    Korra chuckled and nodded at Sokka eagerly. "I'm glad you're alright too!" A large head suddenly bumped her own and Korra turned slightly to stroke Naga's muzzle. "And you too, of course! Is that the worst this place has?" She couldn't help but boast, even after being beaten up by those obstacles, she still felt great! Better than great, in fact! Its like this place was barely trying to give them a challenge.

    Pride goes before the fall though, as before Sokka could answer properly, they heard a rather...strange roar. Korra glanced around the new cave area, and beside her Naga's fur began to stand straight up as she growled lowly and deeply. "Its okay, Naga..." Actually, maybe it wasn't SO okay since the creature finally revealed itself. And after all this time on the breach, here was an animal Korra could identify right away! Though she'd prefer not to. "A Platypus Bear!" She yelled out in her deeper voice, ironically at the same time as Sokka and further showing how different their new voices were. She glanced at Sokka for a moment, noting that he was grabbing for his sword. Taking his lead, Korra drew it a tendril of water and got it ready. The Platypus Bear swiped at Sokka, who avoided it swiftly. Naga tensed up and looked ready to tackle her Platypus cousin but Korra managed to get her to back down with just her voice. "Stay back Naga, we've got this!" She didn't want her to get hurt like last time...

    While the Platypus Bear was focused on Sokka, she struck out with the tendril of water, giving it a few good whips on the back. She didn't want to hurt it too much, or kill it, but the feeling was not reciprocated by this thing.

    Water Tribe Waterskin

    --At some point during Korra's water-bending training, she presumably got a waterskin, or at least was advised to get a waterskin. As an Native Waterbender, she would know that it is important to try and keep water on your person, because water is not always easily accessible everywhere you go. As such, its become a staple for Water Tribe Waterbenders to carry a waterskin with them, as Katara did before Korra. A Waterbender can 'bend' the water out of the waterskin and use it as needed. Obviously the waterskin needs water inside of it in order for it to complete its purpose.

    The platypus bear growled in aggravation as its mighty swipe missed the female warrior in front of him, her swift sidestep not only helping her to dodge it, but soon carrying her out of his line of sight. She couldn't have gone that far, though… it wasn't a small chamber, but it was still sealed shut. The platypus bear soon roared in pain though as he found not one but two sharp strikes against his side, courtesy of the warrior's sword.

    Rounding towards the warrior as the male waterbender struck thrice at his back, the platypus bear didn't even flinch at the aquatic attack. Perhaps the water was weaker on contact, or maybe his fur was just that thick… either way, he had not really felt anything, and was far more interested in returning the favor to the one that had injured him.

    Letting out another vicious roar, the platypus bear flipped up its tail, turned around, and swung its left paw at the warrior again. Hopefully he'd have better luck this time!

    Sokka grinned at the exchange between Naga and Korra, right before laughing a little more at her prideful remarks on this place. Admittedly, he didn't think that that last chamber would be the worst this dungeon had to throw at them, but it was at least encouraging the they had got beat up a bit in there and had still managed to emerge relatively unscathed. Still, before he could say anything in response, the strange, familiar roar echoed through the cavern, alerting them to just what their next challenge was.

    Although he was focused on their new opponent, Sokka could not help but widen his eyes a bit at further catching the difference between his and Korra's current voices. He was getting a little more used to seeing her in that form, but the voice… it still felt familiar even if it didn't quite sound it. At least she was still okay, though… new forms or not, they could still take this beast, and they could still make their way through this cave.

    Sokka allowed himself the slightest of smirks as he felt his blade connect right with the platypus bear's side, although Korra's own attack did not appear to be quite as successful. The platypus bear shrugged off the water whip, right before refocusing its attention on Sokka. The warrior locked eyes with the beast as he tried to gauge its next movements, and as soon as he saw its tail raise, he was set.

    Deftly dodging the left paw as it swung down towards him, Sokka swung his sword three more times, this time aiming at the platypus bear's chest. "HA!!" These animals had notoriously thick skin, so even if he didn't damage it too much, hopefully he could at least keep their early advantage in this encounter.

    Korra winced as her attack barely managed to draw a flinch. Tough critter, those Platypus Bears...she'd never really fought any before! At least Sokka's sword had hurt the thing, though it also seemed to make it angry since it continued to focus its attacks on Sokka rather than Korra. Korra's blue eyes watched with some degree of worry as the Platypus Bear swung its paw down upon Sokka once more, and once more, Sokka dodged it easily. "Whoo!" she cheered with a grin. Now that the critter was focusing on Sokka, maybe she could get in some good attacks while it was distracted. Sokka swung his sword again, and most of the blows seemed to hit! Though from her position behind the Platypus Bear, she couldn't really see for sure.

    She straightened up her tendril of water, tightening it in her grasp before she swung it around to swipe right at the nape of the creature's back. "Down boy! Down!" She called out as she swiped at it again. The third strike pulled back, and landed on the Platypus Bear's tail. The tail and that part of the back seemed like the fur was less thick and tough, so hopefully she managed to do a good bit of damage this time...Sokka may have been doing a good job of dodging, but that could change very easily.

