Tristan turned to see an elf woman standing outside the ring of debris. "You could say that." Was his deep voiced reply. His tone wasn't as cold as usual due to his excessive good mood. He patted himself off as some of the bits and peices of burned or hacked wood landed on him.
"I guess so...Crazy basterd he is, dodged almost every thing I threw at him. Fight was interuppted by some idiot with a half assed summon though." He said recalling the match. He finished brushing himself off, which proved iritating with his gauntlets. "Tristan Knightrhode." He introduced himself, holding out the huge hand that, because of the gauntlet, would even over shadow a good portion of the orcs.

Maybe the two of you could have a rematch, then? If Roy ever wants to defeat the demon plauging his hometown, he must becom stronger. The Seer's blood is strong on my sister's side of the family, and somehow, his human blood strengthens it. I have tried my best to foresee how he will fare against the demon, but he fails, if he doesn't become stronger.
She let out a small sigh, and continued with her speech.
He weilds great power, in both that holy spear on his back, and the elements flowing within him. He is afraid of his own potential. Will you help him?
-----------------------Roy Atenwood: Oracle for Hire------------------
Roy was as happy as he had been on the day that a girl named Mint had treated him like a normal human, instead of a half-blooded freak.
Inga Teo....would you please help me?
"Yes Stonewater. What do you need. Is it about Grench?"
Yes....I think I am in love with her...but she has noticed your friend...the tall human.
"Let me look.......heh....you have nothing to worry about. It's a misunderstanding. She only wants to spar with him, because he's big for a human. She...hmmm....I can't exaclty see how she feels about you.....you'll have to do that on your own."
A wide grin spread on Stonewater's face, showing teeth along with tusks, and he got up from the table.

Tristan listened to Roy's aunt. He chuckled to himself about the human blood strengthening the seer's abilities. "I kinda figured he was a half breed...for some reason they're always stronger than pure blood. Someone once said, 'Human beings have great potential, they just don't realize it past their greed and self doubt'." He went mystic on the short elven woman for a moment, then returned to his usual swagger.
"Heh...Yea sure. This new Kamataichi spell will work well against him despite his wind element." He said, balling up a small spherical vortex of air in his hand. "I'll force him to his potential if I have to." His voice flickered the cold tone for a moment, but there was no hint of it on his face. "Well...I'll go back to him now then, Bye." Tristan finished before crouching low. He used an extra flicker of air element to send him soaring a good fifty feet into the air, as well as used it to cushon his landing, a few meters away from the hut Roy was in, though the hunter didn't know it. "ROY!!"

Damnit...why did she tell him that? It's not his problem, and she knows it as well as he does.......
Roy had seen the entire conversation through the Crystal Ball, and smiled. Knight got the hang of things fast, although he still wasn't non-verbal yet. He would be casting the spell non-verbaly by the end of the day.
He was outside before Knight had scramed ihs name, and had already placed the holy black spear against a tree. He wouldn't be using it, as he could barely draw out its power, and he would be sparring with a friend.
As he walked toward the general area Knight had yelled from, he unleahed the heavy iron spear, laughing.
"I'm afraid I won't be much of a challenge for you, but I'll give it my all."

Tristan, spotting Roy, clapped his hands together. "You give your self too little credit. You never know what your capible of till your at your limit." He pulled his hands apart and the gauntlets glowed with his alchemy. "Take that worm for example...I didn't know I could pull off such a powerful attack." He took a light stance and readied himself.
His hands were in tight fists, and the fourteen inch blades gleamed in the sunlight. A few orcs and elves gathered to watch the match. They apparently liked to see a good fight now and then. "Ikuze." Igneus flew from the hunters shoulder and landed on the roof of a nearby hut.

Alright.......I can't parry fast enough with this spear......I'm going unarmed.
Roy walked outside the gathered orcs, and leaned his still etended spear against a tree. It was just too heavy to use against Knight. He would be hit before he could initiate a single strike with it. He left his dagger behind as well, deciding to go fully unarmed.
As Roy took a stance, he smirked. Knight had learned a new trick, and would almost certainly use it against him. This would be fun.

"Eh?" He said, watching Roy go off. He broke his stance and stood waiting. When Roy came back unarmed, "You rat basterd...Make me waste my energy with alchemy." He grumbled, he wasn't about to use his gauntlet blades against someone unnarmed, and who he wasn't trying to kill. He clapped his hands together again and the blades receeded with blue lightning.
Tristan then grabbed the leather strap of his sword sheath and pulled it from his chest. He slipped the blade off and hurled it, holster and all, into a nearby tree where it stuck deep in the flesh. "Alright." He said, he was lighter now, and less armor laden. As such he was faster, not by much, but every little bit helps.
He shot forward at full blast, though it was still a bit slower than Roy's speed. He came in quick with a light jab with the right. It was a feint, but an attacking feint. The attack hid a quick shot with his left foot, heavy boot and all. Then a hard left hook should he still be there.

