Blade managed to latch on at the last second before the Monster finally fell over, Aftan being quick enough to get out of harms way.
As the trio retreated, The Monster fell to it's side in the heart of Central Park.
The Impact was earth shattering massive and created a massive Sonic Boom which broke several windows, including the ones on the Rising Dawn, as well as send out a massive shock-wave though the air, violently rocking the Dragon and it's passagers.
Blade felt the wind get knocked out of his system and nearly lost his grip as a result.

Suddenly a majestic black-and-white Griffon blasted into a tree in Central Park.

"He abuses that damn cannon..." he muttered, picking his large dual-animal body up and resting on a strong branch. Severin giggled and huggled Rarity, who had called sick before she did anything major.

Jackle App sighed and whistled a calm tune, watching a monster squirm on the ground thirty-odd yards away from him.

Caramel Frappe:



*Ehecatl roared a hollow laughter that sounded of nails on a chalkboard, if that chalkboard had been freshly dug from the grave, as he reveled in Taokaka's destruction and death.*

"FOOLS! YOU COULD NOT SAVE YOUR COMRADE! YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF, ESPECIALLY YOU ARCHANGEL OF NOTHING!"*Ehecatl roared as he wheeled in the air, preparing for another attack on the city.*

*Curiously, the Lesser Dragons were absent from the battle. Looking upwards, Ehecatl noticed that all his mates were flying high above him, keeping themselves out of the battle.*

*Kurumu let out her own roar as she finished another pass, shredding even more of Ehecatl's wings.*

"You're going to pay for that you bastard. It's time... you're grounded"*Kurumu yelled as she pulled up and away from Ehecatl's wings.*


".. The loss is always heavy, and it never gets old ether." Ryan didn't know who that was, but if a warrior- she deserved a proper funeral after. He has seen those who fought for what they believed in, and died trying. He knew what it felt like losing those that mattered, whether it's a friend, a comrade... a wife.

"Time to end this, you vile beast of sickening blood!" As Legna made a sharp turn which was just able to avoid a few inches of the dragon's attacks despite that Elecatl was aiming at the city- Ryan was able to do another shout.

"JOO-" Suddenly the dragon let out another blast, but with it's own voice. The vibration alone nearly shook Ryan off the dragon from which he was riding, but luckily enough he held on tight and besides- he handled withstanding the force of other enemies who shouted words of power at him like Fus Ro Dah (Unrelenting Force)


After getting a grip on Legna, Ryan suggested an idea he was sure no one would like. "Seems like that dragon won't take us easy anymore, he's going to suspect an assault from the angles. We need to charge forward, and go head-to-head with the dragon." Though Inuart did not like the sounds of this at all, Legna decided it would be best to just go with it. Besides, if anything happened a dodge would be as easy as cake.

So with that, Legna flew forward as Elecatl flew forward too. It was like a snow fox running towards a killer whale, if not a blue whale. Even Ryan felt nervous, the size of this thing seemed to come out of a nightmare. However, with the courage and fire in his heart he took a breath and shouted with all his might, "JOOR ZAH FRUL!!"

Despite that the mighty dragon saw it coming, he was to much of a 'tank' to really avoid it. Feeling the verges of mortality once more, he was truly enraged by this and refused with all his willpower to not submit. However, because of how his wings were full of holes and ripped apart- he was slowly falling and nothing he did would lift him back up.

Eventually with a thud that caused a huge gust wind, Elecatl was on the ground and looked up with drool running down his mouth, angry as heck for being brought down to the Earths because of these 'weaklings'.

