Decapre - Shadaloo vs. NESTS: Hot vs. Cold

Description: After crashing the NESTS transport, Shadaloo Doll Decapre is sent in to eliminate K9999 from the equation. Will her cool, precise style match up with the unfiltered rage of the NESTS experiment?

War had been declared against NESTS; an important transport of cutting edge medical devices developed for Atelier, things even Shadaloo would desire getting their hands upon, had been assaulted by a VTOL large transport and a dropped Mike Bison. Three out of four escort cars were destroyed, exhausting the defensive countermeasures of the vehicle, and it seemed at first that the armored semi-like vehicle would get away... until reaching a traffic jam headed by none other than Sagat himself.
After it was uppercut hard enough to kill the drivers inside and send the frontal part flaming, the escort vehicle pulled beside and began a somewhat futile firefight with the assembled forces. Armored enough to resist assault rifles held them out for a short time, and what few remaining Bastion forces in the transport unload from the firing ports. It's hell, but Sagat's looming form and the small group are not the problems Decapre is having.
The transport that the Doll is heading has been caught by an interceptor; an extremely fast and specialized vehicle in anti-air. One missile was shot down in a burst of chaff, another by flares, but the third and fourth... nothing. Decapre is forced to abandon ship a few hundred meters away from the target highway dropzone, and somehow land amidst the trees and brush as the vehicle explodes overhead.
The interceptor whirls around, VTOL engaging before suddenly the doors in the back explode open. "LET ME OUT!!" roars a loud voice, as a slender caped individual lunges to freefall in seemingly suicidal fashion.
Breaking through branches, a burst of telekinetic chi suddenly catches K9999, creating a huge divet in the ground. The slender clone then touches down lightly, breathing heavily as he begins to scan around with a savage eye. "SCREW EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS... ME AND ANGEL WERE GOING TO HAVE ICECREAM!! POINT ME AT THE TARGET! WHERE?!"
His right arm suddenly splits into a warped assembly of flesh and bone, firing a blast of telekinetic force that annihilates a nearby tree into naught but splinters. "HERE?!" Another blast shatters a boulder. "HERE?!" Twisting around, he then blows a huge hole into the very ground, debris and rubble falling around him as he twitches in rage and aggravation.
"SHOW YOURSELF, GODDAMNIT!! I'LL KILL YOU!!" Decapre would recieve her orders; the man in question is a 'wild card'. He is to be 'dealt with'. She should know exactly what that means.

Decapre has her orders. This unstable individual is in the way of Lord Vega's plans; therefore, he must be eliminated. It's a simple operational plan. She wasn't expecting, per se, to have the transport blown out of the sky, but she was prepared for it--her dive was graceful, her landing silent.

As K9999 obliterates trees in his rage and starts going off, Decapre moves to avoid his notice. He knows she's out there--and she'll have to announce her presence presently--but that doesn't mean she needs to necessarily confront him head-on. She's scanning him, first, not just with her senses but with the built-in sensory in her mask. Her words, muttered softly in a Russian accent, are as much for herself as for her handlers. "Unstable power readings. Unknown technology. Probable augmentation implants."

Another move, and she leaps to the top of another boulder, flat against the top of it. "Target confirmed. Mission start." For a moment she considers her options--then she jumps from the top of the boulder down to land in front of K9999--about twenty yards away--and raises her arms in her fighting stance.

There's a sense of extreme instability within K9999, but little else; the wild-looking youth has on a pair of gloves like most of the other clones, but seems capable of some degree of transformation with a wild orange vest and that shoddy red cape with black pants seguing into boots. He's looking around with growing impatience, roaring and snarling before beginning to head in the direction of the fight when an explosion is heard at the distant highway. He'lll just kill everyone over there, then...! Only for Decapre to rain from the sky. There's absolutely no hesitation, his face almost wickedly scrunched in what seems to be agonized hatred. "WHY DO YOU GUYS HAVE TO GET IN MY WAY?!" He's already rushing towards her, kicking forward in a billowing burst of augmenting chi that hurtles him into a wicked swing. His right hand whirls around, forming a sharp and nasty blade that he slashes at the girl's midsection in passing as he tries to close the distance, rocks and broken dirt tumbling along in his wake behind. "Haa... haa... I never get a BREAK from killing stupid people like you!!"

