|SubBook 1 Rutilus vs Puteulanus|

|Post #1 Oct 3 2008, 02:40 PM||Cloud_x128|
First off I'd like to announce the Sub Book1 has some theme music. It is Comrades. This has now been changed to a sub book. it enlists some details of the fights before the happening of book 1. It no longer entails all of book 1. There is a total of 6 chapters to it, and will lead into my next project.
Chapter 1: The world as he knows it
You could say this world is divided into two halves, each halve having two major powers and they compete for power in each side. On the Eastern half there was the Arkateck Empire and Arcadian union. They weren't on the best of terms but they weren't anywhere near war either. They just used each other for the profit of there individual countries. So you could even go as far as they were buisness partners, and as all buisness partners do when they get the chance is stab each other in the back.
I wish things were that easy to speak of on my side. Let's me start with the Blue hawks, they are currently ruled by the Mad King (as we call him) Zephiel. He's the reason this whole war started. He banned religion from the country and that divided us into what we are today. The Mad King doesn't take the field and lets all of his soldiers do all the work. Then again he doesn't have to take the field with the Blue Knight on the feild. He can slaughter battalions with the swing of his sword or a shot of his bow. He is the only reason the Blue Hawks are still in this war. Next there is the mysterious Black Owls. No one knows who they are or what they do, but they are out there somewhere. Comtemplating something. The only thing we do know is that they exsist and they are amassing troops for something. Finnaly there is us, The Red Falcons. Our leader is the leader of the church, Bishop Matthews the V. His daughter Sam is next in line to rule the Church, and therefore she will run the Red falcons someday. If you hadn't guessed already I am part of the Red Falcons. Our fight is to have free religion in our lands. We outnumber them 4 to 1, and that number is slowly dropping. Now though, they finnaly decided to send me out into the feild, where I will make sure to wreak havoc upon my enemy. Who am I you ask? Why I am the Red Knight, the one to oppose the Blue Knight, and the commander of the Red Falcon army.
Two armies stood across from each other ready for battle. One side armored in neat perfect exactly the same blue armor. The other side in not so clean, not so perfect, and not nearly the same armors. In fact some people were in everyday clothes. There was a horn blown and the red side rushed the blue side. The blue sides heavy infantry pulled out there pikes and put there sheild in front of them. Making the first of the red sides men to die on these pikes. The heavy infantry as soon as there pike got crushed pulled out a longsword and started chopping down enemy infantry. A swarm of arrows swarmed from the red side and hit the blue side hard, but hit there own teamates harder. A row of dead bodies now lay between the armies, but the blue wouldn't lose there line for anything and infact pushes there line forward so much that half of the army was now over that body line. A struggle went on for hours, both sides losing heavy casualties. The blue had pushed the red back in a corner. The dead bodies of thousands both blue and red layed at there feet. Then all of a sudden a red soldier yelled. "There up on the hill! He's finnaly here!" The whole of the people looked to the hill behind them. There was the one thing the Blue army did not want to see. A knight on horseback clothed in flaming red armor from head to toe. The knight drew his sword and then raised it and uttered a battle cry and charged the Blue army, One half of the army turned to face this new threat. Then as the knight collided with the blue soldiers, he got speared in the heart after taking out about ten of them in his charge. The Red army was distraught. The on thing that could save them got killed that easily. The blue army marched further intent on defeating the opposing force. Just as the first heavy infantry was within charging range, another battlecry was uttered. The feild looked over and saw another knight encased in flaming red armor. He raised his sword above his head and then uttered some words in which the whole of the armies could hear.
Knight: You who have killed my brothers and sisters! Your debt is to be repaid tonight! May the fires of hell lick at your feet as you burn to oblivion!
Then the knights sword errupted into fire, and he pointed it at the Blue army.
Out of nowwhere came 1000 calvalry troops up and over the hill, and beofre the army could turn around to face them, the calvalry hit. It hit the army in it's soft underbelly. Hundreds died in the next few seconds from this calvalry charge. The Blue army errupted into chaos soldiers going everywhere. Some soldiers saw from the blue army saw the Red Knight approaching on barefoot. They all charged him. He dispensed them with just one great swing from his sword. It seemed like that alerted all of the blue army to his presence and they all charged him. One by one bodies started pile up behind him. By the time the Blue army had gotten reorganised half of there original troops had died. They were in a defensive position slowly retreating. Then they saw the body pile that the Red army was piling up. It was filled with the deadcorpses of the blue army. The the knight brought his sword up as he walked around the pile.
