Layne hummed along to the sea shanties that their... Escort? Ride? Had started to sing with a little smile on his face, leaning over the edge of the boat to watch the ocean as they drifted out to sea. The calmness of it had surprised him a little bit, he had been expecting something a little more... Bombastic with the concern and the occasional rumors he had heard, but this? This just seemed like a pleasant cruise to their destination, nothing to worry about.

 

So, with a lighthearted whistle, he kept watching the skyline as Susanoo kept singing his own songs, trying to pick up the words to his memory so he could join along with the next bout, only to catch sight of something that was actually... Mildly concerning. The shark creatures on the water definitely seemed to have seen better days, judging by how their skin was practically rotting and falling off, at least... It looked like it was. It was hard to get a good judge of if it was actually rotting or if it just looked like that from atop the ship, but Layne certainly didn't have any plans to jump down to get a better look...

 

And then, on the horizon, those strange vulture like birds appeared. The slightly uncanny appearance of those birds  The sight of the almost skeleton birds caused Layne to flinch as the others talked, a little mumble escaping him as he did, "Just... How dangerous are those?"

 

Judging by the way that Susanoo immediately ditched the helm of the ship to fire a cannon at one... And how Rona took off into the air,  Layne took that as a good indication that he shouldn't just... Sit around. He grabbed onto his staff as he glanced over at the opposite side of the ship, calling out to the three over there, "If any of you get hurt, move towards the middle so I can get to you faster! I'm gonna learn to use a cannon."

 

If any of them could have actually seen his face as he turned away and quickly dashed towards the cannon, they would've seen a wide grin on it. Even with the life and death situation they've found themselves in, here was something new, something novel for him to do! Who knew when the next chance he would get to fire a cannon towards something would be? And with Rona charging off to fight with these strange birds, he knew she was going to get into some trouble... So the best thing to do?

 

"Rona! I'm taking out the one on your right, keep an eye on the other two!"

 

Layne rushed to the cannon and began to mimic what he saw Susanoo doing with the other cannon, setting his staff down against the side of the ship as he did. He scooped up the iron ball, though slower than the pirate had, and loaded the cannon, before setting it off. With another loud BOOM, the hunk of iron was sent soaring through the air, towards one of the Carrion. Though this, only one thought had run through Layne's head as adrenaline rushed through him.

 

I might never be able to hear again.

As much as she hated it, Ada had accepted that the group would be taking Susanoo's boat from the moment they met him. Riding on the boat seemed like an issue at first, but Ada simply read from her books and tomes as they moved, preferring to keep to herself a little ways away from everyone else. However, she had mostly focused on a tome for the creatures of the sea... Both of this world and not. When the rotting sharks came up alongside the boat, she merely peeked over the rail to see them before returning to her book. She was safe with her books, so why should she be disgruntled... Aside from the singing.

 

Looking over to Susanoo with a scowl, she grit her teeth. She had no idea why Layne was going along with the brute's boorish song, shaking her head and willing it to shut up. However, when it did end, it was hardly a cause for joy. The girl was shocked as the skeletons landed, only now noticing the wicked avians assaulting them. Standing up quickly, she noticed Susanoo then Layne use the cannons, both seriously damaging the carrion that they hit. 

 

"If I were to use the one nearest to me... I'd be in range of those skeletons... I think I can take a few of them, and I can use the cannon for some cover..."

 

Quickly placing her book inside of her bag, she rushed over to the nearest cannon, loading the cannon with only a little more effort than Susanoo had put in. The loud noise from before told her to be prepared, plugging one of her ears as she fired the cannon. 

 

Even bracing and minimizing the sound, Ada still took quite the hit from the kickback and boom, shakily picking herself up with a hand on the cannon. Her free hand produced her tome as she looked at the skeletons, throwing a quick glance back to see where everyone was. And, with no Rona in sight, she cursed, unable to see her through the mast. She turned to the skeletons again, a scowl painted on her face, one that said 'not this again'.

With the crew beginning to move out, many of the company members went to man some of the cannons across the top of the ship. With one loud bang after the other, successive shot after shot, three cannons were aimed and fired t the Carrion that were attempting to strike at the boat. Each of the cannon shots rang true, both at their targets and at the ear drums of the firers, turning the Carrion into nothing more than a pile of rotted feathers and bones that scattered and fell into the sea below. 

