Nihilim

[BR-F25] And a Shadow Attend (Labyrinth Guardian)

Recommended Posts

A sharp screech blared through the arena, reverberating harshly off of the solid walls in a pervasive echo. The players would feel the air vibrate with the intensity of that roar, the ringing in their ears as it finally subsided blocking out all other sound. As the ringing slowly dissipated, they would begin to hear it. Faintly at first, like the distant fluttering of a stealthy crow. The noise would grow, creating a flapping cacophony that would ripple along the walls with the descent of the dragon. And then, a deafening crash as the dragon's limp body clapped against the floor, the force of the impact scattering the bolts that lay there.

Here, Nihilim would remain. Stunned, its piercing eyes staring indignantly into those of its many adversaries, chagrin riding its indiscernible expression as it did what it could to move. The bolt had struck a critical area, weakening the creature and paralyzing it for the time being. It knew the assault was coming, but it hadn't the faculties to do anything about it. For now, all it could do was wait.

Macradon was sparking with enthusiasm, the fight was finally starting. “I haven’t felt this pumped since … actually it’s been quite a while since I’ve felt like this.” he thought for himself with glee spreading through his body. He hadn’t felt this in the event boss battles, he hadn’t felt this in the boss raids … he was a bit too hyped. With clenched fists around the handle of his sword, Macradon watched the dragon fall from grace as the bolt hit it, well even. As the dragon landed with a thunk, Macradon did not take any time waiting, he wanted to engage into the fight right away, even if he did take away most of his advantages by not going into hiding and then striking with a heavier blow, but this was fine as well.

 With a rush of speed, Macradon used his <Charge> skill to quickly close the distance between him and the fallen beast with Belphegor following behind him while roaring out “Penguin Sentai Squad, It’s Morphin’ Time! Dino Charge Ready!. With a single strike, Macradon cleaved into the dragon while Belphegor bit down onto it, keeping it in position for Macradon to deal an adequate amount of damage, though no Phase or Holy proc, which could’ve been nice in a situation like this.

Looking around himself, he would look at all the bolts lying around on the ground where the dragon had collapsed after the bolt had hit it “Maybe we should bring some with us back to the ballista if we have the time for it …” he thought but nodded that off as he just awaited the rest of the party to deal their blows at the mighty dragon.

I grin seeing the bolt fire out and pierce the dragon's body as i could see it slowly starting to descend towards the ground. Though with the fall of the dragon the sounds of a pained scream echoes off the enclosed walls of the arena as i grit my teeth as the sound blasts against my ear drums as i look towards the dragon waiting for it to crash avoiding the temptation to raise my arms to cover my ears from this deafening noise. A stare towards the beast as noise slowly returns to me as i can finally hear the rapid flutter of its wings as it slams into the ground as i take a deep breathe and shake my head. A faint dull ringing and buzz remaining within my hearing. I see the beast just not move not making a single amount of action to try and get back up as i grin a bit as i quickly slam the pommel of my blade against my shield activating the howl skill. You aren't the only one who can make some noise. Now here is the roar of Hestia! I shout back towards the beast as the shout is times with me slamming the pommel of the blade against my shield three times. I stare down the dragon with a smile upon my face as i then take a quick glance around myself trying to take notes of where extra bolts are and the state of the ballista which seems to be in perfect condition. 'Okay so it isn't one and done thankfully. Though that does mean we might get deafened again if we have to shoot it down again' i think to myself as a slight wonder echoes in the back of my head wondering if i'm going to become deaf from staying here.

Action: Howl +4 hate to me.

With the combined efforts of the players, the large bolt they fired brought the dragon down to the ground, too stunned to fight back. Nodding to himself, he would bring his hand tentatively to the hilt of his own katana, Raikiri. His eyes would make contact with Baldur's and he offered the older man a smile. "Let's slay us another dragon" His eyes cast upon the area in front of him, towards the dragon. With the dragon being down its weaker areas were exposed to them. He closed his eyes for a second, the smile wiping itself from his face as he focused himself, body and mind on the battle. The world around him would blur, leaving his target the only item in perfect focus. His eyes opened and he darted forward, his body almost becoming a blur as he crossed the distance between him and his target. Exhaling, his weapon would be freed from its sheath, a bright blue light flashing as it happened. A blue flamed danced on the edge of his weapon as his own ki exploded from his body. The flames would subside into the weapon, leaving the weapon sparking with a yellow light. Keeping his forward momentum, his strike would cut into the scales of his opponent, creating a red gash along the dragon's side. Red shards danced into the air and his attack would finish. "Lightning Flash," he would breathe out as his attack ended.  He would sheathe his weapon, the metal hissing as it slid back into its home. He spun on his heel and leapt backwards, creating distance between himself and the dragon that would surely be recovering any moment. The electric that resided in his eyes during the attack faded and the color returned to him.

