    Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Johann on 18th March 2018, 3:26 am

    Event Info:

    It was a relatively quiet day for Johann von Weiss, one of the three Vice Presidents to the West Fiore Trading Company on Tolgalen. Since the CEO had helped in taking some measures to ensure that paperwork would be dealt with more ... efficiently in the future, and so now even Johann who would normally be flooded with all manners of forms, letters and other forms of paper work to sign, stamp or write, had a surprising amount of spare time recently, which the man started using to experiment with some of his relatively new found powers, more specifically, the enormous understanding of runes and the arts connected to them. Deciphering them, inscribing them, manipulating them to his will using the flow of magic was a simple task for the man, but he went deeper, starting to play around with the runes that covered his body since his awakening, altering the effects they had on his physical form and changing things such as strength, speed, reactions et cetera all while gradually deepening his knowledge of runes greatly. So much so in fact that he started to notice the patterns on the items he had retrieved from his trip back to Amber Island, the place he had called his home until the events of a day that would shape his existence to this day. One of them, and intricately decorated blue rapier covered with both dark black and purple as well as white runes seemed to contain not just a blessing, but also a curse. The other one, the small silver amulet on a chain with a small runed amber in it's middle seemed to contain a seal of sort, though the old man hadn't figured out what exactly it was and how it could be used.

    Thus he spent his days, including this one, sitting in the comfortable leather seat before his desk in his office and scribbling runes into a notebook, then on paper and into circles, only pausing for the occasional break or snack every other hour up until the early evening hours, the sun starting to set with the last bright orange and red hues finding their way through the large window behind him. Johann closed the book and stored the rest in a drawer in his desk, the chair behind him creaking a little as he stood up before stretching. A relatively quiet day, indeed. Johann had gotten used to carrying around all the stuff he needed, the two sheathed rapiers dangling on each side of his belt, the two amulets, the amber and the black silver and wood cross, around his neck and the white runed gloves on the man's hands. Johann sighed as his gaze shifted from the ceiling to the window behind him, turning around to see the woodlands around the HQ stretching out as far as the eye could see outside, the orange and red of the evening sun making the treetops seem like a sea of raging fire as the light was reflected by their leaves. It would have been a truly idyllic moment, had it not been for the fanatic knocking on the door. "For the gods sake stop that infernal tumult !" he exclaimed loudly as he rushed to the door, opening it hastily to see before him a blonde, relatively tall young man, maybe 20 years of age, in a white uniform with brown decorations, wearing a distinct, white hat. A WFTC Sailor, the Navy to e exact. The man opened his mouth, but, severely out of breath, all he could muster was a stutter and broken syllables, Johann raising and eyebrow at the figure who desperately tried to articulate.

    "Easy, friend. What's wrong ?" the Vice President asked with a concerned tone, placing his hand on the other's shoulder as he seemed to catch his breath again "S-s-Sir, we *cough* we are being invaded ! T-The trading docks ... have already been overrun and we are unable to muster a response ...". "WHAT. How is that even ... nevermind. Who and how many ?" "W-we don't know ... It's a horde, Sir, and too many to even count ..." "Make sure everyone knows ! I'll take a look at this myself.", with that pushing aside the man and rushing down the stairs of the entrance hall. It seems like most people of the HQ had already caught wind of the attack, people were shouting past each other, running around wildly and seemingly in disarray. This situation was more than a surprise. The security measures in Tolgalen had be increased dramatically, and yet somehow someone had still managed to slip through the cracks. Johann bit his lip as he pushed open the huge mahogany front doors of the HQ building, storming off toward the coast at speeds barely faster than 3 times that of sound, the air behind him cracking in a characteristic boom. It took him a couple of seconds to reach the docks and as he came to a stop, he saw it. On the cold grey cobble of the stones below was a mass, no, a horde of creatures, covering the ground entirely and growing by the second, streams of monsters pouring out of a large, blue magicseal on one of the various docking areas. The sailor wasn't lying when he called this an invasion, Johanns eyes wandering over the tide of enemies that flooded the space between buildings like a wave of destruction before drawing his two blades.

    Ruvel had recently spent the last month unable to leave his room due to illness as much as he hated being trapped within the confines of his bedroom, he knew for a fact that if he hadn't then he would be in a world of trouble; not only from his summons but his adoptive elder brother. Standing he sighed his hand going through his messy bed hair then fixing himself still dressed in the ice blue and white yukata type robe he wore when he was sick before slowly heading for the door. His head felt fuzzy from the constant resting, he hadn't ate or drank the entire time but there was a reason for this; his summons gave some of their energy to maintain him almost like a magical IV. He couldn't help but worry about the people within that city to the north, more so as he hadn't had enough time to explain the goings on to Sol before having to go into a month long magical coma curtsy of his pushing it and his summons forcing it. "I'm awake now, I really hope things haven't gotten out of control or spread." he said to himself as he walked out of his room seemingly in a daze as he headed to the elevator.

    Seeing the light he winced his hand going up to prevent himself from being blinded "You'd think someone who bleeds the stuff wouldn't get blinded by it." he huffed at himself as he got in "Reception." he said knowing he'd get there instantly, he had to find one of the others so he could let them know the information finally 'You don't have to remain silent anymore' he let his summons know, he knew Cirven would be a combination of concerned and wanting to use him as his personal bouncy ball for going off the reservation and not having the summons share anything with him "I'm in so much trouble..." he said sighing scratching his head starting to go towards the double doors knowing that it would be better just to get it over and done with instead of having his elder brother hunt him down, which would make this situation worse. He was still in his own head for the longest time not really paying much mind to those around him, those of the guild knowing with how he had been inside for so long not to ask to many questions.

    It was when he reached the door his eyes went wide as he realised something, it had been at least two months since he had last seen the wonder that was Masha. "She's not going to be best pleased with me either..." his hand went to his head realising that this day was going to be a headache "I'll make her a gift, that should make her happy." he said gently almost daydream a warm sigh escaping his mouth, it was then he remembered that while in his comatose state that his dreams had been of the one he had met at the wedding. 'What the hell is going on with me? This is in no way normal, is it... ugh.. headache' he still had no idea why he reacted in such a way around the taller woman but he was sure in time it would become clear. He came out of his head as he seen something glowing in the distance his brow furrowing "What on earth is that?" he said forgetting Cirven and Masha's wrath for the moment, something was happening in the small town near the docks. "Has there been a blood and blue moon happening at the same time?" he said almost tripping over his own feet given he hadn't moved in around a month.