*Ehecatl's landing was not as graceful as one would think for a Dragon, no, his immense size allowed him to destroy miles of city as his mass came crashing to the ground, kicking up a giant crash.*

"WHAT IS THIS FEELING?!?*Ehecatl screamed as his felt his own mortality.*

*He struggled to get upright but found that his immense size became a hindrance as his legs were unable to support his size.*

*The Lesser Dragon's screamed with laughter as their master was brought down to the ground like the worm he was and descended upon him, like a pack of winged sharks, save for Silvara, the silver dragon who watched as her sisters jumped on the stricken Ehecatl, their former master.*

"FOOLISH WORMS! DO YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN TRULY DEFEAT YOUR MASTER?"*Ehecatl's voice sounded off before he annihilated a good portion of the rebel dragons.*

"Silvara! I know that this is your doing... when I get back up there... I will feast upon you!"*He continued.*

*The remaining dragons, 19 remaining, excluding Silvara herself, returned to the skies and watched with dread and apprehension as Ehecatl struggled to free himself from the spell that kept him grouded.*


"We need something to finish him!"*Kurumu called out, preparing to set a collision course."


*As the great beast fell on its side in Central Park, Aftan used to tonfa to pierce the beast's rocky hide and use the blade to maintain her position on the back of he Mammoth.*

"Whose idea was that anyways?"*Aftan muttered as watched a multitude of Cultists fall over the side to their deaths.*

*A few moments later, Khthon got back up on its feet to continue its rampage, minus a few of its minions.*

*Using the moment of disorientation, Aftan cut down a few more of the Eco Terrorists, parting limb and organs from body.*

*Sensing that the Kits... Akane (grumble) ... was nearby, Aftan worked her way towards the other's position, making short work of flak cannons and other weapons as she progressed.*

As Ehecatl's voice echoed on the ground, Tomoya knew this would be a good chance to summon as use the weapon he had kept in his possession for the longest time, even before he became Archangel. The lightning stopped being absorbed as the runes on Tomoya's hands turned golden."It is time evil dragon, lord of dragons and bringer of evil! Taste the power of my soul! " Tomoya yelled as a bright golden light emitted from the runes.

"By my hand God, lend me the power to take up the ultimate weapon against evil. Allow me to summon and use the Sword of Promised victory and banish this evil back to hell where it belongs!" As the Archangel said that a giant burst of gold engulfed him. Like if it was as God was giving him the weapon himself.

"Archangel relic key, unlock. SUMMON!" The yell echoed though out the country as a weapon made out of pure holy gold came from the aura that Archangel Tomoya held in both hands. He held it in the air as the holy aura faded away and the Archangel held a sword.

Everyone gazed up to see the golden sword in all of its glory. "Everyone run as quick as you can. I can not promise how much this will destroy. So RUN!" Tomoya yelled as holy lightning started to strike the sword and a holy golden light started to admit from it. As everyone heard the warning, they began to scatter.

The Lightning dragon looked up at the golden figure in the sky. "I won't let a puny Archangel kill me!" He yelled at Archangel Tomoya which had already reached full power. Golden wing circled around him and the sword as he raised the sword in the air. "Taste the power of the Archangel of Lightning, evil douche dragon. ARCHANGEL EXCALIBUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRR!!!" Tomoya yelled which echoed through out the world.

As the golden beam infused with white holy lightning came down, the dragon swore at he archangel. A giant explosion the size of Mt Everest, came from the dragon which surly killed him, sending him straight to hell. The beam also did not harm any innocents near by or buildings.


What the Nord in wolf armor just witnessed, was probably the most jaw dropping moment of his life. Ryan may of been able to do some things, even impossible feats that no one else could dream of doing- but this... this was the work of something so much greater his mind was blown by the sight itself.

".. By .. .. Ismer ... what in name was.. that..??" Unable to even get the full grasp of what just happened, he didn't realize on the roof of a nearby building the dragon Lagna landed. Inuart and him got off after realization and could only stare at the aftermath of that godly blast.

Without thinking this to himself, Ryan spoke under his own breath, "May the Gods have mercy on me... if I ever dared fight against one such as he."


