Nastasya Crowe ✝
So it was another day, or well morning. Nastasya was up early, she had seen Nathaniel yesterday, they found the informer, broke him, killed him and it was now time to find more. However first things first, training a little bit. To get stronger, quicker and maybe more of a team work into finding the other informants. To make sure they sort of knew what the other wanted to do. Although she doubt she could ever read someone's mind again the way she did with her best friend Crowley.

But that wasn't the point, that was behind in the past. She rolled her eyes at the reflection in the mirror. She was in a hotel room and she planned to go to the only training grounds in Crocus, it was around nine o'clock in the morning while she headed out of her room to get some breakfast, what would be nice today? Grilled cheese? A sandwich? Something normal? She would take some french toast and leave the hotel. Dressed in a comfortable set of black jeans and a crop top in a dark red colour, covered by her demin jacket, she looked fine. She was dressed for fighting, not dressed for investigation, but she had bought different clothing, in case it was necessary.

The training grounds were at the North of the city, it was a combination of places, like indoors, simulators and just patches of grass outside. It was rather cold, she wondered if it had been freezing during the night. Again, she didn't care. Born in the North where there was only ice and snow, this felt like a summer breeze to her. She slung her back over her right shoulder and walked out of the hotel, on her flats, eating french toast. This was going to be interesting. She waited at the entrance of the training grounds, not sure what Nathaniel would prefer to use, she really didn't care in general.

"Hurry it up my arm's getting tired." Nate plucked the cigarette from between his lips and exhaled a small cloud of smoke off to the side. The Knight in his grip continued to squirm. Nate was holding him by the ankle, suspending him off the roof of the building. The woman's name was Geaar, surname at least, first name wasn't sure. He'd been waiting for her to get off of shift so they could have their little chat, and she'd be too low on mana to use magic against him. The darkness still hadn't quite accepted him. He'd have to fix that soon. She was one of the Knights Venko had told him about, a mental wreck on most counts, slightly loose cannon, a few dismissals under her belt ant the like. Enough to tarnish her, and make this little scheme possible.
"Are they looking into Venko's death?"
"NO" she screamed, trying not to look down and waving her arms in search of a ledge. "The higher ups knew he had enemies, they're putting it down to that, and sweeping most of it under the rug. I don't know for sure though, it's above my rank" Good news, at least in part. Moving this soon could attract more attention, unless he went for one of the more criminally tagged informants next.
"Have you heard the name Nathaniel Abaddon before?"
"Captain Nathaniel Abaddon. Have you heard about him? What happened to him?"
"No. I swear I've never heard of him." Nate grit his teeth
"Bloody typical"
"Is that it, are you going to let me go?"
"Course" he released his grip, and sent the woman on a one way express ride, screaming all the way. He stepped away from the edge. "I give them over twenty years and they sweep me under the god damned rug. Would've preferred it they just pretended I died, at least then I would have some bearing. Gods. Bastards!"

In the time after his little escapade with Nastasya Nate had been doing his homework. It seemed as though he'd been breaking the right fingers. They were on the right track, the MC knew very little and now there was one less in their number. No-one would miss Geaar, nor would they think her death was out of the ordinary. Tarnished honour and a string of bad psyche evaluations meant they'd write this off as suicide. Provided of course they didn't start stringing these things together. By the time they did though, he'd have a little more weight, magical and influential that he could use against them. Now to Rendevouz with his ally. Today was already looking up.

The crowd that had formed around Geaar was perfect cover.

Nastasya dropped her bag with clothing next to her on the ground, she should be more careful with her stuff but she couldnt'care less. The only thing she cared about was staying sane and alive. She softly tapped with her hands on her bare stomach and looked at everyone that was looking at her. She wasn't wearing her eyepatch today and that felt more naked than showing a bare stomach in the autumn season.

It was quite windy outside but as said before: she didn't care. She was waiting and wondered what today would bring, what sorts of food and especially what kind of parfait, she wouldn't skip that one again today, just like she had done yesterday. She could see Nathaniel coming from quite far, being as tall as he was and just dressed in dark clothing, it was easy really. "You're late." She said and actually found it quite funny because yesterday she was late. That had been more thrilling though and a great entrance if she say so herself. "Whatever, your pick, outside, inside, simulator?" She had no idea how the last option worked, she heard it was some virtual reality idea, although you were really there, the walls and the looks of the room just changed.

