Her last fight had gone well, and Merc was confident that she could put behind the nightmare brought upon by the white demon.  She wasn't about to think that her last victory meant she was invincible, however, and looked to this new challenge with the same sober attitude as she had with Zaeha.  She admitted, she was confused when a female had announced the challenge, but it was a male who she would be fighting.  Was he a coward that he would not approach her beforehand?  Or did he hope to cause her confusion and throw her off her game?  Mercury was not sure, but she was also not going to let it affect her.

She stood out in the open of the somewhat familiar beach.  While she was not an overly superstitious sort, this ground had already tasted her victory once.  She hoped that whatever had helped her win, be it luck or simply the land's approval, would still be in the sand and the stones around her.  So calmly she waited, her tail laying down in a relaxed position and her ears flicking about for sound.  Some wolves approached first, meeting their opponents head on and showing the honor they had.  Others fought with shadow tactics, giving no warning before they struck.  Mercury idly mused on which type her opponent would be.

The sun was lower in the sky, signaling late afternoon.  She wouldn't have to fight in the dark this time, not that she had much cared before.  At least this time it wasn't raining.  In fact, despite the muggy feeling in the air, she was reminded of the light in the forest where she had grown up.  Perhaps, if there were more days like this, she could learn to tolerate the marshlands until they made the claim to return Nardir.  While these thoughts bounced around in the Dark Queen's head, she did not let them distract her from what was around her.  Her ears picked up the noises around her, and her brain cataloged them without disturbing her train of thought.  She would not be caught off guard.  Nardir depended on her.

OOC: I have permission from the person who plays Blitzblade to be the one witness to this fight.

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope. All of these are needed to have success in your life and your relationships. There is no single quality that dominates the rest and there is no one attribute that can be considered the most important. An even mix is required for one to truly be beneficial. Freedom, the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Justice: to be fair or reasonable. Honor is the personal integrity or the uprightness of a  character. Duty: The responsibility you have on to the world or someone. Mercy: Compassion or forgiveness. Hope: The feeling inside for you to hold on to your goals, your dreams. Take one out and you are left with an unbalanced life that either needs quite a bit of work or is to dominated to truly accomplish all that it can. It is funny how the most complicated solutions tend to have the simplest answers. The best things are the ones that have a beautiful natural answer. The earth itself, if you look hard enough, contains every one of these key elements that define what is natural. The freedom of the animals, the justice in both life and death, the honor in the nobility of every living thing. There is duty of a mother with her pups and there is mercy shown towards enemies and friends alike. It seems that hope abides even more than all the others for even in the seasons, in the chill of winter, there is always a hope for spring.

Asteria had witnessed a winter that she thought should have rightly killed all hope but the spring was just beginning to reveal itself. When that challenger had come for their land, it felt to the heiress like everything they had striven for was lost, down the drain with the rest of their goals. Her hope, and it seemed liked the packs as well, had been decimated. Funny though, her Mother and Blitzblade hadn't seemed to harbor the same feelings. They didn't surrender and through those actions, Almas Rotas was still alive today. In truth, the female felt guilty that in herself over the entire matter. A alpha would not give up on their pack in times of trouble or need and that is exactly what she had been doing. Doubting and losing hope rapidly. AR was recovering and so was she, but the fea was a different wolf than the one who entered into hardship. She was stronger and a heck of a lot more prepared for the events to come than she ever would have been before.

When Mother had come back from the land with news, Asteria had been the one to deliver it. She had fetched Blitzblade and at the last moment, decided it would be best to stick by his side through it all. A fight for land was good but it was also something she could learn from. With no doubt, she would need to defend her claim when the time came. Best to learn the ins and outs of marsh challenges when she wasn't being charged at with claws and teeth. The area they headed to wasn't remote but neither had Asteria been there previously. Before, she hadn't had a cause to... now was a different matter. Blitzblade was supposedly an amazing fighter. A warrior with honor, her mother would say. Though the wolf knew her place was to only sit and watch the fight, Asteria could but wonder about the future for a soldier like Blitzblade. He had joined forced with Mother to be a leading alpha in their pack, that much Asteria was perfectly aware of, but whether his stay was permanent or temporary, she wasn't sure. The fea hadn't exactly had a history with males who stayed around for very long. Her father wasn't the most dedicated to her mother... so much so that she had never even met him. If her grandfather was as flighty as Taramo, he wouldn't stay and assist Explode more than he needed to.

