Zero pouted. What else could she do when her answer was proven to be wrong? Argue her case? She could most definitely do that, but that would take all day given how darn stubborn she was. No, she would simply accept the fact that she was wrong whilst making a mental note to supply the hunters with candy if she ever got her hands on time travel. She was satisfied that she got a smile out of the other female and a laugh out of the red-haired male. She couldn’t be ‘upset’ when the two had been amused by her answer. So, a mischievous smile graced her face and she adjusted her scarf before interlocking her fingers behind her back once again.
She didn’t make a mental note of the male’s allergy like she normally would’ve - Zero was really good at remembering weaknesses - not because she thought it useless, but because she could not bring herself to believe he was genuinely allergic. In her most humble opinion, no one was allergic to candy, it was simply impossible with the variety out there. Besides, he looked like the sort of person who indulged in sugary treats more than he should and she was the same way. It was pretty much a miracle that she hadn’t died of a sugar overdose yet, but the thought of the doctors ruling her cause of death as an over overconsumption of sugar amused her greatly - it got a soft chuckle out of her.
Though she wished to wander her thoughts for a little longer in the hopes of finding something else amusing - which was bound to happen - she dragged herself from her reveries and into the present moment. Zero didn’t think she missed anything, having caught snippets of their instructions whilst she had been partially immersed in her thoughts. If she did, well watching the other two would be enough to fill her in on the specifics of their task. So, instead of charging in first, she decided to hang back and see what the other two intended to do. With the talks of teamwork, she expected her two peers to huddle together and construct an overcomplicated or simplistic plan. One that sounded like a good idea, but would ultimately fall short - she wasn’t about to think of the many reasons any plan constructed by the two would go wrong.
Now, one would suggest the success rate of a plan made by two people would be increased with the addition of the third, but they would be wrong in this case. Zero wasn’t the sort of person to follow plans very well for she was prone to doing stuff on a whim. This wasn’t to say that she wouldn’t cooperate with her partners, but that she would probably forgo the plan entirely in exchange for some fun. Coupled with her selective memory and there was a good chance that she would forget whatever plan was made. But, it didn’t seem like talking to one another would come into play just yet.
The other female decided that she would be taking the initiative and attack their red-haired teacher first. If she was capable of it, Zero may have been surprised that she of all people had gone first. The brunette had expected the male of the group to strike first, but this was good either way. Not only did she get a glimpse of the power the female had possession of, she also got a glimpse of her strategy. She, Zero, believed that it would fail though, but an A for effort was something she was willing to give the female.
Zero would see the result of her assault though before deciding to carry on with her own. The ‘plan’ had already been formulated in her head and it would be tweaked depending on several factors. But, the basic gist involved fire, some lightning, candy, and maybe a flaming tornado. Was she concerned about her partners being caught by her own assault? Not at all. If they had an ounce of common sense, they would move and if they did get caught it wasn’t her fault.

Ah combat the thing Hayden was bred for. Maybe not literally but at this point it was his calling.
Hayden watched as his allies all made their actions with actually he simply processed it at a higher speed to allow him some time to react in unison. He worked well with Ash to say the least so Hayden’s body tense as he heard the ripping of air; dropping to the ground in a kneel as his hand came downwards smashing against the ground causing a poof of black smoke. Hayden body naturally produces and exhales death matter but as his adrenaline kicked it that output increased allowing him to manipulate the passive essence of death within the area; the first set of actions he would taking was forming a box like structure around Kamui that faced only where the rift was being made. Depending on if the whip struck or not would determine his next action for despite all of that the box would cave in if he was attempting to dodge it forming around him then exploding rather violently. He believed the man could handle it as it would be a level of power even weaker tier soldiers could walk away from. The true benefit to this was the speed of which the box was forming- matching that of Ash rift if not a wee bit faster.
It was strange to be working in a team after so many years of playing the lone soldier, but he welcomed it adapting his ruthless fighting style to something reformed for his team mates. Despite being a massive brute and hulking fighter he was able to play support when he needed to; however he still held a trick or two up his sleeves. His eyes snapped to the new comer briefly to see she hadn’t done anything yet but that was fine by Hayden standards perhaps they were coming up with something to help this small battle. You could never be too sure when dealing with wildcards and she seemed like one, yet if she failed to act or acted in a way detrimental to the team Hayden would tell her their mistakes later. His eyes immediately snapped back to the task at hand. His team would preserve through this and they would come back stronger and meaner than ever- they would travel uncharted territory. This wasn’t a matter of being humble no more; Hayden had gotten a spark recently and he intended to burn brightly enough for his team mates to also burn.
