Drusilla started to look around to figure out where she was. It was very clear that she had already got an explanation on Vaxalyn seeing as she wasn't freaking out when looking at him. He most likely explained that he was an angel.
Vaxalyn told her, "You washed up near the coast of our village. You're actually not that far away from Leptis Magna. It's about half a day to a day and a half's journey to the northwest. Can you tell us how you ended up floating in the water almost drowning to death?"
Drusilla started to think, and as she did she seemingly remembered something important that terrified her. She tried to get up but the moment she stood she almost fell clearly still somewhat light-headed from almost drowning. Charlemagne caught her and tried to calm her, "Hold up. You're in no condition to go anywhere just yet. Tell us what's wrong and we'll try our best to help."
She frantically started crying, "My mama and papa! The soldiers chained them up and took them to a different part of the ship! I need to help them!"
Vaxalyn told her, "Absolutely not. In your current state if you try to walk more than 10ft you'll pass out. Now calm down and answer me clearly. Do you know where the ship was headed I might be able to go and save them?"
She started tearing up more and tried to tell him as best as she could, "To.... To Regio Syrtica.... They were going to sell them." She started crying uncontrollably which no one could blame her for as she was still just a child who just lost her parents and almost died.
Charlemagne tried to comfort her and dry her eyes. Vaxalyn told him in the tribe's language, "They are most likely going to the nearest slave market accessible by port. Normally I wouldn't mind going in and setting them free but it would be hard to do with how I currently look however I'm the most qualified. If I save them and people report that I was seen there they would most definitely link it back to us. However if we do nothing it would be safer for the tribe, but we would have no way of knowing whether or not this young girl's parents would live to see you next week once they have been sold into slavery."
Charlemagne looked at him and asked seriously, "What does your heart tell you that we should do?"
Vaxalyn thinking of the situation like a battle became conflicted. On one hand doing nothing for her parents would by the village more time before the Romans most definitely decide to try and attack the village again. But on the other hand he was an angel and he believes in helping those in need that deserve it. After a moment of stressful consideration he answered, "We should help her parents but not just them. We also should help the other people who were enslaved for have kids with magic. Not to mention we should also help free the kids that were taken by these whoresons."
Charlemagne agreed, "That's what I was hoping you would say. I think it would be easier if I went in to do some reconnaissance and you hid outside and waited for my signal. I won't get spotted as easily especially if I cover most of my body and make myself look like a peasant. If I hid my birthmarks then I will go unnoticed and can seek around easier."
Vaxalyn agreed but was not happy with the idea, "It definitely could work and is much easier to pull off then me doing any kind of rescue. However I don't like the idea of putting you in direct harm if you get caught. No matter your capabilities I'm still your father and I'm still going to be worried about your own safety. If the seal had not been broken on me or your mother I would have easily suggested one of us handle it."
Charlemagne gave him a look and said, "No one told either of you to break your seals. Only to stop holding back."
"It was a heat of the moment type of thing," he laughed at himself a bit and the 2 nodded at it.
Charlemagne looked at Drusilla and spoke in African Latin once more, "My father and I will try to go and recuse your parents. I need you to relax your mind and think on what your parents look like that way I'll be able to see who to look for."
She looked very confused but she focuses as best as you can on her mother and father and what they look like. Charlamagne uses Minor Telepathy to peer into her head and sees the surface memory she has that shows her family. Once he knew what they look like he gave her a nod and grabbed his new spear and sword. His mother had gave them to him after his spear was burned to ashes and one of the swords was taken from one of the soldiers he had killed as a trophy.
Charlemagne motioned to his father to follow and before they could leave the hut his mother had returned. Drusilla seemed unnerved by her given that she was a demon but also captivated by her beauty. Once she saw Charlemagne and his father begin talking to her in a polite end friendly way she knew that the woman was no threat.
Hinami looked to Charlemagne and her husband and asked, "Are you both about to go hunting?" Vaxalyn answered while giving her a look that she knew very well, "No. Got some people who need saving."
She wondered, "Is it the girl's family?" They both nodded and she understood. She asked, "Do you need me to come with you or should I stay here and make sure the girl recovers?"
