As fear came closer to the frightening dragon he then realized that his brother wasn’t even a Spectral dragon but the carnage of full darkness. Fear took more time as to looking at Illuminous’s new curse, his scales had changed from white to a crimson black, his eye’s were all black except the iris which was a terrifying shade of red, and his teeth were now sharper than before sharing the frightening grin he possessed.
“Illumus, this isn’t a spectral form…..to be honest I don’t know what this is, all I know is that it is radiating lots of darkness.” Said fear looking Illuminous over. As Illumus took a closer look he found that fear was right, it was just darkness, or at least some carnage of it.
“So, how and when did I gain this curse?” said Illuminous a bit angry and confused. Fear took the time to think before he spoke, “What if it was cynder? I mean she did fill you with darkness when you were a child.” Illuminous’s expression turned horrifying as he stared at fear, “WHAT IS YOUR DEAL WITH CYNDER LATELY? WHAT HAS SHE DONE TO YOU THAT HAS GOT YOU SO JUDGEMENTIVE?” Fear began to back up a bit before saying, “I-I’m sorry brother, I didn’t mean to upset you it’s just I….” fear was interrupted by Illuminous as he lifted his paw.
“ I know how you feel but that was a long time ago, she was corrupted and that’s it, besides this is far from cynders doing.” “Then who had this power besides convexis?” asked fear, Illuminous had taken some time to think before answering. “I think it was malefor’s doing” “…malefor……why do you say that?” asked fear. “It was him who had filled my head with lies and so the same would be for the darkness, if not him then there might be another dragon we have to worry about other than convexis.” Illumus said looking at the night sky.
“…..so with this new form I don’t think you can be called Illuminous or fear, so what name do you feel is best for this form?” asked fear, Illuminous just sat and pondered the idea for a moment before he made that devious grin, “Shadowlurker.”
Fear just sat there looking him over and comparing the name to his form, “….it fits you, I like it.” “Now as to what you were asking about why I think convexis is innocent is cause I had a dream of her or I think it was her, it was a small child that looked like her anyway, but with a dragon standing next to the child. I can’t make out the dragon but I feel the child is convexis…..she looked happier than she is now….much more pure.” Explained Shadowlurker. Fear just sat there with a face that looked kind of derp like. “Wh-what?”
“Yes, that is why I need to find the chronicler, only he would know more about convexis….but for now we need to find out more about the kidnapping of darkfire.” Said shadowlurker. “…..you mean dragonnapping.” They both turned to see before them Drake, Illuminous’s brother. Illuminous changed back into his normal form before asking drake what he was doing here. “Oh I thought you might need help.” Said drake with enthusiasm.
