Diablo: Redemption chapter 6
Chapter 6
The group, along with several soldiers made their way through the Temple. Aedan was looking around, cautiously looking for possible ambushes by demons, his sword ready.
Moreina, Varric and Leliana, walked together, their bows, and crossbow out. Varric’s eyes widened, as they saw what looked to Moreina as red gem stones.
“Seeker. That’s Red Lyrium.” Varric called out, to Cassandra.
Cassandra frowned deeply. “I see it Varric.”
“But what is it doing here?” The Dwarf asked, looking more concerned than Moreina had yet seen him.
“The magic from the breach must have drawn it to the surface.” Solas suggested.
Varric spat to the side. “It’s evil, don’t touch it.”
Moreina looked at Varric, she could tell he spoke from experience, she notched an arrow a habit whenever she found anything considered evil, she found demons nearby.
Leliana seeing how tense Moreina was put a hand on her shoulder. Moreina look

Moreina moved to stand of Aedan, she didn’t know what compelled her, but she wrapped her slender yet well toned arms around the warrior.
“Be Careful, Aedan.” She said softly.
“I will, you be careful as well.” He said, looking to Moreina, then looking to the others. “All of you.”
“This is folly. Whatever happens Seeker. The blood will be on your hands.” Roderick said.
“Then pray we succeed Chancellor.” Cassandra said as the group walked off, leaving Roderick alone. The man turning and leaning on the small table.
Chapter 5
The six split into groups of three, as Aedan, Leliana, and Solas went towards the Temple proper, a more direct route, Cassandra, Moreina and Varric went up the mountain pass.
Cassandra was not entirely pleased that she had to take the indirect route, but knew Aedan had a point, Moreina and Varric would need a warrior to defend them. And as helpful as Moreina had been, Cassandra was still hesitant to trus

Running up beside her, Aedan questioned. “Who’s fighting?”
“You’ll see soon, we must help them.” Cassandra said.
Aedan ran forward with Cassandra following, a head of them Aedan saw one of the rifts Cassandra had spoke of, it was pulsing green with looked like green gems erupting from it, like a beating heart.
Ahead of him, Aedan saw soldiers fighting, as well as a woman with red leather armor, that showed off her legs, a beardless dwarf with a crossbow, and a bald elf, a mage with a staff. With no hesitation, Aedan drew his sword and joined them in combat, with Cassandra bringing up the rear

Aedan’s sword struck true against a terror demon, the tall spindly creature, towered over them, striking with long knife like claws.
Aedan noticed an arrow from the red clad woman, striking one of the sloth demons. He could admire that kind of skill with a bow.

Chapter 3
When the Scion of House Trevelyan woke, he did not expect the greeting he got, as soon as his eyes opened and the elf had deemed him well, the short haired beautiful woman had ordered him detained, and taken to the keep.
He had not expected to be chained kneeling on the floor like a criminal, his mind raced on what law he might have broken, or what he had done to earn such treatment, yet his mind did gave him little more than a headache when he tried to remember.
All that he could was that so many had died, the reason for it beyond him, and this green glow on his hand, was beyond anything he had ever experienced as a member of the Templar order.
So chained as he was awaiting his fate, with no idea of what had happened, he had little choice be to wait, and pray.

“Exactly.” Solas said, then turning to Moreina. “Child, we are fighting demons of our own, who are invading our world. If you could help us, perhaps it will help you atone for your past.”
Moreina eyes moist looked up at the two. ‘I could atone for the deaths I caused….was this what they meant?’ she thought to herself remembering the words of the archangels. She lowered her eyes, then she nodded to herself.
Looking up her eyes sharp. “How can I help?”

As soon as Moreina was given the go ahead to leave the cabin, she found herself wandering the village.
Haven was a small village nestled in the Frostback mountains, she learned that the mountains where the homes of the Dwarves of Orzammar.
Heading to the armorer, who made different types of armor, she requisitioned a set of leather armor, that was similar in design to her old rogue armor, blood red leather, that was cut to show her thighs, and

Diablo: Redemption Chapter 1
This is a non-profit work of Fanfiction. Diablo is owned by Blizzard Entertainment, Dragon Age is owned by BioWare.
A.N: I am a huge Diablo fan, have been since I first played Diablo 1, and my favorite character has always been the Rogue. (Course i also like the Assassin in Diablo 2, and the Demon Hunter in Diablo 3.) The thought behind this fanfic is what if Blood Raven who as everyone should know is the Rogue from Diablo 1 that was corrupted by the demons due to what she experienced in the catacombs beneath Tristram, had been given a second chance after her death at the hands of the heroes in Diablo 2. What if Fate, decided that the story of Blood Raven was not yet over, that the woman known as Moreina was still in Blood Raven, and because of her regret over what she had become in the end realizing that, she was given a second life.
This is my take on that scenario. As such, I have decided to have this be a crossover with Dragon Age, another favorite game of mine. I believe the two w

Unknown to Moreina and the people of Haven, who were celebrating their brief victory, the Breach gave a slight flash, and two objects fell from it, close together, it looked as though two figures held each other, falling from the breach, and landing in the country known as Orlais.

