Nevan and Maria: "Who do you think you are?"A/N: (Pardon the info dump!)
To catch the story up: Dante and Nero chased Nevan/Maria for a couple of weeks. It quickly became apparent that they were not engaging in random acts of brutality, but were looking for something. What, exactly, neither devil hunter had the time to figure out, because wherever the not-fully-integrated duo went, slavishly devoted demonic entities followed. There were also times when it seemed that Maria was trying to do something without Nevan's approval, like going back to Dante's shop to get her weapon back. It was during one of those times that Nero managed to get a message to Maria via her Net connection, trying to tell her that she was safe with him. The results of this were unknown until the final showdown, when Nevan/Maria found a place where they could gather power to rip open a portal to whichever particular Hell Nevan came from. Dante and Nero battled a demonic army, but it was Maria who decided to kill her guards which allowed Dante to run her through and break their bond. Unfortunately, the portal was already open, and Maria was very nearly destroyed by the backlash. Nevan escaped through the portal, and Dante gave chase. Nero tended to Maria, learning what had to be done to close the connection, then left her with her laser scythe and a reason to live despite her burned-away eyes and burnt bridges.
