Description: While taking a tour of New York, Koto encounters Victoria being mugged but misunderstands it as a DarkStalker attack on an innocent. A fight ensues as a mutual test of skills!
A bright flash of white light envelops a otherwise dark room, the only break in the darkness being a small white backdrop that has numerous pillows and props that mirror iconic symbols and pictures of nordic background. The decorations sometimes look like stylized axes and swords, and the pillows are made to look like wolves. While a bit corney and cheesy, the focus is not on those. The flash had illuminated a rather striking looking woman. She wears what could be best described as a -sexy- version of what might be viking armour. However, the only thing that sets her apart from that image is the rather large pair of white wings on her back. Most don't really seem to pay them any mind, as most of the people walking around are just taking pictures.
Another flash lights the room, as the woman hugs the wolf pillow. Smiling at the camera as the people around her start telling her other things to do.
Another flash, the woman is bent over. Her rear in the air, and both her arms reaching down as she balances herself on the stylized axe. It gives quite a nice view of her chest.
Finally a last flash, this time the woman seems to be lying down with her arms above her head. Her wings splayed out giving the potential audience a view of her beautiful form.
It wasn't too much longer, before the woman -finally- is finished and finally takes on a much more regular stance. A couple of men walk up to her and begin talking.
"Great work!" One says
"We're glad we found you, we've been waiting for a more -fantasy- like model to use in our magazine." Another says
Only the final agent seems to draw the woman's attention. "Don't worry Ms. Ollisdottir. Keep giving us shots like this and we'll move you up into the mainstream in no time." The woman smiles and shows off her brilliant white teeth. "You can just call me Vicky." Her voice soft, but yet having almost another worldly firmness to it. After a few more minutes of back and forth, Victoria finally moves into one of the dressing rooms. A few other models look at her, but she seems rather distracted and offers them no glance back. Trying not to draw attention to herself and her wings, Victoria throws on an almost humorously oversized trench-coat. Gathering the last of her things, the woman makes her way towards the exit door.
Luckily for Victoria, she had a small studio apartment a few blocks away. However, this is New York at dusk and it often invites trouble to even the most careful of people. It was only a matter of time before the up and coming model was accosted by a group of rather tough looking men. Wasting no time, one of them quickly pulled out a switchblade and flicked it open. "Your money, girl!" There were two others that quickly surrounded her, making it quite apparent that she was NOT gonna get out of this easily.
"I wouldn't do this...." Victoria breathed out, not wanting to push their aggression any higher. It was in vain, and the knife wielding ganster lunged right at the model. The scene happened so fast, as Victoria's cheek tattoos blazed to like in azure glory. The robber's wrist was quickly grabbed and was snapped back. A howl leaves the man as the weapon is quickly dropped as the wrist is bent in a very unnatural position. Luckily for Victoria, the others that had surrounded her decided to vacate at the showing of strength, and the rather unearthly glow coming from the woman.
Victoria pulled the man in closer, her breath causing frost to now appear on the side of his face as she spoke. "Ill break you....little man...." She warned. Lifting up his arm higher, one could now audibly hear a small crack of his wrist.
