「A NOTICE FOR THIS THREAD」
Alright, sorry for holding things up, a lot of things came up and I'm in a ton of threads right now. So , I plan to post for this thread by Sunday or you all can just skip me. I apologize for holding things up, but I have a feeling Cirno's post is going to be fairly long given the material I was handed. Therefore, I focused on easier threads first before getting ready to write up her post here.

Everything was going to hell in a hand basket. The Inverse Realm seemed to be on the heavy assault from every corner of the globe, but there appeared to be an extra infestation of unwanted guest on this occasion. Emerging forth out of a square vortex, numerous hundreds of Shadow Fall troops made their move on the scene and caused this mission to become all the more complicated. Therefore, the Iramasha needed to step their means of attack up and prepare themselves for the rough battle that was going to be presented to them.
The Iramasha braced themselves by acting together as a unit and synchronizing each others energy through their infamous fusion techniques. They merged their spiritual energy as one and shared the wealth of power they possessed a single force in multiple squadrons of two dozen each. These teams would then ambush all Shadow Fall agents they could detect and thus these troops could begin their assault.
There were numerous scuffles exploding all over the place from members of the Iramasha and those of Shadow Fall alike. The body count was raising, but it seemed that the Iramashsa were maintaining their edge on the battle even with their presence. Yes, they lost roughly 10% of their own in the clash, but these Shadow Fall troops were suffering triple the amount due to their combined effort. So as plumes of smoke, burst of light and clash of fist against flesh echoed out across the battlefield; this was indeed turning into a hellish war for control over the Kora A'ina of Yina.
Meanwhile, the likes of Cirno started assisting in the demolition of all obstacles standing in their way of success. There wasn't anything to regret or think about the deaths of her comrades, so she instead channeled her emotions into combat and fired off a a mile and half long explosion of pure destructive power. This beam toasted the likes of the Kora A'ina's agents, alongside a good chunk of Shadow Fall's forces. Since, after all, this was a Chaos Blast fired off from a powered Iramasha on par with the top Espada. It was bound to leave its impact, but there was so much more to deal with.
The apparent leader of this battalion of freaks emerged and he seemed ready and willing to cause mayhem and destruction upon the world. This was something that Cirno could not allow and she had to focus her sights on him. If nothing else, with the detection of reinforcements coming, The Angel could leave the slaughtering of the lesser threats to that wild Phoenix Iramasha known as Aish Iramasha. Therefore, with her doubt thrown to the wayside, The Iramasha took flight to the heavens and sought to deal with this pest one way or another.
As the First Circle Leader started summoning his vile and wicked energy to the surface, Cirno's energy detection picked up on this and a simple fact came rushing to her mind. If he was utilizing Demon Energy -- then perhaps she should just go straight forward and harness the potential of her holy energy. If nothing else, due to the power gap between, The Iramasha felt she could perhaps overwhelm this satanic presence with her angelic influence in an age old cash of Angels VS Demons.
Henceforth, as the clouds began to darken with vicious intent, The Angel of The Ice called forth her holy powers and sought to forge a purification spell. This was done in order to counter this blinding miasma before it could harm any innocents or her allies. Ergo, in a burst of blinding white light, Cirno unleashed a cyclone of angelic energy towards the skies and sought to overtake the toxins through this distillation method. If it was fueled by Demon Energy? Then there would be nothing else to worry about -- hopefully.
None the less, regardless of whether or not that tactic work, Cirno needed to go ahead and take out this Archduke while she was still in top fighting condition. There were multiple powerful signatures heading towards this area and she couldn't afford to sit around and enjoy the scenery. As a result of this, The Angel Iramasha went into full offensive mode and sought to fire off another deadly Chaos Blast directly in the face of White Eye with little to no warning.
If this blast hit? Then it would seek to target his demonic essence and put him under extreme pain and damage by overwhelming with her angelic presence. This could result in multiple burns across his body, limbs being blown to bits, organs rupturing, bones crushing and the very supple of demonic energy within him being assaulted until not an ounce of it remained in the best case scenario. Effectively, with all the impact this blast had, it yielded the potential to put him out of the fight swiftly because Cirno empowered herself and sought to kill. This wasn't the kind of battle where she could afford to hold back and this individual needed to be taken out IMMEDIATELY.
"Goodbye, Demon. I won't let your kind have their way with this operation."
Those words came off as stern and angry because they were making this entire mission more complicated and forcing The Angel Iramasha to use up more energy than she needed. As sweat started to drip down from her forehead and body, she could feel the heat within herself rising to the surface, her heart beating and the signs that she was warming up was more than coming into play. The Angel Iramasha could keep this up for sometime, but she needed to pace herself and not let her emotions get the better of her. If she did? Then she wouldn't last in this battle. This was going to be a test of stamina and she needed to preserve her strength for whatever may lay ahead.
So, baring those thoughts into mind, Cirno hardened the density in her right arm through her ability to freeze the internals of her body. Through this heavy amount of ice, combined with Cirno's overbearing energy, The Angel of the Ice propelled herself towards the direction of White Eye and sought to add a follow up to her assault by giving him one hard punch to the face. In this face, her shock to the senses would crush the bones in his face and hopefully give him a swift knock-out punch.
As, on the flip side, this strike also yielded the potential to hurt the spiritual side of The Demon because of The Iramasha utilizing her Chaos Energy at the same time. Therefore, if it made contact, it could convert the damage done by the hit and make it applicable on the metaphysical level to beat through his defenses and further exhaust his body and inflict further damage to wear him down and throw this beast out of the fight.
Once finished with that debacle, even if her hits failed to make their mark, The Angel of The Ice would pull back and take a deeper notice of her ally, Aish Iramasha. She was throwing herself straight into the fray and Cirno needed to ensure that her ally was well taken care of. Due to this cause of concern, The Iramasha attempted to try and connect herself to the energy frequency of The Phoenix Iramasha. This was done by natural racial ability for Iramasha to infuse their energy together. Thus, a single wisp of blue light moved in to attach itself to the power that Aish's body was emitting and sought to triple it with the large reserves Cirno's body possessed. If nothing else, she'd at least be fighting on par with a 1-5 at this point and all of her abilities would be enhance three times over with potential boosts to her stats.
Of course, this was not a free card in the slightest. If Cirno decided to go through with this course of action, there would be more pressure placed on her body in order to help support her comrade and she would burn through more energy. However, that was a risk she seemed willing to take if it would help her comrade. Not only that, but she could at least keep tabs on her and launch attacks through her body if push came to shove.
But at least this way, the body of Aish would be extremely resistant to enemy fire at this point and Cirno could have ease of mind that her ally would be okay. So, in order to spread the good news, The Angel of The Ice tried to use Iramashsa Sync in order to telepathically send a message directly into Aish's mind.
'Aish, you may not fully trust me, but I don't care about that. You need to take hold of my energy and accept my fusion. We are going to need to work as a team and I don't want to see you get hurt. So please, just trust me.'
Those words were spoken quickly and with the slight sense of care because within Cirno's heart she honestly wanted to avoid anymore death if she could with her power. That was one of her main objectives and she needed to see to it that it stayed alive no matter what opposition came their way.
And so, it is for that reason that she'd then take notice of a lone maid walking on to the battlefield. There was almost a look of astonishment that such a powerless person would so casually walk into a war like this, but there wasn't much time to process it. The only thing that overtook Cirno's mind was the urgency to protect. So, without thinking, The Iramasha sent a tendril of blue and white energy from the aura engulfing her body and directed it towards The Unamed human.
If this tentacle of energy managed to connect itself to The Maid's body? Then it would provide the same empowering effects it gave to Aish, but of a much greater level due to the fact it didn't take as much energy to enhance someone who had so little spiritual energy. Ergo, the small woman may notice a sharp increase in a sensation known as "power". Her senses would be greatly enhanced, while her energy would be comparable to that of a 3-5. But, more than anything else, she would also be protected by the angelic presence of Cirno's energy and she'd attempt to defend her as best as she could.
This would also prove to have good timing. As, not a few seconds later, a bolt of lightning struck from the sky and vaporized the earth around The Maid. It destroyed Shadow Fall troops that were preparing to kidnap the woman, the earth and all else around her. Yet, that shield of energy would hold still and help endure the human through this bombardment of energy. And so, it would be around that time where Cirno's voice would pursue making telepathic contact with the unwitting witness to their clash.
'I'm not sure what the heck you are doing, but you should take this chance to flee. There isn't much time to explain things, so all you need to know is that there is one wicked war going on and I need you to get out of here while you can. I can't afford innocents to get hurt in the crossfire of this war because something foul is on its way here.'
Hopefully, the human wouldn't be too frightened by her voice, but Cirno would attempt to point her in a direction where Iramasha troops summoned a vortex leading back into human world. More importantly, it led back to their native island where they were taking the sick, wounded and dead back to the medical facilities on their settlement to otherwise tend to all of the nasty collateral associated with war.
'Follow them and get out of here. I'm pleading with you. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to manage this before that awful power comes.'
[CHANGE THE TRACK HERE]
And, almost as if on cue, that sinister energy that the Angel was referring to appeared with a massive roar. The ground started to quake, the skies shifted color and a dense sensation of spiritual pressure slammed into the area like a freight train. In the motions of clenching her fist and biting her lip, The Iramasha felt as if this day went from bad, to worse to an absolute NIGHTMARE. It was if it was a train accident of bad things compiling one on top of another; all building up until this raving lunatic showed up to turn this incident into a horror.
But, if this male represented nightmares, then Cirno would do her damndest to represent the light of dreams. Since there was still hope she could overcome this this terror if she kept her head on straight and fought like she meant it. As, unlike some of the opponents she's faced in the past, The Iramasha could tell that this male was certainly going to hold no reserves with his assaults based on how he threw his power around.
'If you aren't ready to die today...just fall back. This is an order from the Iramasha Elite. It goes for bystanders, allies and enemies alike.'
Based on these traits and the level of danger posed, there was no sense in dragging those who weren't prepared into this battle. Therefore, through telepathic communication, The Angel of The Ice called for all those who weren't prepared to die on this day to fallback. And, for those that do, to produce a five mile wide barrier in order to conceal them in this dome to prevent Sou from causing anymore damage or death. Ergo, in moments, thousands of Iramasha started falling back as a blue dome took root over the lands. Combined with excess energy from Cirno, it should at least prove well enough to withhold this battle as other Iramasha started to battle Shadow Fall Troops and minions of the Kora A'ina outside of the dome; while others proceeded deeper into the core to put an end to this debacle.
This then left Cirno feeling somewhat more secure in her battle because she would not have to worry as much for others around her. She couldn't help those that wanted to stick around, as, at the very least, they knew what they were getting into after that warning was announced. Therefore, as the male struck with the utmost viciousness behind his attacks, Cirno paid keen attention to his movements and noticed a strong gathering of wind in his hands.
