    Keira

    “Perhaps this prey is a bit more than you can handle...” Keira teases, as she slips out of her clothes to free her form for the upcoming transformation.

    A moment later, she sinks to the ground on all fours, growing dark fur and sharp claws. Hissing at the ghoul, the large cat pounces their assailant easily clearing the distance between them in a single leap.

    The ghoul, however, is no stranger to physical violence and reacts quickly to the leap attack by blocking Keira's claws with his own and taking a step back to avoid the large cat pouncing right into him.

    The rebutted ghoul inside with Juno and Malcom looks a bit more hesitant now, but the fire is still in his eyes as he looks Juno straight in the eyes. Slowly, he puts his back to the wall and starts to move to where he can see both Juno and Malcom. He spits on the ground in front of him and flexes his fingers, saying nothing now, his lips curled in a look of contempt on his naturally disfigured face. With a quick move, he darts suddenly toward Juno, but she's ready for it, and his reaching claw makes no contact. Growling, he spins around, trying not to lose track of the two opponents.


    Outside, this ghoul is more confident. Untouched, he smiles at the two combatants. Even when the woman changes form, he stays unfazed. Deciding to continue his attack against the large burly one, his fists fly forward, sweeping at Logna's chest. Logan is barely able to escape the razor sharp arcs of the claws, but the blunt force of the creature's fists make contact, knocking the wind out of the changeling.

    "What's going on? What's-" Mara's voice is cut off as she stares at the monster before her. It's obvious that while she might have had some kind of introduction to the supernatural world from Sandra beyond her own meager abilities, she's never seen any non-human of this nature before. Her voice just stops mid stride and she becomes completely still in an instant. Then after a half a second, she starts trembling uncontrollably.

    Taking a leap back to regain his footing, the ghoul smiles broadly at Mara, a ghastly sight, its eyes narrowing, and licking its lips.

    Malcom smiled at Juno's quip, looks were always deceiving in the world of the supernatural. Juno was a stunning female form, but no mere mortal could throw punches like that into a super speed Ghoul. It had given the creature a moments pause.

    The Ghoul had as a result of the blow, brought his full attention onto the young lady that was hitting like a mac truck and reduced his attention on the guy with the sword that was approaching from behind.

    Malcom's blade darted through the air as the Ghoul moved on Juno with deadly purpose. Much as before however, the Ghoul seemed to underestimate the Jaguar warrior.

    Malcom aimed for the creature's head, hoping for a death blow as his blade approached the creature from behind, but the Ghoul was just too fast. The Ghoul moved to avoid Malcom's blade, and its sudden movement caused the blade to miss its intended target and instead rake across its shoulder. Slick red blood coated the edge of the blade as Malcom withdrew it back to a defensive position.

    Damnit, this thing is so fast I can barely draw a bead on it.

    Juno was in the moment. It was always like that in a fight, and never more than when fighting something that went bump. When the claws came, she swatted the ghoul's wrist aside and stepped not back, but forward...inside it's guard.

    It was still gasping, so she worked the body. A quick flurry of jabs, forcing it to move, to work, making that short breath hurt it. It came after her, hissing and panting, and she rewarded it with a big right cross when it was too tired to use that speed it had. All the speed in the world meant nothing if you didn't have the breath to use it.

    It rocked back, and Malcolm jumped into the opening with that completely illegal to carry sword of his, opening up a big gash on it's shoulder the way not even Juno's punches could. Made her think about looking into practicing more with weapons, because that was a fight-ender. Or would have been on a human.

    "Now," she said to the reeling, bleeding ghoul. "About who hired you."

    Logan takes a deep breath and rolls his shoulders, facing the ghoul calmly. But his eyes widen as Mara comes out of the house. "Mara, back in the house!" he bellows as he starts to rush toward her. He takes a wide swing near the ghoul, simply to force it to back off, and closes the distance to the young woman in rapid order. The half-ogre picks her up bodily and runs her back into the house. Inside, he sets her back down (if a little roughly) and growls, "What part of 'get somewhere safe' did you not understand," as he turns to face the backdoor. He hefts his sledgehammer again, ready to defend Mara from the ghoul if it dared to come inside.

    Outside, Keira circles around the ghoul, drawing its attention in order to have him turn his back to the house, where Logan just vanished. This way, Mara will be safer, and once Logan comes back they will have the ghoul in the middle between them, and at a disadvantage. If her face would still be human, one could see a smile forming on Keira's lips, this kind of cat-and-mouse play was definitely to her liking.