This caused him to scream out. "STOP! FUCK! HELP ME!!!
And low and behold, Koto had been walking the streets. With school out, he had decided to travel a bit. Go around and see things. So here he was way outside of his usual haunts in Southtown. And well...
The teenager has recently started to understand that all the tingling in his head means something is 'wrong'. So far, there are two types. The obvious being those that had 'power' like his. The other? He had only recently started to understand that one. The ability to sense some of the... monsters that go bump in the night. DarkStalkers. When that goes off, he usually knows to either check it out or get to safety. When the tingle that signals the latter goes off, he stops where he is and begins to look around.
Turning as he hears the cry for help, the young man races down an alleyway, bringing an arm up as he does. "Henshin!" His arm sweeps across quickly as he runs, a prismatic glow covering him and leaving him in his hero costume as he comes out of the alleyway and sees the... well, that definitely doesn't look right.
"Release him!" He calls out towards the woman holding the man up. "I do not know what he has done to you, monster, but if you want to fight someone then you can face me! Mega Dragon Fighter J-Dragon!"
Victoria continued to wrench the man's arm and wrist for a moment or two, letting it sink in that she was not to be trifled with. That's when some sort of weirdo in a costume shows up and demands the she let go of her would be assailant. Her eyes continue to burn with that azure glow, as they shift to look at the young man. She regards him for a second, all while the robber continues to yell out in pain.
Something deep within Victoria stirs at the arrival of this street sideshow, something instinctual. "Maybe....Im looking for a fight..." She whispers out. While normally the woman isn't violent, she cannot help her Darkstalker nature. It drives her actions at time, over her more sensible self.
Still, she doesn't know if this costumed person is part of the robbers posse. She isn't gonna allow them to harm her, and with a small toss, the man is sent flying into a nearby brick wall. He gets battered up, but seems more or less in the -alive- category of things.
Unbuttoning her trench coat, the womans speaks out to the youth. "Mega....dragon, is it?" She asks, and tosses the coat to the side. "I'd very much like to see what you can do..." With those words, he wings flair out. Cold winds begins to emanate from her form, a cold that can freeze to the bone.
Glancing to the man that hit the wall, J-Dragon looks back to Victoria, sliding himself into a combative stance. "Hey, it's just a name lady. And J-Dragon is what I am called."
His hands slide into something like a boxer's posture, with his feet in a solid looking stance as he feels the cold.
"Huh... nice trick..." He says out loud, eyeing Victoria. Especially the wings. That's so not going to be pleasant for him if he's stuck as a ground based fighter.
Victoria slowly turns his lips up into a smile. "J-Dragon, then?" She asks, her tattoos glowing even brighter now as she gets his name. That push to fight seems to over power the young lady, as she brings her wings towards her body. In a way, she knows that she shouldn't simply just go and attack people, but the thrill of combat is sometimes just too much for the Darkstalker to bear. Still, she tries to give J-dragon an out, and begins to pull in energy to herself.
"If you're really in it to win it, lets see what you can do!"
Thats when she unfurls her wings yet again, and magic energy pours out of her. It saturates the area with her power, as she prepares to engage the youth.

