Chitose/Tellan

The ride to Tellan was rather comfortable, Chitose had to admit. Thanking Aleithe and Reina briefly, she hopped off as they arrived and prepared herself for combat. She took some time to examine her equipment and overheard the leader, and she found herself grouped with Aleithe, Yue and Cassia. It wasn't the most unfamiliar combination for her. It was good enough. She took a second to recompose herself, "Best regards. Let's hope we'll suffer no casualties."

 

Soon the four found themselves at the side entrance, where they could see the main group further away initiating combat already. The town seemed unsavory, and there were many bandits out there. Frankly they were outnumbered.

 

From their own group, the archer Yue went forward and shot at one of the mercenaries. Chitose took that as her own starting shot and rushed forward. She ran right up to the mercenary Yue aimed at, but then dodged to the right. There, she drew her sword and aimed at his torso.

 

"Cassia! Protect Yue! Don't let our archer be attacked!"

"We'll be in the town of Tellan soon. From what I understand there are two entrances to the town, and by extension two exits. I don't want any of them escaping when things go south for them so we'll be splitting off into two groups, one for each entrance. Rona, Layne, Ada, you'll be with me. Aleithe, you're in charge of the other three. You'll approach from the side entrance while we strike from the front."

 

That was the plan. The group had been rounded back up to meet with the boss, and that was when Leon shared his plan. Cassia had to admit, she didn't like not being the one in charge of her group, but what's a girl to do in a life-risking mission where money's on the line, but just deal with it? Leading sounded like a hassle anyway. If Aleithe was in charge, he could take that group leader role, as long as he didn't get Cassia killed as a result of some idiot order. Grouped with him, Yue, and Chitose, Cassia made her way around the town to the side entrance, while the rest of the team went for the front gates.

 

The view from here made this mission out to not be a good one. They were outnumbered, possibly out-armed, and these bandits had the home field advantage for this mission. Cassia loved an uphill battle, but honestly preferred her battles to be a bit less literal. She'd rather take them out quietly, or cheat them out of the town somehow. The first shot toward them, at least out of Cassia's group, came from Yue, firing at one of the bandits. And with that, Chitose went in as well. They were both going for the same guy. It only made sense to try and take him down as quickly as possible then, right?

 

"Cassia! Protect Yue! Don't let our archer be attacked!"

 

"Best defense is a good offense!" Cassia replied, moving in to attack as well, with the same target. Great leadership skills you're showing us back there, Al, she mentally scoffed as she ran in, dagger in hand, and swinging her arm with the intent to stab the fighter once she was in stabbing range.

 

We'd better get a nice paycheck for this.

There's not much else happening on their way to Tellan. Aleithe made sure to check the readiness of everyone's equipment before they went into the town, but even then he wasn't fully confident yet on their chances against these bandits. Not far from the town though, Leon asked Aleithe to gather everyone else, and he did just that, which preluded Leon's last minute briefing before the bloodshed begin.

 

"we'll be in the town of Tellan soon. From what I understand there are two entrances to the town, and by extension two exits. I don't want any of them escaping when things go south for them so we'll be splitting off into two groups, one for each entrance. Rona, Layne, Ada, you'll be with me. Aleithe, you're in charge of the other three. You'll approach from the side entrance while we strike from the front."

 

"Understood, leader. I will prevent them from escaping and lead the rest of us to do the same."

 

The group then split according to the designation by Leon, and now Aleithe led his group towards the side entrance of the town. The bandits didn't seem like they're expecting an attack, and were just hanging around outside of the houses. It seemed that they hadn't fully taken over the town yet, which was quite good. They didn't have a big enough advantage for it to be a concern. Their numbers would serve as quite the concern, but it's not too much for it to be overwhelming. He thought of doing a specific attack order, but it didn't seem like it was needed. Yue opened the attack on Aleithe's side with an arrow towards one of the mercenaries, hitting him squarely. Chitose soon joined in the fray, striking twice toward the bandit.

 

"Cassia! Protect Yue! Don't let our archer be attacked!"

