THE EAGLE GOD
CO-HEAD OF THE VIZARD CORPS
The Eaglegod's eyes began to narrow as he watched energy from all sources begin flowing towards Mana, all at once; quite an interesting sight to the vizard. After all, he could follow where the energy was coming from… in addition to where it was going. Towards the one whom he was currently attacking, as the case was. His eyes narrowed; for most her words would have been simply too fast as she spoke about hoer she should keep her head in the game.But Colin could hear. He could hear what she said quite clearly; that not only was she presently able to keep up with his movements, but she was also able to process what it was he was doing with quite a bit of forewarning.
"You're not headstrong. You're just an overbloated waste." He thought to himself as his inner hollow acted, blowing up Mana's head in a most extravagant manner. Does she never shut up? Colin thought in wonder as she kept going ON AND ON AND ON about head jokes and proceeded to split her other half into another being. However, Colin failed to be intimidated; after all, she would still be the same sum total opponent all the same.
Colin was now in the air above the field of Shadow's, looking down from within it as Mana's head began acting. It hadn't taken him very long at all to talk with the Knight of Blood and Kanda; which allowed him to look down below himself. ...So she has high-speed regeneration… He thought as he detected the larger focus of energy within the shadows; watching it reform a head and the head reforming a body. Yuck. He thought, glad there was little to no way that she could know about his cybernetic eyes. While they could receive information from the outside, they physically sent off no detection; and Colin was nearly certain that never once had he ever said anything about them to anyone in the group that was all gathered up.
Colin was honestly bored of Mana's actions after her second little exclamation, saying boo for him. He watched her suck up his cero, thinking to himself but not giving any outwards appearance other than irratation that it had been irritating. However, there was just one problem with her plan; and that was the assumption of Colin's cero. Colin had seen her absorb Toki's attacks twice by the point he shot his cero; there was little to no chance that he would allow her to have her way that easily.
So, Colin had added just a liiittle spice to the cero he fired. And that spice was a bit of the way Rapido Avaces worked mixed in. It caused in an instability in the cero as it appeared in front of the other Mana, as it proceeded to explode spectacularly in front of her. After all, Colin's energy was his alone; he couldn't control what she did with the blast after it impacted her, but his raw energy he knew how to manipulate quite well to keep it out of the control of other parties. Indeed, Mana could take control of the cero; however the control would not stop the motion of the Rapido Avaces wave that was a part of the make-up of the cero, in which case it would cause the raw energy to explode regardless, although it would certainly give Mana another reason to shout more nonsense and show off.
He physically blinked as they said they were going to "Go back to kicking his feathery butt". ...The hell. "Do either of you even get what a colossal waste of breath you're using? So far all you've done is strut around and talk about what you've done. So far you haven't done much yet." He explained, pointing out the obvious discrepancy with their words. He honestly wondered how they themselves didn't notice this; but he supposed being crazy could easily flaw ones perception of the battlefield. A flaw in perception that Colin wondered if he would be able to take advantage of.
Then he suddenly stopped dead. He could physically feel the processes within himself, the flow of his energy, the flapping of his wings begin to slow down. ...Oh HELL NO. He thought defiantly as he examined what exactly was going on. Frick frick frick. He thought as Rapido Avaces began pounding all throughout his body. After just a moment of downtime, he blinked, panting softly but at his normal speed once again with the internal parts of his body. His wings were still slowed; he gave no outward sign that he was still thinking and having his internal processes going at their normal rate. Of course, he was having to run more Rapido Avaces like this, but the very nature of Rapido Avaces meant that it used extremely little energy, simply flowing the energy back and forth within the Eaglegod at an increased rate to provide internal momentum that increased his speed.
However, what happened next caused him to nearly reach the limit of his bankai. He felt something pressuring him, his eyes widening as he recognized an increase in the gravitational force around him as he opened his mouth. "Caw caw, motherf#cker." He said simply, as a blue mask appeared around his face, Rapido Avaces flowing through his hairline as it shoved it out as fast as it could. It had three feathers on either side of it, a large orange beak at the bottom, and holes for eyes that had become mere slits. Colin then proceeded to merely blink…
And glance down as a huge amount of pressure slammed into the ground, tossing cars, cracking the concrete, and causing small things like traffic lights and firehydrants to be blown away. His eyes widened behind the mask; the gravitational singularity had been so powerful it had broken through the ground, creating a massive crater that was very deep. However, there was one vital fact that one might have gathered from this…
Colin Washi was not in that gravitational singularity. He was still in the air, his wings not even flapping anymore as he glanced his eyes back at Mana Mana. "Yoooou knoooow whaaaaaat piiiissssesssssss meeee oooooooff mooooooooore thaaaaaaan aaaaaaaaanythiiiiiiiiing elllllllllse iiiin theeee woooorld." Colin said, his voice slowed as it came out of his mouth. He merely smiled; no doubt extremely confusing her addled brain. He was still slowed, yes. And yet the gravitational singularity had just slipped right off of him; ignoring him as if he hadn't existed. His soul chain was fine; it had tingled a bit for the three miliseconds that the force had pressed on his shoulders, which now had small bruises on them, but other than that he had had no pressure against himself from the attack; and yet he was still being slowed on the outside, at the very least.
"Waaaaaastefuuuuul actioooooon." He said simply as she had twenty tentacles burst from her back. His eyes narrowed, and then widened again, his mouth in the shape of a smile as they split, becoming a hundred. However, they did not go down; they had to come upwards for their prey. Colin Washi was still in the sky. All because of the one element it was within his power to have his ody ignore; his Anti-Gravity field. This unique trait is the only thing that ever made his mask special; it creates a field of anti gravity around his body, that eats gravititatioal force upon itself and debuffers it from Colin, refusing to allow it to touch the Eaglegod. As such, because the gravitational forces cannot touch his body, they cannot pressure him and lower him down to the earth. Colin DESPISES being limited as Mana had tried to force him to be; and he had been able to play his one card that was able to give him some kind of going against the planned path of this battle; not that Mana knew it was his only card of this kind, or even what it truly was. After all, Colin was still outside the shadows; he was still outside Mana's field of influence other than the speed retardation field.
However, he was ready as the hundred tentacles came after him. He shot Rapido Avaces further than his internal processes as he held Windscar in one hand and his Feather Katana in the other. His eyes narrowed as he slashed repeatedly at the tentacles; his body flashing as his shunpo caused him to vanish away from the bits of tentacle that went flying everywhere. Even at roughly forty percent of the energy that he could summon up with his bankai and his mask, he could still use the special qualities of Rapido Avaces accelerated to stop the tentacle points.
However, he qiuckly realized that this would not be enough, as he thought for a moment. He created a RA Sphere in each hand, his wings flapping as he flew away from the tentacles. As he did so, he noticed a curious sensation. ….Weird. My energy… I had to accelerate to get it out, but now that it is out… His eyes widened as he smiled. IT CAN'T SLOW DOWN ENERGY THAT IS DONE SUMMONING! He noted, as he crossed his arms in front of himself…
And shuddered. Below his buttocks his Feather Katana had reached, extending itself into a platform of feathers as it deflected a single, and then multiple numbers of tentacles as they shot all around Colin. His eyebrow twitched at the planned molestation; he was absolutely terrified to know what would have happened if the individual feathers themselves were already summoned energy and therefore no longer slowed by the field. Madness really harms perfection… He thought to himself as he wondered why his wings, now filled with Rapido Avaces, were still slowed by the field, while his katana was not.
...Hmm. I suppose it's kind of a ruling field… anything attached to me seems to be slowed… anything that is detached and energy based is not. Interesting. He thought, regarding the RA Spheres in his hands. He saw the tentacles in front of him once more, his eyes narrowing as he realized he would never be able to stop them as things were now. He had to take out their source or else they would keep chasing him. His eyes glanced down simply below, his eyes easily following the tentacle trail back to their dense reiatsu source. He was hesitant to reenter that sphere of the battlefield, but recognized he couldn't stay up here forever.
He took a deep breath, before his wings prepared to flap themselves, the tentacles coming after him for another strike. He narrowed his eyes at them as he prepared himself, the flow of Rapido Avaces withiin him more than doubling its pace. He vanished, not knowing what Mana had done to her body but knowing it most likely wouldn't be of consequence to the durability of the tentacles. Already he was about to do something he was pretty sure would wound her; after all, it was one of his strongest attacks.
His body reappeared behind her, both arms pressed forwards, his wings in a downward position and nearly touching the ground. The attacks within his hands reached a centimeter away from her back when he reappeared, as Colin smiled. "Rapido Avaces Bomb." He spoke, Rapido Avaces in his mouth even as he made his attack, giving no pauses. The singularities within the spheres in his hands triggered, becoming unstable as from his hands the energy burst. Rapido Avaces bomb was a curious technique; Colin was currently using a blue bomb in his right and a green one in his left. The bomb was like a cero; however, the energy was rediverted back into flowing into itself. This meant that the attack was more like an overcharged cero, a cero on roid rage in power. However, there was yet another element to all this; the release of the attack. Whenever the singularity within the sphere becomes unstable, it causes a chain reaction within the sphere, causing it to grow huge, beyond normal person height in width and length. This is what was happening now; where Mana Mana's body had been standing the two spheres raged as one. The spheres were unmoving; Colin had not yet released them.
However, their colors were not pointless. Anything within the sphere experiences a different effect as the damage of that sphere. The green sphere dealt all of the burning damage a normal cero would cause, but instead as slashes. This would hopefully be more than enough, Colin thought, to remove the tentacles from their source and remove the abominations from the face of the planet. Erm, frozen continent. Erm, city of madness. Colin would think that the narrator should shut up now if he could hear him. Anyway. The blue sphere. The blue sphere, instead of the burning damage most ceros would cause but focused totally on the sphere it had created, it dealt explosive damage. Every place it touched on Mana's skin while the sphere was up would feel like a tiny, but potent, stick of dynamite appeared and detonated. Colin believed this would be enough to eradicate the bases of the tentacles, even as he leaped back, already coming up with another plan. The spheres remained in existence for a total of two seconds, but in that time could have torn and blasted a statue of raw diamonds into near nothingness; such was the potent but precisioned force of Rapido Avaces Bomb.
He didn't know where that Mana copy went; if she tried to interrupt him he would vanish, reappearing where he currently was now, some fifty feet away from Mana. As he hit the ground, sliding at over three hundred miles per hour, the smile on his face widened. "Bakudo 27." He said simply, quietly to himself, even as his body and presence vanished from sight as he touched onto the ground. He vanished, reappearing on the roof of a nearby building, still invisible as he watched down below.He blinked at looked over his shoulder, as he comprehended a… ..a bird. He noted dully, turning his face back down to Mana.
It seemed that it wasn't just Colin that was pressuring the demon queen; another woman had appeared on the scene, one whose presence Colin could not find anywhere in the data that he was linked to. He suddenly shivered, invisibly, remembering the sounds of discharge he had heard from all those tentacles he had cut down; like cables being cut. However, this raised a very curious question. How did Mana know he used cybernetic equipment? He pondered this for the moment as he watched from atop the building. What are the odds of her using that particular element… yes, it is something that can stun. However, ice and cold usually lasts much longer than electricity. In addition, the tentacles were not pointed or anything like that… could she be an electric type person, really… hmm…. He pondered all this, the curiosities and theories dancing about his head. Colin wasn't extremely smart; but his mental reaction was second to few.
His eyes glanced over at Toki, seeing his ally stuck within his own bararier, the denizens of evil at his doorstep, so to speak. The Eaglegod took a deep breath, focusing on Toki's location as he suddenly vanished from the roof, without warning or heed. Sorry Toki but it's better for you this way!!! He thought simply as he covered a hand in feathers, using their accelerated cutting power to put a minute sized hole in the barrier. Behind Toki, meanwhile, the very fabric of space began to alter as small bits of the sky, like teeth, began separating from each other like a great mouth, summoning a Garganta behind Toki. However, it was taking time to summon; the darn retard field was making sure of that.
Colin's hand glowed red as the garganta continued it slow opening. "Hadō ONE. SHO." Colin said simply, as from his finger the red energy evaporated, and Toki was suddenly slammed body-wide by the blast of force. Meanwhile, the garganta behind him was still opening; the angel flew back into the Garganta as it just barely made it in time, shoving him into the orthodox of space and sending him to appear somewhere else in the city. Colin hadn't had time to think of a destination; that would have meant another thought process he would have to sustain with even more Rapido Avaces. This much use of Rapido Avaces was dangerous; Colin knew that he was most likely going to be burnt out on it soon at this rate. However, that mechanical eagle gave him hope; he wasn't entirely sure why… but it did. He wondered, briefly, as he vanished from the edge of the barrier, if it was slowed down by the field le retardo. He really wasn't sure.
He could feel his invisibility Kidō starting to fade, as he came back into existence standing on a light pole. He was wary now; extremely wary and extremely angry. He was angry at Mana; the cold hard look in his eyes showed this as much. She had been able to completely adapt herself to this situation. Not only that, but she had tried to make life extremely difficult for her opponents as well. Christ it's not like I've got a magically retarding device in my… huh. He stopped, his thought processes racing ahead for a moment as he increased the Rapido Avaces amount in his mind. Wait, no. I don't think I have anything quite like that in my arsenal of gear. Darnit.
So far, Mana had used three things in order to harm Colin's speed. Her electricity, which was extremely effective against Colin and made him wonder if she knew it was very effective against him, her gravity singularity that would have been able to drag Colin out of the sky and cause him to be greatly harmed if not for his one and only resistance to an element, and her field that made everything retarded. Being limited was one thing Colin could not stand; he was an Eagle. Eagle's soared; they were not held down and caged up. Nor would Colin Washi, his eyes narrowing as he cautiously watched their enemy, be caged away…
Speaking of which, he looked over at Kanda, biting his lip. This could be bad. He thought as he suddenly vanished for a moment, wishing he was able to go faster as his foot caught Kanda in the chest, before flinging him waist first into another Garganta that had just finished opening behind him. He spoke simply as he kicked him. "Not today, Kandy. Not today." He said as his foot pushed Kanda into the Garganta, removing him from the fight as Colin's eyes looked back over at Mana and Elizabeth, his body reappearing the same spot as before, his afterimage not even having time to fade before he reappeared...

