    But only just.

    An inch, a head jerked back, and Ishtar just misses. The Goddess retaliates with an uppercut that sends Ishtar into the ceiling if it lands, Vitalmancy greedily pulling at Ishtar’s energy, trying to drain it towards the Goddess.
    Ishtar found her claws sailing past where they should have connected, and tore into flesh ... receiving, instead a blow that caught her under-chin and launched into the ceiling; a plume of vaporized ice and shards of the same raining down from above from the impact.

    Despite the miss however, the Oni definitely noticed an ... improvement of a fashion.

    Though as she made to pry herself from the wreckage of the celining, Ishtar felt her energy -- again -- begin to be siphoned away; the Goddess of Ruination turning to it time and again as perhaps a mean to tip the scales in her favor ... and at that, Ishtar flashed a smile from her 'hiding place'.

    "Hungry ? I can help with that ..."

    Obscured by the icy mist that had resulted from her impact, the Goddess of Ruination would find shards of ice launched at her by Ishtar ... while at the same time sensing that the Oni was beginning to drain the ambient energy from the room.

    Praxat is hard at work on researching the electromagnetic spectrum." Hmm, X-rays are out of the question since X-radiation is ionizing radiation that means it has enough energy to rip electrons from atoms, and this can cause havoc on biological systems. Long term exposure to X-rays can lead to cancer, that and X-rays wouldn't be useful anyway since a detector would be needed, and the only abundant source of X-rays is space," Praxat said.

    Praxat looks through the electromagnetic spectrum in a book and reads up on everything up Wi-Fi waves, Millimeter waves and Terahertz waves." Wi-Fi could work, but it would be blurry. Next up is Millimeter waves which would provide better imaging then Wi-Fi. However, the best choice to use for my X-Ray mode according to my research on the Electromagnetic spectrum is Terahertz radiation," Praxat said.


    Praxat looks into Terahertz radiation." Terahertz waves are the closest thing to X-rays without the damaging effects, but there are a few problems. Like the fact, they can't penetrate water, similar fluids or metals, but science has only scratched the surface of what these can do. What if there was a way that Terahertz waves could penetrate water, similar fluids, and metals? " Praxat said.

    Praxat thinks carefully about her hypothesis. " Hmm, maybe If the intensity of a Terahertz wave was increased that would allow it to penetrate water and metals. I need to test out this hypothesis." Praxat said.

    Praxat gets to work testing out how hypothesis by using equipment to generate terahertz waves with fire them at firing them at a cup of water and various metal objects. " Okay test number 1 increasing intensity of terahertz wave to 5x does not allow it to penetrate water or metals. Maybe I need to increase the intensity even further." Praxat said.

    Praxat ups the intensity of the T-waves by 5x and still no penetration." Sigh not even a 10x intensity Terahertz wave is enough to penetrate water or metal. If 10x is enough then maybe I should just go straight to 100x intensity!" Praxat said.

    Praxat goes straight to 100x intensity and even that's not enough to penetrate water or metal. " Okay so no matter what the intensity it's impossible for terahertz waves to penetrate water or metal. I need to figure something else out for my X-ray modification. Wait my former master Khan once told me that Chi is everywhere, and since Chi is energy it must have a wavelength on the electromagnetic spectrum," Praxat said.



    Praxat looks at her goggles that are on a desk." If I can discover that wavelength than maybe I could find a way to use its properties for my X-ray modification!" Praxat said.

    Praxat then gets hard at work attempting to discover a new electromagnetic wavelength by using various electromagnetic detection equipment. " This is going take a long while but if my hypothesis is correct then I'm on the verge of finding a whole new type of electromagnetic radiation . A big part of science is discovery, so I will discover that which has yet to be discovered!" Praxat said.

    The Goddess ignores the shards and lobs a ball of Hakai at where she thinks Ishtar is.

    A ball of light formed in her hand. While she was still face down, she tossed the ball in the air, where it exploded. Corona Disruption would have not only disrupted his mundane senses -- sight, smell, hearing -- but also his ki sense and magic sense.

    Leaving the room, she went back into the main part of the ship and randomly chose a direction. With that, she moved quickly. Whomever of her teammates she finds first, she would offer them the axe.

    If it is an enemy she finds first ....
    She runs across Parsley who has just blinded a weird looking Namek/Saiyan hybrid.

    Meanwhile Marduk’s resistance gets even stronger.
    "Gotcha..."

    Taking in a deep breath, Charco dredged up what energy he could muster, tapping once more into the Thyreophora state. Grimacing, the boy could feel his body straining against the sudden rush of power, ill-prepared to deal with it a second time but held together by martial training and willpower. Gritting his teeth, he could at least relish in the knowledge that the intense pain of his body preparing to tear itself apart would give his hatred-fueled Brachio Stomp vortex a good little boost in retaliation to Marduk's resistance.

    Now he just had to hold on until the Deputy's preparations were done.

    Stopping in her tracks, Cyanna silently, and invisibly, waits and watches from nearby. As she does, she rummages through her mind, working out a strategy of her own, should it be necessary.

    The Namekian was blinded and disoriented, just as Parsley planned. She could have used this opportunity to absorb the nexus, but this abomination needed to be destroyed for good. Aleka had been forced to stand on the sidelines during the battle. She tossed Aleka the nexus device. "Finish the mission!" Her golden fire flashed and shone, Aura of Reflection willing itself into existence.

    As the creature staggered back, Parsley rushed in and rammed both hands down his throat. Opposing energies flowed through her body and were forcibly coalesced between her hands. "SPIRAL FLASH!!" The opposite energies thundered through her and exploded into File.

    Sarada screamed in pain. It was worst than anything she had felt in her entire life. She let go of the hilt and staggered back. Even after she released it, pain still shot through entire arm. Her fingers, her entire hand was charred to the very bone. Stupid. Stupid!

    It was stupid to try and grab his sword. Hindsight was 20/20, but she should have known that stupid thing was magical or demonic or something. Even its name sounded mystical.

    And it marked her. For what, she didn't know; but she did know that she didn't plan on finding out.

    With her good hand, she pulled out her Katchin knife and chopped her injured hand off at the wrist. "No one marks me, Oni," she snarled.
