Neo League 0001 - NL#0047: Chisaki vs Lee Chaolan

Description: Chisaki was becoming troubled. Her encounter with Testament was disturbing her to the bone, making her question herself, and her role in the world. A young lady feeling so 'different' at her age was hardly unusual. And while she had hoped to find respite in her first Neo-League fight, Lee Chaolan has other plans on how to get under her skin... <Winner: Lee Chaolan>

Everyone has to start somewhere, and this so happens to be Chisaki Tohsaki's first fight in the Neo League. She issued a challenge to another fighgter, and now the sixteen year-old girl is at the top of the Sunshine 60 Hotel's roof. Her hands are on her hips, and she watches the city below with a few distant thoughts. The words with Testament echo through her head, an unwelcome distraction. She tries to banish them.

When she shivers, though, it isn't from the glance at Outer Sunshine and its squalor. It isn't even from the chilly January wind, though that helps.

No, she has a lot on her mind.

The brown-haired sixteen year-old stands atop the roof, her jacket on, and takes a good look around. There's a few spectators -- some bored tourists -- and she eyes them awkwardly, not sure what to do. Her father wasn't good with the crowds, and she doesn't have Athena's showmanship. She waits for her opponent, idly.

Her first time, huh?

Lee Chaolan was not respectable in his own Neo League outings. After his bout with Gato, he had held off on the Neo-League. He was waiting. He knew that Heihachi had done all this as a 'present' to him. And now, he was probably enraging him by holding off. At least, that is what Lee used to think. But with Kuma rising through the ranks... it seemed that the old man had found his own ways to entertain himself.

Well, two could play that game.

The next opponent... did not matter. Just a 16 year old girl, a mere child in the Neo-League. Her problems were unimportant to the Silver-Haired Demon.

And he had found his prey.

Lee Chaolan was late, of course. As he emerges from the doorway of the rooftop access, the executive was dressed in his blue-violet leather vest, with leather pants to boots. His steel-toed shoes were dead silent on the roofing, a sign of the graceful footwork that was to come. The middle-aged martial artist swaggers in, adjusting his gloves idly. And there, he just sing-songs disappointment, clicking his tongue.


Sunshine City really is the armpit of the United States." He approaches Chisaki

And he doesn't even look at her in the eyes.

He just casually glances over the young lady. And the atmosphere he gives is... judgement. The handsome man just continues to inspect her like a piece of meat, working his eyes up her body, before finally settling not on her eyes, but her forehead. "Hmph! You have awfully dark skin. A proper lady should have fair, pale skin. I suppose you can't expect attractive opponents in the Neo-League." He shrugs, shaking his head. Lee suddenly mimes a gasp. "Oh!"

"You weren't waiting on me, were you?~"

The fact that Lee is older than Chisaki doesn't intimidate her. She has fought a middle-aged man before. She turns to face the silver-haired demon, regarding him for a moment, before she scowls at his remark. He's judging her; he's even being outright racist. Her eyes narrow at him, red and just slightly eerie; the emotion on her face is not a particularly happy one.

"The hell did you just say to me?" she grumbles, quietly. She had been nervous; in a sense, he does her a favor. Anger takes care of her nervousness. "I guess I was a little. Let's get on with it, huh?"

She frowns sharply at him, as she reaches out with her right hand, and rolls up the left sleeve of her windbreaker. She brings her left arm back -- and then it does the opposite of flash. A pulse of darkness shoots down from the elbow to her fingertips, and turns her arm a midnight black color. The fingers extend and sharpen, into wicked claws. Motes of black and purple energy drift off it.

"I'm pretty shitty," she observes, her scowl becoming a grin, "at being a proper lady, huh?"

"Oh, what did I say?~"

Lee Chaolan just keeps that aloof smirk on his face, as he lets her be angry. He just doesn't seem to care. "Well, I was just remarking about how... rather plain you are! Those you seem to be utterly used to those comments, so I am pleased I am not alone~" He chuckles lightly, as he puts his thumb and index finger on his chin. "Except for your skin, of course. How can one be so dark?~"

And she shows just how dark she could be.

