You raise your bow and strike your violin to use a one string Col Legno Cannon and blast Eto out of the ring. Before the blast can hit him Eto fires his arrow into the air! instead of coming back down the arrow stays put in the air, a tether drawn from his arm to the arrow pulls him up and out of the way of your Col Legno.

ETO: I gotta say Vol! I'm glad to meet an imp like you! I feel like even if I do win I won't get nearly as much out of this fight as you did.

Eto puts the bow at the end of his foot and draws another arrow, this one crackling with energy. You look back at your violin, all of the strings are broken but you aren't done fighting yet! Even when it feels like you're going to lose you've gotta keep going. You take your bow and strike your violin one more time. The violin cracks as one more Col Legno surges from it, your bow breaks into splinters as the blast fires towards Eto's arrow. As the two missiles meet the arena fills with bright light and you feel heat envelop your body, you can't see a thing...

You wake up...At least you think you're awake. Your head hurts like hell after you were slammed into the arena like that...why is everything dark and sticky? You try to move but it feels like your swimming through molasses.

Well, the only way to find out what’s going on is to open your eye and take a look.

And here’s a few thoughts to help speed up that process: What do you think happened to your buddy? Is he in a worse condition compared to you? What if something happened to them while you were out?! Quickly get up and check on them!

After some fighting you will your muscles to move .Your arms flail forward out of the dark liquid and grab onto the sides of what feels like a tub. You pull yourself out of the water, the pain in your limbs and back is gone aside from a headache. You cough up some of the liquid from the tub though you never actually felt like you were drowning in it. You scan the room, you're in a room similar to the observers box you went to in between matches. Vol is sitting at a table next to you flipping through your journal.

VOL: Roland! Ya feelin' better?

You feel your eye, it's no better or worse than it was before. You can still barely see out of it.

YOU: W-where-
VOL: Med-room. Ya got knocked out bad! Lotta broken bones. If we didn't have dis healing gunk stuff you'd be a quadriplegic...yeah. But you're fine now!
YOU: Did we-
VOL: Win? Nah we lost. I kinda got my ass blasted out a bounds in the end by dat otha imp Eto. Kinda embarrassin'.

Vol pushes over a cart towards your tub, Your washed clothes and some new bandages are on it.

VOL: Anyway we outta get goin'. You slept through the rest a da fights so the tournaments basically over.

"Ah well. Didn't come here to win anyways. But I got to ask, who did win and did you see any different demons that you haven't seen in this tournament?

Also you doing alright? Hope I didn't give you to much of a scare when I got my ass handed to me."

Guess the only thing to do now is see if flint is still waiting for us then head on home.

“Wait, what about you?! Are you hurt?! Do you need to get in this tub?! Just let me get out and you can take your turn!”

“.....uhhh, could you.....close your eye and look away so I can get dressed?”

Ask what happened during our match? You want to know what happened after you were knocked out! Then ask if we got any kind of prize for getting to the final round? Even though we lost.

Then I guess go talk to Flint to see what he has to say. He said he’d be behind the building outside, right? .....actually, before you go meet Flint, you should probably go check and see if your Skipper is still parked where you left it. You can go meet Flint after you make sure your Skipper hasn’t been stolen.

Damn, that was crazy. I can't even be mad, i didn't actually spected to last this long. But now that i've seen so many pwerful people and so many new demons, i can't help but to feel that i got a lot to improve and learn. I wnat to win a tournament! Yeah, that would be cool.
What about you, did you enjoyed yourself? Did you got hurt bad?
We should pay a visit to that guy Flint, see what he has to say.

Ask if he's okay, because we care about him. Then ask who won, I want to know if Rascal and Gwyn got that fight. Kind of glad we lost, I'd feel pretty bad if we prevented them from meeting in the final round.

Finally, get some bandages and see Flint.

YOU: And are you hurt?
VOL: Not really, I lost by ring out.
YOU: That's right. You lost to Eto and not Naos? What happened to him?
VOL: Oh I blasted his ass outta da ring! Learned somethin' new in dat fight but I kinda...broke my violin doin' it.

Vol holds up the fragments of his violin and the broken in half bow.

VOL: I'd need to make a whole new one when we get home. Dis is too broken to fix. By da way? Dat demon bug arm chick won da whole thing, She got ta fight Rascal and da whole thing was crazy! Kinda sad you didn't get to see it.

You get dressed and leave the room. On the way out you're given the items that were confiscated back to you and thanked for putting on such a good show. Unfortunately you didn't get far enough to get any real prizes you are given a consolation prize of 300 Cards. It's better than nothing. On the way to the exit you and Vol spot Eto leaving the same way, Vol goes to say hi right away.

