"Did you say Knights? Knights in dragon territory must mean...." Ban began until he was cut off by a spear landing in the ground near him. "Dragon Knights." Rex finished. Knights arrived some with wings others on foot, their exposed skin was scaly and the color of those scales varied from one to another. "They came from that direction so after we break through that is the way we head." Raikou said as charged the knights herding them back with six lightning slash projections forming a wall of slicing and shocking for that caught several of the dragon knights immediately. Rex joined in with swing with Excalibur Ascalon cleaving through 4 knights that had surrounded him and then faking out three more with fading dragon before finishing them off.
Lectro followed Raikou, rapidly throwing paralyzing needles. Dragon knights fell instantly as Lectro and raikou ran through them. Lectro saw Alisa standing off in the distance, "Raikou, do you see her. She's trying to bait me, should we go or should we ignore her trap?" Lectro asked.

"I would think the answer to that one is obvious." Raikou said as Rex and Ban flew overhead taking out the airborn dragon knights. "She has lost it man, don't fall for any of her tricks, if you take off over there then we can't help you. We have to remain on our journey to free Hokkaido from the dragons, we can't let personal feelings bring an end to that." Raikou explained.
"Understood!" Lectro said as he finished off the last dragon knight in his way. Lectro eventually ran into a small town, "hmm, where are we now?" he questioned. A little boy ran over to Lectro, "did you kill the evil dragon sir?" the boy asked. Lectro put his hand on the boys head, "yea we did what we could do to the best of our ability" Lectro explained before seeing Alisa off in the distance again. "One day she'll be right behind me," Lectro said to himself.
Ban and Rex swooped down to sweep Lectro and Raikou out of sight. As soon as they did dragonkin soldiers came marching through on one of their rounds. One of them swatted the kid aside with the shaft of a lance, Ban tightened his grip on Lectro in case Lectro would try to burst out at them. They had been fighting since they got here they needed stealth and information right now. They needed to blend in get transport and find dragons in their ranks unhappy with their leader. All of which would become harder if they fought every enemy they came across.
Lectro looked at Ban, where are we going. What's your plan for this?" he asked. Lectro looked down at the little boy from before to see him running away crying. Alisa appeared in the distance, she grabbed the little boy and vanished with him in her arms.
“We need to blend in and find a tavern or something. We need information most of all if we’re going to be real pain in their under their scales. We must first disguise ourselves, fortunately I got that covered.” Ban said as he let go of Lectro and pulled four cloaks from his bag he handed one to each of the others and then threw one on. He walked deeper into the alley and stopped at the other side peering to see if there was a tavern or something in sight.
He spotted one and motioned with his hands for the others to follow. He waited for the dragonkin soldiers to pass by then walked across the street and into the tavern. He may quickly for a table in one of the darker corners with a wider view of the tavern.
Lectro wast still fitting into his cloak when he heard Alisa's voice right behind him. "Come here Lectro, have you forgotten about what we had? You can have it all if you join me once more," Alisa said. Lectro did not even turn to look at her face, "I don't care about that, I know this is a trap. You will not stop me from destroying these dragons, even if I never see you again I will complete my mission," Lectro said as he continued walking. Lectro heard soldiers up ahead, he noticed Ban moving up ahead. Lectro slowly followed Ban's lead, the soldiers continued walking without even noticing Lectro.
"Okay, Raikou and Lectro you two hold the table and keep an ear out in this section. Rex and I will be about this bar collecting information that we can put to good use." Ban explained before getting up and moving to the center bar counter of the tavern followed by Rex. This left Raikou and Lectro. "I am guessing you wanted to just try and charge through every obstacle?" Raikou asked Lectro.
At the bar counter Ban ordered a simple non alcoholic drink, a sign he wasn't here to simply get drunk. As the bartender came over and poured his drink he inquired. "So what's the situation in this town?" The bartender a slender dark haired female answered. "Yeah well, the dragons have occupied our town recently. They don't actually do much except collect a resource tax and ship those resources off to some mountain a dragon's nest I guess." she replied. "Though they have also taken a great deal of our heavy duty chains and large bolts. Like they are holding down something big." Ban took an interests in this and asked. "Where do you think they took the chains?"
The bartender replied "Word is the chains weren't in their resource shipment so somewhere close then. I'd down at the quarry east of here." Ban nodded and left a little gold on the counter for the bartender. He and Rex then left the counter. He turned to Rex. Go have a look around outside and see if you can find us some rides." Rex nodded and left the tavern.
Lectro looked at at Raikou with pure determination in his eyes. "You're damn right I will. I will take down these dragons and then I'll deal with Alisa and her new brother. I'm sure you plan to take things slowly as usual right Raikou," Lectro laughed. Lectro looked over to the bartender, he stared at her until she noticed and winked at him. Moments later Alisa was standing right behind the bartender. "Hey, Raikou, you can see her right? I can't be going crazy here, she's been pooping up everywhere," Lectro whispered to Raikou.
"Yeah but one thing the larger dragons and Alisa's new brother would likely tear you pieces. We can't try to speed through everything here, not this time around. The enemy we face is the larger force and better quality force, so they hold both advantages over us." Raikou said as Lectro eyed the bartender. Raikou noticed Alisa appeared and asked "Is there something of hers you wre carrying with you or something she may have planted on you? There is no way she just knows where we are, there must be some sort of a homing beacon."
Ban arrived right then. "What's this about a homing beacon?"
Lectro looked at Ban for a split second before looking away, "come on Ban, don't tell me you haven't noticed Alisa standing over there next to the bartender. She's following us, but she isn't attacking. We only want to know how she's tracking us. Should we go attack her guys?" Lectro asked. Alisa grabbed the bartender and vanished with her, Lectro jumped up and ran over to the site instantly.
