Post by The Valtiari on November 11th 2014, 9:45 pm

Nothing good ever came from a visit by the Valtiari. Their name became more and more well known as they picked up more jobs. With their repeated success their clientele blew larger and their revenue dramatically increased. The money was just being saved for a larger project in the future, the siblings were not very materialistic people but the money did come in handy when needing to get them out of any trouble with the law. Where threats and displays of power failed money always prevailed as the most effective 'power'. Their latest target though proved to be an interesting one. The employer, per usual, wished to remain anonymous but provided explicit detail on the target which in turn lowered their price. The more information that they would have to gather on their target, the more expensive the hit would become. This time their work would bring them to the beautiful mountains in Malibu, California.

They were walking along the Pacific Coast Highway very casually, following an odd device that their employer had given them. This thing would apparently help them locate their target. The dot was moving every so often, but nothing too dramatic. The three of them stayed close together and kept themselves as in sync as possible as to not alert the individual of their presence. They have had encounters with sensory type metahumans in the past which quickly gave away their location and numbers. With staying synced together, it would hopefully create the illusion that there is only one of them. Soon they moved from the ocean side of the road closer to the mountains and eventually entered the more complicated terrain.
Unfortunately this device failed to show a differentiation in height, just a general location. For this, Giovanni took high into the sky and began to scan below while Valentina and Yvvone stayed on the ground level. It took quite a while before they could triangulate a location. For a short moment they had thought their target discovered them as the dot began to move very quickly in very random patterns. It did eventually slow, but then remained in a single position. The siblings assumed that their target had in fact discovered he was being tracked. There were no civilians that could be seen and there were no restrictions that had been put on this assassination, so they were going to start off fast and loud.

Valentina stayed hidden as well as she could for the time being. Yvvone began to erect a barrier around their target who was sitting on a cliff apparently just looking off into the distance. None of the three could blame him, for it was a fantastic view. The barrier was a translucent blue color that enclosed their target on all sides, simultaneously Giovanni came into view from above and created three large bird constructs. Releasing them, they quickly honed in on their target and would move at impressive speeds. If their assignment still remained inside the barrier, Yvvone would open up a small gap in the barrier on the top, left, and right sides in order to let in the explosive birds and then close them off as soon as they entered to keep the detonation concentrated. In the event that this individual managed to avoid the barrier, the three birds would still seek after him while Yvvone kept a close eye on his movements. Giovanni would not wait until the birds made contact with their target, but instead would place thems within the blast radius and detonate them as close as he could get them hopefully catching the opponent off guard. He would also only detonate one at a time, in the event that one went off but failed to cause significant damage. The other two would be standing by in order to try and finish the job. If need be, Yvvone would create a small hovering platform in order to keep an eye on the prize so to speak, and Valentina would do what she could to watch as well while also staying hidden. Their target was Sean Michael Atterrius. And if he was half as powerful as their employer described him, then The Valtiari siblings would have to pull out all the stops in order to make this a successful mission.

Slow, that was one way one could have described the day Sean was having, and for the most part he could not argue something like that. For the most part the house felt empty, Jordan and Mike doing whatever it was they did, Shael doing about the same and Silus out with his friends. It seemed almost everyone was out doing their own things, Zell having been missing for a long time and that left Sean alone for the most part. Not that you would hear him complain about it, Sean wasn't the type to bemoan his misfortunes very often, and today would not be the exception to that. Instead of moping around his home, he would simply do something to occupy himself until that situation changed. For the most part this involved a lot of walking around Los Angeles, taking advantage of rarely ever getting tired to its fullest. A lot of walking, enjoying the whole day and things of that nature. It all started with lunch, Sean getting himself a cheeseburger, and devouring it much like someone that had not eaten anything in weeks, even if that were not the case.

The rest of the day consisted of doing nothing really, until of course he decided to...well he was not sure what he was doing. His mind had trailed off around halfway through the walk, and before he knew it he was sitting on the edge of a cliff, legs hanging over the edge and looking out. A low sigh escaped from his lips as his eyes would close for a moment, a small breeze washing over him as a few gulls wpuld cry out in the distance. The mind would nearly drop off into sleep, until the sound of something caught his attention, something whistling through the air, after a considerable boom. Eyes shot open, as Sean's hand pressed on the ground and propelled him to a standing position, eyes falling upon what loked like bird's flying towards him at a speed too fast for him to react to. ”Oh shit.” Sean muttered, and within an instant an explosion would ring out, throwing him through the air with considerable force. Much like a rag doll he would fly through the air, slamming into the barrier that had been formed it seemed to keep him in check, before falling downward from the cliff.

”okay...ow.” Sean growled, xenogens already considering how he could best deal with what had happened, and within a matter of seconds they would react. Wind whistled past his hair, as his body altered at a rapid pace, strength building, along with more important factors. Within an instant, he would stop mid fall, and with a jerk he would begin to ascend, seemingly already oriented with how this whole flying things worked. These little xenogens were really useful now that he thought about it. Within a matter of seconds, he would land upon the edge of the cliff that he had been thrown from, though it had for the most part been destroyed by the mysterious assassins. Silver orbs would dart about, as Sean removed something from a holster on his thigh, one hidden under his shorts. A handle that with a click would extend into a glowing yellow blade, humming softly within the air. ”Just my luck I guess.” He muttered, cracking his neck and stepping through the large dust cloud thrown up.

