Alex couldn't believe it, this hedgehog spun like a tornado and just brushed off her attack like it was nothing. "I'd bet you a barrel filled with gold that you're wrong, love..." the hedgehog smiled confidently as if she were used to all this. "I can see it in your eyes. You've got sticky fingers. Not just that, I can also see that you've lost damn near everything.... but still keep keeping on out of obligation."

Alex glared at the hedgehog, what could she possibly know about her? "You don't know me... What makes you think you do!?" she exclaimed as she prepared a fireball in her hand. Roxie just smiled. "Birds of a feather I guess... Blake says I have a knack for finding people like me... But how could I not? It's so easy to see it in their eyes."

Alex kept the fireball in her hand but eyed Roxie as she just showed off her cybernetics. "You know that pain? The one where your arm should be. Even when you know it's not there... that you shouldn't be feeling anything." Her smile will be come melancholic. "Very few people can relate, but even fewer people know what the next levels like..." She lowered her arm. "When something more than just a limb is taken. I home, a friend, whatever it might be... that phantom pain is bloody indescribably!"

"Am I right?" Alex didn't want to admit it, but Roxie was right. All that pain, all that loss, it was enough to tear most people apart. The flame in her hand faded away as she lowered it. "Where... Are you even going with this?" she said with the same glare. "I wanna help you!" Roxie stated with the same charismatic smile, but something caught her attention before she could continue. "One sec..."

"Wait! What do you mean by... That..." Alex tried calling after the pirate captain and watched as she again brushed off an attack, Zane and Axel's attack no less! What in the world was this girl, and what she going on about? Help? Alex had her hand to her face, all that Roxie said was getting to her.


Meanwhile, the scorpion was giving Cynthia a run for her money. He shot down her javelin with ease and then started unloading clips right at her, she had to turn her whole body metal just to block the oncoming bullets. "Sheesh... Someone's getting trigger happy!" she said as she was about to charge at him, when she broke her mental note, 'watch out for the tail.' The scorpion's tail seemed to come out of nowhere and it melted all of Cynthia's armor off.

"Crap!! Stupid tail!!" she tried to duck in cover again but a bullet rang past her and got her shoulder. "Agh... Ok... I'm gonna have to get versatile here..." she mumbled. She grabbed a piece of rubber that was in her pocket and morphed her body into it, her whole body turned into a shiny, jet black color as she curled into a ball and spindashed at the scorpion, who was trying to get away.

The scorpion saw her coming and released a cloud of gas, but it did nothing to Cynthia much to his surprise. She collided right into the scorpion and sent him skidding across the ground. Cynthia laughed. "How do ya like that? Your acid may melt metal but that's all it's even good for." she said taunting the gunslinger.

Cynthia couldn't believe it, out of the blue a pirate crew had sabotaged the cruiser and were demanding any at all valuables on the ship. Valuables including her Extreme Gear, well there was no way in mobian hell they were taking her board. The rest of the fighters didn't like it either and soon a full scale battle erupted between the two groups. As everyone was taken by a crew member, Cynthia felt something coiling up on her leg. "What the... W-whoa, hey!!"

She was dragged to the ground and was immediately face to face with a mean looking scorpion with a gun. "Whoa!" she morphed her arms into metal and covered her face as he pulled the trigger. She spun around on the ground breakdance style to fling the guy off and jumped back onto her feet. But the scorpion wasn't done as three shots rang out, Cynthia was able to block two of the shots but one grazed her cheek.

The scorpion then tried to sting her but she quickly side stepped and grabbed his tail. "Heh, I guess your the "actions speak louder" type of guy huh?" she said with a small smile. The scorpion responded with simple "Yes" and Cynthia felt a warm feeling on her arm. "Shoot!!" she flung the scorpion away and looked at her arm, some kind of acid was eating away her metal. "Great... Mental note... Keep away from the tail..."

The scorpion unloaded the rest of his clip at Cynthia. "Craaap!" she blocked the shots with her still metal arm and ducked in cover. "Who brings a gun to a fist fight?" she mumbled before taking a quill from her head and morphing it into a metal spear. She rolled out from cover and threw the spear straight at the gunslingin' scorpion.



