Itachi, the owner of a shady corporation, has recently traveled to Los Vegas after the reports of a violent monster attacking gamblers came to light. After briefly investigating a ravaged casino, Itachi was able to uncover a victim of an attack, giving him a clue as to the identity of the suspect after an autopsy was performed. He prepares for a confrontation by secretly contacting mercenaries beforehand, giving them a brief explanation of their mission. He has explained to them that they were to meet outside the target's house, whose address he disclosed, early in the morning in order to minimize his chance of escape. This thread will cover a single battle, following an ATBish system. At least once per day I will update, ignoring everyone who hasn't posted. You will also need to give a brief description of your character's abilities as well as defining what role they primarily fall into (DPS, Tank, Healer, Support, Balanced). At least one DPS is necessary. Handicap adjustment is available with consensus. Itachi waits outside the elegant mansion, holding his hand out to it for a moment. Tapping his feet impatiently, he crosses his arms and leans back against the extravagant gate while he waits for his mercenaries to arrive.
"Lo, and behold, I swore that I would return once the time came." Grimnir descends upon the field once more, gracefully landing with a flourish of his long, flowing scarf. The man arrives clad in the finest silver armor, which gleans in the morning light, while wielding a long, silver spear with his left arm "Villains will regret meeting the one and only Mad Cyclone, Hurricane of Destruction and mightiest of the gods of war." Grimnir is a character with balanced stats, but a complete lack of supportive abilities, making him focus entirely on DPS
*Tenkai sighs as he approaches his target location alongside Grimnir.* Yes. Yes. Whatever this Shakespearean loon wants to think. *Tenkai sighs* Almost makes me miss that demon... Tenkai is a support role. His typical moveset inflicts status ailments and he can summon Yokai to attack for him, which is his main source of damage.
"Ha, I'm not falling for that one." Grimnir laughs haughtily, breathing out a self-satisfied sigh before noting "Everyone knows Shakespeare isn't real."
*Walking along the street with two bags of shopping, Shakespeare gasps and runs over to Grimnir.* WELL I NEVER! TO SAY THAT I, THE GREAT PLAYWRITE WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, IS NOT REAL! WHY, YOU SPEAK THE LANGUAGE I CRAFTED! READ THE BOOKS I PIONEERED! WATCH MOVIES AND SHOWS THAT ARE EVOLUTIONS OF THE THEATRE PLAYS I INVENTED! I AM THE CRAFTER OF MACBETH, ROMEO AND JULIET AND THE GREAT MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM! TRAGEDY AND COMEDY ARE ARTFORMS AND I AM THERE MASTER! TO THINK I AM NOT REAL IS SPITTING IN THE VERY FACE OF THE WORLD ITSELF! FOR MY PLACE IS ON THE GLOBE'S STAGE! AND WITH THAT DISGRACE TOLD, I SHALL LEAVE THINE FOOLS SIGHT! GOOD DAY SIR! *Angered, Shakespeare leaves.*
{Valerie seemingly just phases in from nowhere, the only thing that could notify the other two men that arrived to the target location first was the sound of a breeze.} "Boy, do I feel like my presence is overdue! Then again, it's better late than never as they say." {The girl appears, not at all concerned with armor, nor was she concerned about appeasing the others with her sluggish arrival. She took out her phone and began to play music.} "My little sister told me to go here again, because I forgot we were supposed to be here once more. What a shame..." Valerie's style focuses most on speed, and as a result, relies on evading any possible hits most. Her main source of damage output comes from her Silent Song (light magic) and sometimes weapons (whip and circle blade). She can slightly support the others, but she's mostly out for herself.
Gael arrived on scene in a tacky trench coat suit and hat but still ready to go preform the task at hand as straight forward as she was. She walked up to the other outside the mansion and gives a small bow before the others. “Usually there is two of us but I apologize Torrick usually takes a while to get onto the scene as he usually does we can commence regardless of him.” She’s set herself straight and started to gaze around the scene waiting for things to commence and fiddling with her Poket. While Gael and Torrick are a two in one they both share a similar structure of being tanks that can soak damage and make defensive buffs to last longer. Gael focuses on more range combat and Torrick likes playing up close and personal taking all the attention.

Itachi glosses over the party, noting that the ones encompanying him before where all here. "Ah, yes, i'm glad you're all so enthusiastic about this. With any luck, this may be the last contact with have with each other. Just as a note, we're working outside of the scope of the law, so I suggest you all be wise about how you conduct yourselves afterwards. That's all, now let's get down to business." Itachi then slices through the gate with his light blade, marching up to the front door and entering into the grand foyer. The wide, spacious room would remain dimly lit until the entire party was present within. A man would stand on the mezzanine, griting his teeth as he glares down at Itachi. The mysterious man jumps over the railing, landing on his feet in front of the party, who may feel an impact from the unnatural force exerted from the man who had big and gnarly clawed hands, like that of an animal. The lights go on, which may allow Grimnir to see that the man was identical to the man who was holding the photpgraph at the casino. Demon Man: "Let's get something straight, i'm not looking for a fight. I'm only trying to nip a problem in the bud, here." Itachi: "So, instead of setting a trap or running away, you're simply letting us come to you? A bold move, but not altogether unexpected." Demon Man: "What's your endgame, here? You can't possibly have gone to these lengths for money. If that's really what it's about, take all you want and let me be done with this." Itachi: "I will not relent until you are either captured or dead." Demon Man: "And what possible motive could you have for that? Some backwards sense of justice?" Itachi: "You cannot possibly understand my motives." Demon Man: "What? Do you think you're above everyone, or something?" Itachi: "Nothing of the sorts, rather, my mind is not subject to the confines of mortality." Demon Man: "So, you're trying to carry out some sort of divine plan?" Itachi: "You think too narrow. Gods are no different than ordinary men with cosmic powers. Worship does not turn the scorned into saviors, at the most it would merely inflates one's ego." Demon Man: "So are you saying you're a god!?" Itachi: "I am saying I am an ordinary man with cosmic powers. As an ordinary man, all you need to know is that I think defeating you is the right direction. That's what matters here and now." The Demonic Man would feel as though he gained a shallow understanding of Itachi, feeling unnerved by his idealogy. Demonic Man: "Humans are such cruel creatures, even more so than the prejudiced YHVH. At the very least, I hope you unwitting merceneries will see reason." The Man stares pleadingly at the party Demonic Man: "Rob me all you'd like but please, involve yourself no further with this man." Itachi looms back at the party as well, curiously.
Grimnir lets the other two talk for a moment before clearing his throat "Um.. Hello? Local War God here, champion of justice hero of... Anyways, I feel like I should probably get a say in this? Seeing as you're kinda judging my friends and all." Grimnir sounds a bit.. Awkward, for the first time in a while. Maybe ever. His usual cheerful, chuuni-like speech is dropped for something a bit more serious "Us Gods are a bit more than just some dude with a totally wicked weapon. Kinda like that uncle guy said, with great power comes great responsibility. Its our solemn duty to use that power to protect those who can't and set an example for the people we serve." Grimnir lets out a sigh, shrugging his shoulders for a moment before adding "Left to your own you humans always end up fighting, forcing us gods to step in anyways." Next Grimnir turns specifically to the Demon man, asking "I mean you wouldn't want your daughter to get hurt for something like this right?"
Gael would be remanding quiet as well for the duration of the others conversing with her own curiosity that she keeps right to herself, past that she slides in her own comment. "I won't really chose between this conflict the I learned my lesson on that. Not trying to have something personal it's how it goes least there be huge changes. That said hear the others out I guess before making such a harsh action, blood on your hands and all." She was direct with that comment and just went back to being the quiet listener mostly just putting the choice on the others to figure what they wish to do with these two. Luckily Torrick wasn't here otherwise he would screw around and probably make a brash wrong choice.
{Valerie's music plays in the background as she aimlessly gawks at the scene playing before her. She yawns, almost not even noticing the music blaring from her phone before inserting her headphone jack inside.} "I don't like siding. Staying neutral for now seems to be the thing that breeds the least effort, and the least violence. Needless violence seems to spiral towards needless murder as well, and murdering you would be wasted energy..." {The girl is able to spurt out her nihilistic ideals with a completely straight face, almost smiling as well when she did it as if she were doing a bad job of decieving with her words and only relied on facial cues.} "That being said, didn't somebody just say you have a daughter? I didn't even know that myself. Having friends are nice, but since I don't have anybody to make friends with, a selling point has been lost. This situation looks one-sided considering who our employer is...who is he again?..." {Of course, she might have fallen asleep were it not for her party literally trying to converse with a supposed demon person that's in their way, so she gives a few more cents to the discussion. Afterwards, she casually scrolls through her phone, smirking to herself as if she came to a satisfied conclusion already.}
*Matsunaga would stand behind the others, not saying a word. Instead, he'd take his pipe from out of his coat and breath the smoke into two areas on either side of the front of the house. Finally, he chuckles lowly.* Yokai weave such sweet sob stories but I'm afraid I care little either way.

