    The news startled the world of the Breach, no doubt, shaking the very foundation and causing a loud hurrah. Ninetails had sent word that the demons in the city would be her eyes and ears, but Ninetails knew one other needed to know of the news. Standing before an imp, he was sent to the outskirts of the icelands, where it sent out a beast, made of ice and snow, to wander around and look for the Demon Prince. The Ice Beast drudged through the snow with ease, finding little problem with the ice that filled the land that bothered many of Ninetails' previous scouts. It moved gracefully, almost like a deer moving through the forest. Quietly it moved, trying to sense the Demon Prince. Where could he be?

    "Demon Princcce... where are you...?" it called out in a quiet hissing sound, releasing an echo across the landscape for miles. "The Demon Lord wisssssshesssss to ssssssssspeak to you..." with each step, it moved closer and closer to its destination. It just didn't know it yet. "Prixlezzzzzzzzub... Prixlezzzzzzzub!!" It called more, fading into a silence every few minutes as it passed by a few animals that stared at it in curiosity. It would stare back, but do nothing, trying to find this "Prixlezub" the Demon Lord sent it to find. It had to share the news! It had to let him know! It wasn't the end of the month, but such news as this, it must be shared as swiftly as possible.

    Upon the howling winds and snow a call was carried, hissing and echoing across mountain and snowdrift alike. Over miles the sound drifted into the desolate reaches of the wastes to a certain demon's ears. Through the icy tundra his form lumbered, but not as a visage many would recognize. Thick white fur blew about in the wind, heavy paws thudding against hard packed ice as he snuffed the air with his long snout. Upon hearing the strange cry upon the wind, he halted in his tracking a name drawn out with a notable hiss, his coal black nose turning in the direction of the sound, listening to ear if it may be a trick of the wind or a true summons.

    Again the sound rang out through the icy north, and curiosity cycled about the disguised prince's mind. Who braved the icy chill of the icelands, if only to decide themselves to possess the gall to summon him. The demon's disguise darkened into a mass of writhing black, bones silently snapping as the bear's form contorted and began to expand into a beast far greater. The mass of writhing shadows took a thundering step forth, neck arched downwards as the process reached its end. Another resounding thud of hooves against ice, and the darkness dissipated like a cloud of millions of black serpents into the chilly air, soon replaced with curling clouds of steam. His disguise removed, the demon soundlessly moved his heavy feet into a gallop, the thunder of his approach heard far sooner than seen as he swiftly traversed the frozen wastes.

    To the icy creature, what arrived over the horizon would appear to be a mass of white cloud accompanied by thunder, but as it drew closer... Flames, crackling and vibrant glowed from amid the steamy plumes, a crimson hide of similar virile coloration standing out from the snowy reaches. The ground shook, ice cracked in protest and threatened to crack completely on the demon's approach, smoke pluming from his grill as he came to a halt before the ice beast, steam rolling about both of them as his after-wind caught up with them in a violent gust of heat.

    "I have heard your summons, construct." The prince rumbled, looking over the unfamiliar creature with mild intrigue. From the look of it, the creature was simple, devoid of life energy and bearing a strange seal upon its shoulders. Perhaps a servant, or another wayward newcomer that the prince had not been introduced to yet. However, from the simplicity in its tone, he quickly settled on the former. "Who is your master, and why do they call for me?" He questioned, although he could not help but wonder to himself if this was the only one that was roaming the wastes, or if there were more.

    Indeed, Prince, this was the only one of its kind. But as the demon grew closer, the ice beast held its ground, undeterred by the flames the Prince brought with him. As the Prince bellowed his words, the ice beast stood completely still and stared at the demon that stood before him. It asked for its master, and the being bowed slightly, "Masssster... Demon Lord Ninetailsssss...." it said before rising from the snowy ground to look upon the Prince once more. "My massssster bringssss a messsssssssage... there is grave newsssss around the Breach..." Taking a step back from the flaming beast, it began.

    "Thornsssss have grown from the groundsss of the foressssst and are ssssslowly coming towardssss the cccccccity.... the protectorssssss engaged a ssssstrange barrier to prevent otherssssss from leaving, or entering, the cccccity... Demon Lord Ninetailssss ssssusssspectsss that a group will go out to invessstigate the thornsssss... sssssshe is in waiting. I bring you thisssss newssssss becaussssse you have no other sssssource asssss far asss we know of. Sssssshe wanted to keep you informed, Demon Princcce...." When it was done with the story, it bowed once more. "What will you do sssssso that I may tell my Lord? Ssssshe is waiting..." standing tall and looking eyeless upon the Prince, it awaited an answer.

    Ah, so the demon lord herself had sent it? The prince's attention was soon piqued further as the construct elaborated on its task, apparently bearing important news. Strange, he had thought a report from her many eyes would not be due until later on, perhaps the end of the month. Regardless, if it was indeed a messenger of the Demon Lord, whatever it had to say was worth listening to.

    Prixlezub listened attentively to its hissing report, news of thorns emerging from the forest to encroach upon the city reaching his lofty ears. "She would be correct that a group will investigate, the populace of this land are not so willing to leave such strange matters be." The prince rumbled thoughtfully, his gaze briefly looking past the ice beast and towards the mountains. How long has this matter been occurring while he was away here, hunting? If the thorns are numerous enough to warrant investigation, it would not be surprising that the city will have taken defensive action against this threat. Although, the prince could not help but wonder if perhaps this was the work of someone more familiar than mysterious as the news was letting on.

    But a forest of thorns? If it truly was his work, it seemed more lively than what had been seen prior. However, whether or not the beast was indeed behind the thorns or not, it was a disturbance worth investigating. His gaze turned back to the icy construct, Ninetails' servant now wishing to know what the Prince intended to do. "I will investigate the thorns as well, post haste. Give your master my thanks for such swift information." He replied respectfully. With that he stepped around the construct, his gaze turned towards the horizon. "I must be on my way, Farewell, messenger."

    Smoke pluming from his grill and steam billowing about his clawed and hooved feet, the demon lunged forward into a swift gallop. Within moments the Prince was nothing more than a dot on the horizon, the steam that churned in his wake resembling an oncoming storm racing towards the southern mountains.

    It seemed the Prixlezub would go and investigate the thorns, as well. "Yessss, Demon Lord Ninetailssssss will be invessssssstigating it asssssss well. Sssssshe will ssssee you there, no doubt..." it retorted as Prixlezub mentioned he must get there quickly. It nodded its head and spoke once more, "fare well, Prixlezzzzzzub. Ninetailssssss will sssssee you sssssoon...." and there here went, running across the snow banks towards the thorn covered woods.

    The creature looked at him leave and once he was out of range of sight, it turned elsewhere and slid across the snow at a quick speed, something unimaginable, until it was at the border of the icelands once again where it was created. "The Princccccccce issss on hisssss way..." it hissed at the imp that stood there in waiting. The imp nodded and disappeared, while the snow beast looked around and returned to walk the snowy grounds. It had no other purpose at the moment other than to lurk in the icelands, but not against Prixlezub's wishes; it merely had no where else to go.

    It would linger until it was needed again.