The blonde watched as the dragon dropped from its seat of reign in the skies and instinctively covered her ears and gritted her teeth at its thunderous roar. By the time she recovered, she would watch the other party members charge in and attack de now defenceless drake. Was she the only one hesitant about this? With a sigh, she would watch even the self-entitled red dragoness getting excited over the prospect of slaying the noble animal. Ariel only hoped that they wouldn't meet the same fate as the minotaurs that tried to do the same before them.

She took a low stance and charged towards their target. Now, she has to push back her reluctance and commit with the rest. Using her charge skill, Ariel leaves a dark crimson streak behind as she faced their foe and gracefully unleashes her strongest sword art upon it. Despite her doubts, her muscle memory acted flawlessly and with help of the sword arts' system assist she had dealt the maximum damage output as black flames engulfed the golden tip of her new spear, as a sizeable chunk Nihilim's health bars was removed after her attack.

Zandra saw the bolt fly thru the air, almost in slow motion as it pierced the mighty beast and pinned it to the ground. Zita had kept her distance to the reptile, she knew there was nothing she could habe done against this giant. But now it was stuck to the ground, not only that, it was also stunned, not beeing able to move. She let out a loud cry that echoed on the battlefield before she folded her wings close and dived towards the ballista, acceleration increased dramatically.
"Hahaha!!!" Zandra laughed at the dragon. She felt the fire in her berserk heart grow. Her eyes was locked on the dragon. Finally they was figthing an worthy opponent. She charged up her strongest single target sword art. As she herd the swish from her feathered familiar above her, ahe activated her charge skill. The axewoman saw her party members attack the enemy. She looked for an opening where her friends wasnt blocking her. Her eyes fell on his leg and smile grew on Zandras lips. She activated the screw dimension attack. Her powerful axe flew in a half circle and stroked the leg from above, dealing a large amount of damage. The power was so strong, it created a shockwave, dealing the damage again. But not only that, Zandras burning axe spread the fire over to the dragon, applying both fire and poison to the enemy. There was no fallen this time, but Zandra was still satisfied with her attack.
Zita on the other hand, had attacked where the humans didnt reached. She had pecked and scratched on the thin skin that was the wings, sharing the berserk spirit of her tamer.

With a resonant sound the dragon fell to the field in front of them and the gaijin samurai's allies were quick to respond. Baldur, in spite of himself, felt a bit unsportsmanlike to take advantage of their stunned foe before it had a chance to attack them. That momentary emotion, however, was never more than a background thought. Baldur, set up across for Morg, <<Charged>> up his <<San Ge>> and felt the force wrap around and emanate from the handle of the <<Muramasa>>. The cursed blade desired to be used, and so Baldur's hand gripped it. Once everyone had cleared the right of way, Baldur released the sword art.

As Baldur drew the <<Muramasa>> the crimson, almost blood red of the sword art light exploded from the saya, growing in intensity the more of the blade he bared, until the form of Baldur melted into the color, and they became a streak of blue, gold, and red light. He closed the distance in what felt like a heartbeat, the first slash tearing into the snout of the dragon, before Baldur once again blurred to the side. It looked like two of Baldur appeared to the side of the Dragon and the slashed parallel to the floor at the same time, the luminous crimson bands tearing into the darkened creature. Baldur's form kicked off, sending him high into the air, only to bring the blade down in a massive overhand attack, bearing the length of the cursed sword into the Dragon, and then leaping back a few feet away as the post-motion animation held him helpless for another heartbeat.

The health bar of the dragon began to plunge, and Baldur was confident they had this fight handled.

The dragon’s enormous body lay lifeless, save for its eyes, which closely followed each attacker. The dark pits remained devoid of emotion as each hit landed, crimson gashes sparking against black scales. Only when the final blow came, and the brown-haired player moved back to his comrades did those obsidian eyes flash with renewed vigor. My turn, they seemed to say.