Song: Unstable - Artist: Chaotica - Words In Post: 6289 - Template By: Myself
Things were certainly getting interested on this fair battlefield. Lots of bodies, tons of blood to be seen, devastating destruction all throughout the lands, high amounts of insanity everywhere and constant strife to go around for everyone. It was all too much for Mana, as she could only let out a laugh in awe of everything that was taking place before her very eyes. But then, with someone like The Demon Queen? Haha, her coverage spread furhter then just what the eyes could see. Viewing the entity of Madness City, through many extensions of herself, she was seeing all sorts disputes taking place throughout the city, all sorts of homicidal actions taking place and the sensations of madness gripping and crippling this fair town like a cobra constricting it's prey. It made The Queen grin like the wicked witch she was. It didn't matter if all her intentions didn't go according to her plan. At this point? All that mattered was living in the moment and trying to rack up the highest points possible in this game called life.
So it was time to let loose of any restraints, get with the flow of hysteria and have a damn good time. Taking a glance to her side, she would notice a newcomer on to the field based on her perception of this entire city in the first place. "Hehehehe, I saw that." Cackled Mana as she took a strong notice of just what Elizabeth was doing to her magic. By using the augmented processing spell she previously casted on herself to analyze the depths of the black blood, she began to apply this knowledge to the field around her. In other words, she was using this increased calculating speed to decipher all that was going on in the world around her. And for now? Everything was simply focused on all that is occurring within this city. Thus, without a moment's waste, Mana gave a sinister snicker as she started to realize that this new challenger was clearly changing the values around herself, the alterations her demon magic had set forth in reality and was somehow able to bypass her influence entirely.
'It may boogle the mind, but I am of more then one being.' Licking her lips, she then could see her own internal world flashing about and dancing around in the confines of her head. All the millions upon millions of souls she consumed; it was bit a simple feat for her to apply this same speed to have a freakishly enhanced sense of perception, analytic skills and "hyper senses" to her body and all extensions of herself. "Let's get it a whirl, boys." Twirling her finger around, Mana decided not to use her magic this time, but actually make good utilization of her energy control this time around. By influencing the forces that comprise reality and the world we all see around us? 'Twas but a simple gesture for her to begin commanding these constructs to render Elizabeth's "Truth" invalid by seemly "locking out" that power. How would this be done? 'Tis another simple explanation. Every time that Elizabeth should try to bend the Truth to her fitting? Mana would utilize her demigod-like ciphering to create a "negation" event.
One should think of this in terms of sonar. Each time Miss Elizabeth releases a "blip" in the given area Mana commanded this force to oversee? An opposing force would be generated to null those effects and negate it. Similar to the light and shadow's nuling each other's existence upon contact? This would take the concept of "Truth" and pit it against the concept of a "Lie" to have each dazzlingly cancel out the others effects; hopefully being more then enough to render Elizabeth's bypass-system ineffective for the time being. Though, if one should try to tamper with this field? There were additional assessments put in place in order to prevent this from easily being stopped. The first of these assessments would be a damage effect. Each time said power ,which was used to bypass Mana's Magic, is activated? There would be a surge of damage impacted upon her energy reserves, physical being and whatever keeps that dear body of hers together. This would mean there is the chance for her to get pass these effects, but it would ultimately cause her to take some strain, damage and tire out.
So, with that said, the ball would be in her court as far as that adjustment was concerned. "So you wanna play with me, sugah' gal?" Chuckling a bit at the entrance of Elizabeth, Mana seemed to be slightly amused with her antics and would humor her as such. "Then let's dance, hunny." Licking her claws, Mana then pointed her hands out towards the direction of this new opponent who appeared to summon some additional assistance to her side. "Though, I wouldn't talk about ugliness." Not seeming to care much about all the weapons steadily heading towards her side, Mana could only laugh at this feeble attempt to cause damage to her. "After all, I'm not the one who looks like I just got out of a fight with a dumpster truck and LOST!" Pushing her hands outward, there seemed to be a temporary "shift" in the area, before there was a sudden change in Mana's body.
If one were to pay attention, there had been a brief instance in time where perception and the flow of time itself was severely delayed. During this moment? Mana had adjusted the space around herself to move at an altered rate of time. This allowed her to quickly conjure up a separate body for herself, exit from the back of the current body whom was doing combat with Colin and could be seen letting off a sinister laugh when this sudden "fluctuation" had ended. Meanwhile, the Mana whom was currently doing combat could only grin with a sinister glow as she saw all the weapons heading towards her. "BOOM SHAKALAKALKA"Was all she said, opening her mouth and controlling the forces that be around her with her booming command. Once the laws of physics were under the subjection of this Mana's control within a limited vicinity, she began to utilize kinetics to conjure up a "reflection" force to send all the weapons back towards wherever Elizabeth would appear.
Then, by taking the kinetics produced from their immense speed, Mana doubled the speed of these weapons; thus increasing the overall impact damage these would make on any given target. However, this wasn't the end of the modifications. To make sure nothing tricky was done, The Queen began to switch out the psychokinetic control these objects were under and forced the influence away; similar to someone with a scalpel simply peeling away a nasty scab on their skin. So now, with these tools under her control, Mana would have them lock on with the energy resonating from Elizabeth to follow her no matter which location she happened to shift to. As, with the more kinetic energy they draw? The more power they have to deal with. Meaning, that if she were to teleport? These tools could tap into the needed abilities of Mana, use their own fuel generated by kinetic energy and then use their own teleporation ability to keep up with her. In addition to that, if these made impact? They would attempt to shatter her very soul.
Even if one weapon were to make contact, they'd attempt to damage Elizabeth on a physical and metaphysical level. Causing damage to her physical body to make it difficult to fight, decrease her speed and overall cause devastating pain to her body. While, on a spiritual side, the more impacts she takes? The more her energy reserves begin to tank, the difficulty in using her powers would surge and hopefully she'd have to resort to something serious to keep fighting against Mana. More then that, however, these objects would also be subjected to the same alterations in the area as Mana did with Elizabeth's power. Translating into the fact, that if she should try to alter the course of these objects through her power? Then it would still cause damage to Elizabeth on a physical and metaphysical level based on the command Mana had over existence itself in the area and the vast difference in power the two currently had.
"Have fun with that, dear." With that said, zooming towards the Mana whom took flight, she observed the entirety of this vicinity. "Such beautiful explosions taking place. The city is thriving with madness, and my heart can hear it bleeding out for joy. Oh my, oh my, this is too much!" Cackling some more, Mana rubbed her belly before taking a soft glance towards the central government building with a sinister sneer in her eye. "All will soon be revealed anyway, so let's have some more fun, darlin'!" Shifting back towards the Mana whom was fighting against Colin and repelling the attacks Elizabeth had made, she didn't seem to be phased much by what Colin was doing with his counters against her. In fact, she seemed a bit...too relaxed given the circumstances of this entire ordeal. She could only keep snickering, laughing and indulging Colin's in his manevours to evade the full impact of Mana's previous assaults against him. It was like watching a mouse move about through a series of mazes before finally reaching the cheese he so desperately sought out.
...but in this scenario? Once the mouse had found the cheese? Hehe, you could say the subject in this experiment would become smoked cheese himself. "Attacking me from behind? Well, that isn't very gentlemen like of you at all, Colin-Wolin!" Said Mana in a taunting tone. Even while under the threat of destruction, she seemed to be ever so casual as she let out a laugh while he was gathering energy to destroy her. "Alas, something like that? Sugah, to be frank, that isn't going to do jackshit."Getting ready to strike herself, Mana got the needed counter measures to deal with Colin's assault in place. "I suppose I should let you end on some of the delicious honey that is my power." Smiling slyly, Mana was impressed with the power radiating from Colin's Bankai and mask. "After all, you've gone through all the trouble to show me the best dance moves you could put forth to amuse me, why should I not do the same? Let's have some more fun in this waltz between life and death."
Thus, at the same time Colin had released his two RA bombs? Two holes from the back of Mana had instantly opened up and shot out two waves of darkness which absolutely outclassed the two assaults Colin had made against her. How so? Well, at the moment, Mana had more energy then she knew how to deal with. Add to the fact she is somewhat stronger then Colin and had a greater knowledge of the extent of her powers? And well, heh, you got a concoction for disaster. Simply by outmatching the two assaults in pure power, Mana was able to swiftly cancel out their effects the minute these two attacks had collided with one another. And, with her power being the dominant one in this situation? This pactiular Mana was able to escape any collateral damage that resulted; as, for a two hundred meter radius, everything was utterly obliterated by these attacks smashing against one another with such force. Whistling a bit, Mana made this comment. "If you were just a wee bit stronger, I'm unsure how that little collusion would have turned out."
Giggling now, she then used her own speed to appear one hundred feet in the air; discarding her tentacles and letting whatever happens to them, happen to them. As, at this point, they were of no further use to her as she was done toying around with her food. "You can't hide from me, my lovely Colin-Kun." Sounding more cold then her usual perky self, Mana seemed to gradually be shifting towards a more serious demeanor as this childish Kidō trick was nothing to her. "Ye' dare call yourself a magical practitioner, when you clearly leave yourself wide open?" With a mixture between taunting, somberness and her casual witty self; Mana clearly wasn't amused much with the actions Colin had decided to take against her. Thus, not to waste much time, Mana tapped into the same field she utilized to hopefully stop Elizabeth's attacks and then proceeded to take it on a metaphysical level in order to activate a sort of "heat-vision outlook."
It is known that Kidō is never as strong without the full incantation, so with this knowledge in mind, Mana knew there was going to be some sloppiness in this technique. While it may hold the capacity to hide the intended target away from sight by bending light and masking their spiritual pressure OR other physical senses, Mana was able to use her magic to simply search for him on a higher dimensional level. Going back to the sonar-system she used with Elizabeth, think of Colin as a blip on this screen. On a physical level? Yes, he was hidden from all sight, sound and other senses of perception. Yet, he failed to perform the most important part of this...masking his energy. Thus, with that lack of attention to detail, Mana was able to easily locate his position and zoom in on it as such. So, before he could even get close enough to Toki for him to attack said barrier? Heh, Mana was already put in place to stop her efforts as she was seen with her arms folded and a truly nasty grin on her face; eyes gleaming with obvious disdain for his attempts to save his friend.
"Waaaaaastefuuuuul actioooooon." Throwing his own words back at him, Mana proceeded to go on with the counter attack and summon the body of a massive menos, whom was slain during Kanda's entrance, to take the brunt of the damage Colin's feathers had inflicted. Then, with her command over the area, it only took a few milliseconds to go on on and conjure up a black space that took the form of a sphere around the feathers and now dead Menos. With the summoning of this void space? She was able to conjure up a magical spell to teleport them in the deepest pits of space to rot for all eternity. Then, not to give him any time to think, Mana was able to sense the distortion in the space behind TOki. How was this? Again, referring back to the point of her influence covering the city upon her entrance, Mana had a fairly good perception of a hundred mile region in a circular shape.
Therefore, it was rather easy to adjust the values in the reality around them to simply "lock off" the Garganta from opening. Think of it as a firewall preventing any sort of spacial distortion, outside of Mana's command, from appearing within a confined region where Colin and Toki presently were. This should be more then enough to stop the presence of this portal from occurring."Again, Waaaaaastefuuuuul actioooooon." Sounding more rough then previously; Mana's voice had a more sinister and raspy tone to it then ever before; as it seemed demeanor was growing more and more serious. By the time Colin had shot off his Hadō One blast, Mana was still standing much unfazed by his actions and had enough perception to view the attack as it came towards her. With that said, she truly did not feel anything else was needed to counter the attack. So, holding out her right hand, she swiftly grabbed the Kidō blast with her bare hand. Then? She tossed it aside like a rag doll back towards Toki's location; having her influence of energy spread throughout it and rendering control from Colin, at this point, void.
And, since she had more then enough energy to spare? She decided to augment the strength of this blast with enough force, between Colin and Mana, to utterly crush Toki Iramasha. Therefore, if he got hit with this attack? This should be an end game, as between these two, it had enough energy to critically injure any of the current Shadow Espada. As, when this thing makes contact, a massive cloud of destruction filled with smoke, debris, ash and fire will erupt and hopefully put an end to any further attempts at Toki's hand of staying in this battle. Meanwhile, the two shadow blast she previously shot off at the noble Iramasha would also descend upon him and hopefully put an end to any other futile resistance from him. Taking him out of this battle completely if all attacks should go as planned and leaving him in a crater of his blood, bones, guts, fire, rubble and his own miserable self to blame for his poor choice in actions while fighting against the Queen of Demon's. "Time for those who aren't suited for the dancefloor, TO LEAVE!" Having her entire right arm transform into a strange green and black liquid, she swiftly commanded it to extend towards the location where Kanda had been thrown. In this instant, she would then turn it into a head which had hundreds of eyes and a massive mouth filled with many sharp razor teeth. "You aren't fit enough for this dance floor sugah, so drop dead!" In one massive chomp, Mana then proceeded to make an attempt at consuming the body of Kanda Yuu into her being. Should this prove successful? She planned to eat this man alive and add her to hive of souls as another familiar to her collection. While hopefully munching on the remains of Kanda as she quickly retracted her arm back to her side, Mana turned her direct attention towards Kanda as she now grinned with wild bloodlust in her eyes and was ready to take him head on with no games.
However, this would be the end of her attacks. As, with Colin's fatigued state, a third Mana would arise from the shadow's. At speeds that seemly surpassed Colin, due to her creating a sense of "Hyper acceleration" throughout her body by accelerating the flow of time around her body, this third Mana would go on to grab Colin by his throat."You're coming with me rather you like it or not. I have no further interest in dealing with you all collectively." With that said, she squeezed his neck so hard she was pretty much hoping to draw blood with the razor sharp gauntlets around her wrists. "Shift." In a matter of milliseconds, Mana had the same blackness which transported the Menos Grande, whom took Colin's feathers earlier, around her and The Mighty Vizard. Then, in a massive boom, they were plunged into the Shadow World that Mana knew how to move throughout so easily as she made slight hissing noises at the transition in their environment.
In the short amount of time it took to possibly place Colin and her within this space, they had traveled thousands upon thousands of miles away from Madness City; as the energies that were growing there grew very dim. To the point of them feeling like they were worlds away. However, the applications she placed on Madness City appeared to be put in place here as well. Meaning, the limiters are still set within this unknown space they appear to be travelling through at break neck speeds. "Let the shadow's bind you, twine you and ensnare you in their endless darkness." Taking advantage of Colin's weakened state, Mana then swiftly had her hand attempt to pierce his stomach or anywhere near there. Should this make contact, or even graze Colin, this would attempt to bind the Vizard's Soul Chain to neutralize all of his powers; at the very least forcing him to go out of Bankai + Mask. To help ensure that this action would take place? She'd then have all the shadows around them begin to restrain Colin in the form of hundreds of chain to hold him in place.
