    Mission Name: Damian's Drainway
    Mission Rank: A
    Theater of War: The Epsilon Eventuality
    Relevant Plot NPCs N/A [Unless Requested by Players]
    Mission Goal: Protect/Kill Malver Kurama
    Description: The Fohen Union has taken up residence in one of the Mountain's critical Dead Zones, Damian's Drainway, and their current leader Malver plans on using it as a way to cut off any scroll-related movement. Several factions have hired shinobi to either act as bodyguards for Malver or to kill him and have their faction take the Dead Zone instead. Victory is declared when all but 1 side is incapacitated.
    NOTE: Genjutsu is ineffective on this mission as the Dead Zone will automatically break any Genjutsu put on a person.
    Payment: 100,000
    Maximum Number of Participants: 2 or 3 (1 for each faction)

    The Epsilon Range. He...no They had been here once before, though the memory was hazy. It was when he was young, young enough that really only Id could remember. But he had read the stories about this particular location within the range: Damian's Drainway. At the time, it was considered to be a place where boogymen were born due to the strange chakra anomaly that caused their bloodline to go haywire. Mort himself has to spend several days of travel taking fequent stops as he hit patches of what he could only describe as 'Genjutsu Vortexes' that sent his senses into places he hadn't experienced in years. But then, when he had entered the location of the twin peaks, it was silent.

    He had set up camp the night earlier at one of the smaller outcroppings on the left mountain a good 100m above the dam, the right mountain supposedly bringing bad luck. But it didn't matter which mountain he had stayed at, as it gave him a good view of his mission location. The name of the area had two meanings, the first and more obvious one was the effect it had on genjutsu, and the lesser one was that a large dam was set up between the two hilly-mountain terrains (think the Vajont Dam). He had read somewhere it was made by a Yōton user several decades ago, but outside of maybe his cousin he had no real proof. It didn't matter though, as he knew his target Damian was located somewhere in settlement built on top of the dam, as the lower settlement could easily be flooded away.

    Checking his gear one last time, he'd pull out a set of binoculars. He wasn't too worried about being spotted right now as he was in a shaded area. No for now he'd watch as he tried to locate Damian and the supposed Fohen hired guard.

    Along the edge of the dam all seemed normal. A small camp of men was camped out in the center unaware of the one looking over them and plotting a hundred meters away. Their sensory nin was not that capable but just enough to give some warning when someone entered within fifty meters of the camp. A young man who barely was keeping his eyes open as he sat in the center and lazily felt out for any new chakra that may be coming towards them. Little more than an alert for the men in the camp to arm themselves. As of yet though nothing had come about for some time. He was beginning to find himself rather bored and wanting a nap. However he had been instructed about how essential it was for him to remain vigilant. Without his sensory the camp could easily be overrun. Of course the young man now thought the idea of such a thing happening was sheer paranoia. Silly to even think someone would come looking for them out here. Still as his eyes drooped he would feel something like a tingling just out of sight. For a moment it was odd and then suddenly he felt it.

    Mort would have a view of it all. The slight mist picking up on the edge of the dam. Not enough to deter vision at all but still it rolled in like a blanket. As it did the young man began screaming and waving his sword around wildly while clutching and scratching at his head. Even from a hundred meters away the screaming was audible. Over and over again that ' he was coming' and 'they needed to flee....none could survive him'. Men in the camp quickly came to arms as one tried to approach the maddened young man. Only to have to side step the wildly swung blade. Madness had over come the young man. They were shouting for him to calm down when suddenly his eyes snapped to the edge of the dam. Tears running down his face before he turned and threw himself bodily from the dam into the depths below. Fading to be little more than a body in the depths below. He had chosen to end it rather than face what was coming. The remaining men stared in shock at the display before gathering in force and looking both ways. Soon one man shouted and indicated the far end of the dam. Someone was there.

    For anyone watching it was as if the shadows and mist clung to the legs of this man. This being coming from the depths of no where. He seemed to almost float along but the ground where he walked suggested otherwise. Leaving blackened and cracked burn marks where ever his bare feet touched. A pale man walked onto the dam the men would form a line of defense in front of their apparent leader. Easily identified for Mort now as they seemed prepared to fight. However the pale man did not slow his steady pace towards them. His ice blue eyes would take them in as his hands were held out to his sides. The mist rising up like a pet waiting to be patted by him. Suddenly there was the sensation of distant whispers in the air. Even Mort could hear them. Like distant people weeping just out of sight. One man would step forward to meet Sero only to find himself unable to move once he got within ten meters. His sword shaking in his hands as he gasped for air and sweat began to run down his face.

