Description

Image

Name : Taao

Age : 23

Race : Namekien

Strengths/ Weaknesses : Taao is the youngest of his clan's warrior class to be considered an elite among his peers. As a namek he lacks the over abundance of energy and stamina required for drawn out battle the saiyajin heroes of justice usually find themselves in, and denies him the use of excessive energy waves, making ending battles opponents as quickly and effectively as possible is his usual plan of action with dealing with fighters of superior strength or speed. When facing a fighter with similar physical abilities. He also lacks significant endurance. He makes up for these deficiencies as a fighter with a superior mind, sharp instincts, refined senses, cat-like reflexes and a affinity for forming battle strategies in the heat of battle, making him shine as support in drawn out battle where he would fall short as the direct attacker.

Signature Moves :

- Self Regeneration ; Like all namekians he has the ability to regenerate non lethal wounds and severed limbs with relative ease.

- Healing ; Taao also has a talent spiritual abilities associated with namekians. He can heal nearly any wound, even some that would usually prove fatal unlike with his naturally self regenerating body.

- Crusher Wave ; Charge up a full powered ki blast which erupts from both users palm in a single blast of energy which can have a larger are of effect than a focused energy wave, blasting opponents back in an explosion of power. Can be charged for greater effect.

- Hidden Talent ; His most impressive ability which can have to affects. One; with the ability Taao has the power to see into a person and tease out their full potential, even granting the ability to perform feats beyond the fighters current limit. Though the secondary effect is limited, depending on the will of the fighter. This cannot be done with just any, a condition unknown to even Taao must be met for it to be applied. Perhaps even on himself?

Personality : Like all nameks Taao is naturally peaceful, calm and collected. However unlike his kin he does not succumb to the usual trend of xenophobia that leads his kind to preferring seclusion whilst among other alien species. It is this open mindedness that dared him to leave the safety of his home planet. Taao in fact cherishes things like diversity in appearance and mannerisms found in creatures with very different backgrounds, as he considered himself a student of the universe, perpetually learning and expanded his awareness. He can adapt to almost any circumstance calmly and without hesitation, a discipline of self which allows him such a keen tactical mind. Though he is an exceptional fighter, he is a namekian first and a warrior second. Meaning he will fight if he must, but will avoid conflict if possible as he finds no personal satisfaction in testing his might against other fighters.

So begins...

Taao placed his right hand against the warm exoskeleton of one of Melt's indigenous insectoid species, a juvenile male, even now he could feel the young boy's life force ebbing. Dammit, the war is supposed to be over, who would do this? Taao proceeded with what was a routine procedure of bolstering the creatures wavering life force with his own, transferring energy into his body in order to speed up the healing process of his energy burned exoskeleton. By his reckoning the wounds could only be a product of Frost's army signature arm blaster, but that just didn't make sense. Frost and his army where the heroes that liberated planet Melt, he'd worked side by side with the men in the relief effort. They where heroes. Yet this was obviously no accident even now he could feel the tole healing the boy took on his body, strength left his body all at once as a heavy sweat left grin skin glistening in the low light. He'd managed to bring the boy back from the brink, good as new, but not for free. Something was seriously wrong, he could feel it in his gut.

The meltian boy began to stir, he groaned for a few seconds before sitting up on his elbows. Taao waited patiently for him to awake fully, though he was eager to get to get to the bottom of this. " you saved my life, thank you, I thought I was a goner "

Taao stood and placed a firm grip on the Meltian boy's shoulder and squeezed " Tell me what happened, who did this to you? "

" I don't know who they where, they said they worked for Lord Heeta and that Frost was dead, we tried to fight for ourselves like he taught us but a man in red just killed everyone! My Parents too...he said our world belonged to lord Heeta and that it's p-p-pointless to resist "

The first part seemed to spill out his mouth all in one breath, it took him a couple seconds to process it. Frost dead? How could that be, and who the was this Heeta creep? If they ruthless enough to slaughter these beaten down people in cold blood, then they have to be stopped Taao stood up to his full 216 cm and pulled his cloak over his head. He came to this planet to aid the relief effort, not fight a war, but he wasn't going to stand by while the people he helped save be enslaved all over again. Guru would be ashamed. The boy objection when he declared his intentions, said all he would was get killed to, but Taao wasn't going to die here, and neither would anyone else if he could help it. He told the boy to hold up in his home until things where safe and flew off in the direction of the fighting.

