oh man, good times.
Libertad @ Flying Gem
Status: Jumping from one foot to the other in anticipation.
Hel @ Ice Gem
Ability: Snow Cloak
Eager to get started, Libertad immediately lifts off the ground and begins zooming in wide circles through the air, her form blurring as she picks up more and more speed. Shadowy copies of herself flash into existence as she goes, trailing behind her until, when she comes to a stop, nine identical Hawlucha surround her to descend gently back onto the floor of the balcony. Hel glances in annoyance from clone to clone, debating which one to target. Stupid diversion techniques. Libertad can't just face her directly, can she? Hel would demolish her in an instant. Choosing one of the middle Hawlucha at random, Hel takes a deep breath and exhales a cold stream of ice, the temperature around her dropping rapidly as her Ice Gem exudes a harsh, blue-white glow and then cracks in two. The beam goes straight through its target and the clone disappears with a cawing laugh as Hel curses to herself under her breath. Next time, she'll get that Hawlucha good.
As one the nine Hawlucha begin spinning and flipping through the air, the clones following the original's movements exactly in a dizzying display of athleticism and grace. Hel glances from one clone to another, searching intently for any hint that might give away the real Libertad, but even if she could find her she'd lose track of her immediately in the whirling cloud of Hawlucha and gleaming Flying Gem that proceeds to roundhouse kick her around her freshly-washed red bow, leaving an unsightly dirty footprint on her side. Furious, the Froslass scans the troupe of Libertads one last time, but they've started darting around even faster after discarding that Flying Gem, and it's more hopeless now than ever. Hel grits her teeth and focuses on sending a surge of crackling static to her crystal horns. With a sharp cry she releases two twin bolts of electricity that combine into one to strike the third Hawlucha from the right—which promptly disappears with a poof and a dramatic puff of smoke.
Laughter rises from the crowd of Hawlucha as Hel silently seethes. The Libertads take turns swooping tauntingly in front of her, making rude gestures and daring her to try attacking this one, no, this one, no, this one... Finally, Hel has had enough. She'll show that cowardly Hawlucha for daring to provoke her! The Froslass inhales again, meaning to unleash another line of ice and snow, but somehow she breathes in too hard and ends up falling flat on her back, smacking her head hard against the stone floor. Ugh! No! How could she have messed that up?! As Hel struggles to get back aloft and regain her bearings, Libertad's spiteful laughter echoes gratingly in her ears.