    Sero would approach the first man and none dared come to his rescue. The man shook as tears formed in his eyes. There was no jutsu at play here but just the most primal of fears. The man watched as Sero approached. White robes blending into the mist as pale fingers reached out. Tracing along the shaking blade and leaving burn marks along the metal. Like a torch running along it. The man would weep but his fear would not let him move from his placement. Instead he stared into the pale ones eyes and saw no form of mercy there. His lip trembled as Sero slowly turned the blade and with a swift motion shoved the tip into the mans throat. Letting him fall where he stood as blood pooled around Sero's feet. Fear spread among the others as about half them turn and fled. Whatever was there on that dam with them was causing quiet the stir. Yet none of them seemed to dare charge the being. He was wearing no identifying markers but along the right side of his jaw was exposed bone. One could see his jawline and teeth. Yet even from where Mort was hidden he could hear the whispers. Distant but audible like something haunting his dreams.

    The boy wonder known to many (but not all) as Mōtimā would watch the strange set of events play out upon his mountain campsite. It was no secret that while the Kurama were a mental bastion, this place was often harsh on their mind given their techniques had no effect here. Mort was one of the few Kurama who could deal with it given he had his Id, but he was still unnerved by the mental silence of the world. But what he saw before him was no illusion, no. Whatever that was on the bridge was almost like looking at a living illusion made by the world itself. Outwardly he'd only frown, while internally he was filled with dread for the upcoming fight ahead.

    'Oh great, looks like we aren't the only ones with demons not affected by the landscape.' "Oh fuck off Id. We're going to have to fight that if we want to prove Malver is dead and reclaim the drainway." 'I know, but it's still reassuring to know this valley hasn't given up all of it's secrets.'

    And yet, more was to come as Mort would jump in surprise as a lightning bolt struck his tent, utterly decimating the poor thing and leaving only a box where the tent was. Given how it was fairly clear out, Mort had a good idea what it was, a surprise Heavenly Transfer, but he didn't know why. Whatever it is though had to be checked quick, as that bolt more then likely gave away his position to whatever that human down there was.

    Opening the package one thought ran in their mind: The timing could not be better. "Well well well, better late then never I guess." The package contained the gear he'd been waiting on for several weeks now, the brim hat, some gloves, and a proper battle kimono. Just holding them he could tell they held power, but now wasn't the time to marvel at them, no he'd just have to figure out how well they worked with his current style as they went. Quickly putting on the items and sealing up the campsite remains, he'd form the tiger seal and make two clones of himself. One of the clones eyes turned purple almost immediately, while the other clone's eye became gold. The gold eyes was a new development after the Ryuko tested their mettle, and he wasn't sure why, something to figure out later. The two clones would slide down the cliff at a decent pace before stepping onto the dam and approach this mysterious man. The main body would continue to watch from above through the 'noculars, though he'd keep guard in case he'd have to quickly move.

    The clone with purple eyes was the first to talk as they all approached, yet it seemed unaffected compared to the golden eyes's waryness and silent demeanor. "I assume the Tsukumogai sent you, child of steam and bone?" Already the two clones were analyzing their opponent, running what they saw from the binoculars in their head again and staying on guard in case the man were to approach. The got close, but not close enough to truly feel the aura this man was giving off, not that they knew the darkness this man held.

    Sero would watch the remaining men fall back into their camp before his attention was drawn elsewhere. Short of scaling the dam there was no escape that way. They had to pass him in order to flee. Instead two men nearly identical in nature approached him. Cold blue eyes would turn to regard them as he turned his head slightly. They spoke to him but he hardly gave a response. Were they guards of his target? How quickly he would send out his elite to deal with an approaching threat. Perhaps Sero should be wary he thought for a moment. Kiri had sent him here alone to deal with this and it seemed his enemy outnumbered him. Still there was little in the way of fear in those cold eyes. Little in the way of emotion at all. Instead he would turn to face them fully. He was barefoot in white pants that seemed to be layered over each other like bone plates. His top was a black V neck shirt with a long white overcoat. No headband marked him but he was sure the bone on his face spoke chapters to his origin. Still they refereed to him as a child of steam and bone.

    Sero would tilt his head as he studied the two of them a moment. Finally he would speak in return. A monotone voice. Yet as he spoke it sounded like there were whispers in the air just too soft to hear. The mist picking up around the dam but still only just below it. Not blocking off any vision. They were at least ten meters out if they were outside of his influence. Still he would speak in return.

