The power of magic continued to flow through Vivi, he could feel it coursing through him and he knew a powerful spell would be waiting once it finished.  Then, as if they had been fighting together for ages, Frantz came up with the perfect combo move, an attack that made the Zuu susceptible to magic.  Yet, before the party could act, the Zuu began to counter.  All around them, the air began to become hotter, the ground burned hissed and smoked as its temperature rose and within moments the party was enclosed in a ring of fire that slowly made its way towards them.  Vivi was not yet able to move, as his energy was still focusing and the flames came closer, licking at his coat.  Then, just at the last minute, the aura of power ceased and Vivi knew, that he had completed his focus.  In seconds, Vivi jumped through the flames, his coat searing as the flames caught him.  As he landed outside the fire, Vivi turned his staff towards the giant bird and began to cast his spell.

The air now began to grow colder, the wind felt like ice piercing through the skin.  Shards of ice began to form and flurries of snow appeared as if out of nowhere.  Channeling all of the built of magic strength that he had, Vivi cast his spell towards the Zuu.

Frantz turned his back to the Zuu and felt the fire rain down upon him. It had been some time since Frantz had felt real battle and his blood was pumping. The pain from the fire was barely felt over the roar of the adrenaline. The heat quickly went away from Frantz felt Vivi's ice spell pass over him. The dragoon looked over towards Vivi, “Those pack quite a punch, keep it up.” Frantz looked back to the Zuu, bent his knees, and with a quick twirl of his lance leapt into the air towards the mountain side. Frantz continued to jump up the mountain side each time taking him higher into the air. The feel of the air on his face and the light-headedness associated with the height brought back memories to Frantz of his life before being sent back into the world. The memories was not of any particular moment, but rather a sensation of familiarity and security. Frantz knew he must have fought like this in the past or it could even be a basic part of his people that it came from his very own ancestors. Either way, Frantz felt at home.

  Chapter I: Memories of Mist
 
  The flames scorched the deck of the firefly and burned at Erlein as he leapt from the railing, his right arm shielding his face, towards the grassy ground below. The young man rolled as he struck the ground, quickly picking himself up just in time for the air to chill rapidly around them as Vivi cast Blizzara on their air born foe. Ice seemed to materialize out of the air itself and with a staggeringly loud noise exploded into shards which stabbed at the Zuu.
   ” Seems like these two know what their doing. ” Erlein said to himself as he rushed up to the front line next to Vivi just in time for the Bermecian to leap upwards with a great enough force to take him out of their field of vision into the Mist. ” I've never seen a Zuu this big before, it's magic is pretty potent as well. ” Erlein was directing his comments towards Vivi as withdrew his dagger from it's sheath which hung from his belt. Knowing that his weapon wouldn't be as effective at this range Erlein decided to show the mage his own small ability with magic. Using it's blade as the center point Vivi pointed the Gladius towards Vivi and with a mumble of incantations he directed his enchantment at his ally. With his focus drawing back towards the enemy at hand Erlein became aware that the wind around them was whipping up even stronger and then sensing a burst he lowered his stance as the Zuu flapped with enough force to begun sending debris flying around them to the point that the air itself seemed to cut like knives.

A wave of freezing cold air swept through the valley as shards of ice materialized out of thin air and exploded into the monstrous Zuu.  However, the Zuu did not seem to react much to the blow and Vivi knew that this battle would be more difficult than he had first imagined.  As the Zuu began to ready its next attack, Frantz seemingly leaped off up high into the mountainous cliffs, fading further and further from view.  Vivi was familiar with this kind of attack, having seen Freya do it many times herself.

Erlein seemingly appeared out of nowhere, rolling up off the ground and into the fray.  Unfortunately, his weapon of choice, a dagger, would not help much against a for that kept its distance.  Yet, Erlein proved his usefulness and cast a spell to help protect Vivi from magic.  It proved to be a timely spell, as the wind began to feel like razor blades being whisked through the air at violent speeds.  Vivi braced himself and waited for the wind to die down.  As it did, he began to conjure up his next spell.  Sensing that this fight could be one of attrition, Vivi cast a green looking spell towards Zuu in hopes of poisoning the foe for the remainder of the fight.