That sense of instability would be worrying to Decapre if she were the worrying type. Instead she files it away as useful information. Of course, coming out grabs his attention, and with that, his violence. Thare's no response to his question--maybe she thinks it's rhetorical--but as he grows that blade and launches himself, Decapre is getting ready, shifting her stance slightly.

When he slashes, she's ready--interposing her forearms, she catches the blade in the crook of a 'V' formed by her armored forearms, preventing any of that intended damage. Stepping her body at an oblique angle to K9999's charge helps, too, and after he passes, well, it's her turn; there's a sharp, rasping metallic sound as her own blades deploy--from her gauntlets, not her hands--their edges lined with a fierce, purple-white glow that leaves trails as they move.

She steps into K9999's path 'behind' him, aiming to strike as he's still recovering--intending to carve an 'X' into his back, to cut deep, painful gashes into his flesh.

"Don't you IGNORE ME!!" roars the unstable K-Quad whne Decapre just catches the blade. 'Catches' is an understatement, it feels like a massive man had just swung a sledgehammer... she's lucky it didn't cleave through and take the arm with it. Whatever might be going on with this man, he has an exceptional amount of raw strength. His right arm ignites into fire after the makeshift blade retracts, twisting back to launch an assault. He's struck hard, but a moment later he's hurtling back at the girl, intent on unleashing a brutal point-blank explosion of energy to send her flying backwards!! "STOP MOVING AROUND!! Who the hell are you?! Not that I care... you'll be a corpse soon enough!!" He seems to fight with savage instinct and little else, but it's clear if any of those moves touch her... she might be in trouble.

Her armored gauntlets are made of some tough stuff. That raw strength is definitely noted in the mind behind those red lenses. K9999 is all rage, uncontrolled or barely controlled, unleashed like the spitting end of a live wire. It's almost the opposite of Decapre, precise and silent. But there's something to be said for K9999's approach. The explosion of energy finds its mark, Decapre forced to take the brunt of it--which she does expertly, deflecting much of the impact from herself, riding that shockwave out.

Once she lands, she applies some of her own speed, too, re-extending those blades and rushing K9999's position down, lashing out with her psionically-powered blades in a flurry of attacks, ending with a sweeping, low to high arcing cut.

K9999            1/------=/=======|=======\==-----\1          Decapre

Contrast meets contrast, but rage has no real direction. It is unfocused, and a calm blade can slice through it with ease. After the flames die down, sizzling glove reforming anew, K9999 lunges forward with another deep, angry growl. The slashes rip into him, although his form tenses explosively, before he once more manifests that strange, gun-like protrubrance. "STOP THAT!! GET THE FUCK OFF!!" A huge explosion of dust and sheer kinetic force from his massive chi is leveled before him, trying to knock Decapre away like some kind of swatted insect. He grasps his blood seeping from his shredded vest, looking at it dumbly. "You... you /cut/ me..." As if being hurt is unusual; normally, he is sent to terrify people, and difficult fights are quite rare!

K9999            1/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1          Decapre

It's that very lack of focus that keeps Decapre in this fight. K9999 is naturally more powerful--more destructive--than the Doll. But without the ability to properly focus it, it leaves openings that the Shadaloo agent can take advantage of. Must take advantage of, in order to survive, let alone succeed. K9999's freakish ability to contort and deform his limbs is noted dispassionately, a level of ability far beyond what Decapre has seen before, as she nimbly evades that explosion, judging its area of effect perfectly and staying just outside its range.

"Lock on," she says, half to herself, and then she resumes her attack. She has to improvise--so she feints another charge, jolting towards K9999--only to stop short. But the cloud of dust she kicks up isn't for naught--it hides the real attack, a softball-sized stone she hooked on the toe of one booted foot and flung with a flick of the leg--for K9999's forehead.

Such a simple feint works perfectly well on K9999, who finds his nose split open with a massive rock, doubling over and almost falling when he began to advance. "Bitch... impossible... nobody can kill me... nobody!!" His right arm begins to warble and bulge, and with a loud roar of defiance his fist clenches, gaining control over his instability once more. He suddenly lunges low towards the ground, before stamping down and unleashing a raw, reckless kick that seems to be launched everywhere at once; trying to slam it into her midsection with stone-shattering force, as if the best way to deal with somebody who's so elusive is simply to attack *harder*!!