 

Moving himself forward, Leon got himself ready and into position, in order to deal with the small group of skeletons approaching the ship from the left. Bracing himself, one of the skeletons with an axe had made its way over to the boy, bringing its axe up and trying to swing down on the boy. Side stepping the axe blade, the young company leader swung his blade in a horizontal arc, breaking off a few of the bones in the skeleton's side. The rest of the skeletons behind it merely advanced, weapons at the ready. 

 

While one Carrion near Rona had been killed, the other two still seemed raring to try and strike at the passengers of the vessel. While one Carrion tried to merely keep pace with the skeletons, the other swooped into strike at Rona. While the bird managed to strike at her, her wyvern was an interposition between the two and the Carrion's beak was unable to pierce the thick scales of the wyvern, resulting in nothing more then a minor annoyance. While the bird had missed, it was nothing if not nimble and managed to avoid the counter swing from Rona's axe. 

 

The skeletons on the east side of the boat, however, had a much better time and much easier prey to go after. With Ada manning a cannon, the girl had exposed herself to the group as they began advancing upward. The first, a gnarled looking bow in hand, moved ahead of the pack and drawing an arrow out took aim at the shaman and fired. The arrow flew true and struck Ada in the shoulder, though this would be the least of her worries. Two more skeletons had moved past the archer, one with a lance and the other with an axe. With little effort, the girl was soon found herself swarmed as the both of them managed to bury their weapons into her as well, severely wounding the shaman. 

 

Meanwhile, the shadowed figure began to advance as the ship made its way towards it, the Carrion still circling around it.

Rona's grip on her axe tightened as the Carrion swooped in. They certainly looked disturbing this close didn't they? And if they got past her then...

She nearly jumped as the cannon went off nearby, taking one of the bird-like creatures down in one blow.

 

It was a disturbingly hollow feeling to know a hunk of metal was more useful than she was.

 

Despite this it meant there was less of them to face and thus only one of them came in to attack. While it looked frightening the creature was far too weak to pierce through her and Cormag's defenses. She tried to counter attack it, aiming for its head, but the creature was able to flap its wings and propel back to avoid her swing.

 

It was then she heard the sounds of combat behind her. Glancing back for a moment she noticed Leon, and Ada, were both being swarmed by Skeletons. Stomach in knots she called out. "Get to the starboard side, everyone! Let me handle these they can't so much as scratch me!" Her outward confidence was only matched by her inward doubts. After all she couldn't even hit this thing yet the cannon....

 

Which was why the best she could hope for was to be bait. With a battle cry she took aim once more at the Carrion, sending her axe down in a strike meant to hinder the bird's ability to dodge a second time...If she could manage to hit.

Susanoo couldn’t hear the battle over the ringing in his ears. “Time for me to earn that gold, is it?” he said, noticing the sorry state they were in. “Well don’t worry. Ol’ Bull’s worth every coin and then some.”

 

The skeletons had surrounded the Iron Falcons magician. She was in sorry state, bleeding from more areas than she wasn’t. Susanoo closed the distance between them with a three massive strides. “Leave the melee to the big boys, girlie,” he shouted, grabbing her by the remnants of her cloak and throwing her behind him. She was completely hidden from sight by his massive frame.

 

“As for you bony bastards… My Mama taught me not to desecrate the dead, but I’m not about to start listening to her now!Susanoo grinned and swung at the first skeleton he could reach (Skeleton 7).

Ada let out a cry as the arrow struck her, but used that as a chance to brace herself for the incoming impacts. She fired a spell back at the skeletons as they set upon her, but one of their strikes threw her off balance, causing the shot to miss. As she quivered and bled, she grit her teeth, gripping her tome tight. 
 
"Come on, Ada. Pull yourself together. If you don't make it to Layne, you're done for... That Susanoo guy should be able to fend them off, right?"
 
Ada had barely finished her thought before the man in question shoved her back and began to fight the creatures, telling her that a girl needed to back off. As much as her blood was boiling, she had no room to argue, so she retreated as fast as she could. Prick that he was, he did just what she needed. Bracing herself against the cannon that Susanoo had been at previously, she panted, seeing her companion at the cannon across the ship, unaware of the carrion looming behind her. She took a portion of the medicine from her pouch, then cried out.
 
