The thing saw Kaine, and instantly swiped at him with its blades which passed clean through his form, but did no harm. This seemed to confuse it, as though the Akx wasn't sure which of its sensors to believe. Kaine placed himself so that he was standing firm between it and the shock-stung Lofflin. The ghostly form turned its head to look back at Lofflin, winked, and grinned at him in an all too Human fashion, nodded at him, and then turned to face his eternal foe again. The specter shouted something long and complex that sounded like both a taunt and an insult in his long-dead tongue – ending in an echo just as he defiantly directed an obscene sign at it that was as universally recognizable in his own time and culture as it was to Lofflin.

Angry and bewildered, the thing slashed at Kaine again and again, a whirl of smooth motion with all four arms, doing no harm at all. The swishing and whirling of blades all in vain.

The wind had only been momentarily broken by the energy burst, it was still there – and so were the faint wails and screams, which seemed to be fading into it, charging it with momentum, spinning the maelstrom around them faster and faster. Lofflin was at the center of a cauldron of intense… awe – and the power of vengeance and justice and righteous anger, traversing the ages! It was a harmony of discord, an alliance between worlds and cultures and between this life and the next. Time seemed to freeze as he fired again.
