"How many friends will you betray making your new world? How many secrets will be shared that are not yours? No, you must be stop. You can not be allowed to tamper with the live of others." Roxil was only starting to turn and face Kaytee when she thrust her knife into his side. There was no resistance, she expected it to be harder, but the warmth of his blood on her hand confirmed her attack.

"The smell of flowers, I know you. It seems you are the betrayer."

"Roxil!" A woman screamed from the crowd, it was Anne.

"Do not worry, I will not die." He said even as he took his last breath. Just like the first time he publicly announced his divinity, his face appeared on the domes ceiling. "I feel my essence returned to me, I know my second self has been murdered. My invitation stands for those of you that wish to live in peace. My invitation is extended to those that wish to fight for peace. This attempt on my life is proof of the violence and hatred in your world, I condition I will end. Join me and help create a safer world for all humans."

Kaytee had meant for Roxil to be stopped here. It seemed instead she would only inspire more to his side.

"With the temple nearly complete and our supplies gathered, I think it's time I make a public appearance. Having seen the mortals of this world, though I would like to meet Roth them in the flesh, I'll be taking certain precautions." Roxil split himself in two as he had done the day he met Anne. "I'm weaker this way, a large number of my abilities are unavailable to me. However, I wish for the people to see me as a real being rather than an image in the sky."

Roxil stood at a massive fountain in the middle of the park at the center of the closest residential zone. He removed his clothing piece by piece until he was nearly nude and transformed into his war form, the twelve foot tall amalgamation of man and cat raised his arms in a welcoming gesture.


"I'm sure many of you witnessed my announcement one week and some days ago. I've come to welcome you to my new home. Of course, I haven't come to openly report the location of my recipe. What I have come to do, is deliver the opportunity to prove yourselves worthy. True believers in a new world of peace, your task is to travel to Agricultural Dome 082. There, my chosen faithful will find you. If they deem you to be trustworthy, you'll be escorted to your new home. Are there any questions?"

One of the humans that had joined Roxil's cause, believing when he claimed to be a god bringing peace to earth, was assigned to Alexia team. They had a list of supplies to gather, on the top being farm equipment and cattle. She knew she was only leading this team because she had the strength to carry the equipment and could fly it back quickly. It didn't matter, she would do whatever she could to change this world and make it a home for everyone good.

The current harvest cycle was over so the agricultural dome was relatively unpopulated. The humans found all the equipment she was supposed to fetch within half an hour. They gathered everything into nets and loaded all the cattle into trailers. Once they were fully loaded she took off, keeping the ground convoy in sight at all times. It took two hours to get everything back, but only required one trip. The humans were pleased, the supernaturals were pleased, but most importantly Roxil was ecstatic.

"We are not sure if you understand, Al. We know Roxil will be problem for all of us. We know he strong, but we can fight him."

"I know the threat he is. Kaytee, unless he cause hurt to innocent people we should do nothing. He already did the damage. He already expose secret, unless he start hurting good people, what worse can he do?"

Roxil say himself he want to be god of humans. She did not think he do so without hurting people. She just want to end this before he do. Al say fighting him will only increase conflict. He already do that by exposing all of them. Knowing what out there will make humans more worry. They already start to accuse other of being not human. She worry that war could start because of suspicious. Everyone fear everyone now even without truth. Kaytee know how dangerous that is, she want to stop Roxil before he make it worse. She would have to find group that also want to stop him if Al did not. She went to the first place any modern person would look, the internet.

Roxil retrieved some of the powder from his pouch bells tossing it to another man in the room. Apparently he could open miniature rifts and pull inanimate substances through, as long as he had a sample to work with. Many of the people that had come to the facility on the last day had farming experience. That was good, Roxil's temple was nearly complete, when it was he wanted the community to be self-sufficient.

At the moment he had to busy himself organizing teams. One team was to go out and steal some cattle and seed from an agricultural dome. Others wee being sent to gather food, water, and other necessary supplies. Alexia was being sent back to Al's to get not alcohol. After all, when they temple was completed they would need to celebrate. Roxil deeply enjoyed building a village again, and if his plans were successful this would be the greatest yet.

When Kaytee returned to Al's she went straight to his office. With the door left open she told him everything, where Roxil was, how many people he had, what they were doing. She described it all in great detail, and Alexia hard every word of it. Alexia had packed a few things from Roxil's apartment to bring him; the computer Anne had given him, his spare pants, several bottles of alcohol, and most importantly the leather pouch Kaytee had made him leave. Actually, those were all the possessions he had in this world other than the furniture that came with the apartment.

