View Full Version : Kaezu: Darkest of Days --- Part I through III
January 17th, 2005, 11:27 PM
I know that my stories, Kaezu: Darkest of Days Part I and Kaezu: Darkest of Days Part II have been around for a while, but I just recently (as in 10 minutes ago) completed the Third installment in the series, you guessed it:
Kaezu: Darkest of Days Part III
Now, I try to make it so that each of the storys in my series can be 'stand alone' mini-epics, but at the same time have a great sense of continuity within them. So, just to be safe, I am posting the previous DOD episodes, I and II, along with Part III.
Well anyway, One new creature, an entirely new civilization, and one 'previously introduced' Kaiju will all make their debut in Part III. The new Creature is the Oodaki (yes, its only one letter different from Oodako. Dont tell me because I KNOW, I did this on purpose :D), a large, terror of the seas that is a mix between a squid/octopus, a crustacean, and a hell of alot of my own creativity. The new civilization is composed of the Kimodans, a race of komodo-dragon like quadruped reptilians that wear metal clothing and armour, and are very intelligent, aquatic beings. They live in large, underwater structures that took them centureis to complete. And the 'previously introduced' Kaiju is Sylus: Warrior of the Oceans, who is basically the Kimodan's answer to Kaezu. Sylus is another guardian. Ill have an illustration of each of these creations readily available tomorrow. So now that Ive cleared that up (or confused you even further), here are the stories, Enjoy:

Dior began to climb the massive tree, her thick fur waving in the refreshing winds of the upper canopy. She began to slowly pace herself as she reached the leafy foliage. Dior was climbing one of the “Brimbaire” trees , the infamous giants of the Island’s plant life that plagued the island. If it wasn’t for Dior’s thick fur and rough skin, the spiked and prickled leaves of the Brimbaire trees would have driven her back down the trunk of the giant.
She sat in one of the more sturdy branches as she began to pick the ripe Brimbaire fruit. She untied the spear from her back, sticking the bright yellow fruit onto the primitive device one by one. Dior’s face lit up with a smile as she picked the last fruit within her range. She licked the juice off of her hand as it leaked from the fruit on her spear.
Her fur stood still for the first time in her little venture as she began to make her way back down the tree. She ignored it at first, her face still gleaming with the pride of her successful gathering of food. The wind began to pick back up, but abruptly stopped again as the canopy grew dim. Darkness swept over the treetops in a wave of shadows, and just as soon as it had appeared…it was gone.
Dior was now frightened, but chose to concentrate on her treacherous climb down. She braced herself as a large gust of wind picked up through the bristling branches. She tightened her spear onto her back, as she froze. Her eyes peered into the distance as a blood-curdling scream overtook the echoing canopy. Dior panicked and slipped, her foot missing a branch as she began to tumble through the branches. She desperately grabbed for branches, finally getting a hold of one. Her momentum still carried her down the tree, forcing her downward. Her hand, still holding the branch, slipped as she swung directly into the trunk of the tree. Her nose trickled blood as another anonymous scream bounced through the trees.
She wiped the blood from her face, climbing back down the tree. Her limbs became flimsy as more screams began to meet her ears, now followed by the sounds of explosions and splintering wood. She began to panic once more, tripping on the branches as the sharp-edged leaves disposed of some of her fur. Dior grabbed the spear on her back, desperately untying it. She wedged It into the tree’s thick trunk, slowing her rapid decent as the fruit dispersed into pieces, some hitting her in the face. She closed her eyes from the fruit to avoid loss of site in this desperate situation. Dior opened her eyes abruptly as a branch slammed into the back of her head. She began to weep, speaking in her native tongue, pleading for help as more anonymous screams met her ears. She closed her eyes once more in a desperate attempt to escape her fate. One last tear fell from her eyes as she stopped. She opened her eyes, wiping the salty tears from her face as she looked down to see the lush grass. She had reached the bottom.