    After around ten minutes of running and almost falling he managed to get to the location coming to a screeching halt, it didn't even take the youth a moment to realise what the circles where "Summoning circles? Why would they be here? Where's the summoner?" he questioned unable to figure out how they got past the defences of the guild. His dual coloured eyes carefully searching the vicinity for answers but could see nothing which caused him to feel at ill ease, whoever had orchestrated this attack had made a mistake that was for sure. His eyes blinked a few times seeing his co keeper at the edge of the small town's limits closer to the docks it wasn't overly surprising however as this was part of their jobs, his hand going quickly to his ear 'Mr. Weiss, any idea what is going on with the summoning circle' he asked knowing that the other had a special connection in place so 'upper management' could speak freely without worrying about being heard. His hand lowered as he moved forward looking to the glowing blue summoning circle knowing that this had to be taken care of and quickly, if it wasn't more of these things could get free and more innocent civilians could be hurt. "You'd think being a summoner I'd know how these things would work." he said to himself frustrated squatting looking at the symbols, he knew he'd be able to deal with the infernal thing but it would take a while. His hand going to his ear 'I'll help when I can, but I want to deal with this thing first so no more can get through.' he sent to the other he knew that they where powerful but the numbers were to much for even them, he really hoped others would turn up to help at least he knew the place was getting evacuated and quickly so no unneeded casualties would happen.

    Masha glared defiantly at the docks as the boat came closer. That ass. That ass. THAT ASS. How dare he not contact her for two fucking months?! After such a wonderful date too. Masha sighed at the memory of it. If only she could have that night back. Maybe spend it without the scrawny little dipshit that couldn't even have the decency to tell her he was disappearing for a few months. Masha grit her teeth. Her mood was not improved by the men who had their eyes on her butt. Or maybe it was her tramp stamp on the middle of her back. It didn't matter. She wouldn't blame their gaze on her outfit either. She had the right to dress as sexily as she wanted. If that meant short-shorts that didn't even cover her butt and a bandeau bra that her breasts threatened to to pop out of she had that right! Masha scowled at the men staring at her. The sailors quickly got back to whatever they had been doing. This outfit would make Ruvel's beady little duel colored eyes bug out of his fucking face. She patted the blade strapped to her thigh. Maybe she would castrate him a little bit. Just to show him how wrong he had been. Then he could spend the day pleasing her. A light blush spread across her face.

    The boat slid into place in the docks. Masha jumped off the ship, ignoring the groans of the sailors. They no longer amused her. Her mind and heart were set on revenge against the short little-- What was that? Blue flashes came from all around her. Those were quickly followed by screams. Come to think of it there had been screams and blue flashes earlier as well. Was this the second wave of an attack against the WFTC? Or was she in the middle of some kind of training for the sparkling guild of goodness? Masha decided that was the case. Ruvel had avoided her for a couple months. This must be a ploy to keep her away from him. Well it wasn't going to work! She marched straight through the center of the buildings, only to have swarms of creatures come at her from every side. Masha cracked her knuckles and grinned. She could blow off some steam crunching these little things. They wouldn't even be a good work out but eh. Still would be fun.

    Masha took off, red mist curling down her body. She placed the seal in the way of the oncoming horde behind her. The creepy huge rats would deserve the surprise they were about to get. Masha shuddered. Who wanted rats like that? Rats were disgusting. She called up Akane and Rin. She wanted to do some damage against the goblins in front of her. Akane put up more of a fight than Rin, fueled by the rage within Masha's heart. The mage wasn't having any of it. Not until she had a nice long chat with her 'boyfriend'. Frozen fire formed around her fists, transforming them into lethal weapons. Slamming her fists into two goblins, Masha's attack started with two sudden gouts of flame. She didn't mind if she singed the place up a little. Ruvel would probably have to fix it up. There was a small debate of deliberately doing damage to give the bastard more work. That was waved aside in favor of simply attacking. The goblins had a nice crunch under her fist. She could definitely have some fun with this. Only a few moments into her attack, the ground behind her erupted into large tentacles, tossing rats into the air. SHe checked over her shoulder briefly. The eight tentacles had each grabbed a rat. While it wasn't intended to attack, the swarm of rats was causing the tentacles to act rather like a swinging mace or bludgeon. It was a nice turnabout. Rats flew everywhere and she didn't have to deal with them.

    The goblins were transfixed by her bouncing chest. It enraged her when she finally noticed. This outfit was for Ruvel. "RUVEL! You scum sucking bastard! Show your slimy face so I can kick your teeth in!" Masha called upon Mara, brutally beating the personality in the fight for dominance. Her fist connected with the next goblin. The poor little guy was thrown, the swarm at his back creating a large wave away from her that would be hard to miss. "COME ON! Ruvel! We have a date planned!" She spun to strike another opponent. The spin put her body on display outlined by her mass of red hair. "My foot has a date with your ass! Now show yourself already!" In truth, Masha wasn't sure what she would do when she saw Ruvel. She would either slap him, kick him between the legs, or kiss him hard, holding him in place with her fingers running through his hair. She hadn't been able to rid her thoughts of the short gorgeous mage the entire time since their date. That made his lack of communication so much more devastating. Masha had never before thought she had found the one. The goblins were starting to lose their enamored nature with her figure. A cut ran across her thigh, another across her upper arm. She hoped the sparkly guild had sent help or she was in a lot of trouble.

    All Rasparov wanted to do right now was rest. All he had done the last few weeks was fight something or someone, do missions and get stuck dealing with people that were ass backward and had no right in living for any longer than the last few breaths they had gotten to take. Because no one really commanded him for the current time, due to him breaking from the grip of his creators as well as being an elder member of the current guild he was in. He was no ace or leader, but who really tried to argue with someone that was one of the first to sign the charter at the creation of this guild and company? Eyes would be closed, the well-dressed butler looking man laying down in the actual bed he had procured for his house that resided in Tolgalen. He had told everyone he was taking the day off, and that he was not to be disturbed. With his name being the first signature to join this company and guild, he would hope his wishes would remain granted for at least this moment; no matter who was in charge of the place.

    Loud noises outside would cause him to growl, an unholy sounding noise that was from beyond simple human look he had upon himself, as he simply put a pillow over his head and turned onto his side. Were they partying outside? It sure seemed like it. It was unlikely to be any kind of problem, not here in the town run by the guild itself, so the homunculus would simply attempt to ignore it and try to sleep some more. With luck, he would be able to sleep through the whole day before he went and actually had to go out and do something else with the others that he was forced to work with. Ruvel would likely be mad at him for taking the time off, and Cirven would likely be wanting him to practice or improve himself like always. That was like the two of them, but he literally did not care about any of that at all. Kimovich would deal with all of those issues later, right now he would lay here until either someone asked him nicely to do something or he got to sleep for sixteen hours.

    "Ah, Ruvel, good you're here, I really needed the reinforcement. We are being attacked, by a summoner perhaps." the Vice President lifted a hand to his ear to speak through the link to his colleague, his teeth grinding nervously. In truth he had no idea what exactly was going on here. How could it be that these invasions would always somehow manage to overwhelm or bypass the West Fiore Trading Company's safety measures and defenses but in place by them. It truly was most unfortunate, but for now there wasn't much that could be done about that, it was a matter that should be investigated another time, right now he had to focus on what was before him, the for now unending swarm of various monsters, ranging from oversized rats to even small goblin-like creatures grunting in sick pleasure and monstrous bees too. He had to defend the docks, the town before they could push further inland. He had sworn an oath to protect this land after all, should it be necessary even with his life. "Do as you see fit, my friend. I will try and thin out the horde as much as possible", with that he lowered his hand, and, a rapier in his hand, plunged forward towards the enemies ahead, ready to purge the invading forces.