Yet it appeared the girl did send something which was send a tornado of flame towards Kamui, a big whirl to say the least but should it hit the fire it would heat the black substance causing it to begin to warm but the effect would be the same all together. Luckily Hayden was not in the way of due to him being off to the side but it would fly by him dangerously close yet he was safe- that was a risky move he would talk to her later about. It was unwise to bring friends within harms way.
Now if the man decided he could go underground there was a secondary trap their for the dirt underneath by Hayden’s will was being converted to a sticky black substance to snap the man; perhaps even corrupt their skin a bit. Now Hayden wasn’t the fastest in the world but his control over this long lost element and his natural speed was able to keep up with most as he focused his brain to operate at a higher capacity to increase the speed in which he operated this small functions. It was useful being able to change how one’s body worked through sheer focus and will power but right now he was simply trying to process information faster than their teacher while also setting up a trap his allies could use. Their was only one true way Kamui could head without getting snagged and that was towards Ashes whip made of flesh. Such a strange thing.
While all of this was happening he had the brief moment to reflect on the situation and his team mates, his brain hyped up on natural processing power had made a few conclusions. The wild card as he nicknamed Zero was the one he didn’t have variables for but he trusted them. He trusted his teammates unconditionally as he wouldn’t be able to operate at his peak performance if he couldn’t so for now he had to. Yet when it came to ash he had experience with them and frankly he enjoyed them- their innocence yet drive to succeed made them likeable but they also possessed a strange power set. He nicknamed them the Martyr . Now when it came to Kamui he found the man a mystery one he could either trust or hate- who was he? Why was he here? Why had he chosen him? He liked to think of him as a secondary wild card but for now in his head… he would be ‘The Strange one.’ Yet in all this chaos one may ask what Hayden called himself, what would this soldier refer to himself as? Well the answer was simple: Phenomenal. He had no more time for doubt nor to let his pride or ego restrict him; he would take solace in his achievements and make sure that he made good on what he called himself. He had to- he was the southpaw of this fight of everything in life so far. Failure for him or this team was not an option. This was his team, he would make sure they reached their goals. Together.

Kamui had not given a lot of thought to it before but it was remarkable just how his selection process had turned out. Not that they were anything especially impressive in and of themselves. They weren't and their attacks had been on the whole pretty linear. Almost textbook in a way. One attacked from sight, one attacked from the blindspot, the other tried to contain his movements. However he wasn't expecting them to fight from a textbook. He had summoned them all there expecting them to know such simple tactics and while it was certainly debatable whether or not Toki was actually adhering to any strategical processing, she seemed the type to be far more interested in doing her own thing, but that would be part of the challenge for Hayden, utilizing her properly. Would he be smart enough to do that? Maybe, but Kamui wasn't so sure. What he was sure though was that these children were playing with some dangerous forces.
The first attack came from behind him, a portal seemingly being torn through time and space was easy enough to sense, the energy required for such a feat wasn't exactly subtle, but there was something peculiar about it. It wasn't a naturally developing power, it was in and of itself natural but the effect itself was not merely willed in to existence. It was magic, interesting. Was young Ash a magician or was he/she/it simply tossing magical energies around without realizing it? It was going to be an interesting situation either way for the young Iramasha. However, the actual application of he/she/it's magic was a little underwhelming. He was not sure what kind of creature she was summoning from those portals, but if a single tentacle was the most Ash had at his/her/its disposal, Kamui was going to be left a little disappointed. Kamui swung his umbrella up to rest on his shoulder as the tentacle whipped through the air toward him and then, just as it moved to hit the umbrella...it suddenly was not moving any longer. Multiple explosions fired off a long the length of the tentacle, rapidly shifting its orientation as it was, literally, blown away from Kamui's torso as the magic flew from the man's umbrella, removing the threat of Ash's attack entirely. The nature of it was both concerning and incredibly interesting to Kamui. The tentacle wasn't of any Earth species, even animals had chi and what Kamui had sensed was definitely not Chi. There wasn't anything in the Sugiuran world for it either...so what exactly had he tried to hit him with?
