FF: Clash! by ArtemioM05 FF: Clash! by ArtemioM05
The Hollower waits for the right moment...the girl in black wanders closer...and closer...and then...she is right past, her back exposed to your bodyguard.  Now is the moment!

"Hollower, take her now!" you command, blatantly ignoring Demsdale's pleasantries.  To her, it looks like you are merely grunting into your gag in frustration.

And you faithful servant strikes, shooting up from the shadows, metal claws ready to wrap about the girl's neck and take her hostage...but the a knife shoots out from the girl's wrist and swiftly counters the Hollower. 

"An assassin?" she asks as she locks blades with your servant, "Poor decision to try to sneak up on a fellow cutthroat."

There is a brief struggle as the two exchange blows, each trying to get an advantage over the other until the girl in black digs her boot heel into the Hollower's stomach and shoves her back with a heavy kick.  She gestures to the hooded men who quickly flood the space between the two combatants.  The hissing grows much louder, so much it is getting hard to concentrate, even from you location in the slaver's stable.  Persephone pulls her sword free and points it towards your bodyguard.

"A Hollower? seem familiar..." she ponders the assassin's identity for a moment, but then dismisses it.  "No matter.  Doubtless your master is wouldn't be that vampire would it?" she guessed.  The Hollower, as you expected, does not give her a real response, standing there in perfect silence.  You take this moment to analyze your servants chances...

Within the dark your Hollower has a distinct advantage, the shadows a cloak for her to disappear into...she is talented fighter and these bandaged men seem slow...stiff.  She should be able to pick them off easily enough with a frontal assault.  However, there are plenty of hiding spots in the dark, and stealth could be an advantage.  But then...this girl is an assassin too, and she will likely be aware of all the tricks that Hollower will bring to this could always send Lilrath to try to unearth some of your enemy's memories and turn them against her.  Of course, if the Succubus was telling you the truth...then there is something off about the minds of your prey, something that makes them much more slippery, that much more difficult to hold onto.

Suddenly, you can feel it...that girl Persephone is beginning to form a spell, the image of pulsating energy growing rigid is being pressed into your mind.  She is dangerous.

"Hollower!" You command, "I want you to-

B. Stealth is always the greatest advantage.

A, can't rely on C if Lilrath can't guarantee her powers to work, and B is probably exactly what she's preparing the spell for if she's that knowledgeable of hit-and-run tactics. If we dash in, we should be able to confuse them.

C. She's probably the most vulnerable now