Caramel Frappe:

Legna's Favor

*As Ehecatl was struck by the Holy Beam, it began infusing him was a great deal of energy, which began spreading from the point of the beam's impact.*

"FOOLS! DO YOU THINK SUCH A PUNY WEAPON COULD. *HURK*"*Ehecatl roared before he started feeling the effects of the Holy Beam as it began roasting him like a hamster inside a microwave.*

*The Great Dragon unleashed a deafening roar of both fury and pain as he energy reached his black heart.*

*As people watched, something rather unpredictable happened. Ehecatl exploded rather messily all over the South African cityscape, covering buildings, cars and streets with Dragon giblets.*

*As the smoke, dusk and blood settled, all that remained of Ehecatl was his massive body, minus a great 5 mile in diameter hole that went clean through his chest... Ehecatl, who had taken down countless civilizations, made a mockery of Dragon kind and sought to bring order into the universe by consuming it, was dead.*

*Puce watched as Ehecatl's energy disappeared into the great beyond and smiled. The beast was dead and Kurumu and he were still alive.*

*As Kurumu landed Spectre Mk.2 on the outskirts of the city, a piece of cloth that resembled Tao's face drifted in the wind, only to be caught by Puce.*

"If only she was as lucky as we were."*Puce said to Kurumu as they walked off to bury what was left of Taokaka.*

*Legan, Inuart and Ryan landed on near the ruined Hammer Empire submarine base and were greeted by the Silver Dragon Silvara. It seemed strange to them that the Silver Dragon, as well as the other dragons overhead seemed much smaller, closer in size to Legna than they were previously.*

"The Great Beast is dead thanks to your efforts. You have freed my sisters and I and for that, we will be eternally grateful. However, there is the small matter of the favor I requested should the one who will no longer be spoken of be vanquished."*Silvara said, directing the part of Legna himself.*

"My sisters and myself no longer have a mate. Our species is doomed if we are unable to create new offspring. Within each of us, my sisters and myself, we have a clutch of eggs that still need to be fertilized. Legna, our savior, will you grant us your seed so that the newest of our young will never again live under the sigma of the great consumer."*Silvara asked as Ryan and Inuart began blushing.*

*Elsewhere in the City, Tomoya noticed the Spectre Mk.2 land and landed nearby. Seeing that Puce and Kurumu were preparing a funeral for the fallen Taokaka, he joined them.

Le sad snip.

As Tomoya came down from the sky and landed next to Puse and Kurumu. He had joined them for Tao's funeral, which had had attended as himself and not in Archangel form. He still had the holy sword in his hands but he knew he had to send it back to Heaven's vault at some point.

Puse and Kurumu could only see some sadness in Tomoya's eyes. He briefly gave a calm smile to them to them before standing next to them sighing. "I wonder how the others are doing?" Tomoya had said as he held the sword tightly next to him. Tomoya taps the sword on the ground of Tao's burial, blessing the ground and her soul to go to Heaven. Tomoya had also said some words about her playful attitude and the size of her stomach.

Jenny felt the ground shake after the Mammoth fell.
Despite this, she pressed on into the old Irish Pub and after the metal cries of help.
After several minutes of slowly scanning the area, she found a badly beaten man in the Men's bathroom, far beyond the means of a normal man.
She felt remorse at his passing but this was not the time for mourning, not with that Monster out there.

Jenny slowly walked out of the bathroom and was greeted with a Tall man in a Mask and Trench-Coat changing the "Open" Sign to "Closed".
"...Sir?...Can I help you?..." She asked as he turned to face her.
"Hello Jenny, It's been a while..." He chuckled as he put his hands in his pockets.
"H-how do you know my name?..." She asked as a sense of dread entered her system.
"Simple. You know mine...heheheheh" The man said as he reached behind his head and took off his mask.

Jenny felt a level of fear she hadn't experienced since she was captured.
Bruiser revealed his face, Pitch Black from the fires that burned him, His eye's scorched white, his dark teeth rearranged in a evil smile.
"Remember me?..." He asked, knowing full well she did.
Jenny merely shaked in fear.
" killed you..." she said as she backed into the counter.
"Really?...You think that Bitch can just "Put Down" a masterpiece of a Machoke like Myself?...Granted it hurt, but I'm still here, Ain't I?..." Bruiser retorted as he slowly advanced.