The thing that came next, or it should be fair to say came simultaneously, was the creeping sense of foreboding that began to rise seemingly from the ground. Kamui couldn't quite make out what it was, probably because someone had very poorly described it through what he could only assume was an impressive amount of negligence and perhaps overuse of inebriating substances, but it would seem that naught but a steady stream of blackish and purplish energy was ascending from the ground. It was strange, looking down at the energy coursing up from the ground, Kamui quickly knew it was different. It wasn't Reishi, it wasn't Za Koa, it wasn't Chaos Energy...and it definitely wasn't Chi. Whatever this was, it was an energy source he had not yet encountered and at the same time...it was malicious. Energy, in and of itself, didn't have a nature. There was no more an evil reiatsu than there was an evil gun. It had the propensity for evil, for destruction, but the thing itself was natureless, immune to morality. That's not what he felt from this darker energy. It was electric, dangerous, sinister...like it did not fit with who Hayden was...and it didn't. Thankfully however, as quick as it was it was not especially quicker than he was.
Before the encroaching firestorm and the barrier could finish enclosing, Kamui seemed to vanish entirely from the spot. Unlike the last time however, this was a simple Geppo. Launching himself straight up in the air, Kamui shot to the ceiling, escaping the enclosing dome and any other attack they had left to throw at him, rather intent on not being enclosed in whatever that was that Hayden had spewed. Kamui channeled a minute amount of chi toward the soles of his feet, keeping himself attached to the ceiling as if he were standing on solid, gravity appropriate ground. The only indication that he'd even be standing inverted if the viewing angle had shifted was that his longer hair was now dangling aimlessly below him. Then it came, a bellowing laugh. It was hilarious to him. That was not what he expected from Ash and it definitely was not what he expected from Hayden. Toki's contribution was the one he could appreciate the most, her powers did not actually seem to have any adverse effect on her, but the other two he would genuinely worry about if he was the kind to...you know...care. Did Azure know what kind of energies his seed had been dabbling in? If he did, would he really allow it? Oh what joy it would be if he did. Protecting the Earth seemed to come before everything, even his own child if this was something he endorsed. Then there was Hayden, dabbling in forces beyond his comprehension, Kamui was almost certain it would, inevitably, destroy him. It'd be enjoyable for him, for sure.
"It's hilarious. The one who is supposed to be crazy is the least likely to get herself killed out of the lot of you. If that's what I have to contend with though, I guess I'll have to try harder to defend myself. That was good for a start, weaving the strikes in consecutively is a good way to try to throw me off, but you're being too one dimensional, too direct. You're fighting someone who is in many ways your better. You're going to really have to be more creative."
Ash soon found their attack... A failure. Unable to strike the target as he defended himself rather quickly. She did take heavy notice of how he did so and was seemingly left un-phased by her attempt. Energy bursting back towards the tentacle used as it was harmed greatly and forced to disappear back into the rift it came from. Some knowledge was gained about Kamui despite the failed attack. He was incredibly fast, and extremely good at sensing attacks that soared straight towards him. The man also held an umbrella with a rather strange ability... Or did that come from him? This left the girl taking a quick breather, feet hitting the ground as she took a few steps back away from the action to watch further. The child may have been the first to strike, but that didn't mean she was foolish. The faint whispers in her head remained, but she had much more of her sanity to work with in finding out ways to strike at her new mentor without all too much issue.
Eyes narrowed further, the once happy and trivial look on her face disappeared as concern took over... The others seemed to be using fairly strong moves in order to try and strike at him. She didn't quite understand what had happened, but Kamui seemed to react almost perfectly. It was hard to keep up entirely, but whatever Hayden attempted to do was left ultimately failing like her own attack. More of Kamui's potential was shown off to the new members of this odd team. He was fast, incredibly fast... Perhaps maybe his specialty? More time would be needed, especially considering that they had just met-
A gasp escaped Ash's lips as they found themselves stumbling backwards, watching what seemed to be an inferno erupt in an attempt to cook Kamui alive. Was she crazy?! What if he had let himself get hit by that? Sure he's strong, but his clothes would be burned, what if they were his favorite? Thoughts ran through her head about why that was a bad idea to her... But soon, those thoughts were dissuaded with seeing how little Kamui seemed to care about this. Did the man want them to attack with full intent to harm? Ash was used to only trying their best when lives were on the line but... She would have to try a bit harder if that's what it took for him to even glance towards her with any form of respect.
