As Feles rushed towards Hikaru, the latter screamed out loud a Japanese word Feles was somewhat familiar with and promptly summoned a myriad of gigantic floating blades into the battlefield. He however, kept running towards Hikaru, readying his claws to cut him down and, using his reflexes, Feles quickly side-stepped as the blades came down and homed on him, a task made difficult by the fact that the building was clearly going to collapse at any moment as the blades penetrated the roof.

However, this proved to be even more difficult when Feles realized Hikaru could control the blades, thus making him having to rely on his speed and dodging abilities to come out unscathed. While not a stranger to dodging fast, consecutive attacks on him, he did not know how Hikaru's special move worked to get close enough to him. The fact that Hikaru changed appearance meant that a regular stab could not work as usual.

"You have my thanks, Mr. Sato," Feles commented while keeping a calm visage (although anyone who had the luxury of observing the battle could tell that a slight smirk was on his lips), "it is an honor to hear that I am 'worth it'."

After narrowly dodging a serrated blade, he backflipped into another building, already telling that the one they were on was not going to last much longer.

While Hikaru's blades were directed towards him at the other building, Feles crossed his arms and slashed the air, forming an X-shaped shockwave directed at his opponent. This technique, while not being particularly powerful, was long-range and could poison Hikaru to the point of sapping his health fast enough. Besides poisoning and damaging Hikaru, the building was going to collapse at the moment the attack connected. Feles did not forget what he was here for: his target was getting away and he needed to get Hikaru out of the way, although judging by the latter's strength, Feles knew the battle would last a bit longer.

Somewhere, in an appropriately shadowy part of a deliberately-nondescript building in the Gotei 13's administrative district, an alarm was sounding. Workers scurried around, readings were checked, superiors were consulted. This activity could all be summed up quite neatly in the reaction of one such superior officer, when brought up to speed on the situation.
"He's doing what?"
"Th-the readings have been triple-checked, sir. Another spiritual energy reading is active in the area. It's hard to get a fix on, but everything seems to indicate it's Captain-class-plus. Captain Sato has gone off-mission and is, ah, fighting it."
Another ominous red light blinked into life on the control panel. The worker sat in front of it began to sweat profusely.
"He- ah, Captain Sato has- that is to say, he a-appears to have... activated his Bankai, sir."
"Bankai? Hell's sandy asshole, who gave him permission to do that? Who approved his limiter release?"
"N-nobody did, sir." At this point, the worker was trying his hardest to shrink into his swivel chair, hoping its worn, leathery folds would swallow him entirely. "The limiter, he... well, we think he removed it in transit. So to speak."
The officer groaned heavily. "Get an observation squad together. I want somebody out there so I can see what's going on." He turned around and stalked off.


The Living World

The ten blades Hikaru had sent after Feles bit deep into the crumbling surface of the roof and kept going, burrowing through floors and tearing great ragged holes in the structure. Office workers were, by now, fleeing the building in a panic, unable to see what was tearing their workplace to pieces.

Hikaru paid them no mind, unaware of any soul in the area other than his opponent. His pulse raced. He ran his tongue over his teeth, tracking Feles' moves with a few quick, animal-like twitches of his head. Yes, he was fast, very fast. The thought carried to Hikaru's legs, and he dashed after his opponent in a burst of Shunpo. The ten blades he'd kept in an orbiting guard came with him, swinging ahead in an instinctive reaction to Feles' ranged attack.

The attack hit Hikaru's guard while he was in midair between the two buildings, arresting his momentum and causing him to fall. He dropped freely. The swords that had been burrowing through the first building changed direction, bursting out the side and coming up underneath Hikaru. Catlike, he landed on the flat of one, and rode the swords into the side of the building Feles had landed on, burrowing through the wall.

Around him, he became dimly aware of humans screaming, but he dismissed them. He could feel the delicious, toxic-smelling spiritual pressure above him. Not knowing exactly where Feles was, he clenched a fist, sending a command to the blades that had blocked the venom attack to shred the top level of the building indiscriminately.

Perhaps he'd get lucky.