Dior began to carry herself as fast as her now limp legs could move. She scurried toward her village, still panicking as the massive amount of screams overtook her sanity. Dior looked up as the sky grew dark again. The darkness seemed to come with strong wisps of violent wind. She fell to her back, wiping more tears from her face. The wind stopped as the darkness disappeared. Dior froze and began to shake as the air filled with a menacing Cackle. Dior switched to her feet, jogging for her village, now shaking and crying heavily. She began to scream herself, as more terrifying Cackles met the forest around her.
The young being stopped as she met the clearing in front of her village. Her people were sparse, the surviving members running towards the outlands. She ran in to find her little brother, now screaming in a panic as she stepped over the remains of her people. The smell of blood met her nostrils as she spotted her small wooden house, located up in a Brimbaire tree. She scurried towards the tree, tripping over other dead entities…
Her brother, Mali, peaked out of the window. He spotted his mangled sister as he screamed out her name. Her crying turned to tears of happiness as she spotted his little furry head in their home. Suddenly the sky grew dark once again. Another trembling Cackle met the air as a gust of wind swept the lifeless bodies across the grass. Trees began to fall and splinter as the cause of all this pain and destruction swept towards the inland village. The massive creature’s Cackle met Dior’s ears with immense pressure, causing them to bleed. The last thing she heard was the screams of her brother as he watched the massive terror swoop down into the opening, catching his sister into its gigantic toothed beak.
Mali began to scream uncontrollably as he watched his sister being devoured. The mammoth creature’s eyes narrowed onto Mali as it swallowed what was left of Dior. The sun glistened onto the gigantic terror’s thin, dark-yellow feathers that clashed with the deep brown of its exposed rough skin. It stood onto its massive taloned feet, raising its arched-back into the canopy. The creatures long neck stretched out to the small wooden structure. Mali began to shriek as the being’s golden beak shoved into the window, slowly splintering away the wooden frame. Mali stumbled backward towards the opposite wall, trembling with fear. The creature stretched out its massive jaws, letting loose a shattering Cackle. The terrifying sound hit Mali with immense pressure. His thick, light brown fur waved in the churning air as he began to black out. Mali fainted into the creatures outreached mouth…
The giant birdlike creature withdrew its crooked beak, completely disintegrating the former home. The menace scanned the area as it finished off the remaining primitive young boy.
The creature began to flap the gigantic exposed skin that made up its wings, kicking up clouds of debris and dust in the once proud village. One remaining man stood in the clearing, blank with fear and desperation. He tried not to scream as the mammoth bird stormed towards him. His eyes teared up as he watched a creature that resembled the peaceful Caldaks ensure his fate. He couldn’t hold in his screams any longer as his looming death approached…The man let loose one final screech in complete terror. The gigantic, and yet seemingly mutated Caldak ignored the primitive being, flapping its thin wings, taking off into sky.
The man’s scream set off an unnoticed chain reaction. The ground began to crumble as six massive spikes burst from the earth. A seventh spike, followed by a trumpeting mouth and gleaming white eyes appeared.
Kaezu, The Guardian of Life, latched onto one of the giant Caldak’s stalky legs with his massive jaws. The giant bird let loose a screeching cackle as Kaezu dragged it back down toward earth by its now bleeding leg. Kaezu let loose the giant Caldak as it slammed into the ground, barely missing the awed man. Kaezu’s eyes met with that of the primitive mans for a brief minute. A surge of peace ran through his body as he smiled. The man snapped back into reality as another cackle let loose from the toothed beak of the massive Caldak. The man took off in a sprint towards the deep woods. He was the only survivor of his village.