Breathing heavily, you could hear the intensity of Mana she glared upwards towards Colin."Poor bird boy, trapped within a cage with no way out...." Licking her lips, she'd then go on to readjust the values in this space to prevent any outsiders who could harness the power of the shadow's from entering into this section of the Shadow World. As, at this point, they were dimensions apart from Earth and in a space not many have ventured to. With only the likes of Ketsu or Matthew Hinote knowing it's existence. "Now just drop dead as we end this waltz." Finishing that statement, Mana then formed a lance comprised of Shadow's and went to pierce Colin's chest. If this should make contact? It could be a game charger; as she is hoping to cause critical damage on a physical and spiritual level for Colin. Disappointing the rest of his energy reserves, inflicting near life-threatening injuries on his being and nulling out most of his racial or special powers at this point. "The world of the shadows is a cold place. A fitting place for a burial...." Clenching her fist, she then rewrote the values around them to bypass Colin's Anti-Gravity field to put the finishing touch in the beginning of the end for him and make him experience the needed pain he missed out on.
It was all but utter chaos within the confines of Madness City. However, something far more sinister was brewing within the heart of this metropolis. Contained inside of the bowels of the Government Building? Something wicked was about to be brought up to the surface for all to pay tribute to. While most of the strongest fighters in the city were busy dealing with the threats they perceived on the surface, the real Demon Queen was busy going to town on the source of all this...mania. Yes, with the synchronization of her clones, she too possessed the needed knowledge of the wicked Madness Blood in order to tame it. Thus, with her ability to easily bend her body to her will? The bits of black blood she had previously injected into the building were being sent through every power line, every bit of ground, through particles in the air and ultimately throughout every square inch of this pit of utter hell known as Madness City. In other words, this whole time? Mana has kept a careful eye on all of the events transpiring in Madness City and has ultimately prepared herself for her end game plan to be put into motion.
"I feel it consuming me, I can sense it drawing towards me and I know it will become one with me. Yes, yes. This waltz in the night is enticing me, binding me and infusing me with the madness that's screamed in my heart long before this hollow's eve." Eyes gleaming a gem green glow within the shadow's, Mana was seen having her tongue extend for several feet before letting out a "hissing" sound to release her internal pleasure. Now was the time to take the impressive processing conversion she subjected the Mad Blood through, Madness City and all that makes this entire insanity gimmick work. All made quite possible through her extremely capable magical prowess. Imagine Shadin Yuudeshi's processing power, but being applied to the world around her in order to break down something, understand it better, get a grasp of how it functions and ultimately produce the needed skills to either tame it, make it her own or reproduce it herself.
Thus, by sitting in the shadow's and biding her time appropriately, The Demon Queen has gained an in-depth knowledge of the root of madness. And with it? Heh, the primary objective of coming to Madness City being one step closer to becoming fully realized. "It's time for me to move." And with that said, it appeared that her body was seen swiftly seen turning into a black liquid that began to spread throughout the Central Government Building. Through her bodily manipulation, the Queen was steadily beginning to break down her core into a fluid substance to make the next phase in her plan become set in motion. "I want to dine in your flesh, while you dine in mine. I want to become one with you, as you become one with me. There is no beginning, nor is there an end; there is simply the void of madness spiraling on for an eternity. Cast about all worries, so that we may us thrash about, make a holler and cackle like a pack of wild hyenas as we share this gambol in the night of delusions and lunacy!"
Following those shivering words, the respites of Mana's soul began to increase in intensity and quickly consumed the entire Central Government building in a massive geyser-like explosion. And,like shit hitting the fan, insane amounts of demonic energy crippled and distorted Madness City. Though, before it hit, there was a mass warning throughout the entirity of this town to give it's citizens, denizens and all those watching a heads up."It comes. The dance of death is upon us. The hounds of hades will waltz throughout the night and all hell will be unleashed." From the shadow's, yet another Mana was seen standing atop one of the tallest buildings in Madness City as she smiled ever so elegantly at the Central Governmental Building. "From this point onward? We dance in the bowels of death itself."Holding her hands out with quite the grin on her face, there was only one thing left thing to."So, let all hell be unleashed!"And with that said, the original Mana began to spread her black liquid all throughout madness city as her attack had finally been set into motion.
Rising to the sky like a Tsunami, it crashed in every direction, with the epicenter being in the Central Government office. From there? It began engulfing the entire city, for as far as the high can see, in this strange black liquid which emitted a green glow. If nobody moved out of the way? Then they would be consumed in this fluid as well. As, even if you had the slightest inkling of spiritual awareness? You'd know better then to not get out of the way of this. For, this attack was seen consuming everything on ground level from Madness City. It ate through the concrete, it consumed the articular of the city, it devoured most reishi, it intertwined with the madness itself and a good number of it's citizens or those infected with the madness were seeing being eaten alive by Mana. Yes, THAT IS CORRECT. What is occurring now? The total decimation of Madness City. All of it was being consumed into the belly of the beast; swirling into a black sea of raw power as Mana's influence spread for far and wide.
It was truly a sight to behold as thousands of vehicles, buildings, children, men, women and other casualties alike were sucked into the center and eaten alive by Mana. There were millions of these people or things that ended up in the jaws of The Demon Queen as she swarmed about the city. Even the jem that started all of this madness? Yes, even that would be taken by her jaws as SHE BECAME THE FIELD OF MADNESS AROUND THIS CITY. All of it, all of it and more were becoming intertwined with her as she devoured the entirety of this cities core. So, without even giving people time to have a brief release, Mana instantly put the field back into place as SHE BECAME the source of Madness throughout this city as her laughs could be echoed for miles and miles; energy sky rocketing to levels not felt since the battle of London held one year ago.
"Yet again, the world shall fall to my knees in a dazzling waltz throughout hades. I shall become the top player and I'll crush any who dare oppose this." Giggling about, the Mana whom announced the end was now seen flapping her wings as she narrowly avoided becoming consumed by this massive attack. Meanwhile, The Real Mana at the center of all this was becoming a force so strong, her spiritual energy radiated with a tense illumination that could be seen within space. As, once the process of devouring the city was complete, the skies of Madness City turned blood red and into a spiraling cloud that resembled a hurricane; with a black, red and green glow radiating from the core of Madness City. Grinning quite wickedly, the True Queen was seen rising to the stage as the landscape began to change. The black liquid now was now green in color, the skies changed from blood red to dark green and soon....her familiars were summoned to the field.
Thousands upon thousands of skeleton beast rose from the water, an endless series of chains spiraled throughout the city and soon the entire landscape of Madness City was nothing more then a smoldering crater filled to the brim with this fluid, Mana's energy, her familiars and a spiraling set of chains being seen all throughout the lands. With that, her actions had finished and she was at a pinnacle of power that was even difficult for her to tame. "The Madness is apart of me, for I am the madness. We have fused our souls, merged our minds and have become one...." She stated, having an odd exhaust of flames extend from her right eye. Soon, these flames became green in color and her power began to go off the charts yet again; making the entirety of Madness City rumble, shake and crumble in the wake of her new found power. "Yet again....I feel the mania gripping me, binding me and taking me whole. It all feels too right, Touketsu." Smiling at the sky, she knew that her plans would soon draw to a close.
Yet, before that could happen, she knew the consequences of her actions would be steadily catching up to her. So, with her smile fading, The Queen took a hard breath and let them wash over her like a dark surge. Sensations of pain buzzed throughout her head, echoing the reciprocation of using a processing power far beyond her capacity. The pain was nearly blinding, as the vision that laid before her eyes faded in and out. "That's right, grip harder..." She muttered, steadily feeling the waves of pain soar throughout her entire being now; even being visible seen. As, the area around Mana? It was steadily beginning to become heavily distorted as her own energy could be felt moaning in agony. Breathing a bit more heavily, as if she were labored, Mana still maintained that in control visage as she once again made that wicked grin emerge on her face. "...bind me, like I've bonded you." It was clear that, even with someone like Mana, there were still limitations to this kind of power as she threw up a bit of a black blood.
Staring at the sea of destruction she caused, it was a wonder if she wasn't outright destroyed. So, with her feeling such constrictions all throughout her actual being, Mana had no choice but to simply focus on her own. Knowing what this meant, all of her clones got into position. From the Mana currently fighting against Colin in the Shadow World, to the one whom devoured the Sexta Espada whole and the last two steadily watching the swift consumption of Madness City take place. They were all informed of the burden in which they placed on Mana. And as such? Were cut off from the source of seemly endless energy that radiated from her being at this point. Leaving them in whatever state they happened to be in and forced to fend for themselves at this point. "I am sorry, my dear sisters, but it is time we accelerate this diddy. And to so? Losses must be made. It'll all work out." Chuckling grimly, Mana placed her back against a nearby wall in the structure she comprised for herself in the center of Madness City, or what was hopefully left of it.
"Ah well, I should probably get ready to attack. After all, I'm gonna need to protect my high score after doing all that damage." Cracking her neck, Mana used limited amounts of healing magic in order to ease the afflictions of her body and stood ever so valiantly in the center of this structure now. 'Heh, might be best to stop playing around soon and finish the damned thing.' Closing her eyes, Mana began to visualize what was going to be needed to close the victory in this city. In her stressed state, she still believed that her power would be able to handle most threats that happen to be tossed in her path. Add to the fact she felt a sudden increase in the energy supplies she had? And well, it's just a matter of simply getting over the side effects of her actions to seize the dawn. If push came to shove, there was always an outlet Mana could turn to as images of a scythe were imprinted into her mind, while a smug smirk came to the surface of Mana's face.
"Whatever may come of these actions? I welcome them. I implore them to seek me out. And I hope to destroy them. After all, there is nothing much more left in this afflicted life." Stating some vaguely grim thoughts there, Mana began to laugh a bit as she seemed to be suffering a peculiar mental anguish. "Kill, be killed and kill again. There is nothing more to this game. Destruction, strength, dominance and maintaining the high score is all that really matters. Everything else is just a fleeting reaction of those who try to entrust that there is more to life then the absolution of death." Moving her head around a bit, she began to fell a bit queasy before making a sudden shift downward to stare blankly at the ground. "So, let us make merry, feast from the blood of our enemies and cherish this time before death takes us all. Even the gods themselves are not immune from this end all. Everything has to come it's demise, so why shouldn't I claim this for myself?"
Now, at this point, there had appeared to be a sudden fluctuation in the frequency, strength and overall feeling of Mana's power. It seemed, that through the endless masses that she devoured, there was still...something entirely off about there. It was hard to pin-point for inexperienced combatants, but veterans of the spiritual realm could detect there was another power, deep, deep, deep within Mana. One that felt almost the same as the Demon Queen herself, but...of a pure variety. It would seem totally bizarre for something this... vibrant...this...holy...to be felt within such a vile beast. Yet, there it was, staring the vicious Demon Queen in the face. "After hundreds of years, you still persist on trying to thwart my plans....?" Slowly rising her head up, it seemed the respites in Mana's soul began to lessen as her face grew more void. "...sweet Haniel, you still cling to my soul...?" As a cold wind blew throughout the area, a soft sigh escaped Mana's lips as she knew what these swells in her power spelled out for her.
Images piecing together, thoughts becoming solid and the outcome becoming more clear: Haniel Iahhel was still alive. In the internal scenery within Mana's mind, there was a vision of this girl sleeping. The girl looked all too similar to Mana, but all too distant as well. It was difficult to see with a bridal veil over her head, but her hair was so very similar to the Queen's, but appeared to be much less wavy then the Queen's. While having horns upon the top of her head, wings spouting from the back of her and vicious claws to match this demonic appearance, they were still very different then The Queen's; all being bright green in color and much more prominent in her design then Mana's. And, despite wearing the same type of gothic-dress attire as The Queen, even this deviated from her as it was now more dark green than the traditional black as Mana. The sleeves of this dress were even larger, having green frills attached at the ends, and her skirt having longer and larger with white frills. While leggings of her outfit were frilled at the ends, which were held by green rose-like ribbons and matched greatly with her cross-laced ankle ribbons, and green-heeled footwear.
With the mental images of Haniel fully processed, Mana seemed very disconnected with the world around her. "...well, isn't this just special...little girl still has some fight left." Was all she could really say at this turn events. Even she wasn't quite sure as to why this would be occurring now. All those years ago, all those hundreds of years, she had thought that this chapter of her life was put to an end by her Demon God. And now, seemly from nowhere, she returns to meddle with Mana's affairs? What kind of sick joke is this? The illness that this child radiated made The Queen all but sick; making her want to physically vomit again at the thought of what this might entail for her future.
Heh, the road to hell is always paved with the unexpected.

Subject Post 13Subject: Re: The Watchman, Fallen Angel (Madness City Event Open) Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:09 pm
Toki Iramasha Heir to the Iramasha Guard
"Well isn't the world just going to hell now." Toki would say to himself, losing hope of himself.
Oh yes everything was definately going to hell as Toki sat with his barrier trying to hold himself together at the moment. The angel Iramasha was the weakest on the field at the moment and this was not a great honor in anyway. Rather it was a burden as he wasn't able to stand up to Mana's overwhelming power and had people like Colin worrying about his safety on the battlefield. This was not the way things usually went for someone like him, he was a leader and a proud warrior of the Iramasha Clan. He would be helping to protect others on the battlefield, not getting protected by others from the enemy. Althrough Toki has never had to deal with someone like the demon queen before and this was just what has happened from the start to him. He hasn't really been harmed by Mana but he knew that practically every blow from her is going to inflict critical damage on him and maybe even have a chance of killing him on contact. This battle in the start of a great war, was already one that Toki was useless in practically as he waited within a barrier. He was as useless as the average human in the year 2012 and that was pretty dam useless in this situation and time.
"What was th point of joining this battle?" He asked himself.
Toki was lost in his mind as he pondered this question with the short time left for him to live perhaps in the world. An angel Iramasha, has lost his purpose for fighting in the battle and couldn't quite figure out why. Something deep inside of him awakened through as the answer presented itself to him as a younger version of himself from a memory spoke in his mind.
" I shall serve the clan until my death, I shall never give up on the objective, I promise...." It said to him.
