"As the leader of the Order of Darkness, I dub thee, Azith, an Ebon Knight, and controller of...whats it called...Oh yes, Darkness, Controller of Darkness" The old black dragon said getting several of the few who were watching to put their heads down in embarrassment. Then after being handed a helm of pitch black, he placed it upon Azith's head, completing a dark set of armor that covered the red dragon's entire body, aside from the wings. Once the 'ceremony' was over, everyone began to leave the small church like building out into the middle of the night.
"Azith, follow me." said another Knight clad in similar armor over to Azith, who was just leaving the building.
"I know about your dimwitted teacher not giving you a proper weapon, despite how good you are with practically everything. So now that your fully-fledged and out of his hands, I figured I'd give you a proper weapon" The knight said leading him somewhere through the dark.
"Ok then, If you insist" Came the dark voice of Azith, following his dark armored colleague through a field of grass, eventually coming across a cellar like door hidden among the tall grass. Opening up the cellar, the dark knight walked inside motioning for Azith to follow.
"Have a look around, you have quite a lot to choose from" The dark knight said leading Azith to a weapons storage. Taking a look through all the weapons, Azith was simply amazed by how so many could fit in one tiny little cellar. Eventually getting over his intrigue, he gave a good look through all the weapons, eventually seeing a quite thin two handed broadsword. Taking it off of the rack, he unsheathed it and swung it around a few times, he sheathed it and placed it upon his back, right between both of his wings that were poking out of his armor.
"Now you look like an Ebon knight, now go reak some havoc for me 'k." The dark knight said leaving Azith to go wherever he wished. Leaving the weapons cellar, Azith thanked the knight one last time before leaving to go and explore the world, or where ever he may want to go, beginning his journey by stumbling upon a trodden path, beginning his long journey into the night.
"Darkness Is coming! We're all going to die!" An old dragon yelled running away as fast as he could possibly go.
"I was only asking for directions!" Azith yelled towards the old dragon, who couldn't hear him. Sitting down on the trodden path, he pondered his entire situation.
"I would have never became an Ebon Knight if I knew everyone hated us so much" Azith said to himself gritting his Ivory teeth under his helm. "Maybe then I wouldn't be so lost"
Azith's train of bad thought was interrupted when he heard a loud scream coming from the forest. Deciding to check it out, the armored red dragon ran through the forest as fast he could to reach the voice.
"Aw, your such a cute little girl when you scream like that." A Grey dragon said getting a laugh from his brown scaled friend, who was holding a green dragoness in a hold she couldn't get out of.
The Grey dragon taunted her a little more before grabbing her body, getting another scream from her. Deciding that Action needed to be taken, Azith called upon dark magicks that he had been honing for years, and summoned two gruesome skeletal hands out of the ground grabbing a hold of both the Grey and brown dragons.
"What, whats going on, How did this happen!" The Grey one ranted pointlessly trying to get out of the hands unbreakable grip on him. The brown one simply sat in silence awaiting something to happen.
"Are you hurt?" Azith asked the green dragoness coming out from behind the shadows. The dragoness seemed a little shocked at the skeletal hands from the ground and didn't move.
"Hello? Are you in frozen shock or something?" Azith asked trying to get an answer out of the dragoness, who simply shook her head.
"Monster" The green dragoness said staring at the ground "what kind of monster are you?"
"Monster? What do you mean? I do something for you and you call me a monster, What is it that everyone hates about Ebon Knights anyways?" Azith said pondering.
"Ebon Knights are not allowed to be in the kingdom, shouldn't you know that?" The dragoness said.
"Im not allowed in the kingdom? I'm sorry lady, but I haven't been a mile away from where I was born, I dont know much about your kingdom" Azith said a little confused.
"Ever since the paladin order became a part of our kingdom, Ebon knights are not allowed in." The dragoness said crossing her arms.
"Ruin my dreams much, all I wanna do is explore the world I haven't seen and you go and burst my bubble like that, thats just mean." Azith said crossing his arms and looking away.
"Ok fine then, you can come with me to the Kingdom if you dont cause any trouble." The dragoness said trying to get on even ground with the Ebon knight.
"Alright, My names Azith, What might be yours?"
"Esith, why does your name sound so familiar?"
"Dunno, maybe you've got a cousin with a similar name."
"Are you seriously going to just leave us here like this!! You bastard!" The grey dragon yelled at Azith still trying to get out of the skeleton hand's grip.
"Oh, shut up, youll be out of there in three days or so" Azith said getting a small smile from Esith
"Follow me" Esith said leading the way for Azith, who was looking at pretty butterflies all through the way heading up to the great kingdom of which Esith was a part of, and which Azith would be damned. Either way, It's going to be one hell of an adventure for Azith.
