    "WH-EEHH!"

    The first Lizalfos fell from the mighty of the Sheikah's blade, but whilst he soon met the ground with a sudden face plant, he did manage to avoid the shadow blast given his falling forward. He would take a mouthful of dirt over a shadow blast to the back any day! But whilst he had hit the ground so unceremoniously, he was not about to give up! Oh no! Not him! He would use this new position to his advantage!

    "WHEHH!" With a mighty cry, the Lizalfos whipped his tail around hoping to trip the Sheikah woman up. Whether he hit or not, he would be set to quickly scurry around and right himself before resuming his own strategic hopping. No one could keep the mighty Lizalfos down for long!

    And that went just as strongly for the second one! He might have ended up with not one but TWO arrows in his stomach, but he had at least been able to dodge the painful chain of that smaller spawn. That metal would have hurt his head far too much! But now… now he could get some good payback in!

    "WHEH! WHEHH!" With a quick hop and another fierce cry, the second Lizalfos raised his sword and swung at the human woman with the crossbow. That would teach her to engage him with ranged combat instead of bringing it right to him!

    Impa's red gaze narrowed as she saw that the previous momentum from the slash of her blade had been even stronger than she herself had anticipated. It might have caused her shadow blast to miss, but it did land the Lizalfos face first on the ground… that alone enabled her to open up the next round with a new plan of attack. When an enemy was on the ground, one could very well find an advantage in fighting it… whether it ended with a fatal blow or simply a well-placed hit, it was always best to take the opportunity and make something of it.

    Whilst Chell had a good two arrows hit their marks, Sheik had the unfortunate luck to end up with her own strikes just barely missing her agile foe. It was frustrating for her young charge, and Impa certainly sympathized with her, but at least they both escaped that exchange unscathed… and even with her own target's attempt to catch her off guard, she was set to as well. Even with as swift as the Lizalfos were, Sheikah reflexes were far too keen to fall prey to such a maneuver.

    The instant she sensed that the Lizalfos was about to whip his tail around, Impa quickly hopped to avoid the sweeping attack. Her dodge completed and successful, she soon strafed around and dashed forward, Sheikah Blade drawn and ready to strike once whilst she followed up with two more slashes from her newly reformed Shadow Blade.

    Whatever sense of satisfaction Chell may have felt as a result of at least two of her arrows hitting their target, it was hard to hold on to that feeling at the sight of Sheik struggling like he was. The boy was putting up quite a fight, but luck did not seem to be on his side at the moment, as each of his strikes missed the Lizalfos completely. Okay, as annoying as they were, she would give the things this: they were slippery. Thankfully for them, slippery didn't always mean smart, or even infallible, and the former test subject knew her friend would be able to work out a decent counter attack soon enough. Still... that didn't mean that she couldn't feel frustrated for him. Just a little. Nostrils flaring, she eyed the newly freed beast, one ear paying close attention to the commotion behind her. If she was hearing things right, then at the very least Impa seemed to be getting some decent hits in, and she was prepared to keep this creature's attention focused on her for as long as needed in order to let her get the job done. Taking a couple of steps backward, Chell's hands tightened instinctively on her crossbow, seizing the creature up for the best possible place to aim at. 

    In retrospect, it was a good thing she had been paying such close attention, otherwise she might have been seriously hurt. With yet another ear piercingly high squeal, the second Lizalfos evidently decided it'd had enough ranged combat for the time being, suddenly leaping towards her and causing her to stumble back a couple of strides, just barely missing it's blade. Feeling her heart pounding in her ears at the unexpected surge of adrenaline, Chell scrambled to throw her crossbow over her shoulder, hands flying instantly to the sheath belted to her hips. Well, here was her chance to try out this thing.

    Finally unsheathing her Sheikah dagger, the former test subject brandished the weapon threateningly over her shoulder, keeping her eyes trained on the creature for any kind of opening. Spotting her chance, she leapt forward and attempted to slash at it three times with her blade, aiming for whatever vulnerable parts of the body were in eyesight.

