(You were expecting a story? Yes? Then begone. This is just an explanation. Most of you probably noticed some in-character mentions of a war my OC fought in, and wondered about it. Well, I figured I'd shed light on some of it. Not all of it, for my own reasons, but enough of it.)

And so it was that the virtuous forces, having shown their unwavering faith in our Most High God, Yahweh L. Shaddai, met on the field of battle many times against the doomed, wicked armies of Lucifer Ha-Satan, who would plunge all worlds into an eternity of sin and vice.
The top generals of Our God's forces were the Six Princesses, [DATA CORRUPTED] and Rhyter A. Blooddeath(3), as well as their brother and Lord, High Prince Y-sh-a M-s-ia- (4), and last, but by no means least, Princess Rhyter's close friend, who once commanded the C-le-t-al -e-ce--ep-rs and the A-ur- K-ig-t-oo- against the Lucifer's foul forces, Kaizell Ventus(5), known through history as [DATA CORRUPTED] but, as of this entry, answers to the name "Mugen K. I. Kagemaru" and is the holder of the title of "Endless Warlock" as of his victory over Bernkastel The Tormentor.(6)

"Operation Desperate Strike" was, and still is, the designation of the near-suicide mission undertaken at the end of the Final War at the End of Days.
The mission objective was simple. A two-person team would infiltrate Hell and attempt to at least decisively cripple Lucifer's forces, and, if possible, attempt to Eliminate Lucifer Ha-Satan himself.
It was discovered that, outside of Our God and His Beloved Son, one other possessed the capability to strike down Lucifer if able.
Mugen Kaizell Inexplicabilis(7) Kagemaru.
Many expressed disappointment, either at not being the one who could end the War, or at it being Mugen. Others rejoiced that someone like Mugen could bring the suffering of the War to a final end. Mugen himself refused to comment, claiming that he did not wish for the revelation to go to his head.
His selected companion was his close friend, Princess Rhyter A. Blooddeath, and they soon departed with the Blessing of Our God.
In hindsight, we should have sent Our High Prince with them. Perhaps the tragedy that struck might have been averted.
Mugen succeeded in striking down Lucifer, but at great cost to his own ability. A thought-to-have-been-Eliminated enemy, Jacob Bailey, [DATA EXPUNGED], returned [DATA EXPUNGED], and sought to bar their progress. Our Fair Princess accepted his challenge, so that Mugen could press onward to the confrontation with Lucifer. After Lucifer had been struck down, Mugen had depleted much of his stamina and power supply. |||||||| ||||||| chose then to elude Our Fair Princess and attack Mugen while his guard was down. Our Fair Princess caught up with and Eliminated him, but the damage was done.
Mugen's soul was lost that day. The loss destroyed Our Fair Princess, who carried his blade back to Her Father. It is enshrined to this day in Our God's Temple, in memory of his sacrifice and his unrivaled valor even when the opponent was Fate itself at work.
And so the Final War at the End of Days came to an end, though its terrors were far from ov
DATA FEED INTERRUPTED BY ADMINISTRATOR "EndlessMagic"
<EndlessMagic> And just what do you think you're doing, hacking into my TARDIS, hmm? I don't think so. -MK
LOGGING OUT. DONE.
<EndlessMagic> Do this again, and I will not be as merciful. Go ahead, test my restraint. I'm already angry enough that you broke in. -MK
Chose to write this from the perspective of a scribe of sorts, so excuse the allegedly religious gushing at some points.
This took a while to write. From the get-go, I decided to have Mugen interrupt the feed to scold the reader for accessing his ship/home's databank without his consent, so no, I did not just give up on it. Still, half the things I covered here I didn't think about when I drafted this in my head while sitting on the pot once I'd gotten off work.
