"HeckDragonX, report to the main office!" I said. I was
sitting at my desk. I have become the leader of the Defenders of Light. My guild
is called the Defenders of Light headquarters. The building lies upon the Tyrannian
Plateau. Since the second fall of Virtupets, I have created the Defenders of
Light Headquarters to stop Dr. Sloth when he returns. It has been three months
since that day HeckDragonX had returned from the Virtupets Space Station. He
had brought three neopets back with him. Dr. Livingston is now our head computer
programmer. HeckDragonX and BurnDragonX are Defenders. Prototype_Barry is one
of our secret agents. He proved that he was fit for the rank when he snook around
the space station. Today, we are welcoming our new recruits.
"What is it Neiks3?" asked HeckDragonX.
"Meet Tonimono and Npmaster61!" I replied as
I pointed to a green Shoyru and it's owner.
I have decided to make Npmaster61 our Treasurer,"
"Thank you, sir!" said Npmaster61. "I have another
neopet, but he is sick and I left him home."
"That's okay!" I said. "HeckDragonX? Can you
show them the rest of the building?"
"Sure. Follow me!" said HeckDragonX. After he
left with Npmaster61 and Tonimono, someone appeared on my computer screen.
"This is the Supervisor of the Defenders of Neopia,"
said Judge Hog. "We have a problem down here that might be of some interest
"What could it be?" I asked.
"A weird Shoyru is sneaking around our base that
has the ability to disappear," said Judge Hog.
"We only have one Shoyru in our files of enemies,"
I said. "HeckDragonX!"
"Yes!" said HeckDragonX.
"This Neopet would like to have a word with you,"
I said. The Tyrannian Shoyru approached the screen.
"There is a Shoyru sneaking around our base that
has the ability to disappear," repeated Judge Hog. "Neiks3 is guessing that
it is someone you might know."
"Chameleon!" I said. "I wasn't expecting to see
him so soon."
"Will you help us?" asked Judge Hog.
"We don't really have a choice," said HeckDragonX.
"We will do it."
"Thank you!" said Judge Hog as he disappeared
from the screen.
HeckDragonX will be telling the rest of the story.
It was the next day. Dr. Livingston, Barry, BurnDragonX,
and I were in front of the Defenders of Neopia agency. We split up in search
of Chameleon. Later, I found met up with one of them.
"Barry!" I said. Barry was on the floor unaware
of his surroundings. I went over to him to see if he was okay. Barry had cuts
and bruises all over him. "Your in bad shape!" I said.
"Chameleon," whispered Barry as he lost consciousness.
"Chameleon, where are you? Come out you coward
and face me!" I yelled. A Shoyru appeared leaning against the wall.
"I would love to, but I have bigger fish to fry!"
"What happened to your eye?" I asked.
"The bartender at the space station!" said Chameleon.
"That guy went nuts. I was lucky enough to escape."
"I am not surprised!" I said.
"I will fight you later," said Chameleon. The
Shoyru backed against the wall and disappeared. I followed the sound of his
foot steps, but I eventually lost him. I kept searching. Later, there was the
sound of fighting not too far away so I went to investigate. Chameleon and BurnDragonX
were fighting. Chameleon took out a familiar looking object. Dr. Livingston
started talking to me from the radio on wrist.
"What is it, Dr. Livingston?" I asked.
"That weapon is the same claw you had defeated
the Monospectre with," said Dr. Livingston.
"We are in for some trouble," I said. "Where
"I'm right behind you," said the scientist. I
turned around to see that Dr. Livingston was at the other side of the hallway.
Chameleon attacked BurnDragonX with the claw. The Lupe collapsed to the floor.
Chameleon started to beat him into the ground.
"I told you that you would be sorry the next
time you saw me," said Chameleon.
"Stop!" I yelled.