She padded in silence, all of these thoughts jumping around in her head as she mentally prepared herself for what she was about to witness. That was all I am doing, Asteria reminded herself calmly as her feet slowly began to transfer from soft marsh ground to sandy soil. I am a witness, nothing more. She knew the requirements about staying out of the fight and the need to not interfere. If she stepped in, the fight would be lost immediately. As to Blitzblade's opponent, who seemed to be standing calmly in the evening light, Asteria wasn't quite sure what to expect from her. The light brown wolf sat slowly down as she waited for her ruling alpha to speak, eager to hear what he was to say or if he would simply attack. Strategies were more than likely going through his head faster than the female could even imagine. One thing for sure though, he would fight this fight with honor in his heart and drive in his soul. That was just the sort of wolf Asteria knew Blitzblade to be.

The Lord of Almas Rotas resided near his family's den, pacing the area as he tried to wrap his mind around the news he had just heard. Taramo was dead. Any observer could see the brute was distraught by watching the father pace around, looking for the son he would never find again. Blitzblade had already been through this tragedy once before and thought he'd never have to experience it again. He had went through losing his son before, believing he had been dead at a young age, but was lucky enough to be reunited with him through the family Taramo had made for himself. It had been right at this very spot, where Blitzblade was pacing, that he had seen his son for the first time in a long time. Oh how he had grown into a healthy brute, both physically and mentally, which relieved the absent father. Taramo had morals, a beautiful family, and a fighting spirit. Blitzblade couldn't have asked for more. Taramo may not have been be the best father, which is hard to be without a father figure in his life, but he loved those pups with all of his heart.

Speak of which, it was one of his very own daughter who would snap the Blitzblade from his reminiscing thoughts. The elder brute stopped his pacing, jaded green eyes peering over at his granddaughter with the utmost heartbroken gaze. Blitzblade would soon be informed of the message that Asteria had been sent to give. Explode had laid claimed on the empty island nearby, but alas they'd soon find out that another had attempted to claim it. So it would result in a fight to see who'd win. Blitzblade rolled his shoulders before cracking his neck, loosening himself up in his way to prepare, before he made his way to the battleground. It didn't take long before he realized that he was being followed. "Yoo're mair 'en welcome tae come alang Asteria but Ah dinnae want ye involved. understuid?" Blitzblade stated as he continued to walk, his head never turning to her. He didn't mind if she came to learn the ways of battle, through observing, but it was unnecessary for her to get involved. Having already lost a valued family member, twice, he could not afford for it to happen again.

Assuming that she agreed, since Asteria followed in silence, Blitzblade slightly picked up his pace so he wouldn't keep his opponent waiting yet also avoiding tiring himself out beforehand. He wasn't sure how he felt about his granddaughter's presence, being protective of his family and all, but the Duchess needed to understand all aspects of running a pack if she was to succeed them one day. In all reality, he'd do all he could to prevent the harm of anyone in his family just to try to make up for the failure he had been when it came to Taramo. But alas, one day he would be too old to fight these battles and too much of a liability. Thankfully that would take some time and hopefully be enough for Asteria to take over the pack with confidence. Until that day would come, Blitzblade would continue to fight for the small empire his son had created. Almas Rotas was but a small dream that had became a reality and it was the one thing that kept everyone in the pack connected to Taramo in one way or another. Through the pack, Taramo lived.

