Tony: Since he was going to challenge the current Head Counsellor, he wore his armor, and his rapier was held on his left hand. He walked toward the Arena, a bit nervous, but hopeful.
Tony: He charges toward Mikael, his rapier in hand, ready for anything that may happen, or at least that is what he thinks. He notices that Mikael has nocked an arrow, although he can't know for sure what type of arrow it may be, he sort of feels that it must not be a normal one. So when he gets near enough to him, he slashes his rapier, luckily, it would make a gash on his hand. All of this happens in a really short period of time, his mind whirring and trying to look for signs that may give him clues on Mikael's next move.
Mikael: Mikael watched as Tony rushed him immediately upon entering the crumbling temple. This gave him more than enough time to roll to the side, getting to his feet. Once he regained his bearing, Mikael fired the smoke arrow at the ground. Smoke erupted from the ground, not hindering their breathing, but their sight was basically stripped from them. Without even a second of hesitation, Mikael reorients himself, so Tony can't simply lunge towards him. He stomps the ground, a wall of stone erupting from the ground where Tony stood, at last Mikael noticed. Quickly thereafter, Mikael shot the regular arrow in the same direction, turning tale and sprinting out the temple before Tony could retaliate.
Tony: Still not totally localized from the smoke, he tries to hear everything, to know where he is. He hears the arrow coming, but a split second too late. It didn't really totally get into his skin, but it did make a horizontal gash on his left side. He winces in pain but hears Mikael's footsteps. He trusts his hearing instincts and runs after him and before getting out of the foggy temple he has an idea. He looks for Mikael outside of the temple. When he finds him, he doesn't run toward him, but suddenly has an idea. He turns to his right and tries to avoid being seen by walking discreetly through the shadows toward a small woodlog and grabs it. He returns running toward the temple, his left side searing from the cut, definitely now noticed from the noise he makes, and lights the wood up with the fire from the left pyre. He then puts the log in the grass.
Mikael: Mikael is confused as to why Tony doesn't attack him outright, lightning a fire instead. It didn't quite eat through the jungle, as the plants were all well hydrated. A brisk job had Mikael out o harms way, standing in the middle of a sunny field. He unfolds his bow, locking it into it's longbow mode, aiming an arrow at full draw in the direction he came from, expecting Tony to show up soon.
Tony: Hopefully the fire had done enough to distract Mikael as he got back into the temple. He grabs his rapier and waiting for Mikael to come in so he could create the smokescreen, not to escape, but to try to hurt Mikael using the element of surprise for his own sake.