    Sheik's face fell as she realized that not a one of her chain strikes had connected with the Lizalfos. The lizard beast had been able to dodge him just in time, but as frustrating as her own turn of bad luck was here, it was not enough to discourage the disguised princess. If anything, it only bolstered her further for the next round of attack.

    Both attacks from the Lizalfos thankfully missed, and as such, Sheik was more primed than ever to retaliate. As Impa dodged and attacked the monster she was facing, the other beast sought to charge their friend with a strong slash of its blade. As the sword went up, Sheik's red eyes widened as she called out, "CHELL!" She was ready to pull a Sheikah Vanish to try and help at least lessen some of the damage for the former test subject, but thankfully, the monster's focus on power instead of accuracy coupled with Chell's own stumbling back caused the attack to end up as a near miss instead of a critical hit.

    Letting out a quick sigh of relief at that, Sheik soon narrowed her eyes slightly, smirking a bit in pride as she saw Chell pull out her Sheikah dagger to fight back, landing all three attempted strikes with perfect accuracy. Perhaps melee combat could prove to be the former test subject's forte as well… and in this case, also a good opening for her own attack.

    Suddenly disappearing on the spot before reappearing behind the Lizalfos, Sheik unleashed her chain, hoping to strike the monster at three different points to follow up on the last attack from her friend.

    "WHEH--HH?!"

    As though a faceplant and strike leading up to it weren't enough, his tail whip was not effective! Not at all! He did not trip her up! But at least he had got to his feet, so now he could better retaliate. No sooner had he begun his strategic and slippery hopping around though than he was met yet again! "WHEHH!"

    "WHEH-AAH!"
    The Lizalfos cried, soon finding his body struck with both the steel of the Sheikah's blade as well as her blade of shadows. He knew that this target was serious, but even so, she was strong! Very strong! Too strong for his liking! He had to act fast to take her down before she could do the same to him! Still reeling from the hit dealt to him, the Lizalfos pulled back and slashed towards her, hoping to have better luck with his sword than his tail.

    As for his brethren, the second Lizalfos was not happy at all. The arrows had been bad enough, but this dagger HURT. "WHEHH!" How had this human seen such an opening in his expert jumping?! And how had the small spawn suddenly appeared and landed a painful strike with that chain?! LEAPING AND STRIKING WAS HIS JOB!

    His beady eyes focusing on the woman that sought to engage him with her own blade, the Lizalfos let loose a might strike with his sword, punctuating the blow with a mighty "WHEHH!"

    Impa was pleased with the two hits she landed against the Lizalfos, but even with that success, she was not about to let her guard drop even in the slightest. These monsters were as resilient as they were swift, and despite their ever decreasing stamina, she knew very well that they would fight until their very last breath. They had been that way ever since the days of their ancestors, and whether they were in Hyrule or on the Breach, that fact would never change.

    As Chell and Sheik tag-teamed the second Lizalfos with a knife and chain combination, Impa caught a quick glance at their progress before immediately shifting her focus back to the monster she was engaged with. He was still staggering from the two strikes she had met him with, but despite that, he had already prepared his blade to counterattack.

    Her red eyes widened as she quickly caught the trajectory of this strike… given her current position, this was one that was more dangerous to dodge than to take. Growling a bit as she braced herself for the block, Impa quickly raised her left arm to parry the attack as best she could, but whilst she avoided more damage than she otherwise might have, the Lizalfos still connected with a decent hit. The fresh cut on her arm was nothing that a red potion or even some Lon Lon Milk could not fix, and even though it hurt, it was not about to slow her down at all.

    Instead, Impa was prepared to fight back even stronger.

    Focusing inward to draw out more of her true power, the Sheikah resheathed her blade and dashed forward to close the distance between the Lizalfos and herself. A split second later, she threw a solid left straight to the beast's chest, just before following up with an even stronger right. As soon as she landed the one-two punch, Impa forced both palms forward, sending a powerful blast of shadow energy towards the Lizalfos.

