw the air. pick up rocks and boulders and drop them on the fort. My group will charge full on into the orcs guarding the outside." Then Liezal heard Harren say "and my group will cut around the back and break into the fort itself." Liezal looked at to hundreds of gryphons fallowing her, she had a banner with a blue feather painted on it and she was smileing. She waved the banner and said "I thought you might like the idea of knowing that an entire villige plus a few bands of bandits that also have interest in fighting the Golden Talon. I come back with 2000 strong warriors ready to fallow your orders Liezal Blue-Feather, and I offer this banner your honor." Liezal nodded in agreement and said with growing happyness "ok so Harren and her group will attack from behind the fort then, I guess this is our chance to make a mark on the lands." Then the groups orginized and got ready, Liezal signaled Zaren to begin his part of the attack. Liezal and her force gathered on the hill, she had atleast 1000 able gryphons by her side and she was ready to take action. Liezal stepped forward and walked to the center of what would be the battlefield and a large orc walked over to her with an ax. He pointed it at her and said "by order of the Flame Master Lazam, I command you and your people to stand down and face your fates." Liezal giggled with crual joy and replyed "ask yourself is it right that a great orc like you is taking orders from a cowardly pheonix?" The orc growled and stepped forward, Liezal did even show remorse as she screeched and the orc burst into flames and burned to death. Then she walked back over to her group and said "now we play the waiting game." Zaren's group flew over the fort and he noticed the catapults and cannons, he looked at another gryphon and said "everyone aim for the siege weapons, we cant allow Liezal and everyone fighting below to be caught in the cross fire and pinned down." The group gave up caws of understanding and they began to drop rocks and fallen trees down on the fort. The orcs scattered in fear and sevral siege weapons were destroyed, but more orcs were killed then anything. Zaren dropped his rock and was glad to see it land right on top of a cannon that was not rightly aimmed and it fired into the orc army instead of what it's target should have been, also the force of the rock and the firing of the cannon made it fly back and nailed a group of orcs climbing up some stairs.

Back oh Liezal's end she was paceing up and down the row of gryphons and looked at Zaren's group dropping the things they had salveged from the surronding area and she smiled as she saw the cannon go off and blow a hole in the orc ranks. She then noticed that the orcs were all looking to see who had fired the shot, now was the time to act! Liezal let out a loud screech and started rushing down the hill thwords the enemy, she was pleased to hear hundreds of screech's from behind and the sounds of running. The orcs turned at the last moment to see the gryphons ram into there ranks and the battle began. Liezal jumped onto a orc in the first row and bit into his neck and ripped the flesh free, then she dodged an ax and jumped up to kick another orc. Liezal knocked him into another and rushed threw the ranks, she could hear fighting all around her and she could hear things being dropped on the armys. Liezal slid under the legs of a orc who tryed swinging a two-handed sword at her and she screeched with anger. The orc's body froze in solid ice and Liezal rammed him, shattering the body in all derections. Then Liezal heard Darkfang's voice say "use your elemental energy to it's full power, let it flow freely and crush the will of your enemys." Liezal heard and obayed, she screeched for a third time and a purple disk appered around her body and Liezal ran forward useing the disk to chop and cut her way threw the orcs as if they will no more then simple villigers with no armor. The disk did more then just act as a blade it also guarded Liezal vary well, she could swing it up and block blows from orcs and she did so many times. She then bit the disk and pulled it over her shoulders and with a grunt threw it at a group of orcs who had wounded a gryphon. The orcs never saw the disk coming as it sliced threw them and killed every last one of them. Liezal rushed over to the wounded gryphon and lifted him up and said "dont give up friend, we must not fail here!" The gryphon had a deep cut in his chest but the bleeding was not so bad, it was one of those "looks worse then it ready was" kind of wounds. Liezal and the gryphons formed up and forced the orcs to retreat into the fort, Liezal grinned and said to her comrades "they are trapped inside now!" The group roared with joy and gryphons took turns ramming the stone door, the wounded were patched up as best as they could be and soon Liezal heard fighting coming from inside the fort. Then the stone door opened and there stood Harren and her group in the court yard. Most of the orcs were dead but a few had been captured, Liezal bowed her head to her and said "well that wasent too bad now was it." Harren laughed and replyed with "yeah and my group took only a few wounded, what of yours?" Liezal looked outside and counted the dead or dying gryphons and sighed "we lost atleast 50 maybe more." Harren nodded and stood next to Liezal and said with a low tone "they were on the frontlines, expect a few deaths. They died with the thought of freedom in mind, there is no better way to go." Liezal nodded and looked around and noticed the banner was intact and she said "tear down the Golden Talon flag and hang our own." Harren nodded and got to work, then Zaren and his group had a landed and Liezal said to the entire group "our first true victory has come to us, we lost some gryphons in the main assult and they will be buryed. But for now let us celibrat this victory, bring in the childred and lets see what wine and other things we can salvege from the celler." The gryphons got to work and Airee arrived with the children, she walked over to Liezal and bowed "you are a strong leader Liezal, a few died but it is war and that tends to happen. It wont take long for the Golden Talon to figure out that they lost a fort to a band of gryphons. Now then we have a free moment so lets talk about why I'm here." Liezal nodded and fallowed her into the fort where they could be alone.

