Clouds shadowed the skies as a smothering darkness fell over the land. The black thunderheads roared with life and lit up the world in the unnatural dark. Lightning flashed across the sky, creating a blinding streak of light that dazzled out of existence as the darkness returned.
Elemenda raced to the top where Numean waited for him, wings straining to carry the young dragon to the crest to stop him. His light blue scales glittered whenever the lightning flashed and lit the changing world around him. He came to the ledge where Numean looked down at the world below, changing it to what he desired.
Elemenda landed close to the mountain to put as much distance between himself and Numean as possible as the red and orange dragon looked down at the universe from his perch at the edge of the ledge. "It's time for you to stop this, Numean."
Numean merely shook his head slightly and laughed, he was just starting to grow the horns that dragons eventually got as he aged, but for now all he had were tiny stubs on his head. "No, Elemenda, the situation is quite to the contrary. Now, I will obliterate all who oppose me in this world and make it mine. This will be the last time you stand against me."
Suddenly, Numean leaped at Elemenda, claws bared, but his attack passed right through the blue dragon as though he were made of water. Numean glanced down at his claw and saw that it was wet with a clear liquid. Elemenda's body had transformed completely into water.
A golden missile smashed into Numean from above, destroying the small rocky ledge and sending them all into a free fall. Cesarie broke away from Numean and dived away, folding her wings against her golden scales to speed away.
However, Numean had other plans and chased after her, diving through the endless space as they all shot towards the earth far below. He slammed into her back from above and caught her wings with his claws, ripping her off the feathers and tearing through her skin. She let out a howl of pain as Numean smiled wolfishly. "Never fly again."
"I'm coming!" Came another voice just before taking Numean from the side and forcing him away from Cesarie even though her wings were only ripped open more. The new red dragon that had appeared dived under Cesarie and snapped his wings open to slow their fall. "Elemenda! It's up to you now. I'll help Cesarie, but you have to finish off Numean! Now!"
Cesarie snapped open her wings as well, grimacing as the pain of her torn wings magnified. "Kira. We can't let Numean win this." He nodded and looked past her at Elemenda. She turned to look, too, as the water-bodied dragon fell towards them. "Come on, Elemenda!"
Far above them, the clouds spiraled into a funnel centered around Elemenda, converging with his body and making him grow until he was practically the size of a small mountain. He roared loudly and tilted into a dive, spinning himself until he was nothing, but a pillar of water raining down at Numean.
As the torrent came down towards him, Numean shook himself, trying to think of a way to escape them. Suddenly, what to do came to him. He is the only Dreamlord, after all. "Not today, Elemenda! I will destroy all of my enemies. I can't lose. I AM THE DREAMLORD!" His eyes shined the color of crimson as all the power escaped from him at once.
The world burst into a bright white light as all the heroes of the world were obliterated in a miraculous display of power. Elemenda, Cesarie and Kira were gone as well as any other hero that existed in the world. Not even Spyro or the rest of the good dragons could escape the blast. Only Malefor and Numean still remained, but there was still a shred of hope from the heroes yet to appear...