It was a direct hit. Yvonne's shield held its shape but had cracked at some points around it. This was obviously only the beginning, as their target recovered from the blast quite easily. Yvvone fixed the barrier up, keeping him contained, but also began to shrink it pulling into a cube form that remained hovering over some of the mountains. Inside of the barrier, smaller cubes began to emerge from the walls. These were adored with spikes which began to launch themselves towards Sean. Seeing that he had been able to withstand a head on blast from Giovanni, it would take some time to tear him down.These spiked cubes would fly around in random patters trying to scrape up this man even just a little. There were only about five or six of them at a time, and once he saw the progress he was making (or lack there of) he introduced a new trick. After they zipped past Sean, the spikes would fire themselves from the cubes just as an added offensive tactic in order to make them that much more difficult to dodge. Yvvone and Giovanni had noticed the sword that he had revealed, it was clearly not an ordinary sword and definitely not something they wanted to do close combat with. That was Valentina's department. She was still hiding away keeping an eye on the progression of the battle waiting for her time to strike. The two brothers did have him in a good position for the time being.

And now even still, Yvvone wished to increase the difficulty against their target. This time required his brother's abilities. Giovanni released a blanket of his energy that slowly dropped itself over the cube Sean was presently confined in. At first, the purple pearlescent energy blocked their view inside of the cube but the two energies began to mesh and the blanket became more translucent. With this now inplace, Yvvone and Giovanni worked in sync to increase the lethality of the spiked cubes. Now when a cube was created it was coated with Giovanni's explosive energy. If they came into contact with Sean, they would detonate instantly. And if he dodged the spikes would still fire out, also exploding on contact. The two of them hovered on creations of their own energy on either side of the prison. It was still a decent size, at a few hundred square feet but Yvvone would continue to shrink it periodically to give him less room to dodge. If this trio wanted to come out victorious against this opponent they would need to keep up with the full power assaults, because the moment they let up it could spell disaster.

Sean should have prepared for hell, because that seemed to be what he was getting in this thing. Either someone really wanted to fight him, or really wanted him dead, but he could not quite tell. Regardless, his adaptation would help with this situation, so long as he kept on his toes, which was what he planned to do as the now enhanced vision would take care of the issue of blond spots. One thing that he noticed was that the field around him was beginning to shrink, which meant that he would be fighting with less and less room to maneuver, unless of course he went to break out and fight in the wide open space, rather than being corralled like some kind of cattle. His body was prepped to make the run, but before he could do so, it seemed that more of the attacks would come at him in this steadily shrinking area.

Fingers would clench around the hilt of his weapon as he prepared to move, trying to keep every single attack in perspective but he lacked the highly advanced mind like Zell to calculate every little detail, which meant he would have to act purely reflexive. First the threat was multiple spiked cubes, which meant many things, like them being used to impale him up close or by extending the spikes, though what they would do he was sure to find out soon enough. They were easy enough to dodge only requiring a few flips and such, but the spikes were something that he would have to look out for, firing out from the cubes at him with a deadly accuracy. Sean cursed under his breath as he would land on the ground with a thump, spinning around to avoid a few spikes that were aimed at his abdomen, letting the blade whip around to sheer through some of the energy constructs..

It seemed like a simple maneuver, but even with advanced reflexes and combat knowledge, he found himself inconvenienced by the sheer number of the spikes that had been launched from the constructs. One had glanced off of his shoulder, irritating the flesh along that area, and even drawing a small red line that bled in his skin. The damage was minute, but enough to annoy him, yet that allowed his xenogens to adjust his body enough o the damage that it would likely be receiving. So hopefully he would not have to worry about constantly having these things just cutting away at his skin, but then again that was just a hope, rather than the absolute truth. Now more and more of the spiked cubes would begin to form within the cube, meaning that more of the annoying shooting spikes would be present.

Sean rolled his eyes rather annoyed, and prepared to react, eyeing the fringe of the cube and knowing what he must do. Without wasting any time, he would dash forward, appearing like a blur to the untrained eye as he would attempt to outspeed any attack that would be thrown at him, the whole world blurring around him but enhanced reflexes still enough to allow him to keep up with everything that was happening. Honestly, with how small the cube was, he found that he reached the edge within a second or two, rather than whatever it would take with his normal speed, blade flashing through the air as he heard what sounded like explosions from the spikes launching out, ones that he had narrowly dodged. The blade coursing with aether would slash out at the barrier, cutting through it with little issue, and followed by a few more he would rapidly attempt to jump through before anything else would be able to hit him.

Giovanni and Yvvone's tactics were working by keeping him occupied, but they were not causing enough damage. This was an excellent assessment of this man's agility, he seemed to surpass Valentina's level in skill though with three opponents it should all even out and the Valtiari should end up on top. Their target soon went to make an escape form their impromptu prison. Valentina was standing at the ready and as Sean sliced through the barrier, she had launched herself towards the man aiming to connect a kick with his stomach. Aiming more so to catch him off guard rather than to damage him.
If she managed to make contact, she would use his body as a spring board to send herself back dow to the ground as Giovanni would be launching an explosive bird towards him. If Valentina did not hit her target, she would continue past him onto a platform that Yvvone would create at a safe distance. The barrier that had been sliced through would dissipate, while the two brothers coordinated another attack. Yvvone began to materialize another barrier around Sean. It took a little bit of time to get together, but they were expecting their target to take advantage of this and try to maneuver out of the closing walls. Yvvone made it so that five of the walls of the cube appeared first that way the remaining open side would encourage him to exit that way. Hopefully just by reaction that way less thought went into his actions. Giovanni had concentrated a heavy amount of his explosive energy and fired it in a solid beam towards Sean. With Valentina now part of the battle The Valtiari Trio will be able to fight with the full force of their combined powers.