"W-w-w-what do you want?..." her voice broke as she checked for any of the others within Mental Range.
"Ohhhhhhh where to begin? My own personal Island? Some Burn Cream? and, of course, to send a Message to Toots..." He answered before throwing his coat to the side.
"T-t-then...You're...N-n-not gonna..."
Bruiser cracked his knuckles and his neck.
"Message Begin: Dear Toots..." he calmly said before he lashed out at Jenny.

Several Minutes passed, Bruiser picked Jenny up by the hair, looked at her beaten face and said "...With Love, Bruiser."
With his message recorded, he threw her broken body into the Mirror behind the counter before grabbing his Mask and Coat and causally walking away from the scene, stopping only to change the sign back to "Open".

Jenny meanwhile was beaten as badly as she was back in Kanto, only with no strangers to help her this time...

"The Captcha is "Good Job"...This thing is watching me...and is a Sadist..."



As Tomoya finished blessing the ground where Taokaka was buried (pieces of her, clothing mostly), Ryan made his way to them. Puce and Kurumu would of said something, but they paid their respects in silence for their dead comrade. Tomoya seemed to be taking it harder even though he didn't show it due to being strong.

As Ryan had no idea whom this cat girl was, he would not defile her name by saying a mere line. Instead, because she fought these dragons bravely and was allied to the strongest of people he has ever witnessed, she deserved the final words of a true warrior.

"If I may speak, I would like to give her my prayers so the Gods may hear." The other three nodded to his request, and so Ryan began to speak the words that his Companions spoke at Kodlak's funeral.

    "Before the ancient flame,
    we grieve...
    at this loss,
    we weep...
    for the fallen,
    we shout...
    and for ourselves,
    we take our leave..."

Going on one knee, he held his sword in front with one hand and in the other had two fingers sign a cross in front of his chest. Paying respects was one thing, but the feeling was a whole other matter. He did not do this just for Taokaka alone... but for those people who have lived on this land that lost their lives without a fighting chance. It was unjustified, how a beast so massive would prey on the weak rather then fighting amongst the strong. Such cowardness, to even feast on it's own kin. Disgusting, he would hope the monster rested in peace but met a good end if God see fit otherwise.

Standing back up, he gave a proper greeting to these heroes. "My name, is Ryan. You have brought honor and glory to yourselves, and to this reach. I'm the Harbinger of the Companions, and you three would make fine warriors if you decided to join. I would propose to celebrate this victory, but the loss... is to great. Please, come.. tell me your names."

Dillon learned what happened to jenny, it was too late to save her but he could do something aout it. fist off he informed blade.
"Blade listen to me-"
"Oh go swallow a Cacnea, I got better things to-"
"Jenny has been injured.
Oh..... um thanks for the tip, sorry I'm just, Oh I see you gave me her location on my communicator already, erm thanks
"NO problem now if you'll excuse me, I'm going down there to eat a cactus."
Wait Dillon look, about the Canea thing, I didn't mean it I was just
Dillon didn't respond he flew down to where Bruiser was making his escape
"Hey asshole"
Bruiser turned to see a teenage boy with golden wings of light, he was weilding two blades and had a smug grin on his face.
"Why don't you pick on someone you own size, or do you prefer girls who can't fight back?"
Dillon twirled his blades taunting him.

Ooh la la!!

Legna only arched a ridge and gave a small message to Inuart; "Do tell the Hammers that I will return shortly. I have some well deserved shore leave to attend to. One moment, madam. I must bring these two to Terra Firma. I shan't leave you waiting for long...."

Caramel Frappe:
madman talking to j00!

And that, as far as Inuart could tell, was the quickest flight he had ever found himself participant of. After Legna rejoined the female dragons, Inart began to search for the strange boy who had stolen the Grail; and the small girl that accompanied him. When Inuart heard Ryan's words, he gave a light chuckle and pointed at himself, "I am Inuart. As for the dragon, he told me that he doesn't like giving away his name; but he's not here right now. That would be Legna. Now.. Have you seen a boy with brown hair and a girl with blue hair? They were carrying a Grail? That would belong to some superiors of mine, and they REALLY need it..."

