A Week Ago-Middle of Nowhere
Paradise had finally been complete and Victor was out in the real world, no longer protected in his own world of Paradise. He was alone and he had a single thing in mind, finding the source of a yearning at the back of his mind. Since he had become Sicarius their was something connecting him to this Earth, a single reverb that bounced around in his mind. Most importantly it was a urge to go out and bring those who work hard at being those others don’t want. One voice spoke louder than the others, Victor was connected to nearly everyone around him telepathically, and upon entering the United States a single voice called out, begging for someone to come and entertain it. The person behind the voice may not even know they are calling out, but Victor heard loud and clear. Another voice screamed to him, but that was only when he was near the newly formed Grimm City. A matter to be looked into on another day, now he stood outside a small home. The rain pelting his long grey gown, onlookers couldn’t help but stare at him. A small town made being an outsider very hard, especially when Victor wanted to not be noticed. Cursing at the fact he followed the voice into such a small town, he stepped forward and knocked on the door.
A scuffle could be heard inside followed by a loud thud, the sounds of shoes trying to grip a tiled floor echo out through the door. A smirk comes to Victor’s face as he waits patiently, slowly the door opens and a beautiful woman peeks out the crack she left while opening the door. “Uh...Yes?” Victor smiled wide at her eyes, they were bright and vibrant. He held his hand out an she closed the door slightly as he spoke “I have been searching for you, heard your voice calling out to me I wish to-” Suddenly the door slams in his face and he can hear the woman running out the back. Disappearing into the shadows and reappearing outside the back door it opened fast as she came to a skidding stop “Alright maybe that came off a bit odd...” She turned leaving the door open and ran. Victor sighed and disappeared reappearing inside the house, and around the corner of where the woman was running he barked loudly “Why are you running?!” She stopped breathing slightly heavier than earlier. She looked him up an down panting “You arnt?” He cut her off “No...I came here to offer you something.” Her attitude made an 180 and her body posture was more relaxed “Then why the hell did you start off with the rapist speech?” She turned her back to him walking into the dining room of the mighty house, grabbing a glass she poured herself some wine “You had me thinking you either were here to kill me, or my husband dragging me into yet another fiendish plot. Sometimes a lady needs some alone time", she says licking her lips flirtatiously. A muffled scream can be heard from a nearby closet. She walks over and opens it yelling “Give me ten minutes!!! Then you can have your home back!!” She turned to Victor with a smile “Some people!”.
She had obviously taken control of the house, putting its tenants in the closet while she feasted. She plopped into a table chair and putting her feet up on the table she asked bluntly “So what you want from me Mr. Rapist?” Victor groaned at his new nickname “My name is Victor, Clara was it?” Her body tensed as he said her name, she glared at him “Your a telepath arnt you? You know its very rude entering somebodies mind without asking?” Victor nodded and smiled “I apologize, from now on I will ask before I do it. But onto what I came here for..” Again she cut him off, and it was becoming more than a bit irritating to Victor. “Dont give me the bullsh!t speech either. I can tell when people are lying to me. And I prefer not to dirty these new shoes by shoving them up your ass.” He looked to her confused and continued “Well seems I do not need to go out of my way to fool you. You want the real reason huh? Fine I have created a single place for all the Evil in the world. A place to hold all the worlds most vile and repulsive creatures and humans in this world.” She stopped him “Why?” He growled slightly at her interruption “Because we are a dying breed Clara. Many say they are Evil, yet they wouldn’t know true evil if it bit them on the ass. Hell most don’t even know that Lucifer isn’t the ONLY Devil in this universe. I hope to gain a place for everyone to live and prosper. I-” She tossed her fork at him and it slammed into the wood of his chair “I said no bullsh!t...” He smirked at her knowing full well that speech wasn’t going to work “Fine Clara, I am building a Paradise to house those Evil in the world and teach them. Whilst at the same time building an army to wipe all those smug heroes off their high horses. Is that more real for you? Is that enough for you, is that enough of information to give you an idea of what I came here for?” Victor was slightly irritated at how many times she had interrupted him. She shrugged and took a bite of an apple “Don’t really care, long as you give me my space. And I have the biggest closet, and I'm following so long as I get answers upon reaching our destination because I'd hate to be a lost lass following her would be rapist blindly" her serpent tongue already giving hints of a certain deviousness. Victor looked to her with disbelief, she truly was the constantly in flux being he had found with her voice. His heart skipped a bit as he stared at her, shaking the feeling he sat up straight and took his jaw off the table. Standing up he opened the front door with his mind and gestured for her to walk out first “Lets get going then, seems your little marathon through the house got someone’s attention. Anyone you wish to bring with you?” She shook her head grabbing an umbrella “Nah, impervious Impero will find me when he needs to. Until than I suppose we can play”, she winks playfully before walking out the doors. And so it seemed she'd be the voice to watch out for.
