The spirit obstructed your attack, rendering it useless.
However, you managed to create a gap between the spirit and Five, successfully protecting her!

It's what matters most right now.

You tell Five to stay as close as possible to your back.


Menacingly, the spirit prepares to do something again.

As a soul-eating sense of danger befalls you, your grip on Five strengthens.
You'll be ready for whatever it does.

The area around you bends unnaturally. Like a canvas, unseen forces begin to paint on it. The spirit's illusory hands must be at work.

Not knowing what's coming forces you to take a defensive position for now.
The biggest danger is in the unknown, when you're unaware what your opponent is capable of. Yet no matter what it may be, you've resolved to protecting Five from it.


Unpleasant thoughts forcefully contaminate your mind.

For a split second, it feels as if those mere thoughts could shatter you like glass.

The canvas morphs.

The air snaps into fog, choking eyes and plugging ears, the ashes disperse, making one deaf and blind. The body feels frozen in its wake, and the mind, shattered and disfigured. Limbs bent and broken, and the skin, slowly unraveling.

The air grows thicker and colder hand in hand with each passing second, as if in a trance of its own, and each second begins to feel like an eternity.

And finally, one is forced and desperate to stay conscious in the face of the apparitions.

And... You're conscious, still.

A sudden, strong rush of breeze drowns out every one of those thoughts.

Aria: What happened?

You slowly open your eyes.
Nothing. That feeling of overwhelming unpleasant danger is suddenly all gone.

Five is unharmed, and so are you!

...Just what happened?

Aria: Look up



Huh? H-how did it...? And what was that?

There was a sudden strong gust of wind, so strong and so focused that it dissipated the spirit's form!

As soon as the spirit was starting something, it ended it. No, it ended before anything could happen, whatever it was. It felt like overwhelming danger had been thwarted by it at the last possible second.

Something saved you just in time.

And, it came from...


Somewhere behind you.

Aria: Turn around


  • ???: You're one hell of an illusionist to struggle like that.

Observing everything it seems the 3 party members will make Nino more powerful in 3 ways, Aria is Diplomacy, Mei’s is stealth and the Blaster Master over here will help his Combat stats go up.

In hindsight I have seen the secondary powers they have and the weaknesses which they have as well Arias weakness seems to be COMBAT, as seen by the fact she is peaceful and also y’know a wanted outlaw or a dude with an arm canon. Mei’s is Diplomacy considering she is a wanted criminal. And R can have stealth considering he hasn’t been seen even bothering to avoid spirits, it’s the only one left and he seems to be while rude amicable enough to not be wanted. At this rate Ninos going to be a master of all 3 categories… Read more »

Aria:Thank the robot but y’know, you should ask the robot a question... How in the world did the robot exactly know that you are a user of the stealth category of special abilities.
