The Black Dragon - Black Dragon R1 - Junkyard Wolves

[Toggle Names]

Description: As chaos breaks out across all of Southtown, one of the city's most famous protectors rushes to shield the innocent civilians from a horde of wild beasts. Following the sounds of panic, Terry rushes onto the site of an old construction yard where a half-dozen slavering werewolves have cornered a handful of school children, eager to pick off the weakest from the herd. Can the Lonely Wolf overcome a deadly wolf pack and save the day again?

Southtown gets worse by the day as Darkstalkers prowl the streets, looking for whom they may devour. While elsewhere in the city Yuri Sakazaki fights to defend her school from a single werewolf, here there are bigger problems. Or, at the least, problems that are more numerous.

A school bus carrying evacuated school children has been blockaded by traffic. With threats closing in, the chaperones have opted to move them on the foot the remaining distance to where the NOL have set up a perimeter. It's a short walk, but an increasingly dangerous one.

But never one so dangerous as when a howl echoes through the bustling streets.

"Stay calm, everyone," an twenty-something teacher with short dark hair calls out. He pushes his glasses up on his nose. Everyone huddle close together. This way!" The kids move into a group of abandoned cars, using the vehicles as a poor excuse for barrier. Another teacher, a young blonde woman, positions herself at the back of the line to make sure no one slips away from the group.

It's then that the wolves begin to circle. They are great, snarling things, misshapen in unnatural ways, with the silhouette of wolves but which walk like men. The prowl low, strafing closer to the huddle of kids and the two teachers.

Southtown has been the stomping ground of Terry Bogard for the longest time. So it stands to reason that he would be here in the midst of the infestation of Darkstalkers that have made themselves known all throughout the city. Terry's been taking down various creatures recently, which is probably why he looks even more ragged than usual. Tears in his clothes, blood stains and even a handful of bruises. Still, here he is, Terry Bogard stomping right onto Gedo Street.

It doesn't take long for him to notice that the school children are being hunted and his duffle bag drops to the ground. Knuckles are cracked. Neck is cracked. Fingers are flexed in his father's gloves and Terry reaches up to pull his trucker cap further down on his skull. The blood smudged 'Fatal Fury' logo more prominently displayed.

There's a sudden burst of speed from Terry as he races towards the gathering. He launches himself up into the air and somersaults with heroic style to crash land right in the circle of the Pack, planting himself between them and the school children. He even makes sure to land in his Superhero Landing. Fist into the ground and everything.

"You guys are really starting to get on my nerves." Terry Bogard says as he raises his head to glare in the direction of those wolves.

One of the wolves--their number still unknown--makes its way toward the group. A little boy with a bowl cut has fallen away from the group, trying to make his way out through a gap between the cars. The wolf descends upon him suddenly, teeth snapping. It winds through an opening, a long-nailed claw reaching for the boy--

And then Terry arrives, landing too close for comfort. The wolf draws back with a glimmer of its eye, a piece of metal catching the light and flashing as it jingles with the movement. A...collar?

As the wolf withdraws, two more move to flank, one on all fours and the other upright. All three seem to have that same sort of jewelry--mostly. One has a chain dangling from the ring around its neck. Another's is darker, stained with blood.

The wolves snarl, teeth snapping.

That is the only word that Terry Bogard has for the school children and their chaperones. He doesn't even look in their direction because he's too busy being focused on the wolves that are looking as hungry and violent as they should. He's very much glad he's taken their attention and is looking forward to knocking some sense out of them. And protecting the children.

Terry actually stays in his crouched position but his eyes take a moment to lock in the wolves and their approach. Taking mental notes of what may be collars or useful in the long run... like that chain. He's not even sure if they understand enough english to be tainted by his words.

Terry launches out of that crouch and towards the wolf with the chain, reaching out to snatch the chain and yank the wolf close enough so that he can hurl it off towards another one of those wolves. He's definitely going to have to play this smart considering the numbers game that's going on here!

COMBATSYS: Terry successfully hits The Pack with Quick Throw.

The Pack falls asleep.

The Pack wakes up.

As street lights flicker up to full strength, The Pack can be seen in their full, terrible glory. One has dark gray fur and seems to be wearing ragged camo pants. Another is in a tank tops and sweats with slightly smokier, lighter fur. The last barely has on anything, with bare scraps of ragged shorts clinging to its frame.

