Duel-Devil:Loose Ends Day 15
The Island of Ricca, 1940
Within the inter sanctum of his castle. The Claw stands naked on an ominous symbol. He takes out a rusted dagger and cuts his hand. The blood pours out on to the symbol.
"I call upon the sinister power of Gen-I!!! Your greatest creation beckons you forward!!!!"
A red cloud of smoke appears before Claw. It shapes itself to match the skull of Claw.
"CLAW FAVORITE OF MY EARTH SONS!!!! WHY DO YOU CALL UPON GEN-I??"
"Father, soon I will have the means to free you from your hell dimension. You will walk this planet and feed upon the pathetic swine that inhabit it."
"YOU HAVE FOUND ONE WORTHY?"
"Yes Father, I found a special soul in the land of Pan Guay. I sacrificed two of my greatest weapons to prepare him. He is a noble soul twisted into a hideous vision of hate. Soon he will be ready to be sacrificed in your name. He will take your place in hell."
"SOON WE WILL BE ONE, SON OF MINE!!!!"
The cloud of red smoke explodes, burning the flesh from The Nightmare of Ricca. It will regenerate and his power will be even greater.
Weeks have passed since Duel-Devil killed Pan Guay Jake. The Ghost has taken over the training of Bart Hill, known to the world as Duel-Devil.
He has taught Bart Hill how to properly investigate criminal activity. How to interrogate a suspect without having to make a threat. How to follow the smallest clue to solve a case.
There is little Ghost can teach Bart Hill about fighting, that Bart does not already know. So he gives him a crash course in forensic investigations. He teaches him how to drive a car and motorcycle. Finally he teaches him to pilot a plane.
When The Claw finally makes his move, this knowledge will be very important.
Ghost still refuses to reveal his true identity to Bart Hill. He trust the boy, but his aura and mystique must be protected.
After weeks of working together in the field, Ghost presents Bart Hill with a package. He opens it and sees a red and blue Duel-Devil uniform. The one he always envisioned having. For the last few weeks, Bart has simply worn a ski mask.
Ghost looks at him.
"I apologize for changing the colors. Red and Blue seemed more fitting for a Devil."
"No that's fine."
The phone rings in the Ghost Mausoleum.
"Ghost, explosions hit the docks!! Suddenly these Eyes Of Claw are shooting people. They are packing serious heat."
"NO... We were suppose to have more time. Duel-Devil go to the Ghost Plane. The time has come."