"Layne, over here!"

Layne rubbed at the side of his head as he felt his hearing start to return proper, a little mumble escaping him as he shook his head. The worst of the ringing from the cannon fire had passed now, and he was left standing there as he picked up his Heal staff once more. He turned to survey the battle going on the ship, his brow raising for a moment from the quick examination...
 
Rona wasn't in a huge amount of trouble. She seemed to be handling the Carrion just fine, and the skeletons hadn't been able to reach her over the water. She didn't need healing just yet. That was an odd thought to have to process. Leon wasn't injured either. He was going one-on-one against a skeleton at the moment, but there was backup rapidly approaching. But Rona would be able to fly in any minute to help him. On the other hand, Ada was stumbling an- "Layne, over here!"

 

It looked like his decision was made for him. Without waiting any longer to make a decision, he turned to the right side of the ship, his heal staff shining as he nodded to Ada, "I'm coming! Stay behind the other two, I can't get to you just yet!"

 

Before he began his dash, he looked back over his shoulder, calling out to Leon and Rona, "I need to move to the other side of the ship to help the others, try to fall back a little bit if you can!"

 

With that, he began his run to the other side.

Raynor was frustrated. 

In the group's defense, this was kind of his own fault. he didn't expect Gojira to be so adverse to the water. Sure, they'd never been on a boat before, but he didn't think his Salamander would be so skittish on the ship. He would have to work on that later, he supposed. For now, he had resort to the secret techiquie. As the battle raged around him, Raynor leaned over, whispering something into his Salamander's ear. 

Gojira perked up instantly, and charged ahead, Raynor gripping his lance. It seemed that a bunch of monsters were trying to gang up on Susanoo. He was sure the big guy was able to handle it, but hey, it was better to help out. That's what the guy wanted anyways. 

He had Gojira skid to a stop by a skeleton, and Raynor gave a mighty thrust with his lance. This was a maneuver he and Gojira had practiced many times... but never on a boat before.

As the Carrion continued to fly in the face of the wyvern rider, it seemed ready to assault once more, ascending before attempting to dive at them once more. However, this was thwarted as the axe of the girl let out a battle cry as she swung her axe true. The bird did not manage to get out of the way in time, and instead was merely cleaved in two as the axe practically glided through its flesh, tearing through bone, feather and sinew with ease. The two halves of the bird  fell down and struck the side of the boat, before falling into the waters below. 

 

Meanwhile, the two larger men of the group had taken to fighting the skeletons on the starboard side of the ship. As Susanoo made his way over to one such skeleton wielding a lance, it didn't seem to pay much mind to the fight and attempted to continue moving towards the shaman. This was a mistake for the mindless monster as the axe managed to bury itself into the ribs of the creature, both snapping most of its torso and causing it to halt. Turning to face the culprit, it didn't so much as let out a hiss before the lance from Raynor buried itself in the skull of the creature, removing the head from the rest of its body and causing it to collapse. 

 

Leon, meanwhile, was fairing well enough against the skeleton before him, and wanting to halt the advance of the other two skeletons as well made his way to move around the creature. As he stepped around it, he cleaved his blade through the spine of the skeleton, causing it to tumble down to the ground, and putting Leon in front of the next two. Looking to Rona, he nodded saying, "the two of us will handle this side, the rest of you, keep to where you are." 

 

As Leon made this note, the enemies began their retaliation. The first off which being a bird striking at Rona, but finding just as little success as the last of its kind. The next two being the skeletons near Leon. While the both of them had lances, Leon was still prepared for their onslaught, and as such managed to parry the lance of the first skeleton attacking him. With a swift riposte, Leon managed to strike back at the skeleton, chipping off a portion of its skull, though the skeleton seemed to mind very little about this. During this time, however, Leon was left open as another of skeletons managed to strike him in response. 

 

Meanwhile, though Ada was feeling healthier, she now had the issue of skeletal bird flying at her and beginning to peck her. 

 

With Susanoo and Raynor having felled the first of the four skeletons, the other three now had their attention set on them. With the  first of the skeletons firing an arrow at Susanoo, the preparation to fire was so telegraphed the the Yonan was able to dodge out of the way easily. Both he and Raynor, however, had much less luck against the two axe wielding skeletons who struck true and managed to wound both of them. 