January 17th, 2005, 11:31 PM
Kaezu fully surfaced, slowly shaking his entire body as he rid himself of the massive clumps of dirt and clay. He looked down upon the giant Caldak, whose low head outstretched a bit beneath that of Kaezu’s. The massive mutation snapped its jaws at The Guardian of Life, signifying it was ready to retaliate. Without hesitation, the giant Caldak leaped to the air, flapping its gigantic wings as it clawed at Kaezu’s face with it’s massive talons. Kaezu trumpeted in pain as he reared his head back, evading the creature’s next onslaught of strikes. Kaezu snapped his head forward, unleashing his horn onto the giant Caldak’s feet, severing one of its toes. The creature slammed it’s feet to the ground, spewing blood every which way as it stumbled, trying to balance now that one of its toes was missing. Kaezu took this chance and lowered his neck, putting his shoulder spikes forward. The juggernaut rammed into the giant Caldak, impaling one of its wings.
The creature let out a Cackle of pain as it used the impaled wing’s claws to latch onto Kaezu’s massive spike. It hung onto Kaezu’s shoulder as it used its beak to stab and peck at Kaezu’s vulnerable neck just below it. Kaezu let loose a painful roar as the giant Caldak shoved its beak deep into Kaezu’s neck. Kaezu began to sway dizzily, finally using his tail to swat the mutant from his back. The Caldak met the ground with another gigantic thud.
Kaezu placed his foot onto the Caldak’s exposed underbelly, digging his claws into the mutant as he ripped them backward. The giant Caldak shrieked in pain as it realized the injury from its now gashed torso. The Caldak began to gag as its throat swelled, its head began to hauck back and forth. With one last hauck, the creature let loose a spew of acidic slime. Kaezu trumpeted desperately as the slime met his face, burning his rough hide. The Guardian of life reared up onto his back legs, thrashing in pain. He slammed his head against the ground, wiping the slime into the earth.
The Caldak swatted Kaezu’s face upward from the ground, sending him sliding into the trees. Kaezu’s nostrils flared as his throat swelled with air. His eyes gleamed of a deep yellow as he let loose a Sonic Roar onto the giant Caldak. The vibrations from the intense roar shook the intestinal damage of the mutant as it flew back onto the other side of the clearing. The Caldak fell to its knees as it began to regurgitate; blood spewing from its gut. Kaezu’s throat swelled and then depressed as he let loose yet another Sonic Roar, causing the mutant to slam into a crater in the ground as it blacked out.
Kaezu lumbered over to the giant menace, stepping onto its long, slender neck. He pressed his heel deep down into the Caldak’s neck, cracking its vertebrae and separating its muscles from its exposed skin. Kaezu raised his foot from the bloody mess, shaking off the grotesque remains of the now deceased threat. He turned to face the former village as he lied down. He placed his head softly onto the ground as he began to mourn the loss of one of the island’s few remaining villages. The Guardian of Life drifted off into a peaceful sleep as the sun set. The countless souls of the former village could now rest in peace.

Kaezu: Darkest of Days Part II
The two moons shone brightly through the canopy as the Caldaks let loose their lulling song. Before long, the entire island was reposing, and the satisfied Caldaks followed soon after.
Kaezu slept peacefully in a bed of splintered trees near the previously attacked village. Even as he slept, Kaezu’s mental state stood on high alert as vivid flashbacks of the Mutated Caldak’s vicious attack engulfed his mind. Other Namulians had repopulated the area, and enough time had passed for them to resume normal routines. The peaceful humanoids rested soundly in their freshly built huts of wood and dirt.
An elder Namulian by the name of Bornin rolled over in his prickly bed made of leaves and grass. Finally fed up with the uncomfortable situation, Bornin sat up slowly, brushing the debris from his thinning fur. He placed his hand on his back, struggling to make it to his feet and off of the bed. As his feet firmly planted and his back straightened, the dirt floor of his hut began to quake. Small pieces of soil bounced rapidly as larger piles of the terrestrial mixture rippled wildly. Bornin began to question fearfully in his native tongue, his voice shaking along with the increasing vibrations. A large tremor struck, knocking him to his feet as part of the hut collapsed inward.
