    HhhhwwwwooooOOOOOoooooooo....

    Strong gusts twisted over the wastelands, stirring up clouds of fine sand in rolling plumes. Every now and again their paths would cross over, slapping against a rather isolated building much like a ceaseless tide of earth against worn brick. Against steel plating however, the noise drew into a low hiss, echoing within its spacious confines and past the jarred hangar doors, nearly sealed in place from years of sand catching in the sliding tracks. A sound that gave the illusion of something dwelling, nay, lurking where the rays of relentless sun could not reach, where the shadows of old rusted equipment and wiring left to rot melded and became something more... Sinister.

    At once, something banged about, motion clear within the dome's abandoned walls. It came closer, bouncing, swiftly racing across the sand coated floor... A mere tumbleweed rolled forth from the neglected innards, sporting a dull coat of oil and dust before ushered away by a passing breeze. Yet the foreboding aura of the place still loomed.

    Perhaps the work of an imagination gone awry, or maybe there was a hint of truth to the appearance?

    Either way, the building was silent as it had been, save for the echoing hiss of sand against metallic paneling and brick.

    The howling winds of the Wastelands did not bother Lawrence in the slightest, not even when the sound seemed to turn more foreboding than expected. His optics scanned the dark recesses of the ruined robotics factory, not immediately spying his prey, but then he knew this wouldn't be that simple. With a bit of hidden backup not far behind him, he felt more confident in his exploring, but managed not to let it show.

    If it truly was NOS-4-A2 he was hunting here, and even if it wasn't, the butler was ready for quite a battle indeed. Just, the sheer arrogance of bothering them at their home was nearly reason enough to try and scrap the vampire, and with all the other things done over the years, it was only natural that Lawrence was eager to get this over with. If this was going to be their last battle, he intended to be the victor.

    Lawrence stalked across the metal floor of the Tech-dome, his thoughts turning darkly amused. NOS-4-A2 had to be around here somewhere... "Come out, come out, wherever you are . . ."

    As light as the butler's metallic feet were, his voice managed to ring in the air, caught in the ears of one he may or may not be all expecting. Something flashed in the shadows, a flicker of blue metal reflecting in what rays of light could penetrate the darkness. Whereas behind him, the aged doors were not as static as they appeared.

    SHRRRRIIIIIIIIII-CRUNCH!

    In a flash the hangar doors snapped shut like a hungry maw, worn metal smashed and warped around each other in painful fusion. To pry them apart would mean the use of a strong blowtorch, should the robot have such a tool on his person. Though what lay in front of him, the darkness now all encompassing, was more disconcerting, as a pair of crimson, glowing eyes flashed to life. However, there was no banter, no disdainful remark. Only one sound echoed about the now sealed dome, an ear splitting and horrendous din.

    "AAAAAAUUUUUUURRRGH!"

    Claws outstretched and maw twisted in an open snarl, the energy vampire came for you, Lawrence! Thrice the metallic construct swiped at the robot, sparks flying from sharp talons as it rent the nanotech from his adversary's very frame!

    All right, the doors practically being welded shut behind him was something of a surprise to Lawrence, but he didn't let it faze him for long. He quickly switched to his night vision in the total darkness, and in the very instant he did so, there was one irate energy sucker flying right at him!

    Two of the three heavy swipes tore into his nanotech's barrier, doing a surprising amount of damage to it. Another strike like that and the barrier would drop completely. Lawrence was getting a bit more worried now; the last time they had fought, NOS-4-A2 wasn't nearly this strong! Still, it was not like he expected this to be an easy fight, so he grit his proverbial teeth and counterattacked, quantum energies flowing into his rifle as he unloaded an accelerated round at his adversary. There would be no avoiding it with how close together they were.

    After having tried to blast his opponent away from him, the butler snarked, "I think you've been working out too much, NOS-4-A2; I feel as if I've been punched by Captain Qwark!"

    BAM!

    With a pained shriek the vampire twisted away from the other robot, lattices flaring wide to gain altitude. Around it the room was bathed in a red glow, wiring and rusted heaps of mechanical contraptions lay strewn about. The accelerated shot was certainly not foreseen, though at the same time NOS-4-A2 did not find it unwelcoming either. Electricity arced between its fangs as he gave an electronic hiss, having reached the height of his climb. However, the quip that compared the robot to a Captain Qwark remained hanging in the stale air, its monocle-like optic rotating in a way nearly akin to a predator's eye quickly dilating and contracting with focus.

    Fwzzmp!

    The room was immediately shrouded in darkness once more, the dull whisper of air over poised talons nearly unperceived over another shrill scream. Again the energy vampire dove upon Lawrence's armed form, intent on digging its plated claws into the robot's shoulders, ripping at what remained of his nanotech covering in an effort to shred his joints.