    A line of red runes started running down Johann's face as his left eye turned black, his red pupil starting to shine in a deep blood red along with his runes, the aura around him surging with raw strength as the grip on the hilts of his rapiers tightened, flames springing forth from his fingers that covered the blades entirely just a moment later. It didn't take long for the first slash with his weapon to find a target, a rat leaping at him from a street corner, the old man cutting it in half in a single, flaming strike, followed by two more rushing at him, the two becoming three, and slowly their numbers started to increase ever so steadily. Still, these lowly life forms were no match for him, the Vice President cutting down one after the other as they died with infernal shrieking, without making much of an actual impact for now however. The alleyway before him was now filled with the pest, squeaking terrifyingly as they pushed each other forward, Johann continuing to slash through bodies whenever they came into the reach of his weaponry. Much to his annoyance though it became apparent that he couldn't stop the never ending tide of vermin rushing forward at him, and something had to be done. Johann bit his lip as he retreated a few meters back, bringing a bit of distance between himself and the front line of the swarm before raising his right hand that still firmly clutched the hilt of the weapon, pointing the blade straight at the sky, his pupils filling with an unnatural, deeply yellowish-white colour, from his mouth speaking a voice that was not his.

    "O lux iridescentia, qui purificio mundum peccatum, placant tuam iram, incendi !"

    A white aura formed around his blade before erupting outward violently, filling the area in bright, blinding light, incinerating the swarm rats all around, burning their bodies away to ash as the scorching, holy light continued to shine from the rapier.

    Translation:

    Oh iridescent light, you who purge the world of sin, I invoke thine wrath, incinerate !

    Ruvel continued to read over the symbols and words slowly translating the summoning circles structure though rubbed his eyes as this was taking more effort than really it should as he moved his hand forward touching a symbol or odd word sometimes even altering it "At this rate this is going to take all week." he quietly complained to himself knowing touching one wrong thing and not only was he gonna get hurt but likely start from the beginning but then it was better him than another as though it may take him time to decipher the magic of the circle at least it was something that he could actually understand. Not looking up he heard Johann speaking to him through the bond as he continued working on the task at hand, placing his right hand to his ear 'Yes, I seen the ruckus so came to see what the issue was going on.' he sent to the other nodding to the others word 'That's a good assumption given with what I am dealing with, do your best if need be I will stop and summon to help you while I tend to my puzzle.' he chuckled but that is exactly what it was at this point, taking his had down he was about to touch another symbol when he heard a voice he recognised and it sound mad.

    Turning to where the voice had come from he put his hand wrong symbol which knocked him back twenty meters into a building making him wince crying out a bit as he stayed there for a few moments winded 'She knows when to choose her moments...' he thought to himself as he silently sighed slowly stood holding his wrists "Miss Dymonrel, there's no need to yell; I request that you refrain from doing so." he said covering his chest once more since his night yukata had opened slightly "Many of us have sensitive hearing here." he added moving towards her, just by his messy appearance it was clear he had recently just woken and instantly ran down to the docks "We can sort our issues after I have done my job and protected the people from whatever is attacking us." he said his voice sounded annoyed he was in no mood to be yelled at by anyone especially her at current; given he had been working constantly for over a month to the point that had effected him so much he had to rest in his room for a month, only to wake to this problem.

    "I realise that a vast amount of time has passed since we done our last task together, no I have not been avoiding you, I have duties to the trading company I must tend to. My last duty lasted over a month and pushed me to the point I made myself deadly sick and had me bed ridden for a month, I just got better today thus my current state." he said laying everything out on the table for her "So if you want to attack me, feel free to do it!" his eyes glowing and harsh towards her, it was almost as if this was a different man "Yes, I care for you but I have duties to the people of Tolgalen too! I would not make you choose me over your duties and it is selfish for you to expect me to do it especially when tending both is possible!" he said flicking his hand causing half a dozen rats the size of Pomeranians to have a seal of light form under them within seconds they where caught in light tendrils and in his hands a kodachi appeared in each as he ran forward slashing each in quick succession in fast paced slashes as he let out his frustration of what had just happened. It was when he was turning into a slash he noticed a familiar house nearby 'Rasparov... Is he even home? I really hope so right now...' he thought to himself knowing that his hand to hand combat would be a great advantage right now.

    "Maera..." he called weakly smiling as he continued the horrible task he was dealing with at current, behind his hair the normal gentle bell jingle could be heard but unlike her normal self there was no giggle. "Big sister the house near the tree over there is where Rasparov stays, could you please go and see if he is home? If he is home please see if he will lend a hand so I can close that portal." he said to her "Okay, I'll go... be careful." she said flying off the jingle of the bell becoming more distant, Ruvel knew this wasn't her normal task but it was gathering information within reason. When she got to the window she landed on the window sill and knocked as hard as she could on the window though given her size it would still be nothing more than a small stone hitting the window; if Rasparov got up and opened the window she would look up to him with a pleasant smile and wave. she was around three inches tall wearing an ice blue and white dress that resembles a lotus in design, her long white hair that has a hairpin within it with a lotus matching the dress a small bell dangling from white silk cord coming from the pin. "Hi again Rasparov! Remember me? I'm Maera!" she would say with a cheerful tone looking back towards where Ruvel and the others where.

    "Um... little brother sent me for your help..." she would say flying up so they would be at eye level "The port is under attack, there's a summoning circle and there are swarms of things..." she seemed slightly distressed "Little brother has just gotten better and he's already started at it again. I recognise one of the swarms as hellwasps... little brother gets very badly affected by poisons and venoms... please... please help..." she begged the much taller man almost in tears truly hoping he would agree to help. She knew of his past no secrets where kept between summoner and summon but they where bound by the same silence there Ruvel was due to what it would mean if they didn't keep the others secret. "You are a former rune knight, you know how dangerous those wasps are, can you imagine them taking over little brother or even Demi?" she said knowing the other would understand that these things had to go for everyone's safety; if he agreed she would move onto his shoulder knowing he would take her base speed given what she had seen on fat monster island.