Recalling back to her command of the wind, Cirno made the big assumption that she could otherwise control the air particles that compromised of his gust based explosions. Therefore, before they could become much of a threat, The Angel Iramasha sought to take control of those molecules and place them in a state of freeze in order to otherwise neutralize their potential and cancel them up. In return, this would sacrifice bits of her energy, but she still had quite a bit to spare since she wanted to stop this nightmare before it began.
However, his next move would catch her somewhat off guard. After she was done dispelling those attacks, the next strike would come in the way of a pressurized bullet. There wasn't much energy to it, but Cirno could detect its presence as she had a fair awareness of disturbances in the environment around her. So, through her reaction and speed, she narrowly avoided becoming swiz cheese by tilting her body out of the way. Granted, it didn't entirely take her out of harms way. The right side of her cheek was grazed and a bit of blood started to spew out of her face. This led to a burning and stinging pain, but it was not anything that her durability and resistance to pain could not handle. It just made it all the more real that she shouldn't allow herself to fall prey to this man's attack. Since, if she took that attack directly, The Angel Iramasha felt it would have had a noticeable impact and it was apparent enough that this male's energy was on par, if not, stronger than hers. So she needed to tread carefully and proceed with this battle in a cautionary mindset.
In spite of that mild success, there was one thing she hadn't anticipated -- the explosion. There wasn't much time to react, even with her supernatural senses, and she needed to otherwise diffuse the situation on reflexes alone. Therefore, from instinct, the automatic response to danger would be to shield ones self. And so -- that is exactly what Cirno did in this instance. As soon as that atomic blast dropped, a surge of chaos energy rushed from within The Angel Iramasha in order to otherwise forge a compressed dome around herself.
Following the formation of this barrier, once the blast touched that zone -- something special would happen. In the moments following its massive fiery glow, The Ice Fairy would then attempt to have it suck in all of the explosion in order to evade otherwise having the remaining allies on the field risk getting injured by this catastrophic attack.
Of course, nothing was perfect, and neither was this method. In exchange for sealing the blast in this dome that expanded no further than a five feet perimeter around Cirno's body, the cost came down to putting strain on her body. The dome was able to otherwise absorb seventy percent of the attack, but her body took the remaining thirty percent. So, when the light and smoke cleared from the area, the shield was shattered and Cirno's body had various injuries implanted across it. These ranged from numerous cuts, light burns and overall tattered clothing with a sense that her energy levels dipped somewhat after getting hit.
Moreover, there seemed to be a deeper gash on her left arm that she was holding as she winced in pain. But, fortunately enough, the training that the Angel Iramasha underwent seemed to be holding up; as this type of attacked would have been much more devastating compared to where she was just a year ago. From the way things were progressing, her durability could still hold out, greatly, in fact. But, the problem came when attempting to carry others along with her power while still attempting to carry out the multiple objectives in protecting those around her, attacking the core and somehow defeating the remaining Shadow Fall Troops, their Archduke and Sou on top of that
And, during this space of reflection, Cirno wasn't just enjoying the scenery and gazing off into the space. No. She was transferring tid-bits of energy from the remaining Iramasha she was synchronized to that weren't in active combat in order to otherwise heal that gash so she could resume the fight. Yeah, the barrier held a good priority, but she was one of the strongest warriors on this battle field at the moment fighting for what she believed was the greater good. Therefore, she needed to be fit and she needed to be properly tended to as this fierce battle dragged on into the hallways of hell itself it seemed.
But, if nothing else, the male seemed pretty hellbent on taking care one of their common enemies: White Eye. This would proceed a prime opportunity to watch his fighting style, memorize it and prepare to fight against as she attempted to heal from 1/3 of her injuries. While his attacks were extremely potent, it still gave off the impression that the male relied heavily on his physical capacity to put up a fight. And, with the being the case, it could be inferred that he wasn't a spiritual being and that his physiology could be more bound to a flesh and bone body; as opposed to the metaphysical type she faced against the likes of Moonie Iramasha and other elemental fighters.
Therefore, if Cirno could just figure out a way to knock him out, the rest should be easy pickings. She didn't have to outright beat him with nuclear assaults, but instead, if she timed her attacks just right? The Iramasha assumed she could end this without exhausting anymore of her energy reserves. As a result, a plan was forged i n her mind and she was glad the male was focusing so heavily on other opponents and not her for the time being.
[CHANGE THE TRACK HERE]
By the time that the male had completed his rampage against the Shadow Fall Agent, Cirno started directing energy into each of her fist in order to seize a more direct approach to ending his tirade. Around the moments following his kick against Aish's energy blast, The Angel of The Ice would tap into the power of Chaos Warp in order to emerge behind The Nightmare. Without so much as a single warning, she'd put her ice powers into overdrive and attempt to leave a sound and hard, cold punch to the male's neck.
In turn, this had quite a few purposes. The first purpose that it served? From the sheer blunt force of the attack, it yielded a strong chance of knocking him out as she aimed to put intense pressure on his neck to snap it and possibly render the male paralyzed, fainted or otherwise out of commission. Furthermore, as she followed this up with a punch sent directly at his spine with her free left hand, she sought to compound the collision force of a half city wide explosion upon the body of Sou Yuuki. Making it so that even if she missed, the additional collateral force associated with the hits would still be able to leave half the potency of damage upon Sou's body if he were within five hundred meters of this assault. Furthermore, to ensure that her allies weren't caught up in the crossfire, the frequency of Cirno's spiritual energy would avoid them taking direct damage from this explosive assault, but they may get caught up in the crossfires of extreme wind, debris and other hazards tethered into this clash of powers.
But, that wasn't the most important part. Going back to her element of ice, The Fairy intended to outright induce a supernatural frostbite upon Sou's neck. By performing this act, she could begin to spread more of her wintry influence across his body through her particles being spread both internally and external across different parts of his body. In turn, this would then lead to his tissue and flesh being molded into solid ice based on the fact the frozen substance would have dried by this point. Then, that would lead to immense swelling across his body and would cause paralysis across his body and potentially make various limb, organs and bones alike fall to pieces due to said drying.
It was getting ugly on Cirno's end, but she was seeing the development of her powers come full circle with the capacity and strength they held with strike she gave. As, by giving it a bit more fuel and taxing herself further, the Angel Iramasha bared with a jarring pain in her gut as she sought to take this supernatural Frosbite to another level. In fact -- it was the metaphysical level. If allowed to infuse itself deeper into Sou's body, the influence of Cirno's energy could apply the element of Frostbite to otherwise apply on a spiritual level and start dissolving the very energy within Sou. This would result in a form of cellular disintegration, but applied to the supernatural capacities of The Nightmare in order to render him further neutralized in this fight and outright attack his spirit to bring him down, weaken him and lower his overall health and durability.
Ergo, at this point, Sou may very well begin to notice his health taking its toll on him. As Cirno intended to follow this up with a barrage of punches across his chest, elbows, wrist, thighs, ankles and throat in order to otherwise accelerate the production of these effect and bring The Walking Atomic Bomb to a standstill. This pushed Cirno's body, as she could feel the strain beginning to catch up to her, but she couldn't afford to let a dangerous menace like this continue to freely fight. Something had to be done and it had to be DONE now.
So, Cirno fought through the sensations of pain and discomfort in order to meet this challenge headfirst.Thus, she'd focus on attempting to further banish Sou by harnessing the power of her purification abilities through her angelic lineage. Since this entity reeked of something fiercely negative, the element of purity and holy nature may prove effective in taming Sou. Ergo, six burst of light would fire off from the tips of Cirno's frozen wings in order to hit Sou and induce a sense of purging. Since he was filled with chaotic intentions, the hope was to cleanse his mind and attempt to revert his mind back to a redeemed state through brainwashing. If nothing else, she could at least attempt to restrain him further by binding the flow of spiritual energy surging in his body if that failed. However, she felt that perhaps this male was infected by whatever was going on in this realm, and maybe her helping hand could help steer his mind towards what she considered "the light".
In spite of it all, this constant barrage of assaults and abilities couldn't go on forever. The Angel of The Ice could feel her body beginning to growl at her in frustration, but she needed to keep up the pace. Yes, it was taxing to endure this, but it had to be done. So, as blood started to ooze from her legs, Cirno continued to fight even when not moving. As, she'd jump away from Sou to recover, only to have more of her energy zapped as it would shield Aish away from the destructive burst of lightning that The Nightmare launched at her. This, in turn, would allow The Phoenix Iramasha to continue fighting as normal, while Cirno would suffer the exhaustive effects.
So, as The Angel of The Ice started to recover her energy and recharge, she could do nothing for the bird that had slammed directly into the battlefield. If it was attached to Aish's spiritual frequency? Then it would be protected under Cirno's defensive fusion that she underwent with the Phoenix Iramasha. If not? Then this creature was just going to have to fend for itself until The Ice Fairy could otherwise refuel herself for the next round of combat. It was a harsh reality, sure, but there was only so much a single entirety could do within such a finite time span.
But, alas, as she began sweating and trying to recover, this bastard was still unrelenting in his attacks. Since, from what she witnessed, The Nightmare intended to outright butcher The Rouge Maid on the battlefield by sending her one powerful bullet capable of even giving Cirno a bit of trouble. Therefore, The Angel of The Ice understood that she had to leap herself into action, overcome this fatigue and rush to try and save this person if they hadn't already evacuated the war zone at this point.
Ergo, with a thrust of speed, Cirno pushed through her limitations and took off like a bat out of hell towards the location of The Maid. With her speed being the most crucial factor in all of this, The Angel Of The Ice would utilize her body like a shield to otherwise take the impacting shot for the human. This came in the action of The Iramasha deflecting the vibrating bullet away with her right hand and unleashing a hellish explosion after it. Debris and large chunks of the earth around them went scattering for a hundred meters in every direction, but the shield around this Maid would hold up.
Unfortunately, that arm wouldn't be as luckily. From how much energy and power was behind that blast, Cirno's right hand started bleeding profusely and pain radiated all the way from that fist up to her right shoulder blade as a result of her action. This caused an agonizing stabbing pain to radiate throughout her body, but she would suppress it, fight it and endure it as the warm fluids bled out on to the cold earth beneath her. With a winced gaze, she'd turn her head around to the likes of the human and shout out:
"Why are you still here!? I told you, you need to hurry up and move unless you want to die! You don't look like a fighter and I can't keep this up forever! That blast would have blasted you were just by yourself in this. So, please, just move out of here! It's too dangerous!"
There was a sense of pleading, frustration and pain intermixed in those words as Cirno clenched her right arm; biting down on her lip and holding back the surges of pain that started to overflow within it. Fortunately, Cirno was not alone. The instant that the dip in energy was felt in The Angel Iramasha, a crew of seven Iramasha Elite Soldiers rushed to her aid and began repairing the wound. However, it still would not take back 100% of the damage and energy, but it should help in at least allowing her not to be blinded by pain and bleeding profusely.
As she turned her attention towards another Iramasha entering the fray, Cirno understood that those plants were going to be pivotal to adding the clench to take the wind out of Sou's sails. Therefore, Cirno shoo'd the soldiers away from her and pointed towards Aki's direction.