Whispers began to make a bit more sense now... Speaking of how she had to go harder. Fight better. Draw blood. The only thing that reinforced the whispers was Kamui responding to all of them with words, almost taunting. There was a compliment hidden away in there, but it still didn't sit well with her. Her body began to tense up, Shogi revealing itself on her shoulder. The small blob ready to act as a form of defense for Ash if she needed it, and she most certainly would at this point in time. Fingers clenched into fists as she stared straight ahead. The same look of concern was on her face as it became exceedingly obvious t hat she was the type to prefer pacifism. Talking first instead of violence...
But even she needed to act out every so often. Dark energies began to swirl around her body, the conduit needed to harness the strength that her source could provide. Ash knew she wasn't a good solo fighter, and worked best with a team. That's what this was... So her goal now was to set Kamui up in a favorable position for the group. The new girl's destructive forces could prove useful, as would Hayden's devastating attacks. A rift tore open near Kamui, under his feet... Though technically on the ceiling. The rift tore open through something similar to teeth, a gaping maw opening wide right between his feet, and if there was no space, right behind his heels. The dark power was felt by someone who seemed to be quite skilled in analyzing the situation as soon, the strike was sent out. Dark, almost entirely black tendrils erupted forth from the gaping maw that was only the size of a fully extended bear's mouth. These tendrils seemed to take up every centimeter available for release as they surged forwards with rather surprising speed.
A total of 50 tendrils, all with a fair amount of thickness to match fingers. What was truly terrifying were the teeth set along every inch of them on all sides. Poking out to the sides and bending downwards like hooks. Made to latch into something and make it nearly impossible to yank free without pulling something out with it. Each of these tendrils lashed straight for parts of Kamui, a total of five for one leg, aiming to wrap around from the thigh and down the limb with the same treatment for the other. Ten used up already as five went out for his arms. Aiming to wrap around from the shoulder down to the wrist with the same effect. Ten more lashed out for his torso to squeeze and ensnare him as the last twenty seemed to act as distractions. Zooming out in random directions, lashing about rather violently in an attempt to either cut Kamui or force him off of the ceiling.
If any of the tentacles were allowed to grasp any part of his body, sharp teeth would try to tear into his flesh and hook themselves unto him. Pulling and yanking as the gaping maw began to even tug, trying to keep him right where he was. If this hit or not, Ash still managed to avoid the Sanity Drain. Shogi seemed to be shaking as he already turned a deep, dark gray. Hopping in place rather quickly as Ash seemed concerned still, already running out of extra Sanity via Shogi. The girl was left hoping that she could get this done quickly if she tried her hardest with getting Kamui caught.

Her fiery tornado of death had been a grand addition to the dark-haired female’s and the burly man’s attack, but one that ultimately went to waste seeing how the red-haired male had fled. It would’ve been an epic and uncoordinated plan if it had been successful, but it was all for naught despite the contribution from everyone in the group. It kind of, sort of, brought a tear to the brunette’s eyes though she was more upset at the fact her tornado of doom hadn’t caught someone than the group being able to land a single scratch on Mister. She folded her arms across her chest and her lower lip protruded in a pout. Fiery tornado of death was one of her favourite combinations, no, move ever and it died without taking anything with it. Sad. Probably the lack of candy had been its demise.
Eyes would snap over to the man she would now be referring to as mister both mentally and verbally, the brunette done pouting about the failure. She pointed an accusing finger at the red-haired man hanging from the ceiling. “Hey” Her hands balled into fists as she tucked her elbows at her side and pressed her forearm against her chest. Her legs were bent and her upper body was leaning forward ever so slightly, but her head was held high as the next sentence flowed from her mouth. “That’s not fair!” Okay, that wasn’t true, but the brunette couldn’t help but whine. There was nothing in her repertoire, at least nothing that she was aware of, that would allow her to hang upside-down. Maybe she could knock him down with a powerful gust of wind or cause the roof to collapse, but she wouldn’t be doing either of those options… at least not right now.
Not with whatever had been conjured up on the ceiling beneath Mister’s feet. She, naturally, glanced over at the only other female in the room as she stood up straight, the brunette holding her hands behind her back as she raised an eyebrow. Rather it gave her a questioning look or one of interest, mocking or genuine, entirely depended on how the three occupants in the room took it. Reddish brown eyes would focus on the form of the red-haired male after sparing the burly man a glance. She wasn’t too interested in what he was doing, but she still wanted to be aware of what he was doing.
She cocked her head to the side as she continued to watch the spectacle, but she didn’t remain inactive. Lightning began to dance on her skin, practically warning everyone within the room that they would get shocked if they were to come into contact with her. A grin spread a crossed her face as she swayed back and forth, waiting to see the results of the attack. Though, she did begin to formulate a course of action for herself within the depths of her mind. She may be, in the words of Mister, crazy and, in the words of her most people she met, immature beyond belief but Zero was fully capable of coming up with a plan that best utilized her skillset.
