So the plunder in Plant had not worked fully to his favor. The Horsemen Ship had taken a beating and now he had lost some men. He was going to need to get some back. He was planning to a planet called 'Earth'. Never heard of it. But apparently it had a lot of shit to plunder. So why not check it out. Plant had just been a giant dust ball anyway. On his travels towards Earth though he entered a pocket of Arcose space. They were some large empire so he bet a lot of people would join him if he forced them along. Empires relied on strength and if you were the strongest then everyone listened. And he was pretty sure he'd be stronger then whoever ran these empires especially on the edge.
Cyprus called to his men "Park the ship on this planet boys!" The ship would slowly land on the surface of the small mining world. Some locals came out to see what was going on as Cyprus stepped out and spun. "We are here! Alright all of you are apart of my crew now!" He called raising his arms. "The Horsemen is a powerful pirate crew and we are 'recruiting' you to join the show! So get ready for a hell of a good time!" Of course not every was gonna want to join. They were some soldier who kept the mine running who aimed their weapons but he just flicked his hand forward firing a blast of ki towards them to torch them. "As i was saying you all are joining my crew! Pack your stuff and get on a moving. First 200 people live and get on the boat. Everyone else can be left here without a thing!"

Ticoga had arrived on Asatros 6 only a few short hours ago, having been part of his initial sweep across the eastern corridor of Imperial controlled space. Asatros 6 would be more accurately described as a livable planetoid, rather than an actual planet. About twice the size of an average planet's moon, Asatros 6 was originally a massive asteroid that had become ensnared in the system's star's gravitational well some two to three hundred million years ago.
Unfortunately for the planetoid, it had a decaying orbit, which meant in another few million years Asatros 6 would fall out of the goldilocks section of orbit, and eventually have its surface burned away by the star until it inevitably was drawn into the star itself. Such as it is though, Asatros 6 had minor forests and plains, but its water sources were deep under the surface.
Asatros 6 did have a very useful ore called Adranium that the Empire used as a conductor for its electronic devices, as the ore would not produce a metal strong enough for construction. The mining colony here had minimal defenses, as it was quite out of the way for most beings. But a recent rise in piracy had made it necessary for a tightening of security.
And now, such strengthening of security had become quite clearly needed. A large ship landed, disgorging an array of beings of many species, making their declarations. Ticoga had been speaking with the mining colony's head of security and the company's Lead Operator for the mines when a panicked worker burst into the room, bellowing about an attack. Several soldiers had already been killed, evidently.
Ticoga moves quickly, and flies to the location in a red blur. When he stops, Ticoga looks down from high above the invading pirates, and his crimson eyes narrow. He raises his hands, and points down. In rapid succession, thin beams of Ki streak through the air, and lance through half a dozen pirates, killing them with ease.
Ticoga drops down, and lands only a few feet from the one barking orders the loudest.
"You will cease your activities here and now." Ticoga demands, facing this invader and his horde, alone. He reaches up and presses his scouter, "Security detail, move the workers to a safe distance. Three miles should suffice."
Ticoga presses his scouter again, reading the battle power rating of the person before him. Sixty thousand. A strong battle power, certainly. One that only weeks ago, Ticoga knew he would likely have struggled against. But now?
"I am Ticoga, The Shield of Arcose - extermination of its foes is my duty." Ticoga says, a chilling promise of violence in his tone. "You will receive no warning to leave, and I shall not give the opportunity. For killing those protected under the Imperial banner, your lives are all forfeit. I will see to killing every one of you myself."
Ticoga takes off his scouter, tossing it away. He didn't need to replace yet another one so soon.
Ticoga arrives, in his first ever act as the Shield of Arcose!