Taao was deep in thought as he soared high over the terrain, deciding to fly at a speed that was neither fast nor slow in order to actually figure out just what exactly he planned on doing. He had no idea how many enemies he faced, was this some rouge with a single squadron, or a true invasion force? Was he still truly ready to fight? All these questions and more swirled in his mind,

Taao had long since renounced his warriors ways in lieu of a life as a healer shortly after he arrived on planet Melt and witnessed firsthand the conditions war had left the land and it's people. Back at his home planet there was no precedent for such destruction and loss of life, namekians lived relatively peacefully, he and his warrior kin only ever fought to protect the Dragon clan in order to preserve their most sacred treasure. Unlike other Senshi ( warrior nameks ), Taao inherited the ability to heal wounds in similar manner as those of the Dragon Tribe, even more rare the innate ability to fly. Taao felt he never understood why he had the power, until he left his home and eventually arrived on planet Melt where he's served as a healer for the disadvantaged natives, who until Frost arrive, stood no chance at all.

" Dammit " he growled through clenched teeth If Frost is truly dead, then they stand no chance even still, they'll be enslaved all over again " No, I won't accept that. Whoever these scum are, prepare to feel the power of a Senshi! "

With strengthened resolve, FWOOSH! like an arrow he flew at his max speed in the direction in which the boy had directed, though he noticed he reached the limits of his speed rather quickly, no doubt a result of saving the meltian boy's life. However there was no time to rest, it was time to act. Even now as he drew nearer his sensitive ears could pick up sounds of battle.

" An army, just my luck "

I've never grown to dislike somone so quickly... I think I'll enjoy putting this monkey in her place. Dashade refrained from replying to the girl's comments when his scouter started receiving the reading of a new power level entering range, his head snapped to get a clearer reading, though keeping one eye peeled in case the Saiyin attempted to make use of the short distraction. "That power level... it's spiking, and all units are already here..."

He turned back to glare at the Saiyin, quickly moving his hands up to attempt to contact the Commander again, hoping that his opponent wouldn't cut him off. "Commander Holly, there seems to be another power level entering the battle. I do not have visual, but it is certainly not one of ours"

Taao had arrived well in time to hang back and witness the heated exchange between with an alien who was obviously the same species as Frost, only his armor was black. He didn't think there was anyone one this planet really strong enough to appose an invading force so he was surprised to find that the army already being pressed, shocked when he realized it was only two female warriors. They where both giving their all, one stood alone against the army of grunts while the other battled who appeared to be the commander in single combat! It was an incredible sight that gave him a much needed boost of hope and confidence, he was almost beginning to think that they wouldn't need his help at all, so he decided to wait for the right moment to make his move and until then he would wait and passively store as much Ki as possible without alerting the enemy.

Using the momentary distraction caused by the violent Ki wave to close in on the battle, in the next second after blasting down the brunt of the armies forces she broke off, charging directly at her comrade who'd just lost upper hand of her own fight. Charging straight at an fully aware enemy like that, bad move as she quickly learned when the black alien hurled the other woman directly at her. The resounding crunch of their bodies slamming into each other was enough to make him wince in pain. By the time they where in a tangled heap on the ground Taao had made it to ground under the cover of the boulder sized chunks broken from the mountain. From there he only had to cross 15 meters and unleash his surprise attack. Easy enough. However in his current state, without much time to prepare, he doubted seriously that he'd have enough power to kill the guy, however killing for him was a last resort.