Blitzblade and his company would make it to the battlefield around late afternoon, slowly but surely closing the distance between himself and his opponent. Once he neared, yet still a good distance away, he would stop momentarily. It was then that Asteria chose to sit, knowing that this was the spot where she would remain and observe. Once his granddaughter was settled, Blitzblade continued on his approach to the female. His posture matched her own, so should she raise herself dominantly then so would he, as he approached. Jaded green orbs observed the smaller female before him, his mind mentally cursing at the sex of his opponent. Blitzblade wasn't sexist or anything, hell he didn't care to shed anyone's blood, but he felt slightly more comfortable fighting a male over laying a fang on a female. Not only that, the beautiful female appeared to look around the same age as his grand pups. It was like fighting his own young, even if he didn't know the female. Unfortunately this would have to be his opponent, not in a belittling way, and he had to do what he had to for his family.

"Mah quine. Ah am Blitzblade, Laird ay Almas Rotas. Unfortunately Ah will be yoo're opponent thes bonnie afternoon." Blitzblade stated, respectfully dipping his head to her. He would raise it slightly before continuing to speak once more. "Ah dinnae wish tae barnie, but alas Ah can see uir situations ur a body in th' sam an' sae a body ay us backin' doon is jobbie. Fur 'at Ah request an honorable battle atween us sae 'at we main continue tae make uir dream a reality nae matter th' end result." Blitzblade finished before preparing himself. He had respectfully requested an honorable fight, which he did anytime he fought, as well wished them the best of luck in creating their dreams. Blitzblade didn't know this female but their goal to provide a safe home for their family was one in the same. He hoped Asteria was taking notes, for not all opponents were enemies. Depending on how the female reacted would decide how brutally he would fight. If she didn't want a respectable duel then there was no holding back. Blitzblade would give it all for his family, but even they didn't know the damage he was capable of.

((Sukie, love, I know you like embellishing your fonts in your posts, but the shadowing is VERY difficult for me to read.  Could you leave it out for me?))

"Mah quine. Ah am Blitzblade, Laird ay Almas Rotas. Unfortunately Ah will be yoo're opponent thes bonnie afternoon."

"My name is Mercury, Dark Queen of Nardir."  She extended her own greeting,

As he bowed Mercury nodded her head back in respect.  It was polite, and the show of mutual respect before a battle indicated the the Dark Queen that she was fighting a more honorable opponent than she had previously.  She was, however, having a bit of trouble understanding his rather thick accent, and cocked her head to the side as he continued his speech.  ((For real, I have to read this over 2-3 times to get it, hahaha.  I'm a grammar nazi))

"Ah dinnae wish tae barnie, but alas Ah can see uir situations ur a body in th' sam an' sae a body ay us backin' doon is jobbie. Fur 'at Ah request an honorable battle atween us sae 'at we main continue tae make uir dream a reality nae matter th' end result."

"I too, am unable to back down from my claim, Lord Blitzblade.  I must rebuild my pack so we can take back our homeland.  And we DO intend to take it back."

She squared her shoulders and prepared herself.  He was bigger than she was, which meant that brute force wouldn't work for her like it had with Zaeha.  She would have to be craftier, smarter, and faster.  Luckily, she had never been very slow to begin with.  Taking a few short steps, she burst into a run straight at her opponent.  All her body language indicated a charge, head down, shoulders squared and while she was quick in stride, it looked like she was bracing for the impact that came with a tackle.  This would be what her opponent would see.  But not what Mercury was thinking.  At the last possible instant she planted her front feet just off center from his front, using her momentum to kick and twist her back legs.  Instead of barreling straight into him in a way he would brace for because of how her movement read, she would use the majority of her weight to swing her haunches sideways, intending to impact with his ribs instead.  As her body twisted she would pivot, stepping away on her front legs while her back end hopefully barreled into his side.  She would do a couple of two legged steps while her back feet were airborne, continuing the momentum to carry her past his head and shoulders and swinging the rest of her to face him again, although now her head would be closer to his rump and tail.