The two men respond to the party one by one. Itachi: "And what of when the gods begin to fight? Who will begin to intervene then?" Demon Man: "Heh, so you knew I had a family? Then you should know everything I do is to protect them. I'm through with having shady characters hunting me and my family down to the ends of the earth for their vain reasoning." Itachi: "Hmpf, a noble reason indeed. And yet, you are still a beast, one who preys on lesser being to sustain themselves." Demon Man: "The hell do you know? Do you think you're better than me or something?" Itachi: "Morally, no." Demon Man: "And what's with this neutraliry bullshit? Who accepts a mission and decides they don't wanna get involved in the middle of it!?" Itachi: "Alas, these are no elite soldiers. They're simply pushovers with nothing better to do." Demon Man: "...Did you ever even intend to win this fight?" Itachi: "Make no mistake, i've calculated every possible outcome. The result of this battle will be to my satisfaction." Demon Man: "What a stupid band of propagandists you are. Lung killer over here really pisses me off the most, if i'm being honest." The demonic man points his thumb over his shoulder to Tenkai. Demon Man: "All this talk, and yet you still haven't given me a good reason why you're here. What makes you think you can trust this man to make good on his promises any more than you can trust me? If you truly claim neutrality, then walk out right now." The door leading outside is forcefully slammed open. Itachi: "Now, then, let us beat around the bush longer and begin this fight." Itachi forms a battle stance, pointing his lightsaber threateningly at the demonic man.
{As the two talk for a bit longer, the girl actually stands while dozing off, catching some quick z's for no reason. It seemed as if she was extremely bored despite the two taking this very seriously. Though at least she was listening, so she wakes up once she hears the word "fight".} "Huh, didn't know that trying to be lazy and staying neutral was considered a propaganda. Please, mister man, try and teach me some more ways about your conflicting views of life." {Valerie smiles yet another time at the demon man, not caring at all about the fact that he has a family to protect as her headphone jack lights up a lot brighter than it was before. As a result, her hands also start to glow and form some kinetic energy like they were charging some type of power.} "I don't like fighting. Too much work. But slaughtering can be easier if you decide to run anyway. Isn't that the best way to protect your family?" {She makes a swiping motion with her hand, a light pulse vibrating off their supposed enemy just so as to try and make them...afraid? What matters is that any type of projectile attack will bounce off and rebound directly towards him again as if it were hitting twice. However, it seems that Valerie herself isn't trying to capitalize off this yet, since everyone else is busy preparing or something. The little effect will last for longer anyway.}
Heh. I take no offence to that. In fact, I welcome the fact. If I am the greatest villain in your tale... *Tenkai slowly raises a hand.* Then that's just how the world should be. *Tenkai snaps his fingers. From one of the pools of smoke, a large Yokai with an even larger studded club that looks like it's made of molten rock appears.* I suppose I can let myself get a bit more serious. Oni-Kishi.
“Don’t be ridiculous.” Grimnir lets out a laugh as he closes his eyes, a confident grin across his face “Us gods are united by a love and respect for our leader the Allfather. Sure we might have some petty squabbles every now and then but as a whole we’re still way above you humans.” Grimnir opens his eyes again, taking a glance at the demon man “Demons have to be eradicated or else they’ll always cause chaos and trouble for themselves as well as others. Really it’s a mercy.” Finally, Grimnir spins around, taking his own light and airy battle stance as he points his lance at Itachi “But right now the one acting like a demon is you. Now then either explain your aggression towards this man or witness just how far above you humans I really am!”
Gael would still just stare on the scene and let off what could best be described as a grunt to what she heard but kept her dry demeanour in y’all. “I have my reasons and it certainly isn’t what ever spouts you keep tagging on me you I just don’t like beating the hell out of someone unless I get some value out of it, demon or god doesn’t all matter I guess.” She kept fiddling with her pocket and standing mostly still as a dark substance runs over from there forming a rocky formation over her attires and a small fog starts to form around her. She looks down in a bit of surprise but then to disappointment and just stays in a defensive stance. “Huh...but there is someone I guess who would care. Fair warning though he’s a bit senseless but would give you a better reason.”

The demon man would prepare to attack but relents upon seeing Grimnir's betrayal. Itachi merely smirks and stands still. Itachi: "How very... predictable. Well, I suppose i'll just let my canaries battle it out while I take care of this." Itachi Y-poses, power emanating from him which washes over the area, causing him and Grimnir to gradually disappear. [Main Party] The demonic man smirks, shrugging at the turn of events. "Heh, glad I could get at least two of them out of the way. It's really a shame you didn't heed my warning, though, because now you'll have to suffer the wrath of the divine spite, Entora!" The atmosphere of the room would suddenly radiate a malicious energy as the design would change to that of a demon's domain (SMT IV) which greatly enhances the enemy's capabilities. Entora puts his right forth, causing a massive spike of energy to protrude which manifests as a torrent of wildfires acting as an undeflectable environmental attack, which would keep on burning for a few seconds as well as persist on anyone who gets burned enough. This extends throughout most of the spacious area, with only the space right next to and behind Entora not being singed [Grimnir] You would find yourself standing on air in an empty space similar to The Final World from KH3, facing Itachi. The field radiates energy, allowing one to overclock their powers at the expense of draining their energy faster, weakening them in prolonged and/or extreme cases. He lets his arms down as he begins to float in the air, his soul emitting a powerful wind which would blow his coat. All at once, a white kabuki mask would form over his face as cybernetic wires and plates begin to cover his arms and legs, making him look more mechanical than human. "Well, then, why don't you take the first strike? See how futile your endeavor is!" Obligatory battle music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rf8Dj7PRAI
*While dragged into the new realm, Tenkai's Yokai clouds disipate as they are absorbed into the demon realm. However, despite this, Tenkai chuckles as he and Oni-Kishi begins to radiate the same sort of power as Entora* Fool. Could you not tell when you laid eyes on me? Dragging one with dominion over Yokai into the Yokai realm. You must be longing to die. *Oni-Kishi takes the brunt of the flames with his cracked red skin and remains unphased. His hand burns as he grips his large mace and leaps into the air, bringing the large club down on Entora's head. Meanwhile, a small spider appears on Tenkai's shoulder. Using it's power, Tenkai fires sticky webbing at Entora in an attempt to bind him.* Tenkai Special Ability: Yokai Blood (Enhances Skills in the Demon/Yokai Realm. Applies to all of Tenkai's summons as well.) Moves: Oni-Kishi: Raging Attack ( Heavy Physical Damage) Itokuri's Thread (Light physical Damage+Medium chance to cause PARALYSIS)