When Terry signals for the group to run, the middle wolf--with the camo--jerks its muzzle to the side suddenly as it communicating some unknown message. The back wolf, in the blue shorts and the chain, shoots in low and tries to close the gap. He pays for the trouble by falling into Terry's grip, from which he's bodily thrown through the air. The other two draw back and let him flounder back onto his feet--but only briefly.

The tanktop wearing wolf vaults over the first, landing and then springing into a leap toward Terry with its tear barred and shimmering in the light of the street lamps.

If there's one thing Terry Bogard knows how to do its stand his ground. Which is why those Converse just plant into the street as much as possible as Terry raises an arm up at the lunging werewolf that's headed in his direction. Blood splatters off his arm as the wolf's teeth scrape against him but an extension of the arm keeps the wolf from tearing him to shreds.

"Bad dog." Terry quips before leaning back and coming at the wolf that's so close to him now with a vicious jab that might be considered animal abuse in some circles. Or, y'know, if these wolves weren't trying to kill or eat defenseless school children and such.

"No biscuit." He had to finish the quip!

COMBATSYS: The Pack interrupts Strong Punch from Terry with Feral Roar.

Her teeth digging into his arm, tanktop wolf snarls, leveraging muscle against muscle as she tries to overcome the Bogard's defense and tear into his throat. As she does, Chain wolf climbs to its feet, curling defensively as it draws away. Lastly, Camo wolf circles, keeping his distance as he moves around Terry and toward the children and teachers.

Suddenly breaking away, Tanktop wolf draws back as Terry drives his fist forward. She roars, chi erupting from her muscle as sonic force and power merge in a blast aimed at the fighter's chest. The punch strikes her her hard enough to floor her, but not before the damage is done.

Chain wolf draws onto his hindlegs, stepping to the side and strafing once more as his comrade is downed temporarily.

Terry Bogard's shirt is ripped into shredded tatters thanks to Roars of Doom and somehow Terry manages to stay on his feet. By some miracle his hat doesn't even get blown off either. Wincing through the pain, though, Terry manages to catch sight of the various wolves and their locations around him. He's fought multiple opponents before but this is different. This time he's fighting to keep them away from innocents.

"Hey!" Terry whistles as he tries to stop the ringing in both his ears and his chest from feral roars to top. "Eyes on me!"

Terry Bogard surges with his own chi, the orange hue crackling around his fist as he slams it into the ground. The resulting wave of chi surges through and across the ground in the direction of the Camo Wolf to make sure they can't reach those fleeing innocents!

COMBATSYS: Terry successfully hits The Pack with Power Wave.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Terry            0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1         The Pack

The Power Wave smashes into one of the wolves like a cannonball, It smashes him into the nearby car with a metallic crumble. Growling, Chain Wolf draws back and raises his claws aggressively.

As all this goes on, the male teacher from before threads his hand into the handle of one the cars and pulls it open, using it as a shield to stall the wolves further as he scoops up another child and rushes to join the group. "Keep moving everyone! That man is here to help us!"

Tanktop Wolf climbs to her feet with a stagger. Eyes narrow and breath steams as she growls at Terry. She shifts posture, lowering her center of gravity with a three point stance before she surges forward, first with a claw, then two more, then a sweeping kick from her clawed feet.

The Pack falls asleep.

The Pack wakes up.

Terry Bogard narrows his eyes the pack of opponents through which he must punch through in order to secure the safety of those that have been fleeing for their lives. His humble heroics on display for all those that dare to gaze in his direction. Which is why he's prepared for the worst when Tanktop Wolf heads in his direction.

That might also be why he's smiling.

As Tanktop Wolf surges at him with that clawing motion, Terry sidesteps out of that claw's path. As the second and third claws slash at him, he does dips low to duck underneath them, his signature cap catching a scratch or two as he does. Though, as Tanktop Wolf drops low for her sweep kick, he rises from his defensive crouch with a clenched fist imbued with the spirit of Jeff Bogard, aimed straight for the chin of Tanktop Wolf!

The Pack wakes up.

