Chitinous carapace crackles under the impact of the mighty dai-tsuchi and the oni spawn howls in pain spewing acidic bile over one of it's brethren. The other spawn lashes out and claws the wounded creature in the throat. There is some gurgling and then a whole lot of spasming.

Akio steps past the beast intent on locating another target. He feels the ground shudder before he sees it and quickly turns to size it up with his good eye. It is larger than the last one and has a number of broken arrows sticking out of it's side and neck, signs of previous battle experience. It opens its slavering jaws to reveal the glint of an unfortunate samurai's katana nestled in between its teeth. It lunges.

Kaede jerks his blades free of the dying creature and catches Ebizu's eye. The Crane nods at him to follow and then heads left around the perimeter of the cavern. There are some rock outcroppings that provide cover and the samurai rests his back against one of these and whispers to the Monkey.
"There are others fighting in here. Do you hear that bellow, it must be the Lion. And look, there is a glow on the far side that is reminiscent of his no-dachi. What do you think?"

Kiyoshi is a calm stone in the midst of a rushing stream. Somehow he has focused himself to the point where the spawn seem not to notice him, or if they do they forget him again. The moment is right, an oni spawn rushes past to pounce on Nik'rr'tck, oblivious to the deadly Fox.

Nik'rr'tck caresses his gift gently and then scampers up the wall to gain an advantage in height and survey his surroundings.

The spawn is filleted by Kiyoshi's blade as it runs by. From chin to loin, a deep cut between the chitin and bone opens the spawn like a gutted fish.

QUOTE
Bushido is realized in the presence of death. This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death. There is not other reasoning.

Kiyoshi has often heard these words, and while he may never believe them, for the first time, he can at least understand them.

"I think the fortunes may be smiling on us, that our paths converge again in a place like this. If Matsu-san claiming his sword back from Reijiro-san, that is between them... For now. Though It's more likely in a place like this, that they are fighting a more important battle. I say, we let duty come before honor, matching steel against our common enemy." Kaede switches two a two handed stance with his katana, expecting a greater need for strength and precision in the fight before him.

"Haha, a more worthy opponent! But not worthy enough to make an end of me!"

The great hammer lashes towards the oni's gut.