{The teenage girl’s eyes light up when the two go away, for some reason. Though most would find it awfully pointless for team members to be fighting, Valerie as not interested in trying to play kiss and make up or anything of the sort. She stretches a bit and states more disinterested remarks with a slightly sarcastic but still proper tone.} ”Wait, were we supposed to be turning against each other? I wasn’t paying attention, so I’m a bit confused...” {Valerie’s eyes are closed for her own tired little moment of silence before the previously dull grey color gets replaced with a bright blue. When met with the crackling of the flames, all the girl could really do is smile and snicker, as if she weren’t showing enough care for the situation they all brought themselves in. She waved her arms in an arc-like motion, summoning six yellow magic circles.} ”That being said, you’re really a bother...” {She dryly comments before disappearing in a flash, the magic circles she conjured up rotating in a counter-clockwise direction before letting loose six blasts of light that travel directly towards the demon man. Because of the pulse that she put on him earlier, all six magic bursts would act as projectiles that rebound straight back into him as if they attacked twice. Ability: Luminous Hearts - Acts as a pulse. Magic projectiles hit twice everytime. Lasts for 3 turns. Moves: Empathy Skip - Valerie moves at a fast pace, skipping around as a single light trail follows her swift movements. Stellar Notes - x6 Medium Light Damage (hits twice because of luminous hearts).
Gael watched any problems disappear into who knows where leaving her with just one target to take care off. "There gone, t was getting rather awkward with all the small talk. I did admit I didn't like to fight it out all that much but I guess this is just how business goes and the voice inside also wants his turn have at I suppose." Gael would advance on the line taking hits from the wildfire but is able to tank through showing no waver. The fog around her started to pick up and expand a bit more into a field that she can now nest and play defensively, from there she draws a nifty makeshift revolver and take unloading the entire round right into the demon and waited for the effect to start taking hold. Ability: Growing Nightmare - A field of fog and liquids is summoned into a pool and helps boost defence of the user and deemed allies who stand in that area. Has a slow build up period before becoming active to use. Move: Lure Shot - Special revolver shot that Fires x5 Light Damage (Chance to force target to attack Gael)
“Oh wow, you can feel the fighting that’s happened here!” Grimnir exclaims with almost childish glee. The man brushes his hair out of his face, letting out a sigh “Man, I’ll admit. I kinda thought you were the cowardly type. But since you did me the favor of getting the civilians out of the way. Grimnir points his lance at Itachi once more “It’s only fair that I take this seriously. So long as you fight honorably even death is nothing to fear!” With that, Grimnir becomes little more than a blur. In an instant the war god has crossed the distance between him and his foe, passing by in a single lungs aimed to scrape by Itachi’s side, testing the strength of his new armor compared to Grimnir’s mithril lance while moving a fair ways past his opponent to get more time to react

[Main Party] Entora would knock the club back by holding up his hand when it came close, his sheer might resisting the assault. As well, the web would be as silly string to him. Valerie's projectiles appear to strike true and injure Entora for a moment, but a spacial rift of pure darkness opens up behind him causing him to be unphased afterwards. However, the continuous fire of bullets would steal his attention. Entora would lunge at Gael, swiping his claws at him furiously with intense vigor and brute strength. Ability: Null State - A dark portal will open up each turn, empowering Entora. Move: Terror Claw - Medium physical damage and medium chance to inflict fear [Grimnir] Itachi, giving off no reaction to Grimnir's effort to make nary a scratch on the unbreakable metal, intensely smiled at his opponent. "Most interesting, I couldn't make this any more entertaining if I tried. Show me firsthand the true strength of your conviction!" Several wires would begin to materialize from the ground at once, lunging at Grimnir one after the other. Once they strike, they would begin to send an minor electric jolt throughout him which would permeate from the point of impact, spreading throughout his body before dissipating. While the jolt would eventually wear off, the wire would remain stagnant and produce an infinite amount of electricity as long as it retained contact. Ability: Overclock - All fighters have every parameter increased greatly Move: Short Circuit - x1-8 weak elec damage. Damage increases with each hit up to colossal damage. Decreases resistance to nuke and elec
{As she flashes and zips around, Valerie looks slightly surprised at the fact that her opponent didn’t immediately die from her light. Then again, she felt that she was only a tiny bit hesitant in trying to decide whether if she wants to go all-our over some generic or not. The only satisfying part about this passing turn was her not being targeted..} “Uhm, whoever this person is...keep doing that.” {She says out of spite, appearing for a quick second just to give gratitude before phasing back out, the single trail of light following her every move like it were a spring. Her figure zipped and zoomed around before deciding it was time for her to go up, in which she was waiting right above Entora with a ball of light.} “Yelling out the name of my attack takes too much time, so enjoy!” {Valerie, quite literally, dunks straight onto the demon man with the ball of light, letting it explode once it made contact with her enemy. The explosion, in turn, was strong enough to make his Luminous Heart beat faster, and also let it pass onto the dark portal behind him. As a result, the dark portal now flowed with a slight energy of light as if it had a heartbeat of his own.} Abilities: Luminous Heart: Magical projectiles hit enemy hit twice. Luminous Heart Mk. II: Magic projectiles now hit three times, but damage gets slightly reduced. Moves: Light-Space Jam - Heavy Bless Damage to Entora and Dark Portal.
Gael would stagger back from the strikes of Entora and any other friendly fire but still rise back up on to her feet and hold her ground. The effect of terror claw inflicts fear into her in the unusual way her body reacting abnormally as the dark tendrils wrap around and create rocky cast around her legs stoping her from moving, she clutches her faces as she seems a bit rattled but tries to calm and talk to only herself from anyones else point of view. "Maybe I miscalculated...just gotta hold out and keep its attention...." It made no difference she was still rather stuck to her place and her trembling probably meant taking a few more rounds wasn't gonna work out well so change of tactic. She snapped her finger and the field of fog finally settled down around her and a dark green pool of liquid starts forming, she could feel the core around her firmly settle in but it wasn't enough she put up her guard and decided to face another wave of brute force. "Well...you gonna keep going...keep that up and it'll turn right back at ya!" Ability: Growing Nightmare - A field of A field of fog and liquids is summoned into a pool and helps boost defence of the user and deemed allies who stand in that area. Now active. Moves: Guard to stack on the defence.
"Well I have been told I'm a natural showman." Grimnir takes a few quick steps away from the initial wires, before spinning around, his scarf flowing in the breeze. From a little wind whipped up by his motion comes a torrent. The war god turns even the slightest breeze into a twister of slashing air to rend the approaching wires to pieces. With the attack dealt with, Grimnir takes the chance to strike a pose, one hand high up on his spear's hilt and the other near the spearhead, pointing it downwards into the ground "You face the Mad Cyclone and Spear of the Heavens, GRIIIIMNIR! Were I to go all out from the start this would hardly be a fight. Still, let's see how you like this! Tempest of Judgement!" Grimnir takes a few dancing steps to the side, before executing another spin, weaving his spear through the air as he makes four swift slashes towards Itachi. From each slash comes a blade of air aiming to start chipping away at his opponent Passive: Wind Guard - weakens ranged attacks, deflecting most light attacks entirely. Deals light wind to those approaching Grimnir. Attack: Tempest of Judgement: 4 medium wind attacks to all opponents
*Tenkai would watch his opponent with focused eyes. He snaps his fingers. Now at close range, the Oni-Kishi roars, getting in close. The ground cracks and erupts into flames.* Are you such an uncivilised brute that all you can do is swing your arms around wildly? Such foolishness. *Tenkai pulls his pipe out once more and inhales the corrupted smoke. This time, however, he breathes it directly at Entora. If affected, Entora would feel it's body begin to grow hot as the strange poison begins affecting them.* Ability: Yokai Blood (Enhances all stats of Tenkai and his summons when in the Yokai or Demon realm) Moves: Oni-Kishi: Eruption (Heavy Fire Damage to all foes) Tenkai: Giant Toad's Pipe (High chance to Inflict Poison to all foes)

