Chapter 1 : Minotaur
Jujo sat on his chair scratching an itch when his wall was smashed down, he jumped back and in the midst of the smoke a woman emerged.
“P-p-please don’t kill me! I’ll give you all of my money!” Jujo sat on his knees, he then noticed that there wasn’t a single weapon in the woman's hands which meant she broke his wall with her fists!
“Shut up Heracles, don’t tell me you’ve forgotten me!” she says
“Heracles? No, I'm Jujo, also I've never met you before.” He says confused, when suddenly the ground next to him crumbles, he takes this as a sign to run away. He stands up but is pinned down by the woman in nanoseconds, she lights a cigarette and punches him. It was so powerful that his skull was cracked, letting out a scream of pain, he kicks her off of him and booked it.
“Heracles don’t run away!” she said sprinting after Jujo, Jujo dodges under a lunge she commits letting him gain the upper hand. He finally makes it to the door that leaves his house and dashes out of it. Behind him the entire building is broken by the woman jumping out of it, Jujo runs down the street next to the main road. Behind him the woman comes killing every human that gets in her way, Jujo stops running and prepares for a punch, he lunges forward to try and land it but she twists his arm off before slamming him to the ground.
“Wow, Heracles I know you’re currently in human form but I thought that you’d be stronger” Jujo then regains consciousness and through all of the blood he stands up and punches the woman, it does no damage but she gets angry, in a split second everything in a 5km radius got destroyed except for Jujo and the woman.
“I’m pissed” she says as her arm grows in size multiple times, she slams that fist onto Jujo and half of his body flies off. Then randomly his legs stand up and get reattached, and his lost arm as well, he realizes that all of his wounds have been healed too.
“Ptoo! I always hated your regeneration, but now you’re in human form I can win Heracles!” She charges for Jujo and hits him blank point and his head flies off, but he grabs her arm and snaps a finger. His head is reattached and he jumps into the air, The woman obliterates his body into nothing but it regenerates and he shoves his hand down her throat. In all of the vomit he grabs her heart and crushes, the second before she dies she lets out a massive AOE attack that made Jujo not exist anymore but he came back. He stood in a pool of blood wondering what had just happened, he was even more confused about his powers. He looks around himself and at his destroyed city and starts walking, that event happened on The 5th Of July 2023, but the start of the main story starts on The 4th Of September 2025.
Jujo sits in a cafe on his phone when a man in a trenchcoat walks in, Jujo pays no attention to him. Behind the man comes a lady dressed in very expensive clothing, she turns and walks over to Jujo and at her sight Jujo replies.
“Oh! Avie you made it!”
“You thought that I wouldn’t?”
“Well you have a history of not”
“Anyway Jujo, what did you call me here for?” She proceeds to sit down in front of him.
“I’ve got some more information on what happened to me 2 years ago”
“Last night I went out for a walk when I saw a fight. I thought it was gangsters but I looked closer and there were beasts to put it simply. Well, have you played Dark souls?”
“Shit, well basically it was a humanoid snake in armor, and that monster was fighting what was basically an axe-wielding minotaur.”
“It gets crazier, The minotaur noticed me and threw its axe and chopped off my arm. Of course, it grew back… But that stare it gave me as it proceeded to rip what is basically a snake man in half, shook me to my core. I felt like if I had stayed there for a second more I would have died, I felt that even though I’m immortal… Monsters are currently in London, monsters that are too strong”
“That was deep, so whatchu plan to do”
“I want to track it down and kill it. And hey if it has strong defense, I’m immortal so I just need the smallest bit of damage and it’s game over for him.”
“But what if you do no damage to him”
“Then I’m fucked”
“Don’t make it sound so bleak”
“Anyway, what will you do bout’ it?”
“I’ll tell my dad, he’s the brains of the company, he'll figure something out” They both stood up from their seats and walked out of the cafe.
“My place is free tonight, since you can’t be in your house today”
“Sure, beats the hotel.” They continued down the street and got into their own cars, Jujo zoomed off in his car. He arrived at his house and entered, a few seconds afterward he got a knock on his door, he took off his coat and opened the door. A massive man probably 7 foot or more in a trenchcoat stood in his doorway,
“May I come in?” he asks.
“No, I don’t know you.”
“Really? Well that's fine Heracles.” he turned around and started to walk away.
“WAIT! That’s what that monster woman called me, how do you know it?!”
