"Arceus above, deliver me from idiots!
" Javolt growls, tempted to actually fasten his sparking jaws around the Dewott's arm to see if it will cure his suicidal idiocy. Can't any of these civilians see he's trying to be a distraction?
Blood is rolling down his flanks in bright ruby red drops and his gait is beginning to get clumsier as his leg starts to go numb again. His lungs are burning from so much running and he can feel a deep ache in his heart.
The Charizard's taunt was right, he can't take much more of this before he falls apart but how long could he survive anyway without his leg?
The gleam of the golden badge on his chest reminds him of his duty. He would fight to the last breath to defend the ideals of justice. It was the only way to redeem his sinful past, to correct the mistakes of the corrupt blood flowing like lead in his veins.
"There's still time.
" He says wryly, managing to twist his jaws into a smile as he tries to force his numb limbs to move faster.
Taki, still eager despite any of the Manectric's barked warnings, dashes ahead of him and suffers a gashing blow from the fire type's clawed wingtip. He falls backwards, collapsing onto the Wobuffet as the Psychic Type fails to heed his orders to flee.
This eyeless thing
was playing with them like a cat with a mouse! It knew it was stronger than a foolish young Dewott, a Manectric past his expiry date and a pokemon known for its passive nature and it was toying with them.
Javolt grits his teeth and tries to ignore the burning pain that is slowly creeping up his back and the cold numbness creeping up from his blue paws.
He arrives in the attack too late, seeing the empty rot in the fire type's eye sockets as it tilts its head back towards the darkening sky and once again breathes the harsh corrosive smelling flames from its jaws.
His good eye widens as meteor-like sprays of flame become separate burning embers that fall around him. The bright golden red of fire surrounds him as every patch of vegetation nearby starts to blaze; he can barely see anything through the heat haze and the choking coils of smoke. His scarred and blank eye can see nothing at all but a harsh golden light.
In confusion he barks pitifully, desperate for a soft voice of command from the radio still clipped to his chequered collar. Over the crackling of flame the hiss of static is nearly inaudible.
The scorched bare earth slips under Javolt's paws as even the faint tremors of pain fade from his wounded hind leg and leave it entirely numb and unresponsive. The muscle has been completely severed through by the stress of running; he can't even feel the thick coating of red blood sticking together his faded blue fur. His run is broken into a three legged limp as he tries to maintain his balance and slips.
He falls forwards into a patch of charred grass. Fire runs bright red fingers through the plumes of yellow fur on his injured side as he struggles to stand on three legs with one of them screaming in pain.
Openly panting for air he struggles to rise. His lungs hurt in the parched dried air produced by the nearby flames and the scent of singed hair lets him know his bloodied and useless limb has been caught by the blaze. The Inspector struggles to roll over and extinguish the flames, smearing his own dark blood across the dry ground as the light golden fur on one side of his body is seared to a scorched stubble. His skin is blistered by the heat but he can't feel it at all, only look at the blistering burns forming on his skin.
His leg is completely dead.
The elderly Manectric snaps his jaws angrily as he tries to locate the Charizard through the haze of flame. The fire burns denser here then further along the verge where Taki and Mirror had fallen. He has ended up closer to the heart of the flames than he realized with the lack of speed of his charge and a patch of the flame suddenly resolves itself into something out of a nightmare.
Eyeless sockets and lava dripping jaws are suddenly looming over to him, he has ended up at the charizard's feet!
((OOC: Charizard you have permission to remove the leg or pick him up by it))
