The bell rings, cuing the beginning of the battle.
Erion: He launches off into the air and positions himself on top of a floating island, relatively close to the ground but positioned far away enough from their starting positions for him to be concealed from Jack's view.
Jake: watches Erion fly off and when he moves out of view, me sends a wave a terror in the direction he lost saw him.
Erion: The wave of terror misses, as Erion has positioned himself off to the left once on the island. Erion creates three arrows made of air and fires them, aiming at Jack.
Jack: He sees the arrows at the last second and starts to rolls to the side, one misses but the other two hit his chest and thigh and his breath is knocked out of him. After he stops the roll, he sends a much larger wave of terror follow the trajectory of the arrows.
Erion: He is struck by the wave, causing him to, by instinct, blow a gust of wind in Jack's direction, then fleeing towards an island higher up in the air.
Jack: He is blown back a foot or two and sees one of the giant metal bird, he looks back at Erion to see if he has a chance to make it. He decides to send another wave of terror at him and conjures a shadow creature and sends it after Erion, taking on the appearance of his worst fear. Jack takes a few deep breaths and start running to the automaton bird.
Erion: Erion, instead of cowering in fear, reacts in retaliation, slashing and then taunting the visions to follow him to an island higher above the ground, which he flies to.
Jack: The creature continues to follow Erion, slowly down slightly. Jack continues running for the bird until he gets to the base of it and he starts to looks any kind of symbol. It is not until he climb onto the back of the automaton where he find the Greek letter Eta and places his hand on it and the bird comes to life. Jack holds tightly with his legs and arms as the bird takes off and it fly around aimlessly has he tries to figure out how to control it.
Erion: He slashes at the visions, keeping an eye on Jack. As the birds flies aimlessly, he surrounds it in a sphere of wild winds, attempting to trap it in place. He then flies out to a relatively far island near Jack and the bird, taunting the vision to follow.
Jack: He starts to control it similar to a pegasus and it responsive to him. He notices that the winds are blows in all directions around him. He looks and sees Erion still taunting his creature. The creature follows him growling and roaring, but stops a few yards away as just stares at him. Jack sends a wave of terror, hoping to catch Erion off guard as his shadow creature disappears slowly. He turns his attention back to getting the bird to fly out.
Erion: He , as before, reacts in retaliation, attempting to create a "blindfold" of rapidly moving winds around Jack's eyes, in an attempt to block his vision.
Jack: He shuts his eye and the winds whips at them, and has the automaton go into a dive to escape the winds. He levels out and blinks a few time as he lets his eyes recover and start the bird off after Erion.
Erion: He escapes, flying to an island high above. From there he tries to make the winds overbalance the bird into plummeting, positioning himself for flight with his sword.
Jack: The wind cause the bird to roll to one side, nearly throwing him. He holds tightly with is legs and arms before he levels out, turns around and starts a shallow dive at Erion, rolling at the last second and swiping he's swords and him as he attempts to zoom over him.
Erion: He creates more air arrows and fires them in Jack's direction, meanwhile creating a dome of wind in order to protect himself.
Jack: All the three arrows hit him and he torso swings back. he strains as pulls his torso forward and he strike, his blades deflecting off the wind. He has the bird turn and stop, then swipe a wing at him.
Erion: Erion enstrengthens the dome, protecting himself, being knocked back when the wing hits the dome. He quickly gets up and restabilizes, trying to bring the bird down again.
Jack: He feels the bird get pushed down, so he has is land on the island with Erion. He jumps and and immediately rushes Erion and conjures the shadow creature again. It charges at Erion as well, taking the form of his worst fear.
Erion: He traps the visions within a sphere of rapidly moving winds and then charges at Jack, sword raised as he slows down the moves of Jack significantly and speeds up his own, slashing at his chest.
Jack: The shadow creature disperses from the wind, but manifests out if the sphere, still charging at him. He lifts one sword to block and tries to slash down at him. His slowed and inability to move effectively sends him in to a Battle-lust, unleashing his full potential. Fighting with all his strength against the wind hindering his movements, slashing furiously at Erion.
Del wins and moves on to round 2
