The fangs followed the serious girl without question, due to the fact the girl had helped in attacking the scorpion tail in the village and her very serious, if not emotionless demeanor. Most of the fangs went into the border of the forest around the blimp, ready to catch any of the scorpion tail mages that may try to make a break for it. A smaller group of them would have ran up the stairs into the blimp, ready to attack whatever was inside...The brash warriors though were met with a strong gust of sand and wind, launching the warriors that charged up the stairs into the air before they would start to fall back to the ground. In the jungle, cries of alarm came from the fangs in there as beasts enthralled by the jungle book had ambushed the warriors, leaving them to again contend with the jungle, but in much worse odds. Worse odds was due to the last of the scorpion mages, sure they were rookies but with the already swarming beasts they were considered deadly. They were actually in the top of the trees and worked on blinding or stunning the fangs from up high with either flashy light or minor bolts of electricity. This made the fangs vulnerable, and the cries of pain and battle filled the air. A black panther, its size enlarged by the magic of the book would had tried to ambush sorano, while a scorpion mage up in a tree near her was trying to blind her by sending magnified light rays at her face. During this start of chaos, the one holding the book, hamon, merely walked down the stairs with book in hand. Though he seemed content supervising the destruction, he was still alert of any fangs that may try to attack him and of a young girl or a dark clothed man that he had heard of being troublesome mages.Meanwhile
Zecarayus had followed the injured fang to the spot of their clash with hoshi following them. He kept in mind not to try anything to scare her, heeding sorano's words. The fang eventually led them to the scene of the battle, which it was as much as could be expected. Corpses of animals lay around, the mortal wounds result of the battle, but zecarayus could sense something else hidden under the corpses. "Hey you should get back to the village man, me and sorana can handle it from here."
he said, referring to sorana who had went with the rest of the fangs to assault the airship. The wounded fang agreed and retreated back to the ruined village. Zecarayus watched him leave, then walked over to overturn a animal corpse. He grimanced at what he saw, a dead fang. He realized there was a good chance that he wasn't the only one...no he wasn't. "Ok..."
he said to himself as he looked around at the dead, as he was thinking of how he could use this to their advantage. He realized then that he knew how, but it would take some work. He went over to a low hanging branch, and tried to break it off the tree and eventually did with a lot of effort. With the broken branch, as it was about four foot, he wandered among the corpses until he found a suitable one, however he remembered hoshi. "Hey hoshi, don't look over here for a little ok?"
he asked her, if the exceed was easily scared then this next part would not have been good for her to watch. Zecarayus then put his hand on the head of a dead...it appeared to be some sort of canine. Using the negative energy of death, he flooded the dead head it with it, causing the flesh and the skin to decay at a rapid pace til only the skull remained. He then went over to the corpse of the fang and undid the belt around his waist, using it to tie the skull to the large stick. What zecarayus had done was made a staff, and if it worked, it should help him and sorano against the enemy mages...hopefully.
He then heard something, what appeared to be loud cries. Zecarayus realized they had wasted too much time, and needed to be at the blimp. Zecarayus then focused his magic into the staff, soaking the skull and wood in spiritual energy. The concentration of supernatural energy grew within the head of it before releasing in a ominous blast of wind carrying supernatural energy. For a moment, everything was still and zecarayus feared he had messed up something. But then an unnatural light kindled in one of the animal corpses, and it was joined with other lights as the animal corpses rose back to there feet...those who could have anyways. Zecarayus smiled at this, but looked toward the direction of the shouts, they had to get over there. "Come everyone!"
he said with a demanding voice, but it was mixed with some trembling as the power he felt now was new to him. Yes he knew he was capable of this, but was unsure of how long it would last as this was his first time doing this. He then noticed the fang corpses laying still, it was understandable the staff's influence did not reach them, so zecarayus instead used his own magic to reanimate the two fallen warriors. They rose with glazed eyes and slacked jaws, zecarayus did his best to avoid looking at the undead fleshy group around him as he moved with them toward the battle that was going on farther away. All though at the rate he and his group of undead were moving at, it would take some time before they reached the blimp on foot. During this he had also forgotten about hoshi's presence there among so many dead, but by then it was already clear that they were needed at the blimp.