 

While the group was preoccupied with these monsters, however, they would soon find their problem to get worse as the Carrion that had been ahead of the boat were now right at its head, the shadowy figure encircled by them. What appeared to be a cloak covered in and filled out with wisps of darkness and shadow would be easily recognized by Leon, Layne, Ada and Susanoo as a Phantom. A creature of strange substance and magical might, much less likely to just be found roaming around like the rest of monsters, little was known about these beings other than that to less spiritually attuned they were as dangerous as they were ominous.

“You don’t get to ignore me!” Susan smashed his axe into Skeleton 7’s torso as it tried to move past him. All the momentum the monster had possessed suddenly died, the force of the pirate’s axe splintering his rotted ribcage and dragging him back where he belonged.

 

Skeleton 7’s decrypted jaw hinges creaked as he hissed at the Yonan. Susanoo raised his axe once again to put an end to the miserable thing’s re-existence, but a lance sprouted from the monster’s skull before he could. Susanoo looked over his shoulder to see Raynor pulling his lance back to his side.  “Your beast finally found his sealegs, did he?” He barked a laugh.

 

Their jesting was cut short by Skeleton 1. Susanoo noticed it across the deck, nocking an arrow. “Watch your head!” he shouted in warning, ducking just in the nick of time himself. The arrow flew over his head and buried itself in the door of his quarters. “Oi! That’s where I sleep, bastard!”

 

He made to dash toward the soon-to-be-dead-again Archer, but he was cut off by another skeleton taking a swing at him with a rusted axe. He caught the dulled edge of the axe with his free hand. The skin on his hand was so rough and calloused he barely felt it cut into him.

 

“Stay outta my way!” He slammed the flat of his axe into Skeleton 4’s helmet. The corroded headpiece fell apart on impact, and Skeleton 4 was lifted off of his feet and knocked across the deck.

 

With nothing to get in his way this time, Susanoo stomped over toward Skeleton 1. The undead seemingly tried to raise his bow, but Susanoo brought his axe crashing down on the skeleton’s head before it had the chance to nock an arrow. “Bastard! Think you can come on my boat and just start putting holes in anything you want? Well you…” he trailed off.

 

A chill ran down his spine. Susanoo exhaled, and when he did, his breath fogged up in front of his face. His skin had even prickled up into goosebumps. “Huh?” It felt as if someone had suddenly robbed every trace of warmth from the air. He had only felt something like this a few time in all his years; something supernatural was among them.

 

He whirled around and, to his horror, saw a Phantom floating across the deck. It moved slowly, slovenly, as if it owned the place. Susanoo gripped his axe tighter. “Phantom! Steer clear of it!” he shouted over the clamor of battle. “That means you too, girlie! Dragon scales won’t do much to stop that thing!”

Oh. It worked. That was incredible! Rona felt an odd rush as the Carrion was cleaved in two so easily. She had done it! Her lips quirked in a small smile as the bird fell into the water. She had done at least as well as the cannon. Which meant the other would fall just as easily...

 

However she heard the clash happening nearby. Leon, being attacked by two skeletons, and her heart dropped. Without even thinking she swooped down towards the one that had damaged her leader. "Commander, I'm here, let me be your shield!" she then brought the axe down, aiming for the skeleton's sternum, hoping to split it in half much like the Carrion.

 

Until Susanoo's shout, signalling her, or rather Cormag, out she didn't notice that the strange figure had gotten closer. She glanced over at it. The Carrion around it didn't seem any stronger than the ones they had felled so easily so far...but the thing in the middle. She knew enough about magic to tell this creature was obviously magical. She had been raised to distrust magic. It was a warrior's bane and she had been taught that it was something no true warrior would stoop to. Thus even without the warning she wanted to avoid it.

 

But if it got too close...she would have to bring it down. Not wanting to seem cowardly, Rona shouted back to Susanoo. "Cormag can handle it better than your floating hunk of wood I'm sure."

Ada hadn't seen the bird before it set upon her, but she was able to force it away from her with minimal damage. She saw Layne coming to her aid, preparing her book to blast the carrion from the sky.