".... Hm~" He expresses thoughtfully. "It seems you at least have a medical condition to justify it, then~" The silver-haired demon idles, tossing his hair. "Well then, you've certainly made this no longer a waste of my time then." The martial artist shakes his arms out, as he eases back on his feet. Bringing one hand forward, one hand back, he leans, assuming his fighting stance. He reaches out for Chisaki, beckoning her to approach. And with a mischevious grin, he winks.

Her blood gets up even more at that. Chisaki's eyebrow twitches; she feels a rush of anger at the words, the insult to her heritage, and the insult to her looks. Something catches in her throat, and she feels and hears a howl from within her. That thing she found in the Himalayas reaches out, and makes a simple demand: act out of anger. This time, Chisaki listens.

She shouts wordlessly and charges. She doesn't need to be invited twice. The girl leaps into the air as she runs, moving with surprising speed across the rooftop. When she leaps, she kicks some of the gravel on the roof behind her, and she swings her left foot out. She comes crashing down at Lee from above.

She spins in the air; kicking hard with her left foot, and pivoting at her waist to swing her right foot in a brutal, one-two kick combination at the man's chest.

Of course she was getting mad.

As the arrogant Lee continues his taunting, he neatly feeds off the rage. Not that he shows it. No, he just urges her to come along. And she charges, hurling herself straight for the Silver-Haired Demon. The smirk tightens a moment, as he closes his hand. As she takes to the air, the martial artist moves. He doesn't move away, though.

He moves in.

As she takes to the air, Lee rushes forward into the Mist Step. Ducking down as he approaches, the sheer speed and agility kicks up the rooftop gravel behind him. Lee Chaolan just surges underneath the first kick, and was turning as the second comes, just inches from making contact. The man's age betrayed the incredible speed of the man's technique. He was now nearly on top of where Chisaki was landing.

And was already preparing for the follow up.

"And short tempered as well? What do your friends think~" The martial artist coos as he hurls out a high kick. Whipping it high, he seems to whip it too high up. It does not come even close to hitting Chisaki, just a wild hit straight up into the sky. Bringing the kick down, he throws out a straight kick with his other leg, firing straight past Chisaki, right behind her back.

Another feint.

All as she was recovering, he was toying with her? "Of course, why should you have friends?~ A woman with your condition, with an arm like that... well, to be honest, those who could tolerate your appearances, would probably shun you for that repulsive personality!" A third kick comes again, from the first leg, in a full roundhouse kick. Ripping the kick around, straight to Chisaki's middle, the martial artist commits this time. He would smash that leg hard in her torso.
%All with that same smirk on his face.

She grits her teeth when he manages to duck away from her attacks, her kicks never striking anything but thin air. Some fighters would be despondent; she gets frustrated, and that pushes her forward. The taunts don't stop, either, and that gets under her skin. She lets out a long, low hiss as she ducks down and the first kick swings out over her head. Then she steps aside from the second kick.

But then the roundhouse kick comes, and Chisaki kicks off the ground. As his foot rises, she does a midair backflip around the roundhouse, neatly fitting her body in the space around it. She is already bringing her hand backward at the kick, her eyes lighting up with that anger.

"You sure got a mouth on you, pal!" she bellows, as her left hand -- the one turned into shadow, wickedly sharp claws pulled backward -- strikes out in front of her.

She launches a mighty, hefty swing down with her hand. Shadow trails after her, like the twisted tail of a comet -- and she slashes down with her clawed fingers, trying to strike across his chest with a powerful swipe of her clawed, shadow-wreathed hand.

She was nimble too.

After the third kick comes rolling out, Lee Chaolan lets it continue on. As the girl just barely slips past the kick, however, she was on the Silver-Haired Demon. The strange claws that afflict her are lashed out, and with such close quarters, Lee Chaolan has no choice but to bring his arm up. Throwing up his right arm, he manages to catch the claw with a glancing deflect, knocking it aside by letting his forearm take the impact. Blood is drawn, as he takes quick steps to circle the girl.

And he laughs.

"So do you, my dear~" He idles playfully, as he inspects his bloodied arm. Continuing his fast footwork, he continues to move swiftly in a tight circle around the strange girl. "Such a wide mouth, with lips like blubber! You aren't afflicted by allergies, are you~" The older man continues to pick at the teenage girl's self-esteem, pick, pick pick. This time, the martial artist hurls out another kick to the middle. Perhaps this one would fake out like before, until it is clear he commits. He aims to smash it squarely into Chisaki's gut...

