Usually when an invasion or war is declared, the first responders are people who come from elsewhere to defend whatever is being attacked. This didn't really apply to Jian Yijun, a Chinese youth whom had somehow managed to become a Warden in the Vanguard. The reason he always seemed to manage to be on the front lines of battle is because of his own dumb luck, or in many cases lack thereof. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time seemed to be a specialty of his, explaining how he'd been able to be one of the first people to try fighting off the Monsuta forces in Djibouti a couple weeks ago or in the middle of a demonic war in the Sirsa Kingdom. In both instances Kai wasn't looking for a fight yet managed to get one. The same could be said for today.
Since becoming a Vanguard Warden, one of the organization's supposedly elite commanders dedicated to defending Earth, Kai had been on a sort of introduction tour by traveling to various bases and allied regions to meet those whom also dedicated themselves to a life of protecting others. Though still technically employed by Nidzen Corp., Kai was now dedicating essentially all his time to this new job of his. One of the benefits of becoming a Warden was being able to travel around the globe and meet new people even more often than he'd done under his other employer. Though unlike working in an office and securing business deals, being a Vanguard employee meant putting his life on the line so others wouldn't have to. This aspect of the job would be put to the test today, a reality Kai would quickly acclimate to.
Even from inside a building built specifically to keep out enemies Kai could sense the ocean of energy now washing over the islands of Hawaii. At first it all seemed to come from one source, yet within only a few seconds this changed to not just tens and hundreds, but well over a thousand individual points of energy pouring in from the sky above. Loud sirens immediately began going off, ringing out through all the islands as if a tsunami was coming. Kai knew better, this was no tsunami. It was a horde. Shooting up from the desk he'd been given temporary ownership of, Kai sprinted through the hallways of the Yayjuu's armaments and technology complex until bursting through a security door on the first level and into the shadow-cloaked night.
Though this was clearly an attack, given the death and destruction already accomplished by the Shadowfall forces, Kai figured his enemies would gladly assume control of the valuable Yayjuu assets located deep within Honolulu on O'ahu. Kai closed his eyes tight and focused his senses on figuring out which direction the incoming soldiers were coming from. South. Breaking out into a run again, Kai headed directly toward the danger though not without an interruption by an allied soldier running next to what seemed to be a large pod-like object heading directly toward the building Kai had come from. "What is that for?" "Sir it's an AEGIS, it's meant to protect the arms building." "Alright, get it over there quick. Quick!"
Now back on track, it wasn't long until Kai approached the first demonic Shadowfall soldiers hellbent on slaughter and destruction. The entire situation was giving Kai flashbacks to the battle in Djibouti, the knowledge of not being able to protect everyone still fresh in the Chinese youth's mind. This time I will defend everyone and everything! I can't let these barbarians succeed! Kai was steeled by his determination to succeed where others have failed, where he failed. It was high time Shadowfall suffered a blow they wouldn't quickly recover from. With this in mind Kai summoned his ancestral guandao Erphtal into the grasp of his right hand, his fingers wrapped tightly around the weapon's metal shank and prepared to do battle yet again.
The first demon Kai met that night seemed to be taking tremendous joy in chasing and killing random civilians still trying to heed the evacuation alarms sent out by the Yayjuu. Without even giving him a second look, Kai held out Erphtal and swung it in a small arc as he sprinted past the warrior, beheading it without difficulty. A fitting death for a demon who ran from the actual battle to harm the undefended citizens of Hawaii. It wasn't long until Kai could make out the sounds of battle between Yayjuu and Shadowfall forces, sounds which he followed until coming to a series of city blocks already devastated by the conflict. Though the demonic soldiers were powerful, Kai's allies seemed to be holding their ground against the horde. Regardless, the North West Warden would not sit idly by as his friends were killed.
Once within range of the front of a contingent of enemy soldiers the blade of Erphtal was coated in bright green flames of Kai's own creation. Swinging in a wide diagonal arc starting from his lower right. This caused the flames to erupt into a large inferno careening away from the Warden until it engulfed eight demon soldiers in fire hot enough to reduce them to little more than piles of ash. The arrival of Kai rallied the troops around him, increasing their morale and forcing them to fight harder than ever against the enemy who had come to destroy them all without a trace left. Though at first successful in driving back the attack in this specific area, nothing lasted forever.
