The attack had landed its mark to her thrill, but she had been left vulnerable to the responsive counter-attack from the dark type. The Quick Attack struck her head on as she recoiled from the attack. She gave squawk as she was attacked. A clawed arm moved to keep her from falling over from the attack and instead attempted to resist the force despite the damage she had taken. Before she could retaliate, the umbreon had spoken up with the intent to end the battle.
Unfortunately for Kino, Kala would not buy that. Overly cautious of foul play, she "knew better" than to fall for the words of the opponent. The petilil had tried on this as well back when she had sparred with it, why had so many pokemon relied on it? Did it work far more than she thought it would? Perhaps she should try it sometime.
Instead of ceasing the fight, she had ignored the Umbreon's proposition along with any noise as she focused her attention on the battle before her. She instead lurched towards the Umbreon with her forelegs extended to push the umbreon over and stand on top. This time she held the intent to pin the umbreon rather than just deal damage. Claws extended with no fear that the Umbreon had actually been serious about the desire to call off the fight, she moved to strike the Umbreon. If she were to fail or miss, she would be vulnerable to whatever the Umbreon decided to do whether it be flight or fight.
Tags: KinoIndria Idris OOC: Kala's an idiot please excuse her. Indria, you should probably run. xD
With the spinarak dealt with for the second and hopefully final time, Indria wasted no time in moving along, eager to leave the scene behind and put the memory of the pest in the back of her mind along with the rest of the forest. Everything about this outing was proving to be nothing less than annoying, and she blamed Kala for all of it despite it having been her own decision to enter such an environment in the first place. It wasn't particularly dangerous, what with the relatively docile natives and her own species' natural inclination toward such a biome, but that didn't make it any more fun for her. Perhaps someone of more profound emotional stability and peace of mind would have found appeal in the scenery, the nice weather and the fresh air, but not her. Granted, even in the most appealing of circumstances, she generally found something to complain about; the forest really hadn't done too bad thus far, all things considered.
The leafeon walked aimlessly with no idea where in particular to search, her only real goal being to go anywhere except the way from which she'd come. Fortunately, it seemed fate was interested in lending her a hand in committing to a direction. Her ears perked up as she heard the scrambling of little legs behind her, rustling along the grass and fallen debris scattered along the ground. She spun around, prepared for the worst, and that was exactly what she found... or at least, she certainly felt so. Her eyes narrowed, ears flattened and fur along her spin bristled as her gaze was met with that of a familiar, beady-eyed little spider. Her tail stuck straight backward and her legs spread apart, her neck and body lowering toward the ground instinctively as desire to beat the creepy little creature to death practically emanated from her being. "What?" she spat, her tone harsh and low in reflection of her agitation. Since this pest hadn't gotten the hint the first few times around, she was trying a new approach: communication. This was often her go-to, but when being assaulted and stalked by some wild critter, she found violence to be a more effective method of getting her desire to be left alone across.
The spinarak simply stared in silence, skittering backward only slightly in response to the continued, obviously hostile glare from its opposition. Either it couldn't speak or it didn't want to, but Indria wasn't interested in figuring out which happened to be true. "WHAT!?" she repeated her question in exclamation, stomping a bit closer to the bug at the same time. This time, the pea-brained pest seemed to understand, suddenly turning and fleeing, perhaps in fear of getting another swat from her tail. She still had no way to confirm it was the same spinarak each time, but at this point, she assumed as much. After all, the odds of multiple of the same creature being so disturbingly interested in her seemed... low, to say the least. She turned and stomped off angrily in the direction she had randomly selected, hoping still that this would be the last of her odd, silent stalker. Sure, it hadn't exactly hurt her, nor had it made any indication of any ill intent, but she still had no interest in entertaining its apparently baseless interest in her. She was here to find her prized creation, after all, and there was no room in her schedule for some weird little creeper.
