The other Company employee exchanged pleasantries with Perry, while adding a bunch of other things, like how his magic worked and whatnot. It felt like a bit of an information dump that Perry had never asked for, but he reckoned that he knew a bit more about the guy without pressing him further. The young man took a mental note of what Haraka shared for future purposes. After Perry said that he wasn't a fan of the games, Haraka suggested some different ones, but that wasn't Perry's issue with them. It was mostly about the simple fact that he could just snatch one of the prizes, instead of trying to win a most definitely rigged game. That was if there was no lady to impress present, of course.
After Perry asked whether Haraka had a similar feeling to his, the answer was surprisingly positive. Though kind of weird. Perry didn't even want to know what the other man meant by 'his baby William'. The thief wanted to reply to the man's question, but that was abruptly cut short, as a fireball made a swift appearance, damaging the goods that Haraka had with him. Things went blurry after that.
Somebody was going to yell something about summer, but the crowd had quickly fallen into panic. The sudden shift of the atmosphere took Perry by surprise, but that lasted for only a few moments before he composed himself. Haraka had sprouted wings and a tail and started to essentially go ham at the attackers. Perry couldn't even get a proper look, before Haraka and the attackers disappeared from his line of sight. "Damn." He muttered under his breath. As if it wasn't enough, Nova was still nowhere to be seen.
The mage saw some commotion up ahead, mixed with ice that probably belonged to Haraka. At least Perry now knew that there was something lurking around. But those that were locked in combat with his fellow employee were not the only ones that were present. The thief's sight was momentarily impaired by a sudden flash of light, as two womanly figures appeared. Perry took a few steps back, bumping into somebody and briefly lost his balance, though he managed to stay on his feet. After his sight cleared up, Perry noticed that the source of the blinding flash were indeed womanly figures, but they appeared to be made of pure light. And they seemed to have it out for him.
A ball of light was sent his way by one of them and the thief's reflexes kicked in, getting him out of harm's way. Though he was sure that the execution would've been better had he not been feeling tired. Before the elementals could strike again, the mage would close the gap and kick one of them with void imbued leg, while quickly following up the attack by setting off a void explosion in front of him. That set off even more panic, making Perry roll his eyes. He was hoping that nobody would get into his way. Unintentional casualties would be quite unfortunate, that was for sure. Thankfully, the elemental that was on the receiving end of both the blast and kick disappeared into sparkles, but the other one was still alive.
The elemental saw the opening and decided to capitalise on it, by punching Perry with its light-infused fist. The mage got staggered a bit, as the light seared him a little bit and he took a step back. He had an affinity for shadows and darkness, after all, so the light was his natural weakness. Perry grit his teeth as his leg lunged out again, taking out the second elemental. As the specks of light dissipated, the thief sighed a sigh of relief. He got rid of the two elementals that had it out for him, all while there was a panicked crowd around him.
But the relief didn't last long. As if on cue, a shimmering yellow portal ripped open in the sky and a creature dropped out of it. A combination of a man and beast landed heavily onto the pavement. "Summer will be eternal!" He would yell out as people ran out of his way. Summer being eternal was among the last of things that Perry would ever wish for. It felt like the man-beast could read his thoughts, as Perry was pretty sure that his gaze stopped on him. Or maybe he just looked like natural mischief that could disrupt his plans. Though that was going to be excatly what he was going to do.
Perry, however, was taken by immense surprise, as the creature that had fallen out of the portal just sprinted ahead, aiming straight at him. His feet scrambled to finally move, but he was more so prepared for a very painful impact. However, somebody else saved his hide. The hairy man-beast was stopped dead in its tracks. Long black hands were holding onto it, keeping it in place. Perry's gaze immediately moved to the side and saw his companion, Nova. "You look like you could use some help!" A shout rang in Perry's head and he smirked in return. "Yeah, you got me there." The thief would laugh, as he heard his name being called. Haraka was probably looking for him. "Right over here! We got a bit of a situation on our hands!" The mage would yell, hoping that his fellow employee would follow the source of the voice. "Let go of me!" The portal beast would growl as he struggled to get free from Nova's tight grasp. To add fire to an already growing flame, Perry would conjure a ball of flaming void, that he then threw at the being, letting void burn slowly damage the creature. That only got more growling and more struggling as a response.