Meanwhile, Alex had her hand full dealing with the pirate captain herself. "So what can you do?" Alex was done with this lady's smug attitude. "I'll show you what I can do!" Bearing her fangs, Alex launched a jet of fire at Roxie. She stood completely still, with the same look on her face, and with a simple movement of her hand she killed off the stream of fire in an instant. "What the!? Grrr..." Alex stood silent for a moment, this Roxie person, her hands were almost mechanical. Great, a cyborg pirate, fan-friggen-tastic.

She rushed at Roxie with a flaming slash and the hedgehog pirate waited till the last moment again before firing a kick to meet Alex's claws. Metal legs too?! What was this lady?! The resulting collision of attacks created an explosion and smoke clouded the area. Roxie had immediately gotten behind Alex and threw a punch at her, but it seemed slow as she dodged out of the way of it.

"I really didn't have a choice in the matter, love... I'm sure you know what that's like." Alex froze up at the pirate's words but shook herself back to her senses. "We're nothing alike... Your just a cold blooded pirate for all I care!" she said tossing a fireball at Roxie, but before the fireball was a foot away from Roxie it imploded on itself causing multiple mini fireballs to shoot out at her. It worked on Cinder, maybe it'll work now.

Sienna could feel a sharp pain hit her in the thigh as a javelin from one of the bandits hit her straight on, the bandit she attacked had also thrown an axe right on her snout causing her to let out a loud yelp. The bandits had all but surrounded the group, was this it? The end of the road? Sienna could barely stand and blood was staining her white fur, she could barely breath because of her punctured lung, was she truly going to die here?

Suddenly, a miracle happened. An arrow had struck down the bandit leader and a group of people came out from the trees and started laying waste to the bandits, Sienna was close to crying, she was happy to see reinforcements come to the group's aid. After all the bandits were taken care of, the combination of pegasus knights dropping dirt and wind magic put the large forest fire out, the conflict was truly over.

Sienna transformed back to her human form and tumbled onto her knees, contrary to what some believe, her wounds had transferred over to when she was in her fox form. The leader of the Pelinna Patrol as they were called approached the group.

"You," he spoke sternly, "I'm not sure if you realize what you've done, but you almost destroyed the forest with your little stunt." He glared at Ciela, most likely having heard her earlier words. "Fire is not a toy you can just throw away when you're done playing. You're lucky we were able to put it out. Thanks for that, by the way," he nodded at Penelope. "My name is Urvan, and I'm the leader of the Pelinna Patrol. Now, I heard about you guys from Olivette, that you'd be coming this way. Said I should help you through the woods," he crossed his arms. "But, after this, I'm not so sure if I want to." They... They wouldn't...

"W-wait... Ciela didn't cause the fire... That was my fault... I'm sorry... I was just trying help and... I'm... I'm sorry..." As she finished her sentence, Sienna fell flat onto the ground. She had fallen unconscious due to her wounds and loss of blood, she needed help quick.

It felt like hours had went by when Helena woke up, she could barely remember what had happened. One second she was trying to help stop Eraser and then... Everything was just a green blur. Helena looked around to find herself in a familiar room, the Silents room and a dark figure stood at the foot of her bed, Shiren. "I thought you were never going to wake up... I'm glad you did..."

Helena tilted her head in confusion as the dark warrior spoke. "What... What happened? Is the city ok, is everyone ok?" Helena asked desperately. "Calm down... Everyone is fine, they're more worried about you right now..." The paladin spoke in a calming, familiar tone. It took a second for Helena to realize who she was speaking to and to realize what had happened, the fact that her eyepatch was missing only made her feel even worse.

"I... I don't know what I was doing... There was just this... Pounding in my head, everything was happening so fast and then..." she went silent, she didn't want to say anymore. Shiren sighed and helped Helena out of bed. "Come on... There's a meeting in the hall, Endymion needs everyone there, even you."

Shiren helped Helena out the door and lead her to the main hall of the citadel, Helena remained silent the whole way there and if she saw Silent Swordsman and Silent Magician she wouldn't even look at them. Everyone saw what she had done, everyone knew what she was capable of now. It wouldn't surprise her if they were afraid of her, that they saw her as some kind of freak, a masochist, a sadist, a monster...

