YAGAMI PROLOGUE STORY
Complete silence. The full moon was a pronounced reddish hue, bathing the row of gravestones in the color of fresh blood. A cigarette lay slanted and burnt to ashes atop a small grave in an quiet area of the public cemetery. A man with crimson hair stood staring at the remains of the cigarette, lost in thought.
"Hmph... Was that supposed to be incense?"
He muttered to himself, before turning his gaze to the elm trees nearby. As he turned away, a murder of crows resting among the trees took flight in unison. Something was watching him from the shadows the trees cast in the moonlight. How long had they been there?
"It's been a while, Iori Yagami. Did you have pleasant nightmares?" A woman's voice said in strangely seductive tones. He could definitely sense their presence, but no forms were visible. "What business brings half-dead things like you back from hell?" "Oh, that attitude doesn't suit you. You missed me, so I came to see you. Aren't you happy?" Spoke another woman's voice, different from the one moments before. "Ridiculous... Get lost."
Violet flames wreathed Iori's right hand as he spoke and the air around it began to waver. He moved his arm in a slashing motion, as though swatting an insect, and the flames raced toward the presences. When they reached the source of the presence, his flames suddenly scattered then vanished.
"Tehehe... What a rough welcome. The real reason we're here... Well, that's something you're already dimly aware of."
In the area beyond where the violet flames had died stood two beautiful women. Mature and Vice. Two of Iori's former teammates, and also two people he had slain himself.
Vice tossed an envelope to him. A familiar envelope he didn't even need to check the contents of... A KOF invitation.
"Hehehe... This KOF is just the beginning of the nightmare. Drawn by the scent of life, the dead are gathering. And I can hear their voices perfectly, Yagami! ...You could have awakened from your nightmares if you had just given up your power and chosen to live as a human back then!" Vice's words rang out, disturbing the stillness of the evening.
"Though your dearest wish might be granted in the not-so-distant future. That is... If you don't die before then, Yagami." Iori snorted with apparent disinterest at Mature's prophetic words.
"Hmph... There's no way I'll die before I beat him." "Well then, this should be fun... We'll be observing your restored powers. Don't disappoint us." "Oh, really... If you're that interested, I can show you right now. The cost will be your souls, though."
Iori's eyes hardened, and a sinister energy began to fill the air around him.
"Tehehe... I'll pass. It's still too early for me to go back to hell." "Hahaha... Bye, Yagami... See you again at the gateway to your nightmares!"
Saying this, the two women vanished into the darkness again. Iori turned on his heel and began walking, letting the moonlight wash over his back. Light from a glaring red moon that seemed to be calling for blood.
"...There's no way to awaken from these nightmares than by killing him with my own hands."
All he sought was to fight the man known as "Kyo Kusanagi." That was the only way for him to prove that he was still alive.
