The robed mage turned her head to Eradale,
"The technical details are a closely guarded secret. All I am able to tell you is that it is based off a combination of blood, soul and mind magics. The piece you take unto yourself will never touch your soul itself, but it designed to effect your aura in such a way that it would seem that Nocturne has possessed your body in a sense. The bind point will be your body, when you leave the radius of the Nexus shard the spell will be broken. If you move to far from the shard while in the shadows, we cannot say for sure how long the creatures there will be afraid of you."
She places the box in the sand and take out the shard, holding it in her left hand she uses the tip of the shard to cut her right palm, almost immediatly the area around them seemed to lose all colour black fog seemed to seep from the shard into her palm but stops suddenly as she pulls the shard away.
Her voice begins to echo as she commands the Nexus shard, a howl emits from the shard, before she growls at Nocturne, bending his will to do as she wishes,
"You will obey!"
The colour returns to the area around them. her voice returns to normal as she silently holds out the palm that was cut by the shard,
"Please, place your hands upon the shard."
If they placed their hands on the shard a pinch of pain would be sent through the nerves of their arms, it would feel like a fist had just crashed into the side of their skull yet they would be powerless to move, Nocturnes voice would whisper in their minds,
"You have no power over me wench... These minds will fall to the terror of what awaits them within the shadowsss.... You cannot protect them. Mortal."
At that moment Firions voice would thunder through all their minds,
"I HAVE POWER OVER YOU FIEND."
Nocturne would howl in anger then become silent.
With that, they would be able to move once more, they would feel no pain or really any different at all. The mage however swayed on one spot for a moment before dropping the shard into the box and slamming it closed. She would then climb into the boat without a word.
Firion, who was already in the boat simple said,
"We leave now, get in."
