Avatar Adventure
Location: Corrupted Temple
Time: Night


The young anti-mage watched silently from the shadows above the group and the guardian. Her magic hidden in her shadowy field, shielding the world from her piercing green eyes. The group before her were her friends, and the Angel lying upon the floor.

The technology around her frightened the young Anti-Mage, but she kept close watch on the preceding. Hoping that Ella would be more useful in the future.


Armageddon | Nessaj

"Ezalor!" Nessaj said triumphantly as he stood up from his seat in front of the Rising Dawn refrigerator. "You finally make yourself known my old brother!" The fires inside his armor flared out and burned the metal floor. His passion reawakened, the Chaos Knight jogged haphazardly into the Hanger and looked outward at the Angel Ships and the Temple of Light he raised his cudgel triumphantly and screamed for Armageddon.

The old warhorse trotted to his side and snorted with annoyance.

Nessaj placed a great gauntlet on his snout and pointed forward, "Soon, are to ride down the light."



"THIS. IS. FRUSTRATION!!!" BlackHarte shook the Canteen with his distorted voice, "Armageddon's reports are absolutely useless! What in the world is making that little girl so blood crazy?"

The technomorph flipped the table he was working at and sent the books flying across the room and stomped off back into the engineering bay. The darkness would help breed his thoughts more properly.

Ella | Kyre

Kyre crossed her arms and stuck out her tongue, "I fell down a few holes and stalked the main group. Nothing else much." She walked forward and planted her hands on Ella and closed her eyes, "you have been doing much. Tell me what you've been up to."


Nessaj | Armageddon

"Knight Kurumu should not ride alone this day," Nessaj declared to no one in particular while mounting Armageddon. He kicked his fiery steed in the flank and took off toward Tomoya as well, brandishing his cudgle over his head and bellowing some archaic cry from deep within his armor.


A dark orange portal opened between tomoya and Nessaj, and the Chaos Knight Road through with great haste to assist his loyal knave.

I like the angel part. :P

Temple Group.
Location: Temple Stone Chamber | South America | AA Universe.
Time: Early Morning. (2 am)
Weather: Raging black lightning.

The angel soon calmed down and wiped his face. "Ugh... uh... thanks for freeing me for that awful darkness. The Commander... um... Tomoya just went crazy and took everything over with darkness and eventually he stuff me in that thing." The angel was saying to Slindis as he was patched up. His wings sprouted in front of everyone, he gazed up at the light in the ceiling gap to the outside world. "But don't worry... Michael will hear of this!" He yelled as he pierced out of the temple and flew back to Heaven.

Meanwhile, whilst everyone was down on the lower platform of the chamber examining the Guardian they had just fought. Riki had climbed to the top and saw a pedestal which held a small dark box with light creeping out of the sides. Sighing Riki turned to the group, "I found the stone!" He yelled from the stop of the tallest pillar in the room. His shoulder ached from climbing and even holding the gun. Flicking the box open, a huge bright light was exposed in the room and the Guardian came back to life but awaited a new pilot. The light eventually wore off and a pure blue stone was left, and it was some how impaled onto a small, thin dagger.

The worst part is that there was a red eyeball near the bottom of the dagger. "FOUND YOU!" Said the eyeball as it disintegrated to black lightning and crawled it's way back to the entrance of the Temple.

Outside Group.
Location: Outside of Temple | South America | AA Universe.
Time: Early Morning. (2 am)
Weather: Raging black lightning.

Seeing the boy's face indeed had accomplished his goal. "I see... they have it. Just like he said... " The Dark Archangel said as his eyes was still locked with Preacher's when suddenly the two outsiders attacked Dark Tomoya, his patience was almost at it's limits. "Very informal ... huh?" He simply with his smirk, still looking the Preacher in the eyes. Without a blink, black lightning descended and immediately made a barrier appeared to be made out of solid black unholy lightning.


Dark Tomoya said with an angered face, the dark angel yelled with such anger that it rattled the sky with rumbles and clashes. The lightning in the sky had begun to destroy the forest itself. It struck half a mile away from the temple, and it would only get closer with each strike.

Coughing up some more black liquid, Tomoya turned to the Preacher. "This... this shall be a fight between me and the Preacher... and a fair one at that!"

Meanwhile Storm had regenerated his health and pulled out his energy sword again. "No one will disturb this fight!" He said with a passionate voice.