ETO: Oh hey Vol, Gallows.
VOL: Hey Eto! You and ya buddy really got put out by Rascal didn't ya?
ETO: Yeah, she was really gunning for the finals this year wasn't she?
YOU: So wheres Naos?
ETO: Don't know don't care. I got paid so I never gotta deal with him again. He puts on this whole nice guy shtick then snaps when he loses a few times, what a jack ass.

“Me too.”

After parting ways with Eto, let’s go meet with Flint.

YOU: Wait you two aren't partners?
ETO: Nope. I don't know what he told ya but I'm a hire for people who want to enter these things but don't want to go through the hassle of taming or training a demon. I've never seen that asshole 'til a day ago. Now my jobs done and I'm going home.

The three of you leave the building. Before you part ways Eto says he spends most of his time in the Gas Guzzler Bar in Crud City if you want to meet him again and walks off. You head around the back of the building to meet Flint while Vol voices his reluctance to meet an odd hooded man in an alleyway. You find Flint leaning against the wall of the building chewing on a nail.

FLINT: Y'know part of me really thought you'd get beaten on the first round you were in, so I gotta say ya did better than I expected.

That would explain why they didn't have a good chemistry while fighting. Well better time next time Eto.

>Y'know part of me really thought you'd get beaten on the first round you were in, so I gotta say ya did better than I expected.
Not bad for a noob eh? Although, i am not going to lie, kinda got scared when Vol told me when i could ended up quadriplegic. I have a lot to improve to avoid future disasters like that. I am guessing that you wanted to talk about that with me, no?

YOU: Yeah not bad huh?...Still I do need more help. Apparently I would've been a quadriplegic if not for the medical attention of staff. Again though, I'm just here to study demons.
FLINT: Yup that was pretty bad. I thought you died from that, but enough about you almost being permanently disabled. Right now I want to talk about your training. The spell you call "Caesura" has more use to it than you know, humans have that sort of effect on demon magic. Now as somebody that claims to study demons you must know the difference between a human and a demon right?
YOU: Demons come from the Aether instead of from Earth right?
FLINT: Nope not at all. What you said was true of course but not entirely right. The difference lies in the Aetherial Energy. Demons and humans constantly exude aetherial energy from their bodies, though while the energy released by demons is constantly released in large amounts, human aetherial energy stays trapped in their bodies. Experts know how to tap into this energy and use it to enhance their bodies and create aetherial auras.

He removes the nail from his mouth.

FLINT: Now there's plenty of stuff I can teach you that I'm sure you'd be more than happy to know, but I want you to know it won't be easy especially for someone that's barely used to this sort of stuff. If you agree to this we will begin immediately and go to where I plan to train you, you'll have to follow my instruction as closely as possible if you want the full benefit of my teaching. Do you agree?

He holds his hand out awaiting you to shake it.

A weird dude proposes to train us while we're in a dark, scary and kinda like black alley. Hmmm... Yeah, sure, let's train.

So does that mean that he’s gonna teleport you there or is he gonna tell you to follow him there?

Because if he’s gonna teleport you at the exact moment you touch his hand, then you’d like to go get your Skipper so that it’s not left behind for someone to steal it!

>Do you agree?
Yes.

>He holds his hand out awaiting you to shake it.
As long as he doesn’t teleport you the instant you touch his hand, go ahead and shake his hand.

Seems like a pretty one sided deal right now even if it is favouring us.

is that what Rascal was doing when we fought?

Come now, will you shake a poor sinner's hand?
Well he seems like a trust worthy fellow, let's shake... the training is probably going to suck though seeing how Vol can't heal you since his violin is busted at the moment.

What is the catch?
I have been warned and taught that is dangerous to deal with pagans too much. Besides,we just met, and you are ofering to teach me the arts of pagan magic. What do you want from me, what do you see in me that make you decide that you would like to help an stranger.
I just want to know where I'm standing before I shake Flint's hand. From my point of view, I'm the only one who loses, whether or not i accept your deal

YOU: So...what do you gain from this?
FLINT: I'd say it's one part someone who's going to go out studying demons needs to know more than just a weak spell to survive and another part I want something to do really. If you have a problem you can always not accept it, nobodies twisting your arm here.
YOU: Hmm. Weird hooded man offers me odd secrets in the back alley behind an underground demon fighting tournament. Well I'd have to have common sense and sanity not to accept that!

You shake his hand.

FLINT: Well smart ass hop on whatever ride you took to get here and follow me. We got some work to do.

You follow Flint back to the front of the building and mount your Skipper. The two off you ride out of Crud City.