    "I may have been born of flesh but death is my trade. There is a man here I am supposed to apply my trade to. You do not match his description. So I offer you this. Walk away now. Anyone between me and my mission is forfeit. I will spill blood here today."

    He took a step forward. Putting the two of them just barely within the ten meters of his aura and it would become apparent he was not bluffing. Death hung in the air suddenly like a thick scent. A pressure placed upon the mind as if a beast was just outside of their perception hunting them. The being who stood before them could hardly be considered human. For a moment looking into those cold blue eyes was like looking into a void. All that rested within Sero was violence. Sero would take a second step forward. Still nine meters from them. However he was giving them a second to choose. If they rushed him he would kill them. If they fled he would continue on his mission.

    The clones listened to the man, finding his voice to be quite intriguing. It reminded them of their own passive influence on the world, though it too was annoyingly suppressed here. Given they were slowly getting more and more control over it, Id wondered how they could use this as an idea for future genjutsu. But that was for later, as even within those seven sentences they got a good idea of the situation before them. This man was there to killsteal. And then the man stepped forward, and the rush of...something washed over the two clones.

    Id couldn't help it. "HAHAHA! Is that supposed to scare me? I've felt worse from my own baby nephew!" The purple eyed clone would bring their closed hand to their mouth, chuckling into it. Id had felt fear, but this was something they hadn't felt in a while. Actually no, this was different. While it certainly reminded them of their time having to avoid a particularly nasty Jashinist group within Kumo, this was more primal, something up the Id alleyway, and predator or prey, Id reveled in the feeling of the hunt. The golden-eyes one didn't outwardly react, but unlike it's partner, there was fear coming from it, as it was not used to the presence of a monster.

    "Sadly I'm pretty sure that our target is one and the same, a mister Malver if I recall correctly. And while I'd love to not get my hands dirty, I can't exactly risk the mission for that. If its any consolation though, it is nice to know Jashinists don't have a monopoly on spookyness anymore." Both the clones would swing their hands, creating an extreme amount of air pressure as a multitude of wind blades formed from their hands and were launched at this man, the mist around them dispersing.

    Continuing to watch from the mountain above, Mort mentally cursed his Id as once again they decided to go a bit overboard. Soaring Swords or not, it was a bit overkill.

    One laughed at him. Ice blue eyes took him in a moment as Sero approached at a steady pace. He could feel it. The lack of fear from one and the slight caution from the other. He would step forward as the one spoke. Making it down to five meters before suddenly the two of them unleashed their attacks. Sheer destructive force of four wind blades ripping through the top of the damn wall where Sero had been standing. No chance in hell he dodged it. Debris cascaded into the air forming a cloud of dust from the destruction. Whatever had been in the path of that pure unhaltered violence had to be torn to shreds. They were not playing around with an enemy that was for sure. From Mort's view above it looked like they wiped out Sero in one move. Nothing but a cloud of destruction left. Yet from within the cloud there was a pulse. So much malevolence that one might find it hard to imagine it was human. Something within that cloud was coming and all their efforts were for naught. The hydrification technique had allowed those blades to pass right through him. Now it was his turn.

    "Meaningless."

    From within the dust Sero began to rapidly form hand seals. Hidden from the naked eye by it. Of course he couldn't see outside of it either but from the fear of the one he knew they had not yet moved. Dog, Rat, Rabbit, Bird and then oddly enough he finished it with the snake seal. As soon as he was finished Sero stepped out of the dust cloud now only three meters from them. Cold blue eyes regarding them before suddenly his amplified technique would launch. Thirty bone senbon launched in every direction at B rank speed for twenty meters. The amplified bone jutsu flying forward with full intent to wipe out anything around him. The attack cared nothing for anyone caught in the way. It was an attack that went in virtually every direction so dodging wasn't really an option. Not that there was really anywhere to go on top of a dam. If nothing else they needed to have some sort of defense prepared in order to counter it or simply be faster than bone needles flying at B rank speed. Perhaps there was something else he hadn't considered yet, but his focus was on the one who had laughed at him. Laughed at what he was. All that filled the air besides the dust and senbon was one thing. Murderous intent.

