Still floating a bit below the other two combatants, Kai could do little but watch through hazy vision as they continued to deal blows to each other capable of rocking the world around their small frames which belied the power bubbling at the surface. Fighting against odds which seemed not just stacked against him, but in a whole other universe, were not really new to Kai. After all, Wareyasui Moroi was able to manhandle the Vanguardian and his allies with little trouble. But something about this fight was different. It wasn't just him putting his life on the line for others, nay it was far bigger than that. Today, Kai was fighting not just for justice, but for goodness on the grandest of scales. Stopping Inami here could prevent numerous tragedies and destruction, and strike a blow against the supposed 'chaos' she claimed to represent. Even for someone as beaten, battered, and bruised as Kai, these reasons were enough to keep him up and on his feet, unflinching against the terror he stood against.
As the words about making a choice between victory or her ally escaped Inami's lips, Kai couldn't help but feel slight pangs of resentment about her question. Even after everything he'd witnessed and all the damage his body endured thus far, the Jade Dragon refused to back down. "I'm not done yet..."
Even just saying a few words caused twangs of pain to ring throughout his body as Nizhuan and Inami struck shattering blows against each other. The former's resilience was incredible, while the latter's tenacity continued to display itself as overwhelming. Kai wasn't sure if they were an even match and had no clue what abilities or powers they still hid up their sleeves, but one thing was clear: In any other situation, neither of them should have even registered Kai's existence in this war. Yet, whether it was through their own beliefs or doubts, or perhaps a result of his own determination and words, Kai was a part of this battle. As such, he couldn't call it quits. Not until he could do nothing else.
As the bright plum energy encapsulated Kai's entire being, a warmness spread through his limbs and resonated in his mind akin to his own flames. The man's vision became clearer and clearer as his attention was drawn to his arms and hands, staring in surprise as the wounds which just a moment ago coated them began to shrink and disappear. Even the strain he felt from breathing began fading, washing away all doubts still left in his mind with it. This Nizhuan character, though far mightier than he, clearly didn't see him as just an obstacle or bother. She saw something in him, something worth saving
. Clenching his fists tightly, Kai's flaming jade gaze once again set on the Demon Queen responsible for all this destruction and loss of life. So long as he drew breath, so long as Nizhuan would go out of her way for him, Kai would not fall. "Sacrifice me...? What did I say?! I said you [b]WILL NOT WIN HERE!"
Though not a full resurrection of his strength, Kai once again felt stable and healthy enough to use his Stances. However, using either of his Rank 2's would be difficult still, so he went with a classic. From a small body of fire emerged a jade encrusted bow in the man's hands, which was quickly aimed directly for Inami's figure above him. Wanting to at the very least distract the Demon, Kai aimed to create an opening for his ally's attacks. Before Nizhuan's most recent attack could potentially land, Kai charged and fired a two-pronged arrow enveloped in a large inferno of his green flames. Due to the amount of fire and strength put into the arrow, it screamed through the air like a raptor rocketing toward its prey. This arrow would reach Inami's location ever-so-slightly before Nizhuan's attack, and would explode into a ten meter wide blast of fire hopefully able to increase the latter's chance of success against this embodiment of evil they both battled against. When his newfound ally spoke about tipping the scales, Kai nodded his head with fierce determination still in his eyes. Inami Asthavon would regret coming to Sirsa today.

Deity Of Lawlessness
Chaos . . .Order. . when did it become that the scales had been tipped so far? As twin blows shattered themselves into inami’s body, she had felt not pain, but rather than pain she felt something that she had not felt in a very long time. Yes, as blackened blood splattered from inami’s body and it dissipated like smoke in the air. As inami’s hand pressed against the bloodied mess that adorned her face, and the pain that caressed her being there would be an odd. . almost symbolic shift in the queen of brutes. This being that was on a warpath. The hair that had been two toned for so long had hints of white introduced in it. Call it the mixing of aura’s but as the ashtavons emerald gaze sweeped sleepily over the chaos that had taken place flecks of clarity had already begun to expand through her mind.
