    "No dice!"
    "It's not your choice, demon."
    "He's a free agent," Melt said quickly as the creature thrashed and roared. "He has his free will, so he can do whatever he likes."
    "And a definite, DEFINITE no to going with you! I'm sticking around the kid, and that's final."
    "In that case..." Melt bit his lip. "Alright, new deal. How about... ah, screw it." He shrugged his shoulders, and turning his back on Tempo again, sprinted towards the demon with his arms raised. "Aleitra, get the girl out of here!"
    She stared after him, open-mouthed. "Since when did he become my superior?"
    "Not sure," Theiyll replied, "but are you going to just leave her here?" With that, he flew after his human with a despairing sigh.
    Aleitra turned to the stunned Seyre, before glaring at Tempo. "Just leave then! Nothing left for you here, beast."

    "Nah, I feel like watching. I'm just going to wait for the people summoning me and begging me to save them." She laughed loudly, "Some of them I will help; some of them I will just kill." She laughed rather loudly, again.

    "You see, unlike you people, I have no moral obligations to help the holy, or the infernal. If you all slaughter each other and no longer exist, this planet will be mine. Ripe for the taking. And with nobody to stop me, I will take it."

    She drew her holy weapon again, Gurahl glowing dangerously. "I will hew you to pieces before you touch another innocent soul, you craven worm!"

    Melt slowed to a stop, a safe distance from the creature. He could see a few others approaching, but the tumult of civilians pouring out of the slum like muddy water from a rotten bucket made it difficult to make anything else out, so he focused on the towering hellbeast as Theiyll caught up.
    "Hey..."
    "Hmm?"
    "Thanks for not selling me out."
    "No worries."
    "So, got a plan?"

    Melt cracked his knuckles, and stretched his calves a little. "This thing wants to eat magic, right? So we can draw it away if we give it something to chase."
    "Ahh, good thinking! So how do we - OH WAIT NO-!"
    Melt closed his eyes, and stretched his arms out, raising his hands like a conductor starting a concert.

    "Aethelm coaleverhe formillus reaorldin, accujhi essill appuire purunthus blithion hehlus tell me when it's looking at me inthi keest devurevanthelos yulving feal, corroach verrus notoal inore..."

    The spirit realm was usually visible to angels and demons, to the point where most of them barely considered it anything special rather than a special power. If an angel or demon had been watching, as Tempo was, they would have seen the Aether directly above Melt's head warp and coalesce, magic from Melt's body altering its makeup to make it seem like a banquet to the hungry demon about two hundred yards from their position.

    "Well. You can't actually stop me." She noticed what Melt was doing, "However, if you don't stop your friend over there, he's going to get you both killed."

    Assuming the holy person turned around, Tempo would take flight, watching from pretty far above.

    The beast sniffed at the air, It's body turning this way and that, before finally focusing on the growing mass of magic. It gave another bloodcurdling roar and dropped only all six of its limbs, crushing various makeshift structures at did.
    The creature bounded forwards at a speed that defied its size, crashing through buildings and their inhabitants, all ignored for the magic Mlet had concentrated above him.

    "IT'S LOOKING AT YOU IT'S LOOKING AT YOU IT'S LOOKING AT YOU IT'S LOOKING AT YOU IT'S LOOKING AT YOU IT'S -"
    "I KNOW I KNOW DEAR GOD ABOVE JUST GO ALREADY JUST BLOODY GO!"

    Aleitra had managed to dive out of the demon's path, dragging Seyre with her, before daring to take her eyes off Tempo to look back at Melt.

    What she saw, was a madman atop the most demonic unicycle in existence, pedaling furiously as fast as he could, eyes closed, still mumbling in his strange language as the unicycle steered itself deftly around various ruts and buildings as the monster pursued him. Her heart sank at the sight of the people trampled by the demon's rampage, but she knew that left to its own devices, it would have killed far more. This way, he could at least -
    She paused.
    What WAS he going to do? She looked back up at Tempo, remembering her part to play in all this. "You will not come near anyone!" she called, hoping she wasn't just looking like an idiot, before grabbing Seyre and hauling her up. "Find survivors, get them to safety. Stay on the solid ground."


    "Do you have a plan?!"
    "Erisindei kualth muntep NO I DON'T orthyke lolthnuf m'desc JUST KEEP PEDALING nour plefvux rouix..."
    "AAAAH!"

    The unicycle was far faster than any unicycle should have the right to be, but having magic coursing around it and through it gave Theiyll plenty to work with. It did, however, add his "flavor" to the swirling spiritual mass luring the beast closer and closer with every thudding step it too, and he trusted Melt wasn't just twitching randomly and was indeed trying to steer this thing through Light Vale's underbelly as he pushed onward, hoping to all the black devils there were that there were no speed bumps.

    "Blast it all, I don't think these people know how to deal with this thing...." Looking through his crystal facet he sees the carnage left in the wake of the beast.

    Richus stops where he is standing, seeing as how his gentle stroll would not manage to catch up to the speed of this beast who is going at the speed of... well One hell of a unicycle.

