A pier across the bay from Anya and Lucius The water was static around the pier. The breeze too was still, as Victoria sat atop Gray's shoulder, unmoving as Victoria whistled a tune, rifle leaning against her own shoulder. Her eyes were fixed on the water, observing it for the slightest bit of movement. She picked up a contract involving this specific area, something was harassing dockhands, fisherman, and anyone else who made their business on the seafront. Most people dismissed these as common occurrences, but someone that knew of demons and other horrors contacted Victoria, actually claiming too see something moving in the water. She may have dismissed it herself, though the area has had several missing person cases in the last few months. Something bumped against the dock, making it creak and shake. Victoria brought the butt of her rifle to her shoulder, and slide off of Grays shoulder, nearing the edge of the waterfront. She continued to look out into the water, her gazing skimming it over looking for the monster. A splash to her left distracted her, and she turned her rifle to fire, the creature no wear to be seen. Instead, the creature surfaced on her right, lunging at her from the murky water. Rusalki stand at around 7'0, these demons are one of the few water dwelling in the ranks of Lord Edge. Often seen as low-to-mid ranked, they generally don't see combat, but are deadly in their own way. Often in packs of 4-6, the alpha having black scales and spikes. She would've been fish food if it wasn't for Gray, his metal gauntlet wrapped around the creatures throat, grabbing it mid-lunge. His free hand reared back, but a tentacle wrapped around it. A second creature pulled itself onto the dock behind Gray and Victoria, this one larger with black scales coating its body like armor.Turning the rifle onto the one holding Gray back,she fired a shot into the demons tentacle, freeing Gray to punch the demon back into the water. The bullet emitted magic as the engravings emitted a dim blue, and the monster gave a his before diving back into the water. "Rusalki.... Great" Victoria muttered to herself as she watched the water, which had come to life, a pack of six swarming around the deck looking for an opportunity to strike. Gray drew his sword from his back, and his right arm extended into a shield, as he and Victoria stood back to back.