"I think I have time to defeat you, too," said
Chameleon. The grey colored Shoyru charged toward me and I dodged him. As he
flew past me, I kicked him in the stomach and he fell backwards. The claw fell
from his grip and I grabbed it. I threw the claw to Dr. Livingston.
"Take it back to headquarters!" I commanded.
When I turned around, Chameleon was flying away. I threw a Supernova at him
and he fell into a bunch of trees. "I have lost him for now," I said. I picked
up Barry and BurnDragonX and carried them back to headquarters. As I was leaving
I found a torn piece of paper that read "Ransack Snakes."
Later, I asked Dr. Livingston about the part
of the paper that was recovered.
"I know many things about Ransack," said Dr.
Livingston. "Ransack was Virtupets's old enemy. The two of them fought against
each other to prove who was best. The ones who created Ransack were the snakes
that note was talking about. There are four of them. They are the leaders of
Ransack. All of them have a code name that is the same name as a type of snake.
They were once a part of Virtupets, but a rebellion started and Virtupets was
split in two. The loyalists stayed with Virtupets while the rebels created Ransack.
Virtupets defeated Ransack and the four snakes were never seen since then. I
will have to do some research on it. Meet me in my laboratory tomorrow."
It is the next day and we are all waiting for
Dr. Livingston to tell us his current news.
"I have found something that might help us,"
said Dr. Livingston.
"What is it?" I asked.
"I have found Ransack's current base," said Dr.
Livingston. "It is located just outside of Meridell. It is near the old village
that BurnDragonX use to live in. I hacked into the Virtupets system and discovered
that when his village was destroyed, it was done on accident. Dr. Sloth sent
Experiment to destroy the last of the Ransack members, but the mutant Lupe thought
that the village was where they were hiding, because they are close together.
The base is hidden by trees. When Sloth arrived, it was too late. The village
was totally destroyed. Dr. Sloth had no choice, but to take the survivors with
him. Since that accident, Ransack has grown. Virtupets can no longer stop them
with a few people. It would take almost all of his army to take out Ransack
right now. I don't think that Dr. Sloth is willing to make that kind of sacrifice.
Ransack is planning something, but none of Sloth's spies have ever made it back."
"Looks like we are going to have to figure out
what they are doing ourselves. They can't be up to any good," I said.
"We will have to go there," said Dr. Livingston.
"Master, tell BurnDragonX and Barry that we have
gone to Ransack's base and give them the directions when they wake up!" I said.
"We will be taking Tonimono with us."
"Okay!" said Neiks3. After we equipped ourselves
with what we needed, Tonimono, Dr. Livingston, and I set out on our new adventure.
It was night fall by the time we reached Meridell. We decided to visit the castle
to see how King Skarl was doing. When all three of us reached the castle, we
could smell food cooking.
"I guess King Skarl is eating dinner," I said.
We approached the castle to find a guard at the entrance.
"What is going on?" asked Tonimono.
"The castle is closed! Turn back!" commanded
"We asked you a question!" I snapped.
"I said the castle is closed!" replied the Grarrl
raising his voice.
"I will make a deal with you. If I defeat you,
we will gain access to the castle. Feel free to invite people in the fight to
help you at anytime. I drew my favorite weapon and hid it behind my back. The
guard attacked me, but I dodged him. I returned the attack and he fell to the
"Ransack!" said King Skarl. "I have heard about
them before. There is a rumor going around that they are planning to invade
whatever is left of Darigan's Army. Now that Lord Darigan is gone, I can finally
"We better talk to whoever is in charge of Darigan's
Army," said Tonimono.
"It is too late. It would be safer if we didn't
go there at night," said Dr. Livingston.
"You can stay here tonight and eat," said King
"Thank you, sir!" I said. We all sat at the table
and started to eat.
"Why are you so worried about Darigan?" asked
"It isn't really them that we are worried about,"
I explained. "We actually worry about Meridell and the rest of Neopia."
"Who are you people?" asked King Skarl.
