    Reyna recoiled at his initial touch but eventually gave in and sank back into her original position. A long sigh escaped from her lips. Feuer might’ve escaped with the weapon, but without the aid of a well-learned sorcerer, he wouldn’t be able to make changes to what effects it bore. “Almost...” she replied. “I tried to scramble its effects during my duel with Feuer. As long as the artifact isn’t complete, its properties can be altered.” She turned her head to look up at the daemonslayer but saw something that she hadn't noticed before. As he touched the top of her head, she no longer saw him as someone to be feared; a threat. Behind all of that pride and strength, James Eredas had a heart. He could’ve been her friend just as easily as Jin. Her gaze dropped to the horizon, and then down to her feet. “I’m sorry for trying to kill you,” even when she said it, she knew how worthless her apology was. The damage to the world had already been done. @Fierach

    Agent-002 Codename: Dionysus

    Techniques Feet (Haste) When necessary, Dionysus may concentrate all the energy in his body into a single point below the ball of each foot. He has mastered the ability to alternate the energy between both feet with each step he takes. This allows him to travel at incredible speeds with almost no limit. The only drawback is that his senses do not keep up with his feet, and any collision at that velocity could be fatal. Feet (Water Walking) Dionysus’ feet hit the water so fast that he may run over large bodies of water, so long as he does not decelerate. Fist (Blade) Dionysus’ punches can tear through flesh. He exerts all of his strength into a single point of the receiving party, allowing him to dent metal and shred through bone. Fist (Hammer) Dionysus can increase the surface area of his punches into a completely flat rectangle. His punches will feel abnormal, with force equally distributed across each point of the rectangle. These blows knock foes back more than regular punches. Palm Style (Meridian Disruption) The signature stance of the meridian fighting style is the palm stance. When struck correctly, Dionysus may disrupt the meridians of his opponents. Whether or not they seem to be affected by it, it seems to be his favorite style as it provides a perfect balance of force and agility. Elbow (Guard) The elbows are the sturdiest point of a meridian fighter. When in the proper stance, the elbow acts as a shield against physical blows. When used aggressively, the elbow is swung like a dagger but functions like a mace, crushing and disorientating enemies to be finished off using the palm or finger stance. Knees (Springs) While the knees themselves are weak, they function as pivots for the calf to rotate on. The body of a disciplined fighter can deliver several powerful blows in quick succession using the feet by relying on the knees as a handle. Thigh (Iron) The thigh is the strongest part of the meridian fighter but also the slowest. A kick is only fully committed to when the thigh, calf, and foot are collinear to one another. Such a blow, if dealt to the torso, can result in instant severe internal injury. The reason that thigh kicks are not often used by Dionysus is that they are simply too predictable and will leave one in a poor state of balance if the kick fails to connect. Finger of Death A technique invented by Dionysus. When all of the force exerted by the body is applied to an area the size of a fingertip, it generates enough contact pressure to pierce through flesh and sinew.

    Agent-002 Codename: Dionysus

    The Meridians The meridians are a series of "energy highways" that flow throughout the body. They exist in corresponding pairs, with each one within the body flowing parallel to one outside of the body. These pathways are invisible and intangible. There are twelve main meridians which have various points of strength and weakness. The Secret of the Isle Dionysus was made to study the meridians since the age of six. During that time, he also trained to use them to generate extremely large amounts of contact pressure by applying a large force to an area smaller than a pin. He does this by concentrating the force exerted by his entire body into a single chokepoint of the meridians. Some points are stronger than others, some significantly weaker. As such, he has trained rigorously for decades to achieve a lean but compact form capable of outputting 1500 neutons of force on a single point.

    -Timeskip- In the aftermath of the event, Reyna gazed over the remains of Reece’s log cabin. Thick trails of smoke still rose from the cold ashes of their battleground. The battleground had been cold long enough for the silence to settle in. The battleground had been cold long enough for her skin to form back around her. Feuer and Break had gotten ahold of the weapon and escaped. “Uurghhaah!” Reyna shouted in frustration, kicking a pebble into a puddle of dirty water. She crouched on her knees in her torn and tattered garb. Forget that she was a duchess, knight, and queen. At this moment, she was but a mad scientist who had let her experiment get out of control. To worsen it all, the brand of traitor, unnatural, plague, they all called out to her, as if a thousand fingers were being pointed. She had given an unpredictable weapon to an equally unpredictable creature. Any further blood that was shed by him was on her hands. “I was only trying to protect my people,” she muttered to herself. Her hands shook and she knew in her heart how disappointed Grant would be to see her like this. He would be even more livid after finding out what she had done. @Fierach

