Locale: The Illustrated Islands. A vast series of very small islands, lush with nature, floating in the middle of a dimensional sea. There's islands in every direction as far as you can see, and there's infinite room to fall down or up, if needs be.

BIC:

Amid the vast expanse of the Illustrated Islands, Cairoi sat, relaxing on a small island floating quietly through the abyss. He ran his scarred left hand through the quiet brook beside him, watching the water collect around the tips of his fingers and fall back in hasty little drops. With his right hand, he softly grasped a thin long sword rested gently on the ground beside him. The hilt and handle appeared to be made of bone, and the blade of some black stone. Throughout its entire structure, green lines of light curved and darted around the figure of the sword like spidery veins.

Cairoi's once emerald green eyes were now dulled, revealing a dark forest where shadows and moss have overgrown the widest roads. His shaggy brown hair hung in thick pieces over his shallow, darkened face, though the myriad of facial scars made his stubble uneven in places. Across his bare chest and arms, a thin moss covered him like a labryinth of tribal tattoos. His legs, wrapped in loose black pants, were wrapped indian-style, exposing his bare feet, his soles darkened from his travels across the universe.

Cairoi sat up, lifting his back from the tree, and looking across the abyss to the next island. A strange light had appeared, and he felt a familiar presence in the air.

Alex stood still, eyes closed, enjoying the tropical wind as it blew over him. These islands might not last the coming battle. The oceans could freeze over. Alex ad Cairoi could both die, but the wind...it would always blow.

He wore a suit today, as he always did on the day of a battle. Were he to die, he would die looking his best. Were he to kill, his opponent deserved the respect of formality.

His skin was pale. Despite almost infinite power, unprotected, the sun could still burn his skin. His hair was red, a ginger some called him, though he had to freckles. A sword was on his belt, though covered by a scabbard, it had all the looks of a katana, a noble sword used by the Samurai of old.

"I will have you know that I bear you no ill will," Alex said. "But you have threatened my life, and like a rabid dog, you must be put down."

Cairoi waved his left hand, and every island for 100 feet leveled out and dug into each other to form one large, 600 foot wide island.

"Of course. We have no choice in the matter, do we?"

As he spoke, small rocks began to lift off the ground and circle around his sword. He pointed the blade at Alex and nodded.

"Make the first move."

Alex nodded. "Very well."

He slowly unsheathed his sword, drawing a silver blade. It seemed to be very heavily polished, almost as though it were like a mirror. It was more than that, it seemed almost like liquid, like water and metal fused together.

He held the sword in one hand, and stretched it out to the side.

It was a distraction. Alex lifted his other hand and a blue orb fired from his hand at the speed of a bullet. It looked identical to another orb Alex had fired at Cairoi in the past, with the outer layer covered in pure energy.

Alex fired four of these simultaneously, one rough five feet above Cairoi, one to his right, his left, behind him, and in front of him.

This too was a distraction. inside the outer layer was the true attack. an orb that would olnly absorb energy, stopping all kinetic motion between the molecules. From experience, Alex knew that Cairoi would attempt to absorb the orb in his scars, due to the identical appearance to the psiballs Alex had launched several times before. However, if he did so, he would be destroyed by the truly destructive core.

Once these cores were in position around Cairoi, they would explode with a radius of ten feet, still with the intense energy on the outer layer, but also with the destructive core.

Cairoi's green eyes suddenly burned a bright green when the orbs of magical energy began to charge and be created. He could see through the illusory exterior to the energy nullifiers beneath. Alex had banked on familiarity, but Cairoi had never forgotten to expect the unexpected.

Concentrating on the locations the orbs would land, he opened Etheria Gates to try and counter them. Etheria Gates are small portals to the titular dimension, which is comprised entirely of magical energy. By opening these focused floodgates, he can create small areas where magical energy will constantly be released without strain on his own stores. Understanding that Alex's orbs nullify energy, his Gates will nullify them until there is nothing but the air that once remained. When the limited null energy of Alex's orbs had been nullified, Cairoi closed his gates.

