Updated story for my character
Category: Stories


=========================================================
In the beginning
=========================================================

After the world had been created and God had created humanity and Lucifer was cast into Hell the fallen angel decided to create a race of his own. Humans were deeply flawed creatures and he sought to create the perfect race. He created the Ing. The first Ing was nearly formless but Lucifer soon realized it had the ability to adapt to its surroundings and survive almost anywhere. He decided to give it the ability to procreate and within a year there were a hundred Ing. They were primitive and seemingly frail but Lucifer sensed the deep seeded, primal rage that emanated from them and for the first time he was afraid. He knew this would ensure humanity's destruction but they wouldn't stop there. They were a threat to all existence, especially given their ability to possess other beings, taking over their mind, body and soul. Thankfully they weren't strong enough to possess any truly powerful beings but the fallen angel would take no chances and cast them into the void.


=========================================================
In the darkness they crept. In the darkness they hungered
=========================================================

The Ing screamed in agony and rage as they were cast into their prison. It was another dimension, one of utter darkness and seemingly without end but it was also a barren wasteland and the only living things there were themselves. No hosts to possess, no lives to extinguish. They were meant to be the perfect weapon of war and their purpose was denied to them by their creator. The darkness ate at them and every day was a struggle. They should've died in the void but instead they integrated with it. They bared their teeth and swore one day they'd return. With red in their eyes.

Eventually they adapted to their new environment, though they'd never again stand in the light of day as the first born Ing had done. They soon learned to take basic quadrupedal forms along with others and soon began to divide into warrior, hunter and worker castes. It was at this time the first born Ing formed the hive mind that would link them all. They were one. But it also learned how to form portals. It couldn't sustain them for more than a few seconds but it knew that would change. The darkness is patient and the creatures multiplied.

=========================================================
Lucifer's second attempt
=========================================================

Lucifer had learned his lesson and when he created demons he gave them the secondary purpose of being able to kill Ing while at the same time, being immune to possession. But for now they would fight Angels. The demons formed a hierarchy of their own but they had a natural love for battle and competition could be fierce among them. Lucifer knew they were the perfect army and knew that unlike the Ing, they knew when to stop. Demons had a capacity for mercy, honor and even love and so, he prepared for his long war with Heaven.

=========================================================
The war between Angels and Demons
=========================================================


When Hell attacked the gates of Heaven the Angels were initially caught off guard but the Arch Angels proved to be fearsome opponents and drove Hell's Legions to Earth. The open warfare continued across the world and humans were frequently caught in the crossfire. But both sides also realized that humanity had the unique ability to choose a side. Good or evil, Heaven or Hell and both sides tried to get them on their side. Hell also formed their own knights, the equivalent of arch angels and again they were at an impasse.

Eventually the war proved fruitless and both sides realized the only real losers were humans, their homes destroyed, their loved ones burned in divine light or hell fire. They agreed to a truce but both sides kept agents on Earth to monitor one another. It was at this time other beings were coming into existence. Vampires, Lycans, ghouls and others. Some, like vampires were capable of sentient thought but others were nothing more than mindless beasts.

=========================================================
The rise of Lemuria: Humanity's protection.
=========================================================

Humanity needed protection from roaming packs of Lycans and other supernatural creatures but Heaven and Hell saw it as beneath them but they decided on a compromise. They found the very best of humanity and Heaven created a home for them that would also serve as a gate to Earth. Hell was prepared to give them the gift of magic but the Angels knew how destructive and corrupting it could be. So Hell gave the new Lemurians the souls of willing demons that would bond with their own. They would remain human for all intents and purposes but wouldn't suffer the effects of old age, disease and were as fast and strong as any demon. More than a match for anything they'd reasonably end up fighting on Earth.

The Angels sought to balance the fact that they were essentially half demon and ingrained in them a deep sense of empathy for humans. "We bleed as they do. We mourn as they do and we love as they do. That is why we fight for them and if need be, die for them." Was the first proverb they heard and it was passed on from generation to generation.

Lemurians soon became known as fierce, skilled warriors but they mostly stayed away from humanity, preferring to aid them from the shadows. The fact that most humans had no idea supernatural creatures existed only aided their efforts. Most were warriors but Lemuria had its share of scholars and philosophers.

Lemuria established itself as a monarchy but a democratically elected one. The people would vote once every two years.

