A usually peaceful island, Applenine has recently been struggling with criminals landing and making themselves comfortable, while stealing and plundering whatever they can get their hands on.

# Applenine was a quiet island, a quiet island where the snow is permanent, a thick mass that often prevented people to walk in the streets. On this island, which was overlooked by mountains, stood a small village. A small village full of hardworking people that earn most of their money with the tourism. People were always going in and out of the island so money was always flowing. Why were they coming ? It was because of the huge rocks that were scattered everywhere on the island and that looked exactly like apples. Scientist never knew why it happened only on this particular island. All we knew was that at the beginning they were only one. The main Apple that was as big as a mountain. From it sprouted the others and here they were. Some said it was a blessing from god. But one day everything changed.

With their island being reputed for it’s tourism, It attracted bad person. Yes, the villagers weren’t stupid. They hired protection, a reputed security agency that could defend them from bandits, why didn’t asked for the World Government’s help ? They were just too greedy. They didn’t want the WG to take half of their earnings. For a time the guards did their job but one day came crashing a boat with men that changed everything. Three scoundrels that barely survived an incident they caused days ago that gave each of them a bounty above the 200M. Despite their appearances, they had money so the villagers let them crash at the inn. Why would they be scared, they had the armed guards.

It took the pirates 1 week to understand that they couldn’t leave the island and that they could crash here for all their life while profiting of the civilians. First they took control by killing the mercenaries. What could some guards do when facing pirates like them three ? It was a massacre and with their protection now gone, villagers had nothing to do but to surrenders and pay what the pirates asked. A yearly fee for each inhabitants.

Who were they ? The first one was Abdullah. A tall white bald guy with a pointy head and two ponytails. Three verticals scars were on his forehead for a previous mission when he was still a bounty hunter. On his nose, a pair of rectangular glasses. He wore black overalls and had some type of armor on his left arm. On his back were always two tridents.

The second one was Jeet, Abdullah’s partner in crime. He wore a turban, was more dark skinned and had a creepy smile. From time to time, his tongue would get out enhancing the weird vibes. He had a squared jaw covered with a little beard. He wears a yellow jellabah with black stripes.

The third one was the smartest of the lot. He was the one that made the plan to take the city. Like the others, he was tall. He had little eyes. You could recognize him from a mile with the big cactus like sombrero he had on his head. He had a mouth guard and an armor piece on his right hand.

With the strength of the partners and the brain of the cactus, who could stop this triumvirate ? #

Days had gone by since the troublemakers armed of guns left Sabaody. On their way there, X had the chance to grab the Newspaper and saw the shocking news. The BYP bounties went up. X was overjoyed by the numbers on his head, but it didn't last long after seeing the one on the Silver Pirate Captain.
"That's a monstrous bounty!" Screamed angrily the pirate as he threw the newspaper on the floor.
"A measly 73 and I was happy? I'm still too weak I guess." Added X hand on his chin, and his head leaning on one side thinking about the matter.
" It's not really that in my opinion." Calmly said Angelo from his corner
"Yeah, you just didn't cause enough trouble for them to put a bigger number." added his brother with a smile.
"I should have killed everyone on Banaro?" Questioned X.
"How about attacking them directly to make it even better?" Muttered Angelo
"Can we do that?" Shockingly asked his brother Marcello
"Now that's interesting." Suddenly from his corner added Bloody Harvey with a grin on his face so evil that it enticed everyone on the boat.
"That's all good, but we're out of money and we need to stop by somewhere first for a refill." Said X while clapping twice.
" I got the perfect place for that. Also if we manage to get the control of that island the crew of the BYP might get closer to the fame you dreamed of, Capo." Added Angelo.
"Applenine?" Asked Marcello.
"Yeah, that island is just a gold mine without proper protection."
"But Angelo, remember it's under some pirate rule."
"We take them out. No brainer."
" Alright let's do it then. I need to get something for Weapon. That's going to be his gift. Gungungun" cut X

With that the five men were now heading towards the island.

@Emperor Cross

I'm going to edit it soon. I'm using my phone now.

# Things were going smoothly in the village. Like always, Abdullah and Jeet were in the saloon drinking and trying to hit on the barman. A woman too scared to tell both of them they were not her type. It was true that they came here every morning and night but they were still the pirates that took control of their island. Taking more than half of their profit with their yearly fee.

