Duel to the Death: Cassie Dune

I, Andy Peloquin, challenge you, Victoria DeLuis, to a duel to the death! But it is not we who will fight, but our characters…

In the black corner, weighing in at 180 pounds, standing a cool 6 feet tall, the Hunter of Voramis!

Bucelarii 2 Small

Tale of the Tape:

  • Superhuman reflexes, strength, speed–think Captain America, but stronger
  • Thousands of years of weapons training
  • Body has accelerated healing factor–can survive a sword to the heart (can be killed by drowning, iron weapons, beheading, and suffocation)
  • Cannot be killed by anything but iron
  • Accursed dagger that heals him when he kills
  • No magical abilities whatsoever
  • No hesitation to kill if he perceives opponent as a threat/obstacle to his desires–classic anti-hero

In the purple corner, weighing in at a miniscule 110 pounds, standing a tiny 5’ 4”, the necromancer Cassie Dune.

Tale of the Tape:

  • Cassie is the bearer of a Caim tattoo infused with metal from the Pair Dadeni (the Black Cauldron of Rebirth). This tattoo enhances her magical ability to:
  • Control spirits and raise the dead
  • Cast a powerful circle of protection, that creates a shockwave of energy around her, casting her enemies away and denying them the chance to cause her physical harm
  • If gravely injured, the tattoo brings forth the power of the cauldron of rebirth and heals her mortal wounds
  • A guardian of trapped souls, Cassie has released thousands of spirits trapped within enchanted artefacts and sent them to their awaiting afterlife, and she would feel it her duty to free those trapped within Soulhunger

Two enter the ring, only one can leave alive!

To kill Cassie: The Hunter would try to overwhelm her with his inhuman speed, strength, and skill. All he has to do is pierce her skin with Soulhunger, and the dagger will consume her soul. Not even someone with considerable magical abilities can survive Soulhunger’s bite–it was created to kill demons.

How would Cassie kill the Hunter? With her circle of protection in place, Cassie would call forth ghosts and zombies to attack the Hunter, while utilising her magical abilities to weave an unbreakable bond into the structure of Soulhunger at an atomic level. When, at last, she becomes one with the accursed blade, she would fracture and destroy it from within, freeing the trapped souls in the process. Without his blade to heal him, Hunter will succumb to the zombie horde, who will not hesitate to rip his head off.

Winner: Cassie Dune. Not even the Hunter can stand before a horde of the undead.

    An I threshing fight though to be honest wouldn’t the Hunter realize there’s a problem when he can’t rush her? Wouldn’t he step back and rethink his attack strategy?
    Also I’d like to see Nameless (Out of the Darkness by Kat Caffee ) go against Cassie and see if he fairs better.

    • He might, unless he’s too busy fighting off the zombies and ghosts to escape. If she can summon enough zombies, not even the Hunter can defeat an army of the undead.
