Yoshina's combat reflexes activated when she heard the whistling of arrows heading straight to the group. Quickly bringing her trusty steed into a nearby tree. A slight smile crept up from her face. The Princess dressed in a maid outfit knew that this would be her time to shine, a chance for battle in this new land, she knows that she is an ambassador of peace, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't like combat completely.
She wouldn't be a commander if she disliked combat in the first place.
Unfurling the cloth covering her Naginata. She crouched a bit, intent on examing her weapon first, the bladed edge of the weapon has not gone dull at all, fully reflective of her face, good, that's very much necessary considering the current situation. But then, she thought for a moment, would it be apt to use that
enchantment here? Perhaps not, the Bandits doesn't seem to be particularly threatening or that well armed.
She noticed the bandit creeping up to her from the bushes, pretending to not notice. She let the bandit crept up until the last second, where she twirled her Polearm, stabbing the man in the neck straight through. A simple trick of the hands and wrists she learned while training, always gets an unsuspecting aggressor quickly whenever she doesn't want to fight protractedly.
Standing up from her crouch, she walked calmly towards the site of combat, looking really out of place with her maid outfit, unsurprisingly drawing the attention of practically every bandit not preoccupied with Thaddeus, Shina, or the dragon. Swarms of men came to her at once. With the Sangakuan princess seemingly not caring despite the severity of the situation."Move 1, Great Sweeping Broom."
Her legs tightened, putting her into an immediate combat position. She then swung her Naginata around her, the timing of her strikes hit the first person closest to striking her, decapitating him, and then dismembering the one next to him, and then the other, and then the other.
It all happened in a flash, the Sangakuan Princess's moves was fast, almost like a lightning strike for anyone seeing her moves. She stood alone in a pile of dismembered and decapitated bandits, in one second, she looked like she was in danger, and quickly after that, she stood triumphant.
That didn't stop the remaining bandits from congregating onto her however. A veritable horde of them appeared in front of her. She counted 5, add 2 archers with crossbows already firing their bolts, combat reflexes made her dodge the crossbow bolts easily, and, seemingly distracted. One bandit moves in with a sweeping strike from her sword. Her sword carrying arm was cut off in a quick motion from Yoshina, quickly followed with a stab in the bandits' neck afterwards.
Leaving the female bandit to choke on her own blood, she walked at a leisurely pace, countering the moves from the bandits like water flowing down a river. Her strikes was fast and powerful, but never preemptive. A veritable ballerina on a battlefield so to speak. Graceful and Calm, yet ferocious whenever someone tries his/her luck with the fire of Sangaku herself.
Soon, the bandits quickly figured out what she's doing, and tried picking her off by signalling the crossbowmen to shoot her from the top of the trees. That proved to be their undoing since the Sangakuan Princess replied by leaping into their positions and slashing them one by one.
She dropped down, the bodies of the dead crossbowmen falling off of trees like a rainfall of blood. Somehow never hitting her dress. "Listen, you can try your luck and die here, or you can screw off and don't bother us ever again."
She told the remaining bandits trying to attack her. The group, seemingly reticent of her advice, with the fallen comrades behind her being more than enough motivation, quickly ran away.
She smiled, that was a good end to that group, and she quickly surveiled the rest. "Anyone here need help or something?"
The Princess asked, her normal demeanor quickly returning quickly despite the actions that she has taken.
