|Vicki Latourette ~ Child of Cybele|
“The Earth laughs in flowers.”
|Owned by: Oli ~ Posted on: She walks into the arena wearing a light celestial bronze chest plate, with a long sleeved t-shirt underneath. She's wearing some denim shorts with leggings underneath. Her bow and arrow are in her mist form: her bracelet. She's wearing some lightweight trainers for easy movements. Other than her chest plate, no other armour can be traced.|
Vicki: She smiles as if to say 'good luck' before transforming a few of the nearby bushes into a sword, and begins to swiftly run towards Bre. Due to having done sprinting and such for many years, Vicki runs at a slow pace with the opportunity to side step to either side if necessary.
Breanna: She smiles back at her, and smirks a bit, seeing Vicki run toward her. She holds out her spear, not bothering to move away, sensing no need to waste access energy by running away, as she is not a coward either. She goes to parry the oncoming attack that Vicki holds for her, a plan formulating in her mind
Vicki: She keeps at a run when charging towards Breanna, and, at the last moment, sidesteps to the left, hoping to confuse her, or at least delay her response. She then goes to attack Breanna from behind.
Breanna: She is momentarily delayed, slightly confused at her lack of opponent. Breanna attempts to strain her ears to listen for her opponent, and, hears the slight scuffle of feet behind her. Once she assumes Vicki is close enough by her hearing, she attempts to duck down, going to lay her spear down between her feet, almost standing on it, but, not enough to break it. She, once down, goes to cover her head, as to not let Vicki get the upper hand and let her strike.
Vicki: She, seeing Bre duck down, uses this as an advantage to swing the hilt of her sword into Bre's arm, hoping to make sure she loses her balance. Assuming that the regain of balance for Bre would only take a short while, she makes Bre feel like her feet have become hardened, before running of to a high place.
Breanna: She starts to lose her balance but, as Vicki hardens her feet to the ground, she regains her balance easily. She tries to move, but, noticing her feet are hardened, and she is fairly slow, she notices the nearby vegetation, and, the owl that has landed on a tree. She, still trying to get her feet unhardened, calls upon the allegiance of this owl. The owl then flies after Vicki, determination in both the Owl's and Bre's eyes, the Owl knowing exactly what to do.
Vicki: She runs into what was a hotel, and goes to the first floor. There, she has a good view of Breanna, and, changing her bow and arrows from their mist form of a bracelet, began to fire three arrows at Breanna, each with a three second gap.
Breanna: As the three arrows are fired, the Owl Breanna called to her allegiance goes to grab the first one to swoop past her in her talons, and, turns around, aiming it back at Vicki and then, swoops closer to her, aiming at her left thigh, and, trying to build up enough energy to shoot it there, and, let's go. Breanna, manages to dodge the first of the two arrows at her, but, the second one skims her arm, causing a mediocre cut on her forearm. She manages to get her feet unhardened and, attempts to run after Vicki, grabbing her spear, ignoring the pain that's searing through her arm, and, the slight blood that seaps out of that cut.
Vicki: Seeing the arrow fly back at her, she, like she normally does to evade something, sidesteps. However the arrow did catch her on the side of her thigh, causing a small gash to appear. She, not being near any flowers or trees to regain health, quickly uses the tip of one of her arrows to cut a part of her top off to wrap around the gash. After, she runs down the stairs and exits using the back entrance. From there, she transforms into a lion and runs, in an attempt to gain some distance between herself and Breanna.
Breanna: She continues running after Vicki, running around the hotel. She notices Vicki's change into a lion and sighs exasperatingly. She continues running after Vicki the Lion, the Owl, still under Bre's allegiance, begins to fly after Vicki, going to peck at her scalp. Bre attempts to calm Vicki down, hoping to get her to stop running, and, maybe even turn back to a normal girl. Her grip on her spear tightens as she runs and tries to concentrate.
Vicki: She, being pecked at by the bird, stops for a moment, swiping at the bird, before noticing Breanna running towards her, and running down some alley ways. Once she's confident that she's concealed in an almost maze of alley ways, she transforms back into her normal self, and sits down, hoping to regain some energy. Having noticed some bushes and small plants near her, she quickly uses them to make a small sword, so she could defend herself if Breanna should find her before she has regained the large portion of energy that she lost.
Breanna: She sees Vicki running into the alley and sighs, continuing to sprint after her, her breathing becoming shallow. The owl that had been under her allegiance, finally flies away, clearly not under allegiance anymore. She sprints into the alley maze, and, stops, breathing heavily. She pushes a hand through her semi-matted hair and sighs whole-heartedly. She notices that some of the stones and gravel in the alley way had been moved, seeing some dirt on the upturned side, rather than the side facing down. She starts to follow this trail quickly, yet carefully, holding her spear closer to her, incase any new dangers present it's self.