His head swiveled to see Puce and Kurumu before him... And his face contorted with rage most foul. "YOU!!!"

Oh hell NO!

Blade was with ME, you know...

As Angelus was ferrying the swordsman and the Pokemon, when she heard Jenny's call for Blade.
"Oh dear... Blade, it appears we have a problem..."

*Puce and Kurumu, now back in her wooden doll form and seated on Puce's shoulder, turned to discover the source of the voice, bodies tensed due to the voice's aggression.*

"Is that?"*Kurumu started before she saw Inuart standing before them. an enraged look plastered on his face.*

"Yup... it's Inuart"*Puce said is he began to draw his staff.*

*Unbeknownst to Inuart, Puce began channeling energy from the Spectre Mk.2 fusion reactor into the Earth behind him, next to his messenger bag and began forming a perfect replica of the Grail that Inuart so greatly wanted.*

"Inuart... you know I can't let you resurrect Furiae. Caim and Angelus told us everything."

His head swiveled to see Puce and Kurumu before him... And his face contorted with rage most foul. "YOU!!!"


"Yup... it's Inuart"*Puce said is he began to draw his staff.*

It has seemed the two were destined to battle- however, Ryan got in the way and had a very intimidating expression upon his face and glanced both ways. "Do not fight on honored soil... this is where a warrior lies now. If you really must spill blood, do it elsewhere."

Not even giving them a chance to reason with him, Ryan pulled out his sword and readied his shield. He was not aiming at anyone in particular, but he would not allow such barbarous behavior unfold over sacred ground.

Caramel Frappe:



As the stranger shouted, Tomoya backed up Ryan, "Nice speech there." He smiled as his smile turned angry when he saw the person. "I wouldn't do that if I was you...You just saw what I did right?! This is holy ground now as the dragon man said!" Tomoya yelled as he raised Excalibur at the stranger.

Tomoya knew that the grail belonged to Earth, but he would allow Puse to have it even if it is a holy relic. He didn't know why the dragons would want it though. Tomoya would protect this holy ground and Tao's resting place with his whole power.

-Snip Combo!-

Inuart's face went a little slack, and then a sharp gasp escaped his mouth, and a laugh. A few more short desperate laughs fell from the redhead's mouth.

After the cacophony of laughs ended, Inuart limply pointed his sword at Puce,
"Of course he's here! My path in life never seems to be without the 'Great' Caim, the 'Magnificent' Caim! As for this Angelus character, I suppose it's that pompous dragon of his. I always hated that lizard... I take it you two friends of his? And, they 'told' you everything? How I was fooled, trying to save my love?! EVERYTHING I DID, IT WAS FOR HER!!! HE WOULD HAVE SACRIFICED HER FOR REVENGE! What was I to do? She had died! Wouldn't you have done the same, in my shoes?"

Caramel Frappe:
-Two Snip Combos!!-


Inuart gasped for air, pain and fury still painting his face pink, and he looked to the impressive Archangel and Dragon-Slayer. Taking a swallow of air (he looked on the verge of tears) and said,

"I respect the both of you, and your wishes. Give me a moment."

He looked to Puce again, "You had better hand over the grail, or start running. I do not want to anger these warriors any more than they already are."



