The Avriel had killed so many in his tenure as the Prince of Eternal Mercies. He had seen more blood spill out upon the ground than could possibly be recalled, had observed the crimson hues the same tint as his eyes leaking into cobbled stone and green grass. At the end of the trial, one more person would not make a dent in the proverbial graveyard, no matter whether they were the leader of a rival group, or simply another innocent pedestrian who had been squashed underfoot to feed the ambition and desire of the twilight hybrid and his band of gallivanting scum.
His attack was successful once more; the maneuver had been used several times in many different circumstances, and he had yet to see it fail. Humans and their fellow races who did not possess the winged appendages of the Avriel typically discounted them as if though they were worthless, because they could not possibly understand the value of such limbs. The fact that he possessed only a single wing certainly helped to intensify such feelings of worthlessness, and that in turn led his opponents not to gauge properly the ability it granted to him.
He mounted atop the downed knight, feeling him struggle underneath him, wriggling and writhing like some entrapped animal, desperate in his flailing. There was a glint of a knife, a sudden stabbing movement, and he twisted his head askance to avoid the attempts at jamming the blade into his monstrous eyes through the slit of his armet. He felt the briefest flickers of pressure as it stabbed worthlessly against the surrounding pieces of his armor, but he paid it little mind.
Noth dared not glare directly down at his enemy lest he receive the dagger through his armet, but he could feel him wriggle, and knew exactly where his center mass lay. With a practiced and steady hand, he raised up his mace to the sky, blotting out the sun with it for a mere trill before bringing it down with savage ferocity towards the collar bone of his enemy, fully intending to shatter the offending chunk of marrow through the armor of his foe.
