[ Thanagarian Ship, Storage Room: ]
???: Fine. Let me show you.
*Abruptly, a new presence enters the room*
*The sheer pressure from their very aura leaves everyone immobilized*
*Its massive power even crushes Shaern's flames out of existence*
*As she steps out from behind a huge stack of crates, her appearance becomes apparent: *
???: Yo. We having fun yet? *Cackle*
*Abruptly, a yelp can be heard from Crona*
*Hir clothes are slightly nicked from several blades that shot past*
*Similar blades go by so quickly that Osseron's armor is notched*
???: You guys are fun.

[ ???, Dark Cave: ]
*In the darkness, a human-sized pillar of black crystals rests - Bound in chains of red crystal*
*From the apparent passage leading in, a cloaked figure approaches*
*On the surface of the crystal, a face consisting of a grin and one eye - Black sclera, gold irises - Appears*
??? 2: Gheheheh. About time you showed up. Realized you can't handle Blakkun, Failure-Klak, or the Idiot Conqueror without me?
??? 1: Shut up already. I came to make sure you hadn't damaged the seal. You cause much more trouble than you've ever done to help me.
??? 2: Really? Sure that ain't some bullsh!t you made up? *Cackles wildly*
*The entire cave begins to shudder, and white steam jets from the crystal*
??? 1: *Rams the heel of palm against the crystal* Cease and desist.
??? 2: *Yowls like a hurt cat* You jerk!! Don't pull that with me!!
??? 1: There will come a time when I need you. But not when my friends can be hurt by you, Vez.
Vez?: *Grins, face becoming more clear* So. We gonna go rampage but good, soon? Like the old days? We say jump...?
??? 1: *Lowers his hood, grinning* ...And they ask "how high?", you got it. You need to chill for now. But you and me are gonna shake the dimensions to their core soon enough.
*As Zev and his Hollow counterpart laugh madly, the cave shudders even more violently*
*Their blended gray aura fills the chamber*