It was very much like a haze had been lifted from the queen's mind and yet . . she was very much the same as she had been previously. As the blood soon dried from the queens face, as the darkness that still bubbled forth from her lips would soon be tinged with oorja energies. It would be as if Nizhuan’s energy had done much more than right the balance that lingered within Inami’s chaotic psyche. As her energy eclipsed it’s previous peak her eyes glanced down at the duo on the ground, her green eyes . . they held clarity and yet why was it that the ground around her would begin to warp. Why was it the dimension seemed like it was being shaken apart by some sort of turbulence in the mile surrounding the queen of chaya nation?
Even now, with Inami’s reserves having been diminished by nizhuan’s raw energies she still had enough to do something absolutely devastating to the realm around them. The very ground would shake, and the heavens would tremble as the laws of the world seemed to bare themselves and prostrate before the queen of chaya nation. Even as her essence was being altered, something primal had been awoken in her to, her voice would echo outwards. ”I wonder, is it because of chaos that subjugation exists. . or is it because subjugation exists that chaos runs rampant?”
As inami’s words bore fruit it would begin. The laws that governed the world. Call them truths, call them concepts. As the concept of subjugation ruled over this space, as it sought to overwrite the chaos that was present. Inami’s hand would reach out and grasp that elusive concept as her entire body truly shone like a fallen deity. In that moment inami would truly look like the sun, her power overwhelming, enough that anything within inami’s direct vicinity up to a thousand feet from her in all directions would simply be vaporized under the truest brunt of her power. The aftershocks would expand outwards passing past the jade dragon and the hell-beast of order as the queen looked down at both of them.
As inami’s hand pulled the very sky seemed to distort, the color’s dissipating to a monotone as it would seem like inami had grasped some sort of strand. A strand that had materialized from the existence around them. The concept of subjugation was derived from the larger law of “order”. Balance within order and chaos existed within all things, but what happened when one of those fundamental concepts was removed? Soon the very realm would tremble as inami expended a truly heinous amount of energy and formed a spear, a spear that would expand outwards to the better back-end of a mile.
In this spear she had severed the laws of order, the very realm would warp around it’s magnificence as everything seemed to pale in the face of it. Inami’s own silver hair would ripple out luminously as she looked at the subjugation dave before her. Her lips curved into the faintest of smiles as her hand moved forward and the entirety of that spear compressed.
It would vanish, and appear before the subjugation dave as if it had teleported there, or maybe had existed there all together. However if she moved there would be very little doubt that the power of this attack would cause extensive damage to the jade dragon. Now if Nizhuan just took the blow though, the spear wouldn’t affect her on the physical level really, all it would do would smash a hole into her as it would hammer into the ground behind her. However on a metaphysical level it would shatter and diminish the connection that Nizhuan had with order, erasing part of the connection she had with her law and causing her to become inbalanced and unstable.
In short, it would cause a massive amount of damage to her on a metaphysical level, to the point it might even be possible that her energy reserves would sharply plummet as a result. A soft sigh leaving Inami’s lips as the massive amount of energy expanded outwards afterwards in a dome, dissipating before she had glanced up at the sky above. She already felt the connection to this land, and as her hand slowly raised the earth would begin to meld to her will, the burning wreckage of the city would begin to mend, the massive fires would dissipate. To those who survived the chaos would seem to be over for now. . atleast. As inami spoke once more to the probably fairly injured nizhuan. Her voice was as clear as it had been in a very long time, and maybe she might find reason in the hell beast of subjugations wish. ”..Then tell me Nizhuan, what would you have me do?”

"No sacrifice on your part is needed. We both will leave here alive."
Artist: N/A - Song: My Hero Academia - Word Count: N/A
It didn't matter how banged up or injured the two may exit this place, Nizhuan did not have thought of being here on her to-do list. If anything, it seemed as if the tables were beginning to become balanced in the way that The Devil could sense the mindscape of The Chaya Queen starting to shift, alter and morph into something between order and chaos. Which, in a sense, is something she strived for within herself, this realm and in others to prevent it all from crumbling into the abyss of utter and unrestrained chaos.
