Kishinami Hakuno


"Ah?!"

Hakuno raised an arm, eyes wide with alarm when the patient attacked. She had to knock them back with something, but her mind couldn't seem to conjure up the appropriate spell to use. This was a sick person being controlled, after all, what was even the appropriate level of force?! Thankfully, the patient was sudden;y restrained by... snakes? She stared in confusion for a moment, before their saviour arrived. Hakuno wasn't familiar with this person in particular, but his demeanour, strange mask, and vague memories of Servant lists gave her a strong guess of who it was.

"...We'll go that way, then," Hakuno suggested to Jason and Kiara, nodding towards the alternate route. She turned her gaze to the doctor and gave a quick bow, "thank you for your assistance. Please be careful, Saber is currently fending off the perpetrator."

With that, the young Master hurried to lead the other two to safety. As she hurried to take point, a worrying thought was gnawing away at her. It was one thing for that fake Kiara to act as if they were acquainted in any way... maybe she was just imagining it, but those patients all seemed focused on her too. It creeped out her out; it was like that fake Kiara herself was using them just to observe her or something!

Whether they had met in any capacity or not, though, she was growing increasingly concerned that Kiara wanted her. Or was only looking to kill her off, which would still suck a lot, but either way it filled her with dread.

----------------------

Berserker - "Guan Yu"


"Berserker..."

"I... I am fine, Master...!"

The icy ghoul growled as she stood protectively before her Master. During the chaotic battle, she had managed to shield her Master from every blow thrown their way. Oftentimes with her body, rather than the guandao, but that was a small price to pay. Her armour had deflected everything with no issue at all, and she had slain plenty of those shadowy Servants, to the point her frozen blade almost seemed to thrum with life as the crimson liquid coated it.

Yet Guan's master could tell she was having difficulty. Her movement had gotten faster - perhaps thanks to another Master or even a Servant skill - but Guan herself was not the accomplished fighter her father was. She had plenty of power, and a decent sense of battle, but her relative lack of experience in warfare, as well as her nature as a Berserker, made it more difficult for Guan to fight calmly. Maybe that was why she was ignoring the scratches blemishing her armour, the bruising her body had taken from blunt strikes, the blood running down one eye, thanks to a strike her helmet didn't fully protect from...

Guan downed another enemy, piercing the shadow's chest with her blade, and messily extracting it before leaping back. Now that they were gathered in the centre of the Arena, she could better defend her Master! With the other Servants here too, this battle would be easily won-

Even Guan had frozen in place when the dragon emerged, almost awed by its' presence. It, like the strange Servants, was a mere shadow, but it wasn't often you got to see such a terrifying creature before you. A mere imitation Servant like herself was surely nothing to it.
Her Master yelled out a warning, and Guan quickly ducked her head to the side, avoiding a fatal thrust of the shadow's Servant. Beore it could recover and escape, she grabbed the outstretched arm, threw her opponent to the ground, and stomped her foot onto it's chest. Even as it slowly started to freeze over, Guan quickly brought the guandao down on the shadow's head.

She may not be as amazing as her father, but the weapon in her hands... as despicable as its' current state was, it was still far more of a dragon than that fake! Even if her help was limited, Guan could at least use her Noble Phantasm to keep the rest of the Shadows at bay, and let the real dragonslayers focus on the bigger threat!
This strange, scaled girl was certainly making quite an impression to Kamiko, who had already written her off as someone unfit for sparring against. Unfortunate, but considering the kind of people that rained from the sky alongside her, she probably didn't have to worry too much about worthy partners. Even as the sword saint lamented Lila's presumed weakness, she at least had to admit that Lila was cute in her eagerness to impress. If the snake girl's actions were any indication though, Lila was unlikely to remain pure by the end of the day, so she might as well sneak her question in before that happened.

"I would be interested in these challenges," Kamiko replied with a small smile. Her hand came to rest on the hilt of her standard katana, drumming her fingers against it, "if there's someone strong enough to withstand my blade... do I have your word that such a person exists in this world?"

