Rayna was running. Her heart pounded, her maw was open and her jaws slavered. Thirsting for the blood of the boy king.

Boy King.

She scoffed. King he might be in Morba’s eyes, but he was not worthy. Not to her. Not until he won this fight, or he lost honorably. He was a just a boy— a child. And Rayna wanted to put the child in his place. Her muzzle twisted into a grotesque smile as she came to a stop. Her hackles rippled and raised and her whole mangled body quivered with excited anticipation. Her scars burned with a fiery energy from the mere knowledge that Morba had touched her there. Had raked her open. Torn her flesh with her teeth.

Yes. It was time. The long awaited rise of a pack born straight from the pits of hell. Her blood boiled, heated by the flame of the hounds awaiting their new home. Their images flashed through her mind as she looked upon the ground that lay before her. Parched and thirsting for their blood spilling through fur and onto it earthen mouth.  Like a film sped forward the sick faces and demonic traits of the hounds that depended on her flashed through her mind, and then came to a stop.

Morba.

The twisted face of the goddess that ruled her very being consumed her. Her purpose, her presence even just in her head, her faith in her… Rayna’s smiled deepened until it was just a viscous flash of teeth. A growl rumbled somewhere deep in her chest, crashing through her torso and exploding from her jaws in a thunderous snarl, until it melted into a howl.

She was here.
She was waiting.
And she was ready.

Morba certainly knew what she was doing, sending her to fight Ximenes. But of course...
It was always dangerous to let a demon off its leash.

Ximenes followed the slavering, running form of Rayna to one of the better clearings in the edge of LaVayan, it was near the river that split his lands. The ground was firm mixing to sand and rock the closer you got the river. The spot she had stopped in had hills and groves, it was far from flat, and on one side the river raced past them.

That was about all the time he had for their surroundings, but it was good to take note of what you had to work with.

He dug his toe nails into the sod/moss mix under his feet and eyed up his opponent, his long tail lashed and twisted about his back legs as his weight adjusted.  Morba was watching, but unless she interfered he paid her no mind. Training was kicking in, he was all nerves but was forcing himself to keep calm and READ his opponent.

.Look and Listen.


There was no hatred held for his challenger, no blind emotions to blur his sight of her, she had her hackles raised and was making some kind of noise as she looked at him. The look in those eyes said blood lust and fanatic rage. She was here to take him down, that was very clear, he had seen those eyes before.
.Eyes like the ones that killed father.
She was a tank, larger and heavier than he was, she had seen more battle too, the scars that criss crossed her had not gone un-noticed. But that didn't mean she was smart at combat, just that she had seen it. Still she was dangerous, he needed to play this smart.

.Focus Look for her weak spots.

He considered a few prime spots, it meant a lot of risk on his part, but he did his best not to show his thoughts, he simply plotted as she turned to him. The tank snarled and then let out a howl, a battle cry, where ever her head was at she had focused.

.Its time,  you are a prince, time to show it.

In response Ximenes answered her, his own call screaming from his throat, its dual almost musical and sad tones raised up and crecended to a tone never before heard from him, a bone chilling banshee wail tore through the air. From that he lowered his head, guarding his throat like his father had taught him. He did not charge the tank, instead he started a circling spiral, a tactic his uncle had shown him, and growled as he approached. Bristles flared like a cock or cobra before it struck, all six hair clusters standing strait out, those hairs were his hackles or the muscles served as such, no part of his thick main rose like Rayna's did.

He attempted to intimidate, he displayed, he did not attack just yet but he was closing the gap.

.It was time.

As the howling of her opponent vanished into silence, so did the frenzy in Rayna's actions. Her body was still electric with energy, her growling an ever present rumble, but she no longer had the air of a rabid dog. Fury, yes, bloodlust, yes, aggression, nearly tangible. Her fur rippled with the drug of combat as Ximenes flared up, and she bared her teeth in a taunting grin in return.