Yes, there were still raising disturbances screaming in the realm around them that Nizhuan could feel, but she was not phased by the screams of the heavens roaring out all around her. As far as she was concerned, the determination in her own soul was just as mighty as the drastic change in form that the external world around herself took as it became submerged in these two constructs of law and disorder.
Letting her human partner take the lead, Nizhuan held her ground and uttered this out to Inami in response to her insights on subjugation:"Chaos and subjugation are one in the same. It is why both I and the Hell Demon I serve are the same creatures."
With a soft exhale of breathe, a plum burst of energy bled out of the essence of Nizhuan as she stared down the now emerald eyed Inami:"And why I only desire it to be regulated, not eradicated."
Then, in one instance of rash thought, Nizhuan herself indulged in the contents of insanity, leaped forward and took the spear which was heading straight for Kai. The demoness showed no sign of pain, but the squirting of fluid pink blood dripped out of the woman's right shoulder blade as she used her body as a shield. And, indeed, what soon followed was a mass destabilization of her body as she could feel her own inner energies becoming interwoven with the construct of chaos. Yet, that did not scare her. No. The complete entity of her and Liu's being already possessed something just as chaotic as this in them. This feeling of total disorder was not to be feared, but accepted and endured. "You know something? I'm a creature of complete sin. Yet, when I think of the time spent in the realm of the living, it's absurd of me to want to try and do something that is quote-on-quote "heroic", but here I am indulging that chaos when it would make more sense to just abandon that and only think of saving myself...."
Was it the desires of Liu's heart running in it her? The chaos pouring into her body from Inami? The memories that she shared serving the Vastime and all it's crew? Or was it...something else? Nizhuan wasn't quite sure, but in this moment she felt she was on the right path toward making leeway in this clash of disorder and order. So, she pressed forward with a blood-filled laugh:"...all I want is for you to stop with the destruction of this land and our world."
Really, that was it. The changes of power altered rapidly in a realm that thrived off of chaos, power, strength, and brutality. Yet, it was reaching such a critical threshold that her own way of life was becoming endangered. Thus, as an embodiment of this lawful nature, Nizhuan HAD to act or risk losing what she was. "Demons are chaotic beings, and even my own essence thrives on death, but if the chaos reduces our race to absolute zero and our world to dust, what point will it serve?"
And sure, while her power was unstable at the moment, Nizhuan knew she had enough strength left inside of her in order to change the tide of Inami's fight in order to ease the wavelength of unrestrained chaos bleeding in her being as an Asthavon. She had no intentions of entirely sealing it away, but her prowess yielded enough of a bound to her spirit to keep it in check to where she wasn't mindlessly destroying these lands. As the subtle whispers into her consciousness from Nizhuan's subjugating law would ensure this persona change would stay active in Inami. With the sacrifice of her blood, energy and element sought to restrain this hellish nature enough to where she could see a future of herself having composed chaos and order in a singular vessel much like Nizhuan and Liu's own fully complete being when they are united as one. "I'm a creature of hell and I have no interest in the struggle of royal power on the surface world, but..."
Now with these bonds made, Nizhuan ripped out the blade, threw it to the abyss and placed both of her hands on the shoulders of Inami before leaning in close and saying these closing words to cement her pathway to mental victory: "...I'm scared of losing myself if the law of demon world is changed because my essence is tethered to how this realm's structure of power is. So all I want is for you to think more before you act and go about destroying and killing: is that too much to ask for?"

Kai was entirely unperturbed by whatever new peak Inami Asthavon was reaching. He had had just about enough of this endless powering up from the Demon Queen. Apparently she was infinitely strong, or at least acted like it, which didn't bother the Jade Dragon at all. Neither did the supposed conflict between 'order' and 'chaos'. They could throw around whatever phrases they wanted, but neither side had any effect on Kai. His mental fortitude was strong, not something that could be swayed by such vague concepts as these. Instead, he watched as the full power of both his and Nizhuan's attacks struck Inami who apparently didn't react or respond to either, meaning she likely would have taken pretty noticeable damage regardless of her strength. While Nizhuan's abilities were clearly the superior, Kai's own fire was both hot and powerful enough to make ignoring the damage Inami clearly took due to lack of response basically impossible.
