Interactions: Nakamura Yui (@Burger)
While he wouldn't have much time for a proper test drive of Yui's sword on his hands, Raphel was thankful that he still had the potential opportunity to get a few swings in before everyone was to answer the call back to base. He grabbed the sword by the hilt as Yui pushed it towards him, but was sent down to one knee as the sheer weight of the weapon had caught him off-guard. Considering his psychic prowess had a greater aptitude towards speed as opposed to strength, that was to be expected. Raphel used his right shoulder to adjust the position of his glasses, ensuring that he had both hands firmly on the grip of the sword before attempting to stand back up.
'Excalibur, huh?' he noted as he made a valiant, and surprisingly successful effort to get back on his feet, 'How fitting...'
After a large inhale of breath, Raphel put all the strength he had into a single, quick slash. It was very low to the ground, just barely having enough clearance to not actually leave a scratch on the earth like it looked to. There was only one assessment to make.
"This may very well be me not possessing the necessary strength, but to say that this is unwieldy would be a severe understatement." he told Yui as he carefully returned to sword to its rightful owner, "You must have quite the high level of psychic energy in order to utilize it as fluidly as you had. For that, you have my respect."
