The group now decided to head to Greenland and when they got there, they saw a vast, featureless landscape. All they could see was snow all the way to the horizon. Flying above the snow were seven figures; five more reptilian soldiers (several of which seemed very un-happy to be where they were one of whom was vomiting), and two others. One of the other figures looked very similar to the rest of the soldiers except that he was slightly larger and his clothes were a little different, the other was surmised by the group to be female and also appeared to have no eyes. High above, Lord Caius and his lieutenants observed. Searra hides and moves closer to the captains and their soldiers, she noticed that Sem seemed to be looking right at her, which disturbed her a little. A few moments passed without either side making a move. Searra came out of hiding and addressed Lord Caius “Are they going to fight us?” “They have no need to fight you; They already have the Dragonball. However, if you want it, you will have to defeat them“ said Lord Caius “but if something doesn’t happen soon, Mauro and Sem may start getting impatient.“ “Okay, well, what are their names?” asked Searra “I thought you might want to know that.“ said Lord Caius “He is Kevork and she is Tone“ “Ah, thank you” said Searra.
Searra hid again and Yumi moved into a position to attack all of the soldiers and the captains at once with her wide blast; most of them evaded the attack but two of the soldiers were felled. Jex tried to attack Kevork but missed. Kevork then reached out and touched Jex who felt some of his power draining away. Tone moved closer to the group and several of them began to feel ill, she then emitted a piercing scream, one of her soldiers fell unconscious, Kalding and Yumi were both injured by the sound waves. Kevork pointed his finger toward the bulk of the group and a small ball of energy appeared at the tip and then shot forward in the direction he was pointing, when it got close to them it exploded with great force! Kalding, Fewbert Harnsworth and Yumi were enveloped in the blast, Fewbert Harnsworth and Yumi suffered some injuries. Searra notice that Fewbert Harnsworth hadn’t moved much since they arrived and after a moment his external speakers activated with the sound of him snoring. Searra flew straight at Fewbert Harnsworth, bounced off his armor and, in passing, tried to bite Kevork but was unable to sink her teeth in. “Wha?...” said Fewbert Harnsworth “What happened??”. Another powerful sound wave from Tone was unleashed but no one suffered any serious harm from it. Jex realized that he was unable to use his energy blast and speculated that Kevork had stolen it from him so he struck at Kevork and landed a mighty blow! The attacks from the soldiers were only distractions rather than harmful but they did make the fight more complicated. Another large explosion came from Kevork but it failed to have any serious effect. Jex then turned his attention to Tone who retaliated by focusing her sonic attacks specifically on him. After several failed attacks, Jex finally was able to deal a crippling blow to Tone and she fell to the ground. With one major threat taken care of, Fewbert Harnsworth grabbed Kevork and restrained him. Seeing his commander in peril, one of the soldiers came to his aid and pulled Fewbert Harnsworth off of him with surprising ease! Kevork then flew away to get a good position and unleashed another explosion but they seemed to be getting less powerful. It was still powerful enough to remove Yumi from the fight, however and she fell to the ground as well. Fewbert Harnsworth broke free of the soldiers grip with the help of Searra’s teeth and attempted to restrain Kevork again, while the others took care of the remaining soldier. With the only thing able to keep Fewbert Harnsworth from maintaining his grip on the captain on the ground, unconscious, the group was finally able to subdue Kevork.
Lord Caius descended with Mauro and Sem and removed Kevork from Fewbert Harnsworth’s grip. “Well done“ said Lord Caius as he handed the Dragonball Kevork was carrying to Searra. “Why are you doing this?” asked Searra “Doing what?“ asked Lord Caius “Do you enjoy watching your soldiers getting beat up?” “I am just curious to see exactly how powerful you are… Also, why is it that you insist on knowing the names of my captains?“ asked Lord Caius “Well” answered Searra “I think it is rude to fight someone without knowing their name” “Fair enough,“ said Lord Caius “until next time…“ Lord Caius flew off with Kevork in hand, Mauro retrieved Tone and Sem gathered up the remaining soldiers and followed Lord Caius. The group returned to their island to recover.