    Again his mighty swipe missed! This human female was even faster than the platypus bear had thought she was, and he soon let out another loud growl in frustration. Around his target's dodge though, once again, she saw fit to retaliate, but this time, she came at him head on.

    "SQWOAARRR!" Once more, two sword slashes struck true against the platypus bear, this time connecting squarely across his chest. Those definitely left some serious damage, enough to make the beast reel back in pain. That reflexive action worked to his favor as he narrowly avoided the third sword strike, but just as soon as the blade whipped against the fur on his chest, he found the base of his neck stinging from another water-based attack. "SKGRRR!" The first strike to his back and one to his tail were easy to shake off, but the one that struck his nape stung fiercely.

    Still, with as sharp as that blow was, he was still far more focused on the female warrior that had attacked him from the front. She was still close despite his own dodge though, so hopefully, the third time would be the charm for returning damage in kind. Pushing forward into a short charge, the platypus bear aimed his bill at the female's right arm, set to chomp down on it with its sharp maw.

    Sokka could tell that his blade impacted right against the platypus bear's chest, and his attack cry soon shifted to a satisfied grin. His first two sword slashes had struck true, and whilst he had not felled the beast yet, he could tell that he'd got some good damage in that round. That grin started to fade as he realized – seemingly in slow motion – that his third strike had not connected. The platypus bear had flinched from his first two attacks, its instinctive reaction just barely managing to save it from further injury.

    Still, that was definitely some progress, as was Korra's follow-up attack. One of the two water whips that caught the platypus bear by the neck was enough to get it to growl angrily, and Sokka in turn tightened his grip on his space sword as he steadied his stance. "That's it, Korra! We've got this!"

    Whilst they had both got in good hits that round, the beast was still far more focused on him, and given his own fighting style, Sokka was just fine with that. His blue eyes widened slightly as he saw the platypus bear draw back, that tell from his opponent instantly having him anticipate a charge attack. Hissing a bit through his teeth as he inhaled quickly, Sokka jumped backwards and strafed to the side, just in time to narrowly avoid what could have been a devastating bite to his right arm. "Aah!" Thankfully though, the beast had missed, and he himself was set for another good attack.

    Readying his space sword again, Sokka swung down hard with it, aiming for the base of the platypus bear's neck in hopes of incapacitating him. The beast wasn't about to let up, and given the way they were stuck here, neither could they.

    Between Sokka's sword strikes and a more lucky placement of her water whip this time around, the two of them were doing a good job of doing some damage to this big ole thing! ...Well, that and also really getting it angry. But she'd learned with Naga, sometimes you have to show your own dominance to make a creature back down. They didn't necessarily have to kill this thing after all, if they managed to scare it or intimidate it enough it ought to back away and leave them alone. "Ha ha! Yeah we do!" The water tribe teenager boasted to Sokka, both fists curled up tightly. This thing hadn't even touched either of them!

    In fact, it was still really focused on Sokka. It charged towards him, bill aimed for an arm, a blow that could really hurt him. "Sokka!" Thankfully, he had again dodged the attack. She would have made a joke that maybe his new female body had made him really good at dodging, but she decided to save that for later. You know, when they weren't in danger. Sokka struck at the neck of it with his sword, and Korra was not far behind him. From behind, the tendril of water whipped back again before it struck out at the nape of the neck again and again. That seemed to have done a good job of hurting it last time. But she was hardly done with it.

    "Back up Sokka!" It was her only warning before she again motioned forward with her arms and hands. The tendril wrapped around one of the thing's feet, and as soon as she felt it had a good grip, she jerked her arms inward, attempting to pull at its leg and knock it down to the ground. "Hngh...!"

    The platypus bear's quick charge forward resulted in a very near miss. That female warrior had just barely evaded his bite, and no sooner had she dashed just out of his field of vision than did he find her sword meeting him again… this time against the base of his neck. "SQWOARR!"

    As the beast let out a loud roar from the trio of sharp sword slashes, he soon clamped his eyes shut and tried to block out the pain. Sweet spirits that had hurt… at least the blows hadn't gone too deep despite the damage they had dealt. Even with as sharp as the whipping tendril of water that met the same spot was, the liquid was cool enough to provide some semblance of relief… or at least it was for the first strike. The second one landed squarely on the fresh injury that the female had caused him, and the platypus bear let out a rumbling growl.

    Slowly pulling himself back up to his full height, the platypus bear could feel the toll that these critical hits were taking on him. Blinking and shaking his head a bit, he refocused his sights on the female warrior from where she had jumped to the side and back a little ways. "Rrrrrr…" Biting might not have worked as well last time, but hopefully another good slash of his paw would finally connect with her. Before he could do more than start to raise his left paw, he perked up at feeling one of the water whips wrap around his feet. Oh no, he was not about to fall prey to such a trap!

    "SQWOAR!" As the male waterbender pulled the water backwards, the platypus bear stood his ground, determined to keep his footing. The strength behind the water was there, but in this exchange, the beast emerged victorious, and just in time to quickly swing his right paw at the female warrior.