"Forget about me! I'll heal just fine just a few moments, focus on empowering her over there! If she is attacking this insane man directly, then it must mean she has something special that'll work. Power it, power it, power it, power it, power IT!"
Barking orders like a sergeant almost, The Iramasha Elite around her jumped in surprise and followed orders. In this way, they'd otherwise send their energies into the body of Aki through Iramasha sync and seek to boost the power of her plants by three times. In the meantime, Cirno would make use of her spiritual particles still rampant in the air to allow her powers to otherwise bypass Aki's plants. For, if she didn't make those mental commands, than they would just freeze to death due to the extreme cold that The Angel Iramasha was steadily injecting into the space around Sou Yuuki.
Then, with the reishi hover within and around Sou, Cirno would tighten her fist and attempt to otherwise freeze him in place to allow the enhanced attacks of Aki to otherwise make their dent on top of Sou. And, around that time, that is also when the likes when twelve more Elite Guards showed up and started bombarding the area with energized blast on par with energy blast shot off from a Vice Captain. They stormed area and sought to barrier The Nightmare in an avalanche of attacks. With their commander here? There was no need to fear as they had full faith they'd make through this alive.
Thus, with all this firepower storming the landscape, there was only one thing left to do. On the command of Cirno, a squadron of Iramasha whom were talented with sealing methods would emerge around a one hundred foot perimeter around Sou. Following this, they would utilize the abundant energy being produced by their Iramasha Sync and attempt to otherwise contain Sou within a blue and white seal. This seal was produced through the Iramasha's Chaos Energy and channeled into a spell. It's effects were then meant to otherwise begin zapping the strength of Sou's energy and entrapping it within the barrier to otherwise suck the power straight from him and leave him breathless, fainted and out of commission on top of all the other assaults being unleashed against him in this hell zone of assaults.
"You can repeat all those big words in hell, you overgrown, big mouthed tomato!"
With a middle finger rose, the fiery tone of Cirno's voice returned and she would wait and see if any of these measures against Sou would have an effect. If nothing else, she'd be ready for round two if there was anything left of him as she could already feel life, energy and willpower returning to her body.

「STATUS OF THE THREAD」
Ho'kay, based on the fact that Nix is on a long-term leave, we are officially dropping him out of this thread. We can assume that the hordes of Shadow Fall members ended up retreating after Black Eye was taken out in the crossfire of Cirno and Sou's attack. This caused him to be left in a coma state and his followers took him back to SF to retreat. That means it will be Tina's post and she will have three to six days to post (depending on if there is something going on). If she fails to post, then she will be skipped as well.

Pain. That was the first thing that Aish Iramasha felt as the leg of Sou Yuuki connected with her body. Gasping as she was flung back with great force, smashing in to the earth below. While externally she did not seem to have taken any injuries, she could tell that internally she had broken at least two ribs. Even with the energy of Cirno Iramasha infused in her body, this was a being well beyond her capabilities to defend against. Slowly lifting her body from the debris that littered her surroundings, Aish could feel her body healing already, the properties of the protective flames that surrounded her working to correct the injuries that had occurred to her body.
Letting a growling noise rip from her throat, brilliant wings burst forth from her back, rage clear in her eyes. The being would die, and she would make sure of it. Lifting in to the air, Aish’s eyes darted down as she noticed the flames below her, a questioning look appearing for a moment on her face before, without warning, a bolt of electrical energy shot up towards her. Reacting purely instinctively, blue flames quickly sprouted around her, covering her entire being with insane speed. As the bolt of electrical energy reached her, it simply raced through her, past her, and would disperse in the air above her as there was no longer any charge for them to be attracted to. For while cloaked in these blue flames, AIsh was completely intangible, not even the powerful electric force could reach her body.
Eyes flickering around the battlefield, Aish Iramasha took in the situation. The downed form of Cirno Iramasha on the ground, waiting for her body to heal as she ordered others around. The form of Aki Iramasha using her plants to attack the one who had come to harm them. Thinking quickly, Aish quickly came to a decision. Sending out a quick mental command, Fawkes would immediately surge in speed, heading straight towards Cirno. Once in front of Cirno the phoenix would look deep in to the eyes of the individual, before blinking and letting tears fall upon the wounds of Cirno Iramasha. With their healing prowess, it would likely mean Cirno would be up far quicker then would normally be expected. Also, she would find that so long as the phoenix tears circulated her system, Cirno would be entirely immune to poisons, toxins, and any foreign hostile energies. In fact, had Cirno already had any of these substances within her they would immediately be expelled, the phenomenal healing capabilities of phoenix tears dealing with any of these substances.
While this was going on, Aish had once more taken flight, her form surging towards the one known as Sou Yuuki. Blue flames swirling around her wrist, she cocked it back as she reached him before throwing her fist forward. The blue protective flames that had managed to protect her from Sou’s lighting died when her fist was mere millimeters from Sou’s head. Without it surrounding her, her fist would not simply pass through the skill of the nightmare, now it would actually hit. Following the attack to the nightmare, she would chaos warp away from Sou, coming to a stop next to Cirno Iramasha, eyes still glued to the menace that was there opponent. Looking towards the ice iramasha, a crazed grin spread across her face.
“Shall I play the bait for you all?”

The next few moments for Ophelia were a haze. Things were happening so fast, so quickly, that the woman just didn't want to keep track of the events that transpired in those few moments. A man- no, a fake of a man appeared and started to attack anything that was within view. It was clear that she was no match for him on a power level, but the fact she knew what was happening already gave her a bit of an edge. Not enough to triumph over this mess of individuals who seemed to be actually trying to get things done, though. Just enough so she wouldn't die. And she wouldn't have, even if this little blue child wasn't getting herself killed for the sake of someone who wasn't even trying to fight. It made Ophelia quite curious, but she didn't wonder about that. She was wondering about something else instead.
Start the song because that seems to be a thing on this site that people like
"I suppose you want me gone then, child?" the woman asked in a highly mocking tone. "I think not. I have more important things to do than play with you and your little friends."
Just the way Ophelia spoke about this all was probably infuriating. Calling all this death and madness a "game" often did that to people. It was one of the easiest tricks in the book, after all. And before anyone asks, yes, she's trying to anger the people that helped her. So, you know... they'd stop. That was the only thing Ophelia wanted right now. To be left alone so she could search for the thing that she felt like she needed more than life.
"How could anyone let a child onto the battlefield anyways? How old are you sweetie, seven?"
The woman couldn't help but mock the girl for her age, despite knowing she was probably older than that. Everyone here might as well be older than they looked, whether they were or weren't. That's just how spiritual affairs like this went. Aging might as well not be a factor that anyone need care about. Sure it was still a thing but nobody aged at a high enough rate for it to come into consideration. Sometimes, but only in very specific situations. Speaking of aging, Ophelia would probably get mocked for looking to be in her early 20s. Assuming that this little fairy assumed the maid's real age was that, or around there. No no no. Ophelia was too old to even be a human. But circumstances left her in this pitiful body, and there was nothing she could do now.
With a deep sigh, Ophelia took a few elegant strides forwards to stand next to this little fairy. With a giggle that sounded almost maniacal in nature, the woman looked up at the man who appeared out of nowhere and started causing trouble. The one that was clearly a Saca Dila.
"Say, little fake." The woman aimed at the big troublemaker. "Do you know where my fake is? About my height and body shape, long black hair, looks like a delinquent? I saw her earlier slaughtering soldiers by the dozen. Surely you can at least tell me where one of your own kind is? God knows you won't last very long here anyways."
Despite being relatively close to this man, at least for distances involving Reiatsu, she didn't seem to be affected by his pressure at all. It was obvious that, by the reiatsu Ophelia was emitting, that she was not on any tier listings at all. No, she was almost like the average soldier, but the feeling her reiatsu gave off might as well tell whoever was paying attention to her that there was more here than meets the eye. Anyone paying attention to her reiatsu would feel a heavy amount of nostalgia, as if they've seen this little maid before. And despite her reiatsu being technically much weaker than this man's, she wasn't under any side effects of being near such a massive source of power. If those two facts alone didn't arouse suspicion, the nostalgia emitting reiatsu and the lack of effect on her from the fake's reiatsu, then she didn't know what would. That was also part of what she was after. Causing suspicion.
"It'd be nice if you could tell me some time in the next year whether you know where she is or not, I don't have much time left on thi-"
The woman was cut off mid sentence by the sudden pain in her left arm. About halfway down her upper arm, there was an intense burning sensation, as if something had pierced- no, cut her deep. From one side of the bone to the other. Looking down she would see just how terrible the wound was. Laying on the ground was her now severed arm, blood spilling out of the severed limb and from what was left of her arm. Ophelia was left to simply stare at it with a blank expression for no more than a moment before she uttered something in a calm, slightly dismayed tone of voice.
Crouching down, Ophelia sighed and picked up her arm before rotating it to the proper orientation. She didn't want her arm to get reattached the wrong way. That would be terrible. Grabbing her arm near the wound, but not quite on it, the redhead simply brought the severed limb to her stump and pressed it to her wound. No more than a few seconds later, the bone in her arm had already grown and connected itself to the rest of the bone in her severed limb before pulling the arm back as close as it was to her body originally, so as to make sure the length of it didn't get changed.
"How nice of you to come to me, I was just asking this young man if he knew where you were, love." Ophelia said as her muscles and nerves started reconnecting themselves. While yes, her arm was reattaching itself, it wouldn't be done until about three to five minutes from now. That didn't mean she didn't have the capacity to defend herself though. Oh no, she was still at full fighting capacity. Well, for how strong she was this time around. Last time she would have been fully well and powerful enough to squash anyone here like a bug without a second thought. But those times were gone and now it was her turn to be the bug. She would have to play her cards right if she wanted to get what she came for. That would require her little "fake" to turn around and look at her though.
With a deep, exasperated sigh, the Saca Dila turned around. And it would be here that she would come to be noticed by everyone else. It was as if she had simply appeared there faster than the mind could register. Blink, and you would have missed it. There were no special sound or visual effects as the Saca Dila that Ophelia was talking to seemingly teleported in. There was no way for anyone to know that the fake had simply shunpo'd and then accelerated her clothes and weapon so she could move fast enough to sever an arm without being seen. The only reason she didn't accelerate her own body being the fact her powers didn't work on living things like the real Ophelia's did. When the Saca Dila decided to turn herself around, the manner she did so was almost flashy in a way, though her clothes might have made it seem so more than the actual person did.
"So you've accepted your demise then?" the real Ophelia asked. "Because as cocky as it makes me sound, you can't possibly expect that I'd leave here without killing you right? I need that arm, you know."
The copy only lowered one of her arms from her hips to her side, her other hand sliding casually into a pocket on her jeans as a black mist formed in her other, free hand. In this arm formed a sword that looked far too familiar to Ophelia. A sword that she saw a soldier using less than ten minutes ago, which was when she spotted her fake the first time. Some sort of copying ability she presumed. The real Ophelia only let out a little grin at this sight. A grin that expanded into a twisted, far too delighted smile.