At first, when she saw their love for drinking, she tried to get them drunk and call the others to kill them but the pirates had abnormal resistance to alcohol. Secondly, with their habit to come to the bar at precise hours in the day made them more easier for the villagers to try something but one more time, something was in their way : The cactus guy. He was always suspiciously looking at everything. Everyday he would do a round and if something was wrong, he will make you know by shooting with his gun.

He was always the one who contacted the two other to tell them to stop drinking and get their ass back up to their headquarters which were a little atypical. They were living in one of the apple that fell, the old town hall. An apple that stood in the middle of the town which permitted or guys to move rather quickly in every direction.#

-REWRITTEN SAGA-
(Cover Story)
ADVENTURES OF THE UNWRITTEN
-PART ONE: SOMETHING IS FALLING BUT IT AIN'T THE SKY-

Jimmy Frayzah can be seen in an unknown alleyway of an unknown town on an even more unknown island. The young red haired man is facing an old brick wall with his black cargo pants partially down, at first glance one would assume the pirate captain is simply relieving himself out of view of passing locals but the way he keeps turning around with a grin on his face and his constant giggling tell a completely different story. It's almost as if he's doing something he's proud of and wants to be discovered.

“Heh-heh-heh. If only you knew the things that were coming old friend, if only you knew.”

As he zips up his pants and walks away from the scene, the bounty poster of 'Fallen Sky', and former Vice-Admiral, Shaarib is left in clear sight on the wall and completely drenched in the urine of the former Rear-Admiral 'Mad Red'.

MIA THE PIRATE CAPTAIN?
-PART THREE: ENTER THE SIRENS-

After days of travel to go under the Red Line in their coated ship and then about just as long traveling the rough seas of the New World on the other side, Mia Black and her newly rebranded 'Sirens' had finally reached their first destination here on the second half of the Grand Line. The also newly renamed 'Toxic Kitty' had arrived in the strangely looking Applenine where the Crowned representative of the Legion believed would be the perfect place to recruit some fresh blood into her small sized crew but little did she know that trouble was lurking.

# Things were going rather smoothly for the bunch of outlaws. Ango had a smile going from one ear to the other but his partners couldn't see it because of his mouth-guard. At the end of the day, money was going to flow, nothing could make him sad. From the top of the the apple, he was looking sharply at his associates going towards the eastern part of the town. They were on their way to ask for each home, their yearly fee. Abdullah being the one to do the menacing part while Jeet would take the money. If a home couldn't pay, the rules were simple : 1. Abdullah should look around the house to see anything valuable. 2. If anything wasn't found, they would come back the next day. 3. If the Amount is not paid by then, they would take a finger for each thousand owed. It was pretty simple. Ango wasn't the type to kill, if he killed every person that wasn't paying, at the end he would get nothing. #

ADVENTURES OF THE UNWRITTEN
-PART TWO: X MARKS THE SPOT-
In an unknown bar in an unknown town on an even more unknown island, the back of the Unwritten Pirates' sniper can be seen as he throws darts at a dartboard that can't be seen at the time due to him standing in front of it. Floyd the Deadshot, who had previously been betrayed by his superiors alongside the rest of his 'CP-X' taskforce, smirks as he throws his third and final dart at the board.

Floyd: “Hah like always, I never miss. Now, let's see if the same can be said about you?”

As he walks away from the scene, the dartboard comes into view to reveal a bounty poster with three darts directly in the centre of both the board and the face on the poster. This face is that of a fellow sniper, a sniper that is currently a member of the Backyard Pirate crew, Number X.

MIA THE PIRATE CAPTAIN?
-PART FOUR: DEALINGS WITH DEVILS-
The Toxic Kitty is a ship that has gathered a storied history. For close to 4 years it sailed the seas of this world without any of the black flags it would become infamous for, then known as the Black Kitty it served as the ship a younger Mia Black as she made her way up the ranks of the Revolutionary Army who had rescued her from a life of captivity.

Alhough she held no ill will towards her rescuers, she would later leave this life behind upon coming into contact and forming an alliance with Jimmy Frayzah due to a mutual desire for vengeance against her father, the former Marine was also still in the early stages of forming his Unwritten Pirates and needed a required a new ship so it was then the Black Kitty become known as the Blank Page and flew a pirate flag for the very first time.

