Who

Ghost Town

Chasing the glowing orb'll lead Thokk and Elyea here. It was probably once a nice place to live but now all the buildings have been reduced to craters on the land scape and corpses are scattered around the place like macabre christmas lights.
Obscurejones

Huh.  Could have sworn Nadine'd try to steer you kids away from this.
Who

"From what?"
Obscurejones

Psychopathy.
Who

"This can't have been Kar."
Obscurejones

Thokk thinks about it for a moment.
It could be if he's been practicing.
Who

"But he was all...booky."

She may not have seen him in ten years but she still remembers he had a ton of books.
Obscurejones

Well, when did you lat see him?
Who

"Umm...I can't even remember the last time."
Obscurejones

Then he's had time to evolve.  To reach his potential.
Who

"That doesn't mean he's turned in to a psycho."
Obscurejones

It means... He could be.  
Metakirb

Ary runs towards them.
Who

"Ary! What are you doing here?"
Metakirb

You told me to meet you at the castle!
Who

"Sorry stuff happened. Thokk's my brother's dad, we're going to find him."
Metakirb

He's what?!
Obscurejones

I thought everyone knew that already?
Metakirb

That hasn't come up before...
Obscurejones

I had a thing with Nadine when we were both younger.
Who

There's a loud crash just ahead of them as the remains of a building crumbles to the ground. A figure with a large shell on its back moves out of the wreckage.

"Who goes there?"
Metakirb

Ary instinctively draws her swords.
Obscurejones

Thokk starts towards the newly wrecked wreckage.
Who

As they get closer the figure hefts a piece of rubble over his head and flings it towards them, aiming for Thokk.
Obscurejones

Thokk ducks low and start to run towards the figure.
Who

The figure charges to meet him, its vaguely Kar shaped but covered in chitin. He swings a mace shaped arm at Thokk's midsection.
Obscurejones

Thokk tries to parry with his sword.
Metakirb

Ary moves to slash at it.
Who

The mace arm flows and solidifies around the sword, trying to pull it free of Thokk's grip as his other arm shifts in to a shield to block Ary's attack.

"Name yourselves."
Obscurejones

Thokk leaps up to kick at it's head.
I'm Thokk!
Metakirb

Ary swings her other sword round the shield, using her first sword to keep the shield in place.
Who

The creature's expression momentarily changes, letting his guard down for a split second allowing him to be knocked flying by the force of Thokk's blow. Avoiding Ary's attack in the process.

"He's got to be possessed or something!"
Obscurejones

Well duh.  Otherwise he would have known you.
Thokk tries to run his through.
(deadtime)
Metakirb

So what do we do?
Who

The creature is quickly back up on its feet, shoving at Thokks' weapon with his shield arm.

"Just keep it away from me." <Exorcism!>

Glowing strands launch out from Elyea, connecting her to 'Kar'
Metakirb

Ary moves back slightly, towards Elyea.
Obscurejones

Thokk throws a solid punch at it's head as his sword is deflected.
Who

"Witch! You dare taint combat with you spellcraft!?"

He tries to grab Thokk's hand as it swings towards his head and use it to throw him over him, clearing his path to Elyea.
Metakirb

Except Ary'll still be in his way.
Obscurejones

Thokk opens his hand mid punch, trying to grab the monsters hand as it tries to grab his.
Who

The Kar-things' hand is grabbed! Lets see where this is going.
Obscurejones

Thokk tries to pull it away from Elyea.
Who

The thing is pulled, trying to tackle Thokk to the ground at the same time.
Obscurejones

Thokk rolls with the thing, trying to keep a grip on it as they fall.
Who

Not a problem though his opponent does attempt to bite him, forming a mouth of large jagged teeth, as they fall to the floor. Elyea falls forward as the strain of trying to free Kar from possession begins to take its toll on her.
Obscurejones

Thokk tries to cram a sword in it's mouth instead of his face.
Who

I hole in the back of its face opens to let the sword out the other side, large claws growing from his hands to try and dig in to Thokk.
Obscurejones

Thokk screams and his tatoos flare.  
He bleeds but his wounds don't seem to be slowing him down or weakening him.
Who

"Ary help him!"

