Pious Augustus was a Roman Centurion who, while on campaign in Persia in 26 BC, was lured by a disembodied voice to three mysterious obelisks in the desert. Pious walked into the center of the obelisks and was teleported into a mysterious temple. Pious explored the temple, and discovered it to be infested with zombies. Armed with his Gladius, Pious slashed his way though the zombies and made it to a the center of the temple, where claimed one of three artifacts, the essences of one of the three Ancients, Chattur'gha, Ulyaoth, or Xellotath extradimensional horrors that have existed since before mankind, and plan to destroy humanity and conquer Earth for themselves. Pious is transformed into an undead liche and servant of the Ancient by the artifact, gaining powerful magic from the Ancients. Pious uses his new powers to bind the rival Ancient, Mantarok, and subsequently attacks several people who encounter the ancients over the next millennium. While Pious personally kills Roberto Bianchi, an Italian architect in 1460, and attempts (and fails) to shoot Dr. Edwin Lindsey, an archaeologist who encounters the forces of the Ancients in 1983, Pious often prefers to summon monsters to attack his enemies. Pious is finally killed by Alex Roivas in 2000, who stabs him with his own staff after destroying the "essence" of Pious' ancient, foiling Pious' plans to summon his master in into our universe.
Bishamon was in a temple. He had been mysteriously transported here for an unknown reason. He had been looking for what felt like eons. He still hasn't found it. Meanwhile, a group of big, red and muscular humanlike creatures were approaching him from behind. Bishamon heard them and with a flurry of strikes, left a bloody pile of limbs. Suddenly, a giant, red 3 headed creature appeared and roared at the undead samurai. Bishamon laughed maniacally.
"Finally, a worthy challenger in this maze!"
The Horror roared as it charged with his claws outstretched. Bishamon ducked and cut off one its arms. The Horror, enraged, threw a bolt of raw Magick with his other arm but Bishamon dodged and summoned ghosts that rip the Horror apart. Suddenly, he heard a sinister voice.
"I see you have survived my minions. But now, i will make you a servant of Chattur'gha!"
Bishamon turned to see Pious behind him. Bishamon readied his sword and charged while Pious took out his Gladius and clashed swords with him. Pious does a downwards stab at Bishamon but Bishamon counters and does a powerful diagonal slash that knocks Pious off balance. Bishamon goes for the kill but Pious creates a Magick shield that wards off the attack.
Pious decides to finish Bishamon off by using a Magick attack but Bishamon summons a giant ghostly hand and it starts to pull Pious down. He looked down in shock.
"No. What is happening to me?"
Suddenly, another hand popped out started pulling him through the ground.
"No! How could this happen? I can't die-"
His sentence was cut off as he was dragged through the floor to somewhere. Bishamon laughs maniacally in victory.
While Pious was a former Roman Centurion and could summon creatures to aid him, Bishamon could to and once in sigle combat, his superior Durabillity,skill, agility and speed won it for him.
Battle vs. Ganondorf (by SPARTAN 119)Edit
The dark lord Ganondorf walked into a large chamber in a temple of another world. This world too had three deities, each symbolized by a color... red, green, and blue (note the colors of the goddesses in Zelda and the Ancients in Eternal Darkness). Each of these deities had their own essence, hidden somewhere in the world, one hidden this temple. With the essences of the Ancients and the Triforce in his grasp, he would be unstoppable.
Suddenly, Pious Augustus teleported into the chamber, staff in hand.
"You seek something that is not yours", Pious said, "Leave this place, or face the wrath of Chattur'gha!"
"You think you can face me, do you have any idea who you are dealing with?! I am Great Ganondorf, ruler of Hyrule, and soon, the world!", Ganondorf said, before summoning a ball of energy from his hand and throwing at Pious.
As the energy ball neared him, Pious teleported away. Seconds later, Ganondorf heard a disembodied voice speak behind him.