“Interested now are we?” He turns around “She has a name y’know, Hera, your mother”.
“W-what do you mean?!” Jujo responds,
“I heard you grew up in an orphanage because you were left on the steps of the place. Well Hera hated you so she did that and hit it from your father claiming a miscarriage”
“That’s true… So then tell me who’s my father?”
“Stop bull-shitting then that’d make me a-”
“Yes , you’re a god. You’re probably more familiar with the Roman version of your name, Hercules.”
“What, that makes no sense!”
“Every god has an average lifespan of 150 years, unless you become a supreme god then you’re immortal. When a god dies they’re born as a normal human and have to unlock their god powers again.”
“J-just who are you!?”
“Me? Oh I’m Hermes, messenger of the gods.”.
“Come in.” Hermes entered his house and sat down, taking off his trenchcoat. Underneath seemed like an elderly man “hey Hermes how old are you”
“Damn” Jujo sat in front of Hermes and asked “so what’s with my regeneration? That wasn't in any of the Hercules stories.”
“Yes attacks hurt your human body but they wouldn't hurt your astral body, so whenever you get damaged you basically reset because you aren’t supposed to be damaged. And if a being appears that would be able to harm your astral body then you yourself would be damaged.”
“What’s with this astral stuff? Well there is another realm called the astral realm, and basically gods are incarnations of astral beings. So for someone to hurt a god they’d need to breach the astral realm.”
“Although we need you Heracles, if you can master your true power and use it against us every god would die. So will you join the gods?”
“Let’s just say that Hera messed up. I would have if she didn’t attack me, so do me a favor Hermes and fuck off” There was a pause, then Hermes jumped onto the table with a knife ready to stab him, but Jujo let’s it stab his hand using this he punched Hermes onto the floor. He grabbed the knife out of his hand and threw it at Hermes, piercing his neck, Jujo watched him gag up blood and die. He looks at his hand and the wound hasn’t healed, he decides to look for the monsters and kill them.
5 hours later.
A knock appears on Jujo’s door
“Jujo? Are you there? Hmm. I’m letting myself in!” Avie opens the door and goes to the kitchen where she finds the scene, she screams and falls backwards onto the floor, “n-no! How could he have- NO!”
Jujo enters the Hither green cemetery, it has just gone dark so no one will see what’ll happen. Then just as he suspected a monster jumped down from a tree, it was a pink blob with dozens of faces, all of them having blood streaming out of their eyes. He jumps forward, but its flesh becomes pointed and impales Jujo’s stomach, he vomits up some blood. Out of nowhere he grabs its flesh and bites it, tearing through it so he could get back on the ground. The monster screams as multiple spikes are formed, he dodges them imprecisely, getting a few hits. Just as he was about to land a blow he got impaled again, but he was so close so he resorts to ripping off his own finger and throwing it on one of the creatures eyes. He then uses the spiked edge to cut open its belly and let its guts pour onto the floor, he then shoves his hand up the open wound grabbing its tongue and ripping it out backwards. He is soaked in so much blood that you can’t see his face, he continues walking in the cemetery when 5 jump down. One tries to attack him with spikes but he dodges it making it impale it’s comrade, he uses the spike as a rope to pull it closer then he shoves his fist onto it’s head so hard he can grab the brain and squash it. He turns around and gets impaled, before one sneaks up behind him and impales him. Then they morph their flesh around him, taking advantage of the fact he’s inside it he rips the thing to shreds from inside out.
“2 down 3 to go” he says as he grabs one and pulls out the knife that he used on Hermes to gouge an eye out, he then cuts off the top half of the creature.
“3 down 2 to go” He looks at the two remaining monsters before he collapses from losing to much blood, but he stands up, delirious he charges kicking one in the face before stabbing inside it’s mouth the kill the brain, he coughs up blood and looks at the final one, it's different from the others, it's got two mouths and a horn. He goes to punch it, before trying to kick the top of its head but the horn is so sharp it impales his leg, then a spike pierces his neck. Blood starts gushing from every hole in his body, some pores even begin leaking. But he grabs his knife and stabs it right in the head killing it, he stays in place knowing that if he removes the spike he’ll die. He can’t see anymore with the blood gushing from his eyes, he tilts his head upwards so no blood can get out, then he hears…
“Are we done already?!” He looks to see the minotaur,
“No, I don’t care if I die as long as I kill you first!” Jujo dashed over to the minotaur, but as he touched it his bottom half fell off onto the ground.
