    Makuro looks down at Wenomir. She's going to get used to that eventually. "Hello. My name's Makuro." She holds a hand out to shake, and if Wenomir takes it, her grip is surprisingly strong going by how slender and not-muscular her oversized limbs look. Her hand feels a bit odd, too; rough and dry, but slightly sticky, like it's covered in really small velcro. If Wenomir's ever had a gecko crawling on him, the inside of her hand feels a lot like that. She's smiling a little, and looks quite nervous despite her unnatural size and ill-fitting clothing.

    But once that respite has passed, something else is added to the mix as a sudden shadow appear overhead.

    If they look up, a huge three-headed creature with giant wings made up of fog darkening the skies. It, unlike the elementals, can actually make a sound, roaring loudly with all its three hydra-like heads as it swoops down towards them.

    Oh boy, now comes Laz's big chance! She takes a hand off her sword, adjusting her helmet before breaking into a sprint. Okay, so Calm Reed can't throw people hard enough, as she told us, and judging from her shockwave attack a moment ago, the monk doesn't sail that high when she jumps, either. That means Saint Laz better take this into her own hands, I think. Someone's gotta get airborne, and Ms. Mithar is looking awfully unimpressed (just kidding she's in a trance she doesn't look like anything) after the way Saint Lazarus handled those lava goons and let the monk do all the cool stunts, so it's time for the ghoul knight to step it up!

    She's got to time this just right, or she's liable to make a complete mess of herself; maybe even get launched right off the edge of the VIGIL skybase. She's not entirely sure if that would kill her or not, since the whole ghoul thing didn't come with an instruction manual, but based on her prior field experience, she's leaning towards a very strong 'oh yes, almost definitely' at the moment. Now, obviously some people would tell you that kind of risk is absolutely unconscionable in what is meant to be a harmless, largely inconsequential training exercise, but those people are completely one-hundred percent right Saint Lazarus what the hell are you doing?!

    Running as fast as she can without sustaining grievous muscle damage for doing so, trying to quickly align herself with the big boss's flightpath as it swoops down on them, she takes a deep breath and lifts up her arms, letting the air swirl about confusedly in her dead, useless lungs as she closes her eyes, jumps, and tries to bury her zweihander up to the hilt in the swooping avian creature coming directly at her. If this thing is as stupendously huge and counts as having as many arbitrary health points as I imagine it might, this strike is unlikely to even kill the thing. Have I mentioned already how terrible this plan was? Not even Magtok would make a plan like this one. Hell, the best case scenario is that it's just going to take her up into the air with it, clinging for dear life to her sword at several hundred feet up. Saint Lazarus, why is this your Plan A?!

    Wenomir shakes her hand firmly.

    "And since you've been brought to me, the skills you bring us must be of the physical sort."

    "She said she can climb on walls and is strong and quick, sir," the half-orc says.

    "I thought as much. A simple obstacle course and some practice sparring with our apprentices should demonstrate things clearly enough."

    [Outside the Base]

    Calm Reed rushes to meet the beast head-on, but even with her trained athleticism she's not going to reach the monster before St. Lazarus enacts her daring maneuver. The monk isn't sure what the knight is attempting, but she can't deny her courage.

    Makuro nods when the skills she listed are recounted to Wenomir. "Um, I can't remember using any weaponry, and given my... Enhancements... I would prefer to use hands and feet." Though she's not had any lessons with those either, she has a lot of reach and she's strong enough she's worried about damaging any weaponry she'd use. She probably couldn't lift a car, but she might be able to rip a door off one, or otherwise do pretty severe damage to one.