David was checking out the Guardian just like the rest of them when Riki shouted that he had the stone.
"Great. Get your ass back down here and we'll get that to UNIT or one of them. Might be able to Weaponize it somehow." He shouted up to Riki as he opened the Box and triggered Tomoya's little trap.
As the black lighting raced out of the Chamber, David instinctively took some pot shots at it before he realized how pointless that was.
"Shit! He's onto us! Get whoever is on the ship to get it over here, ASAP! Things are about to get rough..." He said as he entered the guardian and attempted to fire it up.
"Seeing how much trouble this thing gave us, should at least do the same to Tommy-boy." He said as he closed the hatch and the Mech came to life...

Well...Not so much came to life as sputtered weakly as the Mech attempted to use David's Energy to start it.
He didn't have very much.
"OH COME ON YOU PIECE OF SHIT! WORK!" He shouted in anger before he gave up and left the machine.
"Fuck...I'm betting there is some kind of exclusion clause for us bod-standard humans...Someone get in this thing, we could use it." He ordered as Slindis got in, clearly bitter about not being able to drive it

As Melethia went to climb down, she paused as a small red light glowed in the dark pit and it seemed to be getting closer.
Then the sound of grunting as Rugal used a pair of bloody metal spikes to ascend from the pit.
After a minute of tension as he climbed up, Rugal finally reached the top and rolled himself onto solid ground, taking a sec to catch his breath.
"...I hate spike pits...Sorry I'm late...That climb is longer then it looks.." He groaned to the group, saddened that he missed the Guardian fight.
While his face was black and parts of it burned, he seemed alright, much to David's dismay.
"AGAIN!? Jesus Christ, what does it take to kill that guy!?" he exclaimed, between this and the crushing trap, he was not starting to understand how Rugal managed to get so highly respected in the global underworld.

"..LOOK OUT! IT'S STILL ACTIVE!" Rugal shouted as he saw the Guardian stand up.
Grabbing the first thing on hand, he threw the pair of spikes at the mech as he picked himself up and braced for combat.

Tailgate moved through the corridors of the ship towards Sentinel's room. She felt uneasy. These last couple of days since the incident in the asylum anomaly nest -- where every one of her friends save for Chris and Sentinel had been slaughtered -- had been strange.

She had a feeling that she found hard to describe. Like she was unsafe. It was as if someone -- or something -- was manipulating her, predicting her movements and reacting in a way as to alter them. Were her thoughts her own, or had they been influenced? She didn't like the idea.

The young girl picked up speed. She wanted to see Ba'erth again. She wanted to feel him embrace her for she knew that she would be safe there in his arms. But first she needed a word with Sentinel. Chris had been his best friend -- Java too -- and their deaths probably hit him hard. Harder than anyone could tell, what with him now hidden behind a mask.

He had felt it too. Ba'erth, that was. Tailgate didn't like that. She had a feeling of danger, she was uneasy, that was all. But he could feel something. He could sense something. And ... yet he stayed here. Was it duty? Morals? Could he simply not bear to leave innocent people in harm's way, or was it something more than that? He could step through the fabric of space as if it were a sheet of paper, yet he stayed. She wasn't complaining, though. She knew it was selfish of her, but she was glad he stayed.

She came to Sentinel's door and knocked. A masked face answered and invited her in.

"Hello, Tailgate. What's going on?"
"I just wanted to check up on you," she said, smiling weakly and leaning back against the door.
"Why, have I been acting strange lately?"
"No. That's the problem. Java, Chris and John. You three were never spoken of without the other two being mentioned. Now it's just John. And you're acting as if nothing has changed." He hesitated for a moment.
"Java isn't dead."
"What? What do you mean? We saw him die. That ... that thing killed him!"
"I hear him. He speaks to me when I'm alone. He tells me to do things. I ..." Tailgate was suddenly overcome with dread. What was Sentinel saying right now? She suddenly felt much less safe, but this time she had a reason for it.
"John, listen to me. What you're saying is crazy. He's dead. They're all dead." She started to move for the door controls. She was afraid. Sentinel looked up and straight into her deep, blue eyes.
"And we shall soon join them." He just kept looking right into her eyes, unblinking. "He told me so."

Location: Corrupted Temple of Light | South America
Time: Morning | January 2nd

Corrupted Temple of Light: Aftan | Altea | Akane | Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | David | Devon | Ella | Gabrielle | Jake | Kalastryn | Kurumu | Kud | Kyre | Mark | Melethia | Puce | Riki | Rugal | Slindis | Tajuh | Teri | Ton Ton

Teri's eyes glazed over again as the group did their individual activites in the Chamber of Light; her role not entirely nessecary at the moment. If one were to look at her closely, they would find that despite her vacant expression, her knuckles were bone white from gripping the staff with an utmost-

Teri's Mindscape: Lucifer

intensity. That was her in this moment, a concentration of anger and betrayal burning brightly, but for all the wrong reasons. Her hair whipped in the wind of that field, the storm above pouring buckets of rain on the duo. Water was her domain, after all; and covered in it, she looked deadly instead of pathetic (as humans were wont to when soaked). Her hazel eyes bore into icy blue, and she pointed; a door of ice appearing.

