The meadows were never the same, since the school was attacked. Sections were charred, debris lay about and few would even linger near the place after all that had occurred. Yet Takeshi was ready. His home was gone, burned and wasted, and the forces that caused such turmoil were still loose.

He'd gathered his army, gathered his friends. It was here that he was waiting for the final act, this time not alone. He'd gathered friends to this fight. "Ok.. Lets get started."

He walked towards the others, "Everyone ready? I fear that we don't have long now."

Tiberius stood up, "Is it time to fight yet? We gonna crush some skulls? Maybe get some stuff to sell..."

Takeshi glared at the younger guy, a strange nut who had volunteered to fight for the sake of fighting. "What? I'm just saying. If we're fighting stuff that might have some rare stuff, we should totally keep it."

"Man, I really wish Hayate would get here... Kath, is everyone else ready?"

Takeshi looked over at the rest of the group. Pulling his robe off, he started to pull around his rune pouch. Slowly and carefully chipping away the blood from the runes. Closure was coming, but was Takeshi ready for it?

Kath inspected the meadows, he remembered them as they were. Soft, serene... beautiful. Now there was nothing left but ash. It sent a chill up Kath's spine. "Ok.. Lets get started." Kath shook his head, he supposed if there was any place to pick for a battleground this would certainly qualify. He wondered though, even if all that were left here were ashes, did that mean that it was truly destroyed? Or would tarnishing the good memories here by spilling more blood be the final act in its destruction?

Kath knelt down picking up a fist full charred earth, he churned it in his palm quietly trying to keep the smell from getting to him. It clawed at his nose, burrowing into his brain. He couldn't help but think how many people had already died here.

"Man, I really wish Hayate would get here... Kath, is everyone else ready?"
It was funny but Kath wanted anything to spare Sara from having to come back here. She knew people who had died in the explosion, in fact she had almost lost herself in it. A near miss Kath was grateful for. Still, Kath nodded, everyone here was set. He looked over at Jen and Yoko, both of which were getting a handle of the area. By the looks of it either they had never been here, or simply knew how to hide their emotions.

Jen had a sucker in her mouth and was playing on her tablet, ultimately she wasn't too useful in combat. Yoko on the other hand was specifically suited for this sort of thing. At Kath's gaze she drew two hand and half swords. "We're with you."

"Man, I really wish Hayate would get here... Kath, is everyone else ready?"

"We're with you."

Lumis: And the others will be here.

(It didn't take long either. Taking only a few minutes to prepare themselves, the wayward others did indeed appear. Hayate's portal opened, allowing Hayate herself to come through, followed by Sara, Grim, and...Hellboy. Oh yeah, he was here again. As the first three readied their weapons, Hellboy had come with the Good Samaritan and Big Baby in hand. He was sporting a number of explosives, as well, and had a direct line to Abe's knowledge back at the base, as per usual. Sara stood by Kath now and smiled.)

Sara: Miss me?

(The air rippled around her body, and soon a good dozen bloated, monstrous purple spiders with poisonous fangs and piercing legs appeared along with everyone else. Darrel reacted with a start, but then he realized that they were on his side. Lumis remained calm the whole time, knowing already. Hayate came over to Takeshi now, though she did not disrupt whatever he was up to.)

Hayate: We're here now. What shall be done?

No sooner had he started thinking about her did she appear. Hayate's portal signaled many familiar faces, including the one Kath was always happy to see. Sara took her place by his side, something that had become so natural over such a short course of time. They were a pair now, not just socially or romantically. If one designed a battle they would need the pair of them to be truly effective. It was somehow a comforting thought to Kath. Sara smiled at him giving him the most casual of hello's Miss me? Kath smiled back leaning over to kiss her cheek. Like the sun misses the flower love. Kath didn't notice but Jen reacted slightly to seeing Sara and Kath being so... comfortable with each other.

The young girl turned her back on the couple and put her tablet away, as if too disturbed to work on something any further. Yoko put her hand on Jen's shoulder "Its ok, just stay with me once the fighting starts. I'll look after you." They both knew that wasn't what was bothering the young girl, it was something so much deeper than that, however Yoko had promised Jen she would stay out of it until Jen had asked for her help. Yoko's way of sorting things generally ended at sword point after all. "I know what to do Yoko, you can stop babying me!" She huffed storming away from Yoko for a minutes respite.

OOC: Sorry for the short post out of order. Was trying to give Hiroto more to work with ^^

Takeshi smiled as Hayate appeared, "Well I'd say we wait. Knowing our enemies, they'll appear soon enough."