#7: Secret Name
Relion stood starring at the large red dragon and asked "so were supposed to beleave your the Para of fire. Ha! Greatest story I have ever heard!" The red dragon growled and replyed pointing a clawed finger at Relion "shut your damn mouth elf! I would have your whole race rot if not for that damned Forusta!" Relion laughed again and pulled the Two-handed sword from his back and said "this blade is said to have been forged by Caluth, the Para of steel. If you are indeed a Para then I should be able to cut threw your elemental energy without cutting threw you." The dragon growled again and stood up on two feet "this is not-" Then Relion stepped forward and swung the sword, the dragon opened fire with a burst of flames. Relion sliced threw the fire and it turned to simple ambers, the the sword bouced off the dragon's arm and the point dropped into the dirt. Relion looked at the dragon's face and said "no way!" The red dragon grinned and lifted him up with one hand and said with a snarl "ever use that toothpick on me again and I will rip the flesh from your body with a razor." Then Lavatha then walked over to Soulan and said "now then I have come to aid the Firehearts in stopping this Golden Talon, but understand pheonix I am not your friend or to any of your kind." Soulan nodded with a smile of understanding "yes I understand now then, we have just learned that the Golden Talon's army of orcs are useing the volcano to cover there tracks. None of my pheonix-born have heat resistant scales, nor do the humans. So I would like to ask you to fly into the volcano and make it blow, kill them all." Lavatha thought about the plan and asked "why not ask the Deepruin to do it?" Soulan raised to her feet and replyed "because the Deepruin Clan are battling the Goldan Talon and there metal monstrositys in the west, and I have heard news that a gryphon uprising in the south has also gotten the Golden Talon on the run. Now we finish there orcs off here and now." Lavatha let out a snarl and said in anger "you do not order me around pheonix-born." Soulan gave a sly smile and said with a tone of amusement "Lavatha-Colreem (Fire Dragon of The West Wind)." Lavatha gasped as chains wrapped around his body and Soulan held the chain base. Lavatha howled in rage and said "how did you learn my full name?" Soulan cocked her head even more amused "Shivery may be old but she is still quite wise, she arrived her first before going off to find the Deepruin Clan. Told me everything I needed to know about you and how to control you." Lavatha's lower lip curled up in anger and he said in a low tone "that cursed bitch! She is no sister of mine, to betray me to a dimwitted pheonix." Soula turned the chain and it turned red hot and Lavatha growled in pain and said "fine I will obay and destroy that volcano but do not think that I will not be free of your power pheonix. The moment I am free I will rip you to pieces and seal your soul in my elemental energy that way I may torture you as I please." Soulan shrugged and said "well until that day comes your all mine Para, now go and destroy the orcs and return here to Sanity without dely." Then she turned to Relion and said "I will be sending you with a pheonix to a small orc camp near the gryphon rebelion, should you see any orcs kill them and if the gryphons are enemys kill them as well." Relion bowed and said with a tone of saddness "I wish Liezal was alive to see the end of the Golden Talon, we are so close to being at the gates of the Shadowcity." Soulan nodded and replyed "Liezal did her job, now take Saren with you. Careful Relion Saren is a reckless flyer and a young one, please stay safe." Relion nodded and bowed then rushed out to meet the pheonix. Then Soulan looked to Lavatha and said "your still here?" Lavatha growled and started walking thwords the door, Soulan then said "after the volcano erupts kill any surviving orc you find on the way back." The Para of fire just grunted in anger and left the temple. Soulan slumped down on her throne and sighed "I have given my soul to the fire Para, he is not one to make empty threats. Once this war is over I will lead my people to the Realm of Fire then my soul will be forfit."

