For part of my Namco Bandai application, I needed to choose 1 of 8 themes and express it musically in 15-90 seconds. The theme I chose was:

"Encountering a truly evil creature in a cave. It is unable to be beaten using fire magic, but light magic works and the opponent is vanquished."

It is written to evoke fear, excitement, despair, and hope. And here is how I pictured it in my mind:

Our hero, a fire mage, is exploring a cave when, suddenly, a fearsome demon appears around the corner. With every step, the demon shakes the floor, threatening to collapse the cave. Our hero has no chance of escape and realizes he has to make a stand. It begins.

The demon stares down at the hero, and our hero tightens his grip on his fire staff, readying himself. They pause a moment, measuring each other's strength. The demon raises his arm and attacks, gouging a path of destruction towards the mage; our hero barely dodges out of the way and starts his attack. The fight rages on; the demon continues to attack with his powerful claws while the hero's summoned fireballs scream toward the demon. But the fireballs are merely shrugged off by the demon's fire-resistant skin. Our hero begins to panic, since his attacks seem to have no effect. The demon takes advantage of his alarm and deals a blow. Our hero flies through the air and slams against the cave wall, severely injured. He struggles to move, his face is full of dread as he resigns himself to his fate and the demon approaches, when, suddenly...

A blinding, white light surges through the cave with an angel in its wake. She rains holy magic upon the demon, beating it back with ease. Our hero looks on in awe. He hears his heart beat; he is alive. The angel vanquishes the enemy and flies toward our hero. The last thing he sees is the angel extending her arms towards him. He is exhausted; his vision blurs and, ultimately, he loses consciousness.

Special thanks to Sarah for vocals at the end of the song (I did not auto-tune her voice. I just added reverb!). Thank you for listening! As always, comments and constructive criticism are great appreciated. :)
