Unlike his usually grandiose arrivals, the Emperor merely strode from the large open gates at one end of the elliptical ring of blood and sand. The entire structure was similar in vein to what humans had called the Roman Coliseum. Were the Coliseum five times as large and a lustrous black, inlaid with palladium. The blocks felt metallic and stone, smooth to the touch and almost warm. They didn’t give off energy but there was definitely a presence that emanated just beyond the edge of perception. It had been simply named Impervium, the entire structure was an extension of the Core Crystal, Magi laced through the entire structure. Bound to the Core Crystals sentience the structure was indestructible. Incapable of being manipulated, inert, and impervious, the structure was simply incapable of being damaged unless the Core Crystal deep in the heart of the Tera below became compromised.

Given the wards and guards set, such a thing was a fool’s errand and pointless besides. Mesiphidon had already manifested in this area some time ago, creating a new avatar was unnecessary. Thus his simple arrival by the front gates, his deep black cloak crested with a mantle of lion fur. The fur from a Harsonan Lion was priceless beyond compare, magnificent creatures larger than a draft horse. And one of the few natural creatures besides Dra’sen that were Magi gifted, even if they were incapable of utilizing it consciously.

For a man called the God Emperor he seemed completely without power, attempting to scry his 6’3 broad shouldered frame would reveal little more than that body was human at the peak of conditioning. And yet his eyes burned, white fires coated the Sclera masking his gaze behind the apathetic mask of his face. A short almost unkempt beard framed his face, which only seemed to fit with the not quite short but untamed white hair. The seemingly armored almost form snug vest and his black trousers added the final touch. He appeared at once savage and regal, wild yet refined.

The only surety was the intensity about the man, his bearing, the way he held himself spoke of a hubris that dwarfed all others. His burning gaze all but disregarding any who stood before it after it expunged the depths of your soul and the core of your being; there was no mistaking the warrior born. Not with the large lion crested Hoplon upon his left arm. Or the double ended polearm held loosely in the right hand. A barbed spear at one end, inverted halberd blades at the other and capped with a smooth crystal that burned with light. Alan’dore was but a small legend now in comparison to its wielder. Yet any who knew of it feared it all the same.

No there was certainly nothing human about Mesiphidon, no mortal could possibly hold that gaze, the knowledge behind those fires. To those of a keener sense, those aware of the world beyond its base reality, even there he ceased to exist. Like a hole where existence should be flooding, yet it felt as if the hole were so dense it might crush all that there was. With no soul, and no apparent source of life within this world it begged to question how the body stood there as it did. But Core Magi was not something so easily known. The potential behind it all that teetered on the edge of existence and not.

And now another fool had come to challenge the Son of Ruin. Had prodded the sleeping giant despite warning; and had the Emperor any sense of empathy beyond that which his beloved wife tried to instill in him. He might have felt pity or sorrow for the poor soul coming to meet their end. Mesiphidon had decided against the utilization of a more potent avatar. He would reserve such a gift for those that proved worthy. He would at the very least honor her perseverance with the tools of his trade. Alan’dore would grant a swift death. But for now he waited, patience certainly not his strong suit as many knew so very well.