#8: Shattered Ice
Hearuth stood next to Sharra like she always did and walked on with the rest of the Deepruin dragons. They were nearing Shadowcity now and each step made Hearuth feel more overjoyed that soon the Golden Talon will be knocked out for good. He looked at the large dragoness up front with his mother and whispered to Sharra "is that really Shivery?" Sharra turned and looked at him with a frown and rolled her eyes "thats right I forgot you grew up in Syutha instead of Lordoris. Yes thats Shivery the ice Para, I was trained by her husbend Forusta in the ways of the forest dragon." She smiled at him and nuzzled his neck and continued "I remember every bit of him, he saved my life agenst a nightmare called Snakeion. You see Snakeion was once a Para, he created everything here and favored the pheonix-born greatly. He even gave them Para like powers which is where the Fire Masters come from. The Fire Masters did a foolish thing with there power, they created us." Then Sharra giggled and kissed Hearuth's cheek and sniffed the air and gasped "I smell oil again!" Hearuth smelled it too and said "the scouts saw a strange base near here, it looked human only with the robotic dragons guarding it. If I had the power too make a choice I would raid that place and destroy the monsters myself." Then a voice appared next to him and said "oh really, just how in the world would you do that with the strange barriers around the robotic dragons hmm?" Hearuth yelped as he turned to see Shivery standing next to him, she smiled and continued "your Skiree's boy right, well I wouldent try something I couldent complete without knowing what I was up agenst. Your clan allowed me to examin one of the downed robots and I found that the shield that appers does not come from the robots themselves, but rather comes from another place. I think that this human scientist is the answer to your problem. Kill him and the robot's barriers are gone, however I'm sure he will not just be standing in the open with a welcome sign. Do not fear child of Lavatha you will get your chance just fallow Skiree's orders and victory will come." Then Shivery walked out of the line and rushed back up to the front and looked back at Hearuth and smiled kindly. Sharra giggled and Hearuth asked "whats so funny?" Sharra continued to giggle and soon it turned into a laugh "sorry . . . it's just you got told off by a Para!" Hearuth rolled his eyes and replyed "yeah yeah just keep walking lady." Then he heard a metalic roar and a robotic dragon rushed down the hill and rammed Skiree, Hearuth gasped and saw more robotic dragons getting ready to do the same. He rushed at one and bit into it's wing and ripped it off, then reared up and crushed it's skull to pieces. Sharra threw a golem seed at the oncoming robots and watched as a large plant golem rose from the ground and attacked the robotic dragons with a large club made of stone. She grinned and said to herself "I really do love that power!" Then she turned and rushed down the hill thwords Skiree who was battling the robot that had rammed her. Sharra noticed that it had Rage-1 painted on it's wings and she remembered with a gasp that so did the robot dragon that was made from Sonyca's body. She knew it was the same robot and she watched as it pushed Skiree back. But before Sharra could aid her another robot attacked her from behind. It knocked her down and turned one of it's arms into a buzzsaw and tryed slicing into her belly, but Sharra willed the plants to attack and a large vine shot out of the ground and speared threw the monster's body killing it. Then she turned to see the robot knock Skiree down and turn it's hand into a large spike. Sharra started running at the robot but there was nothing she could have done, the robotic dragon brought the spike down on Skiree's heart and stabbed right threw. Skiree spat out a stream of red blood and roared in deep pain, then Sharra dived on the robot and breathed acid on it's face. In moments the robot shut down and died, Sharra rushed to Skiree's side and said "Skiree your going to be okay! Just keep looking at me my friend." Skiree gave a small smile and placed her head on Sharra's and whispered slowly "I have lived long Sharra . . . dont you think I should at last join the Paras." Sharra gasped and began to cry "no Skiree not now, you still have a clan to lead and a son to-" Skiree brought a finger to Sharra's lips and said kindly "Hearuth has grown Sharra, the clan is safe from any known threat and Syutha too will soon be free. It is time Hearuth took on his destiny as king of the Deepruin and you his qween." Sharra's eyes were wide with tears then she heard Hearuth slide down the hill and rush over, he kneeled down next to his mother and lifted her head off the ground and embraced her "mother stay with us please." Skiree's green eyes gazed into his and said "Sonyca . . . you need to know the truth. She is only . . . your part sister . . . Jarith a old friend of mine caught my eyes when I was young, we mated and she was created from Jarith's power. However you my son were born from Everan . . . shortly after Jarith betrayed us and began Lair me and Everan could nolonger hide our feelings for each other and we not resist each other. Everan has alwasy been your father, and Jarith has always been Sonyca's that is way she was currupted." Skiree gave a pained caugh and said "understand Hearuth it has never been Sonyca's fault for what she has done . . . Jarith's elemental energy is stronge and will likely exsist in the Deepruin for hundreds of dragon years . . . but you must remind yourself you choose how to use your elemental energy and rise up to be the best dragon you can be. Hearuth son of Skiree and Everan I name you king of the Deepruin Clan . . . bring honor to your clan and always be proud of what I did to protect you. But I was a fool to have sent you away . . . I was young and arrogant, please never make the same mistake . . . I love you my son." Then Skiree's eyes went cold and lifeless and Hearuth knew she was gone, he looked at Sharra and she rested her head on his shoulder "I am so sorry." Hearuth patted her and nodded "I know . . ." Then he noticed that the Deepruin was watching and he rose to his feet and looked at all of them and let out a roar, he then said with tears showing in his eyes "Skiree (Qween of ice and snow) is dead, she made me king of the Deepruin! I do not exspect your loyalty nor do I deserve it! But we must hold dear to ourselfs the memorys Skiree brought. She was a daughter and a mother, a soldier and a warrior. But like all dragons, from the moon we are born, from the sun we die! I have been named king by birthright, and I will forfil my mother's dying wish and avenge her tonight!" The Deepruin Clan all roared in both pain for the loss of there qween and happyness for there new king. Hearuth rounded everyone up and told Sharra "we are going to that fortress and wipeing it out completely we will find that scientist and rip him apart. Then we will head to the Gryphon Resistance and aid them in what ways we can." Then Shivery appared from seemingly nowhere and said "yes Liezal and Airee could use aid, they have massed a big force and are heading to Shadowcity." Hearuth looked at her and nodded "and after we destroy that robot maker we will meet up with her on the way and finish this once and for all."

***
#9: Shadowcity
Liezal and the army of gryphons arrived outside Shadowcity and she grunted at the high walls and said "this is no good it will take us weeks to topple that wall." Then Airee appered next to her and said "not if I help you use your Para powers, you are the Gryphon Para and since you are the first you will always be the strongest. Use the power Darkfang gave you and destroy that wall, but before you do I will tell you this: our realm is know as the Realm of Light, the pheonix-born are from a realm know as the Realm of Fire. Is was destroyed millions of years ago by me and my siblings, however a realm can never truely be destroyed and so it her returned. Your friend Soulan will become a Flame Misstress and lead her people to that realm and hopefully live in peace. However in order to stop Lazam you will need your full power, you must absorb Darkfang completely and take his power of the undeath for yourself!" Liezal looked at her like she was crazy and asked "but wouldent I become Viparion if I did that?" Airee let out a childish giggle and replyed "it could happen but Darkfang dident become Viparion until after his mortal life endded, but unlike him you were born a para so by absorbing him you are killing Viparion for good and taking his power for yourself. Only a Para can truely kill a Para or a Flame Master." Liezal nodded and commented "we should wait for the Firehearts to get here first, until then we will siege the city so the Golden Talon has nowhere to go." Airee agreeded and said "you should be with Zaren as long as you can, for once your job of killing Lazam is finished you will have to join us in the Temple of Stars, we already have a throne built for you and everything!" The wind Para jumped up excitedly and continued "in any case go to Zaren and love one another while you can." Liezal then asked "can I return to Syutha as I please?" Airee nodded and answered "you may do as you wish my friend, but you must attend the boring meetings that Lavatha holds. He's a vary arrogent Para-Dragon, but he is also a great warrior." Then there was an explosion and everyone looked over at the mountain of Battlespike and watched it erupt, a huge ash cloud rose off the mountain and soon ash began falling from the sky like snow. Airee smiled and said "speaking of which! Ha! Soulan commanded him to destroy Battlespike and so destroy the orcs hidding within." Liezal grinned and walked over to Zaren and said "I need to speak with you alone." He nodded and fallowed her away from the group.

