Ayden's celebration must have been premature. As he swung his mighty sword, Nocturne instinctivly ducked. The great weapon went right over his head in a rather flashy matrix style attack, inflicting a wound upon the Shadow creature. Letting out a premature 'Hell yeah,' Ayden was punished for his arrogance. The creature dropped low, and slashed at his legs. The hulking man wasn't fast enough to dodge the strikes, and ended up with quite a few slashes around his legs, throwing him off balance and knocking him down.

 

"FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!" He shouted out in pain. Luckily for him, Nocturne was already moving back into action. As the Shadow beast attempted to end Ayden, Nocturne lunged, pressing his claws into the beasts back and twisting them to hold it in place. Ayden rolled bck a small distance, and began uttering a dark incantation. As the rune opened up below him, Nocturne realized it was a slowing curse. Rather simple dark magic, but effective all the same. Nocturne also new Ayden needed time to finish it, so he ripped the claws out and leap-frogged his way to the front of the creature, standing between it and Ayden. All he needed to do was buy time.

 

With that, he began his quick assault on the creature, dashing in, slashing, then rolling back. The assault happened at a rapid pace, though the wounds inflicted were at most superficial. All Nocturne was trying to do was buy Ayden time to finish the incantation. And so with that and mind, he continued his attack.

The shadow didn't turn, it seemed to morph and flip around before charging forth towards Qali with what used to be its back.
 
"What a disgusting creature," squawked Baal.
 
Qali fired her arrow, ignoring the pain of her leg. At this range, there was no way she could miss, and the creature fell to the ground thrashing, but it continued to scramble on the ground. It's speed was astonishing, Qali tried to react and jump away from the creature, but then realized her wounded leg was going numb. She stumbled slightly getting and was slower than expected.

The clawed hand reaching for her was intercepted by a bird, giving her the respite to avoid injury this time. She took large, jumping steps back while firing the other two arrows in her hand in quick succession.

"Lily, if you'd please," Lindow called out to his spirit as he slid the dagger in his right hand back into it's holster, and moved his fingers to the handle of his blade. His eye danced around shadow figure's face as what he could only assume was some kind of stinger began to extend from it's mouth, causing him raise an eyebrow in fascination.

"Already on it!" The Lightning Spirit's tiny voice sounded from somewhere within his cloak, before she suddenly leaped forth from his collar towards their opposition's face. "Eat this!" She hissed before releasing short burst of electricity that danced around the creature's form; revealing even more it's shape as the lighting nipped it's body. Though it seemed that the attack was only somewhat effective...

"It doesn't seem to be weak to magic either..." Lindow calmly analyzed the situation as he used Lily's distraction to slice at the creator's chest with a broad draw slash with his sword before leaping backwards.

"No solid body... a wraith?" His smirk faded slightly as his blade passed right though creature's body with little effect. "I don't suppose you'll back off for moment to let me prepare some wraith oil?" He chirped sarcastically as the creature lunged towards him. "Didn't think so..."

Reacting quickly, Lindow skillfully sent one of his daggers spinning towards the center of the creature's face. "Oh?" He watched as the creature suddenly bent itself backwards at an unnatural angle to avoid the weapon before lingering in that position for a moment.

"It's protective of it's face." Lily's growled as she leaped up on his shoulder. "I see that..." Was Lindow's response, before shifting into a defensive stance.

Keres struggled against the beast that was on top of her, shaking as her arms began to give out. If she were to lose her tentative grip on the oddly fluid creature she would be skewered through the throat. Suddenly bright lights, coming from the Spirit of Light, flared up. While the lights were not extremely bright in this darkness it was almost blinding. Once the initial shock cleared up the creatures' forms would be mostly revealed to them. Keres had never seen a creature like this before, though they didn't seem expressly demonic in nature.

Nonetheless they were dangerous and they were to become even more so. She noticed a faint trail of magic coming from the council, whose faces were still shadowed, and connecting with the creatures.

All at once they grew, growing a foot in height and nearing seven feet tall. Keres grunted as the creature pressed upon her with more strength. She had one shot at this and that would be it.

She gathered her water, already reaching her limit of how long she could hold the single spell, and made her attack.

 

Anis: The shadow facing the bird backed away, eyes flashing, from the somewhat wild slashes the bird was employing. Giving enough time for the faint light of the Light Spirit to partially reveal its face. But it wasn't until Anis brandished her glowing sword that the creature seemed to react. It crept backwards, farther into the shadows, while watching the two get into position.

Then the council's magic enlarged the creature and this acted as a signal for the creature to rush forward. It ignored the bird entirely in order to focus on the woman. Its larger size didn't seem to slow it at all, though the lights going on seemed to disorient it as it went for a headlong charge, attempting to wrap its arms around Anis and drag her into the air.

 

Gilly: The creature facing the Halfling seemed none too bothered by her wild flailing, however the sudden magical attack did force it to back away, just as its face lit up from the Light Spirit's magic. It stayed out of reach of Gilly's spear and seemed to simply wait for something to happen.
And soon after something did happen, it grew in size. As it did it reached forward and grabbed the spear, lifting it into the air and dragging Gilly upwards as well. It then thrust one hand towards the girl's neck, claws aiming to pierce her throat.

 

Reinaan: The shadow, still bent double, was shoved away from its target rather forcefully. It stood still momentarily before slowly righting itself while the Draken said something to Ryia. As it did the creature was affected by the council's magic and grew larger. However it didn't have enough time to launch another assault, as it spent too much time simply righting itself. It simply crouched down and prepared to spring at the Draken.

