Facing off against this new Gato opponent, Ros waited for him to make the first move. The first move would always decide how the fight went, and Ros wanted to make sure it went his way. But suddenly, out of nowhere, Lilith appeared behind the Gato student. Whispering something in his ear, Rosgwak briefly noted that her hand was bleeding, and he made a mental note to check up on that after. But, as quickly as she had appeared, Lilith disappeared back into the fight again, leaving the Gato sufficiently distracted. Wanting to end this senseless fight quickly, Ros thrust at his right arm with lightning speed, and instead of withdrawing his rapier gently, ripped it straight out through the side, eliciting a scream of pain from the Gato student as he dropped his sword. Then, using the momentum he'd gathered, Rosgwak continued on his course around, making a high diagonal slash down, which was blocked, as he had hoped, by his opponent. Drawing his rapier along his enemy's blade and down, Rosgwak thrust home once more, into his other sword arm, then in one quick movement Ros drew his free rapier across the student's knees, dropping him to the ground in pain. Then, retreating, Rosgwak looked around for Lilith, to thank her, but he couldn't see her anywhere. Wordlessly kicking aside the other student's rapiers, Rosgwak once again moved towards the mages to help defend them, wondering just when this brutal battle would end.
