Previously in "Blue Nexus": A new superhero emerged just after Alucard's reign ended, a hero whose powers rely on all forms of light named Prism. The man aided in the battles against the evil mages in the Magus War and has become a prominent member of the Zanderia since then, but not much has been learned of his powers...until now!
Kyle shrugged. “Where’d you get these from, again? Phoenix, you said?”
“Straight from the moon base,” Brenda said.
“I though she was taking a break from all of this?” Kyle asked.
Kyle raised an eyebrow. Another cloaked figure, though this one with some torn-up clothing, rose up from the crater and stood level with Kyle. He groaned and rolled back his shoulders to stand all the way up. The bright moonlight struck down on him as dust rolled away and he drank it in, his body filling with silvery light.
“She’s here,” Kyle said. “She and I were hanging out before you dropped by.”
Kyle just nodded, perplexed out of his mind. Prism was about Phoenix’s age, maybe a few years younger, but carried himself like someone fresh out of college or something like that. He had a pretty neat power set, too, able to gain power from any kind of moonlight and, based on the light that he drank in, could manipulate it for various abilities. Solar energy, as Kyle understood, gave him flight abilities, while lunar energy granted him enhanced senses. Kyle also understood that he’d worked with a few underground scientists to create it so his suit could store that light energy for different uses.
“Has it happened before?” Kyle asked.
“So you’ll come?” Prism asked.
“Plus I think it’d be best if we have Shindari check the area for anyone else that may have followed you,” Kyle said. “If your hunch is wrong, we’re going to need a backup plan, right?”
“Which one?” Kyle asked.
“Sounds like this guy may have gotten through them already,” Kyle said.
“Think this friend of yours knows about it?” Kyle asked.
Kyle finally broke his stare with the top of the pyramid and followed Prism across the head desert sands to a small inlet in the base of the pyramid, one only visible when Prism waved his hand over it and a golden light coated the area for a brief moment. He placed his hand upon it and the entire pyramid shuttered. Kyle gripped his fists and took one glance around.
“Well, remind me not to leave you behind, then,” Kyle said.
“Make sure we take this guy alive, too,” Kyle said. “We need to find out how he got in here.”
“How did you stop my abilities?” Prism asked.
“Funny thing about the Nether,” Kyle said. “Turns out I’ve been there, and I did let the darkness get to me a bit.”
Kyle’s aura flared again and TaKar was right atop him. Kyle dodged, but not fast enough. He slammed against the wall, seeing stars, but pushed through the pain and punched out. Their fists collided. Kyle’s arm quivered, but he pushed through and surged energy forward as the darkness caught him again.