    All three though that would be the end of it, all four attacks should have ended it right then and there, but the clones noticed something wrong, very wrong. The malicious presence was still there, and because of that both clones were still on guard. They got confirmation that whoever it was that they had attacked was somehow still alive when they spoke, and they both pulled out their cloned copies of the tuning fork sword. However, that didn't seem to matter much as when they next saw the man, it was too late.

    The purple-eyed one noticed the hand seal first, and even without knowing what the previous tech was given how much they liked the technique they had a feeling something big was coming and they needed to move. "Aw shi-!" Both of the clones would try to jump back and use body flicker, but the bone senbon were just fast enough to get to them before either could fully mold the chakra inside of their now dissipated bodies. Mort himself would have the brief but painful memories of being impaled in places he was unused to cause him to flinch in a false pain, briefly losing sight of the man. Internally he could hear Id ranting, but he really couldn't be bothered by it right now given what was in front of him. The man hadn't moved out of the way and his clothing nor the bone on his cheek was damaged, which given his limited knowledge currently pointed to one thing.

    "God damn it, not one of these people." Mort had heard of them, those who were practically immune to any attack: Hozuki. Now Mort was getting really concerned, as his opponent was showing several bloodlines, neither of which he could counter given his skill level and environmental bullshit. It was extremely rare for a person to have a second bloodline, sure, but given implanting bloodlines were a possibility, it wasn't out of the realm of realism. But something about that mist that came off of the man was worrying him. Mist often involved heat, but chakra affinities shouldn't affect one's body unless it's a minor bloodline, such as Tamwyn and his eyes. Was the cool air just reacting to his opponent's body temperature, did he have a fire affinity, or was it just a bloodline quirk? He needed more info, and he wouldn't get it sitting up here.

    Forming another tiger seal he'd form yet another clone with lavender eyes who'd go down the mountain. The clone wouldn't try to hide it's presence, instead yelling at the top of it's lungs down to the marrow man. "You fucking asshole! I've stabbed my body plenty of times in plenty of places, but getting a god damn senbon launched into my eye fucking hurts!" "Oh my god Id, you tried to kill him, no shit he was going to retaliate!" "It's a matter of pride dumbass!" "Your pride just gave us away!" But the clone wasn't replying anymore as it continued down the mountain and back onto the damn.

    "Okay, this time you die." As soon as the clone stepped back onto the dam it exhaled a large gust of wind from their mouth towards the man, taking advantage of the artifact they had attuned to letting them not have to use any hand seals for Fuuton. Mort could only shake his head in annoyance as watched his lesser half, continuing to watch and see what happens as he tried to think of a counterattack.

    Sero would watch the two men turn into puffs of smoke and narrow his eyes. Someone was playing games. Toying with him by sending out clones as fodder. His gaze shifted to his left and then his right. Where ever the main body was hiding they were not nearby. Which was surprising to Sero. He had always assumed clones had a limited range or use. Whoever he was fighting was crafty. Likely he wouldn't be able to fight them off indefinitely. If he considered his options he had two in total. First was to collect the head of his target. To bring it back as proof. However part of his mission included eliminating all hostiles. They had made an attempt to murder him of course which meant their life was forfeit. However they appeared to be a cautious one. A cracking sound brought his attention to the damage to the dam behind him. Cracks dragged through the top of the damn but it was holding together even if it was more brittle now. Still he would need to be careful to finish this quickly or get off the dam. It wouldn't hold under much more. It wasn't like it was chakra reinforced stone.

    He was weighing options when he noticed a figure approaching him from further up the mountain wall. He knew now where they were coming from. No effort to hide their origin. This new clone even yelled at him about the senbon he got to the eye. Sero narrowed his eyes but was rather aggressively caught off guard when this clone let off a powerful wind jutsu with not warning or hand signs. Suddenly a huge gust of wind would lift Sero bodily from the ground and fling him. Causing the water to surge and splash as the dam shook under the intense wind pressure. The cracks spreading as a few spots burst open and water began to pour through. The dam was failing as it was which meant the valley below was about to become a lake. It had maybe a few minutes left before something gave way. Sero however had been blown back into the mountain with another cloud of debris. Now his aura had faded away and when the dust settled his body was no where to be seen. It appears that with one move the Mort clone had wiped out this spooky little threat. Not a sign of him having survived it.