Despite the rocky meeting and differences in backgrounds, Mia and Jimmy remained united in their shared goals and quickly became quite the team. During this time Mia and her ship would witness the rise of the Legion of Crowns and by extension the origins of the Nero's Devil Pirates as their partners in the alliance who Jimmy's brother Kane Queen would soon join, also around this time Mia befriended another of their members Miyagi Kyouko who helped show her that not everybody was consumed by darkness and there was still hope for the world. With all of this, it seemed almost like the fates of these individuals would be intertwined forever and perhaps that is true.

Now with Jimmy and the Unwritten Pirates on their own mission and Mia's Toxic Kitty flying yet a new flag, one could argue that Nero has rightful claim to the Legion's throne. Deep down Mia knows it to be true, she's not meant to be a leader but working for him was still something she couldn't bring herself to accept after he killed her former comrade Ivankov. She knows this because it was just days ago that she had encountered the Devil Pirates upon re-entering the New World and her friend Miyagi had invited her to join them, she refused to hear out Nero's explanation as well as the offer. But now as she's about to dock in Applenine Island to recruit for her new Sirens, it isn't this that worries her. It's that she's beginning to see his side of things, that she's starting to agree with it and it scares the shit out of her because what does it say about her? Just what will Mia's decision be, will she continue blazing her own path as her own captain or look for new glory as member of the Devil Pirates? Stay tuned and find out as her adventure in Applenine Island begin.

# Things weren’t going smoothly today. Ango didn’t like unforeseen events. Today during their trip, one of the citizen tried to be a hero and Abdullah cut him down. Sometimes he wondered how could his partners be so dumbs and still be alive. Killing someone for no reason was going to create some ruckus in the town. If one tried to revolt, others will too and now he needed to find a solution. Not taking the yearly fee will be a sign of weakness. He couldn’t offer a reduction, others will come too. Today, they made him lost a huge amount of money because Ango knew one thing, at the end of the day he was going to have more blood on his hand. By trying to act like a hero, the father caused the death of his family and the villagers could be sure that they were going to die in front of everyone. How ? He didn’t now, maybe time will tell. #

THE RETURN OF JIMMY FRAYZAH
A few hours had passed by and Mia found little success in her recruitment, she was about to give up for the day and head back to her ship when suddenly she something caught her eye. A bright red ship. She wonders, could it be?

Onboard 'The Redbird', named as homage to his former ship from his time as a Marine and even reusing the figurehead from the sunken vessel, Jimmy Frayzah stands looking battletested with a vertical scar across his eye, leaving it partially closed and part of his tail had been sliced off. Also, as he and the other members of the Unwritten Pirates eagerly await the reunion with their comrades, it'd be hard to miss that he now had a short beard and his hair had grown out a little.

Despite the tired and weary look, he had a look of triumph as Faysal and his Written agents had finally been defeated. Just what happened in this 'Written War' and what lies in store for Jimmy, Mia and the rest of the Legion of Crowns now that their sworn enemies are no more? Find out as the adventures continue on Zou.

The Bastard Trio - A Symbiotic Relationship #1
Appletine Island. A winter island of snow and cottage houses, of farmers and fishermen. The most distinct geographic feature of the island is the colossal apple in its center, which dwarfs the nearby mountains. There are five smaller apples around its base, and three more around its top, near the stem, making nine in total.

An island specializing in apples. The housing, food, mountains, even infrastructure spoke of apples. “Ripe“ for the taking. And so, Pirates flooded the area, ransacking and leaving. A never-ending cycle. Loot and shoot.

The looting had gotten so bad, the citizens were scared to even leave their homes. Every distress call sent out to neighboring island and to the World Government went unanswered. Left to misery. Slowly but surely, resentment grew for those who abandoned them.

Until three came. Bounty hunters. The Bastard Trio, or so they called themselves, were three seeking looting. Yet, they fell in love with the warmth of the people’s hearts amidst the cold.

[Jeet] “None today, brother! They don’t dare invade now! This island’s treasure will continue to be ours!”
Walking from the edge of the village, from the only entrance by sea, a man seen licking his sword with a bloodthirsty smile appeared. He wore a pinstriped shirt and a dark beaded necklace. The bounty hunter, Jeet. He walked through the streets, now lively, with pride. For the first time in a long time, villagers felt safe to leave their homes. Many villagers waved at him happily. From a nearby house, sitting at its edge, another man spoke.