Mere moments after she had started moving once more, she heard the familiar sounds of movement behind her yet again. Her body had only just relaxed, but her fur bristled once more at the mere sound of what she knew to be the spinarak. By now, she recognized the sounds of its movement, and it had become so predictable that she didn't even need to turn around to know for certain that it was there. She gritted her teeth and froze, the bug's own movements following suit. She was experiencing an ever-growing desire to eviscerate the little thing despite it having done nothing particularly wrong to deserve such treatment. However, she managed to restrain herself still, instead managing to come up with a non-violent solution. More importantly, though, this one wouldn't require to get her fur any dirtier than she already had. Without warning, she bolted forward, sprinting as fast as she could manage with the aim of simply escaping the spinarak rather than driving it away or incapacitating it. She knew she was faster than the grubby spider, likely to a high degree, so leaving it behind would surely be no problem. She rushed through the environment with little regard for direction, proving herself to be quite capable at moving swiftly through the foliage and natural obstacles. Her species was quite literally made to live in such places, after all, so it was no surprise that she would have a relatively easy time maneuvering through anything that came across her path. At the very least, she would surely prove faster than some random spinarak, and that was all that really mattered in the moment.
Suddenly, upon shoving her way through a patch of brush, she came upon a scene that prompted her to stop dead in her tracks. Her ears perked up as she laid eyes on a familiar Null, her would-be joy replaced with concern thanks to the situation that seemed to be playing out. While it was hard to tell what, exactly, was going on, she could see Kala was in the midst of a fight with some random umbreon. Her first instinct was to stop it, but she found herself harboring... curiosity; she wanted to know what the fight was about and, more importantly, if her creation was winning. She stayed still and silent, hoping to keep her distance and observe a bit further before deciding what to do. She wasn't particularly close and her fur made for perfect camouflage in such an environment, so she wondered if she would even be noticed. If the two combatants had open ears, they had probably heard her rather careless entrance; she hadn't exactly been going for stealth, after all. Still, if the two were absorbed in the battle, it seemed plausible that she had gone unnoticed.
all the actions and reactions pinned against each other
The umbreon had kinda assumed that Kala would not attack again when she called off the spar, and she had let down her guard a little. Which, of course, meant that the type:null's next attack caught Kino unawares - again. Y'know, after the first time she was caught off-guard, you'd think she'd learn to stay alert just in case something like this happened. But no - granted, Kino didn't know Kala very well and that probably played a part in it.
Since Kala had appeared to be trying the same trick twice, Kino was planning to pull off her baby-doll eyes trick again. Except, this time the type:null had aimed to pin down the umbreon and had succeeded, which had the effect of limiting her movement.
With her focus currently on her situation, Kino didn't notice the arrival of another eeveelution. Instead, she tried using her voice to get out of her predicament. "Kala, you big lump, get off me!" the umbreon was trying to avoid attacking, as she had called off the spar. "Didn't you hear me say the spar was off?"
While the umbreon was trying to avoid attacking, she was also getting a little irritated (at herself, for being caught off guard twice) and was thus getting a little impatient. So, if Kala were to not get off her after a few moments Kino would launch the best tackle she could in order to get the type:null off her herself.
Words had reached her ears, but the mind had refused to listen. The null did not back down even when the umbreon had insisted that the spar was called off, "I will not fall for that!" she declared as she refused to allow the Umbreon free. She had to put forth the effort to try and pin the umbreon as she failed to use her weight to properly pin the umbreon down. It likely would be fairly easy for the Umbreon to escape with a single lash out against her.
While Kala was "winning" she was winning rather pathetically. One experienced in battling likely would have recognized that Kino was not fighting back to her full extent while Kala struggled. The rage had begun to build up as Kala tried to attack while the Umbreon was pinned, but the dark type had lashed out against her. The tackle attack had struck her in the chest and allowed the perfect moment for the eeveelution to escape from her grasp.
The idiot had sustained damage from the attack but attempted to ignore it. She turned and faced the Umbreon once more with the intent to continue her unrelenting assault. If she were not stopped, she would move in for the attack once more with a Tackle of her own. This would not be an attempt to pin the Umbreon, but perhaps knock them into something or perhaps even someone quite harshly. She had not noticed the existence of her master in the vicinity as well, too wrapped up in the match. Not exactly the most destructive combat in the world, but it was supposed to be a friendly spar...that Kala had refused to simply let go.
This was one "ruse" that she just was not going to fall for!
