December the 23rd, 2567.
It is time... what other races celebrate as chrismas, my race celebrated as a day of loss and hardship. the clossure of 1 journey and the opening of another. Zekk knew all about this day and how I dreaded it. It was through the Xionian's sacrofice the rest of the universe was given hope and possesions. But now he was 1... the Last Xionian to exist in this realm of space.
He decided to go with Zekk to a nearby Forest moon. He still had 4 hours before the 24th came, but he wanted to make a recording for his beloved friends and midna, his greatest Student. She would carry on his legacy, the Gift of Pure Magic. Zekk was terribly sad, He had really only had 1 friend who he could trust with his life and now his friend was leaving this realm... giving up everything for this realm... including his Immortality, his Magics, His Coorperation, His friends, and his Right to exist in this realm.
Everflyer knew the Laws set down by the gods that so long ago prowled the galaxy. He had to give up his name even. Hopefully this would be enough of a sacrofice to last the Universe another 100 years. but when the time came, the Sacrofice would be used up and Magic, Hope, Life and Death would leave the Universe Unless another race took the Xionian's Place all races would be haulted and another Big bang would renew the Universe IN this realm of space only.
Zekk had a choice too. he could come with Ever, But like ever he would have to give up everything. but since he didn't practise Magic he could keep his name... this ment Zekk would would only add 20 years onto the time line.
"Zekk... I can pilot for a while... do you want to make a recording or something for friends?" Ever asked, kinda gloomy.
"No one will miss me Ever, I was a trader and nothing more... I have decided to go with you because I have nothing here to live for" He replied. But after a while he took the recorder and went into the Cargo hold. After that he loaded up the message and sent it onto the Primus Council. "Maybe Vossh might miss me... I'll send it incase" He said.
Everflyer took the Recording Device and went into the Cargo Hold. "If you are recievign this I am..." He stopped, rewound and paused. This wasn't easy for him. He pressed the record "Dear T.U.F.C, Allies and Friends. I haven't been honest. There is a Secret the Xionians kept from the Rest of the Universe... The day you call Christmas, the 24th of december is actually made by us. We made it possible. the only reason it's special is because alot of Possitive energy pulses through the universe, spreading Happiness. This also prevents the Universe from collapsing in on itself. the universe was ment to end 24,000 years ago. with our regular sacrofics we could prevent it. I will sacrofice myself for the sake of this universe. you have 120 years more to live unless a race decides to take up this burden and continue where the Xionians left off. It is not a great Burden and requires very little from the race. But I beg of you, The universe now lays in the leading races of this universe. I will be in another realm with Zekk, for that is the price I have payed for giving you maxium time to prepare... I am send the Laws of Life with this message. It explains the laws set down by the First gods, It will only reveil itself to the race that decides to take on the burden. it explain the meaning of life and reveils the secrets of the universe. Like a cheat book to life and it can only be read by the burden race. I wish you fair well, I have sacroficed much in order to ensure your survival. good luck and may the Ancestors be with you". He cut the transmission.
On the surface Ever could see the ruins of the gods. this was the only planet never discovered. It orbited no sun, it provided it's own heat and light, it's own day and night. Everflyer and Zekk held their head high and walked onto the platform the had magic dancing all over it. It was alchemy in magic design but it also showed signs of other magics in it. Some Everflyer didn't recognise. But in the center was the most precious of magic forms and the most powerful symbol of that magic. The Magic of the gods, The Symbol Of Eternity. It shone the brightest out of all the symbols.
A great bellow from above was heard has 4 Massive birds swooped down and landed on 4 symbols on the opposite side of the Platform. the symbols where crest magic, Everflyer could read them. Light, Dark, Neutral and Meta. The 4 Gods that created the Universe. "You understand what you have stepped into Everflyer?" Meta asked.
"yes, This is an equation for life, death and the continuous bonds which link everything together. Even races are engraved into the Cricle and events that have come to pass, are happening and are to happen. Anyone who reads it is said to posses the infinate knowleadge of the universe... But fortunately no one can read the center piece, Only the Gods can read that. the final piece that ties the entire equation together into balance" He replied, Ever then Went of his knees and held his arms out. " I also know it is time, My sacrofice will also bring on the destruction of the Xionian empire... this means in the next 120 years a new race will be elected to take our place."
The Gods Gathered together and transformed from great birds into their prime elements. Light turned into a shining humanoid begin, Darkness turned into a A black hooded Dragon/humanoid creature. Netural Turned into a Crystal/humanoid begin. Meta engulfed the Platform in a bubble.
No matter how much ever had tried, he could never understand Meta's perpouse... It was a 4 ethics which was beyond the comprehension of any race. No one could ever understand it. everflyer never tried, nor questioned it. it existed and that is what mattered.
Everflyer could feel their magic taking effect. everything was been drained from him. his metal body turned into flesh and blood, his powers disappeared. Everlfyer then remembered by the laws of the universe he had no gender. Was he to chose one or would the gods decide?...
It was the gods choice... He accepted their decision without hassel. They had chosen Female. Because Zekk was male they had to even the it out... Balance it like everything else in the universe. Everflyer didn't mind, but he wasn't everflyer anymore. Who was he? Who would he be?
Meta said "You are now MidNight, Rise MidNight Ranger of the gods, your new journey has begun. you and Zekk are going to the Realm of Discovery... a completely unique realm where Space doesn't exist. there you will train to be a hero and conquer the growing unbalance there. We are with you"
A Great Flash and MidNight and Zekk disappear, never to return again. Never to set foot in the realm of History again.
Or so we thought... MidNights return, was to be the downfall of us all.
