Roy saw the beast go down, his eyes trailing it as it fell. Without flinching he took his pipe out of his pocket and it having already been packed, he lit it and began to smoke from it. "Not bad Zar, not bad."
Roy cast his eyes around the room wondering if anymore of these things would show up. For the moment it seemed that there weren't any near them. Roy got up with a grunt and went over to inspect the beast that they had just killed. He looked at from head to toe, and even inspected it's weapon. He puffed on his pipe a few more times and closed his eyes trying to remember where he had heard of something like this before. Roy thought back to his lessons with Balder, and what he had read in his books. All of the sudden he opened his eyes and grimaced angrily. These were demons...
Roy stood up and smoke collected around his clenched fist slowly drifting upwards towards the air. He felt fury building up in his stomach leaving a hollow burning sensation coursing throughout his body. These creatures were demons, foul demons from hell. Roy slowly held out his hand and the smoke that had been building up around him suddenly took form, and became a clone of Roy. He summoned a smoke chain in his hand as well and slowly advanced further down the cavern. He turned back to Zar with a dark look in his eyes as he spoke to him. "I can't ask you to follow me Zar. I've just discovered that these things are demons. And as such, I can't possibly leave this place until I've killed them all, or until they've killed me. I'm going to draw out as many of them as I can, I know that's not wise but at the moment it doesn't matter."
Roy walked forward with his double again, far enough to hopefully attract a few of the demons. He started shouting loudly into the cavern. "Listen up you unholy scum, my name is Roy and I've slain countless of your kind in the past. To me you are nothing more than insects, an infestation, and annoyance. if you think I'm wrong than I dare you, come at me! Come taste my blood and flesh if you think your able!"
Roy smiled as he saw two hulking forms, much like the ones they had already killed approach him from further in the cave. They lifted their swords upon seeing him, and licked their lips. Perhaps thinking that he would go down easily. Roy wasted no time as he cast his smoke screen spell, filling the air with smoke, his haze illusion still in effect both him and his clone disappeared almost entirely into the smoke now filling up the cavern.
The two demonic beasts began to thrash about wildly with their swords, taking off large chunks of stone from the walls and scattering debris everywhere. Roy used his naturally enhanced reflexes and speed to get behind them with his clone, while he sat on his cloud near the ceiling, out of reach of their madness. He and his clone summoned a swarm of ten smoke hands each, all of them blending in perfectly with the smoke landscape before them. Then he summoned his smoke coffin spell, the one of the left taking the full force of the blow and becoming prone for a while. While the one demons was prone Roy sent all twenty hands after the maddened monster. Pummeling him nearly in to the dirt. Had this been a fair fight he was almost certain that his spells wouldn't have nearly the same effect on these beasts. But Roy never fought fairly, not unless he had too.
Roy's smoke hands would make fast work of the demon beneath his trap spell, but the one that wasn't released a powerful explosion of dark energy in the middle of his smoke hand barrage, destroying four of his clone's arms, but also hitting his friend, and damaging him as well. There was very little that the first demon could do at this point, suffering so much damage it finally died. Roy directed his chain at the next demon wrapping it up and tossing it against the wall until it fell against the body of it's fallen "comrade". Roy scoffed thinking about just how disgusting these abominations were, striking his own fallen comrade and putting an end to his life, just to deal a small blow against his opponent. He supposed it didn't surprise him, considering that he was dealing with demons.
As the demon was cast into the wall, Roy's smoking hands waited ready to demolish it as soon as it was within range, shooting upwards and spinning him in the air as they sailed into it and when the beast finally hit the floor and tried to move, it found itself unable to do so struggling against the chains unsuccessfully. His eyes widening in temporary fear as the hands all crashed down against it again. The demonic brute met it's ending there, and Roy smirked, the battle having gone much easier then he thought it would. Though this smirked turned into a very surprised expression indeed as a huge brutal hand gripped him from behind and threw him into the ground. Roy had had the air knocked clean out of his body as this happened and his pipe fell to the floor with a clink spilling a few ashes on to the cavern floor. He wasn't sure how the demon had seen him but perhaps...perhaps it had smelled his smoke. Damnit, Roy thought. He didn't think he would be able to miss any demons from that vantage point but it seemed like one had followed him. As Roy lay on the ground prone a 15 ft hulking beast landed before him, blasting him with another bolt of dark energy and sending him deeper in to the cave outside of his smoke screen. Roy's body hit the ground and he rolled several times before coming to a full stop.
It seemed the demon was smart enough to shoot this blast where he had thrown Roy, knowing that he would be far to prone to move. It was actually pretty clever, fighting an opponent as hard to see as Roy it made sense to utilize ones other senses, and make accurate assumptions as to where Roy would be. The thing was so fast that as soon as Roy stood up it launched itself at him with blade in hand, and ready to skewer Roy. Roy looked up with hardly any ability to move, expecting to be run through any second now he prepared another spell, perhaps this would be where he died, but this thing was coming with him!
Just then the beast's sword impaled Roy's body, running him through with a well placed stab to the chest, as it raised it's gruesome blade with Roy's limp body attached to it, it smiled evilly and opened it's fearsome maw to take a bit out of Roy's carcass. Only to look up in confusion as the body attached to it's massive sword popped into a puff of smoke. It looked around in ange wondering what was going on, and then saw a trail of blood leading back in to the cloud of smoke. It roared loudly and began to blast ball after ball of darkness into the smoke trying desperately to hit Roy.
All of the sudden another smoke cloud formed around the beast, this time it came from a smoke bomb, a mundane item that caused a similar effect as his smoke screen spell. The demon caught up in this trap started swinging it's sword to and fro as it lost itself in a wild frenzy. Soon enough Roy's smoke hands launched themselves forwards and struck the beast. Only six of them remained after Roy's smoke clone was destroyed, and those balls of darkness were sent in to smoke. But six would have to be enough for the moment, at least enough to cause a distraction. The demon fought with those hands and after they struck him several times he was finally able to destroy each one of them, until only one remained. This hand landed one last blow on the beast, but was then run through by it's massive magical sword and destroyed. Finally all of the smoke clouds cleared, and the demon looking each way found Roy standing behind him, nursing a quite a few bleeding wounds, but smiling grimly nonetheless.
The beast was somewhat shocked as Roy charged him and raised his fist to strike him. He could hardly do more than run forward at the moment, at least so it seemed by looking at him, so the demon charged ahead at Roy lifting it's blade in the air and striking downward at him, Roy's body suddenly lifting and positioning himself away from the cavern wall, as beneath his feet formed his smoke cloud. Riding on this it only served to increase his momentum even more, as well as aiding him in dodging the creatures blade. Roy shouted loudly as he came face to face with the massive demon, completely caught unawares by this attack, and being struck soundly in the face by Roy's fist, which almost immediately erupted in flames, and ignited the methane gas that he had slowly filled the area with. Delivering a devastating blow, followed by a massive explosion and finally taking the damned monster down. Roy's cloud set him down near his pipe, which he immediately picked up and igniting with a quick burst of sparks, he started to smoke from it again.
His heart beat finally slowed down, and Roy decided that he would use a few of the health restoring items that he was given for every quest by the Sabertooth guild to take care of his numerous bleeding wounds, and the even more prominent damage that his body had taken from thrashed about by the demon's strength and magic.
He breathed deeply of his smoke, and some fresh, finally feeling his heart beat slowing down. He looked around wondering where Zar was. Now that his anger had subsided somewhat, and he was able to think rationally.