After returning home to recover from the last fight, Fewbert Harnsworth secretly decided that he was not going to continue fighting much longer in order to pursue a more intellectual venture and provide the group with a little less direct support in battle. To this end, he made another hand-held Dragonball tracker and gave it to Kalding when he made the announcement of his impending retirement from the battlefield. Then they prepared to head back to China to face Shel once more. Yumi still hadn’t fully recovered and decided to remain home. When they arrived at the location of their previous retreat they saw Shel and seven of his soldiers along with Lord Caius, Mauro, Sem and one other reptilian that was assumed to be another captain. This creature was different from the others they have faced before because his skin was brown, as opposed to the blues and greens that every other reptilian has been so far. He also had larger scales that came to points and seemed to be rather sharp along their edges. Jex suddenly decided that Sem rubbed him the wrong way and declared to himself that Sem was his nemesis. When he saw the group, Lord Caius spoke; “Ah! There you are! Come, come! I wish to talk!“ he said with a grin. Searra reluctantly approached. “All of you, come! Please!“ said Lord Caius, and the rest approached as well. “Your last comment to me was intriguing“ said Lord Caius to Searra “You say that you find it rude to fight someone who’s name you do not know…“ “Yes” said Searra “However“ said Lord Caius “we do not know your names. I think formal introductions are in order; I am Lord Caius this is my first lieutenant, Mauro, and my second, Sem. And you are?“ asked Lord Caius “I am Searra this is Flute and Kalding” said Searra “I am Jex” said Jex ”…and he is Fewbert” said Searra “You seem to be missing one“ said Lord Caius “Yes, Yumi stayed home” said Searra. “Hmmm, well, now that that is out of the way. You have met Shel and this is…“ “I am Briar” Interrupted the brown reptilian as all the scales on his body stood up like thousands of knives. “Haha! Yes, Briar. Apart from Mauro and Sem he is among my three strongest fighters. Good luck, you will need it!“ said Lord Caius as he and his lieutenants rose high above the battlefield. Fewbert Harnsworth searched for the Dragonball which he discovered was in Shel’s possession while Searra hid.
Shel’s soldiers, again, wasted no time and attacked the group but not before Searra bit one of them. She disabled him but was not able to take his life force. Jex figured that a frontal assault on Sem right now would be suicide and so decided that he would imagine that his current opponents were Sem to draw upon an inner strength to defeat them. Jex attacked Briar, his attack had no effect on the captain but he cut himself on Briar’s scales! In retaliation, Briar swung his fist at Jex but missed. It seemed that any physical contact with Briar would result in injury to the attacker as well! Shel then leapt into the air, swung his swords at Flute and landed several powerful blows! As the battle progressed, Flute was getting badly beaten, Fewbert Harnsworth was beginning to experience some serious malfunctions in his suit and Kalding’s regenerative abilities were having a hard time keeping up with the punishment. Searra remained hidden most of the time and didn’t suffer any serious attacks. Fewbert Harnsworth then surprised his companions by tearing one of the soldiers in two! Lord Caius and his battle hardened lieutenants seemed fairly unphased by this. After a failed attempt to attack Shel, Jex was grabbed by one of the soldiers and pulled away from the group and before anyone could react, was dragged straight up into the air at tremendous speed! Shel was finally felled by a combined mental attack from Flute and Kalding. Fewbert Harnsworth took the time to retrieve the Dragonball from Shel. Flute then tried to give chase to the soldier dragging Jex ever higher into the sky. When she could clearly see them, Flute attacked the soldier’s mind, who released Jex and fell limply to the ground far below. With only Briar and two soldiers left Flute and Kalding turned their mental attacks on the spiny menace and, though he was strong willed, he eventually fell.
“That’s enough“ said Lord Caius. The fighting stopped and the remaining soldiers flew up to Lord Caius’ side. “He was one of your strongest fighters?” asked Searra. “Well, you seemed to have found the best way to fight him, congratulations. I will be sending for my dragonballs shortly, farewell!“ said Lord Caius as he collected Briar, Mauro carried away Shel and Sem gathered the soldiers. The three flew away while Searra vainly argued that they would not give him the dragonballs.