"I was going to give you a quick death, but if you really want to be subjected to watching your own body disintegrate then I'll be happy to oblige."

How.. foolish. Having to deal with a bunch of kids struggling for their lives just to destroy that one core, it was truly funny on his perspective. Thinking all high and mighty that all would work out well if they work in a group, in a team, but they were truly wrong in one way; he wasn't simply a mere 'walking atomic bomb' just because of his ridiculous strength. For someone who is capable of fighting alone against multiple people at once, this was like a daily routine to him for someone who is a loner and basically, fights alone without friends, family or comrades to stay right beside him. For a typical villainous character like him, it was a fitting role for someone who ended the lives of many in a single blow of his fist. However, this was the reason he lived, and the true nature of the Nightmare who was born this way, to destroy and to kill, and nobody will stop him from achieving what he truly wants even if it means of fighting to the death. If they want to play it that way, then so be it, as this fight was just a war between a villain and a group of 'heroes' wanting to save the earth like they were some big shots that can do anything as they please, and it'll be his way to make them regret their choice of playing that role, the very role that his original self attempted to do so much and led him to his grave.
Trying to wrap him around with mere plants was futile, no, getting close to him was nothing more than yearning to die. Unless these plants contains a whole load of spiritual energy, the second these plants had tried to make a direct contact with his very body, what it would realize that it would be shred apart, like paper that shreds the existence of these plants so much that its entirety of existence, every atom and sub-atomic particles that allowed these plants to exist would evaporate. It wasn't a trick or anything, but the air around that screeched ever so loudly because of the ridiculous amount of pressure he exerted from his body even without the assistance of I.E.B.N, and clearly, monstrous enough to cause the air around him to whir like a chainsaw to cut anything that is weaker than him, especially those plants? It wasn't a defensive mechanism he had put up, it was natural for someone like him who contained nothing but power alone, to unleash an enough amount of pressure that caused his surroundings to just.. break apart the air and destroy everything that gets near him especially if that very thing does not have enough spiritual energy to contain 'itself'. If that method didn't work? Without moving an inch of his finger, all he needed was to tune up the percentage of his brain's capacity in the usage of his strength just by a little and reverse it back to its normal condition, to exert a sudden surge of pressure that would've exploded as if his body simply sliced the air around him like a cotton, and that is the result of the air particles that he messed around with using his strength, which is also a pretty common feat done by spiritual beings with high levels of spiritual energy.
When he proceeded to kick Aish's blast? One of the two scenarios he had to deal with, Cirno or the unknown individual who decided to step into the game and shoot a mere blast at him. For Cirno's case? Well, its hard to say that he was ever surprised since he had encountered it enough for him to stay on full alert on his surroundings, with any sudden appearances or surprise attacks that may prove fatal to his body since of course, his body is that of a mortal's, its just that he can tolerate damages that is unimaginable for a mortal's body to withstand, hence earning him the title of the 'Nightmare', thanks to his unforgiving tolerance to pain and how well tuned he is to his surroundings during combat in order to fit the circumstances especially when he was already prepared to fight multiple opponents at once on his own even if it was a clear disadvantage to fight against someone who has a dozen allies that can take him down if they fought on full force, but he won't go down as easily as they think he would be. However, for him? He only has two arms and two legs, and both attacks came around at the same time, making a rough decision for him to make, to be paralyzed or to be blasted, since he wants to keep the damages against his body to the minimum point in order to fight at his best. Only having very few moments for him to process his thoughts and decisive actions, nevertheless, he'll just make an attempt to deal with both of these pests all by himself.
After the destruction of the blast? Well, his left hand would reach out to the other approaching one, not to destroy it, but instead, to redirect the blast somewhere else. The blast itself was not as strong as he thought it may be, but it wasn't the time for him to waste his energy on pesky things like the blast. Of course, anything foreign that may in this blast? If it fused and only follows the blast's velocity, and only goes apart if the outer shell is broken? Well, it would be great news for him, catching the blast with his bare hand alone would only halt the movement of the blast, staying still before a second later, would be thrown right back at whoever that shot the blast back to where it was from. It wasn't really a hindrance to him, but the force was enough to make a dent to his palm and left quite the scratches considering the force of the blast was just meek. If asked how he had attempted it? Well, it was to use energy to cause vibrations across his hand by expelling energy equally to each muscle tissues for them to vibrate in synchronization, and that way, the second it made contact with his hand? The muscles that vibrated would respond to the information that crashed right into his hand, and almost instantaneously, the vibrations would tune into an opposite frequency to that of the blast's and just by the right amount, both of his own vibrations and the blast's force would be equally powerful, hence how he was able to halt the blast's movement from having a direct hit against him, and allowing him to unleash those vibrations in order to effectively throw the blast to the side for a good ol' explosion. If his theory was proven wrong? Well, considering how it made a dent to his hand, if there was anything within the blast? His bodily system would immediately alert his brain as that there are foreign objects that do not belong to the body's origin that there are unwanted things that are invading his bodily system and then? What happens? Well, something interesting does happen to his body, and it may seem new to those who once fought him before, but really, considering how he was able to manipulate his body's bio-electricity to manipulate electricity when he activates I.E.B.N, it is a clear indication that he has a full control of how his body can naturally generate electricity using the brain's power and his ability to control his strength, with that combined, it allows his body to naturally create its own defensive system to destroy harmful germs, viruses, bacterias, poisons, even acids that enters his body from the outside. And how does it react to it when it enters his body? Depending how dangerous the specified object or energy is to his body, his body would also react differently, and what is that defensive mechanism that his body creates on its own? Great question, and that answer is the 'discharge'.
It may sound weird, but its system is the same as a typical thunderstorm. Scientifically, it releases the charges through the usage of lightning by striking the earth to transfer excess charged particles from the clouds. By tuning that concept slightly, the discharge of electricity through the usage of his body's natural bio-electricity could 'remove' any unwanted objects in his body to be 'transferred' out of his body. How? If Aki's poison was able to get into his body, well, despite its size to be at the size that is of even smaller than an atom, estimated to be the size of either an electron or sub-atomic size. The second the poison entered his body, before it even had the chance to destroy any of his internal part, his body would proceed to unleash a surge of electricity from the infected part of his body, no survivors are spared in such. Once the brain was informed of such intruders, his body's nervous system would begin discharge a high voltage electricity from any affected part of the body by the said poison, and it functions by 'breaking down' the poison, that is if it is in a solid or liquid state of poison, it would be burnt down under its intensity of the electricity, even if it is smaller than an atom, as long as it has a 'physical or semi-physical existence', it will be evaporated into gas or even broken down into waves of 'energy', a matter or molecule that is no longer held together by a fixed state, and using the intensity of the electricity, everything that gave it to 'exist' in a solid state would be broken into waves of energy, and with that done, it would be guided out from his body by 'discharging'. If it were to be explained in a simplified form, it is basically breaking apart the physical existence of the poison to the point of becoming a 'wave' of poison, only to be further discharged from his body through electricity using its electromagnetic field. Which, the possibility of poisoning him would become very low, but possible against his defensive internal system if they can find a way to pass through the automated system his body provided against unwanted intruders, whether they are nano-machines or chemicals, anything deemed that are harmful to his body to the extent of destroying him internally would be burnt down into a 'wave-form', and discharged from his body through electricity.
With that settled? One thing to make sure, whether or not if they underestimated him, everyone in the world that knows his name knows damn well how much damage his body can pull through, and how tough it is. Knocking him out or even paralyzing his body with pressure? Now now, that is laughing stock. The second her fist landed coldly against the back of his neck, especially when she appeared from behind and how limited his movements were, the result? The Inverse Sou vomited blood right out of his mouth from the blunt force that went right against his neck, but not exactly the result that she wanted to achieve. For someone who can generate monstrous pressure from his body, having an unlimited access to his strength and had his body suffered enough to be able to withstand intense pressure exerted in a single force against his neck, which for most average shinigamis or even humans, their neck would generally either break or just knock them unconscious, but what Cirno was dealing is wasn't an ordinary human who is crazed with strength, but a physically-built body that can withstand things like this. The pressure that she tried to pinpoint his neck with force? His muscle would've sucked it some of the force into his body, immediately directing the force to his ribcage since he needed to tune down the force from Cirno's punch to allow him to redirect the rest of the available force to his left hand, to be compressed into the center of his palm, to be used for another attack that Cirno would attempt to shatter his spinal cord, a vital part of the human body. If asked how, well, considering how his muscle tissues are connected together, it is enough to be wired in order to absorb the remaining impact and spread across the back of his body, minimizing damage to the point of almost making just a small dent to his neck, and transfer that rest of the force in his muscle tissues to be compressed in his palm, very simple process.
For the frostbite effect? Again, the same concept applies. The body being his, the body develops its own defensive mechanism that would may proven harmful that can potentially damage him at a severe level or at worst cases, kill him. Depending on the danger of the frostbite that his brain can register with, without allowing the frostbite to spread anymore both internally and externally, so his brain would decide one of the two process it would do to eliminate the threat to which is the most effective. First method? Safer but there is a risk to take for it whether if it works or not. That? Using the compression of electricity on the area that is affected by the frostbite, was to use the friction between the layer of his flesh and the electricity that compresses on that area, and using the electromagnetic waves that the electricity emits by its charges and heat, just by compressing it and unleashing a weak blast of energy to create frictional heat, together with electrical charges to burn down any reishi that may cause the frostbite effect, and the heat to regulate the body temperature of the affected area. If it doesn't work, the second method kicks in. How does it work? Well, not as safe and the risk is much higher. That? When the frostbite effect invades his body, one way or another, whether it has reishi in the area or not, it would take the risk to either overload the reishi that resides in the frostbitten area, or produce its own patch of reishi to overload. If its his own energy to overload in contrast to the enemy's, one flaw, it would leave a burn to the frostbitten area if its overloading his own energy distributed through the vibrations of energy that his body naturally produces, and being apart of his own body, doing physical harm to it is possible and at worst cases, it would cause the flesh of that area to become swollen and explode. If its the Iramasha's reishi, it wouldn't be much of a problem than leaving a patch of burn marks to the frostbitten area and it would most likely heal just almost instantly. It overloads by sending waves of vibration across the frostbitten area, creating frictional heat to cause electric charges to the reishi surrounding the flesh that causes the frostbite to overload by the electromagnetic heat that it emits, hence it overloads when too much heat and energy collects on that specific frostbitten area and explode, making it riskier to take if its his own energy to work on it.
