A/N: Okay, fanfic readers, this chapter gets a bit dark. There is mention of Satan himself in this chapter. Actually, he is a major part of this story. However, I want you all to know that I DO NOT in anyway worship the devil or anything of the like. I just wanted to mix things up a little and create a creature of my own and tell you a little bit of Akio's lineage.
In a place far above Earth, the Merciful Goddess sits on her throne and chuckles at the antics of her favorite source of entertainment, which she is able to see through her lily pond.
"Those boys are heading for trouble." she said, watching Gojyo look into the child's eyes. She saw the flash of confusion pass through the hanyou's eyes. She knew that General Kenren wasn't as dense as everyone thought he was. He doesn't know exactly why the infant's eyes are the color of fire, but he knows that it is unusual that they aren't the color of blood.
"What do you mean, my lady?" asked her always worried assistant, Jiroshin, who moved to stand by her throne.
"I mean they are going to face a great many dangers if they decide to keep him."
"Then they should leave him with someone else?"
"No. If they do that, the world will perish." She said as she saaw the group packing their belongings to head to the next town.
"How is a child capable of such doom?"
"He won't be if he remains in the right hands."
"What would happen if he ended up in the wrong hands?"
"Many enemies will be after him once his true powers are known. They will harvest his magic and use it for their own purposes."
"But… I don't understand. What powers does the child possess? He is merely a half-breed, right?"
"Wrong. He is a lot more than a half-breed."
"If he is not just a half-breed, then what is he?"
"My dear, Jiroshin. If I told you that, it would spoil the surprise." She said as a smirk graced her lips.
Meanwhile, in a place far below Heaven and Earth, sits Satan himself.
"My grandson will make a fine power source for me and cause more havoc than the others I've placed on Earth." he said to his assistant, Lucielle. She was a tall woman, very plain looking, and hardened features. There was a long line of others that wanted to be Satan's assistant, but he chose her. He wanted a woman in particular; a strong, evil woman. The process to acquire the position was not a pleasant one, but she didn't care. He chose to rape the women that wanted to be his assistant and the first one who showed hatred in her eyes, instead of sadness, would be chosen. He loved to break people of their spirt, but it didn't work on her. So here she was…
"How so? He is only a child." she asked looking into his puddle of demon blood with him. Inside the puddle, she saw a tall hanyou man, staring at the grandchild of Satan. She didn't see anything special about the child at first glance.
"Yes, but he is powerful. He holds more power than all the other weaklings that dare call themselves 'demons' put together!" his voice boomed throughout Hell.
"How could that be?"
"He contains a part of myself and part demon. If my foolish son didn't procreate with a filthy human, my grandson would've been unstoppable!"
"That's very impressive, master, but how did you manage to accomplish all of this."
"Every 523 years, I am able to travel to Earth. It is then when my power is at its strongest. However, I can only stay there for one day. During that time, I mate with strong demon women, who are unwilling. Once my spawn grows to be 18 years of age, their magic grows to its full potential. Then, my child will find a demon to mate with and have my grandchild. When my grandchild is born, they inherit the dark magic when they turn 2 years of age. However, this process will be prolonged due to my son's stupidity."
"How many times have you done this, master?"
"I've only done this once before. I am very proud of the way he turned out. A true demon he was. He would've been great, but as always, the gods like to interfere with my work. My grandson was sealed away for the past 500 years. The God of War, Nataku, took my grandson away from me, but I plan on having him back."
"The great demon, Gyumaoh, was your grandson?" Lucielle said in shock. Gyumaoh was the most infamous demon in all history!
"Yes, that is correct. That time worked perfectly because everything was done out of evil and hate. I raped a strong demon woman and she tried to kill herself. However, my magic doesn't allow such a thing until my child is born. Because she didn't understand why she couldn't die, she went positively insane. Once my child was born, she took him to the woods, sat him beneath a tree, and hung herself from a tree branch right above him. My child feeds off of hate, sorrow, insanity, and destruction, which is why it worked out so well. My son grew up and because he had no parental guidance or any idea from right or wrong, he became barbaric. He had raped many women, but my power grandchild comes from my spawn's first mate. His first victim turned out to be much like his mother; weak, hateful, fearful, and insane. Hence, little Gyumaoh; made of 100% evil. He was perfect. Akio could never replace him. His magic, though immensely powerful, is still no match for Gyumaoh. His powers have been severely dampened due to love and human lineage. The demon I mated with was unwilling, but she cared for the child and raised him to be sickeningly honorable. Then he fell in love with human. He didn't deserve to live."
"So what are your plans for Akio?"
"I will drain him of every last drop of his dark magic and throw him into my pit of fire when I am done with him. I will use the extra power to travel to Earth once more to make another grandchild and do it right this time. Then I will take a trip to Houtou Castle and free my grandson myself because that slut of his is taking too long. I will bring him here and with our combined power, all Hell will break loose, rise, and the world will be no more…"