 

Quite a reasonable decision. Aleithe thought it was nice that Chitose was starting to take the lead more and more, just like a noble should. He thought of joining in the fray and finish off the same person, but...he noticed another pathway on their side. It would be a concern if they were ambushed from that side. As he saw Cassia running forward to follow Chitose's order, it was a sign that he had to act soon. And so, he made up his decision.

 

"Chitose, I entrust this side to you, I will look at the other side and see about whether anything should be dealt with there."
 

With that said, he took off with Reina into the skies, and landing on the other side after ensuring that it was clear. Nobody was in position to ambush them, but he noticed two bandits on the other side of the street. They would notice him too, and so he prepared his weapon. If he could draw them safely, it would be ideal.

Rona, Layne, Ada, you'll be with me. 
 
That was all that Layne needed to hear. Now that he knew who he was going to be around, his focus was making sure Ada stayed up...
 
Wait, no. Rona. Rona is gonna charge in and get herself hurt. I know it. Ada will be safer. Maybe. I'll need to stay in range of all three of them, I don't want to be too slow getting to them.

 

A little rumble escaped his stomach as they made their way into the town, a little smirk on his face as he reached into his pocket to pull out one of the strips of dried meat he snagged earlier on. He nibbled on it lazily as he look a quick look around, positioned behind Leon as he rubbed at his chin, "Here we go. Guys, don't rush in too badly. If you get too far away from me, I won't be able to patch you up. I can't afford to go in too far."

 

Of course, Rona immediately charges in, leaving Layne to sigh softly as he rubs his neck. His staff hand twirled it around lazily as he stood on guard, watching and waiting, before beginning to make his way towards a particular section of the field. He gives a thumbs up to Ada as she prepared her attack, humming a little bit as he positioned himself near the corner of a building, before calling out to Leon, "Can you come up here and take care of this guy?! I'll patch up any wounds ya take doing it, I need some cover!"

 

He pointed upwards to the guy closest to Ada, twirling his staff towards him as a few sparks emitted from the end of it. He grins a little bit, giving a small chuckle as he kept himself away from the rest of the combat, clicking his tongue for a moment as he did his best to get a look at the other side of things as well...

As the Iron Falcons struck, the bandits were clearly taken by surprise. This was most clearly denoted by the one bandit shouting, "what the fu-" before letting out a cry of pain as a girl atop a wyvern flew at him and struck with him an axe, dealing a mighty blow that was digging right into his shoulder and nearly toppling him over. While another near him was getting his axe ready to fight the wyvern and its rider, he was then struck by a sudden plume of black, almost solid smoke like, spell striking hard into him. Turning around, he saw that it had belonged to the heavily robed girl, doing some kind of hocus pocus with her book. 
 
Leon sighed as Rona charged straight into the heart of the enemies. He had already known something like that was about to happen, realizing her reckless action to probably be a result of his own poor directions, yet he still figured she'd be fine. Probably. Drawing out his sword, he looked to Layne and flatly said, "it's not gonna be me who needs the healing." With that, while the bandit was who had just been struck by the dark magic seemed ready to attack Ada, he was soon met with Leon's blade running into his chest, causing him to let out one final gasp before falling to the ground dead. With that done, the mercenary leader pushed the body off his blade, looking coldly towards a fighter to his side. 
 
On the other side of things, the few that were to the side were equally surprised by the sudden charge, but the one mercenary's attention was drawn to the side as he felt an arrow strike his side. The mercenary seemed to be made of stronger stuff then the others, and didn't really flinch, though still saying a small, "ow." As he looked over to where the arrow came from, he was then struck by a few sword swipes by some girl in bizarre armor and then finally stabbed by a knife belonging to some red head. He was hurt, though his face didn't seem to show it all. "Ow," once more, was the only indication that he had actually felt any of it. 
 
As the bandit boss saw the group charge in, he looked at them with a start, his eyes darting to both the exotic bird-like creature and then the wyvern. Fixating on the wyvern and the girl on it in particular, he said, "well, I'll be. Looks like lady luck's got my back today." Raising his voice for all to hear, he said, "alright boys, show these louts what they just signed up for!" With that, the bandits seemed to be on the move. Except for the boss. He stayed where he was since, after all, he had to let everyone else know who the boss was. 
 
