    Busy with all kinds of important leaderly business, Belial had totally missed Siddhartha's moment of arrival. It wasn't like him, and he realized that-- but everything was starting to settle and Belial found time now to approach this tiny-yet-large creature that Glasshouse was speaking with. For a moment, he wondered if it was sentient or not. Then, noticing her sense of discontent, he was certain she was sentient-- the dumb ones were always happy.


    Belial, however, was in agreement with Siddhartha. He remembered the glory of the old Exiles castle, the mighty position at the head of an ever-growing army of deadly fighters. He had never been leader of that old clan, but he had gotten pretty close on several occasions. Things today were not the same, he understood that-- but the presence of an imposing castle instead of a lowly prison was definitely a plus for the Exiles of old. A prison symbolized defeat. They were not a defeated clan, not by any means.


    As if his presence beside Glasshouse didn't dwarf her, he almost had to laugh at how Glass was no officially the size of a mouse. "And I am Belial. What are you? And who are you?" He asked, gazing at the oversized field-mouse with a mixture of amusement and confusion upon his face.

    So, this was what Glasshouse was doing in her free time. He couldn't say he was particularly surprised, but he hid back an expression of jealous distaste behind his typical guise of apathy. Which, considering everything, was actually not typical when he was seen around Glass. He gazed between her, and Breakout, and Softvelvet, and the flower crown. Belial thought he was deserving of an actual crown-- but not even one made of flowers, either? He didn't get enough recognition around here. Opening his mouth momentarily, he wasn't entirely sure what to say. He wanted to make a very snarky comment, but thought that might upset Glass. With a huff, he raised his head slightly, absentmindedly pressing closer to his girlfriend, as if to lay claim. "It's a great look for you, Breakout." Was all he said, brow furrowing just a hair. With all of his hours toiling up in the prison, and not a single reward-- no, that was just nonsense. He was proud of Glass for her craftsmanship, even if the crown was not perched upon his own head.

    Belial watched as more and more Exilers showed up. Good, he wanted to make sure many would be here for his meetings. He was not a particularly prideful leader, but he did want to make sure his voice was heard. "Those are good ideas. Thank you, Breakout." He would comment. He admired the other's willingness to help out around the clan. Gazing toward Damion, Belial nodded. Strategy was always something to be honed in on. "There is no such thing as too much strategy. Thank you too, Damion." Now that his thank-yous were finished, it was time to address larger concerns.


    "Next. We have a couple of new members around the Exiles. A warm welcome to Petra, Rhaegar, and Ruma." These were the names he had heard around the clan, even though he had not been present when they had shown up. Either way, it was nice to be able to welcome some new faces. "Lockdown and Adrian are demoted. Don't worry, you can earn your ranks back in time..." That was the typical consolation Bel gave people. But he wasn't sure if it helped much at all. Whatever. "I would like Glasshouse to step up as Vandal, and I am giving a warning to Yptix." He would comment, gaze shifting to his girlfriend, giving an expression that looked something like 'way to go babe'. It felt strange to be promoting her, he admitted, but she had been contributing much to the clan just like the others. It was only fair. "I would like someone to pick up weekly tasks this week, if possible. Otherwise, meeting is adjourned." Soon he had to think about filling those spots that had been freed up. Hm. He knew of some possible rising stars, but he would hold off for a week to weed out the real contenders from the rest.

    It had been a while since himself and Glass had had some serious private time. Of course, he saw her at night, but typically he was awake much earlier than her and hardly slept a wink anyways. Sleeping, at this point, was too risky. Not only did he have to keep an eye on Glass, he also had to keep an eye on himself. Shadowclan was becoming more and more bold with their attacks, and so Belial was far from safe within his own room.


    Today, however, the day was slow. The soft pitter-patter of rain just above the roof of the prison grew somewhat louder as he climbed the steps to their room. He had woken up much too early to fog and dew on the canyon ground, with no signs of anybody else being awake. The leader had crept back inside, pelt slightly moist, just as the skies opened up and unleashed their heavy raindrops. He figured there wasn't much for him to do today anyways. Pushing himself through the doorway, Belial would move toward Glasshouse, whom was still motionless on the pile of pillows he called a bed. Most of those pillows, though, were rather rare. He himself had looted one or two from each and every clan in Agrelos. Everyone had such strange ways of crafting pillows...


