Soul Edge and Soul
Calibur... if a human were to absorb the power contained within these two
put this idea into action. It was an idea no normal person would ever consider,
but for Zasalamel, it was his chance to attain true death.
He hid behind the scenes
during the battle between the cursed sword and the spirit sword, appearing only
when their powers reached their zenith. Then, using a secret art, he connected
his body to the world of the abyss and created a jet-black magnet that absorbed
all forms of energy. His plan was to use this to draw out the essences of the
two swords and take them into his body. It was an act that only Zasalamel, with
the knowledge gained from an eternity of lifetimes, could have performed.
Clusters of light, most
pure and fierce, were released from the swords. For a moment, they seemed to
struggle as if they had a will of their own, but then proceeded to be absorbed
into Zasalamel's body. Power coursed through his entire body, and he began to transform.
At the end of an
experience completely different from his countless rebirths, he had obtained
sharpness of senses, overflowing power, and a voice that thundered like an
echoing roar. Zasalamel thought that, having acquired this power, his goal had
been achieved. The peace and death that he had sought was right before his eyes.
But deep within him, something other than himself was beginning to awaken. He
had invited into himself an inhuman power.