Time seemed to slow to a crawl as Frantz looked down upon the Zuu from up on the mountain side. Frantz to take in the moment and it seemed to be for a minute, but only a few seconds passed. The wind passed by his face as he jumped one final time off the mountain and allowed himself to fall with his spear leading the way. Unlike the airship, this feeling of weightlessness was refreshing and comforting. As Frantz approached the Zuu, his body flexed as the blade impaled the Zuu with great force. Frantz pulled his spear from the Zuu and jumped back to where his allies were. Since arriving on this continent, Frantz had not had the chance to experience any real battle. Sure the Mist was terrible for the average citizen, but a part of Frantz saw the Mist a somewhat positive thing for the continent. It made the people here stronger and smarter. Allowed them to create airships and become strong fighting monsters. Frantz dashed that idea from his mind as he was reminded that not everyone could fight these monsters and many perished.

  Chapter I: Memories of Mist
 
  The Zuu let out a raucous shriek after the back to back attacks from Vivi and Frantz, the rhythmic flapping of it's wings slowing as it hovered just above the grassy field before it's massive talons touched down. Erlein looked to his left and right, at the allies that he had recruited and for a brief moment marveled at the power they both possessed.
   ” This is more my speed. ” Erlein said as he shook himself from the daze, the thrill of battle grasping him and seemingly thrusting him forward of it's own volition.
Erlein's feet swept quickly across the field as he closed the gap between himself and the dazed creature. His heart thumped heavy in his chest, the adrenaline surging as he lept ahead and with a twist of the body brought his dagger fully around slicing at the avian foe with as much force as he could muster.

The Zuu will shake off our intial attacks next round. Vivi's Bio spell was successful and the Zuu will take extra damage.

The group fought like a team of seasoned veterans that had fought many battles together before.  Their ability to coordinate attacks and work in tandem without any prior planning or experience together caught Vivi by surprise.  After their onslaught of initial attacks, the group found themselves back together on the ground and the Zuu demonstrably affected.  However, they were not altogether very long as Erlein launched himself towards the Zuu, attacking with a surprising amount of force.

Vivi's spell seemed to have taken effect, the poison began to course through the Zuu's vein and Vivi could only hope that this would benefit them in this war of attrition.  Looking around, Vivi wandered what he could do next, he had attacked the bird with most of his elemental attacks.  Suddenly, Vivi had an idea and he pushed his staff towards the Zuu and time began to become distorted all around the staff.  The air stood still, the wind stopped and the ripples of time echoed throughout the valley.  Then, as quickly as he mustered the spell, Vivi pointed his staff towards the mighty Zuu and launched the Stop spell, intending to prevent the Zuu from moving as the poison ate away at him.

OOC: Vivi casts Stop.

Frantz watched as his and Vivi's assault on the bird caused it to stagger. Erlein went on the attack and it seemed that Vivi to be setting up a status ailment against the Zuu. Frantz gathered his magical energy towards his spear and released the magic around himself and his two allies. “I'll patch us up. Keep up the assault!” A green wind swirled around each of the three fighters and they could each feel their wounds and injuries slowly begin to heal themselves as time past. Frantz could feel his minor burns from the fira attack begin to go away and felt a cooling effect run over his skin.

  Chapter I: Memories of Mist
 

Erlein's attack struck the stunned Zuu with as much force as he could muster, and with a quick leap he returned back in line with his allies. Erlein's eyes darted around as from seemingly both sides magic was being conjured, spells he had heard of but never seen in person. A sense of wellness had rising through his body almost without notice which drew his attention almost at once to Frantz who had summoned the healing wind that circled them.
   ” You're both amazing. ” Erlein said aloud as he focused returned to the Zuu which seemed frozen in time, un-moving. Sensing that they had firmly gathered the upper hand in the battle Erlein saw no harm in doing what, in his own opinion, he did best—namely trying to nab whatever valuable items he could from the stopped Zuu. With a amazingly quick burst of speed Erlein had once again bridged the gap between himself and the Zuu and while still finding time to take a nice stab at the underbelly of the gargantuan bird he also ruffled through it's feathers looking for any stashed items.

The Zuu has been stopped and is taking poison damage. Erlein uses Mug, steals a Hi-Potion. Elemental weaknesses will be very effective with the creature stoppped.

