ver since befriending Dullahan, Jingyi had found that trips have grown increasingly easier and more fun. No longer did she have to hitch rides (or pay for them) now that she had her very own beast who was willing to give her a ride. It certainly saved her time by riding upon the goat's back, plus it kept her from walking for who knows how long on her poor feet. Not only that, Dullahan was just as fast she was, which was a grateful boost.

But what was the greatest benefit, while remaining as the worst boon, was the fact that Jingyi could take her time to sightsee as she zigzagged across Kou in order to reach different military camps. No longer was she constricted to the time schedules of any ride that the redhead had taken in the past; no, now all she had to worry was about getting to her destination before the time limit. Sure, she did stretch it once in awhile, but that wasn't a bad thing!

And that's how the Beast Tamer and her goat found themselves investigating a flyer that had smacked Jingyi in the face while riding. Pulling it off, she had Dullahan stop so she could better read the slip of paper, which, in the end, was actually quite troublesome. It was entailing for the help of some guards to protect the very town she was traveling through from the raids of bandits. They've been making it their duty to attack during the dead of night, stealing off any supplies, women, and children that their sticky fingers fell upon.

Jingyi couldn't help herself but frown as she read through the letter, her fingers crunching the poor paper that rested in her grip. She wasn't sure if this kind of trouble existed out of her hometown prior to the civil war, but the fact that pigs like these were taking advantage of others in such a time? Only physical smells could have made the soldier feel even more disgusted than she was whenever she thought of situations such as these.

It was a time where the men and women of Kou were to unite with each other to defend their ideals and ways of life. Yoshiro threatened to rip away fundamental parts of Kou, culture and tradition that had made the country into the empire it was. According to the other side, Gao was threatening the peace of the world and was a madman to be fought against. Each side had something worth fighting for, and while it was unfortunate that it had led to war, but it was something that united the people together on their respective side. Like all civil wars, their conflict was a devastating one. Brothers fought against brothers, and many villages were left in a state of helplessness due to the disappearance of their strongest to fight in the war. And for scum like bandits, slavers, and all around criminals to take advantage of that?

If she was an angrier person, there would be no doubt that the woman would've snarled to herself. Crinkling the paper back into a state where Jingyi could read it, she scanned it for more information before stuffing it away in her back pocket. With a nudge to Dullahan's side, the goat was turned around and began to trot. Their direction would be the nearest border opening of the village. She had a civic duty to help protect these soldiers. She could hasten her trip to the military base later.

Inventory:

Name: Fujin
Tier: A-Tier
Type: One-handed Chokuto (sword)
Material: Tempered steel (blade); iron (rings, butt cap, and tsuba); red cloth (ito binding on the handle); scarlet tassel; golden menuki (handle ornament).
Appearance:
Jingyi's first sword and the brother blade to Rajin, it's light enough to allow its wielder to dual-wield them both at once. Fujin has a blade that's 100 cm long, along with a hilt that's 15 cm. The blade has four rings lining its non-sharp edge, with indentions along the straight, single-sharp edge. When swung, the rings along Fujin's side makes a loud, ringing noise as they clang together. There's an eye-catching red tassel attached to the end of the butt cap, and a golden menuki beneath the ito of the handle. The menuki is the Hou Clan's emblem. Fujin's guard is unique in appearance, having gone through a process that dyed the metal green, bamboo-like appearance. Unlike Rajin, Fujin lacks a sheath and has a special bit in the handle to allow it to be clipped to a belt or strap directly.

Like all Ferrum Capra, he has several horns lining his sides. They differ in size, with the one starting by his shoulder 5cm and the largest on his hip 20cm. Dullahan was bred to be larger than most Ferrum Carpa, so he stands at a height of a small horse (200 cm) with a rather wide body of about 65 cm. His body is covered in soft, white wool, though it doesn't cover his dark-brown face. The tips of his tail are black, along with the insides of his ears.

2 Re: Night Guard [Job/Oliver] on 18/07/17, 12:22 am

The rhythmic humming of someone sitting at the border of the town could be heard, someone was standing watch as the red haired Jingyi approached.  Who could it be other than someone else from the very same faction that she started with a group of confidants, Oliver Oxford of the Varia group!

He was seated on a stump of a chair.  Whittled down from a hewed over tree, one leg cast over the other, the foot bobbing as his fingers drummed against the post of the village gate. He was humming something incoherent, obviously something from his home that he heard as a child?  But just what was he doing here and how did he get here before his flame headed compatriot?