Kaezu’s eyes shuttered momentarily, but soon closed as he deemed the tremors as unimportant. As the Guardian slowly drifted back into his slumber, a pale green tentacle began to weave its way through Kaezu’s bed of tree trunks. The greenish tint of the tentacle pulsed with a reddish liquid as it slithered through the wooden rubble underneath Kaezu. With a sudden burst of wood, the tentacle breached the surface of the pile, directly beside Kaezu’s jaw. The shattering wood disrupted the Guardian’s sleep momentarily…but he did not spot the tentacle. He slowly resumed his relaxation.
Seconds later, the tentacle resumed it’s sly behavior, eventually stretching several yards above the pile of rubble. With speed comparable to a bolt of lightning, the tentacle lashed out toward Kaezu’s exposed neck. With equal speed and response, Kaezu’s eyes slammed open as his neck snapped out of the tentacle’s reach. The tentacle belonged to Vulticus, and Kaezu immediately sensed it’s evil. Without hesitation, the juggernaut known as the Guardian of Life snapped to his feet, smashing the tentacle deep into the splintered wood with his tremendous forearms. Kaezu knew to close his eyes as a seemingly endless spray of thick red blood shot out of the rubble in response. If one drop of Vulticus’ toxic blood had reached the innards of Kaezu’s body, it would have meant unavoidable intoxication…and eventually mutation…
Bornin wiped the intense amounts of sweat from the fur on his forehead. The dark, wrinkled skin underneath his fur relaxed as the threat seemed to cease. As he slowly lay back down to rest, the tremors began again. Frightened and startled, the elder Namulian struggled to resume his upright position. The remainder of the hut began to cave in as a solitary log struck the back of Bornin’s head, rendering him unconscious. The tremors began to focus around the demolished hut as they suddenly stopped….another tentacle appeared beside the fainted Bornin. In a flash of gore, the tentacle forced its sharp tip directly into the tender stomach of Bornin. The tentacle slowly shoved its mass deeper into Bornin’s intestines, causing immense bleeding…the elderly Namulian was completely unaware.
The thick red liquid began to flow through the tentacle once again, eventually secreting itself into the large wound in Bornin’s torso. With one large slice, the tentacle recoiled from its victim, eventually submerging into the soil and disappearing.
Bornin laid bleeding…still unconscious…as the tremors silenced.
Kaezu lumbered slowly down the pile of tree trunks, filling the still air with the racket of crackling wood. An unnatural concentration of some sort was attracting Kaezu to the Namulian village. Kaezu pushed his way through several hundred trees with little effort, eventually stopping at Bornin’s demolished hut. Kaezu’s eyes narrowed as his nostrils took in the scent of Vulticus’ blood. Bornin had been infected…
With one long, trumpeting roar of sorrow, Kaezu lowered his head to the rubble, picking away the small logs in search of Bornin’s body. Nothing was left but a puddle of blood.
Kaezu’s head snapped to the left as something caught his attention out of the corner of his eye. Bornin was alive, and slowly stumbling through the village…leaving a trail of blackened blood behind him. His old and frail body was not taking the toxic blood from Vulticus’ tentacle well…and the mutation process embarked rather quickly. Kaezu watched in horror as the small Namulian dropped to his knees, wailing in pain…
Bornin’s eyes suddenly shot red as his shoulders began to twist. His thin frame began to bulk as his already thinning hair spread across his expanding skin. Bornin screamed madly as his natural claws increased in size, along with the rest of his body. Bornin’s injured back began to hunch as his spinal chord became entangled with tentacles similar to that of Vulticus’.
Kaezu watched as Bornin continued to mutate, increasing in size and ferocity.
In a fit of rage, the now completely Vultican Bornin threw his head around, starring at Kaezu. They now stood eye to eye…. Bornin was enormous. The mutated Namulian stormed toward his enemy, smashing innocent members of his former species along the way. The entire village was demolished once again as Bornin made his way toward Kaezu.
Horrible flashbacks of the Mutated Caldak began to plague Kaezu’s mind as Bornin approached.
