With Siryn now following alongside him, Quintin leads the Silver Knights toward the island where the Temple of the Dragoon stands. A few small monsters have appeared on the island to guard it, rather than the shadow warriors of the Black Void.
Quintin looks confused. "Why would the Void Gate be guarded by monsters, rather than by shadows?" Quintin asks. "Perhaps our victory on the islands already drove them off?"
"I don't like the looks of this." Siryn says, a worried look on her face. "Something about this feels like a trap."
The monsters charge at Quintin and Siryn, but are quickly defeated by Quintin's sword slashes and Siryn's quick and graceful kicks. "Silver Knights, we'll need to fortify this position!"
The Silver Knights begin to set up base camp while Quintin and Siryn enter the temple grounds where the Void Gate was seen.
"How are you going to seal that thing up once we reach it?" Siryn asks.
"I am a champion of the forces of light. I can use the powers granted to me by the one who bestowed me that title to seal the gate." Quintin answers her. Siryn's eyes widen at his answer.
"You're the champion of the lord of light himself? Astonishing! I can see why Him retreated from you."
Quintin and Siryn approach the Void Gate, when one of the Silver Knights enters the temple. Quintin turns and addresses the knight. "Yes, what is it? Report."
"Sir Quintin, something strange has happened! No sooner did we finish establishing a base camp did several of our own knights go traitor and attack us!"
"Traitors?" Quintin is shocked by the sudden change of events. "First the Silver Knights fail to follow my orders, now they're turning against me? Some leader I turned out to be."
"Don't blame yourself Quintin. Something about this reeks of Him's doing." Siryn replies reassuringly. "We can still seal the Void Gate after we sort this all out."
"Right, back to the base camp!" Quintin and Siryn head out to where the Silver Knights have set up their base, seeing the knights fighting among themselves!
"I can't even tell the good guys from the bad!" Siryn says. "What can we even do?"
"I'm not sure. We won't know who the traitors are until one of them attacks us directly." Quintin replies. With his sword in a defensive position, Quintin slowly approaches the battling knights, when one of them turns and swings his sword at the hero! Quintin easily parries the blow and knocks out the turncoat with the hilt of his blade, which clangs against his helmet.
"Siryn, can you bring this one to its senses?"
"I can try, but if it is Him, my song might not work. I may still be able to get him to tell us which one of them is leading this betrayal." Siryn floats down to the turncoat knight and sings a soft melody to it. The traitor raises its hand and points at one of the Silver Knights engaged in battle with the others. "That's the leader of the traitors! If they are being controlled by Him, taking that one out should end the attack!"
Quintin wastes no time at all, charging right at the turncoat leader and running him through with his sword! A blast of evil energy erupts from the armor of the treacherous knight, revealing its true form as that of a demon! Once he has fallen, the other traitors either disappear in a cloud of pink smoke or return to their senses.
"Very good Siryn! I can see you have been improving since the last time..." Him's high pitch voice turning dark and loud. "...THE LAST TIME I TRIED TO DESTROY YOU AND BANSHEE! You are both such a DISAPPOINTMENT TO ME!"
"You were a terrible father!" Siryn shouts back angrily. "You didn't create us to be your loving daughters, you just wanted Powerpuff Girls under your control, and tried to get rid of us when you found out you couldn't make us evil!" Tears begin to form in Siryn's eyes as her body trembles with emotion. "If Bubbles hadn't come back for us..."
"...I would have succeeded in destroying of both of you." Him finishes her sentence calmly, but still in his evil voice. His voice changes back to its high pitched tone. "Oh well, I'll just have to settle with destroying you and the lord of light's chosen champion!" His voice changes again to the loud, evil voice. "ARISE, FROST WYVERN! CRUSH THE CHAMPION OF LIGHT!"
A massive hole bursts open right in front of the Void Gate as a massive dragon with a body made entirely out of ice emerges! The frost wyvern spots Quintin and immediately dives at him! Quintin lands a couple of strikes with his sword on the monster, but the sword seems to do only minor damage to the monster as it kicks him in the head, knocking him over!
The monster swoops up into the air before circling back for another attack, when it is kicked in its own head by Siryn! The white haired Powerpuff Girl tries to follow up her attack with another kick, but the frost wyvern catches her in its mouth and shakes her around a bit before throwing her to the ground! Siryn crashes into the ground in a streak of yellow light, leaving a small crater that is quickly bombarded by several large chunks of ice spit out by the frost wyvern!