"We are members of the Defenders of Light," said
"Can you pass the salt?" asked King Skarl. I
handed him the salt shaker. "I have heard some good things about you," said
"We have had some hard times to deal with," said
"How did it feel to defeat Dr. Sloth?" asked
"We did defeat him, but kind of indirectly,"
I explained. "I think that we should give Garoo's father the credit for that.
He caused an explosion that destroyed almost all of Sectors 3 to 6. It will
be a while until Sloth can get his space station running correctly again. Garoo's
spirit is finally put to rest."
"Did Commander Garoo die?" asked King Skarl.
"No Commander Garoo is Garoo II. His father is
Garoo I," I explained.
"Interesting, but how do you think Dr. Sloth
survived that?" asked King Skarl.
"I don't know," I replied. We slept at Skarl's
castle until sunrise. Then, the three of us left for Darigan's Fortress.
"Look! There is a Draconian Moehog!" said Tonimono.
"It doesn't look so good. I think he or she is
unconscious," said Dr. Livingston. We entered the fortress. The guards were
unconscious, too. The hallway led to a small staircase. We climbed the stairs
to the top and found more guards unconscious. As the three of us walked down
the hall, a door caught my attention. I peaked inside. There were ten people
standing in the room. All of them were wearing grey uniforms that had a logo
on it. It looked like a snake. The room had to be a dungeon. There was some
familiar faces locked up in cells. Such people were Clop the Draconian Moehog,
the Yellow Knight which is a Chia, Number Five the Lupe, Barallus the Korbat,
and Squire Meekel the Kacheek. The two guards, Galgarrath the Draconian Grarrl
and Haskol the Draconian Skeith, had been defeated also. Just then I noticed
Chameleon. In the middle of the men, was a table with someone strapped to it.
It was the Warden, Master Vex. Suddenly, everyone started to move towards the
"We have to hide!" I said.
"I'm good at hiding," said Dr. Livingston. "Everyone
lay on the floor."
"Okay!" I said. We laid on the floor and the
door opened. The men went in the other direction. The three of us entered the
"What happened here?" asked Tonimono.
"Ransack has taken over almost all of the army,"
said Master Vex.
"Have you seen any one suspicious around here
except Chameleon and the three of us," I asked.
"Someone with a weird mask," said Master Vex.
"I didn't do anything!"
"What?" I asked. Everything went black. I woke
to the sound of someone's voice.
"Good. Your awake," said Chameleon. "I knew you
would be sneaking around here. Pretending to be one of the Draconian Guards
did not fool me the least bit."
"Where am I?" I asked myself. I started to scan
the room. It was a room that was mostly white with computers and other metallic
objects. There were even Draconian Guards guarding the entrance. I was strapped
to the wall along with Dr. Livingston and Tonimono. "What is going on around
here?" I asked.
"Okay. Let's get down to business," said Chameleon.
"Ransack has been observing Darigan's Army since the Meridell War. We have sent
spies over here many times and have found that they have been planning a surprise
attack on Meridell with that warden as their leader. So we had to stop them
before they had the chance to attack."
"I don't believe you," I said. Just then, I started
to get dizzy. Dr. Livingston woke up.
"Are you okay?" asked Dr. Livingston as everything
went black, again. I had awoken to Dr. Livingston.
"Where am I now?" I asked.
"What do you mean?" asked Dr. Livingston.
"How long have I been out for?" I asked.
"You have been conscious since we left Darigan's
Citadel," said Tonimono.
"You told us that Ransack was just stopping Master
Vex from attacking Meridell," said the scientist. "After that, Chameleon let
"I never said anything," I said. "The last thing
I can remember is that I felt dizzy and you asked me if I was okay. The Neopets
Team has classified him as a Hero in their trading card game anyway."
"That is strange," said Dr. Livingston. "Both
of you go back to Meridell. I have some research to do."