However, the Phantom appeared before she could make a move. Freezing in place, she scanned the area, trying to decide what would be the best course of action. Moving slightly past the carrion, in order to draw the Phantom's attention, Ada bit her thumb before opening her Shade tome, the magic seeping strongly from it as her blood made contact with the binding.
 
"Shroud!"
 
Using her weapon art on the Carrion, she turned to face the Phantom, bracing herself for its assault. It would hurt, but...
 
"Layne, get behind me! I'm gonna draw it in, just keep me alive!"

Layne gripped the Heal Staff tighter as he glanced around the boat, watching the combat going on as he winced a little bit. The fight was getting more... Condensed, and that was really, really bad for him. Soon he was going to be trapped in a spot where he wasn't able to get to cover...

 

Hell, that might've already happened, it seemed like he was surrounded at this point. Unless he tried to ditch Ada entirely, he probably wasn't going to be able to get out of the range of the Carrion, and the skeleton warriors... He kind of just had to hope that they would stay occupied on the fighters below him as he moved behind Ada. He held up the Heal Staff in his hand, the light from it growing brighter as he aimed it towards the Ada, a little scowl on his face as he did, "I think we might've made a mistake..."

 

The bright light vanished as quickly as it appeared, his grip on the staff tightening a little bit as he glanced around, a little mumble escaping him as he looked up towards that Phantom that was approaching the boat slowly. He mumbled under his breath, "You really should've let me be the one to lure it out. I can handle magic... I have some practice in taking hits from it when I was trying to learn it... After the first attack from it, if you're too hurt, we need to fall back and... I dunno. Try to get it in range for the others to attack it before it can attack them. They'll be even worse off taking a hit from it then you."

 

He shook his head as he glanced back over his shoulder, a little sigh escaping him as he did. His optimism from the start of the battle was draining fast with the developments that were going, things were looking a bit... Rough. For him specifically. He was definitely caught in a bad spot, he shouldn't have rushed towards Ada the way he had... Mistakes were made.

“Your beast finally found his sealegs, did he?” 

"Took him long enough, but yeah, he did. Now let's clean up this mess," Raynor replied, spinning his lance. he had been struck by an axe, but the damage wasn't too bad. He'd just keep fighting through it. He stopped spinning his lance before stabbing straight ahead, attacking the skeleton in front of him with all his might. He wanted to make sure that he defeated that monster as fast as possible. As he finished, he heard Susanoo yell something. 
 
“Phantom! Steer clear of it!” he shouted over the clamor of battle. “That means you too, girlie! Dragon scales won’t do much to stop that thing!”

"Should we do something about that thing?" Raynor asked as he retracted his lance.

With the group moving out to strike, their offensive had been met with great success. As Rona dove down towards the axe wielding skeleton, she managed to cleave off one of the arms of the skeleton along with some of the bones that were attached to it. Meanwhile, next to her, Leon struck with his own blade  at the lance wielding skeleton before him. Cleaving into its ribs a bit more, the creature was soon left with little to make for a torso, though whatever fueled its unnatural strength seemed to care little for  this fact as it struck out with its lance towards him. Thankfully, Leon had managed to parry the blow away with his shield causing the skeleton to stumble back a bit. 

 

On the starboard end of the boat, meanwhile, the others seemed to be handling themselves fine as well. As Raynor drove his lance into the skeleton before him, it might've stuck into the ribs of creature if the act had not torn a large whole through them all. As Raynor struck the creature, it as well seemed to respond in kind as it stabbed into the hide of the salamander he was riding atop of, though this did little to actually impede or harm the creature. Ada as well, had fired off yet another blast of dark magic which struck the carrion soundly and tore a large chunk of its flesh and feathers off. With its eyes clouded by the shroud from Ada's attack, and Ada herself having a small of residual darkness surrounding her the bird's offensive retort was met with a miss. 

 

With Ada's advance, however, as she had planned, the Phantom took great notice of her. In fact, were Ada paying attention to it, it would have seemed to have had its attention on her since it got above the boat. So, quite like she expected, the dark cloaked creature cloaked in shadow made its way towards Ada. With one of their empty sleeves of the cloak lifting itself up, a coarse blue and white light started to gather around where a hand would have been. The light seeming to be a mixture of both fire and lightning, the ball was sent towards Ada, striking her truly and causing a great deal of pain to her, more so then any of the attacks she had been inflicted thus far had given her. With the attack having landed, Ada retorted with one of her own, sending a blast of dark magic at the figure, and causing the shadows around it to flicker and warble as the body itself was pushed back, though recovered easily.