Having been completely focused on sending wave after wave of foot soldiers back, Kai hadn't noticed the arrival of a significantly more powerful combatant. After sending a particularly large blast of Jade Dragon's Flames at his enemies Kai smiled because he was actually fighting them off. However once the fire dissipated the body of a two and a half meter tall behemoth-like robotic demon appeared, barely charred by the raging inferno. Kai's eyes widened as he realized just how much more powerful this individual was than anything he'd faced so far in this battle. Before he could even react the Knightslave demon lifted it's arm and fired a powerful, sinister blast of energy to Kai's right. Looking over, all Kai saw was nothing. Nobody and nothing had survived the elite warrior's attack.
It was evident to Kai even if all the nearby Yayjuu forces focused their firepower onto this one individual demon the chances of success were abysmal. For this reason he immediately called out to his allies and ordered them to leave the area and focus on evacuating civilians and defending the Yayjuu facilities up the road. "I and I alone with delay this thing as long as possible! Go!" With this last command Kai was left alone to face a significantly stronger foe.
Shifting to his Ranger Stance, Erphtal was replaced by a beautiful jade bow held firmly in his left hand, his knuckles white from the tight grip. Kai fired arrow after arrow, each imbued with the green flames he'd been blessed with by his bloodline, which exploded upon hitting the Knightslave demon in green infernos. Waiting and biding his time, Kai knew there was very little his arrows or flames could do directly to his opponent. It wasn't until the beast lifted it's arm did Kai see his opening. Right before the demon's cannon rifle fired another powerful laser Kai shot a jade arrow directly into the weapon's barrel, causing both the weapon and the entire demon to be engulfed by a massive explosion of its own making. The resulting damage of the blast was enough to destroy the Knightslave's arm all the way to the shoulder and cause significant ruin to the surrounding environment as well. Ducking behind a corner of a nearby building, Kai took a few seconds to catch his breath. At least there won't be any more lasers...

It had been a long time since Himeko had stepped foot in the realm of the living. Not out of a lack of time, but of desire to dwell in the human’s realm. With her position as Grand Duchess of the 7th Circle, it seemed like she would be far too busy maintaining order in Hueco Mundo to ever be deployed to the realm she so splendidly distasted, but it seemed that the narrator of this story had decided she been idle for too long. Typically, she would have ignored the 1st Circle request for assistance in the human realm, sending subordinates in her place with a grand excuse that couldn’t be argued against lest they wish to find themselves distracted and defeated. However, her excuse wouldn’t work this time around for this was not a request to police the areas under Shadow Falls control, but to overtake a land that had eluded them for sometime. It was an incursion that was long overdue and with Ravan leading the charge, Himeko wasn’t so bold to refuse the Demon King.
That was how the red-headed vizard ended up in Hawaii, a state under the control of the Yayjuu, Yuudeshi, and, by extension, the Vanguard. Having received her orders before the army had embarked on their campaign, the vizard had quickly advanced towards the northern islands alongside a horde of demons and a knightslave. Her objective had been simple: ensure that the knightslave secured the island’s armaments and technology complex and, if the knightslave was to fall, secure it herself. This was, of course, on top of the objective the army shared and that was to purge the island of the opposition. It wasn’t a simple task by any stretch of the imagination as, naturally, the Demon King’s army was at a disadvantage. They were on enemy territory and so, any weapons or defenses the island possessed had to be destroyed or secured.
Truthfully, she wished she had been given the task of ensuring that their bioweapon was unleashed. Regardless, Himeko aimed to complete her objective as quickly as possible and so, she partook in the slaughter of the island inhabitants with the simple goal of clearing a path for the knightslave. It could certainly take care of itself, however, the red-head knew that it would be faster. So, she had gone on ahead of the knightslave, ensuring that she didn’t stray too far in case someone of some skill responded to the carnage. And, her decision to do so was spot on for if she had advanced too far, she would not have been able to respond as quickly as she did.