It seems that it was finally time to leave the city, if it wasn't clear enough with Catriona declaring it to those who were in the inn. Sienna headed up to get her things from her room and came back down ready and waiting. As the group started to leave, Sienna gave the innkeeper a friendly wave goodbye and followed after her group. Finally, they were going to leave the city, Sienna couldn't wait to see the forest again, maybe then she can prove her worth and help guide the party.

At the gates of the city, Asura had urgent business to attend to involving his mother. That's a good a reason as any, and with that, Asura left the party. Maybe fate would allow Asura to join back up, but that would more than likely be a near impossible circumstance. The sound of the gates closing solidified the group's leave and they were soon on the road to their next destination.

Along the way, Sienna had opened that little box that was left for her in the inn. It was nice necklace loop, being leather it was very durable, it was nice little gift. The day quickly ended and soon a new morning was upon the travelers, they soon arrived at the Pelinna forest and ventured in with caution. If they ran into Sienna's tribe then that would be a godsend.

The forest was quite peaceful, way more calm and tranquil than the sector, she almost felt at home. Soon they came upon an interesting sight, a red hooded traveler on the road seemed to be examining a small tree. It was almost a familiar sight considering that Sienna was the mysterious hooded figure before joining the princesses group. But before anyone could utter a word, all hell seemed to break loose in an instant!

Axes, spears, and arrows came out of the trees and took the group and newcomer by surprise, thankfully nobody got hurt in the initial attack, but if there was a follow-up... Sienna was already instinctively reaching for her beaststone before Penelope started giving out orders.

"Alois, I need you to get into the trees. Sienna, follow behind him on the ground and cover him. Try and draw out the enemies. Everyone else keep close but move forward and be ready to attack whenever someone appears. Gunther, Edrick, in front. Link, protect Ciela."

She acknowledged Penelope's orders but Sienna stopped for a second. Her senses were already telling her there were more enemies than they could even see... Way more. In fact, she could faintly make out the unusual helmet of a barbarian that was hiding a few feet in the trees. She took the opportunity to transform into her beast form, the embers that circled around her body slowly gathered up into two fireballs that floated above her. If a fire started, she could easily put it out, but she feared that it might hurt Alois in the process as he had found himself in the trees and bushes where the enemies were.

"Alois! Now might be a good time to get out of there, I don't want to hurt you in this chaos!" she called to him before launching the two fireballs in the barbarian's direction.

"Hey...you three, maybe after all of this is over, we can work on the kitchen and prepare dinner for everyone? Perhaps it's best to talk about this again once we're done, however." Mina shrugged her shoulders, Auburn may not be as inclined to fix up a meal but Mina was more than happy to, her many times cooking for herself as she traveled will soon pay off.

Celica soon opened up a hole in the room that led down into the basement, it was dark but hopefully wasn't deep.

"I don't know where else should I open the basement access, to tell the truth. Suppose we can figure it out once we finished cleaning it, right?" Celica's smile turned into a more mischievous one as she stretched her muscles for a bit before looking around the room. "You can descend down using the rope over the northwestern corner of the room. Don't worry, it's only 15 to 20 meters of descent, and I think it's not a labyrinth down there though it's still surprisingly big. Even then though, any source of light is very recommended before descending, just to avoid tripping over anything random or accidentally eating some odd insects or anything. Don't worry about the building collapsing upon you too, our guild building is not that badly maintained despite the displays of earlier.

And yeah, bring brooms and the feather dusters and anything you might find necessary. See you down there!" Celica jumped down, leaving the three guild members to their own thoughts.

"Let's leave her in there for a while. Somehow the motivation to finish repairing this room came back to me. We'll create a new hole and jump down after her later. Perhaps." Mina gave Auburn a stern look this time. "Are you kidding me? "Leave her down there?" That's not right. You can work on this room all you want but I'm going down there to help her." Mina stated looking down into the hole that was the basement entrance. She took a broom and a little flashlight she made during her travels and hopped down into the basement.

The corridor was definitely near-pitch black, how Celica could see was beyond Mina, but the faint glow of a candle answered her question. She followed it and caught up to Celica. "So, what rooms do you need cleaned up?" Mina asked placing the flashlight down to where it lit up most of the room.