That Same Week-Grimm City
After returning to the United States after bringing Clara to Paradise, Victor had a run in with a man named Flucks. During his meeting the two showed off each of their own powers, showing that neither would back down. Upon bringing in the Demon Five, Flucks attitude had changed from confrontational to curious. He wanted to know who this tall and almost ghostly white man was, he saw Victor as a man tall and muscular. Something different than Clara, she had seen an oddly attractive yet unattractive quality to him. She had told him his appearance changed everyday, that his powers were working in overdrive to hide his true self. This time was the opposite, Flucks had seen his true appearance and found it entertaining.
The two now sit opposite of each other, in the middle of an empty bar. Flucks had two extravagant guns holstered to his waist. One on either side of him he let his fingers trail the details of each gun as he sat staring at Victor. A server came to there table, trembling in fear as she set down two drinks. Victor took a swig of his and Flucks slowly sipped on his, the two never taking there eyes off each other. Finally Victor spoke “So how long you going to keep me in the dark?” Flucks replied with a swift tongue “Long as you, keep me from da prize. You keep tellin meh that you have something powerful. So show me your toys, cuz as of right now. I have seen betteh things in dumpsters mahne.” Victor rolled his eyes and held out his hand, from his sleeve rolled a small device. It flattened and then shot out a ray of light, this ray of light shimmered and then disappeared as Victor paused. “Can we get rid of the audience we have garnered?” Flucks eyes rose then he un-holstered one of his guns. “Fwip fwit fwoot” The gun fired three times, and three men were dead “Don’t worry, worked for a rival. Been meaning to kill deez chumps for weeks, now onto the show.” Victor smiled waving the waitress the leave, she did so quickly and the door slammed shut.
Revealing his palm the light flickered on again, showing Paradise in its full glory. And as the tour of his wondrous city ended, the Underground was shown. “In my Underground, you can develop anything you need. Whether its drugs, money laundering, or even weapons its all yours to use at your command.” Flucks looked wide eyed at the vastness of what he was being shown. Then quickly looked to Victor “And the catch? An don’t tell me there’s no catch, I’m not an idiot. I know when an offer is too good to be true.” Victor smiled and replied even as fast as Flucks had asked the question “Your service, and your towns underground dwellings. As we discussed yesterday, All I wish is for you and your people to be one with mine. Every once in a while we take a few of your street urchins and experiment or feed on them. And in return you gain all the wealth you need.” Flucks stared at Victor for a few moments then spoke bluntly much like Clara had “Fine, but I aint no ones bitch. I do what I want when I want it, and no peeking around in my head without asking.” Victor smiled wide and shut the projection off. “Lets get you too your new room shall we, plus some local beauties have been hearing about you and wish to show you how big of fans they are of you.” Flucks smiled and the two left the bar.
Now Within Paradise
The three sat around a large table, large enough to hold three times as much people. But now its nearly empty only Clara, Flucks and Victor sit at the monumental table. Victor slid Clara a folio holding names and addresses of two dozen people. People who would either benefit from coming to Paradise and becoming one of F.E.A.R or those he wished to be students. “Find them, and bring them here. Use whatever you need to to get them here, We need to show our Paradise that we bring only those willing to protect them. An I have entrusted that into you Clarice, Flucks will stay behind and welcome each to Paradise. Bringing only those who will be joining us in this room here in the Underground directly here. The others will be escorted to the Plateau, now lets go. I have a large speech to write, I want these ones back here as soon as possible.
