The circumstances called for quite a change in character, one could say. Though Saisei would take on a threat head on in most cases, the lives of those around him came first. With that being said, Alistair and the being before him solved any dilemma the boy may have in decision making. They needed help, Saisei was one of the few that could fulfill the needs at hand. Helping potential survivors and taking out the Gillian that were afar was a solid plan of action, especially when there wasn't a plan in place in the first place.
"As reluctant as I am about this entire situation and leaving the current state of things as is, you aren't wrong. I'll do my best with what I have at my disposal."
He stretched, taking short strides away from Alistair and Jambhala. As simple as 'fight the enemies at large' seemed, it'd prove to be quite the task for someone like Saisei. Nevertheless, he knew his goal was one of just concern.
"And let me just make something explicitly clear."
Before taking off, the boy turned towards the two without hesitation and yelled aloud, far and wide enough for the entirety of the battlefield to hear him.
"If things start going south, I'm done messin' around with this guys buddies. Last thing I need is some random demon takin' out more folks than we can afford. I'll kill him myself. Until then, I'll do what's right and take out the problem children shootin' at us. I trust y'all will keep it handled here. If need be, I will be back. I promise that."
Saisei turned towards Gillian that progressed towards them. It wouldn't be one and done, in fact it would likely take up quite a bit of his strength to get up close and personal with a bunch of cero hungry freaks like this. Despite that, the boy couldn't help but let a smile light up his pale complexion. It wasn't often that he was allowed to express his frustrations in such a healthy way. Beating the rocks off a bunch of hollow degenerates was right up his alley.
Off he went, towards the throng of Gillian without hesitation. Their numbers weren't tiny nor were they an easy fight, the recruit wouldn't have it any other way. While he made his way towards them, he shouted one final time to the battlefield in hopes of catching their attention.
"Lets get this game started, huh? Throw what you got at me!"
With a solid jump, Saisei launched in the air and came barreling towards a Gillian, scrapping his fist along its large exterior in hopes of blowing a sizable hole in its torso. He made his first move, now it was their turn. After all, Saisei was best under pressure. May as well give them a fightin' chance.

A cat? Body morphing? Shinigami are perplexing creatures, ironic. Though, he could care less about her escape with another nuisance before him. Why bother with a lowly Shinigami when the daughter of your queen is before you? Besides, Calypso proved annoying in more ways than one. First, her moths attached to his person, acting as butterflies instead of what they are, sucking his energy like nectar. Next, she dared grip his sword like a child trying to pry a toy away from their older sibling. Her mistake. For one, she lacked the strength for such a feat, nor could she possibly conceive keeping up with his swordsmanship. However, his movements are somewhat delayed by the moths on his skin. Without much care, he started crunching on the ones in his mouth, finding his body surge with energy.
“Pest! You speak of uninteresting when your style is all but exciting. I’ll carve a book from your carcass and read it to your tortured loved ones.”
His form seemed to grow beefier, the moths on his body becoming smaller against his armored skin. Then, they would explode as Calypso would feel her attempt to siphon his energy dull immensely. Suddenly, the area around Alvah became dry. The energy her moths had tried to steal now flowed back into him. The sword in her hand followed suit, increasing in size in her grip, her hands unable to stop it. She thought herself capable of holding him, but she could not hold anything without fingers, and that is exactly what she is rewarded with. The sword simply jerked, taking her claws away from her. He did not try to chase her off, but, instead, he began thrusting his sword through her if she did not retreat. Just like before, he cared little for his own body as he attacked her, any wound inflicted to himself healed instantly.
“You are but a mockery of my existence, a child allowed to frolic like a lame baby. Culled is your only future, Asthavon.”
The Gillian proved far from capable fighters, their existence unmodified. Saisei proved capable of punching through one without issue. However, that caught the attention of the others as they began to focus fire on the young Vandenreich male.

Don't use shikai, she could not use her shikai. That would make her as much of an enemy as Alvah. Did she try and make a deal with the manifestation living in her soul? Yugiri didn't really know how that would go, there was no time to try and perform jinzen and she had no faith in these people to protect her. That meant it really was just her. Alone.
"Alright. I can make this work."
She bit her lip to focus herself and plan out her moves. With Yaksha and Calypso attacking it might be aimless to try and get involved, especially when he was powering up. The landscape was mostly broken and laying in rubble, no more buildings or anything.
Dashing up and above, she opted to use their opening to try and axe kick the monstrous beast of a demon down into the ground with enough force to bury him up to his thighs and restrict the mobility a fraction of a moment. A bit of momentum leftover to fling herself back up into the air in a display that didn't seem to care about physics with her supernaturally keen footwork and Yugiri was back on the sidelines. Little more than a nuissance while she tried to feel him out cautiously with the way he seemed to change.
Demons really were such a bothersome thing to deal with.

Alastair did not flinch as Yaksha - or rather the entity that was formerly Yaksha - lambasted his initial plan of action. His gaze did not falter as he rained Heilig Pfeils over Saisei's head and into the oncoming Gillian, though he silently stewed upon the advice given to him. Seeing the Hollows turn away from the battlefield itself to focus upon the young recruit, he turned to assess the state of the main demon itself.
"You are correct, Jambhala. I do not possess a vast knowledge of your skillset, so I will adhere to your assessment in this instance."
It was almost nonchalant, an idle response that paid little heed to the judgement levelled against him by the creature. He pivoted in the air, now facing toward the centre of the battlefield once more, as he knocked another arrow and took aim at the Uprooter.
"It is certainly possible I could limit his mobility somewhat, I have faith in my strikes being capable enough to inflict some damage at least. More so if you have tools or techniques to aid me in such. But we cannot dally, I have sustained injuries already and the energy I am expending to persist the Vollständig state is not a bottomless well."
The heat he was emitting in this released state, whilst hardly enough to scald anyone outside of touching distance, had already begun to mellow. His focus was almost entirely upon the wings on his back and Spirit Weapon in his hands, for they were a necessity here lest he fall back into the wreckage below and deal himself further damage. He was not out of time yet, but it was a matter of minutes rather than hours.
