A fight and some pretty nice obstacles (Private for Draco and myself)

Post by Morgan Landry on 11/24/2014, 5:44 pm

Chiara loved it when the Hephaestus kids came up with temporary modifications to the arena. Traps, random bursts of flames, automatons instead of dummies... It always made for a challenge.
The short daughter of Ares had arrived early to the huge marble building, but apart from some obstacles, the arena looked the same as always: ochre sand, weapon lockers, refreshment table, dummies in Greek armor... Well then... She was eager to see which traps the Hephy's had thought up.
She was dressed up for fighting though: urban camouflage outfit with her combat boots and her black Myrmidon armor. She even had her new shield on her arm, which was chiseled with an ant, symbol of the Myrmidons. But it also reminded her of herself; small but shielded by an exoskeleton (though for her the exoskeleton was emotional, not physical). She may hate ants when they crawled on her skin but she liked them as a symbol.
Warming up by doing push-ups, Chiara started jogging around, stabbing dummies in the gut and spilling straw onto the sand of the arena as she did so, jumping over and rolling under the obstacles. She did parkour and free running ever since she was eleven, so doing that wasn't much of a problem.
And that was when the spinning blade came at her. A flash of bronze. Her battle reflexes took over and she immediately raised her shield in front of her face. It gave a thud as the blade harmlessly bounced off but that short moment of blindness had Chiara fall feet first into a water pit which had been hidden under the floor of the arena. Dragged in to her throat, she sheathed her sword and spluttered around. The water was ice cold, seeping into her shoes, her armor was weighing her down and her clothes made moving difficult. The tip of her red curls sticking to her neck, she made circling movements with her arms to keep her head above the surface, spitting out water. Her helmet was heavy on her head. Then she gave a powerful kick at the bottom of the pit which propelled her upwards enough for her to grab the edges of the pit. With wet hands, it was difficult to hold on to it but after two tries, she managed to roll out and unsheathed her xiphos again, her camouflage clothes soaked wet. Pulling herself out of the pit with her armor weighing her down had made her muscles a bit sore but that was no problem for her. She loved the arena. One of the only places she could translate her anger into a good fight.

She also understood why the Hephaestus's had put up the water pits. Wet clothes could be a real pain when fighting, they clung to everything, were heavy and noisy. At least this here was gonna teach her how to fight in those cases. Chiara grinned; had she ever mentioned how much she loved and appreciated the Hephaestus's work?

Damien grinned wildly. Whether it was the sheer thought of messing with the newest contraption that those kids of Hephaestus made or the thought of going head to head against his sister, he didn't know. He was just bouncing with sheer excitement. He was quite literally dancing from his corner with his blue, blood-loving eyes screaming out of full energy.

"Come on, come on come on!" Barked Damien as he threw himself into the arena like a berserking beast and sprawled his massive build over the furry of swirling and slicing blades that tried to chop his limbs off. However the more than crazy son of Ares summoned his weapons and deflected the rotating blades with a great downward swing of his spear. After a few more moves from his sword, spear and bow and arrow, Damien managed to cover himself with the fluids of the automatons he massacred. He had to notice his much smaller younger sister who was also showing impressive strength and more than praise-worthy moves. However he needed to tease her a bit.

"Better keep up Red!" Laughed Damien as he beheaded three automatons with a great wide swing of his black-colored great sword. The tall hispanic man with the strong accent had na equally strong physical shape. Well, after five months of an intense work out regiment anybody bulked upped but since he was already muscular before now he looked downright formidable. His outfit consisted of a new set of black armor he had ordered since his last pair had broken before which was comprised of a solid black celestial bronze breastplate with matching gauntlets, pauldrons, shin armor and a helmet he did not use. The suit of armor made the tall tanned Damien look even a bit more battle-readied himself, which was exactly what he wanted to do. However, thanks to his training, he was not slowed down one bit even with the weight of the armor. If anything he looked even more agile and dexterous compared to his once clumsy and even stiff movements. He had addressed Chiara as Red since that was what he called his sister, due to her hair color and their love for battle.

However as the tall man with the wicked, almost wolfish smirk in a state of euphoria he failed to notice the flamethrowes that began to prepare. He didn't have time to jump out of the way or anything, so he sliced his hand with his sword, set it aflame and managed to clash the flames if the flamethrowers with the fire on his sword. Given the physics of fire, when both sources of flames clashed they disappeared. However Damien was caught off guard by a second wave of fire. He managed to dodge the flames just on time but did lose his footing for a few seconds before regaining his composure.

"Better watch out for those flames Red. They made em pretty hot." Smiled Damien as he ran towards his little sister with the great black sword of his tightly held in his dominant hand. He knew the best he would gain is a parry, but he had to at least begin the fight.

"Head's up!" Grinned the older son of Ares to the younger daughter of the god of war.

"Damian!" she called, jumping over a hurdle whilst flicking a spinning blade away with her sword. "Where the fck have you been! Look at you, did you do the Hulk workout program?"

She was actually glad to see him again. Damian was a real son of Ares; brawny, huge, battle scars. Even though they often argued and picked on each other -- because, not gonna lie, that's what everyone does in cabin 5 -- he was a cool dude. She just felt like a smurf next to him because of her short height and his formidable stature.
The ground under her opened into a water pit just as a burst of flames caught her in the back, which was fortunate. Her red hair had caught fire but it immediately died out as she splashed into the water. This time though, she was ready. A powerful kick later, she had grabbed the edge of the pit and heaved herself out, a razor-sharp disk digging itself in her black breast plate with a thud which vibrated through her ribcage. Ripping it out, she threw it across the arena at a dummy, hitting it in the side of the stomach.

Chiara crawled under a hurdle, rolled onto her feet and dodged a blade. "Nice arena, huh? They should do that more often."