As Alex fought her way through the Mephiles Shades, she had only one thing in mind, finding Cinder. With Iblis roaring above and fighting her allies, she had no time to waste, she had to find the one who caused this mess. Just as she threw a knife or two at a few shades, Ken had regrouped with her. "I know you had some sort of rivalry with her...Cinder I mean..." He said slowly.  "But...But I just had to end her!  I just had to make sure no one else got hurt!"  His fists tightened.  "I'm sorry if you had other plans...but I was just so angry."  He clasped his hands together, and pleaded in front of her.  "I'm sorry Alex!  Forgive me!" So... Ken dealt with Cinder, sounded like Alex didn't have to do anything. Still, a part of her felt that it didn't have to end that way, but another part wanted nothing more than to burn that black cat into ash. "We should meet with the others!  They can't finish this alone!" Alex nodded in agreement and followed after Ken, it soon became apparent that the roars from Iblis had ceased, did Axel and the others do it? Did they kill Iblis? As Alex made it up to the tower, she saw that the worse had just started.

 

Iblis was gone, but in its place stood an unusual hedgehog enveloped in flame, this being had also just blasted Blaze straight through the wall of the tower. "Blaze!!" Without a second thought, she rushed into the tower, thankfully Blaze was relatively unharmed and was dusting herself off. "Are you ok? What happened!?" Alex questioned. "Gywnn" she said, her voice shaking in fear, "The first Sun of Mobius.  We had the threat of Iblis under control...but now...he's here.  A myth...something that shouldn't exist." ​Seriously, the first sun? "Gwynn? Ahhhh come on! I thought the threat of some giant evil sun god thing was enough, but this!?" The threat of Mephiles and Iblis reuniting was bad enough but now this? Alex didn't know what to do. "How do we stop him?"

 

Blaze looked concerned, her eyes looking towards the hole she had come from.  "I don't know..." her lip quivered. So... Its all over? Alex looked down in defeat, how could they possibly stop something as great as this. If Gwynn thinks of absorbing mephiles then that's it, game over. There had to be a way to stop Gwynn, anything... Then a thought popped into Alex's head. "You think there's a way we could somehow... Steal his power? Like... Knock Iblis out of him?" It sounded like a stupid idea, but it was the only thing she could think of. Blaze looked to Alex.  Her proposition sounded in her head, bouncing off the walls of her brain.  "I suppose it's worth a shot..." She said.  Taking a deep breath, a large shine emanated around Blaze, and 7 rectangular stones shot forth from her body.  They all had a different hue, and looked fairly similar to the Chaos Emeralds.  They encircled her body, as she started to catch fire all around her body.  "Sol Emeralds!  Give me strength once more!"  In a flash, her fur became a lighter shade of pink, and flames seemed to dance around her fur.  "This will be Dewdrop's final stand!"

 

​Alex nodded in agreement, they were not going to give up so easily, especially to some crazy god. Alex grabbed a knife and lit it aflame. "Ok... This is for those you had slaughtered so you could revive yourself, we're not losing to you Gwynn!" Alex stated charging outside. She was able to catch a glimpse of Axel as the castle shook as if it were in a massive earthquake. Axel was injured but was at least standing and even flipping Gwynn off, this grabbed Gwynn's attention and gave Alex an opportunity. She turned herself invisible and silently rushed at Gwynn in an attempt to drive the knife into his chest.

"yeah, let's just go back." ​Sienna nodded in agreement and followed close behind Alois, that was possibly the most embarrassing moment in her life and probably Alois's too. It was unfortunate that she was unable to find a gift for everyone in the group, she was sad about it in fact, hopefully the next area they visit will have something she could get for everyone. Soon the two made it back to the inn only to find Catriona by herself. With Alois chatting with Catriona, Sienna took the time to take off her hood and let her ears actually get some light. She walked around the inn a bit before she stopped at a table that had a few decorated boxes on it, and to her surprise one of the boxes had her name on it. "Strange... Is this for me?" She picked up the apparent present and examined it curiously.