Her original plan was to bring his things and stay with him. Though now she was wondering if she could slip out unnoticed. If they didn't know she was on his side she might be able to return, keep him informed about what information Al had. She would discuss that with Roxil when she could. For the moment at least, she knew he would want his things. She waited until night to leave, and snagged a keg for him on the way.

Kaytee watched through eyes of the fire elemental shaped like a bird she made. In only three day Roxil and his new friends tore down almost the whole facility. They looked like were rebuilding. He watch the supernaturals work on building while humans pull grass and dig dirt. She wondered what he plan, why he need to rebuild. The place was easy to defend before they took it down.

Kaytee watch for hours, but had to go back. She had to tell Al how many there were and what they do. She still not sure what that is, now they seem to plow the surrounding area. Many come with big truck and trailers. She would tell Al and d maybe he will know what they plan.

Roxil leaned back in the previous commanders chair and nonchalantly waved one of the humans over. While he waited Roxil tore away his blood-stained shirt exposing the silver tattoos he was so proud of. 

"Turn on the cameras," He wanted to see outside though he didn't expect anything to be there. Instead of nothing, he saw several small groups of people starting to gather in the forest. How did they even know where to find him? Were they friends, or here to oppose him? "Let them in. There are three options here. They can join me, submit to me, or die if they wish to challenge me." Then something occurred to him. "Speaking of submission, mortals, are you on my side? Or will you be my enemies?" Not one of them planned to stand in his way. As the newcomers came in Roxil intended to question them, but first there was something more important. His first order of business was to have this cold facility converted into his first temple on Earth.

Alexia was so excited to see that Roxil wasn't hurt. She ran downstairs to find Kaytee and Al right away. She came to a dead stop when she saw the looks on their faces. When she asked what was wrong, she didn't expect the answer. They claimed that what Roxil was doing was evil, that he didn't have any right, that he was putting people in danger.

That didn't make any sense, the humans attacked him, they tried to imprison him. They were the ones trying to force him to hide, to pretend to be something he wasn't. He just wanted to help everyone live together peacefully, right? Didn't the humans want peace? Well, if Kaytee and Al were to blind to support Roxil, she wouldn't be.

"If he isn't welcome here, I'm not either. I'll just go."

"We are sorry, Al, we did not know..." Kaytee stood in front of the bar where a crowd had gathered, all staring toward the top of the dome.

"I know,"


"We have to stop him, yes?" Kaytee was not sure she hear correct, but it sound a lot like Roxil want to take over the human world. Even she did not think the Mother Tree would give consent for Kaytee to take over other world. He may believe he is a god, but she saw him beat. She admit that she should not need to hide, but she just want to be peaceful. She could not let Roxil do this.

Alexia perched herself on the quiet place on the roof where she had spent nights listening to stories about Roxil's home. She was startled when a massive alert symbol appeared on the ceiling of the environmental dome. Second later it was replaced by a towering image of Roxil holding a bloody uniformed human by the throat.


"It has become clear to me that you mortals are not capable of coexisting without someone to guide you, and when necessary, force you. Not one of your numerous gods I've been told of have stepped forward to do it so instead it will be my honor to bring a new age of peace to your world. My first act as your new god is a decree that none shall be forced to hide. All the so-called freaks and supernatural beings in the shadows among you, I say come out. Show yourselves with pride!" Roxil grew into his beastman form. "Follow my example, shed your human disguises and embrace what you are. Together, we'll cleanse the filthy nature of mortals and create a brighter world." The image faded from the sky.

Back at the facility Roxil dropped the human he had been gripping, and narrowed his eyes at the disarmed men around him. They had all dropped their guns willingly after witnessing him tear the steal cell door from its hinges and fight through the guards to the control room. He may not have their respect yet, but they feared him. They also knew that soon he could he could have an army of equally powerful beings behind him.

Alexia was prepared to fight for Roxil, these humans had crossed a line. She was shocked when Kaytee burst into mist around her and they both vanished, reappearing in the basement at Al's.

"Why would you do that?" She screamed. "Roxil needs us!"


"We believed Roxil to be invincible, if he was defeated so easy, what could we do?"


"We could have tried! Instead you just ran away, you're a pathetic friend!" Alexia turned and walked away, embarrassed to show she felt bad for saying that to Kaytee. She went up to the roof half wanting to be left alone, the other half was trying to think of a way to save Roxil.

"We've been over this Kaytee, gods like myself can speak for ourselves. Mortals, you have been judged as trash to be disposed of." Roxil said too easily, smirking indiscretely before shapeshifting into the twelve foot cat-beast he so loved being. "Come at me bros, I dare you."


