Eyes aglow, his aura began to rage even greater much to his own bliss as his barrier thickened. Five hollows, an entire forest of spiritual power, residual energy from his crew members, and now he was casually scarfing down a human soul. It was all just so much in such a short time. He could feel his body growing faster, stronger, and as he took in more of Minerva's essence he could feel a small portion of her knowledge build upon his own. He wanted nothing more than to take more, than to feed MORE, but she was his companion. All in all he hoped to simply earn his personal space with a bit of a warning shot, one that failed to be effective do to his victims trancelike state. 'Well...that's...new. I suppose if she can't even defend herself, than it's time to stop.
' He thought to himself only to perk as he heard the little one shot. Snapping attention to Nina his eyes followed her accent into the air, one that would ultimately lead into a crash landing upon Minerva's side. 'What an odd sight.'
Or so he thought to himself as Minerva came to. Almost instantly the strange woman went from sniffing around his fur, to flying 20ft into the air just to avoid him. Perhaps his scare tactic worked a bit too well? One thing that he did know for sure, was that Minerva's soul was a gold mine of intellectual value. Pushing her away now after a taste like that would be like trying to drop a bad habit cold turkey. Not only that, but he finally managed to speak with Nina, and maybe even change her thoughts of himself ever so slightly, just for Minerva to pull her away for more training. This would simply not do. "Now now...no need to jump to conclusions. Im more than willing to be of assistance. If you want to attack me, feel free! In fact, i'm feeling damn good right now, so much in fact that i'll even let you attempt to set me on fire."
The fox spoke with a toothy grin, though this time it was slightly different, there was a trace of hunger within his maw. "With both of our assistance combined, we can have you fighting hollows in no time."
The Adjucha's tail swished back and forth as he took a seat, his gaze fixed on the woman above. "Though, after it's over, perhaps you could help me learn a thing or two. Something about...shape shifting?"
The fox inquired, only having gathered enough data to obtain basic understanding of a rather small pool of skill. "Aside from that, I would really like to prove to you that i'm not a bad person Nina. I suppose it's silly, but in a world ran by seemingly humans, your presence appeals to me the most."
His power high slowly dwindled as he began to feel more like himself again. Truly he did care for the others thoughts, especially ones pertaining to him. "As for you Lex..." The gray and blue fox spoke as he looked over his shoulder. "That's the type things I wanna hear!"
