[???]

A font of memories floods the air... A girl, too old to cry, awakens from a montage of danger and death.

This is the story of the dragon hunter.

The first memory, a recent memory, of a three-person job to subdue a monster terrorizing a rice plantation just off the coast of a nearby island of Drachurst. The wilderness around was torn by claw marks, and the scream of the third person's death was beginning to fade out of Ariadne's ears. 'Twas a shame, he'd been a skilled navigator and a perfect sharpshooter. Even the best of the best could fall to this sort of beast, though.

Ariadne preferred to work alone, but at least the others with her would serve some use to her. She glances at the other person contracted for the mission, trying to estimate what tactics to go for.

The older-looking (his hair was stark white and eyes slitted like a cat, but he didn't have wrinkles upon his face more than an old scar from left cheek to eye) man stands in his light mail and leather, the pair of swords he never seemed to take off riding in their sheathes, hilts poking up over his right shoulder. He scans the area almost lazily, clearly just as at ease here as he would've been in a town. Even the death of the other didn't seem to faze the old Witcher, though it's said that nothing ever did. His eyes appear to catch upon something, and he runs a hand over his bearded chin. "Four-hundred forty yards, coming from the right." He remarks. He draws his steel blade.

"Affirmative." she respods, pulling out a deceptively small handgun. Should be enough.

She looks in the direction indicated and spots it vaguely.

Mensch pulls a loaded crossbow off his belt for his left hand.

Before long it nears them, its left leg ruined by the sharpshooter's shot. Immediately after it had been hit, the sharpshooter had all but exploded in a strange sludge. Ariadne doesn't plan on making the same mistake. She shifts her stance cautiously and takes aim.

Mensch keeps his crossbow for after Ariadne's shot.

Ariadne fires twice, at the frilly fin- like protrusions on its neck and sides. The shots tear through the film without seeming to do too much major damage.

Mensch aims for any exposed flesh on it's back or torso and looses the bolt.

The bolt connects, And the dragon roars. Its scales blocked most of the damage, but it still suffers a nast scratch.

As it roars, the ground trembles, and the same manner of sludge threatens to spew forth right beneath Mensch.

The Witcher is already in motion, however. A strong push of his legs sends him arcing backwards in a leap. He lands and pulls the crossbow into the cocked position, inserting another bolt.

Enraged, the monster lunges forward, one claw swiping at Ariadne, the other at Mensch. Ariadne ducks ad slides under its grasp, shooting at it from close range. The shot glances, and the beast ignores it to charge Mensch.

The witcher vaults over the extended claw, slashing with his blade as he lands behind.

The dragon roars loudly, and spouts of high pressure sludge burst out of the ground. The slash doesn't make it deep enough to gravely injure the beast, however. While it roars, Ariadne shoots its mouth thrice. The shots don't do any damage to it physically, but it closes its mouth. Ariadne pockets her gun, looking satisfied.

Mensch avoids the spurts as best he can.

The spurts make contact with neither Ariadne nor Mensch.

Mensch circles, looking for an opening

The dragon makes a swipe at Mensch again, more sluggishly. It opens its mouth again, to yawn.

He dodges and fires a bolt into the mouth.

"Don't cause it unnecessary harm! It'll soon be unconscious, and then I can take it away." She pulls out a second, larger gun, and holds it aimed toward Mensch. This one probably doesn't contain tranquilizers.

"It'll be more efficient for me to domesticate it. Leave it for me." She pulls out a binding crystal and steps toward the monster.

Mensch almost audibly grits his teeth. "The contract was for it to be exterminated. If you didn't want to do the damned job, don't take the damned contract!"

He fires another bolt into its mouth and closes to deliver a strong blow with his sword.

"My methods of extermination work just fine," Ariadne snarls, shooting two rockets from her gun aimed at Mensch. They are aimed a ways past him - warning shots. "I'll take it from here."

She holds the crystal and walks closer to the monster, preparing to bind it to her.

Before she can come very close at all, Mensch drives his blade twice in quick succession into the hollow of its neck.