He started to walk towards the rest, as several dark tendrils slowly creeped out of the ground. Growing in size, they were soon several feet across, and rising twenty or so feet high. The tentacles lashed out, sweeping across the area, trying to hit anyone who tried to get close. Tiberius, being the 2nd closest, was sent flying backwards into a bit of debris near the edge of the meadows. "Sweet Jesu-!!"

Takeshi watched as Tiberius was sent flying, before jumping forward, lunging into the dirt. The tentacles kept sweeping, lashing about wildly. Takeshi was lucky, a bit too lucky. Something didn't feel right, at least until a voice came out of the air. "Now where is my favorite mage? Now where could he have gone? Oh there you are!"

And like that Takeshi was floating, upside down at that, in front of the Jackal. "Hayate. Please kill our annoyance."
"Aww, is that anyway to treat an old friend? Haven't I treated you so well?"

Takeshi's eye twitched slightly at this, his hands trying to open the rune pouch. "Well I suppose I should be a good host, and entertain you miserable lot."

The tentacles started to smash into the ground, breaking off every few hits. Each broken piece then started to grow into another tentacles. Slowly, very slowly moving closer to the rest of the group. The Jackal smiled slightly as he vanished, moving back several feet. Takeshi kept struggling, before dropping to the ground after several seconds. "Ow.... Ok guys. Let's kill them."

(Chances are, their enemy was actualy waiting for this gathering just so it could try and have all of its ducks in a row. Good luck on that account, as this lot was hardly in the mood to play the ducks. As soon as the tentacles appear, they were largely aware of the things. Ground-sweeps did not bother Sara, Hayate, Darrel, Grim, and Lumis. Three of them had decent jumpiing skills. Two others could fly. Hellboy had a problem, at first. He was tripped up, hit in the face with an "Ouch!", and then just blatently stopped one by grabbing it with the Right Hand of Doom.)

Hellboy: Cut that out.

(Spiders of Leng were varied on the effects of sweeping, wild tendrils. Some bit at them, injecting poison, while others jumped on them for a moment, trying to bite them right off. This turned out to be a mistake, as there appeared to be a living-growing factor involved here. Well, perhaps not when Hellboy started firing into them with his special personally-made anti-supernatural rounds, loaded into the Good Samaritan AND Big Baby. Still, in the middle of this mess, Hayate heard...)

"Hayate. Please kill our annoyance."

(That was all she needed to hear. She didn't care for Jackal's banter, just Takeshi's quite-calm request to murder their host. And so, with a slasher-smile, Hayate was behind Jackal, also upside-down. She had ramped up her power to be in the exoskeletal armor with her skin purple and the eight legs popping out of thin air...yeah. Those suddenly moved to hols Jackal in place while Shataros was slicing down - or up - the middle, trying to bisect the creature.)

Sara: Web them!

(In the meantime, Lumis has cast Deflex on every one of their allies, rendering the kinetic force of the tentacles down to potential, just making them stop - without force - when they strike these shields. No break-off would occur here. Sara has ordered the tendrils to be webbed, and so the Spiders of Leng launch webs and attempt to tie them...before she lets off a Banshee Shriek and Darrel throws Crimson Lances at the masses being formed to basically not break...but destroy them. Grim attempted same with his sonic vortex power.)

Kath retreated a bit, keeping clear of the battle. It wasn't that he couldn't be useful up close, far from it. However at the moment Kath realized that the enemy was far more organized than he initially projected. He remembered one of this ages more curious little theorems, Chaos, it postulates is not the absence of order but the perfection of it. So much occurs in the complexity of this world that chaos ensues, however this theory believes that the sum total of each and every minor reaction defines chaos, and that it becomes entirely predictable. So Kath sat and watched. He used the information Sara had gleaned first hand as well as that of the continuing battle below. He could see the whole of it, experiencing it through Sara's eyes and through the eyes of his companions. Takeshi was in the center, clearly he was the ultimate goal... but he seemed to be the furthest from harm. Kath began to wonder as he collected data.

What if Takeshi was not someone they wished to kill. A mage of his quality wasn't entirely rare, but his potential might be unique. Could he harness the power of chaos? The thought was a dangerous one. It pulled into question whether or not the Jackal himself was not a puppet who's purpose was to awaken Takeshi, to twist his mind and bring him into the fold of this 'deity' that the creature served. He kept this to himself however, Sara needed to concentrate on what was in front of her. Plus he wanted to watch her back. Despite this being about Takeshi, and through him Hayate, Kath would always be worried over Sara's safety first and foremost.