Without moving, Cairoi focused energy into his sword and subsequently the small rocks orbiting it. The rocks began to glow, and then fired at breakneck speeds at his enemy like a close shot-gun blast. As they fly, they begin to decompose into smaller chunks of rock, until there is a wall of small, magically-charged rocks that will explode upon contact with any hard substance.

As he fired these cluster bombs, Cairoi slid his foot forward and threw up the dirt around Alex in a cloud, limiting his visibility. The whole time, his shimmering bright green eyes were locked onto his enemy, ready for any eventuality.

Alex closed his eyes. He had no magical abilities, nothing magical to make his senses stronger, his reaction time shorter. He recognized that, which was why he had a silicon based implant put into his brain, which, during battle, could take over, allowing Alex to react with his psychic powers at literally the speed of light.

His robot implant took over, and Alex, master of all energy, altered the kinetic energy in the rocks, reversing their forward momentum, so that they instead charged towards Cairoi with the same speed and abilities as had been launched at Alex.

All of this was done almost instantly, faster than a man could blink. Fast enough that if the implant didn't tell him, Alex would have no idea what he just did.

Terramorphus is more than just a telekinetic bond with the elements. It is a spiritual connection, one that is explicitly connected to the user's soul. The earth becomes an extension of the body for Cairoi, and thus, it is as instinctual and intuitive as walking.

When Alex reversed the momentum of his clusters, Cairoi felt it. Understanding the danger, Cairoi focused the energy in the rocks and detonated them, creating a large explosion between the two fighters. As the explosion reached its zenith, Cairoi appeared to flow through it, the vast scars on his body glowing red. Rather than channel all of the vagrant energy into his body with his scars, he merely created a magical vaccum and funneled the explosive force into a beam, headed straight at Alex. As he did that, the island Alex stood on shook violently as Cairoi splintered it. Alex would be off balance for the beam's arrival.

Alex's conscious mind still had realized what was going on, but his implant did, He jumped into the air, at the same time calling upon the atoms in the air, creating a solid wall between him and Cairoi. The oxygen molecules burned, but Alex's will held strong. The beam was no more.

He landed perfectly on balance, and Alex looked at Cairoi. "You always seem to have control," he said. "Always concentrating on what you're doing."

He raised his sword and ran forward, stabbing towards Cairoi's torso.

Another distraction. Rocks lifted silently behind Cairoi, and just as Alex thrust, the rocks shattered and fired forward at the speed of a bullet, creating a wide field of shrapnel flying around ten feet of Cairoi.

Alex still kept firm control over the shrapnel, so that if any flew towards him, it would stop inches before touching him.

When Alex stabbed forward, Cairoi instinctively jumped backwards, out of range of the sword. When the rocks were telekinetically lifted from the ground, he felt them like a finger trailing up his back, and so acted. The rocks that would have hit Cairoi if unhindered stopped on a dime and dropped onto the ground, while the wayward rocks went where momentum would take them, shattering bark and leaves.

Alex nodded and held his sword defensively, point forward, at a fourty-five degree angle. "Such it is with any battle," he said as he began to relax his mind, giving his defense over entirely to his implant, gathering his mental energy for what was to come...

"Focus has power, but it is insignificant without other powers. Come, show me your power."

He switched his sword to a backhanded grip in his right hand, sword in front. "Let's see what you have."

Cairoi gripped tightly onto his dark sword and reentered the fray. Moving quickly, he closed the distance between them, making a horizantal slash to Alex's right side. As he did, his left hand began to shimmer with energy, preparing Cairoi for whatever Alex had in store. The test of swords had begun.

Alex held his sword in front, horizontally, still backhanded, and spinned in a full circle, stepping forward and, blocking the attack, putting Alex with his back facing Cairoi's own back, and hopefully with Cairoi's sword disoriented from the attack.

Following the momentum of his spin, Alex continued spinning, slicing towards Cairoi's back, and sliding forward so that if Cairoi simply threw his sword behind him, he would be able to power through Cairoi's attack.

