"That, we can do. We should try and disable his wings, keep him from escaping. And watch for any tricks or smoke bombs...." He started pacing, his tail lashing back and forth. "Yeah, we can definitely make this work..."

Sunset nodded, slightly worried about what might happen if Quicksand managed to k.ill her. Would he go after Frostbite and Abyssal too? "They are more than capable of defending themselves." Sunset thought. She rubbed her wrist again, nervous as a thought went through her head:
If she did have to use her magic, what would the price be? She knew she had just made a worried face and she was 99% sure Abyssal had seen it

"Is there something that I didn't think of?" He asked, seeing her worried expression. "Something I forgot about?"

"No...just thinking." Sunset hoped that wasn't considered a lie, she was thinking about her animus magic. She shook herself. "It won't come to that." She muttered.

"Won't what?" He asked. "Don't worry, we won't let Quicksand get to you, I'll... Oh. It's not about that, is it." He paused, as the pieces fitted together in his mind. "It's your magic. And using it. You shouldn't have to, if all goes well." He attempting to reassure her. But in his gut, he wasn't so sure. The three of them against what might be the best assassin on the entire continent? It wasn't likely that all three of them would walk away from this fight. Especially since they wanted to take him alive. He straightened his wings, masking the internal battle and keeping the reassuring expression. "Besides, we'll have back up. Guards shouldn't be too far away." And he certainly hoped he was right. Unknowingly, the lights along his sides dimmed and went out as more are more worries clouded his mind.

Sunset took a deep breath in. "You're right." Sunset said, all the while internally cursing herself for saying anything. "I just remember all the stories my mom told me as a dragonet...of animus dragons going insane and losing their soul and k.illing dragons they care about." Sunset wrapped her wings around herself and shuddered

Abyssal rested his wing against hers. "So be careful. Don't do anything huge and definitely don't kill him. But you're definitely not close to losing your soul. I'll keep you from needing to destroy it. And... Don't lose your soul to save me. It wouldn't be worth it. If I die, it's saving my tribe and my continent."

Sunset looked up at Abyssal. "OK. Focus." Sunset said. She straightened up and got up. "We've got an assassin to take down." Sunset said. "Don't k.ill him." Her mind thought over and over again. "Where is Quicksand most likely to be..." Sunset mused.

"I'd say a vantage point along the perimeter. Frostbite and I can go a roundabout rout to the arena to hide. A bit later, you should take a very exposed path there, looking like you're alone. Get the the arena, and act like you're training or something. Hopefully he'll take the bait."

Sunset nodded and leaped into the sky. She landed on one of the palace's towers. She started scanning the sky. A dragon (probably a SkyWing, with its big wings) was flying overhead, but that was it.

She heard something shuffling behind her. "I thought you were an assassin. Aren't assassins to be quiet?" Sunset said, her ears poking up. A tail barb lashed at her shoulder. She smiled. "Trying to fool us?" Sunset asked, whipping around, tail barb raised. A Sand Wing with a black cloak on smiled. "A smart Sand Wing. Too bad you won't live." The Sand Wing said. "Quicksand. You're Quicksand." Sunset growled. She raised her head and let out a burst of flame: a warning signal. She prayed to the three moons that Abyssal would see it. She leaped at Quicksand, ready to attack

As Subset flew off, Abyssal realized with a sinking feeling that he was essentially alone with the Icewing. If Quicksand didn't kill him, Frostbite might. But Sunset seemed to trust him, so he may as well too. "Ready to go?" He asked, digging his claws through the dirt. He didn't know whose glares were colder, Fristbite's or the guards'. He swallowed hard and ruffled his wings awkwardly.

Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted the flames. "Nevermind, let's go." He said over his shoulder, taking off as fast as possible.

He quickly gained altitude, his eyes easily adjusting to the darkness, as he circled above Sunset and Quicksand. He judged the situation for a moment, then dove from above, tucking his wings in tight. He slammed into Quicksand, knocking him away from Sunset. The two rolled for a moment, and Abyssal went sliding away, scrabbling to avoid falling off of the tower.

Sunset was quick. She grabbed his tail and yanked Abyssal back up. She panted, clearly tired from shock. "Thanks for coming to help." She said.