The sandy taupe haired author away from home had received information about this job from his assassin trainer, Takane.  That old crone was always trying to get him to do things and further his career as an assassin.  If it wasn't the mercenary groups trying to drag him back home forcibly, it was Takane and her shadow organization trying to mold him into a proper killer.  Was it his flippant attitude that made him the perfect candidate for it?  Who knew?

He was dressed in a full jacket that had fringe along the ends and short sleeves.  Under the jacket he wore a shirt that favored monochrome colors.  A sharp diagonal cutoff of color from black and white.  Black on the bottom and up toward the left arm and white on the opposite end of the shirt.  The sleeves stuck out with black and white alternating dots along to his hands.  The sleeves seemed baggy.  On his lower body was a pair of dark beige colored pants.  Shoes on his feet.  He was directing his gaze up to the sky, counting the stars while breathing in the gentle warm night's air.

It wouldn't be until he heard someone approaching that he sighed and stood up, kicking Big Dipper on the side to make the weapon flip into the air with a flourish before he caught it and pointed the stick outward to the approaching figure.

"Halt who goes there? And all that other jazz." He didn't seem to into the role of guard, but Oliver was more than capable of holding his own in a fight.  Oliver was ready to get into a fight.  He had one apparent weapon on his body.  hanging off his hips under the jacket were pouches containing his new orb weapon called Asteroid Belt and numerous hidden knives of The Satellites collection.

On the East, West and North ends of the village were groups of guards, but Oliver was selected to guard the South alone? Big shoes to fill.  So when the dark figure became more apparent, he sighed in relief. "Hey Jingyi, fancy meeting you here. What in the Blue Blazes of Djinn are you doing traveling around at this time of night?"

He waved her over to stand near the gate with him, looking to strike up some conversation and pass some time.  He had no clue that the village was close to being attacked by some unsavory folk, he thought he was just standing guard for the night!

eeing that she was supposed to be out on military business, and the overall danger that plagued Kou due to the civil war, Jingyi had donned her regular "outfit". As always, she wore her traditional white Hitatare, the sleeves covered by a lightweight Kote sleeve. Her robes, otherwise known as Hitatare, was white except for a black accent along the down of the shirt, the hem, and the collar. Her Kote was the same shade of white, with black cuffs and a red x-stitch pattern along the sides. Her top was matched by a Kobakama, the off-black pants tied off around her knees. Beneath the shorts were a pair of Kyahan, white and gray leggings that tucked into a pair of white tabi socks. Jingyi also made the choice to wear black Geta sandals for her footwear, tied so they wouldn't fall off while she ran or rode Dullahan. As for armor, it was her matching monochromatic black set. A kusari chain pad protected her left shoulder, its brother Sode armor protecting her right while a pair of Tekko guards kept her hands safe. Along with it was a Do breastplate that would hopefully keep her chest safe, along with a small Tare throat guard. Her legs were guarded by a Kusazuri thigh plates with Suneate protecting her shins and Hiza Yoroi for her knees. The final thing that could be noted about her appearance was the red string-rope used to tie the armor together and the white sash-like belt where she kept the clip sheath for Fujin. Her outfit was far different from the clothes she had worn when she had met Oliver the last two times, but her scarlet hair and ruby eyes would always be a dead giveaway to her identity. It also helped that she traditionally never wore any sort of face guard or helmet that obscured her face.

The reason why the red-haired soldier went for such a monochromatic wardrobe was, in part, because it matched the uniforms of her clan. And not only that, she found that it contrasted better with Fujin's scarlet tassel, allowing her enemies to be better drawn to it and not realize the fact that her blade was about to bite into their skin.

Dullahan snorted as he heard Oliver's voice, a first for the girl's newly acquired partner. The tamer in questioned gave a reassuring pat to the goat and urged him to continue walking, a large smile already on her face as she faced the familiar author. It hasn't been too long since they had last seen each other, but it was always nice to see an old face. The soldier wasn't paying too much attention to the boy or his arsenal, and it was doubtful that the red head would've noticed his other weapons even if she was. Her only obvious weapon was Fujin, the blade tucked in the folds of her sash belt and ready to be deployed. Her armed state was obvious since Jingyi did little to ever hide her weapons. There were no need for a soldier to do so, after all.

Still clutched in her hand was the flyer that she had came upon earlier, something that one could better spot in her fist as she disembarked her beast. While the goat was giving Oliver his mistrustful evil eye look, Jingyi just shrugged her shoulders with a dismissive smile.

"Hello, Oliver! I hope you've been doing well," Jingyi addressed the greeting first, either not noticing or not caring as Dullahan stepped behind her and loomed over her shoulder protectively, "And as for why I'm here, well, I heard that this town was having some problems," she then answered, holding up the crinkled paper before stuffing it into a pocket of her Kobakama, "I thought I could do something nice and help out, ya know? Something about bandits. Figured I could stop by a post and see if I could sign up."

