Slowly but surely with every passing moment this excursion to the moon was proving to be worth the effort put into the journey thus far. While the Rakshasa of Gluttony had expected some kind of opposition,he hadn't expected to encounter any insects that could keep up with his base state. As such with each clash of Zar'roc against the weapons of Chiyoki the silver haired demon was diving deeper and deeper into the sea that was excitement and blood-lust. How could he not? Every strike made was met with another. If either he or his female opponent slipped up even the slightest that moment could become the deciding factor in their battle. When Zar'roc finally
tasted flesh for the first time, as Chiyoki flipped away to put some distance between the two, Bid'Daum's eyes seemed to sharpen, a dangerous gleam entering them.
Before his foe could even utilize the distance she had created silver hair whipped back in the wind as the pale demon launched himself at her. Closing the distance Zar'roc arced through the air intent on cleaving Chiyoki in two, only to be stopped when her free hand moved to intercept the blade before a powerful shield was formed by a massive surge of the girls energy. The resulting impact would have likely heavily damage a weaker foe, but in this particular case Chiyoki was merely sent sailing into the air, flipping end over end, before hitting the ground with a dull thud. Before the girl could even regain her bearings the hell demon pressed his advantage, closing the gap rapidly before striking out once again.
Unfortunately for the silver haired male he had forgotten one key thing in his enjoyment of his clash with his female foe, there was a second opponent to be fought. Because of this it had been easy, so to speak, for Izayoi to intercept the oncoming assault that was sent Chiyoki's way. Much like the slashes emitted from Zar'roc earlier the air pressure created from his Onibi
strikes was simply dispersed by whatever abilities the boy possessed. Growling in frustration the hell demon was quick to roar out in anger, "You pests don't get it! Your silly tricks won't save you!"
As he spoke the demon tore a large hunk of rock from the moon before launching it towards his opponents.
While the rock was sailing through the air, and his foes avoiding said rock, Bid'Daum was already making his next move. Demonic energy spread further throughout the sector as he began tainting the moon with it via Za Koa's Influence
. Furthermore he was now tapping into the Knowledge of Environment
ability of Za Koa, further enhancing his senses and knowledge of the area. Because of this Bid'Daum was more or less prepared when Izayoi launched his first attack, the silver eyes of the demon almost missing it due to its minuscule size and black coloration. As the black kernel closed in two things would occur, the first being the activation of Akuma Kyodo
, doubling his defensive capabilities. The second would be Zar'roc lashing out at the tiny attack, impacting it at its moment of detonation, a terrible idea in hindsight. The result of this would be a large explosion obstructing his view as Zar'roc was sent reeling to the side, his right arm missing the sleeve of his robe up to the shoulder, revealing burns and bruising.
Before Bid'Daum could even contemplate how to respond a second explosion would detonate directly in-front of him, furthering the cloud of dust and debris that obstructed the battlefield. Meanwhile the ground beneath the demon's feet could be felt trembling as the conflicts in other sectors intensified, some even being destroyed. As the dust finally died down the snarling visage of the hell demon would be revealed, his silver eyes alight with rage. When his lower torso was revealed it would be seen that the lower half of his robe was barely intact, most of it torn, shredded, and burnt by the explosion. His legs, due to the activation of Akuma Kyodo before hand, had escape serious injury, sporting burns, bruising, and some decent lacerations. It wouldn't be enough to stop him, but the pain would be annoying for until healed.
Suddenly the hell demon felt something VERY
wrong. Something his demon blood didn't like. Already it roared for him to leave before whatever it was arrived. But it was too late. As if punched directly in the gut Bid'Daum lurched forward as a wave of angelic energy washed over the sector. The energy of Cirno Iramasha immediately making the rakshasa physically ill. Before he could further react to the angelic energy a shout from Chiyoki would force the demon to focus his silver eyes upon the girl only to see her beginning her own assault upon him. With another blast of energy being sent his way the demon once again growled in frustration before simply side-stepping this first attack before responding with one of his own. Quickly slicing his hand the silver haired male called the darkness around to his hand, mixing it with the blood flowing upon it. Once the Black Inferno Blast
was formed it was sent hurtling in Chiyoki's direction. On its course his attack met a second launched by his female opponent resulting in an explosion going off between the two.