    Curling his much larger frame slightly around her, Belial would lower his head against his paws and take in a fresh breath of rainy air that was gently wafting through their tiny windows. "Good morning, Glass. Did you sleep okay?" Was it still the morning? The sun had barely been up for an hour or two, but Belial didn't really care. It wasn't often he got to say good morning to her-- in fact, he felt a pang of guilt upon realizing that he hardly ever saw her out of bed and down the stairs to begin their days. He wondered if she still loved him quite so fiercely as before-- however, he was sure that he did, and so he was not worried. A busy leader had busy days, that was how things worked. Surprises like these, then, would hopefully serve as a sweet little something to repay her for her support.

    As far as meetings went, Belial hoped this one could be concise. However, there were a number of things to discuss, so that was not always possible. The leader strode up to his position at the front of the prison, which had been cleaned up nicely during the plague time, and was now a rather ornate little location. "Meeting time. Gather." The leader declared, lowering himself to a sitting position as he waited for the others to arrive. Once enough people started to gather around, he started.


    "First, and perhaps most importantly, our gravedigger Softvelvet was recently attacked by the Shadowclanner I mentioned last week, the deserter from the Exiles. It is clear that his intentions are militaristic and planned. Do not, under any circumstances, lighten up on Shadow Veil. We are still at war, people." He spoke these words with a level or strained seriousness that one rarely heard him use. Things were becoming too real. Softvelvet was a friend of his, so someone like him coming under threat now put Belial's own safety on the line. Of course, that was only if he lowered his guard, which he rarely did. When people in his position lowered their guard, they got killed, or worse.


    "At this time, our only ally remains the Dark Dynasty. I would like to expand our alliances-- I know I asked this a few weeks ago, but if anybody has alliances suggestions again, I will gladly present myself to any recommended clans." He spoke to the group. Alliances were going to be important once they grew closer to their goal of defeating Shadow Veil once and for all. If they could rally several strong allies together, the chances of dealing with a stalemate were extremely low. "On the subject, if anyone would like to hold a party for allies, that would be appreciated." Belial has all kinds of extra party supplies and liquors in his secret storage unit, so setting up for a party would be simple-- he just needed someone with the time to do it. Oh, and on the subject of parties... "We're still taking sign ups for the 'Secret Santa'. Check out the OOC board for that." What was an OOC board? Belial had no idea.


    "Promotions, demotions, welcomes, and other announcements are coming up next."

    Oh no, not children. The little rascals were nothing but trouble, as far as Belial was concerned-- especially around the Exiles. Picture a gang of evildoers attempting to withhold their aggression toward energetic children running around the clan. It was a recipe for disaster, as far as Belial was concerned. Eyeing the small child as he approached, the leader stepped up a few feet behind Glasshouse. It was clear that they were not here for any particular reason. That made them little more than a nuisance in Belial's eyes, and he had half a mind to turn around and wander away. But, that would not be very leaderly of him, especially in front of the rest of his clan. So he stayed put. "Do you have a home we can bring you back to or something? Parents? Guardians?" He questioned with a sigh, hoping the answer was a very excited 'yes'. He hoped to deal with this quickly so that he could attend to the other pressing matters around the clan. He wasn't sure who he'd put in charge of the kid if they had to stay. Part of him said Glasshouse, but he also thought Roman could take care of them as well. Hm.

    It was not often somebody got hurt inside Exiles territory-- well, an Exiler, anyways. It always amazed the leader that enemies were able to escape his superior senses, but he supposed one or two were destined to evade him. This, however, made Belial extremely angry, especially when he caught a whiff of Shadowclan odor. Brow furrowing deeply and teeth barring, the leader walked toward Roman and Soft with haste. He carried on his back a small pouch with some of his own private healing supplies. It wasn't much, but it was better than improvising. He gazed at Roman, giving him a nod and dropping the satchel before him. Roman was trustworthy to handle the healing, though both him and Blindlove seemed to work well together, too. He then turned to Softvelvet. "You need to stay with us, Softvelvet. We need you. Tell Roman everything that could be useful." He gazed at the male's battered body, anger growing more intense by the moment. So, Shadowclan thought it smart to try and kill not just a high-ranking Exiler, but the leader of the Dynasty as well? "Fucking Shadowclan. I'll make them pay for this. I'll make them pay for everything." The scars on his pelt, though old, still reminded him of his own vengeance against the clan. The proper price has never been paid.

