The journey north had been long and tiring. But worst of all, Miral Nerys was exposed and vulnerable, and she knew it. As soon as she moved north past Karem, Miral regretted offering to escort her charges to the foot of the Kyrias Mountains. She had found them wandering through a forest just south of Karem, and she took it upon herself to guide them to where they were going. Her desire to help temporarily overruled her usually overwhelming sense of caution, though the scales soon tipped once she fully realized what she had agreed to undertake. But she had made a promise, and despite the increasingly tight feeling in her chest as she traveled north, Miral was determined to fulfill her promise. So she brought her charges to where they wanted to go, and they happily continued their expedition despite Miral's warnings about the area. They gave her some gold for her trouble, and she began to trek south again.

By this time though, a stiff wind was bringing cold and snow down from the mountains, and the conditions were severely hampering her progress. She pulled her cloak around her tightly and shivered, deciding to take some shelter to let the storm pass. She remembered a small village she had passed earlier in the day, and decided that she would try there first. She had Inara revert back to her staff form, as her lifelong friend was struggling in the unfamiliar climate, and this also granted Miral a walking aid through the thickening snowfall. She reached the village soon after, and was relieved to find that it had an inn with vacancies. She walked in and sheepishly approached the counter, clumsily fiddling with her money as she tried to pay for a room. She immediately rushed over to the large hearth and let Inara return to her normal form to acquire some warmth. Once warmed up sufficiently, Miral and Inara went upstairs to their room to rest.

Miral awoke in darkness, with the only light source coming from a flickering orange source outside. She got dressed quickly and ran to the window and gasped. A large part of the village was ablaze. She could hear screams and fighting nearby, and she saw a village militia just outside the front door to the inn fighting a bandit. Miral took aim and stuck the bandit in the head with an arrow from her bow, before climbing out the window and deftly scaling the wall to ground level. The militia thanked her. "Thank you, mi'lady." Miral looked at the man with apprehension beginning to crack her features. "What's going on?" The man looked around in concern. "Bandits. They attacked in the night. They're burning the- AAAAGGGHHH!" The man was cut off by an arrow hitting him square in the chest, and he crumpled to the floor. Miral spun and loosed an arrow with lightning precision, hitting the archer in the head. She rushed over to the man, but he was already dead. She looked up to see a unit of bandits storming around a corner in front of her. She pinged the leader in the chest before turning and running for her life.

Miral charged around a corner and ran straight into a wall of steel. She fell backwards in stunned heap on the ground. She looked up to see a colossal individual in heavy armor standing over her. She hadn't seen someone this imposing in a very long time, and she almost didn't register the Unit of bandits that had trailed her approaching from the side. She as completely transfixed on the massive man and simply shrank back against the wall behind her.

Snow and wind and darkness were no obstacle to the mountain of a heanta known as Korroth. He trudged forward through the snow, each step taking him closer to his pray. Who was very far south. Korroth's single minded desire to end life would probably result in a few deaths between now and then, but he was disiplined enough to not go to the nearest village to slaughter its occupants. That being said, the nearest village was the directly in his path, so he would pass through it.

As he came closer to the village, he noticed flames rising from the thatch roofs of some of the buildings. It appeared he arrived just as someone else decided to attack the village. Unconcerned by this he continued down the road. The din of battle reached his ears, the sounds of death and screaming appealed to him. He sensed a fight coming his way, and the anticipation had him reaching for his weapon.

And just like that, a small form rounded the corner in a blur of green and slammed right into Korroth. She bounced right off, landing on her ass. He watched with mild surprise as she stared up at him. He could see the fear in her eyes, but as a unit of bandits came charging after her, he assumed they were the cause. She threw herself against the wall, cowering. A pathetic display, but his attention moved from her to the five men who glared at her. They noticed him almost instantly, flinching back almost involintarily. "Na'Kora's pussy he's a big lad." One of them said.

"You a heanta big man? You want to help us sack this town and earn some coin?" Another asked. One of the men sneared. "Great idea. As long as i get to sack this little bitch." He said, aiming a kick for the woman on the floor. Korroth was hardly disgusted by the man's intention for the girl, and there was nothing chivilrous about him. He had just heard enough mindless chatter and chose that exact moment to draw his long knife and slice the leg from under the man as he kicked. He toppled backwards screaming, and Korroth's armored foot smashed down on his skull crushing it.