Cyprus watched as someone darted in cutting his goons to bits. OOOOOH. So someone could fight here. "Oh no...my goons whatever shall I do!" Cyprus did a little spin in 'fear' as he faced off with Ticoga. "Alright, boys move back towards the ship. I've learned from last time. Seems we got someone who is a bit too strong for all of you! And I wanna keep you all alive...well at least most of you." He couldn't really save those this guy had turned into ash. "Replacing all my crew would be such a pain and of course, I have to do with another pain which is you. Ticoga shield of Arcose was it? Fancy title. So I should perhaps give you mine so you know what you're dealing with."
He'd step forward raising his arms to the sky. "When the cosmos were young and life was still blooming we stood at the top. The bringers of death, the masters of order!!!!" He gave it a little flair his arms causing streams of confetti to rise up and splash the battlefield. "We were the Horsemen. Stories must have been, legends that didn't do us any justice. The Four Kai bring death and destruction in their wake. Conquest, War, Pestilence, and Death!" He waited his arms in the air for a few moments as if the other three would appear before sighing. "I always do that you know. I really miss them all. But their not coming. Lucky for me, I don't need them to take you down." At least he was pretty sure that was the case. He would then leap forward forming a blade. "Let me try this for size" he leap forward trying to slash up Ticoga widely with the blade. "HHAHAHHAHA!" Clearly no expert swordsman he was still in the 'have a good time with your foe' phase.

The clear callousness of the leader's reaction to the deaths of his servants was all Ticoga needed. When they were ordered back to their ship, Ticoga took a mental note to memorize the ship's appearance, and the name the leader called the vessel. He flicks his eyes back to the one who had introduced themself as Cyprus. A Kai.
"Masters at the beginning - in other words, before any civilizations existed. An easy title to claim, when all you ruled over were animals." Ticoga scoffs, fully disregarding the Kai's claim. "How powerful you all must have seemed to single celled organisms indeed."
The story of the Four Horsemen was... not a story Ticoga was familiar with.
"You sound more like a circus character, than a Kai." Ticoga remarks. "You are no Kai. A Makai, perhaps, but your behavior is anything but divine."
Cyprus suddenly strikes, lurching forth with a sword and aiming to split Ticoga in two! But Ticoga had been ready for the moment the discussion went to violence, and his eyes flash with a red glow. Cyprus' sword suddenly stops, inches away from Ticoga's face! The blade in Cyprus' hand glows with a faint red, just as Ticoga's eyes were!
"Against some, you are indeed far above and beyond their strength." Ticoga replies, his voice icy with contempt. "But against me - you will indeed wish you had your friends."
Ticoga's tail slaps the blade away, and he leans forward, and engages Cyprus with a flurry of chops and elbows, moving with a fluidity of a hard practiced martial artist!
Ticoga stops Cyprus' non-kp attack with Utility Technique: Mind over Matter Description: Ticoga has a powerful mind, and has as such learned to utilize this power to its utmost. Ticoga can lift extremely heavy objects with the power of his mind alone, and can (With permission from a player whose character may be knocked out in a thread) retrieve and move allies and/or enemies who have been rendered unconscious. (Using it as a psychic technique to halt the blade's momentum)
"Trust me there were a bit more than single-celled creatures. But I see your point. It is easy to be king over the dead. Harder to be King over the strong and living. But I don't wanna be king. Never did, just wanted to Conquer. When you plunder and watch their face twist in agony, that's a feeling you can't replicate anywhere else." Cyrpus darted in as Ticoga called him a circus character but he didn't mind. He did have a bit of flair. A life that his other kai's did not. They were so cold and unmoving. They got all mad at what the horsemen were doing. But they were just living the best life. They would have done the same as the four of them did if they were not afraid of any consequences!
As he swung down to cut him the sword was stopped mid air surprising him "Oh..oh no...I can't move my sword." He sorta figured it was some ability used by Ticoga. He could move himself but the sword had stopped. Instead of disengaging he seemed to wait to see what Ticoga was gonna do. He would call that he'd wish to have his friends before unloading on him with a ton of strikes "G..guah.ah...gasd..na..not the face!" He was overwhelmed by the strikes as he seemed not even try to defend himself. Blood flew from his mouth as he took the series of blow before he got flung aside his head smashing into a rock while the rest of his body stuck out. "I guess...without my friends." The rock exploded as Cyprus leaned up blood flowing from his face. "I can have a good time!" He'd blast forward swinging his boot leg to crack Ticoga in the face before trying to axe handle slam him into the ground!

