Akira could not believe what he saw when jumped through the stone threshold, landing on the roof of Moriah's manor. An gargantuan giant of a guy!? no... his body soared up for a slight moment more as the effects of gravity began to take place. A big blimp of a beast!!!? ...no that's still not quite right.. "hrrmmm" he landed with a soft TAP Tap! as the black haired boy was quite good at controlling his movements. Akira squatted down in frustration scratching his sideburns that he was just starting to grow in. "RAAAAAA!" he shouted as he jolted upright bringin both arms into the air together in pride, "A HUMONGOUS HERCULEAN OF A HUMAN!!!!!! YEEEEEEEEEAH!!!!".

It was so loud that Yoko could hear him from down below in the dining room even over the crashing stones. As she ran with the slightly sincere surgeon she shouted back, "THAT'S NO GOD DAMN HUMAN!" Her face jagged and frustrated that Akira was wasting so much time... "Sorry Dr. Hogback" she knocked open the door leading into the next room, "I'll come back for you! But stay here so you don't get hurt!" And with that she turned around to run back into the dining room. Whatever this freak of a thing is I've got to stop it so that I can complete my mission here! Yoko had never been a weak girl. So she was ready to take matters into her own hands. I can't let this chance with Hogback escape me! The infuatuated girl completely ignored Cindry-chan both times she passed her by.

Ko could not believe what he felt. Despite such a powerful attack that he had just unleashed. The titan before him was so large in frame and stature that it only had to pivot it's weight to stay balance. And as the thing began to move, Ko's jaw felt a rumbling as he held tight. The monster started to stumble yet again. The komainu dug his four sets of shiny, polished claws into the reddish decaying skin of Orz. His whole body vibrated at the unimaginable motions that the hulking humanoid made. GRRRR THAT'S IT! YOU'RE COMING DOWN! "RR RURI ROWR!" he managed to get out of his mouth as his fangs were still tightly clenched into Orz's leg. And just as Ko was about to unleash another powerful dropping technqiue, Orz spoke directly to him.

"Um, big doggy, may I ask you something?"
Huh!? Ko was astounded Did that bite feel like nothing to him, it's almost like he is ignoring it? His jaw loosened as he thought. No that's impossible look at the size of the scars I left across his leg! It must have done something. Tis just like a demon so play these tricks. He assumed. "Spawn of Satan I shall hear what you say." Ko announced as he slid down from Orz's leg. "But, first let me ask you; that other person inside of you is Moriah is it not?" A menacingly serious look erupted from Ko's eyes as his brow hut deep into them.

"BROBDINGNAGIAN BEHEMOTH OF A BOSS!!!!!!! HA TAKE THAT!!!" Akira bent over the hole and shouted down to Yoko as she approached the the roof's opening.

"Grrrr WHAT THE HECK YOU FOOL! IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING THAT THING COULD HURT KO!" She belted brashly to the boy. "OR WORSE!!! IT COULD HURT HOGBACK!!!"

"Eh who cares about him anyway?" Akira thought. Oh wait that's right Ko is already fighting isn't he!? So the distracted delinquent spun around rapidly throwing his flat hand over his forehead to peer at the scene before him from his vantage. "Oh..." that's odd Ko stopped. "Looks like they are just talking." He assured the gun-slinging girl.

Don't Dream It

"A person inside me? I didn't notice... Moria sang with me, so I trust him. But I really don't know what to think about him. Now please, answer my two-part question: Do you hate me, and if so, how can you hate me if you don't even know me?" said the giant Oars to the dog-like creature.

"Oh, but perhaps such a question is presumptuous. Moria said you were a bully, but maybe I can make a new friend. Do you have a dream?"

"My dream..." continued the giant, as if to springboard the conversation. "My dream is to be a world famous rockstar!"

Oars, you dwindling dolt! You bumbling buffoon, massive moron, incomprehensible idiot! thought Moria. Fraternising with the enemy! Do I even have any hope of commanding this willfully rebellious spirit?

"And, now that I think about it, Moria doesn't seem to interested in my dreams..." said the giant.

Moria wondered, what the hell am I supposed to do about this fool of fancy, this beast of burden, this...? Moria stopped himself, realising that he only waxed poetic like this when the stress overwhelmed him. No, I will not lower myself to such behaviour! I need to get a grip, and take control of this situation... but what to say?

Absalom and Perona's Lively Debate

Absalom had woke Perona up from her evening nap.

"This better be important, Absalom!"

"We need everyone awake, there's something going down in the main castle."

"Oh, and what exactly would that be?"

"Those people you observed earlier... they're up against Oars, and we don't know what could happen next."

"So why do you need me? Either Oars wins and we don't need to go, or he loses and I'm finding whatever escape route I can."

"Escape route? What happened to loyalty?"

"It goes with weakness. I'm only here under the impression that you lot are strong enough to protect me."

"Well I... grrr!"

Absalom was speechless, and Perona did not really want to talk. They reached a stalemate.

Ko listens patiently to what the enormous red titan has to say about itself and it's life. It's questions and it's passion. It's dream. So much will to live a fun and fulfilling life the beast thought, it's terribly tragic. The white willowed Komainu's eyes began to heat and cool. A film of sorrow spread over them as Ko heard Orz's declaration of dream. I don't even know it's name.

"I do not hate you, monster." The holy hound began. "It is mere fate and causality that bring the two of us to conflict here on this god forsaken island." Yes it is truly tragic, LORD. Ko overcame his heartache and stretched his smile upward through his tears. "You have such a beautiful heart, monster. And a beautiful dream." The pilgrim puppy lowered his eyes away from the aberration to wrestle with his thoughts.

Defeating Moriah is something that I cannot avoid. It would be much worse to waltz around the situation. What kind of monster traps a pure soul in such a horrible demon of a body? MORIAH! The lion scowled before returning his tender gaze upon the behemoth. "Perhaps we could be friends, but if you wanted to prove yourself a friend of mine you must complete but a simple request." Then starting the red ogre straight in the heart he said, "submit your love onto the LORD and distance yourself from the evil that is Gekko Moriah. Then I will not be your bully, but your savior, gentle giant. We can sing praise of the good God in heaven together. It would be lovely."