A heavy crack rings out as Terry's fist impacts with Tanktop Wolf's chin. The werewolf does not stagger so much as soar when the impact launches right off her feet to land in a heap on the blood-speckled pavement.

But even as she does, Chain Wolf has moved to flank. He vaults off of a parked car, his clawed foot tearing loose the rear view mirror as he kicks into the air. Leaving the car rapidly, the wolf curls, drawing up his shoulders in a cannonball-like tackle to try and take Terry to the ground.

Camo Wolf meanwhile sprints through, aiming to surge past Terry toward the group. One of the chaperones' eyes widen as he turns, putting himself bodily between the incoming Darkstalker and the fleeing group of children.

COMBATSYS: The Pack successfully hits Terry with Strong Tackle.

Terry doesn't have time to gloat over the uppercut justice that Tanktop Wolf just received. He's too busy catching Chain Wolf out of his peripheral. Terry spins on his heels, trying to get out of the way of Chain Wolf's cannonballing form... but he times it wrong and catches it all up in his chest.

Terry's knocked backwards and slides across the ground. He takes a moment to cough up blood before rolling to his feet. He catches sight of Camo Wolf and takes off in that direction, rushing past Chain Wolf and surging in close to Camo Wolf! He steps right into a spin move to put himself between the Chaperone and Camo Wolf, fist charged with blue chi as he sends a Burn Knuckle towards the Camo Wolf's face.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Terry            1/-----==/=======|=======\=====--\1         The Pack

Rolling out of the tackle, Chain Wolf is back on his feet and turning to go after Terry while he's down. Before he can close the gap, however, the elder Bogard is back up and pressing to close the gap between Camo Wolf and the bystanders. A claw glimmers in the moonlight as Camo Wolf raises it, ready to bisect the brave teacher. His claw splits the fabric as he swings, ready to slash into the man's chest when Terry smashes into him with the Power Drive and launches the wolf into the side of a nearby compact, which crumples around him.

Gasping for air, the teacher drips blood onto the asphalt--but his guts have stayed fortunately inside his body thanks to Terry's intervention. The teacher staggers and leans on a guard rail for balance, taking deep gasping breaths as he stares at the ground.

Chain wolf goes into a frenzy, meanwhile, grabbing that collar and tugging. Hissing with pneumatics, something in the collar deploys, forcing a steady froth from the Darkstalker's mouth. Muscles bulge and tighten. Fur tears and skin stretches as he tries, desperately and ferally to pull away the collar. He erupts into a violent howl, and then barrels down on Terry once more. Claws and fangs lengthen as the collar glows ominously, something pumping through it.

He slashes forward with a claw, chasing it immediately after with the other. The wolf turns on the second claw, balancing on a front leg to twist in a sweeping kick. From there, it launches forward to try and bit into Terry's shoulder with those nasty jaws.

COMBATSYS: The Pack successfully hits Terry with Scent of Blood.

T. Bogard realizes that the teacher is hurt and while some of his focus shifts in that direction, there's also the opportunity to try and capitalize. However, Terry takes a moment too long to strategize as the arrival of Chain Wolf makes very, very clear. There's a moment where Terry attempts to figure out what in the hell is going on with that collar but that's probably beyond his mental capacity. Especially, at the moment. He has contacts for that.

The thought of snatching that collar does cross his mind, though, which explains the next moments...

As Chain Wolf makes his slashing claw moment, Terry practically extends his chest to take the claw right across it. Blood splatters but Terry pushes forward to take the second one just as cleanly. Teeth grit as Terry leans into the spinning kick, which knocks damn near a pint of blood out of Terry's mouth as it sends his head whipping to the side... helping to expose the shoulder. Terry doesn't move, either out of pain or shock or sheer determination. The bite into his shoulder is what triggers Terry Bogard's next move.

Fighting through the pain, Terry reaches one arm up to wrap around the Chain Wolf's body, pulling to hold him tightly and in place. His other hand flicks open a pocket knife. That knife gets brought up... not to stab Chain Wolf but to try and pop the lock on that collar and remove it.

This pain better be worth it.

Terry            2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0         The Pack

The werewolf and Terry Bogard grapple in a mess of teeth, claw, and blood. Muscles stresses against muscle as supernatural might meets street-hardened training. The two fight as the teacher shakes his head. Gaining his senses, he draws back, one hand on his chest as he moves away from the werewolf slumped against the side of the compact.

