World Warrior 2007 - [R1] Urien vs Ingrid

Description: Can't a girl just enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the rain? The World Warrior tournament -- specifically, Ingrid's challenger Urien -- sayeth no! (Winner: Urien)

It's a drizzly day in Southtown, rain coming down from an overcast that occludes the sun, making what might otherwise be a normal day somewhat dull. People have gone inside, fleeing to the safety of buildings in order to get out of the rain and stay dry. People who had planned to go on walks and runs have canceled them, and the park is perhaps a bit emptier than normal. For one such as Ingrid who actively seeks out crowds, days such as this one might be saddening.
But Ingrid isn't the type to allow herself to become downcast so easily. Instead of getting a bit mopey she's making the best of the situation. It's not like she requires large crowds, after all, and it's been a fairly long time since she's come in to one of her favorite coffee shops. It's an elitist sort of place, admitting only those of the upper classes, to the point that she, with her tailored clothing, was almost not admitted before she stuck her nose up at the doorman.
Now she sits in careful relaxation, enjoying the quiet atmosphere in a humored sort of way as people sip their coffee in a pretentious manner, most of them wondering how much better they are than the rest. She lifts her cup with both of her gloved hands and takes a sip before setting it down without making a noise, playing a small game with herself by judging the reactions of those watching her. Quiet, peaceful, tranquil.

Urien normally is content to let people drink their coffee in piece, but the way the battle between Ingrid and Urien came to be, Urien figured it was fine to engage her on his own terms. He brought the camera crew and everything, and probably bribed them to "just go with it".
Moments of peace pass by as Ingrid is given time to find a table and set down her coffee. At just that moment--as Ingrid is judging those around her, reactions varying from warmness to scowls from those who think she might not be snooty enough to be in their coffee shop or whatever else--stone, wood, and any other material that happens to be preventing Urien access bursts out in a shower of debris, the man of iron--not be confused with iron man or the man of steel--makes his violent arrival on the scene. Ka-blam, sucka!
Ingrid is given a split second to react to this loud crash, shower of various building materials coming in her direction--but more importantly she has to worry about the man behind it all, who's charging straight for her--vaulting over the table and plowing straight in to her, knees first. "DESTROY!"
Oddly, her coffee is not spilt during any of this.

Urien            0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0           Ingrid

And how does Ingrid react to such a violent display of masculinity and power? Her eyes are closed, and she remains seated, hand slowly reaching out for the coffee as her other hand lifts to point. A little golden disk begins to form... and she's plowed straight into with his knees before it can form enough to help, her other jerked away from the coffee as she goes slamming into a nearby wall after being hit.
A moment before he burst through the wall she knew he was coming, the violent intent to harm her clear as day among the emotions of others. But unfortunately that empathy doesn't make up for Urien's speed and quickness, and now she's picking herself up weakly after being struck nearly unprepared. Perhaps she should have tried to get out of the way, instead, but she had thought he might not have been ready for a counter attack. People springing ambushes rarely are, but in this case, well...

Ouch, that's not fun. Urien turns out to be incredibly heavy--and with the momentum he had long before he plowed in to Ingrid, his body carried quite heavy force--and her being smashed in to the opposite wall only slowed him partially, most of the kinetic energy transferring to her, but some retained. Incidentally, camera men are in the process of jumping through the hole that Urien created when he plowed through, eager to record the action of a large, iron bodied individual abusing a hapless young girl at a coffee shop.
How evil.
With Ingrid against the wall, Urien lands in a run, running after Ingrid so as to give her no time to recover and mount any sort of retaliation against him. As Ingrid is smashed in to a wall, Urien continues straight on, dashing forward a few strides before suddenly giving one more powerful push with his legs as he aims to plow straight in to Ingrid, already slammed in to the wall--and if she can't avoid this one, she'll be in a lot more trouble, likely imbedded in the wall or possibly pushed through it."Crush!" He shouts as he smashes in to Ingrid's chest with a massive shoulder.

COMBATSYS: Ingrid dodges Urien's Chariot Tackle.

Urien            0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0           Ingrid

Luckily, even if she's hapless she's not /helpless/. Now that Ingrid's recovered somewhat from the initial pounding she took, despite Urien's attempts to give her no time for it, she's able to react better to his attack, this time choosing the course of action that might have prevented so much pain earlier and jumping to the side.
She may not be physically strong like Urien, but she is quick on her feet. Once she gets away from him she gives him a small smile. "It was kind of you to drop in, but I think it might have been better if you had come in through the door. I hope it doesn't take them too long to repair the walls you're breaking; this is one of my favorite coffee shops." There's a small smile on her face, one that almost hints at teasing. She's felt his power, and it's time to try to reverse the situation. She steps forward and raises her arms, bringing them down quickly and pushing them forward, releasing a large amount of energy and letting it pour out in a sparkling, golden trail in an attempt to envelop him with it.

COMBATSYS: Urien blocks Ingrid's Sunbeam.