In a feral state of madness, Bornin lashed out at Kaezu’s jaw with his immense claws, slamming the Guardian back to reality. Kaezu let loose a trumpeting roar, signifying that he would indeed take the challenge. He did not want to attack one of the Namulians he was sworn to protect…but Bornin was now a victim of Vulticus: Bringer of Death. Kaezu had no choice…
Kaezu lunged forward, thrusting his two large shoulder spikes at Bornin. Bornin, shocked, grabbed the middle of each spike on Kaezu’s shoulders. Bornin was now locked in combat with Kaezu. He began to push backward onto the Guardian, but quickly let loose of the spikes as Kaezu shoved his nasal horn into the still open wound in Bornin’s stomach. Bornin, wailing with pain, grabbed Kaezu’s nasal horn, pulling himself off of its impalement. Bornin grabbed the heavily bleeding wound with one hand as he swung his other large fist into Kaezu’s jawbone, shattering several of the Guardian’s teeth. Kaezu grunted as he spit out several sharp teeth into Bornin’s face. Bornin licked the bloody mess from his face, wiping the rest of it clean with his wooly arm. He went in for another swing at Kaezu’s skull, but failed as Kaezu caught the mutant’s arm in his jaws. Bornin screamed horribly as Kaezu began to bite down with immense pressure onto the Namulian’s arm. He began to maul Kaezu heavily with his remaining fist as he struggled in pain…
Kaezu finally clamped down onto Bornin’s arm with all of his might, tearing the mutant’s muscle and eventually shattering his bone. The Guardian immediately flung Bornin onto the ground before any of the toxic blood that now circulated in the mutant Namulian’s veins could reach his mouth.
Bornin struggled to his feet, holding his arm as it bled heavily. Kaezu did not hesitate, and pulled a full 360-degree turn as he swung his barbed tail directly into the side of Bornin’s face. The four barbs at the end of Kaezu’s tail sliced through Bornin with ease, rendering the Mutant blind in one eye. Kaezu cringed as he turned completely around once more, meeting the gruesome face of the monstrosity once known as Bornin. Half of the Namulian’s face was gone…pale, fractured skull could be seen underneath the scarce remains of his flesh. Kaezu had to be careful, his opponent was now covered in toxious blood.
Choosing to waste no more time, Kaezu leaned backward onto his hind legs, spreading the claws on his forearms. With one trumpeting call of victory, Kaezu used his own momentum to crush Bornin as he slammed down on top of the Namulian with his large and powerful forelimbs. In a split second, blood and flesh shot out in a rain of gore toward Kaezu. He closed his eyes, but a small piece of flesh shot up into his nostrils. Kaezu shot into a rage of panic as he immediately scampered away from the now slaughtered Bornin.
Kaezu was extremely intelligent for such a creature, and knew that internal contact with Vulticus’ toxins meant certain doom for himself…and the innocent Namulians.
He slammed through the thick forests in search of the shores. With surprising speed, Kaezu began to plow through the splintering wood with no conscious effort as his un-infected nostril met the pungent smell of salt water. Kaezu stomped through a few more trees, soon after arriving at the familiar lake. In a crazed state of haste, he submerged his head deep into the sea, releasing massive amounts of air through his nostrils in an attempt to rid himself of the infected flesh.
In one final act of desperation, Kaezu inhaled the salt water through his nose. Withdrawing his head from the waters, Kaezu immediately began to throw up salt water. As he quaked weakly in his state of panic, Kaezu looked down upon the pile of regurgitated water to see the infected flesh from Bornin. With a sigh of relief…Kaezu collapsed onto the soft, sandy beaches.
The threat had disappeared. And more importantly, Kaezu and the Namulians were safe.