Yoko, now in a position of great vantage on the rooftop wonders. What do I do? If that thing starts attacking it could kill Doctor Hogback! But if I preemptively anger it, then it might just attack the castle. The girl is seated criss corss with a hand on her chin and her guns at her side. "Akira let's just wait and see what happens," the waiting woman exclaimed.

Akira stands on the edge of the mansion's grey-stone rooftop, his feet dwindling off the summit. Ko what is going on over there!? "I hate sitting around!" the bustling boy barked back at Yoko as he squatted and scratched the sides of his head. "I've gotta get over there and talk to Ko and find out what is going on!" Akira backs off to Yoko, giving her a smile. "Watch our back ok?" he proclaims with a thumbs up before turning back to his friend. Akira begins to sprint to the edge of the manor and leaps over to the monster aiming to hand on Orz's shoulder. "KO!!! WHAT IS HAPPENING!?"

Will I have to prey Moriah out by force? I wouldn't like that. But I will if it is what must be done. I might have to vanquish this monster regardless. I should just keep close watch for now. "What is your name?" Ko gently asks one more thing from Orz. Oh, Akira is coming over. "Let the monster speak more, Akira!"

I Can Make You A Man

Oars heard the dog-creature's words, and was perplexed. The shadow that lived inside of Oars was that of Eddie, a rebel and newkama with a tragic upbringing. His parents held very strict conservative beliefs, and would often scold him for the way he chose to express himself. They fed him on their diet, asked him to pray with them, and made him wear only clothing they approved of. They hated rock music, and would claim that it offended the ears of the Lord. His life was full of believers... hypocrites who made him feel like dirt. AS IF I COULD BELIEVE IN GOD, WHO SO MANY CLAIM WOULD REJECT ME! thought Oars. He did not voice this opinion, as he felt it was a reactive position, not befitting of the current conversation.

"So, you believe in God, doggy? Is that why you call me monster? Does God hate rock music? Does God hate boys who wear pink leather jackets, pink skirts, and fishnet stockings? I know I'm asking a lot of questions, but my childhood gave me those questions."

"If you expect or want me to live a pious life, you need to answer them... because my parents had specific answers that forced me into a very unhappy lifestyle."

The giant Oars reflected a moment. "Wait a minute, that's right! I'm a shadow! I don't belong in this body! Doggy, you gotta get me outta here! If we ever meet again, my real name is Eddie!"

Moria stewed inside Oars' stomach compartment, hearing the giant's words and growing furious. This fucking lump of flesh still acts likes he's from his original body! Just what kind of willpower did that random newkama even have?

Moria still had no idea how to handle the situation, his mind clouded with worst possible scenarios, and the looming threat of defeat bearing down on him. He hadn't felt this way since Kaido killed his original crew. He wondered what the hell would happen to him, now that he had made an enemy of this bizarre and powerful creature, who by all accounts, reminded him of those mythical beasts of Wano.

There was little else he could do right now but stew in his own confusion, as the giant continued to talk with the beast.

Akira lands beside the pup-cub natured komainu and smiles at his friend. Then he looks to the monster before him and melts away as he speaks. Akira is but a young man himself and the pain of others was always something he had profound understanding of. When he first met Ko, the presence of the beast alone was enough to show the boy the holy light.

Ko could feel the pain and unrest within the red revolver's voice. The questions he has. This poor creature was not raised in the same light that I was. He was brought up under a cold and hateful glare."Monster," the komainu and bushy haired boy both empathetically spoke as he looked Oarz in the eyes, "it is never wrong to love." "It is Never wrong to love!"

Akira could not stop weeping and word could no longer emit from his mouth as the past of the monster stuck a hard chord with him. Though his color of observation was weak, his natural affinity was more than most people could ever have in their life even through training.

Hearing Eddie's true name, the beautiful beast took a deep breath and the world around him stopped. He closed his eyes and in his mind he saw a bountiful light. Something to wash away this nightmare. So serene and heavenly that it could only truly be described as the LORD himself. Lord, Ko pleaded, please lend me your strength. And finishing his inhale, the pilgrim continued. "We are all sinners, Eddie. Born this way from the curse of imperfection. But, because of this we all can grow! Whatever your doubts cast them aside and look at God with your heart. God gives you life and love and when you accept him then you will know no pain. Whatever anyone told you to bring you down, whatever shadows Moriah has clouded within your mind. You will find peace and absolution in the LORD if you seek him with love. Your nightmare will be over."


Then with a sudden ferocity and toothy smile the komainu looked again like a wild beast. "EDDIE!" Ko roared. "If you are ready to cast aside the shadows and accept the goodness of the LORD into your heart then I will gladly free you from the shackles that this grim Warlord hath sought to behold you to!"

Yoko jump up from her castle high vantage HUHH!? WHY DOES IT LOOK LIKE HE IS ABOUT TO START FIGHTING AGAIN!? She rattles her sniper riffle as she picks it up to takes aim. I told Akira I would back them up!

Ko watched Moriah writhe around inside the body of the behemoth like a sick and twisted parasite living only to suck the life force of another dry. Akira could feel the pressure in the air building up from within his komainu friend. I've seen Ko do something like this before. But... for some reason... that look he just gave me! (the beast quickly nod's at his young friend) Ko I won't waste time I know what you want me to do!

There were two monsters standing in the shadows of this dark and misty clad island. One a monster not by choice, but by torture. Another hid within the body of the defiled lurking for a way out of this situation.

There were two holy men standing in the light of the lord on his vassal, the earth. One a monster not by choice, but by birth. Another a growing boy with a body that was defiled by a great darkness that he was looking to overcome.

