After walking for several hours it would seem; with someone in tow in hopes to escort her safely to the Palace grounds, he swung his new found blade; as he thrust his hand out with it, stabbing an unsuspecting zombie as he came limping towards them as if ready to attack them, Cirdan pulled the sword out after taking off the creatures head. Several more came towards him it would almost seem like he was hopelessly outnumbered, but Cirdan smiled some as his ''carelessness'' within battle in spite of the fact he's escorting this female to the Palace. He moved his hands waggling his fingers some as he enacted a spell, and from out of no where lightning seems to come down hard upon the zombies causing them to burst into flames and fall down dead '' Again '' with a sigh he glanced around '' Come now child we must make it safely back before more of them come upon us! '' with that he would turn and begin his march towards the stairs of the Palaces throne room. He turned towards the Empire as he called upon the Divine and with a spell he would cast some holy wards against the Palace and a golden like bubble would envelope the whole Palace protecting it against the undead, he did his dance chanting a hypnotized danced as he called upon the lords of law and the heavenly gods to bless this Palace and the Empire as well he did all this of course knowing the child would be watching at the scene before her as he did his hypnotizing dance, swinging his sword around as power seems to animate around his very body and he'd do this for several minutes for the spell had to be done with precision he was far beyond gone then, his mind travelling across the planes of existence, perhaps even the multiverse itself as he used his training he had known for years, something he's never openly showed anyone for time seem meaningless to the former Emperor it was as if he was searching for something to help aid in this fight, as if he travelled through time and space
Do keep the present in thought, an illusion can kill you if you believe in it.