"Go. There's the door, show yourself the way out."


The rain bore down even harder, and her gaze did not waver, "And I would have accepted that offer about 5 minutes ago. But right now, you have upset me greatly, and I am trying to be polite in showing you the door. Now, please go. I cannot be distracted much longer."

After saying this, the mental manifestation became encased in ice as the girl's mind went back to -

The Chamber of Light

reality. Her eyes refocused again, and she could see that Rugal was back up, and covered in blood. This looked like her job again. Walking to the Crime Lord, she patted his shoulder before holding up her Medical Bag, "Where does it hurt?"

There was a slightly robotic edge to her voice, at least, moreso than usual. It was strange, almost as if she was reciting a script. Then again, it wasn't helped by the fact that the girl's face looked dispassionate and drained. Hell, it looked like she didn't even care the robot was up and about.

When Rugal went and attacked her in the Guardian, she dodged the attack from him but kept the weapons down as she communicated in a distorted mechanical voice. "Rugal, you're okay! Thank goodness... Now, how about we take this fight to Tomoya?" Even with the distorted tone, it was easy for almost anyone there to tell that Slindis was extremely relieved, but the Guardian's armor prevented the others outside seeing the crying going on inside the machine.

Melethia held Rugal tightly to try and stop further attacks. "Wheathair, you're okay! My mom went an' tore the thing apart, and I'm pretty sure she went into it." A quick glance around showed Rugal that the Paladin wasn't anywhere else, so she could be in that Guardian.

Devon started limbering up as he looked at the gap and got ready to cross it. "Rugal, Melethia's right. Slin did jump in there, so you may want to hold off on those attacks." The fact that nobody had attacked the machine was another indicator that Rugal had missed something.

He looked the Spartan up and smirked. "Don't forget me, Spartan. I'll make sure to tell your comrades about your being MIA." The man have height over him, but it just meant that it'd be easier to take him down.

"WHOA-WHOA-WHOA! Easy big guy! It's alright, Slin is operating it!" David shouted along with the others before this fight got out of hand.

Rugal froze when he heard Slindis's voice.
"Slindis!?....I-What?...She's...Inside that thing?..." He said as everyone explained that the Guardian was in fact a class of Mech.
"...An Angel Mech? Powered by it's users energy?....Interesting..." He said to himself as he walked up in front of it.
"Slin! Just if that thing does run of it's pilot's energy, be careful not to over do it. While I'm certain that you got the power to use it, I'm not sure if you'd have as much Energy to spare as who-ever was in it last. Keep that in mind." He said as Slin got a feel for the controls as Caim, Jake and Angelus showed up.
Mmmm...Think we missed out... The mute sighed as he put down his sword.

"Okay everyone, listen up. We need to get back to the ship as quickly as possible! Slin, get to knocking though some of the walls, We don't have time to muck about the same way we came in. Where's Angelus? ANGELUS!?"
The dragon in question said "I'm right here..."
"Good, second we get topside, take Riki and Kud back to the ship, I don't care what is happening outside, they need to get the stone where Tomoya can't get it. Akane, Elle, Back her up. Feel free to "

"Everyone Else: Tight formation as we follow the path Slin makes, no more traps, no more surprises, no more impostors! If the Angels are here, we'll have to force them back until the Stone is on the ship. You have you orders, lets get the hell out of the god-forsaken temple..."

Once he was gone with his speech, he allowed Teri to fix up the burns on his face.
"Thank you...Are you okay?...You seem...distant..." he noticed as the Cleric used some light healing magic.

Captcha: People like me: *Blush*

Caim, Angelus

The dragon nodded, and gave a sigh of relief when she saw that most of the crew was there (that and she knew Cadolbolg and Ton Ton were outside); and snapped a fireball into existence, providing a little bit of extra light in the Chamber. Caim could only stand around with sword in hand; wondering what his next course of action should be.


Cracking her best (fake) cheery smile, she said, "You just fell over a cliff, Mr. Bernstein, forgive me for being a bit worried!"

As she applied one of her minor healing spells to another wound, she continued, "Besides, I always look kind of serious when I'm working. I'm in the zone, as it were! Hee Hee!"