[Main Party] Entora would relent from the now passive Gael, instead being distracted by the ball of light heading in his direction. Valerie's arrogance proved to be her undoing, for the loud and ironic announcement alerted Entora and gave him the opportunity to quickly move out of the way, his vampiric speed surpassing that of Valerie and leaving her attack to merely strike the dark portal and snuff out it's emptiness, leaving neutral space behind. Immediately afterwards, another dark portal forms to Entora's side. They would then grit their teeth and shoot a look of hostility at Valerie, a cloud of darkness suddenly appearing behind her. Rather than simply being dim, the cloud embodied a feeling of unease and unknown. A giant, demonic, twisted eye would stare at Valerie from within the cloud. However, it would not be able to be seen, only felt as the cloud spread across Valerie's area and shrouded her vision entirely. Having been caught up with handling this, Entora was unaware of the incoming attack, just as well Oni-Kishi's skill would prove efficient in annihilating himself. The flames would not strike true to their intended target, instead diverting to their original caster with equal intensity. The poison, as well, would not affect Entora as a result of his endurance and fortitude. Entora would jump to the center of the room, knocking anyone nearby back with the intensity of his movement. He would swipe his hand across the air, four large black spheres with violet aura emanating from them would appear in the middle of the far end of each cardinal direction of the room. Ability: Null State - A dark portal will open up each turn, empowering Entora. Move: Death Stare - Medium curse damage and high chance to inflict blind. Move: Otherworldly Link - Create four dark energy masses. [Grimnir] The wind slashes would knock Itachi back slightly, but he would easily brush this off and rush towards Grimnir with his lightsaber. He strikes from Grimnir's left, hoping to have his attack blocked and using the force from the collision of weapons to quickly turn around, striking from the other side. As he does this, a stagnant energy trail would be left from the tip of his blade and conjoin back with the weapon as if dancing with an infinitely long ribbon. This would effectively increase the area of his blade. Ability: Overclock - All fighters have every parameter increased greatly at the cost of consuming energy faster Move: Infinite Slash - Takes the energy of both the target and user if parried. Otherwise, deal moderate phys damage.
{Valerie felt disappointed in herself for setting her light-space jam in a way that Entora would easily dodge it, but she would feel even more dissatisfied that he did not even like her attempts at humor. Sure, all of her teammates are probably taking this seriously, but the girl was still bored and wanted to have fun.} "Oh, booooo. That was a good movie." {As she feels a very "unsettling" feeling looming over her...moreso behind her, she merely looked behind her with an equally blank and hopeless gaze as if trying to mimick it's own stare and have a little staring contest with the eyeball. After some time passes though, she tries to move her legs, only to find that her eyes not being able to work almost makes her trip.} "Is this the part where we're supposed to feel...scared? What was the word...I forgot it...hmmm..." {Valerie, while blinded, is not binded. As such, she does not even bother put in effort in trying to get around being blind, nor suffering because of it. Instead, the girl raises her hand, humming a bit as she waited for something. Namely, the pillar of light acting as a thin dome that goes around her, engulfing her figure in a luminescient energy. Due to this pillar appearing, four singular trails of light similar to those that follow her around whenever she zips and zooms around appear from the sky, as if to decieve Entora into thinking she was moving somewhere.} Ability: Luminous Heart: Mk II - Only on Entora. Magic projectiles hit three times but damage is slightly reduced. Moves: Mis-star Sistar - Light pilar thing that only serves to get her senses right. Also spurs out 4 trails of light that she could try and enter at any moment.
“Damn he didn’t fall for it...actually kind of nice I didn’t have to deal with that.” Gael would take the quick moment to resettle herself. She reloaded her weapon and decided to quickly but steadily take aim at one of the new dark energy masses as best as her wobbling aim could manage for the moment. After unloading her round she would start to channel something deep within her planning out how to maybe take care of these far to many entities spawning. Ability: Growing Nightmare - A field of A field of fog and liquids is summoned into a pool and helps boost defence of the user and deemed allies who stand in that area. Now active. Move: Fire x5 gun medium gun damage at any one dark energy mass. Move: Tag In - Charge up for a turn to activate. Can only be used on counter attack to switch forms.
A natural fighter, Grimnir almost instinctively raises his spear to block the attack with its head, letting Itachi maneuver around him. Though Grimnir is swift enough to step away from the strike, it’s not enough to avoid it entirely, letting the blade’s trail slash through his arm and leave behind a burn “Not bad, you’re the first opponent to strike me in some time. I can honor that kinda skill.” Grimnir takes a few more swift, flying steps back before raising his spear “Now, May the heavens tremble and the earth be torn asunder as I release the true nature of the storm, the almighty spear of the wind, Grimnir!” Done wasting time, Grimnir gathers every breeze and flow left from the two fighters’ motions, and amplifies them, turning a gentle breeze into a howling whirlwind. In but an instant Grimnir thrusts his spear towards Itachi, sending a massive spiral of wind directly at his opponent, like a drill aiming to tear his opponent asunder. With this thrust Grimnir whips the once calm air into a frenzied storm, easily capable of tossing around and destroying any who weren’t prepared to resist. Holy Ray of Purification- Colossal Wind damage to one foe. Changes Grimnir’s ability Ability: Holy Ray of Purification - nullifies status changes for all fighters and automatically KOs anyone sufficiently weak

[Main Party] Entora would ignore any possible distraction. Gael’s bullets would serve to effectively seal the western gate, causing it to collapse in on itself and neutralize the air. Entora would take a step back upon the yokai's attempts to bludgeon him, carefully taunting it to stay as near as possible to himself as he backs up towards the east wall. The three remaining masses in the centers of the east, north and south walls react, purple lightning enveloping their surface. A trail of blinding darkness instantaneously forms in the paths between the masses, the same matter of darkness filling in the space enveloped by the trail. This would all happen at light speed, leaving no time for it to be dodged. Everyone in or touching the entire eastern side of the room would find themselves held down by the darkness, causing them to be unable to act. The dark would cause them to feel the essence of pure death, as if they were being suffocated, frozen, shot, guillotined, eaten alive, smashed or even evaporated. Entora would step out of the darkness and emerge on the western side of the room, unscathed. "And then there were two."

