How he got here wasn't really important. Perhaps a mishap in ripping tears in the fabric of time and space, or an intentional endeavor, either way he ended up here.

He stretched, loosening up and dusting off the tribal clothing he'd acquired from his grandmother, and looked around to see exactly where he had ended up. It'd been a while since he had allowed himself to just rightfully explore his abilities, and since he had Odea watching the house, and his daughter, he was free to do so. It was just a problem when he couldn't ever tell where he was.

"This looks... kinda familiar... maybe?"

He shrugged.

The ambiguity of the expanse was fitting for this space, which was both hidden and protected, yet, familiar to one who had been upon its atmosphere before. This realm, the border of the Veritas Universe, looked just the same as any other Universe, yet, once within vicinity, one who was known to the Universe would be greeted with haste.


"Welcome To The Veritas," the voice of a woman spoke, as a large bright white light pouring with a myriad of colors opened up to swallow the man whole. There, he would be set upon a platform that materialized underneath his feet, with an image of the land of the Veritas spreading out from it, only in a miniaturized replication of what actually was. "This Is The Dimension Gate, Which Connects To Any Realm Of Your Desire." Because the Veritas was a request based operation, more or less, whenever someone desired to do something, meet someone or go somewhere, the Veritas complied based on the interaction and request. "What Is It That You Would Like To Do?"

Koudo was forced to shield his eyes from the myriad of bright colored lights that engulfed him. Not only was it blinding, but it was especially so with his sensitive dragonic senses. If hadn't of shielded his eyes then he'd be seeing stars for the rest of his life.

Once the high beams died down, he moved his arm and blinked a couple of times to adjust to the new scenery around him. Below his feet, there was a platform that showed the land that he had come to and he immediately recognized it. There was no way he wouldn't recognize a place he had been to before; A place where he had lived a nice bit of his life.

"See who's talking to me. Kinda rude to remain a disembodied voice, unless you are a disembodied voice. In which case... my bad."

"I Am The Veritas," the woman's voice echoed in the Dimension Gate, "And You Know Me Well." Soon after she spoke the second time, the disembodied voice materialized over the planar extension in a form that was familiar to the one who had returned to the lands he'd known. "I Am Tina." Her voice was relatively monotonous, but it was clear that because Koudo knew the land, he also knew Tina, even if he'd never seen her in a physical or human manifestation in all his days.


"We've Met Before," she went on, but did not say much else beyond that. Her form was that of a maiden with long silverish-blue hair which shined in the soft rainbow lights that emanated all about, and her body was covered in a black skin-tight unitard. "I Remember You." The way she spoke was as if she were only reading off information, and her eyes were both blank yet filled with a great deal of depth and mysticism. Fer face, which was shiny and a translucent off-blue, something like crystal, was expressionless. "Will That Be All?"

Koudo placed his hands on his hips and squinted at the girl that appeared, trying to place her face anywhere that he may have seen her. He couldn't say he'd ever heard the name, but Koudo had always had trouble with remembering names anyway. There were few occasions where he remembered someone, or something, that he didn't come to blows with.

He leaned in a little bit, then leaned back and paced around her. "Nah, your name's not ringin' a bell, but I couldn't mistake them features no where." While he definitely couldn't place her, she bore a STRONG resemblance to a certain family of individuals that had vanished from the world he called home.

He stopped his pacing in front of the construct of a girl, folding his massive arms as he did so, towering over her in terms of height. "Nah. I wanna bother somebody, if this really is the Veritas. Surprise me with who, the headache I'm gonna give 'em is all the same to me." He shrugged his shoulders, "Think you can do that Tina?"

"Affirmative," Tina replied, having an idea of just who that person in reference was. She, as the Veritas, itself, had watched over the inhabitants of the planet for a long time, even when she was very young and still just a babe that was rooted to the Lost World when her father gave her life. She never showed herself in humanshape to anyone except her family, so it was feasible that Koudo, that she knew well, would not know her in the same fashion. "I Am Certain She Will Be Pleased." The ominous words foreshadowed the appearance of one that the two were very close to, yet, perhaps those words that Tina had spoken were an understatement... and maybe even an exaggeration, knowing her.