    "Ok so I only have 2 of these right now so if you are able to use one here you go, if not just ignore it." Richus summons forth two swords from the darkness around him. The swords shimmer as if they only exist as they are looked upon, Like they are caught in between wherever they were and here waiting for some one to grab one. Richus glances at Riley. "If you need a weapon this is the best I can offer you, that is if you are willing to fight."

    Richus has up until this point been visibly dripping with mana, but if you were to have noticed some before, there is none flowing off of his hands now.

    "These swords are called Soul Drinker, and Mana Sleeve. yes I know original and witty.... Anyways I have a few seconds to explain what they are before the portal opens up. I made these two swords on commission, they were intended to drain magic, Mana or health blah blah whatever you call it and instill it into the wielder. Well, due to some unforeseen complications the swords kind of.. well they did not work. I edited it, and well it will drain anything that it touches and deposit the energy into my mana bank instead of the wielders."

    The portal begins to open at the place Richus projects that the unicycle's path will lead the giant demon. To those who have paid attention, they would notice that the portal looks almost exactly like the warp viewing spell he used before.

    "lets hope we survive this" He seems to say to himself

    The portal finishes opening, and Richus steps through, "Come forth Argentum" A cluster of bones seem to shake their way out of the ground piling up, forming an egg tall enough to reach Richus height and then some. Richus steps into it and seems to meld with it, at the same time A form clad in silver white bone plate armor walks from the other side. As it exits the bone egg drifts back into the earths crust.

    Richus stands there for a moment before staring down at his own two hands stretching his fingers all the way out before clenching them into fists.

    Screams and destruction echo from the demons path pulling his attention from his own two extremities.

    "Okay" he says in a very serious tone while Staring at the destruction piling towards him the Helmets eye sockets instead of revealing any eyes seem to ebb infinitely into blackness.

    He pulls his right arm over and stretches it out, his hand seemingly reaching for something that is not there. The Cliche action of a spear pulling forth from the ground occurs only this time without any light show. He hefts up the spear and goes into a stance as if to throw it.

    OOT: I have no idea if Riley is still following me but if he is the portal is stable enough for him to follow. Also I assume I was on the wrong side of that demon so I had to teleport. Lastly to further indulge myself, the bones on the bone plate armor are large, smooth, and clean white.

    Tempo kiiiiinda just stayed afloat, slowly going backwards and away from the giant thing barreling towards them.

    OOT: If nothing changes, as soon as the demon beast enters his range Richus will throw the spear at the Demon beast. putting a force spell on the momentum of the spear as well as reinforcing it. Hopefully that will get the demon beast's attention.

    The monster pressed forwards, piling on as much speed as it was able. If is capable of more complex thought, it would have realised that the death in had left its wake would have fed it more than the orb of magicks that was now fleeing from it.
    But it wasn't. It saw the largest source of sustenance in the vicinity, and it wanted it.

    As Melt's lips moved, as his feet wildly pedaled and his hair blew in the near-blistering winds of the speeds he was going at, his mind raced even faster still. On top of maintaining the spell, he had to map out exactly where he was going.
    "ARE - WE - THERE - YET!?"
    "Veceil intire haeed NO KEEP BLOODY GOING sklik num beqour..."
    Theiyll regretted literally every turn in his millennia-long life that had led him to this point. Every. Single. One. Then when he skidded over some tarpaulin, his wheel wobbling, the beast still roaring directly behind him, he regretted that one too.

    The higher and more "classy" citizens of Light Vale were not fussy about where their refuse went. That, unfortunately, meant that the slums bore the brunt of the lack of funding for things like even roads, repairing buildings, no potholes... but the most important function of the slums was that it housed the bulk of the city's sewer system, and seeing the sewer rupturing earlier had brought Melt an idea.

    Those that worked in it called it Gloopyville. Those who lived near it called it Hell-Scent. Most, though, just called it the Vat. An enormous, fetid, rancid, foul, scummy stinking pool of feces, waste, and every other thing people didn't want to see again. This constantly swirling whirlpool of the most disgusting products of humanity occurred where all the sewers met, and people would rather go to prison than Gloopyville. And Melt was heading right for it - hoping furiously the stink wouldn't put the demon off the magical offering he'd produced.

    Aleitra looked over at the man who had teleported seemingly out of nowhere. He saw a young girl, barely twenty, long blonde hair braided in places, wearing what looked like a nun's habit mixed with a biker getup, holding a giant glowing black-handled silver-bladed war ax.
    "You should leave," she said urgently, looking over at where Seyre was helping up civilians. "It's not safe here." She looked up at Tempo again with a scowl. "For anyone."

    The head on the armor turns towards Alietra and says in a soft but stern voice "That is why I am here."
    As Alietra turns towards Tempo Richus summons his viewing crystal and scans for the demonic unicycler.

    What the demon left behind in his wake Richus did not intend to let go to waste the air grows colder, as all of the energy released by the dead and dying is captured by Richus. It was not targeted at just the newly dead, any energy seeping from anything was dragged towards him and consumed.

