The first time the sensors began detecting life forms, he was vaguely curious but assumed it was a false reading, either from faulty equipment or magnetic interference. None of the cameras on the mining drones were picking up anything visible in the belt other than asteroids, other drones and his own command ship, never mind anything that could be interpreted as a life form. The belt had been peaceful and extremely profitable. Until the night they had been hit by a lightning storm that manifested from, as far as the sensors could make out, absolutely nowhere, followed swiftly by a swarm of grotesque monstrosities that resembled no life form that had ever existed on Motavia.

-Some resembled giant floating stone statues, shaped like pairs of vaguely humanoid heads that were fused together, others less corporeal, the sensors registering massive levels of technique energy whenever they appeared. Others appeared only briefly in the Universe, only their leathery black skin and pinpoint glowing eyes visible, before disappearing, travelling instantaneously using tiny wormholes, to appear somewhere else and drag one of his drones into the void with a single gigantic clawed tentacle. At the head of the army was another apparition – a hologram, probably generated using some kind of technique rather than an ordinary mechanical communications device, Podhead-351 realised. Vaguely resembling a tall, extremely elderly male Palman in appearance, he wore heavy golden armour and a style of crimson robes that the Command Unit vaguely remembered seeing in a thousand year old historical record. The hologram, as expected, did not register as a life form, but neither did the origin point, the sender, once the signal had been intercepted and traced back.+Some resembled giant floating stone statues, shaped like pairs of vaguely humanoid heads that were fused together, others less corporeal, the sensors registering massive levels of technique energy whenever they appeared.

Pointing the technique-enhancing rod he carried at the Podhead's display unit in a threatening gesture, he announced in a wizened, arrogant voice, "How dare you disturb the eternal domain of King Lashiec with your infernal racket! Begone this instant or know the true extent of my wrath!"
