Indeed, these people understood fear. Their thoughts and movements shaken to their core, about to give up and surrender to their demands. Leo unmoved by this, so much so that not even a smirk came out from him. Not the he was confident that the plan was flawless, but because he didn't care even if it did fail. Because if it did, then there will be blood for he cared not for these people's lives. They have signed their deaths when they, by choice, followed the path of evil. Evil, which is clearly distinguishable from darkness, cannot be allowed to persevere. Leo had wandered the land to purge the evil within him and he will do the same for his country, his home, and his family. Which is why he felt a rush when the enemies refused to lay down their arms and be confident in their numbers, just because of one idiot at the back who foolishly attempted to inspire her comrades and raise their morale. Brave, but foolish. Perhaps this woman had grown not to be intimidated by simple men in her face growing up, an assumption based on another encounter in his wandering years where two women persuaded Leo to indulge in the evil within him. Fortunately for him, and all of Earthland even, he did not give in. This is why Leo was still ready to go on the offensive, as he had seen this before.
When the woman's words convinced the others into their deaths, Leo's left hand, which was his dominant hand, moved a few inches from behind him as he was getting ready to send one of his weapons that he had summoned to fly towards two more, and hold the others with his hands. There had already been a mental picture on how Leo will effectively deal with them all as quickly as possible, for at this point, fueled by inspiring words, they are deadly and will not back down and would only hinder the progress of their investigation. Leo was set, ready to move at a moment's notice, ready to let his left hand completely loose, awaiting only the word from his partner and the primary in this investigation, who was about to make his move as well. He eagerly awaited his command.
Yet the command given was not the one Leo was anticipating, it was different but it was one he equally welcomed for he believed that now, he was in for a treat. For Mythal waved his hand, gesturing that Leo should stand down for this one and stepped forward a few feet from him, which Leo counted to be four. This display of them going at them one at a time only emboldened their enemies further, or they got pissed off, believing that Leo and Myhtal were underestimating their strength, and Leo was leaning on the latter, he recognized a pissed off face anywhere.
So it was that the evil murderers unleashed their spells upon Mythal that were born of darkness. And after seeing Mythal absorb darkness magic earlier, Leo couldn't wait to see the look on their faces when he would absorb their attacks. The shock in their faces were priceless. The faces Leo see on them now might have been a better look compared to more fear they would feel while Leo was cutting them down with relative ease. The feeling of whatever you do, it would be for naught because the very person in front of you can devour your spells as if they were nothing. Something he had seen over the years, and yet, never gets old.
As Leo simply watched impressed with all that he has been witnessing thus far mostly because unlike other Slayers Leo has seen who can only absorb magic of their element through their mouths, unlike Mythal who seem to be absorbing the element from anywhere on his body which he thought to look more awesome, intimidating, and efficient. But now came the main event of his demonstration. The part where the Darkness Slayer used his magic. Thus, Leo was shown how powerful Mythal was, that with just mere hand movement, dark portals appeared all around the cultists. And from these portals appeared tentacles that gave all the remaining 12 a good thrashing. And Leo had to admit, he was happy to just stand back and enjoy the show for it was so much better that what Leo could have ever done.
After the greatest thrashing Leo has witnessed in his life, Mythal explained that what he had was God Slaying to which Leo simply nodded, impressed.
Now that their guests are in a more cooperative mood, Mythal proceeded to question one of them, pinning one against the wall while Leo stood over all the knocked down, threatening them with his three weapons, intimidating them once more, taking the role of what they call a bad cop, who'd definitely kill these people if it weren't for his partner not letting him. Each individual looked upon Leo trying to think of who he was, wondering if they have seen him before. Leo didn't like their prying and so he opted to let one of his weapons float so he can put his hood back on.
After a few moments, they had the information they required and Leo lead the way towards the tunnel that was the way towards their so called "dark savior". At the mouth of the tunnel, Leo's family crest stung again, indicative that there are on the right track and this wasn't a trap. He also had no cause to think it was a trap. A tunnel this narrow, even members would accidentally trip on traps on it. He then looked over Mythal who had alerted who had called Rune Knights over to take the injured into custody. Leo might think them far gone for choosing a path such as this, he was but a guest here. And if the dungeons could rehabilitate them somehow, then he would let them be. Besides, it's not like Leo can't go after them again if they choose to continue down their evil path.
"I agree, let us proceed with caution. There's no one here and yet there's thing stinging feeling. A dark presence must be at the other side. Darker than these underlings." he replied, eager for what challenges lie ahead. But he was confident with his and Mythal's abilities. Between his Dark God Slaying powers and his weapons, Leo would say the odds are about even. What more if Lux was thrown into the mix? He may have not done much yet but with the way he is approaching this matter, he could have more up his sleeve. And with that, Leo moved ahead into the tunnel, while sheathing his weapons with his telekinetic link with them, putting the hammer and saber behind him in a cross while the katana was on his left hip.
