"It is in their nature to hate us for what we are." He said quietly. His entire body was relaxed, but his eyes glowed as though with fire. "Do not worry yourself, milady." He smiled and it was a thing of cool hatred. "Unfortunately for the Paladins, we happen to have every demon lord of significance here with us tonight." He smiled sweetly at his lady. "Would you like to watch milady?"
His fingernails, already sharpened into claws, grew a bit with magic and shone an unnatural way. Golden light began to circle him as he laid a gentle hand on her cheek. "I will protect you, but you need not see this if it will make you uncomfortable. Perhaps you would rather stay here with some of the younger men?" Already his mind was on the coming battle. His thirst for blood was beginning to show and the others in the room were eyeing him. He turned his attention away from his lady and barked out orders to the shuffling servants that had them moving quickly out of the hall and out to prepare. "It is not the first time they have deigned an attack and it will not be the last." He murmured, voice laced with loathing.
"It won't take long, I promise. And then you will find your King tonight, milady."