It would be a terrible shame to visit a completely foreign world, only to find she was just as unmatched here, after all.
Kishinami Hakuno


The news delivered over the radio was the exact opposite of what Hakuno had expected to hear. She came to a stunned stop as she stared at the device in her shaking hand, eyes wide. Slowly, she raised it closer to her mouth and spoke in a shaking voice, "...Sorry, I-I think I misheard. Dozens dead?"

How could that even be possible? What was happening over there for that death toll to still be rising? Weren't there a lot of Servants that should have been more than capable of taking on any threat? Was it the fake Kiara's doing? What was happening in Fusang?
That shadow Servant she had summoned in the hospital room... the scene that she had been watching as they arrived... was it more of those fake Servants? Just how many had that monster summoned, under everyone's noses? Had she failed to protect everyone that badly?

Anger and frustration broiled within Hakuno, tightly gripping the radio as she tried to make sense of everything. She had to keep cool. Losing her mind now would only upset Jason and the real Kiara. She had to keep her head and at least get those two to safety. And find some way to help Saber.

"...Let's go," Hakuno muttered, resuming the retreat to the lobby. However, several patients barred their way, acting worryingly strange, "Um, excuse me, but there's an emergenc...y..."
The way they looked at Hakuno's group... they weren't all there. And seemed ready to attack. This was incredibly problematic for several reasons. Hakuno could hardly count herself as a combatant; she was much better at blending into the background and slipping away before someone noticed, but against an actual opponent, her options were limited.

And her few options were well and truly neutered when it was unwilling, sick puppets opposing her.

"...Let's take the wrong way round," Hakuno suggested, eyes on the group as she willed the other two to back off.
Kishinami Hakuno


That fake Kiara truly was awful. Even as they fled, she just had to torment Jason further with that voice. As terrifying as that monster was, Hakuno could feel anger welling within her as she dragged the poor guy away with her. What was she getting out of this?! It was all sick, demented, twisted. She couldn't be allowed to do as she pleased any longer.

The other Kiara had launched an attack at the retreating group, forcing Benienma to break off her bout in order to protect them. Her skill was flawless and - in any other circumstance - beautiful to behold. Unfortunately, it only reinforced their predicament. If Saber had to protect them from the fake Kiara, she was going to get hurt by that strange Hijikata shadow sooner or later. Once they were out of the way, the small Servant could go all-out... but that still left her in a 2 Vs 1 situation.
Hakuno bit her lip in frustration as she ushered the others out with her. If she were even a halfway competent magus, she could at least distract that monster and let Benienma focus on her battle. As-is though, this was all she could do. Quickly raising her hand, Hakuno focused her magic into her palm, sharing as much of it as she could with the diminutive sparrow before she finally fled the room.

"Let's get to the lobby!" Hakuno said, grabbing the radio at her hip. The further they were from that room, the better. With the radio crackling to life, the young master called for help, "HQ, this is Kishinami! Situation at Fusang Hospital, Saber is engaging with an unknown enenmy and a strange Servant! Backup please, over!"

Kishinami Hakuno


How had today devolved into such a gruesome nightmare so quickly?

Hakuno thought she'd been prepared for the worst-case scenario when they visited Mary's room. Perhaps a Servant had been impersonating her for some reason, but the real Mary was still safe somewhere? Maybe this was the real Mary after all, in urgent need of help. If this girl turned out to be hostile, it wasn't something out of her depth as a member of CCF, right? But this...

Saber had acted swiftly, striking down the strange hands erupting from underneath the hospital bed before she could even blink. The floor was littered with blood and flesh now, but that was hardly what made Hakuno want to retch. The very air itself was heavy with a presence of pure, foreboding evil, enough to make Hakuno want to just flee. But even that wasn't what got to her. No, it was when Mary... when the girl seemed to just pull another person entirely out of her mouth. Or... would it be more accurate to say that this woman clawed herself out?

