They amplify their attacks, attempting to breach past the Revoltures to utterly destroy the Leshen.
Megan got knocked back by the explosion off of her own slash, giving her just enough time to avoid any major injuries from the wall of wings and beaks that came rushing at her. They still did damage, just not the same kind of damage that they might have otherwise done. As Megan got to her feet, she found herself tangoing with a surprisingly strong jagras. Or maybe she was getting weak — either/or, right there.
Regardless, she tried to put the jagras in a headlock, even though it had already gotten a good bite at her leg, and dumped the remainder of her mana into her revolver. She couldn't draw a bead on the leshen until she got the jagras under control, but damn if she wasn't about to give that thing the six-word-sentence of it's life.
The knight lunges in front of Baba, raising his round shield and creating a sun-shaped sigil in front of himself to let the flock break itself upon him. This is followed by a counterattack in the shape of a blast of light unleashed at Leshen from the shield.
As if called forth by Reyna thinking about her, Awkeff comes flying in on the wings of Dragon Aspect with a charged Infinity Sword, slam-dunking a mini-nuclear power attack on the Ancient Leshen's head.
The Ancient Leshen stumbles backwards for a moment, then starts to drop to its knees, its entire body violently writhing and spasming as it contorts, sinking into the ground and becoming a nest of roots with a deer/moose/elk skull stuck on top.
"Whew. Nice of you to wait until the very end to show up." Reyna takes off her Drachen helmet and wipes the sweat off her brow.
"Yes, because I was sleeping until now, like any reasonable person."
"Whatever, it's done. Now, if you don't mind, please look away."
She bends down over the Ancient Leshen's remains and stabs her camp knife into its neck, eventually carving its skull off with much time and effort. "I'll be needing its parts to make a weapon... in order to take out an even worse monster. Sorry, Miss," she says to Baba Yaga. "It's just how we Hunters operate."
Before anyone calls foul, the Ancient Leshen already had basically all of its breakable body parts broken, was hit by several ultimate attacks that involved a shitload of fire, and was a sitting duck. Awkeff was not simply that powerful, she basically just stole the kill with another ult-level attack.
Geralt would down some swallow, keeping back from the large beast... He'd begin considering using some oils, and then would have a rather... Bright Idea. Geralt would throw one of his bombs at the Carnifex, A samum bomb, In an attempt to blind it. Maybe this would help get his new ally out of the thing's grasp...
The oni would indeed be clipped by the attack, as his guard was meant to reduce damage, not completely prevent it. This would anger the oni, as the oni blindly lashes out with an anger wave, bringing its glaive in a sweeping arc infront of it. Most people would only hear a shout of sheer rage, but Chris, or anyone who could understand supernatural entities, would likely hear "Ow, Fuck! That Fucking hurt man! Nobody Hurts the O man! Take this!"
Zhu Tun She would indeed charge, Attacking with "Fatal sword" (Medium damage physical skill), It's momentum leading it to be what would usually be a goring charge... However, Due to not having very long tusks, and a rather pathetic horn, The Zhu Tun She would essentially just ram into the Carnifex like a little Drake watermellon Canonball.
Mothman would back up from the offencive after the most recent hit, taking some time to sift through chris's pouches for some medicine, as chris finishes focusing...
Chris Glares at the Carnifex, this thing which couldnt negotiate... And casts his spell. Agilao (Medium damage fire spell), with the additional focus in store. If this hits the carnifex, IT'S GONNA HURT!

The three PokÚpals take the time to sit down a little, though some are more tired than others. Seeing that Wendy's going to faint, Harenzo heroically catch her and not-so-heroically leave Tokza to her fate as she fall down.
Harenzo, I'm tired and hurt all over. Can we go home ? says the plant.
Harenzo look around and nods, fully lifting her off her feet and allowing Tokza to grab his ankle, he looks pretty pumped out whereas Wendy just look down, and Tokza... can't really see it since her face's pressed against the grass.
Erm... you're welcome for the fight. he says to Reyna and the others, before teleporting out.

Megan's Hyper Mode faded, and the sharp pains of battle came back to the forefront of her mind.
"Fuck, everything hurts..."
Having not used it, she retrieved the mana that she had dumped into her gun. She also realized that she still had the jagras in a headlock, and went to check if it was still hostile by placing a hand on the back of its neck.
"That was one hell of a wild ride. You alright, Reyna?"
The samum bomb does indeed cause the beast to flinch, dropping Thranix in the process. Thranix, coincidentally, was also blinded by the bomb, but he retained enough awareness of where the tyranid was to run in the opposite direction from it, into the main group of demons, Chris, and Geralt.
"I don't know what was in that thing, but I can taste metal in the air, so it must have been pretty unusual."
The Carnifex's chest received a wide, bleeding gash from the Oni's wild swing, and nearly fell over from the impact with the watermelon drake boar thing, but managed to retain some stability. It would have liked to cleave that little... thing that had just charged it in half, but it also could see shit.
Chris' spell hit the beast like a concentrated charge of weapons-grade promethium, causing the Carnifex to screech into the heavens like a demon. It could feel its carapace melting, its internal organs roasting... the very muscles, transmuting into ash.
Weakness Exploit — Fire'
It was knocked back a great deal from the eruption of flames, and then did something a bit odd — it stepped back further, and curled up, twitching. Was it... surrendering?
"... I don't like this," Thranix said, having rubbed most of the blinding light from his eyes.

Viserys soon arrives on the battlefield with his Blades Sword drawn... just in time to notice that the Ancient Leshen had already been dealt with. Feeling a little sheepish, the Nord Dragonborn returns his weapon to its sheath.
"Well then... since this overgrown spriggan is no longer a threat, we should probably get going, Fahliil Fahdon."