 

Ryia: The shadow stared at its target from the ground and, as she turned her attention to replying to the Draken, began to creep closer to her. However it paused as the light from the Spirit brought its body partially into view. Then it began to grow and, with the added size, was now close enough to Ryia. It wrapped a pair of somewhat spindly legs around the girl's closest leg and tried to pull her down. As it did this it bent its body upwards in a kind of sitting position.

 

Kha: The light having been thrust into its face seemed to distract the shadow creature. It didn't even so much as move as Kha's blade went for its face. However that was when the council's magic kicked in and the creature grew. The blade sliced instead into the thing's chest, cutting halfway through the creature and forcing it lopsided for a moment. Kha's blade was embedded halfway through its chest when it managed to right itself, its body seeming to reform around the blade itself as the creature pushed forward and tried to thrust the blade creeping out of its mouth into Kha's head.

 

Ayden: The shadow shuddered to a halt as the Spirit's claws bit into its back. It seemed to pause more for the physical object blocking it from moving quickly than from any damage to its body. As Nocturne rained blows upon the shadow it continued its advance, seemingly not concerned for the numerous gashes that, with the dim light from the Light Spirit, they could see opening up on the creature.

The spell that caused it to grow larger only made its progress faster. It swatted absently at Nocturne and lunged for Ayden, grabbing the man's head and lifting him up to eye level with the creature, whose red eyes were flashing rapidly now. A blade emerged from the creature's mouth.

 

Qali: The speed at which the creature recovered allowed it to reach the girl before she could properly ready herself. The thing was backlit by the Light magic but it only barely helped her find her mark. The arrows sunk into the thing's chest and passed through it. Its eyes flashed but it seemed to show no other response. Except for suddenly growing in size. It lunged forward once more, keeping low, and crashed into Qali, slamming her into what was apparently the wall where the council members were sitting behind. It twisted its neck and spine at an awkward angle in order to attempt to gouge her eye out with the blade emerging from its face.

 

Lindow: The creature was bent over double, and unmoving, while Lindow took on a defensive stance. Its body was more visible now due to the lights but it seemed none too bothered by the magic. It simple righted itself while growing. The large creature began to slip away, farther from the rest of the group, and out of the glow from the lights. All that could be seen was a flashing from its eyes as the creature waited for Lindow to make a move.

Bright orbs of light appeared over three of the beasts, though Gilly's was still shrouded in darkness. The halfling hadn't thought anything of it, too concentrated on her own fight. Once again, the shadow being seemed unaffected by Gilly's attack, though Snow's attack did cause it to back up. The ice spirit connected the dots. "Gilly, this creature seems weak to magic. I'd recommend using your hail attack." The rabbit paused, noting its increased size. And when the creature aimed to kill his Chosen, he once more manifested itself, and leapt at the being with his snow flurry, aiming for the claw itself. Managing to push it away so it swept past her shoulder, he landed on the ground, spent.

 

The halfling herself seemed unaffected by the fact that she almost died, though she did glance down worriedly at the rabbit. "Aww, fine, I'll use my hail," she pouted. "Uhh, in the name of the moon rabbit--wait wrong. In the name of the ice rabbit, Snowy, I command you, ice, to fall from the heavens and smite my opponents thee thou uhh something something thy."

 

Said ice rabbit smacked a paw over his face. "You do realize you don't have to say all that, right?"

 

"But it makes it cooler!"

 

Hob stood back for now, seemingly realizing he wouldn't be able to do much in this fight. However, the sheep stood ready, ready to help his owner if needed. Earlier, he had almost charged the creature, when Snow had intervened instead. Now, he watched as a dark cloud appeared above the creature, and large chunks of ice fell from it, raining down upon the being. Meanwhile, Gilly was sulking in the background. "Someday I'll get good enough with a spear. Just you wait and see."

Kha felt the all too familiar sensation of the ghoulish, shadow creature taking advantage of its insubstantial form and ghosting along the sharp edge of his sword. However, this time the monster was much larger, matching even Kha in height and upon seeing the blade-like appendage that it sported like some deranged beak primed to gouge out his eyes, the orc immediately started backpedaling. Throwing himself backwards, the healer did his best to keep out of the creature's range but unfortunately he was running out of tricks to pull. Orcs weren't known to have a wealth of stunts that they could rely on battle. It was pretty much just hack and slash your way to victory. 

 

However, it was at that moment that the simplicity of the situation set in. Kha nervously eyed his blade, still caught in the creature's abdomen, currently being used as a very ineffective tool to ward off the nightmarish, blade-beaked, spider-human, ghoul creature, Kha made a mental note to ask for the official name of whatever of these beasts were if he survived. For once though, the creature's impalpable body might actually play to his advantage.

 

"Let us hope that its head is more important its body." Kha said to Kal'bri, readjusting his grip on the hilt of his sword, taking a moment to dodge another deadly peck from the ghoulish monster. Twisting the blade so that it was vertical in the crimson-eyed nightmare, Kha heaved upward with the blade. The creature's immaterial form immediately began to come apart at the mercy of the hard steel of Kha's blade. Panicking, it's eyes began to blink rapidly and just as it seemed that Kha might split the monster straight down the middle the beast leaned to the right, craning its neck so the blade just barely missed slicing into its head.

