Chapter 0Edit

In Red Grave City, Griffon spots a demon and notifies V, who sit upon corpses of numerous demons and tells Griffon to ignore the demon if it is not coming near them. V reads "A Poison Tree" from his book and looks upon the Qliphoth tree. V narrates the Qliphoth is feeding off on human blood to grow a fruit for Urizen. The chapter flashbacks to many different point of V's life, one involving shortly after his birth with Griffon telling him they need to join forces if they want to beat Urizen. Another gives a glimpse of V obtaining his cane and Shadow for the first time. One moment shows Griffon warning V that not all demons will submit so easily and must be tamed by force as they face against a Phantom. Another sequence shows them facing against Nightmare, with Griffon wanting them to run away. The final moment shows V sneaking into a sleeping Nero's hospital room, vowing to use everything he can to defeat Urizen.

Chapter 1Edit

After ripping Nero's Devil Bringer off, a weak and dying Vergil goes to the ruins of his former home in Red Grave City. While he doesn't fear death, Vergil's desire to beat Dante and his desire for power compels him to use the Yamato to discard anything that he believes that makes him weak. Vergil then removes the memories of his enslavement as Mundus's Nelo Angelo, causing them to manifest as shadowy creatures, as well as his decaying flesh and human heart. As a result, V and Urizen are born, with V being left with a human body that will eventually perish. As Urizen begins to form, V watches in fear and tries to crawl away, all while failing to strengthen his feeble body with demonic power. V reflects on how terrifed he felt about being powerless in front of Urizen's demonic presence as he finds Vergil's book of poems on the ground, causing V to remember Vergil's childhood with his brother Dante. When V internally express his wish of not wanting to die, Griffon yells at V to express his desire to live out loud and lifts V off the floor. Griffon takes V outside and drops him on a pile of garbage, mocking V a little bit before telling him to make a contract with him.

Chapter 2Edit

In a deserted alleyway in Red Grave City, a young punk mugged an old man as a naked V approach the scene. While the punk focus his attention on V, Griffon attacks the punk from behind and knock him unconscious. As V steals the punk's clothes and jewelry, V comments on clothing style causing Griffon to rant at his nitpicking and tells V that must listen to his wishes. A flashback taking place outside Sparda's mansion shows Griffon half-jokingly pitching to V to make a contract with him. Annoyed at Griffon's yapping, V shuts his beak and demands that Griffon explain himself. Griffon reveals to V that he is the discarded memories that Vergil cut off with Yamato, specifically the "nightmares" of Vergil's time with Mundus. While Griffon states his doesn't care that Vergil discarded him, but as a "dream", he will disappear soon without a host. Griffon says the V will become his host since his body is also decaying and he can't return to being Vergil, as the demon side of him will never allow that to happen. He also stresses that V doesn't the power to defeat the demon half, therefore the two of them have to work together or they will die. Back in the present, V questions why would he need Griffon, angering him since been helping him. However, V clarify that he planning on "using" Griffon, not helping him, and voices his skepticism of his abilities. While exasperated V's demeanor, Griffon agrees to prove himself to V, who tells him to kill the Empusa that manifest in the alley. Griffon easily subdue the Empusa with a lighting attack, boasting to V if he still think he doesn't need him.

Chapter 3Edit

V looks upon the fallen Empusa, wondering if its appearance in the city is because of Urizen. Griffon confirms V's theory, and states that due to how powerful Urizen is and the fact he has Yamato, Red Grave City will likely be infested with demons soon. Griffon chides V for acting arrogant when he can't even protect himself and mocks him as V picks up Vergil's poetry book. While V express his dislike of teaming up with Griffon, he agrees to work together with him because he doesn't want to die. As the two bickers with one another, the Empusa rises from the ground and attacks the duo, much to Griffon's shock. Griffon dodges the Empusa and lifts V in the air, questioning why his lightning didn't kill it and tries striking it again. However, the Empusa is still alive and recovers from the attack. Griffon suddenly runs out of demonic power, causing his form to become unstable and making him fall to the ground. Unable to fight, Griffon tells V that they need to hide, prompting V to break into a nearby antique store and drags Griffon inside. The Empusa attacks V, pining him down, but Griffon draws its attention and lunches a strong attack, despite his weak condition. V reflects how frustrating it is to be weak and decides to take action, breaking a glass case and retrieves a cane to stab the Empusa.

Chapter 4Edit

After great effort, V is able to successfully kill the Empusa and collapse on a nearby couch. V wonders if he was able to killed the demon because of the cane, though it doesn't look like a Devil Arm. Griffon explains to V that it is not the cane, but V himself. Griffon deduces that because he is a essentially "dream" without any substance, so it's impossible for him to kill anything, and V must be the one to deliver the killing blow. Griffon states if this will work they will fight in the future, although V is doubtful that could do it since it took a lot effort just beat a low-level demon. However, Griffon assures V that he shouldn't be ashamed since the both of them are "pathetic" in their own way. Having reach his limit, Griffon's form begins to melt on the floor and tells V to make a choice quickly. Knowing he doesn't much options, V accepts he needs Griffon and places his hand on Griffon's melted form to begin the contract. As Griffon's form wraps around V's body, Griffon apologizes to V for thinking he will be a burden and the promise not to make fun of him anymore. With the contract complete, V gains tattoos on his upper chest and arms as Griffon regain his proper form.
