As me and Vortex clashed, I noticed Selest’s appearance through the corner of my eye. She yelled something, although I was to focused on the fight to let many gaurd down and listen to her. Selest then threw a knife, which bounced off of Vortex’s armor.
Vortex made the mistake of looking over, and I took that as a chance to strike her. I slashed at her, and one of my knives found a small opening in her armor, puncturing her skin. She let out an inhuman hiss and transformed into a huge harpy eagle, her patron animal, if I remembered correctly.
She lunged at me, clawing at my face. Dodging, I instinctively shapeshifted into my patron animal, a golden eagle. Because harpy eagles were the largest species of eagle, I was rather small compared to her. However, I still felt powerful in this form, and an indescribable rush of energy washed over me.
My vision was sharper, and my feathers, which were a brighter, more golden color than most golden eagles, were sleek and allowed me to slice cleanly through the air. Claws extended, I dove into Vortex, my glowing gold eyes burning with rage. They sliced into her, and I felt satisfied with my work. As she shrieked in pain, she struck me with her knife like beak, causing me to reel back in pain.
She was stronger than me, larger than me, and far more experienced. I knew that I had a slim change of winning, but I was to deep into this fight to back out. I reached out with my strong talons, grasping one of her wings in them and pulling. We both lost altitude, and Vortex summoned a gust of wind to force me off of her. I lost my balance and wobbled a bit in the air, and she came at me, furious.
She slammed into me, wrapping her wickedly long claws around my body. I could feel them digging into me, and her beak slashed at the back of my neck repeatedly. Letting out a cry of mixed pain and anger, I tore away from her and transformed back into my human form, flying in place with my stormy wings. Vortex copied me, and I could see drops of blood on her face from under her helmet. Although, I knew that I probably had more injury’s than her.
Feel free to pov off of this, just please don’t stop the conflict.