Knight: Blue Hawks, if you learn one thing here today then know this! That we will not falter in our march to victory! Long live the Red Falcons!
The knight the stabbed his sword into the body pile and it erupted into a tower of flame. The blue army turned tail at that instant and ran.

Note: I changed this books theme song to Comrades from FE8. (link to it in first post.)
Chapter 2: An ally that is an enemy
The red knight was walking through the halls of castle dallas at a brisk pace. He had just returned from battle from up north and was wondering why the hell the uppers were summoning him when they knew he had to get back into the battle. He stopped before the two oak doors of the conference room. Castle Dallas had become the foothold for the red falcon army since they conquered Mellscreek a year prior. The soldier gurding the door looked over at the knight and asked what his buisness was here.
Red Knight: The council summoned me here for some reason, please announce me quickly as I have other things to do.
The soldier looked at him quizicly and then dissapeared into the room for about 20 minutes before coming back.
Soldier: They will see you now, sir.
Red Knight: Bout' time.
The red knight walked into a lavishly deccorated room. Almost everything was gilded on some part of it. It made him sick at the site of it. There was hundreds of soldiers out there who needed weapons and armor, and a good pay to send to there families back in the country, and yet these nobles sat comfortable in there great castles. He looked across the rom and there was a large table surrounded by 20 chairs. Only 5 were filled with nobles, and one had Saint Dathian in it. He walked up to the table and bowed to saint Dathian. Lord Dallas rose from his seat.
Dallas: Please sit General Gefre.
Gefre(Red Knight): Will all due respect sir, I don't have time for these pleasantries, I have men to command out on the feild and I need to quickly get up to Vidheim so I can help in the siege up there.
Lord Frankez: Shouldn't you stay away from the frontlines general?
Gefre: It helps keep the morale of the troops up, and if the Blue knight decides to show up then I need to be able to get there quickly as to minimise deaths.
Dallas: Have you met the Blue knight in combat yet?
Gefre: No sir, but I am looking forward to slaying the one who has kept us from victory for so long.
Dathian: Enough! We brought him here to question him about someone in paritcular and it is apparent we need to let the general go quickly so please bring up the topic we brought him here for!
Dallas: Yes, sir. General, what do you think of the upstart Young commander Jaden?
Gefre: Freedom to speak freely?
The nobles all looked between each other and then nodded there heads.
Gefre: I personally don't like him. He isn't here because he loves his religion, it's because he wants revenge. The power we have given him because of that has just corrupted his soul. He is a strong person but I do not think he is right of mind. He kills anthing that gets in his way of getting revenge. even women and children who have done naught to offend him. He is a beast with no morales. He is the last person I would like to serve with.
Dathian: You may now resume your journey to Vidheim, may the gods bless your journey.
The red knight then left the room.
Dallas: So have we all came to a desicion here?
Dathian: I think we have. All in favor of killing off Gefre, and then making Jaden our new commander say I!
Everyone of them said I except for Count Dekoo.
Dekoo: Why must we kill of our best soldier to make room for this person?
Dathian: Gefre is weak in the heart he is only willing what he considers knightly and honorable for battle. Jaden on the other hand will do anything even kill the wmen and children.
Dekoo: Jaden doesn't even have half the power that Gefre has though!
Dallas: Stop whining because you lose your power in the council, there are other people who can use that power better than you.
Dekoo got up and reached for his sword, looked at Dallas feircely then turned and walked out of the room.
Dathian: give him a bit, losing his childhood friend and lifetime servant is goin to be hard for him. Now that we have a joint desicion though, I guess we better send a message carrier out to Vidheim to have Gefre killed.

Chapter 3: Red vs. Blue; The Tower!