 

What made matters worse, however, was that after the attack had landed, it seemed as though something had changed within the skeletons and carrion. With those that were able, the carrions had all begun to flock towards Ada, with the one she was currently fighting against still moving to peck at her, this time with more success and second one diving in to strike at her as well. Though Susanoo had done a great deal of damage to the archer, it too began to move forwards, now completely ignoring the Yonan and moving to strike at Ada. With bow drawn back, it fired an arrow that sailed right past Layne and into the back of the shaman. The axe wielding skeleton too had begun its march forward, and though it was unable to get close enough to strike  at Ada, it was close enough to another living being. Readying its axe, it took a large swing into Layne, carving a large cut into the boy's side, before dislodging itself and seemingly having its attention drawn right back to the shaman. 

 

The skeletons that had no hope of making it to the girl instead focused on their opponents in front of them. For Rona, the axe wielding skeleton swung once more and managed to pierce through cormag's hide, though if only slightly with its strike. A retaliation was soon had by the wyvern rider, being able to cleave shatter the skeleton with one mighty drop of her axe onto it. The lancer that had been fighting Leon made way to pierce into him as well, the lance striking him in the cut. Wincing in pain, the boy made one quick slash of his own, separating the skeleton's head from its body and causing the creature to fall to the ground. As the lancer Raynor was fighting struck him, this time for a slightly more effective amount of pain, its life too was cut short as the man managed to break apart what little structure was left of the skeletal foe. 

 

With their foes defeated, Leon looked towards the phantom, and though it was obvious he still shouted out, "everyone! Move to cover those two."

They had almost cleared off the foes on this side of the boat...when disaster struck. Without any enemies nearby Rona was able to watch, in horror, as Layne and Ada were descended upon. No...no, she should have been there! She should have been faster, been closer, to take those hits for her. It should have been her not them! She had spent too much time on this side and she let the others down.

 

If only she could be in two places at once...

 

She had no choice but to ignore the last Carrion. Calling out to Leon, "Commander, please heal yourself, I'll go to their aid right away!" she had Cormag take off towards the group. She couldn't reach that...thing, but she could clear them a path! As she neared them she noticed, with an increasing dread, that one of the skeletons was holding onto a bow....No, she had to...she had to ignore it. She just would keep her attention off it it, lest the sight be enough to shake her.

 

She ended up next to Ada, swinging her axe upon the other skeleton, shattering it with a mighty blow. "I am here now, get behind me, I won't let these things hurt you anymore!"

"Cormag can handle it better than your floating hunk of wood I'm sure,” Rona shouted over the clamor of the battle.

 

Susanoo guffawed, his rumbling laughter in stark contrast with the skirmish going on around him. “That’s some big talk from such a small brat. Score’s three-to-one in favor of this ol’ hunk of wood!” The skeleton he had been fighting (well, fight was a strong word to describe such a one-sided ass kicking) managed to claws back onto its feet and hobble past the distracted Yonan.

 

“Hey! Where do you think you’re going?” Susanoo whipped around to give chase. Skeleton 1 managed to just barely fire off an arrow that struck the shaman in the back before the massive Yonan caught up to it. “That’s my paycheck you’re putting holes in!”

 

No longer in the mood to play with his prey, Susanoo grabbed the skeletal archer by the neck and bodily threw it over the edge of the ship, resulting in one last raspy growl that was abruptly cut short by the “ploink” of something being dropped into the water.  “Why did it have to be skeletons?” he grumbled to himself. He hated the undead beasties; he had encountered them a few times, and every time, they had been too weak to pose a threat and too dead to be any fun.

 

He hoisted his axe onto his shoulder. With the Boring Bones dealt with, he directed his attention to Layne. The kid had been caught good on the side by one of them.

 

“You and your magic friend there gonna be okay?” He started fishing around in his pocket with his offhand. “I’ve got an extra vulnerary or two here, if you all need it.”

Pain.
 