It didn't take long at all for it to be made clear to the leafeon that this wasn't much of a "fight," which, perhaps, she should have been thankful for. She wanted to leave this forest as soon as possible, after all, and sitting around watching a pointless fight wasn't going to help her reach this goal. Thus, obviously, it should have been a good thing that the conflict seemed relatively tame and unimportant, as it would - hopefully - be easy to diffuse. Thus, she would have an easier time to collecting her guard and vacating the area. Despite this, she found herself a bit disappointed at the lack of opportunity to see the Null in a proper battle. Her own personal desires aside, this was clearly not a fight that could be much testament to the murderous marshmallow's combat prowess, and more importantly, it was apparent enough that the other combatant didn't have much interest in fighting. All things considered, the conflict sadly needed to be halted, but on the bright side, it would be that much less time spent in the forest.
The opponent Indria had immediately recognized as an umbreon managed to free herself from the hold she had been caught in, which simply went to show how unrefined the null's skills were. However, despite how disappointing such a turn of events was, it also gave the perfect opportunity to put a stop to the fight. "Kala!" the leafeon exclaimed, her tone demanding the attention of the two brawlers as she stepped forward in an attempt to put herself in the spotlight. She wished to draw the attention of not just her guard, but the opponent, as well, and now that they were separated if only for a moment, it seemed like a good time to do so. She didn't care much about drawing the two to her since she was fairly certain neither of them would attack; Kala was her personal guard, after all, and the umbreon clearly wasn't hostile. Besides, while she was a politician with the skill-set of one - meaning a particular lack of combat prowess - she was fairly confident that even if the stranger decided to attack her, the inevitable two-on-one would still be in her favor.
Indria walked with a confident strut, putting herself out in the open with every effort to display herself to the tunnel-visioned combatants. She was a bit surprised that neither of them had noticed her, especially the one who was supposed to be her private guard and thus was expected to have a certain level of attention to surroundings. Regardless, it wasn't something noteworthy enough to complain about... yet. Besides, there were plenty of other things she was far more interested in voicing her disapproval of, and the top spot on her list was not being contested. Before, it was simple annoyance at Kala for being such a chore to look after, but now, this qualm was being trailed by a concern for the oaf's capabilities. Perhaps one who knew the null less intimately would have harbored some level of concern for its mental health, what with the stigma around the species and this one specimen's clear aggressive behavior. However, Indria was quite certain there was no particular threat here; rather, she was concerned that the "beast" actually wasn't dangerous ENOUGH, struggling against some random umbreon who wasn't even trying to fight.
"WHY?" she continued, making her annoyance known in the process. Despite her tone being obviously upset, she bore a look on her face not of anger, but of unamused disapproval, perhaps even condescendence. Her eyelids drooping as if in boredom, she paused he stride and awaited an answer, expecting the fight to simply end at her demand. She had grown accustomed to getting everything she wanted, so of course, she expected this situation to be no different from the norm. Whatever the reason behind the fight, it would surely be overtaken in precedence by responding. Perhaps this umbreon was some uncultured barbarian who wouldn't recognize an important politician, but Kala surely would. However, she had failed to account for the possibility that her question would be misunderstood and she would receive some idiotic, Kala-esque response. All things considered, such a thing was, perhaps, a worse outcome than being entirely ignored.
all the actions and reactions pinned against each other
Because she'd called off the spar, Kino's motivation to fight right now was fading alongside the adrenaline built up from the action, leaving the umbreon tired. She'd broken free of Kala's grip on her, but the null still showed no signs of stopping, and instead was preparing another tackle. Kino sighed, bracing herself to dodge or counter, whatever worked best.
It was at this moment that Kino spotted a third party present at the scene. Or rather, heard the presence of. The umbreon hadn't taken her eyes off Kala as she was not going to be caught unawares for a third time. And then, a few moments later, it clicked that the third party had said Kala, indicating that they knew the type:null.
Kino relaxed somewhat, turning so that she could identify the third presence as a leafeon as well as keep an eye on her opponent. Because she could, Kino also shifted her position so that the leafeon was effectively standing between her and Kala. The umbreon figured that the other eeveelution, by virtue of knowing Kala, would at least stop unnecessary fighting... or at least, she hoped, which was why she was still wary and alert for another attack from the null. She couldn't judge a book by its cover, after all.
Kino remained silent, watching the leafeon strut confidently to make her presence known. Definitely a politician, Kino thought, aware that she was kinda being stereotypical but not that it mattered right now. The grass-type eeveelution seemed more interested in the type:null than the umbreon (if the way she acted was any indicator), so Kino simply decided to watch the scene unfold for now.