Nihilim climbed to its feet, then shook its mass like a dog ridding its fur of excess moisture. The sight might have been comical, were it not for the murderous expression, and the way the pale light gleamed on the beast’s sharp teeth. A low rumble rolled from deep in its throat as it eyed each individual player. Its gaze lingered the longest, coming to rest entirely, on the raven-haired tank named Hestia. Something about her infuriated Nihilim, far more than any of the other miniature humans. She would be its first victim. With startling speed for such a sizable reptile, the guardian shifted to its haunches. A clawed hand shot forward, raking red across Hestia’s armor, before being withdrawn once more. Nihilim’s tail swished back and forth, creating an eerie crunching sound as it dragged across the hard ground. It was as if it invited the woman to retaliate, a true battle of strength, for who could possibly hope to beat a dragon?

But the others drew nearer, as well. Surely they knew not of the dragon's power, else they would keep a safe distance. Instead, they closed in like a pack of ravenous coyotes, each ready to take their next nip. They would need to be educated.

A scarlet glow roiled within the gigantic reptilian's gullet, worming its way up the creature's throat as the shine slowly grew in intensity. By the time it had made its way to the beast's crooked maw, tangerine rays were peaking through the slits between its teeth and painting the arena a deep gold. Molten hot flames spilled from the the dragon's mouth and pooled against the floor beneath before exploding outward in every direction. It crept across the floor with much the speed and nimble skipping of a family of blazing rabbits, each lick of the flame threatening to clutch the players' HP gauges evaporate them away.

They need not fear the dragon. But they would respect it.

Editor Notes:

Spoiler

- The burn damage attached to these attacks is not considered a status, or a DoT. It is additional damage to the attack itself, which takes place immediately after the initial damage of the attack. Out of the consumables used by the party, only Snowfrost had a mitigating effect against it.

The deadline for this round is 72 hours [Feb 13th at 7:12 PM GMT-7], or when all players have posted.
As in a standard rotation, each player may post once.

He spun on his heel, watching the great dragon slowly rise from his position on the ground. A low rumble seemed to emanate from the beast, its eyes bearing down on each of them. After the dragon seemed to analyze them, it moved straight onto the offensive, its claws raking forth and striking Hestia. It's speed was impressive for a monster of such scale, though it seemed to focus on the tank. The dragon didn't quite seem done however, a red light coming from the maw of the monster as a heat began to seethe from it. "A fire attack?" Molten hot flames spewed from the monsters mouth, spraying everywhere as well as pooling on the very floor they tread upon. Gritting his teeth, Jonathan would act fast darting to a large rock that would remove him from the ground that was far to dangerous to walk upon. "An interesting mechanic, I wonder if the ninth-floor boss was anything like this" he would mutter to himself. 

He focused himself once more, the majority of color fading from his vision as everything around him seemed to slow down, everything becoming acute. Recovering from the dragon's attack faster than his allies, a blue light would emanate from his body as a torrent of aura was released with his emotions before it calmed into a sparking yellow along his weapon. He burst forward, the speed making him a blur among the battlefield, leaping from rock to rock, dodging the spray of fire that covered the molten battle field. Finally reaching his target once more, the blonde leapt straight forward at the dragon, kicking upwards off of it to propel him high into the air. At his highest point, he shifted his position in the air, honing his focus to the maximum. A golden light shone throughout the battlefield as his energy and blade became one. Tendrils of yellow energy crackled around his weapon and into the air, a heat being produced similar to that of the molten ground. His form flickered in the air as he shot back down towards the dragon like lightning, hitting it directly at full force. Electricity arced around the opponents battles, the force breaking one of the dragon's scales on impact. A tempest of air shot out form every direction, causing the molten lava on the ground to splash like the waves in the ocean. The hum in the air would quiet and Jonathan would leap off of the dragon to another rock, escaping its future attack.

Macradon would chuckle at the display of a big, large, dominating figure like a dragon would do a quick dog wiggle to give itself enough vigor to stand up and fight against the party. The knight raised his sword and went into a defensive stance, waiting for the big beast to do its thing. When the dragon quickly moved in it displayed a variety of attacks, all centered upon the one with most hate, in this instance their tank had done a great job. Hestia was thankfully a great tank, she has been doing a lot to really stand in the frontlines to take blow after blow. The blows seemed heavy, but being the trooper she were, Hestia took the blows like a champ.