That was all Layne could feel right now. He had been lucky to avoid major injury up to now. He was usually able to stay out of the range of the enemy, or avoid them if they did approach. But everything had gone wrong on the boat. There were no safe areas, everyone had spread too thin, there was no way to avoid all of them...
 
But the skeletons were dead now. That just left the Carrion... They were scary, but not as scary as the skeletons... And the Phantom thing. Ironically, he was probably the person best equipped to take a hit from that one. But as long as the birds were around it... He couldn't stay to try and lure it, or they would gang up on him.
 
But he couldn't run away entirely either. He needed to stay close enough to patch up Rona and Susanoo. They might be able to handle the birds, but that Phantom... "Rona! Do not get too far away from me, that Phantom nearly destroyed Ada just now, I need to be able to reach you..."
 
He winced as he felt the wound on his side trickling blood, his hand reaching over to it to press into it, while he fished around in his pocket for the Vulnerary he kept on him. He began to take a swig of it as he glanced back to Ada, a low groan escaping him, "Ada come with me, we need to... Get out of here and heal up... Let the others start swinging at that thing, we'll support them after we're patched up."
 
“You and your magic friend there gonna be okay? I’ve got an extra vulnerary or two here, if you all need it.”
 
Someone was speaking to him, right? He glanced up as he gave Susanoo a wide grin, sputtering through the pain of the gash on his side as he held up the Vulnerary he had pulled out, "I-I don't go out without one. I think Ada's got her own... But you'll have to check with her. This is nothing..."
 
Bluffing even in pain, never let others see the full trick... He wasn't going to let this little split in his side stop him from making sure no one died. He shuffled away from the fight, leaning against the mast of the boat as he took the medicine, a little sigh escaping him. The pain wasn't going to go away entirely... But this should at least keep him functional.

Raynor sighed to himself as he saw the counterattack defeat the skeleton in front of him. It seemed he and Susanoo had cleaned up shop here, as he couldn't see any more monsters. Now they just needed to clear off the rest of the ship, and they should be good to go. He looked behind his shoulder to see what was going on, and it seemed Ada and Layne were surrounded. 

Yeah, next time, he was going to stick next to them, and make sure this didn't happen again. 

The commander had called out an order to back them up, and he wasn't going to disobey that one. He nudged Gojira, who nodded and moved ahead, stopping right behind Rona. As he approached, he could hear Rona say 

 

"I am here now, get behind me, I won't let these things hurt you anymore!" 

 

"Yeah, the two of us won't let them pass," He said, watching Ada. He'd get next to Rona to make an animal barrier, but he was pretty sure Ada wouldn't want to be knocked down by Gojira.

While Rona seemed to think he would be better off healing, and he certainly was not feeling at 100% right now, the boy did not want to back down when the rest of his team was being struck down upon by the shadowy creature. Making his way up, Leon tried his best to make the fight easier on the others by intercepting one of the carrion, bringing his blade up and striking its abdomen. With his blade striking true, he managed to deal a good chunk of damage to it, parts of the carrion's ragged form spilling onto the boat, but the bird still flew. Looking to the boy before him, the Carrion let loose a screech and then dove downward, attempting to strike the boy. Raising up his shield, he managed to deflect the blow entirely, making for a counter strike with his sword and splitting the bird monster in half. 

 

Meanwhile, with the rest of the crew moving down to take a more defensive posture and healing up their wounds, Ada being internally miffed at Rona's comment, the Phantom seemed responded by merely lifting its empty sleeve, pointing in Ada's direction. The Carrion began to fly forward, aiming for the shaman, though some being unable to reach her and targeting the only thing in that singular direction. With two of them dive bombing the Shaman, only one managed to actually strike true, it's beak giving an annoying peck at her. Two more charged the pirate captain, beaks digging into his flesh, causing more wounds to be produced on his body. 

 

As the Phantom began to idly float forward, it paused merely five feet from its original position. Turning its cloaked head, it took note of both the wyvern and salamander before it, both their riders being able to see the full shadowy yet empty hood where its head would have been. Raising up its sleeve, the same crackling, blue and white light that had struck Ada formed. With one blast of magic, it was sent towards the wyvern rider, striking them and dealing far more pain then any of the likes they had faced in awhile.