KALA KORZINA , Indria Idris | 280 | hope i made sense ;.; also i'm confused about the grimer, is it just a signature or an event post :?
The voice rang through her helm and into her ears. Her muscles stiffened as her attack was brought to a halt immediately as her mind processed just who had said it. Dirt kicked up from the ground as her talons tore into the dirt. Indria was now between her and the umbreon...what? She was confused. Indria said nothing as her eyes focused on the eeveelution that was her master as the leafeon spoke a single word, "Why?"
Kala had flinched at Indria's tone, her hind legs falling into a sitting position as she averted her gaze downward. She was in trouble, she knew it. As for the answer to this 'why' she had no idea. It was not that she had forgotten, but she did not know what the umbreon inquired about. She was just having a consensual spar with the umbreon, why was she in trouble now?
In fear of angering the leafeon further, she instead gave every answer she could think of to this 'Why' question that would be valid for the situation. Luckily, there was only a few she could think of. She spoke, "I was told that I was to grow stronger in order to better serve you as your personal guard. I requested to know how to gain strength and was told to fight ferals in Outlands and places that are known as 'Mystery Dungeons' so I came here to practice my combat skills and grow in strength. I came across Kino here and we agreed to a spar, so we were sparring..." That was just about all she could think of to say. The null looked down at the smaller eeveelution with a concerned and even slightly fearful look, "Am I in trouble?" she asked, "I don't understand why?"
Tags: KinoIndria Idris OOC: The grimer is a random event, not a signature ^^ we don't need to do it right away but it will need to be done eventually in this thread. We also still need to fight the boss, but as soon as we complete the requirements we'll all be receiving the rewards
It was no surprise to Indria that her very presence ceased the conflict. After all, she was a figure of authority and she carried herself like one. That, and she was pretty much Kala's keeper, and she knew the null would listen to her. She sighed as she looked between the two combatants, as if deciding just how she felt about the situation. She already knew how she felt, but she was still trying to figure out how to respond. After all, she knew Kala was essentially a clueless child and thus, couldn't be treated too harshly for missteps. Still, she could not simply let this behavior go unchecked, even if it wasn't intentional. And, judging by Kala's reaction, it did seem to be a genuine mistake, which was both good and bad. At the very least, Kala wasn't intentionally beating on someone with no justification. The poor thing seemed oblivious to the fact that the opponent had no desire to fight, which, while being a relief, was also a disappointment. It was almost hard to be mad at such a display. Almost.
In agitation, she took a few steps closer to her guard, trying to find the words to express how idiotic what she was hearing was. "Kala," she huffed, but paused as she struggled to think of some way to explain the situation to what was essentially a large child. Deciding to convey her message through actions as well as words, she came closer to the null and raised her left paw to touch its head; or rather, the mask covering it. "Being a good fighter isn't everything. You should be honing this," she stated, her voice suddenly taking on a softer tone that betrayed her general demeanor, albeit still with a hint of frustration. "And no, I don't mean you should be headbutting everyone," she quickly added on, the agitation returning to the forefront of her voice as she concluded that Kala would almost certainly misinterpret her words and end up with brain damage from ramming everything if she didn't clarify. She didn't like having to explain the simplest of things to her own guard like some kind of child, but it wasn't as if the blind fool was to blame. It was easy to forget that within the beast's body was the mind of a child... and not a very bright one, at that.
"You're strong enough already. What you should be focusing on is your mind rather than your body. You can have all the power in the world, but you're of no use to me if you act like a fool," she gestured toward the umbreon by flicking her head to make her point clear as she spoke. She tried to keep her explanation neutral and pragmatic, focusing on the fact that she had no use for a guard who was an idiot. Whether the two had truly mutually agreed to a spar or not, it was clear that the other combatant was no longer interested, yet Kala was apparently incapable of realizing such a thing. A guard who didn't know when to stop was not what Indria wanted by any means. Aside from the obvious problems with potential assault charges, there were also certain... stigmas surrounding nulls, so any punishment against one would likely be more severe just because of its species. It wasn't a fair system, but the world was unfair, as she had learned from a young age. It wasn't as if she had never told Kala to be careful, and yet, things like this still happened. Beyond that, a loose cannon wasn't much of a proper guard and would just bring unwanted attention to her, which she didn't need.