Once again, Hikaru sent forth his gigantic blades hoping to tear Feles to shreds. Feles stood still, with an expression on his face that could only be interpreted as one of boredom or lack of interest.

Indeed, at this stage of the battle, Feles had grown weary of dodging blades that would always follow him. While he liked that Mr. Sato was a high-level opponent, this cat-and-mouse game had become stale and Feles always liked some entertainment in his battles. This time, Feles decided the battle was as good as over, seeing how his earlier target was getting away and he had grown tired of this fight.

As the blades flew towards the top of the building where Feles had been standing at, he quickly traversed the building using his Flash Step-esque Ala skill and jumped into the lower floors of the building to reach Hikaru and slash him in an X-shaped pattern once again. He entered through a broken window, following Hikaru's monstruous aura signature to reach him.

The screaming masses were a liability as far as he was concerned, and he did not want witnesses, so he spread a mustard gas-like vapor as he entered the building. Hikaru would probably flee the building in an attempt to avoid falling prey to the deathly fumes, but that was no concern to Feles: as he observed earlier, Hikaru's speed was slightly inferior to his, and no matter what, Feles would definitely catch up to Hikaru by merely following his aura.

As he approached Hikaru's location, poison gas filling the halls of the office building, he zoomed in towards Hikaru, ready to deal the finishing blow. The slash, if it connected, would gravely paralyze and cripple Hikaru and leave him a sitting duck. Since Feles did mention he wanted Hikaru's body intact, he made his best effort not to damage any of his organs.

Hikaru

The panicked screams of the office workers were choked off as, one by one, they were smothered by Feles' toxic attack. Word of the poison gas only just managed to reach the emergency services before the staff all succumbed, and the rumours spread like wildfire. Soon, the local government were arranging emergency meetings, speaking of terrorism in hushed tones even as others scrambled to get emergency responses together.

None of this, however, was of any interest to Hikaru Sato, who was exactly where he wanted to be-in a fight to the death against a murderous opponent- and thus utterly unheeding of the people dying around him. What was a concern, however, was the toxic gas itself, which he certainly couldn't afford to ignore.

A bay of windows exploded outwards, showering glass down on the street below. Unseen by human eyes, the Captain clumsily landed on his feet, then stumbled, leaning heavily on a sword he clutched in his one good arm. His other arm had been sacrificed to take the brunt of Feles' X-slash, and from the shoulder down was shredded. It vaguely retained the shape of an arm- perhaps with immediate medical attention, it could be saved- and oozed a trail of blood. The blood was thicker and far less red than Hikaru figured was healthy. In the air around him, the other swords of his Bankai drifted lazily, slowly following him.

The poison was, by now, coursing through his bloodstream and filling his lungs. He hacked up a mouthful of some unidentifiable goop and turned back to face the building, a rictus grin on his face. No mistake about it, he was getting his ass good and kicked today, but he wasn't down yet.

Soul Society

"We have incoming!"
A fresh alarm began to sound in the shadowed operations room, leading the man in charge to consult a screen showing a map of the area. The counter showing the estimated number of civilian deaths was already appalling, but that wasn't what caught his attention. Instead, it was a large discoloured patch a few blocks from the combat zone, shrinking in on itself and becoming denser.
"A spatial warp? Where's it coming from?"
"It's not one of ours! Readings indicate Hollow spiritual pressure!"

Rush

Hands in pockets, eyes closed lazily, Rush felt the warm air on her face as the Garganta peeled open. Aggressive, angry spiritual pressure hit a second after the living world's wind, bringing with it a thrill of anticipation and a rumbling low in her stomach. She stepped through into empty air, following the spiritual smell of the delicacies that had brought her here. One was apparently severely damaged, ripe for the taking, though the other still felt threatening.

First things first. At a gesture, the Garganta slapped shut. There was little she could do to stop Soul Society finding out about her little excursion, but if she was quick she at least wouldn't have to share the banquet with other Hollows.