[Grimnir] "Urk-" Itachi is tossed back by the storm, only able to keep himself upright by having his wires pull as hard as they can on his legs. “It seems I underestimated you. So be it, I will see this through, for this is a divine battle unfathomable years in the making!” He then thrusts his hand forward, a severe lightning storm conducting through the wires in his body. This culminates in a sphere of cyan nuclear energy developing in the palm of Itachi’s hand, gradually growing in size. Itachi would then push the ball, causing it to projectile forth at Grimnir at rocket-like speeds. Once it gets within a short radius of the wind god, the sphere would then implode in on itself, causing a contained nuclear explosion to combust in the range of Grimnir. However, its effects would not soon wear off, the blast becoming stagnant in its peak and creating a deadly field which would react to whatever it touches as if it just blew up.

{Before Valerie even allows the void to do anything, she opens up her dome and shouts out to the other side instead of doing anything herself.} "Hey guys, I don't know your names, but remember to wake me up in like...45 minutes? My sister's going to be yelling at me from my phone!...Actually-" {Through the opening of her light dome, she threw her phone straight at Entora with a blistering speed before shrugging, doing nothing as she lets the darkness claim her. How scary it was...kind of. Even when faced with "death" the girl was not at all phased nor scared, nor serious.} "E." {E.} Moves: E - out of battle for now.

Grimnir grins, raising his left hand over his eye as he begins to monologue “You’re not so bad yourself, thousands of demons have fallen before the mere emergence of my divine presence, the howling winds of the wild storm known as Grimnir. Yet here you stand before me after...” He talks a bit too long, paying no attention to the attack Itachi threw his way. His armor shimmers as it tries to absorb the explosion, but Grimnir is still blown back. However, despite being clearly hurt Grimnir simply starts laughing “Man, human technology sure has come a long way from the spears and axes of my day. When I think of how much farther you might be able to go.” Grimnir takes his hand away from his face. Though he has some minor burns, far more noticeable is the absolute glee “You can feel the wind howling like mad can’t you? Then indulge me a little longer.” The wind picks up, matching its tempo to the beating of Grimnir’s very heart. As the tempest beats down on Itachi, Grimnir soon joins it it, adding the force of the air to his already great speed, Grimnir aims to dash through Itachi, spear first, once, twice, three times before he relents Ability: Holy Ray of Purification - automatically ko’s weaker foes, negates stat changes Attack- Tempest Spear - 3x heavy physical to Itachi

Entora dams - 4 heavy, 12 med, 11 light [Tenkai, Gael] The darkness would fade, leaving only Valerie's lifeless body to fall to the ground. Entora would easily dodge the phone but it would leave him distracted enough to get his shoulder bruised by the iron ball. The shots from Gael would draw his ire, but in an unexpected way. First, he would hold his hand forward, a distorted air washing over the entire party which weakens their entire being. Then, he would lay his arms down, a spiral of fire wrapping around him as his eyes begin to flash an opaque orange light. He then thrusts both hands forth, the spiral twisting and growing as it travels across the room, ramming into each party member. Ability: Null State - A dark portal will open up each turn, empowering Entora. Move: Debilitate Move: Maragidyne [Grimnir] "Heh, how exhilarating. I haven't felt like this in a millenium." Itachi allows the strikes to hit him, tearing through his chest and allowing sparks to fly out of the pierced wires, as if he was bleeding raw energy instead of blood. He would react by pointing his saber at Grimnir, an unstable energy flowing throughout Itachi's body and conducting into the blade, gathering at the tip and firing off as a single bolt launched at Grimnir which branches out rapidly and strikes with several high voltage strokes at once [spoiler]Ability: Overclock - All fighters have every parameter increased greatly at the cost of consuming energy faster Move: Thunder Reign - Severe elec damage [Valerie] Valerie would wake up on a plain in front of a gentle river, a pale man with white hair with strands waving stiffly to the left stood in front of her, his two attendants to the side. "Well, let's get this over with. The name's charon, ferryman of the underworld. The thing is, ordinarily I'd look the other way when it comes to dealing with the dead. But, as of now, i'm a bit overworked. So, just this once, i'm willing to take you back to the world of the living. With some limitations, of course. I won't be able to bring you back to the same location as where you died, and I'll only do it for a hefty bribe of, let's say, 100000 yen." Charon holds his right hand out
Hmmph. What worthless pawns. You're all dying far too quickly. Where's that power of yours, hmm? *As the spiral launches towards Tenkai, Onryoki steps in the way, guarding it's summoner but taking more damage to itself in the progress.* Then I suppose I'll simply have to step in and force you all to fight you're hardest, now won't I? Onryoki. Take him from the front. Lock him down. Open him up for assault. And you, what's your name. Stay mid range. You seem to be able to work well there. If you can deal with these silly little portals as well, I'd advise doing so. And I'll wake up that fool who got themselves killed. *Onryoki leaps forward at Entora, bring it's large hands around both sides, threatening to crush the demon with them. Tenkai pulls a small, rusted iron bell from his coat and rings it.* Janomecho. Grant us protection from death itself. *At the bells call, a moth like spirit appears behind Tenkai.

{The girl yawns and stretches as if it were any other day of waking up and getting out of bed. She was about to try and go ahead to leave to somewhere were it not for someone that she had to converse with. That being the man that stands before her. Valerie mentally gives him an eye roll as she starts to get her voice prepped up.} "Aw, that's so nice of you, mister! But, do I really have to? I feel as though my teammates have my back, you know." {As her eyes opened up, she looked at him with a bright stare like a moth trying to see a flame.} "Maybe if I die again you'll be back here?"

Things were working out just about right for Gael as another wave of flames strikes her but she stands in that spot no longer. Instead a large hulking freak made up of stone and slime stands as the new form in place. “You just sparked the flame of war, the king of the freak show is here to play!

[Valerie] Charon stares blankly as Valerie's present form fades away. "Bitch prolly broke anyway." [Main Party] Valerie suddenly regains consciousness, the jaws of death wearing on her body and sapping her strength. Entora would push back against the yokai's grip, being knocked in the air by the barrel but avoiding the effect of the poison due to his endurance and fortitude. Before hitting the ground, however, he changes into a form of black intangible mist which quickly charges through the air straight towards Tenkai. He reforms right in front of the summoner, a black solid barrier encasing both of them. "Dependent weaklings like yourself deserve to be crushed."

"I'm sorry, do you think you could repeat that?" Grimnir attempts to shout over the storm that only ever increases in intensity "I'm getting pretty excited so its really hard to hear things over this wind." Grimnir leans in a little, to no avail, before he notices the incoming attack. The War god takes a few spinning steps back in an attempt to avoid the tendrils, however its not nearly enough to evade all the electricity. Although the War God might seem incompetent at times, when it comes to a fight nothing is wasted. While his maneuver may not have been useful for evading, it does kick up a breeze in his wake, a disturbance in the air flow that Grimnir sharpens into spears. "You've fought well for a heretic, but its time to erase you from this world. Voidlight Erasure!" At his command and with one last thrust of his lance, Grimnir forms seven spears from the wind and sends them flying at Itachi. Ability - Holy Ray of Purification, KOs greatly weakened foes, negates status changes Voidlight Erasure - 7x medium wind to random targets. (so Itachi, since there's only one)
So, you've finally decided to do something tactical for a change. I see. *With a smile, Tenkai closes his eyes and holds his staff up, blocking the blow, though Tenkai seems to be struggling a bit to do so with one hand.* But you'll have to try harder than that. Onryoki, if you could. *Onryoki growls an acknowledgement and leaps at the newest open portal in an attempt to disrupt it.* And while he's doing that, why don't weplay, hmm? You seem to enjoy fire. Guess what? * With his other hand, Tenkai raises a large clay orb with a fuse attached to it. A fuse that is already lit.* So do I * With a wicked grin, he lightly tosses it in the air, causing it to fall down just behind Entora before exploding. If Tenkai's plan works, Entora's body would shield the Yokai summoner from the blast while Entora takes the full force. If not? Well, he's survived worse explosions.* Ability: Yokai Blood (Enhances all stats of Tenkai and his summons when in the Yokai or Demon realm) Moves: Onryoki: Leaping Smash (Heavy Physical Damage.

