Exit Arbravita, Dante, and Virgil

Exit everyone else

The Lessons Commence

Scene III

Enter Arbravita, Virgil, and Dante.

Arbravita: Dante! In order to be able to become a ninja you must first understand the energy that you are controlling.

Dante: I don’t need you to teach me this, I already know.

Arbravita: Is that so? You do make a bold statement, but can you substitute it with bold actions?

Dante Smiles A Nods

Arbravita: So tell me then what is The Shakkazui?

Dante: I KNOW! It’s the power that the ninja use… it helps them fight and win battles. There is a good Shakkazui, and a bad Shakkazui.

Virgil: Well done young master.

Virgil bows and smiles at Dante

Virgil: But there is more to it than just that. The Shakkazui was the name given to the Anciantes. The power is the spirits of your ancestors and mine.

Dante: Spirits? Does that mean that my mommy and daddy are with me too?

Arbravita: In a way yes, but the Shakkazui is all of our ancestors. Or at least those that were able to wield the power, so only the ninja would be able to.

Dante: I see… mother and father weren’t ninja, they were despised by them. A ninja killed them.

Arbravita shows sympathy… and then anger.

Arbravita: Virgil! Get Horace here!

Virgill: Yes, Arb-

Arbravita: NOW!

Exit Virgil…. Re-enter Virgil followed by Horace.

Horace: You sent for me my queen?

Arbravita: Yes Horace, I want the name of the ninja that assassinated the parents of the Prince.

Horace: My queen? We do not ask for names of assassins-

Arbravita: Now!

Horace: Yes my queen, I do believe the assassin’s name was Sicario.

Arbravita: Bring him here.

Horace: Yes my queen

Arbravita: Virgil, go with him…

Exit Virgil and Horace… re-enter followed by Sicario.

Arbravita: ave atque vale… Sicario.

Sicario: Well biddings my queen.

Arbravita: You are an assassin, are you not?

Sicario: It is against the ninja code to reveal an assassin’s identity

Arbravita: Speak or die. Either way you lose. But perhaps I may choose to show mercy upon you if you fulfill my request

Sicario clenches his fists

Dante: Master? Arbravita? Please don’t cut his head off. He is the man that killed father and mother.

Sicario: YOU? I never thought I would see you again. Besides, who are you to be telling the queen what to do, and what do business do you have here!?!?!?!

    I see you love Greek literature and philosophy from the names of the characters. Good job.