"1...", " 2.." on the count of three lept over the boulder with a front-flip. In the time it took to reach the ground he'd gathered all the strength into his leg muscles that he could while at the same time focusing all the Ki he'd managed to gather in his right hand. The moment his balls of his feet hit the planets surface he rushed at the enemies back at break neck speed, crossing 10 of those meters in almost a blink of an eye, right arm outstretched with his fingers together, sharp nails forming forming a blade as sharp or sharper than any blade aimed to pierce the alien through the left shoulder. He did all this in the matter of seconds, and there was no battle cry to give away his position or angle of attack. This was his gamble.

"Now, with those two down I have a few seconds to spare. I must finish this before there are any more casualties" Dashade raised both of his hands together aiming down at the fallen warriors, briefly lamenting that these two could cause so much trouble. Was this the average power of the Saiyins? Could this Empire hope to stand up to the inevitable resistance they will all pose? These have to be rouges... Or else I only see more bloodshed in the future The Arcosian intended to finish the two off with a barrage of Ki attacks while they were vulnarable, and he almost came to doing it as well. Almost.

"Now, TO FINISH THI-" Before he could let loose the cry and finish off the two threats for good, he only just noticed the stretched out green arm moments before it's blade-like claws buried themselves in his shoulder. With a shreik of pain he let go of his Ki blasts, one flying off to the side and another falling to the ground, both resulting in unimportant explosions. "Damn, the third fighter! I had forgotten about him... He must be with the Saiyins"

A Namekian!?When the attack came, Dashade's head instinctively went to the source where he gaped at the single Namekian, his eyes drawn to the Ki blast charging in the alien's free hand. There was no time to plan, it was obvious what the next move would be. Thinking quickly, the Arcosian warrior grabbed a hold of the stretched arm with his other hand. Time to see how far this Namekian elastic limbs stretches

He charged up the Milky Cannon in one hand before dashing into the air, keeping his grip on the arm and hopfully pulling up the Namekian with him.

The Arcosian's tactic of throwing her own ally at her was unexpected. At the speed that Pikruel was moving, she didn't have much time to react. She took the full brunt of the attack, flying down together with Nion at a supersonic crash collision to the ground. At least, that's how it would appear. But when Nion would come into contact with Pikruel, she wouldn't feel any resistance from her body. A second later, Pikruel disappeared.

A few feet away from Dashade, she reappeared, firing a standard ki blast from her outstretched hand. If successful, she would continue rocketing up to Dashade and uppercut him in the face.

"How do you like that?" she said. "I call it the Fake-Out Mirage!"

The Arcosian continued to pull the Namekian against him, growling to himself at the situation he had managed to move himself through. He was put off by how easily the warrior had simply let her friend fall just for an upper hand in the fight. "Take a load of this" Shaking his mind free of the thoughts plaguing it, Dashade continued pulling the Namekian towards him, either the Ki blast hit dead on, or he was taking someone with him.

As he'd hoped the alien's full attention was focused on finishing off his current battle as quickly as possible, too focused to become aware of the imminent danger until it was too late, Taao's gambit paid off as his attack found it's mark. The elation and victory he experienced was a fleeting one. The alien proved to be more resilient than he'd expected, giving no time for a finishing blow to be dealt he'd took hold of Taao's extended right arm just before dashing into the air, Taao's immediately understood he'd made a critical misjudgment in not going for a vital organ. The alien had begun to prepare a counter attack but Taao's paid it no mind, he already knew what he had to do to escape this situation and he did,'t hesitate for a second. This time Taao did let out a cry as he raised his left arm in a right angle above his head just for a moment before bringing it down on his bicep with enough force to lob it clean off. Unlike most creatures, loosing an arm or leg was hardly a hindrance to a nimekian warrior.

With the threat removed Taao immediately dashed backward putting even more distance between him and the enemy to avoid any counter blast the alien probably hoped to trap him in. It's only victim would be his already severed arm. He looked up just in time to see one of the women appear near to the alien, and using a ki blast propelled herself vertically, right for the alien. He marveled at their raw combat ability, Taao fully expected they would both be out for a while, but here she'd already recovered and launched a counter attack which was to her credit quite unorthodox. Weather or not her second attack proved more fruitful than the last Taao hoped she would keep his attention long enough for him to gather the energy he needed to regenerate his right arm and get back in the fight.