Feeling the need to elaborate even further to ensure her guard would have no way of misunderstanding, she continued: "I can't say how this started since I wasn't here, but as of right now, she clearly doesn't want to fight you. All you're doing is assaulting someone. Not only will you not learn anything about fighting from that, but you're also bound to get yourself in trouble. You need to think before you do things!" Deep down, she really didn't like yelling at the poor, clueless thing; sure, she had a tendency to treat others with contempt, but that didn't mean she was incapable of feeling compassion or empathy. She simply avoided showing such feelings, and often, had no need for them. After all, in her line of work, there wasn't much reason to feel anything positive toward those she generally interacted with. In life, staying neutral and emotionless toward others had proven useful to her, and so she tried to live by it.
Of course, this creature was a tool and thus, should have been afforded no sympathy. This was Indria's mindset toward not just Kala, but all things in her life, yet... she wasn't the best at it. It should have been easy to remain emotionally detached, but as she had experienced plenty before, things that should have been easy often turned out to be annoyingly difficult. Perhaps it made her a hypocrite not to follow her own code that she deemed to be the "correct" way to live, but acting like a sociopath was harder in practice than in concept. Anticipating the soul-crushingly sad response she figured she would get for scolding the big doofus, some part of her felt bad. Still, she refused to show it, feeling that her message wouldn't come across as strongly if she looked hesitant. Her own emotions aside, what mattered most was making sure whatever she had just interevened in didn't happen again. She figured she would probably have to sift through a sea of excuses and explain the situation a few more times before Kala would understand why it was wrong, but that was just something she would have to put up with.
This was the result of all her research, all her effort and all her money. Her life's work: a glorified toddler.
all the actions and reactions pinned against each other
Now that the threat of a called-off spar continuing had been calmed by the leafeon's presence, Kino relaxed, sitting down where she was. Since the adrenaline that had been coursing through her had faded, the umbreon was starting to feel the after-effects of the spar. It was nothing major, however being hit with a few tackles by a masked 'mon was bound to leave one a bit sore.
Kino had mostly zoned out while waiting for the leafeon and Kala to finish up their business. She focused on their interactions rather than their words (she couldn't really hear them anyway), and she found herself wondering how they knew each other a moment before she remembered that type:nulls were artificial pokemon. The umbreon didn't like thinking that way, because Kala seemed just like any other 'mon to her, so she pushed the thought away.
When the leafeon motioned to her, Kino perked, but when no further action was taken involving her she sighed, turning her attention to her surroundings instead. She was looking up at the trees, at the way the two species intertwined with each other, when the umbreon felt heard a rustle behind her. When she looked, Kino spotted the grimer emerging from the denser foliage. "Uh, guys?" Kino warned, not taking her eyes of the poison-type as she backed up, "We've got company."
She was scolded. The null felt her heart tighten as the words of the leafeon spoke through to her. She averted her eyes as her head hung low. The null stared at the ground as the voice rang through her helm and into her ears. The leafeon had approached her and placed a paw on her mask with instructions to hone it...hone it? How could she hone that? Was she supposed to-
"And no, I don't mean you should be headbutting everyone."
Hone it as in work on getting rid of it. Her mind trailed back to her meeting with that strange azurill for a brief second. The little blue pokemon had spoken of the destruction of the mask by force. The mask was a force that only released when she was proven stable. Until it came off on its own, it was safest to keep it on. She had to prove herself, she knew that.
A certain phrase the leafon had spoken to her cut into her, sharper than any claw, "You're of no use to me if you act like a fool." She cringed at the thought. She had been informed of what happens to defective Nulls most of the time, though she had been told it was a certainty. It was not Indria that had spoken to her about it, but one of her employers. Defective nulls were tossed aside and put down.
The leafeon continued with her lecture, volume rising as she was yelled at. Her heart sank as she felt absolutely horrible. She wanted to apologize a thousand times over, but before she could open her mouth, Kino had spoken up. Someone drew near, it was a grimer. The sludge of the creature drew near, but she did or said nothing. Should she attack? She was supposed to think about things before she did them, wasn't she? Was it hostile?
She looked between Indria and Kino desperately with her eyes occasionally flicking back to the grimer. What should she do?
