A Beastly Experiment

((Courser from → Rachel's Home))

As Courser arrived in the slightly more distant and darker regions of Hades' uncontrolled network, the heat washed over him and he stretched, spritzing himself with a fresh wash of clean water in an effort to keep cool. Why had they chosen this place again?

“Okay, I'm in, Jen. What's the plan?” He kicked off on a rising water current, letting it hiss and steam on the scorching ground as he wove a brief circle around his landing point, deciding which way to go. Jenny answered in his ear a moment later, like she was reading from a checklist.

“Ah, we're jacked into the Hades rogue net, and you're going to go busting for the bounty you picked up. We need to find a place where the viruses are particularly think and dense, and keep coming, and once we find somewhere like that, you're going to go all shark mode, and fight them.” She sounded nervous. Surprisingly, Courser realised, more nervous than he felt, now. He knew that Rach and Nara were on the line with them, watching over whatever he got himself into, and knowing that they were gave him a lot of comfort, all things considered.

“Okay... that doesn't sound too bad.”
“I mean, we need you to see how much of its power you can make use of, safely. And Rachel is tied in too, and Nara, so we can help if anything goes wrong.” She sounded like she was reassuring herself as much as him, but he wasn't about to mention it. They all needed to be careful. He picked a direction and surfed forward, letting his path curve slowly back and forth as he started to explore.

“I can do that, Jen, don't worry. This will all go great, and I'll be tucking the dragon under my belt by tonight as well, just you watch.”
“Courser! Don't you...” He laughed and Jenny fell into a pouting silence at his joke. He was joking, wasn't he? He sure hoped it was a joke.

((Courser (Decoy and TrapMaster), Buffy Bounty, Ready for Battle 1))
Making his way into the sliiiiightly dilapidated network, Courseman would find himself on a metal lined terrain warped from the hellish heat that surrounded him with black and charred points here and there, with a scant few patches of other terrain...two patches of charcoal-based Coal terrain, one of partially glassed Sand. The former nearby to his left and just back behind him...the latter towards the edge of the area on the right. But before he could push forwards, a silent klaxon began to go off, viruses quickly closing in on Courser's position.

Coming down from the sky, a massive ball of dark metal smashing onto the floor near the navi, a quartet of spindly spider-like legs coming from the top of the sphere and a hammer forming behind it as it's legs clacked loudly on the warped and burnt metal, whilst the Buffy-F he had been searching for would flutter in, the mechanical puffer fish-like virus fluttering about, bubbles on it's comically enlarged lips. All the while, a large amount of what could only be called "Shadows" in various viral shapes would begin to enclose upon the field, trapping Courser in...or were they entrapped with him? Either way, a hooded virus began to hop into the field half-heartedly, a massive staff in hand, as it sat down on the sandy patch with what could only be called a yawn emanating from the hood. A rickety stove with eyes beginning to clamber in, barely put together and ready to belch flame at Courser...and a low to the ground humanoid virus with tribal markings across it's entire armored body, mask on it's face with a deep glower and a pair of heavy cleavers, ready to cut through the navi's defenses.

He was trapped, viruses practically surrounding him for the time being...if he fought, he could likely thin out their numbers enough to escape...but did he WANT to is the issue...perhaps the beast within would like a feast for it's first battle? Or did it's hunger not grow enough to keep him there for long?

MonoSwordinMonoSwordin (MonoSword)

MonoSword are distant cousins of Swordy, but have evolved further in an attempt become more a threat. They attack by teleporting in front of their target, and slashing with their namesake before returning to their original position. Their blades are sturdier than most, and can cut through things regular ones cannot, such as shields. Their bulky armor also gives them above average stamina, but it weighs them down to the point where they do not move or dodge, aside from attacking. Despite it lacking any sort of defense that would bestow such a weakness, they ironically take additional damage from Break attribute attacks.

Area: Netopia, Yoka, Hades Isle

HP: 210
Attack Damage/Effect: 50 Null + Break + Slashing + Wide Attack
Attack Accuracy: C
Attack Description: Delivers an armor cutting slash.

Possible Rewards (Per Virus): BreakSword, Zenny
Special: Break Weakness: Attacks with the Break attribute deal +100% Source damage to this virus, as though hitting an elemental weakness.
Special: Moves by teleporting. This is not treated as a formal Teleport, and does not confer any bonuses.
: 210 HP (Coal) (To the left of Courseman)
RavagerRavager (Raider)

A large black sphere, with 4 mechanical, spider-like legs. It attacks by forming a large hammer atop its head/body, then somehow swinging it without any apparent body motion.
Raider does two things: it draws near, and attacks. In a battle, this is done by Feinting to get close to its target without completely sacrificing self-preservation, then smacking them hard with a hammer. It always alternates between these two, and almost never strays for this pattern: however, if it is completely incapable of harming any enemies for some reason, it will dodge to buy time for the enemy to become vulnerable. Which action it starts with depends on its initial position, as it will attack if it's already close, without bothering to feint.

