Eli glared at Fang as the younger man charged head on at the Viruses. "Are you-" Too late. The boy had already wasted precious energy on a fruitless attack. "Look before you leap, idiot." He growled, pointing a single finger towards the yellow eye contacted to the black chokers around the guards. "You, mage brat. Shoot that thing. You, idiot. Keep those things away from him." Eli spoke sternly, issuing orders as though he were still on his boat. As the viruses prepared for another charge, Eli removed the sword he'd picked off the dead guards from earlier. "This is precisely why I brought this along." Without another word the young pirate flung the weapon towards the viruses, piercing one through chest before impaling it against the wall of the catacombs. With his initial attack launched, Eli removed his own sword as he waited for the viruses to make their next move.
