Well, this was in no way a good thing, but Stone could manage. She ducked forward and turned her momentum into a slide, passing delicately beneath the big ball of fire as she drew out Calvin's bow and got her eyes on the big guy. Maybe her own weapons weren't effective, but as she rolled back to her feet she drew Calvin's bow out of her terminal, along with an odd-looking arrow. She drew back the string and centered it right on the Volcanic Lord, letting the archer's ingenuity fly as the Sonic Arrow lanced through the air directly towards the Heartess.

"Let's see you shrug this one off, big guy."

Edd took a breath and then leaps back with a great amount of precision leapt back into what appeared to be thin air, or a cave wall...before a massive blast of smoke and rubble poured forth...revealing a mechanical titan!

Edd leapt into the open cockpit, closing it behind him as he initiated startup...Looking as the screens turned on and scanning the area. He let his mind open...yes, he could see it! Edd's eyes glowed green as he took a stance...preparing the fist of the Rider. "I can handle the big threats, now. Just focus on Calvin!" He said, hitting a few switches and flaring the jets on the Rider as energy bolts began to charge on its fist. "Plasma Stake!" He shouted, the three poles on the Rider's fist beginning to glow with an awesome power...the fist heading straight for the Trickmaster!

Oh, that long. Kantia shielded her face from the debris that was the shattering rock. Her eyes opened once more to look out over the edge... There was so much going on that she couldn't comprehend all the moving bits anymore. She could only concentrate on the mass of Heartless that was slowly thinning around her. The mech was another thing she could focus on, but couldn't afford to. Damn it. She was no help at all...

Bastian flared his wings instinctively as the cliff face began to give way under his feet, and prepared himself for the inevitable drop.

It didn't come.

Half-folding his wings, he looked down, at the almost abnormally neat barrier between him and the rest of the cliff face, and at the massive heartless flailing in the flames below. Apparently fire wasn't enough to hurt the thing - something to remember, he supposed.

At least, he would've remembered it if the robot hadn't come through the wall at that moment.

"Shards-!" He shielded his face with his arms as rubble and smoke filled the chamber, and peered into the chaos in time to see the massive machine engage the disabled Trickmaster. It was... on their side.

He leaped off the cliff, curving his flight over the pit of fire, briefly close enough to see the faces of the people. Men, women, all were alike in being contorted with pain, and he prepared to break away from the pit-

Wait. Wasn't that...

He dropped, claws and talons scraping as he latched onto one of the spikes, ignoring the heat trying to burn its way through, and loomed over the face of the one half-familiar person he'd seen within the crowd. Eyes burning red, he shouted what he could over the screams and crackling of the pit.

"Your name!"

The sonic arrow Stone fired dissolved in the air, becoming a small mass of kinetic energy that slammed into the fat Heartless's clear belly with an explosion of displaced air, actually partially disrupting the hellfire within the pit below. The Heartless was thrown back violently, actually bouncing off the far wall, before careening back; and, in continuing the humiliation, the staff it had thrown finally returned, slamming into it as it's feature-less face contorted as much as it was able to.

It was left a bit dazed in the air for a moment, but recovered quickly enough, and inhaled deeply, before blasting out a stream of fire, sweeping it along the cliff-face toward the wolf-girl, seeking revenge for what had just happened.

Kantia was in luck, in that most of the minor Heartless had been taken out simply by attrition on the part of the Interferences. There were a few Globes left, and a single Jazz, but they still pressed on as much as they could even with this disadvantage. The Globes jumping toward her while the Jazz spun up some fireballs and charged at her.

As for the mecha, it was doing exactly what one would expect of a giant robot, smashing up just about everything in its path. It was also the first thing since the falling rock to do any appreciable damage to the Trickmaster as it lay trapped. It also, however, managed to free it simply by smashing said boulder.

The boss Heartless wasted no time in taking advantage of its newfound freedom, it's long, stretchy limbs wrapping around the mecha as it's batons came alight. Fire couldn't hurt the Heartless, but overheating any machine rarely ended well for it... or anyone inside it.

-----------

Having been surrounded by the screams of his fellow Damned and the roar of a fire that was larger than a warehouse, it shouldn't have been too much of surprise that Calvin had remained ignorant of the battle even with all the noise it was making.

