A horde of diminutive cloaked Onibi scrabble towards the gap in the coral shielding Siren from view, with only a few Kaijin between them and their target.

Fortunately for Siren, that is all that they need.

Theme of Fantômas (Joker Theme)

"Of course you make it so I can hear him." Mori hissed in his thoughts.

Even with the rest of the world dulled to radio static, Andras's words had made their way to his ears uninterrupted.


"Talking back? So we do have progress." Fantomas replied, strutting into Mori's field of view, "Well, it's important to get a second opinion on these kinds of things. Admittedly he's wrong about most of what he says, but there's certainly some information you can take from what he says."


"Shut. Up."


"And now we're back." Fantomas sighed. He lifted up Mori's chin with his staff, forcing him to stare into the empty eyes of the mask... but there was some intensity to the darkness this time that hadn't been there before. "And. Then. What? What happens if I shut up? We'll be right back here the next time you need an excuse not to work on your own issues. How many times can you break down in the middle of a battlefield before you run out of people to save you anyway? I'd say you're more a liability than an ally, but you'll just add it to your fucking complex and we'll have another voice in here in a few weeks after the next mid-battle therapy session. Face it, you don't really want me to shut up, you need me."


"What the hell do I need you for? All you do is make my life a living Hell!"


"And herein lies the essential service I provide. All the nightmares and the message provide you with just what you need: someone to blame. Sorry to break it to you, but your life was pretty shitty before I started talking. But since I opened my mouth, you've had an invincible boogieman to accuse of everything. After all, how can you start to get better as long as big bad Fantomas is standing in the way? And you know why? Because the moment you have to accept that this is all your fault, then you realize that you could have chosen at any time to change, or to take a different path, but you never did. Because then you’d have to take a risk, look the people you hurt in the eyes and say sorry, let people in again, and you’re more afraid of that than you’ve ever been of what might become of you. And I’m sick and tired of being your enabler. It’s a sink or swim world kid, time to stop treading water.”

Mori's breathing rattled. He searched for some comeback or retort, but nothing came to him. All he could think of was...


"I don't have time for this. I need to save Futaba."


"Oh, by all means, don't let me stop you." Fantomas said. He snapped his fingers and suddenly Mori's limbs fell limp, and he scrambled to stay standing, "But we're not done talking just yet."

With control of his body back, Mori turned to retort to Andras, only to find his mouth still refused to speak. Without another option, he flipped the toad off and ran towards the nearest pillar, shattering it with a stab.

Quote from: Ripper Threat Attacks
Jack the Ripper casts Eviscerate, targeting Akihiko!
Jack's attacks are feral and frenzied. Akihiko, by contrast, is calm. Almost too calm.

The first stab, charged with shadowy energy, Akihiko dodges almost non-chalantly, the blade landing an inch away from where he was a moment ago. The second stab lands on target. Or it would, if Akihiko hadn't caught the blade, being forced to his knees to avoid it hitting him directly. The spells used on Akihiko have visibly weakened him, as he trembles and struggles beneath the weight of Jack, but you can almost see his furrowed brow beneath his masked visage, as he fights against the stronger opponent.

The larger Majin lifts another hand onto the hilt of his knife, attempting to manoeuvre it into Akihiko's body, but the Kaijin is able to muster enough power to push the knife's blade into the sand next to him. With a swift kick to the ribs, Akihiko pushes him back.

"...eh?"
"People like you...."

Akihiko stands back up, unsteady. His stance is not the martial artist's stance he prefers, but one slightly hunched over, fists clenched.

"....I'll make sure you'll never hurt Futaba again."

As the Onibi continue to fail to deter Akihiko, even with an arrow embedded in his shoulder, Jack's facade begins to crack.
"N-no. That can't be right. This is MY Domain, the world of demons, the world that grants my wishes! How can you...."

The enemy begins to lose their nerve....
Jack the Ripper's Daunt no longer affects Mildred, Saya and Akihiko.
Onibi will now attempt to bypass Akihiko unless he attacks them or Jack directly.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the map, Momotaro is having more than somewhat of a difficult time.

~~Scathach and Fantomas vs Andras~~
The shadows continue attempting to pelt Scathach and Fantomas with debilitating magic, but Mori can feel Scathach's power shielding him from the worst of the effects, a purple sheen over his body shining every time a spell is negated.

Andras takes another lunge at Mori while he's distracted, and once again Kanade gets in his way. Taking a knife in her shoulder, her counterattack sends the Majin sprawling, another chunk of cloth and shadow torn from his body with a stab.