    As the conversation with Rasparov was going on Ruvel had taken on six more of the oversized plague baring rats "This place is gonna need to be decontaminated, just what we need." he said as he sat back by the circle pressing the symbols as he had before in his left hand still sat a kodachi still made of light as he quickly got back to where he was his right hand rubbing his head as he just wanted to go back to sleep "Almost done... I think..." he said hoping that it was as he touched four more symbols dispursing the summoning circle his hand going to his ear 'Mr. Weiss the summoning circle is gone.' he said hoping that another wasn't just about to pop up somewhere else in the vicinity, he would sit for a moment before getting up 'Where do you need me Mr. Weiss?' he sent to the other knowing he would know where the problem areas where but this place seemed overran no matter where he looked, he hoped Rasparov had been home and that Maera had been successful in gaining his help because this seemed like it would never end. 'Who done this and why? I'd hate to be them when we get our hands on them that's for damn sure.' his hand clenching the light made kodachi to the point his knuckles went white.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Masha on 9th April 2018, 12:19 am

    Masha hoped she wasn't drooling when she noticed Ruvel's shirt was open. It wasn't much to look at, not like the guys she used to go after. Still, it set her on fire and she wanted to see more. Her distraction had one of the goblin's sword painting a line across her back. While she was crushing the goblin's head with her fist, she completely missed whatever Ruvel was trying to say to her. "Sensitive hearing huh?" She muttered under her breath then scowled at his next comment. Was she so easy to brush aside? Why couldn't they talk now? It wasn't as if the enemy was that hard to take care of. The heel of her boot smashed through another goblin's head. They were too distracted by her body to put up any real defense. It was disappointing really. Since she wanted to have a talk with Ruvel, might as well unleash that one.

    A deep breath wasn't necessary for the spell but Masha took it anyway. Lorelei was the most compelling of her alter egos, and now wasn't the time for her to be taking over. There had already been a massive risk in unleashing Mara and Akane when she was very bitter plus rage filled. Tolgalen was Ruvel's home. Her personalities wouldn't hesitate to wreck havoc on it which was something Masha could not abide by. While she didn't much care for the WFTC, it was clear to her that Ruvel found it important. Lorelei slid into Masha's mind as she always did. Her tattoo of green fire was probably glowing. Seductive promises of passionate nights with Ruvel were whispered and Masha came very close to handing control over to her alter ego. The only thing that stopped her was the fact that she wouldn't remember any of it. She never remembered what her alter egos did. That alone kept the mage sane. She touched the hairpin Ruvel had given her. A quick check made sure Ruvel was outside her spell's range. Then she unleashed it.

    Anyone with a sensitive nose would have smelt what happened. The phermones rushed from Masha's body creating a giant invisible cloud. The goblins rushing toward the red haired mage suddenly stopped, their eyes filled with adoration. Masha hated that look. The goblins piled into one another, more and more falling under her control. "Ah my darlings! Those mean rats and wasps are attacking me! Kill them for me?" The goblin army now under her control roared before they went to war. A wave of them rushed forward, slamming into the horde of rats. Masha waited until the area around her was once again filled with goblins to send another wave as reinforcements against the rats. Satisfied with her work, Masha turned to a goblin. Her instructions to him were simple: 'Stay in this area and inform every goblin to enter that by the decree of Queen Masha, they were to attack the rats and wasps in town. Also to prevent any damage to the town that could be prevented.' That would keep a steady supply of goblins crashing against the innumerable amount of wasps and rats.

    Finished with her task, Masha stepped out of the cloud toward Ruvel. She had heard his challenge, heard his explanation and she wanted to discuss it with him. Her eyes narrowed as she approached the slight mage. "Come here you!" He was sitting on the ground, his hand to his ear. Her lips slammed against his, her need for him evident in the desperate way she kissed him. Her hands fisted on his clothing even though she really wanted to pet his chest. Masha's cheeks were pink when she pulled away quickly. "How was my attack?" She whispered. Then she shook herself. This was no time to go soft. Despite the thought, she smoothed out his yukata. "Next time? Call a girl. We get worried when people don't contact us. I have no problem with you taking care of yourself or your company. All I want is a heads up next time. Not that there will be a next time." Her fingers gently brushed the hair off his forehead. Then she turned and waded back into battle. She didn't want Ruvel to see the tears gathering in her eyes. She willed them not to fall. If he couldn't contact her, then they couldn't be together. Communication was everything. "Goodbye Ruvel." She whispered knowing he could probably hear her. "Be happy."

    Masha ran together with her goblin troops, determined to do her best to help out Tolgalen. She would try not to destroy too much but only for Ruvel. They might not be together yet her feelings for him hadn't diminished. What he wished to protect, so did she. She reached for Rin, knowing the cold personality would tempt her greatly. The lure of feeling nothing at all was great. Then she wouldn't have to worry about Ruvel or her breaking heart. Rin almost beat her until Masha pulled back together. She needed to feel the hurt if she was to heal. Blue mist formed over her hands in that moment. Every rat she touched gained a sudden coating of ice. They stumbled and fell, squealing, easy prey for her goblins. In a few places, Masha covered the ground in ice that would trip up the rat horde or send them sliding across the ground. Her reckless headlong rush into battle gained her several dozen bites across her entire body. The pain was welcomed and embraced, used as a block against the emotional pain she was in. The blood left a steady trail behind her, almost as if her body was weeping while her eyes stayed dry.

    The people outside would just continue to grow louder and louder, screaming and running and banging things together in a racket that would eventually drive him to the point of being angry. There was no way he was going to sleep through this level of noise outside, and thus he would get out of bed and prepare himself in his standard butler uniform and prepared his weapons. The creature had no intention of leaving his house, but he was aware that someone could ask him to go on a job at any time so he may as well be ready for that when it came upon him. The kitchen would be entered as he opened the fridge and took out a small box that held a random soul that Ruvel had given him. It was something he knew would not be a challenge for him so he simply popped the soul orb into his mouth and devour it before tossing the box in the trash and turning around to talk out into the living room. It was just before he sat down, mere moments before he set his body on the couch so that he could relax and watch something on the large lacrima-vision he had purchased so he was not mortally bored as he tried to drown out the noises from outside, something would strike against his window.

    Did...did someone just throw a rock at his window? The window of the house that he had purchased? The purchased house that everyone in town knew was under his ownership? That was it, that was the final straw! He was going to murder whoever had thrown the rock, and it would be painful. The skin would be peeled back, maybe he would even spray some lemon juice on them while they writhed in pain as well! Walking up to the window, the anger palpable in the room as he moved across the room, the ex-Rune Knight would see a familiar faerie tapping on his window. The sigh would be visible to Maera before he opened the window, letting her speak so that he could find out what the hell she wanted with him.  "Of course I remember you, Maera. It's hard for me to forget anything I've learned, unfortunate as it may be." The male would speak it over her as she talked, able to listen to what she was saying at the same time. The tiny creature would go on to talk about how 'little brother' was in trouble and that there were dangerous swarms coming out of summoning circles throughout the town they currently resided in.

    The swarm mentioned was not one Rasparov Kimovich was fond of. He had dealt with them when he had been in the Rune Knights, and he still hated them. They were large wasps that had a powerful sting that made even mages sick immediately. Enough stings were fatal, and a fatality just made those that could see what was going on realize just how dangerous the wasps really were. They were practically necromancers once inside of a body, able to control it as if they were still alive. He was not sure how, but they were able to use everything that the deceased had upon or within them at the time of death. Weapons, magic, it did not matter they knew how to use it somehow. They were generally managed well, but for this many to be here a powerful being, or group of beings, had to be working hard at breeding them and controlling them as well. A demon of bugs perhaps? Or maybe a mage with great control over such creatures? There was no way to be sure, but it definitely caused Rasparov to get on the move. "I will see myself to Ruvel immediately. Do not worry about his safety from here on out. We'll stop this incident immediately and get the town back to the way it was before it had happened." With that said the man would close the window and look as if he was taking a step closer to the now-closed glass creation. To Maera it would seem he disappeared, though he had really teleported outside and behind her so that he could begin his run towards where he could sense Ruvel as he drew both of his swords.