"So that's how you want it?" The obvious leader said. "Release the girl." Several men stepped out of the tree line pulling a girl on thick chains. Her arms were held in cuffs that went up to her elbows and she wore a thick metal mask devoid of any features covering all but her mouth. One of the men pulling her removed the cuffs but left the eyeless mask locked in place. She smiled directly toward Roxil.


"Finally, they're letting me out to play." A faint holographic image of an opening lock skimmed millimeters across the surface of her mask when one of the soldiers pressed a button on a tablet. Metal compartments on her thighs opened, revealed in what had appeared to be large pockets. She retrieved a pair of guns very different than those of the men. Without hesitation she aimed and fired both directly at Roxil. Apparently they convened him enough that he activated some ability causing boney armor to grow from under his fur. The force of the impact made him glad he did. 


The girl just continued smiling but traded her guns for strange looking knives. Kaytee tried using an illusion spell that blocked her senses but it made no difference. She tracked Roxil's movement just as easily as before. Alexia figured they were probably in deep at enough at this point that it wouldn't hurt anymore if she took her natural shape. By the time she and Kaytee reacted again though, the girl had gotten one of her knives around Roxil's armor. He had a snug look on his face when she barely scratched him. A fraction of a second later the blade sparked with electricity. He fell to his knees just long enough for her to get the other blade through his armor closer to the neck. He didn't stand back up.

"Roxil, you do not help! Now you got shot. If we do not make these humans not tell you are not hurt, Al will be very mad!"

"The solution is easy, these humans have shown their nature. I judge them unworthy of life. If they don't live, they won't be telling anyone anything."

"We do not like it, but we think there is not choice." Kaytee knew that on Kariish it would be her right to take the life of anyone that attacked her. Enforcers were second only to tree tenders and not by a lot. This was not on Kariish. Al told her many rules but they did not help now. Her skin became red and her swords appeared in her hands. "You hear? My friend does not like you, that is too bad. He is not nice when he does not like people."

Alexia was at a loss, she had no idea what to do. She could fight with Roxil, stay hidden, or try to run. She could take Kaytee with her, abandoning Roxil to distract the armed men. Everything was happening so quickly she couldn't focus, until she heard the loud bang from one of the weapons.

Roxil stood before the gun pointed at him and grinned. His shirt was damaged near his heart, but when he removed it only the faintest of bruises was beginning to show on his chest. Maybe he really couldn't be stopped.

Alexia climbed down the tree and stood by Kaytee's side.

"Want to try that again, tough guy? My big bro is a whole lot stronger than you are!"

"You see them too, don't you? Those things in their hands, those are guns, weapons." Roxil whispered to Alexia at the top of the tree. He tensed his muscles for a moment and used all his strength to leap to the next tree, and the next, and the next until he was behind the approaching group. He made no sound among the leaves as he followed them from a branch. They were heading straight for Kaytee.

"You are in violation of the cordon effected by the United Regions Public Safety Commission. You will now be taken into custody."

"What cordon? There was no such thing when we entered."

"The cordon was effected 10 minutes ago do to suspicious activity in the area. Surrender yourself to our custody or we will use force." That was all Roxil needed to hear. He would not allow a human to take his friends without cause. He jumped from the tree landing directly on top of a soldier ripping the gun from the man's hand as he hit the ground.

Kaytee could not help think these two would create problem. Right now, they were good, look to be a big brother climbing tree with little sister. Just two sibling in a park to enjoy a sunny day. She did not know Roxil or Alexia well, but they seem to escalate fast.

She relax in the grass where she could see the others still. The light filter of this bubble was thicker than the living zone because people would be out for longer time. This mean she can be safe to absorb more of sun light here. The weather control here also was more strict because people are not in building that control temperature. This mean she could stay in the sun without lose so much water. When she relax enough however, she no longer focus on Roxil or the dragon.

When they finally arrived at the Hiawatha dome Roxil nearly threw himself from the vehicle. Alexis stepped out after him and was stunned by the view. This was the first time she had ever seen trees with her own eyes. The memories of her ancestors had made them seem so much smaller, or maybe it was her human disguise making them seem larger.

"I want to fly," She said to Kaytee. She hasn't used her wings since hatching, not even once. She even worried that without use her wings would grow too weak to support her. That thought scared Alexia more than any other.

Her thoughts were broken briefly when she spotted Roxil starting the climb into one of the trees. She followed him eagerly so she could see the world from up high. From the top however, she saw a large group of humans marching through the forest in their direction.

"I need out,"

"You've needed to stop every 15 minutes. At this rate we'll never get there."

"Than you can drive, I'll run."