Urien            0/-------/--=====|=====--\-------\0           Ingrid

Urien charges headlong in to the wall, crashing in to it but not going fast enough to plow straight through this time. Instead his upper body is struck partway in to it--a moment later his arms flex out to the sides, more sharapnel as he tears himself free. Turning around to Face Ingrid, he doesn't even move much, instead holding still like a solid iron statue, her attack having little effect nonetheless.
"You have no idea what you're about to experience." Urien suddenly blurts out, staring hard and long at his opponent. Uncaring for her upbeat attitude, and despite being backed up against a wall, he just stands very still as he looks at Ingrid. "Understand you're just a stepping stone on my golden path to godhood."

COMBATSYS: Urien focuses on his next action.

Urien            0/-------/--=====|=====--\-------\0           Ingrid

Ingrid looks amused at this statement, even if she's let down that he's able to somehow dampen the effect of her energy on him. She reaches up and brushes her hair over her shoulder, into a more neat and orderly manner. "I've experienced pain on a level one such as yourself might only barely be able to comprehend." This isn't said as a taunt though, there's possibly even a sweet tone to it. She shakes her head and stands her ground, not moving to attack, but instead look for openings. "Well then, I hope to at least be an important one, if that's what I am to be. Though... there really are too many people walking that same path."

COMBATSYS: Ingrid focuses on her next action.

"You amuse me." Urien retorts, lifting a hand out straight towards Ingrid's face, palms spread out. Still... that attack was obscure. Not chi. Urien likely has minimal understanding of Psi, and thus it's no down intriguing... if not particularly painful. Nevertheless, "Perhaps when my rule begins, I shall keep you as a pet." This comment is accented by a sudden flash of lightning--and afterwards, a loosely held together ball of metal, surrounded and held to its shape by electricity, is sent sailing for Ingrid. Shazam!

COMBATSYS: Urien successfully hits Ingrid with Metallic Sphere.

Urien            0/-------/=======|=======\====---\1           Ingrid

Simply put, the metal and energy tears into Ingrid, who is far too close to get out of the way effectively as she had hoped. It has an effect on her that is very, very likely far more powerful that Urien might have thought, her eyes widening as she lets out a pained scream, not flying backwards but simply collapsing. It's terribly painful, and even if she's had worse it doesn't make this any better. She picks herself up shakily, fighting past the pain. "I'm afraid... someone else already has that in mind for me." A bright flash surrounds her, in the form of the same symbols on her hairpieces, and she leans forward and points, a little triangle of energy forming in front of her and then a very large swirling disk of energy forming behind that, threatening to completely envelop Urien. If it takes hold it'll drag him up to the ceiling and hold him there for a while tearing at him, and then drop him back down, just in time for Ingrid to release another large burst of energy in the form of that symbol, intent on searing the heck out of him. Of course, that's only if it works.

COMBATSYS: Urien reflects Sun Delta from Ingrid with Aegis Reflector.

Urien            0/-------/----===|=======\=------\1           Ingrid

Put simply: It doesn't. As Ingrid tries to get ahold of Urien with her psi power, arms fly out to either side. "Aegis Reflector!" He shouts, smashing the younger fighter's energy as it flies out, coming to rest and fully materializing behind her. In an instant, Urien is on her, hand gripping her throat and pinning her to the pink wall of energy.
Although the choking is not fun, the electricity flowing through her from the reflector is what's really doing the damage. "Then perhaps they are the one truly worthy of being my pet." He growls out as he goes about keeping Ingrid in this unpleasant situation, stuck between his iron claw and the wall of chi behind her, doing everything he can to keep her pinned until unconsciousness, but before she does, he asks, "Tell me, who is this person? I think I will destroy him for fun."

Ingrid's eyes widen somewhat as the energy is turned around and made useless, unable to do anything as she's lifted up and pressed into the pink wall of electricity. Not screaming this time by sheer force of will as she's mashed with the powerful energy, tears forming in her eyes from the pain alone. As she's held against that wall her consciousness begins to flicker, the hands around her throat choking her combining with the pain. She has a few options here... She could try one more time to release her energy against him. ...but then... "His... his name is Vega." A brief pause, "And if you would destroy him permanently, I would bow down to you as a god." Wait, what?

COMBATSYS: Ingrid takes no action.

Urien            0/-------/----===|

COMBATSYS: Ingrid can no longer fight.

Urien            0/-------/----===|

As she doesn't struggle, the onslaught eventually lets up, the pink barrier shattering and disappearing. Urien sets her down on the ground--oddly gently, despite her body probably being comparable to a ragdoll at this point--rising up and staring down at her. "Your wounds will heal, but remember this experience and know I am destined to be the next god of this earth." Urien says to her, even if she's unconscious. He likes hearing himself talk anyway. "Vega will not stand in my way." Urien speaks as though the name is somewhat familiar to him--at least to some extent. It's likely Urien is at least aware of his major opponents in his attempts to rule the world, and Vega is certainly one of them.

COMBATSYS: Urien has ended the fight here.