The youth slides into a looser stance, hands loosening as he concentrates it seems. His own power flaring as prismatic energy surrounds him.
"Fine... if it will make you leave that man alone, I'll show you what I can do!" J-Dragon declares as he prepares himself, unsure what in the world he is facing. The energy is strange to him, and the fact that it is a DarkStalker doesn't make this any easier on him.
COMBATSYS: Victoria gathers her will.

As quickly as the energy is released, is is quickly pulled back towards the woman. Victoria lets out a small cry as he form glows with the otherwordly energies. Though, J-dragon might notice something a bit off. The woman seems to eye her surroundings, as if she's worried about something. It was a small gesture, but it was enough to be noticable if he was quick enough.
She doesn't allow him the time to think about it, if he is curious. "Well, come on then!" She demands, "I want to see what you can do!" She slides her right foot foward, as more motes of energy pull into her. "Don't tell me you're scared!"
The teenager spins suddenly, leg sweeping low as what looks like some sort of tail goes before his leg, aiming at her feet even as he spins into the air and a second tail like energy is thrown at her if the first hit.
"Dragon Swings Tail!" Comes the call from the teenager as he performs the rather frightening wheel kick with ease it seems.
COMBATSYS: Victoria just-defends Koto's Dragon Swings Tail!

Victoria 0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0 Koto
Victoria doesn't budge an inch as the youth swings his foot out towards Victoria. Breathing in, the woman breathes out another mist of cold air as the attack approaches. Strangely though, the energy that creates the -tails- is quickly dispersed at it draws closer to the woman. It's almost as if the energy is converted and drawn into her aura. Even Victoria didn't realize she could do such a trick, but it's not often that she's able to actually fight someone on her level like this.
"Was that it?" She asks, almost seeming a bit disappointed with the results of J-dragon's tail attack. "I thought you had a bit more going, given you're not like....normal people." That last part is said with a pause, but again, they are in New York. So a guy in a strange costume is pretty standard fair.
Regardless if he replies or not, the woman now takes to the offensive. Gritting her teeth, and narrowing her eyes, the woman leaps at the youth with a look of pure rage. Her face contorts a bit, her once beautiful face now one of endless fury!

"A bit more, huh?" The clawing, berserker like rage has Koto bringing his bracers up to block, weathering the hits before he throws out a rather vicious kick at her midsection. "J-Kick!"
"But, not every day you meet someone who can energies it seems. Just means I'll have to kick you around the old fashioned way!" He declares.

Victoria 1/-------/=======|===----\-------\0 Koto
Even as J-dragon reduces Victoria's manic attacks to essentially just a small temper tantrum, the woman is far too wrapped up in her attack to consider the youth's ability to retaliate. The kick upwards does indeed make contact, sending the woman flying up and back. This gives the boy some room to breathe once again.
Victoria hits the ground with a rather nasty crash, sliding herself into a brick wall of a abandoned store. Her eyes lock onto the youth, almost sizing him up. If there was any doubt that he was beyond normal humans, that that doubt is thoroughly gone now.
The woman takes a moment to center herself, and her eyes become a bit sultry. "Oh....Im so sorry...." She apologizes, running her hands up over her leg. She twists her body to give J-dragon a rather sexy show, "If there is only some way that I could...."
Flairing her wings, she kicks herself back onto her feet. "Make it up to you!" With a mightly flap of her wings, the woman dashes right back into J-dragon. Bringing her fist up, she looks to land a power jab right into his face. Hopefully her small show allowed her an openning to hit him.

Victoria 1/------=/=======|=====--\-------\0 Koto
Koto, while distracted a bit by the rather... alluring show (he is a teenage boy, after all!) he manages to block at least a majority of the hit with a movement that shifts the blow to his shoulder rather than his face with his hand, causing him to twist to the side at the same time.
"Oh great, one of those distracting women." He comments before trying a simple, if fierce throw on Victoria.

Victoria 1/----===/=======|=======\-------\0 Koto
The youth gets a rather firm grip on the woman's arms, leaving her at the mercy of the boy. However, if there is one thing that the woman is, it's observant. "Oh no, please don't!" She pleads, moving her shoulder up so that it gives J-dragon a rather revealing sight of her cleavage. If anything, the tactic allows Victoria enough time to brace herself from the throw. Flapping her wings, she is able to slow descent enough that she lightly bashes to the ground.
Rather than trying to move away now, the woman thinks that she has the boy figured out. "Young men never change...." She admits to herself.
Moving into a kneeling position, the woman swings her arms back. "Still, any advantage you can use!" She admits, before her aura channels into her hands. For a brief moment, there is just a blinding flash of light in her palms. Seconds pass, and the light begins to form into what appears like a handle of some sort of weapon. It glows and orangish-white glow, as if it's literally being forged into her grip. Within moments, J-dragon finds himself on the recieving end of a deadly looking warhammer!

Victoria 1/----===/=======|=======\-------\1 Koto
Koto brings both his arms up in a cross block on the warhammer's shaft, managing to at least not take the thing too much head on. He is driven down to a knee, however, which is fine with him.
Prismatic energy expands under him, forming briefly a winged dragon's head underneath him before he launches himself skywards as he shoves the warhammer aside.
"RAIJIN--" The teen seems to love calling attacks at least, but the fact all that prismatic energy went to his legs, and one leg is now dangerously coming down at Victoria's shoulder is probably /not/ a good sign.
Regardless if it impacts or not, the teenager backflips away, "--RYU!" Of course, the fact that backflipping if it does hit will drive his leg straight into her stomach is probably the second part of the rather devastating looking move itself.

