KWR: Mecha King Ghi-Darah by Blabyloo229 KWR: Mecha King Ghi-Darah by Blabyloo229
   Qu’Tashi stepped back, visibly shaken. His horns curled into a snarl. “How could they have known?!”

Shoji and Tame stared at the fleet in stunned silence. Shoji had heard so much about the Empire, what they had done to the Ganshii and Human races. Now they claimed to come as saviors instead of conquerors. He craned his neck to see if any of the ships were turning towards him, but they passed by harmlessly.

Tame rested her hand on Shoji’s shoulder and said soothingly, “Don’t get your hopes up Shoji, they can’t see us. The Kiliaak have never been able to match our stealth technology. You’ll be our guest for some time now.”

“Never mind that,” Qu’Tashi stepped up to the window. “Osthelek is more than capable of wiping them out.” The glow from his arms brightened, and he cried, “Osthelek, kill the Guardians quickly, and then the Kiliaak!”
=====================
Osthelek reached out and took hold of Joseph and R’Ka as well. He started squeezing, and the hull of the Dispatcher buckled immediately. In his other hands, R’Ka and RagnRok struggled against his strength. The beast looked down at the Dispatcher, and stared directly at Yb through the camera. When he locked eyes with the boy, it seemed to hesitate.

Suddenly Osthelek was raked with golden gravity beams. His face twisted with pain, and he released the Dispatcher and turned slowly.

{Hang on Joseph Davis!} A familiar three headed dragon flew down from the Kiliaak fleet, blasting gravity beams from each of his three heads. {The cavalry is here!}

Ghi-Darah was coated in shining silver and purple armor, and fitted with sleek, advanced cybernetics. Joseph remembered the Ghi-Darah he had known, hunched over, shackled by cruel implants, like a slave, but this Ghi-Darah was a King.
=============================
Qu’Tashi laughed, “Look at him, his beams aren’t even scratching Osthelek! The Kiliaak have no idea how powerful Osthelek is!”

Jorath Kla held his fist up in front of his “mouth” and coughed awkwardly. [In this form.] he said quickly.

Qu’Tashi glanced over. “Explain yourself.”

[When a four dimensional being like Osthelek and I come into contact with the third dimension, it rejects us. The more that’s exposed, the more it fights to push us back out. Why do you think I never travel anywhere? It takes almost all of my concentration to keep my physical form anchored and hidden.] he waved down at his body, [Hence the handsome apparition you see before you.]

“What does that have to do with Osthelek? You told me he’d be able to hold himself at 15%.”

[For the purpose of your plan. I didn’t say he could stay that big for long. We’ll need to revert him soon, or this dimension will force him out.]

Qu’Tashi was silent, and then with a roar he thrust his arm into Jorath Kla’s chest.

Jorath looked down at the arm that floated harmlessly in his chest. [Only a bump in the road, my lord.] he gingerly reached down, and pulled Qu’Tashi’s arm from his torso. [Besides, I’ve confirmed that our primary goal was accomplished.]

Qu’Tashi sighed. “Good. The Kiliaak cannot stop what is coming. Come, sound the retreat, let them think they’ve won for now.” He turned away from the window, and walked out through the door. “We move to secure Tel-Aora now. Tell our fleets to come out of hiding, this war will no longer be fought in the shadows.”
=======================
Osthelek vanished, leaving the crippled guardians floating in space. The traitor vessels from the Sol and Tel-Aoran fleets all turned and warped out of the system.

Ghi-Darah flew over to R’Ka and Joseph, and called out, {Kraken, they’re alive! Get my ship down here!}

Kraken’s voice crackled through, {That’s good news. Empress, with your permission, I’ll be taking the remainder of the fleet to pursue the Hand and liberate Leviathan.}

A cold, female voice emanated from Ghi-Darah’s mechanical head. {Very well, Warlord. Victory follows you. I will pass your regards to your friends.}

{As it does you, Empress.} Kraken’s comms fizzled out, and the Kiliaak fleet shimmered red, and teleported away.
=============================================
Commander Tark called out over the ship alarms, [Is everyone alright?]

Kira picked herself up off of the floor. [I am alright Sir.] She groaned and clutched at her side, [I believe I may require medical attention.]

Yb moaned in pain from the floor.

[Yb!] Kira rushed over and helped him up. [Are you alright?]

He opened his mouth to answer, but no words came out. He was looking at something over her shoulder, and his eyes were wide with fear. Kira realized that no one else on deck was speaking, and she slowly turned around.

Framed in the window, was a massive cybernetic eye.

{Soldiers of the Sol Alliance,} A cool, female voice crackled through the ships communications, {We are not your enemy, and we are here to help you.}

[The Kiliaak.] Kira said icily. [We cannot trust them!]

The eye pulled back, revealing Ghi-Darah’s face. He laughed, {Short memory, this one, she seems to have forgotten that we just saved her life.} He looked right at Kira, {She doesn’t like us, or at least, who she thinks we are.}
Commander Tark looked at Kira angrily. [Kira Takala, not a word from you!] He looked back at Ghi-Darah and said, [Whomever I am speaking to, thank you for the timely rescue.] He looked over at Kira, his eyes narrowed in warning. [We were in dire trouble before you arrived.]