Caramel Frappe:

*Puce smiled at Inuart, the pitying smile of one who fully understood what it meant to give it your all to save the one you loved, to dedicate everything, even your own death, to that something. Puce knew what it was like and what an extreme version of this obsession had done to others... namely Dillon.*

"You know... I've seen that look before, the same look before, right before someone stabbed me in the back and twisted the blade."*Puce said twirling his staff.*

"I also saw it right before Tao's death... when Tomoya took Ehecatl's lies for truth and became obsessed with felling the Great Beast. While I did this task to return a favor to Angelus and Caim, I see that they were right. You'd sacrifice the world and everyone in it to have a shot of bringing Furiae's damnation to our world."*Puce said as he performed a lunging attack on Inuart... only to suddenly dissipate into smoke, Kurumu's illusion released.*

*Looking around, Tomoya, Ryan and Inuart saw that Puce and Kurumu and the Spectre Mk.2 were missing. Only the Grail remained.*

*Walking forward, Inuart bent down to pick up the Grail, only to have it turn to dust at his touch, Puce's final insult to the fallen warrior.*

*From the pilot's seat of the cloaked Spectre Mk.2, Puce could have sword he heard Inuart's manic scream.*

*Moments later, Kurumu set a course for Moscow. Rumors of Liseth, the Mother of Succubi, destroying to Russian Capital had perked her and Puce's interest.*

Puse's eyes/ears fail! SNIP.

Caramel Frappe:
Introduction SNIP!

As Tomoya heard Puse he couldn't care if it was a lie or not, but Tomoya could sense the truth to the dragon's words. Tomoya wasn't going to get involved with this, he knew the grails effects and he knew it wasn't going to end well with whatever they are going to do. The objective for Tomoya now is to get back to Dillon's ship so he could help them with the rest of the monsters.

Strapping Excalibur to his back he knew he wanted to help everyone else. Tomoya looked back at Ryan. "Who are you?" Tomoya asked him as he called his ship back down.



Not sure what to make of the situation, the Nord stood there watching Inuart's reaction with the Grail being turned into mere dust. However, what he did know was how Inuart felt about wanting someone you loved back. His thoughts trailed to that one.. dreadful night.

Memories that shouldn't be brought into the present- Ryan resisted having the flash back and turned his gaze to the horizon. "Talos watch over us as we descend into our fallen times..." He turned and checked up on Inuart.

"Whomever this is, this 'lover' of yours... let her rest. Bringing back the dead is disturbing their place in the afterlife. She wouldn't want to see you like this, what'd she think of a madman?"

-He certainly feels that way about himself-

Inuart's eyes had widened with joy when the Grail graced his hands, but when dust appeared in his place... An unholy scream tore through his throat as he gripped his head and fell to a slump; each peal of grief overcoming the next.

Caramel Frappe:
-Oh dear... You've gone and done it now.-

When Inuart heard Ryan's words of letting go, his head whipped in the direction of the Dragon-Slayer, the screams finally ending. In their place, the laughter lightly showing through again. Inuart forced himself up again, his sword being used as a crutch. When he was finally stable (HA!) he pointed his sword at Ryan and in between dark laughter said, "Let her go? When I have the chance to bring her back? Surely you jest?! The gods are cruel to assume we are so willing to allow their machinations, to just sit back as our loved ones die! Why should they decide? What gives them that power?! If you really want to try me, warrior, than do so! I only ask we do not anger the Angel. I will fight by my words, and for the life of Furiae! She WILL return to me! I won't lose this chance again!"

Clearly, the warrior was not listening to reason; his true colors of madness showing through.


The words this man spoke, reminded him of someone he met in Markarth back in Skyrim. A man he met with on his investigation about the Forsworn.. Thonar. The man on that very same day lost his wife to the Forsworn he was so sure of having under his 'control'. That man told Ryan these very words.

"Shut up! Only the gods can judge me-" ... It seemed like a memory not long past after all.

The Gods or rather, the God Ryan believed in... many question him, others say only he can decide fate. It seemed that this was his trial. And by that, Ryan would not stand to be lectured (if talked to) by this bewildering man before him.

Ryan walked half a circle around Inuart, and drew his own sword. "You discard my knowledge of the days that i've gained them? You would strive to bring back someone for the sole purpose of having them to yourself then what really is best for Furiae?"

It seemed they walked sideways, distancing themselves from where Taokaka's burial is at.

"A true Nord- no... a true man, would uphold his honor and acknowledge what he had in the days of his wife's last thoughts. Bringing her back will do you no deed or glory, but rather sorrow for she'd be nothing but a shell of her innocence left behind!"