The impact scattered wildlife, and within the crater lay two people, a large man with dark skin, wearing gold armor, with a sword strapped to his back, and in his arms, a woman with silver and blue armor, long blonde hair, falling past her shoulders, and a huge mace and shield on her back.

The two lay there silently in the wilderness.

Chapter 7: Trouble in the Hinterlands.




Moreina stood before the women, and girls who were willing to do what was necessary for the defense of Haven and their families. The youngest of the girls was a fourteen year old elven girl, which just happens to be the age Moreina was when she was taken in by the Sisters of the Sightless Eye.

“You are here, because you are willing to fight, against whatever threatens your home, and families.” Moreina said, her voice coming out strong, confident.

The women and girls looked nervous, but there was a fire in their eyes, that told of the desire to protect all they held dear.

“You are all probably thinking. ‘How can we fight? We aren’t as strong as the men.’ Wrong! You can be every bit as strong as the men, maybe not physically, but mentally, and in spirit.” As she continued she saw them looking a little more confident.

“To fight, you will need only two weapons. Your brains, and this.” As she said that she lifted her bow showing it to them, the elegantly carved weapon was clearly crafted by a master fletcher.

Her gaze passed over them, each of them eyeing her bow, listening to her every word.

“For now, you don’t have your own bow, but the Inquisition has generously given bows to you to train with, until you are able to make your own.” Moreina said slipping her bow back behind her back.

Under Moreina’s instruction the women and young girls who could handle a bow to start learning began training, standing in front of targets, drawing back their bows and shooting, Moreina had to correct a few stances however.

The elven girl who Moreina learned was named Lily proved her race’s natural archery ability, impressing Moreina. As the last of the women went to their homes bows in hand, Moreina approached Lily with a smile.

“You are quite skilled with a bow young one, much like I was.” Moreina said.

“Oh thank you Serah.” The elven girl blushed shyly, as she looked at her feet.

Moreina gently lifted the girl’s chin with her finger. “No, don’t lower your head, be proud, Lily.”

Lily gave a small smile, and Moreina grinned in return. “That’s it. Lily, I want to take you as my apprentice, you have a skill with a bow that could one day rival mine.”

Lily blushed, fiddling with her bow. “T-that’s because I’m an elf, I think.”

“Well whatever the reason for it, you could be one of the greatest archers, and I would be honored to help you on that path.” The Rogue said with a warm smile.

“Where do you think we are Tyrael?” Johanna asked as she tended the fire they sat near.

“I do not know, Crusader. But I felt Diablo’s foul presence as we arrived.” The former Archangel of Justice said grimly.

“Yes, I did as well. Also something more. I think it has to do with that green vortex we fell from.” Johanna said her gaze rising to the green scar in the sky.

Tyrael frowned, it was true he didn’t feel Diablo’s foul presence from the scar, but he could feel the Prime Evil’s presence all the same. Terror, hatred, destruction, lies, sin, anguish, and pain filled the air, like a miasma.

“I think we should split up, find out what we can about this world, and if anyone has noticed a demon of Diablo’s like.” Johanna suggested.

Tyrael frowned not liking the idea of splitting up from Johanna but knew the Crusader was right.

“Very well, let’s see what we can learn of this world.” Tyrael said.

As he began to walk away he turned to look at her. “Please be careful, Johanna.”

Briefly surprised and touched by the former Archangel’s concern, and use of her name, she gave a smile.

“You too, see you as soon as possible.” She said.

The two briefly going their separate ways.

During the week Moreina trained the women in archery, pushing Lily even harder than the others, knowing the young elf would possibly rival her as an archer, and wanted to see the girl grow into a skilled marksman.


Moreina smirked proudly as she watched the women she had trained in the art of marksmanship grow into their skill, especially Lily who could snap out a shot faster than when she started.

She turned at the sound of footsteps and nodded at seeing Leliana, the Spy Master returned the nod.

“You've been training them very well.” Leliana said, complimenting Moreina.

The rogue smiled, as she turned back to her trainees.

“They are all talented, especially Lily.” Moreina said, her voice soft.

Leliana nodded looking at Lily who was training diligently, as though she had something to prove, and wanted to make her mentor proud.

“I did notice you were pushing her harder than the others.” She commented, glancing at Moreina.