"Here we go......"
Tristan rushed Roy at a decent clip, as Roy decided to forego using his Second Sight. He would only use it if he had to, because of the "Double Time" spell.
Roy saw his "Attacking Feint", and used a forearm to block it, as he raised his own foot, and planted it onto the bottom of Knight's. Pushing off, he jumped about 10 feet backwards, and made his own rush at Knight.
When he got withing range, he had an idea, a burst ogf inspiration, if you will. He extended his left hand, and spoke the incantation of his basic stunning spell.
The wide rang was nearly inescapable, coupled with the fact that the spell was invisible to the untrained eye, meaning you could only see it if you happened to be a Seer.
As he cast that, he saw the swirling wall of energy headed outward, in a Ten foot by Ten foot square, that actually WIDENED as it moved.
Roy rushed in,. and attemped to deliver a combination of ten punches, alternating left and right hands, followed by a kick to the gut.

Tristan heard the spell, but didn't see any thing. His eyes scanned the area, as did the rest of his senses...nothing. WALL OF ENERGY...TEN FEET HIGH, MOVE!! Ya gotta love dragons. Tristan heard the warning and leaped up and forward. His foot touched the energy wall and he felt a jolt before his left foot went numb.
The hunter landed with mainly his right foot a few yards behind Roy. "Damn..." The small ammount of impact on the wall was already beginning to wear off, but he would have to watch out for that attack. He stood, foot still numb on the surface but enough feeling by the bone to move. Tristan shot toward Roy a good deal slower than before, and he would be like that untill the rest of the numbess wore off. Another distracter right jab, followed by a hard knee in the lower ribs. If that knee hit Roy would get a hammer fist on the top of the head with Tristan's armored left hand.

Tristan's agility was improved greatly, even having only his sword off his back. The hunter flipped himself around to stand on his armored hands. He kicked up, matching Roy's foot with his own, and sending the half-elf soaring skyward. If Tristan had Shireiutz with him, he couldn't have pulled off something even close to this breakdance style move.
The crusnik then whirled about on his hands and pushed off, whirling himself straight up, upside down. "KAMATAICHI!!" He yelled, whirling out his hands. Three thick blades of almost solid air whirled after Roy at insane speeds. He was whirled right side up, and landed on his feet. "IGNITE." He shouted when the blades reached the half elf. Even if Roy managed to avoid the blades, he wouldn't avoid this.
The three blades glowed bright as Tristan's fire elemental appeared within the ultra high pressure air of the Sickling wind spell. Each one exploded with massive force that was tripled by the fact that there were three blades. It was a brilliant sight that was only turned sour by the fact that Roy would be in the thick of it. Tristan didn't care how immune to fire Roy was, that would hurt like hell...it would even cause Igneus a good bit of damage.

Tristan stood, tapping on the side of his head to settle the water in his ears and restore his equilibrium. "Holy shit...That really is strong." He said, forgoeing standing until his balance returned, and taking a knee. Roy's aunt screamed and ran to his side. "He should be fine, he wasn't hit by the Kamitaichi directly, and he's immune to fire...More or less." He told her though she didn't seem convinced until she saw that he was still breathing.
Stonewater stood, tusked jaw slightly agape. He was surprised at the power Tristan or 'the tall one' generated, and that Roy, the one who had beaten him and several other orc fighters, had been taken down by a human who didn't even have full control over his elments. Grenchka Was surprised for a moment, but the broke out in a raucous laughter. Looks like I'm buying dinner! She shouted at Stonewater.
She walked over to Tristan and patted him on the back roughly, Well done tall one! Was her shout to the victor. Tristan shook under the blows, not bothering to waste energy resisting it. "I think I overdid it despite the fact." He said in reply, standing and testing his balance. Satisfied that he could walk, he cracked his neck and walked over to his sword. With a good bit of effort, he wrenched it free.
He slung it over his back, and pushed his glasses up onto his nose. The hunter walked back over to Roy, picked him up over his right shoulder, and had his aunt direct him to a place Roy could rest. Tristan plopped the boy on a bed of sorts and sat in a chair on the opposite side of the room having leaned his sword against the wall.

Tristan woke up from a half assed nap he was taking on the chair. His eyes locked onto Roy who had shot straight up. The hunter followed the boys gaze out the window and took note of the suns position. "Well shit...What was it about?" He said somewhat groggily before rubbing his eyes on his sleeve and realizing what time it was.
Only about noon. The two hadn't been out long, about four hours max. Tristan stood up, stretched, and popped his neck and back. "Remind me to not sleep in chairs any more." He said half assedly. [Where are you?] He called out to Igneus when he remembered the tiny black dragon. Fending off some dogish thing of one of the locals....Iritating basterd. Tristan chuckled at the dragons blight and picked up his sword. Then he waited to hear what Roy had to say about his premonition before deciding on what to do next.
