After having arrived within the confines of the capitol of Heliohapt, Zadi booked a room at an inn and rested and ate and drank and did all the normal things that a nearly starved and dehydrated person would do having having spent three days in the desert. Granted, half the time was spent meditating and destroying the Black Pyramid so the trip through the desert from Zadi's starting point could have simply lasted one full day. Anyone with Zadi's body and mentality could make it one day in such a desert easily. In fact, a day without food or drink is within some cultures.

Anyway, after the resting and relaxation, Zadi's body felt fitter than ever. The struggle through the desert had a fifty-fifty chance of either making Zadi stronger or making Zadi weaker in terms of physical capabilities. In this case, Zadi's body didn't end up getting any better or worse. The fifty-fifty chance was real, but the struggle made both outcomes a reality. A rather good thing for Zadi but getting stronger was something that Zadi needed if he was to fulfill his desires of changing the world. Therefore, Zadi had decided not interact with the "old man's game" as Zadi named his new allies, as it stands. Instead, for the time being, Zadi would make himself stronger.

Better start exercising.

Zadi stayed at the inn for a few weeks doing nothing but pushups, situps, and whatever else he could think of in order to get stronger. He ate, drank, and went right back to increasing his stamina and strength, sculpting his body into perfection!

Couple of weeks later and Zadi felt super duper...exhausted. Not only exhausted but also sore and in pain. Only natural really, so Zadi felt that he needed to go outside the inn and relax and see people beat each other up in the relatively small arena. Maybe he'd learn a thing or two about swordsmanship or how to properly use a shield aside from blocking.

After a short walk with some stretching in between, Zadi arrived at the capitol's arena. It wasn't as large as their former arena that had been destroyed so long ago and, to Zadi's disappointment, not rebuilt into something grander like a coliseum rather than just an arena. Perhaps Heliohapt should be the first to be changed? Zadi's trian of thought started to wain from strength training but once he heard the clash of weapons from the arena and cheers for blood, Zadi's train took a second detour onto the proper track towards strength.

The arena was a bit small compared to almost all arenas that Zadi had seen, which honestly wasn't such a bad thing seeing as Zadi hasn't been to many arenas. Anyway, Zadi witnessed and obserbed the clash of weapons between a few brawlers. The techniques reminded Zadi of struggle rather than skill. Survival over precision. At first Zadi didn't think much of such a display, but after a few matches, there seemed to be a pattern between those that used a survivalist approach and a precision approach. Nobody died during the matches, but most, if not all, brawlers looked to be half dead. Those that weren't were the survivalists. Zadi was rather impressed at how such a technique can help keep someone alive after a fight. The survivalists may not have won all that often, but they left relatively unscathed compared to the precisionists. Granted, the survivalists gave up before the match looked to be over, but with Zadi's tendency to die, he needed to learn the art of survival.

Zadi left the arena and thought of ways to integrate his style, i he had a style, with that of a survivalist approach. Survivalist meaning knowing when to dodge and how to take a hit better. Obviously there is not way to take a massive fire better than being engulfed by one, but perhaps this style would help Zadi think quicker and react in a more thoughtful manner. However, Zadi discerned that to learn such a style, aside from being put in a fatal situation, one must observe nature's struggle. The final knowledge that Zadi needed in order to get stronger was to pick an animal with a suitable fighting style and mimic it through integration.

Alright, what animal combines quick attacks with quick movements yet quicker defenses? A mantis is quick but not defensive. An armadillo is defensive but not quick. Hmmm...a bug maybe. No, something on a bigger scale. A crab? Better, though it doesn't do much other than pinch and scurry. Perhaps a broader range of animals or something similar.

Eventually Zadi decided that he needed to mimic the crustacean family of animals. Why? Because they were both quick and defensive. Their outer shells were usually very though which would allow Zadi to be quick while using a shield in his personalized style. And in this case of animal families, Zadi would need to go out and study them for his life as a Balbaddan dock worker was filled with stray crabs and lobsters galore. Though in more advanced training Zadi would visit Balbadd again and learn about other creatures aside from the crab and lobster. The shrimp was a possible candidate, but they were just smaller lobsters. Though one may never know what the ocean holds within its waters. All the same, Zadi needed to begin his training.

Over the course of a few weeks, almost a month, Zadi integrated the survivalist style of the few crustaceans that he knew of. His sword as a pincer and his shield as a hardened shell. Not only that, but Zadi trained footwork in order to allow himself to move from side to side quickly like a crab and maneuver himself in quick and repetitive steps like a lobster. After the rigorous training, zadi felt read to train a few legitimate "Crustacean-Style" techniques. The name was filled with power and, so Zadi, represented strength and resilience! Though, Zadi knows that "Crustacean-Style" isn't the most creative of names so don't remind him.