At that moment, a terrible aura of fear hit everyone around him. One of the men dropped his weapons and joined the girl on the floor, cowering. Another charged him, only to end up in Korroth's vice like grip. Korroth crushed his throat and threw the man into the other two, knocking them down. As they struggled to free themselves, he smashed a foot down, caving in a chest, and stabbed the other in the face. Another quick slice finished the man who was cowering.

Korroth turned to the girl, and drew his bardiche. But before he could do anything else, an arrow plinged off his armor. He turned to face a bandit archer who was nocking another arrow in his bow. He drew back and fired again, as Korroth started to walk, the arrow hit his leg and richoched away. The man nocked a third arrow, and Korroth went from a walk to a run to a charge. He ducked his head and brought it up, driving his horns into the man's chest and goring him. He threw the man over his shoulder, screaming and spraying blood all over korroth's armor.

Korroth turned around to finish the job but the man bled out faster than he expected. Several more bandits rushed him, an the towns own malitia men ran to aid, but they assumed Korroth was on their side, and that was their mistake.

Miral had not seen power like this in a long time. She looked up at Massive Man and he stared back with a gaze as cold as death. It was as if the very environment around her also cowered in his presence. As she sat against the wall paralyzed with fear, Miral had just enough wherewithall to realize that he was an Heanta, and she wondered if there were others like him out there. The bandits that had pursued her stopped at the sight of Massive Man in their path.

The bandits attempted to recruit Massive Man, which even Miral had to admit was smarter than trying to fight him. At the same time, one of them aimed a kick for her, but Massive Man suddenly had had enough of the negotiations and cut the bandit's standing leg out from under him. Miral curled up tighter as Massive Man stomped the fallen bandit's head into the ground. He then turned to the rest, and Miral began to try and crawl away. But then her blood suddenly turned to ice, and the light of the fires in the village seemed to suddenly rise high into the sky. For a moment, Miral was no longer in the village. She looked around, trying to find out what was happening, and she realized with sudden dread where she was.

The burning forest of Harodiel extended in all directions. Miral looked around in terror and saw a face in the foliage nearby. It was Kira, her Kira, and Artem. They were lying on the ground, their cold, dead stares gazing nowhere in particular Miral recoiled in shock, tears streaming down her face, just in time to see Onyxus rear his head over the trees and unleash his flame breath on her. Miral dropped to the ground in a ball and screamed.

The sounds of somebody else screaming brought Miral back to the present. Miral raised her head and chanced a look around. Inara was back in her normal form, and she was desperately tugging at Miral's cloak. Massive Man was a few yards away, and he had just gored an archer with his horns. Miral had Inara revert back to staff form, and rose shakily to her feet, wiping tears from her eyes. She tried to run, but more bandits arrived, while what was left of the village militia came from another direction. Miral was caught in the middle of a fight, and Massive Man was too.

Korroth’s bardice ripped through the air as the bandit and militia forces seemed to converge on him, and he dealt considerable damage in that one strike. Limbs and heads and half severed torsos flew through the air, and there was no mercy to his blade. Bandits and Militia forces dropped around him, causing screams and angry shouts. One man told him to watch his swings, and Korroth’s fist found his face, bursting it open and spraying blood. The Militia realised that Korroth may not actually be on their side and suddenly gave him a lot more room. He had been caught in this fight by accident, and as long as they kept their distance he kept his focus on the bandits.

A sword slammed into Korroth’s side, steel scraping over steel as a bandit tried to slash him open. Korroth grinned, eyes flashing, and brought his bardiche overhead, splitting the man down the centre. He pushed forward and ripped the bardiche upward, the curved back of the weapon catching in on a man’s sternum as it ripped through his guts. Korroth swung the weapon, man and all, to the side and he slipped free from the bardiche, slamming into his allies. While there was many bandits, they started to realise there wasn’t enough to stop Korroth even as arrows sparked off his armor. The majority pulled back, leaving a single brave man who tried to throw himself on Korroth and drive a knife into his neck between helm and shoulder plates.

