Guy seemed to want to deal with the door, so Riia would happily let him! She kept out a sharp eye for any threatening... objects, essentially, as he approached. While it was nice that he wanted to handle this possible trap, she felt a bit anxious allowing their charge to just go up and fiddle with it. Thankfully, after a few minutes of examining the circular relief and the vines, he made a noise of satisfaction and pushed it firmly open. Taking up the rear, the fairy trotted through after Renji. She briefly made eye contact with the guy (not Guy, but the other one!) and gave him a reassuring smile before trailing in his wake. Aww, it was nice of him to check up on her! They were buddies on this mission, after all. As the group made their way inside the room, she directed her eyes up at the ceiling, marveling at its height. Even though the area was rather dusty, she could still appreciate how spacious it was! For a set of ancient ruins, there wasn't that much claustrophobia happening here. The tunnels had been rather bad, admittedly, but... oh! Riia stumbled over something on the floor. Her gaze swung back to her feet, and she blinked confusedly at the shards littering the ground. Whatever she had tripped over was broken up into little pieces now. Shrugging, the fairy let out a yawn before taking in a deep breath. She was starting to get sleepy. Inadvertently, when she breathed the air back in, it took a lot of the darkness of the surrounding area with it.
Feeling energized by the sudden influx of magic, Riia blinked in amazement before she stretched her arms behind her back and then over her head. "That's great!" She chirped before noticing that her fellow comrades had stopped moving for the most part. Sure, everyone was still drifting around the room, but it appeared all of their focuses had gravitated to different parts. Guy was talking about... something prismatic, which was neat, even though Riia didn't have the patience to listen right now! Instead, she paid more attention to when Renji spoke; he seemed to be rather unnerved. The fairy thought she heard something about trespassers, but she ended up shrugging. If it were important, he would have spoken more loudly; it wasn't good to read too much into other peoples' mutterings.
Humming to herself, Riia began to step closer to the center of the room, where there was a rather beaten up shield that still shone with a certain inner light. Curious, she was about to approach when a sudden movement in her peripheral vision stole her attention. Blinking rapidly, the girl stared as the statue holding the shield began to move, opening its arms. "Whoa, it's alive!" She reeled back, but after a moment, nothing more happened. Tentatively, the fairy took a look at her companions and started suddenly when she noticed Guy was about to cathc the shield. Wait, hadn't it already fallen... oh, it was hovering in the air. That was creepy. Biting her lip, Riia felt a sudden flow of magic around them as the rest of the shadows in the chamber dispersed under the shining light of the shield. Pretty cool. Now, Guy was speaking, but, unfortunately, she was unable to give him a clear response. "Hear what?" The fairy frowned, before realizing that Renji had said the exact same thing. "Twins!" She sang before her amusement began to fade upon realizing Guy... didn't seem to be feeling right. Being able to hear voices nobody else could was not usually the best thing, especially in an area of magic. "Are you being lured by a demon?" Riia offered a possible explanation. As a former creature of the underworld herself, she knew the many temptations they used.
Suddenly, Renji left her side, heading in a dashing pace towards Guy in the center of the room. The female mage stood still, quirking her eyebrow at the two of them. She wasn't sure why the dude didn't want him to touch the shield, since it was so shiny and pretty... unless, could it have been related to the voices? Shrugging, Riia was about to brush off the other mage's concerns when suddenly the skeletons on the sides of the room came to life. "Ohh boy, no no," she shot a soft pink and blue stream of glittering magic at the nearest skellie, which recoiled before the gaps in its bones were sealed shut with tightly packed, inelastic candy floss. The strands wrapped around its form until it was sealed in a cocoon of cotton candy, unable to move or be seen. From there on, her magic would slowly drain out the skeleton's own innate life force, or whatever pseudo sentience it had been granted by the powers that activated it. That still left, um, a lot of skeletons, though. Deciding she needed to try a different approach, Riia conjured a thinly woven net, well, almost a blanket, really, of sugary magic that she threw over part of the horde. Binding that bunch to the wall then coating it in several more layers of magic, she managed to get some more under control. Taking a small breather to check in on their buddy Guy Stratus, Riia had to look twice when she realized he had been enveloped by some kind of red light. Squinting into it did nothing but almost blind her, leaving the fairy with red blind spots in her vision.
She eventually gave up on making out his form and instead went back to work on the skeletons. With Renji, it wasn't that bad, and from what she could tell, there weren't too many tricks involved. At one point, they began to exhale some kind of yucky mist that made her lungs burn, but the girl simply held her breath for the rest of the fight. Technically, she didn't need to breathe, it was just a force of habit. "Need a mask?" Offering a face mask woven out of cotton candy and instilled with purifying magic, she would just briefly double check to see if Renji had his own way of handling the annoying gas. Then the mage would carry on, blasting the skeletons with magic and wrapping them up neatly into cotton candy packages. Hopefully water wouldn't drip down here any time soon, or bugs wouldn't get in and eat up the sugar, freeing the skeletons. Well, that was a problem for future adventurers, anyway! Finally, when it would seem like the revenants were no longer an enormous threat, Riia returned here gaze to the center of the room. Something strange was happening; the red light was gone, along with Guy. Instead, both had been replaced by some kind of weird red statue. It looked to be rather metallic, and... oh, wait, the shield was on the back of the statue, and there was a red spear in its hand. Maybe Guy had turned into the statue. There were tales, as far as she knew, of people who had touched the wrong thing and been turned to stone or cement or ice or some other kind of not-human-flesh element. Wincing, Riia hoped that hadn't been the case here.
Just then, the statue flew into the nearest skeleton, much to Riia's surprise. So it wasn't an inanimate sort of deal, then! Happy that Guy (at least, she assumed it was some form of him) was not dead yet, the fairy tucked a strand of hair behind her ear and went on fighting. Even though she had paused because they were no longer overwhelming in numbers, there were still plenty left to deal with. By the time they were all gone, she was panting, and surely, Renji was probably also feeling pretty tuckered out. "This was a great workout!" The fairy sang, before kicking one of the un reanimated revenants in the knee. Now that the battle was done, the red statue finally dissolved... to reveal a person underneath! It was Guy! Relief was obvious on Riia's face as she rushed over to their client slash comrade. "I... I'm the Red Prism Knight now," he said, and the girl cocked her head at him quizzically. She had no clue what that was. But as long as he was doing okay (he looked rather enthusiastic about the entire ordeal, actually) she had no complaints. "Renji, you good?" If everyone was well and unharmed, this mission seemed like it could be counted as a success and they could leave!
