Yui's first shot sounded the real start of the battle the Snake-man hit was easily killed and the shot itself put a bit of fear into the rest this allowed for the Irregulars to swarm in and nearly annihilate the group. Her second shot although not exactly an immediate kill shot but it hit the beast in the lower abdomen dropping it from the pillar, Luckily it was meet by one of Shion's arrows as the beast tried to get back up after its shot. Her third shot came with about the same effectiveness her shot veered off to the side striking the snake-man in the shoulder and literally disarming it. A feat which was quickly followed up by Stephan taking his knife to the wounded Creature's neck and quickly dropping it.
The battle was progressing quickly Alm had been in the clash and although he hadn't gotten a good hit in yet he had been helping as he could. As things started to slow down he noticed Octavia off to the side crouched down, and he noticed one of the Archers had seen this as well and was moving in for the kill. HE quickly made his move breaking off from the main combat to intercept the archer. As its blade started to drop down on her it was caught by Alm's own blade knocking it up. Luckily he had made it on time and after his flailing attempt to deflect the Snake-man's blade he used his momentum to ram the snake dropping his shoulder into the creature's face. This move sent the snake man sprawling on the floor and before it could get back up it was Torched by Gwen who seemed to also had noticed and moved to help the young girl. "She can't stay in here. Get her out now.
" Gwen commanded and Alm didn't question. He quickly scooped up Octavia and started to rush the girl outside followed by Gwen watching and providing support as the three retreated.
Jing and Allant worked together to slay the final warrior and Sybille had turned the final Archer into a pincushion with shards of ice. As the battle drew to a close Jing turned is attention to the knight and the giant who had joined in at the start of the battle. He lowered his weapon, but not his guard as he faced the two newcomers. "Thanks for the help, although I don't know if we needed it all that much. What brings the two of you out this far into the desert?
" He asked while giving the signal for the rest of them to return to their work before the Snake-men attacked the group. But with the intimidate scene of danger removed things were a little easier. Allant and Shion went to remove the corpses of the humans and Stephan started to check the Snake-Men's bodies giving each of them a quick stab to ensure they were dead before searching for anything of value. Sybille stayed next to Jing prepared to use her magic if the two newcomers proved to be a threat.
After getting Octavia outside Alm set the girl down in a shaded area of the entrance. "This should be better. What happened to you in there anyway?
" Alm asked concerned for the girl, It was never a good sign when a team member became incapacitated in combat but before Alm could get his answer Gwen had caught up and shooed him away. Once Alm was away Gwen turned to Octavia. "I didn't realize before just how serious your condition was. It seems we may have to take some more serious measures here.
" She said to Octavia talking more to herself than to Octavia. "Well little one how are you feeling outside the tomb did the voices quiet?
" She asked starting to think over her next moves to help Octavia.