[Grimnir] Itachi yells through the storm at Grimnir "I said, I haven't felt like this in a long time!" He lets his coat fly in the wind, smirking menacingly as his chest is gashed several times causing sparks of electricity to fly out of him. "A god you might be, but a naive one! For you see, as there will always be good and evil; light and darkness; joy and suffering; so, too, will I always persist in this world! For all that is and all that will come to be make up my very being! Witness the true extent of my existence!" Suddenly, Itachi would hold his right hand to the air as sparks jet out all over his wounds, the arena changing to outer space right in front of a giant red star which was so unfathomably large that no matter how far Grimnir looked in any direction he would not see any end of it. "Behold the power of cosmic energy, gated for eons by my hand, set free at last!" A solar prominence of hot gas would come rushing forth at Grimnir, several others adjacent to the first would then well up and blast of the vicinity of the original firey beam's area of effect, greatly expanding the coverage of the attack. Itachi now couldn't breathe as easily, the usage of power beginning to have faint effects on him.

Time to get back on my grind." {She says, her white hair glowing light blue as energy shines in her palms once more. Now, the pulse has been reactivated, and the only things that were targeted were the barrier and the dark portal.} "Sure wish he wasn't such a party pooper and came out of his little igloo there." {Valerie darts towards the middle, still trying to keep a safe distance towards any fellow fighters in the case that she needs a free meatshield. As she does, she fires off four small bursts of light towards the barrier, and then two more at the portal. Since the four that hit the barrier bounce off it, they reflect back towards the portal, letting all six blasts hit the portal with only two rebounding back towards it for extra damage.} Action: Empathy Skip - m o b i l i t y.

“Well you two giants give quiet the clashing display it’s like watch a show!” Torrick would take the moment to to create a soda barrel that he would drink to his content and relax as Tenkai and Entora played about in his head. The barrel’s content was chugged you rather quick and the size of Torrick would increase by a bit. “Alright that’s enough fun I need to dispose of the left overs. Somewhere but where....aha! Torrick would take his great soda barrel and charge towards the sake portal forming in the centre of the room.

[Main Party] The four projectiles would not be enough to destroy the barrier but the barrage of attacks beside would be able to easily overwhelm the dark energy present in the portal, temporarily putting it out of commission. Meanwhile, by sheer fortitude, Entora would be completely unaffected by the blast as well as cause Tenkai to be hit with it full force. However, he would not continue the assault, instead bending forward and clenching his stomach Valerie Status: Weakness - 25% reduction for strength and intelligence No moves
Torrick rubbed his hands as if he actually did any work aside from throwing his barrels about. But with that he turned his attention to the big show that entertained him so. “Right the prep is done the stage is beckoning let’s make a show out of this sad display!” Torrick would charte into a leap and move towards the barrier standing before him, he slammed down right near it cause a shockwave to rupture right near it and felt prompted to wind up and release a few punches seeing if he can shatter it right there and then from brute force. Move: Topshow - Leaps forward, deals medium damage and knock back on impact. Move: 3 Medium Damage strikes.

[Main Party] Entora would grit his teeth, the sparks lashing at his skin like whips. He would fall to one knee while he catches his breath, dispelling the damaged barrier. Fading into a mere silhouette of dark matter before the eyes of everyone present, the man would appear immediately south of his portal with a black murky trail left behind before quickly dissolving. He would then put one hand forth which would send a shockwave all across the arena which did nothing but disorient everyone. He would then solemnly tilt his head back. “Perhaps my attempts at direct confrontation were misguided. You’ve survived this long, so i’ll at least hear you out. Tell me, what reason do you have to still carry out this course of action?” >State a selfish reason >State a selfless reason >Say you have no choice Valerie Status: Weakness - 25% reduction for strength and intelligence Ability: Null State - A dark portal will open up each turn, empowering Entora Move: Down Wave - Inflicts Down on all foes
I don't there's any reason to tell you is there? Perhaps if you'd asked to have a lesiurely conversation over a cup of tea, then I would have explained myself. However, you chose to assault us. *Tenkai shakes his head judgmentally.* In that regard, perhaps the word your looking for is Self-Defence. You assaulted us simply because we were with that man who quickly ditched the fight (Damn Coward). As the law goes, if you are trying to kill us then we are in our rights to try and kill you right back. Of course, if you stood down I would be happy to talk this over with you. I am quite the master of the tea ceremony, after all. Ability: Yokai Blood (Enhances all stats of Tenkai and his summons when in the Yokai or Demon realm) Tenkai: Blames Entora
{Valerie's eyes dim down as the shockwave goes by, the only sign showing she's present is a distasteful glare towards Entora. Once Tenkai finishes up his little deduction, she covers her mouth as she coughs to intentionally make the atmosphere more awkward.} "While I would usually be mad that someone like you, ahem, "killed me", I'm actually more intrigued now that I took some time to do some self-reflection, you know." {The girl snarks nonchalantly, using her fingers to put air quotation-marks around "killed me" to show how unserious she is about this interaction. Afterwards, she smiled brightly, one that can be quickly made out to be a fake one.} "It honestly makes me not want to kill you in return, tee-hee! Not that I'd want to, it always takes a lot of work...nevertheless, I did it because I felt like it, simple as that." Ultimate Technique - "Because I was bored".
Torrick would be knocked about after the shockwave and start to just lounge about on floor pretending nothing of concern was happening and let the other talk about before barging in with his voice. “In my defence I was just throw into this and I like to fight can you blame me? Well actually don’t even care what the response is but if we arn’t doing that this got much more drab.” He didn’t feel like being direct at all with why he was even along for this and instead continued his sudden mood shift to loafing around as he conjured up another barrel of soda and started to chug the contents up causing his size to increase again. Moves: Soda Chug - Drink a barrel of special soda and increase size and slightly defence.

Entora dams - Near defeat [Main Party] "I see, so that's how it is." Tenkai's response would remove all debuffs from him, as well as reduce his chance to be targeted as Entora's enmity towards him passively subsided. Torrick's nervous system would not respond (as he was down), making him unable to drink the soda this time. Valerie and Torrick would only invoke greater anger from Entora, causing their defenses to decrease greatly from the sheer intensity of his presence as well as the demon's own attack raising. "You really are stubborn little monsters, aren't you? Maybe you would understand if you knew what it was like to care for something other than yourselves. I suppose it can't be helped now, though. Best to eliminate threats rather than leave to hunt another day, after all." Entora's face would gradually become more emaciated and his form more distorted, as his long claws stretch down into dark tendrils piercing the ground, giving him an eerie mostly erect quadrupedal humanoid form with black gooey veins covering his flesh which takes on a dusty look. As well, 8 dark tentacles form from both sides of his back, culminating in sort of mangled winglike appendages. The creature would put their hand forth, a surge of volcanic energy blasting through the air in a spire aiming to pierce Torrick with a fatal amount of force. The dark mass that formed the beings portals would breeze through the party like wind, gathering to the center and chilling the air as the creature smiles unnervingly.