    Another unholy shriek pierced the air as the energy vampire dived to attack Lawrence again. Again, the slashes were much harder than he was expecting, his barrier fading at the first strike and actual damage being done to his metal hide on the third. He staggered backwards, bringing one hand up to the ragged gash in his plating. Thankfully no coolant or servo fluid was leaking out yet, but the damage still hurt. He shut off the pain sensors in that area as best he could, then tried to line up his rifle for another round of attacks.

    The butler didn't dare voice what he was thinking, as saying 'this is impossible' usually resulted in a swift death for any villain. Old habits died hard, so he kept silent for the moment and and unloaded three shots at the energy vampire, hoping to do more damage this time.

    Hnnngh, why did this always seem to happen when facing NOS-4-A2? Lawrence could have all the confidence in the world and still end up in trouble rather quickly, it infuriated him to no end. Was he ever going to be able to defeat the energy sucker?

    Impossible? Maybe and maybe not, after all what could the energy vampire have done during his stay in the penitentiary... Regardless, the robot would have no choice but to believe it possible, he was witnessing firsthand the raw power NOS-4-A2 possessed. Three shot ripped away from the rifle barrel, its icy energy evaded once, twice...
    "Argh!" The third hit its mark, a blast of cold running up the energy vampire's belly plating. A sharp hiss echoed through the abandoned factory , claws briskly scraping away the excess frost as the robot's head turned to leer down at the butler.

    Such confidence the smaller robot had in his shots, what trust he had in his weaponry. It made NOS-4-A2 wonder, a riddle posed within its ever churning processors. Another flash of red lit up the dome with a crackling clap of electricity, the energy vampire's luminous wings and polished body reduced to a furious streak of color. Talons cruelly curved and maw agape in a scream, it dove down upon Lawrence. Their teryllium tips dug into the robot's body like large knives, another powerful beat of NOS-4-A2's wings intending to lift his adversary from the ground and send him flying into a nearby wall with the momentum.

    Indeed, Lawrence was knocked off his feet from the momentum and cast into the nearest wall, but the impact wasn't as hard as the vampire might've been hoping for. He still felt he got a bit of a dent somewhere, though. Picking himself off the floor, he regarded NOS-4-A2 still in the air. Something about this felt off, though he couldn't put a finger on why--

    Wait, why was NOS only focusing on using his talons? Shouldn't he have tried to bite and drain some energy at least once by now? Lawrence was used to being grabbed and chomped on early in these battles, it was odd that it wasn't happening here . . .

    What in the world was going on? The butler lined up for another salvo of shots again, letting the energy vampire have it a second later.

    Arcing away from the butler, NOS-4-A2 gave another beat of its electrified wings, claws digging deeply into a beam as he briefly perched, its lattices crackling in anticipation. Indeed, the energy vampire had been hoping for something far louder than Lawrence's mere ding against the wall, the stouter of the two already getting to his feet. However the robot noticed a slight pause, studious? Perhaps observing... Could he have already seen through the fanged bot's act?

    No, the vampire was simply being too lenient, it had not been relentless enough in its tactics! However, in that span of thought, the butler had already drawn his rifle for another bout of furious shots. The final shot was enough to knock NOS-4-A2 off its perch, one eye squinting into a slit as it pulled away what ice had accumulated on its person. "Why the apprehension, Lawrence?" It sneered, rolling away and already on the wing once more. "Has your processor been jumbled during the fall, Or are you finally realizing your inferiority?" Either option would have been absolutely lovely, but alas if the other bot was as stubborn as he was stout...

    Well, you knew the answer to that one.

    NOS-4-A2 banked towards the butler-bot again, fangs whirring and claws pointed towards Lawrence's damaged paneling. "AAAAAAAAUUUUUUURRRGGHHH!" Came the energy vampire's battle cry, if his claws were not sharp enough to prove the legitimacy of this fight, perhaps his fangs will! The robot's whirring teeth slammed into Lawrence's shoulder, his paneling like tin foil within jaws far stronger than the vampire had lead on.

    Fanged Maw (melee):

    --Within Prixlezub’s mouth are a row of curved, serrated fangs metallic in hue and constitution. There is a set of dagger-like saber fangs that jut out below the demon’s nose, which are used for puncturing enemies and gouging deep wounds. All of his teeth are reinforced with a diamond tough enamel, which makes them very tough to break. The demon prince’s jaws are powerful, their muscular strength rivaling that of an industrial car compactor, exceeding 3,000 psi. He can easily devour small vehicles whole, and stone crumbles like hard candy to his jaw strength.

    Specifics: 3d/2c + 1 duration die

    x1 HIT: all dice hit, normal damage