The crowded streets, people running to get to safety, building toppling at the machines of war. The Red Knight Gefre had just arrived into the town. He was heading for the watchtower, as reports indicated the Blue knight was at the watchtower. He knew that if he defeated the Blue knight here, the Blue hawks would crumble. The watchtower was coming into view. He ran into the opening around the Watchtower.
Blue Knight: This tower might just be what I need....
The Blue knight looked over his shoulder and noticed the Red knight.
Blue Knight: Bout' time we met.
The blue knight turned around pulling his bow off his back.
Blue Knight: So shall we get started?
The blue knight cocked an arrow. The arrow was of pure magickal energy. The bow didn't even have a string or bend, it was surely one of magickal prowress for a reason.
Red Knight: It'd be my pleasure.
The Red Knight drew his sword. Red charged Blue. Blue shot his arrow at Red. Red flipped his helm downdown over his eyes blinding himself, then ignited his sword and hoped to god that he got his timing right. The arrow hit the sword the sword slowly burning the arrows power out. Then suddenly there was a bright flash of light as the arrow dissapeared. The blue knight was blinded momentarily by the sudden burst of light.
The red knight quickly flipped his helm back into poistion with a toss of his head. He then started to finish his charge. He drew his sword in close ready to stab the blue knight. The blue knight had stumbled to the wall of the watchtower. The red knight stabbed out. The blue knight quickly what was about to happen and rolled off to the side. Red's sword was caught in the stone of the watchtower. Blue quickly ran out of range of Red so he could most effectively use his bow. The red knight got his sword out and made him fall back, and an arrow was shot right where he was barely a second ago. The red knight looked over and saw the Blue knight pullin g back his bow to shoot another shot. Red jumped up and enflamed his sword. He ran at the blue knight dodging two arrows by little more than an eigth of an inch. He was closing in on him only two more steps before he could get him. The blue knight backstepped and fired an arrow without aiming, and it clipped Red in the shoulder. Pain shot through Reds body, and his shoulder started to numb. He fell to his knees in pain.
Red Knight: Nice... shot...
Blue Knight: It takes skill, of which it seems you don't have...
Red Knight: What was that thing?
Blue Knight: An electrically charged magick arrow. It numbs most things it hits and spreads the exact same pain from the shoulder all throughout the body. A dangerous little thing isn't it?
A laugh came fro,m the cold blue suite of armor.
Red knight: It's a nasty little bugger.
The red knight rose up and stretched his arm out a little bit.
Red knight: You ready for round two?
Blue Knight: whenever you are.
Th red knight turned and ran up the tower behind him, the blue knight shooting arrows at him as he went up. Barely missing each blow. Once the momentum he had couldn't take him any farther up, Red jumped off the building backflipping so that he faced the Blue knight and coming at him with the force of his arm and the force of gravity with him. The blue knight then broke his bow into two seperate weapons then forming an x above him.
So that's another function of that bow, it becomes two swords at a moments notice! Thought red.
Red's sword collided with the X trying to break thrugh the swords. Then when there was no hope of Red breaking the defence Red jumped back, the force f Blue's swords throwing him further than he ecpected and he used his sword to slow himself, then when he was sure he couldn't slide much further he brought his sword out of the ground, it was roaring with flames, he twisted it behind him and brought it right back through the ground to in front of him.
Red Knight: Flame line!
A line of flame errupted from his sword going straight across where he had dragged his sword momments ago. Then it burst forth and struck at the Blue knight. Although he was quick and leaped out of the way of the line. Red then struck his sword into the ground once more. The ground began to glow an ominous magmatic red. Then heat came and the air started to broil.
Red knight: May the flames of hell lick at yur feet as you burn to oblivion! Hell pyre!
Then a tower of lava errupted from the ground right below the Blue knight and then another jet of lava blew out of the ground and another and another until all thejets converged right on trhe blue knight.
Smoke started to clear and the magic lava dissapeared. The ground was burnt and laced with small smoldering fires. There standing right in the middle of that was the blue knight, unharmed.

Chapter 4: Rooftops! Red vs. Blue
Blue Knight: I am becoming bored...
a look of shock quickly crossed The red knights face, then he quickly changed it to a grin. Hoping the Red knight didn't see his look of shock.
Blue Knight: Let's get back to our battle.