    "I caused it?"
    Renee asks, momentarily confused before recalling all that had happened. "Ah, the shotgun thing. Please, accept my apologies. I had to take control of the situation for a bit and it was all I could think of on short notice." She begs as she slips inside to head to the kitchen to make a pot of tea. She seems to know where it's at despite not having been there. "Oh, right. You two can go now." Renee asks of the two guards, giving a gentle shooing motion with a hand as she puts on a kettle. "Unless you want tea too that is. Then please, stay, it is the least I can do." She remarks before looking over her shoulder at Blanche. "And I don't have a phone, actually. But I suppose I could leave some other form of contact for you if that works. I really ought to pick one up at some point soon but I'm a bit too used to being able to communicate mentally."

    Wenomir nods, and claps his hands. The adventurers stop sparring and turn to look at him.

    "I need three of you to spar with our new candidate. Step forward if you're willing."

    Three people do step forward. A dark-skinned human girl in mail armor, with a scimitar and round shield, a tattooed elf man with a short spear and dagger and a stocky halfling lad with a glaive.

    "Choose your first opponent and show me what you can do."

    [Barracks]

    Unfortunately, the guards become rather concerned once it's clear Renee isn't going to just go away.

    "Excuse me?" one of them asks.

    "Blanche, is this person your guest or do we need to escort her off the island?"

    Blanche straightens a little, eyes widening briefly as her ears perk up. She was a little taken aback that Renee had witnessed her little... panic attack, for lack of better term. She didn't expect that Renee had noticed much of anyone's reaction, frankly; she was probably busy making her announcement, after all! "...Yes, that. It's-"

    But then, Renee pushes past her, further throwing Blanche off her guard. "H-hey, what the hell are you doing?" She demands after a stunned moment, trying to push away confusion with assertiveness and following the woman into the kitchen. But rather than force her out or continue to demand for her to leave, the catgirl simply looks on with annoyed confusion.

    "I can usually be found here, you can just leave a letter or something if I'm not, and I can provide a phone number for when you have access to that." The woman proposes with arms crossed, before continuing with a slightly more passive-aggressive tone; "But if you're going to barge in and make yourself at home, you could at least tell me who the hell you are."

    Renee doesn't interrupt her team making, but she does at least cast a curious glance at Blanche before turning to the guards. "She doesn't quite know it yet it seems, but this is pretty much a family moment." Renee vaguely explains before looking at Blanche with a somewhat amused curve to her smiling lips. "I'm the daughter of the guy your mother seems to be banging." She says plainly without any regard for eavesdroppers. "So, cup of tea or am I still going to be told to leave?" She asks.

    Makuro looks the three adventurers over, thinking about it. The halfling's short, but his glaive makes up for that, and the girl is armoured which might make things tricky. She's also the most likely to have a short reach, but the armour's putting her off a little. The elf has a spear, which also makes up for his shorter arms, but it's quite short, so... "I... I pick the spearman." She looks around as she approaches, to see what the environment is like. Hopefully it's one she can use her unusual abilities in, but it's probably quite a bland space.

    ...what.

    Blanche is only further taken aback and baffled by this apparent revelation - and though she does an adequate job of hiding it, she can't stop the shock from briefly consuming her expression, before it shifts to simply tainting a more skeptical and hardened look. This didn't sound right, she was pretty sure her mom wasn't even in the Nexus! Then again, they hadn't talked in a while, so it was a possibility... a very unlikely possibility that she very much doubted was true, but possible enough that the idea would certainly linger in the back of her mind for a little while after everything here is said and done.

    But in the meantime, she supposed she was probably stuck with Renee for the time being; she had a favor to call in someday, and it wouldn't do to alienate this strange visitor if she ever had to rely upon her in the future. So for now, Blanche would just humor her. "...I guess I can live with you staying a little while longer." She finally responds, giving the guards a wave of dismissal. "You two should return to your posts, I can deal with it if there is a problem."

    The elf uses his spear to attack, while the other one performs magic. He causes roots and rocks to attack and distract Makuro, then tries to close in with his spear. He's not wearing much armor and his spear is short, so he relies on the distraction to deliver a telling (as far as it can be in a sparring match) blow.

    I should remind you that they are actually on a field below the base just in case either of them somehow managed to launch themselves off it.

