The SkyRaven War Room: Rome ETA..3 minutes
A vast array of lights accompanied by the techno-phonic blips filled every corner of the highly advanced War Room. The five main members of the FABLE special forces were there making their final preparations for the upcoming battle in their own unique ways. “Maggie oh, Maaaagggieee!” Diego playfully called while rolling in an office chair next to her. Maggie was continually working on at a nearby holographic computer station, analyzing the strange virus compound that came with the mysterious man’s video email. She wasn’t having any luck, and her frustration level was slowly rising. “She answered Diego’s calls without giving him any eye contact “Yeah, what is it Cat?”. Cat placed his hand on his chin and spun around in his chair. “I was thinking, this SkyRaven is amazing truly a marvel. You did wonderful job Maggie, but its 21 century, the year 2014 where is our teleporters? I would like to say to you one day; Beam me up Maggie!!!” Maggie simply sighed and turned to face Cat to answer his silly since he should already know the answer. “Ugh, I thought I told you earlier we do have teleporters, but I need to examine Hexidecimal’s battery core specs so I will know the formula to make one for us.” Cat got up out of his chair “But Maggie! Cat shouted you are like a lady MacGyver. With your talent you can certainly create it by combining the heart soul and iron will power of a young inspiring martial artist! with the hopes and dreams of a young wishing to be Hokage!!” Maggie looked at cat like he had lost his mind; "This isn’t one of your silly fan-fic manga’s you’ve been writing you crazy otaku; this is real life.” As she was talking a grin slowly came across her face. “You obviously need to add the knuckle hairs of ancient wushu grandmaster just sayin.” Both Maggie and Cat chuckled at each other and gave each other a bro fist. “Thanks, Cat really needed the laugh.” Maggie said with a smile.
“Cat, Maggie come over here for a quick briefing” Manami call out from across the room. The field commander of the FABLE Special Forces was accompanied by La’trisha and Elani sitting at a highly advanced round table. In the center it was displaying a live holographic video feed of the current situation in Rome. Manami began to give her report to the others “Our target is the large Ebony Knight he is approximately twelve feet tall and half a ton in weight. He possess a high level of super strength, and despite his size has incredible speed and mobility; enough to tag someone as fast as Juni Hinamura who we can see her getting knocked into a building by the knight. The SkyRaven’s scanner also detect a signal of Darkforce energy within the Knight. We are dealing with something supernatural so be ready for anything; Elani you will lead us off in the first attack. Elani had a smirk across her face and spoke with her usually highly confident tone, “Hmph no problem, you guys just better hope there is something left of him after I’m done. Anyway, who are those other two down there with the knight?” La’Trisha knew who one of them were after years of espionage tours in Africa and answered Elani’s question; That’s Melea Zines, a priestess that worships a being called the World Swallower.” Whoa whoa whoa, World Swallower!?!” Cat interrupted "that big ugly lug that was attacking San Fran a while back? Mana, you think this knight might be part of that whole fiasco, she does have Knight of her own.” Manami continued to look onward and responded to Cat “ I don’t believe so, wouldn’t make sense to have it cause all this damage just to fight it with another knight, however that other individual was also spotted in San Fran according to reports. We’ll take the Ebony Knight down first ask the questions later; Let’s move out!!!”