She didn't know.
ooc: Like i said it doesn't really matter when. To clarify what I said above, since we already beat the level requirement for the boss, all we need to do is reach the two pages and the rewards will be delivered. We can prolong the thread all we like for the posts and pages, it's just when we meet the requirements oocly that we get the reward. Kino,Indria Idris,
At the cue of the umbreon's voice, Indria's attention fluttered away from the reprimanding of her null and toward the supposed "company." Immediately, she recognized the newcomer as a grimer, otherwise known as filth incarnate. She stepped back from the foul creature in idle concern over further tarnishing her fur if it were to touch her. Fortunately, the species wasn't known for its speed, and she had Kala to deal with it for her if it turned out to be hostile. She glance over to her guard and spoke up once more, this time with relatively few words to share: "We'll finish this conversation later." She fully intended to continue the talk, though perhaps in a more private environment, where she would be able to focus and speak freely. She stepped toward the grimer, taking the liberty of voting herself as leader and diplomat of the group since she figured she had more experience in such an area than the other eeveelution. After all, it was quite literally in her job description as a politician, even if she hated the very idea of speaking with such a filthy creature.
"Hello," she began, speaking loud and clear with a calm and indifferent tone that betrayed the condescending thoughts in her head. She would make an effort to be polite, if only to get the living pile of sludge away from her sooner. She thought for a moment on what to say, trying to find something about the grimer to speak of that would potentially drive it away without running the risk of provoking it. It didn't take long for a plan to come to her mind: she knew these creatures favored areas as filthy as themselves, given their preferred sources of food were trash and waste. The brought up the question of why one would be in a pure and clean forest; sure, it wasn't clean enough for her own standards, but was by no means an ideal environment for something that thrived off of pollution. Perhaps the grimer was lost, and if so, she wondered if she could inform it that whatever it was looking for, it wouldn't find it in a forest. "What brings you here? From what I know, this place shouldn't be very appealing to your kind," she spoke, trying very hard not to come off as rude, but alas, politeness was not in her nature.
She assumed the grimer was civilized since it was out of its element, figuring a wild one would simply stick to its territory. Thus, obviously, trying to speak with it seemed like the best course of action. At the very least, it was better than Kala's way of doing things, which was apparently just getting into fights with everyone. However, while the leafeon felt she had said enough to warrant a response, all she got was a rather vacant stare from the grimer. Its approach slowed to a halt, which relieved her since she really didn't want it to get any closer to her; she could smell its horrible odor even from a distance. However, the absent behavior of the now-stationary creature was unnerving, to say the least. "...If I offended, I'm-" she started up with a bit of hesitance, only to pause as yet another grimer crept out through the foliage not far from where the first had entered the scene. Her head swiveled to the left to lock eyes with the second grimer, receiving the same brain-dead look that the first one wore so... eloquently. "Um..." she searched for something to say, coming up with nothing but rising concern. She wasn't particularly afraid of a few grimer, but if they attacked, she knew they would almost certainly manage to touch her at some point. She didn't want them to touch her.
While she didn't know for sure, Indria had a general idea of what the odd, antisocial behavior probably meant. If multiple grimer were in such an unusual area for their species, they were almost certainly a group, and if they weren't sightseeing tourists, then... "Kala, and... whoever you are," her look shifted to the null, then the umbreon, "I don't know why these things would pick a place like this, but I believe we're in their territory. We should leave before we provoke them." She could only assume the two grimer had been driven out of their prior home for whatever reason and, for lack of a better option, had settled down in Applepine Forest. She wondered if there were more of them, and if there were, she knew their presence would probably corrupt the forest over time. Were she a more compassionate soul, perhaps she would have been interested in trying to help with this apparent problem, but as far as she was concerned, it was none of her business. She cared not for what happened to some inconsequential forest, and even if that weren't the case, she wasn't interested in dirtying herself just to deal with a pest problem.
While she was vain about her appearance and cleanliness to what was perhaps a bit of an extreme, grimer were a very serious health hazard. They were made up of toxic sludge, after all, and their bodies were riddled with germs and poisons so potent that they were known to decay all plant life in their path. In fact, it wasn't unheard of for the trail of a grimer to be uninhabitable to even the heartiest of weeds for what seemed like forever. Given she was practically part plant, she didn't want to see what being touched by the world's strongest weed killer would do to her. With this in mind, she wasn't interested in sticking around to see if she was right about the assumption that these two grimer had claimed this land as their territory, and even if she happened to be right, she most certainly wasn't interested in trying to save the forest from them. If she happened to be wrong and the two grimer were just a couple of civilized explorers, well, they still clearly weren't interested in socializing. Either that or there was something seriously wrong with both of them, but regardless, simply turning around and leaving seemed like the most appropriate response.