"Anterbok, Redgormor, Chattur'gha", the disembodied voice said as Pious cast his magickal attack spell, unleashing a lighting-like bolt of energy. Ganondorf shouted in pain as the bolt struck him, but he quickly recovered, jumping up into the air and hovering off the ground.
Ganondorf summoned a barrage of energy balls, which flew in towards Pious. The liche blocked the first few magic attack, knocking them away with his staff, but several more attacks struck Pious, exploding and knocking him against the wall of the chamber.
When the smoke cleared, Pious was battered, but still very much able to fight. Pious unleashed another spell, this time summoning several creatures, including two zombies, two bonethieves, two trappers, a horror, a gatekeeper, and a guardian.
"Guardian's of Chattur'gha", Pious said, "Kill this intruder!"
The army of beasts advanced, only faced by a horde of monsters summoned by Ganondorf. The horror and guardian struck first, both of them firing of a magic attacks, striking down a ReDead and injuring a Moblin. The enraged Moblin tried to charge Pious' creatures with its spear, only to be hit by a blast from a trapper, forcing into the trapper dimension.
Meanwhile, the gaze of the remaining ReDead froze a Chattur'gha zombie in place, before a Stalfos lunged at, slicing apart with several swings of its sword, and then, for good measure, thursting its blade into the downed monster. A bonethief tried to lunge at the Stalfos, but it blocked with its shield and then swung its sword, slicing of the monster's head.
Unfortunately for the Stalfos, both it and its fellow were reduced to a mass of bones by the blast of magic from the Gatekeeper. The bonethief lunged at one of two surviving Moblins, cutting into the creature's head with its sword-like claws. The bonethief burrowed inside, putting the Moblin under its complete control.
The bonetheif-controlled Moblin impaled its fellow on its spear, killing the it instantly, before pulling out its spear and impaling Ganondorf's last surviving monster, a ReDead, through the head, slaying the zombie.
Furiously, Ganondorf transformed into a massive monster about 30 feet tall, so large he touched the roof of the ceiling, with a vaguely humanoid body and a boar-like head, armed with two massive swords.
Ganon swung his twin blades, slicing a Chattur'gha zombie and clean in half, before chopping all three heads off the horror in one deadly swing. The monster that was Ganondorf hacked through the rest of Pious' minions, before striking the liche himself, launching him across the room and slamming him against the walls.
Pious got up, and drew his Colt 1911, casting a enchant item spell on the weapon. The gun now glowed red, as Pious took aim and emptied the magazine into Ganon. Each bullet impacted with a flash of red light, as magick coursed through Ganon's body like electricity, causing the evil king to be temporarily immobilized by pain.
Pious then cast yet another spell, the disembodied voice of Chattur'gha saying the names of the runes: "Nethlek, Redgormor, Chattur'gha"- the dispel magick spell. Instantly, Ganondorf was transformed back into his human form. Pious walked forwards, staff in hand, towards his downed adversary.
"Did you think I would fall so easily?!", Ganondorf said angrily, drawing and swinging the Sword of the Sages in one fluid motion. The blow knocked the staff out of Pious' hand. Pious evaded Ganondorf's next strike and drew the gladius he had used almost a millenium ago as a Roman Centurion.
Pious blocked Ganondorf's next strike. Ganondorf stepped backwards, before attempting a thrusting attack. When the blade was about the hit Pious, however, he was gone- he had teleported away. Pious cast yet another enchant item spell, causing his sword the glow with the power of Chattur'gha. Pious lunged at Ganondorf, and plunged the blade into his chest before he could do anything.
Ganondorf fell to his knees, coughing up blood, as Pious said, "Fool.... the darkness shall be.... ETERNAL!", as the dark lord of Hyrule breathed his last.
WINNER: Pious Augustus
Pious won this battle because of his more versatile array of magic spells. His greater use of summoned minions, as well as a his thousand years of combat experience and greater tactical abilities also contributed to his victory.
