The monks weaken further, but continue to hold fast. 

Shell flickers and fades. The monks prepare to cast it again. 

The remaining machina fire back, twice each. 

Permalink

She manages to dodge the machina shots, although one grazes her side. Aims another thundara at the monks.

Permalink

The monks scatter for the first time, a few falling. The shell they tried to cast fails, leaving them open for attack. 

A few ready swords and charge at her. 

Permalink

She surges to meet them, that terrifying cackle back on her lips. She seems adept at casting while meeting people sword-to-sword, and keeps up a barrage of elemental attacks.

Permalink

The group that rushed her aren’t quick to die, but it’s clear her talents beat theirs. The machina try to keep up fire, and the monks attempt to reshield them. 

Permalink

Hasira throws another grenade, but follows it in, trying to close the distance and remove the advantage the machina have at range.

Permalink

The machina rock backward, spinning uncertainly, leaving themselves open for attack. 

The warrior monks draw swords and a few ready low energy spells. 

Permalink

Hasira quickly darts in to finish one of the machina, aims a fira spell back at the monks.

Permalink

The monks are consumed by fire, pyreflies blossoming into the air with each one fallen. 

Permalink

She spins to deal with the last machina.

Permalink

It’s loaded and in a firing position. It lets a barrage of fire go.

Permalink

She dives into a roll to the left of the machina, but towards it again.

Permalink

There seems to be a control panel on its chest, definitely a weak spot. 

Permalink

She aims a thunder spell at that, following it up by throwing the sword in her hand at it.

Permalink

The machina jolts with the thunder spell, and has no time to parry the sword thrust. 

It goes through, the machina jolting and screeching, and then falls to the ground, destroyed. 

Permalink

She reclaims the sword, and looks at the door. She's going to assume they haven't just left it standing open?

Permalink

Unfortunately, no. They've got a machina lock secured on it.

Machina are no problem for the Al Bhed, however.

Permalink

No, they're not. She sets to work.

Permalink

She's partway through when Cid runs into the room, followed by a handful of other Al Bhed. "[Hasira, what the devil are you thinking? I taught you better than this! Get reinforcements then attack.]"

Permalink

"[Was a bit busy,]" Hasira replies off-handedly, finishing her work on the lock.

Permalink

There's a series of clinks, then the door melts away into light, leaving only the machina behind.

There is no one beyond, but a long corridor with a series of halls leading off it.

Permalink

"[Divide and conquer?]" Hasira suggests cheekily.

Permalink

"[Hasira and me, the rest of you, in pairs.]"

He looks closely. Any clues to which door they should pick?

Permalink

The hallways that seem to lead downwards would be the best bet, considering the Via Purifico's flooded prison is underground.

Permalink

Hasira picks one, and leads Cid further down.

"[Watch your step, old man,]" she says over her shoulder.
