The feline figure was undeterred by Furr's efforts, weaving around his vines and roots, her own shadowy tendrils cutting through any others in her way.

As soon as she reached the bottom of the stairwell leading up to the surface, she shadow jumped once, disappearing and reappearing on the grass outside, shaking her head at the disorienting vertigo longer jumps produced. The moment she took stock of her surroundings, however, she paused...not expecting to see a startled Darwing and confused Serafyn there, the latter stepping front of Darwing, feathers puffed...protective and ready to fight.

Furr bolts up the staircase after the figure and takes advantage of her confusion to launch himself at her back.

The figured stumbled, despite Furr's small size not quite expecting him to literally throw himself at her back. Still, it was hardly harmful, and a shadowy shockwave rippled out from her body, throwing him off her back, while also knocking the hood off her head, revealing her face. The figure was a lioness, with pale gray fur on her, paling to a creamy yellow muzzle, chin and neck. Her short, pixie-cut hair was a deep, muddy brown, and her eyes were a brilliant emerald green, darkened in anger. "You, squirt, are starting to annoy me," she snarled, raising an arm as if preparing to strike him, hard.

She never followed through, however, Sera choosing that moment to roar savagely, attracting her attention, before rearing her head back and spitting a voluminous gout of flames at the lioness, lighting the clearing up as the figure threw her arms up, vanishing into the inferno as it engulfed her. Shutting off the flow of flammable gas that was fuelling the flames, Sera snorted. Expecting to see a singed feline making a run for it when the flames died away. Her gas-based flame was bright and spectacular, but actually not nearly as hot as it looked, and therefore not as dangerous as it seemed in short bursts. Meant to scare more than injure or kill.

But instead, the lioness stepped out as the flames died out, a bubble of shadowy energy around her, having protected her completely, fizzling away along with the flames. Her eyes glinted dangerously. "Alright, forget annoyed, now I'm Popcorn and Pretzels off!" she cried, suddenly launching a arrow-like bolt of energy at Sera, the projectile moving rapidly across the clearing. Sera, caught off-guard, reacted slow...too slow to get out of the way.

"Sera!" with a desperate cry, Darwing, who had been cowering in fear behind his sister the whole time, suddenly leapt in front of her, on pure instinct a shield of high-pressure air forming in front of them, trying to protect himself and her from the shadow bolt. But given his lack of training, experience, and understanding on how his own magic worked, it was weak and flimsy, both it and the bolt shattering, Darwing making a high, yelping roar as the shards of shadow magic struck him, flailing back and crashing hard to the grass.

Furr steps back as Sera attempts to burn the intruder but as soon as the flame is gone he jumps at her again and latches onto the staff. He uses his momentum to swing around the staff as he grabs it, aiming a solid kick at the lioness's stomach.

The lioness' brief moment of triumph at having hurt the bigger of the two dragons was waylaid when the little quoll attacked once, the kick to the gut catching her by surprise. She recovered quickly, however, rolling as she fell back, grabbing Furr and hurling him harshly off the staff as she regained her feet, summoning a concentrated ball of dark energy in her hands. She clearly was done playing games, and ready to injure or kill to stop his tenacious attacks.

As she prepared however, a blast of white away came from somewhere to her right, hitting her shadow ball, the light and dark mixing and detonating in a powerful explosion that sent the lioness flying, tumbling across the grass to come to a standstill, groaning, the staff somehow still in her hand, having instinctively clutched onto it. Cursing under her breath, she got up, looking over at where the source came from, blinking seeing Serafyn there, the purple dragoness standing over Darwing's fallen form, her muzzle contorted in righteous rage, claws glowing with energy that rippled between light and shadow, something the lioness noticed, pausing in shock.

"Light and Dark...together?" she muttered. "But how is that...?" her musing was cut off as Sera launched another blast of Light power at her, her shadow magic rising to defend, the contact between the opposing elements once more causing a loud explosion to ring through the clearing. Each element had an opposite, another branch of elemental magic it did not mix well with. Light and Shadow were such a pair, and mixing tended to cause vicious backlash and magical backfires that resulted in heavy explosions, which continued to blast out as Sera's magic attacked the lioness with merciless fury.

"No-one touches my brother," she snarled, punctuating every few syllables with an attack. "No-one hurts a single scale on his hide, not while I'm around!" For a few moments, the two fought, Sera's raw power and impossible element mix surprising and overcoming the lioness' clear experience and finesse. In the end, however, Sera's own magic...which she had suppressed and kept a secret since she had first tried to use it, undid her, her magic mixing poorly, causing a feedback that made it explode in her face, making her flinch and stagger...just as a tendril of shadow struck her across the ribs, sending her crashing to the floor.

"You don't know what you're meddling in...any of you! Take a hint, and stay out of it!" the lioness spat, before focusing in the brief opening she had...vanishing in a burst of shadow energy, likely shadow-hopping out of the clearing, gone. Sera initially made to go after her, but soon realised that with her able to have gone potentially hundreds of meters in any direction, and was likely already running or shadow-jumping even further, gave a furious roar of frustration out into the woods, before turning and rushing back to Darwing's side, the yellow drake having not moved since he was struck down. "Dar!"

Furr swears before running over to the fallen dragon.
"You okay, Darwing?" he asks as he begins checking him over, starting by putting his ear against the reptile's chest to check for breathing and heart beat.