"Don't let him escape." He gasped, regaining his feet and tackling Quicksand. The two grappled, and Abyssal latched his jaws around Quicksand's leg, wincing as the assassin's claws raked his side. Abyssal batted the Sand Wing back with his wings and analyzed the situation as fast as possible.

Sunset immediately pinned down Quicksand's tail. Her magic may have protected them from Dawn, but not Quicksand. She whipped her tail and carefully held it a few inches from his snout. "You've got some explaining to do." Sunset growled, keeping her tail close.

Frostbite

Frostbite listened to the plan carefully, and was quick to move once the signal was to be seen. He followed Abyssal to the old Skywing arena, spotting Sunset fighting with a cloaked Sandwing. 'Not a clever disguise, or intimidating outfit for that matter.' He thought, sizing up Quicksand as he kept his distance. The Icewing built up a frost blast in his throat, and when the time was right, he fired it at Quicksand's tail barb in hope to prevent him from using it.

Sunset jumped back as the frostbreath came. Her tail curled back automatically. Quicksand surged up, but Sunset roared and rocketed at him, slamming him back onto the ground. "Nope, you aren't going anywhere." Sunset growled, raising her tail scorpion style.

Abyssal winced as a jet of frostbreath shot past his snout, stinging slightly. Not bothering to see where it hit, he turned to pinning Quicksand's wings, digging his claws in hard than necessary. He felt b.lood running down his sides from the assassin, but was still moving. Hopefully the damage wasn't too bad.

Sunset growled. Her tail stayed position next to Quicksand's face. She growled, fangs showing. "He took my queen, peace in prryhia. Why should he live?" Sunset thought. She shook her head. "Focus." She muttered.

"Start talking, scum." Abyssal snarled, breathing hard. "who hired you? Where are they? The more information you give, the more likely you are to get out of here alive." He turned to make sure his tail was secure, then immediately looked away. The end of his tail was a horrific mass of frozen flesh. His stomach lurched and his head spun for a moment as years worth of horror stories flooded into his mind. He shook his head hard and turned back to the immediate battle.

Sunset looked down at Quicksand. "I would rather d.ie." Quicksand growled. "That could be arranged." Sunset said, whipping her tail closer. "Other than you're tail, you've got nothing on me, animus." Quicksand growled. "I don't need my magic to take you down. Just tell us what you know, and you'll be fine." Sunset snarled. Quicksand shook his head. "An honorable assassin, sticking to the code of keeping their hire dragon a secret." Sunset thought

Abyssal sighed. He didn't want it to come to this, but it had. Sunset might hate him. But this was for Pyrrha. He shook his head for a moment, then dragged his talons along Quicksand's wing, not deeply, but enough to cause pain. "It's not the Animus you have to worry about." He snarled. "Her job is done. Now I'll take you apart scale by scale until you tell us everything. And don't worry. We'll keep you alive. You'll be wishing for death far more than you are now."

Sunset.

Sunset widened her eyes. "He's right, though." Her mind whispered. She nodded to herself and looked back down at Quicksand, who winced at the sudden pain. "Do it then, i wont be giving anything up." Quicksand growled. Sunset felt her nerve snap and smacked him upright the head. "Listen here, you low assassin, we are giving you a chance at MERCY and you are being the most stubborn pile of camel dung I've ever SEEN!" Sunset growled. Her tail whipped out fast, nearly taking off Quicksand's snout, but she whipped it a few inches away, just to give him a scare.

Frostbite rolled his eyes in annoyance to the situation. "It's no use. He won't budge." He told them, walking up to Quicksand with a scowl. "But if we kill him, would that make us any better than him?" The Icewing questioned.

Quicksand howled, which made Sunset's heart clentch. "If only he didnt have that relic, i could use animus magic to make him talk." She thought. "I wont tell you anything, so you can just k.ill me off and tear me to shreds then." Quicksand growled. "How much pain is he willing to go through?" Sunset thought, her eyes wide.

Sunset looked at Frostbite. "He's right, but we cant just let him--OW!" Sunset growled as Quicksand bit at her tail, missing the barb but getting a sizeable chuck out of her. "OK, THAT HURT!" Sunset said, digging her claws into his snout. She saw the blood already dripping out of her tail.