Vaxalyn replied worried for Drusilla after hearing the argument between some of the villagers earlier, "Look after her. She still needs to recover and she's terrified at what happened to her not to mention she's worried that her parents are about to get sold into slavery. She needs a caretaker and someone who actually wants her to be here to watch out for her while the two of us try and go save her family."
Hinami nodded in agreement with what he had said but before letting them go she told them, "When you both get back we will need to have a long discussion about what I just heard from Chief Wakababii." Both men gave her a nod and Charlemagne walked out of the hut. His father took a moment just to give her a kiss before leaving. Making sure that his wife knew he would try and make sure they both will return safe and sound.
Both men immediately started making their way towards Tripoli. They chose to run instead of fly mainly because Charlemagne could not fly for too long, and he was not as fast in the air as his father who had the advantage of having wings.
Both men were nearly a hundred times faster than a normal human when they ran easily if not more if they really put some power behind it. Moving as fast as they could while conserving stamina they started making some real distance. Easily moving fast as a race car going at full speed.
A trip that usually took about half a day to almost 2 days to get there by foot for them only took about an hour and a half. Once they were on the outside of the city, they found a place where his father could get a good vantage point without getting spotted and a hidden enough spot for Charlemagne to try and disguise himself.
Charlemagne examined his spells for a moment to see what would be best in this moment. He needed something that lasted long and would make it near impossible for people to recognize him. So he definitely decided on one of his newer spells that he had been practicing since he woke up. With the snap of a finger he cast Disguise on himself and made himself look like his previous human self from back when he was fighting in World War 3 except he was now wearing Roman clothing.
This was the first time he look like his previous self since being reborn. Even if he looked nearly identical to his old self in this new life, he still missed being an actual adult with a full beard and having a more well designed physique. When his father saw him he was slightly enraptured by this older looking version of his son without any of the birthmarks.
Knowing that the clothing that he had on that others could see was an illusion and his real clothing was actually hidden underneath the illusion; he had his sword and shortspear in his real clothing. He looked to his father and gave him a thumbs up before making his way over towards the gate to the city. He made sure to adjust the illusory version that people saw of him to give himself much paler skin green eyes and light brown hair so that he looked more like a potential half Roman half Libyan man.
When Charlemagne was close enough to the gate the soldiers stopped him and started to look him over for star shaped birthmarks. They immediately noticed he was a full grown man who looked almost 30; meaning he was far too old for what they were searching for. He was then asked in African Latin, "What is it that you have come to the city for?"
Charlemagne lied but made sure that it was extremely believable given that he was trained how to lie well during his training as a soldier, "My father sent me to take a look at that slaves for sell on the slave market today and see if any are worth his coin. I'm rather new to the city, but I was told this is where the nearest slave market was. Could you tell me in which direction I would need to go to find what I'm looking for?"
His lies seem to work on them and they were a little bit hesitant at first but then they started giving him directions to the slave market. They also note that a new ship just arrived with fresh slaves for him to look over.
With those directions he begins making his way directly there while also making sure to avoid as many watchful eyes as necessary. He knew his disguise lasted for about 5 hours, but if he was going to free these slaves he would need to make sure that he struck from the shadows and struck hard. Not to mention he also needed to try and figure out where the kidnapped children with magic were being held.
Using his knowledge espionage and covert combat tactics and strategy he began looking for any place of interest that seems like it would be a good place to hide such children. He made sure to avoid all eye contact and stick to the shadows to avoid being seen in the first place. Eventually he found a part of the city where a group of young children were being taken to by soldiers that looked like a prison house. With his eyes he could easily spot some of their birthmarks and knew that he had found what he was looking for. He marked its location in his mental map of the city so he knew to come back here later.
From there he continued following the directions and it wasn't much further than maybe a 10-minute walk from where the children were being held that the slave market had been set up in this town. There he could see almost 3 dozen people being sold and almost 2 dozen more that were in the process of being prepared to be sold.
