    Eh, I suppose, cause it was mentioned earlier that Lix hadn't gotten over Grim's death, but that was back when Grim had just died. Why did you have to be Grim's beautiful assistant!?Well, you aren't actually his assistant.

    So Pinkie Pie is actually MASSIVELY POWERFUL and the eventual end villain? Nothing in the 'verse can stop her now.

    Paladin Academy: Chapter 2: Part 5
    -Cast-
    Recaiden
    Viola

    Spoiler
    Show
    The sunlight shines down upon the the trees flanking a large well worn road. A small breeze caused the branches to sway slightly. Leaves danced around the dirt trail, bumping into a cloaked figure who was walking along the road.

    Recaiden looked out at the world in front of him, but without seeing it. In his mind, he was remembering, thinking, and calculating...

    ***********

    Leaves snapped as he hurried through the forest. The slight metallic clanking behind informed him he had not lost his pursuer. He jumped up, grabbed a branch with both hands, and used it to launch him over a downed tree. Wasting no time, he continued his hurried flight.

    A few seconds later, the sound returned. He scowled at his escape attempt not working. He cussed to himself as he he emerged out onto a grassy plain. There was nothing to use to hide or continue to run. He had to fight his pursuer now. He turned, pulling out a short sword and the jagged dagger. While taking a fighting stance, he looked closer at his opponent.

    A girl of about 14 stopped about ten feet from him and held her sword in front of her. He studied her eyes and found determination. No fear or uncertainty was seen. He could not use intimidation here.
    "I'm impressed. Most paladins can't keep up with me normally, yet you did. I don't know how you managed to find me since I was so careful, but here you are none the less."
    He lunged at her, swinging around the short sword. He knew he was fast enough that anybody without lightning reflexes would fall before him. Yet, she managed to deflect it enough that it veered off course. He scratched her armor with the dagger, but that was about it. She backed up from him and took a more defensive stance. He watched her, puzzled.
    "Odd. You don't seem surprised I could scratch your armor so easily. But maybe you paladins have finally realized the lengths I will go to overcome any obstacles. It took me a long time, but I managed to find something that would cut through your special armor."

    The girl didn't respond to his taunt.
    "What do you want?!"

    How typical. The usual paladin trick on finding out why they need to kill you.
    "I want my pay, which you so conveniently stopped me from earning. It's going to be much harder to do the job I was paid to do now that he's on alert."

    The girl's face seemed alarmed.
    "You mean killing him?!"

    Oh, please.
    "Duh! You should know all about that, paladin. I'm not a world famous assassin for nothing!"

    He lunged at her again. This time however, the girl managed to block his dagger directly, not just deflecting it. The sudden stop in momentum caused him to crumple up against his arm. Then he felt the girl push back against him. His feet were in an awkward forward angle that he couldn't stop himself from falling back.

    Panic flooded through his mind as he fell. He quickly reached out and managed to cushion his fall with one hand. But now he was in a vulnerable spot. Any moment now, some kind of blast would surely hit him, rendering him disabled. But as he looked back up, he saw the girl did not hit him with any special power, but instead tried to swing her sword down on top of him.

    Getting past his surprise, his eyes quickly analyzed her form for any faults or weaknesses. There were none present. The swing was done perfectly. He couldn't dodge in time while on the ground like this. Acting quickly, he reached up and grabbed her wrist. Then he quickly curled up into a ball with his feet centered on the ground. The move stopped the girl's swing, as he used his entire body to block the blow. He waited until he felt her trying to raise her arm away from him. Using her own movement to support him, he quickly twisted and kicked her in the stomach, causing here to fall back a couple yards. He got to his feet, taking relief that the danger for the moment had passed. He didn't know why the paladin didn't just blast him with lightning or something. She was either really dumb or really arrogant.

    The paladin got to her feet and this time charged him. He ducked under the swing and grabbed her wrist again. He then twisted her wrist around and pinned it behind her back. He watched as the pain caused her to seize up, unable to move. He looked along her sword, finally finding the slot where the paladin's crystal would go. It was empty. Realization suddenly flooded through him.
    "Oh... I see. You're new at this aren't you. You haven't any real combat experience. I was wondering why you weren't using any obvious powers against me."
    But quickly he realized this was troubling news.
    "But this is worrying. How could a newby like you manage to track down me? Did I really make a mistake in my planning? Your danger sensing ability shouldn't have been able to register me with all the other people committing crimes in the festival."
    He spent another moment, puzzling over this. He finally decided he needed to end this. A paladin dead would certainly make his life easier.
    "Oh well. I better finish this up. Maybe I can still execute my target before he can get into his uncle's protection."
    He yanked on her arm, causing her to fall onto her knee's in pain. He brought the dagger around to stop just above her neck. He could feel her shaking with fear. That was good. The paladin finally realized who was in power here.
    "Time to die, Paladin."

    **********

    ...He snarled out loud as he withdrew himself from the memory. If those damn other paladins hadn't gotten in the way, he would have had her back then. He reached into his robe and pulled out the folder. He opened it up to look at the sketch of her face again.

    This time, she was not going to get away.

    Ah but here the flashback have the avantage of givng us a different POV on an already familiar scene.
    Form the start of this chapter it look like the bad guys will get somme more devellopement. It's a good thing but I'm wondering if they aren't going to end up stealing the spotlight a bit.
