Crotona was in outskirts of the former city Dharatan. That where she been for the past few months doing her training all alone. She had to be stronger but at the same time something else was going on. Crotona had changed a great deal. Her training had lead herself to find out more about herself and that had lead to her current madness. She was not just Crotona anymore. She was just a being with no name. A lost soul who only knew the monsters she failed to protect. Her sword arched forward slashing down one of the former residents of the city. The demonic monster Kamae had turned them too was nothing more then a creature to be slain to her now.
'That was not bad.' The Voice echoed in her head. She had forgotten the name of the person. But she had confronted them once. She didn't know where. They were other voices too, four others in fact. But they were quiet and faint. She didn't know what they try to say. Even the voice she could hear she hardly listened too. She followed her own voice. As she finished with her killing of the day she began to walk back to where she was living. She needed to get some food. So she could head back into the city for slaughter. The once composed Konatsian was now a wreck, she had not seen other people in months. Only monsters. Only her pained mind to listen to words beyond the symphony of growls and shouts the creature of Dhartan made.

It was here - he could feel it. The Darkness that infected him in his sleep... was present here... Majin Hullac, floats more than a mile in the air, looking down on the vast terrain below. There was a city nearby - and it flowed with the infection. Whatever had happened to this world in his slumber, it must have been cataclysmic in scale. But now - now he would feast on that energy. The grey skinned, emaciated-looking Majin drops straight down, his blue cape whipping overhead as he descends towards the ground.
The area is sparsely populated - but there were beings here. But they were twisted, monstrous things. Whether twisted by the magics unleashed on the lands, or having come through the portals, it mattered not - they were filled with Demonic energies - and Majin Halluc hungered for it. There is a slash-like seam hanging in the air near where he landed, and a six-limbed beast came crawling out of it. At the same time, other wandering beings took notice, and began to approach as well. Perhaps they felt the same darkness steeped within Halluc which gave them pause, but Halluc had no such reservations.
His head tentacle whips forward, and sends a jagged blast of crackling magic at the six-limbed demon! The demon bellows for a moment, and disappears in a puff of grey smoke. When the smoke clears, a multicolored jawbreaker lay in its place! Halluc walks over and retrieves the jawbreaker, and does not hesitate to toss the ball of candy that had once been a demon into his mouth, crunching the candy with a childish enjoyment! Halluc turns to the other demons now sprinting towards him, and smiles, his head tentacle coming forward and flashing with pink magic once again...
In the distance, Crotona may be able to hear the shrieking and bellowing of monstrous voices, and the distant flashes of pink light as the Majin made a meal of the demons, and joyously consumed them and their dark energies...

Crotona head tilted as she heard the vicious cries in the sandy dunes. Her hand gripped on her sword. Her body wanted to rest but her mind? No it didn’t wish to rest. She would rise up and grip her sword as she daggered herself out her cave to face whatever was causing all that chaos. She would stride forward sensing where Hullac was, he was not that far. He was stronger then the other demon’s, here. Those creature were weak but it always seemed those void twisted corpse were unstopable in numbers. They just never seemed to stop. Crotona would eventually arrive in the area to see him turning the corpse into candy. Her eyes lingered for a long moment as if her mind and body conflicted to decide what they would be doing.
Finally however, her body moved. Like a wild animal her sword came down nearly slashing the Majin but it was just angled to cut down where one of the balls of candy to cut it apart. “Consume them? No..that won’t put them out of their misery will it?” They asked. “How does such a magic work.” She pick up one of the halves of candy look upon it. They tilted their head towards Hullac a curious look infused with one of anger. “Tell me how this magic works? Or next time my blade won’t miss.” She would lift the blade out of the ground it glowing with a faint red aura.

Halluc had been enjoying his feast of deviled candies, when a blade came suddenly down to split one of the candies in two! Halluc straightens to his full height, gazing down at the being before him. His head tentacle flips forward as she speaks, allowing the Majin to scent the person.
"...Not meant to put demons out of misery... Meant to feed on them... consume their darkness." Halluc responds, gazing at the sword for a moment. "You lie... You did not miss... cut only what you wanted to cut, and it is small... You did not try to cut me..."
Halluc gazes unblinking at the person. She must be a local - she matched their appearances that he'd seen so far, at least.
"Blade can cut Halluc... but cannot kill Halluc... have been blasted to shreds... still reform." Halluc says, his eyes leaving the blade to focus on Crotona's face. "Evil beings must be eaten... demons make good chocolate... You have darkness if your heart... but is a sad darkness, not evil darkness..."
Halluc picks up one of the chocolate bars that had been a demon, and offers it to Crotona.
"Eat... Demons hurt people... should be humiliated and eaten." he says.
He had not answered Crotona's question of how he had turned them into candy, only verified that he had done so.
'Crotona' listened to Halluac as he explained that he was not going to put the demons out of their misery but he was going to consume their darkness. It was better than nothing they supposed. After a few moments of listening to the words, she gave a nod. "I see, if you're just trying to help then I apologize for attacking you. Not many people try to help this place anymore. They just come here to destroy. Kill our people and leave. And no one from anywhere outside of this place comes to save us. Despite all the work the people of Konats have done to help others." She meant mostly her, but still, that would just sound arrogant. Then again, her current statement already reeked of arrogance. Something she had been given by those she shared minds with.
"I suppose they're a sad darkness in me. But there are many others in darkness too." Crotona said as she decided to find a rock to sit down upon. "There are so many spirits I'm carrying on my back. For some purpose but I don't know what it is. I have just been hunting these monsters that's all I've done for the past few months. Killing all of them to give them peace. Yet, it has not given me peace. It has not given them peace. It only haunted me with the fragment of what they were. The Figments." She put a hand to her face. "And its all my fault this all happened." It was cathartic to talk to someone, anyone. She had not done so for months during her training, during her hunting of these monsters so she let out what she felt to the first person she meet.