Enemy Phase
 
The bandits went on the move. The first being the duo near Aleithe. As the barbarian charged at the Kinshi Knight, he swung his axe at the giant bird, though it found no purchase. Soon after this, he was then met by iron and blade from the Kinshi Knight's retaliation, earning himself a nasty cut as well. While the fighter that was accompanying him tried to take advantage of Aleithe's attack to strike at him, the fighter's axe too merely swung and missed. 
 
The sword wielding bandit that had been receiving quite a lot of attention turned to study the targets he was fighting. The only two he cared about were the two in front of him, and with a small grunt he signaled the axe wielding man nearby him to attack the one of the two that he didn't. In this case, the man brought his sword down on Cassia, giving a strong cut across her torso, though not harming her significantly. In response, Cassia had struck the man with her knife, causing that much more damage then he had experienced from her before, though still standing strong.  
 
The fighter that was nearby him went to attack Chitose, bringing his axe down on her, though finding nothing but air where he aimed. 
 
As another of the fighter's had just seen one of his comrades murdered, the man readied his axe as he charged at Leon in a rage. The axe struck him in his side, causing Leon to let out a small cough. However, having expected this, he was given no pause as he brought his blade cleanly into the man's chest. Having stabbed straight through his heart, the fighter seemed to pause, before his hands went limp, and Leon merely pushed him off his blade.
 
The man who had been initially attacked seemed to collect himself, bringing his axe up and striking at Rona, striking at her side and delivering a decent cut to her. This was then followed up by another of the bandits charging at her, striking with his axe and hitting the girl head on dealing a heartier blow then the last. However, he was then struck in return by Rona, delivering a far more devastating strike then the bandit could have ever hoped to do himself. While he was staggered from the sheer force, he was still on his feet and ready for more. Finally, one last bandit charged at Rona, delivering another blow from his axe at her. While Rona was still standing, it was clear that she had taken a good beating from the attacks. 
 
With the other bandits not being able to get in for an attack, they merely moved forward and prepped for the mercenaries forward advance.

Rona's heart skipped in excitement as her attack landed. Excitement that was immediately quashed as she failed to kill her foe.

Not only that but she proceeded to be attacked by not one but three of her foes. Sure, she managed to, in a panic, swing and connect with one of them, but each of the wounds were painful. And they all added up to leaving Rona a mess. She was bleeding profusely and she knew that she wouldn't be able to take much more of that.

 

She should try and get healing...but the healer was behind them. If she went backwards she couldn't be sure she wouldn't keep going. No, retreating even that far was not an option, she couldn't risk abandoning her comrades.

 

And what use would she be if she couldn't handle this much? She had already failed once today. "Never let your foe respond. A warrior kills with a single, clean, blow."

 

She was certain her allies were disappointed in her performance thus far. She had to do more. Go further. She had to prove her worth!

 

Except her path to the leader was blocked off. She wouldn't be able to reach him with these bandits in the way. But she couldn't go back. And she couldn't go forward.

 

Trembling, breathing heavily, Rona felt herself begin to question. Begin to think. Being to overthink. With a shake of her head she shouted and swung her axe down upon the Barbarian in front of her.

 

As she did Cormag let out a fearsome roar.

So far, it went well for Aleithe. The two bandits took his provocation and attacked him, and he managed to dodge both of them and landed a hard hit on the barbarian. Taking off momentarily on top of Reina as the bandits attacking him were still reeling in confusion after his dodge, he took the time to observe how Chitose, Cassia, and Yue were doing. They were still dealing with two enemies right now, and one seemingly had managed to land a hit on Cassia. She seemed to be doing pretty well at least despite of it, and their archer managed to stay safe for now. Now as he was sure that Chitose got that side handled well, Aleithe cirled around the two bandits, and dropped down behind the barbarian he attacked earlier, diving with a hard strike on him, hopefully enough to end him.

 

There were other enemies currently behind him, so hopefully he would be able to draw their attention too from this position.