Area: Netopia, Hades Isle, NetVegas

HP: 210
Attack Damage/Effect: 80 Null + Break + Impact / 50 Null + Drop Attack

-- Rogue Battle 1 Ready? Start!! --
Courser kept a light spray of fresh water about himself as he surfed on, listening to the hissing fizzle of his water eddy as it coasted across scorching rock and metal, and onto burning sand. The head was oppressive, and his thoughts drifted back to his last Hades excursions, in a strangely more innocent time, only a few months prior.

He blinked and skidded on his water current, curving to a halt as he began to notice the encroaching presence all around him. Further back, the looming threat of more viruses drawn to his incursion gave him enough pause to look around slowly.

“Alright... Guess we're doing this here then...” He let his wave whips uncoil as he took a stance, eyeing up the different foes, then ducked on shoulder slightly at a lower angle. From the shadow of his motion, courser drew one of the whips back up and in to form a solid wall of rushing water spreading out from his fist while the mist rose and encircled him protectively, but as he did a shadow split off from him, lunging out in a fast, diving movement. It took form as another courser, but not quite the same; it had grey skin, and its face was partially obscured by a point-nosed shark skull, while a skeletal rib cage encircled its chest and joined the exposed spinal column of bone ridges down its back. The shark-courser snarled as in leapt more than ran, streaking through the air jagged teeth first towards the ravager virus directly ahead.

In the midst of the aggressive display, Courser himself took a breath and reached inward, pulling on the threads of power that weren't quite a part of him. He felt it rise again, feeding into him and sending ripples of energy through his form. With it, an awareness – each virus stood out in his senses all the more keenly than before, like small glowing beacons of data that he could feel even with his eyes closed. There came hunger, and wrath, too, more than before when they'd been somewhere safe. The physical change passed over him in a wave, and though it left his body mostly the same – the sharkskin and bone motifs restricted to his coat and his other clothes, mostly, Courser could still feel its influence over him; the hunger was his hunger; the wrath, his wrath.

As he felt the swell of power and sensation flood him Courser stood straight in his combat stance, arching back enough to throw his hands wide.

“Come on then!!” The watery shield and his other wave whip were temporarily thrown aside as a storm of water bolts erupted from his body, drenching the field in a scatter-blast that now carried far more density, and more power, than his usual, more playful shots. The wild explosion of jet-stream bolts continued to harry the viruses around him for a moment or two until courser pulled his arms back in, gritting his now zig-zagging teeth and taking a breath. Stay sensible; he had a plan, stick to it and stay in control. He held the power in check, letting it fill him without running wild, and instead reached down to his belt, into one side of his coat, to produce the silver-worked revolver that had become one of his favourites. As he stood again his free hand fanned out, half circling the area as he pulled the trigger three times, aiming each in turn at the sword-wielder, the hammer-swinger and the staff-waver. Who needed class balance when you had guns? Each shot blasted cracks in the ground all around him, regardless of whether he hit his foes or not. And as courser felt the rush of the sudden violence, water began to rise, seeping up from the torn ground in a rapidly encroaching flood. He heard someone laughing; it was his voice.

The water rose, first a film across the ground, turning the sand to sludge and hissing across the panels, before drowning them in a swiftly curtailed quench. Then it was around Coursers ankles, then his knees. Cracks burst as he let the threads of power within him reach out and reshape the world around him to the way it should be; the beast knew what its domain was like, and as the battlefield drowned, it made it right. Soon the would seemed engulfed in deep, dark water. External to the battle, seen from a distance, it might only cover a moderate range, but for those poor souls within the sphere of ocean, it looked like it stretched on for ever in ever direction, fading into water darkness.

Down below, the ground had become a strewn graveyard of the hulks of rotted ships, and just as mammoth in size, the aged and algae-covered bones of great sea leviathans, jutting up from the silt. The essence of the creature flowed through Courser, and he felt his body ripple in response to the shift in the terrain; a slight translucency, a little bit more watery, if that were even possible. All around him, swirls of water current circled and spiralled, surrounding his form in the broken and scattered detritus of the ocean bone yard; small chunks of barnacled wood and broken bones formed a veritable shell of constantly moving debris as he floated in the middle of it all

“You're in My Ocean! My Grave. Your Grave!!” His voice was a growl as he cast around for viruses to tear apart. His eyes found some. “You. Tear apart and drown!” His free hand clenched, then lifted upwards, and pointed towards several of the remaining targets, as, just below him and to one side, a shift in the wreckage of wood and bones gave rise to a sudden burst – a structure jutted up from the sea floor, made now of fashioned bone and cracked with age, yet still recognisable as the needle turret Courser often used. Now it creaked in the water and craned its muzzle, firing pressurised, harpoon-like bone lances up into the waters above, aiming its volley of shots at three of the now ocean-bound viruses. Each shot trailed bubbles as it lanced through the water, and the attacks kicked up silt and murk that swirled around the bony protrusion, protecting it.