When the group had been attacked aboard the airship, the Zuu had a clear advantage.  The fight was in the air, the party was aboard an airship with limited visibility due to the mist and without stable footing.  Now, fighting like a well-trained team, the unlikely party had turned the tides of the battle and it seemed as if nothing could stop them now.  Vivi's Stop spell worked effectively and now the Zuu was not only poisoned but also unable to now move, meaning it couldn't attack or defend itself.  Then to add insult to injury, Frantz took advantage of this calm to bring the party back to a healthy status with a timely spell of his own.

“We must press this advantage,” exclaimed Vivi as he readied his staff for another spell.  Knowing that the Zuu had no way to defend itself, Vivi prepared to use a spell that he knew Zuu's were weak to thanks to his countless battles against them and similar creatures with Zidane and company.  Once again, the air began to turn cold and fragments of ice materialized as if out of nowhere.  With a quick motion, Vivi pointed his staff towards the mighty bird and the magic could be seen releasing from it and creating an explosion of icy shards upon the stopped bird.

The magic of Vivi impressed Frantz and he could see why he was an ally of the powerful Freya. The bird was powerful enough to bring down the airship, but with a wave of his staff Vivi was able to stop all of his movements. “You're not too bad yourself!” Erlein's abilities impressed Frantz as well considering he was able to take a potion from a giant bird. Frantz begin to think that over when he realized that their enemy was still in front of him, stopped or not. The dragon knight gripped his spear and charged at the bird behind Vivi's ice magic. Frantz leaped into the air and with a spin slashed the giant bird with his ice lance.

Erlein was ready to strike, his eyes darting around the battlefield as on both sides Vivi and Frantz were hitting the frozen Zuu with all they had.
   ” Yes we must!” Erlein had agreed with Vivi as lunged forward, his dagger in hand, running in close to the now flightless bird and doing his best to slash and stab at it's weaker underbelly. Erlein had no idea of knowing how long Vivi's time magic would hold the massive creature in space, he only hoped it would be long enough for them to finish the creature off. Watching after his attacks had landed Erlein could tell their attacks were having great effect.
   ” I think we have nearly finished it! Give it everything you have!” Erlein shouted, realizing that he had more invested in winning this battle than he had thought.

The mighty Zuu was visibly weakened.  It had been battered and bruised and the party discovered its weakness to the ice element, pounding it with spell after spell.  Vivi agreed with Erlein's assessment, the bird was definitely almost finished.  Unfortunately, Vivi was exhausted, he had cast many spells in this battle and while it was to great effect. it drained him of his mana.  Knowing this, Vivi did what any mage would do…

Without almost any warning, Vivi planted his right foot into the ground and pushed off, rushing towards the mighty bird with his staff held high out in front of him.  As he neared the bird, Vivi leaped into the air, as high as an almost 4-foot person could do, and brought the tip of his staff down upon the head of the mighty bird. 

OOC: Vivi used attack.

The newly formed team was making quick work of this enemy that had brought down their airship. Seeing that the enemy was almost dead, Frantz rushed towards the Zuu again besides Vivi who had given up using magic to attack with his staff. As Frantz readied his spear for his attack, he had a quick thought wishing the Zuu had been stronger so the battle could continue. He hadn't been able to practice his fighting skills in real combat for sometime and was really enjoying it. Focusing his thoughts on what was in front of him, Frantz did a small jump into the air and landed spear first onto the Zuu.

  Chapter I: Memories of Mist
 

The Zuu belted out a caw as the final attacks did their job and finished the gargantuan beast off, it's feathered body falling limp to the grassy field under it. Erlein let out a sigh of relief, a sense of accomplishment rushing over him enough so that without much thought he found himself twirling his dagger round his head.
   ” I haven't seen a beast like that around these part in ages, even when the Mist was at it's height before.” Erlein was thinking a loud now as he turned behind him where the wreckage of the Pyrefly was littered around, some of it shrouded behind the think Mist but much of the vessel still visible.” It really did a number on my ship too, there's no way we're getting that thing back in the air today… we're going to have to continue on foot.” Erlein said to the others, wondering to himself who he would get to come out here and repair the Pyrefly. ” Guess we better get moving, there might be more of those Zuu's lurking so we should probably make haste.” Erlein said half serious, knowing they were only a few hours walk from Treno and that they would likely make it their without another altercation like the one that they had just had, but still sensing there was some danger with the Mist having returned.