Tina stood there expressionlessly, but called out the name "Triere..." of which echoed throughout the plane as if Tina had shouted, when in actuality her voice was naught but a whisper. "... You Have A Visitor." When summoned, the rebellious one should show up, since she was aware that she never had any visitors beyond one, by her own nature. Tina simply stood idly by, becoming literally idle, both unblinking and unmoving, almost as if becoming totally unresponsive once she called out to Triere, herself.

There was a brief moment of silence after the name 'Triere' was called, as if no one had heard nor been summoned. It seemed like nothing was going to occur at all, from how long it took for a response. Yet, eventually, before it got too terribly long and the silence too terribly awkward, another disembodied voice, this one with much more flavor than Tina's, would echo all about. "That has-been?" she scoffed. "Spare me."

Suddenly, overhead, a large intricate seal appeared, with frosty mist pouring out from the edges of its inscriptions. The icy rune shattered like glass, with crystalline shards falling about everywhere and reconstructing themselves as shard-like wings behind the vessel that daintily descended from the other end of the broken seal from beyond the portal that it covered. With arms cross, a glossy dress of translucent clarity with an off-white hue and bluish hem, and both hair and bow to match, the young Triere would drop down just above the ground, letting her glass slippers hover just over the ground as were accustomed, with her arms crossed. Her piercing red eyes were just as fiery as ever. "Oh? Who are you?" She said with an air of sarcasm. "Have we met?" Her glare could melt the ice caps.

Koudo smirked, but only a little bit. He guessed Tina had to have some knowledge about him if she was able to deduce the perfect person for him to mess with. He would have accepted if she'd called Chita too, but after the last time he saw her he wasn't really sure he was prepared, mentally, for a reunion. While being just friends was all fine and dandy, getting friend-zoned still hurt the young drake's pride.

He waited, for a while, after Tina put out her call and went eerily silent, in the sinister silence. He got a little uncomfortable staring at the, almost literally, dead silent Tina and approached her, curiously, to see what the deal was. He didn't touch her, having learned to respect some semblance of boundaries, but he did get unbearably close to her her to look in her almost lifeless eyes and search for any sign of life, or brain function.

"Weird..."

He couldn't help but whisper, but the docile tones of a familiar dialect filled his ears like nails on a chalk board. He could smell her, and feel her cold, before her ice seal appeared and was shattered, and he turned around, standing beside Tina, to fold his arms and bear proper witness to her flashy arrival. It was an arrival that he could respect, he never used his portals in such a fashion, but he loved a flashy entrance.

He rose a hand to stroke his chin, rubbing his rough fingers against the five o'clock shadow that was beginning to form. "I don't believe we have, actually. I seem to remember someone that wore a black dress." His response didn't do much to deflect her fiery gaze and cutting sarcasm in her voice, but he was willing to return the sardonicism without the burning glare.

She didn't look that much different at least, even her energy gave off the same signature, but Koudo was sure that she'd be at least somewhat surprised by what stood before her, if she could see past her tsundere tendencies. He stood at least half a foot taller than the last time they'd seen each other, much more built, in terms of muscle mass and definition, and a longer crop of raven colored locks than he'd ever sported as a snow haired lad. Still, his eyes remained that same deep sapphire   as he met her crimson stare.

"Don't mess with me," she snapped, remembering vividly the very dark day she adorned her dark dress. "I definitely wasn't in my right mind, dealing with you." Triere's eyes cut through Koudo like sharp daggers with burning edges, and a glow that matched. The perceptive daughter of the most perceptive Tensei did indeed notice all of these rough and rugged changes of the physical demeanor of Koudo, of which she was definitely most pleased with... Yet, her own memories, which were trapped in place like crystal in stasis, could not help but to recall the events of the long past all the way up to the now present. Her eyes narrowed. "You filled out nicely," she said with a scoffing smirk, yet did not budge from her spot nor her position, "For a vile betrayer, that is."

