Oh, that's understandable. Well, we also have-
Then 20 transforms, and the three women are very weirded out, though Morgan seems more fascinated than anything by what had just happened.
Sir Robin, will you need help?
"I'm not sure," Robin replies right before getting elbowed in the face.
"I'm not sure how many of us would need to get involved, but this will have unintended consequences if we let it remain 1-on-1." Corrin lets her draconic blood flow through her as the final highlight of the weather kicks in - an instant rainstorm.
Blizzard (English Version)
She rushes in and morphs her arm into a lance-like appendage as she stabs Android 20, pinning him against the ground while Robin runs in to pull a role reversal on the bio-android and sap his vitality with Nosferatu! 20 responds by unleashing his energy in a purple spherical barrier that expands outwards with enough force to smack them away from him, though it doesn't deal much damage.
He then lands on his feet and calms himself, breathing in deeply, before slinging a green ki blast at Corrin from his fingers. It stops on impact with her and explodes, knocking her into the air as 20 then rushes for Robin, who halts him with an Arcfire that actually hits, catching him in the pillar of flame.
They all look at one another and Lucina is the one to go in this time, quickly heading for the fight. She decide to hang back and charge up on Aether. No spectacular effect on the weather, but the tip of her sword glows as the rest of it glows golden.
Android 20 emerges from the Arcfire with an excited grin, not noticing Lucina yet. He rushes at Robin again, but Corrin intercepts, ramming into him with her draconic helmet and wings manifested as she goes for a stabbing drill kick with her leg morphed into a lance. As she drags him along the ground, he grabs her leg and reverses the situation by swinging her in an arc and into the ground.
While he's doing this, Robin leaps up above his head and tries to catch him with a downwards swing of the Levin Sword.

Lucina wait for Robin to make his move and then rush head long with Aether, attempting to save him from a possible retaliation with a swift attack!
The Levin Sword-Aether combo nearly takes 20 out of the fight, but he still has stamina to spare.
His power surrounds him as he pulls his arms back in preparation for a final attack...
which Robin and Corrin don't intend to let him pull off. Robin leaps over his head, while Corrin runs directly at him, a familiar glow surrounding her.
Lucina follows their lead with a critical attack, attempting to stop him from pulling his stunt!
Android 20 prepares to unleash a Super Galick Gun, but his firing is interrupted by the crit which knocks him off his feet, then he gets spiked by another downwards Levin Sword swing, and finally...
"This ends here!" Corrin slams a hand on the ground as two pillars of energy erupt on either side of her, knocking Android 20 into the air. She fully transforms into a dragon which rears up and roars before unleashing a torrential whirlpool-like blast of water at the bio-android for massive damage!
When it ends, he no longer has the energy to keep going, and lies on his back as he reverts to human form - as does Corrin, coincidentally. "Whew... ya got me..."
"Wait, we actually did?"
W-well, that was more intense than I thought... well, good job everyone. Says Lucina. She then falls to the ground, but it seems to be because she poured all her strength into her attack. She sit up.
Hm? Well, I've "tangled" with someone with comparable abilities. I bet that this nice sir was holding back.
"Well, it's only natural," says Android 20 as he grunts and pulls himself up. "I didn't want anyone's blood on my hands. I was satisfied nonetheless."
"Indeed," says Robin. "I hope we all learned something from this."
Indeed. It wouldn't be good training otherwise, right?
"Yeah. I learned a lot, too." 20 pulls a capsule out of his pocket. "This is thanks. Don't open it in an enclosed space." He tosses it to Samsara, then vanishes.
"... Huh," remarks Corrin.
Samsara grab it and... kind of struggle with it because it's not exactly her tech. Morgan help out though, and the capsule opens, revealing it to be a table worth of food!
Morgan lick her lips. Oh wow, and I was feeling somewhat hungry!
Lucina curiously poke at some of the food. I'm still not used to food being so plentiful... well, let's warn the others.
Kakarotto quite easily judo slams the Devourer into the ground - and directly into a portal that closes right behind her. Moments later, she reemerges right above Kakarotto, just... straight-up trying to curb stomp him at extreme speed.
Kakarotto is smashed into the dirt.
"Ouch... nice one...!"
He tries to use his tail to snare one of her legs, rip her off her balance, and roll into a better position.
"Makes me kinda scared to think about how strong that Whis guy must be then.", Ninten says.
"So how strong are you then? Hm..."
His smirk turns into a mischievous smile.
"Oh, I have an idea. We could arm wrestle to compare how strong we both are! ... Well, if you're alright with that of course."
Morgan◊ is laying on the ground, on his stomach, reading a book. With Grima and Validar stuck in a meeting with Senator Lekain and some of the others, Aversa out scouting with some of the pegasus knights, and Niagara still on his mission, he doesn't really have anything do to. Not really in the mood to train, he instead chose to read up some more about the legends of time periods the other Einherjar are from.
Right now he's reading about the continent of Tellius, where Lekain comes from, and the legend of their goddess, while having a small stack of books to his side, the upper one about the continent of Jugdral, where Julius is from.
He pauses when he notices a shadow moving over him, and when he glances up, he's startled to find none other than Julius◊ himself standing there.
"A-ah! Prince Julius! I-I'm sorry!", he instinctively shouts out.
"Sorry? For what?" , Julius asks.
"... I don't know... but... I must've done something wrong if..."
"I personally seek you out?" , Julius asks, now looking amused, even moreso when Morgan timidly nods.