    Either way, Laz at the very least get the advantage of surprise when she makes that leap of faith.
    So much so that she actually managed to impale it as it didn't even slow down as it came swooping down. But, as point out, while the sword is now lodged deep within the creatures lower abdomen, causing a fit of rage as it seem to simulate pain.

    A long tail, black as coal, comes around and attempts to snatch away one of Laz's ribbons while the creature just continues flying forward, its thread heads roaring loudly as they spew ash and dust around them, creating a huge cloud that sharply limits visibility around the creature. This might even be dangerous to breath in too much of, which could be a problem for Calm Reed.

    Speaking of the monk, she is being assaulted by two of the earthbond elementals, and it looks like more of them are being conjured.

    Makuro's got quick reflexes, and excellent balance. She manages to dodge, block or redirect the spear quite regularly, lashing out with her fists and feet when she sees the opportunity- but she's got no formal martial arts training, and her attacks are telegraphed- even if they are also surprisingly fast, but still humanely possible. She adjusts her weight when the ground shifts beneath her and stays well-balanced until the weeds start pulling her out of position and distracting her more firmly and letting him get some good blows in.

    A loss, one showing the limits of her untrained, supernaturally enhanced physique- her speed is above human norm, her strength is within human bounds but not within human bounds for her apparent physique, her reflexes are really good and she's bruised but no more than that.

    Wenomir watches the battle in silence. He nods when the match is over and congratulates the elf with a gesture. If he has comments for Makuro, he saves them for now.

    "Rest, get any medical attention you need and pick your next opponent," he tells her.

    "I am bruised, nothing more. I do not need a doctor; they no longer hurt." She's still not used to magic, and the idea of magically healing away the bruises hasn't occurred to her. They are only bruises, nothing serious; not even very big bruises at that.

    She looks at the other two, and decides on the human with the scimitar for her next bout.

    The human with the scimitar is fighting far more decisively. She goes shield-first and makes probing attacks with her scimitar. Eventually, she'll wait for Makuro to strike her shield, which will emit a brief, bright burst of light. The warrior will then advance, trying to take advantage of any distraction. It'll take her some time, though, so Makuro might be able to win before that happens.

    Makuro's quick and tries to bypass the shield, rather than strike it directly. She'll drop down and kick a leg low and quick, to try to trip the human. If that doesn't work, she's going to try hitting the shield with all her might to knock the human over, and she's strong. She's quick to recover from each burst of light, which is a little surprising given her enhanced night vision, so she's not distracted long enough to provide much advantage. Makuro's trying to knock the human over, either by a trip or a blow to the shield. She's hitting really hard; she's got a strength enhancement and could dent a car door.

    Makuro probably gets a win, but it's not certain; if she manages to knock the scimitar-girl down, she's got things handled. If not, it's probably down to endurance, and Makuro isn't good at endurance.

    Makuro does manage to knock the woman over. She was counting on the burst of light distracting her and when it didn't work she succumbs to Makuro's superior strength. All that's left for Makuro is to fight the halfling once she's recovered.

    If there's one thing Laz is good at, it's not knowing when to let go and stop being incredibly stupid. She decides that as dangerous as dangling from her sword might be, which is still embedded in a giant magma dragon's abdomen, there are perhaps even stupider, more reckless things she could be doing instead. When the tail tries to assail her and her ribbons, she lets go of her sword and plummets towards the ground. She was trying to grab the tail and ride that instead, but completely mistimed her lunge, so now she's dropping out of the sky.

    After a few moments to catch her breath and help the other woman to her feet (it's only polite to help people up after you knock them over, after all), Makuro decides she's ready for the final fight. The halfling's seen how she fights, too, but I don't know if that helps him much.

    Calm Reed doesn't slow down one bit when the elementals appear and tries to simply barrel into them while running at full tilt. She then proceeds to assault them with a fluid, hypnotic pattern of strikes that seek the smallest cracks and weaknesses before pounding at them mercilessly, like water beating down a wall. Should it succeed, she'll try to finish them off with a single, straight punch for each of them, before continuing towards St. Lazarus. She'll try to avoid any further elementals by blocking and redirecting their attacks or simply powering through.