Prunus, the City of Adventures, sounded like a dream or paradise for the young figure who strode into the bustling city. Throwing the hood off her traveling cloak, Mina gazed in awe of the center of the city, stalls of food, jewelry, and other curios lined the streets while booths serving as sign ups for various guilds and factions stood at the very center. Mina grinned a fanged smile. "Well... Today's the day. Finally, I get to join a guild and make a name for myself... Ha, that's a stereotypical way of putting it... Ah well." ​With her Eagle Eye rifle slung on her shoulder, whip and her waist, and a bag of supplies on her back, Mina headed straight to the center where the booths were. The booths as mentioned, each represented a guild, but one booth caught her attention.

 

“Come here, come here, we at Cherry Heart are still accepting new guild members!”​ The call of the blue-haired woman at the booth could be heard through large crowd, with that much enthusiasm, Cherry Heart sounded like a great guild. Mina walked up to the booth where the blue-haired lady and her stern looking friend waited for any at all who would sign up. ​"Afternoon, I'm here to sign up."

 

​"Excellent, we just need you to answer a few simple questions." ​the blue-haired girl stated with a friendly smile. ​"Sounds easy enough, ask away."

 

​"Ok. First, tell us about yourself, what's your name?"

 

​"Mina Vale White, at your service. Daughter to Mr. Gregory White, an inventor in the city of Taxus." ​the two girls gave a subtle look to each other. ​"We have heard of Mr. White... We are sorry to hear that he's no longer with us..." ​the lady said in a sad tone. ​"It's ok... I'm carrying on for him." ​Mina said in a less peppy tone.

 

​"Alright... Next question, why do you wish to join this guild?"

 

​"I always dreamed of adventure. Epic quests, great warriors and mages, unimaginable treasure... I want to experience new things in my life and make a few friends along the way if possible, that's my reasoning." ​Mina explained.

 

​"A good answer... Ok, do you have any goals to achieve in this guild?"

 

​"Well... One of these days... I want to sail the skies on my own airship... Just me and my little sister back in Taxus. Might build one once I get the supplies and funds from working in this guild."

 

​"That does sound nice, a wonderful ride through the clouds, good luck on that." the lady responded happily. ​"Next question, what kind of ability do you possess that might help you attain that goal?"

 

​"Weeeell..." ​Mina brought out her Eagle Eye rifle. ​"Beautiful, isn't she? I kinda followed in my old man's footsteps... I have a knack for creating little gadgets here and there if I have the supplies, Plus, I have exceptional agility and senses compared to a normal person." ​she explained, smiling proudly. ​"Well... You have quite the gift. I hope you'll improve on your skills." ​the lady said with an approving smile.

 

"Last question, are you willing to accept the guild’s terms and conditions for a membership?"

 

​"Of course, rules are rules, right?"

 

​"Ok, you just need to sign here and you'll be good to go." ​the lady handed a paper that already had a few signatures on it. Mina wrote down her name in a fancy, cursive style just like her father taught her and handed it back to the lady. With a kind thank you it was done, Mina was finally apart of a guild. With tons of free time still available, she took off towards the stalls along the streets to have a little look around.

Helena couldn't believe the chaos that had suddenly broken out, she could already feel the headaches setting in. An attack on the citadel, screams of terror, it was like something out of a movie, and she was supposed to stop it. Buster Blader, Gaia, and Dark Magician each spread out over the city and the silent took a hold of Helena. "C'mon, we gotta stop them and save people!" Swordsman called out. Helena nodded and followed after the two, or rather they dragged her along. The Igknights were burning the place up, they looked like such a heroic archetype of monsters why were they helping these freaks?

 

"Hold on, I'll get some help out..." Helena said getting free of the Silents, she got out her duel disk and drew a few cards. "I guess there are no rules in a situation like this... I summon Genetic Woman and Psychic Snail!" When she placed down the cards, the monsters appeared beside her, rearing for battle. "Now I activate Burden of the Mighty and equip Psychic Sword to Genetic Woman!" Upon activation, an aura started emanating from Helena and a glowing green blade appeared in Genetic Woman's large claw. As Helena was about to send her monsters out, a loud roar echoed throughout the citadel. She looked up to see an enormous monster on the tower. "Agh... No... That can't be... A Wicked God!?" Helena's head was pounding harder and harder just from this monster's energy, it had to be a Wicked God, and it was looming over Meiro. "I... I have to help them... I have to help... So many people..." The glow under her eyepatch was glowing brighter and brighter.

