● Nanjing - Secluded Alleyway ●

The occasional torch or lantern dimly lighted the streets, but they were empty save for stray animals and wandering fools. Rudy didn't know which category he would put himself in. He wasn't sure if he'd call himself a fool or a stray. The steep and beautifully carved cobblestone streets had once been something to marvel at, as would be the warm-colored architecture of the buildings, if not for the recent months of chaos in the city, the streets and buildings now caked in burns and grime. Rudy had only been here for part of it, but it wasn't his business, his only genuine concern looking to further himself as a Marine. He had managed to scrounge some beli from turning in some bounties dueling in the streets, but quickly his funds had left him.

Now Rudeus followed the scent of sweat and smoke, making his way down the lesser-known paths only criminals used. He should have guessed that he would not be the only one traversing the back alleys, turning a corner to come face to face with a burly man who was standing over a bloodied corpse. Rudeus did not need to guess what had happened. The man held a dripping knife and had the look of a killer. He turned as soon as he saw Rudeus' shadow.

"Oi, what do we got ourselves here?" the criminal said, grinning. He had merely half of his teeth left, judging by the look of it. Then he chimed in again, this time speaking up. "You look like a boy of money. Want to share some of that love?"

"Just out for a walk tonight, same as you," Rudy replied, raising his hands and curling them into fists.

"Fancy clothes you got there. Mind if I take them off of you?" another thug offered, stepping forward. Rudeus should have guessed. Even with the idle threat of his fighting stance, these thugs were far too desperate to care. One drew a rusty sword, and the other with the knife reached into his back pocket and grabbed a long knife. Rudy stepped back and readied his assault, warily backing up until he had the room to maneuver. Haphazardly, the thugs got on either side of him, and they didn't even need to signal one another. Rudeus guessed they had been killing together for a long time. They only needed their eyes to mark their attack.

The first thug attacked Rudy with a thrust of his rusty sword. The marine ducked the blow and sidestepped the other attack he knew was coming from his flank, turning, partially transforming his legs into talons. The man with the daggers, confident in victory, was suddenly slashed across the face, claws biting into his eyes and the bridge of his nose as his visage was split in half. He stumbled into his partner, suddenly dropping the daggers.

"My eyes! My eyes!" he screamed in horror. Rudeus cut his hamstrings next, and he fell to the ground. The one that his comrade had tackled had stumbled and nearly tripped. Rudy didn't give him time to react, stepping on the fallen man for support and cutting the remaining man in the stomach, spilling entrails.
"Please!" the eyeless man begged, unable to see what was happening but hearing the death groans of his friend. Rudeus forcefully grabbed the man's neck, silencing his pleas and choking his breath away.

In the distance, he heard shouts from a crowd. He didn't feel like dragging the bloody half-dead bodies of the thugs through the crowd; thus, he resorted to sending out a signal flare. He hoped nearby Marines would notice the flare and give him credit for the restraints. With a quick cleaning of his shoes on one of the men's shirts, he moved on, making it to the edge of the alley and peering out into the street. He saw nothing worth of excitement.
"Bummer.." Rudeus said, speaking to no one in particular.

He stopped for a moment, recalling something he'd found in his patrols, a sewer he had seen and even gone into a few nights ago, where criminals sometimes congregated. He has forgotten how close they were to the tourist malls and other attractions.

He moved swiftly, silver hair whipping as he turned and gauged his current location more than once before finding the sewers. It was a low inlet that fed into a hole just big enough to duck into. Grabbing the ledge that dropped down, he hopped into the ankle-deep water and then gazed into the hole.

"What?" he mouthed as he suddenly saw the light within the tunnel system. He had never been here at the dead of night, he realized. He would not have seen it any other time of day. Gingerly, he began to move, climbing down the hole, the sewage along the metal sticking to his hands, but he had gotten used to such grime years ago. He plopped into the water, still quite shallow, and moved slowly, his dark features and ruddy clothing keeping him concealed in the darkness.