    A shield would come forth around him, blocking attacks from rats, goblins, and hellwasps for a moment before the shield would give out. Normally this would be something to worry about, though his shield had another thing to keep himself safe. Instead of just flickering out, or ceasing to exist as if never there, the shield would flare out into a burst of white flames that would clear a large swathe in all directions. The direct area being clear would allow him to sprint unhindered until more began to try and block his path. These would be caught in attacks from his two swords as well as the spines that suddenly erupted from his entire body. Enemies impaled themselves upon spines even as he shrugged them off as he swung his swords with as much force as was needed to kill the small creatures in this swarm. It was not hard, but it was a lot of them. Wounds he took would close quickly, the life essence of those hit by his attacks seeping into him with each one he struck, until he found himself within a few meters of Ruvel. "Quite the situation we seem to find ourselves in, Ruvel. Shall we get to the root of the current matter so we can figure out who came up with this plan in the first place? They need to die, and I have no qualms with going out myself once we figure out the master of this plan." No one else but Ruvel would be able to hear him with all the chaos going around, no one that would live through today at least, so he would have no trouble allowing the hatred and spite he held inside of him out for a few moments as he talked about the current situation. It was not pretty, but he had no doubt at least he would make it out alive.

    "That's a damn good question" Johann gave back to Ruvel through the link as he held up his blade, the scorching light still shining from his weapon incinerating about a dozen rats before him, the vermin crumbling to ash in mere moments "But I'm glad we have the spread under control. The sky is swarming with wasps and on the ground I can see ginormous rats and and even what appears to be Goblins, in honesty, we could use all the help we can get, everywhere. Looks like whoever is staging this attack is really meaning it", the blinding light now retreating back to the white, glowing runes that covered the rapier "whoever did this will pay ..."

    But Johann could see, Ruvel did indeed speak truth. Of course he did, he couldn't lie, but he noticed that the swarm of rats, it had been about 50 of them before him alone, slowly got smaller and smaller as they dispersed or had perished by the Vice President's holy flames. Still, Johann stopped for a second as he sniffed a bit, noticing a sudden scent, sweet, yet still extreme in it's own right, filling the air everywhere. He was intrigued, and almost found himself turning into the direction it was coming from, but shook his head. No, there was no time for this, what was he thinking. The alleyway he had been fighting in was now empty, save for the crumbled piles of fine ash on the ground, and thus he moved on, taking a turn left and bursting through the small streets, eventually reaching a small square, and what he saw before him made his blood boil, the vein on his temple swelling in anger. A swarm of enormous wasps unlike anything he had ever seen before had made this space theirs, the air humming with the sounds of their wings quickly moving back and forth. It was not just that though. Amongst the swarm of gigantic insects were ... people. About a dozen of them, at least. "What the hell ?!"

    Did they not notice the wasps ? No, impossible, but ... they were moving strangely, stiff, uncoordinated and suddenly. Something was going horribly wrong here, but he had no time to think about that right now, his left eye and rapiers flaring up with red runes before, just a second later, the weapons were covered in blazing flames, the fire erupting from the blades. With that, he hurled himself forward, immediately cutting in half a wasp that had gotten too close before immediately striking down another one and another one. The fire was making short work of them, but, naturally, slowly but surely the swarm noticed him, torched wasps falling out of the sky by the dozens. Despite that, there were more, and more still, the amount of insects seemingly ever increasing as Johann fought his way further into the swarms midst. This was bad, granted, his movements were fast, yes, extremely so, but against the sheer number of enemies he was powerless, a sudden, sharp pain pulsating through his shoulder, a stinger had dug itself into it. He was quick to make short work of the insect that had dared to injure him, but the immediately healing wound didn't seem to be the problem. Johann felt a sudden pain in his head as everything around him started spinning in circles, he had trouble even standing up straight, still fending off the enormous wasps with both rapiers as he desperately tried to stay on his feet. This was bad. Even with his healing factor, the poison was affecting him more than it should. He just had to hold out, continuing to burn wasp after wasp, not noticing that the figures from before, seemingly human, had started to make their way towards him, each clutching some sort of weapon, improvised or not.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Ruvel on 20th April 2018, 2:43 am

    Ruvel sighed a little as Masha repeated but one mere sentence of what he had said, to him it was clear she hadn't paid attention to more than those two words but given the circumstances he couldn't exactly chastise her for such a thing. "Yes, myself included; it's one of the down sides of being a slayer." he explained hoping she would pay attention to what he had said that time. He understood that he had been short with her but it wasn't exactly like they had the time to stop and swap life stories, this was his home and it was under attack; this meant to him that conversing could wait until the threat was dealt with. This didn't meant that she was easy to dismiss but it also meant he had to think of those whom couldn't defend themselves "I'm sorry if I am short tempered at the moment Miss Dymonrel but remember when I spoke of my duties... the safety of civilians is one of them now you can either accept that this is part of who I am and be content or don't and we go our separate ways..." he sighed flicking his hand a light seal appearing under six of the hellwasps encasing them in light. "I would rather the latter didn't happen but this isn't my decision to make... so make your choice." he said in a cold tone as a scythe with barbs around it appeared in his hands, which Rasparov would easily be able to identify as Demi's as he dashing towards the six hellwasps entombed within the light tendrils he had made.

    Moving quickly from one to the next he easily decapitated them without an ounce of the hesitation he once held, it was almost as if something had taken over the fragile youth. This wasn't entirely wrong if this was any other place he would have likely hesitated as he always had but this was a threat on a place that was important to him and that couldn't be allowed. 'If I hesitate... if they need to stop to protect me... I become a burden and those who really need the help get hurt...' He remembered Rasparov's and Cirven's words well and it was clear he had been practising with just how much finesse he was using with the scythe, he spun and twirled in his normal acrobatic way but not once did the blade get near his fragile form. He had no idea what was going on after he had left Masha's spell range he was more concentrating on the goblins that were around him his hand going into his yukata top pulling out a charm "Seiyuki" he called throwing the charm on the floor a snow storm passing by to the side of him stood a tall pale woman, with long white hair wearing a ice blue and white kimono "You summoned Ruvel?" he asked looking at the chaos around her with platinum blue eyes "I see the issue, consider it done..." she said creating needles of ice throwing them with deadly accuracy at three of the goblin's necks freezing them on impact.