Moreina nodded, clasping her hands behind her back in a traditional parade rest, a wistful smile forming.

“She reminds me of myself, when I was younger….well younger than I am now.” Moreina said, since she was still rather young.

Leliana nodded, and looked once more at the women who were training to be archers, rogues Moreina had called them.

“We’ll be making an excursion into the Hinterlands soon,  Aedan will most likely want you to go with him.” The former Bard said giving Moreina a half smirk.

“A good team should always have a archer...or two.” Moreina said without missing a beat.

Leliana’s smirk grew slightly, the spymaster had heard from Aedan his opinion of the Rogue Archer, and that romantic Orlesian side of her wanted to play matchmaker, though Moreina did have a lot of baggage on her shoulders, she felt that the Rogue needed some happiness.

Moreina waved to her trainees and drew their attention, the twenty women, plus Lily turned towards her watching her expectantly.

“You have all had a great start, and I know, that you will be great rogues in the future….You are the first of the new Rogue Sisterhood on Thedas, in alliance with the Inquisition. You will represent women across Thedas, no matter what race, Thedas is our world, and we shall fight for it.” Moreina told them.

The women, human and elf stood straighter, and Lily smiled up at her mentor, Moreina saw this and smiled.

“Take time to train yourselves and develop your own styles of archery, when I return from the Hinterlands with the Herald, I will instruct you on crafting your own bows and arrows.” Moreina told them.

As the Rogue Trainees went their separate ways, except for Lily who made her way towards Moreina, the Rogue Captain turned to Leliana.

“I will join Aiden and the others in the Hinterlands, but I want Lily to join me, she could use some field experience, and perhaps an extra bow will help defend the people.” Moreina said, her tone that of an officer.

Leliana studied Moreina’s expression, and nodded. “That’ll be fine, there will be more than enough for her to help out with, if my agents in the Hinterlands are right.”

Moreina nodded and looked to Lily, the petite elf standing straighter. “Lily, pack some provisions, and get yourself some arrows, tell them I sent you, then meet me and the others at the gates.”

Lily snapped into a salute as Moreina had taught her, and answered crisply. “Yes, Captain Moreina.”

Moreina gave her protege a warm smile, and returned the salute. Watching the girl run off to do as she had been told, reminded the Rogue Captain of herself, as a novice, after she joined the Sisterhood.

“I’ll get my new gear ready, and meet Aiden and the others at the gate, let him know, please.” Moreina said, before turning and walking towards her small house.

Leliana watched the Rogue Captain, for a moment remembering her own lover, who was similar in personality to Moreina and went to inform Aiden, of what the Rogue had said.

Moreina walked into her house, it was a small modest place, with a single bed, and a small cooking pot, with a chest to store her gear, inside was a set of leather armor she had commissioned from the Blacksmith Harritt.

The outfit consisted of a leather vest that wrapped around tight around her torso, accenting her somewhat large bosom, with straps crossing in an X between her breasts, and around her shoulders, her midriff was bare, showing her well toned stomach.

Her bottom half was covered in a pair of leather leggings, with one pant leg removed to show off her shapely thigh, with three straps wrapped around that thigh, holding a small sheath that carried her dagger.

Hanging over her shoulder and dangling at her bottom, was a quiver, which held her arrows, with her bow ‘Light’s Redemption’ which was a testament, to her second chance. Slinging her bow across her shoulders, she slipped on her knee high, heeled boots, she stepped out the door.

XCX


Aiden, Cassandra, Solas, and Varric stood waiting along with the young elf that claimed that Captain Moreina had instructed her to meet them at the gate. Cassandra was not pleased by this, and upon seeing Moreina approach walked up to her.

“Moreina I hardly think-” Cassandra started before Moreina raised her hand, halting her protest.

“Cassandra, I understand your concern, but I believe some field experience, will do Lily some good, and I've seen how some humans treat elves in this world. I thought this will allow everyone to see an elf helping to bring order, and not to constantly see them in a negative light.” Moreina explained patiently.

Cassandra frowned deeply and was about to speak when Aiden placed a hand on her shoulder.

“She's right, Lily can help, besides, I can tell she's already quite attached to Moreina.” The warrior pointed out.

The seeker huffed, and started walking off, Aiden shook his head and followed, along with Varric.

Moreina patted Lily on the shoulder, and gave her an encouraging smile.

“Ready to go?”

“Yes Captain!” Lily said, with a salute.


XCX


The trip to the Hinterlands was supposed to be uneventful, according to Leliana. However the journey turned out to be far from uneventful.

The group stared in horror at what they were seeing, three people, a family were hanging from a tree, disemboweled with their innards hanging out, and pentagrams carved into their skin, a Mother, Father, and daughter hung limp.