[ CHANGE SOUNDTRACK]
With that, instead of wasting his time to take the risk for a full 180 degree turn to face the Iramasha, all he did was shifting his body for a few degrees for a visible view of his own back, and without wasting time, he would attempt to catch Cirno's fist, and yes, you heard it, the Nightmare would attempt to catch it with his bare hand as quickly as possible. If it succeeded? Well, not as fortunate as it seems, considering how much force it packed in that one punch in an attempt to shatter his spine to disable him completely, it was the real deal, and not even a hesitation ever gone through his head and simply.. catch that one small fist of hers, with a force enough to wipe half a city apart right into his hand alone, but in all honesty, that isn't the feat that only she could do, especially who she is dealing with is someone of a caliber who has a rather destructive strength, with an 'unlimited access' made him different from most strength users, since he can seem to 'manipulate' his body and brain at will to know how much strength he preferred to use. In this case? Once he caught her fist, there was a single problem, and it was utilizing his strength to cancel all of that force. Despite his strength, it didn't mean he could cancel the strength of this level either without modifying the value of his brain's system to tap into a higher level of strength to take this one, so he had one attempt, and it was to use the compressed vibration and his own body to deal with it. With much ordeal he went through, he doubted that he would die so easily from this mere punch, afterall, the Inverse and the original Sou didn't earned the title of 'The Nightmare' so easily without putting up a fight against people like her.
With vibration compressed to his palm, the second Cirno's fist lands against his palm? It won't be directly right into his flesh and shatter him apart. Imagine the vibrations like a cushion to his body, that as the moment it lands, the existing vibrations in his hand would begin to shake as the fist lands right against his fist, creating a strong reaction within the vibrations and? If Cirno's reaction was precise enough, her hand would be in for a quick burn, electricity would begin to spark right out of his palm, and if she didn't retreat? Flames would combust right against the knuckles that smashed right into his palm, before expanding further into her hand to roast it off into a second-degree burn by the intensity of the heat from the combustion of flames. It happened for a simple fact, the force from her fist disturbed the stabilization of the vibrations in his palm, and by intentionally allowing these vibrations to be thrown off balance by making use of the force from Cirno's punch, the disturbance would create heavy friction within the strings of muscle tissues in his hand, creating enough charge to overload the muscles filled with electrical energy that is forced right out of his hand, as happened, electricity would first spark out with enough shock to rival a common taser, and creating combustion by using the small gap between his palm and Cirno's fist, which would brought enough heat for the lack of air to force itself out into a combustion of flames as it shot out like bullets in a blink of an eye when it happened. Hence, it happened. However, despite all of that, sure, this way, he could reduce the impact force in almost to a quarter or half of its original power that the Iramasha may have intended to smash right into his body, and the rest of that imminent force? He took it, literally by his body, and to her eyes, the Inverse would be shot miles away from her by how much force that it packed behind the small fist of hers, flying and eventually, would crash into an obstacles that may stop his body from continuing its flight away from her and causing the very obstacle that he may have crashed into the collapse onto his body.
However, that didn't stop him that easily. Breaking right out from the rubbles almost immediately after his feet was down, he was quite.. damaged in some way. Blood dripping out from his mouth from the previous hit, his head would have a visible sight of blood flowing down from his forehead. It wasn't all that serious to his physical body, but his arm that caught that force? It went through serious damage, but still being able to function, despite so, the damage to his left arm was significant compared to the rest of his body as if it was just that very limb alone that took the brunt of assault from the entire battle. Flesh being ripped apart, bleeding profusely, burn across his left hand as if it was darken by coal, it was just unbelievable and gruesome it was to even look at how damaged his left arm went through, yet, it was clear that he was able to clench the hand of the damaged arm, even move around for a bit, but seeing its condition, it is clear that this arm won't last any longer if it took more damage than needed. Haven't fought at his best yet, it was hilarious that how he was easily overpowered by the strength of a mere child-sized girl. Embarrassing enough for himself, it didn't well stop him from doing what he was originally made in this world of Inverse, that it won't end without the settlement whether or not if the core will live through under his protection as long as he lives, and even if he did die, he will overcome death with his own will and seek to replace his weak self, the original who died from tragic death for being weak, and letting his guard down at worst times.
With all of those brunt assaults that he had to tank against all on his own accord, stress was easily visible to take toll onto him considering how much he has to take into consideration to ensure his survival in this battlefield between the Inverse and the 'real' people of this realm, but he was as prepared to deal with any incoming attacks when the Iramasha came at him with six blasts of light, which he, the Nightmare, considered was nothing more than a simple attack attempted to 'end' him at his current state, but it wasn't as simple as that, as his mind wasn't prepared for 'this' kind of assault, this.. purification of sorts? He didn't know what effect it may bestow upon him, but who cares? Attempting to catch two of the six blasts with his bare hands to halt its movement, and has his body take it from the rest of the blast of light which he very much considered to be an offensive move without knowing what holds when all of that force only pushed him back farther a bit. Not knowing whether or not it was meant for destruction against the likes of him. Whether or not if it succeeded in cutting off the flow of spiritual energy in his body with her attempts against the likes of the Nightmare, one thing it was clear that it was.. well, typically useless. Other than serving as a type of 'healing' for his Vindeca in chi energy-wise, his spiritual energy was little-to-none when it comes to volume and how much 'power' it has in comparison to his physical strength, that uses none of that bullshit energy to prove himself as a formidable human who didn't need to rely on supernatural powers to advance his own goals. But his mind? The effect that the Iramasha may be aiming for might had an effect on him, but it wasn't quick to come into mind to show the effects afterall.
Standing up from the blasts, only left was a one-piece human that stood strong against the assault that they had to offer against him. His eyes would only sought to meet an army of soldiers gathering around him, and the drop in temperature that would otherwise affect his calculations and overall combat which makes it difficult for a 'crippled' individual like him, so changes are going to rough in his journey, but that won't stop him with messed up calculations. With the empowered plants, this would be a tough one to deal with considering how many soldiers there are in this area, yet.. it doesn't seem to affect his mentality at all to even consider how one-sided this battle was in terms of numbers and allies, for these soldiers and allies to go against one man, it would be laughable to even having to think about it. Confidently standing against the Elite Guards, the freezing of his body that the Iramasha sought to have an effect on him would more or less likely be of a useless attempt against his body, for something that has experienced paralysis, to continuously living in a body that has nerves severed from his control to only have a machine support his life, impaled in the head, crushed by a train, all sorts of situations, he named it, has never stopped him from moving even a finger, not until his death reaches out at him and reap his soul away. Having to experience the numbness of his body from various circumstances, a mere freezing of his body or even energy won't stop him so easily, that such things would only look stupid and inferior against his strength of his body and mind to push him so far into situations unimaginable for a human like him to achieve without the availability of any powers that can name him a 'superhuman'. With that, he seeks to cripple all of these guards and make sure that they experience the same numbness that he has to go through ever since the Australia War, by destroying what's left of their existence, and that, was to take things to the next step.
However, he doubted that he would be given any chance to execute any of his assaults before an avalanche of energized blasts began to storm through the battlefield in the attempt to obliterate his body and soul out of existence, but if they think that would be simple enough to halt his movements, then they would be wrong. With a tap against the earth, he would sought to close the distance between himself and each and every one of the guards at fast pace. How? Each tap of his foot equals to one guard that he would try and take out in a single breath, all in total, with twelve taps of his foot to take all of them out within a blink of an eye wouldn't be questionable. He would attempt to put a small strain to his legs by moving at hyperspeed using his strength, somewhere a few times faster than sound that would leave a sonic boom for every step he takes to the destruction of his surroundings, and that can be achieved by propelling himself by playing around with the reishi that the Iramasha kindly put up for his sake of freezing his body. That? Whether or not that these reishi are in the state of solid particle or air alone, one tap would close the space between his foot and the ground, and making use of that enclosed space, a weak compression of air would occur and that, to compress and force the air around him to suck into the enclosed space as if a vacuum just formed beneath his feet in order to create a powerful compressing effect that would force the reishi around him to compress where he wanted since it was convenient enough that they reside in his surroundings, making it an easy task to deal with. With that, using a simple trick of overloading the energy by forcefully compressing it too much into a single point, would cause it to become unstable and 'break apart' in the form of an explosions, hence why there was such a collateral damage within a few meters of his surroundings when he moves in hyperspeed, and the Nightmare would repeat this process exactly 12 times for each tap he does, to match the total number of twelve guards in this area of battlefield, and what exactly is he attempting to do in those process? Well, simple, he'll knock 'em hard and dry to make sure that they aren't eligible for the battle anymore. Not eradication of their existence, but the knock to their consciousness.
[ CHANGE SOUNDTRACK]
Vanishing within a blink of an eye, even with an extraordinary reaction speed and capability that these guards has for their 'elite' title, one flaw that they had in the preparation of this battlefield, is the power to make sure that they are on par against the Nightmare. His ability to adapt and make use of his surroundings via calculations is what gave him the title of the 'Nightmare' and why he was considered as a huge threat to the point where the entire world considered him as an enemy. Devil's luck for not dying in his journey, but his experiences was enough to make up for his Inverse's ability to fight effectively and sufficiently to make sure that these so-called 'Elite Guards' weren't up his match. To start his spree, he would swing his hand upward to unleash a strong vibration in order to cleanly split a path between the waves of energized blast for him to pass through with ease. Not needing to waste his time clearing out all of it, it would be less of a hassle to have these guards taken out instead of taking wave after wave of blasts that he has to deal with later on which may make his combat hard to deal with it. So, 12 steps and 10 seconds to finish up the business against the likes of these Iramashas that aren't even fit for the battlefield to deal with him.
First step to close his distance against one of the elite guards, without any chances to retaliate, would he simply catch his or her's face, and attempt to dig the head right into the earth with enough force to force the earth beneath the two to split in half for a few meters, with another tap to the 2nd guard, would only need a strong kick right against the gut, enough force to shatter his or her's ribcage with enough force packed behind the very leg of his, even with anything reinforced behind the clothing or abilities to protect him or her from the force, it would most likely knock the lights out of guard with vibrations extending all the way to his limbs to leave his muscles numb from any sort of movements. 3rd tap to vanish right against the likes of the third guard, would he proceed to shatter the skull with a punch enough to break even a reinforced metal into pieces, creating a sonic boom of recoil behind his fist when the Nightmare smashed right into the head of the guard and most likely would have enough damage to cripple one of the guard's motor function if such force is not weakened or redirected. 4th tap, an uppercut to one of the Elite Guard in an attempt to dislocate his or her's jaw which is basic enough where the dislocation of a jaw, unless they have a way to counter the pain and the paralyzing effect for dislocating it, the guard may be most likely be paralyzed and have cracks in the bone structure of the skull. 5th tap would make it more interesting for him to stand in front of the fifth Elite Guard that is closest to him and halt his movements a bit, and one of the two scenario would happen, and that is if he or she attacked him? Before the guard has the chance to leave a scratch on him, an upward kick would send the Elite Guard flying miles off to the air and most likely fall from the sky like a meteor once the guard stops flying off, and if he or she runs away? A downward kick would dig the entire stature, big or small, of the guard into the earth several feet down and hopefully, it doesn't kill the guard so easily. Sixth tap, moving at sonic speed to the 6th of the Elite Guards, from one location to another, the guard would realize that he/she would suddenly be pushed back with force, and that is him, the Nightmare, smashing his crutch right into the chest of the guard, and don't underestimate the Prototype Annihilator, where even without the Inverse Sou's strength, the weapon itself alone is wired and fused with his own chi energy to hold enough strength from his own origin to be able to hold the force that can sweep a mountain clean off of its surface without a trace of it, and all of that force that goes right against the chest of the Elite Guard can be dangerous enough to be shot off like a baseball, and leave damaging effects to the Guard's ventilation system and crush the bones in his or her chest. 7th tap and 8th tap, where both targeted Elite Guards would find themselves, well, hugging each other in a way where one of the guard would suddenly be forced by something, or someone, pushing his/her body at unimaginable speed only to found him/herself to be smashed right into the body of another guard's, like a ragdoll being thrown right at someone, and crushed right into the earth onto the body of another person with a force as if a building fell right upon the body of the two guards, one from the force of his throw, and the other was the velocity of the body which he threw down at the likes of the guard, saving his time to deal with them one by one, a 'double kill', it seemed.