He began to hear noises. A woman speaking and men laughing until screams and yells were heard, along with the hooting of multiple voices Rudeus concluded it was criminals when he turned the corner and a woman being strangled. It had to be a woman, as he could see her figure even under the thick clothing. There were torn bodies beside her, and strong hands were gripping her neck as she feebly grasped, trying to ply the fingers off.

Something in him began to tear at his mind, a long-ago remnant of his life on the experiment lab. An old call to help the victims instead of being a bystander, perhaps? Maybe he wished to wash some of the blood off of his ledger. Or maybe Rudeus wanted to maim the criminal who stood by metal bars. But he didn't utter a single word, and in a flick of an instant, Rudy was out of the water and on solid ground, a mere few paces away from the woman who seemed to be weakening in her struggles.

The criminal performing the heinous act didn't see Rudeus until talons were already cleaving through his forearms, hacking them to the bone and soaking the stone floor in his blood. He screamed bloodily, his cries echoing off the dungeon walls, cries that turned to wrathful whimpers. Rudeus kept the woman from hitting the floor, her hat falling off to reveal a beautiful face and long dark hair. She gasped for air audibly.

"Are you ok?" Rudy asked her, patting her back. He kept cautious of the woman, as he had seen many women play victim before attacking unexpectedly. "Why are you here?"

"You!" a strong voice intoned.

The Marine turned and saw a warrior clad in mail, hair golden with silver streaks, and a crowd of peasants with fierce eyes spilling down the stairway. The warrior pointed his sword at Rudeus and the woman. "We have found Evelyn! Kill her and the filthy protector!"

Time seemed to slow, and Rudeus looked down to the woman, and his throat tightened. He did recognize her; he had seen her from afar weeks ago, as she lounged on her balcony and taunted protesters in the streets. If he wasn't a Marine, he perhaps could've killed her or at least kidnapped the wealthy woman and asked for ransom for money that he desperately needed. But instead, he had saved her.

"Quite the popular lady you are in this wretched city," he spoke. He cursed himself and this entire city and realized he had little choice in what to do. Rudeus grabbed her hand and pulled her up, yanking her away from the mob that was now hot on their heels. "Come with me if you want to keep breathing!" he shouted at her.

The woman in Rudy's grasp, named Evelyn, gasped lungfuls of air as the Marine ran. Rudeus wasn't sure what was going through her mind at the moment, but he could tell it wasn't anything pleasant. She frowned at his clothing baked with blood and grime and then remained frightened from his partial phoenix transformation.

Rudeus carried her towards a cracked channel where the waste from the city's open barracks flowed. Evelyn was in no position to argue as the smell made her half gag; her expressions made Rudeus laugh for a moment. He would prefer to fly; however, his flight was restricted in the sewers of Nanjing. As they turned, Rudeus looked back over his shoulder and shouted another word of expletives as the mob got closer. Quickly, he kicked the walls in the tunnel, dislodging the stone slabs that held up the tunnel. It was a simple tactic to slow down the men behind him. The stone slabs fell, blocking the pathway, but the stones shattered almost immediately as the armored leader charged into it, but it did stop his progress for a half second. Dozens of bodies crashed into him, and the front rank of the mob collapsed in a heap. Those behind charged forward, unaware of the collapsing tunnel and unable to halt their progress. The whole group became a mass of tangled bodies as stone slabs buried them.

Without a backward glance, Rudeus fled into the darkness of the sewer; his feet splashed up a spray of stinking waste as he flew down the low tunnel. It twisted and turned, but Rudeus was confident on the way out. Within a minute, Rudeus and Evelyn burst into a small exit where smaller tributaries of wastewater ran together into a single river, leading the way outside.​

"We should be safe enough here, whoever you are," Evelyn said, her hand rested on her chest. Whoever this woman was, Rudeus doubted this would be the end of it.