[Abdullah] “Yes. Quite a find. These pirates come in and we take their bounty, and the villagers love us for it! The feeling is growing mutual...”
A portly man with responded to Jeet, with that last sentence beneath his breath. He sported thin rectangular sunglasses and along with large purple trousers held up by brown suspenders and also armor over his left arm. The bounty hunter, Abdullah. In his hand, Abdullah held a small stuffed apple; a gift from children of the village, which he stared into with a smile.

The island was shown to have houses with a roof in the shape of an apple, befitting the island's name. The houses were shown to be covered in snow and the citizens were wearing winter clothing. A symbiotic relationship had helped the island, though the demand of food and riches from the Bastard Trio was siphoning off the island’s future. A burden they geared for their protectors. A delicate balance.

The Bastard Trio - A Symbiotic Relationship #2
Peace was finally achieved on Appletine Island, whether or not it was achieved through good intentions or not didn't matter for the people. They could finally leave their homes and enjoy a quiet and stress-free life. Sadly, however, that peace wouldn't last very long. For their distress call that had been sent out months ago finally reached the government.

Both the bounty hunters who ruled this land as the villagers could see a single ship approaching through the gate of their town. It was massive and would pass through the gate with not much space between their hull. At the very front of the ship, a tall and imposing figure stood, an intimidating aura exuded from this individual.

This older man was tall, easily being 3 meters if one would make a quick estimate. Dressed in a rather formal military uniform with a standard white marine coat that indicated a very high rank. A deep ocean blue coat underneath his marine one covered his upper body down to his waist. The coat neatly set into place by various white buttons through the center of his uniform. Dark trousers protected by metallic plates with heavy brown military boots finished the lower half of his outfit. Last but not least however, was the incredible massive sword on his hip that had the length of an average human but looked small compared to his size.

The figure simply continued to look towards the island, hands behind his back as he surveyed the area. A first quick look didn't give Dalinar the impression that this island was under attack. Perhaps they were held hostage by the pirates and continued to work under less that desirable circumstances.

The ship would halt in the port of this town, sailes up but not yet anchored. They'd need to escape quickly if things got out of hand far too quickly. Dalinar would glance over to one of his soldiers and gave him only a quick nod. The private and the rest of the crew knew their orders from that single gesture. Experience and respect for their commander made them work like a fully optimized machine, no questions no hicups. The men did what they were ordered.

Order. It was what Dalinar valued most in this world.

From the very front of his ship Dalinar would leap, crossing the small part of water that was between him and the island, landing on the snowy ground. His landing came with quite a crash. Ground would crack beneath his massive weight pushing up droplets of snow around him. Rising from a semi crouched position Dalinar would now fully reveal his size and overwhelming commanding aura. Speaking to the people that'd be around him.

"My name is Vice-Admiral Dalinar. Reports told me that pirates rule this land. What has happened here?" The man said with a low and booming voice. Everything about this man screamed respect with a hint of intimidation. It was easy to see how men would change their minds quickly and follow him into battle.

However, how quickly could such a change happen with people who had been forgotten for so long. And in the end had to turn to a lesser evil for aid?

A Symbiotic Relationship - A Village Scorned #2

A lone Marine vessel braved the cold sea. Sailed through the only entrance, unfettered. The path narrow, the ship barely squeezed through to the center, where the dock lay. One led by a man of stature: Vice-Admiral Dalinar.

As the ship was passing, boos and shouts were thrown at them. Half-eaten apples, trash, and other such assortments were thrown at the ship as it sailed past. Screams of dissent from the villagers.

[Villagers] “Leave! You’re not welcome here!”
[Villagers] “Leave is to rot, won’t you?! Now we don’t need or want you here!”

The jeers continued as the Vice-Admiral stepped off the ship. In front of the dock, in a wide x2 warship-sized plaza surrounded by the apples houses, dozens of villagers had come to “greet” the Marines. Upon the Vice-Admiral landing and seeing his stature, the villagers fell quiet.

The man made his proclamation, but only quiet persisted. The villagers were in fear, though scorned. Suddenly, breaking the tension, a young girl, not even 7 years old, slipped through her mother’s legs. She was the lone person who approached the Vice-Admiral. The girl stopped right in front of him and looked up. Her eyes widened in amazement.

Then, it came. With disgust, the girl spat at the Vice-Admiral feet. She missed his boots, but the disdain was clear. Suddenly, the whole village began to jeer again, finding new-found courage from the girl. She ran back to her mother’s embrace, before an elderly woman stepped forth.