She adjusted her scarf as she made note of the fact that she hadn't brought any sort of sugary treat with her this time around. Fiery tornado of death hadn't worked out so much and so the chances of her trying again were rather low. Engaging in hand-to-hand combat wasn't an option at the present moment seeing how mister was on the ceiling rather than the ground, but there was a good possibility that she would be putting her Taekwondo skills to the test. Collapsing the ceiling was out for obvious reasons and no, it wasn't because she was worried about the safety and well-being of her teammates, she just didn't want to get trapped beneath the rubble. No water source meant no water attacks which basically left her with two fancy ideas. She could raise the earth beneath her feet or conjure up some wind to surf on in order to get to the ceiling or she could throw a bolt of lightning at mister.
What a decision for the brunette to make. Pretty difficult seeing how both options could be a load of fun, but she ultimately decided that decision number two was the best one. So, she gathered her lightning into the palm of her right hand. Once enough was gathered, she would withdraw her arm from behind her and point her index finger at mister. She winked at him before sending off the bolt.

Kamui moved faster than Hayden could directly attack him it seemed, this mean he would have to cause a indirect attack towards Kamui. This man was fast faster than what Hayden was used to doing and frankly it annoyed and excited the fallen soldier. When dealing with challenging foes you could never be certain what was going to happen but he was sure this man intended to drag this out till they could come up with a solution that beat this problem. Hayden however was a man of action so he unlike some people would vary his attacks trying to manipulate them to their utmost limits to figure out the key to this; but at the same time he would need to utilize his friends movements and attacks to do so. None the less by now Kamui was posted on top of the ceiling beginning to express his interest on Hayden and Ash powers, a small chuckling escaping Hayden’s lips.
“I would not be so quick to judge..!” Hayden exclaimed loudly as he manipulated the death matter that had failed it’s attempt to form a barrier around Kamui, instead from his hand on the ground it would shoot out touching the barrier connecting it directly to him as he willed the death matter to pulse before exploding in glomps. Using the time afforded by Ash actions the goop like death matter he exploded it outwards in a way it would coat the room in large sticky spots of death matter. It would avoid his team mates by his will alone and while not directly heading for him there was a few glops simply flying at him, should they hit him they would stick to him slowing his movements. Should he dodge however he’d find his movement limited should he not want to step in the death matter, the dark energy connected to his own. Should Kamui repeatedly step in this glops it would slow him down before snagging him eventually- while it limited the movement of everyone save for Hayden, it would allow them to perhaps get a solid hit on Kamui.
By this time it seemed Zero was using Hayden’s own signature element to send a bolt of lightning towards Kamui, he thought it may be good to aid this. Hayden was ideally the only one able to keep up with Kamui movements and perhaps even be able to counter a few due to how close their speed was. Yet Kamui still had a gap on him when it came to raw speed, so should he move Hayden would attempt to try to change the direction of the lightning through the death matter energy now simply floating freely in the air now that his body was producing it and he had coated the room with pools of it. It would a subtle change of direction if he could due to the limited time frame but it could keep Kamui moving and if Kamui kept moving at high speeds there was the chance he would HAVE to step within the pools sooner or later. The idea behind this attack and action was to keep him moving at such high speeds that he would lose his focus and step in the pools.
For his final action Hayden would stand up removing his hand from the ground before raising both his hands before him as he pulled a old page from his kido book. Reiatsu began to channel within his palms before pushing forward floating slightly as it began to repeat this process before around him lay eight balls of crackling lightning like Kido. He wasn’t quite feeling tired yet but there was a small very miniscule amount of strain coming onto him from all the sudden switches in moves and strange uses in his death matter. For the final part to finalize the custom kido spell he would yell the incantation of the Kido.
“Hear the first Roar of the Dragon!”
As Hayden yelled this despite if Kamui was moving or not he would use his enhanced vision and mastery over focus to begin to grip the balls quickly sending them at such high speeds he was breaking the sound barrier using the higher end of his speed and focus to send them at him. Should he be heat for him it would simply feel like minor numbing but running on a numb leg could prove difficult and if multiple hit him he would be slowed, this was all intended to keep him moving through the goop and even if he let it hit him the same result would be found.
