Selfish, aren't we?
Axos hates having physical reactions to the goddess being irritating, but he can't help it. She always had something to say, whether it was nice or not was always subjective. She never truly helped Axos (except, of course, in battles, where she seems to shut up and just let the magic flow through Axos). This mission was a bit more battle-like. The last mission he went on was purely investigation (and of course, getting swarmed so hardcore like they did). This time, though, they added another member to their 2 man team, he and Ana. This man was Dante, someone who also joined around the same time.
Axos once again was very far ahead. The body of his granted him extra speed and strength, as well as a lot of durability. He was always just so much faster then everyone else, even if he isn't meaning so. It doesn't help he had longer legs.
Axos was ready, though. This mission would provide a bit more fun. Axos looked behind him, hoping the other 2 were almost here.