Ticoga's melee assault had gone pretty much unopposed as Cyprus took every blow, ending with his head imbedded in rock. Ticoga keeps his combat stance up, but doesn't drop his guard. In this weakest of forms, Ticoga's battle power is just over sixty four thousand. Cyprus, his scouter had revealed, had a battle power rating of at least sixty thousand.
There was no reason to believe that this being was inept as a fighter. Perhaps they were simply taking Ticoga to be a joke. Perhaps, like he himself, this Cyprus fellow held a vast amount of more power in reserve. The stone wall explodes, and the being - bleeding and looking like a Saiyan when a worthy opponent reared its head - came rocketing towards Ticoga!
Ticoga raised his arms, taking the kick against his forearms, but is struck by the overhead blow that came down on his head! The ground beneath Ticoga buckles at the impact, causing the spiraling shelf they stood upon to crack. Grunting irritably, Ticoga raises his head. Two could play the game of disrespect.
Ticoga rises to his feet, leering at Cyprus.
"You're going to want to do better that that." Ticoga says warningly. "But I suppose you simply wish to warm up. I could use limbering up as well."
Ticoga rushes at Cyprus, attempting to engage the Shinjin with yet another flurry of snaking martial arts strikes, intending to pressure the being.
Cyprus spun forward his kick meeting a hard guard. But the Axe Handle was able to meet the dome of Ticoga and smack him right into the ground. Cyprus grinned before going to flip away doing a twirl and a bow before Ticoga. Ticoga was of course not done at all and told him he was going to need to do better if he wanted to have a chance to defeat Ticoga. "It will be you that needs to do a bit better. Last time I checked you are the only one in my way." Cyrpus called out as Ticoga blasted forward with a flurry of strikes. Cyrpus began dodging and moving around the Snaking Strikes. "These blows are really fast and hard to read I must admit." A blow cut part of his face as he grinned. "Delightful really you can almost hit me." Of course, that was not true, he had already been hit a few times but he was mostly taunting Ticoga at the current moment.
"I mean seriously. You are strong I won't say you are not. But I've seen these move all before. I had to fight my fellow Kai. They were training martial art before your species was an thought in a thought! You can't seriously hope to beat someone like me with these.." Finally a strike hit him in the gut shutting him up. Then another right in the jaw to blast it up in the air. 'That really annoying. I was taunting him I must of misjudged his blows its fine' He went to dodge another but got nailed right in the side. He'd then form a barrier of ki to block the rest of the strikes an annoyed look forming on his face. That was not how he wanted that to go. Forming a chain from his magic he'd whip it through his barrier cracking barrier open as it whipped to clash with Ticoga's strike and maybe even wrap his arms up!