The bellowing boy's tears slip down the side of his cheeks as the wind becomes razors from his exhausting sprint towards the towering titan. "EDDIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Akira cries out loud. Jumping to the center of Oarz, it was almost like a demon appeared before the red monster. Akira's two dagger's looked like they could be... claws? "EAGLE'S ENDLESS HORIZON!" the boy shouted. His fists glared a brilliant black which ran up his daggers and and hair bobbing as he sank. Aimed at the neck of Eddie, his twin blades would rip down along Oar'z center in a tornado of empathy aiming to weaken the stitches that Doctor Hogback had so preciously sewn. Then if Oarz shown no resistance or counter strike he would jump away and run as far from Ko as he could. This is going to get very dangerous isn't it Ko? Are you sure he can handle that strength, Lord?
Eagle's Endless Horizon
requires 71 strength, 71 mastery in Demon Hunter, 71 mastery in Daggers

Ko would wait for this strike and after he saw Akira move to safety he would unleash the total might of God. "Moriah your evil deeds end here!" he would roar before unleashing an attack that even he, himself had not know to be capable of using. But from the omniscience of the LORD, who knows Moriah's plan to use Eddie for revenge on Kaido, Ko's typical restrictions would be vanquished and the LORD would bless the white coated beast with armor of black judgement (full body armament haki).
will describe during my next turn if Akira gets away otherwise Ko will do a different move to try to protect Akira in the case that Oarz or Moriah attack the boy.

5. You shall not kill

Kö's place is not to judge those before him. He will not kill... intentionally.

God's will would cause Ko to attempt to bisect Oarz down the line that Akira would have made (freeing Eddie's shadow) and devour Moriah within his lion jaws as he tried to escape. Killing the Warlord if successful.

I'm Going Home? Part 1

The boy's attack ripped through Oars' skin, or rather the curtains on his stomach, revealing the room inside, which appeared to be empty. Moria had retreated into his own shadow as the curtains fell, and began to move swiftly out of Oars and as far away as he could.

Meanwhile, Oars had a dumb smile on his face, completely ignoring the attacks on him, as he could not feel pain, and did not feel bothered by them. "Gee, thank you for your efforts. I can't wait until I'm out of this giant body... I feel like it's making me stupider, so that's not good."

"Ah, but that Moria guy is gone, I think. You might want to get him... that'll solve the problem quicker, I think."

"I'll just sit here while you go after him, okay?"

As he said this, the dog-lion's attack tore straight through Oars, ripping the giant in half. The giant fell into two pieces, his lower half collapsing and becoming lifeless, while his top half fell to the ground and though remained alive, was rendered immobile by the impact of the fall.

"This is fine. I presume that attack was meant for Moria? Well, now I trust you completely, strange doggy."

Oars closed his eyes and went to sleep.

Though Ko's attack is faster than Moria, Akira's attack was not. As Ko had to wait until after Akira's attack, this gave Moria the opportunity to escape.

The Second of the Failures, Part I: Perona and Absalom's Plan

"Alright, I know things here aren't going so well at the moment, but how exactly do you plan on escaping?"

"I'll have Tararan weave a web and escort me and a boat over the gate."

"That's a good plan, all things considered, but why don't we just hit the intruders with everything we've got?"

"You really don't get it, do you? Those people are not worth messing with!"

"Grr! We can still make this work. Trust me on this Perona, we've got to do something!"

"Fine, but if we lose here, or worse... we die... I'm definitely blaming you."

"My eternal soul can live with that."

Great job Akira! Ko pronounced within his relieved mind that the enormous creature really was on their side And thank you, Eddie! His paws folded across his chest pressing his fur down with muscle.

As Akira jumped off the stomach of the red monster, he nodded at the komainu whose newly blackened body shocked the boy. This is really serious! I better get away from Ko I've never seen him like this! In a blindly fast motion the beast released his arms viciously to rend the body of the titan.

Good God!? It was only after Ko struck did he noticed that God had physically changed him so much. The move was so powerful that the top half of Oarz lifted up for a moment while his legs fell. It dented the earth below the saint and leveled him a bit off balance so that Ko wouldn't be able to lunge forward and sink his teeth into the escaping Moriah. Though the beast was too surprised anyway to track the villan at this point.

With a heartfelt smile Ko spoke to his new nakama, "I vow to find you for real someday, Eddie!" Ko promised as the upper portion of the monster plummeted to the ground causing yet another tremor to go across the island. "Be free!" Akira had now hopped his way back behind the komainu to wait and watch. I know that Ko said that this Moriah guy was here too. I need to stay sharp. He gave the blue eyed doggie a thumbs up. "We did a good thing for him! Ha ha!" The boy's spirit lifted.


"WHAT THE FUCK!??" Yoko yelled as she viewed down her scoped sight line witnessing the destructive feat. "HE- h-h ..." she stammered to make out any words at all. Just staring at the new armored form of the pilgrim pet before her whom she knew was very strong, but didn't comprehend how much she had underestimated. I guess they weren't joking around with this god stuff after all...

The jaw dropped damsel's gun now sunk and she forgot what she was doing for a moment.

"MORIAH!!!" Ko roared. "I know you are there!" His light from god was starting to show him everything that lay before the beast within the area.

"SHOOT!" Yoko, audibly to the castle below, burst out. I'm supposed to be watching out for these guys. She lifted her riffle back up and concentrated as hard as she could. Things around her become a bit fuzzy. And most of it went black. BUT! There was a soul still within the body of the behemoth. Then with a deep inhale and all her might she yelled down to the two, "I SEE HIM, KO!!! AKIRA!!! HE'S THERE!!!!!" And with that the sharpshooter took a shot of her barrett at the part of Oarz's body that Moriah had swam to.

The strike was mostly meant to show them the location of the shadow master. Not damage him, but possible pierce through Oarz. BOOOOOOM the barrel of the arm canon roared as it's stock knocked back into the young lady's arm causing her to snarl her nose.

I'm Going Home? Part 2 will happen once Eddie's shadow leaves Oars' body. It is not currently able to do that, so Moria must be defeated first.

