Of all the activities that could encompass a sunny, Wednesday afternoon, Aven never would have imagined running full tilt from a stark naked Wizard to be one of them. He'd been minding his own business, even actively suppressing his magical aura in order not to bother the city folk of Magnolia. Headed toward his favorite Cafe for a leisurely lunch, to cool off from recent events, his plans were suddenly broken to pieces by a commotion up ahead. Murmurs in the crowd grew louder and more frantic, as a figure broke through, pointing triumphantly at him, like a lion boasting over it's latest kill: "FIGHT ME!"
Aven was, in fact, stunned for a good ten seconds, trying to process the barest fraction of what was going on. Who was this woman? Why did she want to fight? Had he done something to anger her in the past? His sense returned slowly, as his eyes flitted around the scene, noticing several issues with this state of affairs. The first, and possibly most limiting, was that they were in public, something that would be a non-issue if not for the second problem: the woman was completely stark naked, save a few shreds of black energy that wafted around her most sensitive areas. The third issue, of course was a bit more personal.
An Alveron never backs down from a challenge.
...Is what he would've liked to say, except it wasn't just his honor and pride on the line, seeing as the woman was bearing her entire honor and both of her 'prides' in full few of the entire city square. It was indecent, and his sensibilities as a Noble held equal precedent in this kind of situation. Therefore, he had only one recourse: he'd accept her challenge, and in the process of the fight...
... He'd put clothes on her.
She seemed the rash type, judging by essentially everything he'd seen thus far, so he took the goading approach. Thank the heavens for his recent encounter with Lilith: if this had been his first time seeing a woman naked, he might actually have fainted! He'd be sure to thank her, the next time they met up; maybe, with another date? "Fine, but you'll have to catch me, first." With a quick spin, he bolted into a nearby alleyway, in the direction of Magnolia's outer wall. Aven's Dark Energy wasn't the kind of power to be used around destructible buildings, and he hadn't a clue what the naked woman's abilities were; from a brief sensory sweep, however, he didn't sense any extraordinary magical presences nearby. Either the woman was hiding her strength, which was very possible, or she was extremely confident.