 

Kha couldn't help but feel irritated at the string of events as he stared at the strangely split, though very much alive wretch. The beast had been speedy, sure, but how it had managed to avoid dying by his blade, whilst it was already impaled upon it..Kha was honestly at a loss for what to do next. 

 

"Don't just stand there like the dumb brute that you are! Kill the bastard before it knits itself back together." Kal'bri hissed, obviously whatever venom that had been scared out of her returning when faced with Kha's stupor.

 

Invigorated by the words of his spirit companion, Kha swung the sword in a deadly overhand arc, aiming for the creature's hanging, lopsided head.

After thanking the draken boy for his aid, the girl went to back on her watch for the creatures, only to then be taken by surprise by the creature's sudden attack against her. Wrapping its legs around her left one, the girl felt her balance shift completely as it was pulled out from under her. As the creature appeared to be sitting upright, she fell down and onto her back, having the beast seemingly about to pray on her. As a light seemed to shine throughout the room, and the creature appeared to be much larger than before, the girl seemed to finally get a good look at what it was she was dealing with. A ghastly creature, unlike anything that was native to the area around her home city, it appeared to be made of some kind of shriveled and wrinkled green flesh with large bulbous eyes staring right down at her. It was, of course, frightening to behold, but the girl let out no sounds of terror as it made its move.

 

Going to grip at her shield arm, once again, the girl did not want to give it the chance at another power struggle, and instead swung her shield to the side, attempting to bat the claws away from her. With the arms of the creature being knocked to the side, and the girl's own arm now clashing against the ground, she looked up to see that the creature was none too happy by this. With a blade protruding from its mouth, the girl could tell that it was about to do something rather unpleasant. Yelling, "Ackrin!" the tall goat like creature seemed to nod as it merged itself with the girl, hardening her skin and making it more difficult to pierce overall. Yet even then, she did not want to chance a direct hit from the creature, and so as it went in for a stab, the girl twisted her body to the side, attempting to avoid the attack altogether. As the creature missed with its mouth blade, it brought its hand back around and grabbed at her face. 

 

Its claws now gripping her face, slowly making their way through her skin with an unusual and unnatural strength given its more fluid like structure, the girl was face to face to the creature. Realizing that it was likely to attempt to stab at her with its blade once again, she needed to hit it hard and fast. And so, gripping her weapon tighter, she brought her mace up at full force, striking into the face with more of a the weapon then an actual swing. With the weapon landing straight on with the creature's mouth blade, the force of her attack seemed to snap the weapon and send the creature into what she could assume was some degree of pain. In response to her action, the fiendish ghoul like creature let go of both her face and leg as it seemed to slowly crawl backward. 

 

Letting out a large breath, both from slight fatigue and relief, the girl got her balance back. Bringing herself back up, standing upright and no longer in a less favorable state, she looked at the creature before her. While it was crawling back from her, seemingly more wary of the girl, it still seemed to have a predatory feeling behind its actions; looking as though it were to pounce at a moment's notice. With a determined look on her face, the girl was not ready to fall prey to such a beast, she raised her shield up and made her stance more firm, awaiting the next attack of the beast.

"...It's working?"

 

Slightly taken aback by the result of her action, Anis saw how the shadow was temporarily repelled away from her due to her now shining sword. She wasted no time to start figuring out how to make it work to her advantage, but a cruel twist happened - the council decided to soup up the size of the shadow. It then rushed towards her without wasting much time, although, Anis noticed something odd was happening with it. Perhaps it was due to the lights spread out on the field, the shadow looked somewhat disoriented, yet its charge was still as fast and deadly as before. It prepared its arms to grab her as Anis' attempt to get away from it failed due to reacting a bit too slowly, but she was saved at the nick of time by Ileca dragging her away at full speed, although the creature's arm still managed to give her legs some injuries.

 

"Maybe you should consider something brilliant like creating fireworks powered by the voltage of an electric eel or something. Go make a big explosion that'll show that thing to not mess up with you!"

 

"Shut up, I can deal with this on my own." She was not really appreciating to hear Shirin's sudden remark while she's using her magic to restore her damaged leg tissues as a quick patch-up, although she's probably not going to be able to walk without assistance for the time being. Preparing her bow as she rode around on top of Ileca, Anis then took the time to enchant the arrowheads with the lights of the fireflies, making it glow especially bright on the dark room they were in. In hindsight, Anis felt that maybe Shirin's idea of utilizing electric eel's shocks to do something might work, but as of now, she couldn't figure out well what would she do about it.

 

Once the preparation was done, Anis instructed Ileca to start moving around so she could get into a clearer position to aim at the shadow, while avoiding other people and their shadows. She couldn't be staying still on one location while shooting. The creature, as fast as it was, would be quite hindered by its size, as it would make it had less control of its movement. In a charging move like earlier, it would have a hard time turning around whenever the more agile duo moved and attacked it from another angle. With that plan in mind, Anis pulled the bowstring.

 

One shoot. The first one was aimed at its head, hopefully not hitting anything else despite the fact that Anis wasn't really that concerned if any of the council members got hit. Two arrows. Three. Four. Five. Several shots were fired in succession, always from different positions. By this point the creature would start chasing her, and it would make aiming at it a lot easier. If the arrows did anything to it, then Anis would continue firing it until her quiver's empty, but otherwise...

 

Anis looked at the shining sword on her belt. She knew what she must do in that case.

