With the group advancing forward, Leon moved alongside the group of Raynor and Ada, following up with them as they had defeated both the nearby skeleton and hound beside them. Moving forward with blade at his side, Leon made his way up and looked towards the Carrion that had been in front of Raynor. Taking a deep breath and straining himself, Leon struck at the creature with one heavy strike. The young mercenary managed to cleave a good chunk out of one of the bird's wings, causing its flight to become somewhat unbalanced and erratic.
All the same, the Carrion seemed to be much less focused on either of the opponents before it, instead moving to strike at the shaman who had just destroyed the axe skeleton. While it's flight was awkward, it still managed to dive and dig its beak into Ada, though dropped to the ground after striking her. Hobbling on the ground, trying to flap its broken wing to get back into the air, its attempts were cut short as a blast of dark magic was shot towards it and crushed its bones under the force of it.
Rona continued to duel with the two skeletons on the more eastern side of the battlefield, the sword one slashing at her yet again. Though the blade only managed to make a single shallow cut into her, it still managed to make yet another one against the wyvern rider. Thankfully for the wyvern rider, the the skeleton was the aggressor here and thus she found her axe strike with far more unerring accuracy against the creature, destroying it as the blade passed through it. The other skeleton attacked, though because it used a lance it both did nothing and in its unlife wondered if it had become proficient with the wrong kind of weapon.
While the group had managed to, mostly, clear the first wave of monsters, the wave behind them, rather than charge forward mindlessly instead seemed to back up. The monsters still seemed to have their attention set on the Iron Falcons, unnervingly their gaze never leaving them as they wandered in their area. Furthermore, it had appeared that the monsters from the eastern side had now come close enough to aid their allies here. To make matters worse, more were approaching from both the east and west side, though the eastern ones had seemed closer. As their current situation became more and more apparent, Leon called out, "Layne, don't get left behind!"
Meanwhile, reinforcements had also been approaching from the south. However, rather than charge the group from the back, they simply seemed to land on the Yumi. Seeing this, Susanoo split off from the rest of the Falcons to go deal with the small raiding party himself.