Moreina drew her bow and looked around with sharp eyes, while the Thedasians looked horrified.

“Maker’s mercy, what did this?” Aedan asked his voice shaken.

Moreina saw them in her mind’s eye the demons Fallen by the looks of the remains tearing into the humans who lain strewn around the farmstead.

“Great Eye protect us….” The rogue captain muttered.

Aedan and the others looked at her seeing the haunting dread in her brown eyes.

“Moreina….what did this?” Aedan asked her.

Moreina looked at them her lips trembling as she uttered a single word, a word that caused them such fear they felt their hearts nearly stop.

“Diablo….”


XCX


The group made camp, setting up tents and watch, they sat around a fire, as they watched Moreina, she stared at the flickering flames with haunted eyes, Varric had seen such eyes before, as had Cassandra, and Aedan, Lily was the only one who was young enough to have not seen such. Yet the young elven girl was terrified, she had retched in the bushes after having seen the hung corpses.
Moreina took a deep breath to collect herself, then she looked at those sitting across from her, her arm gently wrapping around Lily’s shoulder.

“As most of you know, I'm not from this world. The world I'm from is called Sanctuary. My world was caught in the middle of a war between the forces of Heaven and Hell, with Sanctuary as the battleground. It was a war that makes your war between Mages and Templars seem like a minor skirmish.

Demons plagued my world, using mortals as pawns in their games, the worst of these demons are the Lords of Hell, seven of the most powerful demons in Hell. The three Prime Evils, Diablo the Lord of Terror Mephisto the Lord of Hatred, and Baal the Lord of Destruction, and the four lesser evils Belial the Lord of Lies, Azmodan the Lord of Sin, Andariel the Maiden of Torment, and Duriel the Lord of Pain.

During the early eras of Sanctuary, the Lesser Evils banished the Prime Evils from Hell to Sanctuary. It began an age of darkness. The prime evils were eventually captured and sealed away by a group of mages known as the Horadrim. Diablo was sealed inside a Soulstone and hidden beneath the small town of Tristram.

Tristram was plagued with demons, as Diablo’s influence grew, in response, my order The Sisterhood of the Sightless Eye sent me to investigate and possibly help the people of Tristram. There I met a mage of the Vizjerei Clan Jazreth and Prince Aiden of Westmarch.”

Moreina noticed Aedan react to the similar sounding name. She took a moment to take a drink from her waterskin seeing that she had everyone's attention even Varric who looked like he was salivating at the thought of such a good story.

“We delved into the catacombs beneath Tristram and fought our way down through the labyrinth fighting demons and the undead even fighting the cursed remains of Aiden’s father King Leoric who became known as the Skeleton King.

We eventually reached Diablo who had possessed Aiden’s brother Albrecht we defeated Diablo at the cost of Albrecht’s life, but the price we would pay was far worse. Aiden took the Soulstone and jabbed it into his own forehead to seal the demon within himself. Aiden Jazreth, and myself returned to our homes, but the nightmares we endured changed us.”

“How did you change?” Aedan asked watching Moreina with worry in his tone.

Moreina took a breath as she prepared to tell them they could easily see the regret in her eyes, and her words as she spoke reflected that.

“I returned to the Monastery that served as the home for the Sisterhood, and was tormented by nightmares, one night I took a walk to clear my head and came across a woman she was beautiful with red hair she spoke to me, her words were charming she lured me to a cave and I was ambushed by demons.

She revealed herself as Andariel, the Maiden of Anguish and she had her demons torture and rape me, until I was screaming for mercy, once she broke me she had one of her demons possess me, I became a passenger in my own flesh watching as the demon inside me took control, and forced me to betray the sisters I loved, I became known as Bloodraven, I was finally freed when I died, killed by the spear of an Amazon.”

Tears ran down Moreina’s checks as she finished telling her story, her sobs came unbidden. She felt a strong pair of arms wrap around her shoulders and looking she saw Aedan holding her she buried her face into his chest and wept.

The others sat quietly contemplating Moreina’s story even Varric who had seen and heard much tragedy as a storyteller couldn't even begin to match the story of the Otherworlder who had fallen into their world.

Lily, young and curious had to ask. “If you died, how are you here now?”

Moreina gave a sad smile, as she looked to her elven protege, the young girl’s eyes shimmered with unshed tears that came upon hearing Moreina’s painful story, and the Rogue Captain could see the hope in her eyes for something of a happy ending.

“I was brought before the Angiris Council within the High Heavens where my soul was judged, I was given a second chance after Tyrael the Archangel of Justice saw the injustice that had befell me.” Moreina said.

Cassandra frowned she had only gotten the abridged version of Moreina's story before, the rogue hadn't revealed the more painful parts of her past, though looking back on what they had witnessed the demons and their victims it was obvious to the Seeker that Moreina was preparing them for the worst.