However, when the dark angel that was Bastian suddenly latched onto the spike impaling him, his eyes shot open. They could barely see, basically being boiled in his skull from the heat around them, but they were sharp enough to discern the basic shape before him. And his ears remained sound enough even throughout the roar.

For the first time since his death, he felt hope.

His voice was that of one who hadn't spoken in ages, dry and gravelly and horse from screaming and being burned, but he still managed to speak as he was called.

"Calvin," his tortured throat spewed forth. "My name is Calvin Allen Roberts!"

Okay, fire. Shit shit shit shit. Just out of pure desperation Stone brought time to a stop once more, letting the shockwave of superheated air come to a halt mere feet in front of her as she vanished again, running and warping around the edge of the crater until she could get to a better vantage point. She made it about a quarter of the way around before the accelerator shut down again, but from the noises it was making she wasn't going to push it like that again for a while. Still, hopefully it was enough. All she could do was hope she could pierce this thing's hide and she was running dangerously short on backup plans, but with a cocky smile she tucked Calvin's bow away and brought her own enormous rifle back out with a single round in the chamber, packed with a little extra on the tip to hopefully punch through this thing's defenses. She didn't even bother getting in position, she just braced one foot back and fired straight at the thing's head.

Edd saw as Kantia was overwhelmed and his heart surged, his eyes alit with fire as he shouted "PK Shield!" An energy field overwrapping her...Moving the sticks inside the mecha to struggle...His psychodriver abilities beginning to surge into the Rider. "Let's go...let's go..!" He filled his newfound psychic power into the slash rippers. "T-LINK RIPPERS!" A roar as the blades flew from their hidden compartment out...wreathed in psychic energy, spinning bladed drones. "PK Thunder!" He said, and the T-link rippers became wreathed in a powerful energy...They flew onto the back of the Trickmaster and acted as two massive chainsaws at its head, ripping into it with psionic might as Edd breathed hard...a grin.

"Heat..? Heat doesn't scare me..!" He said, trying to channel the heat out as the Rider's systems began to overpower...
"I was born in texas!"

Kantia blinked as the barrier popped up around her. Several balls of fire collided with the barrier and she was safe from harm... She sighed. Kantia looked around with her blade drawn now, the Heartless were close enough for her to fight in hand to hand.

After coming to these worlds, fighting in close quarters was such a common thing that she had developed a sort of style. Her blade glided along and through the Heartless. A deadly dance.

Calvin.

The name was familiar. It brought back memories of sun on snow. And it was a name he'd heard the others speak. Was this the person they were looking for? Was it a coincidence?

Azphel blast it, it was good enough. Any longer and his claws would start to burn.

"This'll hurt!" He shouted back, wings spread as he found a fragile balance on the spire that let him free up his hands. From his cube he pulled a precious bag of odella powder and held it between his teeth. Taking care not to impale himself on the spire in the process, he dug his claws into Calvin's shoulders, and spat out the bag. The powder spilled, dancing on the heat of the lava lake, and with one - two - three wingbeats, he ripped Calvin free.

The odella was already scorching to uselessness in the heat, and thermals alone weren't enough to carry the two of them out of the pit entirely, especially with a second person in toe. But it was enough to get him to the shore of the lake, thankfully further from the showdown than near it. He spat out the emptied bag, and then sifted through his cube for his strongest potion, one that he poured unceremoniously on Calvin's wounds.

"Can you move on your own?" He asked, drawing his sword. Chances were it wouldn't be long before something noticed them.

A Boss Heartless was not one that was easily defeated; that was generally how it worked in a hierarchy as simple and basic as theirs: the ones that died slowest were the ones in charge. It was also why they were generally most effective when there was someone or something directing their actions, given the general lack of higher thoughts in all but the most powerful of Heartless. As such, though it probably could have managed to get out of the way of Stone's shot before the wold-girl fired, it simply didn't have the mental capacity to plan that far ahead.

The bullet struck it dead center in the 'forehead', actually seeming to explode on impact. There was still no blood (Heartless didn't have a physical body, much less blood), but it still reeled back as one would have expected from something taking a head shot. And, after all the abuse the Heartless had taken, it twitched violently... before exploding into various of the tiny Fiery Globes; most of them falling back into the flaming pit, a few ending up impaled on the spikes as they did.