Tall, well dressed, with glasses held in tow over her white hair, the statured old woman stepped to the vice-admiral. The jeers turned into murmurs, calling the woman Elder Brunoa.
[Elder Brunoa] “This movie we have seen before. Your kind comes as saviors, then leaves us to rot!”
[Elder Brunoa] “There are no Pirates here, only saviors. Kindly leave.”

Elder Brunoa did not mince words. While the villagers feared the vice-admiral, Brunoa did not. Those thick eyelids and deep wrinkles spoke of trauma, of a life long-lived.

Elsewhere, in hiding, Jeet and Abdullah watched from a roof with binoculars. They recognized the vice-admiral coat and what it meant.

[Jeet] “It’s a vice-admiral, big bro! What do we do?! Is he here for us?!”
[Abdullah] “Not sure. For now, we keep low. The villagers will protect us. When the opportunity arises, we shall strike him down unsuspectedly! Get ready!”

Back at the plaza. Elder Brunoa stood her ground. The Vice-Admiral was not just dealing with a village wounded, but a village scorned. Their hearts had turned against the WG as their call to arms fell on death ears.

The Vice-admiral not only needed to heal the town’s infrastructure but their hearts as well.

A Symbiotic Relationship - A Village Scorned #2

Dalinar merely observed with a furrowed brow as the town grew anxious around him. The man still believed that something else happened here but it was not a hostage situation. These people were neglected for far too long, that much was obvious. The shadows of doubt and fear clearly hung around these people like a noose, and they didn't want to feel its tightening grip any longer. Their saviours a pedestal so they wouldn't drown in fear any longer. It was however only a temporary solution.

The Vice-Admiral simply kept watching but without bursting out in anger, a child at this age wouldn't be forced to do such a thing. It'd only force Dalinar to equip an equally sorrowful expression. Blaming himself for arriving far too late, damn those elders at HQ! How would they establish order in this world if they'd ignore the tiny villages, they should be their backbone in terms of support!

Eventually, an elderly woman would arrive, eyes also full of disdain as the jeers calmed down a notch. It'd seem he finally got someone who'd be willing to parley with him.

" I can see that my arrival here has been less than fortunate. I'd like to apologize on behalf of the World Government itself." Dalinar said once more with his low deep voice but dialed down to a softer approach. Bowing with his head towards the woman.

" I'd like to see these saviors of yours. For more trouble will one day arrive on this island. And I'd like to inspect if these men were up to the task and if they're worthy, give them my aid." Dalinar said, moving into a grey lie. He hated this but he had to gather these people together under his banner and a bigger threat more often than not would help in that matter. Dalinar would crouch placing his hands into the snow besidehim, feeling the warmth of hospitality this place used to have.

"We hadn't forgotten you fine folk of Applenine. The reason why we took so long was logistics. Food, resources, materials for repairs and even some of my crew to be stationed here for further support if you wish to accept. And due to my tardiness, I shall pay in your name to the government for an entire year If you choose to accept. So you can recover your resources from the grim past that haunts this island. It's the least I can do to bury this sorrow that still lingers in your eyes" The man said as he rose from his crouched position.

"You see your early warnings hadn't fallen on death ears. But if we had come instantly events would've been repeated over and over again. As you yourself have said. One day pirates might arrive on this land that could be stronger than your saviours. For they have angered various threatening individuals. A station under my name here or simply the knowledge that I defend this place will deter such an event, I can promise you that." Dalinar would say exhaling as he was more a warrior than a diplomat but this was also part of the job.

"Take a moment to decide amongst your people. But as I've said before. Where are these saviours of yours, I'd like to hear what they have planned to keep this town protected in the future. "

Dalinar said as a closing statement. He really wished to see these men for he doubted that they were here with good intentions. He had revealed his own offer. A year free of marine tax but with all the benefits and more. A station nearby the island if they so chose but most importantly an information network. Should an attack on this island arrive, they'd know quicker than the vigilantes that had helped this town.

But would these saviours be able to do the same if an organised crew would attack this town? Dalinar highly doubted it.

A Symbiotic Relationship - The Blind Attack #3

The blackened hearts of the villagers were worn on Elder Brunoa’s chest. with conviction, she asked the Vice-Admiral to leave. They were already saved. Or so they believe. They would trade a symbiotic relationship for the never-ending cycle of sorrow.

