Duel to the Death: Mila – Andy Peloquin

Duel to the Death: Mila

So in my coffee-fueled writing frenzy, I came up with a crazy new idea: put the Hunter against any and every character willing to challenge him. It doesn’t matter the genre or power set.

Our first contestant…

I, Andy Peloquin, challenge you, Kindra Sowder, 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!

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 green corner, standing at 5′ 4″, we have Mila, the 23-year old telekinetic from The Permutation Archives.


Tale of the Tape:

  • Telekinesis
  • Can sense energy in people with similar abilities

Two enter the ring, only one can leave alive!

How would Mila kill the Hunter?  if she focuses on the atoms of an object (inanimate or living) she can cause nuclear fission inside of their bodies. This causes a chain reaction much like the atom bomb but only internally because of her telekinetic ability.

To kill Mila: 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.

Who would win?

The Hunter’s ability to move in total silence would allow him to sneak up on Mila. IF he could catch her by surprise, he could put a dagger in her or snap her neck.

However, if she senses his presence, she would be able to cause the fission-like chain reaction in his body that could blow him to bits. Not even his demonic healing abilities could resurrect him from that.

Probable Winner: Mila! (Size and skill at arms are not the only way to survive…)

Awesome Resources for Creative Writing: Story Starts


  1. Rusty

    Good outcome, but The Hunter is an assassin, stealthy, and one does not get where he is without being able to take down those more powerful than he. I think it all boils down to who sees who first….

  2. Claire

    Yes and since Mila can only sense others with similar powers and the hunter has no powers she wouldn’t be able to sense him, plus he is methodical and patient so think would depend entirely on the arena

    • I agree. The Hunter has a very good chance of sneaking up on her and putting an end to her once and for all. However, if she can sense him and react before he gets close enough: SPLAT!!

  3. Ahhh see, she can sense abilities. Not just those similar to her. Something that is immortal technically has an ability.
