The Underworld. Perhaps the fears of humans molded this dark moldy world that resided just under their feet. Most here were already dead, the few exceptions being only the lost or the suicidal. It was no place for the living, and even for creatures born of darkness, this place still would give them the instinct to turn and head back to the coliseum. Souls moaned as they flowed down the River, creating the dooming mood that echoed through this world. Travelling deeper into the caverns, the moaning changes into a cheerful hum, originating from a white haired girl with glowing golden eyes. She was cheerfully humming a childish toon, her bare feet skipping across the cold stone as she glanced around, as if she was searching for something. Ivory hair swished back and forth, flowing around her as if all the death in this world could not touch her. She was garbed in a white flowy dress with golden designs and bows on her hips in black that cinched the dress together. Her arms from just above her elbows were wrapped in a silky black material that was bound up to her knuckles. There wasn't anything to lead anyone to knowing where she was from or why she was here, and there was no way she could give anyone a reason herself. The heartless girl wound through the corridors until they opened up to the river, and she chirped happily, her eyes looking up at the vast cavern ceilings that glowed lightly in the eerie glow of the water and souls below. Her pale hair glinted green with the glow and she spun around, dancing on the stone along the edge. A smile grew on her face as the time went by, the souls moaning as the backup singers for her song.

Eventually, the song and dance ended, and she glanced around before grumbling. Chi was somewhat tired of the emptiness in this world, and was considering leaving. She picked up a few stones and began skipping them across the water, her mind wondering.

"Hmm, I wonder if anyone even lives here. It's so quiet! Helllloooooo!?!" She called, interrupting her humming. Chi waited, listening for anyone or anything to respond.

"You can't just do whatever you want. You're the Underlord, you have a responsibility t--"

"Actually, you're mistaken. I'm the Underlord, so I can do whatever I want. That's kind of the point."

"You're not going to be Underlord for long if you keep postponing your meetings and shirking responsibilities."

"Have I mentioned how stupid the term 'Underlord' is?"

The two bickered, as they made their way through the caverns. The prominent figure, Rorschach, was six feet tall, which he considered an achievement. Having six feet over the ground beneath him meant he would break even at his second burial. Six above, six below; equilibrium. Poetic, even, considering his occupation.

"You also seem to be forgetting, this is a responsibility. A living being entering the Underworld is an occurrence worth noting. You should be congratulating me for taking initiative."

"So, you can rationalize interesting responsibilities, but not the mundane?"

"Precisely."

As the raven haired, amber eyed Lich arrived, he stood erect, as if still afflicted by rigor mortus. If the signs of his cold, lifeless flesh weren't enough to indicate his state of being, then perhaps the sickly texture of his skin would be prove prominent. Even his ripped and tattered clothing seemed warm in comparison, despite the abundance of dust and stains. Atop his left shoulder would be a rodent, seemingly much healthier and lively in comparison. Her 'fresh' flesh juxtaposed his kindly, accentuating how unnatural it was for the living to reside in this domain.

Before him, there was a girl in a white flowing dress, with matching hair as white as the Lich's was black. Her exclamation had helped the King find her precise location. Following the word of spirits was just as futile as any game of 'Chinese Whispers', or whatever the politically correct term was.

"Heyyyy," He began, faux-friendly, as precursor to his sarcastic nature. "This is the Realm of the Dead, and you're not, so...you're gonna have to leave." He said, with an expression that equated to, 'sorry, not sorry'.

"Or die." He immediately added, shrugging, wanting to give her some options. If she was perceptive, she would notice the rat rolling its eyes, obviously annoyed with the Lich's attempt at diplomacy. His body language clearly showed a lack of concern for his actions or comments, an indication of his unsociable behavior.

Abruptly, Chi turned on her heels and faced the man who now stood not to far away from her. Or at least what used to be a man. His body had long since rotted with the rest of this world. Observing closer, she could see the small rodent on his shoulder and a grin crossed Chi's features. She walked up to him, her golden eyes on the rat the entire time. She stopped just before him and intertwined her fingers together behind her back, grinning wildly.

His threat made her giggle, and she tilted her head, glancing up at him. "But your pet is here, and looks alive! Can I pet it? She is cute!" Chi exclaimed, pointing to the rat. She examined the two for a bit before she finally gave him attention. She studied his face, squinting her eyes and judging him. She placed one pale hand under her chin and hummed, sizing him up. His tattered body didn't seem to phase her much, it matched the rest of this world. Unconsciously, she wondered if he had a heart, or if he was empty like her. Chi's eyes flickered as she lined up the pieces about him and his unsocial personality. And she was determined to fix it.

