Naxus's eyes widened.
"It can't be... the Rite of Gia?!? But that's only supposed to happen when they reach a new form!"
Sure enough, a spiral of energy surrounded Richand's floating body. However, he didn't appear to have changed like Drake had, nor were there any elementals around him. Suddenly, a huge orb of light appeared. It seemed to be an elemental, but like nothing anyone had ever seen before.
"I AM THE ELEMENTAL OF THE STARS, THE GOD OF LIGHT. I HAVE LAIN DORMANT FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS... I GIVE YOU MY POWER."
The orb entered Richand's body, and in another blinding blast of light, Richand descended to the ground. He was quiet for a moment, his eyes closed. Then, they snapped open, glowing golden.
"IT'S OVER.... NAXUS!!!!!!!!"
A huge blast of power spread out from Richand. When it cleared, Richand looked completely different. His armor was glowing brightly, he was surrounded in a golden aura, and his hair was standing up on end, a pure, glowing white. His sword seemed to be covered in white flame.
OOC: Unlike the normal Rite of Gia, in which the form is permenant, the power of the Constellation elemental is so strong that it must be accessed. Think of it like becoming a Super Saiyan from Dragon Ball Z: You can "power up" for brief periods of time once you learn to control it.

Ok i get it, nice adaption.
"Oh man i want in on this." Drake wings ripped out of his clothes and he flew other to Richand ignoring Naxus.
"Looks like you just became my equal, or better I dunno." Drake shurged his shoulders and held out his hand.
"Were one of the same now, you ready to change the world."
Zanaku looked at what happened in amazement. "Woah, what light".
Made by Shadow*91
Richand grasped Drake's hand for a moment, and then let go.
"Drake... my friend... you must step back. This is something I need to do myself."
Richand turned back to Naxus and shot forward with blinding speed. Naxus didn't even have time to raise his arm as Richand connected with a powerful hit, blasting him back. Richand pursued him, and knocked him up in the air before he could even hit the ground. Naxus shot up in the air, and Richand blasted after him, slashing him with a gigantic combo of attacks. He finished by outstretching his left hand and placing it against Naxus's chest.
A beam of white light shot out of Richand's hand, smashing Naxus to the ground with the force of a tank. Richand floated back down to the ground as Naxus shakily got up, coughing up blood.
"Damn... it... Damn it, it can't be!!!"
"I hope your watching this farther. because he's the one who will lead us to change." Said Drake to the sky. Knowing Storm would hear him.
Drake looked around the battle field and noticed that they had started to win. The enemy was losing moral and his team was slowly picking every body off.
"Looks like this battle has been one."
Naxus spread his arms.
"I cannot... I WILL NOT accept this! Shadowheart Armor! FULL POWER!!!"
More shadows leeched on to Naxus, increasing his aura even greater.
"I will never lose to a thing like you!"
OOC: Cell quote . Also, Nicklas's speech was inspired by Android 16 telling Gohan to unleash his power, although it's much different from that one.
IC: Naxus dashed at Richand, claws outstretched to kill. Richand parried the blow and the two locked into a furious frenzy of attacks, similar to their earlier battle. This time, however, Richand was the one who didn't seem to be trying as hard. He blocked every attack that Naxus threw at him, countering with several that Naxus barely blocked. Finally, Naxus exploded with rage.
"This is it! I'll finish you!!!"
Cupping his claws together, he created an orb of deep blue energy.
"Shadowheart Sickle! I'LL END YOU!!!"
The orb shot out a gigantic blast of blue energy that completely covered Richand. Naxus laughed.
"Hahahahah!!! You're dead, human!!! Go meet your brother in hell!!!"
However, when the blast cleared, Richand remained with not a scratch on him.
"For what you did to Nicklas... I'll never forgive you."
"What?! Im-Impossible!!! No one... EVER survives that!!!"
"I WILL AVENGE HIM!!!"
Richand shot towards Naxus and slashed him diagonally downwards with his most powerful blow yet.
