He saw an opening and had the Ava prepared, but either a stroke of fate or perfect timing, he waited long enough to see a better chance. His target was a massive creature, standing 6 maybe even 7 ft tall, and coiled blood to its whim and earth, most people can only properly wield two elements, three given rare instance. It wasnt enough to bet its life on, but they could assume they had learned of their target primary elements.

They turned to face the ball of blood, considering the corrosisve properties the Feer had informed them of, they could assume this was a bomb of sorts. They fashioned a dark slit behind their back, falling into the crevice like portal, inbetween the blink of its targets eye and appeared behind Allen's shadow. His blackened eyes leering up to its giant prey, arms tense and ready to strike.

He was within arms reach, one swift thrust and his hand could cleave through harden metal;but, he waited for Allen to notice, he waited for their eyes to meet before doing anything. No, he just let the blood lust encroach on allen's shoulder, as they weighed their options on tearing him limb from limb.

The tree he was perched upon was ripe with his aura. Saturated in its essence it was a cesspit of power. A vat of possibilities. Allen's gaze saw past corporeal and they never left sight of the creature's life force. The moment that disappeared he knew something was up. The hair on his back stood up as the being suddenly appeared behind him. The faintest drop of murderous intent was enough to alert Allen but this creature was wreaking of it. Allen had some time ago had given his blood the "Reach" command creating nigh sentient clawed appendages that responded the moment the blood lust was felt. Instinctually and practically upon arrival one of the two tendrils would react flinging itself at Orca with the intent of grabbing his neck whilst trying to dig its claws into his flesh. . As for Allen the moment, the first tendril responded his body shifted he'd do a spirited back flip onto a higher branch that was behind Orca. Upon his hand touching it several other branches would extend becoming malleable and strike out as him aiming to further ensnare him should the tendril fail to do so. His other tendril stayed now on alert, ready to act at a moment's notice.

"What are you? What business would you have with me?"

He spoke out, but something told him he might not get a response. During the backflip, his eyes met Orca's and he caught sight of the blackened almost soulless gaze. What is the world was this creature? Vescrutia was filled with enigmas and anomalies. This was getting interesting. The pervasive blood lust almost had a scent to it. It was causing his blood to pump but under the veil of Amrits power, he was still of a clear and sound mind. Quite the opposite of his bug-spitting friend here. The clone of Allen stayed tethered to the tree itself. It would place its hand onto the tree and begin to spur the naten of the tree, aggravating it causing the blood to heat up. Inter its own naten began to do so.

The tendrils lunged into his neck, clanging against his steel like armor of his skin and bones. With a cold and blank stare they slashed at the tendrils with the blades that were protruding from his forearms, ideally shattering the first tendrils to attack them and leapt to a branch adjacent to Allen.

The branches turned to weapons and rushed from the trunk of the tree in hot pursuit, ensnaring one of his legs seconds after they landed on their new footing. Without even a whisper he directed his attention to the remaining branches that sought to bind or maybe even skewer him.

His mouth opened, revealing a row of teeth not to different than any other human in the desert;but, with further inspection you could see the iridescent flicker of a swarm of feer, swimming around in his mouth. Even in large numbers their wings didnt make much of an audible cue, making the bugs size a lethal combination. However the sun's light shined brightly over the white sands of the Acrix desert and illuminated the spores that fell from their wings, creating a beautiful gleam of iridescent light trail flowing from his mouth.

A rainbow flew from his mouth, flying to the tip of the tree, with the intent to surround and subdue their target, avenging the fallen insects that Allen had slain earlier, not that Feer actually needed a reason to hunt. Their numbers were incalculable, and their swarm was always hungry. The sheer size of the rainbow explained the gravity of Allen's situations, assuming Allen understood what Feer were.

All they need due is wait as the rapid fluttering of the swarms wings released the dangerous hallucinogenic spore that was easily carried by the wind, the very same spore that coined the gnats name, feer. Once the spores are absorbed into the bloodstream, the victim would be paralyzed by powerful fear driven hallucinations.
