Hours after Axel had fought and defeated the Genin challengers, he was summoned to the arena to fight the first main contender, The Fire Reflection. The air was cool and crisp from the mountain breeze that was currently circulating in the spring climate of the mountains. ---------------------------- Mokui cracked his knuckles and stretched his arms. He drew a kunai from his belt and chewed on the tip. A quirk of some sorts. For one, he was awestruck that a youngster was going to become the Earth Reflection. For seconds, he was unsure if the kid could actually surpass the 2nd Earth Reflection before him. That was probably the only reason he signed up to fight "Axel". He was worried about his aligning village, and was worried in particular if this kid understood the political standards of war. He walked through the archway and into the arena. Time to find out.