Shortly after returning home, everyone tried to relax. Fewbert Harnsworth relaxed in the only way he knew how; By working feverishly on a new invention in his lab. Several hours passed without incident. Suddenly, Flute and Searra heard the sound of a vessel approaching. Searra went to the window to investigate, she saw a small transport vehicle land on the island, a few hundred yards from the house. Moments later a knock came at the door. Everyone, not sure what to do, waited for someone to act. Another knock came and Flute decided to answer… by knocking back. This was answered by another knock. Searra opened the window and stuck her head out. She saw a frail-looking reptilian holding a small device, he was clearly not a soldier and seemed terrified to be where he was. “Hello? What do you want?” asked Searra. The creature looked over at Searra with a start “M…my Lord w…wanted me to d…deliver a message to you…” he said as he held up the device “are you scared of that thing or me?” asked Searra. The creature timidly pointed at her. “Me?” asked Searra, then she went to the door and opened it. The small creature backed away a little and held up the device again. Searra took the device and patted the creature on the head, who shrunk away from her hand and ran back to his transport. The vessel lifted off and flew away. The device that Searra now held was simple, it had a screen like the Dragonball tracker along with a few buttons and a switch. When the switch was toggled, the device was activated. It displayed a static image of new Zealand, with a small yellow blip over the North-east portion of the land mass and after a moment, displayed the text ‘Don’t forget my Dragonballs’.
After a short discussion, the group flew off to New Zealand. Fewbert Harnsworth placed the Dragonballs in a secret compartment in his suit and then deactivated the suit to hide their energy signature. Lord Caius was waiting for the group with his lieutenants. When he saw them, he pressed a button on his scouter. “I told you to bring the Dragonballs“ said Lord Caius “We did” said Searra “they’re just hidden. Before we give them to you, we just want to know why you want them…” “That is my own business“ said Lord Caius. “Well, you’re not giving us much incentive to give them to you… if it were for a good cause, such as to save a planet from destruction or the good of your people…” “It is most definitely for the good of my people“ interrupted Lord Caius “The power that the Dragonballs can grant me will benefit my people greatly“ “What kind of power?” asked Searra “Immortality!“ said Lord Caius “Why would you want to live forever?” asked Flute “If I live forever, I can rule forever!“ said Lord Caius “So, I don’t think that’s a good enough reason for us to give them to you…” said Searra. “So be it! Korshid, Have your fun!“ said Lord Caius and flew off with Mauro and Sem.
Suddenly, ten identical creatures appeared in the air near the group and one of them blasted Searra. Jex swung at the one who attacked Searra but his fist passed through the creature, who then vanished. A mental attack from Flute caused another to vanish. Searra tried to bite one but nearly bit her tongue as the creature dissipated. Another blast from a different creature, this time, struck Flute. Fewbert Harnsworth tried to find which one of these creatures was real with his suit’s sensors but saw no energy signatures from any of the creatures. He did sense a faint power near the ground but was unable to get a good lock on it. After several more attacks from the group, only two of the creatures remained. It was deduced that one of them must be the real one but before another assault could be launched the two came together and split into ten again! Jex tried to blast one of them, but the creature reacted with a blast of his own! A surge of power was created between the two combatants but it seemed like Jex was loosing the struggle! Searra got an idea and decided to simply fly through as many of the creatures as she could until she hit something solid. She started with the one fighting Jex but the moment she made contact with him he vanished and his attack on Jex ended. Jex’s blast, now facing no resistance, struck Searra and slowed her down. Kalding decided to try Searra’s tactic and the rest of the creatures vanished. All ten of them immediately reappeared and were dissipated again by the group. Fewbert Harnsworth was still trying to find the source of this menace. Korshid realized that her Illusions were no longer effective and the group was then assailed by energy blasts seeming to originate from nowhere! Fewbert Harnsworth finally pinpointed the power source and informed the group. Searra spotted the creature hiding in a tree. When attacked, she ran off and tried to hide again. Searra was then surrounded with darkness. Another assault came from nowhere at the group. Korshid was found again with the combined efforts of Searra and Fewbert Harnsworth and she, again, tried to run and hide. Searra saw where she went this time and made sure the group could find her again. Fewbert Harnsworth blindly grabbed at where Searra told him the creature was and managed to get ahold of her. In another surprising act, Fewbert Harnsworth ripped off Korshid’s head! Searra began yelling at him “Why did you do that? That might make Lord Caius mad!!” Moments later Lord Caius came in at full speed and punched Fewbert Harnsworth who fell to the ground, sparks flying from the mangled wreckage of his suit! Mauro and Sem followed shortly after. “Soldiers are acceptable losses!“ shouted Lord Caius as Searra tried to drag Fewbert Harnsworth to safety. “But you just killed one of my best captains!! Deliver the dragonballs to me in two days or your lives and your planet are forfeit!!“ Lord Caius, Mauro and Sem flew off again.