And just like that, the seriousness about her seemed to fade... Were it not for her aura. It seemed a bit deflated; and was further incriminated by a set of white knuckles. But, with the situation, questioning the Cleric further may have to wait...


Upon hearing the plan, Slindis moved to the nearest wall, and luckily after shouting to the machine, it pulled up the map of the temple. "We're taking a direct path to the entrance, people! Tighten your belts, because we won't stop until we see the sky!" After calling that out, she switched over to the chaingun on the left arm and blew a hole through the wall with concentrated gunfire as she began clearing a path for the group, wanting to get the hell out of that temple before any more rage could be awakened.


She let go of Rugal as she followed the path Slindis made, more than a bit astonished with the path the Paladin made for their exit. It would involve a bit of climbing, but the rubble left by the rapid ascent made it much easier than a direct climb. "Wheathair, we can do it!" Skipping on the rocks, she made her way up the temple.

Devon went over to Rugal, aiding Teri in the healing department. "I'm surprised you made it out of that one, Rugal, but it just shows that I don't really know much at all about you. It doesn't mean that I can't help Patch you up, though." As the wounds knitted themselves, he went over to Ella and gave her a disappointed look.

Devon casts Cure Moderate wounds on Rugal to help seal up the injuries.

David watched as Slindis used the Guardian Mech to literally blast a way out of the temple and sighed.
"...I coulda been the pilot..." He said to himself as he began to take point behind the Drow's Mech.
Still, at the very least, they were leaving and he managed to keep his souvenir: The Angel Towel he snagged from the baths.

Rugal meanwhile was back to his peak after the joint efforts of Teri and Devon.
"Thanks for that. Just Spike Pits, rather nasty, amazed I got off as lightly as I did." He said when he noticed something.
"...Teri, Where'd you get that necklace and feather?..." He asked as Teri noticed she was infact wearing them.

As Riki saw the Guardian get up and running he closed the box with the Stone of Light and stabbed the long briefcase full of Tomoya's weapons to his back and started to climb down. Once he reached the bottom he heard David's order, nodding to the soldier he walked quickly to Angelus. This time he decided not to disobey his order because he wanted himself and Kud out of this place. Nodding to Kud whom skipped along until she was beside him, the two awaited for the ride home.

Noticing the male creature talked Storm turned his attention from his friend to Tajuh. "You won't touch me or Tomoya... because I lost enough friends today as it is!" He said to the male and he brandished his energy sword and a single pistol. It seemed that Storm was one undisturbed by the darkness which had corrupted everyone else. "Why not just help your friends instead of worrying about me... right now he is my only worry." Storm said and looked at Tomoya.

Time: Morning | January 2nd

Corrupted Temple of Light: Aftan | Altea | Akane | Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | David | Devon | Ella | Gabrielle | Jake | Kalastryn | Kurumu | Kud | Kyre | Mark | Melethia | Puce | Riki | Rugal | Slindis | Tajuh | Teri | Ton Ton

"...Teri, Where'd you get that necklace and feather?..."

Genuine confusion crossed the Cleric's face when asked and she began with, "What are you tal-?"

That was when Ella charged in and burnt herself on the necklace. The Cleric watched all of these events in terror and could barely move until the deed was done, and she backed away, and towards Angelus and Caim, an incantation barely formed in the back of her mind should the Succubus attempt anything again,

"I don't know! I wasn't even aware I had these things until - "

"If you need me, just call for me and I'll be there."

The Cleric paused when that voice came into her memories, and she suddenly realized where her new possessions had come from. However, she was still a little confused as to why she was attacked by the Succubus. She reached for the feather and carefully put it in an empty vial from her satchel before saying,

"Look, I think you might be mistaken. I'm sorry you're hand's hurt, um... I bet there's salve on the ship where we can fix that up. I'll be with these guys till then."

With that, she hurried away with Caim, Angelus and the two teens (Riki and Kud) as they began their walk to the surface; clearly trying to make some distance between herself and the Succubus. The dragoness looked over her shoulder at the wounded demon, and only glared before leading her charges along the way...

I noticed.

She continued rapidly ascending through the temple, becoming slightly drained from the sheer amount of energy being put out as she paved a path through the temple. "We're about halfway through here! Just keep coming, and we'll be out of here in no time!"

If nothing else, she knew how to make a clear path of retreat for her team.

He tried apologizing to Teri for Ella's actions. "Really sorry, Teri, it's just Ella here's got more than a few problems with her father. Now if she would just follow me for a second so I could talk to her in private..." He gave the Succubus a look that showed that he needed to talk to her in private.