The impact is simply tremendous. Decapre knew letting K9999 get a hit on her would be disastrous--and that proves it in an instant. Even though he's largely unfocused, that -randomness- to him, that touch of chaos, makes him unpredictable, and the kick lands solidly in Decapre's midsection. It folds her up--sends her flying--and breaks a couple of ribs, at least. To her testament, she doesn't make a sound--she's eerily quiet save for the involuntary gasp as the air is driven from her lungs. Still, as she rises, the effect is obvious--her breathing is labored, and she favors that side, impaired, but not incapacitated. Inside that mask, damage estimates scroll across the outer edge of her vision. She ignores them. And... she closes in again. Deploying only one blade, she strikes twice, quickly, a jabbing forward strike followed by a quick horizontal cut, that purple Psycho Power leaving fading afterimages in the air.

K9999            0/-------/--=====|=======\=====--\1          Decapre

Suddenly K9999 begins to glow with power, surging fire up his frames as his eyes glow. He roars, lunging forward; simply trying to get close enough to unleash whatever he has built up. The shadow of death might be seen within it, th sheer magnitude something certainly worthy of fear. The first strike staggers him, and the second cut is what he lunges at. The afterimage gets engulfed in a huge pillar of fire and energy, roaring up dozens of meters as heat washes in all directions. He's left panting in it's wake, stumbling forward, to almost fall to his knees. "Stupid... girl..." he coughs out bloodily. "I finally got you...!!" Does he not even realize that she escaped out of sight? Thumping down to a knee, he ignites his hands before scorching the wound closed with a cry of pain, pounding at the ground with his free hand. "Damnit! Damnit! Damnit!!"

This is war. There's no letting up. Decapre certainly can't afford to let K9999 recover. Up until this point the Psycho Power she's displayed has been... confined. Localized. No longer. She'll wipe this thing from existence--or at least from conscious existence. Holding her right hand up, she concentrates, though the effort of doing this is clearly painful, and swirling blue-purple-black energy starts to form in her hand. Building, within a matter of a second or two, into a virtual storm. Finally, the buildup is too much, even for her--and she releases a yell, a wordless, cathartic scream as she unleashes that storm of energy--straight for K9999, a swirling, man-sized ball of death... and one from which Decapre needs a moment to recover from utilizing. A perfect clone? Perhaps not quite.

K9999            1/----===/=======|==-----\-------\0          Decapre

The sudden spike of energy is sensed even by someone as dense as K9999, who whirls around with wide eyes upon seeing the sheer size of the onslaught. He just begins to laugh like a maniac, before his right arm begins to surge and wildly shift out of control. "HAHAH... HAHAHA... YES!! TRY IT!! EVERYONE'S WANTED ME TO DIE, LET'S SEE YOU PULL IT OFF!!" He then makes a token leap backwards, only for the horrendous assault to tear into him wildly. When it fades away to show purple wisps of energy, he's still standing, and desperately holding on. To what? Consciousness? Or the strange flares of veins running up and down his limb? "I'll... never die..." His wildly surging arm suddenly starts to grow and bulge, as he roars, and a great wall of sheer chi and energy rushes out in all directions, filling the entire area with his rampant destruction. Not quickly; but certainly fast enough that getting out of the way would be prudent. "NEVER!! GAAAAAAH!!!"

COMBATSYS: K9999 can no longer fight.

Amazing resilience. Decapre doesn't get to see the immediate results of her handiwork--she's too busy trying to avoid K9999's final burst. And only being mostly successful, despite her best efforts--even avoiding most of it, she still takes a significant amount of damage. It doesn't show on her physically--but the physical damage that remains from that one tremendous kick is enough. Decapre returns to the area after the storm passes, then touches her mask. "Mission accomplished." Unnecessarily, she continues, "Unit injured. Calling for transport to return to base." And then she waits. Either she'll be picked up... or she'll have to make her way back herself. Either way... she accomplished her mission. That gives her a sense of satisfaction.

COMBATSYS: Decapre has ended the fight here.