    Though not completely surprised that Sek had a backup plan, he was taken aback somewhat when he was yanked down to the ground along with his opponent. Just as she had hoped, the leader collided hard against the ground, tiny stones and pebbled cutting slightly into his side. Each little cut left tiny droplets of blood on his pelt, but he didn't notice as he planned is retaliation. As her paw came down toward his head, Belial rolled slightly out of the way as he attempted to launch his full force against her leg from his prone position. That wouldn't be enough to knock her down, though, so the leader would then try to pounce onto her back for a brief moment, his paws hopefully pushing down on her as he would jump off and land on the opposite side. Whether or not his attacks connected, Belial would hope to find himself in a decent position, either out of harm's way or ready for the finishing blow. Considering he had just finished lacerating some of her pelt earlier, Belial hoped he could finish this fight with little serious damage to either of them. However, he imagined Sek was not someone to give up after a few bruises.

    Although having seen many quarrels within the Exiles, and so he typically he tried not to let it affect his relationships with anybody. Of course, there were also times when he had played an active role in such quarrels, like the all-out revolution he chose to lead against Bill for his... various crimes. The leader was not interested in reminiscing about such a time, and instead turned his attention toward Roman as he approached. Belial had chosen him as deputy for a reason-- although Belial typically relied on his own judgment, he enjoyed surrounding himself with others whose judgment he could trust as well. Roman was one of these people. "I'm well. Not the best morning, but I guess I'll take it." He chuckled, motioning to the light layer of mist that seemed to waft through the canyon every couple of days. But, nevertheless, he was lucky to be here, alive and well. "Are you in good health yourself, Roman?"

    Though not particularly social himself, Belial found it helpful to chat with those he rarely saw, for one reason or another. It was helpful, though, so that he could build a tighter community within the clan. Blake was somebody he has seen here and there, but he knew very little about her compared to some of the others members. He supposed there were those who wished to do their own thing-- that was the reason some people joined the Exiles to begin with, he was sure. The leader spotted Blake in no spot in particular, and chose to lend her a few words. "Hello Blake. How are things?" He wondered how much or how little she knew about the inner workings of the clan these days. Perhaps, though, she was listening in quietly, just like he would have been if he chose to keep to himself often.

    "Thank you Roman. Feel free." The leader would reply to Roman with a nod. Whoops, his mind had wandered-- now that some time had past, perhaps he'd have Roman continue the tasks into next week as well. That seemed fair enough. To Sebastion's comment, Belial felt an air of... pride? No, not exactly. Comfort, perhaps. Whatever it was, it was triggered by the great loyalty his clan was showing lately. It made up for those like Bravo who chose to abandon their cause and side with the enemy. Such "Excellent. See me after the meeting and we shall travel to the branding cave." Yes, the leader had a specific cave set up now for branding ceremonies. This was because those with fire capabilities were disappearing, so Belial found it easier to just maintain a constant fire in that cave himself.

    Belial would be unable to come up with a more interesting delegation of Exilers to meet this joiner, even if he had been paid to do so. Indeed, the Exiles did house semi-feral creatures like Sek, but that was of no object to the leader. As far as he was concerned, she knew what she was doing, most of the time. He was rather unsure of her past, but he presumed it had been rich and impactful. Not everybody could say that about their lives, though the Exiles seemed to house a disproportionately greater number of those types. And, for that, Belial was glad. Striding up beside Glasshouse, the leader had indeed spotted this male from his original location perched on top of the prison. "Welcome Ironkiss. I am your leader, Belial. I trust you will be able to acquaint yourself comfortably with my members." He spoke in no particular way-- perhaps bored would be the greatest way to describe his style of speech, but even that was a bit too interesting to fully capture his apathetic way of speaking.