    The truth was much more sinister. Sero had transformed his body entirely to water and hid among the rocks moving up the mountain to where the main body likely was. Careful to remain as water and move like a snack up the mountain. Hunting for his prey. Careful to keep rocks between him and that area until he circled around to the high ground about thirty meters away. Finally spotting his prey. So he was hiding and watching. Well Sero had kept himself hidden well enough hopefully. Still he would continue up another twenty meters. Only once he was fifty meters away would he even chance using this new jutsu. After all if he messed it up and got caught in it, trouble would arise. For now he was going to take this one out without threatening the dam. After all this enemy had positioned himself a hundred meters up. Likely the clone had already moved on to attack the camp. It took a minute to get that far with D rank speed. Still once he was above his enemy by fifty meters he would reform into his upper body as he made several hand seals.

    Rat → Dog → Tiger → Horse → Dragon → Ram → Dragon was formed quietly and from fifty meters out he couldn't see much about the person but he could see where he was. As soon as the signs were done he would turn and hold out his right palm. Cold blue eyes watching as a small baseball sized fireball launched from his palm. No sound made. No taunting the enemy. Just a small red baseball flying at the ground next to where his opponent was watching. Sero would slide back into his puddle and move a few meters back. The ball falling and finally hitting the ground next to Mort by maybe three meters away. Sero had aimed it at him but it was such a far shot it was unlikely that he would make it. Not with his perception. Still he didn't need to be close. The ball would burst and the side of the mountain would turn to fire for fifty meters in every direction. A burst of fire and rage sending a blast wave that burned trees and sent the shockwave to the dam itself. A massive explosion ripping apart the side of the mountain. Just out of reach of Sero who remained sheltered in his liquid form.

    Description: The user fires a small fireball that erupts into a giant fire-storm after making contact with a surface, causing widespread destruction to the area. This giant torrent of flames expands out in a 50 meter radius from the original location of impact for the original projectile. Since the flames travel along the ground, and cover such a wide area this is a difficult technique to evade. When combined with Wind Release: Pressure Damage, this technique is amplified to the point of being able to evaporate a large amount of water in an instant.

    The clone smiles as it watched the man fly off, satisfied they were able to actually see their attack actually land this time. "HAH! Never underestimate the power of a Kurama!" Mort could see that his doppelganger was dancing on the damn, but looking to the impact zone once again there was another cloud not allowing him to see how in the gods name this person was surviving their attacks. It was clear they were affected somehow given they were picked up by the gust of wind, so they were physically there. However, when the dust settled the both of them were greeted by a surprising sight: the body wasn't there, and the pressure they were feeling was gone.

    The clone decided that this was cause for a short break, but Mort himself wasn't so sure. For a clan that was famed for being damn near invincible, they should've been killed off by the first attack, not a large gust of wind that dealt a kinetic impact. No, just as he was playing it safe, his opponent had to be as well in some form. Problem now though was that he was getting an idea on what his bloodlines could do, or maybe techniques? It was strange not having Id to bounce ideas off of, but for whatever reason they went silent whenever they took control of a clone. He'd make another sweep with his binoculars over the bridge and by his landing sight, but no dice. Now that he though of it, if it was a technique there was something he could probably do.

    Like Sero had predicted, the clone eventually got bored and went into the damn itself to go hunt down Malver. The clone would beat up some thugs as it passed by some fancy electronics they didn't care about. Meanwhile Mort was still keeping an eye out in case the man did reappear, as well as any possible new attackers. It was perhaps the longest minute of his life up to that point as he kept going over the attack his clone made, and just the strangeness of it all. He'd take the time to pull out his ink pot, the brush and his notebook to make some tags, a very specific tag in fact: the five elements seal.

    It was...well it was a strange process trying to make the seals. drawing the seal itself was a simple task, for him it was just making a circle of five matagama and leave a blank spot in the middle. It was the application that made things stranger. the way he had studied it it expected a person to be able to create fuinjutsu seals with their chakra alone and not through an inky medium. And yet, here he was unable to do such a thing, so he had to think of a new way to pull it off, hence him putting the seal into the pages of his notebook. the handseal was that of pressing the seal into someone, so if he were to tear a page out and slam it into them while putting chakra into the seal, it may work, though given what his opponent was, he wondered if the seal would even stick. And as much as he could probably due with making more seals, given he was just staring off five felt like a good start, just like how he practiced every other seal. Once the five seals were prepped with chakra ink and the pages folded and slightly torn for easy removal, he'd slide the gear back under his armor, and not a moment to soon.