Crossing her arms over her chest, Jingyi shifted weight from one leg to another as her head cocked to the side. Her hair was still as wild as ever, though the woman had tried to tame it by putting it up in a pony tail. Didn't stop her bangs from falling into her face, though.

"Annnyways," Jingyi continued, one of her red brows raising as she glanced at the author, "What in the "Blue Blazes of Djinn" are you doing at a guard post?" She questioned, a slight smile full of amusement on her face, ignorant of the fact that the very same bandits she had mentioned earlier were coming upon their very gate.

While Jingyi approached and started talking to him, Oliver got up to his old methods of antagonizing things unintentionally.  Not that he was aware of it or if it was not happening, but with the beast the red head came riding in on giving him the evil eye.  He just had to turn his head and squint the eye that was further away from the beast, widening the other as he gave Dullahan the stink eye with a dopey grin on his face.

"So you're still doin' the whole 'paragon of the people' shtick despite being in Varia? Mind telling me what the hell our group is supposed to do anyway with only a few people?" He took his gaze away from Dullahan to look up to Jingyi and keep his gaze on her while she got off the beast.

"And--as for why Oym here. I figured I needed to get some money for my room.  Plus having enough scratch to get some grub is always a plus side of the whole shtick I have going called 'living'." He would make purposeful air quotes with his fingers as he said the last word, as if it was some sort of hobby of his.  This was just in the lackadaisical and carefree nature of the lad who wanted to be nothing but an author.

Oliver was so preoccupied with speaking to Jingyi that he had not noticed the other dark figures coming at them until the sound of something whistling through the air and thwacking into the gate post right beside his cheek could be heard.  Oliver blinked and felt a little trickle of blood coming down his cheek as a an arrow lodged itself into the wooden gate. "Well--Seems we've got a little bit of company. You want the big guy I'll take the small fry? I get more credit if I take more than one down anyways." He jested at Jingyi while the bandits started running at them at full speed while Oliver brushed on past the heroic girl and twirled his staff overhead before bringing it around to rest along his right hip and up to his left shoulder, letting loose the three-section mode of the weapon, holding on to the end baton lengths, ready for a fight clearly.

The goons were the first to make a move as Oliver ran at them.  Seemed a sneak attack was not in their favor, but they threw daggers at Oliver, a volley of ten of them coming his way.  What a perfect time to show this off, he thought while crouching down before he leapt up and performed two swift sweeping kicks in the air.  He used his Phobos ability, letting loose four knives with the first kick and a second sustained volley of four with the second kick.  The knives would collide with the volley of ten coming his way, having aimed them so that they would clang together and create disruptions for one another.  Oliver even got three knives through dealing three quarters of B-tier damage to one goon in their gut before he landed and was surrounded by the five goons.

"Like I said! I got these louts1 You take dumpy!" He shouted to Jingyi while he put himself int he middle of a fight, unconventional for an assassin.

ingyi's brows furrowed together as she spotted an increasingly odd look that Oliver was wearing on his face. It reminded her uneasily of a mad scientist had finished quite the gruesome experiment that no undoubtedly included some poor creature becoming mutilated. But, the boy was a silly one, and he was most likely just pulling the face for a comedic effect.

Dullahan protectively stepped closer to Jingyi, his ears flat against his head as he stared at Oliver. The look had disturbed the goat, but his tamer who leaned against his form didn't seem to notice or mind. Flaring up his nostrils, black eyes squinted in a look of warning at Oliver before Dullahan turned his head away. He wouldn't give the sandy-haired brat the joy of knowing that his grin had bothered him.

"I'm not quite sure what you mean by shtick, Oliver. Is my good nature becoming too much of a routine?" Jingyi inquired innocently with a raise of her brow, an amused smile forming on her face. "And what we're trying to do is attain resources. I don't believe we have a set long-term goal, which is fine by the way, but we'll need something behind our name. I think the mentions of installing our members into positions of power came up too?" The redhead continued with a dismissive wave of her hands. She had originally joined Varia because of the good it was capable of doing, along with the fact it could help her with her own goals. Kou was a military country, and if Gao won the war, it would remain such a way. Other than attaining nobility or being born into it, one would have to either try the political field or simply garner a high rank within the army. And seeing how her dream was to become a commander, well, it all rather fit together in the girl's mind.