    He brought up his hand to his ear 'Mr Weiss I sent one of my summons to see if Rasparov's home, I'm hoping he is as his efforts would cut down the threat quickly.' he sent the other knowing especially having Maera on his shoulder for a short time would make him easily the fastest of them, he just hoped that another summoning circle didn't turn up because they took time to disable but was glad for the moment they only had to deal with what got through that single circle. He would still love to get his hands on the one who had the bright idea that attacking Tolgalen was to their advantage, given they self governed everything and though they 'listened' to the magic council they had no legitimate sway or power over the goings on in the nation. He turned his head feeling Maera's bond strengthening and smiled feeling the familiar energy of the one known to the guild as Rasparov Kimovich, he on the other hand knew the truth of this man but then they knew the truth of each other. Secrets that if they came out would change everything for them both it was because of this the youth trusted Rasparov as a friend but went to him as a teacher on things others wouldn't understand.

    Hearing Rasparov's voice he nodded "I've managed to close the summoning circle, with you here that makes four so we should be able to get the threat tended to quickly." he said to the other Maera was going to say something but before she got the chance Ruvel got a stinger going through his shoulder, and fell forward wincing as he hadn't been expecting it, he knew better than to lower his defences when battle was still going on. He then tried to get up but fell back down again the poison going through his system "Tch..." was the only sound that escaped his lips, he wasn't about to stop trying to get up that was for sure "Ruvel, stay down for now... trust us to protect you!" Seiyuki ordered turning three ice needles aiming to the head of the wasp, the first two bounced off but had weakened the head of the thing to allow the third to get through "Venoms and poisons are far more deadly to him Rasparov, I'm sure Maera told you... please take care of the wasps first." she requested of the other, the summons also knew the true nature but were bound under the same vows Ruvel made and that would have been made clear by Demi to the tall male who came off as little more than a butler.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Masha on 22nd April 2018, 12:51 am

    Masha felt as if Ruvel had completely ignored her plea as she hurried away surrounded by goblins. It was as if he hadn't even listened to her whatsoever. She didn't care that his duties were important to him or that his home was a part of who he was. That wasn't the issue. It was a little detrimental in her opinion, but that wouldn't get in her way. Communication was the root of her issue above all other things. The goblins surged around her as she stumbled, tears thick in her eyes. She would not cry. Not here, not now. All she had to do was help protect the port. Then she could disappear and Ruvel would never have to worry about her again. With the way he had acted, Masha thought Ruvel hadn't even thought of her in their time apart. The thought was crushing.

    A full stop came over Masha. Right in front of her was a massive knot of wasps. As she looked closer, she could see people within the ranks of the insects. Her mouth curled into a frown. What was that about? Why weren't the people running away? A mage from the WFTC was fighting inside the impressive sized hive thing of wasps. His flaming rapiers caught Masha's eyes and she watched for a few moments. His form blurred constantly, reappearing elsewhere as he fought. He could either teleport or moved faster than Masha's eye could follow. Her lapse in concentration prevented Masha from noticing her goblin army streaming into the wasps. She only noticed when one of the wasps headed straight for her. "Shit! Goblins don't harm the people! Only knock them out!" Masha cried out rolling away from the attacking wasp.

    A cut burned upon her lower back, probably from the wasp's stinger she thought. As she went to stand, the poison shot through her system with frightening speed. She could feel it attempting to invade her mind. It blurred her sight for a moment as she forced herself to her feet. This was nothing compared to the torment the scientists had put her through. Her body shuddered as Masha put one foot in front of the other. The cut would close quickly. Then the poison would dissipate. Nothing to worry about. Lifting her head felt like a difficult task but Masha managed it and saw the old mage was in trouble. He was distracted defending or attacking the wasps while the people advanced upon him.

    Masha rushed forward. This was for Ruvel only. At any other time, she would have let the people club the old mage into the ground. Letting her goblins attack the wasps--they were launching each other into the air, it was an impressive sight--Masha headed straight for the people. Unable to determine if they were friend or foe, she went for the simple solution: knock them out. "Heads up, ol' guy!" Masha cried out slamming her shin into one of the shambling people's faces. She pulled back just enough to not cause any permanent damage. The body hit the ground and Masha moved onto the next one. She wondered what the old man thought of her outfit. The tiny tube top was barely staying in place and her short shorts had ridden up to reveal even more than before. Masha refused to be embarrassed by it.

    Her hands ached to pull out her blades. That would make attacking these people so much easier. Instead she contented herself with her fists. Ruvel might get angry if she killed anyone and even though she had told him goodbye, Masha hoped to see him again one day. "Hey, ol' guy? Are these guys friend or foe?" She called out snapping the edge of her hand down upon a neck. The body flopped to the ground. Maybe she should have asked the old mage earlier. That might have made things a little easier. A metal pipe slammed into her back causing Masha to cry out. The cry was more one of surprise than pain. She was used to having a pipe slammed into her repeatedly. The scientists had wanted to test her durability. Bastards. Trying to control her temper, Masha spun around. The offending person received a quick one-two jab to the face. It was everything she could do not to deliver the blows at full force. Despite Masha's attempts to thin the ranks of the shambling people, there seemed to be more and more of them. They were encircling the dark mage slowly closing in for the kill.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Rasparov on 25th April 2018, 3:26 pm

    Ruvel would inform him of what he had done, and what was going on, with the thousands of beings that were invading them. It was a good thing that the summoning circle had been shut down already. Who knew what else was in store for them if it had been allowed to continue to spew out monsters even more so than it had already done in the short time if must have been going. All around them were rats, mini-goblins, and hell wasps. Before Rasparov could inquire about anything else Ruvel would get stung by one of the hell wasps that were flying about the place. The homunculus would not react in a worried fashion, he did not even act stunned by the ace of the guild falling to the ground in pain. The boy should have been paying attention, and as he had not he had suffered for it. The sting was not likely to kill him, even with his susceptibility to such things, but he would definitely be down for the count for the time being. "Always be aware Ruvel, never forget that. That is how you die, and we will not always be able to protect you wherever you go and be a constant reminder of it." The smile on his face, seemed genuine to all around, though the words would have a bit to them as they came out. With that said he would allow Seiyuki to handle the protection of Ruvel so that he could do more of his part to clear out the problems that were terrorizing the territory they owned.

    Wasps would try to sting him, striking the scales and spines currently covering all of him, to no avail even as both of his swords let loose a hurricane of blows as he made his way to another in the company that he recognized; Johann. Wasps would be swatted out of the air as he moved towards the other ace of the guild Rasparov currently was aligned to. It would be bad form if he let the older man die. Though Johann likely despised Rasparov Kimovich, the arrogance that radiated from the homunculus due to his 'best butler in the universe' attitude that he used as a public facade was likely the most annoying thing to the guy. Saving him would likely improve the relations between the two of them, and good relations was something the Ex-Rune Knight currently needed if he wished to keep his true existence a secret long enough to reach his end goals. Once he took the life of his creators, stole their knowledge and power, he could move on to bigger targets until he was the most powerful being in existence. Of course, the gods and such would always be over him. There was only so much a mortal could evolve before they hit the top, and after that, it was up to the gods and powers that be to decide if he should rise higher than that.