The Blue knight dissapeared. Red looked around seeing where the blue knight was, and couldn't see him for his life.
Blue Knight: Are you coming or not?
The red Knight looked up and behind him and there standing on his two blades stuck into the tower was the blue knight.
Blue Knight: Well?
The red Knight turned and started running up the tower's wall. The blue knight kickedout on of his two blades caught it in his hand, and threw it down to the red knight. the red knight caught the blade in his off hand, and continued running up the wall.
Blue knight: This looks to be intresting.
The Blue Knight the kicked out his other blade, he started to fall catching his blade so it was against his cold blue armor, and continued falling to the red knight. They collided in a fury of blows. ending in a stalemate with the red Knights blades in an X and the Blue Knights crossing the X at the center from top to bottom. They were falling fast. Then Red slashed both of his blades out knocking him and the blue knight away from each other. Then Red flung his flame sword across in an arc, sending a wave of fire towards the Blue Knight. The Blueknights slashed the flames away. The red knight then encompassed himself in a red fireball right before he fell smashing into the ground. The blue knight stabbed his sword into the tower slowing his fall. When he finnaly got to the ground the fireball around the red knight was still going.
Blue Knight: Don't tell me that's all you have...
Just then the flames started to waver, then it all froze for a second. Suddenly the flames burst, scarring the ground with scorch marks, and there standing straight up was the Red Knight, the rest of the fireball dancing across the red armor.
Red Knight: I'm just getting started.
Blue Knight: I think your all show, you haven't even damaged me yet
Red Knight: Then I better step it up some.
Music Time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9M1UsqqwF8&feature=related
The remianing embers started to burn feircly gathering around Red's longsword. Then they erupted into a Giant flame lance. His cape enveloped into flame, and behind his head a mane of fire appeared. His glistening red armor reflecting the flames, as if he was encompassed in flame.
Blue Knight: Again, I think your just bluffing, it's just sparkly to entertain the public.
The Red Knight then spoke, but his voice was diffrent it was filled with power, and the deepness of it made him sounds nothing like he did before.
RK: We'll see...
The red knight thrust out his lance, and flames shot forth right at the Blue Knight. The blue Knight dodged to the Right, but the surge grew bigger and his shoulder guard got hit by the flames desintagrating the shoulderguard on impact. The Blue Knight looked over in surprise at the fact that his shoulder guard had been decimated. Then he just smiled.
BK: Finnaly, a real challenge for me... someone who can actually stand before my might, not try and avoid me... you Red Flacons actually have an honorable person among you!
The Blue Knight rushed forward, and then elbowed the Red Knight in the stomach, then grabbed his other sword back. Then ran up the closest building. The red knight followed. The Blue Knight was on top of the rooftops, several rooves away.
BK: I felt like we needed a change of scenery.
RK: Fine, En Garde!
The Red knight thrust his Lance out again, the flames hungry for more steel. The Blue Knight knew it was coming this time and dodged to the left. He then procedeed into juping onto the next building over. The RK quickly brought back in his lance and thrust out in front of the blue knight. The blue knight dropped to the ground and slid under the flames. As soon as he got out from under the flames he sat up his bow now in his hands and shot an arrow at Lance. A Sheild of Fire appeared on Lance's off hand and he blocked the arrow with ease.
RK: Nice try.
Lance shot the flame lance forward missing the BK by inches, but then a second tower of fire shot out and hit BK straight in the chest. Breaking the armor he was wearing. He was pushed back into a building. Seconds passed, as the BK slowly got up from the rubble, he then took off his armor.
RK: Why are you taking off your armor?
BK: It's useless to me now...
Then the RK looked at his bare skin which should be burnt, but it was perfectly clear of any burning.
RK: Why.. why...
He got his answer then and there, the BK started convulsing, then his skin turned a slight blueish tint, and then leathery wings sprang from his back. His lengthened into a snout. The Bue Knight, in which all of the Blue Hawks entrusted there fate, was a half-dragon.