Kanade stumbles back, wrenching the blade out of her shoulder with an armblade. She shudders, turning to Mori and continuing to place herself between Mori and Andras.

"If this goes sideways, Sawatari, get the hell out of here and leave me. I'll make sure he doesn't get to you."

Quote from: Andras Threat Attacks
Andras casts Dagger Rain, targeting Reynart!

Mildred falls back to M20 and uses a FAK. Saya moves to N21. Akihiko moves to O21 to help form the defensive wall to keep Jack away from Siren.

Whatever Mishima's statement had been, Mori wasn't sure if he was glad or not that he couldn't hear her.  Now if she'd just stop standing between him and Andras so someone with the ability to actually help could get out of here with Shimoniya and help the other stop Jack, that would be grand. He threw another kunai at the ice crystal behind Andras, shattering it, which unfortunately didn't result in a massive chunk smacking him in the back of the head. Regardless, he kept moving, running over to Scathach and allowing another tendril of silver mist to wrap around her, stitching up the wound in her shoulder.


"You see, you keep doing that."


"...what?"


"That." He gestured at the silver mist coming off Mishima’s shoulder "The healing Mishima. Taking a hit for Akari. Refusing to count yourself among the people who need healing when you’re about to collapse. You keep asking why everyone acts like you’re worth saving? It’s that. It’s all those little things of taking care of people, people who aren’t ‘your people’, and don’t even get me started on how you treat your people. You treat the people who try to help you like they’re crazy, because you push the little bit of your brain that realizes you’re a decent person to the very back so you don’t have to consider it. For fucks sake, you spat in Mishima’s face the other day and now she’s here. What do you take from that?"


"I'm not responsible for other people's bad decisions." Mori replied "All I can do is try my best to protect them from the risk of my association. Mishima said it herself, she’s a bad judge of people. As for all the little things I do, what do they matter? A good deed here and there doesn’t make up for the sins I regularly commit to keep everything going as I want it to. If they weren’t so fixed on the bits of good I do to realize the kind of person I really am, then they would leave me to my fate like everyone should. I don't deserve their help or mercy, so I won't take it from them. I can't reach out with bloody hands, all I'll do is get that blood on everyone else."

Fantomas looked right at him, and sighed.


"Guess you aren’t ready after all. Well, regardless of if you think you deserve to change or not, go ahead and take a look around at what you can do if you keep refusing every hand that reaches your way. What chance do you have against Andras alone? It's only because you're working alongside Mishima that you have the slightest chance of making it out of here alive, not to mention Shimoniya. If not for your own sake, then recognize that you don't have a single chance to stop Andras unless you come to a decision. Nothing could be more sink or swim than this. Drown in your own dark side or climb until you can breathe again, but it's time that you realize that the only hands that keep you from making your way to the light are your own."

Don't worry too much about the one mistake, Smoke Mirrors. Your character was memorable for all the demonology and story writing.

I’m running a game/mechanics test called Fate/Mechanics Test. Feel free to check it out.

With a wave of Onibi approaching the group, the group takes battle positions, retreating to the back and preparing their positions.

One minute, the Onibi were there.

The sand beneath their feet turned to water.

The next, only the Onibi that had come out to protect Siren remained, not a trace of the other Onibi remaining.

Taking positions to block off the the chokepoints, the Onibi take advantage and position themselves to protect and block off the access to their master.

Kanade and Mori vs. Andras
Andras simply laughs as Mori continues to assist Kanade.
"You two....and you think you're the same as me? You want to reach out to this pathetic wretch, Mishima? Are you serious?"

Kanade floats backwards, seemingly readying herself.
"As long as....I can reach even one person....that's all that matters. You'd never get it."

Siren's booming declaration echoes through the Domain. Andras visibly grins.
"Well. It seems like I've won. Even if you beat me here, Princess...it's already on the way. And you're on your last legs.

Once I'm done, I'll let you live long enough to see what I'll do to Sawatari."


At that, Kanade visibly tenses.
"I'm ending this. Now."

She raises an arm-blade to the side, the blade gleaming with lethal sharpness.

"Scathach, I call down your power. Bring down upon him a starless shadow!"

In the blink of an eye, Kanade surges past Andras, so quick that Mori swears he can see afterimages of her ebony form, so fast that he can't quite process just what happened.

For a minute, the world falls silent.
Quote from: Scathach vs. Andras
(Kanade will accelerate beyond herself!)
(Kanade will chase the world!)
(Scathach's Revolution is active!)
(Andras has found his anathema....)

Hit: 14, hit!

Luna+ check: 5, pass!