Ticoga's onslaught was taking its toll on the Shinjin - albeit gradually. At first, his blows were being fairly expertly defended against, but as soon as the Shinjin became cocky, Ticoga's blows began slipping through his defenses, and hammering into the being. But soon, a barrier would form and begin to foil Ticoga's continued assault. Ticoga began to back off so he may properly assess the new situation, when the barrier cracked open of its own accord!
A whip of chains made of some kind of energy - summoned somehow. Magic, the Arcosian knew - something he was beginning to witness more and more often as he faced more enemies. The chain moved at an incredible speed, and wraps fully around Ticoga with several laps. He struggles against the chain, but they stubbornly refuse to release their intended prey.
"Fascinating ability. But one I've seen before." Ticoga announces, looking at Cyprus. His eyes flash with violent intent, and his tail whips up and wraps onto the chain! He yanks with the tail, and brings the chain not wrapped around him to his knee level and grabs the chain with his long tri-toed feet! "But my arms are not my only weapons!"
True to his words, Ticoga's aura flares and he grips the chain hard with his tail and feet, and suddenly flies backwards, attempting to pull Cyprus into a wild swing that, if successful, would swing the Shinjin around several rotations before Ticoga attempts to slam them hard into the ground!
Cyprus caught Ticoga in the set of chains pulling him. And stopping his attack for the moment. “Heh, well that takes cares of that.” Cyprus yanked on the chains hard to try to keep Ticoga in place. He’d form another set of chains with his free arm this time the chains having large blade attached to them. “Just hold still a bit longer so I can cut you to ribbons.” He mostly ignored with Ticoga was saying since he believed he had him in the perfect spot. So why should he be worried. That was until Ticoga started spinning and lifted Cyprus right off his feet and spun him towards the ground. He had used his feet and tails to attack! Cyprus was annoyed as he desummoned the chains, landing on his feet with a huff. He was too strong for Cyprus to hold his ground against. So if he didn’t wanna get slammed into the ground head first he had no other option but to let go.
A small vein of frustration was visible on the kai’s face for a single moment before he dragged the chains across the ground. “Guess i can’t catch you. I’ll just swat you.” Cyprus swung the sickle attached chains forward firing towards Ticoga. With magic backing them up each of the chains were strong enough to slice through almost anything the Kai could image. And that hopefully included the durable Arcosian. He was clearly a foe he had to take seriously and not play around with. Shame, because it could of been really fun to tear the man confidence apart. But he was starting to get on the Kai’s nerves. So he should take control back first before he started playing with his food again.

To Ticoga's disappointment, the Shinjin disintegrated the chains, saving themselves from a hard counter on Ticoga's part. He lets out a sigh of irritation as theatrical being then shows his own signs of dealing with a growing anger. When the Shinjin reforms the bladed chains and sends them Ticoga's way, the Arcosian shakes his horned head.
"You aren't learning." he mutters to himself. Ticoga's hands spread wide in a sudden motion, glowing with a soft crimson. Rather than flee, Ticoga meets the slinging blades head on, flying towards them! He pulls with his left hand first, and a huge chunk of stone rips out of the ground! Ticoga kicks off that stone, hurling himself into a fast twirling that brings him out of the path of one chain, allowing the bladed end of it to shatter the stone!
In the same instant, as the second chain bears upon Ticoga, his right hand makes a similar yanking motion, and another large chunk of the stony ground sheers off the land and hammers into the chain, throwing the bladed end off course and allowing Ticoga to avoid it as well!
Ticoga halts his spinning, and stops suddenly in the air, pointing at Cyprus! The tip of his right pointer finger flashes, and a horrifyingly fast beam of crimson Ki no thicker than the width of his finger lances through the air, aiming at Cyprus's chest!!

Ticoga can lift extremely heavy objects with the power of his mind alone, and can (With permission from a player whose character may be knocked out in a thread) retrieve and move allies and/or enemies who have been rendered unconscious.
This is to rip boulders from the ground to aid in his avoidance and interception!
Ticoga attacks Cyprus with Heavy Attack Technique || Deadly Evisceration Ray Description: A variation of Ticoga's Evisceration Ray that is designed to sear through flesh and bone in an instant, without the dramatic explosion. Ticoga fires the thin beam from a single finger point in a terrifyingly straight line at the intended victim. Power: 80% -> 90% Restrained Might Variant: Bleed KP Cost: 6KP
This attack has the potential to deal 57,780 damage! If it hits and deals at LEAST 20% damage, it will inflict BLEED - and Cyprus will suffer 15% damage for two turns! (For a total of 30%)
Cyprus chain slashed forward but were meet by the massive rock Ticoga used to protect himself. His second chain tried to fling out but it was also deflected by Ticoga’s rock. Clearly the chains were not going to land an easy blow. But before he could think about landing another strike Ticoga fired off a beam of energy. Cyprus would raise his arms as a massive Spectral Horse burst from the sky. It raced down opening its maw as Cyprus had it absorb all the power of Ticoga’s beam of energy. When that Ended the Horse collapsed down vanishing into nothingness once more. “That was scary.” Cyprus admitted. “That was my horse, he gonna be out for a while now cause of you. You really are causing me a lot of trouble. This whole attack may not be worth it…NAH! I’m just gonna have to punish you for what you just did.”
Cyprus flung his arms back sending the chains forward but they had already detached from his arms. They spun forward to try to wrap around Ticoga. “I hope you have more tricks in the bag. My defenses are quite strong afterall. When your facing thousands of people at once, even the smallest attack can deal heavy damage. So you always gotta protect yourself. Weak or Strong. So if that your best attack you won’t ever hurt me." He’d raise his right arm up as red ki sparked up the arm. He’d spin forward before throwing the spear forward right at the chest of Ticoga. “Invasion Lance.” He aimed to pay Ticoga back for his early attack and piece right through his chest with a powerful ki spear.

