Shuuren retaliates against the yakuza, bringing ultimate destruction upon the compound

"The Business of Revenge - Don’t Mess with the Suit"
Land of Tea
There are a few things you never do in life. You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't tailor in the wind, you don't stab your brothers in the back, and you absolutely never start a war Nagamura Shuuren. The yakuza have ignored such rules for some time, and it seems now it is coming back to haunt them. It's not often that the Tea Daimyo comes into battle himself, but it seems these fools have gained special priviledge to their own demise. In the woods off the road to the compound, the Daimyo has brought Mika and Daoma along with him to use their certain skillsets in this. He hasn't decided yet on if he'll do this in a subtle manner or bring it down in a manner that no one will ever forget, but he is likely prepared for either.
Standing in the top of a tree, Shuuren currently has his eyes closed, using his extreme chakra sense abilities to pick out any enemies in the nearby area as well as the compound. It should be interesting to see how they've prepared for his coming. They might even have a shinobi or two on hand, though that's never turned out well for them. "I'll give exact details on how we'll do this once I've got a good scope of the current guard shift…"

Well, looks like subtlety is out the window. As the flames being to come their way, the Daimyo rather easily steps out of the way through the trees while grabbing a pill from his pocket and swallowing it down. He then reaches into his coat and draws a scroll, which he unrolls to reveal a much larger scroll, which he then tosses into the air to reveal yards and yards of paper that unravel to bring with a puff of smoke what look to be a few hundred Tea soldiers that charge toward the compound with killing intent. What the yakuza would ifnd out about them, however, is that these men don't seem to be mortal. Wounds are basically ignored, even ones that SHOULD be fatal. If one looks close enough, they might note that these men all look exactly the same other than a few minor details of height and build.

Daoma stood and drew er swords in one fluid motion. Se was able to deflect most of everything flying at her really, but an arrow got past her guard and sank deeply into her lower side. The samurai woman merely grunted as she stumbled back a pace. With an opening in the attack she was able to force the arrow through the rest of the way before breaking off the shaft so she could still fight. And fight she did. Swinging her swords in tandem, she moved to cut down as many as possible, displaying a strength out of proportion to her small body.

Mika simply smiles before blinking as the arrows and fire comes down. She leans back, and falls off the branch, flipping over to a graceful landing. She rushes forward, changing over to her more catlike form as she moves between the arrows without looking. The woman has learned to trust her instincts, and lets that take over as she focuses on her targets. As she gets closer, the woman seems to have an aura of flames around her. She slows down, digging her claws into the ground as she raises both arms over her head. An image of a cat hissing seems to appear as the woman focuses on where the greatest group of people are….She growls a bit before launching a hellish looking ball of energy into the group. The catwoman watches as the sphere lands, causing a huge explosion, limited to a 100 foot radius, before the energy starts to bleed away. Its Mika's first time using the Hellcat in actual combat….She smiles evilly as her hands twitch a bit…

There's no escaping all those dead bodies! Sure, maybe a few of them can be avoided, but the front-lines all seem to have trouble, and eventually they go down down down. Oops… Maybe that means Shuuren gets to have more in his collection! … Uh-oh. Daoma is an unexpected surprise. And an unpleasant one at that. She doesn't seem like she'd have much power or much finesse with her weaponry. Underestimated… No? A few of the people end up getting slashed, but others don't. And neither do they fall to this scary cat-girl that's rampaging through the ranks. Sure, it's a bit scary, but the bosses and the undead are scarier! They just… well, they start slashing away at everyone with swords and spears! Not impressive at all.
Also, the building suffers some damage, but it's pretty sturdy. All that the bomb-thingy did was explode a few windows and maybe make a bigger hole by combining some of those windows. Oops!

Shuuren readily avoids the strikes coming his way, stepping around them like one would step over an ant hill and allowing his undead army to handle the rest. His army continues to comb through, strategically taking out man after man, though some would be spared by being knocked unconscious… those who will likely suffer the worst when they are probed for information later, as the undead who strike them bind them up, disarm them, and literally start to drop them in a pile beside the dead. Meanwhile Shuuren senses out for any stronger shinobi that might be waiting in the ranks to try and surprise them…

Daoma met blade with blade as she waded into the sea of yakuza. Each spear or sword aimed for her was batted aside as if it were nothing. She spun, opening her stance a bit more, gaining grounding and power before she slashed again and again. Each strike was meant to be lethal, the throat, the gut, the arteries. Crimson eyes flickered across the field, glancing at Shuuren before she tured to continue fighting.