    As the chains wrapped around her with blinding speed, Reyna soon found herself utterly and completely restrained. “What the- AAAH,” she grimaced as the chains began to burn into her flesh. Feuer might’ve begun to receive bits and pieces of her memory as a human, including the encounter that turned her into what she was. But as her flesh burned away and the chains came into open contact with her core system, blue light began to emanate from the wounds. Then, she exploded like a supernova. A ripple of cold burst forward, surging past Feuer and then the trees around them, possibly knocking him backward. The burning house was immediately extinguished. The ground was frosted over, save for the area around Break, spared only by his heat generator. Feuer’s chains were made of tough material, but when so close to the heart of a lich, the molecules within them contracted so much that they shattered like glass upon a single flex of her skeletal arms. Beginning to levitate off the ground, Reyna raised herself to look the Fire King eye to eye. The right half of her face had been burnt off by the heat. Lifting her right skeletal arm to her face, she tore off the remaining half. As she scowled at him, her skull looked as if it was undergoing a fit of mad laughter. “As I said,” her voice came from the air around them, the cold air vibrating to the rhythm of her vocal cords. “You have something that belongs to me.” Her own chains came out this time, flowing out from her sleeves. Frozen over and colored in a frosty shade of blue, they surged towards Feuer and sought to wrap themselves around his wrists.

    "LISTEN, YOU COME OUT PEACEFULLY AND I PROMISE I WONT HARM YOU, MUCH." Reyna narrowed her eyes at the angry little man in the distance. She could barely make out what he was saying, but she was sure that it was some expression of his irritation. "COME FORTH!" It was then that the explosion went off. Her eyes snapped about; James was nowhere in sight. Feuer was getting away. Once again, the pair of magical chains formed in her hands. Hooking them around the few trees that had survived his wrath, she slingshotted herself into the path of the Fire King. “You have something that belongs to me,” she demanded. With a single twist from both of hands, the hooked ends of the chains were sent careening into Feuer's torso.

    With quite some effort, the dragon was able to overcome Reyna’s glacial barrier. It became apparent to her that she couldn’t stop the dragon. But what she could stop, was the rider. Her skeletal fist stretched open, a ball of blue concentrated cold forming within. The cold molded itself into a needle-like object, growing in size with each passing second. When it had reached about a meter long, Reyna hurled the ice lance at Break, the sudden contraction of air around its tip sucking the icicle into an accelerated thrust towards the cyborg. However, the moment the blade came close to break, it evaporated into water instead of running him through the chest. Reyna’s eyes widened, and she quickly deduced that he had some form of a heat generator around his body, essentially protecting him from all of her frost-based abilities. Unfortunately for Break, Reyna was not just the Lich Queen. She was also a sorceress, trained from the age of six to be adept at wielding spells from all trades of the art. With her flesh bound right palm, she conjured a fireball about the size of an apple. When she flung it at Break, it continued to grow in size, expanding to the size of a watermelon when it made contact with him. Although slower than the ice lance, the fireball would not be affected by Break’s aura of heat. Upon contact, the explosion would engulf his dragon in flames, but more importantly, send the rider flying off of his mount.

    Jinsoku Hayabusa vs ???

    “Kendra,” she replied as her eyelids fluttered open. When she noticed that the distance between the pair remained unchanged, she was overcome with frustration. “Fine... We’ll do it the traditional way...” With her blood-soaked hand still pressing against her wound, she stood up and drew her dagger. When she did, she felt an odd displacement within her chest. Something important had been hit badly, but she couldn’t figure out what it was. As she took her first step towards Jinsoku, dagger pointing at his bare torso, a stream of blood squirted out from the wound and flowed out from the corners of her mouth, splattering Jinsoku’s feet in crimson liquid. She sank to her knees, the dagger hitting the ground uselessly at her side.

    Incoming from up high? Reyna had no idea what James was talking about until the gust of wind hit her. Digging her toes into the ground, she tried to maintain her footing but was quickly lifted off the ground by its sheer force. As she flew backward, her hands came up to the middle of her chest. Upon touching each of her palms with the opposite hand’s index finger, the air between her palms began to glow green. Fanning her hands out, two coils of ethereal chains shot out to hook themselves around a pair of trees. A few seconds later, they... missed? Failure to use her chains to decelerate caused her to smash painfully into a tree. The chains shattered instantly as she crumpled. She shouldn’t have missed the grapple, but she did. It became apparent to Reyna that she was battling against another enemy, one that James couldn’t possibly help her with. Sleep deprivation. The initial adrenaline from the anxiety of encountering the daemonslayer was long gone and she struggled to keep her eyes open. Pushing herself to her feet, she limped forward for a few steps before her feet completely left the ground. A simple hovering spell; concentrating on hovering would keep her awake. As she drew closer, she saw what was long obvious, James squaring off against the Fire King. It was as if history was repeating itself. But what history did not include, was the dragon that charged towards James from behind. As if for dramatic effect, the thunderclouds finally relented and a soft drizzle began. Whoever the dragon rider was, it rode in with the intent to harm James, and that was enough to justify her wrath. Right hand extended low in front of her with her left elbow bent with fingers raised to the side of her skull as if nocking an arrow, she took a stance that seemed as if she was cranking a massive lever with both of her arms. Her eyes began to glow blue and there was a rumbling in the earth that would put Feuer’s landing to shame. Water trapped by the grass began to concentrate in a single area below the ground and freeze. With visible difficulty, Reyna raised her open right palm to the sky, cranking the imaginary lever. Nocturna would suddenly find her claws slipping across a wet surface. Below the dragon, a massive iceberg the size of a house would rise out of the ground, catching the dragon by its torso. The iceberg would continue to rise at an alarming speed, flipping the dragon over along with its rider. Although sleep deprived, it didn’t make the Lich Queen any less dangerous.