The girl seemed rather on the shy side as she addressed Reinaan, thanking him for his help and advising they attack the faces of the creature. The idea of the face being their weakness made sense as the creature had contorted itself into a very vulnerable position simply to keep the Draken's claws from piercing one of its eyes. Reinaan nodded in agreement as he turned back to face the other monster he'd fought off of the girl earlier. She seemed capable of taking care of herself against one of the beasts. As the boy looked on orbs of light came to his side which slightly illuminated the darkness. At the least it gave him enough to see the creature he was fighting in more detail again. Just as he'd seen before it had sickly green flesh, red eyes all up and down it's front side and... there it was again that mess of hair up top. After shuddering some he refocused as he noticed the creature began to swell in size. It was beginning to feel like the this council wanted them dead more than they wanted them to save the world. Yet his opponent did not attack, perhaps still reeling from before. Best to take it out before it could do anything else then.

 

"Ziiyol let's go!" he called back to his spirit partner. Ziiyol perked up not having expected him to ask her assistance for this fight and came twirling to the air to his side. "You mean we're really going to do it?!" she questioned excitedly. "Only long enough to kill this thing. I don't need anything blowing up in my face again." Reinaan clarified. But nothing of what he said to the fire spirit would calm her. Ziiyol stepped up behind her partner wrapping her arms about his neck and chest and leaning her body in against his back. The warm sensation from where she touched soon began to fill Reinaan entirely as the spirit disappeared, infusing her power into her partner's body. The boy's scales seemed to almost glow now with the sparks that were dancing on and off his scales. Reinaan held his spear in his left hand as streams of fire began flowing from the center of his chest along his shoulder and arm and gathered in the palm of his right hand. As he closed his fist around the flame and reopened it what looked almost like red hot swords extended two feet from his claws. Reinaan could feel Ziiyol's fire all throughout his body. His eyes took in every detail of his opponent, his ears listening for any movement. The hair didn't even bother him at the moment all he wanted was his prey. As Ryia's struggle broke out nearby he heard it but kept his focus on his mark.

 

"Alright let's do this" Reinaan said as he adjusted himself to the sensation of Ziiyol's power. He readied the spear in hand and threw it at his opponent hoping to open him up. To his surprise the creature leaped into the air dodging the attack and was moving towards him fast. It was all he could do to jump off to the side and sort of roll as he escaped the creature's attack. Getting back to his feet he saw the monster land on all fours where he had just been and thought this to be his opportunity to attack. Reinaan charged in and thrust his right hand forward to hit the monster with the flames protruding from his claws only for the arms of the monster to wrap around his own stopping the attack. The flame claws about Reinaan's right hand dispersed into trails of fire that traveled along the length of his arm quickly back to the center of his chest and then to his left hand where the claws manifested again. The creature moved back some not relinquishing its grip on the boy's arm and readied what appeared to be a blade from its face. The monster was moving in to stab Reinaan with this weapon from its mouth. With a surprising deep growl that sounded something of a roar almost the Draken swung his left arm straight up aiming to skewer the creature's head from the bottom of its jaw to the top of its skull, if it had either of those bones anyway.

"Lily, we'll go with a pincer strike." Lindow whispered to the small feline atop his shoulder before suddenly breaking off into a sprint towards the shadowy figure. 

 

"I need more time before I can use that spell again..." Was the lighting spirit's response as she tried to her best to hold on to Lindow's robe as his speed increased. 

 

"Fake it then." Lindow chirped as he shrugged Lily off, prompting her to begin scurrying across the ground in a flash of blue light.

 

Flanking the shadow creature from both sides, the pair lunged towards the beast in an attempt to overwhelm it with their superior numbers. "How about another helping?!" Lily roared as she jumped up towards their target's face as if she were about to use her discharge spell again. Though it would appear that the creature intended to target Lindow regardless.

 

"Not falling for it, eh?" Lindow jeered as he watched the beast set it's sights on him. Swinging his blade in a broad arc, his expression remained the same as his weapon passed cleanly through the shadow's midriff; just as it had done before. Naturally, he was prepared for what game next...

 

Seeing an opening in Lindow's attack, the shadow creature hastily lunged forward with it's claws extended towards the man's face and chest. "Gotchya~" Lindow cooed as he suddenly erupted into his own flurry of movement. Pivoting his body to the left, the witch hunter revealed his second dagger; stepping in and twirling the blade so that its edge was level with the monster's face before driving it into one of it's many eyes as it lunged towards him.

 

Time seemed to grind to halt as Lindow sensed a much larger amount of resistance when his dagger plunged into the creature's face. His single eye danced around it's form, causing his smirk to grow wider as he realized just how dire his situation was. With one of the creature's claws inches from slashing at his face, and the other pointed towards his right shoulder, Lindow's adrenaline was pumping through the roof!

Gilly: The shadow looked at its claw, seemingly not understanding what had stopped its attack. While it was wrapping its brain around the puzzle the girl began to speak. As she did, the creature lunged for her once more. And then ice fell upon it. It got struck in the back several times, and hurriedly stopped to put its arms over its face, and seemed to almost sink into the ground at the force of the ice. It slowly continued forward, unable to use its claws without its head being crushed by the ice. And so, once it got closer, it tried to awkwardly jab at the girl with its mouth blade.

 

Kha: The beast had been halted by the Orc's powerful swing, as part of its body dangled uselessly besides its other half. As the Orc stood there, it began to reform. Inky tendrils connected its two halves and it started to pull itself together just as Kha lashed out once more. The beast, unable to reform fast enough, was powerless to stop the blade from connecting with its head. As Kha's blade struck it, he would feel more resistance than the rest of the body, as the eyes he struck suddenly cracked with an audible noise.