=========================================================
The return of the Ing
=========================================================

In the year 1900 The Ing had gathered an army large enough to wage their war. They had been able to secretly abduct other beings to serve as hosts and by this time the first born Ing or Emperor Ing as they called him had created his queens. Leaders of his legions. They had free will but were unable to disobey him and one named Celosia who possessed the only known demon-angel hybrid would rise up to become second in command. As the swarm began probing Earth they discovered Lemuria served as a barrier and they learned about this race of defenders of humanity. Humanity numbered in the millions. They were physically weak but they could use magic and could serve as a mass source of hosts for the Ing. Plus, they had no way of defending themselves from being possessed. But first they would have to deal with Lemuria.

When the Ing first tried to possess a Lemurian they found that the demon in them would simply rip the Ing to shreds on a cellular level. At first this disturbed the Ing but it soon enraged them. Their original creator had made a new race solely to kill them it seemed and they swore they would destroy Earth, Heaven and finally, Hell. The Angels, likewise had no defense against Ing possession.

1940 began and the Ing gathered outside the gates of Lemuria. The Long Siege had begun.

=========================================================
The Long Siege
=========================================================​
The Ing flung themselves at the gates again and again and Lemuria had no idea what these strange creatures wanted but they were prepared to defend themselves and they struck back with impunity from behind their wall, aided with human technology they had acquired over the centuries, though they still mainly fought with their trademark blades of demonic energy.

It took forty years (1980) but the gates finally fell and Celosia took the field, leading the dark swarm personally. Despite their best efforts the Lemurians were outnumbered, though they inflicted losses on the Ing that horrified even them, even if only slightly. As their defensive lines fell one after another Celosia showed her skill in battle but also her cruelty. There was grace and nobility to her step. A beauty there but her eyes held the apocalypse. There was no hint of compassion or mercy. Her voice remained steady even as her words sent a chill through her enemies. When her hybrid wings spread wide, dark energy struck down all who witnessed it. But there was one she grew to hate.

Novelek Mactovish was a young man, barely 20 years old when the Ing had finally entered Lemuria itself but had quickly proven to be a skilled leader and warrior. He had been at every defensive line and Celosia soon noticed he would be the last to leave and even engaged her in battle alone a number of times. He showed no fear and had managed to fight her to a stale mate numerous times. Time and again their blades met. Novelek was a master of pressing the attack, driving his opponent back until they were exhausted but Celosia held her own and her nine bladed whip gave her the advantage of range. Each seemed to move on its own and could entangle a hapless victim while another flayed and skewered their friend alive beside them. Neither seemed to tire and a stalemate was common until Celosia called for her legions to overwhelm any remaining defenders and Novelek learned quickly that it was best to retreat when the sky grew dark.

After 20 years of war Lemuria realized they couldn't hold on any longer they began evacuating survivors, taking a portal to Earth even as Novelek held off the Ing with the remaining warriors. Again Celosia appeared and Novelek held her off, his blades keeping her trademark nine bladed whip that had skewered and decapitated so many of his friends and loved ones at bay. His wife and child had escaped to Earth and he soon followed them. The portal was sealed behind them and as the Ing stood upon the broken bodies of friend and foe alike they realized they had been cheated of victory. Lemuria had fallen but many of their kind had escaped.

The battle hadn't been without cost though and the Ing strengthened and reorganized their legions. As powerful as the queens were they could seldom issue commands while fighting a skilled opponent at the same time, Celosia notwithstanding. Sub-commanders were needed and would issue command from their queen to the warriors. They had individual personalities as the queens did but weren't as powerful.

The Ing prepared for the next phase and to finish what they started. Earth was wide open now and Celosia would again take the lead and her efforts in the ensuing hunt and purge would cause her name to instill terror. It was at this time the queens began shrouding themselves in Lemurian cloaks as both mockery and reminder. A mockery towards their fallen foes that screamed triumph. It was a reminder that the darkness was eternal and the swarm all-consuming.

=========================================================
The Hunt
=========================================================

The Ing eventually found their way to Earth but realized they'd need hosts to survive there. The queens would be on their own for the most part and forced to take mostly human forms but if the surviving Lemurians thought this would give them the advantage they were mistaken. The Ing queens hunted the survivors relentlessly and by the time Celosia and Novelek met in battle again Lemurians had been almost driven to complete, utter extinction. The Ing Queens were acute at tracking them and frequently ambushed their prey in the middle of the night.

She resorted to using a debilitating Ing poison and while he managed to keep fighting he knew he'd be dead by night fall. His wife and child were in hiding and he had a plan that might put a stop to the Ing. As he lured Celosia and her legion into an ancient chamber deep underground he activated a machine that demons and angels had constructed. When it activated it cast the Ing back into their world and for all intents and purposes locked them back inside.


And this is where Steven's story begins.