Whether she it or missed, she was in prime position to make a grab for his back leg.  Her grab would be a simple one, swinging her head down to try and take hold of the rear leg by his heel.  If she got a hold of him that way. she could use it not so much to remove the movement in his leg, she wasn't looking for a crippling blow, but to off-balance him.  Having to balance on three legs was difficult, especially if, should everything work in her favor, she was able to pull it out horizontally so that it would not be easy to keep that balance.  With any luck she would be able to pull him over.  From there size wouldn't matter, because she would have the leverage advantage.

If her grab and pull missed she would still be behind his haunches, and her grab would instead be for a tail.  While he wasn't a tiger, a tail hold made it a lot harder for him to get to her, especially with his size.  If she could keep him from dealing serious damage and still having to move, she'd be able to read him better and hopefully get an idea of what she was up against.  Knowing was half the battle, and while she may not be the smartest there ever was, Merc had a calculating logic that made her a force to be reckoned with.  And more than that, she had a cause, and that fueled her. She had lost a fight, she had won a fight, this would tip the scales, and she wanted to come out on top.

The sunlight was drifting down lower as the afternoon progressed, but the setting was virtually ignored by the two opponents.  Mercury was entirely focused on Blitzblade, so much so that their spectator was completely ignored.  Mercury had no cheering section, no witness for her side.  She didn't want Alana at the fights, and Flint, the male who had offered his support, had no need to be here.  She would win or she would lose by her actions alone, and Mercury preferred nothing else.  So it was just her and Blitzblade as far as she was concerned, and they would fight until he yielded or until she was unconscious, because she refused to give up while a thought still went through her head.  She was fighting for her family, and she would NOT let it go.

Dude I coulda swore I did it without the glow, because I had this problem last fight. My bad, ill edit if your ok with it

Also I have slight confusion on something, if you wouldn't mind elaborating, but I don't see how she's near his haunched at all. I understand the swing and how her back legs would aim for his ribs but I don't see how the positions change enough for her to be grabbing at his hind area (unless the spin kicked hit, this sending him spinning). Could you clarify for me?

"My name is Mercury, Dark Queen of Nardir."

Blitzblade was pleased to see the Dark Queen nod her head in mutual respect, which showed a silent understanding between them, but at the same time it weighed heavy on his heart. Although he could feel sorry for an individual who had no heart, fighting and killing for no real meaningful purpose, it definitely made them an easier opponent to put down. This one held herself with selfless pride, the tone in her voice alone indicated that the true pride was in her pack. Blitzblade was honored to be staring into the eyes of another heartfelt leader. "It is a pleasure tae meit ye, Mercury ay Nardir, however Ah truly wish it hud bin under certain circumstances." He spoke in a heavy Scottish accent. Blitzblade could tell that the she was having a hard time understanding him with it but at least there was no real miscomunication between the two. Secretly, his accent was one of the very reasons why he depended on Explode to handle the politics. Blitzblade's family loved him and, in their own way, understood him. So instead he decided to show his loyalty to them by sacrificing his body day in and day out until he, too, could clearly speak on their behalf.

"I too, am unable to back down from my claim, Lord Blitzblade. I must rebuilt my pack so we can take back our homeland. And we DO intend to take it back."

Blitzblade listened intently to her vague story, once again noting the passion within her voice. "Ain Ah wish upon ye, an aw as Nardir, naethin' less." He spoke sincerely. They were both honorable warriors fighting for the families that they vowed to protect with every fiber of their being. Indeed It made the situation unfortunate because, although he didn't know the female, he still wanted her to succeed in her mission. Blitzblade had already readied himself for the battle that would soon come. Win or lose, hopefully both packs would be able to flourish one day. It was only a matter of which pack needed to take a different path once it was all said in done. With the type of leaders that represented these two packs, surely they would not die out without one hell of a fight. This, these types of moments, was what Asteria needed to learn to become a true leader of a pack. Such knowledge and passion would provide her true followers that would forever be her family. With all the proper respect given and the mutual understanding that one would not permanently hinder the other from physically accomplishing their dreams, it was time to ring the bell for the start of their fight.