Nion had expected to land on her partner when she slammed into the other's body, what she did not expect was to go right through what had in fact just been an after image. This did not bode well for the warrior, and before she had the chance to yell out in frustration her head collided with the groundwith a loud thump.I'm going to kill that Lizard bastard... When I can use my legs again...

In her downfall Nion was able to look up from her position, her mouth spitting out pieces of the ground that invaded her mouth, allowing her to witness the Namekian Warrior get Dashade in the shoulder. Before ripping off his own arm. "WHAT IS WRONG WITH EVERYBODY ON THIS PLANET!?"

The sudden loss of weight from the Namekian must have affected the Arcosian's aim, because Pikruel was able to circumvent it with a minor shift in her flight course. She decided against punching her target directly in the head. Because she didn't know how much punishment he could take, the blow could be potentially fatal. She instead aimed for the Arcosian's core, using stored energy in her fist to give her attack extra power.

"Leave this planet alone!"

The aliens deceleration of heroic intent was a quite a surprise but not one that came unwelcome, in fact it was a relief to hear those words and how the alien truly believed that the cause he and his men fought for was just, even if they where mislead. To Taao that that his enemies had honer, they all valued each other's lives as much as any warrior who would fight beside each other would. In that very insect they became more than just grunts in the enemies army, yet even so he would do what he must to protect this planet from another Tyrant's war, even if it meant killing good men. But maybe, maybe they didn't have to fight? They're own commander had revealed weakness to them with his words, a weakness they could exploit with violence, sure they could ransom the lives of all the soldiers but there was an even simpler solution, talking. Perhaps Taao could bargain for the peace and freedom of the maintains, or at least for a end of hostilities for now It was possible, it had to be, he hoped it could be for the sake of the meltains.

His hopes where quickly dashed as a pile of rubble transformed into a woman who'd clearly not had her fill of fighting. To his lament the one he perceived to be more than a little high on battle with no intentions of coming down soon. He admired to woman's fighting spirit, and wonderful complexion, but he wished she would have stayed down a little longer

"I can take you all on with one arm tied behind my back... " She boasted to the remaining soldiers proudly, and while he could tell by their beaten down expression that most of them knew they where completely outmatched which was a relief. However there where plenty among them who their unneeded fighting spirit on their faces and who knew well before they actually charged forward that it was time. The soldiers charged, and not just in the blue woman's direction but some where headed for him as well, a good 50/50 of a hundred or so fighters. He too felt as though he could take them on with just one arm but he wasn't about to take that chance.

" AHHHHHHHH! " Taao roared as his power level would suddenly begin to spike. He focused his energies within him on the task of regenerating damaged cells in a similar manner as when he healed the beaten up meltain boy, only this time it was his own body he was working with which made it much easier. In no time at all another arm slick with greenish-yellow slime was born in place of the stump attached to his right shoulder, which gave both groups of men pause long enough for Taao to remove his cloak and prepare to fight.

"Crush them! " one of the more burly soldiers with a red scouter called out to his comrades. " Look how Dashade fights for to protect US! Are we mice or are we men, Shall we fail Lord Heeta here?! " All the men who'd initially stepped forward to fight answered with a resounding NO, even a few of those who'd formally accepted defeat chose to step out with strengthened resolve

"FOR LORD HEETA!" The cries of determination from the many soldiers threatened to cross the planet, even in the middle of his own fight Dashide could hear the battle cries loud and clear. Their confidence and willpower astounded him, even against odds that were demonstrated to be impossible, they were prepared to fight for their cause. The Arcosian couldn't help but smirk. Lord Heeta could ask for no finer followers While he didn't want any casualties, he would not forbid these men from fighting for their Lord, he could only hope that he wins his current battle and is able to aid in theirs.

His scouter COM was still on for the moment and with a quick glance to the remaining opponents he attempted a few pieces of advice towards his comrades. "Do not underestimate your enemy, men. The green one is a Namekian, a race known for their healing abilities and, as you can see, self-regeneration. I suggest attacking the heavily wounded warrior first before the Namekian has a chance to make her an even bigger threat. Fight with vigour, for Lord Heeta!"