With vector boost increasing the strength in her legs, she traverse the distance between herself and the knightslave. Suddenly, she’s in front of the mechanical demon, a scowl etched onto her face. She is displeased to see that the knightslave had lost an arm and, by extension, an important weapon that could have been used to secure their objective. Although it diminished the knightslave’s capabilities, the mechanical demon could still fight and thus, was still useful. However, Himeko wished to wring the neck of the one that had caused the damage. With the knightslave still operational and the enemy likely in the vicinity, the vizard prepped for an encounter. “Continue towards the objective!”
She snaps, a glowing red vector plate appearing beneath the knightslave. Several other vector plates would appear, though black in appearance, they all pointed in the direction she had come from. With the plates set, the red plate turns black the knightslave is gone, the vector plates disappearing upon the mechanical demon passing over them. Now, she had considered simply overriding the demon and piloting it herself, but with no experience under her belt, it was best that she left it alone and simply help it advance further whilst she dealt with the lingering threat.
And, upon crafting herself a spear courtesy of vector blade, she waited to see if the enemy would come out or if she would have to hunt them down and put them out of commission - temporarily or permanently. It truly didn’t matter to Himeko, but she definitely preferred to get this fight over with so that she could catch up with the knightslave before it ran into anymore trouble. So, a game of cat and mouse would not last long and, just to make that clear.“You should come out. There’s no point in hiding.”

When he'd made his way to Hawaii courtesy of some lax security measures aboard a freight ship, the last thing Alex had really thought about had been the potential for demon invasions. Sunburn? Yeah, sure, no biggie. Drowning? Not likely, he was a good swimmer, but that riptide could get you something fierce. But nah, not demon invasions, those were probably the last thing he'd been too worried about. Yet here he was, downing the last bits of his mai tai and lighting up a new cigarette, his grip on the lighter tightening a bit as he tried not to stress out too much about the whole ordeal. No sense in flipping out, he was here now.
The real shame, he figured, was the fact that the very sweet and very lovely lady friend he'd made was now no longer a whole person, closer to two or three pieces of a whole person that if you stuck them together might equal most of a full woman. Really, what a fuckin' waste. Taking a deep pull from the now-lit cigarette, Alex slipped on his shirt and, before anything else, looked for a good place to hide his bag. The last thing he wanted was his pants getting stolen, nothing was worse than sleeping in trunks. With a half-hearted shrug, he stuck it between a few bushes that kept the sand on the beach from getting too far onto the sidewalk or into the street. Odds were that everyone would be too busy closer to the city to take his shit anyway, but you could never be sure. With that little detail handled, Alex ran a hand through his hair and flicked the ash from the end of his cigarette. These demons were really cramping his style, and the last thing he was gonna let fly was an abrupt end to his vacation.
As he heard a rather immense explosion from closer to the city, Alex briefly reconsidered this course of action. “Well, this oughta be a good time. Ten bucks says that wasn't a confetti cannon.” After a few seconds more thought, he shook his head and made his way in that general direction, though at a pace that one might only call a casual walk. Of course, that casual attitude didn't last long, as it took barely any time for him to be confronted by a few more demons looking to ruin his day. Great, cool, awesome, just what he wanted. “Yo, listen, can we not? Can't you just, like, leave?” The attack in response was enough answer for him, though, and if he hadn't been able to defend himself with a quick handful of Maiden Masher, it might have been a more serious problem. “What the fuck, I even asked nicely.” Guess that answered any other questions.
Luckily, Alex wasn't a total schmuck. Not exactly a god either, but you know, he could hold his own. Drastically increasing Maiden Masher's size, Alex drove it through the demon in question, wincing ever so slightly as he felt his body warm up just a bit. Never fun, that, but he'd be fine for now. He followed that up with a flurry of strikes, a brutal assault of slashes and kicks that lacked any real definition, and before long he found himself grinding the demon's face into the ground with his heel. “Hey asshole, we could've avoided this whole thing, you know.” With a final series of stomps finishing the demon off, Alex continued making his way toward the source of the earlier commotion. It was personal now, he'd just been here to have a good time and these fuckin' guys had the audacity to come along and try to kill him.
As he neared, however, he found himself thinking it might be best if he tried to hide rather than just walking out on the sidewalk. Upon spotting what looked to be some chick ready to kill a man of his station without even trying, the decision to stay sparse only proved more appealing, and so Alex made the executive decision not to be an action hero and just wait things out for now. He figured he'd have his shot to help out and show 'em what they got for ruining his trip, and if he didn't, well, he wasn't gonna die trying.