A red light emerged from the broken eyes and the creature let out a hiss as it started to deflate, sinking into the ground. The glowing eyes flickered, then went dark, and the beast vanished entirely.

 

Ryia: The creature's eyes flashed wildly as it scurried backwards, having had the weapon coming from its mouth smashed with a mace. It didn't seem in pain, exactly, but it did seem unsure of how to react. It took some time, watching the girl in front of it, before its mind was able to process a reaction. It faded from sight. Instead of the headlong charge like before it just seemed to vanish. Moments later it came crashing into Ryia from the right side, bringing its full strength to knock her over. However it found that her skin was harder than expected, and it was unsuccessful in its attempt to bring her to the ground. This didn't stop it from lashing out with its claws, however, as it tried to pierce the stony skin.

 

Anis: The shadow struck the woman's leg, but didn't tear into her like it planned. The sudden interference of the bird baffled the creature and it took a moment to re-position itself. As the woman shot an arrow towards its head, the shadow reacted quickly. It brought a hand up to swat the arrow away. The next arrow struck its arm and, though it had no reaction, the glow from the tip distracted it and caused it to recoil slightly.

Then another struck, and another. Several arrows were now sticking out from the beast, none having hit is head, and it seemed to be thrashing about in an attempt to dislodge the arrows that were now a source of light which lit the creature up.

 

Reinaan: The shadow knew not why the Draken was not attacking but it didn't matter to it. All it meant was it was allowed to line up its next attack. It leaped just as the Draken flung his spear at the creature. Its momentum meant that it wouldn't be able to halt its forward motion and so the roll caused it to miss, and land back onto the ground, still crouched and primed for another lunge. It saw the flames coming from the Draken's claws and realized it had to intercept, grabbing tight hold of the offending arm. It was preparing to brace itself and attempt to tear Reinaan's arm off when suddenly the fire moved. The shadow decided it must finish its prey off right then and prepared for just that. But Reinaan's claw sunk into its chin and caused its momentum to halt. The attack didn't seem to do much to it, except make its eyes flash, but the Draken wasn't done. It continued upwards, through the creatures head, encountering little resistance until his claws made contact with the thing's eyes. They cracked and light shone forth from them before the creature sank into the ground and vanished entirely.

 

Lindow: The creature that attacked Lindow seemed to be rushing the ending now. It seemed to realize, somewhat, that the longer it fought the more chances it gave its prey to escape. And so, when Lindow attacked, it used this as an opportunity to strike. It didn't even halt when the man struck at its midriff, intent on continuing the attack and finishing him off. And then the blade sunk into its eye, shattered it, and caused the creature to go limp, collapse in on itself, and disappear.

 

Keres: The girl panted heavily as she stood up. Her attack had managed to reach the creature, crushing several of its eyes, before it reached her. Upon doing so, the creature was vanquished, seemingly, and disappeared entirely. She shakily brought out her journal and began jotting down the details of the encounter. Intent on doing so while it was still fresh in her mind...and then there was the scream.

 

Qali: The elf seemed shocked that her attack hadn't outright slain the beast. She was so surprised, in fact, that the monster had managed to get a position upon her that she couldn't fight off. Its blade sank into her eye, piercing deep into her skull and causing her to scream out in pain as it tore through her socket. She just barely managed to teleport, right behind the shadow, but her eye was now damaged beyond repair and dripped blood.

 

Ayden: The Chosen of Dark barely reacted to being picked up by the creature, who wasted no time slamming the human down into the ground. Once, twice, three times, again and again until the man was in a complete daze. The shadow lifted him up once more, seeing that Ayden was still breathing, albeit barely conscious. Then it heard a scream, and smelled blood, nearby and got distracted. It dropped Ayden immediately and rushed towards the source.

 

Qali: The girl shuddered in pure shock as the creature that gouged out her eye turned and a second shadow approached. Then the two of them lunged forward, tearing into her with their claws, repeatedly, until she stopped twitching.

In a flash of green light, and a screech of agony, the Wind Spirit vanished.

As the girl was awaiting the creature to simply charge her, it appeared to take a stealthier approach to what it had been doing thus far. As she focused on it, it disappeared into the shadows, and out of the girl's line of sight. Unsure of where it was, she started trying to glance from side to side to see where it could be coming from, when suddenly she felt something crash into her side. The force was definitely enough to topple a regular person, but the armored fighter had kept her ground and managed to brace off the charge with not too much difficulty. Seeing the creature recovering from recoiling from its attack. She looked to see that it was starting to move its claws back in preparation to strike her, but she had managed to rotate herself to the side and block the attacks with her shield before they could connect. With the claws harmlessly bouncing off her shield once again, the girl had went in for a follow up strike on its weak point in order to bring it down with her mace. 

 

However, as the mace attempted to hit the target straight on, the creature managed to fold and kick out its legs from underneath itself. As the creature managed to avoid her attack, it seemed a bit stunned once again due to its awkward placement, and seemed to not be able to immediately follow up with its next attack. Giving the vanguard the opportunity to react as the creature struck with its claws at her abdomen, she pivoted her body and slightly raised her left arm in order to bring the shield that was at her side in the way of the claws. Once the attack had met the wall once again, they bounced off again, and gave the earth chosen ample opportunity to counter attack. With her shield parallel to the creatures face, she pushed her arm forward, bringing her metal shield to the creature's face.