Fewbert Harnsworth’s retirement from battle was sealed, the damage to his suit after a single attack from Lord Caius was irreparable. when they got back to the island, he gave two weapons to the group, both labeled “D. Ray” and retired to his lab.
A few more hours passed at home, during which Searra practiced duplicating the ability to control space that Issmat displayed. Then another vessel was heard approaching and a knock was heard at the door once again. Another device was handed to Searra and the messenger ran off again after she patted him on the head. As the vessel took off, Searra and Fewbert Harnsworth noted that it did not appear to be a space-faring vessel. This time, the location indicated on the device was in central America. Kalding and Yumi decided to stay home to tend to Fewbert Harnsworth, if he needed anything. Searra gathered up the Dragonballs and placed them in a small sack and left with Jex and Flute. Before arrival, Searra and Flute sensed five power levels, three were clearly Lord Caius and his lieutenants, another was only slightly lower than the other two and the last seemed to be fairly low. The three suppressed their powers to disguise their approach. When they got to the indicated location, Lord Caius, Mauro and Sem were hovering above the trees and Ramesh was vainly trying to hide behind a hill, he was now wearing a helmet and looked very angry! The fifth power source was, as yet, not to be seen. “I see you have brought the Dragonballs this time…“ said Lord Caius “Yes we did” said Searra “No matter.“ said Lord Caius “I have decided that you are pests. Pests deserve only to be exterminated!“ “But we don’t want to be exterminated” said Searra “Gresham! Kill them!!“ said Lord Caius as a small reptilian creature climbed onto his shoulder, leaped toward the group and disappeared! At that moment, a bright flash was seen in the sky. What looked like a meteor at first came down straight toward where the battle was about to begin! and just a few hundred yards from the ground paused and hovered in mid-air. It could now be seen as a small, round vessel. It touched down nearby and, as it opened, revealed a female Sayian! As she climbed out, Lord Caius said “I was hoping to not have to deal with you, this time…“ “Well, life’s a bitch and so am I” she said. “Oh, well, I guess I’ll kill two birds with one stone on this one. Kill them all, Gresham!“ Searra hid and this time used her spatial control to split into two.
Ramesh took a few strides forward and swung his hand at this new foe. He merely grazed her, however, and most of the impact of the attack was lost. Gresham then appeared, only for an instant, behind Searra struck at her and vanished again. The group was forced to split their attention between dealing with the colossal Ramesh and looking for the elusive Gresham! Every few moments, Gresham would appear behind someone else, strike at them and disappear before anyone could react. All the while, Ramesh was swinging his massive fists at one of them or another, trying to grab and squeeze them to death! Ramesh was mostly a nuisance but they knew that he could be quite dangerous if he could get his hands on you! It was obvious that Gresham could be very deadly if not dealt with soon. Blow after blow was dealt, with neither side seeming to gain the upper hand. Then, suddenly, Ramesh grabbed Flute out of the air and held her tight! a moment later, he also got ahold of the newcomer! Flute attempted to attack his mind but his helmet seemed to make him very resistant to mental attacks! No one was able to spot Gresham for more than a few seconds before he disappeared, struck someone and was gone again. Attention was turned toward Ramesh to free his captives. After a few decisive blows, Ramesh fell to the ground (nearly onto Searra but thanks to her new ability to manipulate space, she barely avoided becoming crushed under Ramesh’s gigantic arm!). Now that they could concentrate entirely on locating Gresham, everyone began the search. Gresham continued his assault on the group dealing a severe blow to Searra but eventually chose a poor place to hide after one of his attacks and was found by Jex who punched and grappled him. The attack stunned Gresham and he was unable to teleport away. He clearly relied on his stealth and teleportation ability to avoid getting hit, as it took little effort to subdue him once everyone could see him. The group had little time to celebrate. As soon as Gresham fell unconscious Lord Caius said “Sem, get them!“ Searra knew she could not face Sem with her current injuries and tried to draw upon her inner strength to ease her pain!