Ticoga had been taken aback by the sudden appearance of the quadrupedal creature flying fast from the sky to defend the problematic foe. The strange beast seemed to swallow Ticoga's deadly attack, and collapses, fading as if it had never existed.
The chains then began to encircle Ticoga as Cyprus begins a monologue, actually chiding Ticoga as if speaking to some pup on their first day of training. The Shinjin would soon regret this, Ticoga was sure.
Ticoga's eyes flash, and the stones that protected him before suddenly fly towards him, flanking Ticoga as the chains attempt to wrap around him the second time. This time the chains snag around the two boulders, with Ticoga between the two. He glances at the shimmering chains that stretch across from stone to stone, and then leers at Cyprus.
"You think to lecture me?" Ticoga replies venomously. "Tsk. Such arrogance."
When Cyprus hurls the crimson spear of energy, Ticoga throws his right arm up, extending it forward with the fingers splayed wide. The energy lances into Ticoga's palm, and he feels the sting and burn as it scorches the flesh of his hand. But soon, the energy dissipates, revealing Ticoga to be relatively unharmed. He draws back his hand to inspect the damage. His palm and fingers are burned and bleeding, but the damage was superficial - though it still stung quite a lot.
"So, you're feeling unimpressed?" Ticoga says, letting his hand drop to his side, dripping with purple blood. "Very well - then perhaps it's time I showed you why I was chosen to be the Shield of Arcose!"
A crimson aura explodes around Ticoga, enveloping him in a blinding light! The winds whip against the cliff walls, and the light begins to fade, revealing Ticoga in a slightly taller, sleek form.
"I hope that this power will be more to your liking?" Ticoga says, the promise of combat in his tone. Ticoga raises his left hand, and fires a dozen small balls of energy rocketing towards Cyprus!
Ticoga endures Cyprus' attack with Durability, lowering the attack strength by 40% (9,800) making the total damage now 14,400! (22% total incoming damage rounded down from 22.43)

"Lecture you? Hah I mean to tell you how things are! When the stars were still young, I was riding the currents of space in my stead. I know far more than any of you mortals do. When it comes to the wisdom of this universe's motions, I'm hundreds of light years ahead of your kind, Lizard. The fact is if that is your best, you won't be able to defeat me. I'll wear you down until you have no more strength to give." The spear thrust forward but Ticoga seemed to guard himself. he was not sure where he got the energy, or if he was just that tough. Either way, it was going to be a problem that he was going to have to find a way around.
Ticoga called out that if Cyprus was so bored then why not check this out? And he'd transform into a sleek form that seemed much more powerful. Not that he could sense ki but he had to assume it was stronger. Cyprus's aura exploded as his power increased sixfold! He would be bombarded by the blasts from Ticoga and sent flying. Part of his suit was damaged one of the shoulder pieces being blown fully off. "My my, you are quite strong." Cyprus grinned blood running down his lip. "Word are fickle but fighting is not. You can tell the strength of someone only in that matter. Not just of their physical might of course but all aspects. You said you were the shield of Arcose. This empire must be quite powerful but if you're the shield, then I just gotta crush you then the empire would be vulnerable to my whims." Cyprus grinned as he spun all the chains over his head and shot them forward to slash and dice Ticoga! "Come on show me more of your skils! Shield!"