The Saiyin in front of him seemed to have the same distaste for any more killing as him, but as her partner has already proved. A peace would be improbable.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The battle cries of many Soldiers filled the battleground, some charging towards the suggested blue target, while others sought to hold off the healer. The name of their Lord left the mouths of many, their spirits rising as they began their assault yet again.

The Saiyin woman rose from the groundwith a slow grow rising in the back of her throat, her eyes swept over the battlefield at the opponents that charged before her, her aching muscles tensing up. If Pikruel would hog the lizard Nion would just have to settle for these weaklings. Maybe they would at least put up a fight together.

A quick glance up had her staring at the Namekian that dis-cloaked, preparing for the upcomming battle; the thought of a Namekian fighting made Nion chuckle. "I'd say its best if you leave while you can, Namekian. This is a Saiyin's fight, no place for a paccifist"

Taao looked down at the blue woman and smirked at what he now knew to be a saiyan warrior. He was sure he'd heard of their kind before, a warrior race bred only for battle who only knew only war for war's sake. Though it was obvious their love for prowess in battle was no myth, they where clearly not the monsters his elders made them out to be.

He smirked down at the blue warrior, for the first time since the fight began that he felt eager to show his abilities. He enjoyed being underestimated " Just watch saiyan, you're not the only ones who can fight."

Taao took a fighting stance as a mass of soldiers surrounded the two of them, his cocky smiled dropped into a look of steel resolve as the enemies cut the two off from each other knowing full well that the two of them together would make quick work of the bunch. He suspected this is how it would end up anyways, the saiyan clearly had no intentions of allying with the likes of him. From his flank one of the soldiers rushed him from his blind spot with a right hook meant to knock Taao out, but the nameks senses were too sharp to fall so easily. The soldier came at him from his right shoulder so he brought up his left palm in time to catch the fist before it could connect with his temple, and wasting no time he unleashed a heavy ki blast that exploded from his right hand into the warriors abdomen where it continue until it burned right through and out the warrior's back. An expression of shock and agony froze on the warriors as he was released to drop to the ground.

Nion smirked again as the Namekian spoke, shaking her head as she charged the soldier's comming to attack her, slamming her fist into one's stomach before raising her arm and brought her elbow crasing down on the man's head. Three more rushed towards their fallen comrad, to which she simply raised her hands ''Crippling Assault!"

Without hesitation spear shaped green Ki blasts began to shoot out of her palms in rapid repitition, most of the blasts colliding with some more vital areas of her enmies's bodies. When they were down and heaving in the air she appeared just beside them, reachign down and taking one's leg in her hand and swinging him around in a small spin of apeed; before letting go of him and sending the man hurling into his friends.

They were all sent to the ground with the throw, but Nion allowed them one little present; before they hit the ground the Sayin let loose a large and powerful Ki blast to accompany their broken bodies. This resulted in a huge explosion. "Sure, stay.But don't come crying to me when you're a bloated corpse, Namekian" It was more of a challenge then an insult.

Another soldier rushed him directly and Taao made quick work of him by sending first a weak ki blast to his face which was blocked by the enemies cross guard, but by the time the ki blast made contact with the soldier's block Taao was on him with both fist together raised above his head and like a hammer he brought it down on his head, splitting the soldiers skull at the top and sending him crashing to the ground. As that soldier sailed to the ground he held his hands above him again, a purple ball of plasma formed in the space between his hands and grew to the size of a globe before he fired it vertically where it would continue just a couple meters before breaking apart into smaller blast that would rain down on the enemies surrounding him. Those that where hit exploded in a cloud of purple and black and dropped to the ground, bodies smoking. This technique was called Hellzone Grenade and he felt the stamina it took to launch the blast drain from his body the instant it fired, but he wasn't close to being done.

Taao unleashed a viscous elbow to strike the gut of another soldier who attempted to lock him in a grapple from behind, but Taao's blow landed before he could lock a grip on his arms. The soldier held his gut with both hands as all the oxygen was suddenly forced out of his lungs and Taao's immediately followed up by turning and chopping at the base of the soldiers neck with all the strength in his right arm which sent the man flying.