She looked around Quicksand and narrowed her eyes at a pendent on his neck. Quicksand seemed to be protecting it. She grasp it in her talons. "Is this...special to you?" She hissed. Quicksand widened his eyes, then she knew. She ripped it off and suddenly felt her head pulse as her tracking spell that had long been delayed worked. She smiled. "Dont have you're protection anymore now, do you?" She said, her mind praising herself. "I could use my magic...one word, and he'll be d.ead." She thought. She clutched the pendent so hard that the gem in it cracked. This one thing had kept him safe. She chuckled softly to herself. Well, it wasnt going to anymore.

He looked to Sunset and subtly shook his head. If she k.illed him with her magic, her soul would take a serious blow. Heck, k.illing someone without magic did that. To any dragon. Somehow he would have to use Quicksand's fear of Animus magic without Sunset having to use any. "Don't worry, every dragon caves eventually. Sure, he's tough now, but we'll see how tough he is when faced with living his life with any wings or tail. You know, maybe take off the legs and eyes too... And who knows what Animus magic could do... I'm certain you couldn't continue as an assassin, and you probably couldn't find another job either.... Ah well, your choice." He dug through his satchel and pulled out a rather wicked looking dagger.

Sunset looked at the dagger in surprise. How long has he had that? She kept her pressure on Quicksand, who laid his head down, apparently accepting his fate. Sunset's tail was still dripping blood, making quite the mess. She bent down to Quicksand's ear. "Please. You're still my tribe, and I don't want to see any of my tribe k.illed." She whispered in his ear

The Icewing could see that Sunset's tail was injured and dripping blood all over the place. He took a piece of cloth from out of his bag and handed it to her. "Here, trade places with me and put this on your wound. Seeing I'm bigger, he's less likely to escape." Frostbite spoke, keeping his eye on Quicksand.

Dawnbreaker
Dawnbreaker watched the fight unfold from above the clouds. He had been camping out in the Sky Kingdom to watch Quicksand's movements and act as necessary as per request from an anonymous slip, presumably Quicksand's hirer. Upon noticing a commotion in the night sky, he camouflaged and took off in the direction of the scene.
Quicksand quickly found himself on the losing end and was ultimately defeated. He showed resilience for a while, refusing to speak up about who hired him. However, Dawnbreaker knew there was no guarantee that Quicksand wouldn't tell, and for the sake of his job request, he couldn't let it happen. He waited patiently for a moment when the assaulters' guards were down and soon enough it presented itself.
The sandwing holding Quicksand down loosened pressure slightly and the Icewing came forth, offering to switch places. As they conversed, Dawnbreaker dove and precisely threw sleeping darts at the three dragons. He then took a small round object from his pouch, shoved it into Quicksand's mouth, and flew away to the safety of the clouds.
He had no idea what the round object would do, but the request instructions said to put it in Quicksand's mouth. The assassin would know what to do next. Dawnbreaker pondered what the object could do. If it were animus-touched, perhaps it could teleport him away? Maybe all the way underwater or something. That would be funny. Or perhaps it could turn him into a squeaky scavenger, unable to give his pursuers any information. Dawnbreaker looked over his shoulder to see what had happened.

"Look, we should just ..." All of a sudden, something hit the side of his neck. He brushed away the sudden censored, a small dart coming away in his talons. He hissed a curse as his vision went fuzzy. He couldn't tell, but a dragon shaped blur seemed to swoop down. He weakly lashed out, but his limbs felt like lead. No, it was messing with Quicksand... He stumbled again, tripping over the prone assassins tail. They couldn't lose this... This was his chance to prove himself. If he failed... He didn't want to know the consequences.

"No problem." Frostbite took Sunset's place, keeping Quicksand pinned down under his muscular weight. This was right before some darts came raining down from the sky, a couple of them bouncing off the Icewing's armor. He did not move much, however, as he craned his head to look around. He could see that Abyssal was hit, but seemed to be handling the effects very well. He could also see the figure of some dragon escape to the clouds, but he was unable to make out anything of them. Frostbite could not let Quicksand go, not like he'd be able to move much anyways due to his injuries, but the soldier couldn't risk it. What was he to do in this situation?