The knife jams into the wolf's throat, missing the collar but wedging itself near it. Black blood pouring from the wound, the wolf snaps and growls, swiping a claw at Terry to try and break him away from that knife works its way any deeper.

COMBATSYS: Terry blocks The Pack's Light Claw.

[               \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////                   ]
Terry            2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0         The Pack

Terry spots the claw headed in his direction and lets go of the knife in order to catch that claw that's headed in his direction. There's enough room for him to step back, giving himself some room as he skids to a halt in a crouched position, the bill of his trucker hat skewed to the side slightly.

Terry reaches up to straighten it.

Terry Bogard grins as he charges up the blue chi around his fist, surging forward and towards Chain Wolf to lay into him with such an impressive feat as the Burn Knuckle! A moment later, Bogard unleashes a tidal wave of accompanying chi exploding from behind his Burn Knuckling form in an engulfing explosion of Legendary, Hungry Wolf energy! All sent in the direction of Chain Wolf... and any of the other wolves that may still be lingering around.

Oh and there's one question he has to ask in the middle of all this.


COMBATSYS: The Pack blocks Terry's #Buster Wolf EX#.

With a heavy thwack, the fist impacts with Chain Wolf's jaw, the Buster Wolf making for a busted wolf as it staggers the beast backward. It shakes its head dizzily, trying to get its bearings. When Terry goes for the follow-up, it musters enough of its senses to draw back, crossing its claws in front of it to intercept the eruption of chi and get launched backward into a slide instead of being blown away outright.

When the wolf stops moving backward, he shakes his muzzles, throwing spit and blood everywhere. His breath is heavy, labored. The other two wolves have stopped moving, old cold at the very least. Chain wolf crouches down, the glow of that sinister collar fading a bit as he rallies enough strength to charge in again.

One claw is drawn back behind as he closes the gap, then he drives it down in a great, vicious sweep that tries to rend Terry from chest to groin.

COMBATSYS: Terry Toughs Out The Pack's Strong Claw!

What's left of Terry Bogard's shirt is clawed from his body at the violent attention that comes from Chain Wolf's viciousness. However, the glint in Terry's eyes and the flexing of the muscles all throughout his bleeding torso just prove how TOUGH he is at this point. He takes the clawing right on down his body and doesn't miss a beat. Or a step. He doesn't even wince this time, regardless of the deep scratch that's sure to leave a scar later.

Terry doesn't hesitate before he lifts his body into the air, flipping forward and extending one of his legs! The heel of that Red Converse Sneaker is aimed to crack the skull of this annoyingly persistent wolf that seems to want to make a meal out of him!

Chain Wolf sees Terry rise. Instinct tells it to move, reflex tells it to guard, or defend, to flee if necessary. Whatever that beeping device on its collar is tells it to fight. To risk everything to take out the threat. The wolf draws back a claw and sweeps up, aiming to rend Terry as he drives his boot downward.

The boot impacts the werewolf's muzzle with a flash of chi, as it impacts with a heavy crack that drops the beast to the ground in a heap. It does not rise up again. With the third wolf defeated, Terry has bought enough time for the children and their chaperones to withdraw.

The teacher who was injured from before staggers up, his companion's cost wrapped around his waist as a makeshift bandage.

"We can't thank you enough," he wheezes. The sound of air brakes indicates the arrival of another vehicle, a group of Southtown PD and a couple of NOL officers pouring off to start herding everyone aboard.

Terry doesn't really respond to the teacher because he's keeping a close eye on the wolves to make sure that they are actually down. As the arrival of authorities and helpers happen, Terry does the greatest thing that he can really do in this moment and that's give everyone gathered a full on Thumbs Up.

That Thumbs Up carries meaning towards the teacher in that Terry appreciates what the teacher did to protect the children. It should also send some meaning towards the authority figures that have arrived to help and get people to safety. It's all about doing just that.

Without a word, because that's what Heroes do, Terry wanders away from the collective do-gooders to see if he can't get his knife back out of Chain Wolf's body.

There's still a whole lot of Southtown left to defend...

COMBATSYS: Terry gives a thumbs up.