Then several soldiers attempted to rush him from four directions thinking they would use their numbers against him, but he just waited until the last possible moment before he darted up vertically leaving the soldiers to collide head first with each other and holdings his palms out in front of him, side by side with the bottoms of his palms touching and fingers extended outward like a blooming flower bud. " Explosive...WAVE! " Taao shouted and a yellow flash proceeded a violent ki wave that exploded outward and consumed the four warriors in light and pain.

Just as Taao was preparing to unleash an even greater energy wave on on another small cluster of enemies, which would have brought him close to his limit, but the appearance of a massive power on the battlefield. When it arrived all the soldiers stopped and looked up, then back to him with wicked grins as the lowered their guards, laughing. One of the soldiers in the cluster he was gunning for, a purple muscular alien with a patch of white hair on his otherwise bald head. " Looks like your luck's run out green man, you think you're so tough but now your all dead. "

Taao looked up just in time to see a helmeted man in a red suit aim a weapon of some kind right at them and he immediately understood their lives where in danger. The fiend pulled the trigger and unleashed a blast with massive amounts of energy straight for Nion and though he where not the direct target he was still within the blast radius, as well as the soldiers around him. It was obvious no one was expecting their commander to fire so indiscriminately, Nion dodged the blast of course but the soldiers where not so fortunate as most of them was consumed in a blast that left a massive crater. Taao himself had broke off from the soldiers and dashed away in the opposite direction of the blue saiyan leaving the fighters whom he fought to be thrown about like rag dogs by the resulting explosion, Taao had gotten far enough away that the immediate blast did not effect him, but as he continued to run the shockwave caught up and threw him to the ground with force, the collision with the ground knocked all the wind out of his lungs but he was otherwise fine.

He turned over and sat up on his elbows to survey the damage done to the battlefield and was horrified to see that the enemy had murdered almost half the remaining troops out of cold blood, just to strike at them, and now the ones who weren't killed instantly lay sprawled on the battlefield, scorched and broken by the flying dabris Just like that the battle was over. Taao felt utter revulsion for the green skinned alien. Unlike his comrades it was clear to see that this one had no honer, this so-called elite, it was obvious he looked down on them and his own subordinates by the way he looked down on them even as he slaughtered his own, Taoo spit at the ground in disgust. Every cell in his body cried out for him take charge and engage the enemy while his guard was down, but he saw no openings, and something told him that if he tried to take this enemy alone, he'd be killed.

Those remaining of Heeta's men who weren't dead or seriously injured pulled back to avoid being caught in another blast. There were very few of them left, and now that Holly has stepped in himself, they knew that they were no longer needed. The new foe and his earth shattering attack inspired Pikruel's second wind. She slowly lifted herself off of the ground.

"Nion. My name's Pikruel. This new guy may be trouble. We'll definitely have to work together if we're even going to stand a chance. To be honest, I don't know if we can beat him. That one attack did so much damage, and I get the feeling he's holding back.

Pikruel then turned her attention to their unexpected ally. "Hey! Green man! You're on our side, right? Come on! Let's do this together!"

Holly watched as Nion kicked Dashade far away, apparently unphased by the loss of his loyal warrior. "We really must raise our standards. This is getting ridiculous. Oh, well. That's why Heeta keeps people like me around."

The green skinned alien shed his metallic red armor. His chest was bare, but he wore maroon colored pants underneath. He waited from his place in the sky for his enemies to make their move. "Come at me, you fools... Show me all your best moves, and I'll show you mine."

