Title: Dark Dragon
Rating: PG-13 for blood, violence, and swearing
Summary: Hunter and Spyro chase an evil dragon in the Forgotten Worlds.
Disclaimer: I don't own Spyro or his friends, they belong to Universal Studios. I do own a character that will be introduced here, but you'll learn the name soon.
Author's Note: I'm into scary and violent stuff, so this fic will contain violence. Since I'm a Spyro fan and a major Lord of the Rings fan, I might put a Tolkien twist in this story. Those who don't like this don't need to read this, that is all.
Long ago in the Dragon Kingdom, one dragon took hold of a Dark Talisman. This dragon suddenly committed crimes like theft and murder. Outraged, the Dragon Council banished him from the Kingdom.
For years, the dragon lived in a cave as the Talisman darkened his soul. He swam in the cold, underground lakes, catching fish to eat. He would also eat any animal that wandered into his lair. The Sun and Moon, he no longer saw. The only one he talked to was himself. He forgot to breathe fire, his large wings hardly had any webbing left, his claws were long and filthy, his eyes became used to the darkness, and his bloodstained teeth gave him the name Bloodfang.
Bloodfang kept his Talisman close to him, until he dropped it while he was walking through his cave. His Talisman was not lost, but fell into the hands of a normal dragon who was adventuring. That dragon was Gildas of the Artisans.
When Bloodfang saw Gildas wandering around aimlessly, he became curious. He swam up onto the dark shore of the lake where he met Gildas. Frightened, Gildas confronted Bloodfang by asking some questions. Bloodfang was not even interested in helping Gildas, he wanted the intruder destroyed. As he went back to his den to find his Talisman, he could not find it. Angry, Bloodfang knew that Gildas had it.
"Thief!" Bloodfang screeched. He chased after Gildas through the cave. Using the Talisman, Gildas escaped.
"We hates it! Hates it! Forever!" Bloodfang cursed.
After Gildas' escape, Bloodfang found the courage to leave his lair and search for the Talisman. He ran in the wilderness for years, unknown to all except himself. While he ran through the realm called the Forgotten Worlds, he made a friendly union with the Sorceress, and he swore an oath to serve her secretly.
It was not until sixty years later, that Bloodfang cracked. It happened when Spyro, a relative of Gildas, defeated the Sorceress. This drove Bloodfang into deeper rage, and he promised himself to kill the young dragon one day.

The evening was dark, the ooze pits boiled, the stars glittered in the sky. One young man was sitting outside of the Stone Gollem, smoking a cigarette.
"It's getting late," he said out loud to himself. "I better get home." He tossed what was left of his cigarette onto the sand and went into the tomb.
Inside the Stone Gollem, was all dark, very few torches were lighted, but the tomb was still a passage for people. The young man walked into the dark halls, when he was about to climb the first ladder, he heard a hissing noise.
"Who's there?" he asked. He looked around, still nothing. He lit up his lighter. "I'm warning you, I have a lighter that could burn you!"
The hissing and growling came closer, until the young man could feel and smell hot breath on the back of his neck. He turned around slowly to meet a pair of eerie yellow eyes.
The young man screamed, then something sharp slashed at his neck. He was slammed into one wall of the tomb. Lying on the ground, his head felt numb and blood flowed down his neck. He looked up to see a large, twisted shadow towering over him. The yellow eyes were glowing like fireballs.
"Piss off," the young man muttered. The shadow leaped on him, teared at him. Trying to escape, the young man screamed, until the shadow finished him.
End Note: I know that was short, but that was only the prelude. It didn't sound so scary there, but later chapters will get scary. Yes, the prelude does sound like the Hobbit (c) J.R.R. Tolkien, but Bloodfang's personality is based on Gollum.