"So I guess you are the one who is in charge of this place huh? It's awfully boring. What do you do here? Besides tell people to leave, which is very rude by the way. I just got here!" She chuckled lightly. After a moment, she placed a hand on his chest, feeling for any heartbeat. After a moment, she shrugged, and then felt her own chest. Still no heartbeat. "If anything, I think your little friend here is more alive than either of us. Can I hold her?" She asked, reaching for the rat carefully. A small smile crossed Chi's face as she stood up on her toes to reach.

As she turned around, she seemed to take notice of the rodent, and began to grin. Great. She neared him, and he stood his ground. He was unsociable, not afraid of human(oid) interaction. Glancing sideways, with a light sigh before returning his pupils to the female, he eagerly replied, "She's new. She'll be a rotting, disgusting corpse, soon enough."

His enthusiasm would've been contagious, if there was even a hint of sincerity in his commentary. Unfortunately, his inability to care would cause for a prolonged interaction. She seemed to have a resistance to how much of an ass he could be, but he was willing to this immunity. Everyone had a breaking point. Even the rat had limited tolerance, as she shot him a glare as he reminded her of her soon deteriorating body. Regardless of the circumstance, no one likes to be reminded of their mortality. Especially once an expired entity.

"To be fair, I did give you the choice of dying.", he responded, continuing to play the antagonist to the woman. She seemed to be adamant about staying, which didn't particularly bother the Lich for now. She was interesting, as most humans, regardless of circumstance, were not comfortable with meeting the dead. He ignored the rest of her comment, not feeling the need to respond to her assumptions about his supposed role. After his response, his rat let out an exasperated sigh, finally deciding to chime in.

"Listen, I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm not a pet. I'm on his shoulder, because I'm his colleague. And I have no reason to trust you." She explained, trying to be logical about the situation without being as rude as the supposed Underlord. He didn't deal with business often enough and let his desire to be clever and difficult get in the way of managing situations appropriately. "Can I ask what your business in the Underworld?"

A nod of understanding was the only response Chi had to his comment about the rat's dying body. From the look she gave, she was no more excited than Ror seemed to be about anything. 'What an odd pair', she thought to herself, rocking back onto her heels. Chi kind of liked them, although they were dark, and she assumed the dead man wasn't one to joke, it didn't phase her. She stuck her tongue out at him, making a noise.

"You couldn't kill me if you wanted to, Underworld guy. Just to be fair." She teased, her eyes flickering with excitement. Chi moved away, and hopped onto a rock nearby. She sat down cross-legged and watched them as the rat spoke to her, asking her reason for being here. The heartless just shrugged, leaning back and looking at the dark cavern ceiling.

"You can trust me, Chi is a good person." She grinned cheerfully, gripping her ankles with her bony hands. "I like you two. Mister, you're mean, but I suppose you're supposed to keep up this dark and creepy reputation since you run the creepy underworld and all. So I forgive you." She spoke, holding her hand out to him. Although she was here without any plans before, Chi believed that she found her new reason to be here. She wanted to be friends with Ror. She wanted to make this dark and serious guy smile, if only once. Now that the heartless had a goal, it was going to be nearly impossible to change her one track mind.

Ignoring her comment about his supposed inability to murder her, he focused on the fact she spoke in, what he assumed was, third person. For all he knew, she might have been referring to someone else, but considering the balance of probability, it was unlikely. She continued the discussion by stating how she actually liked the two. Rorschach's eyes narrowed in skepticism. Was this a mind game or a ploy of some sorts? Whatever it was, he was cut off by Regina, the rat, who more often than not was quicker on feet than the Undead was.

"Contrary to popular belief, he was an ass before he became the Underlord." She confirmed, not wanting the woman to believe he did this for the sake of his reputation, or that of the Underworld. The Lich was just typically this unbearable to be around. Immediately, this antagonized Rorschach, causing him to reply.

"Wow, you're right, Chi. You are trustworthy." He said, mocking enlightenment, using this opportunity to grab the rodent and toss her in the air, so that the woman before her could catch her. "Y'know, you can keep her too. Finding an assistant shouldn't be too hard, I'll just set up a couple mousetraps in Olympus."

"You're an ass, Rorschach." Regina replied, as she was thrown into the air. If the woman didn't catch her, should at least be able to land on Chi's shoulder to prevent hitting the floor. The rodent wouldn't stay on her, as that would be rude and unsafe, but she pondered the possibility. It seemed safer than how the Underlord was treating her.