Tempting as it was to go straight for the prize, an appetiser was in order. Besides, a little extra energy wouldn't go amiss. Pursing her lips, Rush inhaled sharply, filling her lungs with air as a spiritual wind seemed to whip up across the town. People stumbled against the wind, fell, and did not rise. The souls, torn from their bodies, spiraled through the air towards the Arrancar, who at a single stroke wiped out half the town's population. For one who had been the embodiment of natural disaster, it seemed only fitting. But it was too clean, not destructive enough, and for this reason she did not attempt to use her gonzui on the whole town at once.

That, and it seemed fun to announce her presence to the combatants below.

As expected, the people inside the buildings died without making much of a fuss. As the workers dropped down like flies and the town of Raibo was slowly being put into a state of emergency, Feles set his sights on Hikaru as the latter jumped down from a window to several stories below.

However, he noticed another presence appearing in Raibo, one that belonged to an Arrancar. Feles was familiar with Arrancar, to the point of counting one of them as an ally. He noticed Rush using a technique that made more of the screaming masses go quiet; certainly the vast majority of Raibo was dead and gone by this point. Feles recognized the technique as being very effective against humans without any strength at all, and his earlier target had a fair amount of power, so he remained calm as usual. There were two others like him in Raibo in pursuit of their intended target in any case, so he decided to just get rid of Hikaru and that other witness.

'Now that's interesting,' he thought as he leaped out of the window, launched a ball of corrosive acid at Rush's direction and rushed using Ala to deal a finishing blow to Hikaru by slashing him with both his hands. Many people had died this early in the battle, but given the very high body count Feles had to his name and the possibly destructive capabilities of this newcomer, hundreds of thousands more would follow.

Rush

The sleepy Espada hadn't chosen the site of her expedition at random, nor was she here just for human souls. There was a certain prize she was after, something delicious to scavenge. Although, she noted with some irritation, said prize was in danger of being broken.

Something small shot in her direction, dripping hissing fluids. Rush decided that trying to dodge the projectile, whatever it was, would be bothersome, so instead she elected to respond in kind. Her mouth dropped open, disgorging a wave of darkly glowing energy that vaguely resembled a very rough-shaped Cero of large proportions. The beam engulfed the acid, boiling it away in flight, before carrying on its way and carving a chunk from the side of a parking garage.

Before the Cero faded away, Rush was on the move. Though far from the fastest of the Espada, she was able to get just close enough to deploy her insurance.

Walls of pale yellow light crackled into view around Hikaru, cutting off what he could still see of the outside world through his foggy vision. His various Bankai swords fell to the ground and began to fade from view as their master's spiritual energy was cut off by the Negacion box. The box was issued to the Espada ostensibly as a means of punishing wayward subordinates, but Rush personally knew of only a few times when it had been used as such. Espada, as a rule, tended to be oddly creative, usually going for more unique punishments while turning the Negacion to other purposes- in this case, preserving an individual she intended to later devour.

Rush came to a halt in midair a few storeys above ground level, close enough for the other fighter to hear, but still keeping a wary distance.
"I like what you've done with the place," she began, "but I'm claiming that Captain for myself, while he's still worth eating."

There were two things Feles was not expecting. First: this newcomer being about as strong as his previous target, being capable of doing away with his acid technique seemingly without putting too much effort into it. The second one: she locked away Mr. Sato out of Feles's reach before he could finish him off. It was clear to him that he had become rusty and that he would be taking his metaphorical gloves off for this round of the battle.

The reason would have been something as simple as feeling infuriated at someone else taking away his target, but in reality, this 'hole woman' was in his way and she was as worth it as his previous target judging by her monstruous aura. True enough, he needed to know how to get the Death God out of his prison, but he figured this could be done the way it has always worked for him: asking the newcomer nicely to get him out.

He turned to look at Rush in the eye, somehow making it pretty clear he was going after her now.

"It was really nothing," he shot back at Rush, referencing her compliment, "Someone as beautiful as you deserves an equally breathtaking gravesite."

The instant he ended his sentence, he leaped to Rush's position, crossing his arms to slash her. The speed at which he moved was fast enough to catch most opponents off-guard. His aim was to paralyze her and deal enough damage that she was not finished as she needed her alive to know how to get Hikaru out, but the difference in power between both fighters might have become clear to Rush.
