Zouyu was lightly kicking his feet back and forth, gleefully watching the hunters do their thing as he approached while keeping pace with Kaldorna's mount. His ears perked up as he listened to Kaldorna's explanation, eyes shining with amazement at the idea of one person fighting that many high level monsters at once. But then, the heartbreak part came up. He'd never personally been given the privilege to see the fights that had taken place within the Climax Hour, but he had always been assured that it was beautiful to behold. One time, Yaoishisaurus even told him all about the time that a stray magic blast nearly took her head off, before Loss, and Kiss My Axe intercepted. It all sounded so...insanely cool!"Why is it heartbreaking?"
Zouyu would ask, scratching the side of his face as he pondered. Rodias was strong, stronger than anybody in the guild so...why did he still fight like someone on his standing was behind him to help?
Zouyu's peanut sized brain wouldn't have time to consider all the possibilities though as Kaldorna ordered for him to go on the offensive. Well, limited offense. They didn't need the thing dead. Plunging his hands into the earth, Zouyu would cry out: "[Fifth Tier Magic: Wall of Stone!]"
before a gargantuan block of rock and mud emerged to corral the mammoth-like beast, just as Nightshade blinded it. But...it seemed that he'd either slipped up, or not counted on the beast charging dead ahead.
A sneer crawled across Zouyu's usual calm and gentle face, teeth gnashing together as he reactively sensed the killing intent of a fellow beast, before he would stand up, hands swirling with arcane winds. "Know your place, trash,"
the Gardener would say, lightning swirling around his forehead, and wind swirling around his arms and legs. He seemed especially enraged at the idea of a beast challenging not only himself, but Kaldorna. In an instant, Zouyu's fist would dive into the earth, claw splaying out in the dirt as magic swelled forth. "[Sixth Tier Magic: Bones of the Earth!]"
he would cry out, before fifty foot pillars of bones encased the mammoth, as if it were surrounded entirely by ribs, the beast's thrashings and beatings mimicking the sound of a heartbeat thudding against one's chest faster and faster, before Zouyu would return to his gentle expression."[First Tier Magic: Entangle! First Tier Magic: Giant's Jump!"
he would say, as a tremendous amount of vines started binding the mammoth within the cage, the Giant's Jump spell causing Zouyu to pounce over seventy feet in the air, before he landed on the mammoth's head. Exhausted and blinded, the beast was unable to resist as Zouyu bound leather and vines around its tusks, making it into a makeshift reign as he waved to Kaldorna. "Kaldornaaaaa~! Its ready to be made your pet!"
he cried out, adding in: "Good work everyone! You all made it too weak to break the bones!"
to make sure that all knew he wasn't trying to steal anybody's thunder.