As she climbed up, she picked up a few samples of the metal from the now-ruined traps and put them into one of her pouches to take a look at later.


He eyed up the Spartan, mentally breaking down the likely attack patterns he'd try to use against the man. "Here's the thing: in order for me to do that, they need a safe avenue to exit that temple. We both know that won't be happening while those drops continue, so unless you'd like to step aside and allow that, then we've got some problems." Although his tone was calm, it was clear that he'd not allow Storm to interfere with the operation. More importantly, the Angel databases had relatively little information on Tajuh, and what little there was on him was kept under lock and key.

David was in awe of the power of the Guardian as it blasted its way though the hard stone of the temple.
"Bloody hell! Next time I'm driving! I don't care if I need to bring a Car battery with me! I HAVE to try this sometime!" He exclaimed as they forced their way though the old passages that gave them so much trouble on the way in.
It was then Teri joined his team on their way topside, She certainly seemed off and Angelus reckoned Ella was the reason why.
"Hey, You two, plenty of time for chewing people out once we are out, Keep up!" He said to the pair of them as he followed the path of Slindis and Melethia.

Rugal found the events surrounding the necklace and Ella rather strange but that would have to wait for another time.
"You can talk with her Devon, but don't take too long, god only knows how much time we have. Get topside as soon as you can. Dismissed." He said before he ran over into the escape tunnel.

Angelus, Caim, David, Kud, Riki, Slindis, Teri

Angelus' gaze turned away from the offending woman upon being acknowledged by David,

"As you say, mortal.. Come, Teri. We've no time to dawdle here."

Teri gave a quick nod, and as they advanced, she tucked the necklace under her robes. If seeing it was going to cause trouble, then she'd have to hide it. If Lucifer was really the one to bequeath this to her, The Cleric could only ask herself this... Why?

This train of thought was quickly squelched when she saw Slindis tear into some more rock with the Guardian suit, and marveled at the power the suit commanded, "I wonder if it functions more like an Eva or a Gundam..?"

"This... this shall be a fight between me and the Preacher... and a fair one at that!"

The Preacher tutted slightly and shook his head, "I see then, violence is unavoidable. I am truly sorry child." He pulled out his blade, now beginning to become enveloped in a feint crimson aura. The area now began to darken, except for himself and the fallen angel, almost as if the two were being highlighted. The Preacher slashed downward as he began to walk towards Tomoya. The aura around the sword now began to appear around the angel's feet. Befroe he could react the attack struck.

Northswain's Strike.


Dark Tomoya
The Dark Angel recoiled from the Preachers attack, bringing his arms up to protect himself.
He had a pained expression, it was clear that it hurt him, but it faded into a Evil Grin.
"That's all?...Here, let me show you how it's done!" He boasted as he brought his fist down into the ground, sending a electrical current into the ground.
Like Preachers attack, it appeared before he could react and a cage made of Black Lighting formed over him.
"Get out of this!" He taunted as he had the cage quickly close in on itself, intending to crush its prisoner.

Group in general
Within record time, Slindis managed to burst though the hall not far from Storm and Tajuh, much to the surprise of the Spartan's Men.
"...A Guardian!?...Wonderful....ALL UNITS ATTACK! THEY MUST NOT LEAVE WITH THE STONE!" He ordered the remainder of his squad and they descended on the Group.

Time: Morning | January 2nd

Corrupted Temple of Light: Devon | Ella

Devon began talking to Ella in the same tone a disappointed family member would use towards one o their siblings. "Ella, when I helped you get out of Hell, it wasn't so you could go and try to break up relationships here. I know what you are, but what you're doing is abusing the trust that I put in you. Now, before you go and try saying that it didn't happen, I know what I saw. And we both know Puce is Kurumu's fated lover, so trying to break them up, no matter how long it was for, is basically saying that you want your only sister dead."

He looked her in the eyes, not really caring what she planned as long as the message went through. "So please, try to show me that the trust I put into you and your father's words wasn't horribly misplaced. I'd rather not lose hope for you, but when you're willing to break up your sister and kill her for whatever plot you have going, why should I keep believing in you?"

Group in general

Upon seeing the last bits of block fall to expose sky, Angelus called out, "Caim, the mask!"

Fishing it out of the Armory, Caim handed the dragon the aforementioned item, and Angelus ran outside, threw the mask in the air, and set herself aflame. It was quicker than trying to remove all the irritating pieces of human clothing; and by the time the mask came back down, the woman was stark naked; give or take a few scarps. Placing the mask on her face, the woman bent over as she began to grow and change into her former self.

