Telos Episode One
Telos is an orphan who lived in many foster homes, until one day he decided to run away.
He lived on the streets, he made some friends, lived under bridges, slept in parks on benches, survived doing petty crimes. And, on a cold winter's night, he died frozen on a bench.
Well, that took a wrong turn for the worse pretty quick. It's a story of a boy grim-reaper - what did you expect?
Death saw something in the boy, and he decided to make him an apprentice. He assigned Ursos as his mentor.
Telos Episode Two
Letting the cat out of the box
Telos woke up to the noise of heavy footsteps, but he couldn't see anything in the pitch black, he started to panic and tried to move and realised he was in a box and barely had any space to move. All of a sudden, a heavy grunt a loud sound and light-flooded his eyesight.
A giant claw was coming at him, so he obviously freaked out, and then he heard a loud growly but oddly soothing voice.
Growly soothing voice: Grab my hand young one.
Telos Episode Three
Use the Straps
He stood up, looked at the big guy, looked around, thousands of inquiries were going through his mind, most of the questions started with where and who!! and followed by some profanity.
Growly soothing voice: Pick up your coffin, Deus Mortis is waiting for you Telos.
The boy: Telos? who the hell is Telos, am I Telos?
He looked around, and he saw a coffin with the lid open.
Without freaking out, he closed the lid and tried to carry it, but no matter what and how he couldn't manage to lift it, he did manage to drag and push it for a couple of steps.
Telos Episode Four
The prominent figure just looked at him and didn't say anything.
He grabbed one of the straps and took a step closer and crouched next to the coffin, the strap ornaments were yanked out of his hands, and they attached to one end of the coffin, he turned to the other side and did the same.
He took a deep breath anticipating to lift the heavy coffin, but he put so much momentum into it that when he stood up, he fell flat on his face and the coffin descended on top of him.
Telos Episode Five
Dude, I have always wanted a pair of dunks, I almost robbed a guy for a pair once, almost got sent to Juvie... And, these dunks are brand new… poor fella, he didn't even get the chance to enjoy them. Oh well, finders keepers.
Ursos (In the background): That's nasty! Stop taking people's shit, it's weird. Why don't you go and pick up gear from the pit, like the rest of us?
Telos: UGH! The pit?! Have you seen the amount of crap that ends in there? And I used to think that the trash island the size of Texas in the middle of the ocean was awful! Anyhow, by the time you get there when new stuff arrives, the cool stuff is gone. I don't understand what's the big deal; is not as if this guy needs them.
Telos Episode Six
Telos was out on a pickup mission. Ursos came along as it would be the last job they will be doing together. Telos was going to become a reaper after this job.
The pickup was nothing out of the ordinary, just your regular human dying in his sleep.
Telos and Ursos walked into the bedroom, waited for the dude to breathe his last breath. Took out the machete from his coffin and tore the guy's chest open, then dug in deep to pull out his soul, grabbed a jar and placed the soul into it.
Telos episode seven
Something snapped inside
Ursos was looking out the window as he was very impressed with how Telos has pulled this job. But when he turned to give Telos a rare compliment, the vessel was on the floor next to the body.
Telos was walking toward the room next door.
Telos opened the door, and inside he found a man torturing a little boy, kicking him and stomping on him, the boy was screaming and crying and pleading with him to stop. The man picked up his cigar and put it out on the little boy's back, the boy started screaming in horror.
Telos opened his coffin, took out all the jars and threw them at the guy, at that moment, he could hear Ursos screaming behind him: "NOOOOO!"
Telos Episode 8
His own throat
It was too late, he had already splattered the guy from head to toe.
The guy froze there, looked around the room, walked up to a table in the corner of the room picked up a knife and slit his own throat, then collapsed on his knees and bent backwards.
Telos picked up his machete and did the job again, this time he made sure to put the jar in his coffin, walked back into the previous room, picked up the last vessel and walked outside.
Telos episode 9
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!
Ursos was screaming and explaining that he was not supposed to do that: "We can not interfere, we are only here to pick up souls and not to kill humans."
Ursos: Oh, boy, this is terrible, really bad!! Deus Mortis will send Lykos after you. Telos, are you listening? LYKOS!! Do you have any idea what have you done?
But Telos could barely hear what he was saying. He didn't care, something snapped inside, and there is no more turning back.
