Well, Zapdos was thrilled to the the massive hoard of undead rinally begin to break up. But the horrors of the Steelix underneath almost made him wish that he hadn't helped. Oh... Dear Arceus...
The thing- it was a miracle it was still alive
. zapdos hovered down lower, touching his great taloned feet to the ground. His head bowed down in uncharacteristic respect, pulling his small wings in close to his body as the duel type simply lay there. But then it spoke. The Kanto region Legend's head snapped up, horror showing in his wide cerulean eyes as he listened to the poor creature begged for death. The revelation that they, five of the strongest and most well known Legends, could not save even this one creature shook Zapdos to the core. He took an involentary step back, unqble to hide the horror that dawned on his face. The Steelix was infected, there was not a doubt in the world now, and it would just become a simple monster unless they acted in mercy. But where Suicune, Raikou, and Ho-oh all acted swiftly, Zapdos found himself stiff and frozen in place. His gaze stayed upon the Steelix's as it was given a swift death with many different elements. He was unable to tear his gaze away as the poor creature was given back to Arceus.
It was only when the attacks ceased that Zapdos was able to move, wretching his gaze away from the mutalated body. He was tremebling but quickly opened his wongs to hide his discomfort. The thunder bird had not even been able to attack in time to help with saving the Steelix. He had failed his own duties as a Legend. The revelation brought bile to his throat.
But it was only them that Zapdos realized that Entei had not taken part, either. The bird snapped back to attention, glancing around with narrowed eyes. Where did you go...
Without warning, the Kanto native snapped his wings out, electricity cackling off of his wing feathers, and took back to the air. He rose into the air, stopping to hover several yards above ground, and he all too easily spotted the third dog. He was laying under a tree not far from the group. Zapdos regaurded him with scrutiny. Looks more like he collapsed than taking a nice little nap.
His mental voice was bitter. Zapdos had already forgotten his own cowardice at not attacking with the others and now he was putting all of his fear and frustration into hate for the infected mutt
. Zapdos felt the clouds that had threatened to gather before swirl above him, a distant thunder booming. His anger was taking over all too easily at the sick sight of Entei. He should have cared more, but Zapdos just wanted to smite his infected brother with a thunderbolt. It was Ho-oh's voice that brought Zapdos from his murderous thoughts. We should get moving…
The Kanto Legend immediately dismissed his thoughts, the clouds above remaining but the thunder now nothing more than a distant grumble. He turned his head to regaurd Ho-oh, giving the smallest of nods. With a few flaps of his wings, Zapdos was back by the phoenix's side. Zapdos cleared his throat awkwardly. Now that he was in his right mind again he felt ashamed for his previous actions. But he spoke to his fellow bird anyway. I agree. There is nothing more that we could do.
Zapdos was more than awear that by 'we' he had meant Suicune, Raikou, and Ho-oh, but he was not going to give anyone a chance to correct him. Zapdos' next words for everyone, save Entei, Ho-oh informed me that you are heading for a human base in Viridian. I don't know how well all of you know Kanto, but I could easily lead the way if nessisary.
Zapdos turned to Ho-oh, more directing the offer at him. He was the one that had been in front of the group and, after all, he was their father.