The Battle in Rome (Timing in sync with the beginning of the post)
Juni and Koko put the law enforcement officers, who were nearly destroyed by the awesome power of the Ebony Knight. Juni the queen of the Hinamura ninja clan raised her hand to the sky, then in an instant powerful bolt of lightning struck Juni in a blinding white flash. In her raised hand was the Katana of her ancestors, the symbol of leadership within her clan; the blade simply known as Arashi. The ivory, maize and cardinal colored sword was still in its sheath chained, until Juni simply whispered to the sword..”release.” The chain around the katanas hilt dispersed allowing her for a high speed unsheathing; once she did several buildings around her were slashed in half slowly sliding off their bottom foundations. Koko Juni’s younger cousin using the space between her fingers unsheathed six of her seven swords on her back and got into her fighting stance. The Hinamura duo were ready for the attack, but then suddenly three new individuals appeared on the battlefield; one of which was another black knight. “Juni, there is another Knight is that woman responsible for this?”Koko asked. Juni looked onwards gritting her teeth and answered, “I’m not sure Koko but stay on guard.” The ferocious Knight himself took his eyes off the Hinamura ninjas and looked at the direction of the young who was taunting him. A puff black smoke was released from the nostrils of the Knight as he roared, a flame aura darker than black surround him then he rushed at his taunted at a blinding rate of speed. Once in range he gripped the hilt of his blade tightly and slashed towards Rex in an XYZ pattern aiming his blows at Rex’s torso. Then the multi-armed Knight attempted to blindside the monstrous warrior, but he was ready. Using his speed once more he was able to pivot and block the blow with his mighty blade. There was a clash of sparks; the impact caused the knight to slide back several inches. Koko couldn’t believe her eyes” How could someone that big move so fast? And possess enough dexterity to block at that angle she pondered to herself. “Koko let do it!!!” Juni shouted as she rushed the knight; Koko shook out of her day dreaming and followed behind her cousin. The Ebony Knight stood ready while the ninja duo launched a high speed barrage of slashes at the Knight. The three of them were moving the battlefield at such a speed almost invisible to the naked eye. The sights of sparks, the sounds of steal clashing steal echoed through the area. Then like the sound of an exploding bomb, The backhand of the Knight connected with Juni causing her to flying into a nearby antique shop. “Oh no JUNI!!!Koko shouted taking her eye off the knight. That was all the time he needed to seize the upper hand; grabbing Koko by her shirt collar and lifting her up in the air, and slamming her back down into ground. The impact left Koko in a small crater, she was barely moving. The Ebony Knight was ready to deliver the final blow to Koko turning his sword downward preparing to impale her. Juni slowly got up to one knee her face and arms slashed up due being knocked into antique glasses. She could only watch as Koko was at the mercy of the knight” Koko NOOOOO!” Juni shouted with a tear sliding down her cheek.
The knight thrusted his sword downward once more; it looked over for Koko when suddenly a psionic bubble appeared over her absorbing the impact of the blow. Juni was stunned to see it happen, she crawled over towards the shattered window pane to see who was responsible. “….La’Trisha!?” Juni muttered to herself, then figure looked down upon her and offered their hand saying “Is there anything broken?” A smile came across Juni’s face “Manami I see your finally here, the only thing that broke was my stride I’m up for another round.” Juni said and she took Manami’s hand and rose to her feet. The Knight was looking around at the new arrivals, not noticing someone creeping up behind him. He received a tap on his shoulder; It was Elani levitating over him with a grin on her face. “LIONHEART!!!” Elani shouted as she busted into a golden flame. The flame around her hardened into form fitting armor for herself; she clutched her armored fist tightly and launched a massive haymaker to the Knight jaw. The force created a massive boom causing the Knight to fly backwards and crash into another building. Elani landing next to Koko as Cat and La’Trisha rushed to her aid. Koko slowly opened her eyes and noticed everyone gathered; “ Cat, La’Trisha, Elani…you guys made it!” “Glad to see you’re OK” La”Trisha said helping Koko up. “Same here squirt” Cat added in. Elani had her arms folded and said without looking at Koko and the others. “Never take your eyes off the enemy!” Koko, Cat and La’trisha looked at each other when La’trisha said “That’s Elani’s way of saying she glad you’re OK too."
Manami and Juni ran over to the rest of the group, meanwhile The Ebony Knight once again rose from the debris. Elani’s blow managed to damage the Knight cracking his armored face, but suddenly as if nothing happened the wound quickly disappeared. Seeing as more warriors appeared he was going to need more reinforcements. With a raise of his hand the corpses of several slain civilians began to rise in the air. Then in a flash transform into gargoyle like creatures; hundreds of them flew around circling everyone, and then rushed forth their fangs and claws bared to rip apart their foes.
