It wasn't hard for her to navigate through the Rukongai. Traveling deep within the districts, she brought with her a some rations and medical supplies. She had one goal in mind, "Help anyway I can.."
Sophia traversed through the forest and towns providing any modicum of aid she could provide. She was south of the gates, nearing district 78. The air was dry and she was carefully surveying her surroundings.undisturbed. As far as she can tell the town felt empty. The sun was beating on her back and if there was one thing she hated it was super hot weather. She began to walk toward a small enclosure of trees. It seemed peaceful, as she looked around there was a very small blood trail on the ground. Sophia dropped to a knee and dipped her fingers in it, "This is fresh.."
She stood up with any hesitation and called out, "Anyone here? I saw some blood back there, I can help!"
After a little bit of searching, Sophia finds a young boy on the outer rim of the town. Quickly, she notices something's not right about him. Sophia's face furrows with worry as she ran full speed towards the young boy. Dropping to her knees, she quickly begins to examine the boys injuries. Her skill in combat may not be up to snuff with the other graduates, but her skill with healing is exceptional. Sophia was expecting to see small injury or dehydration, but her eyes widen in horror as she finds his injuries are much more grave. She immediately begins to channel healing energies into the large bleeding laceration across his chest. With her tail, she quickly finds a medical tool that helps with staunching blood. Sophia's hands and tails move with agility of a seasoned surgeon. She was able to resuscitate the boy and bring him to consciousness. As the boy awakes his eyes open in fear, he whispers with trepidation in his voice, "Miss, Run..."
Sophia tilts her head back in confusion, "Run?"
Movement could instantly be sensed within the forest around her. Sophia quickly dressed the wounds and bandaged him as quickly as she could. She looked up, tracing her fingers on the ground, her fingers being trailed by a red-light. Trying to find exactly what direction the sound was coming from, she whispers to herself, "Hadō #12. Fushibi..."
As she whispers a thin translucent net begins to form around her and the insignia she put on the ground begins to glow brighter. As the rustling from the tress comes from the south, she began to chant,
"Kunrinsha yo! Chiniku no kamen, banshō, habataki, hito no na o kansu mono yo! Shōnetsu to sōran, umihedate sakamaki minami e to ho o susume yo!"
Pausing for a second to look behind her, there it was, a bloodied tusked hollow. Something was odd about it, it was extremely animalistic. Sophia noticed it looked almost figure of a humanoid. She swung her hand around her and in a low hushed voice, "Hadō #31. Shakkahō".
There was a flash of bright pink energy, then the air was suddenly still. The tusked hollow immediately started at her and the little boy. Flicking her wrist in an instant, a huge ball of bright opaque red energy soared through the sky landing a direct hit. Immediately she began to redress his wounds, "Let's run!
As she gently picked up the boy, the tusked hollow, although severely injured proceeded to run at them. Sophia turned her arms away from the hollow and as the hollow came near, a pink translucent net unraveled on the hollow. Slowly her tails crawled up the hollow's body, and she smiled, "You like to cause pain to others?"
The tails wrapping his body began to encroach throughout his torso. Reaching his neck, Sophia licked her lips and bit down casually as her tail began to strangle him. The hollow growled, and without skipping a beat, she drew her sword and immediately swung her hips and dug the blade into the hollow's throat. Cleaning her blade and sheathing it, she held the young boy gently as she headed back towards the town.