The air around the two exploded in white flame as Naxus was wrenched from his host. His human host, a Destrian warrior who looked like he had not slept in months, collapsed to the ground, unconcious. The pool of darkness that was Naxus quivered feebly on the ground, near death.
"Please... don't kill me... have... mercy..."
"What? Show you the mercy you've never shown anyone?!? Tell me why I should spare you, the monster who killed Siana's father, the monster who killed my brother, in cold blood!?!?"
"Please... I... beg you..."
Richand paused, then turned his back on it.
"Get out of my sight. The next time I see you, I won't hesitate."
The demon backed away, but suddenly shot a huge blast of darkness toward Richand.
"I WILL KILL YOU NOW!!!"
Richand turned around and saw the blast coming.
Richand shot out a huge beam of light that disintegrated the blast of darkness in the air and blasted Naxus.
Naxus disintegrated into nothing. He was dead.
Richand powered down and returned to normal. All the Destry soldiers had either fled or lay dead or badly wounded on the ground.
Richand swayed on the spot and fell to the ground.
"Si...ana... I'll save you... I promise..."
As Richand blacked out next to the unconcious host of Naxus, he only saw one picture in his mind: A picture of two people. Nicklas, the man he had failed to save, and Siana, the girl who he couldn't fail, not now, not ever.
Richand fell unconcious.
OOC: Excellent job, everyone. This battle was the most epic yet, I believe.

"I found the Orb about a year after the incident with General Kylith. I was near the Grand Temple hoping to find some redemption when Destry launched a sneak attack. One of the cannons shot the temple, with me in it. I tried to get out when the floor colapsed. I fell into the shadows expecting death, only to wake an hour later. I was in an underground chameber made of a red polished stone. as I looked for a way out I found an inscription telling the entire history of the Orbs and the meaning of the Temple. Once I read that I searched and eventually found the Orb of Conud. It was a big red pearl with a green design on it. As soon as I touched it I heard to voices. One told me I would help save this country, the other said I would destroy it. Then the orb suddenly vanished into my armor. The mechanical system in it dissappeared into the Orb and my armor changed into what it is now. I don't know how to remove the Orb and I've spent my life afterwards moving from place to place, doing what I could to keep the Orb safe at all costs."
Xenth finished his story as Seth had a drink. Both were sitting comfertably in chairs although Xenth uad his arns and legs tied to prevent an escape. "I see. So you found the Orb because of us and the plan for you is so twisted because you could both save and destroy this war. I do believe the Orb should be taken from you, however I believe only Sekhmet would know how. I know how all the Orbs work, as well as of the origins, having been there myself. However items embedded with ancient power would be something Sekhmet is more proficient with. So you will stay here until he returns. While your sword and armor shall go into my vault for safe-keeping. Servant."
A servent pressed a stone on the wall and suddenly a painting moved back to show a grand vault door. It had no lock or combination but rather a seal and inscription that read: Only those of Eternal right, shall see through the wall with sight. Seth walked forward and sooke the same language as before. The seal on the door glowed gold and the door vanished. Seth placed Xenth's sword and armor inside before muttering a word. The door reappeared and the servant pressed the button again, reseting the painting. Since my chambers have no window, and you cannot get into the vault you shall be untied. My servants will get you any food you desire. However the will not open the vault for only I know how."
A servent went and untied Xenth as Seth left the room. There was a soldier coming up the large staircase carrying an unconcious girl. "Soldier, where are you taking her?" The soldier stopped and set her down. "This is a gift from General Naxus sir. He ordered she be taken to Lord Valentine." Seth simply looked and asked "Who is she?" The soldier concentrated for a moment to try and remember the name. "Uh...I believe it was somethin' Makantes, sir" Seth's eyes opened at the name. "Makantes? My, my, Naxus sends a great gift. Soldier, I will take her up from here. You may go rest." The soldier bowed and left. Seth then picked the girl up and carried her up to Storm's chamber on the top floor. A servent knocked and announced him as he entered. "Lod Valentine. Naxus sends you a gift, a child of the Makantes."
OOC: Thanks Storm, I appreciate it. I worked pretty hard on those posts.