The Marine was unexpected, and so were his words. Dalinar apologized with a bow. Even the elder in her years had oft not seen that from those in power. Her eyes widened when the man offered his services for a year, tax-free. The villlagers murmured to themselves. For the first time in a long time, Elder Brunoa did not know what to say.

The elder would not need to answer. The answer was chosen for her. A trio of spears flew at blurring speeds towards the Vice-Admiral, right to his back. With unnerving precision and speed, one aimed to disable his right arm by hitting his right shoulder, the same with another on his left, and the last to his lower abdomen, all from the blindside and while Dalinat was focused on the elder. Notably, should Dalinar move, the spears would hit Elder Brunoa.

[Jean Ango] “Gihaio: Spears....!”
Gihaio (literally meaning "Entertainer Arrange King"): Jean Ango aims and throws weapons such as axes, swords or sabers bare handed at his enemies with great speed and strength. This attack is strong enough to pierce a wall and hurt Chinjao.
- Knives [D Rank]
- Axes [C Rank]​
- Swords [B Rank]​
- Spear [A Rank]
- Building [S Rank]​

DPR: [(Strength) 61-80: 4. Small Building Level] + [+3 (A Rank)] + [+1 (invisible haki)] = 8. City Level

Those words came from behind Dalinar. At least thirty meters away, showing the sniper’s true skill, a large bulky man was seen on the roof of one of the apple houses. The man wore a green cactus-looking mouth guard, armor on his right arm, and sports a large sombrero with a red and yellow pattern on the rim and a green cactus on top.

The bounty and weapon hunter: Jean Ango. True to his fame, a large ball of collected weapons were held by one hand.

[Jeet] “Damn it! The fool started without us! Hurry, brother!”
[Abdullah] “Go around, Jeet! Use the villagers as cover and get closer!”
Jeet and Abdullah ran through the crowd. Not only did they use the crowd as shields, they used them to mask their approach. Jeet licked his lips, and Abdullah‘s eyes stalked Dalinar. The three saviors found their place. They would not give it up even for a vic-Admiral.

The Bastard Trio had the support of the people, stronger than the Government, or so they believed.

A Symbiotic Relationship - The Ancient Oaths #4

The people were quite stunned by Dalinar's proposal and the man could see it in their eyes. So far so good the man thought to himself. Unbeknown to the danger that loomed around him. His ship, however, was still on full alert especially the several crows nests that it held. One of them through binoculars noticed the sniper that lurked off in the far distance, the private sadly couldn't do too much else except yell out as loud as he could.

" SIR! SNIPER AT YOUR 6!" The man screamed at the top of his lungs, even at this distance it was fairly audible for Dalinar to hear.

Gloom was cast upon the man's facial expression for even with the warning he wouldn't have much time to avoid it entirely. Besides even if he did he'd put the elder at risk of being mortally wounded. It'd ruin his entire plan. "Tekkai!"

Dalinar shouted as he clenched his hands into fists and flexed his entire muscular system to peak performance, resulting in flesh that was almost made out of steel. Invisible haki also coated his entire back as a quick layer that'd soften the initial blows.

DPR: [(Durability) 81-99: 5. Town Level] + [+20 (Tekkai) + 1] = 8. Mountain Level VS 8. City level attack

Damage = DPR equal/ normal damage


In a matter of moments, the spears would hit home into the body of the vice-admiral. One after another the spears would hit his body like arrows that stuck onto their target, giving his body a slight nudge forward each time it made contact. Even with all his defences in place the man's body was punctured, metal tips digging deep into his flesh. While not mortally wounded he was wounded nonetheless. The gloom on his face turned into concern for the foolish decision these saviours had made. For no villager of this town would be able to wound him, if they could. He wouldn't be here in the first place. "I'd suggest you and the others take cover. These heroes of yours aren't looking forward to leaving this place. They've struck the world government. I cannot ignore this I'm afraid. My offer will remain viable after I deal with these fools. Should you still wish to accept."

Dalinar this time around turned his body while pulling the spears out of his body. A shame to have wounds on his back but one he was willing to bear. "Life before death..." The Vice-Admiral said as he pulled out his weapon named "Oathbringer" from its sheathe. An odd-looking weapon and nothing that resembled a sword that was normally made in this land.

While the weapon was being drawn Dalinar seemingly began to shrink slightly in size as a dark green colour began to coat his body. Scales would cover his body as his nose elongated itself. While weird spikes protruded from the back of his head all the way to his neck. Standing in his hybrid zoan form Dalinar wished to deal with these fools as quickly as possible.