Having a few guards left, tapping his feet for the 9th time, one of the remaining guard would find him or herself jabbed in the chest, not with force, but vibrations surging throughout the physical body that would seem to have a crippling effect to leave minor damage externally, but internally? These vibrations hold 'information' and force that would force the muscles of the Elite Guard to shrink down, and using what is in his photographic memory, the attempts of cutting off his energy source by the Iramasha? He applies that source of information that he was able to calculation for just a moment, and solve that puzzle by applying some of his own methods in temporarily crippling the chaos energy supply that the Elite Guard has that connects to their limbs to paralyze their movements, and these vibrations are the ones restricting those energy that flows in the Guard's body by compressing the reishi provided in his surroundings from Cirno's energy that freezes the air around him, into the compression of air in his fingertips and jabbing right against the guard's chest would force that energy to vibrate along with the vibrations, effectively 'injecting' that reishi and just from altering the 'information' he has in the vibrations, he can make use of the reishi around him, even in very little volumes, it was enough to cripple the Elite Guard from both movements and the usage of energy for a temporary time, that even using any methods of healing such as the phoenix's tears that one of the Iramasha has won't cut for it, because even if it cleanses the reishi that he used, the vibrations and muscles that holds nothing that can be considered 'foreign' in energy or physical means to negate the effect, making healing hard for this guard. With the 10th tap to one of the Elite Guards, same method is applied to what he did previously, but this one is more interesting, where all that energy doesn't cripple his/her energy, but creating a concentrated force where this time, he jabs right into the forehead of the 10th Elite Guard, puncturing right into the skull of the guard, making use of vibrations and the reishi, if still existent, around him, that punctures right through his/her skull and into the brain, would induce some unsatisfying effects for a few minutes to a few hours depending on the guard's state, would have his/her ability to use chaos energy to either dull or become completely unusable under the guard's control, and that is because the part of the brain where it governs calculative abilities is temporarily shut off from the functions of which the guard can utilize it, and even if he/she can use it, it would become unstable and would most likely not follow its bidding, and the ability to use speech/language would most likely be impacted considering the frontal part of the brain is affected from his attempts to cripple the individual for temporary amount of time where the guard would not be able to speak or even understand the words of those around him or her. For the 11th tap, this is fairly simple, and that is smashing the tip of his crutch into the guts of the Elite Guard, twist it and smashing right against the gut for the 2nd time, would unleash a blast of vibration that goes together with it would most likely cause him/her to vomit blood and cause breathing difficulties that may otherwise affect the combat ability of the guard. Finally, the last Elite Guard on the line with his 12th tap, with specially-prepared assault for the final guard, creating vibrations to his knuckles, once his fist smashes right into the face of the individual, the last Elite Guard that may be standing in the battlefield, would experience something special, the freezing of his/her head. How? Once his fist crashes right into the face of the Elite Guard, a compression would occur because of the quick enclosure of the space between his fist and the Guard, and once the victim falls back and creates an open space again between his fist and the Guard, would force a quick compression of air which if there is still reishi around him, would make use of the effect that it was created for, and compressing it would make the compressed area colder than his surroundings into a ball of ice cold air, and? The force that his fist unleashes would blast the ice cold air into a form of blast in the pressurized air that his fist unleashed together with a force of vibration, leaving a cold, icy effect to the last of the Elite Guard's head into a statue that won't kill the individual, but leave him/her scarred permanently at this point. No mercy in this state, because its a matter of life and death when it comes to dealing with someone who wants to destroy the core, and he won't allow it if it means to kill these weaklings who thinks they can win him with numbers without sufficient firepower to deal against him. What laughter, just having 12 of them and firepower of a Vice Captain would have them think that it can overwhelm him that quickly. Well, not as easy as they think now, that if he slowly drop their numbers to 0 within the time limit, it won't be that formidable now.
However, his legs weren't doing as well. Considering that he is moving beyond his own limits using his own strength, it had scratches and wounds across his legs, flesh wide open and visible for sight, while seemingly tremble a little bit to show that his legs was stressing out from the feats he had done. Even for a human like him, stress can take toll to his physical body and he was no exception from those drawbacks for moving a few times the speed of sound in a body like his. Spitting blood from his previous wounds, he couldn't help but to mock what's left in this battlefield, how reliant she was in her allies to overwhelm him. Leadership? Not dying? Pathetic, full of words but a load of bullshit. Laughing manically across the land, how much he couldn't hold back only to sprout his own sentences from his words in her.. 'attempts'. "AHAHAHAHA! Pathetic! Shitheads like you, to have me cripple them that i don't even know if they can even be functional the next day. Ahhhh! Whatever. I'll just kill you and that's the end of it today, kid. Don't try to involve what you can't even protect, especially when you're just facing the Nightmare himself. Now then, TIME TO END THIS N-.."
Only to about to finish his sentence, he suddenly.. screamed? What happened? Well, while she is setting up the barrier against him, the Inverse stopped his sentence from promptly finishing, and why? Because the blast of lights that he took earlier ago, which she tried to purge his negativity and chaotic nature was somehow.. effective? But its effects seem to rush in after awhile considering how mentally reinforced he was against his original self. Yes, despite his 'original' being dead, his remains do still live on, which means his consciousness is still somewhat alive, and in extreme cases, only the remains of his persona would emerge. The purification that the Iramasha has done left a huge mental strain to the Inverse's mind, being 'raided' by the original's mind was enough to begin driving him insane. The 'light' that the original once seeked, an open path would only allow that mind to flow right into the Inverse's consciousness when he existed. Even if his soul is destroyed, not the consciousness of his remains that still makes the Nightmare, 'him'. What makes him so different from the rest of the Inverse is because he didn't care his 'people', only carrying out his duties and existence to protect the 'core' because that is what makes him 'alive', and if the core lives, he can replace his original self whom died of being killed by the Beast. It was driving him insane, his mind suddenly filled with anger as if he was mentally attacked, and this is where things just suddenly went south. Mentally fighting against the consciousness of the original, would leave the Inverse to the state where he becomes mentally and emotionally unstable. This is the symptoms of a 'mental takeover', seemingly theorized where his original self, whom died, seem to try to temporarily take over the persona and consciousness of his Inverse, which makes him slightly different from the rest as his originator died, and the only way he can be 'alive' is to access through a living vessel that is completely identical to his as long as his 'energy' still lives somewhere on Earth. And it.. happened. Considering that his 'essence' is still presumably alive, his will does still continue on, of when he could interrupt the thoughts of his Inverse and seemingly, enough to deal a mental damage against the Inverse. This was the 'light' of the Nightmare, to destroy what isn't 'him', and that, the Iramasha, opened up the path to it.
"AGHHHHHH! STOP MESSING MY BRAINS AROUND. YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD! AGH! FUCKING BRAT. I'LL KILL YOU UNTIL YOU DON'T EVEN EXIST ANYMORE. AGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"
[ CHANGE SOUNDTRACK]
While on a mental assault, the pressure around him seems to ominously fluctuate for no apparent reason, with killing intent seemingly going on and off like a broken switch, however, it was known enough to understand that within the fluctuating pressure, a third party is involved, right here, and right now. Losing control over the pressure he emits for its fluctuation, the pressure his body unleashes can be considered chaotic in many ways, to the point where fires seems to randomly spark here and there, sometimes combusting into a huge volumes of flames before extinguishing almost instantly in random places, and that is the frictional force caused by the pressure his body was unleashing. Even the individual named Ophelia, whom Inverse that is previously unaffected by his pressure, would suddenly experience the crushing gravity that befalls upon her body, most likely hyperventilating and would be thrown off of her thoughts. The reasons are unknown, but it is simple enough to say that the nature of his pressure seems to be changing drastically, not human, not a demon, not an angel, not magic, none of it. The pressure he emits was nothing of any nature that can be known, and it may the effects of his mental state that causes the pressure to run wild and begin to alter its own 'information', but how it was able to do so is still unknown as it seems to function by his own will. However, it is clear that the pressure his body unleashes was just.. chaotic, so powerful to the point where his surroundings seems to become heavily distorted and the view around him becomes twisted of light. It is clear that his mind is battling it out, and it isn't an easy task. From this point, small black wings seems to sprout from his body, causing the chi energy within him to suddenly spike and explode into shockwaves that would ultimately destroy his surroundings into an explosive force, and running rampant from this point forward. Undergoing sudden changes in temper and combat style, he is basically like a berserker that differs greatly from his usual calm self in this fight a few seconds ago. He currently now is more of a threat than he was before, and being mentally unstable, he is a real threat to deal with as the mental fight he has to go through with willpower against the mind of his originator.
However, his body is in the verge between awakening and his base state, for his pressure and chi energy to fluctuate uncontrollably, turning his body into that of a special case's, a body that is in the state of half-awakening, which normally, chi humans have two states, one is awakening and the last stage is full awakening, but in his case, he is in the process of going through the first stage, the awakening, however, the fluctuation of energy and the unstability of his mental state caused his body to become unsure of whether or not it should go through the process of awakening or stick to his base state, causing it to go through halfway and hence, the incomplete or half-awakening that his body decides to fluctuate between his base state and normal awakening. This may be the reason why the pressure that his body emits seems to be odd, with a third party involved and the state he is going through which caused such special effects to his pressure, to the point where even the previously unaffected individual such as the Inverse Ophelia to be influenced under the effects of his own pressure. But it won't be long for the barrier to hold him back any longer, with his fluctuating pressure to be exploding with an overwhelming power that can go as much as forcing cracks to the barrier that she set up with such hardwork, but it ends here. With his bare hands extending towards the barrier, the Inverse intends to attempt to rip apart the barrier into two, his unstable mental condition which fueled his entire being with nothing but anger and the undeciding emotion between anger and the 'light', he didn't know whether he wanted to kill or not, leaving him no choice but to drop down all of his rational thoughts of his own survival and begin his own fight within his mind while leaving his physical and mental condition, currently, into rampage. Screeching with his voice going through anger, would only have him to try and use all of his might to splitting open the entire barrier, yes, ripping the entire 100 foot perimeter wide barrier into two, and all with his attempts to use his bare hands and strength alone. If that failed? With just a punch, he can unleash force enough to wipe out one of Australia's city with that amount of force he unleashed to completely turn the barrier into pieces of its remains.
