The promised time has come. Now, go. Return to where you belong and bring an end to everything.

Shocked again she opened the gates of her tragic past
And bloody images came back to her mind
She remembered the old mission
The dark comet's goal beyond the suns
The flight through that black hole...
Tragedy storms him
When demons spare her life
And all discover
She has a demonheart...
— Luca Turilli, Demonheart
When her blood ran through the dark ice
The surface began to tremble
Quakes and thunders clashing everywhere
This is Zaephyr's tragic doomsday

If I find a naked girl in the middle of nowhere, I will kill her, right then and there. She is obviously the harbinger of destruction, and it will be easier to do it before I fall in love with her.
The moment that the girls closed eyes open, the world will bear witness to the worst kind of lunatic dream it can fantasize a cruel reaper[god]

"And while...[snip]...she often turns out to be some powerful goddess or angel, she almost never gets to use that power for herself. Instead, the villain kidnaps her, using her as a battery for some sort of nefarious plan, prompting the hero to rescue her yet again and take her back to a peaceful life in the village. Where's the heroism in that? Even when the lady becomes a goddess, she still can't save herself."
