" So the one out of three beings that caught our attention is unique if I say so myself. He is the Adopted son of Tatsu, So obviously the boy is a master of martial arts. The only drawback of this boy is ... He's the grandson of Lucifer." A male voice said, every fourth word the sound of gears locking and loosening could be heard.
" Now, Let's bare witness to what Tatsu saw in him at a young age." A female voice interjected before the sound of mysterious liquid being poured into a glass.
" This is the Speechless Demon of the outlands?" A voice said, questioning whoever was before them. The tone kept shifting to masculine to feminine with every word.
They stared at a young male chained to the ground, ensuring their safety for the time being. A Obsidian mask concealed his face, neglecting him the pleasure of seeing who's before him.
This male had a mixture of light and dark shaggy gray hair, strands of the hair rested on the mask. He wore a regular black trench with cleaned white bandages wrapping around from his stomach to his chest. The last thing was slick black pants with what seemed to be like casual shoes for an assassin.
" I'll force you to speak... You filthy maggot." The voice spoke again, drawing closer to the young man. The sounds of their footsteps was able to help him determine how far they were from one another. A stench of tobacco filled the air, signifying the person talking enjoyed smoking.
" SPEAK!" The voice shouted, rising in pitch before they used their right foot to kick the male in the center of his mask.
The male leaned back, feeling the chains tighten around his wrist as he was jerked forward. He knew that the slightest movement would continue to tighten the chains.
" Get me my tools." The voice said until three quick claps echoed wherever the two were.
There was about three sets of feet while the sounds of metal clanked against one another.
" After I get the first hit, Proceed to beat him till he makes a sound." The voice said, walking away from him so that they could decide on what to use.
After a brief five minutes of bickering, The person decided on their weapon and it was normal. They grabbed a regular construction hammer, blood dripping from the handle. Each drop of blood echoed in the male's mind like a timer.
" Now you'll speak or have brain damage!" The person shouted once again, getting close before slamming the hammer in the area the male's left eye would be located.
A small crack formed around where his eye was and it seemed to not have fazed him at all.
" They're going to die Luna, Hiring people that are being hunted for money. " A male voice said, the exact same one from the beginning and it was obvious that these conversations were in two different areas.
" It's easier hiring them without them knowing that their death is eminent." A female voice spoke, giving it off that this was Luna. She spoke slow yet seductive.
The person didn't hesitate to use the hammer again, crashing it in the exact spot again. The male lowered his head, grinning underneath the mask. There was small pieces of the mask falling onto the ground, granting him sight which made the moment worse for them.
He started to raise his head, making eye contact with the person who assaulted him.
" Those beautiful Snow white eyes... I'll make sure to copy you after death." The person said, shifting through different appearances they've obtained over time.
In the blink of an eye, The male was gone from everyone's line of sight. The chains that restrained him bounced off the ground, leaving a small cloud of dust.
" Deno, Come out and play with me." The shapeshifter said, looking all around him except behind him.
Deno was now standing behind him, ignoring the other people around him. He maintained his focus on the matter at hand, feeling the persons movement quickly change through the vibrations on the ground.
Deno started turning around, grabbing ahold of the person's right hand which was holding the hammer. He was now staring down them with both his eyes. In the two seconds of being gone from their field of you, He was able to craft a hole for his right eye to see out of.
" D-Deno, I was only doing what I was paid to do...." They said, trying to make him feel pity.
There was zero hesitation in his body, kicking the shifters right kneecap inwards. He watched him fall forward, quickly grabbing from underneath his jaw while keeping a firm grip on it.
" Tatsu mentioned, In hostile moments... Deno can either act calm or make it worse for whoever faces him." Luna said, taking a drink of whatever was in her glass.
Deno tilted his head, staring deep into their brown eyes before noticing someone running up behind him through the reflection of the persons eye. He turned around, maintaining a hold on the person until a sword pierced straight through their body.
Blood splashed against his coat, agitating him more than he already was. He used his left hand to grab ahold of the blade, jerking it and the wielder forward resulting in the entire blade to go through except the handle.
" W-Wait..." The shifter said, choking on their blood before noticing four bounty posters on the inside of Deno's trench coat.
" You are a bounty hunter...." They said, seeing no emotion through his eyes.
Deno quickly turned around, moving his right hand in and out of his coat pocket. He slowly raised his arm, blocking an attack by another one of his targets. A single spark caught the attackers attention, noticing a single bronze brass knuckle protecting him.
Deno pushed up against the sword, taking a step forward as he crashed his fist into the male's stomach. He followed up with sweeping his legs resulting in his opponent falling backward while losing grip on their weapon.
" S-Stop I have a family!" The man shouted out before landing on his back, tears starting to swell up in his eyes until the sword came crashing down. The sword was grabbed by Deno, tightening his grip around the handle before slamming it straight through the male's mouth.