Jaded green orbs watched carefully as the female took a few short strides before bursting into a run, closing whatever distance there was between the two. Mercury gave plenty physical indication as to what she was doing, head down, shoulders squared, making it clear that she intended to tackle him straight on. The only problem is that she underestimated the seasoned warrior. Blitzblade had seen many battles in his lifetime and therefore held the experience to know that not all fought the same, especially when there was a large gap in size. He was a good forty five pounds heavier, five inches taller, then his opponent and so a head on attack like this would not be the wisest move on her part. Blitzblade may not know much about Mercury but, through his brief interaction with the Dark Queen, he could tell she wasn't stupid. When the female because too close for comfort, so right around the time she would begin her spin kick, Blitzblade would jump back at an angle. So his leap backwards wasn't directly behind him, but to his left as well, that way if she had actually tried to follow through with tackling him straight on then he'd jump from her line of fire. In the end, he had called her bluff.

Springing backwards, and to the left, had given him enough room to completely dodge the spinning back legs coming towards him. As soon as the legs flew past him, Blitzblade wasted no time surging forward in order to begin his own assault. He would barrel towards towards her and ultimately attempted to tackle her to the ground, his chest area crashing against her shoulder area. As soon as their bodies would collide Blitzblade would attempt to wrap his front limbs around her neck and chest while, at the same time, snapping his large jaws around the side of the female's neck. He would press his whole body weight against her, if he had some kind of hold, in order to take her down. Given the timing, and the fancy foot work that brought Mercury closer even with her hind legs still in the air, the large brute would most likely collide with the female right around the time her back limbs landed on the ground thus trying to catch her off guard before she could regain full balance. If he was successful in bringing her down, the large brute would keep his hold on her neck and press his large body against her own in order to pin her and keep her down. There wasn't much to be done besides lay on her until she admits defeat. If she didn't, sadly he would have to help her make that decision by thrashing his head lightly to cause pain. He, of course, had no intention on causing real harm, just enough pain for her to tap.

If she somehow dodged his assault, though one would find it hard to since she wouldn't be able to see or read his movements with her in mid spin, by attempting to use her speed to spring her forward then he would act accordingly. Even if she chose to use a burst of speed forward, there was no logical way she'd be completely out of his reach given the timing it took for her to realize and react. Therefore, instead of attempting to slam his chest against her shoulder area, he'd attempt to tackle her hind quarters in the same manner. He'd attempt to wrap his front limbs around her back end, almost in the mating position but obviously to the side of her and not directly behind, and take her down that way. Whether he succeeded in bringing her down or not, but still had a hold, he'd aim to bite at her hip. Nothing to maim or cause permanent damage, since he wasn't aiming for anything vital, but just enough to cause pain. In the meantime Blitzblade would allow his legs to take the necessary steps to keep away from Mercury's jaws should she try to twist and bite. Again, given his weight, timing, and the fact that she was moving in a forward motion (should she choose this route), it would be hard to keep him from taking her down.

Should Mercury decide to dodge the initial tackle, the first attack, by any other way then he'd make sure to remain on her like white on rice.  Whichever way she moved, besides forward, he'd merely follow and act accordingly depending on how she'd attack next. Blitzblade knew that throwing his weight around would do him well in this fight, so giving her distance so she could conjure up some plan in her head was not something he would allow. Close combat would not only be brutal, but instinctive, because it would give neither of them real time to think. Just react. In regards to her other two attacks, it was safe to assume that it was never attempted due to the fact that she was nowhere near his haunches like she had planned. Should she try for it again, that was her choice, but at this moment those two ideas were foiled. The fight had only just begun, but needless to say his opponent already caught his interest. A spinning round house kick? How uniquely clever. Should their be no hard feelings after this battle, regardless of the outcome, perhaps this one could teach Asteria a thing or two about clever fighting. His big ass massiveness probably wouldn't be able to pull off such a maneuver but perhaps one day he'd try it himself. Who knew?

