While the two axe users had managed to swing and miss against their mark, the womanly-looking man on the giant bird-like creature, they brought themselves back and got ready to strike at them again. However, taking his eye off them for just a moment, the barbarian hadn't noticed that the flier had circled away from where they were. He didn't get a chance to look for them as a sword slashed hard across his back, causing him to let out a pained scream before dropping.
Meanwhile, the barbarian Rona had attacked was kneeling on the ground briefly, trying to get over the massive hit he had just received. As he brought himself back up, though, ready to strike at the wyvern-rider once more, he was greeted with an axe striking his other shoulder, causing him to crumple onto the ground lifelessly. While Rona was continuing her fight up front, Leon looked to the side to see that it had been mostly taken care of by the other team, and thus was able to easily focus on aiding Rona out of her current situation. Rushing forward and to the right, he slashed at the back of the fighter who had been attacking the wyvern rider, delivering a nasty cut.
The mercenary that struck Cassia was ready to bring his sword down again and see if he couldn't finish the girl off. However, before he could, he heard the archer girl from behind the thief shout out, and when he went to look he felt a sudden thump hit him in the chest. Looking down, he saw a new arrow lodged in him, and looked prepared to go for another attack, without paying any real mind to the attack, before simply falling down onto the ground, lying motionless.
With the fighter being faced down with the girl in the bizarre armor, the man was ready for round two only to then be hit in the side by some kind of force. Looking over to where it came from, he saw the trailing mist left by the dark magic spell. His face paled a bit, seeing the strange magic in use, only for it to freeze entirely in place as two daggers struck into either shoulder, forcing the man to ground dead.
Following this, the other fighter nearest Rona seemed ready to take another swing at her until he noticed that the wyvern rider seemed good as new. A bit baffled, he looked over to see a person wielding a staff nearest them, and realized what had happened. Getting his axe ready, he hesitated before moving in, and this hesitation was greeted with a swift slash from Chitose, causing the man to collapse onto the ground from his new, fatal, wound.
As the barbarian dropped, the fighter to the side of Aleithe brought up his axe and swung it at the kinshi rider. Managing to catch them off their guard, the bandit's axe managed to find purchase in Aleithe's leg. As the man removed the axe from his target, he was then greeted by his target's sword in retaliation giving him a nasty would of his own.
Feeling the cut across his back, the fighter briefly looked away, wincing in pain. When he looked back, though, he saw that the girl atop the wyvern who had been previously nearly dead was...perfectly fine. In fact, it was as if she had never been hit by any of them. Feeling a bit intimidated by this immortal looking warrior, he looked over to the more injured man who had just cut his back. Hefting his axe, the man struck down with it, which Leon managed to just barely parry the blade away from him. Being knocked off balanced, the Fighter was then left open, and Leon took the opportunity presented. With a swift stab into the fighter's gut, the axe wielding bandit's grip loosened and his weapon fell to the ground as he slumped down onto Leon.
As the company leader was pushing the Fighter away from him, the sword wielding bandit farther back eyed up his opponents. Reasoning that the girl on the wyvern was not someone he would do much against, as his much physically stronger compatriots didn't seem to scratch her, he decided to go for the plain looking swordsman instead. Leon noticed that the swordsman was running at him, keeping some distance from Rona, but couldn't do anything to defend against the attack as the sword bit into his side.
Following this, the barbarian staring at everyone dropping near the wyvern riding girl nodded to his the sword wielding bandit nearest him before charging her. With axe in hand, the man took a swing at Rona, his first blow connecting solidly. Pulling the axe back, too fast for the girl to immediately react against, he slashed again at her, the second blow hitting as true as the first. With a wicked grin on his face, the man seemed very confident in his ability to win this fight.
The sword wielding bandit then took off after him, not caring to try and deal with the wyvern rider, thinking she was more suited to be dealt with by his axe nut companion. Instead, he was interested in the sword wielding girl in the foreign armor. Readying his blade, the bandit charged at her and struck forward slash against the girl, hitting true and dealing a good deal of damage. Pleased with his attack, he was then taken by surprise as the girl retaliated with a strike of her own, hitting with a surprising amount of force behind it. Thinking her to be an interesting opponent, he fixed his posture as he looked ready to continue the duel.
Though in pain, Leon was not willing to give up against the opponent before him. Not really paying much mind to the surrounding forces, he brought his blade up and swung forward at the mercenary. While his strike was successful, he was met with an equally successful strike by his opponent, as they had managed to deftly counter him. Stumbling a bit, the wounds on Leon's body were painfully obvious. However, the Iron Falcon leader picked himself back up, looking at his opponent with an expression unchanged from when he had first started fighting.