He wouldn't be done with his renewed offensive at this point either. His foe's strength, which apparently grew infinitely and continuously "eclipsed" everything revealed so far, didn't frighten Kai in the slightest. Moroi was far more intimidating, and he was basically just a man in a big metal suit. By wrapping himself in his strongest flames, Kai was able to remain healthy through all the big and fanciful explosions and energy waves his opponent felt it necessary to create. He wouldn't allow himself to be beaten so casually by irrelevant attacks after everything that had occurred so far in this battle. His glowing green fire burned bright in the face of the world-ending destruction surrounding him, a testament to the incredible growth both it and Kai himself had gone through over the past year. Even just a few months he would have been blown away, but not today. Not here.
When Nizhuan allowed herself to be struck by Inami's spear-like weapon, Kai at first felt a great deal of worry for his newly-made comrade. However, when she continued to speak as if she was fine his attitude towards the situation changed, rapidly evolving from distress to basically shrugging it off. Yes she had taken a powerful attack directly for him, but considering there wasn't any wavering in her voice and the fact she tore the weapon out of herself proved there wasn't much to fear in terms of her physical health. Due to these reasons, Kai moved positions again so he was to Inami's right while Nizhuan was still directly in front of the demon, giving him a decent vantage point from which he could still target his foe without catching the other individual up in his attacks. This would prove especially useful once Nizhuan moved in close and made physical contact with their mutual enemy, making attacking from his previous spot basically impossible.
Gripping his bow tight, Kai nocked one last jade green arrow and prepared for his absolute final attempt to even scratch Inami since apparently everything he had already tried was easily swatted away. Within this arrow he focused all the energy and life force he could muster from head to toe, filling it with both raw power and incredibly potent fire of the highest degree. This combination would make this last arrow more dangerous than even his Jade Dragon's Roar as he risked potentially lowering his lifespan by pouring in so much of his life and determination. Kai could feel all the power and will empty from his body, slowly leaving it an empty and barely-breathing husk. All the energy Nizhuan had provided was being used to create a single attack possibly capable of drawing this battle to a close.
Every positive emotion, every bit of determination, and every gram of heroism still left in his body now lived within this small and reasonably unassuming arrow. Due to being entirely condensed, the arrow currently nocked in Kai's bow wouldn't seem particularly dangerous to Inami regardless of her sensing abilities. The true power of this weapon was cloaked, hidden from view. It gave off no heat and provided no insight into what Kai had poured into it. Once he felt light-headed and could barely move anymore, the Jade Dragon knew it was time to release his most powerful and determination-filled attack.
While Nizhuan gripped Inami's shoulders, distracting the demon queen just enough, Kai finally let go and loosed his arrow. This arrow would careen through the air far faster than any previously, now radiating heat capable of liquidizing steel and rock alike, until reaching Inami's position less than a second after leaving its initial position. Between the Demon likely underestimating the arrow's strength, due to not being able to sense all the power concentrated within its small body, and being distracted by Nizhuan, it would be very likely the attack would find its mark. Even powerful barriers and defenses would be pierced by this arrow, and due to being fired in Kai's Precision Gear
, it would be incredibly accurate and difficult to dodge as well. If all things went according to plan, the arrow would tear a searing hole horizontally from Inami's right hip to her left, exiting on the opposite side. If even this would be casually swatted away, then that would prove all his actions in this war for Sirsa a waste.
Regardless of the outcome, Kai's consciousness immediately began fading as his body began giving in to both extreme mental and physical exhaustion. The bow in his hands burned away into small wisps of fire before disappearing completely. His glowing verdant eyes glazed over and limbs grew heavy before going completely slack. After momentarily staying standing, the Jade Hero toppled over, whispering "Good luck...Nizhuan..."
before falling unconscious. While laying collapsed on the ground the familiar spirit of Guan Yu appeared standing over him, able to provide one last service before fading away for good. With every bit of his willpower, China's most legendary general was able to create a small dimensional rift using Kai's own fire below his body and drop him through it. This would return the Vanguard Warden to the land of his domain, Earth, finally removing him from the hellscape he'd fought in for seemingly many hours now. It was time for him to rest.
