Demonix hit the tree hard. Such an impact, its something no normal person should be capable of. He dropped to one knee, however got back to his feet shortly. "That was pretty intense..." he stated, chocking some, copious amounts of blood splattering over his gauntlet, which he held in front of his mouth. The blood appeared most unusual. As though it had been hardened and frozen. It was obvious why he took the impact so well.
He'd frozen certain parts of his organs, to strengthen them against such an attack, as well as crystallizing his blood in such a fashion. Almost like pumping liquid metal through his body instead of regular blood.
"But i told you, you're not so strong as to stop me" His body felt numb from the attack, though he could still move. Perhaps his unusual enhancements prevented the opponents current from being as effective as it normally would. He'd tried to avoid using his abilities i this battle, and still hadn't unleashed the full range of his frosty enhancements.

Aha... Backing down? It seems to me that you don't want to lose to a... Wounded... Opponent." He smirked, indicating the ground around him, which had become almost entirely frozen, from the few seconds of activating his defenses..
"But, i guess a little frost means nothing to you, hm?" he unequipped his talons, strapping them to his back, followed by his claws.
"Watch your back... Leongine." He smirked, taking off from the battle field.

{continued from the Inner Sanctum}......


The eastern forest, unlike any other greenery that surrounds the Sendai region, holds its special charm.... the tranquil chirping of birds.... the lusciousness of plant life.... the cool breeze that weaves interminably through the area.... and the grounds so fertile, even Mother Nature smiles down upon it with pride.

A small cluster of tree sparrows congregate on a branch, chirping merrily while they clean their wings, a luxury they can afford.

Not too far, a shadow formed out of nowhere. It has traveled in a constant rush, but makes an abrupt halt as it spies the birds..... slowly, the landed feet turns on an angle.... then, the shadow moves once again, completely avoiding the small creatures.

One branch... then the next.... and the next after.... the masked Izanagi traverses through the region while silence be his ally. He knows that this part of the wilderness is a paradise, but so too is the danger. The men that had lost their lives to track down 3 prominently lethal groups was proof enough that every precaution needs to be taken.

And as he leaps from tree to tree, he rewinds some of the info shared by his “badi-sama” Shō.

“Hmph, don't get me started on the issue of war. I've heard enough to last me a lifetime. Its a neverending cycle! Its like having 5 apples and you need to share it between 2 people. You give 3 to one person and the other will be angry. Take that extra apple and give it to the angry person, and you'll have the same result. Worse yet, one or the other will decide to give in and THEN take revenge later for being short 1 apple. And even if you cut the extra apple in half, you will get either of the 2 results -- Discontent for having to settle with less. .. or pride, for having been given a ½ apple as if its charity. That is war. The ceaseless gain of power and the saving of pride. I too sensed the changing of the winds, my lad. There is also that smell. You know how my nose works, heh!.... Blood.... Blood and the smell of death.

I know what's to come. The clashing of armies draws near indeed. I've received word that not only 1 but 2 huge groups of men will be arriving for the conflict, one of them will be from the west. If what I gathered is right, then there is even another that plans an ambush through the northern shore. I maybe old, Iz, but you've known me ever since you were a child. I have men that does the reconnaissance work for me. I am never wrong in these things.”

Izanagi spots a tree that seems high enough to perch and without hesitation, clambers his way up until he can get a gander of the entire region. As he stood there, his hands slowly curled into fists as he remembers one final input from Shō.

“By the way, I uhhh..... I hate to open old wounds, but there's a man you may need to keep your eyes on. It looked like he may have just strolled into town, but I have a feeling he is involved with your brother somehow. I need you to check in the town's archives when your mission's over.... well.... IF that building still stands by the time you return. Hmm.. I hope so.”

The rest of his words became a blur as a vision flashes through Izanagi's head..... the night of the festival..... fireworks...... his brother's room..... the place in shambles..... and Tenjin himself, shone brightly by the colored sparkling skies, his neck torn open as he lay on a pool of blood.

“My.... duty.... Duty to my mission and duty to my family. And yet a rogue am I, traveling such narrow roads.” Izanagi's voice trembles in a low whisper. While suffering the pangs of the past, his eyes continues to roam. And there, just a mile over, is the tree, the Jōmon Sugi.

He knows what he must do for now... the other will definitely come right after... one no less important than the other. With a slide down, followed by a lurch, Izanagi heads for the landmark.

A monk walking nearby comes into Dante's view. His bamboo hat shadows over most of his face, but it was clear from his movements that he was tired.

"Ah thank you kind sir. Let me get the god of fortune to bless you" The monk said chanting prayers as he accepted the meat.

"Don't you dare accept that" a Miko shouted as she suddenly appeared drop kicking the monk. She catches the meat as it flew out of his hands and hands it back to Dante. "We'll find our own food thank you" she said as she begun dragging the Monk away.

"But you're hungry too, you haven't eaten for a week" the Monk muttered as the Miko's stomach growled.

"No! We're fine, miko from my shrine can last a month without food and there were monks from his sect that lasted 5 years without food" The Miko said dragging the monk around Dante.

"But he did it by never breaking out of meditation not fighting bandits every other day. Please accept the kind mans offer, your being disrespectful" The monk said.

"I told you, this idiot here doesn't need your sympathy" The miko said shouting at Dante.

A swordsman appears before the Miko, kneeling before her. "Milady, my lord, I have brought you some food" The swords man said as he opened up a bag filled with bread and some dried meat.

"Where did you get this food?" The monk asks getting up.

"He stole them from the bandits we saw yesterday" another man said coming into view down the path.

The monk stares down the swordsman. "Tai, you know the preached to you that stealing is wrong, go return that food at once"

"My lord, it was obtained in a trade, their life for their food" Tai responded.

"Ok, lets eat" The monk said sitting down happily.

"Hey, isn't there something wrong here?" The Miko said questioning them

"Its fine, just eat, you too strange young man" The Monk said stuffing a piece of bread into the Mikos mouth.