Ximenes circled her and she circled back, letting him draw in closer, but at a slower pace while she compensated. She watched his movements, saw his size, build, age. He would be quick, she was sure. But Rayna... well she had a few tricks to spare. Maybe the kid could take a lesson or two from this. His intimidation attempt didn't work on her. Not when she thrived off spilled blood and tearing flesh. It excited her.

Mid step she flexed her claws into the dirt and launched herself forward with as little warning as she could muster, using the closed space to advantage. Her attack for now was relatively simple:

It was a calculated charge. Her teeth, with Xi's head tucked over his throat, left the back of his neck exposed. She came at him from an angle so she was not face to face, but trying to attack from the shoulder. Her teeth would initially snap for the back of his neck, and one paw would raise to utilize her weight as she attempted to barrel into him to do so. That paw would be aimed to land on his back so she could knock him over.

Should he counter attack and try to bite her throat or neck in defense, if she had not made contact with his neck, she would snap at his muzzle and try to lock their jaws together, where she had a better chance of control. From there she could attempt to wrestle him to the ground

If her teeth did find his neck then she would use all her body and strength to force him to the ground, where she could thrash her head and send all his senses into a confusing whirl.

Should he however escape completely, she would attempt to tear into him again. She would not let him rest, not give him any breather, and make his world as chaotic as she could. She'd bite into anything she could reach while he evaded her, and be on his trail immediately, crashing forward like a bear. She's swipe at his as he evaded, not to slash, but to bludgeon.

((ooc:

-initial charge for the back of his neck, which she attempts to reach by crashing into him and driving him to the ground

-if he counters with an attack and makes it impossible for her to reach his neck she will still be attempting the crash into him, but she will try to lock jaws where she has the chance to wrestle him into submission

-if he evades her she will follow as close as she can, attempting to bite into the body part closest to her and "tearing" away, followed by a quick swipe. The swipe is specified not to utilize claws, but to bash))

He watched her flex and charge at him, attacking open mouthed at his closest side to her. His initial reaction was to open his own mouth to meet hers but any intended counter attack stopped at that.

If Ximenes had been experienced, had been in battle before, maybe his reactions would have differed, maybe like his father he would have pushed the long horns that protected the back of his neck into her mouth to jam up or glance off her bite (it was a favorite move of his fathers) to get inside her neck and shoulder zone or maybe he would have snapped at her under jaw, or gone for her neck.

But this was where experience outweighed simple teaching, this was where he learned.

The gaping maw directed at his neck made him flinch away, from her bite. Horror stories of his uncles battle with Dragon flashed in his mind as it occurred to him he might lose his horns in those teeth. Due to his angle the flinch meant he shoulder rolled from her attack, (right shoulder falling as his left came up causing his chest to drop, ending up protecting the neck but getting grazed with her teeth.) She might have just grazed him or possibly taken a chunk of flesh to chew, it was hard to tell for a prince who had never been bitten. Pain flooded his brain and caused him to twist and kick madly as her paw swatted him. If he had not been in a roll she would have easily bashed him to the ground. Instead her paw hit side on, adding impetus to his roll and wild kicking, spinning him to one side. His open mouth now snarled in pain and he snapped at the closest part of her, in this case, the front paw she was not bashing him with.

His reactions to all this was to get away from her front end, FAST! She was going to follow him if he just ran away. His tail lashed trying to add balance with the momentum he was in; he dug his nails into the earth attempting to get purchase. His intent was either to lunge at that leg mouth open and give it a nasty ripping bite and/or to end up dashing under her chest.

If he missed her leg entirely he would try to snap at her chest in passing under her and out her other side. If she pivoted and/or tried to fall on him to stop him making her chest unavailable he would collide/roll under her to snap at her side. Collusion would make him try to bite quickly then try to leap over her.

If all failed and she danced away from his attempted attacks, he would try to pivot and keep as close to her rear section as possible, his mind only thinking to keep as far from the knives in the business end as possible.

All attacks are retaliation and reflexive, not chomping or clamping a hold, more a desperate attack to hurt, bleed, and distract her. He needed his mind to stop screaming.

((Actions:
-Attack #1 he flinches from and takes a glancing blow, rolling to his right side, her paw meant to bowl him over, then only spins him to the side, angling him. In pain he starts to react reflexively.