As all that went down, Caim had already begun to charge with The Angel Killer equipped, the scarlet blade singing in the air the moment blood met blade.

Teri decided to cover the kid's tracks towards the dragon by calling upon the Lord in Celestial: "Cover our tracks as we wade into war! Mists of obfuscation, come down!"

Thus, a bank of fog encircled and covered the area around the transforming dragon and teens, and Teri hoped that this would be ample enough cover for Angelus and the kids to begin their ascent.

Teri has used: Fog Cloud! Spreading 20 feet across and 20 feet high, this fog provides total concealment! The fog obscures all sight, including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. A creature within 5 feet has concealment (attacks have a 20% miss chance). Creatures farther away have total concealment (50% miss chance, and the attacker can't use sight to locate the target).

Following that, Teri began to ready another spell, this time; a Shield for a front line fighter.


"Get out of this!"

The Preacher grinned, raising his left hand, his fist closed. "Gladly." He flicked his hand open, and scattered the black lightning, before continuing his slow approach. Tomoya could tell the man would be able to evade or block any attempt at flanking with lightning speed. The sword began to glow again.......

Dark Tomoya
Persistent old bastard... Tomoya thought as he watched the glowing sword.
A smirk appeared as he summoned up the Electric Cage again, this time having it encase him, opting to use it defensively.
The Lighting was nothing to him, but it was a different story for Preacher.
"Now what old man!?" He said as he rushed in to gut him, knowing his cage would prevent a counterattack.

As the group set out to engage the enemy, David went about providing covering fire for Caim as he used his Angel Killer blade on Storm's men, hitting every shot dead on and ensuring Caim could be as reckless and offensive as he wished without fear of being ambushed.
His keen eye was mostly unaffected by the fog.
"I SWEAR TO GOD I'M BECOMING A MUSLIM AFTER ALL THIS IS OVER!" He shouted, clearly this mission was going to change his views on Religion forever.

Rugal merely walked into the battle, casually throwing the odd punch or kick with deadly results to whomever it connected with.
Every time anyone went to engage him, he reacted and they fell down, simple as that.
It was then he noticed that the Dark Angel himself was among them and the Preacher was fighting him one on one.
What the hell is that senile fool doing!?


"Now what old man!?"

"I think I'll have a bit of a read, son." Keeping his sword ready, he pulled out his book again and began reading. As he muttered different phrases, the black lightning began to dissipate, becoming too weak to stop The Preacher's next attack. The Dark Angel then directed the lightning at the man, but he struck his blade at the bolt, the lightning turning from black to white. The Preacher then hurled the purified electricity at the angel.

Dark Tomoya
Dammit! Who is this guy!? Tomoya thought as he parried Preacher's electrical attack with his sword, plotting his next move.
Once Preachers assault was finished, he stabbed his sword into the ground and held his hand up in the air.
"SHAZAM!" He laughed as the ground began to glow underneath the two of them.
A Massive Black Thunderbolt struck down from the skies above with enough power to fry anything near him as indicated by the glowing ground.

Seeing the massive group charging towards her companions, she looked at the controls to get a better feel for how the machine worked. It was still a good bit beyond her compared to the exit path she had cleared earlier, but she started up with leading the shots to hit the angels much like she would a bow. Due to the massive difference in firing speeds, it took her a bit to get the guiding right. Although not as deadly as the Guardian earlier at range, she still made up for it on the ground with the thrusts and stabs of her chainsaw bladed right hand. "Scatter them!"

For his Part, Tajuh intercepted Storm as he went to aid the attack with a single blade quickly pointed at him. "I gave you the option, but now it's time for me to do what I came here for." He followed up with slashing with his offhand to provoke a guard with the Energy Sword, then stabbed the Spartan's pistol with his mainhand blade to devastate the gun's barrel.

"While I draw breath, you shall not lay a single finger on any member of the Rising Dawn."

The angels that closed on her position ignored the twelve year old elf with a longsword and flask with a mix of a murky brown and lavender liquid in each hand. This was really the best their enemy could come up with? As they focused on the more dangerous threats, she threw the bottle deep into the ranks of the group, sending glass shards and a violently corrosive acid mix in a ten meter radius to badly burn a chunk of the enemies. "That's whatcha get, kinslayers." Seizing the opportunity, she began slashing the Angels with the extremely sharp blade crackling with electricity.


Foolish Child.... The Preacher intercepted the lightning strike with his blade, once again purifying the attack. This time however, he used the cleansed electricity to charge his next attack. The sword struck the ground, instantly conjuring a holy blade which struck with the force of a train.