"I'm a Marine." He told her as he wiped the grime and blood off his clothes that covered the insignia of the World Government. "Name is Rudeus, but you can call me Rudy," he said, winking. Rudeus gave her figure a brief glance; even in her current outfit, which concealed her features, she was undeniably gorgeous. It was just his luck. The first beautiful woman's company in months, and she was the one that now threatened his life with her presence. Then again, it was his fault. He should've just become a doctor instead of a Marine.

He didn't make an effort to tell her he knew who she was; Rudeus wanted to see if she would lie.

"I'm sure you have to know because of the circumstances, but my father is a prominent merchant here in Kano Country and is a part of the coalition of Merchants. A public group that tussles with the government for lesser restrictions. Those men back there are hired muscle to pressure the government to lower the taxes on imported and exported goods." Evelyn paused to clear her throat and eyed Rudeus strangely, she could tell he was focused on her, but it didn't appear he comprehended the information spoken to him. She cleared her throat once again, putting an emphasis to get his attention.

"This is a political affair; it doesn't matter to me. I am just here to collect a check from the Navy," spoke Rudeus nonchalantly, beginning to walk away from Evelyn. This simply wasn't described in his job description, preventing a conspiracy to lower taxes? Nope. Not for him.

Trickster extraordinaire, Loki purses out a whistle, as he struts through Songshan Martial Arts Academy's dojo. Another behemoth of a structure whose doors, ordained with the school’s insignia, comically dwarfed his 6’5 frame. Its chrome matte interior had been populated by several students. All blend of new and familiar faces that he had seen in the past couple sessions. The day’s activities had called for a light sparring session. Yet, deep within his psyche he senses the room’s palpable and unreserved intentions for victory.


At least he surmised so as he surveys the room and watches effervescent pairs of practioners disperse. Glancing and surveying potential partners, he finds the available pool wanting. That was until his eyes settled on the character to his immediate right. Spurred by part whim and instinct, the provisional Marine would find himself meandering past students. Once he was within hearing distance, he begun to parlay his intentions “You got time to spar? I’ll make it worth your while” his manner direct, succinct and rife of the confidence of a seasoned veteran.

Loki giggled and smirked slyly as he observed the opponent's demeanor and mulled over his current circumstance. The execution of Osiris had been a catastrophic letdown. Despite the presence of the Fleet Admiral, three Admiral candidates and the revered Greatest of All Time, the opposition had held their own. From the rumors' circulating around the marine bases, the alleged Big Three had been spectacular flops. Zet, the current occupant of the Most Wanted mantle had mounted an unexpected appearance. If ever there'd been question of his ability to attract powerful subordinates, such doubts had been laid to rest.

As joining the notorious criminal had been his trusted commanders Famine and War. It was the efforts of these two that the so called future of the Marines had been held bay. The nature of their bouts had been sidelined and instead public narrative had shifted to questioning Hades and Poseidon's capabilities or lack thereof. Of even greater embarrassment had been the suggestion that Fleet Admiral Kronos had been spotted scampering across Gray Terminal. As nothing more than a cornered prey fighting desperately to survive against a predator - Isis.


With their superiors presumed to have been in such shambolic state Loki had felt slight reprieve from his own performance. Despite the difference in power he had, at the very least created conditions that ensured civilian safety. Be it by quelling the destruction his superiors wrought or besting the random threats that wandered about. In the aftermath of his loss he'd even inquired on the identity of the swordsman that had defeated him. Senji Muramasa. He bored the name through his skull and swore vengeance. However, for now he needed to sharpen his tools. The shockwaves from Fishman Karate were dull and he'd do whatever it took to give them an edge.



NPC Response: Sakura Kotomaru looked at Loki with a dumbfounded look. He indeed asked for a spar, however failed to commence any sort of action? Annoyed, she asked the marine if he suddenly lost his will to fight? Even going so far to mock his position in the marines, she added the remark that this may be why the marines were currently being wiped by the surging piracy.

Impatience stewed across Loki's opponent as time lumbered on between them. As he stood observing their demeanor, curiosity strummed at his psyche. The opponent's physical development with its toned muscles and robust features spoke to their masculinity. However, their delicate facial features and overall style had a feminine touch that attracted Loki towards her. The fish-man's fascination towards this mysterious creature wasn't placed on him. If anything the opponent had taken to pre-emptively launching a verbal assault.