"Thought I smelled something rotten." Ban replied. He turnd around as Alisa kidnapped the bartender and disappeared. "Damn she is worse than a wraith dragon, why did she do that?" Ban said. Then dragonkin soldiers bursted into the tavern weapons barred at Raikou, Ban, and Lectro. Ban summoned his vessel and produce the sword from it. "Time to go guys." Ban said. "Out the back, Rex must have the rides ready."
Lectro threw paralysis needles at the soldiers, paralyzing most of them while he ran outside. Lectro looked at Ban to figure out what the current plan was. "I'll follow your lead Ban, just give the order and I'm all ears," Lectro yelled. People outside were running and screaming with fear, soldiers were arresting random people that they caught.
Ban and Raikou followed, the trim eventually encountered Rex who arrived on four stolen dark colored raptor like dragons. "Quick mount the dragons and lets go." Ban said? He and Raikou leapt onto the dragons. Ban then pulled to head of the grouo and said "Follow me." Once they had broken away from their pursuers line of sight the dragons cloaked themselves as well as their riders. "Speak of the devil, wraith dragons." Ban commented. He led the group in the direction the bartender had told them to go.
15 minutes of riding later, the group found themselves pulling up to a set of rocky hills that surrounded a crater. The wraith dragons still had the group cloaked so they could get in close no problem. Ban gazed over the edge to see a ton of heavy and large chains that seemed magically spelled, bound by them was a large red dragon who roared in defiance every now and then one named. "SYN MAINYU!" It would roared and then raged around it's prison.
Ban scanned the area and looked at where the chains were bolted, seeing them bolted to the rock by glowing bolts that seemed to resonate which each others. "There must be something maintaining the energy to its bonds find and destroy it." Ban ordered as he slipped into the pit on his wraith dragon.
Lectro jumped up to observe his surroundings, he noticed a red glow shotly off in the distance. "I think I found the source guys, I'll go stop it quickly," Lectro said as he ran off. Lectro ran quickly over to the red area, passing Alisa countless times. Lectro arrived at a tent that had a bright red glow, inside there were four soldiers guarding four red glowing orbs. "I'm gunna need to grab those orbs and destroy them," Lectro laughed.
The soldiers said "Now." One of the soldiers removed one of the orb while the other soldiers slammed the orbs together which unleash a destructive beam of red energy at Lectro.
Ban went down in the pit to talk to the bound dragon. "Hey, why are you chained up" Ban asked the dragon quietly. The dragon unable to see the cloaked Ban on Wraith dragon sniffed its nose to get Ban's scent, and then replied. "Syn Mainyu has done this to me. He seeks to disgrace me and strip me of my honor by not stripping me of my life in battle. Dragons are a prideful race and that's where qe are hit hardest. If I ever escape I shall reclaim my lost honor." the dragon said more so to himself than Ban. "We are here to take him out as well, if you agree to help us we will set you free." Ban said. The dragon replied "As long as I am going against Syn Mainyu then I shall aid you. Free me invisible one." Ban watched the chains and the second the power in them fluctuated the threw his sword at the chains shattering one and allowing the dragon to unravel the chains and free itself.
Lectro just barely dodged the beam that flew by him, he ran at cluster of orbs and snatched the three orbs. Lectro looked at the final orb, which somehow ended up in Alisa's hand. "Where did you come from," Lectro questioned. Alisa vanished with the orb, her voice could be heard projecting from above. "Join me and you can have this orb, trust me Lectro, you are going to need it," Alisa said. Lectro began to run back over to his group with the three orbs wrapped inside his arms.
Ban became visible as Raikou and Rex then Lectro joined him. The freed dragon unleashed a barrage of fireballs around the rocks thag his chains were bound, likely to eliminate guards in the area before landing down in front of the group. "Call me, Valok. I smell two humans and two dragonhearted. What is it you require of me?" the dragon said. It was alteast 30 times the size of Ban but he spoke with confidence to the dragon. "I am Ban, my companions are Rex, Raikou, and Lectro. We need you to aid us in our campaign to free this half of Hokkaido. Are there any more of you, dragons who went against Syn and are now imprisoned?" Ban replied.
Valok exhaled and said "I am sure you have witnessed the dragon nest near here, well quite a distance away from it are more dragons bound by dragon slayer energy in a plain. They are my bretheren and I assume your first step would be to annhilate the dragon's nests near the borders. Free them and you can leave that to us. But their jailer is a dragon slayer knight, who as a dragon slayer attritbute imbued sword and cast dragon slayer magic. He is up to the two humans to defeat. The two dragonhearted you have the daunting task of taking out his dragon familiar. I will focus on keeping other dragons from interfering with your battles."
"Sounds like a plan." Ban replied. He then looked at Lectro with orbs in his arms. He said "Those must be crystalized dragon slayer energy orbs. I will be needing those since I and Rex will be facing the dragon."
Lectro looked at ban with disappointment before handing over the three orbs, "Alisa took the fourth orb, and she said we need it for something," Lectro sighed.
Alisa walked down a long hall with blood stained walls. Alisa stopped and drew her blade, 'Show yourself or die now," Alisa said. A little boy with pure white hair and sharp claws appeared in front of Alisa. "I taught you better Jirou, your form and stealth skills need work. Keep working, maybe I'll let you come with me if you fix your battle flaws. You have to be ready to kill, that mean come at me with full rage and aggression," Alisa explained. Jirou hung his head in shame, "but I trained all night just to go out with you, I guess I'll never be as strong as big brother Syn," Jirou sighed. Alisa put her hand on Jirou's head, "you can come with me tomorrow, you should be able to handle Lectro's group alone," Alisa said. Jirou gleamed with joy as wings appeared on his back, he flew down the long hall while singing, "I get kill lectro's group, I get to kill Lectro's group!"