Hakuno's eyes were wide, her body frozen as she tried to understand what that woman was saying. Tried to comprehend who was there before her. Why... why did this woman... this creature look like Sessyoin Kiara?! She forced her eyes to move, as if to confirm that the woman at her side was still there. It... it was another trick, right? Whoever this person was, they impersonated Mary, and now they're using Kiara's appearance to rattle them, right...?

Still, Hakuno couldn't speak. Her face had paled, a hand over her mouth as she stood in place. Jason asked Kiara... the other Kiara where Mary was, and... no, she refused to accept that answer. That had to be a lie! But before the young Master could press her on it, the imposter's words confused her. As if they had met before. But... Hakuno had only known the real Kiara for a couple of days, and Benienma was the only partner Hakuno ever had. Was it mistaken identity? No, she couldn't ponder on this issue, it didn't matter at all. They had to capture this woman immediately.

"Saber." Hakuno's voice shook, but she tried not to let that show in her demeanour. With that one word, Hakuno communicated to her Servant what had to be done: Subdue the fake Kiara. Her hands clenched tightly as she tried to control the shaking. She was an officer of the CCF. That meant she had to take charge somehow, and get the other two to safety. Kiara was doing something strange, causing shadows to appear, and one of them was emerging to fight, it seemed. They were just like the strange shadow the fake Kiara had been watching a moment ago.

"...We have to go," Hakuno placed a hand on Jason's shoulder, urging him to stand, "let Saber deal with this, we need to get out of the way!"

The shadow, apparently based on Hijitaka... even if it weren't as powerful as the actual Servant, it would be a horrible idea to be anywhere near it right now. Benienma needed the space and ease of mind to fight at her best without having to divert her attention.

-----------------------

Berserker - "Guan Yu"


Guan landed on her feet with a sense of elation, watching Gareth roll some distance away. Her strike had knocked the knight down, and broken her charge! She grinned underneath the helm, hands trembling with joy at the bout. She had taken a more defensive stance now, and Berserker's confidence swelled. Surely she could break through, now that the momentum was gone! She took one step forward, and then hell descended upon them.

The sounds of the crowd changed drastically. Chiron's announcement echoed, forcing the young warrior to ignore her need to fight. Assailants were wreaking havoc on the citizens, spilling blood. Horror erupted in the icy figure's chest, and she immediately turned, towards the seats her Master should be sitting. Those shadowy things were already closing in on her location...!
Guan felt a pull, as mana pulsed through her body. She understood instinctively what this was, and leapt forward, the guandao wound back over her shoulder. When she swung it down, the blade cleaved through one of the hostiles, cutting it in half. Blood soaked the frozen blade, instantly freezing in place.

Guan's Master had used a Command Seal in a panic, calling her to the stands instantly. It was fortunate she had, as it let Guan save her, and a few others nearby. With a furious roar, she swung the blade at another shadow, forcing it to leap back, although she still managed to wound its face. Compared to a Servant, these didn't feel as powerful, but if they gathered together, it could be tricky...

"Worry not, Master," Guan growled, watching for any more attacks, "I won't let any harm come to you!"
She thrust her bloodied blade at another shadow.




One by one, the falling figures were reaching the ground, all pretty much unscathed. That was fortunate, Kamiko figured. Despite standing atop a massive serpent, she felt no particular danger in this situation. Given how her landing had been softened by an outside force, the fall hadn't been intended to hurt any of them. Besides, the ice bombs weren't thrown anywhere near the head, so no need to defend herself from the panicking child.

"Ah," Kamiko let out a soft utterance as the snake lowered itself to the ground, and began to shrink. She hopped off the head, and turned to see the massive creature had become a young, albino girl. Who immediately rushed over to a young woman who had fallen from some bushes and began touching her in strange ways. Kamiko tilted her head, watching the scene in mild bemusement before approaching. The lizard-like girl currently being... assisted by the albino snake was clearly preoccupied, so Kamiko struck up a conversation with another young woman that was apparently with the dragon.

