    "I guess so..." she whispered, smiling to herself, "but we're all in the hunting grounds for a reason. You're just a good person and therefore can't hurt a child."
    Silver reaches in her pouch and brings out a long, black whip.
    "You owe me by the way."

    Jit shudders.
    The hunting grounds? Is that where we are?
    Then he sees the whip.
    I wouldn't recommend using that. Pain seems to change who's in control of me.

    "I never intended to use it on you.I just want to get out of here...alive."
    Silver puts her palm on the ground, closing her eyes to decide where to go. Several moments later she opens her eyes.
    "That way," she says pointing to the right.
    "Does pain make you a dark person?"

As Mateo transforms, the pondweeds holding him tighten in their grip. They are joined by more and more, which wrap around his legs and snake up his body to tie down his arms. Another curves up his back. It curves gently around his neck like a lover's touch, before suddenly and tightly constricting. As her pondweeds try to choke him, the siren lifts a single finger to her lips and makes a soft hushing noise, as if to tell Mateo not to bother fighting, to make it easy on himself.
    Mateo suddenly stops transforming, and starts transforming into a wolf- much smaller, though still larger than a natural wolf- and faster. He leaps forward as he changes, hoping that the movement and decreased size causes the slippery pondweed to loose its grip. The sudden change has caused Mateo slight disorientation, especially as the change into bear wasn't complete. Therefore, his pounce might be off-target, but he's hoping to bound into the siren and clamp his lupine/ursine jaws around her throat and bite until he feels her spine crack.

    DC knows this thing can plan, though it may or may not be doing that now considering it's so pissed off.

    So he does something a bit unexpected.

    He raises his hands into the air toward the charging beast, the bladed disc dropping to the floor as they surge with that ever-predictable red aura once again. This time, though, he does something a bit different.

    A shining translucent red forcefield flares into existence between the two, one of the stronger ones the psychic's produced. It's not likely to survive the impact, but it should stop the charging monster before promptly collapsing, the powerful impact hopefully stunning it as well.

    Nope. Doesn't get a single iota of sympathy at all from the triplets. Even if the three didn't know full well that Red's only a shapeshifter pretending to be a child to save it's own hide, they were raised and trained to show no mercy from the very moment they left the cloning vat. They're certainly not going to start now.

    Three rifles are aimed in Red's direction. "Got a reason we shouldn't kill you?"

    Conventional weapons can only do so much to the true Demonic Shapeshifter:
    Tyrant Element, it may hurt like hell to Red but not Element.

    ((There are timelines, but they're.. complicated. The scene in Trog's might be happening months after this or long before the triplets even arrived at the hunting grounds. Or both could be happening at the exact same time! Space-time is quite malleable in these parts. Best not to worry about it.))

    There's a pause. "How do we know you won't attack again?" It's difficult to trust someone who was lobbing fireballs their way just a moment ago. Moreso as Red is clearly powerful, maybe powerful enough to kill them if they don't finish him off now while he's wounded.

    A pause ensues. Silent arguments, made.

    A consensus is reached. Weaponry, lowered.

    "If it happens again we will put you down." Red warns, before grudgingly reaching a hand out for Red to shake. Not precisely a decision he's happy with, but he's only one mind out of three. Besides, it's likely only a matter of time before Red snaps and he gets to kill him anyway. "Do you need medical assistance?"

    Medical assistance?........not really unless you have magical healing capabilities. If you have food however that should help....... me heal a bit......faster. For now if you plan to go anywhere I'll follow, my.......form attracts to much attention as an easy snack......... I must not fight outside battles to fight my inner demon.

    Red sits by a nearby stones looking at the three who looked the same.

    "Since you...... answered Hircine's call, what manner of prizes have you won.......?"

    Element seems to calming inside Red with the casual chatter but best to make him completely seep first.