Moreina stood up grabbing her bow, she looked at her companions. “I shall find us some food.”

“Mind if I go with you?” Varric asked, standing up.

Moreina looked at Varric, seeing not distrust in his eyes, but genuine concern, the dwarf she could tell would be one of her closest friends. He was someone who understood tragedy, maybe not to the extent of what Moreina had experienced but he had seen it. She gave a small smile, and nodded.

“Two bows are better than one.” She said, then she looked at Lily. “Make that three bows, hunting will be good training for a young archer.”

Lily smiled, and stood up taking up her own bow. With Moreina leading the way, the three archers went searching for fresh game.

As the three left, Cassandra looked at Aedan. “That explains why she looks at you oddly, you share the same name as her companion.”

Aedan nodded, his gaze distant, as he watched where Moreina had walked off. “Yeah, what were facing, seems mild in comparison to what she faced, this Diablo...Maker if we had to face such an evil…”

Solas frowned as he looked to the two, his eyes haunted by the story, even during his time as the Dread Wolf Fen’harel, he had never heard of such an evil. “We need to be wary, if what Moreina said is true, then this Diablo has already come to this world.”

Cassandra shook her head. “Maker what a mess...first The Breach, now a powerful Demon Lord?”

“This changes everything, we will need both the Mages ,and the Templars, we can’t afford to be picky.” Aedan said, turning his gaze to the fire.

XCX


Moreina leading the way crept silently, Lily behind her working hard on being just as quiet, with Varric  taking up the rear. With bows in hand, they searched for something edible. Her eyes sharp from years of training as an archer Moreina had adapted her eyes to seeing at night.

The night was quiet eerily so, not even crickets making a sound, it was the three archers realized unnerving.

“Hey! What’s that?” Lily spoke quietly, pointing to a shape twenty feet off.

Without waiting for Moreina or Varric, Lily approached. The shape turned out to be a young elven child, female, with brown hair, Lily’s eyes widened as she realized the child had been half eaten, her legs were gone, and her dead gaze stared horrified.

Lily opened her mouth to scream, but Moreina’s soft hand covered her mouth, turning the young elf away from the scene, and holding her against her breast. Varric swallowed the bile that rose in his throat.

“Andraste’s tits” Varric said, as he turned away from the grisly scene.

“We need to get out of here, quickly.” Moreina said, her voice hoarse.

Moreina gently led Lily away from the scene, Lily was sobbing, and shivering uncontrollably.  The three returned to the camp silently, save for Lily’s sobs. Varric looked troubled, Moreina’s eyes were haunted, frowning they reached the camp, where Cassandra, Solas and Aedan waited.

Cassandra stood up, and opened her mouth to ask, but seeing the state of Lily, looked to Moreina. “We need to leave now, this forest is not safe.”

Aedan, Cassandra and Solas looked at Moreina, seeing the look in the Rogue Captain’s expression, seeing Lily sobbing, and Varric much to Cassandra’s surprise looking as troubled as he did.

“Right, let’s go.” Aedan said, as he stood up, and worked to gather his gear.

The others quickly followed suit, except for Moreina and Lily, Moreina already had her gear on her, and Lily was clinging to Moreina, her eyes terrified by what she had seen.

Breaking camp, the group continued carefully on their way, going in formation, with Aedan and Cassandra taking up the lead, swords at the ready, Lily coming up next, holding her bow like a lifeline, and Moreina and Varric  taking up the rear, Raven’s Wing, and Bianca at the ready.

A.N: Ending the chapter here. I’m making this a two-part chapter, the next chapter will conclude the group's journey to The Cross-Roads, and we will see more evidence of Diablo’s presence on Thedas.

A few things as well, first off somethings will be changed to make everything come together, such as both the Templars, and the Mages siding with the Inquisition. Secondly is I’m still deciding on where I want Johanna and Tyrael to join the Inquisition, and so far I’m looking at soon for Johanna, and a bit later for Tyrael. So look forward to that.

Thanks to all of you who have read this fiction so far. Hope you enjoy this latest chapter.
Diablo: Redemption Chapter 7
Moreina, Aedan, and the others make their way towards the Hinterlands, and discover that something far darker now plagues Thedas.

Hello folks! Chapter 7 of Diablo: Redemption is in the works, the story is not dead, though some changes were made that makes the author note in chapter 6 completely pointless.
Wishing all my friends and everyone who passes by my Deviant page, a Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays.
Chapter 6



The group, along with several soldiers made their way through the Temple. Aedan was looking around, cautiously looking for possible ambushes by demons, his sword ready.

Moreina, Varric and Leliana, walked together, their bows, and crossbow out. Varric’s eyes widened, as they saw what looked to Moreina as red gem stones.