|Back on the island, Fewbert Harnsworth, Kalding, Yumi and Orrin were watching the progress of the battle on a device Fewbert Harnsworth quickly threw together. They weren’t able to see images of the battle but it did show the activity of powers in the area. “This isn’t good!” said Kalding “We have no idea who that new fighter is… it just appeared out of nowhere!” “We need to help them! But someone who can fight should stay here in case they send any soldiers after us!” said Yumi. “I think it’s about time to reveal one of my big projects… He isn’t quite ready, in fact he’s still quite independent and stubborn but I don’t think it can wait any longer.” said Fewbert Harnsworth. “HE?” said both Kalding and Yumi. “Yes, I’ve been doing some genetic experiments lately and I’m onto something big!” said Fewbert Harnsworth as he slowly shuffled toward his lab. Kalding and Yumi followed him as he pulled a large red satin sheet off of a vat filled with a green liquid. Floating in the liquid was a boy who appeared to be in his late teens with long white hair, ears that looked like that of a dog and claws instead of fingernails. “I’ve been working on combining the traits of certain animals and… other… beings…” said Fewbert Harnsworth as Kalding interrupted “What ‘Other beings’?” “Uh-Wha? What? Where am I? Who are you people? Anyway, go grab those red robes over there!” said Fewbert Harnsworth as he pressed a few buttons and flicked some switches on the console below the vat. Kalding glared at Fewbert Harnsworth, went to get the robes and brought them back. The liquid drained from the vat and the glass cylinder lifted. Kalding placed the robes over the boy. “It might take a while for him to wake up…” said Fewbert Harnsworth as he grabbed a sword from a shelf “This is another thing I’ve been working on. I made it for him!” “Ungh…” groaned the boy “Old man! If you do that to me one more time… Who are they? ” asked the boy. “Never mind that! We need you for something! There are some guys we need you to take care of… Put on your clothes and take your sword!” said Fewbert Harnsworth. “We’ll need to get him there as fast as possible so, Yumi, you’ll need to carry him! Kalding can stay here to protect me…” “and Orrin and the house…” said Kalding “I suppose…” said Fewbert Harnsworth “Can’t he fly?” asked Yumi. “Not exactly… I said he wasn’t ready… Anyway, we mustn’t waste any more time! They need help now! Yumi you should get going!” said Fewbert Harnsworth. Yumi picked up the boy, who yelped at being suddenly hauled into the air and flew east toward Central America as fast as she could. “So, what kinds of ‘Other beings’ were you experimenting with?!” asked Kalding “Wha? Oh! Just demons, mostly…” said Fewbert Harnsworth as he waved to Yumi “oh… …WHAT?!?” exclaimed Kalding
“Wait!“ said Lord Caius to Sem as his scouter indicated that two more power sources were coming in fast. “It seems we have a couple of more guests coming. We will wait until they arrive.“ said Lord Caius with a smirk. During this short reprieve the newcomer introduced herself to the group as Trism, a bounty hunter who has been trying to kill Lord Caius (for as-yet unexplained reasons) for quite some time. It was only a few more moments before Yumi could be seen carrying Isamaru; Fewbert Harnsworth’s genetic experiment. The group was confused as to who this boy was but relieved to see help arrive. “Kill that one first“ said Lord Caius, pointing to Yumi. Sem flew straight for Yumi and with one punch, she fell to the ground, not moving. Released from her grip, Isamaru fell, slowly, to the ground. Searra wanted to check on her friend to see if she survived the attack but Sem was already on the offensive!