    Mort finally got his answer on if the man was dead in the form of a fireball launching his ass off the side of the mountain. He hadn't seen it coming as his hat was tilted to the side, the same side that it was launched from. But that was also what probably saved him from getting any real damage, as thanks to his new armor while he was launched into the air from the impact the armor soaked up the damage he would've taken. It was also for the best that he was so close to the point of impact that the force of the blast pushed him out of it and into the air in almost a comical fashion. Eventually though the blast would reach it's end and the storm of fire that was pushing him would release him from it's push and allowing him to finally activate his sword's ability of flight without worry.

    He'd do a quick pat down of his body to make sure he was okay, and while his clothes were a bit hit the fact he had hastily put them on probably gave him an out today. "Gah, I gotta remember to thank Ryuko for this stuff, cuz holy heck I would've been toasted it she hadn't gotten this to me." at the same time he could feel memories flood into his mind. 'Malver's dead apparently the fear got to him first and he took his own life. All that's left is securing this place and why are we warm?' 'Just sift through, I need to think of how to go about this.' Indeed, as he hovered there, about 45m above and 20m away from the now destroyed campsite, (thank god he sealed his shit earlier) he'd reach for his binoculars before realizing those weren't sealed. "Well shit, those were a rental." And given that he'd just float there, trying to see where in gods name the fireball came from.

    Sero would watch the explosion rock the side of the mountain as trees and terrain lit on fire. The enemy caught in the midst of it and usually he would have assumed that would be the end of it. The mass of destruction wiping out the side of the mountain entirely. He would wait though. Always waiting and watching. Hunting his prey as was to be expected. His gaze scanning the area as flames lit up the mountain in a different way. A way much more suited to him. He was about to accept the fight was won when suddenly his eyes caught sight of someone hovering above the smoke patting himself down. So his target was durable. To endure that explosion without a hint of damage. The armor was burnt but otherwise fine. Essentially a full body suit of armor. So this one thought to defend himself before their encounter. Well done. Still Sero had plans to achieve. He just needed to be clever now. Do things outside of the ordinary. A plan formed in his mind but for the time being his attention was quickly drawn elsewhere. As the goal of the mission was not just this one but the man on the dam as well.

    A loud crack in the dam boomed across the area. A series of web like cracks forming along it's surface. The damage to it had been too great and now water pressure was pushing through the cracks. Spraying out like a firehouse over the valley below. Aside from a power source Sero knew that Dams usually kept water levels from flooding a populated area. Farmers and such would be effected by this battle. People would lose their lives and their homes. Perhaps this man wasn't from Kumo. Perhaps he hadn't considered the consequences of fighting on the dam. Such powerful jutsu had destabilized the entire area. This was something that Sero could not tolerate. Because this man wished to fight him he had sacrificed lives. Innocent lives. Rage filled Sero at the selfish wickedness. He wouldn't be able to simply hide and wait for an opportunity now. Armor or no Sero was going to take down this enemy. He was going to cause him pain and terror. This man who had simply did as he wished was now one of the wicked Sero hunted in his mind. And the wicked always needed to be punished.

    Sero would emerge just enough from his water form with his hands to preform a tiger seal. A water clone of himself forming next to him. Once it took his appearance Sero would return to his full liquid form and slip onto it's back as just a hidden layer of water under the coat. This was playing the mans game now as he hid on the clone in hopes of luring him out. The clone itself would begin walking down the side of the burnt mountain. The smoke and flames from the burning tree's surrounding him but not hiding him as bare feet walked scorched earth without a care. Cold blue eyes seemed to stare at the man flying in the sky with no sense of mercy. That sense of dread returning to the battle field ever more with the rage Sero felt. There was one thing clear about this fight now. Sero was coming for blood. The killing intent flooded off of him like a pressure around the throat with each step he took. The fires surrounding him as he stopped a couple dozen meters away from Mort. Perhaps the devil had come to claim a soul. Whatever it was this was dangerous now.

    In a cold voice Sero spoke. It was like there were people whispering on the wind echoing his words all around. The whites of his eyes slowly turning black like swamp water around the ice blue eyes giving them a glowing nature. If Sero was anything he was not human. Still those words echoed in the air.

    "Little bird little bird. Do not flee from me. You have in your eagerness damaged that which keeps the valley below safe and now, now lives will suffer because of it. I will hunt you if you flee from me little bird. Face me here and now so I can pluck your wings."