“Seeker. That’s Red Lyrium.” Varric called out, to Cassandra.

Cassandra frowned deeply. “I see it Varric.”

“But what is it doing here?” The Dwarf asked, looking more concerned than Moreina had yet seen him.

“The magic from the breach must have drawn it to the surface.” Solas suggested.

Varric spat to the side. “It’s evil, don’t touch it.”

Moreina looked at Varric, she could tell he spoke from experience, she notched an arrow a habit whenever she found anything considered evil, she found demons nearby.

Leliana seeing how tense Moreina was put a hand on her shoulder. Moreina looked to her, seeing the concern there.

“Are you alright, Moreina?” Leliana asked.

Moreina nodded slowly. “I will be, I’m just getting a really bad feeling about this place.”

Varric snorted. “That’s an understatement.”

Solas frowned as he looked up at the breach. “I think we’re all on edge right now, I feel cold, but I don’t think it’s the breach.

Cassandra stopped to look at Solas, arching a thin brow. “What do you mean Solas?”

“It feels like something inside the breach, something that leaves me cold.” The elf said rather vaguely.

“It feels familiar…” Moreina said softly.

Before they could ask the Rogue Captain what she meant, a green burst of fire shot from the breach, shooting far from the Temple of Sacred Ashes.

All around them, everyone looked confused, why would it land so far from the Temple? Moreina on the other hand looked terrified, sweat running down her brow.

Aedan noticing this stepped forward. “Moreina, what’s wrong?”

She couldn’t respond. Terror had grasped her heart, seizing her breath. She knew the feeling that emanated from that foreign object, she had faced it once before, in the depths below Tristram. Except now, it seemed more potent.

‘No, how could he have come here, he couldn’t have known.’ Moreina though desperate for it to be false.

Aedan grasped Moreina’s shoulders, noticing how cold and clammy her skin felt under his hands.

“Moreina snap out of it, what’s wrong?” The Warrior asked.

Cassandra though compassionate about many things, did not have a great deal of patience. She moved  up to Moreina gently pushing Aedan aside, then without warning, slapped Moreina across the face.

Moreina blinked, shaking her head, and rubbing her now throbbing check. Her vision cleared, she looked around, seeing the worried faces of her new friends around her. Then she turned her attention to Casandra.

“Thank you.” She said softly, reaching down she picked up her bow, and stood, nodding to the group. “Sorry, I….let’s go.”

Cassandra however was looking hard at Moreina. “What was that just now?”

The Rogue Archer looked at the Seeker, and sighed. “I’ll tell you all later, after we deal with that breach.”

Cassandra looked like she wanted to press the issue, but knowing what was at stake nodded.

Varric stood back, watching, he knew that look he had seen it before on Hawke’s face when Quentin had killed Leandra, except magnified by a hundred. A look of pure horror. He knew the others could tell as well, whatever had fallen from the breach, had scared Moreina that badly.

Solas as well felt what Moreina felt, being attuned to the Fade as he was, he thought of the most potent demon he knew, a Pride Demon, whatever fell from the Breach, dwarfed that, by a giant margin.

“Come on, we need to get moving.” Moreina said, putting on a brave front.

Leliana spoke up, sympathetic to Moreina’s feelings, it was amazing how easily one can connect with others after fighting beside them in battle.

“She’s right, let’s go.” Leliana said taking Moreina’s hand and gently coaxing her forward.  The Two archers walking side by side, made their way ahead of the group.

The others exchanged glances, Cassandra was the first to start following, then the others. Behind them the soldiers followed. As they walked the amount of Red Lyrium grew, Varric was nervous, so much of the stuff was not a good sign in the slightest.

Everyone had their weapons out and ready, but so far no demons attacked then. As they turned a sharp bend to continue down the path, they heard a voice, like an echo on the wind, a voice sinister.

“Keep the sacrifice still.” The voice was foreign to everyone.

“What are we hearing?” Cassandra asked, looking around sharply.

“The veil is thin here, we might be hearing memories, things that happened in this place.” Solas explained.

“We have an intruder….kill him.” The voice commanded.

“Run! You must warn them!” A woman’s voice shouted urgently.

Both Cassandra, and Leliana recognized the voice. “That’s Divine Justinia’s voice!” The Seeker shouted.

They hurried down, continuing to their destination, as they jumped off a short ledge, they beheld a vision, an echo of the past manifested by the Fade.

A shadowy figure with no distinguishable  features stood before the Divine who was floating in the air, strands of magic holding her arms out to the sides.

Before their eyes, an image of Aedan ran into the area. His face blank. “What’s going on here?”

