    The blade was flesh, and it was hungry. Ishtar grunted, and with a flare of Hakai, reduced it to nothing. "Disgusting." The arm however ... how curious. A testament to the work Marduk got up to, in the ancient laboratory of the Star Nursery. Jinzi would love this ... with a sigh, the Oni withdrew a single capsule, and with a click she contained the arm within.

    "I told him I would take that arm."

    Mindful that there was yet Bloodwrath to worry over however, the Oni did a final scan to see whether or not it had been annihilated.

    And with that, Baric is sealed away within the Soul Shard.

Upon deciding that it wasn't going to be that easy, he took off after Dash, maybe they'd pass an armory or tech lab along the way, he'd check the entire building if he had to.

    "Certainly," Blizzar nodded. "I'll hold onto this for the time being, if you don't mind," Blizzar raised Kenbo's time blade up.

    Blizzar was no trained swordsman himself...and he also had no idea how to activate the blade' time manipulating properties. Perhaps the member of the Time Patrol may know. But the material the blade was a de of was undoubtedly strong and he could make use of it with his telekinesis....after some healing.

    "Well then ..."

    Ishtar sighed. It seemed with that everything had been dealt with at least for the moment. Turning toward the others then, the Oni cracked her neck. "It is time we ma-"

    A second explosion equal to her own rocked the battered asteroid base, and the golden-eyed Oni's head snapped in the direction of the explosion's source. "We need to go."

    It seemed they had a stroke of good luck for once as far as Aleka was concerned. The hybrid was freed from the doctor's control giving them another ally instead of just a enemy to cut down but it did send a few questions in her mind, many of which would need to wait until they were in a secured area. At the moment what worried her more were the others seeing as for the most part their portion of the battle had been handled and dealt with.

    Then suddenly, a surge of overwhelming power was felt and just as suddenly as appeared, it was snuffed out.

    A uneasy sinking feeling knotted in the woman's stomach at this. I don't fully recognize that signature but I'm pretty sure it wasn't any of the Doctor's people...

    The idea to investigate seemed to be one others had already, as Dash and the Time Patrol member, something she opted to join them on seeing as nothing(at the moment) needed her immediate attention or presence.

    At speed (flying or running), it will only take a bit to get to the Doctor’s area.

    Ishtar, Bloodwrath is no where to be seen.
    Sasheem returns hoping to find Baric blasted to smithereens, instead noting what's left of him has been absorbed by se of Etrina's magical shit.

    The Majin, still reforming from the damage he had taken in the last fight shrugged. "Okay, we done here? You idiots took long enough....say, what's the world record for surviving a fight with Nucklehead or whatever they're called? 'Cause Sasheem thinks he just broke it..." the Majin asked, nearly along over to the floor.

    "Gonna....definitely need some food first....Sasheem'll catch up up to the big boom, later..." the Majin stated, nodding off to sleep for the moment.

    Marsheb, held in suspension, takes the majority of Ishtarís wrath. The beam punching down and through the fused Oni, before breaking against Baricís humanoid head, torso, and horseback before continuing on.

    On and on the beam went, plowing through the two and into the crater facility, punching down through layer after layer, level level until it finally tapers off some five hundred feat below where Sasheem had started fighting Baric. Ishtar managed to go through about half the facility it seems.

    The two rooms, where the Oni and demon had been fighting, are both pretty badly wrecked from the shockwaves the beam caused, but all her allies have survived, if a bit burned or bruised.

    Of the fused Oni, only a shimmering black clawed arm remains, its features drawing light in as it rests softly in a corner.

    Baric, however.........

    Perhaps because Marsheb took the brunt of it, half the demon remains. That is, itís rear legs and itís horse head and itís sword in the corner. Which, to everyoneís surprise, is still alive. Even now tendrils of rit and fetid odor extend between the two portions and the sword, drawing them together as the demon slowly begins to put itself into some semblance of mobility and togetherness.
    The aftermath of their battles with Baric and Marshub was as devastating as it was silent. The fused Oni had been completely obliterated by Ishtar's blast. The Nukkalevee survived for a few moments longer before being frozen, then imprisoned by Etrina.

    Parsley allowed herself the chance to breathe. It hadn't been a difficult battle, but the toll was evident. They had wasted enough time. The Doctor and the fate of the universe awaited.

    "Why am I?" she muttered as she looked down and beheld her body bereft of the armor gifted to her by Sarada. It must have been burned away during the attack. With it, her capsules containing her spare clothes had also been burned away, meaning she would have to continue this fight completely naked. Nothing she wasn't used to, but it was annoying.

    She bent down and picked up several pieces of the ultra katchin that had been broken away during the fight. They could, she noticed, channel energy much better than regular katchin. Such would come in handy, perhaps as a weapon of some kind.

    She handed it to Ishtar. "I'll retrieve that when I get another capsule," she told her pointedly, acknowledging the Oni's penchant for collecting spoils of battle. "Mine."

    Another rumble shook the compound. "Damn it." She broke into a sprint toward The Doctor, and the source of the rumble. The energy spike just prior to the rumble was Charco's, massive in its intensity and instability. Then, it burned away.

    It was gone.

    The time has come and gone, she realized. She hadn't known the boy very well, outside of her conversation with him the previous day. If she had, she would have liked him. Not one to mince words or waste time, he got to the point and the heart of everything. And now, he was gone.

    And in his stead, the parasitic coward has what he wants. A body to call his own.

    She grimaced and picked up her pace to full speed.

    Sarada felt it. After the rumble and explosion that thundered and shook the entire base, she felt it. Charco's wild, unstable energy, roaring and ebbing like an out-of-control inferno. Charco's energy spiking one last time, then snuffing out like a candle in the breeze.

    Up until the tournament, she had trained herself to pay special attention to his power, just in case he was ready for another go.

    Now, there was no chance of that ever happening. She would never get her rematch.

    It was never about avenging her loss. Saiyans showed their affection -- for the most part -- through combat. She was so fond of him because he was also willing to go full-tilt even in a spar.

    She closed her eyes and bowed her head. Goodbye, Charco. I'll never forget you. Fuck feeling sad. She was going to remember her friend the Saiyan way: by tearing a hole in The Doctor's skull and fucking him to death. "Let's go." Her aura flared as she vanished, crashing through wall and door alike to get to the final battle as quickly as possible.

    No way to go but forward. No way forward but through.

    The room is silent as the Doctor ignores Erosa’s comment, holding the watch slightly longer before moving forward, toward one of the few remaining lab areas. Erosa would note this one had an independent energy source, a Dreadnaught Heart, powering a forcefield around it. That was why it didn’t explode under the blowback from Charco’s attack.

    The Doctor moved and stepped through the field and started tapping at the computer, still utterly ignoring Erosa, and Charco’s sacrifice as if it didn’t even matter.

    Sarada blew by Dash at some point en route and quickly entered The Doctor's lab. There, she found her prey. There, she also found her friend, nothing more than a blackened statue.

    She paused as her eyes lingered on what was left of Charco before she refocused. She roared and lunged at The Doctor. Knife in hand, she brought it down on his head, intent on stabbing him in the skull.

    Parsley arrived quickly to find Sarada already attacking The Doctor. She shook her head and stopped just inside the doorway. You never learn.

    Her eyes scanned the area. The damage done by Charco's blast was monumental. Everything that had been worked on in this room had been obliterated. Except for The Doctor, somehow.

    Erosa was also present, yet somehow had managed to do nothing of note, it seemed.

    How?

    Parsley sharpened her focus to see what laid beneath, and find what they were missing. Observational Focus.