Baba Yaga nods to her. "Making sure every part of prey is used is sign of good hunter. I can respect."
Reyna points an accusatory finger. "You guys showed up right at the end, you have no idea how hard that was." She sighs. "I'm gonna go get this forged..."
Awkeff raises an eyebrow.
The Jagras Megan has breaks free from her hold. The red fades from its eyes as it slinks away...
"Apologies for that, Reyna, but Awkeff and I were asleep when you gave the signal. We've been rather busy making our own preparations lately, among other things."
Viserys looks over to Awkeff.
"Speaking of which, we still need to find that girl with the dragon-slaying sword."

Lucina dwell near the forest where the fight happened, clashing swords with Samsara for the sake of her training.
Reyna departs after an offscreen talk with Megan.
Awkeff sighs. "Yes. I'm going to go back to bed, though." And she's off.

Viserys takes notice of Lucina and Samsara's training session, surprised that the former was so conveniently nearby. Not that he was complaining, of course.
"I'll catch up with you in a moment, Fahliil Fahdon. Our search has just come to an end."
He approaches the two Shepherds, greeting them with a wave as he does so.
"Forgive me for interrupting, but there was something I wished to ask. My name is Viserys, by the way, you might remember me from that battle with Rathalos."
Edited by IchigoMontoya on May 18th 2019 at 2:26:35 AM
They stop in time, and Samsara glance at Viserys, before waving her hand.
Greetings, dragonborn !
Lucina nods to Viserys and look at Samsara, who nods back at her. She smiles and focus on him.
Hm ? What kind of problem would require my assistance, if I may be blunt ? You appear stronger than I am.

Noctillum, "Leshen's Grave" (Near site of leshen Fight)
Yusuke would be making his way over to the woods, with his painting supplies in tow, With airy flying overhead. He'd Notice Lucina, And run over quicker, airy taking interest in this... Development, Spying from above. Yusuke would stop, doing a quick bow towards lucina, saying "Lucina-Hime, I didn't expect to see you here. It's nice to see you in such a calm place." Airy silently judges those she's looking at from above... Maybe she's looking for allies, maybe she's Seeing if these people are dumb enough shmucks to fall in line for her scheming... Who knows.
While he didn't expect either Shepherd to actually know who he was, Viserys nonetheless nods to Lucina in return.
"My friend Awkeff and I have made enemies with a wicked Dragonborn named Farandare. We can hold our own against her despite the power she wields, but she's gained a toady in the form of an especially strong, bipedal dragon neither of us have ever seen before."
He points to the Falchion on Lucina's belt.
"Your sword is rather effective when used against dragons, correct? That's why I was hoping you could help me and Awkeff deal with Farandare's sycophantic pet. If it's not too much to ask, that is."
Edited by IchigoMontoya on May 18th 2019 at 2:52:39 AM
Hm, hello Yusuke. I was wondering where you were. she says.
We should try to put you in a squad. Once the Einherjars are back, we won't be able to just hang out alone.
Lucina does listen to Viserys and nod.
I've fought the beast twice, it would be an honor to assist you in a battle against it. replies the princess, smiling.
Smiling as well, Viserys extends a hand towards Lucina.
"A sword meant to slay dragons and experience with fighting this monster? I knew that seeking your aid was a wise decision."
Edited by IchigoMontoya on May 18th 2019 at 3:06:51 AM
Yusuke would look towards lucina, then towards the stranger, then would look back to lucina and samsara.
"Lucina-Sama, Samsara-Ojousama, are you heading off for battle? Would you mind if I come to help?"
Airy would be ever more interested in this... considering showing herself now... she'd then recognize samsara, and be even closer to revealing her presence...
Oujousama ? Is that a title in your world ? You can just call me Samsara if you like. she says, looking up and noticing Aery.
Lucina smiles but folds her arms.
However, this means that he knows that I can wound and kill him. I may not be able to easily reach him.

"Luckily, you won't be facing him alone. Another ally of ours will also be participating in this battle when the time comes, in addition to myself and Awkeff."
Viserys points in the direction of Sylvalum.
"See the area that's currently been transformed into a luscious forest? We've set up camp there if you ever need to talk with us. Speaking of Awkeff, she'll likely want to hear this bit of good news. Farewell for now."
With that, the Nord Dragonborn says goodbye to those present before departing from the premises.
Airy would calmly fly down, Smiling as she does so. She'd begin flying around by the group, and would then talk. "Sorry for interrupting, I just couldn't help to notice some brave heroes seeking to slay a beast. How noble!" If one could read airy's mind to some degree, One may notice that airy is essentially puking in disgust mentally at what she just said...
Yusuke would completely ignore airy, Much to airy's dismay. "I'm sorry, Samsara, I'm just so used to... Nevermind. I think I could factor in as a wild card to help you and lucina fight whatever foe which is coming... but if you'd rather I not, That's fine by me."
Heh, I'll never refuse allies of any kind ! says Samsara.
Lucina politely waves goodbye to the Dragonborn and eye the fairy in confusion.
Airy would fly into the middle of the group, still smiling while she hovers in place with her wings... somehow. Airy would then begin to talk.
"Sorry, I haven't introduced myself to most of you, Have I? I'm Airy. I'm a fairy of sorts. It's not everyday that you see such a strange group of such brave warriors where I come from!" Airy would begin twirling, and look away as she continues talking. As she's not facing anyone, she'd show signs of pained memories on her face... "I'd like to help you see this through, Seeing as people like you would try their hardest to do so no matter what!" She'd laugh a bit, before turning back towards the group. "I'm sorry if this is sudden, But could I please come with you?" Airy may have found something to gain from... finally.
Yusuke would set up his painting supplies, and would begin painting airy as she flies there...