The shadowy figure turned pointing at the image of Aedan. “We have an intruder, kill him.”
The image of Divine Justinia turned her head, urgency in her expression.

“Run! You must warn them!” The urgency in her voice was palpable for the group.

The vision ended, and Cassandra rounded on Aedan, who looked confused.

“You were there, who was that? What are we dealing with?” Cassandra demanded desperate for answers.

Aedan looked to her annoyance visible on his face. “I told you. I don’t remember.”

“We can’t start pointing fingers now.” Moreina said looking up, above them the breach swirled.

Aedan followed her gaze, and nodded. “How do we close that? I don’t think I can reach it from here.”

Solas shook his head. “No. But this rift was the first, if we seal it, we may close the breach.”

The bald elf stepped forward, studying the rift. “It looks like it was closed but not properly….we’ll need to open it to seal it.” He said.

Cassandra knew what that meant, she turned to the soldiers behind them who looked nervous, but ready. “That means demons, take up defensive positions!”

The soldiers did as commanded, drawing their swords and moving to different locations around the rift.

Moreina, turned and ran. Up the ledge, and drew her bow, across from her on another ledge, Leliana also readied her bow. The two archers readied their arrows, and waited.

Varric moved back enough so he could make shots at whatever demons came out of the rift. Aedan and Cassandra drew their swords, and Aedan stepped forward.

Everyone watched as Aedan extended his hand, and forced the green light into the silent rift. It exploded outwards and with a green flash a demon appeared.

The demon was huge, towering over them all, draconian in appearance a dark purple, with black eyes. Moreina  standing on the ledge had seen demons before, but this one, was almost as big as Diablo, she trembled slightly.

Then the memories of all those she had killed while in the service of the demons came to her, her eyes hardened, she had been sent here to atone for her sins, the crimes she committed the deaths she had caused.
“Attack!” Aedan shouted.

Though it was not Cassandra who shouted the command, though it was the man they had suspected of killing the Divine Justinia, the soldiers, as well as Cassandra, and the others attacked.

The Pride demon roared lashing at them with whips of lightning, Leliana, Moreina and Varric, plus any soldier that used a bow were safe from the lightning whips, but the warriors and soldiers who fought with a sword or axe was in danger.

Aedan proved his athletic skills as he jumped over the whips as they slashed sideways across the ground, and rolling to the side when they came straight down.

Seeing an opening in the demon’s defenses, he struck with his sword. To no avail. The demon’s skin was rock hard, and the sword merely connected against the demon’s hide.

“Aedan! Focus on the rift! It might weakening him!” Cassandra shouted.

Aedan moved back, as Cassandra rushed forward, the soldiers following her lead, and attacking the demon to distract it.

Moreina and Leliana fired arrows, aiming for the demon’s eyes, hoping to blind it. It was as if a barrier was surrounding the demon, as their arrows seemed to have no effect.

Moreina frowned deeply. Taking out an arrow the Rogue Archer drew back the string until it became taut. Her arrow head started to glow brightly. And she let it go. It pierced forward shooting through the barrier, and piercing the demon’s eye.

The Pride demon roared in pain, giving Aedan the time he needed, focusing his mark on the rift, the rift burst, then calmed. With the rift briefly silent, the Pride demon fell to it’s knees. Cassandra’s eyes widened.

“Now! The demon is vulnerable!” She shouted.

All at once they attacked the pride demon, slashing at it with swords, the archers pelting it with arrows, their brief assault ended with the rift burst open again, and the Pride demon rose with a roar, several sloth demons also emerged from the rift, now dividing the soldiers’ attentions.

The other soldiers were forced to contend with the lesser demons, while Aedan and the others focused on the Pride demon. Aedan fought alongside Cassandra while keeping an eye on the rift.

When the rift pulsed again, he turned his attention to it, holding out his hand, and once again the demon fell to it’s knees.
Moreina fired arrow after arrow into the demon’s hide, using her pierce ability to make sure the arrows did some damage to the demon. In her mind she saw the Pride Demon as Diablo, the Lord of Terror who had plagued her nightmares since leaving the Catacombs who drove her to madness, leading her to side with Andariel.

Each arrow shot from the Rogue’s bow accentuated her anger, her passion for justice renewed. She decided she would tell her new friends her past, of that which fell from the breach, and should they decide to punish her, she would accept.

Finally, with everyone fighting hard against the Pride Demon, and lesser demons, they fell.

“Seal the breach!” Cassandra shouted to Aedan.

Aedan wasted no time, rushing up to the rift and extending his hand. The green light pulsed from his hand, into the rift, and with a flash, the rift sealed. Aedan swayed, then fell forward, collapsing on the ground.

“Aedan!” Moreina shouted as she leapt from the ledge she was standing on and rushed to his side.

