Christian was thrown back by the scales and watched as one soldier got a scratch on the torso of his body.
He was profusely bleeding and it came far too close towards his heart as it was only a few centimeters off due to his blade changing the directory of the scale.
This sight brought forth the realization that something really was off with this monster. Albeit, a little too late, Christian had yet to lose a soul in this battle and as long as he observed the beast properly would his safety be insured.
The clueless attitude the Lizard had once shown was now turned into curiosity that was piqued by the new toys
Indifferent to the threatening gazes, it scoffed at Christian and tried to eat one of his soldiers.
Its upper body lunged forward and twirled mid air to create an illusion that threw off the people holding on its scales.
Enchanting Magicians looked toward the poor victim and quickly attempted to save him by enhancing his physical capabilities.
Death was coming closer and memories of the past flew into the insignificant man's head. The precious meaning of life enlightened him at the sadness of what the end will inventively be however an empowering vitality brought forth his potential to avoid that attack.
He was planning to jump to the side in order to not die but the lizard moved in an unexpected direction.
There was no more reason to dodge any incoming attack as the Lizard turned its large body towards another direction.
The problem was that there were no warriors in sight but only mages.
Mages that had just casted the enchanting magic.
Focusing too much onto someone else, they were unaware of the potential danger that they had brought upon themselves.
Magic had to take time before it could be continuously casted meaning they were left vulnerable.
Christian immediately noticed this and wanted to yell for soldiers to save them but his rationality knew that there was no point.
3 people were instantly devoured while the rest were pushed aside by the wind.
Memories of the past flew into Christian that left him in a melancholy mood.
Countless people dying for wealth and a happy ending for their family. Patriotism driving them forward one by one.
The screams of a widow and the sulk of a child.
This was the curse of an emperor.
Only with violence and endurance will a king slowly unify the land and create peace, order for everyone.
Christian decisively called half of his people to flank the beast as a distraction while others could run off towards the medics.
He was proud to see that many Summoning Magicians had brought forth their creatures to recover any allies in danger that may have trouble walking.
However there was not time to waste as he must stick to the plan.
The diversion had already ran off and tried to annoy the creature by striking towards the tail.
A scale was scratched off showing off a pink flesh, vulnerable to sharp weapons the severing of a tail.
Horned Viper Murderer was instantly thrown into a panic at that moment and didn't attempt to wave the enemies away with his tail but instead bare its fangs against them.
Christian had told his group to spread out to prepare for any unexpected moves and was a good call.
One soldier had moved towards the left of Christian and had a chance to attack an opening.
Holding two small daggers in his hand, he acted like a hero and charged without a worry. Jumping an abnormal height due to his light armor, A unguarded eye was wide open in front of him.
Noticing a weird peculiarity, it seemed like a spot of dust was inching closer towards its face.
The Horned Viper Murderer moved its iris and stared straight into the eyes of the incoming foe.
A cryptic black void reflected the image of two daggers attacking and the intimidated face of the soldier.
Fear started to build up when looking at those deadly eyes however it was too late to back away as victory was close with this one attack.
Two daggers stabbed down as the man avoided the eyes and only felt the sensation of liquid drenching him.
Weapons stuck and blinding the Horned Viper Murderer, the soldier felt relief and a sense of euphoric happiness.
He was a hero.
Someone who contributed a large amount into a battle that will allow his friends, comrades to live.
Why wouldn't he be happy?
For some reason, his body seemed to be heading towards the ground at a faster rate than what gravity would have normally done to him.
A resounding question that was accidentally spoken aloud was echoed across the battlefield.
Dust fogged the area as a huge bang created a small crater from the strong force the lizard had released.
Christian covered his eyes with his arms and waited fro the dust to dissipate as he tried to see what was happening in the dust.
There were screams of anguish and the surroundings a strange quietness enveloped the area.
Common sense prevailed against irrational fear as people hurried to get into groups and get more information of the dangerous foe.
No one had yet to strike randomly while the quietness turned into an eerie silence, waiting to kill everyone in an instant.
To Christian's surprise, the dust had calmed itself and had already fallen down.
From the previous experience of fighting the Horned Viper Murderer, Christian knew it was not proficient in assassinating any of his men without making a single noise.
This was derived from the violent, playful style that could not be silenced and the skills his soldiers can use to defend themselves.
The veil of dust had now revealed a new show for Christian to face against the Horned Viper Murderer as they both stared at each other.
Next to a lizard was a crushed corpse.
