Fulgur walks through the spooky forest,glancing around warily. He'd heard of a small navi town needing help from...something, and so he'd journeyed to come do what he can. He may not be ONB yet, but the young navi could at least to do what they do, or attempt to,at any rate.Fulgur looks further down the path,sighing. Here's hoping he got there soon...
A black shape lurked in the shadows that seemed to dart between the trees, as if trying to avoid the few beams of light poking through the thick foliage of the trees. The shape was cradling a navi in one of it's arms, the other one was pulling the navi's head back. From a distance it did not look unlike that of a lover's embrace, but closer up revealed a much darker reality. The dark clad navi was in fact biting down on the other navi's neck. Small trickles of data escaping as he dug in ravenously.
The dark clad navi gave off a chilling aura about him, manifesting as a slow burning flame. As he feasted on his prey, the flames enveloped his victim and consumed them. In the end, he was still not satisfied. He had been here plaguing the town with the sole intention of attracting would-be heroes. Start plucking off the strongest in the village, then start picking off villagers here and there. It was only a matter of time before someone worthy of being called an opponent came looking for him.
There was an eerie silence as he listened for a moment. Nothing. He decided to send out some feelers in the form of "thralls." Radiating a dark aura once more, the darkness pooled around him at his feet and stretched out in all directions in narrow streams. Each stream then rose up, slowly taking form. It was like watching someone emerging from a pool. Only the people rising were mere shadows of their former selves. Their appearances were mostly unchanged, albeit darkened as their eyes burned a pure red. With a mere wave of his hand, the zombie-like navis shambled off to flush out any potential travelers.

Fulgur continues along the path, his cloak fluttering behind him. He had to find this village...The young Navindidnt want to be stuck here all night.Then, he tilts his head,hearing rustling. His helmet unfolds as one of his hands transforms into a buster shaped like the head of a snarling wolf.The eyes flash once as Fulgur raises it." Who's there?"
"There!" Nightwalker's eyes widened, sharing some of the sensory information from his thralls. On Fulgar's end, he would see as aforementioned a "normal" net navi. The only notable warning he would have that something was awry was the pure, red burning eyes of the net navi. And where there was one, there would be more. Seeing Fulgar, the thrall armed it's buster and prepared to fire at him.
Others came to it's aid, but Fulgar would see the numerous red eyes shambling through the darkness first. Nightwalker meanwhile moved at high speed, darting through the trees like an agile shadow. How would Fulgar react to seeing some of the very navis he came to help suddenly brandish their weapons against him? What would he do now? But more importantly, was he powerful enough to be considered an opponent? Once the other thralls were within eyesight of Fulgar, they too would arm their blasters and fire at him.
Fulgur blinks, sighing in relief as he sees its just a villager, and apologizes, his voice soft.." Aah...e-er...uhm...S-sorry about t-that....Do you need any help?" Then, the navi points its buster at him, firing. He dodges, his eyes widening." D-did I do something?" He begins to prepare for defending himself, but blinks. Those eyes...Hmm, it might be normal, but there was a chance it might be something else....he had to make sure before deleting it.He slices down a branch, rushing at the navi and knocking it down. Seeing others surrounding him, all with glowing red eyes and darkened, the young navi nods.Fulgur figured something was controlling them..but what? He grunts as a buster shot slams into his shoulder armor, and crouches down. He had to work on pacifying them....And so, he went to work, doing his best to stop them without hurting them.
Nightwalker became increasingly aware of his new target. He chose not to delete them on sight, as most probably would after seeing their darkened visage. Perhaps if they were just being controlled, his non-lethal tactic would work. But these navis' entire beings had been absorbed by him. They in essence became part of him. And the navi he had "downed" without slowing down, raised it's buster again and fired at Fulgar. The others followed suit and didn't let up, flashes of buster fire lighting up the darkness.
Fulgar's situation only grew more dire, as Nightwalker not only finally arrived, but launched a flying drop kick for Fulgar's back.