*Tenkai closes his eyes and sighs, shaking his head.* This is getting ridiculous now. *He mutters. Onryoki fades into mist and is replaced by something else entirely. A shadow appears across the battlefield yet no demon appears to cast it.* I tried to be nice, but some people never learn to behave. In the end, I suppose there is nothing else that can be done. *The ground ruptures beneath Entora as shadowy spikes emerge from the ground to impale him.

“How fun. I’m not that selfish you know. I just want some good old fun.” {She says, faking more enthusiasm towards their supposed threat. With a blank gaze set back on her face, Valerie simply counts the tentacles not feeling at all impressed with Entora’s new transformation. After studying their current playing field a bit more, mainly blowing a raspberry at the dark sky, her hands lit up with even more energy.} “Truth is, all of us are liabilities. It would be sooooo pointless just to think that you’re doing anything right, you’re still bottom of the barrel.” {The girl sends out a pulse once more, the pulse now going onto both Entora and his eight “creepy” tentacles. A ring of light emanates from them every sixty seconds as if they were mimicking a heartbeat. Afterwards, Valerie lets out 2 forms of energy that stops midair in an arc, creating a curved X shape. “You’re still dying either way.” {The X soon disembodies itself to turn into 16 separate blasts of light, all of them hitting in different directions, but still hitting the target repeatedly, rebounding to a point where it seemed it would last forever. Valerie herself lets loose the energy that she stored in her hands by letting out two balls of light that follow each other, rotating in a spiral. Unlike the blasts of light, this blast wouldn’t reflect anywhere.} Moves: Luminous Hearts Mk I - On Entora and his eight tentacles. Makes magic projectiles hit twice. Actions: Stellar Notes - x 32 minuscule bless damage due to Weakness. Enter Sars - Medium Bless damage due to Weakness.
The sheer force of the barrage whisk Torrick away into the wall in a crash, if not for the Evil Smile he would try and push himself out of the rubble but sensing the feeling...no the taste of fear kept him immobilized but also riled him up and his exaggerating his speech. "Oh the disgrace! Can't a demon get his fists and drinks in once and a while, must you demand such serious answers only? Why if I wasn't shackled in the chains of fear itself I'd return the favour back just you wait I got the act all planned out..." It felt mostly like all talk and no bite from Torricks end as he would continue to just let himself sit stuck to the wall trying to maybe see daunting even in a poor position. To his benefit thought the pool of fog and liquid seems to have rematerialized around his position taking its time to activate again. Ability: Growing Nightmare - A field of fog and liquids is summoned into a pool and helps boost defence of the user and deemed allies who stand in that area. Has a slow build up period before becoming active to use.

[Main Party] The barrage of attacks would slightly damage Entora, but altogether unphase him. He would glare at Torrick, raising his voice so as to address everyone in the room. "Hmpf, I expected much more of a resistance. You really aren't the professionals I took you for? Very well, then, I'll let you off this time with a warning. I will ensure that the one who tipped me off about 'an army of elite soldiers heading my way' is punished severely, though." Entora would stand up, pointing at Valerie as the tendrils shot forth off his hand and firing towards the enemy as if sharp spears were being flung at her. He would then turn his back on his enemies, scoffing as a distorted air washed over the party, lowering their parameters. As well, the dark energy from the atmosphere would begin drawing towards Entora, gathering at his wings and flowing through his vains. Ability: Sweltering Darkness - The accumulated darkness can potentially overwhelm the party. Increased chance for Entora to inflict fear Move: Terror Claw - Deals Medium Physical Damage to Valerie Move: Debilitate - Decrease the stats of all foes
"Wait, somebody told you that elite soldiers were coming towards you? How unfortunate for you, your life must be so hard, being lied to for the 45th time in a row." {The girl snarks, not really minding as she takes a minor step forward, increasing the pulse of the enemy's luminous hearts by one mark, while also targeting his wings this time since she somehow didn't notice them before. Afterwards, she only rotates her body towards a right angle while still grounded, not avoiding the tendrils completely, or rather, much at all when they come towards her.} "Maybe it'd be best if you, I dunno, tried and think whether it's good for you to waste all your time like this. Don't you have anything more useful to do?" {After getting hit by the tendril, Valerie spins around, firing three blasts of light energy towards Entora, then zipping towards the sky, shooting a small blast at him everytime she reappears. She stops in her tracks in the air, this time sending forward a slightly bigger blast of light energy, that exploded right near Entora, in an attempt to be annoyingly radiant for no reason. As it exploded, some white feathers burst out as part of the impact.} Abilities: Luminous Heart Mk II - On Entora and his tendrils. Luminous Heart Mk I - On Entora's wings. Moves: Empathy Skip - gottaadvancerapidly Stellar Notes - x10 Small Bless Damage Sera Graphic - Medium Bless Damage
“Ah thank you so much my good friend it’s always nice to see some mutual respect between demons you really do get it you do! You should have that tipper be off with his head now trying to scam you out. When I’m around professionalism is no more there will only be great acts and displays about!” He’d keep going on becoming more of a nuisance but not moving still just bind up in the wall but talking nonsense right back in exchange without a care in the world and knowing nothing to lose and all to piss off with his string of words. “Though if they did say an elite army was coming maybe there just marching on there way? Ohh better get this place fortified think about how many guest we’ll be having over to watch us fight! They’ll tell this tale of fighting in the fashion of an epic retooled from now as ancient history it will be gold.” Ability: Growing Nightmare - A field of fog and liquids is summoned into a pool and helps boost defence of the user and Allies in the field of it. Now Active.
*Tenkai watches Entora with a cold, analytical gaze. Entora would feel himself growing weaker. Meanwhile, the shadows beneath Entora rises out, forming shadowy hands before slamming together around Entora.* Ability: Yokai Blood (Enhances all stats of Tenkai and his summons when in the Yokai or Demon realm) Moves: Tenkai: Gaze of Yomi (Lowers Attack and Defence to one foe) Kage-Onna: Shadow Crusher (X2 Heavy Physical Damage to one foe)

As the shadowy hands slam down on Entora, his form is crushed, causing reality to trail off in a blur as if it was running on Windows 98. The party felt stronger for their victory, precisely one level stronger. Of course, since stats aren't being precisely calculated this boost would have to merely be approximated. The party would boot up in their positions prior to the fight in the ordinary mansion, feeling disorientated from the phenomenon. Entora gazes at Torrick conflicted, tilting his head in worry "Forget this! Ugh, just consider yourselves guests, I have things to attend to…" The aura of darkness would retract into the atmosphere, leaving behind a chilling air. Entora's form would revert to a mundane human guise as he nonchalantly heads up the stairs in a hurry, going further inside the mansion. Just as nonchalant would be Itachi, leaning back against the wall west of the entrance. "Well, now that that's settled, i'm gonna grab something to eat." The scientist would casually walk across the room past the party, heading through a door on the left, turning right into the long hallway out of the sight of the party.
“Nice of your to take upon my advice I do take good care to tend to others fears even if it’s but a retire business practice now.” Torrick would devolve to a cackle as things settled down just proud of his own self for causing a good meddling act as much as a good fight in this. Seeing as it was done though his mind had to wonder onto other matters that would keep this fun going while he’s still out to play. He looked toward both Valerie and Matsunaga with intrigue wondering if he could...persuade them as well to something just of that nature. “It seems we come out in a much better spot then expect. Guests of this fine estate is a win if you ask me so I say we make use of our time and privilege here maybe explore around or get something to quell yourself after that rough battle watcha say a little more fun huh?”
“I just want to listen to Disney songs now. Is it eligible enough if I just go home or do we really have to be guests?“ {Her eyes were holding a considerably colder glare as it testified to how much her patience was tested, but it only took a few seconds for the girl to turn herself around and clear her throat before looking at everyone in sight with an extremely fake but convincing happy look.} “I’m all for pretending to like people, but I thought there was supposed to be a reward by now.”
*The shadowy creature fades away, shrinking into Tenkai's own shadow as he heads inside. He chuckles.* Well then. Shall we go have some tea?