Victoria 1/-======/=======|-------\-------\0 Koto
Victoria can't help but watch, as the boy basically plays her! She's basically unable to do much more than watch as his positioning begins to shift into what looks to be a rather deadly looking uppercut.
NO! She would not let this stand. Her warrior pride was on the line, and she wouldn't allow this boy to make a mockery of her like this!
As quickly as the warhammer was given life, it ignites into white heat once again. However, it doesn't simply disappear. No, it melts down and reinforces her metallic bracers that she wore on her wrists. Bringing them down as J-dragon rises up, he meets an unstoppable force with an inmmovable object! The added protection from the extra metal is enough to keep the boy from completely busting through her defense, but it's not enough to completely protect her. The woman is sent upwards into the air, where she is able to keep herself aloft. Her hands quiver as the extra layer of metal fades back to wear it came from, leaving a pair of very nastily dented bracers. She shakes her hands off, "That was....impressive...." She admits.
Flapping her wings, she lands back onto the ground. She's a fair distance away from J-dragon, as she gets a rather malicious looking smile to her face. "Well if you show me yours...." Her face then becomes like stone, "Then ill show you mine." She begins to call forth yet more energy from the aether to her, cold wind snapping up as a small rift in reality begins to form.
COMBATSYS: Victoria charges her next attack!

Victoria 2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|-------\-------\0 Koto
Eyeing what she is apparently doing, Koto seems to consider, then moves to try an attack it seems. His stance shifts wider as he brings an arm back behind him that begins to glow. "That was nothing!"
Instead of giving her time to charge the attack, J-Dragon lets off an attack of his own as he swings his hand around. A rolling, prismatic wave comes from the swing, briefly taking the form of a dragon before charging at her in a swirling mass. "DRAGON EMPEROR!" The name of the attack may seem a bit grand standing, but the fact is that thing looks rather nasty to be hit by as well!
COMBATSYS: Victoria endures Koto's Dragon Emperor.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////// ]
Victoria 2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|==-----\-------\0 Koto
Victoria screams out as she actually seems to be in pain from using this ability. The rift she creates opens wider and wider, revealing that it's not some simple technique. There is actually a snow swept valley within it, with something running up from the other side. The strange thing begins to take form as it grows closer and closer, it seems to be....a man!
"Come to my aid, honored warrior!" Victoria intones.
Regardless, the attack leaves Victoria basically stuck in this position. She can't move from her spot, or she might risk closing the portal. There is nothing she can do to repel the Dragon Emperor wave, but take it head on! Gritting her teeth, she pushes forward into the prismatic dragon. A scream leaves her as it makes contact, pieces of her clothing become burnt and charred as it races over her. She remains focused on J-dragon however.
"Attack!" She roars, and the warrior leaps from the rift. Axe drawn in hand, the being charges at J-dragon. He seems completely unafraid as he engages with the youth in honorable combat. Hacking and slashing at him, it takes the fight right to Victoria's opponent.

Victoria 0/-------/---<<<<|=======\=------\1 Koto
Finding himself beseiged by some sort of axe empowered thing, J-Dragon is a bit surprised but brings himself to a more solid stance to endure the axe strikes. He can't exactly block axes that well bare handed, and lacking any sort of weapon it seems, he can only try his best to deflect the weapon, or get it away. Finally, however, he has enough and one particularly vicious axe blow has him on one knee briefly before he brings himself up more low to the ground. "Flying Dragon!"
Koto takes off in a mad, low ground hugging dash practically with his hands out stretched to either side as prismatic wings appear behind him. Both wings flap down to his hands as he tries to go around the odd summoned being and go for Victoria herself, one hand aiming to grab her physically and lift her from her spot to move her a good couple of steps before he suddenly tries to throw her away from him rather harshly.