The flame with Toki now relit as he started to remember his childhood and how it was all spent for one purpose to train him for foes that would be much more stronger than him. He had trained his mindset to overcome the obstacles in front of him, to never show a fear of dying so long as his goal was complete. He would never give in to the forces that now surrond him in every direction nearly. The path to completeing his objective was filled with traps,turns and dead ends. This didn't discourage him any longer as he got his calm look back on his face as he prepared to be unleashed from his cage, that he himself had put himself in. It was about time that he rejoined this fight and he would be fully prepared to fight on. He would not allow someone like Mana or Colin discourage him from this fight, if he died so be it. All he wanted now was to see the look on Mana's face of defeat and loss but if he died before that he would love to just know what she would eventually face defeat.
"I'm just waiting now." He stated within the barrier.
He quickly released to his second form as he gained two sets of winds cand a ssort ment of colors to cover the wings, his hair, and his halo above his head as the transformation was completely finished. Toki was on his max level of power so far in all area and he couldn't go any further as this was as far as he got with his forms. He quickly felt a disturbance in space behind him as everything was coming apart around him, nothing was quite right as nothing really became of that distrubance behind him. But now he found his barrier broken and a attack enhance greatly coming straight at him, everything was just going splendid as ever. Very quickly in his actions, Toki focused his chaos warp on the Kidō in front of him even with it's overall power boosted he was still able to slow it down with his mastery of chaos warp, giving him a chance to escape his once sealed prison. He flew high up into the sky at his top speed not really looking back for shit flying his way as the world around him was already in hell as he had believed. The Kidō would be completely dodged as it passed him by and would probably hit the next avaliable target around him at the time.
" I'm free once more." He would yell out first as he flew up.
"Colin, I understand your concern for my life, but put your own ahead of mine and if I die here so be it, but lets at least make this queen of demons pay for London, here, and every other place she has caused pain and misery for others!" He yelled out to his Vizard ally.
This was turning out rather nicely except for all the hell that was still left to be unleashed on this lost city in place nearly forgotten b the rest of the planet. Their are very few that would ever find interest in a place like this one in the first place and now even fewer would want to come for a visit anytime soon. It was becoming a battleground in more than one way with a main event being the demon queen's pressence in the city. If the demon queen being present didn't make this a living hell than he didn't know what quite was hell anymore and what defined it as such a hated place. For the angel Iramasha he was just try to escape with his life as he now tried racing for the boarder of this city and wouldn't look back for any attempts of stopping him by Mana as he needed no time to deal with her tricks at the moment.
"I can't help straightfoward, but I can provide somekind of assistance from a exteremly far distance perhaps and the further from Mana the better." He told himself.
When Toki turned his back to face the outside of Madness City, he saw the black waves coming at him and all hell was now unleashed from it's cell as this was purely destruction as Toki was now in a race for his life as he knew that a black liquid never brought good results to something like an angel Iramasha. The very thought of it doing something else beside harm was insane for him and wasn't likely to occur in his mind or even consider it.
"Why does all the bad shit have to be tossed my way?" He asked as he continued to watch the waves.
Is this one of Mana' attacks because this was just enormous compared to her others a bit but he could believe it was with her doing. After all Toki had already made it clear that this attack was nothing good for him and never possible could be. The angel Iramasha fled once more not allowing this thing a chance to creep up on him, as this ability was ridiculous compared to everything else he has seen so far. How was Mana getting all this power and would this drain her at all from causing something like this after eveything was done. Using some level of chaos warp once again he hoped to slow the waves down a bit to allow his escape more successful but he wasn't certain if Mana or these waves would allow such a thing to happen.
Either way things were going to go for Toki, he wasgoing to give up aso easily and he wasn't going to leave or die without giving a good fight. Perhaps if Mana gives him problems from such a long distance that he was aiming for Toki would leave the city limits and proceed to return to the Soul Society and tell someone of what has happened. Actually he was right now thinking of ways to send this battle to others and Toki propsed the best way in his mind and used a Chaos Link with anyother avaliable Iramasha at the time to do so. Everything he was now experiwncing was being sent to others to be sent to anyone that could be told.
"So what is the next move in this battle?" He stopped speaking with.

"After all, I'm not the one who looks like I just got out of a fight with a dumpster truck and LOST!" Bitch. Hiding an obviously undignified scowl on her face, Elizabeth resisted the urge to teleport up there and slap her in her smug fucking face. However, she would stand there and watch as a strange pulse of energy was suddenly released from the Mana-bitch. As she watched the weapons she had just commandeered fly past the woman, her eyes slightly widened; Elizabeth swallowing back a bit of bile from the knowledge of what had just occurred. "Tch. So, that's your game-plan, eh?" Elizabeth--Truth--was certainly not a stranger to ripping someone's energy off of them and using it against their will. However, for someone to do this so callously, she had to be certain of her own power. Sighing softly, she would immediately take a stance with her book in her right hand, the pages flipping over and over of their own accord. "It is true that these weapons are coming at me, however it is also true that they will never to--AUGH!" Shouting out in pain with a shock that travelled through her body, Elizabeth staggered back as the weapons flew towards her, still gaining speed and kinetic energy. Confusion spread through her mind like a wild fire, trying to discern the reasoning behind this sudden and unusual pain.
Feeling pinpricks in the back of her neck, Elizabeth could only grimace to herself as she dived to the side from the first of the two weapons, watching them stream past her and back into the sky, turning around with a large arc that insinuated a lack of total control. Alright. The fact that they were coming towards her directly meant that they were no longer under her control, but they were also not under Mana's control either--in fact, she wouldn't be so wrong to surmise that they were, above all else, homing in on her location and energy--an energy which she only barely gave off too, making this all-the-more difficult. The fact that she couldn't use her abilities without feeling an additional drain and pain meant that Mana was holding a grip over the general reality of the area as well. "Just what have you created, Touketsu..." With her face contorted into annoyance, Elizabeth stood up straight and sighed. "Okay, I think I understand now." Quickly using her own mind to formulate a plan, Elizabeth watched as the next few weapons began bearing down upon her. Keeping the book open, Elizabeth grinned--"It's true that I can see, but it is also true that I have an incredibly sharp perception of momentum and force!"
With a small twitching pain in the back of her mind, Elizabeth laughed softly as what appeared to be several numbers and directions appeared in her vision. She watched them go hazy for a second, attempting to be overwritten by the will of the world, as far as she could surmise--this would've been what Mana did to reality. A Perfect Antithesis, trying to overwrite her "truth" with a "lie", as if she were dousing "fire" with "water". However, there were several issues with this. The first of all of these issues was the simplest: It wasn't that easy. After about a quarter--if even that--of a second, Elizabeth's sight would return to normal, and the display would come back up once more? However, why would this be the case? That's because there is no distinct opposition to a 'truth', even one that's been modified. While one can surmise that there is the 'lie', that could not ever be truly false. In order to understand a lie, one must understand a truth, which means that the lie... is almost always a fabricated truth. If trying to overwrite the truth with a false truth, the reality will always be put forth--the only exception to this rule is Elizabeth, who completely overwrites the 'real' truth with another 'real' truth. To put it in another way:
'If you eliminate the impossible, what remains, no matter how improbable, is always the truth.'
As soon as it was recognized by the world (not Mana's modification, but the very basal existence of such) that Elizabeth's small modification was, indeed, reality, it allowed it to continue, despite the "lie" that Mana had tried to write over it with. It was unlikely that this would work for anything much greater than this, since Mana's strangle-hold was still far more powerful than Elizabeth at this time. Grimacing, she stepped back and watched the approaching weapons with a sigh. The first three bore down upon her; Elizabeth watching and waiting until the absolute last millisecond, at which point she moved less than a metre to the left. The weapons, moving at too great a speed to be able to adjust their course in time, drove themselves into the ground with a mighty crash, knocking Elizabeth back with their own kinetic force. She yelped and fell on her butt, groaning--but it had worked. Because they'd crashed into the ground, all kinetic energy was lost and they could no longer move. If she'd bother to, Mana could easily get control of them again, but it was likely that she wouldn't attempt to waste energy on something that had failed before.
Happy over her personal victory but still well-aware of the impending danger, Elizabeth made to quickly get to her feet with a 'hup'. At that second, she felt the streaking of force go down behind her, barely missing her back and crashing into the ground with another massive crash. She yelped at this once more, tumbling over and using her new-found momentum to pick herself up quickly. "Come on, you bumbling fool." Five weapons remained of the nine she'd thrown at Mana. Out of those five, two were coming from her left and right sides respectively. The other three were attacking from above, streaming at a speed that would destroy this form in an instant, breaking open and revealing something that this world was not ready for yet. Right now, she was more worried about getting out of the way, so as soon as they were within the proper calculation range, she quickly made several checks with this newfound optical thingy. Yes, she would call it a thingy. These checks brought up a favorable result--all five weapons would converge upon her at the same time. Knowing that she'd be unable to dodge them with a simple movement, Elizabeth quickly got out her book, materializing it into the air once more. "It is true that I am standing here..." Not long now... as the weapons came closer and closer, Elizabeth felt her heart pounding in her chest, "It is also true, however, that I am standing two metres north from this position!'"
With the statement spoken, Elizabeth's form suddenly faded into nothingness for less than a second, the weapons disappearing as well (unbeknownst to her). She remateralized about two metres away, before feeling it--well, not feeling it. But it hit her, or, should I say, they did. With a great kinetic explosion, Elizabeth felt the multiple weapons crashing into her body, creating wounds deeper than any human should be able to survive. The weapons didn't stop, however, ripping straight through her body, turning it into about five pieces that just fell to the ground, lifeless. At that, it can safely be said that it would be the end of Elizabeth. No more energy would be released, and nothing more could be sensed from her. There were no life signs, nothing vital--she was completely and truly... dead.
Not completely, we should be honest and say. Although her life force and apparent existence were completely gone forever, they were disposable anyway, at the best. Instead, levitating not even ten centimetres above the shredded and bloody remains of Elizabeth was a small speck; so small that one wouldn't be able to pick it out unless they had the eyes and senses of a hawk, and so insignificant that one would have no way of really registering it as anything but a particle in the air. "Sigh." The particle spoke to nobody, with a voice that didn't spread any further than a centimetre from its self. "I really messed this body up, didn't I? Will I have to use my fullest power, or should I just allow this madness to continue without interfering?" "Time for those who aren't suited for the dancefloor, TO LEAVE!" Despite lacking eyes, ears or any sort of real cognitive function, the speck clearly perceived the actions of Mana's arm.
It turned into some creature that it couldn't quite understand with its limited function. Hundreds of eyes, a gigantic mouth, streaming towards the Arrancar, Kanda Yuu. At that millisecond, the moment Mana's arm-thing returned to her body.... Colin disappeared with another copy. "Wha...t?" Limited in function to being but a spectator in this madness, the thing that sat there started to raise into the air. It would still be impossible to consider this speck's existence; in fact with the death of Elizabeth and the rest of the chaos occurring? It was more than likely that Mana would be none the wiser to this. Not more than likely--almost certain. And then... it happend. The one thing that didn't need to happen. Rising from the Central Government Building like a tsunami, a great wave of black liquid started to spread out everywhere, threatening to completely consume the city. "...no. NO. I WON'T LET THIS HAPPEN! I will...."

"I will intervene."
At this millisecond, a great white light would suddenly spread out from that small speck that had risen into mid-air, 'facing' the Government building as the madness started to attempt to spread itself all over the city. This light spread out throughout the confines of Madenise City, drenching it in a light that cast away all shadows and darkness for a brief second. Those with the Madness within them, if looking into the light, would see clarity while it lasted. This light that did not blind, but guide instead. As the light spread outwards, it covered over the madness that had started to spread, with the True Mana at the centre. The Mad Black Liquid that had spread out would be permeated by a great and powerful glow, reaching into the very pinnacle of its existence, wiping out the control that Mana would've had over it. Although it could not destroy it so simply, this energy would start to freeze over the darkness, wrenching control of it away from Mana. It couldn't stop her from taking away the beings within about 40% of the city's limits--to the source of the light's regret--Mana would find that her control over this strange mess was fully lacking now--the incompatibility of this energy with the Demon Physiology would attempt to reject her from control. Of course, this being had already calculated for issues such as Mana--beings who could wrench the control and expel its energy anyway.
At the point of permeation, a strange program had been written into the energy, encrypted to levels that would take Shadin Yuudeshi at his fullest power at least half an hour to decode. Although, normally, it would be impossible: at this point in time, it is nothing but an undeniable 'truth' on the world, unable to be even rewritten by Mana's own power. While it was set to fixate upon Elizabeth's energy, her field wouldn't be able to recognize the source of this newfound energy, let alone sense it if it could. Because nothing would be able to sense the sheer power that this being was capable of using. At this point, one would have to ask: 'Who?'. Who would be capable of emitting such a powerful and strangely-cleansing light, causing this black mess to be frozen in place, almost as if it were a statue of sorts; a di-colored monument to the powers that had allowed for such a virus to break out.
As the great and cleansing light faded into nothingness and obscurity, the being that sourced this light would be seen--a great white pair of wings extending out behind him. Falling behind his head was a river of silver hair that flowed as if it were trailing from the very heavens itself; and a pair of silvery-white eyes, glowing with a mysterious aura, stared at Mana from the distance. Robes in the colors of blue-and-white draped his body, fluttering in the very brief wind that his wings had caused. As the being stared quietly at Mana and the destruction that she and her other selves had caused, one could tell that he had a gallant aura, yet one that was also jaded with existence itself. The being finally moved, lowering its head slightly and breathing out with a long sigh. "You know," It shook its head, speaking in perfect Japanese despite looking more foreign than one would expect, "I had always wondered why my brother's creations would be like. I certainly didn't expect this, though I guess I should've, especially seeing how mad he can be sometimes..." Sighing once more, a book slipped and appeared in his fingers.
"So, what do we have here... Ah." He chuckled dryly, shaking his head slowly. "Among all of his mad creations, I seem to have come across the maddest of them all. Mana herself. My, my." He laughed softly, shaking his head from side to side with wonderment. Such calmness in the face of this woman, that was for sure. However, why would he not be calm? He was confident, knowing that his existence surpassed hers by far. She had her hand in the cookie jar, but he was capable of breaking open that jar and making everything inside his anyway. His briefly closed his eyes and slowly started to approach the woman in her pedestal. His footsteps were not landing upon Reishi, but small circles that seemed to have a strange pattern covering them. His wings were outstretched and making long flapping motions, readying themselves for use. His clothing fluttered as he moved, and he let a low smile cross his lips.
"Brother probably hasn't informed you of my existence, though I'm far from surprised," a soft giggle, "My name is... let me state it simple. I am Veronis. I am also known as The Truth." A sudden burst of energy erupted from his body, and his movements would allow for no weakness to be seen. "And I am the harbinger of your demise." He grinned, suddenly flicking open another book with a soft laugh.