"Because no one will notice the guy keeping pace with a car? We're halfway there, just-"

Roxil had already tuned her out. They were halfway to Hiawatha but Roxil was losing it. He hated being cramped in the vehicle for so long. He hated not being able to see the sky. He hated the chemical smell from the tunnel's air purifiers. He hated everything about this trip so far. All Roxil wanted was to see trees again, to lie down in the grass under the sun, and to feel the wind when he ran as fast as he could. His anxiety was growing so much so that he didn't even notice he had started to growl. His tail twitched uncomfortably and his ears folded back against his head.

"I shouldn't have asked," He mumbled. "I should have just gone myself."

"We can watch over them, make sure they do not draw too much attention."

"If they do don't plan on coming back."

"You can not fly though. Since the catastrophe the environment outside the bubbles is unlivable. The climate grew too warm to support the plants. The air itself has become toxic."

"I don't breathe,"

"I've learned to go hours at a time without breathing,"

"Well is that lucky for you two. We do not breathe, but we still need the air. We willl be taking the tunnels. That means we will also be taking a car to move inauspiciously."

Alexia giggled out loud thinking of how much trouble Roxil could get into if he were that bored. Honestly, his argument was a good one. If he wasn't exaggerating his abilities, he alone could take on any number of humans. She was confident in her own superiority. Not only would this give him an opportunity to fight out some of his frustration, but they could really do some good.

She voiced her opinion, hoping it wouldn't make Al too mad.

"I said already, I don't die easy. Al, you think I'm a troublemaker? I haven't even started to get bored yet. This is me when I've only been a little restless. I haven't been on a good run, I've not been able to hunt, you make me eat cooked food, and worse than any of that I've been living on minimal sex and cocaine. That is no way for a man to exist. I've even tried to pass time more quickly in my little pocket of Elsewhere, I was a little shocked I was able to access it from here, a little depressed when I couldn't just open it into the Wyld like I should be able to, I had thought that might be my way home. That leaves me completely stranded in this terrible world. If you think I'm causing you problems now, give it another day or two, a week, how restless do you think I'll be after another month here?"

Al had no response. How much trouble would the cat be causing after another month? It had taken Al many years to adjust fully to this world, and his own was much more similar than Roxil's. It was only now occurring to him how hard this had to be on Roxil. The man had a very different life than anything this place could offer. Even if it were more like home that wouldn't be enough. Roxil had dozens of grandchildren and great-grandchildren that he would never meet. This realization gave Al much deeper insight into the Lunar.

"It isn't safe. What if you go and whoever it is doesn't take or kill you, what they track you back here? You'll be putting everyone else in danger as well." He really did understand, but he couldn't allow it.

"This is not a good idea." Kaytee tried to tell them but they were still talking about plans. "It is really not safe to go there." Kaytee had been to Hiawatha before. She was shot many time and never find out where from or who did it. She did not even know how they knew she was not human. Kaytee was very good at blending in.

"Please will you hear Kaytee?" Al asked but still they did not.

"Many people who are not human do not come back from there. It is not safe."

"More reason to go. We will make it safe."

Kaytee covered her face with her hand. This man was so much trouble. "You will get your self killed."

"I could probably fly faster! And you wouldn't even need a basket! You could all fit on my back if we wait till morning." No one seemed surprised, only days ago she had been a mere foot long, now she was 15 feet tall. Her last major growth spurt was coming up, by morning she would be twice as big. With all her abilities at her disposal she would be able to fly at 400 miles an hour.

"I just said absolutely not! Do you even hear me?"

"Bro, calm down."

"Did you really just call me bro, cat?"

"He heard someone say it at the mall, and a bunch at that gaming place. I'm sure we'll be fine if we're careful, Al"

"What part of a dragon carrying people on her back flying faster than Roxil can run is being careful? You're not really that dense are you?"

It was hours before Roxil came back downstairs, when he did he had a big grin on his face.

"So we're all agreed that Al is a suspicious ass. Anyway it doesn't matter anymore, who wants to go on a trip? Anne told me that there is a forest nearby. I want to go. It's called Hiawatha and its only a few hundred miles from here."

"Where is Anne anyway? And how is a few hundred miles nearby?"

"She's sleeping upstairs. How is a few hundred miles not nearby? I could fly there pretty quick, we could make a basket to carry everyone else. Combined, you'll still weigh less than a bunch of armored Solars. Another option is I could run, it'll take longer but if I pull a wagon it'll be more comfortable for the rest of you."

"Absolutely not." Al said, knowing he was only going to make Roxil mad again. "Hiawatha is dangerous for inhumans, they tend to go missing there. Besides, wouldn't flying with a basket full of people, or even running with a wagon be conspicuous? I told you already, you need to keep a low profile."