Valerie and Torrick would find they were the only ones in their room, leaving them to fend for themselves. Itachi, meanwhile, would smile and wave at Tenkai as he approaches. "Ah, so you'll be joining me. In that case, I'll show you the way to the kitchen. I had some time to explore the place after my battle with the wind god concluded. Of course, we do have some matters to discuss as well. On that note," Itachi peeks out of the door to the previous room, lifting his chin and raising his voice to the two idly standing-by. "Hey, why don't you two join us? It would make things easier if I could pay you all at once." Not waiting for a response, he walks further down the hall and midway through opens a door on the left, leading into a modern western kitchen with few Japanese modifications such as a floor table.
I just figured you might want company. After all, I see that loud idiot didn't return with you. *Tenkai looks over at Itachi.* Thanks for ditching us, by the way. We cleaned up your mess for you. That'll cost you extra, by the way.
(edited by Matsunaga_Tenkai)
Torrick would quite literally have his entire body twist around and smile as he marched with overconfidence in the direction of Itachi and Tenkai down the hall gesture Valerie to follow along. "Why there would be no other place I would be right now. Lets not waste any time I can smell the spoils of fizz drinks so close...and some debts to pay off but that can wait to the dining hall now! Follow along depresso we leave no one out in a moment to cheers and savour lets get moving!"
[Valerie adjusts her headphones and hears the moment Itachi makes a peep out of his mouth, interrupting what he was saying in a way that he wouldn’t know. Which was quietly blasting music in hopes it will drown out his words. When Valerie gets gestured, she giggles like a classic schoolgirl before looking at Torrick with a slight eye roll, a seemingly perpetual smile still on her face,} “COMING!~ I barely know you, don’t try and make an excuse for yourself.” {The girl blurts out, only to immediately go ahead and reprimand her fellow coworker for existing. After Entora, she decided to blow off a bit of steam before returning right back to her high pitched and fake peppy attitude, heading straight towards Tenkai and Itachi. Valerie opens the door like she were slamming them from the outside to make her presence known.} “I’m back, hi! How was your little excursion? I ask because only because that bozo hasn’t returned.”

Itachi chuckles. "I don't mind paying whatever you wish. All that matters is that I accomplished what I set out to do here. As for Grimnir, he fled, meaning he is no longer of interest to me. Now, I presume you want to be paid in American Dollars?" Itachi walks over to the fridge, opening the right door slowly. He would shuffle through the pockets on the inside of his coat while simultaneously glancing over the assortment in the fridge. Inside the fridge were a variety of American and Japanese foods and other such stuff, with a noticable lack of drinks and beverages, including soda. "Uh, let's see, your work included some minor (lousy) detective work and a brief skirmish. That should come to around... $50,000 each? Would that suffice?"
*Tenkai folded his arms.* $55,000. I told you that you would be paying extra for forcing me to clean up your mess. It seems your dealing with the imbecile went quickly. You could have stepped after the fact, yes?
“Old man here seems rather demanding of the extra bonus. I’d let it slid for him and I’ll just take the original offer as you say. Though do keep it bundle and cased up she likes it al protected and I can’t bother to complain. As for me I’ll take an open connection or favour and a soda bottle as my bonus and call that my worthwhile payment. Torrick would squint at the fringe with disappointment after that comment and just tap his foot impatiently as he wished to just get right past the detail and find if there was anywhere to start downing in some good fizzy soda.
"While I've seen better, it's not like it's the worst thing in the world. You could probably buy a house and ransack it later. Pretty cool." {Valerie looks in the fridge and finds nothing of interest, save a couple of foods that probably look like they were made in an economically depressed Sam's Club. She only settles for her music to heep her entertained, simply staring past people and looking at walls to pass the time.}

"Ah, yes, of course." First, Itachi would open the left side of the fridge, revealing an assortment of beverages. He would pick up an Orange Vanilla Coke can and toss it to Torrick. "It's quite the coincidence that you're looking for connections, considering that was the entire purpose of this experiment. You're certainly more than qualified to take on the less elaborate jobs," Itachi, through some unseen method, manages to pull a large briefcase out of his coat pockets. He sets it down on the counter nearby him and opens it up, revealing three large stacks of dollar bills with one slightly larger than the other, each tied together with a rubber band. He would pick the larger stack up with one hand and the other two with his other hand, holding his hand out and gripping half of both stacks, handing the larger stack directly towards Tenkai while smirking and waving the other two stacks in the general direction of the other characters present. "Ordinarily, i'd take my potential employees out to one of my coffee shops afterwards. As this was an excursion, however, we are quite far from any of the locations in my network. I can send the coordinates of any of the locations I operate at to any technological device you may own, if you so wish." Itachi would chuckle after saying this.
Torrick would catch the soda bottle and grin infectiously. “Now we’re talking my good sir! As for the money you can direct that right to-“ He cut himself short as the murky body of his melted down and disappear like magic leaving Gael back in his place, who was out of the whole event since letting Torrick take control. She scratched her her head and let out a deep breath before picking up where he left off. “Sorry about him he is very enthusiastic...or he’s just trying to get soda off you it’s not always easy to tell. Anyway I’ll just take the payment and can write down the coordinates if you will, didn’t really bother to pack on any technology so all I got is a flimsy notepad. Yeah I know it’s old fashion shouldn’t be a problem right?” She walked over to accept her payment and just maintained an hit of a tired stare at Itachi though tried to be as respectful otherwise.
"You know, I hate work, but free money is free money. I might come back if I really feel like it. It was kind of fun and all but I'm feeling a bit bummed out." {Valerie yawned not at all caring for her manners when her reward is looking at her in the face. She walked over, almost skipping, and accepted it, bowing at Itachi just to show some fake gratitude. Even when she arguably helped the least, Valerie felt obligated to be acting like she was happy and everything was fine.}

"Right, then. When you ask for work, do not ask to see me. The last thing I want is to deal with this dumbass grade-schooler. But alas, cheap labour is cheap." As he says this, Itachi pulls a pen out of one of his coat pockets and makes his way over to the paper towels. He rips off a sheet and places it down on the counter, beginning to write down several sets of precise coordinates in unnaturally clear hand-writing perfectly matching up with an 11.5pt aerial font. The nearest of the coordinates being in Alberquerque, New Mexico. He would then walk over to the fridge and sift through until he found a cup of yogurt, immediately tearing the cover off and drinking out of it before devolving into an abstract mess of binary digits which slowly fade away.
