“Ren can manipulate his aura,” explained Xander. “It’s easier to understand once you see it. The short version is that he’s equal to me in every way, something about Fate keeping us at equal power. If one of us gets stronger, the other will easily catch up.” Xander scratched the back of his head. “Every natural-born Rularian has a Regalia, it’s what their innate ability is called. It’ll always be different, even between relatives. Ren was born with the rarest Regalia type, Aura Manipulation. I’ve seen some crazy things over the years, but Ren isn’t someone to take things lightly... ever.”
“No need to worry,” said Aurora. “If that Warp Gate falls apart, I’ll place down an Infinite Gate, but we’re going to have to reconfigure it.” Her bracelet beeped. “And speaking of the gate...” She and Xander turned toward it.
A large, golden light came through the Warp Gate and it appeared as if it was surrounding something. The strange light was radiating, pulsing even. After a few second passed, it dissipated and the person in the center stood tall. His black hair was slightly messy, but the golden rings in his eyes were as luminescent as the sun. Dressed in a black, royal gi with golden edges and a white undershirt, he held a more stern expression. He marched up to Xander and was noticeably a few inches shorter in height.
“Lucis,” he addressed Xander sternly.
Xander couldn’t keep a straight face. “That outfit brings me back when we were under the same master,” he laughed, knowing it annoyed Ren.
“Tsk,” Ren crossed his arms and noticed Gufuu. “So that’s the threat?”
“You’ll need to wait,” Aurora told him. “We’re giving the robots a chance to end things nonviolently.”
“And we’re the cavalry?” Ren already figured it out. “Fine, I’ll wait, but the moment something goes horribly wrong, Lucis and I won’t hesitate to intervene.”
“Fair enough,” shrugged Aurora.