"You didn't do anything wrong, I assure you. I was looking for you, but I didn't want to interrupt." , he says as he picks up the Jugdral book.
"Inter... how long have you been watching me read?"
"About twenty minutes now." , Julius offhandedly says. "I see you're interested in our world's other time periods."
"Y-yeah. I figured this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about everything that came long before I was born."
"And why would you want to learn about that?" , Julius asks, glancing to Morgan.
"Why? ... I don't know. I can't really think of why. I'm just interested."
"Huh. So you're not out for some personal gain. You just like knowledge. Admirable."
"R-really?", Morgan asks, surprised that Julius, of all people, would compliment him.
"Yes. And it makes me see that you're the right choice after all." , Julius says as he turns away from Morgan.
"... right choice? For what?", Morgan asks, not seeing the manipulative grin that forms on Julius' face.
"Part of my plan to take out that meddlesome merchant and her man requires me to give one of a specific assignment. I brought it up with the rest of our makeshift council, and you ended up being nominated. We believe you'll have the best chance at success." , Julius says, after which he turns back around with a neutral expression.
"Me? And an assignment? What do you mean?"
"I'm not going to give you any details until we can discuss this further in private. For safety reasons. I'm certain you understand. Now, will you do me a favor and help me out?"
Morgan looks conflicted. It's not a good idea to just agree to something without even knowing what's expected of him. But he also wants to be useful to this group so that his family will be proud of him.
"I'm... a little surprised I was the one who got nominated.", he says, trying to fish for more details first. "I'm not even one of the strongest Einherjar here."
Julius chuckles and puts his hands on Morgan's shoulders.
"This mission doesn't require strength, but wit, intelligence, tactics." , Julius says. "Grima was quick to mention you."
"What? Wait, Mother was the one who..."
"She said she couldn't think of anyone better suited for the job."
Well, crap. All of his buttons got pushed. His mother would be guaranteed to be proud if he succeeds now, and it's not just some fight, but a mission that'd let him test his skills as a tactician. And who knows, if he has to go near Anna and co, he may be able to see Niagara again.
And that other Morgan as well.
"... What do I have to do?", he asks, and Julius looks evilly pleased.
The Devourer launches into the air before Kakarotto's tail can get a hold of her leg, turning to her opponent and opening a handful of large portals. Each fires a large beam of purplish-pink energy at the saiyan.
"Ummm..." Xion is put on-edge by the suggestion. "If you're sure... then okay. I'll do it."
Snake's Breakout Force has spread out over the city.
Snake◊ remains in the Ragged Flagon, specifically the Cistern chamber.
Ruby is in the main room of the Ragged Flagon, keeping watch as usual.
SHADE has been sent to the docks and fishery.
Willis is on standby in the Cistern.
Leon is monitoring the Bee and Barb.
Flynn has been sent to guard Mistveil Keep, the Jarl's palace.
Vanessa is keeping an eye out on the Temple of Mara.
And lastly, Aizen stands in the town center.
Ninten looks a little concerned.
"You don't seem to like the idea though. If you don't really want to do it, we don't have to. I'll leave it up to you."
Flynn waits at his station, Looking at the strange gauntlet on his arm, with the strange screen. He taps at it, going through various applications, before entering the Demon summoning program.
As he does so, A summoning ring appears, and, out of it, comes the Skeletal Spaniard himself, Matador.
Matador gives a quick nod to flynn, before acting as, despite not literally, a second set of eyes, aiding flynn's guard duties.
Speaking of Aizen, he's sitting in his spot, looking all high and mighty, like he couldn't care less about what could be coming.
Xion blinks for a few seconds, then shakes her head. "Sorry, I was just worried about your safety. Let's do it."
"Ow! Ow! OW!"
Fucken... whatever, he powers through. Taking all the damage and being worn down, but going through with his next move.
"Big Kugelblitz Blast!"
He fires a terrifyingly dense orb of white energy at his opponent.
Willis◊ has a bunch of... capillaries spread around the area, monitoring his surroundings.
SHADE◊ has a bunch of monsters out. Coolio!
"About my... ohoh, I see. You're smack talking me.", Ninten says, now looking competitive. He walks over to a table and sits down at it.
"Right or left arm?", he asks, looking pumped.
The people outside should be able to see several shadows flying overhead. A quick look up will show them that it's a bunch◊ of◊ Cyber Angels◊. Which, these days, isn't too weird a sight.
But things may start to feel worrying when those Cyber Angels stop right above the town instead of flying further. It's hard to see from down on the ground, but they seem to be talking to each other.
One other Cyber Angel, the General,◊ then joins the group, holding something... papers, maybe? Anyhow, it joins in the conversation, gesturing to the maybe-papers, then pointing down at the town.
A nod between the Cyber Angels, and then all of them, save for the General, suddenly start soaring down, unleashing explosive shots towards the town. They're not even aiming at anyone in particular, just shooting at it.
As for the General, it slowly descends downwards too, but doesn't attack... yet.
Cyber Angel Soldier
Cyber Angel Officer
Cyber Angel Commander
Cyber Angel General
The Devourer braces for impact as the orb flies at her. However, instead of letting it hit, she holds out her hands, space seeming to warp between them - and right in the path of the shot. As it goes between them, it stops. The Devourer strains to hold it in place as she grins at Kakarotto.
"Go ahead and keep this one, kid." She quips, her smug tone not wavering even through clenched teeth. Suddenly, she extends her arms, and with one more exertion of energy, she sends the orb flying away from her - and right back at Kakarotto's face!