When it passed through his mouth, The ground beneath him cracked in six different locations. This alone showed everyone that Deno doesn't care if you have a family, killing innocent people to get by in life marks you as his priority targets.
The last two were in shock, realizing too late that this job wasn't for money but for a display of strength.
" GET ME OUT OF —" The woman was silenced, noticing blood running down from her forehead. There was an electrical spark spazzing out around the top of her head until her entire body was electrified.
" A-A copper coin cased in electricity, He's a lightning manipulator...." The man said, slowly removing the sword from his companions body as he watched their corpse fall onto the ground.
" Will he make his final kill impactful or quick and clean." Luna said, taking her time to refill her glass. She paused for a second, noticing the Lucifer's family crest through his clothing.
" Another pathetic family member of mine." Luna said, throwing her glass onto the floor in anger.
The male tightened his left fist, igniting a small Ruby flame that engulfed his left fist. He narrowed his eyes upon Deno, taking a step forward. There was saliva erupting from his mouth, showing Deno that he's afraid and not maintaining focus in this situations
" BURN IN HELL!!!!!" The man shouted, releasing a regular sized fireball at Deno.
Everything beneath the mans feet shattered, showing everyone his strength as the fireball grew in size while drawing closer to Deno.
Deno shook his head, staring down the ball of fire as he raised his left arm. He opened his hand at the last second to catch the ball while the heat of it crashed against his body.
" YOU UNDERESTIMATE ME!" He shouted, charging from behind the fireball as it was easily destroyed before his eyes.
There was something preventing the man from getting closer to Deno, slowly glancing behind him to witness hands emerge from his own shadow. There was about six hands, Two on each leg while the last two had a grip on his shoulders.
" S-Shadow Magic?!" He said, trying to break free from the hands but he didn't have the strength to do so.
In that moment, A small ruby flame ignited in the palm of his right hand. He closed his hand, squeezing it tightly until the fire consumed his entire right arm.
" The power to have three strong magic types means this was over from the very beginning." The man said, noticing the fire suddenly disperse before electricity started conducting on his bare feet. He happened to blink during this, watching Deno close the gap between them in what seemed like a second.
The young male smirked underneath his mask, tightening his right fist as his entire right arm was engulfed in ruby fire just like before. He crashed his fist against the man's face, sending the fire straight through his body until Deno believed he had enough.
" END MY SUFFERING!" The man shouted out, blood and saliva escaping his lips before turning into steam.
Deno diminished the fire, grabbing hold of the man's shaggy blonde hair. He twisted himself around, taking a step forward with his left leg.
The man was launched approximately twenty feet ahead of Deno before catching a glimpse of his entire body conducting electricity.
All of sudden, Deno was gone from the man's line of sight until a fist emerged out of thin air right before his eyes. The fist crashed against his face, blood escaping his nostrils and mouth.
" S-Such speed..." He muttered beneath the mouthful of blood.
Deno was now standing in the direction the man was falling before grabbing ahold of his throat. He lifted him up to see the pain and fear in his eyes. He released him, watching his body slowly fall to the ground and waited for the exact moment to strike.
Luna covered her mouth, noticing Deno's eyes flicker a dark shade of crimson for a split second.
" His power is still locked at the age of sixteen even though he's executing this with a leveled head." She said, getting closer to the orb that was showing Leo and her everything that has occurred up to this moment.
Deno rolled up his sleeves, revealing scars on both of his arms but on his left arm was a lightning bolt tattoo that seemed to spread to his elbow. He took a deep breath before crashing his right fist against his chest, hearing four ribs crack and continued punching his chest.
" SUFFER IN PURGATORY!!!" The man shouted at Deno, noticing how the young man was aiming for his pressure points so that the pain would stop. He was twisted in the air, catching a glimpse of what seemed to be a rapier plummeting down from above.
The man noticed Deno appear right behind the rapier, watching him give it an extra boost of speed. The weapon had a ring of smoke appearing around the handle just before it crashed through the man's chest.
" ...." The man had nothing to say, witnessing a bolt of lightning come crashing down from the sky and onto the handle of the rapier.
Deno showed no emotions upon this man's death, watching his body burn to a crisp from the heat created by the lightning bolt. He grabbed ahold of the handle to the rapier, feeling the electricity course throughout his body before dispersing the magic by force.
" There's no deny, He'll be a worthy addition if I say so myself." Leo said, staring at the orb with a smile as his gears started to lock and release. He pulled out a cigar, lighting the end with a lighter.
" Next is Ikuta, Let's see how this proclaimed Assassin does against these odds." Luna said, revealing a sinister smile before taking a swig out of her wine bottle.