Moria's Last Stand


Moria had begun travelling across Oars' leg, when a bullet travelled towards him. He was fast enough to dodge it, but it pierced the skin of Oars' legs. Unable to feel pain, cut in two, and asleep, the giant would not have noticed the bullet. Moria reached the end of Oar's foot, and broke away from the giant, becoming his own distinct shadow. He then rose from that shadow, indignant.

"You want to fight so bad, then fine!"

Suddenly, a song started playing from seemingly nowhere.

"Hogback, is that one of your dumb songs again?"

Hogback, who had been lying still, trying to avoid conflict by playing dead, cough and sputtered when he realised what was happening.

"Sorry about that, Moria, I don't even know where the tone dial jukebox even is anymore," said Hogback.

"Well, no matter. This creature of the night is about to fight dirty! Kishishishi... that sounded better in my head!"

Moria's shadow came out from under him, becoming its own person.

"Kishishishi! Let's see if you can fight two of me!"

-Doppelman (影法師(ドッペルマン) Dopperuman?, literally meaning "Silhouette"): The name of the dark silhouette-like figure the user makes using their own shadow. They do this by using their Devil Fruit powers on his own shadow, causing it to rise from whatever surface it is being cast upon by his body and into a three-dimensional mobile state. Can not swap places with Doppelman. Doppelman is not immortal.

The Second of the Failures, Part II: Full Force

With a newfound do-or-die attitude, Perona and Absalom descended from her tower to the scene of Moria's battle with the dog creature. It was time to divide the attention of their opponents, however they could.

Perona would focus on fighting the woman, and Absalom on the man, and both were determined to come out on top. Absalom, already invisible, would attempt to sneak up on his opponent and punch them in the face. Meanwhile, Perona summoned ran up to her opponent and spawned a ghost. "Negative Hollow!" she exclaimed as she did so. The ghost flew towards the woman, aiming to pass through her.

In the mean time, surprise zombies, general zombies, spider mice, and all other remaining zombies gathered in one place.

Negative Hollow (ネガティブ・ホロウ Negatibu Horō?): the user summons a tangible ghost to drain the will of any person it comes into contact with. This stuns the target for one turn so long as they have half or less haki mastery than the user's DF mastery. Ghost durability is 21 and movement speed is equal to devil fruit mastery.

With the previous shock that Ko was experiencing his new black armor had dropped. The bullet from Yoko's barrel whizzed past the beast as the young girls hair swayed in the ominous and tense presence of Thriller Bark.

Moriah appeared from within the body of the fallen titan, Eddie. Ko saw the skinned, demonic looking man rise up from within the body of his recently departed new friend. The komainu had not been "watching" the Warlord through the eye's of god nor had he remembered his surrounding in this moment. So when the little iron ball and the fearsome 22 foot man crossed by his vision, inherently reawakening the mind of the beast to the environment before him, all he did was instincually "WOOF!"

Akira was watching from about two dozen feet away. The shadow figure twisted up from the ground in such a spook that it send the adolescent hair up from the back of the boy's neck. What!? He really is some sort of demon man!

Ko growled at the shadow, ignoring Dr. Hogoback. Yoko, who was still looking down on them all from her telescoped sight, belted a small and piercing "Yip!" Doctor Hogoback! Why is he down there with Ko and Akira!? This is no good at all! He needs to be somewhere safe so he can perform his magical surgery on me later!

The less than bouyant girl managed to spring to her feet I'm coming! She thought as her body began to jolt forward, not giving a second sentence to how she would get down from the castle. Nigh, it was too late. Perona, had managed to get the better of the distracted female counterpart and her words "Negative Hollow!" rang in one ear and out the other. Just as the ghost went in to and back out the other side of Yoko. The heroine dropped to the ground with an immense gravity weighing down her mind... Hogback will get killed in the aftermath of the battle and I'll never be able to become beautiful...

Ko finally stopped barking only to bark back at the brute before him and rush ahead, "I will end your evil deeds, foul heretic!" and with his words ending, Ko chomped down into the left shoulder of the doppleman!
will describe during my next turn if Akira gets away otherwise Ko will do a different move to try to protect Akira in the case that Oarz or Moriah attack the boy.

he is ending the attack that Ko tried to use before but was set off balance, so he is only using the final biting part of it!
Black armor ran across the komainu's jaws as he attempted to lunge into the shadow. The LORD was still with him. Ko's vision become light and clear yet again. He saw everything around him. Yoko is in trouble!? Hogoback is here? Akira!!! look out! But with his mouth full, the goodly pilgrim could not warm his friend.

The bushy haired boy was walloped! An animal shaped imprint rest across his chin as his body spun! WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?! Akira's inner voiced questioned as his gaze got knocked away from the fight before him and toward the ground!

Perona's ghost had successfully gone through her opponent. A nearby Tararan decided to take full advantage of this opportunity, shooting webbing out of his hands, aimed at cocooning the woman from neck to toe, leaving her head free to breathe, or perhaps voice complaints. In the mean time, Absalom was surprised that his punch landed. Did he have observation haki or was he too distracted to see me coming? thought the lion-faced invisible man.

Moria's Doppelman was only as durable as he was, and that was not enough to withstand the bite of this determined creature. Doppelman faded away, once again becoming Moria's normal shadow. It was unlikely that he could use the technique again any time soon, and as far as Moria was concerned, he didn't need to, if he could just get away.

"Yohoho... Absalom, you know the only chance we have here to use our numbers, and if they aren't ready for us, then we rush them with everything we've got," said the zombie general, Ryuma.

Though Absalom was tempted to give his opponent a fighting chance, he knew that one wrong move could mean the end of their crew.

"Alright, what do you propose to do?"

"I've already done it," said Ryuma. Ryuma sheathed his sword. "Hanauta Sancho: Yahazu Giri!"

"Wait, when did you even-" asked Absalom, confused.

