Rilla scoops up the child into her arms and heads for the door as fast as possible while calling forth her ability to soothe those in dstress "By the power of my birthright, I call forth the gentle power of life to ease this troubled spirit" (OC: Calming Touch)

*As the warrior lay there recovering from hitting the Walls the demons vengeful strikes were too much, as he vainly reached for his blade the first strike knocked his shield away as the earthen fury then devastated his armour and torso, coughing up blood as he collapsed onto his front, sword still clutched in hand as he lay there still and silent.

Recoiling from the blast of demonic air magic the archer got his footing again, seeing an opening as the table was flung at the demon he unleashed a volley of arrows as fast as he could muster at the creature, attempting to turn it's earthy body into a pin cushion.

Seeing Rilla get the child to safety and his ally slump to the ground Des gripped his sword even tighter as the blood trickled down his face as he continued his brawl with the demon, waiting for his opening Des took a step back before leaping at the beast with a righteous roar (roar of fear) using all his strength to bash the creatures claws away with his shield, lunging his sword at the beasts throat, hoping to hit the critical spot before its claws found his flesh with this surprise all out offensive ((magic double)).*

Kira, having left the grove since Rilla had fled it, had been drawn to the smoke of the nearby areas like a moth to a...well, flame.
Only moths tended to avoid flames of an infernal nature, and didnt carry swords. Usually, at least...

He had not moved quite as quickly as the others, treading at a steady pace toward the Healing Centre. He was still sleepy. He had taken a nap, actually, before Rilla had rushed off.
There was a good reason for that, actually. He was tired, and that meant bad things when you were fighting (mistakes happened, but when they meant you lost an arm, a mistake could be very, VERY painful)...
...Oh, and he no longer had Death Magic clinging to his body. He had felt depressed before, which was only reinforced by the Death magic clinging to his soul like a poison. Now he had his head clear, he felt much lighter, much more energetic, much more...passionate in his desire to use his skills again.
As such, no death clung to him now.

He had not rushed because he was still adjusting to the new feelings his body was incoperating into a defence, and empowering his natural desires, making him more diligent, more capable...more effective.
His body burned. Not good. It was painful.
But it didnt last. He flexed an arm as he walked toward the burning Centre and took in a deep breath, the breath touching his soul itself.
And then he really DID burn. The heat around him lasted till he let the breath out. He smiled.
Yes...fire hurt. But it wasnt depressing.

Stepping rather carefully into the Centre, he drew out the katana at his hip and stepped forth.
The roar that Des had unleashed alerted him swiftly to the location of the targets. People were running out here and there, which was a good sign. It meant the heroes were keeping the demon occupied. Rilla dashed out of a roomt oward the doro and Kira moved aside. She was carrying a child...
Still quite calmly, almost painfully slowly, Kira wandered into the area with the others, taking deep, slow breaths. Each time, heat grew around him as he breathed in, and died down as he breathed out. It grew hotter each time, but was controlled, clearly, by his breathing.
It HURT to use fire too quickly like that, before he was fully adjusted.

Ashes to ashes.
He breathed in deeply, deeper than before, and flames licked from nowhere, apparently above his skin, till Kira seemed cloaked in magical flame, like armour, but a lot more dangerous. It hurt, but not for long, as his body adjusted his Ki correctly, making the flames ineffective upon him. Then they vanished, altogether, drawn inside his body and cancelled out.

Go to the wastes, you trash.

He lunged, sword going right for the neck with precision and grace, but a direct brutality, hilt gripped in both hands, and a twisted grin on his lips. No fancy tricks had ever been intended. Just a demon seperated from its head and thinning the ranks a bit, helping a fellow warrior in the process. And a LOT of blood...
Yes, fire was great. Axes, however, were not...


((OOC: Kira currently has his ki aligned to Fire, so cannot be affected in any way positive or negative, by it. He will be slightly like said element, naturally, a bit crazy, passionate and random, till he falls asleep and it changes. Also, if the hit actually DOES hit the demon Des is targetting, Ten to the neck?))

Reaching the door, Rilla ran on. Kira ran past her and Rilla felt relief at the sight of the swordsman even as she clutched the child to her. She ran, heading outwards, until she found somewhere flames had not reached. (OC: As I'm guessing half the place is up in flames by now... ) Stopping as soon as it was safe from imminent immolation, she quickly examined the child, praying that his injuries had not been too much for the small frame to bear. (OC: DNW)

((Quick ref change))

The air demon recovers its stance, and charges Doki, it's unarmed swings leaving crackling trails through the air, and scorched lines across anything it hits. Doki's defensive skills serve him well, but the demon still manages to land one blow, scorching up Doki's left side. ((Lightning Tripple))

The Earth demon lumbers around from the body on the floor, loosing interest now the man had stopped moving, and turns to find a new target, just in time to receive a half dozen arrows to various points across its body. Several of the arrows shatter on the creature's hide, but the force still sends it staggering back as Kira enters the room, and lunges for the demon's throat. It's hard to tell exactly how damaged the creature is, as it falls back from the barrage of blows, stumbling, tripping, and landing very heavily on the guard lying on the floor behind it.

The fire demon flinches instinctively from Hardes's roar, and he manages to score a telling blow across the creature's upper torso, narrowly missing the throat. In return, it grabs his shield in both hands, and attempts to either rip it out of his grip and throw it behind, or simply break his arm in the straps ((Two strength))

Outside, Rilla finally finds time to examine the child. He appears to be around eight, and quite definately conscious as he gazes at her in fear and pain. ((-4 to each arm, both are broken.))

