Ambrosia watched her sons leave with the rest of the soldiers. Zeke and Iram met up at the head of the group heading into the portal. She watched with a pallor of sadness filling her. She paused as she heard Zorn join her, "My Queen, some matters need attending the other Clans have gathered, and it is time to discuss the ascentions." He informed. Nodding Ambrosia turned and allowed her horns to grow from her head. She moved with him at her side to the place she knew the Demon Council was held. As she entered she saw the round table seating Zavist, Cupiditas, Krenari, Lilith, Lakmi, and Jezebeth. Jezebeth had been chosen to lead the Sloth House after Desidiae was killed. But that was relative now. She sat and looked over to where one of Iram's Wrath Demons sat in his place.
"So the topic today is ascention of the new Clan Leaders." Ambrosia said as she sat on her throne.
"My reign is limited, I abused my seat by killing my mistress and the Lust Council has allowed me to rule this long so that I could train some one to take my place." Lilith spoke evenly. "I am proposing Prince Lucas to take the right of ascention."
"My Lord Iram has also decided his daughter Jin should be a Wrath candidate." The Wrath Demon spoke. The council nodded and began to deliberate on the time the tests could be administered.
"The tests will be administered on the sixth night after their eighteenth birthday." Ambrosia decided, the council all wrote the date down, unwilling to challange her. Sometimes it was good to be queen. "Also Prince Asher will be ascending to the right of heir after the Clan Heads are chosen."
"And their seconds?" Lakmi asked. For a gluttony demon he was very battle oriented, as one of her own clients he thrived on the pleasure he recieved from being beaten. Ambrosia was a hard mistress and she refused to allow him much freedom, but that only occured when she needed to feed and she never needed to feed often. She looked at him and glared, seeing the spark of lust in his eyes she looked to Lilith.
"Their seconds will be decided on the day of the right." She spoke, as she stood she dismissed the council."We will meet again in a few weeks to discuss the reports of each Districts status."
Zeke sighed as he emerged from the portal, the other demons holding post at the crater were relieved upon seeing him. "My lord, there is not much change, since the last visit." One demon reported. "Only the smoke has begun to double."
Zeke pressed forward to see the crater for himself, sure enough the blackened circle had begun to smoke more, he felt its evil press on him liek a vise. He hated it, he hated not knowing what it was. He felt deep in his soul that it was a threat, but how could he defeat a peice of blackened rock? "What do you suggest?" Iram asked.
"We will survey the area, see if any of the animals or surrounding Hell Plant life has been damaged by the crater. Watch it for ourselves as few days then we leave again." Zeke infomed. Iram nodded and left to dispense orders to set up camp. He told the demons that had been on duty to head back and take a few days to relax in the kingdom. Sitting in the chair that surveyed the whole crater he examined it, what was it exactly? What had acused this? He had no answers and that bothered him.