Hallowed Bolt.


Dark Tomoya
After seeing his "Air Strike" Lighting wasn't working, Tomoya quickly moved from where the sword would strike and lunged at the Preacher, wishing to find out if his skills with a sword were anywhere as good as his skill with holy power.

The Guardian was clearly over-powering the enemy en mass and the Healing Factor of the Mech made any and all attacks moot.
At this point, some soldiers, stuck between death at Tomoya's whim and death by Guardian Mech, decided to try their luck in the corrupted jungle, fleeing from battle.
Still, there was more where they came from.

David was lining up a shot when Melethia ran past after a Angel burning in acid with her longsword.
The fact he saw that happen caused him to stop and say "...So this is my life...I need to drink more.
Once that nugget of wisdom was stored and filed, He resumed his covering fire of Caim.

Rugal too was in a state of shock, THIS! Was what that old coot Preacher could do.
Suddenly, nearly being thrown out an airlock didn't seem as bad.
He also casually snapped the neck of a passing trooper.

Location: Corrupted Temple of Light | South America
Time: Morning | January 2nd

Corrupted Temple of Light: Devon | Ella

She noticed that the young man got oddly uncomfortable after that nickname she gave him and tried his best to hide the wave of emotions it brought to the front. "Hey, do you mind not calling me that name again? It's not exactly what I need to be focusing on right now. What's more important is you trying to pull a Yoko Ono on the group." He mentally hoped that she didn't see through his bluff as went back to the flirting.

On her asking him to make someone fall in love with her, he shook his head and spoke in a subdued tone. "Ella. I'm not going to force someone to fall in love with you. What kinda guy do you take me for? It's not even been a night since we got here, and I've got a pretty strong feeling almost all of the guys here are spoken for." A look up at the long climb up encouraged him to turn to Ella. "Mind giving me a hand up there?"


The Cleric focused her spell, chanting, "In the beginning there was the word, and the word became flesh. In this time of need, The word becomes force and force begets strength!"

Teri hit a hotkey on her Tablet, and a small scroll appeared, and then disintegrated; a glow covering her hand. Slapping it on the King of Fighter's back, she shouted

"Snap out of it, Mr. Bernstein! Now get in there and don't let yourself be showed up by the others! You wouldn't want that, now would you?"

From what Rugal could see, a shimmering field covered his skin; making him look vaguely iridescent in the torch-light.

Teri shouted, "It's a protective field! Get to it!"


Angelus shook her head with pleasure; happy to be in her proper form again, as she waited for Riki and Kud to get on her back. She wanted to be in the air again, and not just because it was her mission. After being in that gods-forsaken temple, anywhere but this place was a good thought.

To her surprise, she heard the sound of fire; and the smell of fox and flames filled the air.

"Ah, Akane! Here to help these little ones up, eh? Let's hurry along then. The sooner the better."


Caim... Was being Caim. Cutting swathes into soldiers with his Angel Killer and a dark grin on his face, Caim was in his element once again.

Ton Ton and Cadolbolg

"Hey, Cadolbolg! I think I see your dad! Wanna help him out? I bet we could help out in thinning those numbers!"

Without a roar from the turtle, the duo flew in, and Ton Ton leaped onto a soldier, putting his Knife straight into the jugular of one of the poor saps.

Those words were just what he needed to take his mind off the Preacher
"You're right...I don't..." He said before he turned around and saw a trio of Angel Troopers behind him.
A quick neck crack and Rugal engaged them with his Slashing Aura, a brief display of blood and guts and he was marching in to clean up.
They were dead before they hit the ground.

David | Jake
As David lined up another shot, Jake finally got out of the temple. He was nowhere near as fit as anyone else in the crew, being a nerd who only kept his body in basic shape. Seeing the master sniper, Jake figured at least he wouldn't be quite so useless hanging with the other relatively normal guy in the crew. Making the dash, Jake stopped and dropped to one knee to steady his shots with his M4.
"G'day David! Who're we covering?" Jake said as he steadied his breathing so as not to throw his shots off.

Angelus | Akane
Akane gave a little smile at the Dragon. Angelus seemed a tad warmer towards her today...

"You're taking the little ones straight to the airship yes? I'll fly cover for you then! Looks like my Knights are already in the fray, they should keep us clear for now I think!" She said, even as she grabbed Kud and threw her up onto the Dragon's neck, where she clung for dear life. The little girl was terrified! Riki followed before Akane could grab him too, but not before giving the Kitsune a foul look.
"Okay kids, hang on tight to Angelus! We'll keep you safe! Let us all fight, that's our job right now!"