"Show me the path, give me a weapon to challenge Mana with!" There was no point going and trying to defeat her with any kind of magicks, even if he was perfectly capable of such a feat. Instead, he would fight her with his own two hands! Suddenly pushing off from his position, he charged towards Mana at a speed completely unexpected of someone of his size--while normally beings who looked as gaudy as he wouldn't be moving so speedy. The wings were outstretched and in his hands would appear a great hammer; reminiscent of the Norse Valkyries. His face was contorted into a shape of confidence; "Valopilkku!" The hammer was designed to be held with two hands, glowing with a bright white energy that seemed to repulse anything demonic by simply looking at it. His flight would carry him towards Mana, Truth remembering one of the few spells that he allowed himself to. "Demon Repelling Ward." Although few would be able to perceive it, a shield that would stop most of Mana's general shadow attacks would be erected around Truth's body as he flew towards Mana, landing on the platform and carrying himself towards her with a chuckle.
Using his increased momentum, The Truth would suddenly swing that hammer with surprising strength, in an attempt to bring it down upon her. If it collided--he knew that she'd likely have a trick up her sleeve in order to repel it. Insteard, he would disallow it from being brought down upon her, landing it on the ground between them with a shout. At that moment, he would step back and quickly flick a book out. "Restrain her!" From places unknown, a great deal of chains would suddenly appear, all of them streaming towards Mana's body, made of a substance that was glowing. This substance would burn the flesh of any Demon it came in contact with, causing a great deal of pain to them and restricting their movements further. Twelve chains spread out in total, three of them aimed at each limb in scattered step, so shielding from them would be a lot more difficult. Whether or not Mana took them at full strength, he would shout again, "Gungnir!" Summoning a powerful lance to his right hand, Truth looked nothing more than a being sent from heaven to smite down those that were considered 'evil'. Pulling his right arm back, he would immediately throw the weapon towards Mana's chest, aiming straight for where her heart should be. The weapon wouldn't be able to be controlled--more encryptions ensured that even Mana would have a hard time taking it away from him. Didn't mean she couldn't destroy it, however...
Text in white cannot be understood by anyone but Truth.

THE EAGLE GOD
CO-HEAD OF THE VIZARD CORPS
The Eaglegod watched as Toki began becoming overwhelmed by the sheer power of the queen of Demon's. He narrowed his eyes at her as he struck. That would assume that a gentleman is gentle towards a rabid dog… He thought, twitching his nose at hyperspeed at the thought. ...Best dance moves…? That'd be accurate… if it were, well, accurate! He thought, his face remaining blank.
However, as she released her waves of darkness; Colin only smiled. He pressed back on his heels, as suddenly the bursts of power that were conflicting gave him a great increase of speed, as his body began moving roughly forty percent faster than before; all thanks to the fact that now, the RA energy he was sending through his body had rapidly accelerated thanks to the energy Mana had pushed against his body. And Mana was not limited by the speed reducing crap. It was funny; Colin was now taking advantage of the massive amount of power Mana was letting off and using it to his credit.
Getting out of a two hundred meter attack instantly how he did by being pushed away by that much force had an obvious effect on the Eaglegod. Even though he had turned himself invisible; he was banking on her to attempt to exploit a mistake he seemed to have made. He felt his feathers vanish from the playing field, his features slightly darkening as he did so. She hadn't absorbed his feathers, yes; but she had gotten rid of them… or so she thought.
However, as he watched, the Garganta was not opening. His eyes widened immensely, as he took a deep, shuddering breath. He cursed, putting his hand on the hole he had made in Toki's barrier as his other hand fired off the Hadō One blast. This other hand created a single feather over the hole, as it generated a field over the hole, creating a similar property to Colin's feather armor.
As he reappeared by the light pole, he tested something. He created a miniature garganta within his own veins, that led straight back into his veins. To his utter shock and amazement… It worked. IT'S A SPACIAL COUNTER! He thought, realizing that it had only applied to the PLACE WHERE TOKI AND COLIN JUST HAD BEEN.
Due to this error, Colin's hope rose as his foot solidly connected with Kanda Yuu's body, thrusting it straight forwards firmly into the Garganta ,as Colin turned his head completely aside away from it, not able to waste time. As it was Closed, Colin's body shot up into the sky, his eyes wide as Mana came exactly where Kanda had been, a strange body coming out like a giant mouth and consuming everything that had been standing there. He didn't see what had happened; but he could only hope for the best... although he realized that if he hadn't been fast enough, Kanda was likely dead. However, Colin didn't want to face that fact; for now he had to be focused. Finally, ANOTHER cursed Mana rose out of the ground, coming after him.
As he saw Mana coming towards him, Colin's eyes narrowed, before they closed completely. There's one thing you have done… "YOU'VE MANAGED TO NOT KNOW ONE THING." He announced, as his body began to shake. It began shaking at an extremely fast rate, as Colin smiled as if he was a wild animal. Mana was still far in approaching by his standards; as his speed suddenly began to increase, the RA moving in his body suddenly increasing with renewed vigor. He began to breathe in, as he focused on the spirit inside of himself.
We may well die here..
NOT IF I HAVE A SAY IN THE MATTER! KYEEEEEEER!
The hollow within Colin said, as he smiled. That's right. He thought, as the smile got even wider. Suddenly, his mask being emitting an actual power on his face, as his right hand rached out, gripping onto Mana's hand as the feathers on his back suddenly split from their winged forms, as they assembled themselves around Mana faster than her Hyper acceleration, faster than she could even blink. The tiny hooks for the energy that now permeated around the two made it so that no teleportation could be enabled; hooking the two of them to the faact of this existence.
Doubtless, trying to interfere with this fact would be quite disastrous. As this fact was securely hooked onto Mana now, to remove it would to remove Mana's existence. However, it was not fully linked onto Colin. After all, the definition of the attack was that it harmed those Colin was opposing. It said nothing about harming Colin himself. He smiled, then; as suddenly his right arm reached out to hers, she seeming to move in slow motion as his maskbegan to glow, the orb around them made of feathers securely glowing as it pressed in on them.
His voice called out, his features sharp and rather intense as the sheer amount of power he gave off in his Resserection came out completely, as the purely destructive energy exploded out of him. Not even Mana would be able to siphon off this much sheer force; the force to consume over two hundred meters in pure radius with complete destruction. However, even as the power completely rebounded within the sphere, Colin smiled behind his mask, feeling his power all around him, as usual leaving him unharmed.
Unlike any other time before, he was in charge of his own waste burst. He had figured something out thank to Mana's act; he now had a circular shape… and the force of his release to rotate within that shape. The energy changed; as opposed to before it was now merely greatly harming everything.
"RESSERCION RA BOMB! I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE!"
He called out, as the massive explosion rolled back , covering Colin but exposing Mana, releasing her from the blast beforeColin's right hand pushed forwards, releasing the massive rolling blast as it went past him, slamming into the third Mana at an incredble rate as it suddenly began to expand. The rolling properties of the energy caused it to create enormous, pure force damage to her because of how concentrated the energy was .Then, the energy grew much bigger at a rapid pace; growing as big as the normal blast as it shot forwards, consuming entire buildings.
Her shot at her stomach was rather disregarded; coming nowhere close. He had blown away everything near him with his Massive RA Bomb. He blinked, smiling as he sensed energy around himself. However, they completely failed to do anything to his Anti-Gravity Field; after all, it was just consuming energy, an aura around Colin. As such, his body merely replaced the defective parts it felt and completely restored the field, Colin not even taking note of the change as his body did it automatically.
"You're not a spoiled child… You can't just have everything your way… No one can everything their way!" He spoke decisively, as she created a spear and threw it towards him. His eyes shone, as a cloak of feathers completely asserted itself around his torso, a hood appearing on the back of his head. His body had changed; his clothing had become one with his body, leaving him without texture, his body solid like a rock. He looked over at where Mana was as Elizabeth lost her life.
His eyes widened, then narrowed again in rage as he turned back around to face Mana's spear. The RA within his body was pumping so hard now that it felt like he would go insane; as he had taken the highest amount of Speed phyiscally possible for a living being. And yet, as the spear solidly impaled him, blood spurting from his mouth as a great cry emitted from his throat, his energy breaking down, it didn't look too amazing. It didn't look amazing at all, in fact, it looked horrifying.
And then, suddenly, Colin vanished. His form seemed to dissipate into nothingness; as if he had never been there to begin with. As the corporeal after image that Colin had made faded, the Eaglegod reappeared over the Mana that he had just performed an obliterating attack against. He held Windscar in one hand, as he brought the sword down in front of her.
As he brought the blade down, massive rends of earth in the already-crater he had created from the Massive RA bomb began appearing from where Colin was standing. Each one of these rifts had their nearest point directly in front of the Mana clone. This was only at the start of Colin's downward swing. The rends began growing into the hundreds, into the thousands, into the tens of thousands as evevn the energy around the slashes bega becoming displaced, the sheer amount of heat being produced nearly setting Windscar's blade ablaze as Colin struck at Mana in the hundreds of thousands of times as he brought his blade down, the rush of speed nearly setting his very durable body ablaze as the rends got deeper as he lowered his sword, the blades of wind given off of Windscar further destroying Mana's clone as he struck so many times. And yet, even with her eyes completely on him, most likely using her full power… She would still not be able to keep track of him. The very air around him alit with a hot blaze, blue fire sparking from all around him as he heated up the air particles around him so much that they could not escape due to his speed, forcing them to turn alight.
He then pointed a hand out at her, breathing out slowly. "It is True That You have Under Estimated Me." He said simply, as his wings broke down behind him, the feathers of his cloak shooting out and hooking the Mana Clone to this space once again. The entire process happened within the space of a degree, a 3600th of a second. He then stood stock still, Windscar in one hand and the green Featherkatana in the other, as his intensely sharp feathers disintegrated from his back from six of the wings of his bankai, the other two in the sword he wielded. Hundreds of chains of feathers then shot from Colin, seeming to move forwards slowly towards the entrapped Mana as they stabbed her hundreds of thousands of times, reaving through her very cellular and energy level, as massive explosions occurred within the field from the amount of atoms that were being split by the precise stabs of his feather tendrils, including from the feather blade he held in his left hand.
He then proceeded to smile; as the feathers were all glowing as they turned brown from the blood falling on them from the victim. The feathers were his Bankai, after all; the ones from his ress were all around Mana. The green and brown feathers were glowing because he was performing Konso on the Mana Clone; as all the power, souls, and consciousnesses she had began being purified hundreds of thousands of times over. This sacred act, approved of even by the Soul King, judged the souls within her as they returned to the soul cycle.
Colin left a quite bloody mess, as the blue feathers returned around his cloak, the burning field they had been giving off to trap Mana dissipating as they returned. He then rose up into the air, grabbing onto his familiar as it began flying past him. He sighed as he held the bird, thinking of the dead girl as his gaze hardened, turning to look about himself as he saw yet another being with wings arise.
The Eaglegod was dead silent as his eeys widened, his jaw dropping. Certainly not, his brain told his cybernetic eyes. Look again. We're looking, his eyes replied, it's really there. The massive wave of destruction appeared as Colin's lower lip slightly shuddered, as he saw the immense amount of destruction that it would end up wreak-
He suddenly shook his head, looking towards the east end of the city as a massive explosion rent the area, his eyes widening with a new hope as he watched an absolutely massive cero being fired by a single Arrancar, his cybernetic eyes closing in on Coyote Starrk as he was evacuated, twenty percent of the destruction nullified by the former Primera Espada.
Meanwhile, Colin looked back over to Truth, who had managed to block a large amount of the damge himself. However, even as he looked at Truth, Colin looked beyond. His gaze of uncertainty became replaced very quickly; as a look of outrage and fiery anger began to replace it. One hand reached out, putting its hand on one side of his mask as he rent half of his mask from his face, his right eye becoming visible once again, as a stream of tears became apparent from it. All this… Waste… All this destruction… All this.. All this… ALL THIS… ALL THIS….
His brain became stuck, even as his released power began to change. Suddenly, instead of the blue aura emanating around him, leaks of green began to spoil it; even as the green intertwined with the blue, as the entire aura began to compress, increasing in mass but focusing in on Colin's body. His body was lax in the air, as his familiar merely looked up at him, Hermes' eye blinking in the light as Colin began to change.
He looked out all about himself, as he realized that he could no longer feel Mana's retarded field effecting him. It was if it had simply melted off of him; his aura forcing it to slip and slide from his body. He also was unable to see it; but on the back of his head he had grown a wide wreath of feathers, which ran along his back and up behind him, creating nine tails of feathers. He had entered something the likes of which he had never known; he had reached the pinnacle of what it meant to be a Vizard… and then he had gone beyond, clear from the crystal blue gaze in his revealed eye and the black iris of the one still behind his mask.
However, as he saw abominations beginning to rise, he sighed. As he did so, he began to have the sensation of a great amount of freedom; one that sent chills down his spine to think about ,as Windscar rent through each and every one of the skeletons that she had summoned, his mind no longer to comprehend his own speed; not going the speed of light, but several hundred times above Sonic Speed. He didn't even seem to move as what looked like hundreds, then thousands, of Colins appeared as they struck down the monstrosities that arose, chopping them into pieces before releasing the power of Windscar upon them. He was going so fast that his afterimages were merely afterimages of former afterimages; and the skeletons wouldn't even begin to feel the attack made upon them until (in Colin's current view) long after he had made the strike.
However, Colin realized that the job was not done yet. He suddenly reached up a head, wincing as he placed it to his hand, his brain now being forced to catch up to this strange sensation of speed that he was getting. However, it felt like there was something more to this speed; like he was able to feel the speed of everything else around him. He truly did not know what he had gotten himself into, but as he grasped his head and threw it back to release an extreme cry of anguish from the mental strain of what he had just done, he knew that Mana would most likely have another present for him… He just had no idea if he was going to be able to take the mental strain of his own current state.
He realized something else, also. He could no longer sense his hollow. At all.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. - Buddha

Artist: Within Temptation - Song: A Demon's Fate - Word Count: 10126
Angel's, angel's, angel's! Angel's were appearing everywhere around Mana. Around her, near her, inside of her; these creatures just wouldn't leave her alone. It was honestly driving her mad with how many of them were just crawling out of the woodwork. Really, it was almost to the point where she was laughing with utter joy. For, with the death of Elizabeth, she had already sensed something immense coming on from the horizon. Yet, deep within her heart, she knew that the day the mother, or rather, in this case, the father of all angels would come to eventually fight her. So, despite her body feeling all sorts of distress from her constant back-to-back fights, the frequency in which she had pushed her powers nonstop, the rapid energy fluctuations occurring with her being and the deteriorating mental state that was The Queen of Demon's psyche; she knew that she was going to have to summon the willpower needed to overcome these obstacles which had stood ever-so boldly within her way to becoming...whole. From Truth, to Colin, to the Iramasha Runt, to all bodies piling up in this city and that damned girl...Haniel Iahhel...everything was closing in on Mana, but she would not bend to their whims.