Kaezu: Darkest of Days Part III
The dark, motionless waters of the abyss began to tremor as the life below began to awaken. Millions of fish and aquatic creatures spurted about, too small to disrupt the quiet flow of the deep waters. The fish commenced to swimming towards the warmer waters of the surface as the sun rose from it's resting horizon. Their slow pace began to pick up as large bubbles slowly seeped from the darkest parts of the abyss...
In a massive panic, the entire marine ecosysytem went into a state of frenzied madness as they darted for higher waters. A large, fleshy organism with a plated body and multiple tentacles slowly made its way upwards towards the warmer waters. This creature was known as the Oodaki, one of the largest predators of this massive ocean. Its tentacles began to sway with intensity as it picked up speed. It was heading for higher waters, and the people of the underwater civilization, Kimodo...
Several other Oodaki followed as the first to emerge targeted a large Kimodan Structure. The complex was gigantic...it was constructed, for the most part, of a clear substance that allowed the Aquatic Kimodan's to live safely under it's protection, but at the same time feel as if they were still within their precious water. The clear, round structure was laced with a near impetrable blue alloy, to further camouflage and sturdy their ingenious creation. The entirety of the complex was round, and a floor was placed almost at the very bottom of the gigantic dome. The innards of the circular commodors were laced with beautiful architecture that resembled that of choral and seaweed. Several thousand Kimodan's lived in each of the structures that were fascened to the ocean floor, miles below them. It had taken them centuries to complete their wonderous structures...they were the pride of their people...
"Lip Ahk! Lip Ack!"
Look out! LOOK OUT!, shouted one of the reptilian Kimodan's. A large Oodaki began to drift into the view of the enormous clear structure.
"Oodaki!" ...The Kimodans began to panic as thousands witnessed the long, slender tentacles of the kaiju wrap around their beloved complex. The quadruped Kimodans jumped to their hind legs in retreat, fleeing for the nearest tunnel that would lead them to the next complex as their metallic clothes and armour clashed together. The Oodaki began to squeeze with all of it's might, but the structure would not give way. Suddenly, as the first crack appeared on the structure, immense bursts of lightning flooded the entire structure. The waters outside of the round complex bubbled and simmered as the light dissapeared, as did the Oodaki. All that was left was the one solitary crack...and an immense charred mark on top of the Kimodan structure...
The wounded Oodaki floated motionlessly down into the abyss. The remaining, cannibalistic Oodaki quickly devoured the burnt flesh of their bygone relitive. As that meal soon dissapeared...a more perculiar scent met the nerve endings of one of the gigantic predators...It headed toward the shore...where Kaezu was currently resting...
Kaezu lay still as the rising tide clashed with his rough gray hide. The light of day lit up the vibrant beaches of the island as Gull's fluttered through the peaceful sky above the Guardian. Kaezu's paced breathing began to pick up speed as he made his first attempt in hours to rise from his resting place. He lifted his large forelimbs, placing them firmly into the soft sands as he began to uplift the rest of his girth. Kaezu shook his head from side to side in a slow, lazy manner in order to rid his now standing body of the itchy sand. He looked to the sky, gazing out at the peaceful Gulls as their cries mixed with the gentle breeze and the roaring of the constant tides.
The Guardian of Life turned his head to the nearby forests as the joyous sounds of the awakening Namulians mixed in with the symphony of the island's natural orchestra. His eyes gleamed as he made way towards those he was sworn to protect...his beloved people...
As Kaezu began to trek through the shifting sands of the beaches, he stopped. His mind went completely blank as his concious immediatly detected a disturbance. His eyes shifted as his breathing shallowed...Kaezu's eyes slowly opened as his mind processed the situation...
The Gulls had dissapeared...
Kaezu turned back to the ocean. His eyes watched the shores as the tides began to pick up violently. The Guardian took several cautious steps backward toward the inland, closely watching the raging tide. Suddenly, an enormous, solitary wave began to build with intensity...right in front of Kaezu...
