"Order! Order!" cried the black robed figure at the front of the hall "This
meeting of the Society of Dark Kyrii will now come to order." The hall quieted
instantly. Nobody wanted to get on Rouge's particularly bad side. He had no
good side. Just a bad side, and a particularly bad side. Anyway, where was I?
"Now then," said Rouge. "The first matter, is that of welcoming our newest
A young blue Kyrii walked shyly up to the front of the hall.
"Kyriisaac, do you swear to help those less fortunate?" asked Rouge.
"Um...yeah," said the little Kyrii.
"And do you swear to protect all Kyrii and their owners?"
"Um...uh...yeah, I guess so."
"And to promise to follow the requests of the Faeries?" At this, the young
Kyrii nodded his head rapidly.
"And finally," said Rouge, "do you promise to uphold the honor of the Dark
The young boy thought for a moment. You couldn't really blame him, because,
one, he was very young and had trouble deciding things on his own. And two,
because at an age of 10 days, upholding anything was a difficulty.
Finally Kyriisaac nodded his head and said, "Yup yup yup."
"Then in the name of our founder, Yikir the wanderer, I hereby accept you,
Kyriisaac, into The Society of Dark Kyrii!"
Two dark robed Kyrii, with their hoods pulled back, unlike their leader Rouge,
came up to the young Kyrii, and painted him with the mystical Dark Kyrii Paintbrush,
and presented him with his black robes, while the Kyrii seated in the Great
Hall growled in applause.
"This is very very bad," said the Faerie Queen. The Space Faeries looked over
"What is it?" she asked
"Apparently, someone has been creating an army of Robot NeoPets, by recruiting
helpless pets, then leading them to their 'base of operations' and tricking
them to going to the secret lab, and transforming them into Robot Pets, then
putting slave collars on them, and making them into mindless slaves."
"We should tell the Neopians!" cried the Water Faeries.
"NO!" said the Earth Faeries. "There is no need to get them worked up and panicking.
We've only warned them before when the attack started, we should do the same
in this situation."
"She's right," said the Light Faeries. "We should rally my battalion of Faeries
"No," said the Dark Faeries. "All they can do is fly, and plenty of Neopians
can do that already. We should send in the VirtuPets who sided with us."
"That would be most illogical," said the Library Faeries, "as the Neopians
will not be happy to know that the mutant pets are the ones fighting off the
attack. We should recruit an army of intelligent, fast, agile, strong, NeoPets."
About ten seconds after this comment, all of the Faeries were arguing over
how they should go about it. Finally the Faerie Queen was fed up with it all,
and yelled uncharacteristically loudly, "BE QUIET!!!! ALL OF YOU!!!"
All the Faeries turned to the Faerie Queen.
"Now then," she said, "if we all just sat down for a while and thought about
it, without arguing, we'd know who we need. Actually, I figured it out in a
small amount of time, and with a large amount of noise, but that isn't the point!
The point is, that we all know who we need and that is..."
The Society of Dark Kyrii was called to an emergency meeting in the great hall.
Rouge didn't even need to call for order. When an emergency comes up, Dark Kyrii
are pretty darn orderly.
"We have just received word from the Faeries, that someone has been assembling
an army of Robot NeoPets. The pets are first taken to the Secret Laboratory,
then given slave collars, and finally taken to their base. I have selected a
team of Kyrii to investigate. When I call your name, you are to step up to the
Kyriisaac sat in his seat, looking about nervously, (it's hard for a little
kid to adjust to being in a new place where you don't know anyone) when the
Kyrii next to him tapped him on the shoulder.
"Psst. Hey you."
Kyriisaac looked at the Kyrii, "Me?"
"Yeah. Hi. I'm Mikar, what's your name?"
"Kyriisaac," the young Kyrii responded.
"Hey, you're that new Kyrii who was accepted a little while ago. Well don't
worry. They treat you good here, and what's more, with a pal like me, you'll
get along here fine."
Kyriisaac smiled. "Yeah, thanks. It's hard being in a new place where you don't
As Rouge moved down the list, he called out, "Mikar the Sly!"
"Well that's me," said Mikar, "I guess I'll see you soon."
"Yeah, I guess so," replied Kyriisaac.
He had no idea how soon.
