You will NEVER see them this merry. Ever. Not in your life. Not in others'. Not in your children' get the point.
"When bloody portals began to open in the sky, and the twisted figures began to stumble out, it was a sign to all that things were about to change. A world consumed by fire, by madness. And its sole hope lies with those who answer the call... An original character tournament different from any other; laden with horror, deception, a role for those who lose their rounds, and at the end, a chance for the winner to gain additional glory... at the risk of destroying everything they have worked for."

Firewind is an Original Character Tournament, run on the art website Deviantart. It is currently at its semifinal round. In it, portals start appearing in the entrants' different worlds, leading them into a barren, deserted landscape. Some of the entrants enter of their own will after seeing a maimed and butchered dying person come out of a portal and listening to the message recorded in a green cylinder he or she was carrying through. But of course, it's all a trap.

Not to be confused with the Greek metal band of the same name.

    Round 1 Summary 
  • Shawn & Hayden v. Bikuta & Dawn. Winner: Bikuta & Dawn.
    Shawn and Bikuta get a feeling both for one another and the new landscape, but in the end Legion interrupts what might have been an alliance, capturing Shawn and leaving Bikuta and Dawn in charge of Shawn's ghostly comrade, Hayden.

  • Slick v. Troy "Hunter". Winner: Hunter.
    Believing Hunter to be one of the infected, Slick attacks Hunter immediately upon making that accusation. From this Hunter realizes that the whole story of the infection was a lie, leading him to join up with Slick to go in search of answers after he defeats him in battle.

  • Mira v. Cyl. Winner: Cyl.
    After Mira finishes off a monster that had been dead set on mauling Cyl, Drake appears, impatiently informing the two of the truth behind the tournament before making his exit. Cyl forms an alliance with Mira after hearing of this, and the two set out to seek a way home.

  • Diavolvo & Skyler v. Elfi. Winner: Both sides.
    After Skyler and Diavolvo encounter the high-spirited Elfi, it doesn't take long for the three to decide to form a group, despite some initial reluctance on Skyler's part.

  • Seth v. Corruption. Winner: Corruption.
    No sooner did an unfortunate Seth stumble upon Corruption than a literal firefight broke out between the two, and as neither were affected by the flames, it wasn't until Seth took a violent crack to the head that the fight was finished. Unconcerned for his opponent's fate, Corruption departed, leaving an unconscious Seth behind to be collected by none other than Asmodeus himself.

  • Ozzy v. Alkarin & Jade. Winner: Alkarin & Jade.
    Mere minutes after awaking, Alkarin finds himself being questioned by Ozzy, who is in search of a way home. The interrogation swiftly turns violent, and even Jade's arrival isn't enough to deter the monster. Thankfully, a stampede of massive tortoise like creatures that had been blending in with the landscape drives Ozzy off, and the shield Alkarin uses to protect himself and Jade raises questions about his powers.

  • Seläh v. Zane. Winner: Zane.
    Mistaking Zane for a reanimated monster, Seläh is quick to attack, but her apparent victory quickly turns for the worse when Zane proves to still be capable of fighting. However, this standoff is shortly disrupted when a giant aquatic beast knocks Seläh into the nearby pond, and despite the fact that they had just been fighting one another, Zane steps in and saves her from either becoming monster food or drowning.

  • Lawrence v. Clemency. Winner: Lawrence.
    Lawrence had been cornered by a flock of patchwork monsters only to be saved by Clemency, who grew rapidly suspicious of the other after he addressed him by his real name, Evan.

  • Shun & Minako v. Gin & Melvin. Winner: Gin & Melvin.
    Staked out in an abandoned house to keep guard for infected, Gin and Melvin trust the message's lie all too completely, launching a brutal assault that soon leaves Shun dead. Gin prepares to murder Minako as well, but Melvin intervenes, leaving the girl to grieve her loss and the two to decide their next move.

  • Skeiphes v. Oharue. Winner: Oharue.
    Oharue's journey in Amara starts out with an unpleasant encounter with a massive carnivorous plant, and things don't improve when she wanders into a nearby village Skeiphes is inhabiting. Interrupting his singing and then refusing to surrender leads to her having to fight off an army of Skeiphes's clones. Skeiphes then takes on the form of a giant bogeyman, only to be defeated once more and then promptly eaten by another plant monster, which he manages to possess. Oharue defeats him once again, however, and after doing so departs, leaving her opponent to slowly regenerate in her absence.

  • Chi & Blitz v. Lis. Winner: Chi & Blitz.
    Upon encountering one another, Lis' initial distrust in Chi leads to an agreement: the two will fight, and whoever is defeated will assist the other in their goals. The battle literally turns steamy due to the two's contrasting elemental types, but Chi has the upper hand in the end. However, the aftermath of the battle is marked by more violence, as Chi is promptly swallowed whole by a Barge, a gigantic water beast. Chi soon makes the monster regret this however, breaking free and causing massive creature damage in the process before rejoining with Lis and Blitz to eat and discuss future plans.

  • Fergus Farrell & Phena v. Kelv. Winner: Farrell & Phena.
    Tension rises quickly after Kelv encounters the duo, suspicions triggered due to coming from alternate universes leading Farrell to reach for his weapon, and resulting in Kelv shooting his hand. Farrell goes into shock, and while Phena manages to calm Kelv down, things only get worse as he steps on Phena's forcewhip when he moves forward to help her, leaving him unconscious. Phena manages to heal Farrell with advanced technology, and the two remain with Kelv until he awakens, but then the three decide to go separate ways.

With a little humor and distrust on both Jade and Skyler's parts, the group manages to get together and trudge on.