 

"I gotta help him... Psychic Snail, Genetic Woman, help Silent Swordsman and Magician in the citadel, I got to help them fight that thing. Silent Magician here... Use it only if absolutely necessary, ok?" She said handing a Mirror Force to Silent Magician, after which she turned and ran towards the tower where the Wicked God was. "I hope Burden of the Mighty works on this thing..."

Sleeping in a warm bed was definitely better than sleeping out in the wild, Sienna had never felt more comfortable since starting her journey. Of course, all good things must come to an end, Sienna woke up with a soft yawn with Penelope greeting her on the edge of her bed. She handed Sienna a note that she must've given to the others, it was asking if the members of the group had any issues or concerns.

"Issues... Well, for me only one thing comes to mind... I just want to make up with Ciela, after I showed everyone what I could do she's been... Distant compared to everyone else... Almost like she fears me..." Sienna stated with a bit of a sad tone. Penelope seemed to think for a moment before turning back to Sienna.

"That's a good point, I'm glad you noticed that. Do you have any ideas on what you could do about that?" Penelope asked with a warm smile. Sienna's ears twitched a bit as she thought. "I already tried apologizing to her... But she still won't say more than a few words to me... It's like she hates me for surprising her back then... And fears me for what I am... I have no clue what I could do..." she stated.

"Perhaps I should put you together during combat. Stay close and maybe you can form a bond." Penelope's face lights up. "Would it be possible for you to help her move around?" She paused for a second before continuing. "But if she's afraid of you...Perhaps we need to get her used to your fox form."

Sienna thought for a moment and seemed to show a little hope in her eyes. "You think that will help? I don't want anyone to be afraid of me... If you think this will help then I'm more than willing to try... I could help her get around easily..." she said with a hopeful smile. Penelope claps her hands together. "Then its settled. We will try and get her used to you and have you help her around. Is that all, then?" She leans in, as if trying to read Sienna's expression.

"Y-yeah... That's all... Oh and please tell those two to stop calling me funny names please..." she said referring to alois and asura. "Of course. Now, you can go, I've got a lot to do after all." Sienna nodded and watched Penelope leave the room. "It's really nice of her to help me like that... Maybe this group won't be so bad after all..." Sienna got up from her bed and gathered her things before heading out the room.

"It's actually pretty simple. When you create a flame...your mindset shifts the properties of it. In the midst of combat, without a clear mind, the fire only knows to destroy." Blaze created a pure looking flame, simple in color. "Nothing special about this flame, right? But what if I told you that I have treated the wounds of many an ally by just holding a flame over them?" Blaze clasped the flame, and placed it into Alex's single hand. "This is the flame of life. To create it...you must empty your mind, and give in to all the happiness in your life. Those warm fuzzy feelings will overtake the property of your fire."

Alex looked over the innocent looking flame, it flickered in a graceful way, not like the fierce flames that she was so used to creating. And warm, fuzzy feelings... In her mind there were only a couple, her time with her family before the fire, the impromptu skydiving lesson with Axel... She actually did have a few good moments in her life.

"Cinder knows of this, but hate blinds her senses...I hope to guide her to a brighter path, but for now, her flames are scarred with darkness. I'm sure you could tell during her trial to see if you were worthy. I have never seen such a young Mobian hold such malice before. For an old lady like me who has seen such tragedies, this is an easy flame to create. But creating a healing flame...it takes joy to do that. Only the prime Pyromancers can learn such a feat. But I believe you have the potential to do this...and so much more, Alex."

A prime pyromancer, one that could balance between destruction and life. Alex would've called Blaze crazy right then and there, that fire was nothing more than means of destruction. But all that she said, it started to make sense to Alex, in a way. She took a deep breath and concentrated a little. "If I do learn how to wield this flame... Will it help me to aid my... Friends?" she was a little hesitant to ask this, the whole time she was with the group she was just the group's destruction artist along with Chimera. Maybe now, she could do something better for the group.