Vicki: After a while, she feels as if she's regained enough energy to walk around again. She groggily walks around, kicking some rubble out of her way. When she nears the end of one of the alley ways, she hears the footsteps that belong to Breanna. Being motivated by her previous attempts, she runs out in front of Breanna, and uses the roots of a tree that is close by, to drain some of Breanna's energy. The amount of energy drained is only enough to make Breanna weak so she could have the upper hand.
Breanna: Her energy is drained slightly, but, she remains standing. She breathes heavily, contemplating her next move, her eyes more determined than ever. She slightly loosens her grip on her spear, as she looks over Vicki carefully.She looks for a pressure point on Vicki, and, manages to see one, although she's weak. Breathing heavily, though, she quickly begins regaining health, due to the power that Athena's Children are stronger during battle. She lunges forwards, towards Vicki, and, goes to strike it with the non-pointy end of her spear, hoping for it to hit it's target, and, preparing a strategy if Vicki manages to dodge.
Vicki: She, having been unable to move as she was draining some of Breanna's energy, is hit by the spear. She falls over, but quickly stands up, and charges at Breanna, her small sword that she had made only a minute ago raised and ready to attack. She does, however, move to the side as she does this, so behind her, the alley way is situated, so she could, if needed, escape quickly and have time to prepare a counter attack.
Breanna: She momentarily faulters, wondering why it didn't immobilize Vicki but, shrugs it off after a moment. She turns her spear around, so the spear head is directed towards Vicki. She, her breathing becoming more steady by the moment. She stands in a slightly offensive position, her spear held more outward, and, her legs slightly apart. She gives a final sigh, thinking of what to do before doing it. She goes to hit another pressure point of Vicki, a different one than the last, hoping to immobolize her for a second time.
Vicki: Having learned that pressure point attacks was a way Breanna uses, she jumps and changes into her lion form once again. She roars to intimidate Breanna, and, instead of directly attacking her, she circles Breanna, roaring at times, waiting for the right time to pounce.
Breanna: She, however, is not fazed by Vicki's transformation, as she saw Vicki as a lion already. She holds up her spear, holding it across her face, her most vulnerable part at the current moment. Her eyes are full of determination, and slight desperation, to win this battle. She starts to attempt to calm Vicki down enough, as to make her not attack Bre, so, Bre can get the upper hand.
Vicki: For a brief moment, Vicki stops patrolling, before changing back to her human self when realising that she wouldn't be able to get a good attack on Breanna. Instead, she looks over behind Breanna, to see some fallen rocks discarded on the floor. Using her ability to manipulate them, she makes them crash against the building they are laying in beside, causing more rubble to fall. The aim of this, is to have some small rocks hit Breanna from behind, mainly at her legs and feet. Once doing this, Vicki uses some of the dirt on the floor to teleport from her current position. As she was drained from the lion transformation, she couldn't teleport that far, so she ended up moving a few metres to the left. Once she had teleported, she turns her bow length ways and loads three arrows into it, before releasing, hoping that at least one would happen to hit Breanna.
Breanna: She is hit with some rocks, though, as the rocks fall from above, it hits her on the top of her head, momentarily dazing her. She, however, quickly snaps out of the daze, and, pulls a Vicki, side stepping away from the falling rubble. She notices Vicki shooting the 3 arrows, and, once again, goes to side step the group of three arrows. One, however, skims her arm, in the same place that Vicki's first set of arrows hit. It begins to bleed more severely than when it was first cut. She winces in pain as the arrow hits her. She, however, continues to hold her spear up, and glares an icy stare at Vicki. She calls upon the allegiance of an owl, yet again, and has it attempt to peck at, and distract, Vicki. While the owl goes to work, Breanna charges, her spear in hand, and determination in her eyes. She holds her spear high, and, once close enough to her target, Vicki, she goes to slash at Vicki, hoping to hit her right hand, the one which has her bow in it.
Vicki: She fires an arrow at the owl, before looking down and seeing Breanna. Not knowing what to do, her available options decreasing with each step Breanna takes, Vicki stands there, and waits until the last moment where she'll sidestep. As she does this, Breanna's spear slashes her right wrist, causing a considerable amount of blood to be shed. Vicki smiles, wincing as she does, "Y-You're good...I could learn from you...we should speak more!"
Breanna: Breanna looks at the girl, her icy glare melting. She, breathing heavily, smiles in a slightly playful way. "Thanks, kid. And, we should." She, continuing to slightly pant, before shrugging a bit, and holding her arm that has been cut twice, and continues to bleed, and, limps out of the place, going to seek medical attention.
Both Oli and Unu did okay, Unu had good use of the owl, that her character, had allegiance with. She used well for both defensive and offensive. But Oli had his character use the environment more to his advantage. Both of them should have balanced their attacks (offense and defense, and powers and weapons) more. It seems that they didn't have a strategy in this battle, and their attacks weren't creative, therefore they got low points for those areas. In my opinion both of them did okay, and more improvement can be made though, though.
Unu wins by one point.
