Reading: Michael Demiurgos (New Earth)
many years ago, during Lucifer ‘s rebellion in Heaven, Michael led God ‘s forces against Lucifer but during the struggle he was felled by Sandalphon when he exposed his back. From that point on, he was kept in enslavement by “ Lucifer ‘s follower ” whose grand scheme was to use Michael ‘s genetic material to create an army of angels with the Demiurge inside them. The majority of these children were failures but one, his prize, was not, for evening better than having the Demiurge inside the child, the child was a female, meaning she could sexually create even more servants for him. This child was Elaine Belloc. But before Sandalphon could put these plans to realization, Lucifer came to collect both Elaine and Michael from Sandalphon for he himself needed them. Michael was dying and should he die, the handout of the power within him would destroy the solid universe. thus, Lucifer brought Michael to where Lux once stood in Los Angeles and Lucifer was finally granted entrance into his own region, for it was the merely place it would be safe for Michael to die, and there it was that Lucifer impaled his brother and the Demiurge filled the Void. however, Michael was reborn, healthy and full of liveliness once again and he and his buddy parted ways, for the two could never agree, fighting on opposite sides of the spectrum and Michael returns to Heaven where he sought out Yahweh ‘s guidance … counseling he did not approve of. So it is that Michael, the angel possibly most patriotic to The Presence was exiled from Heaven and he begins a quest with his diverse companions, a quest to find and rescue his daughter .
The Wolf Beneath the Tree
After he fled Destiny ‘s table in a fad, Michael flew straight to Heaven with his daughter Elaine trying her best to keep up with him, until she ultimately did thus on the outskirts of the Silver City. By then, however, she had no probability to confront her founder for he had neared his target and lighted upon the ledge of a tower with but a individual window that opened to a room at the top of the column. As he stood there he merely turned to Elaine, their eyes locked, and she understood as he told her to leave that he was going to try and save creation. That room was The Logos, the place where God ‘s voice lives, and once within Michael lay on the floor like a child, pouring out the Dunamis Demiurgos, God ‘s baron into all of the things, renewing Yahweh ‘s name on every atom in the population. Michael had sacrificed himself to save his don ‘s abandoned creation. When Uriel is told of these events by Elaine he seems to agree with Michael ‘s reason and believes it to be for the better, but Lucifer interrupts and says that while the attempt may have worked under convention circumstances, a newfangled varying has been added to the equality, Fenris, and he ‘s on the move to Yggdrasil. That is why, against Uriel ‘s plead, Lucifer himself goes to the Logos and entering the single windowpane he bellows at his brother, ordering him to awake. Michael hears nothing of path or at least makes no response thus the Morningstar places his palms flat on the tower and with his own incredible power incinerates the structure. Emerging from the debris a intelligibly enrage Michael gathers himself rather quickly and says, “ Speak promptly Lucifer. Or I call this host to witness — you will not speak again. ” Whether a conflict result is never revealed but it seems Lucifer wins Michael over, at least temporarily, as Michael, Lucifer, Elaine and the Host fountainhead to Svartalfheim where Michael still remains distrustful of his brother. Lucifer seems to have clued him into some things but Michael distillery is n’t clear on everything rise that despite his power, he does n’t hold the cognition Lucifer does. Michael is confused as to why they need to be in Svartalfheim if their travel to Yggdrasil wo n’t be physical. Lucifer responds by telling him that The World Tree expects to be approached from such a steering which in relativity, should make things at least a little easier for the three of them. Their travel is long and hard, but never in truth explained how they made it, although Charlie Gilmour notices them while making his own journey to Yggdrasil and he says that he saw three angels, one bleed office ( Michael ), another will ( Lucifer ) and the one-third something from her eyes ( Elaine ). finally, after Charlie, Fenris, Abonsam and Bet reach the World Tree and get settled in, some ways away Lucifer, Michael and Elaine all plummet to the worldly concern, both Michael and Lucifer nowadays unconscious mind and Elaine blind, making them the perfect victims for a certain Trickster. In the fields of Yggdrasil, Michael groggily awakes, eyes opening decrepit as he mutters, “ L — Lucifer ? ” Getting to his hands and knees he speaks again as he sees his daughter, choking for breath while Lucifer ‘s outstretched arm suspends her in the air and Michael speaks again, louder this time, “ brother ? ” swiftly he clambers to his feet and rushes to get between the two, trying to push Elaine off from his brother, warning Lucifer to stay away from Elaine. But Lucifer ‘s lone reply is, “ Morningstar ? I am Fenris. I am The beast ! ” With that, the maddened Lucifer thrusts Elaine ‘s principal into the side of Michael ‘s face, taking both of them out. Lucifer and Michael now begin their greatest and final competitiveness, Michael is trying his best not to harm his brother holding back Lucifer ‘s fists.
