A lifetime observation from the former Impero discerned the 23rd Strigidae's competent approach regarding her flaunted defensive blood-bending. Quickly however, Ishin's analytical efforts were halted, a pulverizing force blasting into his liver, vehemently rupturing the organ. Hunching over in immediate pain, his body dropping, balance maintained only by knees braced against the grassy landscape. Combating the natural instinct to panic, the Martial Messiah remained collected, struggling to resist the impairing pain as he diverts the bulk of his biophysical energy, his chi into his abdominal region, infusing an engrossed quantity into his liver. And though not healed, the momentary ethereal fortification would enable him to continue.
Lamely rising to both feet, his features still ceaselessly expressionless, his previous winces and gritting teeth replaced by his usual emotionless visage. Thrusting one his open left palm forward, curling his fingers, the Keijijo Prophet seeks to lower the temperature of his pupil's blood, intent on rendering her movements sluggish, somewhat stripping her off her optimum reaction time, disabling her from performing fortifying blood-bending hand gestures, and weakening her defensive technique. Chaining the subtle attack with a rigid twist of his right wrist, his hand clawed as he seeks to contort and twist Ivana by the limbs and by the joints. Relying on a non-lethal approach to test her defensive technique against a sequential blood-bending assault.
Impaired by his ruptured liver, chi-based fortifications failing with every passing second, Ishin pants, dropping again to a single knee before calmly declaring, "I concede". Pain once again viciously stinging his internally damaged midsection.
