IC-Kal/Grochi: "I still don't see why we have to go to the village just this minute," A tall Toa of Stone grumbled to his brother. He was looking warily around, as though he expected something to jump out any moment and attack him...or, judging by his posture, the Toa walking next to him. "Because my brother," The other Toa said, "There are some supplies we need that are rather hard to just find by foraging. Do you think you could make me a cane?" He asked plaintively, looking up to the taller Toa.This short one was small and hunchbacked, only slightly taller than a turaga. He looked at the world with shrewd, perceptive eyes, and moving very carefully. Unlike his tall brother who had gunmetal gray armor with hints of brown, the hunchback had green and white armor...a very uncommon coloration. "Sure, Grochi," the Toa of stone said, holding his hand about waist high above the ground. Suddenly, a column of rock shot up, curled into a knot at the top, then tapered down near the end to a small spike. The taller toa broke it off the ground and handed it to his brother, his clawed armor scratching the stone. "Thanks," the shorter toa said, grasping at the staff with a four fingered hand. Suddenly he turned to the side, staring up as a large Muaka jumped from behind a rock at him. He yanked his short sword violently out of it's sheath, and channeled energy into it, making it glow with a green plasma energy. He started to stalk toward the Muaka, his sword held out menacingly. "Let me handle this cat, brother," The toa of stone said cheerfully, flexing his arms. He started to pull his brother away, but the smaller Toa angrily shook off his grip. "No!" The angered Toa of Plasma said. "I'm sorry Kal, but this creature tried to kill me! Now it sh..ehh..." The smaller toa suddenly stiffened, dropping his sword to the ground, then energies running along its blade snuffing out. The Muaka, seeing it's chance, swiped at him, sending him sprawling a few feet away, where he then lay on the ground, convulsing in a violent seizure. "Grochi!" The toa of stone yelled, then jumped between his brother and the Muaka. The rahi then swiped a claw at him too, which he promptly grabbed, heaving the Muaka off the side of the cliff. He then ran to his brother. It didn't look good. He had a large gash cutting through the top three layers of his armor, and his convulsions had his blood flowing fast enough that it welled up through the tears faster than his brother could stanch the bleeding. "Don't worry," The taller Toa said, even though his brother couldn't hear him. "I'll get help." The taller Toa then picked up his brother, and, slinging him over his shoulder, ran towards the Koro yelling for a doctor. OOC: Yes, TDC, I'm dropping them back with you.