***

An hour later they returned nuzzling each other and Harren smiled at them and knew what they had done, there was no question about it. She walked over to them and said "so, did you two have fun alone!" Then she laughed and walked along side them, Liezal looked at her and said "we are going to have a child Harren, however due to me being a para I wont be able to see the child much so could you due me a favor and be the child's godmother?" Harren gleemed with joy and bowed with respect and replyed "any thing for a para, so are the paras just pieces of the great Author?" Then Airee rushed up to them and answered Harren's question "yes we are, we were born of his scales and the Flame Masters were born of his feathers. We call him Snakeion which means the Eater of Dreams, where as you call him the Author." Harren nodded and looked at the other gryphons and said "well congrats I too have found a mate worthy of song and I love him greatly. So when do we attack?" Liezal smiled and replyed "when the Firehearts get here, at the moment that wall would take us a while to knock down and we would loss many gryphons so I say we wait for aid." Then they heard the screech of a pheonix and Liezal looked up to see a pheonix land and on her back was Relion, he hopped down and ran over to her and embraced her in a hug. Liezal smiled and said "you are as happy as ever!" Relion laughed and replyed "well the doom of the Golden Talon is coming soon, all there forts are either owned by your army, the Firehearts, or the Deepruin who are on there way this instent. However they lost Skiree in a battle agenst robotic monsters and now Hearuth commands them." Liezal nodded feeling for the blue ice dragoness and she said "what of the Firehearts are they coming as well?" Relion nodded and said with a grin "Lazam wont know what hit him after this, and Soulan says that once the Golden Talon is gone the gryphons will stay united and form a great empire. You know you would make a great qween Liezal." Liezal nodded and said with a blank face "yes, but I cannot for I am a Para-Gryphon now and that means someone else will rise to power. I will have a temple I know that and I'm sure many gryphons will seek my aid in the coming years." Relion's lower jaw dropped and he gazed at her for a moment and said "you! A para! Thats great news." Airee giggled and commented "yes but now we must ready ourselfs for the final battle young elf, Battlespike just exploded for the Golden Talon wont get any reinforcements. Now we just play the waiting game and wait for the rest of the party guests to arrive. Oh how i love to wait!"