Korroth’s massive hand caught the man by the collar even as he felt the steel break his chainmail and pierce into his neck, deep enough to draw blood. Korroth let out a roar of rage and ripped the insect free of him, and smashed him into the ground. The man tried to push himself up and flee, and Korroth’s foot smashed down on his back. Bone crunched and the man screamed in agony, even as Korroth lifted his foot and slammed it down again and again. Crunching bone turned to meaty thumps as he pulverised the man’s spine and ribcage.

He glanced around at the bandits, who were now actively retreating and the militia who were hellbent on making them pay. Korroth spotted the cowering Girl watching the fighting, and several bandits converging on her. They’d cut their losses, but they wanted to take something with them. It made sense, if Korroth had been routed so easily, he would at least try to kill some people on his way out. Not that he would flee. He’d rather die then sink so low. However, they had pissed him off and would not leave here.

Korroth started to walk forward as the bandits surrounded the woman and drew his longknife. He threw it, impaling the furthest man, and as they turned to look at him, he brought his bardiche around in a sweeping blow to slice one of the men in half at the waist. Two of the men charged, and the third attacked the woman. Korroth swung his bardiche and cut one man’s legs off at the knees. The other drove his spear towards Korroth’s shoulder, and it caught in the plates and found its way through the chainmail into his flesh. The man looked triumphant, until Korroth reached up, snapped ripped the spear free and snapped it.

The man tried to back up, but to late as Korroth spun the spear head around and drove it down through the top of man’s shoulder into his heart. If the bandit who had attacked the girl was still alive, he would catch him and snap him in half like a twig over his knee. If the girl was alive, he simply glared at her. He knew he should just kill her. She was weak and cowardly, though if she had fought off the bandit and killed him Korroth would at least consider sparing her though he wasn’t sure why.

What followed was a bloodbath, the likes of which were normally reserved for the darkest nightmares a person could have. Miral watched in horror as Massive Man ripped through the bandits with reckless abandon. His armor protected him from a majority of his enemies attacks, while his own attacks ripped his foes asunder with brutal efficiency. The militia, who up until now believed that Massive Man was here to help, now also started to back off to give Massive Man room. Especially after one of them scolded him for not being careful with his swings, and was promptly cut down.

Miral was starting to shake her visions, though flashes still occurred intermittently. She suddenly realized that the bandits were retreating, and the militia was chasing them off. But a handful of men advanced on her, determined to take some sort of compensation for then losses they had suffered. One of the men was suddenly impaled by what looked like a longsword, splashing blood in Miral's face and over the front of her clothes. One of the remaining men advanced on her, while the other two moved to face Massive Man. The huge warrior cleaved one man's legs clean out from under him, while the other one connected with a spear thrust that succeeded in penetrating Massive Man's armor. The victory was short-lived however, as Massive Man picked the man up and broke him over his knee.

The third man turned in shock when Massive Man dealt with his allies, and something in Miral took control of her limbs in that instant. Using the distraction of Massive Man, Miral suddenly swept the man's legs out with her staff, putting him on his butt. Then, she followed up with a swift smack to the face, knocking the man out cold. Miral wasn't sure what came over her and allowed her to do that, but she also had no time to dwell on it. Massive Man advanced on her, and the feeling of dread and hopelessness returned with a vengeance. She backed slowly away, her staff dropping from her shaking hands. Inara returned to her normal form and stood before Korroth, hissing at him with malice. The ocelot was defiant and brave, and Miral silently pleaded for mercy from the Gods.

The bandit was dealt with by the girl, and Korroth felt a moment of hope that she might put up a bit more of a fight, but as soon as she realised he was advancing on her, she dropped her staff to the ground and began to cower again. His face twisted with disgust at the sign of weakness, and he stepped forward, but the staff turned into an animal of somekind, and began to hiss at him. Probably the only courageous creature in one hundred miles of this decrepid town. Korroth raised his Bardiche, preparing to sweep the animal from his path.

***

There was fire everywhere, the village was burning, and somehow Vala had nearly slept through the whole thing. Typical of her body to finally decide enough was enough and force her to take a nap when the bloody place was attacked. The redhead was up and dressed in minutes, strapping on her Drakna. She strung her bow, and stepped out into Chaos. People were running in every direction, and there was pockets of fighting in every direction. A bandit dashed out of an alley chasing a woman, and got a hold of her hair, but Vala put an arrow through his neck. The woman stared at her in awe. "Don't gawk, run!" Vala snapped a bit too harshly. She was still tired, and a tired Vala was a cranky Vala.