This was simply swordplay to Alex's mind. A swordstyle very rarely used. Not more powerful than another style by any means, indeed, weaker than some, but it was unpredictable, going against the katas or attacks many other warriors had already learned. That's why Alex liked it, it was a surprise.

He continued to concentrate, focusing intensely on what he had in store. An attack that had power now, as it was, but with patience, would be a purely destructive force.

Cairoi's original slash was blocked back from the force of Alex's spin. However, Cairoi kept his sword in the fray, pressing it forward towards Alex again. With each spinning slash, Cairoi's sword deflected off Alex's, and Cairoi stepped back, trying to keep a limit on Alex's momentum. After doing this several times, Cairoi used the energy he had charged and powered up his slash, instantly overcoming the momentum of Alex's block. Now, while Alex was in the middle of his turn, Cairoi was slashing down at him at breakneck speeds, made possible by the energy. It was not a deathblow, but it would make a strong wound down Alex's back.

Alex couldn't see the attack, but his robotic abilities relied on more than just sight. Sound, smell, touch, these revealed what was to come. He raised his hand, and reached behind him, summoning the atoms of the air, summoning the molecules, and creating a small wall of nitrogen, redirecting Cairoi's strike by mere inches, and continued the swing. With all the force Cairoi was expending toward Alex's back, there was almost no way that he'd be able to bring his sword up in time to block Alex's strike.

Alex was still irritated. Expending the psychic energy nearly ruined his mental concentration, he had to refocus, continue to recharge.

He was ready to destroy.

As soon as Cairoi felt the subtle push of the nitrogen wall, he knew he would need to abandon the offensive if he wanted to survive. Cairoi used the force from his sword as a propelling force, dropping his sword to jump backwards. He narrowly avoided the slash to the neck, but his chin is nicked and begins to bleed. When he lands, the moss on his body begins to spread over his neck, covering the wound. As this happened, Cairoi's sword ended its slash on its own and continued with a stab without him, propelled by terrakinesis. While the blade continued the sword fight, Cairoi lifted his hands and his eyes began to glow.

Alex's eyebrow lifted slightly as the sword stabbed towards him on its own. A sword handled by its owner would be easily blocked by a stab, due to the outstretching of a man's arm, but for a sword that was floating on its own, Alex didn't want to risk it.

He spun quickly, out of the sword's reach, and slammed his own blade against it, hopefully at least knocking it out of the air.

At the same time as Alex slapped the sword, he released his true attack.

The brain is powered by energy, powered by electricity. Electrons, neutrons, protons, all moving from atom to atom, molecule to molecule, just like a computer, except organic. Alex hadn't been charging an attack, he had been attempting to focus on Cairoi's brain cells.

As Alex was able to control and detect energy, just as Cairoi was able to control and detect the earth, he could sense the power in a person's brain. However, Alex was used to dealing with huge flows of energy. Concentrating on something as small as a person's brains was difficult for him, and as it was, he was only able to concentrate on a small part of Cairoi's brain, the occipital lobes, the part of the brain required for sight.

With a thought, he attempted to force the energy in that part of Cairoi's brain to reverse itself. Currents would travel the wrong way, messages could not be sent or recived, and with any luck, it would tear Cairoi's occipital lobes apart without releasing any energy for Cairoi to absorb. If it was succesful, Cairoi would lose his sight. No physical functions, no ability to move, and no supernatural powers, but it would blind him, and that, Alex hoped, would be enough.

OOC: Slightly OP since it's a direct attack but I'll allow it. It makes things interesting.

BIC: It came slowly. Cairoi's blade stayed in place, resisting the block. As Cairoi began charging energy for a counter, he felt his vision begin to recede. After a fleeting moment of confused panic, he felt the strange electric current responsible. The blackness soon encompassed all of his sight, but when it did, Cairoi was ready.