Rilla sits down. Holding the child in her lap she utters a spell of healing "Dragon of Life, Protector of the Innocent, grant me the power of life to heal this wounded child" (OC: Critical Heal) while gently rocking herself and the child to and fro. (OC: Unless this would actually prevent spellcasting)

* as the earthen demon fell back the guard on the floor hardly moved under it's almighty bulk, just shuddering from the impact as the body lay there lifeless under the monstrosity. Seeing the creature stumble back from this new attacker the archer paused, unable to take a clear shot he turned his attention to the air demon facing the other way, pulling his string tight as he unleashed the arrow streaking to the creatures spine as doki held it's gaze.

Des had only just recovered his footing when the beast grabbed his shield, unable to hold his ground as the shield swung to his left he went with it. Eyes glazing over slightly as he felt the surge of adrenaline kick into his system as his grip tightened ((burst of strength, now to strength 4)) , swinging with the shield he swung around with the momentum to get behind the flaming demon, using his shield arm to tightly grab the front of  beasts neck, ignoring the pain of the flaming skin as he stood at the beast's back and drove his blade as hard as he could through ((magic double)) , aiming to pierce the demons black heart as he choked it violently, doing his best to keep it still*

Doki's armour torn and now useless causes him to go on the offensive, He ducks under the demon's guard and flicks his sword (or himself) up then down in quick succession. ((2 x Light & Life Six to the chest)) Scanning the room and seeing people injured, he gathers his Lord and wielder's power around him.

((Yeah! Back in!))

Eryssa feels the flow of the Life Magic run through her and awakes, the Greater Heal bringing her back from unconsciousness.
She picks herself up and casts a glance around the room. The demons were being taken care of, so she turned her attention to the injured, starting with the old woman she'd been helping before they fell.
She placed a hand on her chest and recited "Giver of Life, please lend me your strength to heal this innocent." ((Lesser Heal))

The wind demon, already badly injured, crumples quickly from Doki's counter attack, though he feels from the touch of his magic that the guard beneath the earth demon's bulk is well beyond his help.

The demon's attempts to remove Hardes' shield wrench his arm painfully ((double to the shield arm)), and as Hardes calls upon Heroic reserves, he can feel the demon fighting back with its own ((Unholy Strength: Strength 3)), but its efforts are insufficient to overcome Hardes' now massive power. He crashes into the back of the demon and grabs for its neck before impaling it on his blade. It also slumps to the floor, but not before unleashing the last of its power. Thankfully for those in the room, Hardes' body contains the worst of the blast. ((Hardes takes a heat metal to sword, shield and torso armour, and a fire tripple to each location. Everyone takes a knockdown and Flare))

The Earth demon is about half-way to its feet when this happens, and falls back upon the hapless guard beneath him before beginning to rise again.

As Hardes puts the fire demon down and out, the blast struck Kira...partially.
As the power of the flames drew close to his body, the flames burning under his own skin leapt up, as though burning through his flesh to greet the incoming danger, and in an eyeblink, drew the fires into him, harmless as they were to his body. The flames vanished, just as Kira was knocked to the ground by the same shockwave that everyone else suffered.

Taking a moment to find "up" again, Kira leapt up, and drew his attention to the demon of earth. Certainly, this was causing a fair bit of trouble, and now he could make full use of the offensive side of his ki.
The flames, travelling down his arms, burst from his hands and along the blade he grasped, wrapping the steel in flame, adding a far more painful edge to his attack. Kira took a breath, gathered himself, and in a single lunge, cleared the space between himself and the stony foe.

His sword raised above his head as he lunged, it came down in a powerful, beautiful arch as the brought the blade down upon the demon's head, both hands guiding the blade with controlled force, strong but precise. The addition of the flames were not expected to do much, but it certainly added bite, and he hoped that the demon might be slightly caught off guard by the strong blow, or at least now focus attention upon him.

((Ten, to the head))

Once the physical wounds at least are healed, Rilla stands with some effort and thinks about where the safest place is likely to be. She recalls seeing burning trees in the grove and for a moment her thoughts drift to Fin and the rest of her friends who are not inside. Hoping devoutly they are safe, Rilla heads for the nursery as swiftly as she can; her heart pains her at the thought of leaving her friends behind to battle the demons, but she knows she has to make sure those who Cannot defend themselves are protected. As she goes, Rilla tries to soothe and reassure the young boy as best she can.

*Seeing Doki dispatch the air demon the archer span on his heels, pulling his bow torque at the earthen beast. Waiting to place the shot he was suddenly knocked back by the fire demons final blast, his arrow flying into the ceiling as he landed on the broken table, his eyes slowly adjusting he searched for his bow. Recovering his footing he kelt up on one knew and drew an arrow, waiting to take a shot at the earthen demon as his eyes recovered.

As Des held the demon tight he felt his shield arm being pulled from it's socket, gritting his teeth as the magic blade pierced it's chest, feeling wound spilling out over his hand. As the beast spited him with it's last breath Des roared out in pain and true grit, holding to the beast to contain the blast until it fully erupted, feeling it's flames washing over and engulfing his body as he was knocked to the ground. Laying there for a moment as he got his bearings, his skin burning as his chain armour started to singe and burn his tabard and leather, roaring out again in agony as he struggled to his knees, his left arm completely limp after being ripped from it's socket. Dropping his sword as it singed his hand, growling as he struggled to unhook his armour before it burnt his skin, falling back to the ground in frustration as the pain started to sink deeper into his skin*

"arrrgh! Bloody Beasts!"

Doki falls to the ground, but jumps up almost instantly. Seeing 'Des on the floor, and the flaming armour burning him he takes a deep breath to center himself...hoping his idea will work, he leaps across the room and brings his blade down on exactly the right point o nthe armour ((Shattering Blow)). He then starts to enchant, allowing his healing power to flow into 'Des.