Thus, as her previous actions were meshing against this new and powerful force that had emerged on the battlefield, she knew that her plans would definitely have to change from this point onward. From the sheer amount of raw force that her body was perceiving from this individual, a stern look had appeared across the Demon Queen's face for a few moments as she got a feel for this new...power. The lady wasn't quite sure how to react to this, but for the first time in ages, she had believed she had met a force...stronger then herself. Normally, one would become very concerned with a turn of results like this, but instead...? Heh, Mana could only meet this would laughter. It may be the madness buzzing throughout her being, it could be the damage done to her mental state or it might very well be the instabilities that were occurring within her bodies structure; but...there was no reason to fear anymore. All sorts of doubt, worry, fear or any sort of cautious were just blown to the wind at this point.
To her? In this place, in this time and from the actions she has caused, it was about time something had been summoned to give her a worthy challenge. Raising her hands in the air as she steadily picked herself up from the ground, Mana bellowed her laughter across every square inch of this city. The lady may have lost her right mind, but her instincts were as keen as a fox at this point. She had come to far, she had achieved too much, she had worked so hard and there was still so much to do in this world. The chains of fate were binding Mana, but she could fall to them. In the back of this creature's mind, there was a voice pushing her. There was a voice in the madness guiding her throughout this chaos, from the dangers that were all around her and showing her the light that would be waiting for her once these objectives were cleared. The road would be painful, the path could be lethal, the work would push her to the brink of utter annihilation; but nothing, NOT EVEN GOD HIMSELF, would stop what The Queen of Madness had set out to do today. Thoughts of violence surely surged throughout the maiden's head, and she knew very well, deep down inside, that there was a chance she'd die this day. Yet...the echoes of laughter still bellowed out of her mouth. She was the Queen of Demon's, she had a job to do and she had her sisters waiting for her. For them, for herself and to defy fate itself; Mana Asthavon...WOULD PUSH FORWARD.
Eyes radiating a brilliant blaze of white, something was surging in Mana the emergence of Truth. It was something she had not felt in a long time; something that made her feel...holy almost. Cackling a bit, she couldn't believe the turn of events as odd tribal markings were beginning to take seize across Mana's body. They covered her arms, face, chest, stomach, thighs, legs and feet. When finished, all of these markings began to radiate a strong golden glow as there was yet another shift within Mana. Knowing that a transition was taking place, she'd look up at Truth while he was speaking towards her with a sinister grin. As The Queen of Demon's knew, that whatever this creature was that stood before her, heh, it caused her body to react in an extraordinary way. Spitting green blood from her mouth, she'd rise to meet this new challenge as a sinister grin was seen across her lips. "You...you are special. Hehehehe, I can tell that just by feeling out this FABULOUS energy you've radiated across this here city." Licking her lips, Mana felt more alterations occurring in her body as a gold, black, white, green and red aura's had shifted all around her; causing her to snicker louder and louder. "And judging by how you speak, 'sugah, it's not hard to tell that ye' are of angelic origin; and most likely rule over them." Tilting her head to the side, Mana closed her eyes and let out another witch laugh as the memories were pouring into her head.
Visions of light, blessings, divinity, just and devotion seeped into the Queen of Darkness herself. Grabbing her chest, she knew just what was causing this bizarre chain reaction within the core of her body. 'Haniel...and Ramiel' Licking her lips, The Royal Asthavon knew where this battle was going to go now. It was going to be one of mind, body and soul at this point. Not even she was sure if everything would go according to plan, yet, something in her mind kept propelling her forward. Voices, many voices; all chanting and shouting at Mana to keep fighting, keep fighting AND KEEP FIGHTING. With a sudden rush of absurd energy, more then the output she was radiating earlier in her power mad rush, it was clear whatever was transpiring was healing the exhaustion she had felt earlier from the extreme use of her abilities. Strength was augmented, bones were made stronger, focus had been pin-point and stability was returning within the core of the beast as an unfamiliar laughter echoed across the battlefield, but not one that belonged to Mana. No, this one had power to it, but it soon became lost in a sea of laughter from millions upon millions of people as Mana stared upwards at all that was "The Truth".
"The Truth...." These chuckles persisting, Mana could feel chills running throughout her veins; as, for some reason, a foreign force inside her was greatly familiar with this creature. "...to have the Ruler of Angel's himself pay me a visit, well, I can't say I'm NOT flattered at this display you've put on at me."No longer caring about what had occurred with Madness City, she had obtained the goal she had sought out and all else that this..."almighty" being had done was deemed irrelevant since it failed to stop her true objective. Despite all of his deistic energy, she knew there was only a handful of creatures whom were capable of emitting such a feat of power. And, as if reacting to this scene change, a great blaze of white fire mixed together with hints of PURE gold had been set ablaze from the right eye of Mana as she just let it all soak in. The stage had been set, the players had assembled and it seemed all eyes were on her. "The center of everything, and the beginning of nothing. We diverge on this land not as Angel's or Demon's, but as players in this game of Life. But not just any players. No, no. 'Sugah, we are the Queen and King; finally meeting face to face for the first time. I'm....excited." While most would dismiss this as ramblings of a maddened person, Mana knew in her heart what this meant to her and her heart was going to guide her through this sea of...madness....no matter what.
...but...it wouldn't just be her heart. No, no, no. This would be a prized heart in her collection of lost souls. One of the first creatures she had consumed in her ascension to demonhood...Ramiel...The Angel of Awakening and one whose goal is to reunite all the eternal self. It had all the knowledge she needed of these divine creatures as she let out a series of wicked howls for all to hear. While this being knew not what Truth was truly capable of, it had knowledge enough of the Angel's series of racial techniques to at least give Mana a clear idea of what she might be facing against. Words such as "Purgatonis", "Purgatonis", "Intellectius "Lux Gradus", "Clara Clipeus" and "Vastator Mali" were whispered into the trails of Mana's mind; as the hidden depth's of this beloved familiar had foretold her all of the "true" Angel's attributes to watch out for. And boy, from the knowledge which was being processed inside of her mind, heh, it made Mana grimly chuckle at the thought of not having these angelic being on her own side. The writing was on the wall and Mana knew that this was going to be the time to act or die against someone of his caliber. Ergo, it was time to pull out some of her bigger guns before the showdown began.
(Change Tracks Here)
'Oh Mana, OH Mana.' A familiar voice ring within the wall's of The Demon Queen's conscious. With the sweet sounds of this cherished echo, it seemed as if time itself had stopped; the events of the outside world were frozen and she was allowed to freely converse with...her...god. 'It seems you've come across my Onii-Chan.' Giggling in a childish voice, it was clear that this ambiguous being was amused by the battle taking place. 'Please, my little munchkin of the darkness, don't go TOO overboard with this.' Snickering a bit, this supposed "God", in it's own right, couldn't seem more immature with it's frequent cheery voice, infantile mannerisms and carefree persona. 'Even you might face some problems with this one that might disrupt the balance of this planet's life cycle.' Taking a soft sigh to ease itself, a faint vision of black and red humanoid shape, roughly about the size of a small girl, emerged before The Queen of Darkness; but only visible to her in this strange state of consciousness.
'Miss Mana Mana, you of all of my wonderful creatures should know what might happen if two joyous powers smash together; such as yourself and my Onii-Chans. Hehehehe, you two have the utter capacity to now change this wonderful sphere of dirt inside and out. From it's ecosystem, to the air we breathe, to the land you stand on; all of it will be put at steak at the cost of you two going head to head.' Now floating around atop of The Queen's head, this strange collection of illuminous colors had morphed itself into the body of a young girl. Unkempt, long and grey colored hair freely blew throughout the breeze in the air as the first bits of herself were materialized. Proceeding that, a rather large hat , which was black in color and appeared to have a yellow bow attached it, would be found dropping from thin air and onto this blissful young female. Following these sets of events, the girl would open her eyes to reveal their bright gem green color and let out yet another giggle as she was still nude at this point. Though, that would soon be fixed. First, a pair of black boots with heart-shaped symbols in a yellow hue formed around her feet. Second, a lengthy green skirt was then conjured up around her hips. Lastly, a shirt that was yellow in color had emerged across her body; it's emerald green buttons tightening around her chest and enclosing her in the shirt as she was now whole; being free to straighten out her green and white collar.
"Well, aren't you just the cute little thing." Gravely chuckling at this new creature that stood before her, Mana knew that if Deveta had to give her a warning, this met the battle was truly some amazing to behold. "Tehehe, thank you." Giving The Queen a slight curtsey to the Queen of Demon's, this girl would then rise from her pose, tap her chin and come to a realization. "You can just call me Khala in this form!" Rising her hand in the air, "Khala" would let out a laugh, clap her hands and go on with her urgent business. "I'm here just to partake as a witness to dazzling battle!" Tone rapidly changing, it appeared that "Touketsu's" voice had altered once again. Now that this body was fully broken in, the Demon "God" had sounded further feminine then before and had more pep in it's step. "And knowing a great extent of my Onii-Chan's power, and yours; I'm not even sure where this little showdown might lead!" Waving her hands in the air, Khala turned her attention towards the bright light in the sky that was Truth. Smiling a bit, she'd collapse her hands under her chin and look back at Mana. "While you may enjoy destruction, even I know you do not wish the entire obliteration of this planet. And, while my brother may have a vendetta against my creatures of madness, there is a limit we...hehehe...Gods...have to using her powers."
While Khala was speaking towards The Queen of Demon's, this information was simultaneously being synced into her mind. Vague details of Truth, more in-depth details about the Angel's racial set and what was at stake if this went south."You or him can both die here, or this battle can be destroyed. I'm sure both of you will reach an impasse where enough will be enough, but who will be left in the wake of this power." Snapping her fingers, Mana would lift her upwards towards the sky as she would see a reflection. At this point, the entire continent of Antarctica had been engulfed between the energies of Mana Asthavon, Truth and Colin Washi as these immense powers were clashing at once. As a result? A dense dome of gold, black, red and white rays of light had engulfed this entire region; eventually hardening into a shield harder then the one present in Karakura Central. Preventing most from getting in, and only the likes of Mana, Colin, Truth and Khala herself were able to escape it. "Well, Touketsu, you know what happens when I have fun...!" Almost whining a bit, Mana let out a boastful laugh as she saw entire armies put at a stand-still as they were unable to phase through for the time being.
"Mmmhmm, mmhmmm! I know, I know!" Agreeing with dear Mana, Khala let out a similar laugh as she grinned and looked to the side; a bit uneasy at some of the effects occurring throughout this country. "You can savor this fight, but at some point, you may need to end this swiftly or come to a crossing. If someone of my caliber, Truth's or your own were to enter this battle royale....I'm not sure the stability of this planet could maintain itself anymore." Pointing at another imagery, Khala had a holographic imagery of Truth and himself being broadcasted throughout the globe to not interfere with this fight. If the likes of Zefonse, Shadin Yuudeshi, Daigoro Ito and many others like them were to join the fray; they'd only risk the stability of the planet as multiple forces of dense and raw power were clashing within this secured dome...for the time being, at least. "Hehehehehe, but you know I'm going to keep pushing right, my dear Touketsu-Kun!" With everything boiling down to this point, there was no way Mana could go back now...could she?
"I know, I know~!" Pouting a bit, she'd turn to Truth, stomp her feet then pout again. "So if it worse comes to worse, I'll allot you usage of my power to get this dispute over with. If I have to step in between you two, then the whole is gonna go...." Jumping in the air with a dynamic facial expression, Khala made explosion-like sound and said; "KABOOM!" With that said, Mana nodded her head with a witch laugh. "Alright, alright. I get the picture. Just back inside of my head and let's kick this goodie-two shoes ass, 'sugah!" Taking a deep sigh, Mana had phased back into reality as a strong, no, overwhelming gust roared throughout the area as the entire sky had turned different shades of red, gold, green, orange, black and white. Lightning collapsed down on the ground; taking out entire sections of Antracia that were roughly the size of small cities. Even the very fabric of reality was beginning to glitch; as strange ripples in time and space had been distorted across this section of the globe. If this escalated, and reached a tipping point, Mana could see the point in Khala's concern for this planet. Yet, the voice in the back of the head would not let this battle ago until the impasse was met or one of them was defeated; possibly even dead.
(Change Tracks Here)
However, before Truth on gone his little rampage, the state of time was still distorted between Mana and him. Despite feeling the full effects of their powers clashing, it was if the two had been separated between different rates of time. Truth, still in the mainstream time, could foresee most of this as real time. Yet, thanks to Touketsu's influence, Queen Mana still had time to bask herself in the glory of all this. The world going to Madness, the sky being distorted into all sorts of violent hues, the screaming intensity that wind hollered, the absurd amount of power being generated throughout this country and the whole world stopping just for the Queen. Smiling, it seems that all Truth had done had played right into Mana's game and all was going just was planned. The Madness was overwhelming, the chaos immeasurable and the balance purely unstable between these masses of power scattered throughout the charred remains of Madness City.
"But I Do And I Don't Want To Care Anymore...." Closing her eyes, imagery of the new aged world had been showcased throughout the entire section of Madness City. Pictures of war, battles of strife, endless streams of blood from those long deceased, the constant scenes of human's losing their sane psych and a never ending sea of examples of Chaos, Madness, War, Death and all that was Earth in the 25th century. It kept pushing Mana FURTHER, and FURTHER, and FURTHER into the depths of what Madness was. Yet, despite all of this, there holiness within her was getting STRONGER and STRONGER. It appeared, that in order to fight Truth, she had comprised a way to channel Ramiel and Haniel's Angelic aura's to mask her Demonic powers via these golden markings still radiating throughout her body. Though, in the end, it would be pointless. In order to adapt further to Truth's power, Mana's own body would simply produce a raw aura that was deictic like in nature nearly. If he was going to be the antithesis of Mana? Then she must comprise a way to evolve pass that and not become effected by it. If she could not morph pass this point? Then she'd need to reach a rate of power in which could equal or outmatch Truth. That's all there was going to be to this and that's all she needed to know to take comfort in her place in this battle. Just keep going, just keep going and just keep going until you can't breath anymore.
