Reken rode a top of his white horse. The horse was an ice elemental. Particles of ice dust flew off its mane and tail. The horse's size was outside the normal range adding to the horse's presence. He was headed towards an outpost that was near the barrier. He was going there to see an old friend from his past. He pulled back on the reigns to slow his horse to a stop. His friend was their to greet him with a smile. Before he could even leap off of his horse he was stopped. "Lyn?" Reken questioned his friend as she stood there with a grim look on her face. "Reken, the reason I sent for you so urgently is because the war is about to start again. The troops lay in wait for the fall of the barrier. They have even brought the Wings of Bahamut here. I hope you and Aria's people are ready. You must hurry to their aide ! I shall remain here and try my best to supply you with information !"
Reken pulled hard at the reigns. His eyes were trained on the barrier. It was still there, maybe he would be able to get there before the fighting started and send Aria some sort of warning. Those thoughts were quickly quelled when the barrier shattered. With in moments the sky went black and he knew what the cause was. He did not even have to whip the reigns for his horse to know to go even faster. When he got to Aria only a few moments later he could already hear the cries of war and see flames, lightning, and ice from the dragons being rained down upon the unsuspecting people of Aria. This wave would be followed but the ground dragons with foot troops within the coming hours. He cursed himself for a moment but readied himself for the task at hand. He needed to help push his own people back or, at the very least, help hold them off while everyone else escaped.
His horse covered itself in armor of ice it conjured itself. Reken patted his partner "Are you ready, Kouje"? The horse let out grunt and stamped his hooves on the ground before charging in. Reken readied his spear for combat. When he entered the city people were running and the guards were defending them, but they were already scattered and in disarray. He expected this and was not phased by this. Reken and Kouje charged towards a dragon who had his back turned towards him. Leaping off Kouje Reken landed on the back of the beast and climbed towards the rider who was oblivious to him. Reken ran the rider through. He had wounded the rider enough to put him out of battle without killing him. The dragon, now aware of the unwanted person on its back, turned its head and blew fire out of its mouth.
Reken slide from the dragon on to the ground dodging the fire. He then preceded to stab the dragon in its exposed underside piercing the heart. The dragon's bode fell lifelessly onto the ground. It was there that Reken saw a woman who was obviously the intended target. A knight, whom had seen what Reken had just done, landed behind Reken with a loud thud and cursed at him for felling his comrade. Kouje came alongside Reken and pierced the dragon through its chest with a massive icicle.