Andras takes 150 damage!
Andras is defeated!
And it all happens too in a blink of an eye.

Andras collapses to one knee, an entire chunk of his midsection torn away as Kanade whips her blade aside, casting parts of Andras aside to fade to smoke and ashes. He looks visibly pained; though his body is visibly reforming, it is clear that however hard Kanade just hit him, it was quick and hard enough to end the fight right then and there.

Then Mori notes something about Andras' body.

There were roughly about twenty or thirty slash marks and cuts across Andras' body, none of them having been there before Kanade hit him, some still glowing with Scathach's violet energy.

In the space of a single second, Kanade had slashed at him nearly thirty times.

Andras grunts, stumbling to his feet and pointing an icy knife at her.
"Heh...I'm still not ready for you, huh? Never you mind....Princess. We'll have our rematch soon enough."

"..."

Before Kanade can move to grab Andras, the Majin turns into what looks like liquid shadow, dropping to the floor and disappearing into nothingness. The Onibi he took over dissolve into darkness, leaving nothing but copies of Andras' mask, which linger just long enough to feel like they're staring at Mori before they, too, fade into shadows.

At this point, Kanade finally falls to the ground, her hovering stopping at this point as she uses one arm-blade to prop herself up like a crutch.

"....seems like that took a lot out of me, huh?"

Reward condition achieved.
Mori gains Actor's Mask: +5 HP healed, debuffs last 1 turn longer.

Siren vs. Jack the Ripper
"You...this is MY world! We can do what we want! I won't let you get between me and Fuu-chan! Stupid kid! Stupid, stupid, STUPID!"

Jack, consumed with rage and fear, makes another lunge for Akihiko....but Akihiko is ready.
Quote from: Jack vs. Ibaraki-Douji
(Jack's Masochism is active! +4 DMG, +10 Critical)
(Akihiko's Daunt is active!)
(Ibaraki-Douji's Bloodthirst is active!)
(Tsukiyomi's Mirror of Night activates!)
(Saya's Support activates!)
(Akihiko is sick...)

Jack initiates!
Hit Rate: 77 to hit
Hit: 78, miss!

Ibaraki-Douji retaliates!
Hit Rate: 92 to hit
Hit: 64, hit!
Critical: 11, crit!
Jack the Ripper takes 50 damage!

Jack the Ripper loses one Life Point!
Despite his unorthodox stance and the fell mood upon him, Akihiko effortlessly dodges another blow from the Ripper, avoiding the Majin's wild thrust, before smashing a fire-shrouded fist into Jack's chin, pushing him back.

"No...that's not right...you....you won't beat me in here! You can't!"

Jack lets out an indecipherable noise, halfways between a hiss and a roar, before the gathered army of Onibi that had joined him to attack Siren stop in their tracks. Their bodies contort, warp and press together, most of them coalescing into gigantic piles of mud, metal and shadows on the field.

The only Onibi remaining are hulking, skeletal monsters, similar in appearance to Jack, and something about them seems off - a dark, shadowy aura surrounds them, seemingly boosting their strength.

Quote from: Jack vs. Ibaraki-Douji
Jack casts Eviscerate, targeting Ibaraki-Douji!

Jack's resolve is wavering...
Jack's Onibi are retreating! Only Possessive Slashers remain!

Possessive Slashers all gain 1 Press Turn and gain Shielding! All damage that is not their weakness will be halved! Possessive Slashers gain 1 Life Point!
Possessive Slashers gain Sink Beneath, Perverse Sense and Double Fangs!
Enemy reinforcements change: 3x Possessive Slashers will now spawn in one turn within two spaces of Proioxis and Pyrrha.

Reward condition changed: One of Proioxis or Tsukiyomi can now land the killing blow on Jack.

Kanade and Mori will arrive in one turn!

"Well then."


"What do you say, Sawatari Mori?"

Mori stared at the spot where Andras had been. He took a deep breath and unclenched his jaw.


"Two." he said, as he planted Kogarasu Maru in the sand, using it to help him pull Mishima to her feet, placing her arm over his shoulder. "That's the answer I decided."

"You're less than roadside litter, you shitty stalker, and it's garbage day!"

Mildred somehow whipped the winds up underwater, creating miniature whirlpools and currents that sucked the sand up and formed the grains into seemingly thousands of long, thin needles. She darted around him, throwing the improvised projectiles at him from every conceivable angle.

Proioxis moves to O18 and Needle Runs Jack!

Despite Kanade's currently robotic appearance, she seems to be rather light, and even with his relatively unathletic frame Mori is able to easily heft her arm over his shoulder.
"Two.....?"
