He then turned to Veronika and gave her a weak smile... "So uh... glad to see you pulled through... I wonderred if what I managed to get out, before passing out was enough to save you, it definatly looks that way..." I still can't believe how much power that mage was able to force past my defences, his technique, his flow of mana, I must practice my technique and master things such as that...

''Well... when that bolt struck you, it kinda got burnt out I'm afraid.''

First the group met with a female Kigen soldier. This was already unusual as from what Domovoi heard about Kigen, female soldiers were very rare there since Kigenese women had no rights. She was apparently looking for her father, which was a funny coincidence as Raquel was looking for her own father. Despite Raquel's request though, the woman- named Eriya- refused to join the group.
Which is quite a shame because we could use another soldier here to help establish order and discipline. Ah well. Looks like I'll have to do it on my own. But now...back to the attack.
The attack. They had been ambushed by that shady group again. Things were made trickier when they brought hostages this time. They were Rodrigo and some people he didn't know. Rodrigo managed to break free and help fight and the group was driven off again. All in all, everyone who ambushed them was dead except for the swordsman, who was now their prisoner.
Unfortunately for Domovoi, the amount of arrows and spells being thrown around proved too much for Miskavolv to handle and he flew up in the air as fast as possible and high enough for Domovoi to get a good view on the battle without orders. Domovoi tried desperately to get back to the battle but Miskavolv refused to come back down until the action was over.
When they landed back down, Domovoi gave Miskavolv a look of pure rage and walked off, resolving to calm down and noted to himself to find an appropriate punishment for the disobedient wyvern. People were getting healed up and Domovoi saw one of the hostages had a staff on him.
Hmmmm....he could prove most useful to us. He's certainly not any friend to the group that's been harrying us, that's for sure. With that, he approached the young man.
"Hey! You over there!" Domovoi called out. "It must've been scary to be held hostage by a group of individuals like that. You have a staff here and I'd like to know what you're planning on doing after you're done patching some of us up. Which is greatly appreciated by the way. I'd like you to join our group and help us out if you don't have any plans."
Meanwhile Miskavolv knew he went too far. He couldn't help it though. The previous fights had been so rough and there were so many spells and arrows coming close to him. Plus he was hungry and Domovoi hadn't been feeding him as well as he should have. Walking off sulkily, he couldn't see the cat nearby. Heading towards the wagon, Miskavolv parked himself right by it and began making odd moaning and growling sounds in hope someone would realize he was hungry.
Upon hearing the cries, Domovoi made a face like someone spat in it and shook in rage for a bit before he blinked rapidly and regained his composure.
"Excuse my wyvern over there. He's...an oddball. A disobedient oddball."
Odd that NOW he panics. Doesn't change anything. He's not getting any of his favorite foods for awhile.

Almost everyone in the fight had been gravely injured and, even though she had been able to heal most of them, a few were still limping around painfully. It made her feel almost as sick as the bodies and blood covering the ground. Sooner or later someone was going to end up dead, there really was nothing she could do about it, and although there were a few she didn't care much about, losing a team member would weaken the group in combat and morale. At least she could console herself with the fact that two of the highest risks were directly under her supervision, but still, that wasn't much.
"Gytha, Amon," she called out to the two nearby. "Can you two come over here for a moment? I need to speak with you." She'd speak with those two first, then Raquel later if she didn't say something to the group about it herself. Things needed to shape up soon or the merchant's little band of mercenaries wouldn't remain intact much longer.

"I guess I'm feeling better ... I need to stop using my arm as a shield though." he tagged on to the end, looking his arm over. His coat would need mending. He wasn't keen on buying a new one even if he did eventually find the money to do so. It has more sentimental value then he was ever going to let on to anyone at present. With that he was beginning to wonder if there was any sewing supplies. Mending was a skill he couldn't live without having so few clothes of his own to wear. Unfortunately the last of his thread was used up on the last patch up job. He still had a needle and the small razor he would use to cut thread however, so he supposed all he needed was new thread. He was fine for now though and would just ask Raquel about it later.
Synthia soon called him and Gytha for some reason. He wasn't sure what it was about but he would comply, if only to not be difficult at a time like this. Once he reached her he waited. He couldn't decide whether or not to wait for Gytha before saying anything.
"An axe? Well I figured we might end up in a bad situation like this at some point so I bought enough defensive weapons for anyone who might want some. Swords, lances, axes, etctera. If you want to try one on for size be my guest. I'm a bit distracted by all this disarray though." she said noting the pure carnage. Dead enemies strewn about, and injured allies gravitating toward the wagon. Victory never seemed to be easy on the eyes. She wasn't sure why she expected things to turn out any different, but just once, she wanted to see a relatively flawless victory, with injuries on their side minor enough or few enough for them to brush their shoulders off and get moving again.
While Rodrigo waited for Boris to wake up, eight horsemen approached in the distance. Ursian patrols. Six cavaliers armed with swords and lances and two scouts armed with swords and bows. "Well they sure took awhile." Rodrigo noted. "Don't worry, I'll let them know what's going on, just none of you guys do anything stupid here. Until further notice, this guy's one of you." he said pointing to Boris. I can't get any information out of him if they drag him back to Ursaea and throw him in prison so this is going to have to do for now. he thought to himself, standing up. He began walking to the rear of the group and past the wagon so he would be the first to greet the patrol.

(I have 1 point left, bitches. Who wants it? No one can have it, haha!)

Maw managed to scamper away before the wyvern noticed her. That was good. Now, where were those fuzzy-tailed inland-rats?

“You two are of the few relatively uninjured right now, so I thought it was a good a time to discuss it as any. I’m going to talk to Raquel later as well, so if you have any comments about this you’d like to be passed on, I can do that too, unless you want to tell her yourself of course,” she said, and stood up, cracking her neck and back as she stretched a little. “Alright, I’m done talking. Amon, how’s your arm?”

He first turned towards the staff user that had approached him. "I think our mage got most everyone, if you see anyone who's still wounded, then go ahead and help them... but otherwise I think you should talk to Raquel, who's the young lady over there." He motioned his hand towards Raquel. Because I have no clue who you are and you should probably talk to the person in charge before you just submit yourself to the group. He then to the sword user that had also addressed him. "Well, if you couldn't tell by the piles of enemy injurred and the fact that you're still alive..." and your just stupid, Gytha atleast shows she can be intelligent, she's just brash, but you, not so much yet.

If I was bein' reckless, that would've meant I hadn't thought through me options. Well, I did and it was the best thing t' do. I can get up and keep fightn', but I can't say the same fer Synthia or Raquel. So I have t' fight fer them. Gytha thought to herself before her smile spread across her face and she asked the mage, "Ye have a mend staff, aye? Does it mend clothes?" An honest question.

No need for these, the lancer thought, taking the swords Boris was carrying and tossing them aside one of the late attackers, before looking back towards the approaching cavalry. They were cutting it close. "... Would someone mind patching up our unfortunate 'friend' here? He's still breathing, but that could change if we don't heal him soon."