-Hanauta Sancho: Yahazu Giri (鼻唄三丁矢筈斬り Hanauta Sanchō: Yahazu Giri?, literally meaning "Three-Verse Humming: Arrow-Notch Slash"): The user slashes an opponent at such a fast pace that it appears that they did not attack at all (in fact, to the casual observer it would look like the user simply walked past the victim). Only when a certain amount of time has passed, which is approximate to the time the user walks ten feet away, or three meters (verses, as the name suggests), does their opponent realize the attack. It seems to employ elements of iai (instant sword-draw-and-resheath) since it is generally initiated (though not always) with the user moving towards the intended target(s) with an unsheathed blade and walking past them before sheathing it back. It is usually at this point that the victims start manifesting and feeling the effects of this high-speed attack. The actual attack itself, however, is never seen clearly due to the speed implemented. The technique is highly versatile, since with it, the user can slash multiple targets at once, and if they so wish, the damage they inflict can be as fatal or as incapacitating as they like.(41 Mastery, 41 Strength and 41 Movement Speed) Destructive Potency Rank: B

Note: In this instance, the intention is to use this move, of course it will be up to the opponent's actions and their stats whether or not the move will connect or even be effective.

Captain John stumbled his way toward the samurai zombie and Absalom. "If ya need an'thin' Absa jus' say so..."

Absalom had a look of shock on his face. "How can you be drunk at a time like this?"

Every remaining zombie on the island came to this central scene. Perona's Wonder Garden zombies, the General Zombies, the Spider-Mice, the Surprise Zombies, the regular Zombies, all ready to see if they could maintain the upper hand here and perhaps even win the battle.

Yoko was fallen. Now the world around her wrapped the young perfection seeker in a warm depression. It bound her soul as the webs bound her body. She showed no signs of resistance.

Maybe I will be reborn as an insignificant protozoa so that I can drift about in the sea, a meaningless life that I deserve...

Her face was purple. The markswoman's body now hung by the threads of fate...

She embraced the sweep warmth of surrender.

It's calming. Giving up... Maybe I should have done this a long time ago. The ferocious hearted girl thought. Why did I even give myself hope at all?


Smashing down into the ground, Akira was dumbfounded. The brutish boy tried to look around as he bounced, but only saw an eclipsing swarm of the undead in the distance. Is there nothing here? Did I just pass out for a second?

The woke warrior noticed the soft footsteps among the swarm approach. It was speaking. To him? No it's almost like that Samurai Zombie is speaking to himself? But then a difference voice returned an answer from out of no-where!??? "HUUUUUUUUUUUUH!?" Akira was so confused that he didn't even bother attacking back yet. It was like he was in math class all over again... steam started coming from his ears as they continued.

Then lifting up his core Akira shouted "A-ha!" using his flat hand and his fist as a gavel. "There's just someone very very small near bye!" But as the foolish youth decided on the wrong conclusion, blood came rushing up from his chest! "Bluuuuugh!" Akira coughed. Damn! That Samurai is no joke! Oh forgive me, Lord. E-hem! I can't let Ko worry about me!

Somehow through the pain, Akira smiled. The force of the slash sent him back to the earth as he went limp for a moment. Rather than falling, however, the acrobat used this to flip himself into a summersault and land back onto his feet! A line of blood painted the motion on the hallowed dirt between them. "Alright Samurai and little insect man! I don't care what kind of power you have! For God is my might!~"

And so the warrior crushed the soil below with his knees as he squat, leaning forwards. And taking his knives at his hips with crossed arms, the spear of God launched forward to strike! "Harpy Hunting!"
Harpy Hunting
requires 41 strength, 41 movement, 41 daggers
First winding up a set of daggers, the user leaps forward and slashes across the target like the talons of a harpy.
DPR: B

His blades would glow black with haki now. Unwinding and slash upwards, across the nape of Ryuuma's neck in attempt to sever his head as Akira launched himself forward. If successful he would try to emulate Ko's roar in a much weaker form (DPR: D) to try to knock away the little bug that he though he was fighting (the invisible Absalom).

Ko saw all before him. On the roofs Yoko was being over taken and captured. Beside him Akira had just taken a nasty slash. And all around, he didn't need his holy vision to see the miasma of reanimated figures beginning to surround him. But for some reason... Moriah was leaving? "Grrrrr" the beast angrily accepted it I can't give chase to that blasphemer right now. My friends are in trouble!

So the komainu turned from Moriah and drove into the zombies before him so that he could reach Akira. "ROOOOOAR!!!" Don't worry, Akira, Yoko! I'll will save you! His whole body would smash through the decaying corpses in his way

Kö remembers his pilgrimage thus far. He hopes that he will find atonement for his sins. Charging in aggressively towards his enemy, he leaps and whips the back of his body at them like a crushing wave, spinning to face them before he lands.
(requires 81 strength, 81 movement, 81 mastery) - DPR: S

On the castle high, Yoko snapped out of her funk that the negative ghosts put her in. "THIS IS SOOOO TOTALLY GROSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!"

When I Think About It... It Must Be Pandemonium


Will presume stats given by opponent indicate even distribution if not specified, e.g. if vitality = 100, but durability and stamina are not given, then durability = 100 and stamina = 100. (has not been necessary yet, but it might be in these upcoming posts)

Ryuma had been ill-prepared for the boy's counterattack, and though it did not contain the element of surprise like his attacks did, it still landed. The Zombie General's neck was slashed wide open, making it impossible for the shadow to remain within its host. It flew out to whoever its original owner might have been.

Assuming the roar attack being referenced in the above post is the same one from post 27.

Absalom was taken aback by the sudden defeat of the general, such that he allowed himself to take the full force of the boy's roar. However, it was not powerful enough to do much more than push him back a little, and leave him somewhat impressed.

"That's a nice roar, for a kitten," said Absalom. "Here's mine." Absalom lifted his arms and shot from the invisible bazookas he had tied to them. Grrr, I'm not letting him see me while he's yet to realise my full presence. An explosive projectile was launched straight at the boy's face, and due to his closeness, there was a likelihood that it would hit.