Courser focused himself, letting the feeling grow as each violent act seemed to fuel the beast within. He still had it; he could draw more power still. He was still in control. Mostly. He looked about through the deep ocean and assessed his targets.

The viruses stared down at Courseman, a pregnant pause in the air as they watched him and he watched them back...unfurling his whips, combat started as his usual protections rose up...shield, casing and barrier in short order, his shadow launching itself and rapidly going after whatever was in it's way, the Ravager was quick to swing down it's massive hammer with a loud, ringing echo across the field thinking the clone was real, not only missing it's attack, but sending the hammer flying into the air as a veritable splinter of metal shards cascaded into the air. The hammer that had been launched, however, landing waaaaay behind the real Courser with a clatter and dispersal of junk data as the Metrod swiftly made it's way towards the Heater virus, sliding in behind the creature to give itself a meat-shield from the navi's attacks.

Though, all the viruses in the battle, and the ones surrounding the area, would soon regret attacking the navi. Reaching for the power he forcefully claimed for himself in Sharo, the navi underwent his metamorphosis...and with it, a sudden chill up the backs of every virus present. Lashing out across the field with his own power, each virus getting hit at least twice in his attacks (120!, 45, 90!, 60!, +315 BSP), the viruses would step back in unison, almost...afraid...even the shadows recognized the power Courser had taken for himself, but they continued on regardless as the Buffy spat out a bubble in retaliation, sending it bounding in Courser's direction...but it managed to bounce JUST above him in the madness that ensued, but would be back for another attempt on the navi's life. The MonoSwordin, however, would quickly jump from sight and using it's massive butcher's cleavers would make another attempt on Courser's life...or at least, the one that LOOKED like Courser, as it landed with a loud clang against his clone and inexplicably missing as it struggled to pull the cleavers out of the metal.

As things continued, he pulled the heavy artillery out, explosions rocketing through the field as his beastly magnum shots rang out, each hitting it's mark, absolutely destroying the Swordin and gravely wounding his other two targets without a single moment's hesitation (+405 BSP). The Metrod would fire back with it's own explosive ordinance in turn, waving it's staff about behind the Heater, a multitude of meteors would begin to rain down upon the field...and with it, the absolute annihilation of Courser...'s clone, multiple meteors embedded in where the clone stood before disappearing entirely, causing the Metrod to smash it's rod on the ground in frustration as the Heater belched flames at the navi, engulfing him and ripping away his barrier, whilst the Buffy tried again to attack, even with his best efforts, this bubble managed to hit, exploding on his casing and destroying it entirely, from being superheated on the nearby coals.

Quickly countering, before he could be struck again, Courser drew up the power of the beast itself through his vassal...a roiling torrent of water immediately drowning out the entirety of the visible field, shadows shuddering as they held back the roiling waves from escaping the area they "partitioned" off from the rest of the network. A new casing and a strange effect running along Courser's form as both drew from the power of the seas themselves, a deep dark abyss below navi and viruses, just barely contained within the sphere of this fight. Viruses flailed about as their bodies began to hiss, their forms beginning to slowly disappear as fire and water didn't mix well with one another. And whilst they were preoccupied with being deleted inside and out, flames snuffed like a candle, the familiar turret made out of hewn bone began to rise from the depths...firing upon everything within it's pervew, though a couple shots missed, the Heater and the Buffy would find themselves gone as the hewn harpoons ripped through their bodies (40, 80, 40, 160 BSP). Scared, and more importantly having lost it's meat-shield, the Metrod would quickly move, attempting to climb it in a futile attempt to get out of the water. The Ravager, however, was unsure how to proceed, it's massive spindly legs trying to find a proper way to escape deletion...but finding no place to escape to, it lifted another hammer and attempted to slam it against Courser...missing entirely as the hammer would go flying off into the distance and splash into the sea, sinking deep down below with a really pathetic bloop.

Finally, as the shadows of the viruses conversed amongst themselves in an attempt to keep calm, a pair of viruses that could fly began to make their way onto the field for Courser's Squalo's hunger to be sated with, one of the Megalian family in a higher powered aura than he was used to seeing, as a blood-red Fishy virus began to float in, slowly beginning to line up with him on the opposite side of Courser from the Megalian and a massive metal sphere with a face carved into it with a brilliant icy blue finish. But Courser also had a problem...that bubble that missed him was beginning to encroach upon him again...
