<i>Leonus lets out an irritated sigh. It reflected poorly for a knight to need help, but with all this healing coming his way the weapon in hand quickly gets to feeling as light as ever.</i>
"Worry about yourselves!"
<i>The young man shouts as the hydra leaps into the sky. He takes this chance to run under the creature, jumping upwards and springboarding off the creature's tail midswing. As before, the young man swirls his blade in front of him to absorb the creature's fire as he descends towards the hydra's back</i>
<i>His blade switches from the blazing red of the hydra's flame to its original lightning form that faintly glows white as he attempts to strike the blade deep into the hydra's back, sending electric energy straight into the creature's body.</i>
<spoiler>Lightning Strike: Heavy Elec.
Also getting up on the Hydra's Back. Hopefully.</spoiler>
"There's no point in worrying about it. The thing will adapt."
<i>Leonus immediately jumps backwards, swinging his blade to intercept the head charging for him. Unfortunately, his weapon is entirely energy. While it would fill the hydra's body with holy energy, it doesn't actually stop the head, which manages to sink its fangs into his leg before Leonus slashes it away.</i>
"Tch, careless of me. So long as it stops at one..."
<i>As with the original screech, Leonus currently doesn't have a real defense against sound-based attacks, forcing the young man to cover his ears and take a deep breath, focusing his efforts on the hydra as he slowly raises his rapier once more. Though he refuses to show it, they mercenary has taken quite a bit of damage by now.</i>
<spoiler>Action: Focused stance - charge, doubling damage next turn.
hp ~~ 35%</spoiler>
"Tch, cheap trick isn't it?"
<i>Leonus takes a quick step backwards before flinching as a result of the cry. It was pretty obvious where this was going, so the young man brings up his weapon once more, ready to intercept and absorb the attack that seemed to be coming.</i>
<spoiler>defend - reduce damage incoming</spoiler>
<i>Leonus lets out a faint chuckle before responding</i>
"A knight never retreats, no matter the cost. While I appreciate the assistance, its wasteful to cover for me."
<i>As for his blade, having struck the hydra again the weapon alters itself, turning from a blazing brand to a sword of pure, holy light.
with Athena's assistance Leonus is easily able to remain in melee range, stepping forward to aim a flurry of thrusts at the hydra's main body</i>
<spoiler>Action - rapier flurry - 4x light Holy on Lernean Hydra</spoiler>
"Alright, remember to avoid its heads. The creature seems to be getting desperate now."
<i>Leonus remarks as he leaps aside, well out of the hydra's way as the creature leaps backwards.
Soon he would have to deal with its fire breath, but energy-based attacks are easy for him. Just as before, Leonus swirls his blade in front of him, causing it to gather and absorb the Hydra's fire, and using it to imbue his weapon with fire.
Once he's absorbed the creature's energy, he makes a quick lunging thrust at the hydra's leg, choosing to alter his weapon aggressively rather than passively</i>
<spoiler>Energy absorption - nullifies one energy-based attack and changes his weapon's element to that of the attack
Lunging thrust - medium fire at Lernean Hydra.
Passive adaptive technology - as before, upon striking an opponent his weapon reads it for any weaknesses and changes elements to match. In case of a creataure without weaknesses, it settles for a neutral type.</spoiler>
<i>As Leonus withdraws his blade, it begins to glow with a solid white light, free from impurity. Holy, that is. Before he is able to call out, the young man has to cover his ears to protect from the sound. A direct attack he can defend from pretty well, but there's not much he can do about noise.</i>
"tch, how vulgar.
The beast is vulnerable to Holy attacks, if any of you have light-based weaponry, this would be the time to use it!"
<i>His recommendation given, Leonus steps forward towards the creature's rear before making four rapid thrusts of his sword, each time the blade strikes the Hydra, it floods thier body with holy energy</i>
<spoiler>Rapier flurry - 4X light Holy on Lernean Hydra</spoiler>
<i>Leonus remarks as the tail begins to rise upwards. The young mercenary takes a quick backstep to earn a little time to react, before ducking backwards to allow the tail to swipe over him.
As the tail passes, Leonus gives the hydra's tail a quick swipe with his blade. However, rather than clash upon its scales, the electricity arcs off to give the hydra a painful jolt, while analyzing and reacting with the creature's life energy to determine its weaknesses</i>
<spoiler>Attack: Scraping Strike - 1x Medium Elec to Hydra
Passive: Adaptive technology - upon a successful hit Leonus's weapon changes from Elec, to whatever element the target is weakest to. </spoiler>
"Its a simple matter really."
<i>Leonus scoffs from the right side of the stands. The hydra obviously focused on flame, so it wouldn't help as a weapon enhancement. With this in mind, he briefly flickers his blade off, then on to reset it to lightning as he jumps down into the main arena.</i>
"You heard the feline, keep the heads distracted for a moment, it'll be far easier if I can get close."
<i>With his orders given to Fate and Nanashi, Leonus circles around the area towards the backside of the Hydra's body, looking for the first opportunity to sprint forward and get up on the hydra's back.</i>
<spoiler>Attempting to climb the hydra, not really a damage thing yet.</spoiler><div class='edited'>(edited by Leonus)</div>
<i>Leonus remarks while pulling out the small, black cylinder attached to his belt and flicking a button. In an instant, a thin, crackling blade of electricty sparks from the end of the device.
Leonus swiftly swirls the blade in front of him, causing the fire aimed his way to funnel towards his weapon, only to be quickly absorbed and analyzed.
As the weapon absorb's the firey energy, its blade changes from a spark of electricity, to one of fire, all the while maintaining its long, rapier-like form.</i>
"Cheap, but not particularly effective. I recommend we split up to surround the target."
<i>Leonus shakes his head and sighs before remarking</i>
"Quit harrassing the feline and focus on the mission."
<i>With Nanashi still leading the way, Leonus follows up the staircase. Other than the minor scolding he remains silent, with little else to remark upon.</i>
