Gray Ghost Week (May 3 - May 9)
Day 2: Fantasy/Lore AU
The Cycle restarts.
Phantom, I must tell you - warn you. There’s something you should know.
You fought the Ghost King, Pariah. Even at his strongest - wearing the Crown of Fire, and the Ring of Rage - you didn’t hesitate. You saved us all. For that, we thank you - but I’m afraid you went into that fight blind.
Pariah Dark was not always evil. Nor was he always King. The Ghost Zone’s royalty is chosen not by birthright, but by the artifacts they wield.
That’s right. The Crown of Fire chooses the King, not the other way around.
And the ring, you ask? Very perceptive of you. They were never meant to be worn together, the ring and the crown. Each has a mind of its own; Each chose a different person to bear them.
You see, The Crown of Fire was meant for Pariah.
The Ring was for his wife.