KALA KORZINA, Kino OOC: Unless you don't wanna continue the thread, in which case we can end it soon if you want. </3
all the actions and reactions pinned against each other
Kino's first instinct was to attack the grimer, considering they were in a dungeon and it was not one of the regular inhabitants, making them the enemy, but she held back when the leafeon began to talk to the grimer. She was fine with letting someone else handle the diplomacy; especially since Kino wasn't great with words. However, that didn't seem to work, and to make matters worse, another grimer had showed up to join the first.
"Kino," the umbreon stated, when the Leafeon referred to her and Kala. The dark-type agreed that they maybe shouldn't provoke the poison-types, but... "What about the forest?" Kino asked, her attention on the leafeon. "I don't think these guys are supposed to be here, they'll damage everything."
The type:null remained silent as Indria did her work in diplomacy. The grimer’s expression had the null on edge. Were they going to attack? Did Indria want her to fight if they did? The null’s talons tilled the ground nervously as she waited. The grimer summoned a friend it seemed, or at least it seemed to her as if it were summoned.
Indria then gave her word on the situation. Her master had declared that this must have been the grimer’s territory. She gave a nod as she acknowledged that it was time to leave. She rose herself to stand, but her acquaintance had something to say about the situation. The umbreon had spoken with concern about the forest with the accusation against the grimer that they would damage everything.
Kala looked to Indria for her response. The null was not sure what the Umbreon was talking about, but the idea of everything being damaged was not a very fun one. Kala kept her trap shut like a good obedient little monstrosity. Kala knew that Indria was the one to make decisions when the grass type was around. It would have been disobedience to go against Indria’s word and disobedient was not something she wanted to add on to her reservoir of traits, especially since it would be a step closer to being declared “defective.”
The eyes of the null stared through the opening of the mask at Indria, though she still kept a careful eye on the grimer every few seconds or so...just in case.
Indria knew Kala would obey her without question, and it had been her hope that the umbreon, Kino, would do the same. Alas, it seemed this stranger was a bit of an independent thinker, and the argument she gave for staying was a strong one. Indria, however, still disagreed despite the obvious moral justification for sticking around and trying to get rid of the two grimer. As far as she was concerned, it wasn't her problem, and she certainly didn't want to get near two poison-types if she didn't need to. But, now that someone else had suggested it, she couldn't very well just say "no" and leave, lest she risk hurting her public appearance. A single report of her acting in an unsavory manner, regardless of validity, held the potential to hurt her career. The last thing she wanted was to give someone a reason to do so.
"You're right. I suppose we can't just leave them," she spoke against her own desires in favor of her benefit, which also happened to include the forest's benefit. She drew her attention back to the grimer to give another attempt at getting them to leave peacefully, still dreading the idea of fighting them. "This isn't a good place for you to live, and you'll hurt the environment if you try. There's no reason for you to stay here, so please leave," she requested, wording it as if it were optional. She knew they would not comply, and she was proven right when the two grimer responded only by slinking in the direction of the group. She sighed, disappointed at the prospect of having to deal with such disgusting creatures by force. It was not something she wanted to do herself, but fortunately, she had someone for that.
The leafeon took a few steps back to show that she was opting out of the approaching fight. "Kala," she addressed the null by name, assuming her unspoken command would be understood. She gave a quick look toward her guard and gestured to one of the piles of sludge with her head. She was giving full permission for Kala to attack these creatures, as their behavior was clearly aggressive and they were either incapable of communicating or just refusing to. She assumed the umbreon would probably help too, considering how eager she seemed to protect the forest or whatever. Indria had no qualms with anything that made it easier for her to sit back and avoid the fight along with all the effort and unpleasantness that would come with it. She just hoped the other two could handle it without her, since beyond a few razor leaves, she wasn't interested in helping. But she doubted there would be any trouble dispatching a few measly grimer. In fact, she was confident Kala could do it alone. The null was a competent fighter, albeit dumb as a bag of bricks at times. She just hoped Kala would at least be intelligent enough to understand that she was giving full permission and even encouragement to attack.