"Typhoon Slash!" Dalinar shouted as he swung with his weapon horizontally, the swing almost but a flick from his wrist. Delivered so fast that nearly no arm movement could be seen. From the swing a powerful crescent moon-like projectile latched off, flying incredibly fast towards the sniper who sat at the massive apple. The green on his person, made him stand out quite a bit beside the white and orange colours. The projectile pristine in appearance was a true testament to Dalinar's skill with a blade. Should the sniper be able to dodge it'd most likely slice the apple in half, unfortunately. But Dalinar was here with resources, buildings could be repaired.

But not lives.

With mantra at the ready Dalinar stood still as he looked around, guard at high alert.
Typhoon slash: Air projectile DPR: A
DPR: [(Strength) 101-119: 7. Town Level + [+3 (A Rank)] = 10. Island Level

A Symbiotic Relationship - Convictions Clash #4

The village held with but words, until a shout broke the tension. A warning. With each step, a grunt echoed. Dalinar was stabbed in the back. Blood trickled down his coat, and Elder Brunoa’s eyes widened in shock. Her eyes traced the spears, seeing Jean Ango in the distance. Their saviors.

Dalinar assured Brunoa he would still hold his end of the bargain, but first must stand against saviors.

[Elder Brunoa] “R-r-r-right! B-b-be care- Everyone, take cover!”
Elder Brunoa caught herself before she told the vice-admiral to be careful. She looked confused, a metaphor for how the people felt: torn between their saviors and the vice-admiral’s actions. Dalinar had not won them over just yet, but he had left his imprint, particularly taking the attack for the Elder.

The vice-admiral took a new form. Scales appeared and the man grew bigger. A projectile came for the sniper, brimming with power. The burly man knew when to flee. The distance made it possible. Jean Ango jumped from the roof building to another to another, re-positioning himself. At the very least, Jean Ango did not attack right away, for he was busy dodging, preparing his next barrage.

[Abdullah] “We won’t let you take our treasure!”
[Jeet] “Yeheheheh! This is our island!”

Cackles echoed through the crowd, both in surprise to the transformation and maniac of fools rushing in. As Jean Ango dodged in the distance, a shadow overtook Dalinar. If he would look above, he’s see one of the saviors, Abdullah, using the sun to cloak his approach. The man’s axe was above him, cackling madly, using gravity and body weight to drive it towards Dalinar’s body from above. Hardening was on the axe.

At the same time, an attack came from Dalinar’s right side. Jeet drew his two swords, wind collected on the blades, and slashed at Dalinar diagonally, from outside in. Wind would surround the swords, creating a vacuum where the target would be sucked in. Hardening was on the blade.

The tandem was flawless. Jeet’s attack would suck Dalinar to the blades, presumably making him a stationary target for Abdullah’ downward attack.

[Abdullah] “Thor’s Assault!”
[Jeet] “Shinkuji Ken!”

Shinkujin Ken (“Vacuum Blade”): The user performs a stab or a slash while sucking in the air around the blade. The wind pushes the blade towards its intended target, increasing the attack’s movement speed and power considerably, essentially blurring. The opposite can be done, sucking the target to the blade.
Requirements: 51 Mastery, 41 Strength​
Destructive Potency Rank: B​
Thor’s Assault: The user jumps atop the opponent and raises their axe. Using theor body weight and gravity to aid the swing, the user brings it down with full force, flipping over the axe. The axe causes friction in the air, electrifying it momentarily, having the added effect of shocking the opponent, hence its name.
Requirements: 51 Mastery, 41 Strength​
Destructive Potency Rank: B​
DPS: 8. City Level
[4 (61-80: 4. Small Building Level)] + [+2 (B Rank)] + [+2 (hardening)]​
Both Abdullah and Jeet used high-level techniques and hardening. They had seen the man sever the apple building like butter and survive Jean Anglo’s attack - they were in fear of the man and went hard. Meanwhile, Jean Ango cocked swords in the dozens, using his observation haki to take aim.

A Symbiotic Relationship - Deliverance #4

Dalinar stood firm and tall within the confusion of escaping villagers. Oathbringer in his right hand the blade trembled within his hand, eagerly awaiting its next target. With his mantra, active Dalinar felt their intent to go for a double coordinated attack. While it wasn't exactly premonition the marine still felt their presence before they'd be able to deliver their attack. And with his newfound physical abilities, he could track them easily. The one above would go for a downwards swing using gravity and his own strength to aid him, while the one on his right would choose to impede him making sure the earlier attack would make contact with Dalinar.