She would either wait for an answer or a shrug and if he didn't give an answer, she would go inside the gate and walk to one of the farest spots outside. She didn't like people looking at her training. It was as giving a secret away, but most of them were inside with this weather.

Nate had opted for black hair this time around, a layer of shadow over the white.
"Outside, means I can smoke. I assume you don't mind." The place was one Nate had visited before, though not as often as he would have liked. he shed his coat and folded it neatly before rolling up his shirt sleeves. He'd used simulators before, and though they were good in their own way, he much preferred a real combatant, and the feeling of a cold breeze as he fought.

He rolled his shoulders and took up a boxer's stance, fists lifted, feet loosely planted.
"Why don't you open up. Let's see what you're like without a knife in hand." he winked (though it was more of a blink all things considered).

She had walked to the open space, especially because he picked it. She was glad with that. She rather had outside too. "Do you smoke a lot?" She said because she was actually always wondering what was tempting about smoking? It looked really cool but she didn't just want it to be cool. Maybe it was something she would learn to do, to hold her sanity. It looked something that you had to think about, but you would learn to shut out.

She stood opposite him, with her back towards the hedge, she had picked the complete end of the training ground, happy to see no one was in their neighborhood. She had her arms crossed over her chest and watched him. She thought about dropping her jeans jacket but well she could always do that later. She wouldn't mind if it was destroyed or whatever, she wasn't much of a fan of it either. It was just comfortable to wear.

So he decided to fight as a fist fight, hand combat. She was more someone to throw knives and he seemed to know that. She shrugged and rolled her shoulders while she took a few steps closer to him, so they were in a one meter distance. She followed his stance, because she was a left handed girl, she had her right hand in front and her left foot food, she had her own technique, but she wasn't so sure how it worked with this guy. Besides he was way taller, maybe that made him a little bit easier to hit. But she doubted it.

"Something I picked up a long time ago, helps me focus when I need to. Don't do it during combat though." he began to circle "unless I need a spare weapon of course. Useful distraction." He had a significant height and weight advantage here, but then again likelihood was she was more flexible than he was, and could move that little bit faster. Old injuries tended to take their toll.

With a sudden burst of movement, Nate threw a two jab combo; left, right before darting right and drawing his right leg back into a solid plant, preparing to launch it forwards to devastating effect once she moved, or if she didn't. "Don't worry about pulling your punches, I can take a few hits."

She was listening and eyeing him suspiciously, especially when he started to move. She just remained standing. She was waiting for him to attack first. She missed the two punches slightly, she swayed to one way and because she understood the principle of the two way punch, she just ducked and took a step in that same direction where the first hit was coming from, because that would work, her idea was to take that step and swing her left leg his way to hit him right above the hip. "I know, you don't look very fragile." She said with a grin. She had to get better at this and even though she missed this, she was sure to get a few more hits, rather not in the face. She missed the ghost that would support her, she missed her silly child dream of becoming impressive. She took two steps back after her swing and made sure to try and punch him on the right side, because she was left, it was the best idea she got. She had to keep in mind that she would have to make sure he wouldn't notice her dominant side. It would just make things easier.

Her foot slammed into his hip and he grit his teeth as he accepted the blow.
"Only on the inside, polecat." he smirked, moving a hand in order to trap her foot whilst launching a kick of his own, sending a size 11 steel toecap towards her chest. He wasn't going to hold back either.

In spite of their somewhat contrasting personalities and skewed moralities, Nate had begun to consider Nastasya a friend, or ally at the very least. Someone he wouldn't mind having at his back when the Guild inevitably went to war. Pitched battles and the like were the way of the past, now it was all cloak and dagger, information and stabbing. New rules for a new era. Wasn't what Nate was as used to, but he'd already proved that he could adapt. He'd always been one for being 'in the know'.