Fulgur dances around rapidly, trying to avoid the shots heading for him, grunting as more slam into his armored form.He looks in shock as the navi he'd downed gets back up, firing at him. The bullet slams into his forehead, and his helmeted head snaps back, sending him staggering.Then, this leads to him falling as a weight slams into the navi's back.Fulgur rolls with the kick, deflecting most of the damage as his now tattered cloak streaming behind him. Straightening up, Fulgur turns, seeing a navi that seemed....different from them. Betting on the chance that this was the one controlling these pour souls, he drops the stick, his hand transforming back into his buster."......You're the one doing this, aren't you? I'm sorry, but for the good of the innocent, I must delete you!" He raises the weapon, rushing at the mysterious navi as Yips dart out of the wolfs mouth and hopefully slamming into the vampire. Getting closer, the boy forms a his buster sword, the forward curving blade pushing back the darkness. Lightning courses amongst the buster fangs, and the blades size increases. Fulgur lashes out rapidly, trying to overwhelm his foe quickly. 2/7 battle
His attack landed in the midst of the chaos, creating space between the pair of them as Nightwalker touched back down. His apparent cape enveloping his body from the neck down to conceal any possible weapons he may have armed while Fulgar made his mushy, heroic speech. Nightwalker used his total control over his thralls to literally pull some of them to his defense, using them as shields to block the small spheres of electricity AND the initial sword attack. But his thralls could not bear the full brunt of Fulgar's attacks, forcing Nightwalker to jump upwards and onto the branch of a tree behind him
Which fortunately also put him out of range of Fulgar's other sword attacks. "You rush head first to attack me in the dark, even while you are still surrounded by my thralls," Nightwalker states matter of factly, the thralls he had used for meat shields dispersing back into dark energy. They weren't even deleted, they would simply return to him to be used again later. "Brave or foolish, in the end your power will make me stronger!" Nightwalker adds as a purple light flashes beneath his cape.
A second later and he throws one side of his cape back to aim a buster at Fulgar, which he fires. No matter if Fulgar blocked it, or moved out of the way, Nightwalker's remaining thralls took aim next and followed up with buster shots of their own.

Fulgur gasps as his attacks hit the navis instead. No....nooooooooo...He didn't mean to, he really didn't...Please, please dont be deleted.....The young navi grits Hus teeth,pushing on. Unfortunately, the vampire jumps to a tree, taunting him.Angered by his using of innocent navis, Fulgur fires back." And you need to use others to do your dirty work!!" He blinks, seeing the wounded navis dissipate. So they were just energy? The boy notices NW raising a weapon, and dodges, but distracted, he's hammered by all the thralls. He shudders in place as the buster shots slam into him. They stop, and he falls.....The beaten form lies still for a bit, but his fist clenches, and he stands up, panting and looking at the vampire.".....Where there is...dark...there....is light." He breathes in, streamers of lightning forming from the environment and flowing into his mouth. Most of the manage he sustained dissapears, though a few dings were visible. The recovered navi raises his buster, shooting at Nightwalker quickly enough to form a veritable wall of Yips. Battle 3/7
Nightwalker was just thinking that this was over and done with, taking into account the fact his opponent had endured constant barrages of buster fire from his thralls. But was pleasantly surprised when he gained a second wind. He was THRILLED to see his opponent get back up, it proved that he was indeed worthy enough to be called his opponent. He was less pleased with the wall of literal electricity now hurling toward him, however.
There were too many to reasonably move out of the way, and his thralls were too far to pull to his aid either. So he simply used his cape and braced himself before being slammed by the wall, and knocked off his perch. Though the idea of a navi feeling pain was absurd, he still felt the sting of electricity as it ravaged his data before he landed on the ground feet first.
"As long as you hesitate to do what is necessary, you will not beat me," Nightwalker stated, followed by another volley of shots from his remaining thralls as if making a point. He used the momentary distraction to slip off, darting between the trees for an opening. When one finally came, Nightwalker erupted from the darkness with a Buster sword attack.

Fulgur nods as Nightwalker is knocked off his perch." Surrender, please, I do not wish to delete you." Then, he's told that unless he stops hesitating, Fulgur will not win.The boy was about to respond with a blast to the face, but he hears busters firing. He begins to dodge. He was really starting to get tired of this...Fulgur considers. Okay, those others had dissapeared in a way unlike normal deleted navis.....Could it be that they were just constructs? Fulgur decides to take a chance, and blasts back at them. He hears a rustling sound behind him, and spins, but too late. The navis feels a line of fire trace down his armor, data spilling out. He grunts, and locks blades with the vampire, rearing a clenched fist, sending it whistling at where Nightwalkers nose would be.
His thralls being mostly zombies, didn't even know what dodging was and were blasted. Most of them going down while others were simply staggered. And Nightwalker takes the punch, not even bothering to move as he is driven back. Back flipping away to put distance between them as the last two thralls continued to open fire mercilessly. It was time to end this, he had seen enough and he was not one to play with his food. "I will show you now the actual difference between us," Nightwalker stated throwing his arm out at his side.
By silent command, the last remaining thralls simply dispersed. Returning to dark energy, they returned with the slain thralls to Nightwalker's body which was giving off a very frightening aura. His entire body was enveloped by dark energy, making it even darker if that was even possible. The only thing that was visible now were his red glowing eyes. Little by little the darkness receded, revealing parts of his body one after the other.
When the darkness completely faded, he was wearing more armor and his cape now looked like a pair of legitimate bat wings. His face looked more robotic, but was really just protected by more armor. Rearming his buster which now had what looked like four clawed digits clasping around the barrel, he fired at Fulgur and would destroy the tree behind him if he moved. He continued firing, keeping his aim steady as he walked toward Fulgur whilst still firing his buster.