    Adir's step back saved him from one claw, but also offered Tovpir a moment to react when Adir heads for the tail. In the moment Adir starts his jump the earth next to the tal and claw break and a mass of purple stone breaks out of the earth right in front of him. On a closer look this mass is the main body of Tovpir. While the claw who just missed Adir now shields him the other claw tries to smash the hunter in his jump. The tail is taken upwards and seems to prepare for another attack.

    Silver smiles and her eyes begin to glow red. She looks at her whip as red jaggered patterns are revealed on it.

    She looks to her right waving her whip in the air then brings it down behind a bush smashing it onto the ground, generating a spark of electricity. Several seconds later she walks over and reaches down, grabbing the rabbit she killed, smiling to herself. Not knowing that there was someone tracking her the entire time.

    Red happily eats the rations, he eats anything so long as its edible. Then he replies,

    "You've no Idea? This is Hircine's hunting Grounds, where she summoned adventurers to Hunt prey. Those who prove themselves gain prizes. You're not pulling my leg are you?"

    "Nope. We just wandered here. Although... Now that you mention it... I guess there was something drawing us here." Thinking back upon it, First can see that there was some sort of outside force leading him and his brothers to the hunting grounds. A sort of call, an instinctual knowledge of how to find this place when a second before they had been wandering lost. "So, we get things for killing?"

    Red looks happier now since Element is completely asleep and won't come out unless he accidentally absorbs evil or foul energy again. He'll be careful on what he tries to use his absorption on next time.

    "I was not born a dragon, so I think I will live. And one more thing, the dark fire will not avail you, flame of udun."

    I'm not sure that quote quite fits the situation, but close enough. Gordon pulls out the lava cannon, the same one that took down Magtok's mecha, and turns the dial to wide, then starts running towards the creature.

    "Not born a dragon?" The hissing voice of the creature is still quite audible, even as the flames suck in the remaining light, enveloping it in darkness...

    "What a coincidence. Neither wass I." Hissing laughter rings out from the darkness...

    The creature laughs, and laughs. But then suddenly it's not a laugh any more. It's a roar and the beat of wings. Within a moment the fire goes out as the creature dismisses it.

    And where once the creature stood, now a shadowy dragon is taking off into the sky, still coated in black fire, wings beating furiously as he slowly gains altitude. It's sort of hard to tell where exactly the dragon ends, his outline seems...blurred. "And I hate what I am. I could've fought you on even terms, dragon to dragon...but instead I bested you as something inferior. Now, as I said before, I'll be leaving."

    Gordon quickly flips the dial back to thin, while shrugging off his tenchcoat. See, Gordon does know a little blood magic, and while the only blood he can manipulate is his own, that's more than enough in this case.

    With a twist of his fingers, Gordon has his bloodstained tenchcoat throw him up in the air, getting him close enough that Gordon tries to use the lava gun's thin long beam of lava to cut through the shadowy dragon's wings.

    "Sure."

    While First chats with Red, Alpha and One are watching the surrounding landscape. It's odd how little life they've seen around here. Just rabbits scurrying from burrow to burrow and the ocassional vulture circling in the air above, a herd of bison resting off in the distance. Nothing as dangerous as you would expect in a place like this. Yet.

    Silver bends low, diving to her left just as the figure fires his bow which is now aiming for Jit who stands in between his target.

    Silver hurries to her feet and runs to the target, using her whip on the branch of the attacker and swinging herself up.

    The arrow strikes Jit in the shoulder, causing him to jerk back and cry out in pain.
    RUN!
    That's all he gets out before the yell becomes a snarl. His energy claws (Wolverine meets red lightsaber) erupt as he leaps towards the archer. The arrow seems to have been forgotten, and the wound has already ceased bleeding.

    Silver, temporarily distracted witnesses the transformation of Jit allowing the mysterious figure to spin and kick Silver on the face sending her flying down to the ground head first. Fortunately, Silver manages to turn her body and therefore allows her to land on her feet. Her red eyes glow brighter causing the whip to burn through the branch of the tree leaving it unstable for the mysterious attacker.
    The attacker jumps in the air to avoid falling as Jit leaps for him, readying his bow and trying to get another arrow from his quiver, showing a hint of fear in his eyes of the enemy before him.

