Ring the bells of Bakkanal, the lost sheep will come home
Against the forces of hea’n and hell, the demon stands alone
With the power of angels and the saints; the lost sheep reclaims her throne

Years ago, under stormy night,
Seventy-seven souls lost from god’s all-sight
Wom’n of God, dressed in all-white
Sold them for power with~out contri~te

And rang the Bells of Bakkanal, her villagers heard and saw
But bribed and crooked was the law, the demon met death’s claw
All the king’s and all the queen’s men, couldn’t put Bakkanal back together again

Made her name on earth and sky,
Rumours ‘cross the Aardanian Night.
Bloody crown of cross and thorn,
Upon the altar she was lost and reborn
Heart of Steel and Tainted Cross
Bearing the burden of false peace’s cost

O’ring the bells of Bakkanal, the lost sheep HAS come home
Last of slain, vanished house, she banished Satan’s spouse
So, hark the herald, Archangels sing:
“Long Live the Para’priestess… Mercenary Queen…”

“From the Sands of Time, Unto the Fires of Hell…
From the Fires of Hell, Unto the Sands of Time…
I Shall Endeavour Unto Victory…”

I did this on a weekend as a joke/meme because CY’s 2nd pose really gave me an “MW2” Cover Art feel. CY resonated with what I was doing and decided to gift me with this literal FIRE remaster.

I did this on a weekend as a joke/meme because CY’s 2nd pose really gave me an MW2 Cover Art feel. Decided to have a go at it and learnt how to do some green screen on Davinci as well. Tons of fun.

Worth it.

CELESTIAL WARFARE 2 (Artist Spotlight: C_Yukimaru | Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Inspired | Part 1 out of 3)

“All who have served with me, laid down their SPEARS for a greater purpose…”

Throneless Trilogy, Minervai’El

Minervai’El, HIA Angelic Advisor, Purgatorian Armed Forces (The Strike Minerva ZERO Project by CY / Milkydromeda / @C_Yukimaru)

Author’s Commentary / End of the “Throneless Trilogy (Jan’22 thru May’22)”:

The direction of this project was to serve as the origin story of Minervai’El (undercover name: Minerva Marie-Sagan), the High Commander of the Hellion Intelligence Agency, during her time as “boots on the ground” as an Angelic Advisor, during the Human Rebellion For Independence of the Second-Generation of Mankind.

This artwork was a depiction before the Flood By Heaven and before she was throat-punched by the Archangel Raphael, where she walked amongst mankind, specifically, the followers of King Adam and Queen Eve who were against being administrated and ruled by the Angels of Heaven.

They are called “The Second-Generation of Mankind or 2G-Man”. For canonical purposes, we (our current time, are the Third Generation of Mankind or 3G-Man), and the HKSF Series takes place in the V-Era or the Fourth Generation of Mankind or 4G-Man.

As observed, Minervai’El utilizes the equipment and uniform of the Purgatorian Armed Forces (PAF) that is relatively advanced, while keeping a low profile, not presenting her black wings. A Spinal Device to reduce back injuries when bearing heavyweight equipment, and the SPEAR-22, which stands for:

  • Shield
  • Piercing
  • Enhanced
  • Airburst
  • Railgun
  • 22nd Century

The end of this “experimental story” is concluded in the previously written Outro of Minerva’s Stream, remastered by an anonymous singer, as “Throneless II”:

“An old soldier who is tired of war, but has not given up, where many have retired; and continues because she war is all she knows, but she longs to be free. Even then, her nation will not gift her her freedom so easily…”

v2.5 with piano and violin and “III” with bass line and drums are in the works for April and May, thus forming the “Throneless Trilogy” before moving on the the OP/ED for The Masked Parapriestess, aka HKSF Book-01.


Additionally, since Minerva’s Lore borrowed elements of a failed prequel, designated “Book-00A”, this project is designated “Book-00B” and solves much of the problems of the HKSF Novel Series’ old drafts being full of lore dumps and undeeded, deep-dive exposition. The “Zero” in this regard is also inspired by the themes of Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War’s Prequel, Ace Combat: Zero, The Belkan War.

Elements of this project are also linked to Strike Minerva I and Strike Minerva II

Re: Maybe I should have added “the Purgatorian War”… hmm…
