Sparring... having Luchesi out in the arena during its downtime was never a good idea. By Arena standards, however, each Monster was to be given some time in the arena so that he didn't just rot away in his cell. Luchesi, however, he didn't like being out in the arena. How he gained his name as the "Ravager" was quite the story, though there's no real time to go into specifics just yet. It would suffice to say that Luchesi had been 'summoned' to show his strength. Luchesi wandered a long dark hallway that lead towards a light in the distance, marred by the Iron gates he knew all too well. He couldn't help but squint as he neared the opening. The doorway opened before him as he held an arm up to stop the flow of light. He found himself in the arena before long, spectators of the lower classes lined the stands in order to see the likely candidates for their purchase.
Luchesi could see across the field as things were underway. The armed guards that watched his back from afar shut the entrance. No escape for any of the Mach in the arena for their sparring. Luchesi could see in the distance, however, a smoke screen. It would seem as though some fighting was already underway. He wasn't one to get involved with the fights of other Mach... hell, he didn't even like the prospect of fighting for himself. So he drew himself a bit to the side where upon he'd be able to eye the fight from afar. Different Mach fought each other as well. It was a bit of a proving ground, it just so happened that the smokescreen seemed to be lining a more intense fight. Luchesi crept his way through the sparring couples only to have his attention called by a buzzing voice "Ravager, you and I will fight!". Luchesi turned his head only to see a purple colored preying mantis humanoid eyeing him with hungry eyes. With a large scowl on his face, he couldn't help but eye the creature in disgust. Bugs, he thought, were honestly the most horrifying creatures on earth and the monsters who had gained bug-like forms were just plain discomforting for the steel tempered monster of a man we call Ravager.
Luchesi knew that the thing was past the brink of reason "Fight me or die, welp". He quickly leaned over towards a granite made of mostly granite, good size too. The now hard as rock Luchesi turned his gaze over to the monster who had gained his attention and stood still, clenched fists at his sides. "I know what you're thinking, we don't have to do this. You don't have to prove yourself" he said as he eyed the purple preying mantis man down with his red eyes. "Oh, but that's where you're wrong. If I win, I end up with an owner and I get into the big leagues..." the creature said with a hiss and a snarl as he poised his arms out. Luchesi grit his teeth and raised his fists up to take a stance of his own. He certainly didn't look like your average monster, hell, some would say he looked like an average man... until he covered himself in stone or Steel, that is. The monster let out an evil laugh and then began to walk around Luchs, as if a predator cornering his prey.
Luchesi kept a sharp eye on the beast, only to realize that he was fading away. Active camouflage, quite the adaptation for a monster like this. Luchesi turned his head from side to side to see if there was any sort of indication as to where he was. His senses weren't helping, all he could hear was the roaring and grunt of different monsters. Just as he turned his head to check behind himself, he saw a scythe-like claw swing down upon his left hand side. He reacted quickly by raising his left arm up to block at the joint of the scythe and its blade. The monster snarled in his face and then swung his other claw upon Luchesi's right hand side, giving him no real time to react beyond stepping inwards a bit more to avoid having the thing puncture his side. Instead, he received a clean cut across his bottom right hand side. He couldn't help but squint, though the pain he felt was numbed by the lack of nerves in his rocky exterior. "My turn" he grunted as he brought his right arm inwards to punch the monster's right arm right at the joint, crushing the exo-skeleton and effectively disabling, perhaps permanently, the extremity. A loud bug like snarl was let out throughout the arena, whereupon Luchesi headbutt him in the face, breaking a fang in half and disorienting the creature further.
He then threw the monster aside, whereupon Luchesi eyed it with his fists clenched. He was aiming to kill with those swings... Luchesi was defensive in nature, and his time in the arena had taught him how to fight with his move set well enough. Luchesi then eyed the smokescreen as it stayed put. Luchesi patted some of the bug blood off his shoulder and proceeded to walk towards the smokescreen, where he could see a monster stumbling out of the smoke in a blind rage. The first thing he saw: Ravager. "Is everyone out to kill today?" he said to himself as he clenched a fist and took a stance. Trouble was apparently his middle name today.
