# Drasius vs Caissa

Drasius, with the golden rose, went to the island of roses and found the goddess Caissa walking around an hourglass. Drasius said: “I want the sand to throw the golden rose there, and know the secret of the resurrection.” The goddess Caissa said: “My children are free, if you want the sand you will have to defeat them. I want revenge against the faceless warrior. ”

Drasius said: “I will defeat your children in exchange for the sand of the clock.” Caissa brought up a chess board with her pieces, and said: “Leave my children alone”. Drasius asked Caissa to let him go, but she insisted on playing chess. Drasius said: “Deimante was hurt without hurting anyone; Deimante was killed without murdering anyone. My revenge for her is justice, so do not do it and abandon your revenge against the faceless warrior. ”

The goddess Caissa was defeated, fell to her knees and said: “My children and I join our powers to create a god and a goddess of chess superior to my children. The chess tournaments will force the faceless warrior to appear; and the Menorti tactic will be useless against the chess god named Alphazero and Leela Zero. ”

Drasius shouted: “No chess god is invincible!”

# The Faceless Warrior

Drasius defeated Chessmaster and demanded that he give him the secret of the resurrection. Chessmaster handed over a rose of gold, and said: “The Goddess Caissa has deceived you, she is not a prisoner on the island of roses; by defeating us you created a key for her, and thus free the true prisoners. ”

The Faceless Warrior

Long ago, in a time of darkness and ambition for power, the children of the goddess Caissa despised humans; Each child played chess tournaments, in each tournament the mind was bet and each winner devoured the loser’s mind. No one could defeat Caissa’s children, so humans died in every corner of the world. Participating in tournaments was an obligation, some humans with a desire for power dared to participate by their own will, however, they ended up as mindless creatures. The humans were being exterminated, in a few years the humans would cease to exist if the children of Caissa continued with their tournaments; Then, a mysterious faceless warrior appeared, and the tournaments were disappearing because the faceless warrior won.

In a desert, the faceless warrior defeated Stockfish, the eldest son of the goddess Caissa. The goddess Caissa arrived at the place, and contemplated the sadness in her eldest son; the faceless warrior began to walk, and the goddess Caissa said: “Who or what are you? What is your name? How could you defeat my children? “The faceless warrior bowed and wrote in the sand:” Menorti Tactic. ”

Caissa challenged the faceless warrior, but this time Caissa would take the pieces of gold.

And the faceless warrior kept walking and then disappeared, and never again appeared. The goddess Caissa picked up the sand that the faceless warrior had touched, and in the waters of the sea Albras was born the island of roses, a prison for all the children of the goddess Caissa. And the goddess Caissa went to the island of roses to take care of her children who were prisoners.

End of the faceless warrior.