Her foot was trapped and the only thing she could do was take the kick in her chest. She had blocked it with her frontarms but that didn't mean it didn't hurt or that it wasn't scrapping a layer of her skin, she could feel some little blood drops but not too much or too bad. "Cute," she grunted because of the impact. But because of the push and the fact that she let her body take the blow, she could get her foot free because of the steps she had to take backwards. Instead of taking the blow full head on, she made her body weak and fell backward, and made a roll backwards. She had to make sure that she was making a distraction and that's when she used her Shadow Spot. Her shadow moved while she quickly came to her feet and tried a left, right punch while her shadow went around him.

Mana: 875/900
Shadow Shot:

Nate shook out after he'd sent Nastasya tumbling backwards
"Then you're going to find this adorable." He closed in and lined up a reverse kick, lifting his leg and bringing the heel down hard towards her chest, trusting that she'd move before the impact. Fighting was always much easier with magic, or at the very least a physical weapon. Nate's hammer and sword were both gone, and with them a part of his body. His magic had also gone, of his own accord. He needed a fresh identity, couldn't risk being found out or recognised because of his old magic. Though that wasn't important, what was; was the matter at hand.

At least she was fast enough to stand up again but she could see what he was doing, her one eye turned a little bit bigger in surprise but she shook it off quick enough and jumped to the left, to make another role that let her end on her feet. She was now sort of in front of Nathaniel. With his back towards her, because of the fact that he had moved forward and she had moved diagonal. She saw her moment to kick his behind. "Oh yeah you were adorable. Let me be sweet to you too." She said with a grin as she made the motion with her right foot. She doubt that she would hit him, but everything was going rather fast.

Boot against spine, it was a good move. Not a good mix. Something popped and Nate stiffened. Old injuries. He needed to get them fixed properly. Not enough to drop him though.
"Well. you certainly know how to give a guy funny feelings I'll give you that." He turned, fists curled. Kicks seemed to be the way the fight was going for both of them, so it was time to change things up.

Right hook, left uppercut, twinned jabs from the right fist. Four strikes fired off with as much speed as he could manage. He'd always been the heavy artillery, coming in with big spells and a bigger weapon. Overwhelm the foe then crush underfoot.

Nastasya could see something didn't go 100%, maybe she should keep in mind that he took a lot of toll from his body, especially if he had also been a Knight before. Which rank would he have been? Even if he told her, she wouldn't know if it was big unless it was Squire. She had never been close to the Council. "Still cute." She bit her lower lip on the right corner.

She knew how to block the right hook, with her elbow protecting her face. However he went too soon with the uppercut and because her tooth was still on her lip, she bit too hard and cut it. Which made it bleed rather rapidly, but there was no time to adjust to that as she had to block the other two income with again her lower forearms. It was her turn and she just had to go in and do the same but while making the quick two twinning jabs, she tried to shove one of his feet away from under him. If only he would fall, she would say: "So you do fall for me? If he didn't she would mutter something about him being too strong. But hopefully not too loud, her ego didn't like it.

The sweep worked and he landed on the ground. Smirking at the quip she followed the action.
"Ask me again after a few more drinks." he rolled out of the way of the follow up attack and got to his feet, lifting his guard. Trap and snap this time, wait for her to come to him and then react accordingly. She was aggressive, not quite as much as he was but it seemed she preferred to be the one to wait and get the upper hand. If she felt she had it, maybe she'd let herself get pulled into a trap. Worth a shot.

Her lip was still bleeding and the blood was dripping on her chin, which was really annoying and so she wiped it off with her hand, and back on her jeans jacket because: who cared. "Can't we do the drinks now?" She said with a whiny voice, even though she wasn't complaining if they would continue.

It seemed that he was waiting now, she circled around him, copying his first move before they started. She wasn't sure where or how to attack. "So any tips how I make you fall for me again?" Because she was always alone, she trained alone for as long as she could remember. She had no idea, it was just attack and being attacked. It already cost her more thoughts than ever before. Most of the time because she was quick with the knives, she didn't need to think about it. But this was a fist fight.