Kira’s hood flared angrily, but the Commander waved for her to stay silent. [To whom am I speaking too?]

{In good time, Commander Tark, I prefer to introduce myself in person.}

Ghi-Darah never looked away from Kira. {Thank you for keeping Kira Takala from embarrassing herself.}  He growled, {We have not spent the last thousand years fighting the Old Empire and The Hand of Ra’Kash-Ter’Agah to be treated like criminals.}

{Peace, my old friend.} The voice spoke again, {They don’t know our history, and we can edjucate them after we've helped them. Engage the tractor beam, bring in the damaged ships and save any crew still alive. Have medical personnel on standby for the wounded, and make sure our experts are ready for Joseph Davis and R’Ka.}

The Kiliaak ship moved into view, and began pulling the crippled vessels in towards it. Ghi-Darah’s head pulled back, and a mechanical one took its place. {As for us, take us in with the Dispatcher. It is time we introduced ourselves.}

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Believe it or not, I started this picture almost a year ago.  It was inked and colored in my sketchbook, and I loved it so much that I decided to remake it digitally so you all could see it too. A lot of people were wondering whether Ghi-Darah was with the Kiliaak, and here he is! Looking proud and regal again, unlike the last time we saw him.  Also, he actually has 3 heads now! The identity of the third head will make herself known in the next chapter.  Stay tuned!

I love it! Just look at his right head. It looks like it's thinking "Why are we doing this again? Can't we just go back to rolling in sand dunes?"

Also, I'm starting to believe that Kraken was in charge when the Kilaak made contact with the Kayl. It makes sense. They made contact 500 years after Apocalypse, with much more peaceful intentions!

The ones who should wear  armor casings are the left and right heads, since those heads are mostly used for combat, while the middle head should just wear a controlling helmet.Like how you give the left head the mechanical enhancement here

How old is Ghi-Darah?

Pretty darn old, to be honest. Kaiju tend to live very long lives, but Ghi-Darah is in the twilight of that life. he's at least 1200 years old, and without the mecha suit he's actually pretty feeble and weak.

I honestly expected him to be older.
So, he was a young adult when the Kiliaak invaded Earth In Kaiju Wars?

Seems like a sound idea.  That character's name is Kath-En, btw.  She was also briefly present in the "Shadows of Vin-Tahng" miniseries.

" but this Ghi-Darah was a King." That's what I've been waiting to see Ghi-Darah to become from the first time I read KW. I just love this, even his name is a trip Back to a glory of the bygone days of him having a left head. It'd be very interesting to see Ghi-Darah with all three of his original heads someday, but for now this is FAR more interesting! Even the nice touch of having his mechanical head be a separate being is just a marvel to read and have him interact with!

Glad you like it! Unfortunately, I can confirm that Ghi-Darah won't ever have his 3rd head back. It's been a thousand years, it would have grown back by now if it could.  As for the pilot of the mechanical head, she's one of my favorite characters, so I'm looking forward to revealing her as well.

Anytime! And I was actually talking about something depicting Ghi-Darah in his prime thousands of years ago! A full fledged King of Terror of old, that's something we've never seen in KW, just suggested! But, THIS is something I really like, especially the blue eyes, which iImight add is rare among Ghidorah interoperations, or you might be the only one!

Indeed! That's something that we've never seen before in KW! Maybe I'm just saying it because I love Ghi-Darah(or more widely known as King Ghidorah) with a passion!

Now, that's some pretty fine detail you've got there. And it's creative that while he know fully resembles the traditional MKG, it has a uniqueness to it. Especially with the mechanical head being the third head. That's a pretty nice touch. And though i see he's not quite as insane as he used to be, he's still not completely the best to work with. But i kinda expected that, since it's his nature.;) Though i really can't wait to see what Warlord Kraken looks like in a FB shot. He's probably gonna be awesome.:D

XD Okay: the fact that he is a not-so-evil villain who became a hero, the fact that even though he was a mentally unstable destroyer, he still cared for others, especially his father, no matter how much he was used for bad he still let the part of him that was Leviathan win out, and save both his dads from Apocalypse, no matter how badly Kronos treated him he still loved him as his father, he was truly remorseful and willing to live up to his rightful punishment, only so he could have the Davis' forgive him in the end. He's gentle, kind, and considerate while also being fierce, strong, and determined. He really does care for others, and will fight to the death to keep them safe. And the fact he was willing to fight in a....century, i think, long battle to topple, and rebuild the Kiliaak empire shows just how determined, and faithful he is. So, if anything, he's as every bit likeable a character to me as Leviathan, and Kronos.:D

Actually, the revolution that Kraken led was nearly a millenia, not a century.  Just a hair under a thousand years.  But yes, Kraken is certainly one of my favorite characters as well, and I'm glad you like him :)

Ah, right. I just forgot how long ago it was. But i knew it took so many ears to accomplish, he's probably aged up quite alot. Either way, he really is something special. That we can both agree on.:)

so, is he different from Mecha King Ghidorah? Because it looks like you misplace the robotic head on the side instead of the middle.

My KWR story is based loosely on toho canon, but the characters have been changed significantly over the course of the story. This is not King Ghidorah that you see in Toho movies, this is a different character all together.  Since Ghi-Darah had his left head torn off in the beginning of Kaiju Wars, the mechanical head is on the left.
