The white armor of Zangetsu shone under the light of the winter moon. Shield clutched tightly in his left hand, he drew his arm back so he could draw his blade. Energy built up around his shield, and he slashed it forward, sending a wave of power cutting through a building. People fled, screaming. The building went up in flames.
As people fled, Zangetsu lifted his Musou Saber and started to fire on them.
Andrea had been out on the town, shopping for New Year's items when Zangetsu had begun to attack the town. Rushing to the epicenter of it all, they spotted Zangetsu firing upon the citizens. "What the hell?! Another white Rider?" she asked Mai, turning to face her.
"Possibly. For now there's not much else we can do except fight," she replied, taking out her Driver and Lockseed. The pair then activated their Drivers and transformed, charging at Zangetsu with weapons drawn.
Zangetsu turned his head to look at the two Riders. He fired off the rest of his shots towards the civilians before lifting his shield, focusing energy into it. He slashed it out for Baron while recocking and firing with his Musou at Gaim.
Andrea didn't have time to react, and she took the shots chest first, getting knocked back. Mai, meanwhile, had swung the Banaspear at the shield, deflecting it to the side of things. "Kureshima! What are you doing?!" Mai shouted. "Why are you attacking Zawame?"
At the sound of his name, Zangetsu gripped his head and let out a cry. He ran forward and started to slash wildly with his shield, aiming for Baron, not bothering to wield his sword as a slashing weapon.
Mai continued to block his attacks. "Where is your pride, attacking the sort of people you were meant to protect?" she taunted. A little out of character for her, but hopefully it would bring him to his senses. "You're becoming no better than the monsters you fight against!"
As Andrea stood up, she saw Baron and Zangetsu locked in combat. Taking out the Genesis Core and a Lemon Energy Lockseed, she attached both to her belt and cut the Lockseed.
MIX! ORANGE ARMS! HANAMICHI ON STAGE! JINBA LEMON! HA HA~
She then took aim with the Sonic Arrow, firing it at the White Rider.
Zangetsu didn't answer Baron. He kept putting pressure on his shield, building up energy around it as well to try to get a strike in. He wasn't aware of what Gaim was up to, but did hear the belt and turned to look as she fired on him. He lifted his Musou and began to fire, trying to cancel out the arrows, but had the sword ready to parry anything that he couldn't cancel.
Even in this state, he knew that he was superior. He knew he could fight a two front battle.
He didn't have his sword... If he did, he could have used his Sparking on top of Au Lait. Instead he hunched over and activated his belt, folding up his armor and hoping to take the brunt to his shield and armor.
