Despite his natural inclination to stay in the back, the blond-haired man got impatient and shoved his way in ahead of the self-presumed 'hero'. He sighed as he saw the destruction, though his eyes went straight back to the Clipboard.
After reading only one line, his head snapped back up, squinting into the dark. The beams from his eyes narrowed, banishing the darkness, and leading him along.
Saying nothing to the others, he just continued along, occasionally checking the Clipboard to be certain of his path.

"Hey, seriously, are you just throwing us into a situation without any ideas at all?! That's poor planning, Mr...um whats your face Ibonek! And you!" he spun on the portal. He was indignat. How dare Clippy shove him out of the way! All he wanted was an answer to his question! "Don't you treat me like...like that! Hey, talking to you Clippy! Don't just walk away, hey!" Kikaru huffed, then ran through the portal after Dex. He was annoyed that he didnt get his question answered, but also annoyed by his perception of Dex's holier-than-thou type additude. Nobody ever gave him an additude like that, not even his older brothers. His teachers had tried, but he pulled out the I'll-kick-your-ass-or-maybe-have-dad-do-it card. Rarely these days would anyone even give the effort to act better than Kikaru.

He paid no initial mind to the scenery around him. He'd seen battle feilds and war before, this was nothing knew. He didnt even trip over the scarred terrain and he ran and caught Dex by the arm.

"Hey, you! You, you...um...clipboard fanatic! What's your deal?! Huh?!"

The blond-haired man nonchalantly snatched his hand away from the kid, only just avoiding nicking him with the sword. "I already told you - I'm a Deus Ex Machina. Look it up, if you like." He gave the Clipboard one last glance before slipping it back inside his pocket - at that point, he probably had to concentrate on the task at hand.

The place the Clipboard had pointed him to was the darkest in the entire area. He couldn't help but wonder what it was getting him into - was he going to rescue a bunch of hidden survivors? Find some carelessly-dropped yet important artefact? Or was the darn thing leading him into a fight, like it almost always did?

The Deus Ex Machina sighed. In any case, one thing was clear; wherever he was going, he was going alone, as per usual. And by alone, he meant, not with that hero-wannabe tagging along. "I have my own business to take care of, so why don't you head off with the others?" He flicked the dagger into his free hand. "...go get a crush on the hero's romantic interest or something."

He turned the lights in his eyes up, and raised his weapons in a rough approximation of stance. Putting it like that led to an interesting set of questions, and an amusing little jigsaw. This whole thing smacked of a story deal to him - so, where did all the different 'characters' fit in? Figuring that out would probably make a nice little shortcut to finding the Chosen One. Miyu fit the 'unnecessarily compassionate female who turns out to be the love interest' slot like a glove. That kid with the bottles - with her attitude, it was a wonder she'd had as many lines as she had before turning into red-shirted cannon fodder. The Majin, Luigi, would be an unwilling anti-hero at best. Unfortunately, that all meant that Kikaru was closest to the archetype of the 'hero'... though, he could only hope that he was right in his estimation of the kid as the secondary character who thought he was the hero. To be honest, out of the whole lot, only the Majin was worth rooting for as Chosen One.

And the blond-haired man? The Deus Ex Machina of the story, of course.

"Huh, crush? On who, them? What are you even talking about?!"

Kikaru was ticked at Dex. How dare Clippy just brush him off like that! Acting all cool and superior, that was something he couldn't take from someone else. Kikaru wasnt going to back down easy from this direct threat.

"And, and whaddya mean 'your own business'? We're here to save people, y'know, this isnt a time to just go off alone and do whatever! Easy way to get killed and never be found again if you ask me! Especially..." he waved his hand to the scenery around them, "...in this kind of deathly place. Who knows what could be out there." He stopped for a moment...only a moment to see that Deus was in a battle ready pose. Kikaru looked to where Deus was looking, then looked back at Dues. His hand brushed over his boomerang.

Still not backing down, Kikaru asked, "You see something there, Clippy?"

Sayuri looked at the destruction and whistled in approval. "Hot damn! This place is totaled." She took a precursory glance around. Nope, nothing alive. Didn't that just suck. Time to go home.

Oh wait, that's right! She couldn't go home. Because of those stupid portals. Yeah, she needed something to rough up right about now. Too bad that Sin-Jahk guy was nowhere to be seen. Then again, the way she remembered it, the bad guy only showed up after you kicked everyone else's ass.

...that wasn't such a bad idea. She tapped Miyu on the shoulder. "Hey you, dodge this!" She swung a quick left hook at the girl's face.