    The Eye of the Sheikah did not merely connect… no, as soon as the third hit had found its mark, the monster was sent flying backwards, only to land directly on its back. The Sage of Shadow kept her own stance, not about to let her foe recover that easily from her attack.

    Chell staggered backwards after landing her attack, breath coming hard and fast. Close combat battles were something she could safely say she had little to no experience with--at least, not in this way--and the fact that she'd managed to strike the creature without killing herself was both empowering and satisfying. The knife, like the crossbow, felt oddly comfortable in her hand, just the right length for her to get some shots in without overstretching herself. Careful to keep on her toes, the former test subject fixed the Lizalfos in front of her with a challenging stare, eyes hard with intensity as she began to circle the thing, waiting for it to make the move she was certain would come. Intelligence, she was beginning to realize more and more, was not one of this creature's strong points, as they seemed pretty convinced that whatever they had been failing to accomplish before would begin to work if they just tried it one more time, regardless of the evidence to the contrary. The general "hopping and slashing" strategy they had been exercising so far didn't look like it was about to change anytime soon.

    Again... predictable. She had dealt with much worse. If there was one thing she could say for them though, it was that they had at the very least managed to give her a splitting headache.

    Catching Sheik reappearing out of the corner of her eye, Chell felt a tiny swell of satisfaction as his chain made contact with the creature, even if it was only one blow out of three. Any progress was good progress in her humble opinion, and hearing Impa land what seemed to be a pretty impressive hit behind her only further boosted her mood. They had also most definitely succeeded in pissing off their opponent even more, although at this point, she wasn't really sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing. For the moment, she was going to go with "good", even if the sight of the Lizalfos making another swing towards her was almoooost enough to make her want to reconsider that.

    Grunting, the woman quickly ducked out of the way, inwardly chiding herself for such another close call. This new, lower vantage point did have it's benefits, however... seeing her chance, Chell flung herself at the creature before it could take another leap, slashing her blade at whatever open patches of skin she could find.

    Sheik's attack with her chain only landed one truly damaging hit out of three attempts, but that strike's primary focus as a follow up was indeed successful. Hopefully, she would have a little more luck on her next attempt, but as it was, she was still pleased to see that she and Chell were steadily wearing the Lizalfos down. From the look of things, Impa's was on his last legs, her powerful Eye of the Sheikah combination landing him squarely in his final moments.

    As ever, the reptilian foes were swift and resilient, but just as she had defeated several back in Hyrule, the disguised princess was determined to take care of these two just the same.

    As Chell ducked out of the way of the latest attack from their own Lizalfos, Sheik strafed around and back to the side, quickly returning her chain to its holding position in her Hyrulean storage space before she focused a bit more on the hopping enemy. He was definitely weakening, but he still had too much stamina for the two of them to be able to finish him off just yet. Getting a better read on him, her red eyes narrowed slightly as she decided that a change of strategy was in order… and thankfully, the next attack that Chell unleashed helped set her up for just the idea that she herself had had in mind.

    Taking a familiar stance, Sheik raised both of her arms, holding her left arm straight out and her right arm back slightly as though she was actually holding a bow. A second after she focused inwardly, a faint glow began to shine from her hands before it formed into a bow of pure light magic. As she drew her right arm back further, a Light Arrow appeared as well, drawing the magical string tight as she targeted the Lizalfos.

    The disguised princess' new vantage point held the Lizalfos right in her sights whilst the former test subject was safely out of range… and in the blink of an eye, before their scaly foe could retaliate, Sheik unleashed her Light Arrow, aiming right for the center of the monster's body.

    ----

    Light Arrow (effect):

    --Whilst she does not always carry an actual bow on her person, Princess Zelda is actually a rather accomplished archer. In an attack that combines her archery prowess with her magic skill, she summons a bow and arrow of light, drawing the attack as though she were pulling a real arrow back. With the magic summoned in both of her hands, she fires a Light Arrow at the target in an attempt to damage them and inflict burn damage.