Her thought process stopped however when the doors to the room bursted open. "A-Alex..." Axel tumbled out from the door and laid wheezing on the ground. "Axel! What the hell happened to you!?" Alex ran to his side and lifted him up a bit, he was badly beaten and even had what looked like a painful burn mark on his shoulder. What could've done this to him?!

Alex's fireball had successful hit its mark after curving under Cinder's fire, she gave a slight smirk as Cinder belched out smoke after swallowing her flamethrower.

"What is the meaning of this?!" Blaze cried as she came running in. "Cinder, this was not supposed to be combat training! This was supposed to be a lesson in the ways of pyromancy!"

"Apologies...again. But why her Blaze?! Why not me! I've been leader of the royal guard for five years now, and you want to train this...ONE-ARMED LOW BREED, in our ways!"

Low breed!?! Alex's blood started to boil, she was just about to take one of her knives and throw it at Cinder's head. Thankfully, Blaze had sent her away leaving only herself and Alex in the black flame covered room. Blaze absorbed every single ember in the room and condensed it them into a floating ball of light. "Tell me something, Alex dear...do you know of the duality of fire? The balance of Pyromancy itself?"

The balance of pyromancer? Where is there balance in something that can only destroy? "... Don't know anything about balance..." Alex finally said. "Fire has always been destruction to me... And to everyone around me..." her mind went back to those ghosts, their panicked screams at the sight of Alex's fire, it gave her chills even now.

Berry couldn't handle these minior much longer, thankfully Hailey came in with her Lunatone and Solrock to help out in the fight.

"Oly oly oxen free!"

Lin looked to the sound Sineva's voice to see that the helicopter was taking off. "Oh no, Berry one more Hurricane!" With a whistle, Berry sent another Hurricane out at the flying Pokemon, halting their attack for a few moments. Without a second thought, Lin grabbed hold of her Oricorio and high tailed it onto the helicopter.

She took a seat in the vehical and allowed Berry to rest on her lap, the frail little Oricorio couldn't have taken another rock type attack. Lin was brushing her little bird Pokemon's feathers as she listened to Lip explain the plan.

"The mission specifics list that my father was headed to Ula'ula Island. He was supposed to be going to Malie City. So, that's where we are going." Ula'ula? Lin had never seen that island to her knowledge, though she really didn't get a chance to see all of Alola.

"Well... No turning back now, right?" she said in a bit of a nervous tone.

"YOU WILL MIND YOUR TONGUE! BEFORE I BURN IT!" Alex had just spoken to Blaze when another cloaked figure, revealing herself to be a black cat of sorts, got between her and Blaze. She had created a flame in her hand and seemed ready to attack, Alex seemed to shudder from the unnerving black tint that the fire had. Thankfully Cinder, as she was called, stood down as Blaze discussed the situation. After a quick chat, Blaze and her soldiers escorted the group through the skies and the group finally landed at their destination, Dewdrop City.

The city itself was a lot larger than Cha'Aqua was, the castle itself loomed over the large city. "That barrier of yours saved a lot of lives... Wish Metropolis had something like that..." Alex mumbled as she looked out towards the boundaries of the barrier. "Yes...as I've mentioned before, this city is protected by a special barrier. It keeps the darkness out...not even an Elder God can penetrate it's defenses. Dewdrop is practically impregnable. We took as many refugees as we could...but not all could be saved." Refugees? So there were some survivors from the genocide after all.

"But let's not dwell on the past. The past is always filled with such dark things...instead, let us work towards the future. Speaking of work, we must work on your technique...every single last one of you!" Work on their technique? What, she was going to train them? "And you my dear...shall receive special training from yours truly. Ohohoho! But...telling by your aura...we have a lot of work ahead of us! So we start immediately!" Alex raised an eyebrow at this, trained by Blaze herself, effective immediately. The idea of being trained by a legend seemed to stick in Alex's mind, but what could be so interesting about a thieving feline like her?

The cat from earlier, Cinder, motioned for Alex to follow her into another. She let out a disapproving sigh before entering into the room. "Ok... So whats this all about, huh?" she obviously wanted answers. She was a one-armed thief, whats so interesting about that?