Abyssal looked between Quicksand and the rapidly fading figure. He spread his wings to chase after, then yelped in pain, pulling his wings back in and stumbling slightly. Whatever was in the dart, it was certainly doing a number on his system... "Should we pursue?" He asked softly, all the earlier bravado fading. The pain and shock were setting in and it was all he could do to keep from collapsing. But he wouldn't show THAT much weakness in front of Quicksand and the Icewing.

Sunset felt a dart stick in her neck, but she desperately tried to ignore it. "No. We're so close." She thought. As much as she hated it, she knew what she had to do. She slipped a tracking spell on the two as she stumbled, taking out the dart as she did, but she knew very well that there was already enough in her to take her out. "I don't think we have the strength to pursue, Abyssal." She said. She stuck her tail down to keep herself upright. She yelled for the guards, who came down, disgruntled and clearly mad that SHE had called. She informed on the situation and two took off after the fading shapes while a nicer female carefully helped her while another guard helped Abyssal. Sunset collapse in the guard arms as the effect of the dart took in completely

Sunset woke up, with a very dizzy head. "Probably from using a spell right before i lost it." She thought. She realized she was in a guest chamber in the SkyWing palace. "Quicksand!" Sunset cried, remembering what had happened before she got knocked out. She leaped out and promptly stumbled. "Whoa...ok, take this slow and easy." She muttered, remembering her training on RainWing darts. She sat down for a moment to completely gain her sense of direction

"No no no..." He groaned, flailing his wings as he tried to balance enough to pursue. His efforts only ended in him one again falling over. "We were so close. .." he mumbled, his eyelids suddenly too heavy to hold open. The last thing he remembered was a Skywing standing over him.

Sunset finally managed to get a hold of herself and slowly opened the door to find a guard outside, glaring at her slightly. "Um...hello." Sunset said. "You're finally up." He grumbled. "Yea? So?" Sunset tried to stay composed as the after-effects of the dart set in. "What happened to the NightWing SeaWing hybrid?" Sunset asked. "In the same situation as you were. As far as I know, he's still sleeping." The guard grumbled. "You can stop grumbling at me anytime soon, i havent done a spell here." Sunset said. Which wasnt exactly true, she had, but it was a neccessary spell!

Abyssal stirred, groaning. His head was pounding and every muscle in his body ached. All at once, the memories of the previous night came rushing back. He sprang upright, then went crashing head over heels, jarring his wounds and hitting his head against a piece of furnature. "Ow..." He mumbled, trying to stand up again, albiet more carefully.

Dawnbreaker
The Nightwing-Seawing hybrid took pursuit after Dawnbreaker but quickly lost his balance and fell over while the Sandwing yelled for guards but soon collapsed. The Icewing however stood stoically and unfazed by the sleeping darts. The situation below was a chaotic mess but since his job was done, the Nightwing-Rainwing hybrid decided to head back to his post in the rain forest.
*I hope there is a more entertaining request next,* he thought as he soared. *And short preferably. I don’t want to miss my suntime.*
-time skip-
Dawnbreaker stretched and yawned in his hammock. His peers knew him for doing odd jobs around Pyrrhia and if he had to be honest, he enjoyed it. Getting to travel and see new places was fun. And he gets to make money on the side. The dragon got up and went into his office to see what interesting job request he had next.

"So, do you mind telling me where he is?" Sunset asked. "So you can take him out?" The guard sneered. Sunset felt herself snap. "Listen here, unlike that stupid Albatross, i wont go around throwing magic spells where ever! What makes you think that i would even do a spell that only benefitted myself and not my tribe or the entire continent?!" Sunset growled. "Because you are an animus, and animus dragons eventually become monsters, no matter what." The guard hissed, turning his back to her and walking off. Sunset felt her wings droop. Her mother had said all animus dragons that she had heard of eventually snapped in different ways. She felt a darkness in her heart but shook it off. "I got to try and find Abyssal." She muttered to herself.

Abyssal looked around the room, feeling a fresh wave of panic when he saw he was alone. Where was Sunset? Or Frostbite for that matter? He didn't particularly like the Icewing, but he had helped them. He carefully walked to the door before tripping again, knocking over several pieces of art which then shattered against the floor. He swore and shook his head. Blasted darts...