Chapter 5: A long awaited end
The awe of the half human hero was starting to wear away, but not soon enough, as the Blue Knight charged extending his neck out to bite his opponents head off. The red knight shot a burst of flame up into the air to block the blue knights killing blow. This only made the BK change tactics an instead of biting the RK head off, he charged his breath attack and sent a lightning bolt streaking across the sky. It struck the red knight in his right shoulder, in which disablin his main arm for combat. That seemed to shock the Red knight into the fight oce again, and he thrust out his other lance at the BK, but he missed him by a mile, because he jumped into the air and spread his wings.. His transformation continuing to make him look more like a dragon by the second.
The RK knew he couldn't last much longer if the BK could fly.
RK: I never guessed I'd ever have to do this again.. but it looks like I will...
The fiery cape on the Red Knights back spilt into two wing like shapes. Then his armor eruped into flames and he started to rise up into the air, and just as he came level with the BK, he looked exactly like a pheonix, prideful and true.
A dark gutteral voice that definitely wasn't the BK came from the BK mouth.
Blue Knight: It's been awhile since I've faced a Bladepheonix in battle, I killed most of them, thousands of years ago.
The two creatures dashed at each other multiple times each ending in a stale mate. Then just as they were leaving on of these stalemates the Pheonix turned it's head and shot a fire ball from it's mouth hitting the Blue knight straight between his wings. sending his plummetting to the ground. He was just to pull out of it, but the ground came to fast and he hit the ground hard. when the dust settled around him, there layed the Blue Knight unconcious. The Red Knight landed several feet from the Blue Knight and walked over to him. He took his flamberge in his left hand as his other side was still paralyzed. He stood before his enemy, waiting for him to wake. After a couple of seconds the Blue Knight started to wake. Then he finnaly opened his eyes fully then stared up at the Red Knight.
Blue Knight: Whyt haven't you killed me yet?
Red Knight: I can't kill an enemy without a weapon.
The red knight then threw Rhine his weapon.
Red Knight: I challenge you to a duel. One slice, whoever dies fist loses.
Blue Knight: I accept.
They both stood back to back, they both took 20 steps. Then turned ready to face there deaths. They both shot forward trying to get there blade to strike first. The Blue Knight was faster and delivered his blow first straight through the Red knights Right arm. The problem was that the Red knight was using his left hand to slash, and brought his blade directly into the shoulder of the blue knight, destroying the bone in the Blue Knights shoulder. The blue Knight fell to the ground. The blood he was losing was just too much.
Blue Knight: Finnaly I can rest.
The red knight turned to go to the medical pavillion and get his arm bandaged up, but then a stray arrow came out of nowhere and his the red Knight square in the chest. he then collapsed to the ground.

Chapter 6: A Swirl of Color
The Red knight slowly awoke from his deep slumber. He was in a small cottage, and there was an old man making tea in the other corner.
Red knight: Where am I?
Old Man: In a small desert town.
Red knight: Why am I here? I should be out on the battlefield helping my comrades.
Old Man: You would have died if I wouldn't have saved you. Besides it's for the better you remain hidden for now.
Red knight: Who are you to tell me what to do?
Old Man: You my boy, are a legendary knight, and the future of this planet will be one of destruction if you get killed now.
Red knight: Well i just won't get killed then.
Old Man: No matter what if you go back to your leaders then thy will be killed. They want a more merciless general than you. They want Jaden as there leader, although that will lead to there downfall ultimately, but still they will lose no matter what, and you getting killed is not a good thing.
Red knight: prove it!
Old Man: That arrow on the table is crafted by one of your men... and is soaked in poison. The senators orderd them to kill you if you beat the Blue Knight.
Red Knight: Then..
Old Man: I'm not gonna let you keep worrying about your damned past! The future i what is important for you! Now you will be sent into the desert whether you like it or not! There you will stay for 25 years or so.. unti lyuo are needed again.
Red knight: how dare yo...
Old Man: *kicks the red Knight out the door* Young man, do you realise who you're talking to?
red knight: but...
OldMan: Get out on your trek now! Leave your sword and your armor here for it'll just rust up out there.
Red Knight: Fine then...
*The Red knight walks out into the Desert, leaving behind all his armor and possesions*
* a young boy comes over to the armor and stares at it*
Old Man: Young boy, get back to your training if you ever want to be like that Knight!
Boy: Yessir! *salutes the old man*
Old Man : Youth these days *shakes head*