    He stops staring into the crystal and turns to Alietra and Tempo and with a slight bow towards them both he says in a polite voice "Excuse me miladies, But I am new to this town, Do either of you have any clue as to where your companion is leading that Beast?"
    The warping spell seemed to be moving to be behind him.

    OOT: In case any of you were saying it wrong in your head Richus is read "Rik-Us"

    The Beast continued after Melt into the Vat, slowly gaining on the energy it craved. It didn't real from the stench of the place, instead it revelled in it. The Vat reeked of decay, and the beast thrived off of such things.

    As neither of the women respond Richus turns towards the vast path of destruction and says "I guess I will just use my sleuthing techniques." He commands and causes the viewing crystal to race forward along the path until he finds the beast playing in what looks like mud.

    The space behind him seems to shatter and reform showing a space off to the side of the Beast. He of steps backwards into the crystal warp portal while giving a short wave to whoever was watching him.

    He turns quickly toward the beast who seemed to be playing in the whirlpool of filth. He says very loudly while looking at the giant demon beast, "You know If this was mud I might actually find you kind of adorable right now."

    As says those words, he readies his right arm which was still clutching the summoned spear, holding it up like a javelin.

    To be honest his skills at throwing spears and javelins were not anything to be wondered upon, in addition his strength was nothing spectacular in comparison to most any other human, so there was little reason and purpose behind this, he likely did it this way for theatric purposes only.

    He then shouted "Dun Bolt" as he threw the spear at the beast's side, it admittedly was a rather clumsy throw, but as soon as it got about two feet from his hand magic stored inside of it was released and flowed through it, amplifying the speed, and correcting the flight path for him. As soon as both effects were done, unlike before combat there was no energy loss in his spell work or his being.

    The spear struck the creature with great force, and while it didn't penetrate its armoured form, it did succeed in throwing the beast off balance.
    It bellowed, its entire body tilting sideways. careening into the Vat, impacting the far wall of the facility before falling into the sewage below.
    Due to its size, it didn't sink far into the muck. It flailed its limbs around wildly, desperately fighting for purchase to pull itself out, angered and panicked cries issuing from its fleshy maw.

    As he sees the beast fall into the pool, Richus begins to devour all of the mana that he can from the area nearby as well as reaching into his own reserves, he moves his right hand forward and says "Frore Anti Orbit"

    As he says this all of the heat in approximately a 40 meter radius around Richus drops(I believe that would put the effect well within the distance to freeze the beast and maybe even the entire Filth Pit), freezing everything to about a -20 degrees. The spell does not seem to target any citizen or stray animal but it does try to freeze the demon beast if it can.

    "Oh, thank the devil. Someone with more magic and brains than you came around," Theiyll remarked sourly as he patted himself down, back in his normal form. "Being a unicycle is just downright humiliating!"
    Melt could see his breath as he rubbed his arms for warmth on instinct, even though thanks to the spell, he wasn't cold. "I mean, hey, it got it away from innocent civilians, and it might get trapped down there."
    "We're only so lucky."
    "No optimism?"
    "Kid, I'm a demon. Optimism is for dumb-ass clerics, leprechauns, people who play the lottery and elected governments."
    Melt walked up to stand next to Richus, looking down at his attempted handiwork. "Okay, I... can't do that."
    "Maybe offer up some encouragement. Start cheerleading? I'll gladly turn into pompoms for that."
    He glared at Theiyll, sat on his shoulder like some unholy parrot. "Try turning into something I don't want to shut up."
    Theiyll just laughed, looking down at the thrashing beast. "Maybe a megaphone that says "HI I'M MELT I'M A TWAT PLEASE COME EAT ME" ?"
    "I said something I DON'T want to shut up."
    "Well, you certainly ACT like you have a death wish!"

    Tempo smirked at the attempt to subdue the beast, she raised her voice to the others with an almost playful tone, "Heeeeeee's not fiiiiinished yeeeeeet!"

    She flew higher, preparing for what was to come.

    Richus stood stoically still listening to Melt and Theiyll, watching the beast continue to move, beginning to escape it's icy bonds.
    The coldness in the air continued to permeate, not because the spell continued, its effects were done, but Richus was drawing all the energy he could get from every source he could, even the heat of the air was taken in and converted to be his own magical power, albeit in a much smaller radius than the spell.

    Tempo's words reached him. He turned his head to the two beside him*

    "Would you do me a favor?" Richus said while forcing open a slanted portal behind them which he promptly turned to, and stepped through . He appeared to have only moved 30 feet backwards. "Come here and make that sphere again." As he spoke the portal began to grow larger, until it was big enough for the demon beast to pass through.

    He just turned and stared at the beast waiting for it to break free and pounce at him through the portal. He held his hand out lightly to his side and a string of energy continuously poured from it connecting to the top of the portal powering it. It slacked down and hung curving its way towards Richus.

    "Also avoid the string."

    OOT: To clarify the portal is slanted Like so \ but at a 45 degree angle and still large enough for the demon beast to go through.