After the quick blows, the dragon would show some fire that it had not done before. Charging up its fiery breath, tongues enveloped the battlefield, going everywhere onto the party, dealing damage over time with heavy hits, just enough to get out of bounds of Macradon’s battle healing, which was quite impressive for an AOE attack that lasted over time do. Macradon would chuckle “Nice one.” he said and went in for another attack “Taste a bit of this!” he said and slashed onto the big dragon with another heavy blow, dealing a good chunk of damage as his holy blade shined its light and tore through the digital dragon scales.

“Seems like this big bad boy packs a punch, but we should all be able to prevail, there should not be anything holding us back, this reptilian frontal assault does not stand near us, the frontline of Aincrad. Our resilience stands stronger than these flames, stronger than the might of the dragon!” he roared after his attack, hoping to keep the party’s morale as high as he possibly could.

Zandra watched as the dragons healthbar dropped, he almost lost the whole first bar. ‘’Damn, if we keep this up, we will be finished before we even start.’’ She said loud enough for any of her teammates to hear. Thou what happened next could turn the tide. The dragons throat lit up before it covered the area in fire. Zandra saw as half the party got hit by the vicious dragons attack and the burning flames. Thou Zandra wasn’t one of them. Because of this, her eyes started to burn and she grit her teeths. ‘’Don’t worry, I am still myself. I will heal you guys as soon as your healthbar turns yellow. I wont let anyone die.’’ She went quiet for a few moments. ‘’Except that dragon.’

Her eyes went back to the dragon and she grinned at it. Her armor’s flame licked the berserkers body. ‘’Hey tiny lizard, I am here, why didn’t you shot me too with that fire of yours?’’ she charged up her screw dimension sword art. ‘’Come on, hit me already! Like Im hitting YOU!’’ and with that she activated it. Black smoke surrounded the axe and flames licked the blade as it cleaved thru the dragons skin. The smoke flowed into him, dealing more damage. Thou nothing seemed to happen with the flames. ‘’Guys! It seems like he is immune to status effects. My stun, burn or toxic venom haven’t done anything on him.’’ She shouted to her teammates as Zita kept scratching and pecking the dragons wings.

The sight and sound of the ancient beast rising was one to behold and begged the question of if this was like what Tesseleth was. Having only heard vague details from what she had heard when traversing the floors and catching bits and pieces from the players walking about that most likely heard it from an info broker somewhere and at somepoint. A dragon a mighty beast that supposedly put up a fight against the frontlines in some fashion or the other the details having been unclear on how it thought, but what it was is unmistakably dragon to every report that had been heard. The rumble of it's body moving and then followed of it shaking like it was a dog trying ot shake off water from its fur caused her to smile and chuckle a bit since it was a ridiculous sight no matter how a person could ever dare to try and justify it as otherwise.

Then the sound of air being sliced comes to her ears as she watches a giant claw come down towards her as she braces her stance with her shield in position to intercept some of the claw. The sound of nails scraping across her shield and then against her armors rings in her ears as she just grits through the horrible noise with her familiar alongside her pushing against her when the impact comes to keep her on her feet against a thing such as thing. After the claw passes by a sigh of relief escapes her lips as a faint smile appears as she glances at her health and then grins since it wasn't that much damage. Is that the best you got i am still standing fight me like you are actually trying to kill me! If you can't beat me you could never kill the best warriors in Aincrad who stand before you! She shouts towards the dragon activating howl at the same time adding a force in her voice as she stares down the mighty beast as the dragon lets fire come and soak around the ground hitting herself and her allies. doing the only thing she can and just toughing through it with a grin upon her face. 'Thank goodness i have snowfrost activated. This could've hit harder.' Hestia thinks to herself with a smile as she gets within her defensive stance her shield ready to take the initial brunt of the damage and inflcit some thorns with her familiar providing a bit of a push with its weight to balance herself out to avoid being thrown across the arena. Keeping her shield close to her chest over her heart with her free hand prepping to activate energy or first aid to anybody who could need it.

Watching the dragon shake the dizziness away reminded the blonde of the times she had to deal with a wet Kimba... she'd grimace at the recollection and steel herself while inadvertently sighing: "not another one..." She shook her head to banish the association and was thankful that bathing KImba was only a matter of unfortunate happenings rather than a hygiene issue in this game  Looking around, she would see everyone get really into the role of the dragon slayer, except for herself. Mac trying to motivate the rest, Zandra and Hestia both taunting the beast while Morgenstern seemed to be more focused on his own flashy thing. She turned towards Baldur and pointed her thumb towards the dragon, she was about to call out a attack plan. 
Gritting her teeth, she tried to avoid the incoming wave of molten rock, using every bit of a acrobatics but failing unceremoniously as her whole right side got covered in lava. Intense heat assailed her senses and she was for once that the game's unrealistic design. She took a few moments to not shout, out of frustration.