Jen was calling out orders, developing a unique pairing between herself and Yoko. The young redhead weilded hand and a half swords with extreme diligence. The two of them were keeping the tentacles within a small area. Jen kept behind Yoko while the redhead smote the ruins of each tentacle that dared expand beyond the reach of Sara and her spiders. The intent was to keep the lot of them webbed and contained while they put their faith in Kath. How they moved and what the Jackal did would end up giving him a method to destroy the enemy with incredible precision. Even if he didn't know this they had been briefed by Artemis. Kath's mind was a weapon most armies would kill for, many had already tried.

The tentacles kept swinging and exploding. Yet as they did, a few were drooping down from the poison of the Leng Spiders. Others stopped after making contact with the Deflux shields. Even more were stopped by the spider webs, but even this didn't stop the tentacles from exploding into more fragments.

Takeshi slowly got up, trying to dodge the tentacles closest to himself. "Dang it! Time for something with a bang."

The Jackal was easily sliced in two, reforming into two identical forms of himself. "Oh my, did not expect that. Really should watch were you swing that, wouldn't want to split any hairs."

Rolling closer to the center, Takeshi started to shift form. Growing larger, all four arms started to rip the closest tentacles out of the ground, all while other tentacles started to whip him from all sides. "Oh well this just won't do. Oh no no no."

Even as everyone fought, center kept forming more tentacles. Looking similar to a bed of kelp, the mass slowly expanded outward, creeping forward. Tiberius slowly got up from the rubble, donned in his armored plating. "Right. Now for the real fight."

Tiberius was rushing forward, punching and kicking his way into the mass of tentacles. While not overly effective, Tiberius made a decent shield as most of the tentacles around him aimed for him, and not the others.

(There seemed to be no conclusive way to handle the growing tentacles, which were getting rather numerous and entwined in each other right now. That having been said, Hellboy got an idea when he saw that Takeshi pulling on the central mass irritated Jackal. Takeshi seemed to have some sort of plan in motion, or at least that seemed to be the case. Big Red turned to Sara now with a question.)

Hellboy: Can you get me under that thing with that shriek of yours?

Sara: It's worth a shot.

(Considering that tendrils were quite occupied, more than possible. Sara's Banshee Shriek wasn't as precise as Hayate's, but it could probably get the job done. Meanwhile, Hayate was slightly perturbed about Jackal splitting into two of himself. So, she vanished her scythe and began to charge black energy. In her current state, she had quite a command of power. This could get uglier than it already was. The eldritch spawn was now grinning.)

Hayate: Two of you is twice as pathetic, filthy dog. Is this the best you can offer in this, our final battle? This lackluster display wouldn't make Azathoth blush, let alone any of the others who have minds fear you. So, you pray to a god of chaos and hope to what? Destroy the world? Rule forever? You're not ready and neither is your master. You're the third-rate servant to a second-rate Chaotic, and it shows.

(There was a shriek and Hellboy leapt down there to try and get to the center and the ROOTS, blasting his guns at tendrils that got in the way. Darrel, Lumis, Grim, and the spiders all kept the tentacles busy for him. By now, Hayate's charge-up had become beachball-sized Black Entropy attacks and her glowing eyes made her look like proper evil as she let loose the power on the Jackals.)

Hayate: Return to nothing, fool!

Hayate's attack connected quite solidly with the back of Jackals' heads. The bodies grew limp, falling to the ground. The tentacles slowly rotted, turning to a bloody red smoke. Even Takeshi was a bit confused as the tentacles turned to smoke in his hands. "Theres no way we won it that easily..."

The air shimmered slightly in front of Takeshi as a large purple eye opened up. It blinked slowly, the iris looking around at the area. "Hmmm... This is Earth, no? Home of the humans? Yes?"

The two bodies of the Jackal got up, walking towards the eye. "Yes my lord, this is Earth. See? Perfect realm for you to live in. Plenty of servants, plenty of strange powers. All brought by your loyal servant. I even brought the mage."

Takeshi moved slowly back towards Hayate, trying not to take his eyes off the giant eye. "... You called me to this plain? Seems to be a rather miserable place. Not much fun from what I see before me.. Are you sure you were looking for me?"

"Boring?! BORING! I've done all that you asked Iocuvani, some bloody god you turned out to be. A waste of efforts! All this, and no destruction!"

The eye focused in on the Jackal, "Oh so thats what you want. Destruction? I may be a god of chaos, who's name was once carved in blood. But even I have my limits to the stupidity of man."

Takeshi slowly reformed as his usual self, with bits of robe around his shoulders. Torn and tattered, it was obvious that his clothes were gone again. "Well this is not what I was expecting...."