He hanged back but stayed out enough in the open for the slaves on sale to be able to see him. He immediately used Minor Telepathy to start entering the mind of the closest slave to him. He could feel the fear this slave had at the idea of being taken from their homes having their children taken from them and now being forced into slavery. He started reading the minds of each of the slaves on sale and it all was about the same with what they were thinking.
Once he knew this was the consensus of them all, he knew that he did not have much of a way to free them without causing conflict. He searched around a little for the minds of Drusilla's parents and eventually found them being stripped of their clothes and beaten for failing to comply. The sight made him sick to his stomach and angry.
Without much thought he immediately dropped his disguise after walking behind some crates that were stacked up cutting off view from everyone else. He cast the spell Electric Slide simply for the boost to speed that it gave him. In an instant he became a blur followed by a brief trail of electricity. With his sword and the speed and momentum it gave him and his control over it he severed the heads of all of the slave auctioneers, and broke the shackles of those bound and chained for sale. With his spear he impaled the man beating Drusilla's parents through the back of the chest and the momentum sent the man flying off of the spear. He then used that same speed to slaughter all of the soldiers and guards in that area and to take their weapons. He tossed the weapons down in front of each of those that had been enslaved and he stood in the center of everyone.
For him that whole scene was only a couple of minutes but to everyone else it was only barely 5 seconds. As people began running and screaming in terror Charlamagne shouted to the now freed slaves, "Do you want your children back?! Do you want to punish those who took them from you and try to sell you away like you were nothing?! Are you willing to fight for your family?! For your lives?! For your freedom?! Take up the arms that I have given you and fight against your captors, against your enslavers! I know where your children are and if you want them back follow me! If you want your freedom then you must fight for it!"
Some of them looks terrified for a moment at the display of how easily he was able to dispatch so many people. But many saw this as a chance for vengeance and to save their family members. Drusilla's father hearing these words got up to his feet completely naked but not caring as he picked up the sword of the man that was beating him ready to fight to rescue his child. Her mother grabbed a shield and held it close to her body so people would not stare at her as she was nude.
The rest of those that were enslaved after realizing the opportunity they had been given took up their arms as well. With blades and spears in hand they were willing to follow and to fight.
As more soldiers and guards charged into the area hearing the screams and emotions of those that had already fled; Charlemagne used his Deathsight for the first time actively. As he saw millions of ways to easily kill every single enemy that stood in front of him he found the most optimal way of doing so as swiftly as possible. Reactivating Electric Slide, he charged forward and slaughtered every soldier in his way while carving a path for the people to follow. He made sure to protect those following him if any soldiers came from the sides that looked too great of a number for them to handle with their lack of training.
Together they fought their way back to where the children had been taken and held. As the soldiers guarding the building were getting ready to charge at them Charlemagne stopped and pointed his finger up. Using Minor Pyro Manipulation he sent off a single beam of fire that exploded in a decently sized firework knowing it would catch his father's attention. Like clockwork his father landed between him and the soldiers who had closed most of the distance and greeted them with his blade.
Vaxalyn easily cutdown the soldiers and protected the freed slaves while Charlemagne went to free the children. Charlemagne rushed in to save the kids but saw something that enraged him greatly.
In the year 2055, the world is in chaos as World War 3 is in full swing and has been growing worse and worse over the span of the last 5 years. A lieutenant of the United States Army by the name of Charlemagne Ignis and the last 8 that remains of his platoon after the rest of their squadron was slaughtered fight to the very end until nuclear bombs begin raining from the sky. Right when the bomb is about to hit and all of them are about to die time seems to freeze and Charlamagne is given an offer by an unknown being calling itself God. He can die here, or he can be transported to a world like his Earth but with magic and monsters and potentially find a way to save humanity from death by nuclear fire. Only after accepting the deal from the mysterious entity that offered it, he learned that there was a bit more to the world and to the deal than he initially thought. Finding that the world was similar to some of the video games that he had played in his youth and that he was reborn as a Nephilim made him start to question whether or not he was really alive or just dreaming it all up before dying. With a whole world to explore and several mysteries to uncover, Charlemagne would immediately set out to try and figure out how this world worked and who the entity was really that offered him this deal.