- Attempts a snap at her bracing for leg, attack #1.

-In a need to escape her business end he uses his momentum to dash for under her chest. Hoping to be fast enough and make it out the other side.

-Attempts to bite her chest, attack#2, failing that attempt to bite her side Attack #3.

-Leaping over if she decides to not let him pass under. Rolling if passing under.

-Final position if not stopped is aligning with her rear.

Despite Ximenes skittering out of her grasp in his roll, she was pleased to find that he came at her again. Her jaws slavered as he lunged for her foreleg. Regaining her balance, she did not have to move much to throw this targeted attack off. In fact, she didn't  even try to completely avoid it.

As Ximenes snapped at her leg, she pulled it back a bit, not enough to throw off her balance, and not enough to evade his teeth. But she did not need to. Her head lurched down, going for Ximenes' face as she felt teeth cut open her leg. The tearing attack spared any damage to the bone, and as her blood spilled, she meant to rip the boy backwards by anything she could grab.

It was one of the risks to frontal attacks. She sacrificed an uninjured leg for the opportunity to attack his face or neck. Anything she could reach in that time.

As her head dropped, her body dropped as well. The result of that was an inevitable collision and close proximity.

Should her teeth close on anything-- face, neck, back, shoulder--  she would sink them in as far as they would go, and thrash her head, effectively ripping Ximenes away from her, and ripping flesh from his body as well. She would not let go until her teeth met each other and she tore whatever was in her mouth away.

If she somehow missed her mark or flesh was ripped before she could throw Ximenes to the dirt, then his quick bite and leap over her would be attempted to be foiled by her crouched body exploding upward. Knock him out of the air.

Her body would be targeted to whatever was above her, throwing off his leap and hopefully sending him tumbling to the ground in a confused roll. If nothing else then she hoped to throw off his landing zone and foil whatever he had planned.

If her initial attack had hit, and she had successfully been able to rip into Ximenes and throw him away, she would descend on him in a burst of speed, slamming him to a stop with teeth. She'd bite into muscle, bone, anything that would rip and tear and make him bleed. She wanted chaos. She wanted him to drown in it.

If her leap hit him and she did manage to knock him off target then she would put on the same burst of speed and try to collide in with him again, like a raging bull. Dont let him rest. Dont even let him hit the ground. Her mind sneered. Her intent was to make him suffer. Make him bleed. Cause him so much pain that when she went for his throat next, he would be glad she did. Turn his world into utter chaos, mixed with agony.

If she missed him completely however, and he did manage to get behind her, she would whirl around like a cat, swiping at him as she did and attempting to bludgeon the side of his face.Whether she missed or not she'd lunge at him again, this time with her teeth aimed at his face and forearms spreading to lock him in a painful vice where she could wrestle him to the ground.

((OOC:

Xi's attack on her foreleg was successful and Rayna used to closeness to drop her weight and attempt a bite at his neck/face. Should this succeed, she will attempt to rip flesh and throw him away, where she can attack while he is striking the ground or still confused. That attack will be to maim, the target being: flesh. No major artery is targeted.

If she missed and Xi successfully bites her and attempts his leap over her, she will explode upward to try and slam into him, hopefully catapulting off course. During this attempt her goal is to cause him to strike the ground in a jarring impact, where she can use the opportunity to attack him like in the first scenario

If she missed both attempts and Ximenes landed behind her, then when he landed behind her, she would whirl around, using the momentum to swipe at his head in a crushing blow, where she would utilize stunned senses or a concussion to snap at his throat or neck, whichever was open to her, where she would again try to shove him to the dirt.))

Due to the fact that Ximenes did not post within the 10 day deadline from Rayna's last post, the Redlands team would like to congratulate Diabolus as the winner of this challenge. Your board information will be forwarded to a moderator for creation, and your grace period of two weeks will begin when it is created. LaVeyan's boards will remain up for a maximum of two weeks in order for information to be saved before it is archived.

If there are any concerns or questions, please bring them to a Redlands Organizer. Thank you!