    And just like that, another week was under their belts. Belial was rather satisfied with their current direction, their current goals-- however, he did understand that things changed, and perhaps the direction of their efforts would soon shift. But, he didn't think that was likely. "Meeting time. Gather, all." What was important to talk about this week? Not a whole lot, but some general announcements.


    "First, welcomes to Sebastion and Guillotine. I trust you will turn out to be helpful and useful members of the Exiles. If either of you would like to be branded to display your loyalty, now would be an excellent time." He mentioned the branding again-- although not necessary, he still hoped to be getting enough people to continue with the tradition, if only to show their enemies how devoted their members were. Also, it enabled them to pick out deserters, like the one mongrel that had fled to Shadowclan. Speaking of which, he should bring that up. What was the guy's name again? "Bravo has deserted the Exiles in favour of Shadowclan. If he is spotted, drag his ass back here for questioning." Were they giving him food? Were they giving him alcohol or some other form of currency? Belial had to know if this was a strategy brought upon them by Shadowclan, or if it was just one dumbass deserter.


    What else was going on? Hm. "We're having a, uhhh... 'Secret Santa' party. I don't really know what it means but we all get a random name and have to get that person a gift. Something people do during the winter, I don't know." He had put Glass in charge of brainstorming, and that had been what she came up with. It was a good idea in principle, he supposed. But he thought all her ideas were good ideas. "Promotions and demotions. I'm giving out warnings to Adrian, Lockdown, and Blindlove. Damion is promoted to Vandal. Softvelvet, you're being promoted to Gravedigger." That would suffice for now. It was about time serious promotions were handed out, as well as some warnings. He hoped those who he hadn't seen lately were fairing well. "If anyone would like to take on this week's weekly tasks, feel free to volunteer."

    Belial had assumed Sek would hesitate not in the slightest as he accepted her challenge, so Belial had approached already on his toes. Though perhaps not the swiftest, the leader felt as though he was a well-rounded fighter-- a natural tactician, so to speak. Knocked a bit off balance by her initial attack, Belial kept lower to the ground while he dodged her blow to the face. He was now, perhaps, not so much off balance but utilizing a new balance, a lower one, in which he would spring back up with his large paws aiming for her flank, attempting to push hard and knock her off of her feet. He would then barrel forward, trying to slam into her chest and potentially knock the wind out of her. He expected Sek to be angry and relentless, but he knew that she was not stupid. He was sure she was already analyzing him just as much so that she could learn how to defeat him. Shock combat seemed to be her primary method of attack, which Belial was already busy picking out the potential flaws with. However, he did understand that losing this spar was a possibility, as embarrassing as it might be.

    Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Belial was often confused with whom he should be trying to please these days. It seemed that there were many headspaces within the Exiles these days, and none were fully aligned with what the leader was trying to do. Often times he assumed he should simply try to please himself and shape the clan in his own image, but he couldn't help but feel as though he was leaving something crucial out. Thoughts like these raced through his head as he moved through the prison, wandering up and down its corridors. He wondered if he would ever be satisfied with the condition of the Exiles. The answer was almost a definite no-- his convictions were much too nebulous for there to ever be an end goal.

    Perhaps part of him wanted to spare the rest of his clan from having to fight Sek, or perhaps he was feeling bold and genuinely invested in showing her that he was at the top of the food chain for a reason-- but, either way, he was going to take up this opportunity to fight. He knew little about her, even less than some much newer folks. Her secretive nature and typical wordlessness made sure of that. He saw how she fought on the battlefield and was rather impressed, so naturally the leader was curious to see how she conducted herself during a spar. "We'll see what you're made of then, Sek. I'll gladly spar against you." Had he been taking up all the sparring opportunities lately? Maybe, but whatever. If he had his way everyone would be sparring all the time so that they could train and grow strong in order to defeat their enemies. But he also knew that it would weaken the mind to be stuck in an endless loop of fighting. Perhaps this was a huge mistake-- after all, he had only recently punished Sek for her stealing away of a child, and perhaps he was on her shit-list so to speak. Maybe she would fight him for more than just to win the spar. Belial stepped up to face her once again, a bit embarrassed that she had gotten him to the ground before. This time, though, she might not be so lucky.