    "Go for it," Silver yells.

    The figure before Wenomir grows more and more life-like. Soon the demon-hunter will find himself wondering how he ever thought she was a tree? This is clearly Jedwiga, alive and in the flesh before him. Except there's something strange about her. Her skin is as pale as the white silk dress she wears, a rose pinned over her heart. The ground she stands on is not muddy swamp-brew, but instead a thick and sluggish pool of blood that slowly grows wider. The rose wilts almost immediately, staining her bodice red with blood. With glazed-over eyes, she stares at Wenomir.

    You, she says. You did this to me.

    As Mateo shape-shifts again, the slippery pond-weeds falter. By changing into a bear, he made his limbs larger and easier to ensnare. But in this much thinner form, it's very easy for the vampire to slip free of his bonds and launch himself towards the siren. Judging by the shocked look on her face, she isn't used to prey being able to escape like that (or maybe at all), and as such it's even easier for him to pounce on her. But as he lowers his mid-shift jaws to her neck, the pond-weeds redouble their efforts. With their mistress in danger they surge towards him at more than twice the speed they'd had before, pratically leaping out of the water to wrap themselves around his throat and head and pull him away.

If the horns caught fire, so would the rest of the ram. He can't see Mercutio in the distance and yells out to him. Demon! Get out of there! Unlesh you'd rather burn!


    "Yes, yes!" comes the curt and rather strained answer. "I am working on it. The extra fire really isn't helping!" Aw, but I'm sure Thenadier meant well.

    Thenadier takes aim at the charging cloud-rams! As he fires the first shot, the round tears the horn clean-off. The ram lets out a bleat of pain, rearing back. Water vapour pools out of the gaping wound, floating up into the air. The other ducks its head as Thenadier fires at it, and the bullet flies past it harmlessly. As it continues its charge, Thenadier will suddenly smell the foul stink of brimstone from behind him.

    "You really could have just stopped at the first fire," a slightly singed Mercutio observes, stepping forward to stand next to Thenadier. In his hands are two spiral horns, most likely taken from the cloud-ram he had just killed. He tosses one up in the air and catches it as he peers at the incoming cloud-ram, and the one that Theandier had shot. "Oh, look. You've figured out their weakness. Now if you'll just permit me to try a little experiment..."

    He takes a few wide strides forward, and as the charging ram gets close, steps to the side. It stampedes past him, but before it can get far Mercutio stabs it in the neck with the pointed end of the horn he gained from its peer. The horn sinks in like a blade, causing the cloud-ram to tumble over itself and fall to the ground. Mercutio grins, dropping to his knees with it and reaches for the book and pen at his waist. "Kindly take care of the last one, would you?"

    It was a desperate gamble, and it's failed. Mateo is successfully restrained, though no matter how hard they squeeze the pondweed isn't going to suffocate him. He stopped breathing outside at some point during the song, and he didn't need oxygen anyway. Mateo stops struggling, deciding to conserve his strength if another opportunity to escape comes up.

    The attacker jumps in the air to avoid falling as Jit leaps for him, readying his bow and trying to get another arrow from his quiver, showing a hint of fear in his eyes of the enemy before him.

    "Go for it," Silver yells.

    Jit kicks out as he passes the assailant, another set of claws erupting from his feet. Regardless of if they hit or not, Jit lands in a turning skid and charges towards either the assailant (if on the ground) or Silver (if assailant isn't on the ground). The look on his face is purely not human.

    Silver may want to follow his advice and run.

    The attacker is hit and sent flying to the floor but endures the damage dealt, drawing an arrow and firing it with his bow. Silver runs across to retrieve her whip then makes her way to the west.

    While First chats with Red, Alpha and One are watching the surrounding landscape. It's odd how little life they've seen around here. Just rabbits scurrying from burrow to burrow and the ocassional vulture circling in the air above, a herd of bison resting off in the distance. Nothing as dangerous as you would expect in a place like this. Yet.