So her kick had failed.  Mercury was a bit surprised by the larger male's speed at being able to dodge her, but he wasn't quite fast enough. There was little time to collect herself, but enough to keep crouched down.  Her teeth were barred, her ears laid flat against her head as he barreled towards her again.  (Because I'm assuming he's still attempting a tackle?) She waited until he was almost upon her, and then reared upwards just as his passed over her back.  The sudden upward thrust would hopefully stun the larger male, because a sharp blow from her shoulder to his chin would, at the very least, be uncomfortable.  As she lept upward she twisted into him, making a grab for his left shoulder towards the elbow.  This put her head down, shoving mostly with her shoulder weight.  Regardless of anything else she would be pushing against his chest and lower neck as she shoved, and her lower center of gravity would mean she was the more stable of the two.  If she couldn't hit him on the chin or attack his leg, she would continue to shove forward and try and bowl him over.  What happened next all depended on that.

His limbs wrapped around her chest, but she did her best to ignore that, shoving with her lower center of gravity to push him off balance.  Since she was smaller, she reached to wrap her own paws around his belly, half bear-hugging him should she be successful.  This would add to her shoving power, and hopefully she would be able to shove him completely off balance.  Even if he went limp in her "arms" his angle combined with her would make it so she could hold him up or move him.  Her shoulder pressed against his chest, head down, feet spread for balance.  He may be heavier, but she was going to use technique on him.  The only way he would be able to force her down was to climb over her and put his entire weight on her back.

Since she ducked in for her charge, his bite landed further down than he probably would've liked.  Her hackles took most of the chomp, and Mercury gritted herself against the pain that burned through her nerves from the point of impact.  She remembered another not-so-distant time when her chest had felt that kind of pain, although more than this, and she had received her first battle wound.  If she was to receive another, so be it, but with how she was shoving him, he was going to have trouble keeping his head down and connected to her.  She would NOT give up.

Ugh, sorry to be a pain but can you do another diagram? I'm confused on how the positions look during her attacks. I just can't picture it and so I'm confused, plus I love your diagrams for visuals

I'm also confused because it says Mercury was "just beginning a sideways lunge towards him when he collided with her, if a bit off center." and if she's sideways lunging towards him wouldn't that mean she's moving closer to him ergo making the chest to shoulder hit more possible? I don't see how he hit her hindquarters unless she movedforward, since he's coming at her from the side, and yet she's side lunging towards him?

I dunno, it just sounds by your post that she barely landed her hind limbs and was about to move but then they collided, which indicates to me that she didn't move much let alone enough for him to go from shoulder area to hind area. :/

Also he's not attempting another tackle. If she surged forward, not towards him, then he'd attempt to tackle her hind part to the ground instead of the shoulder/chest. So he'd either go for the chest or the hind area depending on if she moved forward or not. Afterwards, if she dodged both somehow, he'd just stay on her but not make any new attacks just yet. I can post a list of his attacks if you want to save confusion.

I'll explain as best I can, but I'm on my tablet at work, so not diagrams ATM.

Mercury is still spinning when he charges her because you said he lunges as soon as she swings away from him. (I'll add quotes when I'm not on this thing) so when he goes to tackle her front it's still in motion. She lunges sideways because of her arc, which changes her position relative to him as he moves forward. The way I saw it was she had only spun about 110° instead of the complete 180°.

I got the first attack, the second I treated as a though he continued his second attack, since you didn't include a partial hit scenario.

Hmm it still confuses me because even if her body is still in motion I don't see how she moved enough to alter his attack to her chest to hind. Since I don't see how she can move that much while her hind limbs are in the air, land (in which case he'd already close the distance.), and be able to move enough to alter the attack. I'm willing to go with it I guess but I think my second attack, which he'd pretty much do if her rump was in her line of fire instead, should be acknowledged because he's attempting to grab and shove down, plus the hip bite if he got a hold of her waist area. I don't see the moment of the hit, especially when he's trying to grab and tackle downwards, sent her rolling a few feet away.

