Icarus Saerin




He couldn't but be really impressed with Runa's flow on the ship. She was so at ease with it, shown by the way she handled the ship perfect. Bringing it it's maximum capacity, judging when to bring it to full burn where it wouldn't have to run too long before it caught up with the other ship's speed, and when to bring it back down so that it could drift steadily without over taking it.

Grim had picked the taskforce, and had shown a bit of his prowess at leadership with who he picked. Icarus would have been the main defense, Although he was sure Runa was capable of putting up a fight, Icarus was trained for that specific purpose. Runa knew ships better than anyone else on deck, so she would have the best chance of finding what was wrong with the ship and diffusing the situation. And Zherynnia would was the only one who most likely the knowledge capable of being of any help on the ship. Icarus himself knew a bit of the ships, but not enough to be of mention, mainly names and basic uses.

Runa got to work latching her ship to the runaway vessel. Gliding around the ship with her trademark on-board grace. Icarus noted how she was better than most of the male captains he had seen on his time on Allevent. He smiled a bit but got to work tossing the anchors and tying them in. When he looked to the side, Runa had, by herself, brought the plank to the next ship over. How she lugged the heavy thing he would never know, but he didn't question. The group walked across to the next ship over and he followed Runa around, making sure to stay alert to any shifts in nearby air pressure, in case something tried to sneak up on them. Runa led them to the crystal, which unlike her ship was up on the deck, behind the captain's wheel. She strode up, muttering to herself. And immediately got set to begin working on it. Icarus had barely noticed Zherynnia tilting back and forth with a pained or lost look on her face. He was about to check on her, when her eyes snapped to focus and she tossed herself onto Runa. Icarus grabbed the hilt of his sword, ready to draw.

"We need to deactivate the core before we touch the device" She said. pulling out her bow and sending a few warning shots into the planks above. Icarus heard some shuffling. Whoever was up there must have been deathly still and held their breathing to a low point to avoid alerting him. The book eater was already on that. But from the corner of his eye he saw a flash of a shadow from behind the core. He looked over and saw nothing there. But decided to inspect it. If they met any adversity, better to know their surroundings and what was in them. He went behind the core, and saw the hole in the ground for the cablery to go into. Normally it was tightly fit around the core, but now it was gaping, as if something tore through it. Icarus looked into the hole, Whatever he had seen must have gone through there. The hole was big enough to go through it, but he didnt know how deep it went. He held out his palm and immediately a small glowing ball of bluish-white light appeared before him. He manuevered the ball into the hole, illuminating a fifteen foot drop to a room with a bunch of cablery. Some of it was chewed through. He turned back and went to Runa. "I think I found something. I am going to check it out. Just bang on the floor to let me know if you need anything, I shouldn't be far. Ill be back soon. He said. And with that, turned back to the hole, dropped down, softening his landing with a cushion of air, and was greeted with a long silvery tentacle wrapping around his throat and flinging him across the room. He landed against one of the iron walls and crumpled to the ground. Barely able to focus on the large caithness before him. It looked like a horse-sized rat, but its body was wrapped with knots of orange-tinged wires, and its one long tail was accompanied by many other wires that moved around before it like tails as well, whipping and snapping wildly. And its eyes were trained on Icarus. The whites replaced by a cloudy black color, and the irises the only color distinguised in its eyes, looking like glowing rings the color of the caith it has been tainted with. The rat let out a low growl, and made its way to Icarus, His head throbbing and and headed clouded too far to think straight.