It is the next day and Tonimono and I are asking
"Look! It is the Turmaculus! Lets try to wake
it up!" said Tonimono. I used my petpet, Doggie the Bearog, to try to wake him.
He threw cold water on it. It didn't work. Tonimono used his Angelpuss and it
ran into it. The Turmaculus opened it's eyes and eat the poor petpet.
"He sleeps like a rock and eats your petpets
without asking," I laughed.
That wasn't funny!" yelled Tonimono. All of a
sudden, a Lupe came running down the street. It was Number Five. I stopped him.
"How did you get away?" asked Tonimono.
"I barely escaped," explained Number Five. "Guards
were everywhere, but there was something wrong with them. Something different.
The two prison guards were thrown in cells along with the warden. I must go
to Jelly World."
"Do you know anything else?" I asked.
"No. Wait. I remember you. Your that Tyrannian
Shoyru that can't beat me in Cellblock!" said Number Five.
"I will beat you one day," I said. The old Lupe
walked into the distance. I started to hear a conversation going on about Darigan.
I walked toward the two people who were talking.
"Lord Darigan was a fool to take on Neopia by
himself," said the Blue colored Skeith.
"Your right, Brutal!" said the Fire colored Lupe.
"The news of Master Vex's plans have already
been sent to King Skarl," said Brutal. "Fury, what do you think the king's reaction
"He will probably do nothing," said Fury. "Skarl
would never guess that we are Ransack's top spies. We have never been caught.
"Both of us went in and out of there with ease,"
said Brutal. "They never knew what hit them."
"We are the ones who are going to attack Meridell.
After we take Meridell captive, we can move to the next land and take that one
over," said Fury.
"The only one who is better at spying than us
is Chameleon," said Brutal. All of a sudden, Chameleon appeared on the wall.
"I already knew that," said Chameleon. "Hurry!
We must get back to the Citadel."
"Okay," said Fury. Chameleon disappeared and
the two spies went back to the Fortress.
"Did you hear that?" I asked. "I knew this would
happen. So that is what Master Vex meant when he said that he didn't do anything."
"How are they going to do it?" asked Tonimono.
"I don't know, but we should visit the king tonight,"
It is night fall and we have entered the castle
to find King Skarl eating dinner again. We approached him.
"How are you doing tonight?" asked King Skarl.
"Sit and eat."
"Well, we have some bad news for you," I said
as Tonimono and I sat in a chair.
"I received some good news today. Ransack seems
to have stopped an invasion on Meridell," said King Skarl.
"That is the problem. We overheard two of Ransack's
spies talking about how they were really the ones who were going to attack Meridell,"
I said. "Without time to prepare your troops, your army will be destroyed."
"Do you have any proof?" asked King Skarl.
"Not yet, but I think it will be a while longer
until they are ready to attack," I said. Just then, a Shoyru jumped through
the sky light and landed on the table. It was Barry.
"They will keep half their original army at the
fortress," said Barry. "The other half of their original army and Darigan's
army will be sent to attack Meridell. They will be ready to attack within three
"It is even worst than I thought it would be,"
I said. Dr. Livingston started talking on my radio watch.
"I have finally come up with a name for this
device," said Dr. Livingston. "It is called a DOC. It stands for Defender's
"Is that what you called me for?" I asked.
"No," replied Dr. Livingston. "I have installed
a recorder into your DOC. I can hear everything you talk about because of that
device. You can use the recorder to play back their conversation."
"Thanks," I said. I brought it back to the conversation.
The recorder started to play. A minute later, I turned it off.
"I don't believe it! It is true. Those little
weasels!" said King Skarl. "This is an outrage! Green Knight!"
"Yes, sir!" said the Green Knight.
"Ready the troops!" said King Skarl. "Three days
should be long enough to prepare for battle. On the morning of the fourth day,
we shall attack Darigan's Fortress."
"I will stay here to defend the castle," said
"Barry and I will enter the fortress during the
battle," I said.