The mercenary seemed pretty tough compared to most other bandits Yue had fought. The girl shivered in relief at the fact that the others had decided to help her. "Thanks, Chitose!" she bit her lip, "A-and Cassia," then turned her attention back on the enemy sword-user. Not only hardy, but also strong. One swing of his sword had been enough to heavily injure the thief. Sure, Chang'e didn't like the girl, but then again, Chang'e didn't care for most people. Sure, something about her set Yue on edge, but...she had helped her. So she would return the favor.

 

"Watch out!" she warned the thief, loading her bow, before setting her sights on the mercenary, keeping both eyes wide open. Her sifu had taught her not to be tempted to close an eye, as it actually harmed more than it helped. And her sifu was the wisest, smartest person she knew. His words had never once led her astray.

 

Thinking of her sifu, knowing that she was safe...both of these factors helped to calm the previously panicked girl, steadying her aim. Breathing, out, she let loose the arrow.

"Dammit Rona, what are you doing?!" Ada yelled at the wyvern rider, while switching from one tome to the other with ease. "Leon, Layne, hold it down over here! I'll be right back!"

 

Ada dashed to her left, ignoring the discomfort that the heavy robes gave her in doing so. She managed to catch her footing before barreling into one of the buildings, spinning on her heels to face right. She popped open the second tome, quickly beginning to chant as she pointed at a bandit before her. Her target seemed to have missed Chitose with his swing, and Ada saw her opportunity. Her chanting rapidly increased as a dark miasma rose from the pages of the book, lurching forward at the axe user.

 

"Chitose, take him out!" She cried as the semi-solid magical mist obscured her view of the fighter, "Rona's blindly charging, we need to get Layne to her safely!"

This man they were attacking... didn't really sound like they were hurting him. He just seemed to shrug it all off, before swinging his sword down on Cassia. That hurt. Quite a bit. Cassia, in retaliation, swung her knife into the man once again, a fair bit harder this time. That was better. Cassia was about to stab him again, when she heard a voice from behind her.

 

"Watch out!"

 

Cassia turned, to see Yue was preparing an arrow aimed right at the man she was fighting. The thief briefly ducked as the arrow soared over her, and into the man. He seemed done with the fight now. Cassia briefly poked at the now-fallen man with her dagger, to make sure he wasn't getting back up. He was definitely dead. Not getting up. Note to self, check the guy's pockets later. But that could wait. For now, there was still fighting, and although she was only in it for the money, somebody on her team dying entirely because she prioritized looting some dead guy over dealing with the ones that were still alive would just be a massive inconvenience she wasn't willing to deal with. So instead, Cassia got back up to her feet, turned, and winked straight at Yue.

 

"Nice shooting, cupcake."

 

Now then, back to the battle. Chitose was fighting another guy. Best to help her with that. Of course, Cassia didn't really want to get cut by another weapon. That first hit stung like a bitch, and Cassia was pretty sure she didn't want to experience a second hit. So instead, the thief's new plan was to use Chitose as a meatshield, the same way Cassia herself had just acted as one for Yue. Cassia moved herself into a position where she was behind Chitose, and took a brief glance at the dagger she'd just stabbed the other opponent with. With a brief shrug, Cassia took aim to get an angle that went past Chitose and into the man in front of her, before throwing the dagger. Now this is more my style.

"Rona!"

 

A loud groan escaped Layne as he watched the wyvern rider continue her charge, even after the assault she just faced. His face was equipped with a perfectly frustrated scowl as he glanced around the battlefield, doing his best to assess the situation as quickly as he could. Rona was clearly going to refuse to retreat, she kept up her assault even after sustaining heavy damage. A quick glance around the field gave him a look at the others, taking in their wounds quickly as he mumbled to himself briefly, his hand rubbing along his head slowly. "Cassia! Get to me as soon as you can, I'm going to Rona. You're next!"

 

His hand gripped onto his staff as the end of it began to glow slowly, and Layne broke out into a dash towards Rona. His coat fluttered in the air behind him from where it was wrapped around his waist, his hand tossing his staff up into the air as he got close enough to Rona. A brief flash of bright light shone from around it, before exploding from the tip of it. A bright glow surrounded Rona as he caught the staff, twirling it around in the air as a brief rush of relief washing over her body as the worst of the injuries were slowly patched up, the magical energies from the staff slowly fading from Rona's body as he plants one end of it on the ground. "I need a little bit of cover! I can take a hit I think, but I need some support..."