Everyone gathered around the fallen warrior, though he seemed to be still breathing it was easy to tell the cost of using the mark as he had. Out of a sense of duty for one of the first friends she had Moreina lifted the warrior up after struggling to carry his weight she felt him lighten.

Cassandra had taken hold of his other side and archer and warrior carried him back to haven.



___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Moreina out of a sense of duty to a friend,  sat beside Aedan as he lay in bed, his breathing was normal but he was still unconscious. Solas had explained that the magic Aedan unleashed from the mark had exhausted him.

Hearing the door open, Moreina looked up. Cassandra stepped in giving Moreina a gentle smile.

“How is he?” The Seeker asked.

“The same, still unconscious.” The glanced at Aedan her hands resting on her lap.

How did it come to this that she would find camaraderie with people she didn’t know as quickly as she had. Though the dangers of life threatening situation and fighting demons could bring people closer. She had never felt strongly for anyone since she lost the man she had fallen in love with when they fell to the corruption.

“Come, let’s get you some fresh air.” Cassandra coaxed.

Moreina looked at Aedan then sighed. Knowing she couldn’t do anything at the moment, she stood up and followed the Seeker.

“I want to ask for your help.” Cassandra said as soon as they stepped outside.

Moreina glanced at Cassandra, studying the woman.

“My help with what?” She asked.

Cassandra was silent, as they walked, considering how best to answer, to voice her request.

“I need someone skilled with archery, someone who can train others to be like her, women who can use a bow.” Cassandra explained.

“What about Lady Leliana?” Moreina asked.

Moreina had seen Leliana’s skill with a bow, she was very talented.

Cassandra paused, having stepped past the gates she gazed at the soldiers training, Cullen was a fine commander, training his troops into the soldiers they were. She turned her gaze back to Moreina.

“Leliana’s job takes up a great deal of her time. We have plenty of soldiers, but we need more. Especially if the danger that Divine Justinia wanted Aedan to warn us about is real.” Cassandra said.

“I could….” Moreina said softly.

‘Dare I though, to recreate the Rogue Sisterhood here on Thedas?’ Moreina thought to herself.

She thought of all those she left behind, her friend Kashya. High Priestess Akara, and all the Sisters she had betrayed. Controlled by a demon or not, she blamed herself. Her sadness and hesitation was evident on her visage, because she soon felt a hand on her shoulder.

Looking over at Cassandra, she saw the concern in the woman’s expression, but also hope in her eyes.

‘I can do this, I can bring honor to those I betrayed.’ She thought, then smiling at Cassandra she nodded.

“I’ll do it. But if I do I will train them to be Rogues.” Moreina said firmly.

Cassandra smiled, remembering what Moreina had said to her and Solas. “A Rogue Sisterhood. I think Thedas can use such a group. Thank you.”

“I’ll get started tomorrow. If you know any women willing to take up the bow and fight, send them to me….” She paused for a moment looking around, then pointing to a copse of trees to the right of the gate. “Over there.”

Cassandra nodded, once more placing a hand on Moreina’s shoulder. “Thank you again.”

The Rogue nodded and gazed up at the breach, still in the sky but silent. Aedan’s closing of the rift had silenced the breach, but not closed it. Her mind went back to that moment, seeing that object fall from the Breach.

Turning around, Moreina made her way back into haven, she had a great deal of planning to do, if she was to reform the Rogue Sisterhood.


___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Unknown to Moreina and the people of Haven, who were celebrating their brief victory, the Breach gave a slight flash, and two objects fell from it, close together, it looked as though two figures held each other, falling from the breach, and landing in the country known as Orlais.

The impact scattered wildlife, and within the crater lay two people, a large man with dark skin, wearing gold armor, with a sword strapped to his back, and in his arms, a woman with silver and blue armor, long blonde hair, falling past her shoulders, and a huge mace and shield on her back.

The two lay there silently in the wilderness.

A.N: That ends chapter 6, and ends the Temple of Sacred Ashes Arc, also yeah anyone who’s played Diablo 3 should know who those two are, but they won’t make a major appearance until much later. Next up is the HInterlands Arc.

Hope you all enjoyed the first arc of Diablo: Redemption.
Alright, so as the few of you (Those of you watching my page) know, I've been writing a Diablo/Dragon Age fanfic, titled Diablo: Redemption (For lack of a better title, cause I'm horrible at names and titles.) I am wondering if I am improving as I write, or if  those reading the story so far are losing any interest at all, so what I need is for everyone that reads it to give me some advice, or input on how I can better myself as a writer. Also if anyone has any suggestions on a better title for the story, I would appreciate it, thank you.

Wish I could take more credit sadly I used www.rinmarugames.com/playgame.… so while I used it to make the characters, it's technically not my art.
