    It's at this point that his bloody hand shoots out of his pocket toward her throat.

    Oh, yes, aren't we a little genre savvy one? Insult the bloodthirsty monster who's within arm's reach. You know why I haven't been reacting to you mocking me? It's because the whole shtick of Black Lantern's is that they don't have to have emotions. I like to pretend though, hence all the smiling and stuff. Sometimes, I almost fool myself.

    "Is it really? I rather fail to believe that."
    Grace says as she swiftly leaps out of the way, with more speed and nimbleness than she normally displays.
    "You certainly seem to be acting emotional right now."

    "I could be wrong, I suppose. I haven't exactly done my research on you- but then again, you haven't really done your research on me, have you?"
    She holds her trident tight in her hands, her smile turning into a grin.
    "If you have no emotion, then you should rely on logic a little more. This entire situation reeks of poor decisions- I can't decide if your crowning achievement is informing a person entirely unaware of what you've been doing about your actions, or attacking someone with unknown capabilities. I suppose you could have rigged the former, but the latter, well..."

    Nite moves forward. The time for talking was over as far as he's concerned. He aims a controlled slash at Urae's neck.

    Maybe it's true, maybe I do have emotions. Or maybe I'm just stupid and overconfident, just like Rae was.

    UnRae says, and Nite's sword should pass right through him as his form changes. He goes from a relatively normal looking human to a decrepit, partially rotted corpse with a gaping hole in his chest. Well, most of his torso, really. The bones have grown back, but not much else. Well, that explains the lack of a heartbeat at least.

    Or maybe, just maybe, I'm exactly as smart as I need to be.

    He holds his bloody hand out and a blood red sword shoots out of his sleeve. He catches it.

    I suppose it's time to quit phasing. We don't want this to get boring.

    "Maybe you are."
    Grace says as the bracelet around her wrist begins to shine, a pink glow shimmering across it and then swirling around the rest of her.
    "Lets put it to the test."

    "Powers Designated 'Executive' Authorized."
    Chimes a small voice from Grace's general vicinity.

    She raises a hand and a triangular pattern forms in front of it, each of the three points emphasized with a partial circle. Almost quicker than the eye could track, a lance of energy darts from each of the three points, arcing around Nite to stab at UnRae. The energy will swiftly bore through any solid substance put in its path and continue on its trajectory.

    Nite thrusts forward at UnRae's chest with his sword. At the same time he raises his off arm and a buckler of black energy forms on it.

    UnRae parries Nite's thrust and jumps back, drawing a symbol in the air with his ring quite quickly. Is that a smiley face? I believe it is. He sends it forward toward the lances of energy, hopefully blocking them with it's own black energy, and swings at Nite, his sword growing to cover the distance between them.

    Grace's lances crackle against Rae's barrier, but with a gesture they shift into a solid sheet, then seep around it and fling forward again, this time forming into a hail of needles. They won't be as strong as the lances, but their number should make up for it.

    With a second gesture, a circling crescent of energy forms around Grace, but it does nothing for now.

    Nite deflects the sword with his buckler. As he does so he mutters a few words and slashes the air in front of him. An arc of fire flies at UnRae.

    Hey, it's a good thing he likes to wear black then, because that means that his coat is fireproof. He throws up his arm to block the wave of fire and allows himself to be hit by the needles. A few are probably blocked by his coat, but plenty still hit. He would probably be quite bloody right now if he actually had blood any more.

    That the best you got?

    He says, smiling. A black energy sword appears in his hand and he rushes forward, not running, just gliding, swinging both of his swords at Nite and trying to continue forward past him.

    ((Bluh, going out of town, so deadtime.))

    Nite rushes forward as well. He catches one sword with his shield, the other with an energy barrier, and tries to run his sword through UnRae's chest. He stays in perfect balance at all times.

    The needles, one at a time but in rapid succession, burst apart into the energy that formed them, attempting to form a webbing of energy beneath UnRae's skin which will not only tear his flesh apart, but will hamper his movements and slow him as it actively resists his actions.

    A second and third crescent of energy form around Grace with two swift gestures on her part, circling swiftly around her as she readies herself.

    Ooh, that's a little better.