Being the large brute that he was, Kaezu was not meant for aquatic situations. He could not swim, and was conciously aware of such. The Guardian's eyes lost their curious glow as he spun around toward the forests, kicking up sand and dust into the whisping winds. He began to quickly trot away from the ocean, fearing that the wave might flood the lower shore. Kaezu increased his strides as he looked back to see the enormous wave crashing in behind him. The sands began to shift and sink toward the ocean as the rip-tide of the collosal wave took effect. Kaezu let loose a low grunt as he began to run full speed. He took one final look back as a large, shadowy figure burst forth from the riptide. A long, red-tinted tentacle shot forth from the waves, slashing Kaezu in the face. The Guardian slammed forward to the ground as the result of his own momentum. He blacked out as the tentacle wrapped around his tail, dragging him toward the ocean.
Kaezu was down, and helpless...
The Oodaki shot more of it's tentacles out at Kaezu's thick tail. The resistance of the roaring waves provied more than enough force to keep the large aquatic creature from successfully dragging the Guardian under. In a fit of rage, the Oodaki pulled with all of his front tentacles, finally submerging his massive prey. The Oodaki let loose with all but one of his tentacles, and began to drag Kaezu to the abyss...
As the Oodaki made its way toward the dark waters, Kaezu began to struggle subconciously. The Oodaki, realising that it's prey may awake, shot off as fast as it could toward the ocean floor. Kaezu's eyes shot open as the pressure of the deepening waters began to ware at his nasal horn. The pressure was causing massive air pockets to build in his hollow horn, as well as the rest of the tubes in his upper body that helped in creating his Sonic Roars. Kaezu began to thrash and frail with all of his might, fearing that his horn may soon rupture from the building pressure. The Oodaki did not give way, and merely stared at it's prey with one eye as it guided itself with the other. Kaezu was running out of air as his final supplies of oxygen began to clog under the pressure of the air pockets in his system. His eyes glowed of a bright red as he slipt into an involuntary and feral rage. His natural instincts took over as he neared death from suffocation...and eventually...drowning...
Kaezu swam to the best of his ability toward his captor, slashing with his nasal horn as he used his limbs to desperatly paddle downward. As he neared the solitary tentacle that held him victim, Kaezu closed his throat as he opened his massive jaws. He kicked violently with his back legs, and went in for the kill... Kaezu clamped down on the tentacle with all of his might, severing it from its host. The Oodaki immediatly stopped its swimming pattern, letting loose in a fit of pain and suprise.
The Guardian began to loose his sigt as the air in his lungs left him...he was running out of air. In a desperate attempt at survival, Kaezu let loose a massive Sonic Roar that shot all the way to the surface of the waters. The ocean exploded in a frenzy of bubbles and violent waves as the gigantic burst of air ripped through with violent winds. The Sonic Roar had released the pressure in Kaezu's system, freeing the remaining air in his air-sacs and nasal horn. His body began to feed off of the oxygen that the sacs now released into his system. Kaezu regained his sigt as he drifted motioness in the waters. His body was too exhausted to attempt at freeing himself, and at the same time was frozen from his fear of being underwater...
The Oodaki, sensing no vibrations from the previously active Kaezu, went back in for the kill. Lashing out with two of it's remainign tentacles, the Oodaki snared Kaezu with relative ease. The Guardian, now rested and still feeding off of his deposits of oxygen, immedialty reacted to the enslaught. The two colossal titans began to struggle...clawing and slashing at one another as they sank into the deep ocean...
A group of peasant Kimodas looked on in horror from one of their large, bubble like structures as two massive shadows filled their view of the relatively bright ocean. The Oodaki and Kaezu were mauling at eachother, unaware that they were headed straight for a massive Kimodan structure...
The group of Kimodas fled for the remote side of their structure as the two battling titans came within dangerous range. Women grabbed their children as the men formed a protective wall around their loved ones in an instinct of war and passion. They lifted their weapons in preparation for the oncoming disaster...
"Losh miak, Dom- ptai."
We are doomed, my friend, spoke a taller Kimodan toward the front of the group...