Absalom:
Bazooka Fire - Basic use of bazookas DPR: D

Perona and Hogback went up to the girl, who was currently stuck within Tararan's webbing.

"Horo horo horo horo!" laughed Perona. "So, what's the deal with this girl, Hogback?"

"Fos fos fos fos! She wants a surgery, god knows for what, vanity, status, whatever... but she seems not to understand that my services don't come cheap. If she wants my help, she'd better have an interesting idea, and come willingly."

"Yes, well taking her for this surgery seems like a better use of our time right now than sticking around and fighting it out."

"What say you, woman? A surgery that interests me... take it or leave it."

The komainu was running with his whole body towards his friends, and were there any zombies in his way, they almost surely would have been torn apart by the force of the creature's momentum. This was the case unfortunately for about fifty-five zombies or so, all on the lowest level of strength. The tide was beginning to turn against the massive force of Moria's army once more, but time would tell who would emerge the victor after all had been said and done.

Akira flew past the zombie samurai in a flash as a bird of prey gliding down to catch it's prey. It had seemed their difference in skill was apparent as it's head was thrown to the floor releasing the body of a legendary man from Moriah's grasp. Hearing of the proud people of Wano from Ko, Akira closed his eyes and whispered "rest in peace". The body collapsing behind the hunter.

Then bellowing with all his might in anger of what Moriah had done to a once proud man, he shouted "MORIAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!" which caused the gloomy trees of Thriller Bark to shake. Even Absolom was pushed back some what. Now onto that bug... the naive boy thought, that should have shook it up for sure! BLAM! Another surprise attack knocked the follower of the Lord from his feet. A great cloud of smoke covered his once bushy hair and typically tearful expressions. As he sailed over the ground for a moment he thought Ko... don't you worry about me.

But before he could land, the boy found himself could in a fluff of white spirals that cushioned his lanky form like a magical pillow. "Akira! Don't worry. I will end this hethen. Just rest now."

"K-Ko?..." Akira moaned, his face slathered red with life-force. Then shaking his bushy hair and moaning, the boy stretched to get up. "This bug's pretty tough. But don't worry I'm fine!" He smiled before bursting out in a complete fountain of tears!

Akira jumped out of the embrace from the beast and declared pointing to the swarm of generals that surrounded them. "How could he?" a heart-warmed flow of empathy surrounded the goodly teen. "You poor people... all ripped up from a peaceful slumber in the embrace of the Lord."

Ko waited for his friend, but all the while peer into the beyond. A white shine came from each and every creature around and revealed the Lord's truth to him. An all pressence. All is God. Ko knew. "Akira it's no bug, but some invisible abomination that has assaulted you."

"HUH!?" Akira looked at all the Zombie generals but couldn't tell. "How do you know, Ko?"

"God is good, Akira." The pilgrim smiled. "Little cub," turning to Absalom, "I will show you salvation." Ko growled. And as if the beast was the light of the Lord itself he appeared before the chimera of a man slamming his mighty paw over the head of the lion faced man.

(requires 61 strength, 61 mastery) - DPR: B

"GO TO THE ROOFTOPS!" The beast shouted to his friend, he would hold back the swarm with his sheer strength alone regardless if his attack succeeded in taking Absalom out. "YOKO IS IN TROUBLE!"

!!! Yoko!? Akira turned back quick squinting his eyes, he could make out some figures atop of the castle. His tears and blood flung off him as Akira turned and his face looked quite serious. "Right!" The hunter jumped away with great nimbleness hopping from tombstone to tree to fence like an owl flying from perch to perch.

Now with the offer made from the great surgeon Hogback, Yoko was struck with a dilemma. Should I accept this? He is supposed to be the best in the world! But... his surgery? Why can't I make the decision for myself? It's my body! I should be able to have it modified the way I want! The rambunctious redhead struggled in the webs as the thought, but alas she was too weak to break free. Then she held her chin low to her chest and spoke quietly with increasing anger and volume. "A surgery that interests you? Throwing creepy ghosts at me. Making me second guess my life choices? And ....and.... COVERING ME WITH THESE GROSS SPIDER WEBS!?!?!?!? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!?" Yoko now started directly at them and bounced to and fro in her wrapped up state. "I CAN HERE TO BECOME BEAUTIFUL BUT YOU ARE ALL JUST UGLY CREEPS!!! I'LL NEVER ACHIEVE MY DREAMS HERE!!!"

shoom~ clamp! Akira would now land atop of castle before the Surgeon, Princess and Monster Spider. His body hung over his legs and his arms spread, touching the stone to lessen the impact on his mighty legs. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” - Proverbs 3:5-6. As Akira looked up to them his hair was noticeably beginning to to squirm all over his body....

Isn't It a Shame When Things Aren't In Your Favour?

Only three songs left from the Rocky Horror Soundtrack and none of them fit here. Sorry :/

Hogback was disappointed in the girl's change of heart. "Oh dear, the girl doesn't like her restraints. I'm sorry we don't have leather or rope or something more comfortable, but a good doctor works with the tools available to him. In any case, if you truly believe that you won't be helped, then you're right, there's nothing I can do with an unwilling patient."

Realising that they now had new company, Hogback turned to face the boy. "Hello there, your friend is unharmed, she is bound in webbing that can be melted away by a loose flame. Deal with the zombies as you see fit, but Perona and I are done here."

"Wait, what are you saying, Hogback?" asked Perona. She had earlier resolved to fight with Absalom, but it seemed that her original plan to run off might have been a better option. Of course, Hogback's disregard for Tararan could be trouble for them, as escaping with prove more difficult without the zombie's webbing. "Well, I don't want to die here, especially not to some highly religious folks who seem to be offended by my devil fruit powers. People are quick to show you their scary side, all because couldn't appreciate a little sadness."

"Perona, why are you venting here and now, they're listening," said Hogback. "We should figure out our next move, because I'm not a fan of confrontation, and it seems the venture with Moria is not working out right now."