    UnRae says as the webbing begins to form. He draws his own energy, black ring enrgy or otherwise, into him and then forces it out, trying to break the web. And then he shifts just enough that Nit's sword pierces him without hitting anything vital, though that may not even matter any more.

    I wonder...

    He says, trying to grab Nite's sword arm as he closes his eyes. A split secon later, his wings begin to grow, coming out tattered and stained red with blood. His skin begins to boil as holy energy courses through him. If he was successful he will try to channel it through his hand and into Nite.

    UnRae manages to get his hand on Nite, and when the holy energy gets channeled into him he drops to his knees. His buckler and barrier get released and he lets go of his sword. The flesh around UnRae's hand is already charred and burning away. The burned section expands quickly, and in only moments Unrae will be holding onto Nite's bones.

    Forcing the web out of his skin is likely quite damaging, though he'll manage it if he puts his mind to it. Still, pulling out what amounts to a wire fence out from under your flesh is not going to be pretty.

    Even worse, however (if that's possible) is that Grace has formed barbs and curves along the structure of the energy web, which should latch on to the power UnRae was using to remove it. Perhaps before he has time to realize this, Grace gives a quick draw on her power that pulls it back towards her, and possibly tears apart the solidified energy UnRae turned against her.

    Should she succeed, the tear will be much more serious than the destruction of an energy construct would imply. It would not be permanent damage, but it would be akin to having a metaphorical muscle torn out.

    In the meantime, a fourth and fifth crescent of energy join the others in their orbit around Grace.

    Crae Yanks On Nite's arm as hard as he can, intending to tear the bones off at the shoulder. He throws the arm (if succesful) followed by Nite's sword toward the far wall.

    Go get it Boy!

    He shouts enthusiastically. Then he looks at his own hands, and his boiling flesh in general.

    Yeah, this probably hurts about as bad as it looks.

    And then he gets most of his remaining skin torn off.

    That too.

    Luckily for him, he had stopped holding on to the energy before Grace tore at it, and she may find the purposless energy flying towards her, some in larger chunks than others, followed by a very large black fist.

    Nite cries out in pain as his arm is torn off. He isn't done yet though. He launches himself up at UnRae, the vampire's fist directed at his head. Black energy forms wolverine like claws.

    As one may have experienced in unfortunate events, putting your weight into pulling something is a good way to get thrown off balance. This is rather like what Grace experiences when the hooks of her net find no purchase.

    What most people don't experience is being hit with a train like force immediately afterward. Grace, unfortunately, isn't 'most people.'

    Wham.

    There's a crack as she flies against the wall, her exit through which is facilitated by the five crescents, which neatly sheer off the bit she strikes, allowing for slightly less resistance. Slightly.

    This also means she lands outside.

    ((Switching threads to Outside. Just fyi, RPG, Rae and I discussed moving threads via PM, so we can clear the Aurora entry of this fight so people can get in.))

    That may not be the best idea, as, with most of his skin removed , his holy energy has places to escape and is simply pouring out of him, destroying his skin just as fast as he can regenerate it.

    This might actually hurt a bit worse than it looks at this point. Ouch.

    Things may also get a little worse for Nite, as UnRae is trying to grab hold of him, wrap his arms around him to be more precise. The energy ecaping isn't nearly as intense as it would be if he were actively channeling it but it'll probably still hurt a lot. Whether hegets a hold or not, he will still fly for the hole Grace made in the wall.

    A plot clone of Grace was definitely sitting in one of the chairs on the outer ring, nearby the door. As the elf enters, she stands and moves over to greet him.
    "Welcome to Aurora. I am Grace- how can I assist you today?"
    She bows, probably displaying those horns of hers even more obviously.

    Grace says with a sigh, taking a seat next to him.
    "But I think it has more to do with our lack of members and information than anything else. We never had a great number of reliable members- then our leader was assassinated, another member seems to have vanished without warning or trace, and those who weren't contributing have quietly flaked away."

    "Not particularly. I need more people out in the field, not sitting in chairs."
    She ticks off on her fingers.
    "There's work for the empire that we need to complete, some vampires we need to eliminate, and an assassin we need to catch. We need to get more connections with the rest of Nexus so we can be notified of anything going wrong, we need to deal with some of the other organizations..."
    Grace gives a weak smile.
    "The vampires are the most pressing, but we only have two members ready to go after them, and that would leave us badly outnumbered."
