Post Mutiny and Assassination
He smiled and sat beside the window in his bedchambers, watching the sunset and the peasants hurrying below. He had spent the entire month in preparation for this night.

He looked out at the temple beyond the castle walls. The clergy were indeed easy prey. They had fallen for the bait in their sheer anger, and would soon suffer the consequences.

Tonight... tonight is the night I die.
Are you sure you want to do this master?
Aye Casse, this is something that needs to be done. And how is Joan?
Murdered and still dead master, as you have commanded.

He nodded and smiled. The clergy had hired an assassin to kill poor Joan for pillaging the temple everynight for the last month, no doubt the same one they planned to use to kill him tonight.

Earlier in the week he had killed several of his allies for their support of the clergy. They had been warned, and now they were dead.

The clergy have control of our allies lands as well?
Yes master, and they send monetary support for the ones in our land.

He nodded and stood, watching the woman who stood before him a moment.

Are you ready for tonight Casse?

He smiled as she nodded and extended his arm to her, leading her on their trip to the temple outside the castle walls.

They walked slowly through the kingdom, noting the reactions of the different peasants busily prepping for the next days activities. They couldn't help but laugh at the majority of the peasants, for they were adopted by the clergy, and trained to think as the clergy says they should think.

All of the peasants knew who they were, but to the adopted ones he was their wolfish overlord and tormentor, sicced upon them for their disobedience and unfaithfulness to their god.

Casse they saw as his panther pet, lover, and accomplice. Joan, the human equivalent of Casse to both.

To the minority, those not adopted, he was their saviour and master, Casse and Joan merely figureheads of his power. But now Joan was dead, and all of the peasants knew trouble was at hand.

They continued laughing at the adopted peasants, for they always looked up him and her with abhorrence and aversion. He nodded at the bowed gate guards as they passed through the still open gate, and continued on their way to the temple.

They stopped at the temple doors, listening to the muffled voices from inside, and trying to discern the conversation the best they could.

The half breed watched the clergy as they fearfully ran through their plans for the night. The believed in their god as most men did, but they could not shake the fear of their life being ripped from their grasped.


And you, you are aware of your objectives tonight?

The half breed glared at the man speaking, and merely nodded.

And do you remember what to bring us as proof of the job, before payment will be made?
The heart and head of your demon overlord. So that he may not be resurrected...

Good. His sleeping chambers is at the top of the...
Quiet fool, he awaits outside the doors with his pet.
Did they hear our conversation?

The half-breed shook his head and entered the shadows at the back of the temple, and unsheathed his dagger.

Now Quickly, open the door and bid him to enter, unless you want the army to fall upon you.

He laughed to himself watching the clergy rush to the door to meet their tormentor in good faith, and awaited the events of the evening at hand.