 

Of course, as the shield came within striking distance of the creature, it managed to bend and twist its body in some odd ninety degree fashion, causing her to miss again. Feeling slightly frustrated with the creature's flexibility and speed, the girl continued to persist until it fell. Taking a step forward with her right foot in order to shift her weight again, the girl then had her already raised mace arm come down at the creature. With an ample amount of force behind it, the girl struck the creature's face dead on. When the mace connected with the bulbous red eyes, they seemed to shatter and let out a light, causing the creature to sink and fade into the grown, disappearing altogether. Breathing a bit more deeply for a moment there, trying to catch her breath after the series of blows she had attempted to do to the creature, she stood upright, feeling slightly victorious over it.  Looking over to her draken comrade, she noticed that he had already taken care of his own as well, though before she could say much of anything, her thoughts were cut off by a loud scream

 

Looking over, her eyes widened in horror as she looked at where the screaming had come from. Two shadow creatures, hunched over the body of one of the people who had come in with them, withdrew their bloodstained claws from the, what could only be, corpse of the eccentric elf girl. While the death itself did not help her nerves, the real horror came from the, now, fact that the council did not care whether they lived or died. The people who had called them here in order to aid in their problems had no qualms when it had come to killing any of them. Nevertheless, while she was unnerved, she steeled her nerves and tried to figure out what it was she would have to do next. Seeing that everyone was either holding their own or had defeated their shadow creature, there was only one person that seemed in immediate need of aid, and that was the man she didn't feel quite right around outside. While she looked at him, she felt some kind of primal feeling of disdain towards him, she did her best to push it out of her head as she moved as fast as she could to make sure that he did not meet the same fate as the elf girl had.

As crimson light spilled out from the wound that Kha had newly inflicted, he dared to think that perhaps he had been correct to think that the creature's head had been its weak spot, dared to think that this was all over. Dropping to one knee, he held his sword perpendicular to the ground in a ceremonial salute as he watched the ghoulish creature dissipate into the shadows. "May the spirits guide you home." He said, clutching one of the pendants around his neck. He could practically feel Kal'bri's eyes roll, but he paid her no mind as he kissed the charm making a religious sign with his hands.

 

It was at that moment that a scream cut the air, slicing through Kha like a knife. His head whipped around, immediately honing in on the Chosen that was quickly becoming soaked in her own blood. Suspiciously still Kha feared he had forced the cycle. He had taken a life, and now a life would be taken from them. Overcome with a guilt, Kha whispered to Kal'bri. "Can we still save her?" The desperation clear in his voice.

 

"Why would we want to save a stuck-up elf?" The confusion even more evident in Kal'bri.

 

"Compassion, Kal'bri! That's why. Just- Can we save her?" Kha pressed.

 

"No, she looks pretty dead to me. The cute one though, that one we can save." Kal'bri motioned to where Ayden had been thrown, the Earth Chosen standing guard over him.

 

"You'll help me then? Without complaint?" Kha rose, stretching out his hand for Kal'bri to land in it.

 

"To save a human like that..." Kal'bri landed in the palm of Kha's hand sinking below his ashen flesh, giving it an ethereal glow as they merged. Invigorated with the blessed spiritual power, Kha felt as though he had no time to waste. Dashing to Ayden's crumpled form, he looked to Ryia.

 

"I will heal him, but I will need cover. Just in case." He had noticed that the ranks of the council's attack-ghouls had thinned fairly considerably, but there were still the two that had killed the elf girl left to worry about. Kha was confident that now that he knew how to kill the creatures that he could do it fairly easily, but he also couldn't in good conscious leave the man on the floor in this kind of state. 

 

Setting his sword down, Kha lay both of his hands down on Ayden's abdomen. A faint blue glow emanated from his hands, enveloping his the Dark Chosen's form. Kha had to concentrate. This wasn't like a sword cut or an arrow wound, his body was broken. Slowly, however, Kha felt Ayden's bones shift, re-setting themselves, and his bruising began to fade.  "You're safe."He cooed.

The blades of fire pierced through the head of the creature with the same lack of resistance the spear had met before. But then the magic struck the eyes of the beast and finally found something solid to hit. The red spheres cracked and burst into light as the monster appeared to sink out of existence, its hold on Reinaan's arm vanishing with it. The Draken saw his opponent finished and for the first time since entering the tower relaxed the slightest bit. There were still noises going on around him, still other battles to help win now that he was finished but his mind was naturally relieved to be rid of one of the monsters. The boy's breath was fairly heavy now from the intensity of the scrap with the creature. The claws of fire receded back into his chest and the various sparks and embers that danced off of him seemed to gain some intensity with it. Reinaan looked himself over and brushed himself off some checking for injuries. The cut in his shoulder had stopped bleeding, there were some fresh cuts from the creature's tight grip around his right arm that were gently oozing blood like his shoulder had been. The cold of the injuries was difficult to fully feel given Ziiyol's fire coursing through his body at the moment but aside from the shoulder, arm and minor scratches at his tail he seemed to be alright. Ryia who he had helped earlier seemed to have managed to finish her opponent off as well. He'd have to remember to talk to her for real when things were in the clear. Reinaan's relief was cut short as a scream pierced the air. Looking over two of the monsters had assaulted the elf girl. Green light flashed as the wind spirit disappeared.