"So, Chi, I love the living as much as the next necromancer, but what're you doing here?" He questioned, finally buckling down a little bit. He had his fun and didn't want to drag on the encounter for too long. The only reason to enter the Underworld was when someone wanted to drag someone out. There were hardly any passive adventurers or archeologists.

Surprisingly, the rat was first to speak up to Chi, which made her laugh quite a bit. While she was laughing, Rorschach retorted and tossed the rat into the air to Chi. The heartless outstretched her arms to catch her and used a small amount of wind magic to slow the creature's fall before it landed gently in her palms. The female smiled at the rat and held her delicately, like she were fragile flowers in her hands. Chi's eyes switched to Ror as the creature yelled at him from her palms.

"She's your friend first, Rors- Roras...Chi is just going to call you Rorey." Chi finalized, triumphantly. "You should take care of her. Friends are hard to find." She admitted, listening to Rorschach's question. Her hands dropped softly to her lap, allowing the rat to leave if she desired. Chi thought about the question for a moment, looking around the dark caverns with softened eyes. She wasn't as bubbly as before.

"Most people don't like Chi around. They act like something is wrong with Chi. You are the first two in a very long time to not be afraid. Chi is here because she is just wandering around. This world didn't seem bad because there aren't any mean people to run from Chi." She paused for a moment, her smile fading. "Do you think Chi is scary?" She looked up to him, small tears welling up in her eyes. She quickly rubbed them away with her shoulders, before placing a small smile on her face.

As Regina was caught, both users noticed her ability to manipulate wind. Interesting, considering how passively she used it amongst strangers. Then again, her comment about friendship was an indication of her social life. She seemed to be the type with very little companionship, which would make her journey to The Underworld all the more justified. When you are rejected by the living, death's undiscriminated acceptance is a sweet relief. As the rodent hesitantly returned to the warlock, she seemed to elaborate on her situation, despite neither of the two prying into her social life.

Great. A cry for help. He thought to himself, not caring about any sob story or tragic background she might have. As she asked for confirmation, he would reply, "When I think of you, 'scary' is not the first word to pop into my head." He consoled, using his bitter nature to at least confirm that he didn't fear her. It would be a small emotional bid, but he was mainly trying to clarify that there were far better descriptors, such as annoying.

"Rorschach!" Regina scolded, instinctually, annoyed with his behavior. Did he really not have any self control or empathy for others? Maybe that's why he was given the position of the Underlord. Rolling his eyes, exasperated, he continued, "So, briefly, you mentioned my inability to kill you. Where do Heartless go when they die?" He admittedly knew a bit about the Heartless, but never really had the opportunity to speak to one. And considering he was being emotionally blackmailed by Regina, he might as well do something interesting while he was here.

This is what he got for being ambitious.

The words from Rorschach made her smile, and she sniffed lightly. Chi hopped up onto her feet and dusted off her dress, her happiness revitalized. She moved back to in front of him, and nodded to him lightly.

"Chi is happy. Thank you." She told him, brushing her hair away from her face. In truth, he was the first one since she became a heartless to speak so much as a casual word to her. Although she was created of darkness, it wasn't uncommon for a heartless to feel some sort of emotions, especially a pseudo one. Chi herself was not fully aware of what she was, just the fact that she cannot die as easily as she thought. He asked her a question, knowing she was what he called a heartless. Chi tilted her head at the name.

"What is a heartless? Is Chi a heart-less-thing?" She asked him, a puzzled expression plastered onto her face. "Chi can show you where she goes when she gets hurt..?" Chi suggested, shrugging her shoulders. She was confused by his words. She heard of heartless before, but no one had ever accused her being one.

"Happy, but still alive, so..." He continued, implying the inherit dilemma he had with the creature inhabiting this space. He didn't actually care, but she seemed to be getting a bit too clingy. And while the resource would be useful someday, it wasn't pertinent to his current concerns.

As she continued to express her ignorance to her own species, Rorschach was quickly losing patience, but found an opportunity to no longer have to deal with the nuisance. Fortunately, Regina wasn't a telepath, so she could not predict the following course of action. In fact, she didn't know there was a course of action to follow.

"Y'know, Chi, that's a good idea. Let's go." The Lich said, opening a corridor of darkness for her to go through. "Lead the way." He continued, politely allowing her to escort the two into her supposed home. Rorschach had mixed feelings about the Realm of Darkness, he felt it a domain he rightfully deserved, as he already was a passenger of the immortal circle. He'd make the much needed visit soon enough.