Quintin is quick to get back to his feet, dodging another swooping attack from the monster. "It's icy scales are too thick for me to cut through with my sword! We'll need to attack it with something else."
"Sir Quintin, are you all right?" One of the Silver Knights approaches, seeing the frost wyvern high in the air attacking. "That large monster may be vulnerable to the cannons on our ship."
"Yes, fall back to the ship and open fire on this beast!" Quintin orders. The Silver Knight salutes and makes his way back to the ships they sailed to the Dragoon Isles. Dodging a large chunk of ice, Quintin also starts to retreat from the temple.
"Leaving so soon Quintin?" Him asks the Sorwin hero in his high pitched voice. "Weren't you going to seal the Void Gate?"
Quintin seems focused more on the frost wyvern than Him, dodging another of its swooping attacks and hitting it with his sword, only succeeding in chipping off some of the ice from its scales.
Him continues to taunt the hero. "Perhaps you should have brought an icepick instead of a sword?" He says with a shrug. His voice changes back to the loud, evil voice. "STOP PLAYING AROUND AND FINISH OFF THE SORWIN!"
The frost wyvern fires a huge chunk of ice from its mouth directly at Quintin, but a yellow streak of light flies out in front of the hero and catches the chunk of ice, throwing it back at the monster! A bruised and injured Siryn follows the chunk of ice as it hits the frost wyvern in the chest, delivering a drill like spinning double kick to one of its wings, spraying cold slush everywhere as she causes damage to it!
The frost wyvern gives out a loud shriek as it smack Siryn out of the air, but Quintin is quick to catch her as she falls. The monster targets them and prepares to fire another blast of ice, when a cannonball suddenly strikes the beast in the stomach, shattering off it's tail and legs! Him watches in anger as the Silver Knights prepare a second shot on the frost wyvern using the cannons onboard their ship.
"STAY OUT OF THIS!" Him shouts as he teleports onto the deck of the ship! This turns out to be a big mistake on his part, as several of the knights draw their silver edged swords and swing at Him, cutting the evil imp in several places! Him is quick to disappear in a cloud of pink smoke again, crying out in pain.
"I... HAAAAAAATE SILVER!" Him roars in his evil voice, appearing right in front of Quintin and Siryn. "I'LL JUST HAVE TO DESTROY THE TWO OF YOU MYSELF!"
Before any of them can start to attack, the injured frost wyvern is blasted out of the sky by the ship's cannon, causing the creature to explode into icy chunks that rain down on top of them! Siryn is the first to climb out of the melting chunks of ice, when a lobster claw grabs her! Him rises out of the ice, growing larger as his red skin turns darker, a sinister grin on his face as he looks at Siryn.
"NOW, I'LL CRUSH YOU IN MY CLAWS! YOUR END WILL BE AS SLOW AND AS PAINFUL AS POSSIBLE!"
"Not if I destroy you first!" Quintin is heard saying right behind his ear! Before Him can truly understand the situation, the hero drives his silver sword into Him's shoulder, forcing him to let go of Siryn as he jumps off his shoulder, dragging the blade of the sword down his back and leaving a large gash in its wake! Him collapses to the ground, shrinking down to his original size and whimpering in pain as Quintin turns and leaves, headed toward the Void Gate.
"Where are you going?" Him asks in his high pitched voice. "Why aren't you going to finish me off?"
"There's not enough time left! I have to seal the Void Gate now!" Quintin answers Him, approaching the Void Gate and holding out his hands. A golden light radiates from Quintin and shines onto the Void Gate as it starts to shrink and close.
"If I have to go away..." Him's high pitched voice changes again. "...I'M TAKING YOU WITH ME, SORWIN!" With his last ounce of power remaining, Him aims one of his claws at Quintin, preparing to fire a blast of energy at him, but Siryn flies down and stomps on his arm, causing his shot to miss just before kicking Him in the head! Him vanishes in another cloud of pink smoke, but this time he doesn't reappear.
"Are you all right Quintin?" Siryn asks, turning to see the hero has finished sealing the Void Gate.
Quintin smiles at Siryn. "I'm fine. Thank you for all your help. I don't know if I could have done it without you." Quintin winces a bit from where the frost wyvern had hit him. "I think we've earned a bit of time to rest and recover. I just hope the others are having an easier time than we did."
