A wispy head full of grey, and soft glowing pupils were the only thing seen in this gathering of black. Atras lower body melding with the surroundings made him look like a floating head out of some horror story. He had frequented this lands, he just liked the quiet, and boy was it totally silent.

The wind didn't even seem to blow, but perhaps it too was lost in the thick, choking darkness of this ebon catastrophe. Much danger lurked in these lands, and it would be Atras goal to steer away from all of it, and get where he needed to be. It only took him less than a second to appear here, silently, so he waited for his companion. A person he honestly was not looking forward to traveling with on this journey.

Probably the only downside to his rebirth was that many might find his demeanor somewhat...disturbed. But it was a necessary evil. Regardless he had shown up not too late after Atra had appeared. He had vague memories surrounding the general area of the NIghtmare and with his speed it was a simple feat to figure but where to go and how to get there. ANd so through the never ending realm of black a pair of crimson red orbs would appear. They got closer and closer until they narrowed after getting closer to Atra. As they rested by his side his body had begun to materialize from the blackness around them. There were facets of himself that he did not quite understand...a hidden rage that lied within him that he could not comprehend. When this was all said and done he would venture into the depths of his being,..and find the reason for this unyielding bloodlust within him.Such an unsettling sight...

But only because he had spent his entire existence wrapped within the confiding cages of the dark black deep within Allen's soul. It was not that he did not care for the darkness...but it was definitely unsettling...

A dive into the realm of shadows enlightened Atra to appreciating the beauty of all things. Perhaps it rendered him overly rational, but there was much to appreciate about this place. Not only was it completely quiet, except on some rare occasions when the sleeping Reaver's jumped, or the various monstrosities were hunting. But everything inside was completely secret, bursting with life, and filled with discovery.

Why, to Atra it symbolized the journey inward. The quintessential paradigm of one part of the neovian way. Besides that, it was horribly unwise to have that peace disrupted. The Lizard's words bounced off every leaf, blade of grass, and reverberated through this boundless space.

"..."

Atra held up his hand, signaling for a pause and absolute silence. The Raven would leave her place of rest if there was trouble led to her and never reappear again for another thousand years. It was obvious that this salamander was one for the theatrics. The Shadow wasn't. Having ascended to the realm of Kage turned off his time of enjoyment and transformed it into duty.

And so he walked, in a straight line completely rigid. He would expect Allen to follow soon.

And so he walks, into the unknown black that is largely remincesent of the void he was born from. Stepping through the abysmal ambiance ot the Shadow lands, making sure to keep a good eye on Atra so that eh would not get lost, trickery littered the air here and he would not see himself fall prey to it's devices. He was curious to see what this Raven spirit would be like, legends had intriguded him since he first drew breath into his carcass...

They were robbed of time to catch up, the idle conversation of the 'tell me about yous' and the 'what makes you ticks' Atra normally wasn't for them, but Lumin showed him that the path inward was an intricate journey. He was readily accepting of the different walks of life people had trod. But duty took precedent.

Eventually they came to a stop in front of a two intertwining trees that looked like some archway. It was most peculiar that the trees had grown this way inviting people inside, or welcoming them to something horrid and peculiar.

"Hold. We must ask permission to pass lest we take the long way around."

The tension was ever growing, silence only made it worse. The only loud was the ringing in ones ear and the voices of man. The beasts here made no noise, they had mostly adapted to the Shadow Lands, save for the Reavers and... others

Atra turned his back to Nero to see if his friend was catching up with him lest he be lost in the shadows forever.

He had been following close behind the Destai so as to not loose his way. That would prove to be a most annoying and troubling scenario, one he hoped not to have to deal within honestly. SO his peepers were fixated on Atra's frame. He halted not to far behind him. They apparently had to ask permission to enter any further into the lands, something he had not been aware of the few times he had visited this place.And who is it we must ask this permission from? He inqueired further, the Raven seemed to be the head honcho of this area but if in fat there was something else that needed to be addressed first, then so be it.

"That... would be from me"

A soft while glow in the distance followed by the bone cold chill brought forth a most ghastly figure reminiscent of the Grim Reaper himself. He was dressed in grey, yet brought light to this dark place just as Atra did. His weight seemed to be supported on an axe like weapon while two oscillating rings of light floated about his head. His voice was a soft one, smooth as honey it fell like satin pillow on the ears.

He stood in between two trees that wrapped their branches around one another that seemed to be some sort of gateway to another portion of the Shadow Lands. But everything on the other side of the wrapped pines was by no means distinguishable form everything around them.

You look different form when I saw you last Atra, you call yourself Destati now. You neovians are always different by rise and fall of the moon. I take it you aren't simply exploring, as you have charted every inch of these lands

The Gatekeeper...

None knew of the origins of this being, a grey ghost of a man that simply stood vigilant over this section of the shadow lands. His watch was perpetual as he existed since Atra first set foot here. They weren't exactly friends, nor enemies as far as Atra new the gatekeeper wasn't a man that could be bought for some reason or another the Shadows themselves deemed him worthy to guard the secrets of its infinite depths.

"The Road Of Mastery is infinite, and on that road one changes and evolves as their power increases."

The Gatekeeper stood vigilant, he wasn't even breathing, simply silent. Atra could feel the aura of death from his piercing unending gaze leering into his very being. He wasn't uneasy however, he had come this way hundreds of times.

"I seek passage, you know what lies beyond this point. The Raven..."

This creature before him carried the essence of death within it. It was very much so likened to the Grim Reaper itself. Necro listened as the two conversed. He felt he might should speak on his own behalf but his words probably would carry little merit nor weight within these lands so he chose to remain silent for now while Astra dealt with the Gatekeeper. ... Though the shadow lands and their lore intrigued Necro with each moment he stayed here.

The Gatekeeper was still, all was still save for the shimmering rings around his bladed staff, borderline meat cleaver. Every now and then the idle flapping of wings, or the palpitations of hooves could be heard bounding across the soil. There was no record as to why the Gatekeeper took post here, nor how he came to be. The Shadow Lands was always here, but became all the more insidious when Mahk-X and ZK bumped fists... perhaps thats when this entity took root here.

What lie beyond this are however was where the Raven had taken roost, looking for someone trustworthy enough to call her keeper. Any other time Atra would be allowed passage but something about this stillness meant things were going awry.

And if I say no? Will you fight me? Or take the long way through recently acquired lands now held by the spiders?

"I didn't think you were a being that could be bought Gatekeeper."

It was obvious, The Spider Queens knew Atra was coming and barred his way. The territory the Neovians had in the Shadow Land was growing smaller and smaller and the only thing that awaited outside of their safe haven was a webbing of death and decay.

Sure it would be faster to fight their way through the gatekeeper, but to what cost? Atra had no idea what his abilities were other than what was speculated in Lore by philosophers, and he had no idea whether or not the spiders would come to Atra's aide.

He decided to see if he could obtain more information through the clever art of conversation, the very first battlefield all beings learn as warriors.

"What could a man like you want anyway. What did they offer you?"

Looks like the old being had possibly struck a bargain with the spiders. Hmmm those spiders seemed to be a rather interesting bunch of creatures. Maybe the weren't just a band of fools stupid enough to tread on Neaovian soil seeing as how this gatekeeper was playing defense for them. Necro had no standing among these people and simply decided to stay quiet as the two being conversed. Perhaps one would slip up and give him the scoop on these spiders...this clan within the darkness of the Shadow Lads.
