DBZ: The Fallen Empire

"It took only a year for Arcann's forces to crush the Empire and the Republic. Years of conflict between us saw to that."

"These so called 'Outlanders' think they fight for all of us. Rebellious children, thinking they can put a stop to the tyranny of Zakuul."

"Why can't they just accept the universe for what it is now? No one wants the freedom they seek, and they'll drag us with them into the mud when Arcann finally gets tired of their existence."

"We may suffer, but peace has finally come to our worlds. And if these rebels think their crusade is just, then let them try and justify it when millions of people burn for the freedom only they want."
"Zibarica, keep watch. We've only got one shot at this, and if it gets blown from something as small as a guard seeing us here, then Arcann will be the least of your problems."





When the light fades from your eyes, you can barely make out your surroundings. The blurry metal walls surrounding you shift and move in a blur, your body falling forward out of suspension. The cold metal ground is the first contact your senses make, telling your body that you have returned to the physical world.

However, this return comes with a price: your muscles ache and you are barely able to lift yourself into a standing position. Even the smallest act of movement requires nearly all of your concentration to accomplish; you are in no condition to fight. A single attack from even the weakest opponent could kill you.


Vegetto's knees struck the metal ground immediately, the fusion cringing in his pained gasps of air with Gogeta and Beerus following suit a few feet away from their respective pods. The arena room was a large circular place, each warrior having a large gap between each other from emerging out of their stasis.

A splitting image of Gogeta knelt down in front of Vegetto and Gogeta, a small smile across his face.

"Relax...take a minute to get your bearings."

The man was clad in alien armor, still checking on the others before cupping one hand over his mouth

"Zi! We're going to need your help in here!"

 A pair of hands caught Jaz by the shoulders before she could fall from the pod fully, an identical appearance of Vegetto staring into her eyes with a perplexed expression.

"Jaz? Is that you?"
Both Brachi and Xenest grunted as they woke up together, shaking the stars out of their vision in order to get a clearance of their surroundings, before identifying some energy signals of their close friends surrounding them.
Zibarica glanced out into the hallway carefully before joining the others in the room.

"Alright we're good for now, but that doesn't mean take your sweet time, alright?" The namekian huffed rushing to the warriors that lay helpless on the ground. 

Panich looked up lazily as she could seel a blurry image of what looked like a Namekian examining Bage.
Jaz's eyes fluttered open but her vision was somewhat blurry. She couldn't exactly make out who it was holding her but it looked like Vegetto to her so she assumed it was him. She seemed like she was out of breath and her breathing was heavy. She was completely unable to move in the grip of whoever was holding her. She struggled to move but it was costly to her. The more she intended to move, the more out of breath she became. 

"V-Veggie..?" She called out to the one holding her. "I can't...--" Her head and body went limp, taking up all the energy she had just to speak. Her eyes were the only thing that had energy to move but with a blurry vision, she was helpless.


Kire's body made a loud clang noise. His metal body hitting the metal floor caused him immense pain. He only let out a groan but he looked to be completely out of breath and struggling to even breath properly. His eyes didn't open by the pain he was in.

"God... damnit."
Mioi didn't have even the energy to move correctly, so the impact of her head hitting the floor was even more jarring given that her horns were at either side of her head. 

There wasn't any noise from her showing she was in pain save for the loud exhale of breath theough her nose and her eye being clenched shut in pain. 

Processing the sounds around her was also rather difficult, since she didn't recognize a few of them.
Gogeta Jr. began to walk outwards, shifting from group to group.

"Dad...Brachi...Bage, Panich and Jaz. I don't recognize a few of you, but the holo records were accurate; everyone from the invasion is here."

Beerus groaned heavily, his body twitching as he stretched.

"I feel as if I awoke from an uncomfortable nap. Why...why am I so drained?"

Gogeta Jr. turned his gaze to the god for a moment before glancing among the others.

"Your bodies have been in stasis for quite some time. Just give it a few minutes and ease into things: your body will readjust in a few seconds.

Vegetto Jr. grinned slightly at Jaz's confusion, keeping her steady.

"It's me, Junior. Just breathe slowly, and relax. I've got you."
Xenest blinked.
"Where are the others?!" He asked.

"Right here," a female voice said, "we're all here."

"Celicia!" Brachi said, just as she and Xenest were covered in a green glow, courtesy of Majin Bara whom was using her Healing Beam on them.
"Junior..?" Jaz said with some concern in her voice. She listened to the man and began to take deep breaths to try and recollect herself. Her body quaked at the pain she felt but it was mostly because she was sore. Her head lifted up and she stared directly at Junior's face. Her vision was slowly coming back to her and she instantly wrapped her arms around the man keeping her up on her feet. She used all the energy she had so far to do this.

"Junior!" Jaz cried. "It's you! It's really you!" Her body still needed a moment or so to collect itself but she was more happy to see the man she was looking for. "You're alive! I thought that something happened to you..."


Kire took his sweet time to get his energy back. While he slowly lifted himself to a sitting position, he noticed small parts of his robotic body were rusting. He seemed annoyed but it only made him think as to how long they were truly gone.

"Rust... How long were we asleep?" He whispered to himself.
