Hillview High - Mason Square.
The blade pierced though Scott cleanly. If there wasn't a wall in the way, the blade would have went completely through him. He slammed a fist against the wall, and tried to struggle... but his muscles deflated. Eyes stopped glowing, and the power that had once made him a beast was slowly leaving. Feeling as if it was forcibly taken from him, it appeared to the Awakened that he was merely shrinking. Reverting back to his original appearance as a scrawny teen... and tears were raining from his cheeks.

The best way to describe this was that it was comparable to static of a TV-screen that was constantly glitching. The creature's mass seemed to take strange appearances from time to time. Shifting from grass, to maybe stain glass, to even human flesh, back to blackness. It was almost like this thing was so wrong