 

This is not good. I am way, way out of position.

Chitose/Tellan

In two clean hits, Cassia downed two enemy combatants, leaving the three clear for the time being. "You did well," Chitose gave the thief her thanks and ran forward. She was worried about Aleithe in the back dealing with the other group of enemies by himself, she couldn't see for herself with the building blocking him from them, but then there were two priorities here to take care of first. One was the fighter near their healer in the distance, the other was the other combatant faraway with similar equipment to the first one they fought. He'd be reasonably tough to take down, she reasoned, but keeping Layne alive was more important.

 

Blade brandished in hand, Chitose closed the gap between her and Layne. There, to her left was the fighter who was too near for comfort. How did this other group's formation become this messy in the small amount of time her attention was preoccupied on the fight on her side? Rather than waste the edged blade gifted to her, Chitose drew out the cruder iron sword with her free hand and slashed at the fighter. "Next time, don't make him come this close to the enemy!"

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. 
 
Enemy Phase
 
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. 
 
Player Phase
BGM
 

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.

"Dammit Rona, what are you doing?!"

Oh no oh no oh no

"Rona!"

Nooooo

 

She cringed as she felt the healing magic work through her body. No, stupid, help someone else. She could take it. She could keep fighting. Dammit all why were they going out of their way to keep her healthy? If she couldn't fight them without risking the others then what good was she?

 

Rona felt her heart leap to her throat as Leon was attacked. Her leader had dodged and managed to kill his opponent, proving himself as superior yet again, but then he got attacked once more! This time by someone more skilled who had managed to land a blow.

 

So engrossed in that fight was she that she couldn't respond to the Barbarian that attacked her, cutting two light wounds into her body. She didn't care. That was not the important point. Leon was hurt badly. And had an opponent hovering over him.

 

She cursed her ill luck. The leader of the bandits was in reach and yet...she couldn't abandon her own leader.

At least this time she only had to move towards more combat, not run away from it all.

 

She urged Cormag into the air, keeping distance from the Barbarian as the wyvern roared again, and motioned for him to move towards the Mercenary. "Layne, heal someone more w...Someone who needs it more! I'll be fine! These wimps can't beat me!" she called out before swooping upon her new target, cutting downwards as she got within range.

Ah. Aleithe felt his own blood blood trickling on his skin. The bandit got his leg. The wound wasn't deep, but it was enough to make it hard for him to move around. He withstood it as he should, and attacked the bandit while he's still close with him. A clear hit, but he wasn't dead yet. The bandit tried to keep a distance between himself and Aleithe, but a wing flap from Reina distracted him long enough for Aeithe to swiftly strike him down.

 

One more down. It was weird, fighting on his own like this. Had he made a mistake? Leon trusted him to lead the side group in this attack after all, yet he chose to deal with this corner on his own. And now he's alone, and had no idea about what happened with the rest of the people here. It was quite reckless, and fighting alone like this felt more like something Rona would have done and probably would be something that got her close to being killed again.

 

He shook his head, and ordered Reina to take flight instead as he used a scrap of clothing to bandage his wound. He could see the leader from here, so perhaps...he had the opportunity to strike at him directly.

 

"...I really am starting to sound like Rona. I'm sorry."

Ada nodded as Cassia took out the barbarian, watching Chitose's back as she headed to begin clearing the way. However, she didn't expect to see Layne charging in to heal Rona, eve with how grievous her wounds were.

 

"Layne! Stay back, not y-"
 

He was healing Rona before she could finish. With a curse under her breath, the shaman girl hurried to follow Chitose back, only to witness her getting attacked by a mercenary, receiving a nasty hit. The myrmidon handily riposted, but the enemy swordfighter still stood. Ada took a place behind Chitose as her chanting reached a fever pitch, flinging her free hand at the mercenary. The miasma was upon the sworduser, Ada biting her lip in hopes it would hit. She had made more of a wall to protect the healer, but there was no guarantee it would work.

 

"Rushing in will only get us killed!"

"Don't tell me who to heal!"