And the kick lands in her gut.

It doesn't hit. That is, it doesn't -smash- into her. Lee Chaolan just gently pulls all the impact from the kick, placing it softly but firmly on her tummy. Fixing it into place, the Silver Haired Demon uses it as a point to step up. Hooking his other leg around, he sweeps it right around her neck. And the true attack comes: Lee slams both her and himself to the ground, smashing her to the ground.

And it does not take long for Lee to get back on his feet.

It takes Chisaki a good few seconds more to get back to hers.

When the kick hits her, it's a tap into her stomach -- and then she gets lifted up, and smashed into the ground. She grunts and rolls a couple times, before she comes up. She spits blood into the ground, then wipes her lip on her right sleeve. "Shut the fuck up," she spits. "You don't know shit about me."

She swings her shadow-covered arm out. It splits up the middle, the fingers fusing into two shadowy tendrils -- which turn into a single claw. She grabs at the man's waist, trying to pincer Lee in the claw -- and then throw him up into the air.

She lets out a loud yell and jumps, twisting into the air and spinning -- and swings her left leg around, slamming a midair roundhouse at him to follow-up wthe eerie blow with her arm. "Is this some kinda game to you!? Coming out here and talking shit to the people you fight!?"

The anger, in this case, is made worse by the fact he is winning -- and that gets under her skin.

Lee lets her take her time.

The martial artist simply waits, standing in place. He is not so bold to drop his guard; after all, she did draw blood.

"Oh no, no no. I don't normally do that at all~"

Those were the words as he twists his body around in the air. As the finishing kick comes, he suddenly bends. The leg passes right the crook of his bent body, narrowly eluding the kick. Lee Chaolan had trouble with the claws. But the kicks, he seemed perfectly natural with. As he lands on his feet awkwardly, he tosses his hair again, running his fingers through them. "But I normally don't end up fighting such a..." He glances at Chisaki.

"Such a freak~"

There wasn't much time. The words would only work so long. Lee Chaolan rushes in as the words sink in, blitzing forward with the same agility that she had blitzed in. He dips low, sweeping his leg fast to trip her... but pulls the leg short, coming in nowhere near to attacking. Rising up with the momentum, he hurls out the same leg high, aiming for her face. And there, he just strikes out with the same leg, in blazing speed, again and again, four times rapidly. A fifth kick comes... before faking out, and breaking away.

And Lee attempts to finish with a roundhouse of his other leg.

Chisaki's stomach lurches when he says that. The way he dodged the kick doesn't hit home the way that word does. It's something she thought about herself before, seeing what she could do -- and, more than that, what she became. A lot of fighters were on her level -- or, as she is seeing firsthand, well past it -- but they didn't have parts of their body become some kind of monstrous limb. Sada's revulsion comes to mind, too, and Nightwolf's words seem far away now.

Then Lee follows it up. His foot threatens to sweep her legs out from under her, so she jumps -- and then he kicks her in the face, slamming her backward. Her head snaps up, short brown hair flying out, spittle flying across the rooftop surface. The kicks slam into her torso rapidly, each with a loud crack. The fifth hits with a snap of broken ribs, and she goes flying back.

Her back slams into the air conditioning unit; the industrial-sized, aluminum plated thing dents in sharply, and cooling water sprays out every which way. She stumbles away from it, bloodied and beaten, her head ringing.


Her eyes widen in that uneven, enraged way. The spirit that gave her this screams in her mind, bays for blood, and she doesn't deny it. She runs and leaps into the air, doing a smart midair somersault. She comes down kicking; two quick, spinning roundhouses that slam at his left and then his right, before she lands. Her boots shift in the gravel, blood and sweat hitting the floor. She is exhausted; she ignores it.

Chisaki punches the shadowy clawed limb out; it recombined somewhere in that. Rapid, quick punches fly, until she leaves nothing but a blur of black and violet light in her wake. At the end of it, she pulls her arm back. "Freak?!" she snarls. "Fine, I'll show you what a fucking freak looks like!"