Jex immediately charged Sem, to little effect, while Searra hid. After hitting the ground, Isamaru leaped into the air toward Sem and slashed at him with his claws but Sem’s thick skin and hard scales deflected the attack harmlessly. With Sem distracted, Searra checked on Yumi who was alive but only barely. Flute and Trism attempted to attack Sem together but their efforts were also fruitless. It was clear to everyone that Sem was in another class altogether from the soldiers and captains that they had faced up to this point. Sem struck at Jex and grasped him tightly around the throat. Searra decided that the best way to help Yumi was to defeat Sem and get her home so she split and joined the fray. After much effort, Jex was released from Sem’s grip. Isamaru realized that his claws seemed to be having no effect on Sem and so he drew his sword, which seemed impossibly large for it’s scabbard to contain. Even Flute’s mental attacks seemed to have little or no effect on Sem and attacks that did any sort of damage at all, it seemed that Sem recovered from quite quickly. Every time Sem attacked someone he wrapped his arms around them and squeezed so tightly that they began to suffocate. The group spent so much time merely releasing their allies from the fiend’s grip that it was difficult to harm him. Searra attempted, several times, to bite Sem and drain his life force but her teeth were having the same problem as Isamaru’s claws. The group then decided to to try turning Sem’s tactics against him and everyone tried to aid Jex in grappling him. This turned out to be a mistake, as when Sem felt control of the battle slipping away from him he flew into a berserk rage and he roared in defiance! This terrifying sound sent Searra fleeing and demoralized several more of the group. Sem’s bolstered strength allowed him to throw his captors aside with little effort and renew his assault!
Isamaru struck at Sem with his huge sword, which seemed to injure him. Seeing this, the others attempted another assault, Sem seemed to ignore many of the attacks and return some powerful attacks of his own. Eventually, after regaining her wits and returning to the battle, Searra managed to find a soft spot in Sem’s neck and sink her teeth in! Some of the rage seemed to leave Sem’s eyes and he seemed to weaken slightly. Seeing this, a final attack was launched and Sem fell to the ground! “So, do you want us to kill him?” Searra asked Lord Caius “I want him to stop toying with you! Get up, Sem!!“ said Lord Caius as Sem groggily stood up and shook his head. “Mauro, get the Dragonballs!“ said Lord Caius. Searra vainly attempted to protect the sack on her belt that contained the Dragonballs but by the time her hand reached the spot they had been hanging Mauro had already streaked past her, grabbing the sack as he passed and was on the horizon before anyone could react! Lord Caius and Sem flew off in two different directions and were, also, soon gone!
After it was clear that Lord Caius, Mauro and Sem had escaped with the Dragonballs, attention was turned to Yumi. Now that she could concentrate without keeping one eye out for an attack from a muscle-bound Reptilian, Searra examined her unconscious friend and discovered that if she did not receive medical attention soon, she would most likely die! It was decided to bring her back to the island for Fewbert Harnsworth to heal.
When they got her home, she was brought to Fewbert Harnsworth who put her into the same vat that Isamaru was in “The fluid in this vat is made up of special proteins that will help heal her” he said. While Yumi healed, the rest of the group tried to figure out their next move. Even with all of the technology they had at their disposal, they could not locate where Mauro had gone with the Dragonballs…
After snatching the Dragonballs from Searra, Mauro took an indirect path back to Lord Caius’ ship. Despite his meanderings to lead anyone following him off course, he still made it back well before Lord Caius or Sem. When he arrived, Mauro immediately entered the ship so that it’s shields would block anyone from detecting the Dragonballs. “Go fetch the Dragonball” Mauro ordered one of the workers as he entered “Lord Caius will be back soon!” The worker ran off to get the last Dragonball.