Caramel Frappe:
-Oh boy...-

Inuart's head lolled back, and he breathed in again, "Hehehehehe... You know, the first time I brought her back; she embraced me. It was so sweet... I long for it once again... And I am certain she would do so again! You would never know what is between us."

Cutting the puppet act; Inuart immediately snapped into action, and brought his sword down again; an icy wave shooting straight at the wolf adorned warrior.

[b]Crazy girl is Cra-zaY! SNIP.

Caramel Frappe:

As the crazy Bluerocker Inuart started to attack Ryan, Tomoya jumped back to the burial site and struck his Excalibur into the ground. Creating a small energy shield around the site due to it's blessing. Tomoya was tired from the last battle, he needed to rest in his ship. He would introduce himself to Ryan after this battle, Tomoya then leaned on the sword for support. "I should of called for the sheath as well, but that would of killed this body..." Tomoya sighed as he looked upon the battle as his ship landed behind him.

Tomoya wondered that if he destroyed the soul of the Dragon, would it bring back the people? The soul of the dragon came out as soon as it was destroyed, but he felt like the dragon man had absorbed it.


Spells and unique abilities.. Ryan thought to himself. Clearly this man skipped the swordsman game and went straight for the killing. Within that short amount of time, Ryan positioned himself and closed his eyes. The ice wave was just inches away from him now- until Ryan shouted, "FUS RO DAH!!"

The force of his voice was so powerful, it not only blasted the ice wave out of the way shattering it, but blew Inuart a foot away if not blasting him to roll a few times. Puce could probably even hear it despite being in a fast moving vehicle. Positioning himself to stand normally, Ryan started walking toward Inuart who was getting himself up.

"Perhaps I wouldn't know the love you shared for the many years that came- but do know this. Others have been in love, felt the loss, and suffered greatly. The difference is- how a man, warrior nor so, handle it. I've been there.. I have felt a woman's touch where no one has ever been able to attempt doing before. My heart aches when even speaking her name, and you had to bring it up."

Khthon slowly got up from the fall, a lot angrier than before. After it got back up and shook off the rest of the dizziness, it reared up on it's hind legs. Bringing the full weight of itself down, Khthon unleashed a huge localized earthquake. After that it began to stampede through the city.

Caramel Frappe:
-He's not down yet..-

Inuart's face had contorted to anger once again, and he was readying his sword as Ryan came closer. With a desperate (and easy to dodge) swipe of his sword, Inuart yelled after Ryan's speech, "I don't care! What is a world without Furiae?! As long as she is with me, nothing matters! NOTHING!"

His sword swipes certainly gained more spirit after that, and Ryan was (pleasantly?) surprised to see that Inuart did receive proper sword training after all. And true to his thoughts, Inuart would not listen to reason.

-Priorities; Angie has them-

Angelus let out a hiss of disdain, and was torn between finding Jenny and getting rid of the monstrosity before them. If Jenny wasn't found soon, the monolith could squish Jenny. However, if they focused on the monster, Jenny could have worse things occur. Decisions, decisions...

Dillon was inside his airship, he knew the heroes would likely be tired again or at least want something to recover lost energy.
however his Excalibur was acting strange
"Can you at least call me by name at least once we're friends you said so."
Realizing he was caught decided as long as no one was around he may as well speak straight
"Well then Dillon., I feel a presence of a Copy, need I remind you one of your clauses is to wield only me as your magic weapon, that decent if plain katana is acceptable but-"
Whoa whoa whoa, you mean your- By the shadows of Shakuras, your jealous."
Dillon laughed as he prepared some simple banana milkshakes he would add whipped cream and chocolate bits on top later. He knew he would likely seem silly but he has added in special protein mixes that restored the body, however it also tasted disgusting so Dillon used milkshakes to hide the horrible flavor it tasted like delicious milkshakes. maybe with some bitter cocoa in it.