"Krait mot lill, isaa reil boe gresa..."
All is not lost, for there is always hope, replied his friend, who was trembling with fear...
The intelligent beings braced themselves for impact as the structure began to vibrate from the pressure of the water between it and the raging Kaiju.
Like a bolt of lightning, a slim but enormous body shot out from behind the structure, ramming into the two clashing titans who were only inches away from destroying the large group of Kimodans...
The group of reptilian beings opened their eyes and unclenched their weapons as their savior shot out into their view...
"Sylus! Mish ia' gresado Sylus!"
Sylus, our savior Sylus!, yelled numerous Kimodans as their guardian shot across the ocean toward Kaezu and the Oodaki.
Sylus: Warrior of the Oceans quickly began its assault, attacking the Oodaki with its large tusks. Sylus wrapped its slender body around the Oodaki's bulk, squeezing it with great intensity. The Warrior of the Oceans then let loose an electrical discharge, rapidly pulsating current after current of electric volts into it's captive. Kaezu looked on in amazement as he stared into the focused eyes of Sylus. The Warrior returned the gaze...and as their eyes met...the two Kaiju immediatly sensed the good in both of their souls...
Realizing that Sylus was another Guardian like himself, Kaezu let loose his tensed muscles. His temporary relaxation, however, was soon interrupted by another shortage of Oxygen in his body. Kaezu's eyelids began to spaz as his blank pupils rolled back into his head. Sylus, sensing the lowering levels of Kaezu's life force, immediatly ceased his discharge, dropping the charred Oodaki to drift down into the ocean.
Sylus darted for Kaezu, wrapping his slender tail around Kaezu's left arm. The Warrior of the Oceans did not let up speed, and continued to paddle fiercely with his four flippers in order to ferry the massive Guardian of Life to the surface. Sylus did not look back, but felt Kaezu's mind slip as his oxygen fully depleted. The Warrior, in a final act of dispair, slingshotted his own body though the water, hurling his tail full force in front of him. Sylus let loose his grip of Kaezu...The Guardian flew through the waters like a torpedo, eventually slamming through the surface of the waters and into the darkening skies. Kaezu's massive hide met the sandy bay with a gigantic thud, kicking up a tremendous sandstorm...
The Warrior of the Oceans darted toward the surface, bursting forth from the waters with haste. His long neck peered out of the crashing waves, watching Kaezu with great intensity. The Guardian layed motioness on the beach, his eyes cold and blank. Sylus let out a long shreil, shaking the sand on the bay around Kaezu...
In a brilliant display of sand and water, Kaezu's neck jolted up from the beach, his eyes flying open as they gleamed of a deep, bright blue. Kaezu met Sylus' shreil with one of his own Trumpeting roars...Gulls and Caldaks fled the nearby lands as the massive roars shook the trees...
Kaezu stood proud as he stared deeply into the eyes of Sylus: Warrior of the Oceans. The two Kaiju seemed to take comfort in knowing that they were not alone in their never ending struggle against all that threatens the good in nature's creations...

This one was great!
The realism was very good, like how Kaezu needed oxygen (and how he got some) to survive underwater. I gotta love that Sylus, he and Kaezu are an excellent team. Oodaki is very cool as well; I haven't seen any art of him yet though- I better go check the Art place, I haven't been there for awhile. Your use of words is beyond descriptive, I can picture the entire story happening like a movie!

I'm gonna save the third part for a nighty read on Friday, but I got in I and II. Phenominal. Some of the best writing I've seen, and extremley descriptive, which is a one-up for you in my book. Your Kaiju are some of the mosr original I've ever seen, and Kaezu still puts on an awesome show. I really wish you'd try a long epic one day of him ;)

Finished part three, awesome, pure gold. My favorite tale so far. I loved the Kimodans, and their entire race and culture so far. Oodaki was really cool, and I adored Sylus to the core. This is great my friend ^_~