    Soon he would reach the dense area that Johann had gotten himself trapped in, which also seemed to have another woman with some goblins working with her. Coming towards them were the dead, wasp controlled, bodies that were stumbling and striking at those nearby. "Sorry for this Johann, this is going to burn. Please ensure you do not bite your tongue off in the next few moments." The homunculus would line himself up to make sure that johann and the other girl were before him before he suddenly breathed out white flames. Wasps would crisp, wings and stingers turning into ash for those that did not immediately die, and would strike the dead bodies being controlled as well. With those heating up the bugs would leave them, only to get cooked themselves. Once the breath attack stopped the group would find themselves with a moment of peace as the heat and residual flames have them a respite from the onslaught of flying nightmares. "Ready yourselves, my friends, and let us take care of the rest of this problem so that we can get back to fixing the place back up. After that we can kill whoever was the cause of this." The happy sound in his voice made the last part ever more terrifying to hear. It was almost a guarantee that they all wished for the same thing, but to say it without a hint of anger showed either insanity or a professional control over emotions. Of course he had both, but no one really knew that but his creators, himself, and Ruvel.

    The place was a mess everywhere he looked. Between the flames he had let loose, the terror the swarm was causing, and the spells of everyone else in town that was using magic, everything was being damaged. Cargo, the docks, the buildings...what a pain. He would have to make sure his house was repaired immediately after this was all over. That building being damaged would not be allowed for long, not as long as he was the owner.

    Johann struggled to even keep himself in the fight, his every moves clumsy and slow as the world around him started spinning more and more, the buildings, wasps and even the group of people that was still slowly shuffling towards him gradually disappearing in a white blur more and more. Wasp after wasp managed to pierce Johann's skin with their stinger before being cut down immediately, adding more and more pain to his already dire situation. "Shit", the wounds closed without delay, luckily, but his body wasn't used to this cascade of poison now running through the old man's veins. He swung his rapiers at the blurred form of an insect, missed and tumbled for a second before dropping on his knees. Was this his end ? After all he had seen, after all he had done, he couldn't even protect his home from a swarm of insects ? He was angry. Angry about himself, angry about the wasps, angry that even with his newly found powers he was still weak, so weak that he couldn't even defeat the threat to everything he held so dear. He was ashamed, close to blacking out, the only thing he felt was the burning rage, slowly engulfing his heart like fire. For a brief moment he thought he could hear Ruvel's voice in his head, but he couldn't make out what he was saying. He smiled. "Am I hallucinating ? What ? Why ?"

    Through all the blur and buzz of the insect swarm around he could see a figure approaching, along with a whole dozen of smaller ones, the small figures starting to violently shift and run about as they apparently started engaging the wasp. Johann was confused, were those goblins ? He had cut a whole bunch down earlier when they seemed to be integral part of the swarm flooding the city, but now they had turned against it ? He wasn't sure what even was going on anymore. Among the battlecries of the goblin army and the buzzing of wasps he heard voices, he tried to call out, open his mouth, but no words could form. Instead, Johann spat out blood, unable to even perceive the events around him, everything slowly turning black as his eyes closed, the Vice President's consciousness slowly slipping away as he fell forward. Once again he would fail to save that which he held dear. Once again he couldn't prevent the suffering, and a moment later, the last thing he felt was a sting, heat, and a sharp pain all over his body.

    No. He refused to accept it. This wasn't how it was going to end. He had seen the same scenario before, he had been too weak before, but not this time. In the midst of burning remains, Johann's body moved, lifting himself up back on his knees, the burns all over his body healing in a matter of seconds, the scorched clothing in places revealing glowing, grey runes covering the skin beneath. Slowly but surely, he got back on his feet, energy rushing through his body like a surge of adrenaline, the air around him shimmering, distorted with strange grey glow. It was now that he saw the aftermath of what had happened before for the first time, scorched, beaten, sliced wasps and bodies dotting the cobblestone of the square around, before him another member of the West Fiore Trading Company, Rasparov, accompanied by ... a woman ? Johann had no idea who she was, but he had seen Rasparov around the guild before, and even though Johann hadn't talked to the other extensively aside from a couple of sentences here and there, he never quite could rid himself of the feeling that there was a lot more to this man than he could see. Was it him who had done this ? Johann felt validated in his views, if he had done away with the swarm so effortlessly, truly this man was powerful, more powerful than he himself could hope to be at this point in time. But that was of little importance right now.

    Johann had more questions than answers himself, and still struggled to understand what was even going on with himself or his surroundings when Rasparov's voice reached his ears, and slightly perplexed the VP caught wind of a few scattered words here and there "... my friends ? ... take care ... problem ? ... kill ... kill ?" ... Yes, he had to kill whoever did this to his home, his family, he had to eradicate them from the face of this planet with a happy smile, he was here to purge, he was here to burn, to ripapart, to destroy, the burning rage in his chest flaring up once more, this time spreading throughout his entire body, his hands trembling from the intense emotion that flooded his mind. Without any more words, he gave Rasparov a nod, turning his attention away from the two and towards the rest of the swarm behind. A sinister grin spread across his face, the intense smell of demon emanating from Johann for all that could sense, and with that, he gave himself to the thrill of the hunt.

    His rapiers sheathed and his hands forming claws, Johann once more threw himself into the swarm, things looking entirely different this time. Without delay, the first dozen of wasps approached, proving to be no match for the Vice President this time around, Johann's clawed right hand, surrounded in circulating air, tore asunder the first insect, blood and pieces of chitin splattering as its body broke before he moved on to the next one with speed even greater than that from before. The cracking of their exoskeletons every time he dug his hands through them was music to his ears, and the grin around his lips widened. This was the power he so desired, the power to crush his enemies, the enemies of the Company, of his family. He wouldn't hesitate to use it, digging through the rest of the swarm like a knife through butter, ripping apart the wasps inside, crushing them with nothing but his hands, coming to a stop a minute later, breathing heavily and surrounded by the partially still twitching remains of the ginormous insects all around. The rest of the swarm was gone, and, happy that he had been able to do at least something, Johann dropped to his knees once again. "I'll leave ... the rest ... to you", the runes vanishing from him before he fell forward, hitting the ground with a small thump, unconscious once more.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Ruvel on 2nd May 2018, 6:11 am

    Ruvel had listened to the only female of the team, and even as he worked her words went through his mind but right now wasn't exactly a time were he could stop and explain the reason behind things. Then again he wouldn't go into that anyway, some scars were just to sore and would never heal. He knew this just by the way the others like him reacted, he didn't really see this as a bad thing as it gave them certain insights and alerts that those that hadn't been through what they had didn't; this meant they had an advantage in away and he knew those kinds of things should be used to their benefits. He would make time with her after this whole thing was sorted and at least tell her that he would work on the communication thing, perhaps they could even try another job since their last one was more than a little traumatising for them both. He would have to track that theme park down again at some point and see the rest of it, perhaps even put those doomed to repeat the way they died to rest; but that shouldn't be the thing he was concentrating on right now.