    Description: By using water as a medium, the user can create one or more clones of themselves. While the clones can perform techniques, they only possess one-tenth of the user's chakra and cannot go too far from the original. The clones can also be used as medium to perform other Water Release techniques, as demonstrated by Kisame when he reverted their arms into water to perform the Water Prison Technique. When these clones are struck with a sufficient amount of force they will revert to their water form. The clones can be created anywhere within a 25 m. range of the user, unlike the Shadow Clone technique which requires clones to be created next to the user (such ranged spawning would require the clone to be spawned from a pre-existing source of water)
    Drawbacks: When casting this technique the user's stamina must be above 30% in order to maintain control over his/her clones. In addition, the user must maintain general concentration to maintain their clone's presence. If at any time the user is inflicted with heavy damage in contrast with their Constitution all clones will be dispersed. The user must be within 25 m. of their clone.

    Mort would stop his search as he heard the large cracking noise of the dam begin to break, slowly looking to turn at it before it took too much pressure and burst, several new senses of dread crawling into his mind. "Aw shit Ryuko's going to be pissed at us for that-ach." He'd flinch and rub his back as the actual impact of the fireball caught up with him. "Well at the very least people were evacuated to the upper lever earlier, at least I hope so." He had no idea, but if Malver was really that dumb not to move them to a safer location given the war and how important this location was, he could see why fear was what did him in.

    It tool him a little bit, and while he didn't see the clone form, he could feel the strange fear-inducing intent of the man from this far away as soon as he turned around and saw the man. Oh man, he really had royally messed up. It was to an extent like looking at a devil, but it was almost comforting, like looking at what could have been yet thankfully wasn't. "Little bird? That's a new one, and yeah, totally messed up there, but it isn't the first time that dam's broke. I think that's like the third or fourth dam made just in this location?" he wasn't sure, but he recalled the dam was used to block off some sort of cavern below in addition to it's normal faculties of being a dam. Problem was he couldn't recall what the cavern held or why it was blocked off.

    He'd make the tiger seal and a clone would form behind him in a puff of smoke, a green-eyed clone forming this time and dropping down to the ground as it drew the copied Weaklesness Soaring Shortswords, briefly using a signless jutsu to reduce the impact of hitting the ground to basically nothing, taking advantage of the jutsu to move five meters from the Hozuki. The clone would speak, the main body now purple-eyed as Id controlled it and stayed up in the air a good 40m still above the ground. While Id still had no fear of this man, they recognized they themselves had messed up and Mort was going to have to fix this mess. "But, lucky for you I can't flee. I started this dual, and, well I gotta finish it as well. The amount of fear coming off his clone lighting up like a beacon for those who could see it, and as soon as he drew it he'd move in to try and cut this annoyance several times in rapid succession to quickly reduce his remaining chakra. It wasn't pretty and he wasn't expecting the clone to last long, but boy if and when he got stabbed it would hurt.

    Sero would form one eye as he watched from the shadow of the hairline of his water clone. The flying man seemed to feel confident enough to talk while he was in battle with Sero. Well that wouldn't do. He would form his hands behind the clones back as he was careful to keep them out of line of sight. That armor was impressive but he was sure he could damage it. After all it was metal. Perhaps he could melt it to the man and make it his tomb. Wind seemed to be his prominent and perhaps only element so far. So fire was the route to go. Still this was aggravating. This person didn't seem concerned with Sero in the slightest. Like he wasn't a threat. What all was this one hiding in that head of his? Some sort of fool proof plan perhaps? If he did though it wasn't clear to Sero just yet. Surely he didn't plan to sit up there and ignore a threat. For now he focused on the hidden hand signs. Finding time while the young man talked. Tiger -> Rabbit -> Boar -> Dragon -> Monkey -> Dragon -> Dog -> Dragon. He could feel the katon gathering within him. Soon.

    Sero would see the tiger seal and already knew another clone was coming. So he intended to fight from a distance and tire Sero out? How amusing a thought. It would be a shame if his equipment melted to his body in an agonizing death. Already he could see steam rising off of it from the last jutsu. Still it held up well against it. Either way Sero was going to need to use stealth and surprise until he broke through. For now he slipped down his clones leg as the clone dropped and shifted into an advantageous angle. This jutsu was massive but it was good to keep it in a straight line. He waited until the clone rushed his own and released it. Feeling the nine chakra return to him as the water clone splashed to nothing right before the first sword strike could reach it. Only to find a large dragon head of fire seemingly erupting out of the ground point blank at the Mort clone and powering straight up at Mort himself from only the short distance between them seemingly out of no where. A massive dragon head of flame slamming upwards into the air. Sero himself was already back to liquid form and slithering twenty meters to the right to hide once more next to another large rock. One eye sticking out slightly from his liquid form inches around the rock to look for signs of his opponent.