Stepping away from Dullahan, Jingyi crossed her arms over her breastplate as her head cocked to the side. "So the aspiring author takes a job as a guard? I know you can fight Dead Diddlers, but what about hooligans who go boo?" Jingyi teased him as her smile gained a playful edge to it. For some times now she had doubts that her partner was nothing but just an aspiring, run-away-author. He did have some tricky abilities up his sleeve, and he apparently learned them from a woman who would throw knives at him.

Dullahan's body suddenly tensed as his ears perked up, snorting as he apparently tried to smell the air. A moment later an arrow embedded itself into the wood by Oliver, leaving him with a scratch on his cheek. Jingyi's red eyes widened in both surprise and anger, her attention diverted by the noise of bandits rushing at their position. The girl mumbled under her breath a few choice words, an art passed down to her by her sailor of a father. With a swift motion of her hand, she withdrew Fujin. Windcutter had certainly changed from the last time Oliver had seen the blade in action, right alongside the soldier who wielded it.

"If you wish it, then I certainly may~" Jingyi somewhat eagerly replied, her eyes narrowing as she raised her blade. The soldier took a deep breath before shooting forwards as she began to charge at the main goon. She had certainly grown much faster in the separating months between their first partnership to their current, evident due to the fact that she was nothing but a blur as she crossed the short distance. Dullahan, not about to be left behind by his tamer, raced after her as the both of them left Oliver to his troubles.

The leader of the bandits, perhaps realizing the hurricane of whooping that was about to be delivered, promptly began to back pedal. His hands reached into his back pockets, fingers curling around a match and a bomb that was almost too big for his fist. Pulling it out, the bandit turned around as he continued to retreat, the match striking against the metal of the bomb. Lighting the fuse, he held it for a moment before looking over his shoulder and throwing it behind him. His speed reared up immediately as he truly began to flee so he wouldn't get caught in the crosshairs of his own weapon.

Dullahan, ever so vigilant over the task of keeping Jingyi safe, cut off in front of the girl and shoved her back. Jingyi grunted as she slammed into pounds of wool, stumbling back and allowing her beast to herd her away, seconds from the miniature explosion.

Meanwhile, the bandit swiftly retrieved his bow and pulled the string taut. An arrow was nocked, aimed straight at the eye of the beast. One of his own eyes closed as he prepared for the Ranged Attack, a smirk gracing his features.

Using her free hand to rub the back of her neck, Jingyi glanced at her enemy before promptly shoving Dullahan aside. As the arrow was released, Jingyi dug the soles of her geta into the dirt, easily sidestepping the attack with a single Power Step.

The thug was notching another arrow when Jingyi clapped her left leg against her kusazuri while using Fujin's tip to point at her target. Dullahan, all too familiar with the starting commands for Lightning Ram, was already racing forwards before he initiated the technique. Static electricity jumped around his top horns as his head lowered, ramming themselves into the bandit's gut quicker than he could react. With a toss of his head, Dullahan used his strength to throw the bandit away after using Lightning Ram.

A sharp whistle from Dullahan forced him to retreat as Jingyi brandished her weapon with a flourishing wave of her arm. The fallen bandit leader was collecting himself off the ground when Jingyi crossed the distance between them. She wasn't running at full speed this time, but instead, she was getting herself ready for the Knock-Out Hit.

Running at the man at an angle, he had finally risen to his feet when Jingyi breached his immediate range. With a swift turn of her heel, the redhead swung out her free hand. The punch socked the bandit leader's nose, her strength behind the blow easily breaking the soft cartilidge, but she didn't stop there. With a quick swipe of her blade, Jingyi raked Fujin across the man's abdomen in a horizontal strike. The blow seemed to be too much for the man, however, apparent when he stumbled back and collapsed.

"Did I put too much oomph into it?" Jingyi thought to herself briefly, her brows furrowing together as she went to sheath Fujin. It was then when she remembered her human partner, causing her to pivot around to check on his well-being. She had handed him five foes to face off, and while she knew that Oliver was a good fighter, Jingyi didn't want to risk the fact that they had outnumbered him too much.

Oliver was surrounded on all sides in a near perfect pentagonal formation by the goons.  Jingyi was dealing with the boss while Oliver mused about what she said regarding the Varia Group.  It was supposed to get them into political positions with their homelands? That was laughable.  Good luck convincing his father that Goi were nothing but human batteries.

But he didn't have time to think about that.  He had these men armed with people stabbers to get down to business with, "Now, boys, I appreciate that you all want to dance with me but I'm a one on one kind of person.  So why don't we take turns alright? Draw straws?"