    As James drew his longsword, he unwittingly brought it too near Reyna’s outstretched palm. Exposure to the aura so close to its source melted the flesh off her hand like burning wax, revealing a set of skeletal fingers. It didn’t cause her any pain, nor did it stop her from sighing glumly as she rolled her bony fingers back and forth. “He’s not here for you,” she said. “He’s here for the weapon.” Said weapon was currently buried under several layers of rubble which Feuer was inconveniently standing on top of. The impact of his landing might have severely damaged some of the enchantments... Or it might’ve not. Magic was a complicated thing. “He might have crushed the staircase to where I was hiding it. But if you can get him away from the rubble, I could phase through the ground to get it...” Reyna’s face lit up upon a sudden realization. “...And we might be able to use it to end him once and for all.”

    “I...” it took Reyna a few seconds for all the information to sink in. “...I don’t-” All of a sudden, she heard a rush of air. It came from above them and grew louder with each passing second. At that moment, she realized what was about to happen. “Don’t move!” she shouted at James, spreading her hands out as the orb rapidly expanded to encase both of them in a protective bubble. Wrapping her left arm around him, she pulled him close as Feuer came crashing down through the roof. The explosion sent them hurtling out of the building, encased within the protective bubble. They bounced against the ground several times before it gradually rolled to a stop on the outskirts of the woods. Sharp pieces of broken wood showered the protective bubble but were mostly deflected save for one or two pieces. The entire building was engulfed in fire. “This busybody neighbor...” Reyna muttered wearily to James as she gingerly pried herself away from him. “I’m going to kill him.” @Bureku

    “Cut off the head of the snake and the body will falter, even if ever so briefly,” Reyna remarked, although her body language seemed to suggest that she was apologetic for the nature of her creation. “Whoever told you about what I was doing probably didn’t give you the full story. The weapon I am creating isn’t designed as a failsafe for you in particular. It just so happens to be equally effective against you as it is against who it is meant for.” Snapping her fingers, a blue orb appeared above right palm, pivoting on an invisible point above her index finger. “Have a look,” she said, tossing the orb towards James. The inside of the orb showed two scenes that repeated themselves over and over. The first was one of James being struck by lightning three times and appearing largely unaffected. The second was of the Fire King incinerating dozens of men with a single fireball. “I don’t know how my future mother-in-law would react to knowing I created something like this, which is why I had to do it in secret. It isn't my place to be questioning her associates, especially in such times of rising tension...” At that moment, a horrifying thought occurred to her. “You aren’t going to tell her, are you?”

    "You simply speak too loudly, and have busybody neighbors. Or, I guess your boyfriend does". James response came as somewhat of a relief to Reyna. That didn’t stop her from being just as perplexed by his strange response, but she allowed her clenched fists to relax. Standing aside, she allowed him to enter without any resistance. Perhaps James might’ve seen the tension in her muscles, but he was dead on when he remarked about her needing to relax, "If I had come to fight, we would not even be having this conversation." “I imagine there are a few people who would be quite disappointed if they knew that we had fought,” she replied thoughtfully. "So I hear you want to kill me?" She weighed her response carefully. The conversation was beginning to enter dangerous waters. “Not exactly... I’m designing more of a failsafe, should you ever go... Rogue,” she paused ever so briefly before continuing, to make sure that James wasn’t getting agitated. “With utmost respect Master Eredas, you of all people should be aware of how powerful you are. And if you should someday ever... Not be in your right mind, you have the potential to wipe out entire cities off the face of Valucre.” Tapping her nail rapidly against the table, she took a deep breath before confessing, “Perhaps there are those who could stand up to you if you are ever on the wrong side. But I don’t want to rely on the actions of others to safeguard myself, my love, and my people from a threat that could wipe them all out like crushing a mound of ants with the sole of a shoe.”

    The dread that settled in was enough to briefly stop her heart. Reyna knew god damned well who it was outside the door. There was no one else who would have gone through all the effort just to hunt her down to have a talk. If he had come, he probably already knew what she was up to, or had some idea of it. However, it was impossible that he had any evidence of it. She had been much too careful. Or at least, she thought she had been. Limbs elongating to their natural length, she morphed back into her usual guise. “Master Eredas,” she began, her voice quivering with a hint of fury when she realized that there had been only one person that she had told about her plans. The door opened fully and she met his gaze eye to eye, now standing just as tall as he was. There was a certain alacrity in the way her fists were balled up, even though her form was in no way a match to that of the daemonslayer's. Only three words. “Who told you?”