When a third was sent his way the hell demon would roar in frustration. Raising his right foot Bid'Daum quickly stomped on the ground at his feet, kicking up a shower of rock before him in hopes of prematurely detonating the blast. From there the demon would kick off the ground, leaping to the right several feet to ensure that the attack would miss him. Upon landing the voice of the rakshasa rang out through the sector again, "ENOUGH OF THESE PETTY ATTACKS!"
With that outburst over, and Chiyoki suddenly vanishing from her spot, Bid'Daum focused on the battle before him once again. Finding her energy signature the pale beast would spin on the spot, turning to face Chiyoki as she raised her 'empty' hand into the air. Suddenly the air current she had been holding split down the middle, a brilliant golden light emitting from it as it did so. In that one moment Bid'Daum knew that the conflict for this sector had just entered an entirely new level. Before he could contemplate further upon such a thing the hell demon felt the sudden exponential buildup of Chiyoki's energy.
All other conflict seemed to cease in the mind of Bid'Daum, his only focus now being Chiyoki and whatever she was about to unleash. Deciding on his own game plan the demon knew he had but a single option. Doing whatever it took to survive. Because of this the next thing that would occur was something the rakshasa hadn't planned on revealing in this fight. Alas his hand had been forced.
In the same moment that Chiyoki's energy would build up Bid'Daum's own would suddenly roar into existence as his voice calmly reached out into the sector.
""Sabhee ka Bhakshak"
With those words uttered the ground around the hell demon would give way, his demonic energy dying itself a mixture of reds, blacks, burgundies, and silvers. Towering within the inferno of demonic energy a three eyed visage could be seen before vanishing. The build up of energy on both sides would continue for but a fraction of a moment before all hell would break loose. Before the storm of energy surrounding Bid'Daum could even die down Chiyoki unleashed the attack she had built up. As the girl screamed out the name of her attack, her arm falling towards the ground as she did so, a single massive clawed arm would pierce the veil of energy hiding Bid'Daum from view. Within its clawed grasp a massive blade, if one could call it that, was held pointing toward the ground.
As the veil began to give way Chiyoki's attack would impact the torrent of demonic energy, the two forces clashing for a brief moment in time before a titanic explosion would shake the sector. The quaking of the moon grew more intense as the explosion expanded, the energy fueling Chiyoki's attack and Bid'Daum's unseen transformation serving as fuel for the explosion. Flames would roar into existence, buildings would be whipped from the field of battle completely, any debris not annihilated by the blast would rocket in every direction as the shock-wave hurtled through the sector, and any neighbouring areas.
When the explosion would finally die down and the dust would settle it would reveal not only a massive debris lined crater, but a single hulking form standing in the center. Standing at twelve feet in height the towering form belonged to a single demonic entity. Bid'Daum. Adorning the males massive form was, now heavily damaged, exoskeletal armor. It appeared to have covered most of his body, and even made up apart of his visage, forming a skull like shape and the two massive horns upon his head. While the exoskeleton appear to be a dark lilac in color, the 'flesh', so to speak, of his face was a lighter rose-pink of sorts. Normally the demonic entity would have appeared more knight-like, but given that his armor, and body had been damage, such an appearance was not what one would see today. From Bid'Daum's back a set of massive wings slowly folded over his shoulders, creating a cloaked appearance.
Dropping what now appeared to be a damage slab of metal, his blade which had been more or less destroyed in the blast despite his own demonic energy taking the brunt of it, the demonic form began taking massive steps towards the outer edge of the crater. Behind the demon a trail of demonic blood, and exoskeletal fragments followed. As he walked three glowing green eyes focused upon his target. There no longer were words to be spoken. He no longer cared what either foe had to say. All that mattered now was victory and satisfying the hunger that raged within his soul. Now
Chiyoki and Izayoi truely
faced a demon. And this demon wouldn't stop until every soul upon the moon was his to consume.