Why did he always try to annoy people? Well it could be that was just his twisted nature.  It could be that he was just trying to make things more favorable for himself?  Or it could be it was just too funny to witness as the group that was ready to gang up on Oliver break down into one coming right for him.

Oliver spun the staff Big Dipper around his body before he brought it up for an uppercut against the first goon's chin.  It would knock his head back and allow Ollie to pivot about on his heels and crack the end of Big Dipper across the goon's temple, sending him toppling to the ground after knocking them out before they even hit the dirt.

One down, four to go, Oliver rolled his shoulders and prepared for the next attack that would be coming his way. "See, now he drew the short end of the stick. Kind of literally." He shrugged and prepared for the next attack.  The one from his back left and his right came for a pincer attack.

The first goon was met with Oliver bringing his staff down overhead, knocking the person into a bent over position before he lunged forward, thrusting the weapon into the guy's gut.  He finished up with letting the sections of his cane out, twirling it across his body left and right, pummeling their head and body with the weapon before he collected them all into one hand with a powerful uppercut to the underside of the jaw again.

The third goon was getting a special technique.  Oliver leapt backwards onto the fallen down second goon, thrusting out the sections of his cane into a powerful attack. Utilizing Violent Shooting Star, Oliver shot the cane sections out straight into the bridge of the man's nose, sending them toppling over and rolling backwards through the grass.

The other two goons came at him while he was standing on the third and was met with Close Combat. Of course he was able to avoid most of the attacks but he was sliced and stabbed multiple times on the stomach and back.

Oliver winced in pain before a flick of the right hand got a blade sticking out of his sleeve, showing his hand into the goon's cheek, giving him a cheek to cheek piercing and to the ground only to be stomped on with a blade from his shoe, straight into the stomach.

The final goon turned to try and run from the sight of his brothers in arms being trounced so easily. Oliver took out two knives and through them with such precision that he severed both Achilles' Tendons, rendering the man a paraplegic.

When Jingyi finally came over, Oliver waved and winced. "Hey there, would you mind cleaning up the mess? I need to get these wounds treated."

ingyi looked over Oliver and snapped her attention, causing Dullahan to perk up and glanced at her. With a motion of her hand, the redhead gestured to the sandy-haired boy and his wounds before bending down and grabbed one of the men. The goat snorted and pressed his ears back before compliantly trotting over to his target. If Oliver would accept it, Dullahan would lick his wounds with his Healing Tongue, the Ferrum Carpa's saliva quickening the process for the scratches to close while disinfecting them.

Meanwhile, Jingyi had grabbed hold of another bandit before dragging them back to the outpost. She held them by their wrists, allowing them to slide against the floor before dropping them by Oliver's abandoned chair. Her first order of business was finding something to tie them with. Pulling out some rope, she used it to bid the bandits together at their torsos before going back.

It only took her a couple of short trips to relocate the goons and their leader to the post, where they would then be tied up in a group. Once she was done, Jingyi took a step back, wiping her hands on her pants leg as she inspected them. She had used a special knot to tie them together, ensuring that they couldn't pull themselves apart no matter which direction they pushed if they woke up.

"Hey, Ollie! That was some good job you did with those goons. I've see you've been practicing some, huh?" Jingyi commented with a smile as she headed back to the author in question. Dullahan, after seeing his tamer, crept away from Oliver to stand at her side instead. "You're not too hurt I hope, yeah?" The redhead asked innocently with a tilt of her head, a soft smile on her face. But behind the affable front, she wondered quietly to herself about the "old croon" who had taught him how to fight. Most authors she met didn't have a clue how to wield the weapons Oliver held, and if she was correct about what she had heard of Magnostadt, they relied on Magic over there. They didn't need mundane, melee weapons, after all. So would that mean that Oliver found someone to train him during his stay in Kou? Or was she just overthinking everything about the author?

Oliver looked as the big beast came up to him and blinked a couple of times. He was quickly licked all over by the goat thing, and his wounds were treated? Well--that solved the issue of being wounded. Now he had the issue of trying to clean the saliva off of his body.

"Uhm--thank you? I'm alright now. I guess." Oliver stated while holding his arms out, hands pointed toward the ground as he looked at his soaked clothing.

"Wanna come back to my room for the day? I need to get cleaned up and I would like to talk about Varia some more. And yes thank you too you big goat."

Oliver would guide Jingyi back if she joined him, and would show her to the inn of his that he had gotten a room in. He would excuse himself to the bathroom, and in the room were many documents, some signed by Takane and with instructions on who he was to hurt, who he was to kill. All of the names of people that were still in perfect health.

Would Jingyi invade the privacy of her friend? Would she respect it and let him be his own man? Well only one way to tell.
