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.