As she recovered, with a annoyed expression she continued with her plan. "Let's each take a flank @Baldur. " dashing towards the dragon's left side, trying to damage its underbelly as it was still recovering from the previous attack. As soon as she got into the position she was aiming for, she slid on the ground below the dragon and activated her sword art. The earlier frown turned into a smirk as she saw the critical marker added to her hits. She'd hope it was distracted enough by the rest so that she could remove herself from there or risk being literally stomped on.

The dragon opened it's giant maw and spewed forth fire. Not quite the ray of fire one normally expected, but instead as if the creature born of darkness were trying to flood the area with fire itself, burning everything in its path. Some were able to get away, and some not. He saw his kohai, Jonathan, already on the counter attack, and Mac and Zandra seemed to proc their special effects on the boss. Taking advantage of the creature holding still for a moment in order to spew fire forth. Baldur sheathed the <<Muramasa>> as he took in the scene, ready to draw it again at moments notice.

"Let's each take a flank Baldur!" Ariel had called out to him.

The gaijin didn't even have time to nod his assent before the blonde had rushed forward on the dragon's left and Baldur took to the other side, trying to time his attack with Ariel's, but at the last moment, Baldur decided in this fight it would be better to go with accuracy over a little more damage, so he switched up his swords, changing his hand from the black wrapped handle of the Muramasa, to the white wrapped handle of the <<Warden's Fury>>.

Drawing the sword as he struck, the brilliant white light ignited with gold as the blade struck the scaled hide of the wyrm, lightning arcing from Baldur's blade and into the dragon as his Paralysis effect triggered alongside Jonathan's.

"Keep on your toes! We're about to drop the first health bar! We may need to man the ballista again."



Baldur used <<<Quick Change>> to switch from the <<Muramasa>> to the <<Warden's Fury>>

Did the puny humans believe their language was lost to Nihilim? That it could not understand them? Or did they truly think their insults might frighten such a divine being? Instead, their trash-talk simply sickened him. The dragon’s chest swelled indignantly, disgust as dark and heavy as the shadows surrounding them. It was insulting enough that such insignificant creatures even challenged it. Like an irritated cat, Nihilim flicked its tail, head tilted to glare down at the players. Contempt pulsed in every move the Guardian made. 

The final swordsman had only just delivered his attack before Nihilim lunged again. This time, fangs replaced talons, razor-sharp daggers plunging into Hestia’s armor. The dragon’s mighty jaw clenched, tore, and released only to emit a thunderous roar. Even as the tiniest pebbles bounced with the rage exploding through the cavern, that familiar ruby glow returned. Once more, a great blaze burst from between the beast’s ivory teeth. Like molten liquid through a castle’s murder holes, flame spilled, crashed, flowed. The wave consumed all in its wake, again depleting the health bars of the unlucky victims.

Taunt me again, Nihilim seemed to challenge, as the tiny pests fled from his flame.

Even though their attacks dealt enough to drop the dragon's health to another bar, the attack pattern didn't change.

Am I thinking of this too much like a boss? It should be changing something up at this point.

Paranoia was a frontliner's trade.

"Be careful. Once we drop its health bar, it may try something like we saw with the minotaurs."

The gaijin samurai was stating the obvious to everyone, but they wanted to stay on the same page, and prevent anyone from getting tunnel vision on the boss and its HP bar. This was just a labyrinth boss, but this floor was different, this fight was different, and they didn't want to leave anything to chance.

As the fire rolled out of the Dragon's mouth, Baldur charged forward, before the area the fire covered had too much room to grow and landed on the head of the dragon just after it had finished goring Hestia with its claws.

"Aiyah!" As he landed on the snout, Baldur had just enough time to find the premotion and activate <<San Ge>> straight into the eyes of the Dragon. It didn't do as much damage as he would have with the <<Muramasa>> but the <<Warden's Fury>> would never let him miss in this fight. It was better than he was reliable than pad his stats. White arcs of light flowed out from his sword strikes and ones more tore into the Dragon's 3d model, as lighting arced forth from every impact, which would have paralyzed lesser creatures.