Behind cover Kai could stay safe for at least a few moments to gather his thoughts and figure out a plan of attack against this still-functional behemoth of a demon. Despite having its entire arm blown off, the Knightslave demon didn't seem all that bothered by the injury. In fact disregarding the absence of the arm cannon Kai had destroyed, the beast hadn't really reacted at all from sustaining such a serious wound. The Chinese youth figured if he wanted to take it down he would have to cause a lot more internal damage to stop it from functioning, or at the very least lop both its legs off to at least prevent anymore movement from the powerful robotic demon. Thankfully all the Yayjuu soldiers and civilians in the nearby vicinity had successfully evacuated. At least it doesn't have anything to target right now...
Even from behind a concrete wall Kai could sense the arrival of a new individual, someone he figured would be another dangerous adversary given it didn't seem to attack or fight the Knightslave. Wanting to get a good view of his opponents Kai turned into the building he was hiding next to and located the closest staircase, of which he sprinted up until reaching the roof's door. After opening the half-destroyed door, Kai exited through it and quietly made his way to the edge of the building to look down on the battlefield. Standing close to his previous enemy was a seemingly young girl clad in crimson clothing and hair whom, from appearances, did not seem all that dangerous but Kai had learned not to judge a book by its cover. The idea of the newcomer's appearance belying a more fearsome foe was reinforced by the level of energy he could sense coming from the individual. Just what I need, another enemy stronger than I am. His own thoughts were less than confident about the situation he found himself in.
Steeling himself, Kai knew he was the only real defense standing between his enemies and the nearby Yayjuu armaments dump. The only possible plan of action involved using everything at his disposal to stop these two in their tracks. After quickly looking around and taking in his surroundings Kai was able to come up with a few ideas to cause as much damage as possible to the robotic demon he'd already clashed with. Observing his opponent's actions, all Kai could surmise was she had done something to aid the damaged cyborg creature in some way though clearly not to heal it. Quickly nocking an arrow, Kai took aim at the Knightslave as it turned and began moving away much faster than he expected. About ten meters before passing a large stone pillar, a remnant of a collapsed building, Kai released the arrow which whizzed through the air even faster than his target was moving before lodging itself a few centimeters in the beast's shoulder where its arm used to be. Before the arrow had reached its destination Kai had already shot another at the still-standing wall behind the pillar, which promptly exploded into an inferno of green flames strong enough to send said pillar flying into the side of the Knightslave. The blast from the arrow had sent the pillar flying so quickly it hit the demon so hard he smashed into a wall on Kai's side of the street which had the effect of pushing the arrow in its shoulder all the way through its torso to the point of only its jade fletching still being visible. Now embedded deep within the demon, Kai caused the flames sealed into the arrow to explode as the other had, scorching and incinerating the less durable innards of the demon. His plan had so far gone without a hitch.
With one enemy now unable to move due to being burned to its core, literally, Kai stood a better chance at trying to deal with the other individual wielding a spear. Her request for him to come out would be answered by Kai leaping from the building from which he'd dealt significant blows to the Knightslave. While in midair Kai had switched Stances again, this time back to Standard, and summoned his guandao Erphtal upside down in his hands. Using the momentum from falling, Kai slammed directly into the back of the Knightslave demon and impaled the now-weakened beast with his weapon's massive blade, locking the creature in place against the ground. Just to be sure it wouldn't be standing back up any time soon, Kai funneled more of his jade fire through Erphtal and into the abdomen of the Knighslave to cause as much damage as he could as quickly as possible in fear of being attacked by the other enemy commander before he was finished.
Turning to face Himeko, Kai dusted his hands off and placed them on his hips as a soot-covered smile spread across the young man's face. "Hey I'm Kai! Sorry about your friend but to be fair he wasn't a very nice guy. Since you don't seem very happy we'll skip the niceties. If you surrender now all that'll happen is you'll be imprisoned, which is a far cry better than what the other guy got. What do you say?" As he finished revealing his offer of a peaceful resolution, Kai switched to Ranger Stance and summoned his jade bow with which he immediately nocked an arrow and aimed squarely at his newest opponent. Kai may have hoped for an agreement but he prepared for the worst.