The creature's mass increases as its armour hardens. Trying to pin Kar down.
Obscurejones

Thokk grins at the shift in weight, holding the creature a foot or so above himself.
Metakirb

Ary sends a burst of fire at Kar.
Who

It hits him square on and if I remember correctly he's not a fan of fire. Roaring in pain and trying to run for cover.
Obscurejones

Thokk tries to hold the burning beast in place.
Who

With a flash, he's much less beasty and very much Kar-y. The strands connecting him and Elyea vanishing as she falls over.
Obscurejones

Thokk tosses Kar aside and dashes to check Elyea's pulse.
Who

It's fine, though she does look like she's about to throw up.
Metakirb

Are you okay?
Obscurejones

(Do I control Kar now?)
Thokk tries to help her to her feet.
Who

Yes, yes you do.

She quickly gets to her feet, clutching her stomach.
Obscurejones

Kar groans and starts to get to his own feet.
Who

Elyea grins in triumph, she exorcised the crap out of that demon! The she doubles over and empties her guts on to the floor. It's quite the contrast.
Metakirb

Elyea!
Who

She doesn't move from her position on the ground.

"I'm fine..."
Metakirb

No you're not, let's just get you home.

She tries to help her up slowly.
Who

Elyea's slowly helped up, groaning as she tries to keep whatever's left in her stomach down.
Obscurejones

Kar looks around.  Groans.
This... Is this me?
Who

Elyea seems to recover momentarily, attempting to run over and hug her rescued brother.
Obscurejones

He hugs gently back.  Slowly shifts into his glasses and suit.
Who

"I'm so sorry we didn't come and find you sooner."
Obscurejones

U.. Understandable.
Who

She shakes her head, not stopping hugging him just yet.

"No it's not. Mum'll be really happy to have you back."
Obscurejones

That she will.  Time I was getting both of you back.
Who

Elyea's grip on Kar falters as her eyes roll in to the back of her head, she's probably going to hit the ground without any intervention.
Metakirb

Ary runs to try and catch her before she lands.
Obscurejones

If Ary can't make it Kar'll simply hold on.
Who

"I don't feel so good..."

She wretches, trying to push herself away from Kar so as to not vomit all over him.
Metakirb

Let's just get you home...
Obscurejones

Thokk frowns.
Ary, now'd be a god time to be a goddess.
Metakirb

Huh? But my claw... whenever I have my powers it goes completely out of control! I... I'd do more damage than good...
Who

Elyea drops to the floor and wretches as white light spews from her mouth and eyes. When she speaks she sounds absolutely terrified.

"What's happening?!"

In a blind flash Elyea's no more and the assorted godlings and shapeshifters will find themselves in a large muddy trench, stretching along in either direction.
Metakirb

E...Elyea?
Obscurejones

Well that's no good.
Kar just stares.
Metakirb

And the full impact of what's just happened hits Ary, she screams and bursts into tears.
Obscurejones

Thokk tries to move to comfort Ary.
Metakirb

She practically clings to him, crying into his chest.
Obscurejones

Kar tries to sniff out any remnants of his sister.
Metakirb

Ary's crying slows to sniffling.
Who

There's a faint smell of Elyea coming in several directions. Either end of the trench and over either side of it.
Obscurejones

She...
Died saving you.  Earn that.
Metakirb

Still a sniffling Ary.
Who

If Kar's paying particular attention he might notice one of the scents getting closer, coming from either side of their trench rather sharpish.
Obscurejones

Kar frowns and tries to see if he can get a visual on what it is?
Who

Easy peasy, two men are running towards them from either side of the trench. Each wearing tattered looking army uniforms and brandishing rifles.

"Who goes there!"
Obscurejones

Thokk glares and levels his sword towards them.
I'd give us a moment of peace.
Who

The stop a short distance away, pointing their weapons at Thokk.

"They don't look like the Admiral's bunch."

"Well they're not ours."

"Maybe she's getting clever."
Obscurejones

Kar looks up.
She?  Who's she?
Who

One of them speaks up, probably the leader judging by his shiny medal.

"The Admiral, how do you not know that?"
Metakirb

Ary's sniffling has stopped, but she's not saying anything.
Obscurejones

He's a mite slow.  Mind bringing him up to speed for me?
Who

"She's the one who started this damn war. Where are you from?"
