Ninashi walked silently down the dark streets of Alexandria. It had been a hell of a time reaching this place from Esto Gaza, but he wanted as far away from those fools as he could get. How dare they cast him out like a piece of trash for fulfilling the most important code of all and saving a life? How dare the simple minded villagers accuse them of kidnapping the poor boy when he was half frozen to death? He had come to the conclusion that people had just taken things for granted for way too long. He grew up hearing the stories of old and how the peace came about after the near destruction of everything. His true reason for coming to Alexandria was to see Alexander himself. He knew the spirit of the eidolon was gone and would probably never return, but such a magnificent being he was.
He stuck to the shadows and avoided guards every time he heard one creeping around the corners in the shadows of the alleys. Without a gate pass, he'd most likely be thrown into the dungeons and interrogated... Not that he really had anything to say to anyone. His face stayed solid while walking, catching glimpses of the castle in the moonlight between the buildings. I need to get closer to really see the creature. The reason that we didn't learn of Terra too late. The thing that might have been able to save us this time if it were still here. He looked up at the sky, seeing the alien planet. It was almost the size of the moon now. He had no idea what it would do, just that it could possibly mean the end for all of them.
He closed his eyes and shook his head. If not for selfish ambition, the holy guardian would still stand proud today. The kingdom had fully restored his body, but the spirit was gone from the machine forever. He turned a corner and ran face first into a guard during his thoughts. As soon as he regained his composure from almost falling over, he turned and took off running as fast as he could. The buildings were going by in a blur as the guard shouted behind him, hot on his heels. "Stop! I swear to the gods if you don't stop and surrender, I'll have you thrown in prison for the rest of your natural life!"
Ninashi kept sprinting, taking corners left and right to try and shake the guard. He rounded one last corner and came to a dead stop. The point of a spear was sticking into his throat. He felt a trickle of warm blood lightly running down his neck and over his chest. It wasn't a bad cut, but enough for him to know fighting from this vantage would not work. He raised his hands slowly above his head and interlaced his fingers together. The guard with the spear smirked. "That's it big fella, nice and easy now. You didn't really think you'd escape from the best city guard this kingdom has ever seen, did you?"