No sooner had she started than did Loki slap his hands and smile with supreme excitement. "
Aaah. You're a bitch!!" he roared. It brought him great satisfaction to both determine her gender and personality in one sweep. "What you mentioned is true. Marines are struggling as me, myself and I lack the necessary mettle." Loki palmed his forehead theatrically, mocking his opponent and equally basking in self importance. Yet, his flamboyance soon vanished and his face soured as her weighed her words, "Though, I am grateful across the world there exists dojo's such as this. In which strong characters reside but lack the conviction to step outside their bubble. Instead berating those who don't subscribe to their misconceptions."

With the words delivered Loki mellowed and assumed a fighting stance. Without awaiting further discussion nor a response, the Fishman practitioner lashed forward at the Hasshoken master, intent on serious harm. Given the short range distance between the two, Loki had used his arms movement to condense water bubbles on his first [Support]. Aligning their accumulation to transpire long before he begun unleashing a flurry of punches [7 DMG]. In keeping with the dojo's stylistic teachings he was focused on demonstrating the power behind his shockwaves [Attack]. "Time to show you and your school whose daddy" he'd chime playfully should he prove successful.

This technique belongs to the Hasshoken Martial Art she posseses which has the Keywords: Trample ( Ignores Half Damage Shaving and Half Blocking Damage ), Exert ( Due to Sig.

At the expense of finesse, the Fishman had proceeded to demonstrate might in a bid to mentally cripple the opponent. However, much to his chagrin, the damsel had shown no signs of despair not distress. Rather she had seamlessly blocked and transitioned into offense. Reciprocating with an innocuous palm thrust that prompted Loki to smirk and raise his left forearm. Gone was the conceited woman that had arrogantly berated him and in her place was an adamantly focused warrior. If she felt confident in her defensive capabilities so did the marine. As such in keeping with his raised arm, Loki had tensed his muscles [Block].

His excitement brewing at the prospect of interacting with the famed Hasshoken shockwave. When the opponent's counter finally struck against his body, his bones had rattled at the impact. A powerful albeit not overbearing sensation throbbed across his person as he felt himself exposed. The defense and constitution he'd grown so proud off found wanting in that split instance. Still, Loki remained ever so cool and immediately proceeded to thrust his right palm forward [Attack]. Mirroring the enemies earlier sequence his technique would give rise to a surging wave [9 DMG]. He also spiked its potency [Support] with the intention of lowering the woman's Power and Agility.

NPC Response: Sakura Kotomaru took another hit from Loki and smiled with such an intensity. She had long since became the strongest of her class, so fighting worthy opponents was an opportunity for in-between. Using the last hit to create distance between them, Sakura slid back prepping her next attack. The Dojo Master, who had just entered, saw her preparing one of Hasshoken’s ultimate techniques. He simply cleared his throat, a thunderous noise, but it was enough to cause Sakura to halt her actions. In a sense of concern, she quickly bowed and apologize knowing that technique is forbidden to be used inside the Dojo.

The bout between Fishman Karate and Hasshoken had been prematurely terminated by a guttural roar. Loki had turned to examine the recent arrival at the dojo. The inconspicuous looking individual had the stereotypical look of a martial-artist sensei. An old scruffy man with a discerning expression that bordered between wise, inquisitive and condescending. At least the marine presumed so as his general demeanor reminded him of his previous teachers. Of greater surprised had been the reverence his female opponent had extended towards their fight. Ceasing the opportunity Loki patted down his coat and procured a fountain pen.

He would proceed to move towards the young woman and reach for her torso, wrapping his fingers around her fighting costume and stretching it to get good surface. Once confident he proceeded to sign his name. "Its worthless at present but hold onto it until I become an Admiral" Loki winked pleasantly and turned to confront the dojo master. "Wouldn't happen to be asking your students withhold their abilities would you?" Loki voice begun, his voice low and warm as the jubilant expression smeared on his face. "You know I'm currently in the market for a trainer. The Marines keep trying to force Rokushiki on me. How about?? If I pass you show me the secrets that make your shockwaves so incredible."