Yet it seems a show of effect will be necessary when Michael is lying upon the grind, his wings flattened beneath his back, he raises his correct hand, apologizes to his brother for what is to come ( seeing as Lucifer is not himself ) and than from his hand bursts forth a white energy that envelops Lucifer, taking its toll on him and causing the Morningstar to cry out in pain. now within a massive crater, Michael stands over Lucifer whose on his hands and knees, both of their wings are in tatters, what ‘s left of their clothes torn, blood streaming over their bodies. Smoke rises around their bodies and although Michael is stronger, he makes one black error, he tries to reason with his brother, telling satan that it is not he who acts. Michael tells Lucifer to fight it, to be himself, lest all their trouble and feat be for naught and creation falls. But Lucifer, even possessed plainly turns his head to the side, blood dripping from his mouth as he grins wickedly at his brother, “ excellent. ” then in a film over of speed, he grabs his brother and Lucifer takes to the air, glowing with department of energy as he takes his brother higher into the heavens. As they ascend Michael inactive pleads with his buddy, “ Morningstar — brother — I do n’t want to kill you — ” but Lucifer merely scoffs at these words as he points out that with his broken wings, Michael ‘s potency is failing. His own rant frankincense begins, “ I am the furnace in which you will be unmade. I am your death. ” But Michael remains refractory and responds by telling Lucifer that he will be the death of all and that it will wholly be his own doing and his alone. Lucifer heeds not these words in his folly and a massive ejection of energy erupts from within him, engulfing both sons of Yahweh, leaving them both to plummet to the land, burning as they fall. Michael and Lucifer crash through the upper branches of Yggdrasil, snapping them as they continue their descent, lost to view for some clock time, but then after things seem to calm down with the deviate of Fenris, a break Lucifer stumbles over to the identify where his brother lays in a pond of blood, at the base of the tree, his own coriaceous wings are naught but spines now, jutting from his back. Cleared of mind he weakly speaks his brother ‘s name, but it is besides late. Michael is dying, the destiny of initiation sealed, but the latter issue is not the current problem for Michael ‘s death provides a trouble in and of itself. And therefore he calls out to Elaine, asking her to come to him, the blinded Elaine follows the voice of her forefather until she is kneeling at his side. She promises him that she will stay by his slope public treasury he dies if he would like but he cuts her off, for that is not why he called her. Within himself he holds power, Yahweh ‘s office, the Dunamis Demiurgos, and should he die, this exponent would be released, overwhelming all of creation and destroying it. Elaine argues that creation will be destroyed anyhow, but Michael ensures her that that summons will take days or even weeks but that he is dying NOW and she must act immediately. Seeing as she is the alone other Demiurge, it is her duty to take the Dunamis Demiurgos from him. Lucifer interrupts by saying that Elaine is besides weak, that she can not do it and indeed withdraw Michael ‘s attention to the Morningstar. He asks to exchange apologies with his brother, as he never thought it would have to come to this but Lucifer tells him, that Michael is not at demerit, that he himself is to blame and the brothers seem to make a silent peace with one another. This being said, Michael then returns his attention to his daughter, explaining to her that she must not only let his power menstruate into her, but she must contain it a well but in concern, she tells him she knows not how to perform such a feat. Michael and Elaine become more panicky as Michael tells his daughter that should she survive she will find herself with a great many duties, though he believes in her ability to rise to them, but Elaine plainly has last regrets on her heed and begins apologizing to her don, for not trying to talk to him, for not coming to him. then it is that her church father utters his last words, proving that he can acknowledge his own faults “ It would have done no good. I was proud and refractory. I could have sought you out. I could have — ” and thus he dies, Elaine hovering him, a yell rip from his throat as his nigh-uncontainable energy bursts forth from his body, engulfing Yggdrasil and all within its circumference.
Powers and Abilities
- This character is an adaptation of Michael the Archangel, a character in traditional stories. These include, but may not be limited to religious texts, myth, and/or folk lore. More information on the original can be found at Wikipedia.org.
- In the beginning, Michael was given the Demiurge power by Yahweh, which gave him the ability to enable the physical creation of the cosmos to occur. However, although it was Michael’s Demiurge power that created the universe out of nothingness, it was Lucifer who willed it into existence using his infinite will. Michael’s only limitation is that he cannot manipulate what he has created, meaning that he cannot give shape to his creation. Only his brother, Lucifer, is capable of doing that. Together, Michael and Lucifer are capable of creating entire multiverses.