    The dragon head would leave a haze of heat in its path as it had a tendency to burn so hot anything it touched turned to ash. The heat from it as it faded into the sky mixing with the moisture and rapidly forming unstable storm clouds in the sky. Thunder cracking above them as a shadow cast over the burning battlefield. Thunder threatening to break way to lightning. If Mort had survived the last attack he would want to get out of the sky soon. Where there was thunder in Kumo soon lightning would follow. And being a flying metal man would not do him any favors. Sero had considered this when he used to high heat jutsu so close to such a huge water source. The second jutsu was even known for forming storm clouds. The flying metal man was about to have an issue if his armor survived. Sero wasn't just using the terrain but nature itself.

    The clone was briefly confused when they didn't feel their swords hit the water clone, but it didn't last long as they were engulfed in flames. Immediately after, with just under a second to react Mort would fall from the sky, but not from his own choosing. No, his flying technique was broken from the shock of his clone being incinerated and the pain of said clone, causing him to fall. Thanks to this he avoided the draconic flame attack as his body went into free fall, and he would hit the ground with a solid thunk. His armor absorbed all of the impact, but once again given how it was loose he could feel some pain again as he hit the ground a little hard. He would lay there for a few seconds as his brain processed the pain. The second technique pulled away the residual heat of the first, though while he wasn't smoking anymore he was still warmed then he'd liked, better warm in this cold environment then chilled though. He'd think to himself, 'Geezus, You fight with a clone, you get a clone. Least I didn't get burned.'

    Looking up, he'd take note of the surrounding weather, but he wasn't worried. No, he knew the signs for when lightning was about to strike someone, and could easily move if needed. Forming the Horse, Tiger, Ox, Snake, Monkey, and Ram signs, he'd turn invisible by using the transparent Escape Technique. It was something he had practiced before, but he hadn't seem much use for it in combat give he was limited by how fast he could go. He couldn't even fly with it given that the air would disturb the technique, though he had slowly been figuring out a way to get around that, it was slow going, just like his speed. He'd then get up and slowly make his way to where the water clone used to be, taking advantage of the burnt ground to hide his footsteps, as while he couldn't move fast, he could still be careful with how he moved. If it was a water clone like he suspected, his opponent couldn't be that far away, and perhaps that could be a good starting point to search for the hidden Hozuki. Hopefully going invisible would trick the Hozuki into giving up, or at least give him enough time to spot wherever this water boy was, as even with him avoiding the attack, the heat from it was something he was sure was going to kill him if it hit, or at the very least severely main.

    Sero was able to watch as the figure fell from the sky avoiding the fire attack entirely. Landing underneath where he was before suddenly he faded from vision. Well now that was going to be an issue. No longer could Sero track their position. He watched for a couple of seconds before contemplating a new strategy. Something was already stirring within him at the challenge. The thunder boomed overhead and the sky seemed to crackle with energy. Slowly a few droplets fell before suddenly rain began to fall upon the mountain. Not enough to reveal either of their positions but puddles began to form everywhere. The sky cracked again before the damn crashed outwards. The valley below filling with water of incredible depth. Any living creature below being swept away in a powerful torrent of water. Tree's ripped up from the ground with solid pieces of the dam being pushed around under the water. It's heavy waves crashing and ensuring that anything that was within it was more than dead. Which gave Sero an idea. So he would move quietly from puddle to puddle behind rocks to maintain his hidden position further up the mountain by about ten meters. Regaining the high ground he hoped from wherever his opponent was. Still careful to avoid any of the trees now being put out by the rain and being above any rocks. Hopefully the metal man would attract any lightning in the area but Sero wouldn't take the chance.

    Forming his hands and face from behind a rock Sero would begin to form hand signs again. The jutsu he had in mind covered a massive area so if his opponent was still in the area he would get caught in it and dragged away into the torrent of the broken damn below. Armor or no escaping the flood from the broken damn and the jutsu would be difficult. Especially weighed down. Quickly Sero formed the hand seal for Snake while remaining hidden. As soon as he was done he would shift just to the side of the rock to release a huge torrent of water. Not aware of his enemies position but from thirty meters away a tidal wave covering a huge section of the mountain they were on would burst forth from Sero's mouth and wash away everything down into the surging water from the dam at B rank speed. He had been careful to be above so as not to get washed away himself.

    If he could not break the armor...he would drown the man in it.