Chi cast a sideways glance at his remark before scoffing lightly, understanding his remark. Although she was a bit naive, she wasn't stupid. Ever since her memory loss, there wasn't exactly a guide to tell her everything that was going on or why she has these weird powers. The fact that Chi developed such a personality in the first place exposed that something went wrong early in life for her human form, and she could not lose grip of her childish quirks. It was something that kept her alive, even though the life she now possessed was a dark and lonely road for someone who lost everything.

"Chi will show you on one condition, Rorey." She crossed her arms and turned away slightly, eyeing the portal he created. "You have to promise Chi to be friends." She muttered, her expression much more serious this time. "And, you can explain to Chi what a heart...less is. Deal? She finished, scrutinizing his face carefully.

"Yeah, whatever." He answered, placing his index and thumb on the bridge of his nose, the nail of his right middle finger lightly grazing the tip. His response peaked Regina's interest, but not enough for her to vocalize any concerns or comments. She was more curious than anything, as indicated by her posture and quizzical look. Returning to her natural position on the warlock's shoulder, he continued. "Now, as I was saying..." He motioned to the portal, showing his impatience.

He never had much experience with living women, but they didn't seem to be worth the countless wars that were fought over them. They were all annoying, or needy, or overly attached. Hopefully, this trend wouldn't keep up during his reign. It's not like he's met any impressive specimen from his gender either. After all, they were the ones who continuously started wars over false proclamations...

However, he was content in being an outlier.

She clapped her hands once, a bright expression on her face. Hopping once towards him, she nodded to him, evidently happy by his promise. The heartless girl ran her hands through her hair before turning to look at the portal, very similar to the own she creates. It surprised her slightly, and she walked around it once before looking back to him with a quizzical look on her face.

"I've never seen someone else use this before. I guess there are lots of people out there who can travel to different places like me. Have you been to other worlds besides this one too?" She asked, heading back to him. With a small smile, she gripped his wrist and gently pulled him to the portal, and then stepping through it with her bare toes first. The portal lead to the corridor, a dark in-between that connected all the worlds for the heartless and others that used the darkness, but were garbed in special gear to protect them from the corruption it caused. Chi gave him a sideways glance, unsure of whether he wore such a thing, or if he was just immune to the effects.

"Does this place harm you?" The heartless girl questioned innocently as she traversed the shadowy place quickly, the darkness licking at her pale skin. She pulled him along, up until they arrived at the entrance to the Realm of Darkness. She sighed lightly, before looking up to him, somewhat nervous. The darkness around them crept closer as it shifted and swirled in this void of a place.

As Chi expressed her gratitude, she asked about his experiences outside of the world. And, admittedly, he was sorely lacking. Most of his knowledge was derived from his studies in the Underworld, as he often felt travel would be a hindrance to his academic endeavors, however, now that he had long passed those trials, he could afford the luxury of travel.

As she immediately grabbed his wrist, in an attempt to drag him along, his eyes narrowed. Damn, Heartless. He thought, aggravated that she seemed to be more emotionally keen than she let on. Her air-headed nature was a ploy used to get what she wanted. The Warlock was only the most recent victim.

Unfortunately for her, he was adamant about not leaving. Creating a ghostly appending, which stemmed from his bicep, he ripped off his forearm as she stepped into the portal, causing her to drag his appendage through, the portal disintegrating into sand, slowly swirling away. By the time she would notice, and speak to him in The Realm of Darkness, she would, literally, be talking to the hand. Rorschach was fluid in 90's sass.

"You do realize, she's just going to come back?" Regina questioned, unsure of his decisions.

"Yeah, but Future!Rorschach will have the patience to deal with her." He replied, watching his missing appendage regrow.

"You're an idiot." She finished, frustrated with him again. Now she'd have to deal with more annoying interactions. Not from the Heartless, but from The Lich himself. Wonderful.

[LOL WTF]

When Chi went to glance up at him, she realized that the hand melted into sand, and then there was nothing left of him. Panicked, Chi began running around the Corridor, thinking he got lost somewhere in there.

"Roreyyy!!! Where are you!?" She shouted, her feet quickly covering the distance that she had just previously trekked holding an undead hand. A sick feeling came over her as she thought he got captured by the monsters in the Corridor, or that he was....more dead.

"What if I killed him? Chi isn't a murderer!" The girl yelped, gripping her hair in her fingers as she continued searching for the one who tricked her.