Victoria 0/-------/--<<<<<|=======\=------\1 Koto
Victoria is still struggling to maintain the rift, even as the axe wielding warrior fights with J-dragon. She is visibly straining as each second passes, crying out a bit as she tries to maintain the link with the other side of the rift.
Then as J-dragon slips by the warrior, Victoria finally gives into to the taxing process of holding the rift open, and falls to her knees. No sooner does this happen, the warrior begins to slow. His form becoming frosted over, before completely turning to ice. This ice scuplture then shatters into tiny fractals and is no more.
The winged woman breathes out in laboured breaths, as J-dragon moves in on her. She closes her eyes as she tries to collect herself as he continues to close in. However, just before J-dragon can catch her, she flairs her wings and flaps them forward. It's just enough force to send her back and away from the youth.
Quickly swinging her arms out to her sides she lightly lands on her feet, she nearly trips, but she charges right back at J-dragon. Once again, molten light erupts from both her hands, and a pair of her own Waraxes form. Bringing them up, she attempts to slam them down on the boy!

Victoria 1/-------/=======|=======\=====--\1 Koto
The axe actually knocks Koto to the ground. And he seems like he's about to stay there before he rises upwards slowly. It's obvious a bit of a pain for him to before he shifts his stance. "Fine... you want to fight with aid... then I might as well... finish this..."
Despite his words, he looks to be on his last legs from the axe swings by both her and the summoned warrior.
Yet in spite of that, the prismatic emblem appears again. This time floating in the air behind him as he brings his arms to cross before him, then upwards into an L shaped position. "AURORA... BUUURST!"
The worrying thing about this attack? The fact that it's just a flat out prismatic beam of pure destruction lashing out from his positioned arms. Like seriously, if she wanted to know what the teenage boy was packing? She got her answer.
COMBATSYS: Koto keeps on fighting!

Victoria continues to assault the youth with everything she's got, trying to keep him on his toes. Admittedly, she is starting to lose steam and it's starting to show. He lunges and swings become lazier and lazier with every moment. Though as J-dragon goes to the ground, the woman relents a bit.
"YIELD!" She yells at him.
Her words mean nothing as he rises back up, this causes her to narrow her vision just a bit. It's the only way to shake off the look of amazement. Swinging the weapons back, she gets back into a fighting stance as she prepares for another round of attacks. That is, before the boy unleashes his AURORA BURST attack at her. She gasps as the channeled fury of prismatic light is sent at her. She brings both axes into an axe formation infront of her, and the burst hits her.
The defense is enough to hold up at first, but she starts to skid back as the beam threatens to overcome her. Grimacing, she look to J-dragon. "VALHALLA ARMOUR!" She screams, and the aura that is about her manifests into a ghoslty form of armour about her body. Pushing through the attack, she brings both her wings up and attempts to SMASH them down on the youth!

The overgrown wing smash surprisingly works, a bit too well perhaps! Koto ends up in a small personal crater in the ground from the force of the attack. At least his beam cut off, and no one's really hurt by it.
Then the costume just... fades away into prismatic light. Almost like fireflies. He really is just a teenager from the looks!
And obviously slightly injured from the fight if anything is to go by, such as the rips in his clothes, and that he's bleeding a bit here and there. Axes will do that, after all.
Victoria is lightly glistening from sweating so much, her form having cuts and bruises as well. Moving back, she looks down at the boy. "So....young." She breathes out, as the armour slowly fades back into the aether. "I....I didnt mean to hit him so hard...."
Moving over to where her trench coat had blown, she picks it up. She takes a moment to put it back on visibily showing some pain in doing so, and buttons it up. "Thats some true potential there...." The woman is about to leave the scene, before coming to a stop. She breathes out an agitated sigh, "I can't just leave him...."
Victoria moves over towards the boy and leans down. Grabbing his arm, he hoists him into a small over the shoulder carry. "You best be thankful!" She calls back to him. "I could just leave you out here for the freaks to get you. Or worse..."
COMBATSYS: Koto takes no action.