Wu Jing watched as the rather flamboyant visitor quickly overwhelmed one of his students. He carefully watched the man's movements, it was obvious he was a practitioner of Fishman Karate. "It seems like you're not all talk." Wu Jing arose from his seated position. "But it seems like your sharp tongue needs to be dulled." Wu Jing immediately dashed forward and struck the man in the stomach, only using enough force to cause some minor pain. "Think twice before drawing on another's gi." Wu Jing walked back to his original position.

"We don't normally take on students who already have their own style. Besides, Fishman Karate already revolves around generating shockwaves. Learning Hassoken would be a waste of time, would it not?" Wu Jing wanted to know why the brat wanted to learn the Eight Impact Fist. "You mentioned Rokushiki, a fine martial art, but you don't wish to learn it? Tell me, why are you so drawn to the Eight Impact Fist?"

The older gentleman had arisen and moved at a stupendous speed before landing a strike upon Loki. The marine angled himself forward and gripped his torso and groaning throughout the sequence. The fantastical world of the Krakken had been perversely been invaded and as his legs buckled and dropped him to his knees. As the geriatric Hasshoken master continued prattling on, Loki rubbed his stomach, appeasing the food that rumbled within. "Clown" he moaned silently and raised his head to stare into the eyes of his would be teacher.

"Why would a swordsman undertake dual wielding when a single blade accomplishes the task?" Loki begun as he considered the nonsensical nature of the question asked. "Fishmen Karate is in its purest and strongest from when underwater. As its designed to distort fluids and its mediums. Those distorts produce devastating outcomes of which shockwaves are one." The Marine paused to allow himself a moment to catch stifle a belch. "Hasshoken on the other hand focus on generating and emitting shockwaves."


"
Those emissions have of greater quality and destructiveness. What woodcutter wouldn't welcome an axe over a rock?" By then the Marine felt the discomfort from earlier subside and life returned to him. As such he begun to arise his signature smirk creeping against his face. "Old-man. In life you're one of three things, wolf, sheep or sheepdog. I'm currently undertaking a journey beset by wolves. Naturally I need fangs and Hasshoken is that gateway. So how about it. Aren't you curious to witness a signature technique that combines both our schools?? "

Wu Jing watched his flamboyant visitor ramble on. Much to his disappointment, he was no different from the rest. This young man was just power-hungry, so much so he couldn't even master Fishman Karate before looking for another style. Wu Jing had seen his type time and time again, few of them actually prove their worth. Wu Jing chuckled as the boy before him attempted to pique his interest.

"Aren't I curious? If I was I would have tried to learn Fishman Karate years before you appeared, you damn welp. " Wu Jing respected the attempt to sway him. Wu Jing saw potential in the man before him. "As I said before, we don't normally take in students who already have their own style...But." Wu Jin was aware of some marines who have learned both Rokushiki and Hassoken. " Those who prove their worth are worth making an exception for. I won't allow Hassoken to be inherited by a lollygagging welp who can't fully commit! The question is, are you ready to prove yourself?"

Loki cleared his throat as the Hasshoken's master reciprocated and engaged him in further conversation. Now that he was closer and within his personal space he observed the man with finer detail. Despite his general gruffness and hardened physique his manner was dripping in zest. A certain sassiness lingered about whenever he flexed his intellect and dropped witty one-liners. The marine smiled even further when the man called him a welp.


Brokkr and Sindri loved to drop that term whenever he'd visit their workshop. It was decided he would make this man teach him -- whatever the cost. Pursing his lips and talking with calm confidence he made his desire known. "As long as you vow to dutifully guide me down the path of Hasshoken's mastery, I am fully committed to the cause." As a signal of his intent, Loki begun cracking his fingers and stretching his arms and legs. "Am ready to prove my aptitude and determination."