With a heave, Cairoi lifted a massive amount of sand from the collected islands, filling the air all around the islands with a thick fog of it. For Alex, visibility was now considerably decreased, and movement would be somewhat difficult. For Cairoi, there was now a perfect conduit to sense Alex. Every step on solid ground, every displaced particle of sand was now a guiding mechanism.

With this system now in place, Cairoi unleashed his attack. His sword, still being wielded telekinetically, splintered into several long, thin blades. One remained, maintaining the pressure on Alex's sword. As it did that, the others flew into the dust then back at Alex. One was aimed at the back of his neck, one at his calf, one at his lower back, one at his left arm, one straight at his face, and one at his left foot. The sand would obscure these to Alex's sight and thus to his implant.

As this attack was launched, Cairoi closed his blind eyes and began searching for something very special. The battle was truly heating up now.

Alex grinned, Cairoi having to hold up this much sand had to be at least slightly wearing on him, luckily Alex would release him from that burden soon enough.

He looked at his sword as the sand rose, still pressing against Cairoi's. Through the sand, his physical eyes couldn't see much, but with a thought, he diverted more of his implant's power towards hearing. It would weaken his defense, but he could take care of that himself.

It was just in time, Cairoi's blades were on all sides of him, he could hear as they shot through the sand. Every way was blocked...

Except up. The swords flew towards him, and Alex jumped into the air, releasing his hold on Cairoi's first blade, propelling himself with telekenesis. He flew up, avoidind the first blade, the second, the next, the next, the next...

"ARGH!" The final blade that had aimed at his throat sliced into the side of Alex's shoe, cutting a bloody gash into his foot. It hurt, but pain wouldn't stop him.

He landed on the ground, the swords past him, his legs injured. He grimaced, pain still in his foot, and began concentrating. He had to turn this around, and he hoped he would with his next attack.

Cairoi stood immobile, his right hand now raised straight at Alex. His washed out pupils betrayed a deep concentration, the kind that strained even he who gazed upon it. As his eyes opened, a fierce green light began to emanate. Cairoi, now without normal sight as a result of Alex's attack, was using his Hawkeyes to function as a second sight. Without regular vision, he could only see blurry lights of energy, but it was all he needed for what he was doing now.

Cairoi's terramorphic connection to the earth and its components is strongest when things are in their natural state. However, with serious concentration, Cairoi can even affect inorganic material that has been altered with. The folded steel of a finely crafted sword, the traces of water in a cup of tea, or even the intricate silicon-based implant lodged inside Alex's brain.

He heard its call while twisting his swords through the sand, and he had dropped all of his other plans to see it quelled. It was so unnatural he could not move it with force to injure or kill Alex. With all the focus and energy he had pent up, all he could do was twist and contort it until it is was essentially inoperable. The action could cause pain to Alex, but likely he would not even realize that Cairoi had just attacked his greatest defense, and very likely crippled it for the rest of their encounter.

A battle of wills. Alex himself had very little magical ability. However, he knew enough ritual magic to give his implant an ability to detect magic, to feel its approach. Alex learned that this was a critical ability to have, due to the number of people he'd fought who used magical abilities.

Like any other attack, Alex's implant sensed Cairoi's onslaught as he reached towards him. He reacted quickly, Cairoi had power over the earth, but Alex had power over energy. To twist or distort Alex's implant, Cairoi would need to exert kinetic energy, however little. Fortunately, Alex had the entire layout of the chip in his mind, and so he exerted his own telekinetic abilities to hold the important parts of the implant still, to stop their movement. Hold them still without crushing. Alex exerted the energy he'd been hoping to reserve for his next attack into this, holding it still, holding it strong.

Cairoi, expending energy holding the sand, and using his eagle eye, could not hope to beat Alex's defense as he was. It would be like arm wrestling with one arm, while pressing weights with the other.

It still irritated Alex. As long as he had to exert energy with Cairoi's attack, he could do little more than basic defensive abilities. Cairoi would have to stop before Alex could do anything more impressive than some of his very basic abilities.
