Walking away the raven-cloaked man would stop upon hearing the gun click. Totally uncalled for. But he like always barely reacted or showed any fear. He turned his head over his shoulder to observe the man aiming a pistol at him. Eden had no idea what kind of bullets he carried in that weapon, but he didn't figure it would do much against him. Not with his special ability about him. August would try to assert his dominance then as he regaled his promises to Evelyn over to Eden. Staying ever quiet, he did not respond or move until August lowered the gun. Maybe he was just making a point, a show, with that gun. It brought a small smirk to the demon's lips. He scoffed in a chuckle and would then start to walk to the side of the boat. August demanded Eden explain himself, and for a moment the vampire would likely figure he'd never get a word out from this stranger. "I don't remember much of being alive," he said when he reached the edge of the boat. Putting his hands on the banister he looked out to the open sea and then spun a tale for the curious captain. "I remember that girl, or someone like it. The memory is lost to me. What I do remember is being born in Hell. Crawling my way out of the torture pits and proving myself worthy to the higher lords. One such demon who took note of me was a dragon named Balal. For centuries I did his bidding with no care for the consequences. And why should I? I was a demon now. As deadly as I was when I was alive. "Until one day someone catches my eye. A little puppet brought in by Lord Balal. Evelyn Tenebris. She was stark naked and being walked around like a dog on a leash. At first I thought nothing of his captured pray until I saw her die and be brought back to life like it was nothing. I'd never seen such power. And the more I watched her being literally stripped of her flesh and bones and then walking it off, it reminded me of something of my past life. "I don't know who that girl is to me, but I know she is very important. But I didn't know how or why. Until I heard the prophecy. As proclaimed by the demon witch Sybinthe, Evelyn Tenebris would bring about the downfall of Balal. From then on I knew it was my destiny to help her escape and train her, protect her, and assist her with bringing down the dragon of darkness." Eden would then turn around and face August. "So that is my story. I saved Evelyn from Hell and I intend to protect her with my life until such a time when the prophecy is complete and that vile demon is brought to an end."