Vala pushed further into the chaos, shooting any bandits on sight. One caught her from the side but she dodged his grab deftly, and punched him across the jaw. She found herself in the town square. The place was littered with bodies, bandits and militia men alike, and as she scanned the place she felt a strange dread. Something bad had happened, but why she felt a sudden spike of fear she couldn't explain. Until she spotted the massive heanta stabbing a man in the neck with half a broken spear. There was no mistaking that Armor, even drenched in blood. Actually, given the nature of its owner that was probably how it looked most of the time.

Korroth had come. She had made a very big mistake coming this far north. She should leave and run. She started to back away. Vala stopped herself, as she spotted a small animal snarling up at the beastly heanta. Her eyes scanned the background, and she spotted someone else. An eldari?  "I'm going to regret this." She said. She drew back her bow, and aimed for the back of Korroth's head.

Just as he went to attack, the arrow hit the back of his helmet. It bounced away harmlessly, but none the less attracted his attention. Vala was already moving, running forward at full speed, her fist glowing energy. Korroth turned his full attention on her, and raised that wicked bardiche to cut her down the center. She side stepped the attack, and lunged forward, her fist slamming into the armor plates at his shoulder. Energy exploded, the metal crushed. He didn't even flinch. His counter attack was instantanious, the back of his gauntlet smashed into her ribs.

Vala ended up on her back at the feet of the eldari, who was cowering. She wasn't surprised. Korroth was massive. What was she thinking! "Valatrix of the Hornless clan." He stated. "Nope, not her." Vala said. She jumped up to her feet, backing off. She grabbed the eldari by the arm. "I don't know why your still here but for the love of Na'Kora and Na'Sora and what ever other gods there are, run!" Vala said, and started to pull the woman from the town.

Korroth didn't chase. Simply shouted after her. "Run little Hornless. You and your eldari freind will meet my steel soon enough. Unless knightfall gets to Shor first." That almost made her stop. He was right, they would have to fight one day. But the trembling Eldari she dragged behind her didn't look like she'd keep running without Vala. Best to get her to safety first. So she kept running. And running. Until the fires were distant or the Eldari finally demanded to stop.

Miral closed her eyes, and waited for death. It did not come. Whether the Gods were listening or not, Miral did not know. But she heard and metallic thunk, and opened her eyes. Massive Man had halted his advance, and Miral caught the sight of an arrow skittering away harmlessly. Massive Man turned to find the source of the unexpected intrusion, and Miral saw the source approaching rapidly.

A red-haired girl was charging the behemoth that had just turned the bandits and the town militia single-handedly. She dodged Massive Man's attempt to split the difference with his bardiche, and hit him with a punch to the shoulder. The punch apparently had some sort of magical power backing it, because it caused a large dent in Massive Man's armor. The giant warrior was largely unmoved, though it was still the best hit anyone got on him that day. The girl was swiftly back-handed and sent flying, landing in front of Miral. The Eldross could not believe the courage, or stupidity, of this girl, but right now she was the only one between Massive Man and Miral right now.

Miral began to shakily get to her feet as Massive Man addressed the interloper as Valatrix of the Hornless Clan. Miral knew the Clan name, though the only member she was familiar with was Celeana, who was the leader of the Sanguine Dominion. The girl denied it, though Miral suspected that she was not telling the truth. The girl then turned to her and pleaded with her to run. Miral needed no second invitation, and nodded shakily, whispering to Inara. "Inara, come." The ocelot ran alongside Miral as she followed the girl. Massive Man called after them, but Miral was too busy keeping track of the girl ahead. She was fast, and though Miral in her younger days might have kept up, she was struggling now.

Eventually they stopped when reached a forest of ash trees, a sign that they were heading into warmer southern climes. Miral stopped and leaned against a tree panting. Though she normally looked slight anyway these days, right now she looked downright frail. She looked to her savior and mustered what strength she had left, which was a lot easier now that they were out of range of Massive Man. "Th-thank you. For s-saving m-me" She tried and failed to square her shoulders and control her shaking, so she simply leaned against a tree, while Inara remained at her feet staring warily at the girl.