"Oh, you were falling as well, huh? I guess we're in the same boat, more or less."
Sheer boredom had led Kamiko to circle an answer on that strange note. She hadn't even considered if it were a strange prank from a colleague or student. Maybe she just chose that single moment to vent her frustration, and now here she was. For everyone else, was it the same situation? As far as she could assess from a glance, no one else seemed to be strong as a fighter...

@VitaVitaAR@Rin
Kishinami Hakuno


Hakuno's eyes widened with realisation at Saber's declaration. Her own comment about two Mary's hadn't been entirely serious, but if Servants were involved... yes, it wasn't exactly impossible for the Mary in hospital to be an impostor, was it? Hakuno hadn't noticed anything particularly off with her, before, but...
It was decided that everyone would return to visit her, and the young officer agreed uneasily. A part of her hoped this hypothesis was wrong - if that Mary in hopsital was a Servant or whatever, what had happened to the real Mary?

Not long after, the group had entered Mary's room. Hakuno was briefly distracted by whatever Mary was watching, but she couldn't dwell on what she saw - right now, they had to investigate Mary's circumstances. She tried to discern for herself if anything was off about the girl, but of course nothing stood out to her in particular. Kiara, on the other hand, definitely felt something amiss. She heaved a small sigh, and spoke up.

"...Please, tell us," she said softly, banking on their hypothesis being correct, "where is Saikawa Mary? Why are you impersonating her?"

Berserker - "Guan Yu"


The small, heavily-armoured girl was making her move, and despite the simplicity of her charge, it was undoubtedly perfect. Her large shield and the lance made a head-on attack virtually impossible. The slight influence of Mad Enhancement certainly made such a tactic appealing to the icy spectre, but the skill would not encumber her common sense in any meaningful way. Perhaps.

Berserker charged forward, as if to collide with the advancing Gareth. Against that towering shield and spiralling lance, surely she had no hope of winning this clash? Her only advantage was size, but Gareth's position was far too great to be beaten with a mere frontal assault. Even if Frost Fair's full functionality was available to her, it may not be enough.
Guan was not a warrior with honed battle instincts, however - she was a pale imitation of the true god of war, and thus lacked the strength to properly counter this attack. All she could do... was avoid the attack entirely. Barely a second before Gareth could bowl her over, Guan suddenly leaped, arcing over Gareth, twisting her body and swinging the frozen guandao down to strike Gareth from above and behind. It certainly wasn't a graceful combat manoeuvre, but as long as it could score a strike on a knight of the round table...!

@VitaVitaAR@PKMNB0Y
"Oh."

Kamiko's surprised exclamation was lost to the winds as she found herself falling from a great height. It was so sudden, she'd barely answered that strange invitation before finding herself in this predicament. She couldn't deny the thrilling sense of danger filling her, but the young Sword Saint showed no fear beyond the initial shock. A fall from this height may be lethal, but only if she failed to make a proper landing.

Several others seemed to be in the same boat as her, but she could hardly worry about them for the moment. Her own safety came first. Kamiko shifted her body, bracing for impact, when she noticed a large serpent merge... no, it was one of her impromptu skydiving companions? That was certainly unexpected, but she saw an opportunity arise. The serpent was directly beneath her, crashing to the earth below. It's body had to be slightly softer as a landing point, and given how big it was...

Luckily however, something slowed her descent before she crashed into the giant serpent. Her body felt light as the surprised warrior righted her posture once more. She came to a soft landing atop the serpent's head, surveying the forest from her perch. Despite standing on top of what could very well be a hostile monster, in a foreign land she just fell into from the sky, her hand was only loosely resting on the grip of her katana - the non-cursed blade.

"...How fortunate. I didn't have to risk breaking a leg..." she murmured to herself, and watched the rest of the falling figures fall to the earth.