Though Triere had many thoughts buzzing about her skull, many of which were, as usual, to give Koudo quite the wallop, no matter what his physique and demeanor were like, she refrained from succumbing to her own draconic tendencies, since she was practicing being more level-headed nowadays after having to clean up the whole Veritas as punishment for losing her cool and messing things up in the first place. "... So, what brings you back?" she continued on with an exasperated sigh, almost like she were venting steam from within. "I KNOW you didn't come here to see me." She rolled her eyes. "Don't even try to feed me that hot garbage." Knowing Koudo to be the Cassanova type he was, if she didn't say things like that right at the beginning, he might try to bullshit her with that dragonbreath technique. She wasn't having it.

Sure, maybe it was a touchy subject, but Koudo had long since forgiven her. They even talked it out the last time they saw each other, after he got friend-zoned by Chita. Now, the people that were normally around him... they were a very different story. Thankfully, she needn't worry about the twins because they were now a singular being who, at face value, cared very little about the affairs of Koudo. If it didn't directly affect her, or Yui, then she allowed him to do as he liked and deal with the consequences.

Besides Mana and the twins, Koudo never told anyone else about what happened. Maybe out of fear, at the time before her family disappeared, or out of shame and embarrassment, but he was able to deal with those feelings like he had learned to deal with everything else tragic that ever happened to him. Unfortunately, Mana wasn't so forgiving, and certainly held a grudge, even though they weren't dating at the time, and weren't now either.

He stopped stroking his chin and let out a hearty laugh, reaching to scratch behind his head, "Yeeeah, I actually have no idea how I ended up here." Truthfully, he was just fiddling around with the intricacies of his abilities and just so happened to end up here at the dimensional gate of the Veritas. He wasn't sure if he had unconsciously wished to come here, and his tear in space and time reacted in kind, or if it was just a random occurrence. Either way, whether he was lost or not, he was kind of glad he ended up somewhere that he had some formal knowledge of and not a random dimension filled with energy vampires or something. Yikes.

He stopped scratching his head and folded his arms again, "I am really glad to see you though, even if your tsundere tendencies won't let you bring yourself to believe me and get the warm fuzzies because I said it." Genuinely, he was glad. To him, it had been... at least 2 years since he'd seen any semblance of the Veritas, or was able to stumble across it's universal barrier. Traveling to alternate universes wasn't something that he could just... do, and he'd lost access to the device he'd used before. Destroying it in a fit of rage over the friend-zone thing. No matter how laid-back and lucid he could seem, some times he just couldn't control his temper.

Anyway, being able to, now, stumble across the universal barrier without the device was a testament to the amount of power he had gained over the time that they hadn't seen each other, but the fact that he wasn't sure how he got here was a testament to how untrained he appeared to be. Koudo never neglected his training though, he just focused more on the abilities that kept him exceptionally lethal and didn't have much time for experimentation with the more... whimsical abilities in his arsenal and how they had grown.

Triere's fiery gaze remained intact, but her demeanor, itself, was frigid, in complete contrast. She hadn't moved, seeming similar to Tina, yet there was clearly life in her and consciousness beyond just being a guide for another at the time. She gazed Koudo deeply in the eyes, with her own not shifting nor blinking for a second, as if they would burn through his sockets. Yet, after hearing his words and looking into his soul, as was a signature trait of those that came from her lineage, with a honed precision that made it natural and nothing necessary to be learned, like others, the burning eyes suddenly came to a close.

"Fine," she said chiefly, that being the only form of recognition to her believing of his repentance. They did indeed settle a lot last time, even if Triere, herself, continued to dwell on certain things that happened afterward. "I hope you've been well. At least." She opened her eyes and they still looked just as penetrating as before, but her voice was much less harsh, even if it was just as sharp. "You're welcome here, I guess, since nothing tried to kill you, or anything." If the Veritas picked up on any sort of threat, then there were several measures that would have occurred even before he landed that he would have dealt with outside the Dimension Gate. "... A lot has changed, though, even if a lot has stayed the same." She noticed that Koudo was alone in his travels, and also that, from the definition of his physique, he had certainly been through a lot. The distinguishing marks of this were more in his face and his tone than on his body, and his mannerisms did indeed reveal much to the eyes of the young Tensei woman. Their eyes were normally their best trait, taken after their father.