Her arm rips apart, splitting into a trio of shadowy, inky tentacles -- with the strength of steel. They begin whipping and striking rapidly, slamming at Lee's sides and pummeling away at him in a terrible blur of darkness, cut through by a faint glow in her red eyes.

And here was the thing that Lee wanted to outrace.

He knew it was a piercing insult. He knew that if she was still standing, she would hurl out as much hate as she could muster into him. But as the martial artist unleashes his feint, chaining into a series of kicks that finishes into a feint to roundhouse, he had hoped he got around that, by not letting her stand. And yet, after her launches her into an air conditioning unit, he stands there, waiting. Watching. That smirk on his face. And as she finally rises up, the smirk fades. "Ugh." He states flatly.


The rage comes. And with it, that blasted claw. Decades of martial training and experience are for naught as Lee, as alert as he has ever been, focusing hard on the girl, faces down the alien experience of the tentacles surging towards him. He does manage to successfully block and parry the first few tentacles, evading and deflecting it with neat skill. But all it takes is one misstep for a tentacle to drive into his chest. And soon, the perfect defense becomes a desperate defense to minimize the damage. He is overwhelmed by the throng of limbs, tearing his legs, his arms, his entire body.

By the time he rips free, sores pock his entire body from toe to tip.

His clothing was torn open where the bloodied sores ooze blood. And yet, the smirk was back as he finally frees from the tentacle assault, and was now running up stream. "Is this what I have to deal with? A monster? You should crawl back to whatever hole you crawled out of, freak!" Was the harsh words Lee lets loose with playful tone. Sing songing, he closes in on Chisaki... and runs past her.

And encircles her, letting her turn to him.

Lee hurls out a forward kick, aimed for Chisaki's torso. As he turns to unleash another forward kick, he drops it should, stepping to the side. Casually, he tosses out a backfist towards the girl's face. With a crack, he unleashes another punch, which he feints into trying to lightly pinch her cheek. Stepping to the side again, he snaps out a kick to launch her in the air... and then, should he manage to get her in the air, he will flip forward to catch her between his legs.

And slam her, head first, into the roofing.

Chisaki grits her teeth, seeing the wounds she inflicted. She doesn't know if it was the tendrils of shadow or an illness or worse -- and it wasn't enough to keep Lee down. She lets out a shout, and tries to bring her arm back together into an arm. The fist to the face connects before she cans, slamming her backward; the second pinches her cheek, and she yelps. It sets her up perfectly.

She goes up into the air -- and then Lee slams her down into the roof with a loud crunch. The roofing material cracks underneath her when she strikes into into it, and Chisaki groans softly. She rolls away from him, before she looks in his direction.

"Bastard," she spits. She gets up -- barely. She sags, one knee almost giving out. Her temper has flared; so has a sense of shame. Freak. She might be a freak, but it still wasn't enough. She turns, and then she bolts off, jumping for a fire escape. It rattles and squeaks when she hits it, and starts running down the stairs.

She leaves him to his victory -- and a good bit of her pride behind, too.

COMBATSYS: Chisaki takes no action.

He didn't want to deal with that claw again.

Her martial ability was familiar, instinctive for the Silver-Haired Demon. But the claw? It was like fighting Kuma. Except Kuma was predictable. That thing was not predictable. After he had a few more rounds with her, maybe he would get comfortable. But for now, the freak was... dangerous. Not that he wasn't curious on the origin of this girl. But right now, he had a more important job.


As he finishes slamming her into the roof, Lee Chaolan rises up, back into his fighting stance. He was still bleeding, still oozing. These were new wounds for the old man! But as she rises back up, he prepares to continue the fight, a smirk on his lips. Instead, she runs. She flees, wounded and hurt. A forfeit. He just watches her, head cocked, as she escapes. And after a moment, he straightens his back, dropping his guard.

Lee Chaolan claps.

"Ah ha ha! What a nice young lady." He says, as she is well out of ear shot. "A shame she wasn't more confident. I actually thought she was quite pretty. Oh, the claw thing was quite disturbing, yes. But it really is disappointing that young ladies these days just don't have the self-esteem for high profile fights. Well... some of them. Others like Athena are just..." And Lee Chaolan turns to one of the judges. He gives him a wink, before flashing a thumbs up.