Lord Caius and Sem entered the ship just as the worker was handing the Dragonball to Mauro. “Go to the infermary and see to your wounds, Sem“ said Lord Caius. Sem saluted and did as ordered. “My Lord! We have succeeded, the Dragonballs are yours!” said Mauro as he handed the sack and the last Dragonball to Lord Caius. “Yes, and now my power will become immeasurable!“ said Lord Caius as he overturned the contents of the sack into his hand to join the other Dragonball. He placed them on the floor, arranged them in a line and stood back with anticipation! After a moment of awkward silence Lord Caius scowled slightly and looked toward Mauro. Mauro shrugged. “Perhaps try a different arrangement, sir?” Lord Caius scowled back at the Dragonballs then back at Mauro and then walked over and arranged them in a circle. Again, nothing happened. “Get the head of my research team!“ shouted Lord Caius. Moments later, a reptilian scientist walked up to Lord Caius “You got them?? All of them!?” he said. “Yes, and they are not working!“ growled Lord Caius “Well, sir, my research shows that all you have to do is gather the Dragonballs in close proximity and the Eternal Dragon will appear!” said the scientist. Lord Caius pushes the spheres closer together. “Well, they can’t get much closer than that!“ said Lord Caius “Maybe the ship’s shields are preventing it from happening, sir.” said the scientist, nervously. Lord Caius let out an exasperated sigh, looked around the ship’s main chamber and said “I suppose summoning the dragon in here wasn’t a great idea, anyway.“ He gathered up the Dragonballs and walked outside. Mauro and the chief scientist followed. Lord Caius took a few steps from the ship, tossed the Dragonballs on the ground and stood back once again. Nothing happened. Lord Caius glared at the scientist who was anxiously trying to think of something to say. Lord Caius roared in anger! “Stay here and notify me if anything happens, Mauro!!“ said Lord Caius “Yes, my Lord!” said Mauro. Lord Caius leaped into the air and flew at top speed to the north toward the small island that Searra, Flute, Jex, Kalding, Fewbert Harnsworth, Yumi and now Trism reside, but not before tossing his scientist into the middle of a nearby lake.
Searra and Flute suddenly sense the approach of an overwhelming power from the south as Trism’s scouter beeps excitedly, confirming the incoming attack! Moments later, Lord Caius crashes through the roof, grabs Flute and demolishes another portion of the house on his exit!
Taken by surprise, everyone scrambles to give chase! Jex carries Isamaru while Trism carries Searra in order to go as fast as possible. They kept up with him fairly well. Upon arrival at the landing site they see Mauro helping the scientist out of the lake, Searra splits into four duplicates. Lord Caius throws Fluteon the ground next to the Dragonballs and shouts “Make them work!!“ “no” she said.
“Kill them, Mauro!“
While Mauro attacks one of Searra’s duplicates, a conversation ensued between Flute and Lord Caius. “So, you want to call the dragon?” she asked “Yes, summon the dragon for me now!“ demanded Lord Caius. “If I do, will you let my friends go?” asked Flute, Lord Caius did not respond. Isamaru attempted to attack Mauro but missed. Mauro then streaked past everyone and struck them all on their way past injuring a few. They all then attempted to combine their attacks to have a better chance of injuring him. While many of them hit him they failed to harm him at all. another sweeping attack from Mauro hurt Searra slightly and she began to realize that her ability to be in many places at once could be as harmful as it is helpful as Mauro passed each of her duplicates and attacked every one! Isamaru tried to push Mauro into the lake as he passed by it but was unable to hit him. Searra hid. Mauro’s next attack managed to hurt Searra badly and injure Isamaru and Flute. Searra absorbed one of her duplicates to heal herself. Another attempt to harm Mauro failed and he responded by injuring Searra again and knocking Flute out! Then everyone lost sight of Mauro. Trism grabbed Flute and took flew away from the battle to protect her.
Sem walked out from the spaceship holding his head and said “I’m ready boss” “I think Mauro has this under control“ said Lord Caius.
Having lost sight of Mauro, Isamaru attacked Lord Caius and Sem with a wide blast of energy. Lord Caius easily avoided the blast, Sem didn’t avoid it but wasn’t hurt by it. The blast also caught Jex but he was also unharmed. Jex, unable to find Mauro attacked Sem, to little effect. Sem, angered, began to move toward Jex but Lord Caius stopped him.