A quick check confirmed Darwing was alright, definitely alive and breathing, Sera sighing in relief seeing the tell-tale rise and fall of his ribcage. But the lioness' shadow bolt that he had tried to block with both magic and body had done some damage, his left shoulder and foreleg marred by a series of wounds from where the fragmented shards of shadow magic had struck him. There was very little blood, his scales doing a good job of protecting his shoulder from being cut open...but the force of the blows, strong enough to knock him off his feet, had jarred and bruised his shoulder beneath those scales, and many of his small, kite-shaped scaled were cracked, bent, and in some cases outright broken. They would regrow in time, however.

With a low groan, Darwing returned to full awareness, having gotten dazed and possibly a bit concussed when he had hit his head on the ground. He eased himself into a less awkward position, growling softly in pain as his head throbbed harshly when he lifted it. "Urgh...Sera...you okay?" he asked, the words slow and thick, still a bit out of it.

Serafyn could only chuckle in a mix of amusement and relief. "Yes, I'm fine, you silly thing," she muttered. "Thank you. Now, lie still and let Furr tend to you," she said, turning to the quoll himself. "You know how to properly removed damaged dragon scales, right?" she asked. While it was true that Darwing's scales would regrow, the current damaged ones would need to be removed first. While his body would shed them out naturally, the broken scales would pain him through the whole process, the sharp edges of the broken ones risking more cuts as well. Removing them would be both extremely painful for Darwing, and leave him having to be careful of the vulnerable exposed skin while the scales regrew, it would be much less painful for him once they were out.

Sera quickly noted with some alarm that Darwing, having hauled himself to a sitting position, was already trying to do so on his own, yelping as he grabbed a bent scale in his teeth, and removed it with a sharp pull, twitching slightly from the shock of pain that reverberated through his shoulder. If Furr knew anything about scale damage on a dragon, it was that Darwing's tempered reaction suggested a high pain tolerance, and his immediate move to remove the dangerous, damaged scales suggested it was a tolerance based on repeated familiarity. The young, painfully shy dragon was used to pain and broken scales, and plenty of it.

"Wait here. I have a better way to do this. I'll stop the pain too." The quoll appears to pop out of existence and then pops right back again not two minutes later holding his medical bag and a solid case.
"Now hold still and stop licking and pulling at it."[/color] The quoll pulls on some sterile gloves and pulls out a spray bottle. "This is an anaesthetic spray solution of my own creation. It'll soak around and under the broken scales and numb the area so I can remove them with no pain. It might sting for a moment though so don't bite or burn me, okay?"[/color] So saying the quoll squirts the damaged area liberally with his solution and then prepares a strange looking contraption as he waits for the drug to take affect.

The contraption, which he removes from the solid case, consists of a box from which two plates protrude. The plates have small horizontal ribs on their adjacent surfaces while the exterior surfaces are smooth. The edge of the plates is quite narrow, like a spatula, and they gradually thicken towards the box at their far end in which they apparently hinge. The quoll rolls a thin, disposable rubber sleeve over each plate and folds out some strong legs over which he slides some disposable plastic covers.
"It's my own invention." he explains to the dragons. "Given my stature, removing scales manually isn't easy. Luckily this little device can do it for me with the help of a few springs and gears. And the whole thing can be sterilised in the autoclave. The covers are just for hygiene and they make it easier to clean since there's less blood on the machine itself." He slides a cover onto a handle on the side of the box and then sits the machine on a sterile drape he's spread on the ground.
"How's the pain now?" Furr asks, picking up a probe. "Can you feel this? Or this? Or this?" he queries, poking several spots.

Darwing grimaced, nodding as Furr warned of the stinging from the anaesthetic spray, gritting his teeth as he waited for the pain. Once Furr starting squirting, however, Darwing's pain tolerance asserted itself, the young dragon blinking as the solution failed to cause nearly as much pain as he feared, only offering a slight twitch. "That...wasn't so bad," he muttered softly, seemingly to himself.

His nerves returned in full force, however, upon seeing the strange contraption, completely unfamiliar with it, and despite Furr's history of treating him well, still clearly frightened this was some kind of torture device. Only some soothing words and bird-like croons from Sera helped calm him down after a few moments, Furr's explanation seeing him nod in understanding, though his still eyed the decivce with a level on tense fear that, combined with his other jumpy habits, made him seem rather paranoid.

As Furr poked him, though, Darwing blinked realising that the spray had indeed numbed his shoulder, the normal burning, stinging sensation that came from being prodded around such scale damage never showing. "No...I can't feel anything," he admitted, somewhat relieved knowing this process would be a lot less painful now.

"Good." After confirming that the dragon isn't allergic to latex, the quoll slides the edge of one of the plates under the first of the broken scales and braces the legs of the device against the dragon. "Let me know if you feel any pain and I'll give you more anaesthetic." he reminds Darwing before leaning on the back of the box and shoving the lever forward. With a clunk the plates grip the scale and yank it out before parting and returning to their original position so that the removed scale is sitting in the machine. The quoll pulls the scale free and tosses it onto the grass before shifting the machine to the next scale and repeating the process until the broken scales are all removed. Next he removes dressings and bandages from his bag and binds the dragon's shoulder.
"Now. Do you have any other wounds? Does anything else hurt? How about you, Serafyn? Anything I need to take a look at?"