The strange part about this was it worked all upon the team unison, this strategy would utilize the randomness of their Wildcard but at the same time allow Ash some rest or even to open a portal that may be able to catch the man through all his movements. Despite the speed and ability Kamui possessed it was only fair to assume if you throw him off or even restrict him in some way his speed and ability to attack would be decreased. This wasn’t a textbook style of attacking they had used previously, Hayden had got a feel for his team mates and now that he had changed their arena perhaps they could set up some more combinations. Then again.. this wasn’t the time to get cocky.

Flashes of light, fifty of them to be exact, would be the reprisal Kamui offered young Ash. At the outset, it was something of a disappointment. The girl slash boy slash thing slash amorphous blob had attempted to use one of these depraved tentacles already and Kamui was not sure why Ash thought that when one failed that simply upping the number of projectiles was going to accomplish anything. It wasn't. Don't misunderstand, in normal situations simply upping the number of threats to deal with was an adequate approach to dealing with a problem, however Ash was not fighting in a normal situation. She was up against a being who at this particular moment in time far outstripped her in terms of capability. A rudimentary approach to the situation was not the correct one, simple mathematics were not going to defeat Kamui. However, by the same token, young Ash's attack could not be viewed in a vacuum. He/she/it was part of a whole and that was, overall, the message he was trying to instill in these three. If he wanted them to start looking at themselves as a unit he had better start doing so himself as well.
As the tentacles all converged on his position, Kamui leveled his Umbrella toward the incoming wave. It was one of his greatest abilities and one that was kind of understated in the scheme of things. Most Magi, regardless of their race, typically need some kind of incantation or sequence to usher forth magic in to this world, Kamui does not. Kamui bypasses the need for incantation altogether with his Fuuinjutsu and consequently spells that would typically require you to scream awkwardly about a peeved overgrown lizard can be done far more quickly. Kamui spun the the umbrella lightly in a circle as the tentacles encroached as small, red petals flowed out in to the air from the umbrella, quickly layering each petal over top one another. When the tentacles were about to reach him, the petals exploded outward, gaining the inside track on each incoming tentacles and then quickly expanding outward the concentrated mass of petals, scratching the surface of what kind of magical power Kamui was capable of. The mass of petals would knock away the incoming tentacles and then would proceed to lacerate and shred them if given the chance. The tentacles were rather interesting though. Was it an inter-dimensional creature that young Ash was conjuring through those portals or was he/she/it merely generating the appendages themselves and hurling them at him? While curious, it didn't have much bearing on this particular altercation and Kamui would simply have to save the thoughts for later.
The part that came next was however EXACTLY why he should not view things in a vacuum. Kamui was forced to use what petals he had not used to diffuse the incoming tentacles to block off the globs of death matter that Hayden had launched up at him, obstructing the exploding material just enough that while it sprayed itself on to bits of the wall around him, he had prevented himself from coming in to direct contact with it. The death matter that did connect with the petals quickly began to corrode though and the magical energy that he had put in to the petals had diminished, the glob falling back to the floor in the process. He did not have much time to react though. It was the right decision and one he was glad to see them make. When faced with an opponent who seemed rather centered on speed, the first step was to limit his capacity for movement. Trying to pin Kamui's rather spritely movements would take more than spraying his goo all over the place, but the sentiment was there and it did limit his options even still. As such, Kamui would entertain it for now and would choose to not move. He'd let them play out their tactic and see just how well they could actually put him down once they caught him there. The first attempt at that was a lightning bolt. So fire and lightning then? She didn't seem to truly be manipulating forces at a molecular level, which in turn most likely meant her influence was strictly related to elemental manipulation...but just how many was she capable of. A soft click of his tongue left him as he was forced to do something he did not want to do. As the bolt shot toward him, Kamui's umbrella fell and his arm extended out toward the bolt of electricity. It seemed for a moment that the attack had hit his hand and that they had achieved their assignment...and then nothing visibly happened. Not more than a moment later however, the spot where Kamui had moved to a few moments prior suddenly exploded...as if struck by a bolt of lightning. Energy was easier to move than solid objects, but he still didn't like having to resort to such things and the attack had effectively destroyed the seal he had placed earlier to avoid it. However, the hand still holding his umbrella had afforded him to opportunity to deflect the current follow up.