Taao heard the other saiyan but it was hard to take his attention off the enemy, this man, he was so relaxed and confident in the face of them even though they'd beaten down their army nearly to submission. Taao shook off the momentary shock and made his way over to the saiyans with a single leap, making sure to position himself behind the two of them as he would waste no time in gathering his energies, pooling all his remaining strength to bring to bear against their new, strong enemy, after this he would have nothing left to hold back. He squatted slightly with his legs spread at shoulder length and his arms tucked at his sides as he powered up to the max, to onlookers his green skin would appear to glow as an aura of a deep violet energy surrounded his body like a thin membrane just above his skin, the air around him crackled with energy as dust and debris where blown away from his immediate surrounding. Veins in his arms, legs, and skull became prominent as blood pumped through them at an extreme rate. Taoo stood tall when the power up was complete, his muscles bulged, puffed and grew as they where infused with all the energy Taao could bring to bear. He certainly felt stronger, but deep inside he was aware that there was more, he just couldn't reach it as he was.

" Yeah, let's do this. " was the reply that came only after he'd powered up. He could see the smirk forming on the commander's face, he was obviously surprised but not impressed, as if things merely became a little more interesting but no less dangerous than before. " Show me your best moves " the villian challenged, and Taao was going to do just that. Knowing that even in his current state if he got to close, he could be defeated rather handily if he took one of those blast, he was already thinking back on his attack against the arcosian warrior, thinking that if he just goes for the heart the first time and the fight could be over in an instant, he just needed an attack that could pierce his enemies heart before they even realize their in danger. Using his claws was one method, but against this man without the element of surprise he'd end up dead for sure if he tried it. A beam attack, it was the only way, he'd have to overcome his inability to focus a blast down to a beam, right here, right now. If he could achieve that do that then he had no doubts he'd be able to hit his target, even if it was moving. All he had to do was teach himself a new technique in the heat of battle, no big deal.

"Yeah," Pikruel replied to Nion. "We're partners."

At the Namekian's declaration of readiness, Pikruel nodded and rose up to meet Holly. She waited for the others to gather around the enemy before starting the fight. Holly didn't seem at all concerned, which made Pikruel really worried. Is this guy underestimating them, or is he really that strong? She looked into his eyes, and it felt like he was inside of her head, invading her mind. Pikruel felt like she needed to act and act now, so she turned her body to the side and put her hands together, charging the purple energy for her Galick Gun attack. What Holly did next made her heart drop. He made the exact same pose and started charging up his own Galick Gun.

"What!?"

Holly smirked as he continued to charge up the attack.

As the two acended and launched their attacks Taao remained grounded, just as before he would let the saiyan launch the frontal assault while he prepared his own attack, though he wasn't completely sure it could succeed or not. Placing two fingers to his forhead, Taao closed his eyes and tried to visualize what he wanted first, it has to been seem in the mind's eye first before a new technique could come to life. In his mind he visualized a huge ball of fire at the tips of his gingers which represented the amounts of energy it took do significant damage to the enemy. He imagine the ball of fire growing brighter and more intense while at the same time compressing and focusing to a single point, which represented building and focusing his ki at the tips of his two fingers. The more the ball of flame condensed to a point of light in his mind, outwardly anyone watching him would see his fingers would begging to emmit a pale yellow glow. His comrade would have to hold off the green warrior until he got it right.

Energy popped and crackled at the tips of his fingers and his eyes where focused on their enemy closely for an opening, he didn't have any margin of error so he couldn't risk making a move to save his allies from pain, fortunately they had each other. Instead of dodging and choosing the path of least resistance she put herself at risk by choosing to deflect the ki wave with a mighty blow, redirecting it to collide with their enemie's counterattack simultaneously saving her partner and rushing to her side to unleash a ki wave of her own which became the only thing saving the two of them from taking the blast directly. It was a risky move, but Taao understood. The blue saiyan was no doubt aware of his preference of ambush tactics over direct attack, she was no doubt placing her faith in him to take down the brute in one blow. He would have preferred to fire from a distance but he wasn't confident in the accuracy a technique he'd yet to perfect, he couldn't bear the thought of missing outright and failing his comrades.

Taao wasted no more time thinking, while keeping his eyes on the enemy he dashed forward to position himself underneath the green man then dashed up in the sky to position himself directly at his back in seconds. Extending his arm outward towards the fiends heart, or at least where he thought it should be, and fired two focused blast of ki from pointer and index finger. The blast where yellow with a purple corona, the beam coming from his pointer fired straight while the one from the index emitted a beam which spiraled around another so that even if the beam alone wasn't strong enough to pierce him outright, the second would continue to tunnel through his chest cavity at the speed of light. He was only a meter of space between the two of them, the man would have to be faster than light to dodge this, which Taao felt confident that no one was.