"You seem quite confident that your excessive age means anything other than failing to use your supposedly vast experience properly." Ticoga counters. For some reason, it didn't seem like Cyprus was bothering to power up as well, or perhaps that explosion of energy wrapping around Cyprus was the sign? It was hard to say without his Scouter, as Ticoga was not able to feel energy signatures like other species seemed to. Did the being really believe it could compete with an Arcosian in their True Form? Cyprus seemed to think so, whipping the blade-ended chains at Ticoga once again!
This time, Ticoga remained still. His eyes flash again, and the chains are intercepted once again by slabs of hard stone - the very same slabs still flanking Ticoga! The slabs shoot forth, crashing with the bladed chains - though the chains tore through the stone, it was still enough to greatly hinder their speed. Ticoga flies higher, looking down at Cyprus.
"You are foolish to believe the same trick will work, when it has failed time and again before." Ticoga rumbles, his eyes narrowing. "Perhaps in the eons past, you were indeed the mightiest thing in the universe - but you have fallen behind. Whatever you or your people, if you have a people, were in the past, it remains there. Telling me time and again how old you are proves only one thing."
Consuming 1 Energy Drink for +3 KP! KP: 5/6
Ticoga's strength flares, and he opens his right hand, taking careful aim at Cyprus.
"It proves that you are ancient history. A new power has evolved since the time of your rule - my people, the Arcosians, have risen and ruled much of the cosmos for centuries, if not thousands of years. If you are so wise, so powerful - then you would not be acting like a typical pirate." Ticoga says, his words venomous. "You will never break the Empire - and this is a Shield you will never shatter."
Ticoga's hand flashes, and a thick beam of energy bursts forth, roiling down towards Cyprus!

"Hah? Well, I have been sealed away for most of my life. So maybe you are right!" A small vein of frustration formed on Cyrpus's face. Even though he was throwing this guy around, he was still talking so much. How annoying. The chains he sent out were met by Stones that Ticoga seemed to raise with his mind. Once more Ticoga spoke his mind proclaiming that he was still using the same trick. And it had failed all the same. All his blabbering had done was prove that he was not as strong as he believed he was. In the time he had not been around, everything had changed. He might have been the strongest before but now he was in a universe where he was just a large fish wandering into the ocean.
"Is that what you believe? BAHAHAHAHA! We will see what you got!" He raised his arms but Ticoga was one step ahead a massive beam shot towards him with power surprising Cyprus. 'Where did all his strength come from' Cyrpus could not sense ki but its power was massive. He had to block! "Imprison Shell!" As the blast flew toward him a sphere surrounded the blast stopping it in place for a few moments. Cyrpus smirked. This was the power of Kai's almighty defense. Expect the shield to begin to crack before shattering. The beam sailed striking Cyrpus and causing a large explosion to erupt where he had been standing. Cyprus was flung from the smoke blood flying out of his mouth as he smashed through a few dozen rocks before coming to a halt thanks to smashing into a large study building.
"That really hurt," Cyprus admitted as he got up spitting some blood on the ground and glaring up at Ticoga. "I act like a pirate because it is fun. Don't mistake it for a lack of tact. I was born to reap souls. And now that we are replaced what can I do to follow my sworn purpose? Of course. To reave the lives of others with zero mercy." he'd raised his arms as chains shot out grasping onto the buildings around them. The building was imbued with his ki to make them massive study mallets. His muscles began to flex with great effort as he rip the building out of the ground and swing them all down at Ticoga. "It can be a thousand years or a million! Disrespect me again and you'll pay a heavy price you two-legged Lizard! When I was young your kind was still learning to stand on all fours let alone having the ability to talk back to someone like me!"