He wasn't sure what he was doing anymore from here on out, but one thing, what they are dealing with is the threat. Yes, the 'purification' that Cirno used against him did succeed but the results is different from what she may have imagined, where the only cause was destruction and forcing his mind to break down into an array of confusion and battle between the Inverse and his originator of who's in control of the body. Which it came to the point where it was a bad idea when Aish approached him with her fist covered with blue flames in an attempt to crush his skull. His unstable mental state and the pressure he was emitting was enough to tell everyone that he is bad news starting from here when the purification took its desired effect and heavily affected his mental state. Catching her fist with his right hand, he didn't care whether or not it burns away his hand or not, leaving the damage and pain for him to bear, all his current mind desires is the destruction of these shitheads that picked him as their opponent, and without even a second for Aish to even time her chaos warp away from him, he would proceed to grip his hand tighter against the fiery fist and creates a huge BOOM of vibrations which would not only crush the bones in her entire arm, it has a high chance to completely extinguishing the blue flames that she is capable of summoning and shut away her ability to use it for awhile, and that is thanks to his altered method of cutting away energy supply that the body has when he obtained a small portion of the information when it was used against him. But with his mental state, the calculations were all messed up, having his body to rely on instinct to have her energy supply cut off. First, if her flames allowed her to phase through his body and hit him internally at the same time, why didn't it phase through? Simple, and that is creating a wall of chi energy before his palm, and when her fist runs across the air and against his fist, the chi energy would distribute into a wall of energy, where the fist would go right past it, which electrical charges no longer seem to matter to him any longer, using the wall of chi energy to lock as a barrier against the blue flames and made alterations to the surroundings around his hand to suit the wavelength that the energy locked into, allowing him to catch it without the worries of it phasing through his hand by matching the energy wavelength between the surroundings of his hand and the blue flames to create a 'solid interaction' between his hand and the fist of hers.
Another thing, how is he able to cancel out the flames and lock away her capability to use for temporary period of time? Knowing how annoying the phoenix can be, the boom of vibration he made to crush her arm was to target her soul directly, and using what he had learnt from Cirno through his photographic memory, a little alteration was he able to induce sealing effects that prevents her from being able to use her blue flames again. That, which hopefully it could throw out her focus by having her experience the pain of having her entire arm crushed into pieces by its bones, and have her soul being assaulted by having his chi energy to blast right into her soul, and through the usage of injection, her powers would mostly be momentarily sealed away from being usable for a set amount of time. Annoyance to the phoenix, he had added a short countermeasure as long as it lasts, is that healing her would be proven a hassle, even the phoenix tears, would only further her pain if they intend to purge the seal to use her powers again, and that would be adding the feeling of being burned alive to those who tries to purify, heal or even try to remove the effects which he used against her. It reacts in such a way which any outside energy or healing that occurs, within that layer of flesh or skin which healing occurs, like a virus, using the chi energy that is locked against her soul, would rush to that area and distribute something similar to an allergy reaction, which the chi energy on the area that the healing occurs would create a barrier of energy, and alter its state to turn into the opposite wavelength of the surrounding energy that attempts to heal or purify her body, rejecting the said energy and have her experience pain through the burns of the specific area as the wall of barrier whirs like a chainsaw due having to react with the opposite wavelength as an effect. Interesting, isn't it?
With that done, he didn't hesitate to proceed his assault against Cirno on his currently unstable mental state. Nothing to talk about, all he wanted was to destroy. Not to forget to mention, even at his current empowered state, it doesn't mean that the stress he had earlier ago when he was stable didn't take toll to his body as it is still there, which is enough to tell that if they strike in the right places at the right time, it can leave some strong effect on him physically and probably, stop all of this, but one thing; it won't be that easy. This time, however, he will be much faster than they may think. Without having his chi energy play the role, his strength was enough for him to maneuver like a fighter jet, with a stomp, was enough to break apart his surroundings and form a crater beneath his feet before appearing before the likes of Cirno as if he just.. teleported? But that is just the distortion of light around him, and his stomp creates pressure that further distorts the light to have him appear as if he just vanished, but its just that he moves.. ridiculously fast by using the air pressure he creates with his strength.
Hoping to catch Cirno's face with his bare hand, a huge burst of electricity would explode from his hand, relentlessly attempting to shock her with voltage higher to that of a lightning, far surpassing to the voltage that a lightning can unleash, it was enough for his hand to tell it to her face that he wasn't joking around at this point. Having a mental fight against the consciousness of his originator, and a fist-to-fist fight against them? He wasn't tolerating any of that at all, and throwing a fit of insanity that runs in his mind, destruction serves up the plate. With voltage of such an extent, it wouldn't kill her right off the bat, but leaving damages to her entire body, both internally and externally, as the electricity surging across her body, especially her head would leave some damaging effects to her ability to be able to think rationally and leave a temporary impact to her powers as long as it can last for the time being. But the main focus of why he released so much electricity was to damage her to the point of not being able to move any longer, to numb out the muscles of her body to weaken her strength, temporarily overloading her body's nerves and causing a paralysis effect to her physical body, and ultimately force some parts of her body to split open wounds that may somewhat be either minor to severe. All of that power, in exchange, his entire arm would go through some serious effect. On its already-damaged state which considered is very severe considering how burnt-out it was, to be pushed further to an extent caused his entire left arm to explode into a splash of blood, painting the ground full of his own blood that spilled as it exploded into nothing but blood after forcing the limits of his arm that went through too much damages.
If such attempts failed? Well, not only his arm would be spared from the hassle of having blood spilled, since if anything went wrong, the voltage that he unleashed would be thrown off the focus, and causing the electricity to weaken down to an extent. Despite his mental breakdown and all of the rage flowing through his head, it didn't stop at nothing to make sure his body takes as little damage as possible. His fists, however, doesn't have to take the spotlight all of the time. Tapping his feet to move at fast speed to close the possible shorten distances between himself and Cirno, he would strike his crutch downward against the head of the Iramasha from above, and not with just the strength of the weapon itself, but with his muscles to cover the entirety of the crutch with vibrations of his strength, all of that force that collapses against the Iramasha's body would have a relentless force with force of a full-brunt assault with the force enough for him to rival against a meteor explosion, and even so, that wasn't even the full extent of his strength that he can unleash but it has a huge strain of his left arm, which that is if his attempts to shock her with high voltage fails, would be crippled from the recoil of his strength, and if he had lost his left arm, his right arm which is still at a healthy state can take all of the recoil that it can take from his strength, but leaving quite the strain to his muscles and would most likely find his punches weaker than usual, but still packs more punches than they think. Now, how the Iramasha fares off with his assault depends on how she deals with it, whether she lives or dies falls to how she acts.
With the rest of the people? Making use of what his incomplete awakening can do, he didn't want to waste so much time, than compressing the air above him to obliterate everything that stands in his way. Yes, still being mentally unstable, the compression itself was unstable too, compressing and breaking apart at the same time, blasts of plasma energy would unleash upon the plants, and even its creator, Aki Iramasha, and that blast alone was already sufficient enough. Using the unstable compressed state of the plasma, it meant that the chi energy within the plasma wasn't doing well either, and by firing a plasma, he would be able to throw off the balance that allowed the compression of the plasma, forcing it to overload within the blast, breaking the 'energy' within the plasma apart on a sub-atomic level, and somehow, reconverting its existence into another source of energy, and that, using the unstable matter that the chi energy is going through within the blast, allowed him to create nuclear energy when the particles of chi energy grew unstable and out of sync as it is meddled with, into a lump of nuclear energy that would only make the blast even more powerful, itself having enough firepower on a singular blast to rip apart anything within its vicinity, having enough firepower that can stand right between a Gran Rey Cero and Cero Oscuras fired by an Espada, alone can destroy the likes of the Iramasha at some point. However, you don't think that there is no price in creating such massive firepower from his powers, especially when the side effects of undergoing a half-awakening state is his physical body breaking apart, and having a mental fight with the originator would only sometimes null a few of his actions and weaken his attacks at some point. Being greatly drained from creating such blast, it didn't take long for him to recover on his feet and continue his final brunt of assault against Ophelia, and that? It was a surprise in store for them.
Another compression between the Inverse Ophelia and the real one, yes, an orb of energy, but there is something different about it. Since his calculations are heavily thrown off of the map in his current state, all he could do was to create another unstable ball of plasma? No, it wasn't plasma any longer, but a ball of energy that contained.. various of otherworldly things that isn't of this origin of the dimension that all of them live in, and that's because the 'function' it had was undecided, which went the way he wanted it to destroy them. Making use of the otherworldly energy in the compressed orb since in his half-awakening state, he has the ability to create Imaginary Plasma, an energy that he can create and assign it into any function he wanted to have, and with wonders that if he didn't assign anything to its imaginary state of his unstable mind, what will happen, and this was the result of it. Creating from another dimension of sorts was its contained energy that nothing can ever explain, together with its unstable state, it would keep converting the energy within into another random state of energy, whether if it is a universal energy, nuclear energy, kinetic energy, any energy that it can convert into in a random state of conversion, would begin to have the orb 'collapse', by compressing even more and more until it reaches the state of singularity, a point of 'it' being one thing, and nothing else than 'itself', and by then, it unleashes an explosion of various energy, wiping out anything within several miles from where it exploded, while the rest of the people within the battlefield will be left with minor injuries, he created it where it is the closest to the Inverse Ophelia and the real one, where they will be receive the full power of an explosion of different energies created from an unstable singularity that is capable of wiping out existence of the spiritually-weak within several miles, while the rest that is close to the explosion will be severely wounded with shattered ribcage, losing a limb or two and enough to burn them into crisp where they would either be temporarily or permanently crippled mentally or physically, making this explosion one of the most dangerous ones he had made that is created in an unstable state. It can be much more powerful, but his current mental state made it impossible to do all of the proper calculations to make it even powerful, so he has to go with it with something weaker.