When I get home ill post my attacks to help you get a better understanding of them as well. If you could break them down for your post, and here on end, then I'd appreciate it because were confusing each other a bit. Like I'm confused on Mercurys series of attacks, order, posititon, and timing @.@

I'll diagram it later, probably tomorrow after work. I'm going out for my birthday tonight (replying on my phone atm) so I probably won't be able to get to it tonight.

Okay, not pretty or moving, but here ya go.



Figure 1: This is Merc at the point of swinging in for her tackle (as shown in the previous diagram)



Figure 2:  Blitz jumps backwards, Merc is still swinging inwards



Figure 3: Blitz begins his charge, at this point Merc has turned about 110° from her original position before entering the spin.  She is still, however, in motion and spinning to complete her 180°  At this point she would try to turn her body (which I am too lazy to draw, to come at him, but won't have time to completely adjust, so her haunches are still what is predominately exposed.



Figure 4:  The point of impact.  Because the majority of Mercury is still facing away from him due to her spin, he impacts with her hindquarters instead of her shoulders, which are now further through the arc than when he charged since she never stopped moving.  Even with her twisting to face him, the timing (as I read it) would not have given her time to completely face him, but her butt isn't facing him either.  She's more perpendicular in the hindquarters, and arcing not quite in a complete U to lunge at him.

I can edit to say he tried to grab her rump, but because she's still swinging and hasn't come to a stop yet I think he'd still end up shoving her more than completing a full grab. his paws would most likely push her rump outwards more (just as if his shoulder hit, and she's still spin away from him and go rolling.


Would you clarify exactly how

"he'd make sure to remain on her like white on rice.  Whichever way she moved, besides forward, he'd merely follow and act accordingly depending on how she'd attack next."
?

It was a little vague, and I assumed from that that he would just try and tackle her again.

Oh of course! Enjoy your special day sis ^_^

I'm just gonna post this for your convenience and to possibly air out any confusion
Blitzblade Attack 1 1/3 Combo: He would barrel towards towards her and ultimately attempted to tackle her to the ground, his chest area crashing against her shoulder area.
Blitzblade Attack 2/3 Combo: As soon as their bodies would collide Blitzblade would attempt to wrap his front limbs around her neck and chest
Blitzblade Attack 3/3 Combo: while, at the same time, snapping his large jaws around the side of the female's neck.
^Basically this is what he'd do if he'd gone for the chest area, which you're dodging with the "off center part" in your post. So don't mind this really, just convenience

Blitzblade Attack 2 1/2 Combo: If he was successful in bringing her down, the large brute would keep his hold on her neck and press his large body against her own in order to pin her and keep her down.
Blitzblade Attack 2 2/2 Combo: There wasn't much to be done besides lay on her until she admits defeat. If she didn't, sadly he would have to help her make that decision by thrashing his head lightly to cause pain. He, of course, had no intention on causing real harm, just enough pain for her to tap.
^This, too, is just for convenience. With the first attack dodged, this is technically nulled since he didn't bring her down chest first.

Blitzblade Alternate Attack 2: Therefore, instead of attempting to slam his chest against her shoulder area, he'd attempt to tackle her hind quarters in the same manner. He'd attempt to wrap his front limbs around her back end, almost in the mating position but obviously to the side of her and not directly behind, and take her down that way.
^This is what I think needs a little more acknowledged since her rump is in his line of fire vs her chest area, in which case this would happen. I guess I just don't see how he wasn't able to grab onto her rump, since he's reaching for it to take her down, he's not meaning to just ram her to send her flying into space. If she went down he'd follow with her for the pin

Blitzblade Attack 3: Whether he succeeded in bringing her down or not, but still had a hold, he'd aim to bite at her hip. Nothing to maim or cause permanent damage, since he wasn't aiming for anything vital, but just enough to cause pain.
^Like this says, it would only be attempted if her was able to wrap his limbs around her hips, regardless if he was able to actually bring her down or not.

Hope this helps a bit, as well as your diagram, let me know when you can. Enjoy your night!