 

The armored girl and the large orc rushed to the side of the human man who seemed to be in bad shape as well but Reinaan stood there in disbelief. He had been all for the council testing them and slightly concerned just how dangerous this test seemed to be but he thought surely no one would die for it all. The council hadn't called off the beasts. They had let the girl die. No, they had killed her themselves. This was murder and he had no idea what to think or feel. His senses refocused him as sounds from the other fights came back to him. There were still four of these monsters left, they had to go before he could anything else. Reinaan ran quickly to retrieve his spear. He could stay merged with Ziiyol for some time yet but the time he had left on the claws before they started exploding on him wasn't something he was fully aware of yet and he didn't want to risk it. Weapon in hand he took off to Ryia's side to help fight off the two monsters who had injured the man and killed the elf.

 

"Ready for round two?" he asked the girl somewhat playfully as he tried to psyche himself up some. He was tiring out and wasn't looking forward to taking on another of the monsters but there wasn't much else to do at this point. He readied his spear and stared down the two monsters doing his best to not look away despite the sight of what remained of the elf girl.

Ayden's struggles were completely unnoticed by the beast. It seems his curse had the opposite effect, increasing its strength and speed rather than hindering. When it's hand was on his face, he could do nothing but watch. The first slam to his head left him feeling dazed. Then the second. Then the third. The world was spinning, and he found it hard to think. Darkness formed around his eyes, and there was a very sharp ache in his head. He knew death was coming...but then something else happened. A shrill shriek took all the attention off him. He didn't even try to figure out what was happening. As soon as he was dropped, he just chose to stay there, sprawled out against the ground. His eyes rolled into the back of his head and he embraced the incoming darkness, now unconscious. Still breathing, but in need of medical attention.

 

Nocturne had tried to help, but he found himself losing grasp of his physical form. After being violently shoved to the side, he was struggling to remain in this form. While he tried to make his way to Ayden, it was no use. He watched again and again as his chosen was slammed into the ground by a construct that was supposedly created by people that were on their sides. The bastards... He thought internally, but held his tongue. As he made his way to what was surely to become the corpse of Ayden, the beast suddenly dropped him. Nocturne stood over the unconscious boy. He checked for breath and heart rate and pulse, but things did not look well for him. Of course, it could hardly be blamed. His magic and the nature of Nocturne were completely negated by these things. Almost like they were determined to fail before they even had a chance to do anything. The unique and dark magic Ayden had was absorbed entirely by this demon. 

 

Speaking of the demon, Nocturne knew the only way to keep his chosen safe was to dispatch of them. With the last of his remaining ability, he charged after it with an unreal speed. When he entered its range, he pounced. As he landed, he dragged his claws down the creatures back. Not wasting any time, he dashed quickly through this construct. He then dashed through it again. And again, and again, and again. Finally, Nocturne could not hold his form. With a final dash, he cleaved his way through one last time, before losing grasp of his form.

 

It seemed as if Nocturne's flesh began to burn. It peeled off, all that was visible, and a black steam emanated from him, and his form became ethereal. He backed off, taking deep breaths for a moment, before regaining his composure and returning to Ayden's side, unable to do anything but watch.

 

"Hang in there kid..."

Gilly easily avoided the awkward jab from the creature's mouth blade. Grinning, she twirled her spear wildly once more, looking to take advantage of its awkward positioning. However, her skill with the spear was so bad that she ended up missing horribly, stabbing right through Snow's incorporeal form. The rabbit sent her an unimpressed look.

 

The halfling managed a contrite face in response before she continued flailing away. Meanwhile, Hob butted the shadow in the side again, having summoned up enough courage to face that cold feeling again. It wasn't as if he wasn't used to the cold, after all, but this was a different type of cold. One that sent his heart shivering.

 

Snow looked at Hob's actions. He didn't think the sheep would be able to do much, but at least it might distract the creature. Enough that he might have time to do that. Looking at Gilly, he hopped on her shoulder straight from the ground. If one were to see him in action, they would think that he had wings for feet.

 

"Gilly, we should do that," he said. Despite his emphasis on the last word, his voice was as flat as ever.

 

"No way," her response was immediate and unsurprising. "I'll figure this out with my spear. Because I will be the greatest spear hero that ever was. And," her tone turned a bit meek, "you're tired right now." Her voice gained confidence as she spoke. "So just sit back and watch. I'll show you the power of a determined halfling!"

 

The rabbit blinked, before settling himself onto her shoulder more. That part of her...I don't mind so much, he thought. The spirit sweatdropped when he saw her drop her spear by accident. But she really does need more training with that thing if she wants to be even a little heroic.

"...A death already."

 

With the monster being distracted with all the light arrows, Anis took the time to look around to properly assess the battlefield's condition. She noticed how the elf of earlier ended up getting killed rather brutally by another beast apparently, and despite how much she was not comfortable in the presence of the elf, Anis offered some words of prayer towards the girl's soul, before returning her focus towards her enemy.

 

"You didn't seem so disturbed. It's the kind of fate that's going to come to your and Ileca's door at any moment. So, why don't you show some more concern?"

 

"There's that one point where I stopped being shocked by it. Death's a part of natural life, after all. You cannot have one without the other.

 

And if dying like that is the fate we are facing...then both of us are ready. Isn't it right, Ileca?"

 

Ileca nodded in silence, her gaze was still focused on tracking down the beast's movement. It seemed that some of the beasts were already being defeated by the others chosens, which meant that she would be able to do so if she figured out how. Looking at the beast again, she noticed that the beast had none of the arrows Anis fired earlier managed to hit its head. Ileca found it pretty hilarious how a skilled marksman like Anis could miss a target that big, but it did give her some concerns too. Time kept on ticking, and it's or never.

