When Moonlight Dragon woke, it found itself in a dark valley. It carefully checked itself and its surroundings. Realizing it had not received severe damage, it stretched its wings and took off to leave the valley. However, it could feel that there was power suppressing it. Looking at its wings, it discovered some dark elements had adhered to the wing. The Dragon was annoyed; it waved its body sideways, trying to shake off the elements.
: Dark elements were restraining Moonlight Dragon.
: Perhaps it was a side effect created by the runestones within it.
After shaking off all the elements on its body. It stretched its wings again to make sure there were no more elements on them. Then it took off and left the valley. Ignoring the barren plateau it saw, the dragon looked towards the direction of Enochian Tower, just to see a broken tower. The magnificent construction had been destroyed in a flash, leaving the dragon unsure of its future...
Moonlight Dragon was walking aimlessly in the wilderness. Feeling itself changed, it could sense a power within — one that did not belong to it, but also one with an unknown origin.
As the captain of an infamous mercenary band, Felix the Cat Duke wandered around the realms of Gods and Demons with his band. Sometimes, they would aid Humans, and sometimes they will fight by the Demons. When they arrived at the desolate plateau, they discovered Moonlight Dragon; within it, they could sense a vast amount of pure energy of dark elements, which had attracted the treasure-hunting warband...
Junior Clown: This thing is just a moving power bank! It would last us quite a while!
Felix the Cat Duke: But I don’t think it’s easy to handle!
Junior Clown: Boss, what should we do then?
Felix the Cat Duke: You take its front!
While Felix was discussing the strategies with his subordinates, Moonlight Dragon discovered them. Sensing a familiar power on the mercenaries, it walked towards them. All of a sudden, they attacked the dragon...
Headless Clown: Stay down!
Headless Clown: Help! Boss!
Moonlight Golem had defeated the mercenaries. He walked to Felix with hostility.
Felix the Cat Duke: Well! You really aren’t easy to handle.
The dragon looked at him silently.
Felix the Cat Duke: My friend, I apologize for the rudeness of my subordinates.
Hearing Felix’s words, the dragon growled and turned away.^ Felix could not help but feel there was something special about the dragon. He ordered his troops to go to the nearest town to recuperate while he followed Moonlight Dragon alone...
At night, when dark elements were most condensed, a voice would echo within Moonlight Dragon. He traced the source of the voice and arrived at the rolling mountains.
Felix the Cat Duke followed the dragon. Its anxiety had bothered Felix. The feeling was just like the one he had felt when he was turned into a cat, leading Felix to think that this may be the way for him to return to his human form. When the dragon arrived at a secluded cave. They were stopped by a priestess and her followers...
The Great Mother of Lust: Outsider, why are you here?
Felix the Cat Duke: My fair lady, we’re just passers-by.
Felix talked to the Priestess before him humbly. The mercenary senses of Felix told him this woman was extremely dangerous; he should not incur her wrath. However, Moonlight Dragon ignored them and walked into the cave as if it was possessed...
The Great Mother of Lust: It seems that you are no passers-by!
The Great Mother of Lust: Alright! Just come in if you want to!
The priestess smiled seductively, which aroused more anxiety within him. He followed the footsteps of the dragon into the cave.
???: ‘Accept me, my son...’
Moonlight Dragon heard the voice again. It stopped so suddenly that Felix walked right into it, falling on the ground. When Felix raised his head, he could only see a big gaping mouth, which was about to swallow both of them.
Faugn, the Horror in the Hills: Roaaaarrr!
Felix could finally understand his anxiety. It was actually the true terror. Seeing the gigantic body of Faugn, he knew he had to run for his life - a real mercenary would always prioritize survival. Therefore, he left the dragon behind and escaped.
Moonlight Dragon looked at Faugn, and felt Faugn’s call, but it could not understand why the Ethereal Dragon summoned it. Then suddenly, Faugn breathed out a purple mist which enveloped Moonlight Dragon’s body. While a power was rushing into Moonlight Dragon’s body, it was swept out of the cave by Faugn’s tail.
Moonlight Dragon was smashed into the forest by a brutal force. Faugn’s great power rendered the golem unable to control itself. It flew to a neighboring village next to the forest and roared at the entrance, causing villagers to escape in fear.
Villager: Help! A monster’s coming!
Village Chief: Protect the weak!
Berserk, Moonlight Dragon shot dark-purple energy beam unstoppingly at everyone, vaporizing many villagers.
Ursula the Dragon Maiden: Stay behind me!
Novalis the Dragon Follower: Ursula! Watch out!
Novalis the Dragon Follower: Darn! I can feel the power of Faugn within this thing!
Amid the massacre, a demi-dragon young man and and maiden appeared to stop him. The maiden tried to calm Moonlight Dragon by sending a message to it using the resonance of dragon power. However, the Dragon had already lost control, it went even more berserk as the maiden’s resonance activated the power of Faugn.
The Dragon was trying to control the two powers within itself, which increased the difficulty the girl faced. The young man immediately came forth upon seeing the situation. He soon defeated Moonlight Dragon with his battle experience. Then he absorbed all of the power within the Dragon, including that of Faugn...
Although the young man absorbed all its power, Moonlight Dragon was still aware of what was happening. It could see the young man argue with the villagers, killing the old and the weak alike. In the end, the two Demi-dragons had no choice but escape. Right after the two left, two other figures entered the village from the entrance.
Nightfall Savant: Humans are indeed selfish creatures!
Nightfall Savant: Although they were saved, they will still condemn those who saved them. They deserve death. Kill them!
Upon hearing the order, the figure behind him dashed forward, destroying the whole village with claws imbued with dark power. The village was soon painted crimson with blood. The only thing left was Moonlight Dragon, which was lying on the bloodstained ground.
Nightfall Savant: I’ve never thought you are still controlled by the dragon. Nevermind,
Nightfall Savant: Come, I will turn you into the strongest weapon.
As the Savant waved his hand, the Dragon was levitated off the ground, disappearing into the shadow with the two.