"Don't want to make it too easy for you." Nate replied, smirking and drawing up to his full height and puffing out his chest, preparing to charge. Had to make better sue of that weight advantage. If he went with enough force when she got close he could really put her on the back foot. If only to give her something to think about in the long term. Armoured opponents were always bigger than you and always weighed a ton. They'd be going up against armoured opponents, so she needed to know how to tackle them. Or at the very least slow them down enough to survive, or until someone bigger arrived to crack the braggard open.

He had a good point, but she could see like a flash forward of her dropping on the ground, not able to get away with a roll backwards or whatever and just cough up blood. But today was probably not that day. She was sure that kicking him was not a good idea, her foot would be trapped again, so she would jump in, real quick as quick as she could and go for a twinning jab and a right uppercut. She just wanted jump away to make sure she wasn't too close to him and get hurt herself. It didn't really work, he was stronger or well put more weight in the game and her eye became fierce. She needed to find a way to drop him to the ground again, shoving away someone's foot only worked once. Pushing him wouldn't be an option, only if he was a child. She had to think fast.

She lurched forwards and Nate managed to get his guard up just in time. The two strikes landed and he whipped his fists out as quick as he could to try and catch her on the way out, but she'd moved too quickly, gotten the hits for free.
"You always go that fast? Or do you ever take the time to savour the moment? He shook out his arms and lunged for her, crouching before throwing a right handed uppercut, left arm loaded like a spring should she dodge. He knew she would, it was all a part of the plan. The words were coming from somewhere else though. He wasn't sure where exactly.

She was getting tired because of her quick moving and because normally she would take it slow and hit on leaves, since there was no one to train with. This time she had luxury but it was wearing her down and there wasn't as much adrenaline as with fighting the enemy and besides: knives.
"I savour the moment at the time that I have left with being fast. That time I use to eat something nice." Yes she did love food and she didn't look like it.

He came again at her so she moved to the left, exactly like he planned, but she also ducked. It was kind of obvious, that didn't mean that she didn't get hit.

Nate's fist fired off like a gunshot straight for Nastasya's gut.
"Eat something nice eh?" he replied with a wry smile. The joke was somewhat adolescent but he'd made it anyway, and had no real regrets. The blow would be a solid one though, and she was fairly close, and crouched, so getting away would be that much more difficult. All as planned, or near enough.

Without magic Nate felt a little weak. Disarmed effectively, with nothing to make his attacks land with more meaning or no 'ace in the hole' to ensure he could at least turn the tables on a foe that was winning, or put them down before a fight really broke out.

Nastasya sort of spit out some salvia, well that happened when you got punched into the guts and well she gasped for air. Not fast enough. She fell to her knees while talking but not saying much, it must have sounded like: "Oh shut up.".

She had her arms and hands wrapped around her stomach. "Now I understand why I don't like this." She normally didn't care about cuts and bruises with magic, she wasn't a weakling but pain inwards.. Hell no. She had done fairly well but at this point she couldn't see that, and it made her grumpy. What kind of fighter was she, if she even couldn't fight correctly. She wasn't impressive. Her shadow lingered back to her and somehow connected back to her feet. She growled at it softly. Coward. Suddenly returned.

Nate stood over his felled opponent
"Get up" he barked, his inner drill sergeant returning, despite the fact he'd never held the role. In spite of his usual demeanour, Nathaniel softened slightly and offered the girl a hand
"C'mon, don't tell me that tap put you down." It was an attempt at a joke, to make her feel better. He wasn't good with people. Hitting things he could manage, but the rest of it was always a little tricky. He could read well enough but sometimes making people feel better was beyond his understanding. Worse he could do.

Nastasya, still sitting on the ground, raised her eyebrow. "Do people now say: aye aye captain or what would you prefer?" She blinked rapidly to make it look innocent and sarcastic at once. However he offered her his hand and she took it. "Let this be no surprise but I was on the ground, that means down." she said as a joke. She looked away to see if people had joined the outside territory, some were indeed watching, others were fighting. She didn't feel for another fight and her stomach felt sore too.

"I really have to be punished more? I rather have food in my tummy than a fist." She said but she took again three steps away from Nate and lifted her hands in the same position as before. The left fist closer to her face and the right in front of it.