 

"Kaw, kwa wak waak! (Anis, let's finish this! Let's cut off its head, and finish him with your bright sword!)"

 

"If you...well, if you so wish.

 

Let's do this."

 

Responding to Ileca, Anis brandished her short sword that was still shining with the light she embedded into it earlier, and she channeled more of her magic to its blade to make the light brighter. And then, Ileca wasted no time to charge towards the dazed beast before them, building up momentum from her speed, and rammed the beast as hard as she could. Moments before the impact, Anis jumped from Ileca's back, and while the bird crashed to the ground due to the backlash of the impact, Anis went straight towards the beast Ileca had just crashed into, and still having some momentum with her, brought her shining sword towards its head, and attempted to cleave a big part of it, and even going down towards its body.

 

She was left in a prone position now, but she was still adamant that even if this failed to kill the beast, Ileca would recover fast enough to save her from fatal wound. And after that...well, she could patch up those before she went to an actual healer.

Lindow watched as th creature fell limp after having its eye shattered. "Well that's that." He sighed as he slid both weapons back on to his belt.

"I have to admit... If there's one thing you're good at, it's murder." Lily's tone was full of relief. Though their moment peace didn't last very long... "Lindow," Thunder spirit began as her sights settled on the Chosen of ice as the young girl dropped her weapon whilst attempting to fend off her opponent.

"On it!" The Witch Hunter was already in motion. Approaching the confrontation from the side at full speed whilst drawing his sword. "Mind if I step in?" Lind's chirp was heralded by a flash of silver as his blade glided cleanly over the ice chosen's tiny head in a broad slashes aimed towards the creature's face. Still hanging on to Lindow's shoulder, Lily flashed the spirit of ice a smug grin as their chosen made contact.

Sensing the danger only moments before it was beheaded, the shadow creature immediately contorted its body to dodge the new combatant's attack. Unable to stop the man from scooping up it's target with his free hand and diving forward, the creature promptly corrected its posture before lunging towards the pair of humans.

"Lily, if you'd please..." Lindow called out to his spirit as he glanced back at the beast with the chosen of Ice slung over his shoulder.

Nodding, the thunder spirit lept forward releasing another discharge of lighting directly on the beast's path causing it stumble in it's advance.

Keres looked upon the unsightly view of the creatures tearing into the elf girl, The Chosen of Wind, Keres reminded herself, the one with the element closest to mine, I should have done something, I should have helped, I...She lost concentration and the water dropped to the floor with a slight splash. This caused the creatures to turn towards her. And then one of them was assailed by the Spirit of Darkness. Again and again Keres watched as the thing sliced through the creature's midsection. It seemed to split in half and fall to the ground as the Spirit finished its attack.

"Keres be careful. I don't think these things will be affected by illusions."
Keres nodded. "Agree....Retreat." She kept her eyes on the creatures as she began to back away. However the moment she blinked she lost sight of them, as they crept along the walls and out of sight, the fallen one seemingly leaving its legs behind. She couldn't be sure which direction they were going, especially as the glow from the Chosen of Light's magic was fading somewhat, but she was sure that they wouldn't be going after the larger group that had gathered around the Chosen of Dark.
 
She paused. They could be coming from anywhere and it would do her no good to gain any distance from their original location. She could feel panic beginning to set in and gripped her robe tightly, counting to ten, and breathing regularly. There wasn't much water left in her flask, she wouldn't be able to fight back for much longer, so...
She felt something at her back. Suddenly her shoulders were grabbed by one of the creatures and she was lifted, legs flailing, into the air. The other, legless, one seemed to shoot from the ground itself, a dagger-like appendage sticking from its mouth, as it rushed towards her.
 
The beast that Anis attacked split in twain fairly easily from the momentum of the attack, and Anis' sword would pierce from the top of its head to almost waist level on its body. However she hadn't pierced any of the eyes and the creature was now dangling in practically two halves, as it started to reform. A thin substance latched onto its left side, from its right, as it began to pull itself back together, awkwardly flailing its claws at Anis.
 
The one fighting Gilly seemed to just be waiting for a moment to attack. Which came as the girl dropped her weapon. However as it was about to attack it noticed movement to the side, and bent its body to avoid the blade coming for its head. It righted itself and meant to attack the girl again but she was no longer there.
It looked at the two, and seemed confused. It didn't know how it was supposed to deal with the situation. It meant to fight a single prey, not two. It stood there for a moment before crouching down, closer to the ground, and partially fading from view while it crept along the side, waiting for one of them to make a move.

Gilly pouted, annoyed that this strange one-eyed man had interfered. "I could've done it myself, you know," she complained. "But thanks for your help," she added. Picking up her dropped spear, she moved forward to attack, and then backed up when she saw the lightning spirit release a bolt right in the creature's path.

 

Snow was trying to make sense of the situation. Because not only had he felt the flicker and fade of the wind spirit, but now the lightning spirit, or rather, its chosen, the one who set his nerves on edge, had rescued them. "My thanks to you," he dipped his head, tone cold, not seeming to react to the smug grin Lily had shot him earlier.

 

Hob gave his own baa of thanks, before backing away once his owner started twirling her spear again. "Hyah!" she shouted, attempting to aim at the monster in front of her.