Not too far from this conversation, Absalom had been slapped hard in the head by Ko's paw. He went flying about twenty metres across the island, the attack too much for his body to handle. The impact had killed him, and as such had restored visibility to his form and the weapons he carried. Absalom had no time for even a final thought, as it had all happened faster than his brain could comprehend.

Moria had retreated into his own shadow, and hid himself away in a corner of the forest. Shit, he thought. A part of me wants to defeat these intruders, but right now, I can't even think of how to begin. I'm too weak, he thought. I can't lose my crew again, but, I don't want to die!

All of the zombies still standing, led by a hardly coherent Captain John, stood against the dog-like creature, hoping that somehow, their numbers would mean something or make a difference. At this point however, though they served Moria, their faith in him had been shaken, and the shadows within secretly hoped to be reunited with their rightful owners.

One zombie, looking like a large pig-woman in a wedding dress, saw that Absalom had died. "You killed Absalom!" she said. "Now you must... MARRY ME!"

The air was brushing by slowly and spinning around the follicles of the young boy's hair. Strands reached out and snapped at the wind as it swept by... but Akira was starting to loose himself, Hogback's gentle demeanor and logic settles his rash emotions down and Akira's hair began to settle once more. "Oh? Really!? Hang on Yoko!" The boy search his pockets and finding nothing began to shuffle his arms all over his body...

While the doctor and princess were lost in their own discussion Yoko carried onto the boy, "Akira... GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!"

"HUH!?" The searcher shocked back into realizing the situation and that there was a giant spider zombie before him. "Hey! Spider! You do this!?" He asked getting quite upset yet again.

"OF COURSE!" Yoko shrieked

"RAAAAAA!" Akira would launch himself upwards to prepare for a descending strike on Tararan with his two daggers aimed at his body, "Hell Hawk!"
Hell Hawk: a jump followed by a downward slice
requires 21 strength, 21 movement, 21 mastery - DPR: C

Akira's Strength: 71 + DPR: C is Large Building level

Meanwhile on the hollow grounds below...


Ko had pawed the invisible chimera man into oblivion but the moment after the beast struck Absolam, Ko turned to the rest of the Zombies and merely thought to himself That should put the blasphemer to sleep for a few hours. Maybe he will ponder his actions in that time. In complete and utter ignorance of what he had actually just done.

"MORIAH!!!!!!" Ko roared as he noticed the royal warlord creeping away. But attempting to charge out of the swarm of greater zombies he was met with a boar of a woman.... literally she was a boar woman. As her lips struck out to attack Ko, the pilgrim spoke the greatest truth that would ultimately defeat her lovey dovey attitude, "Marry you? It would be more of my obligation to bury you..."

And with that Ko would merely aim to paw her down to the ground to bury her back where she belonged before leaping into the air to follow after the warlord. (base attack)

Moria's Hopeless Situation


My Shadows Asgard... will it truly be of use here? This beast is tearing through my zombies like they're nothing. Overpowering my living crew... no-one has any confidence that they can beat these three... the numbers are on our side, but somehow we lack the strength. I haven't lost my cool like this since Kaido, I can't believe it, but I don't know what to do here....

Moria continued to think to himself while submerged in his own shadow. If he could think of anything to do, now would be the time.

Hogback and Perona realised they had been mostly ignored, and used the opportunity to get some distance between them and everything else that was going on. They were halfway through the northern forest when Hogback had a question for Perona.

"Are you really bringing Kumacy with you?" asked Hogback.

"Yes, it's not like defeating Moria will recall the shadows. Why aren't you bringing Cindry?"

"Well, truth be told I don't know where she went."

"All men and plates should die," said a voice from behind Hogback.

"Gah!" said Hogback, jumping a metre in the air. "Don't sneak up on people, Cindry!"

"Well I think that-"

"Shut up, Kumacy!" said Perona.

Tararan was sliced by an attack from the boy, an attack that went all down his body and knocked him out. However, as it did not bisect him, the shadow remained inside. The Lola zombie was indeed knocked out by the attack, in her case being much more powerful than her body would withstand, but again as her body was intact, no shadow came out.

Knocked out zombies will not get back up, but will still have the shadows trapped inside.

As the lion-dog left to pursue Moria, the zombies that remained focused their efforts on finding the man and woman, and surrounding them. They began to wander over to where Tararan's body lay.

The Secret Weapon of the Thriller Bark Victims Association

At the same time, the Thriller Bark Victims Association had convened in the western forest
.

"You trust this big dog and his companions?" asked a large pink-haired woman.

"Yes, absolutely. They've also had their fair share of success so far," said Spoil, the old man with serious injuries.

"Hm, I wonder if there's a handsome man among them who would marry me..."

"That's not important captain, what's important is whether or not we should offer them a needed power up!" said a man in a striped shirt and with curly brown hair.

"Do they even need it though?" asked a man with a black mask and a sword strapped to his back.

"Who cares if they need it, I say give it to them anyway!" said the first man.

"But how do we offer them help, they're in the midst of battle!" said the second.

"Shush you two!" said the pink-haired woman. "The dog is pursuing Moria. This is our chance, to offer the secret weapon!"

With the boar zombie out of his way, Ko now leapt over the remaining zombie generals and followed after the vision of Moriah that the Lord had bestowed on to him. If I don't go now I have a feeling I will lose track of that blasphemer! And as the wild komainu sailed over them, the zombie generals decided to give up... so they headed for the castle where Akira and Yoko still were.

Ko galloped over the hallowed earth with all his might. Moraih you fiend!!!! You shall not escape the will of the LORD! "ROOOOOOAR!!!" darting past crestfallen trees the abyssal black crows scattered from their tops as the pounding paws padded the path. But as Ko drew nearer and nearer, he noticed the presence of many other individuals coming from the trees. P-people!? And he began to slow down. Those fools are right next to the mad Moriah, himself! I've got to warn them not to go any further! So taking a quick turn, Ko's hind legs left skids in the soil as he slid and scampered off at the folk before him. One he would recognize... "old man!?"


