The lord was still on the throne as he listened to Aska's report. With his stone face hidden away behind his long, neglected hair, only the air about the room would betray his emotions.

First, it lightened a bit at the news of success and, only slightly, from the peak of pale skin of the woman's neck and the ghost of a smile could be seen on the exposed parts of his face, if the woman had chose to look. Then it grew heavy again as the smile vanished as though it were never there at the mention of those who betrayed him. If it were anyone else mentioning them, they'd have ended up like the dead rats littered about the room in an instant. Since it was his priestess however, he held back. One might not have even noticed if it weren't for the fact that the stench of decay had grown even stronger in the heavy air steeped in darkness. Upon hearing the date of his revival, the air lightened back to normal as the maiden regained his favor, and finally, he lifted his head from his hand as he stared at the ring in the woman's hands; an item he thought was long gone by now.

The lord remained seated until Aska finished speaking, then there was a long pause. The lord's old, clothing shuffled as he rose to his feet and he took slow, deliberate steps towards the woman kneeling before him. Upon reaching her, the lord stood there, the stench of decay even stronger now that his stale clothing was closer to her. Without a word, he plucked the ring from her hands and held it up examining it closely. Once satisfied, the lord slipped the ring into his pocket and nodded at the woman kneeling before him.

"Thou hast done well, I thank thee. Once I am free of this accused place, I shall reward thee graciously. For now all that ist within my power ist safe passage home," with that, the lord extends his hand over the woman and she feels a dark power surround her like a barrier and enhances her own darkness before the feeling fades. Once it is done, the lord turns away from the woman slowly making his way back towards his throne, his skin growing pale again.

"Thou hast served me well enough already. I shall see to mine own comfort once I am released. Continue in thy endeavors and free me posthaste that I may have my vengeance upon the world and reclaim the kingdom stolen from me so long ago." Upon reaching his throne, the man turned around and sat down in the position he was in when the woman had arrived. "Go now. I shall stay here and continue to store my power as I await thy return with baited breath."

It was then that the woman would notice it. Her lord was NOT as fallen as his appearance would imply, upon closer inspection, the room was so heavy with darkness that it had even become the very air she now breathed. Yet, it seemed like the lord could not access it for some reason. Even the small buff that he bestowed upon her came from the floor, not from the man. The wave of his hand was merely a signal to cause the action, not the action itself. The room darkened slightly as a low grow echoed from the walls. The man on the thrown smiled silently as he looked at the woman with amusement, a mounting sense of danger overwhelming her.

"It seems my companion is still not used to you. He still considers you naught but a snack," he said. It was a shame, he'd like to spend more time with her, but their meetings were always cut short due to this beast. "with the ring, I can control the beast, but it will take time. Thou must leave now, but worry not; by thy return, the beast shall be fully within my power. Farewell young maiden."