*As Old Mommy was trying to decide where to go, Cadolbolg knew what he needed to do. While he could not possibly do as much damage as Old Mommy could to the giant trunkless Elephant, he could look for Friend Jenny who must have been somewhere in the street below.*

"Mommy! Cadolbolg look for Friend Jenny. Mommy blast Trunkless Elephant into next Tuesday."*Cadolbolg croaked as he banked and dove towards Jenny's last known position. If Friend Jenny was in trouble, Cadolbolg could carry her up into the Airship.*

*Aftan and Akane both steadied themselves as Khthons came crashing down, causing several of Manhattan's building began sinking as the bedrock underneath became like quicksand in a process known as Liquefaction.*

*They did find that it was remarkably easy to maintain their balance on the back of the rearing Mammoth, the Cultists and Eco-Terrorists had done a great job at building shock absorbers underneath the buildings built on Khthon's back.*

"Are you okay... Akane (grumble)...?"*Aftan asked uncharacteristically.*

*Before ... Akane (grumble) could answer, more members of the Khthonic cult openned fire on their position with automatic machine guns.*

*Using her wrist mounted shield projector, Aftan blocked the incoming bullets while ... Akane (grumble)... used her fire magic to rip a hole in the cultists' position.*

*Moments later, the duo dismembered the remaining cultists with their bladed tonfa and katana combination.*

"Nicely done."*...Akane (grumble)... said as the two moved on towards the peak of Khthon's back.*


Ryan dodged some, blocked some of the sword swipes with his shield, and evaded the ice waves that came and went. It would seem this man was truly mad, or rather.. he was to obsessed with bringing back his Furiae to see logic behind his actions.

Ryan, his leg sliding back- he shouldered Inuart just enough to make him take a step back and then to low kick with his other leg making Inuart fall to his bottom. A sword was pointed at Inuart, showing him that he was at his mercy.. however, Inuart did an uppercut with his blade managing to take Ryan by surprise which his left arm holding the shield got cut not to deeply but blood was showing.

"Pushing your chances are not worth it, a life of your own is better off living in honor then trying to seize what's already been lost. If you can't see that, or care to listen to a Harbinger... I won't settle for pitying you no longer."


Angelus gave a roar, and thanked her brilliant, brilliant, child, and proceeded to fly straight for the great quadruped, raining fire at it's sides. When she drew close, Caim jumped with Fheng's Glaive in hand, creating a great shockwave and several cultists to be blown away.

Caramel Frappe:
-And... He's taking the easy way out.-

In the distraction, caused by his cut, Inuart pushed passed Ryan and began to run. This man was a distraction.

"I do not have time for you! What matters is that I regain the Grail!"

What mattered now was to get a hold of that man and his doll... And make them pay for making him one step further from Furiae's embrace.


Lily shook her head and motioned for the woman to sit down in the middle of the circle. "No, i have everything i need now."

The girled waited for the woman to be finished sitting down then lit the candles. "I need to get something out of the way and give you a final decision. When this contract is completed, you shall have a second form to your already existing beautiful body. It shall bear resemblance to my daemon form. There'll also be a link between us as with any daemon contract. I can sense if you're close by and thats about it. Many contracts have terms and conditions that are wacky and crazy, all i want is something simple. For you to stop killing children, is that acceptable.?" she asked.


Daniel, the boy, walked out of engineering in a short sleeve shirt and shorts on. He held his hand up to the light and decided it was too bright out here and went back inside to the finished armor. He began working on a new weapon to add to the bolter pistol and chaintana he already had crafted.


"H-hold it you! We were in battle of- ... Let him be then, I see." Ryan shook his head and sheathed his sword and began to walk towards Tomoya, after all.. he did sort of walk out on him to face Inuart and for that he wanted to show he was sorry for his rude manner.


"Apologies, I allowed the ignorance of another get the best of me. Now, what is you wish to know of me?" However, what caught Ryan's attention was the fact this barrier was well crafted, let alone he hasn't seen much of barriers like this one. This world was full of surprises.