"If I Close My Eyes Would It Spare Me The Sight....?" Emerging before a tower that remained in the ruins of Madness City, another voice had echoed these words; but it did not sound anything like Mana. In fact, this was the voice of Haniel Iahhel being broadcasted throughout this entire continent. She looks towards the endless clouds of sky that lay before her; with a look that seemed of utter despair. Out of all of the other incarnations of Mana on the field, for some reason or another, this one had felt the most....human. There was a sense of genuine despair flowing through her eyes; and something, something deep inside of this one, that was fighting to break free. Certainly, there was more to this replica then all of the others. As, once the energies that were spiraling around inside of this duplicates core had reached a stabilization point, It seemed, that at this plateau, the clones had even seen their own jump in power. Boosting from their previous 0-2 level, they were now producing energy on par with a 0-2+; causing the entire state of being that was Antarctica to have it's snow become infused with a red, blood like snow; while the ripples in existence proceeded further and large vibrations throughout the land had sunken entire chunks of cities into the ocean. With another pulsation, the heart beat of Mana echoed throughout this entire chunk of never ending ice. It seemed, that when in sync with the sisterhood of clones around her, the force of Mana Asthavon was so intense; that it drowned this entire landmass in her force. Spreading for full five million, four hundred eighty thousand square mile radius that had comprised this island of cold and ice. "Of Decay, Corruption, How We Nurture Destruction...." Time clicking back into motion, Mana would be directly into the hells of combat with The King of Angel's, but something was different. Her force....it was closing the gap of power between her and Truth ever so swiftly.
"The heir-bringer of my demise? Heh, well, there is no denying you probably have me beat in the department of divinity. But, you of all creatures should know that while there is always a balance in this world, there is a disbalance looming around corner." Then, at the moment, Mana would use her nearly enlightened state to have sense enough to know that was a ruse when the hammer had crushed down before her. In fact, in that instance, it seemed as if time itself had stopped within the perception of the Demon Queen. With a imagery of what awaited if she was foolish enough to stay in place, images of her being chained and damaged by some sot of weapon from Truth had played out before her. When this vision had ended, Mana phased back into real time with a maniacal laugh, as from the looks of it, she had used a form of shape-shifting, when mixed together with the holy aura radiating from her body thanks to Haniel and Ramiel, in order to phase past the attacks, bend into a patch of blinding white light in the sky and evade taking damage as she stared down at Truth with a wicked grin. The beast...she was adapting to even fighting a God. Though, in truth, she had her Reaper's Eyes to thank for her increased death sense. As, at the moment, it allowed for her to be made aware of such an unfavorable outcomes on the battlefield. Truly, The Reaper's eyes were hard at work making The Queen of Demon's all too alerted of the dangers out of death or injury that loomed around the corners of this battlefield. Really, it was in circumstances such as this that being a reaper had it's pay-offs. Otherwise, without this, something else might have been needed in order to escape, counter or fight against those pesky weapons dear Truth was using against her; especially when taken into new heights in this extremely augmented state she was in, this was going to be an important factor in staying one step ahead of the curb in this fight. Yet, there wasn't a single ounce of time that would be spared in between continuation of her clash against the likes of Truth, the very INSTANT she had emerged in the sky; she had used this same shapeshifting technique to have a wave of raw energy seize throughout the land below them in order to hopefully level the attacks; being that she was, at this point and time, a 0-1- nearly. She doubt this would spell the end of Truth, but it should destroy whatever weapons that were intended to make an impact on her. In a matter of nanoseconds, the devastating wave of energy had reached a point of equaling to enough impact force to equal one thousand megaton blast within this condensed area where Truth had started his battle against her. It was time to test the waters of this almighty being, and damn was it going to be fun.
In the meantime, she'd focus further on her connection to Za Koa to essentially make her own body's functions become even more fine-tuned. Tapping into the The Army of the Damned, Mana reached deeper and deeper into their potential as she had tens of millions of her familiars begin to channel their bodily attributes to Mana. In other words, Mana was not receiving a massive energy boost from her creatures, but rather, when used alongside Za Koa, was amplifying her senses in order to safe guard herself against most types of sudden movements against Truth. Being applied to her perception, spiritual awareness, hearing, thought processing, reaction time and all other senses related to her physical and metaphysical attributes; she was hellbent on closing the gap between her and Truth. After all, in a battle against someone who had equaled her loving God, Deveta, there was n o time to waste in securing what she needed in order to turn the tables, or at the very least, keep up with him. And, as the knowledge from Touketsu had poured further into the mind of Mana, she had become weary of treading into these new powers. The reason being? There was always some damned catch to fighting eternal beasts like this. There was the potential he was holding back, there was the chance he couldn't be killed, there was a probability of him not even existent; there were numerous things in which could be hidden within the depths of her opponent, but in due time, it only served to make that ever growing voice in the back of Mana's push her further and further. As if nothing could touch him from her current output? Then even if her soul must be sacrifices, she'll figure out a way to become her own Demon Goddess and fight him on Equal terms by becoming her own celestial force.
So, in spite of how far The Queen had propelled her body, she had let out continued series of blissful laughs, as in all of this madness, she still wasn't entirely sure how to eradicate a being such as Truth, but she needed to keep trying anyway. Therefore, it was time to turn up the heat a bit as she had set her sights on the battle at hand with a devilish grin across her face. Musing over the vague details of Truth that were implanted inside of her mind by the likes of Deveta, Mana had a light understanding that this divine freak is supposedly wielding knowledge as some sort of weapon. From her own understanding of sorcery, abilities and combat experience; she had devised that he had obtained some sort of wicked union with all that there is across existence. After all, with the creatures Mana has come across, and the emergence of Davana, it wasn't entirely out of the realm of possibility for a being to represent the embodiment of knowledge. So, if this were the case, there had to be some sort of mechanic that had allowed him to convert this comprehension of the world into the material realm; most likely leading to some sort of creation ability. And if that were the case, this was going to be one hell of a battle. Yet, there was still a chance for her to overcome this. For wherever there was a will, this damned abomination of demonic mass would find a way to make it a reality.
In a matter of nanoseconds, something had been infused deep within the depths of Mana's body. This was not a living creature, but it was familiar none the less. It had aided her throughout many battles in Demon World, countless wars she had waged throughout the living realm and even assisted in the take over of London. Yes, this THING was the legendary scythe, Dead Master. Utilizing an accelerated summoning spell, Mana had transported this sacred weapon into the pits of her body to fight alongside The Queen of Demon's once more. It's attributes were going to be greatly needed on a grand day such as this. All sights locked on Truth, the near endless amounts of power that had radiated from every fiber of Dead Master had became Mana's to control and she was going to utilize it to make some kind of dent in this bastard. Hence, at this point, the gloves were going to come off. With all of this depraved energy at he disposal, a unique spell had been put into place for the duration of this thread. Harmonizing herself with Dead Master's nearly limitless supplies of fuel, she'd forge a sorcery, upon her body's own physical structure, to accelerate the rate in which she had adapted to Truth. As this battle would process, Mana's body would now be shifted into a state to constantly accommodate itself to whatever this profound force had dished out against her. There was no clue as to what the potential of this shift could do, but she didn't have time to over think it much. For now? It was in a dormant state based on his own inaction. So, to get a reaction, it was time for Mana to make some action. Slamming her palms together, seemly looking she was going into a deep state of meditation or prayer, The Queen felt it was time to test the tip of her power at long last. Transpiring in a matter of milliseconds, Mana had constructed thousands, if not, hundreds of thousands of blades that had comprised...of a void. The seals flickering in color, Mana had determined that in order to fight a God, one must fight like a God. By this logic, she had began to tap into the consciousness that was The Demon "God" and began to use his own force entwined with the clairvoyant nature of his mind's phrenic state to summon a poweress from the borders of his being in order to prevent Truth from performing anymore encryption to lock Mana out from her attributes any longer. In other words, if Truth were to attempt the same introduction attack he did in halting Mana's attack's at the start of his debut, he'd soon find that a familiar presence from his "Onii-Chan" would be attempting to block and negate both of their attempts; as their powers would be clashing on a convoluted and entangled level; hopefully allowing for Mana's control and effects to only be subjected to either being destroyed, evading it or otherwise countering it with an equal force; but the probability of her losing control again should go down drastically because of this infusion of Touketsu's mental capacities beginning to awaken within Mana; in addition to the functions of Za Koa and her Army of the Damned.
In any case, as these blades had eclipsed even the sky, they began to emit a rather violent hum from them. This was the process of Mana's Void Element, otherwise known as Expiry Void to her, being put into effect. In order to fight creation? One must have the capacity to destroy. While Truth may have been a God of knowledge and formation, The Queen foresaw herself as a Goddess of Destruction and deconstruction. If these forces were to clash against other, there was no doubt in her mind the damn was going to break and she'd smash through his defenses. Even with all of his mind's intellect, it would hopefully amount to nothing against the power of the void. So, with that said, this empire of swords would be entirely engulfed within the construct of the end. In short, if enough of these blades were to make an impact, even someone such as Truth would begin to see his own existence become damaged. They each held the potential to eradicate physical constructs, vaporize spiritual beings, erase metaphysical concepts and even almighty beings, such as Demi-Gods similar to Kin or Iori and creatures near the grasp of Godhood such as Touketsu/Truth. It was a tense power, but in Mana's mind, when else would she get a chance to test this ability? Against a foe like this, it was time to go big or go home. So, with that said, an ungodly attack was unleashed upon the wielder of The Truth; releasing her sea of blades at a rate of speed equal to microseconds and hopefully giving him little time to breathe. One after another, these weapons of destruction and decimation flooded the remains of Madness City in a systematic process. There would be no room to think, there would be no time to speak and there would be maximized damage throughout the lands. The impact force alone from these blades were enough to begin the course of eradicating the remains of Madness City; as chunks of buildings went flying in the air like mere rag dolls, holes of utter darkness ripped opened across the city as all returned to the void, further causalities were made from the remaining survivors of Madness City and the effects of the blades had even began to rapture reishi themselves; causing further instability to Madness City, and further augmenting Mana as another rush of energy pulsated within her body; letting out a wicked howl of laughter throughout the ashes of this fair metropolis, or what was left of it, at least.
In spite of the immense defiance of Mana crippling the city, this attack was far from over. As each of these blades hopefully entangled Truth in every direction imaginable, more blades comprised of the same attributes as the ones The Queen has unleashed upon the township from the numerous amounts of explosions, generating from the kinetic forces which engulfed these blades and essentially almost every sword would multiply itself to the point of creating a cycle of destruction, eradication and consuming Truth into the void. Above all, going back to Mana's earlier precautions, this should not be something that could be easily altered or manipulated against; even with someone of Truth's caliber at this point. She wasn't quite sure what his full potential was, but at least the trickery which was displayed earlier should be put to an end for the time being. Anticipating that he may use a variation of flash step, teleporation, Stasis Attributes and other means of escape; Mana entered the operations needed to start having this cluster of swords from the void appear in dimensions both, higher and lower, in the surrounding battle vicinity; she'd place them in the air, and an untold amount underground; they'd be place in areas where he'd most likely step and they'd even focus in on the vast amounts of force which Truth's presence commanded. They did not radiate anything related to Death or Demonic Forces, so this further the chances of this wide-scale attack against the shield he placed previously around himself; resulting in her possibly having some sort of impact or forcing Truth to push himself in the wake of Mana's assault.
In the interim, The Queen's own void nature steadily began to comprise a shield across her body. Being that she is the antithesis to Truth, Mana thought it would be fitting that she herself forged a barrier in and throughout her body that utilized the power of the devoid in order to increase her resistance against Truth's influence against her. It was going to be a pricey gamble utilizing Expiry Void in this manner, but nothing ventured, NOTHING GAINED! With the controls of her former appendages hopefully coming back to her from that debacle Truth did to Mana formerly, she'd use Touketsu's own encryption, when used alongside the Army of the Damn, Za Koa and Mana's own processes; to regain control back over them and clear this frozen state in which that damned angel had placed them in. Luckily for Truth, he wouldn't have to worry about them being used against them. Instead? Mana merely wanted to take back THAT which was HERS to control and HERS alone. So, in this act of boldness, she'd hopefully have all of the black liquids that were disbursed all throughout Madness City steadily begin to return to her with the substance in which they were able to consume before Truth had intervened. All in all, this whole process should have only taken a few nanoseconds at the rate of speed in which this battle was taking place now. It had been a minor inconvenience at best for Mana, but it was enough to show where her power was steadily rising to as this battle had started to intensify and she wasn't going to sit by and let Truth have all the fun.
"I can feel everything entangling me, I know all is becoming me and I know that my hunger won't be satisfied until it's all MINE!" Letting out a ghastly roar, Mana had even began to spread Expiry Void's influence in order to channel the reishi it had steadily been decaying towards her entire being; filtering out any outside forces that may have been attached them, and ultimately causing the clones throughout the city to react in a similar manner. Bellowing roars had shattered all throughout the ruins of Madness City, as four balls of orange light had shot upwards into the sky and continued the pattern of great disharmony in the air. It seemed that the spotlight was finally beginning to swift towards the sisterhood of clones which had been displaced all throughout the city. From their harmonized energy reaching a connected sequence in which their force had resonated in sync with one another, generating a devastating sonic boom that had decimated a radius that was roughly the size of two cities; as the clones had all simultaneously received a boost in power that would put them on par with a 0-2+, making it equivalent to four full fledged and hardened org leaders emerging on the battlefield; especially with them being detached from Mana's own being at this point. Though, at the same time, they were still considered one based on a hidden telepathic link which connected the clones to Mana's own powers in order to augment them as if they were allies. Nevertheless, This disorder had been so impacting on the surrounding area, the remaining four to five Mana clones that had been displaced across the field had each generated enough outputting energy to have four golden wings soar from the center of storm, which Madness City had been the center of, and sprout outwards into the stratosphere of Earth. It was a sign of just how much absurdness and energy had been spiraling around inside the depths of Mana, as each of her own connections to Za Koa had further augmented the might of her clones to new plateaus and they were ready to wage absolute hell.