One down.

----

Whirling blades of lightning sparked and crackled through the air, the electricity arcing off them randomly even as they were directed to attack the Trickmaster, some of them even striking the various damned souls within the pit. Their screams were lost in the roar of the flames and the crashing of the electricity, but the Trickmaster's writhing was every bit as visceral. It was immune to all manner of heat and flame, but it held no defense against thunder and lightning, and the spinning tendrils of death were slicing into it with next to no resistance.

Its accordion-like limbs were torn from its body, flailing about before they vanished into darkness. They started to regrow, but the blades didn't give them time, continuing to slice and slash and tear into the Heartless, before it too, finally, gave up the ghost and vanished into darkness, the pink Heart within floating away to wherever Hearts went after they disappeared.

Two down.

----

Kantia, having only relatively low level heartless to deal with, wasn't having much more trouble. Plus, in close quarters, the Heartless were a much a hindrance to each other as they were a threat to anyone else. Her blade, though striking them as she swung, met very little resistance from their metaphysical bodies and proved to be quite the deadly weapon.

It also proved quite the effective distraction as the same shadowy figure that had led them this far darted passed the girl.

----

It was strange how high one's pain tolerance could go.

Calvin certainly felt the pain of his body being impaled by Bastian's claws, and the pain of being torn off the spike was enough to make him cry out even after everything else, but he still managed to remain lucid even as his mangled body was tossed down to by the edge of the flames. It was still unbelievably hot, but he was no longer being directly charred alive. The healing potion helped as well, though not nearly as much as it would have on a mortal, but it did get Calvin to a state that didn't look like a burnt corpse. His took a ragged breath, ready to respond to Bastian, only for the shadowy figure to land near the pair.

This close to the fire, there were no shadows to disguise it.

It was a humanoid, a slightly pale skinned boy in his twenties, wearing a simple black T-shirt and a pair of jeans. Piercing red eyes locked onto Bastian's, and close cropped, pure white hair seemed to glow in the light of the flames. Upon the boy's back, a pair of white, feathery wings flared as he stood up to his full height. The boy's form seemed to flicker, as if being viewed through an old television set with poor reception, as he raised a hand.

"Thundaje!" A massive bolt of lightning lanced out of the angelic boy's hand, point blank at Bastian, before the stranger grabbed Calvin's still weak body and jumped upward, his wings carrying him up and out without another word.

Stone pumped her fist as the boss Heartless exploded into dust and it was easy to clean up the rest of the heartless that had come out of it with her shotguns, but there was still no rest for the Interference crew as a whole new wrinkle came up. She was about to jump down and help Bastian when the figure in white made his appearance, but the thought of more help was dashed when he turned his powers on her ally and claimed Calvin for himself. She braced herself on the rock and unslung her rifle once more, now training on him and looking to bring him out of the sky before this could get any worse as she aimed at his lower back and pulled the trigger.

Edd yowled, even after he beat the trickmaster the mecha was heated over and he could only try his best to vent the heat out...It seemed he was at least for the moment indisposed, the Rider red hot and steam venting off from it. He was stuck in there, nose bleeding as he could only force PK Ice to offset the heat...a smokescreen of steam from the assault. "D-dammit...! I can't tell what's going on!"

Kantia cut through her enemies easily before she saw Edd venting steam, quite literally, and she made it her mission to get over there and help him. She hopped down onto the mech and ran up its arm to get to the cockpit. "Edd!"

She jammed her blade into the seems of the cockpit hatch to try and get it open, not really caring if it was dangerous for her to do so. To be honest this whole act was very dangerous.

There was only a moment for Bastian to take in the newcomer. Humanoid. Male.

White wings.

Then there was the lancing pain of lightning coursing through him, ripping away his control of his body. He dropped to the ground, wings curling protectively around him as he clenched his teeth. It felt like an eternity before he was able to pound his fist into the ground and push himself upwards, unfurling his wings as he tried to spot his foe. Everything was hazy and doubled, but he could see the flash of white wings beating away, taking his targets away from him.

