"Do you lo~" Cassiel was cut out by the conversation which was taking place between, Varmiel, Michael and Donatello. Though he didn't know if Auriel knew what he meant, he glanced at her while holding her hand. "I'll come back for that answer.." He said before facing Donatello.
"Oh shut your trap." Varmiel retorted as he sheathed his Starbreaker. "If you were with us down there, we may have won the battle!" He made a strong point as the Angels were silent, whilst true, Varmiel had a harsh manner to state things. "But no, you were sitting your butt off in this nice dancy pancy pallace." He crossed his arms.
"Indeed." Israfel agrees as he nods towards his fellow brother-in-arms.
Cassiel silently glanced down as Donatello clasped one of Cassiel's hands on his own. A daring move one might say, as a very selected few were allowed to touch Cassiel all of the sudden without his allowance, Donatello was certainly one of them. If not for his high status, but rather for their friendship, however, Cassiel let out a long sigh.
The Dark Archangel glared at Michael. "It is true, that The Council of Life views me as a blasphemer." He declared as he walked towards the middle of attention, doing so Cassiel's hand will be free of Donatello's. "However, you have been listening to this old man...whom you call The Grand Seraphim.." He pointed his hand at The Grand Seraphim. "You've been taught ever since from birth...that Xalnergy Manipulation is impossible...and that no one can master it, because they will fall for its corruption." He said.
"However, I've broken this law. Upon it, I've found enlightenment and freedom," Cassiel mentioned as he glared at everyone around him, while some of the Heavenly Kings listened to him. "When I first came to you and brought the idea of studying it, learning from it, trying to possibly understand it..." He glanced down.
"You called me a Mad Man...and a fool at that." His tone took a harsh tone. "But I've proven you all wrong...because, I alone, am the only Archangel in The Council of Life's History to have ever controlled Xalnergy and not fall for its corruption. However, a few of you, still are against it...Archangel Michael." He called out to him.
"You have enormous strength...but you are still blind even though, you have two eyes." He declared. "Which is why your strength is pitiful compared to mine." He brought his fist and clenched it into a fist.
"Because I am not afraid of the other side, like you all are!" He said, glancing at everyone. "I embrace it, and not try to control it. I try to become one with it, in perfect symphony. While you'll never be able to understand how I do it...but unlike you...or any other person in this room who believes I am a threat to The Council of Life." He said.
Cassiel glanced at Donatello. "I can pass down my teachings...only to my worthy successor...you want to know how I acquired this power, Donatello?" He asked, repeating Donatello's former question.
"Not long ago, I've found a book in the Infinite Library. It explained the properties of the Xalnergy and its reality-warping destructive, capabilities and abilities. However, very few know, that it can be so much more, than just a weapon of destruction." He said.
"I believe that it holds the key to a greater understanding of the Xir'algath and The Multiverse's Spectrum as a whole." He mentioned.
"Think Xalnergy as a living thing, with symbiotic properties. A user can bond with it on a cellular level. But it is compatible with very few beings, one must possess great physical strength, willpower, determination, patience...and the most challenging part of it. One must be deemed worthy of it." He said.
"I do not believe that I was destined to wield Xalnergy without its drawbacks. But how I truly learned how to become one with it, was when I found my inner peace. Where I understood that Order and Chaos, are in a relationship. For Order cannot leave without Chaos...and Chaos without Order. Life cannot be without Death and Death cannot be without Life." He explained.
"Simply put...one must be in the middle. One should not only withdraw his powers from the Good side. One must also channel the Destructive Forces of the Evil side." He said, glancing at Donatello.
"But it is a very dangerous task because one small mistake and you will be taken away. You have to let it pass through you, do not hold onto it, or it will destroy you." He mentioned. "Nevertheless, whilst you are a Great Leader Donatello...you are not worthy of it. Not now at least."
"It may come off as arrogant of me...but none of you are." He declared as he glanced at the Angels and Kings inside the room. "Because I have a greater understanding of it, while you, still see it as a threat. And because you dwell within the Light, you will never be able to achieve duality like mine."