As the sword art ended Baldur tumbled from creatures head and rolled off to the side as he tried to prepare to evade the next attack.

Zandra watched as her partymembers let their weapons fall on the mighty beast infront of them. The health of the dragon had quickly dropped and now it have reached below half health. Zandra glanced at her own health bar, full. The others wasn’t in any danger either. And this was supposed to be a challenge? But well, maybe it was because half of the ones in the group is almost max level. How would this be versus a lower leveled party. Or maybe the dragon haven’t showed his true strength yet. It was when this thought stroke her, that the dragon opened up his huge jaws let the fire rain down upon them. A big smile grew on the berserk healer’s face. Would this be the powerful attack that would bring them all down to yellow? She closed her eyes and felt the burning heat lick on her face and armor. Her heart started to beat faster as her armor started to burn as well. The veins in her axe was pulsating faster and brighter and she felt her will to use it grew stronger and stronger.

The fire ended and she opened her eyes. Her heart was still beating fast and hard in her chest and there was a fire in her eyes that haven’t been there in a long time. Not as intence like this. She gripped the big axe in a steady grip as she charged up her screw dimension sword art. There was still five shadow figures moving around and some familiars. Thou only the dragon had her focus. With only an evil smirk on her face she let her attack activate and the full force of her attack striked the dragon, followed by a shockwave, dealing even more damage on it. Meanwhile, Zita kept scratching at the wings of the dragon.

Something was wrong, something was really wrong. This fight, this Dungeon Boss, compared to the rest of this floor … this boss was easy, way too easy. Something was up, something was hiding, waiting, for everyone to let down their guard, like this dragon was only a part of the fight … perhaps the oncoming fight would be the true challenge, while this fight was only to exhaust everyone of their first few resources, it was the perfect plan to waste alpha strikes onto an unimportant monster, while the true battle was waiting just after the easy defeat of the first part. Macradon glanced back at the ballista not far from the battlefield and would regretfully get back to focusing on the dragon “Another time, my friend.” he thought as he averted his gaze from the ballista. With a quick motion right after the others had engaged, Macradon would too. With quick blows, Macradon and Belphegor quickly did a pod shot at the dragon, not a whole lot of damage, but enough to at least dent it while the others trickled down its health as well.

With the power clench of the dragon's teeth surrounding me i just grin seeing my health not even be effected mostly even with the addition of the flames hitting my armored figure afterwards as i just smile up at the beast. Myself having remained perfectly fine even through all that it is trying to do to me. After the attack I see the dragon's health and just nods my head with a smile figuring the fight will most likely be over with after this round of combat considering that the damage dealers have just been knocking it down one after the other with their hits. Though with how things could end if the beast has some last shot big damaging attack i quickly activate field medic as a green glow covers my hand and then links myself and the rest of my party in a green aura shooting all of our health back up towards full. Well if this thing has some plan of a last ditch effort to try and kill us it'll not be able to even scratch us now, and even if it does have some even scarier form i trust Zandra to cover all of our butts with her own healing while we wait for my field medic to come back up again. I say towards the group with a relaxed posture as i gaze back up towards the dragon as i wait for the next attack to come towards me if there will be a next attack.

Before her next attack, the blonde took in the current status of the fight. 'It's going pretty damn well...' she thought with a smirk while watching the feline like reaction of the dragon. Once again her thoughts went to Kimba who compared to the dragon before them seemed less savage and more noble. 'Should've brought her here to have some fun.' Ariel considered as she braced herself for the second wave of flames. Second time didn't seem as bad though she lightly cursed under her breath for not being able to completely evade the attack, again.

Ariel looked at her hands as everyone was engulfed in a green hue, their HP bars being restored by their designed tank. Smiling, she raised a thumb and winked at Hestia in acknowledgement of her statement. She lowered her center of mass and brought her feathered spear behind her as she dashed towards their foe, ready to retaliate. 

"You're all bark but not bite, my pet cat is scarier than you!" shouted Ariel as she jumped into the at in front of the dragon and activated her sword art, striking its head. She could feel her spearhead not connecting through the obsidian scaled armor but she pushed on and forced herself to redirect the last stab of her combo directly into the dragon's eyeball where she felt the sensation of her weapon piercing the unprotected orb. With hopes that she managed to momentarily reduce its visibility, the blonde used the last part of her telegraphed sword art to distance herself from it. With a little luck its impaired vision would discommode the drake's next attack on Hestia and the rest.
