      After quickly checking to make sure the Major truly was incapacitated, Ansel leapt from the tree and took off in the direction of the dock. "I'm getting too old for this' he thought while sighing, but feeling the boy's slow breathing, he doubled his pace determined to make it before the Grimm got to them. He hadn't gone 100 meters when an ear-piercing squeal pierce the night, whipping has head back Ansel saw the major spinning towards him, its spines screaming bloody murder. Ansel leapt sideways, but not soon enough, the attack brushed his shoulder and sent him flying back towards a tree. Clutching the boy in his arms, Ansel took the full brunt of the collision with his back, there was a cracking noise and he screamed out in pain. He collapsed to the ground breathing hard; he had used up most of his aura cracking the Major's armors, and after that blow had almost none left. He tried to get up, desperately trying to catch his breath. Then the Major was upon him, quickly seizing Ansel's arm in its jaws, crushing bone and rending flesh. Ansel screamed in pain, frustration, and despair. He had failed and now both he and the boy would die. The world was slowly growing darker, his life's blood flowing out from the wound and his eyes losing focus. Suddenly, things started getting brighter, "I must be approaching the afterlife' Ansel thought with despair, shame clawing at his mind at the knowledge of his failed mission. He opened his eyes a small crack expecting to see the great beyond, but to his surprise, the light was coming from inside his robe. The sudden light had surprised the Major and made it back off a few steps, it now eyed Ansel with a cautious eye, as if making sure nothing strange would happen. "The boy' Ansel whispered, "This must be his doing'. Ansel quickly opened his coat, wanting to see what was going on with the boy. The child was still fast asleep, but was emitting a strange blue glow. The Major grunted, now believing there was not present danger, and charged straight at the two, its tusks ready to impale the two onto the tree. Suddenly the light surrounding the boy intensified, and then burst forth in a brilliant flash. Ansel covered his eyes, temporary blinded. He heard a slamming sound and a squeal, and afterwards a constant scuffling noise. He slowly removed his hands from his face, and was stunned by what he saw. Standing before him was the simulacrum of a man, formed of pulsating blue energy. It had stopped the Major's fierce charge, which was capable of plowing down even the strongest of hunters, with one hand which was fastened firmly around one of the creatures tusks. The Major was squealing and struggling, trying in vain to pull its tusk free. The strange being turned its head and looked at Ansel, then nodded its head as if in thanks.

      Turning back to the Major the being seized its head with his other hand, then with a squelching splattering sound, ripped the Major's tusk out of its head. Then, with a deft motion too fast for the untrained eye, plunged the tip of the tusk into the Major's right eye. The Major reeled back, squealing in pain, trying to get away from this new foe. The being stepped forward, the blue energy swirling in the palm of his hand. Seeing this with its one good eye the Major turned to run, but it was too late. The being thrust out his palm and struck the Major in the side, the resulting explosion blasted the Major through the forest, smashing through tree after tree like they were nothing but weeds. Squealing, the Major flew off, far in the opposite direction, vanishing from sight, a few moments later there was a low boom, and a cloud of dust rose above the forest, miles away from their current position.
      The being turned back to Ansel, then kneeled down, looking at the boy in Ansel's arms. It then reached out its hand and touched Ansel's wound, there was a flash of light, and Ansel cried out at the searing pain that soon followed. After the stinging had faded he looked down and was amazed to see his arm in perfect condition. The being nodded at him, then reached out its hand and touched the boy on the forehead then, like a mist being funneled into a vacuum, was sucked into the boy from the point of contact. The boy shifted uncomfortably in Ansel's arms, and then let out a long deep belch, smiled, and shifted into a more comfortable position.
      Ansel was stunned, "This boy is more important than we could dreamed' he thought, hope swelling in his breast "I must get him to safety, somewhere he can reach his full potential'. The hunter academies, those would be perfect. The boy would meet many good people, and hone his skills with the best of the best. With his goal firmly in mind, Ansel picked up the boy and began running in the direction of the docks once again.