The Kitsune gave a tap behind the ear to the Dragon before making a running leap off the temple edge. She disappeared from view only to re-appear second later, her tails alight with brilliant blue flames as she picked up speed and altitude. Her sword was back in her hand, a fireball ready in the other.

David | Jake | Teri

After pouring out a water bottle to unleash Squishy upon the troops, Teri called out, "Long time, no see, Jake! Hope you've been faring well!"

Holding up her staff to focus, the Cleric called to the Water elemental in Aquan, "My friend, I shall be granting you a covering of water! When it arrives, go into your vortex form!"

The elemental blurbled in reply, and began to position itself as Teri chanted her spell, "Bring unto us your cleansing waters, Lord! Strengthen your children with this gift!"

On cue, 10 gallons of water poured on the water elemental; who began to grow in size; whipping around in a dangerous vortex for those who dared come near. Several of the soldiers found themselves swept in the creatures depths, and gasped as the air escaped their lungs.

Despite the fact that soldiers were dying by her hands, the Cleric took solace in the thought that God would provide mercy to these wayward Angels. After all, they could have easily been deceived by a false and cruel Shepard.

Angelus | Akane

Upon seeing Akane return, the dragon flapped her wings, throwing herself into the air. The fog had done it's job well to cover their progress, and Angelus was 20 feet in the air before the soldiers even got sight of her. Of course, those who dared attack her were quick to be blasted with a homing ball of fire from the dragon or face the wrath of the Kitsune. In short, the duo were ascending quickly to the skies above.

Outside Group.
Location: Outside of Temple | South America | AA Universe.
Time: Early Morning. (2 am)
Weather: Raging black lightning.

Tomoya & Preacher.
Within the lightning barrier.

Seeing the escaping soldier Tomoya's smirk had changed into a scowl. "FOOLS!" He said as he waved his hand and the lightning scatted across the jungle hit the dark angels, immediately turning them into lightning particles which flowed back into Tomoya. More black lightning came out of his hand to form his dark katana, still stained with the blood from New York.

"Lets see if your sword kills are good..." Tomoya said, in a blink of an eye he already swung at Preacher he looked ever ready. The black lightning was lashing out with anger from the sword.

Storm & Tajuh

As the angel bodies were laid across the entrance of the temple, their bodies were transferred into black orbs which quickly disintegrated back to the angel fleet and their motherships.

Losing his gun, Storm through his pistol to the side. "You should know that killing isn't... everything." Storm laughed as he lunged with his bulky armor, Tajuh avoided but Storm ended up cutting a stone pillar in half with the sword. "Alien tech you see... Alpha... boost mode." Storm asked Alpha and soon the boosters on his armor were warmed up.

David was in the middle of a reload once Jake showed up and took out a few more Angels.
"Just shoot anyone trying to sneak up on Caim and we might make it out of here alive!" He ordered as the pair of them covered the Mute's rear as he cut though the hordes, the pair of shooters getting splash back from the blood bath.
"....So how are you!?" He asked as he kept firing.

Rugal was calmly cutting down the inferior trained soldiers as the battle raged on, not even bothering to block thanks the shield that Teri gave him.

As the Drow put a MASSIVE dent in Tomoya's forces, a plot was hatched from above to try and get rid of her before she killed them all.

Up the sky above the battlefield, 2 low ranking grunts got an idea.
Grabbing as much explosive ordinance as they could, Dynamite, C4, Semtex, Frag Mines, I could do on, but I won't, but I could.
"You sure this is a good idea? I mean...Friendly Fire and-"
"Hey, Either this bitch dies or Tomoya kills all of us!"
Thus they went down to the Drop Pods and began stuffing it to make their "Bomb".

Since she didn't want to allow the enemies to get too comfortable with the acid, she took a moment in the fight to switch over to some incendiary flasks to continue disorienting the angels as she slashed at their ranks. "When are these kinslayers gonna learn?" The worst of the attacks that were aimed at her were blunted by the chainmail shirt, but against the constant enemies landing, she was beginning to get tired.

He ducked and weaved around the attacks from Storm, getting a stab in when he could. "Powered armor, then. Bit difficult to work around, certainly, but you're wrong if you think that will ensure your victory." As the Spartan's attacks continued to come, he took note of the man's technique which was a mix of power and speed.

She began to get concerned about the way the attack seemed to not relent and tried to keep the attention away from Angelus. Judging from the forces attacking her, it was clear that it was having some effect.
