Chapter 1: King of Monsters
Episode 1: The End
London, once a beautiful city now lain to waste and littered with the corpses of humans and monsters alike. In the midst of this gruesome scene stood one man, a tall figure draped in a deep black cloak, The King of Monsters, Ryu Akshin. Before Ryu Akshin was a Japanese man wearing medieval plate armour. Kazumki Akio, a handsome golden haired man with icy blue eyes, was crouched over a Japanese woman.
Akio looked down at the woman Akabane Kira, a Flame haired woman with ruby coloured eyes. “Come on Kira. You have to get up!” He shook her as if to stir her from a deep sleep. A deep royal purple replaced the red in her veins of her cold and limp body. "Kira wake up!" Akio shook her once more to no avail.
“Why…” Akio's face went blank. “Why?. Why do all of this?.. You could have protected us! You could have saved so many of these people had you only fought with them!”
“Even if I had access to my full army of Monsters This would have been impossible to stop.” Akshins voice was grating and rough. It was as if someone were scraping a blade against stone. "You were the Hero. Why couldn't you stop them."
“Because even if I was a "Hero" you were stronger!" Akio had a hard time admitting it, but it was the truth.
Akshin began giggling. “There it is! Finally!” Akshin threw back his head with a laugh. "Everything I did was worth it for those words" Akshin looked back towards Akio with his face revealed. A once handsome face now marred by scars from beast and sword alike. Akshin's void black Irises and pitch black hair coupled with his pale skin made Akshin look like a ghost or perhaps a demon.
“Yokai..” Akio stared at Akshin’s face.
“I am no Ghost or Spirit or Demon Akio” Akshin took a stomping step forward with each word crushing bones and bodies beneath his heel. “I..” Akshin lips curled into a disgusting and evil grin "I am a King". As Akshin took a step he landed on Kira’s limp hand. A black mist pours from under Akshin's cloak and seems into the corpses around. "And you're but a measly Knight in my way" As Akshin spoke, broken and dismembered bodies start to stand.
"Stop this Akshin! It's not too late!" Akio pleaded. "We can bring the world bac-"
"Stop with that hopeful nonsense! The world is ruined, Akio! There is no point in remaining here. I'd rather rot in hell as I am than wander the earth alone." Akshin didn't give Akio any more time to talk. He commanded the undead soldiers towards Akio. He decided to make the already ruined London into his battleground.

Akio stood triumphantly over Akshin piercing his heart with his Longsword, Dawn's Edge. The ground rumbled as buildings fell and Akshin spat blood from his mouth. Big Ben collapsed in the background finally leveling all of London.
“Why didn’t you summon your Commanders. We both know I would have stood no chance against them” Akio released the grip on his sword letting Akshin fall to his knees. "I would be but a pebble in front of your Fox"
Akshin coughed and blood ran down his lip. “They didn't need to die with us,” Akshin sighed softly. "After all even if I had won I would have ended myself soon after"
Akio slowly dropped to his knees and blood ran from his tear ducts as his skin became a purple colour. Akio would use a skill, but he ran out of energy. "Poison huh.."
“Looks like it's the end for us both. I hope you get reincarnated as a squirrel” Akshin let out his final words with a laugh as both men collapsed to the ground, Death's embrace held them tight, but quickly loosened as a light shone through the darkness.
[Congratulations. You have Awakened]
[Class Assignment.. Complete]
What’s going on?
A voice called out from the darkness. “wa..” The voice got closer. “Wake up!”
Akshin’s eyes shot open and he gasped holding his chest where he was impaled. Akshin quickly looked around before recognizing his surroundings "What the hell?"
