The Baron enters the arena, his glowing yellow eyes alert for any movement until he spots the box in the middle of the room. Innocuous though it may seem, he nonetheless examines it from afar. He heard what happened to the leader of the Defias in a previous round and has no intention of suffering a similar fate. His skeletal toes click on the floor as he cautiously approaches the box. If he were inclined to emotion anymore he might feel pride at his lack of reaction when the Cardboard Assassin pops out of the box, but since his emotions have gone the way of his flesh he merely nods his satisfaction upon seeing his foe reveal itself.Flexing his bony digits, the Baron prepares to deal with this mockery swiftly. "This is just too easy..." Shadow courses through him to inflict pain and suffering upon the engineer's creation before him. A hint of uncertainty crosses his features when his foe appears unconcerned, but he continues, casting wracking pain upon the bobbing cardboard figure. Still no reaction from his foe. He grits his teeth and raises his skeletal hands, intent on choking the life from the slowly swaying assassin, then thinks better of it. "I grow tired of this hunt .... time to die!"Shadow-dark wings grow from his back and the Baron throws back his head and laughs, a bone-chilling sort of laugh, as wave after wave of Shadow pulses from his undead self, unleashing a Calamity upon the simple Cardboard Assassin. One might call it overkill, watching the Shadow tear the cardboard form to shreds. Baron Ashbury didn't think so. As he turns to leave he mutters scornfully, "There was no sport in that kill..."

Ah, a great write indeed! :)A shame that it won't probably make it to the next episode because of some kid who finds hilarious to ruin the competitive aspect of this tournament by voting a piece of paper.This whole cardboard thing is just stupid, I'm sorry.

Thank you for your kind words. :) This was my first time trying a Two Bosses Enter writeup and I likely would have continued lurking if I hadn't felt the need to evict the Cardboard Assassin from the tourney. I'm hoping my words will sway the voting masses, but I fear you are likely correct. "Har har! Engineering toy wins!" will probably be Baron Ashbury's downfall. It shouldn't though, he's too smart to fall for a stupid piece of cardboard.

See, this is what would really happen. Hopefully we can get the jokers to lay off this time.