    The thoughts of masha once again entered his mind, a micro expression of a smile on his lips as he remembered that one of his summons had made sure he had, had pleasant dreams and for some reason she had been in them. This would be another thing he would have to talk to the other about, but again it wasn't the time or place for that kind of thing. He was brought out of his own thoughts when he heard Rasparov's voice, he knew all to well that he had fumbled the moment he let his guard down and what happened next was to be expected as he heard Rasparov telling him off for being a damned idiot for what he done ever so bluntly. "Yes, I remember the lessons you and Cirven have both taught me Rasparov." he said with a sigh, there was not much he could do to argue with the other, he had messed up and was now poisoned so was in danger yet again. He knew that Rasparov was looking out for him in his own way, and appreciated it "I understand and will not make the same mistake Rasparov." he said as he started to stand up using the scythe he was holding.

    "Ruvel sit down, you're injured..." Seiyuki moved quickly to get him to sit but he fought against it, he wasn't about to sit while his home was invaded and his guild attack. "I can rest afterwards Seiyuki, right now I have a job and that takes presidence over everything else, even my own well being." his words held strength and determination to them, his eyes going to Rasparov as he nodded with a smile. "Let's get rid of those who would dare attack this company and country." he said calmly before Rasparov ran off to help the others, Ruvel on the other hand moved to the other side of the place they where in and swipped the scythe and arc of energy cutting down three more wasps with ease. As he ran Seiyuki followed between her fingers three needles of ice appeared as she threw them with accuracy towards the mini goblins that where trying to flank them, the sharp needles penetrating their throats administering a dose of deadly frozen poison that killed them instantly. "The stragglers here are taken care of Ruvel." she said seeing him wobble and helping him sit "If we hear there are attacks other places in the village then we move again Seiyuki." he said his tone showing this wasn't up for discussion so all she did was nod, but knew by now mostly everything would have been taken care of, even if it was just the four mages dealing with it the enemy seemed rather weak and relied on their numbers rather than strategy. This made the summon wonder however if this was just a diversion for something bigger.

    Re: Purge the Invader (Ruvel,Rasparov,Johann) [Event]

    Post by Masha on 4th May 2018, 12:07 am

    As the wasps died in a firestorm, the people around Masha slumped to the ground. She wasn't sure what to make of that. Had the wasps been controlling them with their venom? A few of her goblins had died in the fiery blast but she couldn't care. She knew her control was slipping, the goblin horde about to unleash upon the town. "Turn back on yourselves and wipe out every goblin you can!" She cried out in a loud voice over the destruction of the wasp swarm. The goblins obeyed immediately. The carnage took only a few moments before it traveled back towards where she had originally cast her spell. The ground was littered with goblin corpses, leaking green blood in giant pools.

    Now Masha let herself look over the newcomer. Whoever he was, he had awakened the old man to a frenzy. She could barely see him as he zipped from one wasp to another. It was impressive to see someone move quite so quickly. She might need to talk to him. It was a skill she might want for her own at some point. Such speed. The newcomer snagged her attention as the only relatively clean thing in a circle of absolute chaos. The brief look she cast over him made her think of a butler. Was that a thing? Mage-butlers? She had no idea. The problem however looked to be well in hand. Now to decide what to do.

    She could just leave now and never look back. That was what she felt would bring the least heartache after how Ruvel had treated her. Yet...Masha looked around the town. It was damaged from all the magic that had been flung around. Not to mention the damage the hordes had done to everything. There was a twinge in her breast. A desire to help out these people so much less fortunate than herself. She had never had such a twinge before. Should she give into it? Masha rubbed the hidden dark mage symbol on her breast. Was being a dark mage really what she wanted? She had never known anything else, never wanted to. Not until Ruvel. He had given her a glimpse of something more. Something better. Something she wanted more than anything.

    Someone cried out from under a pile of rubble. That sealed Masha's decision. She marched over, putting her enormous strength to work. The building piece tested even her strength but she managed to lift it enough to let the trapped people out. It felt good, hearing their thanks as they climbed out into the sun. She liked it quite a lot. It was time for a change. Savage Skull might have raised her but every bird had to leave the nest. Masha could only hope that she would find somewhere that would fill the empty ache within her chest.

    For a brief moment, merely a few milliseconds, the homunculus thought he may have killed one of the aces of the guild and trading company. The burnt body would lay upon the ground where it had fallen, smoke rising up from crisped flesh and burnt clothing before he noticed the wounds beginning to close on themselves. Interesting, but not something to bring up at the current time. He did not want to have to try and explain how he had managed to kill one of the guild leaders while they were under siege. That would cause questions in loyalty, unwanted questions that would cause the being to become quite aggressive even if he wanted to remain passive with this group for some time. There were things he was dealing with in his personal life that he wished to finish off before he began to grow outward. That meant his creators and them still living was needed to be taken care of before he began to show his true powers outward. Soon all would get to be with or against him, and soon there would be no middle ground like there currently was. He would be the top, or the top would topple until there was no one left above him. Only the gods could stop him, but he was anathema and only the darkest of gods would be able to come near him. Why would they stop him though? He would surely bring despair, bloodshed, war, and a multitude of other sins through others in his wake. He would adapt, and others would work with him for safety if they were smart in that aspect.

    It seemed that Adapt's words struck one of the golden strings that controlled whatever power Johann managed to keep in check as he did his usual business for the guild. Rasparov's own words would be lightly repeated before the man nodded at the butler and proceeded to seemingly change before his eyes. The increased senses he had detected the smell of a demon, and it was quite obvious where it was coming from. It was becoming increasingly clear that this guild had a lot of dark secrets within its halls, and even more within each being that played a more active part in the guild. Rasparov, now a known protector of Ruvel and many of the other members of the company, was an abomination in the eyes of man and god. Ruvel had something along the same lines as well as his summons. What did Johann have hidden that would be brought to light? Would he have to put an end to him? Or could he come to know him better and get himself the upper hand, or even put himself into a mutual suicide clause like he had with Ruvel and his summoned allies?

    The being masquerading as a man would kill a few stragglers as he watched Johann tear through wasps at inhuman speed before he clearly spent the rest of the stamina his body would allow him to use. He would tell Rasparov that the rest was his, even though that was clear enough at this point. Not that there was a whole lot left when the majority of what was roaming around began to kill themselves. With the goblins committing mass homicide on themselves, Adapt simply did his basic clear of straggling wasps and other pests until there were none left to find using all of the senses he had at his disposal. While others would return to seek medical attention, or try and help those that cried out for help from everywhere around them, Rasparov would dust off his clothing before he sheathed his blades and went back to find Ruvel again. A proper bow would be made before he smiled at the other creature, his eyes flickering with the slightest hint of evil as he began to speak. "It seems that the invasion and siege has been fought off, Young Master. Shall we figure out the root of this problem so that we can stomp them out like the bugs they sent against us? I will enjoy crushing their throats with my boots and watching their soul exit their body to meet those that would rather all of mine instead." The calm words would be whispered so that only Ruvel could hear, all others behind him so that none could read his lips. They had been successful here today, but they had to make sure nothing like this could happen again or they would face extinction a lot sooner than they wished to.