      Ch1 Flickering lights

      Ansel was breathing hard, his back against a large oak tree. The Grimm were after him, and he knew he wouldn't elude them forever. Ansel was an old man with a long white beard and a bald head, he was rather muscular for his age, was wearing black robes, and had his head covered with its hood. It was a cold autumn night, deep in the wilds, far from any of the 4 kingdoms; he knew no one would come to help him. If he were alone he would have fought them to his dying breath with the weapon he had taken from the armory, a hybrid crossbow that could split into twin pickaxes, but he couldn't afford to now, what he had with him was far more important than his insignificant life. The boy lay asleep tucked inside his coat dreaming peacefully, completely unaware of the approaching peril. He smiled as he gazed at the boy's face, the young lad couldn't have been more than 3 years old. He was supposed to be the key to a bright future. How did things go wrong so fast?

      They should have been safe back at headquarters with the advanced Dust shield surrounding it. How did the Grimm break through after all these years? He knew the answer, knew it but refused to believe it. There had been a Grimm that was different from the others, one that looked human. It had ripped through the barrier like it was tissue paper, and led an army of Grimm to attack them. The rest of his comrades had stayed behind to make sure that at least that beast was dead. They were the best of the best, ex-hunters and ex-members of various combat factions throughout Vytal, "They will for sure be able to kill it' he thought, but the sheer number of Grimm that had poured into their headquarters had simply been too much. Their deaths were inevitable, but they would not be in vain. He would get the boy to safety and alert the rest of mankind to this new threat.

      His breathing had leveled now, and he felt able to run again. He once again took off through the dense undergrowth, sped along with the weight of his mission.

      Suddenly an ear-splitting howl split the night; they still sounded like they were a little ways off, but the Grimm would soon close in on him. He had to hurry to the docks; hopefully its force field would still be operational, if so they would be safe long enough for him to prepare a small boat for the both of them. The noises behind were getting louder and more varied, he heard the howls of Beowolves, Cries of Nevermores, and the roars of giant Baskervilles. He doubled his pace, praying he would make it to the docks before they were upon him.
      He dashed in to a clearing and stopped in his tracks. Standing before him was the king of the forest; a giant boarbatusk the size of a small house nicknamed "The Major', unlike normal boarbatusks the Major had protection on its stomach as well, making it practically a moving fortress. It had its eyes on him, its mouth salivating in anticipation of fresh meat. Ansel cursed his fortune; he couldn't hope to defeat a beast that had ended the lives of many veteran hunters. But he had one option left; he had taken a small supply of dust bolts with him he had fled headquarters, which were linked with a detonator he carried. "They wouldn't be able to harm the Major' he thought, "but they may be able to disorient it for a few minutes.' Just as this thought passed through his mind, Major charged at him full speed, determined to enjoy its meal as soon it could. Ansel dove to the side, making sure to cover the child with his arm, and quickly loaded the bolts into his crossbow. The force of the Major's charge made it very difficult for it to change its direction, but the beast quickly planted its feet and turned around to face his prey. But this split second gave Ansel the time he needed to quickly fire off all the bolts that he currently had loaded in the crossbow. The bolts were aimed at many of the gaps in the Major's armor and upon striking the hide, stuck to it. This seemed to confuse the major for a moment as it inspected the new protrusions sticking out of its body. Using this time, Ansel quickly stuck the boy into a more stable position in his robes. He had to get out of here quickly, the rest of the Grimm were getting close, and if they caught up all would be lost.

      With a thundering squeal the Major charged at him once again. This time Ansel was prepared. He leapt into the air then, using the trees as springboard, leapt onto the major's back. "I hear your hide is pretty tough' Ansel said, disconnecting his crossbow into the pickaxe form, "But smashing stuff like that is what these babies were made for', with that Ansel began striking the hard shell with the pickaxes, each blow infused with aura. The Major squealed as bits of its armor were chipped off, shaking and thrashing, trying to get Ansel off. The vibrations were so intense Ansel couldn't find the time to use his pickaxes any more, but he had done his job. There were now many small notches in the Major's armor, just large enough to fit a bolt. Using the momentum from the Major's thrashing, Ansel leapt from up onto a nearby tree branch, then fired off the rest of his bolts, each sticking in place to the holes he had made. The Major turned to look up at him and growled, preparing to smash through the tree trunk and bring Ansel to the ground. "To late piggy' Ansel said, triggering the detonator. Every bolt stuck on the Major exploded, filling the forest with multi-colored light. The Major squealed in pain and surprise as it's armor splintered, then it collapsed to the ground, apparently dazed.