    Bloody and bludgeoned, the ghoul inside with Juno and Malcom grabs its shoulder wound, dark and thick blood oozing between its clenched fingers. The look on its face isn't quite the pure malice that it was a few seconds ago. Now there's something else there, fear underneath the grimacing mask of its malformed face? It quickly glances toward the back door, licks its lips, and makes a dash for it.

    The thing is fast, and its opponents have no time to react before the ghoul reaches the door frame. As their heads whip around to follow it, the two can see it stumble for a moment. As fast as its initial movements, it looks like the wounds it took are slowing it down. It pauses at the door, for only a moment but long enough to matter, looking left and right and squeezing its shoulder a second time. A few moments later, it takes off again - away from where Keira and the other ghoul are - and into the falling darkness of sunset.

    It's companion outside isn't about to be left behind. The one fighting Logan and Kiera isn't hurt, but it is now cornered in by Keira, who is now in full were-form. This isn't quite what it thought it was getting itself into, and the sight of a bloodied ally fleeing a scene is enough to make anyone question the need of sticking around. Even a ghoul. It darts right then left to try to escape, and as fast as it is, Keria in her were form is just as fast. Precious seconds pass, and it takes all the ghoul has to just get out from against the wall. By the time it manages to break free, the other is just turning the opposite corner, and it turns the other way, running around the side of the house, but twisting its head around behind it to keep an eye on the cat as it runs toward the street.

    "Mother..." Juno muttered a curse as the ghoul made a break for it. It wasn't FAIR that something that huge and strong would ALSO be that fast. That was the trouble with fighting spooks. They were spooky. There was always something about them that bent the world's pinky back, laws of nature-wise.

    ...not that she was much better, truth be told. But at least she wasn't so obvious about it.

    Fortunately, if there was one thing that both of Juno's jobs called for, in abundance, it was chasing perps down. She'd had plenty of experience at it, and she'd gotten very good at it.

    She was already pelting to the door when the ghoul paused to look back, and she almost had it then. But it whipped out and around the corner almost too fast to see, leaving her to dash after it, vaulting over the low hedge to cut the next corner and get a little ground back.

    Her gun wasn't out. The last thing she needed was to have to explain shots fired in this neighborhood. Bullets were accounted for. You couldn't just show up with an empty chamber. Sooner or later she'd have to get a gun for her 'other' duties, but she wasn't made of money...a good handgun was expensive...

    There it was...it and a friend. The one she was after had made the front yard and was heading away. The other one had gotten pinned down by...a panther? No, Keira. With that stupid speed, it had pulled free, but hadn't gotten far. Juno left that one to the others. She was focused on the one she'd been fighting. And truth was, now that it was a straight up footrace, it wasn't pulling ahead anymore. It could handle corners without lip service to inertia, but running flat out...especially with its injuries...was giving Juno an edge. She was going to get it!

    Then...she stopped, blood draining from her face. She scuffed to a stop on the edge of the lawn and reversed course, jumping behind that big old tree in the front yard. "Keira! Malcolm! Logan! Heads down! Under cover!" Now her gun came out, but she stayed behind that tree...for some reason.

    Malcom was less surprised that the Ghoul turned and run, he had been expecting it from the moment it went toe to toe with Juno. Ghouls were never bright enough to pick their targets well and the smaller framed Police officer was deceptively strong for her size.

    Malcom was however, completely unprepared for the Ghoul to choose that moment to flee. Malcom bolted out the back door, following the speedy ghoul around the corner of the house. Malcom was not nearly fast enough to keep pace with the the creature, years of cigarettes injuring his lungs and a lack of superspeed built into his body's functions gave the ghoul a significant advantage.

    Problem is, wizards cheat.

    Malcom concentrated for a moment as he rounded the corner, gathering his will and focusing it into his blasting rod. He quickly raised it like a cowboy whipping his pistol up during a draw and aimed it square at the back of the ghoul, sending a wave of invisible energy in a single focused pulse more powerful then most bullets.

    The pulse cut along the ghouls side as it threw itself out of the way, barely dodging the knock out blow. "Damnit." Malcom was about to fire again, when Juno's warning finally clicked in his head, Malcom's attention shifting from the fleeing ghoul to the coming car.

    Logan sees the ghoul dash past Keira and make a break for it around the side of the house. He growls, then looks at Mara. "Please listen this time when I say stay here." The half-ogre turns and rushes for the front door, tossing it open (and nearly yanking it off the hinges) and running out to the front yard.
