Artist: Poets Of The fall - Song: Carnival of Rust - Word Count:939 Shunko aye?
He thought, his mind reeling about everything he knew of the craft, to even be proficient at it required one to be well versed in both Kido and hand to hand combat. It could be a very deadly tool to someone properly trained in it. Cracking his neck Carter eyed the man a bit more seriously while he explained just how strong the protection of the City of Lights was, it almost hit a nerve in him having this guy explain away anything he could have done by saying 'yeah well the cities defenses are stronger than me'. True or not the defenses meant the city as a whole and didn't apply to every singular being walking the streets. His golden eyes left his opponent and looked through the barrier he had created, the outside world looking disjointed through the shimmering walls of energy, everyone near by appeared fine but had vacated the immediate area.
"You must be relatively new to your craft and trade, to go into battle using a Shunko that is so wildly unbalanced and admittedly dangerous implies I am dealing with someone not quite area of the true weight of their actions.
" He said, his golden eyes snapping back to the man before him, all accent and fake anger gone from his voice, a cold serious edge now in it's place.
"A Shinigami does not engage so foolishly with something they haven't perfected unless they are either desperate or all around foolish. You haven't had a look of desperation in your eyes once as I came at you, so am I too assume you are a fool?
" He asked, his voice retaining the hard edge while advancing upon the man, "But now, for your mistake it's time to get desperate. Time for you to fight as if your very life depends on it.
" He said his voice now directly behind the man, a flash of light had issued forth and that was it, before the man could blink Carter was standing behind him as he activated his Lux Gradus, upon activation if the man was paying attention a small iota of energy was released, the core of it feeling akin to a Shinigami but something else as well, something that transcended all other types of spiritual beings and felt as if it were the antidote to the demonic energy that flooded the majority of the world this day and age, something one could describe as pure. The pureness though, now seemed wrong, it wouldn't fele warm and inviting for the second it existed in time and space before vanishing, it would feel like a cruel and unforgiving god sent to destroy those who dare to fall out of line.
Once the spark faded if the man even caught it Carter would clear his throat, "Your life and honor as a Shinigami now depend on you surviving me using all the weapons at your disposal, use anything without taking your actions into account and you will be punished, falter and you will be annihilated.
" He said before disappearing again, now standing only a few scant in front of the man, his chest glowing with a white light, the veins under his skin pulsating the same faint white light as he brought his arms up and widened his stance, the man would feel something like his own Shunko as Carter began to release his power and bring it into his being. Exhaling he would feel the force of energy beneath him and pull it up from the ground as Ulv had shown him and gather the raw natural energy into his body, channeling it all to his left hand before pushing his palm outward."Celestial Crane first release
" With that easy push of his hand a blast of air would reign down upon the man, the force of it making all the trapped air in the space around them vibrate and give off high pitched whining noise as it rocketed toward him, even now as Carter was trying to push the man he made sure to watch his own speeds and corrected the release so it would be counter-able, though if it hit the man the force would feel like being struck with that of a small car and send the man careening into the barrier behind him.