As Kamui had reacted to the bolt of lightning, the Umbrella in his hand had shifted down to his side and emitted a bright and almost blinding light as the Umbrella began to shift. In less than a millisecond the form had shifted, the Umbrella seemingly replaced itself with a luminescent blade of energy. Hayden's spell would be cut through a moment later as it finished closing on him and unlike what the reaction most likely should have been from a sword hitting a spell, the magic itself seemed to dissolve. Kamui's sword seemed to destroy the very fabric of the magic it cut through, dispersing and deflating any destructive potency that Hayden's Kido may have had. The attacks had seemed done for the moment and Kamui let a soft sigh escape from him, his sword gently angled down toward the trio.
"Good good, limit the quick's range of motion and tie them down. Smart. Now how do you get through an immovable object?"
Their attacks proved quite useless once more. Only to be deflected or avoided once again by Kamui, a man who far exceeded the group's current power. Another issue present was that... They hadn't quite hit the mark for teamwork yet, or at least, enough to overcome this daunting task. Ash was sure she could get rougher to the point that Kamui might slip up enough for Hayden or Zero to land a strike but... That was something she decided would only be a last resort if they were in risk of failing this test. The main issue now was simply the realization that nothing they did struck Kamui.
Her attempt as immobilizing him failed once again, but seemed to have at least caused him to give a greater effort than before. Petals flowing out from the umbrella to decimate her own attack after deflecting it. It was honestly a rather beautiful display as ribbons of the corrupted, tainted eldritch flesh fell down to the ground and seemingly melted away, if they weren't already destroyed by the mass of petals first. The rift that brought for the attack snapped shut and left no traces of ever existing, and Ash was starting to get fairly strained from all of this. Her allies didn't seem to fare much better, Hayden actually causing Kamui to try even harder than before along with Zero's help.
Blobs were avoided, electricity left useless. What were they supposed to do in order to land a blow? How else would anyone be able to leave a scratch upon this man's body without needing to essentially blow up the entire area? Wait... Maybe that would be the secret to how to defeat him. At least, that would be the cause if this was still simply about hitting him. A new boast was set upon the joined together band of fighters. To blast through an immovable object... Usually, in most situations, it would be best to move around the object. That seems to be, at the very least, the best option. However, that wasn't an option when in this case, the goal -was- to hit the same exact object that's been avoiding their attacks all this time.
Energies began to swirl around Ash once more, but rather... This time it didn't seem to be eldritch in nature. Rather, it was Chaos Energy, something akin to most Iramasha that many used for feats similar to magic. Already, she began to bark out what her plan was. "Hayden! I'm limiting his places to move, I need you to either slip into the barrier with him or get an attack in there that he can't dodge her block! Zero, please help with this too!" The high pitched voice sounded a little unfit for giving out orders, but it was the best shot she personally thought they had in this predicament.
Soon, a faint, pink energy began to surround Kamui, just large enough to fit the man inside and Hayden's bulk if he planned to join him in melee range or simply launch an attack. The energy solidified as a barrier formed around him, completely cutting off any way of escaping that small dome that contained him. Energy siwrled around, tightly knit together to specifically defend against attacks far greater than it. Attacks that could destroy people in a singular hit. A small, spiraling beam shot out of Ash's hands as she focused right on the barrier created around Kamui. Her plan right now was to contain him enough so that the others could focus, eyes darting to her allies, ready to make an opening for them to send out an attack through it just encase they were a bit late on the draw.

Zero looked just about ready to whine once again about how unfair the mister was being, but she managed to hold back that urge. Instead, the girl breathed in sharply as her smile dropped from her lips. That lightning bolt was suppose to make him nice and toasty, but that had been adverted despite her own efforts and that of her teammates. If she wanted to be dramatic about it, she would’ve let out something akin to disbelief, but she had known that the chances of their attacks working out was close to zero percent - at least in the back of her mind. She was an optimistic person though and so long as she was having fun she didn’t mind how low their chances were. Yet, she knew that they would have to eventually get this test over with which would require a little more teamwork on their part. Now as to rather or not they would be capable of putting their heads together in order to figure out a cohesive that had less than a ten percent chance of failing remained to be seen.
Lips pursed, Zero crossed her arms, the fifteen-year-old giving off the impression of a petulant child, a look not maintained by the teenager for long. She smiled once again, her arms dropping to her sides as she proceeded to sway back and forth. Mister presented the trio with another question and Zero really liked answering those. Of course, in her infinite wisdom, she knew the answer to his question. Given her personality, she was the sort of person to destroy objects that obstructed her path though she could also be the sort of person to move around it depending on the position of the moon, stars, and her mood. With that in mind, the brunette prepared to set the entire room on fire, but that plan was put on the back burner in favor of… uh… misses idea.