Meanwhile atop the castle Akira had stricken a powerful blow to Tararan, the giant spider monkey. But noticing that it was not quite enough he quickly took a leap backwards and raised his arm over Yoko. "It seems this guy is a little more dangerous than I thought!"

Yoko, still stuck in the webs just wrestled and shouted at the naïve boy "YOU KNOCKED IT OUT ALREADY!!!!! CAN'T YOU TELL!?!?!?" Yoko who had much much better observation could easily tell. As she squirmed and squirmed no progress was made so she reiterated from before, "AKIRA GET ME OUT OF THESE WEBS ALREADY THEY ARE SOOOOO FREAKIN GROOOOOOOOOOSS!!!"

"Huh!?" Akira turned his head with his body still facing the spider ready for a fight. "You mean you can't just tear through them yourself?" The powerful young man was completely lost in confusion and didn't even believe Yoko. "Hahahah oh I get it you are just trying to joke around with me!" he smiled at Yoko with a hearty chuckle before turning back to face Tararan. "Now don't you worry I'll finish him off! Sundering Sparrow!" He shouted dashing back towards the unconscious zombie spider slicing in in several spots with his blades. The body of Tararan would appear to have been grabbed and cut with sparrow talons.
Sundering Sparrow: requires 41 strength, 41 movement, 41 mastery DPR: B

"AKIRA I'M NOT LYING GOD DAMNITTTTT!!!" the red faced girl shouted now out of breath.

"HEY!" Akira shouted back turning fully to scold Yoko, "Don't take the Lord's name in vain like that!" he bent his back down and looked at her as harsh as his young eyes were capable...


"AKIRA THERE ARE MORE ZOMBIES TRYING TO SCALE THE CASTLE GET ME OUT OF HERE ALREADY!!!!" Yoko was still watching their surrounding with her haki abilities since she didn't trust the boy one bit...

"Huh!?" finally he peered over the side of the rooftop to see a swarm of Zombies and General Zombies approaching. "HOLY!" So he swiftly slid over to Yoko finally cutting her free.

"My guns my guns my guns!" Yoko shook in nervousness as she searched for her weapons. "GOT THEM!" *ch-chick!* and with a quick prep she was ready to fight. "Locked and loaded!" Aiming down the barrel of her Barret .50 Cal Yoko took the first shot! "Die die die die die die die die die JUST DIE ALREADY!!!"


Back at the woods Ko was speaking to the Thriller Bark Victims Association who had refused to leave right away. "You want to do WHAT!?" The bemudded beast reeled back in horror. "No no no. Please, good people. You need not stoop so dark as to take the power of lucifer. Trust in the Lord! His light will guide us all!" with a toothy smile, Ko would try to persuade all those victims before him to leave and take shelter.

"Please! I beg of you all. I know it is hard." Ko paused with empathy thinking upon their past. "What that man has done to all of you... I know that it isn't right!" Letting the Lord's light overtake his vision, the pilgrim spoke softly. "Try to put your faith in God. Close your eyes and open your hearts and your souls. He will forgive you! He will accept you! Let the Lord wash away your pain like he has done for me!" Ko's eyes open and look at each individual member. He speaks proudly now with the spirit of a lion "You need not fear the demons that lurk this land. The shadows that creep behind every tree and stone. These villains that haunt you shall be vanquished! For God is good!"

Lola and her fellow Thriller Bark victims were surprised by the creature's refusal to accept the power they had discovered, but respected his decision and his devotion to his Lord.

"Very well, good luck fighting Moria, strong creature," said Lola.

Moria had come to a decision. This was no longer a matter of whether to fight or not... he had to protect his investments. He had to stand up for himself. This bizarre creature, though reminiscent of a creature he had seen in Wano, was nothing compared to Kaido. At least, he highly doubted it. He pulled himself together and resumed his normal form. He activated his observation haki, and sensed that the beast that had caused him to worry was close by.

"Kishishishi! All right beast, get ready for my last resort!" yelled Moria. He knew he was not facing the beast, but somehow figured that if he yelled loud enough, that the nearby animal would hear him.

Moria concentrated and shadow strings began to fly out from his form, travelling across the island to their targets. I've got to choose my targets wisely, he thought. And so twenty zombies had their shadows ripped from their bodies.

In an isolated part of the forest, drunken and passed out, MocDonald and Unigaro were the first to go. At the scene of the struggle between zombies and the man and woman, the defeated Lola and Tararan's shadows were next to go. Then, a Surprise Zombie that looked like a bear skin rug, and one that looked like a Wall. Two Wonder Garden Zombies that looked like squirrels, and two that looked like penguins. A surprise zombie that look like a jack-in-the-box. The trio of small zombies, Gyoro, Nin, and Bao; and, to round out the numbers, three more Surprise Zombies and three more Wonder Garden Zombies. In the end, twenty zombies had lost their shadows. But Moria was about to gain them all.

His body contorted as new shadows entered. "Kishishishi! Kishishishi! Kishishishi! Kishishishi! KISHISHISHI! KISHISHISHI!" He took on a monstrous new form, with claws for hands and feet, even more pronounced sharp teeth and fangs, horns growing from his head, a greenish tinge to his pale white skin, replacing the faint blue one might have been able to argue had been there before. He was about forty percent taller than he was before, and with an even amount of additional fat.

"Shadows Asgard! Now, I encourage you to find me! I won't go down without a fight!" In order to prepare for a surprise attack, Moria covered himself in a layer of armament haki.

Max shadows is 10 at 100 mastery and 15 at 120 mastery. Lasts maximum 5 turns, and afterwards drains the user of strength and vitality equal to amount they were boosted for equal amount of time. (Requires 100 mastery)

*RP Host twist: Moria can use despite his stats, and can use 20 zombies in this instance.
(a medium between the canon and the balanced RP version that also makes fighting Moria a bit more of a challenge)

Relevant haki usage is in bold.
41-60 Can coat entire body in invisible haki. Can use hardening on feet, hands and weapons.