Mika growls a bit as the Yakuza don't have the decency to stand their ground, and take their bombs politely! The /NERVE!/ The woman dances through the ranks of the undead, and into the Yakuza, sniffing the air, and listening out. She seeks those giving orders, and directing the grunts. She grins, and starts chasing those down, trying to lash out, and leave clawed up corpses behind her as she moves deeper in. Scratching posts!

Well, of course there is a big bad! This big bad suddenly makes a few handseals, then sends chakra through a chain of written seals that are along the ground. This prevents more bodies from coming at his own army, though it also cuts off his allies that weren't behind it. Ooops! Those are the guys that end up being cut down by Daoma and clawed to many little pieces by Mika. So much fun, right? Ahem… Well, no one is going to be attacking anyone soon!
As his soldiers are kept back, Shuuren smirks slightly as now the big bad has revealed himself. "So this is who the yakuza think is going to save them… I'm afraid I've got some bad news…" Rather than trying to push the undead army forward through the wall, he vanishes with a flicker, reappearing flying at the wall with extreme momentum with an invisible blade of chakra around it that goes to pierce straight through the wall to go straight at the man's diaphragm with intent to painfully and direly strike him to begin his descent to death.
Daoma blinked as the shield went up. Suuren caught her attention then as he leapt forward, cutting into the shield as he went. She moved with three powerful steps, following the daimyo in… As he attacked she timed her own strike, feet planted firmly. Both swords were clamped together to act like a double blade, if it struck it would leave a hard to patch set of parallel cuts.
Mika spots Shuuren, and what he's doing. She runs along, and tries to get through the opening. The Cat woman decides that Shuuren's target is too recongizable. She promptly decides to try to fix this through emergency surgery…or is it butchering….Her hands turn into claws, and tries to go to town on the guy's face…slashing at it over a hundred times….

Well, the big bad probably shouldn't have completely relied on that shield. The chakra blade thingy that Shuuren uses completely destroy a section of the powerful seal wall, meaning that Daoma and Mika, if they're close enough, can slip through and leave a bunch of chaos behind them. Or rather… bodies and dead people rounding up to-be-dead folks. The bad news (for the baddies): Shuuren is ultra-mega strong! The good news: He hasn't taken their leader down yet! And suddenly a roaring fire dragon comes crashing down onto Shuuren! As for Daoma and Mika's attacks? Well, they're intercepted by some sword-wielding thugs!

As the fire blazes toward Shuuren, he steps straight through it, seeming to rush straight toward the man, except a second Shuuren then appears behind him and goes to place his fingers on the man's throat. A quick chakra-enhanced motion of his fingers is intended to put the big bad to sleep so he can be bound for later interrogation once the rest of the men have been wiped out. This may seem a kind way of doing things, but, if it's successful, the man will likely wish he were among the dead later…

Daoma eyed the man that had stopped her slash and lifted her foot. Planting her foot on the man's chest she kicked him back a few steps. Then she stepped forward, twisting as she went, to try and slash him with the two blades like she'd just tried o the big bad. I either case she would end up closer to Shuuren with that arrow still stuck in her side. (not that she seemed to notice….)

Mika dodges the strikes with ease, and then there's a burning sensation. She pauses a moment, and looks down as there's three slashes that opened up her shirt…And there's blood there. She tilts her head for a moment, and then looks at the goon who did it, and then back to the slashes…She then tries to pounce on the goon, and well, she slashes at him, but in places that won't kill him. And the woman goes for teh ligaments in the knees and in the armpits. She's going to toy with this one for cutting her! Mean Kitty is mean!

And this is why people should stop facing the Tea Daimyo: he took out the Yakuza's "strongest" with what amounts to be two hits. Granted, this dude underestimated Shuuren… But still! He ends up passing out thanks to the Daimyo, and he's perfect to get tied up and the like! Daoma knocks the man she's facing back with a nice kick, allowing to slice him down the middle. ew… Mika is fast, but she can't get a claw on the man she's facing. Lucky for her, he notices that his boss is down and essentially flees. Well, Shuuren won with little effort!
With the boss in the bag, Shuuren binds him with a plant that extends out of his sleeve then waves to Mika and Daoma to follow. He rather easily hoists the man over his shoulder then leaps on top of a building as his undead army goes to clean out the rest of the yakuza warriors and bring back those who were "spared" to be interrogated later. All in all, this was a greatly successful venture.