"... Must've been some tough times, I take it, if you're alone." She felt herself saying this presumptuously, even if she wasn't aware of what exactly had gone down. "... But, as my father designed it, the Veritas is indeed a refuge, should you so take advantage of it. It's just as much a home as it was when it was even just the Dusk, alone. So..." That may have been, in her own way, the manner of which she would welcome him inside. Yet, with her blatantly Tsundere nature, she wouldn't be the one leaping at an opportunity to say 'come in for a spot of tea' or anything. She could be cordial like that when she wished, but for someone like Koudo? She'd rather be rough around the edges, like she was accustomed when they were both growing up. That was how she was naturally, anyway, despite her pristine and glittery appearance and nearly haughty demeanor.

Once she acquiesced, she allowed Koudo the satisfaction of seeing her defeated. Even if it wasn't anything more than a verbal victory, it was still something. If memory served him correctly, and he always remember confrontations, there were seldom times he had actually overcome Priere in actual combat, so this was a moral victory.

He didn't allow himself to relish, though in more youthful years he would have, not that he was that much older. Circumstances had changed him and he had and experienced many things that forced him to either grow up or get out of the way. Koudo's personality didn't allow him to ignore any challenge, even if he didn't necessarily tackle it immediately, and his pragmatism allowed him to tackle the seemingly impossible with only a small amount of thought.

Koudo was alone, now, because he couldn't take Yui with him when he wasn't entirely sure how the particular power that brought him here really worked anymore. He'd not only be a bad role model, but a bad father, if he put her life in danger while he tried to figure this all out. The twins were more useful to him as the singular being, known as Odea, who wielded more power than either of them could ever dream of having, and while that cut down man power, it increased the lethality of the unit and allowed for a more natural home environment for Yui where she had a singular paternal figure and singular maternal figure. Okami, who would have accompanied him, had all but become Yui's best friend and most loyal protector, so she barely left the girl's side now.

He smiled. If that was the best that she was going to give him as a welcome, no matter how lackluster it was, he would accept in kind and approached her, "Excellent!" Casually, he snaked his tree trunk of an arm around her petite waist and lifted her higher than she was floating, holding her under his arm like a bundle of logs, "Let's go!" Certainly he'd learned to respect boundaries, but for someone like Priere? He knew she liked when he got handsy, even if she wouldn't allow herself to admit it. He saw her eyeballing him like he was a piece of prime cut meat. Besides it was a special occasion, she could let it slide right? Wasn't like he was trying to cop a feel or anything.

"Yeah, yeah..." Triere said in an almost mocking tone, averting her gaze and turning her nose in the other direction as she was lifted up into the air. "Don't let it go to your head." She swiftly belted Koudo one over the head once she was closer to his head; hard enough to feel, but only a love tap, before crossing her arms again and adjusting herself on his huge, broad shoulder like sitting in a chair. "Tina!" She called out, already having a destination in mind, "Take us to my house. The Ice Palace." It had been a while since Koudo had been there, but that place was intact as a structure of crystal, in the Crystal City of the Dawn. Given Koudo's abilities and the nature of the Crystal City of the Dawn, it was actually the best place for him to be, and could provide a certain leverage for him and learning to control his abilities and enhance them, quite possibly in the clock tower, which was something like both a hyperbolic time chamber and a spacio-temporal gateway. "I guess we can catch up more there." She partially hoped that her father wasn't home... Though she wondered if Koudo would want to see him.

"Affirmative," Tina suddenly called out as though she'd been completely coherent and conscious the entire time, without skipping a beat, actually. Before their eyes, an image of the Ice Palace sprouted up from the model of the Veritas that they stood upon, just like one looking at the overview of a World Map in a video game, and when Tina's vessel she was using at the time dispersed in a burst of crystal, the two, Koudo and Triere, would begin to glow in a shimmering light that drew them both down into the Ice Palace, which began to grow larger as they became smaller, or appeared to be, that is. Their next destination would be right at the door of the Ice Sanctuary in the heart of the Crystal City of the Dawn.
