Baldur walked over to the transformed ferrocious Nick. "You forget your place..."
He punched the beast in the face. "You made your oath!" He kneed him in the stomach. He grabbed Nick's arm with a powerful vice grip. "You chose Life over Death, remember dog?" He tightened his squeeze. "Remember who you are now! You are the opposite of nothing! You are of use to us! You are of use to me! Provide us with your services, and you shall be set free from your oath!"
He let go of his arm. "What say you? Help us fight against your kind, prevent innocent lives from falling!" Baldur's red eyes glew brightly through the darkness.