Realizing that the battle was lost, Isamaru grabbed two of the Dragonballs, narrowly avoiding Lord Caius’ grasp. At the same time Searra grabs the rest of the Dragonballs and they all scattered! Lord Caius could be heard roaring with rage as they all flew away! Searra heard him shout “Get them all!“
Mauro, Sem and Briar give chase while Lord Caius returns to the ship to get Shel and Gresham. After regaining consciousness, Flute explains to Trism how to summon the dragon so if she falls someone else will know how. Everyone meets back at the island and scrambles to gather the Dragonballs together.
Before the dragon could be summoned, however Mauro arrives followed by Sem and Briar, interrupting the attempt. Lord Caius appears moments later carrying Shel and Gresham. Mauro begins by attacking everyone, injuring Jex, Searra and Trism. Lord Caius aims one hand at Flute and the other at Searra and unleashes a powerful blast towards each of them. Shel attacks Isamaru and Isamaru returns the favor, neither hurt the other. Jex tried to attack Sem but missed. Searra decided to use the gun, labeled ‘D. Ray’ that Fewbert Harnsworth gave her. She aimed it at Lord Caius, it disintegrated. Searra brings The dragonballs to Trism and Flute. Knowing that physically attacking Briar is dangerous, Flute attacks his mind. Briar fell unconscious. Isamaru swings his sword like a baseball bat, sending Shel flying off into the distance. Searra makes another attempt to attack Lord Caius but fails to hurt him, Flute attacks Sem’s mind and hurts him slightly. Sem attacks Flute, he doesn’t hurt her but gets his arms around her. Fewbert Harnsworth flies out of the house in his new battle suit and blasts Mauro. Lord Caius roars as he is enveloped by raging power. Searra gets the other D. Ray from Jex and shoots at Lord Caius but she misses. Everyone notices that it is the same color of Fewbert Harnsworth’s new attack ray. Sem tightens his grip on Flute, she attacks his mind again and he flinches slightly. Isamaru and Jex take up flanking positions around Lord Caius, which turns out to be a mistake as he simply points one hand at each of them and unleashes another powerful blast at them, they both reeled in pain. Fewbert Harnsworth blasts Lord Caius but fails to harm him. Isamaru, Trism and Searra all combine their efforts and attack Lord Caius but also fail to hurt him. Lord Caius then points both of his hands at Fewbert Harnsworth, unleashing the full force of his power but Isamaru jumps between them but is, surprisingly, hurt very little. Flute begins to choke in Sem’s iron grip. Searra spots and attacks Mauro and severely injures him. Trism, and Searra decide to take the Dragonballs away from the battlefield to summon the dragon. Trism explains how to summon the dragon to Searra on the way. Gresham finally landed a successful attack on Fewbert Harnsworth, shorting out his suit and leaving him helpless.
Trism and Searra land on a nearby island and Searra summons the dragon. The Eternal Dragon, Shenron, appears, looming over the tiny island. “WHO SUMMONS ME?” says Shenron “I am Searra And me and my friends have a problem…” “SPEAK YOUR WISH!” interrupts Shenron “Um, okay” says Searra “I wish for Lord Caius and all of his minions to become powerless!” Lord Caius looks up from the battle and sees the dragon on the horizon and flies into a rage moments before he and his minions are turned into frogs. “GRANTED!” says Shenron as his eyes glow red and he, along with the dragonballs rise into the air, Shenron vanishes in a flash of light and the dragonballs scatter in seven different directions. After a brief celebration, Fewbert Harnsworth (after repairing his suit) suggested that they gather up their former enemies and make homes for them in his lab. Flute decided to keep Sem and Trism kept Mauro. Fewbert Harnsworth returned to Lord Caius’ ship and, after clearing out the frogs, began studying it.
Over the next several months, repairs are made to the house and Yumi makes a full recovery. One day, while flying around the island, Fewbert Harnsworth falls out of the sky and a simple warning displays inside his helmet; “PROBLEM”. The ‘problem’ simply goes away after a moment and he flies home to analyze the issue. He discovers nothing. Trism is next to have problems flying and she hears a small voice afterwards saying “Ah-Ha!”. Soon after, the others begin to experience occasional problems with flight and hearing giggling when it happens…