Before their tandem attack could connect and the vacuum would push him off balance Dalinar would swing his weapon horizontally towards Jeet who was about to slash him diagonally with both his swords. "Way of the Storm: Eastern Wind!" The man shouted as while he swung his blade it turned jet black. The incredible force of Dalinar's weapon clashed against the twin swords of Jeet with both techniques clashing against one another. Jeet would soon find out that this very basic strike was overpowering one of his more advanced attacks, pushing him back and eventually striking past its defences and potentially wounding him. The attack was more used as a means to push Jeet back instead of actually harming him.

With hopefully Jeet now out of the way Dalinar would look up with Abdullah inching closer and closer towards him. "Jugon!" Dalinar shouted as he clenched his left hand into a fist while snapping it forward in a powerful straight, fist coated with hardening. Both techniques clashed against one another creating an incredible storm of willpower. But eventually, even with all the boosting factors on Abdullah's side, Dalinar's raw physical powers would triumph. The blessing granted to him by this ancient zoan was far beyond what these men dreamed possible. The fist would push through and perhaps break the weapon but this was uncertain for Dalinar did not know what kind of durability this blade had. The knockback from his attack would send kinetic energy through the hunter's arms and body, damaging him from within. Before the shockwave from this clash would hopefully send the man flying.

With both men now once more deflected Dalinar would exhale deeply resetting his mind from such a peculiar position. Still, his guard was up since there was still a sniper roaming around. Before going after him he had to see the results of his clashes and if these men were still able to fight. "So-called heroes...vultures that's what I'd personally call you. You lot sicken me. Deliverance will come to you. Either by my hand or through the wardens from Impel Down." Dalinar said, his reptilian eyes pierced with a damning coldness.

Black Fang Dalinar was awakened.

A Symbiotic Relationship - Trio In Trouble! #5

The village stood back, wagering their future on the battle before them: the Bastard Trio against Vice-Admiral Dalinar. Jean Ango cocked from the distance, standing at the ready as Dalinar countered his two partners with superior power.

Jeet used his attack to clash with the powered-up vice-admiral. The resulting clash made the ground shake, leaving the spectators in awe. With conviction, the Marine pushed Jeet back. The bounty hunter slid across the ground various times before flipping. He panted, holding his abdomen.

[Jeet] “Brother Abdullah!”
Jeet’s voice was overpowered by the sound of fist clashing with axe. The impact created a shockwave that fluttered around them, black lightning spawning off the impact point. The axe cracked, reverberating the force upon Abdullah’s body. The bounty hunter was pushed diagonally, crashing against a house, reducing it to rubble.

Jeet followed, taking off the resulting rubble and pulling out Abdullah. Bounty Hunters they were, but even at his vantage point, the vice-admiral could see they truly cared for each other. Dalinar would not have time to think, as the sniper had already attacked once more.

Mere moments after Abdullah was pushed back, swords with impeccable precision and invisible haki came towards Dalinar - this time 20 in number. They begun at his blind spot once more, but as Jean Ango jumped from roof to roof, they would change angles, aiming to riddle the Vice-admiral with holes.

Jean Ango stayed around 30 meters away. He knew that most color of observations had a distance limit. He hoped to make that his advantage, striking when the vice-Admiral focused on the duo and out of range.

[Jean Ango] “Gihaio: Sword Barrage!”

Gihaio (literally meaning "Entertainer Arrange King"): Jean Ango aims and throws weapons such as axes, swords or sabers bare handed at his enemies with great speed and strength. This attack is strong enough to pierce a wall and hurt Chinjao.
- Knives [D Rank]
- Axes [C Rank]
- Swords [B Rank]
- Spear [A Rank]
- Building [S Rank]

DPR: 120: 7. Town Level
[(Strength) 61-80: 4. Small Building Level] + [+2 (B Rank)] + [+1 (invisible haki)] = 120: 7. Town Level

There was no code of honor in battle. The vice-Admiral stood against three - Bastard Trio. They would pull any tricks to win, even if it means ganging up on the Marine and using a sniper. To them, this sanctuary, even if at the expense of the villagers, was their One Piece.

Dalinar would have to take it in blood.