    [Training Grounds]

    The halfling will turn out to be a defensive fighter. He tries to keep Makuro at the reach of his halberd, trying to poke and sweep at her as she attacks, backing away from her with subtle footwork. In order to win she'll need to get within his reach where the length of his weapon will work against him.

    This is why Makuro saved him for last. His halberd is tricky. Makuro's going to try being sneaky. She's got sticky hands and feet, when she wants them to be. She's going to try slapping the side of the halberd's blade and sticking her hand to it with her gecko-grip power, so she can try manipulating it out of the way to get close. If that doesn't work- and it won't work if it's got any form of enchantment, magic or other supernatural ability affecting it already- she's almost certainly going to lose. She's contemplated trying to surprise him by jumping over him, but if she miscalculates she lands on a spear-point, and that won't be fun. She's agile enough that she's not easily caught by the jabs or sweeps, but can't really do much to get past it either.

    The halfling's halberd isn't magical and he wasn't expecting such a trick. He's surprised and Maukuro will be able to yank the spear off to the side if she wants.

    ((Just to be clear, she's hitting the side of the axe part, the flat of the blade there as that's large enough for her to get a reasonable full-hand lock on.))

    In that case, Makuro's able to manipulate the halberd just enough with her enhanced strength to either disarm him or get too close for him to hit her with it (and possibly pick him up). He might have a last-minute trick up his sleeve, though, such as a dagger or something. But I think she's possibly won this, much to her surprise.

    The halfling does have a dagger, for precisely this occasion. Once Makuro gets close, he'll try to stab her with it. So even if she overpowered him, she might take another bruise.

    Yep, that's another bruise, and she'll let go after she's stabbed. She'll try kicking him then, possibly a little too hard- she's still not used to her strength. She'll be instantly apologetic if he goes flying, and depending on where the bruise is, she might have just 'lost', as it might correspond to a fatal wound, since it's on the inside of her wrist.

    "What? Don't believe me?"
    Renee asks, sounding curious and a bit skeptical. "You smell pretty close to whomever the chick is that's rubbed up all over him. Not that I'm here to shame you or her or anyone really." She clarifies as she starts preparing her tea with way too many lumps of sugar. She'll even prepare a second cup for Junior as well as a third for Blanche. "And that raises another thing. Why is it that for all the stealth and magic coverage and everything, everyone always forgets their scent? Seriously, it gets overlooked all the time. Do they seriously expect only bloodhounds to be able to catch a whiff? Some of us get made with strong senses of smell for a reason, you know."

    "Please, stop talking about my mom." The rather discomforted catgirl states more than requests, though not quite demands, shivering as a somewhat unpleasant mental image is evoked and then hastily banished. Eugh, she did not want to think about her mother cuddling someone. Thankfully, Renee provides another topic to think about.

    Picking up her own cup and taking a sip before frowning, setting it down and opening the fridge to grab a container of creamer. "Probably just a focus on evading other humans or the average humanoid types." She comments, stirring some of the substance in. "Men, elves, orcs, and so on... their keenest senses are all sight and sound, so that's what people focus on." She frowns. "Besides, if you're not engaged in infiltration but trying to avoid detection in the heat of combat, scent is usually the last sense anyone's going to focus on using."

    Wenomir claps his hands to signal that the bout is over.

    "Let's call this one a draw," he says. "One victory, one loss, one draw. Not too bad. With enough training, you might go far."

    "The man with his root and rock tricks were tricky. As was the short one's halberd. I... Did not think my loss would be against the person I lost against." Makuro hasn't been here very long, and whilst she knows not everyone here is a human, she doesn't know who. The elf's got pointy ears; but Makuro's considerably less human than that in appearance, but she'd still call herself a human.