Miyu was still scanning the horizon before she was tapped on the shoulder, mind a little distracted with the desolation. Still, the words before the swing, were at least some slight warning even as her face showed suprise and confusion. What she had learned about fighting, mostly defensive, was that practice and repition of the basics was important, until the actions could come without thinking. She wasn't quite there yet, but she did manage to react to avoid taking the hook full in the face. She didn't quite dodge though, mostly just shifting herself a bit closer to Sayuri, while throwing her right arm up and at the arm hooking in, trying to meet the arm with equal force to block, cushion or slow the swing. Her left arm dropping down to her belt for something.

Though her unpreparedness delayed her actions a little so the blow still glanced into her cheek, reddening it, it was not nearly as hard as the original swing, face only turning to one side slightly with the knock before her right arm aimed to push the arm back and glare at Sayrui, eyes rather more watchful now, as she said in colder tones, "...What the hell was that for?". She didn't strike back, though the perhaps disregarded action of her left arm had been to slip back around her waist to subtly take a hold of the staff there. She wasn't intending to use it, but some moves without thinking were learned and kept out of caution.

The blond-haired man could have let himself get exasperated at the kid following him, but that... just wasn't him. May as well enjoy life... or unlife... or post-life... or whatever it is you call what Firrans get. He gave a slight smirk, though Kikaru didn't see it.

"For the third time, I'm a Deus Ex Machina." May as well give him the cliff's notes version so he'll stop asking. "Think of it like this. Imagine the worlds are filled with stories. Usually, those stories can manage themselves, from foundation to finale. Sometimes, though, they run into trouble that they can't resolve on their own - they need a little push in the right direction. And it's Dei Ex Machinis like me who give it." All the while he talked, he was still walking, deeper into the darkness. "So, I pretty much am what I said I am. A living - after a fashion - deus ex machina."

The Firran chuckled at Kikaru's observations. "Killed and never found, huh? You don't know much about Firrans, do you?" Don't worry about it too much. Kid's probably never hit on anything supernatural at all before today. "To put it simply, Firra is one of the places you go when you die. It's kind of a pre-requisite of being a Firran that you have to be dead already... and you can't really die twice. So, pardon me if I'm not too worried."

Of course, that wasn't to say that there weren't methods. Only the Soul was really immortal, and Firrans were pure Mind... but it would have made that last line of his considerably less cool-sounding if he actually added the disclaimer out loud. "Not yet. But it never hurts to be prepared."

Kikaru followed the Dues as they headed...somewhere. To him, it looked the area most burned, but everywhere around him was pretty damaged, so he couldnt be too sure. He kept his boomerang in his hand just in case.

"Fine, so you cant be killed, but that doesnt stop you from being stolen or trapped. This guy, Sin-Jak, sounds pretty damn powerful..." he smirked, "...Who knows, maybe your end all godmodder powers arent enough. Maybe this guy'll find a way to use it to his advantage, too. Be prepared, yeah?"

Kikaru didnt really beleive what the Dues was saying; it simply drove it home as to what a stuck-up, holier-than-thou person the Dues was. Kikaru could beleive that he was dead, maybe in some back corner of his mind. But the fact that everything was some kind of story? And that the Dues was here to make everything better? Tosh, loads of it. This guy didnt strike him as very much, and Kikaru found himself wondering vaugly how much pounding it would take until the Dues broke.

"If we're just going to fight amongst ourselves, then why the hell are we even here?" Luigi asked. "I would've thought we might at least try to find some trace of Sin-Jahk while we're here, but apparantly the lot of you are too damn stupid to stop fighting!" he yelled.

Let's see, thought the majin, the first girl is too violent to be able to think, the archer is too compassionate to be of any use in combat, the Machina is full of himself, but not quite arrogant, and the kid... the kid is a complete idiot.

*sigh*

I'm never gonna get out of this stupid game.

Miyu skillfully intercepted her swing, just as Sayuri had hoped. She had hardly put any force into that punch, but it was still a good test of her abilities. "...what the hell was that for?"

"If we're just going to fight amongst ourselves, then why the hell are we even here? I would've thought we might at least try to find some trace of Sin-Jahk while we're here, but apparently the lot of you are too damn stupid to stop fighting!" shouted the demonic Luigi clone.

The corners of Sayuri's mouth turned up in what could almost be called a smile. "Not bad." She retracted her fist casually. "Maybe you're not such a bad opponent after all." She turned to demon-Luigi. "Well, let's see here. Some mysterious organizer has brought us all together, and only one of us can be the 'Chosen One' who can defeat the Big Bad. I don't know about you, but I don't see the Big Bad so much as a whole bunch of already-dead people. That probably means the Big Bad's going to show up at the very end, maybe making a cameo appearance here and there. Where I come from, there are these things called 'fighting games', and this strikes me as a page from one. Or Highlander. Either way, we're probably going to end up fighting each other at some point, so it makes perfect sense for me to test the opposition, don't you think?"
