"Alive or Dead" Is Inaccurate... [P-Lilith&I][M:E]

It hadn't been hard to track down the hostage. Just like it wasn't hard now to follow the trail of the agent on their way to rescue them. A member of a glorified vigilante group, people were saying. The hostage was only beneficial to the fanatic organisation in two settings - alive and in their custody, or dead. The directions were simple in theory, terminate the agent and retrieve the captive. But their target was either horribly underestimating anyone who might try to follow them, or that was precisely what they wanted. That had been the reasoning behind bringing the "asset" along with them, in case it was a trap.

That was where the asset came into play. The masked man sat unmoving in the stealth carrier, armed head to toe and without a single thought concerning the conversation around him. If the information fed to him didn't assist in preparing for the mission to come, it didn't even get in one ear to go out the other.

"Target located, prepare for landing--"

"Don't land it here."

The footman turned to stare the Soldier down. Licking his lips uneasily, he relented. "Alright, everyone get your chutes ready."

Once the three henchmen and the Soldier were out of the carrier, the craft turned to land well out of sight. The Winter Soldier didn't wait for his comrades to land before hunting down the opposing agent's trail.



To all of my children in whom Life flows abundant,
To all of my children to whom Death hath passed his judgement,
The soul yearns for honour, and the flesh the hereafter:
Look to those who walked before to lead those who walk after.
Shining is the Land's light of justice,
Ever flows the Land's well of purpose.
Walk free, walk free, walk free, believe.
The Land is alive, so believe...

He knew they were coming. That had been obvious for awhile now. He could have tried to outrun his pursuers, but they had resources and technology that he did not have access to. And by no means could they afford to let this fanatical organization get their hands on the hostage he was trying to rescue. They were too dangerous; there was far too much at stake.

A part of him vaguely wondered if this fanatical organization knew exactly who or what they were chasing.

And so here Vensemont Greyvalle was, carving well-placed, well-hidden runes and symbols into the dirt. These traps would at least slow down those who hunted him. With one last quick motion, he had finished and began to run once more.

He had to reach the prisoner first.

It burns beyond the grave
There's lead inside my belly
Cause my soul has lost its way

There was no regard to whether his comrades were following behind him or not. It didn't matter to the Soldier if they had even landed in the right place. Even if they would be beneficial to killing the agent, he was more than capable of pulling that off on his own. But as he stalked through the trees and boulders that littered the mountain range, he could sense the presence of the other henchman behind him.

Not that that lasted for very long, as they all three managed to get ahead of him-- and trigger a number of magical traps. The trio were, for all intents and purposes, incapacitated. So the Soldier moved on ahead of them, his eyes now following the ground to look for any signs of more traps, and his ears trained on the distance ahead of him.

He would find this agent. And they would not survive the encounter.

Vensemont ducked under branches and skirted past bushes and ferns as he continued to run, only diverting his path when absolutely necessary. His booted footfalls were quiet, though the plants he was rushing past would certainly make audible noise. He was attempting to be as quiet about it as possible, but there was only so much he could do to dampen it as he ran.

The muffled sound of surprised cries behind him told him his traps had worked. Good. The corners of his lips quirked upward as he continued. That took care of some of them. Hopefully all but one. But no matter, there were still a few more traps lying in wait, ones that he had carved into the dirt before his pursuers had arrived. And if those didn't work? He had other things up his sleeve.

Speaking of which, Vensemont stopped between a couple of trees after a few hundred feet of sprinting. He knelt by one, placing a hand against the bark near the bottom of the trunk and began to mutter softly. An incantation. A rune flared softly before dimming down to almost nothing as he finished and he did the same on the other side. It was a magical tripwire of sorts. Satisfied, the agent continued forward.

Time to see just what kind of cat was after him.