“Okay!” She said as she pumped her left arm in the air. She would wave that same arm in front of her soon after, the brunette forming several balls made of electricity one meter in front of her. They were about the size of a standard basketball and she directed her electrifying creations towards mister. If their combined efforts didn’t so much as scratch mister, well Zero was going to have to do her own thing without care for the safety of her teammates. In simpler terms, the brunette would probably be setting the room on fire unless she thought of a ridiculous plan to take down the candyman.

So little Ash decided to take charge, this was good he didn’t want to throw his own authority or rank around so he was glad the son of his leader was taking the initiative he wanted to get into the battle. This caused a slight smirk on the face of The Fallen Soldier now that they were getting serious, his blood was flowing and it was quite exhilarating to get into this battle. He had a few tricks in mind when it came to getting in close to Kamui but they had limited his range of movements thankfully so now Hayden could do his more up close and personal work; even if he got his ass kicked it was better to get in tight for the moment it seemed to accomplish their goals. But before he could do that he must let his teammates know what he was planning to do- quickly at that.
“Aye, Gotcha!” He informed them but kept a shroud of mystery least he alert Kamui to what he was planning, now it was time to take the proper precautions to deal with this battle. It was time to show what it meant to literally be mind over matter in this regard. The Vizard feet widen briefly but quickly as he closed his hands into balled fist that began to to emit a smoke from them, his muscles contracting as they began to grow more defined and tight strange enough- his whole body emitting a heavy smoke from the speed his muscles were working and the durability required was enough for Hayden to maintain this increase in his muscle usage and potency. You see he was currently utilizing a nifty ability called ‘body control’. He was able to manipulate every aspect of his body technically cosmetic or otherwise if he so wished but he mostly used it for was increasing his strength and speed temporarily something that he needed to do to shock Kamui if only for a second. It was time to rock and roll this show.
When Hayden foot dug into the ground a puff of smoke kicked out and dirt as he literally disappeared for a second for his team mates at least. The only thing that was left was a afterimage as he moved at speeds that required a high level of control and power to muster only people on Kamui and Hayden level of speed could recognize. Unlike Kamui earlier who disappeared with grace, Hayden speed was raw power that was refined into a work horse that while not as ‘pretty’ as Kamui may be more destructive in it’s nature as he broke the sound barrier causing the room to reverberate for a second as he entered into Mach 14 feeling his muscles strain- similar to a man sprinting a quick dash. The amount of time to reach Kamui wouldn’t take very long but Hayden mind entered into ‘Focus’ Mode as his increased the operating power of his eyes to give him a slight edge.
When Hayden reached Kamui his elbow would extend as if he intended to simply tackle the man and punt him, should the elbow land Hayden would push his elbow into his chin before switching his feeting to allow his left hand to outstretch to grip Kamui right arm to keep them up tight and close. But chances are he could dodge this attack so if he attempted to Hayden would stop on the dime, something that his muscles would protest but he could do none the less as a strain was felt in his ankles a literary trail of smoke would kick up. This would allow for him to stop as soon as his eyes picked up any form of counter attack or dodge in which Hayden would respond by using his Hakuda Technique ‘Luce Celeritate’ which basically as a kick aimed at the back of the knee joint that could easily dislocate the joint due to Hayden aiming for a very small point and placing a obscene amount of force there. Even if he missed and clipped the leg the amount of rawr strength going into the kick could break someone’s in half.
Despite if these two attacks landed Hayden would begin to crouch low almost as he eye’d Kamui with a intent to harm him, in his eyes was the telltale signs of murderous intent. It was like the man was possessed by a new force that only cared to see Kamui laying bloody and broken at his feet the smoke coming from him was getting heavier just from the amount of speed and force he was applying to his body. Black shadows would explode from his back as he reached out for Kamui with his his hand to grip his face rather violently if he could- but despite this the black shadows would begin to dance towards Kamui as a extension of Hayden. Should Kamui go left because Hayden is attacking his right they will meet him on the left or vice versa. For a brief moment Kamui would see a purple tint to Hayden’s eyes as he allowed himself to give into his surge of murderous intent- the overwhelming emittance of death leaking from every move and attack he made with or without the shadows of death matter. Should they get a hold of him they will remain on tightly pulling him to him causing more to take their place should he destory them but also keeping the two close and tight- Hayden was moving on Kamui level of speed afterall with attacks and otherwise; at least unaugmented it seemed.