#10: Return of A Hero
With in an hour all the forces of Syutha were surronding, Liezal stood by Hearuth and Relion. The elf looked at the sun as it was setting and said "two moons, two goals, one victor. I prey this was not all for nothing." Liezal looked at him and commented "elfs and there wierd sayings, we will will this fight and bring to light a new age." Then Liezal looked up as ashes fell from the sky and she closed her eyes and said to Darkfang in her mind "are you ready?" Darkfang replyed with a chuckle "as ready as a simple thought ever could be, but ask yourself Liezal what happens when Viparion takes over my soul again when you free me? Will you kill me yourself and take the power of death to keep balence?" Liezal rolled her eyes and said with a force of mild arrogance "we've been throw this before Master Darkfang, Viparion or not it is time you joined us in this fight." Then Liezal willed the mist deep within her body to travel to her soul and begin tearing out the pieces that belonged to Darkfang, it was a painful process but she endured it. When Liezal was sure she had removed all the parts od Darkfang's soul she looked at Hearuth and said "could I see one of the fallen Deepruin dragons, perferably one with black scales and purple stripes thats male?" Hearuth frowned at her and thought about it then asked "what for?" Liezal knew it would not be easy to convince Hearuth to see the body of a fallen male dragon so she said "it's Para bussness." Hearuth nodded and she fallowed his to a place where sevral wounded and dying dragons were laying on mats, he walked up to Sharra and whispered something in her ear. She nodded and looked at Liezal "Curth was a young black dragon with purple stripes, he was a decendent of the Black Fire Clan and son of the traitorus Shatterix. He was shot threw the chest by one of the robotic dragons and killed, will his body do?" Liezal nodded and Sharra showed her a slim dragon barely even 20 in dragon years. Liezal formed the blue mist around her body and said to Hearuth and Sharra "I wont lie this may drop your trust of me for i am attempting to trasfer the soul of another dragon into this body so he may have another chance at life. This dragon dident have a good life in his past and was horridly infected by Viparion, you have met him before Sharra he is Darkfang the Shadowknight." Sharra gasped and the memorys of her past flashed in her mind and she said "Darkfang is Viparion Liezal, he could destroy us all!" Hearuth let out an amused laugh and commented "atleast then we would be with mother, maybe death is not such a bad thing." Sharra glared at him and looked at Liezal in anger "is this the will of th Paras! To have a monster walking over the world killing hudreds! I like you Liezal as a friend and respect you as a Para but how could you ever even consider bringing Viparion back to life." Liezal looked at her and replyed "because Darkfang and I shared souls all my life, Viparion is dead replaced by me and I did not inharit his powers but gained Darkfang's instead. Viparion nolonger exsists Sharra, and Darkfang is wise and loyal. I wouldent be alive right now if it wernt for him, Dark-Liezal would be destroying entire realms right now. I know it sounds crazy but ask yourself which is worse to not trust someone, or to allow eternal darkness to rule all of life." Sharra growled and stomped her foot and paced back and forth and said "I will not respect him, nor will I hear him out. Darkfang is dead to me Liezal, I will not allow him into the clan." Liezal grinned at her comment and said "thats fine because Darkfang is not returning to Lordoris, he is staying here in syutha. In 5 months I will have a child, I may be part bird but our children are born live. The child will have great power and he himself may not be able to control it, dragons have studyed elemental energy for hundreds of years and only a dragon can protect the young Blue-Feather from himself. Darkfang will train my child to use it's power for the good of Syutha, he as already given me his word that he will and I have forgiven Darkfang for his sins and I trust him." Sharra let out a mocking laugh and glared at Liezal "his words mean nothing, Darkfang will betray you sooner or later." Then she stomped off and Hearuth looked at Liezal and said "understand that Sharra was nearly killed by Viparion when she was a welpling, her anger cannot be helped." Liezal nodded and looked at the dead dragon and said with pride "he will do I think, but Darkfang will want to talk with Sharra of that I'm sure." Then Liezal placed her paw on the dragon's snout and she caughed up a purple orb, Hearuth gasped and said "thats a dragon's soul alright." Liezal closed her eyes and uttered "moon to sun, dawn, to dusk, life to death, awaken Shadowknight and be reborn." Then the soul went down the dead dragon's throat and Liezal placed her head on the dragon's heart. At first she heard nothing, then she heard a faint beating that got louder and stronger. Then the dragon's eyes shot open and he caughed dust, Hearuth looked at him and bowed and said "by the Paras Liezal you just brought back the dead!" Liezal hopped of the dragon's body and asked "Master Darkfang are you well?" Darkfang looked around for a bit and said "my vision is slowly returning and I can breath air again, but my body hurts like hell." Heauth's eyes were wide and he said "well the body you now own as your own was shot up by the robotic dragons in battle so there may be bullets still in your chest. I could have a healing dragon remove them if you want sir." Darkfang waved his hand and replyed "no thanks young lad, your medics will need there elemental energy." Then he looked at Liezal and gasped "I forgot how small gryphons were, but in anycase I owe you much Liezal. Our thoughts are nolonger one which means you have more room in your mind." Liezal nodded and looked at Hearuth and said "find the other three Paras here, we have much to talk about. Darkfang please go speak with Sharra, I'm not sure if you remember her but-" Darkfang let out another caugh and nodded "I remember Sharra, little green forest welpling that