"Chaos May Be Thy Name, You Left Us For Anything....Trust Never Been So Misplaced ]As In Your Arms That Day...." With all of the clones proceeding on with the speech which had began during the original Mana's clash against Truth, it seemed as if an overbearing flash of white flames had erupted from their right eyes; radiating a gold and green hue from the edges of these blazes. Thus, this would be the point where the action would be zooming back to the version of Mana that had been waging combat against the likes of Colin Washi. It was time for her to cement the fact that she wasn't going to lose this battle into Co-Leader of The Vizard Corp's skull. Already detecting that something was off by sharing the same ungodly perception, thought process and sense of the world; this version of Mana had seen flashes of a horrid outcome playing throughout her head. With her impression of time suddenly coming to a stop, a scenario had played out before The Queen. In it? There had been a chance for a nasty combo if she had allowed herself to be caught in the path of what appeared to be some sort of technique called "RA Bomb". It would start with a chain reaction beginning with the veteran Vizard going out to reach the Queen's hands. Following that point? There appeared to be some sort of mechanic in a hidden ability he was withholding that had prevented Mana from teleporting in this precognition she had been experiencing. Fro there, an overwhelming amount speed generated from her opponent went on to unleash a hellish series of attacks upon the incarnation of Mana in this possible outcome she had lived through. Slash after slash, explosion after explosion, hit after hit and the final konso sealing the nail in the coffin had made Mana feel like she had actually died for a moment, but this clone knew it was simply a intuition of what might come if she did not make a swift decision during her flight towards Colin Washi.
'Log Em' Za Koa' These words were automatically spoken into the clone's mind, via the original Mana, as this Mediumship had taken place within her mind. In a state of time three times faster then a picosecond, this Demon Spell had went into effect; as the Mana clone whom Colin had meant to outreach had been swapped in place with a random piece of large mass of wood, located two thousand meters away, and shaped it to look like Mana; mixing in with the energy ratings going off in the area to make it appear as if he had killed this Mana Clone. Meanwhile, she would have successfully evaded the effects of Colin's devastating series of attacks as her clone would be slain without mercy by the raw might of the Vizard Corps Co-Leader. It was at this moment, inside of The Queen's mind, where she'd howl with laughter like no other. Really, it was the simple things in the Demon's arsenal which could screw over all those who oppose. Honestly, the bases of this spell were rather simple. It essentially makes use of the caster's energy, disburse it out over a fifty to three hundred meter area on average, but thanks to Mana's Grand Mastery in Demon Magic, it was able to spread for a two thousand meter radius; then, from there, it would scan the range for any sort of object cover it's influence in. If an adjustable object is found? Then it will swap places with the users, temporarily transform the object in question to appear like the caster of this spell and allow them to evade an attack by "logging" the intended target to hit a dummy.
And, before Colin could become none the wiser, this Mana clone would use a masters control of shapeshifting in order to mend her body on a subatomic level, disburse her particles into the air and swiftly transport herself miles upwards into the air by accelerating her particles to the point of moving at a rate of speed even Colin would have a hard time detecting; as her momentum was nearly instantaneous and on-par with teleporation. Though, at the moment, he'd have more frustrations to deal with then her relocation on the battlefield. In the meantime, while Colin was busy having a field day with the monsters on the field, Mana would smirk as two horns had extended from the back of The Queen's head. Ripping them out with her own hands, she'd engulf in the force that was her void nature and, with a snap of her fingers, would time this at the moment where The Eaglegod had suffered an immense strain of pain from his welp. Using a Demon Spell to teleport objects, she'd have one of these horns hopefully pierce him in his chest; then, with the second horn, take a jab at him in the same place, but in his back. Conjuring up two more horns, she'd repeat the process, but jab him in his knees. Then, she'd do it once more and send two more towards his arms until a total of six horns could possibly phase through Colin's defenses. Even if RA's feathers were to get in the way, at this point, the effects of Mana's Expiry Void could possibly phase through it's effects. As, once again, the abilities that stem from this move hold the potential to to completely erase physical objects, spiritual beings, metaphysical concepts; all of which fall under the effects of Expiry Void when it comes to Colin's abilities. And, the raw strength from the horn's, which is on par with Kenpachi Zarkai, would further increase he likelihood of making some sort of impact in addition to the near instant warping she had performed on these objects to have a very likely outcome of these attacks going through. Even going as far to merge the effects of these two abilities in order to have a probable event of her shattering most types of counters or defenses Colin may come up with.
Now, no longer seeming arrogant, cocky, or whimsical; there was a sense of control, yet psychotic nature hidden within Mana's look. At this point, she felt something had to give in Colin. In line with this train of thought, regardless of if he took a hit from the horns or not, The Queen of Demon's went on to formulate a barrier meant to imprison Colin inside. With his distressed state, the overwhelming energy being generated from Mana and Za Koa and The Queen even pulling attributes from the spiked horns in order to have Kenpachi level's of defense protecting the barrier, this was going to be something rather difficult for Colin to destroy. And, even if it were disbursed, Mana would swiftly go on to have the particles that comprised this spell spread throughout the area and proceed onward with the spell. Since he appeared to be in a peak of power, Mana was going to make sure he uses all this wonderful juice up. Thus, the primary effects of this sorcery was meant to exhaust his body to the point of just sustaining his Bankai + Hollowfied Powers drain him of energy. Essentially, in more basic words, the area within this entrapment and spell were meant to accelerate the amount of energy for Colin to even deliver a simple punch. So, if he were to use his racial traits, such as Shunpo, that movement would drain Colin of his energy reserves + stamina ten times more then normal; eventually, if he compiles on moves like he did against the wooden clone of the wicked Demoness, this could lead to a swift downfall.
However, there wouldn't be room for a breather. Not even at Colin's speed, Mana would direct a series of her swords, the same ones she had attacked Truth earlier in her assaults, and had them phase through the prison she had devised for Colin. Hundreds, if not, tens of thousands of these blades had disbursed on Colin at speeds on par with his own level of speed nearly. They would appear above him, around him, below him, to the side of him and would attempt to cover every possible angle in which Colin could conceivable move, breath or react to. And, with their effects being mixed in with Expiry Void, it's very possible that the end result of all these attacks could spell a knock out for Colin Washi. The spikes would cause critical damage from their blunt nature, there holds the potential for his powers being disrupted once more by taking spiritual damage and expiry void can surely eradicate most of everything else that comes in it's path when mixed together with the demon spell entrapping Colin within this confined space and it's draining effects on his body.
"I know this battle isn't over yet, but you should know when to call it quits. I'll admit, you put up a better fight then most other pests I've come across on this wasteland of a planet, but it's time to face the final curtain call and end this little cirade once and for all. The planet weeps in agony at the meshing of our powers, and calls for you to surrender. So stay down, be silent and I will end this swiftly." Snapping her fingers, she'd then go on to break her body down on a subatomic level; nearly instantly fading away from wherever she was at this point and time. Following that, one monstrous sized wings that had disbursed itself into the stratosphere would begin to radiate a red color. Something, something big was on its way to ensure the progression of this battle ends in Mana's favor. Within a matter of seconds, the 1st wing of the extended appendages would collapse downward on Madness City, but would shrink in size in order to compact itself to Colin Washi's level. Once this thing made an impact with whatever it hit? It would release a devastating explosion that would effect physical and metaphysical creatures alike; as the force generated from this blast would be roughly 10,000 megatons; and to put things in reference, the Tsar Bomba was recorded to be one of the strongest explosions to occur throughout human history, coming in at roughly hundred megatons; spreading throughout a radius of 99 miles of utter destruction. So, with that said, Mana would condense this devastating destruction throughout a similar radius, taking out the same radius span, but focusing the destruction on all of those who had been in the vicinity of Madness City; making sure to set the needed frequency's in this destructive blast to make it ineffective against the likes of Mana and her clones. (IMAGE FOR REFERENCE TO THIS SCENE)
Taking a soft sigh, the only thing left would be to deal with the last runt, Toki Iramasha. Hoping that Colin finally meets his defeat in the hands of this attack, she'd then set her sights on the weakest link of this team. Therefore, a second Mana clone would be dispatched towards his location; wherever he may be at this point in the blast or while he was in flight. Moving at speeds faster then Chaos Warp, this incarnation of the Demon Queen stood directly before Toki; hopefully stopping him with her bare hands alone. Proceeding that, she'd release an energy wave from upon her body in order to generate a condensed field within a three mile radius in order to prevent Toki from Chaos Warping out of her grasp again. "You know, I'm surprised a grunt like you was able to last this long." She said, having a twisted grin emerge across her lips as she would hopefully see him being tormented to an extent where he'd surely be put on the brink of death by the ten gigaton explosion occurring all around them."But these tricks, attempts at running away and hiding behind your friends can only sustain your life for this long. As you fade into the abyss, I'll be happy to guide you along the path to oblivion. Your loving heirbringer of demise~" With that said, she'd then go on to summon thousands of swords, the same of which had been used against Colin/Truth, in order to pierce through every single square inch of The Royal Iramasha Guard's body; effectively putting an end to any further resistance, even in the event that this blast had not gone off.
"Really, you all are pretty durable. For the binds of fate to take us to this point, it's truly something to take in."A third Mana clone, now speaking at this point, had emerged in the Stratosphere as she had a wicked grin down at the world below her. "But it's all futile, futile efforts. I've already set out what I had desired in this day and will depart from this endeavor with the riches I had so desperately sought out." Chuckling grimly, ten long spires of trailing light, resembling a shooting star, had descended towards the country of America at break neck speed; eventually fading into the night of space as they reached their destination. However, after that point, she'd let out pools of red blood from her mouth as she cackled like a mad woman. All of her organs, all of her bones, her entire metaphysical structure had been extremely stressed by constantly pushing herself this hard; but it seems this clone had taken on all the damage instead. It would seem so bizarre that Mana didn't even seem the slightest bit phased by delivering a constant barrage of insane feats, abilities, powers and destruction back to back without even the smallest sign of drawback. Though, this wasn't entirely the case. As this 3rd clone contained itself inside a sphere wedged in between the three remaining wings in the Earth's stratosphere, far above the destruction in Antarctica, she had been busy taking most of the strain off of Mana's body as her entire body began to bleed out.
Mounds, and mounds and mounds of blood had seeped out of her body until the entire sphere had been drowned inside of it. In spite of this, it had felt all too at home for this 3rd Mana clone as she had drowned in the pain that was The Queen of Demon's. It was here, atop this peak, where the disturbances which was felt in Mana's previous assault had been faced. The echo's of Chaos, the roars of madness, the distress within and the pure instability of Mana's core could be felt surging violently within this core. It had reached a peak point of even making the very Earth react below her. As, from the ashes of Madness City, four black crosses had extended upwards into the heavens with the three remaining wings which had towered over the continent of Antarctica. Once put in place, an omonimous red light glowed ever-so softly throughout the edges of these erected crosses. What was taking place was an encryption so strong that even Truth, with his book of Knowledge, would have an extremely hard time breaking pass it. Why? Because this clone of Mana had taken the power which had laid in Touketsu's conscious and constructed a special shell through his power in order to prevent outsiders from breaking into this sphere. The reasons for this is because, that if this replica of Mana had been disturbed from her slumber, there lands a high risk of a one hundred gigaton explosion occurring above the surface of Earth; filling the skies with Madness, Chaos and all that is Mana and Death's own energy. As a result from this violent reaction, the same darkness which engulfed these strange towers, had in turn, devoured this strange ball of destruction high above the skies of Earth.
"So, I wonder what the decision is going to be at this point...." A white light had taken shape above the circular object in the vast nothingness of space, until a familiar girl was seen hovering before it. "...but, I guess that's the price of birthing children into this world, huh?" Giggling a back, it appeared that Khala had returned once more; taking a seat upon this dense collection of power. With a cross of her legs, a fold of her hands and a smile across her face; Khala had watched the Earth spin ever so brilliantly; even in this time of despair. "Well, I suppose Onii-Chan will be here soon. You've managed to create quite the mess, Mana-Mana, but this battle is going to have to end at some point...." Sighing sadly, she looked below the sphere of lunacy that was planted before her and knew things were getting far too out of hand for what Mana had set out to do in this city. And, on the inside, there was yet another battle taking place within the internal world that as The Queen of Demon's. A voice, a one of innocence, was crying out to the world as she had tried her best to awaken; but this wicked forced would have none of that. Haniel, Haniel was once again trying to stop this, and even in her terrified slumber, Mana would not show her mercy. Many mental restraints were being placed on the 'gal, the torment that Mana's Inner Soul had endured was directed solely on her and the balance of Mana's self had hung in the balance at this point. "Why can't you just let me be free, huh? You brought me into this world, you'll suffer the consequences..." Voices, many voices echoed this throughout the halls of Mana's mind; but cries of protest loudly SHOUTED back, only to be met with more violent snarls, hollers and the sound of slashes.
"This is the kingdom of Mana, and this world will soon be my utopia one way or another. No creature will defy me, for I am absolute. To kill me, is to kill Chaos itself. I won't let a mere girl stop ME, I won't let a DAMN god impose me; I can't lose....I'm not MEANT to lose...." And with those bold words released throughout Mana's mind, body and soul; it was clear that this was going to be one complicated matter to deal with. Now, with this battle being escalated, not only was the continent of Antarctica at risk; but if this wasn't dealt with soon by either side, the state of the entire planet would be put in jeopardy. Heh, but in Mana's mind? These were just the stakes in dealing with the Queen of Demon's. She would not be put down without a fight, she would not bow down to anyone but herself and she'd carry the likes of Demon World and the Asthavon family so valiantly upon her shoulders throughout this trying storm. Yet, even with all of this on the cliffs, there was something deeper taking place within her subconscious that even Mana herself wasn't aware of. A force that was trying to drive her, an entity that wanted to be whole and something that was trying to push her to being whole once again. If allowed to reach this point, something horrid would return to this plane of existence.
"....for I am the Goddess Eris and I will return once more to this world...."
Unknown to Mana, even at this point, her body was plotting against her. Ever since the day she had spawned into the mind of Haniel Iahhel, this creature's plan had been put into motion on a subconscious level. Prior to becoming the monster that everyone knows as Mana today, she was once another force entirely. Origins tying back to the creation of Chaos, Mana, or rather, Eris, The Goddess of Discordia , was once a Danava whom had became the embodiment of Madness, Instability and all that was strife. Not many know of her history, for most could not even begin to comprehend her true existence. And, even to this being, where she came had not mattered much. For, this deictic creature had been many names, many faces, many legends, many stories and lead so many lives in her time throughout this universe. How she got here, it was irrelevant. What matters? Heh, she was going to do whatever it took in order to become her original self once again. No matter what torn was placed in her plans, no matter who got in her way; Eris was going to give birth to Chaos once more and become complete once again....and this meant an uncertain course had been plotted for Mana's future from this point onward; as the entire globe paid witness to her meltdown.