 

After a brief, uncharacteristic snap at Rona, Layne grabbed his staff and pointed it directly towards Leon. A bright flash of light began to build up on the tip of his staff, before he looked directly to Rona, "It's my job to keep you all alive! If you go charging in like this, I can't keep up. You were in the most danger. I made a decision based on that."

 

Layne shifted his position to Leon's other side as he let the magic flow, Leon's battered and bruised body was reinvigorated as Layne channeled the light towards him, a little groan escaping him as he rubs his head softly, before beginning to speak again, "...Okay, it looks like the worst is done. Get everyone who's injured over to me as quickly as possible guys. We still have two more to take care of. Just give me some cover and get the others together..."

 

He rubbed at his head again as he mumbled, staying positioned behind Leon as he glanced around, taking stock of the field. He blinked at Ada, before his eyes widened a little bit, "Ada, be careful!"

 

His focus shifted back around the field, trying to get a feel for who was injured and where his next move should be. His hand tightened around his staff as he took a deep breath, his eyes closing for a brief moment as he tried to calm himself down.

 

Rona is going to get me killed one of these days.

Yue gulped as she took in the events of the battle. Layne had gotten to Rona right on time. If he hadn't made it... The archer bit her lip. That would've been bad.

 

And then the rest of the bandits fell over like bone tiles, or dominoes as others called them. There were just two left. A barbarian and the boss barbarian. Both of them looked really, really scary. I don't want to do this I want to run away but I can't run away I have to be brave my friends are in danger actually they look fine? Should I just...hide behind this building then? Honestly, she wanted to, but that was probably a bad idea.

 

Good idea, bad idea, in the end, she just had to go with the idea that was good, right? So...one step forward, two steps forward, three. There you go, Yue, she cheered internally. You're walking forward.

 

And then she was five feet away from the barbarian. It felt like those few steps had taken forever, but really, they hadn't taken very long at all. Taking a deep breath, the girl swung her bow up in a practiced movement, nocking an arrow and drawing the string back, and releasing it along with her breath. She trembled right afterward, hoping against hope that the bandit decided not to target her. Attack someone else, attack someone else, wait that's mean, uhh, attack nobody, attack nobody...

Cassia watched as the Iron Falcons - through their combined efforts - caused most the rest of the bandits to drop like flies. This wasn't really much of a fight after all, was it? She still stung from that attack earlier, but otherwise... it was like they weren't trying at all. If bandits weren't notoriously stupid, Cassia would think something was up, but in her experience, bandits relied on brute force because they couldn't think their way out of a paper sack. Seemed these ones weren't even able to defend their loot with the bandit go-to of brute force either. What a shame; they would all die, and Cassia would make sure to check the bodies for anything valuable once the fighting was done. Although, she had her doubts on anything of value popping up; if they didn't have wits and they didn't have strength, Cassia wasn't sure how to feel about their luck.

 

After all, they had gotten the attention of the Iron Falcons.

 

With only one guy left besides the boss, everyone didn't seem to want to waste any time ganging up on him. There wasn't really any flair to that, but Cassia couldn't blame someone for wanting to get the job done and get paid as quickly as possible. After Yue fired off her shot, Cassia followed up by running up to the opponent's side, and swinging her trusty knife at him. I'm always up to get some easy money, but this is ridiculous.

Chitose/Tellan

Luckily the situation wasn't as drastic as Chitose first thought. The enemies began dropping one by one, and as Ada moved behind her and blasted the Mercenary besides her with dark magic eliminating him entirely ("Much appreciated, Ada."), Chitose saw only two enemies left. A tougher-looking Barbarian all the way in the back, and the subordinate Barbarian right in front of her. Chitose was a swordsman, so she naturally felt inclined to target the closer opponent.

 

With both of her swords held in her hands, Chitose swung her left hand holding the Iron Sword at her target. But it was a feint, the maneuver instead allowed her to sheathe her left hand blade while surprising the opponent. It was at best an improvised form or technique she came up with on the spot and wasn't very graceful, it didn't even have a name. But it was enough to allow Chitose to, with her right arm that went unfocused on due to the feint, slash down vertically.