Holly had to admit, he was impressed by the feats of the already wounded blue skinned warrior. To redirect a blast in a U-turn wasn't an easy thing to accomplish. The combined power of Pikruel and Nion was enough to make Holly struggle a little, but when the Namekian flew up behind him, he saw an opportunity. Taao would feel the same unease feeling that Pikruel had felt moments before. The feeling of having one' inner thoughts violated. Then Holly would release his hold on his ki blast, stepping aside to allow the combined Saiyan ki blast to move without resistance straight for the Namekian.

The attack Taao released, however, did not go to complete waste. It nicked the commander's shoulder, leaving a painful hole in behind. Holly growled angrily, but quickly regained his composure. "Nice move you've got there. Did you just invent it? Too bad no one will remember you for it."

Putting his index and middle finger together at his forehead, Holly began to repeat the same technique that Taao used against him. "Now watch as I use it to kill your annoying blue friend." Pointing at Nion, Holly released the attack.

A laugh escaped the lips of the blue skinned female as she had just managed to redirect the blast, the combined strength of Pikruel made alleviated some of the pressure thrust upon her by pushing up against the brunt of beam. "That's right, feel the power of th-" Before she could even begin her cries of victory, feeling the beam of Ki start to overpower Holly's, she witnessed as the Namekian Warrior came to attack the Elite; with Holly dodging out the way in what Nion assumed was an effortless move.

"That's...just...cheating..." She tried to scream at the enemy, but no longer could sh ignore the ache of her muscles of the substantial drain from her energy. With a simple exhausted groan, Nion's body fell from the air, crashing into the ground once again. Still breathing, but unable to remain standing. "And now... I see a light..." Holly's attack came rushing towards her. "...fUCK"

Right before he unleashed his new technique he could feel something quite strange at the back of his mind, an eery tingle at the base of his skull,like a ethereal tentacle probing where it shouldn't through the recesses of his mind, then the unthinkable occurred. Taao's new attack miraculously worked exactly he had envisioned, on the first try. If the beam attack hit it's mark there was no survival, but instead of watching his enemy lurch in surprise he watch him step aside as if he foresaw the attack, taking it in the shoulder instead, and even though enemy did not dodge the attack completely he did manage to avoid a fatal wound with a move so simple movement that it flew in the face of logic. Taao's saving grace was that his technique was designed to pierce any obstacle, so when met with a force it couldn't overcome in the form of the redoubled ki blast the fiery haired so kindly left for him, it's only alternative was to destruct which caused a massive explosion of energy which would temporarily paint the whole battlefield in a violet hue. Taao threw up his hands in a desperate attempt to brace himself for the subsequent shock-wave which inevitably followed, but he only managed only to spare his face and chest from absorbing most of impact as he was sent hurling feet over head.

Holly himself took the worst of it, though unlike Taao he was able to brace himself and remain in place the shoulder which was already pierced by his attack was scorched by the explosion and would probably be useless. By the time Taao had recovered and re-oriented himself upright he caught a glimpse of frustration on the emerald carrot top's expression, but it was quickly replaced by the usual cocky grin accompanied by praises for his brand new technique.

New? How could he know to call it that? He couldn't know about my technique, unless... The truth became plain to Taao as he looked on in horror as Holly placed two fingers to his forehead, perfectly imitated his earlier stance just as with Pirukal, he'd pulled Taao's own technique from his mind to use against their ally, the blue haired saiyan. This was the second time that the enemy chose to attacking her directly rather than deal with either of them, even after causing him direct pain. It was clear who he perceived to be the biggest threat, which made it easy to do what he did next. Fortunately his technique was not one that could be used on the fly, depending on the person it took time to gather the energy first, time enough for Taao to attempt to blast Holly and throw of the attack with a super explosive wave.