Red clouded his vision and aether crackled between his claws. Bastian had learned, little by little, how not to hate on sight alone. To hold his anger back, even as his instincts screamed at him to attack. It had only taken a second for that facade to burn away.

With a roar, the aether in his claws wound itself into a rope. He flapped his wings, just enough to get him a few feet off the ground, and lashed the aether rope like a whip towards the receding targets. Calvin, the other one, it didn't matter who he hit at this point.

"Get the FUCK back here, you sun-sucking pieces of shit!"

With both Kantia and Edd sufficiently distracted due to the state of the boy's mecha, there were only two potential threats for the strange angel to deal with. However, in a display of the usual bad luck opponents of Interferences usually suffered from, they were both threats capable of performing ranged attacks.

Luckily, for the stranger, he had an undying meat-shield at his disposal.

Calvin screamed out, first as the rifle's round embedded itself in his chest, then again when the aether whip lashed across his back. The archer was shown no mercy as he captor tossed him around to block any more attacks, his near limp body still having too little energy within it to even try and fight back.

It was all he could do to wrench his eyes open and try to see where they were headed. And his confusion at the whole situation only grew once he realized the angel, who flickered yet again even as he flew, was headed right back toward the Underworld's entrance.

Well, at least Calvin's situation couldn't get much worse, so Stone didn't feel quite as bad about shooting him as she would normally. Either way, she would need to buy him some chocolate or something after all this was over. For the moment, though, she took off around the rim of the great pit sprinting and blinking over obstacles at near highway speeds. She was unencumbered and still mostly fresh, while this thing had to deal with hauling Calvin around. She was certain she could catch him; it was just a matter of getting to him before he did whatever it was he was doing to Calvin.

Kantia succeeded in prying the Cockpit open, she was hit in the face with a cloud of steam before Edd stumbled out...Nose bleeding as he looked over at the angel with Calvin in tow. "Hah...Hah.." Edd panted, his eyes glowing. The coordinates were set. The machine groaned and began to fly towards Calvin and his new captor, on a mad dash. Rider was on her last legs. Might as well go out swinging. Meanwhile, Edd collapsed into Kantia's arms, holding onto her just to stay awake.

"Hey..ya really put your neck out for me, Kantia." Edd said, ragged breaths...trying to hold on.

Kantia silently began searching through her pockets for an extra potion. She had one. She looked at Rider for a moment as it went after... What ever that was. After a moment of searching she found the object of her search. And proceeded to crack the top off and shove the thing into Edd's mouth.

"Bitter, but swallow." She said, hoping he would drink the potion, even if it tasted terrible.

Bastian swore as the lash fell short of grabbing either target, and pulled it back before it faded completely into the aether. With no other option, he sprinted towards the stone walls of the cavern, digging his claws into any crack small enough to allow him to wrench himself up the wall. Not fast enough to keep up with winged flight, but the massive robot was marking a far easier path to follow.

"Damn you...!" Bastian growled as he reached the path once more, and aether gathered around him as he continued his pursuit, towards the... exit?

The strangeness was pushed aside as Bastian used his aether to boost his speed. He just wanted to give that white-winged asshole a taste of his own medicine now.

With Calvin weighing him down, the angel seemed doomed to be caught; between the Aether boosted Bastian, the time-accelerated wolf-girl, and the giant robot, it looked all but inevitable he would be stopped.

And yet, he seemed calm as he raised his hand upward, and a bit of light flickered in his palm. It took a moment, and the Rider was rapidly closing the distance, but a pure white staff with a blade atop it, resembling a naginata, appeared in the angel's hand. Calvin barely managed to get a decent look at the thing, seeing countless symbols carved into the staff, before it was surrounded with blue arcs of electricity and hurled at the Rider.

The weapon flew straight and true, sticking into the mech with ease. From the point of impact, the metal's color began to turn black as pitch; then, after a couple of seconds passed, the impact point detonated, flinging shrapnel and large portions of the machine (some of them still blackening or exploding) away with a massive shock wave and smoke cloud.

When the initial explosion finally cleared, the angel was much further away, nearly to the antechamber before the Underworld exit, and descending to the ground once more.
