Zip! Matthias felt Tera reach out with the force and snatch his sword away. Sadly, the hunter didn't look too surprised. Matthias stood, his staff foward, waiting, watching, surprised to see the Bounty Hunter not slow his speed down at all. Infact, he was speeding up. Questions rushed through his mind, wondering what was happening. But it came oh so late. Matthias fell to the ground on his back, slamming against the stone streets. His old body didn't take the blow so well, and pain swelled in and out of his body. He grimaced, quietly groaning as he stood up. This bounty hunter was trained, and had just slammed into his body, most un-expected. He must have figured, as an old man, he wouldn't be too strong on the hand-to-hand combat part. Sadly, he was correct. Matthias was more surprised to see the hunter flip out a jewel. Darkness swarmed it's very soul, flashing, flashing with power. The hunter smiled and held the jewel with the tips of his fingers, then swung his arm foward in the direction of Tera. Matthias could feel it's power twisting, collecting the surrounding energy. Tera looked surprised. "You Jedi are no match for the ancient power of the Chuzan!" Chuzan? Matthias had never heard of that. All he knew was that it couldn't have been good. Matthias raised his staff in the air, and some of the stalls surrounding them flew through the air and whizzed by in the direction of the Bounty Hunter. He just smiled. Raising the jewel in the air, red energy began to swirl around the jewel. It twisted, growing faster and bigger. It suddenly all zipped into the crystal. The last Matthias saw was a flash of red power, zipping towards his and Tera's face. OOC: No we didn't die, just get hurt and knocked out. BTW, the hunter is supposed to have been hired by the city goverment. Or at least something like that.