Stepping away from all of the opponents in the battlefield, fatigue and pain all came rushing in as he kneeled down against the ground with his hands held against his head, knowing that all of the stress, pain and fatigue that he used his energy to deal against all of them in a single shot was.. well, a horrible idea to how his mind is going through right now. Becoming heavily vulnerable to attacks currently for a moment before he regains his composure and continue fighting with only insanity covering his mind that is battling the originator from taking over his consciousness, it was easy to tell that he was not doing well mentally, and all of the physical strains to his body made it worse than it should be at this point. BUT! Again, even at his currently weakened state both physically and mentally, it is better to put up a guard against him, even at his weakest, it doesn't mean that he won't be able to defend himself, considering that if he can fight when he is crippled, this is enough to tell the tale that he can fight even if he runs out of stamina, mentally strained or even physically exhausted. In all honesty, just about nothing in this world can stop the Nightmare for fighting, so its better to put up guard against him, especially despite being heavily worn out, his black wings seems to be going strong, his body continued to emit ominous pressure that continuously fluctuates, and in his current state of exhaustion, he can still emit overwhelming level of pressure and seemingly contain almost terrifying levels of chi energy within his incomplete awakening state. This is what happens when you pushed one's mind too far into the corner after 'purifying' him, and things would seem to jump-start when the wrong button is pushed. Groaning from wave after wave of pain going through his head, with his wounded body, and damages from previous attacks taking toll against his physical state, he can still fight, like a tank that can soak things up like a sponge and still going strong. Up and away, his crimson red eyes would stare right at each and every opponent of his, to tell them that he means business if they dare to get close to him at times like this because on the other side of the coin, he wouldn't want to harm them with the pathetic sight he is in right now. The 'light' seems to open up for the Inverse, but the dark persona of the originator didn't want such hindrance to be affecting his combat abilities so much, to be able to do so much without needing to worry about 'human feelings', would ensure his survival at the fullest in the battlefield. So, why? Why does a human, his originator, who died, can still fight against him even after death for control of the Inverse. Just simply, why? How? Does human will that powerful against him? Agh!
Earth seems to shake, crack as rubbles and pebbles rose from the earth by the distorting light that surrounds him. Full of insanity, driven by the gears of unknown, doubt and disbelief of human will, in what way is he inferior to his original self? Cackling of electricity begin surging outward from his body, as this human, no, this.. being, is just almost becoming more and more mysterious the way he is right now. Panting heavily from all the stress he has to endure in this hell of a mental battle between individuals whether or not if either of them has the control over the flesh and bone of this living vessel for two people, the Inverse and the original Sou. It was just typically insane, and if any of them had the guts to attack him at this state? All they would have to meet is energy that seems to sap the chi energy from his very being to construct energy blasts to either destroy hostile beings, or barriers against incoming attack, akin to as if the atmosphere that surrounds him grew mind of its own to defend its host like a passive defensive field that protects its user. With how unstable his mental state grew, strange things seems to happen around him even more. Either way, this defensive field won't be up for long once the Inverse snaps back into reality when he regains his own composure, only just that time is needed to hold himself back together to continue this battle. He can't waste his time any longer to fight them.
"You little shits.. I don't know what you brats did to me to have this shithead invade what's rightfully mine, but what i know that i'll kill all of you when i'm done with this. AGHHHH! I'll make sure to send all of you back to where you came from, and you bet that for sure!"
Once he regains his composure a few moments later? He would stand up again, however, still having an unstable state of mind, the pressure his body unleashes still runs wild and strong, an indication to tell them that he isn't easily done in yet and is prepared to take in blows against his insanity. Well, it is a matter of time before a conclusion is drawn in this battlefield, but he'll definitely make sure to 'take care' of them through destruction and have his own personal business dealt with in this battle. The Nightmare doesn't go down that easily!

It was with wide eyes that Aki looked up as her plants were shredded apart by the man known as Sou Yuuki, her blast of force doing damage to his hand but not enough to turn the tides to much. No, it was the next action that surprised her the most. As the microscopic needles made out of pure force shot in to his arm, traveling up it towards his heart, something other then what she had expected happened. Within the body of Sou Yuuki, electrical pulses sent throughout it tried to expel the intruding material, but despite the fact that force had an effect on the outside world, it was not physical itself. Instead of rending the force attack from his body, this countermeasure started to rend the Nightmare's arm apart. bones, tendonds, muscle, and skin would be ripped apart as the attack traveled onward. With this, his own defenses would rip apart the arm that had been infiltrated, the needles following their path onward until they reached his elbow. At this point the true weakness of Aki was revealed, the weakness of control. With a big WHUMPH, several of these force attacks collided with each other within the elbow, causing the attacking force to shatter and explode outwards, no longer under the control of the angel iramasha. With this, it was likely that Sou would sustain damage to his elbow, but it was unlikely to be significant.
What was significant was that the man had thrown her own blast back at her, what a fool he was. A few of the plants she had summoned forth sprung between her and the blast off force, using themselves as a shield against the attack that came towards her. With the blast hitting them, splinters of wood and vine scattered outwards, but the blast, having lost most of its power already, was finished. Watching her fellow iramasha's actions, she saw as the man was smacked off by Cirno, heading with incredible force towards the ground. Moving quickly, multiple Aconite plants sprung from the ground, their vines creating a net which placed itself in the path of the falling Sou Yuuki. Empowered by the spiritual energy of the plant iramasha, they would be protected from the shredding aura that had dealt with her previous plants.
The second that Sou Yuuki touched these plants, something would change within his body. His hands, arms and neck would feel numb, the attempts to purge the poison with his bio-electrical system would fail entirely. Why? Well, simple. The first thing that aconite poison does upon entering the body through skin contact was numb the area, stopping the nerves, the very backbone of this electrical system, to stop working. Without the flow of bio-electricity to the area, it was not possible to purge it by using this sort of system. As it traveled further through his body, the speed of its contamination of his body only speeded up by the fact that he was in combat and moving at horrendous speeds, more of his body would numb and stop responding to his commands, his arms unable to move and his breathing becoming harder. The more that Sou Yuuki moved, the closer he came to the death of his body. Soon it would be a death's door, and it would be a surprise if he didn't notice the difficulty he was soon going to have breathing as his heart and lungs slowly became paralyzed by the deadly poison that had entered his body, the way it carried itself through his body making it immune to his defenses against poisons.
Meanwhile, Sou was still on the move, attacking others, and eventually he turned upon her. The panting form of Aki Iramasha, her eyes swimming as she stumbled slightly, the toll of maintaIning her current form slowly getting to her. Watching through half closed eyes as a blast made its way towards her, knowing that the telekinetic force she could generate would not be enough to save her, nor could her plants do much against the blast, she decided a quick decision. Forgetting about the Iramasha sync, meaning any iramasha connected to her could her her argument, she turned inward to the being that lived in her, the parasite that was the source of her telekinetic powers.
'Take it! Take it all! You need to take my psyche, meld with it and take over!'
The reply that came back was hesitant, weak and worried, not wanting to do what it was being told.
'But if I do that... you'll... you'll be gone... I don't want to lose you...'
The responce was harsh, demanding, something that went against everything that Aki stood for, but she would make sure one of them lived on.
'God damn it, we're both going to die if you don't do it, at least you'll survive this way! Now do it, take and meld with my psyche!'
Seconds after that command, every iramasha that was connected to her by iramasha sync felt a snap as Aki was forcefully separated from them, the mind of Aki being devoured and merged with the psychic parasite that had inhabited it for so long. Moments later the form of Aki let out a horrible, soul rending screach, tears flowing the now purple and black eyes, energy blazing around her in the rage of the beast that she had become. Looking up at the blast heading towards the body of the being, sheer rage and willpower flowed throughout whatever this new being was. With a snap, the air around the blast seemed to still, holding it in place, before with a roar the enraged being's mind pushed, and the blast shot backwards, reverting in course towards the one that the being was battling. Stepping forward, her form seemed to slowly shift and change, the body of Aki Iramasha slowly taking on the form of the new mind within it. Her hands elongated, becoming like giant black crab claws, her arms extending upwards, reddish skin covered with black chitinous plating. The head went downward, mergin with her body, eye sockets becoming empty except for two blue shining points of light. Hair shrunk back in to her head, many smaller eyes covering the widened forehead and chitinous plating covering other areas of the head. Below her former arms, six new appendages, three on each side, grew forth from her sides, like thinner, weaker normal arms. Her breasts shrunk in to her chest, legs fusing together as chitin began covering her front, her stomack and legs becoming a long tail like appendage as the maw on the beast let out another crying screech. Growing in size, now standing at eight feet tall with her tail length doubling that, the being slithered forward, blue eye dots blazing with fury. The being from another dimension, the parasite that had lived within the head of Aki the angel iramasha, was now here to repay Sou Yuuki for his crimes. Opening its maw wide, it took a deep rattling breath, and suddenly each person upon the battlefield would feel as if their brains were being liquified and pulled from their heads unless they had an extremely high willpower or focus. None of them would be permanently injured, the only thing that Quora Tomaka was doing was stealing their mental energies, the very basis of the psychic abilities that this being used. Raising one of its pincers, rage boiling within its being, Sou Yuuki would suddenly feel as he was being smashed in to the ground with the force of dozens of freight trains, the sheer force of the being's desctructive telekinetic attacks attempting to pound the being in to pulp, rip his existence apart, and make sure not even one atom of his being stayed bound to another. So, his assault included blasts of widespread crushing forces, thousands of telekinetic blades meant to slice his body to nothing, and finally a barrage of thousands of mallets made of force, meant to pulp the very flesh that made him.
Letting the final bit of phsychic energy in to his assaults, Quora Tomaka turned the blue points of light that made his eyes upon Cirno Iramasha, a few words whispering through the minds of the ice iramasha.
'Take good care of her, please.'
And the body changed, her body returning to its previous form, and fell to the ground. For the parasite had not done what had been asked of it. Instead of absorbing and merging with the girl's psyche, performing a full and complete take over, it had devoured most of her psyche, leaving only a sliver left. With no resistance left from the mind of the girl, he had taken over her body, using every bit of its power to assault the man who wished to protect this place, and with the last bit of psychi energies that made up his being, he had sent his message to Cirno and reverted the body back to its former self. Quora Tomaka was dead and gone, and his former host Aki was unconcious upon the ground of the battlefield. Stuck within a coma from losing the majority of her psyche, it would likely be a while before she awoke, and what she would be like at that time was anyones guess.

[adm]To speed things along, I have one to two weeks in order to get Cirno's post out. If not, then you guys can skip me and go ahead with causing whatever damage is needed upon her.[/adm]

[adm]Eh, sorry for the shitty delay. I'm still just having problems with muse for this thread. Mainly because we've moved on so far past the Black World Arc I kind of forgot the frame of mind Cirno was in for this. With that said, I also feel we'll still be waiting since Cookies was on a temp leave anyway, so I'll try to get my post out whenever. I still intend to post, but the black world honestly isn't on my highest of priorities right now in terms of posting. Especially the amount of energy I'll need for a post this long that could be spent elsewhere on forward moving threads. If you aren't fine with that, then I'd request an off-screen ending to conclude things.[/adm]

[adm]Eh, I'm locking out this thread. Partly because I've lost interest in going on with the Black World event, and because of how long it has dragged out. We can discuss out how it concluded here if you guys want, otherwise I'm assuming that it resulted in the Yang being destroyed in the conflict with this thread among its 0 tiers. After it was destroyed, the world could have started decaying and all sides would have fled.
