[/blockquote][/blockquote]Xehanort raised his eyebrows from under his helm as Sephiroth neglected to respond. He searched the ground and spotted that two new beings had come to trespass. Was nothing sacred anymore? How were these philistines getting here anyway?
Xehanort did not recognize the two newcomers, but if they could put Sephiroth to silence no good can come of them. Xehanort stared at the two, particularly the one in red garb. He seemed to sense the darkness atop the skyscraper, consistently peering upward. Xehanort peered back, a sneer forming on his hidden face. Could he really see him? What an intriguing fellow. The other, he felt, was slightly less interesting. He didn't seem to have the same perception as his companion, but from what Xehanort could hear high above he was a commanding man with a strong voice. Neither should be delt with lightly.
In the background Xehanort heard another voice below, and out of curiosity he leaned himself slightly downward to observe yet another newcomer. A simple youth or something more? Xehanort of all people knew to never judge a book by its cover, the boy seemed simple and weak but then again many of the young people he has encountered over the years have proven themselves to be quite powerful. Was he no different, or was he an ignorant traveler? He thought the same about the boy in the cloak, and also to a lesser thought to the girl. Xehanort was always sure to be aware of every piece on the board, otherwise he may miss a victorious action in the future. He would have to make further observations while in battle, which luckily would not be far off.
Pieces on his side of the board appeared as well, a knight known as Gabranth would arrive close to Sephiroth, and with little delay he went on to attack the beings below. With a summoned companion, Gabranth caused chaos for the beings of light. Xehanort observed another being on a nearby rooftop, his other half. It would seem he had decided to jump into the fray directly as Xehanort has. Brilliant minds think alike, especially when they are virtually the same.
Xehanort used his position to watch each of the following events as they unfolded and locked them into his mind. Another beast was summoned, presumably to battle Garbanth's. The earth was shattered, throwing about a nearby truck like a child's plaything. The commanding man revealed an unusually large sword and attempted to do away with Garbranth. Xemnas jumped in early, protected Garbranth, caged in the commanding man, and proceeded to attack him from above. The girl moved to attack Xemnas. Sephiroth noted that this was enough to enact his participation and dived forth, attacking the girl as well as the man in the red garb. The boy in the cloak attacked, using the truck as leverage and burning most of it to a metallic crisp. The question now was where should he reveal himself?
Always take time to observe your surroundings, that way you may most firmly place yourself within a battle. After all that, the apparent best target was the cloaked boy. He appeared to hide helplessly behind the burned truck. Well perhaps helpless wasn't the best word, the boy was possibly preparing for another attack at that very moment. Most likely upon Gabranth, who was right on the other side of the truck. Best not let him go through with it.
At last Xehanort made his move, he floated away from the skyscraper and placed himself high above the cloaked boy. Darkness formed around him as he outstretched his hands and looked downward. With the utmost of swiftness, he made a single loop in the air before diving downward at a terrible speed. In a matter of seconds he would smash into the ground right behind the boy, shattering the earth around him (soul crush). He would then kick off from that position and roll several feet away. Swiftly he turned to face the boy's position, his keybalde now clenched in his hand, to see his handiwork.
There was a bit too much dust from his impact, he couldn't see anything. He had a quick solution for the problem, with a wave of his hand a black portal of darkness would appear a few feet from Xehanort in the direction of the truck. The portal quickly went to work, sucking in the smoke and anything else that would get too close to it (black hole). One way or another, Xehanort shall soon know the fate of the cloaked boy.
- (*)Xehanort flew above Zidane to attack.
(*)Xehanort used Soul Crush close to Zidane, ending Doomed Flight.
(*)Xehanort used Black Hole to suck in the dust from his impact and anyone else who is too close to it.
Soul Crush - 4 post cooldown: When ending Dooming Flight, Xehanort shall encase himself in darkness and slam into the ground, creating a powerful ten foot wide shockwave that shatters the ground around him. Will always activate Dooming Flight's cooldown period.
Black Hole - 3 post cooldown: Xehanort will summon a dark portal that will attempt to suck in nearby opponents. The suction of the portal is ten feet and is moderately strong. If they are sucked in, the opponent will be warped to 15 feet above the battle ground and dropped, causing moderate damage. Portal suction does not effect Xehanort. Portal will disperse in Xehanort's next post.
